In spite of that, it  appears nothing has been  resolved in the matter and last  Friday Mike Welsh held a press  conference to announce his  client's intention of pursuing  legal action against the Town of  Gibsons.  According to Welsh,,''It has  been Skip Reeves'wishtrom'th'e  beginning that this not become  a litigation matter." His only  desire, according to his lawyer,  has been to have an opportunity  to hear the reasons for his  dismissal, have council hear the  reasons and have an opportunity to answer the complaints in  front of council. This would  give council the opportunity,  "...to render an informed decision on whether termination  was justified."  However, that opportunity  has not been available, Welsh  said. The meeting between the  parties and council was quickly  aborted on the advice of the  town's lawyer ���and ReevesYwas  not given the^bp^ff&nit^-to"  speak to the issue.  Aldermen Lilian Kunstler  and Ken Collins confirmed they,  had not had a chance to hear  Reeves' response.  Welsh will be applying to the  Supreme Court on Reeves'  behalf to have the resolution to  dismiss him quashed. He maintains that the termination  violates the Municipal Act and  the law.  There are two grounds for  appealing the resolution under  the Municipal Act, according to  Welsh.  First, Reeves will maintain  that he has been functioning as  ���an bffiper .for the stown (in an  ���y^gtrfe'er y!s c a pa>d t y ������, kn.d.:  /therefore the split vote which  -'resulted in his termination did  not have' the requisite two-thirds  majority vote in favour.  Secondly, Welsh said the  council has illegally delegated its  authority for firing Reeves to  the Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard. Council never  passed a by-law delegating that  authority to Goddard and  although a resolution of council  confirmed the dismissal, at least  one alderman, Gerry Dixon, has  publicly admitted he had no  knowledge of the reasons  behind the administrator's  Please turn to page 4  On the inside  Restructuring raises hackles  P.2  A look back at Chinese history........... .P. 2  Free traders favoured  ........P. 2  i Letters to the Editor..^. ..���,,;......,., ���P.3&J7  ''* Ratepayers resurrected ^A':^'^yp^9'}  Gibsons Water Sports..,." ...P. 10  Channel Eleven. ....P. 12  Written Arts Festival..'.. ...P. 13  New regional powers P. 18  Vandalism at Ruby Lake p. 22  Restructuring impact  SCRD directors fear effects  by Ellen Frith  mi-  %  M  *** *  $$������  Jrfa-  mi-  Vtik-  Ss.i -  m  f  lt�����  Using numbers generated in  the same manner as the annual  tax requisitions, Area E Director Jim Gurney presented the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) at its board  meeting July 28 with what he  said was evidence that a restructuring of Areas E and F with the  Town of Gibsons would have a  definite impact on the people  living in the other four areas of  the regional district.  Gurney compiled figures of a  tax requisition comparison  before and after the proposed  restructuring and arrived at differences indicating a definite  rise in the cost sharing expenditures in Areas A through D.  Simply put, according to the  information Gurney presented  to the regional board, the cost  of regional district functions  which are presently split among  six members of the district  would be averaged out among;  the remaining four members if  there was a restructuring of the  eastern section of the Coast.  Gurney used planning,  building inspection, community  parks and the economic  development commission as examples where the loss of Areas  E and "F with their tax base  would have the greatest impact  on the other areas. There are  other functions where there  would be no impact if restructuring proceeded.      Y  Gurney asked the SCRD to  advise the Minister of  Municipal Affairs of its concerns regarding the impact of  restructuring on the remaining  areas now that the Town of  Gibsons has formally requested  Victoria to consider the restructuring of the town with Areas E  and F.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson agreed and said, "The  people of Area A will have no  vote but the impact on them will  be great."  He stated his concern regarding the pressures of development in his area which he said  were "unmatched" and of the  regional quality of the "common community" of the Sunshine Coast.  "The loss of Areas E and F,"  Area D Director Brett  McGillivray said, "definitely  impacts on us who do not have  a vote."  "We have established there  will be a definite impact on the  people in the other areas,"  SCRD Administrator Larry  Jardine told the Coast News.  He feels the Minister of  Municipal Affairs should be  made aware of the problems in  the regional district that would  need to be addressed if restructuring proceeds.  It was also felt that the Town  of Gibsons and the Restructuring Advisory Commission  should present the board with  all the information they have on  what the potential impact on the  other areas in the district would  be after restructuring.  The numbers he presented the  board with, Gurney said, were  the. kind of information he had  originally asked the Restructuring Committee to provide in the  Moore Report.  More vandalism  The Sunshine Coast Regional District's Parks Committee  recommended at its July 27 meeting, that it now keep a running tally of what vandalism is costing the district after a particularly bad period of malicious damage to public properly  in the Coast's parks.  The worse case occurred at Dan Bosch Park near Ruby  Lake (see story elsewhere in this paper), but there was damage  as well at the Roberts Creek Beach Area and at Secret Beach  Public Beach Access in Cibsons.  The parks committee hopes the public will keep an eye out  for incidences of vandalism in the parks.  SCRD bails out  Gibsons Library  The Sunshine Coast Regional District boardr&t' directors  voted on July 27 to advance Gibsons Library $^00 t?�� allow it  to continue to operate until the proposed referendum is  taken.  Without this funding for the months oX July and August.  Area K Director Jim Gurney said, "T^ere may not be a  library there to support when we have the referendum."  These monies for the library are to cone out of the regional  district's contingency funds. Library funding for May and  June were from Grants and Aids.  Breakthrough boost  for Coast transit  by Ruth Forrester  It really was a 'breakthrough'  when the latest addition to the  transit service on the Sunshine  Coast made its debut on Saturday, July 29 at the Trail Bay  Centre.  Master of Ceremonies Gordon Wilson invited dignitaries  to hold the banner for the new  minibus to drive through,  following which guests boarded  the van for a short tour of the  area and on to the Wharf  Restaurant for lunch.  The Sunshine Coast  Paratransit System, operated by  the Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society, now provides  the services of two such  vehicles, the first of which went  into service seven years ago.  "The demand for transportation on the Sunshine Coast is  there," said Sunshine Coast  Regional District Chairman  Peggy Connor, "and this new  25-passenger Champion van  will go some way towards satisfying that need. From our present annual ridership of 15,000  people, 1 think we will get close  to 25,000 passengers a year very  soon.

This misses the point.  There are few pure villains among us, inside or out of  political office or public position. We are all of us doing  the best we can, for the most part, whatever our role.  It is necessary to separate a nice person of the community with the performance of that nice person in  public office. When the process becomes muddied or  the practice lax, those who have sought and gained  public position must be held accountable, not for their  entire lives and habits, but for their performance in their  public function.  It is a distinction which may not be easy to make but  which must be made if government is to work well. To  gain office is to be held accountable for your performance in that office.  Being able to make such distinction is what leads to  intelligent' voting, which in turn leads to good government.  5 YEARS AGO  The long awaited and controversial marina is showing evidence of becoming a reality with the installation  of the floats this last week. But several new questions  have arisen. Some of the concerns are the inaccessibility of the launching ramp, maneuvering problems for  large boats and a high spot at the corner of the marina.  An official letter has been received stating that MacMillan Bloedel Limited "wishes to withdraw our application to perform "hack and squirt' with 2, 4-D on the  following sites," and lists all Sunshine Coast sites included in the application except D.L. 1625 on Conrad  Road.  After weeks of public and private deliberations, the  Sunshine Coast Regional Board at its regular meeting  of July 26 gave third and final reading to by-law 264; the  comprehensive and explicit document regulating the  use of land, buildings and structure with zones.  "There is any amount of opportunity in fish farming,"  said Brad Hope of Tidai Rush Marine Farms of Nelson  Island. "We're right at the base of a whole new industry,  and there are no guidelines. It's no longer 'can it be  done', but "how will it be done'. We have the opportunity  to shape it into anything we want it to be."  The Sunshine Coast Peace Committee has-a variety ��  of activities planned for Monday, August 6 at the Arts  Council in Sechelt. This year's theme is, "No More  Hiroshimas'.  10 YEARS AGO  Benefits are already being felt from the completion of  the long-awaited 14-inch water main across the Utilities  Corridor to West Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay, which was  opened July 26.  Roberts Creek Lions hope to undertake the biggest  program in Lions Club history with the approval of a proposed project to train purebred German Shepherds and  Black Labradors as seeing-eye dogs. Only five per cent  of every litter of pups can be trained and the training  program lasts three years.  Roberts Creek Lions have received SCRD approval to  develop the Roberts Creek Park.  20 YEARS AGO  Senior Secondary Principal and Municipal Alderman  Tom Elwood, described as a livewire', is leaving Gold  River to take up residence in Gibsons, where he will be  principal of Elphinstone.  Elwood describes his decision to leave Gold River,  where he has lived for two years, as the second hardest  decision he has ever had to make. The first was getting  married.  30 YEARS AGO  Michael Douglas Poole of Granthams Landing has  been awarded a Dudley A. White scholarship at  Washington and Lee University for 'deserving journalism".  A subdivision with a great future is now on the  market, announces Harold Wilson of Totem Realty.  Georgia Views, the former Dougall Bluff, provides 92  lots, many with views unparalleled in British Columbia.  40 YEARS AGO  Howe Sound Co-operative Canning Association in a  letter to the Gibsons Board of Trade has pointed out  that freight rates are liable to drive them out of  business. The letter points out that freight costs on a  case of jam are as high between Gibsons and Vancouver as between Vancouver and Alberta.  The^ Sunshine  tlWi  Flushed by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

Since this short piece purports  to be something of a response, I  suggest that Mr. Gurney's letter  is pre-requisite reading.  Now that you have read the  views of Mr. Gurney, please  bear with me whilst I preamble  these remarks by observing that  very few people are comfortable  and knowledgable about  municipal financing; that  recently Bill 19 has changed the  ground rules for regional  districts (See page 18) to the  point where Mr. Gurney himself  pronounces it bewildering; and  that the whole question of  restructuring is so fraught locally with passionate misconceptions and prejudices, some of  which is carefully fanned by the  same Mr. Gurney, that any  reporter attempting to come to  grips with the problem is sure to  bring down wrath on his or her  head no matter how valiant an  attempt is made to be informative.  Having said that let me  acknowledge, as the individual  responsible for the headlines on  the front page last week, that  the headline was the most  misleading thing about Penny  Fuller's story. It was made in  haste, sought to reflect the  story, but probably did not do  so.  On behalf of a fair-minded  and hardworking reporter, 1  must observe that when Director Gurney professes himself  "disgusted" at what he calls "a  shameful shallow deception" I  find his indignation shallow and  unconvincing.  It is true that the loss of Area  E and F would have a considerable impact on the political  entity known as the Sunshine  Coast Regional District; that it  would have a negative impact  on the taxpayers of the Sunshine Coast is the substance of  the debate, as I understand it.  It is Mr. Gurney's preference  to make a political structure in  which he has invested an enormous amount of his time,  energy, and talent synonymous  with the well-being of taxpayers  on the Sunshine Coast. This is  understandable but it is not a  position universally held.  We have reported prominently this week the concerns expressed most recently by the  directors of the SCRD. The enduring weakness of their position, it seems to me, is that there  is no clear indication that in a  turbulent and confusing circumstance with what appears to  be the question of change and  its value being debated amongst  us, these prominent local  leaders are able to do anything  but defend the status quo  -because they are comfortable  with it, or because it favours  taxpayers whom they represent.  The question is whether there  is a formula for local government which can be found which  will remove what some perceive  to be inequities, whether  restructuring now or a positive  counter proposal that can lead  to a more equitable, efficient  system. Merely to be opposed to  change is unlikely to assure the  future, any more than is a blind  faith in change for the sake of  change.  In a nutshell  TRT'  Looking back at Chinese history  by S. Nutter  Given the disappointment, or  outrage or just plain bafflement  that events in China have  brought us lately, a useful book  I've found has been Harrison  Salisbury's The Long March.  This is the story of the clash >  and movement of armies which  allowed the beginnings of communist China. It mostly took  place between 1934 and 1937.  But the protagonists, those who  survived, are with us today.  They are the 80 year olds who  are now running China. It is  they who fired on the students  in Tianamen Square.  Going back to the long march  these days can be a salutary experience. This is without question an epic up there with the  Argonauts, Charlemagne,  anything else in story or legend;  but here we have the veritable  Tyner Talk  heroes, still vigorous in their old  age, sending tanks against their  own students who are asking, it  would seem, only for the  minimum of what we would  consider the basic freedoms.  Salisbury, a New York limes  correspondent many years in  Moscow, had long wanted to  write this book but had been  denied the freedom to do so by  the Chinese until early in the  eighties. By then he and his  wife, who went along, were at  the end of their sixties.  This made a difference.  Salisbury, a scrupulous  historian, was determined to go  back over the whole gruelling  route the harried armies had  taken. Much of this, today as  then, can only be done on foot  or horseback.  The route goes over mountains, across wide, fast running  rivers, through country where  there's still little to eat (the impoverished illiterate people for  generations sodden with  opium), through vast uninhabited muskeg swamps up on the  borders of Tibet, where many  of the marchers slipped off the  only path and simply disappeared into the surrounding  bog.  Through most of the way  they were performing extraordinary forced marches, moving  without rest night and day, and  time after time slipping out,  with seemingly impossible  chances, of encirclement by the  much stronger armies of Chiang  Kai-Sheck.  As they went they kept up a  vigorous and well organized  campaign for the new China for  which they fought. The army,  though often almost starving,  was kept strongly disciplined  against looting the countryside  and towns along the way. As far  as possible they paid their way,  though often it is true with I  owe you's; no bank at that time  would have dreamed of discounting. However, they did  what they could do under what  seems the worst of circumstances and they did it in  the name of communism and  socialism^ and, they said,  democracy.  Fifty years later, with the remaining heroes still in charge,  there's no question that the  means of production remain in  the hands of the government.  But is the government the people? In other words, what happened to the democracy part?  Socialism and democracy are  not the same, and maybe it's  worth reminding ourselves that  any time they don't go along  together, democracy's the one  that must come first.  Favouritism for freetraders  by James H. Tyner  The prime minister assured us  that with the signing of the Free  Trade Agreement with the  United States, Canada was on  the threshold of unimagined  prosperity: Of course there were  going to be a few minor adjustments but, by and large,  prosperity would sweep the  country.  Although times are fairly-  prosperous still, all we have  heard about so far are those  minor adjustments with plants  closing because of their inability  to compete. Should economic  conditions deteriorate, competition will be intensified and the  situation worsen. Cost of production is the primary factor  and the oppressive tax system  will hinder Canada.  Of course the federal government is in a difficult position  with an annual deficit exceeding  $30 billion and a total debt expecting to be in excess of $350  billion by year end. The cost of  government is too high and with  each budget the situation does  not materially improve.  While the United States is  considering lowering and  ultimately eliminating tax on  capital gain, Canada is increasing the tax. In addition Canada  has imposed a tax on investment  capital, has increased sales tax  and has raised taxes generally.  The tax burden together with  other inequities will make competition in a free market difficult for Canada.  The Free Trade Agreement  was the key issue in the recent  federal election and many companies spent large sums of  money in support of free trade  while others spent just as much  in opposing it. The decision being based on where they felt  their interests lay.  In this regard it was interesting to read an article in the  Western Producer of June 1,  1989 wherein it is indicated that  for companies that spent money  promoting the Free Trade  Agreement, Revenue Canada is  allowing them to deduct the expenditure as a cost of doing  business.  However the department has  disallowed the deduction for  those companies who spent  money in opposition to the Free  Trade Agreement. When questioned on this, the department  explained that free trade could  be a direct benefit to business  while to oppose it was a political  matter.  PENDER HARBOUR  We hear that the regional  board is about ready to present  us with a new zoning by-law.  In its application, we hope  they have shown concern for the  environment and for the interests of the residents and that  particular consideration has  been given both to the  maintenance of the beauty of  the area and to the nature of the  area with its steep foreshore, the  low absorption capability of  much of the soil, the limited  supply of water and that the  necessity of a community  sewage system may be beyond  the resources of the community.  It is understood that in the  new by-law there will be 19  zones with parcel sizes ranging  from 750 square metres to 3500  square metres. It is further  understood that the Area Planning Commission, upon which  real estate and land development interests seem to be so well  represented, will be endeavouring to persuade us as to the  wisdom of the proposed  change.  i '; gaapnyrgerjneffivs^r^  ti~h��' ���mil' w '  Coast News, July 31,1989  *�� Special   * *  BIG BAND CRUISE  Aboard The STAR DANCER  Editor:  1 must register my disgust at  your front page article in the July 24 edition which sets out t<'  challenge the "veracity" of the  residents' restructure information brochure.  The intent of the article is  clearly to promote the misconception that the residents of this  Coast receive no direct benefit  from property taxes paid by  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper.  Your reporter attempts to build  this case by confusing provincial  grants with tax revenues to the  Regional District. This is  nothing more than a shameful,  shallow deception.  Mr. Trimmer of Municipal  Affairs, who is quoted in the article, is puzzled as to how his  remarks could have been used  to develop such an ambiguous  and misleading piece of jour-  ilism. He offered his apology  lor any part his remarks may  have played in this ;iii<;n ;H to  confuse the public.  1 am enclosing documents to  show the direct relationship between taxes paid by Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper and revenues  received by the Regional  District. This evidence clearly  proves that the article is wrong  in its premise that there is  "direct relationship between  taxes paid...by the mill... on  residential tax rates".  Your reporter assured me  that a front page retraction  would be forthcoming if the article was wrong. In the face of  the evidence I am presenting I  hereby call for that retraction.  I would suggest that the  responsibility of a reputable  newspaper should be to inform  its readers not mislead them. 1  would also suggest that if the  local papers could be relied  upon to publish clear, factual  information on the restructure  issue, then there would be no  need for the residents of this  community to take on that responsibility themselves.  J. Gurney  Director, Area E  Editor's note:   See Musings.  Queen is grateful  Editor:  I wish to thank all the people  involved in this year's Sea  Cavalcade and Pageant. Your  hard work has made it all possible. A very special thank you to  my sponsor, Leeward Clothing  Group and my escort, Mr. Ron  Whitney.  Council is doing its best  Editor:  First of all, I want to commend Mayor Diane Strom and  her council on trying to run this  town to the best of their ability.  I for one, am really getting  sick and tired of hearing about'  the termination of the employment of Mr. Reeves. If one of  the reasons is because he has  been doing favours without going through the proper channels, then he should be fired just  as any employee in any other  job would be.  I'm sure there is more to this  whole thing than we know  about. I have known Mrs. Goddard for many years and find it  hard to believe that she would  not   conduct   herself   in   an  honourable way. She is both  trustworthy and hardworking.  If there was reason for termination then I for one would stick  up for her.  I also support the purchase of  the waterfront park. It would be  inspiring to see some of our  energetic locals busying  themselves with getting that  area filled, leveled and fixed up.  Be much more self satisfying  than questioning our council on  its every move.  Maybe even the two papers  could choose opposite sides and  we would really make a public  circus out of it. That park  though, seriously, is truly an  asset and will prove to be a wise  investment in our's and our  children's future. Why can't we  all pitch in together and make  out little town one of the prettiest in the west. Couldn't you  picture a gazebo or a bandstand  in the downtown area?  I'm glad that Mayor Strom  has taken a stand and shown  her opinion on drugs. We are  not helping our kids by turning  the other cheek and hoping the  problem will go away. I'd love  to see and be active in a program within our own community such as Breakaway, or  something similar. Mrs. April  MacKenzie-Moore tried to do  something in this direction, but  received no encouragement  from parents or schools that I  know of.  Eunice Richardson  Thank you to all the judges  who gave their time to all  pageant contestants.  Also, a very warm thank you  to all the business merchants  who contributed gifts for the  1989 Queen's Pageant.  I would sincerely like to congratulate and thank all my  fellow contestants. Without you  there would be no Miss Gibsons  1989!  I look forward to representing the Town of Gibsons in the  forthcoming year.  ��� Roxanne Wiseman  ' Miss Gibsons 1989.  ���>vr.-.

Bahu'u'llah  Press articles disturbing  Editor:  I have been extremely disturbed by a number of articles  and editorials appearing in the  Press recently. They are all  directed at eliminating the  French language from our  country and in preventing the  recruitment of Sihks into the  RCMP, It is interesting to note  that virtually all of these articles  use the American spelling as do  others written by their top  reporter.  Although I am an anglophone, 1 am proud to be fluently bilingual and it gives me great  satisfaction to be able to converse with our fellow Canadians  in their native tongue. They  were co-founders of this nation  and are entitled by law to  preserve   their   language   and  culture in any region of the  country.  It therefore shocked me to be  presented with a petition to sign  in Sechelt yesterday demanding  that our country become unil-  ingual English speaking only.  Concurrently I was asked to  sign a petition preventing Sihks  from besoming members of the  RCMP and wearing their traditional headdress.  During the war it was my  privilege to serve as a pilot with  Sihks who wore their traditional  turban with their uniform and  they were undoubtedly some of  the bravest and congenial  members we had.  Subsequently I served with  high ranking Sihk officers from  India who reinforced the opinion   that   they  would  make  superb members of any police  or armed force.  It is inconceivable that we  have in our midst in this community rednecks who would initiate such repulsive action that  smacks of McCarthyism. Who  will be next? The Chinese?,  Japanese?, Koreans?, Irish?  Native Indians?, anyone who  looks or prays differently? ^ ,,  This great country is made up �� *  of a mosaic of ethnic groups,    *  each of which contributes to our  culture in its own sriecial way,   ���  Let's stamp out this insidious"  elitism   before   it   becomesv a  dangerous canker.

McDowell gets it wrong  Editor:  In a recent report on a  restructuring handbill, Press  reporter Jim McDowell errored  three times in references to a  conversation with me.  1. He did not ask if Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper Limited  had contributed financially to  the publication but only if we  had contributed information. If  asked, I would have told him  that I was approached by John  Shaske who, with Jim Gurney,  heads the Restructuring Information Committee. He requested a donation to pay part  of the cost to print and mail information about restructuring  which would balance the well-  funded blitz by the Restructuring Advisory Committee. Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper Limited  responded with a cheque for  $1000.  2. I did not say that I had  spoken to Jim Bartley because,  on the spur of the moment, I  couldn't recall his name.  3.

Owned by The North West Life Assurance Company  of Canada, the Cedar's Inn is the first major hotel to be constmcted in Gibsons in years. The Inn is  equipped with full banquet facilities and recreation amenities that include a sauna, hot tub, health  room and an outdoor heated swimming pool. Completion of the rooms in June, the hotel has averaged an 84 per cent occupying rate. ���Vern Elliott photo  Theatre Heritage co-operation  y    After three years of a massive  ���'��� fundraising effort, the Gibsons  :" Landing Theater  project  has  been forced to downscale its  ;������ ambitions. It recently announced that plans for a major theatre  complex in Lower Gibsons have  . been abandoned but in a letter  ; received   by  Gibsons  Council  last week, it outlined plans for a  less elaborate development.  In its letter to council, the  board of directors for the society thanked it for its 'conditional  allocation of the old fireball  property' for the previous project, regretting "the circumstances which caused a last  minute switch of expected  government funds (both provincial and federal) to an alternate  project in Sechelt."  The society then outlined its  plans to ask donors to allow the  pledged monies to be used to  refurbish the interior of the  Women's Institute Hall. It will  cost almost $100,000 to convert  the hall into a 160 seat theatre  and the society is in a position  to pick up the bill, if donors  agree.  The project would be a joint  venture with the Gibsons  Heritage Society which would  be responsible for the $50,000  required to repair the outside of  the building.  A new society formed from  the two groups and other relevant agencies would be responsible for the operation and  management of the theatre. If  the concept is accepted by both  societies and Gibsons Council,  it was suggested that the Town  of Gibsons provide a 10 year  lease for the group at an annual  rent of $1.   ^  ,4ln these negotiations it must  be recognized that the primary  objective of this undertaking is  to bring good theatre, both  locally produced and imported,  to the Sunshine Coast, in a  facility equipped to enable the  audience to see and hear the  performances properly, in comfortable seating. The facility  would be made available for  other community activities,  especially the training of young  people in Theatre Arts," the letter explained.  Council accepted the letter as  information on the instructions  Transit breakthrough  Continued from page 1  Several dignitaries took part  in the ceremony, including BC  Transit Division Manager Ron  Drolet, Mayor Tom Meredith  and President of the Sunshine  Coast Community Services  Society Hilary Estergaard.  All residents of the Sunshine  Coast will benefit from this additional service as this second  minibus will provide regular fixed route transit connecting West  Sechelt, Sechelt. Roberts Creek,  Gower Point Road, Gibsons  and the Langdale Fern.1 Terminal. Service will operate every  two hours. Monday through  Saturday between Sechelt and  Gibsons.  Three trips per day will ser  vice the Langdale Ferry Teminal  meeting the 8:30 am, 12:30 pm  and 4:30 pm ferry sailings.  Four trips per week will also  service Redrooffs and Halfmoon Bay. The new service will  free up the existing minibus to  provide door to door sen ice for  the disabled.  To celebrate the opening of  the new expanded service the  Sunshine Coast Paratransit  System is having a seat sale. On  Monday and Tuesday, July 31  and August 1, all fares will only  be a quarter. That includes door  to door service.  New timetables have been  mailed to all residents of the service area. For more information  call transit information at  SS5-3234.

Continued from page 1  recommendation but voted for  the termination on her advice  only.  Welsh has also advised the  town that should Mr. Reeves  receive a proper hearing, where  council is told the reasons for  his dismissal and he has an opportunity to answer, he is  prepared to drop the litigation. ���  In the meantime, Welsh expects to make an appearance in!  Supreme Court before August:  14, where the case will either be  heard or he will apply for an injunction which would enable  Reeves to continue in his current capacity until a decision is  rendered by the court. His termination date is set for August  15.  In responding to questions  from the Coast News, Alderman Collins said he would like  to comply with the request for a  proper hearing.  "I would hope that something like that would happen. It  seems like the mature way to  deal with things," he said.  Alderman Kunstler agreed,  "We should explore every  avenue we can to avoid litigation and costing the taxpayers  money."  Mayor   Diane   Strom   was  unaware of the turn of events  when contacted. She did insist, .  however, that Reeves had an  opportunity to speak but his  lawyer did all the talking. Further, she maintains that council  has given all aspects of the  situation thorough consideration.  "We met from 8:30 until  12:30 the other night going over  this thing," she said.  The cost to the town has not  yet been estimated by its lawyer,  if the case is fought in Supreme  Court, Strom said. The council  will be issuing a statement next  week.  2ND ANNUAL  SELF GOVERNMENT  RUN  THE STARTING TIME OF THE RUN !S PRECISELY.  9:00 AM, OCTOBER 9, 1989  START AT THE JOLLY ROGER  12.4 miles along Highway 101  to S.E.D.

She was a Grade 7 pupil, just  back to school after a long stay  in hospital - the empty sleeve  and a head of hair just beginning to grow in again were the  wordless clues to those of us  there at the tea.

DPI \ 7 IMVS  \ Wl IK  That was Roxanne Wiseman,  the young lady who just over a  week ago was crowned Sea  Cavalcade Queen and was  chosen by ballot by her fellow  contestants to be 'Miss Congeniality'. This latter is recognition by her peers of a sweet personality. And their respect and  admiration for her.  Her pluck has put her past illness and the handicap it has left  her into perspective.  Last Thursday on Channel 8,  Roxanne said to the interviewer,  "I had cancer of the bone and it  meant an arm or me. And 1  thought 1 can be me without  that right arm. And that's what   _  I've been able to do."  Roxanne enters Grade 12 this  fail. Her ambitions? Well, she  hasn't dismissed the thought of  becoming a model. "My height  could be an asset in that profession."  She is thinking seriously,  though, of a master's degree in  psychology. Then she could  meet the challenge of working  with handicapped children as a  career.  She has been a counsellor  these past two years at Camp  Goodtimes held in our Camp  Byng. Before that she was there  as a camper for two years.  What a tremendous example  her buoyant spirit and her  understanding is to those  youngsters who, like her some  years ago, have just been smitten with cancer.  Marion Alsager, the lady who  looks after the Cavalcade  Queen Contest, said it for all of  us who salute the stout-hearted  outlook and the self-reliant  spirit of this young lady.  "Everybody   felt   so   good  when she was acclaimed Queen  and Miss Congeniality."  AROUND GIBSONS  The Kids' Fishing Derby continued its traditional part in the  Sea Cavalcade festivities this  year when 138 youngsters came ,  to the dock to try their luck and  skill.

They are willing to  pay for a fairly new one. Do  you know of someone moving  who would like to sell their  fridge? Please phone me at the  above number.

PIONEER PICNIC  There will be no flyers  delivered door to door this year  concerning the Pioneer Picnic.  It takes place at Whitaker Park  and Hall on August 27, from 2  until 6 pm.  Instead we suggest you invite  all the new neighbours in your  block. Tell them to read here  for more information as the  date approaches, and make a  point to remind them. In fact,  suggest you will see them there.  A special invitation goes to all  remaining 'Pioneers' who  helped make Whitaker Park or  worked on the community hall.  You know who you are and we  ask that you join us.  Two more of our Pioneers  have passed on recently. Bob  Keeley and Harold Aubin did  much toward the formation and  maintenance of Whitaker Park  and community facilities. In  later years their interests went to  other causes and took them  away from community involvement but they had already paid  their dues in days long gone.  WELCOME HOME  Mrs. R.

HAWK WATCHING  Have you ever tried to mow a  lawn while a large Red Tailed  Hawk circled overhead with a  snake in its beak? This happened to me.  Not only that, three crows  were harassing it. One even collided with it, creating a flurry of  wings while each tried to regain  its equilibrium. Fortunately, the  snake remained clamped in the  hawk's beak.  Off to the south east, two  bald eagles circled lazily,  oblivious to the drama not far  from them. At the same time  helicopters were busily doing  something important no doubt.  Certainly did make it dfficult to  concentrate on lawn mowing.  Roberts    Creek  Creek Fires  by Jeanie Parker 885-2163  Roberts Creek Firemen aren't  havings such a quiet summer  after all. They had two major  fires in less than a week; one of  them the worst most of the  volunteers have seen.  Last Thursday they were called to the old Grauer residence  on Lockyer Road. The new  owners were sitting down to  supper when the smoke detector  went off, just giving the family  time to get out of the house.  The wooden A-frame went  very quickly and a trip upstairs  to retrieve some valuables  resulted in second-degree burns  to the arms.

The house was totally  destroyed, along, with the contents, many of which hadn't  even been unpacked. The  firemen worked until midnight,  pouring an estimated 20,000  gallons of water on the blaze  which also destroyed surrounding trees. Gibsons Fire Department assisted with two trucks  and personnel and Swanson's  Ready-Mix truck provided extra  tanker capacity since there are  no hydrants above the highway.  The previous Friday the  firemen responded to a call just  before 4 am at the Balfour  residence on Beach Avenue. A  cottage on the beach and the  contents of a carport were lost  in the fire but there were no injuries. Nearby trees also caught  fire but fortunately things aren't  as dry as usual with all the rain  we've had this year.

This creates a rapid  lack of appetite and a morbid  fascination at the aerial antics  of the snake.  Seagulls abound here on the  Coast. Most people take them  for granted, never stopping to  admire their effortless soaring,  sleek feather arrangement etc. I  feed one daily.  It has become so tame, it  knocks on the door to let me  know it is there. That makes me  think it's smart until I see it land  smack dab in the middle of the  only potted plant sitting on 20  feet of 2 x 4 inch railing.  While sitting at Sargent Bay  one afternoon my husband and  I observed the strange actions of  a seagull. It was about 15 feet  from shore.  Suddenly it rose off the water  about a foot then dived in. It  never became completely  submerged and it continued to  do this for over five minutes.  We have never seen this  behaviour before nor since.  Usually a seagull is not thought  of as a diving bird.  There are at least three  ospreys patrolling the beach  from Davis Bay to Trail Bay  daily. One of the few birds that  can hover, an act which immediately draws the eye and  quickly identifies the performer.  Have you observed an  unusual behaviour in the area  birds or animals?

The Seventh  Annual Festival of the Written  Arts people are very busy just  now with the great event little  more than a week away.  This year's line-up of  celebrities is the most ambitious  to date, so excitement is running  high. As with any production  and   especially   one   of   this  magnitude there are a million  jobs to be done and only a certain number of people to do  them.  The Festival people would  appreciate a hand, just an hour  or two, on the three days of the  Festival. So if you have time,  and you crave excitement and  fun, volunteer for a couple of  hours. You won't regret it.  Get in touch with Betty Keller  at    885-3589   or   call    the  Volunteer Action Centre.  CRAFT FAIR  The Second Annual Sunshine  Coast Craft Fair will be held in  Hackett Park, Sechelt on Saturday and Sunday, August 5 and  6 from 10 to 4 pm. All kinds of  jewellery, pottery, carvings and  ngedkwork will be on display.  Come out and have a look  around, you may be pleasantly  surprised. We are luckv to have  a lot of very talented people living here on the Sunshine Coast.  Admission to the Fair is $1,  children 50 cents.  TEEN DANCE  Saturday, August 5 is the new  date for the Sechelt Summer  Teen Dance, and the new location is the Sechelt Senior's Hall  on Mermaid Street.  GOOD CITIZEN  Sechelt and District Chamber  of Commerce is looking for  nominations once again for the  next Good Citizen of the year.  If you know of someone you  would like to nominate for this  honour, send a letter, not more  than 100 words, to: Good  Citizen, Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce, Box  360, Sechelt. Deadline for  nominations is Saturday,  September 9, 1989.  SPECIAL PEOPLE  Not much is written about the  people in our town who go out  of their way to do things that  make us feel great. Simple,  sweet things.  Like the smile someone gives  that brightens an otherwise  humdrum day. Someone holds  a door open for you. A young  woman lets you go ahead of her  at the check-out.  Or the lady at the bakery goes  to extra trouble to make a cake  just right for a little girl's special  day. Thank you, Sylvia.  Sechelt Seniors  i  Still time for garage sale items  by Larry Grafton  On July. 27 and 28 the  response to our request for  garage sale items was very good.  We were in receipt of such items  as a TV, a microwave oven, a  knitting machine and, of  course, sundry items too  numerous to mention. These  items have now been suitably  priced and will be part of the  sale on August 4 and 5.  There is still plenty of time to  accumulate items for the sale.  Arrangements can be made for  delivery to the hall, or alternately pick-up arrangements may be  made with any one of a number  of our members by phoning  885-7173, 885-9249 or 885-3584.  P.N.E.  It's that time of year again!  For those of our members who  have enjoyed the bus trips to the  P.N.E. in past years, May Widman is in the process of lining  up an outing for August 30.  She has a supply of 'free entry stickers' for seniors who care  to take advantage of the trip.  A Senior's Festival is planned  for two days this year, which  should maximize the enjoyment  of those who normally attend.  If you are a 'fair-goer' you  should contact May Widman at  885-5200 soon to talk about  your bus reservations.  HISTORY  Branch history is something  that can sneak away very quickly and quietly. By the courtesy  of Mrs. Nelson and through  Elizabeth Derby, I am in receipt  of a scrap book with many very  interesting clippings from the  local press of the late '60's with  regard to formation of Branch  69 when the original members  who were O.A.P.O. Branch 69  decided to become Senior  Citizen's of British Columbia.  I am sure that somewhere  here on the Coast, there are  many scrapbooks, which contain gems that should be in  Branch 69 archives files.  Should this be the case, and,  should the owner not want to  part with their treasures, arrangements may be made to  make copies of pertinent clippings or pictures. I would personally welcome a call at  885-7173 if this should be the  situation.  Documents would, of course,  be returned in their original  condition.

"Riding along the highway  with a horse is more dangerous  than with a bike," Dorothy  Christie, a member of the  equestrian club told the parks  committee. She also said many  o\' the trails previously used by  the riders along the Coast had  disappeared due to land becoming privately owned and that the  stretch of the bicycle path in  Roberts Creek was popular with  riders because it got the horses  away from highway traffic and  formed a loop with other trails.  The equestrian club qualifies  for GO BC grants, Christie told  the committee, and suggested  that with these funds and help  and advice from the Horse  Council BC, it could help the  SCRD maintain the path for  dual horse and bicycle use as  well as with the cost of liability  insurance. She also suggested  the club would help with the  paving of the path although  gravel is preferable for horses.  "Pavement isn't ideal,"  Christie said, "but horses can  go on pavement easier than  bikes can go on sand."  The parks committee recommended it try and develop a  multi-use path by widening the  existing path and thus providing  for both horses and bicycles,  but asked for the club's cooperation in not damaging the  path any further. "The path has  to solidify," Parks Superintendent Steve Alexander said,  "before it can be rolled with a  heavier roller. We can't'do that  for another month."  The club will now go ahead  and apply for any funding that  is available to it and has promised to try and keep all members  off the path to prevent further  damage until the riders can be  properly accommodated on the  trail.  by Ruth Forrester 885-2418  All the tables were filled on  the deck of Welcome Beach  Hall last Saturday evening when  over 60 hungry locals sat down  to enjoy a really super hamburger barbecue. Some of the  men slaved over a hot barbecue,  mass producing the delicious  fare, while the ladies, who had  already prepared salads and all  the trimmings as well as a variety of the best home made pies  on the Coast, served the starving mob.  Everyone was well satisfied  and happy; the weather cooperated beautifully and in fact,  the whole event was a really nice  friendly neighbourhood get  together.  Our thanks to all those who  worked so hard to make this  such a successful social event.  BUSY WEEK  Mary Shannon has had a  busy but happy week since the  Maxwell family from Calgary  arrived unexpectedly at her  home on Redrooffs. They are  the granddaughter and three  great grandchildren of the late  Vince Shannon and Mary was  delighted to have them with her.  THOUGHTS  Would like Marg Foster to  know   that   our   hearts   and  thoughts are with her at this sad  time in her life.  NEW BUS SERVICE  Many of our readers will be  glad to know that there is now a  new mini bus in service which  will certainly be an asset to our  area. At present the service for  the Halfmoon Bay area is  limited to two days a week,  Monday and Wednesday, but  trips will be two per day on  those days.  The bus will come in a  clockwise direction from  Highway 101, Redrooffs Road,  Fawn   Road,    Southwood,  Redrooffs Road to Halfmoon  Bay and return to Sechelt via  Highway 101.  Time of departure from Trail  Bay Mall is 8:51 am and then at  3:10 pm, so allow about 10  minutes from departure time  for the bus to reach Southwood  and Redrooffs and another 10  minutes for it to reach Halfmoon Bay and you will soon  have the schedule off pat.  __ SUNSHINE COAST   2Nu ANNUAL CRAFT FAIR  August 5 & 6, 1989  Hackett Park, Sechelt  >��.  ��  ��� BEAUTIFUL HANDCRAFTED ITEMS ���  ��� GREAT ENTERTAINMENT & FOOD BOOTHS *  ��� KID'S KREATIVE KORNER ���  Join the Fun!

Fire fighters and water bomber,  we thank you.  by Myrtle Winchester  After a seven-year haitus the  Pender Harbour and District  Ratepayers' Association  ressurected to address development in Pender Harbour and  focus on Farrington Cove,  Pearson Island, Garden Bay  Lake and Haslam Lake watersheds and By-Law 96.  "The level of Pender Harbour development has suddenly  stepped up," said chairman and  former Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) director Joe Harrison, "and the  ratepayers are a vehicle of the  people to control development."  The meeting was informed  that the Area A By-Law 96 and  zoning was presently under  review to be changed and to  have water zoning added to it, a  point of particular concern to  waterfront property owners.  The ratepayers warn that  serious sewage problems will be  encountered with increased  population density, and that a  sewage system for Pender Harbour would be a costly one  because of the distances and the  rocky terrain involved. Most of  the line would require blasting  for installation.  The threat to community  drinking water by proposed  building around Garden Bay  Lake was discussed, and the  possibility of having both that  watershed and the one at  Haslam Lake protected.  Other concerns about unregulated development include  traffic congestion and hazards  and the ability of the present  water system to supply an increased population.  The group unanimously  agreed to formally oppose the  Farrington Cove rezoning  amendment allowing construction of 100 units, request that  the SCRD withdraw the current  zoning allowing 86 units  because of non-performance  and to petition the SCRD to  hold another public hearing on  the issue.  The group elected as Interim  President, Joe Harrison; Vice-  President, Howard White;  Secretary-Treasurer, Ingrid  Grainge; and Directors Joyce  Fowler, Jerry Krantz and Edith  Daly.  The ratepayers agreed to use  their 1968 Constitution, set up  by Provincial Ratepayers'  Association   President   Harry  Rankin, with an amendment for  a membership fee to increase to  $5.  A letter was received from  Area A Director and BC Liberal  Party Leader Gordon Wilson in  reply to an invitation to the  meeting. Wilson declined  because of a previous commitment but said he would like to  meet with the ratepayers after  directors were installed.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor, in attendance, expressed  her admiration for the group  for "going ahead with the  Ratepayers' Association."  The Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers' Association  plans an annual general  meeting and election of a full  state of officers within the next  two months.

MORE QUESTIONS  Lots of interest lately in what  Pender   Harbour   people   are  ^thinking and doing. Last week  the BC Government asked our  seniors about their drug and  alcohol abuse, and this week the  Sunshine Community Futures  Association had a 'Retirement  ^Questionnaire*.

I have doubts about the value  of our tourism industry here but  it never occurred to me that someone might consider retirement as an industry.  The gentleman told me Community Futures wanted to find  out "what retired people want  to see in their area" and that the  results "would be used by the  Planning commission."  It's a good thing he  straightened me out on the objectives of the survey, or 1  /would have assumed it was to  figureout how one might pro  vide some place for our retired  residents to spend their money.  My assumption would have  been based upon the number of  questions concerning income,  remuneration, employment, occupation and spending. Silly  me.

The  price also includes the return of  the vessel to Horseshoe Bay,  preparation of it for its next  sailing and overtime for the  crew, if the rental falls outside  "regular working hours.  Last month Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper (HSPP) went  exactly that route in order to offer a sailing option time to its  construction workers and to  move most of the semi-trailers  that were bound for Port  Mellon over to the Coast before  the usual morning traffic on the  7:30 ferry out of Horseshoe  Bay.  ���;������ HSPP chartered a ferry from  the BC Ferry-Corporation to  sail for four consecutive Monday mornings at 5 am from  Horseshoe Bay to Langdale  beginning July 10. It was an  agreement between two companies, HSPP President Bill  Hughes told the Coast News so  neither he nor BC Ferries is  divulging the exact cost of the  operation which was on a trial  basis. The figure of $10,000 was  quoted by BC Ferries as the  usual price charged other special  groups who would charter a  ferry such as for movie production work.  "A lot of the construction  workers prefer to spend Sunday  night in Vancouver," Hughes  said. "This ferry was to give  them the chance of travelling on  Monday mornings."  It was also hoped it would  allow many of the truckers time  to take their loads to Port  Mellon early enough to return  to Vancouver by mid-afternoon  j:of the same day.  Hughes said, though, that the  traffic on the chartered ferry  had been "lighter than expected" and he was not certain  whether or not they would continue the practice.  GIBSONS RCMP  Police report the following  incidents on Sea Cavalcade  weekend, Friday to Sunday  afternoon: five 24-hour suspensions; 68 liquor related charges  such as possession and drinking  in public; 83 traffic tickets  issued such as seat belts,  speeding; One wilful damages  charge; two persons taken in  custody on outstanding warrants and there were three instances of breach of probation.  In all 630 vehicles were checked in road blocks.  Last week a break and entry  of a residence on Abbs Road  left the place in shambles. The  incident is still under investigation.  The RCMP sergeant advises  householders to report immediately any persons whom  they do not know who are  trespassing on neighbouring  properties and acting  suspiciously.  And leave your residence  secure. Yours may be the next  target.  July 27 a woman reported the  loss of $300 in or near Hackett  Park.  On the same day a driver of a  motor vehicle was handed a  24-hour suspension.  An insecure load of wood,  bricks and other material on a  truck with no tailgate which was  observed on Highway 101 near  Woodcreek on July 27, brought  a warning from police.  A summer cottage on the  Seawalk below the Gibsons bus  stop was ransacked this past  week.  A bush fire at McNair Creek  adjacent to the highway and  reported at 6:30 am July 22 was  small in size and easily controlled by Canfor personnel.  On July 21, the owner of a  Dodge 4X4 pickup parked near  the old firehall in Lower Gibsons complained of damage to  the vehicle.  Information to RCMP or  886-TIPS.  Tourist Alert is posted almost  weekly in the vestibule of the  RCMP office. For July 22 there  are urgent messages for J.  Mason of Calgary, D. Smith of  Victoria, Pierre Mitron of Ontario and D.

In.  by Peter Trower  Helen is positively skeletal  now; her face haggard; her  once-bright eyes dulled with  profound despair. Herb is  unable to disguise his genuine  alarm at her physical deterioration. "My dear," he gasps,  "what has happened?"  "I'm afraid there's  something I have to tell you,"  says Helen in a hollow voice.  "A couple of weeks ago, I went  for a check-up like you asked  me to. It didn't go well. They  tell me I have...cancer and it's  too far along to operate. Oh  God, honey, it's over...it's all  over! Oh, Herb, I'm so afraid."'  Herb is shaken to the very  roots of his being. He had  known something was wrong  with Helen but hoped it was only the strain of their predicament. Nothing could have  prepared him for this. "How  long?" he manages to ask.  "Only weeks at the most,"  says Helen in a barely audible  voice.  Herb is returned to his cell in  a state of virtual paralysis.  Poor, dear Helen. Surely it  can't be true. The doctors must  have   made   a   mistake.   That  night, for the first time in years,  Herb prays for a miracle. But  none is forthcoming. Only scant  days later, he receives word that  Helen Gillespie has passed away  suddenly. Herb, because of his  escape record, is not even allowed to attend the funeral.  Helen's untimely death accomplishes something that  neither gruelling interrogations  or solitary confinement have  been able to accomplish. Herb  Wilson's iron composure  crumbles at last. He decides to  talk.  "I sat down with the postal  authorities and told them  everything. I was bitter about  the members of my mob. None  of them, with the exception of  Helen, had made any effort to  help me - and I decided to close  the book."  "I agreed to and did travel  around the country for weeks,  chained to FBI men and  escorted by Postal Inspectors,  showing how I had done certain  robberies - acting as key witness  in several prosecutions."  Inevitably, Herb's appeal  against the Cox murder conviction is rejected, despite the fact  that the perjured witness, Horn-  Rhythms  of Life  ���  Be optimistic  bv Penny Fuller  Everyone's heard at least one  story about someone who's  been in the right place at the  right time and been hit by a  lightning bolt of good luck thai  transformed their life into a success story. If you could figure  out a way to package good luck  you'd be a multi-millionaire  within weeks.  Unfortunately, it's not that  simple. But it's not as difficult  as you might think, either.  Good luck has a lot to do with  timing. That's where astrology  becomes a useful tool, as oppos-"!  eel to some nebulous, esoteriey  perspective on life. This is where  you say, "Let's get down to  brass tacks. When do I buy the  lotterv ticket and what numbers  do I pick?"  Slow down and read on,  Predicitive astrology is like a  weather report, it can tell you  when to carry your emotional,  storm gear and when to plan a  picnic. The position of the hon  vivant of the cosmos, Jupiter,  has a lot to do with which area  of your life will be the luckiest  for you at any given lime.  The most positive time,  where anything and everything  is possible, is when Jupiter  passes by the place it was hanging out when you were born.  This is called your 'Jupiter  Return' and happens once every  12 years.  On July 30, Jupiter rolled into the sign of Cancer and it will  inch its way through the 30  degrees of that sign until August  18, 1990. Anyone born when  Jupiter was there before will  have at least a couple of weeks  during this next year, when op-  portunites will drop into their  laps. This includes anyone  born: June 27, 1930 - July 17,  1931; June 11, 1942 - June 30,  1943; May 25, 1954 - June 13,  1955; May 6, 1966 - May 23,  1967, and April 13, 1978  -September 5, 1978.  There's a trick to using this  time to its best advantage. You  have to be open and willing to  pursue opportunities that you  might otherwise ignore. From  our own petty perspectives, it's  impossible to see where things  will lead us. Therefore, during  this time it's important that you  don't assume you know the outcome of the given situation, and  on that basis walk away from  an opportunity.  Trust that the simplest things  may lead to you to your 'golden  opportunity; for personal fulfillment. Yes, you can eo ahead /  and buy the lottery tickets. You  might even win at this time. But  more important are the other  things that will happen in your  life, so don't be narrow minded.  A Jupiter Return can provide  the opportunity to be fulfilled.  That does not necessarily mean  rich in money, although that  might be hard for you to believe  right now.  The actual period of time that  your own personal Jupiter  Return is in effect is about two  or three weeks. If you were born  during the periods mentioned, it  might be a good time to get a  full astrology reading done to  pinpoint that time.  At any rate, keep your rose-  coloured glasses handy. This is  a year when it's sensible to be  naively optimistic. There's a  good luck lightning bolt just  waiting out there with your  name on it, so be ready.  Emergency exercise  in Gibsons  Gibsons Council and  municipal employees will participate in an emergency exercise  which simulates a situation  where major fires and earth  tremors occur. The specific type  of exercise was recommended  by Public Works Superintendent Skip Reeves, after council  had indicated its desire to look  at its role and responsibilites in  case of a disaster.  Reeves recommended the earthquake/fire scenario as one  most likely to give council  members, emergency personnel  and agencies a clear idea of the  possible  problems  that  could  arise.  Alderman Ken Collins asked  thai council meet with Emergency Program Co-ordinator  Art MacPhee for a briefing  before attempting the exercise.  Reeves explained he will be  meeting with emergency person?  nel from Search and Rescue, the  RCMP, the fire department and  hospital to design an exercise on  paper. Once the involved agencies have gone through the  paper exercise, a new version  will be designed which will  simulate an actual disaster.  Park gone  A discussion at the June 25 Area D Advisory Planning  Commission meeting revolved around the controversial lot at  the mouth of Roberts Creek which all concerned parties feel  should be part of the park but on which a house is now being  built.  Apparently the asking price for the piece of property is  $100,000 which the Sunshine Coast Regional District feels is  too much.

The sentence however, is reduced to life imprisonment, partially due to Herb's belated cooperation with the authorities  and also to a $50,000 bribe paid  to District Attorney Asa Keys;  Under heavy guard, he is sent  north to San Quentin Prison to  begin serving his term.

Lovers of Latin music won't  be disappointed with the final  concert of the Celebration 10  festivities. In a 'Musical Picnic  in the Park', two acts from  Central America will have the  audience on its feet.  Luis Galich is a solo performer originally from  Guatemala. He does his own  compositions, singing and accompanying himself on both  piano and guitar. This music  ranges from songs that speak of  love of his homeland to a jungle  piece that recreates the sounds  of the steamy rainforests of  Central America.  Following Galich on the bill is  B Cuadro, a band based in  Managua, Nicaragua and consisting of both Nicaraguans and  Guatemalans playing guitar,  bass, keyboard, drums and  Latin percussion. Their music is  known as 'nuevo cancion' or  new sound, a form peculiar to  Latin Ameriqa, the contemporary music of the region. Intense in the control of the lyrics  and vibrant with its Latin  rhythms.  This event is one for the  whole family to enjoy at 6 to 9  in Hackett Park, Sechelt  (Roberts Creek Hall if it rains).

CENTRE COOKBOOK  Since its grand opening on  August 3, 1979, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre has built a  reputation for good food. Most  events have had delicious treats  to add to the ambiance and  some, such as the Musical High  Tea held this past weekend,  have had food as a primary  focus.  Most of the dishes are the  personal creations or adaptations of some extremely talented  cooks. The book can be purchased for $2 at the Arts Centre  and at the Craft Fair to be held  at Hackett Park this weekend.

F  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  In the 180O's Irvine's Landing was the centre of the community of Pender Harbour but over the years the population  grew, a highway went in, and the centre of activity shifted to  Madeira Park.  Going to Irvine's Landing in 1989 is a drive in the country,  past farms and lakes and summer homes, to the end of the  road, to salt water, to a comfortable refuge in the midst of  raw coastline and thick history: Irvine's Landing Marine  Pub.  We felt it was the ideal spot for a mid-week dinner with an  ocean view, with its modern but mellow surroundings,  reminiscent of the Irvine's Landing of old with lots of warm  dark wood contrasting cool greens and nautical brass fixtures.  It's not a place where you want to gobble down a quick  snack and rush off, so we started with a Mexicanish appetizer, nachos, and real strawberry Margueritas. The nachos  prompted my companion to say, "Yuppie food was the best  thing that came out of the 80's," and they were indeed worthy of such praise, prepared with liberal amounts of  guacamole, cheese, sour cream and black olives.  Because I'd had the biggest share of the nachos, I ordered a  steak sandwich. The generous portion of Alberta Grade A  beef served on thick slices of golden garlic toast wasdelicious,  presented exactly as I'd requested (medium-rare) and accompanied by a fresh salad that had a tangy, tasty dressing.  My companion, who felt he had been allowed less than his  share of our nachos, ordered the special of the day - the prime  rib dinner. He was very impressed with not only the tender  slices of roast but with the breathtaking horseradish, which is  perhaps the real deciding factor of quality in any prime rib  dinner.  All in all, our meals were perfect, and now, with our appetites well-sated but still reluctant to leave our pleasant surroundings, we ordered dessert coffees, which were listed on  the menu under the playful heading of 'Storm Warnings'.  My companion, having a penchant for licorice, had a  'Bill's Ark', a cream-topped concoction including anisette,  and I, being more of a traditionalist, had a'Flying High'. In  keeping with the historical flavour of the location, Storm  Warnings are all named after boats well-known in the area.  Average meal prices do not include liquor  Andy's Restaurant Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night. Don't miss  Andy's Luncheon Buffet, 11-2, Tuesday  thru' Friday.

Players, during the course  of a game should be arranged  along the sides of the sheet so  no one except the playing parties and their sweepers should  be upon the centre of the rink.  2. No other party other than  the skip acting for the time being should stand behind the circle while play is proceeding.  3. Each player should be  ready to play when his/her turn  comes and should hot take  more than a reasonable time to  play. ..';. ,  4. Leads   should   not  soft  rocks so they are ready to play y  their first rock.  5. The skip should get ready  to start the new end as soon as  possible.  6. Thirds are responsible for  measuring close rocks; other  players should stay out of the  house until this is done and  should not disturb the house until the thirds have indicated the  need to do so.  7. Thirds should mark up the���!  score promptly after the finish  of each end.  8.

One of our members was said  to have hit his second shot into  the pond on the 7th hole. In a  rage he tossed his bag and clubs  in after the ball, and threatened  to jump in and drown himself.  But he was convinced by his  team-mates that he was wasting  his time; they were certain he  would not be able to hold his  head down long enough to  drown.

On Saturday RC Legion faced McKillican Hardwood and  won both games by scores of  7-1 and 8-2. Great pitching  from Alex Skytte and Weepee  Peers and several outstanding  defensive plays shut down the  McKillican nine.  Freeman Reynolds with a  homcrun and Geoff Butcher led  Legion hitters.  On Sunday RC Legion faced  the North Delta Pirates and  beat the spirited visitors both  games, the scores being 3-1 and  10-0. Rich Waugh pitched an  excellent game constantly baffling Pirate batters with his famed pus ball curves and struck  out 10 batters.  Dave Lamb was the leader on  offence going 2-3 with a double.  In the second game, Weepee  pitched his second shutout of  the season and mowed down 11  Pirate batters on strike outs and  gave up just three hits. Geoff  Butcher with his third homer of  the season led the Legion batters.  Legion closed out the season  with a 20-4 record and second  place, a verv sucessful season all  I old.  Legion would like to thank  our many umps that gave up  their time to help us out all  season and also the many fans  win) came out to cheer us on.  Also a big thank you to our  sponsor, Roberts Creek Legion.  Thanks!

Sechelt    885-4604  Here's something for your  head and your heart,  Kcligion 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'u'llah, 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'llah brought for uniting mankind, and in doing so we're  finding that true religion is an affair of both mind and heart.

Editor:  It is with great interest that I  read letters to the paper recently, referring to the atrocious  driving on the Sunshine Coast.  Many of us in Sechelt have also  noticed the many dangerous  drivers in the last year; and have  discussed the near accidents.  It seems that since the new  traffic lights have been installed,  this has become a playground  for those late evening lunatics,  ,to do their doughnuts and that  -Wharf Road and Cowrie Street  \have become racing strips every  fjiight of the week until well past  ^midnight.  The parking lot at a local accountant's is yet another  favourite spot for doughnuts  causing  clouds  of dust.  The  evidence of tire marks is yet visi-  , ble in the gravel.  Many stop signs are completely ignored especially the  ones near the cenotaph.  Teredo   Street  has   become  another strip for those that feel  the need to put their foot flat to  the board during the day and  , night.  Some of these offenders drive  without lights at night to avoid  having their license numbers  noted.  It is even idiotic to think one  is safe in pedestrian crossings.  One favourite trick is to ap-;  proach the crossing fast and  stop ��� within inches of  pedestrians crossing.  The noise level of squealing  tires at night, racing engines and  radios going full blast is surely  in itself a disturbance of the  peace.  Why are deaf ears turned to  all this?  Why are all these driving infractions ignored?  What are we waiting for?  STOP - does that mean: skid  tires on pavement.  Ethel Collins  A word of thanks  Editor:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who  worked to make this year's Sea  Cavalcade such a success.

My personal thanks to the  Coast News for their sponsorship of the Gibsons Golden Girl  Award which I was privileged to  be the recipient of, and for the  lovely bouquet of flowers and  gift which were presented to me.  A community working together is a strong community.  May this spirit of dedication  and co-operation continue to be  evident for next year's celebrations.  Agnes Labonte  Parade  judging  Editor:  Re: Sea Cavalcade Parade  Judging.  What are the rules regarding  judging for parade entries? This  year it was supposed to be  originality and the theme was  Gibsons by the Sea.  With al! due respect to the  First Prize winner in Commercial Floats, (it was unique!), it  did not comply with the rules.  A commercial float should  depict the business it is advertising. What does a huge logging  machine depict of Gramma's  Pub? If it had been entered by a  logging company it would have  been great.  If a float does not depict the  business it shows, it should not  be under commercial but under  / comedy or overall or whatever.  The float had no hint of the  i theme of- Gibsons by the Sea.  i    Byv the way, -we sure got our  advertising in judging by the  i huge response of~the"������public*1A\'-''  v along the parade route.  Thank you Gibsons.  Frank Roosen  No  politics  Editor:  The Sea Cavalcade Parade is  not the place for a political  ; forum. I agree with the environmentalists, but not when  they proseltyze the community  with death warnings.  This brings me to the anti-  abortionists. Abortion is hardly  a subject for young children,  and introducing the subject at  an event, such as our annual  parade, is tasteless.  I hope the parade organizers  consider this 'social faux pas'  before next year's Sea  Cavalcade.  C. McEwan  R. Griston  Damage  charged  Editor:  What is the point in parents  working so hard to create a dry  grad only to have a wet Sea  Cavalcade?  At approximately 11 pm on  Friday, Lower Gibsons resembled   an   animal   farm   with  young,   inebriated   people  .fighting   and   mobbing   ever-  where.  Is this considered the  'new way to have fun, to the  'detriment of those wishing to  just   enjoy   the   festive   atmosphere.  The damage to merchant property was considerable. Is  apathy going to maintain its  usual stance until Sea Cavalcade  is avoided by all those except  the troublesome element?  Bill Walkey  Gibsons  benefit  Editor:  For the sake of everyone concerned and regardless of the  outcome, a healthy situation is  happening with the Gibsons  Council.  It can only benefit the Gibsons residents and for now clear  the air.  Thank you Lilian and Ken.

Women's Hall  Heritage site  by Gwen Robertson  The Town of Gibsons has  agreed to designate the former  Womens Institute Hall as a  heritage building.  This building, known as  School Board #46 Maintenance  Building at the junction of  North Road, School Road and  Highway 101 had been sold  around 1950 by the Women's  Institute to the School Board  for the sum of $1 'for community use'.  Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society can apply for funding to  restore the facade to its original  design. In order to do so the;  society needs a picture of the  building as it stood prior to the  alterations made by the School  Board.  This photo must be included  with the application to Heritage  Trust for funding.  Please contact Gwen Robertson at 886-3780 or Fred Inglis at  886-3890 with any information.

Coast News, July 31,1989  by Ellen Frith  Bill 19, introduced for first  reading in the provincial  legislature May 8 and which is  intended to provide regional  districts with many of the same  service powers as municipalities  and with a corresponding level  of autonomy, comes into effect  today at 12 noon.  Trie Bill contains a comprehensive revision of Part 24  of the Municipal Act concerning regional districts, and once  adopted will, for the first time,  give these governments a clear  and complete code of operation, almost completely self-  contained in one part of the  Act.    .  In a verbal report at the Sunshine Coast Regional District's  (SCRD) regular board meeting  July 27, Area E Director Jim  Gurney outlined a number of  the provisions giving regional  districts the "same rules as  municipalities".  Gurney, along with SCRD  Chairman Peggy Conner, Ad  ministrator Larry Jardine and  Treasurer Mike Phelan, has  recently returned from a two-  day workshop in Vancouver to  study Bill 19. The workshop  was co-sponsored by the British;  Columbia Union of  Municipalities and the Ministry  of Municipal Affairs.  Gurney called Bill 19's  changes to a regional district's  powers, "bewildering, different, exciting". They gave  regional districts, he said, "a lot  more  tools".  Some of these changes (and  here Gurney stressed these were  only in point form from the  notes he had taken at the  workshop) concern: the leasing  and sale of property-expropriation of property; civic properties commission; recreation  commissions; fire protection  regulations; mutual aid  agreements; nuisance protection; regulation of inflammable  and dangerous materials and  permissive tax exemption.  Bill 19 would also provide  tor, or affect: the undertaking  of telephone polls; short term  borrowing; the ability to carry  forward budget surpluses;  boundary extension consultation; local community creation  (a government, Gurney said,  which is halfway between a  regional district and a  municipality); improvement  districts; ministerial orders;  ability to tax on improvements  only (this, he said, might affect  fish farming); greater local control (no taxing powers but more  input); emergency provisions  and other incidental powers.  There are "rough edges" in  the Bill, Gurney said, "but we'll  have them worked out."  It is expected that the process  of adopting the new provisions  could take as long as five years  and all regional districts should  plan on carrying out the transition process systematically over  that period.  The changes created by Bill  19 which the regional district  will have to be careful of,]  Gurney said, were those which  affected the use of the weighted  vote, renumeration and expenses and grants in aid.

The Ministry of Forests and  Lands, in a letter dated July 11,  advised the SCRD it had received an application for the Lake  Salvage Licence to Cut covering  Sakinaw Lake and asked if the  board had any specific comments to make on this proposal.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson said he had "very grave  concerns" regarding logging in  the Sakinaw Lake area as well  as around Ruby Lake. "We  have to indicate now," he said,  "that logging is an unacceptable  land use for that area (Sakinaw  Lake)."  The board voted to write to  the ministry with very serious  objections to the licence application and stated that such a  licence would set a precedent  leading to other logging activity  in the area.  The same held true for the  Ruby Lake situation, Wilson  said. "We have to protect the  local ecosystem."  The board was responding to  a letter from the Ruby Lake  Landholders' Association  stating its concerns regarding  water licences on the lake.  �� The board also voted to res-  Spond to a letter from the  Minister of Environment who  will  be attending the annual  Health  Clinics  j Child Health Clinics will be  held in Gibsons at 494 S.

The letter asks that any matter  of concern or interest relating to  the Ministry of Environment be  forwarded to the office prior to  the convention.  The message has to be  brought home, the board felt,  about how serious people really  are regarding the environment.  A letter to the SCRD from  the Town of Ladysmith seeking  support at the UBCM convention in its concerns regarding  logging in its watershed. "We  should offer our support to the  Town of Ladysmith," Area E  Director Jim Gurney said, "and  we should investigate the whole  question of water and watersheds."  The board also voted to send  a strongly worded letter to the  Ministry of Forests asking why  it reversed its position on the  burning permits for Terminal  Forest Products' Twin Creeks  site. He had understood,  Gurney said, no extension of  Terminal's burn permit would  be forthcoming and yet that is  what has apparently happened.  The SCRD also received a letter from Iris Griffith asking that  a board representative attend  the August 19 National conference sponsored by the  University of British Columbia  I aw School which will concern  itself with, "how lawyers can  better serve the environment  and anti-nuclear movements."

Coast News, July 31,1989  by Ellen Frith  At the Restructuring Advisory Committee meeting, July  29, Gibsons Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard was able  to provide the committee with  figures of the monies that would  be available from Victoria to  the new municipality of Gibsons  should a restructuring of the  town with Areas E and F take  place.  Transitional assistance from  the province after restructuring  could include assistance  payments for the municipality  in general of $75 per capita in  ���the first year, $50 per capita in  the second year and $25 per  capita in the third. The approximated combined population of  the Town of Gibsons and of  Area E and F is between five  and 6000.  Since the population of the  proposed restructured area is  greater than 5000, the new  municipality of Gibsons would  have to assume the full cost of  police enforcement but not until  the fourth year after restructuring. During the first year, a provincial grant covering 100 per  cent of police costs is available;  two thirds in the second year is  paid by Victoria and one third  in the third year.  Inquiries by the Restructuring  Advisory Committee regarding  what the exact highway capital  and maintenance costs would be  after restructuring has not yet  been received.  "The policy is still under consideration," Goddard said, but  it was felt provincial highway  grants   were   becoming   more  ' generous.  There was also some question  as to the status of Highway 101  should the new by-pass be constructed and whether, if the  highway is designated as a  secondary road, the cost of  maintaining it would then fall to  the new municipality. Because  of the question of the by-pass,  the committee admitted, exact  figures for the cost of highways  to a new municipality on the  Coast are difficult to assess.  There was also considerable  discussion at Saturday's  meeting regarding the recently  printed question and answer  brochure to be distributed this  week by the committee prior to  the public hearing on restructuring scheduled for August 5. The  samples of the brochure handed  around to committee members  at the meeting proved unaccep  table because of printing errors  and other mistakes. These were  corrected and a reprint called  for.  Restructuring Advisory Committee Chairman Malcolm  Fraser felt it imparative the  committee try its level best to  contact as many of the residents  of the affected areas not living  full time on the Coast but nevertheless entitled to a vote in the  referendum, as possible.  "I think we have an-obligation as an advisory commission  to get the information out to as  many potential voters as possible," he said.  Because the restructuring  vote needs only a 50 per cent  plus one majority in Areas E  and F and, separately, in Gibsons, it was pointed out that  considering the average voter  turn out, 400 residents of the affected areas could end up deciding the issue either way.  The committee discussed the  possibility of bringing in an outside tax expert to help explain  the extremely complex issue of  taxation before and after  restructuring. D'Arcy Burk explained that a comparison of  the proposed restructuring of  the Town of Gibsons with the  restructuring of the District of  Sechelt is impossible. The recent  tax increases in Sechelt, he said,  were due to its lack of an industrial tax base and that situation wouldn't be a problem in  Gibsons.  Commitee member Mike  Poppel said there were three  main issues the people in the affected areas were concerned  with: lifestyle, taxes and local  control. Local control controls  lifestyle, he said, "and if you  have revenue generating  capabilities, you can control  taxes."  The committee also agreed to  investigate the administration  costs of a new municipality.  In response to questions  regarding the recently adopted  Bill 19, the committee did not  feel the bill did, in fact, give  regional districts the powers of a  municipality.  "It's a housecleaning bill,"  Fraser said, quoting Gary  Paget, director of organizational policy in the ministry of  municipal affairs.  "Municipalities have far  greater money-raising  capabilities than regional  districts and Bill 19 hasn't  changed that."  Sewer bluff charge  set for twenty years  Residents on Georgia bluff in  Gibsons will be paying $584.91  in taxes for 20 years to cover the  cost of the sewer extension to  their properties but as a bonus,  the town will pick up over half  the cost of fixing the road in  front of the properties.  Under By-Law 602, residents  were expected to pick up 100 per  cent of all costs relating to the  sewer extension, including the  repairs necessary to any road  torn up in the process.  However, Skyline Drive was  in such bad shape that Gibsons  Council voted last week to contribute approximately $6450 to  the resurfacing of the road.  Mayor Strom suggested that  charging the home owners for  the entire job, "...would be unfair considering the condition of  the road before the sewer went  in."  Brightly coloured balloons and colourful clowns are a feature of  many the celebrations all over the Sunshine Coast to be enjoyed at  this time of year. ���Vem Elliott photo  RAC gets facts  and figures  by Myrtle Winchester  Vandals identified as Sunshine Coast residents caused  over $2000 damage to Dan  Bosch Park and beach area off  Highway 101 north of Pender  Harbour last weekend,  devastating a project that had  been completed by the Parks  Department only two days  before.  "I worked hard on that (the  project)," said Sunshine Coast  ���Regional District Parks  Superintendent Steve Alexander, "and its come back and  slapped me in the face. We just,  finished the work on Thursday,  and in one weekend it's been  destroyed."  By breaking or burning, the  vandals destroyed a solid-  concrete picnic table, four large  signs and posts, chain and a garbage can. The only part of the  area left untouched was the  plastic floats in the water, and  garbage was strewn throughout  the area.  "It hurts," continued Alexander, "because that was the  fruits of our labour. Ray  Hansen did a first-class job of  the beach development, so it  had lots of sand and was safe  for kids to go wading in. The  whole park was a good area for  families."  This incident is the most recent in a series of vandal attacks  on public parks and recreational  areas in the Pender Harbour  area over the summer and Alexander explained that money used to clean up after vandals  must be taken from a budget  allocated for further park improvement projects in the area.  In attempt to prevent further  destruction, the park will be  fenced, a locked gate will be installed at the entrance, and the  RCMP will patrol the area more  regularly.  The Egmont Lions Club offered to assist the parks department   in   ensuring   that   Dan  Police news1  On July 27, a Madeira Park  resident   complained   that   a  floating wharf was stolen com-r  plete with cables and tires.       ;  On July 26, damage was;  reported to the signs at Dan  Bosch Park on Ruby Lake.  On July 24, Department of  Highways reported that eight  highway signs in the Madeira  Park area were knocked over.  Anyone having information  concerning the above should  call   Crimestoppers.  On July 25 at approximately  7:40 pm, a three vehicle motor  vehicle accident occurred at the  intersection of Wharf Avenue  and East Porpoise Bay Road,  resulting in one male subject being taken to the hospital with  head injuries.  Bosch Park is not the target of  further vandalism, and they are  currently negotiating the  feasibility of promoting and  developing the park "for more  practical uses," possibly a camping area that operates on an  advance reservation system.  A management arrangement  between the SCRD and the Egmont Lions is expected to be in  place by next spring but in the  meantime, Alexander and area  residents, including the Ruby  Lake Landholders Association,  urge the public to help prevent  further incidents at the popular  'party' spot,    f  "All people have to do," said  Alexander, "is take licence  numbers and maybe a make  and colour of any (suspicious  vehicles) to report to the Sechelt  RCMP. We need a little more  public participation in policing,  in other words, a -neighbourhood watch."
