Array I*] ������  Bit ���';  Mi  hi  jil  I  a  I  i  i  I  *,���  ft  ?:  I  by Dave Fraser  : A proposed lawn bowling  facility at Hackett Park in  Sechelt has raised a storm of  protest among young and old  alike.  It was standing room only at  Sechelt council chambers  Wednesday as a delegation of  30 or more showed up to show  its opposition to the plan.  Sechelt Mayor Tom Meredith  told the crown council was  prepared to hear the delegation  but not comment on the proposal. A decision will'be' made  at the November 1 council  meeting in order that all seven  council members would have a  chance to vote on the motion to  give approval.  Nancy. McLarty read a prepared statement on behalf of  Georgina Sager and Grace  Hopkins, organizers of the petition campaign that swept  through the District of Sechelt  last week.  McLarty told the Coast News  259 elementary and high school  students, 91 Sechelt Indian  Band members and 933 adults  signed the petition over a five-  day period.  But   Sechelt   Administrator  Malcolm Shanks told the Coast'  News there are no plans for the  lawn bowling green yet. "It's  still in the proposal stage."  He said council learned there  was interest in such a facility  after receiving a petition with  300 to 400 names two months  ago.  Shanks said 50 to 60 people  attended a September 13; public  meeting on the proposal. All of  the 50 to 60 people in attendanceJaypuredyaJa%n bowling ,  facility, Shanks said, with a  slight majority - about 30  -favouring the Hackett Park  site.  Meredith raised a few hackles  among the anti-lawn bowling  delegation by calling its list of  1120 names of people opposing  the facility an "expression of  public interest" rather than a  petition. He said a legal petition .  requires a full, legal description  of the persons signing it and  their addresses. Shanks admitted the petition received from  the lawn bowling proponents  was not a legal one.  "It's not fair," Christine  Toynbee told the Coast News  earlier that day during a student  petition Ydrivei by Chatelech  students, organized by Toynbee  and fellow student Nicole  Parandon. j  "They just fixed (the park and  " they want to wreck it again,"  Toynbeei said, who as a child,  used to play in the park with her  younger sister Leslie.  McLarty, a $echelt alderman  from 1987 to 1989 before  resigning due tO| ill health,  outlined i the park's history at .  last Wednesday's imeeting. In  1957 the Union Steamship  Company gave the land to the  Village of Sechelt for the sum of  $49.05 with the understanding it  would become a park.  Since its dedication, Sechelt  has cleared and seeded the land  and installed bleachers and  playground equipment. McLarty noted that Hackett Park was,  up until the late 70's, the single  largest project undertaken by  the local Lions Club and was  home to Timber Days from  1972.  The park is used for baseball,  football, soccer, tennis, as a  children's playground and green  area for strolling or sitting at  park benches, as well as being  the site of craft fairs, Celebration Days and other community  gatherings.  McLarty pointed out the park  is open to the public free of  charge and the gates are not  locked, as would be the case  with a lawn bowling facility.  She says all the activities to  date at Hackett Park are in  keeping with the Sechelt Park  Acquisition By-Law, No. 28,  which dedicated the site as a  public municipal park and has  never r^rkreK^ded, J&SdEtt&a  said." ���'";';';.   Y:  McLarty says with the  building of a lawn bowling  green the park would cease to be  public. "By its very nature the  lawn bowling green would have  to be fenced and locked when  not in use to protect it from the  public walking on it and marring its surface.  "It is also my understanding,  after speaking to members of  other bowling clubs, that green  fees do not take care of upkeep  which, in most cases, are met by  the sale of alcoholic beverages  in the clubhouse after members  have finished their games." She  said this would also contravene  the by-law.  The latest proposal is not the  first attempt to move something  onto the | park site. In 1978 the  Sechelt Village council con-;  sidered a request to move the  1907 Whitaker House into the  park but the proposal failed.  after a close vote,    i  McLarty said the people sign-  , ing the petition are not against  J lawn bowling but against "hav-  j ing public park space! given over  | to it, especially space in Hackett  JjPark   where   so   many   trees  would have to be destroyed to  facilitate the greens."  She suggested another piece  of land be found to build the  facility which the district could  lease to a lawn bowling association which "could raise funds  through grants and donations to  establish their own operation.  "This would free the already  beleaguered Sechelt taxpayer  from any costs that would be incurred by the district."  Chatelech Secondary School students rallied to save their space  last Wednesday after hearing that a lawn bowling green could be  built in their Sechelt park. (See story.)  -Dave Fraser photo  ./m  m  I  strongly contested  by Ellen Frith  , The second and third  readings for Zoning Amendment By-Law No. 555-24 and  Official Community Plan  Amendment By-Law No. 600-1  were tabled at last Tuesday's  Gibsons Council meeting in  order to allow Aldermen John  Reynolds and Gerry Dixon time  to review the minutes of the  previous night's public hearing  on the issue which the aldermen  had been unable to attend.  The by-law amendments are  concerned with a 75-unit mobile  home park proposed for a 12.2  acre parcel of land located just  south of North Road near Reed  Road in Gibsons.  The proposed park is described by Jon McRae, agent for the  property owners, as a strata-  titled development with a  minimum lot size of 3500 square  feet, allowing each mobile home  owner to own his site rather  than rent it. The development is  intended as retirement housing  and will fill a "gap", McRae  says, in the present real estate  market in Gibsons.  Although the development,  when first brought before council in May 1989, was slated as a  first-time home opportunity for  young families, McRae told the  Coast News the proposal has  changed because, "We learned  a lot about it once we got into  it," he said.  According to McRae,  "there's a whole gap missing in  the market.  "The bottom price for a  single family house in Gibsons  is $77,900," he said. "We have  to provide something else or  Gibsons hasn't done its bit."  The concerns, however, of  residents in the vicinity of the  proposed development are  many. A petition signed by 29  of those opposed to the mobile  home park was received at  Monday night's public hearing.  The objections to,the development range from its proposed  density, its location, the potential for creating traffic problems  on North Road, the inevitable  destruction of the trees on that  parcel of land which contribute  to the privacy of houses already  established along Reed Road  and whose removal may cause  flooding, the apparent lack of  control over the potential  ownership of the strata-titled  lots, to the development's  deviation from the Official  Community Plan.  "The community plan came  out in December 1988," said  Hans Ounpuu whose Twin  Oaks development presently  under construction is directly  opposite the North Road access  of the proposed mobile home  park. "It's hot off the press.  There's no reason to change it."  He stated at the public hearing that as a developer, he is not  anti-development but he said he  feels the density of the proposed  park is too high, will create too  much traffic and will devalue  other properties adjacent to it.  The issue of a mobile home  park with 75 units having only,  one access road was also an obvious concern with several of  those in opposition.  In fact, the Municipal Act  states: 'A second access from a  public highway separated by at  least 200 feet from the first access shall be provided to > each  mobile home park containing 75  or more mobile home spaces.'  "Well, then there will only be  74 in the development," McRae  told the Coast News, "The  manager's unit will front on  North Road."  In answer to the necessity to  change the zoning by-law to accommodate the development,  McRae pointed out at the public  hearing that a high proportion  of the town is currently zoned  R3 which allows for mobile  homes. As a developer, he said,  he would prefer to have mobile  homes grouped in a well developed park than to "have them  spread all over the town."  Dioxin readings  seen 'encouraging'  by Ellen Frith  Roberts Creek Elementary students held a run last Friday appropriately named the "Turkey Trot" in honour of these homely  members of the feathered tribes. ��� Vera Elliott photo  The latest results from the  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  mill's dioxin testing since it  began 50 per cent chlorine dioxide substitution in the first  bleaching stage last month, are  "very encouraging", an October 4 information bulletin  states.  The ppq (parts per quadrillion) of dioxins in the mill's  effluent dropped from 400 in  February to zero in September  and, in the pulp, from 14 ppt  (parts per trillion) to zero during  the same time frame.  The traces of furans in the effluent dropped from 9400 ppq  in February to 88 in September  and in the pulp from 315 ppt to  7.2.  According to the bulletin, the  September samples were taken  over a two hour period by an independent consultant, BC  Research, and tested by Seakem  Analytical Services.  "The presence of furans,  although low, is still a concern  to us," the bulletin says. "The  samples were taken at a time  when our brownstock washing  was not as good as it can be  which results in higher chlorine  use.  "If it doesn't eliminate the  furans, we will boost the  chlorine dioxide substitution,  researchers believe that 70 per  cent substitution will eliminate  the furans."

It will take great courage from those of us already  here in the bountiful West to admit, especially to the  newcomers, that perhaps the consumer's glee felt at the  site of a shiny new mall, has a very high price tag on it,-  that of the virtual destruction of the planet.  The truth is, our prosperity is based as much on cheap  energy as on the free market and the payment for it all is  perhaps past due.  Encouraging the East Germans, the one billion  Chinese or the rest of the third world to join us in our  indulgence will only hasten the process of smothering  this planet in even more pollution.  Communism is, of course, no solution to the problem  but a lower standard of living is.  Perhaps thoughts for this Thanksgiving period should  then turn to the appreciation of the fact we might not  have found out the errors of our ways too late. Perhaps  we should then meet those eager to emulate us halfway.  Perhaps the answer is to circulate our wealth instead  of attempting to generate more in uneven piles from the  i poor, depleted body of the earth.  Resilience  Premier Vander Zalm has apparently risen from the  ashes of the Socred defeat in the Cariboo and his resilience  is to be admired.  Whether it was the man's intrinsic leadership qualities  that bailed him out or the failure of a divided party to  agree on even an interim successor, only time will tell.  5 YEARS AGO  The annual general meeting of St. Mary's Hospital  Society recorded another highly successful year of  operation for the facility, but the financial picture for  the future indicates difficulties lied ahead.  UBC Old Boys were five men short of a full 15-man  squad causing a rather embarrassing 53-3 loss to an  awesome Gibsons side in rugby action last weekend.  New staff and innovative programs are revitalizing  the Sunshine Coast Transition House - a safe house for  battered women, operated by Sunshine Coast Community Services Society since 1981.  10 YEARS AGO  Coast News carries a front-page picture of the  tugboat Squamish Chief beached at Davis Bay. The  next tide refloated the tug.  Opposition transportation critic, Don Lockstead,  asks for ferry inquiry into the safety and efficiency of  the BC Ferry Corporation because of government  stonewalling.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $_0; Foreign; 1 year $40  An outdated premise  on managing trees?  Last week's Forestry Advisory Committee (FAC) meeting, minus our elected officials  who all had prior commitments  elsewhere, and with the exception of one or two, smacked of  an old boy's club - a group of  men comfortable in its  camaraderie and converging  points of view.  So comfortable were they, in  fact, they seemed unaware of  how inappropriate their  remarks would seem to some  one not working on the same  premise they were. The premise  being, of course, that the wealth  and high standard of living  generated by the BC Forest Industry must not change no matter what.  The idle chit-chat before the  meeting was called to order was  as telling as anything. The halt  on logging in the last remaining  old growth forests in Washington State was exposed as a good  example of the 'loss of jobs'  brought about by environmental enthusiasts and all because  of one type of small owl. The  size of the owl is apparently  relevant and therefore the saving of its habitat is deemed even  less important. "Save a logger,  eat an owl," brought forth  knowing guffaws.  In my jaunts around the  world, I've been lucky enough  to stand in the seemingly endless  jungles of West Africa, the  teak forests of Southeast Asia  and among the grey-green gum  trees of Australia. Actually  'lucky' doesn't even begin to  describe the opportunity as now  the number of trees in those  places has been so greatly reduced.  In Asia the forests are a mere  percentage point of what they  once were. And so, in spite of  assurances to the contrary from  the knowledgeable gentlemen  on the FAC, I foresee a day in  the not-too-distant future when  this province's woods are greatly decimated as well if the present trends continue.  The suggestion that sizeable  areas of this province's remaining virgin timber be simply left  alone brought cries of: "But it  would be worthless." Mother  Nature is apparently incapable  of regenerating her woods as efficiently or as fast as man who  is, after all, skilled in 'forest  management'.  It was acknowledged that  although we certainly cannot  replace those old 300-year-old  trees, we can, in 60 years have a  forest once again where a clear  cut noWcSjands. Of course, there  are plans for re-harvesting those  trees in 60 years but���.  Is it too optimistic or naive to  believe there might be one spot  on this planet left completely  untouched for its own value.  One spot with no hiking trails,  no logging scars, no man-made  garbage at all. No one even need  go there, but we would know it  existed. One spot where we,  Western Man, the world's most  voracious creature, had not  touched, or managed, or confined.  Saving little patches of old  growth trees such as MacMillan  Bloedel has done in Cathederal  Grove on Vancouver Island  does not even approach retribution for the murder of the  woods around Ucluelet to name  only one incident of rampant  clear cutting. In spite of the  beliefs of the FAC members attending last week's meeting, it is  not enough to save only the  forests presently ia parks.  If we are not allowed to log  the Carmanah Valley, one FAC  member told me, we would  have to take a real drop in our  standard of living. "What do  you want us to do," he said  echoing IWA leader Jack  Munro. "Sell popcorn and  peanuts to American tourists?"  Alas, yes. If that's what it  comes to, loggers catering to the  tourist trade is preferable to  destroying the remaining forests  unique to this planet. Those  forests do not belong 'to us';  'us' being those fortunate  enough to live in BC. They  belong to the intricate and  delicate ecosystem of this,  pianet. They belong to everyone.  I was told the forest industry,  thanks to foresight and good  planning, would be harvesting  and processing second growth  timber within 10  years. In that  regard, more power to them.  During man's cycles in  history, work functions have  changed greatly. The sail-  makers, for example, were  made redundant by the advent  of the steam ship, and so on.  The day for the type of logging  presently practiced in BC and its  generated wealth to all related  industries is almost over. It  makes no sense to harvest  everything standing before  drastic changes are forced upon  us.  Unlike the problems facing  Brazil, we do not have abject  poverty, overpopulation and a  huge foreign debt to contend  with. We have none of those excuses which are leading to the  cutting of the world's rain  forests. We have only our  greed. -  The fog comes  On little cat feet.  It sits looking  Over harbour and city  On silent haunches  And then moves on.  Carl Sandburg  In a nutshell  Weeklies in chains  by S. Nutter  Some time back a friend of  mine from the war, a large New  Brunswicker, was running a  weekly newspaper in Minnesota. He had been running a  paper in Ontario but it got  bought up by the Thomson  chain.  Picard liked the town and  tried to get along with the new  management but it was not for  him. Looking about he got the  idea the weeklies in Canada  were probably all fated to go  down to the chains. Against his  otherwise better judgement he  moved to Minnesota.  When I caught up with him  he was back in Toronto,  morosely editing a business  magazine. What happened?  The paper in Minnesota had  been bought by the Thomson  chain.  That was at least 15 years ago  and, sure enough, the chains  have gobbled an overwhelming  majority of Canadian weeklies.  On the BC coast there are now  only three independents. But  the others carry on as before, do  they not? Hands off editorial  policy has carried right along?  What then is wrong with the  chains?  Ownership of the chains has  been by no means lax. Head office for most of the papers is, of  course, Toronto. No editorial  considerations there, so the  whole shebang has fallen,  naturally and inevitably, into  the hands of accountants.  There are, of course, many  wise, kindly and cultured people  who are accountants, but it is  the essence of the 'profes-:  sionalism' of accountants that  they get every last damn penny  out of whatever it is they touch.  Regardless.  Every conceivable shaving of  the operation that might save  money (and counting paper  clips is not just a joke), down to  the attritive dance among  themselves to see who will be  the last to pay their bills, is not  just advisable, its mandatory.  Well, they say, I have a duty  to my stockholders.  And sure they do. It's just  that the local weekly newpaper  may be absolutely the last place  where the well-being of  somebody else's stockholders  should come first.  In a country, democratic by  God, but where the daily press a  mare usque mare is in the hands  of maybe three people and  where the free information of  the airways is locked up in three  channels, it seems to me at least  gross, that the local weeklies  everywhere should also have to  be controlled by three or four  accountants in Toronto.  Why?  There is nothing creative going on here. These fellows do  not start papers, they just clamp  on to papers which are already  going. If in some wondrous  puff some day they were to  disintegrate, it need not mean  the death of a single weekly.  Meanwhile their function in  all the little localities which they  control can only be to be a drag,  to inhibit local creativity and to  drain responsibility from those  who, in particular, should have  it.  Possibly some political party  not in power (meaning either)  might find this something to put  on its agenda. Divest! Divest!  could be the cry. Are we men or  are we data.?  _����___  Sloe  RiBBON  award  Your community's       ^  AWARD-WINNING^  newspaper t  i  Coast News, October 9,1989  I  Editor:  Some time ago I wrote to you  with concerns about an area  that was recently logged on  Elphinstone Ridge. Since then  I've been to the forestry office  where a gentleman was more  than glad to make all sorts of information available to me.  It seems the reason I hadn't  seen that area slated for logging  when I looked at their maps a  few years ago, was because it  was an area of old timber they  had apparently missed. I was  assured while looking at one of  their more recent maps, that  nothing else would be going on  in that area for the next 20  years.  He told me, matter-of-factly,  that they've logged in watersheds before, and there is no  problem if you know what  you're doing.  I don't claim to be an expert,  but I've seen trees of the same  size and number as those they  just logged right in the watershed. Upon asking if their 20 year  projection was iron clad, it took  a little prompting to get the  answer of no., .changes could be  made. Who knows, as the need  for timber increases, maybe  they will 'find' some more old  timber they've missed.  I was amazed to find out that  due to poor management, the  forestry department lost 80 per  cent of its seedling stock this  year. On a brighter note  however, after God only knows  how many fall slash burns have  gotten out of control, they're  finally considering allowing  burns in the spring when it's a  little damper.  I have a great deal of anger  about today's logging practices  but I can't direct it at the man  behind the counter at the  forestry department, nor can I  be angry with the logger. It's the  head of the forestry department  and the big timber companies  that make my blood boil for  they lay down the standards.  How can they be so arrogant  and believe that there is no better method of logging than  theirs?  A man by the name of Merv  Wilkinson who lives in the  Cedar area on Vancouver  Island, owns 137 acres of land  which he has logged about 10  times in the last 50 years.  What's amazing about that fact  is that he has nearly the same  amount of timber as when he  started.  He produces 67,000 board  feet per year and says this is not  sustained yield as such, but  rather a perpetuity term.  He told James Losh of New  Science, "I've written every succeeding cabinet minister giving  them an invitation to come and  see it since I started in the last  days of the coalition. Their  forest minister answered and  did send some of his people  around and they were very  helpful. Other than that, Bob  Williams was the only one that  even had the courtesy to  answer."  (It's been 15 to 20 years) he  adds, "I think they wish I was  dead. It can't be done is the  answer I get when I meet  them."  Merv has a forest as beautiful  as a park, without any of the  problems of other forests in the  area. The only thing he's beginning to notice now is the tops of  liis trees dying from the acid air  from Harmac. He has all the  mathematics to prove of one  better method that works.  It would be at the boundary  of Merv's property I might expect to see a sign that reads: 'A  Managed Forest', not at the  bottom of a burnt out slash with  this year's 20 per cent of what is  left of the seedling stock  ...fighting for survival.  Sam Moses  Editor:  It is indeed heartening to read  so many tributes being paid to  George Hopkins, for the shopper's bus which he inaugurated  and operated so faithfully for so  many years which has made it  possible for many seniors to  stay in their homes when they  could no longer drive.

I don't think  he's left much doubt about  which of his interests comes  first.  On the other hand I just can't  let you get away with saying he  is "probably right" in dismissing the Area A ratepayer movement as "an umbrella group for  the political aspirations of  Howie White."  I have lent the ratepayers my  support because I care very  much about what happens to  this community, and I have  been battling to assure the best  possible future for my family  and my neighbours here since  well   before   Gordon   Wilson  began strutting his stuff on the  local political stage.

He's had to stop hiding  public hearings in Sechelt where  controversial rezoning by-laws  can be slipped through with a  minimum of public participation.  He's agreed to remove the  developer of the controversial  Farrington Cove condo project,  Tom Howatt, and his realtor,  Art Alexander, from the local  Advisory Planning Commission.

He  stopped and rescued them,  holding up two other cars in the  process.  Those kittens could have  been 'mush' or terribly injured  in a few seconds. The senseless  cruelty of abandoning them to  such a 'Russian roulette' fate  boggles the mind, when there is  such an excellent SPCA service  on the Coast.  We held the kittens over the  weekend, started weaning them  and got them over their fear,  then (because we are already  owned by a stray duchess cat  who did not take kindly to the  newcomers) took them down to  the Gibsons Animal Hospital  where SPCA adoptees are accepted.  Here they received instant expert care and attention. They  were examined, given worm  medicine, and placed in a kennel with a nursing tabby-mum  who accepted them immediately. One kitten was adopted  within two days, another a week  later. Meanwhile, we canvassed  all our friends and found a  home for the adopting families.  However, during the canvassing for homes in the Madeira  Park community, I heard of  eight kittens skittering all over  the highway at Middle Point,  two others were left outside the  Oak Tree Market - still others  left wandering in the parking  area.  It is inexcusable to 'dump'  unwanted kittens! October, is  SPCA Awareness Month. Let  us all support and spread the  word about this caring service.  In closing, special thanks are  extended to Dr. Bornstein,  Michelle, Chris and all the staff  at the Gibsons Animal Hospital  for the tender loving care given  to all strays.  Shendra Hanney  responded to charges he willingly aided an attempted land flip  at Farrington Cove, two of his  colleagues on the regional  board, Sechelt Mayor Tom  Meredith and Area E Director  Jim Gurney, have spoken out  against allowing developers to*  use the board in this way.  Ever since the ratepayers have  been shedding light on things,  Mr. Wilson has been noticeably  more attentive to his home area,  announcing new parks and  beautification schemes on an  almost weekly basis. I think this  all bodes well and makes your  concern that the legitimate interests of the area will suffer  seem a bit misplaced.  Mr. Wilson may not like it,  but the democratic system  depends on a little opposition to  work properly. It keeps the  politicians honest.

People  showed up in target numbers to  show the mayor and his council  that we will not sit still and  watch him destroy Hackett  Park.

There is no possible way to fit  all this in and leave room for  anything else in the lower section of the park.  So please Sechelt, sign this  petition and write to your alderman.

Coast News, October 9,1989  by Ellen Frith  ; Jack Forbes (left) from the Federal Health Protection Branch and Mike Nassichuk, head of the water  ; quality unit of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, enlightened the Sunshine Coast Eitvironmeri-  tal Task Force at their meeting last Friday with a report on dioxins and furans. ���Ellen Frith photo  ;Feds here to tell us  About dioxins and furans  bv Ellen Frith  If the Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper (HSPP) mill at Port  Mellon and the Woodfibre mill  near Squamish eliminate dioxins and furans from their effluent completely, how long will  it take the waters of Howe  Sound to recover?  Answer: "It's hard to  answer. Unfortunately the contaminants are stable and build  up in the sediment. Until there  is an accumulation of 'clean'  sediment, we don't know how  long it will take."  With that information, Mike  Nassichuk, head of the water  quality unit of the Department  'of Fisheries and Oceans brought  ito a close a presentation, at last  ��� week's Sunshine Coast Environmental Task Force  meeting, of the toxins plaguing  ;Howe Sound. Nassichuk,  ; representative Jack Forbes from  ;the Federal Health Protection  : Branch and Waste Management  : Technician   Susan   Woodbine  ��� from the provincial Ministry of  ' Environment went a long way  ; in enlightening those present on  ; the nature and potency of the  ; major pollutants in Howe  ;Sound.  ) Basically dioxins and furans  I are ringed molecules bonded  '. with a number of chlorine  .'atoms. Their toxicity varies  'dramatically with the position  \ and number of these chlorine  ��� atoms; 2-3-7-8 tetra-dioxins, for  ; example are some of the most  ; potent.  : According to Nassichuk,  >; there are 75 different dioxins  ��� and 135 different furans in existence and, "we can only  ^measure a certain number of  ;:them."  ' Some sources of dioxins and  furans in the chemical world  are: chlorophenol (used as an  ��� anti-sap stain agent in saw mill  ing), herbicides and PCBs. The  pollutants are also produced by  most forms of combustion,  even household fireplaces.  Other sources in this area are,  of course, the HSPP kraft pulp  and paper mill and any burning  of chlorophenol-tainted wood  chips.  "The 2-3-7-8 tetra-dioxin,"  Nassichuk said, "is the most  toxic, the least water soluble,  the most volatile and the most  resistant to breakdown." The  dioxins do disseminate in high  temperatures and occasionally  with sunlight, he said, but "the  elimination at depth in a marine  environment (such as is done in  the Howe Sound pulp mills) is  hot conducive to breakdown."  Apparently the chemicals also  have a strong affinity to particles which is why they are  found most often in sediment  and therefore affect the marine  life at the bottom of the Sound  accumulating most heavily in  the fatty tissues of crabs,  shrimps and prawns. Salmon,  for one, have been given a  "completely clean bill of  health", although, Nassichuk  said, there are traces of both  chemicals in the fish.  "There is no evidence of the  effect   on   humans,"   Forbes,  said, "except one minor skin  disease."  The dangers of dioxins and  furans was first brought to the  attention of the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans in  January 1988, by the  Greenpeace organization and  "has had a high profile since  then", Nassichuk said.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson asked: "Are we missing  other toxic substances such as  mercury and cadmium by concentrating solely on dioxins?"  "We're pretty confident we  don't see a mercury-related problem"    Jakes    said,    and  DeGraag re-enters  Brenda DeGraag announced  on October 5 she has reconsidered her decision to withdraw  from the nomination and is  back in the running for the  NDP nomination for the Powell  River/Sunshine Coast Constituency in the next provincial  election.  "There was such a ground  swell of support from the  membership and the public at  large", DeGraag said. "I was  most surprised at the response  to my announcement. 1 did not  realize that I had that kind of  support.  "At the urging of a delegation of NDP members and high  profile constituents from the  riding I have decided to re-enter  the race.  "It will be an exciting campa-  ing come the general election",  she said, "especially after the  events of the last few days with  the defection of the four Socred  caucus members who are trying  to distance themselves from  Vander Zalm.  PUBLIC  NOTICE  > Task Force  on Drugs Meeting  Mayor  Wednesday, Oct. 11,1989  at 7:30 pm  Gibsons Council Chambers  474 South Fletcher Road  Everyone Welcome  are  Nassichuk added there  stricter regulations now on the  dumping of cadmium in the  Sound.  Wilson asked Nassichuk if he  felt the pulp mills should pay  compensation to the fishermen  for the lost income suffered  with the closure of the shell fish  industry in the Sound. According to Nassichuk, the federal  government will not pay direct  compensation to the fishermen  because a third party is involved.  The mills have been identified  as the dominant source of contaminants, he said, but the only  way for the fishermen to receive  compensation is through court  action.  Gibsons Council voted  against imposing a speed restriction of 30 kilometres per hour  on Sargent Road and against  erecting a "Caution Children at  Play" sign in the same area at  last week's council meeting,  with Mayor Diane Strom  stating: "Roads are not  playgrounds for children."  She said lowering the speed  limit would not answer the problems in that area, in her opinion, and if council, "did it for  Sargent Road, we'd have to do  it for every side road in Gibsons."  A petition from over a dozen  families living on Sargent Road  was presented to council at its  September 26 meeting asking  that a sign speed limit of 30  kilometres per hour be posted  along with a "Caution Children  at Play" notice in order to  minimize the danger to the  number of small children living  in the neighbourhood. Only  Alderman Ken Collins supported the petition.  At last week's meeting Collins made the motion council  comply with the petition but  there were no seconders for the  motion.  According to Alderman John  Reynolds, one resident of  Sargent Road advised council  not to, "be encouraging the use  of streets as playrounds."  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  agreed.  "Since the request (for a  speed restriction) on Seaview  Road was turned down," she  said, "there are fewer children  on the road."

Coast News, October 9,1989  5.  ������ /  After 25 years of teaching kindergarten at Gibsons Elementary School Sara Bujan (left) is aptly  capable of holding the attention of these students. ���Vera Elliott photo  25 years in kindergarten  by Rose Nicholson  Mrs. Sara Bujan, kindergarten teacher at Gibsons  Elementary School, has tatfght  nearly 2000 children, - but not  all at once of course.  Bujan came to Gibsons in  1964 where she started the first  kindergarten class at the  elementary school.  For 25 years she has taught  the same class, in the same  school. "I'm now teaching the  children of the children I taught  then" she said.  "My goal is to reach 30 years.  It's very rare for a teacher to remain in the same class in the  same school. Some in Vancouver have done it, but none  here.  "I love the age group. Most  teachers want to have changes,  but with kindergarten, every  year and every child is so unique. I think that is why  kindergarten teachers tend to  stay in their jobs. It's such a  special year. It's from home to  school for the first time, it's a  new adventure."  But next year the dual entry  system will change things. "This  is the last year that I can call  them kindergarten students"  she said.  A new system of ungraded  primary classrooms will  eliminate the old kindergarten  concept and children going to  school for the first time will be  going into what will be known  as 'first year primary'.  But Mrs. Bujan will undoubtedly still be there to  welcome the starry-eyed  newcomers, even if she will no  longer be able to call herself a  kindergarten teacher.  And by the time she has completed her 30 years the number  of children she will have taught  should be somewhere around  2250.  Quite a family!  History Society closing  in on waterfront park  by Ellen Frith  According to Gibsons Alderman John Reynolds, the Sunshine Coast Maritime History  Society (SCMHS) is "very  close" to coming back to council with a proposal for the  building of a replica of Captain  Cook's ship, The Discovery, in  s theto^n'gnewwate^pntp^kv,  ������ Before'-'"that happens, and in  spite of entreaties from Alderman Ken Collins to, "give the  society a home", no decision on  the part of council in regards to  the use of the new park for such  a facility can be made, Reynolds  said as last week's council  meeting.  Collins said he had talked  with   both  Minister  of State  Elwood Veitch, and Premier  Bill Vander Zalm during the recent convention of the British  Columbia Union of  Municipalites in Penticton, and  both politicians, according to  Collins, "are enthusiastic about  the SCMHS project." The only  difficulty, Collins told council,  was the fact the society had yet  * to find a, home for its project.  When asked by Collins for  her reservations in regards to  the society using the new waterfront park, Mayor Diane Strom  stated several.  "I have serious doubts," she  said, "in regards to the location  they've chosen. The park is not  a good idea."

Although Strom acknowledged there are no funds available  for the development of the  waterfront park at the moment,  she is optimistic a GO BC grant v  may be possible.  Collins also asked Alderman  Reynolds for his comments.  "I'm looking forward to the ;  ship being built here in the  park," Reynolds said, "but not  until a few hoops we've put in .  front of the society are jumped  through."  Council, he said, is waiting  for the society to come back  with a proposal.  According to Collins, the  waterfront park is, "an area full  of blackberries".  "We would be silly not to  take this opportunity (for the  society to develop the park),"  he said, "which would benefit  merchants in the town through  tourism."  He   contends   the   firehall  might not be an issue as was  previously stated in the society's   ,.���  initial proposition.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  also said the town, "cannot  lose", by allowing the society to  develop the park.  "We are waiting for the  SCHMS' official proposal,"  Reynolds said."

There are also some  *3��orgeous spots where property  *��>wners on either side of the accesses like to keep these trails  *and roads well-hidden from  *"view.  ;�� I can understand their apprehension in having people  J-walk past their places and then  I?it in front of their houses. But  ��jlon't forget the beaches are  ���public property and belong to  ���Everyone. It is also your respon-;  fisibility to take your trash home  ��with you when you leave.  ** Most people are pretty good  ,#about doing this chore as they  'appreciate the beauty of our  i local area and nothing is more  i disgusting than trash left behind  ;to rot, look awful and perhaps  ���make wildlife that might ingest  ;it (plastic for example) very  jsick, perhaps worse.  Right now it appears that  ; local under-30's crowds are be-  ��ing blamed for the trash on the  beaches. From having lived in a  small rental on the beach in  ���Roberts Creek for two wonder-  ;ful summers, I found the worst  ! offenders were the tourists who  lleft all sorts of garbage behind  including dirty diapers. Talk  I about disgusting!  ; Every morning I used to walk  ; the beach area in front of my lit���  ; tie cottage and pick up the garbage that had been brought in  !by the tide the night before,  ! which obviously had been  ! thrown overboard by boaters  j who went by in droves from  ;Vancouver and Gibsons. This  [garbage included such things as  ;the above, plastic milk containers, running shoes, plastic  ;beer holders, of course beer  Jeans, wine bottles, all sorts of  styrofoam and plastic containers. The list is quite endless.  Now the heavy summer tourist season is over, so maybe we  could all get our act together,  take our trash home, and not  disturb waterfront residents so  we can still enjoy our beaches  and not have curfews such as 10  pm closures put upon us..  RESTRUCTURING  The Restructuring Meeting of  the Roberts Creek Community  Associaton had a fairly light  turnout, but the general opinion  of the group was unanimous.  Everyone there agreed that  Roberts Creek should remain as  one regional district. It would  serve no purpose to break up  the district into, two or more  districts, and joining with either  Gibsons or Sechelt would also  serve no purpose.  A letter from the association  will be sent to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs requesting information on regional district  and municipal status.  GIRL GUIDES  The Roberts Creek Girl  Guide Pack is in desperate need  of one, perhaps two experienced  Guide leaders, otherwise the  pack will have to fold.  Brownies almost came to that  end, however.two kind ladies  who had been Guide leaders in  another area offered their services.  KIDS DANCE  Last weekend at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall there  was a great dance put on for  Grade 6 and 7s from the school.  Everyone had a good time  and the two moms who organized it all would like to thank the  Gibsons merchants who very  kindly donated prizes for the  dance.

After the quake: use the  telephone only for emergency;  listen for instructions on your  battery radio; keep out of  damaged buildings; ease the  strain by talking to your companions about the experience;  check chimneys before firing  up.  Schools on the Sunshine  Coast now have an earthquake  manual, and have had Earthquake Awareness sessions to inform parents, children and  teachers. Regular drills are carried out in the schools for what  to do inside the buildings and  out. All to special signals.  A classroom drill, for instance, begins with taking cover  under desks or tables with backs  to windows, or in the CRASH  position (on knees, head down,  hands clasped behind the head,  or back of head covered by  book or jacket). Remain for a  count of 60, the expected duration of an earthquake at any  one time.  Not a bad drill for folk in  shops or offices, eh?  Y'-' James   Davidson,   Cedar  'J Grove Principal, says' he gamed  a clear understanding of the  hazards in an earthquake when  he was caught in one in the early  70's in Los Angeles.  "We'll certainly do our  drills." A thought echoed by  other principals we talked to.  And budget requirements to  quake-proof school buildings is  one more cost for the school  board to deal with. Perhaps the  top-heavy administration could  be pared down at some dollar  saving and likely no ill effect on  the system at all because of the  cuts. ',.���"'���'���' '���-.':.

Please be quick to note that this  woman plays piano and sings.  Scratch your head and say it's  old fashioned...then think  about Nat Cole, Oscar Peterson, Roberta Flack, Bobby  Short, Aretha Franklin and  Carmen McRae.  If any of these names makes  you think about attention to the  detail of the music, respect for  the composer, author, belief in  the timelessness of superb quality and the exquisiteness of  sound that is organically produced then...think about Louise  Rose.  In an age where the measure  of talent and worth is who you  know, the number of albums  you've cut and on what label,  and how many videos you've  done, it's refreshing to know  that there is still at least one ar  tist whose sense of glitz is how  can she tell people about the  beauty of "Old Cape Cod" so  that even if they've never been  there they can still see it in their  mind's eye, feel it on their skin  and be there in their hearts.  That is what this woman,  Louise Rose is about.  In an age where the measure  of success is how many albums  went gold, how many Junos  you got, how many Grammys  you get...it's thrilling to know  that there is at least one artist  who believes that success is best  measured by the sense of  satisfaction derived from doing  a job from heart to heart.  Louise Rose is a multidimensional artist...she sings, she  plays, she writes, she acts, she  teaches, she conducts and she  does everything she does with  the highest sense of integrity  and attention. It is with the  greatest    pride    that    we  say, "You're gonna' love Louise  Rose".  Louise Rose will appear at  the Pender Harbour School of  Music at 8 pm on Saturday, Oc  tober 21. Tickets are available at  Talewind Books in Sechelt and  in Pender Harbour at the Paper  Mill and Miss Sunny's Hair  Boutique.  MOMS & TOTS {to 3 yrs.)  For structured play & socializing!

A number of local artists  have submitted works to the  Burnaby Art Gallery's 'The  Fax' exhibition, which will continue until October 29.  As the name suggests, work is  submitted via fax machine.

OPEN HOUSE  John and Elspeth Logan will  have an open house at the  Lions' Hall in the afternoon  and evening of October 14 to  celebrate their 50th anniversary.

In it his writings  are finally acclaimed as works  of unquestioned genius. Huge  crowds have gathered to pay  him respectful homage. At last  they have acknowledged his true  worth. He rewards them with  mellifluous speeches full of profound philosophy and universal  truth. No longer does he require  the services of that wheedling,  scrounging hack writer,  Thomas Kelley.  A rattling clamor from reality  shatters the fantasy. Herb snaps  awake, his creaky defensive  reflexes still functioning. The  insane German is using his front  door for a kettle drum again.  "Open up, you crooked old  bastard!" the German shouts.  "We are going to have a talk!"  Herb stiffens and sits as still  as waxen-faced Clara Phillips.  If he keeps silent perhaps the  idiot will give up and go away.  A nervous glance at the door  reassures him that the burglar  chain is securely in place. The  banging continues. Herb feels  his heart racing.  "I know you're in there!" the  German yells.  The hammering stops. Suddenly the German throws all his  weight against the door. With a  grinding crash the lock breaks.  The door comes violently open  to the length of the chain. The  German peers through the gap  and spots Herb. "I knew you  were there, you old  sonofabitch!" he snarls.  Again and again the German  throws his weight against the  chained door. Herb watches,  frozen with fear, as the door  frame gives way and the door  flies completely open.  "Listen," Herb quavers, "we  can make a deal."  The German pulls Herb to his  feet. "I'll make a deal with you  alright. Bastard!"  A fist pounds into Herb's  cheek. Another blow smacks  against his jaw, then another,  and another. Herb's knees  buckle. The German, his rage  suddenly spent, tosses Herb's  sagging body to the floor as if  he were a rag doll.  "You bastard," he whispers,  and strides out through the  broken door.  Under the impersonal gaze of  Clara and Alphonse the old  cracksman lies in a limp huddle,  moaning in pain and outrage.  To be continued...  Self-deception is tricky  5 by Penny Fuller  ,   \ Self-deception is a tricky  business. How can you really  know if you're deluding  yourself? If you are, in fact,  buying into a self-created fantasy then should you be able to  question the validity of that fantasy. It comes down to the  original catch-22: if you're  aware enough to question your  sanity then you must be sane,  because truly insane people  don't know they're insane.  -Neptune represents illusion  and delusion. Named after the  God of the Seas, its existence  was established in a manner that  fitted it well - nobody could see  it with the telescopes that existed at the time, but they knew  something was there because of  fits effect on the orbit of nearby  Uranus.  g John Adams and Urbain  Leverrier worked out the  mathematical calculations  establishing the planet's existence in 1846, and then began  f to argue about who should get  credit for the discovery. Deception and lack of clarity have  been associated with Neptune  since its existence was first  postulated.  Astrologically, Neptune also  represents that nebulous and intangible connection to something greater than ourselves  -"God" or whatever you  choose to call it. Its position in a  birth chart will indicate a lot  about a person's spirituality.  At this point in time, the  energies that Neptune represent  are being;interwoven with:thos��  of the planet which represents  the "cosmic two-by-four between the eyes" - Saturn. The  combination is causing a lot of  people to* question the validity  of their spirituality. Saturn says  "be realistic". It demands proof, evidence, justification and  rational analysis.  Because the spiritual path is  so personal, so individual and  so intangible the questioning a  person does about his or her  belief system can be extremely  painful. Of course you doubt  your beliefs. These aren't things  that can be proven or disproven <  in the physical sense.  I can't even say "In the end  you'll discover that of course  you were right all along." Jim  Bakker is currently acting out  the  struggle  which  is  taking  place inside a lot of people;  Whether or not you agree with  his form of evangelism, youY  must acknowledge that, as a  human being, he is probably noO  immune to the torture of self**,  doubt.   Are   those   doubts  '"justified? Are yours? Are-miriet A  It may help to know the"in:; :t  sensity of this process should!  diminish by the beginning,of the!  new year. In the meantime, it is  difficult to offer any-specific*  guidance in handlingthecurrent |  any  confusion.   There   aren't  standard formulas to use.  You should know this is a  stage of spiritual growth, and if  you try to formulate a personal  dogma while experiencing this  time of self-doubt, you will probably make yourself really  miserable. Instead, try to simply  experience, the process and see  where it takes you.  New Year's Eve, this year,  will actuary be an ideal time to  start to sort out your beliefs.  Until thini know that; you're  v not *albne in trying andj feline  the undefinable, and nobody is  having any more success than  you are. Perhaps the answers  are irrelevant and it's really only  the questioning that has  significance.

There is always a severe lack of  funding.  A few of us attended a  meeting in the Sechelt Health  Centre on September 25 to  discuss things that seniors are  able to do to help themselves.  Our representatives at the  meeting seemed to be of the  unanimous opinion, that with  the facilities available to us at  the present time, our branch is  providing as full a program as is  possible for members particularly, and seniors generally.  Our present hall is such that our  branch is limited to one activity  at a time.  Ideas were "bandied about"  by all those present, for a plan  to shake loose some of our self-  imposed shut-ins, and get them  back into every day living. The  consensus of opinion seemed to  be that a great number of these  people must enjoy being alone,  or they would come out and enjoy what amenities are available  to them at a very limited cost.  The meeting was adjourned  without setting a date for a  future meeting. The ball was  left in the senior's court.  MEMBERSHIP  1989 membership in Branch  69 closes at the end of October.  Members prior to that time are  eligible to attend the branch  Christmas Dinner which is being held this year on December  7.

As mentioned in  the past, this is a meeting of the  three branches of the Senior  Citizen's Association of BC to  get together semi-annually to  discuss problems and exchange  ideas favourable to our  organizations.  Members interested in attending should contact Tom Bitting at 885-2461 in order that  our host branch may make the  necessary arrangements for the  lunch which will be served prior  to the meeting.  presents    -W; :'. ,MmBwW&mwpmmm  IN  CONCERT  e____yeni_  Natural Elements, a band at the front of  Vancouver's Celtic surge.

M  i  Coast News, October 9,1989  r  11.  4  i  5;^  s .* J  I  is  i  3  1  1  .:���:���**  by Penny Fuller  You're a single parent and  your monthly income is $750  per month. It's three days until  your next cheque arrives and  things are pretty bad, but you  think you can make it to Friday.  Then your two children arrive  home from school. Guess what?  It's hot dog day at school and  the children each need a dollar  if they're going to join their  buddies in the hot dog line. Two  lousy bucks!, But you just don't  have it and the children are getting used to the idea that they  can't have what the other kids  have.  This is the kind of frustration  and pressure that low income  parents run into all the time.  These experiences have been put  into a board game, a kind of  reverse Monopoly game, 'The  Poverty Game' which has  become a training tool for social  workers all over Canada.  One of the game's creators,  Giselle Plimley, lives on the  Sunshine Coast and recently  received the Social Justice  FoundJffibn Award for her part  in its development and her  ongoing battle with discrimination against'the poor'.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Plimley described  the game and its origins. In  1980, living in Dawson Creek,  she was one of six single  mothers on social assistance  who were trying to improve  their lives.  "One day," she says, "we  were sitting around complaining  about the social workers and  wishing we could put them on  assistance for a month." The  'bitch session' quickly became a  brain-storming session and the  Poverty Game was created.  The game involves taking on  a role. Players roll the dice and  as they travel around the game  board they encounter the kinds  of choices and problems that  confront low-income people  every week. The situations have  all been drawn from; personal  experience.  The game is presented as a  full day workshop and soon  after its development, the  women realized it had to be  modified. The frustration of  trying to survive on a poverty  income was overwhelming for  some people and the designers  added a long debriefing session  after the actual game to help  people looked at options.  The game, Plimley says, has  been a success. It's well known  throughout Canada as a sensitizing tool for anyone who  deals with low-income families.  Universities have picked it up,  and also church groups. Inquiries   have   come  in   from  Sweden, Germany and France  about the game.  Meanwhile, on the Sunshine  Coast, Giselle Plimley is beginning to look at the situation here.  "It seems as if people here are  really well off or really poor.  It's extremes," she says.  Exactly how bad the situation  is and what services are  available to people on low-  income is something that needs  to be investigated. Through the  Action Centre, Plimley is beginning a survey to get some  answers.  The survey will be done on a  personal interview basis. People  who are on social assistance,  unemployment insurance or a  low-income from any source  will be asked to discuss what  services they've used, what they  need and how the system is  helping or hindering them.  Additionally, Plimley hopes  to organize a support group  similar to a highly successful  group she began in Dawson  Creek - 'Branching Out'. This  anti-poverty group provides  education and advocacy for  people dealing with 'the system'  and has been operating for nine  years in the North.  "When we first started," she  recalls, "social workers would  slam the door in our faces. They  didn't want anything to do with  us. They finally got to the point  where they were referring people to us, using us as mediators  and an information resource f0r  people." I  Plimley will be working witji  the Action Centre but much cff  the work will be done out of her  home. Anyone wishing to participate in the survey can call her  at 885-2079, or leave a message  at the Unemployment Action  Centre in Gibsons.  Quilters' Guild  A group of ten women  gathered at St. Mary's Church  Hall in Gibsons last week to  form a quilters guild. Two  similar groups already exist in  Sechelt and one in Pender Harbour.  This group plans to get  together at least once a month  in the daytime to promote and  share quilting on the Lower  Coast. If you think you'd like to  be involved, call Lise in the  Creek at 885-3259 (mornings).  However, if you can't make  the day meetings and would  rather meet at night leave your  name with Linda at Sew Much  More in the mall 886-3818 from  Tuesday to Thursday.  If enough people show interest, an evening group can be  formed as well.

The Juried Show can be seen  until October 29 during regular  hours of 11 to 4 Wednesday to  Saturday and 1 to 4 Sunday.  (he Caa*t  It's Friday afternoon and I need a break, so my colleagues  and I headed on down to Mariners' Restaurant on the waterfront in lower Gibsons for a taste treat. And taste treat it was.  Mariners' Executive Chef, Sheila Herron must have passed  with flying colours under the direction of Jim Lincez.  We sat at a window table with the sun shining beautifully  and the fog rolling around on the water. It looked very eery, a  scene you will often see though along the coast this time of  year.  A large variety of sumptuous lunches were available.  Everything from Caesar Salad at $4.50 to Charbroiled  Swordfish at $7.95. Swordfish? Sounds exotic but I think I'll  try one of their many Cajun recipes.  Their burgers range from Red Snapper and Oyster to Cajun Burger at $5.95, which one of my friends chose. It was a  huge pattie with lots of hot sauce and the usual burger fixings  on it. She couldn't finish it all.  My other friend chose Rainbow Rotini (brown, green and  orange pasta) with fresh Tuna, Pinenuts and Mushrooms in  cream sauce for $6.95. This was a great dish too, she said, but  she also could not finish it all.  I love the hot stuff so it was Red Snapper Creole at $6.95  for me. It was hot and spicey^ just the way I like it, and came  with a very different salad of yellow pepper, raisins, broccoli  and more.  Altogether our bill was under $30 including drinks. Very  reasonable for today's restaurant prices, I thought. We'll be  back again soon!  Average meal prices do not include laquor  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

That was  quite an accomplishment and  must have been because of a  group that melded well.  The 18-hole ladies completed  their two-day Eclectic Turkey  Shoot on Tuesday with the  following results: First,  Dorothy Fraser (60), then, in  order, Jo Emerson (61); Rita  Hinks (63); Ruby Head  (64-bb9); Celia Meda (64-bb9)  and Mary Horn (64).  The nine hole ladies results in  the Turkey Shoot are as  follows: First, Mary Ewan; second, Lucette Venables; tied for  third, Beth Niddery and Marion  Brant.  Low net winners for those  not in the Turkey Shoot were:  First, Doreen McGrath; second,  Edna Fisher and third,  Marianne Hagar.  REMINDERS  The ladies are reminded to  sign up for the Fall Luncheon  on October 17. The lunch will  be served at 12:30.  The Awards Night is set for  Wednesday, November 1 with  tickets available at the pro shop.  A sad thing happened last  week. Bob Williams left his  power cart at the sixth tee to be  picked up for the second nine.  Someone or group tied it to a  tree with a strong rope which  was not seen by Bob.  When he took off in the cart  the rope tore off the rear  bumper and severely damaged  the frame of the cart. The cost  of repair was considerable. We  hope whomever the pranksters  were, they really got a lot of fun  from this, as no one else seems  to have.  It might also be best if the  party involved were to contact  Bob and make compensation  before they are found out via  the grapevine.  Work on the third green is  coming along nicely. The result  is going to be a longer hole, a  larger green and for everyone's  convenience a sandy depression  on the left side (meant to stop  balls from running out of  bounds?).  Since the trap on the right  side, which will remain, has  been named by some members  the 'Lefeaux Depression', these  members wish to know if there  is any objection to naming the  new addition Stuart's South  Beach, or has someone a prior  claim to this area?

It is expected there will be a  surplus of approximately  $60,000 by the end of 1989,  which will bring the  total budget to  $133,000.  Steve Alexander,  Coast Regional District Parks  Superintendent, told commission members he expects  maintenance costs to be up  slightly next year for an  estimated total of $25,000. One  of the major items will be care  of the new grass of the playing  field at Cliff Gilker Park.  expected  around  Sunshine  Capital improvements being  considered are a septic field and  public washrooms, and soccer  goals and nets at Cliff Gilker;  an outdoor cookhouse and  playground equipment at  Whispering Firs and benches at  Soames Hill. Also discussed was  lighting at Brothers Park and  washrooms and picnic tables at  White Tower Park.  It was decided to postpone a  decision on upgrading the beach  access at the foot of Geddes  Road in Roberts Creek. Natural  erosion is a continuing problem  in the area and Alexander  recommended, for the time being, it might be wise not to encourage public use of the access.  Final decision^on the budget,  will be made at the  commission's next meeting.  A television script, prepared  Coast youth soccer  The Sunshine Coast Youth  Soccer started the 1989/90  season on Saturday, September  30 and the weekly standings will  be in the papers each week.  There are four age groups in  soccer this year! The 6 and 7  year olds, 8 and 9 year olds, 10  and 11 year olds and the 12 and  13 year olds.  The 6 and 7 year old age  group is called mini soccer and  is played on a scaled down field.  There is no off-side rule or 18  yard line and you have to be  outside a six yard radius half-  circle in front of the goal when  you shoot the ball to score.  This age group is noncompetitive meaning team standings  are not kept.  All the other age groups are  considered competitive meaning  team standings are kept and at  the end of the soccer season  trophies are given out to the  team in each age group that  have the most points.  At the present the  teams are  listed   by   jersey   colour   and  coaches name. We will be call  ing the teams by their  sponsors  name when we get all  our spon-  sors lined up.  8 and 9 Year Olds  W L T P  Sechelt Blues  (Bob Weston)  0 10 0  Sechelt Reds  (John Miller)  10 0 2  Roberts Creek  (Leif Mjanes)  0 0 0 0  Gibsons Red & White  (Kevin Ryan)  0 10 0  Gibsons Orange  (Bob Crosby)  10 0 2  10 and 11 Year Olds  WL T P  Sechelt Yellows  (Jim Brown) 0 0 0 0  Gibsons Reds  (Larry O'Donaghey) 0 10 0  Gibsons Red & White  (Alex Skytte) 10 0 2  12 and 13 Year Olds  WL T P  Sechelt Yellows  (Gary Bradshaw) 10 0 2  Gibsons Blues  (John Morris) 0 10 0  Gibsons  Swimming Pool  Call 886-9415 for futher information  Family  Public  Early Bird  Aqua-Fit  Ease-Me-ln  Noon Swim  Lessons  Swim Club  Swim Fit  Sundays  1:00  3:30  Mondays  6:30  9:00-  10:00-  11:30  3:30  7:30  8:30  -3:30  - 5:00  -8:30  10:00  11:00  - 1:00  - 7:30  -8:30  -9:30  Thursdays  Parent _ Tot  Adpt.

(See accompanying arti-  C'C.) ���Vern KlliolJ pholo  Creek students shine  Last spring, during the long  weekend in May, a group of  students from Roberts Creek  Elementary School attended the  BC Elementary School Track  and Field Championships.  The group knew they'd done  well, but it wasn't until a few  days before school started in  September that they realized  they had rated 24th in the province, Principal Stewart Hercus  told the school board last week.,  In total, the students won 22  ribbons and four silver medals.'  Their success, Hercus told the  trustees, was due to the hard  work of Mrs. Delos Santos,  their coach, the teaching staff,  all.of whom helped them train,  and the committment of the  students themselves.  The board was introduced to  Mrs. Delos Santos and several  of the athletes and Chairman  Maureen Clayton presented  each of the participants with a  'Certificate of Excellence'.  Administrator Cliff Smith expressed his admiration for the g  group. "This is an example of  what co-operation can do."  Mrs. Delos Santos said the  students will be training again  this year and hope to do even  belter.  mportant Heritage meeting  ?  v  by Gwen Robertson  An   introduction   to   local  heritage  will  be held  in  the  Marine Room, Wednesday, October 11 at 6 pm. Following is a  first chapter drawn from The  West  Howe Sound  Story by  Francis J. Van, Den Wyngaert,  jwhich I now attempt to sum-.  jmafize^while purposely- leaving  'some blanks.  Born, in England in 1829,  George Gibsons Sr. ran away to  sea at the age of 12. On a windjammer, he learned the art of  sailing and decided to make it  his career. He joined the Royal  Navy and rose to the rank of  lieutenant.  George left England and the  Royal Navy (?) for the United  States and worked on the  Mississippi river boats. While  on the river boats, George  decided he wanted to own land  and left the river to go to Ontario, where he purchased land  and settled there (where ? when  ?) and got involved in mixed  farming where he became internationally successful.  In 1885, George Sr. and his  two sons George Jr. and Ralph  left Ontario, by train to San  Francisco and then, by boat, to  Vancouver.  .... Mrs. Gibson andcthe rest of  the'family travelled*: to Vancouver by the Canadian Pacific  Railway on its first run after the  western terminus was completed. The Glassfords (in-laws)  and the Fletchers came by the  same route (time?).  Living in the 'tent town' that  was Vancouver after the great  fire, the three families 'were  close neighbours and George  Sr., for a time served as alderman. However, gainful employment was scarce so, in 1885,  George Sr. and his two sons  went over to Nanaimo - a thriving, fast-developing deep-sea  port, to find employment.  Quote Of The Week  Blessed is the man that hath acknowledged his belief in  God and in his signs, and recognized that "He shall not be  asked of His doings". _.    ,���,  Baha'i' Writings  Informal discussions Mon. Eves. 886-2078   886-7329  While working on the waterfront, George Sr., with his two  sons built a small sloop from  low-grade lumber bought locally and, when completed, they  set sail, in the Swamp Angel,  for Lulu Island where Don  Woodward, a neighbour from  Ontario, had acquired land at  the mouth qflfhe Fraser River.  Gale winds caused them to  seek shelter on Keats Island for  the night, and winds again  brought them around Salmon  Rock to what is now Gibsons  Harbour. George Gibsons Sr.  pre-empted Lot DL 686 - 160  acres, fed by numerous springs  which, eventually, yielded ex  cellent fruit and vegetables sold  by George on the corner of  Main and Hastings in Vancouver.  George Glassford, husband  of Mary Gibson, purchased DL  687 on one side of George Sr.,  and George Gibsons Jr. preempted DL 685 on the other  side of his father, and this was  the beginning of the Howe  Sound communtiy known, until  the 1950's, as Gibsons Landing,  BC.

Highway signs denoting the  above are in plain view for  motorists, on both roads.  Vehicles seen disobeying these  signs will be charged accordingly.  The fine for Failing to Obey a  Traffic Signal Device is S75, as  well as three points on your  licence.  On October 1 someone  entered an unlocked car parked  in the gravel parking lot beside  the Twilight Theatre.  The culprit(s) ripped away  part of the dashboard and  yanked out an Audiovox  Equalizer.  In the month of September,  Gibsons detachment picked up  15 impaired drivers where  charges have been laid or are  pending.  In addition 14 other drivers  were issued 24 hour licence  suspensions.  Sometime during the hours of  9:30 pm on September 22 and  10 am of September 23, culprits  smashed four windows at the  rear of the swimming pool by  throwing large rocks through  them.  Anyone who has any information on this incident is asked  to contact the Gibsons RCMP  or Crimestoppers at 886-TIPS.  SECHELT RCMP  On October 3 a break-in occurred at Cafe Pierrot. A small  quantity of liquor was stolen, as  well as cash.  The Pharmasave in the Trail  Bay Mall was also the victim of  a break-in during the early  hours of October 1.  These two break-ins are being  investigated by the Sechelt  RCMP. A reward can be obtained from Crimestoppers by  calling 886-TIPS.  Three adult males have been  charged with break, enter and  theft in relation to the break-in  at the Pender Harbour Chevron  in August. These same individuals are also charged with  the Homestead Restaurant  break and enter in August.  A Sechelt residence was searched in relation to the Pender  Harbour Chevron break and,  enter and a quantity of stolen  goods were recovered. The  items had been stolen from  various Sechelt locales. One  adult male has been charged  with possession of stolen property.  On October 5, a Sechelt resident parked his car near Teredo  Square and left the keys in the  ignition. While the car owner  was away from his car another  Sechelt resident got in the car  and drove away.  Turns out the lady who took  the car has a similar car and she  thought it was hers. She realized  her mistake about two hours  later and called the actual  owner.

When the facility is completed in 1992 it will generate 85  megawatts of electricity which is  approximately 15 per cent of the  output of BC Hydro's proposed  Site C project. It will also provide significant environmental  benefits by utilizing hog fuel  that is currently being disposed  of in landfills or incinerated in  beehive burners.  Details of the project were  announced at a media conference held jointly by the company and the utility in Van  couver on October 3. The conference was co-chaired by Larry  Bell, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of BC Hydro,  and Peter J.G. Bentley, Co-  Chairman of Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper Limited.  The Honourable Bruce  Strachan, Minister of Environment, attended on behalf of the  provincial government.  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  is currently expanding and  modernizing its existing pulp  mill at Port Mellon and adding  a newsprint plant with an  associated thermo-mechanical  pulp mill. It is the largest capital  project under way in the province with a cost well in excess  of $1 billion, including the  generating facility.  The new generating facility  will supply 70 per cent of the  120 megawatts of electricity required by the new mill. The  balance will be purchased from  BC Hydro.  Within the framework of  Hydro's Power Smart program,  industry is being encouraged to  install its own electrical  generating facilities, thereby  relieving some of the demand  on the utility. In this way,  Hydro is able to defer the construction of high capital cost  facilities such as hydroelectric  dams.  The new generating faciltiy  will use steam from both the  mill's recovery boiler and from  a hog fuel boiler. These state-  of-the-art boilers will operate at  high temperature and high  pressure to maximize power  generating capabilities.  Please turn to page 16  MARINE SERVICES  Mcadwato Marina (1986) Od.

Her subject: Women  for a Meaningful Summit  (WMS), an organization in  which she represents Canadian  Voice of Women.  Women for a Meaningful  Summit is a coalition of  women's national and international organizations and individuals committed to reversing the arms race. Started in  Nairobi in 1985, WMS in now  endorsed by more than 80  organizations.  Swiss-born Gilchrist, described in her biography as a "Canadian feminist and peace'  activist", is currently a member  of the Voice of Women's  (VOW) National Administrative Committee and has  represented VOW international-.  ly.  VOW has had members present at almost all of the important occasions attended by  WMS which, since it has been  an organization recognized in  foreign policy circles, has participated in numerous activites.  These include, among many,  , Ihe Women's Summit in  Greece, April/May 1988, which  ���was attended by women leaders  from the US, the USSR and  resource people from nine coun-  "r tries, and women leaders at the  Moscow Summit, June, 1988,  whoa the women met with Raisa  andMikail Gorbechev as well as  others.  NATO   and   Warsaw   Pact  policies have been studied and  questioned  with  official  representatives* from   these   org-  ; anizations and member coun-  ��� tries. Women have already met  | with Gorbachev but, so far, not  with   an   American   president  although a meeting with Presi-  dent^sh,^, pj9po��?dt{or,4next  year.  Gilchrist and her colleagues  lare acknowledged by WMS as  having*; made important contributions on these occasions.  WMS * wants to empower  women to influence the world's  ipolicy makers . and to give  !women a voice in foreign  ^policy.  As a member of WMS, the  Canadian Voice of Women provides one of the important links  between what is going on internationally and what Canadians  could contibute nationally to  the progress towards disarmament negotiations and a  peaceful world.  The "Making the World a  Home"   program   includes,  along   with   Saturday's   guest  ^speaker,   panel   discussions,  ^workshops,   planning  sessions  f arid various other activities.

Coast News, October 9,1989  by Dave Fraser  After weathering stormy  waters the final draft of the  Sechelt Inlet's Coastal Strategy  is ready for the 11 signatures of  participants in a unique model  for inter-agency/public  cooperation.  "It's absolutely wonderful,"  said Gordon Wilson, chairman  of the Foreshore Advisory Task  Force (FATF), after a consen  sus was reached among the  working committee Wednesday  morning.  The strategy aims to  "establish the framework for  wise and appropriate use of  coastal resources, thereby providing opportunities for use,  protecting critical environmental resources and minimizing  conflict."  The project has been co-  sponsored   by   the   Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  and the Sechelt Municipal  District, and was1 done by  Catherine Berris Associates in  association with a working committee from the task force.  The strategy identified current uses and preferred uses for  a 200 metre depth of the  foreshore and upland around  Sechelt, Salmon and Narrows  Inlet.  One small area at the tip of  Sechelt Inlet near Tuwanek remained the most controversial  aspect of the plan. The area was  to be designated a 'resource  management area'.  At a public meeting Tuesday  night Diana Davidson, a task  force member representing the  Tuwanek Ratepayer's Association said no one from the community agreed with the designation, which allows log dumps  and aquaculture.  #Hf%  ���*ttW-  Sunshine Coast Regional District  BULLETIN BOARD  Royal Terraces Building  5477 Wharf Rd., Sechelt  P.O.

Come and join in, it's your interest  and participation that has helped to  make the Sunshine Coast Emblem a  success!  Emblem Committee of the  Sunshine Coast  Economic Development Commission  ,7'rV.  She urged the task force to  take the designation out of the  document. "It's the thin edge of  the wedge. It doesn't matter  how many alerts you have.  Once you have it in as a  resource management area  you'll never get it out." '  Davidson suggested' recreation was a desirable alternative  to logging the area.  Davidson also criticized the  task force for not implementing  an environmental study before  proceeding with any new zoning.  Wilson explained there was  not enough funds in the study's  budget to finance an environmental study. But he said  the task force had been pressuring the Ministry of Environment for two years to do an environmental assessment of the  . area.  Three amendments were  made to the final draft during  Wednesday's meeting. Firstly,  any further changes to the plan  must be brought back to the  committee and to the public.  Secondly, Tuwanek will be  listed as an 'area of conflict'  with a history of the conflict  over its designation written into  the plan's text.  Public meetings will also be  required if the area is to be  designated as a log dump or  other commercial use, Wilson  said. He added the committee  would search for an alternate  site to designate as a resource  management area.  The third amendment covers  times when there is no consensus among the agencies involved. In such cases the plan will  only be amended temporarily  for up to one year. After that  the agency would have to come  back to the task force and the  public for further approval.  For instance, Wilson says, someone logging a property  without water access could apply for a permit to access the inlet  to boom their logs. But the permit would only be short term,  on a one-time-only basis.  Wilson said once signed and  adopted by the SCRD and  Sechelt District Council, the  study will go back to the  ^Ministryof Municipal Affairs,,,.  He hoped the inlet could "be  incorporated and, after geo-  technical and environmental  work is done, a community plan  drawn up. He expected the  Ministry of Crown Lands and  Ministry of Forests and Lands  would be uneasy about such a  proposal as they control much  of the uplands surrounding the  inlet.  Davidson also criticized the  way data was collected for the  study. "The impression is that  she just talked to people at random. That is not the way to find  out how to zone the inlet.  "Data needs to be systematically collected as to the inlet's  environmental tolerance," she  noted in her written brief  presented to council.  There were also complaints  the strategy was not advertised  well enough. More public  meetings should have been called in the inlet area or a referendum called to adopt the plan,  noted one critic.  But one committee member  said there had been ample opportunity to discuss the plan  with meetings advertised three  weeks in advance and a display  held at a local mall with questionnaires handed out.  Davidson and others in the  gallery accused the plan of being toothless.  Wilson said although the  document was not legally binding it was the best way the  regional district had of dealing  with an area controlled by eight  different jurisdictions - the  SCRD, District of Sechelt,  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans, Ministry of Agriculture  and Fisheries, Ministry of  Crown Lands, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Forests  and Lands and Ministry of  Municipal Affairs.  Also represented on the committee are representatives from  the Sechelt Indian District, the  community and the Council of  Forest Industries.  The task force also came  under fire for agreeing to a finfish designation for the temporary relocation of netpens in  cases of severe algae blooms.  Residents from the north end of  the Sechelt Peninsula complained about noise and effluent  from net pens being towed  around the inlet.  Wilson said the temporary  net pen designation was included because, of pressure from the  Ministry of Agriculture arid  Fisheries. But he said the  designation was useless because1  there is no way to assure a  specified area would be free of  bloom for any given year.  Private energy  Continued from page 15  Operating the boilers at  temperatures close to 1100�� C  virtually eliminates the creation  of dioxins commonly produced  by inefficient, low temperature  burning.  More than a dozen wood products manufacturing facilities  on BC's south coast will supply  the boiler with hog fuel, which  is wood waste such as bark,  sawdust and shavings. The  boiler will consume 400,000  gravity packed units or approximately 2.3 million cubic metres  (80 million cubic feet) of hog  fuel annually which is  equivalent to two scowloads  daily.  Hog fuel is usually disposed  of in landfill sites which are  becoming scarce in the south  coast area, or burned in inefficient beehive burners. The Port  Mellon generating facility will  consist of several major components. A back pressure turbine rated at 62.5 megawatts  will come on line in August 1990  using steam from the mill's new  recovery boiler which is  scheduled to begin operation at  that time.  A second, condensing turb-  nine, rated at 50 megawatts, will  commence operation at partial  capacity in March 1991. It will  come up to full capacity when  the new hog fuel boiler is completed in April 1992.  This combination of generating equipment will allow the  facility to produce electricity at  a constant rate.

T.M.Forsyth  District Highways Manager  Ministry Official  %��i  Ministry of Transportation  and Highways  Honourable Neil Vant. Minister  Giving You the Freedom to Move  Editor:  Regarding your editorial in  the Coast News of October 2,  referring to our deep troubles in  Pender Harbour as a "nasty little squabble" and our  Ratepayers Association "probably" as an ���'umbrella  organization for...political  aspirations".  I am astonished that you  think that any of us would go to  so much trouble to revive our  Ratepayers Association unless  we found it absolutely essential  to do so, in the face of enormous changes that are being  made right now to the community in which we have chosen  to live.  These changes, made without  proper discussion within our  community, involve:  1. The hundred-unit development at Farrington Cove, with  all that portends in pressure on  sewage, water, roads and  schools;  2. The development of Pearson Island at the entrance to our  harbour, which may not be as  self-sufficient as the developers  would like us to think it is, and  is therefore a potential burden  on all the rest of us;  3. The current and future  development of homes right on  the shores or our drinking water  supply, Garden Bay Lake;  4. Rezoning that will change  the way of life for many of our  fishermen and other individuals  who work now out of their own  house and even more current;  5. The lopping off of a section of our tax base in Area A,  which will increase our taxes.  Unfortunately, we do not  think our elected representative  has properly represented us in  these matters. Rather than trying to descredit our earnest efforts, we would hope that Gordon Wilson will wake up to our  needs and work with us for the  ecologically sustainable community to which we all aspire.  Edith Iglauer Daly.  Wilson has "seen the light"  Editor:  There has been quite a  newsworthy development in the  Farrington Cove controversy  which I tried to point out in a  letter to the other paper last  week, but I guess they figured it  wasn't complimentary enough  to Gordon Wilson. I don't  know why.  The fact is I want to congratulate Gordon, because he  has finally seen the light and  bounced the flipper twins off  his APC. I'm quite proud of  this because he did it the very  week after I called upon him to  do it in a letter to the editor.  I guess he decided after all it  was not such a good idea to  have the guy behind the most  notorious land flip in Pender  Harbour history and his real  estate agent sitting in his Advisory Planning Commission at  the same time as the flip was  getting okayed by the regional  board.  There's a few soreheads  around who might quibble that  Gordon never found his conscience after until the million-  dollar rezoning deal was safely  sealed and delivered, but as  Gordon pointed out in a full-  page ad in his favourite local  paper last week, the people who  disagree with the way he  operates are nothing more than  a "vocal minority."  The last time I heard that line  Richard Nixon was using it to  throw critics off his trail during  the Watergate coverup.  Gordon's taking of my advice  shows he is not beyond help,  but there are still two questions  he must answer before he can  get this critic off his trail. One  is, why did he put Howatt and  Alexander on his APC in the  first place? The second is, why  did he remove them?  Answer those two questions  satisfactorily, Gordon, and people like me will be relieved to  stop asking them.  W.L. White  s_r%n  'Vision* herbicide "myopic  Editor:  Dear readers I submit to you  an unsolicited proposal that if  the Ministry of Forests (MOF)  truly believes that the herbicide  'Vision' also known as 'Roundup', is safe, let's have them  prove it. The wise foresters can  do so by non-lethal dose, say  perhaps only one ounce mixed  with their favourite beer, or well  water for those who oppose the  toxic .effects of alcohol.  .q ., A toast to the rest of us non-  str listing souls. What do you say  boys and girls?  - The pseudonym 'vision'  should be prefixed by 'myopic',  to be more representative of the  type of resource managers that  prescribe it. The MOF maintains this toxin remains in the  environment for only six months. Where do they think it goes  after that? Just 'poof and it  vanishes.  No, the compound breaks  down, so it no longer resembles  its former self but is now only a  collection of singularly toxic  chemicals building up in our environment. But hey, no problem, the normal review process  has been followed. Feel  assured?  I don't trust the normal  review process. This is the same  assurance given the residents of  every now-polluted environment. That is what got us all into this mess (pollution).  You can't eat the prawns  from Howe Sound. Areas  around Prince Rupert are closed  to prawn fisheries. The soil in  False Creek is contaminated.  Lead fall-out from automobile  exhaust contaminates the soil  everywhere. All because of the  normal review process.  One of the undesirable (non-  crop) species being controlled  by this process is the human  race.  Families in the area affected  by the application of this product should not settle for  anything less than no spraying  at all. If we are going to have a  safe environment for our  children and future generations  this type of practice must be  stopped.  When are the ministries going  to realize that it's not an 80 year  growth cycle of forest crops we  need but a sustained yield and a  clean, safe environment. Healthy forests require a diversity of  plant species not a build-up of  toxins in soils and water tables.  So what do you say Mr.  Grechner and Mr. Hawry and  all of your superiors in the  MOF, let's have a public toast  to the Petraschuks, in good  faith, to their health.  John P. MacDonald  Support for Petraschuk felt  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Honourable Dave Parker  Minister of Forests  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  I write this letter in support of  Robi Petraschuk and her family, who are protesting logging  and herbicide spraying in the  vicinity of a creek that supplies  drinking water to her and her  neighbours in Pender Harbour.  I am concerned that if Ms  Petraschuk's water rights are  denied, then the rights of all of  us are in danger.  Soil erosion caused by the  clear-cut logging done on the  'Misery Mile' site has greatly  ���diminished both the quality and  the quantity of water supplied  by the creek and the recent  spraying of the herbicide 'Vision' is a threat to the health of  every person drinking the water.  Having 40 years experience as  an engineer, I can clearly see  that the geography and climate  of the area should have made it  obvious to the Ministry of  Forests that logging would  seriously harm the water supply.  Because of high rainfall and  the 70 per cent grade on the site,  erosion of the already-thin layer  of topsoil is rapid. Removal of  the tree roots as a retaining  agent further accelerates the  process.  Although the Ministry of  Forests insists that the herbicide  'Vision' is "safe", using it near  a drinking water supply seems  very dangerous. With insufficient topsoil to absorb the toxic  chemical   it   can   only   run  downhill into the creek and concentrate in the water. Will the  Ministry of Forests wait until  someone dies to decide that putting toxic substances into drinking water is wrong?  I regret that I voted for this  insensitive government that we  now have, and the destruction  of Ms Petraschuk's creek as a  water supply has convinced me  that I will support a more sensitive political party in the next  election.  Gus Provencher  Goat raffle still on  Editor:  While I normally would not  air Chamber misunderstandings  in the editor's columns of the  local press, I feel it politic to respond to the letter from Gail  Huggins of Seabreeze Saanens,  regarding the Sechelt and  District Chamber of Commerce's Goat Raffle.  The idea of a Goat Raffle  originated as a fun way to raise  funds for the Chamber. From  the beginning it was  understood, and printed on the  tickets, that the winner of the  goat would have to provide a  Petition not legal  Editor:  Our "Save the Park" meeting with Mayor and council  went well. They took the petition as a point of interest as it  was not a legal petition.  We presented 733 names of  voterd," 259 children's names  and 91 names from the Sechelt  Indian Band. I did not realize  that a legal petition consists of:  signature-printed name-street  address-phone number.  The best thing to do now to  "Save our Park" is to lobby our  aldermen. We voted them in to  speak for us (we employ them  as well as the mayor) - phone  them - write to them - let them  know how you feel about this.  They vote on this on November  1, 1989.  At least $25,000 of our tax  payers' money is going to pay  for a private lawn bowling club  in our Hackett Park. It will be  private membership only and  there is going to be an age limit.  Hackett Park will no longer be a  public park.  Say "No" to lawn bowling in  Hackett Park. Call your  aldermen and mayor today  -phone 885-1986 now.  Georgina Sager  Sechelt  good home for the animal.  I know Gail cares a great deal  about her goats and when she  questioned me about the kind of  home the goat would go to I  eagerly suggested she be the  judge. Also, I understand Gail's  concern for the goat as I was  raised on a farm and we not only had goats as farm animals but  I had goats as pets. Neither the  Chamber nor I would see the  animal go to a home where it  would not be cared for.  All of this aside, the  Chamber is still having the raffle and we invite the community  to join in and have some fun  with it. In the spirit of the raffle  I am purchasing tickets in my  father's name, and I hope he  wins. I know he will provide a  good home because he knows,  enjoys and respects farm  animals.

Chatelech grads  offer apologies  The Chatelech graduation  class of 1990 has offered its.  sincere apologies to District of  Sechelt Council for a recent incident of vandalism to Kin-  nickinick Park.  But grad class president  Allison Crosby told council at  its Wednesday meeting, her  class was unable to accept full  responsiblity for the vandalism  which occurred during a party  over the Labour Day weekend.  She said the responsibility lies  with other non-grads who were  present at the time.  In total, damages to park  property and a landscaping  machine came to $1400. The  $100 compensation does not include damages to the contractor's equipment, which was also  paid by the students.  -Viiiiii  ��� ����i��-��ti"��ji.7  REMEMBER:  If you're going to  gamble with your  SEPTIC TANK  a flush  is better  than a  I full house.

Sechelt Mayor Tom Meredith  called the action "a good expression of the responsibility of  the 1990 grad class." Alderman  Dave Wells congratulated the  class calling it "a very adult-  type move."  Asked what the grad class  would do to prevent future vandalism at grad parties, Crosby  said her class had agreed that  henceforth such functions  would be chaperoned.  Grants for  sewage and  water  A recent study by consulting  engineers Dayton & Knight  Limited proposes a thorough  update be undertaken for both  Gibsons water and sewer  systems in 1990. Towards that  end, Gibsons Council voted last  week to apply for provincial  grants to cover a study of both  systems to the amount of $5000  per utility.  The funds are available  through revenue-sharing funds,  Clerk Administrator Lorraine  Goddard said.  She plans to have the grant  applications in by November 30  and hopes to receive the outcome of them by the end of  March.

According to a report made  by Barry Mountain of the BC  Forestry Service at Wednesday's FAC meeting, the  Ministry of Parks is not interested in acquiring the land  because it is located in the  SCRD's watershed. And while  the SCRD supports the Ministry  of Forests maintaining the area  for recreational use, it does so  under the condition of con-,  tinued water quality.  "Some at the meeting felt the  integrity of the water quality of  Chapman and Edwards Lake  should be a priority," Moim-  tian said. But he acknowledged  the high resource value of the  area adding, "there were letters  from various groups, the  Western Canada Wilderness  Committee, for example, in  favour of integrated resource  management."  Apparently there were also  some concerns, Mountain said,  in regards to outside influences  from Vancouver-based organizations. "Some felt the plans  should be local," he said.  Citing the dangers of opening  the area up to too many recrea-  tional enthusiasts, FAC  member Fred Gazeley said:  "With international and national coverage, our little haven  becomes the focus. There will  be concerns about the water in  the watershed, the SCRD might  overreact and then severely  restrict entry to the area."  Mountain said it was important to define the boundaries of  the area in question and "take  inventory of the relevant  forests, lakes, alpine areas,  etc."  "We need to find out what's  there," he said.    ''  The figures Mountain quoted  at the FAC meeting were: 54 per  cent of the 5600 hectares in  question is alpine area, 24 per  cent is ESA (environmental sensitive area), three; per cent is  lakes and approximately 1.3 per  cent is harvestable;timber.  He said he hopes to have a  visual quality study and a report  of a landscape analysis of the  area for the next proposed  meeting of the relevant parties  in early December.  FAC member Dave Bakewell  expressed grave concerns over  the opening up of a watershed  for recreational use. With a lot  of people entering the watershed, he said, "to offset the  danger of disease you have to  pour chlorine into the water.  Everybody from here to Gibsons, will be complaining his;  goldfish are dying."  Bakewell was especially concerned with the potential water  polluting properties of all-  terrain vehicles. It was suggested the next meeting include  a member of the health board  and of a water management  board to discuss these problems.  Economic Development Officer Bill Moore suggested the  limiting of the park for winter  use only might alleviate some of  the mentioned problems as  would keeping the hiking trails  away from the watershed lakes.  What to do with PCB's  "The problem with PCBs is  where do you take them?" said  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore at last week's  Forestry Advisory Committee  meeting.  During his report on the progress being made in the Hillside  Industrial Park development,  Moore was asked tb comment  on the continuing saga of the six  drums containing PCBs belonging to Construction Aggregates  which is presently on the  Hillside project's land. It was an  issue that had been raised by  CBC news, for one, last week.  The PCB-contaminated material is in six drums in a confined area, Moore said, and Construction Aggregates have  "posted a pretty stiff bond with  the Ministry of Crown Lands"  so is anxious to dispose of the  problem "as soon as possible".  The initial plan was to move  the PCBs to a location near Victoria but apparently that has  fallen through.  t  "The problem is there is no  where to take them, contain  them or destroy them," Moore  told the Coast News.  According to Moore, the environmental impact study of  Hillside's conceptual design will  be completed by the end of October and in the middle of the  month there is to be a "think  tank", Moore said, to come up  with solutions to any concerns  raised by the environmental  consultants which could  perhaps lead to some modification of the plans.
