 !lffiLfiprWWmwvi*]jWirw*lVluW*V^UltiHttWI'W  ntmrj*>  iff-  mm  m  ���  8ii  ja��y!:  J-egisIative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  by Harold Blaine  The Sechelt and Gibsons  areas of the Sunshine Coast  qualify for free telephone calling to Vancouver.  Details and information on  proposed rates should be ready  by the end of March in advance  of a telephone bill plebiscite of  the Sunshine Coast area from  Sechelt east to Port Mellon.  So said B.C. Tel last week in  a press release issued to this  newspaper in response to last  week's front page banner story  reporting a Canadian Radio-  television and Telecommunica-  I 89.8  nous %_*��.i��~ssion (CRTC) decision which opens the way for  free calling from this area to  Vancouver.  The Pender Harbour and Eg-  mont area of the Sunshine  Coast peninsula unfortunately  don't qualify for free calling to  Vancouver because their telephone exchange centre is  beyond the 40 mile limit from  the Vancouver centre.  The CRTC decision in December established the 40 mile  limit.  But actually, Pender  Harbour-Egmont areas should  be able to benefit separately  from the CRTC by applying for  a free calling zone with Sechelt-  Gibsons. This would eliminate  the present long distance extra  charge between the Pender Harbour 883 exchange and the  Sechelt-Gibsons 885 and 886 exchanges.  It should be possible to have  a Sunshine Coast free calling  area established too.  "You have to hand it to B.C.  Tel for getting back so  quickly," said Gibsons  economic development committeeman Scott Bleackley whose  been active in ��� studying the  CRTC extended area decision.  He was told of the B.C. Tel announcement.  Committeeman Bleackley  wasn't prepared at this point to  advocate a plebiscite position.  "The committee will certainly  discuss it at its next meeting  Thursday. From just talking to  people generally, I find they  have been really positive in their  response to it," he said.  "Anytime we have more options available, it's a good  thing. I think it's good they've  come back with that, all the way  up to Sechelt."  Larraine Code, B.C. Tel  public   affairs   administrator,  said in her press release last  week, "B.C. Tel indicates that  Sechelt, Gibsons and Port  Mellon telephone exchanges  have sufficient call volume (to  Vancouver) to qualify for a  plebiscite on extended area  telephone calling to the Vancouver exchange. The three exchanges are also within the required 40 mile distance to be  eligible.  "This means that plebiscites  will be held at some time in the  future to allow local telephone  subscribers to vote on whether  or not they wish to have extended area calling to the Vancouver  exchange. A majority of customers would need to vote for the  extended area calling for it to be  implemented."  Public affairs administrator  Code said the plebiscite will be  on the basis of one vote per  telephone. Rates are based prj  the number of telephones in a  free calling area. Rates are  therefore relatively low in the  Gibsons, Port Mellon and  Sechelt areas.  The rates would go up. The  amount isn't kown now. More  will be known by the end of  March, said Code.

A recommendation was  brought to the District 46 Public  School Board by the education  committee January 24, that,  subject to sufficient enrolment,  the superintendent be authorised to proceed with the planning  and implementation of the program.  But some trustees expressed  reservations oh certain aspects  of the plan. Handing over the  gavel, Chairman Maureen Clayton proposed an amendment to  the original motion. Her  amendment proposed that the  plan be also subject to an im  pact study on the regular program, as well as on availability  . of transportation and availability of space.  "Part of my concern;" said  Clayton, "is the impact on the  English program. One of the  reasons I wanted the amendment added was because I think  it important to see what that  does to a school like Davis Bay,  for instance.  "Would there be problems  with transportation and space,  and would there be enough  children left for an English  class?"  Trustee Al Lloyd also raised  questions oh the availability of  classrooms, teachers and money  for the program. "Would we,"  he asked, "be creating expectations we are not able to fulfill?"  Discussing   the   Elementary  French as a Second Language  program, District Superintendent Clifford Smith told the  board that a part-time teacher is  to be hired to plug the gap in  . that program.  Secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson told the board this  would cost $5000 from now til  the end of June.  Only $1800 of this would be  covered by the government  grant for French. The balance  would have to be scrounged  from other programs.  Discussing the situation for  September 1989, Smith cautioned, "We will be up against problems that it will not be easy to  overcome, even if we do throw  heaps of money at it. We do  have a problem of locating people with appropriate expertise.  "But I assure you, the situation will be better."  The committee to study the  feasibility of restructuring Gibsons boundaries is wrapping up  the first stage of its deliberations  after 18 months of work.  The committee voted unanimously last . Wednesday to  recommend to Gibsons council  that restructuring is economically feasible, that the area to be  considered include Area E,  Area F and the Town of Gibsons, and that a vote be held on  May 20, 1989.  If Gibsons council accepts the  recommendations, it is understood the committee will be asked to participate in public  meetings throughout the areas.  This will be to share the information they have accum-  mulated and explain the reper-  q. cussionss of restructuring on  various things such as" roads,  water systems^ etc. :  Throughout the past 18 months, the committee has met with  citizens' groups, individuals,  private' businessmen and community groups. To date they  have not met with officials from  the primary industrial operation  affected by the proposed  restructuring, Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper.  However, the company is  represented on the committee  by Harry Cargo.  A large part of last week's  meeting was taken up with  discussion of the exact area to  be considered for restructuring.  Barry Boulton presented the  committee with a position paper  stating 21 reasons why the area  to be considered should be Area  F and Gibsons.  Boulton pointed out that the  Elphinstone Electors' Association is strongly opposed to the  restructuring. It has waged an  ongoing battle to halt the study,  as has its elected representative  Jim Gurney, who sits on the  commitee.  Further, he stated, residents  in Area E have refused to meet  with the committee.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District, Boulton said, does not  interact in a positive way with  the Town of Gibsons and has  supported the campaign to stop  the study.  Regarding the pulp mill at  Port Mellon, Boulton reminded  the committee that the mill's  location within the regional  district allows a large portion of  the taxes it pays to go to Victoria and the, provincial government rather than being paid to  'this ,ar^; TJ^  counteredby: regional director  JimoGurney who said it 'all'  comes back to the district in  one form or another.  "It's a myth that the mill isn't  paying the same rate of taxes as  everyone else. They pay the  same rate that I do on my  home, except for services they  don't receive," Gurney said.  "If you're going to 'rip off  that tax base from the rest of  the Sunshine Coast, then it  shows what the problem is on  the Coast."  Boulton called the mill's tax  rate of 4.4 mils an "extremely  preferred position." He added  that the inevitable increase in  assessment of the expanded mill  will mean even more tax dollars  will be leaving the Coast.  The general conditions of  streets, ditching and street lights  within the town indicate the  division of revenue within local  governments and shows there is  insufficient funding under the  current structure, acording to  Boulton.  His motion was to eliminate  Area E from the area'recorhr  mended for restructuring.  Not only has there been  strong, ongoing opposition  from that area but, he pointed  out, Area E is an economic  liability to the rest of the lower  coast.  With Area E left out of the  restructured municipal district^  residents within the current  town would see an average  reduction of taxes of $438.  Residents in Area F would have  their average taxes reduced by ���  $157, he said.  The concept was challenged  by Wayne Rowe, who expressed  ���-���-- concern that' there be enoughs  votes outside the town to defeat:^  a referendum if such should be-  the will of the people.  Harry Cargo called the sugr  gestion, "quite deplorable"*  and "...a good tactic to divide  and conquer."  Mayor Diane Storm spoke of -  the concept of a community and  the division she sees due to -  fragmented government. When -  the vote was taken, Boulton had ;  no support. .;.;��'  Committee members, how-; ;  ever, were unanimous in their ���  feelings that the time for the-->  study was at an end. Chairman v  Jane Sorko braised them for -  their hard work over the months, and said she would be willing to, "hang in there until this:,\  is finished."  Sorko .will draft a letter to  council  with the committee's.;,  recommendations. . /  Anti-restructuring move  by Harold Blaine  Gibsons/Port Mellon Area  'F' regional director Jim  Gurney January 26 kept  pushing the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  to spend extra money on a voter  enumeration as a means of  fighting against the proposed  restructuring of Gibsons  municipality to form a larger  town.  Director Gurney at the  regular SCRD board meeting in  Sechelt asked for a progress  report on the enumeration plan  he'd previously convinced the  board to agree to.  Faced with Gurney's question, board chairman Peggy  Connor and administrator  Larry Jardine replied steps  hadn't been taken to undertake  the enumeration in Gibsons  Areas 'E' and 'F' because a major problem was encountered.  But neither the chairman nor  the administrator could  remember what the problem  was that was encountered during deliberations.  Administrator Jardine did  say it is the practice for regional  districts in the province to never  undertake regular enumerations  because the cost is horrendous.  Instead, the voter lists are  brought up to date during the  regular courts of revision.  Gurney thinks a new enumeration of eligible municipal  voters will get a number of  absentee property owners on the  various area voter lists. Since  property owners get a vote in  each area in a municipal vote  regardless of whether or not  they live there, and thus could  get several votes each in a  restructuring plebiscite, Gurney  thinks this will be to the advantage of those opposing restructuring.  Gurney thinks property  owners will be opposed.  ' 'We begin to see what is really behind this (restructuring).  It's an expansion of the tax base  (to get taxes from the now tax-  free Port Mellon pulp mill),"  said Gurney.  "There's a real intent, at least  by some individuals, to >  municipalize that tax base. It>*  (restructuring) will change the'^  nature of that area forever.  "We need an enumeration^;.  It's a very important issue.

Those are the words of a fairly well known show  business song. But unfortunately those words apparently  have become applicable for real in post-war Canada, particularly in the last decade.  About one in five Canadians now lives in poverty.  Canadian children are getting the worst of it. (See the column on today's poverty on this page.)  Here on the Sunshine Coast, in this province, in this  country charity isn't dying. But it certainly is sick.  This while the governing social and economic structure  of Canada is becoming harsher and harsher or on more  and more people.  For some reason the attributes of caring and kindness,  consideration and compassion, are becoming less popular  in our culture. No longer is charity by individuals, corporations and governments as kindly viewed as it used to  be.  On the surface, today, people actually seem to be more  caring. With great gusto they worry about all sorts of bad  things, and fight hard against them.  It comes as a further shock to learn that the economic  and social policies of our governments are steadily growing  harder on more and more of the poorest of our people,  harder than they were in the time of our parents and  grandparents.  Why are the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia and  Canada being meaner and meaner to the poor and  helpless? Why do Canadians seem to be caring less and less  about the suffering of more and more poverty-stricken  people, particularly children?  These are questions people here in Pender Harbour, Eg-  mont, Sechelt, Gibsons, Port Mellon, indeed all the people  of the Sunshine Coast, might well ponder upon.  It would seem that perhaps without knowing about it,  we have become less aware of the plight of the unfortunate  ones around us. Perhaps the changes in society have done  this thing.  This may be the reason various groups concerned with  families and children are gathering together to give a  public warning of the poverty situation. This may be why a  new organization called the Canadian Centre for Philanthropy has had to appear with an advertising campaign  warning the citizenry about the sorry state of charity in this  country.  Surely it is time for governments, corporations, and individuals here on the Sunshine Coast, across the province  and everywhere in the country, *to do a better job when it  comes to being charitable. Think on it!  <v  .���%  ,��*������  from ��w file* of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Shirley Vader, the woman credited with bringing the  Pender Harbour Swimming Pool into reality, was  honoured by 40 friends and associates at a  smorgasbord dinner at the Jolly Roger Inn.  George Hewison, secretary-treasurer of the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers Union, at the Sechelt  Seniors Hall warned the industry faced virtual extinction due to legislation contemplated by the federal  government.  A public information meeting about the proposed  Gibsons Marina filled the town council chambers to the  doors.  Coast Mountain Aquasource Ltd. at a Sunshine  Coast Regional District board meeting presented a  lease proposal for the Hotham Sound foreshore. The  purpose was to provide water rights for bulk loading of  vessels carrying fresh water for export.  The SCRD sent a letter to the highways department  protesting inadequate snow removal in the Pender Harbour area, particularly on routes leading to fire and ambulance stations.  10 YEARS AGO  RCMP were on the alert throughout the Sunshine  Coast for an escaped convicted murderer. Extreme  precautions were taken due to threats made by the man  to take revenge against witnesses who had testified  against him. He had been awaiting sentencing for the  murder of a local man, Billy Black.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons/Port Mellon area luckily were not included in  the weather system which gave the area from Seaview  Cemetery right through to Powell River and beyond up  to a foot of snow in places.  30 YEARS AGO  A resident of Jervis Inlet for the past 50 years, Steve  Johnson, travelled to Pender Harbour last weekend. It  was his first time away from the head of Jervis in 17  years.  The Welcome Beach Community Hall rang with merriment and mirth on the night of a birthday party held for  Mr. A.

Mainstream Canada  Most Quebeckers  want English signs  by Ann M. Smith  It would appear from recent  events in the province of  Quebec that the prickly issue of  French majority vs English  minority rights is no closer to  reaching a compromise than it  was 10, 20, or even 100 years  ago.  Here is a brief rundown of  the latest series of events. In  mid-December, the Supreme  Court of Canada struck down  several key aspects of Quebec's  language law, Bill 101. (Among  other things, this controversial'  piece of legislation banned the  use of English or other  languages on public and commercial signs in the province).  Quebec Premier Robert  Bourassa responded by negating  the Supreme Court's decision  and, instead, introduced legislation that would require French-  only signs outdoors while allowing French plus a second  language on signs indoors.  Bourassa was constitutionally  sanctioned to override both the  Quebec and federal charters of  rights and freedom by invoking  the sq-called 'notwithstanding'  clauses in the charters, a provision guaranteed to the province  under former Prime Minister  Pierre Trudeau's revamped constitution.  Trudeau's decision to empower Quebec with the notwithstanding clause was dubbed  a political time bomb by many  constitutional experts seven  years ago and, unfortunately,  hindsight has proved the  naysayers absolutely correct.  In fairness to Bourassa, the  Bill 101 issue - a legacy from  former Parti Quebecois Premier  Rene Levesque - was a non-win  situation from day one.  Defenders of Bill 101 say the  right to ban English from signs  in the province is at the heart  and soul of their struggle to  preserve their French culture.  Opponents, on the other  hand, say the bill denies their  rights as a minority inside the  province of Quebec.  One of the less vocal groups  throughout the most recent  storm of controversy has been  the very group that will be the  most affected by Bourassa's  decision: small and medium sized retailers in the province.  And, according to a series of  public opinion polls on the subject, an awful lot of people  don't agree with the new legislation.  For example, the Canadian  Federation of Independent  Business, whose membership  approximates the demographics  of Quebec (80 per cent) francophone, 15 per cent anglophone  and five per cent of neither  French nor English mother  tongue), found after surveying a  portion of its members in that  province, that 85 per cent ol  respondents agreed that French  should be obligatory in Quebec,  but that English should be  allowed on signs.  Michel Decary, CFIB's director general in Quebec, says that  although very few Federation  members have a need to use  English on store signs, those  merchants in English majority  areas of the province would like  to have the choice of adding a  second language.  And in another poll, Gallup  found that 85 per cent of Canadians, including 61 per cent in  Quebec, felt that bilingual commercial signs should be permitted in that province. These  results, along with similar  others, indicate that Bourrassa's  decision to appease as many  people as possible inside the  province may not be working.  How unfortunate for the  country, but particularly for  those living in Quebec that  another emotional language  storm has hit with full force. No  one is well served from all of  this.  * * * *  Editor's Note: Ann Smith  prepares this column for this  newspaper on behalf of the  Canadian Federation of Independent Business.  Canada's heart hardens  Child poverty climbs,  charity, incomes fall  by Harold Blaine  Poverty in this decade in  Canada is striking harder and  harder at more and more  children and their families. At  the same time, the nation and its  people are getting harder and  harder of heart.  Over the past two decades  Canadians have cut their charity  by 30 per cent. The level of  charity in Canada is only a third  of what it is in the United States  (on a per capita basis).  Canadian society, through its  governments, is getting meaner  and meaner to its children and  families as the 1980s unfold!  Those are the facts, according  to the Canadian Centre for  Philanthropy and to a child  poverty six-organization coalition led by the Vanier Institute  of the Family.  More than one million Canadian children live in poverty,  says the Vanier Institue coalition.  "That represents an increase  of 120,000 since 1980, despite a  drop in the child population.  The social and economic costs  of child poverty are  staggering," says a coalition  statement in the December issue  of the Vanier Institute's monthly publication Transition.  Senator David Croll, chairman of the former senate committee on poverty, the other  day, said in a public statement  that more than five million  Canadians lived in poverty in  1987. That was close to half a  million fewer than in 1986, not  because Canadian society was  kinder but rather because of a  boom in the economy, Senator  Croll said.  The child poverty coalition  says that between 1980 and  1986, the share of the total income going to the poorest 40  per cent of Canadian families  declined from 19.2 to 18.6 per  cent. The wealthiest 20 per cent  of Canadian families increased  their share of the national  wealth from 38.4 to 39.4 per  cent.  "Ending poverty among  Canadian children and providing adequate support to their  families are realistic goals.  Declining poverty rates among  Canada's elderly citizens  demonstrate what can happen  when governments are committed to change," says the coalition statement.  "Families with children have  not enjoyed the same level of  commitment in the past decade.  The value of benefits for  children and families has been  eroded, with the result that  more and more parents are having trouble fulfilling their  obligations to their children and  more children are sliding into  poverty."  "These trends run counter to  Canada's 40 year record of investing commitment to families  and children, a commitment to  stop the erosion of benefits, to  restore them (the benefits) to  their former value and to ensure  that all Canadian families have  the income needed to cover the  basic costs of raising children."  says the child poverty coalition.  The goal of the coalition is to  make family support and the  eradication of child poverty a  national goal.  "Canada has traditionally  placed high value on the contribution   of   parents   raising  \4  AS USA 3.

Programs of income  support and specific services  recognize that an investment in  children and their families is a  tangible way of investing in our  collective future..."  "It is time to renew our investment in children and their  families. It is time governments  at all levels renew their leadership on behalf of children and  their families.  "Above all, it is time all  Canadians insist that the risks to  children and their parents  caught in poverty are unacceptable, and must be significantly  reduced..." concludes the  Vanier Institute child poverty  coalition statement.  "Since 1980 and for a variety  of reasons, many of the income  gains made by families in the  previous 40 years have been  seriously eroded. The results are  evident in published figures on  poverty, family incomes and the  value of support provided by  governments."  "These figures show that the  incidence of poverty among  children was higher in 1986 than  in 1980, that family punphasing  power has deteriorated as the  real value of the minimum wage  has fallen and inflation has  taken its toll, and that the social  and tax benefits available to  families with children have  shrunk."

Yes,  earthquakes are nasty occurrences to be feared and here on  the Pacific rim we are subject to  earth movements.  It was in 1906, a year before I  was born, that there was the terrible earthquake and fire in San  Francisco, California. My family, living in the Slocan Valley,  30 miles from Nelson, B.C. felt  the shock of the quake in our  big log house.  Since then I have felt minor  tremors periodically. In 1926,  while studying to be a teacher at  the Victoria Normal School, I  awoke one night to find the  house shaking and the framed  pictures flapping against the  walls.  My landlady shouted,  "Never mind, we're safe." And  we were. It was a minor tremor,  a sort of adjustment of the  earth's crust to a changed position.  I experienced a tremor again  when I was a teacher in a Bur-  naby elementary school. I was  just about to enter the  principal's office one morning  to sign in, when the door opened by itself and the whole  building began to shudder.  In the classrooms the chalk  and blackboard brushes were all  over the floor. When the  children came, they all had  comical stories to tell.  CONGRATULATIONS!

Our science teacher explained  to them how the bedrock  beneath us floats upon a core of  molten rock at the centre of the  earth, that it is cracked into  plates and these plates move  periodically to respond to  pressures. He said an earth  tremor at least every five years is  desirable to ward off the danger  of a serious earthquake.  Since moving to my house 16  years ago we have had several of  these. The first was at one in the  morninp when I was awakened  by thre^ explosions.  I thought, "what fool is  blasting rock at this time of  night?" In the morning I heard  that we had had an earth  tremor.  One small pane of glass in my  living room was cracked and  another pane set in the concrete  wall of my basement also cracked. Later there was a tremor  with its epicentre in Sechelt but  no damage was done.  The most recent one happened in 1987 when I was a patient  in St. Mary's Hospital. At  breakfast one morning we heard  three explosions.  People asked why rock  blasting was permitted so near  the hospital, but an old man  told us it was a small earthquake. These tremors, apparently, act much like the  brake in your car which controls  the speed when necessary.  One big  dictator  affair  Editor:  Who says that things don't  move in cycles?

With mergers and takeovers,  we will eventually wind up with  brie big'institution that has control over our government and  ourselves.  Since the sick, the unemployed and the elderly do not  contribute to the making of profit, they, like chaff will be cast  aside.  Lloyd Fraser  Sechelt, B.C.  I believe it was about 10 years  ago there was a full scale earthquake in Alaska.  I am not worried about an  earthquake on our Sunshine  Coast and neither are my  neighbours. My house is built  on solid rock which my friend, a  geologist, assures me is quite  safe.  What we do have reason to  worry about is that old, decaying nuclear plant at Hanford,  Washington where the U.S.  produced the plutonium that  powered the bomb dropped on  Nagasaki in 1945.  Isabel Ralph  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  Editor:  The Driftwood Players would  like to express their thanks to  the audience which attended the  opening night performance of  'Something Different'. You  showed patience, tact and  understanding while we attempted to solve some technical problems.  You were obviously aware of  the many difficulties that have  to be surmounted each time we  put on a production in the  multi-purpose hall at Roberts  Creek.  As a community drama  group we are constantly growing, training new directors, actors and technical staff. As  president of the Driftwood  Players I am constantly amazed  at the fact that we're still performing after 20 years despite the  facilities in which we have to  perform!  Thank you, first nighters, we  really appreciated you, and, yes,  we did solve our problems!

Our final request in  the paper last fall for community funding resulted in a handful  of people donating.  We sincerely thank those people who gave, and appreciate  your support.  Our current account at the  Royal Bank is $1464. We have  exhausted all possible sources of  funds.  Our final disappointment  came this month when we  received a letter from Dr. Carl  Stroh of government alcohol  and drug programs informing  us there are no funds for us.  The Vancouver group was also  refused.  It surely does amaze us that  $137 million has been allotted  for drug and alcohol problems,  but we cannot get funds for a  program that works for teens.  Full page advertisements and  fancy brochures have their place  in awareness, but they do  nothing to help teens get sober  and stay sober.  We are pleased with the  number of teens who are choosing sobriety. They need their  own program here instead of  having to travel to Vancouver.  Most of these teens are in  grade 12. Their peer influence  will soon be lost to this community as they go their separate  Child poverty climbs  Continued from page 2  largest group of poor people in  Canada... With recent improvements -in the employment  picture, the rate of poverty  among children has begun to  fall gradually. But it remains  17.3 per cent higher than it was  in 1980."  "Nor were economic conditions the sole factor contributing to higher rates of  poverty among children in the  1980s. This is evident because  childless couples had a lower  poverty rate in 1986 than in  1980."  "By contrast, families with  children ran a greater risk of  poverty. Compared with  childless couples, families with  one or two children were twice  as likely to be poor, while  families with three children or  more were almost three times as  likely to be poor."  "Working families with  children are not immune to  poverty. One-half of all poor  children live in families where  the head of the family works  full time or part time. We must,  says the coalition, "look to  labour market factors to explain  why these families are poor:  - the minimum wage in all  provinces is too low to provide  incomes above the poverty line  for families with children;  - many Canadian families  have to rely on part time or  seasonal work to support their  families;  - two-thirds of Canada's  workers aren't unionized and  may not receive the additional  benefits won by organized  labour;  - women, often the sole support of their children, earn only  two-thirds of the wages men  earn."  Families with average incomes saw their purchasing  power decline. People earning  low incomes experienced equally serious income  deterioration."  "In 1975, workers earning  the minimum wage and supporting a spouse and child could  earn 81 per cent of a poverty  line income. They would have  to work 50 hours a week to raise  their income to the poverty  line."  "By 1986, there were 87  hours of work needed to achieve  a poverty line income; by then a  normal work week at the minimum wage generated only 46  per cent of the poverty line for  two adults and a child."  "Significant changes in  Canada's family benefits system  have reduced their support  value for all but a few families.  For example, taxes paid annually by a one-earner family with  two children and an income of  $20,000 will rise by 21 per cent  by 1990. The increase for a  similar family with $80,000 in  income will rise 3 per cent,"  says the child poverty coalition  statement.  "In some Canadian cities,  families with children are spending 40 to 70 per cent of their  incomes on housing. Disproportionately high housing costs iri  turn leave less money for food,  clothing and other necessities,  as evidenced by the increasing  number of Canadians turning to  food banks and other agencies  for their basic needs."  "The quality of life in today's  families, the developmental  prospects for children and  youth, and the social, educational and economic opportunities open to them are linked  closely to the nation's long term  interests..."  "Research has documented  the consequences of failing to  make the crucial investment in  families and children. Hardship, ill health and education  failure shape the lives of many  children growing up in  poverty...  Poverty has equally serious  effects on families. Poverty  creates stresses that compound  the already difficult task of raising children."  "Low-income parents run a  greater risk of encountering  problems that erode their  capacity to parent competently.  ways.  We have made the decision to  become inactive for a year, with  the hope that perhaps funds will  appear. If there is no community interest at the end of this  time, we will close for good and  donate the funds we have to  local alcohol and drug groups.  We will keep you informed at  the time.  We are thankful our community now has a much needed  Action counsellor. But this in  no way replaces the need for a  youth and parent drug program.  A teen program is much more  than counselling. It's a daily  place where teens can relate and  socialize with other sober teens.  Alcohol or drug abuse is a  serious problem with our youth.  It must not be= tolerated by  parents, schools or community.  Until  our  community  gets  serious about this, deaths and  family tragedy will continue.

I  ���v  I:!  S:  The Crimestoppers program  on the Sunshine Coast has proven a highly commendable  means of citizens co-operating  with the police in the investigation of crime.  Because information is given  anonymously, a citizen is quite  protected from reprisal or  scorn. His or her information  can, as has happened, lead to  stopping a rash of vandalism, or  in another instance, help in  resolving a case of attempted  murder.  All this makes for greater  peace and security in our communities. The program is supported solely by community  contribution, too.  The Crimestoppers committee wants everyone in the community to know about the program. To help newcomers to  our Sunshine Coast, as well as  residents, know about the  Crimestoppers program, a billboard has been erected near the  exit to the highway from the  ferry terminal.  The committee thanks all  those individual citizens and the  organizations who provided the  financial support for the program.

Membership is comprised of  people who care for victims of  Alzheimer's Disease (usually  husbands and wives). Other interested individuals also belong.  Meetings are once per month  on the last Tuesday at 1 pm, the  place varies.  Occasionally we have guests.  Often we talk together, trade information and heartaches, and  become friends," says member  Beverley Brand of RR1,  Redrooffs Road, Halfmoon  Bay.  "As a group we are lobbying  for a safe place on the Coast for  this forgotten group. People  with Alzheimer Dementia remain able to walk until near the  terminal stage of their disease.  "Right now, there is no safe  place for these people to live.  Shorncliffe and Kiwanis, the Intermediate Care Facilities, are  not permitted to lock their  doors.  "St. Mary's Totem Lodge is  extended care, where spon-  tanious walking isn't safe," says  member Brand.  "Several of our members  make faithful trips to the city to  visit spouses who no longer  remember them. These.people  have spent many years caring  for loved ones whose brain is  under attack.  "Yet they all agree that they  would cope better emotionally  if their spouse was at home.  "Also, in our membership  are people who care for their  spouses at home. As the disease  \Z?\Ji   oO.  progresses, the more child-like  the behaviour becomes.  "Often, like two year olds,  they become bored, need  distraction and constant attention. Imagine how exhausting  these sometimes angry, frustrated, adult size two year olds  can be.  "Here, on the Coast, assistance is provided by Home Support Services and the Adult Day  Care Program. They are excellent programs, both, but  their availability is restricted.  "We believe that these programs are a more cost effective  use of our health care funds  than institutionalization," says  Brand.  Keep part off the dollars you spend..,  Friendship Centre closing  The board of directors of the  Sechelt Friendship Centre is  sorry to announce the closure of  the centre/second hand store at  5538 Inlet Avenue, as of  February 28.  This action was necessitated  for various reasons. Mainly, the  rent increase from $450 to $800  per month on October 1, 1988;  lack of continuity of funding;  an $800 deficit in December  which   continues   to  increase;  and too much work for too few  volunteers.  The board is hoping to  reorganize and open another  centre under a different format  once it has continuous funding,  volunteers and a salaried coordinator in place.  "We wish to take this oppor-.  tunity to thank all the  volunteers, members and the  public who supported us in the  past," said a spokesperson.

Richard Shanks and Robert Joe work at the new computer at the Mom-Ay-Mon Nursery School They  were two of the children who helped raise $228.74 in a penny drive to purchase the Muppet software be  ing used.  ���Penny Fuller photo  ft-  TRKE  SHEERER  You work hard. You owe it to  yourself to protect as much of your  income as possible. There are many  legitimate ways to shelter your  income from taxes. We can show  you how to do it. Call us today.  How much do 22,874 pennies  weigh? Ask Lori Dixon, supervisor at the Mom-Ay-Mon  Nursery School in the Sechelt  Indian Government District.  They weigh 430 pounds and  take volunteers an entire day to  roll.  The $228.74 was the  children's contribution toward a  fundraising drive and was collected by the three and four year  olds in the space of four months. This was added to money  raised by industrious parents  and brought the total fundraising effort to $2,318.16.  Competition was stiff as the  three year olds (juniors) tried to  outdo the four year olds  (seniors) in the penny drive.  They won the race by a grand  total of 52 cents. Their reward,  apart from the equipment and  excursions paid for by the  money, was to have lunch  prepared for them by the  seniors.  The money which was collected during the four month  drive has been put toward buying swimming lessons for all 30  children who are registered at  the nursery school. Twenty  weeks of lessons were purchased  from the Pender Harbour  swimming pool, and for ten  weeks each, the junior and  senior class will spend half an  hour in lessons and half an hour  in play.  The money has also bought  special 'muppet' software for  the school's new computer. The  top-of-the-line Apple was purchased for the school by the  Sechelt Indian Band, the Friday  night  bingo and  the  Sunday  night bingo.  The software includes muppet learning keys, specially  designed for pre-schoolers and a  variety of colourful programs  designed to teach the children  the basics of colours, shapes,  numbers and letters.  Another $1000 is still left to  be spent, as yet on what is not  decided. Dixon attributes the  overwhelming success of the  fundraising effort to the hard  work and dedication of parents.  The bulk of the money was raised through bottle drives, car  washes, raffles and bake sales.

Roger Douglas, principal of  Halfmoon Bay school, has a  special request for some of the  older residents of the area. He ,  would like to know if there are  any elderly people who would  like to share knowledge with the  youngsters by coming along to  the school and sharing their  talent   or   interest   with   the /  youngsters.  FIRE DEPARTMENT  Due to a recent outbreak of  chimney fires in the area, our  local fire department volunteers  have once again warned  residents it's time to have their  chimney cleaned. Another  possible reason for the outbreaks is that with the weather  being so mild people are having  smouldering fires rather than  hot fires.  The smouldering builds up  the   combustion   which   then  breaks out into chimney fires.  CANVASSERS NEEDED  Once again it's time to get in  touch with Fay Hansen at  885-3575 if you are willing to  help out with canvassing for  funds for the B.C. Heart Fund  Drive.

Come out and appreciate the talent and hard  work of some of the people we  see every day.  by Larry Grafton  It's great to have members attend branch activities and functions. However, it is understandable that this can never be attained by all members.  To take the attitude that "I  can't attend so I won't join," is  certainly the wrong approach.  That is borne out by the fact  over 200 members have joined  our branch since the first of the  year.  The point I am trying to  make is that a strong seniors'  branch, which is no different  from any other strong organization, has more clout to withs  tand the whims of some senior  bodies of government, be it  federal or provincial, when a  large membership is behind it.  This of course applies to the  50 and over bracket. They are  relying on the present seniors'  organization to pave the way  for their future retirement,  maintain the beneficial programs now in place, and for  which the daily fight goes on by  seniors' organizations countrywide.  Flora Gardiner (885-5338) is  assisting our membership chairman Kay Mackenzie (885-3184)  again this year. Either of these  good ladies can  provide ap  plicants with membership ($5  per person) and a 1989 activity  sheet.  EVENING DINNER  The first special event on the  above mentioned sheet is a dinner February 4. At this late  date, Olive Marshall has arrived  back from her travels.  She advises that the menu will  be both beef and chicken stew.  If you are lucky you may even  end up with a dumpling.  It is my understanding Joan  Timms is the beef stew chef and  Olive herself will look after the  chicken stew. Sounds good!  Saturday night, February 4 at  6:30 pm. Cost is $6 per plate.

Wishes to Announce the Opening of the-  GIBSONS DENTAL CENTRE  817 Hwy. 101  (in the Medical Clinic complex)  As a precaution against the  spreading of dioxins and other  contaminants, Environment  Canada has instructed Western  Pulp Limited Partnership to  confine the dumping of dredged  waste from its Woodfibre mill  to the company's water lot  directly off shore.  Woodfibre is one of three  B.C. pulp mills singled out as a  source of dioxin contamination  that led to the closure of several  crab, shrimp and prawn fisheries on November 30.  Squamish council will let its  voice be heard about the dredged waste as well. It passed a motion to write to the federal and  provincial ministers of environment and the federal minister of  fisheries requesting "that no  further dredging be allowed by  Western Pulp Ltd. Partnership  of Squamish division until it is  determined that the dredging  and dumping will not further  contaminate Howe Sound."  Officials from the federal  Department of Fisheries and  Ministry of Environment made  the decision to confine Wood-  fibre's dumping area January  17 in consultation with Western  Pulp representatives, Hal  Nelson of Environment Canada's Conservation and Protection branch said.  Since 1978, Western Pulp has*  dumped dredged waste, made  up of silt, gravel and wood-  waste that has flowed out of  Mill Creek or collected in the  mill's log booming area, at.a ...  common dump site across  Howe Sound at Watts Point.  The Watts Point site, which was  established after the Ocean  Dumping Control Act came into effect in 1975, has been used  by many other local companies  including Empire Logging and  MacMillan Bloedel.  Western Pulp spokesman  Ramesh Maniar, whose name  was given as a contact in the  published notice of his company's intent to dump wastes,  said Woodfibre has been dumping at Watts Point "for years  and years."  He said he could not answer  any specific or technical question, but was merely answering  the phone "so lay people can  have a say because of the great  concern about the  environment."  Bill Rempel of Woodfibre  said dredging around the mill is  done once a year and will be  carried out only around the  mill's log pocket in 1989. The  dredgate will be composed  largely of log waste and  deadheads, he said.  He said he did not anticipate  any contaminants being found  in sediment deposited by Mill  Creek "because our outfall dif-  fuser is north of the creek.  "We'll just wait for the  results (of testing)," he said.  Squamish fishery officer Bert  Ionson, whose office helped bring about the dumping restrictions by taking its concerns  about possible contamination at  Watts Point to the Habitat  Management Division of  Fisheries, said uncertainty  about the properties of dioxins  led to the January 17 action.  "We're unsure how the dioxins will react, we're concerned  that we'll stir them up one place  and drop them off somewhere  else."  Rick Kussat of Environment  Canada said: "We're assuming  there might be some dioxins or  other contaminants in the sediment. The mill is doing some  testing around the mill and we  in the Environment Ministry  have asked for some testing of  the sediment. It's a precautionary measure."  Environment Canada officials have said, that the  ministry's test results may not  be finalized until as late as  March 31. Kussat said the  results would take time to obtain because at present only one  laboratory on the West Coast,  Seakem at Patricia Bay near  Victoria, has the capability to  conduct the needed tests.  "I think you can appreciate  that every mill on the coast is  sending samples there," he said.  Another testing laboratory is  scheduled to begin operation  within the next few months to  ease the burden on Seakem, and  both B.C. Research and  Analytical Services  Laboratories in Vancouver are  considering acquiring the  technology that would prepare  them to do testing for Environment Canada.  ionson said that the dredging  at Woodfibre has consistently  caused black, fibrous, moss-like  material to float to the surface,  both at the dredge site and at  the Watts Point dump site.  "It's that stuff that concerns  me, it seems to be the product  of the (pulp) washing process,  the same process that produces  dioxins and furans."  By requiring Woodfibre to  dump its waste in the direct  vicinity of the mill, any currently unidentified contaminants  can be confined to an area  where dioxins and furans are  already in the water column,  Ionson said. ,  "What's the point of dumping on land or at a dump site  where dioxins are not present?"  he said.  Nelson said the Woodfibre  waste will likely be dumped  about 200 metres from the  shoreline dredging area, deep  enough so the mill's docking  area will remain clear.       /  George    in    Gibsons  Swan poisoned  Joan Dickeson, who takes care of injured and sick wild  animals, was saddened that she had been unable to save a  trumpeter swan which was found dying at Wilson Creek  marsh.  At this time an autopsy had not been carried out, but Joan  is pretty sure that it met the same fate as did several of these  beautiful creatures on Vancouver Island. They suffered from  lead poisoning.  She had happier results treating a screech owl who got  himself trapped in a mort tank at a local fish farm. He was  rescued by an employee and delivered to Joan who gave him  (the owl - not the employee) an anesthetic and a good bath.  3 year Musical Ride  by George Cooper,-886-8520   ��� Lit���i ;   Constable Sherry Cdumont,  who has just been posted'to the  .^Gibsons   Detachment   of jthe;  k&CMP,,has spent the-past trjree^  ivyears oh duty with the Musical'  Ride.

This was when  the topic turned to the committee's relationship with Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper (HSPP).  , In referring to a memo that  HSPP president Bill Hughes,  had sent to employees, Sorko  said, "It should be made clear  that this committee has never  met with Mr. Hughes or discussed this issue with him. The  committee has not come to a  conclusion or made any recommendations to council. A document of this sort is very distressing."  1 The document is a four page  'memo' sent to the 477  employees of the pulp mill at  Port Mellon by Hughes, slamming the concept of restructuring.  In it, Hughes states, "The many  advocates of the proposal make  no secret of its intent; to provide  Gibsons with the Port Mellon  industrial tax base.  "To justify this action, the  proponents of restructuring  make the following 'points'.'  1) Gibsons has no industrial  tax base at present, no taxes to  residents and businesses are unfairly high.  2) HSPP currently pays a  level of property tax which is  unfairly low.  3) Trie employees who work  at the pulp mill live in Gibsons  or Areas E and F, so HSPP  should pay property taxes to  benefit these areas.  4) Gibsons provides services  which are enjoyed by residents  of SCRD Areas E and F and is  not fully compensated.  5) The mill has done nothing  for the community in the past."  In addressing the five points,  Hughes included a table of  municipalities and their residential tax rates which indicated, he  maintained, that the addition of  a major industrial tax base does  not seem to result in lower  municipal taxes.  He  admitted   Port   Mellon  pays lower taxes than other  mills in the province, and that  those taxes are paid to the provincial government rather than  the municipal government. But  he goes on to provide another  table which demonstrates the 84  per cent of the property taxes  currently paid by the mill are used to support local services and  schools.  A study conducted at the mill  indicates that '76 per cent of our  employees currently live in areas  to be included in the proposed  restructuring.' In his conclusion, Hughes suggests that "the  problem of services provided by  Gibsons for the benefit of  SCRD residents can continue to  be addressed through a formula  of financial compensation from  the SCRD."  In closing, Hughes wrote,  "personally, I see nothing to be  gained by our company nor by  coast residents if restructuring  should be implemented as proposed. The study should begin  again, this time with a mandate  to propose the best form of  government for all."  During discussion of the  memo, members of the committee at times became quite  agitated. Both Barry Boulton  and Jon McRae made references to the environmental  pollution Gibsons residents live  with as a result'of the mill's existence.  Chairman Sorko called the  document "very damaging to  the committee. Gibsons Mayor  Diane Strom was unusually  silent on the issue, stating that  members of council had met  with Mr. Hughes, but had not  discussed the restructuring  study at that time.  A vote at the end of the  restructuring committee  meeting will see the findings of  the committee and its recommendations brought to Gibsons  council. The committee is  recommending that a referendum be held May 20 to include  Area E and F in a newly structured municipal district.  Area  E  representative Jim  Gurney suggested it still needs  to be established if HSPP will  be considered part of the  restructured area. That, he told  the Coast News, will be a decision made by the minister of  municipal affairs.  Our children have a  great Mure-together.  The source of this optimism is the teachings of Baha'u'llah,'  Founder of the Bahi'i' Faith and the Messenger of Cod for this age.  He set down in His writings "that -which is conducive to the advancement of mankind and to the reconstruction of the world."  His teachings describe the distressing events of our time ai the  birth pangs of a world society where ail people will live together as  one family.They also provide a plan for bringing about world unity,  and Baha'j's all over the world are putting that plan into practice.  Our children are part of it. We think they've got a great future  -together.  886-9294  fc&i^  HELP THE FOOD BANK!  wm      SHOE!

Gardening  has always been a popular hobby.  Through countless years  Mother Nature has managed to  survive ever-changing conditions, and keep a balance.  We the home gardeners must  keep a finger on the pulse, so to  speak, of all the changes that affect us and are occurring in  research studies, misuse of  chemicals harmful to our environment and gardens, and  especially to our health.  It's a well-known fact that  your own produce picked from  your own garden is superior in  freshness and taste.  It's important to nurture that  urge to grow, and acquire a  'green thumb' and encourage  the children too.  Good friable soil is first, with  sound drainage, with added  compost or humus as it's called,  and well matured barnyard  manure, will give the plants or  seeds in the right sunny location  a chance to produce healthy  plants.

Its mandate was to examine and report to Council with recommendations relating to the economic well-being of the community. The committee has  come to the conclusion that the most important current economic issue facing the  Town is the possible re-structuring into a new District Municipality.

Helen becomes yet another  skeleton, admittedly a rather  well-fleshed one, in Herb's  already crowded closet.  Over the next few months  Herb shuttles back and forth  between the east and west  coasts, leading his gang from  one successful job to another in  most of the major cities.  In October 1919 they rifle  $50,000 from a bank vault in  Alexandria, Kentucky. Less  than a month later they strike  the Southern Railway office  safe in Cincinnati and are  rewarded with $33,000.  It seems to Herb that mobility is the key to avoiding apprehension and indeed his strike  by-night, keep on the move tactics have the police totally confounded. One new wrinkle, suggested by Little Benny, is to  leave out of town newspapers  around the scene of each caper.  This serves both to misdirect the  authorities and to absolve  employees of complicity.  During this period Herb  discovers a hitherto unsuspected  property of his potent explosive:  ...my explosive is of the same  consistency as honey and almost  as agreeable to the taste... It is  also a powerful stimulant.  He soon develops a taste for  the stimulating substance:  ...on the night of the raid I had  a bad case of the shakes...  kneeling before the safe that  was my target... I dipped a  toothpick into my... solution  and ran it across my tongue. It  had become somewhat of a  habit with me and I got the  usual bang.  In  a moment  I  became calm and confident.  It amazes Herb how different  real life safecracking is from the  exploits of such fictional  cracksmen as Jimmy Valentine  and Raffles. These blithe  burglars of the printed page  ostensibly opened the boxes by  'feel', sandpapering their  fingertips and listening to the  tumblers click.  Such feats are purely the product of inventive mystery  writers, the oldtimers in the  gang'swear that it can't be done.  But one night on a job in  Chicago, Herb gets a chance to  mystify his associates and mix  fiction with reality.  The gang has staged a midnight invasion on the main office of a large meatpacking concern and Herb is making a  preliminary examination of the  safe with a flashlight. Joe Bert-  sch, Little Benny, Cox, Lou and  Big Jack Peer are idling about,  waiting for the boss to go into  action.  Suddenly Herb shuts his tool  bag and pushes it aside.  "Boys, I'm going to try the  fingertip method," he announces.  Big Jack Peer gives a snort of  disbelief. "You gotta be fooling."  "Permit me to convince you  that I am not," Herb insists  calmly. He revolves the dial  slowly, his head docked in deep  concentration as he listens for  the clicks of the tumblers. He  gives the dial a final turn and  the ponderous door swings  open.  "There you are, gentlemen,"  Herb announces with a smile.  The men gape at the open  safe in utter amazement.  "Well, I'll be doggoned" explodes Joe Bertsch.

To be continued.  Poison concert  by Rose Nicholson  I have never been a fan df|  .electrqriic music. I have; always|^  associated it with rock bands!;  and Hammond organs at roller"  skating rinks.  But I have been converted.  The use of electronic keyboards  at the pre-Christmas performance of the Messiah and the  Raad violin played by Arthur  Poison at last week's Countryside Concert made me realise  the modern magic of electronic  sound can indeed compete with  traditional instruments and produce a richness of sound seldom  heard outside major concert  halls. ?  For places like the Sunshine  Coast where we sometimes have  to make do with the inadequate;  acoustics of school gyms, it  means we can enjoy the kind of  musical treats often available  only to city dwellers.  Of course, it is important to  remember any instrument, traditional or modern, is only as  good as the person who is playing it. Arthur Poison and  Melinda Coffey are topnotch  performers.  The capacity audience at this  concert enjoyed everything  from early composers like Jean  Marie Leclair and Beethoven  played on Baroque and Guad-  agnini violins, to modern composers like Claude Boiling and  Arthur Poison, played on the  electronic Raad violin.  There is an interesting  sidelight to this season's Countryside Concerts. Alan Crane  reports that George Zukerman  of Overture Concerts told him  the Sunshine Coast is beginning  to be regarded by performers as  a prestigious location for con-  Certs because of the'enthusiastic  and knowledgeable audiences.  Crane pointed out much of  the credit for this, particularly  with respect to violin performances, must go to Katie  Angermeyer. She has been  teaching the Suzuki violin  classes here for some time.  I have only one complaint.  Couldn't they have bowed to  traditionalism just a little and  made the Raad look more like a  Strad?  Yes, I know, I'm being picky.  It is the sound that matters, isn't  it?

Then in 1985 in Gibsons it all  started.  The jacket of the success  album of Bentall and the Legendary Hearts says it was the song  'Something To Live For' that  starred it all in a downtown  Vancouver rehearsal room. The  jacket story of the record is in  parjt as follows:  j'ttt was a song which reminded, Barney Bentall and his partner! Gary Fraser, that rock and  roil | and songwriting were what  they lived for, as much as it was  written for those weary souls  who'd suddenly found renewed  strength, courage and reason to  push ahead.  ; "And it was a song that  revived the Legendary Hearts'  belief in themselves. Suddenly  Barney knew what he and the  group had to do.  "The band came into its own  once we gave up this seach for  the winning, acceptable formula, he says, acknowledging  the paranoia that is always felt  by^ a natural-born achiever.  ^Once I let go of that, I  began .to :relax and then things  started happening. We became  a b&nd that people wanted to  listen to. The band found itself  BARNEY BENTALL  BACK IN GIBSONS  naturally; it was a development  of getting out and playing as  much as we could.  "Before Legendary Hearts,  there was a song-writing team.  Barney and Gary Fraser have  known each other since they  were boys growing up in  Calgary. The first product of  their partnership began appearing on tape 12 years ago and, inevitably, their love of the music  of Bob Dylan, The Rolling  Stones, Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen and the bands of the  late 70's new wave inspired  Barney to take the name Brandon Wolf and embark on a  long, obstacle-filled path as a  bandleader.  "But none of that is as important as the friends he made  along the way: Drummer Jack  Guppy (who has stuck by  Barney for eight years), guitarist  Colin Nairne (six years), bassist  Barry Muir (five) and  keyboards player Cam Bowman  (two).  "When Barney sent Brandon  into retirement in 1983, he, Jack  and Colin resorted to working  Vancouver clubs as the  Revengers, a group which laced  a broad assortment of 60's  cover versions with the new  songs Barney and Gary were  writing. The two year experiment enabled them to buy the  eight track recording clobber on  which every demo up to and including 'Something To Live  For' was recordeds  '?Immediately,J ��'Something  To Live For' became a stage  favourite with the newly  christened   Legendary  Hearts'  TUESDAY, JANUARY 31  | 7:00 PM  School Board Speaks Out  School Board trustee Carol  Adams introduces this month's  show.

Barney says today that  the song and video were made  as a motivater at a low point in  the band's career, yet it portrayed the group honestly and  admirably, reflecting not only  the Legendary Hearts' spirit but  positive attitude.  "Ultimately, the video was  seen by Bernie Finkelstein and  Epic Records who became in  February, 1987. They, too, had  been swayed by the strength of  the band and its music; impressed by Barney's humility and  conviction.  "One year later, the first  album by Barney Bentall and  the Legendary Hearts isn't so  much the next chapter as it is a  prologue.  "This album is like a collection of our best songs to this  point, which is why Gary and I  had such a hard time coming up  with a title for it, Barney says,  smiling. My favourite thing still  is writing songs and I'm already  longing to do our second  album.  "The debut was produced by  David Tickle, the extraordinary  sound engineer who first caught  people's ears with his production for Split Enz and who left  Rod Stewart in mid-session to  get on a plane to Vancouver and  then drive 96 kilometres to a  nightclub in Chilliwack in order  to hear Barney for himself.  "Tickle likewise was captivated by the Legendary  Hearts' unpretentious, warmblooded music. That  November, he and girlfriend,  actress Valentina Vargas, found  themselves holed up in a motel  in Gibsons Landing, rehearsing  with the group in a little  nightclub during the week and  mixing their live sound on the  weekends.  "Part of the spirit of the  album comes from the three  weeks we spent together in Gib  sons, Barney states. We'd  rehearse all day, go back to the  cabins and make our own dinners. David really started to  change our approach as a band.  For instance, he got Barry and  Jack thinking as a rhythm section.  "I'm really glad we got to  work with him because he's a  fairly inflammatory guy and we  in the band have a fairly  creative temperament, too, so  the environment got pretty hot.  The best thing was that he let us  perform as a band, which was  important to us. In doing that I  think he cleared a little space for  us, a niche which is ours alone.

If the famous Doc Inglis house has ever held any fascination for you, your chance to at last get in and explore at least  some of it has presented itself in the form of the Cornerstone  Teahouse. My own interest in heritage buildings goes back a  long way, so I made the required reservation to enjoy tea and  scones (rumoured to be the best), and get a glimpse of this  house which is such a prominent landmark in the lower  village of Gibsons.  The forward room of the house is the space being used for  the guests of the teahouse. It's dark wood wainscoting and  tasteful decorating lend a quiet elegance to the setting. The  menu offerings are teas of every variety, decafmated coffee,  and scones served with fresh whipped cream and an assortment of home-made jams. And the rumours are true, the proprietor does bake the best scones I've ever tasted. I am told  also that if you wish (given sufficient notice), she will prepare  any delicacy your heart desires.  If you think that you may be excluded from this elegant ex-,  perience because of your kids, think again. For the convenience of Moms with families, there's a fully licensed daycare downstairs which will look after your child while you enjoy a quiet break at a reasonable charge.  Go ahead and give the Teahouse a call. You owe yourself a  treat of this style.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

Coast News, January 30,1989  Kt.  atrimonial dance  by Penny Fuller  "My husband's a Leo and  I'm a Capricorn. Are we compatible?" That kind of question, with only an adjustment of  the signs involved is thrown at  an astrologer so often that it can  really bring out the devil in you.  Occasionally I get an overwhelming urge to look the  querent straight in the eye and  respond, "Give it up, lady.  Divorce him right now!"  Let's see where she goes with  that one.  Whether or not you're compatible with someone else is  something only you know.  Astrology can tell you where the  stresses and challenges will occur in a given relationship, but  not how you, or your partner  will handle them.  It will also describe how you  give to each other, but not  whether that giving is valued.  Significantly, it is almost  always women who will call and  ask to have their partner's chart  done up, "so I can figure out  what's going on with him."  I always suggest that they ask  him instead. An astrologer who  does a third party reading has  the same ethical standards as a  therapist who analyzes someone  from what other people say of  their behaviour.  This desire, on the part of  many women, to understand  what's happening within the  relationship from their partner's  perspective, is rooted in the  belief that, "if I can fix him, I  can fix the relationship." It just  doesn't work that way.  Intimate, one-to-one relation  ships are like a dance. When  you first know each other you  stumble around until you get a  sense of the other's movements  and rhythms.  Over time, the two of you set  a pattern of twirls and dips, until it becomes second nature to  you.  The only way to change the  pattern of the dance, once it's  become fixed, is to change your  own dance steps. There's no  doubt this can cause your partner some consternation as  he/she stumbles around trying  to figure out what you're doing.  Eventually they will either  adapt their steps or leave the  dance floor (and the relationship) in a huff.  The point is that you only  have control over what you do  in a relationship, you have no  control over the other person's  response. When you start doing  and being what feels right to  you, apart from what your partner may say or do, it can stir up  some emotional responses that  require some consideration.  However, in spite of inevitable resistance to change,  realize that when you insist on  your right to be more honestly  yourself and fulfill your own  needs, you give your partner  permission to try some new  dance steps of his/her own.  That can be disconcerting too.  But if you love and respect  each other, you can find a very  fulfilling relationship that never  gets stagnant because each of  you is allowed to explore new  parts of yourself, making for an  ever-changing dance of real  beauty.

Shown with their trophy are: coach Sean Vanstrepen,  captain Rod Bodmer, assistant captain Gord Pollock, Wayne Sac-  co, Pat Cromie and sponsor's wife Nadia Van Egmond.  ���Vera Elliott photo  Ifi  ��&'��'  Roberts   Creek   Oldtimers  . ..have won the Lucky Lager Division Pacific Cup this year. The  ij cup "is considered the biggest  win possible in Canada in over  35 hockey.  Taking this championship is a  major accomplishment for a  teamr that just started up this  yeai;i  The Roberts Creek Oldtimers  sponsored by Len  VanEgmond's Lighthouse Pub  travelled to Victoria the  weekend of January 19 to play  in Canada's largest Oldtimer  Tournament - the Pacific Cup.  In total, there were 96 teams  registered this year and the  Lighthouse Flashers were plac-.  ed in the Lucky Lager Division.  Labatt's is the primary sponsor of the tournament and all  the divisions are named after  their products. The Lucky Division consisted of four groups of  four teams.  Each team played the other  three teams in its group to determine which team advanced to  the semi-finals.  The Flashers' first opposition  Friday were from 100 Mile  House. This team was a finalist  two years ago.  They were unable to repel a  sustained attack and eventually  lost 3-2. The Flashers dominated more than the score indicates.  s Next up Friday, were the Spring Chickens from the North  Shore. The Flashers controlled  most of the play but led only 1-0  after the first period.  The Chickens wilted in the second period and eventually lost  5-1. The defensive pairs of Rod  Bodmer and Wayne Sacco, and  Randi Rudland and George  Croteau narrowly missed helping goalie Ed Berinstein to the  shutout.  On Saturday, last up in the  Round Robin were the Lyn-  wood Inn Beavers from North  Vancouver. This team lacked  the gentlemanly conduct of  most Oldtimer teams and their  early penalties resulted in a  quick Flashers lead.  More penalties to the Beavers  and a relentless Flashers attack  secured a 6-1 victory with Steve  Feenstra and Gord Ross shining  on offense.  Their 3-0 record secured a  spot in the semi-final on Sunday  morning against Bailey's  Brewsters who topped their  group with a 2 win and I tie  record. This matchup resulted  in the most exciting action of  the tournament to date.  Though the Brewsters scored  quickly, they also took several  penalties which allowed the  Flashers to tie the game and  roll-up a 4-1 lead with Pat  Legrandeur leading the scoring.  At that time, the Flashers ran  into penalty problems and saw  their lead erased with a solid  gutsy effort by the Brewsters.  mers win Pacific Cup  r  Though Kevin Haynes gave  the Flashers a lead with only  three minutes remaining, once  again the Baileys team responded and the end of regulation  time saw a 5-5 tie. A five minute  sudden death overtime failed to  decide the game, mostly due to  amazing acrobatics by goalie  Berinstein.  The game was to be decided  by hockey's most exciting play,  a shoot-out where five players  from each team take a penalty  shot. The second shooter for the  Flashers was Gord Pollock who  scored on a quick high shot to  the goalie's glove side and this  proved to be the lone goal with  goalie Berinstein making five  scintillating saves for a shootout shutout.  The scene was now set for the  Divisonal Championship game  against the Anchorage Old-  timers from Alaska who had  defeated Williams Lake 3-2 in  the other semi-final. It was not  expected to equal the excitement  of the semi-final yet it turned into one of the highlights of the  tournament.  The first period was scoreless  though both teams had excellent  opportunties. Not until seven  minutes of the) final period did.  the Alaskans ttke trie lead, but =  at the halfway mark of the  period the Flashers tied the  score and took the lead with  eight minutes left only to have  Anchorage reply with seven  minutes left.  The see-saw action continued  until with 3:21 left. Jim Gray .  scored the apparent winner on a  bouncing pass from Feenstra  and Pollock. The Flashers could  taste victory until with 54  seconds remaining the Alaskans  scored their third goal and overtime seemed imminent.  However, aggressive fore-  checking caused an Anchorage  defenceman to make a blind  pass which was intercepted by  Gray and the Flashers had two  players alone against the  goalies. Gray elected not to pass  to his wider open linemate and  twinkled the twine with a high  shot over the goalie's blocker  and only 34 seconds left.  Refusing to quit the Alaskans  had a face-off in the Roberts  Creek end with only 14 seconds  remaining. They had one more  scoring chance before Haynes  picked up a loose puck and  wristed it into the empty net for  a 5-3 win.  It was Oldtimers Hockey at  its finest. In 40 minutes of stop  time hockey there wasn't a  single penalty and the shaking  of hands at the conclusion of  the game resulted in an outpouring of respect between the  two teams.  Unsung heroes for the  Flashers included Pat Cromie  and Brett McGillivray but it was  an outstanding team effort of  which all the players should be  Local minors play  by Sonja Koskinen  An annual pilgrimage was  \l made to Powell River to attend  ; the Powell River Minor Hockey  Jamboree.

Coast News, January 30,1989  by Soccer Sam  The second half of our soccer  season started up on Saturday,  January 21. The weather cooperated and I'm sure everyone  involved with youth soccer  thought it was about time to get  started playing soccer again.  We only have seven games to  play in this half of our schedule  before our year-end tournament. The last game in this half  is on March 11 and then our  year-end tournament is on  March 18.  Now for how the games turned out on Saturday...  In the 8 and 9 year old division: Sechelt Pharmasave beat  GBS by a score of 3-0. The  other game in this age group  saw Sechelt Band beat Roberts  Creek by a score of 4-1.

The outcome of this game was a  bit of a surprise.  Sechelt Band beat Sechelt  Pharmasave by a score of 3-1.  The reason for saying the outcome was a surprise is that  Sechelt Pharmasave has only  lost one other game all year.  It should be interesting to  watch the outcome of the rest of  the games between these two  teams.  rent-a-wreck  TEAM STANDINGS  8 & 9 YEAR OLDS  WL  Sechelt Pharmasave 6 0  GBS 0  Leif Mjanes l  Sechelt Band 3  Shop Easy 5  10 & 11 YEAR OLDS  WL  Sechelt Pharmasave 8 2  GBS 4 6  Shop Easy 2 7  Sechelt Band 6 5  CHECK OUR  LOW RATES  886-9717  Time To  WINTERIZE  Your Boat & R.V.  winter storage  on fenced premises  power & water on site  i�� HARBOUR VIEW MARINJE  ^A \ \   \���vvvvvvvvv  110       Hwy 101    UitlSOn  BOAT HAULING  ,886-2233  VTT  APPLIANCE SERVICES ���  ��� CONCRETE SERVICES ���  FINANCIAL' SERVICES  GEN.

Recent complaints about  three break-ins and frequent  tire-squealing have led to discussion at both an SCRD meeting  and an Area A Planning Committee meeting earlier this  month about some kind of permanent police presence in  Pender Harbour.  We have an auxiliary RCMP  constable, Dennis Gamble. But  his authority is limited mainly to  assisting the Sechelt RCMP.  Several years ago we had a  resident officer, a breathalizer  unit in the old forestry station,  and a police boat with a crew of  three men. The officer moved,  as did the breathalizer and the  police boat.  Now it takes a minimum of  20 minutes for the Sechelt  RCMP to attend a call in  Pender Harbour. That's probably about the same time it  takes the Vancouver police to  respond to all but the most  serious crime in their city.  Long-time residents say there  have always been kids (the  assumption is that they're kids)  doing donuts and laying rubber  on the IGA parking lot and  Misery Mile. There also have  always been occasional break-  ins and thefts, they say.  In the past Pender Harbour  had a reputation for being a  'lawless community' and one  that did its own policing in its  own way. The people were  typically, unco-operative with  the authorities."'  Stories tell of residents hiding  criminals from the police until  the search was called off, then  evicting the villains from the  area.  Today most residents are indifferent about permanent  police protection, balancing a  little extra security (that won't  guarantee an end to crime) with  yet another tax increase.  Whether or not you want an  RCMP station and staff in  Pender Harbour, the probability of it happening is almost nil.  The decision will be based on  statistics of population and  crime. We don't have enough of  either.  SYMPHONY TRIPS  The Pender Harbour Music  Society is now organizing bus  trips to the Orpheum Theatre in  Vancouver.  A price of about $30 includes  transportation, ferry fare, and  good seats in the Orpheum. A  bus will leave Madeira Park at  11 am and return at 5:30 pm,  and you should contact Ann  Barker at 883-2689 to reserve  your seat.  Buses will be provided by the  Music Society to a series of  three performances for  children. Tickets not including  ferry fare, for each date are $25  for parents, $15 for children.  SWAP MEET  At the Swap Meet on  February 5, the Sunshine Coast  Peace Group will be selling the  coffee and refreshments.

',/  In Gibsons, the Girl Guides  acted as Santa's helpers in the  Sunnycrest Mall during  December. In Sechelt, all units  entertained the public with  Christmas carols at Trail Bay  Mall on December 22.  Units helped to brighten the  holidays at Kiwanis Intermediate Care Home, Shorn-  cliffe Intermediate Care Unit  and Totem Lodge Extended  Care Unit. Some groups made  colourful placemats, interesting  centrepieces, special treats and  provided evenings of entertainment.  Service in the home, in the  community and in the world is  an important part of the  Guiding program at all levels.  Helpers for Sechelt and Wilson  Creek Brownie Packs are needed immediately.

Atlantic Phuiikin $49 I  The season for Carnival is  almost here. Carnival is a midwinter festival where Monsieur  Bonhomme spreads good cheer  and everyone has fun.  The Sunshine Coast Parents  for French have planned events  to celebrate Carnival. On  March 10, there will be a 'family skate' at the arena.  March 16 there will be a lot of  'jigging and spooning' at the  Carnival Square Dance at the  Sechelt Indian Band Hall. There  will be live music and a potluck  supper at the dance.  Monsieur Bonhomme himself is rumored to make an appearance. Monsieur Bonhomme  is also expected to make a surprise appearance at Gibsons and  Sechelt Elementary Schools  during Carnival and leave a  treat for each child in the entire  school. (A real good-time fella'  this M. Bonhomme.)  At the January 23 meeting  the membership of the Sunshine  Coast Parents for French voted  in favour of making an annual  gift of some French resource  material to each of the dual  crack schools in the district. The  first such presentation will be at  Lbe first February school board  meeting.  Quality French/English dictionaries of about $60 each will  be given to the Sechelt and Gibsons Elementary Schools. These  books will be available to the  entire school population for  use, and form part of the  regular library collection.
