 SH**WBJ��rtlH**��^��r  T  !  : ; ���  IVtSiV  w  ft-  I  is  5 J8*    ^J^  Plans for municipal  complex proceeding  First prize for Parade Float went to Chris Danroth of Gramma's Pub for this imaginative, if  somewhat startling logging machine conversion. ���Vem Elliott photo  The plans to develop Block 7,  'next to the Trail Bay Mall, are  proceeding rapidly, Mayor Tom  Meredith   told   a  press  con-  ���'��� ferehce last week. Sechelt Coun-  cil voted unanimously at an in-  camera session to sell a 100 foot  strip of the block to Trail Bay  Developments and Gilligan's  Pub for $300,000.  There will be a restrictive  covenant placed on the land  preventing any structure to be  y built. The strip will be used for  ( parking only, the mayor said.  The money from the sale constitutes 55 per cent of the acquisition   cost   of  the  entire  ��� parcel two and a half years ago.  "It was a good price, comparable to other sales in the  area," he said.  The proceeds from the sale  will be added to funding which  is expected from the GO BC  program, and money from the  sale of the property where the  library is currently located. That  combination of funds, says  Meredith, will come very close  to paying for a new municipal  hall/library/historical society  complex on the remaining seven  acres.  Council will be meeting with  architects next week to review  their concepts for development  of Block 7. That will include a  leisure centre with a 25 metre  pool and a building to house the  13 provincial government offices that are currently scattered  around the area. A separate  building for a provincial courthouse is also a part of their vision for the site.  The leisure centre complex,  Meredith explained, would have  to go to referendum. But he expects that "...down the road,  the revenue we'll obtain from  the government offices will go a  long way to offset the projected  losses of a leisure centre." The  extent of those losses have not  yet been calculated.  The project, he said, has the  support of Minister of State  Elwood Veitch. "He's seen the  economies that have happened  in Nanaimo and Terrace,"  Meredith explained. Those two  municipalities have built similar  structures which contain the  local offices of provincial agencies.  Other sources of revenue  from the property and its  development include the tax  revenues from the strip just  sold, and the potential use of  the swimming pool for provincial competitions. The pools at  Pender Harbour and Gibsons  are not regulation size, he  pointed out.  The new municipal hall will  be between 7000 and 8000  square feet, more than double  their current space. That will include a much larger council  chambers which, Meredith  stated, would allow the council  meetings to be televised. They  could also be used for public  hearings.  The library will also have  more space. The recommended  space for a library serving a  population the size of Sechelt is  5000 square feet, but currently  they make do with 1800 square  feet.  Anti-restructuring brochure's  veracity Is challenged  by Penny Fuller  Amid cheers and tears, Roxanne Wiseman, Miss Leeward  Clothing Group, is crowned Miss Gibsons 1989 at Saturday  night's gala pageant held in Elphinstone Secondary School. First  and second princesses were Bonnie Stewart, Miss Seaview Plaza,  and Jennifer Girard, Miss Gibsons Fire Department, respectively.  As well as wearing the Cavalcade Queen's crown this year, Roxanne was awarded the Miss Congeniality Trophy. More  Cavalcade photos on Page 6. ���Ellen Frith photo  Reeves' dismissal still  exercising Gibsons Council  An information pamphlet on  the proposed Gibsons restructuring was distributed to  residents of Areas E and F and  > Gibsons ^last^^kYTlv: pai":*  phlet wa$ compiled oy "interested citizeri^of Areas E, ,F:  and Gibsons" but regional  directors John Shaske and,.Jim  Gurney confirmed last week  that they had been consulted  about the information presented in it.  The brochure begins with the  statement, "Most of the justification for restructure centres  around incorporation of the industrial tax base in Howe  Sound." The information offered deals specifically with that  issue.  Of the seven points raised in  the literature, at least one is  completely inaccurate, according to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs. The  brochure states, "The ratio of  industrial to residential tax is  controlled by the provincial  government..." and the wording implies that if the industries are located within  municipal boundaries the same  conditions apply.  Derrick Trimmer of the  organizational policy branch of  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs told the Coast News that  the industrial tax rate in rural  areas is set by the provincial  government and has recently  reached a 2:1 ratio. However,  within municipalities, municipal  Gibsons Council has voted to  hold an 'informal inquiry' into  the firing of Public Works  Superintendent Skip Reeves and  the management of municipal  staff. Additionally, they will be  hiring a management consultant  to evaluate the entire staff structure of the current administration.  For a third time in as many  meetings, Gibsons Council  Chambers were packed last  Tuesday, with people concerned  over the recent firing. The antics  at Gibsons Council have  become so interesting that the  meeting was even attended by  former regional director Ian  Vaughn from Area A.  "I'm just interested," he  responded to a query about his  purpose at the meeting.  During the meeting, Alder  man Ken Collins' motion to  have a formal inquiry failed to  receive the support it required,  with Alderman Gerry Dixon absent and Alderman John Reynolds and Mayor Strom opposed.  While aldermen were attempting to word the defeated motion, members of the gallery  volunteered some suggestions,  which prompted Strom to interrupt proceedings and call for a  show of hands from the audience of how many people lived within the town's boundaries.  The interruption provided an  opportunity for local businessman D'Arcy Burk to rise and  assure council that not everyone  present was there in support of  Reeves. He also offered his advice on the legal implications of  discussing the issue in public  which, he said, could cost the  town a lot of money.  Strom told the crowd that a  meeting would be arranged between Skip Reeves and his  lawyer and Lorraine Goddard  and the town's lawyers, which  would be followed by an informal inquiry by council.  She was asked repeatedly to  explain the purpose of the  meeting but became irate under  the persistent questioning and  refused to say any more. Strom  told the gallery a statement  would be issued by council after  the meetings took place.  It was further agreed by  council that an outside  evaluator should be hired to  look at the entire question of  staff and administration.  governments   set   their   own  {residential  and  industrial tax  rate and have no ratio restrictions imposed on them by the  \ provincial government.  In further explaining the im-  ,, plications ,of tax revenues y  should the restructuring of '  boundaries take place, Trimmer  contradicted statements made  by Area E Director Jim Gurney.  While the industry is located in  a rural area, he said, the taxes  paid by those industries are paid  to the province and put into  general revenue.  Gurney has stated that if the  industries in Howe Sound pay  their taxes to a municipal  government, they will be taken  away from the rest of the  regional district.  However, according to Trimmer, there is no relationship  between what is paid in taxes by  industries located in rural areas  and the money that the provincial government sends back to  an area in grants. The industrial  taxes are paid into general  revenue. Planning grants, water  and sewer grants, educational  funding etc. are all paid to the  region from different programs  and are not contingent in any  way on the monies raised from  the area in industrial taxes.  If the industries located in  Howe Sound pay industrial  taxes to a municipality, that will  have no impact on the money  that comes back to the region  from the provincial government, he said.  Because there is no relationship between the taxes paid by  the Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper Mill and the provincial  revenues that come back to the  region, a second point in the  brochure could be considered  misleading. It states, "The new  mill will pay five times as much  tax as it presently does. Its taxes  per tonne, without restructure,  will be at the provincial average.  Those taxes will reduce residential taxes on the whole coast."  Further on, it states, "Additional taxes from the mill will  reduce residential taxes without  restructure."  This again implies that there  is a direct relationship between  the taxes paid to the province,  by the mill, which would have  an impact dn residential tax  rates. There is no such relationship, Trimmer maintains. Often  in fact, he suggested, municipalities are able to access more  money in provincial cost sharing programs than regional  districts.  Trimmer   also  volunteered  some information that 'might  be helpful'. He explained that  although municipalities set the  residential and industrial tax  rate for their jurisdiction, it is  possible when boundaries are  being expanded, for an industry  to negotiate a proyihci ally controlled ceiling on their tax rate  for a few yearsY Y  President of Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper, Bill Hughes,  told the Coast News that he  hadn't seen the brochure. In  commenting on the section  stating, "During tough times  large companies like Oji usually  close mills like Port Mellon and  serve their markets through  mills with lower labour costs,"  he stated that there is an  understanding between Oji and  HSPP which would deal with  that problem.  Once the Port Mellon mill is  fully operational and producing  Japanese quality newsprint, any  downtime caused by a decline in ���  the market will be: shared between HSPP'and 'the^i|>laht in ���  Japan. The machine here, he  explained, is not meant to  operate as a 'swing machine' used only when the market is  good.  The restructuring committee  is also busy preparing a  brochure which members plan  to have distributed before a  public information meeting is  held.  ft the inside  Bermuda holiday P.2  Cavalcade tradition P. 2  Port Mellon reunion ..

One of the strengths of the Sea Cavalcade is its  respect for tradition. Every year from the events involving the Queen Candidates which lead up to the pageant,  through the boisterous parade winding down the hill into the incomparable beauty of Gibsons Harbour, to end  with the water sports on Sunday, the celebration follows  a predictable and cherished path.  That respect for tradition includes an acknowledgement of the work that has been traditionally done in the  area. The water sports are essentially boom men at play,  as Sechelt's Timber Days used to feature in its second  day of loggers at play.  A friend was sad that he was going to have to miss the  Cavalcade because friends from Quebec were arriving  and he had to show them the West Coast. We asked  what could be more uniquely West Coast than the Sunday's water sports at Gibsons Sea Cavalcade. It is a  wonderful day of unhurried and good natured competition in a number of events which can't be seen anywhere  else in the world.  Sometimes it seems sad that Sechelt moved away  from its Timber Days theme; the logger sports seemed  like the other side of a pair of matching bookends which  beautifully illustrated the history of the Coast.  A couple of small suggestions: could not the Teen  Dance have been scheduled on the wharf on Saturday  night. There was this lovely summer night of virtually  full moon and a band just aching to play and the  teenagers were up in the Winter Club having their ear  drums, no doubt, assaulted by the echoes. If some  adults joined the dance on the wharf surely that would  have been a positive for all concerned. Second: would it  not have been appropriate to have the Queen chosen in  time to take her place of honour during the parade?  These quibbles aside, again the charm and integrity of  the Sea Cavalcade was matched by gorgeous weather,  full sunshine and a still sea under the full moon after  dark. Congratulations to all who worked to make it  possible.  5 YEARS AGO  The Progressive Conservative candidate Michael  Hicks and incumbant MP^Ray Skelly are off and running  hard in the summer election of 1984 in this riding while  the Liberals are scurrying to choose a candidate before  the end of the month.  A near capacity crowd met in Roberts Creek Hall last  Thursday night to discuss the use of herbicides on the  Sunshine Coast. A steering committee of volunteers  was formed to determine and organize means of protesting and preventing herbicides use in this area.  Twelve thousand Coho salmon fry prematurely  escaped into the ocean last Tuesday night when vandals cut a hole in a new pen at the Sechelt Indian Band  Fish Hatchery in Porpoise Bay.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons' Planner Rob Buchan turns down the position of planner for the Village of Sechelt dispite the encouragement of Gibsons Council. "I remain unconvinced," Buchan said, "despite assurances that a conflict of  interest situation would not arise." Sechelt had suggested an inter-municipal planning committee with two  members from each council.  Environment Minister Rate Mair refuses to table all  reports on the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power line despite  pressure from Don Lockstead. Last week residents of  the Sunshine Coast travelled to Victoria to protest the  controversial power line to Vancouver Island.  Canadian Forest Products pulp mill at Port Mellon is  closed for two days in a strike over local issues.  Logging will go ahead in the famed Chatterbox Falls  area of Princess Louisa Inlet despite regional board appeals to the contrary.  20 YEARS AGO  Coast News staff enjoyed a well-earned holiday.  30 YEARS AGO  Coast News staff enjoyed a well-earned holdiay.  40 YEARS AGO  'Batt' Mclntyre, newly elected Liberal member for this  riding, says that he has every hope that the Port Mellon  road from Gibsons would be started this fall.  Volunteer firemen at the Sechelt Fire Department  have laid the floor of the new club room and plan to  erect the walls and roof at the next practice.

Bermuda is a good place to  contemplate the heavens from  because it has a small sky cupped over the island like the  dome of a planetarium. During  the day clouds scuttle across it  pushed by sea breezes and at  night the stars appear to whizz,  around from point to point as if  time itself was on fast forward.  At the height of summer, the  night air in Bermuda is thick  and heavy and even when the  moon is full, a soft fat globe in  the sky reflecting as much silver  light as it can, the earth appears  dark. Senses are smotheredihy  heavy smells, by high-pitched  chirpings of whistling frogs and  insect life and by smooth sea-  breezes which tease wifWy  momentary relief from the heat. ��� Y  The ocean, on summer nights  in Bermuda, reflects the activity  of the night sky and is also live  with its own bright pinpoints of  light from tiny phosphorescent  creatures of the sea. They  crackle when you swim among  them and, when it's dark  enough, you can see them swirling around you like a thousand  million fireflies. The water  temperature  is,  of course,  a  decadent 86 degrees F. (Bermuda has not gone metric.)  So to swim in the Bermuda  sea at night with the stars  above, the harbour lights blinking softly all around the horizon  and with the phosphorescence  in the water is as close to experiencing a flying visit through  the galaxy as it is~ possible to do  - minus a space ship.  I visit Bermuda with my  family at least once a year as my  husband comes from there,  born and bred on the island and  able to trace his ancestry back  to Henry and Mary Frith, a  Scots Presbyterian couple who  joined the original wave of settlement to the colony in 1614.  There are now a considerable  -jnumber of Friths in Bermuda as  "well as numerous families of  Frith-SmithsYahd Srtrith-Friths  (no kidding).  Yet, in spite of all these visits,  Bermuda still seems to me to be  a pretend place, the scale of it  too small to be real and when  I'm there, I feel like a giant  poised to crush much of it if I  stir too vigourously or too fast,  ergo, I spend a lot of time on  the porch watching the sky.  Bermuda is not, as many people believe, part of the West Indies. Instead it lies, all 21 square  miles of it, approximately 500  miles off Cape Hatteras, North  Carolina, and enjoys a semi-  tropical climate made possioie  by the Gulf Stream.  The island is also the apex of  the infamous "Bermuda  Triangle" and during last year's  visit, I met a woman whose son  had recently disappeared when  he was out sailing one day. "He  was just gone," she told me, explaining that an extensive search  of every square inch of ocean  for miles around failed to find  even a sliver of his boat. "Just  gone," she said.  The Bermudians, both black  and white, are extremely British  in many ways and it is this  seemingly foreign 'quaintness'  just 500 miles off the US, along  with the beaches, of course, and  the duty free shopping, which  brings in American tourists by  the shiploads. At this time of  year there are always at least  two cruise ships in dock in  Hamilton Harbour at any one  time along with thousands of  eager visitors from the Eastern  Seaboard turning as bright a  pink as Bermuda's famous coral  sands.  During this trip I met an interesting American at a party we  attended to celebrate the full  moon and which took place on  one of the small private islands  in the harbour. The American,  who spoke with a drawl, was a  remarkably young lieutenant-  colonel in the American Army  working in the Pentagon. "Gorbachev," he told me, pointing  his finger as I tend to imagine  all army colonels doing, "is the  worse thing to happen to the  United States Army!"  Anyway, inspite of their obvious differences to much of the  rest of the wdrld, Bermudians  do one thing which all Canadians at least should be able to  relate to. They punctuate their  speech with a sound - not 'eh?',  in this case, but 'um'. It's a  sound which, roughly  translated, means 'I'm  thinking.'  "Vut you vant for dessert," a  Bermudian waiter is likely to  ask, (Bermudians also have the -ng  tendency to switch Vs' for  'wV and vice:versa or, 'urn'  wice-wersa) "wanilla ice cream,  um, vine triffle, um-um, or,  um-um-um cassawa pie?"  And yes, Bermudians do  wear Bermuda shorts. The  typical business suit comprises  jacket, shirt, tie and trousers cut  off just above the knee. It  looks, if I may be so bold,  ridiculous but, they tell me it's  cool. That's 'cool' as in  temperature not style, um-um.  In a nutshell  My ostrich story  by S. Nutter  More and more over the past  year or so we are getting an increasingly familiar sequence on  the television screen. We see  some shots about an ordinary  small ranch or farm. The rancher and his wife come out and  go about their chores. This goes  on just long enough for us to  wonder why we are being  treated to this lovingly detailed  coverage of the dead ordinary,  when the rancher and his wife  get 'over to the old corral, go  'cluck-cluck' or whatever, and  on come the ostrich. It is an  ostrich farm in Alberta or  Texas. Surprise!  I don't mind looking at  ostrich. I'd rather look at  ostrich on the screen than fish  or most anchorpersons. The  ostrich is a truly individual  result of god knows what went  on in nature. You cannot look  at an ostrich without surmise,  and with his bald old head on  high, he looks at us with what  can only be astonishment.  And here we have him in the  old corral, being fattened. People are going to eat him and his  hide will walk around as boots.  No surmise about that. Sad,  perhaps, sadder in that I've seen  the ostrich in his native habitat,  running as only he can run, over  the African desert.  It was really only a glimpse,  lasting under an hour, and I was  bouncing up and down in the  back of a Jeep, in fruitless pursuit, and, to come quite clean,  firing at him with a regulation  US Army Lee Enfield .303.  This is, of course, a war  story, and like most war stories  it is necessary to go back and fill  in the why's and wherefores.  The place was Tindouf, out  in the Sahara and, if you're flying, about halfway between  Casablanca and Dakar. During  the war it was a gas refueling  stop, manned by a handful of  US Air Force ground crew, by  this time bored almost to extinction. There was also a French  Foreign fort, said to be the one  featured in P.C. Wren's Beau  Geste.  We were in an amphibious  flying boat, a Canso *A\ and  camouflaged in tasty whites and  greens and greys for work  against U-boats in the North  Atlantic. They had never seen  an aircraft like this in this place  before. We were not expected.  Our Air Marshall at HQ back in  Halifax did not expect us to be  there, and indeed at that time  didn't know that we were.  We had become stuck on a  new runway in the Azores, the  first and only one there. It was  too short and ended in a hill,  presenting an equation working  out that if we packed on enough  gas to get back to Newfoundland we couldn't quite  safely get over the hill.  Therefore the southern route:  Casablanca, Tindouf, Dakar,  Brazil etc.  We had been in Newfoundland two years, flying far  enough out over the Atlantic, 20  hours a flight, but always ending up 'back home'. We  wanted to see something of the  world, and maybe we did play  around a bit with this equation.  Anyway, off we took for  Casablanca and the game was  afoot.  The second leg, out over the  desert to Tindouf, presented the  First of what might be a problem; but navigating over desert  should be no different to  navigating over sea. Tindouf  itself was just a dot on the map.  No one had described the place  and when we got to where I  thought it was, there was  nothing at all to be seen.  It was getting on evening, the  sun was low, and long shadows  stretched across the sands. We  circled. The crew were giving  me little looks (I was  navigating); after all there was  the sun going down and there  was the well known limitless  Sahara.  Finally, with the shift of  light, we saw the fort, a man-  made flat place (run-way), and  the cleft in the desert at the foot  of which there was the oasis.  They seemed pleased enough  to see us. Fed us, cleared away  briskly, and brought out the  cards. Oh oh I thought. Rare  thing for them perhaps: fresh  blood; and sure enough the  game went on long into the  morning (I had been lucky I  thought. It was only later that I  realized they had been bleeding  away my good Canadian bucks  while I stuffed my jeans with  Moroccan franks - useless in  Dakar and unheard of in  Brazil).  After breakfast we almost got  away but they were insistent on  showing us the sport of the  place; and really you did feel  sorry for these fellows stuck out  here for the length maybe of a  war. One felt that one would  never kick about Newfoundland  again.  They put us, four of us who  didn't feel we needed sleep,  each into the back of a Jeep,  two of them in front. The  passenger in front had a rifle,  we were each given rifles, and in  single file we drove up the track  from the oasis and but onto the  desert. I remember a fleeting  hope we were not off on some  kind of Bedouin raid, but they  were slyly keeping silent, it was  to be a surprise.  Once up on top we speeded  up and were fair bounding  along over the hardened dunes,  pellmell and still it seemed in no  particular direction. They there  was a cry from the front:  ���ostrich' and we all converged,  and there they were, a flock I  . .'��� Please turn to page 7  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper 3ftfoflfofrya-_,gr e_*.fafr.JiJ--_i��L__-��-i-jl��a^-Je*'^  ^^i^45��*#*  Wtf^'  33_&2___S_>  gaaS_gffiS_e^&wffirfWi<g:y_  f^feMSPkgwte^  Coast News, July 24,1989  3.  Editor's note: the following was  received for publication.  K. Gibson  Box 2083  Sechelt  Dear Mr. Gibson:  This letter is to follow up on  the field trip which I, J. van  Barneveld (Ministry of Environment), A. van Sickle and N.  Humphreys (Forestry Canada),  J. tseale, B. Custance and B.  Miller (BC Forest Service) and  M. Alexander (Canadian Forest  Products Ltd.) attended on  June 6 in the Sechelt area.  Thank you for showing us examples of what you believe to  be symptoms of acid rain  damage to trees in the Sechelt  area. I do not agree that what  you showed to us is damage  caused by acid rain in particular  or air pollution in general.  In the examples that you  showed to us of dead and dying  trees around the edge of Trout  Lake, it is clear that the water  level has risen and the trees-have  been drowned. The trees that  are on higher ground are not  dying and do not indicate symptoms of air pollution damage (I  have viewed air pollution  damage symptoms in Europe so  am familiar with them).  Another example you showed  to us was some dead and dying  trees and trees with dead tops,  on a rocky site. The species  most affected was western red  cedar, some of the Douglas fir  were less affected. On the same  site were healthy Douglas fir  with no symptoms of damage.  The cause for the damage  and mortality on the rocky site  was not as obvious as the one at  Trout Lake. Based on my  knowledge of the summer  moisture regime of rocky sites  in this area, I would blame  moisture stress as the primary  reasons for the symptoms.  As you know the last two  summers have been quite dry  relative to the average summer.  You may not be aware that  species that are less efficient in  handling water deficits, such as  western hemlock and western  red cedar, have been found  dead amongst stands of the  more efficient Douglas fir on  lower elevations of southeastern  Vancouver Island and on lower  elevations of the Lower  Mainland since this summer  drought trend started.  Last summer I personally examined a stand of Douglas fir  and western hemlock in the  Campbell River area in which  all of the western hemlock had  died recently. The Douglas fir  were vigorous, in contrast.  There was no evidence of an insect outbreak or fungal attack  which could explain the damage  to the western hemlock. Air  pollution could not have been  responsible because there was  ho sign of damage to the  Douglas fir at all. You may  argue that the hemlock are just  more sensitive to the air pollution. There is no evidence in the  European experience to indicate  that one species of conifer is immune from air pollution  damage. The mechanism by  which the damage occurs is such  that it is unlikely that such immunity exists for any species.  We were also shown some  dead and dying trees along the  coastline at Mission Point. The  reasons for this could be due to  a number of causes, some of  which I will outline below.  Some of them are related to  human activities, others to  natural events.  Two Douglas firs were actually being strangled because  something had been tied around  the boles. A dead hemlock had  evidence of a-major wound at  its base which would have  allowed fungal attack to occur  many years ago and finally to  reduce the vigor of the tree to  Changes in Sechelt  Editor: ...  How things Jiave changed in  what used to be nice^ gentte  Sechelt. Frorn.vmy ,'yantage'  point in the Coast News office  by the junction of Cowrie Street  and Trail Bay Avenue, it once  was pleasant to watch the world  go by, and to recognize ferry  traffic times by the pleasant,  sane flow of traffic going  through town.  Not any more! Nowadays the  traffic is constant from morning  til evening - every day and all  day.  There seems to be a new  breed of drivers, many of whom  could be included in the 'insane'  category. They come roaririg  along Cowrie, and heaven help  anyone who 'tries to cross the  road, even at the officially  marked crosswalks.  The only thing that might call  a halt to the continual screeching of brakes and near misses at  this/ junction would be a  Highway Patrol, vehicle visible  and close by.  The reason for making comment on this subject is due to  the number of pedestrians who  drop by at this office complaining about the situation. They do  so with just cause.  There have been rumours to  the effect that traffic will be  diverted from Cowrie to Teredo  Street. This would appear to be  an answer to the problem since  Teredo is wider and there is less  pedestrian traffic.

The area is subject to incursion of brackish  groundwater and to salt spray.  The sodium of this water increases the osrpotic potential in  the soil, which increases the  drought stress for the trees - a  serious problem if combined  with dry summers.  The Sitka spruce we saw were  being attacked by gall aphids  and leader weevils. However,  the majority of Douglas fir tree-  were healthy and vigorous.  Their needles are relatively  large? needle retention i.> at least  five years, normal for the  species in this area; the colour  of the mature needles is a  healthy green and immature  trees are growing adequately in  height without any signs of  distorted growth.  During our discussions at the  beach at Mission Point you  mentioned that you showed  slides of the damaged and dying  trees to L. Carlson and P. Rennie in Ottawa. You stated that  these scientists agreed that what  they saw was due to acid rain. I  telephoned L. Carlson on this  subject and he informed me that  neither he nor P. Rennie said  this to you.  What was said was that there  were a number of possible  causes for the symptoms that  were apparent and that air  pollution could be one of them.  Quite a different statement than  the one you ascribe to them. No  scientist that I ever encountered  would make a definitive state  ment about damage symptoms  based on photographs alone.  As you and I discussed over  lunch, if you are going to look  for signs of acid rain damage on  the Sechelt Peninsula, you  should look to the lakes. They  are a far more sensitive indicator. In particular, you  should examine the chemical  and biological changes that may  be occurring in them, or lobby  to have someone else do this.  Be aware, if you are going to ;  use pH paper to determine the /  - pH of lake water, that a correct  %test requires that you wait for  the chemical reaction to occur  between the water and the  chemical on the paper. This  takes about five seconds. I mention this because you were  reading the paper incorrectly  (pH 4.5 when it was over 5.0) at  Trout Lake. Also, pH readings  using pH paper are not very accurate.  Based on our discussions, it  appears that you are convinced  that acid rain is causing all the  damage and death of trees in the  Sechelt area. I presented  another perspective during our  trip and in this letter to try to  make you aware that ecological  systems are complex and it is  rare that single factors are  manifested as damaged and dying trees, and that air pollution  is not as likely a factor as  physical damage, insects, fungi,  drought stress and drowning in  the examples you showed to us. .

See adja-  ���Laura Russell photo  cent story.  Pages Fronl A LifeLog  Port Mellon remembered  bv Peter Trower  It was an unpromising day.  Rain spattered determinedly  down from a dishrag-grey sky  and summer appeared to have  gone on a wildcat strike. On the  surface, it was hardly propitious  weather for a reunion of former  Port Mellonites. On the other  hand, perhaps it was somewhat  appropriate. Those of us who  once lived in the cloud-  beckoning shadow of Panther  Mountain and its attendant  peaks, have more than a passing  acquaintance with precipitation.  Yvonne arid I took the  precaution of arriving early in  order to nail down a table. We  reasoned - correctly as it turned  out - that a little rain wasn't  likely to put a damper on such a  unique event.  Shortly after 11 o'clock, the  former, townsfolk of Port  Mellon begin to converge on the  Roberts Creek Legion in  earnest. They arrive singly and  in groups, fuelled by a common  purpose - to celebrate a place  and a way of life that has  become history; to rekindle  fading memories; to renew  long-ago friendships that have  lain dormant for-years. Yvonne  and I keep our eyes peeled,  seeking familiar faces. The hall  begins to fill upT  Since my persoanl experiences with Port Mellon date  back to the 40's and 50's, many  of the latter arrivals are unfamiliar to me - but they are a  heartening number of people  from the old Sorg days.  Although a good proportion of  them live locally, our paths  seldom seem to cross anymore.  Now we are all met together  again under one roof for the  first time in far too long.  Everywhere, old friends and  workmates are shaking hands  and embracing. It is a time for  remeeting, reassessing, rehashing days gone by when they  punched the same time clock or  shared adjoining tables at the  Seaside Pub.  There is an atmosphere of  jubilant nostalgia. And there  are undertones of sadness too.  For this is a gathering of survivors. Time has taken its toll  on friends and loved ones alike.  I think of the lost faces of people who once called the pulp-  mill town their home, my own  mother's among them. They  were forced to miss this party  -but they are certainly here in  spirit.  More people show up and  things start to get livelier - and  noisier. A fine two-girl group,  the   Dewberries,   provides   a  musical backdrop to the dull  roar   of   conversation.    My  brother,  Chris  and  his  wife,  Susan, arrive along with other  out-of-towners.   (Former   mill  superintendent,   Ed   Sherman  and his wife, flew all the way  from Hawaii for the occasion).  Chris  and  I  elect   to  stay  around while our ladies take off  on a bus to tour the mill-site.  We chat with dozens of people  from the past - old schoolmates,  Bruce and Lottie Campbell; Billy  Nichols;  George  Hostland  senior and. junior;';Jc4&nd Ernie Hume; 'Squeezebox Eddie  Freer';    Lome   Blain;    Kay  Henry;   Gladdy   Stewart   and  Doris  Bursey;  Stan  and   Pat  Verhulst;    Bob   and   Annette  Jack; Frank and Rocky Zantolas; Joy and Gertie Campbell;  Yvonne's   aunt,   Alice   Veitch  and her daughter, Claire; Lorraine Harris; Donna Thompson  - and a host of other people too  numerous to mention.  Joy Campbell and Alice  Veitch produce poignant  photographs of the distant days  when we were all young. Liquid  refreshments flow freely.  In the late afternoon, with the  crowd beginning to thin out,  Yvonne and I take our leave,  full of good food and warm  memories.  Sincere thanks must be  tendered to Frank Zantolas,  Gloria Hostland, Forda Gallier,  Ernie Hume and Eddie Freer  for organizing this highly worthwhile event. All I can say is:  Let's do it again in a couple of  years.  to Sechelt  The Board of Directors of the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project wish to announce that they  have had to postpone their  plans to build a theatre on the  Sunshine Coast.  The money, both provincial  and federal, which was the major part of their fund raising has  been allocated to another  theatre building in Sechelt.  Because the GLTPS members  have already raised a substantial  amount of money themselves,  both in pledges and cash (seat  sales, dances, etc.) they have  now been negotiating an alternative concept which would obviate the heavy cost of constructing a new building.  When this is finalized, they  will approach the firms who  have pledged money and the  people who have bought seats,  in the hope and expectation that  these donors will agree to stay  with the Theatre Project in  these new circumstances.  They wish to thank all their  supporters for their great help in  this important community effort.

The  beach is the biggest drawing  card and is usually covered in  families having fun. It is the  place where guys meet girls,  moms and dads relax while  children dig in the sand or swim  in the crystal water.  Wind surfers and canoers are  finding the bay an ideal spot to  practice. Of course fishing off  the wharf has always had its  supporters. In an evening between six and sunset those lucky  enough to have a small boat try  their luck fishing while lazily  drifting back and forth.  However, there is more than  that offered in our Bay/Creek  area. Up at the top of Field  Road is a popular airport where  one can get to Vancouver in  minutes on a scheduled flight.  The industrial area is there with  the BC Hydro building, Appa  Seafoods, Scaritech Resources  ���and the Forestry building.  Off Field Road is the Sechelt  Rod and Gun Club and the  Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery.  Almost all the many churches  are within walking distance.  Check this paper for times and  addresses.  There are two parks, Brookman Park on Highway 101 and  Whitaker Park on Davis Bay  Road. Whitaker Park has a  baseball diamond with  bleachers, swings and a  horseshoe pitch. The community hall, library and Teddy Bear  Daycare are on that property,  Brookman Park has a gazebo  and lots of room to picnic. It  also has a path to Chapman  Creek and a nature trail which is  the beginning of the trail to  Chapman Falls.  The community hall offers  fellowship apd an evening out  to the community association  meetings once a month, beginning in September through until  June. Bridge is played every second and fourth Fridays during  the winter and cribbage any Friday you can find an opponent.  The library is open from 12 to 4  on Fridays and 1 to 4 on Saturdays. This is operated by volunteers and more are always  welcome.  At the top of Davis Bay Road  is Davis Bay Elementary  School, complete with large  field and an Adventure  Playground.  Along Simpkins Road is  Kirkland Centre, basically an  Adult Day Care operating three  days a week. This is run by the  Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society. Volunteers are always  needed to drive clients or deliver  Meals on Wheels. Clients are  most   appreciative   and   often  lasting friendships develop.  Coming   events   are   the  Brookman Fishing Derby for  children six to 12 years old, run  by Turner Berry of the Peninsula Market and other .area  commercial businesses. This is  usually held in August.  Then on August 27 the Annual Pioneer Picnic takes place  in Whitaker Park.  This beautiful place that offers something for everyone  welcomes newcomers Stella and  Edwin Wright arid Cecilia and  Vic Walker. After they are settled we hope they will join in  some of the above activities.  Workshop help for  home-based business  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  PENINSULA MARKET  in Davis Bay  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly People Place"  The provincial government is  hosting a workshop in Gibsons  for Sunshine Coast entrepreneurs interested in learning the  essential steps involved in starting a successful home-based  business.  The announcement was made  by Minister of Regional Development, Elwood Veitch,  whose ministry has developed  the workshop series, working  closely with the Chambers of  Commerce and Community  Futures groups around the province.  "There are 130,000 self-  employed people operating  businesses out of their homes in  BC," said Veitch. "Research  indicates that out of the 15,000  home businesses started every  year, 12,000 will fail within two  to five years. The point of our  program is to increase the proportion of successes."  The workshop will be held at  the Cedars Inn on Saturday, July 29 from 9 am to 6 pm, and  the fee is $25 for the eight hour  course. Participants will be  responsible for their own lunch  during the one hour break.  Topics covered will include:  how to choose a business, how  to develop a business plan, in  troduction to market surveys,  basic marketing strategy, financial planning, and pricing and  cost control.  In all communities, this initial  workshop will be followed by a  second workshop designed to  help existing home-based  businesses to market their services and products more effectively.  "Home-based businesses are  the most important incubator  for future businesses that we  have," Veitch said. "North  American trends suggest that in  20 years most British Columbia  employers will trace their roots  to home-based businesses  started over the same period."  The workshop is co-sponsored by the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce, the Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce and the  Sunshine Coast Community  Futures Association.  Anyone wanting more information on the workshop can  call the Sunshine Coast Community Futures Association at  885-1959 or 885-2639. Individuals unable to attand the  workshop can ask for a manual  on how to start a home-based  business.  HOME BASED-BUSINESS WORKSHOP  Join the 130,000 other people in British Columbia who are running successful  home-based businesses.  Learn how to put your business together or learn the things you never had  time for when you started your business.  The Honourable Elwood N. Veitch, Minister of Regional Development, in partnership with Harold Long, MLA, local Chambers of Commerce and Community Futures is offering an eight-hour home-based business workshop.

When they saw us, or  heard us, (there was a constant  yipping and hollering from here  on), they circled a bit, but then  took off, in groups of four or  five, in all directions.  We've all seen film of ostrich  running, and a surprisingly  graceful sight it is, and sure they  seem to be devouring the  ground, but man, ostrich in  flight, that's something else.  Straight out there's no way a  Jeep on the desert could catch  them, but they're tearing along  in irregular zigs and zags. The  Jeeps, bounding, are also going  in zigs and zags, the huntsmen  loudly in cry, and the guns going off, in all directions, mostly  I think up. It was the effect they  wanted. Nobody could possibly  draw any kind of a bead on  these things. The guns were certainly more a threat to the huntsmen than to the hunted.  A scene anyway not to be  forgot. I'm sure none of these  lads would have dreamed of  eating ostrich (rather than  Spam) and I feel sure that none  of them got the chance. Sad  then to see them in the old corral, but always good to see  them.  Somehow they've got a name  for being dumb. Somehow  they're almost synonymous  with not looking life in the eye.  But given much, so much of the  comtemporary scene, what's  really so wrong with the head-  in-the-sand bit?  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.  LOG  BUYING  STATION  Competitive Prices  Camp Run  CEDAR ��� FIR ��HEMLOCK ���  886-7033  As the Peninsula Association  for Leisure Services (PALS)  reaches the final stage in their  efforts to have an inventory/action plan done for the Sunshine  Coast, Gibsons Council has  balked at endorsing the tender  accepted by the other three local  governments and PALS. At last  Tuesday's meeting, Mayor  Diane Strom brought back the  results of a meeting held between the government bodies  and PALS, which she had been  unable to attend on behalf of  Gibsons.  At the meeting three tenders,  which all elected representatives  had perused, were evaluated  and debated with the proposal  from PERK at $30,500 being  accepted. The government reps  were then asked to take the  results back to their councils for  endorsement before PALS  sends out applications for funding.  Previously Gibsons Council  has supported the PALS plan in  principle although, as with each  of the other government bodies,  council noted that it had no  money to throw at the project.  Council did go so far, however,  as to pass a motion that it might  be willing to consider budgeting  for funding if all other government bodies on the Coast contributed.  It wasn't clear at Tuesday's  meeting what caused the turnaround. Alderman Ken Collins  asked why council was being  asked to endorse a tender selection that they had nothing to do  with, adding, "Everyone I  know on the Coast is over-  recreated rather than the other  way around. I think the taxpayers here are quite satisfied  with what we have."  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  commented, "It seems to me a  little superfluous. All the  governments are already moving on their recreation plans."  When asked by Collins if the  PALS project was something he  could do, planner Rob Buchan  clarified that such a function  was not in his job description,  "Recreational planning is a  specialized  field that I don't  claim to have any knowledge of.  I'm very interested but I don't  have the expertise," he said.  Council moved to table the  PALS request until the group  came back to council. Upon  questioning later, Alderman  John Reynolds said that he  hadn't understood that PALS  was requesting the council's endorsement for the tender in  order to show potential funding  agencies that the entire Coast  was being included and was in  support of the project.  When contacted last Friday  Sandy McBride of PALS was  not aware of Gibsons' decision.  She expressed disappointment,  but assured the Coast News that  PALS would be pursuing the  matter with Gibsons.  "This action plan was meant  to have a cohesive effect," she  said. "It has the unqualified  support of the other three  government bodies."  Did You Know...

The InfoCente, now open  from 8 am to 8 pm everday, is  staffed for the summer by three  Challenge '89 students: Tod  Maffin, Dawn Cuthbertson and  Candy Pollock. All three have  been trained as Provincial  Travel Counsellors.  Recently, the InfoCentre  hosted Travel Counsellors from  all over the Lower Mainland  and Fraser Valley during a  familiarization tour sponsored  by the Southwestern BC  Tourism Association. The participants had a very full two  days touring local attractions  and facilities. The highlight of  the southern Coast leg was a full  marine cruise of Pender Har  bour,   organized   by   Lowe's  Resort of Madeira Park.  With tourism being the second largest industry in BC, the  Sechelt InfoCentre is trying to  ensure that visitors' needs are  met. Hourly updates of ferry  conditions are posted for  tourists and the counsellors  always have up to date information on accommodation availability on the Sunshine Coast.  CELEBRATION  A celebration was held at St.  Hilda's on Thursday afternoon  to mark the 40th wedding anniversary of John and Henny  Saunders of West Sechelt.  There was a pleasant surprise  for the happy couple when the  69ers put in an appearance and  sang several numbers in the couple's honour.  Mr. and Mrs. Saunders were  married 40 years ago in  Holland. Congratulations to  both of you.  by Rose Nicholson  ' Questions raised by Alderman Wilson have prompted  Sechelt ; Council to reopen  discussions on Davis Bay.  Wilson told council that an  $80,000 sum allocated to parks  that could have been used to  upgrade the area was transferred to general funds at the  beginning of 1989.  A committee compiled of  members from the Regional  District, the Sechelt Indian  Government District, the  District of Sechelt and Davis  Bay residents was active for a  time in 1988, but very little has  happened since.  Although Davis Bay is within  the boundaries of Sechelt,.  jurisdiction is split between the  Department of Highways,  which is responsible for the  roadway to the high water  mark, and the Regional  District, which holds the  foreshore lease.  Administrator Malcolm  Shanks told council that surplusi  money could still be put:,aside  for this purpose. Y    Y"  Sechelt Seniors  Bride Paige Wilbum and groom Christopher Ricard were married  July 16 in the Church of His Presence on Redrooffs Road in Halfmoon Bay. ���Wade Shaw pholo  CUSTOM COM PAN Y:  LOGOS; ���     .   y  Baseball Hats, Jackets   ,  Sueai & T-Shirts       >  & Summer Shorts       )  THE SUNSHINE CO\ST  Members ol Ihe business community: ��� .'���';���, '.'

The sale will  be held on Friday and Saturday  August 4 and 5 which is official.  There will be someone at the  hall on July 27 and 28 to receive  articles for the sale, between the  hours of 9 am and 2 pm on both  days.

Last year's sale was a  huge success. Let's try to repeat  the performance.  CARPET BOWLING  Last week we were fortunate  in having Mr. and Mrs. Frank  Stojak visit us from Surrey  representing the Carpet Bowling  Association of BC.  Frank spoke to the large  assembly, pointing out the pros  and cons of the^garhe.'It was  stressed that players should  learn the rules at,the start and  play accordingly at all times in  order to standardize play when  the time comes for our branch  to enter provincial competition.  The association consists of  eight zones in BC of which  seven are active. Participation  in these tournaments, which  normally are held in April, is set  up by each zone head. For those  clubs wishing to enter, club  playoffs take place in March.  After Franks's address, those  present bowled, giving him an  opportunity to constructively  criticize, if and when necessary.  It was a very good working session.  The thanks of the branch is  extended to Mr. and Mrs. Stojak.  POM POMS  There were 20 ladies and six  men out for the regular Thursday morning pom pom making  session (crafts as your option  during the summer). This  amplifies the social aspect of  these gatherings, when summer  sessions are reasonably well attended.  The branch now has a very  good  selection  of colours  in  stock, all hand made and tied  with copper wire. These are for  sale at 15 cents each or $15 per  100.  Mona Osborne (885-9392) or  Sam Shore (885-3227) will be  able to serve your requirements  for weddings, parties, celebrations etc.  SALE "KIDS WARE"  tyftty 25* AN ITEM  THRIFTY'S  SUPPORT THE  GIBSONS  Tues - Sat  10-4  886-2488 or Box 598  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  WILSON CREEK  CAMPGROUND  In Wilson Creek  until noon Sattir_ay  "A Friandly People Place"  Capilano Highway Services Company  Hired Equipment  Registration  Capilano Highway Services Company operating in the Sunshine Coast Highway District  is compiling its Hired Equipment List and requests all persons or companies wishing to  have their equipment listed, such as trucks, sweepers, backhoes, loaders, excavators,  graders, rollers or tractors, should contact the Head Office at 1118 Sunshine Coast  Highway, Gibsons, BC, VON 1V0, (Phone 886-2939).

Bess remarked that  the most unpleasant part of the  flight was being seasick, or  perhaps we should say airsick,  while the helicopter hovered  over Vancouver waiting for the  signal to land.  A pacemaker was installed  immediately and Bess is now  safely home and feeling much  better. Her sister-in-law, Vera  Maybee, has arrived from  McLeese Lake to care for Bess  until she regains her strength.  Ed Edmunds, also of Redrooffs, was taken to Emergency  at St. Mary's Hospital on  Thursday when he took ill while  in Sechelt with the shoppers'  bus. Our good wishes go out to  Ed from all of his friends and  neighbours of whom there are  many. Hopefully Ed will be  home by now.

There were 21 bears in attendance, each of them special  which made a difficult task of  selecting winners. Thanks to  Michelle Foss for having taken  care of and reported results.  THE DOWN SIDE  Unfortunately things are not  always happy and rosy in good  old Halfmoon Bay. One can  imagine the shock for Hugh  Meikle of Truman Road when  he looked out of his window  and saw someone driving off in  his boat which had been tied up  at his dock.  The boat was later recovered  damaged and abandoned at  Davis Bay, and police are investigating.  Another very nasty item was  noted on Redrooffs which was  that someone decided to throw  a dirty non disposable diaper  out of their car window to lay  on the side of the road.  SO CHEER UP!  The Halfmoon Bay Child  Care Society are having a con  test for a name for the Day Care  and Out of School Care program which will be offered in  the fail.

Booth  The common toothpick is  two and a quarter inches long,  three 32nds of an inch wide at  one end and one 32nd at the  other, and has a thickness of approximately three 64ths  throughout its length. It has the  natural colour of the hardwood  from which it is made.  Is is used for many things  other than picking teeth. It is  particularly visible at parties.  Speared into olives and such  things, it often gives a porcupine appearance to a tray of  hors d'ouvres.  They are, however, on occasion still used for their primary  purpose. In some; restaurants  there is a permanent supply on  the table. They are usually  stacked upright in one of those  little jugs in which milk is served  with a pot of tea - or was,  before the age of plastic packaging.  One day, some years ago, I  entered a restaurant in Granby,  Quebec. I ordered a meal and  while it was being prepared, a  table was set for me.  I forget why I happened to be  in Granby but obviously I arrived at the restaurant at an odd  time of the day in view of the  heed to set the table and the  delay in serving the food.  Because of this I had time to  contemplate, in a general way,  my surrounding and, in a more  particular way, the tableware.  A little cellophane envelope  caught my eye. I picked it up. It  contained two small coloured  sticks circular in section.  They were about two and a  half inches long and one 16th of  an inch in diametre in the centre  and tapered to a point at each  end. I recognized them at once  as superduper double ended,  candy coloured toothpicks.  I was intrigued. I tore open  the package and there was a  suggestion of perfume.  I took one in my fingers to  get the balance of it, as it were,  and put it to my lips. It tasted of  mint.  Its twin, which was of a different colour, tasted of  something else, I forget of exactly what, first impressions  always being the stronger.  As my meal was still delayed I  had time to contemplate the  departure from the ordinary. If  someone had asked me to  manufacture a toothpick I  would have taken a pocket knife  and whittled one of the standard kind. It would not have  occured to me that there was a  possibility of altering the traditional design.  But someone, somewhere,  had looked at the useful sliver  of) wood that is the toothpick  and had asked himself if it  could be improved. Improved?  Well, at least altered.  Someone had felt there was a  commercial void that could be  filled by a better toothpick. But  more important, to me, he had  resolved his feelings into action  and had produced the article I  was rolling between thumb and  finger.  Did he, I wondered, have a  formula for redesigning the ordinary? If he had a formula,  how was it developed? Was he a  natural observer, a careful  looker at things, a wonderer  why with a practical turn of  mind?  It occured to me that most of  us only half look at things. If we  can be insensitive to the common ~ ibothpickV "what ��� other  things might we be insensitive  towards?  Now take the common nail.  It has a head and a point. People have heads and some of  them will get the point.

Coast News, July 24,1989  Captain Dan Culver is pictured at the helm of The Island Roamer off Ihe Queen Charlottes. See story  below. ���Jacqueline Burns photo  Visiting the Queen Charlottes  Captain of The Island Roamer  by Jacqueline Burns  Dan Culver celebrated his  37th birthday aboard the sailing  ketch he works on, The Island  Roamer . He used to own the  lease on the boat and recently  sold it. He prefers to have the  chance to explore other  horizons sometime in the  future. He'll stay on until the  new owner's all settled in.  His vitality, positive attitude,  friendliness and authority  make him a perfect skipper on a  sailing vessel that could seem  cramped - if personalities ever  were to get touchy. There's a  calm about him that makes  everything and everyone  smooth sailing.  At 6 am he and one of his  crew, Dennis Mense, a marine  biologist begin their day skin-  diving. Dennis is also the chef  with the sweet-tooth and he and  his wife Sabina, (also a marine  biologist), feed the 21 of us on  board with meals that are amazing, especially considering  they're made in a tight galley.  They're back by 7:30 and,  having removed their drysuits,  arc getting ready to sail to  Skcdans. They swim ashore  from the boat. Dan generally  swims back to the boat as well.  He likes to keep fit. When he's  'not aboikrd'Thl* Island Roamer,  chances  are'you'll   find  him  l&Tdo��& PdWERJS  Rentals, Sales, & Service  883-9114  kayaking in a remote area, or  climbing major mountains in  South America or Nepal.  His crew, Sabina and Dennis,  work in perfect harmony with  him; they're like family  together. Dennis and Sabina  have guided tours in the Canadian Arctic and in Antartica.  All three are naturalists and environmentalists. They love the  areas they work in and they love  their lifestyle.  When Dan is asked to talk  about the current situation in  the Queen Charlottes, the making of a National Park on South  Moresby, he is candid. In other  National    Parks,    tourists  generally journey only within a  half-mile of the main highway.  The backwoods are therefore  protected. "Since the ocean is  the highway, people are already  into the back country. Everyone  will be able to get everywhere."  (His excursions ashore were filled with reminders of preserving  the environment). There will be  a heavy environmental impact  on this pristine territory.  He believes that preserving  the land intact comes first and  access comes second. The inter-  tidal areas of Burnaby Narrows  could not handle the impact of  hundreds of pairs of feet each  day/week. The bird nesting  sites, especially thbsc of the An  cient Murrelets, the Sea Lion  colonies, and other nesting sites  need protection.  Why is he tied to the Charlottes? "Bluewater Adventures  looks for wild places that are  rich in history." The company  has full bookings for the summer. Its tour groups include  Canadian and American  Museums, as well as school  children.  He spends the three summer  months on board, mostly touring the Queen Charlottes. The  rest of the year is spent whale  watching in the San Juans, in  Robson Bight, and teaching  Marine Biology to school kids.  He sees the Haida as being  confused about what they want.  Once they've decided, he'd like  to be involved in developing  programs with them. He has  organizational skills to offer  and can help develop leadership  skills within the Haida to  market the tours they are likely  to set up for the public.  "I want to be involved with  projects that I really care about,  not just have a job," he roars  over the wind that's pounding  the masthead and making the  sails full. He is involved and he  does care and those of us  aboard the ketch are glad we  had a chance to meet such a  vital man, so much a part of his  work.

A Mr. Gibson  returned to his Pender Harbour  home Thursday evening to find  the contents of his freezer thawing because his power had been  cut off, a situation that baffled  him because he had not received  a hydro bill since having the service connected a few months  prior.  After a few Friday morning  phone calls, Mr. Gibson discovered that his bills had been  sent general delivery to Gibsons.  While we're on the subject of  services, here's a typical Canada  Post story, perhaps even timely  because of the recent advertising  campaign about improved service:  A local business had a parcel  sent from Toronto earlier this  month and the postmark showed it took three days for the trip  from Toronto to Vancouver, a  fairly quick trip. The problem  was with the trip from Vancouver to Pender Harbour.  That, the postmark showed,  took 10 days.  Please note that this criticism  is not directed at our local post;���.  office. They deserve medals for  working so efficiently in such a  blundering system. Also note  that I have not criticized BC  Tel. This week.  SENIORS ON DRUGS  Last week the BC government's drug and alcohol abuse  campaign included a booth in  the Madeira Park Shopping  Centre. Pamphlets and a questionnaire to describe their  perception of drug abuse among  seniors here were offered to  people over 55 years old.  Prescription drugs were mentioned, but it must be difficult  for one to think of oneself as a  drug abuser if they've been  given a prescription for Valium  or some equally addictive tranquilizer or muscle relaxant by a  trusted doctor.  I wonder if our government  anti-drug crusaders (or our local  ones) have the guts to admit to  the medical profession's role in  the problem?

At Home 886-3131 - ACT NOW!  by Myrtle Winchester  Cookbooks and fundraiser  books are typically unappealing  unless you're a fanatic about  cooking or a fanatic for the  cause supported, but Fireball  Favourites (John Pentland,  General Store Publishing  House, 1989) stands very successfully on its own merit.  Fireball Favourites is an interesting, excellent and classily  produced cookbook, and the  fact that half the royalties from  its sale support Muscular  Distrophy of Canada is merely a  pleasant afterthought, not  unlike a rich chocolate mint  after a gourmet meal.  Author John Pentland, a  firefighter for the University of  BC Endowment Lands Fire  Department, was assigned as  firehall cook one shift back in  '82, and the book is the culmination of his developing interest  in cooking over the past seven  years, one which includes  Chemistry of Cooking and  Recipe Writing courses.  The book is conveniently  coil-bound, meticulously indexed, and clearly laid out and  written. Pyro-culinary illustrations are quietly hilarious.  However, we are talking about  a cookbook here, so the content  is of ultimate, importance.  Pentland explains in his introduction that meals play as  important a part of firehall life  as they do of home life, and that  they suffer the same danger of  becoming boring and routine.  Thus, Firehall Favourites.  ���Although the dishes in the  book are broadly varied (Raisin  Scones to Paprika Chicken with  Yogurt) and sometimes downright exotic (Margarita Pie), all  instructions are consistently  well-organized and all ingredients are available in the local  grocery store.  Recipes are organized under  the conventional chapters of  Breads, Salads and Dressings,  Soups, Seafood, etc., and have  an additional three ethnic  chapters of such unexpected  delights as Full Alarm Chili,  Salsa Pizzaiola and Satziki.  Each of the recipes is designed to prepare a meal for 12  hungry firefighters, but conversion down to the usual four serving size is simple, even without  the use of the Equivalents section thoughtfully provided with  the Metric Conversion table.

They have also built a bus  shelter in downtown Egmont,  put a float in for Waugh Lake  swimmers, installed a community incinerator barrel, helped the  elderly with getting firewood  and moving furniture and  renovated the community hall.  Thank you Egmont Lions.  We appreciate you.  BITS AND PIECES  The Gulf and Fraser  Fishermen's Credit Union president awarded Iris Griffith with  a gold pin for 40 years of continuous membership.  Back in June 1955, the  minister of highways approved  spending of $10,000 on the construction of Egmont Road.  Now, in 1989, that road  needs to be reborn in a bad way.  Reborn a lot wider to accommodate the many, many semitrailers that use it daily.  Back in 1956, the Egmont co-  correspondent Imer Beamish  reports a fine crop of wild  blackberries for the winter supply of jam.  July 1989: "looks like a fine  crop that will help in the makings of many a 'happy hour*.  (And a little jam also.)"  Last week a local paper  reported that 20 Egmonsters  were trying to get into a meeting  in Sechelt, and this week they  reported that the people were  unable to travel from Egmont?

Coast News, July 24,1989  the  's mistress  by Peter Trower  Bette Cooper of Gambier Island enjoyed the sun in Lower Gibsons on Saturday as she demonstrated her skill in transforming  hair from her pet angora rabbits into long, siiky and luxurious  fiber. Gambier Island residents boast of the warmth and softness  of garments made from Cooper's rabbits. ��� Ellen Frith photo  On the Arts Beat  Both Spingolia and Ward are  for shooting it out but Herb is  quick to cite the utter futility of  this. They have little ammunition and are hopelessly outnumbered to boot. "I'm afraid  they've got us dead to rights,  boys," he observes soberly.  "Best thing we can do is come  out with our hands up."  After a brief consultation, the  two younger men are forced to  agree. Their 24-hour freedom is  over.  Back at the County Jail,  Herb and his companions  receive several weeks in the rat-  infested dungeons of solitary  confinement for their troubles.  In addition they are charged  with assault with intent to kill  on the guard, Purrier, and with  the theft of the mail clerk's car.  None of it manages to break  Herb Wilson's spirit or dampen  his obsessive resolve to escape.  As soon as his term in the  hole is up and his visiting  privileges are restored, Herb has  a consultation with Helen. He is  shocked by the noticeable  deterioration in her appearance.  She seems to have aged 10 years  and there are sooty circles under  her eyes. But Helen smiles wanly at him and again insists that  nothing is wrong. Genuinely  worried, Herb urges her to see a  Countdown to '10'  The countdown to 'Celebration 10' has begun and the  energy is high at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt. Preparations for this  special 10th birthday party  began a year ago and the final  touches are now being put on a  very exciting program.  "The idea is to give people a  taste of what the Arts Centre is  all about," says Centre  Manager Donna Shugar. "Each  event is really different from  every other-event - even the  food served at each will be different. There's something for  just about every mood and interest."  The celebrations start with a  Gala Opening Cocktail Party  and they don't slow down for  10 days. The second night,  Saturday, July 29, features jazz.  The finale is an outdoor Latin  Music Concert and a two day  craft fair.  In between there are three  very diverse theatrical performances, a literary event, a comedy film evening, an artists'  reception and a Baroque harpsichord and flute concert accompanying an elegant high tea.  "All the artists are top  notch," says Shugar. "We're  really pleased to have been able  to get performers of such high  calibre."  People such as harpsichord  player Darryl Nixon, jazz  guitarist Oliver Gannon and the  performers from Victoria's  Theatre Inconnu are on the bill.  Brochures outlining the events  are available at stores and  libraries everywhere and tickets  can be had from outlets in  Madeira Park, Oaktree Market,  Sechelt, Talewind Books and  the Arts Centre; Roberts Creek,  Seaview Market, and Gibsons,  Hunter Gallery, Mary's Variety  and Linnadine's Shoes.  NO DEADLINE  There are a number of  workshops in theatre arts being  offered in conjunction with  'Celebration 10'.  'Introductory Foolishness  and Basic Clowning' will be  primarily directed to the five to  Gibsons  Ho��WiC ��***  Tues.  Wed. ^-'SO-Spo,  Sat.

Mime, storytelling, movement and puppetry is the domain of Kerry Mahlman, a  drama teacher by profession,  who will focus on the nine to 12  age group in a program designed for fun.  Mask building and mask  work is the forte of Maggi Lindsay, a local dance teacher,"whb  will concentrate on the 12 plus  group (adults are most welcome).  All three instructors will  share their skills with all three  age groups in these five day sessions, so if you're having trouble choosing, don't worry, you  can learn to be a fool wearing a  mask (no one will know it's  you!) and you can incorporate  movement and maskwork into  your storytelling.  Participants will get a very  broad exposure to the dramatic  arts in the course of the week  (July 31 to August 4) and have  loads of fun in the bargain.  There is still a chance to get in  on these classes by calling  885-7823.  SUMMER INVITATIONAL  This Sunday, July 30 is the  last day you can see the first  half of the Arts Centre's 11th  Annual Summer Invitational  Show. The artwork included  was selected to show the variety  and quality of work being done  on the Sunshine Coast.  The scope includes virtually  every medium commonly employed in the visual arts and one  or two which are not so commonly employed. Anyone with  an interest in the arts in general,  or local work in particular,  would be well advised to see the  two parts of this exhibition.  Part Two begins August 1, and  there will be a reception for the  artists on Monday evening, 7  pm, July 31.  Everybody is welcome to attend this event to participate in  the conversation and to be  among the first to see the show.  The black and white designs  from which the Arts Centre's  first card printing was selected  also comes down on July 30.  This is your last chance to see  the originals displayed as a  group, though the cards are  now available with the four winning images reproduced on  them.  The  10th  Anniversary Ret  rospective display currently examines the events leading up to  the opening of the Arts Centre  in 1979. From the architect,  Clarke Steabner's own files  there are photographs, news articles and documents recording  the rise of the Arts Centre as a  successor to Whittaker House.  Arts Centre visiting hours  are: 10 to 4 Tuesday to Saturday, 1 to 4 Sunday. \  Channel  Eleven  THURSDAY, JULY 27  6 PM  This New House Part 2  The second in the eight part  series on constructing your own  house.

She also promises to act as his  accomplice in yet another  breakout attempt.  It had come to Herb during  the long hours in isolation that  if he could somehow acquire a  set of the right keys, he could  simply walk out of the prison  with no need for violence or  confederates. Laying his hands  on these particular keys was the  obvious stumbling block.  Slowly a plan takes shape.  One of the deputy sheriffs is  known to be less than enchanted  with his job. He is studying law  at night and plans to quit the  service as soon as he earns his  diploma. He is also engaged to  be married and is very much in  need of money. This man may  well prove to be the weak link  they are looking for.  Sure enough, when Helen  makes an anonymous call on  the man at his home and waves  $10,000 under his nose, he proves encouragingly co-operative  and agrees to take wax impressions of the keys in question.  The duplicates are duly made  and smuggled in to Herb.  This time, however, the  scheme doesn't even have a  chance to get off the ground.  Herb is the victim of yet another  doublecross. The trusty who  brought in the keys has a sudden attack of honesty and tells  all to the guards. The next thing  Herb knows, his cell is being  torn apart. The incriminating  keys are found and he finds  himself back in the odious  blackness of the hole for  another extended stretch. Even  now, Herb continues to dream  up new routes to freedom. He  must get out for helen's sake as  much as his own.  By  the   time   his   hitch   in  solitary runs its course, Herb  has  worked  out  yet   another  jailbreak scenario. This one, he  convinces himself, is absolutely  foolproof. He can hardly wait  /to tell Helen. But .when he sees  her, he feels the bottom drop  ^out/of his $tbmach. Y%,v^.  * 4 To be continued...

NEIL AND KAREN DAWE  'Double Exposure' has  become one of the most popular  comedy programs on radio. The  hilarious impersonations of  political figures, famous people  and the Royals are created by  the team of Bob Robertson and  Linda Cullen.  Linda Cullen was born and  raised in Vancouver. She began  her radio career as a disk jockey  then moved to management.  But her dream was to entertain  by using her talent for comedy  writing and voice impressions.  Bob Robertson was born in  England and came to Canada in  1952. He worked as a disk  jockey in Ontario, Alberta and  BC, moved to management,  then back to disk jockey. He  too wanted to use his talents for  satire and mimicry to entertain.  Cullen and Robertson finally  found each other, and the CBC,  and 'Double Exposure' was  born.  They will be entertaining at  the gala opening evening of the  Festival at 8 pm on Thursday,  August 10.  Children are as important to  the Festival of the Written Arts  as the writers and readers that  come to hear and be heard. This  year the Festival is featuring  Betty Water ton",0 'author;' of A  Salmon For Simon, "and the  Quincy Rumple series, and interpretive naturalists, Neil and  Karen Dawe.  BETTY WATERTON  Betty Waterton, who will be  speaking on Friday, August 11,  at 8 am, started writing when  her children were grown. Her  first book, A Salmon For  Simon, won the Canada Council's Children Literature Prize,  was runner-up for the Canadian  Library Association's Book of  the Year for Children Award,  and was selected for the  Children's Choice Award list of  the Washington Library Media  Association.  Since 1978, Betty Waterton  has published nine books, including the Quincy Rumple  series about a 12 year old  private investigator, and  Petranella, which was a finalist  for the 1980 Canadian Library  Association Book of the Year  for Children Award. Her work  has been published in Denmark,  Sweden and Germany.  Neil and Karen Dawe have  been working with nature for  more than 20 years, teaching  children .and adults a hands-on,  learning-should-be-fun   ap  proach to interpreting the  natural world around them.  Together, they have written The  Bird Book and Bird Feeder and  The Freshwater Book and  Bucket (to be published next  spring), a guide to common  freshwater plants and animals.  In 1988 Karen Dawe wrote  The Beach Book and Bucket, a  child's field guide to common  intertidal species of the Atlantic  and Pacific coasts. This month,  The Birds of British Columbia,  a book co-authored by Neil  Dawe and five others, will be  published by the Royal British  Columbia Museum. Neil Dawe  is the Habitat Manager for the  Canadian Wildlife Service on  Vancouver Island.  The Dawes will be speaking  on Saturday, August 12, at 8  am.  Lawyer/novelist William  Deverell will entertain Festival  of the Written Arts audiences  next month in Sechelt.

They have been my  favourite for a burger for years, so I was delighted  to see them on the menu when we dropped in to  the Mariners' Restaurant last week for lunch.  And I wasn't disappointed. They were as tasty  and succulent as they should be, and were enhanced by a tangy dressing that added to, but did not  overpower the delicate flavour of my favourite  seafood.  My companion feels the same way about hamburgers that I do about oyster burgers, and  everyone knows the terrible things that can happen  to a hamburger in the wrong hands.  But this one was exactly the way hamburgers  were meant to be, piping hot, medium rare, with  crisp lettuce and a freshly cut slice of tomato, - all  enclosed in a fresh, but firmly textured bun that  djd not collapse at the first bite.  If we had been in an exotic mood we could have  had all sorts of imaginative things like pita bread  stuffed with seafood or Fajita, pasta, soup or  smoked salmon rolls stuffed with crab.  They do not charge for the view or the  celebrities at the Mariners': Perched high over the  water near the wharf in Gibsons, the wrap around  glass walls let you see the constant coming and going of ferries, speed boats, sail boats and planes,  -all set against the spectacular backdrop of sea and  mountains.  And the added bonus of course, was seeing  Bruno Gerussi and other cast members of the  Beachcombers. I didn't get to see what they had  for lunch, but obviously they too know a good  place to eat.

Coast News, July 24,1989  a        a  lg  All Season Steel Belted Radial  \jMVTtt 100,000 Kilometre Limited WARRANTY  Halfmoon Bay residents Aileen Garnet displays some examples of  the centuries old art of Tole painting she has done. See adjacent  story.  The centuries old art of Tole  painting is stiil thriving due to  the work of people like Halfmoon Bay's Aileen Garnet. A  Sunshine Coast resident since  1970 and a member of the Tole  Painting Society, Aileen has  been practising her art for the  last 20 years. She shows no sign  of stopping and will be providing instruction in a Tole  painting workshop to be held at  the Rockwood Centre, Sechelt.  Tole painting developed  toward the end of the Middle,.  Ages in the mountainous  regions of eastern Europe.  Cabinetmakers began painting  pine furniture as a means of  preserving the soft wood.  In the beginning only simple  designs were added as  embellishment. As time passed,  cabinetmakers became more  elaborate in their decorative  painting which was inspired by  the painted wooden ceilings in  village  churches  and  country  castles. As this folk art became  more popular, people from all  walks of life commissioned  hand-painted furniture to mark  important events in their lives.  Wedding chests, trunks, wardrobes, beds, chests-of-drawers  and cradles were popular pieces.  The appeal of this kind of folk  art has not diminished through  the years and it has become an  art form practised the world  over.  Aileen Garnet started by  painting large cream cans and  then progressed to chests, small  boxes and other types of furniture. Sensing that many  techniques were still alien to  her, Mrs. Garnet began formal  studies in Tole painting eight  years ago. Since the wood requires special preparation and  the actual painting techniques  are specifically adapted to the  surface to be painted, Aileen  found these studies to be invaluable.  Mrs. Garnet is a great admirer of the beauty produced by  Tole painting and is looking  forward to passing on her  knowledge to others. The  Rockwood Centre is happy to  present Aileen Garnet's Tole  Painting Workshop to be conducted in the months of  September and October. All interested parties are required to  preregister on July 26 at 2 pm at  the Rockwood Centre.  PV.OS   "FREE REPLACEMENT"  "**"   Road Hazard Protection  ASK TODAY FOR DETAiLS!

WE TEACH YOU WHAT THE BOOKS CAN'T...  * Fully Qualified PADI Training  by Penny Fuller  When was the last time you  had a good long laugh? No, an  amused chuckle doesn't count,  nor does a cynical snort. I'm  talking about a real belly-laugh,  a gut-buster, or at the very least  a prolonged giggle.  Every baby should be born  with a Surgeon General's warning stamped where it can be  easily seen: Taking life too  seriously can be hazardous to  your health. Small children  know it instinctively, they're  always asking to be tickled.  For those who are born under  the sign of the perpetual child,  Leo, (July 23-August 23) it is  especially important to reclaim  that knowledge. Small children  are incredibly clean emotionally. They cry, they laugh and  they yell their anger at the  world.  It's unfortunate that the older  you get, the murkier you get  emotionally. Matthew: 18.3  says, "Except ye be converted  and become as little children, ye  shall not enter the kingdom of  heaven." As with any great  teaching, you can pull a  multitude of meanings out of  that one, all of them true. For  my purpose, I'll suggest that it  clearly indicates the need to  return to the emotional clarity  and health of a young child.  Consider this, you with Leo  Suns, your emotional repertoire  has probably decreased considerably since you were five.  As an adult many of you have  maintained, and indeed  perfected, your ability to roar  your dissatisfaction.  Some of you may, probably  after some form of therapy,  have learned to express your  sadness through tears. That's  good. But there's a crucial element missing - laughter.  It's been proven repeatedly in  recent years that laughter heals.  For those of you who need a  scientific explanation, that too  has been provided. Laughter  stimulates the production of  catecholamine hormones in the,  brain which in turn releases en-  dorphines. These are the body's  natural pain suppressents,  natural pain suppressors, which  foster a sense of well-being  while strengthening the immune  system.  your life becomes, the more  crucial it is that you laugh. Consider it your birthright, if you  were born with the Sun in Leo,  to nurture and pamper the child  within, give it a good tickle now  and then. Everyone needs it, but  for a Leo it's basic survival.  You take vitamins. Maybe  you exercise, you have a whole  list of things that you do for  yourself to be healthy. At the  top of that list should be seeing  funny movies, reading amusing  books and exposing yourself to  the healing powers of comedians at least twice a week  -more when times are rough.  It is only after you have  released the life-supportive  chemicals in your physical body  that you are likely to make life-  supportive decisions. The more  important the decisions that you  are making, the more essential it  is to make them after you've  laughed yourself silly.  This is serious business. Consider it part of your personal.  hygiene and lighten up. It's a  healthy habit you could learn to  enjoy.

See  Olympic results on Page 7. ��� Vem Elliott photo  On the rocks  by Frank Nanson  The Men's Summer Medal,  which is a net tournament was  won by John Revington with a  59. The weather was the worst  one could imagine, with one exception - it didn't snow!  The Senior Men had 80  players out on Thursday with  Jack Knaus making it closest to  the hole on the eighth green.  The tees were captured by Bruce  Matthews and his team who I  am told were all out of them  anyway and are very pleased to  replenish their supply.  Winning team was captained  by John Petula with Sheridan  Greig, George Bay ford, Ted  Hennicker and Lome Blaine.  The 18-hole ladies had an interesting competition on Tuesday. They played their 18 holes  but used each player's best nine  to determine the day's winners.  First flight was taken by Kay  Budd with 31, followed by  Doreen Harris and Connie  Grant.  Second flight was won by  Hazel Wright, with Marlis  Knaus, and Bev Taber second  and third.  Third flight had Louise Var-  co first, Nancy Nanson second  and Mary McKinnon third.  The 9-hole ladies winner of  the Alice Bird Eclectic event was  Edna Fisher, with Margo Matthews and Adie Gayton tying  for second place and Mary  Ewan and Lucette Vanables tied  for third.  Mixed Twilight golf had only  20 out, last Monday with Lorna  Huggins and Bill Ewan winners  in the mixed play. They had a  men's longest drive on the  fourth hole with Harry Johnson  winning the prize which had  been donated by Christine's  Gifts.  At their last meeting the  Board of Directors decided it  was best to cut off all further  membership applications. There  is a waiting list of nearly 30 at  this time. This plus the uncertainty of the hoped for expansion to 18 holes is contributing  to overcrowding on the course.  It is certainly a sad situation.  Not being able to play golf on  the Coast will effect the decision  of many of the persons who had  intended to move here at retirement. There is news of plans for  two new golf courses at  Squamish plus another two  courses at Whistler. Pemberton  is proceeding with the expansion of its 9-hole course to 18  holes.

The lead starts off the  play by throwing two rocks  which should be in the house  (the circles are known as the  house), or just in front of the  house so a lead must have  dependable draw weight. A  draw weight rock is one which is  softly thrown toward the centre  circles.  The second throws the second  pair of stones in the end. The  job of the second is to remove  opposition lead stones or to  draw to the house if requested.  Hence the second player is  usually a more experienced  curler than a lead because the  position is a little more complicated.  The third delivers the third  pair of stones. The third may be  asked to throw a knockout  stone, a draw stone or some  times the more complicated  shots such as the come around,  the freeze, or the touch back.

First up for the Legionaires  were the Padres. Backed by excellent pitching from Alex  Skytte, Rich Waugh and  Weepee Peers the Legion batters pounded out many hits  throughout the lineup. Legion  won 11-0 and lowered their  league leading ERA even more.  In the second game the  Pacific Coast Angels held on to  top spot beating RC Legion 2-0  in a well pitched game from  both pitchers, Weepee for  Legion and Corky Neufeld for  PCA;  Legion loaded the bases with  two out in the seventh inning  but couldn't score the winning  runs.

BACKING INDEPENDENT BUSINESS  ���  Federal Business  Development Bank  Banque federate  de developpement  CanadS  Editor's note: the following has  been received for publication.  The Honourable Tom Sniddon  Minister of Fisheries & Oceans  House of Commons  Ottawa, Ontario.  Dear Mr. Minister:  I am compelled to write to  you following your recent  statements regarding the drift-  net fisheries.  During an international conference on drift-net fisheries  you stated that there is not sufficient scientific data to support  a call for a moratorium on the  North Pacific Squid Fleet.  These remarks are disturbing  for two reasons:  1. They reflect your ambiguity  about the potential ecological  devastation, and environmental  havoc that is being played out  right now in the North Pacific.  2. More importantly, it shows  your apparent lack of understanding on the subject.  Between 1979 and 1987,  Canada, under the auspices of  the Department of Fisheries and  Oceans, conducted its own experimental drift-net fishery  operations off the west coast of  Vancouver Island. This was  done on a very small scale, and  can in no way be compared to  the magnitude of the present  Asian Fleet. In 1986, the 'Incidental Catches' by these  Canadian   boats  included:  49  marine animals, 412 sea birds,  32,338 blue sharks, 19,253 pom-  frets.  I am forced to remind you,  Mr. Minister, that in 1987 the  federal government cancelled  this experimental fishery operation because it proved to be an  environmental disaster. And  now, two years later, you are  still looking for.evidence. The  evidence is in. The Alaska-  based citizens' group  SEACOPS has conducted investigations of the Asian Squid  Fleet. They estimate that 30,000  tonnes of pirated salmon were  sold illegally in 1988. That's 40  million fish.  An undercover operation by  the US National Marine  Fisheries Service exposed a  world-wide ring of salmon  black-marketeers. This spring,  the US Justice Department  brought indictments against 22  individuals and companies accused of. smuggling 700,000  kilos of Pacific Salmon out of  California and Washington  State.  Meanwhile, the Canadian  Government has done nothing.  There   is   overwhelming  evidence that unparalleled  devastation is being wrought on  all living creatures in the North  Pacific, by the action of the  Asian Squid Fleet. I urge you to  review the facts. As Minister of  Fisheries, your department's inaction on the issue is inexcusable.  As Member of Parliament  representing the interest of BC  Pacific Fishing communities, I  demand an immediate  moratorium on drift-net fishing  in the North Pacific.  Raymond Skelly, MP  North Island-Powell River  Teachers and nurses compared  Editor's note: the following has  been received for publication.  The Rt. Hon. William  N. Vander Zalm  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  Dear Sir:  I refer to the pending industrial dispute between the  nurses and the hospital  authorities. In such a dispute  the settlement must be fair, in  order to be acceptable to both  sides. The rejected settlement  obviously is far short of such  fairness.  The nurses appear less expert  at settling industrial disputes  than other highly organized  bodies such as teachers, who are  equally funded out of the provincial treasury. Therefore,  more understanding and flexibility   is   required   with   the  nurses.  A fair settlement obviously  has to take into consideration  two important components i.e.  job satisfaction and remuneration. If nurses are overworked  because of a staff shortage this  ��� MARINE SERVICES ���  MISC SERVICES  UTHERLANDG��^  ERWICE LTD  _plp_PL  YANmAn  merCfui/er    ���"*"**  STERN ORIVES/INIOARDS DIESEL ENGINES  Parts & Service for All Makes of Outboards  Dockside or Dryland VHF g &1g  at COHO MARINA, Madeira Park  883-1119/  Cottrell's Marine Service  SERVICE TO ALL MAKES  Specializing in Merc Outboard  A stern drive rebuilding  Located at  Smitty's Marina, Gibsons  SHOP 886-7711     RES. 885-5840 _  L^f^y^^^Mkprop-Tonv Dawkins  Trophies.

B.C. VON 1V0  must be the main cause for job  dissatisfaction. Financial  rewards must be compatible  with education, responsibility  and job environment (regular  night shifts, weekend work etc.)  If your experts in your  human resources division would  make a job evaluation and compare nurses with teachers, you  would get the surprise of your  life! You would see that the  educational qualifications are  comparable (university education) the responsibility to care  for the sick and old (operation  theater, intensive care) is  sometimes greater than teaching  a horde of healthy kids (if the  kids are ill they are sent home).  Now look at the financial  rewards: A teacher working  eight months in the year, 22  hours per week equals 1000  hours per year earns on an  average $45,000 which equals  $45 per leisurely hour!  A nurse who works 48 weeks  per year, five days a week of  minimum eight hours, works  1920 hours per year and the  maximum wage is $36,000 per  year which equals $18.75" per  hour!  For comparable educational  qualifications and responsibility  you pay the nurses a meagre  41.66 per cent of what the  teachers get. Is this fair? You  can argue that the nurses chose  their profession on their own.  Granted; but through their  militancy the teachers have got  far more of the provincial  financial pie than other, equally  important members of our community.  You have done it in the past,  you will do it again in the  future; why not slap half a per  cent onto the provincial sales  tax and out of these monies give  the nurses an employment  package which will commensurate with their education,  responsibility and work effort.  All of us will get old and sick at  one stage and it would be consoling to know that we shall be  looked after by a competent,  contended staff in our hospitals.  Jakob Knaus  Mistakes corrected  Editor:  I am truly dismayed that you  have not seen fit to correct two  terrible mistakes in my letter of  last week. I wrote on behalf of  pur small parish (Anglican) of  St. Columba of Iona, which  meets regularly in the little  church named 'The Church of  His Presence', at Halfmoon  Bay. It is a small church (seats  24) that the late Canon Alan  Greene built in memory of his  wife. (He is responsible for  Greene Court also.)  His church and the house  they lived in stand on the same  piece of property which is now  up for sale. And so the threat  exists, at the moment, that the  church may be lost to us, depending on who buys the property,  whether the new owners will be  understanding or riot - but we  ' just may bllucky!  Mrs. Sue McLeod in her letter (3 weeks ago), spoke as if the  Church is already lost, which is  incorrect, not yet, at any rate.  We simply do not know, as  yet!  The mistakes in my letter of  response last week, caused its  meaning to be totally lost and  made me look foolish!  One sentence read: "It is a  filling memorial to the woman  who did so much good mis  sionary work, etc.", which  should have read: "It is a fitting  memorial to the man who did so  much, etc."  Canon Alan Greene did the  good missionary work for many  years, not his wife!  How can anyone make such a  glaring mistake!  Piease understand my con-  cam tor the sake of our  parishioners, also for the sake  of many people who live near  the church, and please have the  two corrections made in next  week's issue - it would be very  much appreciated.  Elisabeth Low  Gurney hears from horsemen  Editor:  Once again Mr. Gurney. has  opened his mouth and publicly  offended the residents of our  Coast. 1 am referring to his  statement in 'Path problems',  July 10 issue of the Coast News.  I quote: "Unfortunately,"  quipped Gurney, "horses don't  read and their riders aren't  much smarter*" I cannot speak  for the many horse owners and  riders who live here but on  behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Equestrian Club we find this  statement offensive and damaging.  It is unacceptable for Mr.  Gurney, as a representative of  the regional board to make such  statements. We suggest to Mr.  Gurney, he should keep his personal thoughts to himself and  out of the public's eye.  Lisa D.

Coast News, July 24,1989  Sunshine Coast residents will  be offered three 'made in BC  visual arts telecourses beginning  in September. Emily Carr College of Art and Design (ECCAD) and the Open University  will present 'Contemporary Art  in Canada', 'Colour - An Introduction' and 'Mark & Image', through facilities of the  Knowledge Network.  The courses will be offered  for   credit   to   those   working  toward a college diploma or  university degree. They also will  be available on a non-credit  basis for personal enjoyment  and enrichment. Participants  will use television presentations  in conjunction with home-study  materials and telephone tutoring to complete the courses.  'Mark & Image' present*, a  new appraoch to drawing. Instructor Tom Hudson, IX\m  Emeritus   at    ECCAD   works  with a group of students in the  studio to illustrate a variety of  mark making techniques.  "Making a mark, any mark, is  a joy," said one student, "I  learned to trust my own creative  abilities. That's what I got from  this course."  Hudson also hosts 'Colour  -An Introduction,' which  recently won a coveted Ohio  State Award for excellence in  educational television. It  presents the theory and practice  of colour in a wide range of applications. The course is intended for all those who work with  colour, and is now closed captioned for the hearing impaired.  The third telecourse, 'Contemporary Art in Canada,'  presents a broad overview of the  lives and work of significant ar  tists in this country. It provides  a hew perspective for those  whose focus may have been  dominated by European art ex-  peiicnce.  'Contemporary Art in  Canada' is a two semester  course which continues through  spring 1990. The other two  telecourses are single semester.  'Colour -An Introducation' will  be available only in the fall.  'Mark & Image' will be offered  in both  fall and spring. All  courses begin in September.  Registration deadline 'for  those enrolling in telecourse is  August 22, 1989.

In general terms, proposed Gambier  Island Trust Committee By-Law No. 22  cited as "Gambier Island Zoning By-Law,  1979, Amendment By-Law No. 1, 1989" is  a by-law to amend Gambier Island Trust  Committee By-Law No. 12 (the Gambier  Island Zoning By-Law) by:  1. Modifying the existing "WATER CONSERVATION (WC) ZONE" and its attendant regulations to allow application to  waters adjacent to the Island (as well as  tidal waters) for the preservation and protection of natural qualitites. Permitted  uses become reserves intended to protect  or maintain natural or recreational values,*:  plus marine navigaticn*aids��YvY~ ....   '.;  2. Introducing the following five water ,  zoning classifications: The "WATER**  GENERAL (WG) ZONE" designates areas  for moorage accessory to residential use,  for provision of public facilities, and for  maintenance of natural quality and  recreational potential. Permitted uses are  moorage ' and dockage accessory to  residential use; public docks, ferry slips,  boat launching facilities; swimming  floats; marine navigational aids; and  public shellfish reserves. The "WATER IN-  SITUTIONAL (Wl) ZONE" designates area  for moorage and recreational uses adjacent to institutional camps and clubs.  Permitted uses are moorage and dockage  accessory to institutional camps, marine  navigational aids, boat launching  facilities, swimming floats, and yacht  club outstations. The "WATER LOG  STORAGE (WLS) ZONE" designates  areas for log storage. Permitted uses are  log storage, marine navigational aids, and  moorage and dockage accessory to  residential use. The "WATER LOG SORTING (WLSG) ZONE" designates areas for  sorting grounds. Permitted uses are log  sorting grounds and marine navigational  aids. The "WATER PARK AND RECREATION (WPR) ZONE" designates areas for  marine parks and recreation areas. Permitted uses are marine parks, marine  recreation areas and reserves, and marine  navigational aids.  3. Amending Schedule A (the Gambier  Island zoning maps) to designate areas to  be in the aforementioned zones as shown  in Plan No. 1 of By-Law No. 22 and shown  generally in the sketch accompanying  this Notice.  4. Adding definitions for the terms  "floathouse" and "permanently reside".  A copy of the proposed by-law may be inspected at the Islands Trust Office, 747  Fort Street, Victoria, BC, between the  hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to  Friday inclusive, excluding statutory  holidays.  For convenience of the public only, and  not to satisfy Section 957(2)(v) of the  Municipal Act, an additional copy of the  proposed by-law may be inspected on the  Public Notice Board at the New Brighton  Wharf, Gambier Island.  Cynthia Hawksworth  Manager  1  Editor:  Are our newspapers getting  good marks in providing adequate coverage of the forestry  debate unfolding around us in  our province? Not by a long  shot, according to R. Bronstein  of the Association of BC's Professional Foresters, in a letter  published in the Vancouver  Sun, on June 12.  The same publication quoted  Stephen Owen, Provincial Ombudsman, where he expressed  the need for more input from  local communities, groups and  individuals in determining proper policy in the harvesting of  BC forests.  As an area historically prominent in forest activities, we  recognize that to a large extent  jthe fortunes of the community  rise and fall with the overall  health of the forest harvest. We  are all, I am sure, increasingly  concerned with the currently expressed views on sloppy and  wasteful logging utilization and  the suggested ineffective stumpage gathering procedure upon ,  which is a fair resource return to  ! the citizens, is dependent.  We  should,   I   submit,   be  equally alarmed with a practice  that has made a substantial con- ���  tribution to forest waste; log  sinkage in the Howe Sound sor-  jting  area;   the   Howe 'Sound  ' upon which we border. With "  the privilege of living beside this  beautiful   (even   if   slightly  embellished)   body   of  water,  conversely, goes the obligation  of searching for environmentally sound  industrial  practices,  and   collectively   discouraging  questionable existing practices.

Help for  diabetics  At the Canadian Diabetes  Association B.C. Division's Annual General Meeting on May  26 to 28, the Sunshine Coast  and District branch made a  commitment of $1000 to the  Charles H. Best Fund for  diabetes research, helping to bring the total from B.C. to  $400,000.  The Charles H. Best Fund,  inaugurated in 1975, is the  largest non-governmental  organization which distributes  funds for research inter the  causes of diabetes.  Diabetes is the third leading  cause of death by disease in  Canada. The Canadian Diabetes Association is dedicated to  raising funds for research, promoting public awareness,  education, and providing services to people with diabetes.  x  Drop oil your  COAST NEWS  Ci-ASftlPIKDS  at  "Wtm Com! Nowat  Gibsons  "A Fri*ndly Pwopl* Placa"  sinkage prone western hemlock  trees - we are still logging first  growth forests; since these  forests began before the appearance of foresters and  nursery seedlings, God planted  the crop. The nurturing of the  crop has been left to "experts"  -thinning and spacing, fertilizing and pruning, fending off of  fires and pests, finally the issuing of cutting rights.  Might I add, with the exception of God, most experts in one  way or another are on the public  payroll. But money well spent  providing the harvested trees  make it to the manufacturing  plants. But I share the concern  of workers in the activity that  too many merchantable logs  become the victims of sinkage in  transit.  Much speculation exists as to  the actual scope of loss by  sinkage and what the true costs  in losses have been, and are at  present. The importance of such  losses (if in fact they are significant) is heightened by the concerns of the local lumbering  community in that this district is  rapidly becoming a "have-not"  area in timber availability.  A community newspaper  thrust to determine the true  scenery of under-water Howe  Sound would do much to put at  ease the conscience of local  observers and others who may  be asking: Are losses significant  enough to be a contributor to  plant closures? to stumpage  revenue losses? to water "impurity"? to speed up the need to  log alternate and sensitive  areas?  The  provincial  governmentY  may soon be reviewing its forest  policy.  Your assistance in this local  situation might well be appropriate.  R.

La$i week's  winner was Bryce Higgins of Madeira Park, BC, who correctly  identified the Vista Villas just south of Madeira Park on Hwy  101.  Forbes Centre  meets opposition  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) will be moving  quickly on an inquiry for  discovery regarding the Forbes  Centre. The private clinic,  which treats drug and alcohol  addictions, was established in  the residential area last fall, in  contravention of local zoning.  Residents from the area were at  the SCRD board meeting last  week to express their frustration  at the centre's continuing operation in their neighbourhood.  Kevin Hatfull, who lives  across the road from the centre,  was spokesman for the group.  The residents of the area, he  stated, had moved there because  "the Rl zoning would  guarantee the quality and seren-  tiy of a residential setting."  When the centre was set up,  in contravention of both the settlement plan and the zoning,  last December residents filed a  protest with the regional  district. The SCRD, in turn,  sent a letter to the provincial  government, but "...the Forbes  Centre continued in their activities with building contractors  and staff and Ministry of  Health vehicles making daily  visits."  According to Hatfull, MLA  Harold Long has refused to  return calls or answer questions  on the matter, as has the health  unit.  Dr. Marsh, who is in charge  of the health unit was also at the  meeting and appeared to be  upset at what he was hearing.  He maintained he was unaware  of the calls and apologized for  the health unit. Marsh asked  residents to bring their complaints to him.  "If there are problems with  the internal workings of the  health unit I will direct my attention to it," he promised.  Marsh also explained that he  signed the permit for the  centre's operation on instructions from the Ministry's  lawyers, who told him the Act,  as it exists, must be enforced.  Kathy Hatfull told the  meeting that she has taken the  matter into her own hands. She  has been stopping vehicles going  into or out of the centre and  talking to prospective clients.  She said she tells them that she  admires them for getting help  but that the centre is not wanted  in that neighbourhood, and  asks for their co-operation.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson urged speed in acting on  the issue. He told the board that  Bill 39, which is currently being  introduced in the provincial  legislature, will give the provincial government the power to  over-ride local zoning in  locating Community Care  Facilities. The legislation would  effectively nullify the court decision handed down in a similar  case in Prince George where the  zoning by-laws were upheld.  The board agreed to proceed  with haste and to write MLA  Harold Long objecting to the  proposed legislation.  Not-so-merry chase  leads to psychiatrist  At 9:15 pm on July 15,  Sechelt Detachment received a  call of an impaired driver in  Madeira Park. While responding to this call the member was  informed that the suspect vehicle was now parked at a house  on Truman Road.  The occupant of the house  reported the car had been abandoned in her driveway and now  the suspect had commandeered  a 20 foot boat. The investigation was then directed to Davis  Bay where the suspect beached  the boat. He then ran to the  Beach Buoy Drive-In and  liberated a hamburger and fries  from a surprised patron.  Then the suspect hailed a cab  and took off for the Roberts  Creek area where he was subsequently arrested.  The suspect was committed  to Lions Gate Hospital under  the provisions of the Mental  Health Act for psychiatric  evaluation, and the investigation continues.  On July 10, members of  Sechelt and Gibsons  Detachments searched a  residence on Conrad Road.  Two grams of cocaine and 12  grams of marijuana were seized.  Two adults, one male and one  female, are being investigated  and charges are pending.  On July 18, Capilano College  on Inlet Avenue reported vandalism to the building and  grounds. RCMP are investigating and any TIPS concerning this case should be called to Crimestoppers for a  reward.  Regional health  services to he  reorganized  Sechelt Alderman Joyce Kolibas, reporting on a recent  conversation with Dr. Marsh of Coast Garibaldi Health Unit,  told council July 19 that provincial plans to reorganize health  services will mean the Sunshine Coast will have to choose  whether to be part of Region 1 or Region 2. There will be further discussions on these plans prior to the Union of BC  Municipalities meeting in September.
