Y,;Y"  The groiipyarrived at Thursday's board meeting armed with  a petition of 120 signatures,  which th^y^old reporters had  been gathered in the space of  two and one half hours, opposing the rezoning of the Farr-  ingtoti Cove development to an  increased density level.  - r The petition itemizes 11 issues  whiehr the > delegation   felt  Immersion  by Rose Nicholson  A group of about 40 people  including the Canadian Parents  for French, their children and  their supporters gathered in  front of the School Board Office in Gibsons last Monday  morning at 8 o'clock to once  again state their case for French  Immersion.  Former Trustee Doris Fuller  told the group, "there may be  problems with French Immersion but they are not insurmountable."  Gordon Wilson, leader of  The B.C. Liberal Party and  regional district representative  for the Pender Harbour area  commented that some of the  main opposition to the program  comes from that area. "But,"  he said, "I feel there are a lot of  misconceptions of what the  (School) board is trying to do."  Commenting on the board's  committment to community  based schools he said it was not  logical that the board on one  hand was prepared to pour large  sums of money into the small  school concept, and on the  other turn around and eliminate  a program like French Immersion. "If," he said, "one starts  to eliminate programs on the  basis of equal access, it seems  that other programs in the main  stream are also in jeopardy."  Zale Daalen, a Gibsons  parent with two sons in the  French Immersion program,  commended the board for the  excellence of the program and  reminded it of its committment  to continue. He went on to suggest the real issue was one of opposition to French and to  Quebec; "just one step short of  the white sheet and the burning  cross," he said.  "If you scrap it (French Immersion)," he added, "be  prepared for a public relations  problem that will make the Rob  Noyes problem seem pleasant."  <  Another speaker j said,  "French Immersion is a method  of teaching French, nothing  more, nothing less. Let's keep  politics out of it. Youfve got  one good thing going for the  district. Why would you want to  phase it out?"  In a lighter vein, David  McGregor of Gambier Island  told the group that after four  years of French in high school  he couldn't speak the language  and felt he was handicapped in  the job market.  He later went to McGill  University in Montreal and took  six weeks of French Immersion  and learned more than he had in  four years of high school. "But,  he added, "it was not enough so  I went back to Quebec and got a  French wife. That way, if  French Immersion is scrapped,  my kids will still have French."  The gathering was an orderly  one. Police were present but  merely issued friendly warnings  to protesters to stay off the  road.  The meeting concluded with  the children singing 'O Canada'  in French.  justified a new public hearing  on the issue. It states Area A  Director Gordon Wilson, who  chaired the first public hearing,  showed prejudice in favour of  the developer in that he didn't  allow full discussion by  residents in opposition to the  zoning.  Many of those present expressed, .anger the hearing was  not heitf in Pender Harbour  where the development is  situated, but was convened in  Sechelt.  When questioned about the  reason for locating the hearing  in Sechelt, Wilson told the  Coast News, "It was a judgement call on my part."  The hearing, he explained*  was followed by an Area Plann-  mg Cbnwnitt^  for Area A, whicht:was to be  held in Sechelt. The develbjters  of Farrington Cove, Tom  Howatt, and his agent both sit  on the committee.  At the time the rezoning application came to the SCRD  board, Wilson told board  members he would handle the  public hearing and that it wasn't  a contentious issue.  The revised density, from one  unit per 750 square metres to  ***  one  per  640  square  metres,  '...crosses the bounds of what  we wish to tolerate in our community' and is 'out of keeping  with originally announced plans  for the development' the petition states. Further, the higher:'  density sets a dangerous preceY;  dent and could cause servicing :  problems which could cost area Y  ratepayers, it says.  The   original   development  plans indicate intentions to construct up to 100 units on the  parcel of land owned by Tom  Howatt but the density was to;:4  be averaged on the basis of'twoh-j  separate parcels being hooked;4,  together by a covenant.

In an interview with the  Coast News, hospital administrator Ted Wright said the  number of patients in the  hospital had been reduced to the  lowest that was reasonably  possible and that all surgery,  physiotherapy and X-rays that  were not of an emergency  nature had been cancelled.  However, nurses and  members of the supporting  Hospital Employees Union continue to work so all emergency  cases are taken care of, and the  needs of the remaining patients  arcmet. ���'���''���  Wright said that at the beginning of last week, several  serious surgery cases that had  been backlogged were taken  care of, but from now on only  emergency cases will be scheduled.  At the time of writing, agreement had been reached with the  nurses on all non-money issues,  though wage issues have yet to  be setded.  Items that have been agreed  on are the introduction of a  responsibility   clause   giving  nurses more input into patient  care; additional benefits for  employees on Workmans Compensation leave; improved considerations for casual  employees; improvement in  work scheduling; more flexibility   in   leave   provisions   and  several other minor issues.  The Health Labour Relations  Association (HLRA) has offered nurses pay increases that  will, over a three year period,  make them the highest paid in  Canada, Wright said.

We apologize for the  schedule delays you are experiencing. We are aware of the  diverse effects of schedule  delays on any of our routes,  particularly during the busy  summer period when so many  people are travelling.  MV Queen of Coquitlam  came out of refit, ready to ser  vice the Horseshoe Bay-  Nanaimo route, however one  engine went and the ship was  unable to maintain the longer  run so it was put on the shorter  Horsehsoe Bay-Langdale route.  The faulty engine is being inspected to determine what  repairs are needed and how long ���  they will take. The vessel is  operating, under full CSI certification.  The fact; that there is a dock  out of service at both Langdale  and Horseshoe Bay is further  affecting the schedule with Captains being extra cautious in  their approach to the dock.  Again, our apologies. We appreciate your co-operation and  patience as we try to work out  the most effective solution to  the problem.  In the meantime, a decision  has been made to modify the  schedule. Please see our advertisement in the Business Direc-  tpry for schedule changes.  Grad supported  This year's high school grads will once again be offered  free rides by local ambulance drivers acting as chauffeurs.  Many local businesses are giving support to the ambulance  personnel. South Coast Ford is offering the use of nine  vehicles, there will be free gas from Chevron, free ICBC  coverage and portable radios courtesy of BC Cellular.  Grads can request rides to any place on the Sunshine  Coast. Last year the drivers provided 230 rides between Gibsons and Middlepoint.   .  The program, started eight years ago in Vernon, now  serves more than 20 municipalities. It has the support of the  police, M.A.D.D., parents and students.  Local eo-ordinators are Gerald Sullivan (885-9607) and  Keith Baker (886-2511).  Business hours  It will be business as usual for the Sunshine Coast News this  weekend.

Teachers on fence  Teachers on the Sunshine Coast, up till now, have chosen  not to take sides on the French Immersion issue. A meeting of  the Sunshine Coast Teacher's Association (SCTA) last Thursday failed to produce a quorum so the meeting was adjourned  with no decisions on the issue.  In an interview with the Coast News, Joan Robb,  spokesman for the SCTA said the teachers are concerned  about the conflict that the controversy has caused in the  district.  "Teachers," Robb said, "are involved in all parts of the  issue. Some teach or have children in the French Immersion  program and others teach or have children in the regular program. Basically, they have chosen to let the Board decide."  1  ���V  ^ Coast News, June 26,1989  A^m'mm'tyi,tW{i*winMN*mMm\��wmimM��wmemiimimM\im*im wiwi  %&&L?&&:vVr;?/*Y:; '< ; i '* ',/:-^>'," Yi Y-^ Y';3  ^_iii^.'^_^��^-X^^"^i_ ".i__.^:��_-_. >;^i___ruv_s__-__:d___s^l  #&��  PS  The debate over French Immersion has divided the community and the school board. Positions are zealously held  and passionately defended. The long term issue of the efficacy of our school systems in Canada teaching any  language is lost sight of in the pro-French, anti-French  passion of the moment.  It could be that what we will need are Japanese Immersion and Chinese Immersion programs as well as French, if  the education our children receive is to be useful and relevant in the 21st Century. Instead we can neither agree how  to teach one of the nation's founding languages nor do it  successfully.  Notably missing from the debate, with one or two exceptions, are the professional educators. A short news item  this week tells us that the Teachers' Union was to discuss  French Immersion recently but couldn't do so because  they failed to get a quorum at their meeting.  It is at times like these when professional educators fail  to offer any position on an educational matter that tears at  the fabric of their community that one questions their oft-  vaunted 'professionalism'.  In the long terms this is a serious question of educational philosophy and if there is to be protracted and painful debate the voice of the educator should be heard.  $^ <��� *����� "*���'��� ���> ��yv *v  l��^loJ^^n  ���^ ^^y=y^:cs  5 YEARS AGO  Herbicide that has been sprayed over the heads of  Sunshine Coast residents by helicopter in recent weeks  has been banned in other places in Canada, the United  States and Sweden because it was proven to promote  cancer and cause birth defects. Yet local officials have  been doubling the permits to dump more 24-D into our  air, water and vegetation.  In declaring the Sunshine Coast a nuclear free zone  we have joined with over 500 locally declared NFZ's in  13 countries. Within Canada, 40 municipalities including Vancouver, Toronto, Regina and Cold Lake  Alberta are nuclear free zones.  "Porta-Potties" will be available at Davis Bay beach  this summer if the Sunshine Coast Regional Board  votes to support a recommendation of its Public  Utilities Committee.  10 YEARS AGO  Doug Roy resigns his position as Sechelt Planner  charging that "the unsystematic and ieaderless manner  in which council now operates in respect to planning,  zonirtg, subdivision and development is totally unsuited  to the circumstances of the day. It is an embarassment  to itselfj>foj$j�� planner and to its citizens."  The alert reaction and driving skill of Richard  Sasaratt averts a near tragedy at Horseshoe Bay. The  truck Sasaratt was driving lost its brakes coming down  the hill into the ferry terminal but Sasaratt was successful in steering it into the rock bluff bringing it to a  stop without injury to anyone. "I could have killed 30 or  40 people at the crowded terminal," Sasaratt said.

The strange case of Farr-  ington Cove Developments  first: Director Gordon Wilson  decides to hold the public hearing in Sechelt because, he tells  the regional board, it is non-  controversial. This despite the  fact there is a serious rift among  the members of his Area Planning Commission on the subject. .  The SCRD then blithely passes  the required by-law stating that  ment. This vaunted ability of  the town's could not save a fir  tree on Gower Point Road recently, which was cut down to  improve the view of a private  development though it stood on  town property and shaded older  residences.  Not only that developer has  seen fit, apparently, to wage  war on trees on property not his  own. Oceanmount Developments cut down some trees not  theirs recently. Clerk-  Administrator Goddard had  something strange to say about  that: "They thought the trees  were on town land," said Goddard. Is the implication here  that for some developers, those  favoured by the town, it is all  right to cut trees down which  are on town property?  There has been altogether too  much vilification of Alderman  Collins lately, it seems to me. I  think he should have resigned  parently *a witch hunt. Apart  from anything else it is ill-  advised to give those who seek  to destroy a public official support arid credibility.  Then we have the latest B.C.  Ferry fiasco. A boat just out of  refit, the second in a few weeks  -remember the Queen ofAlber-  ni and the Nanaimo dock -  breaks down. The vessel is  transferred to the Horseshoe  Bay/Langdale run and we are  told it must limp back and forth  for five weeks on one engine at  the height of the tourist season.  Apparently, with ferry traffic  booming as never before, there  are no standby vessels which  can cover for the cripple.  All of our local governments  and chambers of commerce  should be writing with one voice  to the provincial government to  protest this outrage. Let us hope  they will, if they can get off the  beaches and the golf courses to  do something more productive  and immediate than to bicker  over their rival jurisdictions and  territories.  Then there was the lady, an  ardent NDP'er, who dashed into our office with a menacing  little letter to the chamber of  commerce about restructuring,  apparently of one mind with  Howe Sound Pulp on the subject. Politics does indeed make  strange bedfellows.  it  wa^, not doing  so  under^when the circumstances of his  duress^1 although a threat of^$jife dictated prolonged absence,  lawsuit had been made if the bylaw was not passed. Hear no  duress, see no duress, feel no  duress?  A few years back we  editorialised there was no  justification for the continued  existence of Area C after the  Sechelt restructuring. Now the  Department of Municipal Affairs agrees with us and Director  Jim Gurney is irate. Careful,  Jim. He who will not bend must  break.  Then we take a look at Gibsons Council: one of the most  compelling arguments for the  dearly sought restructuring the  town seeks is that a municipality  is better able to direct develop-  l&ut one questions the mayor's  judgement in going public with  her resentment.  The fact is that if Collins  chooses, the mayor is going to  have to work with him for the  next two and a half years.  It is also a fact that in the past  few years other aldermen have  been often away for short and  long periods without enduring  castigation by the mayor.  Others have warmed a seat on  council for years, in Mayor  Strom's experience, and done  virtually nothing without condemnation in private or in  public.  It is sad indeed to see elected  officials joining in what is ap-  Tree at  my Window  Tree at my window, window tree,  My sash is lowered when night comes on;  But let there never be curtin drawn [  Between you and me.

That day she put our heads together,  Fate had her imagination about her,  Your head so much concerned with outer,  Mine with inner, weather.  Robert Frost  In praise of the  world's nurses  Nursing is a real skill and  anyone who has ever been  struck down by bodily malfunctions or circumstance and has  sought refuge in a strange and  uncomfortable hospital bed,  can only feel undying gratitude  for those nurses who have  helped ease the discomfort.  I ended up spending a few  days in hospital the year I lived  in Karachi, Pakistan.  It was hot and the Islamic holy month of Ramadan was half  way through its time. Fasting  and other religious demands of  that most sacred 30 days had  cast a strange secrecy upon  Karachi so the city seemed as  alien to me that week as it had  previously been so beautiful.  My hospital room was  painted blue and had three  doorways, two of which faced a  wide veranda overlooking a  courtyard, and a third which  joined my room with the corridor. At first I passed the time  by trying to guess which doorway the two young nurses  assigned to me would enter by.  In reality the room was bright  and airy and very comfortable  but I complained nevertheless.  The noises about me were too  loud, I told the nurses, and the  incessant chanting from the  neighbourhood mosque was  driving me out of my mind. As  for the slowly revolving ceiling  fan, all it did was push the stifling air straight back towards my  bed. Couldn't they see that?  Actually they couldn't. The  two young nurses looking after  me didn't speak a word of  English. They could, therefore,  ignore my whining quite legitimately and get down to what  they perceived as the very  serious business of making me  better even though I didn't even  feel particularly sick.  First they brought me Ids of  white, moist jasmine flowers  which they hooked around the  bedposts until my bed resembled a floral float and the room  smelted too' sweet to be a  hospital's. They held my hand  and stroked my brow and  brought me glasses of water  straight from the one refridg-  esrator they had oh that hospital  floor so my drinks would be as  cold as possible. And when I  looked particularly sorry for  myself, they put their arms  around me and cooed in a  rhythmic soft Urdu.  These nurses smelted of spices  and fragrant hair oil and  somehow created an illusion of  bright colours even dressed, as  they were, in a nurse's obligatory white. I soon looked forward to their arrival in my room  and the doorway game was  more rewarding.  In the room across the hall  from mine there was ah elderly  Pakistani lady whom I could see  and wave to if we both happened to be sitting up in bed leaning  forward at the same time. She  also seemed determined I  should feel better as soon as  possible and contributed to my  recovery by sending me her  visitors.  No sooner had somebody  knocked on her door than I  would hear what were apparently instructions to take whatever  gift or salutation were meant  for her over to the memsahib  across the hall. The visitors  always came, graciously and  smiling, adding more flowers to  my collection and then sitting  quietly in my room.  I enjoyed the company and  once, on waking from a nap, I  found six people waiting patiently around my bed to wish  me well. They had been anxious  for me to open my eyes, they  said, because one of them spoke  English well enough to explain  to me how to look after myself  properly in the heat and thus  avoid ending up in hospital  again. The doctors know  nothing, they said.  The nurses, the old lady and  the visitors, of course, soon  dispelled whatever strangeness  Karachi had acquired during my  short bout of melancholy, and  since those days I have often  thought about the very casual  nature of their kindness.:  When those amongst us motivated by a desire to comfort and  to heal withdraw their services,  as nurses have today in B.C., it  is a sad and a troubling thing.  Perhaps the time has come  for the rest of us to return to  them now a fair measure of  compassion.  _��s____  ���BtUt:  R'tBBON  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News, June 26,1989  """X  Editor:  As noted in a recent issue of  the Coast News, the SecHelt  Council found it necessary, on  legal grounds, to rescind a decision not to permit a pro life rally and walk in the town of  Sechelt.  I do not intend to comment  on that decision but am writing  in the expectation that the same  concern for freedom of speech  and assembly which prompted  coverage of the council's action  will allow me to provide some  information on the rally and  walk which did in fact take  place June 17.  The rally was held in the  parking lot of the Driftwood  Inn and despite the inclement  weather, some 80 people congregated there and later walked  through the town to St. Mary's  Hospital and back. The rationale for holding the event the  day before Father's Day was to  stress that fathers also have a  responsibility to their unborn  children.  While many factors enter into  the decision to chose abortion,  it is not infrequently the case  that some feel they have been  pressured into that decision by  husbands or boyfriends who are  unwilling to take responsibility  for bringing a child into the  world.  It is also true that men as well  as women are affected  psychologically by abortion.  Lawrence Chambers, secretary  of Sunshine Coast Pro Life,  read from an article based in  part on research by sociologist  Arthur B. Shostak of Drexel  University in Philadelphia.  Shostak interviewed 1000  men at university campuses and  in waiting rooms of US abortion clinics and found that 81  per cent thought about their unborn child, felt isolated and ignored at the clinic and were  angry at themselves for letting  the abortion take place.  The article also drew attention to a support group in Vancouver for men affected by  abortion.  Dr. Frank Murphy of Powell  River was the keynote speaker  and he expressed, as his opinion, that the convenience of  abortion on demand allows men  to 'exploit and discard' women  as never before.  He called on rally participants to send a message to  the medical profession that the  'killing of healthy fetuses in the  uteri of healthy females has  nothing to do with the practice  of medicine'.  Noting that Canada currently  shares with China the distinction of having absolutely no  restrictions on abortion, Murphy also urged his listeners to  become involved in the political  party of their choice and work  for laws protecting the sanctity  of life from conception to  natural death.  While the rally was somewhat  unique in that it focussed on the  role of men in the abortion  issue, it was not forgotten that it  is women who are most visibly  and directly involved in the  For a referendum  Editor:  I arrived home from the  School Board meeting last Tuesday to hear once more that I am  discriminating against the  French. M. Gareau was emphatic, "point finale". I have  been called bigoted, racist and  xenophobic over the past few  months.  At the meeting!.sa,w and  heard fear expressed by board  members. I listened to trustees  tell of anxiety over intimidating  phone calls. I heard our schools  called prisons. The superintendent's office was picketed.  It appears to me the issue is  grossly out of hand. This has  caused our elected officials to  further 'fuzzify' the issue by  making the decision not to  make a decision.  The French Immersion issue  has been added to the broader  discussion of adopting a policy  on alternative programs and bil-  ingualism only after "patient  engagement" in debate.  If I am to wear the label  'bigot', then it is because I hold  blindly and intolerantly to the  belief each and every child holds  a special place in our school  system.  If I am to wear the label  'racist', then it is because I  discriminate   against   anyone  ���. who wishes-to deny^chtidrthat  special place.  And if I am to wear the label  'xenophobe', it is because I fear  a group of people want to place  its demands above the well-  being of all else.  Should this issue be put to  referendum on the next School  Board slate? Then the community at large could make a  decision that seems to have been  taken out of the board's hands.  Whatever the result, at least  there would be a clear mandate  for the board to set policy.  Eudora Bramham  Madeira Park  Support for nurses  Editor:  On behalf of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association, I  wish to express the support of  local teachers for our colleagues  at St. Mary's Hospital, the  members of the BC Nurses'  Union and the Hospital  Employees' Union who are  fighting for fair and equitable  contract settlements, and the  Health Science Association who  are supporting them by honouring picket lines.  We call on the Health Labour  Relations Board to give due  recognition to the invaluable  work of nurses and other  hospital workers and to provide  the salaries, working conditions  and status that will attract and  keep the health care personnel  to ensure a high quality of  health care in this province.  We also call on other local  residents to show their support  for our nurses and hospital  workers.  M.

(Rev.) J. Cameron Fraser  Mayor's viewpoint  Editor:  The newspaper reporters who  regularly attend our meetings  are aware that Alderman Collins has not been in attendance  for some time. I believe it has  reached the point where I must  explain the situation to our taxpayers.  Alderman Collins has accepted employment which has  taken him first to North Vancouver, and now to Valdez,  Alaska. Prior to his departure  for Valdez, it had been my impression that he intended to  resign since he wouldn't be  available to perform his alder-  manic duties.  However, he has not done so  and the burden of performing  his duties has fallen to the remaining members of council  who are now carrying their own  load, plus a share of his.  We have had no official communication from Mr. Collins.  He has not requested leave of  council to miss meetings, nor  has he told us how long he expects to be away.  The Municipal Act permits  an alderman to be absent from  meetings, without consent, for  three months before he can be  declared ineligible for office.  We have no course of action  open to us but to wait to see  how long it is until he returns.  In Alderman Collins' position, it would have been my  choice to resign, since I could  not fulfill my obligation to the  taxpayers. However, Alderman  Collins did not choose to take  that course of action.  Mayor Diane Strom  Cowrie St.:. 'Sechejr  885-2916  -aaaasS);  Store Hours:  Mon: - "Sm.,:  nr  you're invited!

"This tree was the only one  left that provided shade and  privacy. I was very upset to find  they were going to cut it down  and when I protested, I was told  they had their orders."  Their orders, however, did  not come from the Town of  Gibsons. "There was no reason  for the tree to come down,"  Gibsons Clerk-Administrator  Lorraine Goddard told the  Coast News.  Patricia Richardson, owner  of the property rented by  Boutin, also wrote to council  immediately after she heard the  tree had been cut.  "It is with great sadness that  we now realize that Gibsons  seems to have fallen under the  developers' thumb..." she  stated. "It was not enough for  the developers to lay totally bare  their land but found it  necessary, supposedly for the  sake of view, to take down one  tree that shaded and sheltered  houses that had long been part  of the town."  Richardson also states in her  letter, she was informed of the  situation in April and took steps  to register her objections with  the town. She then received  "assurances that everything  would be done to have it (the  trees) remain, topped perhaps,  but not cut down."  "The Richardsons were being  co-operative about having the  tree topped," Goddard said. At  that time, it was thought the  tree stood equally on the  Richardson's land and the  town's road allowance.  On June 7, as soon as Goddard heard what was happening  from Boutin, she took steps to  assure the tree remained standing but it was too late.  "Nobody had asked us about  cutting the tree," she said, "and  I didn't put a sign on it that  said, 'Don't cut me down'."  Mogul later told the Coast  News he knew nothing about  the incident and would investigate it this week.  This is the second incident involving developers cutting down  town trees without prior notice  or permission, Goddard said.  Apparently Oceanmount's  developers cut down some trees  at their site without permission  that happened to be on privately  owned property. "They thought  the trees were on town land,"  Goddard said.  Council discussed sending a  lawyer's letter to the developer  stating the Gower Point tree  was on town property and the  town did not give permission  for it to be cut.  The town will first suggest  that Mogul replace the tree with  nine to 10 feet high Ponderosa  Pines that are presently situated  on South Fletcher but need  transplanting. The cost of this  transplanting will amount to  around $100 to $150 per tree,  Gibsons Maintenance Supervisor Skip Reeves said.  "We have to show we have  regard for trees," Alderman  Lilian Kunstler told council.  Support for bank  At the June 10 council meeting, Gibsons Alderman Lilian  Kunstier's recommendation a letter of support be sent from  council to the Bank of Montreal's head office in Toronto requesting a banking machine at the Bank of Montreal branch  in Lower Gibsons was accepted by council.  Apparently a request from the bank branch for such a  machine has been refused by their head office before.  Kunstler feels a banking machine in that location could  well serve the tour buses, marina visitors and others in Lower  Gibsons without the need, which exists now, of them going  "up the hill".  Re-named  ,,. The Ministry of Transportation and Highways has agreed  to the proposal from Gibsons Council to rename Inglis Road  in order that the name "Inglis" can be used in the Ocean-  mount Subdivision.  The new name suggested for Inglis Road is Bander Road,  named after long-time resident George Bander.  Residents of the neighbourhood will be polled for their opinion of the proposed change in the near future.  Mr. and Mrs. Arnt Hilstad of Glen Road in Gibsons celebrated  their 63rd wedding anniversary with help from their children,  Dariene and Rob McQueen and Stan Hilstad.

Pat came to the Sunshine  Coast School District in  September 1969 and with the  exception of three years in  Sechelt Elementary, has been a  member of the staff of Gibsons  Elementary.  Pat and two colleagues,  Marilyn Giesbrecht and Ann  Dahl, were one of the first  teams to teach in the open area  in Gibsons Elementary and were  the first teachers in the district  to organize a field trip of several  days to an outside destination.  Gibsons Elementary staff  presented Pat with silver earrings and bracelet made by  native artist, Freddie  Shaughnessy of Alert Bay. The  Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Association presented her with  a print, the Nativity Scene, by  native artist Brad Hunt of Gibsons, and from pupils in the  school, a large memory book  with a cover in wiitercolours  done by staff member, John  Lowden.  Pat Craig had a varied career  before entering teaching; she  served in the Air Force and she  worked as a children's nurse in  the lower mainland and in  eastern Canada.  Pat, who has always loved to  travel, hopes to continue plans  for trips abroad.  DOGS AGAIN  From the proprietor of  Magus Kennels comes an admonition to distinguish the  English Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier or Amstaff for  short.  Point taken. Also noted in  the July issue of Dog Fancy a  monthly magazine, an advertisement which said in part,  "Watchdog Kennels, pups  available the year round. The  American Pit Bull Terrier,  United Kennel Club's registry, a  dog assertive enough to take  care of itself and those it loves.''  An accompanying photo  showed Blue Bully at 85  pounds.  A gentleman of Roberts  Creek also took me to task for  seeming to state that all dog  owners are careless in training.  He said "I keep my do&  which is a German Shepherd,  under control at all times but  it's true I can't walk my dog on  the road anymore." Small dogs  on the loose (they can be vicious  too), harass and provoke his  dog, he says.

That and "money hungry  breeders" are a sure source of  public annoyance.

SEASPORT SCUBA  SEASPORT SCUBA  ADVENTURE THROUGH EDUCATION  V/SA  6pm  5567 Dolphin St. Sechelt  a  An unofficial dump site on a  property on Field Road was the  source of some concern last  week when the owner of the  property began burning some of  the old appliances, car wrecks  and BC Hydro transformers  that were lying around his land.  Neighbours contacted Art  McPhee, Provincial Emergency  Program Director for this area.  McPhee contacted Sechelt  Municipal District and Mayor  Tom Meredith, who in turn  contacted Waste Management  and Environment Canada. The  issue w&s the possibility of toxic  substances being released into  the air from the burning. Of  special concern were the contents of the transformers which  often contain PCB's.  Testing done by the Ministry  of Environment showed no contamination of the ground water  but traces of PCB's in the soil,  Meredith told council last  Wednesday.  The ministry will be forwarding its finding to the municipal  district and will monitor the  situation, Meredith told the  Coast News.

Coast News, June 26,1989  ISIii^fflliiSiliiliii  ors  by Larry Grafton  Nurses and supporters picket the entrance to St. Mary's Hospital  in Sechelt in the continuing nurses' strike. ���vern Elliott photo  Although there are activities  lined up for the children of our  area, it would certainly seem  even at this late date, that there  is plenty of room in the course  of the celebration for the participation of our juniors.  This, of necessity, would  have to be accomplished by  volunteer parents or unattached  adults. How about dressed up  pets? Clowns? Solo musicians?  Where are the volunteers?  Nikki Weber is in charge of  entertainment for our portion  of the celebration up until 4 pm,  and I'm sure she'd be elated to  hear from volunteer musicians  who wish to participate. Performances will be scattered in  various areas of the town over  an extended period of time oh  July 1.  The locations covered will be  Wharf Street Mall, The Dock,  Toredo Street Mall, Outdoor  Mall on Trail Ave., Trail Bay  St. Mary's essentials  ; Continued from page 1  5' The complex wage scale pro-  i posed by HLRA would see star-  \\ ting rates for a general duty  \ nurse of $15.07 an hour, in-  <; creasing to $17.96 an hour by  .<; 1991, and ranging up to  > $53,676. a year in 1991 for a  �� head nurse with eight years ex-  '��� perience.   Also   offered  have  * been a variety of premiums for  * certain working conditions; for  * educational upgrading and for  * qualification differentials.  :    Asked to comment on the  I general tone of the relationship  ?��between the administration and  the nurses at St. Mary's, Wright  said,   "They're  good  nurses.  ��:They work hard and I think  ^there is mutual respect between  ; nurses and administration."  ;    Wright went on to say there is  La shortage of nurses all over  North America  as a greater  variety of career choices become  .^available   to   high   school  ����� graduates. An attempt is being  > made to provide a more attrac-  C tive package of higher wages  ���i and more satisfying working  C conditions so as to attract more  > people to the profession.  <��| "One of the complaints  w nurses have," explained  ;?. Wright, "is that they have had  �� to keep up with advancing  .^technology, and up till now  t*there has not been a great deal  jjjof recognition for this.  ��*��� Nursing is different from  pother careers," he went on. "It  ��; has to be made more attractive  ri but at the same time we have to  do it within a cost that society  can afford. If all of the money  and all of the advances are  dumped on the table at the same  time it would be too costly. But  if it were spread out over a  number of years we could  achieve it."  British Columbia Nurses  Union (BCNU) president Pat  Savage in a June 13 press release  said, "Our demands are not excessive but merely bring us into  line with other workers-car  penters at $21.36 an hour,  brewery workers at $21.36 an  at  hour   and   draftpersons  $19.25.  "Nurses in all parts of  Canada are undervalued in relation to their education and  responsibility and the demands  of a 24 hour a day profession."  Wendy Jensen and Marleen  Datima, local spokesmen for  the nurses union, reported that  contract negotiations would  resume at 6 pm on Friday, June  23, and, they said, "Hopefully  we will have good news soon.  We would all like to have this  settled."

They will, however,  follow that up with a meeting of  interested parties as soon as  possible to consider important  revisions to the schedule.  Director John Shaske told  last Thursday's meeting of the  board the new service will be  duplicating the early morning  schedule of both the Maverick  bus and the Gibsons bus in running to the 8:30 ferry. It does  not, he pointed out, provide service for the return of most commuters on the 5:30 ferry from  Horseshoe Bay.  Jim Gurney said the  schedule, "...falls short of what  I expected. It just goes to show  that you can't integrate  paratrahsit and public transit.  We might have to bite the bullet  and support the service that's  there."  The Gibsons bus, he said,  provides excellent service.  Mall and, of course, at Hackett  Park where the talent show will  take place from 2 pm to 4 pm.  A variety of performers and  entertainers (as many as could  be commandeered on a limited  federal budget) will be at these  locations over the course of the  afternoon.  As the floats from the parade  assemble on Dolphin Street,  Mayor Meredith will give a  welcome speech to, not only the  local and visiting dignitaries,  but to all celebrants for the occasion.  Our branch will be manning  the concession stand under the  able directorship of Olive Marshall with her volunteer helpers.  Food and beverages will be  available at reasonable prices.  The seniors will also have  display tables at the park.  Don't miss the fun! Come  and enjoy!  BUS SHELTER  Some may say this is not a  senior's concern but technically  it is, because a great number of  passengers using our local transit system are seniors.  It was drawn to my attention  (and I have personally witnessed  this) that there is simply no  place to sit and no shelter, for  passengers awaiting the arrival  of the bus on Trail Avenue. I  have, on two occasions, seen  passengers sitting on the  sidewalk, who should in no  way, be sitting there awaiting  the arrival of their transportation. Perhaps some civic minded group or organization could  alleviate this situation. How  about it?  YOUR 69ers  I'm sure I can't tell who had  the most fun, but our 69ers sang  their little hearts out for the  Over 80's Tea and for two contingents of the visiting Elderhostel groups on June 14, 20  and 21.  ; The highlight, of course, were  the 'Three Old Maids' performing'the Gilbert iand Sulliyan ren-  uition (with exceptions)'Of the  Three Little Maids.

The  by-law was passed with only  Area F Director John Shaske in  opposition.  When questioned about the  addition of the clause, Wilson  said it was added to clarify that  the board had not made its decision based on any threats made  at the meeting.  "Someone else stood up at  that hearing and said if the bylaw was passed my political  career was down the drain. You  always hear things like that," he  said. "You don't pay any attention to them."  One concern raised by several  members of the delegation was  that the 'character of the  development and the intentions  of the developer have changed  significantly since the original  public hearing' which was held  in 1987.  In his presentation to the  APC of the day, Howatt stated,  "The property has been  operated as a marina and resort  business and has been heavily  subsidized by both of us (Mr.  and Mrs. Howatt) for the past  two seasons."  He claimed that having in  jected substantial capital investment in the property, they had  concluded the business could  not support itself and another  use for the property was needed.  The people who attended  Thursday's meeting, however,  alleged land flipping. No  development has taken place on  the property so far and Howard  White, spokesman for the  group, claims the property was  put up for sale, shortly after the  zoning was approved, for three  times the amount Howatt had  paid for it.  Reid explained that once the  zoning and necessary development permits are in place, the  land was worth much more  money.  Another major concern appears to be the proposed sewage  disposal system. 'Department  of Health officials have refused  to guarantee there will be no  sewage runoff to surrounding  properties...' the petition states.  Having been refused a voice  at the board meeting, the  residents have limited recourse.  They plan to appeal to the  minister of Municipal Affairs  and the ombudsman. They will  be reactivating the Pender Harbour Ratepayers Association  and holding a public information meeting on the rezoning.  by Myrtle Winchester 883-9099  Judging by the size of Pender  Patter, it seems there's very little  happening in Pender Harbour  this week but that's far from the  case.  Last week three controversial  meetings were held and I'll  refrain from stating my opinion  on any of them. However, if  you're looking for conversation  topics, here they are:  In Sechelt the SCRD gave  third reading to the Farrington  Cove rezoning ammendment  and the School Board met to  discuss French education. Back  home in Pender Harbour, the  waterworks board had its annual general meeting and people  were calling it the South Pender  Harbour Fireworks District  AGM.  A comment on Tuesday  night, the evening of both the  School Board and Waterworks  metings:  "It's like living in Vancouver  and there's a one-night-only  performance at both the Orpheum and the Queen E. How  do you decide?"  CLINIC MEETING  The  Pender  Harbour  and  District Health Clinic Auxiliary  will meet tonight at 7:30 pm. in  the clinic.

The Lioness Club will have a  table of baked goods at the meet  and tables can be rented from  Hans Schroeder, 883-2573.  SCOUTS  Anyone interested in supporting the scouting program this  September by volunteering as a  leader is asked to contact Patty  Gaudet,   883-9290,   or   Ron  Malcolm, 883-9015.  COUGAR  Three two year old cougars  have been removed from Klein-  dale in the past two weeks but  it's suspected the mother is still  in the area. There have been frequent sightings of two other  cougars near Silver Sands.  If you see a cougar, call  Wildlife Control Officer Dave  Pierce in Sechelt. He'll arrange  to have tracking dogs brought  in from Abbotsford and will try  to capture the cougar so it can  be relocated to Spuzzum.  CONGRATULATIONS  Congratulations to Frank Jr.  and Pam Roosen on the June 13  birth of Katie, a sister for  Michael and grandaughter for  Frank Sr. and Joka.  ASTRONOMY OUTING  The Sunshine Coast  Astronomy Club will hold a  public viewing on July 1 in the  Pender Harbour Senior Secondary School yard, beginning at  9:30 pm.  The club will provide several  deep-space telescopes that are  capable of magnifying a subject  200 times under ideal conditions, and the group hopes to  get a look at Saturn and distant  galaxies and nebulae.  Pluto and Neptune may be  visible, along with the comet  Borsen-Metcalfe, and those  willing to wait until 2:30 am.  can expect a spectacular view of  the moon.  The club, which was founded  last September, now has about  34 members comprised of  amatures to professionals from  the Sunshine Coast, although  there is little representation  from Pender Harbour and Egmont.

Terry had all her family, six  Mulligans, here for the wedding. A happy reunion followed.  There were people visiting  from .Arizona, Texas, New  York, Little Penticton and  Alberta.  What do Mulligans do when  they all get together? They sing.  The Bella Beach Motel was  most accommodating and must  have enjoyed the melodious  gathering of kin as no one objected.  The family's new member,  Tom, will have to learn to warble like the rest.

Before the meeting, board  trustees Andy Hayes distributed  copies of a one page brief headed, 'Recommendations...pertaining to serious on-going problems within the SPHWD' that  criticized the operational procedures and record-keeping of  the waterworks and requested a  STOP  SMOKING  at  COAST  IMPRESSIONS  5545-D Wharf Road, Sechelt  WED.

At the start of the meeting,  retired Maintenance Supervisor  Frank White distributed copies  of a one page "response to  criticism by trustee Andy  Hayes" that described improvement programs initiated in the  past six years.  Chairman Ken MacDonald  stressed that the brief  distributed by Hayes was not  from the board and that the  board knew nothing about it.  Art Alexander commended  Indian Isle Construction owner  Don White for the high quality  of work performed for the  board, an unexpected statement  that brought resounding applause from the floor.  A $2000 connection charge  for each new lot in the waterworks district was discussed and  remarks included Bill White's  proposal a minimum of $5000  be charged to newly-developed  lots.  Bill White (no relation to  Frank and Don White) continued to compare the development situation in Pender Harbour with that of Vancouver,  referring to offshore investment  and the controversial Whittaker  property known as Farrington  Cove. ;���������.,  After discussion new board  members were elected to replace  retiring members Andy Hayes  and Ken MacDonald. Owen  Van Solkema and Bernard Bennett were elected and, at a directors' meeting later in the week,  Bennett was named chairman of  the board.

TRAvfi  Professionals   ,  886-2000  _ Coast News, June 26,1989  11.  by Dick Kennett  The Chamber of Commerce  did its homework well recently  in chosing its citizens of the  year, and Roberts Creek sons  and daughters of the pioneers  and early settlers are well  represented in Barry Reeves and  in particular, in one of those  'Husdon' gals, Bernice  Chamberlin.  Rummaging back in time,  through what I call the Whit-  worth Chronicles, George  Husdon, in 1910, walked, by  way of Gibsons, to his preemption far above what is now  Crowe Road.  In 1911 Violet Husdon  became the first teacher at the  newly opened Elphinstone Bay  School at the corner of Flume  Road and the Highway. She  was the first in the area to own  and play a piano.  The story is well known when  a dance took place at a new  barn at Wilson Creek. Her  piano was loaded on a two  wheeled cart and drawn by  horse to the dance where she  furnished the music. Later she  returned home with piano intact.  In 1917 the family was living  on their 40 acres just west of  r conor  Flume Road on the highway  next to what is now the provincial campsite grounds.  Bernice and her sisters were  born and raised there through  their young lives and I went to  school with Rita in 1936 and on  more than one occasion walked  Jean home after dancing at the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall.  Many years later iri the 1960's  I had a few tugs at my heart strings as I sold the old 40 acre  Husdon farm for, in my view,  the Husdons represented a truly  liberal family.  Right? Henry Hilda Bernice  Chamberlin, right? Jean  McKeating, Rita Peterson, and  of courser Violet Wiiiegarden!  At Harmony Hall  by Frankie, 886-3504  Nine members of. OAPO  Number 38 drove to Sechelt  June 21 to visit the B.C.  Telephone Museum.  If you have never heard of  such a place, make some enquiries and a visit will be well  worth the effort. A great place  to take your visitors this summer. Telephone (business)  885-2371.  It is in the B.C. Tel building  across from the post office and  there will be a display of same in  the Trail Bay Mall August 15 to  August 20.  The tour of the facilities was  very informative and entertain  ing, thanks to Terry Algiers  who very capably handles the  centre. Appreciation, Terry,  and success in your future  endeavours from Rena, Amy,  Myrt, Win. Grant, Dorothy  Cruice, Ralph and Vi Lyons,  'Dawn'and myself.  We had a delightful lunch in  the Village Restaurant listening  to "Tales of Yesteryears" topped off with a birthday cake for  Dawn.

The first event of the fair will  be the Car Rally which starts at  6 pm on Friday, July 7. Participants will meet at Coopers  Green.  Entrance fee is $10 and each  car should have a driver,  navigator, map, flashlight and  paper and pen.  On Saturday morning, July  8, the Government. Wharf will  be a busy spot with the Kids'  Fishing Derby from 9 until 11  am. There are two categories:  four to eight, and nine to 12.

Those planning to compete in  the trophy run should be at  Connor Park on Northwood  Road on Sunday morning at 10  am. The run will be from Connor Park to Coopers Green.  A pancake breakfast will be  Antenna  to bring  nature  benefits  The proposed location of a  BC Tel antenna on Pender Hill  may result in some benefits to  nature lovers in that area, Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) Planner Sean Reid told  the regional district parks committee last week. BC Tel has requested permission to erect the  antenna to serve future needs in  servicing Texada Island, Nelson  Island, Thormanby Island and  the Agememnon Channel area.  Before supporting the company's application for a crown  land lease for that purpose, the  regional district had Stan Dixon  and Reid inspect the area. Their  support will be contingent on  BC Tel's agreement to certain  conditions.  Reid specified the exact location the antenna could be  situated to minimize any impact  on the view both of Pender Hill  and from Pender Hill.  The hydro cable to service the  antenna will also have to be laid  according to very specific requirements, where it will have  the least impact.  Of some benefit to the area,  will be the necessity of building  a helicopter pad near the antenna, which Reid says will serve as  a viewing platform. The  regional district will also request  a path be constructed and maintained to the summit.  The parks committee voted to  recommend acceptance of  Reid's suggestions.   ���'-;;  served at 9 am on Sunday morning, July 9, and will be followed by the official opening of the  fair at 11 am.  'Something for Everyone'  has been the theme over the  years and this year is no exception. Be sure to be there and enjoy the whole weekend.  If you have any questions or  would like further information  give Carol Adams a call at  885-7511.

Mayor's Task Force  by _3Jen Frith  An action plan for the  Mayor's Task Force on Drugs  was established at the June 21  meeting of the task force, held  in Gibsons Council Chambers,  to which interested community  members had been invited. Approximately 20 people, including committee members,  were present.  The plan includes participation in various activities that  stress the unwillingness of  members of the task force to  tolerate the illegal aspects of  drug use and trafficking in this  community.  These activities would include  the writing of letters to the  judges trying local drug cases to  press for sterner sentences on  drug convictions.  It is also important, the task  force feels, to send delegations  from the committee to attend  court during drug trials.' This is  not to influence the judge,  Mayor Strom said, but to let the  person standing trial know that  members of the community are  watching.  The task force is also planning to react to the sentences  passed by the court, if such  sentences are deemed inappropriately lenient, with a letter-  writing campaign to relevant  politicians, etc.  Mayor Diane Strom will involve herself with any political  action necessary in the plan-  while grant applications and  other activities which fall under  publicity, enforcement, education, treatment and encouragement to support groups such as  Mothers Against Drunk Drivers  and student groups will be  tackled by other members of the  task force.  Apparently $800,000 in provincial grant money is available  to various groups throughout  B.C. which are attempting to  deal with drug problems in their  communities.  "I know we've taken the  right step before our drug problems become as bad as those in  Toronto and Montreal," Mayor  Strom said. "It is very fortunate  we've had the community  responding to these meetings."  So far the Legion has agreed  to donate.$300 to Crimestoppers immediately with a further  $300 to come in the near future.  A sign declaring the Sunshine  Coast drug free is also being ar  ranged and a "letter tree" for a  letter-writing campaign is being  organized.  The task force also decided to  invite RCMP Drug Awareness  Co-ordinator Jim Simpson and  Federal Crown Counsel Don  Fairweather to address the next  meeting of the committee.  "People are talking about the  task force," Mayor Strom said.  "Maybe it's still something to  laugh at but more people are at  least talking about it."  Beware of children  Motorists around Roberts Creek are asked to watch out for  school children who will be busy on Tuesday afternoon picking up the litter beside the community's roads as part of a  clean up campaign.  Between 1:30 pm and 3 pm drivers are asked to be particularly careful along Beach Avenue, Highway 101, Flume  Road and Roberts Creek Road.  ^d':.'v^  ,'/��� i #,;�����*���   **  y/yyy  ������    .      #  my  ��� _   i;.-...i;  o V...   ;;  ?Voot  Co*?  ;0��9S  .  nv  \\! mA!  fT.-'-i \  *  Bar  i-v-r.'.

I knew Canon Greene as a  neighbour, a friend and a colleague for I worked with him as  secretary of the Sunshine Coast  Housing Society for the first  seven years of its history. The  story of his 40 years as a Marine  Missionary is now history.  By 1966 he was retired and  living at his Redrooffs Road  home but he had one more  dream to realize. He was concerned that since the new  hospital had been built in  Sechelt, the senior citizens cottages which he had built earlier  at Garden Bay were now too  isolated and too far from  medical help.  So at the age of 77 he started  working on the solution beginning with the formation of the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens'  Housing Society.  The Society started with no  funds and I recall that when we  had decided to purchase the  three acres of land on which  Green Court now stands, we  didn't know quite where to turn  to raise the $1000 which Sechelt  Lands needed as a deposit.  However, this was a cause close  to the heart of local people and  memberships and donations  started to roll in.  On looking through my scrap  book I see that the Sunshine  Coast lions came through with  a donation of $706.35 which  they had raised by their birthday calendar project. They also  gave practical help in clearing  the land. This was the kind of  help received from many  sources which enabled the project to succeed.  Alan Greene lived long  enough to see Greene Court  established and the first 24 units  completed.  You may recall that in the  poem 'If', Kipling lays down a  code of conduct for his son to  follow through life and one of  the concepts he stressed was "If  you can talk with crowds and  keep your virtue, or walk with  kings nor lose the common  touch." It always seems to me  that this was exactly what made  Alan Greene so special.  He had the love and respect  of many in high places as well as  the friendship of loggers,  fishermen and settlers along the  isolated inlets and islands of our  coast.  A devout and godly man,  throughout bis life Alan Greene  had a tremendous consciousness  of an unseen hand guiding the  ship of his destiny through all  the adventures, dangers and dift  ficulties of his life. He was con-;  vinced that he had been guided  through the years by one who  knew what was best for all of  us.  ma  Mayors' Walk  The second annual Mayors' Walk for Africa, held on Sunday, June 11 in Vancouver with representatives from both  Gibsons and Sechelt attending, raised an impressive $84,028  for relief and development projects in Africa.  Creekmouth  . In the ongoing negotiations to aquire the piece of property  at the mouth of Roberts Creek, Jim Gurney told the Parks  Committee last week the regional district has made a counter  offer of the appraised value of the property, with some conditions attached, in response to the owner's counter offer two  weeks ago.  Bob Michor, acting on behalf of the owner, told the board  two weeks ago they would accept $100,000 for the property.  The owner is currently out of the country on bis honeymoon  and has not responded to the board's most recent offer.  Teaching of French  Trustees debate methods  by Rose Nicholson  ?T-  T The Board of School Trustees  has decided to make another attempt to resolve the issue of  French Immersion in this  district's schools. Trustees appear to be unanimous in their  support for the teaching of  French, but are not agreed on  the method.  At last week's public meeting  on June 20, lengthy discussion  revolved around the recommendations brought forward by  District Superintendent Clifford  Smith at a previous meeting.  A motion brought forward  by Trustee Shawn Cardinall  proposed the board develop  policy   regulations   for   the  establishment of alternative  programs; develop, a policy on  bilingualism; reaffirrhthe intent  of policy number 6142 (a committment to French Immersion)  and work to resolve such concerns.  The motion passed with the  support of Trustees Chapman,  Cardinall, Joe and Adams,  while Trustees Clayton, Lloyd  and Stewart voted against it.  Chairman Maureen Clayton  outlined her concerns about the  problems of bussing, housing,  dilution of resources, quality of  access to tax dollars, future  costs, recruitment of teachers,  disproportionate use of administrative time and a school  within a school.  >*���.  '".*����  "These are the issues;'" she'  said. "By reaffuTning the intent  of our earlier poTfcy on French  Immersion, we are just saying*  we can do it. And we can do it if  we say to heck with the costs.  What we are faced with are extreme costs for a particular program."  Last Tuesday's public  meeting, attended by more than  250 people, showed once again  the intense interest in the issue  shown by the public. Many  trustees commented on the  numerous phone calls they had  received since the previous  board meeting and all agreed on  the need for more time to.  resolve the complex issues raised.  **i-  ly 1;1989  Celebration Day  RACES  9-11 am  9:30 am  10:45-11  11:15 am  11 am  12 noon  1:30 pm  2-4 pm  - Pancake Breakfast (Lions), the Dock  - Tennis for boys and girls - Hackett Park  - Fly Past by Tyee  - RCAF Buffalo Aircraft Fly Past  - Parade: Wharf to Cowrie St. to  Ocean Ave. to Hackett Park (Dolphin St.'  there to be parked and admired.  - O'Canada, Malcolm Shanks,Hackett Park,  - Official Greeting by Sechelt Mayor  Tom Meredith and dignitaries.

' ���:*~^r>~  Sergeant Ed Hill of the Gibsons RCMP at work on one of his  paintings. ���Ellen Frith photo  Despite Herb's outraged  denials, the first degree murder  charge is duly laid/ Inevitably,  the case comes to trial. The  evidence is circumstantial to say  the least and Herb nurses a thin  hope that the jury will believe  his version of the story. But the  prosecution, aided and abetted  by Manning, has a trump card  up its sleeve. It produces a surprise witness who claims to have  both seen and heard Wilson  threaten Cox on the Bridge of  Sighs, from a window in the  prison kitchen. Given the layout  of the LA County Jail, this is a  physical impossibility but the  perjured testimony is duly  entered into evidence over  Herb's strenuous objections.  He recalls the incident bitterly.  "Walter Hornbuckle, a  prisoner in the jail who testified  against me, was later employed  at a fashionable Pasadena hotel  and was wined, dined and taken  to theatres by Manning when he  was supposed to be serving a six  month jail sentence. Horn-  buckle could not see things on  the Bridge of Sighs from the jail  kitchen as he testified..."  Hornbuckle's testimony,  however spurious it may be,  serves to convince the jury.  After due deliberation, they  return a unanimous guilty verdict. A crushed Herb Wilson is  returned to his cell. Things were  sticky enough before but now  he is facing a death sentence.  Herb's lawyers launch an immediate appeal against the conviction. Pending its outcome, he  is kept at the County Jail but  transferred downstairs to tank  number three, a maximun  security section where other  convicted murderers are housed. His fellow cellmates are  mostly unregenerate killers of  the worst order. Things are getting progressively more  untenable and his attorneys  hold out little hope of the conviction being overturned. There  is nothing for it but to try  another break.  to be continued.  Policeman and artist  by Ellen Frith  When Sergeant Ed Hill of the  Gibsons RCMP is out of  uniform, it isn't immediately  apparent, of course, what he  does for a living. And, if asked,  he'll say he's an artist before  he'll admit to being a policeman  only because, "it makes for  more interesting conversation."  Sergeant Hill has been in the  RCMP for 21 years so he is well  and truly a policeman, and a  good one by all accounts. He is  also a good artist as his competent and popular prints of West  Coast scenes which hang in,  among other places, the Show  Piece Gallery in Gibsons can attest.  And while these two occupations might appear to be poles  apart, he says, both require sensitivity, patience, skill and confidence to do well. "Whatever  conflict there might be," he  says, "is in everybody else's  mind."  It was while living in Tofino  on the west coast of Vancouver  Island that the policeman also  became an artist. There, Hill's  daily foot patrols took him by  the studio of West Coast native  Indian artist Roy Henry  Vickers. Soon, even on his days  off, Hill was dropping by to  watch Vickers work.  "I liked his work," Ml said,  "and I watched how he did it,  and I watched and watched and  watched for probably a year  and a half. He and I became  friends and fishing buddies.  Then I thought, well, I'll pull a  fast one on Roy here and I'll  design a picture and paint it in  his style and frame it and put it  up and see what he thinks.  "So I started the painting and  I had it three quarters done  when he happened over one day  and he caught me working on it.  'What are you doing here,' he  said, and he grabbed the painting, looked at it and ripped it  up. 'If you're going to simulate  my work,' he said, 'you should  do it properly'."  Vickers then gave Hill a couple of brushes and some tubes  of paint and began instructing  him on how to do the Vickers'  style of painting correctly.  As a style, it is unique, of  simple lines, brilliant blocks of  colour and uncomplicated  forms. Vickers' following is extensive and in 1987, a high point  in his career came when the provincial government presented  Queen Elizabeth with one of his  original paintings. In other  words, he was, for Hill, a tutor  of some note.  So, with Vickers' instruction,  Hill finished his first painting,  which was of a heron on a piling. He framed it, hung it on the  wall and "was satisfied", he  said.  "Later we were sitting, relaxing on a beach and Roy said,  'You know that painting, you  could print that, and sell it'.

To prove his point, Vickers  had Hill's painting printed  himself and provided approximately $3000 necessary to do  the job. "He then put it up in  his gallery," Hill said, "and  that print has sold out and there  are copies of it in Japan,  Australia, Germany, all over  the world."  Although Hill's style remains  reminiscent of his teacher's, he  has long since branched out to  develop several aspects which  are   uniquely  his   own.   And  neither do his painting echo the  native Indian motif which is  very strong in Vickers' work.  "One of the most important  things an artist must have," Hill  says, "is confidence to show his  work, and Vickers gave me  that."  Since then Hill has been painting and prints of his work have  sold and although he doesn't  really paint to sell, he says, it  makes it "a nice hobby".  Hill lives in Gibsons with his  wife, Joy, and children  Melanie, 14, and Bryson, 11.

As  years pass, we invest less and  less energy into pursuing  idealistic plans and eventually  find ourselves handing down  the 'who said life was fair' and  ���it's time to face reality' lectures  to younger, less cynical family  members.  There are times, though,  when it's well worth collecting  the remnants of those naive ambitions, dusting them off and  allowing yourself to consider  the possibility that they just  might still be worth considering,  at least in a revised form.  Every 12 years, Jupiter  returns to the place it was  located in the sky when you  were born (called your Jupiter  return). It may only spend a  couple of weeks in that area but  it's a couple of weeks when  dreams have the best chance of  becoming reality.  During the month of July,  Jupiter will be in the last seven  degrees of Gemini. Anyone  bom in June 1930, May 1942,  August 1953, April and May  1954, August 1965 through  May 1966, July or August 1977  or January through April 1978  should re-evaluate the potential  in some of those discarded  dreams because this is your  Jupiter return.  It's also a great time to make  new plans and set new goals.  Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and abundance. It  represents a subtle energy, commonly known as good luck. The  time of your Jupiter return  should be one when opportunity  comes looking for you. Of  course you don't need to take  advantage of it, if you prefer to  do things the hard way.  Festival  Pavilion  is 1989  The Seventh Annual Festival  of the Written Arts moves into  its new quarters this ^ear, the  brand new Festival Pavilion at  the Rockwood Centre.  A post and beam, cedar-  shake roofed, 550-seat, open air  pavilion, it will be opened on  Thursday, August 10 at 7:30  pm, just one half hour before  the award winning team of  Robertson and Cullen, better  known as Double Exposure,  opens the festival itself.  What follows are three days  of the best of Canadian writing  with Pierre Berton, June  Callwood,. Neil and Karen  Dawe, Bill Deverell, Joe  Garner, Don Hunter, Charles  Lynch, Ken Mitchell* Jean  Pare, John Pass, Candace  Savage, Doris Shadbolt, Sharon  Thesen, Betty Waterton and  Howard White.

But if you're a little weary of  struggling for everything you  get, this marks a time when you  should open yourself to  whatever the universe may  throw at you.  Most people want to know  about money. Is this the time to  buy lottery tickets? Sure, why  not? But it's likely that the good  luck will come in some less  dramatic form. It may be you'll  meet someone, who introduces  you to someone who has the job  you've been wanting for years  and just happens to be leaving  it.  You might begin the chain of  actions that leads to a new  career, or the love of your life.  You could conceive a child who  will bring you more happiness  than any lottery winnings.  The point is, from this narrow perspective, you just can't  tell what's an important link in  the chain of events that will lead  you to real personal fulfillment.  So don't limit yourself to ambiguous ambitions like winning  the lottery. Get specific about  what you want in life and from  life. Write it down in point  form, just so you have a focus  for your will. And then open  yourself.  During the time of your  Jupiter return, the slightest  things can lead somewhere  wonderful and those long-  forgotten dreams just, might  manifest in material form.  x,��  Thursday   figfe  Friday     Saturday      I^JD  Written Arts Festival  Canadian cookery  You'll be in for a rare treat  on Sunday, August 13, if you  attend the talk by Jean Pare  followed by the Old-fashioned  Tea.  As usual the Festival of the  Written Arts is featuring a  Canadian cookbook writer and  this year they've chosen Jean  Pare of the Company's Comm-  ing cookbooks.  Born and raised during the  Depression years in Irma, a  small town in eastern Alberta,  at an early age Jean Pare was  encouraged to cook by her  mother. By the time she was  married with four children of  her own, she had perfected her  skills.  In 1963, when her children  were all in school, she  volunteered to cater for the 50th  anniversary of the Vermilion  School of Agriculture for over  1000 people. She drafted friends  and neighbours to work for her  and the result was such a success  that she launched a catering  business she worked at for 18  years.  Those   years   of   catering  taught her a lot about cooking.  ~yyyir*jM  JEAN PARE  She discovered that a good  menu doesn't have to be complicated and the best recipes require few ingredients and little  time.  Her first cookbook was  Company's Coming: 150  DeNtious Squares. Not realizing  first printings of books in  Canada never exceed 5000  copies, Jean and her family contracted a publisher in Regina to  print 15,000 copies and then set  out to sell them.  In five weeks the book was a  best seller and for the next six  years Jean released a new title  each year. By 1987 the company  was publishing two titles a year.

Ah! the menu. Seafood, pastas, steaks, veal - the mind  lingers over each entree.  My wife, predisposed always to pasta, goes for the prime  rib instead, already imagining the juicy and tender morsels yet  to come.  This must be an evening of venture and dare. Normally a  solid steak and potato man, I am drawn to the sauteed  prawns with leeks in wine sauce and so order.  While perusing the excellent dessert menu and sipping our  cool drinks of tonic and orange juice, we are pleasantly interrupted by the waiter with our meal.  For myself I'm greeted with a tray filled with prawns and  sauce surrounded by a baked potato, sweet carrots and a  slice of watermelon.  As I observe my wife's plate I'm not surprised that she's  delighted with her meal.  I didn't want dinner to end. The combination was perfect  and we both enjoyed our venture because of the unique menu  selections we made for ourselves.    v  Something ventured - something gained!

Golf & Country Club  Curling this time of year?  You bet. Now is the time to  think about enjoying your  winter as much as you enjoyed  playing slow pitch this summer.  Curling is a team game with a  social component after the  game, much like slow pitch. It is  an opportunity to meet new  friends and put away a few long  winter hours in a very enjoyable  fashion. <  Is is a hard game to learn?  No, definitely not. A few hours  of instruction before the season  begins will get the duffer, we  call them (green curlers),  started.  The equipment is not very expensive either. This is definitely  an affordable game and you  have to experience it to find out  how much fun it can be.  What do you need for equipment, you might ask? Most of  your equipment can be rented  from the club for a very  nominal amount, but if you  choose to buy, you will need a  broom, a pair of curling shoes  and a warm sweater to get you  started.  The whole outfit can be purchased for under $100.  To complete a curling game  takes about two hours. Then  there is an opportunity to enjoy  a couple more hours in the  lounge with your friends.  It makes a nice once-a-week  outing and before you know it,  winter is gone and it is time for  slow pitch again.  Does the curling club have  room for me? Yes, we certainly  do have some time in the  schedule for you and your  friends. Come out and join us.  We love the game and we  think you will too.

Five of them sing and  howl from two mesh cages in  the back of Wildlife Control  Officer Dennis Pemble's truck.  It is 11:30 am., and the dogs  are at Geoff Crowther's property in Pender Harbour to track a  cougar that killed 12 chickens  and two roosters. The predator  was sighted four hours ago.  Also on the hunt is District  Conservation Officer Dave  Pierce of Sechdt, who received  Crowther's complaint about the  cougar the previous night. Pem-  ble and his dogs, all government  employees, have come from  their home in Abbotsford.  A single dog is released from  the truck and taken to a spot  under a tree near one of  Crowther's three chicken coops.  It's the spot where Crowther  came within 20 feet of the  cougar who seemed to be beded  down under the tree, perhaps  waiting for another unsuspecting chicken to appear.  The six-year-old Bloodhound  cross, Beau, works like a  machine, a manic vacuum  cleaner. The dog's nose drops to  the ground and zig-zags all over  the area, looking for a fresh  scent. Tail wagging frantically,  the reddish dog follows a  crisscross path throughout  Crowther's yard, pasture and  nearby woods.  Two more dogs are released  from the truck to work with  Beau, and Pierce stations  himself on nearby Highway 101  to warn motorists dogs are  loose, hunting a cougar. Beau  follows a scent across the  highway but is soon back on the  Crowther property. The scent is  now five hours old and the  cougar could be long gone.  Now all three dogs have  disappeared into the thick  woods and Pemble explains that  they will start barking if they  pick up a scent strong enough to  indicate the cougar is nearby.  "Then," continues Pemble,  "they'll chase it up a tree, and  we can trariquilize it.  Hopefully."  As soon as a treed cougar  realizes that it hasn't escaped its  pursuers, it will bound out of  the tree and get back to putting  distance between itself and the  dogs. The cougar is much faster  in the bush than dogs because of  its sure-footedness and ability to  leap and climb. A dog can only  go around a fallen tree but a big  cat will almost fly over it.  The tranquilizer used by the  Wildlife Control Officer will  stun the animal, not render it  unconscious. A loud noise can  bring it back to full alertness  and if this happens both dogs  and men are in danger of attack  by a desperately frightened and  cornered wild animal.  At the Crowther farm all is  quiet, save for occasional anxious clucking of Crowthers'  chickens, the now-subdued  moaning of the two dogs who  remain in the truck, seemingly  brokenhearted that they can't  take part in the excitement.  Then, barking. Distant but  insistent, letting us know they  have a fresh scent and are closing in on the cougar. Hopefully.

As they leave, the worst  thing that can happen on a  cougar hunt happens: rain.  An hour later Pierce returns  to Crowther's to pick up the  truck. The dogs are following a  scent on a high-ground area  about a mile away and the truck  can be taken closer to the action  by way of a logging road.  At the top of the logging  road, overlooking Pender Harbour, Pemble and Beau trudge  up to the truck. Both are tired,  but Beau, who has been chasing  a trail in high gear for several  hours, is exhausted. Panting, he  drinks thirstily from a ditch,  then collapses into the muddy  water. Blood oozes from a cut  near his eye but his tail still wags  at the sound of his name.  A vehicle arrives and Geoff  Crowther approaches the disappointed men and dogs.  "You're in the wrong place,  lads," says Crowther, "I've just  spotted it back at my place  again!"  The hunt resumes at  Crowther's farm, the same  place that it started three hours  ago. Beau and Daisy are working across the highway again  and their voices say the scent is  indeed fresher this time. Pierce  and Pemble stay close to the  dogs, following them through  deadfalls, blackberry whips, ditches and dense bush.  A week ago two young  cougars were taken from this  area. One was shot dead by a  resident and the other was captured by Pierce and Pemble and  relocated to Spuzzum. There  are more cougar sightings in  Pender Harbour than any other  area on the Sunshine Coast and  there have already been 12 this  month.  "I think they're fantastic  creatures," says Dave Pierce,  "and I'd love to relocate them  but it doesn't always work  out."  Both the Conservation Officer and Wildlife Control Officer would rather tranquilize  and relocate the animals, (but  this isnfyalway_ possible, partly  because there is no tranquilizer  gun or dogs in Sechelt. yj���.���.....

Pierce and Pemble are  following the dogs as close as  they can manage now because  it's evident from their loud baying they're closing in.  Then, Beau and Daisy tree  the big cat, a female that's probably two years old. The cougar  is glaring down from a leaned-  over tree, a striking pose.  Pierce entertains the idea of  going back for his camera to get  the photograph of a lifetime but  practicality reigns and the tranquilizer gun is used instead.  It takes 45 minutes for the  drug to take full effect, a critical  period in the cougar hunt. The  animal knows its been shot and  feels it's life is threatened.  The 100 pound cougar falls  from the tree and Beau goes  straight after her, a dangerous  move because an exhausted  Bloodhound-cross is no match  for a panicked cat which isn't  fully tranquilized yet.  Pierce and Pemble move in  and get Beau away from the  cougar's razor-sharp claws but  not before his shoulders get raked several times. Beau will  recover but will carry these battle scars for the rest of his life.  The tranquilizer takes effect  and the cougar is subdued  enough to carry back to the  truck, a distance of four or five  hundred metres. This is the least  glamourous part of the cougar  hunt.  After being taken back to the  lower mainland, the cougar is  transferred to a live-bear trap, a  large cage that can be towed  behind a truck, for the last stage  of her journey. Once in the bear  trap, she is allowed to fully  regain consciousness so she is  able to cope with new territory  after her release in Spuzzum.  For Pierce, Pemble and the  dogs, its just another day's  work.

Coast News, June 26,1989  by Ellen Frith  The cafeteria at Port Mellon stands empty during recent work  il ��� stoppage. See adjacent story. ���Kent Sheridan photo  I  ���"  Tax stance  Gibsons Council agreed at last week's council meeting to  support a request from the Mayor of Quesnel to lobby the  federal government through the Federation of Canadian  Municipalities (FCM) against the proposed federal government sales tax.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler said, "We do support the FCM  in its efforts to fight the tax."  It was moved that a letter, "worded as strongly as  possible," be sent to the FCM expressing Gibsons' concerns.  i -i.  i.'  t  > 7'  i -r  i  V  . 1  > i  i t  i <  2  I  1  !  i  t  !  i t  i  ��  (!  !i  is  i��  i i  !  1  i  i  1  1  t  i ���  \  !  \  i  11  11  ii  11  i  \  i  \  H  II'  )"  ji  )  L  i   i  i  i ��  ! n  l u  l   .  i  .  1  1   >l  1 -  1    '  I    -  1   .���  1   A  I  I u  A two-day work stoppage  for a study session called by the  construction employees living at  Rainy River Camp at the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper (HSPP)  mill in Port Mellon, brought all  work on the new mill to a standstill June 21 amid allegations  from the men of low-quality  food and poor kitchen hygiene  in the camp cafeteria.  Camp members, who took  action on an individual basis  and lost wages to call the study  session, accused the cafeteria,  which is run by Evergreen  Catering of Vancouver, of offering both a monotonous  menu and inferior food. There  were also unsubstantiated complaints of poor water quality in  the cafeteria which allegedly led  to some cases of stomach  cramps and diarrhoea.  A meeting of the business  agents for the 16 unions  representing   the   construction  workers, HSPP Camp Manager  Gordon Brittain, representatives from the B.C. and  Yukon Building Trades Council  (BCYBTQ and others involved  in the dispute resolved the problems late on Wednesday afternoon.  Ron Bonar, BCYBTC camp  committee chairman told the  Coast News, "The complaints  will be addressed in the proper  manner. The men have accepted this and are returning to  work."  HSPP Mill Manager Harry  Cargo said on Thursday all parties had agreed to an auditing of  the food quality and service.  "The auditors will examine the  cafeteria for a week or so," he  said, "and then they can come  back again at any time without  notice."  An Evergreen company  representative, Mike Graf, said  the monthly health inspection  of the cafeteria "has not turned  up anything wrong," and he  sees "no real problems".  "There is always room for  improvement, though," he  said. "We are waiting for the  recommendations of the camp  committee."  Need for Area G questioned  When Minister of Municipal  Affairs, Rita Johnson, wrote  the regional district some months ago, pointing out Area C  has only 123 residents and  might be better incorporated into Area D, the regional board  sent a strong reply stating they  didn't want to lose that area or  its director, Stan Dixon. Last  week, the board received a reply.  "We have considered the  views of the board, as expressed  in your letter, and are prepared  to delay any further action on  this matter until an appropriate  time prior to the local general  elections in 1990. As such, the  term of office of the incumbent  director will not be disrupted,"  Deputy Minister Ken MacLeod  wrote.  Jim   Gurney   expressed  outrage at the response and asked the board to respond to the  letter, once more protesting the  idea of amalgamating the two  areas, which he said are totally  different.  He also repeated that a  population of 123 people hra  rural area is not unheard of in  other places in the province.  The board supported his motion.

The exercise began at 11  am Saturday, June 24 and ended 24 hours later at 11 am Sunday.  Two stations were kept on the  air continuously over the 24  hour period with emergency  power. Club and individual  amateur radio station participants were expected to  establish communications with  as many other stations as possible throughout Canada, the  USA and the rest of the world.  The Sunshine Coast Amateur  Radio Club sponsored the exercise and operated under its  recently   acquired   call   sign  'VE7SCA*. During the  operating period some 500 other  stations were contacted ranging  from the east coast of Canada  and the USA westward to the  Cook Islands in the South  Pacific and Hawaii.

Mulching is an integral part  of civilization.  Practise weed control and  moisture conservation. If the  mulch is organic it will increase  the humus content and fertility  of the soil.  A very thin layer of soil on  top of mulch gives a more attractive appearance. The  weather and the worms do the  rest to break it down.  The home gardener could  take  a  lesson  from  a good  farmer in his vegetable garden.  Weeding is especially important  for a late planted crop, for  weeds quickly overun and take  the nutrients from soil.  You can put them on the  compost heap but not if infested  by insects or disease.  Almost any container, hanging basket or tub can be used  for your own fresh herbs,  grown from seed, or with plants  from the garden centre or plant  sales sometimes.  There's a world of difference  in aroma and taste and  availability when taken from  your garden.  Kids, keep those sunflowers  well watered, give them some  fresh fertilizer, and stake  securely to stop their swaying.  They're a thirsty flower and will  grow larger.

They took place in the tiny com-  munity hall, a former  schoolhouse just east of the  mill.  The films were ordered and  shown by the Plant electrician  -a rather dour man named Earle  Streeter. It was in these early  days that I developed a lifelong  passion for movies.  I became Streeter's unpaid  assistant, helping him with the  equipment and putting up the  garish posters. The films were  mostly B pictures, shown on a  small grainy screen with pauses  between reels. I loved them all,  even the bad ones.  Main social centre for the  adults of the town was the  Seaside Hotel beer parlour,  located across a swinging bridge  on the eastern banks of the  Rainy River. The Seaside Pub,  in the early 40's, was run by a  man named Nourse and - since  it had no competition - did a  roaring trade. As boys, our  main interest in the place was  the fact that Nourse bought  beer bottles for 25 cents per  dozen.  We scrounged the bottles  constantly around the townsite  and they were our main source  of pocket money. We had no  interest in their contents at that  point.  Our first sojourn in Port  Mellon lasted until 1944. In the  summer of that year, Trygg  Iverson was drowned while  cruising timber at the head of  Bute Inlet. Naturally, my  mother, my brothers and myself  were forced to move first to  North Vancouver, then to Gibsons, then back to Vancouver  again.  In 1951, we returned to the  Port Mellon area. Trygg Iverson had left 60 acres of land  directly adjacent to the pulp mill  holdings. We planned to  homestead this property and  eventually log it. Our new home  was a couple of shacks and a  stump house.

Our toilet  facilities consisted of a rickety  outhouse. It wasn't exactly  gracious living but our  overheads were practically nonexistent.  Returning to these childhood  scenes under such totally different circumstances, was an  odd experience. Port Mellon  hadn't changed a great deal in  our absence. The mill was  undergoing reconstruction and  there were many new houses.  The shabby tarpaper shacks  were gone. But, apart from this,  the place was not a great deal  different from the way we  remembered it. The community  was still isolated from the outside world.  My brother Chris and I worked at several jobs around the  area over the next few years  - construction, logging and  finally, in the mill itself. The  Seaside Hotel was busier than  ever, catering to several hundred construction workers in  addition to the townspeople.  We patronized it frequently,  emptying beer bottles now in  stead of selling them, providing  pocket money for a new generation of kids.  For a healthier form of  recreation, Chris and I joined  Frank Zantolas' boxing club.  Frank, a World War Two vet  and former professional prize  fighter, was an expert on the  fine art of, fisticuffs, and eager  to pass along his knowledge.  Over the years, the club produced a number of fine boxers who  went on to compete in the  Golden Gloves. Randy Wiren  and Teddy Hume were the standout sluggers of the club's early  days. In later years, Kenny  Verhulst and Jim Scourgy  would also distinguish  themselves.  Neither Chris nor I were any  great shakes as pugilists, but we  gave it our best shot anyhow.  Our main function was to serve  as sparring partners for the better fighters such as Randy  Wiren and Ted Hume. Teddy  was a good friend of mine but  once he got in the ring, he was  all business. He packed one hell  of a punch.  To be continued...

I  Editor:  Contrary to the observation  of Superintendent Smith that  the difficulty of reaching a clear  understanding of the issue at  hand is the result of persistence  in "searching for answers when  we have yet to come up with the  'right' questions".  As Pericles said, "the great  impediment to action is not  discussion but the want of  knowledge made possible by  discussion."  Thanks to Superintendent  Smith and the others for the  valuable contributions to this  knowledge, there can be no  doubt, now, that a wise decision  on this matter will soon be  evolved.  Question: Is French Immersion an effective program for  learning this language?  Answer: English Immersion  has been going on in the Philippines since 1900 when the country was colonized by the United  States of America. All subjects  in the curriculum were taught in  English from elementary to  university levels. In those days  pupils and students were fined  when caught speaking in a language other than English on the  school premises.  Effective learning of English  was achieved but deteriorated  after Independence in 1945  when 'nationalists' succeeded in  substituting the vernacular for  English as the medium of instruction in Grades 1 to 3.  Private schools, however, are  allowed to adopt the total  English Immersion program but  only the rich have access to such  schools.  Question: Is Early French As  A Second Language (EFSL)  program a more effective and  economical program than  French Immersion?  Answer: In the Philippines  Spanish As a Second Language  program was required for all  secondary and higher education  students.  Despite the provision of com  petent Spanish teachers, adequate teaching materials, and  efficient supervision, the program was discarded after 10  years when it was found to be  ineffective and wasteful. The  learning of Spanish by teaching  it for 40 minutes every school  day as one of the subjects of the  curriculum was an expensive  failure.  REMEMBER:  If you're going to  gamble with your  SEPTIC TANK  I     a flush  |   is better  |    than a  s full house.  As an economist in education, I am afraid that the phasing out of the French Immersion program will be a great  wasteage.  As one who believes in  democratic principles, I am  against curtailing one's freedom  of choice for French as a tool  for acquiring the two major  goals of education, namely: 1.  for consumption, i.e.  understanding the world one  lives in, so that one can contribute to its social, economic,  and political uplift, and 2. for  production, i.e. preparing the  individual for useful participation in the labour force so that  one can contribute to the country's productivity.

SHOP LOCALLY  'A  Editor:  After attending the meeting  of the School Board on June 20,  I would like to submit my  observations.  The workings of a democratic  school board are being impeded  by the pressure tactics of the  placard carrying Parents for  French Immersion.  We, the average taxpayer,  must bear the cost of a program  that feeds the intellectual ego of  parents who can proudly boast  that 'little Johnny is in French  Immersion' while other children  in this district are denied any  early instruction in French.  An alternative for- the  children of Parents for French  Immersion is private school.  Linda Szabados  Position?  Editors note: the following was  received for publication.

Coast News, June 26,1989  On restructuring  by Ellen Frith  \     Much of last week's Restruc-  * turing   Advisory   Committee  meeting took place *in camera'  '  as members felt they wanted to  :  discuss strategy issues, among  other   things,   without   constraint.  Concerning the tallying of the  -  October 7 restructuring vote,  however, the committee went  '-  on   record   as   supporting   a  separate vote for the areas involved.   In  other  words,  the  committee proposes a simple  ��  majority be necessary in a combined total of Areas E and F  ,i votes as well as a simple majori-  '?_  ty in the votes from Gibsons to  pass restructuring.  Gibsons Council is also in  favour of a separate vote and  Alderman John Reynolds told  committee members on Saturday an official letter has recently been sent to the Ministry of  Municpal Affairs from council  ; requesting a serparate vote be  allowed in the restructuring  referendum.  The final decision on the mat-  : ter rests with the Attorney  General, apparently, who might  well, Reynolds said, decide on  the more usual single voting  procedure in spite of council's  demands.  "A decision should be forthcoming   in   early   August," *  committee chairman Malcolm  Fraser said.  Each subcommittee chairman  was asked to compile 20 questions relevant to his delegated  field of expertise on the subject  of restructuring, which the committee plans to answer and use  in newspaper advertisements  prior to the August 3 public  meeting.  Some of the questions to be  examined were raised by callers  to the phone-in restructuring  program aired on Coast Cable  television last Thursday. One  such issue is the Soames Point  Water Improvement Area  which needs work done on its  system but which is not eligible,  according to the committee, for  provincial revenue sharing  grants. As part of a municipality, the committee said, it would  be.  "With those facts," David  Vaughan sad, "if we can't persuade that group (Soames  Point) to go with restructuring,  we can't persuade anyone."  Other issues which the committee plans to investigate concern the police costs of a new,  enlarged municipality and what  funds would be available to support the library, the parks and  other "emotive concerns",  Fraser said.  As for taxation, "We have to  talk about the reality of taxes  and why they go up. It would all  depend on die people elected to  run the municipality and what  the voters want. A municipality  can set its own taxes."  The letters patent for Sechelt  were received by ihe appropriate subcommittee and  were described as 'not too exciting'. The letters patent and  taxation subcommittee has yet  to meet to discuss the possible  phasing in of Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper's (HSPP) taxes,  Vaughan said.  The committee also established that as a publicly owned corporation, HSPP does not have  a vote in the referendum and  most of the mill workers who  do not have their principal  domicile in the relevant areas dp  not either.  The Ministry of Municipal  Affairs will also be asked to  allow an advance poll of  residents of Areas E and F for  those not able to vote in October.

Call Toll Free 1-800-663-2500  The regional board was  treated to an education session  presented by Iris Griffith of the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee at last week's meeting. Griffith was there to show the board  a slide presentation being offered throughout this area  about the hazards that nuclear  naval craft in Nanoose Bay pose  to the Sunshine Coast.  Pointing to a map of wind  directions in the Strait of  Georgia, Griffith showed how  prevailing westerly winds would  direct any radioactivity in the  atmosphere toward Powell  River, if an accident should occur in Nanoose Bay itself, or the  Lower Sunshine Coast if an accident occured south of the bay.  The likelihood of such an accident occurring is much higher  than most people would think,  she explained, and related some  alarming figures to the board,  such as: the US Navy calls our  fire departments 350 times per  year to attend fires that occur  on its vessels in port.  The American Navy had 27  vessels at Nanoose Bay last year  but the US government's policy  is to neither confirm nor deny  that nuclear weapons are  aboard. The Canadian government's policy is not to ask, she  said.  Should a fire occur aboard a  nuclear powered vessel, or one  carrying nuclear weapons, the  cloud of radioactive dust would  cover 50 kilometres or more and  contain 10,000 times the levels  of plutonium considered safe by  the American government.  Although most accidents on  submarines aren't reported, she  said, one study shows an accident every three months involving a submarine.  _?PANT SALE *200 A BAG  THRIFTY'S  Tues - Sat  10-4  SUPPORT THE  GIBSONS  886-2488 or Box 598  The Sunshine Coast's  MOST COMPLETE CUSS SHOP  jf>  \:. ���  !&S^L__Wi��i��^^  Blii||| ^  ,^_jj��iMi_Mlj__i���_ii_^ ' ���m  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd., Gibsons 886-7359  The most common cause of  accidents on the American Navy  vessels is human error. Five  thousand people a year are  removed from the nuclear  weapons program due to  substance abuse or abherrant  behaviour. The stress level on  submarines, she pointed out, is  extremely high, resulting in a  higher risk factor.  The presence of American  Navy vessels in Nanoose Bay is  not due to any NATO agreement, Griffith assured the  meeting. The American government, she said, simply asked  and Canada said yes. The agreement can be broken on six  month's notice.  Brett MacGillivray, chairman  of the Emergency Program  Committee on the Sunshine  Coast, asked Griffith to bring  her presentation to the next  meeting.  In the meantime, the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee  will be circulating a petition to  declare Nanoose Bay and the  Strait of Georgia a nuclear free  zone.  Arts  Centre  exhibit  At the Art Centre this week  there is an exhibition of water-  colours by three Sunshine Coast  artists who work almost exclusively in this medium.  'Coastwise' combines recent  paintings by Vivian Chamberlin, Wendy Simmonds and  Noreen Marshall to give us a  'picture' of those qualities and  things which make life on the  Sunshine Coast special.  These artists are long-time  residents of the Coast and have  long been active in the arts here.  Noreen and Wendy are prominent in the Harbour Artists  Group in Pender Harbour, and  Vivian is an exhibitor and  volunteer at the Hunter Gallery  in Gibsons.  Good, typical examples of  these artists' work which, you  will find in this show are:  'Walkway' (Noreen Marshall)  where shadows and structures  create a rhythmic path to the  figure at the focus of the picture; 'The Boys Go Prawning'  (Wendy Simmonds) which  shows a tangled pattern of gear  and people indicating the inextricable ties of fisherfolk to their  source of livelihood; 'Walk To  The Skookumchuck' (Triptych  by Vivian Chamberlin) which  takes us on one of the most  pleasant and spectacular day  trips to be found anywhere.  Any artist, craftsperson or  collector wishing to arrange an  exhibition at the Arts Centre in  1990 should contact us for a  "Guide For Submissions" information sheet.
