 �����-  Ta;  ?7iT*Z2^ y*^% auses council to back off  l/tO^O^.t^        ^-  . . ��� ;   by Ellen Frith  The proposed restructuring  situation for the Town of Gibsons and Areas E and F is  becoming, in the words of one  observer, "curiouser and  curiouser". For weeks it has  been an on again, off again proposition and now, 20 days  before the planned referendum  date of October 7, the Mayor of  Gibsons has asked the Minister  of Municipal Affairs, Rita  Johnston to rescind the  minister's formal order granting  permission for the referendum.  The   order   arrived   at   the  municipal hall late last Friday  afternoon.  The referendum is called off,  Mayor Diane Strom says,  because the approval from Victoria is contingent upon the  municipality being limited to  taxing the Port Mellon mill at  the provincial industrial tax  rate.  In her news release on  Septeritber 16, Mayor Strom  says: "I have received a letter  from the Honourable Rita  Johnston, Minister of Municipal Affairs, who has notified  me that cabinet has given approval in principal for the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper mill to  be included in the area for  restructuring.  "Unfortunately this approval  is contingent on limiting the tax  levy on the Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper mill to the provincial  rural industrial tax rate. After  spending these last few days  reviewing what this limitation  would do to the residential tax  rate for the proposed incorporated area, I am compelled to  refuse the right to go to referendum.  " The integrity of the mayor,  council and the Restructuring  Advisory   Committee   (RAC)  would be forfeited by implementing these restrictions to  the detriment of our entire community. It is with regret that I  ask the RAC to cancel any planned meetings, publications or  further promotion and stand  down.  "It is my opinion that the  restrictions have been imposed  in response to the successful  lobbying of big business and  result in a preferential deal being awarded to a single pulp  mill. I would assume that this  decision will result in other major industries in the province of  BC   lobbying   the   provincial  government   for   the   same  preferential treatment.  I want to thank the RAC for  the volunteer time and effort  each member has contributed to  what could have resulted in the  building of a greater community."  The RAC has been asked to  remain intact but inactive,  Alderman John Reynolds told  the Coast News, because Mayor  Strom has asked the province to  consider one other alternative.  In a September 15 letter to  Premier Bill Vander Zalm,  Strom states: "I believe that  there is a way in which you and  cabinet can reduce the impact of  the restrictions you have placed  upon us. This would be by  showing concern for this town  to the extent of providing the  rural industrial tax levy to the  existing town to offset the impact on our municipal infrastructure, without any incorporation of fringe area residential development."  In the same letter to Vander  Zalm, Strom states the cabinet  decision to restrict the industrial  tax rate has caused "dismay and  great disappointment" and that  the provincial government has,  Please turn to page 12  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast  25* per copy on news stands       September 18,1989  New lifestyle seen  Sechelt gravel pit  marks offical opening  by David Fraser  Members of the Sechelt Indian Band Council Lenora Joe, Chief Tom Paul, Bent Pierre and Stan Dixon and Construction Aggregates officials, Tim Arnold, President; Steve Roik, Vice President; Cecil  Merritt, company manager in Sechelt-, Loren Eve, Superintendent and District of Sechelt Mayor Tom  Meredith joined guests last Thursday for an informal gathering and salmon barbeque.  ���Vera Elliott photo  Last Thursday Construction  Aggregates and the Sechelt Indian Band held their official  opening of a shared sand and  gravel operation which could  become the largest in North  America when in full production.  Chief Tom Paul says revenue  from the operation should  amount to Yapproximately  $300,000 this7 year. He says  royalties will continue under a  lease agreement until 2028,-  aiding the Indian District's  i5i��. ^community, prpgrams atnd  "     economic: development  The operation will bring  about lifestyle changes and help  the band become more self-  sustaining, Chief Paul says.  Chief Paul says it took over  20 years to produce the first  barge-load of aggregate since  the original agreement was signed between the band and the  company.  "We had to overcome a lot  of  bureaucratic  hurdles  that  came with self-government,"  Chief Paul explains. He says the  operation will provide ongoing  employment opportunities for  band members.  Under their agreement the  company must hire one in five  employees from the band. Currently, three Sechelt Band  members are employed at the  aggregate plant.  The plant is at 60 per cent  capacity now but has the potential for off-loading three million  tonnes per year. The value of  the aggregate will be between $3  to $3.50 per tonne, subject to  ,i:marke^icpndUions;;sY V;:YiYY^ ���':������.  It  takes  approximately  90  minutes to load the company  barge with aggregate which is  towed by company tugs to the  Lower Mainland. The plant will  produce   materials   for   road  building, asphalt materials for  paving, concrete aggregates for  ready-mix   concrete,   crushed  rock for retail and granular fills  for land reclamation.  The plant is currently produc  ing crushed rock and sand.  Stage two will produce concrete  aggregates when it becomes  operational in mid-1990.  Production capacity will be  3000 tonnes per hour loading  onto barges and 1400 tonnes per  hour from pit feed to the mill.  The operation is fully computerized, requiring only 10  operators and two managers.  Sechelt Band Elder Gilbert  Joe recalls his great-grandfather  S'kwa'kuim (meaning storyteller) telling him, as a child,  that the isthmus connecting  Sechelt Peninsula and the  mainlands wa^ once ?,a: liuge ^;,  panse of gravel ancj^d,' &h-'  taining no trees or vegetation.  "People used to laugh at us  about our land and its value."  Joe explains. "Now look at us.  It's what is under the trees that  counts. No one knew then."  Sechelt means 'to portage' in  the Sechelts' language. The  Sechelts once did this when  traversing the land between  Porpoise Bay and Trail Bay.  Waste management  amendment sought  by Penny Fuller  Guests took part in a tour of Construction Aggregates sand and gravel installation.   ���Dave Fraser photo  SCRD seeks Area C  boundary expansion  by Penny Fuller  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District planning committee has  approved, in principle, a proposal to expand the boundaries  of rural Area C. At last week's  meeting Area C Director Stan  Dixon urged the committee to  seriously consider suggestions  made at a 'think tank' session in  August.  Dixon wants to extend the  boundaries of his area to encompass the entire Sechelt Inlet  and foreshore, which is currently divided between rural Areas  A,B,D, and F and the Sechelt  Municipal District. No mention  was made of Sechelt's jurisdiction.  The re-alignment would  make geographic sense, Dixon  pointed out, and would provide  for the orderly development of  the Sechelt Inlet. The actual  details of the boundaries would  have to be worked out, he  agreed, but the concept is  sound.  Directors John Shaske, Brett  McGillivray and Peggy Connor,  from Areas F,D and B respec  tively, all stated emphatically  their support for the idea.  Gordon Wilson said his Area  Planning Committee had taken  a serious look at the proposal.  "I can tell you there'll be some  .fine negotiations if this takes  place," he said. "The  Skookumchuk is in Area A, I  know that much."  Area E Director Jim Gurney  also lent his support adding  there are provisions in Bill 19  for regional districts to re-align  their boundaries. His motion to  approve the concept in principle  was unanimously carried.  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  (HSPP) has once more applied  for an amendment to its waste  management permit, but this  time it will enable them to  facilitate a more rapid implementation of its pollution  reduction plans, HSPP representatives Don Stuart and Ron  Wilson explained to the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) planning committee  last Thursday night.  Wilson and Stuart presented  the regional directors with an  extensive explanation of current  and future levels, both permitted and actual, of air emissions  and toxicity levels in discharged  effluent.  The first application was for  an amendment to a permit  which kicks in at the beginning  of August 1990. It regulates the  air emissions from three  recovery boilers, two power  boilers, two lime kilns and three  smelt tanks and reflects the  original plans for mill expansion.  The permit allows for the  operation of one recovery  boiler, one power boiler, one  kiln and one smelt tank.  Plans have changed since the  original permit was issued and  the mill wants more time to  replace the two 'B' level power  boilers with one *A' level boiler.  The change involves an electrical co-generation plan which  would see the mill generating,  according to Wilson, about one  twentieth the power of the Site  C dant.  An additional benefit is that  the power is produced from  wood waste, the disposal of  which has been a major concern  to regional directors.  When installed, the new  power boiler, "...will enable us  to consume over 400,000 units  of wood waste, which is two  million cubic metres of wood  waste a year. So we expect to be  able to consume most of the  wood waste on the Coast if the  producers can present it to us in  a form that is usable," Wilson  explained.  Without the permit amendment, HSPP would not be able  to proceed with co-generation  plans in their present form.  "What would happen if you  didn't go ahead with the co-  generation?" aked Area A  Director Gordon Wilson.  "Well, 1 guess eventually Site  C (dam) would be built,"  Wilson said.  The actual daily loading into  the atmosphere, between  September 1990 and April 1992,  would be about 1700 kilograms  Please turn to page 8  jffi9  New Anglican rector. P. 4  Port Mellon dioxins *.

On the other hand there are a few  points that it might be useful to make.  First and foremost, it is nigh on incredible that the  provincial government would fund a restructuring  study, approve a voting date, and at the same time impose a financial restriction which renders it virtually  suicidal for the municipality to follow through. If the  retention of the rural tax rate for the Port Mellon complex was always a provincial intention this should have  been made known long ago.  Secondly, the suggestion made by Gibsons Council  that the tax monies from Port Mellon be turned over to  the Town of Gibsons is a suggestion which is not likely  to be accepted by Victoria and is certain to raise hackles  one more time locally.  Better, perhaps, we should take up the public offer  made by Howe Sound Pulp President Bill Hughes for a  sharing of the pulp mill's taxes (Coast News, August  7/89) though surely a sharing between Gibsons and the  adjoining rural areas would be appropriate. If Hughes'  suggestion can be followed in some constructive manner, something may yet be salvaged from this painful  exercise.  5 YEARS AGO  A tragic fire in the early hours of Saturday morning  completely gutted a home on Sechelt's Shorncliff  Avenue, next to the tourist bureau, and claimed as its  victim three-year-old Dustin Johnson.  Branch No. 140 of the Royal Canadian Legion,  Sechelt, marked its 50th anniversary last week with two  generous community donations.  A planned project by the joint ExpOasis/Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association committed to have  "U-Catch-em" net pens stocked with fish farm raised  Coho salmon all along the Sunshine Coast during the  run of Expo '86 has received the whole-hearted support  of Expo's principal organizers.  10 YEARS AGO  What is described as a developers' war is reported in  Sechelt over the location of the proposed Joint Facility  to house the SCRD, the school  board and Sechelt  village council.  Environment Minister Rafe Mair announces the  disbanding of the Environment Land Use Committee of  the provincial government. The committee has been instrumental in delaying the controversial Cheekye-  Dunsmuir power line.  Superintendent John Denly announces that teaching  morale has never been higher as the new school year  gets underway.  Conservation Officer Jamie Stephen says the bear  population is four times higher than its normal level on  the Sunshine Coast after a bear is shot in the middle of  Gibsons behind Ken's Lucky Dollar store.  Six-year-old Raven Moscrip is the object of a search  party in the Francis Peninsula area but comes out of the  bush on his own at three in the morning. He fell asleep  in the bush after a quarrel with a playmate.  A convict escaped from a prison camp near Campbell  River is arrested by RCMP on the Port Mellon Highway  after being at liberty for two and a half months.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council is to consider allowing commercial  entertainment on Sundays in Gibsons. The by-law, proposed by Ray Boothroyd of the Twilight Theatre, would  also allow Sunday sports.  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital is  planning a Fall Carnival on October 25.  30 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's first white settler, Mr. Tom Cook, celebrates  his 96th birthday.  Work has started on the headquarters of the Gibsons  detachment of the RCMP.  Thirty-two days of unremitting effort were unavailing  as doctors and nurses at St. Mary's Hospital in Garden  Bay fought to preserve the life of the infant child of Mr.  and Mrs. George August of Sechelt. The baby was only  two pounds 15 ounces at birth.  Port Mellon pulp mill will be in full operation on  Thursday after the recent IWA strike.  40 YEARS AGO  A windstorm knocks out a section of the approach to  Roberts Creek wharf.  The recent closure of the Port Mellon pulp mill has  seen the Port Mellon Community Club generously  donating many of its facilities to other community clubs,  in the district.  r  The Sunshine  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

After a year editing  and reporting for two Gulf  Islands newspapers I was ready  for bigger challenges.  Moving to the Sunshine  Coast to report for another  community newspaper seemed  like a logical transition. Many  of the issues of living in a  coastal, rural community are  common between the two areas.  Increasingly, they are becoming bedroom communities of  Vancouver and Victoria; they  are subject to urban pressures  such as rising real estate values  and active development.  Accessible mainly by ferry,  the Gulf Islands and Sunshine  Coast has attracted a fair share  of eccentrics, artists, writers and  others drawn by the relative  isolation.  There is little doubt these  coastal jewels are on the verge  of an urban influx that will boggle the imagination and dishearten those treasuring the  unhurried charm of rural living.  A frustrating drive through  Vancouver's choked streets  reminds us of how lucky we are  to live where traffic lights and  traffic jams are rare.  One thousand newcomers  flood into Vancouver weekly,  searching for their little slice of  heaven, with disastrous consequences. Uncontrolled growth,  housing shortages, a thick pall  of polluted air hovering over  that seaport city - these are the  reasons many flee Vancouver  and other cities for the Sunshine  Coast.  I recall as a child my home  town of Vancouver was always  competing with Winnipeg for  the honour of being the nation's  third largest city, after Montreal  and Toronto. Now, of course,  Vancouver's position as  Western Canada's centre and  gateway to the Pacific Rim is  uncontested.  I graduated from the University of BC and hit the job  market just in time for the worst  recession in recent memory in  the early 1980s. Unable to find  work I enrolled in a one year  teacher training program but  'found to my dismay that, I  disliked the bureaucratic entanglements of the profession.  So, hearing that a position as  sports editor was available in  Williams Lake I was only too  eager to seize the opportunity.  I first tasted journalism  writing the occasional piece for  my campus rag, the Ubyssey.  (Pierre Berton, Alan Fother-  ingham and other noted writers  cut their teeth on that paper.  John Turner considers his stint  as the Ubyssey's sports editor as  the pinnacle of his career.)  As on the Sunshine Coast  there was competition to deal  with on Pender Island. There  were, in fact, three newspapers  and a monthly newsletter battling for turf on that minute  island of 1300 souls.  The media war was considered odd-ball enough to draw  the attentions of a BCTV news  crew which found the situation  mildly hilarious. Their sensationalized treatment of the  newspaper war was aired on the  nightly news early this year.  Battling for the hearts and  minds of the residents of  Galiano, Mayne, Saturna and  Pender Islands was fraught with  minor triumphs, let-downs and  a lion's share of stress. In  retrospect, I consider my experience as editor of the now-  defunct Island Times as rewarding and beneficial.  Living on the Gulf Islands  also taught me the importance  of recycling -1 cringe when someone throws out a food tin instead of washing and crushing  it. All the islands had some  form of recycling. Only Salt  Spring had a sanitary landfill  while other islanders paid for  each bag of garbage hauled off  island to the Victoria landfill.  I'm encouraged that the Sunshine Coast has its own recycling program, spearheaded by a  Sechelt food store, a fine example that the private sector can  get involved in the recycling  campaign.  Sunshine Coasters apparently  worry as much about pollution  from the Port Mellon pulp mill  as Gulf Islanders brood about  wastes from the Crofton mill on  Vancouver Island, a 20 minute  ferry ride from Salt Spring.  Crofton mill was the target of  environmentalists for releasing  toxins which destroyed salmon,  shellfish and heron habitats.  One wonders how long it will  be before Gulf Island waters,  ���too, will be closed to fishing as  the polluted seas in Howe  Sound now are.  Proud Songsters  The thrushes sing as the sun is going,  A nd the finches whistle in ones and pairs.  And as it gets dark loud nightingales  In bushes  Pipe, as they can when April wears,  As if all Time were theirs.  These are brand-new birds of twelve-months*  growing,  Which a year ago, or less than twain,  No finches were, nor nightingales,  Nor thrushes,  But only particles of grain,  And earth, and air, and rain.  Thomas Hardy  In a nutshell  Hatless in Winnipeg  by S. Nutter  Somehow I never liked hats. I  At age 16 in Winnipeg in the  30's, what with the depression  and all, I had a job with a bond  and stock company called A.E.  Ames. There were only five of  us in the office and everyone  wore hats. The bond trader, in  the worst of Portage and Main  blizzards, always wore a  bowler.  I went without a hat. Being  the junior I was perhaps un-  noticeable, but with three, four,  five years going by it began to  be sensed that I was, perhaps  deliberately, going hatless.  The sensible thing of course,  if you were scurrying around  Winnipeg in the winter with  trading suggestions and/or  packets of bonds and stocks,  would be to wealr a toque well  pulled down. Somehow this  would not have been right for  A.E. Ames.  I lived a bit out of town in a  suburb south of Winnipeg. The  office day, latched to the opening of the market in Toronto,  began earlier than it did for  most folk.  Mine involved a mile walk to  catch the first street car at the  end of its line. There was a short  cut foot-path through the bush, -  but in winter you could arrive at  the car thinking of Scott in the  Antarctic. But then you leaped  aboard, shovelled coke into the  stove, its only heat, and rattled  quite merrily into town.  It was rather a strange time in  the bond business in the west. In  the depression business was not  what could be called brisk. Our  manager was a young type and  pleasured himself, I think, by  trying to give his junior a course  in economics.  He was really very nice about  this, and if he came along and  looked over my shoulder and  instead of reading Jeremy Ben-  tham or Adam Smith I was  reading the Nation or Partisan  Review, on company time, he  didn't seem to mind.  What of course was happening at that time was the rising  tide of socialism. All, I think  all, of my friends, going to  university, were socialists. I was  involved with them, and in  seminars etc., well into most of  the nights.  But I was after all in the bond  business, and the bond business  was, and is, the very citadel of  Capitalism. I, involved with it  every day, in detail, trans-  Canada, could hardly but think  that it was the best way (while  of course you were seeking  other courses) of keeping the  country running and expanding.  Something of a dilemma  perhaps, in one's teens.  I compromised to an extent  by deciding to buy a hat.  I went to a place on Portage  Avenue, Dobbs I think, and  chose one. What with the  psychological factors involved it  was a bit unusual, but not too  much so I thought - pea green,  Borsalino style, with a heavily  welted brim. I didn't wear it  home but carried in on the street  car in a bag.  In the morning, with the rest  of the family still asleep, I had  my usual brekkers (porridge  cooked the night before in a  double boiler), put on the hat  and trudged off into the dark.  Half-way along my short cut  pathway through the bush it  became plain to me that I  couldn't wear this thing into  town that day.  I stepped off the path a bit  and hid it under a bush. When I  came back that night it was  gone.  Soon after this, the spring of  '40, I left for the air force.  Whether I left them thinking I  had gone over to bolshevism  will have to remain a question.  f  ��Ei___  :biue ���  filBBCiN  AW'ARP  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News, September 18,1989  Editor;  Re: Ms Werenko letter  September 11 issue  Big words should be* used  with care; they can backfire. Ms  Werenko must realize that this  term can be applied as aptly to  her pro-abortion letters. Propaganda is a buzz word which  signals the reader to dismiss  whatever has been so labelled,  tho matter how much truth it  holds.  If one is led by this type of  labelling to dismiss the facts of  abortion stated by a respected  physician, then one is wilfully  choosing ignorance. The truth  of abortion though sensitive  and unpleasant are necessary to  know in order for us to then  make the wise 'informed' decisions.  Ms Werenko's brand of common sense is dangerous. Does  she or our society believe the  criteria we should use to determine our conduct lie solely on  the desire to have it?  Then what about the man  who really wants to rape, or the  driver who wants his drink? If  we recognize the need to make  laws that regulate behaviour in  our society, for the good of  society, then abortion too must  fall under scrutiny. Abortion  affects and destroys the innocent.  As one who had an abortion  at the age of 18, I regret being  kept ignorant of all the facts  relevant to make one of the  most important decisions in my  life. Are women's best interests  truly being served if abortion is  decided largely on the basis of  their current emotional state of  mind (or desire to have it),  rather on the basis of an intelligent   informed   understan  ding of what abortion is, along  with support needed to carry  her through a pregnancy.  I would like to thank Dr.  Alice Westlake for making  public more of the facts on  abortion and raising the level of  thought, thus enabling us to  make wise decisions. Rarely do  we hear a physician address  this sensitive topic.  Thank you Dr. Westlake for  your professionalism, concern,  and courage to stand up and  educate your community.  Laurie Gray  Sorko's comments cause for apology  Editor:  The Coast News September  11 issue quotes Jane Sorko as  complaining about access to the  community channel because  "there are those at Channel 11  who are adamantly opposed to  the proposition" (restructuring).  Whatever my or my volunteers' personal feelings are has  never had any jurisdiction over  whether we do or don't produce  a program. Not only does our  company policy state that we  must provide balanced programming but it is also a condition of our operating license  from the CRTC. If we produce  a one-sided program we are  obligated to provide equal time  to all other opposing sides.  The comment about 'pro-  restructuring' programming on  the community channel was  totally inaccurate. In June 1989  we produced a phone-in program with the restructuring advisory committee which Mrs.  Sorko was a participant. On  Thursday, September 21 we will  be providing the 'anti-  restructuring' people with equal  time.  We had scheduled to carry  the restructuring advisory committee's meeting September 23  at Elphinstone 'live' and had  scheduled a debate between  those for and against restructur  ing on September 28. Due to the  recent developments in the  restructuring issue we may not  be able to produce the latter two  programs, however we are  obligated to provide the opposing side with a forum and will  endeavour to do so.  Coast Cable 11 has always  provided balanced programming whether it means having a  guest and host from different  political parties during political  programs or producing both  sides of a controversial issue like  restructuring.  We take Jane Sorko's statement quoted in your paper as an  attack on our integrity and request an apology.  Steve Sleep  Community Programming  Manager  Coast Cable Vision Ltd.  Editor:  Reading about the governing  of Gibsons by the current 'majority' votes of Strom, Reynolds  and Dixon is enjoyable for its  amusement and entertainment  value but the cost to this area in  terms of reputation and financial burdens on the taxpayers as  a result of their lack of responsible decision making is appalling.  Should not the role of council  be to control with knowledge  the functioning and progress of  their area while the administration should be hired to carry out  the decisions of council in a professional manner? This seems to  be reversed in Gibsons with the  'majority' group constantly  rubberstamping the desires of  the administrator without making the effort to come to their  own independent researched  conclusions.  \  Now the latest scenario beats  them all! Council is accepting  the recommendation of the  town administrator for so|  meone to do a report on the  town's administration.

Marian said he was a local  beachcomber and had a metal  boat so he would rescue the  boat closest to the rocks. The  Windwalker then managed to  get a line on the Tequila and  towed it to safety, while John  Marian rescued the Ruby Ellen.  Several other fishboats were  standing by ready to give  assistance.  Both Ian Munro and John  Marian deserve the "highest  praise."  Patti Malcolm  on driftnet fishing. We honestly  don't understand this statement.  Between 1979 and 1987  Canada, under the auspices of  the Department of Fisheries and  Oceans, conducted an experimental driftnet fishery operation off the west coast of Vancouver Island. This was done on  a very small scale.  The incidental catches from  this experiment were: 49 marine  animals, 412 sea birds, 32,338  Blue sharks, 19,253 pomfrets.

According to the Westcoast  Whale Research Foundation in  the North Pacific alone an  estimated 10,000 Dall's porpoises, 50,000 Fur seals and  250,000 seabirds drown in drift-  nets each year.  Don't you think these numbers represent an even greater  environmental disaster?  We haven't even mentioned  yet the illegally caught salmon,  estimated at 30,000 tonnes.  We demand an immediate  moratorium on driftnet fishing  in the Pacific northwest.  Copies of this letter will be  sent to: Prime Minister Brian  Mulroney, Environment Minister Lucien Bouchard, Raymond Skelly, MP for North  Island-Powell River. ....'  ~:_   r. ,_r Willemina Weyburg  Editor:  The pressured attempt by a  small group of people to  restructure Areas E and F and  the Town of Gibsons has charged on long enough.  If certain conditions existed  restructuring would proceed  smoothly and may benefit more  than just an isolated few.  The conditions include a  realistic plan stating where the  municipality is going. This plan  should include 10 year projections for the capital and  maintenance budget for roads,  water, sewer, parks, etc. the  municipality chooses to operate.*  Rates can then be guaranteed. *  The Sunshine Coast Regional"  District water system is a good?  example of the 10 year plan with*\  set rates. y  A proven council with the ef-2  fectiveness to implement the';;  plan must also be in place to*  gain the confidence of the*  general public. ?  With these conditions in placed  the electorate can decide on the^  direction the community should?  go based on economic fact and *  strong leadership. ���*  John Shaske j��  Director, Area F  �����8  Diesel Engine Rebuilding  Industrial Parts  Hwy 101, _����_��'_%_��.��_*  Madeira Park OO3-201 O  SCHOOL uraSTMCT NO* 46  SmNSMNE COAST  Home Schooling  We invite parents who intend to home-school their children  to register at their local school.

Coast News, September 18,1989  ew An  rector arrives  T. by George Cooper  i "What is really important in  IT. this  parish and what should  Y receive the main emphasis in  < anything you report is what the  ' people have done here in Chris-  * tian endeavour."  t Esther North, newly appointed rector of St. Aidan's  t and St. Bartholomew's, added,  Y"I feel, more than anything else  > that I've just joined a strong  tteam."  Y Last September 9, a Saturday, the church packed with  ; parishioners and visitors, the ar-  . -chbishop   of   the   Anglican  * diocese of New Westminster  ; (also who is the metropolitan of  /Anglican diocese in BC),  ���Douglas Hambidge, officiated  ��� at the service wherein Esther  ."was inducted as rector of the  y parish.  ;    Music provided by musicians  ;-Myrna Coleman, violin; Anne  -Schreck,  flute; Enid Godkin,  piano;   and   Eleanor   Abbott,  organ, underscored the warmth  "of feeling evident in the congregation. The 'ringing tones of  the processional, the Hymn to  ;Joy (Beethoven), certainly expressed the theme of the occasion.  ��� Among the visitors come to  <msh her well, was a group from  "'St. Matthew's in Abbotsford  where Esther was for the past  ^two years, assistant to the rector.  From this same parish the  <week before had come a  "number of men and women and  ;several teenagers as a work party to do some needed renovations to the church building, like  insulating   a  room,   changing  some  windows,   laying   some  carpet.  "They had said they'd arrive  on the first ferry and work until  dusk if need be, and then stay  over until the next day, Sunday,  to worship with us."  Esther North spent her early  days in Saskatoon, and the past  20 years in BC. She has had a  career in media and advertising.  Esther completed the degree  of Master of Divinity two years  ago in the Vancouver School of  Theology, and was then appointed to Abbotsford.  Barbara Corbett, a member  of the selection committee, said,  "She  is  a   very  caring  and  understanding   person   who  manifests God's love."  And she added, "She will certainly  guide  us,   as  the   archbishop put it, in our time of  awakening."  HERE AND THERE  Garth and Jill Combs visited  Gibsons last week from their  new home in Airdrie, Alberta.  Last Saturday they attended the  annual reunion dinner in  Langley of former Winnipeg  Rifle Regiment veterans who  live in BC.  Last June Garth and Jill were  part of a tour to the Normandy  beaches, scene of D-day landings.  "The rain poured down on  Reverend Esther North and Archbiship Douglas Hambidge. (See  George in Gibsons.) ���George Cooper photo  June 6, the D-day anniversary,"  said Jul, "adding to the sombre  feelings of many of us. But the  sun came out just as the international ceremony began on the  beaches."  Jill said the new museum in  Caen to commemorate the Nor-  many landings had very little  that was Canadian in it. "It  seems Canada generally did not  :respond to requests for  :memorabilia," said Jill.  About the RCMP cap badge  emblem mentioned in last  week's Coast News: the bison  head is indeed the centrepiece of  the badge and has been for  years. The fact the bison is  almost extinct must have  mislead me.  The executive members of  Branch 109, Gibsons Legion  and of the Ladies' Auxiliary  gathered for a picnic recently at  Eastbourne on Keats at the  homes of Jean Donald, auxiliary president and of Mr. and  Mrs. Dick.  The group is particularly  grateful to Harry Smith for providing transportation to Keats  on very short notice.  The legion auxiliary to  Branch 109 is holding a dinner  and dance in the hall on  September 29. Tickets at Sunnycrest Photo and the R.C.  Legion.  And this Wednesday the auxiliary has the first fall 109ers'  luncheon at 1 pm in the hall. Be  sure to let them know that you  are going to attend.  And speaking of dancing -  Scottish Country Dancing  begins its fall program this  September 29 in the United  Church Hall from 8 to 10 pm.  You are welcome to join.  Gibsons still unhappy with Howe Sound Pulp  by Ellen Frith  '���- The Town of Gibsons is still  "not content with what it  'perceives as the lack of com-  ; munication between it and the  .'Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  (HSPP) mill at Port Mellon and  ! Town Planner Rob Buchan  ^dismissed the socio-economic'  -���impact assessment reports  ^prepared each month for HSPP  ^.by Connor Development Ser-  . vices Limited as mainly "nar-  : rative".  "The  report  doesn't  pene-  ; trate the adverse effects (of the  mill expansion) and how to nan-  idle them," Buchan said.  ',.-   HSPP General Manager Harry Cargo met with council last  Tuesday to report on the progress of the mill expansion at  ���Port Mellon and in an attempt  to answer council's concerns.  ;    "The project is going very  well," he said, and stated he felt  HSPP was doing all it could to  uphold its side of the interaction  necessary between it and the  town.  . "The biggest concern in Gibsons," he said, according to  HSPP surveys, "is how are we  going to make the mill environmentally safe?"  ; Buchan said HSPP was not  addressing the damage the lack  of environmental standards had  caused in the past. Morally, he  said, restitution should be made  to those in the community who  have been affected.  Cargo said the past could not  be undone and that HSPP was  doing its best to address both  the present and the future.  HSPP Mill Manager Don  Stuart told the Coast News the  mill  has  made  its  proposed  technical changes and therefore  has adopted a dioxin-free mode.  Test results on the effluent  are due in a few weeks, Stuart  says.  \  V  Vote YES on the upcoming referendum on Gibsons Public Library was the theme at the Library's informational booth at Gibsons Mall last weekend. ���Kent Sheridan photo  >0 years combined experience  On line computer system  Very competitive prices  Mike, Mary, Hilary  SEMI-ANNUAL  Jewellery Repair Event  Are the claws worn thin?

The Chamber wants to consider these businesses for  nominations in a competition  for special awards that will be  presented to businesses from all  parts of the Mainland/Southwest Development Region.  The Small Business Excellent  Awards Program was announced recently by Regional  Development Minister Elwood  Veitch, who is also Minister of  State for the Mainland/Southwest Region.  The program is also known  as IDEA '89, an acronym for  the four judging categories: initiative, diversification, entre-  preneurship and achievement.  "The awards will recognize  the value of small business in  the Mainland/Southwest Region by honouring those who  have taken an IDEA, turned it  into reality and developed a  thriving small business," Veitch  said.  A total of 28 chambers of -  commerce throughout the  Region. are working together  with local economic development officers and the six  regional districts in a search for  small businesses to nominate  for 24 awards, four from each  district.  The nominations will be  judged by a regional business  advisory board which includes  Parliamentary Secretaries Harry  De Jong and Dan Peterson.  The awards ceremony will  take place at a luncheon in Vancouver on October 21, to lead  off the October 22 to 28 Small  Business Week.  Veitch urged anyone who is  aware of a small business that  could be considered for  nomination to contact the appropriate chamber of commerce.  "Our province is keen to promote the spirit of entrepreneur-  ship and there is no better time  to express our appreciation for  these businesses than Small  Business Week," the minister  said.

The 14 inch cuke cracked the plastic jug  handle as it grew.

Secretary Treasurer Tim Anderson told the board at last  \ week's meeting that new classrooms will be needed at  .: Madeira Park and Roberts Creek.  The portable classroom at the old Halfmoon Bay site will  Ybe moved to Madeira Park and a new classroom will be acquired for Roberts Creek.  u    Built into the 1990/91 budget will be capital funds for site  acquisition and additions at Cedar Grove and Madeira Park.

Sechelt  9:00 - 5:30       885-3606  Waste management  amendment sought  Continued from page 1  a day more than the existing  permit allows. After that, with  the new power boiler installed,  the amounts of fly ash, salt cake  etc. being emitted into the atmosphere will be about half the  current amounts.  The second waste permit application amendment will see  the mill move from a 'B' level  permit to an 'A' level on its liquid effluent emissions by  August 1990. To do that they  need two interim conditions  which will reflect the production  capacity changes which have occurred since the permit was first  issued.  With the new improvements,  the production at the mill has  increased drastically and the  permit is required to express the  production rate accurately.  There is no change of permitted  performance.  Additionally, it must accurately reflect the TMP/-  newsprint portion of the mill,  something that wasn't included  on the original permit.  These 'technicalities' Wilson  assured the board, would not  produce any increase in toxic  discharge levels.  In fact, with the new treatment systems, the mill will be  operating at levels far superior  to government regulations,  Wilson said. "We'll be four and  a half years ahead of government regulations."  Neither of these permits deals  with the pulp mill smell which ,  plagues residents but there  should be a vast improvement in  that situation by August 1990,  the board was told. However  the sulphur dioxide, which contributes to acid rain will probably not be reduced directly by  the mill's new equipment,  Wilson said, although he didn't  have the exact figures on those  emissions on hand.  "Those don't get regulated,"  Stuart explained, "so we don't  really monitor it."  Area F Director Jim Gurney  pointed out that the reduction  of open-pit burning of wood  waste would in fact improve the  overall air quality in Howe  Sound.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson commented, "I think  the bottom line is that you're  asking us to allow you to pollute  more now so you can pollute  less later."  The HSPP representative  responded, "I wouldn't choose  those words. We're asking to be  allowed to make slower improvements."  "There's a certain amount of  frustration from the politician's  point of view," Wilson explained, "in that we're constantly being seen to allow expansions on  pollution."  The board voted to recommend acceptance of the applications with Director Wilson voicing sole opposition to the continued use of the second power  boiler until 1992.

At last week's meeting of the  planning committee, regional  directors reviewed a few details  that still need to be ironed out,  but for the most part they were  pleased with the project.  The Lagoon Waterfront  Owner's Society will be responsible for the float which will  have one space allotted for  public use.  The only concern about the  project was raised by Gordon  Wilson, who has long been a  proponent of community floats.  He told committee members  that some community floats had  become like exclusive yacht  clubs, with fences, gates and  'No Trespassing' signs.  "That's not what this is all  about," he said.  The regional district will  endeavour to include protection  against such exclusivity in the  language of the sub-lease between the district and the society.  thc DREAM shoppe  Bayside Building, Sechelt       835-1965  Many Gift Ideas  for your Special Loved One  885-3244  Our new office is still under construction  and nearing completion.

Leonard Higgs passed  away Tuesday morning at St.  Mary's Hospital. He was 61  years of age and recently  predeceased by his father less  than a month ago.  Higgs started towing logs in  the Pender Harbour area in the  mid-1940s for his father's company, Nanaimo Towing and  Salvage Ltd. and he started his  own Pender Harbour/Secret  Cove based company, Sechelt  Towing and Salvage, in the  1970s with the Sechelt Chief.  His son, Captain Bill Higgs,  joined him in business in the  1980s to form Higgs Marine  Services with the Native Chief  and the Sechelt Yarder.

Last week he was on the  Sunshine Coast.  Weisbrod, a native of Vancouver now living in Chilliwack,  was on Day Three of the 15-day  'Phase One' of his Child Abuse  Awareness Tour '89 when he  rolled into Gibsons on Thursday. The destination of this leg  of his tour is Victoria.  Weisbrod has rallied together  a board of directors in order to  form the Chilliwack Child  Abuse Awareness Society and  has raised funds for the tour so  far from raffles and garage  sales. A victim of child abuse  himself, Weisbrod says there  just isn't enough money or  enough centres to help those  who are suffering or have suffered abuse.  "The government has only so  much money to spend on this,"  he told the Coast News. "We  have to think of our future."  The objectives of this tour,  Weisbrod said are: to increase  understanding and recognition  of child abuse in every community; to help reduce the emotional, physical and sexual  abuse by way of education; to  fund treatment and prevention  centres for the information and  prevention needed by the victims of child abuse; to implement an on-going national program of public education regarding the effects of child abuse  and to provide the funds needed  for support groups and paren-  Sechelt Seniors  Wheelchair athlete Dave Weisbrod straggles up Davis Bay hill,  assisted by Colleen Nichol. ���David Fraser photo  VanDusen outing  The  Garden Bay Restaurant  will be closed for the season after Saturday, Sept. 23rd.

The  membership, however, should  avail themselves of the direction  that negotiations are taking, in  order to be able to make a sensible decision when the time  comes for an extraordinary  meeting of all members when a  vote will be taken.  Apart from the importance  of being informed on the above,  there is considerable branch  business to be discussed, which  has accummulated during the  summer. It is unfair to be  critical of branch business that  is conducted by the same few  members who faithfully attend  all meetings.  Our   membership   is   large  enough that a larger representation can be expected for these  meetings, and this should certainly be so, since decisions involving   considerable |cash  foutlays crop up from time to  'time  which   must   be  looked  after.  Many of our non-attending  members must begin to realize  that we, as a branch, are a force  within the community which  will take a back seat to nobody.  Our participation in community  affairs can be accomplished by  the voluntary effort put forth  by our members only.  The only way any member  can be aware of all the opportunities to serve our community  is be attending our meetings.  See you there!  EXERCISE & AEROBICS  I understand that a good turnout for classes was frustrated  by lack of an instructor recently. That situation no longer exists, because Evans Herman  R.N., who has been teaching  fitness, aerobics, Tai Chi and  Yoga on the Sunshine Coast for  the last 15 years will be directing  classes starting on Monday  September 25 at 11 am in our  Seniors Hall.  The professional entrance to  classes would seem to be a plus.  Why not come out on Monday  and see what the fall/winter/-  spring session has in store for  you.

Send your entries to reach the Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last week's  winner was Joyce Lasuter who correctly identified the flamingo  on a post on Highway 101 in Roberts Creek.  SHOP LOCALLY;  Continued from page 1  "taken away the legal right of  the duly elected representatives  of the municipality to establish  an industrial tax rate which is  fair not only to the industry involved, but to the residential  taxpayers who live with the impacts created by that industry."  "This is obviously going to  set a precedent," Strom told the  Coast News.  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  (HSPP) President Bill Hughes  told the Coast News this cabinet  decision was, "news to me." He  has just recently returned from  a business trip to Montreal he  said and was not up to date on  the recent situation.  Malcolm Fraser, chairman of  the RAC, said he could not  comment from his position on  the committee but, "As a  private citizen," he said, "I  speculate a deal has been cut at  the expense of the  municipality."  The fact which makes this a  curious affair at this point, is  now that the Minister of  Municipal Affairs has issued a  formal order for the referendum, received both by the  Town of Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) late Friday, it is no  longer a council affair.  "I don't think the mayor has  the right to refuse the referendum now," Area E Director  Jim Gurney told the Coast  News.  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard confirmed this.  "The mayor does not have the  ability to, 'call it off," she told  the Coast News, "but she can  do what she has done and ask to  have the order rescinded.  "If the province wants to  carry it on, it's their referendum," Goddard said.  If the province did insist on  carrying on with the referendum  now, Strom told the Coast  News, the residents would merely vote it down.  It is generally felt by even the  most ardent anti-restructuring  advocates that the referendum  vote should have been allowed  as originally proposed.  "It should have gone to a  vote," Chuck Weatherill told  the Coast News, "and we would  have killed it once and for all."  Weatherill, along with Matte  Laasoo, Jim Gurney and others  were manning an anti-restructuring information table at  Sunnycrest Mall on Saturday  although the RAC information  table was no longer there as .was  originally planned before the  mayor's news release.  "They (the council) have to  take full responsibility for the  split and resentment they have  created in the community,"  Weatherill said.  Gurney said the possibility of  the mill's non compliance in the  proposed restructuring was an  issue that should have been  dealt   with   two   years   ago.  Minister Johnston had written a  letter then, he said, indicating  there might be problems similar  to the ones which have only  now come to light.  The general consensus of  those asked by the Coast News  for an opinion stated the time  and money spent this last year  on studying, promoting or opposing restructuring could have  been better spent elsewhere.  The town's outlay of any  money spent so far by the RAC  will be paid by the province. In  the same letter in which she ad-,  vises Mayor Strom of the>  cabinet's approval of the  referendum date with the tax  restrictions, Minister Johnston  writes: "...I am pleased to  award a further grant of  $8500...  Management review  to be shelved  in Gibsons  Gibsons proposed corporate  review will be "shelved until  after the restructuring vote",  council decided last week.  At a special council meeting  held after the regular Planning  Committee meeting of  September 12, several options  were discussed and four other  bids from firms contacted by  Alderman Lilian Kunstler were  received. She had also talked to  a fifth, she said, but had not yet  received anything in writing.  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  said she would "like to get on  with it", but Kunstler replied  that with a referendum vote  pending it was not time for a  full corporate review.  Alderman   John   Reynolds  said he also wished to have the  review over and done with. "I  wish we could have done it  sooner," he said, adding he was  "most impressed with George  Cluff."  George B. Cluff and  Associates Ltd., who are currently doing a similar corporate  review for the District of  Sechelt, have so far tendered the  lowest bid ($10,000) for the  Gibsons job.  A review, both Reynolds and  Strom said, would be a useful  document for the Town of Gibsons no matter which council  was in office.  "It would be an excellent  document for council and  staff," Strom said.  cuPren> ��cl  EHOOSE.

It measured  mid-point in the figures for  organochlorine levels.  The test results, which are  part of a national dioxin testing  program for BC pulp mills, are  part of the National Dioxin  Characterization Program of  Canada's 45 bleached chemical  pulp mills. BC test samples were  collected in early 1989 by Beak  Consultants Limited and subsequently analyzed by Seakem  Analytical Services Ltd. in  Sidney, BC.  Quality assurance controls  were developed by a joint  government/industry group of  analytical chemists following  protocols established in cooperation with Environment  Canada. The program was  funded by Canadian pulp companies.  HSPP Mill Manager Don  Stuart told the Coast News, the  figures represented tests done  on samples taken before the  new technical changes to  eliminate dioxins in the effluent  from the Port Mellon mill went  into effect last week.  "The tests were taken early  this year," he said. "We're  quite confident the figures have  dropped considerably since our  dioxin-free-mode hasgone into  effect."  Last Tuesday, HSPP General  Manager Harry Cargo told Gibsons Council: "As of this day,  we are not producing dioxins."  It will be another two or three  weeks before there is test confirmation on that statement Stuart  said.  The level of dioxin (2,3,7,8  TCDD) in HSPP's effluent last  January was 400 per quadrillion  while the level of furans (2,3,7,8  TCDF) was 9400. The next  highest was the Weyerhaeuser  mill in Kamioops with 88 and  940 respectively.  "I don't know why we got  such high results," Stuart said,  adding there have been other  tests showing conflicting  numbers.  A press release from Western  Pulp in Squamish said the test  results for its Woodfibre mill indicated a 90 per cent drop in  dioxin levels in its effluent. The  figures show a dioxin level of  7.7 parts per quadrillion and a  furan level of 140 parts per  quadrillion which is the third  lowest in the province.  "These amounts (of dioxin)  are so small they could not be  measured until recently," says  Western Pulp's Vice President  of Operations John Lukosevi-  cius. "To put it in perspective,  our total annual discharge of  this unwanted by-product, dioxin, used to be 4.1 grams, just  GOING TO  VANCOUVER  ON BUSINESS?  from  45  Per  Night  ��� 15 minutes from downtown  Vancouver  ��� Heated outdoor pool  ��� Fine Continental Cuisine  ��� Coffee shop and lounge  �� 5 minutes to PfaE/Coliseum  ��� All major credit cards accepted  coacfo house  ;jpte%%  ton  700 Lillooet Road  North Vancouver, B.C.

He goes on to say Western  Pulp "won't be satisfied until  we eliminate dioxins from our  effluent."  The organochlorine (ADX)  discharge at Port Mellon was  5.8 kg per tonne and there are  several mills in the province  which measured higher. The  total chlorinated organic  discharge for Woodfibre was  3.7 kg per tonne which, in their  case, represents a 50 per cent  drop since February of 1988.  Apparently many mills were  re-tested after high results,  Stuart said, but in HSPP's case  this was deemed unnecessary in  view of the new technical procedures going into effect last  week.  "The finding provides a  snapshot of information from  which we can measure our efforts to further reduce dioxins  and organochlorines from our  operations?" said Peter Wrist,  President, Pulp and Paper  Research Institute of Canada.  "It is estimated that BC pulp  companies will spend in excess  of $1 billion over the next few  years to reduce dioxins and  organochlorines and the toxicity  of effluent in their discharges."  Results for pulp mills in other  provinces will be released as  they become available during  the next few months.  Long at  Sechelt Chamber  The Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce's first  general meeting after the summer will be a dinner meeting  on Tuesday evening, September 19.

Mirage support  Last Monday's public hearing to consider Zoning Amendment By-law 555-27 to amend the Town of Gibsons Zoning  By-law No. 556 which would enable the Georgia Mirage  development proposed for Shaw Road to build cluster housing instead of single homes in a linear pattern was a "very  good meeting," Town Planner Rob Buchan told council last  week.  "Council is fully in favour of the development," Clerk-  Administrator Lorraine Goddard told the Coast News. "The  reason for the delay is to allow the restrictive covenant to be  registered against the property."

Like so many  vbefore him faced with imminent  ^death, Hickman suffers a sudden   conversion   to   Roman  Catholicism. Herb, having personally inspired a good many  'sinners to 'accept salvation' in  his   days   as   a  barnstorming  evangelist, firmly believes the  whole thing is a sham. (The  belief will be corroborated later  by other felons in whom The  fox had confided.)  I   Hickman keeps up his devout  protestations until the very end  and, in an attempt to capture  public sympathy and perhaps a  reprieve, even writes letters to  'the press proclaiming his newfound faith. His efforts are in  vain. As Herb records bluntly in  his memoirs:  The end of William Edward  Hickman's career came on San  Quentin's famous gallows,  where more-honourable and  less notoriety-seeking felons  have died more in conformity  with their misdeeds. The  religious ecstasy which he  boasted would buoy him for the  ordeal, fled; he died a weakling  ��� yellow.  Murderer's Row is situated  directly over the prison music  room. The bandmaster is a  Spaniard with the imposing and  mellifluous name of Professor  Damascus Garcia Gallure. Professor Gallure, once a musician  of international renown, is serving a life sentence for shooting  an Oakland money-lender he  swore had cheated him. He has  seen countless men walk or be  dragged to their final accounting. Since his own crime could  easily have cost him the same  fate, he feels much compassion  for the prisoners above him who  count their numbered days.  The Professor has developed  a ritual in regard to the con  demned men. Three days prior  to each hanging a word is sent  to the noose's next victim that  any tune he might request will  be played that evening. Most accept the offer. Their choices  range all the way from hymns to  mawkish   popular  songs  and  ragtime   tunes.    Professor  Gallure   manages   to   accommodate them all. As twilight  falls   beyond   the   perpetual  twilight   of   the   prison   he  assembles his best pupils and  the requested tunes blare upward.   Despite  their  ominous  significance these concerts are  much enjoyed by the denizens  of Death Row. Herb listens appreciatively along with the rest  and sometimes, closing his eyes,  imagines Helen and himself in  warm Sunday parks, a long way  from here.  When Jim McNamara first  informs the dethroned  safecracking king that he is going to have a cell mate, Herb is  not overjoyed. When the man  proves to be a small, moustach-  ed Mexican, he is even less  pleased. He envisions being subjected to endless hours of pidgin  English babble.  His fears are quite unfounded, however. Juan Trinidad is a  well-spoken man of considerable education. He has  been sentenced to hang for killing the man who raped his  young wife. Trinidad has no  remorse whatsoever in having  committed an act which in  many countries would have  been considered more than  justifiable. "I would kill the pig  again," he declares simply.  Herb is struck by the inequity  of a legal system that will hang a  man like Juan Trinidad for  merely protecting his honour,  yet spare a creature like  McNamara whose deranged  behaviour cost 21 innocent  lives. He finds himself liking the  quiet-spoken,t gentlemanly little  Mexican and they soon become  good friends....to be continued.  Book review  Trower's latest  shows talent  by Jerry Frith  Peter Trower's latest book,  Unmarked Doorways, (Harbour Publishing) is required  reading for all who wish to  come to grips with the local  idiom.  A region's idiom is a unique  ���combination of characteristics  ���and circumstances, past deeds,  ^present travails and future  ���hopes. Always elusive and hard  ;to define, it is the very root and  ;soul of a people's culture.  ; Some places are blessed with  individuals who seek to describe  Jtheir region's soul, however incompletely, in paint, prose or  Ipoetry. Sometimes, only  ^sometimes, a poet rises above  tdoggerel, pedantry and iambic  [pentameter to capture his idiom  ���as a shining star.  i Peter Trower is a fine talent  <who deals with his subjects in  1 terms often more knowing than  ?glowing. To the reader there is  jan intimacy and immediacy in  ;his work that makes it obvious  [the author knows the nuts and  ���guts of the place and its people,  j'of their work and play, their  "surviving, joy and pain. The  ���Sunshine Coast is Trower's  i place.  f. It is becoming increasingly  'difficult to view North America  fin a cultural perspective. The.  I West Coast, like most of the  ; continent, seems possessed of a  'culture of no culture. Money  ^appears the object of worship  land shopping malls the shrines  J of consumerism, and our lives  ',revolve around them. Gibsons  ��� and this coast seem no different  ���from the rest; people doing  ; workaday things to buy their  ; groceries and their VCRs.  But through Unmarked  Doorways, Trower leads us to  the heart of the local idiom. It  would be impossible not to be  changed by the experience. In  the book's first poem,  Boondocks-1947, the reader is  struck by the sights, sounds and  smells of real life: "the barny  dark", the laughter and singing,  the "perfume and sweat" and  the "rotgut whiskey". A Saturday night dance comes alive  with real people.  Like a guide in a midnight  maze Trower leads from poem  to poem with flashlight-beam  insights. He captures the inevitable winter rain in Sailor,  then in The Dead Must Whisper  in the Creeks, he changes  forever our perceptions of the  sound of a babbling brook.  Trower knows this Coast so  intimately, the "headless centipedes" of derelict outport jetties, the snail's pace of sea-  bound log booms and the rough  and dangerous logger's life, that  he writes with both beauty and  authority.  But he also takes us further  afield. The drunks and hookers  of Granville and Main Streets  have lives now, not just faces.  Though earthbound, the reader  experiences hang-gliding, coast-  bound, we tour America's west  with a wanderlust that will be  cherished again in the cold coming months.  Yes Trower is a great talent.  We are indeed blessed in this  seaside town to have him as our  own. One cannot help but draw  a comparison to another  seatown, this one in Weslyan,  Wales. Little did those workaday Welshmen suspect that their  Dylan was to be perhaps the  greatest of modern poets.  After entering Unmarked  Doorways it is easy to see a time  when Gibsons may become  known as Peter Trower's home.  Read the book and see for  yourself.  by Maureen Sadler  In the fall of 1984 the  members of the Suncoast  Needlearts Guild, under the  guidance of Leonida Leather-  dale, decided to embark on a  major project.  After several considerations,  it was determined that an  the history of the Sunshine.  Coast would be a suitable subject.  The big job of researching the  background material was  started in the spring of 1985.  Members visited and talked  with long time residents; perused at length and gleaned pertinent information from innumerable publications, both  current and old. We collected  photographs and anecdotes  from the young and not too  young from Egmont to Port  Mellon.  By the fall of 1986, it was felt  we had amassed enough information, photos and new  members to take the next step.  All the material was sifted  through and what was felt to be  the most notable, interesting  and meaningful were selected  for the actual embroidery.  In the spring of 1987 Leonida  took our material and ideas to  well known local artist Linda  Molloy, and outlined what we  had in mind. Linda was very interested in the project and  agreed to do the art work. Her  marvelous interpretation of our  ideas both inspired and intimidated us all.  Leonida encouraged us all  and took on the task of  transferring the drawing onto  the piece of linen twill on which  we would hopefully turn into a  work of art. Once this was  done, she selected and separated  all the wool and floss into  packages which would be used  in each phase of the project.  Finally it was time to set up  work schedules. It was decided  to work in pairs. Using 14 inch  hopps, we began on the outer  extremities and worked our way  into the centre.  As we progressed, we found  that we had to separate^our .  pairs, so that one came in^the;Yy  morning and one in the after-;f*^  noon, working four and .-fivi^V  hour Shifts. Each memberTchqse|)&  a day of the week suitable 0  her. If she had to miss a day,  she found an alternate worker  to replace her or traded a day.  The final stitches were completed in July 1989, two years  Mural depicting Sunshine Coast history. (See story)  ���David Fraser photo  and four months of joys and  frustrations, but always progress. Actual working hours for  the project was 3360.  Leonida Leatherdale washed  and blocked and mounted the  finished embroidery - ho small  task - and Jim Molloy of  Shadow Baux Gallery did the  framing.  We all feel very proud of being a part of this wonderful project. When it reaches it final  home we hope the residents of  the Sunshine Coast will enjoy  viewing it as much as we have  enjoyed stitching it.  Members of the Suncoast  Needleart Guild are: Irene  Crabb, Leonida Leatherdale,  Dorothy Parsons, Maureen  Sadler, Beps Swanson, Marcella  Decair, Betty McKay, Mary  Pellatt, Flora Sayer, Eleanor  Trumpour, Bernice Lawson,  Pat Nealy, Esther Reid, Clara  Shearer and Fiona West.  The moment of truth had arrived, with trembling fingers  and a great feeling of insecurity  the work began in April 1987.  In the beginning a great deal of  'reverse stitching' (a nice term  for tearing out everything  you've just finished) was done,  but as our confidence and en  thusiasm grew, and with the encouragement and guidance of  Leonida, we all became  believers.  This project can truly be called a labour of love. For those of  us who live in the Sechelt area,  working on the mural has been  easier than for our members  who have travelled weekly from  Gibsons and particularly from  the Pender Harbour area,  chalking up some 5000 kms.  & ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION  ffijfo        Branch 109, Gibsons  "^    Ladies Auxiliary  Dinner & Dance  Friday, September 29       ,  Tickets S7S0 each ���  Music by the Music Man  Happy Hour 5:30 pm m ��� '  iTickets may be purchased at the Legion Bar or Sunnycrest Photo {  SE__s___g_____  + **** + *******+****���****<*********  * Independent Representative-Sheila Marion J  Fifth Thenae Collection \  OPEN HOUSE  Gibsons - Cedars Inn -<aj��^_  +  *  Date: Wed., Sept. 20, 1-8pm *^jp& +  Sechelt - Driftwood Inn  Date: Thurs., Sept. 21, 1  0*        *  1:30 pm *  ^SO^^lS^!3^!��!!tls^t_KSffiSS>mm9S^^9K<  ^^"*^t��  TOURIST AND RECREATION GUIDE  "*-< *?  -^" xi v  *������*.><  H-*-*  v"*/"!**    '.v.

The RCMP Bison Band performed in its well known enjoyable and professional manner last Tuesday  at the Elphinstone School Gym. ���Vem Elliott photo  Police Band delight  by George Cooper  The Bison band brought lively, polished entertainment to the  Coast last week. Band members  were ambassadors of good will  for the RCMP. Proceeds from  the concert will benefit some  worthy community project yet  to be named.  Certainly the members of the  Gibsons detachment in their  formal scarlet added a friendly  note to the occasion.  The audience, perched on  those highschool bleachers,  soon forgot their discomfort  until time to stand to go home.  Great quavering quarter-notes!  Has the school no chairs?  But the band despite its wearing travel schedule - they were  off next day for instance, to  Chilliwack and Mission - showed an easy rapport with the audience.  Kerry-Anne Kutz sparkled as  emcee, and each member of the  band appeared to be enjoying  the program as much as the  blokes on the bleachers.  "When I asked my daughter  if she was looking forward to  the concert in the afternoon just  for students, all I got was a  shrug and a ho-hum," said  Sergeant Ed Hill of the Gibsons  RCMP in his relaxed and  amiable introduction, "but  afterward I didn't have to ask  what she thought of the band  because she told me in great excitement that the school kids  were right with it, and half of  them down to the floor to  dance." (And off the  bleachers).  Lots of folksy music. A song  of Rita McNeil's, for instance,  and Kerry-Anne with her  astonishing voice range with  Ain't No Cure For Love and  Each Time which she wrote and  orchestrated.  The band in a resounding  rendering of the theme music of  the Calgary Winter Games, and  the theme music for Gzowski's  CBC morning program.  And an intricate number for  classic guitar by band member  Pierre Shields drew prolonged  applause. Solos, too, of trombone, saxophone, mouth organ,  trumpet. Even a dance number.  The theme of the N.W. Territories   pavilion   in   Expo  '86..."all kinds of styles across  the miles..."; a couple of  French songs; and Just One  Voice all reminded us what it is  to be Canadian.  And a couple of audience  participation songs. One of  these had a line supposedly in  Japanese, but our Japanese resident here could make no sense  of it, to their disappointment.  Another song with Constable  Pat Murphy deftly turning the  large cue sheets.  We all came away happy indeed.  But what has happened to O  Canada no longer heard at  public gatherings. This band,  I'll wager, could have done a  thundering good O Canada.

Family reunions are fairly common, but this one was different.  It was the first time for months that the Soundwaves have  been together. Singers, instrumentalists and the non-  performers who are our life support system had travelled from  all over this little strip of  coastline to meet, review the last  season and plan the next one.  New-comers and old-timers  mingled over refreshments,  and, as the social columnists are  wont to say "A good time was  had by all".  Was it really four months  since we had been dancing, with  much waving of hands, and  singing "Oh, I can't sit down"  in the Roberts Creek Hall?  Dramatized scenes from West  Side Story, Sound of Music,  and Porgy & Bess were  presented at five performances  in May. What was in store for  us now?  Lyn Vernon, the mother-  figure of this extended family  teaches, encourages, coaxes and  lays down the law so that we  know where we stand. She is a  musician par excellence, and to  her musical progeny she is mentor, miracle-worker, talent  diviner and transformer of  moths into butterflies.  Her extended musical family  are not related, but the bond of  music makes us kin. In years we  range from teenagers to seniors,  and discover once again that  we're more alike than different.  Like all families, we try to  support each other in spite of  minor differences. We can take  our cue from the music, where  disparate notes sort themselves  out, find their proper place and  quietly resolve the discord.  Director Lyn Vernon controls  all this with a masterly touch,  making us work hard to reach  her high standards.    Y'���'"'  You will have the opportunity to hear the choir and orchestra when they present a  Christmas concert. Details will  be leaked to the press as time  goes by. Stay tuned.

I rolled my rented  185 cc Honda trail bike into the cool shade of a lakeshore  taverna, one of many low-price eateries throughout Greece.  The choice for lunch was souvlaki, skewered cubes of lamb  barbecued over coals, a cheap and delicious meal.  Memories of partaking in that national dish flooded back  last weekend when I visited Pronto's Restaurant in Gibsons.  There is a Pronto's in Sechelt as well. Both offer Greek and  Italian dishes - pizza, pasta, grilled steaks and pork chops,  and other delights.  Lamb is to the Greeks what beef is to North Americans.  You'll find the bulk of sheep flocks wandering the mountainous regions of Greece, which pretty well makes up most  of the country. Incidentally, on mountain roads sheep  definitely have the right of way.  The souvlaki at Pronto's comes on a bed of Greek Salad  with rice pilaf for $9.95, Greek salad consists of cucumber,  tomato, olives, and feta cheese, the last-mentioned a pungent  and sharp product of goat's milk.  The whole salad is smothered in olive oil, an ubiquitous  component of most Greek dishes. The oil and goat's cheese  takes some getting used to but I love both their taste and  health-giving properties. You may find yourself mopping up  the remaining oil on your plate with crusts of bread, as I do.  My dinner partner indulged in the homemade fettucini with  shrimps. The cream sauce is rich and my companion loved it.  The fettucini dish comes with a green salad and choice of  dressing for $7.75.  For dessert Pronto's offers a sinfully rich choice of three  delicious cakes - chocolate cake, carrot cake and chocolate  cheese cake.  Service was prompt and courteous in spite of a very busy  Friday evening.  Pronto's Steak, Pizza and Spaghetti House is located in  Gibsons on Highway 101 (near North Road) and in Sechelt at  5547 Wharf Street.

PALS has been very busy  :over the summer months.  ���Meetings last spring with  ���representative of our local  jgovernment bodies resulted in a  ���clear and concise terms of  ���reference for an action plan for  '.the delivery of leisure services  jand facilities on the Sunshine  jCoast.  \   PALS was then asked to put  'out to tender this action plan.  iThe terms  of reference were  [submitted to the four consulting  ���firms recommended by Mr. Bill  {Webster, Executive Director of  (BC   Recreation   and   Parks  ^Association.   Three   of   these  (firms submitted proposals by  'the June 16 deadline date.  I   Copies of the proposals were  ^circulated among all of the local  ^governments, the Town of Gib-  jsons,   the    Sechelt   Indian  jGovernment District, the Sunshine Coast Regional Board and  !the District of Sechelt.  I   On July 17 PALS and the  .committee met once again and  (PERC   (Professional   En-  jvironmental   Recreation   Consultants)   was   unanimously  'chosen as the firm that could  ��most effectively complete the  ���action plan as set out in the  'terms of reference. Committee  ^members agreed that PERC's  'extensive experience with planning   for   leisure  services   and  facilities in other small rural  /���communities would result in a  ^document which addresses the  leisure   needs   of   all   Coast  residents.  Committee members subsequently telephoned other communities to confirm that recommendations made to them by  PERC are, in fact, being implemented.  After the decision was made  to commission PERC to complete the action plan, the issue  of how to fund the project was  addressed by the committee. It  was decided PALS would write  a letter to the Honourable  Minister of Cultural Affairs,  Recreation and Culture, Rita  Johnston,   requesting   the  necessary funding.  A copy of the request was  forwarded to our local MLA  Harold Long. At this time, a  reply is being anticipated.  PALS is holding its first annual general meeting on October 16 in the Community Use  Room at Roberts Creek  Elementary School beginning at  7:30 pm. PALS will be providing an update regarding the  delivery of facilities and services  for all Sunshine Coast residents.  Elections will be held and  memberships will be available.

Since it is one  of the harder aspects of the  game to learn, it will require  more than one week to give an  adequate explanation of how to  go about it.  In order to slide properly, one  must have the proper footwear.  The sliding shoe, to be properly  equipped, must have a slick  material covering it from toe to  heel. One material commonly  used is Teflon.  The basic positioning of the  body prior to the delivery is  commonly referred to as the  stance. Proper stance must be  achieved if the delivery of a  stone is to be successful.  Proper stance involves:  a) Proper placement of the  sliding foot in the hack;  b) Correct positioning of  knees, hips and thighs;  c) Proper extension of the  throwing arm and broom arm;  d) .Keeping head and upper  body in an erect and relaxed  position.  More yet to come in the  weeks ahead on the slide.  Over the next few weeks, the  curling club will be advertising  its leagues and times. Watch for  those ads and be sure to take  note of convenient times for  you to curl.  Phone Ed Hill at 886-3925,  Larry Penonzek at 886-9134 or  Doreen Stewart at 886-7891.  Any one of them would be  more than pleased to sign you  up for a fun season of curling.  Some older adults are not  content to only live longer.  They want to live well. That's  the focus of Choosing Wellness,  an initiative of the BC Ministry  of Health.  Doris Fuller welcomed over  40 men and women to an 'information meeting' at St. Bar-  tholemew's Anglican Church  Hall on Wednesday morning  and invited them to help  themselves to any of the excellent books and pamphlets on  the subject Choosing Wellness.  Since June a Choosing  Wellness group of 15 to 20  seniors has met monthly in  Sechelt. There are also groups  forming in Madeira Park and  Gibsons.  Choosing Wellness is a program of healthful living for  seniors who want to have a  choice over their own aging process. The program provides information that helps seniors  deal with many common concerns about health and lifestyle  changes.  One premise of the Choosing  Wellness concept is that friends  are good medicine. "Being well  is not just the absence of illness.  It's when social and emotional  needs are being met," says Sandra Hughes, who has helped set  up groups on the Sunshine  Coast. "Some illness is related  to pure loneliness."  Providing opportunities for  seniors to meet can prevent illness. Hughes says Choosing  Wellness is aimed primarily at  seniors who don't get out much.  People who have experienced a  loss are more likely to get ill  than those who haven't.  Hughes points out that each  community has individual  needs. That is why the Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit, acting as  facilitators, gets seniors in different communities to fill out  questionnaires to find out the  kind of services they would like  to see in their communities.  At information meetings,  seniors are asked to rank in importance such services as affordable housing, a seniors drop-in  centre, transportation, resources for self-help, buddy  systems, telephone trees, hobbies and crafts, extension  courses, forums and discussion  groups.  Other issues of concern are  legal services, home maintenance and exercise programs.  At the Gibsons meeting seniors ranked affordable housing  and a drop-in centre as their  chief areas of concern. Hughes  says weekly drop-in programs  are being set up at the United  Church, Anglican Church and  Roman Catholic Church in Gibsons. Eventually, it is hoped to  provide inexpensive hot noon  meals, games and a place to  meet and talk.  Hughes says the Gibsons  'Meals on Wheels' program is  an excellent service. "But the  people are still alone."  "We have an excellent Home  Support Society here on the  Sunshine Coast but the longer  we maintain good health, the  less need we will have for the  services of the Home Support  Society^' says Gwen Robertson.  Several seniors described  drop-in centres which they had  attended in other parts of  Canada and one, especially, in  North Vancouver called 'Silver  Harbour' which was described  as a 'hive of activity' with lunches served, games played,  discussion groups, etc.  It was proposed that this  group form a society in order to  apply for funds for the  establishment of a drop-in centre. Everyone appeared to  agree.  The next Choosing Wellness  meeting will be held at the Coast  Garibaldi Clinic on Monday at  10 am.  For more information about  the Choosing Wellness program  call Doris Fuller at 886-9985 or  the Garibaldi Health Unit at  886-8131.

Since its inception in 1919 the  organization has grown to a  membership of 12,000 women  belonging to 118 clubs across  Canada.  One of its newest member  clubs is the CFUW of the Sunshine Coast which is beginning  its third year with a membership  drive. Besides enjoying new  friends, members find they  benefit from sharing their  education with one another as  well as their community.  By means of guest speakers  or club projects members are  stimulated to have an intelligent  interest in public affairs, be they  social,   political,   cultural   or  taining high standards of public  education in Canada is an important goal of CFUW. In this  regard bursaries and grants are  awarded to high school and  university graduates.  This year the CFUW of the  Sunshine Coast will be offering  a bursary to a mature woman  student.  At the national annual  meetings, club representatives  vote on resolutions relating to  education, the status of women,  human rights and the quality of  life. The national organization  and member clubs then make a  concerted effort to have the  adopted resolutions implemented by the appropriate  level of government.  New members are welcome.  With a larger and stronger  membership the Canadian  Federation   of   University  scientific. They are encouraged  to participate in such affairs to  the fullness of their qualifications.

A Taxing Woman (made in  1987 by writer/director Juzo  Itami) is a bitingly funny satire  of the corruption that lurks  beneath the facade of Japanese  politeness.  Juzo Itami, who has cast his  wife in the lead role, has made a  big and sudden splash on the  Japanese film scene (Tampopo  1986).  The concept of 'taxing' is explored in another sense with the  1975 Canadian short Tax: The  Outcome of Income which will  precede the feature.  Admission to all films in the  Fall Series is $3.50, $3 for  students and seniors at the  door.  LIFE DRAWING SESSIONS  On September 19 at 10 am  the regular Tuesday Life Drawing Sessions at the Arts Centre  resume. These sessions are  designed as an opportunity for  artists to come together to draw  from a live model and many  make it part of their regular  routine.  Bring your own drawing  materials (avoid any which  might stain the rug) and $3 to  cover costs.

At the Arts Centre  by Ellen Frith  It's difficult to go into a book  store in Britain without noticing  the popularity of Helen Forrester's many novels. She is one  of U.K.'s best and favourite  authors but, fortunately for us,  she lives in Canada and near  enough to the Sunshine Coast to  attend a Canada Council sponsored reading at the Sechelt Arts  Centre on Friday, September  22. I, for one, can hardly wait.  Perhaps Forrester's best  known work is her four volume  autobiography Twopence to  Cross the Mersey, Liverpool  Miss, By the Waters of Over-  pool and Lime Street at Two.  These are an intriguing, plain  HELEN FORRESTER  Rhythms  of Life  speaking and blatantly honest  insight into a young girl's life  dominated by dire circumstance  and parental domination. For  anybody who has ever thought,  even for a fleeting moment, that  being poor was romantic, Forrester explains, without self-  pity, just exactly how hard it is  to grow up deprived of even the  simplest needs.  Besides these non-fictional  works, Forrester has written a  good number of novels which  are warm, witty, full of  believable characters, and each  with subtle descriptions which  allow the reader to create the  various scenes in which the  stories evolve in sharp detail.  One of her best is Three Women  of Liverpool.  Forrester lived through the  Liverpool Blitz during World  War II and she uses the experience effectively in this novel  Handling crankiness  by Penny Fuller  Crankiness is a normal part  of the human condition. There  isn't anybody, even your  favourite saint, who doesn't  ,wake up some mornings wanting to chew out everyone they  come in contact with.  Even the most spiritually  evolved being sometimes feels  like a bear coming out of hibernation. The difference between  saints and us normal Joes is in  the way we handle those moods.  The planet Mars, named for  your favourite warmongering  deity, has created a bad name  for itself, stirring up trouble  whenever it passes by a place in  the sky that coincides with a  sensitive spot in a person's birth  chart - like where the Sun or  Moon were located when that  person was born.  Astrologically, Mars represents aggression/assertion, that  high-energy, sometimes combative aspect of your personality, that keeps the adrenalin  flowing. When it lines up with a  place in the heavens that .fe  significant to you, you're liable  to experience an overload of  that energy and it can cause problems, r  This week, Mars enters the  sign of Libra and it will move  through that portion of the sky  until the first week of  November. This will affect  anyone born when the Sun was  in Aries (March 21 to April 21),  Libra (September 24 to October  23), Capricorn (December 22 to  January 20) or Cancer (June 22  to July 22). These people, in  particular, will feel the need to  assert their egos quite strongly  for a two or three day period  during the next six weeks.  While the actual stressful  time only lasts a few days, the  after effects can be quite  destructive if you don't watch  yourself. There are two distinct,  but equally unhealthy ways that  these signs are likely to handle  this energy. y|  Aries and Capricorn are both  liable to explode at people  around them. The problem is  that the force with which you  express your dissatisfaction may  be out of proportion to the  issue, and the reaction you get  may be equally exaggerated.  Then you have to apologize  later and often the essence of  the problem, which was valid,  gets lost in the effort to patch  things up.  Libra and Cancer, on the  other hand, are more likely to  swallow their angry feelings and  simply become somewhat self-  destructive. This can result in  something as minor as a headache or as major as a car accident.  Probably any issue that arises  Art rental  September 25 from 10 am to  1 pm is the next date to select an  original painting or print to enjoy in your home or office during the "colourless" days of  winter ahead!

But  communication isn't facilitated  by either explosions or  withdrawal. When you experience that anger, try to find a  physical outlet for the surplus  adrenalin before you do  anything else.

Then decide the best way to  discuss the problem with the  other people involved. Try,  when you're talking to them, to  avoid blame and simply express  (in words) the irritation you're  feeling.  It would also be helpful to  others if, when you know  you're feeling cranky, you warn  them. You don't have to justify  it or apologize. A simple warning of "I'm feeling really irritable today. I'll try not to snap  at you but maybe you could  help me by just staying out of  my face for a while."  That way people are less likely to aggravate you or be hurt  by a sudden explosion.  as in the last volume of her  autobiography.  Liverpool, albeit in friendlier  times, is also the setting of  Liverpool Daisy, Forrester's  warm-hearted story of an Irish  woman earning a few extra  shillings walking the streets.  There is one novel set in  Canada, The Latchkey Kid  which reveals the sometimes  ridiculous social climbing which  takes place in small towns, iri  this case, one in Alberta. Forrester now lives in Edmonton  and has done so since 1953  when her husband, a native of  India, joined the staff at the  University of Alberta.  She has also written The  Moneylenders of Shahpur set in  India.  At 70 years old, Forrester is  undaunted by the severe tribulations of her early years and says  she has no intentions of giving  up writing books. In fact, in October, she is off again to India  to research another novel.  By all accounts Forrester is a  popular reader, as good storytellers usually are, and she told  me in a recent telephone conversation she is "most anxious to  visit the Sunshine Coast."  Friday, September 22, promises to be an enjoyable evening. Join us at the Sechelt Arts  Centre.

This type of community spirit  is to be highly praised and  shows a sincere interest in the  school and its activities. This  will make for a much nicer play  area for the children as well as  adding to the aesthetic value of  the project.  Yet another work party project is planned for the new Halfmoon Bay Child Care Centre on  September 23 and 24. The goal  is to put in the water, electricity  and sewer.  Please show up at the new  school at 9 am and if you cannot work perhaps you could  help provide refreshments.  If you plan to help please call  885-3654 or 885-5147.

WEDDING BELLS  A pretty wedding ceremony  took place last week in Vancouver when Louise, daughter  of Grace Rutherford, formerly  of Halfmoon Bay exchanged  vows with Tom Ries. Donna  Mandelkau, a Gibsons resident  prior to moving to Vancouver  was Maid of Honour, while  Best Man was Mark Skelliscy.  Relatives from Toronto and  Winnipeg as well as friends  from nearer home gathered at  the reception at Brock House to  wish the happy couple well.  Louise spent her childhood  and school years in Halfmoon  Bay and I know that we all wish  Mr. and Mrs. Ries much happiness together.  A SPECIAL GUEST  Mr. Ed Surtees, a long time  and well known resident of  Halfmoon Bay, was a special  guest at last week's meeting of  the Suncoast Writers' Forge.  Despite his age of 91, Ed is alert  and fit and made the evening  most interesting by reading  from some of his written works.  He is one of the few Vimy Ridge  survivors left to tell tales of the  Great War and it is good to  know that he has kept records  of those years.  We sincerely hope that he will,  do us the honour of joining us  more often at Forge meetings,  which take place on the second:  Wednesday of each month at:  the Rockwood Centre.

Y  The emergency executive  committee discussed last summer's operations of the Provin  cial Emergency Program (PEP),  which included searches for  hikers at Gambier Island and a  local mountain in August. The  hikers were located unharmed  by search and rescue personnel.  It was pointed out that as the  Sunshine Coast does not have  its own radio station it would be  difficult to inform the community in the event of a major  emergency. The procedure  would involve contacting PEP  authorities who would in turn  contact CBC offices in Vancouver.  'It was rioted however that  this could be a convoluted way  of broadcasting emergency information as approval would  first have to come from head  offices in Toronto.  Also discussed was the lack  of an alternate route to  Highway 101 for emergency  relief operations, except for  Lower Road and a new loop  that will hook up Mason Road  and West Sechelt.

There was a total of three occupants in the vehicles  and all, fortunately received only minor injuries. ���Kent Sheridan photo  A visit to Port Mellon  by Kirtlye Woodruff  Air emissions from-the stacks  were also discussed. By 1990,  the smell of sulfur should be  reduced by a low order recovery  boiler designed to diminish  contact of sulfur with steam.  Electrostatic precipitators, to be  installed in three areas, will  remove particulate matter from  exhaust fumes, rendering them  invisible.  After each environmental  protection measure was described, our tour guide repeated  some variation of the same  statement: the upgrade would  enable the mill to operate better  than the strictest legislation now  JENNIFER EARWAKER  Legal  requires   or    will    in   the  foreseeable future.  A significant connection between increased production and  reduced pollution is notable by  its absence from the presentation.  Earwaker cited recent  government mandates on pulp  mills to reduce chlorinated  organics to 2.5 kilogram per  tonne by December 1991 and to  1.5 kilogram per tonne by  December 1994.  It was boasted that HSPP  would be four years ahead of  schedule by meeting the 1.5  kilogram per tonne limit by  1990. But the projected production increase from 665 to 1000  tonnes per day results in the  total amount of chlorinated  organic pollution being not  much different than current  levels.  Also not mentioned on the  ..tour, but revealed in a company  brochure, is the landfill disposal  of filtered impurities resulting  from the recycling of chemicals.  The discussion  focused  on  consumer preference for white  paper products  as  being  the  reason for bleaching the pulp  which, in turn, causes pollution.  I might add, the expansion is a  predictable investment response  to an increasing market for pulp  and paper of all kinds. If the environmental position of the industry  seems   overstated,   the  consumer   complicity   in   the  economic realities should not be  overlooked.  ����  Ministry of Transportation  and Highways  Honourable Neil Vant.

With  hearing protectors in place, the  loud, regular pounding, that resounds throughout the "hot,  steamy room, was dulled.  Our group was led up a flight  of stairs into what was called  the 'control room', reminiscent  of the helm of the Starship  Enterprise. A brightly coloured  line schematic, which looks like  a Manhattan transit map, was  displayed above the observation  window.  Below, the wall was lined  with computers and a panel of  gauges and knobs, provided, we  were told, to form pulp to  customers' exact specifications.  Our guide noted we were in  the best control room, the only  one ynth ,natur^.;Ught..and. a  view.'. Before ^protected, control  rooms were ��� added, workers  were' directly exposed to thie  heat and noise of the production line.  The process taking place was  fascinating. A mixture of 99 per  cent water and one per cent pulp  is pumped onto a forming  screen, called a fourdrinier wire,  which removes enough water to  form a continuous mat of pulp.  Three sets of press rolls  squeeze out half the water,  which is then evaporated to 15  per cent, passing through an  80-fan dryer from end to end 21  times. The sheets looked to be  as wide as a bed sheet is long.  Back inside the forming  room, we witnessed the  finishing where pulp moves  along the conveyor, is cut into  sheets 30 inches by 33 inches,  stacked in 225 kilogram piles  and then is pressed, wrapped  and bound with wire into shipping bales.  I expected to see a lot of  workers in direct and vigorous  contact with production but a  single man staffed the control  room and about six others were  behind a panel of glass on the  production floor, responsive,  the tour guide said, to the sound  of a buzzer which signals any  problem in the automated process.  We were then guided into a  room where tests are conducted  on the pulp about every half  hour to determine dirt count,  moisture content, brightness  and viscosity. A computer  records statistics each time a  bale passes along the conveyor  belt.  Our guide brought out a sheet  of finished pulp for inspection.  It was a bright white, with the  weight and feel of smooth cardboard, and it tore irregularly.  The name Kraft (German for  strong) pulp seems apt for this  product of complex and intensive processing.  And so I have added the company presentation to my notion  of the 'elephant5. This giant  knows how to present its best  image. The pretty, young guide  fully advised tour groups of the  superlatives and environmental  protection efforts that could be  claimed.  No longer is the Port Mellon;  mill only a confusing collection  of towers and structures,  permeated by sights, sounds,  smells and a construction vitality. And now I look at the Kraft  paper in my typewriter in a new  way.  ��BM____i_taMMfl__ft_Mlf_k^ :?���>.--!���-  24.

"There's been a  massive change," says Pike,  who is serving his second year as  chief.  At that time there was a  brand new 1969 tanker truck  (still in operation), a 1952 fire  truck and a 1949 Chevy van  rescue wagon.  From 25 members in 1970 the  fire department has expanded to  30 members. But although there  is a full complement at the present Pike says applicants are  always welcome. He says the  department likes to have a  waiting list and currently there  is only one person on the list.  Pike says it's been a busy year  so far for the fire fighters, having responded to almost 100  calls to date. Last year there was  a total of 97 calls and "These  are legitimate call-outs," says  Pike, adding that false alarms  are "feathered out" by Anderson Alarms.  Pike says the job is a pretty  demanding volunteer service.  Calls come at any time of the  day or night. There are also  meetings every Wednesday  night and occasional weekend  training sessions.  Advance library poll  An advance poll for Saturday's library referendum will be  held in the offices of the Sunshine Coast Regional District,  5477 Wharf Road, Sechelt 11  am to 5 pm, Wednesday,  September 20.  Voters in Areas E and F of  the regional district (the areas  on either side of the Town of  Gibsons), will be asked to support the library with a slight tax  increase. The maximum  amount to be raised is $50,000  with the cost to the average  household of approximately  $12.  The advance poll is for the  benefit of eligible voters who  are unable to vote on September  23. On Saturday, polls will be  open from 8 am to 8 pm at  Cedar Grove School (for Area  E voters) and at Langdale  School (for Area F voters).  To be eligible to vote, you  must be 19 years of age or older,  a Canadian citizen and a resident for at least 12 months, a  BC resident for six months and  an Area E or F resident for  three months.  Eligible voters who are not on  the voters' list may be sworn in  by the returning officer on  voting day.  According to the library  board, a 'yes' vote will enable  the library to remain open, to  hire additional staff and to increase its collection of books,  and magazines.  Last Thursday's meeting of  the Mayor's Task Force on  Drugs got off to a pessimistic  start with only a handful of people present and feelings of  "where do we go from here"  being voiced by all.  "This small group cannot  function without the support of  the community," Mayor Diane  Strom said, but by the end of  the meeting, after ideas had  been bandied around, it was apparent the group's enthusiasm  would carry it through for  another month at least and  some interesting plans for the  fight against drugs on the Sunshine Coast were developed.  The lack of turnout at Thursday's meeting indicated, as  Strom said, "not everyone has  the same enthusiasm we do,"  and that "apathy is a tough  thing to overcome."  Apparently, several people  said, there are many in the community who voice praise for the  group's objective but are unwilling to participate in carrying  them out.  Sergeant Ed Hill of the Gibsons RCMP said it even more  succinctly: "The roar of indifference is deafening in this community."  A good indication, Hill said,  of an increase in drug use in a  community is a parallel increase  of crimes such as break and entry and theft which is, according  to Hill, what is happening in  Gibsons.  "There are people who are  committing crimes tonight to  buy cocaine tonight," he said.  It was decided the task force  should attempt to communicate  with each particular group in  the community in a fashion  which would indicate exactly  how the use of drugs in the  community affects that group in  ' particular.  John Kavanagh will have  posters printed up and ready for  the next task force meeting next  month encouraging residents to  report any drug activity to  Crimestoppers and Sergeant  Hill reiterated that the RCMP is  willing to address any group in  the community in regards to  drug use in this area.  The next meeting of: the  Mayor's Task Force on EJrugs is  slated for October 11.  Mayor's statement  After she seeks legal advice, Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  will make a public statement regarding the recent controversial firing of Work Superintendent Skip Reeves.  Strom agreed to this after Alderman Gerry Dixon told  council at last week's special meeting, that "people feel you  should make a statement".  "It will put a better air in the community," he said.
