See story. ���EBe_ Frith photo  Negotiations break down  In spite of attempts to trim its  budget 'to the bone' Sechelt  council brought in a 1989  budget last week that will see  residential tax rates go up 50 per  cent. This increase will change  Sechelt's ranking as the lowest  residential tax rate in the province to the fifth lowest.  Two changes have had a major impact on the budget:  salaries and an equipment  reserve fund. In a press conference held last week, Mayor  -Tom Meredith justified an additional $80,000 in administrative  salaries. He said the wages were  set by calculating the average of  10 municipalities of sizes similar  to Sechelt. The wages were then  brought up to slightly below  those averages.  "We had a very, very unhappy staff," he said. "Now they  are certainly not overpaid and  -they certainly are overworked."  In an attempt to alleviate the  workload on employees, two  additional administrative staff  have been hired and one  'casual' employee who has been  used almost full time has now  been put on staff.  An equipment reserve fund  of $182,000 has been set up to  purchase necessary equipment  when the need arises. The cost is  offset by a grant from the provincial   government   highways  department for the restructured  municipal district. According to  Meredith, there are no strings  attached to the $179,000 grant  but the ministry 'highly recommends' that it be used to purchase equipment.  Last year, Meredith said, only a small portion was used for  equipment purchase and the rest  was spent with general revenue.  The tax rate last year, he maintained, should have been closer  to four mils, rather than three  mils.  Grants to local organizations  are also up $11,000 from last  year's $20,000 budget.  Organizations that will be  receiving money from Sechelt  include: Travel Sunshine Coast  ($2500), Festival of the Written  Arts ($5500), Outdoors  Unlimited ($225), Elphinstone  Aero Club ($500), Sunshine  Coast Home Support ($3000),  Sunshine Coast Community  Services ($4000), Sechelt and  District Chamber of Commerce  ($9000), Sechelt Marsh Society  ($600), Sunshine Coast  Maritime Historical Society  ($1500), Sechelt Volunteer Fire  Department Jaws of Life  ($1200), Breakaway Program  ($500), RCMP Auxiliary ($600),  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce - brochure ($500), and  Chatelech bursary ($400).       ���  In addition to other grants,  the Arts Centre will be receivinjg  $500 and the library will have Us  annual grant increased tp  $27,000. :���  Ten thousand dollars has  been set aside to hire consultarit  George Cuff to do an administration study. \  Every taxation category will  see an increased rate this year.  Residential taxes climb from  three mils to 4.5 mils, utilities  from seven mils to eight mils.  The industrial rate climbs from  9.5 mils to 11 mils and t_(e  business rate from eight mils io  10 mils. y  The increases are expected id  generate an extra $392;494 this  year. Y  Howe Sound  sets priorities  by Ellen Frith  by Ellen Frith  The fire that filled Roberts  Creek on Thursday with smoke  and ash was coming from the  slash being burned on a newly-  cleared piece of property many  people had always assumed was  part of the regional park at the  mouth of the creek.  This small irregular lot has  been used as a park access for  many years and was home, bird  watchers say, to a remarkable  variety of their feathered  friends. The trees on the piece  of land might have been scrub  but the birds liked them.  Now the trees are gone, the  land has been cleared, ditches  have been dug, plans for a two-  bedroom house overlooking the  beach laid aiid everybody - the  people living in Roberts Creek,  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) politicians, the  park superintendent, even the  owner of the land who is  building the house - all shake  their heads sadly and agree the  prcjperty should have been  made part v f��� the park.  Why then is a house going up  on it instead?  Bob Michor, a representative  of the company who owns the  land, said he has repeatedly offered the lot to the SCRD and  now he's waited long enough.  "The SCRD would probably  have got a deal two years ago,"  he said, "but they never made a  serious offer. Now it's the only  building lot in Roberts Creek."  The company Michor represents is an individual who  divides his time between Vancouver and Toronto. He bought  the Roberts Creek lot in order  to build a retirement home on it  for his parents who presently  live in England.  Michor says the owner is well  aware of the significance of his  lot bordering as it does on the  park and would have been willing to make a deal with the  SCRD.  "He was willing to sell it,"  Michor said, "and to accept  payment in installments, or  even to exchange this lot for  another piece of property. The  SCRD never made a serious of  fer although they once offeree}  me a dollar!" ' i  Brett MacGillivray, SCRD  Director for Area D, said the lot  had always been offered to the  SCRD for around $70,000 and  that was far beyond anything  the SCRD could possibly raise.  "We just don't have the money  in the budget," he said, "and  that's the tragedy."  He told the Coast News the  SCRD had offered Michor five  acres of crown land as a swap at  one time but the provincial  government had vetoed that  idea.  Hans Penner, Area D  representative on the West  Howe Sound Recreation Commission (WHSRC) brought the  issue of the Roberts Creek lot  up at the commission's May 3  meeting.  At that time, Penner thought  the clearing of the lot wasn't going to begin for another few  days. "Call the owners and tell  them the regional district is  serious about buying the property," he said. "The owner  ,vtold  me  no  offer  has   been  made."  '. 'VWe have no way to raise  that ;.money," MacGillivray,  WHSRC chairman replied.  "We haven't made an offer  because we don't know where  the money is coming from."  MacGillivray later told the  Coast News the SCRD never  thought Michor would ever get  a building permit for the lot. He  said he always thought it was  too small and much too near the  creek.  "We're surprised he got a  building permit," MacGillivray  said. "We were hoping he  wouldn't."  ' "Nobody thought I would be  able to build on that lot,"  Michor said, "but I've worked  with the government and know  what has to be done. And I'm  completely legal."  With permission from the  federal fisheries, Michor plans  to extend the lot and reclaim the  land which has been eroded and  he has solved his septic tank  problem by investing in a small  Please turn to page 12  The West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission  (WHSRC) established the  priority of some of the projects  to be accomplished by the commission during 1989 at its May 3  meeting.  There were several suggestions for park improvements  and projects made but the com:  mission voted the establlishmenf  of a water supply at Cliff Gilker  Park in order to develop the ball  park was of top priority. The  projected cost of the project is  $15,000.  Hans Penner, Area D representative on the WHSRC said  he felt the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  should split the cost of this project since Cliff Gilker Park is a  regional one.  Area E Director Jim Gurney  said the SCRD did not have any  available funds left in its park's  budget. "It would be getting  blood from a stone," he said.  Although the motion to go  ,ahead with the project at Cliff  Gilker Park "did not include  mention of the SCRD sharing  the cost, Gurney gave his word  he would look into any  possibility of grant money or  other SCRD funds being  available to help defray expenses.

P.17  Fire threatens airport  by Phillipa Beck  B.C. Forestry placed a ban  oh all controlled burns Thursday after a brush fire May 1  destroyed six acres of slash and  ftarrowly missed the hydro  power lines at the Sechelt airport.:  Twenty volunteer firefighters from Sechelt, Halfmoon  , Bay and Roberts Creek battled  for five hours to contain the  blaze that was only half a  kilometre from the airport  buildings.  The fire caused no major  damage because it missed catching any large timber but  Hydro will have to replace one  power pole. B.C. Hydro's  district manager in Sechelt,  Wayne Turner, estimated the  repairs would cost approximately $3000.  The fire began in a 300 metre  pile of slash on the east side of  the runway. No one is considered responsible for the fire  and the causes are unknown  arid presumed to be accidental,  Sechelt Field Protection Officer  Mike Whitehouse said. There  will be no RCMP investigation.  Strong, gusting winds blew  the fire quickly through the  slash and toward the timber at  the back of the airstrip by the  time the volunteer firemen arrived at 2:30 pm, said Gerry  Gruner one of the firefighters  from Sechelt.  "It's the largest brush fire  I've seen," he said. "We got off  really lucky this time because  the woods weren't too dry. If it  were later in the summer,  everything could have gone  up."-     : y,  .'-":  While caterpillars and a  backhoe were digging a soil  guard around the fire, one of  the cats fell over on a hill near  Chapman Creek. The hydraulic  system failed and the firemen  were worried the driver was in  danger of being trapped by the  fire.  "There was no way he could  pull out," Gruner said. "He  was circled by flames on one  side. Then the water bomber  knocked the flames back and  the Sechelt Fire Department  dragged a pump through the  bush and we had lots of water."  B.C. Forestry personnel were  on hand immediately to assess  the fire. They had a bird dog (a  spotter plane) circling by 3 pm,  and by 3:30 a water bomber  from Abbotsford was on site,  Whitehouse said. The Forestry  workers stayed at the bum until  10 am the next, morning to ensure it was completely out.  The bomber made nine trips  dumping 150 gallons each time  before the blaze was contained.  A helicopter from the forestry  department filled its 50 gallon  bucket in Chapman Creek and  dumped continually as well.  The forestry bomber is a  remodeled DC 6 that has been  rebuilt to drop a red coloured  Please turn to page 12  Volunteer firefighters needed another cat to move this one before flames engulfed it during the:  Sechelt airport brush fire. -Gerry Gruner photo.

We would suggest that it is more a comedy of  errors.  Here we had a case where the SCRD and the land-owner  were in agreement that the land should become a park.  Negotiations took place for two years and got nowhere.  It does not seem unreasonable that the owner should ask  for $70,000. That would seem to be about the market  value of a lot on the waterfront in Roberts Creek. It would  appear that the SCRD was so sure that the owner was  bound up in bureaucratic red tape that he could never  build on the lot and this kept them from making a serious  offer on the property.  But Mr. Michor seems to be a resourceful fellow and did  manage to get all the requisite approvals to put a dwelling  right at the mouth of the creek.  There are serious implications to this case, besides the  great shame that the mouth of Roberts Creek, everybody  agrees, should have been a regional park and now may not  be.  A few months back Director Jim Gurney, the leading  opponent of restructuring, got so enraged at a restructuring meeting that he walked out of the room when Russell  Crum suggested that the flexibility and ability to take action of a district municipal structure was likely to prove  much more useful in the future for control of the development that is surely coming to the Sunshine Coast.  But one has to ask oneself if the SCRD cannot protect  the mouth of one of the Coast's best known creeks with an  owner willing to cooperate and after two years of trying,  how effective is it going to be if a tidal wave of development hits the Coast?  In contrast, the Town of Gibsons moved swiftly recently  to acquire the last waterfront space in Gibsons Harbour as  a waterfront park. The contrast between the ineffectuality  of the SCRD and the freedom of the municipality to take  action is something that should deserve careful consideration from all of us, whatever stand we have heretofore  taken on the subject of restructuring.  Questions  All is not well on the West Howe Sound Recreation  Commission. There is disagreement about the mandate of  the commission with some very respected and senior  members convinced that more and more of the commission's budget is going into regional parks.  Why is there this blurring of the two heretofore separate  functions? Was the seizure of the ac_ministration by the  SCRD meant to facilitate this obscuring of the two?  Are the residents of regional areas D, E and F being  double taxed for regional parks through the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission while residents of Areas A  and B continue to have the regional board provide them  with their parks?     .  thtffto* of  ���������M_lP��W_--��MW__*pi*B"-_H---_-______-p-______i  5 YEARS AGO  Tony Duffy not only won the 119 pound Junior Golden  Gloves title last weekend but was also named 1984  Golden Boy and selected to represent B.C. at the Canadian championships, May 25, 26 and 27 in Vancouver.  Duffy, who recently captured the Kelso Evergreen 119  pound title in a tournament against competitors from  Washington, Oregon and California, attributes his recent success to the tedious training program he's been  following.  In considering a recommendation by the Parks Committee that an application by Tom and Linda May of  Cockburn Bay Sea Farms to operate a fish hatchery on  Chapman Creek be approved, Regional Board Chairman  Jim Gurney recently reminded directors that they could  not adopt a motion which contravenes the board's own  bylaws or goes against its own land use regulations.  10 YEARS AGO  There was no space for wall flowers at Pender Harbour Secondary School's Grease Day Dance because  everyone was jiving and whatever else they did in the  50's.  Scores of youngsters, their parents and other area  residents turned out to participate in a highly successful Fun Fair at Roberts Creek Elementary School.  20 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek Committee working towards the  organization of a fire department has purchased an  unused fire truck from Sechelt for the price of $1.  30 YEARS AGO  The pace of events leading towards Sechelt's May  Day parade is increasing now that the May Day Queen  has been selected. She is Leila McDonald and her attendants will be Heather Lang and Avril Crucil.  It was announced at the Sechelt Board of Trade  regular meeting that James Parker was named a director of the B.C.

I lived in  Madryn Lodge, outside the  village of Rhydyclafdy, near the  town of Pwllheli, in the county  of Gwynedd, right in the middle  of very Welsh-speaking North  Wales.  Madryn Lodge had originally  been the gatehouse to Madryn  Castle and had once housed the  man   who   masterminded   the  'first trek of Welsh farmers to  !Patagonia in South America;; ���  There were ghosts galore in  that  little 250-year-old  house  'and they all sat beside me while  I wrote and read away the hours  of the winter afternoons.      |  Across the valley o��rshe|p  paddocks and stone walls,' whifri  I looked "up;*_ could"^see, ills  Snowdonia Mountains as sadly  misted as the day in 1282 wh#i  English King Edward I finally  subdued the rebellious WelsrL-  Further off in the other direction, was the Irish Sea calling  out its own history. What a  wonderful   place   this   is,   I  thought, the best on the planet.  Of course, I aminot the only  one who thinks North Wales is  wonderful. The Welsh themselves like it a lot and so do the  English tourists. 'Following long  established traditions, the latter  pour over the border from the  industrial centres of Northern  England at every long weekend  and with loud good cheer, pack  the local towns, beaches and  Butlin Camp to overflowing.  Lately, though, in Wales  there has been another visitor,  ���not as fleeting as the tourist,  land, in fact, one much more  like King Edward I. This new  visitor is the holiday home  buyer and his presence, with his  pocket full of cash from the  prospering southeast of  England, is driving up house  prices far beyond the means of  the  local   Welsh   population.  In a Nutshell  This is quite easily done as  Gwynedd has one of the lowest  per capita incomes in Britain.  Until a very few years ago,  houses in North Wales were  cheap to buy or to rent simply  because local families didn't  have much money. They still  don't but now when a village or  country house goes on the  market, it is so vastly overpriced only a 'foreigner' can afford it.  . And a foreigner usually ends  tip buying it. The place then sits  empty for months on end until  the owner's holiday time comes  Sip or it is rented but on a weekly basis to others who come and  go throughout the year. Either  way there is a disruption to  village life and one more young  tecaT family stays put with in-  "laW*or .iri'a ;tob-srhail.hodse  * ^^u^;the^ffca-i��^rfoi'dl any  thing else. ,: Y !'; : Y  ��k Inf''\Va1$s, where resentment  towards the English is a mere  scratch below the surface'at the  best of times, holiday homes are  now being fire-bombed. In fact  travel agencies renting put these  homes to English tourists are ��<.  also being bombed in as  faraway as London. Leave  Wales to the Welsh is the rally*  ing call to arms. ;.-< y  Actually protest against this  type of 'invasion' these-{lays  should not have any racial or  nationalistic overtones at all.  The colour of money the world  over is, after all, more or less  the same.. And the fact is the  outcry against a new monied  class buying up village and  country real estate is heard all  over England top, although not  as loudly and clearly as it is in  Wales.  Villages in counties such as  Lincolnshire and Norwich and  others in close proximity to  London have also closed Tank  against the 'foreigners'. In their  case it's 'those damn posh city  people'.  In Vancouver, of course, it's  the Hong Kong Chinese.  : Actually what is happening in  Vancouver, in Britain, just  recently in Northern France  because of the prospect of the  channel tunnel, and along the  Gold Coast of Australia among  other places is exactly what happened at the height of colonial  expansion. Only this time instead of particular nations carrying guns, bibles and beads in  return for whatever they  wanted, we have a certain class  of people of no particular nationality with cold hard cash for  trade goods.  These new colonialists are  trading it for real estate  wherever they can find it and  the Sunshine Coast is a very  pretty spot. It's almost as nice  as Wales.  Madryn Lodge was sold a  few months ago. The stairwell  from the living room to the loft,  inconveniently small since bed  frames and bureaus were invented, has been ripped out and  the whole place tailed up to  look like a country cottage in  Home and Garden. It is rented  out by the week for an  astronomical price far beyond  the reach of any but the most  well off and the ghosts have  moved out.  Laughter of the Gods  by S. Nutter  The story is told of  Nanabazoh, a demi-god of the  :Objibway. He is something like  (Prometheus fbr the Greeks,  i discovering fire for the people,  'etc.  On this occasion it had been a  long hard winter and the people  were starving. Finally a first  flock of the geese migrating  north arrived. They settled on a  nearby lake and Nanabazoh  !went into action. He wove a  Jong pliant rope of vines and  after nightfall, the geese all  'asleep, he swam out underwater  iancl tted the rope to the feet of a  number of good fat geese.  But he got greedy. .He tied up  ihorej and more geese until he  had them all, the whole flock, at  the end of his master line.  Returning to the shore. he  waited for the first crack of  , dawn and then gave the rope an  abnightly yank. All the geese  bobbed down underwater but  ; there were too many of them  and they bobbed right back up  again and took off. Nanabozoh  hung on and rose with them until he realized there was no  percentage in this and let go.  ���   When he landed he landed in  >a bramble patch,  y   There are of course many of  these stories among the Indian  tales of gods and men and one,  -particularly   perhaps   one   of  iJudeo-Christian   upbringing,  i cannot help but be struck by the  : rich broad vein of humanizing  ^humour intrinsic in the early  ^religions of our Native Peoples.  j   This is not, of course, to say  [other  religions  do  not have  Ihumour.   There   must   be  [warehouses full of smiling Bud-  fdhas -and both the gods on  f Mount Olympus and the shaggy  \ fplk in Valhalla had jckey cup-  | bearers.       Y. v'Y  I   Puck, if I remember rightly,  Jwas   a   character, from   the  [Druids.   Their   humour   was  foften pretty baleful but it wasn't  jcondemned as being irreligious.  i l-l think the only humour I  [remember from my early days  ���of church-going was the game  JumversaMyplayed by choirboys.  You try tb make the ones in the  stalls facing you laugh and such  is the rigid solemnity of the proceedings and, of course, the  whole environment, that quite  .'. hysterical results can be achieved.  Just leading a glance to the  new hat on the head of the Rector's wife, with the merest raise  of an eyebrow, could produce  something like conniptions. Innocent enough stuff among  choirboys secure in the  knowledge that they look like  angels.  Lately however we. seem  headed into a much more  serious question of humour applied to religion and coming out  'profane', 'sacriligious',  'blasphemous' and all those truly awful things.  I have not read Satanic  Verses by Salman Rushdie and I  don't think I'm going to. At 700  pliis- pages it's far too long for,  mi&,"and; from the reviews, it's  full of a kind of laboured symbolism I can do without. And a  kind of farcical humour that is  just too easy. You take  something that someone else ap  pears to believe in, turn it upside  down, and you have a laugh  riot.  However, sight unseen, I do  of course join the chorus  against Khomeini's sentence of  death by assissination against  Rushdie, against Penguin  Books and goodness knows any  number of others of us. It is according to the law of Islam.  People have looked it up.  We may be aghast and appalled at this but when it comes  down to it, there may not be  much that can usefully be said.  Maybe all we can do is repeat  and repeat that absolutely die  worst thing in the world is  dogma, any land of dogma.  There is an old definition of  comedy that perhaps our Native  People would have understood.  Comedy, it says, as distinct  from farce, respects reality just  as drama does.  The difference is that with  comedy we recognize that the  highest concept of mankind has  been the laughter of the gods.  ���;: V'* >����r -rr ��� ���-** j'rrY  ..'i*V '*-.��-"��-. ..^��.--��*"'���*,_,  flU-'-.-T*  **-.*���."-  ������-;'.-V    ������<;���--��� ������..'.-���.-"-,-��� v'-y?-''-'�����-'  ,--'>-, v?��*r"*V':fi "iirfi^fi'ilSsSiS  ,- /. .. ��� ,��� /��� - ?.  ;��?i  Coast News, May 8,1989  ji  i.'i  Editor:  It is with reluctance that I  write ,this letter but the  behaviour of pro-life activists  who continue to picket legal  abortion clinics disgusts me.  Whati right have they to harass  sorciii poor woman, mother of  an imemplbyed family with  several children who are going  hungry and ill-clothed to  school? Why should some other  woman's foetus become so extraordinarily precious?  I was a foetus once myself. I  don't remember a thing about  it. _yfy earliest vague memory  was yof standing in a forest  where, iri the branches'above,  there was a chattering of birds  and windy laughter. ..,'  Periodically the branches  bent down and gathered me up.  There was that soft presence  who sang a lullaby to me: my  mother. They were my family.  Later I went to our little  school, learned to read and  write and had fun in the  playground.  There was plenty of food on  our big farm in the Slocan  Valley. We grew and sold food.  We Were warmly dressed in  clothing we chose from the  mail-order catalogue of the T.  Eaton   Company.   We   were  \  never hungry nor cold.  Many years later I went away  to Montreal and married. When  I became pregnant I experienced  a wonderful feeling of rapture  'which other women told me was  given by nature to every expectant/mother. Only in hospital I  discovered that, even with all  the help the doctor could give,  childbirth is very painful. We  had plenty of money and were  neither, hungry nor cold.  But today there is great  poverty elsewhere in the world.  Human beings are multiplying  in such alarming numbers that  the ecology of our planet is endangered. More trees are cut  down to provide land to grow  food for the expanding population.  There will not be enough land  to feed all these people and we  must remember too that the  total amount of fresh drinking  water available on our planet remains the same.  A number of years ago China  passed a law to limit population  growth to two births per family.  I understand that India is now  beginning the same program. It  is not easy to.enforce and involves a slow process of education in family planning.  In pur country there has been  much argument since the  Supreme Court removed abortion from the criminal code. On  the political scene there is no  pattern which follows party  lines.  In B.C. two Social Credit  MLA's both women, favour  pro-choice, and also Maureen '  McTeer, wife of Federal Conservative Cabinet Minister Joe  Clark, and Mary Collins, Conservative MP.  In the last election 16 conservative women in Quebec who  ran  for  election  stated  they^  were pro-choice. Eleven of themY,  were elected. Y:  And most important of all, i  Barbara McDougall, Minister  Responsible for the Status of  Women, favours pro-choice;  Every New Democratic Party  MP, of course, voted pro-  choice.  A  pro-choice  organization,  Canadian Abortion Rights Ac- y?  tion League, funded a Gallup k  poll last October and found that  71   per   cent   of   Canadians y  believe abortion is a matter for Y  a woman and her doctor to  decide. This leaves the pro-life  activists with a very small scope  for their "rescue" operations.  And incidentally, whatever ;  happened to that pro-life walk  Support for French program  Editor:  I am concerned with certain  public misconceptions regarding  the French Immersion program  in School District 46. Though  the issue is a complex one, involving tangible and intangible  factors, certain misconceptions  are continually resurfacing.  Some people are complaining  about the cost of French Immersion. But the program has  not cost the school district. The  district has made money on the  program.  A federal-provincial protocol  details a complex system of  (grants.;WJ$& support the prp-  ' granifegr^^p^ /are apparently  | costsjpn-^^w^in the next five  ��� years, thei^psts level out.  Some people are saying that  immersion doesn't work. But  total immersion is the most cost  effective method of acquiring a  second language. Early immersion is very successful because  of the natural learning abilities  of young children.  Some people are saying that  immersion damages the  student's abilities in English.  But numerous studies both provincial and federal testify to the  fact that by Grade 7 an immersion student has the same  abilities in English as a student  who was educated solely in the  English language.  The immersion program has  been accused of skimming off  the brightest students in the  elementary grades. This is not  actually true though the self-  confidence created by coping  with s.tucUw^Tn^Ti^v language'\  may make the students appear  brighter after trie fact. Even if it  were true, can one attack a program because smart people  want it?  Parents are concerned that  teachers they like are going to  lose their jobs. No teacher in  this district has lost a job  because of the program. National studies show no evidence  of job loss by English only  teachers.  Unfortunately m _h of the  opposition to the French Immersion program seems to come  from jealousy and conscious or  subconscious racism- Childhood is the one chance to easily  and painlessly acquire a second  language, one of the most  valuable skills  a person "can  ingufJ.fa)untryL^^L,��ivpf n%2  great opportunity for ouir  children.

I live in, and was born in,  Canada, one of the world's  most free and democratic countries. I love this country but I  am worried.  Three weeks ago, in the Vancouver Sun, I read that  Canada's chief electoral officer  has grave concerns for the  democratic process. I share his  concerns.  x Traditionally, and legally,  each political party in Canada is  allowed to spend a given  amount of money towards an  ejection. This is as it should be.  Everyone, and every party, is  equal.  But now people with special  interests   can   spend   multi-  millions of partisan dollars to  promote their own ends. This  could very well be rewarded by  legislation favourable to their  causes.  The most blatant example is  an organization called the NCC  (National Citizens Coalition)  who spent millions advocating  'free trade' and saying among  other things, 'Ed Broadbent is  scary'.  No one knows for sure who  the NCC represents. The only  name obtainable from them is  of one man who will tell no one  who his principals are.  The press has learned that he  is a former American now living  in Canada. Who puts up these  millions to subvert democracy?  I believe the last election was  bought, not won democratically.-  This is something that can  easily be corrected. We need  legislation introduced to the effect that no private group or  organization can spend even  one dollar to promote a view  that could be considered  political during an election campaign. They can still contribute  within limits to their favourite  political affiliations.  Change cannot occur overnight but ordinary Canadians  must speak up and be heard  now.

Dean Graydon of Gibsons  recently applied for a business  licence for a mobile concession  stand which he calls The Bus. It  was his intention to use this  mobile stand to service construction sites around the area  as well as Brothers Park. The  park, he feels,>is a very lucrative  market when the summer sports  season is in full swing.  Traditionally, the concession  stand at Brothers Park has been  the Snack Shack run on a  volunteer basis by the Lions  Club. In considering Graydon's  licence which appeared likely to  cut into the Lions Club  businessjg^b^fl^^uncil felt it  woul<J^:^^f^^^|he; service  cl^b.^t^'^6w,'^6^0r^onces-  sioi-itimd'-ntb"'the?ip^k.\  Therefore, at the Committee  of the Whole meeting April 25,  council voted to limit  Graydon's business licence to  running a concession stand on  private property only. Brothers  Parks was out of bounds.  Graydon appealed this decision before council on May 2.  He said he had specifically mentioned the Snack Shack and a  possible conflict when he first  enquired about a business  licence at the municipal office a  year ago. He was assured, he  said, there would be no conflict.  "Since then I have invested a  great deal of time and money to  get a licence to service Brothers  Park," Graydon said. He was  still assured of the licence three  weeks ago.  On hearing Graydon's argument to council, Mayor Diane  Strom said that in spite of advocating free enterprise, she  didn't feel it was right to issue a  licence which might be in direct  competition with a service club.  "Because ,|hf-timoney goes i  back intercommunity \  charities^" Strom said; "it's un- i  fair to put another concession ,  stand to compete with the  Lions. This town has a commitment to its service clubs."  Graydon said the Brothers  Park is not served on a consis- .  tent basis by the Lions Club and  there were lots of times when  they are not there. "They're not  there the times I want to serve,"  he said.  He also said his concession  stand would provide his  livelihood and had the potential  of employment' for four people.  "But I have to serve more than  construction sites," he said.  Alderman Gerry Dixon suggested he help Graydon in  negotiating an arrangement  with the Lions Club which  would satisfy both parties  without direct competition.  "That   suits   me   fine,"  Graydon said but he is worried  about how long the process will  take. "Everyday is costing me ~  money," he said.  Larry Labonte, a member of  the Lions Club, told the Coast Y  N^ws that although he^ could  not say for certain, he^feUfsome  agreement ^between CJraydon  and the club could be arranged.  Early Settlers' Tea  by Gwen Robertson  On April 23, 1886, George  Gibson and his two sons landed  their handcrafted vessel, the  Swamp Angel, on the shores of  Gibsons and shortly thereafter  pre-empted land - the first  homesteading by the white man  on the Sunshine Coast.  Each year Gibsons honours  George Gibson and his family,  along with those who followed  -with an 'Early Settlers' Tea' or  'Pioneer Tea' where all early  settlers, their families and  friends will be welcomed. Tea,  cakes and goodies will be served  in the Marine Room on Sunday,  May 21 at 1 pm.Y    ;  We anticipate a good turnout. Some will: be dressed in  costumes, circa 1886, adding to  the occasion.  However, we would hope  that the lack of a suitable  costume   would   not   deter  anyone from attending. It will  be a happy occasion, reminiscing about the good times and  sharing them with children,  grandchildren, newcomers and  oldtimers.  Gibsons Heritage Society and  the Town of Gibsons wil provide pictures, music, good food  and, hopefully, good weather  for the occasion.  Remember, Sunday, May 21,  the Marine Room from 1 pm to  4 pm, is the Early Settler's Tea  and everyone is invited to dress  up for the day and for the week  until Sunday, May 28.  We are also inviting all of the  businesses, town council, services and societies to dress up  and help, us celebrate Gibsons'  heritage with flags, bunting,  pictures or whatever, for the  whole week of May 21 to 28.  Gibsons' early settlers were  hardy,  resourceful,  inventive  and helpful to one another but,  above all, they were 'quality'.  Better service  At last week's council meeting, Gibsons Mayor Diane  Strom said council should put pressure on B.C. Ferries to improve service to the Sunshine Coast.  "There are real hardships here when we've had the traffic  we've had," she said.  The problems were compounded recently, she said, by last  week's collapse of a ferry berth at Horseshoe Bay.  Strom feels a letter to B.C. Ferries could stress the importance of a good service to this area.  t  ���  ���  f  "The Mill and the Environment"  andthLpanel of i,y  &X2&* *"���   _i s��* \ ���������%%*Sss&&tor y  "T;     :^^^m&0&^^^^ Mr-   ��� ^���.anri's+jQftt ..Hr.tm,~y .-������  ta\*s ,r0^mns an�� -9��*   etc.  r   ���"���''*'      ���'���.������������>r.v."*.-''-  J  Canada Grade A Beef - Bone In  CHUCK BLADE  STEAK  kg 2.82     lb.

George    in    Gibsons  Birds begin  to self-feed  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The seeds lie untouched on  the shelf outside the kitchen  window now that food is no  doubt in plenty again in the  woods.  But last winter it was a busy  site and the small birds an entertaining company that took no  notice of our staring and  chuckling at their antics.  Weeks had passed after the  seed was first set out last winter  before any birds came to feed.  One can only speculate how  they came to discover the seeds  on the shelf. Does one questing  bird inform the others in some  way of his find?  Not likely, when observation  shows that a single bird is very  possessive of the shelf. This is  particularly noticeable among  the finches where one intolerant  female drove other finches away  with fluttering wings and parted  bill. And this female had but  one sound leg, the other was  skewed stiffly to one side.  Most easily driven away were  the timid males, their bright  rose markings a seeming irritant  to the dominant female.  Occasionally a Stellars Jay  thumped heavy beak on the  shelf in snatching up the few  sunflower seeds among the  millet. Hulls flew aside as the  bird cracked the seeds with  gusto.  Once or twice Evening  Grosbeaks flaunted their  distinctive markings of soft  yellow and white shadings. Now  and again a Rufous-sided  Towhee strutted about looking  for just the right millet grain. A  Varied Thrush came once, the  seeds no great attraction.  A starling gave the shelf the  once-over and left to do his spring fleeting elsewhere. Another  visitor could have been a Fox  Sparrow. Another a Western  Wood Peewee?  When the finches had moved  away, the Oregon Juncos at last  had opportunity to feed. Not  aggressive like finches, the jun  cos were nevertheless individually possessive of the  shelf.  Last of all came sparrows,  golden-crowned and white-  capped consorting together.  In cold weather, we read,  small birds must eat close to  their own weight each day to  maintain their vigour. Well, it is  not cold now but we'll leave  seeds out for a time yet.  MOTHER'S DAY PRAYER  A number of the churches of  the Sunshine Coast are planning  a joint, trans-denominational  'Prayer Rally' for the express  purpose of praying for our  mothers, families and communities on our Coast.

A collection will be  received for the Salvation Army  Family Counselling Services  here on the Coast.  NONAGENARIAN  The very best wishes to  Dudley Carter who turned 98  last Saturday, May 6.

Instead of honouring just one  outstanding citizen this year at  its awards dinner on May 31,  the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce will pay  tribute to five worthy recipients  of a 'Citizen of the Year'  award.  : The chamber feels it is important that volunteers in the community are repected and, with  that in mind, it will be devoting  its May dinner meeting to the  unpaid workers.  The problems, said Dick  Thomas who is organizing the  event, is to determine whom to  honour. "There are so many  diverse people who devote their  time to the community," he  said, "that choosing 'the best* is  impossible.  "So instead of honouring a  'citizen of the year', we have  decided to honour 'five outstanding citizens' and we!re convinced that Gibsons has at; least  five worthy citizens for this  honour.  "The chamber intends this  program to be an annual event.  They had a major plaque  donated and each year the five  outstanding citizens will have  their names engraved on the  plaque which will then be prominently displayed at the  municipal hall.  "We need the participation  of all the people in Gibsons and  the district to make this project  work," Thomas said. "We all  know one person who has done  outstanding work for the community in the last year."  The chamber asks that suggestions for possible recipients  of this award be submitted, with  a brief outline of the community services performed, to: The  President, Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce, Box  1905, Gibsons, or dropped into  the tourist booth in Lower Gibsons.  All submissions must be in by  May23.

It was great, nothing  much to worry about and we  could just enjoy retired life.  However, that all changed a  few years later. We were thrilled  when our first grandchild was  born but were soon faced with  an unknown horror.  We knew Laura was not well  when at around six months she  developed a funny little cough  and she also was not growing or  gaining weight like babies usuak  ly do.   . Y-  When I kissed her, her skin  always tasted a bit salty.  However, she looked as healthy  as could be so her problems  couldn't be too serious.  But at 10 months she was  diagnosed as having Cystic  Fibrosis (CF). We were absolutely devastated and didn't  Sechelt  Scenario  Citizens  applause  by Margaret Watt, 885-3364  Citizens of Sechelt, take a  bow! You are just the greatest.

Coast News, May 8,1989  B Ubib  understand this disease with no  control or cure. We found out  about it very quickly, along  with the procedures needed in  looking after a child with CF. .  My heart was broken, but  after you come to grips with the  situation and realize being  unhappy all your days will not  solve anything. I made up my  mind I could make a difference  and the Sunshine Coast Branch  of CF was bom. There have  been CF coin containers out,  concerts, raffles, garage sales,  donations and booths at various  functions to help raise money.  In all, $12,900 to date has  gone from the Coast directly to  CF research. I have had a lot of  people's help and encouragement, especially from my husband and my good friend  Marion who has kept my spirits  up many times.  The last few years have been  very encouraging for CF patients and their families, as they  are ever so near in isolating the  CF gene, which when accomplished, hopefully will bring  a cure for the thick and sticky  mucus that plays havoc with  these children's bodies.  So I look at Laura with a  great new hope and carry on  and enjoy every day I can with  this charming and courageous  little girl.

Alderman Mike Shanks told  Sechelt council last week that he  has met with representatives  from the parents' association  and the student council to  discuss the matter.  The Parent's Advisory group  from Chatelech has approached  Sechelt Council several times  about the lack of pedestrian access to the school. Shanks told  the meeting that the work will  begin as soon as authorization is  received from St. Hilda's  Church which owns some of the  property crossed by the path.  Within two or three weeks, he  said, the path should be brushed  and lights installed, providing  easier and safer pedestrian access to the school.  Sunshine Coast  Greaves Rd.     Pender Harbour.

Credit Union report  by Myrtle Winchester  The flavour of the April 28  Pender Harbour Credit Union  annual general meeting was  light and optimistic with only a  slight undercurrent of caution  about a fear of inflation.

Carey adlibbed the end of his  speech, a thanks to members,  staff and directors and convinced everyone present that the  Pender Harbour Credit Union  indeed lives up to its motto by  being 'a credit union with a  heart'.  Francis Lajiar, who declined  to run again for the board of  directors after holding a position there for five years, was  presented with flowers and a  warm thanks from the members  for her service.  President Joan Willcock,  celebrating her 42nd anniversary on the day of the meeting,  quipped, "I've-never had such a  good time on my anniversary."

Thank you for your cooperation, the Trustees.  as first  by Myrtle Winchester  The Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of Commerce is  calling for members from the  non-business community,  following discussion at its first  general meeting held last Friday  in Madeira Park.  The chamber hopes that  residents will let it know what  they want to see happen in their  communities, and the chamber  will do its best to see . that  Pender Harbour and Egmont's  requests are brought to a higher  authority and dealt with.  "Pender Harbour has the  largest tax base on |he Sunshine  Coast," said mfmber Larry  Curtis, "and there is a need for  representation from a business  as well as a community standpoint."  The Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of Commerce is  unique in that it will not exclusively represent the business  and tourism community; it will  work primarily for residents,  regardless of occupation.  The first order of business for  the new executive, elected at  Wednesday's meeting, is the rewriting of the by-laws with the  objective of streamlining and  simplifying the organization.  Other projects the chamber  discussed include a senior  citizens' housing complex, a  Pender Harbour and Egmont  museum and a - facelift for  downtown Madeira Park.  The new officers of the  Pender Harbour and Egmont  Chamber of Commerce are:  President Rob. Metcalfe, Vice-  President Bill Sutherland,  Secretary-Treasurer Bobbi Ben-  net, and Community Representative Logan Savard. The fifth  office of past-president will be  named at the next meeting.  The previous chamber,  disbanded about five years ago,  had a slate of 12 officers plus a  number of permanent committee heads.  _. The next meeting will be held  Jbn June 7 at 7:30 pm in the  Madeira Park Leeidn Hall.  Coast News opens  1  New Office in Pender!

"We don't need an Indian  agent to decide our development," he said, "there aren't  any external agents here that  run our affairs."  The federal government's  Native education policy, designed by Indian Affairs Minister  Pierre Cadieu, came into effect  at the beginning of April. It  eliminates day care subsidies,  travel equalization and counselling services for post secondary  Native students.  Eight Native students from  Thunder Bay, Ontario, held a  . month  long hunger strike in  April protesting the changes.  If  Vandalism to the washrooms  near Gibsons skateboard bowl  and conflict between the use of  the bowl by dirt bikers and  skateboarders were concerns at  both the Gibsons council  meeting last week and the  meeting of the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission  (WHSRC) on May 3.  There have been various  complaints from parents regarding bikers using the bowl and  keeping the more legitimate  skateboarders out. One of the  problems with the bikers, council heard, was the stones kicked  into the bowl by the bikes which  could then catch the wheels of  the skateboards. This has been  solved somewhat by the  blacktopping done on Thursday  around the lip of the bowl.  As for regulating the use of  the bowl by bikers, both council  and- me WHSRC could only ���;.  suggest asking more parents to  become involved when their  children are at the park;  Gibsons Alderman John  Reynolds felt it was possible to  perhaps talk to the bikers and  thereby come to some arrangement regarding the: sharing of  the bowl.  All of this would take supervision, said Laara Dalen of the  Brothers Park Skate Bowl  Committee.  "A municipal bylaw outlawing bikes in the bowl is the only  way to keep them out," she said  but points out this would also  involve strict supervision against  bylaw infringements;- .-  Sihe feels that enforcing the  1 use* of-y a helmet while skateboarding or bike riding in the  bowl is of much greater importance.  "Safety equipment must be  worn," Dalen says. "When you  buy your kid a skateboard, buy  a helmet for them at the same  time."  Gibsons Clerk/Administrator  Lorraine Goddard told the  WSHRC that vandalism in the  washrooms next to the bowl is a  terrible problem. "We can't  lock the washrooms because of  the campers," she says.  Since Brothers Park has been  sjre-opened   for   camping,   the  "washrooms are needed for people staying overnight.  Dalen told the Coast News  that last year Gibsons council  insisted the installation of steel  doors to keep vandals out was  their responsibility. "But they  ran out of money," Dalen said,  "and now there is plywood  where the steel door should  be."  The Skate Bowl Committee,  she says, has cleaned out the  toilets several times after vandalism. "If it's too much trouble for the town then take the  toilets out," she says.

Wilson  proposes that they stage this  next foray in broad daylight.  The very audacity of such an attack should catch the authorities  completely off balance.  Once again the groundwork  for the raid is laid out with  meticulous care. Their intended  target is a mail truck that leaves  a Los Angeles substation every  day in roughly the same area  that the first robbery was carried out. As in the initial crime,  Wilson and his gang rent room:;  across from the substation and  study the movements of the  bank messengers who deposit  money there. The frequency of  these deposits indicate that the  trucks are often carrying large  amounts  of cash  when  they  leave the building. The strike is  set for a day when the bank  deposits are most numerous.  At approximately 3 o'clock  on a sunny Friday afternoon,  Herb Wilson and his brother,  Lou, sit in a parked Studebaker  sedan on Los Angeles Street  between Fourth Avenue and  Fifth. The traffic crawls by in a  steady stream but only one vehicle is of interest to the Wilson  brothers and their confederates.  Soon the awaited mail truck appears snailing its way along in  the crush of cars.  As the truck idles by the  Studebaker, a burly man in the  khaki uniform of a post office  worker steps from the curb and  flags the vehicle down. Thinking the man a fellow employee  who needs a lift, the lone driver  obligingly stops and opens the  door.   The   khaki-clad   man  climbs in. As the door closes  behind him, the driver realizes  he has made a serious mistake.  The steel barrel of a revolver  rams into his side. "Just make  like nothing has happened and  keep driving, buddy," advises  Joe Bertsch in his raspy buzz-  saw voice.  "Oh no, not again," groans  the driver in honest dismay. By  an incredible coincidence.he is  the same man who was driving  the mail truck during the first  hold-up.  The hijacked mail truck rolls  away followed by the Wilsons in  the Studebaker. No one else on  crowded Los Angeles Street has  the slightest inkling that  anything untoward has occurred.  The truck and its handcuffed  driver are jettisoned in a prearranged alley. Carrying the mail  sacks, the Studebaker weaves its  way through the sluggish traffic  snarl towards a small house in a  quiet   residential   area.   The  house, along with several others  on the same block, is owned by  a fence and retired safecracker  named Tom Robinson. Robinson, in exchange for a small  percentage, has agreed to let  Wilson and the others use one  of his unoccupied houses in  which to divide up the loot.  Robinson ushers them into the  empty building and they begin  to rifle the money-stuffed sacks.  Robinson, unfortunately, has  recently married a widow who  knows nothing of his underworld     connections.      A  remarkably inquisitive woman,  she   sees   the   lights   in   the  supposedly-empty house, hurries over there and begins banging on the door, demanding to  know what is going on. "It's  half my house. I have a right to  know!" she shouts.  To be continued...

The bad news is that  Mercury, the planet of thinking  and communication, is going  retrograde (appears to move  backwards) on Friday. This indicates the beginning of a  period of time when communication and transportation  tend to get fouled up.  The good news is for anyone  writing exams this school year.  It starts to move forward again  (goes direct) on June 5, so finals  won't be affected this time.  Things usually get a Little  crazy when Mercury does this  dance (about three times a year)  but this spring may be even  worse than usual. First of all,  it's going retrograde in the sign  it likes to call home - Gemini,  the sign of the communicator.  Planets, like people, tend to  have power when they're  operating from home base.  Secondly, a lot of people are  already wondering if their  minds have taken a leave of  absence because of the activities  of Neptune and Saturn clouding  up the thinking process.  All in all it's a good time to  make lists, probably in  triplicate. Being organized can  smooth things out for you and  help to keep you on track during this time.  Some things you can be  aware of in advance and so take  preventative action now. Any  letters or mailing that needs to  be done (job applications, contracts, anything that's crucial)  send it out now. Mail seems to  get lost more frequently when  Mercury is retrograde.  If you're going to be doing  much travelling, get your car  checked out now, before Friday. Also double check and  confirm reservations of any  sort. And don't book your time  too tightly, make allowances for  delays, they'll be there.  If you're studying during this  time, the most effective way  may be to make tapes and play  them back to yourself. The subconscious mind will be registering better than the conscious  mind right now.  Make sure you have extra  batteries for anything you depend on: clocks, tape decks,  cameras, etc.  It is best to cultivate a sense  of humour and let this time pass  as quickly as possible.  One other thing to mark on  your calendar is the upcoming  energy influx that occurs on  May 15. As has been noted  previously, there seems to be an  acceleration of activity during  the few weeks preceding these  things (whatever they are) and  this next week may be an emotionally hectic one.  Funding for  management  Money has been put aside in  Sechelt Municipal District's annual budget to retain the services of Management Consultant George Cuff. Mayor Tom  Meredith told reporters last  week that Cuff will be retained  to do an administrative study on  the new municipal district.  When the Village of Sechelt  had its boundaries restructured  in 1986, Meredith said, there  was no adequate provision  made for the changing administrative needs.  Cuff will look at the current  staff, work load and work flow.  His report is expected to contain  recommendations regarding the  managerial practices and  organization of the municipal  district government offices.

We were sure about the friends and conversation part of  it but where to go for the food and atmosphere aspects?  The Wharf Restaurant in Davis Bay is indeed a popular  choice.  We, who are lucky enough to live on the Sunshine  Coast, sometimes tend to take beautiful scenery for  granted. Once in a while it is impprtant to really see what  we so casually look at every day. The Wharf offers just  such an opportunity.  A light haze, back-lit by the setting sun, threw into relief  the shapes of trees and mountains that usually blend into  one featureless silhouette. This was a subdued sunset of  misty blues and silver and. burnished gold, conducive to  contemplation or absorbing conversation.  And the food? - Ah yes, - the capstone of the experience. Truely fresh poached; salmon, topped by a  delicate sauce of shrimp and subtle seasonings and enhanced by baked potato, broccoli and carrots cooked exactly as  they should be.  My friend reported that her Weiner Schnitzel was equally satisfying. And Atti, the singing Maitre'd, was an unexpected bonus.  The verdict? A completely satisfying evening, in all  ways. This is where we take our friends when they ask us  why we left the bustle and excitement of the city.  Because of Davis Bay and the -Wharf.

The overall tournament winners were Jim Budd Jr., with  the overall low net and Mike  Manion with the overall low  gross.  First flight players (those with  handicaps from 0-13) had as second low net winner Paul Smith  (66), second low gross winner  Bill Sneddon (73) and third low  net winner Terry Duffy (67).  The second flight players  (handicaps from 14-17) had  Gary Robinson taking low net  (63), Dave Nestman low gross  (77) and Bob Mahar with second low net (63).  The third flight (handicaps 18  and up) low net went to Gary  Castle (63), low gross to Roger  Hocknell (82) and second low  net to Howard Webster (65).  Tic Tac Toe was the event for  the evening for the 41 players  who turned out for the Monday  evening Twilighters. Doreen  McGrath and Bernie Parker  took first place with 19 points  followed by Maureen Partridge  and Howard Boyer with 18.  The team of Marg Arbuckle  and George Bayford won the  low putt honours with 14 putts.  The 9-hole ladies held a hidden partner event on Tuesday.  For the low handicap flight, the  first prize went to Marg Bevan  and partner, second went to  Margo Hatthews and partner. It  is very frustrating not knowing  who that partner was, I am told.  The high handicap flight had  Edna Fisher and her partner on  top with second place going to  Mary Ewen plus partner.  Kay Budd was the winner of  the 18-hole ladies low net tournament with a 72, bb9. Second  flight winner was Mary McKin-  non with a 69 followed by  Audry McKenzie and Nan Nan-  son.  Third flight had Betty  Laidlaw first (68), Lynn Wilson  second and Louise Varco third.  The ladies had their first in-  terclub meet on Tuesday with  the University Golf Club as the  visiting team. Our ladies won  this match with 67 points vs 47 !  for the visitors.  The results of the senior  men's outing on Thursday were  as follows: Bill Sneddon and  team of Al Boyes, Bill McKin-  non, Bert Slade and George  Pare took first place with a low  net of 134>/2.  The tees were won by the  team of Lloyd Breeden, Bill  Sexton, Ted Henniker, Bill  Skelcher, and Bill Grant. Vic  Vaughan came through with the  closest to the hole and three golf  balls.  than just agood idea.

Chairman  B.C. Ferries Corporation  1112 Fort Street  Victoria  Dear Sir:    y  Re: B.C. Ferries - Passenger  Access by Boat, Langdale Terminal.  Recently a fence has been  erected to prevent passengers  from being dropped off by boat  at Langdale for access to the  ferry to Horseshoe Bay. This  act is depriving people from  Gambier and Keats Island the  right of access that they have  had since the ferry terminal was  moved by the Black Ball Line  from Gibsons to Langdale 25  ������years ago.  ������  At the time of the move, the  company met with Island  residents, and in the meeting  pedestrian access was assured  and the committment was made  for a passenger ferry, now the  Dogwood Princess.  With a public transport service and public facility, all  citizens have right of access. In  our view the statement of the  Terminal Agent that passengers  can now use the Hopkins Landing dock is absurd.  It is the equivalent of saying  that the automobile passenger  drop and pick up is moved to  Hopkins, a kilometre away  from the ferry slip, and that the  only access to the terminal for  foot passengers is by the Gibsons Bus. That prohibition  would be laughed at!  The issue of access developed  when the float was moved from  south of ihe ferry parking area  to the north. Then ferry personnel became concerned about the  force of the thrust from the  large ferry's propellers in a confined space during ferry docking. That event happens for  about three minutes every two  hours.  If there is concern for danger  at that time there are other solutions than permanently prohibiting access. Why not prohibit access for the period of  docking? The Dogwood Princess crew is on the float at that  time and could enforce the prohibition.  Warning lights could be installed, or, better still add  another float extending northward to extend small boat ac  cess to a point beyond the major  turbulence.  Or re-establish access to the  south. People will circumvent  your fence as they have done  before. They will not be denied  access arbitrarily. Makeshift  landings may cause even greater  danger and greater liability.  I have asked the Keats Island  residents to meet and launch a  formal protest so the situation  can be rectified before the summer traffic. That meeting will  take place on the long weekend.  Your officials might like to attend with a mind to exploring  means to open access. It is simply not right to treat one group of  residents, those who move  about on the water, differently  than those who move about by  automobile.  Walter G. Hardwick  Plan how to shut down military base  Editor:  A happy thought to think  while armed service bases are  being shut down in parts of  Canada: where a military base  closes, the local economy usually ends up better off!  Yes! The Pentagon studied  300 closures of US military  posts. Three years later, local  people held more jobs...three  jobs after to every two before,  on the average.  Some   shutdowns   were  disasters at first. What makes  the difference, then, between a  staggering blow and an  economic boost?  The Pentagon study found  the difference is in planning and  cooperation. Planning ahead by  the people who will be affected  and cooperation by the government.  What's this to us? Well, US  weapon test ranges lie 12 miles  off the Sunshine Coast; the  sound-testing part is in Jervis  j Inlet.  Some might hope the US  ! Navy stays here but Washington  could pull it out at any time.  | Others of us will be happier  when these Nanoose ranges do  close in favour of something  useful, that doesn't upset the  balance between superpowers.  Whichever way we want it,  the news of current closures is  sending us a message. We must  plan   to   surge   ahead   when  Nanoose and Jervis operations  shut down. Economic planners  around the Gulf of Georgia,  starting planning now.  Iris Griffith  Screened  Top i  Soil  Starbuck  Excavating  886-2430  Stop acid rain - recycle!

Lions.  This April the school students  and staff collected $1400 to  send four handicapped children  to the Lion's Crippled Children  Camp in Squamish.  Teacher Ian Jacob, who  organized the penny drive, said  enthusiastic support came from  the entire school and community.  "I had little old ladies coming  up to me on the street with pill  jars filled with pennies," he  said.  Jacob praised his homeroom  class for its energy and help on  the drive. "This is the best class  I've had in 19 years."  One of his Grade 5 students,  Leah Robinson, gave up every  lunch hour to roll coins. It took  six weeks to hand roll the entire  collection, Jacob said.  ��� MARINE SERVICES ���  TIDELINE MARINE ltd  MISC SERVICES  <��Gobnm KZ^r"-*?.

PLUMBING  SKEI'S PLUMBING & HEATING LTD,  Free Estimates  pusiness ph. Arnold skei  is Flowing! 885-1929  arney Bentall  by Ellen Fri!h  Barney Bentall and the  Legendary Hearts is a  somewhat incongruous name  for a rock and roll band but the  five-piece group behind it still  managed to pack Elphie's  Cabaret on Friday night and,  not long ago, won a Canadian  Juno award for most promising  group, so...what's in a name...  Bentall and his group arrived  last week on the Sunshine Coast  a few days early to spend some  time before Friday's show  rehearsing a new album.  Their last album, produced  by CBS records in Vancouver, is  on its way to platinum and has  just been released in the US,  Australia and Europe.  "As you can see," Bentall  said indicating the view from  Elphie's of Gibsons Harbour,  "the Sunshine Coast is a great  place to rehearse in."  Bentall was born in Toronto,  spent his teenager years in  Calgary and moved to Vancouver around 12 years ago. He  looks a lot younger than his 30  years even with the grey-  streaked stubble on his chin that  he had the day he talked to the  Coast News.  He said his group got to the  Juno awards doing just what  every other group does. "We  always just played and worked  away at our material," he said.  "You know if you hit your head  against the wall long enough,  sooner or later, it breaks  through, or at least it makes a  dent in the gyproc."  The group has been together  six years and Bentall says they  use no gimmicks to gain  popularity. "I think we've just  tried to get by on the quality of  the songs," he says, "and on  the energy level of the live performances."  Rock and roll music by its  very nature, Bentall says, is  learned by just playing it in bars  and basements. He admits to no  music training apart from the  usual child's foray into piano  and trumpet lessons. Music  doesn't even run in his family.  "My father wasaminister," he  sa^s, "so there was music  arau^^iitt if wasn't ?really a  musical family."  Y "He claims his love for music  is obyious. "I don't think you  could keep doing it unless you  loved it," he says. Being in the  business in the hopes of making  lots of money, for example, just  wouldn't sustain a musician for  the length of time it takes to  make it, he says.  Not only does Bentall look  young for his age, he also looks  remarkable, healthy for a man  whose work entails staying up  late a lot of nights in smokey  bars. But the life of a musician  isn't too hard, Bentall says, if  you can sleep the morning after  a late-night performance. While  on tour, he says, it gets a little  more difficult but "when I used  to work as a labourer digging  ditches that was a lot more tiring."  He also looks healthy because  he takes care of himself. "You  have to stay fairly healthy if you  want to keep doing it," he says.  His idols in life are not, as  would be imagined, musicians,  but rather bicycle racers,  Bentall lives in Vancouver  and intends on staying there  even if fortune tried to propel  the group south of the border to  the US. He likes it here.  "The years of working in  bar when people really di  care who you were were  frustrating, you know," Bentsifl  says, * 'but I think you get $��  because you're doing it to attain  some higher goal. It's been fun}  but it's been fun because we'ye��  loved music." i  Is Bentall married with!  children? "I don't talk about]  my personal life," he says.    'lJ  -TV  "���fi!

Gardening notes  by Marguerite  Welcome all newcomers to  the Sunshine Coast.  It can be a very busy time in  the garden and you can plant  just about anything now. May is  a better month for annuals and  tender vegetables. The nights  are cool and even though the  vegetables are hardened, they  need more warmth.  For big beautiful blooming  Rhodos, Azaleas'and Camelias,  a fertilizer "like Mira-Acid applied now also builds the buds  for next year's bloom which are  forming under the flower head.  Conditions are ideal for rearranging and correcting and  landscaping if you are a new  owner. Make a plan on paper,  study sun location and plant  needs and remember to consider  the final height of the various  shrubs, trees and flowers for  satisfying lasting results.  If new lawns are to be seeded,  do not delay much longer. It is  essential to have a fertile soil  and well prepared seedbed for  good results. \  If you do not have time to fix  the soil properly and yet want a  green lawn this summer,  especially if you have just moved in, sow a temporary lawn of  Italian Rye grass now. Turn it  under in early fall, prepare the  seedbed thoroughly and sow  your permanent lawn then.      >��  The rye grass- adds humus to|i  the soil,;for improvement. Keep ,  dandelions picked and do not  seed or remove with a tool  which removes the whole tap  root or try a tablespoon of;  Aliens Vinegar in a gallon of  water sprayed into the root.  Two useful telephone numbers to record and keep are.

Projects  most common in this category  are additions to existing  schools, facility improvements  related to health and safety,  equipment for special needs  students and replacement of  school buses.

An additional $143,039 has  been allocated to district 46's  shareable capital allowance for  projects designed to extend the  life of school facilities. Typically these areroof repair/replacements ancl upgrading of  mechanical and electrical  systems. This funding is  allocated to all districts based  on age, area, replacement costi  and expected life of buildings in  a school district.  Province-wide, the shareable  capital allowance amount is  $23.5 million. Total funding,in  the new series amounts to $73.5  million.

The Canadian Cancer Society's Camp Goodtimes, a fully-  subsidized summer camp for  children with a history of  cancer, will be held this year  from July 16 to 29 at Camp  Byng on the Sunshine Coast.  "The camp, going into its  fifth year, is designed to give  children with a history of cancer  a stimulating, happy camping  experience while tending to their  special medical needs," says  Camp Director Lois Youngson.  Camp Goodtimes features all  the summer camp traditions  -the tug-of-war games and the  songs around the campfire. But  one of its very special events is  the annual Mini Olympics.  To find out more about the  camp and how you can be a  part of the fun as a volunteer  counsellor or staff assistant, call  Patient Services at the Canadian  Cancer Society at 872-4400.  by Phillipa Beck  ������j*p   X-;"Hi, I'm Aaron. I'm a drug  rkddict," Aaron MacKenzie, 18,  I:skid, when he addressed a group  :df,30 Grade 7 and 8 students at  t<Tjiatelech  Secondary School's  ���Jjiird    Annual    Drug    and  ;Alcohol Awareness Forum.  ;:);Chatelech students attended a  <f_y-Iong series of workshops  ;^nd lectures called "It's Up To  ^bu" that focussed on drug and  alcohol abuse on May 3.  ; -In the workshop "It's Your  .Choice," MacKenzie explained  how  he had  been  a straight  "good boy" until he reached  high school and had to deal with  peer    pressure    and    with  loneliness.   He couldn't  cope.  He said he then tried to make  friends by getting high with the  older students and  ended up  spending $5000 one summer on  drugs.  ;��� "I can't lie to you, I had a lot  ef. fun," he said, but he wasn't  happy. "I was looking for some  high that would get me to happiness but the more I tried the  more it didn't work."  Many of the workshop topics  were chosen by students, forum  chairperson   Nancy   Denham  said. They asked to hear Rex  Gisler, a dynamic lecturer, who  told the packed gymnasium in  *~the opening session: "Each of  !you can do exactly what you  want to do if you make the decision and go for it. Success is a  state of mind."  ;!.;.-Peninsula   Association   for  :YJL;eisure    Services*   (PALS)  Take   Action"   was  popular request.

Y^'*'Denham said the Sechelt In-  ;' J dian Band played a large role in  ; y organizing the drug and alcohol  Y*Yforum, donating more money  *';**tb it than any other local group.  :;"-"We support an integrated ap-  J;.proach   to  drug  and  alcohol  Yawareness," said the National  '? Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse  *.Cb-ordinator Ben Pierre.  Chatelech used a five prong-  Yed approach to organize the  ; forum, Pierre said. This year  ' the high school involved com-  ; Jrviinity agencies, the medical  ' profession, educators, parents  ���, aihd most importantly, students.  '. Yin a surprise announcement  �� frc?m the provincial govern-  '��� merit's B.C.

I \ The forum consisted of three  ; workshop sessions, broken up  ; by a barbeque lunch, a play, an  * afternoon dance and then  'another play called "I am The  .Brother of Dragons" in the  j evening.  ��     Students could choose to at-  * tend three workshops out of 17.  ���'��� Spme of the other topics were:  t teen   parenting,   children   of  s-C^Youth  *;^u]bther  FOR PRACTICAL  REAL ESTATE  Celling ��� buying ��� residential  "' recreational ��� investment  DONALD  SUTHERLAND  ^Backed by 15 years of local experience  TTi fff      Toll Free ��81-3044  dCbblCS   Bus.       880-8107  IIEALT-LTD.
