Array ^r*,?c-"*  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  90_8  by Ellen Frith  * A fairly comprehensive mon-  toring report for the month of  October which provides information onjactivities undertaken  for the expansion project at the  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  (HSPP) mill in Port Mellon has  just recently been released.  ���The report, compiled by  Connor Development Services  Limited  (CDSL)  of  Victoria  who are consulting sociologists,  highlights, among other things,  events and activities currently  underway, community observations on different concerns  associated with the expansion  project and proposed activities.  It is part of an ongoing program  which includes meetings between Gibsons Council and  HSPP representative Harry  Cargo and which will continue  through the construction phase  of the HSPP project.  It follows, to quote the introduction to the report, "a  series of community activities  from August 1988 to May 1989  which identified key features of  the community, projected likely  positive and negative effects of  the expansion project on the  ""residents and noted ways in  which these effects could be  managed for the benefit of the  community."  More specifically, the October report deals with issues  raised by Gibsons Council in its  October 10 meeting with Cargo.  According to the report, that  meeting was to discuss past and  current effects of the expansion  project and council considered  the project to have had significant impact on the following:  "the post office, ie. increased  mail requires more staff;  "increased number of stu  dents in schools;  "more traffic on the roads  (many of the trailer loads come  into Gibsons before going to the  mill the next day);  "reduction to the number of  tourists able to find accommodation in Gibsons."  According to the CDSL  report, with regard to the first  items, Cargo promised to write  Canada Post to see whether it  could have some influence in in  creasing the staff level in town.  Regarding the situation in the  Coast schools, it was agreed  there were more students than  two years ago but HSPP said t%t  the October 10 meeting, it needed more information on the  number of new students which  are due to the project in order tb  respond effectively.

A  motion in support of the project  sjibject to a number of stipula^  tions is presently on the table  and Gibsons Council will be  ; voting on it at its December 5  council meeting.  I Mayor. Diane   Strom   had  pressed,   at   the   council's  November 21 meeting, the importance of input from the taxpayers before a council decision  was made because, she said,  ?It's   tfyeir   (the   taxpayers)  Approximately 60 people  crowded into the council  chambers for the meeting and at  least 20 people took the opportunity of speaking out either for  Or against the project. Joe  Belanger, SCMHS Projects Coordinator, was present to  answer any specific questions  addressed to the society.  The SCMHS is asking the  town permission for the exclusive use of its new waterfront  park property for two years in  order to build a full scale, working replica of Captain Vancouver's ship The Discovery.  After the project is completed,  two thirds of the land will be  returned as developed park and  the remaining one third would  continue being used for  museum/attraction purposes.  The ship would be built on a  floating dock which would later  be moved to the Hillside Industrial Park, and the museum  will be housed in the old firehall  which the SCMHS proposes to  relocate from its present site on  Gower Point Road to the waterfront park where it will be  renovated.  To date, Gibsons does not  have any specific plans for the  park although Town Planner  Rob Buchan has begun inY  vestigating the various  possibilities open to the town in  regards to acquiring grant funding for developing the land.  Strom said, at the meeting, she  is in favour of a "people park".  One of the grayest concerns  stated by former Gibsons mayor  Lome Blain and Shared by a  number of others at the meeting  is the possible damage any of  the society's proposed dredging  in the harbour might cause to  the town's artesian well water  supply which extends out under  the sea in that area.  If the proposed dredging  would endanger the water supply, Belanger said, "of course, it  wouldn't be done." Strom added that any engineering sounding studies proposed and paid  for by the SCMHS to verify the  thickness of the crust separating  the artesian water from the sea  water would be done by town-  approved engineers.  Other concerns included the  proposition of a commercial  venture going into a public park  and of it being utilized by one  special interest group; the financial viability of the project; and  the damage in the area to the  ducks and other birds who now  live in the park.  Those in favour of the project stressed the probable  tourism draw of the project; the  advantages which could be afforded the lower town through  having an 18th-century marine  theme; and the jobs created for  local craftsmen and others in  the building of the ship.  Over 50 recommendations  Sechelt discusses  Cuff Report  by Caryl Worden  Sechelt District Council  dealt with more than 50 issues  ranging from pay packages to  reporting procedures in a special  meeting held November 30. The  five-hour session dealt with  recommendations made by  George Cuff and Associates in a  corporate review commissioned  .   by council last spring.  The report, received by council six weeks ago, is as thick as  the Vancouver Yellow Pages  and contains nearly as many  reference functions. It covers  such 'motherhood' issues as an  overall corporate plan, a three  to five year capital budget, and  policy procedures as well as  specifics such as frequency of  meetings, agenda format and  :to the exact roles of aldermen,  Hma^<Vhand administrator.  ,^jMith Alderman Graham acting as deputy mayor in Tom  Meredith's absence, council endorsed in principal the majority  of the 'Cuff Report', much of  which dealt with general  management topics. Staffing  issues such as management skill  training sessions, performance  appraisals and a staff development training plan were  unanimously adopted.  The recommendation to build  a new municipal hall large  enough to accommodate the  staff needed to properly "serve  a population of 10,000 to  15,000" was also solidly endorsed. Sechelt Administrator  Malcolm Shanks commented  that the proposed complex for  Block 7 had been designed with  such a population growth in  mind, and should be sufficient  for 10 years.  The one recommendation  that was rejected by council  dealt with 'in camera' or closed  sessions. Cuff advised that  "were disagreement to rise,  that council convene an in  camera session to discuss the  matter and seek resolution...".  This would exclude the media,  general public and sometimes  staff from such sessions.  Alderman Bob Wilson, in  voting against the motion said:  "The purpose of having private  meetings at our level government is so that we can discuss  the purchase or selling of real  estate and issues dealing with  personnel. We don't go into a  closed session so we can have a  private fight."  Agreeing, Alderman Joyce  Kolibas stated: "If we can't  discuss openly, have a disagreement, what's wrong with us?"  In a related section of the  report, the aldermen voted in  favour of the recommendation  that rules of confidentiality be  enforced during any session  which is in camera. "If council  votes five to one in favour of a  matter (in camera), that sixth  person doesn't go to the press  (with the details)," Alderman  Bob Wells stressed. "If you go  into a confidential meeting,  nothing is to come out of that  meeting."  "And we have experienced  this very recently," added  Wilson."It was the mayor who  was the offender, because he  determined what was and  wasn't confidential. This was  '���Byvsp-.  Jiliiii^iiiili^i^^^Hw  not his decision to make."  Several of the recommendations were tabled. Section 18 of  the report deals with the  organizational structure, including the possible addition of  administrative positions such as  a director of engineering and  director of corporate services or  a treasurer. Such a move would  cost "a minimum of $100,000  without putting pen to paper,"  Wilson commented.  The compensation (salary)  system that is to be developed  was also tabled and will be  discussed at the next special  council session, scheduled for  December 11.

Coast News, December 4,1989  I am not going to waste much time on the pit bull journalism that you as editor allowed to appear last week in the  pages of the journal for which you are responsible. Surely  in the history of journalism there can have been few more  savage attacks on the recently dead than appeared in the,  guise of a news story in The Press of November 28, 1989.  Rather, my choice is to focus on the role played by  yourself during the aftermath of the death of Vern Elliott.  You would have us see you as the Manly and Decent  Canadian speaking a few kind words over a Fallen Foe. I  don't buy it Mr. Price.  In every by-line in your paper you proclaim yourself Al  Price, The Press Editor. As editor you have a responsibility for what appears in your pages. A friend of Vern Elliott  phoned you immediately after his death and expressed  misgivings about what would happen if your main contributor wrote the story. You assured that all would be in  good taste. How do you look in the mirror these days, Al?  Then there is your editoral: no mention of the fact that  Vern was the victim of a criminal hit and run killing? Why  not? Why is the victim blamed?  You assert that Vern was intoxicated at the time of his  death. The police cannot say that; the coroner does not  say that; the only person who says that Vern Elliott was  intoxicated is an alleged and unnamed 'observer' in the  Peninsula Motor Hotel that apparently only your  reporter spoke to.  The management and staff of the hotel, who know Vern  well ���- he dropped off papers for patrons and staff in the  late afternoon, early evenings of his day off for many  months - say that he was his usual quiet and inoffensive  self on the evening of his death, sipped two half-pint  glasses of beer and left, as was his custom.  How dare you assert under the guise of a tribute that  Vern Elliott was intoxicated?  And then there are the juicy and entirely unsubstantiated speculations about a dead man's past and private  pain. Tawdry stuff, Mr. Price, tawdry stuff.  When Vern came to the rescue of your staff he always  did so with my full knowledge and consent. I didn't think  it would be appreciated - and can you now say that I was  wrong - but I had enough sense to not stand between Vern  and his generous and kindly instincts. He was a man of integrity, you see, and while integrity to those who don't  have it is a sham or a myth, for Vern Elliott it was a  lifestyle.  Let it be recorded, Jim McDowell was no stranger to  the kindly generosity of Vern Elliott. Not too long ago  McDowell was handsomely paid by the Town of Gibsons for the production of a brochure. That production  could not have been possible without the pictures of  Vern Elliott, freely given.  Mr. Price, it is my clear opinion that if there is  anything more despicable that the twisted vindictiveness  of your lead story of November 28, it is the banal-  hypocrisy of yourself in this matter, for it is you that has  the responsibility of deciding what shall see print and  what shall not.  It is, further, my clear opinion that in allowing the printing of this savage character assassination of the tragically  dead you have indicated your unfitness to occupy an  editorial chair. It is an opinion that I will not hesitate to  voice whenever I am asked wherever newspapermen  gather.  Permit me, Mr. Price, a last aside to your publisher:  Mr. Proctor, in my time as newspaperman on this Coast  your family has known the pain and anguish of a terrible  highway accident. That pain and anguish was not compounded by sensational and distorted reporting of the  event. Are you capable of understanding that?

Therefore it is to give The  Press some credit that with its  front page news story on Vern  Elliott's death, which was both  inaccurate and mean-spirited, it  managed to transcend all the  many differences of personal  taste and standards of behaviour on the Sunshine Coast and  in doing so outraged just about  everybody. Y .  I  joined  the  many,  many  others who wrote to The^fjress /  -last week to protest that ;n$ws  story with the following: '$���)���  Dear Mr. Price:  Perhaps it is unusual for the  editor of one newspaper to write  a letter to the editor of another,  allegedly rival publication but,  in this case, the blatant  disregard for the sensibilities of  this community along with the  nonobservance of the guidelines  of good journalism demand a  response. I am speaking, of  course, in regards to your  November 28, 1989, front page  news story on the hit and run  death of Vern Elliott.  It is true that as a friend and  co-worker of Mr. Elliott's, I am  appalled at the insensitivity of  Jim McDowell's report on what  was the tragic and criminal  death of a good man. But I suppose that it is your privilege as  editor of The Press and that of  Richard Proctor as its publisher, to encourage any particular angle to a news story you  prefer. My objection is to the  extremely poor quality of the  actual reporting that took place.  Any one of us could fall victim  to a crime and, if that should  ever happen, I feel that, at the  very least, the elementary and  basic guidelines of responsible  journalism should be followed  in reporting the incident.  To keep this letter short, I  will not go through Mr.  McDowell's story paragraph by  paragraph, suffice it to say here  that allegations, innuendos, unsubstantiated facts and unat-  tributed statements in regard to  Mr. Elliott's character and the  events of his accident do not  constitute a news story. And,  obviously, neither does the printing of hearsay and gossip.  Mr. Elliott is dead and unable  to defend himself and he has no  family in this country so if, for  whatever reason, your newspaper wishes to cast disparagement on his character, you  are free to do so. As you no  doubt already know, there is no  legal recourse for the slandering  of the dead. Still, it is a sad day  for the people of this Coast,  when, to use your own words  Mr. Price, "a decent man",  falls victim first to a violent  death and then to an irresponsible bit of shoddy journalism.  Thank you for your attention.  Yours truly  Ellen Fiith  Eight O'Clock  He stood, and heard the steeple  Sprinkle the quarters on the morning town.

Housman  Slings and arrows  Life imitates art, imitates.  by George Matthews  Washington, DC enjoys what  may be the world's best subway  system. It is clean, efficient,  easy to use and safe, which is in  itself a rare commodity in this  city.  On my visit to General  Sickles' leg bone, as described in  an earlier piece, I was able to  take the Metro (subway) from  Rockville, and be delivered safe  and sound into the centre of  Takoma Park, near the Walter  Reed Army Pathology Museum  and the General's limb.  I mention the subway because  it was at the Rockville Metro  station that I stumbled across a  curious connection between  Civil War General Daniel  Sickles and F. Scott Figzgerald,  the American novelist. Returning from viewing the General's  leg, I stopped at the Rockville  Metro sation and went to look  at the small graveyard at the  church near the station. Fitzgerald and his tragic wife,  Zelda, are buried in a common  plot in this cemetery and I  wanted to visit the great writer's  burial place.  Within a few minutes I had  found the grave of Zelda and  Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald,  who, it seems, carried the same  name as the famous Washington, Francis Scott Key, the man  who wrote the Star Spangled  Banner. Key was also brother to  an early Justice of the US  Supreme Court, Philip Barton  Key. Strangely enough, Philip  Barton Key is the name of the  man killed by Dan Sickles in a  jealous rage over his wife's infidelity.  A little research soon showed  that it was not the Supreme  Court Justice who was killed by  Sickles; it was Philip Barton  Key, the son of Francis Scott  Key, whom the General had  shot.  The murder, and especially  the ensuing trial, caused a sensation in Washington in 1858.  Sickles, a newly elected member  of the House of Representatives  from New York, had found out  what everyone else in  Washington had known for  months - that Key, and Sickles  young wife, Teresa, had been  having a very hot, and very  public, affair.  We already know that Sickles  was impetuous. Anyone who  could almost lose the Civil War  in one afternoon and donate his  blown-off leg to the Smithsonian Institution, all in a day's  work, is not going to be one of  the cool and thoughtful types.  One of his earlier impetuous  acts was to marry the Italian  beauty, Teresa, in 1853, when  she was only 16 years old. In  order to make this child odalisque into as much of a woman as  is possible with one so young,  Sickles took Teresa to Europe,  where he hoped she might learn  the ways of the world. It seems  she was a quick study.  Upon returning to the US,  Sickles went into politics and  was soon elected to Congress.  Sickles and Teresa took up  residence in a house located in  Jackson Place, a street adjacent  to Lafayette Park which is right  across the street from the White  House in downtown Washington. By this time, Teresa had a  baby daughter, and mother and  child naturally took their exercise in Lafayette Park.  (As a small footnote, this is  the park where President Bush's  aides were able to purchase  crack cocaine for the presidential show and tell on drugs  televised a few months back.)  In those days, the park was a  wholesome place for mothers  and their children; at least it was  a wholesome place for the  children. The mothers, it seems,  were subject to a different kind  of temptation, and it wasn't  very long before Teresa had met  and fallen in love with another  park dweller, our man Philip  Barton Key.  Trial records tell us that the  affair was steamy in the extreme; the court transcripts  themselves, containing the  frank, ingenuous, and very  detailed testimony of Teresa  Sickles, were favourite reading  among young lawyers for years.  The lovers were not very circumspect about their relationship either. Key rented a small  love nest in a street just east of  the park in what was then a  predominantly African/-  American district. Soon, every  cab driver, cook and  housekeeper in Washington  knew the couple by sight, name  and deed. After several months,  Congressman Sickles began to  suspect that something was going on. He challenged his wife  on the matter. She denied it.  Key was even an occasional dinner guest, and the gullible husband believed his wife's denials.  Eventually and inevitably,  however, the affair collapsed.  One day, Key, who would  routinely signal his young  paramour by waving a handkerchief from the street below her  window, was seen by the husband who had hidden from  view. Apparently, young Teresa  had told all some time during  the previous evening and  Sickles, furious with jealousy,  had stayed up all night waiting  for Key to appear.  In a fit of rage, Sickles grabbed his pistol and rushed outside  to confront his wife's lover. Key  tried to escape by rushing across  the park, but the husband  followed, caught up with him,  and shot him enough times that  no one could claim it was an accident. Before the last and fatal  shot was fired, witnesses heard  Key cry out, "Don't kill me."  But the Congressman showed  no mercy.  During the trial, Sickles was  able, successfully, to plead temporary insanity with the help of  several witnesses to his jealous  rage. After his acquittal, Sickle-  sent his wife and child back to  her parents, but only after he  had her wedding band broken.  Months later, Teresa was finally  able to convice her husband to  take her back, but the loss of  her lover and the scandal of the  trial proved too much and she  soon withered and died.  F. Scott Fitzgerald is now  buried not 20 miles from where  his distant relative was shot by  Dan Sickles. Fitzgerald's father,  apparently aware of the extremely remote family connection with Francis Scott Key,  named his son after that famous  patriot, in much the same way, I  suppose, that F. Scott named  his and Zelda's daughter,  Frances Scott Fitzgerald.  That this strange and quite  trivial coincidence exists was  probably not even known to  Fitzgerald himself, but that the  connection should encompass  so much tragedy for all concerned makes for a story that, one  suspects, the author of TTie  Great Gatsby might have wished he had written himself.  i__2___  ���BlUt .  RlfiBON  AWARD  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  '.  I rf���^r -ir^'*  T^ZM&^ztKzrvmn^'T-u w*-Hf**-** w  Coast News, December^ 1989  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Mr. McDowell, in regard to  your article concerning the  demise of "our friend" Mr.  Vern -Elliott (Tuesday,  November 28, 1989).  -I, arid many others feel that  you would need a fair-sized  backhoe capable of scooping  but ah extremely large cavity in  :the.surface of the earth to be  able;to reach the depth to which  yoii had to sink when you took  the.time to "scribble" out the  article concerning the demise of  our friend and loved one Vern  Elliott. Gee, it must be a thrill to  drag the laundry of a dead man  through the pages of the press.  I wrongly assumed that one  in a position such as yours  would act with a certain amount  of discretion rather than  desecrate the memory of one so  well loved by those who knew  him, and tarnishing his name  forever to those who were unfortunate enough not to know  him. You claim in your article,  that Vern was known as an  alcoholic and a loner. I wonder,  Mr. McDowell, what qualifies  you to determine whether or not  Mr. Elliott was or was not an  alcoholic? And about being a  loner? I will have you know that  Vern Elliott's wealth was in his  friends who are many in  number. Vern didn't have much  in material gains but what he  lacked there, he gained back  with his warmth and richness of  character.  So you see Mr. McDowell,  we, the loving friends of Vern  Elliott are, in fact, outraged  that you would try and slur the  name   and   memory   of   our  beloved   friend   who   helped  many and hurt none.  In conclusion, Mr. McDowell, it may pay you well to sit  just a little closer to your stove  this Christmas; maybe the  reflecting heat will warm your  heart.  Mr. J.R. Sullivan  Editor:  My husband and I were appalled and disgusted that Jim  McDowell of The Press found it  necessary to fill us in on certain  details of Mr. Vern Elliott's life.  (The Press, November 28,  1989).  Did Jim McDowell not stop  for a moment to imagine how  much his insensitive revelations  would hurt those who were left  to mourn Mr. Elliott's tragic  passing? ;"  Jim McDowell obviously has  never heard of the old saying: If  you can't say anything good  about someone, don't say  anything at all. *  George & Margaret Watt  Teacher remembers  With disbelief  Editor:  It was the disbelief at what I  was seeing in print that compelled me to painfully continue  reading it - that piece of  slanderous reporting on the  tragic hit and run accident last  week.  What The Press reporter expected to gain by viciously  repeating the past mishaps of a  person no longer here to  retaliate, is beyond all ken.  But were he here, Vern Elliott  would pass it off with a shrug of  his weary shoulders. Weary  from the constant presence of  complete camera gear, and  presence it was - not a burden as  it so often appeared to those  who did not have the good fortune of knowing the man.  Loner?? Never!! The crowded to capacity memorial service  for Vern was testimony to the  contrary.  We did not speak with Vern  every day, but one almost  always caught a glimpse of him  "about town". He will be sadly  missed by us and his many  friends.  Rest in Peace, Vern.  Leo and June Imanse  Good, gentle man  Editor:  My dear friend and coworker Vern Elliott has gone.  We who worked with and knew  this good, gentle man are grieving at the cruel way that Vern  was left in a gutter to die.  Grief became outrage at the  reporting of the event in The  * Press. Nothing derogatory was  ���:'. said about the criminal responsible for the hit and run but  ���; many negative and untrue  Z-- remarks about the yictim of this,.  & crime.  An example of the outcome  of this type of reporting was,  while talking to someone who  had not known Vern, hearing  the remark, 'Well, he was a  drunk - I read that in The  Press.'  It is a sad day for our lovely  Sunshine Coast if a newspaper  correspondent can smear the  name of a dead man and have  such unethical conduct ignored.  Ruth Forrester  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  Poster offends  ^Editor:  *.; When I looked in our  '.newspapers at the newly made  poster for 'Mayor's Task Force  on Drugs', I couldn't believe  what I saw. To me it was depicting a youth with long hair as  the face under "crime  stoppers".  For^ "Drug Awareness  Week", my first question was  why this picture? Why not a  picture of any other type Of person, a short haired person, a  nerdy person, a tough person, a  down and put person, a professional person? Why use a picture of a long haired youth; or  youth at all for that matter; or  any other specific type of person? A stick person would have  been much less libelous.  Certainly there are youth  around who need to be told not  tb use drugs. But there are also  many, other types of people in  this category.  To me, the poster's message,  to   be   "plain   and   simple"  against all mood-altering  substances, should have the  word 'Drugs' behind the red  'no' circle. Or pictures of all the  drugs from alcohol to heroin,  uppers to downers, legal to illegal. The message should go to  all people.  And wouldn't it be ironic to  put it on a cabaret's door? I  think the red 'no' circle would  have to be omitted.  Nanci Gaudry  Editor:  I met Vern Elliott through his  numerous visits to Roberts  Creek Elementary. I watched  him line up kids, roam amongst  dogs, chase turkeys, capture  photo finishes and brighten up  the face of many a youngster.  Here was a man remembered  at my place of work as a kind  and gentle soul, whose humble  nature deserves far more than  the lack of reverence portrayed  by Jim McDowell in last week's  Press.  I resent McDowell's statements, "known as a loner and  Anger  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Al Price, Editor  The Press  When a man or a woman dies  it is always sad. When a  person's life is prematurely cut  off by a terrible criminal act, it  is devastating. I did not know  Vern Elliott except by his fine  photographs, but his death and  its cause was deeply painful to  me. All life is precious.  But my feelings turned to bitter anger at the vicious and  mean account in your  newspaper of this hit and run  crime in which the victim rather  than the criminal became the  brunt of Jim McDowell's  perpetually poisonous pen. He  twisted a sad and shocking moment into a vindictive portrayal  of Vern Elliott, ayrie,ws  photographer for your rival [  jpjwspaper, the Coast News. He "^  attacked the character of a dead  man, unable to respond.  In my opinion, you, as  editor, and Dick Proctor, as  publisher, gave aid and comfort  to the unknown criminal by  allowing McDowell's story in  print.  Shame!  Frank L. Fuller  Gibsons.  More letters  pages 19 & 23  alcoholic..." because such  statements fit into the realm of  gossip and only someone without scruples or ethics would not  only spread gossip about a dead  person but print it in a front  page story of a newspaper.

However, pertussis  can occur in any age group,  though the occurrence decreases  with increasing age.  Persons with severe whooping cough are usually admitted  to hospital. The drug of choice  is Erythromycin given for at  least.'14 days. Cases should be  excluded from day care, school  or other situations with susceptible individuals for three weeks  or until they have stopped  coughing, or until they have  received five days of treatment  (whichever occurs first). All  contacts of cases should be kept  under observation for 14 days  from the last contact with a  case.

Pinniger told the board that  in addition to the regular night  school classes held in the district  schools, her department has  been responsible for the implementation of several federally funded programs whose  monetary value far exceeds the  approximately $4000 'seed  money' provided in the district  budget.  The current project being  undertaken by Continuing  Education is a needs survey to  evaluate the changing character  of the population of this area  and assess the kinds of programs that Sunshine Coast  businesses and residents would  like to have in the next five  years.  Assessment team members  Sandy McBride, Gail Hickey  and Marilyn Jares will also be  attempting to establish a 'bank'  of resource people who would  be available as instructors in an  expanded Continuing Education program.  District Superintendent Clifford Smith, commenting on the  report, praised the ambitious  Continuing Education program  and described Pinneger as "a  very enthusiastic and dedicated  person, and a tremendous asset  to the community."  ^1 ^"  At The Roberts Creek Hall  Dec. 10, 1989 from 10 am - 4 pm  Admission 75* Children- Free  Live Music  Weaving, Ceramics, Books, Toys,  Hand-Made Clothing  ft  '4.  ���*'  Seniors  10% discount  when you  Order your Christmas..

A great  storyteller, George.  "When I brought the lambs  over, there were one or two problems," said George, "with the  ferry people."  Now when a good story is  about to be told, sit still, keep  quiet, and listen is my motto.  This one had first come up in  Gerry's barber shop, and now  was the time to get the details  written down at this second telling.  "Well I heard about two  lambs for sale on a farm near  Victoria and I figured to bring  them back on foot from Nanai  mo. Got it okayed by telephone -  from someone in the highup office in the ferry system.  "As long as they are controlled, the fellow said. Well, no  problem there. Those lambs  came right along on their  leashes, their noses nudging my  bag where their bottles of milk  were.  "Got to Nanaimo in a station  wagon with no problem, but at  the ferry an indignant dockhand  stopped me.  "You can't go aboard unless  those sheep are in. crates."  "Yes,    I    can,    I    have  ing had never given me sight of  sheep shoes. Wooden shoes on  people, yes, but nothing for  sheep. Besides, I told him,  sheep skip about on slippery  slopes in rocky places without  accident."  George had no problems at  Horseshoe Bay - word had  come from Nanaimo to clear  them. But at Langdale...  "Only domestic animals on  the Dogwood Princess," said an  official.  "What do you call sheep  then?"  "Well, only cats and dogs, I  permission." And after a flurry       mean.  of phone calls, I did. But not  before one more attempt to stop  me."  "Are they shod?" said the  dockhand. "If they slip on the  steel deck, you could sue."

George assured him the deep  freeze was the next stop for the  lambs, "but I expect to take a  1900 pound workhorse over  soon." (But the horse story is  for another week).  "Vem Elliott got a picture of  us at Langdale terminal and  gave me copies. By the way, did  I tell you the names I had for  the lambs?  "They were a black and a tan  and I called them Aunt Jemima  and Pancake. You'll have lamb  chops for lunch, but I don't  know if they're Aunt Jemima's  or Pancake's."  "By the way," said George,  "while waiting at Horseshoe  Bay a lady looked at the lambs  with their undocked tails, and  asked what breed of dog they  were."

Someone said, "Everyone  here has a recollection of some  incident that leaves a happy  memory."  Many of us imagined Vern  Elliott somewhere nearby looking on in astonishment, "So  many friends I have?" and  fumbling to get his smashed  camera in focus for a shot of the  assembled crowd. And a waiflike smile flickering across his  face.  So many 'shoulds' and  'shouldn'ts' arise in thoughts at  this occasion.  Shouldn't walk at night in  dark clothing on that killer strip  of highway that has witnessed  other mangled bodies.  Shouldn't relate in print  grubby details of the deceased.

So move to the Creek, I said.  I've told the same thing to  friends   in   Selma   Park   but  they're waiting for the mortgage  to be paid, then Roberts Creek  they'll be bound.  Meanwhile my friends in  Gibsons decided to take advantage of the high prices in the real  estate market this past year.  Sell, sell, sell! It didn't even take  one month to get more than  they expected. And all for a  house and acreage at the top of  Lockyer Road in Roberts  Creek. Two miles up a back  road where no hydro, water  lines or telephone or cable lines  run is what I call being in the  bush.  Alternative methods of lighting, heating and generally running your home are definitely  needed now. But what a thrill.  Chickens, ducks, pigs and even  a rooster, who somehow makes  those little hens lay eggs almost  the size of Nerf footballs, every  day. What a feat!  Lots of bush, trees you can  fall, fresh, clear and clean  creeks,  but  best  of all,  low  -With much good cheer, members of the Soundwaves Choir (left to right) Margaret Jones, Pat Hogg,  Nora Ward, Gloria Fyles and Marilyn Rannigcr attend to a baking goods stall at Sunnycrest Mall on  Saturday. ���Ellen Frith photo  Helene Guenette  Registered Massage Therapist  Available to give Massage Treatments  in the heart of Roberts Creek  FOR APPOINTMENTS PLEASE CALL  886-7S77  m POPULAR DEMAND at  Grammas  Fri. & Sat., Dec. 8 & 9,  8:30 'til 1:00  Laser Karaoke  and be a  "Legend in your own Mind1  (better than a shower stall)  Your voice, acoustically improved, dubbed over your  favourite songs.

Building Sciences, a  firm of consulting engineers,  has made a preliminary study of  local school buildings to determine their ability to withstand  earthquakes.  The firm is proposing that  any high risk buildings be subjected to in-depth surveys at the  cost of about $8000 each.  School   trustees,   discussing  the issue at the November 28  board meeting, expressed concern at the ability of the district   ,,  ita pay for the additional surveys^;;  and, subsequently, the cost of .K  upgrading the buildings. ..������.  But Secretary-Treasurer Tim  Anderson reassured them the  costs would probably be  covered by the Ministry of  Education.

There is endless downfall for  firewood for the next few years,  so heat is no problem. Just keep  the chimney clean.  Your friends who don't have  a 4X4 or even a junker pickup  truck, which is by-the-way a  symbol of Roberts Creek  wealth, can't visit you in their  nice cars with six inches  clearance underneath. You will  have to pick them up at the top  of the paved road section or you  will have to visit them at their  house. After all, oil pans, muffler systems, pipe and fuel lines  are pretty susceptible when you  try to dodge through mega-sized  ruts every foot or so on this  road.

LEGION DONATES  I would personally like to  thank the Zantolases, Annie  Dempster, et al, for so generously coming forward to offer  their services and the use of the  Legion Hall for the wake for  my friend and co-worker, Vern  Elliott.  Vern is greatly missed by  everyone he touched. He had a  special feeling for the Creek.  Every Monday morning he used  to ask me how things were in  the Creek this week. We used to  laugh a lot. Vern was a great  person to work with and just to  be with. I'm very sad that I will  never again see his weathered  face with the soft brown eyes,  come through the front door of  the Coast News.

Sechelt Chamber  At its general meeting on  Monday, November 27 the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  identified some priorities, or  themes for 1990: 'Working  together' tourism and promoting support for local  businesses and merchants.  With the Christmas season  upon us it's important for the  public to realize how much our  local economy depends on our  dollars being spent on the Sunshine Coast.  So, support your local merchants and 'buy Sunshine  Coast'.  The chamber also ratified its  new membership fee schedule  for 1990. Membership applications and information are  available at the chamber office,  as are nomination slips for theW  executive and board of directors-'  for 1990.  Winner of the goat raffle was  Harold Pearson of Pearson  Land Clearing in Sechelt. Both  the silent auction and the good  citizen of the year banquet were  successful, raising over $3000  between them, thanks to the  support of local businesses and  merchants, and the hard work  of organizers Lauralee Solli and  Bonnie Paetkau respectively.  During December, hours of  operation for the Sechelt Travel  InfoCentre will be 10 to 2:30  pm, Monday through Friday,  the same as for the chamber office and Business Information  Centre.  The chamber would like to  take this opportunity to thank  its volunteers for their valuable  contributions   during    1989.

Edith  was one of the first residents to  move into the care home in  November 1980.  She will be greatly missed by  all. There was no event that she  did not join in enthusiastically.

This past spring, Edith was  responsible for a table at  Kiwanis selling daffodils to raise  money for the Canadian Cancer  Society. She always helped the  auxiliary at their berry tea and  sale.

Sechelt Seniors  Patients' affordable lodging  by Larry Grafton  More and more these days it  seems a number of our members as well as members of the  community generally, are faced  with the reality of treatment or  surgery at a city hospital and in  most of these cases it is  necessary for the patient and/or  a relative or companion to find  lodging at an affordable rate  and a decent place to stay.  The following Patient Hostel  Units are located in Vancouver:  Cancer Lodge, 575 West 10th  Avenue where admission is  restricted to patients/outpatients and escorts from outside  the Vancouver area.

SPCA Treasurer Barbara  Relton reported Friday that all  nine puppies found homes by  mid-week. But now their Mom  and older sister are up for adoption. Relton said that concerned  citizens managed to catch the  skittish pair who were roaming  wild and hungry.  "They're a bit timid but very  friendly and loving," Relton  said. They can be seen at the  Gibsons Animal Hospital and a  'generous donor' has offered to  pay for spaying costs according  to Relton.  There is no charge to adopt  an SPCA animal, but owners  must pay for any shots, unlike  Vancouver where a $20 to $50  adoption fee covers initial inoculations.

There were no additional  students, the report states, in  Pender Harbour or Madeira  Park.  With regard to road traffic,  the report says Cargo indicated  at the meeting that most of the  traffic travelling to and from  the ferries from the mill do not  travel through Gibsons but it  was also recognized that local  traffic to and from the mill on a  daily basis was greatly increased.  Apparently HSPP is currently considering having project  staff commute to the mill by  bus. "Such an option would  reduce the, number of local  vehicles on the road and assist  with difficulties construction  workers are currently encountering with parking at the mill,'*'  the report states, 70i  Furthermore, "at therendJ8f  November, statistics from  HSPP indicate that the number  of . trailers should /start to  decrease:" ���  As to the shortage of rental  accommodations, Cargo stated  at the meeting that the project  currently had a guest house in  use and they were involved with  discussions with a Vancouver-  based consulting firm, Cornerstone Consultants, on how it  could assist with further accommodation needs.  Apparently this firm has been  undertaking a study on accommodation needs on the Coast  and the results of the study are  pending.  The biggest concern expressed by council during the  meeting, according to the  report, was the heavy demand  for rental accommodation and  motel room this past summer.  "As a result, tourists had difficulty finding accommodation  in the town. There was concern  that this would discourage  tourists from returning in  following years," the report  states.  The issue of additional  recreational facilities was also  raised at the meeting and Cargo  said he would like the town to  indicate specifically what it  would like assistance with.  Council has apparently agreed  to consider this idea and discuss  the options at further meetings.  The report concludes its summation of the October 10  meeting by stating, "One final  request from council concerned  reducing the number of cars  coming into town by providing  a bus service during evenings to  transport workers to and from  town."  To that end, HSPP is apparently currently obtaining  local quotes for such a service.  This idea has been raised  numerous times and interest has  either been low from project  employees or there has been  some uncertainty from local  residents about whether this  would help alleviate anticipated  difficulties."  The report also indicated that  another area of concern to  HSPP is in regard to the  transportation of school *  children which conflicts with  mill workers "rushing to reach  the 4:30 ferry on Friday afternoons and school buses picking  up and dropping off children at  this time."  To alleviate these problems,  two   suggestions   were  made:  another poster campaign with  1 ���  children in the affected schools  drawing safety posters to  distribute around the area of  concern, and a second notice  circulated to mill employees requesting them to slow down in  these areas.  "Such measures were undertaken last year," the report  states, "and appeared to be effective in the short term."  The report also says HSPP is  "currently co-ordinating environmental studies on effluent  and emissions being discharged  from the mill. This is under the  direction of the Ministry of Environment who issued the same  request to all pulp and paper  mills in the province."  Mill representatives were  slated to meet and discuss the  format and resources necessary  for these studies during the  week of November 13 and the  studies are scheduled to begin  now. "Preliminary results may  be expected near February or  March, 1990," the report says.  The report also addressed the  impact of the mill expansion on  the health units in the area.  CDSL found that there is a  noticeable increase "in the  number of requests for assistance", especially at the health  unit in Gibsons.

According to Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  Chairman Peggy Connor, the  reason for this, presently under  discussion, is that there are certain ferries which are serviced  by both Maverick and by the  local BC Transit, thus taking  away some of Maverick's  former passengers.  Maverick is a private enterprise while BC Transit is  government subsidized.  When the Sunshine Coast  Paratransit was introduced at  the end of July 1989, the  schedule was on a six month  trial basis. This will be reviewed  when the trial period expires  and further discussions will take  place as to the outcome of the  debate.  Decision making will not be  easy, Connor indicated, as  many passengers are quite happy with Maverick's service,  while others find the BC Transit  schedule meets their heeds.  Charter boats  If your boat is over five gross registered tonnes (approximately 24 feet in length) OR carries more than 12 passengers  you must apply for the Passenger Vessel Compliance Program before December 31,1989 or risk being prosecuted.  The Passenger Vessel Compliance Program is a limited  time offer set up to help chartering vessels comply with Canadian Steamship Inspection (CSI) standards. CSI regulations  do not apply to bareboat charters in which a vessel is rented  unless the charterer takes on paying passengers.  In Sechelt  Citizens to decide  council's payment  by Caryl Worden  The people will say how  much Sechelt District Council  gets paid. In a special meeting  November 31, council accepted  a recommendation from the  Cuff report that "a citizens  committee be struck prior to the  next civic election to review the  compensation policies as they  apply to council."  Alderman Wilson was  strongly opposed to the issue  which passed in a four to two  vote. "What does a citizens  committee have to do with the  stipend I might or might not  receive?" Wilson challenged.  "No, I can't agree to the  citizens committee or to the tim  ing, prior to the next election."  Sechelt Administrator Malcolm Shanks explained that the  intention was that the committee "make a recommendation  prior to the next election for the  next council rather than a council coming in and then setting  their stipend higher." He added  that the committee could get  guidelines from the Union of  BC Municipalities for statistics  of towns similar in size to  Sechelt.  "We're all underpaid anyway," Alderman Bob Wells  joked, "so at least the citizens  committee could take the blame  for any increase we get."  Wilson persisted in his opposition. "The directors of the  regional district have already,  right or wrong, decided what  they will receive in 1990.1 think  we should be reviewing our  compensation package," Wilson said. "We're going into  election time of three-year  periods now, and what - is this  citizens committee going to  meet once every three years to  consider what we'll receive or  not receive? No. No. No."  "Yes. Yes. Yes," Alderman  Mike Shanks responded. "I'd  rather have an independent  board dictate what I'm going to  get as an alderman, knowing  full well what the duties are. It'll  certainly sit a lot better with the  public." .     ���   '   ,  Carol Ship to tour  Porpoise Bay  by Caryl Worden  Carols wafting across the  water and lights twinkling on  bobbing boats will make for an  enchanting evening Decembr 16  when the third annual carol ship  cruise heads around Porpoise  Bay.  Seven   boats   have   already  pledged to participate according  to Trevor Kirby, an organizer  with The Sechelt Inlet Nativity  Gala (SING). These include the  Fletcher    Challenge    and  ^Weldwood   of   Canada   crew  boats, which will provide seats  for about 70 carpllers. .jA\.$5  vdqhation to the Sechelt "Food  B^uik guarantees a seat.  '    -Seniors from Shorncliffe and  the kiwanis Care Home will  take   part,   thanks   to   Don  t McKenzie who has donated the  ;use of his drive-on freighter  Redonda.   The  seniors'   mini  buses will be able to drive right  on board. McKenzie was one of  the founders of the carol ships  parade in Port Moody.  Several other private vessels,  including John Clayton's new  boat will also make the journey.  It begins at 4:30 pm sharp from  the Tyee dock, heads up the east  side of the inlet to Tuwanek,  ,. then back down the centre of  the inlet past Sunshine Heights,  where an on-shore bonfire and  fireworks are planned. The  parade will end about 7:30 pm  back at Tyee.  Kirby has arranged for a  skipper's meeting on Monday,  December 4 and another on  December 11 for latecomers.  , "For the safety of all concerned, all boat skippers must at-  ,, tend," he said. The meeting will  be at the home of McKenzie,  5718 Anchor Road, Sechelt, the  house next to the government  dock.  There is no entry cost for  boats, and a prize of a salmon  smoker donated by Trail Bay  Sports will be awarded to the  best decorated vessel.

We've entered the  last month of the second last  decade of this century. Prepare  for blast off!  So what do we do with the  last decade? In the words of a  John Lennon song it's "cleanup time".  If we are about to leave the  20th century, maybe it's time to  leave behind those parts of  ourselves that were spawned by  this last 100 years of culture.  We've perfected warfare, pollution and 'me-first' mentality.  We have the choice of taking  the positive aspects of our  development and leaving behind  the chaff. The Age of Aquarius,  which is the astrological time  period we're entering into (for  the next 2500 years or so), can  exemplify the best or the worst  of both technology and  selfishness.  Aquarius is ruled by Uranus,  which represents that aspect in  ourselves which is unique-  rebellious and ingenius. ft is  concerned with developing the  greatest individual potential for  the betterment of all. In other  words "if you take care of your  own needs, the world becomes a  better place."  It's a slippery concept and  full of potential misuse and  abuse. It's very easy to say, "I  need such and such, so I can't  be concerned with your  feelings."  That's valid, in a way, but  remember you'll inevitably be  dealing with the consequences  of your decisions too. Your  friend or partner may find it's  their need to stay away from  you.  I would suggest one of the  best ways to prepare for the  next century and the Age of  Aquarius, would be to learn as  much as possible about conflict  resolution. There are a wide  variety of books and classes  available which offer people the  tools to take care of their own  needs without violating others.  It may be, in 10 years' time,  that will be considered the most  important subject in high  school. If you can't pass conflict resolution, you won't  graduate.  You have a decade to  prepare. Look back a decade  and see how far you've come.  The next 10 years will involve  far more change than that, so  get going. Think very carefully  about your New Year's resolutions this time. You have  unlimited potential, so use it.  STOP  SMOKING  ��� -at ���:���.���:-. ',-���-.

On an October Sunday in  1932, Herb Wilson is summoned to the office of Captain  Breakfield, the new chief guard.  Breakfield eyes him disappointedly. "As you know,  Wilson, you have violated the  rules. After so many years of  good conduct on your part, I  find this most unfortunate.  Nonetheless, the offense has  been committed and I have no  recourse but to punish you for  it. You are hereby sentenced to  12 days in solitary confinement."  Wilson, as was his custom,  displays no visible emotion - but  inwardly, he feels a twinge of  apprehension. This means 'The  Hole' - the dreaded 'Dungeon'.  After years of relative comfort on 'B' Ward, the dungeon  comes as a rude shock to  Wilson. He has heard many  lurid rumours about the place  but none of them has prepared  him for the brutal reality. The  punishment block consists of 14  noisome stone cells set along a  dank passageway in the very  bowels of the prison. They are  closed off by heavy wooden  doors with only a tiny barred  aperture at the top for ventilation. Beyond a hard bunk, a  single blanket and a slop  bucket, the cells contain no  amenities whatsoever. Food  consists quite literally of bread  and water, dispensed by surly  wardens three times a day.  There are no lighing facilities in  the cells and the prisoners spend  most of their time in complete  darkness. Wilson settles into  those medieval quarters with extreme reluctance, having no  choice in the matter.  During the daytime hours  when the guards are prowling  about, no talking is permitted  among the prisoners. At night  however, the keepers lock the  whole unit up until morning,  and head thankfully for their  own quarters. It is during this  period - only distinguishable as  'night' by the absence of the  guards - that the voices in the ;  dungeon begin. ; ��� Y,  Talking is the only diversion^^  that the prisoners in solitary have  - and they make the most of it.  All night long the eager voices  chatter back and forth - spinning yarns about long-ago  capers, abortive escape attempts, other jails, lost women  who wouldn't wait. Some are  much more articulate than  others - but each has his story to  tell.  As a 'new fish', Herb Wilson  is quickly drawn into the wee-  hours repartee. He has plenty of  fascinating underworld experiences to relate" - and he  relates most of them in his  measured ungangsterlike voice  -to the delectation of his unseen  cellmates. "My Lord, Mr.  Preacher, you sure did give  them a run for their money,"  comments one prisoner, mightily impressed.  Two days after his release  from The Hole, Herb Wilson  receives notice that he is to appear before the parole board.  He hopes against hope that his  recent indiscretion will be  balanced against his previous  good record. Luck is not with  him. Wilson's stint in The  Dungeon serves to mitigate  against his eariy release. His  parole application is postponed  until April, 1933.  He returns to his hospital job,  disgruntled and furious with  himself. One thoughtless slip  has barred .the gates to freedom  for at least six months - perhaps  longer. There is nothing Wilson  can do but lose himself again in  his work and his writing.  To be continued...  fri., Dec. 8 & Sat., _!ee. 9 ��/&..

The surroundings are a very important part of any dining  experience. Muted shades of dusty rose and beige provide an  unobtrusive yet pleasing background, allowing the diner to  enjoy the always interesting view of Gibsons Harbour. Even  on a gray November day, the view across the sound is impressive, with the gray-green mountains disappearing into the  clouds.  There is a wide selection to choose from at the Omega, but  the daily specials attracted us.  My companion chose the shrimp salad. Truly fresh shrimp  nestled in a salad of crisp lettuce and slivered vegetables, garnished with lemon wedges and completed with a tasty seafood  dressing.  My choice was an old favourite, grilled cheese and crab  sandwich, accompanied by the same fresh salad.  The cost was modest, about $7 each, and the verdict on  both counts was'excellent'.  We decided that we must get together more often, and  after this delightful meal, the choice, I'm sure, will be the  Omega.  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

V  LOGGING & MJLBWE LTD.  by Harry Turner  Curling is basically a simple  game and until the recent years  of competitive curling and the  big money games, the sport had  decidedly few rules. Tlie rules  have increased due to the  decrease in the friendly sportsmanship and the desire to win  the big prizes that are often at  stake in modern competition.  These days, big games are  always adjudicated by an umpire and referee.  In a small club like ours,  friendly sportsmanlike games  are usual and strict adherence to  the rules is often ignored. One  of the most flagrant violations  of the rules in a club game is the  one about only skips and vice-  skips standing iri or behind the  house.  The proper place for those  players other than skip or third  is along the sides of the rink between the hoglines unless they  are delivering or sweeping a  stone. Violating this rule can  often distract the player who is  delivering their stone. ,  Another rule that is often  violated is the sweeping rule that  states a rock must be swept full  across the face of the stone.  This rule is designed to prevent  debris being swept under a stone  to slow it down if it is running  too fast.  Behind the tee line, no player  shall start to sweep a stone until  it reaches the nearer tee line.  Starting to sweep before the  rock reaches the near tee line is  commonly called warming the  ice and this is another forbidden  act. -  Touching a running stone  with the broom is also not  allowed. Normally such a stone  should be removed from play.  The old rule used to require  such a rock be immediately  removed the moment it was  burned (touched), but some innovative players who could see  that a stone was going to do  damage to their rocks or their  stone positions in the house  deliberately started to burn a  running stone.  To prevent this, a new rule  was introduced to the game.  This rule states that the opposing skip gets to determine if a  burned stone should be removed or allowed to finish its motion to the end of its course.  We are still looking for a few  curlers. There is space for a full  men's team on Thursday night  and we have room for more  curlers on Friday night. If you  are interested, come up to the  rink on one of those nights and  we will find a team for you. We  are always interested in new  curlers and new friends.  Coast Soccer  by Jim Brown  563?. WKarf, Rel,7,7 Sechelt.  ��� 88_*41.41  Well, I know that everyone  will be sad to hear there is only  one more soccer game in all age  groups before our mid-season  break.  Let's go over one rule of the  game that some people get mixed up on. It is the off-side rule.  First, you can't be off-side on  your own half of the field and  second, you can't be off-side in  the opposition's half if you  have:  a) the soccer ball between you  and their goal line;  b) if you don't have the ball  but there are two of the opposition's players between you and  the goal line. ���  This last rule gets people confused a lot. You-have to have  two of the opposite team's  players . between you arid the  goal line; you can't be even with  the secorid to last player or  you'll be off-side.  If you look at the outcome of  some of the games, the score  might not be right but the final  outcome of the game will be  correct. Sometimes when I get  the scores, the winner/loser of  the game sticks in my mind but  the actual score evades me so  I'll show the team winning by a  score of 1 to 0.  Don't worry if you beat a  team with a score of 6 to 0 and  in the weekly writeup the score  is reported as a 1 to 0 win. The  important thing is that the team  that wins gets the credit for the  win in the league standings.  In the 8 and 9-year-old division there were two games. In  the first game Gibsons Orange  defeated Oceanview Service by  a score of 1 to 0. The second  game in this age group saw  Roberts Creek defeat Shop Easy  by a score of 1 to 0 also.  In the 10 and 11-year-old age  group Sechelt Pharmasave beat  GBS by a score of 4 to 1. The  GBS team really played well and  showed lots of spirit throughout  the game seeing as they only had  Men's  Hockey  by Mark Benson  The Buccaneers remained  tied with Roberts Creek for  fourth place in the sue team  league thanks to a last minute  goal by the Bucs to produce a 4  to 4 tie in Mens Hockey.  The Creek got off to a fast  start on a pair of goals by Pat Y  Taylor   and   singles   by   Al  Gradasek   and  Steve  Marsh.' '���:  But, the Buccaneers just kept on  plugging away producing goals  by   Kerry   Baker, ;Randy,  Marlow, and a pair by' Scptty  Patton, one of which was :the  game.-tieing goal late in the.  -game;YY ���' '������'  .-.-'���' ���.

There was one other game in  this league and in that game  Wakefield narrowly defeated  Powell River by a score of 2 to  1.  The other game scheduled  was between Sliammon and the  Lighthouse Pub but the  Lighthouse team came down  with the anti-travel disease.

SHOP LOCALLY  i":0:|  CAPILANO  COLLEGE  Help Us Chart Our Future  During the past year, we have been re-writing Capilano College's  mission statement to reflect the political, technological, economic,  sociological, and demographic changes in the College's environment.  In drafting the statement, we have taken into consideration the views  of constituent groups within the College, and now would like to  provide an opportunity for input from members of the community.  A community forum is scheduled for:  Thursday, December 7 at 7 pm  at the Sechelt campus.  Refreshments will be served.  THE MISSION AND VALUES  The mission of Capilano College is to become a post-secondary  institution of first choice for students and to enable them to  contribute effectively as responsible citizens in a rapidly changing  global community.  .The College will accomplish this mission by emphasizing scholarship  and achievement in a selective range of high-quality academic,    ,;y,i: Y  :   carefer, and vocational programs. To enhance learning for students;/^  the College shall offer excellent instruction and support services in an  attractive environment. The College will instill students with the  motivation and broad-based knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable  them to become independent learners and thinkers, to succeed in  further studies, and to achieve occupational goals and personal  aspirations.  This mission statement reflects the following values:  Students  Students' needs are the first concern of the College. The College  strives to provide suitable curricula and support services to sustain  students' personal growth and cultural enrichment. It believes that all  students, whatever their background, should leave the College with  enhanced skills in literacy, numeracy, critical thinking, and with a  positive attitude toward learning. To these ends, it expects and values  the commitment of students to the learning process.  Teaching and Learning Conditions  The College values everyone involved in the teaching and learning  process. It regards faculty and staff as its greatest assets in  developing excellent programming and services. The College  recognizes that faculty, staff and administrators serve as active  models of citizenship, scholarship, and professionalism. The College  also recognizes effective, responsible administration as a necessity for  establishing and maintaining good conditions for teaching and  learning.  Community  The College considers itself an important resource in the economic  and cultural life of its immediate region and beyond: to the rest of  the province, the nation, and internationally. It seeks both to  respond to community needs and to offer its expertise and leadership  in actively helping its communities to anticipate future needs,  problems, and opportunities.  Accountability  The College believes it should be accountable, both fiscally and  educationally. It commits itself to allocating resources fairly to  ensure that all students receive a sound education suited to their  needs, to explaining its policies and achievements to the public, and  to a thoughtful and ethical exercise of the power it exerts over its  members and its community.  Innovation  The College encourages rigorous, ongoing analysis and evaluation of  its effectiveness. It supports those wishing to develop instructional  methods and curricula to improve the teaching of present programs  and to meet emerging needs of students and the community. It  supports the use of appropriate technologies to meet these needs.  The College accepts the reality of constant change and the need for  planning and flexibility in meeting the demands of change.  If you wish a complete copy of the document which identifies  strategic zones and opportunities for Capilano College, please call  Barb Boyce at 984-4987.  We look forward to seeing you and receiving your input at the  forum.  Nancy Farley, Doug Jardin  Board Chairman President  5627 inlet Avenue ���Secheit �� British Columbia  ���A r18.

These changes are a  product of a political system  undergoing tremendous social  change and it is all being done  peacefully.  The Soviet Union has loosened its political and military control of its satellite nations having realized, as all imperialistic  powers must, that a military  cannot control foreign 'colonies'.  As we listen daily to newscasters giving sanctimonious accounts of the 'failure of  Socialism' and the great  triumph of Capitalism, we  don't hear much of this type of  analysis in relation to Central  America - the satellite colonies  of the USA.  President Bush announces he  is a great friend of Terestroika'  and in the same speech defends  the bombing of peasants in El  Salvador by US helicopters as  what is necessary to 'stop Communism in Central America'.  Hardliners within the Bush  administration are not about to  loosen the grip on Central  America. In El Salvador those  who might oppose the government are systematically murdered and over $1 million in  military and economic aid flow  Sunshine Coast  Services  MARINE SERVICES  Need this space?

In Guatemala death squads  are more active than ever and  each month the Central  American Support Committee  here on the Sunshine Coast is  requested to send telegrams  concerning the students and  peasants who are tortured and  shot daily by half a dozen  paramilitary organizations  many with direct links to the  CIA.  In Nicaragua attacks by the  Contras have increased markedly in these weeks preceeding the  Nicaraguan elections. Since the  Sandinista government started  its ceasefire in March of 1988,  more than 730 Nicaraguans  have been killed by Contras,  more than 1120 have been  wounded and more than 230  have been kidnapped.  The Contra forces have  recently been bolstered by more  'humanitarian' aid from congress ($49 million) yet observers  say small terrorist bands are  receiving air-dropped new  military supplies daily. Observation teams established by the  UN and the Organization of  American States say the Contra  are jeopardizing the electoral  process as electoral officials,  municipal candidates, electors  on their way to register and  FSLN partisans engaged in canvassing have been killed,  wounded and kidnapped.  Less deadly yet equally  objectionable the US is actively  working to distort the election  by providing illegal funds to opposition parties. Nicaraguan  law allows foreign contributions  to political parties (a practice illegal in the US), however half of  that money must go to the  Supreme Electoral Council  which must pay for the tremendously expensive process of carrying on an election in an  underdeveloped country. The  US has provided in US dollars,  $3.5 million directly to the main  opposition party UNO and $9  million to' the remaining opposi-  fion parties. : - ;-;  L-,|n spijte.pf iall. this over j 1.69  ji^iori ?&i&rag^^  registered to vote and the UN  election observer team,  ONUyEN, and that of the  Organization of American  States, both verify the legitimacy and validity of the electoral process to date while  criticizing the impact of the US  intervention.  The Canadian government  claims to be taking a stand apart  from that of the US yet our  department of external affairs  has done little to publicly differ  from the Bush administration.  Canadians can pressure our  government to act through our  new membership in the Organization of Amercian States  ��� (OAS) to bring Honduras and  the Contras back into negotiations.  The Sunshine Coast Central  American Support Committee  urges everyone to write Joe  .Clark, House of Commons, Ottawa, K1A 0A6 asking to push  for a policy of reconciliation  and non-intervention in keeping  with the Tela agreement recently signed by the Central  American Presidents.

GLASSFORD  PRESS  DESIGN STUDIOS  Glassford Press Design Studios, Box 460, Gibsons, BC VON 1V0  Rocket..'  watching  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Your correspondent is just a  bit out of touch with Halfmoon  Bay Happenings this week, having just spent a glorious week's  vacation   in   Florida   in   a  12-storey apartment right on the  beautiful sandy beach where  there is  nothing  to be seen  beyond the Atlantic Ocean. No  islands nor landmarks. I believe  the nearest land is in Africa.  Quite beautiful with pounding  waves   which   can   keep   one  awake all night until used to it.  The highlight of the holiday  was seeing the night launching  of the space shuttle Discovery as  it blasted off staging a brilliant  fireworks show as it rode twin  700 foot geysers of fire into orbit.  Night turned into day as we  watched the actual takeoff  which was less than 100 miles  away from where we stood on  our balcony. The sky was  cloudless and the sight dazzling  as it flashed to life with a light  twice as brilliant as the sun.  At about two minutes after  liftoff the spent boosters fell off  leaving the shuttle still visible as  a very bright star in the sky even  when it was more than 650 miles  away and travelling at approximately 6800 mph.  We watched it fade away until it was out of sight and realized what a wonder the whole  thing was and that inside that  shuttle there were five human  beings.  This happened on the evening  before the American Thanksgiving, and there was a feeling  of great celebration as everyone  stood on their balconies clapping and cheering, cameras were  flashing and the excitement and  pride of this accomplishment  rubbed off to those of us who  had no affiliation with the  USA.  It was a once in a lifetime,  thrilling experience, which will  be remembered for the rest of  -���'my life.- ��� ti.y  BRIDGE PLAYERS  Those who enjoy bridge  afternoons at Welcome Beach  Hall please take note that, due  to the Christmas luncheon on  December 15 there will be no  bridge until after the New Year.  Please watch this column for  later announcements as to startup date.  Also a reminder that if you  plan to attend either of the  Christmas dinners at the hall  you should be making your  reservations now.  POST OFFICE NOTE  Watch out in your mail in the  near future for another letter  from the Post Office in Vancouver informing you as to the  date of a meeting which will be  taking place to decide who will  receive the franchise to run the  Halfmoon Bay Post Office.  At the present time Uli, the  new owner, is temporary post  mistress for some three months  until a decision is made by  Canada Post as to who among  those bidding, will receive the  franchise.  The meeting will be held in  the Halfmoon Bay School, date  as yet unknown. Will announce  it as soon as word is received on  this important meeting.  FIREMEN'S WARNING  The fellows in our local  volunteer fire department show  how much they care about our  welfare when they go to the  trouble of passing on a few  words of advise for your safety  during the holidays.  They remind us all that with  Christmas approaching, we  must be careful with the use of  ornamental lighting. Avoid extension cords and the octopus  tangle of overloaded sockets. If  using natural trees, place them  in containers of water to avoid  drying out.  Thanks for the warnings.  For those who are planning  to attend the Christmas dinners  at Welcome Beach Hall, please  take note that due to limitation  of numbers you are requested to  make your reservations by  Thursday, December 7.

Editor:  On behalf of the Sunshine  Coast Maritime History Society  (SCMHS) we would like to  thank you for allowing us the  space to voice our sincere  thanks to all citizens of Gibsons  who attended the public  meeting to voice their  preference as relates to the uses  of the newly acquired park site.  The much sought process of  democracy is alive and thriving  on the Sunshine Coast, and we  express our profound ap-  preciaton.  That being said, we would  single out her worship Mayor  Diane'Strom for the masterful  conduct of the meeting. In our  own (maritime) terms, we  would say that she was "sailing  well before the wind and in  spanking trim".  Not to be excluded are the  members of council whose  astute comments were clear and  concise, thereby giving this  meeting a quality of professionalism seldom experienced.  To cap the subject, we offer a  hearty thank you to each citizen  who attended. To those who expressed favour toward the  'Discovery' project, we say the  confidence you have displayed  shall not be breathed.  To those who voiced concerns, particularly about the  museum segment, let us assure  you that these very real and  practical concerns have  'generated the seeds of a whole  new and viable approach to the  subject. Rest assured that the  'Discovery' project has been  designed with the flexibility to  accommodate that which is best  for the whole area, and that  your concerns and input are  valuable to us.  We would be pleased to answer any questions you may  have at our public display in the  Sunnycrest Mall on Saturday,  December 9.  In ending, let us say that we  shall stay in touch and will bring  about a museum proposal that  is certain to be beneficial to all.  Joe Belanger  SCMHS  What's your dream?

We begin with Gibsons  Alderman John Reynolds who  has been in office since  November 1987.  Gibsons Alderman John  Reynolds, 39, wore a number of  hats before assuming yet  another one as a member of the  town's council in 1987. He has  held, he told the Coast News  during a quick lunch-time interview at Andy's Restaurant,  "clerk-type jobs" in financial  organizations, has worked as a  photographer and as a commercial diver, has been an assistant  Gibsons Alderman John Reynolds takes time out to talk to the  Coast News.

Descriptions of persons and  vehicles (including plate and/or  ���permit numbers) who are involved in these thefts would be  appreciated.  Anyone with direct  knowledge is encouraged to  phone Gibsons detachment.  Sometime in early November  a thief or thieves stole a Sears 25  inch 7 HP riding lawnmower  model number 502.652000 from  the Russel Road area. Cost of  the mower is approximately  $2000.  Anyone who may have recently purchased such a  machine second hand or anyone  who has information concerning this theft is requested to  contact Gibsons RCMP.  Gibsons RCMP are requesting the public's assistance in  locating a motor vehicle involved in a hit and run accident on  November 26; Yy  iYJhe accident^ occurred about  5:30 pm near Crowe Road and  Highway 101. The suspect vehicle is described as a brown or  beige Pontiac product.  It passed another vehicle on  the right gravel shoulder while  travelling into Gibsons striking  the front quarter panel.  Damage to the suspect vehicle  should be on the left side.

People buying firewood are  requested to know whom they  Gilligans Pub  leeks beer  and wine store  Beginning Monday, December 4, residents and businesses  within a half mile radius of  Gilligans Pub in Sechelt will be  asked their opinions on a proposed beer and wine store.  Gilligans owner, Arden In-  kstser, has applied for the new  license, and the referendum will  run until January 2, 1990.

The jobs, not necessarily in  the order listed above, moved  him from his hometown of  Toronto, via Vancouver to Gibsons and now, he says, he can't  imagine living anywhere else in  Canada.  Reynolds presently works.as  an audio-visual/computer  repairman for the school district  four days a week, runs a com-  mercial diving company called  A1-Divers Ltd., and does computer repairs "on the side". He  is also a volunteer fireman and  the treasurer of the White  Tower Medieval Society, and he  and his wife, Debbie, have two  children, Katrina, three, and  Jennifer, one.  Reynolds, who has lived in  Gibsons since 1980, had his interest in local politics sparked, .,���  around five years ago,  at a  meeting in regards to the marina ���  project but it took  four at- v  tempts before he was successful-. _,,  ly elected to council.  "I was fiercely independent  and relatively unknown," he  said. "Sure it was tough (to get  elected), but 1 kept trying and  told them the only way to get  me off the ballots is to elect  me!"  But, apparently, Reynolds  went into the job with his eyes  open and never expected to like  it. "I never expected'to enjoy  the job, and 1 don't particularly, but I still feel that I have to  do it."  Why? "Because it is important that I am involved in" get'sv  ting the best people on council  and I'm one of them in my opinion. If there were better people  around, there wouldn't be a  need for me and I could go back  to enjoying spending the time  that I do being an alderman,  doing something else.'' :";.  Although, Reynolds says  there have been no particular  "highs" since he has sat on  council, there has been one big  "low", and that was the recent  failure of the Town of Gibsons  to restructure with Areas E and  F.  "Restructuring is a major  disappointment," he said. "Not  because the initiative failed but  because we never had the opportunity to find out if it would  have passed or not." He feels it  would have been best for the  economic well-being of the  community. "Not just Gibsons,  but the community."  But in regards to issues on a  wider scope, Reynolds said his  biggest concern is "no question  about it - the environment."  "I'm not trying to jump on  any bandwagons, I've always  felt that way."  He has never sat down, he  said, and put a particular  philosophy of life into so many  words but he has always been a  pacifist and that is part of the  way he feels about things. His  main interests, he says, lie in  science and new technology.  "Nuclear stuff has always had a  fascination for me and the hope  of clean fusion power is a  wonderful concept."  His political philosophy,  however, he has no trouble  with.  "When I speak my mind  other people either agree with  me or they don't. It doesn't  matter if I get what I think is  good or bad but the mere fact  that the process ensures that the  people around the table get their  vote is what is important."  He has no aspirations for  pursuing a political role on a  level higher than the local one  and he might or might not run  again for alderman. "Ask me  that again next year," he said.
