 ������x  II ���  Its  m  W  'A  fi *  Dixon urges  Area E  restructuring  by Ellin Frith  Urging the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  to "act quickly and make the  right decision for the survival of  the Sechelt Inlet", Area C  Director Stan Dixon promoted  a restructuring of his area to incorporate the whole of Sechelt  Inlet at last: week's board  meeting.  The board agreed and moved  to form an adfhoc committee  under Director, of Planning  Brett McGillivray (Area D  Director) to establish new boundaries for Area <| and to recommend to the provincial government that it implement the new  boundary changes as soon as  possible. y  "I am not here to save my  position as Area C Director,"  Dixon told the board.  "As I see the results of the activities now ; in the Sechelt  Inlet," he said, "I can only feel  frustrated because of our  hypocrisy, not to mention all  the. time and e)ffort that went into the Sechelt Inlet Study and  the expense toy complete it."  He asked: "What good is this  study if it Jioes not have a  jurisdictional authority to implement and guide its recommendations limilar to that of a  well Y developed Community  Plan?^      I  It is the environmental issues  at stake in the inlet, Dixon said.  "Will the Sechelt Inlet ever  regain its thriving past? Is the  SCRD with all its wisdom going  to act quickly and make the  right decision for the survival of  the Sechelt Inlet or will we all  watch it commit slow suicide  and become the latest Dead  Sea."  According to Dixon, the present situation is this:  " 1. Area F is in favour of realignment of Area F boundaries  so that the Sechelt Inlet  becomes new territory to Area  C;  "2. Area E also recommends.  a physical boundary re-alignment to accommodate better  management of the Sechelt Inlet  as a whole;  "3. Area D does not want  Area C to be absorbed into  Roberts Creek. Area D is unique as it is;  "4. Area B, if it relinquishes  its Sechelt Inlet boundary and  approves a re-alignment giving  the Sechelt Inlet to Area C,  would most certainly help iri  creating proper management of  the Sechelt Inlet;  "5. Area A would have to  relinquish a very small portion  of its territory to Area C to fit  the entire Sechelt Inlet foreshore  study into a newly formed and  re-aligned Area C."  Area   A   Director   Gordon  Wilson   admitted,   when   the  board was asked by the Coast  Please turn to page 7  oily ferry  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) is about to get  tough with BC Ferries. Either  the corporation cleans up its act  and implements a recycling program on its Horseshoe Bay to  Langdale ferry run or it may  well face hefty tip fees at the  regional landfill site and a possible termination of its privileges  there.   - ���   \  "The amount of plastic and  garbage on the ferry is absolutely incredible,*? Area A Director  Gordon Wilson said at the  December 7 \ board meeting,  "and it is dumped into our  landfill at a cost to our taxpayers." Apparently the BC  Ferry Corporation presently  uses the SCRD landfill site free  of charge.  The board agreed the provincial government was paying "a  tremendous amount of lip service" tb environmental issues  without taking any initiatives to  implement recycling programs  or to reduce the volume of  waste on the ferries.  Citing the number of disposable plastic utensils on the ferries, Wilson said the corporation could begin improving the  situation by "installing a  dishwasher and hiring somebody."  The most ridiculous of all  plastics on board, he said was  "the little plastic bubble" used  to cover the food.  "You throw that away almost immediately," he said.  listening Intently to the wishes of this young boy, Santa got an  earful on Saturday as kid? and parents lined up to see him in Trail  Bay Centre Mall in Sechelt. ���EDen Frith photo  Gibsons Elementary students turned out in full force Friday night  at Holland Park to sing Christmas carols.

The consensus that emerged  from the all-day meeting was  that preserving the Chapman  and Gray Creek watersheds, as  the main water source for the  area, was the paramount concern.  There was also some hope  that the water, recreational and  wildlife values of the Tetrahedron Plateau could be saved  by finding another Timber Supply Area (TSA) to exchange for  the 651 hectares of alpine  wilderness now controlled by  Jackson Brothers Logging.  "It's an extremely small area  with high recreational; value,"  said Ric Careless of the  Wilderness Tourism Council,  who urged the forest service to  impose a logging moratorium  while environmental studies are  being done in the area. An integrated water management  plan for the Chapman Creek  watershed was recently approved by the Water Management  Branch.  Careless, who lives in Gibsons, said the area had the only  hut-to-hut skiing within easy  reach of Vancouver. He called  the area an 'attraction' for the  Sunshine Coast, bringing in  valuable adventure tourism  dollars, which last year  amounted to $150 million  province-wide and is expected  to increase to a half billion  dollars annually by the turn of  the century.  He said additional replanting  or utilization of existing Forest  Reserve land would compensate  for Jackson Brothers' loss of  the alpine land, which amounted to less than one per cent of  the Sunshine Coast's TSA.  Gordon Wilson, Area A  Director for the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD), suggested a compensation package  be put together to pre-empt  Jackson Brothers doing further  logging. He also suggested an  integrated land use strategy be  done, not only for the  Tetrahedron Plateau area; but  for the whole district.  Jackson Brothers General  ^Manager Bobbie Braich said his  iCHsmpanyy would welcome -a  jtimber volume swap. But he  said until that is done, uncertainty about the area's status  caused planning problems for  his company, which employs 55  people and^ had a payroll last  year of $1.3 million.  Forest District manager Barry  Mountain said his ministry was  not considering a moratorium  for the area, adding that it  wasn't ministry policy to pay  cash to companies for wilderness lands. He said there was no  surplus timber supply in the  district. "The pie's been all cut  - Up.'-*-7-- - '��� ���- .-      7   .>;���'-, ,-   ������ '������   '..  But Mountain said his ministry was trying to regain the  public's trust' by holding public  meetings over forestry policy.  "We want to know what you  want done with your forest."  Steve Holland spoke on behalf of the area's various users  groups, representing skiing, hiking, canoeing, fishing, logging  and other activities. He said  safeguarding the watershed and  recreational values of the area  requires strong input from com  munity and user groups.  Holland, said users had no  problem^ with cdnu^^foresC  resource harvesting. But he said  past logging methods in the  area, including clear-cut logging,  "have left something to be  desired." Instead, he suggested  selective and patch logging procedures.  James Bartley, president of  the Elphinstone Electors'  Association, called for an immediate stop to logging in the  area until a complete environmental impact study had  Please turn to page 6  Lease land near airport  Pipeline crew in area  by Caryl Worden  Majestic Pipeliners Ltd. will  move into the airport in  January, after Sechelt District  Council voted unanimously on  December 6 to lease the company nine acres of land.  The main contractor for the  natural gas pipeline project,  Majestic will pay $1500 a month  rent for the raw land in a 15 to  18-month lease now being  drawn up by the district. "As  well we got the best possible  deal by getting land improvements," said Alderman  David Wells, Chairman of the  Airport Committee.  These improvements include  re-aligning the road behind the  first six surveyed lots and extending to the BC Hydro road; installing about 200 metres of  waterline; and developing a new  road along the right-of-way adjacent to BC Hydro.  "This, is a perfect locale for  us," John Howard of Majestic  told the Coast News in an interview Friday. Howard said they  opted for the airport site  because it is centrally located  and makes it easy to bring in  supplies and personnel. Majestic will use the land for pipe  storage, vehicle parking and an  office site.  "We've just begun land  clearing (for the pipeline)," explained Howard, who arrived  on the Coast two weeks ago to  get things rolling for Majestic.  The Edmonton-based company  was hired by Pacific Coast  Energy, the overall project ad  ministrator.  Until spring, only about 40  people will be working on the  project, according to Howard.  "But after that we'll gradually  be growing to about 200 people  in total," he said.  One of Howard's main concerns for the New Year is to find  housing for all his crews. "I've  heard that the market's pretty  tight, but we'll be running ads  in the paper looking for room  and  board  situations.   We've  had the same problem in other  small communities I've worked  in, but people always come  through," he said.  The workers will be here  about two months beginning in  April and since the job starts in  Secret Cove and will run down  to Port Mellon, housing will be  needed all along the Coast.  "The spinoffs for Sechelt in the  way of rent, food, entertainment etc. will certainly be felt,"  Howard predicted.  Candlelight service  A candlelight service for the victims of last week's mass  killing at the University of Montreal will be held at 7 pm  tonight in Rockwood Centre.  All are invited to attend and are asked to bring their own  candle to remember the 14 young women who died.  Post Office news  Residents of West Sechelt will have to pick up their  Christmas parcels at the new retail postal outlet that opened  December 5 at the Corner Cupboard, 6506 Mason Road.  In an effort to lighten the load of the overworked staff in  the Sechelt Post Office, Canada Post has set up two area  franchises to handle stamp sales, money orders and other  postal services.

It would be interesting, in the aftermath of this,  Canada's worst mass killing, to determine just how many  people, both male and female, harbour those qualmish  feelings that perhaps the women's movement, directly or  indirectly, led to the horror and, in fact, might be to blame  for many of society's ills.  It's an unsettling thought but what is even more unsettling is that many people believe it to be true.  A recent news story in The Province reports a Nova  Scotia policeman as advocating that husbands who beat  their wives should hit harder; there is the now infamous  judge who labelled a baby girl "sexually aggressive" at  three years of age; and the new abortion law which, once  again, removes a woman's right to direct her own fertility.  It's easy to believe that if women have come a long way  in the last 30 years, they apparently haven't come far  enough.  According to statistics provided by Time, the great majority believe the women's movement helped women  become more independent and is still improving women's  lives. It does not look down on women who do not have  jobs, is not anti-family and is not out of date in its goals.  But 58 per cent do not consider themselves feminists and  18 per cent say the movement has been harmful to women.  Certainly, as the above-mentioned news stories reveal,  the women's movement hasn't prevented grievous crimes  against women. And the wage gap between the sexes is still  shocking, no-fault divorce has largely benefitted men and  impoverished women and those women who have full-time  jobs or careers usually go home to do 75 per cent of the  housework.  Still and all, very few women polled would choose to  return to the days when female worth was measured out in  spoonfuls of motherhood and marriages.  And as one of the young women badly wounded in last  week's shooting in Montreal said from her hospital bed,  she hoped women would continue going into engineering  because it was a good career.

It's country, with a  little bit of city, too. You can  decorate your home with  Christmas baubles and decorations from the old days. Some  of these include glass santa faces  dipped in silver paint and  bumply white sparkles, red glass  beads on a string to imitate holly berries, clear glass dangling  stars and icycles, and who could  forget the glass ornaments  painted bright colours and silver  with the impression in the centre  which all of us probably  remember poking a fat little  finger into one Christmas or  "another.      "r"     "'"'"'"  My favourite places to buy  Christmas decorations, if I am  going that route are the many  craft fairs held on the Coast  every season. There seems to be  an incredible amount of local  talent on the Sunshine Coast.  Maybe it's the atmosphere of  country, or maybe it's the  availability of raw materials  such as holly, cedar and fir  cones. Or maybe there are a lot  of talented people who just love  to make beautiful things to sell  locally. Whatever it is there is a  very big market for this type of  craft. Christmastime seems to  bring out the magic.  There are also quite a few  good old country stores on the  Coast that cater to the nostalgia  in many of us.  Put aside the commercialism  we see today. I won't let it spoil  my Christmas.  Another nice thing about  Christmas in the country is that  you can walk outdoors anywhere and collect your own  cedar boughs, fashion a wreath  out of them with fir cones and a  sprig or two of holly. It looks so  natural and fresh. Add a few  glass balls or a touch of tinsel  and there you have it, a  beautiful Christmas creation  done by yourself. How simple,  but you can get fancy and fussy,  too, if that's your style.  Yn ��� .;.fphen. there's the tree. We  have great local organizations,  ;' such as the Boy Scouts, that offer one everything from small  pines to huge firs at a rather  reasonable price, but me, I  prefer to spend the day choosing and hauling home our very  own tree. We take the kids, dog  and the cats who would like to  come too, pile into the old  pickup and head for the  boonies.  I love it when we get high  enough to hit the snow level.  We don't get much snow on the  Sunshine Coast, especially at  Christmastime, but you can  always get to some if you make  the effort. The kids and dog  now jump for joy.  Stop, stop. Let's get out and  play. Hey, we brought our  toboggan. We've got our mitts  and toques on. We'll just go a  bit farther but let's please not  get stuck. We pull up and turn  around. Everyone jumps out.  What fun. It's colder, fresher,  but the snow is so wet. But who  cares? This is Christmas and I  love it.  Now to find just the right size  and bushiness in trees. My  favourite Christmas tree has  always been the good old fir. It  smells so wonderful. I wish that  smell could be bottled. The only  part I don't like is the chopping  of the tree. It seems to be a cruel  waste, but if you keep your tree  really well watered, and cut it  freshly at a slant before you put  it in a stand or bucket, it will remain fresh for quite a while.  I make a point of planting a  tree for every tree I take. It  makes me feel a little less guilty  for chopping down one of these  small beauties.  Meanwhile the kids have  become soaked to the skin, the  dog is a smelly mess, so let's get  ourselves home and have something hot to drink. Out will  come a tin of gingerbread men  and cherry-topped shortbread  to have with our drinks.  My daughter remarks "I can  smell Christmas, Mom -1 can't  wait for my hot cocoa. Let's  go."  And away we roll, slipping  and sliding some of the time in  the wet snow, down the side of  the mountain to share, in our  day of Christmas decorating.  Our home is warm, happy, and  full of the joy that Christmas  brings.

Robert Frost  Tyner Talk  Time for federal action  by James. H. Tyner  The Mulroney Government  seems unable to provide the  leadership and vision necessary  to maintain the confidence of  the country. It is true the  government spends freely -some  say the money is just thrown  around.  When money is wanted for  any reason, the government is  asked and though the project  may be worthless, the money is  often given. Some groups never  think of raising money  anymore, they just ask for a  grant; a gift without need of  repayment.  Mind you the government is  tough enough when it comes to  collecting it but when they get it  the toughness seems to  evaporate.  However, increasing revenues  by taxation has become difficult  and the government did try to  reduce expenditures by de-  indexing the old age pensions  and when that failed, cut its  universality even though everyone has paid for them through  taxation. All our active life we  pay and at the end we get a  small pension which must be  supplemented from other  sources if we are to survive.  At one time the tax for the  old age pensions was shown  separately on the tax return but  with the passage of time, the  government decided to include  it with other taxation. If the  government handled the money  collected for the pension funds  the way it insists the financial  institutions control funds  received for private pension  plans (investing only in projects  of proven worth), then we  would have an impressive  organization able to pay worthwhile pensions.  Provided satisfactory terms  were established this would  have been a good source of  funds for provincial and  municipal governments to  ���finance much needed projects  such as water and irrigation  systems, proper sewage treatment facilities, provision for  park and wildlife areas  and  restoration of the environment.  If such a method of controlling  pensions had been established,  then many of these things the  provincial and municipal  governments could have done  without being forced into the  financial markets of the world  where it is at the mercy of inflation and varying foreign exchange rates.  In any event, the person who  supplements his pension by savings is vulnerable to inflation.  Inflation these days is caused  not so much by scarcity as by  excessive government spending.  It spends far beyond its  revenues and acts as if it is all  right as long as there is money  to borrow. In the end, the  money borrowed must be  repaid and as the government  seems incapable of raising taxes  or cutting expenditures its only  recourse would seem to be inflation.      Y  Because of the real fear of inflation brought on by the  government's apparent inability  either to materially reduce.the  annual deficit or its massive  debt many are looking for investments not likely to be affected by the menace - real  estate, gold shares, foreign currencies and investments being  considered.  Inflation is a form of taxation  which falls heavily upon the  saver. With excessive inflation  they will find the purchasing  power of their savings reduced  -their retirement security lost  -their ability to finance their  future curtailed.  Inflation destroys the savings  of those people the government  depends on to provide them  with funds.  The national debt was never  so high and going' higher and  the government seems to lack  the will to reduce it. If they  would do what they were elected  to do - namely govern the country - there would be no real problem for them to balance the  budget and reduce the debt.  It is time the government did  what it was elected to do and  stop worrying about getting reelected.  ����_  A  BLUE .  :R(6BON  AWARP  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  I  b Coast News, December 11,1989  utiaty deserves a Press apolo  Editor:  Vern Elliott a selfless, humble, quiet, little man has had his  life snuffed out at an all too early age in an unfortunate traffic  ^adcident.  Some poor soul has left the  scene of this accident and  thereby committed a criminal  and inhuman act. He or she will  have to live with this for the rest  of his or her life whether apprehension by the police takes  place or hot.  I believe Mr. Price, the editor  of The Press, has made a  serious error in publishing a  report of this accident by Mr.  McDowell.  Mr. McDowell would appear  to be a mean-spirited, small-  minded, vindictive man with  seemingly  mediocre  reporting  abilities. He has written a most  insensitive article with little  regard for Vern or the many  friends he left behind.  What little I knew of Vern  Elliott came from short by  chance meetings at different  community events. He struck  me as a pleasant, unassuming  man of good humour and I am  saddened by the taking of his  life as we all should be by the  senseless loss of any life be it  man or animal. Life is precious.  I am also sincerely sorry for  the poor soul who left the scene  of the accident. I can only  assume that alcohol, poor  judgement, panic and or fear  caused this person to be so  callous. Vem Elliott will live on  every day in a sad and tortured  corner of that person's mind  until death inevitably stills it  also.  Mr. Price, I am sure, is now  well aware of his error in printing such a thoughtless article. I  have known Al Price for some  time and he has gone out of his  way to show me personal kindness when I have had my own  problems.  I believe he is a kind-hearted  person who has the well-being  of this community at heart and  would deliberately harm no  one. To err is human and I can  forgive this article when The  Press issues the apology that  many people in this community  justly expect.  For Mr. McDowell I have no  sympathy. I believe he has  shown himself once again to be  our coastal artisan of the poison  pen. His so called reporting in  this case appears to be little  more than distasteful muck raking and innuendo directed at a  deceased person unable to respond. You reap what you sow  and Mr. McDowell has finally  gone too far and justly deserves,  the condemnation of the entire  community.  Mr. Proctor, the publisher,  would do well to look into his  conscience, remember his own  family's sad misfortunes, and  give serious consideration as to  whether or not he wished to  publish any further articles of  Mr. McDowell's.  There is no room in a small  community for journalism of  this type. An apology is called  for and justifiably expected.  Mac Richardson  Wood Bay, B.C.  And now...in defence of Jim McDowell  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Editor, The Press  Re: Jim McDowell story, on the  death of Vern Elliott, December  5, The Press.  While I have been out of  town more often than not lately, the furor over the above-  mentioned news article has  come to my attention.  I have studied the articles and  would like to submit the following observations from this person's perspective.  In its very finality, death is  tragic and my deep sympathy  goes out to the family and  friends of the victim of this  senseless accident.  As it happens, I myself, was  hit by a car not long ago and  mercifully not injured, certainly  terrified. It was a senseless midday error in judgement both on  my part and the part of the  driver. Upset though I was, I  wasn't nearly as upset as the  driver. A youngish man, 35 or  so, who was so shaken all he  could do was sob, "I looked at  you but I didn't even see you."  All the while a small crowd of  witnesses had gathered with the  single-himded' intent of counselling me to sue.

There was no more sense to  my persecuting that young man  further - one look at him was all  that was needed to convince any  human being that he had suffered an experience through  sheer inattention that he will  never, I'm convinced, repeat  nor forget.  The human condition is, in  my opinion, asking for review  in 1989 - are we really losing  sight of our reasoned values and  turning into the litiginous society that appears to exist south of  the 49th?  As I write this somewhere is  the human being who killed  Vern Elliott. We know he or she  is a coward because the  perpetrator has not come forward, or do we? Was the  hapless driver under the influence of a drug or alcohol?  Was the experience so horrifying that Mother Nature took  over and caused them to blank  it out. Whatever, he or she, is  unimaginably affected by what  happened during that fateful  night.  Which brings me back to  McDowell who is a professional  journalist. The concise Oxford  dictionary defines a journalist  as one whose business is to edit  and write for a public journal.  Journalists are frequently referred to as 'reporters'. The above-  mentioned tome defines 'to  report' as 'Bringing back account of, state as ascribed fact,  tell as news'.  That is, in my opinion,  precisely what McDowell has  done in this instance. While on  first blush, much of the detail  included in his account would  appear to be heartless and unnecessary, further consideration  leads me to conclude that he did  what he's paid to do; he told the  'whole' of the story, not only  what he is paid to do, but what  he was taught to do. He did it  Despicable article  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Editor, The Press:  I found your recent article in  The Press concerning the death  of Vern Elliott very biased and  insulting to say the least.  To say the man was a loner  and an alcoholic was nothing  but. sheer ignorance on your  part.  So what if Vern was a loner,  is it a crime to live by oneself?  Many of us live alone and enjoy  the solitude.  What difference does it make  whether or not he was alcoholic.  Many fine and upstanding  citizens of this community and  hundreds of. other communities  are alcoholic. .  Alcoholism is not a sin, nor a'  criminal act. Alcoholism is a(  disease that many people suffer  from. 5  Perhaps the driver of the  vehicle that killed Vern was also  alcoholic, that doesn't make  him a criminal, just a sick person who committed a criminal  act.  I think you people should do  a little more research and use  more intelligence before you  write any more despicable articles such as that one in the  future.  The Mariners' Restaurant  Enough is enough  Editor:  I was outraged by Mrs. God-  dard's unethical disclosure of  Alderman Collins' private  financial affairs as published in  The Press of December 5, 1989.  What right has Mrs. Goddard  to publicize, through the  venomous pen of McDowell,  any person's confidential  business affairs?  Does this portend a future  pattern of disclosure? If I  should be in the unfortunate  position of being tardy with my  taxes, can I look forward to seeing my name printed in The  Press?  Enough is enough - please,  let's end these vindictive attacks  on members of our community,  whether dead or alive.  Frank Braithwaite  More letters  on Page 23  ate  SEND A HAPPY  HOLIDAY BASKET.

While I can and do sympathize with Mr. Elliott's family  and friends in face of these  developments, I admire  McDowell's integrity.  He knew how these revelations would hurt and as well,  knew, how relevant these facts  were to the accident. Professionalism simply took over.  One must consider after all  that the driver might be our  daughter or our son or even,  God forbid, one of us.  Two things come to mind,  applause of professionalism is  one. All these facts will be aired,  if ever the case gets to court,  and I remind you court records  are a matter of public record,  widely reported.  Believe-you-me, compassion  is alive and well in our community but we are lacking a  dose of common sense if we  persist in defiling this able journalist.

(See story.) ���Ellen Fridi photo  of Japan where Tomakomai is  situated. Kunstler was recently  in Japan attending a Sister City  Symposium.  Oji Paper executives at Port  Mellon had originally suggested  Tomakomai as a twin city for  Gibsons, Kunstler told the  Coast News, but apparently it is  already matched with Napier,  New Zealand. Although Tomakomai is much larger than Gibsons with a population of  160,000, and is much more industrial, Kunstler said the suggestion had come because Oji  Paper founded its first mill in  Tomakomai in 1910 when it was  just a small town similar to  here.  "I visited with the mayor of  Tomakomai," Kunstler told  council at its December 5  meeting, "and had a very successful time. Although the city  is already twinned with Napier,  it was felt that closer ties between highschool students would  be advantageous to both  areas."  Kunstler told the Coast News  that the student exchange program is one of the principle interests in twinning cities.  Mrs. Atsuku Kinsuka, wife  of Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  Vice-President Makoto Kinzuka  and a native of Tomakomai,  Vas kind enough to come to the  Coast News office in Gibsons  with two other friends, to explain, in part, the importance of  the Ainu carvings presented to  the town.  The Ainu people, she said,  are the original settlers of the  Islands of Japan having immigrated southward from  Mongolia. It is believed, she  said, that they are related to the  Inuit people of North America  and their artwork, although different in many ways, carry with  it some similarities in style and  in the use of symbols.  A nature-oriented people, the  Ainu worship their god through  a reverence for Mother Earth  and her bounty, Mr. Kinsuku  said, and the figures presented  to Gibsons represent the Ainu  chief and his wife.  ^Ladies' Auxiliary to Branch 109, Gibsons-  Royal Canadian Legion  CHRISTMAS BAZAAR  Results of Door Prizes & Raffles Dec. 2nd, 1989  1st Door Prize Agnes Labonte  2nd Door Prize E.

In a letter to council from the  Coast News, an official complaint was lodged against  McDowell's "inability to  refrain from making his personal biases and preferences  perfectly clear not only in his  news reporting but in his actual  remarks and behaviour during  council meetings..."  Alderman Ken Collins told  council he was one who was  tired of the noises coming from  the press table and he pointed  out that at the November 28  council meeting, McDowell had  to be restrained from trying to  pull papers out of the Coast  News' reporter's hand.  "I'm. tired of his  (McDowell's) childish and unprofessional behaviour," Collins said.  Stating that the mayor had  the right under Roberts Rules of  Order to control undue noise in  the council chambers, Alderman John Reynolds added that  he, too, had been disturbed on  occasion by McDowell.  Strom said she wasn't aware  of the disturbances "at her end  of the table", but later used her  gavel in an attempt to control  McDowell when he was questioning Alderman Reynolds out  of turn.

NATIVE STUDIES  "The more we learn of each  other, the easier it will be to live  in harmony here on the Sunshine Coast."  The words were Ben Pierre's,  a Sechelt Band councillor, when  he spoke last Tuesday evening  at Cedar Grove School. The occasion was a showing of class  projects by Marilyn  Giesbrecht's Grade 4 students  that were done in their study of  the history of Canada's first  citizens on the Pacific Coast.  "I'm proud to take part this  evening," said Ben Pierre. He  went on to say that the Sechelt  people were now masters of  their destiny and "We now  want to re-affirm our own  culture with our children, and,  for one thing, begin to revive  our Native language with them.  Only a few of the elders speak  the language at the present  time."  Pupils had assembled model  longhouses from kits prepared  by Vic Bonaguro of Sunshine  Kitchens.  "I made a test kit or two that  I tried out on my son, who is in  this class, and then re-designed  them to eliminate the parts too  difficult for the youngsters.  Then I spent a good 12 hours in  my shop making up 27 kits for  the class. Kits that were suitable  to their skills," Bonaguro said.  The array of longhouses  stretching the width of the gym  attested to the suitability of the  kits. Totem pole models created  by the youngsters stood sentinel  before each of the longhouses.  Pupil posters adorned every  wall. Pupils read, told stories of  Native life of years ago to small  ,,,,parent groups, . Native,.. car-ggE,,.^  Arnold Jqnes, had a table of his,,,  ftbbls and some of his find;  carved totems on display:Y.YY'' t'  "I'm self-taught from study ���[.  and experience," he told a ques-.'}.'.  tioner. Some of his larger works  are to be seen among the ring of  huge carvings on the grounds -  outside the Band hall in Sechelt.  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum  provided a display of Native artifacts-flint arrowheads and  tools, woven blankets and cedar  bark clothing.  In appreciation of his contribution, the class presented  Vic Bonaguro with a thick file  of pupil letters of gratitude and  a small gift.  Principal James Davidson  and teacher Marilyn Giesbrecht  had a long list of contributors to  thank for helping the class,  among them parents Bruce Forsyth of the District Resource  centre, and David Tattrie.  LANGDALE SCHOOL  The school has two or three  large jars of pennies collected to  donate towards the re-building  of a community library gravely  damaged in the recent earthquake in the San Francisco  region.  The gift will say thanks to the  Ralph Jaeck, Jr. family who  live in the town where the  library was damaged. And the  thanks is for the annual donation of, books that the Jaeck  family in California makes to  Langdale school in memory of  Mr. Jaeck's father.

He said Chapman Creek is  the only dependable, readily  available water supply for the  area's rapidly increasing  population.  "In our view," explained  Bartley, "this area, being  Crown land, belongs to all the  people and we, as the primary  users of these resources, feel our  local elected officials, namely  the SCRD, should make the  final decision as to what can or  cannot take place in this area."  Bartley went on to explain  that   there  has  already  been  some slippage and a mud slide  into the headwaters of Gray  Creek, caused by recent road  building in the area, "and we  feel sure that this is an indication of what is to be expected if  the logging adjacent to the  Chapman Creek watershed is  allowed to proceed."  Another meeting on the  future of the Tetrahedron  Plateau is scheduled for  February 14 at the forestry office, located at the end of Field  Road near Wilson Creek.  Jackson Brothers' Chris Ort-  ner assured the meeting that  there would be no logging or  road building activity in the area  before next June.

This often hated  and cursed tree is considered to  be a tough weed by some. But  the good old alder is a healer to  our often ravaged land. On a  recently cleared or burned area,  it quickly comes to life soon  after the fireweed.  It grows at an amazing speed,  is very tough and almost impossible to pull out of the  ground if over a foot high. The  noble alder shades and protects  the soon to grow fir, spruce,  hemlock and cedar seedlings  that will eventually take oy^the^  , forest stand when the alderinits  LEGION NOTES  Due to holiday interruptions,  there will be no smorgasbord  dinners on December 22 and 29.

They might  also worry, he said, about missing out on a restructured Pender  Harbour municipality 20 years  down the road.  But he said three events in the  last three weeks, all related to  lack of local control over logg  ing and environmental concerns  in the area, "underscored the  wisdom of Director Dixon."  Wilson told the Coast News  he supported re-alignment in  order to promote the use of the  Sechelt Inlet Study as an Official Community Plan.  District of Sechelt representative Bob Wilson abstained  from voting on the issue  because, he later told the Coast  News, Sechelt Council is interested in the possibility of extending the town's boundaries  and incorporating a portion of  AreaC.

Coast News, December 11,1989  by Caryl Worden  Sechelt's Boulevard will  become a one-way street with  no parking allowed in an attempt to deter 'social pollution',  Sechelt District Council voted at  its regular meeting December 6.  An ad hoc committee was set  up earlier this fall in a response  to area residents' complaints of  late night parties and disruptive  vehicle traffic along the waterfront and in Snickett Park. The  committee's recommendations  originaiiy included bringing  Ocean Avenue up to standards  and improving the lane at a  total cost of $49,852.  Alderman Dave Wells called  this a "bandage solution".  "If I was sure this recommendation would work and solve all  the problems, I'd unhesitatingly  spend $50,000," Wells said.  "However, I'm not convinced  that changing the streets will  alleviate the problem of vandalism and rowdyism."  Alderman Bob Wilson agreed  saying "the problem is one of  enforcement    and    certainly  nothing else."  After heated debate over the  cost of the proposal, Alderman  Doug Reid suggested doing the  plan in phases. "Enforcement  really has to go hand-in-hand  with this, but it (the recommendation) goes a long way as a  deterrence factor," Reid said.  The amended traffic regulations for the area will make the  Boulevard one-way, going west  from Trail to Ocean Avenue,  and the lane between Teredo  and the Boulevard will be oneway going east. As well, the  Boulevard will be blocked off  west of Ocean Avenue, with 'no  parking' signs installed on the  north side.  The no parking aspect of the  proposal bothered Alderman  Joyce Kolibas, despite the  assurance of Alderman Michael  Shanks - who was chairman of  the ad hoc group - that the new  rules would be on a trial basis  only.  "I hope we have our fireproof jackets on," Wilson  replied, "because the Hackett  Park (issue) is going to look  gawd awful small in comparison."  y**\  \  r.  }  V  Mixed greeting  for Landing  revitalization  by Ellen Frith  The    priorities    for    the  revitalization  of the  Landing  JOHN ENEVOLDSON WEE-DING  SUPPLIES LTD. 886-9159  Hwy. 101 - Gibsons (Behind Peninsula Transport)  850  PRO-LINE   110V "Sidewinder  M1G 100     Reg. $974.70  TIGER TORCH  & HOSES  Sale  $4786  Regulator  *3885  Reg. $57.86  SIP ELECTRIC    *_,���An  WELDING KIT    s1 98��  115V "Handyman'^  Reg. $245.00  .-,���"?b   ^^Ss^  PROLINE  M1G 70  115V  Wire Welder  "Crickett"  Reg. $650.70  599  00  AUTO PROPANE  OPEN:       Mon.-Fri.

The list was received by Gibsons Council at its December 5  meeting in a letter sent subsequent to a meeting of the  association's executives with .  Clerk Administrator Lorraine  Goddard.  Misinterpreting the letter as a  demand for more money from  the town, Alderman Gerry Dixon told council, "More money  has been spent on this group  than on any other. I think it is  time groups like this come forward to support the town."  Goddard pointed out that the  association is willing to pay for  the proposed improvements  through taxation and that it was  all part of a continuation of the  downtown revitalization plan.  The merchant group will be  coming back to council with a  proposal, she said.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  added that while the upper town  is the centre for regional shopping, "the downtown serves as a  Mecca for the tourists. Everybody wins when money is spent  there."

An organizational meeting is  being held Tuesday, December  12 at 7:30 pm at the Sunshines  Coast Regional District officesr  located at the corner of Wharf  Road and Teredo ������ Street irV  Sechelt.  Marshall, who has built arid  flown model aircraft for 20;  years, and is also a maker of  aviation videos, says there are  numerous benefits to forming a  club for the craft and sport of  model airplanes.  He says 20 people have so far  expressed interest in such a club  since he recently put an ad on  the local cable television network.  As for the costs of the sport,  the sky's the limit, Marshall  says, with some models costing  as much as $1500. "If you don't  have the proper directions you  can write it off in a minute,"  Marshall says.  The fledgling club needs a  wide-open space for its activities, preferably somewhere  near Sechelt, in an area where  some noise won't be a problem,  Marshall explains.  v.

This characteristic lends to its charm but  frustrates emergency services  people when they have to respond to a call for help.  "Your house is on fire?  Where is it?"  "It's so-and-so's old place,  you know, down by Whatche  MacCallim's dock."  "Are your house numbers  posted on the road where we  can see them?"  "Um, gee, I never got around  to that..."

The several stipulations incorporated into the original motion  proposed by Alderman John  Reynolds at council's  November 21 meeting remained  intact except for permission  from the town to use the old  Fire Hall on Gower Point  Road.  Section One of the original  motion, which read: "up to one  third of the lands for a nonprofit maritime museum open  to the public", was deleted and  that issue was dealt with by  council separately and then  tabled to enable the SCMHS  time to confer with the curators  of the Pioneer Museum over a  possible combining of the two  museums.  SCMHS Project Coordinator  Joe Belanger later told the  Coast News the Society has  already approached curator  Tarn Johnson of the Pioneer  Museum to discuss an  amalgamation of that museum  with a maritime museum "to  the best advantage of them  both".  "It is still in discussion,"  Belanger said, "and nothing is  resolved but it is very, very progressive."  As for the next step in acquiring the lease for the waterfront  land, the SCMHS is to draw up  a contract at its own expense to  be reviewed by council and the  town's legal advisors. When  and if it is satisfactory to all parties, an agreement will be  drafted and incorporated into a  by-law to be passed by council.  Belanger told the Coast News  a contract could be ready by this  week.  There was some confusion at  the council meeting before the  motion was passed, when  Mayor Diane Strom introduced  a second report against the  SCMHS proposal from Town  Planner Rob Buchan after the  motion was already on the table  and being discussed. It was a  report Buchan wrote after the  November 28 public meeting in  regard to the proposal.  Alderman Reynolds told  council he was "disappointed"  the report "came at the 11th  hour", and therefore that it was  too late to be reviewed. He was  later accused in question period  by Robert Maxwell of "ignoring the town planner's reports".  "The advice of the planner,  who receives a salary commensurate with his ability, is completely ignored," Maxwell said.  Reynolds replied that he had.  "never received a report that  has been ignored." He later told  the Coast News: "Quite clearly,  I don't ignore reports. I study  them and then make my own independent decision."  Maxwell also questioned  Alderman Ken Collins as to  why, as was in the case of the  theatre project, council was not  asking   for   "firm,   financial  ���John Burnside photo  The narrow roads of the Sunshine Coast struck again last week when the lack of a shoulder on North  Road pulled this oil truck off the road last Tuesday. The truck had to be unloaded before it could be  pulled out of the ditch.  .viability" from the SCMHS.  Collins replied that unlike the  theatre project which had been  going to permanently change  the landscape, the SCMHS was  "simply going to park on some  space for a while."

A small but enthusiastic  group turned out to discuss the  college's recently released five-  year plan on missions and  values with board members,  staff and administrators from  ,.   North Vancouver.  % Roberts Creek resident Sandy  McBride suggested that many  people are intimidated by the  idea of post-secondary education and so aren't aware of what  the college has to offer.  "Have you thought of  broader community use?" she  asked of Capilano College  President Doug Jardine. "Open  the doors to other events which  would bring people from all  walks of life through the doors,  then they'd see that other things  happen here."  Other suggestions included  expanding the correspondence  courses, proceeding with Elder  College, and providing package  programs for complete one-year  university transfer either by coordinating classes in intensive  two-day sessions in North Vancouver, or by extending the one-  year program here over two or  three years.  Jardine said the board is open  to ideas for new courses, if  enough students can be  guaranteed to take it. "Networks of people with common  interests should approach the  college, perhaps even having an  expert in their midst to teach the  course, or the college could go  about finding a teacher." In  general, at least eight students  are needed to allow a course to  go ahead, he added.  Some of the projects the college hopes to take into the community include an informal session on 'everything you're  afraid to ask about post-  secondary education', which  would let people know what  courses and services are offered;  and a parent/teen information  night held in the high schools  describing post-secondary options at all the colleges and  universities.

Herbert Emerson Wilson  The ill-timed business of the  unauthorized mailing attempt  will cost Herb Wilson almost  two and a half more years in  San Quentin Prison. He is  fanatically observant of the  rules during this time, and there  are no further incidents.  Wilson continues to work at  the Prison Hospital. Here, in  the final years of his long term,  he meets a fellow Canadian  named Donald Holliday. Holli-  day, a former reporter on a  Toronto newspaper, expresses  interest in Wilson's writing.  Another jailhouse friendship  develops.  Holliday, who is to be freed  before Wilson, agrees to act as  his agent and attempts to sell  some of his manuscripts. After  Holliday is deported to Canada,  the two men keep in touch by  letter. The ex-reporter claims to  be stirring up editorial interest  in the books.  Wilson, happy with the arrangement, begins to fantasize a  successful future on the outside.  The prospect makes the remainder of his sentence pass  much easier.  It is halfway through 1935 ���  June 3 to be exact ��� when  Herb Wilson finally receives  word that his application for  parole has been granted. The  news comes without warning at  5 am when the night guard  wakes him with heartening information that he is going  home.  Wilson can hardly believe it.  After 12 long years he is going  to be a free man again. In a  daze he dresses, gathers up his  effects, including the numerous  manuscripts, and follows the  guard to the 'dressing-out'  room.  Here Wilson dons the first  civilian suit he has worn for well  over a decade. The suit is a  'joint front' - made by convict  tailors and not particularly  stylish or well-fitting. But, to  Wilson, it seems like the finest  garment from Bond Street.  In accordance with prison  regulations, Herb Wilson is  once again fingerprinted and  photographed for the San  Quentin files. Then the number  ��� 37983 ��� which has been his  official designation for the past  12 years, is consigned to inactive  status. Wilson's confiscated  identity has been handed back  to him. Jubilant, he joins  several other prisoners who are  also waiting for release and  deportation.

Students  of Denise O'Brien's ballet classes pirouetted and arabesqued for a small, but appreciative audience.  Co-operation urged on theatre  by Jay Pomfret  I asked Ted Price, the director of Driftwood Players' most  recent performance, 'The Diviners', what is most needed in  introducing a new theatre to a  small community?  Ted has directed community  theatre all over BC and parts of  Alberta for the past four years.  Before taking on theatre and  film full time he taught school  in Vancouver. He's an excellent  director and one of the finest  managers of people I've ever  known.  His response to my question  was for any group to succeed in  building a theatre up it must set  a mandate.  I thought to myself 'mandate'? I'll make like I understand and grab a dictionary at  first chance.  Mandate, - [L. mandatum,  an order (manus, hand; dare, to  give)], an order of a magistrate;  authority given to a person to  act in the name of another; - V.  (mandat), to entrust the government of one country to another.  That Ted, he's got quite the  vocabulary.  I'd like to say a few words  about the future of theatre on  our Coast and it deals with the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project (GLTP) group and the new  Gibsons Landing Heritage  Theatre (GLHT) group.  A number of reasons are apparently the cause of these two  groups not being able to merge.  It has been the wish of Fred Inglis* heritage group to take on  the Women's Institute (WI) hall  on their own without assistance  from the GLTP bunch. Both individuals represent president  positions of the above groups.  The GLTP group launched a  fund-raising campaign four  years ago for a new theatre in  the lower village. It hasn't made  it and appears it won't.  A '��� letter of suggestion was  presented to the Heritage group  and the town council that funds  raised by the GLTP be transferred tb the WI hall proposal set  up by Fred Inglis.  Fred, a member of the  Heritage Society got word of  the possible demolition of the  structure upon School District  46's requirement of a new  maintenance facility.  He, stepped forward himself  and said, "Wait, this building  has a history and should be  restored for community use."  Fred Inglis has also laboured  intensivey for Sun-Coast  Players in past years and knows  how: desperately needed a  theatre is to our local talents.  From hearsay one way or  another I feel the Heritage  jgroup's interest is local community attention which is a  good;clean principal motive.  The GLTP has been the  brunt of many a news story during the past few years.  ; It seems the closer they got to  their goal of landing the big wad  from; GO BC arid the federal  government, the more controversy arose about the placement' of the structure. Did we  need a theatre? Could money be  better spent elsewhere?  The Heritage group has the  possibility of receiving a  $60,000 grant from the BC  Heritage Society for the  upgrading of the WI Hall. To  date I know of no other funds  raised by the GLHT.  The GLTP has an approximate $100 to $120,000 in combined funds and pledges to its  credit after four years of fund-  raising. To not combine some  $160 to $180,000 to the old girl  at the top of school road seems  unbelievably ludicrous to me.  Fred, $60,000 will evaporate  in that hall when it comes to a  public structure under present  code regulations. With tripling  that number the building may  begin to materialize and who  knows maybe even open its  doors again.  There's a million ways to  fund-raise but it takes a lot of  work that sometimes will tend  to wear people down. Dances  for example are a popular way.  I've been involved with 40 or so  over the last 15 years of living  here. I can frankly say that the  only ones that made consistent  money were rugby scrums and  somehow I don't see the likes of  either party attending.  A successful dance or any  other fund-raiser should make a  $1000 or they are not worth the  time or energy.  Driftwood Players just put  on a dance and it lost money.  To match $180,000 you'll have  a tremendous amount of work  ahead of you. Look how long it  took the GLTP.  This building should be utilized in the near future and instead  of shunning the proposed  amalgamation both groups  should blow off all the ac  cumulating dust that's seriously  beginning to cake all over the  place.  The village has presented a  gift and it'll expect proper  management which doesn't  come from low budget ideas.  The building will have to pay  for itself or it won't work.  Fred's idea is a marvellous  discovery for the Coast. What  he and Rai should understand is  that neither one of them will  ever own the building. It will be  owned by everyone who walks  through its doors.  In the likelihood of conflict  of interest both parties will undoubtedly have different opinions but if they elect a person  amongst themselves who can  push a mandate into production  we'll all be a lot further ahead.  Garden reminders for  December and January. Welcome to all newcomers,  especially gardeners, to the Sunshine Coast. Now is the time to  clean garden tools; oil handles  with linseed oil to preserve the  wood, and coat the metal surfaces with oil to stop rusting.  Also, clean and service your  power equipment; clean out ditches, eavestroughs, down  spouts, catch basins, and  culverts. Continue doing a  general cleanup of weeds,  leaves, debris, dead stems and  prunings until the end of  season.  Feed the wild birds.  If it snows, remove all but an  inch or two of snow from  shrubs and tree branches - use  urea to melt snow on paths and  driveways, instead of salt.  Watch for emerging bulbs when  cultivating and weed borders.  Check stored gladiolus  corms, dahlia and begonia  tubers, canna and call a lilies,  and other stored plant material  for rot, disease, or insect problems. Pot iip some oxalis  ranunculus and anemonies for  indoor winter colour.  Cut Christmas trees require a  stand with a water holder, or  bucket with rocks to hold tree in  place, then filled with water.  A living tree is an investment  in landscape beauty, and  reasonable. Place tree in a water  tight container that will take a  good saucer, soak root ball  thoroughly, and keep moist.  Check ball daily - it may require  two quarts to a gallon of water  every day.  The Gibsons Garden Club  members will enjoy a Christmas  lunch at Andy's Restaurant this  year on December 17. The next  meeting will be February 1990.  Seasonal Greetings to everyone.

I WE2QER  _���_-.���������JillUIL���.JH  ^^^^^3Sl^Si^^^^^^M  Curling season approaches  by Harry Turner  The curling season is quickly  approaching the halfway point  as we prepare for our annual  Christmas break. Curling will  finish on Tuesday, December 19  when we will break for two  weeks. League play will resume  again on Tuesday, January 2.  The season has been a very  enjoyable one for me. It has  been an especially short year  because of the late start due to  the extended warm season and  in my case, I had to lay off an  additional four weeks due to a  bad knee.  I am looking forward to  making up for that in the second half, a session that I am  sure will bring all of us 10 or  more new exciting games.  Saturday night, the  Swanson's Spiel took place. We  hope a good time was had by all  the curlers. Thanks go to Chopper for the cooking of the meal  and thanks also to the club  members who volunteered their  time to do the cleanup duties  and look after the club. A club  that can get out so many willing  volunteers is made up of a very  special bunch of people.  Monday, December 18 is the  Ladies Christmas party. They  need a few ladies, so anyone  who would like to come out on  Monday afternoon and watch,  or join them in a fun game, is  very welcome. Curling starts at  noon.  Now to bring you up to date  on the present leaders. Monday  Mens, Ron Baba; Monday Ladies, Joan Dexter with three  teams close on her heels; Tuesday Ladies, leader unknown;  Wednesday Mixed, Penonzek  and Balon, tied; Thursday  Mens, Carl Anderson; Friday  Mixed, Hill and Nelson in a tie;  Seniors, Jim Richmond.  I am going to take a rest over  the holidays so I would like to  Coast Soccer  by Jim Brown  All but one game was cancelled on Saturday, December 2.  The only game that was played  was in the 12 and 13-year-old  age group. In that game Sechelt  Yellows beat the Gibsons Blues  and although I forgot the score,  the standings were updated properly.  In the Over 30 soccer there  were two games played. In the  first game Wakefield defeated  Sliammon by a score of 5 to 3.  In the second game the  Lighthouse Keepers played  brilliantly (I have to play this  victory up because rarely does  the ball go where we want it to  but in this game it did) by  beating the Sechelt Chiefs by a  score of 5 to 2. And to show  you what kind of a sporting  team we are, we scored the  Chiefs second on ourselves.  But   it   was   a   nice   goal  anyway.

The Buccaneers led 4 to 2 at  the end of the first period and 5  to 4 going into the third.  Wakefield got goals from  Tom Poulton, Dave Shindle,  Kelly Cousins, Fred Hanson,  Mike Yarrow and Claude  Charleton, to end up winning 8  to 5. Buccaneers goal scorers  were John Hart, Chris Strong,  Chris Wygard, Jerry Mercer  and Randy Marlow.  The Creek won a big game by  knocking over the Buccaneers 7  to 4. Main man for the Creek  was Dave Mewhort with the hat  trick, Bob Blake, Jim Benger,  Pat Taylor and Al Gradasek.  Goals for the Buccaneers were  scored by Mike Gibson, Terry  Mercer, Chris Strong and Scott  Patton.  Gibsons B&D Kings and  Gillians played to a 7 to 7 draw.  Gilligans goals were scored by  Wade Fisher, Jason Sachuck,  Gord Clayton, Chuck Storvold  and Ryan Paul. Kings goals  were scored by Dave Brackett,  Scotty Thornsteinson, Pete  Hautala, Shawn Longman and  Clay Munson.

The two debatable points  are whether the. team should  consist of players who are 'all  stars' at their position but have  never played together and if  eligible players should be required to meet certain fitness  standards.  The 1988 Winter Olympics  included curling as a demonstration sport and both a ladies  and a mens team had to be  chosen to represent Canada. It  was decided that two eight team  playoffs (one for men and one  for women) would be organized  the year prior to the Olympics.  Because these all star teams  did not fare as well as the 'pat'  teams, most curlers feel that  choosing teams in this manner is  not a good idea. Many feel that  there is a greater need for com-  patability in a sport like curling,  that in, say hockey or basketball.  Items on fitness training for  curlers found their way into  headlines when one somewhat  overweight male curler complained about the required  fitness levels for the Olympic  tryouts.  The fact is, however, that a  fit curler is more likely to be  able to withstand the pressures  of a tough international competition. This factor in player  selection may be downplayed in  the future, while it may be concentrated on during training  and preparations for an event.  All these ideas are being considered in BC as team selections  will soon be made to obtain  rinks to compete in the 1991  Canada Winter Games.  os s CA*  &  -��k&-  Now offering 4WD Kubota tractor service, small front  loader & backhoe.

The Coast Pups  played a Port Moody team to a  scoreless draw, thanks in part to  strong goaltending by Dustin  Dubois.  The boys and their parents  were entertained in their locker  room by Darrel Stanley, who  signed many autographs. It was  a time they won't soon forget.  Here are recent Sunshine  Coast Minor Hockey League  (SCMHA) results: In the Atoms  Division the Devils edged the  Wings 3 to 2. Devils goals came  from Robert Trousdell and  Nathen DeBoer with R. Beau-  pre and Ryan Dempster contributing assists for the winners.  Theodore Desta and Tyler  Wilson scored goals for a losing  cause with Ryan Westman adding an assist.  In another matchup between  the two teams Jeremy Ruck  tallied four goals to lead his  Devils to an 8 to 3 victory over  the Wings. Brook Hamilton  and Ray Blake scored singles  while Terry Gray notched two  goals. Scoring for the Wings  were Curtis Munson, Scott  Sutherland and Calvin Steele.  In Pee Wee Division action  December 1, the Flames beat  the Canucks 6 to 3, helped by a  Michael Yates hat trick, two  goals from Paul Sheridan and a  single from Chemus Gaudry.  On December 2 the Sechelt  Hawks Pee Wees defeated  Powell River Legion 4 to 2. For  the winners Trent Turner tallied  a pair while Jack Darney, Matt  Fawcus, Alex Hamilton, Chris  Harm and Matt Radymski  scored a goal each.  The Sechelt Flames downed  Powell River Legion 5 to 3 with  goals coming from Matt Fawcus, Tige Pollock, Jesse Paquin,  Tyler Gray, Jack Darney,  Shawn Hayne, Ben Devitt and  Silas White.  Other Pee Wee games:  Canucks 6, Hawks 4. Canucks  goals by Paul Sheridan, Michael  Yates, Nathan Rowan, Matt  Fawcus and Paul Krasnikoff.  Sechelt Hawks 3, West Vancouver 1. Hawks goals by Trent  Turner and Shawn Haime with  assists from Jeremy Howden  and Alex Hamilton.  The Bantams invited a team  up from Portland with the  Sechelt Winter Hawks losing 8  to 6 with Kurt Savage, Chad  Lamarche, Brad Wingfield and  Dean Stockwell scoring for the  local squad.  The Winter Hawks fared better in a second contest, beating  the Portland visitors 10 to 7.  The Bantams are playing Seattle  in the New Year and the match  should be a good one. The Bantams would like to thank Pete  Hansen and Ray Stockwell for  their contributions to the team.  In the recent SCMHA raffle  draw the winning tickets were  drawn by Pup player Cameron  Steele. Sechelt's Bill Stockwell  won the boat and motor first  prize; S. Duff of Sechelt won  the trip for two to the Pan  Pacific; and the $100 third prize  went to Fred Brooks.  The proceeds will go toward  the purchase of hockey equipment. Thanks to all those who  supported the raffle.  Dog warning  by Dave Fraser  Letting your dog run at large  could be an expensive proposition, if a recent court case is any  indication. A dog owner was  fined $150 in Sechelt Provincial  Court, December 5, for the offence under a one-and-a-half  year-old Sunshine Coast  Regional District by-law.  The offence took place last  summer in the vicinity of Fair-  view Road (off Pratt) near Gibsons. A dog, which had a bad  reputation for chasing domestic  livestock and mauling smaller  dogs, was blamed for killing  several rabbits in the area.  In most cases an application  would be made by local authorities to destroy the dog, says  Stan Jones, who was working as  a relief by-law enforcement officer at the time of the offence.  Jones says the Livestock Protection Act allows people to  shoot dogs in pursuit of their  domestic livestock if found on  their property. "In most cases  they shoot the dogs, dig a hole  and bury them," Jones says,  "because they want to avoid  hard feelings with neighbours."  Tougher laws are also in effect for muzzling dogs that have  a reputation for viciousness,  and to ensure all dogs are licensed.

Coast News, December 11,1989  Coast stands prepared  by Rose Nicholson  A computerised Emergency  Response Plan (ERP) is now in  place to deal with any disasters  that might occur on the Sunshine Coast.  On December 7 a 'table top'  practise session was held at the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) office in  Sechelt to test the plan.  The computerised plan allows  the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) team to access a  variety of possible disaster  situations such as earthquakes,  floods, fires or highway accidents and provides an organized method of dealing with the  situation, it co-ordinates all activities of the various agencies  responsible for rescue operations,   fire   departments,   am  bulance, hospital, RCMP, BC  Hydro, BC Telephone, Emergency Social Services, the  School District and so on.  In the event of a disaster, the  EOC Emergency Executive,  presently consisting of SCRD  Director Brett McGillivray,  Gibsons Alderman Lilian  Kunstler and Sechelt Alderman  Bob Wilson, would set up the  EDC centre at the SCRD office,  with an alternate location at  Chatelech High School if the  Regional District office became  unusable.  The EOC, staffed by a team  made up of representatives  from all agencies, would act as a  headquarters to direct the activities of rescue workers.  The simulated disaster in last  week's exercise was based on an  actual flooding incident that oc-  r  p  USED BUILDING SUPPLIES  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc.  P & B USED BUILDING MATERIALS  11947 Tannery Rd., Surrey  MONDAY-SATURDAY S88-1311  We also buy used building materials  Sunshine Coast Archery  ARCHEBY SUPPLIES  Interested in bowhunbing or target archery?

In the practise session, supposedly several days of heavy  rain and high winds had caused  a washout of an old log jam in a  creek above the highway iri  Roberts Creek.  The sudden release of a large  quantity of water flooded  several homes and the occupants had to be evacuated.  Washouts on the highway and  the Lower Road in effect cut the  Coast in half, and a tanker  truck overturned on the  highway. BC Hydro and BC  Telephone lines were down, cutting communication between  upper and lower ends of the  Coast. Heavy fog following the  rain made it impossible to use  planes or helicopters.  "This is not a major disaster  compared with an earthquake"  said PEP Co-ordinator Art  McPhee, "but we want to start  at a reasonable level so we can  understand who's doing what."  The Sunshine Coast is  basically organized along  Highway 101, with the main  power, telephone and water  lines following^- the road.  Numerous bridges and culverts  are sensitive to 'flooding, and  the whole area is vulnerable to  any situation that occurs on the  highway.  Access to the hospital, to ambulance or firefighting services,  and communications between  rescue agencies would all be affected by any disaster on 101.  In the discussions revolving  around the December 7 'disaster' communication emerged as  the key word. .'..;���..,..'  "Communications always,  without fail, become part of the  problem" commented McPhee;  "It's essential that when we say  so-and-so will know, we have to  know how that person will  know."  Bill Moore, Emergency Com-  municatons Officer, discussed  the alternate plan that has been  set up to co-ordinate the existing  radio communications systems  that are presently used by the  RCMP, fire departments,^ ambulance, BC Hydro, BC Telephone and amateur ^raqfep,  operators.  At the moment, the main gap- ���_  in this plan is the need for aux- ��� ;.,  iliary electric power that could 'i y  be used if the regular BC Hydro f. t  power was not available. 'i  Vern Lofstrom, of BC Tele-   %  phone, urged that a telephone   Y  technician be part of the EOC   |Y:  team. "These men are trained in  communication"   he   said.  . "They can move lines around to  provide   temporary   connec-    .'  tions."  Sargeant Ed Hill of the Gib-    V  sons detachment of the RCMP  outlined the part that the police  play in any disaster.  "Ninety per cent of all initial  disaster calls go to the RCMP"  ihe said.  Hill went on to say that the  police are equipped to handle  disaster situations but they still  have to be able to deal with  regular police work. Under  those conditions, auxiliary  police can be used, and crews  from other agencies like BC  Hydro can be called on.  Shelter and identification of  people displaced by a disaster is  always a major consideration.  Judy Walls of Emergency Social  Services reported that tentative  plans call for housing of disaster  victims in the gyms of the three  high schools on the Coast.  Last week's 'Disaster' fortunately happened only on  paper (and computer). A few  gaps and inconsistencies came  to light but that's what practice  sessions are all about.  Police  SECHELT RCMP  On December 6 Pender Harbour Marine in Pender Harbour  reported a break-in. A small  Mercury outboard motor was  stolen.  On December 4 the Sechelt  Legion reported a break and  enter.
