NOON, SEPTEMBER 22, DAVIS BAY.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  To Gibsons' dismay  Sewer smell still  a  by Ellen Frith  Inspite of the ongoing improvements to Gibsons sewage  treatment plant over the last  year or so, a deep breath around  that area of the town will still  carry to the nose a pong of the  malodorous soup being processed on the premises. The  Iwi^jieighbours are,complaining, y^  "People tell me about;.the  smell all the time," Gibsons  Alderman Gerry Dixon told the  Coast News, so last Thursday  he decided to tour the facilities  again to determine if it was any  particular function of the plant  causing the trouble. The Coast  YNews went with him.  \\   Sewage   Treatment   Plant  !; Manager Greg Foss said he was  Y aware of the continuing com-  Yplaints in regards to the smell  ��� *and said the weather had a lot to  Ydo with it.  Y "As soon as it starts to rain  : *and gets colder," he said, "peo-  Yple will no longer be able to  >smell the plant, but there isn't a  sewage treatment plant anywhere that is completely  odourless."  i  In May, 1988, Gibsons finally  thought it had determined the  reason for the odours coming  from its sewage treatment plant  and had come up with a proposed solution to improve the situation with the assistance of consultants Dayton and Knight.  According to then Public  Works   Superintendent  JSkip.  system at that time was it did  not get hot enough in the  digesters.  The way the system works,  Reeves said, is that all the  sewage is pumped into a huge  tank called a digester and a  natural process takes place  which breaks down any organic  material into harmless (and  odourless) substances.  Heat is required for this process to work properly and the  natural interaction of sewage  can apparently generate its own  heat. But the problem with Gibsons sewage is it has too much  water in it and does not come  up to temperature. Because of  this, in the past, the digester did  not digest properly and it  smelled.  Many of those earlier problems have been taken care of,  Foss said, and yet, on certain  days when the wind blows down  towards the town, there continues to be unpleasant odours;  it's hydrogen sulphide gas to be  exact, Foss said, which is  created by sewage.  The town has continued to  : the unpleasant gases from time  to time in small pockets around  : the plant but not necessarily in  the Blue Dome where the raw  % sewage comes in for processing.  |    On a typical day, if it's a  | rainy one, 350,000 gallons of  i sewage flows into the plant.  f During sunnier times, such as  Slast Thursday, there is around  make **lots of improveiiiiert&'^%^ cent  Foss said, including insulating      "'" --��--*- --_���--*- ..i*_ -���a ...  the two digesters and ventilating  them into the ground through  perforated culverts surrounded  by gravel and wood chips to absorb any smells.  And in the "Blue Dome",  which houses the tanks where  the sewage solids are separated  and prepared for the digesters,  air from the air lift system  which acts to continually turn  the sludge over, is bubbled  through eucalyptus oil to further mask any odours.  The result is that, in the Blue  Dome at least, "All you can  smell is the eucalyptus oil,"  Dixon said, "and you can certainly smell that!"  Both Dixon and this reporter,  though, could definitely smell  ofr. yvhicti Is ;s6fidvtKe:'-rest:'.ls"  basically water.   ,  "This discrepancy between  wet days and sunny ones shows  there are leaks in the system,"  Dixon said. He said the plant  should never have been placed  where it is. "It's in the wrong  place."  In the Blue Dome, the sewage  flows through tanks where it is  separated and treated and while  the solid sludge is passed into  the digesters for pasteurization,  the remaining water passes from  the aeration tank to a trickling  filter, tp a secondary clarifier  and is finally flushed away into  the sea, the outlet for which is  213 metres out and 36.5 metres  deep near Gospel Rock.

In a speech to the Sechelt  Chamber   of  Commerce  last  week, Mackenzie MLA Harold  Long addressed three issues of  concern to the Sunshine Coast:  the natural gas pipeline, the  -long awaited Gibsons bypass  and proposed introduction of  "'super ferries' on the Horseshoe  -Bay to,Langdale run.  \  Recent protests that the route  jpf the proposed gas pipeline  :^hrough the watershed of the  ���Greater   Vancouver   Regional  ���District (GVRD) will diminish'  -the quality of the water do not  ^make much sense in view of the  Cextensiye logging presently per-  :mitted in the area, Long said;  ���"It's ludicrous that the mayors  ���of Vancouver and the GVRD  'are blocking a project that is so  Cvital to the Sunshine Coast and  iVancouver Island."  ,:;_' Long went on to say that  ; 120,000 cubic metres of logs  >were taken out of the watersheds last year.  .   "What they're telling us," he  said, "is that it's okay to go into  the environment and put roads  in and log if we're making  money. If I see this project bogging down, I'm going to the  GVRD with my dog and pony  show, as I put it, and get more  publicity for this area.  "It's time for people to  realize that there's more to the  province than the Lower  Mainland."  As for the long awaited Gibsons bypass, that should be  completed by late 1991 or early  1992, Long said, and the project  will go to tender as soon as land  acquisition and engineering are  completed.  Long went on to say the other  major highway project on the  Sunshine Coast is the upgrading  of Highway 101 from Secret  Cove to Earls Cove. The work  in the Secret Cove area should  be completed by early next year.  The work will then proceed in  segments on up to Earls Cove.  "There has been criticism  that we're not going fast  enough," Long said, "but  there's one thing we have to  watch. If we use local people  with local equipment we hold  the economy in the area.  "They buy parts and fuel  here and they deal in the community. We could bring in a big  construction company and on a  flash construction project  finish the highway and get it  over with. But it wouldn't add  anything to the economy of the  area.

"Prior to the logging four  years ago we had clear, cool,  constant water," says Robbie  Petraschuk. "Our water is now  down to a trickle - even after a  wet summer."  Petraschuk says her family  and a neighbour met witn Terminal Forest Products administrative forester John  Clarke to protest the clear cut  logging of the Haslam Lake  watershed and the spraying of  the herbicide, Vision, in the  Heid Creek watershed area,  from which the Petraschuks and  two other families get their  water supply.  No one from Terminal Forest  Products could be reached for  comment when contacted by the  Coast News at presstime Saturday.  "We are protesting the logging of all watershed areas," says  Petraschuk. "We would like to  warn all residents on the Sunshine Coast of what is happening to our water. It could  possibly happen to theirs."  Petraschuk, who has lived in  the area for 27 years and holds a  water licence for the creek, says  her family came to an agreement with Clarke about spraying boundaries.  She says Clarke was "very  reasonable" during the meeting  and agreed to a 100 metre buf-  Please turn to page 10  Politicians Return  UBCM seen  informative'  by EUen Frith  The local Sunshine Coast  politicians returned from last  week's Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) 86th  Annual Convention in Penticton praising the gathering.  With comments such as,  "good convention", "very informative" and "it went exceptionally well", most of the officials attending from the Town  of Gibsons, the District of  Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) felt  their four-day meeting with  close to 1700 other BC mayors  and municipal officials was time  well spent. And they also felt a  number of important issues had  been dealt with although  perhaps not all were resolved to  everybody's complete satisfaction.  Sixteen provincial and federal  government departments set up  temporary offices around the  convention site which made it  possible for SCRD members to  meet with the relevant provincial government politicians over  the issue of the proposed  Tetrahedron Wilderness Park  for example.  The SCRD used the opportunity, Area A Director Gordon  Wilson said, to present the  government with a proposal for  the alpine areas of Mount  Steele, Rainy Mountain and  Tetrahedron and Panther Peaks  to be designated as a wilderness  park. It is also hoped the land  around Lakes Batchelor, Edwards and McNair can be saved  for recreational use.  "It was decided at the convention," Wilson told the Coast  News, "that all sides will sit  down. The government has accommodated us in virtually all  areas and were extremely  positive."  Jackson Brothers, who is  already prepared for logging in  the lake areas, is one of the sides  to be consulted, Wilson said,  but he said he was optimistic  something could be worked out.  Area E Director Jim Gurney  agreed. "We had a really good  meeting with the ministry people in regards to the proposed  Tetrahedron Alpine Park," he  said.  He also felt the convention  was helpful in proving, "Our  problems are also someone  else's problems too."  The SCRD also met with the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs,  Wilson said, in regards to a  planning grant for the  revitalization of Madeira Park.  In total there were 132 resolutions brought forward during  the convention in a 'pitch' for  delegate support ranging from a  call for provincial legislation to  regulate the storage of hazardous and toxic waste, and for  legislation to require the  disclosure of municipal election  campaign funding sources, to  yet another requesting a return  Please turn to page 12  Library vote  gets 97��/o support  In an overwhelming show of support for the Gibsons  library, last Saturday, 97 per cent of those residents of Areas  E and F who voted said 'yes' to a slight tax increase to help  keep the library going.  As one gentleman in Area F put it: "I don't read, I don't  want my taxes to go up, but we need a library!"  Four hundred and forty voters went to the polls on Saturday with 261 saying yes in Area E against 11 no's; and 179 in  Area F in favour against three opposing.  v^  Dastardly Deeds Dashed  Batman Trounces "The Joker"  Batman foiled another round of mayhem and dirty  tricks attempted by the "Joker" at Sunnycrest Mall in  Gibsons last Saturday.

Heading the lists of known controversies to come  from our nation's capital would be the proposed new  goods and services tax; a law on abortion and a decision  on the Meech Lake Accord.  Ail of the above will no doubt gain and earn lots of  printer's ink and great deal of solemn comment  throughout the various news media. But underlying all  of the headlines for the moment is a profound uncertainty in many quarters about the very future of the  country.  Canada, it can be said, has always been an east-west  dream at odds with a north-south reality. One of the  causes of the underlying concerns is that the recent free  trade agreement strengthens the north-south pull just at  a time when the east-west cohesion seems particularly  vulnerable.  There is no one who is pleased at the use of the notwithstanding clause by the Quebec government to overturn the Supreme Court ruling on bilingual signs. It is a  sign of profound weakness on the part of Premier  Bourassa and flies in the face of the attempt valiantly  made over the past 20 years by the rest of the country to  come to terms with its bi-cultural heritage.  In caving in to the extremists in his province,  Bourassa has fuelled the extremists in the other provinces. More Canadians than ever before want the country to break up, and this at a time when the north-south  tug of the United States has been strengthened as never  before.  Let us hope that our politicians are not so caught up  in the flambuoyantly controversial issues before them  that they lose sight of the fundamental challenge which  lies sombrely dormant below the surface of the day's  events.  5 YEARS AGO  Carl Christmas was literally blasted out of bed last Friday night when lightning and its accompanying thunderbolt slammed into his 20-foot travel trailer in Porpoise  Estates, blowing the plug through which his electricity  was connected clear out of the trailer's exterior wall and  frying the wires in telephone and electrical lines.  The 1984 convention of the Union of British Columbia  Municipalities held in Vancouver last weekend took as  its theme, "Community" and anyone in attendance expecting fireworfcsror government bashing must have  been disappointed.  10 YEARS AGO  Indignant mothers in Port Mellon held their children  out of school in protest against the service provided by  the local school bus. Alleged irresponsible behaviour on  the part of the school bus driver led to the action.  Renovations at St. Mary's Hospital were completed  and dignitaries and guests attended opening  ceremonies. Some 150 people listened to local MLA  Don Lockstead and Minister of Health Bob McClelland.  Gibsons agreed to allow Langdale residents to connect a proposed sewage system with theirs. The decision would need 66 per cent approval by the population  to be implemented.  Residents of Roberts Creek approved the referendum  for a new community hall by a margin of 62.5 per cent.  A stolen ring valued for personal reasons was  anonymously returned and found hanging on the  owner's (Herb Craig) doorlatch.  20 YEARS AGO  Pal-O-Mines Skyline Arabians Stables belonging to Ken  Kiedler of Gibsons has entered two horses in the 1969 Northwest International Horse Show.

One very early spring day  when we were living in Wales  and a gale off the Irish sea was  buffeting the land and threatening to freeze us all before morning, we found a swan which had  been blown out of the sky and  was too weak to go any further  than the side of the road. When  we saw it, we were driving back  into North Wales from Bath  and it was late on a Sunday  night.  The swan was sitting there on  the side of the road in the wind  and sleet, its beak just touching  the ground and its long neck  curled -around_in a backwards"  "S". It put up no resistance  when we approached to help  and went willingly into the back  seat of the small car inspite of  manoeuvring problems.  We drove first to Pwllheli but  the vet there was closed and our  banging on the door elicited no  response. Try the police station,  the neighbour suggested.  The policeman on duty had a  list of the veterinarians in the  area and after some phoning  around found one which was  open. He gave us directions on  how to get there and we set off  again into the storm.  Finally we found the place  and carried the swan into the  vet's barn which was full of  sheep and one sheep dog. The  vet said he was sorry but he  knew nothing at all about birds  and all he could do was give our  swan an injection of vitamins  and wish us luck.  So at home, we bedded the  swan down next to one of the  only sources of warmth in the  house that night, a small heater  in the kitchen. We put out a  bowl of water and some bread  but it wouldn't eat and went  back to resting its beak on the  floor too weak to hold its head  up.  The next morning, the swan  could no longer stand and we  frantically tried to find  somebody to help. The RSPCA  had no facilities in that part of  Wales and all they could do,  they said, was put the swan out  on a pond. But, they agreed, in  this weather it would probably  die as the storm was continuing  and it was snowing quite hard.  The swan is an incredibly  beautiful bird and somehow this  one appeared a magical  creature, sitting as it was in our  tiny kitchen. It was easy to imagine it was a royal being; some  princess of long ago turned into  a bird by a wicked witch. That it  should die because we failed to  help it was unbearable. ���"',*''  ; Finally we tracked down an  old woman in South Wales who  knew everything there was to  know about swans. Get a deep  bucket of water, she said, place  bread on the top, stroke the  swan's throat four or five times  to tickle it and then dunk its  head in the water. That will  show it what to do, she assured  us.  At first this didn't work and a  lot of tears were shed before the  swan finally got the idea. But all  of a sudden she began to eat  and there was no end to the  amount of bread it consumed.  Not really sure of the sex of  the bird, we called her Scarlet  O'Hara anyway. As it turned  out, she was a female.  By the next day her head was  up and she was busy making  herself a nest out of the hay we  had given her. When we sat  down for breakfast, she stood  up and with her head at least six  inches above table level, calmly  watched us all the while. What a  great bird she was!  Swans are social animals and  need a fairly large expanse of  water so the problems arose of  what to do with Scarlet when  she was well again and the  weather cleared.  A man in in Pwllheli named  Sam Barnes, reached after  another dozen phone calls,  agreed to take her. He already  had an injured swan, a male  with a broken wing, so one  other bird was no problem he  said.  Barnes was a strange man.  He was originally from Manchester but had settled in  Pwllheli after winning the football pools. He was a naturalist,  had travelled the world and he  loved birds.  All the way to Pwllheli in the  car, Scarlet became more and  more excited the nearer we got  to the sea. She swivelled her  long neck about looking first  out one window and then  another until she reminded us of  an excited puppy.  Finally we arrived and Sam  Barnes welcomed Scarlet to his  yard and the old swan with the  broken wing was delighted.  Scarlet stretched her long neck  and they began to dance.  Swans mate for life, Sam told  us, and as far as we know,  Scarlet and her old prince are  living happily ever after.  Wild Swans at Code  J'HE trees are in their autumn beauty,  The woodland paths are dry.  Under the October twilight the water  Mirrors a still sky;  Upon the brimming water among the stones  Are nine-and-fifty swans.  The nineteenth autumn has come upon me  Since I first made my count;  I saw, before I had well finished,  All suddenly mount  And scatter, wheeling in great broken rings  Upon their clamorous wings.  I have looked upon those brilliant creatures,  And now my heart is sore.  All's changed since I, hearing at twilight,  The first time on this shore,  The bell-beat of their wings above my head,  Trod with a lighter tread.  Unwearied still, lover by lover,  They paddle in the cold  Companionable streams or climb the air;  Their hearts have not grown old;  Passion or conquest, wander where they will,  Attend upon them still.  But now they drift on the still water,  Mysterious, beautiful;  Among what rushes will they build,  By what lake's edge or pool  Delight men *s eyes when I awake some day  To find they have flown away?  William Butler Yeats  Before I forget  Grumbling in a snowscape  by Alec C. Booth  The strong opinions for or  against the federal government's proposed new sales tax  puts me in mind of a previous  attempt to make taxation more  palatable. That is, The Royal  Commission on Taxation under  Kenneth Carter.  I have reason to remember.  Canada being a country of  many and widely spread construction projects, I found  myself in 1966 at Label sur  Quevillon, in the Abitibi region  of Quebec, where a town and a  pulp mill were being built.  "There was a large camp for  the workers in the proximity of  the mill site and I resided with  others in Complex 16 of that  camp. Among the others was an  old fellow I had known hi other  places at other times.  Together we had heard, on  the radio, Mr. Carter speak of  his report. The basic idea seemed to be, "tax every dollar a  person makes", even if it is  junior making it from a paper  route. It should all go on Dad's  income tax return, Carter said.  Old Al got an, immediate fixation on this statement and it  was with him next morning. I  wrote it up at the time as  follows:  We left the kitchen, the snow  was up to the eves in places and  it got in the tops of our boots as  we went through the drift at the  door. My fellow flounderer was  an old Englishman.  He was slightly overhung that  morning, and slightly overwrought over the Carter Report about which we had heard  on the radio the previous evening. He walked close behind me,  using me as a windbreak, and  continued the monologue begun  at the breakfast table. He was  putting a lot of energy into it for  I could hear him clearly through  my parka hood and helmet lining in spite of the wind.  "Tax every dollar, the man  said; you heard him. They turn  my stomach, politicians, and if  ever a country had too many of  than, this is it.  "Tax every dollar, he said.  We make it, they take it. Watch  the stock market on Monday.  This country's ruled by Montreal and Toronto now. The last  election showed that - if you  had enough sense to notice it  -and we're up here wearing out  our bodies and suffocating our  souls and they don't give a  damn.

Dear Mayor  Strom,  Council  Members   and   Rob   Buchan  -Town Planner;  When the development  known as Marina Place was  proposed, I presented a petition  to council from citizens in the  area concerned about having a  large tract of land given a higher  density without any detailed  plans.or controls in place to ensure what was being built on the  property.  At the public meetings held  on the issue, the town planner  Rob Buchan (responding to the  concern of the citizens) suggested that a restrictive conve-  riant in accordance to the  Municipal Act be placed on the  title of the property. It would  offer protection against the present and future owners  deviating from the original  plans.  At first the council voted  (with Aldermen Reynolds and  Dixon voting for, Alderman  Kunstler against) to approve the  rezoning of the property only if  the restrictive convenant or  equivalent would be accepted by  the developer Art McGinnis.  But this well-used vehicle of  developmental control was later  voted down in an unorthodox  meeting chaired by ex-alderman  Norm Peterson (with only  Alderman Reynolds still voting  for the restrictive convenant)  when the developer Art McGinnis stated that it would threaten  the project.  They, instead, accepted a letter of undertaking from Mr.  McGinnis promising to build a  retirement village, with plans  for 38 units, stating that all  material changes should be approved by council.  Shortly after construction  started, a number 40 was placed  over the number 38 on the realty  sign announcing the number of  units up for sale. It was noticed  by Rob Buchan, among others,  who instructed the building inspector Ralph Jones to have the  number 38 put back on the sign.  Time went on and construction continued when I noticed a  NRS real estate flyer advertising  no less than 42 units for sale. I  questioned the validity of this  flyer to an equally surprised  town planner.  Later that morning I was informed by Mr. Buchan that the  developer, Mr. Art McGinnis,  had aquired his building permits  in three phases with the third  phase containing (with a little  juggling) four extra unannounced units. These permits had  been signed and delivered  separately without the building  inspector noticing the  discrepancy between what was  originally agreed upon (38 units)  and what was really being built  (42 units).  I as a taxpayer and concerned  citizen, have some questions to  ask:  1. Why wasn't the council informed of the material changes  to the building plans?  2. Why is it that even though  the developer obtained his third  phase building permit in May  (knowing full well he was  building 42 units) the realty sign  outside the development has not  been changed from 38?  3. Are we in no legal position  to force the developer back to  the original plan of 38 units?  4. How does the fire department (who had many adopted  suggestions concerning fire  hydrants and access lanes) feel  about the additional four units?  5. How do the people who  bought into the first phase of  the village feel about extra people sharing the facilities of the  complex?  6. What good is a letter of  undertaking?  Kirby Carson  Editor:  Re: Public Transport on the  Sunshine Coast.  In a few days time we will be  returning to England after our  third holiday with friends in  Wilson Creek.  This year we have used the  new community buses to shop  in Sechelt and Gibsons, and to  link with BC Ferry service in  Langdale.  These buses are a  _K=  _��*c  _K��C  mmrXmVSm  great asset to the area and /we  hope they will be well appreciated by the local residents  and as an alternative to the use  of a car.  We congratulate your 'public  relation officers', ie your excellent drivers, who make  everyone welcome on entering  the bus and who are so helpful.  Betty and Horace Harbot|:je  Minister, Thanet, England  3*8C  fi  ft  must fight to defend Canada  Editor:  I am in complete agreement  with John Burnside's  'Musings', of September 5  about the local APEC (Association for the Preservation of  English) group. I found Mr.  Knaus' description of French as  being a 'contamination' particularly offensive.  Intolerance can be found  everywhere, but this local anti-  French group serves to demonstrate the need for on-going  diligence in fighting bigotry.  There are other groups to be  sure, established purely to get  rid of other languages, races,  etc. They are intolerant, antidemocratic and what I believe  to be anti-life.  Difference and variation is a  necessity for all life on the  planet. Would we have it any  other way? Life flourishes best  amidst diversity. I believe this to  be true at a human level too.  Intolerance is the basis of all  the major social problems in the  world, past and present - be it  intolerance of race, religion,  political persuasion, or in this  case, language.  It we require others to be like  ourselves, then we are wrapped  up in a life-destroying attitude  because that's exactly where intolerance leads when taken to  it's extremes - to death and  destruction.  We happen to live in a bilingual country and again would  we have it any other way? This  is one of the few ways in which  we are distinct and unique from  the US.  With the passage of the 'Free'  Trade Agreement, accompanied  by the US establishing the rules  for more and more of our  economy, we need to cling to  that which makes us uniquely  Canadian more than ever  before.  With the growth of groups  like APEC across Canada, it's  no wonder that Quebec is  renewing its thoughts toward independence.

As an experienced wildlife  rehabilitator, I have come  across several instances where  domestic birds have been left to  fend   for   themselves,   with  disastrous results. Also, crossbred offspring between wild and  domestic ducks have a serious  effect on the wild populations.  Arrangements were thus made  to transfer this particular duck  to a much safer location where  she would be with her own  kind.  The duck now has a large  natural pond to swim in, a male  and female Muskovy duck.for  company, lots of grass .to eat,  an unlimited supply 9||oo4$nd  in the winter she and her two  'friends',!,will sleep sajfely.in;,a  duck-house with lots of hay for  warmth.

Oji, Canfor, HSPP and the  provincial government concerning taxes to be paid by HSPP or  our place in a restructured community.  Indeed, when our assets were  transferred from Canfor to the  new HSPP where Canfor is a 50  per cent owner, we even paid  the standard land transfer tax.  There were no deals!  Obviously the government's  action is an expression of concern about the climate for  future investment in British  Columbia. The government is  also aware that HSPP will experience severe financial  pressures between late 1990 and  1993.  The interest to be paid on our  $600 million capital debt will be  about $5 million per month, far  beyond our present earning  capacity on pulp alone. Our  very survival will depend on our  ability to quickly produce  newsprint which will meet Oji's  standards for quality.  W.I.

Pamela Hedderson  where would we be - with a huge  chunk of land and people gone  from the middle of Canada?  Could this possibly be one of  the motivations for these groups  - a desire to join the US, leaving  Quebec as an independent  French country? There is little  doubt that Canada would cease  to exist without Quebec.  I happen to enjoy being a  Canadian and shudder at this  scenario. We must have faith in  ourselves as a viable country  along with out historical partners, the French Canadians,  and fight to preserve, not  destroy this great nation.

What with three portables (not including the special  needs kids and computer room  portable), things are really  crowded.  With an overall increase of  children from Kindergarten and  Grades 1 to 7, the population of  the school is now a whopping  241. Kindergarten has reached  an 'also whopping 31' with new  teacher Lori Swan doing a great  job.  Other teachers joining the  staff this year are Bonnie  Paisch, part-time Grade 7, and  Cynthia Normand, who is  handling Grade 3. A big welcome goes out to all you new  students and teachers from the  staff and children of Roberts  Creek Elementary and the  Roberts Creek community.  According to Principal Hercus, there are 28 new families  with children attending the  school and eight families have  left the area, some to Gibsons  and Langdale.  SCHOOL ADDITION  When asked if and when are  we going to see an addition to  Roberts Creek Elementary,  Principal Stewart Hercus very  happily stated that in 1990  HOPEFULLY the money will  be promised and an architect  will be hired that year to do a  study on the school. Then the  addition will be constructed in  the school year of 1991.  Possibilities of how the addition will be done ie. added on  the back or possibly added on  top will be decided in 1990. Hercus stressed that the public is requested to become involved in  This engaging fellow resides at North Road and Cemetery Road in  Gibsons and seems to be in the apple business as he never turns  down an offer of one. ���Vera Elliott photo  Fifth Annual Fall  Fair is planned  for October 21st  Friday, September 29 is the  deadline for community groups  and organizations to register for  the Fifth Annual Volunteer Fall  Fair, sponsored by the  Volunteer Action Centre. The  fair takes place this year on  Saturday, October 21 at the  Sechelt Elementary gym, from  10:30 am to 3 pm.  Space is going fast, as many  volunteer groups are now aware  that this event offers them an  excellent opportunity to let the  community know about the  work they do, and to raise funds  by selling a variety of items,  such as beautifully made crafts  of the Save the Children Fund,  used books, T-shirts, preserves  and baked goods and much  more.  Lunch and snacks will be  available through the day at the  kitchen, run by the Volunteer  Action Centre, and local merchants are once again proving  their generosity by donating  many exciting door prizes, (admission is 50 cents). There'll  also be musical entertainment  and helium balloons for sale.  For children 12 years and  under there is the chance to  show their talents as bakers of  chocolate chip cookies in the  Great Chocolate Chip Cookie  Baking Contest.  As well, Pastimes in Sechelt is  co-sponsoring the Volunteer  Fall Fair Colouring Contest  with prizes in two categories  -five to seven years, and eight to  10 years. Forms are available  now at Pastimes Toy Store, or  from the Volunteer Action Centre, 5638 Inlet Avenue.

When asked  what would happen to the  playground Hercus stated that  the back of the school would be  impossible for that, as it is "too  rocky and hilly." So folks,  here's keeping our fingers crossed, and hopefully we can accommodate all the children until this very welcome addition  happens.  OPEN HOUSE  Roberts Creek Elementary  Open House will take place October 5 from 6:30 to 8 pm.  Come out parents and meet the  teachers and see your child's  progress. We look forward to  seeing everyone.

(See story.)  ."Y ���Ellen Frith photo  Sewer still smells  Continued from page 1  "Y Reeves told the Coast News  last week that, in his opinion,  what smell that still exists is  coming from the trickling filter.  He also feels the tanks should  not be covered over as they are.  " It's too warm in the dome,''  he said. "The system needs a  good exposure to ultra-violet  light and greater air  dissolution."  The smell aside, recent lab  tests on the resultant sludge  from the process have "been  very positive", Foss said. "A  steering committee from  Dayton and Knight and a representative from the government  have been around studying the  system."  What the Gibsons system  needs now, Foss said, is an  automatic bar screen which  would clean inorganic items  from the system. At the moment, these items have to be  scraped off the screen by hand  every two or three weeks.  Such an automatic bar screen  would cost "approximately  $25,000," Dixon said.  Foss said he is trying his best  "to get everything fixed up"  and feels if people would come  to examine the plant, they  would view the whole thing differently.  "All they have to do is make  an appointment," he said.

Community organizations rose to the  occasion and donated the funds  that Greg had to raise locally as  his share of the cost. The main  portion of the cost was provided  by CIDA's Youth Initiative  Fund and by the Save the  Children Fund of BC.  The United Nations Association in Canada organized the  tour whereby 15 Grade . 11  students in the Lower Mainland  visited Kenya and Zimbabwe,  stopping in London en route for  orientation.  "We visited a school in  Nairobi where about a quarter  of the students are sponsored  through Save the Children's  Fund of BC," said Greg, "and  we went on a three day safari to  the Masai Mara Game Park."  Since parents there have to  pay for their children's education, these disadvantaged  children would not otherwise  have any schooling.  Kenya, he discovered, struggles to maintain a balance between wildlife preservation and  the need to develop agriculture.  The country also struggles to  stem the ravages of poaching.  In the three weeks in Zimbabwe, the students first visited  a resettlement project in the  Zambesi Valley, a project partly  supported by the Children's  Fund. There they helped in the  fields, pumped water, prepared  food, and joined in the singing  and dancing in the evenings.  The students made acquaintances among Zimbabweans  their own age and they hope to  develop twinning programs between their schools and ours.  "We also visited a refugee  camp near the Mozambique  border where people await peac-  ful times in their own country  when the guerrilla raids cease  and they can return home.  "Their camps are highly  organized," said Greg, "with  schools underway and gardens  and crops of grain cultivated. I -  suppose the other camps were  also independent communities,  the people looking after^,  themselves.  "Zimbabwe is the third  largest producer of tobacco in  the world. It seems to be the  main business of the minority  whites in the country. Since rail  traffic through South Africa  has been cut off, and the tobacco and other exports have to go  by rail through guerrilla country  in Mozambique, South Africa  has become a bad name in Zimbabwe."  Greg said a change in parliamentary representation is likely  to come in 1990 which will  reduce the number of whites in  the senate and in its lower  house.  /During the orientation in  London, the students also had  time to see the British House of  Commons, Westminster Abbey  and St. Paul's.  "We got to see Les Miser-  abies, the musical that is playing  to sell-out houses. And we had  no problems in travelling  throughout our trip."  Greg is very appreciative of  the assistance he received from  groups and associations here on  the Coast.  PROPANE WOES  A man trudging up School  Road, a 20 pound propane can-  nister hanging heavy in his  hand, asked me as I passed  where he could get a fill. But I  didn't know. Thought the Gibsons Marina handled it.  Later inquiry revealed the  Gibsons Marina has gone out  of the propane service and its  tank removed and gone to the  John Enevoldson Welding Shop  on Highway 101.  Since this is now the only propane outlet in Gibsons, visiting  boaters have a long dragging  walk to replenish a tank.  Marine service?  "We had to serve every propane requirement there was including automobiles. It got to  be too much," said a Gibsons  Marina employee.  UNITED CHURCH  The Reverend Stanley 'Stan*  Sears has put retirement aside to  take up an interim ministry in  the Gibsons United Church and  in St. John's in Davis Bay.  "I have been assisting Alex  Reid this past year and this present interim ministry will see me  carry on alone until the end of  June next year."  During this interim a search  will be made for a minister to  take the position permanently.  he went to Schefferville, the-  iron mine town that closed a  few years ago when market  prices fell. "Still a rich ore body  there."   ;  In 1962 he served in North  Vancouver, first in Lynn Valley  United until 1967, and then in  St. Andrew's until 1974. After  that he ministered in Winnipeg,  and in New Brunswick and  Nova Scotia churches.  The Sears have resided herei  on Velvet Road since 1987.  Last July 3 in Westminster  Abbey, a Roman Catholic  monastery in Mission, four  young men professed their  solemn vows to commit their  lives to the monastic life.

Best man was the groom's  ; brother, Gordon, and maid of  honour, Arlene, the groom's  sister. At the reception that  followed, Wendy Gilbertson  was master of ceremonies, and  Raymond Dube proposed the  toasts to the bride and groom.  Among the guests were the  groom's parents, Gail and Bud  Mulcaster of Gibsons, and the  bride's, Ronald and Pauline  Gaudet of Westport, Nova  Scotia.  The bridal couple, who had  chosen the evening hour of nine  for the ceremony in sentimental  recollection of a first wedding,  left on a 'wedding trip to  Whistler.  The groom works for a  studio as an animator for TV  commercials videos, and the  bride, formerly supervisor of  Gibsons Pool, will continue  work in the fitness industry.  Continued from page 2  types with degrees in the social  sciences, products of the  modern university, they're running us now.  "Why the hell don't they  clear this path. Where's all the  mechanization we're always  hearing about?"  Just then it appeared out of a  cloud of powder snow, a diesel  powered mastodon, and we  gave it a very sufficient right of  way.  "Sign of the times," he  shouted, "the machines take  over and men are pushed aside.  Well it is better walking now;  there's got to be some benefit in  these modern times. Jesus; it's  cold."  But it wasn't cold enough to  freeze his fluency and he continued in fine voice.  "I'm one of a dying breed,  dedicated, does a good job.  Look around you, where do  you find the tike today? They  need people like me, but where  are they? There are none; at  least not many. I'm one of the  last.  "The emphasis is different  today; no gentlemen, no craftsmen, just clever people, or people who think they're clever,  holding   meetings,   writing  reports, filling out forms but  not producing. At least, not  producing as we produced,  good work without fanfare.  "We didn't worry about our  image, just got on with the job,  and with no panic. Today the  image is the thing, two dimensions, no feeling for depth, and  they're getting , away with it.  People haven't changed since  the time of Christ, blind to the  subtleties of the human condition, no respect for gentleness.  "Now you've got to be  dynamic. That's the word today. Get rich. Get powerful.  Get on top, even if you have to  trample the weak and the truth  into the ground doing so; and  they call that civilization.  "I tell you boy (he was calling  me boy and I was heading for  60) we're on the down grade.  You don't need to respect the  individual today, there are  none, just stereotyped mechanical beings. Listen to their conversation if you don't believe  me.  "The good days are gone.  When I think of the way things  were when I was growing up. I  see the difference. A man was a  man then. We had time for  other things than this dollar  madness; time to think, time to  live, time for the beauty and the  joy of life. They don't know  about these things today and  they wouldn't understand if you  told them.  "They don't think, now  they're conditioned by all the  claptrap that is thrown at them  by the mass media, they call it,  and by what passes now for  education. World beaters they  all want to be. They don't know  how to live. They haven't time  to live. Too busy turning  everything into a dollar, trees,  (we were passing through the  wood yard just then) other people's lives, everything.  "Well, at least it's not snowing now.  We're  up  to  our  bloody necks in it anyhow. A$!  England was beautiful when2l  was a boy, but Germany had fo  try and knock her down. Didnft  manage it, not that time; b|t  did the second time. At least  that is what it works out to, now  the   Americans   are   on   toj.  Anyhow I've nearly had my  time and I've my memories"'*���  We had arrived at the mifl  and now we went our different  ways  in  the  very  welcome^  warmth of the buildings.

In the case of the proposed  new 'super ferries' with a  capacity of 500 to 600 cars,  these will not be available for  another two or three years,  Long said, so the BC Ferry Corporation is considering a smaller  one to fill the gap.  "We learned a lot this summer," Long said. "It is time we  had a back up ferry, because  with the breakdowns and the increased tourist traffic, we were  getting behind the eight ball."  "Since 1986 there has been a  15 per cent increase in tourism  every year. Our ferry system is  now at the point where it's filled  to capacity all summer.  "We've oversold BC. The  infra-structure we had in place  is not enough to take care of the  people that are coming in."  Long also said that plans are  under way to end the congestion  at Horseshoe Bay. "I'd like to  tell you about it," he said, "but  I can't yet."  In answer to the question  "Are ferries the final solution?"  Long replied "We've looked at  a highway, but it's not  economical. The ferries seem to  be the only way to go right  now."

Teddy Be  get a hars  by Jean Robinson   885-2954  The tiny would-be ecologists,  who are the clients of Teddy  Bear Daycare, are confused and  a bit angry because their 'Bear  Country' is no more.  On their daily walks, these  children have always enjoyed  the area above Fir Road and  south of Bay Road. This past  summer 24 acres were bulldozed  to dirt and rubble, all in the.  name of progress. Now instead  of tall trees and circular roads, a  moonscape exists.  It was cleared to 'maximize  the view' and will not be  developed until there is a  market for it. This could interpret as 'years away'. Difficult to  explain to pre-schoolers or half  the residents of the high side of  Fir Road.  PARENT TOT  The Parent and Tot Drop-In  begins again on October 3 at  9:30 am in the Bay/Creek Hall,  corner of Laurel and Davis Bay  Roads. This continues every  Tuesday for the winter season.

It is small, apparently  has 15 stops and still makes  beautiful music. However the  Centre finds it difficult for the  elderly to play. They would  dearly love to sell or trade it for  a piano.  Please phone 885-5144 if you  can help.  Sechelt Seniors  Heavy agenda  V Larry Graf tori  Our general monthly meeting  turned out to be probably one  of the longest on record, due to  the carry-over of business of the  branch from the summer months when there were no general  meetings.  Although there were a variety  of topics that were on the agenda, not all of them (as happened  at our September executive  meeting) were discussed,  because of the time element involved. Some things simply had  to be postponed to a later  meeting.  A considerable amount of  time was spent in discussion of  the altered bus schedule which,  of course, does not fit in too  well with our seniors' standard  procedures. Thursday morning  crafts and bingo on the second  and fourth Thursdays of the  month will likely suffer because  of the change. C'est la vie!  A favourable financial report  was presented, along with the  auditor's report for 1988, by  Viv Pallot, our treasurer. Each  month seems to bring needed  progress toward our new activity centre but that progress must  increase a thousand fold before  our goal is accomplished.  It was unfortunate that so  few members attended this most  important meeting to hear their  president, Mike Timms give a  first hand report on developments that are taking place with  regard to proposed location and  financing for our new buildjng.  In view of the fact that branch  membership stands at 542 to  date, it would seem that the immensity of the situation would  have broken loose even the least  interested of our membership.  Things are about to happen  that will be far-reaching as far  as Branch 69 is concerned, and  you as a member should be interested enough to attend, and  participate in discussions which  concern your interest. Mark the  next general meeting on you  calendar October 19.  A motion on the floor to purchase new sound equipment for  $1200 to $1500 was defeated.  Ruby Breadner" and Helen  Neelands have volunteered to  look after the first and third  Tuesday cards for the branch. A  vote of thanks was exteneded to  Beryl and Bill Butler who have  chaired this activity for four or  five years.  For personal reasons, Muriel  and Walter Fen wick, who  volunteered, had to withdraw  their services in favour of Ruby  and Helen.  SHOP EASY DRAW  Mary Bannerman indicates a  shortage of Shop Easy receipts  which are utilized to generate  gift certificates for branch functions. Your co-operation in saving these for our branch will be  appreciated.  Winners of the draw at the  general meeting were: Harold  Heath, Mary Bannerman,  Phoebe Hansen, Mel Neelands  and Dick Ansell.  TERMINAL  forest Products Ltd.

Coast News, September 25,1989  ____  A Pender Harbour family erected these signs along Highway 101 near Garden Bay to protest the clear  cut logging and herbicide spraying of their nearby watershed, where they get their drinking water.  They also met with a representative of Terminal Forest Products, which is doing the logging and  spraying, and after three hours came to an agreement. ���David Fraser photo  Pender water problem  Continued from page 1  fer zone on both sides of the  creek and above the family's  water dam and to spray at least  10 metres away from trees.  Petraschuk says the trees are  important to prevent erosion.  She says there has been a slide  already and there could be more  trouble when the rains come.  She says Clarke also agreed  to spray only on cool, calm days  with no wind.  The crown land in question  was logged two years ago by  Terminal Forest Products and  planted last year. The company  holds a spraying permit for  1988-90.  "It's not the local logging  companies who are to blame,"  says Petraschuk. "It's the  government for issuing these  licences."  "It's an illegal protest," says  Ron Grechner, district silvicul-  turalist for the Sunshine Coast  Forest   District.   "Terminal   is  well within their rights to call  the cops and get this thing  broken up."  He says spraying is necessary  because brush is competing with  planted trees.  "They're holding up an operation that's been approved  through the proper agencies."  In March of this year the  South Pender Harbour Waterworks District protested the logging of the watershed in court  but lost. "They've had their day  in court," says Grechner.  "You have to have valid  grounds to appeal it. These people are protesting something  that's been looked into very  carefully."  "We anticipate that their  water supply will not be compromised," says Ministry of  Forests spokesman *Brian  Hawry. "We're as interested in  the community water supply as  they are.

Petraschuk says an area  measuring 400 by 550 metres  has been logged and a larger site  across Highway 101 is slated for  further cutting.  Hawry says logging road construction is nearly complete but  the BC Ministry of Environment is monitoring construction  to ensure that water quality and  quantity is maintained.  Vision is the trade name of  the herbicide used by foresters  to control competing non-crop  vegetation in order .t&ensure the  survival of crop trees and to  promote their growth.  Vision, also known as  Roundup, controls a wide varie-Y  ty of^plants, including alder^-  willov^; i aspen,; ���;birch,;. jeld��f -1  berry, ^salmonberry, thimble-j  berry and all types of grassY���-���  The ministry of forests claims  that often these plants are difficult to control by other  methods.  "Tests conducted on animals  have determined that the toxicity of Vision is extremely low,"  states the forests ministry in an  information pamphlet on Vision use.  The ministry claims that based on these tests a 75 kilogram  (165 pound) person would need  to consume, at one sitting, more  than 900 millilitres (32 ounces)  of the full-strength Vision, or  over 15 litres (three gallons) of  the highest concentration to  achieve a probable lethal dose.  Vision, the forests ministry  notes, persists in the environment for six months. The  treated area will grow back  within three years as a result of  reseeding or regrowth of partially damaged brush.  The ministry admits that Vision is moderately toxic to some  fish species although "under  normal application rates and  practices the concentrations of  Vision toxic to fish will not be  reached.  The herbicide, adds the  ministry, causes no toxico-  logical problems to wildlife but  could, through loss of foilage,  cause forage problems for  animals such as moose and  deer. Fish and wildlife  managers, however, review all  forestry permit applications and  may recommend that the use of  Vision be controlled to maintain  critical habitat.  are  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The most frightening Halfmoon Bay happening in a long  time occurred last Saturday  night some time shortly after 9  pm.  We were driving home from  Sechelt when the thunder and  lightning storm was in full  force. It seemed to follow our  vehicle all the way along  Redrooffs Road and at one  point we thought our van had  been struck.  Together with a group of  friends we had just opened the  door to our house when a bolt  struck the transformer immediately across the road. The  flash shot right into the living  room where we were entering  and the lights went out.  Even more frightening was  the fact that in the meantime my  husband was parking the van  and was immediately beneath  the transformer which was hit,  the closest any of us will ever be  to being struck by lightning.  After lighting some candles  we all downed a good stiff  nerve-calming scotch and I  telephoned the BC Hydro office  via the zenith number in Vancouver. I had to listen to taped  music on the line for a long time  before someone live actually  came on.  He told me that it had just  been reported and the supervisor would be having a hard  time contacting a crew since it  was Saturday night, and that it  would probably be several  hours before anything could be  done.  In actual fact it was seven  hours later at around 3:15 in the  morning when the crew came to  fix the transformer.  I couldn't help but wonder  why there was not a standby  crew available for such an  essential service as electric  power. We seem to be able to  round up excellent crews of  firefighters who don't even get  paid for their trouble, yet it  takes,six or seven hours to find  a few people to do this particular job.    -, .,,.',,;,  WELCOME BEACH  Your Welcome Beach Community Association Executive  have lined up some interesting  activities which should suit most  people throughout the fall and  winter months.

'(  lll^M^_ill3igSi  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9099  At the last Thinking Wellness  meeting the group discussed its  goal, "...the possibility of having non-profit or reasonable  rental housing for seniors centrally located in Madeira Park,"  and heard a report from the BC  Housing Management Commission.  The group's next step is to  plan a community forum on  seniors' housing in Pender Harbour, and they want to hear  from seniors (or those who plan  to become seniors) about if or  what they'd like to see in the  area for housing and related  issues.  A seniors housing project will  of course require funding, and  in order to have access to it the  group must document a need  for the project. This means that  if you are interested in seeing affordable, appropriate seniors  housing in Pender Harbour, let  the Choosing Wellness group  know.  You are invited to their next  meeting, today at the Health  Clinic at 1:30 pm.  DEADLINE CHANGE  Please note that my deadline  has been moved to Friday so  that the good people who put  together the Coast News have a  bit more time to do their job,  and thus can do an even better  job. What this means to you is  that I now need information for  this column by Thursday.  QIGONG  Classes in Qi Gong are starting this week at the home of  Evans Hermon and will be on  Tuesday evenings and Thursday  mornings. Qi Gong is a form of  Tai Chi suitable for all ages and  if you'd like more information,  call Evans at 883-2745.  WOOD HEAT?  If you burn wood for heat  and can't afford or don't want  to pay our local firewood supplier for his, the logical answer  is to cut your own on the local  public wood lot.  A Pender Harbour wood-,  burner person decided to do this  and phoned the Forestry Office  in Sechelt to find out where our  local lot was, and he was told  ^thfc^cldisest dney^wasr in'SdmaY  Park and that was only for pine.  The  next   closest  one  is   in  Roberts Creek, and this makes  the prospect of cutting your  own firewood a rather expensive  one  both  in  time and  transportation.  OCTOBER SWAP  The Community Club's October Arts Crafts and Swapmeet  will be held on October 1 rather  than the usual first Saturday in  October.

(The latter was defeated  in spite of impressive statistics in  support of the resolution.)  Citing the necessity of  "thinking globally, balancing  locally", the UBCM Convention addressed a number of important environmental issues.  "The growing range and  depth of environmental concerns and the pressure of financing local government are the  key issues facing local government today," states the convention program and handbook.  "On the one hand, communities  are increasingly concerned  about such issues as air and  water quality and management  of the resource base that  underlies their economy.  "On the other hand, local  government financial resources  to meet these and all the other  demands and still balance the  budget is an ever increasing  challenge."  Support was given to several  resolutions regarding environmental issues, SCRD  Chairman Peggy Connor said,  such as for regulations on logging on private lands, on activity  of any kind in water sheds and  for regulations regarding wood  burning appliances.  One issue, that of rural taxation which would allow provincial rural taxes to continue to  rise, Gurney said, was a contentious one which has been referred back to the executive.  "That battle goes on," he  said.  Over the years, the UBCM  has played a role in the development of provincial legislation  within the province and last  year, its resolutions resulted in  the establishment of a review of  assessment and property taxation within BC and in changes  to provincial liquor licensing  legislation which now provides  for more municipal input with  regards to the location of pubs  and other licensed premises.  Whether this year's convention results in any permanent  changes will remain to be seen,  but the general consensus is that  it was a positive affair and that  Penticton proved to be "a  marvellous host."

The fire was well underway  by the time Assistant Fire Chief  Bill Higgs and firemen, with the  pumper and equipment trucks,  arrived at the scene.  Johnson, who had just come  off nightshift from the pulp  mill, and his son, Junior, were  both sleeping when the fire  broke out. Both men escaped by  jumping out of windows  (Johnson from the bedroom  and Junior from the basement),  after a smoke detector had been  activated and Johnson's wife  had pounded on the outside  wall of the bedroom to wake  her husband up.  Johnson was taken to St.  Mary's Hospital to be treated  for smoke inhalation.  "There was a lot of smoke  and it was coming directly at us  making it difficult to see,"  Higgs said. "And on one of the  roofs between the trusses and  ceiling, there was a dead air  space creating a blow torch effect.  "In order to gain control of  the fire we had to extinguish this  source of heat and fortunately  we did.  "We also had to move a  small boat from the side of the  house, and there appears to be  no damage to the neighbouring  houses."  Fire Chief Tony Pike arrived  on the scene and a team of  firemen stayed on the scene for  several hours to take care of any  potential 'hot spots'.  A fire marshall and electrical  inspector have been called to investigate the cause of the fire  and a report is pending.  When Johnson returned  from the hospital and surveyed  the charred remains of his home ,  he said, "I remember hearing  this noise and pounding, I guess  the smoke alarm was ringing.  The room was full of black  smoke and I could hardly  breathe or see anything.  "I was pretty confused and  had a hard time to find my way.  out.  "Luckily I got to the window  and jumped. I was real scared."  v,  '*  'Si  *i  '"*���  W  y.  ~m  .*  '��  'a  0 *>  I  .-  Ii:  "(  "I  ���t  il  t  t  u  "V t  Paul  Sechelt Volunteer Fire Department crew battled this blaze at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  on Sechelt Indian District land in Sechelt last Monday. ��� v��irn  Lightning takes out  Port Mellon Mill  Johnson  Elliott photo  In an awesome display of  power last Saturday night,  lightning struck the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper Mill  (HSPP) at Port Mellon burning  out the phone system. Immediately afterwards, a lightning strike close by caused a  power failure and the mill 'shut  down'.  "Every time the power goes,  it's very expensive," Mill  Manager Don Stuart told the  Coast News and he estimated  Saturday night's blackout cost  HSPP approximately $100,000.  Stuart said that during the  storm, eye witnesses saw a bolt  of lightning strike the new  digester (which is not yet in  operation), bounce off onto the  arm of a crane and then travel  down to the cab and into the  ground.  "Apparently it threw a big  puff of dust into the air,"  Stuart said.  Fortunately there was no fire,  but the strike caused severe  damage to the mill's telephone  system which was .still recovering by the end of the week.  The computers fortunately.  said Pierre Lamarche, Production Manager, Pulp Division,  were protected against power  surges and . sustained no  damage.  The electrical blackout,  though, "tripped the mill off,"  Lamarche said. "We re-started  right away but there was one instance of instrumental problems  which made the startup period a  little slower than usual."  Stuart estimated it took approximately 24 hours for the  mill to reach its full operational  rate again.  33=  _CS  ___G  _X_G  3S  SEE  3_C  Mountain Coast Hobbies  ���Family Games ��� Wooden Ships  ��� Balsa Planes^Darts  ���Strategic Games ���Rockets ���Trains ���Hobby Magazines  ���Role Playing Games (D & D) ��� Miniatures ���Ships & Cars  ���Lots of Plastic Models  ���Remote Control Planes  d<m, / bee it*, & can.  k  "FREE DRAW"  Purchase Not Necessary  % off any purchase or  order to purchase  Name:         Phone:   Address:___   Special Interest:  Prize $50 Gift Certificate  Draw Date Oct. 28 - 12 Noon  Ernie Maddams  Box 1586 Sechelt, BC  885-7122  -EC  ___E  _a_c  a_c  _xc  as  _EE  acs  as  _____  ape  u  A  il  )_  ���i:  a  l:  V - yf~ -"."���" ��� *ji~��-'"''-'-  Coast News, September 25,1989  by Peter Trower  These two Japanese beauties were part of a group of departing  Japanese exchange students honoured at a Sayonara party held  last Wednesday at the Marine Room in Gibsons. ���Vem Elliott photo  Profiles of this place  Trinidad is, among other  things, a painter of considerable  accomplishments who once  studied under the famous  revolutionary muralist, Diego  Rivera. Herb is fascinated. He  has always had an undisguised  admiration for art and artists.  "I have often thought of dabbling in it myself," he allows.  "If they will let us have a few  materials, I would be honoured  to try to teach you," offers  Juan Trinidad.  Herb approaches the prison  chaplain on his next rounds.  The cleric deems it a worthy  undertaking and obtains paints  and brushes for them. For a few  days, the drab death row cell  serves as a one-student art  school.  Herb makes a few hesitant attempts at crude California landscapes then, somehow, the  lessons are forgotten and the  cell walls become Trinidad's.  Like a man possessed he  splashes remembered Mexico  across them in bright, glowing  pigments; puts the peons drowsing by the adobes and the  marimba bands blaring in  village squares; depicts Pancho  Villa holding up a train with a  horde of machete-eyed banditos  at his back; paints children big-  eyed at their stern play and  langorous senoritas, shawled,  night-haired, and seductive,  plotting   infidelities   under  banana-pepper moons.  In the blind pocket of a San  Quentin death cell, Juan  Trinidad recreates the colours  and loves of the hot world he  will never see again. The walls  have become his last will and  testament.  But he cannot run away'into  those painted landscapes. One  Tuesday evening Professor  Damascus Garcia Gallure and  his band launch into La  Poloma. Juan Trinidad hums  softly from the bunk above  Herb in their festive cell. "It  was always my favourite song,"  he says.  On Thursday the guards  come for Juan Trinidad. He will  spend his final night in the execution chamber. He clasps  Herb's hands. "Goodbye, my  friend," he says. "Vaya con  Dios."  The following morning at  precisely 10 minutes after 10,  three guards in a hidden room.  beside the gallows cut three  cords simultaneously. One of  them triggers the trap. Like men  in a firing squad with a single  live bullet, none of them wants  the blame. Later, word comes  through from the scavengers (as  the post-execution clean-up  trusties are known) that Juan  Trinidad died quickly and well.  Herb Wilson sits in the fiesta-  bright cell that Juan Trinidad  has left him. He will carry these  vivid images with him for the  rest of his days.  ...to be continued  Thursday, September 28  7:00 pm  Live  School Board Speaks Out  Superintendent of Schools  Clifford Smith talks to student  council presidents from  Elphinstone, Chatelech and  Pender Harbour Secondary  schools about their plans for  this year's school term.

Eves. 886-2078   886-7329  Local pianist's big opportunity  by Ellen Frith  Stating in an attractivel>  modest manner that she feels  "very much an amateur",  Langdale pianist Wynne Ling is  preparing for a half hour  workshop and master class this  Wednesday with world class  concert pianist Anton Kuerti.  WYNNE LING  "I feel honoured to be having  a workshop with him," she told  the Coast News. "I feel very  honoured and, perhaps, a little  inadequate!"  Ling's choice of music for  this 'great opportunity' is  Beethoven's Sonata in E Major.  Kuerti, who is in Gibsons on  Wednesday to perform later in  the evening, has agreed to give  Ling and two other local  talents, Partricia Hammond  and Kimberley Watts, lessons  and their respective examinations.  Ling is working towards her  Toronto Conservatory Grade 10  level after having passed Grade  9 iast year with a first class standing. She has been playing the  piano since she was fiveyears  old and is a student of Betty  Allen's.  Ling is just "a little nervous"  about the whole thing, she said,  because what started out as an  opportunity for a workshop  with Kuerti soon developed into  a class with an audience, then  into a master class and now  "there is talk it will all be  televised!"  The classes will be held at the  Twilight Theatre in Gibsons  starting at 1:30 Wednesday  afternoon and for $5 it's possi  ble to attend an an auditor. All  proceeds are going towards the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council's  piano fund and, along with the  Twilight Theatre donating the  use of its facilities, Kuerti is turning his fees over to the fund, so  it's all in a good cause.  Ling, a native of Hong Kong,  has been living on the Sunshine  Coast since 1971. Her husband,  Jim, ("Who gives me a lot of  support") is an engineer at the  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  Milljn Port Mellon and they  hive two sons, Isaac, seven, and  Joseph, four. Both boys, Ling  says, show musical talent and  her husband "sings very well".  Lings says she use to attend  concerts a lot but that ceased  along with the late night ferry  run from Horseshoe Bay. Now  the piano takes up much of her  time along with the music  lessons she gives and she is also  very much involved with the  Gibsons Baptist Church.  Ling says she has not heard  or seen Kuerti play yet but, of  course, knows of his reputation.  Some critics claim there are only  This Thursday...Friday...Saturday  cedArs  two or three people in the world  today whose interpretations of  Beethoven can be compared  with his so Wednesday will be a  big day for her, Ling says.  Renowned  guitarist  Jerry Yuzon, the 32-year-old  Fillipino guitar/banjo wizard  brings his entertaining act to the  Cedars Pub in Gibsons this  Thursday, Friday and Saturday  night.  Always a favourite, Yuzon  can duplicate the voices of  Hank Snow, Waylon Jennings,  Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins  and even Louis Armstrong.  Yuzon has been playing stringed instruments since he was  five. He got his start singing by  performing for US soldiers at  military bases in the Phillipines.  One American soldier admired  his skill so much he bought him  an electric guitar.  As a teenager Yuzon took  voice lessons and can now do  just about any voice after only a  few minutes of listening to it.  Yuzon now lives in Maple  Ridge where he is married to a  Pitt Meadows girl.

Many of those in attendance  were former Brits who had  'been there' and could relate in  personal ways to what Helen  managed to write about with  such clarity and a wonderful  mixture of pathos and humour.  She held her audience spellbound and feeling that they  knew each member of this  fascinating family of whom she  wrote.  In the question period which  followed the readings, the most'  frequent question asked was  "What happened to  so-and-so," as there was genuine interest and knowledge of  each family member who had  become so real to the readers.  Helen Forrester's books are  available at local book stores  and if you have not yet laid  hands on them and would like a  really good story which will  completely hold your attention  right to the end, I would recommend that this be rectified. You  will enjoy.  Many thanks to the Arts  Council for having made this  enjoyable evening possible.

The figurative paintings in  this show group around a  number of themes.  Cattle or skulls are frequently  associated with children, her  friends figure prominently, personal crises have stimulated  some while others are drawn  from simple surroundings and  events of life.  One of the most powerful is  'My Compost .Box' where the  object of the title is bound by  similar markings to the season-  end wreck of the garden, which  is toweringly dominated by both  young vigorous and old dying  cedars and firs. This orchestra  of growth and decay is conducted by a whirling duck-bird  on a stick.  c^rOyThe^ combination of power  arid humour is typical of Donna's work, as is the vigor that is  so evident in this exhibition.  Come and see it this week  -it's your last chance - the show  closes September 30. Viewing  hours are 11 to 4, Wednesday to  Saturday.

Finally it was 2:30 pm and I was starving, with a long list of things still to go.  A colleague seemed to be having the same kind of day, so  we decided one of us would hold the fort while the other  dashed out to Ernie and Gwen's Drive-in to bring back  lunch. I was almost wishing it was dinner time already,  because after 6 pm they deliver, but there was no way I could  wait another four hours.  My colleague had an Ernie and Gwen favourite - their  chicken burger. Iliad never had one, having become fixated  on their "deluxe hamburger and fries with gravy" the first  time I tasted them. But I also hadn't tried the pizza that's  quite new on their menu, and with some gentle arm twisting I  struck a deal that we would split both a chicken burger  ($2.75) and a small Ernie and Gwen's special pizza, with ham,  pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, green pepper and cheese  ($8.10).  Another colleague overheard bur discussions and although  she'd already had lunch, couldn't resist ordering a banana  split. I upped the ante with a chocolate shake.  The chicken burger was wonderful, very tender and tasty. I  think I'm a convert! And the pizza^ larger than I expected,  was quite loaded with goodies. We both thought the tomatoe  sauce tasted homemade, and the crust was just right!  About three spoonfuls into the banana split, the eater's  eleven-year-old son arrived. Talk about timing! He im-  mediatley found a spoon and, after the first mouthful, pronounced the split "perfect". I'm certain his mother never  could have eaten all that ice cream without his help!  It's a relief to know there's such a wide selection of fast and  tasty foods ready and waiting at Ernie and Gwen's. And  don't forget, if you live within four miles, after 6 pm they'll  bring it right to your door - no delivery charge if the order is  $10 or more.

Coast News, September 25,1989  ���.'*;,'?>'"���  ���*;:*���  tournament resu  by Frank Nanson  The Gibsons Rugby Club ground down the opposing Ex-Brit side from Vancouver at this hard-hitting  match at Elphinstone Secondary School two Saturday's ago, winning 22-7. Last Saturday the local  squad took on the Vancouver Rowing Club under a sweltering sun, clinching the contest 25-16. Next  game is September 30 at 11:30 am against the Vancouver Meralomas. -Kent Sheridan photo  Gibsons' Pigs in action  Howdy   rugby   fans!   The  season has begun!  The boys in blue are again  taking on the best and the rest  of the Vancouver Rugby  Union. Having started with a  game on September 9 in Vancouver on the Trojans RFC  home field at Gordon Park.  Starting the game with just  enough ballplayers to field a  squad, it was, to say the least, a  struggle all day long.  The fellows gave it a tremendous effort and showed signs of  good things to come. However  steak and prawns at six o'clock  in the morning doesn't prove to  be too effective. The final score  (Ouch!) Pigs 0 - Trojans 42.  Onto this past weekend, September 16. With six games in a  row at home starting with this  week, the Pigs are looking for  the players to show and some  toning up of their game for the  rest of the half.  The Ex-Brits showed up  (Finally) off the 9:30 boat ready  to play with a full contingent of  players. The whistle blew and it  was back to work tor another  70 minutes of rugby.  The game seesawed back and  forth across the field when a  good rucking situation saw the  ball out to the backs and ended  up in Niels (Quick) Payne's  hands and he flew past all  defenders to score the game's  first   points.   An   entertaining  game was taking shape.  A few minutes later the Ex-  Brits pressured with five forward running, and sloppy tackling to score a try for  themselves. The converts on  both were missed, tie game 4 to  4-  Infringements in the game  were plentiful and Ex-Brits got  the first one to go for goal.  Penalty good, Ex-Brits 7 - Pigs  4.  The half ended this way and  it looked like an exciting half to  come.  Out came the two sides, with  fresh replacements and enthusiasm.  The Pigs, it looked like, were  ready when all of a sudden, fine  running and support came in  the score of Troy (City Boy)  Meyers. Convert no good. Ex-  Brits 7 - Pigs 8.  Not looking back, the boys in  blue pressured again and again.  This time it was another fine  run and gun by all, ending up  with Troy being tackled on the  goal line and Eric (New Guy)  Larnder pouncing on the loose  ball for the score. Convert no  good. Dave? Dave? Dave? Ex-  Brits 7 - Pigs 12.  At this time of the game a  serious knee injury to one of the  Ex-Brits players resulted in a  long time-out, ambulance and  all, happy to say the fellow is  okay.  On the Rocks  by Ed Hill  The curling season is here  -ALREADY! Now is the time  to get your name into the  leagues, form up your teams,  get the sweaters out of moth  balls and warm up the old  broom (or brush).  The leagues seem to be filling  faster this year so call soon (Ed  Hill 886-3925, Larry Penonzek  886-9134 or Doreen Stewart  886-7891) or you may miss out.  For those of you who have  never curled before but would  like to try the 'Roarin Game' we  invite you to the Gibsons  Winter Club on Saturday  September 30. We'll be having  an open house and funspiel.  Even if you don't play it'll  provide a great opportunity for  you to see the game up close.  If you're interested in curling  there'll be people there to  answer your questions or get  you involved in a league. We are  not a private club, we're here  for you to enjoy.

Taking possession and driving  forward, Paul (Kiwi) Ruri  pounded in for the club's fourth  try of the game. Convert good  (Ya!). Ex-Brits 7 - Pigs 18.  The game really in the bag,  the boys in the forwards figured  that a try was needed for their  own. Some hard up-field running and team play ended with a  score by Glen (FBI) Dixon.  Convert no good. Yikes! Ex-  Brits 7 - Pigs 22.  Strikes  and Spares  In the last week we had a  series of club tournaments with  the following results: Virginia  Douglas took the Senior  Ladies'(over 55) Club Championship with Dodie Grant the  runner up. The Senior-Senior  Ladies' Club Championship  (over 65) was won by Dodie  Grant with Phyl Hendy the runner up.  In the Men's Fall Medal  Tournament President Freeman  Reynolds took the honours.  There has been a string of  season's end tournaments lately  and I am hoping that we have  not left anyone out.  Last week I got the Ewans  mixed up with the Ewens and  should have had Bill and Mary  Ewan winning the mixed scramble not John and Mary! I am  afraid to say sorry to anyone on  this mix-up, in fear of making  things worse for myself.  The senior men's weekly  results had one of our top teams  taking the booby prize. Can  anyone imagine Roy Scarr, Fred  Moore, Sheridan Greig and Bill  Grant winning the tees?  Low net was more in line  with the norm, Jim Gilchrist,  Larry Farr, Art Kiloh and Geof  Trant taking first place. Closest  to the hole was Bruce Matthews. Andy Gray has been out  of it for the last few weeks - I  wonder if Art's comments are  having some sort of effect?  This Thursday, September 28  is the wind-up round and free(?)  luncheon for all senior men's  group members.  A golfer is in a different environment than any other sportsman. Most sports are played  on a field which is flat and of  fixed dimensions. Golf is not  that way - in golf we are reduced  to quivering despair by rocks,  ponds,  mole holes and sand  dunes. A golfer discovers a way  to hate nature, even a beautiful  maple tree becomes a leafy  monster!  The 18-hole Ladies participated in a tournament at the  Golden Ears Club in Pitt  Meadows. These gals certainly  get   around.   Connie   Grant,  Doreen Harris, Wilma Sim and  Dot Utterback all won prizes.  The 9-hole Ladies played the  White's Low Gross Tournament with the winner being  Lucette Venables. Second place  went to Hazel Earl, third was  Marg Bevan and fourth Mary  Ewan.  Commercial  Men's  Hockey  Our kickoff meeting will be held at the arena in  the banquet room on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 7  pm. We request that all team reps be present as  there will be a few welcome changes this  season. See you on Thursday.  Thank you.

Attendance in'  both competitors and spectators  was the largest all year.  I hope everyone enjoyed the  competition and the wonderful  lunch. We would like to thank  the Gibsons Meat Market for  once again supplying us with excellent steaks. I would like to  personally thank Caroline Tait  for coming to my rescue and  cooking the steaks! Pam McRae  did a wonderful job organizing  and keeping the show running  smoothly. The show started  around 9 am and finished near 5  pm.  The job of show manager in  the past has been a bit of a  thankless job. We would like to  change that. Without this person horse shows would not exist. It is their organization that  allows the rest of us to just show  up and enjoy the day's activities.  Astronomy  Club  meetings  by Neil Sandy  Coast Astronomy Club opens  up a new season of meetings  starting at 7 pm Tuesday at  Roberts Creek Elementary  School.  Club member Bill Phillips  will open the evening with a talk  on basic astronomy followed by  an Astronomy Club open  house. Examples of astrophoto-  graphy and telescope making  will be on display and club  members will be available to  answer any questions.  September marks the first anniversary of the club and the upcoming year is going to be a  busy one. The emphasis this  year is on astronomy for beginners. This is to encourage people with an interest to come forward, join the club and have  some fun.  Meetings are relaxed and informal usually consisting of  films, talks by members, guest  speakers, slide shows, astropho-  tography and telescope  demonstrations and more.  Meetings are the fourth Tuesday of every month with other  nights set aside for telescope  viewing and sky orientation sessions.  Over the winter the club plans  to build three telescopes. Two  of these telescopes will be for  members to borrow for their  own use. The third will be a  specially filtered solar scope used to view sunspots and other  phenomena on the sun's surface. This scope employs a  special fail-safe system so that  the eye cannot be damaged.  Under no circumstances  should the sun ever be viewed  with a regular telescope.  Next spring and summer the  club will again 'go public' by  setting up telescopes at public  parks and campgrounds and for  special interest groups such as  scouts and guides.  Club member Neil Sandy explains "This summer we had  Over 1000 eyes look through our  telescopes and that was without  even trying. Next summer will  be even busier but we are going  to need more telescopes.  "We were at Camp Olave in  August and they had 500 people  on site. We could handle about  100 so 400 missed out. With a  little funding we could build  two more telescopes and then  we could handle most any situation."  Future plans of the Coast  Astronomy Club include a permanent observatory run by the  club for public use. For further  information call Neil at  886-8356 or Meryle at 883-2133.  We would like to thank all  the show managers this year for  doing a great job:  Clear Round Day, Jeanine  EUingham; Dressage Per Cent  Day, Dorothy Christie and  Jeanine EUingham; June 18  Spring Show, Dorothy Christie;  August 20 Gymkana, Don  Cross; September 17 Fall Show,  Pam McRae.  As a result of the judging expertise of Sue Mills, the hi-point  and reserve winners of this show  were as follows:  English hi-point rider of the  day went to Lisa Torvick with  Brother Love, reserve presented  to Sara Pulchalski on Bronze  Alibi.  Western hi-point rider of the  day was awarded to Tracy  Mundell riding Sir Spud Magoo  and reserve went to Christina  Stuart on Gem.  Congratulations to all the  riders, we look forward to seeing you all again in the 1990  season.  I would like at this time to remind everyone of the important  upcoming events. September 28  we are holding an open general  information night in regards to  the bike trail presently along the  highway in Roberts Creek.  This trail, and the continuance of it, is extremely important to all trail riders,  whether serious or leisure, I  strongly urge all horse riders  and enthusiasts to come to this  meeting and find out how it pertains to you!  The October general club  meeting will be postponed to  October 12 at the Community  Use Room at the Roberts Creek  school at 7:30 pm.  We will hold election nominations at this meeting, all executive and committee positions  are open, and we urge everyone  wishing to get involved to please  come out to this meeting. Elections will be held at the  November meeting.  The Canadian Power and  Sail Squadron (CPS) constitutes  a unique national boating  educational body. It is not into  politics, costs the taxpayer  nothing, and yet teaches  thousands the basics of safe  boating.  CPS is not a club, it's more  exclusive than a club. It's an  organization of 24,000 members  across Canada devoted to promoting safety and pleasure in  boating by improving ability  through training.  The only way to qualify for  membership is to pass the CPS  boating course, the value of  which is recognized in many  quarters.  As a member of CPS you are  qualified to receive a considerable discount in your boat  insurance.  The fall boating classes are in  full swing with 58 students, who  are invited to attend our monthly meetings, every third Friday of the month, at 1930 hours  at Greenecourt Hall in Sechelt.  The squadron will conduct  another course in January/February 1990.  For more information call T.  Fay at 886-8645.  This course will cover all  aspects of safe boating from  chart reading and navigation to  rules of the road. Don't forget,  all the work in our 'non profit'  national organization cor-  porated in Canada, is volunteer  work.  Coast News, September 25,1989 17.

"Over the last two or three  years you have heard a barage  of stories opposing salmon farming on the Sunshine Coast.  This fear has consolidated itself  into several radical groups including the local ORCA (Ocean  Resource Conservation  Alliance) and ARF (Anti  Reared Fish). Their sole purpose is to cripple fish farming."  She says their warnings that  farm fish spread diseases to wild  salmon; that farm fish are full  of antibiotics and hormones;  that fish farm genes are  polluted; that their wastes  pollute the environment and  that they taste like fish feed, are  unfounded.  Francis says many of these  perceptions are based on misinformation and she wants to set  the record straight.  Teri Dawe of ORCA,  however, says there is substance  to each one of these allegations.  His group's position is that fish  farming "is not viable in broad  environmental terms. In terms  of fish escaping, waste entering  the environment, disease promotion and the chemicals used  in treating them."  Dawe says his groups biggest  concern is that fish farms are  "culturing centres for disease."  He says his group was im-  plemental in getting the Sechelt  landfill to stop accepting dead  salmon, or morts, as of October  20.  He estimates 25 per cent of  diseased morts from fish farms  find their way to the dump. At  one point "there was more  morts than regular garbage."  There are 200 fish farms in  BC with another 250 working  their way through the government approval system. There  are now 14 fish farms in  Agamemnon Channel, once  considered by the Western  Canada Wilderness Committee  as a candidate for preservation  Assistant Manager Joyce Francis stands next to one of 71 tanks at Aquarius Sea Farms Hatchery on  Porpoise Bay Road. Last year the operation raised five million salmon fry for its 12 fish farms on the  Sunshine Coast. (See Story.) ���David Fraser photo  specific    regulations    for  aqualculture.  due to its exceptional coral and  marine life.  Francis says wild fish have  just as many diseases as farmed  fish and she claims many  diseases were first found in wild  fish stock.  "As farming techniques improve disease frequency will be  reduced. Eggs are screened for  disease before fertilization, fry  can be vaccinated to immunize  them against vibriosis, furun-  culosis and enteric redmouth."  But Dawe says vibrosis has  occurred even with vaccinated  salmon. Scotland and Canada's  East Coast have massive problems with sea lice, says Dawe.  To combat the problems  pesticides are dumped into  pens, many of them  unregistered.  0P&    i  ��� GIBSONS  Sunshine Coast  Mini Storage  To Rent Call  885-2081  Francis says a disease outbreak could wipe out 80 per cent  of domestic fish stock if left untreated.  "However, the same antibiotics as used in cattle, pig  and poultry industries can stop  mortalities in the fish industry,"  she adds.  But Dawe says unlike the  poultry and beef industries most  chemicals used in BC's  aquaculture industry are not  registered and fish farms can  buy chemicals in bulk, such as a  45-gallon barrel of antibiotics.  "Antibiotics are only part of  it," he adds. "What about in-  tifoulants, fungicides,  algeacides, protozoacides?  There's hundreds of chemicals  available in one catalogue."  Francis   says   health    is  monitored continuously at all  stages of fish production. But y  Dawe disputes that, noting that j  there is only one inspector for ,j  the'whole south coast division'!!?  (mostly the Sunshine Coast), \  covering almost 50 hatcheries  and 178 netpen sites.  He says with the trend  towards bigger and bigger farms  it is less likely that technicians  have close enough contact with  fish to detect sickness.  Dawe says there isn't proper  equipment available to monitor  antibiotics and there are few  MISC SERVICES  MISC SERVICES  COMPLETE LANOSCAPE SERVICE  Designing, Turl. etc.  Free Estimates  BARK MULCH -97n  15 vds. delivered In Sechelt *-.��**  6,7' & 8' GOLDEN  HEDGING EVERGREENS"  s3����/ft.

But Dawe says  the only time a Waste Management Permit is needed is when  farms produce at least 650 tonnes of fish annually.  "And it's impossible to trace  anything," Dawe explains. He  says in justifying the waste they  produce some aquaculture companies are like pulp mills which  demand proof from environmentalists that someone  has died of dioxins.  "But any scientist with half a  brain has to add the factors up  and say this is too much of a  risk to deal with."  Dawe says the only safe way  to rear fish is in tanks on land,  filtering and treating the effluent. He says at least 20 per  cent of feed goes to the sea bottom, along with fish feces, a  porridge-like matter containing  "a whole host of diseased  pathogens."  In some cases this toxic  sludge builds up to a metre deep  where it is consumed by other  sea-life.  Francis acknowledges that  pens in shallow water with poor  currents can cause a build-up of  sediments that can smother bottom creatures. But she says  when this happens a "fallow  period" is initiated.  "If you looked at the proliferation of life on the sides of  net pens you would realize that  the wastes coming out of the  pens is not killing the environment," says Francis.

INDUSTRIES ltd  (or Septic Tank Pumping  p Ask For Lucky Larry 886-7Q64p  $.  m  &>  tion used in net-washing operations can in fact kill fish and  other sea life. In May of this  year Daw says a test of the  waters in Wood Bay showed  39.2 miligrams of copper per  litre which he says came from  net-washing.  Francis says charges by critics  that fish farming leads to  genetic pollution are a  smokescreen.  "Of course it is imperative  that wild salmon river runs  maintain a large natural genetic  pool. But problems of inbreeding in salmon runs stems  not so much from farmed fish  escapees returning to spawn as  from overfishing, from salmon  habitat destruction and from  salmonid enhancement projects  which can enhance only a small  percentage of the river.  "These factors have led to  reduced genetic selection long  before salmon farming became  popular. Besides this, geneticists  at the Pacific Bioligical Station  have shown that third generation farmed salmon are virtually  the same genetically as wild  salmon."  But Dawe says in Norway  genetic pollution and environmental waste are considered serious enough problems that stringent restrictions  on   farm   location,   size   and  amount of foreign ownership  have been implemented. "U  "Where's   all   this   stuff��  (disease) coming from?, "Dawe*  asks. It's not just popping ou��|  of nowhere. It's because fish are  being transferred all over they  world." *  Dawe also takes issue with*  the industry argument that fish *  farming feeds the masses.*  "Number one, it's a whitej1  table-cloth market if they expect  to make it pay." ���  He says the industry exag-J  gerates    the    number    ofj  aquaculture jobs for many of*  them   are   cyclical,   but   not*  predictable.   He   says   for   a.*  million   dollar's   worth   of^,  salmon caught by a seiner the$  crew's share is $125,000 each:**  For the same amount of farm-  reared   fish   total   wages   are?  $120,000. ?  "The    difference    is,    in?  aquaculture (capital) is tied up \  in   infrastructure,   promotion?  and feed. And the profits are  going back to multi-nationaft;  companies   and   Norwegian^  banks." \  Dawe says approximately 503  per cent of aquaculture produc- j  tion is in the hands of four com-1  panies and each year corporate��  control increases. And he ex-*  pects with a lot of small opera-*  tions collapsing, that figure  could reach 85 per cent.  New   lottery  Punto Select, the sports lottery for professional hockey  1 and US football, premieres October 1 at lottery retail outlets  throughout British Columbia  displaying the Punto sign.  "It's been a long time coming, but we're very pleased with  the game structure," said Barry  Auliffe, director of marketing  for the lottery corporation.  "When it comes to sports lotteries, our research tells us that  people are particularly interested in who won and by how  much. Punto Select enables the  sports lottery fan to make that  decision," Auliffe said. "As  with all of the lotteries played in  BC, we are offering the lottery  fan variety for his money. Punto Select will feature professional hockey and US football  games."  Punto Select tickets cost $2  per board, with three boards on  each selection slip. The selection  slip for football will list six US  football games played on Sun- >  day afternoons. The Punto j  Select player selects which team ���  will win - visitor or home and by *  how many points, choosing |  from the five point spread (0 to J  4 - which also indicates a tie, 5  to 8, 9 to 13, 14 to 19, 20 plus). \  The selection slip for hockey |  lists six professional hockey j  games played on Saturday even- ��  ings. For each hockey game, the *  Punto Select player chooses \  which team will win - visitor or \  home and by how many goals (0 j  goals - to indicate a tie, 1,2,3 >  goals or 4 plus goals). )  In the case of a tie, the selec- |  tion of either team to win with  {  an '0' point spread is correct. J  Players must match the exact-  point spread. *v  The object is to match the  outcomes of all six games correctly, although you can get  three wrong and still win $5.  Match four and five games and  win a bigger share of the prizes.

Coast News, September 25,1989  Rhythms  by Penny Fuller  North Americans tend to be  obsessed    with   prettiness.  ; Everybody wants pretty clothes,  ; pretty   homes,   pretty   people  around them and pretty lives.  ��� One of the major miracles of  the last couple of years was the  .'��� acceptance   of   a   physically  .blemished   super   star   -  Gor-  . bachev   -   by   the   American  ; masses,   a   hopeful   indication  ; that, as a people, we're maturing.  While we've all been shaped  by the media moguls who  shouldered the awesome task of  defining our social sensibilities,  there are some of us who are  more malleable than others.  in  People born when the Sun is  Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  #m%  *4L D\*  seem to absorb social expectations through their pores from  the time they're born.  Libra is the sign of both the  general and the peacemaker,"  and this sensitivity to social expectations and social dynamics  assists them in either of these  roles. It's a wonder full tool.  The danger to you, if you're a  Libran, is that it may cease to be  a useful tool and begin to dictate the way you interact with  the world.  At one time it was probably  necessary for social survival to  restrict your behaviour to what  was acceptable, especially during your teen years. The trouble  is, at this time and in this part of  the world, there is such diversity  and such constant change in  social   expectations,   you   can  wrap yourself into tiny knots if  you keep on trying to 'do what's  right' by other people's standards.  Your challenge is to find your  own centre and create harmony  within yourself irregardless of  the momentary social doctrines  that surround you.  Think of any beautiful symphony. Before various instruments blend in harmony,,  there has to be one clear theme  around which the other  melodies wrap themselves.  You need to experience your  own inner song before you can  create harmony around you.  Your external experience will  flow naturally from your internal reality.  Of course you need some  quiet time alone to connect with  that inner beauty, and you may  find it difficult to take any time  for yourself. Between time and  energy spent with friends and  family, spouses and community  groups, children and coworkers there really isn't a lot of  time left. And you probably  don't feel any sort of need to be  alone. As a matter of fact you  may hate being alone.  If you settle for the social  whirl, you are likely to find  yourself caught up in 'pretty'  appearances and social facades  that will crumble in time, leaving you emotionally devastated.  A healthier approach would be  to spend time developing the  more stable, permanent 'beauty' within. Try to set aside a  block of time each week to  spend by yourself - even if its  Sunshine Coast Regional District  only a few hours.  It can be done in the middle  of a busy home, too, if space is  a problem. Invest in a set of  good headphones and some  classical tapes, then plug  yourself in and let your mind  wander until it quietly settles.  Assign yourself a weekly walk  in a park, job or reserve time in  a floatation tank.  By giving this time to  yourself, you will find the self-  confidence to make decisions in  your life without worrying  about what other people think.  The bonus is, you'll find out  they think you're great.

.'v.. .-i^W ry  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  PARLIAMENT BIULDINGS.  \Y>f  Allegations from construction workers building the new  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  mill (HSPP) at Port Mellon that  chlorine-gas leaks were making  them sick and dizzy and prone  to nose bleeds and chest pains  kept' approximately 60 iron  workers off the site for most of  last week.  And, in separate but similar  incidents, workers claiming that  their; upper camp site, situated  where the old town used to be,  was "hazardous to their  health," evoked section 8-24 of  \] % v V n -- -ipensation  Board (WCB) against the camp  and refused to stay in there until  the WCB has monitored the  site.  In the latter incident, the  WCB didn't find anything,  HSPP General Manager, Capital Projects, Harry Cargo told  the Coast News.  "A lot of people were relieved," he said.  BC and Yukon Building  Trades Council President Len  Werden told the Coast News,  however, that representatives  from the union had visited the  HSPP site on Wednesday to address the problem.  "We measured for gases  around the upper camp site and  while we didn't find chlorine  gas," he said, "we found a low  oxygen measurement which  means some chemical is displacing the oxygen."  Because of these alleged  finds, HSPP are having a  monitoring system to measure  all gases - chlorine, chlorine  dioxide, H2X and sulphur dioxide - installed at the camp,  Cargo said.  Two independent companies,  Western Research and Bruce  Levelton Associates were slated  to begin testing on Sunday.  \ Cargo told the Coast News  y the problems in regards to last  i week's incidents of alleged  \ chlorine-gas leaks began shortly  \ after Labour Day when the mill  \ switched over to its new 'high  substitution' mode which is intended to eliminate dioxins in  ��� the mill's effluent. There were  some chlorine gas leaks then,  Cargo said, but they were found  and worked out.  Each time there was even the  hint of chlorine gas, Cargo said,  the site was evacuated.  "The system has settled down  and is running very well now,"  he said.  The Sunshine  Cargo said the contractors  were not using the prescribed  respirators, however, and added  that 15 per cent of those  workers who had visited first  aid with problems afterwards  had not been using the equipment which is meant to be put  on at the first hint of a gas leak.  According to Cargo, statistics  over the last six months show  only four cases of nose bleeds,  two of which were suffered by  one worker who has since left  the mill.  He summed up the problem  on the site by saying a good  system was in place but the safe  ty education program and the  indoctrination program must  apparently be re-instituted.  "All employees on site,  managers, superintendents,  everybody, are being put  through the indoctrination program again," Cargo said. "A  lot of the problem Oast week)  was fear. People didn't know  what to do when they smelled  gas."  Cargo called Wednesday's  meeting between HSPP and the  union, with the WCB attending,  "tough" but said, "it put the  whole thing out on the table and  will get it cleared up."  Published on the Sunshine Coast 25* per copy on news stands       OctOber2,1989       Volume43        Issue40  Ian MacCulloch took some time off from his job as timekeeper at Port Mellon mill to enjoy some fine  windsurfing at Davis Bay last week. ���Dave Fraser photo  SCRD calls for  impact study  by Dave Fraser.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) is requesting  that a full, independent environmental impact assessment  of the proposed changes at Port  Mellon mill be completed  before Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper (HSPP) increases production.  The SCRD voted unanimously in favour of the motion  Thursday night at its regular  board meeting, after hearing a  presentation from Ann Hillyer,  a lawyer with the West Coast  Environmental Law Association (WCELA).  In a written brief presented to  the board, Hillyer states it is  essential the public be fully informed of the potential en-  '^itonmental impact priottc^ap^  plications being granted and  "has had an opportunity to fully review and comment on the  environmental impact of the applications."  Hillyer says the association,  which represents labour, consumers, women's, outdoor and  environmental groups, feels it is  important "the proposed  amendments to the Port Mellon  permits be carefully scrutinized  and, where necessary, modified  in order to protect Howe Sound  and to provide a model standard both for the Port Mellon  mill and for other pulp mills  - whose permits will be amended  in the future."  At a recent meeting the  SCRD Planning Committee  voted to recommend acceptance  of HSPP's applications for  amendments to its waste  management permit which the  company says will enable them  to facilitate a more rapid implementation of its pollution  reduction plans.  At Thursday's meeting Area  A Director Gordon Wilson said  the SCRD's call for an environmental impact assessment  was at odds with the planning  committee's recent endorsement  of the mill's request to boost its  pollution levels until new pollution control equipment are installed.  But Area E Director Jim  Gurney said that although  HSPP's amended permits may  result in stepped-up discharge,  levels until the mill expansion is  completed, it was a "short term  loss for a long term gain."  Dangerous cargo should sail  separate says BC Ferry workers  by Dave Fraser  The Sunshine Coast needs  dangerous cargo sailings.  Without them accidents are  waiting to happen on the Queen  of Cowichan.  The warning comes from  members of the BC Ferry  Workers Union who met last  week with Area A Director Gordon Wilson.  The ferry workers are insufficiently staffed to deal with a fire  or explosion on deck and, at the  same time, evacuate passengers,  Wilson told the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  at its meeting last Thursday.  Wilson suggested the Howe  Sound Queen or similar vessel  could be dedicated dangerous  cargo runs. He also suggested a  truck inspection station could  be set up next to ferry terminals  and appropriate stickers placed  on vehicles carrying dangerous  cargos to let ferry crews know  what to expect.  The BC Ferry Corporation  has stated there is insufficient  dangerous cargo going to the  Sunshine Coast to warrant a  designated sailing, Wilson ex  plained.  Wilson also expressed concerns about the lack of a second  docking facility at Langdale. He  said BC Ferries has indicated  there is no money in its budget  to repair the damaged dock at  Langdale until 1991.  He said the situation is  serious because if the remaining  dock was not functioning and  the highway to Earl's Cove  ferry terminal was inoperable  there would be no way to  evacuate the Coast in the event  of an earthquake or other  natural disaster.  the SCRD referred the matter to the Provincial Emergency  Plan. As well, letters will be sent  to BC Ferries co. icerning both  matters.  ^ty&$^?0\ $���_.<��? ^  He said the Port Mellon mill  should not be taken in isolation  from other pulp mills in the province, some of which are worse  violators of waste management  branch standards.  Hillyer warned that in the  past HSPP has not complied  with its pollution control standards. She suggested the mill  post financial security on the  condition the company would  forfeit this money if it failed to  comply with conditions of the  permits.  Any money forfeited under  this provision would be used for  environmental projects.  She suggested HSPP be required to compensate for the  environmental damage it has  caused in the past, charging that  HSPP and Woodfibre, the  other pulp mill on Howe  Sound, have caused dioxin and  furan pollution, leading to the  closure of shrimp, crab and  prawn fisheries in the Sound.  Hillyer noted a high level of  public concern exists about the  pollution which has caused  these environmental problems.  She called for independent  monitoring of the mill's operations. Such monitoring - of effluent flow, air emissions and  ph levels - should be paid for by  the company.  Currently, monitoring is done  almost exclusively by the permittee.  against ratepayers  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson voiced a spirited defence  of his record in serving the  Pender Harbour community at  a meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  Thursday in response to recent  allegations made towards him in  a Ratepayers Report distributed  by the Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association  (PHDRA) last week.  Wilson said the one page  message sent out to all residents  of Area A was inaccurate and  inflammatory and "distorts and  undermines" work being done  by the Area A Planning Commission.  "I stand by what's in that  report," said PHDRA President Joe Harrison when contacted by the Coast News,  Saturday. "It's no secret why  the Ratepayer's Association is  in existence again. It is Mr.  Wilson. He is entitled to his  point of view but not to continually attack the person."  Harrison said since starting to  attend regular SCRD board  meetings in June, he has been  "attacked personally" by  Wilson.  Harrison also accuses Wilson  of denying everyone an opportunity for input into the Farrington Cove Marina proposal  by holding public meetings in  Sechelt.

Area A Director Gordon Wilson announced at last Thursday's meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District that an  agreement was recently signed between the SCRD and Area  A, handing over the parcel, which includes a 30-acre lake with  an artificial beach. The park is located due north of Garden  Bay Lake.  Kites for Peace  The Fourth Annual One Sky, One World, International  Kite Fly for Peace will take place on Sunday, October 8. This  event is to promote the concept of global harmony and  understanding between all people through the iniversally  ���loved kite, flying in the air we share.  Since the first festival in 1986 an estimated 100,000 people  have launched their kites in hundreds of locations to promote  world peace. In addition to the kite fly in Sechelt* people on  eight continents are expected to take part this ye%r.  On the Coast the event will take place from 2 to 4 pm at  Chatelech Secondary School and everyone is invited to come  to fly kites, to picnic or to just enjoy the show.
