Political barriers, actual and mental, have been coming down in the  Soviet Union and Eastern Europe with such rapidity  that minds long used to the grey, stone coldness of the  Cold War have been left floundering in the wake of  events.  A very real effect of these changes, still  unassimilated, must be the fact that the likelihood of  nuclear global war is, for the first time in more than 40  years, beginning to recede. What more welcome  manifestation could there be to gladden our hearts at  this traditional season when we wish Peace and Goodwill for all mankind.  The cause of Peace and Goodwill towards all has a  vast distance to travel, yet, if it is to encompass all of  this world in its stated intent, the lessening of tensions  between the so-called super powers notwithstanding.  All over the world there are vast pockets of terrible  poverty and active military madness still in full control  in this Christmas season.  Here too, however, the rapidity with which change  can actually take place when its time has come must be  heartening. Perhaps by next Christmas there will be further lessening in this world of 'man's inhumanity to  man' whether that inhumanity is expressed in terrible  poverty or military massacre.  We must give thanks for the amazing improvements  that have taken place and be resolved to keep our concerns for the welfare of all steadfast in the coming year.  The message of the Prince of Peace, whose birth we  celebrate, was intended for all and there are millions yet  who live not in peace and know not good will at the hands  of their fellows. May the message spread.  Happy New Year  The 80's as a package, as a decade that has been, is  about to be wrapped up and soon we will be innundated  with that particular type of television documentary  dedicated to summing things up.  These clipped visual dissertations will tell us, of course,  what exactly has been going on, these past 10 years, with  the world and her folk. It is perhaps a fair comment on the  decade we are exiting that, in this case, television with its  short 'bites' and encapsulating style, can tell it best.  So heads up as we step into the 90's, warily perhaps and  less sure of our footing. The past decade has been a swan  song of sorts for human hedonism. Perhaps in the New  Year we can begin a new chorus more in harmony with  each other and in tune with our weary planet.  Happy New Year!  *V <���> OC\\\WC- <���  ' ���"WV.w^.SW*  J  5 YEARS AGO  In an historic move destined to make the Sechelt Indian Band the first self-governing Indian band in all of  Canada, Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs David  Crombie has appointed members to the 12-man Sechelt  Self-Government Transition Team:  10 YEARS AGO  In a letter to the editor John Duffle is "puzzled by the  word 'warfare'. It means something evil when it allows a  widow to feed her children, but when it amounts to a  billion dollars and is paid to Chrysler Motors, it's apparently good for all of us."  The Coast News astrologer's general notes for the  week: "Venus moves into Aquarius, a perfect Christmas  transit, indicating strong humanitarian feelings and a  willingness to share, forgive and forget.  20 YEARS AGO  Fire completely destroyed the home of Magistrate  and Mrs. Charles C. Mittlesteadt while they were on  holiday in the United States recently.  30 YEARS AGO  A freak windstorm on December 13 brought a large  cedar crashing down on the home of Mr. & Mrs. Frank  White of Madeira Park. The tree shattered the roof over  a room wherein 14 year old Howie White and six year old  Donnie were sleeping, covering the youngsters with  debris. 40 YEARS AGO  An example of heroism in its most unselfish form was  available in Sechelt last week. Eighty year old, crippled  John Craigson crawled more than 80 yards on his hands  and knees to rescue two small grandchildren trapped inside a blazing home. Flames were rapidly engulfing the  house by the time Mr. Craigson reached it but despite  the leaping flames and his condition he was able to  drag the two youngsters to safety. He was severely  scorched in the rescue.  The Sunshine  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

The date of Christmas, after all,  coincides closely with the winter  solstice, a time of rejoicing  among many ancient cultures  happy to be past the shortest  day of the year and therefore in  the home stretch towards Spring. In Australia, however, allis  topsy-turvy.  In Australia, Christmas falls  smack in the middle of sumrner  which  means  that,  in  many  parts of the country, it is so hot  the Christmas turkey caod*!^}  bakedjjoutside on the sidew&k. 1^.  spent   two   such   scorc1jj[ng4j  Yuletides   in   Perth,   Western j  Australia. Those were the years '  when Santa came visiting, tanned and fit and wearing a singlet  and a pair of shorts.  We sailed to Perth in 1974  out of Genoa, Italy, on one of  the last of the big immigrant  ships going to Australia. The  Suez Canal was closed, of  course, so we sailed south down  the length of Africa, around the  Cape and out across a grey and  rolling Indian Ocean. The trip  took 33 days and we ate bean  soup and pan-fried potatoes at  every meal.  It was July 7 when we docked  at Freemantle and made our  way 12 miles inland to Perth  and it was cold. Unbelieveably  cold. But by the time Christmas  rolled around, it was unbelievably hot!  Our first Australian Christmas fell in the middle of a  record-breaking dry spell - 120  days without rain. And December 25 itself was a record-  breaker of sorts. It was in the  middle of 10 straight days when  the temperature reached 44  degrees centigrade during the  day, dropping down to around  37 at night.  The Perth Public Works  came by our house and ploughed around the vacant lot next  door. When I asked why, they  patiently explained it was to  contain any fire that might  result from the spontaneous  combustion of the long grass in  the field. Sure enough, eight  days into the heat wave, the  field burned. :  Naturally, the Australians be- \  ing an especially hardy bunch,  Christmas came as usual that _  year inspite of the heat, and  with all the fanfare devoted to it  in other countries. We had a  parade with marching bands  and girls twirling batons and  looking cool in skimpy costumes; there was a float with  oldtimers on it boiling up their  billy can and old St. Nick  himself sitting on a wagon with  an electric fan to blow his  whiskers about and keep the  flies off.  Keeping the flies off is an  essential ingredient to Western  Australian life; the great  Australian salute being, of  course, a wave of the hand in  front of the face in an effort to  accomplish just that. The  oldtimers have the right idea.  They tie string weighted down  with corks around the rim of  their hats. The constant bobbing will keep even the most  tenacious of Aussie bush fly at  bay.  Anyway, keeping the flies off  was even more important that  hot, dry year because there was  a plague of them. Bush flies and  blow flies straight out of the  Pandora's Box of the European  impact on that island continent.  But in spite of the vicissitudes  of our first Australian  Christmas, Santa Claus did  make it all the way from the  North Pole, down our chimney,  which had definitely not been  used for a long time, and into  our house. He left beach toys  instead of skates, bathing suits  instead of mittens but it all still  felt very much like Christmas. It  was a good one, mates!  The Oxen  Christmas Eve, and twelve of the clock.  'Now they are all on their knees*,  An elder said as we sat in a flock  By the embers in hearthside ease.  We pictured: the'meek mild creatures where  They dwelt in their strawy pen,  Nor did it occur to one of us there  To doubt they were kneeling then.  So fair a fancy few would weave  In these years! Yet, I feel,  If someone said on Christmas Eve,  'Come; see the oxen kneel,  'In the lonely barton by yonder coomb  Our childhood used to know,'  / should go with him in the gloom,  Hoping it might be so.  Thomas Hardy  A wonderful Christmas  by Bev Cranston  It was Vancouver in the late  1950's and it was getting close  to Christmas, just a few more  days. I was about seven years  old then and on one of those  days my mother gave me some  great news.  My oldest brother, who was  at least 22 at this time and who  was one of those much loved  but seldom seen siblings, was  going to be home for Christmas. I was overjoyed. My biggest brother, who was more like  a father to me, was going to be  home for Christmas!  As soon as I heard this great  news, I reflected on his last visit.  To me it seemed like eons ago. I  can't recall how long it had  been. All I knew was that he  was totally different from my  two other older brothers, who  chased me, picked on me, called  me horrendous names, got me  into endless trouble with my  stem and very strict father and  beat on my head with their  knuckles until I screamed for  mercy.  My one and only sister who  was about 19 at the time wasn't  thrilled about the news of our  brother's visit. I think she was  annoyed because all her girlfriends were so eager to be  noticed by her handsome black-  haired and blue-eyed adult  brother.  His name was Dave and he  was so wonderful to me. He was  kind, gentle and loving. He  didn't try to cause trouble for  me. He thought I was the cat's  pajamas. Why, he even let me  play his records (Elvis was my  favourite), played boogie  woogie on the piano for me,  gave me books, and get this,  even took my friends and I for  rides in his shiney new two-tone  Buick with all that gorgeous  chrome.  When the night before  Christmas arrived and Dave still  wasn't home, I became very  concerned. "He'll be here", my  mother said. "I know he'll be  here.*' My father disagreed.  "It's just like him to not show."  As it turned out, in the middle of the night, my brother  Dave arrived. He was late, but  still he arrived. He had probably been partying with his  friends. Unbeknownst to my  father, Dave crawled" in a basement window, quietly crept  upstairs not wanting to awaken  the household, and stealthily  crept over to the tree in the  front room.  He was just bending over the  presents with a shiney, new  toaster for the family to tuck  among the gifts, when my  father who had heard rumours  of break and entries going on in  the neighbourhood, heard unfamiliar squeaks on the basement steps. He grabbed the  baseball bat he had been keeping for just such an occasion  near his bed, and crept through  the darkness to the front room.  There he saw "a figure of a  man hunched over our Christmas presents. Ah-ha! I've got  the crook! he thought to  himself. As he crept near this  terrible villain, Dave turned just  in time to yell, "Don't! It's me,  Dad".  Well, what a commotion  after that. My father was angry  with my brother for being late  and sneaking into the house;  Dave was upset he was going to  get a baseball bat over the head;  all the rest of us kids were  beside ourselves with the excitement of Chrisimas Eve, Santa  and big brother; and my poor  mother was unbelievably overjoyed with the sight of her first  and most precious baby.  It was total bedlam. How we  ever got to sleep again that  Christmas Eve, 1'U never know.  But what a joy it was to be all  together, our whole family,  even if we seemed to have our  little differences.  This was the only time I can  remember all five kids lining up  Christmas morning from  youngest to oldest at the kitchen  door to rush into the front room  in anticipation of Christmas, on  the command of our now happy  father.  It was the most wonderful  Christmas I can recall.  .!:)  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  l ���  j   ;    , ���  1   i    .  <  c Coast News, December 18,1989  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  To the Western Canada  Wilderness Committee  They say people get maddest  at the ones they like, which is'  why I am mad at you. As a  fellow environmentalist I deeply  resent your big, expensive 'free'  flyer, 'Stop the Killing of Howe  Sound NOW.'  Yes, the governments have  been terribly lenient with industries and yes, pulp and paper  plants are polluters and yes,  something must be done. That  is all so easy to prove with facts.  So why twist figures? Why  distort facts? Why print  misleading maps? That flyer  seemed actually trying to set  people at each other's throats  with angry half-truths. For example:  Page 1 suggested the fish-  contaminating dioxins are still  being dumped. They're not.  Page 2 implied the mills knew  for years they were dumping  toxic dioxins. No-one knew until 1985/86. Page 3 said mills  should shut down so they can  install their environment protec-,  ting equipment faster. It's going  in at top speed now and will be  working at Port Mellon by July.  Page 4 really bit the pits with  its big lung cancer maps. It  pretended to show a link between pulp mills and lung  cancer. But did it? No extra  cancer around the mills of Crofton, Quesnel, Rupert, Port  Alberni, Port Alice (a real  polluter for years), Ocean Falls,  or even Powell River.  Lots of lung cancer in remote  Tweedsmuir Park and away up  the head of Bute Inlet.  The whole thing looked like  an effort to cash in on people's  fears as a short cut to coilecting  donations and prestige. It hurt  your reputation and mine too.  Most environmentalists don't  take that kind of short cut. We  take pains with our research.  We're terrified of having our  careful conclusions lumped with  careless 'scare headlines' and  discredited with them. Most of  us, too, are trying to build  positive co-operation, not just  attack industry.  Won't you please change tactics and 'Stop the Killing of Cooperation NOW'.  Iris E. Griffith  Egmont, BC  Let's save something for the future  Editor:  I have been concerned about  jthe fate of the Carmanah Valley  on BC's West Coast for some  time. We are on the brink of  losing this ancient forest to logging and I wanted to see for  myself just what was at stake.  I travelled there this summer  over what seemed like endless  bumpy, dusty logging roads. At  first I was shocked then sickened, by mile after mile of complete devastation; crushed and  broken trees, choked and bulldozed streams, not one living  green thing in sight.  Logging has been speeded up  since the public is becoming  more aware of what they are  about to lose, and the clear-cut  devastation extends right to the  edge of Carmanah. We were  stopped and checked at a logging gate as we entered the Carmanah area and I felt like we  were leaving a war zone.  Despite the bone-jarring trip,  I was surprised to see that many  cars were already there and that  there were hundreds of names  on the guest hiker book.  At last we descended into the  valley through moss clung trees  and ferns and I felt that I was  moving back through time.  Many of the trees around me  had been living centuries before  Europeans even discovered this  area. Standing at the base of the  giant trees I felt a great spiritual  presence, like under the arches  of a huge cathedral.  We took our photos, dwarfed  by the magnitude of the giant  trunks and my heart recalled  Notice to Holiday  Travellers  On Christmas Day and New Year's Day, the first sailings to  and from the Sunshine Coast have been cancelled. This will  allow as many of our employees as possible to spend time with  their families.  The cancelled .sailings are as follows:  Lv. Langdale        6:20 amli-   Lv. Horseshoe Bay 7:30 am  Lv. Saltery Bay     5:45 am   -   Lv. Earls Cove        6:40 am  Over the busy holiday season, allow extra travel time to the  terminals, and look for traffic controllers to help you get where  you're going.  From all of us at BC Ferries, have a very happy holiday.  O BCFGRRIGS  Your Friendship Fleet  (Schedule subject to change without notice.)  SAVE |  This Christmas  Give the  Gift of  Leather  with sadness the many photos  I'd seen of dozens of old-time  loggers lined up on the stump of  a fallen giant.  Carmanah is one of the last  remaining ancient forests and if  it is logged, future generations  will be left with only photographs as these great trees will  never grow again. Although"  there is a proposal to preserve a  small portion of the valley  floor, clear-cut logging of the  upper slopes will destroy the  valley through flooding, erosion  and Slowdown.  A timely  toast  Editor:  It's that time of year we all   .  should be merry  And toast one another with   ,  beer, wine or sherry.

But in truth, I've been told, that  the fact is,  The thing they really want most  are those taxes.  Then they send to the streets  all their good men in blue  To man hundreds of road  blocks all set to trap you;  They have "festive" balloons  for you to blow up,  And a truck you can sit in in  case you throw up,  They can't catch a robber, a  rapist or mugger  But you haven't a chance if  you're a poor chug-a-lugger.

Thank yon for your  X^"   support this year  ��  z  A_,  V  &  9  by Dave Fraser  With waste disposal costs on  the rise and space running out at  the local landfill, the Sunshine  Coast Economic Development  Commission (EDC) feels a community compost scheme is an  idea well worth looking at.  Economic Development Officer Bill Moore, who suggested  the proposal at the EDC's  December 11 meeting, says a  similar scheme in Ryley, Alberta is very successful and received  lots of cooperation from the  community.  All com post able materials,  such as kitchen and garden  waste, are put in biodegradable  bags and hauled to the landfill  where the material is composted. Townspeople are then  invited to help themselves tb the  compost which they use on their  gardens or lawns.  Moore said such a scheme  could work well on the Sunshine  Coast. It was also suggested  that operating costs could be  recouped by marketing the product locally and off the Coast.  Moore pointed out that a mbrt  (dead fish) composting scheme,  currently in operation at the  Sechelt landfill, is about ready  to produce its first batch of  marketable fertilizer product.  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Director Jim Gurney  said it was timely for a community composting scheme as  government tightens up controls  on waste disposal and landfill  space is expected to be strained  to capacity as the population  swells on the Coast. He said the  price of waste disposal is on the  rise with an expected cost of  5485,000 this coming year, compared to 5298,000 in 1987.  EDC member Kay Bailey said  the success of the Shop Easy  recycling program in Sechelt  demonstrated a keen interest in  recycling by the community.  She warned, however, that the  Ryley experience has shown that  biodegradable bags do not  break.. down as quickly as ex-  ���       ���-���;;    . --��������� ���,'    N7*1  ��.;,   y#  f   ���   )& **    -  '  pected, which requires them to  be exposed to sunlight.

And note the plaque on the pen  fence 'Donated by Christie  Dickson...reared by hand.'.  Doug Dickson of Shoal  Lookout in Gibsons provided  this story of the orphan moose  calf that arrived one night at the  door of his son's cabin near  Topley Landing on Babine  Lake.  The family dog, a golden  retriever named Buck Owen,  usually plucky enough to  challenge a b��ar, rushed into the  cabin one night in utter fright  and crawled under the bed.  Right on it��. heels tottered a  gangly tangle of red fur which  tried without success to get  under the bed as well.  This was the introduction of  Molly Moose, orphaned by a  poacher, to David Dickson, his  wife Sue and new baby Christie.  The calf was very hungry and  had hopefully expected Buck  Owen to provide sustenance.  A rich mix of baby Christie's  formula disappeared in a couple  of pulls from a makeshift bottle. Desperate telephone calls  later on to UBC and other  animal care agencies revealed to  David and Sue that the closest  formula to real moose milk is a  blend of goat's milk and  bananas.  Despite the expense and difficulty of obtaining these ingredients, and despite strong advice  to get rid of the calf altogether,  the young couple determined to  do everything they could to rear  Molly.  Molly Moose and Buck Owen  became close friends. Baby  Christie, fascinated by the  strange animal, sometimes rode  hobbyhorse on Molly's back  - with her mom's help.  Despite gloomy forecasts to  the contrary by others, the baby  moose thrived and grew, and  grew. As the news spread,  visitors came in droves from  near and far, some travellers  from Germany among them.  And Molly soon learned to pose  for their cameras like a ham actor.  But as Molly grew so did her  appetite and her tastes.  Neighbouring gardens made  splendid browsing but led to  muttered threats to her well-  being.  With the approach of the  next hunting season the family  had to face the fact the near-  yearling calf was an easy target  for a hunting rifle. Easy target  for an animal that looked upon  humans as her kind of people.  After much family discussion, and some tears, Molly was  offered to the game farm, an  offer the farm immediately accepted because it had no cow  moose.  Now Molly will bring some  pleasure to visitors who would  never otherwise see a moose.  And David and Sue will affectionately remember their baby  moose which a kind fate had  once brought to their door one  night.  There's a postscript, unconfirmed, that Molly is now in a  zoo in Australia, traded for an  Australian camel. Enquire when  you visit Penticton.  FASHIONS  A fashion seminar sponsored  by the Ladies' Guild of St.  Mary's Church met with an enthusiastic response from the  more than 100 people attending.

It may be nothing more than a case of sweaty palms and  butterflies in your stomach as you announce yourself to the  receptionist' Or it may be a terror that keeps you away from  the dentist year after year despite your aching, disintegrating  teeth and receding gums.  However bad you've got it, you're not alone. Approximately  one million Canadians, suffer from full-blown dentalphobia -a  fear of denial procedures so acute that they never go to the  dentist. A fan greater number suffer from dental anxiety ��� a  fear that ke^ps them out of the dentist's chair until the pain of  dental disease forces them into it. At that point, more extensive, uncomfortable dental work will be required - further reinforcing patients' fear of visiting the dental office.  Most commonly, dental phobia develops at an early age  and is due to expectations of an unpleasant early experience  created by family members. The procedures people fear most  are having'a tooth drilled and having anaesthetic injected.  Fortunately, dentists have many new techniques at hand to  help fight dental phobia. Chief among them are the many new  painless procedures and instruments - like high-speed drills  and super-accurate, single:tooth anaesthesia - which have  replaced older, more painful techniques. Today, prior to  anaesthetic injections, a numbing solution can be applied on  the gum by aerosol spray, Q-tip or gauze.  Dentists can use mild sedatives to calm particularly overanxious patients before treating them and many are now using techniques developed by clinical psychologists to help  overcome patient fears. These can involve special relaxation  exercises to help patients remain calm, hypnosis, and  distraction techniques designed to take the patient's mind  off what (the dentist is doing.  In one experiment dentists installed video screens on their  ceilings and video-game controls on the arms of their chairs.  Patients got so involved in the game that they forgot about  what the dentist was doing (except to complain when he or  she got in the way!).  What should you do if you have dental phobia or anxiety?  The best thing is to make a consultation appointment with  your dentist and talk frankly to him or her about your fears.  Dentists today are much more than just mechanical cavity  fillers: they are professionals trained in caring. Very often just  talking about your anxieties with your dentist will be all you  need tp.dp to relieve them.  This column is provided by the Canadian Dental Association.

Coast News, December 18,1989  environment conference  by Rose Nicholson  i  i*  c.  r  t  i  r.  Students and teachers who attended an environmental conference in Nelson recently came  away convinced that the condition of the environment will be  the most critical issue of the  1990's.  At the December 12 meeting  of the school board, Joan Ter-  muende, teacher at Chatelech,  quoted David Suzuki's words,  "The 90s's have been designated the turnaround decade in  our fight to save a now fragile  biosphere. And who are most at  stake in what happens in those  10 years? Not politicians, not  businessmen, but today's young  people."  The importance of doing  something, rather than just  talking about it, has now  become a committment for the  students and their teachers.  "I understand now", said  Tasha Silver, "that by the time  I'm an adult, the world will not  be able to sustain the current  rate of consumption."  \  ! /  \  /  \  Season's  >��}>> (.��*&.

Wiseman, who lost her right  arm to cancer in 1983, and the  50 other amputees who attended  the seminar at the end of October in Vancouver, are all  members of the Association's  Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program.  The seminars, running two  and a half days in length, provide a forum in which  CHAMPS and their parents can  meet other families who share  common concerns.  "I had a really good time,"  Wiseman told the Coast News  adding that, she had never really  wanted to attend a seminar  before because she never knew  what they were about. "I found  it very beneficial and my  Mother did too.  "Everybody was the same so  nobody gawked or anything!"  As Miss Gibsons, Wiseman  recently participated in the  Elves Club Telethon and in the  opening of the Gibsons Legion  bazaar and she hopes to be at- c  tending the winter festival in  Vernon, in February.

V0N1V0  Telephone 886-8121  In Roberts Creek  by Bev Cranston  Take a walk down to what is  supposed to be a Regional Park  at the mouth of Roberts Creek.  On a 360 degree radius I can't  seem to focus my eyes on one  section that doesn't have at least  one eyesore to look at.  Maybe if you had total tunnel  vision you could see a flawless,  natural view.  It looks to me as if some  monster has been trying to build  the 'great wall of China' at our  already miniscule park. The  propane tanks are bad enough,  actually the worst, but the  monstrosities with their gigantic  and endless retaining walls are a  pretty close second.  The old wooden bridge which  crossed the creek wasn't heavy  duty enough to withstand the  weight of commerical vehicles,  namely the propane trucks, for  much longer. But at least the  bridge was tastefully done and  isn't painful to look at.  The latest landfill and retainer wall has not only taken  part of the beach away, along  with a good portion of the driftwood, but the natural slope  with the ever-disappearing  beach grass and wild sweet peas  are gone, to be replaced with  eight to 10 foot high fill and unnatural looking rocks, pushed  out flat to a precise point, I suppose where the white stake  belongs.  According to the Department  of Highways, they have nothing  to do with it.  According to Chief Building  Inspector, Harry Morris-Read,  the Regional District has  nothing to do with it. Then who  does?  Bob Patrick of the Regional  District says it's private property. "If you want to build a retaining wall on your property  you can do so with no permit,"  said Patrick.  Apparently there has been no  house proposal at this site, at  this time. The Regional District  is again, after the fact, looking  into the matter.  Roberts    Creek  Paving question  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  To pave or not to pave. That  question has already been  answered. Last March, Henderson Road, now called Henderson Avenue, was one of the very  last dirt roads in the 'west end'  of Roberts Creek to lose its dust  and grimy oil forever.  When talking to folks on this  dead end road, they mostly all  agree that there is less dirt and  dust in the summer and their  vehicles don't rattle as much  from the pounding on the  washboard.  One resident though, Bill  White disagrees. He says  "There's too much traffic now,  and people are wearing out their  cars from going up and down  too much." Now that's -prenyl,,  ���ironic." ""   --"~~~     :~  I remember many events happening on this r6ad."Neighboufs  seem to always get together for  their summer picnic at the  beach, block garage sales,  Hallowe'ens night trick-or-  treating, bonfire and fireworks,  and neighbourhood carolling at  Christmas.  One; winter in particular not  only the kids on Henderson  Road got the day off school,  but all the kids along Beach  Avenue, Park Avenue and  Margaret Road had a day of  frolicking, snowball fights and  tobogganing. This was all due  to the school bus trying to make  its usual turn-around at the bottom of Henderson when bus  and driver slip-slided into the  ditch in the deep snow.  All the kids, of course, were  shouting and cheering. What a  riot. They knew they were off  for the day.  Henderson Road has one of  the best hills in the Creek for  tobogganing. It's steep at the  top, very long, and has a perfect  gentle slope to the bottom  where it flattens out.  The kids, dogs and quite a  few adults rage down that hill at  top speed. It is one of the best  and according to long time resident, 10-year-old Megan Randall, even with the pavement it  is still going to be "the  greatest!"  FLU BUG  The flu bug or bugs that have  been attacking the last month or  so, Sharon Petzold, Public  Health Nurse and Roberts  Creek mom, says are divided into two types; one that attacks  the respiratory system, sometimes ending in bronchitis and  the other bug attacks the  stomach and digestive system.  They have both been taking  their toll on the school-age  children. It is normal for school  attendance to be slightly down  this time of year due to colds  etc. and this year is no exception.  So if you can parents, please  keep your child home, warm  and resting if he/she comes  down with a bug.

I even have all of my  Christmas shopping done and  wrapped. I don't know how I  did it but this will be the first  year ever that I won't be power-  shopping at closing time on  Christmas Eve.  Bathgate's Store will be closed December 25, 26 and January 1. During the week between  Christmas and New Year's Day  they will open at 9 am instead of  its usual eye-popping 7 am.  The Backeddy Pub will be  closed from December 22 to  January 4.  We sure have had some  beautiful weather lately. The  better to enjoy December's full  moon. These bright nights save  a lot of battery power to those  of us who depend on flashlights  to get around in the dark.  Speaking of nights, they'll be  getting shorter by the end of this  week. That's when winter officially sets in and, speaking of  winter, I hope we don't get a  repeat of last year's cold snap.  It's nice to see the Egmont  school is getting some needed  attention, thanks to our group  Rockwood lights delight  by Ruth Forrester   885-2418  Noticed quite a few Halfmoon Bay folks in attendance at  Rockwood Centre last Saturday  evening for the "Lights Up"  celebration. It was a pleasant  moonlit evening with music provided by the Chatelech High  School Band playing carols or  the Lodge porch.  At 6 pm Mayor Tom  Meredith pulled the switch  which lit up a glorious display  of lights around the building  and throughout the gardens.  Following the ceremony the  crowd dispersed into the annex  building and enjoyed the carol  singing by the West Sechelt  Elementary School Choir, some  violin selections by Katie  Angermeyer's class, then some  lively Christmas numbers by the  Sunshine Choristers.  Our thanks are due to the  volunteers who set up the lights  and those who worked hard to  make the evening such a great  success.  On Monday evening,  December 11 a moving  candlelight ceremony took place  in Rockwood Gardens to commemorate the deaths of the 14  students from Montreal who  died so tragically.  REMEMBER  Please note the date for the  Halfmoon Bay School  Christmas Concert. It is on  Thursday evening, December  21, at 7 pm. A wee gremlin gave  the wrong date last week.  On Wednesday night the kids  will be on board the fire truck to  greet you with some carol singing. Watch out for them.  A SKATING PARTY  The Halfmoom Bay Recreation Association invite parents  to bring the kids to the arena on  Saturday, December 23 at 1:45  until 2:45 for a skating party.  Please don't send the kids on  their own - come with them and  have some ice fun.  HOGMANAY  Don't forget to place your  order now for the New Year's  bash at Welcome Beach Hall.  Tickets are $7.50 each and can  be had by calling Grace Lamont  at 885-9269. You are assured of  a very fine evening.  STOCKING STUFFER  For those of you with friends  who enjoy romance novels here  is a good and right-up-to-date  gift suggestion. Judy Gill of  Halfmoon Bay's latest book has  just been published and is  available in local book stores.  This one is called Golden  Swan and takes place at a  mythical lake inland from  Powell River. This should prove  to be a welcome gift.

Most of  our readers are friends too, so,  to all of you who regularly read  this column - thank you for doing so and for the many nice .  things you have to say about  our humble efforts!  Thank you to those who pass  on information for me to help  Fill the column, your contributions are much appreciated.  Greetings to you all.  There are some special people  who have recently been released  from hospital to whom I would  like to send out best wishes for a  full and speedy recovery:  To my good wee friend Marg  Carpenter of Redrooffs who  has had recent surgery, may you  feel a little bit better every day;  to George Murray, also of  Redrooffs, take care of yourself  George and you will soon be  back to your busy self again;  Dorothy Ackermah of Halfmoon bay has recently had a  rough time of it too. May you  also be feeling much better soon  so that we can see you being  busy again with the hospital  JS53Q535SSS33K  auxiliary who have missed you.  Christmas greetings and get  well wishes to all of you.  There is one very special couple who live on Redrooffs who  seem to have the spirit of  Christmas all year round. This  couple must possess hearts as  big as lions, because as well as  having adopted four girls they  presently are taking good and  loving care of two little foster  children. This will be the  Konopasek's First Christmas in  their house which was rebuilt  after having burned down last  winter. The warm glow of  Christmas which will radiate  from that happy home will far  exceed the flames of that fire.  Merry Christmas to you all.  A Last but not least. A Merry  ^Christmas and, a Happy New  year to John anBi Frari Burnsi*-*  and to all of the great crew at  the Coast News. It is a pleasure  to have such good feelings  among our newspaper  "family."  But we do miss Vern.  of volunteers. If you're looking  for something to do, offers of  help are always welcome even if  it's just for emotional support.  It will be a happy day for  many to see the little school  open its doors again - whether  it's for the growing number of  little people in the area or for  some other function, it can only  benefit our community's livelihood.

Coast News, December 18,1989  tf*   il  by Ellen Frith  by Dave Fraser  Gisela Haoses from Namibia visits Ruby Lake resident Gwen  Hawkins; (See Story below.) ���Dave Fraser photo  Local resident  loves Namibians  the news at first, says Hawkins,  who adds that Namibians have  had their hopes dashed before.  Her attitude was "I'll believe it  when I see it," notes Hawkins.  But, nonetheless, Haoses was so  overcome with excitement that  she had to phone home-  During her stay Haoses, a  Lutheran, spoke about the  Namibian situation in churches  in Sechelt, Powell River and  Nanaimo. On a lighter note,  Hawkins says her Namibian  friend was at first reluctant to  ride the ferry but eventually,  after reassurance from  Hawkins, she got used to it.  When Ruby Lake resident  Gwen Hawkins stepped off the  plane in Windhoek, Namibia in  September, she wondered why  so many were fighting over the  barren, arid land.  "It looked so hopeless," says  Hawkins about the African  country which has been under  the yoke of South Africa for 40  years. As part of a World  Council of Churches team,  Hawkins spent a month observing the registration process in  Namibia's first-ever democratic  election held this month.  The election was successfully  carried out but Hawkins warns  that Western countries cannot  abandon Namibia, a message  she has taken to various church  congregations on the West  Coast since she returned. "I  have one fear, now that the election is over, that the world will  forget they need our support."  She says the country is  roughly the size of British Columbia but with only one-and-a-  half million inhabitants, the  vast majority of whom are  blacks. Namibia, formerly called South West Africa, was a  German colony until the end of  World War II when it was  handed over as a protectorate to  South Africa, which essentially,  "raped the country," Hawkins  says.  The country is riddled with  ethnic factions, with the Ovam-  bos in the north being the most  powerful group. The field of 32  political parties was eventually  narrowed down to 10, she explains. Despite a 75 per cent illiteracy rate, voters chose their  candidate by identifying the  hand sign and colour belonging  to each party.  Hawkins' job was to MR to  registering voters and report  problems of violence or attempted intimidation to the UN. She  says such incidents were rare,  although there were some  reported cases on the Angolan  border to the north.  She adds that it is doubtful so  many Namibians would have  voted - almost 100 per cent of  those registered - had it not been  for the presence of the UN.  Hawkins says in spite of their  mistreatment  under the apartheid regime black Namibians  were  intelligent  and  compassionate - "the most forgiving  people I've ever met in my life."  "I felt so privileged to be  chosen to go and to have met so  many native Namibians. I was  honoured to walk, even for a  month, with them on their path  to   freedom,"   says  Hawkins,  who feels her position as editor  of   a   bi-monthly   Lutheran  women's magazine helped her  being selected.  The announcement that  Namibia was to hold free elections was a dream come true for  Gisela Haoses, a native Namibian, who was visiting Gwen  and husband Ed at Ruby Lake  when she saw on the television  news that South Africa had  agreed to the elections.  She was reluctant to believe  Five recommendations from  the Pender Harbour and District   Ratepayers'   Association  were presented to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  board at its December 14 Planning  Committee  meeting.   Joe  Harrison, representing the approximately 220 members of the  ratepayers' association told the  board the recommendation had  met with general approval at the  association's meeting held October 22.  The recommendations are:  "1) The beauty and integrity  of the small islands surrounding  Pender   Harbour   should   be  preserved;  "2) Current Area A boundaries should be retained intact to  secure a tax base for funding the  clinic, the pool and other  specified area services;  . "3) That the SCRD. reconsider its approach to the new  zoning by-law to give Area A  the same high quality technical  planning that other areas have  received;  "4) The regional board  should do everything in its  power to protect the drinking  water in Garden Bay Lake;  "5) All ratepayers should  lend wholehearted support to  form a society to build a  seniors' housing complex."  Harrison also stated the  ratepayers "support the Ruby  Lake Environment Committee  in opposing logging and barging  on Ruby Lake."  Concerning the possible  restructuring of Area C to include some of Area A, Harrison  said the residents were hearing  "one story in Pender Harbour  and one at the SCRD."  In referring to the need for  high quality technical planning,  he said Pender. Harbour needs a  serious soil study done in the  area.  for Area B  by Ellen Frith  An Official Community Plan  (OPC) for Halfmoon Bay was  one step nearer to reality last  week when the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) Planning Committee gave it second  reading after a lengthy 'special  meeting' to review changes suggested by the Area B Advisory  Planning Commission (APC).  The plan was given first  reading on September 28 and  the changes proposed last week  stemmed from discussions and  review of the plan at a meeting  held on October 4, 17, 24 and  November 6.  There will now be a series of  public information meetings  slated to begin in January.  Members of the Halfmoon  Bay APC told the board "a  good deal of thanks" should go  to Planner Judy Skogstad for  "a lot of late nights" and for  "her dedication and hard  work". The board on its part,  thanked the APC for its help  and input.  OyY.^v.yiOry* '&"  w  We would like  to wish our  customers a  _  ...from Jennifer.

Community groups such as  the Parents Advisory Committee are working hard, making  noise, and getting results about  a new elementary school.  The long-dormant Chamber  of Commerce has not only  revived itself but has been  transformed into a 'community  improvement organization'  from a 'board of  trade/tourism'.  The ratepayers are back in action and doing their best to,  among other things, prevent log  barging on Ruby Lake.  Thanta  for all your concern, prayers,  plume calls, get well cards,  presents, hospital visits,  (especially the friendly gorilla),  and the many donations.  John is happy to he home and  busy with speech and physio  therapy. We have so much to be  thankful for and wish you a  Merrv Christmas.  Pam, John, Lisa,  & Julie Henderson  A small group of local contractors organized to have the  Highway 101 project done by  'day labour' thus bringing new  money into the community.  The Downtown Revitalization Committee is overwhelmed  by the general community support and enthusiasm it's getting  from residents of all backgrounds and political persuasions.  Another group, with the support of most other community  groups, is making great strides  toward developing senior  citizens' housing here.  Unemployment is less than  it's been in years, if ever, and  this year we've seen lots of interesting activity (new faces,  new houses, new businesses)  that promises to continue, at  least until the next election.  A feeling of co-operation exists in Pender Harbour and it  seems that we're all getting the  idea that working together is the  most fulfilling and productive  way to go in a small community. Forget the prejudices. Forget  the labelling. Forget the feuds.  We're all neighbours. Merry  Christmas!

ACTIVITY CENTRE  With the unconditional support of our Mackenzie MLA  Harold Long and the minister  responsible for GO BC,  Howard Dirks, the time to start  construction of our new centre  seems just that much closer to  fruition.  In spite of a recent press  report that Sechelt is over-  endowed with halls, the fact remains that there is not one  multiple use hall in the area  where more than one activity  can take place at any one time.  The building planned by the  seniors and built by the seniors  will not only provide this multi-  use structure, but will relieve the  local taxpayer of the burden of  providing the million dollar  structure which certainly should  be incorporated into the Block 7 l  development.  If the seniors do not provide  a building that can be utilized  for a number of functions, then  the District will have to do so to  take care of the influx of new  citizens, both young and old,  that expanded industry is bringing to us. Think about it.  YEAR END RECESS  Although the requests are a  little late, to date I have had no  request other than the cribbage,  whist group to publish final activity dates for the various activities in progress. Final on  cards will be December 19.  Year end sneaks up pretty  quickly and New Year start-up  will arrive just as quickly, so  please, committee heads, let me  have this information so that it  may be published for the benefit |  of our members.

BC Liberal Leader Gordon Wilson and SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor (far left) who both live in the  area, lent their support to the crowd of more than 50. (See story.) ���Caryl Worden photo  School Board Chairman  relinquishes the chair  by Rose Nicholson  Maureen Clayton has stepped  down as. Chairman of the  School Board.  New Chairman is Carol  Adams and new Vice-chairman  is Pat Stewart.  At the December 12 meeting  of the school board, trustees  and administrative staff expressed appreciation for the  dedication and leadership that  ClaytonJiasbrought to theposi-  tionY Y;-y-- y;;Y '':       YY''  *'A lot of people do not  realize the effort you have put  intoYthis job," said Adams.  "Your ;i vision of what this  school district can be certainly  has been an inspiration to me  and to the other members of  this board. Once, when I was  having a problem, you said to  me 'remember why you're here  Carol, you're here because of  the kids'. I appreciate that, and  it's worked."  "We're saying goodbye to  you as chairman", added trustee Lenora Joe, "but you're still  going to be here as a trustee,  and I'm looking forward to  that."  .. -. ,7iiY:^ .-.*.-"   ���  - $ '  "We've gone through" tremendous change in the last four  years," replied Clayton.  "We've turned things around in  education and I'm very happy  to be part of this team. I have  all the confidence in the world  in our new chairman and I think  we will have a very productive  year."  Halfmoon Bay is taking on  the goliath of Canada Post over  planned changes in services to  the community.  More than 50 people filled  the Halfmoon Bay School  library December 14 to confront  postal officials at a 'drop-in'  session organized by the postal  corporation. "We're here to  assure you that Canada Post,  will continue to have a presence  in the community," Media and  Community Affairs Officer  Lisa Turner told the group.  "Why don't you just preserve  the service we already have,"  demanded resident Ron Seal  amidst cheers and applause.  The battle erupted because  Canada Post wants to down-  scale the service for Halfmoon  Bay from a full rural post office  to franchise outlets. Turner told  the Coast News that it is now  corporation policy to reevaluate an area's needs when a  postmaster resigns, as happened  recently when the B&J Store,  jsite of the post office, was sold.  The new store owner, Uli  Lucas, was running the post office under an interim agreement, when Canada Post adver  tised for area businesses interested in becoming a postal  outlet franchise. Buccaneer  Marina at Secret Cove and  Milore Nursery in Welcome  Woods both applied.  Franchises handle stamp,  money order and other 'postal  product' sales and parcel pick  ups, but do not distribute mail.  Under the Canada Post plan, all  Halfmoon Bay mail would go  through Sechelt post office, and  the more than 70 residents who  get their mail through the B&J  Store would be put on 'green  box' service instead.  "We'll lose our place on the  map," Lucas said before the  meeting. "I feel bamboozled. I  spend about six hours each day  on postal work, and my remuneration is only about $20 a  day."  In protest, Lucas terminated  her contract the day before the  public meeting, but has agreed  to continue for another 30 days  after urging from BC Liberal  Leader Gordon Wilson, who is  also a Halfmoon Bay resident  affected by the proposed  changes.  "The post office has been in  that area since 1898 and this  move cuts into the heart of the  community," Wilson told the  Coast News Friday. "What  Canada Post has done is come  up with an arbitrary ruling  without any knowledge of the  community. They're pitting one  neighbour against another."  Early Friday, Wilson sent a  letter of protest to Ottawa and  expects Liberal MP Don Bou-  drais to speak on the issue in the  House of Commons today  (Monday) or Tuesday. "We're  demanding a month extension  from Canada Post to allow the  community, time to draft a formal protest," Wilson said. A  community petition will also be  forwarded to Parliament and  Canada Post this week.  Alzheimer Awareness  January has been proclaimed as Alzheimer Awareness  Month by the mayors of Sechelt and Gibsons.  More than 300,000 Canadians are affected by this disease  which has no known cure and, contrary to popular belief, is  not a normal consequence of aging.  ������iff;7''-  '���7-'��r--J��e.j!l  ������y-.

She and Wilson have  kept in sporadic touch over the  years. They have very little in  common anymore.  Alice has become more deeply involved in the church than  ever, while Wilson has become a  cynical agnostic. Her ardent  religiousity both bores and annoys him. He has no desire to  resume the relationship  anyhow. The past is dead and  gone. It is time to start an en-,  tirely new life.  Herb Wilson and others are  taken by bus from San Quentin  to the nearby town of San  Rafael. Here, Wilson receives  tangible proof that he has not  been forgotten. Reporters and  photographers converge on  him, anxious for statements and  pictures. The notorious King of  the Safecrackers is still hot  copy. Wilson submits to their  attentions as gracefully as possible. It is a process that will be  repeated many times over the  next few days���to the ex-  preacher's frequent discomfiture.

How do you feel about  that person looking back at  you? Is this a person you love  and respect? If not, you've got  serious trouble.  Think about it. That person  is going to be with you every  minute of every day and night  for the rest of your life. Parents,  children, friends, lovers,  spouses - they all may leave or  die. Even if they stay in your  life, there are times when  they're distant, either emotionally or physically.  The person in .the mirror  (PIM) is the only one that's  always there, whether you like it  or not.  Some people learn to cope  with PIM by staying very busy  and ignoring him/her. But if  you were born when the Sun  was in Capricorn (December 22  to January 21) that simply  won't work. It is crucial to your  sense of well-being to have  PIM's respect and approval.  Obviously, it's that person  you should be talking to constantly, as you decide on each  course of action in your life.  'Mirror work' has long been a  technique used in both  therapeutic and spiritual explorations to accomplish a  unification of the inner and  outer self. And it works!  I'm willing to wager that  more spiritual and emotional insights are experienced in the  bathroom than in any other  single room of the house. It's a  great place to do mirror work.  At least twice a day, stand in  front of your mirror and really  look at PIM. Think about your  day and/or your life and look  into the eyes facing you. How  does PIM feel about your actions and choices, how do you  feel about PIM?  And what do you do when  you look into those eyes and  feel anger, or disgust? How clo  you handle it when you and  PIM don't feel so good about  each other?  Then it's time to communicate, to go over why you  made the choices you did and  look at ways in which you might  rectify any actions that lower  the respect level between you  and PIM.  But before you can do that,  there must be forgiveness. And  "you'llhave,tp.startit. Lookiiito,  that mirror and say, "I love you  and forgive you. You may have  done or said some things I don't  much like, but I know you're a  good person and you have a  right to learn from your  mistakes like everyone else."  It doesn't even matter if you  really feel it when you say it, but  say it over and over again until  the look in PIM's eyes change  and you know you're friends  again. Five times is probably a  minimum.  Once there is forgiveness, you  can make new choices in the  security and safety of being loved and respected by the most  important person in your life.  The last few years have been  filled with upheaval and confusion for those with Capricorn  Suns. The next several years  may contain more of the same.

Herb Wilson gazes  about him in awe, trying to  grasp the fact that he is actually  on the road to freedom.

Shown here is Dorothy Bone (seated) adding her voice to the chorus.  ���Ellen Frith photo  Booking in  Misty Island pioneers  by Montague Royal  As a recent visitor to the  Queen Charlotte Islands, my  memories of the place are still  extremely vivid. One person I  had particularly wanted to interview during my stay there  : was local writer and historian,  : Kathleen   Dalzell.    Unfor-  .' tunatley, Mrs. Dalzell was away  '. so   our   meeting   never   took  �� place. Thus, a few days ago, I  ' was pleased to receive a review  copy of her latest book in the  mail.  The   Beloved   Island   (Har-  " bour) is Kathleen Dalzell's third  book about the Queen Charlottes, where she spent most of her  life.    Unlike   the   previous  volumes,   this   is   a   personal  memoir. It centres around her  parents,   Trevor   and   Meta  Williams and their struggle to  carve a life for themselves on  remote Graham Island in the  early years of the century.  Trevor Williams was a  Welshman with a wanderlust.  His innate thirst for adventure  led him to abandon plans to  become a civil engineer. At 19,  he enlisted in the Denbigshire  Hussars and went off to fight in  the Boer War. The experience,  onerous as it often was, soured  him forever on office work.  Returning to England,  Williams fell in love with Meta  Taylor, the daughter of  neighbours in is home town of  Swansea. While Meta's feelings  were mutual, her parents were  not in favour of the match.  Hoping to sway them by mak  ing a great deal of money,  Williams embarked to Buenos  Aires to set up an import  business. The venture was not a  success and he took a cattle boat  back to Swansea, no further  ahead than before.  Still convinced that his future  did not lie in England, Williams  came to Canada in 1906, worked in Montreal for a couple of  years and eventually made his  way to BC. Here he tied up with  a couple of prospectors and  came to the Queen Charlottes  for the first time, in search of  gold. All this time, loyal Meta  waited in England for her  footloose suitor to find his  niche.  From the moment Williams  first saw the green beauty of the  Charlottes,  he knew that he  must make his stand here for  better or worse. When his partners left after three fruitless  months, he elected to stay on.  The islands were undergoing a  land boom at the time and  Williams   became   a   homesteader, subsisting on whatever  work he could find. By 1910, he  had a sturdy cabin built on his  preemption and now he asked  Meta to join him, fearful that  she might think twice about  sharing his life in such a remote  place. Meta's love for him was  unwavering however. She im-  igrated to Canada and they were  married in Vancouver. Back in  the Charlottes, Meta soon adjusted to the rough and ready  conditions of pioneer life.  Kathleen   Dalzell   writes  vibrantly   and   well   of   her  parent's early homesteading  years in the area of Masset Inlet  where Port Clements now  stands. She tells, often  humourously of their joys and  travails; describes the colourful  men and women who shared  their lives as they carved a community from the wilderness.  In 1914, their rustic idyll was  interrupted by the outbreak of  World War I. Most of the eligible islanders joined up, including Trevor Williams. Meta  returned to England with their  young son to be near her husband. Williams' harrowing experiences in the trenches are  graphically illustrated with entries from a diary he kept at the  time.  After the War, the Williams  returned to the Charlottes along  with other islanders who had  survived the conflict. They  found their hard-won  homesteads overgrown; their  cabins musty and vandalized;  most of their belongings gone.  Stoically, they set about the  process of rebuilding theiry,  homes and their livess ^ -    ^.J"-.  This latter part of Mrs:'  Dalzell's narrative, I found a bit  sketchy and lacking in detail.  She writes of herself in the third  person, thus eliminating the  possibility of any subjective insights. This is a minor carp  however. For the most part,  The Beloved Island is a  fascinating look at a little-  known part of BC's history. It  is lavishly illustrated with rare  photography from the author's  personal collection.  Vegetarian turkey  by Ellen Frith  For anyone brought up with  the high point of Christmas Day  being the big family dinner of  turkey and trimmings, it's difficult to plan a vegetarian variation of the old favourite. But  when a bird, no matter how  beautifully done to a turn and  Drop of* your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIPIKDS  at  Ttf Cowt Wwi  Sechelt  "A Friendly P*opl�� P!*c��"  golden brown it is, is no longer  acceptable fare, there is a  vegetarian alternative which  replaces only the meat in the  meal leaving all the delicious  trimmings, cranberries and all.  In this vegetarian variation,  the turkey is replaced with a  gluten loaf, made with gluten  flour, which is, despite its name,  delicious. The loaf cooks up  much as a turkey does and when  sliced thin and laid admidst the  mashed potatoes, stuffing,  peas, carrots and cranberry  sauce, it makes a Christmas dinner just like Mother use to make  - or almost.  Merry Christinas  &  Happy JSTew Year  from Pronto's management & staff.  To make the loaf, you simply  mix together: two cups gluten  flour which is available in most  health food stores; one third  cup nutritional yeast; 2 tablespoon custard powder; one teaspoon dulse powder (also  available in health food stores);  one tablespoon paprika; one  half teaspoon garlic powder;  one tablespoon each of oregano  and thyme and three tablespoons of parsley.  To the dry ingredients add a  mixture of one cup water and  one third cup each of tamari  sauce and oil. Mix well and  place in a greased loaf pan.  Pour another cup of water mixed with tamari sauce and oil into the pan to cover the sides of  the loaf.  Bake in a slow oven (300  degrees F) for one and a half  hours, turn and bake for  another hour and a half until  well browned.  Meanwhile the stuffing may  be cooked in a separate pan and  the gravy made with a vegetable  stock on top of the stove.

The Kiwanis Extended Care Home Christmas Party at Gibsons  Legion last week was equally enjoyed by Santa and guest Curly  Martindale alike. ���Ellen Frith photo  WanderGuard, an important  new alarm system at Kiwanis  Village Care Home is lessening  the anxiety of staff members  worried about confused or  disoriented residents wandering  away from the care home.  Mary Schoeler, Administrator/Care Co-ordinator,  said some residents in particular, residents who have  Alzheimer's disease are using  the WanderGuard signaling  devices.  Alzheimers is a disease that is  progressively debilitating and  fatal and sufferers tend to be  restless and wander with no  awareness of danger. These  residents may also be younger  than most intermediate care  facilities residents and  therefore, more physically fit.  The population of confused  or disoriented residents in the  nursing home is increasing, as is  the cost of caring for those  residents. Schoeler said those  residents often need more  supervision and a controlled environment to ensure their safety.  Remembering Ivy Pratt  by Carl Chrismas  Our sister Ivy, known in the  art world and to her friends as  'Chris', passed away quietly in  Lions Gate Hospital on November 26, 1989. She was in her  72nd year.  Survived by loving husband  Del, and daughter Nena, both  of Sechelt; son Michael of  Courtenay; sisters Virginia of  Vancouver and June of Penticton; brothers Carl of Sechelt  and Thomas of Castlegar; and  three grandsons, Jhul and  Christian of Sechelt, and Paul  of Courtenay. She is also  mourned by sons and daug-  thers-in-law of Sechelt and  Courtenay, and many nieces,  nephews, family and friends.  %-CThtfi^'was���%t% wanti-and"  gregarious nature, tending to  look at the bright, rather than  the down side of life.  Her wish was for cremation,  with a simple and light-hearted  eulogy by friend or relative. The  friend was Ferny Viella who had  known Chris and Del from their  working days in the IWA and  logging industry. Ferny  remembered many happy and  shared experiences together,  which brought smiles and  chuckles from family and  friends, which is what Chris  would have dearly loved.  The relative was brother Carl  of Sechelt, who remembered the  good years and happy times  they shared, going back at last  50 years. But they were more recent years that were remembered, such as Chris's first trip  to Mexico in the family chariot,  loaded with camping gear,  clothing, grub and two little  kids, Nena and Mike.  She told me of this trip years  ago, but what I remember most  was her experiencing her first  tornado near Manzanillo, when  they ducked into a grass shack  for shelter on a beach, to wait  out the storm.  Chris and the kids were just  snuggled down in their sleeping  bags for warmth when the first  bad blow hit. The thatch roof,  which had been home to a few  large families of scorpions,  began to rip apart and scorpions  began to rain down on them like  ha_l stones.  Undaunted, Chris cooly  made sure there were no openings that would let in anything  larger than a flea, and rode out  the storm.  Later travels took them to  Guadalajara for a time, where  they heard of the great schools  and colleges in San Miguel de  Allende. This is where she  found what she was looking for,  and their subsequent stay was a  long one.  Eventually, they returned to  BC, where Mike and Nena  graduated from their respective  schools, met and married their  chosen spouses and began to  raise families.  Del was driving cats in logging camps on the west coast and  learning the road building  business. This gave Chris the  opportunity to return to her  beloved San Miguel and carry  on with her art work. She spent  a few years there and soaked up  all the training she could get to  begin teaching her craft. On her  return to Sechelt, she put in  some time teaching and attending live art classes at the Arts  Centre.  In the meantime, both Nena  and Mike had developed an inherited t,alent to the point where  the family of three exh_jbited  their art forms locally and in  Courtenay.  Chris's passing will leave a  large gap in all of our lives, but  her spirit, which brought happiness and understanding to  most of us at one time or  another, will remain with us  always. She was an ardent  reader, as well as a gifted writer  of newsy and uplifting letters.  She also encouraged big  brother Carl in his writing and  spurts of doggerel. Here's one  for you, Sis;  A Message to a Spirit  And so, my spirit, J must be  gone,  to carry on in hearts and  minds  and to brighten lives again.  My journey is now over and  I rest,  in eternal sleep,  but you, my spirit, must now  live on  and in memory, my soul  to keep.  'One of our staff's greatest  fears is a wandering resident  getting out on their shift," the  administrator said. "The  WanderGuard System takes the  anxiety off the staff."  Schoeler said the alarm  system helps the nurses who are  unable to always watch all the  exits in the building, and it helps  people who are visiting the  home know when a resident  should not leave the building.  She said, in the past, visitors  have held doors open for  wanderers, not realizing the  residents are confused and  should not be outside on their  own.  About 20 per cent of the  home's residents are considered  as potential wanderers, said the  administrator. Those residents  wear the signaling devices. If  one of the residents with the  device attempts to leave the  building through a monitored  door or hallway, the electronic  sensor on the door will sound  the alarm.  "In the last couple of years  we've seen an increase in the  number of confused and  disoriented residents," she said,  'and the tendency will be for  that number to get higher."  The current alarm system  means that residents do not  have to be restricted to a particular wing of the care home.  The alarm sounds only when  the monitored door is actually  open, so residents can pass by it  without activating the alarm.  Besides being a "godsend"  for the staff, Schoeler said  family members have said  they're comforted knowing  wandering residents are better  protected.

It's large, with seating for just about any sized  group and yet laid out in such a way as there is a sense of  privacy at every table. And the service is excellent.  My family, which includes three vegetarians and a young  boy with very particular tastes, enjoyed a meal there last  Saturday when the cold, damp fog made it an ideal night  during which to treat ourselves.  My choice off Pronto's varied menu was the large Greek  salad which is both appetizingly generous in feta cheese  and spot-on in freshness and spice. And it was served with  garlic bread warm from the oven.  Although a seemingly simple dish, a good Greek salad is  often hard to come by, and Pronto's' is excellent!  Two other members of the family enjoyed a Vegetarian  Pizza which was top-heavy in sizzling goodies and lots of  cheese. The crust, my husband said, was a tribute to the  chef's expertise. It was delicious!  ' It's a good thing the waitresses in Pronto's are as patient  as they are because when my young son orders, it can be a  nightmare. "Spaghetti," he says, "but hold the sauce, and  I don't want butter or oil on it and please bring the  parmesan cheese on the side. I'll have the salad with absolutely no dressing and some garlic bread but with no  garlic on it and no butter. Thank you."  At Pronto's they take it all in their stride and he says his  naked noodles ar^ just wonderful. He asked me, when we  got home, where the restaurant got its spaghetti and if we  could get some too.  I guess we'll be visiting Pronto's again very soon,  Average meal prices do not include liquor  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

The BC Lions capped a terrible season by falling apart in all  directions in the front office.  Hero to the stockbroker set,  Murray Pezim rode to the  rescue with his millions, then it  seemed like he didn't have them  anymore in the magical way of  stock markets, then he did  again.  Joe Kapp, remembered by  veteran watchers for his heroics  in the Grey Cup with Vancouver and subsequently in the  Super Bowl with Minnesota  Vikings surfaced as the Lions  saviour. Then maybe he wasn't  going to be the saviour, then he  was again riding to the rescue.  The previous white knight,  Joe Galat - hired from overseeing the collapse and disappearance of the Montreal  Alouettes and notable here  chiefly for firing the most winning coach in the Lions' lustory,  firing his replacement, finishing  the season himself, all without  notable success - was fired and  it's back to square one for the  West Coast football team.  Meanwhile the arrival of  Soviet superstars Krutov and  Larianov has not turned the  Canucks immediately into division leaders and Stanley Cup  challengers. There is a feeling of  stability and commonsense  about the management of the  Canucks, however, and Krutov  and Larianov can play hockey  so Canuck die-hard fans are  hoping that 1990 will bring  them the joys they were expecting for Christmas.  On the national scene, the  biggest story was the Ben  Johnson drug scandal and the  interminable hearings that  paraded all the accusations and  confessions through the public  press till all and sundry were  heartily sick of them. Johnson  says he has seen the light now, is  talking in high schools against  drug use, and will probably be  adopted back into the fold of  Canadian athletics by the time  the next Olympic Games rolls  around.  The use of drugs will probably continue in international  athletics as long as the nations  of the world see athletic success  as a proclamation of national  pride and as long as the individual athletes can expect  huge financial rewards for winning medals.  All in all, not a great year,  sports fans. It shouldn't be hard  for 1990 to beat it hands down.  Powe  Squad  by Detlev Stiegler  Our annual Christmas Party  was as usual enjoyed by  everyone.

'Jack' Charman wrote,  under his initials AJC, many  descriptive pieces for the Coast  News. Here he tells of the hunt  for the ideal Christmas tree on  his land near Gibsons.  While tidying his fences  overgrown in the previous summer, Jack Charman keeps an  eye out for suitable trees, one  for himself and others for  friends.  Closer study showed that it  will be difficult if not impossible  this year to find the ideal tree  that is evenly branched and  tapers upward symmetrically to  the tip of the growing point  whence the Star of David shines  on all below at the appointed  time.  In short, throughout that  stand and wherever curiousity  prompted me to look the  Christmas tree of the 1964  model is a freak!

I took thought that the soil  that stand is growing in is a clay  loam that holds water like a  sponge and that perhaps there  would be trees of more normal  appearance on gravelly areas  where the heaviest shower  disappears as it falls ��� but  there is no difference worth  mentioning, the frequent summer rains served all alike and  produced abnormally elongated  necks everywhere. And I  thought there was no surprise  left in these woods-for me!  With three weeks to go at  time of writing it is not a pressing^ matter^-rbutrythe winjjed  moments fly fast and it,wfll be  soon. The youngsters will be up  for their trees to where there is  ample area to search for them,  on permission to those who ask  and welcome, as they have been  for so many years that those of  the earlier groups have long  since become householders and  parents themselves.  It is a great event in the  mounting anticipation and excitement of the last few days to  go out for the indispensable  tree. Hardly a year passes  without someone saying or  writing that Christmas is now  no more than a commercial  racket.  My suggested cure for such  sourness is to join those eager  young ones in the woods,  perfectionists for the time being  every one and determined to  take home a tree that will be admired by the household and the  neighbours.  Holly's  Christmas  history  by George Cooper  From Grace Gilchrist's file of  news clippings come these tidbits about winter celebrations.  Holly was used by the Druids  and by the Romans in their  winter festivals of jollity and  gift giving. Sprigs of holly  decorated homes and in early  Christian times their homes,  too, in order to avoid harrass-  ment. That started our present  custom to use holly as one symbol of the jolly Christmas  season.  Called in the Middle Ages  "Christ's thorn" as a reminder  of the crown of thorns, the  evergreen holly also became to  some a symbol of eternal life.  Holly was once considered a  charm to prevent evil witches  entering a house, or to fend off  lightning.  Holly sprigs and wreaths  adorning our homes continue a  custom that spans more than  2000 years.  And do remember this, all  you who are superstitious. Bad  luck will befall any who merely  throw their holly decorations  out in the rubbish bin, or even  let them fall to the floor. In  stead, to avoid bad luck, burn  them or feed them to a cow.  23.  by Dave Fraser  The other day I received a  telephone call from Markus, an  old friend of mine in West  Berlin whom I haven't spoken  to for 10 years. I was 21, a good  age to visit Berlin. The city is  packed with youths from all  over West Germany living there  to escape their military service.  The nights were filled with  passionate political debate,  drinking superb Berliner beer in  the many Kneipen, or pubs,  while days were spent walking  the side streets of that  1000-year-old burg, visiting the  museums of ancient antiquities.  One, in East Berlin, featured an  exquisite bust of Nefertiti, wife  of one of the great Egyptian  pharaohs.  West Berlin, fortunately, is  blessed with many parks and  tranquil lakes, safety valves for  the claustrophobia of living in a  city surrounded by the Eastern  bloc. That paranoia, of living  on the front lines of a possible  nuclear war, permeates the  Berliners' psyche. They live  every minute like it's their last,  an intensity that translates into  a dazzling night life.  For as long as I've known  him, Markus was a university  student so it came as some surprise to learn he now works as a  tile-setter in Berlin and has  plans to become a carpenter, a  profession, it turns out, that is  much in demand as many of the  post-war buildings crumble  from neglect.  "Just great. What a party,"  is how Markus described the  knocking down of the Berlin  Wall. Built 27 years ago by the  Soviet-backed regime to stem a  flood of talented East Germans  defecting to the West, its stones  are now souvenirs of an earlier  Cold War era.  Although people danced on  the streets and the champagne  and tears flowed, Markus said  the political situation had much  room for improvement.  It isn't difficult to hitchhike  to Berlin, although it requires a  two hour drive through East  Germany along^a higfiway corridor, built and funded by the  West German government.  But first you must stand nervously at the East German frontier with your thumb out, surrounded by barbed wire and  guard towers with sour-faced  guards studying you through  binoculars.  It doesn't take long to get a  lift. My driver was an off-duty  truck driver who told me about  a run-in he had with the  'Vopos', or East German People's Police. They rousted him  one night while napping in his  truck on a highway pull-off.  They demanded a fine which,  coincidentally, happened to be  all the West German marks he  had in his pocket at the time.  No doubt the Vopos enjoyed  spending the marks on scarce  luxury goods, available only in  the state-run tourist shops  which don't accept East German currency.  A drive through the drab East  German countryside reveals few  commercial signs but numerous  bright red billboards extolling  the virtues of Marxist-Leninism.  Also in abundance were  buildings with shell and bullet  holes, made by the advancing  Russians more than 40 years  ago.  At a railway crossing there  was a poignant reminder that  we were in an occupied country.  A   crowded   flatcar   carrying  Soviet troops slowly rolled by,  their grim Russian and Asiatic  faces betraying little emotion as  they stared at anxious West  German motorists in their  BMWs and Mercedes, Hedonistic symbols of the West.  Of course, East Germans of  all ages are now not only free to  enter West Berlin but are given  100 Deutsch Marks each in  'welcome money' by West German banks. But after their brief  flings, most East Germans head  back home, if only for the  cheaper food and subsidized  rents.

Editor:  Several times in recent  publications the Canadian  Paperworkers Union, (CPU)  Local 1119, has been accused of  abetting industry in a pollution  cover-up at Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper (HSPP).  I have personally refrained  from entering into a public  debate with these pseudo environmentalists as I possess very  little knowledge of the subject  of dioxins and furans. In fact,  I would like to commend the  Greenpeace organization for bringing this most horrific problem to the public's attention.  For the record: Local 1119 of  the CPU had instituted an environment committee to study  effects of pulp mill discharge  and air emissions long before it  was fashionable to do so. We  have had much co-operation  from the technical staff of  HSPP, and in no way should  this be misconstrued as collusion. The joint committee is in  contact with the Department of  Oceans and Fisheries as well as  the Ministry of Environment,  and several very promising fish  habitat and salmon enhancement programs are being  discussed,  I would also like to point out  that outside of the Greenpeace  organization, we have no place  but the technical department at  HSPP to attain factual data. So  please, do not accuse us of collusion, accuse us of acting out  of ignorance, which through the  able chairmanship of Hugh  McNab, we are trying to rectify.  Several major changes have  taken place recently in order to  eliminate dioxins and furans.  Among them, no more PCP  treated chips will be accepted,  better washing of the brown  stock pulp, though this could be  improved even more controlling  production rates, the elimination of oil based defoamers and  some forms of bleaching.  At the recent BC Federation  of Labour convention, I spoke  on., and wholeheartedly supported the following resolves:  Therefore be it resolved that  this BC Federation of Labour  convention condemn the irresponsibility of both governments and demand that they:  1. Promptly and continuously enforce environmental laws  and pollution regulations in  respect of pulp and paper production,  2. Require the industry to immediately commence the retooling necessary to reduce the pulp  mill organochlorine effluent  level toward zero,  3. Levy on the pulp mills full  costs of rehabilitating aquatic  habitats until finfish and  shellfish are free of  organochlorines,  4. Fully compensate workers  for their losses as a result of the  effects of pulp mill pollution on  freshwater and marine habitats.  In closing, I have noticed one  positive news item concerning  dioxin disaster. 1 read in one of  the Vancouver dailies that our  Minister of Environment is once  again eating shellfish harvested  from Howe Sound.  Vern Rottluff  President, Local 1119 CPU  Let's let our governments know  Editor:  This is an appeal to all people  who value human rights and  justice.  In the last two weeks, we  have all heard about the struggles going on in El Salvador and  I am sure like me, many of you  have been distressed about the  situation there.  The US government is supporting the dictatorship in El  Salvador with money for  weapons and by speaking out in  the media against the opposition forces.  They are calling the government of El Salvador a freely  elected democratic government  and the opposition terrorists.  Unless you have been totally  brainwashed by the US media  you will know that this is a  boldfaced lie.  I personally know two people  who were in El Salvador to  nx-nitor the elections. Their  stories of the terror and suppression of the people at the  hands of the government right  wing death squads and the overt  disruption of the electoral process convinced me that this is  not a democratically elected  government. Careful attention  to our own media reports will  convince you of this, too.

BC Ferries  I urge BC Ferries to institute  the practice of announcing to  the travellers as they leave the  7:30 am sailing from Horseshoe  Bay to Langdale to stop for the  oncoming school buses when  the red lights are flashing.  I have noticed that the ferry  traffic leaving Langdale heading  into Gibsons does not stop for  the bus as the children board the  bus for Langdale school.  This endangers the safety of  my children. I urge BC Ferries  to take a caring and responsible  role in our community by including this additional mention  in your morning message. I look  forward to hearing from you.  Mary Findlay  Navy League recruits  Navy League is accepting  recruits, both boys and girls  ages 10 to 13 years.  The meetings are at Gibsons  Legion Hall, Wednesday at 6:30  pm to 9 pm.  Come join in the learning and  fun. Adult volunteer help is also  needed. Call 885-3370 or  886-2569.

In their efforts for the Elves Club last week, Elphinstone Secondary students did the community proud. They collected hundreds of items of food which will help bring a little Christmas joy into the  homes of some of the Coast's less fortunate families. On Thursday morning, Elves Club President  Rob Buchan (right) was on hand to formally accept the collection from the students. In turn the  students enjoyed a draw for gifts donated by local merchants. ���Ellen Frith photo  ALLIED  The Careful Movers  in a day when personal service seems like a chapter from history,  vou'll be pleased with Allied's genuine concern.

HWY 101, GIBSONS       i&^cSBSr 886-2664  French  seen in  by Rose Nicholson  At the December 12 meeting  of the school board a large contingent of the local chapter of  Parents for French expressed  their dissatisfaction at what they  claim is the 'limbo' position of  the French Immersion program.  The parents said they are concerned the delay in coming to a  firm decision on a policy for  French Immersion is endangering the program. They question  the need for further discussion,  because, commented Chris  Akehurst, "French Immersion  is a success, providing  stimulating, challenging and innovative education."  Sunshine Coast  il  s'    ���.< �����   ,,\,  Y"k*VS,_7;..Y  During the Holiday Season,  the Canadian Red Cross is often  faced with a shortage of blood  donors. Holiday activities and  travel add to the likelihood of  accidents that may require  blood at a time when many people are away and unable to  donate.  On Tuesday, January 2,  1990, the next Sunshine Coast  Blood Donor Clinic will be held  in the Sechelt Legion from 3 to  8 pm. (Please note the time  change).  Healthy adults, weighing  more than 45.5 kilograms and  who are between the ages of 17  and 60 are eligible first-time  donors. Any donor who has  given blood within the last two  years, may continue to give  blood up to 71 years of age,  with the permission of the clinic  medical staff.  The Red Cross would like to  remind those who have given  before, please make a note on  your calendar.  program  limbo  "The parents of the French  Immersion kids are among the  most committed on the Coast."  Akehurst continued, "In light  of the new school act, a district  of this size can ill afford to lose  committed parents, of this  calibre."  Parents are also concerned  that French Immersion teachers  may leave the Coast because of  the uncertainty surrounding the  program. "Even if you do ap-  ; prove the program," pointed  out Mariette Berinstein, "you  may not have any teachers to  teach it."  "It is our position that the  details of this program can be  worked out," stated Jane  Whitely, "once the school  board throws its whole-hearted  support behind the program."  Chairperson Adams assured  the parents the board was taking their concerns seriously. "I  ;would just ask you to bear with  us for onelmonth longer," she  $ said.

This seems unlikely at  best. I submit that many similar  mishaps could be avoided by  putting this section of road into  a condition that is fit for normal  vehicles to travel on.  In the past few years private  and industrial traffic on this  road has at least tripled without  even a hint from the municipality (that I have heard) about addressing this serious problem.  This broken and uneven surface  combined with corners that are  narrow and banked the wrong  way is totally unacceptable in  my view!!  We heard many promises  from local politicians and others  when the campaign was on to  create the municipality of  Sechelt. I maintain that all we  got on this end was much higher  taxes and significantly less service. Could it be that executive  golf courses and four lane parking lots are more important to  those responsible than the safety  of the public.  In my opinion there is no excuse for what I call a blatant  disregard for the safety and expense of us - taxpaying public.  Paul V. Tingley  Tuwanek  Editor:  Thank you to the Coast News  for the front page announcement of the Candlelight Service  for the 14 women killed in Montreal. Over 100 people attended.  I also want to thank the board  and staff of Rockwood Centre  who opened their doors without  charge for this event.  John Revington of Ye Olde  English Doughnut Shoppe supplied the doughnut holes. To all  those who organized and participated in the event, thank  you. Especially to Hahle Gerow  for singing.  Eleanor Mae  for a group of Coastal Women  Important message  Ai.\  (  Editor:  I believe an important  message has been sent by this  community in the collective  response to Jim McDowell's  report on Vern Elliott's death.  The issue is: what style of  journalism do we want? We are  declaring our distaste for the  outmoded journalism that  writes the facts no matter who it  hurts. Do we really need it?  What value is there in publicly  demeaning another human being?  One could argue, in fact someone did, that as long as one is  telling the truth it's OK - after  all it is the truth, right?  The Sufi's suggest our words  must pass three tests before being spoken: is it truthful?, is it  necessary?, and is it kind?  We can only speculate on  what really happened the night  Vern Elliott died. Only two people know the truth.  I question any statement  which begins "Known as a  loner...". That is hardly careful  reporting. As for being  necessary; were 'the facts' relevant to the accident? What is  the rush to pass judgement on  how a man died? Why not wait  for autopsy results?  Finally, I don't think anyone  would call Jim -McDowell's  words kind.  I believe people of integrity as  often remain silent as they  speak out. After all none of us  are saints or sinners, merely a  collection of human beings  making our way on this earth  Players9  thanks  Editor:  Thanks are due to the  numerous people after Driftwood Players' recent successful  production of 'The Diviners' at  Roberts Creek Hall.  We would especially like to  thank Ted Price whose commitment and vision far exceeded  the job of director, Andy and  Tula Maragos who delighted  players with their scrumptious  desserts, not to mention their  grace and charm; Joe's  Truckin' for always being there;  Bruce Forsyth for his continuing support, and Sewan Budjell  for rescuing us and doing such a  magnificent job of lighting the  show at such short notice.  Thanks, too, to our incredibly able stage manager  Bruce Milks, all those  volunteers and of course, you,  the audience, without whom  there would be no show.  If you would like to show  your support of local theatre,  why not become a member of  Driftwood Players for just $6  per year. For further details call  Nest Lewis at 886-7573 or write  to Box 1366, Gibsons.  Nest Lewis, President  Driftwood Players Society  Paper  helps  Editor:  On behalf of the members of  the Sunshine Coast Power and  Sail Squadron, I would like to  thank you for printing our news  items concerning the fall  boating courses.  The registrations for these  courses were greater than our  expectations. The majority of  those registered stated they  learned of the courses from the  article in your paper.  First Lieutenant  Detlev Stiegler  /  the best way we know how.  We do not need to stand in  judgement of one another but  rather to honour what is good in  each of us, to acknowledge our  personal and collective growth  and achievements. That is what  builds community.  The local media has a respon-  siblity for shaping the public  perception of what goes on in  this community. I think some  people need to give that responsibility a lot of thought.  Valerie J.

That the poster in question  be immediately removed from  circulation.  2. That any plans to use this;  logo on a billboard be cancelled.  3. That any plans to declare  Gibsons a 'drug-free zone' be  delayed until agreement is  reached on which drugs are to  be banned and which allowed  and why; and  4. That members of the task  force begin to truly educate  themselves on the benfits and  drawbacks of all drugs commonly and not so commonly used by residents of the Coast, the  reasons that folks use various  specific drugs, and what leads  them to abuse these same  specific drugs.  Furthermore, I regret to announce that due to the seriousness of this scapegoating of an  identifiable minority, my son  and other young friends included, I will openly remove any of  these posters I find publicly  displayed after the December  22, and will openly and literally  'de-face' any billboard I see  erected with this logo on it,  and/or which attempts to single  out and persecute members of  one segment of society but not  others. I invite others to join  me.  I would like to add that I  regret that my intervention is  coming at this late date, when a  certain momentum has already  been attained and opposition  now to the direction taken by  the task force will cause a  degree of consternation for  many of us, myself included.  But the fact of the matter is that  this is the straw that broke this  camel's back.  This is the point where I feel I  have to take a stand and I know  1 take this stand with hundreds  and hundreds of others silently  but solidly behind me. Silent,  mostly because, for many, the  law combined with one's position in society prevents the truth  being spoken.  Don't most of us know a  businessman, a doctor, a lawyer, a dentist, a logger, a  teacher, a youth worker, a  reporter, a store clerk or a real  estate agent who smokes a little  grass now and then?  What chance that they will  risk speaking even the 'facts of  the matter', let alone expressing  their true feelings, let alone actively confronting a well-  meaning but misguided campaign?  At the same time that I take  this stand, however, I now offer  my services to the task force in  the form of the information,  knowledge and perspective I  have gained after 25 years of  theory, practice, study and  thought devoted to (among  other things, I hasten to add!)  the whole question of drug and  herb use in this and other  cultures.  I also offer any abilities I may  have to perhaps bridge gaps,  between myself and others  (some of my friends may  laugh!), between generations,  and between lifestyles.  For assuming that members  of the task force do not have  ulterior motives, assuming that  their intentions are honourable  and assuming that at the heart  of their concern is fear for their  children's safety and health,  whether real or imagined, then  there is a real need for them to  become more drug aware.  The same mistakes that have  been made over and over again  are being made again and where  did it get anyone before? Is the  drug problem better or worse  now than it was 25 years ago?

Can these factors all be  resolved in a way that is  satisfactory to everyone concerned?  These complex issues were  discussed at great length at the  December 13 meeting of the  Forest Advisory Committee  (FAC).  Recent logging in Narrows  Inlet has raised concerns about  the visual impact of the logging  and the effect on tourism in the  inlet. Representatives of the two  logging companies presently  logging in the inlet, Fletcher  Challenge Canada Ltd. and In^  ternational Forest Products  Ltd. (Interfor) were present at  the meeting to present their side  of the issue.  .  Over the next three years,  these companies have plans to'-  log a large portion of the second  growth timber in the inlet.  Art Giroux, operator of Narrows Inlet Wilderness Camp,  questioned the logging practices  that he says have left unsightly  scars on the landscape in the  area. He said that there has  been clear-cut logging to the  water's edge and large amounts  of waste seemed to indicate that  the stands were cut before they  were mature.  "But what is done is done,"  he said. "I have no argument  against logging. We have to coexist, and it's great we can talk  about it like this."  Giroux went on to suggest  that strips of timber could be  left along the beach, and that if  immature stands were left for  several years there would be less  waste.  Barry Mountain of BC Forest  Service explained that leaving  strips   of   timber   along   the  shoreline can cause problems.  "These trees are subject to toppling over. You're better off to  take out the bigger trees and  leave the smaller ones with their  root system to protect against  erosion. But it depends on the  lay of the land. Generally, you  won't see logging to the water's  edge anymore."  Mountain went on to say that  logging waste is carefully  monitored by the Forest Service  and companies are penalized if  they exceed the allowable  amount.  -Mountain also explained that  there is a five year planning  period that takes place before  the first tree is felled at any logging site. During that time, the  area is surveyed for roads,  timber is cruised, streams are  classified and plans are made  for possible burns and for  replanting. The companies are  required to make this five year  plan available tb the public.  "But, very few people are very  interested," he stated.  Discussion of this point suggested that the companies are  sometimes less than anxious to  have their plans scrutinized by  the general public and therefore  make little effort to publicize  times and places..  Economic Development Officer Bill Moore suggested that  some sort of public information  forum might be held in conjunction with Forestry Week so  that individuals and special interest groups would be better informed about logging plans on  the Coast.  "It's a complex question,"  said committee member Fred  Gazely.  "There's a lot at stake," added Tony Greenfield, "and  there's-so much misinformation." said Bill Moore.
