A building permit was re  fused Alex Somers, on the  grounds that the building he  planned to remodel was substandard.  A Land-Use permit for the  protection of the water shed  for the Village was not considered satisfactory. Further cor  respondence was directed, to  find an alternative arrange-  ment.  A letter was directed to toe  written to the Federal Department of Public Works, re: the.  moving of the freight shed on  the Wharf.

fork Makes Roads-Worse
,/ /

nowies Lands
Some weeks ago, there was some activity on the Lower
road to Roberts Creek, pushing" the accumulated debris, j
stumps, etc. off the side of the road and making for better Ilivkls J00™-
visibility as well as slig-htly widening- the traffic surface. This
was fine, but the machine dug holes in the road at right
angles to the traffic direction. These have not since been
graded out, so the road is considerably rougher tham necessary. A similar situation exists along- the road from West
Sechelt to Halfmoon Bay, and a few spots on beyond to Pender Harbour.
We would like to know whether it is possible to erase
Sbsse signs of activity in the road surface, and smooth it out
iagaln before going- on to the next seCtiow. True, the Foreman
reports the district grader in the repair shop, .but is that the
tanly grader in'existance? Cannot a substitute machine be
;made available when it is necessary to have the one repaired?
We seem to recall the presence of a different grader on the
Sunshine Coast Roads from time to time. Why not now?
The crews are busy replacing bridges with those big
concrete culverts, and in the process some curves are being
slimijiated, which is said to be a big improvement. Still, we
fail to see why each section should not be left in better shape.
&s the work goes on*.
Right now, any one having to travel from Sechelt to Pender or back is in the sad position of facing tire ruination and
spring damage that seems quite uncalled for. The Roberts
Creek Road is in the same sad shape.
Perhaps it is all in an effort to discourage visitors to our
Coast, or traffic from Powell River, whew this' due.

There are several reasons for
this delay, and they go back to
Whatshan and the resignation
of Col. Weston, who had practi-
caly completed the plais, and,
as he told me, had $150,000.00
to start work on the power line.
Since then Powell River and
its environs have come into the
piicture which now entails a
much larger commitment, in
fact, an area three times larger
than is now being served by the
Clowholm plant.
The  situation   now  resolves
itself into a major expense for
a high tension line with perhaps
steel towers etc.
In this regard I should like
to suggest that the Power Commission be advised of the suitability of crossing the head of
Porpoise Bay, and meet up with
the Half Moon Bay logging
roads, and then out along the
main road of the Powell River
Log show which takes a direct
line to Pender Harbour.
This road will have hardly
any timber to fall and is only a
short span dov/n to the new
Agamemnon road. It would expedite matters a great deal if
this route was feasible and
would also be much shorter
than the main highway.

The bride wore a charming  gown of ecru satin with white  accessories and was attended  by the groom's sister, Mrs Gordon Reeves. Edward Shaw  supported  the  groom.  Only immediate members of  the families attended the wedding, -among them Mr. and Mrs.  John Reeves and sons from  Jordon River.

Old Gibsons ���  "Grail" Visits  Once a student cf the Gibsons  school, in the days when "the  Barn" was the village School,  Hugh MacDonald and his wife  Elsie, are visiting his another,  Mrs. Ruth MacDonald and her  parents, Mr. and Mrs Frank  1 Allen.  Hugh is at present Superintend  dent of construction, on work  on the new Cellanese plant at  Prince Rupert. Prior to this  work, he was Assistant Superintendent of construction at Kitimat. - ���  Hugh, who has made his way  by never finding anything too  big to tackle, enjoys his returi  visits to Gibson's, and yarning  with old school pals.  Selma   News  It is nice to see people coming  back, year after year, to Selma  Park. For example, the Wygard's  cottages are filled with the same  tenants who enjoyed last summer  here.  "Grandma and Grandpa" Campbell from Burnaby came up first  with their five grandsons. Now,  there are her daughter and two  sons and their families for the  month, occupying two of the cot-1  tages. j  Mrs.,Valerie Kelly of Vancouver  and two children, Judith and Gardner, and Miss Vivian Vicary are  in the other cottage till the month  end. Next week, there will be an  all round change, with last year's  people all back again.  : dall, all the way from El Centro,  California, near the Mexican border, have their comfortable trailer  parked on the campsite a't Larsons  Resort and their streamlined, fibre-  glas-3 "Wizard"' handy for the fishing trips they enjoy so much. The  Kendalls say they hope Pender  Harbour never gets too famous because they feel it's a. perfect spot  just as it is today. They've had  good luck with the trout in Gunboat Bay and are glad they heard  of Pender through the recommendation of the . Black Ball Ferry  people.  Fishing, which was off for a few  days, has picked up this week-end  and almost all tlie visitors report  good sport. Twelve-year-old Richard Jackson, from Vancouver, staying at Larsons, boated a 27-pound  Spring this week.  Larson's resort has cottages,  campsite, boat rentals and steam  baths running at capacity. In addition to twelve families from Vancouver they have many others from  Washington. The Steam baths are  proving a great attraction for the  yachting fraternity and have been  visited this last week by people  from as far away as Long Island,  N.Y., and Anchorage, Alaska.  Sladey's Madeira Park Motel,  with two smart new cabins just  opened for occupancy, has capacity  reservations with five cabins taken  this week by a group of outboard  motor enthusiasts from Kirkland,  Washington. They are all bringing  their own outboards. Mr. and Mrs.  Ridley, at Sladey's for their second  year came all the way from Los  Angeles. They say there's nothing  like Pender Harbour for a restful  vacation in a beautiful setting.  Around Murdoch's, we hear that  Matt Dillabough is back from a  visit to Vancouver and that his  daughter is visiting them at present.
