Willis, Secretary, Sunshine  Coast Ministerial  association.  Impressions of July 1  (Contributed)  Dominion Day along the Sunshine Coast was gloriously Gibsons Day, at least that was the  vivid impression of a comparative newcomer from the prairies  Perhaps comparisons are not  altogether fair, but back in Winnipeg the Dominion Day weekend is a sort of shaking off that  tired-of-the-Iong-winter     fatigue  and hieing  away  to  the lakes  and cottages. But here at Gibsons, we have all that right at  our door, the bathing beaches,  swimming,   fishing,  boating,   a  magnificent backdrop of mountains.  Starting off with the parade,  '��� what a magnificent and spontaneous  effort contributed iby the  folks all up and down the Sunshine    Coast. . .the    beautifully  ��� decorated and novel float's, the  Centennial theme so well interspersed with the general t scheme '  headed by the Mounties'in their  bright scarlets, closely followed  , by the Color Guard of the local  .Legion, the stirring march past  of the pipers in full resplendent  . uniform, the tilt of the kilt of  Gibsons  Seaforths.  Then  came  the floats,  old folk and young  dressed in "Centennial costumes,  the prancing horses of the Little  Bit Ranch, not forgetting those  fettlesome    man-made    horses  from Roberts Creek, the Centennial train experiencing a bit of  difficulty with its wandering caboose and children everywhere,  all marching down the hill in a  happy   higgeldy-piggeldy    conglomerate mass.  The judges must have, had  their work cut out in making  their final selection1 of such1 an  array of floats, all so different,  so original, so beautiful and all  reflecting the magnificent spirit and determination behind it,  a sort of'Our Town effort.  For heart appeal to this newcomer were the wee ones, girls  and boys from one to seven all  dressed up with mother's help,  in every conceivable type of  get-up from zulu to angel, Most  truly representative of the day  was a one-year ohrbirthday boy,  displaying a large card, "I'm  one year old today," not too  happy in being boxed up in a  caravan. He let this be known  with a good hearty bellow and  a show of his two front teeth,  on being presented to the judge  to receive his.blue ribbon.  Just before departing the visiting pipe band from Vancouver  added to the gaiety with stirring  march tunes. As the afternoon  fun went on family groups  sought the shelter of the treed  .area and out came; those^good  old fashioned picnic spreads,  while over on!the midway the  Kinsmen' concessions 7were doing a roaring business in everything from hot dogs to candy  fluff, not forgetting pony rides  for the young ones. Others wandered down to the beach to view  the skill and upsets of the log  rolling experts, canoe races, etc.  etc.  In the evening Dominion Day  activity rose to its final crescendo, the traditional baseball  game, square dancing on the  p'aza, teenagers holding forth in  the high school and a bit later,  the older folk thronged into the  Legion hall for a cabaret and  'nal wind-up dance.  While Gibsons may not be a  hurly-burly metropolitan area,  nevertheless, they made up in  sheer exuberance for their lack  of numbers to stage a Centennial celebration well in keeping with those held by any of  the thousands of centres right  across Canada.  Gunshot  startles!  >A window shattered by a bul--  let startled,Mrf. and Mrs. Guy  Fisher at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Their home is in  the 1600 block Marine Drive and  they were preparing to retire  when two blasts in rapid succession resulted in a bullet smashing" into "a window at the back of  the^house. At the time the room  was unoccupied.  ROMP investigating Sunday  morning located a bullet which  had pierced the glass window  and a drape and apparently  dented a wooden door on the  other side of the room, then  ; bounced .to the floor. Police are  , reported to have described the  bullet as coming from a .30  rifle.  The two sharp reports could  have been mistaken for car  ' noises but the shattering glass  at the Fisher home dispelled  any .idea it came from noisy  cars7'-7 7.;-*;:::77-' ._���'��� ��� ���y''.-.y'<y:^<  ^-Neighbors ^ere7;a\vakenedivby-  the'." sharp reports' "but did hot  learn until morning that they  were apparently from a firearm. ; Mr. Fisher has his taxi  clientele- and neither he nor  Mrs. Fisher have any clues as to  what it is all about. ,  No disturbance had been  heard previous to the. firing of  the weapon so those living in  the vicinity are unable to offer  any help in solving the mystery.  One point disturbing to Mr. Fisher is that he had just recently  cleaned that particular window,  among others. Now it will have  to be replaced.  BALL FINAL  Sunshine Coast Little League  finals start Wed., July 5 at Wilson Creek. Firemen will play  Wilson Creek. The second game  on July 9 will be at Gibsons Elementary School grounds.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District' (board meeting in Pender Harbour secondary school  Friday night of last week laid  plans to find out whether ������> the  various water boards in the area  want to go ahead with an area-  wide water 'board which Would  supply water for distribution by  the various water boards.  The regional board decided it  would accept ithe . West Howe  Sound Water Supply report prepared by O. W. Bullock for the  provincial water rights service.  Discussion centred on the hope  that the various districts would  take a good look at the scheme  not from their situation today  but from what they will require  five or ten years from now. If  the small water boards want to  give consideration to their future they must decide now what  their..attitude^ is" towards the regional water board, regional directors maintained.   ,,  The setup as outlined by;, the  Bullock report is that the region  al water board would supply  water and the local Water  boards would take care of the  distribution. Gibsons municipal  council at its last meeting decided to wait and see what the  regional board's policy would  be while awaiting greater clarification of the whole situation.  Pender Harbour's garbage site  has been declared suitable but  some roadwork, to get at it is  necessary. A local committee  will have to decide which part  of the land will be utilized as  the initial dump. A Sechelt council letter asking for the right  ^to use the regional." dump on  East Porpoise Bay Road will  receive a -board reply to the, effect - that it is available under  conditions which will be outlined but those desiring to use it  must first contact the board. Sechelt is not in the garbage business but has a private garbage  collector and arrangements must  bejmade between himself and.  the regional board.

Mrs".-Jean Duncan and*__d*Thom-  son of the Coast News. In spite  of a general guide for the most  eye-catching, color, forethought  and originality, a wealth of these  features was displayed in all  classifications.  The following selections were  made after careful scrutiny of  each entry: Organization; 1st,  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce;.  2nd, Kinsmen; 3rd, Parent-  Teach Association, highly original entry.  Commercial: 1st, and Centennial Cup, Kruse Drugs' glittering  silver and blue decorated convertible; 2nd, Bank of Montreal  (Sechelt) beautifully decorated  float; 3rd, Kelly's collection  truck, this by popular acclaim.

Other entries, while not winning nor -qualifying for a prize,  came in for much favorable com  ment, particularly the Boy  Scouts and Wolf Cubs of Roberts  Creek. The DeMolay float, the  prancing majorettes who twirled their batons bravely the  length of the parade route, the  Sunshine Coast Power Squadron's entry, the Art's Council's  next-to-life size whale and the  gaily decorated motorcade of  the Sunshine Coast queens and  their attendants. Gibsons well-  manned fire truck in all its  splendor and gaily decorated  with flowers, sparkled with the  best of them.  60 lively teenagers  Sixty lively teenage members  of the Red Cross Youth took over  the Jolly JRoger Inn at Secret  Cove last week to hold a seven-  day International Youth Conference in charge of Mrs. Isla Service, director, Red Cross Youth,  B.C and Yukon Division.  This annual conference of Red  Cross Youth members held at  various points throughout the  province, made its first appearance on the Sunshine Coast and  the weather, delightful surroundings and accommodation left  nothing to be desired.  The theme, Understanding  through Communication, in the  hope of helping people to understand people all over the world,  was well exemplified by the  speakers supplied by International House, UBC, representing many countries including Jamaica, Antigua, Kenya and the  U.S.  Those attending, all of high  school age, ranging from M to  19, settled down to the well  planned program which was  opened by Dr. Howard, president of the B.C. Red Cross Society.  Local representatives attending were Rita Ono and Stephen.  Lee.  The  final   day  speaker  was  Mrs. Cloe Day of Gibsons who  summed up the obligations and  opportunities of doing world service.  She mentioned  the adoption by Gibsons of the two Greek  families  as well as  the  Greek  school  adopted by Elphinstone  High School six years ago. Mrs.  Day in her visit to Greece last  year had the opportunity of visiting the adopted school at Ana-  Iypsis and getting a first hand  reaction of the wonderful morale  building effect and touching appreciation   of7 both  Greek  students and their teachers.

This ratepayer's association must be wider than one covering  Gibsons  only.  It should be a  general association  covering the  populace from Gower Point to the north side of Granthams Landing.  Today we have three levels of local government. One concerns  Gibsons village. The other covers the entire Sunshine Coast. The  third is the school board.  Why is the suggestion made at this time that ratepayers  should band together? Well, now, or say after* Labor Day, is the  time to get one organized and be operative when the stresses become greater than they are at present.  What are these stresses? Let's take school board budgets.  They make up more than 50 percent of the tax levy and in spite  of Mr. Bennett's home owner grant the average individual is  paying more dn all forms of school and ihunicipal taxation than  ever before. Secondly as far as Gibsons and area are concerned  there is a water problem. The money spent so far on Gibsons  water supply is just a start. Expansion of village boundaries  which must come soon will bring new problems. Water problems  will also hit surrounding areas. Gibsons village is also probing,  without too much deliberation at present, a sewage system. All  these items add up to something which will have to be supplied  by the taxpayer in the form of cash.  The average reader, enjoying some nice summer weather,  would be inclined to say why bother us with that now? Well, it  ���takes time to get a ratepayer organization active. First one  should get the backing of people interested in more than their  own minor problems, people who have sufficient vision to see  that we have a good product in the Sunshine Coastal area which  needs some pointing up here and there.  Perhaps it is too much to expect such an organization to  flourish in our rather pleasant climate. What we should have are  people with the tenacity of blackberry vines, the ones that keep  cropping up regardless of what you do to keep them under control.  We may be in a state of lethargy aided by an affluence we  have not earned. We could be wrong. Sir J. M. Banrie once said  he was not young enough to know everything. That seems to be  the editor's trouble, too.  Those angels of mercy  When it comes to leaving their mark on events on the Sunshine Coast there is no doublt women of the area are doing their  share of helping make life a little better.  One has only to recount the number of times cheques from  hospital auxiliaries have been passed on the St. Mary's hospital  authorities. Consider the Royal Canadian Legion auxiliaries and  what they have done. Remember the womens' church organizations and wonder what those same churches would do without  women. Women's fraternal organizations have also helped.  If one could tabulate all the money raised through women's  organizations on the Sunshine Coast it would without a doubt be  a sum that would be unbelievable. However there is no authority  keeping check on such amounts, therefore we shall have to let  our minds ponder on their achievements. If it is more blessed  to give than* to receive most men are apparently content to let  the women have the greater blessing.  Just what is happening to our  taxes? Why are they for. ever  going up? The main answer is  to be found on the expenditure  side.  We, you and I, the average  taxpayer, are for ever insisting  for more and better schools, on  more and better health _care  and on more and better roads.  Government run services in  other words, are in increasing  demand and so is the money  to pay for them.  But note this. These expenditures are not national. They are  mainly provincial and local in  character. So this increase in  demand for money takes the  form of taxes which have to  be raised toy the provinces and  their creatures, the municipalities.  This is the main reason why  provincial expenditures have  been rising faster than the national average. This is the main  reason, also, why municipalities  are having to tax personal property more than ever before.  Where today's average tax  dollar goes is quite revealing.  More than 50c goes to the provinces. And the proportion is  rising.    Ottawa's   share   mean  while has continued to decline.  It has declined more or less con  tinuously ever since the end of  World War H.  Hardly a month goes foy without the provinces pressing for  more of a share of our income  tax. And hardly a month goes  by without Ottawa being asked  to participate in another cost  sharing program.  Our municipalities are the  worst off. They are in worse  shape than the provinces" because they have to fall back, almost entirely, on a tax on property. This, incidentally, was  what Finance Minister Sharp  had in mind when he spoke recently to the Canadian Tax  Foundation.  "I am told," he said, "that in  Canada real property taxes are  probably higher in proportion  to income than in any other advanced country in the world. . .  The Carter Commission also  confirms what we had previous--  ly suspected, that this (property) tax is regressive and bears  heavily upon the poor."  Mr. Sharp gave a broad hint  as to how he thought we might  deal with this problem. He  thought that "anore of t{ie very  By  JACK DAVIS,  M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  heavy cost of roads and streets  might be placed upon those who  use them and less upon, the  owners of property."  What is the Canadian Tax  Foundation likely to say when  it looks into this matter? If its  earlier report on Taxes and  Traffic is any guide, it will say  that Ottawa itself should help  to foot the bill:  I agree. However this new  program should be largely self-  supiporting.  Perhaps we should do as the  United States has done.. Ottawa  should levy a lc a'gallon tax  on gasoline and this fund should  Books .by Mail:  free catalogue, write  "THE B00KFINDER  4444 W. 10th Ave  Van 8, B.C.  "  be used to build highways,  throughways and streets 'in and  between our major cities and  towns. Then we could - avoid  tolls. We wouldn't even have to  have a toll on the new crossing  over Burrard Inlet, in Vancouver. '  JOLLY ROGER  INN  for fine  CUISINE  come to  Secret Cove  RESERVATIONS  885-9998  COPYBKSHT APPLIED K>*  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c^o this newspaper.  Many questions have been  asked about whether a person's criminal record counts  against him when he is charged with an offence.  The court (that is, the magistrate or judge or jury, if there  is one) cannot even learn of an  accused person's record before  he is convicted. If the accused  is convicted, the prosecutor  can tell the court of the record  and the magistrate or judge  may take it into consideration  in arriving at the sentence. The  law takes the view that once  a ..person is convicted of an  earlier offence and paid the  penalty, he has' paid his debt  to society and that is the end  of the matter. His record for  past offences has no bearing  on his guilty.or innocence :n  future charges.  There are certain exceptions.  The most important one occurs  when the accused elects to testify h'rhseif. The prosecutor  may cross-examine him as to  his record. The court may, however, use this only to a limited  extent. Any past convictions admitted (or proved if necessary)  can be,used only to assess the  accused's credibility, that is,  whether his testimony is likely  to be true, not whether he is  guilty or innocent of the charge  as a whole.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  J. Veitch and J. H. Drummond  were elected president and secretary 'Of Gibsons and District  Board of Trade. Andy Hill was  put in charge of a regatta to  celebrate the opening of the new  government wharf sometime in  August.  Union Steamships announced  its summer schedule for trips..  from Vancouver to Granthams  Landing, Sechelt and Pender  Harbour. There were six trips  ^weekly to Sechelt, four to Granthams and three to Pender Harbour.  Papers were signed for the incorporation of Selma Park Community Centre and Mrs. G. Col-  son, was elected president, Frank  Wheeler vice-president, Bert Sim j  treasurer and Miss A. Millar I  secretary.  POINT  OF LAW  Let us suppose a man is  charged with breaking and entry. He testifys and, of course,  his evidence indicates he is innocent. He admits under cross-  examination that he has previously been convicted of theft,  breaking and entry and robbery. A juror may say to himself "as he has been convicted  of these serious crimes in the  past, I do not think he would  hesitate to commit perjury as  well and I do not believe his  story which was shaky to begin with." He may not say to  himself "as he has been convicted of these serious crimes  in the past, he is probably quil-  ty of the present charge of  breaking  and entry  as  well.'';.  A judge or magistrate with  legal training will have little  difficuty with this distinction  but a juror may find it more  difficult: These disadvantages  in testifying make the. decision  as to whether to testify or not,  and as to whether to elect for  a jury trial (as an accused  may in any charges) difficult  decisions indeed.       -  N.

BURSITIS  IS  A  PAINFUL   AILMENT  In many cases bursitis is considered to be  part of an arthritic tendency. A bursa is a little  sac, often containing an oily like' substance. It  may be positioned under a muscle or a tendon  and there it serves as a pully.  When a bursa becomes inflamed it may fill  up with calcium, (sometimes called "lime".)  salts, which can be easily seen with X-rays. In  the early stages it cannot be seen with an  X-ray examination. Usually two out of three  cases can be quickly cleared by a couple of ,  treatments with rays. Sometimes injections are  needed. Quick medical examination and treatment usually saves much pain.

The coat or jacket  tops color co-ordinated dresses  and a slightly 'fitted sWmmer  can be dressed up or down as  the occasion demands; The  choice of a pattern is a major  consideration. By choosing one  or two patterns and varying  the combinations of color on color, print with plaini the possibilities are almost endless.  One coat-dress pattern, Simplicity 6883, is available in sizes  10 to 118; This semi-fitted sleeve-  Jess dress is flattering to nearly all figure types because it features  a yoked" division at 7the  bustline. .You might consider a  ���bi-icolor combination for a sophisticated coat and dress in  tm-quoise and navy blue. With  the most becoming color next to  your face, the yoke line%will  draw attention away from" possible trouble areas like waist  and hips, and focus on your new  Spring makeup.  Details such as top-stitched-  seams and edgings and loop buttonholes add a designer touch.  A more tailored look can be  achieved foy making the coat  without a collar and shortening  it to a chic seven-eights length.  This costume is also economical to sew. Fabric of crease-  resistant synthetic linen will total about $25 for the outfit.

If we  allowed overcrowding to continue, the whole forest would  be poorer. Few of the trees in this stand would receive  enough of the sunlight, fresh air and soil nutrients required  to grow fast and strong. Many would become diseased.  The majority would die from malnutrition.  This won't happen, though. Because this delinquent  and others like it are about to be removed by our foresters.  .The remaining healthy young trees will then have  the space they need, to reach maturity, which will be  about eighty years from now.  Spacing of young trees is only one aspect of  modern tree farming. We also plant seedlings by hand in  logged areas and fill in the gaps in sparsely treed  stands to make them more productive. Of course, the battle  against fire, weeds, insects and disease never ends.  The exciting result of our efforts is the creation of  forests that will yield up to 40% more usable timber than  the ones nature gave us. British Columbia's major  resource is being constantly renewed ... to provide more  jobs for your grandchildren.  MacMillan Bloedel Limited 4        Coast News, July 6, 1967.      MISC.

Mi-, Davis told the house that  last fall the department of fisheries set aside an amount close  to $25,000 for the project and  Mr. Davis said he would like to  have it continued.    .  He^ maintained there was a  good; market for such fish-in  Europe where they have been  harvested in the North Sea to  the point where they are -now  controlled because of scarcity.  He said that most of the United  Kingdom' fish and chip industry  relied on dogfish flesh.  ���Fisheries Minister H. J. Robi-  chaud said he would keep the  suggestion 'by Mr. Davis in  mind7 The experiments had been  fairly succcessful he added and  it was hoped they could be continued this year.  The dogfish shari., bane of  sport and commercial fishermen,  alike, is one of 10 species of  shark found in B.C. waters. It  is readily distinguishable from  other members of the shark  family by the "presence of a  sharp spine at the base of each  of its- two dorsal fins.  In \ the eastern Pacific its  range covers the temperate sea  region from California to the  Gulf -of- Alaska, but its greatest abundance occurs between  the Columbia River and northern Hecate Strait. In the Strait  of Georgia, local populations  are known to move extensively  but these are more or less  separate from populations which  inhabit Puget Sound and waters  along the open coast. Coastal  populations demonstrate a  sea-  10 new Mums  for Centennial  Ten new chrysanthemums,  called The Fathers of Confederation Series, have beea developed at the CDA's Research  Station reports H. FVvHarp,  ornamentals breeder.'- They are  named for John A. MacDonald,  George Brown, Charles Tupper,  George E. Cartier, Joseph  Howe,' Adam G. Archibald,  Samuel Leonard Tilley, Edward  Whelen, Alexander T. Gait and  D'Arcy McGee.  All -: are hardy, good-quality  'mums that flower from late  August, through September, and  into early October in a wide  range of colors. MacDonald is,  one of. the best with large, pale-  yellow, incurved blooms. Brawn  has magenta' flowers; Tupper  is a dark red; Cartier is lilac-  pink; Archibald is a fine bronze;  Talleyrand. Gait are only 10 inches high, but' spread, to 2 feet  across! Tilley is orange-bronze  and Gait is bright yellow.  Whelen makes a compact mound  of fully double yellow flowers  two inches across.  Howe and McGee are singles,  yellow and white respectively.  Both flower profusely and are  useful for massing in beds and  borders. All the rest have  double flowers of medium size  on plants that are 18 to 24 inches high.  Stock plants of the new 'mums  have been sent to prairie nursery-men who will make young  plants available' to the public  in the sprang of 1968.  sonal movement, migrating  northward in the spring and  southward in autumn.  Fertilization of eggs is accomplished internally and is believed to take pace around about  December. The gestation period  is approximately two years.  Throughout the uterine life,  each pup is nourished by a '  large yolk sack attached to the  ventral wall of its abdomen. The  number of young produced may  vary from 2 to 17 per litter,  averaging aibout 8.    .  Detailed information on  growth rate is still lacking but  it is apparent that the dogfish  grows very slowly. Estimation  of age from growth rings on  the dorsal spines suggests that  it takes 10 years to reach a  length of 24 to 30 inches and  20 years to reach a length of  33 to 40 inches! Maximum age  is unknown, but it doubtless  exceeds 40 years. Females are -  believed to reach maturity in  15 to 20 years. The largest dogfish reported in Pacific waters  is 5 feet 3 inches. There are no  official records from B.C. waters which exceed 4 feet.  During the first few years of  life, the dogfish feeds on small  bottom organisms, but as  growth: proceeds the diet increases in variety and includes  various species of fish. A typical diet is difficult to defne, for  the dogfish is an opportunist  and much depends on the season and the locality.  In an examination of stomach  contents of more than 2.400 dogfish captured by trawls on various B.C. fishing -grounds, evidence of salmon was encountered only four times. Species of  most frequent occurence in the  diet were herring, sandlance  (needle fish), : hake, flatfish,,  smelts, and various invertebrates such as shrimp, euphau-  siids. (red feed),- crabs, octopus  and squid.  The history of commercial  fishing for dogfish in British  Columbia is one of the-longest,  dating from aibout 1870. Prior  to 1900, dogfish liver oil was  in high demand as a lubricant  for  mine,   mill  and steamship  Freezer Bread  20 OFF  per LOAF on  20 loaves or more  Gibsons Bakery  Gibsons & Sunnycrest Plaza  Phone 886-7441  Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-9900  machinery, and for lighting purposes, domestic and industrial  lamps,' and illumination in lighthouses. As new and better  sources, of illumination became  available, emphasis shifted to  fishmeal and fertilizer, but production declined during the  early 1000s.  The modern-day phase of the  fishery began in the late 1930s  with discovery of a high Vitamin A. content in the livers of  dogfish. War-time demand and  shortage of the usual sources of  supply, codfish liver, resulted in  an explosive development of the  fishery along the Pacific coast.  A declining abundance in the1  ���late 40s aroused concern about  measures for. conservation.  However, starting in 1950 demand for 'ciogfish , liver was  greatly reduced by development  of synthetic Vitamin A and by  imports from Japan. Since that  time the fishery has languished,  and as everyone knows, dogfish  populations have been rebuilding - and causing increasing interference with other fisheries.  It is believed that an annual  ��� removal coast wide of as much  as 60 million pounds would be  necessary to "control abundance  and minimize interference with  other fisheries.    A    subsidized'  fishery aimed at control rather  than  utilization, appears  to be  a prohibitive .venture financially  even if it .were to be attacked  on an international co-operative  basis. The solution lies in the  development of a fishery which  can make economical use of the  resource    preferably    as food.  With   the   world's   growing   demand for protein, it is certain  that  there  will     be     markets  available,   providing   the   problems    of    processing    can    be  solved.

To attach a carport to the  front of the house, and still  maintain good clean designing  lines, poses a problem to the  designer, and in this house the"  problem has been overcome  without detracting from the ap-.  pearance of the front of the'  house.  This house as a cathedral  entry, designed for a rear view  which makes it unique in itself.  -Living room, kitchen-, and master bedroom face the view with"  a balcony accessible from the  kitchen, making it convenient  for serving meals outdoors, and  sliding panoramic glass doors  make the balcony available  from the living room''also.,...  The master bedroom has two7  individual closets; achieved by  setting the fireplace on the inside  wail of the; living room,  A fairly level lot would be  excellent for this house, which  is designed to the standards of  the National Building- Code of  Canada, for N.H.A. or conventional mortgaging.

It was windy outside, and more  than a little rough, tout mahy,  many people saw more of Howe  Sound then they knew was here,  arid they caught a few fish while  doing so. The fishing was anything but good, though there  were some nice fish came in. It  was a busy weekend in the bay,  and there were many large  yachts stopped over. Several  fishing boats on their way north  were forced to lay over, because  of the heavy seas.  Fishing was reported picking  up at Pender Harjbpur Monday,  so we may get a break in a few  days Until next week, good luck  and be a good sportsman.
