Hydro started compiling area construction figures back in 1957.  This was revealed in the B.C. Hydro tabulation covering 1967.  It showed Sechelt's new construction at $160,850. The total was  divided with $61,350 for residences and $99,500 for commercial construction. The commercial included the extension of the Parker  Hardlware store, the Crucil stores and apartments, the Medical  clinic and smaller constructions.  Home construction totalled $61,350 covering the cost of about  half a dozen homes. Construction in the Sechelt trading area showed good increase as the tabulation lists 16 summer/ residences in  the Sandy Hook, Tuwanek and Tillicum Bay subdivisions on the  east side o. Porpoise Bay.  Gibsons commercial* construction for the year was at a low ebb;  the total being $14,750; However the residential side of the picture  showed a total in homes of $105,750 which covers 10 new homes.  The rural part of the Sunshine Coast saw construction during  the year amounting to $2,867,800 with more than half of that figure,  $1,581,600 going into homes. The number of homes built in the entireSunshine Coast area7numbered 192, the largest number yet.  About 16 of these homes were built in the two villages and 136 in  the rural areas.  Commercial construction in the rural area totalled $1,285,500  and of this amount the greater sum's were provided by Ferry Authority construction, harbor shelter at Selma Park and some school  board construction.

The reply came as the result of the petition of residents in the  area involved sent to him through Eric Thomson, lawyer working  for the petitioners".  The letter from Mr. Gaglardi reads:  "I wish to acknowledge your letter of January 18 enclosing a  petition from the property holders in District Lots 698, 690, 902  and 903 with respect to the proposed byjpass of the Gibsons village  by the Sunshine Coast Highway 101.  "We are fully aware of this situation, and, in fact, have been  carrying out some further investigations and discussions with local people and with officials of the Parks branch regarding possible alternatives or other solutions. In any event, we will not fix  the location until the matter has been settled."

Fire guts home  Fire completely gutted the  inside of a one-room home at  the corner of Franklin Road  and Burns Road in Gibsons  shortly before midnight Monday.  The 7 home owned by Jack  Edge who lives in the next  house was rented to Peter Cho-  quette who is now in Vancouver. Eric Edward McRae and  friend were occupants at the  time of the fire which started  apparently from an over heated oil stove.  Gibsons Volunteer firemen  were at the time concluding  their    Monday    night    meeting  with a member from the fire  marshall's department in Van-  couvez%   Tom   Hastings.  The firemen were about to  leave for their homes when the  alarm was turned in by Mrs.  F. Cooper, a neighbor. So along  ! with Mr. Hastings the trucks  speeded to the blaze and gave  the fire marshall's representative a chance to see the firemen in action. As the fire had  a good hold on the interior the  firemen were only able to save  the shell of the structure. Mr.  Edge reports he intends to tear  it down and rebuild. Household  contents were a complete loss.  THIS IS WHAT happened at the Colin Dobell  photo was taken, some fill had been dumped over  about eight feet from the edge of land.

Intercom for firemen  Gibsons fire department was  given permission by the municipal council to instal a fire  truck communications1 system  to improve its fire fighting facilities.  At Tuesday night's meeting  council heard Councillor Gerry  Dixon explain the use of such  a system which would have a  radius of about 20 miles. This  would mean one truck could go  to distant fires and if further  help was needed the communications system would be utilized. B.C. Telephones would set  up the system, the cost of which  would be halved with the District fire prevention organization.  John Matthews for Sunnycrest  Plaza tenants asked for a pressure test on water to the plaza.  He suggests a" test at the meter  to find out whether pipes beyond the meter are corroded.  The water supply to the plaza  was diminishing, his letter read.  Ken Barker of Aldersprings  road 7complained by letter of  the unsightly scene Kinsmen  Park presents when viewing it  from the low side. He suggested various methods of making  it more presentable. Chairman  Fred Feeney said Mr. Barker  had some good points. The letter was turned over to Councillors Goddard and Crosby for  action.  Councillor Wally Peterson  hoped for an area-wide cleanup and paint-up in the spring  with the Chamber of Commerce  offering leadership.  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Services asks that a fire hydrant  by installed in vicinity of Elphinstone school. The school  board will be approached along  with other occupants of the area  on the matter of costs.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  Recreation committee sought a  representative from council on  the committee. It was advised  that the council was supporting  the Gibsons Athletic Club which  is taking over all sports in this  area with council's support  along with that of merchants.  Councillor Goddard will attend  a regional committee uncommitted.  :*�����&"&;  WHAT RAMPAGING WATER can do to a ditch is shown above, taken on Porpoise Bay road.

Chambers of Commerce plans to visit the three  chambers at Gibsons, Sechelt  and Pender Harbor sometime  in February, Ron Haig, Gibsons chamber president announces.  Gibsons Athletic association  have made an appeal to business men on behaf of the promotion of juvenile sports. The  following statement has been  sent to all business houses:  As you have no doubt read  in the local newspapers, we  have obtained the use of the  Old Municipal Hall and have  started The Gibsons Athletic  Association.  The object of the organization is, to promote juvenile  sports in the district, have a  recreation centre where the  children can be given blackboard instructions  in the vari  ous sports, a club room during  the week-days from 7 p.m. to  9 p.m. where they can play  ping pong, checkers, chess and  various other games under  adult supervision. . At the present time it is used mainly by  persons interested in soccer  but come the summer the baseball enthusiast will have use  of the facilities.  We would appreciate if you  would make a donation to one  of our representative when  he calls upon you, thus becoming a member of The Gibsons  Athletic Association. ��� L. Labonte, secretary and T. Connor,  president.  A letter to the Coast I*ew�� by  Hon. Isabel Dawson, minister  without portfolio and MLA fortius constituency reads:  "I have received a considerable number of telegrams, letters and telephone calls in regard to the situation, which is  disturbing to say the least. I  have had talks with the Premier, the Hon. P. A. Gaglardi,  Mr. M. Aldous and Dr. Morrison of the Civil Service Commission. I am assured it is simply a seasonal layoff because of  lack of travelling public at this  \ time of year, and all :will; be  -rehired^rahd^ ;i>romoted to 7ior-7  mer positions as soon as business picks up, in two or three  months, at the most.  There has been a question that  the demotion and layoff contravene the Civil Service Act, but  I am informed that this can  quite properly be done when  the position no longer exists and  the employees become redundant.  "I have, also been assured  that it has been done on a seniority basis as pertains to Langdale and Jervis Inlet runs. Although there have been some  demotions, I think that most  will agree, for those concerned in this move, it is better to.  be working during this seasonal layoff than not at all. Naturally, if one vessel is off, the  crews of both cannot work on  the one still remaining.  "I am most concerned about  those who are not eligible for  Unemployment Insurance and  who have families to maintain  and possibly only limited means  to fall back on.  "When the very much larger  Sunshine Coast Queen comes  into service toward the latter  part of March, there will be a  continuing two-hour service,  supplemented as necessary during the summer months and  holiday weekends, by the Sechelt or Langdale Queen. With  the very much increased capacity of the new ship, plus the  revisions of the terminals, we  will be able to handle expeditiously much more traffic than  we have in the past.  "I assure you I am watching:  this closely and shall do all possible to see that a fair deal is  had by all. Some have already  sent in acceptance of temporary demotions."  Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce held a special  executive meeting at the call of  the vice-president, Walt Nygren at his place of business ���  Wednesday evening of last week  The executive heard two members of the displaced ferry staff  state the case as it effected all  other displaced staff.  As a result the executive decided to wire Hon. Mrs. Dawson  miniser without portfolio, to arrange with it a date for a meeting with her in Gibsons.

The Coast News has received a letter and a publication of  the B.C. Civil Liberties Association from there.  While we have nothing against the general portent of why the  association exists we could offer the suggestion that limiting its  operations to halting infringement of civil liberties and freedoms  is only one side of the coin.  It is true there is public resentment against some types of  printed words and pictures. It is also true that the public forgets  many of its civil liberties and thereby allows weaknesses to creep  in. . . . .*  For instance there is the civil liberty of using the ballot to express opinions. This record could be improved greatly. Perhaps  those individuals who express their opinions on four letter words  and nudity in pictures are the ones who cast their ballot on every  neededi occasion. This is a hope at least.  However one can see-great scope for a civil liberties operation which would educate the public on the need for the expression of an opinion on matters involving the well-being of the community. Take for instance the small votes that are involved in governmental, association and fraternal units.  Is rule by the minority something a civil liberties organization  can gloss over? The letter sent to Coast News contains this paragraph: "A civil liberties movement should be the concern of every  person in the community. The only recognized means of halting  infringement of citizens' liberties and freedoms is public opinion."  It's funny but civil liberties become a strong vocal issue when  somebody is not allowed to do something. When civil liberties are  neglected no one says. boo. It's time for a change. How about it?  To some people this editorial may seem far-fetched but is it?  If such a passing phase as obscenity and such like can stir people  into action it appears hypocritical to ignore the lack of the use of  civil liberty where it would do most good. Some people would  claim it is their privilege not to cast a vote. It is an expensive  privilege and leads to rule by minority.  In being adamant about the liberty for obscenity ,and taking  the stand that freedom of expression in a democratic self-governing society is vital, how about transferring some of the effort of  freedom of expression where it would do the most good ��� the ballot box.  Try some spruce gum!  Rarely does one feel competent to quarrel, with Mr. Webster  but when he wrote a book of words and absolutly ignored spruce  gum, it's time for good men to come to the aid of one of Nature's  most delicius, chewable and satisfying substances. Men now sitting  in decorous, dignified offices remember when they used to go into  the woodiot and get a mess of gum for their use. Most farm lads  kept a well-secreted box of it somewhere in the woodshed or barn.  There's nothing like spruce gum if it's harvested when it's  right. The dark amber masses formed beneath a knot hole or from  a break in the bark. When it was ready for use it had turned hard  and brittle and reminded one of a piece of resin.  Chewing it took patience. It had to be kept in the mouth to  soften for a considerable period, but when it was ready, a lad had  a mouthful of pinkrtinged material that was practically indestructible.  A small cud could be kept under the tongue all day at school  The tangy, slightly tart, fragrant goodness of it was an appeal a  boy couldn't resist. Even if finances were low for boughten candy  one could make out if he had a good supply of spruce giim.  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  The voters list, revised for  a plebiscite on a $50,000 licensed hotel in Gibsons, revealed  there were about 800 votes in  the Gibsons to Hopkins Landing area. ..   ..  Mrs. George Frith was elected president of the first Gibsons VON auxiliary. Bob Burns  was president of the VON organization.  A meeting held Jan. 14 organized Sunday United Church  services at Roberts Creek.  Fourteen persons attended and  decided on a regular 3:30 p.m.  Sunday service.  A. new heating system costing $300 was installed in Roberts Creek Community hall.  Other improvements were reported finished during 1947.  A furnished two-room house  at Middlepoint, Halfmoon Bay  was   advertised   renting   at   $8  per month.  Jack Mayne was appointed  commissioner of oaths for Sechelt filling a great need for  the area.  10 YEARS AGO  Rafters rung to the skirl of  pipes in Sechelt's Legion hall  for the . celebration of Burn's  Night. Jim Parker was master  of ceremonies.  First baby born in St. Mary's  hospital in 1958 was Jacqueline  Paul, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Kennnedy Paul of Sechelt.  A survey of telephones in  use in the area from Port Mellon to Pender Harbor revealed  they numbered 1,443 on the  Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender  Harbor exchanges.  Roberts Creek Arts and  Crafts club celebrated its  eighth anniversary.  This is a long ago story as  our old Ukrainian neighbor  would have called it.  It was in the fall of the  year, late October probably,  and I was due back to school  in a week. I think I was about  seventeen at the time..  Our farm, a largish operation for those days, was located close to a couple of villages,  but we did a good deal of our  business in a town some 30  miles away called Estevan.  Dad had some - business there  and, as I needed a few things  before returning to school, he  took me with him to get whatever it was that I needed.  After Dad had completed his  business we walked to the  Men's and _ Women's. Clothing  Store, and there, in the window, was the COAT. Grey-blue  in color, wide lapels, wide belt,  a stylish coat, a prince of a  coat, and I yearned for it on  sight as a young man yearns  for bis first love. I asked Dad  to buy it for me. Now you must  understand that I had a perfectly good overcoat. I needed that new coat like a cart  needs five wheels: We were a  European family, I was the  eldest son and primogeniture  still meant something. I was  loved, pampered and spoiled.  Dad, much against his better judgement, bought me this  $35 bauble. I had my coat, my  glorious coat. On the way back  home there was little conversation but between the chug-  chug of the model T, I heard  several mumbled damn fools  not knowing if they were meant  for me or for himself.  Now, I must change the direction of the story, In Saskatchewan in those days duck  shooting was the sport of late  October and early November  when the fat mallards move  down from the North. In our  family we started shooting as  soon as we could lift a gun  without a grunt. My brother  Hector, three years younger,'  and I, were avid hunters.  About   four   days   after   the,;  ��� l-''-      ���   ������������ , -J.  trip to Estevan, our neighbor,  a young man named Henry  Kriegley, who was unquestionably the best shot in the Community, called up and with restrained excitement said, "The  ducks are flying in and- out  of Roy's deep slough by the  thousands." Dad was away. I  don't know what we were doing at the time, whatever it  was we dropped it forthwith,  got our guns and a good supply of shells and waited for  Henry to pick us up in his old  Chev.  It was cold, there was a  slight haze in the air and a  couple of inches of snow on  the ground; one had to be  warmly dressed. There must  have been a dozen mackinaws,  sheepskin coats and heavy  leather jackets around the  place; and what did I wear, a  sweater, a woolen jacket and  on top 7 of it all, my glorious  new coat. Hector looked at me  but said nothing. Henry, who  had arrived by this time, looked, shook his head in disgust,  "You'll scare every duck in the  country, with  that   fool   coat."  "Oh no," I said, "I'll leave  it in the car." We left for Roy's  deep slough.  Now I must set this slough  as accurately and as clearly  as I can or the whole point of  the story will toe lost. The water covered about four or five  acres, all of it frozen but a  pool in the centre. It was completely surrounded by a slight  and gentle rise, possibly 30 feet  high. A growth of willows about  ten feet wide circumscribed  the whole pond; then there was  a clear area about 40 feet wide  again surrounding the pond and  finally, a broken growth of  small poplars around the whole  thing.  We got to the spot where  we were to leave the car, it  was further from the slough  than I realized. We took our  guns, our shells and I left my--'  coat on; I would hang it on a  small poplar. The ducks were  flying   all   over   the   place.   It  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOR  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.  Q. I am the landlord under  a lease of commercial property  for three years at $300 per  month. The tenant paid for  four months. He has some furniture on the premises. He  wants to pay me six months  rent as a full settlement and  move out. Can he do this? What  can I do? Can I forceably eject  him?  How do I get my rent?  A. You have a number of  alternate remedies here. You  can seize the furniture for back  rent. It would be best to employ a bailiff whose charges  would be added on. You cannot eject the tenant. If you  want him out you can commence eviction proceedings by  court action. This can be done  in one of two ways; either with  a view of collecting the rent  and forcing the tenant out, or  with a view of collecting the  rent and allowing him to stay  on.  You can sue him by an ordinary law suit for arrears of  payments under the lease, and  continue to do so as future  rent falls into arrears. You  must however, minimize your  loss by attempting to find a  new tenant if the present tenant  has vacated.  The tenant has no right to  insist that you accept six  month's rent or any less than  the full amount owing under  the lease. If the tenant is evicted or  leaves  and  as  long  as  POINT  OF LAW  of ~/r Practicing. cUawyr  he pays the rent or you collect  it by suing you cannot re-rent  the premises. You should, however consider allowing him to  break the lease by agreeing to  accept a mutually agreeable  sum in full settlement. You  may then immediately re-rent  to a new tenant. Perhaps you  could re-rent for a higher rent.  You cannot collect double rent,  I.E. from two tenants unless  you follow this procedure. This  might be the most profitable  course for you to follow.  was going to be a dandy shoot.  I picked my spot, took off my  beautiful coat and hung it carefully on a poplar about 40 feet  from the place I chose to shoot  from. Hector and Henry set  themselves on the spots of their  choice and we started. The  shooting was wonderful, but  my, it was fast. It was just  like skeet shooting. The heavy  mallards,   with  crops  well   fil  led, -, would come scooting over  the ,slight rise and down into  the open part of the pond. I  was doing fairly well, trying  only for one at a time. Hector  and Henry, being better shots,  were occasionally getting doubles,  but not too many.  Suddenly a pair of ducks,  conning directly at me, barely  cleared the rise of land. I took  careful aim, scarcely leading  the front duck and fired. Heavy  number two shot. I missed the  (Continued   on   Page   3)  N.

The custom built cabinets, desks and examining tables by  Richard Birkin, Oceanside Furniture and Cabinet Shop, Roberts  Creek, are a part of the new look.  750'000 copies planned  The first of 750,000 copies of  the British Columbia 1968 Tourist Green Book directory have  started to come from the presses. The current run, 250,000  more than last year, has been  necessary to keep pace with demand.  Everything that might help  this year's visitor has been included. Information on provincial and national parks, campgrounds, picnic sites, marine  parks, border crossing information, synopsis of hunting and  fishing, firearms regulations,  licensed guides, coastal and inland ferry services, and size  of cities, towns, communities  and their facilities are some of  the facts included. The easy-  to-read contents are complemented by strip maps showing  mileage of the areas concerned.  HAD  30  BELOW  WEATHER  Ed. Anderson, one-time proprietor of Gibsons Hardware  store and now at Fraser Lake,  600 miles north of Gibsons visited the Coast News last week  and said he had left 30 below  zero weather when he came  down to Gibsons. The country  where he is now is lake country in rolling land. His job  there is looking after a store  temporarily. He found Gibsons  weather more to his liking.  COURT OF REVISION  NOTICE is hereby given that the Court of Revision respecting the 1968 assessment roll for the Comox Assessment  District will be held as follows:���  School District 47 (Powell River), at Powell River, B.C.,  on Friday, February 2nd, 1968, at 10:00 o'clock in the forenoon, in the Provincial Government Building.  Dated  at   Courtenay  this   15th   day   of  January,   1968.  G. L. HAMILTON,  Provincial Assessor.  BY NANCY  GAYL0RD  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 160 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  Fitted bed sheets with stretch     that require more drying time  corners are now available reports the Canadian Cotton council. Made of cotton percale, the  sheets are designed with  triangles of elasticized webbing  at all four corners. They simplify bed-snaking because any  corner can be the first or last  to go on, expanding easily to  slip over the mattress. The  sheets fit snugly, even with  slight variations in mattress  sizes, because of their expandable corners.  To perk up dark cottons, mix  a little vinegar in the second  rinse when they are laundered.  Use clear water for final rinse.  To get a smoother fit after  washing, put cotton slip covers  back on furniture while they're  still slightly damp. Only areas  need to be pressed.  A poncho to. slip on over a  .bathing suit can be made from  one large striped towel. Cut  the neck out of the centre of  the towel and bind the edges  with red braid. Use more braid  to make side ties at the waist.  A simple beach shift can be  made by sewing two bath  towels together lengthwise,  leaving room for armholes. Use  towels with fringed edges for  a #lever hem treatment. Cut  V-heck and edge with bright  cotton bias tape.  For a romper suit, use one  large beach towel and bind  armholes and a scooped neck  with foldover cotton braid. Run  elastic through the pants legs  for a bloomer effect, and cinch  the waist with braid.  GILMORE'S VARIETY SHOP  SEWING NEEDS, BUTTERJCK PATTERNS . Sei*elt, Ph. 885-9343  D. G.

I didn't  believe it, of course, it was  one of those things that had  happened that couldn't possibly  have happened.  and started towards the house  holding the coat so the tattered  hole - would be completely  visible. Hector followed a few  feet behind and Henry further  behind still so he would be  close to the back door at explosion time.  I walked into the large warm  farm   kitchen  holding  the   coat  towards Dad.  He was reading  his   paper,   he   looked   at   the  coat, he glanced at me, looked  at Hector, looked at the slowly  retreating    Henry    and    came  back   to. me   and   there   were  tears   in  his   eyes.   "If  I  had  a  son who was a  murderer I  would, defend him with the best  lawyer I could get;  if I had a  son who  was a  thief I  would  follow his steps and make good  the thefts;  if I had a son who  was a liar I would follow him  with  the  truth,   but  what   can  a father do who has a fool for  a son."  Silently, quietly, I crossed  the kitchen, entered the corridor to the stairs and climbed to my room. Shaken and  appalled,   I  realized  that  Dad  Hector and Henry, through  that understanding given to  friends and brothers, knew  something had gone wrong and  came to me. I didn't see or  hear them, all I could do was  stare at the coat. They didn't  laugh, they didn't talk, they  were as heartbroken as I was.  The shooting stopped, and, as  we couldn't stay at the frozen  slough for the rest of our days,  we started for home. I have  seen many a more cheerful  funeral cortege. I sat in the  back, folded the coat so I  couldn't see the gaping hole  and was silent. Was I ever in  for it, oh, was I ever in for it.  Dad was a ~gentle man, but "'""  by no means soft, excitable and  very quick tempered.  We got to the yard. The car  was in the garage. Dad was  home. The weight of my disgrace and stupidity had to be  made known. I got out first  was completely right.  About four days later I was  ready to leave for school. Dressed in my best suit, with money  for the term in my pocket and  wearing my perfectly good old  overcoat, I went into the living  room to say good-bye to Dad.  He smiled at me as we shook  hands and then,, with a grin  of pure mischief on his face,  put his hand in his pocket and  took out an envelope. Before  I even touched it I knew what  it was. Money for a new coat.  With that same mischievous  grin on his face, he said "You  know Jules, it is not a mortal  sin to be a fool ��� occasionally.  The question of coats was  suddenly inconsequential but  the knowledge that my father  believed that a man had the  God-given right of making a  fool of himself ��� occasionally  ��� was tremendously important.  I left the house with a light  heart.  Summer visitor  Residents of the Redrooffs  resort were shocked to hear  of the violent death of Sidney  McDonald well known business  promoter in West Vancouver  over the weekend.  Mr. McDonald had become  identified with this area several years ago through his wife,  the former Wendy McPherson  who had grown up as a summer  resident  of Redrooffs.  According to Mrs. Jim Cooper, wife of the storekeeper, the  McDonalds made infrequent  trips to their summer place.  Mr. McDonald was spoken of  as a quiet, friendly soft spoken  person, who while not identifying himself actively with the  community of summer folk,  was well regarded by those who    I  came in contact with him. *���  The Arts Council Gallery shop,  Wharf   Street,   Sechelt,   closed  since Christmas, re-opened Wednesday with a one man show of  paintings by Fred Carney.   >  The 15 -paintings which Mr.  Carney has chosen cover a  period of five years from 1963  to a gay Italian landscape spilling out over the frame dated  1968.

Montgomery, West  Sechelt, Jan. 17. These teas  were started a few. years before her death by Mrs. Ernest  Redman, for thfe purpose of  building a fund to go towards  a rectory for St. Hilda's Church  The teas are held once a  month in one of the A.C.W.'s  homes, and the members bring  a friend to enlarge the Friendship Circle.  There were 31 ladies present  at Mrs. Montgomery's and several new acquaintances were  made. Mrs. A. Dawe presided  at the tea table while several  members helped with the serving of the refreshments. Over  $1,000 has already been raised.  This past week saw quite a  few local residents from the  Sunshine Coast at the annual  Logger's convention in Vancouver. Among these were Mr.  and Mrs. R. Malpass, Mr. and  Mrs. P. Mullen, Mr. and Mrs.  T. Rodway, and Mr. and Mrs.  C. Rodway.  We have had everything in  the weatherman's book thrown  at us this past winter; and I  use the term past very lightly.  We've had the highest tides,  the heaviest winds, the wettest  rains, and it looks like one of  the earliest springs. When the  rains were pelting down, everyone kept saying at least you  don't have to shovel it, but  there were plenty of people  wishing they could have shovelled some of it off their property this past week or so. If  this had happened at the same  time as the storm in December, we would have been one  large lake surrounded by  ocean.

JENKS HAVE SON  Rev. and Mrs. Barry Jenks  of Sechelt are proud parents  of a son born Jan. 19 at St.  . Mary's hospital. Weight at  birth was 7.8 pounds and his  name is Timothy David, a  brother for Susan,  aged three.  Letters to. editor y  The following is a copy to  the Coast News, of a letter for  Peter Wilson, Secretary-treasurer, Sechelt School District  (No.  46).  Dear Mr. Wilson: Will you  please request the School Board  to have signs posted at each  entrance to Gibsons Elementary School grounds stating No  Entry. I do nOt believe No Stopping or No Parkings will suffice.  I have seen people get out of  their vehicles and leave the  motor running. They think this  constitutes rio stopping.  It is quite enough to see the  total disregard of the law regarding, the speed limit of 20  miles an hour, refusing students the right-of-way in the  crosswalk, letting children out  on the No Stopping side and  knowing there is no patrol or  protection for the kindergarten  pupils dismissed at 11:30 a.m.  or the pupils starting at 12:30,  without now allowing the public to drive in the school  grounds! And what about the  fire danger?  I also think a Warning to Motorists notice should be put in  the local papers outlining the  Motor Vehicle act with regard  to school zones. There is no  excuse for a licensed motorist  to be ignorant of the law, but  I can only assume they are ignorant, oc. else 4his community  is rampant with intentional lawbreakers.  Prevention not punishment is  my objective but I am going  to start reporting, licence numbers to the R.C.M.P. ��� Mrs.  Patricie Fromager.  Mrs. Whitworth  Mrs. Margaret Helen Whitworth, 90, passed away in St.  Mary's Hospital, Sechelt, on  January 14, was an early settler in Roberts Creek, having  lived there 50 years.  Born in California, she was  brought as a small child to  Victoria. Her father, .the late  John Hill, a building contractor, after being wiped out by  the Vancouver fire of 1886,  brought the family to that city  within the year. He contributed  much to the re-ibuildihg of the  city and was also building in- :.  spector of schools^ Mrs. Whitworth was predeceased -by her  husband the late J. W. Whitworth, in 1938.  She leaves to mourn her loss  her daughter, Mrs. John T.  (Madge) Newman, Roberts  Creek, one grandson,, Jeff  Newman, Edmonton; three  great grandchildren; several  nieces and nephews among  whom are Mrs. Ruth Mitchell  and Mrs. Helen Galliford, Roberts Creek.        ;   v-  A JOINT SERVICE  A joint Anglican and United  church service will be held  Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in St.  Bartholomew's Anglican church  get set  Coast News, Jan. 25, 1968.  {-^'\��jrxMj*^^\f<r%vts^  A 5c Meteorological stamp to be issued by the Canada Post Office on March 13 commemorates the 200th anniversary of Canada's  first long-term fixed point weather observations, Postmaster General Jean-tPierre Cote announces.    \  The weather is acknowledged to have a stronger and more  continuous impact on our lives than any other feature of the environment in which we live and pioneer weather weather observers  led to a vital modern service provided by the Meteorological branch  Department of Transport, whereby untold loss of life and property is nowadays averted by special bulletins ranging from frost  warnings for agriculturalists to hurricane alerts; aviation, industry, public utilities, shipping, agriculture and forest interests depend, on. forecast services provided by the meteorologists.

Hard working members like  her are an asset to any organization.  Chocolates were also sold during the Christmas season. It was  no hard chore selling these as  everyone   really  enjoyed  them.

FLOUJt FROM FISH  Future use of fish protein concentrate is under consideration  says a report in the current  Fisheries' of Canada publication.  It discusses the possible breakthrough in commercial production of fish protein concentrate  in Canada.  The single most critical cost  factor governing the production was the landed cost of fish.  Fish concentrate production or  PPC as it is known could permit considerably more utilization of trash fish and eventually  become of important nutritive  value in various foods including  "ereals.

An oldtimer challenge  "It's strange how a single  circumstance can change the  whole course of one's life" '...' .  commented R. Birkin, the cabinet-maker and proprietor of  Oceanside Furniture and Cabinet Shop,  Roberts  Creek.  In my case it was Charlie  Cassidy, a real old-timer of  this area, who passed along  six years ago at the age of  78 . . . Charlie was one of the  finest artisans of his time. I  first ran into him 30 years ago  when he was quarry foreman,  on the construction of the Court  House in Vancouver. It was he  who threw the challenge to me  to do every job a little better  than the last, and many a weekend we rambled along the beach  here in front of has cottage  talking of cabbages and kings  and life in general.  It   took   a  little     time     for  Charlie's philosophy to sink in  .  .  .. I had already nine years  at Sigurdson's Millworks where  I learned the business of cabinetry  ......   then another  five  years on my own doing custom  jobs   for   Simpson   Sears   con- -  tract   sales,  which   included   a  number   of   interesting- assignments up on British Properties.  Meantime we'd come under  the spell of the Sunshine Coast  and picked up this bit of land  in 1948, but it wasn't until 1958  when my wife Fay and I found  ourselves fed up to the teeth  chasing the almighty buck, so  we just said, to heck with all  that, and came out here for  some real living, where there's  space to grow and fresh air to  breathe, not to mention a good  healthy and natural environment for our three children,  Ken, Jeffrey and Barbara:  We've never once looked  back, not once, and the free  and easy atmosphere and good  living fits in perfectly with my  work. I never take on more  than one job at a time, and  there are always folk waiting  for me to get around to looking after them. Sure it's a challenge, and one of the most interesting assignments was the  job to fit out Norm Burley's  kitchen   at  Sechelt.   There's   a  whale of a lot of satisfaction  in being given a free hand to  carry out your own ideas.  A more recent project was  the calbinet work in the remodelled staff lunch room and  new bookkeeping office at the  Medical Centre, Sechelt, along  with the construction of examining tables and fixtures in  the new consulting rooms.  The fact that Dick Birkin  modestly admits to ibeing a  l/64th-of-an-inch-man testifies  to his superb workmanship in  all phases of cabinetry.

Sechelt's municipal council at  its' meeting on Wednesday night  of last week has been advised  by Dr. P. J. Reynolds, director  of Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit  to start looking into the sewer  situation for the village.  Council , including two new  councillors, Harold Nelson and  Charles E. Rodway, was informed that the council has had  a sewage survey and furthermore before a. sewage system  can be considered; the water  problem would have to be solved. Council is now obtaining an  evaluation of the Sechelt Waterworks and should have the  report soon; -'������'������   Y  A $197,700--'7 sewage 7- disposal  proposal was given to Sechelt's  council at its Jan. 21, 1965 meeting. The proposal presented  would cover a population in the  system of 3,100. Since then the  report has lain dormant in Municipal hall files. > Councillors  have given the report some  study but realizing the village  financial position could not  stand such expense, have proceeded no further with it.  The letter from Dr. Reynolds  is regarded as a reminder to  council that government policy  has taken away from municipalities sole power to decide on  sewage systems.  In the $197,700, the Martin  Dayton  report  allowed  for in  flation of approximately 20 percent. Based on a projection covering : a few more years it is  exected that by 1974 the cost  would rise 40 percent if the  present inflationary trend continues. ���  The present septic tank situation in Sechelt is not'regarded as menacing to public health  with the exception of a few low  spots. Like Gibsons municipal  council Sechelt councillor are  of the opinion if the governihent  want- sewage systems done in a  hurry there should be some financial1 assistance supplied. Se-  chelt'si borrowing power is close  to $150,000 and Gibsons $100,000  plus; due to the $113,000 water  bylaw.       Y     '-.,_/���  It was decided that a meeting of council with Mr. Dayton be arranged at some future  date. Dr. Reynolds will be informed of Sechelt present position as regards a future sewerage system.  Councillor Morgan Thompson  reported on continued vandalism at the Hackett Park building. Councillor Charles E. Rod-  way brought up the matter of  keeping the village office open  during the lunch hour and this  was agreed to. The chairman  doubted the advisibility of  keeping it open that hour.  Bylaw 81 'covering re-zoning  on Porpoise Bay Road was  given  its  final     reading .

There  were still certain formalities to  be , finalized but as soon as  these are completed the work  will commence. It is estimated  that 10 units should be ready  for occupation by the fall.  At the end of February, the  major fund raising drive will  be launched with a mail campaign covering everybody from  Port Mellon to Egmont. Canon  Minto Swan will be in charge  of the campaign.  Several members have expressed intense interest in the  subject of the amalgamation of  the OAPO and the Senior Citizens' association, which would  strengthen the cause of the  elder citizen, of Canada. It was  urged that at the next North 7  Shore Regional meeting, a  strong recommendation be  made that every effort be di-i  rected towards such amalgamation.  On  behalf   of   the members,  Mr.   Hill   wished   Godspeed   to  Canon  and   Mrs.   Greene   who  are leaving for a  trip to England at the end of the month.

This was  followed by a  sing-'  song with a Scottish flavor, accompanied by Mrs. Edna Cal-  bick.  8       Coast News, Jan. 25, 1968.  Writers at work!  Author Raymond Hull, instructor in the creative writing  class, now in session every  Monday night; at Elphinstone  , Secondary^;said recently that he  often heard would-be writers  moaning; that-they live in the  wrong place: If they could live  in Montreal; or San Francisco,  or Timbuctoo, they Would have  something to write about.  To th'is Mr. Hull said: "I tell  them to stay right where they  are. There's plenty of literary  material in every town and village, even on a desert island.  Think of Thoreau! Think of  Robinson Crusoe!"  The result of Mr. Hull's at-  * titude is that his creative writ-  OFFICE  UNLIKELY  The possibility of opening a  Canada Manpower Centre on  the Sunshine Coast appears  slim according to information  supplied by Jack Davis, M.P.  for Coast-Capilano.  Information to Mr. Davis  from the office of the minister  of manpower and immigration  is that preliminary studies of  the department on the west  coast lean towards -the opening  of an office in Squamish area  but as the study is of a preliminary nature only there is  nothing definite on it. At present there are only three points  of service in the Pacific re^  gion, at Burnaby, Terrace and  Fort St. John. ���  ing classes are lively and interesting. He encourages his students to submit scripts. Each  script receives a written analysis from the instructor. Scripts  are  analyzed in  class.  Mr. ^Hull's philosophy of action will carry over into a new  course in dynamic psychology  which he will be teaching beginning Feb. 7. For information  about the dynamic psychology  course call the Adult Education  Department,  886-2241.  (Continued from Page 1)  The executive also decided  to send a letter to Premier Bennett as follows: "Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  views with some discomfort the  proposal to supply a ferry every two hours, regarding it as  a step backwards and urges  the Ferry Authority to reconsider the position.  As regards the labor situation it feels that the wholesale  layoff is too severe and urges  some consideration be 'given  these men and families.  Construction of the new terminal facilities at Horseshoe  Bay is well under way, the British Columbia Ferry Authority  has announced, however preliminary grading work combined with last week's heavy rainfall have made parking in the  terminal, area extremely difficult.  The new multi-level terminal  is expected to be completed in  July of this year. In the interim; there will be only limited'  parking at Horseshoe Bay and  travellers to and from Nanaimo,  the Sunshine Coast and Bowen  Island are advised to travel by  bus, arrange to be dropped off  and picked up, or take their  cars aboard the ferries.
