They follow:  Finance Committee report on  a -tetter of the pro-tern executive of the Sunshine Coast Regional Ratepayers' Assn., dated  July 14.  When the chairman of the Regional board charged the finance  comimittee to prepare a report  in reply to a number of questions by the pro-tern executive  of the Sunshine Coast Ratepayers' Association, he expressed  grave concern that the pro-tern  executive was actually not seeking answers to specific questions  but ^on-y publicity. The finance  committee shares this concern  and has come to the conviction  that the letter is ilso part of a  continuing jcast-pai^^^ to  the district into disrepute and to  run down its efforts to bring improvements to the electoral  areas of the Sunshine Coast.  This campaign has been waged for some time now'by certain  personages, who believe that  their positions in the community  are so important that they are  entitled to command the Board  to act to their bidding. So far,  such attempts have not been successful, as the Board has to do  its job to the best of its ability  on behalf of all people, whether  they consider themselves very  important or just ordinary citizens.  The chairman's and finance  committee's apprehension about  the sincerity of the pro-tem executive appears justified after  study of the letter in detail.  Some of the questions were put  with only a pretense of expertise, others were based) on pure  ly personal but uniniformed opinions. The rest consists of a number of non-factual statements  with questions asked about these  statements. The letter ends with  some wild accusations and slogans, in which platitudes are  fairly evenly mixed with threats  against the elected members of  the board.  However the finance committee, after having been charged  by the board to report on the  matter, decided to disaregard the  obvious propaganda completely  and to assume.that answers to  at least some of the questions  could be in the public interest,  if they could be stripped of their  verbiage, more clearly defined  and their actual meaning clarified. For this purpose, finance  committee chairman immediately endeavored! to arrange, a  meeting with the proiteir��execur  tive -oif the ratepayers' association tos^tam;ther clarification.  ���v; But Jut four surprise ai-oVcdnster-  ^nation^^ tlie- -pro4em ch#  and the pro-tem secretary flatly  refused. The finance committee  is forced, therefore, to conclude  that thepurpose of the^letter  was not to show any sincere desire to be helpful to the Board  or the people of the Sunshine  Coast, but only to seek publicity  lor the to-be-formed ratepayers**  association and to get Thold of  cash iby peddling memberships.  So, if this report does not fully answer all the so-called questions, such shortcomings can be  blamed more on the finance com  mittee chairman's "poverty of  intellect" than on his "warped  mayorality concept." However  the finance committee wishes to  emphasize that their effort to  provide answers was neither increased nor diminished by the  hysterical outbursts of the pro-  tem chairman of the ratepayers  association during a public  (Continued on Page 2A)  Resignation denied  Rumors that Drector Frank  West of the Regional District  board Area E (Gibsons Rural)  had turned in his resignation to  the board were denied at Thursday night's board meeting last  week by Director West who said  so in the following statement:  "To give re-assurance to my  voter-electors in area E and to  disabuse the pro-tem executive  of the Sunshine Coast Ratepayers' Association" and/or the Peninsula Times (I have difficulty  lately to keep those two apart  as separate bodies) of any false-  hope: I herewith state that I  have not resigned as director of  Area E. Having once accepted  the honor of being their representative on the Reigional Board,  -I am determined to carry out  the duties of my office until my  tfrdends, the voter-electors of  Area E ��� and they alone ��� decide otherwise.  "I further assure you that I  have*not the slightest intention  -to even consider resignation before my term is up. I agree that  ���thisTmay be somewhat disap-  ipointing to the pro-tem apostles  of-the'new faith1 in fulmination  that   they   are   presently   not  called upon to be the saviors of  area E. But, unfortunately, I  cannot be got rid of that easily  by mere wishful thinking or kiteflying."  The rumor also mentioned the  name of Director Lome Wolverton of area F (Langdale) as also  having turned in his resignation.  Secretary Charles Gooding has  stated he has no resignations  ifrom anyone. Director Wolverton was absent on vacation for  last week's Regional District  meeting.

Last Thursday night's meeting of the Regional District board  smacked considerably of election campaign tactics*.  First caime an attack on* Mayor Wally Peterson of Gibsons by  Director Harry Almond of Roberts Creek area.  Nest Director Frank West quashed a report which has been  circulating from Sechelt. This report also linked Director Lome  Wolverton in the resignation bracket but as he is away on holidays  there is neither confirmation or denial available.  Director Almond did not Ike Mayor Peterson's sarcastic or  scoffing statements while presiding as mayor in Gibsions council  chamber. These statements, Director Almond felt were meant to  belittle or malign the Regional Board.  The remark by Director Almond can be supported by others  who have attended council meetings. The mayor's general attitude  has been that nothing ever really occurs at Regional' meetings. As  Gibsons representative to the Regional board it has been his duty  to report back to council on the activities of the board. This he has  failed to do on many occasions.  To get the Regional Board's water policy known to Gibsons aldermen the Regional Board arranged some time ago that Gibsons  council appoint the chairman of its water committee to attend Regional water meetings.  (In case some readers do not know both Gibsons and' Seehlelt  villages are part of the Regional District with seats on the District board. On a population basis;'.Gibsons has two votes and Se-  chelt one.)  Director Almond in concluding his remarks said that if Director Peterson cannot frame himsef to a better attitude of normal  participation perhaps he should appoint some other member of  council with a 'more mature outlook, willing to accept the* res;-  ponsilbility of representing the village of Gibsons an a more normal  and honest manner.  (Directors do have alternates and Mayor Peterson's is Alderman Gerry Dixon who attends meetings with him.)  "The rumors concerning Directors West and Wolverton imply r  ing that they had turned in their"resignations originates, as Mr.  West said, in Sechelt. The only person wiho inquired at the Coast  News office whether it was true, was Mayor Peterson. On checking with the Regional board it was learned the report was not true.  Tying in with these two situations are remarks by Director  West ;as -chairman ol the aboard^^^jfinan^,:con__-_ittee when replying  to the ���'���July 14 Ifetter from the pr^-teon Sunshine Coast Regional  Ratepayers'association executive. These remarks follow:  "When the chairman of the Regional Board charged the finance  committee to prepare a report in reply to a number of questions  by the pro-tem executive of the Sunshine Coast Ratepayers Association, he expressed grave concern that the pro-tem executive  was actualy not seeking answers to specific questions, but only publicity. '  "The finance committee shares this concern and has come to  the conviction that the letter is also part of a continuing campaign  to bring the district into disrepute and to run down its efforts to  bring improvements to the electoral areas of the Sunshine Coast.  This campaign has been waged for some time now by certain personages, who believe that their positions in the .mmunity are so  important that they are entitled to command the Board to act to  their bidding. So far, such attempts have not been successful, as  the board has to do its job to the best of its ability on behalf of all  people, whether they consider themselves very important or just  ordinary citizens."  The situation within the Regional Board r ; regards directors  endling their terms this year, reveals that Chairman J. H. Tyner  of Madeira Park will seek re-election for Area A (Pender Harbour)  and Director Frank West for Area E (Gibsons Rural). The tHird  man will be Director Hubert A. Slade representing Area C (Selma  Park). His intentions are not yet cear.  It should be expected that this campaign against members of  the Reigional board, now that it has started, will become more disparaging as election time draws closer.  However, Director West in his reply to questions asked by the  Sunshine Coast Regional Ratepayers association on July 14 implied that all is not lost yet! The pro-tem executive aptpaflenitly is  beginning to realize that their credibility could only be enhanced  if their statements could be backed up by some fact. So, Director  West continues, they decided to form a fact-finding committee.  Such a project is welcome, because a ratepayers association which  only operates on hearsay and prejudices is not much good to anybody. (Director West's reply to the July 14 series' of questions  will be found starting on Page One).  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Mrs. Isabel Dawson, Soared;  Tony Gargrave, NDP, and Joe  Benner, Liberal, were nominated for the Sept. 12 provincial  election.

A Savary  (By ERIC THOMSON)  On last Easter Monday, I took  an early morning walk along the  Savary Island beach at low tide,  and I th-ught that I had that  half-mile. wide , expanse to myself, but I came across a small  girl wrapped in thought and not  much else, who was digging a  hole in the sand. She was my  .gii_~friend Tricia, of yester-year:.  A year ago at Easter, when I  played my bagpipes in front of  my son's house, it brought a  fairy elf, on the run through the  salal from where her parents  were clearing a lot nearby. This ,  was Tricia, then aged 5, ;a  (blonde with two" pigtails, 'but  when her hair was loosened, she  looked very like Tenniel's Alice.  We exchanged greetings this  morning, and when I asked her  how things were going, she replied, and I qiiote, that she had  a problem. I explained that T  was a lawyer, and my services  were at her disposal. With commendable briefness she explained that she had been born on  Easter Sunday, but Easter ��� Sunday moved round a bit, and that  the date was the 18th.     _  I said that her mother might  not look with favor on a double-  header, an Easter Sunday birthday party on Savary, and another in North Vancouver on the  18th, but it was wonderful to be  able to spend Easier Sunday at  Savary, as my son and I had  done for years, tout to be able  to have a birthday party there  on Easter Sunday ' was something special, so, from now on,  my son and I, who came well  prepared, would like to have  Tricia and her mother along to  a tea-party on Easter Sundays;  Tricia told me that she had  something for me, and disappeared up, and over the bank. I  expected some sample of marine  biology, tout Tricia re-appeared  with a hen-sized chocolate Eas  ter egg in one hand, and' in the  other, a miniature bottle of De-  war's Scotch whisiky. To one  who had been sceptical of fair-/  ies, this seemed convincing proof'  of their existence.1 There were  two sequels to this encounter.  The one was that Tricia's mother spoke to me next day, and  said that Tricia wished! she had  a grandfather, and that she  would like the old man next door  This is about the nicest compliment I have ever received, and  I gladly became an adopted  grandfather.  The other was this: Two years  ago, when my wife and I were  last at Savary, we arranged! for  Willie, our son, and Wehdly, his  wife, to take us over to Lund in  their boat, and then in their car  down to Powell River, to get the  Sechelt bus to home. Wendy then  said that they were going to fly  from Powell River to Vancouver  spend the night there, and go  out to Surrey next day to pick up  a 10-days-old baby girl for adoption, and that they were going  to call- her after -her grandmothers, Laura Mary.  This announcement, to put it  mildly, startled the potential  grandmother, but on the airriyal  of the infant! all doubts were resolved and she has been in every way a charming addition to  the family. She was born on  July 22. One day this spring,  when our Wendy, who has a Hibernian background, was having  tea with me on our verandah at  Hopkins, she was eating the last  of a Molly O'Rourke cake from  Dublin, Ireland, and remarked  that it would make a good birthday cake.  Then and there it was arranged to have, a birthday party for  Laura May at Savary, and as I  was (born on July 19,1 suggested  a joint birthday party between  these dates, and I would get the  cakes. So, there were two of  these   Irish   cakes,   two   blue  candles on the one and two pink  candles on the other, and the  weatherman was more than kind  so on the afternoon oif Ihe 21st,  all Rabbit's friends and rela^  tions gathered around an elderly Pooh and- the tea table, which  was set in the glade between  house and the sea*, and enjoyed  themselves to the full.  On behalf of my grand-daughter and myself, I had to say a  lot of thank-yous. particularly to  Willie and Wendy that we were  "*^**0***l^****^**0+^*^0*0*  2      Coast News, Sept. 1, 1071.  both in that beautiful .place, and  that it was not often that one  .celebrant was 41 times the age  of the other. It was quite an experience to be sitting there, with  my adopted grand-daughter on  one side of me, and with the  wise little girl who had adopted  me as a grandfather on the  other. I gave the first little girl  Beatrix Potter's books, but I  was puzzled as to what to give  Tricia, but the answer was sitting beside me, I gave her am  extra nice grandmother.  N.

Utterances by Gibsons Mayor  Wally Peterson described as sarcastic of scoffing nature and  meant to1 belittle or malign the  Regional hoard were brought to  the attention of the board at its  Thursday night meeting last  week by Regional Director Harry Almond of Roberts Creek  area. Here is- the statement read  to the board by Director Almond:  "I have noticed for some time  that one of my fellow directors,  namely Wally Peterson, has on  frequent occasions used! Gibsons  council chamber as a platform  to make public vairious statements of a sarcastic or scoff hug  nature which. I have felt were  meant to belittle or malign the  Regional board, of which he is  a memiber.  "The latest remark goes, I  feel, a little too far. This was  his recent statement that "they"  meaning the Regional board -(of  which he is a member) success- 7  fully brushed aside the letter  from the new Regional Ratepayers group, and something to the  effect that the meeting was  rushed and we finished earljy.  "Now I don't know how anyone can feel we (brushed aside  anything. The matter of answering the questions asked was put  to the finance committee. If Director Peterson thought that this  was brushing the matter aside  why did he remain silent?  "A motion was put and carried  unanimously with no dissenting  voice. Each director has the  right to speak out and if necessary vote 'No.' If I sit silent  during any discussion I would .  expect anyone to assume that I  agree with the conclusions reach  ed and decisions made. Director.  Peterson perhaps feels that by  sitting silent and not votings he  somehow disassociates himself  from the rest of us.  'I don't - know  why he feels  that he comes here as an antagonist, with himself on one side  and   "they"  meaning  the rest  of Ihe board meimbers, on the  other. I'm sure no other member feels this way. I aim sure  also  that my fellow members  have no desire to meddle in the  ad-fairs. or take over the functions of Gibsons Council ��� or  Sechelt either for that matter.  Regardless of whether this regular meeting goes  on for -two  hours or four, there are many  hours  of   hard:  work  at other  meetings  and  an awful  lot of  homework just dealing with the  regular business of the District,  which would! certainly discourage me, and I feel, the rest of  the board members from seeking further powers and responsi-  bMtieS;;--;.:;' '������,;���;.���;_-,   ��� XX:  .}.:,X::i X.:  If Director Peterson i c^nnM  frame himself to a better attitude of normal participation perhaps he should appoint some  other member of the council with  a more mature outlook, willing  to accept the responsibility of-  representing the Village of Gibsons in a more normal and honest manner."  Commenting on remarks made  by Director Harry Almond at  last week's Regional1 board meet  ing, Mayor Wally Peterson at  Tuesday night's Gibsons council  meeting said that one of the,  new members of the board maintained that Mayor Peterson was  not having enough to say at Regional Board meetings.

The European spindle bush is a  large shrub .growing, to 10 feet  high or more, with bright red  seed pods that open to reveal  orange-coated seeds. The deep  : red variety, Fructo-coccinea, is  an excellent selection, and Red  Cascade has penulous branches  of bright red fruits.  The winterberry or inkberry is  a native shrub with vivid red  , hollylike fruits. It is related to  the English holly but does not  have the same prickly evergreen  leaves. It should be planted in  groups of three to five because  cross-pollination is ncessary for  good fruit production.  Other red-fruited shrubs are:  ���Wright's viburnum, a Japanese  species with thick leaves, bright  red fruits and real crimson  leaves in the fall;7the Canadian  and Europeian eldenberries with  bright red and deep red fruits,  ideal for growing in the shade;  and the highbush and European  cranberries,    which    have --.ex-  Do you know?

The firehorns. which are hardy in the milder parts of Canada  all have bright orange berries  and are unsurpassable when a  berried effect is desired* They  may be grown as dwarf or large  shrubs or trained as espaliers  along a well. They provide excellent food for birds.  Blue: There are only a few  blue-fruited shrulbs. The. Oregon  grape is exceptionally good because of its hollylike leaves. It  is equally at home in full sun or :  part shade and grows no more  than three feet high. The Can-  aert and Grey Owl junipers, the  former with green foliage, and  the latter with silver leaves,  have waxy, bright blue berries..  The arrow^wood is a large vigor-  .ous shrub. related to the high-  bush cranberry and useful for  almost. total shade. The fringe  tree grows so large that it almost becomes a tree, although it  really belongs in the shrub category. It produces large, bloomy  blue fruits in fall and white, lilaclike flowers in June.  Black: Two good black-fruited  shrubs aire the fblack chokeberry  and the wayfaring tree. The  black chokeberry has shiny  black berries and also blazing  fall foliage. The wayfaring tree  is a very large shrub which, if  grown to a. single stem, will  form a small tree. This is the  very first plant to change color  in the Arboretum during the  fall.  Yellow: The best hardy yellow  fruited shrubs are the yellow-  fruited honeysuckle and the yellow-fruited European cranberry  bush. Both ,have lustrous deep  golden-yellow fruits, but those of  the cranberry last longer.  White: There are'quite a few.  good white-fruited shrubs, but  the best of all is the popular  snowfberry which produces large  snowy white berries in fall, and  the variety 'Mother of Pearl'  which is quite distinct with rosy-  tinted berries. The Siberian dogwood' also produces waxy white,  fruits, but these are at their best  in early summer.

Part of the joy of growing  flowers is to be able to cut them  for use in the home or church.  Keen gardeners also exhibit specimen blooms or arrangements  an local fairs or flower shows.  Most people go into their gardens, cut flowers from all kinds  Of plants, bring them indoors  and place them in vases or con-  ainers with little consideration  of methods they might adopt to  make them last longer in water.  Some flowers, such as chrysanthemums-, will take this kind  of treatment and last for days  while others will start to deteriorate immediately. By treating  the flowers almost every kind  may be made to last longer.  Even a wilted flower will often  revive and continue to look  fresh if recut.  Cut flowers take up water  through the stem. If they are  left out of water for any length  of time, the free How of water  up the stems may be impeded.  This is why so many florists advise cutting the stems under water; by so doing, the water fills  the stems. A sharp knife should  always be used for cutting flowers to give a clean cut.  Aifter cutting, immediately  place the flowers in water at  room temperature. Most flowers  absorb warm water more readily than cold. If possible, take  a, pail ol warm1 water to the  garden early in the morning before the sun rises high in the  sky. Place the cut flowers immediately in the warm water.  Only the base of the stems needs  to be covered1.  I�� early morning is not convenient cut them in the late evening when the water in the  stems has been replenished. Cut  the stems on a slant as this  gives more surface area for wa^  ter absorbtion. After cutting,  place the pail of flowers in a  cool, dark basement for at least  three hours. This will condition  the flowers in preparation for  .arranging..  By following these suggestions  you wills be able to extend the  cut life of most flowers. There  are certain kincte, however, that  need special treatment before  placing them in water. Woody  plants such as lilac, forsythia  and crafoapples should have the  lower two or three inches of  stem crushed with a hammer or  slit an inch or so with a sharp  knife. Woody types of perennials  such as asters and phlox also  respond to this treatment.  The stems of buddleia, dahlias  and zinnias should be placed in  very hot water for a few seconds and then immersed imme-  diately in cold water. When doing this take care to protect  the flowers from steam by wrapping them first in newspaper  and allowing only the stems to  protrude.  Tulips should ibe rolled in paper and their stems immersed  full length in water overnight.  SNORKELS, MASKS, FINS  DIVING RENTALS  WALT NYGREN SALES  (1971)  LTD.

Cat-tails will keep for a long  time if dipped in clear shellac or  painted with clear nail polish to  prevent bursting. Do not place  these in water.  Poinsettias-, milkweed, oriental' and other types of poppies  should have the ends of their  stems seared by the heat from  a match. Poppies should be cut  the night before they open;  these and other flowers that are  likely to close can be held open  if some melted wax is dropped  in the centre of the flower.  Except for dried flowers, regardless of stem treatment, hardening off for a period in a cool  dark place is the most important operation and the one usually neglected.        .:.������-.  Do not discount the effect of  commercial flower preserva-  ives.

Premier W. A. C. Bennett has  called attention to the figures  released by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, Ottawa, which  state   that in July, 1970  there  were   8431,000   people   gainfully  employed in British  Columbia.  In July 1971 there were 891,000  persons     gainfully ' employed,  making   an   addition   of   48,000  more employed in British Columbia compared to July last year.  Due to the large increase of  people moving to British Columbia our laibor force jumped from  919,000 to 950,000 ������ an increase  of 31,000 for the year. In spite  of this British Columbia still  showed a reduction in the unem  ployed for the year, from July  to July, of 17,000.   -  In July 1970 there were 76,000  persons unemployed, co-mpaied  to 59,000 in'July 1971 ��� a difference of 17,000. The percentage  rate of unemployed persons in  July 1970 was 8.3% and 6.2% in  July 1971.  The premier stated that while  unemployment is still high in  British Columbia-, it is how showing the lowest percentage in two  years.

THE GOVERNMENT  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  announces:  AninfamH-ipn  education program to  of all ages reach an  of the use  alcohol, and tobacco.  In his Budget Speech in February, this year,  The Honourable W. A. C. Bennett, -Premier and Minister  of Finance, made the following statement:  "Social problems which inflict a great deal of  grief and sorrow upon individuals result from the use of  alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. The Government has  made a contribution for many years to both the Alcoholicand  Narcotic Foundations and these will be continued.  "However,.it is the Governments conviction a  more aggressive and expanded education, prevention and  rehabilitation program must be undertaken to alleviate  these problems.  "As the work will be a continuing program  benefiting future as well as present generations, I will  recommend the establishment of a $25,000,000 perpetual  fund, with the annual interest earnings being used  to finance the program.  "The Fund will be known as the "Drug* Alcokol,  and Cigarette Education, Prevention, and Rehabilitation  Fund" and will be set up out of the current fiscal-year  revenues or from the budgetary cash reserve.  . "As in the other perpetual funds established by  the Government, an advisory committee will be appointed to  recommend on the distribution of the Fund's income"  Since this announcement, the advisory*  committee has initiated a far-reaching study of ways and  means of putting the Government's policy to work.  Plans are being made to expand the prevention,  treatment and rehabilitation facilities throughout  British Columbia.  An appraisal has been made of various methods  of educating British Columbia's school children and  college students about the risks involved in the  consumption of drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. Proposals  are now being prepared for the Department of Education.  Because these are problems that affect every  one of us, a most important question was how to educate  and inform all the people of this large Province as  efficiently and effectively as possible. The decision was  made to prepare an information and education program  for use in the mass media ������ newspapers, radio and  television���and to support this effort with guidance  material such as pamphlets and films.  This program is a crusade against carelessness,  indifference, and ignorance. It is important to  everyone who is concerned with the quality of life.  It is your problem as well as ours and your support and  understanding are vital to its success:  It is our hope that the more people understand  the problems created by the abuse of drugs, alcohol, and  tobacco the more they will be able to cope with them  and find solutions within themselves. -  GOVERNMENT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  COUNCIL ON DRUGS, ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO  Hon.

He, therefore, wants to convert the joint  tenancy to a tenancy in common. This he cannot do directly  without Mary's cooperation.  He can, however, achieve the  same object by transiferring his  one-half to a third party. Johi.  can 'sell" his one-half, for example, to his lawyer for $1, his  lawyer can 'sell" back to him  for $1. This automatically breaks  the joint tenancy and John and  Mary become tenants in common.  If John draws a will properly  worded, on his death, the land  would have to be sold and the  proceeds divided between Mary  and John's estate. Needless to  say, these transfers of the one-  half share in the land and the  drawing of. the will1 can be done  without Mary's knowledge. This  can, however, be a two-edged  sword. Mary may cUe first in  which -case John may hot inherit  her one-half. Th-e^uestion of the  r__ative ages and7 states, of  health of the parties would have  to be considered.  7  It is not only, in the case of a  separation that this procedure  should be followed1. John may  wish to provide for Mary but  have doubts about her business  ability. Mary may remarry and  her second husband may persuade her into some unwise investment, and the proceeds of  John's estate be thus dissipated.  In such a case, Mary is the  author of her own misfortune  but John's children will aisj suffer. Under such circumstances.  John should draw a will leaving  Mary a life interest in the estate  and direct that the balance  which Twould include the proceeds Ifrom his one-half of the  tenancy in common or the entire real property depending on  who died first, be held in trust  for the children.

(Matt. 6-36)  There are two days in every  wieek  about  which   we  should  not worry. One of these days is  yesterday, with its mistaikes and  cares, its faults and blunders,  its' aches and pains'. Yesterday  has passed forever beyond our  control. All the money in the  world cannot bring back yesterday. We* cannot undo a singsfe act  we penfarmed; we cannot erase  a single word we said. Yesterday is. gone.  The other day we should not  worry about is tomorrow, with  its: possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and poor  performance. Tomorrow is also  beyond our immediate control.  This leaves only today. Any  one can fdgfat the battles' of just  one day. It is only when you and  I add the buoxiens of those two  aw!fu_i eternities, yesterday and  tomorrow, that we break down.  It is not the experience of today  that drives men mad. It is remorse or bitterness for something that happened yesterday,  and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.  Let us therefore live but one  dlay at a time.  Real estate operators are finding use of our Xerox-machine a  valuable asset in the copying of  map locations.  Have you heard of  Baha'U'llah?

Regional board supplies answers for pro-tent officials  (Continued from Page 1)  meeting a few days after the  meeting of the Regional Board.  But not all1 hope is* lost yet!  The pro-tem executive apparently is beginning to realize that  their credibility could only be  enhanced! if their statements  could be backed up by some  facts. So they decided to form  now a faet-imdihg comimittee.  Such a project is welcome, because a ratepayers' association  which only operates on hearsay  and prejudices, is not much good  to anybody.  The finance committee's answers to the various points are  set out in the following:  l.(a) "There are no Capital  Cost Allowances taken on fixed  assets of $48,008. Why?"  Capital cost allowances are a  deduction from taxable income  permitted to a taxpayer by the  minister of national revenue under Sec. 11 (1) (a) of the Income  Tax act and pertinent regulations.  The Regional board and Water authority are non-profit corporate public bodies, not subject  to the provisions of the Federal  Income Tax Act, .tout regulated  by provincial statutes.  If we have to understand the  question as to why no "replacement fund" for those assets has  been provided, we had to ask  ourselves, why not the same demand for the waterworks assets.  We must point out that the creation of replacement funds Js prohibited by government ojireo-  tives, because such replacement  funds would not only practically  double the taxes or rates raised  for the payment of the assets,  but would also negate the voter-  electors' riights to vote on money  by-laws. If those replacement  funds were accumulated, the  district, in our specific case,  would have in due course about  $1.5 million in hand, which could  be used by the board1 without  reference to the taxpayers.  l.(b) "Provincial advance assumed for fire equipment repayable with $1,947 annually. Why  is this $1,947 not recorded under  current liabilities, as it is repayable within the year?"  Firstly the sum of $1,947 is not  repayable within the year tfor  which the audit report is rendered, but within the following year.  Secondly, under municipal and  other public accounting no differentiation is made between  current and non-current assets  or liabilities.  Such differentiation has only  significance for private enterprises in the evaluation of liquidity and other important ratios  looked for by banks, shareholders or financial analysts to judge  worth and soundness of a corporation.  1971 repayment of the provincial balance is included in the  1971 budget and has no bearing  whatsoever on the balance sheet  for 1970 or the 1970 results, on  which the auditors report.  l.(c) "Just what are the Capital Assets referred to on the  General Revenue Balance Sheet?  We are somewhat puzzled by  the reference to a general revenue balance sheet. Such kind  of statement has not been provided by the district's auditors  and is not known in the accounting profession.  If the reference is made to  the balance sheet (exhibit I) off  the audit report, the capital assets of $48,008 are set out in detail and we cannot add any information, tout can only repeat  that the assets owned iby the taxpayers consist of land and a firehall under construction at. Roberts Creek, movable fire equipment located in the fireballs of  Roberts Creek and Gibsons and  other equipment mainly in the  offices of the district at Davis  Bay.  l.(d) "Bank loan pending Waterworks Debenture issue of $1,-  055,000. When are the debenture issues to be sold, at what  rate of discount and interest?"  The sale of the debentures is  in the hands of the Municipal Finance Authority (MFA), a similar institution to the School Finance Authority and the Hospital Finance Authority. These fin-  ANDY  CAPP  ance authorities were created by  acts of the legislature to ce__-  tralize and -co-ordinate the sale  of debentures on the open market to provide long-term financing for school boards, hospital  boards, regional districts- and  municipalities in the province  The MFA presently tries to  place debentures in the market.  As soon as the MFA has sold debentures, it will in turn purchase  the district's debentures with  the proceeds at a rate the MFA  has obtained in the market for  their own debentures.  To date the MFA has not sold  any debentures. Details- of the  provinoiai-ly sponsored procedures were widely discussed in  the daily papers, which also reported recently the withdrawal  of tenders by the MFA for the  sale of 15 million dollars, as interest and discount rates appeared too high to the MFA. For  future developments in the marketing of our debentures the finance comimittee can only suggest that interested parties follow closely the reports in claily  papers, radio and television stations, which carry such news  much earlier than we receive  official notification. Of course,  the board will advise the taxpayers, as soon as we receive official word of any move in that  direction. ,  Incidentally, the anticipated  debenture issue of the district  will be such an amount which  will net the district $1.5 miMon  after discount.  l.(e) "Why are connections  of $37,680 shown on the balance  sheet as a capital investment?  The 1971 budget shows income  of $4,500 for connection fees.  Why is not the $37,680 classed  as general revenue?"  The question- is one of elementary accounting methods and.  may only be significant in future  years, when certain formulas of  the Municipal Act may become  applicable in calculating limits  of borrowing powers. The questioned procedure is one of the  fundamental accounting, techniques, the proper application of  which has to be expressly certified by the auditors in their report. In the context of seeking  out the truth, the matter is completely immaterial and irrelevant.  To explain the accounting method more in detail: Connections  to the water system are considered installations of a lasting  or capital nature They are not  considered a repair or maintenance expense Therefore the  value or cost of the connections-  is included in the capital assets  of the water utility and shown  on the balance sheet under Capital Funds: -nanstmission and distribution system.  Conversely the fees collected  from the water users to cover  the installation costs could not  be shown as general revenue,  but halve to be shown amongst  the funds employed to create the  assets, i.e. amongst the capital  funds liabilities. As the funds  used to pay for the connections  were not taken- from funds provided by toank loans or sales of  debentures, they had to be shown  as an extra item on the balance  sheet. Proper accounting procedures demand full disclosure of  the origin or source of employed  funds.  The same applies for connections to be installed during 1971.  The estaiated total) of $4,500 is  included in the 1971 capital pro-  igvam and not in the revenue and  expenditure Ibudget.  2.(a) "Bylaw 55 shows over  40% increase in salaries; from  $43,000 to $68,000; all in the  range that is not consistent with  the general earnings level of the  area."  The finance committee hatsi.no  information, nor has the pro-tem  executive stated, what the 'gen-  'etriail earnings level of the area'  is supposed to be. If they mean  the average income of all residents in the Sunshine Coast, it  could not toe a proper basis for  salaries paid by the district to  its employees, as the average  would not only include income  of the salary and wage earners,  tout also income of the people on  retirement income, old age pension and welfare recipients. '  Criteria for setting regional office salaries are comparative  figures available, from other ire-  igionali districts and municipalities in the province and pay  scales of industry, commerce  and other public bodies within  the district.  The "main reason for the apparent increase iri regional salaries can be found in the fact  that during 1970 most of the salaries under the Water Services  budget were capitalized, being  part of the costs incurred in the  construction of the works. A considerably smaller portion of  these salaries in 1971 will toe capitalized, as most of the construction work has been completed during the previous fiscal  year. Comparison of a budget  with a financial1 statement of a  previous year cannot always provide a full explanation, as both  are drawn up for slightly different purposes.  Salary increases over 1970  were set at approximately 1Yi%  with seniority increments added  according to municipal usage  and practice throughout the province: Our increases of 7%%  were considerably lower than the  increases gained in industry and  commerce in the same period on  the Sunshine Coast and in other  regional districts and municipalities of comparable size and  functions in B.C. In actual fact  the salaries paid toy our distract  are lower than those paid in the  public and private sector and  have been so over a number of  years. Whether this state of affairs can (be maintained in fairness to our employees appears  very questionable.  2.(b) Detail apportionment of  funds provided by Acquisition."  No funds were provided by acquisition. We do not understand  the question.  3.(a> "Justify the need for  your present staff."  The present staff is needed to  fuli_ill  adequately the functions  of the district as necessary according   to   letters-patent   and  other, pertinent requirements for  district and hospital district administration. In our carefully  considered opinion it is also the  barest minimum of staff required to give proper service to the  public. Although it might not be  a fully valid measuring stick,  the district presently 'employs  0.7 employees per 1,000, population. The total cost of this service (not only salaries) amounts  to $1.53 per year per $1,000 assessed property values. In both  respects this represents one of  the lowest ratios' in the province  and compares favorably with  other municipalities and districts  It is doubtful whether such favorable ratios can be maintained  for ever dn the face of the continually growing complexity of  present day life and the resulting growing complexity of municipal administration.  It is very easy, but rather futile and unrealistic, to harp back  nostalgically of how simple everything was 20 years or so ago,  when there were only a-few people and everybody could do  more or less as he pleased without affecting life and convenience of his fellow mam. Looking at our environment close toy  and also slightly beyond our  parochial borders, we are forced to meet up with.a< society of  steadlily growing sophistication.  Even if we tried very hard, we  cannot put the clock back on the  Sunshine Coast or anywhere  else. We also firmly (believe that  even in the Sunshine Coast there  are now very few people  amongst our citizens who would  really prefer to. allow their neigh  bors unregulated and unrestricted freedom, even at their own  inconvenience and expense.  4. (a) "Water supply and distribution are far removed from  the published request for Assent  Bylaw No. 21 (1968) Why and  who is responsible?"  For a very large number of  households, which are on a normal residential parcel of one  acre or less the sum total off  water charges does not vary too  much from the figures originally  published in connection with the  plebiscite. The charges for the  Sechelt and Selma Park areas  had to be increased, however, to  cover the increased costs.  The reason�� for the increases  were previously set out in detail  in various board meetings and  press releases. Nothing new can  be added in this report, tout we  shall give once more a summary  of the causes which led to higher  rates in the areas- formerly served by the Seohelt Water Works  Ltd.  a. The actual acquisition  costs of the assets of Sechelt Water Works Ltd. were more thain  dOuible of the estimates provided to the board toy their consultants. These estimates were fully supported toy figures -contained' in the so-called 'Motherwell'  report submitted some time earlier to the council! of the village  of Sechelt. Based on the information contained in these two independent reports the board decided to go to arbitration, after  agreement with the owners could  not be reached.  The final price was set by a  judicial arbitration court, consisting of three judges. The  boaird could have appealed  against the decision to the Supreme Court, but because of the  sulbstanitial legal costs inivolved'  in ^ such ai-' appeal, even a considerable reduction' of the compen-'  sation award would have most  probably still further increased  the ultimate" total cost.  ib. The works themselves  were in a very poor state of upkeep with many of the installations in need oif immediate replacement. As it turned out, the  estimates of economic life expectancy for these parts were  more properly evaluated by our  consultants than the evaluation  accepted- by the judges for their  setting the compensation to foe  paid to Sechelt Water Works  Ltd.   .  ��� ic. . The cost of re-construction  of the works taken over and oif  the new works was (based on  1967-68 price levels, when the  engineering report was made to  the board to serve as a basis  for the plebiscite. As construction only started late 1969 with  the main construction taking  place in 1970, we were exposed  to the full impact of steeply rising labor, and material costs,  which alffected: the whole economy of B.C., Canada and the  Western world. The hoard admits that it did not succeed in  ordering a halt to inflation on  the borders of the Sunshine  Coast.  d. Before actual construction  started and even1 When it was in  progress, several changes in  overall plans' were forced on the  d-strict, which not only delayed  the start of revenue-flow, but  also reduced rather drastically  the number of potential users in  the more densely populated  areas. The situation was further  aggravated by a numlber of  strikes in the construction and  cement industries, which delayed the completion of installations  essential for the start-up oif opera tions with, consequent adverse effect on costs and re-  (venue.  e. Interest rates, which the  consultant's report stipulated for  rate purposes at 7%.had increased during 1970 to 8Yi% and se  adding up to $22,500. .per. annum  to the overall capitalization cost.  As explained.at numerous occasions in the past the board is  not yet in a position to finalize  the ultimate water rates, until  we know exactly what rate of  discount and interest the MFA  obtains, when they sell their debentures to pick up ours. The  board shares with the water users the fervent hope that _.the  cost of the debenture issue will  not toe too excessive. We can  only console ourselves that we  are in the same boat with other  districts and municipalities. We  can hardly expect any preferenh  iai. treatment from the MFA,  only because we live in the Sun--  shine Coast.  Allocation of personal blame  for all circumstances leading to  the cost increases and responsibility for providing a water service for the whole area, seems  to toe somewhat outside the ���  sciope oif this report. We confidently leave it to all water users  to pass fair judgment. It has  been said that under the circumstances the board should not  have provided a water service to  all. Such wise 20:20 hindsight  could perhaps sound convincing  to a few of the people who happened to have some communal  water service, although they  claimed at the time most vigorously and at many occasions  that the service was very inadequate. This, of course, might  have been forgotten conveniently by now. We are convinced  that such narrow views are not -  held by a majority of the people. They are certainly not shared by those 700 or 800 new participants, representing about  3,000 adults and] children, who  now for the Ifirst time have a  regular service, which we expect will toe fully satisfactory at  all times, once construction is  completed in the near future and  the rather longstretched system  d-U-Lly balanced  Geneitally as* regards the water rates may we stress that our  ���rates are very comparable with  rates paid in other places or  newer installations', tout aire naturally higher than for older sysv  tems, which have not yet reached1 the end of their economic life.  System�� which have to toe re  newed in the near future will  most probably -require much  higher urates to remain sef-liquidL  a-ting.  We must also mention! that  when the rate structure was reviewed last year the district anticipated to have an industrial  user on their consumer rolli, whio  would have helped not only in  the future development of the  supply system, tout also toy paying water rates materially contributed to the financial strength  of the water authority. The boaird  duty bound and without hesita-  iion accepted the wishes of the  taxpayers mainly of the Sechelt  and Selma Park area and refused approval for the industrial  operations. Let us fialoe up to the  ifacts of life: We cannot have it  both ways. So further development iof the supply system,  which will be necessary in the  not too distant future, has to be  paid for by the domestic water  consumers without the help,of  a large industrial user. It, is essential that all water users keep  this in mind when they consider  present or future water rates.  4.(b) "Inequities will have to  be reconciled, where charges  are being made to lands not being capable of being served with  water, where a % inch line  serves a single family dwelling,  the acreage attached to this single dwelling cannot be taxed for:  water."  The finance committee cannot  see any inequity in the case as  described. As we understand it  there is a single family dwelling on a parcel of land. This fam*  i-ly dwelling is connected with  the system by a % inch connection, as provided by the water  rates toyUaw. Apparently the  dwelling can be provided with  water and all stipulations of the  bylaw are fully met. Once the.  land is subdivided and additional houses erected, each dwelling  which can toe serviced, will toe  provided with its separate %  inch connection and: will1 attract  its separate water toiling.  There were a number oif pe-<-  cu-iar cases brought to the attention of the board, in which  the owners were advised of  means and ways to secure a  more favorable rate by either  subdividing, consolidation, correction of land registry records,  etc., which aipparenty brought  satisfactory solutions to the  problems.  Generally any law or bylaw,  which has to cover a great di">  versity of conditions and variety  of circumstances, may cause in  one or the other case a certain  amount of hardship. Every  judge, who had to deal with such  ���cases in his court, will conifiim  that laws pr bylaws cannot be  changed or bent to suit every individual tax payer's peculiar circumstance, as long as the bylaw  covers adequately and equitably  the overwhelming majority of  conditions. No evidence has been  provided toy the pro-tem executive of any cases of discrimination against Water users.  If the protem chairman hats'  the one case iri mind, where a  part of the land, on which the  dwelling is situate, is afooive the  200 feet elevation, we have thoroughly discussed the matter  with the owner and advised him  how he can change things1 to obtain a more favorable water  rate. However, as much as we  sympathize with him about his  present -circumstances, we are  sure he realizes fully that he  himself has to make the neces*-  sary changes1, and that he cannot demand1 from the board to  apply the bylaw to everybody  else, but not to him.  4.(c) Why does the Board not  ask for bids on any construction  by the Water Works?  All. construction projects not  being carried out toy the water  wiorks' own laibor orce is put ouf "  to tender. Occasional contract  work iby the hour or djay, such  as baickhoe work, is being done  on fixed and ���pre-arranged- rates  and allocated to such local contractors as have the most suitable equipment for the job in  hand.  4.(d) For how long will the  Water Works keep renting barricades, signal flashes, etc.?  (Continued on Page 3A) Board supplies answers  (Continued from Page 2A)  Ba*___cades,    flashlights    and  other safety equipment is rented  to comply with safety regulations during construction periods  at locations a�� required. Equipment is rented rather than purchased, as rented equipment is  maintained toy the owners at no  cost to the district including replacement of any broken or destroyed items. It is the opinion  of the people in charge of con1-  structioh that such is the most:  economical way, and the finance  dommitee, respohsdible for the  proper use of i-unds, fully agrees;  with this view. ';'"-'  4.(e) ��� Why are there ^inadequate numbers of fire hydrants?  The. pro-tem chairman) did not  give any reasons why he thinks  the numlber of hydrants is inadequate. .       ���'������'.  '''���;': ;^ydra^ats--were placed on the  li-ies in accordance with imder^  writers' recc>manendataohs arid  on the advice of our .consulting  engineers:7.

Would trie pro-tem executive  pleas�� keep in mind that the installed cost of a hydrant is presently about $500 and has to be  paid for by the water users. It  is rather diifficult to reconctLle  the pro-teem' executive's complaints about the water rates on  the one hand and the request  for additional expensive installations on the other, without at  'least supporiting their opinions  ���and demands toy some specifics  wfteaie the shortages are. "'_  7 5. (a) Inequities in garbage  collection taxes will have to be  resolved. Why should vacant  lands be charged for garbage  collection, further the numbers  of garbage cans allowed must be  reconciled with the source.  Whether   the   garbage   taxes  are inequitable is a: purely per-  Lsonal opinion. The thought be-.  JhaSad mialring vatcant lots help in  ".. d��frayirig the cost oif collection  from occupied lots is simply that  compulsory   garbage   colliec'tion  gives the vacant lots prbtection  from    indiscriminate    use    as  dumps.   If  vacant  lots do  not  make a small contribution1 for  this protection the householders  serviced by the. collection will  have to pay more.  The demand that the number  of garbage cams have to be reconciled to a source is beyond  our   comprehension1   as   to   its  meaning.  6. Statements1 and questions  contained under thisr heading  aire party rhetorical, partly opinions based on wirong or inadie-  quate iriflotnmation, hearsay with-  ouit any investigation and partly  completely untrue without any  . basis in facts.  The finance committee hesitates to judge whether the elected directors' are particularly  toUessed or unblessed with wisdom-, whether they replace their  lack of wisdom with aimogance  and -dictatorial attitudes. In re-  v spect of-our employees ;we have  no. hienaiichy or do we need one.  We have a body of devoted1 and  glood empSioyeesr who, we are  ifully convinced, make every ef-  ioast to do their job and give service to our taxpayers. We do  not mind in the least to toe at-  tkeked and abused personally,  as we  can,_ taike   care of  our-"  -selves. But we take great exception if people without even  the-slightest effort to find out  any facts,grossly abuse the servants of "the distiict, who cannot  defend hemselves.  We are iallso convinced that ail  directors, participating in rriany  committees and working hard  in doing their homework, have  always and are still, devoting  their tiime and efforts in the service M th��flr fellow citizens, even'  if such' is neither realized, appreciated nor recognized toy a  few people who appoint themselves to be the so-called sppkes-  men of the ratepayers.  . In refuting some of the worst  slogans and vatuperat-ons' contained in the last few para-  ���graiphs the finance committee  can only repeat:   .  a. Financial statements are  putolished regulariy since the inception Of the district fidly com*  plying with. the prevailing statutes of the province. Books and  records are open to the public  for inspection as prescribed by  '. law. '���������������.-,'  to. Neither the board as a  whole nor any individual' director at any time stated-, or had  reaison to state, that the district  is in a scarry financial mess.  iSuch claim by the pno-tem ex-  ecutiye or anybody else is a  pure iriYenlion.'On the conitrary,  by careful -budgeting arid cir  cuahisipect spending the district  so far has ended every fiscal  year with a'smafll overfall surplus.  c. The present annual cost for  (Regional sertvices1 on $5,000 assessment is monthly about .63c.  If a taxpayer lives in an area  seirviced by garbage collection  his additional cost for this service is another 55c, or a total  icost per month of $1.18.

In conclusion, because of the  very -Amited membership of the  ; Sunshine' Coast Regional Ratepayers' Association in relation  to the number of voter-electors  in the electoral areas of the district it is questionable whether  a pro-tem executive of the as-  , sociation or the association itself  can ibe accepted presently as a  legitimate spokesman for the  .ratepayers in- all the electoral  areas. ��� -  Despite this the finance committee recommends that this report be received by the board  and accepted' as - our answer to  the questions by the prortemi executive of the Sunshine Coast Re  gional Ratepayers' Association.  It cannot be too greatly emphasized that the directors of the  (boaird Wave been elected by the  ratepayers of the electoral areas  to represent them and during  -their term of office to govern the  district to the best of their abilities. Under no ciixjun-stances  can this mandateTbe -abirogated  to, or shared with other elements  of the distriict,. who lack both  authority and respon^bd_ity.  We are sure that the directors  will agree when we most strongly state that we fully trust and  accept,the sound and fair judgment of the voter-electors, whom  we endeavor to serve to the best  . of our abilities. The same voter-  electors throughout the district  may be less than flattered for  being lectured by the pro-tem  exeouit_ve Of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Ratepayers' Association that they are not capable to  elect suitable representajives  without the advice and guidance  prof erred in such humble modesty by the self appointed pro-tem  chairman. .

Coast News, Sept. 1, 1971.  ^ 3A  Land mixing  in zoned areas  watched closely  ��� Sunshine Coast Regional District hoard members are watching with interest a procedure  that over-rides- zoning schemes  by allowing a mixing of land use  which a zoning bylaw does not  permit, such as a combination  ��� of .a motel and -retail stores.  Lady smith will pioneer a new  procedure for land development  making use of an amendment to  the Municipal Act .which has  root been used before.  This,,, procedure was recommended v in a letter from: the  Advisory P-anning Commission  which was read at a recent'meet  ing of the-board.- It will be used  in connection with the request  from George Randall Ltd., for  rezoning -of the property owned  -hy Sta-tler Developments at the  bottom of Davis Road.       7  The Randall request was that  the lots in this new sub-division  which border the highway and  Davis Road be rezoned commercial in order that Statler--Developments Ltd. could construct a  garden type" wiotel and' five  small retail stores.  The Advisory Plannng Commission, when asked for a recommendation, found, that zones  in the exasitmig zoning bylaw  were not applicable to such- a  development , but that a new  procedure which permitted -an  area to designated as "development area" appeared to fit the  situation, ideally.   - -  Under this procedure, Mr.  Randall can apply for a development contract and he and the  town, can work but details1 acceptable to both parties which  would permit him to go ahead  with the development and also.  would provide insurance for the  town that the development  would ibe carried out according  to contract.  ,.,; A bylaw providing for the development area> was_ given- three  rea&ingsf Monday evening. When  this bylaw is passed the council  can accept an application (from  Mr. Randall for a contract. The  contract, when it is completed,  must be presented to the public  at a public hearing before the  town can sign it.

How it all came  albout is told by Carol Brakstad,  Gibsons 'Calamity Jane.' ���  Out in the Bay, just in front  of the Brakstad home at the .foot  of Prowse Road, it is not unusual to see flotillas of stray ducks  cruising about in those protected waters, cop-outs, no doubt  -rom. migrating flocks, and now  -many of them, temporarilly  grounded just off shore, swim in  and out of Gibsons whairf, Smit-  ty's. Marina.and the Esso dock.  Here you will find mailards, pintails, mudhens and others, quite  a conglomerate aggregation of  feathered floaters.  iGoing on three years ago a  pair of these coastal mavericks  met and mated on these shores  and aided, it is said;by Ernie  Burnett, the wood cariver, who  pKaced an upturned butter box  just under the decking of one of  SJrriitty's floats, as a (make-do  nesting facility. Here in due time  these strangers hatched out 11  downy chicks.  As the brood grew older, the  itinerant parents took off, leaving the young ones to fend for  themselves. All this was noted  by Smutty, although he won't admit it, Hal Hammond, Inez, wife  of the Esso operator, and Carol,  the Red Cross chairman in these  parts.  So it was with- this abandoned  feathered brood, One might regard this incident in the form of  a very minor catastrophe, hardly worth recording. Nevertheless, out there in the^Ba^, the  ducklings heeded a hail. So  Carol, along with others, went  down to the shore with bits of  food. 7" '  At first, the bedraggled ducklings stood ofif, but gradually  they began to look, for their  benelfactor, even to foHowing her  right up to the house and if  Carol should happen to be late  with the grub, the feathered  mooehers would be right at the  back door, loudly demanding  their nocturnal handout. 7  So far, there haiveffbeeh; several tragedies in the original  little bandi of 11 mallards, and  on each occasion, orte or more  o_ the ducks fell victim. The  first 'happened on shore when  several were trapped and harried to death by village curs.  The third duck was strangled to  death by two legged louts.  On both occasions the little  brood's wild duick cries in the  niight brought the Brakstads to  the scene on the run as the;ducks  sought refuge in the back yard  fronting on the Bay.  Carol confronted the midnight  marauders with a tongue lashing along with.a well planted  two by four on th-eir backsides,  because of which she is feared  and respected. This, the ducks  ���sensed, especially the five remaining mendicants of the Brak-  stad's special brood.  FJUN TIME ARCADE  Now Open!

In electric blankets the heat  is supplied from an insulated  element that is sandwiched between two layers of the (blanket.  Check to see that there is Canadian Standards Association  (CSA) or Underwriters Laboratory approval. This assures that  the blanket has been properly  wired for maximum safety. Near  ly all models ,of electric blankets are equipped with either  safety thermostats or special  wiring to cut off the current if  the blanket becomes overheated,  as it may become when doubled  over on itself or tucked under  during sleep. "77 ��� jx.+i  Both blanket and control  should !be covered by a guarantee that offers replacement or  repair within a stated1 period of  time ��� read the label carefully  for this information. Consumers'  Association df Canada suggests  that these are some of the con-  venie.nlc(e features you should  look for when buying an electric  blanket: '  ���A separate on-and-off switch  so that you don't need to disturb.  the setting;  ���Illuminated setting for ease  of re-adjusting the control in the  dark.  ���Dual control (one for each  side of the fbed is desirable for,  double bed blankets). There will  still Ibe a certain amount of heat  radiation but it does give more  flexibility and individual choice  in temperature control.   Snap-fit contour corners permit closer 'fit and neater appearance. They also help to keep the  blanket in place, since no part  of a blanket where the element  runs should ibe tucked under the  mattress because of danger of  overheating.        7  Most electric blankets1 are  made of synthetic fibres, either  atone or in blends, and hs-ve the  ;same; properties (as t_iey <fo ��.;  conventional blankets. One very  _!m|portant thing to remember.  Do not dryclean electric blankets. Drycleaning is fine for most  blankets Ibut never for electric  blankets because the insulation  around the heating element becomes damaged.

Dry spell creates water problems  The Regional1 board water system has been beset with a number of serious problems,,. Director liorne Wo_verton, chairman  of the board's water committee  wrote in his report to the board  at the August 26 meeting.  Waer consumption in hot dry  weaifiber was much- higher than  expected and users at higher altitudes and at the ends of lines  have been out of water many  times.  A number of breaks in the old  wood stave lines on the Indian  Reserve, and in Sechelt, have  taxed the crews and necessitated lowering the water pressure.  Our crews should be commended for their efforts in the  face of the many problems. Immediate solutions to the problems aire difficult ��nd are, I believe, limited to severe restrictions on sprinMng and a reduction of line pressure in the Sechelt area. Thus it appears that  this year we must take our  lumps. Unfortunately a return  of cooler wet weather is the  most likely solution, he wrote.  However solutions to prevent  a repetition next year are several and the board1 must consider the alternatives. He suggests  that the water committee consider the following, most of  which have been discussed before.  West Sechelt: He believes a  reservoir above West Sechelt  will give the greatest benefit  to that area. This will provide a  water supply close at hand at  times of high demand.  Increased supply lines throuigj-t  Sechelt should be considered also. The Improvement District  Trustees leel this is necessary.  He suggests the reservoir would  give greater benefits but the engineers should check both points  As present water requirements  can be provided1 if the water  pressure within Sechelt village  is maintained. However, this has  given too many problems in the  older parts of the system, he  added.  In Sechelt and Selma Park  area it may be necessary to  change more wood stave lines.

Martin Dayton,  board engineer, suggests a minimum of 200,000 gallons whidh  can feed the Gower Point airea  and back to Roberts Creek in  times of real demand and yet be  filled1 from Chapman Creek at  night and early morning.  Consideration of putting the  Chaster Road) welfli into service  will likely be governed by the  requirements of the village of  Gibsons. However, it is possible it should! be done.  In Langdale, completion of the  present project of developing the  well, instalation of the 50,000  gallon  tank and  the intercon  nections with existing lines will  solve the problems in Dangdale  Com-jp_etion sometime in September is now expected.

In his report to the board Gordon Dixon, works siiperinten-  ctent, said there .were ten new  water connections during the  month and1 11 new customers.  He added that due to high demand for water dining the ex-  fcremely hot weather, several  leaks occurred in the older wood  mains in Selima Park and Sechelt. Two leaks also occurred  on the old steel main which  serves the Indian* Reserve.  The worst leaks occtnrecl! in  Coast News. _fept.Vl, 1971.  the supply line wthichj serves  Sechelt and West SeoheM. The  main which broke.-.wall be abandoned this fall alter altesnnaite  supply lines have Dbeeai com-  structed.  It appears that several blocks  of the oldest wood mains1 in Sechelt will have to be replaced  before next summer's high demand.  A minimum would be to replace the mains along Whamf  Road from Dolphin Street to  the wharf and a tnew line ifrom  Wharf Road to ShonrecM^e Avenue. Cost would be, approximate^  ly $20,000.  A deposit was received from*  a development to cover the cost  of construction of 360 feet of 6  inch and1 300 feet of 4 inch lines.  In DL. 1316 (Lower Roadi) the  maims will serve 24 new lots.  Oonstra-ct-on will he done during  September.  240 feet of 6 inch ductile was  constructed for the Department  of Indian Affairs to conaietet to  their new extension along East  PkMipoise Bay Road.  Work was1 completed on a subdivision in D.L. 2631. Work _n>-  oDuded 850 feet 6 inlch and 200  feet 4 inch mains. Severn new  lots were served.  It is apparent from the number vof connections made each  mtonith that the demamd for services far exceeds; that anticipated, Secretary Charles Gooding  reported.  Acquisition of the Langdale  pumpsite is in hand and he requested! the board to consider a  resolution authorizing a coven  ant to be applied to the lot for  the pumpsite and thus enable th��  subdivision to be approved. Deed  forms for easements have been  drawn up and printed and the  solicitor will commence processing them, early in S^eahiber.  PENUISp  0RNAMJENTAL IRON  IRON RAILINGS  FIREGRATES  FORGE WORK  Phone 886-7029 or 886-7056  Perhaps,  you  Do you know  what it could cost you  Lefs be optimistic and assume  you don't have an accident. Or hit  any parked cars. Or speed. Let's assume you stay at the party longer  than you planned and had three or  f ourdrinks���enoughtodrinkto make  you legally impaired. All in good  fellowship. All without malice. And  for some reason, you are stopped.  Here's what to expect:  1 Breathalizer ^e����  tremely adept at spotting impaired  drivers. There are dozens of telltale  clues, if you are suspected, you will  be asked to submit to a breathalizer  test. This is mandatory and refusal  can result in serious charges. If you  have consumed enough to give you  a :08 reading, you can -be charged  with impaired driving.  2|jij| Very likely, you will be  . ., yOIl jailed overnight. For the  average citizen, this is a terrifying  experience, impaired driving comes  under the Criminal: Code, and that  Is just how you will be treated. You  will be fingerprinted, asked for alias',  relieved of your belt, tie, shoelaces,  and personal possessions, allowed  one phone call, and be placed in a  cell; In the morning, your breakfast  will be slid under the bars of the cell  door. You will find the night harrowing and have plenty of time to reflect.  In the meantime, your wife and  children will be worried, distressed  and slightly mortified. ,  <_3 Fi_lP<5 The arresting officer's  ^__P i illuo rep6rt,corroborated  by your breathalizer reading, will  normally result in a conviction. The  number of convictions is increasing  every year.Over 12,000 are expected in British Columbia alone during 1971. If the Judge lets you off  with a $250 fine for the first offence, you can consider yourself  lucky. For having accumulated ten  penalty points, the Superintendent  of Motor Vehicles will assess you  a charge of $25.00 which will be  used to pay for public information  messages like the oneyou are now  reading. Add to this the $50 to several hundred dollars you'll spend on a  lawyer and you've dropped quite a  bundle.  Suspension *�� ��*fr  had so much as a parking ticket in  thirtyyearsof driving, you can expect  to have your right fo drive reviewed by the Superintendent of Motor-  Vehicles.On his judgement and your  driving record, your suspension may  be one month, three months, six  months, or even indefinitely.  5 Insurance  The costs don't  stop at fines  and lawyers. When your insurance  company hears all about it, your  insurance premium will be sur-  charged.That means your insurance  rates will soar until you can prove  yourself a good risk again. That  could take years if you have no more  problems. And here's another point  to ponder. Hadypu injured or killed  someone while impaired, your  liability coverage was void anyhow.  Ypiiir insurance company will pay  the claim, but they may demand repayment from you.  Pllhlinif 1/  Criminal courts  I UUIIMiy   swarm with court  reporters. In some smaller communities, your conviction will make  frbnt page news. They will' list the  details of your arrest, trial, conviction, breathalizer reading, fine and  suspension. They will print all this,  along with your name and address,  for all your friends and business associates to read. It is the coup de  graceyoucan expect aboutone week  after the trial.  These are the hard cold facts of  how a jovial evening can turn into a  nightmare/The police haveieen too  many dead children to have" much  patience.The courts have heard too  many tragedies to give you much  mercy. And that's the way it is.  Think about it next time you decide to save a few dollars on a cab.  Government of British Columbia  Motor-Vehicle Branch  Hon. Leslie R.
