Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 37, September 29, 1971.  10c per copy  ret  Garbage application turned down  At Tuesday night'�� Gibsons  council meeting Mayor Wally  Petersoi. announced' he was going to run for mayor again in  the December municipal elections. He also hoped- he would  have the same council next year  as he has this year.  He announced that council unanimously decided to turn down  the Sunshine Coast Disposal Service request for a business- licence to pick up garbage in Gibsons village. :': ���������;���. .'������  At the sarnie time he announced council would, take steps at  the first of the year to institute  compulsory garbage pickup. He  added that Bob Kelly has given  the village good service and will  get first cfence at the job. He  "hoped that the village would  continue to do business with Mr.  Kelly.  Aid. Ken Goddard moved' thai  .steps to institute a compulsory  garbage//pickup he started. This  was seconded' by Aid. Ken Crosby. The msiyor thought the issiue  should be^ left open for a financial study of the project. He preferred not to say council "would  take steps." Aid. Croaby thought  "it would' toe quite right to take  steps. So the mayor decided that  it would go ahead if the study  proved' feasible.  Witnesses to the debate included Ray Chamberlin and Tom  Gory of the Sunshine Coast Disposal Service. After the meeting they informed the Coast  News the matter of the application for a business licence to  cover Gibsons /village was in the  hands of their legal counsel and  they would await further developments.  Meetings decide zone changes  Two public meetings to discuss  changes in Regional zoning bylaws, one in Halfmoon Bay area  and the other in Gibsons rural,  were held during the past two  weeks.. The meetings drew 60  persons at Welcome Beach Hall,  Halfmoon Bay area and not  more than half-a-dozen at the  Gibsons rural meeting in Gibsons Elementary school.    -  At Hallfimoon Bay a vote to get  the feeling-of the meeting produced the following results:  Eureka: Majority in favor of  becoming  Residential  II;   Sea-  crest: Majority in favor of becoming Residential II; Welcome  Beach waterfront: In favor of  staying Residential I; Redrooffs  and Welcome Beach -back lots:  iri favor of becoming Residential  n.

This question was asked of  Ber^ixiTLittlejohn,; club president while addressing Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce on the operations of the  club.  The answer was simple. Numerous names were suggested  and these were whittled to two,  the Sunshine Coast Ski Club and  Tetrahedron Ski Club. Put to a  vote, Tetra won by two.  He explained that Tetrahedron  is the name of a mountain (at  the headwaters of the Rainy River) Twihere the peak rises to  5,��99 feet. Mr.Littlejohn suggested that someday they might  be skiinig at the peak they can  see.' .' ........... -...

"tetrahedron    is    a   polyhedron  bounded by four triangles.)  Mr. Littlejohn told how two  years ago a meeting off 30 people decided some access was  needed to get to a ski slope.  Mike Jackson put them on to an  excellent spot with good snow  on Elphinstone Mountain. A later visit revealed good slopes so  it was decided to form a club.  A $1,500 snowmobile was obtained and for the first year  Mike Jackson had the road open  to the 10 mile mark to about the  snow line. The club was given a  small shack which was towed to  the 3,500 foot level and put into  use.  During the second winter a ski  tow was obtained from North  Vancouver and installed during  the laite summer and fall. There  was plenty of snow, so much so  there was good going in February. It was found necessary to  move to the old B & K' road  which was not in good shape.  Troubles grew with the snowmobile.  Hon. Isabel Dawson was approached to see what improvement could be obtained on the  B & K road and some work was  done; The parks branch ski expert visited the area which the  club* had selected and he decided  the area was not satisfactory for  a park but" he could set aside a  92 acre area which would be  suitable for skiers.  The club now has seven acres  under its control with all possibilities available in that acreage  for a good ski unit. The clulb anticipates there will,be some help  from government oifiicials but  not too much as it is not government policy to become involved  in such ventures.'  The club is not flushed with  funds, he said, but a general  meeting will be held on Oct. 14  in the old municipal hall in Gibsons, now ithe Athletic Association HQ. So far, Mr. Littlejohn  said, the support has been good.  Chairman Larry Labonte of  the C of C in thanking Mr. Lit-  tlejohn for his appearance said  he hoped that the chamber  would Ibe able to help the club  one way or another.  coming Residential I which  would place heavier restrictions  on building than would occur on  Residential II which allows  greater leeway in land and  buildings.  Gibsons Rural meeting with  Director Frank West and Mr.  Cuylits present discussed Chaster, Pratt and Rosamund road  areas. The change sought would  permit agricultural activities on  parcels of one acre or more  which lie within the RH zone,  and would rezone the area at  Chaster, Rosamund and Pratt  Roads (D.L. 909 and 683) from  RI to RII.

Aid. Ger-  ~ ry Dixon said there were three  ��� outlets in the line for hydrants.  Council adhered to its policy  of   supplying hydrants   through  ; budget expenditures each year.  ; Two are to be installed this, year  ��� one in Cedars Inn vicinity and  I the other on Shaw Road. Council decided that if the ratepayers  " concerned were ready to finance  such installation this year they  could be installed.  A business licence was issued  for John Harvey  to take   over  the  present  Jay-Bee  Furniture  store for his flower shop,  plus  ���:' furniture and jewelry.  Mayor Peterson also announc-  ; ed that expansion of the boundaries  of the village  to  Pratt  7 Road would be considered before the end of the year and he  x wanted it placed on the agenda  f of council for consideration.

"~~-  The school board meeting  Thursday night of last week took  the form of a discussion with  the board, Mr. Walsh, teachers  and the public present.  Mr. Walsh said there was no  small way of handling such afflicted children. It war. necessary to have trained staff and  proper facilities and this can  only occur in institutional centres.  He argued that the old system of striving to make afflicted children talk was wrong.  They should be allowed to communicate in the best way they  could and understood hand signals would be far better than  hesitant speech.  Sophisticated   equipment   was  helping in the voice field, allowing photographic methods to reveal   missed  sounds   in   words.

Youngsters are  "taught' the "use of'}typewmters  and also have tape recorders.  He was of the opinion there is  no correlation between, intelligence and lip reading. It usually was a problem of frustrations  and if the child could hot signify by speech it should be allowed to signify as best it can.  He maintained that nowhere  in the world was progress in the  fields of the deaf and blind making the advances that were occurring at Jericho Hill.  He was quite definite over the  subject of labelling youngsters,  setting up a situation which they  could not tear down and with the  laibel staying with them for the  rest of their lives.  The best thing that could be  done for such afflicted children  is to make application for the  use of the provincial government diagnostic service which  is a three-day affair and an institution. Such a service does  not involve any cost to a school  board. Use of the service enables a clearer definition of the  ailment that has to be corrected.  He also stressed the formation of local sponsor units which  could receive a small government grant to help out in the  pre-school deaf field. He said he  would like to see such local  groups organized.

Drama program discussed  Drama is alive and living in  Gibsons! Driftwood Players intend it shall stay that way. At  their meeting last week, they  mapped but a year's program  that should please all members  of the community.  Last Thursday night, Mr. Lee  Livingstone of the CBC met with  the Driftwood Players. Mr. Livingston who is in Gibsons for  the filming of the TV series The  Beachcombers, said that where  possible he will be using local  people in the production.  When asked if previous experience was essential, Mr. Livingstone replied, "No, people have  to start somewhere?' He expressed the view that it is in this  way that unknown talent is often discovered. "We did the  same in the Manipulators series" he said, "and with one or  two exceptions, it worked out  very well."  Full membership in the Driftwood Players is* $5 for the year.  This year for the first time, the  Players are offering associate  membership to interested people, for a fee of $3 for the year.  Both types of membership will  entitle the holder to free admission to all productions. For further information on membership,  phone 886-2534. 2       Coast News, Sept. 29, 1971.

Tax rates and assessments are usually something the average  reader bypasses because the appearance of a mass of figures eon-  fuses right at the start. However Mt. Frank West, chairmran of the  Regional Board finance committee has. explored the field of taxation covering Gilbsons, Sechelt and six Regional boards including  the Sunshine Coast Regional Board.  He has done this to refute allegations which have been spreads  that the Regional Board is pricing the retired person out of the  district. He shows that the Sunshine Coast Regional Board's taxation is 12 mills compared to 20 for Gibsons and 17 for Sedhelt. He  also computes the assessments of six Regional Boards revealing  that the Sunshine Coast board rates fifth in assessment hut has  the lowest cost of government.  He adds in his comment that should anybody plan to leave the  Sunshine Coast to escape high taxation Ihe would be in a serious  predicament becaiuse he could not find any place in British Columbia where taxes would be lower. He adds "we doubt whether any  tax haven such as the Sunshine Coast exists anywhere in Canada  or even in North America."  His statement is open to criticism by those who think they  know better. To those who have ideas that Mr. West is winong, the  Coast News columns are as wide open as they have been to the  Regional Board or any other institution in the area. Fair critiicism  is welcome.  We advise the reading of his statement. It might be tough to  analyze but it will be worth the effort.  A Scott Centennial  Among the 1971 Centennials falls the birth of Sir Walter Scant,  a great novelist, born in August, 1771. While there is a 200 year  gap between his birth arid today^ fids^iniluence on the' Scottish "way  of life has been considerable.  He wrote mostly from Scottish hisltory and legend and has had  a greater grip on Scottish nationality than have most other authors  on their own nationalism. His composition of the Waverly novels,  on which many of today's fading generation thrived, were written  in anonymity. They were a series of 32 novels and tales and had a  great impact. He became the Great Unknown and thritved on being  unknown. His reason for being an unknown writer was that he feared novel writing was beneath the dignity of a. clerk of the court.  There was also some politics involved.  It -was not until 1825 it became generally known that Walter  Scott was author of the Waverly Novels. He started with poetry,  but unable to maintain competition with Byron he turned to the  novel. While many of his novels were improbable, hisittorieally  they created a nationalism which was tied in with the general  Sctottish political scene.  Mark Twain in some of his writing believed that the writings  of Sir Walter Scott had something to do with the gradual change of  mood in the South United States which culminated in the Civ-il  War. It was not the characters that created the change but the  mood as expressed by the Scotit writings.  Today's youth would not praise Scott's works too highly. However one can never tell what the printed word will produce in  keeping with the times. Today's underground press for example.  5-10-20 years ago  Statement by Frank West,  chairman of Regional District  Finance Committee/  It is rather frustrating, when-  your Regional District, instead  of giiiving its undivided attention  to the many pressing problems,'  ha,s to devote its time over and  over_ again to refute and disprove palpably untrue claims,  spread around by some individuals for unknown motives, but  certainly creating anxiety mainly amongst our senior citizens.  The rather astonishing, but completely unfounded assertion still  makes the rounds that the regional taxlburd'en is so intoler-.  able that our senior citizens: will  be silowly forced to pull up their  statoes  and leave  the  electoral  mation of those taxpayers, who  prefer to judge for themselves  rather than be told what tothiwk  oir do ��� we are sure it is the  overwhelming majority ��� we  give in the following tables*' the  true piicture of taxation in the  Regional Districts, extracted  from the latest publication of  the Department of Municipal Affairs and the Municipal Finance  Authority for 1970. The figures  speak for themselves and clearly show that we in the Sunshine  Coast enjoy the lowest taxes in  British Columbia, if not in the  whole of Canada. .' ,  For comparison we selected 5  other regional districts with a  similar tax assessment as ours,  hut the picture would not have  changed one iota, if we had in-  areas.  eluded all 28 dis  tracts in our tab-  So, once again, for the infor  ulation:  TABLE 1: GENERAL ASSESSMENTS: Revenues & Expenditures:  Regional  General  Revenue     School  Social     Govt.

The difference, between  the above rates and the actual  rates shown on the individual  tax notices covers taxes for various services, which differ from  municipality to municipality, electoral areas and specified service areas, such as fire protection, building inspection, street  -ighlting, garbage collection, etc.  with charges for the services  varying correspondingly.  Although" there is some difference between the basic mill-  rates, it is nevertheless quite  apparent that the efforts of hold  ing   down   taxes  by all three  authorities, have been achieved  again in 1971. The difference of  tax levies between Gibsons and  the other communities would be  still further reduced, if the water, rates are taken into consi-  dteration. However, the figures  should prove to the taxpayers in  the eleotoral; areas that regional  taxation is not out of line, as  some people would like to make  you believe. Taxpayers also  have to keep in mind that the  Region receives only grants at  the rate of just over $1.00 per  population, which makes' regional budgeting somewhat more difficult than in the municipalities,  which receive per capita grants  of $30.00.  Drawing the eonclusibns from  the, above figures, even a most  superficial study reveals that the  tax burden imposed by our local  (governments are very moderate  indeed1 by general!. B.C. standards*. And to make the unfav-  oiraible comparisons between Region and municipalities1 is unjustified, as least as fax as taxation  is concerned.  If some people still peirsist in  assuring all and sundry that our  senior citizens are driven out of  ithe Sunshine Coast because of  the high regional taxes, even after taking advantage of their  homeowner grants,  we can do  nothing ��� about it, but point out  the spuribusness of such statements. Should anybody plan to  leave the Sunshine Coast only  to escape high taxation, he  would be m a very serious predicament, because he could not  find any place in British Columbia' where taxes would be lower.

For the sixth consecultive year  a compound interest feature will  provide for three extra interest  certificates during the life of a  bond.  A doubling of the former maximum amount per purchaser to  $50,000.  As with all past issues, the  1971-72 Canada Savings Bonds  may be cashed at any time, at  full face value plus earned interest. They wil again be the most  widely sold security in Canada,  available for cash or by instalments at any bank branch and  through authorized sales agents  including investment dealers and  trust and loan companies1. Payroll plans permit most employees to buy Canada Savings.  Bonds by regular pay-cheque de-  ; ductions.  With this year's compound interest feature, the purchaser of  a $100 bond will receive $187  when it matures Novemtoer 1,  1980, if he holds all coupons uncashed until then. Interest rates  for annual coupons will be 5%  percent the first year, 6% percent the second year, 7^ percent the next five years, and 7%  percent the last two years.  If an investor holds his $100  bond and its- first five regular  coupons t uncashed until November 1, 1976, a first Compound Interest Certificate -becomes payable on that date for $5.00. Similarly,, if the $100 bond and the  four remaining coupons are held  uncashed until November 1, 1980  a second Comlpound Interest  Certificate becomes payable for  $3.5��.-if h-e holds his bond until  maturity^without cashing aiiy of  the regular annual interest ^coupons or Compound Interest Certificates, a final Compound Interest Certif-cate also becomes  payable for $13.00. This brings  the total proceeds at maturity  of a $100 bond to $187.  Bonds of the new Series will  be on sale from October 4 and  will be dated November 1. Purchases may be made until November 15 at face value without  paying accured interest.

The planned Amichitka nuclear  Mast would, however unlikely,  kill or seriously harm many  thousiands' of us in this part of  the World. In the name of humanity we beseech you not to  gaimible with our lives.  ���Mr. L. Labonte,  President,  ��� Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce.  Editor: It is time the electorate started giving serious  thought to the December municipal elections. Competent candidates must be found to contest  as many offices as possible. One  position that must be contested  in particular is the office of  mayor of Gibsons.  The mayor has shown himself  to be a devoted public servant  but unfortunately for the village  he has allowed himself to become entangled in a personal  vendetta with the Regional  board.  -Gibsons best interests on the  board can be served only  through consultation and negotiation, not persistent, picayune  conifrontation.  Candidates for the above offices will be known shortly.  We  must support and elect theni if  we are again to enjoy respon-/  sible representation.  ���MIKE BLANEY  Editor: Since leaving Gilbsons  a little more than a year ago I  look forward to Friday when I  mostly get the Coast News and  the Sechelt Times.

Having a letter in the Sechelt  paper I naturally looked it over  and was vexed to find a bad  break caused by deleting ten  words. Unfortunately the break  would cause any reader to wonder what was wrong as it wias  really hard to understand and  most likely cause lack of interest.  Be that as it may after 25  years residence in Gibsons 1  really would like my friends to  know that I'm feeling first rate  and regret the incident mentioned. Best washes to all on the  Sunshine Coast.  ���DAVE REES  Editor: I'd like to congratulate  Mr. Bob Kelly on extending his  business a-s far as Sechelt.  I came to Gibsons 15 years  ago and at that time we didn't  know whether our garbage  would'be picked1 up or just left  until the man that had taken  the job got around to picking it  up.  Thinking back a few years I  believe Bob Kelly took the job  about eight years ago and he  started with a small pickup  truck and now through hard  work and long hours he's got'the  latest equipment to do the job.  He's not only reliable but very  kirid hearted.  I know of one case and I'm  sure there are many more acts  of kindness like this one, about  a year ago a lady's husband was  sick in the hospital and she  couldn't carry the garbage cans  to the road, so Bob Kelly picked  up her garbage at the house until her husband was well enough  to carry them out to the road.  So good luck Bob Kelly and  keep up the good work.  ���AN OLD CUSTOMER.  Movie News  At 18 years old, John David  Carson is making his, motion picture debut" with a co-starring  role in MGM's "Pretty Maids  All In A Row," produced by  Gene Roddenberry, directed by  Roger Vadim and starring Rock  Hudson, showing at Twilight  Theatre Saturday, Sunday and  Monday. #  To ibe handed a starring role  in a major film would be the  envy of most 18-yearmold actors,  but it came quite easily and naturally for John, once producer  Gene Roddenberry saw film  clips oif the actor.  The project is black, black  comedy and with it, Vadim has  more than ample opportunity for  rule breaking.  "The story itself breaks rules,'  Vadim states. "Rock Hudson  plays what is thought in the beginning to be a hero, but as the  story progresses one finds he  has -done more than incredible  things."

WANTED  Used furniture or what  have yon  Al'S USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons 886-28121  An Open Letter to the Peotple  of Sechelt, from Arthur James,  concerning the former Sechelt  Government wharf:  Sechelt Marina and Resorts  Ltd. was founded some eight  years ago on premise that there  was a need for the service of  transporting small boats between Trail1 Bay and Porpoise  Bay. A marina and it's related  services in Trail Bay, and expansion to the building of a waterfront hotel.  A special vehicle and a ramp  were built. The government  wharf was punahased.  Sechelt Marina opened its services which showed promise  when two major problems showed up. Vandalism by the young  people of I.R. No. 2 (lack of  police protection) and a zoning  plan that blocked any commercial' plans of the' first block west  of Wharf road on the waterfront  to residential only.  In the meantime, with aid of  the late Tom Duffy of Sechelt,  plans were started with the Liberal party and Mr. Jack Daivis  in his first election, to have a  breakwater built in front of the  business district of Seohelt.  In due time the money was  assigned for the project when  Mr. Norm Watson who was  chairman of the breakwater  committee of the Seohelt Board  of Trade pressured Ottawa to  have it built at Selma Park  where it has served no commercial purpose to this day.  The boat lift and rental service was shut down in the face  of these problems and I then  started Sechelt Fishery on the  Wharf, custom smoking and live  bait sales to the sportsman. This  showed promise, however the  vandalism etc., worsened with  gangs of Indian youths squatting  like seagulls on the rails of the  wharf frightening off some of  my customers, all day long. I  registered many complaints with  the RCMP but no results.  I then closed and moved the  fish business to my present place  in Roberts Creek on the highway.-'    --,"���-���--������.���.���:.-���������-       i ���*-������������-     -���<-������?���   -*  Since operating here the Sechelt Peninsula Times has run  a harrassing and slanderous series of articles with regards to  the wharf, devaluing and no  doubt building in the mind of  the arsonist that the property  was of no value and might make  a pretty fire. None of the stories  are based on good engineering  reports or anything like understanding of the real issues involving the property. I would  like to ask this very small man,  editor of the Times, where were  the police and what did the public using the waterfront do all  summer when they saw the Indian kids using it for a playground? This is private property. Would you allow them to use  your front yard, store, etc., for  their playground? or would the  police allow them to use the  highway as a playground? Does  the village council think that the  only answer to this problem is  to tear the wharf down (without  indemnity to the owners)?  The night of the fire the following are facts:  At 1:30 a.m. the fire and police dept. were called to a fire  on the wharf. However I was not  called although I have repeatedly requested they do so partially because of a- fire the month  before. If I had been called I  would have spent the night nearby, one, in order to see that the  fire didn't spring up again and  two, I might have been lucky  enough to have seen the arsonists when they returned later  that night to finish the job.  The fire department left no one  on guard and the police didn't  because there is no police patrol in the village on the grave-'  yard shift. I was notified by a  friend at 7 a.m. I phoned the  ROMP immediately and was  told that" there was no one on  duty until 8 a.m. by the night  watchman.-  I had breakfast and drove to  Sechelt to see What was going  on and found the fire department on the scene but no police  on traffic duty. I then went to'  the RCMP building and found  three young men working on  typewriters. I asked for the Cor  poral in charge and was told it  was his day off by his assistant.  I then asked him if they had notified the Provincial Fire Marshall's office in Vancouver. No,  they hadn't. Upon my insistence  he was called and later that day  I was quizzed by him. I had the  feeling that they were reasonably sure the Indian church was  also arson.  After waiting until Wednesday  I saw nothing achieved so I  phoned the RCMP in Vancouver  and complained about the inadequacy of the police protection  in Sechelt. That evening I was  interviewed by an RCMP sergeant and his assistant at some  length and have been assured  that the Sechelt detachment is  to be upgraded considerably,  also special men were being assigned to look into this arson  and other matters and for me to  do nothing until their job is finished.  In as mutch as the Seehelt  Village Council for the very first  time has asked me to appear in  camera before them regarding  the wharf. I feel it is my duty to  Coast News, Sept. 29, 1971.       5  set the facts before you all first  through this worthy paper and  comment that if you want the  village to remain static you will  only find it degenerating. If you  want progress you will have to  be concerned in electing a council that is unbiased and ready to  do their duty in all matters including fire and police protection.  Is there a sick demented arsonist on the loose? Where will  he strike next?  ���ARTHUR JAMES  Blake C.  Alderson,   D.C.  CH.ROPR ACTOR  Post Office Building, Sechelt  TUES..

I trust this clears up that  matter.  Another question is at hand  concerning dividends paid out of  Designated Surpluses. Section  192 gives a ready answer. However since this section occupies  eleven-and-a-half pages of print,  perhaps a quotation of only pairt  will suffice. Subsection 10 seems  to fit:  (10) The assumption made by  this subsection with respect to  a corporation resident in Canada (in this subsection referred  to as the "controlled corporation") that was controlled by another corporation (in this subsection referred to as the "controlling corporation").in the control period is that  (a) the designated surpluses,  and  (b) the amount of the earnings for the control period that  was available for payment of dividends of each corporation,  other than the controlled corpor-  Let's sing out  Singing by pupils of this school  district should be improved,  school superintendent R.

The vocalizing by adults as  well as students dragged so  much the pianist was bars ahead  at one point which flustered the  audience when it came to both  piano and singers displaying ne-  cesary unity.

Every contract must have four parts, the  ofifer, the acceptance, some consideration or a seal-, and form.  Consideration is usually the payment of money for goods or services. A seal is a red wafer attached to a written contract next  to each signature. Form simply  means that the terms must be  ascertained by reading a contract, if it is in writing, or by  means of what the parties said  in their conversations with each  other.  As to offer and acceptance, if  B in Vancouver writes to C in  Victoria offering to sell, say, a  piece of machinery of certain  specifications, for $5,000, the offer to remain open for one week,  and C receives the letter the following day, this would be an offer. This offer implies that the  "acceptance^fnay also be by mail.  If C posts a letter of acceptance  within a week, the contract is  complete the moment the acceptance is dropped in the mail box.  The acceptance may go astray  or -he delayed in the mail but  B is liable under the contract  and could toe sued if he did not  make delivery. This rule may  appear as being harsh against  B. He, however, is in control of  the method of acceptance and  could have stipulated, for example, that the acceptance must  be received by him within a  week, thus avoiding the difficulty.  B may cancel his offer at any  time before acceptance but here  JJ^  & UPHOLSTERY  Custom Boat & Car Tops  Furniture ��� Car, truck and boat  seats etc.  FREE ESTIMATES  Samples shown on request  ALL WORK GUARANTEED  WE STOCK FOAM  886-7310 886-9819  PENINSULA  ORNAMENTAL IRON  IRON RAILINGS  MISCELLANEOUS  FREE ESTIMATES  Phone 886-7029 or 886-7056  W.

The cancellation to be effective must  reach C before C's acceptance  and the posting of such a can-,  cellation by itself means nothing. ,      "   '  Contracts entered into in this  fashion are common in commercial transactions. If, however,  the amount of money involved  is substantial, it would be safer  to have a lawyer draw a proper  written contract for both parties' signature.  Minute message  In the Second Book of Kings,  we read of four kings that did  right in the sight of the Lord,  Jehoash 11 Kings 12:1-2, Amia-  ziah 14:1-3, Azaria-h 15:1-3 and  Hezekiah 18:13 and yet, while  three of these kings had a measure of success, they ended in  deifeat, whereas Hezekiah had  a- great victory.  Jehoash gave the precious  things of the temple to appease  . the King of Syria arid in the end  was murdered. Amaziah met defeat by the King of Israel and  the precious things of the temple were taken. He was also  murdered. Azariah ended up dying a leper.  Hezekiah was threatened by  the King of Assyria, but he laid  the matter .before the Lord, and  the Lord sent an angel who destroyed the Assyrian army.  Was there a difference between the three defeated kings  and the victorious one? There is  an answer in II Kings 12:3, 14:4.  15:4 and 18:4. Hezekiah removed  the high places, whereas the  others hadn't.  Could it be, the true church  has lost much of its testimony  and power, because it hangs  onto the high places (forms- of  worship to God, not found in the  Bible, but taken from paganism.?)  ���Rev.
