SCHOOL BOARD  Deficit budgets  nearing an  Reduction of school board  overspending from close to half  a million dollars in 1968 to a  near vanishing point was reported at Thursday night's school  board meeting last week, by J.  S. Metzler, secretary-treasurer*  Mr. Metzler expected next  year's budget would be within  government requirements and  that the boani and public would  benefit from a possible ten percent gain on budget figures.  The education department ba-  s_c   education   program  allows  Administration  Instruction  Operation     '  Repairs and Maintenance  Pupil Transportation  Auxiliary Services  Less 110% of Basic Education Program  Funds Requiring Local Approval  this school district a budget of  $1,843,631 but as^the year's forecast expense demands a further  $90,679, this must be sought by*  public assent; '��� -  Budget overspending in 1968  totalled $478,677. In 1969 rTwas  reduced to $275,152; iri 1970 to  $239,622. Last year $202,465 and  this year $90,679.    ..  The actual 1972 budget  amounts to $1,934,310 which is  $90,679 over the 110% of the department's basic education program It is broken down as follows:   v.,  $   120,814  6.24%  1,347,100  69.64%  232,220  12.01%  122,370  ��.33%  95,596  4.94%  16,210  .84%  $1,934,310  100.00%  1,843,631  $    90,679  ���  -    '   ���   '  In connection with instruction  costs it should be noted that  such salaries were increased  7.6% over last year.  The department's formula has  set the instructional unit value  throughout the province at  $15,190. The school district has  103.5 instructional' units which  multiplied by the $15,190 unit  value, gives you $1,572,165 to  which is added $103,863 approved transportation and auxiliary  servi'_es^p_ud,:for t*y the"gove_Ti:'  ment making a secondary total  of $1,676,028. Next comes the allowable 110% of last year's budget which gives the grand budget total of $1,843,631.  As this year's budget is $90,679  over the 'allowable budget, per-.  mission to go that: far must be  approved by ratepayers either  through a petition forcing a public vote or by silent consent.  (See advertisement on Page 2.)  Some board members were of  the opinion a $60,000 surplus was  alvailable but the secretary-  treasurer-  explained   this   was  hardly correct as it was basically money that was never, available for use.  While the instruction staff absorbs 09.6 percent of the budget,  other .staff salaries would raise  the wage level to possibly 73 percent of the budget.

Dog owners are also reminded to olb'tain 1972 licences  as Gibsons RCMP detachment  will be taking action against  any stray dogs.  Clifford Strand appeared in  court on Jan. 18 on a charge of  diriving  without  insurance  and  SEAL CAMPAIGN OVER TOP  The Christmas Seal campaign  on the Sunshine Coast has gone  over the top. Close to $2,450 has  been donated so far this year to  continue the fight against tuberculosis and to seek causes and  cures for other chest diseases  such as emphysema,- chronic  bronchitis and asthma. Final to-  tol last year was $1,971.  The campaign does not close  officially until Feb. 28.  SNOW  COSTS  MONEY  Gibsons, council learned from  Clerk Dave Johnston at. last  weekls meeting that December's  snow, removal had cost the village $872 not including the work  done by village maintenance  crewmen.  -was fined $250.  . Gerald Frederick of Gibsons  appeared on the same date on  a charge of refusing tp take a  breathalyzer test. He was fined  $300. Frederick was checked  on Gower Point Road on Dec. 22.  On Jan. 25, George Mathew  Guelph appeared on a charge of  impaired driving. He was* fined  $500 and prohibited from driving  anywhere in Canada- for a period of 18 months. Co_trt was told  that on Dec. 16 at 11:30 _>..ml  Guelph was checked nearXower  Road and Highway 101 and at  that time advised not to drive  his vehicle due to his impaired,  condition. The car at this time'  was parked obstructing traffic  and a wrecker ordered. Fifteen  minutes later Guelph was observed on Lower Road driving'  in an erratic manner. Guelph'  had a previous similar conviction.  No money!  The al.tiorney-;genreai's depart-'  ment in Victoria has informed  Sechelt council it will have no  funds available until March, 1973  to cover the possibility of renting space in an expanded Sechelt Municipal hall.  On this basis Mayor Ben Lang  maintained that the only thing  council could do now would be-:  to consider minor changes to the  momicipal   hall.   For   the   last ���  couple of years council has been  delbating a large enough extension to allow the inclusion of a  mag'strate's court and other pro- :  vincial. offices.

To refresh memories, it is interesting to note in the Feb. 1, 1968  copies of the Coast News that the Langdale-Gibsons bypass was  top news.  From the January, 1968, Regional Board meeting, the Coast  News reported this: "The board decided that as it had a technical  planning committee if would write the highways department and  inform it that the district board would like to be consulted before  a decision was made on the location of the Gibsons bypass."  In the preceding January 25 issue the following appeared:  A reply from Hon. P. A. Gaglardi minister of highways  states the location of the new bypass from Langdale around  Gibsons has not been settled.  The reply came as the result of a petition of residents  in the area involved sent to him through Eriic Thomson,  lawyer working for the petitioners. .  The letter from Mr. Gaglardi reads:  "I wish to acknowledge your letter of January 18 enclosing a petition from the property holders in District Lots  698, 690, 902 and 903 with resipect to the proposed by-pass  of Gibsons tvillage by the Sunshine Coast Highway 101.  "We are fully aware of this situation, and, in fact, have  been carrying out some further investigations and discus-*  sions with local people and with some offiicials of the Parks  (branch regarding possible alternatives or other solutions.  In any event, we will not fix the location until the matter  has been settled."  A Hymn to Progress  Taken from "This England Spring 1971" by Sidney W. Budd.  Down with the cottages!  Up with the flats!  Progress is sacred, so dance  To the tune of the builders, and take off your hats  To advancement by quirk or by chance.  Carve up these meadows!  Chop down those yews!  Straighten the roads! What's this talk  About beauty and heritage, scenery antf views?  Do they think that we're going to WA1_K?  Salute to the motorways! l  Flatten that hill!  Give us more room for the car.  Money's no object for you'll foot the bill  For the concrete, macadam and tar.  Do they think that this country  Is worth all the fuss  Of intelligent planning and care?  There's money to make; and for people like us  Where there's brass then we're taking our share.  (So bulldoze those villages!  Build an estate! -  Progress is sacred. Complain  If you must.. But we pray that you'll find: you're too late ���  That you're making your protests' in vain.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Lions dub was given the  production of Sechelt's May  Day celebration on an annual  ���basis by Sechelt's council.  Lynn Vernon prepares for an  appearance in operatic auditions  in Seattle during early February.  The Regional board was granted Letters Patent covering planning, contract services, local  works and refuse disposal.  10 YEARS AGO  T. R. Adams, Gibsons Library  chairman, informed the annual  liJbrary imeeting that the incoming executive would have to look  into expansion of library ser-  viioes.  Harold Fearn and son Tim  were drowned in a storm in  Gambier Island's Centre Bay  sector.  Prof. James Henderson, a retired UBC educator and Gibsons  United Church trustee died in  his 97th year.  15 YEARS AGO  Hon.

A school-board advertisement  for qualified teachers not now  teaching to help out during the  shortage of teachers.  The provincial lands department and Gibsons council are  strivinig t0 find a garbage disposal area.  20 YEARS AGO  Home Oil Distributors personnel manager Jack Hammitt informed Sechelt's PTA that  school graduates are not suited  for today's business world.  The Public Utilities commission turned down an application  by Sechelt Motor Transport for  increased bus fares.  The Coast News reports that  one more step was taken towards co__5trucfe-on of a public  lavatory in Gibsons with council  producing a tentative plan.  From the Union of British  Columbia Municipal-ties  January NEWSLETTER  For some months, persons in  authority on several B.C^ scfhool  board's have asserted piiblicly  that they would be unable to  provide adequate education facilities in 1972 because the provincial government had cut back  allowable expen__l_tres. The  UBOM's concept of the situation,  however, was that the government has dlecided merely to re*-  duce very slightly the amount  by which some large school districts may spend over the basic  education budget without going  to the people.  News-elter asked Education  Minister Donald Brothers to set  the record straight so ..that municipal, and regional district officials would 'understand the situation clearly. Mr. Brothers was  kind enough to explain the amendments he intends to introduce  at the 1972 session of the provincial legislature. His reply  follows:    -  ���"���In 1968 the finance formula  for the sharing of school district  operating expenses was amended with the objective of establishing for each year a realistic  level of approved costs which  would be shared by the government with the local taxpayers.  "This objective is achieved by  .- establishing for each school district (SD) the'cost of the basic  education program (BEP) which  takes into consideration each,  year-the number of pupils in the  public schools system and recognizes the growing actual costs  of operation in the districts.  "To go into detailed explanation of all the factors used each  year to calculate the cost of the  BEP for each SD would confuse  your readers and serve no useful purpose. Suffice it to say  that the total cost of the BEP  calculated for all school districts  in   1968 was  $221.3  million;   in  1969 it  was   $250.1  million;   in  1970 it was $281.9 million;   and  in 1971 it was $315.1 million.  "The money required to pro-  videthecost of the BEPine��gh  SD is provided by the local fc__i,  payers contributing the amount  Which can be raised by a basic  mill rate levy, and by the government paying the balance required as a basic grant to the  district. In 1968 the basic mill  rale for local contribution to the  BEP cost was 24.3 _n___s; in  1969 is Was 24.6 anills; iii 1970 it  was 24.1 mills; and in 1971 it  was 24.5 mills.  "The effect of this uniform  basic mill rate levy means that  in a SD with little property assessment the governiment pays  about 80j% oif the BEP cost,  whereas in a wealthy SD the reverse is true. This is the equalizing factor inherent in the finance formula and means the  BEP can <be provided in every  SD at a uniform cost to local ,  taxpayers in terms of mill rate.  "Cost of the BEP 'calculated  for each SD for each year is es<-  tablished as the target figure for  operating . expense budgetting.  Thus, if each SD budgetted, for  operating expenses only, the  amount required to finance the  BEP, local taxpayers would pay  only the basic mill rate levy for  operating. However, all SD's  budget each year for features  and services in varying amounts  in excess of the BEP, and the  amounts of such excess is wholly  a direct charge on the local taxpayers of each district.  "Recognizing that SDs do budget for funds in excess of the  BEP, provision was made in the  finance formula to regulate such  excess charges on local taxpayers.  . "This regulatory feature is designed in 2 stages. First, the  board of a SD can budget for  operating expenses to a level of  110% of the 'cost of its BEP at  its own discretion, and notwithstanding that this excess of 10%  is a direct charge on local taxpayers. Second, should the board  wish to budget for any amount  in excess of 110% of its BEP  cost, it can do so with the prior  approval of local taxpayers. The  government in no way usurps  the authority of a SD board to  budget for any amount for operating in excess of the BEP,  and the only control on the board  is the E^xprovail of local taxpayr  ers because they are directly  charged with the excess amount.  "With the total cost of the  BEP for all SDs increasing from  $221.3 million in 1968 to $315.1  million in 1971 \-f- an increase of  $93.8 million or 42%, in so short  a period ��� representation was  made that pe^itting'S�� boards  to budget for operating expenses  at the level of 110% of the BEP  cost created unjustifiable inflation. A detailed study indicated  that the permissive authority for  boards of larger SDs to budget  for operating expenses at the  level of 110% of the BEP was  producing inflationary results.  Therefore in October 1971 I  advised school boards I intend to  recommend to the government  that the finance formula' be. amended so that large SDs ��� those  with BEPs exceeding $3 million  ��� be permitted to budget for operating expenses up to 108% of  their programs, and that small  SDs. be permitted when necessary to budget to a 110% level,  without local taxpayer approval.  Reason for allowing the higher  figure for small SDs is that they  have proportionately higher  costs.  "While announcing to school  boards that the discretionary  authority for large SDs to /budget for operating expenses, in  excess of the BEP cost iand without taxpayer approval, will be  reduced from 110% to 108%, I  informed them that action will  be taken to provide greater financial assistance (a) to SDs  having a heavy volume of pupil  transportation operating expenses and (b) where an abnormal  increase in enrolment placed a  hardship on local taxpayers.  This added govemanent aid will  substantially reduce the volume  of non-ish are able costs to local  taxpayers.  "At the'same time it was announced that School District 39  (Vancouver) had agreed to  grant an 8.9% increase in teacher salaries for 1972. In my view  such an increase was quite unrealistic. I pointed1 out to SD  boards that teachers' salaries  rejpresent over 70% of SD operating expenses, and that in  granting salary increases in the  order of 8.9% offered by Vancouver could only mean that educational services would have to  be reduced by SDs unless they  obtained approval of their local  taxpayers for additional funds.  "I also pointed out that in the  present economic circumstances  the granting of such* large salary increases to teachers was,  inflationary and could do nothing else than contribute to the  alarming upward spiral of education costs.  "I further pointed Out to ,  boards of trustees that, as the  governiment had established  6.5;% as a reasonable increase  in salaries for its employees,  there was absolutely no justification for the government to  subsidize larger increases for  school district employees. Therefor the amounts by which teachers' salary increaises for 1972  exceed the 6.5%[increase applicable for government employees  will not be accepted for calculation of the BEP, and will have to  be paid for entirely by the local  taxpayers of the SDs concerned.  "In B.C., as in every other  jurisdiction on the continent, the  government is becoming alarmed by the continual annual increase in education costs. The  government is doing everything  possible to assist local taxpayers to meet the burden of education costs ���- first, by each  year increasing the direct grants  to school boards; second, by increasing the home owner grants  to relieve- the burden of local  taxation on the residential property owners.  ��� 'Whereas in 1966 the Department of Education estimates  amounted to $167 million, in 1971  they are some $400 million or  31% of the total revenue of the  government.  "There is a definite indication  that the taxpayers of B.C., and  for that matter in practically  every other jurisdiction, are be-  ���coming iricreasingljy resentful of  the ''mounting burden of education costs. In many parts of the  U.S. the cost of education has  risen beyond the ability of the  taxpayer, to pay for the service,  and schools are being closed for  lack of funds. This must not.  happen in B.C., but unless all  those involved with education  make every effort to bring costs  under* control it is inevitable  that there will not be sufficient  money available.  "A study recently completed  shows that if the costs of educa-  twn, health and welfare, which  are: all; essential areas, continue  to climb at the present rate, by  . 1980 these three services will require more money than the province will be able to earn in revenues. This is a most alarming  forecast. Therefore, it is essential that all concerned with edu-  cation use wisely and well the  money that can be made available to them.  "Nowithstanding the wishes  of school trustees that unlimited  funds be provided for education,  or the demands of teachers for  higher and higher salaries, there  is a limit-to how much* the taxpayer can pay for education.  Most taxpayers agree that they  should provide as much money  . as they can to ensure that the  children. of this province may  obtain the best education possible. However, the same taxpayers have every right to demand that every education dollar is wisely spenti-and that the.  ���maxSmiuim of education service  is obtained* for every dollar  spent."  N.

Editor: I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to  the Recreation Centre* committee for all that they are doing.  I am sure it was quite apparr  ent to those present at the meeting on Jan. 11 at Roberts Creek  that this committee has done a  tremendous- amount of work  planning and studying all aspects of this proposed recreatiori  facility.  Memibers of the committee are  some of the busiest individuals  in our area and yet they somehow found the tiime to put forth  this fine effort on behalf of us  al* on the Sunshine Coast.  The era of the small community halls where limited activities  took place and costs: paid by the  local residents has long gone.  In the interim con_munities and  organiza!tiohs have joined forces  to provide what recreation they  could. Now we _.ave���tihe ultimate  in this proposed centre and the  recreation possibilities are unlimited.  A project such as this, although lortg overdue on the Sunshine Coast, can only be feasible in the manner proposed. We  all pay a share and we all (benefit in so miany ways.   .  For those of you who are as  yet undecided about your vote,  consider the question: Will the  Recreation Centre help to make  the Sunshine Coast a better community in which to live? My answer ��� Yes, how could it do  otherwise!  -^���Mrs>)> NANCY L. DOUGLAS  Editor: Re proposed recreation complex: Until such time  as we in GibsonsVillage know  the cost to the taxpayers for the  building and operating of Our  ver_r necessary sewer system I  am very much opposed to any  part of ttie cost of building or  operating such, luxury items 'like,  the said complex being added to  our taxes1. Even then we are in  far more need of sidewalks or  even footpaths' where children:  going to school or people going  to the post o-fioe and stores in  the village dteh't have to corn^  pete with the motor traffic for  a place to walk. Aifter such  things as these are taiken care  of then let's' see what we can do.  There are many retired pensioners1 and widows living here  on fixed incomes who would never want or be able to use any  of the facilities such a complex  would have to offer and have to  pay for theim on added taxes is  adding insult to injury. Maybe if  such people had unions.or associations could put pressure on  somebody for more money as  these iadded) expenses come along  I would be all for it but until  then I will vote against it.  y   ~V. H. ECKSTEIN  Editor: What do you tell a  tearful 8-year-old youngster that  comes to your door with a dead  duck clasfpefl. in his armsi? And  what do you have to do to stir  the lethargic Wild Life Branch  in Victoria, off their official  stumps, and at least have the  common courtesy to reply to the  two letters sent to them, appealing for ah allotment of grain or  a sum of money to purchase  food for the growing colony of  dulcks congregating in Gibsons  Lower Bay?

It could well be these people  are too far removed from the  scene of action, holding down  comfortable chairs in warm, air-  conditioned offices in Victoria  and too busy juggling official paper to give a continental damn  to tend to the job, the preservation of wild life, for which they  were hired. .

Telephone Company's recent' crackdown on  fraudulent use of telephone credit cards is-typical of action being taken by telephone 'companies across North America to  ourlb mounting losses on long  distance -"calls.  Bob McLuckie, B.C. Tel's security supervisor, said his opposite numbers in other major;  telephone systems are finding  it increasingly necessary to prosecute offenders. A total of 88  arrests have been made through1  out British Columbia since B-C.  Tel began , its craidkidown in  September.  Telephone operators use special techniques to determine the  bona fides of callers attempting  to use credit card numbers, and  alert authorities or B.C. Tel's  own staff of five special investigators when they suspect a  credit card' is being used improperly. An attempt is then made  to apprehend offenders* in the  act of making use of theTraud-  ulent calls that cost B.C. Tel  $500,000. a year in lost toil revenue.  Mr.  McLuckie  said offenders  are charged, with theft of tele-  comar-unications senvices,/under  section 287-1-B of the Criminal  Code.' Sentences handed put by  the courts in recent cases have  ranged from suspended sentences' to fines and jail terms. Fines  have been as high as $400 and  jail terms a�� long as three  months.  In addition,. Mr. McJ-uckie  said, a number of people convicted of credit card frauds have  been ordered deported. In one  case, the ';���, courtjrequested that  the. st-itus of a landed ____xrigrant  foe reviewed by federal immigration authorities. Ma_____um  penality under Section 287-1-B is  two years in prison.

Now the  vendors are trying to get out of  it beicause of this. Isn't this a  good contract?  A. No ��� the law is not that  easily evaded. It is the day the  contract was entered into that  counts, not any art_f_cialj earlier or later date that was used.  Q. I made a deal to sell some  lumber on a Sunday. The price  was perfectly fair and even a  bit lower than the going m_a_cet  rate but the buyer has changed  his mind and now refuses to  tafee delivery , or pay me the  money. He says the contract is  no good because it was made on  a Sunday but he isn't sincere  about this and he even admits  this Sunday business is just an  excuse. What can I do?  A. Nothing. His motives are  immaterial. The fairness of the  sale price is equally irrelevant.  , Q. I am/in the ambulance  business and answered a call on  a Sunday and took an injured  person to the hospital. Now I  can't get paid. Can't I sue for  the value of my services?  A. Yes -- The Lord's Day  Act specifically excepts acts of  mercy arid necessity.  Q. I made an apointment to  see my lawyer on a 'Sunday. Do  I have to pay him?  A.
