The meeting became confused with the production of motion- plus amend[ments and motions intended to weaken motions already approved.  The meeting called by the  Sunshine Coast Regional District Ratepayers association  was chaired by William Bry-  son with Norman Buckley, association president monitoring  the discussion. Representing  the Regional board was Ed  Cuylits; regional district planner, and the roads department,  Steve Reynolds and E.E. Read-  shaw. /  The votes were usually 40  or more in favor of the grid  system and 30 or more opposed, chiefly the liockyer  r road r��_��re_entatiiyes. Their ar  gument wfts .that"they -  there to be 'left alone and that  is the way they wanted it. No  highway as far as they were  concerned.  A meeting Monday evening  in Roberts Creek Legion hall  to discuss the Regional board  committee roads; grid drew  about 80 persons.  The meeting was advertised  by people residing art ?the :fcqp;;  -of Lockyer Road as a meeting for "community discussion  of the highway grid system  effect on the Roberts Creel-  area."  As there was no chairman  Cliff Gilker who worked with,  the Regional board committee  to produce the report, was asked! to explain the grid system  report.  The meeting, then thrown  open to questioners, rambled  through and around the theme  with the result that no motions  were presented  The greater number of the  80 persons present were of the  Roberts Creek; Pratt Road and  North  Gibsons  regions.  Mobile home parks  Applications for two mobile  -����� home parks on North Rd., Gibsons were made to council at  Tuesday night's meeting. One  came from M & W Holdings,  the application being made by  John Matthews. The area involved is in, front of the Kiwanis Senior Citizens project  and will Occupy property on  the North Road front of the  Kiwanis project.  The second applicant was C.  ;B.    Sicotte,    contractor,    who  sorigth to open his park on 7%  acres of land adjacent to the  North Road fireball.  As both areas are in councils R4 zoning area both will  find it necessary to have the  area re-zoned. R4 is a holding  zone with no specified restrictions, involved until applicants  idesire from; council approval  for what they planned to do.  Each applicant will have. to  consider water and sewer. Both  rezoning applications would be  subject to a re-zoning public  hearing. Both will be': examined by Rob Buchan, town planner.  R. G. Fitchett, desiring to do  something about hi's^bldck of  land at Reid and North Roads  presented a subdivision plan  which council studied then decided to turn it over to the  roads department for its consideration.  . N. R. Harris wrote a letter  supporting the opening on  Sunday of Snug Village store  in the Bal Block. Mr. Harris,  argued other stores have op -  erated on Sunday in the past  and he saw no reason it should  not be allowed. Council  thought otherwise and voted  the Harris letter and its comments be filed.  REWARD PAID  Aid. Kurt Hoehne revealed  at Tuesday night's council  Tmeeting that the reward of  $50 offered for convictions involving village property damage was paid recently'. The culprit was discovered breaking  down street signs, iarrested on  information supplied, and fined. The reward: st-U holds good,  for conviction under charges  laid in court.

We of the Gibsons  Breakfast Group feel justly entitled to this request in view  of the misleading quotations  in your front page article of  June 20, entitled "Meeting big  flop."  Several members of our  group were in attendance. Any  information desired respecting  the purpose of this meeting  would have been made available in a true and detailed  manner if requested. But your.  reporter, posing before Jack  Brown, wasted no time in making slanderous accusations  against Alan- Nicholson/ our  long time chairman. This was  cond_rmed by Jack. This was  the responsible element that  prompted Jack to wind things  up and cancel the evening  meeting.  No, Mr. Editor, we did not  guarantee Jack Brown or anyone else $1000 and all travelling expenses, nor two full-  sized audiences. Would you  suggest that any church organization, other organization  ��� ���.'.. i  or service club would guarantee a speaker $1000 anywhere  along our Sunshine Coast?  As for there being less than  50 in attendance and no representation from other organizations, these statements are unfounded. By actual ~ count 120  were in attendance. Five  churches were represented,  with four ministers present.  Through a peculiar incident  Jack Brown was brought to  our attention 4% months ago.  Following an inquiry, we were  assured this man had. a story  to tell, particularly to youth.  His 17 years in prison had given him ample time to meditate  upon wasted years through indulgence in drugs and alcohol;  and he had pledged himself to  speak to people everywhere of  the dangers of such indulgence  and at the same time present  them, with a better way of life.  Unfortunately, his message is  one of re-living and re-telling  of his participation in gruesome knife fights.  At no time  did we correspond with Jack. Our communications and arrangements were  made with his manager, Percy  Renick. Providing we could arrange for one week's meetings  in the Vancouver area and pay  his fare, Jack confided to his  manager  he   would   come   on  faith with respect to offerings  which were to meet his other  needs.    Going   to    Vancouver  Alan Nicholson and I arranged  with Rev.  Birch  of  St.  Margaret's church for eleven meetings. Jack would be well cared  for financially.  Unknown to us until two  weeks before arriving at Gibsons, we learned Jack was  working his way north. He had  held meetings in Portland, Seattle and Tacoma. So he was  not broke on arrival. And contrary to your news article, the  Browns did not return direct  to Texas, I checked with Rev.  Birch Tuesday evening, June  19, and Jack was holding his  first meeting Wednesday night.  He reneged on his commitments for Monday and Tuesday. One of these meetings was  in a jail for youth. No dollars  there.  For your information and  that of the reader, the Breakfast Groupj-kept its commitment, and Jack Brown left the  Sunshine Coast wth far more  dollars than required for his  return to Texas.  We feel the man was misrepresented to us, and that the  whole venture was  an  error.  We are deeply grieved about  it  and   certainly ���. apologize  to  local    residents    for    having  brought him into the area.  ���F. J. WYNGAERT,  Chairman,  Gibsons Breakfast Group.

Three years have passed since Prime Minister Tru-  deau's government in 1970 decided to diversify its international relations. It was then that ambassadors were exchanged with the Chinese People's Republic and the  prime minister visited the Soviet Union.  Since then the ice has been broken for the United  States'of America to follow suit resulting in the week-  long visit of Soviet party leader Leonid Brezhnev to  Washington to exchange views with President Richard  Nixon.  Now the diplomatic tone has completed an about  face between the Western World and the behind-the-  curtain world. The situation behind the curtain did not  allow leaders of the two major countries, Russia and  China, to rest easy. Now the individual operations of  those two major countries with the rest of the world  will be watched with great interest.  The disappearance of many verbotens will create  new setups but the continued battle between China and  Russia for position will be the scenario one will have to  read in order to keep abreast of developments.  The prime minister's desire to break the ice jam between the two worlds has produced much better results  than he anticipated.  Crime doesn^t pay?  Protection of law-minded individuals these days is  weakened by a new concept of the old adage that punishment should fit the crime. The result is there is a general increase in crime.  Civilizations as well as individuals need some discipline and with an increasing world population the situation as a result of favors for the criminal type might result in crime becoming an agreeable way of life.  It is to be hoped developmeents along this line of  thought will not occur. If it does one can look back in  history to the days of Pope Sixtus V who, in striving to  control crime, according to historian van Ranke, lined the  walls of the Vatican with skulls of captured criminals.  Governments of most nations are well aware of increasing crime so perhaps appointments to the various  courts may produce judges who will make the punishment fit the crime more closely. If the laws and police  are to be respected mollycoddling criminal types with  light sentences and freedoms while serving prison terms  will not help.  Let us conclude with a note for the RCMP. If we  can commit some sort of crime, get a light sentence with  some well thought out freedoms while being kept at public expense with nothing to worry about, make way for  the editor.

Totem Realty ads offer 20  acres on highway' at $995;  Fletcher Road cleared lot, $450  A few tips gathered from  time to time from trolling fishermen and! personal experience over a long period, are  offered by Walter B. Boucher  of Granthams, after many  years in this area.  Have at least 400 feet; of 20-  pound test nylon on your reel.  As nylon is so reasonable these  days it's advisable to renew it  every spring. Check from time  to time for knots in the line.  Knots will break the line easier than a ten pound salmon.  Check your reel from time  and oil, seeing that it brakes  easily with your thumb.  Check guide lines on , rod,  more particularly the top one.  Often grooves appear with  constant strain of the nylon  line. Use a small round file to  smooth out the channel.  Use two rod holders, and let  both lines out the same distance, about 75 feet, with moderate tension on the reel. Never so loose that the line unravels when the salmon stops  running. '  Better to use only one\ilash-  er with herring strip and the  other with your favorite lure  only.      '  You will land 90 percent of  your salmon, if you don't touch  the rod when in the holder,.  when the salmon strikes. Wait  until it finishes its first run,  then grab the rod and keep  the tension on the line. So  many fishermen grab the rod  on the first impulse, often"  creating a loose line. This  more than anything else gives  the salmon a chance to shake  the hook loose.  I have had a northern coho  take over 300 feet of linev  jumping five and six times  clear of the water (a sight to  behold). The natural instinct  is to grab the rod out of the  holder, but I say once again  leave it if you want the salmon in the boat.  Guide the speed of the boat  with the running of the tide.  Faster with the tide and. slower against it. The tip of your  rods is always a good guide.  Never use the net for salmon  over 15 pounds, as they are so  uncontrollable with the average net, one is so liable to be  lost. Better to play them until  they come alongside of the  boat then use the gaff.  Watch the action of your  flasher before letting it out to  its full length. Always from  side to side action. Never  round and round. If you are  not satisfied with -the action .  reverse it.  Always strip your herring  bait before leaving home. Wrap  each strip in cloth with a rolling motion, never letting them  touch each other. By this method you will find the strips  much tougher . without losing  color, and will stay on the  hooks much better.  If you ever hook onto a  large salmon and it goes down  several hundred feet and you  can't get him up, put, or at  least, keep the tension on your  line and tap the rod with a  weight or with anything that  is handy, and you will find  that he will come up to see  what it is all about. Fantastic  but true.  . Trolling off Salmon Rock,  several years ago, I hooked  a 36 pound salmon which took  me almost over to Popham Island well over a mile away.  Finally he went to depth, taking over 400 feet of line until  I could see the bare reel. As  he stayed down for some time  I tapped the rod with a weight  and sure enough he started.up.  When I finally got him alongside the boat I was able to  gaff him, and I was amazed  to find only the top hook of  my herring strip embedded in  its belly. No wonder he took  me for such a ride.  While salmon are getting  scarce around these parts, one  shouldn't forget the marvellous ozone one gets while out  A tonic in itself. Something  one cannot get on the mainland, with all the pollution'  around. Therefore I say, get  out, deep breath, and. keep  healthy. Cheerio to all who  fish.  Cove.

Of the 65 heads, 21- contained magnetic wire tags. The 32  sport caught heads accounted  for 19 and the 33 commercially caught heads, 2. The low  number of tags from the commercial heads is as yet a mystery. Most Of the tags were in  2 and 3 year old Chinook.  Half the tagged fish caught  in April and May had been re-'  leased from Fisheries  Service  hatcheries   iri   Georgia   Strait.  The other half originated from  Puget    Sound    hatcheries    in  Washington. Tag analysis shows  that   U.S.   fish   are   presently  concentrated in the southeastern sector of the Strait, around  Victoria and the Gulf Islands.  Canadian Chinook were found  to range generally northward  from the hatcheries holding to  the coast t'hey were released  on. Big Qualicum Chinook released at the.

The Canadian hatchery fish  caught were all two "year olds,  from the 1971 spawning. Fisheries did not expect to find  three year old Canadian fish,  because very few Chinook  were nose-tagged in Canada  before last year. AH the U.S.  Chinook were three year olds.

Adventure and romance  can run riot. If your personal  chart looks good, increased  energy can bring gain.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  Saturn can bring /results of  what you have been working  for. If they have been worthy,  you are to be congratulated.  If, oh the other hand, you  have let greed and avarice rule  your life, you may have a lesson to learn.,  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  A lot of good things are in  store for Gemini now if you  have "kept your feet on the  ground." Some stroke of luck  could clear the way that will  enable you to make plans for  the7 future.: Don't gamble!  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  New starts aire indicated that  should work out well if unmotivated by temperament. If  you make the mistake here of  pushing others around to gain  your own ends, you'll regret  it later.  LEO -July 23 to August 23 -  A "re-birth" of some kind is  indicated for Leo persons now.  This may take a variety of  forms, naturally ,as all Leo  people don't have the same individual charts. But you can  be sure that it's all for the  good.  VIRGO - Aug. 24 to Sept. 32 -  Creative expression is highlighted in the chart for Virgo.  In fact, the planetary aspects  are, SO beneficial, that a child  born to a Virgo parent at this  time (in 1973) is likely to go  a long way. '/'  LIBRA - Sept. 23 to Oct. 23 -  The chart for Libra presents  some interesting possibilities  at this tme. The whole thing  hinges upon where the planet  Mars was at the time of birth.  As this changes from year to  year, space doesn't permit  much advice.  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  Astrology has a steel trap  waiting to be sprung by un  wary persons born in Scorpio.  Only YOU can trigger this off;  if you. are careful and "take it  easy" now, you can be guided  around this pitfall.  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23-Dec. 21  The  solar  chart for this  sign  looks extremely  good  at  this  time. Domestic matters or romantic  interests   are  favored.  If things are not good, at this  time take it slow.  CAPRICORN - Dec VI Jan. 20  All   "problems"   pertaining   to  your personal life should clear  up in almost magical way by  the   end   of   the   week.   You  should   be   able   to   see   very  clearly   that   any.  "problems"  aren't that bad.    ,     ,  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 - Feb. 18  Continue  to  build, for  future  security  at  this  time,  but  be  sure   that   you   are   actually  ���'building"    and    not    merely  wandering   around   iri   circles.  Be cautious of making  snap-  judgments    now,    they    may  turn out to be all wrong.  PISCES -Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  You can gain much this week  by   listening   to   what,   others  have to say, whether you agree with them or not; You'il  learn, by evaluating ALL view  points. Things should be working out pretty well for you.

Visitors are always welcome.  Student to work  under grant aid  Five Elphinstone school students will be employed under  a government scheme during  the summer months. The school  board at its last meeting gave  approval to seek a grant of  $10,000 to employ five students  on a school grounds project.  It is expected that. more  than 1,060 British Columbia  students will be employed on  education-oriented jobs this  summer with money being  made available by the department of education to school districts, colleges, universities and  a few independent organizations.  The Hon. Mrs. Eileen Dailly,  minister of education, said her  department would allocate  $959,000, in effect the total  amount awarded to it as part  ' of the provincial government's  over $20,000,000 student employment fund announced last  month.  The projects to be undertaken range from tutoring inmates  of  correctional institutions to  the  development of materials  for cold water survival training   and  the   maintenance   of  school   grounds.   Employment,  which is expected to average  out to two months, is not to be  allowed to displace any regular work forces.  The result of the strike vote  taken by Local 1119 at the  Port Mellon pulp mill was  77.7% in favor of strike action to back their demands for  a 10V2% wage increase plus  more vacations and adjustments to the welfare and pension plans.  The total UPIU membership  in B.C. voted 86% in favor of  strike action. Ten days notice  has been served on the Pulp  and Paper Industrial Relations  Bureau (PP1RB) representing  the pulp and paper manufacturers. The present contract  expires on July .1, If strike action is necessary a majority of  the pulp mills in the province,  and all newsprint machines  will be shut down.  Negotiations resumed in Vancouver  on Monday, in  a  last  .   ditch effort to resolve outstand  ing items and avert the threatened strike.  Fred Allnutt, president of  Port Mellon Local 1119, emphasizes that local union leaders, although not wanting a  strike, are not bluffing. They  fully intend to take strike action if it is necessary to accomplish their goals. With the  rapidly escalating cost of living and increasing taxes the  manufacturers' offer of a 1lh%  .��� wage increase is unthinkable  i Mr. Allnutt -said. ������-._.     ���  T     I " ' .   . .

Due to increased costs the  association found it necessary  to raise the fees a small  amount, however they are  well within reason and still  lower than many other communities.

Regulations as to type of pipe and installation  will be mailed to each registered property owner in  the next week.  June 16, 1973.  DAVID JOHNSTON  Municipal Clerk.  Parliament Hill  There are many communities in this rugged province  that are dependent on air  transportation-and on the need  for improved airport facilities.  Federal-provincial co-operation  can help to minimize some of  the existing, problems -in this  area.  I can cite one instance in  which paying equipment was  brought into Bella Coola in a  provincial road-paving program and an urgent request  was made by me to the federal  government to help assist in  the paying of the community's  gravel-filled airstrip.  Although federal government  policy calls for an economic  and1 engineering survey prior  to any commitment given, I believe there should be some  flexibility in such matters.  The presence of the paving  equipment in this particular  instance could represent a $75,  000 saving to the federal government should it agree to the  paving of the airstrip, which  is the communitys' life-line  with the ohtside world.  This is simply one of the  many problems with regard to  the total transportation system in British Columbia and  specifically here in Coast-  Chilcotin.  Questions have been raised  in the House on a number of  occasions regarding freight  rates, railway interchange, box  cars and other matters of interest to British Columbians .  and Western Canadians.  The government's response  to my questions on these and  other matters in the.transportation field hasn't been sufficiently informative. I think it's  time for the public to be spared further vague replies to  questions that are asked! in the  house in the interest of western Canadians.  The economy of B.C. is dependent   on   a   transportation ;  system  that provides  a  vital1  THE INSURANCE  CORPORATION OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  APPaNTMENT NOTICE  Mr. Norman Bortnick  B.

Your co-operation, also  that of Mr. James in attempting to satisfy council's requirements is appreciated.

We must obtain a clearance certificate from the district agricultural agency on all  the lands prior to approval.  4. We are still not in favor  of the lots abutting, adjoining  and under the B.C. Hydro  right-of-way.  5. We feel the golf course  concept or. parts of the Hydro  right-of-way to be impractical  and basically a little "icing on  the cake"  6. To the best of our ability we have respected your request for as little publicity as  possible about Sechelt Lands  development plans. Nevertheless with the. activity taking  place On the site, the public is  naturally intenested. and we  are receiving considerable feed  back.  7. 7 There is considerable concern from many quarters as to  just what impact these minimum size parcels (lots of 6,000  sq. ft.) will have on the future desirable use, appearance  and sensible . function of this  narrow, vital isthmus of land.  8. We must obtain more  statistical diata as to drainage,  elevations and possible alternative uses for the low-lying  and marshy areas. It may quite  well be that the marshy area  could be made a benefit in the  long range planning, rather  than an apparent stumbling  block at the moment. Sometimes natural formations can  be our greatest asset if studied  in depth.  To try to be as brief as possible and. still convey important information I feel strongly that much more detailed  study must be made of the  whole acreage involved in Sechelt Lands proposals together  with proposals, of all other developers, and the residents and'  prospective home owners.  It appears to me that Sechelt  Lands proposals attempt to��  create the Tgreatestnuniber off 7  parcels out of every available  square foot of land with minimum regard to the future effect on present residents and  the long range impact on this  vital hulb or core of the Sunshine Coast.

This should be  done with prime consideration  of our present residents and  prospective residents. When  this is done, then report back  to council.  I do not propose to hold  back much longer in making  full disclosure to all interested parties, residents, transients or anyone exactly what  we have all worked on diligently and at great length for  the past years.  The government agencies involved in all the studies .thus  far have been most co-operative and we have purposely  withheld full public discussion  until worthwhile plans and  specific data were availalble.  That time is close at hand and  public notices of all types will  be utilized to bring the people  into the picture in order that  we may all learn their feelings and desires.  Although this letter may appear somewhat informal I can  assure you that Council and  other bodies, both government  and private will concur in general with my remarks.  The controlled and orderly  growth pattern for all Sechelt  must be tied together with the  full and free participation of  everyone; so you can look forward to much open public discussion in the near future.  This letter is lengthy but I  felt necessary in order to appraise you and all concerned  what has been in the minds of  many and make people aware  of the long hours spent in special meetings in order that  when the ultimate proposed  plan for Sechelt comes forth,  everyone will have ample opportunity to study it and agree,  complain and argue as much as  they wish.

While Jehovah's Witnesses  have been well aware all along  of their innocence in connection with any subversive activity during both World Wars,  in! every nation, and have always been perfectly aware who  were the real guilty ones, it  is now possible for any other  fair-minded person to acquaint  themselves with the undeniable facts.  The guilt, before Almighty  God the Judge of all men, must  lie with those who sponsored  the slaughter from both sides  of -the battle lines, while pretending to be loyal to just the  one, and reaping great financial rewards from it all.  For those who would find it  inconvenient to take a special  trip to our nation's capital,  there is an article in the latest  Awake magazine entitled What  Canada's official records now  reveal.  ���jGRENVILLE DRAKE  Streamside logging practices  are being studied by the legislative standing committee on  forestry and fishing, Hon. Jack  Radford, minister of recreation  and conservation has announced. Don Lockstead, MLA for  this area is a member of that  committee.  Referring to the question of  stream bank and lake shore  protection Mr. Radford said:  "Fisheries, both sport and  commercial, deserve much better protection of streams than  has been practiced in the  past."  He said! that salmon and  trout are dependent on streams  for spawning. Some species  live in streams all or ,part of  their lives."  "Many of these streams have  been seriously damaged by the  removal of forest cover in extensive areas of clear-cut coast  al logging. I am in favor of  protecting streams and lake  shores by leaving buffer zones  of natural vegetation wherever ,  possible."  The minister said that recently issued Forest Service  guide-lines for coastal logging  are a step in the right direc-  Beach sanded  Loads of sand were scattered  over the Municipal Beach area  a couple of Sundays ago and  aided by Gibsons Volunteer  Firemen, trucks and other  equipment made an improvement to the beach.  Barry Reeves, Ken Fiedler,  Fred Strom, Harold Wray, Dan  Austin, Tim and Eric Inglis,  plus the volunteer firemen  handled the trucks and machinery. The whole project  was worked on a voluntary basis.  _���_________________________���_���  tion. These guide-lines provide  for a system of patch logging  with initial clear-cut openings  of 200 acres or less and retention of trees along 50 percent  of stream banks.  "However," Mr. Radford said  "the select standing committee  on forestry and fisheries is continuing its examination this  summer of streamside logging  practices and it Will report to  the legislature in the autumn.  "Pending the advice of this  committee and any government action arising from it, I  would sincerely hope that the  logging industry will practice  restraint and careful environmental management in all  woods operations adjacent to  streams."  Mayor queries  erosion ruling  Foreshore erosion to banks  on the waterfront does not,  qualify for storm damage compensation, yet compensation  for damage to driveways, patios and landscaping created  by the same storm is permissible.  This apparently is the policy  which comes out of claims  made for the Dec. 25 storm  which created considerable havoc in. shorefront areas, according to correspondence  which has been sent to claimants in Gibsons area.  Replying to this Mayor Walter Peterson of Gibsons has  enquired from Chief Assessor  J. D. Elander whether plugged  up culverts on the provincial  highway which caused water  to flow through private properties creating extensive damage can- be classified as normal erosion.

Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  Phone 886-2622  PATRICK D. WALSH, recently-elected president of the  B.C. School Trustees Association. Mr. Walsh, 42 is. a lawyer and member of the Peace  Rover North School District.  He has been with the school,  board since January,  1968.  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q. I am a businessman in  a small town and a competitor  is running down my goods ���  stating that they are of poor  quality. What can I do about  it?  A. Plenty. This falls under  a branch of law known as defamation. You did not say whether the defamation was in  writing (libel) or spoken (slan- .  der). In case there should be  some confusion about this, as  the legal results of these two  acts are often quite different,  it should be understood that  for this particular type of defamation it makes no difference whether the defamatory  statement is written or spoken.  You should see your lawyer  immediately and instruct him  to write a letter demanding an  apology' and retraction ��� in  w-riting. We woulfl riot: advise  a suit for damages, unless a  substantial business loss has  already been incurred. A law  suit would probably be defended and there would be some  delay before the matter came .  on for trial. You would have to  prove the statements were  false and there would be expenses involved and the usual  loss of time, and wear and  tear on the nervous system  attendant upon any legal action.  In addition, even if you were  successful and were awarded a  sum of money by way of damages, many people would still  say "Where there's smoke,  there's fire." It is generally  best to stop the repetition of.  the defamatory statements. If  the letter doesn't work you  can sue for damages and an  injunction (a court order) prohibiting the repetition of the  defamatory material until trial.  The trial would not come up  for many months, if at all,  but the injunction can be applied for in a few days. This  court order is granted 99 times  out of 100, and the matter may  be allowed to rest there. The  person sued may force the  matter on to trial-if he wants  to, but this would be unusual.  Of course, if the statement is  repeated, the person sued can  be.fined or imprisoned, or both  for contempt of court.  If damages have been suffered, the person suing can always have a trial if he wishes.  The letter from a lawyer as  suggested will usually solve  the problem without the necessity for any further action.  VACANCIES FILLED  Warren McKibbin, a Gibsons  accountant and James Dunn of  Sechelt were elected to fill va-  cancits on the St. Mary's Hospital board at its meeting last  week.  ,r In Court
Lorrie Fineday, Vancouver,
was fined $10 or two days for.
having no brakes on his vehicle and $25 or three days for
failing to submit accident reports. A third charge of failing
to have insurance brought a
fine of $250 .
Johnny Joe Phare, Gibsons,
was sentenced to 60 days in
jail  after  being found guilty
on a charge of wilful damage.
Court had. been told earlier
the accused had been seen
tearing signs down on the government -wharf.
In family court a juvenile
was put on one year probation
on three charges of forgery.
An order of restitution was also made in the amount of $60.
Court was told the accused
was using cheques to obtain
money from another person's
bank account.
