Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B.C.  . Printed and PublishedTat Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,  Number 1, January 8, 1975.  GIBSONS SEEKS TO EXPAND  .#^.JMW.'y:  wer last year  The Sunshine Coast Regional  Board's 1975 provisional budget  totals $713,966. This is an increase of a.most $186,000 over  last years's $528,170.  The new budget, approved at  a regular board meeting Dec.  19, reflects the board's expanding functions, such as planning arid water development an  increased staff,  and inflation.  Significant expenditure increases are in board salary increases which went up $9,600  from last year's $8,000 to this  year's $17,600 for board and  committee chairmen and board  directors. ,  General government services  which includes such iteiris as  administrative personnel saJr  aries, office rent and mairitain-  ance, and advertising haver increased from $89,150 to $115,  510 but this will be offset by  increased government revenue  from soures such'as a provincial administration ..grant and  tax requisitions from the re-  - gion and *the village.;    Y  The provisional budget also  shows significant increases in  - fire protection, maintainance  and adiministration of gaihage  sites, building and plumbing,  and community planning.  The 1975 increases in building and plumbing, community  planning and water supply and  distribution reflect the tremendous growth of the area. Planning costs for insta-ice, which  must play a more significant  role with the influx of more  people, more dwellings, and  more subdivisions, has leaped  from last year's $28,820ito this  year's provision of $50,095.  3 impaired  drivers nabbed  Gibsons ROMP report three  impaired driving charges laid  as a result of holjdayroaid  blocks set up in Gibsons area  from Dec. 13 to Jan. 2.  A total of 585 vehicles were  stopped in the three w:<-ek  period resulting in 56 tra_Bfic  notices for defective vehicles,  four traffic tickets, and two  roadside driver's license suspensions.  Sechelt RCMP report one  charge of impaired driving resulting from roadblocks in the  same three week period. Out of  425 vehicles stopped, two road  side license suspensions were  given and a number of vehicles  received traffic notices for defects. ' y  An RCMP sipokesman said  the public appeared to be conscientious about the dangers  of drinking and driving thus  making the holiday period relatively quiet.  First baby!

(By ROB VAN BUTTEN)  Whatvwiti it meari if the vil-  laige of Giixsons expands its  bouiiiiiaries?  Well, that depends where  you live. If you're already in  the village, the basic asset is  that /the; village government  .will Thave a larger tax base  and more money to work (with  to provide not only the necessities such as sewer and water  but it will also provide money  for parks and recreational fat-  cilities and other amenities  that make life pleasant  When the proposed expansion announcement wtas made  last week Alderman Stuart  Metcalfe said that at a present  29.40 mill rate the village is  already taxed--to the limit.  "We're scratching all the  time," said Metcalfe, "it's impossible to operate without industry."  The first stage of the proposed expansion, and the most  important in terms of tax revenue woulld be the acquisition  oif Piort MeQIon. Industry provides a ilarge and lucrative tax  requisition and with most of  the Qanfor employees living in  'Gibsons, and using the services asnd amenities of Gfteons,  it would! only seeni natural that  the industry's ''.taxes:. go directly  to the iiiiinicipialityr instead of  the proviricial goyerriinent jand  the Regional board. "  If you live in the area between Port Mellon and Gibsons  you may balk at the idea of  t 'bigger and better5 but the population is going to come anyway and it would probably be  most feasible in the long run  to co-ordinate planning .facilities and services.  The water system in Gran-  thams, for instance, is inadequate for fire protection and  domestic supply. Engineering  consultants Dayton & Knight  stated in a report that lt(he  sewage problem in Graaithams  is '^particularly serious."  The waiter and sewage facilities at Soames, Hopkins, and  Wildlife club  seeks members  Gibson's Wildlife cluib is set  for an active 1975 under its  president Bud Beeman. Ra(y  Delong is vice-president, Mrs.  M. Buchanan, secretary Don  'Heas treasurer and Steve Holland past president.  There is a nexecutive of nine  in change of the various phases  of cltdb operation: If you want  to .join/ the club see Andjy  Anderson. !He is also coach of  the    jun-oi^JTT31^0^1115' 16    or  ���under..' .< .-.'  The executive hopes to have  work done on the club premises  on 'Highway 101 diiiring this  year so some work parties will  be organized.  Langdale are aTso limited and  will need improving and expansion in the future.  Alderman Metcalfe noted  .that as part of an expjanded  village, Hopkins Landing would  pay a water rate substantially  below what the Regional District charges now.  Concerning recreation. Mayor Labonte would! like to see  more land set aside for parks  and green belts, especially in  the area between Soames Point  and Langdale. Lalbonte said  t-hiat there were plenty of subdivisions springing up in that  area but no land set aside for  parks and recreational facilities.  For many residents in this  area, especially the urban escapees, the words growlthj, expansion, progress, all carry  ominous overtones. But one of  these not-too-distant days we  will probably see a slick four  lane highway, between here  and Vancouver. And) with, it  an influx of people.  Gibsons council says it is not  intent on using steam-roller  tactics to acquire the new territories. The decision may ultimately be yours in a public  referendum.  Perhaps the Dayton and  Knight report sum�� up the  ideals of the exspansion when  it states that the general population will enjoy a decrease  in taxes and a substantial increase in services.  Port Mellon to be  Extension of Gibsons Village to take in Granthams,  Soames Point, Hopkins Lrantiing and Langdale areas along  with an "umbilical" cord attachment to Port Mellon1 to  obtain its assessment tax, is sought by Gibsons council.  Land between Langdale and Port Mellon will not be  included.  This move. was revealed by Mayor Larry Labonte  who has outlined it in a letter from council to Hon. James  G. Larimer, minister of municipal affairs. Council asks  for Letters Patent for a two phase development. Phase  one would be the inclusion of Port Mellon and phase two  the addition of Granthams, Soames Point, Hopkins Landing and Langdale.  Reason for seeking this expansion lies in the fact Gibsons council realizes expansion  to the higher levels at the base  of Mt. Elphinstone will not  take place as the land at the  lower or shoreline level will  get first call from people desiring to settle in this area. .  In its plan to develop the  areas asked for, council stresses fire protection, a water  '���system, secondary Sewage, integrated, planning, wider rec-  lieatiorial ' iserviceis, Timproyed  iriuriicipat riiainteriance and a  better finance base for the improvement of the area envisaged in council's overall plan.  The desire to include Port  Mellon is based on the situation which sees most of the  employees of the Canfor mill  residing in Gibsons and areas  adjacent. Council maintains  Port Mellon taxation, instead  of going into' provincial government general funds should  be used for municipal improvement in the area in which  employees live, adjacent to the  mill area.  Council recognizes that in  the past, the department has in  similar cases attached an industrial area to a municipal  residential area so that the  municipality can better the services for the employees of tlie  industrial area.  In this takeover, when it becomes a fact, the municipal  authority would take over  whatever improvements now  exist, which are chiefly water  supply.  Discussing    the    move    by  Wharf change  draws protest  Gibsons council has wired  Jack Pearsall MP to approach  Ottawa authorities to delay  work now being done on Gibsons wharf. Council protests  the action planned' and says  that it received no knowledge  of Ottawa's intentions.  Greenlees Piledriving Co. of  Vancouver is under federal  government contract to make  renovations and changes on  the. federal wharf, which is  managed  by  Gibsons   council.  From what the Coast News  can learn, after replacing some  pilings,' it is understood the  company will work on the  ramp from Marine Drive to  the wharf and reduce its width  about 10 feet by eliminating  the sidewalk and about four  feet of the traffic lane on that  side.  council Mayor Labonte maintained that in the years to  come and in the not too distant future the areas considered would find themselves better off under an established  municipal authority which has  wide enough powers now to  take care of all their needs.  Consulting engineers Dayton  & Knight Ltd. who have done  practically all the exploratory  work.'; for Gibsons council and  the Regional District board during the last five^^oi^ six years,  have made a*i^  port to council on the scope of  the plan.  Actual land areas in be included are District Lots 687,  693, 694. 911, 1402, 1401, 1400  and 1399.  Study of growth patterns  has led council to look towards  the northern areas rather than  to Sechelt.  The taxable value of the Port  Mellon area is now $5,399,135  which would double Gibsons:  assessment base. The impact  of this revenue would be felt  on Gibsons where a large proportion of CPP employees live  and also on the areas which  council seeks to absorb into a  larger district municipality.  Growth expectations have  been explored by council and  they reveal that in the area  Gibsons to Langdale total population in 1961 was 1,553 and  in 1971, 2,805, an 80 percent  growth.  Extending growth figures,  council has come up with an  expected 1975 increase of 23.9  percent, giving Gibsons a population of 2,400, Granthams 500  Soames Point 225, Hopkins.200  and Langdale 150, a total of  3,475 compared to the 1971 census total of 2,805.  The eight district lots contain close to 1,000 acres of  good residential land, which it  is logical to assume will be  filled up before home seekers  will drift to the higher levels..

Phone 886-2622       WM4fo,&am,  A natural development  The proposal of Gibsons municipal council led by  Mayor Larry Labonte, to extend its north side boundary  as far as Langdale, including Port Mellon for tax purposes, is a brave yet sensible step. Council sees no serious  resic-ential development inland as long as there is available residential property in the shoreline area. Therefore  the logic behind council's proposal is sound.  How the public involved will accept it is a matter  to be determined. There will be those who prefer the  status quo, even though continued steady growth along  ���the shoreline will create a serious problem for the residential areas.  With Granthams practically at saturation point and  "With no organized power in its own hands to help itself,  "the offer of Gibsons council to include it in the village  is timely. Granthams is now Tanthin the jurisdiction of  Tithe Regional District board, which is limited in scope of  municipal operation. The same argument holds for  Soames Point, Hopkins Landing and Langdale.  To get down to the nitty-gritty of the proposal  the matter of taxation is the crux; Under the Regional  board the areas involved live within means supplied by  the provincial government plus local taxation covering  lights or water. Under the proposal projected by Gibsons  council, there would be the impact of total assessment  taxation from the Port Mellon industry. At present this  .;"��� money is absorbed in the provincial government's general revenue. Gibsons council feels this taxation should  be used for the benefit of Port Mellon employees who  live in the areas of the Gibsons proposal.  If one regards this idea of attaching Port Mellon to  the proposed area tax base as unusual, do not think the  situation is unique. The provincial government has  iii other sections of the province, attached industrial  areas to residential municipalities, because those living  in the municipality were mostly employees of the nearby  industry.  ' The method used is the umbilical cord approach, a  municipality which contains a large number of industrial workers of nearby industrial plants benefits from  the taxation arising from the product of their labor.  By this means a municipality with the use of taxation from the industry gives the employees and town  services attached the benefit of services municipalities are required to supply.  .   Therefore turning Port Mellon taxation over to a  municipal authority nearby for the benefit of those working at the plant but living nearby has distinctive merit.  Martin Dayton, consulting engineer for Gibsons  council has surveyed the area involved on a water and  sewer basis and his report shows that most of the existing waterworks systems in the area will be inadequate  for the prevailing type of residential development. He  also analyzes the sewage possibilities which will be required shortly to avoid septic tank saturation.  Council in its request to the minister of municipal  affairs, offers the extended area fire protection, waterworks systems, a secondary sewage system, planning,  maintenance and the improved use of taxation, with increased assessment via Port Mellon allowing decreased  taxation and an increase in services.  To sum up, the extended area, Granthams, Soames  Point, Hopkins Landing and Langdale would have closer  municipal attention which will become a positive necessity as the area population increases.  The status quo along the Sunshine Coast is changing continually and it will change faster in the area between Port Mellon and Gibsons than it will in other sections. So what will the wishes of the proposed extended  area be ��� stand still or prepare for the eventual future!  An Janalysis of the area under  consideration in the proposed  expansion of Gibsons village  has been made by Dayton &  ___aigh!t.1Ltd. consulting engineers for  Gibsons   council.   The  general trend of that analysis  is revealed in the following:  The Village of Gibsons is  considje^rig bound^_ry expansion hdr$hwi_kd- towards Port  Mei-lon. Sridh expafriMori js tentatively proposed to include  the W_st Howe Sound Distrjet  Lots 687^ 693, 694, 91_, '1402,  1401, 1400 and 1399.  At this time, thearea under  study is partly not served) with  water, paitlyiserved .with water by small inadequate sysr  tems, and partly served by an  isolated Regional District system. None of the area has sew  ers.  ~A portion of the area comprises high value urban devr  elopment on small lots indistinguishable from that in the  adjacent Village of Gibsons.  This development has almost  no   fire   protection   and   soil  conditions  are unfavorable to  effluent    disposal    by    septic  tanks and tile fields.  The intent of this survey is  tti explore the cost and feasibility of providing the area  with adequate, waterworks and  sewerage systems so that an  assessment can be made of the  desirability of a boundary ex-  tehsiph to jihclude the above-  meritiohed district lots.  The scope of this report is  limiteiid to a preliminary assess-  irient to see if additional consideration is warranted. Btor  fhjat reason, the field 'work has  been ^limited and a research of  past studies and reports is the  principal basis for the investigation.  Should the boundary extension proceed and. should it include the district lots under  consideration, additional field  studies should be undertaken  to determine the precise integration of the existing water  systems in the proposed plan  and to elbtain some field elevations for the proposed sewer  routes.  increased as follows:  1961  1971  Granthams Landing  189  404  Soames Point  85  195  Hopkins Landing  135  169  Langdale  53  93  462  871  WATER SUPPLY AND        SEWERAGE  Existing Development  The area is about 1000 acres  in size arid houses a mixture of  permanent population and summer homes.  ���Starting at Gibsons Village  boundary is the Chekfwelp Indian Reserve which is fully  urbanized with homes on leased Band Land; The Reserve is  served by the Gibsons water  system to an adequate standard  and improved water service is  not of concern. Sewerage of  the waterfront homes, however, may be desirable.  Beyond Chekwelp is the  Granthams Landing area which  has about 100 homes served by  a small system. The source of  water is a small 17,000 gpd  pump in Soames Creek pumping to a 10,000 gallon wood  stave storage tank."The system  is inadequate for fire protection and for domestic supply.  The homes in Grarithasms Landing are on small lots and the  sewerage problem is particularly serious.  Following Granthams is  ISoames Point which has about  75 homes served by another  small water system. The source  is also a small pump in Soames  Creek, below that of Granthams Landing, pumping to  two 10,000 gallon wood stave  storage tanks. This system is  Someone forgot!  , The five   Southern   Alberta  Bands of   Treaty  No.   7  have  agreed to a $250,000 settlement  from  the  federal  government  covering   annual   ammunition  payments dating back to 1877.  The    agreelment,   negotiated  between  the   federal   govern- -  ment and the Blackfoot, Blood,  Pieigian,    Saircee   arid   Stoney  Blands,   was  made   public   by  Hon. Judd Buchanan, minister  of Indian and Northern Affairs.  Mr. Buchanan explained that  Treaty No. 7 calls for annual  payments of $2,000 for the purchase of ammunition or, at the  request of the Band��, for other  things.    After    extensive    research  it was  apparent these  payments had not been made :  every year. The quarter of a  million    dollar    compensation  was agreed to by both parties.

Beyond Soames Point is the  Hopkins Landing area. There  are about 125 homes in Hopkins Landing served by a third  small system. Contrary to the  systems serving Granthams  Landing and Soames Point, the  source for the Hopkins Landing system is adequate and in  fact has surplus capacity. The  source is a drilled 200,000 gallons per day deep well which  could serve, in addition to the  already serviced 125 connections, a further 75 connections.  The rest of the Hopkins Landing iwater system is inadequate  because of deficient fire and  balancing storage ahid because  -of the many small diameter  pipes restricting flow.  Finally in the north is the  Langdlale area which now has  * about 50 homes served* with  iwiater by a water system deriving water from a 200,000  igpd deep well pumping to a  50,000 gallon storage reservoir.  This well has considerable  spare capacity ���-' possibly adequate for another 150 connections.  The Granthamis Landing,  (Sloames Point, Hopkins Landing and Langdale existing developments now comprise a  continuous urban area Tstretch-  ing from Gibsons to Langdale.  .The permanent population has  Of the esjSmated 1,075 1975  population, $bout 7^0; {or 375  homes) are ����ryed with water  from local s^temisarici tlie -Remaining 325 ��� or awujt 100  hoiries rely on theiir Tc^wn ire-  sources.

Unfortunately -  scone  of  the  100  homes   are  hligh aibove sea level and thiua  in the second service pressure  zone. In the study area there  is no waterworks to serve the  second service   pressure   zone  (except in Langdale).  FUTURE DEVELOPMENT  The study area is not suitable   for   agriculture  and because of its proximity to Gibsons  and the Langdale Ferry  Terminal, as well as the excellent view afforded by the hillside,  is  possibly  one   of  the  1975 (Est.)  500  225  200  150  1075  prime residential areas on the  Sunshine Coast.  If the 1,000 acres are developed for residential use at 10  persons per gross acre, 10,000  people would ultimately live in  the area.  The rate at which the population would increase is open  to speculation. However, if past  ^��w|h   [trends   continue,   the  following is a  tion:  possible pro j ec-  Permanent  Population  1,075  1,500  2;000  4,000  10,000  Now  (1975)  5 year (1980)  10 year (1985)  20 year (1995)  Ultimately -  ' -  The rate could be accelerated! by numerous factors, one of  the more important beang the  provision   of   adequate  water  and sewer services.  5 to 25 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Progress is reported for Gibsons sewers as council arranges that tenders be called.

Canada was about 165 pounds  and is expected to increase  slightly in 1974. This riiakes  the potato one of the most important commodities in the  Canadian diet.  Food Prices Review Bo?ird  analysis indicates that the  main reasons. for declines in  potato prices are:  We import U.S. potatoes at  law prices until the Canadian  cropx-an be harvested. Potato  supplies in the U.S. have increased significantly and this  situation has exerted downward pressure ori prices. -  The price cycle for potatoes  is at its lowest .���:ppmt..at7:t_us  time of the year. Iri relation to  - domestic supply, potato prices  start to. rise slowly between  September and the following  February as Canadian potato  supplies are exhausted. In relation to imported supplies,  U.S. potatoes arrive on the  Canadian market during the  spring at high prices which  start declining towards midsummer as early crops in the  U.S. are harvested.  The consumer can expect  lower prices for potatoes to  continue in relation to the  price cycle linked to potato  supplies.  In recent years, rising farm  input costs for fertilizer, equipment, energy and labor, combined to make potatoes a relatively unattractive crop since  alternative crops comi-ianded1  higher market prices. The advent of increased financial returns to potato growers will  ultimately benefit the consumer.

Turkeys, gifts,  and toys to 128 less privileged  families oh the Sunshine Coast.  Once again the'.'Elves distributed rosebuds throughout  St. Mary's Hospital to each  patient. Flowerlaine Florists,  Gibsons, donated three lovely  Chrysanthemum plants which,  were placed in the Hospital  lounges. The Elves not being  granted access to the isolation  ward, gave the rosebud to the  nurse for the patient there. He  ' Elves:  was going to have none of that  and frantically pounded on the  window, shouting, "Tell ' the  Elves to come over here so I  can see them and join in on  the excitement too."  At one point, the Elves were  running disastrously low on  food items, when the Elphinstone Recreation Group came  to their rescue with a second  very large cash donation. The  Madiera Park Elementally  School students brought in  three large boxes, of food items  and an anonymous family donated 192 tins of Prem. So everything ended well, as there  was enough to complete tlie  hampers.  Besides misce-Taneous food  items, included in all the Ham-  pers were fruit juice, coffee,  meat, fteh, jam, milk, bread,  cranberries, pickles, soup, vegetables, fruit, candy, nuts,  Christmas pudding, Christmas  cake, turkey and gifts and toys.  These totalled in.all, 3915 food  items and 673 gifts and toys.  The Gibsons Firemen donated  134 of the toys.  Besides the. large Elsies  Club membership contributions  donations of cas& and food  were received from Roberts  Creek Royal Canadian Legion,  Gibsons Lions Club, Simpson-  Sears, Independent Order of  Foresters, Gibsons Building  Supplies, Kens' Lucky Dollar  Store.

Deliveries were made from  Port Mellon all the way  through to Pender Harbour  and across the water to Storm  Bay.  The Elves operate by each  member donating one penny  for each day of the year and  one food item for each month  of the year. The handiful of  Elves that did the work making up the hampers were  bruised, stiff and tired but  very happy concerning the tremendous success of the project.  A delightful Christmas program, reminiscent of Christmas  concerts of earlier days, under  the direction of David Foub-  ister and his Sunday school  staff, was presented by the  children of Bethel Baptist Sunday School, Secheilt. The Pioneer Girls had a part in the program, too.  Come to the Saviour, was  the theme of the program with  Diana Peters as narrator. The  prograim 'was in six parts ���  prophets tell of His coming,  His coming, the shepherds  come, the Wise men come,  others have come, we must  come.

Feedback wanted says mayor  Mayor Larry Labonte at  Monday night's statutory council meeting said he would like  to see more feedback from the  public.  Referring to some of council's achievements he said 1974  was generally a good year except for the fact that "we did  not receive too much feed  back."  "I would like people to come  cto the village office and give  us some constructive criticism  to help guide us through the  many programs."  The mayor cited the expansion of sewage facilities, water facility improvements, park  improvements, commu n i t y  pilanning, and the building of  the museum building as some  of council's major achieve  ments.

For all  who stayed, it proved a demanding experience, similar to  and yet more extreme than seeing Last Year in Marienibad or  The Discreet Charm of the  Bourgeoisie.  ThematicaHy,. the filonoi wlas a  stunning Biblical allegory,  somewhat akin to a Christianized Satyricon in the guise of a  western. The violence, although  often shocking, was so far removed from anything more  than a caricature that I could  not take it seriously enough to  be offended or even unduly  disturbed by it.  For me, it was simply one;;  of the film's many passages in- 7.  to the rather murky realm of  the surreal. Bad the film been  here for longer than a single  engagement, I would certainly have seen it again.  Coincidentally, the first Film  Society presentation in 1975,  like the last of 1974 is also a  film classified by the Director  of Motion Pictures as Restricted. Belle du Jour is not so  classified because of any violence or sex, but rather because of the subject matter,  the essence of which is a housewife's engaigement in the oldest profession on _ part-time  basis for some extra spending  money.  Like nearly all of the Film  Society's presentations, 'Belle  du Jour is not at all suitable  for children. It is an amusin'g  fiiim of great charm which Elliot Stein in Sight and Sound  called "a masterpiece, technically Bunuel's most accomplish  ed free-fldiwing work . ..������;.. the  many-faceted and jperfect^^ Golden Bowll whidh crowns 7a life's  work." -  Please note this fillh will be  playing January 8 (tonight).

Replying to last issue's letter from Dr. J. P. Perry DVMi,  the school board writes:  Dear Dr. Perry:  Mrs. Laibonte has passed me  your letter of Dec. 21, for reply; I regret that you felt it  necessary to circularize it in  the press before finding out  what the true facts of the  board's position are  It is neither fair nor correct  to state, as you did, "If the  bus management had reported  the incident to the school authorities, the matter would have  been   ignored  or  lost  in red  tape."  The facts are as follows. The  board, in consultation with the  bus contractor and the school  principals, amended their discipline   policy  in   Optober   to  provide that if a student misbehaves on. a bus on the way  home, the driver MOSfT take  the student to his home stop,  and there has the authority to  tell that student that his bus  ridinig 7 privileges   have   been  suspended until the principal  has reviewed the case and formally established an appropriate punishment.  .    This  was the authority requested by the drivers via their  employer,  it   was   granted   to  them by the board, and naturally the board expects them to  abide by it; al the teeth needed  are   there  in   policy.  The  board's complaint was not at  the enforcement of discipline,  but   that  the   method  of  enforcement was contrary to the  provisions of mutually agreed  policy. A deal is supposed to  be a deal.  It is unacceptable to the  boaTCl, and I think parents  would agree, that a student be  left to hitch hike home. We  have an obligation to take them  home, having done that, the  driver can say, "You don't  ride this bus again until the  school principal says so." Surely that is a responsible way  to exercise authority. The  board and staff will support to  the fullest any driver who does  it that way, and will criticize  any driver who does it any  other way.  ���R.

Horoscope for the next week  (By TRENT VARRO) >  ARIES - March 21 to April 20  There's an excellent chance  that you wMl achieve something that you have always  wanted to do, but never "quite  made it." Your solar chart is  very good with much emphasis  on "knowledge."  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  Some "emotional depression"  may be bothering you slightly  during the next week, but the  position of your ruling planet,  will pull you out of this very  quickly. Y.  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  It's pretty hard to "generalize"  in the Gemini chart right now,  as the actual time of your birth  wiia govern many Gemini persons in widely, different ways.  But on the whole, the picture  looks VERY promising.  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  An excellent time to get 'loose  ends" cleared up and everything put in order. The "storm"  that has been in Cancer, has  now "icleared-up" to do. .*  LEO - July 23 to August 23  Domestic matters are highlighted at this time. Things  might seem ��� to be upset, but  this "upsetting" is not, that  bad. You have much to gain by  "clearing a(way the weeds." Y.  VIRGO - Aug. 24 to Sept. 22  Astroibgically, everything is  just about as.perfect as it could  be for the sign of Virgo. Oldier  persons should be enjoying ja  tranquility as never before,  while younger :folk have a  "world of achievement" ahead!  LIBRA - Sept. 23 to October 23  The adverse aspects in your  life have left your solar sign.  . Now, is the time to plan carefully for your future. The seeds  you sotw now, will harvest a  rich.reward in three years.  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  Be cautious in traffic or travel  of any kind. > TFire and water  may also present some problems. Otherwise, your solar  chart is extremely good. Much  can be accomplished this week  if you try a little harder.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 Dec 21  Astroloigically, there's' every  reason, to believe that Sagittarius persons will be involved  in some way or another in a  deal regarding real' estate. Ev-  eryfthin'g's in your favor.  CAPRICORN - Dec 22 - Jan. 22  Social matters should receive  a big "boost" in the lives of  Capricorn persons this week.  The "tension" that has been  surrounding your sign since  the first of the.year is gone!  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 - Feb. 18  Handle all business matters  with "kid gloves" at the present time. Nothing is essentially  really wrong, but you might  say exactly the wrong thing at  the wrong time. This will clear  away shortly.  PISCES - Feb. 19 - March 20  Your ability to cope with practically any situation is heightened at this time.^ In factj your  wisdom and foresighft rigjhit  now, may amaze those persons  with whom you are in daily  contact.

Building inspector F. Reyburn told the board that the  Grauer property is contravening regional district zoning bylaws.  He  said there  are  two  visible residential occupancies  while the C-II permits only  one dwelling.  Reyburn said that four previous stop work orders have  been posted and each time removed without authorization.  Another stop work order was  posted Dec. 18 and "I was advised by a person present, in  no uncertain terms, where to  shove this notice."  Reyburn - stated, that the  Grauer property had^ been a  continual source of complaints.

Hydro customers who:  1. are on non-residential rates, and  2. were not affected by the rate increases announced last July.  WHY:  Higher interest, labour and material costs have forced B.C. Hydro to increase  electric rates for all categories of customers. When new rates were announced in  .July, most non-residential customers were not affected because their rates were  still under review. This review has now been completed. w  In 1962, a single rate was established for all residential customers served from  Hydro's integrated transmission system. The latest changes basically establish a  single rate for 12 existing non-residential categories.  HOW MUCH:  About 100,000 customers will be affected by the changes. The overall average  increase in rates for these customers is approximately 18%. Some customers such  as small stores and common use in apartment blocks will receive increases less  than 18%.  Customers experiencing the larger increases are customers using larger volumes  of electricity who have been purchasing these larger volumes at lower rates.  RATES:  Set out below is the rate (1220-applicable only in Zone I) which will apply to  approximately 80,000 of the non-residential customers whose electric load normally falls below 35 kilowatts.  Rate:  For a period of two months:  ��� First     200 kwh per period <_  Next  1800 kwh per period <2  Next 12000 kwh per period <��  All additional kwh per period  4.77c per kwh  3.27c per kwh  2.37c per kwh  11.32c per kwh  Minimum Charge:   Seven dollars and fifty cents ($7.50) for a period of two months.  Information about the new rates for other customers is available at Hydro's district offices.  WHEN:  All rate changes (except for irrigation customers) will become effective with the first  full billing period after December 31,1974. For example, a customer billed on a bimonthly basis will first see an adjustment on the March or April 1975 bill. The new  rate for irrigation customers will be effective in March 1975.  B.C.

Wlhen cooking for two, planning your menus is very important to ensure that food is  purchased in the quantity needed to avoid, leftovers or wlaste.  Unless you are big vegetable  eaters, it might be preferable  <td buy frozen produce to eliminate the leftover problem.  'Tttiere is however no advantage  in buying small roasts. They  tend to dry out and shrink  more than larger roasts when,  cooked. Instead, buy a larger  roast and plan to freeze the  rest for later use or serve it in  a casserole. Leftover sliced,  beef is . always delicious in  sandwiches for lunches.  When a longer preparation  time is needed for a dish such  as meat loaf or meatballs, buy  a large amount of ground meat  and portion it into individual  meat loaves, meat balls or (ham-  burg patties. Freeze them in  packaes  of  two-serving sizes.  Cooking for two can be. an  enriching experience. It can allow one to try out many different recipes and even prepare  more exotic foods. Aithouigh  the two following recipes, Balby  Beefies and Peach Trifle do  not have the "grand gourmet  touch", they are very tasteful  and can become faithful stand-  bys for an informal meal.

Reyburn, commenting on the fact that some Sunshine Coast residents are b_an  tantiy breaking the Regional  boaird's bylaws, says that the  usual $25 fine is not a deterrent.  At the last board meeting  several cases -were noted wttiere  a bylaw has been violated and  little is being done to rectify  Phone free  for seniors  The Sunshine Coast Resource Society 'has given approval to its senior services  (committee to start a> telephone  service to senior, and handicapped citizens to be known as  a Telephone Tree.  Calls will be made on a regular basis to keep in contact  with people who live on their  own and arrangements made in  advance concerning w (h a t  should be done in emergencies.  The seipvice will be provided  free of charge. Ladies Auxiliary to Branch 109,' Royal Can  adian Legion, has volunteered  to pay for the installation and  phone charges.  The Telephone Tree offices  will be in the basement of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  until the area has on information center.  This service is available to  everyone from Port Mellon to  Pender Barbour. For further  information contact Louise  Hume at the senior "services office at 886-7415 from 9 a.m. to  4 p.m.  the  situation. 7  "We can take them to court  and they will pay a $25 or $50-  fine," Reyburn said. He noted  the municipality of Delta is  tasking the courts to impose  stiffer fines than $26 on those  who persist on breaking the  bylaws.  The Regional Board has been  reluctant.to prosecute offenders in some oases because the  legal fees, which would ultimately fall upon the taxpayer,  would be excessive.  Former director Harry Almond told the board the bylaw��  are a waste of time. Whafs the  use of having a bylaw?  Discussion on the issue of  byiarw violations arose from a  complaint regarding property  on Hanbury Road in Roberts  Creek owned by Arthur Shaiw.  The property, which violates  an untidy premises bylaw, was  earlier visited by Director Jim  Ironside and found "in a terrible state." Shaw has been  repeatedly asked by the board  and the department of highways to clean up his property.  "Hand it over to the solicitor and tell him to prosecute,"  Chairman West recommended.
