Array Provincial Library,  Victoria:�� B�� C.  Tlie Sunshine  Printed and iPublis__ed at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,      Nuiriber 6, February 12, 1975.  ~i  Area over governed  <     -V -7  Y ;^*y^  Minister of Murdicipal Affairs James Larimer feels the  Sunshine Coast is vastly over-  governed.  Lbrimer met with Regional  Board chairman Frank West,  Sedhelt Mayor Harold Nelson,  and Gibsons Aidermari Stuart  Mfetcalfe' on? Jan. 29 to discuss  Gibsons, proposed, plan for expansion:   rav*' ..'��� '"/  Chairman West told the Regional Board Thursday that  the minister was probably being a little facetious when he  stated that 50 % of the population within the Regonal District held an elected office in  one, form or another..-...-  "I hotly denied this fact,"  West. said, "the figure is only  West said that Gibsons expansion plan is a substantial  suggestion for change and it  has niade the Regional Board  aiware of what direction local  government should take in the  next 25 years, -  ' West told the board Lorimer  does not intend to impose any  thing oh the residents of the  S_nshin_ Coast without consulting them through a plebiscite first. - ���. _ Y  "If the Gibsons plan is the  beat wle can do, we will carry  on with it. But if a large majority wants something else,  fine,"  Although West did say that  the boards' first reaction to the  expansion plan was one of  "extreme, apprehension" because of tlie secrecy involved^  he expressed confidence that  Gibsons council will bring all  the information out in the  open.  " ;"l was highly satisfied with  the meeting arid I feel Mr.  Metcalfe and-Mr. Nelson feel  satisfied with the wjay the matter was approached," West  said  The Regional Board' chairman also said Lorimer felt the  overall planning of the area  was upperinost and that the  Regional Board was a "gutless, powerless instrument."  The minister did, however, tray  he was appreciative of the  functioning   of   the   Regional  Board as a whole.  Lorimer stressed that it was  up to all elected representatives to work together and decide what kand of government  is most suitable for the Sunshine Coast. He said that the  department of municipal affairs would be ready to help  and that the Director of Miinii  cipalities Chris Woodward  would be available for committee meetings to provide  guidance and information on  finances and structures should  the area decide to go in the  direction of a district municipality.  West said that the first step  would be to arrange for a  meeting with local politicians  and decide what kind of government is best for the area  not only for today, but for the  future. West told the board  that the pressure from Varicou-  ver is on and that the population of the area may be 20,000  in five years.  West said that a brief will  be sent to Lorimer when communities have decided what  kind of government they want.  Fire destroys frailer  Regional board members  SlYe.Y0Ver  Members of the Regional  District- board' are extremely  apprehensive of the future of  the Regional District and are  concerned over the stated in-'  tenitions of orie of the member  municipalities  (Gibsons).  This concern arises from  Gibsons' proposal for expansion of village boundaries north  wiard to Langdale and the inclusion of Port Mellon as a  supporting tax base.  This was revealed at last  Thursday night's regular meeting of the Regional Board. A  letter sent to Hon. James Lorimer, provincial municipal minister, dated Jan. 31 was signed  by the six rural board members.    ''.  '  Board members regarded the  information supplied; them so  far as being scanty and that  statements made^ by Mayor  Larry Labonte of Gibsons via  the press have been devoid Of  irtformation "making us extremely apprehensive about the  future of the Regional District."  The letter argued that it is  contrary to the conioept of regional    government   for    one  T8-^- A  member to attempt a unilateral  change without consulting or  advising other members.  The Regional Board would  lose about 20 percent of its tax  base if it lost Port Mellon.  The board in its letter applied for help and asked, for  an \authoritaitive * statement  that the minister would, not  permit any Changes in the1 Regional structure until all the  facts and plans are fully disclosed,^ analyzed and the cost-  benefit factors are fully evaluated by his department and  the Regional District.  The letter maintained that  Gibsons apparently does not  intend to make its pertinent  data available so the board  sought all material on hand  <with the department be made  available to the board.  The letter signed- by Tom  QPenson ({Pender Harbour), Peter Hoemberg (Halfmoon Bay),  Jim Frizzell (Selma Park),  Jam es Ironside (Roberts  Creek), Chairman Frank West  (Gower Point) and John Mc-  ..evin,   (Langdale).  The two village directors  were not signatories.  Concluding the letter to the  A Roberts Creek fire early  Monday afternoon caused  about $30,000 damage to a  trailer and built-on cabana belonging to Elaine McLean of  ^Lockyer Road.  ^ The fire which totally des-  '{troyed the structure was caused by a defective propane stove  f Roberts Creek fire chief Glen  JKraus said a leak in the gas  pipe caused a small explosion'  under the kitchen sirik which  subsequently started the ,bla_e.

The initial  pihone call that set off the  alanm failed to give the loca-  tioh of the fire. A later' call  from a person who saw smoke  coming from some trees indicated! the location.  It was reported that a te$e->  phone operator had given "roe  wrong number to the persbn  who turned in the alarm which  further.delayed the response.  7 The correct numiber for the  Rdberts Creek fire department  is. -885-3222.

We shall study such other  forms to establish the most desirable wiay to provide the required services to the greatest  possible benefit of our people  in the JRegidnY  '^H^wever we would be less  than honest, if we did not  state right here that we still  believe that a regional district  perhaps changed in some respects,will be a very suitable  f ramejwork for many more  years to pro vide these services  commensurate with the present state of growth, development, geographical realities  and last,- hot least, with the  wishes of the vast majority of  our residents. We think that  many of the present dif-ficul-  ties are only the result of some  of our member municipalities  not fully understanding the  regional government concept  and therefore unable to take  the best advantage of this facility."  ,000 in buildings  Twice as many homes were  built during 1974 in the northern half, Regional District  than were built in the southern half, Regional Distjriict  (building inspector Fred Reyburn reported to the board at  last wleek's meeting.  The roundup for the year  included a noticeable trend to  much! larger arid more valued  residential construction according to Mr.  Reyburn's report.  The 1974 figures for the Regional District areas follow:  iVrea A ���r- Pender Harbour  $2^251.000 (67 hqmtes).  Area B ���^ Halfmoon Bay  $l,_;26,50O (52 homes).  Area C ��� Selma Park  $l,6-6,_00   (40 homes).  Afea D ��� Roberts Creek  $1,085,500. (32 homes).  TArea E ��� Gower Point  $1,008,000 (23 homes).  Area F ��� Langdale  $1,29(_.,000 (32 homes).  Areas A-B-C acounted for  $5,273,700 (159 homes) and  Areas D-E-F $3,385,500 (8-7  homes).  /This year's Regional Board  total amounts to $9,109,200  compared to the 1973 total of  $6,887,200.  Including Gibsons ; and iSechelt building figures the overall total amounts to $14,003,200.  The seven year total during  the life of the Regional Board  airioiunts to $30,846,932. This  does not inlclude construction  figures for the villages, over  the same period. A possible  $5,000,000 could be added covering construction in the two  villages over the same .period.  Piles of letters received  region  expansion  By BRIAN POWER  (In the Feb. 5 issue; of the  Ladysihith Chronicle)  In a rare'show of unanimity,  the councils of North Cow-  idhan and Duncan agreed at a  joint council meeting Monday  to ask the provincial govern  ment to study various ways of  reshajpdng governments and  political boundaries of the two  municipalities.  And if the government does  suggest possible alternatives  voters in both areas could decide to create and shape new  municipalities and local govern  ments that would better reflect  the political and geographical  realities of the day.  The study could have wide-  ranging effects on Chemainus  and Croft on.  In fact the study could suggest alternatives as extensive  as eventually changing the  boundaries and < status of Salt-  air and I^adlysmith to form, for  exjample, a regional government.  On the surface the meeting  was a positive brie. There was  n;o -neriiber from either council  that didn't want to see the  amalgamation studjy"   proceed..  But undei^a^,Tthe old problem of how'to divide up the  taxation revenue from the industrial north of North Coiw-  i<jhan surfaced again. What  Alderman Denis Hogan called  the "golden egg"- the industrial tax base from the Ohemain  us Crofton area- provides 50  percent of North Cojwichari's  'revenue, arid several people  predicted difficulties in working out haw to jshare that revenue,  But councils steered clear of  setting .any guidelines when  asking the municipal affairs  department to do the study.  Their only request to the  governanent is that its com-  mitee recommeridatiocs be  turned into political fact only  if the voters approve.  The members from both,  councils followed Duncan, May-  . or Ken' Paskin's advice for an  outside study by the provincial  government, after the mayor  urged a body with "no axe to  grind" look at the question.  (Continued on Page 10)  MLA Don Lockstead said  Tuesday that he ha�� received  a "pile of letters" from people  who oppose the Sechelt site  for tihe proposed junior secondary school. ,-   ' '  "If   I   lived in   the   area  I.  would certainly go to the meeting-rand sjpeak out against the  iSechelt site," Lockstead said.  The school bbaa^i has accepted lots nuimbered 1 and 2 near  the Sunshine Coast arena as  their dhoiice for the new school  and has applied to Victoria for  title to the Crown land,  ���Some Sunshne Coast residents, especially in the Davis  Bay and Roberts Creek area,  have protested the. site because  it is considered too far ajway  from the center of population.  Lockstead said he looked at  the alternate site in S'elma  Park and didn't consider the  elevation problem too serious.  LIONS 400 WINNER  Hi-Bailer   SJalvaige   is   last  week's winner of $100 in the  Lions   400  draw.   Ticket   was  drawn by Beryl Kern.  The Regional Board earlier  informed the school board that  it is against policy to supply  water above 200 - feet elevation but a request from a pubr  lie body such as the school  board may be accommodated1.  Lockstead said if enough  pscple protested the Selchelt  site the department of education would revie'w the school  board's choice.  Grant approved  Coast-Chilcotin member of  parliament Jack Pearsall announces the approval of a  $1,100 grant to the Elphinstone  New Horizons group in Roberts  Creek under the New Horizons  Program of the federal department of National Health and  Welfare.  This grant will help the  group to further expand its  program Mr. Pearsall said.  Activities such as shuiffleboard  and square dancing will add  variety and enicourage wider  participation.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons/ B.C  Slipshod education!  The outcry from the University of British Columbia's English Department about the freshman's ignorance of English composition has echoes in branches of  the education world.  A multi-page leaflet from the Centre of Continuing  Education reveals some weaknesses in. language besides  those of students; for example, on page 3 the blurb giving  details of a summer class "Experiencing British Columbia's Mighty Rivers" has this: "Students are asked to  bring their own sleeping bag [si." Fortunately, registration is strictly limited.And the well-known Dr. Csaipo  who has addressed audiences here in the past commits  the same mayhem with the language in her booklet "Operation Step-up" when she states "Each tutor was responsible for involving their -his] pupil or pupils in ..."  These careless and becoming references of pronouns  remind one of the parade ground sergeant who shouted  at each fall in, "Deaye a space between each man!"  And from a manual produced by the UBC Department of Commerce:  "When a person purports to contract as an agent for  a principal, he is considered to represent ��� by the parties with whom he is dealing that he has the authority,  which he is purporting to exercise." Try that one, Department of English.  On the local scene we came across a little publication, "The Courier" which purports to be the news organ  of the Sechelt Teachers Association, and no doubt edited  with all due care. Despite that care we found these spellings: reciepts, reimbersement, superinitend'ant, fourth-  coming and again ".. .qualifications of a superintendant."  And these gems of composition: "The In-service committee is also tempting to organize one remaining In-  service day. Y." and another "How can we get more women involved in the committee meetings at each school  afternoons, weekend meetings, continue monthly evening  meetings?" (No doubt a Women's Lib code message.)  and for an utterly ponderous style get lost in this:  "The afternoon will be devoted to exploring models  of consensus whereby schools with a diversity of the  philosophical opinion may arrive at an objective oriented "wide philosophy acceptable to teachers parents, and  students." (This will help them teach the 3 Rs.)  Believe it or not!  Without stretching the imagination too for some of  the Wednesday night Sechelt council meetings could  easily rival Dr. Bundola's Pandemonium show.  Picture one alderman chatting to a member of the.  public. Two others are engaged in 'a heated tete-a-tete  which is actually their fortnightly continuation of a personal vendetta. Another alderman adds color commentary to any conversation going. The mayor sits quietly  back in his large black chair and tries to take in everything and a motion on the floor is lost forever amidst  the hub-bub.  It is appreciated that the job of alderman isnt quite  as easy as it looks. There is a lot of work involved. The  fact that nominees aren't exactly breaking down village  office doors at election time verifies that.  But let's try for a little control and efficiency. It  was a Sechelt alderman who stated last week that politicians must not only BE honest but they must SEEM  honest.  If the efficiency of Sechelt council isn't questioned,  then at least let's do something about the appearance.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  The sldhool board seeks  RCMP help for the elementary  school patrols at the school.

Plans for Gibsons new fire  hall have been placed before  council.  Expert expounds on oysters  (By a Fisheries Expert)  Oysters are not especially a  brain food, nor are they an  amatory food, although there  is an old persistent myth about  this. Today, they are valued  for their ease of digestion both  raw and cooked, and because-  they are an excellent source  of protein, vitamins and minerals. Minerals are a strong  point of oysters. They provide  iron, copper, iodine, magnesium, phosphorus, and calcium  in useful amounts. '  Happily for the weight  watchers, oysters are low in  calories. Although sometimes  described as fat, they never  grow fat in the greasy sense.  They store their food in the  form of easily digested glycogen or animal starch and not  in the form of oils. A fat oyster is merely a plump    one.  This shellfish feeds and  grows plump by filtering it,s  food in the form of minute  organisfais. As with other marine animals, its characteristics flavor, and growth are  determined by its habitat, the  food it takes in, and the temperature of the water.  Warm water speeds an oy-  sterls growth and so southern-  groiwn oysters reach marketable size more quickly than  northern ones. In Canadian  waters, the oyster growing season is short.  In this country, the bulk of  the oysters sold are planted  from nurtured stock on underwater farms where they are  carefully reared to marketable  size. Two types are grown,  the Atlantic oyster of the Mar-  times and the Pacific oyster  of British Columbia. Of the  two crops, the Pacific one is  the larger, although the Atlantic species cotmmands a  higher price.  Three species of oysters  grow in British Columbia  (Waters- the small native oyster, the eastern oyster, and  the Pacific oyster. Of these,  only the Pacific oyster is of  commercial importance. This  oyster was imported from  Japan and became established  in the province the early  1930s .  The Pacific oyster is hardy  and can withstand extremes  of temperature and water  salinity. Under favorable conditions, it. growls rapidly and  has been known to reach the  marketable size of from four  to six inches in less than two  years. If permitted, it may  groiw to a length of a foot or  more. ,  Fotr distribution, Pacific  oysters are usually shucked  since their shells are brittle.  Unlike the eastern oyster, because of their larger size, few  go to the half-shell trade. Af  ter   shucking1,   these   oysters  are packed in gallon cans and  cardboard    cartons    for    the  trade. They must be kept refrigerated at all times.  When buying shucked oysters, eye them critically. They  should have a natural, creamy  color and clear liquid. There  Should not be more than 10  per cent liquid by .weight  when purchased in a container  Avoid , oysters with an excess  amount of liquor because this  indicates poor quality and  careless handling.  (Shucked Pacific oysters are  entirely edible. The larger ones  may be breaded and "fried  whole, or they may be cut up  and used in stews, scallops and  other dishes. Incidentally, doh,t ���<  wash shucked oysters or you,ll  remove some of the good fl_i-  vor.    Simply    examine    them  carefully    and    remove    any   .  shell particles- which may'be "  present.  Store them, covered,  in the refrigerator until ready  for use  and not longer   than  four days.  Pacific oysters are cooked  before being eaten and Westerners have discovered their  own favorite (ways of preparing them.

Grant MdCraidy, a cabinet  maker, told council last Wednes  day   that   "some   white   men  were oji the warpath along  Porpoise Bay Road" because  rumours had been going a-  round that rezoning of the  area would curtail or eliminate  certain businesses.  McCrady said he was worried that the "ground would  be pulled out" as soon as the  netw zoning b(ylatw came in  effect. He said that if his property was zoned to residential  he would never be able to expand1 hisv business.  Alderman Norm Watson tbld  the concerned cabinet maker  that it was a possibility his  land was rezoned but not like  ly. He said that the proposed  bylaw was not public information yet because there were  still a few minor changes to  make."  The new zoning bylaw- will  (be presented at a special meet  ing this week and then go to  public hearings.

The library receives about  250 books every three months  on a provincial library rotation scheme.  "What is the logic of that?"  a Sechelt alderman, asked  when the subject was brought  up at last Wednesday's council  meeting.  Alderman Norm Watson as  sured council that.there was  no logic in certain provincial  government offices, adding  that the decision was "a real  blow." '  The library is presently engaged in establishing a library  board and local and.provincial  governments have been approached for operating and  book purchase grants.  Ada Dafwe, a spokesman for  the library,, indicated that the  provinlcial government was  undergoirtg an austerity program. She said Sechelt's application for a grant had earlier been denied and Port Mellon library wias having similar  exjperienioes regarding the  curtailment of book loans.  Mrs. Dawe said negotiations  are continuing.  Merchants have complaint  Sechelt merchants are not  happy with the returns on their  business tax dollars.  Morgan Thompson, represent  ing the Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce told council last  Wednesday thiat merchants  paid $3,400 in business tax last  year; and that not enough of  this money is coming back in  sundry services.  Thompson said that in the  past he has personally solicited  money from menchiansts floor  Christmas lighting and in the  future "I am not going to put  myself out as a collection agent  when this mutch money is collected from business licenses."  He said that the chamber of  commerce had also applied to  the village for money for tour  ism but "iwe were turned down  flat."  Thompson asked council to  re-examine the license fee by  law because it was unfair to  merchants that a truck can  come from Vancouver and' set  up business for a $25 or $50  fee while other businesses1 had  to spend $10,000 on fixtures  alone  Thompson was referring to  a rented truck that wias set up  as a portable clothing store in  front of the Bank of Montreal  last month.  The chamber of icommerce  representative said biisiness-  men had been adamant about  these issue�� but "it can't be  that     desperately     important  because I am. only one here.  Thompson earlier told council  he had not come as an official  of the chamber but only as a  concerned citizen to get council's reactions to a chamber of  commerce letter expressing  concern over business license  isues.  Alderman Norm Watson  suggested' that most of the  businessmen "blew; off steam  in the coffee shop."  Cleanup needed?  Cleaning out the medicine  chest at frequent intervals is  an important safety measure  advises Consumers' Association of Canada. Leftover med  icines may be used at a later  date with a doctor's consent  but some medicines lose their  potency within as short a per  iod as tJwo weeks. Lotions and  ointments and most non-pre-  sciption tablets, if stored in a  dry, cool place, will remain  potent for a year. Liquid med  icines, except liquid antibiotics  good for two weeks if reffiger  ated- can also usually be kept  for a year. Most antiseptics  should be discarded' after six  months.

False pretense  charge Heard  Eighteen year-old Vaughan  Tardiff, a former Gibsons man,  was found guilty of false pre-  tences in provincial court last  7 Thursday after cashing a $80  cheque at Sechelt Supermarket  .-. -August ZOyy Y  Crown ^Prosecutor Hugh ilc-  Gallum explained Tardiff  ��� wrote a cheque for $30 at the  ISechelt store andY came back  later to cancel it then write another for $80 knowing that his  bank account contained insufficient f urids.  Ronald Johnstone, manager  of Sechelt Supermarket Ltd.  testified Tardiff asked to cash  a small cheque. Johnstone said  Tardiff came back later and  asked to cash another cheque.  "At the time I didn't: know  it was for $80, otherwise I  wouldn't have told him it was  OK," Johnstone told the court.  He subsequently phoned the  bank and discovered Tardiff s  account had no money in it.  The accused told Judge J. S.  P. Johnson he believed there  was money in the account when  he wrote the cheques. Taw-fiff  explained hie had >heenworking in Edmonton and when he  had to leave there immediately  to come to Seohelt his father  promised to send the cheque  for, $300 6_r_atly to the bank.  When questioned Tardiff said  he didn't remember what  month it was he came back to^,  Sedhelt and that his father had  delayed in sending the money.  It was also revealed that  Tardiff . had written two or  three other cheques to1another  Sechelt business. Tardiff who  has a previous record of breaking and entering and theft, and  impaired driving will be sentenced March 6 pending a presentence report.  17,000 nurses  The number of registered  nurses in British Columbia, has  passed the 17,000 mark for the  first time, according to the  Registered Nurses'7 Association  ;ofTB.C.Y'Y'Y Y:-'7:7;...'"��� Y.T;T ���'��� ���  T?he group's membership totalled 17,139 at Dec; 31, an increase^ of 11.& percent over the  19737year^end:7figure of 715,322.7  Of the7new; total; 1,892 -were ^  ��� first-time-registrants in B.G'^  AllYregistered nurses in the  province are members of the  association, which is the profession's   governing   body   in  b.c.

Roberts Creek Fire Chief  Glen Kraus said that pulleys  on the special over__ead door  Were broken, and several concrete bloiciks next to the door  were cracked.  The  chief said he believed  the incident happened accidentally when someone turned  around in the parking lot  which was covered in snow at  the time.  A contractor who inspected  the building said one of the  wooden beams would have to  be replaced because thiere is  danger of the roof coming  down.  Broken glass from a red tail-  light and chips of blue paint  were found near the building.

Authorized RCA Dealer  88_-7B33 Gibsons  5      Coast News Feb. 12, 1975  Flood control  bylaw disputed  . iSome Davis Bay residents  are concerned that recent provincial flood control legislation  and Regional Board 'planning  policy may cause their properties to decrease in value.'  In a letter to the Relgioria.  Board E. A. Cuylits Sr. expresses concern that his and  other houses in the neighborhood of Highway 101 and Whit  taker Road may be below the  levels iridicaited in a direicitive  issued by the Department of  Municipal Affairs dealing with  flood control requirettrients.  !Mr. Cuylits is concerned because those affected would not  be allowed to reconstruct a  house should it burn down. Alterations renovations or adding  on will also not be permitted.  The Flood Control act was  legislated last summer by the  provincial water resources department and will not allow  coristruSotion of a dwelling situated on a flood plain area  which is three meters above  the highest w|ater level.  Mr. Cuylits writes that- he  would,.'have to move if his  noted that one out of every  house burned down and his  land would be worthless. He  five houses, imdudiinig downtown Sechelt, would be affected by the restrictions.  Directors of the Regional  Board expressed the idea that  flood control is not a function  affecting construction of a  . home but subdivision only.  However; Regional Board planner Adrian Stott confirmed  that updating of regional planning bylaws would incorporate  flood plain restrictions.  Director for Sechelt, Norm  7 Watson, criticized the provincial government for the flood  control   legislation   as  "using  an elephant gun. to catch .fish."  The Regional Board will advise the water resources department of local problems and  suggest that contracts be en-  tered.into with people presently in '���������the flood plain airea to  release government agencies  from liability.

The Canadian income tax .  system relies on honest self-  assessment by taxpayers. The  "big stick im ihe cupboard'' is  rarely used unless a taxpayer  obviously faiil^ to comply with  the law.  Apart from the rather....  ominous statement that "it is  a serious ofifenice to make a  false return" which appears on  the tax return, the only specific penalty referred to on  the return is a penalty of five  ' per cent of the unpaid tax and:  Canadla Pension Plan contzdhu.-  '. tions for failure to file on the  due date of April 30.  The pe-xalties themselves  range from aimounts of $25 or  less up to substantial amounts  plus imprisonment according  to the nature of the offence.  As more and more taxpayers  are turning to other persons  for assistance in preparation  of returns, it should be noted  that the Inlcome Tax Act also  providtes for a broad range of  penalties covering offences by  third parties. ,  Any person preparing or assisting in the preparation of  an idividual's return for compensation is now required' to  discuss that fact on the face of  the return.  Revenue Canada has a special investigation division wihose  main responsibility it is to investigate suspected cases of tax  evasion. Any taxpayer confront  ed by the special division will  find) that sympathy at the  time is a rare commodity.

Hoehne said that his calcula  tions had made the increase  9% and! he felt that some directors may have voted for the  /bylaw because the smaller  figure did 7not seem exteessive.

The  walls are up and you cam see  a stairway leading to the upstairs viewing area.  'The cement blocks of the  main building cannot be laid  until there is no further threat  of frost. We were to have a  work party on the weekend of  Feb. 1 to cover the drain tile  and lay support�� for the piping  of the refrigeration system, but  the ground was frozen and  covered with snow. This work  party will be called again some,  time in the future I would  imagine. . '  I would like to remind those  of you who have not yet paid  your membership that we can  use the money. Everything we  do now costs money and it is  nice to have the funds in the  kitty when they are needed.  We will receive $22,500 from  the government shortly in part  payment of the government  grant of $50,000. It will go,a  long way toward getting the  waite up and the roof on.  For the new curlers dolwn  Sechelt way, here is some ma  terial on elementary skipping  strategy. A skip should study  his team. Get to know your  players strengths and weak-,  nesses. Most. inexperienced  curlers have a weak turn. Have  that player work on his shot  during practice or when you  can afford to waste a shot dur  ing: a gasme.  Wlhen a shot needs to be  made, give him the turn he is  most likely to make the shot  with. Most curlers also throw  takeouts better at certain  weights than at others. There  are two styles of skipping for  this situation. One school of  thought isays the skip sets the  broom an_ the player adjusts  his weight to suit. The second  school of thought says the skip  should adjust for each player.  For beginning curlers, it is  my contention that the skip  Should adjust the broom given  for each curler since they are  often not capable of varying  their weight enough to hit the  target when too little or too  much ice is given for their  particular best takeout weight.

M. Partridge, secretary.  The following has been sent  to Don Lockstead!, MLA, Victoria, B.C Dear Sir: Regarding  the proposed site at Porpoise  Bay of the Junior High School  I sincerely hope that more  thought will go into this than  did go into the choice of the  arena site. The center of population of the Sechelt Peninsula  is the Selma Park-Roberts  Creek area. Not only do you  have land available at Roberts  Creek but I believe there is  an alternative site at Selma  Park. Granted a booster pump  for water would be netcessary  but the cost is minimal when  convenience and other costs  are taken into consideration.  A plea for common sense.  Yours Truly, J. Pat Perry.

The Bears and I starring Plat  rick Wayne, Chief Dan George,  and Micheal Ansara, was film  ed in the beautiful rugged yril-  derness of BC by the studio  that pioneered the ���wilc-ife  film, a combination of fiction  and documentary footage based  on a book by Robert Franklin  Leslie.  My Name is Nobody is a new  mature comedy western starring Terence Hill and Henry  Fonda. Playing Sat. at 9 pjn.  and Sun-Mon at 8vp.m. this  film is a tongue in cheek spag  hetti western by prodiucer Ser  gio Leone which has plenty of  fcomedy and! action to satisfy  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  (BY-ELECTION)  NOTICE OF POLL  Public notice is hereby given to the electors of the municipality aforesaid  ���that a poll has become necessary at the by-election now pending, and that  I have granted such poll; and, further, that the persons duly nominated as  candidates at the said election, for whom only votes will be received, are:  One (1) ��� Alderman ��� for the unexpired term ending.

Given under my hand this 3rd day of February, 1975  J.

RCMP reported Jenkins failed to negotiate a turn on Nor-  West Bay Road and was later  spotted driving on the wrong  side of the road. He was stopped on Cowrie Street in Sechelt and when taken to the  Sechelt detachment showed a  reading of 0.19 on the breathalizer.

By AIXAN CRANE  As the Film Scwaety's screening night is now Tuesday in>-  stead of Wednesdlay which coincided' with the publication  cflay for the local press, this  column will appear irregularly  and not weekly as it did before  Christmas.  As expected, The Devils  drew mixed reactions with  some people finding it quite  idisturbing and others thinking  it tremendous. Severaili people  noted the vaccination mark on  Grandier's wife's arm ahd the  untypically 17th century tan  divisions iwhere bikinis cut off  the sun.  Last weeks' Film Society  presentation The World of Apu  is virtually beyond criticism.  I thought it wais simply exquisite.  Among the films in the Twilight Theatre's regular program, Fantastic Planet, originally scheid_led for Film Society  presentation, was perhaps the  most interesting} although several people expressed disappointment in it. '  In watching a cartoon, I  doubt that it is possible completely to lose one's detachment to the extent where one  forgets that it is a cartoon*  but for me the often spell-binding and hypnotic quality of the  visuals and the remarkabd|y  well-executed animation made  this film well worth watching.  It is :a pity that the film received a Restricted rating from  the BJC. Director of Motion  -Picture Classification as the  draiwn nudity was quite innocuous and in keeping with the  story's Setting for otherwise  this filim would probably have  been greatly enjoyed by children.  Also in the Twilight Thea-  trefe  regular program  was  a  second^opportunity to isee Cfe-  Ibaret which drew very small  audiences when it played here  in 1973. Attendance for the rerun was not spectajcular either,  but many went to see this enjoyable film for a second or  third time. It is not a musical  at all any more than is The  Blue Angel to be screened next  Tuesday, Feb. 1_. in the Film  Society's program.     ';.-.;  Both are f-his depicting the  story of a cabaret .artist in  (pre-(war Germany, but The  Blue Angel features a German  cabaret singer (Marlene Die-  trilch) in the days before Nazism, while Cabaret is. about an  expatriate American cabaret  entertainer (Liza Minelii) as  the Nazi creed was beginning  to engulf the nation.  The following Tuesdlay, Feb.  18, is devoted to a screening  of the original 1934 Of Human  Bondage with wonderful per-  ifofrmances from Bette Davis  and Leslie Howard in this, the  finest of the four filmed ver-  erset Maugham- novel. Another  sions. of the famous W. Som-  and perhaps the most famous  classic of the German cinema  is scheduled for the following  Tuesday, Feb. 25 when The  Cabinet of Dr. Caligari twill he  shown ina doubleibilling with  Rudolph Valentino's last film  Son of the Sheik.

According to Raskin, there  may not be two municipalities  throughout the (province with  as little in common.  The mayor noted North Cow  ichan contains 90 square miles,  a strong industrial tax base, a  good deal of agricultural land,  and the two communities of  Chemainus and the Duncan  area.  On.the other hand, Duncan  is a small area wit.li- _T_C~y  developed services and a large  commercial tax base, he point  ed out.  Paskin said he is -worried  about the duplication of services in the two municipalities.  He said, for example, that the  dbuble planning could eventually lead! to  "disaster."  Basking said Chemainus has  "an identity all its own" and  Ghemainus people would be  "reluctant to be part of Duncan."

Wolansky testified he noticed;  fieaudbdn's boat running in  (Seasipan ITo. 4 lease area. He  (watched Beaudoin through  field glasses from a point estimated about 500 yards away  and he "saw the log pop out  from) the boom."  Wolansky told the court that  the log Beaiudbin was towing  had the same blue marMngs,  a blue slash about a foot long  running lengthwise, as the  other logs in the boom in question.  Beaudoin's lalwyer, J. Taylor suggested Wolanskyrs  glasses may have been cloucjiy  and that a coneudferabie depth  perspective is lost Using telescopic lenses. Taylor claimed  that his client had 'hit the log  with 'his boat and turned  aroundl to dog it. 7  "It is obvious something  caused him to turn," Taylor  told Judge J. S. P. Johnson.  ' "He wouldn't be speeding  along in his boat and all of a  sudden stop h^aafi3^,:Me.y'^aSi^  the particular log in the boom  he wanted." Taylor added that  his client knew y^lan&ky'fe  boat and that he certain^  wouldn't steal a log with a policeman around.  Judge Johnson said he could;  not conclude exactly what, happened from the evidence given and because of the uncertainty he had to find the accused not guilty.  J. H. G.

Alderman  licensing does  not cover all  Seohelt     Alderman     Frank  Leitner told council Wednes- .  day night. that he was only  trying to be fair in pointing  out that certain businesses in  Sedhelt operate Without  licenses.  Alderman Leitner informed  council that trucks working  for the village are operating  without municipal plates and  the owner does not have a  business license to operate in  the village.  " Alderman Leitner named  two companies, A and W truck  ing and Irving Benner, who  lack either municipal plates  or  business licenses.  "They have been operating ^  like this for months," Leitner  said, "and that amounts to  quite a few- tax dollars." He  asked council why these companies were given village work  when they don't even have  the legal documents.  "We have an understanding,"  Alderman Norm Watson stated  He explained! that the village  had problems in the past obtaining equipment to do  emergency work because contractors had' prior rommitt-  ments with larger operations.  When YLeitnierYa^e^'Twfhy  Irvin Benner was getting all  the work when he didn't have  a contract with the Village he  was told that "the other company" was not prepared to  buy a grader unless a contract  with the village was entered  into.     ���  ^die_man Leitner insisted  that if one person had to have  a license to operate a business  in thevillage then^o did every  one else.  "I'm quite sure Alderman  Osborne^wasn't running a rack  et on this," Alderman Dennis  Sftiuttl^worth siaidYi  Ted Osborne, whOTwas defeated by Alderman; Leitner  in the last election, was chair  man of the roads and main-  tainance   committee.  ���������  Theatre  886-2827  Please note  change   of  Starting Times on  Satr, Feb. 15  Wed., Thurs., Fri.
