This can be described as the  important news from Monday  night's meetinig . of Gibsons  Voters Association in Gibsons  Elementally school library. Gib-  eons Mayor Larry Labonte said  Minister Hon.

MSiwce Mr. Pearsall was elected he has never been here  once ��� I would like to see him  here in the council chambers,"  Mayor Labonte stated at Tuesday night's council meeting.  The mayor said he had offered the MP his office whenever he comes to the area but  "I was told that if I wanted  to see him I had to go to Set-  chelt."  Council's charges arose from  the disappointment in not receiving a winter works project grant that would have  subsidized labor in the construction of the Gibsons curling rink on Highway 101.  In a letter to council, Jack  Pearsall states that the Minister of Finance, > John Turner  had indicated the deadline for  loan applications under the  winter capital projects fund  was Sept. 30; 1974.  The winter club's formal application was sent to Ottawa  after that date but Jack Copland/municipal clerk, suggested to council that this may.be  a bone of contention because  the club sent a notice of their  intention to apply to the former member of parliament  sometime last May.  Council realized there is probably no'hope now in obtaining money from this federal  fund but a letter will be sent  to Mr. Pearsall expressing the  grievances.

He urged the public to express its view either by writing  to council or to the minister.  "Let us know how you feel,"  he added.  When questioned as to whether council made the first approach, to the minister, he said  % taiat xouncil. did make^the ap-  ',:~pptfetch; because "it 'knew 'that  Minister Lorimer had something in mind���- some sort of  municipal readjustment in a  general way.  It was pointed out to the  audience that the provincial  municipal department ha d  made similar arrangements in  other parts of the province  ailaible, one a ten acre site on  the highiwtay near the theatre  and the other Brothers Memorial Park wihich is partially developed only.  He denied any desire to push  voters into anything and expressed' the view that we might  quite well reanain just as we  are.  Y As regards comment involving finances, some of wihich  were discussed at this meeting,  the Coast News intends to obtain the necesary information  and present it in more complete form if that is a possibility.  Financial aspects were presented by Aid. Hoehne with  the aid of charts showing possible tax probabilities in the ev  ent the proposal was acceptable to the minister and then  the public.  Mayor Labonte's closing remarks explained that Minister  Lorimer was looking into the  municipal feasibility for the  entire Sunshine Coast. There  was the possibility of a district  municipality all the way from  (Port Mellon to Sechelt, the  mayor said. There are three  parties involved, the Regional  Board, Gibsons and Sechelt  municipalities. The mayor reiterated that the Gibsons pro-  where they included an industrial area into an area largely  for taxation purposes and Gibsons area was similar to other  combined areas.  With more money to handle  tlhe municipality could obtain  more provincial grants to cover recreation, waterfront improvement and roads. It wtes  also pointed out that if the  expansion did go through council would become involved in  welfare, police and other things  that larger municipalities have  to maintain.  ALDERMAN KURT HOEHNE explains some of the  finances involved in Gibsons proposed expansion at a  public meetag Monday night.  Two or three times the mayor expressed the view that no  one knew what might happen.  We could be taken over by the  Regional Board or we might,,  have   a   district   intmicipaflity  from Gibsons to Port Mellon.  "We don't know, but the minister is looking over the situation," he said.  v  The mayor suggested the for-  miation of liaison groups, in the  area. There* would be further  meetings and it is quite possible Minister Lorimer might  y0it this area and express his  own views.  The mayor was unable.to offer a solution as to the method'  of  assessing  the  vote  which  might be taken. It would be up  to the ihinister, he said.  By ROB VAN BUITEN  Residents of the Sunshine  Coast who may be affected by  Gibsons council's proposed expansion had a chance to hurl  some verbal tomatoes at council Tuesday night.  One of the biggest concerns  at the puiblic meeting in Gibsons Elementary school library  was expressed by residents included in the phase1 II expansion, Langdale, Hopkins,  Soames, and Granthams, who  felt that council had not done  their public relations work  properly.  One of the questioners was  quite adamant about the idea  that Gibsons was Swallowing  up the outlying areas and she  asked Mayor Labonte "Couldn't we have been conulted  first?"  Another was quite concerned that the whole thing was  a "fait accompli", that council  had submitted the expansion  proposal and if Victoria said  OK that was enough to bury  any public opposition.  Mayor Lalbonte assured his  audience that the expansion  announcement and the public  meeting were intended to draw  public response and that all  parties concerned would have  a chance to communicate their  feelings to the minister of municipal affairs. He said that if  the residents of phase II were  definitely agiainst joining Gibsons, t<hen the expansion would  not happen.  Someone asked just how the  plebiscite would be set up ���  because the majority, population of Gibsons, if in favor of  expansion, could outvote the  minority of the outlying areas.  Mayor Labonte answered  that he didn't know at this  time whether the vote would  be separated according to area  or whether it would be a blanket vote over the whole area.  Another salient question reflecting  the  feelings  of many  people   was  What's  in  it for  me?  "I live in Hopkins,  we are  self-sufficient,   we  pay   lower  .water rates, and no one can  build in our area because it's  already built up. Why should I  have to subsidize Gibsons?"  Mayor Labonte said that  could happen because all rates  and taxes would be uniform  throughout the area, everybody would pay the present  Gibsons rates initially and it  would later be adjusted according to the budget and the amount of money spent in that  specific area.  Many residents also seemed  to be concerned over losing the  identity, the spirit, and the  close control of their own affairs that characterizes life in  a small area.  It was pointed out, for instance, that once a year Hopkins residents get together  with their water engineer and  set their own water rates according to what was needed  and how muah money was on  hand. "We set our rates and  not someone else," the man  told Mayor Labonte.  The Mayor answered that  they would have elected! representatives on council and that  he could be voted out of office  every two years if his constituents didn't like what he was  doing.  Near the end of the meeting  the atmosphere still seemed to  be one of skepticism. Several  people said that there were  some advantages to the expansion especially for Gflanthams,  which has a sewage system  that, will be taboo in eight or  nine years, and Langdale which  already has a high septic table.  "I can see some advantages  if we all operate together,"  said one man, "although governments have a habit of becoming too austere and operate  from the top down"  "How soon will the village  get a reply from Victoria on  their proposed expansion?"  "I don't know,' said the  Mayor. 2     Coast News, Jan. 22, 1975.  on water  Subscription Rates: British Columbia $4.50 per year;  $2.50 for six months; Canada except B.C. $5.00 per year;  United States and Foreign $8.50 per year. >  Published Wednesdays at Gibsons, B.C.

The appointment is routine as far as the department  is concerned but somehow the proposal to throw the appointment into the public domain has misfired. The proposal came from some members of the Sechelt School  Teachers association.  It should be explained that Dr. Knight was, back in  the late 1960s a vice-principal at Gibsons Elementary  school under Principal George Cooper. He remained  there about one year.  The interesting part of the dismissal story as it appeared in the Vancouver Sun last Friday had a member  of the department of education referring to the Sechelt  1 School District. The Sun version mentioned there is to  be community involvement in the selection of a superintendent for the Sechelt district.  The Sun story continued: "The Sechelt proposal was  strong in the area of authority and responsibility, one of  the white paper's concerns, a source in the education department informed the Sun."  The early January meeting of the district school  board had before it a three page letter from the Sechelt  Teachers Association signed by Frank L. Fuller, president. This letter wanted the selection of a new superintendent thrown wide open with a cross-examination of  the applicants.  School superintendents are employees of the department of education and not the school board. The department pays the salary involved and has the superintendent as its liaison between the department and school  board.  This new approach to the selection of a superintendent is tied up in what can be termed a collegiality approach to education problems as expressed in Minister  Dailly's white paper. Collegiality means wide open  discussion at all levels on matters invoving education.  It is likely after a departmental study to allow the  superintendency appointment to go to the public via a  questionnaire to see what interest the public will show.  The average guess would be ��� not much.  There is no indication in the Knight dismissal that  the minister has changed her .mind over further use of  the white paper as a means of making discoveries. This  remains to De seen.  Start at the TOP!  To be fair to the young rowdies who are making  their presence known in no uncertain terms, perhaps  their elders should do some soul searching and come up  with a better suggestion than "we should begin at the  bottom and clean up this mess."  Beginning at the bottom will be of no consequence.  We should start at the top of our society and clean things  up there. The younger folk could then have more res-,  pect for the "top."  During the cleanup of affairs in the upper population echelon include giving the constabulary a chance ���  at least an equal chance with those of the criminal world.  The media are prone to play up so-called police brutality  but have we ever heard the expression mob brutality?  There is some ��� and plenty.  It is shameful for a policeman to accept a bribe but  it is not shameful for the criminal or anyone else who  can get away with it. Why a double standard? Perhaps  the rules of the game need tightening up.  A reassessment of morality and the responsibilities  involved would help. The muck available via periodicals  is debasing.  So let us start at the top and cleanse ourselves right  down to the youthful element. We might gain more respect that way. Starting at the bottom would not get at  the root cause.  From the Dayton & .Knight .report to Gibsons council  To improve waiter service in  the study area requires firstly  the acquisition of the existing  deep weels at Langdale and  Hopkins Landing, secondly the  taking over of" the local distribution systems "for Granth  ams Landing, Soames Point,  Hopkins Landing and Langdale, and thirdly the development of a new adequate distribution system with fire stor  age reservoirs and large mains.  The start of such a distdibu-  tion system is now available to  serve the second service pressure zone in Langdale, but the  rest of the area in the low zone  is lacking an adequate system.  A system, comprising a 100,  000 gallon reservoir at albout  elevation 250 and a grid of 6-  inch watermains is necessary.  In the proposed system,  water would be pumped from  the Langdale and Hopkinjs  Landing Wells into the 100,000  gallon reservoir and from there  distributed to the low zone between Granthams Landing and  Langdale by gravity.  Some of the water would be  repumiped from the low zone  to the existing 50,000 gallon  wood stave tank above Langdale and from it distributed to  serve the second service pressure zone, mainly in the Langdale subdivision.  It   is   estimated  the  system  Would serve 450 out of the 475  existing homes in the study  area.  The cost of the system is ten  tatively estimated as follows:  1. Assumption of outstanding debt for the Hopkins  Landing Well $20,000  2. Assumption of outstanding  debt for the Langdale Well  30,000'  .3.  Assumption  of  outstand-  . ing   debt  for  the   Langdale  Tank 10/000  4. Assumption of outstand-  ing debt for the Langdale dis  tribution system. 10,000  5. Construction of 100,000  gallon reservoir. 100,000  6. Construction of booster  pumping station for low to  high   zone. 10,000  7. Construction of 9,000 feet  of 6-inch watermain between  Langdale and Granthams  Landing. 108,000  Making a Total of $288,000  or say $300,000.  The yearly cost of operation  and maintenance of the system  would   be:  1. Hopkins Landing     station $3,000  2. Langdale  station 4,000.  3. Booster  pumping  station  2,000.  4. Rest of maintenance and'  apeuation   for   the   systefm.    .  1,000.  A   total  of $10,000  The total yearly costs would  be:   Bond   Redemption   and  Interest ,.- $33,000  Operation   and  Maintenance  10,000  A Total of $43,000  If, current Village of Gibsons  water rates are applied to the  study area, a tentative estimate of the revenue is: Flat  rate $3.75 month for 450 .connections $20,000  .Plus frontage tax 20 cents per  foot per year for an estimated  550 lots with an average width  of 100 ft. fronting a water  main. $l_.,O00  resulting in a total of     $33,000  Current Village wated rates,  therefore, would be inadequate  to maintain a position of self-  liquidation in the study airea.  Over the 450 existing connections, the yearly cost is an  average, of $96 per connection per year.  This cost could be decreased  to about $72 if the new systetm  in West Howe Sound was connected tp the Gibsons system  at Chekwelp and.the Gibsons  low zone * reservoir used to  balance the low zone. While  such an arrangement would  be technically mutually beneficial to both the study area  and to Gibsons it would advance the date at which surplus capacity in the Gibsons  lower reservoir would be exhausted.  In the future, a (third well  could be developed to serve a  750 people population. Its cost  of $100,000 plus the cost of  operation arid 'maintenance of  $4,000 per year works out to  about $60 per new connection.  The cost of new distribution  mains in the area should foe  the responsibility of sufbdivider  and not a liability to the water  utility.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  The price reported set on the  purchase of Sechelt's Water  system by the Regional District board is close to $119,000.

JAN</$  __S_  On March 1, the Modified Grid System of claim staking will take effect in  British Columbia. This is a far superior method of locating and identifying  mineral ciaims. It should lead to increased discoveries and developments,  while virtually eliminating conflicting claims.  TIMEOUT  Before this can happen,  records must be  revised and   maps must be  prepared, using the Modified Grid System. And  care must be taken that the new system and  the present system are not confused. So, there  will be a moratorium beteween January 15  and February 28 on claim staking in British  Columbia. Remember, no claim staking during this six-week period.  For a full report  on innovations in B.C. mining, read "There  Have Been Some Changes."

As I stated in last weeks  item we need more money  from either the community or  the governments in order to  build the fouiidiirig with a  cement floor. Obviously a  cement floor is best because  then the building can be used  both summer and winter. It  could be used for roller skating  dances ,arts and crafts displays  and workshops, bingos and  many other functions which re  quire a large hall.  Iff you think what we are  doing is good for the area, then  join us. Pick up an application  form from the Royal Bank,  Gibsons. Those wiho have already joined, we can use your  money, so take it to the Royal  Bank at your earliest convenience.  We have planned for a  future arena with our ice plant.  The plant is a 50 horsepower  unit which would be adequate  to hold ice for an arena for up  to 48 hours wihile work was  being done on an arena ice  fclant. The plant will also hold  ice early and late in the season  so that ice skating can be accommodated in the beginning  weeks and final weeks of the  curling year. The larger plant  will also hold ice during thie  summer. Its final advantage  is taking less time to build the  ice-10 days instead of the 30  needed for a smaller plant.  Our estimated cost to completion remains at $150,000. How  ever a recent estimate for insurance purposes already sets  the replacement cost at $200.-  000. The substantial saving in  cost over value is a result of  donated equipment and many  hours of volunteer labour. If  you have an hour or two to  spare, drop by the site and per  haps they can put you to work.  There are many jobs which  can be done by volunteer help.  Squamish area  gets flood cash  The province will provide  $500,000 to the District of Squa  mish for.conistruction of dykes  for flood control in Bracken  dale area of the Lower Squamish Valley.

Slough some 10,000 feet down  stream to the vicinity of Indian  Reserve No. 16.  TMr. Williams restated the  general provincial policy to reduce the ever-increasing flood  damage costs by a program of  sound flood plain management  and planning.

Wharf dismantling opposed  Wilson CMeek Oomimunitiy  Association is sending a formal  petition to Jack Pearsall', MP,  protesting the proposed dismantling of Davis Bay wharf.

Although rated general by  the B.C. government film classifier, the film is not just for  Children. Gene Shalit of WNBC  .recommended it for children  and sophisticated adults who  have a rich imagination and  said the film was well worth  the attention and praise it received v at last year's Cannes  Film Festival.  Following Fantastic Planet,  on Jan. 25, 26, 27 is Cabaret, a  film that since last playing* at  the   Twilight   over two   years  ago has won eight Academy  Awards, including best actress  Liza  Minnelli.  The story, based in Christopher Isherlwood's I Am A Camera, is set in 1930s Berlin during the rise of Nazism and portrays life as seen through the  eyes of a calbaret performer  played by best supporting actor  Joel Gray  Our Valentine Cards are  now on display, only three  weeks left to send them.

SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A B100D DONOR Editor: It was reassuring to  join such a large turn-out from  the four smaller communities  Monday night in Gibsons Elementary Library to hear Mayor Labonte attempt to regain  some credibility for their proposed expariMon program  through to Port Mellon.  The out-of -town residents  'gave the Mayor an uninterrupted hearing, ably supported by  AM.

It is now obvious Gib--  sons council would come into  this fictional "Amalgamated  Council" iwiith nothing to offer  except immediate financial demands on the new Council's  finances.  By Mayor Labonte's own admission this new council would  be dbminlated by the majority,  the residents of Gibsons.  Perhaps had Mayor Labonte  sat down with the leaders of  the smaller communities to  discuss this problem instead of  presenting a virtual fait accorn-  pli, they would not be in a  neutral corner and out of gear  as they are nofW.  Sadly no spokesman for Port  Mellon industries raised his  voice to air the views of the  most important cog in the  Mayor's plans.  Before the curtain falls, let  me say that this was a good  natured crowd with no hard  feelings on either, side.

All members are requested to attend.  vk:;:.    :"iu,.'j  INSURANCE AND  YT'LieENCH��Y  !'i\ yt  J. H.G. (Jim) Drummond  INSURANCE AGENCY LTD.  Box 274, Gibsons, B.C  Phone 886-7751 or 886-2807  ABOVE SIMPSON-SEARS  uestionnaire pro  on superintendent choice  The school board met with  Mr. Jack Fleming, deputy minister of education, and Mr. Don  Oasrtiwig, acting superintendent of field personnel on  Thursday, Jan. 16, to discuss  procedures leading to the appointment of a district super--  intendent of schools to replace  Mr. R. R. Hanna following his  retirement.  The district superintendent  is a civil servant, employed by  the Department of Education  and charged under the Public  Schools Act with many important responsibilities which affect education in his superin-  tendency.- As such, the final  decision on the appointment  will rest with the minister of  education.  Because the district superintendent works so closely with  the bo^rd, it is obviously in  the best interests of all concerned if the board concurs  with the department's decision,  and in fact the procedure in  recent years has seen a board  aible to interview prospective  district superintendents' and to  indicate their preference to  the department, which has  then, usually, appointed that  person to the district.  Although involvement of  boards by the department is  not "new in the province of B.C.  it is new in this district however, and on top of this there  has been evidence of interest  by various groups in participating in the selection procedure in one way or another.  Hence, the meeting, to discuss  various selection procedures  which. could be used by the  board. ;  The board and the department were in, agreement that  there should be widespread  public involvement in the process. There was also agreement  that for a meaningful choice  to be made the choosers must  have a clear idea of wfhiat they  want from the person of their  choice; therefore, the first task  would be to establish the criteria by which the applicants  will be measured. This obviously requires a clear definition of what kind of an educational system is wanted! by this  district. To obtain the widest  possible range of advice on this  topic, the board will do two  things:  1. Send a questionnaire tb  every household, asking that  you fill it in and return it. An  analysis of these questionnaires will give the board a  very good idea of the wishes of  the community.  . 2. Hold' public meetings and  receive briefs from interested  groups or individuals.  This process should be completed within a month and the  board will use this information to guide them and the Department of Education in the  final interview and selection  procedures leading to appoint-  . ment.  Please do your part, read  the questionnaire, think about  it, fill it in and return it to  the board office, Box 220, Gibsons. Come to the meetings if  you possibly can. Let's make  public involvement mean total  community involvement.  The following statement on  the issue involving selecting a  school superintendent was given the Coast News by Tim  Frizzell of oeima. Park:  On December 18, a delegation of parent representatives  met with the deputy minister  of education, Mr. Fleming, to  discuss how our community  can work with our school trustees for the benefit of local  education.  The discussion centered  around two main topics having far reaching implications  for the school district. First,  Mr. Fleming advised that a  new research and development  program in which lodal development activities can be assisted by the department will be  offered to all school districts  in the near future.  This program allows for  agreements on special funding  and the provision of expertise  for the implementation of a  wide range of projects. Guidelines for the program will soon  be made public. Mr. Fleming  made it very clear that one  criterion for eligibility is that  the district demonstrates that  the trustees, teacher and parent representatives can co-operatively work together on educational, matters of mutual  concern.  The second1 topic discussed  was the selection of the new  superintendent of schools to  replace Mr. Hanna who is retiring at the end of this month.  Mr. Fleming explained that  the sohool board would recommend the appointment from a  list of candidates^ but that the  Department of Education must,  because of present legislation  and practice, make the final  decision.   ,      lA,  The delegation asked Mr.  Fleming how the board could  go about getting the superintendent of its choice. Mr.  Fleming replied that although  the final decision remains with  the Department of Education,  the department is encouraging  boards to involve the community in the process and would  appreciate a recommendation  arrived at and supported by  local trustees, teachers and  parent representatives.  The function of a representative committee - to make such  a recommendation would be to  first determine leadership criteria meeting the needs of all  segments of our educational  community and secondly, to interview the candidates for the  purpose of comparing them to  the criteria. Mr. Fleming pointed out that an interim appointment terminating at the end  of this school year or other  procedures can be used to give  our district time to choose the  best candidate.  Mr. Fleming left the members of the delegation with the  definite impression that the  sohool districts that will provide the best education for  their children will be those  that have community involvement with their trustees in  planning and decision making.  This delegation wishes to encourage those parents who  want to become involved in a  positive way in local educa- ���  tion to phone or write their  trustees requesting that the  board invite parents and teachers to- participate on a committee for the selection of the  ne(w superintendent of schools.  The address of the school  board office is Box 220, Gibsons. The phone number of  your trustee can be obtained  by calling the school board  office at 886-2225.  WILSON CREEK  MEETING REPORT  (WES-son Creek Coanmunitc/  Association iwould like a voice  in the hiring of the mew school  su/pei_|^enderit because "the  school^ discipline problem is  bad and getting worse.  "I think teachers would like  a superintendent who is imaginative enough to say that  the first thing we have to get  Coast News, Jan. 22, 1975.     7  under control is the discipline  problem, "Tim Frizzed! told the  association last week.  Association members were  concerned that the schools do  not continue with the present  lack of discipline because  some students are "so rude  they make you sick."  Frizzell suggested ��� a small  /cocmmiiiitce rerpnesenMnig th/e  community could sit in on the  interviews -with candidates for  the superintendent position to  question educational philosophies.  Frizzell said that it twas up  to the school board to include  or exclude the public's views.  "The board should be concerned over the fact that various people in the community  a're concerned."  The superintendent, to replace R.R. Hannah who retired  last month, "will be, employed  by the dlepartment, of education but local school board  trustees have final say in rejection c*r acceptance of the  candidate.  Roads get big  part of budget  ���Sechelt council accepted their  1975, provisional budget last  Week iwith revenues and ex-  penlditures each totalling $275,-  670.  Alderman Norm Watson said  that the main part of the new  budget is the expenditures for  roads and maintenance which  totalled almost $25,000 last yetar  in actual expenditure and has  been allotted $15,000 for 1975.  iSechelt clerk Tom Wood told  council that there is $25,000  outstanding in unpaid taxes.  He felt that many people would  rather accumulate the lower  interest on the unpaid tax money than borrow the money  from the bank and subsequently pay higher interest.  Mayor Harold Nelson suggested that the village apply  to the provincial government  to change the tax statute to  bring the interest rates in line  with those of a bank.  Council also passed an indemnity byilaW that will increase pay scales across the  boiard by 10%.  If you think advertising is a bunch of baloney,  why are you reading this ad?

Homemaker help growing!  by Rob Van Buiten  Lef s say she's about 70 years  old. Let's say that she lives by  herself in a little house somewhere between Gibsons and  iSechelt. Let's call her Mrs.  Green, although thafs not her  real name.  Mrs. Green likes living alone  because she's always been an  independent person. But  there's a problem. She has  arthritis. Consequently has a  little difficulty walking even  with the aid of her cane and  she can't bend down to pickup  anything off the floor without  the use of a special aid provid  ed by the Canadian Arthritis  and Rheumatism Society.  Mrs. Green can't get out to  buy her groceries, she can't do  her housework, and she has  trouble making her meals. The  necessities.  "If I didn't have this service  I don't know what I would do,"  Mrs. Green states. The service  she is referring to is Home-  maker Services, a very viable  branch of the Sunshine Coast  Resource Society, which was  started last June under the  direction of Jo-Anne Haramia  of the Provincial Resources  Department.  Mrs. D. Robson, who oc-  ordinates the service for the  ' Sunshine Coast area from Port  Mellon to Pender Harbour says  that there are presently about  30 homeimakers who help a  number of people in a variety  of ways. The majority of home  makers, Mrs. Robson says, as-  sisit elderly people, like Mrs.  Green, who want to live on  their own but find1 the daily  duties Of life difficult to  handle. But the service also  assists the families of expectant mothers when the mother  is in the hospital. "And we  have one man working Iwith  us who chops the fire wood,"  Mrs. Robson states.  The homemaker who helps  Mrs. Green comes in twice a  week. She does the shopping  posts the letters, rinses out-the  clothing, and vacuums the carpet and the chesterfield.  While Mrs. Green can't do  any of the physical work herself she tries to make it as  easy as possible for her home-  maker. She prepares a list, for  instance, of all the things that  need to be done.  "There's the daily things  such as making the bed, mopping the floors, dusting the  furniture, and watering the  plants. Then there's the other  things to do periodically such  as defrosting the fridge and  cleaning the oven."  The   homemaker   also   helps  "Mrs. Green with her meals.  Vegetables and salads are prepared and put in plastic containers so they can be eaten on  off days when the homemaker  isn't there. And on other days  the homemaker makes sure  that Mrs. Green gets a warm  meal.  Besides being thankful that  there is someone to help her  with the housework, Mrs.  Green is also glad to have some  one to talk toi  "I find it lonely being alone  sometimes and ?We .always' find  time for a chat and. a cup of  tea," she says and goes on to  talk about how a homemaker  should be treated not as a servant but as a friend.  Mrs. Green isn't the only per  son  thankful   for   the   home-  V  maker services. There are approximately 34 people on the  S"untehine Coast who are receiving assistance and Mrs.  Robson says that because of  the intitial success expansion  is inevitable. .  The service, operating partly  on an $1800 grant from the  Human Resource Department,  is currently housed in a private  residence but plan�� are to move  to expandled offices in Sechelt  under the same roof as the  minibus services. Plans are  also underway to organize a  course for homemakers under  the auspice of the adult education program.  As the homemaker services  exjpands life will become a  little less precarious for more  people like Mrs. Green who  finds that friends and neighbours are sometimes ready to  help but you can't rely onl  them as you can rely on the  homemaker  Printed  Pattern  Straight pleats are easy!

The Senior teams were also  well matched. The Cougars had  the lead most of the game, but  the Chargers managed to catch  up in the last minutes. In the  last quarter of the game, Dave  Larmb, Wayne Smith and Leigh  Wolverton fouled out of the  game.  With ten seconds left, the  Cougars were up 80-79 with  the ball on the side. iSoimehow  they lost the ball, and the  Chargers came down and with  four seconds left scored.

On Ho w to Save Energy in Your Own Home  Walk a few steps and save!  Your fireplace is a good place to Dial-a-saving.  start. When it's in use, it's a bright, -7   cheery, comforting sight. When it's  dark and silent, it can be the  greatest single energy waster in the  house. A fireplace without a  damper (or one with a damper that's  not closed) sucks heat out of your  house like a monstrous vacuum  cleaner, wasting up to 20% of your  annual heating costs. But a damper  that's closed when it should be, or a  tight-fitting solid screen in front of  the fireplace, will help cut down the  heat loss  '���frf&Aftf.  Everyone's heard of the energy,  crunch, but are you aware of the  energy nibble?,We mean the dozens  of little ways we all waste energy;  little dribs and drabs that nibble  away at valuable natural resources  and at bur pocketbooks. The fact is,  energy wasted can mean money  wasted, whether it's a little or a lot.  Ahd a bunch of "littles" always add  up to a lot.  We think it's worth a lot to you to  conserve energy, right in your own  home. When you look around,  you'll find many ways to fight "the  energy nibble" ��� easily, painlessly  and, in many cases, without spending money.  Wny not spend a few minutes on a  tour of your home? you're sure to  find places where you can save, and  we'll even show you where to look.  ��� . ���  Your fireplace.  Save energy  in your spare time.  Look into saving energy  through your windows.  Windows let in light, heat and,  depending on the view, some pleasant scenery. They can also let heat  escape, even when they're closed.  Weather-stripping can help keep  the heat in and the cold out ��� it's a  simple, inexpensive way to save.  Storm windows and doors are also a  good idea.  And, if you're contemplating the  construction of a new house, consider double, or even triple glazed  windows to cut heat losses and  reduce condensation on the windows.  Drapes can help, too. On a bright,  sunny day, open them up and let the  sun help heat your house (sunlight is  absolutely free). At night, be sure to  close your drapes and you'll reduce  heat losses.  Here's one way you can save just  by turning a dial. Turn down your  thermostat by 10�� every night, and  you'll turn down your annual heating bill by about 10%! Going away  for the weekend or longer? Set it at  55�� ahd conserve energy. And keep  in mind, for every one degree over  70�� you set your thermostat, you  use from 3 to 5% more energy.  Wouldn't it make more sense to put  on a sweater instead, especially if  the sweater's already paid for?  These are just a few of the ways you  can save energy right in your own  home. You can probably find more  ways with little or no trouble. (By  the way, if no one is watching TV,  why is the set still turned on?)  Energy conservation doesn't take  much effort, but it can mean more  than you think ��� to your budget, to  your environment, to your future.  After all, that's what's such a  shame about wasting energy:  you're wasting much more than just  your money.  When you use energy wisely,  you save a lot more than you think.  B.C. HYDRO  CUSTOMER ADVISORY SERVICE  Coast News, Jan. 22, 1975.     0  Leigh Wolverton 13  Saturday night the Cougars  were at St. Thomas More, in  ���what proved to be a lo!w scoring, slow moving game. The St.  Thomas More Knights purposely slowed the gaone in an attempt to rattle the Cougars,  who are a real run and gun  club. The Cougars proved too  much for the Knights though,  as Elphie defeated them for the  first time ever with a score of  46-43. Wayne S_niith wlas high  scorer with 18 pts.  So far this year the Cougars Senior boys have won 14  out of 17 games, winning two  tournaments and finishing second in a third. High scorers  over ���aE so far this yejair are:  Wayne Smith, 239, Leigh Wolverton 2114, Frank Hatvies: 184,  .David Neumann 182,. Kerry  Bjornson 148.

Lad rescued  as boat sinks  A 15 year old Gibsons juvenile was rescued from the cold  waters of Howe Sound last  week when a power boat he  was' operating sank and he was  forced to cling to one of the  seats.  The juvenile, whose name  was not released by RCMP,  was pulled out of the wlater  about 6:30 .a.m. last Wednesday by Bob Wilson and Tom  Grant after the two heard yells  in the area in front of H|_ll's  Marine.  Police quoted an ambulance  attendant as saying thiat another five minutes in the water and the boy could have  died of exposure.  The 16 foot boat, stolen from  Smitty's Marinia, is owned by  a Squamish resident.  Safe robbed  Gibsons ROMP report that  between $4,000 and $5,000 was  stolen last week from the safe  of the Peninsula Hotel.  Police believe that the safe  was either left open or the  thief had knowledge of the  combination because there was  no evidence of forced entry.  The incident occurred sometime between 1(2:30 a.m. and  3:30 am. on Jan. 15.  Paving shows  signs  A resident who lives along  the road to the arena in Sedhelt noted that the pavement  .that was laid on part of the  road only a few months ago is  already starting to break  up.  Heavy rains last weekend  and rising temperatures forcing the frost to the surface  have created a roadway that  has been described as treacherous. .  Sechelt council, iri a closed  committee last week, expressed concern over the high cost  of maintaining the arena road.  A letter will be sent to Coast  Paving, contractors who paved  the arena road, asking them to  take action on the deteriorating condition of the roadjway.

'  /  New Horizons to continue  iSecheJFs Old Age Pensioners  Association may be out on the  street, because they'don't have  $50,000 to purchase the old  Legion hall on Mermaid Street  E. Scott. _i_presea_tii-g  the pensioners, told Sechelt  counjcil last wteefc thjatt the  group will not haive a plaice to  carry on their activities unless  they can come up with the  money immediately.  He said the Legion is anxious to . sell the ��� building in)  order to clear up some of their  own deficits and although a  cotmanltment has been given  to the pensioners, the Legion  wants a cash deal.  The pensioners association  has rented the hall in the past  and the 275 members in the  organization are anxious to  keep it, "because there is no  other place iri Sedhelt."  Mr. Scott said that a grant  from the Human Resources  departmei-t may not come  until April which would be too  late for the purchase of the  hall.        .......  Mr. Scott said he met (with  MP Jack Pearsall and that  there appears to be a glimmer  of hope. He said he is appealing to the village, the Regional  Board, private industry, and  the members themselves fot  financial assistance.  Alderman Dennis Shuttle-  worth suggested the organizah  tion hire a professional appraiser because "I think $50,  000 is too mue__, especially  with a poor roof."  Mr JSeott said he was happy  with the present appraisal considering all the extras such as  a piano and dishes that are included in the price.  "We have a few doubting  Thomases in our bunch and we  aire not going to be had," Mir.  Scott told Alderman Shuttle-  worth.  Alderman Ernie Booth said  that council was in sympathy  (with the organization but that  the plea for financial assistance  came at a bad time because of  other requests and a limited  budget.  Alderman Norman Watson  said council could not pledge  enough money to make it  worth-while without going to  a referendum. The matter was  taibled! for further discussion  along with the village's 1075  provisional budget.  Senior girls at  Pender Harbour  By MARL A SCHNEIDER  Eljphinstone senior girls defeated Pender Harour's "senior  girls 27-17 on JanJl4 at Pender  Harbour. High scorer for Elphi  was Gail Blcxmgren.     .  On Wed. Jan.15 the girls  played Sardis. The girls played  really well and their game was  jexciting, especially the first  and second quarter. During the  third quarter, Stardis' girls  caught up and even though  our girls kept up their deter-  hoination and staniinai, they  eventually beat us 22-il9.  High scorer for Elphi was  again Gal Blomgren who was  assisted by every one of her  team members. A very good  game was played by Elaine  Gant and Sue Dixon.  j~  Branch 38, O A P O  VALENTINE  DANCE  Friday, February 14 ��� 6 p.m.  CANADIAN LEGION HALL  Tickets $1.25 per person  Phone Helen Raby 886-2502  or Irene Bushfield, 886-9567  Deadline for tickets Jan. 31  Sponsored by Ladies' Auxiliary to Branch 109  Are you ready for  Autopian? - We are.

Cemetery juggling suggested  There's a bit of juggling go-  ing on between Sechelt council  and the Regional Board. It's  called who wants the cemetery? -  Last month the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce sent a  letter to the Regional Board  asking them to consider a ceme  tery in Sechelt. The Regional  Board felt that a Sechelt ceme  tery would be the responsibility of Sechelt council. So the  letter was sent to Sechelt.  "Drive it right back to them,"  said Alderman Nortm Watson  on receipt of the letter, "they  have the function arid we participate in it" ������',���'���  Auxiliary has  an active year  In presenting the annual;  report of the Gibsons Hospital  auxiliary,, Mrs. Jean Langley  reported 1074 a busy year.  The 53 members who volun-  teeretdl approximately 1.000  hours were involved in bridge  nights, a spririg dance, coiripil  ing the Gibsons voters list,  and an Aloha luncheon that  earned about $2,500. Other  volunteers worked in the hospital gift shop and extended  care unit.  Bridge nights are held in the  health unit on Lower Fletcher,  the next one on Jan. 27 at 7:30  p.m. Those wanting more information may phone Mrs. W.  ���Davis ot 886-2009.  There will also be a work  party at the home of Mrs.  Doris Drummond on Franklin  Road Jan. 29 at 12 noon.  The auxiliary is also looking  ���for people who ,would do some  knit-rig for the hospital gift  shop. Wool is supplied.  Robbery at  Dental clinic  About $31 in cash was stolen  Sunday night from Gibsons  Dental Clinic. RCMP, investigating, report that thieves  forced their way in through a  window from the lower roof  level.  Another theft was reported  at the Valhalla Pool Hall, Jan.  16, where $56 in cash was stolen. The same business was  broken into on Jan. 6 when $40  and two pool cues were taken.  Police have apprehended a juvenile in relation to that offence.  SEASIDE PLAZA  Phone 886-2000 ��� Gibsons, B.C.  Watson felt that it was up  to the Regional board to apply  to the provincial government  for land and if the cemetery  was to be located in the village  the board could buy land  either from the village or the  Indian band council.  There the matter rests.  Credit courses  for next spring  The Center for Continuing  Education announces a numiber  of credit courses will be offered in the spring semester  in either a Gibsons or Sechelt  location depending on where  most students live.  The courses, history of education, philosophy of education, theory of personality,, and  introductory, psychology' will  be taught by David Little  who is presently a doctoral  candidate at UiBC.  The courses will begin sometime in Februalry and Kairen  Hoeaniberg, co-ordinator for the  program says at least one  course will take place during  the day in order to accommodate students not available  in the evenings.  Interested people are asked  to coritaict the co-ordinator at  886-2225.  The federal government has  algreed that New Horizons,  started on an exipeTJimenitaft  basis in IST-i, should have fuH  program status, Health and  Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde has announced.  The government will also  recommend to parliament in  the coming session an increase  of $4 million to the grants element of the program for 1975-  76 augmenting the total budget  to $14 million for all costs.  The Minister explained that  in the light of experience gain  ed to date, additional funding  is needed to meet the enthusi-  aistic response of retired  Canadians to the .program and  will be used to increase participation in Nejw Horizons.  The proposed increase also  reflects the government's concern to offer the greatest man  ber of retired Canadians the  opportunity of involving1 them  selves  actively  in  the  main-  J  stream of Canadian life.  Since its introduction in Sep  temlber    1972,    3,280    projects  have been funded for a total of ^  $18,1(47,410   involving   676^802 ;'{  people. 1  LEGAL  1975  COURT OF REVISION  BRITISH COLUMBIA )  ASSESSMENT AUTHORITY  Take notice that the first sitting of the Court of ReyMon  to hear appeals concerning the  1975 Assessment Roll for the  Comox Assessment District  will be held as follows:  School District 47 (Powell River) at Powell River on Monday, February 17(_h, 1975 at  10:00 in the forenoon iii the  Provincial Government Building.   .

Sanucci bail  continues as  court case  A recommendation by Crown  Prosecutor Hugh Mcdallum to  stay proceedings on the charge  of skipping bail against John  SanuccL known as John Anthony Sherwood, was not accepted by Judge J. S. P. Johnson  in Provincial Court Thursday  because no authorization had  been given by the attorney-  general.  Sanucci was involved in the  death of Mary Margaret Jones,  33, on the Roberts Creek property of Dal' Grauer last July.  When Prosecutor Hugh Mc-  Callum called for a stay of  proceedings on the breach of  recognizance, Judge Johnson  said thlat McCallum did not  have the power to enter the  stay of proceedings and that  according to the Criminal Code  direct authorization had to  come from the Attorney General.  McCallum then asked Judge  Joftin-son to withdraw the same  charge because it wias not in  the interest of justice tp prolong the matter. Judge Johnson said that it was even more  of _ process to withdraw the  charges and by staying proceedings the court could deal  with the breach if Sanucci ever  came back.  Robert Gardner, attorney  representing Harvey McNeil,  father of the deceased, criticized the Crown because Sanucci wias transported to the UJS.  Tuesday iwith "great dispatch."  "It would appear that a court  order has been flaunted by  those administering justice,"  Gardner \toid the court. He said  it was generally not in the interest of justice for warrants  to be hidden in RCMP files.     ]  The matter was remanded  one week to allow the Crown  to obtain a stay of proceedings  order from the attorney gen-  Bunker Blasts  Come on golf beginners.

"We are concerned about the  collection of junk cars and the  truck 'having to be parked so  far from his house," the letter  states.  Mayor Labonte said that be  had niet with Kelly twice before on this matter and "it  hlasn't paid7 off."  He said.it was time to make  a move on Kelly and alleviate  the situation. t  I handing down the suspen  ded sentence Judge Johnson  noted Biuys extensive record  arid said that constantly sending aNman back to jail does  nothing for the man or the  community.
