Elphinstone wffll. be completed nex+ fall to accommodate 600 students and Mr.  Montgomery says he has three  ^alternatives to atccommodate.  the extra 230 stutdents.  IThe school could countinue  the present shift system wihich  straddles the students body  between morning and afternoon sessions, the student body  >could! be divided into two  sethocjls anid eaidh could go  on shift, or, Mr. Montgomery  says, the shifts could be eliminated and temporary accommodation provided for the  .extra students by 5 annex  rooms, a portable band room,  and twfc> portable classrooms re  located to the side of the  science wing.  The school board plans a  meeting'-'with teaching staff to  decide what Mr. Montgomery  calls this major district deci  sion. ������������ -'.;���-.  Parents in Roberts Creek  disaigree with the'T school  boardfs dhoice for tbe location  of the. neiw Seohelt junior secondary school  In abetter to the board the  Roberts Creek parents Auxiliary states that "it is too far for  the '^Roberts Creek chi-dten to  travel each day."/ 'The letter  suggests the board give further  consideration to Selma Park  and Davis. Bay locations before  the final decision is made.  i "We've been through this  many times," secretary-treasurer Roy Mills told the board  x in response to the letter. "We  have investigated and the decision has been made."  The site chosen for the new  school to be completed by Sep-  - tember 1976 is on lots numbered 1 and 2 in Sechelt near the  -Sunshine Coast arena.  Mills told the board that  MLA Don Lockstead had earlier commented on the location  of the new school ^asking if  there was no other-site available.

Traffic light rejected  The Highways department  has refused to install traffic  signals on Highway 101 near  the schools because traffic volumes are well below those required to justify such a-crossing.  A letter to the school board  ffom-Tuciker Forsyth, district  highiways technician, states  that low traffic volumes encourage students to cross the  highway where ever they find  it convenient  In response to the rejection  trustee Agnes Labonte said, "I  wonder   when   they   take   t'he  readings ��� during the night or.  the day."  ���Superintendent R. R. Hanna  felt students were doing very  well without trarffic signals.  "There, is a lot of traffic anid  a lot of students F think they  are' mature enough to look after themselves."  The highways department  suggested the board provide a  temporary adult crossing guard  until there is evidence that  traffic is sufficient and students will cross at a single  point.

Jim Williamson, Gibsons nited Church minister for  the past six years has decided  to vacate- the West Howe  Sound Pastoral Charge. The announcement was made Suncflay.  Mr. Williamson came to Gib-  , sons in September 1969 from a  church pastorate on the northern part of Vancouver Island.  He will remain here until  next June when his term of  service will have been fulfilled'.  In the meantime church officials will seek a replacement.  The needs of the congregation is the theme1 of the Gibsons United Ohunch annual  "meeting 7:30 pm. Wednesday  at the United Church hall,  at the United Church Hall. Coffee and dessert will he served  from 7p.m.  'Sr--  School bus rules revised  Two die in motel fire  Smoking in bed' is believed  to be the cause of a fire that  killed two people last weekend  in unit 8 of the Bella Beaoh  Motel in Davis Bay.  Larry  William  Munson,   33,  of North Vairwiouver and' his 29  year old wife- Janet Louise,  who was residing in Powell  River, were found dead in the  smoke filled room early Sunday morning, after a passing  fireman spotted smoke and  turned in the alarm.  The couple had checked into  the motel Saturday night. It  was believed they were trying  to resolve family problems.  The fire was contained to  one unit. An inquest will not  bo held.  The school board is considering a set of rules for school  bu^ drivers and students.  Wlhen Superintendent- Hannah suggested taking out the  rule students must sit three  to a seat,, secretary-treasurer  Roy Mills didn't think it such  Gibsons needs  more revenue  Y If s going to be a leanTyeiar  for Gibsons.  In presenting the 1975 provisional bud!get last week finance committee chairman  Kurt Hoehne indicated thatat  29.40 mills Gibsohs was taxed  to the limit and with no increased tax base the revenue of  $563,937 was not significantly  :greater"than last year.  Without increased revenue,  Hoehne said many improvements scheduled'for this year  dannot bei carried out because  of inflation. The aldermen will  not get a pay increase this"  year and only the mayor's indemnity will be increased1 by  10 percent. '  Aldiermen are presently receiving $1,355 a year and the  mayor $2,125.  Council's final budget will  be presented in March.  a good idea  "The  department of education will not authorize another  bus run unless there are three,  to a seat, "Mills told the board.  ��� This rule was a major policy  decision because it could cost  , the board  a great, deal more  money that would send the tax  rate up another mill, he added.  "The department will say fine,  .you ;can have another bus but  you pay for it,"  Mills said students may not  like7 it,but they can sit 3 to a.  seat. He said that many sohool  districts in B.C.  are now enforcing that rule.  Public utility regulations  state each passenger must have  '18 inches but superintendent  Hannah thought if the department of education wanted to  breach the regulation all they  ���have to do is shurg their shoul  ders and smile their wry smile  when questioned about it.  Hannah said his point in  eliminating the three-to-arseat  rule'from the regulations, a-  dapted from the Courtenay  school district, -was to avoid  conflict. "We hope it doesn't  cause a riot on the buses, Hannah said.  The board felt that the situation wias not severe now because Elphinstone is on shifts  and the buses are not that  crowded.  In  what police   consider  to  be a professional and "outside  job" thieves broke through the  rear wall of Gibsons liquor  store last weekend and took  over 100 oases of hard liquor  valued at   $8,000.  Police believe the 3-foot hole  was made with a croiwbar or  an electric instrument and  tracks show that a truck had  been backed up to the opening  to haul out the liquor.  There was no other damage  to the interior of the store  other > than a wooden shelf  wihich thieves removed to gain  access.  The rear wall of the building  consists of 6-inch building  blocks that an efficient person  could break through in one  minute and 10 seconds, a liquor  store, spokesman said.  RCMP do not know how  many people were involved but  said it was no less than two.  Tire imprints show that a  truck with a 12 foot w-ieel-  baise was backed up to the  hole and it is probable that the  liquor was loaded directly Onto  the truck.  . Liquor store manager Ross  Macdonnell said he discovered  the hole at the back of the  store when he arrived for work  Monday morning. It had been  covered with a piece of plywood supplied by the thieves.  A handcart was later found  outside in a clump of bushes  about 100 yards from the building. . '>������ Y  The theft tdok place some-  ; .tune,, betlween Saturday eve-  " 'mng*after closi^5 aid-Monday  morning. RCMCP Corporal Dai'-  rell Price said that it probably  happened early Sunday morning because that would have  given the thieves plenty of  time to board a ferry and make  the escape before any thing' was  discovered.   ���  RCMP identification men  were on the scene Monday to  analyze the tire imprint�� and  take   fingerprints  Two other thefts were reported over the weekend. Gibsons Building Supplies was  broken into Saturday night and  a truck was stolen. Police have  picked up a 15 year old juvenile in relation to the incident.  The truck has been recovered -  undamaged.  Knives, vfatches and other  small items were stolen from  Gibsons Hardware sometime  oyer the weekend by thieves  who gained entry through a  rear   window.  Fifteen house break-ins have  occurred during the last two  weeks in Gibsons and RCMP  said that most of them involved juveniles.  Sea Cavalcade  seeks helpers  Gibsons Sea ��� Cavalcade is  again this year in need of executive members1. After last  year's financially successful  event, most of the executive  members, who have served for  the past few years, decided  they had hiad enough of working on the event and would like  others to take over.  A meeting has been called  for late February, the time and  place to be announced later,  and if there is not sufficient  turnout to run the Cava_teade,  it will have to be dropped'.

Recreational projects under development in 18 communities in British Columbia have been assisted by the  infusion of $355,415 from the December and January allocations of the Community Recreational Facilities Fund  Hon. Jack Radford, minister of recreation and conservation has announced.  This fund was established in 1973, with the first  grants being made on August 1 of that year. Since then  175 different municipalities and non-profit social, cultural, ethnic and religious groups in all corners of the province have been aided by 519 government grants in the  financing of community recreational facilities. The fund  which is administered by the Parks Branch of the De-*  par tment of Recreation and Conservation, is available  for grants to a maximum of $333,333.33 representing one-  third of the projected cost of a proposed facility. In the  past 17 months $32,383,708 in grants have been allocated  by this fund.  With our federal and provincial levels of government doing their damndest to spread their ideas of share-  the-wealth it -would be wise for the powers that be iii  Gibsons or on the Sunshine Coast to ask for "another  bowl of porridge."  The days when Oliver Twist got clouted for asking  for a second bowl of poorhouse porridge have long gone  and <as Gibsons and others have found out you get clouted now because you don't ask.  Take a look at some of the things other 'areas presented and obtained funds: Ski developments, community halls, recreational-cultural centre, outdoor sports complex, a United Church promotes \a community hall and  obtains $43,000, boat launching ramp, civic centre theatre, library renovations and many others.  Gibsons got $50,000 out of the last batch of provincial donations but that should not deter people with  other ideas than a curling rink to make an application.  If you care to look back into the numerous government handouts as far back as ARDA you WiH note thait  something like $50,000 for "youth movements" is all the  area has received. It isn't because we are less deserving.  We are just letting socialistic democracy pass by unmolested. It is time we dropped .pur smugness! If you  have any ideas let's have them. People moan because we  baven't got. Why not get busy and try.  A prime example  While there are many fields of retarded co-operation .  on the Sunshine Coast, St. Mary's Hospital Volunteer  organization is not one of them. Women can be thanked  for that. It is. women who maintain Hospital Auxiliaries the length of the Sunshine Coast and it is many of  the same women who make up the organization known  as the Volunteers of St Mary's Hospital.  The Volunteers have just concluded their annual  meeting and the many hours of their volunteer labors  were revealed in the committee reports. These volunteers stacked up close to 7,000 hours during the year  working for the patients in various phases.  Some of the work was done in hospital and some in  other ways, like the Thrift Shop, all for the benefit of  patients.  It is pleasant to know co-operation is not an entirely  meaningless word on the Sunshine Coast. If there is  outstanding co-operation covering all creeds the women  of the area are well in the lead on the Sunshine Coast.  5 to 25 years ago  (From White Rock Sun)  News that Solicitor General  Warren Allmand <wants a new  Juvenile Delinquents Act to  replace the 40-year-old relic  we now have on our hands is  welcome ���if overdue1��� news  indeed. .  Police and no few lawyers  have Charged repeatedly that  juvenile offendeirs are being  "mollycoddled!" under present  antiquated statues.  iSocial scientists and youth  workers, meaniwhile, have attempted with good reason to  protect underage criminals  from treatment beffitting adult  lawbreakers.  Whatever the problems with-  federal   law   however,   surely  Icame, there as experience local  ly hlas proven, to commit even  more misdeeds with apparent  abandon. :  Some compromise bettween  "^hoot the miscreants at daiwtn"  and "pity them, don't punish  theim" must be found if we  hope to abate the youthful  crime in our midists.  For vandas and B-&-E art  ists, surly full restitution for  (goods destroyed! or stolen is  not too much to expect.  For those guilty of more  dangerous crimes, surely some  form of "brainlwashinlg" in the  need for. acceptable, non-violent behavior i9 needed.  For recidivists in all categories, surly a well governed  "solutions" to youthful crime-  clearly the premise must be  that sentences for laiwbreaking  are based on three principles  of justice: punishment, re-  thlabilitation, and deterrence.  The present system falls far  short of all three goals, and  neither one, nor two, nor a  score of fredwheeling "youth  ombudsmen"  would  do  much  to:. solve the problems created  by inadequate laws.  Needled .though youth workers may be���and many young  people in our community seem  to think they are���'they are not  and cannot be a panacea.

Sophisticated screening procedures must be draiwn up to  separate the violent from  the non-violent, the repeaters  from the first-timers, the  juvenile "felons" from those  guilty of lesser crimes.  Perhaps work farms are  needed for some, while others  could likely benefit (as surely  we all) from an Outwiarid  Bound type experience.  More school alternatives  like the FOCUS program at  (Princess TMargaret or the  special classes at Simon Cunningham are also required if  we are to deal properly with  juvenile misfits.     7,  Whatever      Ihe      proposed  help  Travel  for youths  Five Years Ago.

More   than   115,0000   young  Canadians could benefit from  summer   programs   sponsored  by    the    department    of   the  Secretary   of   State   in   1975.  Secretary of State Hugh Faulk  ner has  announced     renefwal  of   three   programs:    Student  Community    Services,    Youth  Hostels   and Travel   and   Exchange.  The Student Community .Ser  vices Program has  been expanded this year to give summer employment to 2,100 students. This program is designed  to support  and encourage    *���  the activities of volunteer or-    II  ganizations serving   the   com- J j  munity  by.enabling such or|"���*l  ganizations"; to   employ  young  people. Emphasis will be given  to  attract more native  youth  to the program. With asbudget  of $4 million in *1974, this program funded projects through  established voluntary organisations which provided a wide  variety   of Yjobs for   approxi-  matly 2,000 students and more  than 10,000 volunteers.  Budget of the 1975 program,  which will operate from May  5 to Sept. 19, is $5.7 million.  Interested voluntary organizations dan Obtain application  forms at regional offices of  the department in early Feb.  Deadline for receipt of applications is March 15.  Under the Youth Hostels  Program, approximately 100  hostels will provide accommo-  dlation _md 'cultural activities  for more than 100,000 young  travellers at a cost of $1 a day.  Those who wish to work as  they travel will have access to  jobs through a notification sys  tern operated in co-operation  with Canada Manpower Centres.  This program will operate  with a budget of $1,3000,000,  a increase of $200,000 over last  year. Application forms will be  available to hostel operators  from regional offices of the department of the Secretary of  State and must be received by  the department by May 1 or  six weeks before the proposed  opening date of the hostels.  The Travel and Exchange  program with a budget of $1,-  756,000 for travel by voluntary  groups has been increased' by  325,000 to assist young people  to learn about traditions and  ways of life in different parts  of the country. Preference is  given to student groups from  lofw-income areas or those who  are handidapped or geographically isolated. The funds pay  for travel expenses but participants do not receive payments under the program.  These programs are components of $67 million Federal  Summer Student Employment  arid Activities Program.  [["Senior Services  Information  &  Telephone Tree  886-7415  9 ajn.- 4p.m.  I  I  i!

FRESH LETTERS  Eklitor: Re the recent idea  of Gibsons expanding I wish  to comment as follows:  it would seem that Mayor  Larry Labonte bias grossly underestimated the intelligence pf  the inhabitants of Grant__an_s,  Soames Point, Hopkins Landing and Langdale. The original  idea of obtaining Port Mellon's  assessment tax is a good one.  It is a great pity that it was  not more tactfully presented.  Little wonder that we in the  outlying districts were upset  by Mayor Labonte's Kremlin-  like 'fait accompli.'  Let me pose a question.  What does the village of Gibsons have to offer?  (a) A council with little or  no initiative who, when presented with an idea regarding  the Port Mellon tax scheme,  approaidh it with all the subtlety of a herd of wild elephants wearing steel capped  boots.  Ob) A village where numerous dogs run unchecked.  (c) 'No restaurant for tourists or more important, residents. -   ���  (d) No interest whatsoever  in exploiting the marvellous  FREE publicity which Gibsons  receives from The Beachcombers.'  However, it is easy to criticise. On the other side of the  balance sheet we have very  friendly -people iri Gibsons. It  just seems a pity that a village with Gibsons potential is  left in the doldrums. I do not  mean to turn it into a chrome  and glassmenagerie ��� just  tidy up the place a bit and let's  have more, facilities.  For this Gibsons'must have  cash. Surely with a new approach from ali concerned the  problems of administrating to  the outlying districts could be  ironed out to the satisfaction  of all concerned. The money is  there ��� lets' go to it and work  together to make use of it.  ���R. GENTLES.  Editor: This letter is directed  at all the child minded adults  who attended last weeks'  nature show "The Life and  Times of Grizzly Adams.  Myself and four children attempted to see the first showing on Monday evening at 7:00  IWe were unsuccessful so I  promised the kids we would  tiy again on Tuesday night..  Well, we arrived at 5:30 and  proceeded to wait until 7:00  again. The line up wasn't long  at all and we were maybe 50)  feet from the front door. Need  less to say, we didn't make  that ^how either due to  thoughltleslg, inconsiderate,  idiots that (pushed in front, of  us.  .People would walk up to the  front of the line to see someone they khejw and there they  would stay. Then several  people just pushed in. front  wherever they felt like. After  watching this disgusting behaviour for about 20 minutes  I proceeded to ask people if  they iwould please move to the  end of the line as the people  in front of me and myself had  been standing there since 5:30.  One lady replied "Well I guess  we really should go to the end?'  but she didn't. I asked a very  well dressed man and his wife  in their fifties (without children) if they would please move  back and he replied in such  adult English as "So What,  Big Deal".  Finally at 7:00 (shoiwtime) at  least 50 people had pushed in  _rOnt of us and my kids and I  stood there until 8:45 to see  that show:  Coast News Jan. 29, 1975. 3  I have never seen such a  poor display of adult actions  in my life.

University of Victoria, on Fridby, January 24, to  discuss the preparation of the  questionnaire to be used in the  determination of public attitude affecting the appointment  of a district superintendent in  Sechelt jrichool district. .  Doctor .Kratzmann has a national repu/ta'tion for scholarship in the field of educational administration, and brings  an unusually wide background  to the task. He has many years  of interest and work in the relationship between boardls,  communities and superintendents of schools; and throughout his career in teaching has  been active in professional development arid welfare in  teacher associations at provincial and local levels.  He has served a�� the execu  tive director of the Alberta  (School Trustees association and  'was the first chairman of the  B.C. Teacher Qualification  board, deleted1 to that position  by representatives of (B.C.  teachers and school trustees. At  .various times he has served as  arbitrator for boards and for  teacher associations in salary  disputes, his last appointment  in that role being for the Victoria Teachers' Association.  With his reputation for impartial research the board is  Confident that Doator Kratz-  mahn will be able to develop  for this community a truly  meaningful questionnaire.

Referring to the school work  experience program, Superintendent R.R. Hannah told the  sohool board Thursday night  he's happy to see the ivory  tower being bridged with the  real world.  The program which allows a  student to go to school ;part  time for academic credits is  being incorporated' into the  school system.  Hannah told the board he has  already inter viewed 14 applicants and that it v/as time the  board formulated policies on  the matter.  In commending the program  Mr. Hannah said it in no way  resembles the occupational  type program and that it was  an excellent departure for  students to be exposed to what  goes on in the world.  'Students involved in the program would work part time in  a store, garage, or whatever  they. were interested in and  would be credited1 the same  as they would for a normal  course.  The student would be an  employee of the crqwn and  covered by workman's .compensation without the employ  er irtaking contributions. The  student does not receive any  remuneration.  The board is currently considering applications for a  work experience co-ordinator  who will conduct a feasibility  study on the matter  "Do not worry, do not  despair, Soon will appear  Bohemian Crystal Stemware" at Miss Bee's, Sechelt.

Smoking habits unchanged  Smoking habits of Canafdians  have remained relatively unchanged from 1972 to 1973, according to statistics released  by National Health and Welfare   Minister   Marc   Lalonde.  The latest figures show that  non-smokers outnumber smokers in Canada: 53 percent of  the population 15 yeats of age  and over does not smoke at all,  and 60 percent of the (population over 15 does not smoke  cigarettes regularly- that is,  every day.  A slightly greater percentage  of Canadians,women over the  age of 15 were smokers in 1973  (36.3 percent) than in 1972 (35.  7 percent), continuing a trend  evident since 1S65, especially  in the age group 15 to 19 years.  In 1965, 77.8 percent of Canadian girls in' this age group  were non-smokers, compared  to 67 percent in 1972 and 65.9  percent in 1973.  Of Canadian men over 15,  42.2 percent were non-smokers  in 1973, compared to 42.6 percent in 1972 and 34.8 percent  in 1965. The 57.8 percent of the  smokers male population in  K973 was divided as follows:  47.8 percent regular cigarette  smokers, compared to 47.4 percent in 1972 and 54.6 percent  in 1965; 3.8 percent occasional  cigarette smokers, compared  to 3.5 percent in 1972 and 3.3  percent in 1965; 6.2 percent  smoked only pipe and or cigars,  comared to 6.5 percent in 1972  and 7.3 percent in 1965.  From 1965 to 1972, the rising  percentages of women smokers  were outweighed by lower  rates for men, to produce lower over-all figures each successive year. The 1973 statist-  tics show a halt to this trend.  While the levels of smoking are  close to 1972 levels, the overall downward trend lias levelled off with marginal increases in many categories.  -1 &"***&��?*  .'���..', <���&.-..??*���  -���' ".n______    ' ���<���- ��������� ' ��� ��� _,_J_______j______________ii_____i________________i_______.^ ,v  DO IT NOW.

School ^trustee Joe Horvath

then "you might as well forget
it."        ;:■■'■■- ;Y.7;;.'y7

encouraging to see them break

school districts in the province.
"We believe it may achieve
the goal that after the final

support the choice, and to assume a personal comniittment
to work co-operativeily with the
superintendent and with other
involved groups to improve
local education.
"Allthough. the selection of
parent representatives is not
iaTn'easy task, their role in the
selection process  is   essential.
Ylt would include consulting

each of the four general areas

Committee members told the
board they realized a lot of
work was involved in the process of selection but time was
an important, factor.
School 'Board Chairman
.Betel* Precesky stated • the
board had discusse)d the idea
of public involvement months
ago but no action was taken
because it .was premature at
that time. He said that the Department of Education had not

erintendents but will do so in
the near future.
In icommentinig on Horvaths

Cougars plan shootathon  subject for  Energy Board  The British Columbia Energy Commission may have a  hand in gasoline prices on the  Sunshine Coast. This appears  possible according to information received by Don Lockstead, MLA for this area. It is  expected a report may be made  to  the  government  shortly.  A survey reveals regular  gra'die gasoline retails for 70.9c  per gallon in Gibsons and Sechelt. Towards Madeira (Park  and Pender Harbour prices are  1 and 2 cents per gallon lower,  with one station selling at 65.9  cents per gallon. In the Vancouver area regular grade gasoline prices range from 52  Cents per gallon in the Bur-  naby-New Westminster area to  as high as 67 cents per gallon  at some stations in Vancouver.  The retail price of gteusoline in  Port Hardy is 71.9 cents per  gallon.  The wholesale price varies  slightly   among   the   oil   cotai-  pianies. All oil companies, however, have the same differential between Vancouver and  the Sunshine Coast, 2.5 cents  per gallon. The price differential between Vancouver and  Port Hardy is 3.5 cents per  gallon. Assuming that costs of  retail operation, labor, rent,  business expenses, taxes, etc.,  are approximately equal between Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast only 2.5 cents per  gallon of the difference in retail prices is attributable to  cost differences.  Not all service stations pay  the same wholesale price.  Those associated with independent non-major brand companies are; able to purchase gasoline from . refiners at a discount, usually between 3 and' 6  cents per gallon. The profusion  of indiependents in the Burnaby  Newt Westminster area accounts in part for the lower  price in that area. On the Sunshine Coast, there are, no independent brand stations competing with the major brands.  Service station margins (difference between the whelesaile,  price, including taxes, and! the  retail price) are 15-17 cents  per gallon in Gibsons and Sechelt compared to iriargins  from as low as 6 to a high of  16 cents per gallon in Vancouver. The major consideration  is that in the Vancouver area  motorists have a range of price  service packages from which  to choose. This range of choice  is virtually absent on the Sunshine Coast.  The retail margins are generally higher on the Sunshine  Coast for two reasons ��� (1)  ithe Jack of competition, both  among dealers and among major oil companies and (2) volume per station is low because  there are more stations on the  Sunshine Coast than the amount of motoring traffic warrants-.  This problem of a lack of effective price competition is not  peculiar to. the iSunshine Coast  area and solutions are being  considered under a provincial  Qrdier-in-Council requesting  the British Columbia Energy  Commission to advice the Lieutenant-Governor on measures  it considers advisable in the  public interest concerning the  price and supply of gasoline or  other petroleum products within British Columbia. A report  will be made available to the  government soon.  Elphinstone Cougar basketball team is holding another  shoot-a-thon this year and play  ers are already out canvassing  pledges.  iLast year's pleidges raised  $21,000 and ranged from 5  cents per shot to $1 per shot.  Eaich player receives pledges  for each basket he scores with  in an alloted two minutes. If  a pledge of ltOc per shot is  made and the players scores 20  baskets then the pledger pays  $2 to the shoot-a-thon.  All the pledge money will be  deposited in the Elphinstone  Athletic Council account and  will be used for teaan travelling costs. The temporary lack  oif facilities at Elphinistone has  left the Cougars without a  home gymnasium and for the  second year in a row the teams  must travel to all their games.  Last year the teams spent  $3,500 in travelling to games  and this money does not include the $1.50 per trip each  Dumps open  Garbage (dumps wiM. not be  closed to the pufblic, the Regional iboard-decided in a committee meeting last week.

It was well  flayed game by the Cougars  with Doug Dybotia scoring 12  points.  Next week the Senior Boys  will travel to Agassis for tour  nament.

A security deposit is the money held by the landlord as security  for the payment of rent in arrears, or for damages done to the residential premises.  the landlord may collect only one security deposit, of not more than half of one month's  rent. And he may collect this deposit only when the tenant first rents the premises.  A landlord may not collect the last month's rent in advance,  in addition to the security deposit.  What can't the money be used for?  A tenant who gives notice of termination must pay the last month's rent in full.  The tenant may not expect to pay only half of the last month's rent, and demand that the  landlord apply the security deposit to the balance owing,  unless both the tenant and landlord so agree in writing.  What happens to the deposit when the tenancy is terminated?  When a tenant leaves the premises undamaged and in  a reasonable state of cleanliness, there's no problem���  the landlord simply returns the full deposit and the  accrued interest of 8% per year, within 15 days.  Where a dispute arises, every attempt should be made  by both parties to resolve it in an amicable and reasonable manner.  Where an amicable agreement cannot be reached  within 15 days, the landlord must turn the security  deposit and the interest over to the rentalsman. A form  for submission of the landlord's claim may be obtained  from the Office of the Rentalsman and must be used  in all cases. If the landlord's claim is less than or equal  tothesecurity deposit the rentalsman will then mediate  or adjudicate oh the disposition of the money held by  him in trust.  If the claim of the landlord is larger than the money  held by the rentalsman, the landlord may elect to take  court proceedings, but he must do so within a two-  week period set by the rentalsman. If he fails to take  court proceedings within that period the rentalsman  will pay the money to the tenant upon an application.  mmxemtim  If you have questions regarding the Landlord and Tenant Act, please write to us.

"It's not the $2 that's annoying them" secretary-treasurer  Roy Mills told the school board  "it's the fact that they weren't  told,"  But the course may have  been thrown a lifesaver. Mills  said that the department has  again revised criteria for  grants and the course may now  be eligible for money in a conservation and environmental  category.
