Boys plan fo repair damage  Two juveniles, aged 14 ahd  16, have admitted destroying a  number of flowering cherry  trees along S'echelt's Cowrie  Street.  The two, whose names have  not been released, told police  Monday they were ^sponsible  for breaking the branches off  about six trees between 2 and 3  a.m. Sunday morning. They  also admitted to damaging a  late-model car in Selma Park,  RCMP reported.  Sechelt village clerk Tom  Wood said meetings were held  with police, probation officer,  two aldermen and the offenders have agreed to purchase  and replant the trees that were  damaged. The youth and their  parents apologized to the village and the boys told council  they would tend the trees all  summer.  They will appear in juvenile  court at a later date.  This rooster has to go  The rooster has to go.  That's the opinion of Sechelt  council after receiving a complaint about a noisy rooster  that allegedly wakes up the  neighbourhood every day at  the crack of dawn.  ISechelt Clerk Tom Wood  told council last week he had  sent a letter to the owner of  the rooster, Roy Wigard of Por.  poise Bay Road, askingbim  would he please get rid of the  chicken.  "That brought Mr. Wigard  into the office in a rather bad  mood," the clerk said. Apparently, he wanted to keep the  bird.  But Mayor Nelson put his  foot down. "Once somebody  complains it's our job t0 take  action ��� it's a residential zone  and it doesn't allow screaming  chickens."  "We don't  have  any choice  in the matter -_ it's a clear con  trayention of the bylaw," add.  ed Alderman Watson.  ISo the rooster has to go.  Asked for a reaction on the  matter, Mrs. Wigard said the  rooster would probably be given t0 a friend.  She said there were a few  hens around but "we haven't  been getting any eggs for  months now anyway."  PLEASANT SURPRISE  Rev. David Brown said he  was pleasantly surprised Monday evening. As he and Mrs.  Brown were having dinner,  members of the ladies auxiliary to the Gibsons Legion  brought over a box of dates  and nuts and various other items, j  It was a little gift for the.  Brown's 30th wedding anniversary.  / Shore: -aMveia.

Tug with barge  runs aground  A 30 ft. tug, a 100 ft. barge  carrying pre-fab trailers and  a smaller aluminum vessel ran  aground on a Wilson Creek  area beaeh late Tuesday night.  Reports indicate the tow  lines between the tug and  other vessels became tangled  and rough weather forced the  three vessels on shore.  Wilson Creek resident Ron  Breadner said he caane home  late Tuesday night and saw  the vessels floundering near  shore in front of his home.  He notified BJQMIP and  when he later went aboard to  check on the safety of the  crew he found the tug abandoned.  The barge was pulled off at  about 4 a.m. Wednesday, and  crews are working today to  straighten the tug which will  be pulled free at high tide.  Sechelt RCMP said the owners of the vessels have not  yet been located.  YOUR NEW SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT is 47 year old John  Denley.

Kurt Hoehne told council at  Monday's meeting, "there is  so much garbage along the  roads." He said with the tourist season coming the village  should be spruced up a little.  Council is particularly concerned about contractors and  builders leaving dirt and old  lumber along the side of the  village roads. Aid. Hoehne and  Aid. Bill Laing, head of the  public works committee, will  look around the village and  try to get things cleaned up.  Donate your blood April 25,  Health Centre, 1-5 and 6:30 -  8:30 p.m.  Sechelt mill  rate to rise  by 25 percent  Sechelt residents are facing  a 25% mill rate increase this  year. This was revealecB last  Week as Sechelt council gave  third reading to a budget bylaw that finance committee  Ernie Booth says "provides  e_ctra money for cost factors  beyond our control."  /YTheMnal budget, to be adopt  ed'at council's next meeting,  will increase from last year's  18 mills to 24 mills for 1975.  Alderman Booth indicated  that inflation was playing  hayoc with the budget. He told  touncil a; four mill indr^se  HwbtrJft^ tovie*^ tl__:^bp(e|^^'^ut  ���;V- "it leav^7^t7^t^c*!ei for anything else." Y  'He said- an extra two mills  would provide for anything  else that may come up.  "Even with the 24 mills some  thing in the budget may  change," he added.  The finance committee chairman said it was costing the  village one mill for interim  financing for tax revenue  money to the school district.  School taxes are collected by  the village but the tax money  is paid out to the school district before the village collects  it. The money must be borrow  ed and ends up costing the viL  lage one mill for interest.  Mayor Harold Nelson said  the interest is much greater  this year because of the increased school budget. "That's  one mill down the drain," he  told council.  Counicil also gave three read  ings to a rate bylaw that gives  3 mills to the regional district  and 21 mills to the municipality.  cepted the position of Cavalcade co-ordinator.

A_new study of employment patterns in the Canadian banking industry is to be carried out as an International Women's Year project.  The project is jointly sponsored and financed by the  Advisory Council on the Status of Women (ACSW) and  the Canadian Bankers' Association (CBA), the industry  association of the chartered banks, and will be undertaken by Marianne Bossen, a Winnipeg consulting economist.  A major objective of International Women's Year is  -to promote equality for women in society and to create  an -awareness of career opportunities open to them on the  basis~of "equal opportunity for equal commitment."  In 1969, the banks employed just oyer 86,400 people  and about 65 percent were women. By mid-1974 the total  had jumped to about 115,000 and 71 percent were women.  Banks have encouraged women at all levels to move  up in the banking system to more responsible positions.  For instance, the extensive educational program for  bank employees carried out through the Institute of Canadian Bankers has close to 10,000 students ��� and almost  45 percent are women.  It should be remembered that at one time the idea  of a women involved in financial transacting was not an  accepted way of life. Today practically every bank has a  bevy of women, young, middle-aged and possibly well on  in years, transacting a business which was once the  strict domain of stern looking males.  Sturnus Vulgaris  For most of the year the song of the starlings is.as  melodious as the squawk of an angry parrot, the bleat of  a sick goat, the squeak of a rusty hinge ��� combined. Even  a crow sounds downright musical in comparison. He's  called the Common Starling ��� Sturnus Vulgaris ��� and  vulgar he certainly is with his dumpy appearance, his  messy nesting habits and his objectionable pushiness in  competing with more desirabe species. You don't really  expect 'him to have a beautiful voice ��� it would be quite  incongruous. He sounds like he looks.  But then comes spring ... And it might be said that  even the nightingale in all his glory was ever heard to  sing like the starling in spring! .. .3  "What bird is this?" you ask.' "Is it the lark? the bluebird? the sweet thrush?" ... No. Believe it or not, it's  the Sturnus Vulgaris ��� the Common Sterling. For courting purposes only, he's mimicking the lovely songs of  these birds ��� and he does it to a very good effect. At  least, it seems to have the desired effect, judging by the  alarming proliferation of this species in North America.  It's a welcome change ��� but isn't it annoying to  think that all the time he was squawking and squeaking,  he could have done better? It makes you think he just  wasn't trying ��� until courting time came along. And.you  just wait ��� as soon as that messy nest is full of screeching little ones, he'll fly off to the nearest treetop, throw  back his head, open his yellow beak and say "SQUAAAr  AWK!" ... And that will be his song until next spring.  There would seem to be a lesson in there somewhere.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  Sechtelt'is tax rate was raised  ���from 14 mills to 18.

Government and industry cooperation aimed at establishing  (communities close to primary  industry activity was called  by G.L. Draeseke, president of  the Council of Forest Industries of British Columbia.  Draeseke told the annual CO  FI meeting at the Hotel Vancouver: "I think the time has  come for our society, as . a  whole, to take a new initiative  to make it possible for our  workers and their families to  enjoy active and satisfying  lives in the areas close to our  industrial activity."  The forest industry, he said,  has  a problem of "veiry high  turnover of labour in our more  remote locations. We have had  severe labour shortages, and  these will become even worse  when our markets recover."  The COFI president called for  government support for the  following proposals:  1. The provincial government  in consultation with industry,  should instruct the Environment and Land Use Secretariat  or other suitable agency, to identify locations which can sustain a reasonable sized work  force in primary industry of all  kinds _ not just the forest in  dustry. With secondary employ  ment and dependents We  -should aim for communities of  a thousand or more people.  These locations should be additions to existing settlements,  wherever possible, or undeveloped land if ther is no good  alternative/  2. A responsible and effective authority set up by the  province in conjunction With  industry should get the support  of CMHC and create the infrastructure for the towns by  subdividing the land and providing the services. This  should be professionally planned to produce really, attractive communities, of the best  contemporary standard. Paved  streets and access roads should  be the rule.  3. CMHC should provide 95  percent mortgages for home  construction, supported by underlying guarantee given by  the authority. CMHC should  also provide 99 percent mort-���-  gages for commercial construe  tion, with limited guarantees,  if needed.  4. The authority should ensure that adequate commercial  establishments are created and  available at reasonable rates.  This includes hotel and room  and board facilities. It should  also see that ��� houses are con  structed and offered for sale on  attractive terms. Obviously the  number and type built will be  a matter for seasoned judgement in each townsite. The  sale price should'not exceed  the costs of sub-division and  only be sold to individuals and  not to any party for the purpose of rental. Houses should  be- available to employees of  service industries on the same  terms as to employees of the  primary industry or industries..  5. Industry employers should  give to each of their employees  who buys a house a guarantee  that, in case of termination of  employment for any reason,  the employer will, if requested.  buy the house for a sum equal  to the amortized mortgaige balance plus 5 percent.  6. The communities will be  villages or districts as appropriate. If aNmayor and aldermen  are not already there, the new  population should elect their  own as soon as possible/These  should not be appointed.  7., First class health care is  an essential component "of such  communities if we expect peo-  <ple to live and raise their fatnil  ies there. Fortunately, the mac  hinery exists to provide this.  A community Health Centre  with a full time doctor and  nurse and a few beds will provide for routine care.  Go fo church on Sunday  SUPERIOR?

Your MLA. writes:  (BY  DON  LOCKSTEAD)  I would like to deal with 3  important issues now before  the Legislature.  The Provincial government's  policies on the export of B.C.  natural gas were supported at  the recent federal-provincial  conference on energy prices,  The B.C. delegation, led by  Premier Barrett and Attorney-  General Alex Mac-Donald, got  assurances that -.lie -.- :port price  of our gas will be increased.  While the new rates have not'  been made official by the National EJnergy Board, after August 1 the price for 1,000 cubic  feet will rise from $1.00 to  $1.60 or $1.60. This increase is  a first step toward the true  value of our natural- gas in the  American market. The price of  gas will not be increased for  B.C. consumers.  As promised in  the budget  speech, one third of this additional revenue from higher ex_ -  - port prices will be directed to  the municipalities of B.C. Early  estimates suggest that $20,000,-  000   will  be  divided   amongst  local   councils   in   addition  to  existing programs. Another effect of increased export prices  is the planned construction of  an oil refinery to be operated  by the B.C. Petroleum Corporation,  a   Crown  agency.  This  will be a major addition to the  industrial   base   of   B.C.   The  NDP   government   has   ended  the era of "fire sale prices" and  is now getting a fair return for  the natural gas and other resources owned by the citizens  of B.C.  Another proposal in the budget is a $5,000,000 fund to be  established for world food relief. Of this amount, $1,000,000  will be for direct aid and $4,-i  000,000 for grants to match  funds raised by private agencies.  A serious subject raised in  the legislature involves the  threat posed to B.C. by the  American ' nuclear submarine  base at Bangor, Washington,  60 miles from Victoria. This  base is part of the Trident missile program of the American  defence system. The base will  be a prime target in' the event  LIFETIME MUFFLERS  A special feature in the recent Canadian Consumer magazine will interest the car  owner, and especially the prospective car buyer.

In such a case, the U.S. military sees the population of  B.C. as "collateral damage."  The     provincial    government  gave financial assistance to  B.C. delegates who attended a  conference working towards a  nuclear-free Pacific. There is  now a resolution before the legislature calling for provincial  opposition to the Trident missile base in particular, and nu_  clear growth, in general. I will  support that resolution wholeheartedly in the interest of  public safety and environmental protection.  TUNNEL OF LOVE  TAY HERE  Green utility poles next!  ^?��fr.i#d-  |j^ Any reduction for parti--?  The manager of MacMillan  Bloedel's wood preserving division says North Americans will  soon start seeing long lines of  green utility poles beside highways and streets.  According to Doug Double-  day, it's the result of a new  wood preserving treatment  plant the company has installed at its former pole division  on the Fraser River, which produces 50,000 poles a year for  the Canadian and U.S. markets.  Doubleday said the new treat  ment plant began using a copper based waterborne salt solution to treat its poles for the  first time this year, substitut  ing it for traditional oil-based  preserving treatments.  In addition to. giving the  poles a far longer lifespan, the  new treatment turns the poles  green because of its copper con  tent. This eventually mellows  over the years to a sort of olive  green.

OASTAL TIR  Gibsons  886-2700 4    Coast News April 23, 19.5  Judge finds  recommendation  not suitable  ���T. S. P. Johnson, Provincial  Court judge for Powell River  and the Sunshine Coast says  there is probably not much  value in allowing the press to  report on second offender juveniles.  Judge Johnson was comment  ing on a recomendation made  earlier by a sub-committee of  the Sunshine Coast justice  ���council suggesting that press  coverage of juvenile trails  ���should be allowed if the juvenile has been convicted of a previous offense.  The committee based its recommendation on the idea that  public exposure through the  media would cause juveniles  to be accountable to the community and would also encourage parents to feel more responsible for their childrens'  behaviour.  At present it is unlawful to  publicize names or details of a  juvenile offender unless with  -special permission of the court.  Judge Johnson said an infor  mal situation closed to the public and press was a much better atmospnere to get to the  root of the juvenile's problems  He felt delinquents would be  less candid knowing the situa  tion was going to be made pub  lie.  ORPHEUM    LOTTERY  Tojp prize for the second Orpheum Lottery has been boosted  to $120,000, it was announced  ���by Lawrence Jolivet, lottery  dharnman, who added that a  total of $200,000 will be won by  ticket holders. Aim of the lottery is to sell 500,000 2 dollar  tickets, 60,000 more than during the successful Save-nhe-  Orpheuim Lottery last year.  Funds raised in the sales drive  will go tcjwards the $3.2 million cost of renovating the fam  ed Orpheum Theatre on Granville Street, Vancouver.  Kite flyers are warned  Youngsters .who fly kites  near electric power lines are  inviting trafgedy, warns E.  Hensch, iSechelt district manager of B.C. Hydro.  "It wasn't long ago that a  Lower Mainland man was fatally injured,- apparently )while  attempting to free a kite from  a high-volta'ge line," he cautions.  "Children should never try  to reanove a kite from a powerline, pole or transmission  tower," Hensch says. "And  ' that goes for adults as well.  Only trained linemen have the  experience 'and equipment to  work near high-voltaige lines  in. safety.  "Even a damp cord can act  as an electrical conductor if  the cord brushes a powerline.  So play safe. Better to lose a  kite than risk very serious injury."  Each year kites cross power-  lines, often causing widespread  power interruptions and inconvenience to the public as well  as danger to the youngsters  flying them.  B.C. Hydro urges all parents  to cut out the following Kite  Flyers Code, 'and impress on  their children the necessity to  observe these simple safety  rules.  ���Fly kites only in open fields  or parks, well away from pow-  erlines, transmission towers  and poles.  -���Use perfectly-dr!y string, never wire or metallic string.  ���Never try to remove a kite  should it catch on a powerline,  tower or pole. Release the cord  before it strikes a powerline.  ���-Don't use any metal in making a kite.  ���Don't fly a kite on or near a  road or highway.  ���Never fly a kite in wet or.  stormy weather.  ���Have fun ��� but always obey  the safety rules!  Sewers needed, Watson says  Alderman Norm Watson says  Sechelt stinks. Some parts of  it, at least.  Watson told council last  week it was high time to install sdwers in the village because some areas did not smell  too nice. He said he has taken  a walk around the village and  referring to one spot in particular said "the area stinks."  Watson also told council he  had informal talks with the Sechelt Indian Band and indications were that they would be  willing to hook into the! villages proposed sewage system.  Watson said the reserve's outfall and treatment is not up to  be to the advantage of the  modern standards and it would  band to improve their facilities  He said the Band could either  improve existing facilities or  plug into the village treatment  plant.  "I assume they have discussions on it and assume they  would join us,"  Watson  said.  He added he could not figure  out ah equitable cost because  he   could   not  find  out   how  many   houses  were   presently  hooked up t0 the reserve's sew  age system.  Watson also suggested a 50  percent higher rate for commercial properties for both  frontage and usage fees. He  said he would like to keep the  residential sewage costs under  $100.  ''JCommercial people will  then in effect be subsidizing  residential," Watson stated.  Canyon closure  The Department of Highways anticipates that up to two  months of morning closures on  weekdays will be required in  the Fraser Canyon to complete  the difficult rock removal project at Hells Gate starting Apr  il 21. There will be some 15  minute closures this week to  permit ' preliminary,' scaling  work. Morning closures will be  from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.  iMc*nd��iy to Friday. Fifteen  minute closures will be requir  ed at other times to permit.  safe removal of loose material.

Dreams of  getting away from it all, escap  ing the rat race plaguing you?  Dave Stewart's Okanagan Back  Roads provides the perfect solu  tion.  Mile-by-mile details are giv  en of the best spots for camping, hiking, rockhounding, exploring, fishing hunting and  picnicking. The maps are many  and are clear, easy to read and  follow. There are many photos  showing the wildlife, scenery  and, points of interest. There is  practical information on road  conditions arid cautions to be  observed when driving the  backroads. <  Stewart writes of the country he knows well and loves. He  emphasizes that it's not only  one's original purpose for a  trip   to  the  backroads  which  makes it most memorable, but  the extra things one does. The  wildlife one sees, the berries,  mushrooms and wilds-lowers  discovered.

Gasoline prices variable  Sunshine Coast Gasoline  price variations have been  brought to the attention of  numerous authorities as the result erf an inquiry.  /The inquiry resulted in a  letter which has been sent to  offMals and publicotions. The  letter reads as follows:  "I am enclosing comparative  prices found during the week  of April 1, to April 8, 1975. As  you will note, as in previous  correspondence. to you and to  the BJC. Energy Commission,  the prices vary greatly in Gibsons and Sechelt to other areas  on the Coast  "The B.C.E.C.. said at the  time they had taken a survey  and were aware of the discrep  anoy in Gibsons anid Setchelt  areas.  "At this time many people  having signed the first registered letter to you are not satisfied with your actions on our  behalf. A great many other  citizens are now openly asking;  What are you intending to do  in regards to this irregularity  in price increase'  The following is the list o��  prices as of April 8, 1975.

The letter was written to  Don Lockstead. MLA for MacKenzie constituency as the result of a telephone conversation with him., Others receiving a copy of the letter are:  Premier D. Barrett Chairman  of BCEC. Action Line. Vancouver Province, Local Newspapers, Scott Wallace. David  Anderson and Jack Pearsall  M.P.  The letter was. signed by Mrs  Irene Jardine of Gibsons who  has been probing int0 gasoline  prices for some months.  In the.Jan. 25 issue of the  Coast News appeared a story  under the heading "Gasoline  Rate subject for Energy board."  Tfhe first two paragraphs contained the following information:  k<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 niade  to the government shortly.  "A survey reveals regular  grade 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 galion in the Bur-  naby-New Westminster area t0  as high as 67 cents per gallon  at some stations in Vancouver.  The retail price of gasoline in  Port Hardy is 71.9 cents per  gallon."  Coast News April 23, 1975    5  Salmon program  Beginning April 1, a completely new reward systetm  takes effect in the Georgia  Strait Head Recovery program.  Nosetagged chinook and coho  caught in the Georgia Strait  on or after April 1 will be pro  cessed under the '75 '76 system.  The Fisheries Service will  no longer offer a standard  three dollar reward for all  nosetagged salmon caught in  / Georgia Strait. Instead, the  fisherman's name is entered  in a draw for a $500 prize and  six prizes of $50 each. The 1975  -76 fiscal year will still be  divided into eight periods but  with seven prizes ajwarded per  period. Thus, Fisheries will  distribute a total of eight  prizes of $500 ' each plus 48  prizes of* $50 each. All prize  winners must answer a skill  testing question in order- to.  qualify for a prize.  The eight periods remain as  follows: April-May, June July,  August, September, October-  November, December- January,  February-March.  Fisheries Service still asks  both sport and commercial  fishermen in Georgia Strait to  check all chinook and coho for  a missing adipose fin. If the  adipose is absent, turn in the  head at a sport or commercial  head depot. Commercial depots  will still buy the fish head-on.  .The reward program still  applies only to nosettaggod  chinook and coho caught in  Georgia Strait  Club offers Hike No. 2  Anyone for hiking? That's a  always someone asking,  "Where shall we go" or "Hiow  do we get up there" Maybe this  series will give you some ideas  and get you looking for more.  If any one has ideas on this  subject Gibsons Wildlife Club  ���would be pleased to hear about  them. Phone 886-9949 and may-  foe we can pass the message a-  long.  This report covers Trail No.2  Trail No.l was published in the  Feb. 26 Coast News. Trail Np.2  starts at the cable vision but at  the top end of Gilmour Road,  off Cemetery Road. Park in the  gravel pit and follow the wires  up the hill. You will see a num  ber of roads going off in all  directions but follow the wires  and you won't go wrong. In a-  bout an hour or maybe a little  more, you should reach the B  & K logging road and by this  time you ^ are out of the trees  and  into   a   logged off  area.  Keep on following  the  wires  till the second set of antennas  is reached on an .old  logging  road running  parallel  to  the  B &  K.   Cross the road and  keep on going in the same general direction till you get into  tHe   trees   again.   When   the  ground begins to flatten off a  bit veer over to the right and  keep on going towards the top.  There   are   one   or   two   dips  dojwn and up on the way to the  top .but it is relatively easy  going     and     very     pleasant  through the trees. Approximate  time to the top is 4-5 hours and  about 2Ms to 3 down.  An alternative to this would  be to drive to the end of Cemetery Road, park the car in the  turn around area and go up into the cemetery. When faicing  the plots you will see a tape on  a tree on the left marking the  beginning of the trail. It is well  defined till you reach the top  of the first steep part. From  here to the creek follow the  tapes. Cross the creek below  the log bridge and then follow  the tapes till you hit the old  flume or shake bolt shoot coming down the mountain. This  will bring you to an old shake  cutters road that leads into the  B & K road. Just for a starter  why not go up this way and  come down the cable vision  road. Return to the car via the  B.C. Hydro right of way. It's a  round trip of about three hours  It is suggested that if the  Cemetery road trail is being  considered, it might be a  good idea to wait till spring  because the tapes are in pretty  bad shape andi need renewing.  This has been done to some  extent as far as the creek, but  beyond that there is little to  indicate where the trail goes.

More than 200 people paid  last respects to the former alderman and long-time resident of Gibsons who had undergone a kidney transplant  last November.  Winston Robinson was born  in 1941 at Alonsa, Manitoba,  a small town near the Riding  Mountains. At age two he  travelled by car with his parents and brothers to Vancou-  vre Island1 andi then to Gibsons.  The Robinson family's first  home in Gibsons in 1944 was  a house now remembered as  "the Thomas shack." Winston  received his schooling in Gibsons at the tinie when the  five or six student high school  /was under the principalship  of Stan Trueman.  He graduated1 from Elphinstone High in 1958 and during  the latter part of high school  and for a year after graduation he worked for Ed Anderson in Gibsons Hardware. He  left the hardware business  where he had learned propane  Service and installations and  then wenit to work in Port  Mellon until 1966.  In the same year he was  forced to spend six months in  a Vancouver hospital because  of tuberculosis. After recovering he /worked for the Unemployment Insurance Commission while his wife Marilyn,  whom he married during that  year, finished her degree at  UBC.  Upon returning to Gibsons  the Robinsons purchased Earl's  Agencies at the head of the  government wharf which' later  became known as Winston's  Sporting Goods. This business  wlas sold in 1971 and. Winston ,  started his own propane ser-  WINSTON  ROBINSON  vice ��� W. Robinson Sales and  Service.  Also in 1971 Winston was  elected to Gibsons council for  his first two year term. He  was re-elected in 1973 but  had to retire a year later due  to ill health.  While on council he served1  on various committees including water and planning. He  was deputy mayor and also  served as an alternate representative on the Regional  Board. He was a member of  the Mt. Elphinstone Masonic  Lodge, treasurer for the forv  mer Gibsons Chamber of Cont-'  merce, a member of the Kiwanis Club and past master  councillor - and winner of the  Chevalier award for services  with DeMolay.  While active in many things  Winston's loves were" farming  and fishing. The Robinsons  were always known as excellent sports fishermen. One  July 1 Salmon Derby the Rob-,  insons took three out of the  four prizes and Winston managed to pull in a 28 pounder  even after his reel fell into  the water.  Winston leaves his . wife  Marilyn, a son WintonJr., and  four brothers, John and Godfrey of Gibsons, and Charles  and Carman of Vancouver.  opposes manna  v 'Sechelt council has objected  to a proposed marina on Porpoise Bay because of the exces  sive size planned.  The recommendation resulted from a committee meeting  last week one of 13 recommend  ations amending the new  planning bylaw 146.  Both the bylaw and the mar  ina application were discussed  at a public hearing last month.  The proposed marina did not  receive favourable reaction  especially from residents in the  Porpoise Bay area.  One of the major objections  to the marina amplication submitted by Len Van Egmond of  Halfmoon Bay Developments  Ltd. was the .commercial zon-  Movie News  California Split Is a comedy-  drama about games of chance  starring    Elliott    Gould    and  George Segal,  playing at  the  Twilight Theatre Wed., Thurs.,  Fri., at 8 p.m.  The film is considered Director Robert Altaian's best since  M-A-S-H and this time he has  again gone all out to present  simple crowd-pleasing enter,  tainment. Audiences who loved  the gambling in The Sting will  no doubt enjoy this . contemporary yarn about two offbeat  compulsive gamblers who play  their hunches rather than dissect their game.  Gould and Segal play extremely well off each other  thanks to Airman's macliine-  gun-fire pace and . Joseph  Walsh's peppy dialogue. The  film is rated Mature.  Playing Sat., Sun., Mon. is  That Darn Oat, a Walt Disney  feature starring Hayley Mills,  Dean Jones, Dorothy Provine.  Roddy McDowall and Elsa  Lanchester.  The story involves a couple  of kidnappers with murder in  their hearts. Plays Sat. at 2  p.m. and Sat., Sun., and Mon.  at 8 p.m.  ing aspect that would give the  facility an unlimited size.  Both residents of the area  and environmentalists feel the  acoustics and tidal flushing of  IPorpoise Bay would cause  noise and water pollution.  With the present application  rejected Sechelt council will  request more detailed plans  from the developer showing  physical specifications of the  project.  In the meantime, third reading has been given to the new  zoning byialw and it will now  go to the provincial government  for examination.  Fishermen, this  means you  Do you consider yourself to  be 0he of the better fishermen?  The Gibsons Wildlife Club  will hold their annual fishing  derby at Ruby and Saginaw  Lakes May 11.  The derby starts at daybreak  Sunday and weigh-in time is  2:30 p.m. at Ruby Lake. There  are many trophies and prizes  for the kids. The derby is open  to everyone.  The club reminds you to renew your fishing license if you  haven't already done so as last  year's expired April 1.  The Wildlife Club has also  announced the winners of the  C.I.L. shooting sports program  awards:  Pat Horvath _ expert crest  standing    ,  Tim Cotton - silver and gold  crest  Steven Hoops - silver crest  John MacFarlane - silver  crest  David  Atlee  _  bronze crest  Dana Whiting - bronze crest  Academic lack  creates problem  Lester   Peterson,    literature  teacher at Elphinstone Secondary,   says   that   non-academic  students   who   wish   to   enter  . a technical school after gradua  tion may not be accepted because of a lack of aicademic  courses.  Peterson and six other teachers in the district presented  briefs to school trustees last  week outlining the present status of high school English in  this district.  Peterson said non-academics  are having problems getting into schools like BCIT because  academics are filling the positions. Consequently students  are struggling desperately to ���  grab a few academic courses  in high school but they're not  meant for it;  "It's a pity, unless we can ,  influence our post-secondary  schools, that students are push  ed into courses they're not  meant for because they have t0  comply," the Elphinstone teacher said.  He also criticized universities for regimenting students by  forcing them to take special required courses.  "English at UBC has the  highest slaughter rate especially if the student doesn't have  Lit 12", Peterson told the trustees  Lit 1_ is an elective English  course offered at Elphinstone.  and in alernate years at Pender  Harbour High. The course surveys literature from historical-,  philosophical, psychological,  and sociological perspectives.  Virginia Douglas, head of  Elphinstone's English department, said it was necessary to  give today's students a multimedia approach because many  of them are lost with text  books and printed symbols.  That school site!  "Sechelt school trustees are  still hunting around for the  perfect site for a new junior  secondary school.  The board recently sent a  letter t6 Sechelt council asking  their opinion on a ten acre  parcel of land located in an  area north west of the Sechelt  Elementary school.  'Sechelt Aldermen all agreed  it would be a fine site except  that the proposed new highway would be going right  through that area.

Have,any suggestions ?  Send them along to the Energy  Waste "Watcher at Information  EMR, 588 Booth Street, Ottawa  KIA 0E4.  Whe electric range offers  energy saving opportunities  with little effort. Here are just  a few tips In the long run oven  Cooking is less expensive than  cooking on top of the stove.  Why? Because the surface elements stay on continuously  when they're in use while an  electric oven element is on for  only part of the time. For the  rest it coasts on heat retained  hy the oven insulation. You  might try doing an entire meal  in the oven, with fish or meat,  potatoes and vegetables. Here's  a favorite:  Oven Feed for Four  4 lbs. cross rib, blade or rump  roast  2 packets dry onion soup mix  4 potatoes  4 carrots  4 small whole onions  1. Place meat, soup mix, and ._  to % cup water into clay baker  or tightly covered casserole  dish  2. Set oven at 300 and cook  for 2 hours  3. Remove from oven, place  vegetables inside baker and  cook for another lij_ hours  By the way, it isn't necessary  to preheat the oven for foods  requiring more than an hour's  cooking time. For shorter cook  ing times, ten minutes is ample  preheating.  If you have several dishes to  cook at slightly variant temper  atures,  say 325,  350,  and 375  degrees, pick the average temperature (350) to cook all three  and remove each as it's done..  But don't open the oven door  to peep. That will waste about  a fifth of the oven" heat.  Frozen   meats   and  fowl  will  need less cooking if thawed in  the refrigerator first.  For roasts or other foods thlat  require long cooking times, the  oven can be turned off for the  last half hour or so. There will  be enough retained heat to com  plete the roasting job. As far as  ovenware goes, glass or ceramic transfers heat better than  metal,, and will allojw you to  lower the oven setting by 25  degrees from the cooking temp  erature  given.   Aluminum   attracts   heat   better   when   it's  clean, and shiny.  And just a few words about  pots and pans for top-of-range  cooking. Pots should have well  fitting   covers,   straight   sides  and flat bottoms to capture the  most   heat   possible  from  the  range It's a good energy-saving  idea to use the right size pot  for the range element, with the  bottom of the pot covering the  element    but    not    extending  more than an inch beyond the  energy and time savers if pro.  outer ring.  Pressure cookers are good  perly used.  A reader information service  courtesy of Energy, Mines and  Resources, Canada.  "This is a fascinating game.

Len Van Egmond and Halfmoon Bay Development Ltd.  has made application to Sechelt council for a "planned  unit development" in the Porpoise Bay area.  Van Egmond, and Nanaimo  architect Robert Boyle, made  an audiovisual presentation to  ! council Wednesday night of  last week outlining the advant  ages of multiple residence hous  ing over the traditional one  house-one lot concept.  The presentation explained  ^ that cluster housing will become a necessary concept in  the future as more people oc^  cupy available residential land.  The cluster housing would involve grouping a number of  units together with an area pf  open space used and maintained by all residents.    Y  Robert Boyle told council  the development would contain  5.75 units 'per acre as compared  to the four units per acre for  a traditional sub-division. He  ���said the village's tax base  would be the same for that pro  perty but the cost of developing the services such as sewage  water and roads, would be  much less.  As the development grows,  an adventure playground, a  marina, and commercial shops  could be incorporated into the  15.8 acre area.  Van Egmond indicated the  entire development would involve 91 housing units but  phase 1 of the project would be  one set of four units to test  the market.  He suggested that council  give approval in principle' to  the project and a land-use con  tract could be negotiated.  Alderman Norm Watson said  he has been wanting to see the  cluster housing concept for a  long time but he did .exjpress  concern over sewage being  dumped into Porpoise Bay.  Van Egtmond explained he had  two areas for sewage disposal  and a 20,000 gallon plant capacity that is "quite adequte to  handle the total development."  Council will obtain more information on the project and  take the matter under advisement.  Driftwood to  be swept up  In a recent speech G.L.  Deaeseke B.C. Council & Forest Industries president referred to the co-operative effort  aimed at solving the problems  of floating wood debris in coast  al waters which involves the  two senior levels of government and the forest industry.  "The co-operative program has  seen the establishment of a dis  posal site in Howe Sound, a  study which sets priorities for  action by various agencies, increased attention to these prior  rities by several agencies, a  start on sweeping programs,  and a new patrol in the Howie  Sound area," he said.  "Industry is spending $125,-  000 for the 1975 program, and  federal and provincial funding  of an expanded program has  been requested," he added.

DOCTOR'S OFFICE-  lO   Coast News April 23,1975  IN COURT  Three Gibsons youths were  each fined $50 fn Provincial  Court Thursday for consuming  liquor while under legal age.  James Peterson, Dale Underwood, and Derek Holland each  pleaded guilty to charges aris_  ing out of an incident March 8  in Granthams Landing when  "the trio and two other minors  were spotted drinking beer in  a parked' car.  Besides the fines, Judge JJS.  P. Johnson saidi he would re  commend to the superintendent of motor vehicles that  their licenses be suspended  three months,  Gavin Idler who "pleaded  guilty to driving with a blood-  alcohol content over .08% was  fined $300 and prohibited from  driving for three months.  Gui Baervoets was fined $300  and prohibited from driving  for three months when he  pleaded guilty to driving while  over .08%. He was charged  afiter a single vehicle accident  on Highiway 101 four miles  east of Earl's Cove on April 6  Alec M. Strain 20, was fined  a total of $500 and prohibited  from driving for six months.'  He pleaded guilty to two  counts of driving while under  suspension. He was stopped by  police Nov. 8 and Dec. 10, 1974  for causing excessive noise.  When police checked Strain's  license it was discovered that  a driving suspension had been  imposed Nov. 7 by the superintendent of motor vehicles.

"It's intended to be demeaning," Judge Johnson said," if  he would rather go to jail -- I  want t0 make it quite; clear  that people do not obstruct police officers in their duty."  Estabrook said if it was a  choice between putting in the  hours of work 0r jail he would  fulfill his probation obligations  Bob Fortunes  Inside Forecast  On Saving Energy With Insulation  Bob Fortune.  British Columbia's well known  TV weatherman.  Insulation:  a wise investment  in future savings.  Installing proper insulation in your  home is one of the very best ways  to cut heat losses, reduce heating  costs and conserve energy. What's  more, when you consider rising fuel  costs, an investment in insulation  today can be returned many times  over in years to come.  There's no question, if your house  is not insulated, you're paying far  too much for heating���simply because much of the heat is being  wasted. Or, if you have some insulation, but not the optimum  amount, adding more insulation  can still make a big difference to  your heating costs���and to the  amount of energy your heating  system uses.  "Revalues:  the best way to  measure insulation.  Since heat rises, the attic is naturally the greatest single area of heat  loss in your house and should be  given top priority when installing  insulation. For this area, B.C.  Hydro recommends enough insulation to achieve a value of at least  R-20, either as loose insulation  poured by hand or mechanically  blown into place, or as batts placed  between the ceiling joists.  When you use energy wisely,  you save a lot more than you think.  "It's true that doctors are high, but just think how expensive all their  Equipment is. Why, the waiting room magazines alone must cost a fortune!"  Atone time, the amount of insulation was usually expressed in inches  of thickness. But as new insulation  materials were developed, **R" (resistance) values were adopted as  the standard measurement of a  material's resistance to the passage  of heat, applicable to all types of  insulation, regardless of form,  shape or content. The higher the  "R" value, the less heat will escape  through the material. To achieve  an insulation resistance of R-20,  for example, requires either 6  inches of glass wool batts or 9Vi  inches, of glass blowing wool or  3/4 inches of urethane foam.  There are many different kinds  of insulating material available:  cellulose fibres,  polystyrene  and  urethane (rigid or foam), and of   __    ^~ _^^ ^^  course, glass wool in batts, rolls R f^ H lT[___#  and loose fill. Keep in mind, one *^-# ^^* ��� ��� ��� "^  material may have a higher "R"  Walls and floors:  important parts of  insulation system.  the  value per inch of thickness than  another, and one form of a material  may have a different "R" value than  another form of the same material.  Attic insulation:  for best results,  start at the top.  CUSTOMER ADVISORY SERVICE  B.C. Hydro recommends an insulation rating of at least R-12 for walls  and for floors above unheated  areas. In most cases, a proper level  of insulation for floors can be  achieved with little difficulty-  glass wool batts in the ceiling of an  unheated basement are installed  fairly easily. Concrete basement  walls can be readily insulated before finishing with rigid insulation  or glass wool batts as interior insulation, or with rigid insulation  outside the walls. To properly insulate basement walls, however,  the interior or exterior insulation  must reach from the top of the wall  down to at least 24 inches below  ground level.  For older houses with uninsulated  exterior walls, there are now effective methods of blowing certain  kinds of insulation into the walls  from the-outside through small  holes drilled into the cavities between the studs.  No matter where you wish to install insulation in your house, it's  always a good idea to talk to a  qualified insulation expert first.  Proper installation is essential and  involves data relating to vapour  barriers, ventilation and many  other factors. Further information  can be obtained from your local  contractor or through the Customer  Advisory Service of B.C. Hydro.  Because insulation reduces heat  losses, it's an excellent method of  conserving energy in the home.  When you look around, you'll find  that energy conservation doesn't  take much effort, but it can mean  more than you think���to your budget, to your environment, to your  future.  That's what's such a shame about  wasting energy: you're wasting  much more than just your money. Sunshine   Coast   service   guide  ACCOUNTANTS  CABINET MAKING  W.
