Don Lockstead said  some of the key issues for this  area in the December ill election announced by , Premier  Barrett Monday will be prdb-  lems dealing with the environment, transportation and communication, an_ the growth of  the Sunshine Coast area.  Lockstead said Tuesday that  there will definitely be pojpula-  tion growth in this area but  that growth must take place in  a rational and planned manner.    . '.''.,..'  He said if-re-elected he would  atteriipt to make more crown  land available to the people  who can not now afford to buy  land. He said this would assist  both older and younger people  and that interested individuals  could . obtain the land either  through a sixty year lease or  a lease to purchase.  On local criticism concerning  his government's recent back  to work legislation, lockstead  said, "I will admit I have had  some differences of opinion but  I voted (in favor of BiH rl46>  according to niy own opinion  and I believe the vote was favorable   towards   the   working  place M  The MLA said the McKenzie  constituency NDP will be holding a nominatipn: nieetih_. .thet  time and place to?-fae^ decided'  at an executive meeting later  this week.

Lockstead also said Premier  Dave Barrett "had earlier indicated that he would make every effort to visit the Sunshine  Coast in the event an election  should take place. He confirmed an earlier press report that  Transportation Minister Gar]  Liden would be visiting the  B.C. Ferries terminals in this  area but no date has been confirmed.  In the meantime, local  So-:  creds are also gearing up for v  the upcoming 38-day campaign.  A nomination meeting to elect-:  a  Socred  candidate  to  represent this constituency has b$en  hastily called for November ^  The riieeting will take place at  2:15Ypsn. in the!

School trustee candidates  state views at public meeting  Electioneering in this area  got off to. a hot start Monday  night when eight hopefuls for  the position of school trustee  faced the public with their  plaforms at an all candidates  meeting sponsored by the Sechelt Teachers Association.  Incumbent Joe Horvath,  seeking   re-election   in   rural  CANDIDATES for school board rural area B were given the  positions for both Gibsons and   chance to present their plat  forms at the STA sponsored all  candidates meeting a Elphin  stone   Secondary  Monday.  School   last  area B told the group of albout  40 people that he was in favor  of public discussions as long  as poHtickinK dadn't enter the  discussions. Be said' there was  no place tor politics in local  school affairs.  Oabrvath then went on to say  that the B.C. Teachers Federation is a self-interest group  which is seeking control of  education in this province.  Because the federation is getting no response from the Minister of Education, Horvath said  it is going through different  channels in order to get things  out of the school system that  will eventually put education  into the hands of the BCTF.  He said his biggest issue with  the BCTF controlling education  is that it is a group responsible  to no one but itself.  Concerning local school programs. Hbrvah said he felt a  strong belief in strengthening  the core curriculum before attempting to get involved in the  "frill" courses.  Incumbent Celia Fisher, also  seeking re-election in rural  area B said trustees should be,  willing to respond to the needs  amd,.desires of the,community.  She ^d she would Klre to see  more input into the school system by teachers and' the public.

Ferries  ships.  Langdale terminal acting  manager Barry Lynn said the  call was made to the. central  information office in Vancouver and was relayed to the terminal at Langdale. Apparently  the caller did not specify which  vessel the bomb was aboard so  all vessels in the , fleet were  searched.  Lynn said the Sunshine  Coast Queen was called back  to the wharf and all passengers  were evacuated. A thorough  search was made of the ship  and the vehicles aboard by ferries personnel and RJCMP. The  Langdale Queen was docked at  the time and also searched.  There    were    no    passengers  on board at the time.  A search was also made on  the Powell River Queen which  sails between Earls Cove and  Saltery Bay. No bombs were  found. Lynn said Tuesday night  as far as he knew no bombs  were discovered on any of the ���  other vessels in the B.C. Ferries fleet.  "Thank God nothing was;  found," Lynn said. The bomb  scare caused an approximate  one.hour delay in the sailing  time of the Sunshine Coast  Queen.  Director concerned because study called useless  Regional Board Director Peter Hoemberg says he is unhappy with the way the Sechelt vicinity study is developing.  He told Regional Board directors at a meeting Thursday  night that he has some major  concerns over the  study that  was initiated earlier to come  up with an overall development plan for the area bounded by Browning Road, Sargent  Bay, and Tuwanek Point.  Hoemberg indicated it would  be difficult to establish a community plan on a reasonable  basis without the influence of  to  Register  to vote  Chief Electoral Officer Ken  Morton has advised provincial  voters that in order to vote in  the upcoming election they  must be registered on or before Wednesday, November 12.  Eligible voters are urged to register without delay at any of  the provincial registration centres in their electoral district.

This announcement came  cfrom Don Lockstead's office in  Victoria after Lockstead had  met with the transportation  minister.  Lockstead said ina press release ThursidSay that Mr. Liden  has agreed to spend two days  in this area to inspect vessels,  meet with crews and other local groups on the Sunshine  Coast and in the Powell River  airea. The aim, said Lockstead,  is to improve ferry services in  this area.  Further' details will be . announced when arrangements  have been made. liden's visit  is expected to take place sometime within the next two  weeks.  No discussion on reports  One Regional Board member blasted fellow directors last Thursday night accusing the board of rubber  stamping   important   staff   reports   without   discussing  ,them.       '        ' "..  Director Kurt Hoehne, representative for the village of Gibsons criticised the Regional Board for quickly approving the report of the secretary-treasurer in  volving the past month's expenditures totalling $181,000.  The criticism came after the board had just completed  a lengthy discussion on what Hoehne felt were insignificant details in a report on the Sechelt vicinity study.  "We are approving a figure here," Hoehne said referring to the secretary-treasurer's report for the month of  October, "and we don't even know for what the money  was spent."  . He asked directors: "What is all this talk about details when we approve something like this without even  discussing it?"  Hoehne said members of Gibsons village council  approve the public expenditures item by item in an  open council meeting "and here we approve $181,000  and don't even discuss it."  In an earlier discussion concerning correspondence  to the board Hoehne also suggested that copies of letters be sent to directors ahead of time so each director  could be informed before the meeting. He said it would  save a lot of time during the meetings if directors knew  what the correspondence was about.  the board's own preconceptions  Commenting on the results  of a recent questionnaire asking residents within the boundaries how they would like to  see their area developed Hoemberg said the initial results of  the questionnaire showed some  apparent trends but because  the trends were contrary to  the thinking of some of he  board members: the Questionnaire was called: useless. He  said it was already obvious to  some board members how the  area was going to be developed.  "Let's just leave it at that."  Hoemberg said after making  his statements, "now that I've  opened up a can of worms."  Director Norm Watson hastily added: "Let's put the lid  on because I don't think that's  relevant at this discussion."  The Sechelt vicinity discussion originated when Watson  pointed out that the vicinity  study needs to study long term  goals concerning the development of the area but that more  urgent matters must also be  accommodated.  Watson said a report on a  recent vicinity study meeting  was not dear in indicating the  objectives of the study.  REMEMBRANCE DAY  a 10:45 a.m. Remembrance Day  service at the Legion HalL  Lunch will be served after the  service.  A parade will start outside  the Legion hall in Sechelt at  10:30 a.<m. and finish up at the  Cenotaph for an 11 a.m. service.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, G.bsons, B.C  A leaky System  It has to be said: Our bran'd new high school is a  dud.  The phrase "substantial completion" has completely  lost its meaning especially when that date is continuousy  moved ahead. One would also have to say that the general  contractors for the new Elphinstone have also lost their  credibility when it comes to finishing a major project.  Substantial completion was supposed to happen September 30. That's been changed two or three times since  that date and at a recent school board meeting building  supervisor Bob Rutter told trustees that the list of deficiencies "would be a book."  Not only is the building not finished but it has some  major flaws. It leaks.  It's come to light now that the drain tiles were not  installed properly and water is coming in through the  floor of the staff room. Furthermore the roof leaks because of cracks in the concrete.  Now combine the unfinished conditions of the school  and the poor workmanship with the overcrowded conditions of the school and. you end up with some pretty dis-  , satisfied students and teachers. One Elphinstone teacher  said it last week: morale is low.  To comment on this situation, we can only echo the  feelings of the editorial staff of Elphevents, Elphinstone's student newspaper:  "It is unfortunate that people who have had years of  ���  training in designing buildings and building them can  wot do the job they are paid to do."  We would also suggest to the school board that it.  seriously   consider   withholding   the  construction   performance bond. We, the taxpayers, supplied the money  for the school; those we paid to do the job certainly didn't  supply the performance.  Change the channel  Certainly the widespread violence on TV programs  has already drawn an avalanche of public protests. Countless speeches and published articles have been directed  against it. Government agencies are studying the problem. And even the networks and their advertisers are at  last beginning to recognize the extent of the public's discontent.  Yet a recent survey shows that of the ten most popular American TV programs (also seen in Canada) six  are crime dramas.  i; So are most viewers really all that upset by scenes  of gory mayhem and shoot-outs? Maybe not. Maybe it's  hecause many people actually enjoy such scenes that  they flock to theatres showing movies that dwell on them  in sickening detail.  Despite this undeniable fact, most decent-thinking  citizens prefer more wholesome entertainment. Parents,  particularly, worry about what their children see on the  tube. But how many good alternative program Choices  ���are there with prime-time viewing hours dominated by  one crime-drama after*another?  The situation won't change as long as the networks  find, this type of programming attracts large audiences.  For crime dramas can easily be mass-produced at relatively low cost, bringing handsome profits to the networks 'and their advertisers.  The best solution lies in cutting off the cash flow  that makes such programs possible. This will happen  when millions of viewers exclude from their shopping  lists those products which are advertised on crime show  commercials.  5 to 25 years ago  The first life saving search  initiator buoy, invented by Cap  tain W. Y. Higgs of Gibsons,  is on its way to the provincial  museum in Victoria.  The buoy was built for Captain Higgs by International Hydrodynamics Ltd. of Vancouver  builders of the miniature sub  marine- Pisces.

Higgs and the   life saving search initiator buoy  No cause for alarm  Premier Barrett's announcement of a province-wide price freeze has brought strong reactions from officials in the food store industry  which in turn has brought an element of alarm  to the public.  Several food store officials condemning the  price freeze have been quoted as saying that the  shelves would be "empty" by Christmas because  of the fact that many items are imported from  other provinces or other countries. '-���    ���  Some imported items may be increased in  price at the producer or ��� supplier level and the  grocery officials say they are not going to stock  items if they have to sell them at a loss. We can't  disagree with that. ;  However by saying the -shelves "will be "empty" we must take note of the semantics involved.  Realistically, grocery shelves may be short a few  imported items but we can hardly believe they  will be empty.  There's no cause for alarm.  itself and remain  attached to  the vessel by a long cable.

Initially  the buoy will be exhibited in  the Maritime Museum in Victoria and will 'be permanently  exhibited    in    the   Pro vincial  Museum when space has been  prepared.  Provincial scholarships raised  Education Minister Eileen  Dailly has announced that  grade 12 provincial scholarship awards will be boosted to  $500 from $200 ne__t year and  for the first time, local school  districts will have a say in the  allocation of some of the schoi  arships..  The minister said that also,  for the first time, scholarships  will be awarded on an individual school district basis rather  than at a province-iwide. level  "I am delighted to announce  this increase in scholarship awards ' as. added encouragement  and recognition of student ex  cellence by the provincial government," Mrs. Dailly said.  Mrs. Dailly said that under  the new program which is also  open to independent school students the number of scholarships available to each school  district in the province will be  v based oh four percent of the  grade 12 enrolment, with three  percent of the students receiving scholarships based on departmental examinations and  one   percent, being    awarded  scholarships on criteria established   by   the   local   school  board.  "For example, in a district  with 500 students in grade 12,  four percent of these students  or 20 students couldi-.-win scholarships Of these 20 students 15^  could receive scholarships bas  ed on departmental examinations while five could receive  scholarships   through  a selec  tion system devised by the local school district."  Under the old program all interested grade 12 scholarship  candidates wrote the examinations with the awards.based  oh a percentage of the total  number of students writing hte  exams in the province.  Mrs. Dailly said that basing  scholarships on four percent of  grade 12 enrolment means that  1,402 grade 12 students will be  eligible for $500 scholarships  next year. This year 11100 students received $200 provincial  scholarships.  * * $ $  Above average earnings are  yours as a Fuller Brush representative. Openings near  your home. Male or Female.

Cheque for disposal program  MLA   Don   Lockstead   and  Minister of Municipal Affairs'  James lliorimer have issued a  cheque for $50,000 to tihe Sim-  shine CoastyRpgional Board to  Kelp support the development  of a waste disposal program.  Tlie grant was issued under  the Natural Gas Revenue Sharing Act.  In a press release issued  from Don Lockstead's office  Tuesday it was noted that the  use of resources revenue tb  help support regional waste disposal efforts not only reflects  the provincial government's  commitm*�����.* to share the revenue bu. also the belief that  financial assistance to locai  government levels must'be responsible to the entire range of  local   government   obligations.  "We have therefore tried to  develop special programs to  meet real needs," the release  states.  Included among the Regional Districts' activities to be  undertaken are expansion oi  waste disposal sites, location  and development of new sites,  clearing and fencing, installation of monitoring and pollution control developments, incineration, and construction of  ex-filtration basins.

A penalty kick la4.3 in the  gasme gave the Scrilr���ithe victory and they c htinue as the  only undefeated team in division three.  In rugby action two weeks  ago. Gibsons displayed a strong  effort in the second half to  beat the Ex-Brits in Vancouver  by a score of 17 to 9.    j   ���  Despite weather conditions  Saturday the field was in quite  good shape. Gibsons opened the  ���scoring when lTony Gray don  broke with the ball from a  loose ruck and ran over three  men. With some good push  from the scrum he went in for  the try.'  This seemed to wake up the  Ex-Brits and they began pressing in Gibsons end. The Gibsons three line got a little  sloppy with the ball and the  Ex-Brits scored. The conversion was good. The Ex-Brits  continued taking the play to ���  Gibsons and scored on a penalty kick. Score at half time  was 9-4 in favor of Ex-Brits.  The start of the second half  saw some excellent rugby with  both teams tackling well but  with no one really breaking  through. But as. time went on  Gibsons began dominating  with some'fine three line runs  as well as having excellent  support from the scrum. Bobby  Johnson broke" through with  some fine running and scored  the try, A few minutes later  the Ex-Brits got a penalty and  John Crosby converted it making the score 11-9 for Gibsons.  With a good team effort Gibsons continued pressing and  Ken Johnson went in for the  final try of the game. John  Crosby made the conversion.  Final  score   17-9  for  Gibsons.  Gibsons Rugby Club will be  playing at home next weekend.  Saturday, November 1 against  the Scribes at 1 p.m at Langdale field.  Next weekend Gibsons attempts to get back on the winning track when they meet Simon Fraser University at the  University field in Burnaby.

SPECIAL TRAVEL FEATURE  An unlikely partnership  Coast News, Nov. 5, 1975.      5  It's an unlikely partnership:  a tug, a barge and a >stern-  wheelerYThe tug is the, M.V.  Stephanie, the sternwheeler is  the Phoebe Ann, and the barge  is the F3S. Together, they patrol the waters of Shuswap  .Jakes/just north of British Columbia's Okanagan Valley.  The, service started almost  30 years ago, with the Stephanie, a 30-foot tuig, pushing a  barge north from SicamOus to  carry supplies'to the two doz  en permanent residents who  live along the lake's northern  arms and logging equipment to  the logging' companies that  worked the surrounding country.  A few years later, the wooden barge was replaced by a  steel one and the Stephanie  continued her service along  Seymour and - Anstey Arms.  Just five years ago, the Phoebe  Ann, a 60-foot pad/dlewheeler  built to order, arrived on the  I  BT  scene to join the Stephanie.  Now the two boats and the  barge,  under  the  auspices  of  the Shuswiap Lake Ferry Ser  vice,   carry   travellers  on   the  70-mile return trip along Shus- ���.  wap Lake.  The nature of the trip each  day is determined by the nuTn  .. ber of people who want' to tra  vel and by the type of cargo to  be carried. The Stephanie can  carry 18 passengers, the Phoebe Ann 40. Either boat can  push the barge, which can carry all types of cargo, up to and  including trucks and trailers.  The cargo determines the  number of stops the boat  makes. Some days it may make  a dozen stops, some days only  one. Time for the trip varies  from 10 to 12 hours.  One stop that the boat almost  always maket. is at the Indian  pictographs near the north end  of Seymour Arm. Here, passengers can view from the  boat a panel of rock paintings  that stretches 20 feet long and  eight feet high; it contains  more than two dozen figures.  There    are    other    possible  stops along the route, at log-  - ging camps or lakeshore residences.  At the end of Seymour Arm  is Daniel Bay, the northernmost point on the ferry trip.  Here, visitors can lunch at a  historic hotel and bask in the  atmosphere of an area that was  once part of a shortlived gold  rush. ������'.-.  Then the boat turns for Sic-  amous and home, giving the  passengers a chance to relax in  deck chairs and enjoy this  "Lake of Shimmering Waters." .  The Stephanie or Phoebe Ann  runs daily during July and  August, three times a week in  spring and fall and twice a  week from November through  April. Cost of the trip is $8 On  the Phoebe Ann and $5 on the  Stephanie. The ferry service of-.  fice is located under the highway bridge in Sicamous.

One day he was very unhappy.  "Haw come," cried Frankie, "how come I don't get  more crayons to color with?"  "Everybody only gets six  crayons," explained Frank-  ie's teacher patiently, "the  people at the Department of  Education in Victoria have  told us we .must make good  use of our supplies because  it may be some time before  we can get any more."  "But we had six crayons  last year when we were in  grade one and because we're  in grade two this year we  should have at least 20 percent more crayons."  The teacher continued  calmly.  "You see," she explained,  "our country is experiencing inflation and when that  happens we all have to try  spending a little less money."  "What's iniflation?" asked  Frankie.  "Well that's when people  have more money than the  government can support according to the gross national  product. It's like us using too  many crayons when the  school is out of money and  can't afford to buy new ones."  "Or when my mother  spends too much on groceries and my dad gets mad be  cause he can't pay for them/"  "iSomething like that," said  the teacher.  "But I still need a purple  crayon," said Frankie. "Purple is my favorite color and  I need it."  "But you have six colors  and that's all you really  need," explained the teacher. "It's not always possible  for everyone to have what  he likes. As long as we have  what we need we should be  happy."  "But why does Peter have  12 crayons?" asked Frankie.  "Doesn't he have iniflation?"  "Yes," answered the teacher, "everyone has inflation.  But Peter's parents have lots  of money so they bought him  the extra crayons. You have  to accept the fast that in our  society some people are going to have more than others."  "That's not fair," said  Frankie. "If he has 12 crayons the rest of us should  have 12 crayons."  "You're right it isn't fair,"  said the teacher, "but Frankie it's not a good attitude to  want something just because  another person has it. ..'If we  always want what another  person wants then we will  never be happy. .We will always be asking for more and  more."  "But Peter can do a better  job on his coloring book and  it will be easier for him to  get into grade three."  "Don't worry, Frankie,"  said the teacher, "you won't  be graded on your coloring  alone. It's only a small part  of what you will be learning.  "You will learn, for instance  that once in a while we may  have to sacrifice some things  In order to make them better in the long run. You will  learn that some people are  not prepared to make these  sacrifices and will - take advantage of those people who  do. You will also learn,  Frankie, that sometimes you  will be walking in one direction while everybody is go-  ing in the other direction but  in" spirit you know you're  right and you keep going. If  you follow what you feel is  right you may find that other  people agree with you and  you'll become a leadjer rather  than a follower. Do you understand that Frankie?"  Frankie said he understood  and then the bell rang for recess and he forgot about his  coloring.  Isn't it nice to know that  your children are being exposed to the higher ideals of  life?

YOUR  FORESTS,  YOUR  FUTURE*  Highway 101 paving postponed  Paving on the upper portion  of Highway 101 in Gibsons will  not be done until spring now.  the Department of Highways  has informed council. Bad weather, bad materials and breakdowns have , forced the postponement of paving that was  originally held up so the long  aiwaited culverts could be placed along the highway ditclies.  Paving otf this area in front  of Sunnycrest Shopping Centre and Elphinstone will commence in March or April, council was informed.  Meanwhile village aldermen  have expressed fears over the  fact that no culverts were  placed along one section of the  highway directly in front of  the Standard, service sation.  At this point the water flows  west along the highway and  ultimately flows into Chaster  Creek. Apparently Department  of Highways engineers felt no  problems would exist because  gutters will be installed to handle the surface water.  Council has feors that during  heavy rains run-off from the  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  parking lot may cause flooding.  "I am personally disappointed with the Highways department and I feel the parking  lot will provide more than just  the run-off," Alderman Bill  . Laing said at Tuesday night's  council meeting.      ,  Council has fears that ,<$urinjg  the department of highways  expressing the sentiments.

Cmdre Ian Morrow, one of  the chief instigators in bringing' the organization to this  area, has conducted investigations to find out interest in  both the- Sea Cadet Corps  which is open to young men  and women aged 13 to 18 and,  the Navy League Cadets Which  includes ages 11 to 1��.  .Cmdre. Morrow said 'he visited schools in the area and  found that 270 students indicated an interest in joining  either one of the two groups.  He said about 100 parents have  also indicated they would be  willing to become members ot  the Navy League,Branch at a  cost of one dollar per year.  A meeting was called last  Sunday by Gibsons Legion president Dan Dawe to solicit support from local clubs and organizations. Those attending  that meeting voted unanimously to initiate the Navy Leaigue  Brar-ch. Application for charter  membership is now being made  and Cmdre. Morrow said he  has already received indications that the application will  be approved.  An interim executive was elected. Heading the branch as  president is Dan Dawe, vice-  president is Captain Art Mac-  Phee, a former director of cadets at National Defence headquarters. Verna Rivard is secretary   and   Wayne   Robinson  will act as treasurer. Sea Cadet committee chairman is  Jack MicCaan and membership  and publicity chairman is Sally Dawe.  Initial  members of  a  planning committee were also chosen. They are Cmdre. Ian Morrow, Charles Mandelkau, Carol Finch and Ross Orris.  The executive will begin a  general membership drive in  a few weeks. After that, says  Cmdre. Morrow, recruiting will  be in full swing and cadet  groups will be organized before  January 1 of next year.  Seven or eight instructors  will also be needed. Each instructor will be paid a half day  for every evening of instruction and occupy a naval reserve  rank.  Once the groups have been  organized the next aim will be  to form a marching contingent  for Sechelt's Timber Days arid  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade. Cadets  will become eligible to attend  sumimer camps and take part  in training sessions on ships.  There will also be opportunities to become involved in  gliding, rifle shooting, swimming, and leadership training  programs.  The Sea Cadet organization  is heavily supported by the Department of National Defence  and Navy League Cadets are  the responsibility/of the Navy  League.  The Department of National  Defence does not use the cadet  organizations as a recruiting  source.  #x*'Y  l^uryshag  %      ?���    *-A  $���?'*���%<�����     *  **.*.  ���y -.  ���%<,.������"> ���'���*���  1��'1S  s��^J*<.  r*  ���*&  >    Ai Jit..      x <* ���  mm  KEN DeVRIES  &S0N  1659 Sunshine Coast Hwy)  Gibsons 886-7112  Charles English Ltd.

The   stage   of   the   Roberts  Creek  Community  Hall, with  gold ��� curtained background,  was a picture in fall colored  leaves, flowers, fruits and vegetables for last week's St. Aidan's ACW bazaar.  Miss Ena Harrold, President  of St. Aidan's ACW, welcomed  the wonderful crowd of people,  and introduced Mrs. H. E. Nes-  bett, Regional Deanery Chairman, who spoke on the Pakistan embroidery work she had  brought with her.  Mrs. E. J. Shaw was presented with a corsage. Mrs. Shaw  said it was nice to see so many  happy familiar faces. She also  commented on the various  stalls, stocked with items for  sale, and hoped those present  would find many things to purchase. She then wished the  ACW every success in their efforts, and officially declared  the bazaar open.  Business was brisk at all  stalls, during the first half  hour, after which the tea-  tables with the delicious sandwiches and dainty cakes were  the centre of attraction, and  folks sat down to enjoy a nice  cup of tea, and a chat with  old friends.  The door prize was won by  Mrs. H. Oswald of Gower Point  Heavy rains  October rainfall amounted to  a near record with a total of  307.0 mm. Rainfall for the same  month last year was only 48.2  mm.

Letters to Editor  West supporter  Editor: Will you permit me,  through the medium of your  newspaper, to state very briefly why I am voting for Mr.  Frank West as representative  for Area E at the coming election on Nov.  IS?  There is no necessity for me  to elaborate on his qualifications for the position, he has  already proved himself time  and again by his unselfish and  devoted attention to the needs  of the people, not only in Area  E but as chairman of the Regional District and the Sunshine Coast as a whole.  After the fiasco of "The Battle of Gospel Rock" as a sewer  outlet I made a mental vow-  not to participate in any more  local political affairs but I feel  that the time has come for we  in the outlying areas to unite  in presenting an opposition to  the ambitious tycoons at the  top of the hill (Yes, I mean in  and around the Sunnycrest Plaza) who seem to control the  puppets at the foot simply by  pulling on the right strings.  I am certain that by marking an "X" for West on the  assigned ballot we will at least  have a bulwark against the  schemes of these ruthless, money hungry characters who  would for the dollars involved,  cajve up and desecrate our  beautiful corner of the world.  ���D. CRUICKSHANK,  R.R. II, Gibsons;   '  Gun bylaw  introduced  The Sunshine Coast Regional  Board has given first reading  to a new gun bylaw that will  prohibit the use of firearms,  except in special cases, within  a certain area.  The boundary of the area  concerned runs roughly along  the B.C. Hydro power line from  Port Mellon to the Earls Cove  area.  Peter Hoemberg, regional  board director who, along with  environment and police officials formulated the bylaw,  told the retgiohal board last  Thursday that the purpose of  the bylaw was to eliminate the  irresponsible use of firearms  specifically in populated areas.  Hoemberg said the only area  still in question as far as boundaries were concerned was between Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour.  The bylaw states that no fire  arm shall be discharged in the  designated area except for the  following: farmers protecting  their crops and livestock from  birds or animals; persons engaged in the humane destruction or slaughter of domestic  livestock; persons engaged in a  slaughter-house operation; persons discharging a firearm on  ,. a trap shooting range by authorized permit; and persons dis- '  charging an airgun, air pistol,  air rifle or spring gun on property owned or leased by him  or his parents or guardians.  Under the bylaw it will become illegal to discharge any  firearm on or across any highway or within 150 yards of  any building such as schools,  houses, businesses, or any other  place where people may assemble such as parks and play-  Violation of the bylaw will  grounds,  carry a maximum $500 fine.

By JOHN HIND SMITH  Rainy iRiver, near Port Mellon, has some very spectacular country which is relatively  easy off access via Enemark's  logging road which is still used  by shake cutteip but one is unlikely to aneet any logging  trucks at the present time.  There are a couple of peaks  over 5500 feet, Panther Peak  and Tetrahedlron, both of which  need no special skills or equipment to climb and only a little  perseverance.  Drive past the pulpjmill at  Port Melon, cross the bridge  over the Rainy River and take  the first road to the left after  passing some trailers on the  right. After about four miles  the first bridge is'reached. Unless one has a fourwheel drive  or maybe a Volkswagen, one  is well advised to park here  as the fOllowii-g half mile is  very rough. There is a good  parking spot on this side of  the river.  About Vz to % mile up the  road a second bridge is crossed  and immediately afterwards an  old shakecutter's road goes off  to the left. _Df you intend overnight camping there is a good  spot here about % mile from  the bridge on the left hand  side. It is a good idea to camp  here and1 get away to an early  start in the morning. There is  lots of wood and water available.

The.  route involves some bush  whacking until one gets into  the cleft 'For a considerable  part of. the year the gully is  filled with snow which makes  the going fairly easy, although  steep. At the top the valley  opens up and' the real hand  part of the climb is over. Follow the creek until one sees  the escarpment on the leift getting less precipitous and start  traversing up until the ridge is  reached. Follow the ridge  which comes back towards the  Rainy River, the trees thin out  and gradually disappear, and  from here on in the wayyis obvious, presenting some classic  and really spectacular views  and a beautiful and very rewarding hike to the top.  An estimated time of about  eight to TO hours should be allowed. There are no major  problems but obviously this is  not a hike to be undertaken  by the inexperienced hiker. K  it is attempted in- the late  spring, wihich is a good time to,  go, a pair of crampons and a  rope would be a great asset.  SHOCKED?  At fhe high price of electrical work  in the area?

Aelbers, 38, has been a resident of Gibsons? since 1967. He  presently works, as an appraiser for a Vancouver firm.  "I have entered into the Gibsons municipal election because  I do not believe in appointments by acclamation. I -wish  to force a contest so that the  voters of this district can become aware of issues and use  their right to vote intelligently," Aelbers said.    k  "I have witnessed tremendous growth on the southern  part of the Peninsula since  1967. I. maintain that this  growth' is inevitable and wall  not be, stopped by disallowing  . development, but that an overall plan for organized growth  should be developed and adhered to. Much of the land in  the Regional District is intimately related to tlie village,  since the village boundaries  are not natural boundaries. I  believe it is essential that the  village and; Regional District  have a joint cooperative plan,  rather than the present tendency towards rivalry and animosity that exists between the  two authorities."  *  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES -March 21 to April 20  GOOD horoscope this w^eek. vIf  ypu are the age of retirement  you are indeed lucky, or if ypu,  are a younger person you have  much to look forward td also;  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  Ypur health needs attention  now, A wise move is to have a  medical check up, and get plenty of rest.

Teachers In the Sechelt School District  THE EMPTY cage you see in  the background was built on  Gibsons government wharf a  few months ago to house the  compressed gas tanks you see  in the foreground. Now Who  was it that said something  about   never   the   twain   shall  Village 'dragged into gutter'  Gibsons council will be considering recommendations made  by one village resident who  recently warned council in a  letter: "For God sake wake  i_p before the whole village of  Gibsons is dragged into the  gutter."  Commenting on the implementation of some new bylaws  as suggested by Mrs. G. Mclnnes of Seaview Road, acting  sfnayor Kurt Hoehne said at  a recent council meeting that  it was easy to pass a law "but  enforcing it is the problem."  Hoehne said the RCMP would  not enforce certain bylaws in  some tolwns because they are  not on the city payroll. .  Specific bylaws that Mrs. Mclnnes feels should be initiated  deal with keeping the village  tidy, keeping down the noise,  and controlling pets.  "All owners of pets who turn  them loose and do not care  for them should be fined heavily;" Mrs. Mdmnes writes. She  suggests if T the owner is a  "deadbeat" and cannot pay the  (fine the owner should be put  to work cleaning up the village. She also suggests the vil  lage apply for a LIP grant to  operate an animal spaying clinic.  Mrs. Mclnnes further complained of the litter in Pioneer  Park and the "rundown, neglected" area around Seaview  Road and Highway 101.  In reaction to the letter from  Mrs. Mclnnes, Aid. Jim Metzler suggested that considera-  ion be given to putting some  senior citizens on the village  payroll next year in order to  get some of the streets cleaned.  He suggested the finance committee consider it for next  year's budget saying the cost  would not be too great.  Also coriimenting on Mrs.  Mclnnes letter, Aid. Stuiaxit  Metcalfe said some of the  points were "very well justified."  The formation of groups  such as the Sea. Cadets should  be encouraged so the youth of  this village are occupied in a  healthy constructive manner,  Metcalfe said. Mrs. Mclnnes  had also cotmplained of noisy  youngsters in the Seaviefw  Road area. ,       v  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8 - 8 p.m.  FIREMEN'S BINGO  20 Games ��� $1,000 Jackpot  ROBERTS CREEK COMMUNITY HALL  Elplhinstone Recreation Committee, sponsors  DOOR PRIZE 3 cards - $5.00  meet?

Lorimer, Minister of Municipal  Affairs and Don Lockstead;  MLA for Mackenzie, last week  announced the release of a  housing starts cheque to the  municipality of Gibsons. The  cheque was issued under provisions of the Natural Gas Revenue Shraing Act passed at  the Spring Session of the Legislature. The act authorized a  ���grant of $100 per net housing  start  Each municipality in British  Columbia was entitled to claim  for single family dwellings, duplex units, apartments, condominium units, co-op units and  mobile home pads. Provision  was made to deduct demolitions in order to arrive at an  accurate net figure.  For the province as a whole,  cheques were distributed to 133  municipalities. The total disbursement exceeded $2.8 million.  In a letter accompanying the  cheque Mr. Lockstead pointed  out that the housing starts  grant represented a provincial  government effort to help municipalities to "bear the cost  burden associated with population and housing growth. It  is a direct contribution geared  to community improvement. In  describing the Natural Gas Revenue Sharing Act as a- "commitment by the province to  share resource revenues with  British Columbia's municipalities" he emphasized that "the  entire revenue sfiaaring program was developed in consultation with the Union of British Columbia Municipalities."  The total amount received by  Gibsons for the year 1975 is  $3,000.  TREE TOPPING  TREE TOPPING  VIEW DEVELOPMENTS LTD  Marv   Volen,   Phone   886-9597  Clean up your wooded areas.

Ahortiher incumbent, Jack  MacLeod, also in' area B, said  schools today are doing a good  job and. that today's students  are much better informed than  students were in the past. He  said it was important not to  lose the character and originality of young people and that  efforts should be made to give  all young people a chance in  education including those with  learning disabilities.  MacLeod said he gets annoyed when people say that students are not/being taught the  basic skills because a look at  present programs indicates that  teachers are emphasizing those  skills. He said there was also  a great need to develop new  programs in the schools that  were relative to today's young  people.  Don Douglas, running for  one of the three area B seats  said his main objective if elected to the board will be to  ensure that students have the  best learning conditions. He  said many parents are not satisfied with present learning  conditions and he would work  towards a policy to improve  education. He also felt beginning teachers need more guidance and encouragement and  said the upgrading of all teachers should be an on-going process.  Steve Esslemont said he had  no particular platform but  would tackle the issues as they  Log or styro floats  tol  order,   gangplanks  wharves, anchors - Call  us for your requirements}  Call BERT CARSON  886-2861  came up before the board.

He felt  the board should be able to  grow and change according to  the needs and that presently  there was a lack of community orientation on the part of  the school. 3Sf elected, he said  would   keep    down   frivolous  spending and attempt to achieve a better relationship between teachers and the board.  Bowen Islander Claus Spiekermann told the group that in  order for education to be relevant it must serve its constituents. He said more and more  Canadians are seeking education and that access must be  provided for everyone. Sipieker-  mann said his hope, if elected  is   to provide   democratic   accountability and responsiveness  to the public and he added he  would do his utmost to ensure  that local school control is established ��� control by local  school parents over the decisions   made   by   professionals  for their children. He said trustees must take a hard look at .  what they are doing.  Running for the Gibsons  school board seat are JoAnn  Rottluff and Anne Ibbitson.

She  would also like to incorporate  a program for family living  into the school curriculum.  Ann Ibbitson said she does  not plan to make promises but  that she has a profound interest in youth.  "I am wondering if enough  is being done for our children?" rfhe asked. Ibbitson, a  newcomer to Gibsons, said she.  has no biases and would |ake  a fresh approach and have a  strong voice, if elected.
