Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  tinted. and Publish ed at Gibsons. B.C;  10c per.copy  Volume 28. Number 43, November 19, 1975.  ���T-v,  VOLUNTEER FIREMAN  Ron     that will save' t^cious niinUtes  Leachman   and. pocket   pager     in fire calls.  New paging system saves  precious time for firemen  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  department   hasv one   major  aiin: to put out fires. And as  a consequence of that aim it  is hoped that both lives and  property can be saved from  destruction.  To carry out the aim. members of the fire department  have to constantly face their  greatest enemy ��� time.  Response time, explains  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger. is  one oif the most important  factors in any fire. A minute can mean the difference  between life and death.  And because response time  is so important the fire department is presently revolutionizing its call system so  volunteer firemen can save  precious time in getting to a  fire.  The new call system involves pagers that will eventually be carried by all  (firemen. The tiny pocket size  receivers will tell the fireman where the fire is, how  bad it is. and how much  equipment and manpower are  required.  As Fire Chief Ranniger  explains it. a central 24-hour  dispatch system will eventually come into operation for  both ambulance and fire  calls. What happens is that  the fire call will be placed  to the central dispatch and; a  "transmitter there will send  the verbal message over the  pagers informing firemen on  the location and type of fire.  That will allow each fireman  to attend to the fire directly  whether from his home or  place of work.  Under the present system,  two fire sirens, one in the  lower village and one in the  upper area, are sounded and  firemen within range will  respond by attending to the  firehall.  Firemen- who are out of  range of the siren are called  by a telephone calling system  which is initiated from one of  the eight homes that carry  the fire phones..When a caller presently phones the fire  number the eight phones ring  and each person answering  the call will then phone four  firemen.  The major flaw in this system is that precious time is  lost. By the time a fire operator has contacted the last  person on the list, several  minutes have already gone  toy. This problem is compounded at night when firemen are asleep because it  takes that much longer for  them to answer the phone.  The paging system is already being used by several  other volunteer fire departments in the lower mainland  area. It's proven very efficient, says the fire chief.  So far. Gibsons Fire Department is operating with  five pagers. It is hoped that  23 more can be purchased in  the near future to give all 28  firemen a pager that will be  carried for 24 hours a day.  At $_50 a shot the battery  operated receivers are not  cheap. That means the fire  department is looking at a  total of $8,700 and needless  to say that's presently the  number one priority on the  budget.  Fire Chief Ranniger admits  "that's a hell of a lot of  money." But he adds: "You  are looking at life and if you  can get a guy put of a burning house a minute sooner  you may save his life."  S,CR.D* Chairman West loses seat  Several major upsets were  recorded on the Sunshine Coast  in last week's municipal and  school board elections.  Perhaps the greatest upset  occurred in Regional District  area E where incumbent and  Chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, Frank  West was defeated by newcomer Edward Johnson, a resident  of Hopkins Landing.  Johnson ; polled 234 votes  against West's i80 votes.

In an announcement at a re  cent council meeting Metcalfe  said the subcommittee working  on the suggested boundary expansion consists of reputable  citizens all residing within the  boundary limits of the propos  ed extension and these citizens  are doing nothing more than  assembling facts relating to  the extension.  "The proposed boundaries  were established by this sub  committee and were not influenced nor dictated by the  elected members of the village  of Gibsons," Metcalfe said.  He said council member?  and staff are assisting the subcommittee by providing research information "but they  do not influence this subcommittee in their research." He  added that the subcommittee  was formed in accordance with  the proposal of Chris Woodward of the provincial Department of Municipal Affairs.  Council indicated it was necessary to clarify its position  because of recent criticisms  and objections concerning the  suggested boundary extensions.  council. Watson with 69, votes  was topped by incumbent Ernie Booth with 98 votes and  businessman Morgan Thomp  son who polled 93 votes. Voter  turnout in Sechelt was high  with 258 of the 403 eligible voters casting ballots.  Watson remains the Regional  District representative for Sechelt. That seat is up for election next year.  In Gibsons village, council  remains the same as it was  prior to the November' 15 election . Incumbents Stuart Metcalfe and James Metzler polled  the most votes with 273 and  254 votes respectively. Newcomer Pieter Aelbers was de  feated with 80 votes. Metzler  also captured the Regional pis  trict seat representing/the village with 277 votes against  Aelbers' 75 votes.  Voter turnout in the village  was 30 percent with 355 out of  1185 eligible voters casting ballots.  In School Board elections,  the seat left vacant by Trustee  Agnes Labonte representing  the village of Gibsons was captured by JoAnn Rottluff. Rottluff received 288 votes compared to opponent Anne Ibbitson's 66 votes. ,  In rural area B, three school  board seats were contested by  six candidates. Elected were  Ce_,a Fisher, Don Douglas and  Claus Spiekermann with 847,  656 and 629 votes respectively.  Defecated were Steve Esslemont  with 247 votes, and incumbents  Joe Horvath with 426 votes and  Jack MacLeod with 502 votes.  In rural area B^ 1373 out of  3622 eligible voters cast ballots  giving an approximate 37.9 per  cent turnout.  Voters will next be going to  the polls December l'l for the  provincial elections.  Board wants land taken out  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has passed fa motion  urging the Provincial Land  Comimisison to take out of the  land freeze all lands on the  Sunshine Cofast that are, not  suitable for agriculture. .The  board did not spec5% Twjhlp  would judge whether, a given  piece of land is suitable for  agriculture or not.  The motion resulted from a  -public policy meeting at Roberts. Creek last Thursday. A  representative from the lands  commission was present at that  meeting.  The major public complaint  voiced at Thursday's meeting  was that some land presently  included in the land freeze  was not suitable for agriculture. One member of the pub  lie, Hrnery Scott of Roberts  Creek, said he has spent seven  years trying to upgrade his  garden and "unless you grow  marijuana there's no land here  you can make a profit on."  "I'm at my wit's end trying  to convince you guys that my  land is not suitable for agriculture," Scott said. He said  he had been negotiating with  both the regional district and  the lands commission for some  time and added, "I'm going to  have to die in the poorhouse  because you call that rock ot  mine  agricultural land."  The land commission was established in April 1974 with the  aim of keeping development  off land that could be used for  food growing purposes. There  are presently over 15,000 acres  of land in the freeze on the  Sunshine Coast. This acreage  comprises about 2 percent ot  all land in the regional district.  The land official told the  meeting   last   week  that  land  was initially placed in the  freeze through regional district pc^cipaition, and with the  assistance of information from  the Canada and B.C. Land Inventory,, aerial photbgi_phs,  and maps.  HeT; said the major criteria  used to determine the agricultural capability of land was  soil and climate. He explained  that agricultural lands were  classed by the commission on  a scale of one to ten. number  one .being -inime-Ifbdd growing  land, and number' ten being  land with rocks outcrops and  generally considered unsuitable for agriculture. He said  land on the Sunshine Coast  was classed between four and  favex because it was characterized by gravel and sand and  lacked moisture in the summer. He added that the land  commission was not only think  ing of the present agricultural  capabilities but also the long  term potential. With irrigation,  he believed the land in this  area could be classed between  three and four.  The official admitted that in  some cases land was included  in the freeze that shouldn't  have been included. He said  for that reason the appeal process "was set up.  The appeal process was an  other matter of contention for  some members of the public.  This process is done through  the regional district and before  an appeal application is for- ���  warded to the lands commission, the regional planner or  the board may add comments  indicating whether or not they  agree with the appeal.  Regional    District    Director  Peter Hoemberg clarified the  board's position by saying that  (Continued on Page 7)  School budget nears $4m.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  Let's wait for results  There still seems to be a general skepticism concerning the most recent Gibsons expansion plans that involve  the annexation of Regional District Areas E and F to  the village. Council has come under fire for allegedly  assuming ambitious ideas of grandeur and bigness and  furthermore attempting to pursue those ideas below  board, so to speak.  It should be clarified ��� as Aid. Stu Metcalfe has attempted to do at a recent committee on government  meeting and a more recent council meeting ��� that these  latest expansion plains are not the work of Gibsons aldermen or the Gibsons clerk but rather of a committee  made up of citizens of the various areas involved.  When Gibsons initiated the original expansion plans  one year ago it also initiated investigations by the provincial Department of Municipal Affairs to consider  alternative methods of government not only for the Gibsons area but for the entire Sunshine Coast. As Aid. Metcalfe has pointed out, the sub-committee studying alternate methods of government for the Gibsons area was  formed in accordance with a proposal of the Department  of Municipal Affairs.  The latest expansion plans, then, did not come directly from Gibsons council but rather from the citizens  committee presently studying the feasibility of that expansion. The results of the study are to be released sometime before the new year and until that time residents of  the areas involved need not be alarmed with the fears  that they are surreptitiously being annexed to the village.  The results of the study being conducted by the subcommittee may indicate that it is feasible to include  areas E and F within the village boundaries or they may  indicate it is not feasible. If and when the Gibsons expansion ever becomes a reality, the final decision will  still be up. to .the residents themselves. Until that time  lets wait for the results of the study that takes in all  points of view before publicly passing judgment based on  our own sentiments.  A weak motion  The Regional Board's public meeting in Roberts  Creek last week brought out some blatant injustices in  the provincial government's land freeze.  The fact remains: that land freeze is basically a good  ���and necessary thing because it serves to halt indiscriminate development on prime agricultural land. But as  was admitted by the land commission official present at  Thursday's meeting, some land on the Sunshine Coast  now designated in the land reserve does not belong there.  This "frozen" land not suitable for agriculture is  causing undue hardships on some individuals who have  invested their life savings in a piece of property, it helps  to push up the already inflationary price of land in this  area, and it also helps to curb much needed housing.  The regional board came out in favor of lifting the  non-agricultural land out of the reserve, but a motion to  this effect carries little or no weight. The motion, in effect, is an appeal to the land commission to take all land  not suitable for agriculture out of the land freeze. That  sounds fine except that all land now included in the  freeze is obviously considered by the land commission  to be suitable or potentially suitable for agricultural  purposes. Thus we are right back at the beginning.  What the board should be pressing for is a lands commission soils expert who could personally investigate  every appeal to determine whether in fact the land has  any potential for agriculture or not. If the appeal is  ruled in favor of the land-owner and the land is taken  out of the reserve then the regional district thereafter  has the option of approving or rejecting any subsequent  'application for development according to the district  (bylaws.  Asking the land commission to take lands not suitable for agriculture out of the freeze will bring the quick  response: all lands not suitable for agriculture were not  included in the freeze in the first place.  OF SHOES AMD SHIPS AND SEALING WAX ��� ��� ���  A little clarification on the airport issue  All is fair in love and war  And politics.  Seems Gibsons aldermen  feel a bit slighted because  their Sechelt counterparts  have put thin in public disparagement.  If you remember the story  in the press last week concerning the airport, you will  remember that Gibsons was;  blamed for holding up the  payment that was supposed  to go from the Department  of Transport to the airport;  contractor, Coast Paving.  Gibsons council wrote a  letter to the Department of  Transport asking that a certain dissolution clause be  placed in the joint municipal  airport contract. The dissolution clause would give ownership of the airport to one village should for any reason  the other village cease to exist.  Sechelt Alderman Norm  Watson said the dissolution "  clause request was in bad  taste and he also blalmed it  for holding up the airport  payment to  Coast Paving.  Gibsons council came out  as the culprits of the situation and Clandestine conversa  tions in back alleys further  dealt with "delusions of  grandeur" and "if they can't  take area E at least they're  going to try for the airport."  In the meantime Sechelt  council was pro motherhood  and all that.  But some further investigations into the story revealed it wasn't so at all.  The letter from Gibsons  was supposedly based on rumors. But the rumors originated one fine evening at a  Committee on Government  meeting when Norm Watson  said something or other about  Sechelt throwing in its hat  with the regional district.  That alarmed Gibsons reps  because it meant the regional  district would automatically  inherit one half of an airport  for nothing. Now that's not  so bad except for the fact  that the regional district was  offered the airport several,  years ago when it was still  a liability and not an asset.  Why should the taxpayers of  Gibsons and Sechelt pay for  the airport and when it's  finally in a position to pay  for itself it falls in the hands  of the regional board? asked  Gibsons council. Thus the  dissolution clause.  Both the Gibsons and Sechelt representatives on the  airport committee, Bill.Laing  and Frank Leitner had discussed this situation even before the - actual letter was  written. The subject was supposed to-be officially discussed in Sechelt council so Sechelt could either agree or  disagree and the airport contract could be signed thus allowing Coast Paving to receive their money.  But Gibsons' letter was not  discussed -��� not until after  Norm Watson had taken it  and showed it surreptitiously to the press and the boys  at the coffee club.  Prior to this Gibsons and  Sechelt council held a joint  meeting at which the dissolution clause was supposed  to have been brought up. But  it wasn't   discussed  because  the press boys were hanging  around for crumbs and it was-  felt the matter should have  been hashed out in committee before   anything  official  was   released.   Why   an   in  camera session wasn't called,  who   knows,   but   the   only  things    exchanged    at   that  meeting were coffee cups arid/  platitudes.  So as it turned out the by  now  famous   Gibsons  letter  was not brought up at Sechelt council chambers until  two  weeks after  this  joint  SecheltGifosons meeting. And  so   the  master contract  remained    unsigned    and    so  Coast Paving was not getting  paid.' -   Y  All the news stories cbn-  to indicate Gibsons was in  cerning this matter seemed  the process of weaving some  diabolical subversive plot to  get the airport into their own  greedy hands.  Don't   believe   everything  you read.  5 to 25 years ago  FIVE YEARS  AGO  With neither Gibsons or Sechelt mayors having to seek  re-election this year the municipal election will be a quiet  one.

A recommendation from a  detailed planning committee  suggested the procedures committee .of the board consider  the additional staff because a  large volume of land use applications is placing a considerable strain on staff time.  The comtaaittee suggested the  procedures committee look into  the possibility of commissioning the planning staff on a consulting basis to handle the bulk  of land-use contract work.  It was noted that the fees  from the contracts would pay  for such staff time.  "The art of reasoning consists of getting hold of the  subject at the right end, of seizing on the few general  ideas which illuminate the whole, and of marshalling  all subsidiary facts around them."      ���A. N. Whitehead  A high crop yield  An official representing the provincial lands  department told the Regional Board last week  that the quality of agricultural land on the Sunshine Coast is classed between four and five on a  scale of one to ten. Class one is considered prime  agricultural land and class ten is land with rocky  outcrops generally considered not suitable for  agriculture.  Land on the Sunshine Coast, the official said,  is characterized by gravel and sand, and a lack of  moisture in the summer.  A soil condition study was undertaken in  fchis area in the 1960s. The results of this study,  known as the Pemberton report, indicated that  conditions here were very favorable for the commercial growing of nuts, berries, twigs and marijuana.  If land presently in the agricultural land reserve is not suitable for turnips and beets, could  it be that the provincial government has its eyes  on the future, designating this area as- the primary  grounds of production for yet another tax supplying commodity that: preys on the weakness of  human indulgence?

SOCCER  RUGBY  Third spot for Wanderers  Strong offense takes game  Elphinstone Wanderers travelled to Central Park, Burnaby last Saturday to engage the  Burnaby Firemen in a battle  for third place. The local team  captured the spot with a 2-fl  win. _ ��� ���:'  From the opening kickoff  Gibsons played a well co-ordinated game and had Burnaby  with their backs to the wall.  At approximately the 15 min.  mark Ken Bland took a free  'kick from the Gibsons side of  center and scored when a Burnaby defender deflected the  shot into his own net. Gibsons  continued to apply the pressure, and was awarded ah indirect sfree kick, five minutes  later. On vthe ensuing play  Frank Hoehne drove the ball  over the goal. *nie Firemen  ���were totally disoriented, and  Gibsons pin point passing resulted in a penalty kick. Frank  Hoehne's placed shot was de-  -lected on a spectacular save  by the Firemen's goalie. The  first half ended Gibsons leading 1-0.  In the second half the Fire^  men started to control midfield  and as a result hit the goalpost  on. a tremendous drive from 20  yards. Five minutes later the  Firemen scored a questionable  goal on a poor call by the ref-  MADE IN CANADA  ��now houses seem purely a  Canadian invention as they are  absent from the Alaskan variants of Eskimo nd Thule culture.  PRINTED PATTERN  /:  eree. Gibsons started to come  on after that score and the continued pressure resulted in a  picture goal headed in by Dan  MacKajy. Gilbsons played a  steady defensive game thereafter and the game ended Gibsons 2, Firemen 1.  Outstanding efforts were  turned in by Ken Bland with  one goal and one assist, Dan  Weinhandl, Dan MacKay,  Frank Hoehne, Mike Musgrov��  and in his final game before  leaving for Toronto. Ron Walker. The entire team is to be  congratulated on a well coordinated effort.  The first half of the season  comes to a close on November  23 when Gibsons meets Four  Seasons at Jonathon Rogers  Park in Vancouver at noon.  A strong display of disciplined offensive rugby in the  second half enabled Gibsons to  outscore the Red lions 22 to S  in rugby action last weekend  at Langdale field.  In the first half Gibsons seemed to control the play but  couldn't score except for a penalty kick by Bob Reed. Gb-  sons constantly found themselves in trouble, taking poor  penalties in their. defensive  zone. Fortunately for them.  Red Lions only converted one  kick and the score at the half  was 3 to 3.  ��� From the second half kick-"  off Gibsons went straight to  the offensive and moved the  ball into the Lions' zone. The  strum executed every facet of  their game beautifully which  allowed the backs to run free.  Early in the half Gibsons won  the ball with a quick hook and  it was passed out to the three-  line and then to fullback Bob  Crosby who took the pass and  ran in for the score.  Shortly after that Bob Johnson broke through the line and  went fifty yards with some fine  open field running before passing to Ken Johnson who ran  the last ten yards to score.  John Crosby added the convert.  Gibsons continued to press  and forced the opposition offside. John Crosby was successful with his penalty kick making the score 16 to 3 in Gibsons  favor.

FOODS FEATURE  Board tells principal to stay in Canada  A dish suitable for company  Chicken is a universal favorite! Because of its delicate  flavor it lends itself to combination with many other foods  such as fruits and vegetables.  It is also a great favorite for  casseroles.   -  Chicken compares favorably  with other meats as a source of  high quality protein, niacin and  iron. It has the advantage of  containing less fat than most  meats, especially when the skin  and outer fat are removed.  Ready to cook chicken may  be purchased whole or cut up.  When you buy, compare the  price of whole chicken to that  of chicken parts. If whole  chickens are lower in price per  pound, buy these and cut them  yourself. All you need is a  sharp knife.  1. To remove wing: Pull the  wing out from the body and  slash the skin between them.  Cut around the shoulder joint  to separate the wing from the  breast, leaving as much white  meat on the breast as possible.  If desired, cut off the wing  tips.  2. To remove leg (drumstick  and thigh): Slash the skin between the body and the thigh;  ttien press down and out on the  ^leg until the hip joint pushes  out of its socket. Cut through  the hip joint, separating the  thigh' from the body of the  bird. If desired, cut the drum- ,  stick   away   from   the   thigh  through the knee joint.  3. To remove the neck and  backbone: Starting at the tail,  cut through the ribs slightly  to the right of the backbone  all the way to the neck. Repeat  on the left side of the backbone. Remove the backbone  and neck in one piece by cutting the slrin around the neck.  4. To separate breast from  back: Insert the knife in wing  socket and cut through the rib  joints to the back of the bird.  This separates the back from  the breast, leaving part of the  ribs on each.  5. To divide breast: Spread the  bird open and cut the pearl-like  cartilage on either side of tfie  keel bone in the neck region.  Hold the bird firmly and press  from underneath, forcing the  keel bone to spring up so that  it can be easily removed. Cut  the breast in half lengthwisa  Chicken parts can be used  in many ways, the favorite being in casseroles. For special  fall eating, pair them with  peaches, pears and plums. 'Curried Fruit Chicken' is a dish  suitable for company. Serve it  with r*ce ana" condiments for  an Indian-style dinner.  CURRIED FRUIT CHICKEN  1  cut up  chicken broiler  (about 4 pounds)  % cup fat  % cup brown sugar  1 tablespoon curry powder  1 tablespoon flour  Portable classrooms for Elphie  In an effort to overcome  crowding in Elphinstone Secondary, school principal D. L.  Montgomery has requested an  additional  portable classroom.  In a letter to the school board  Montgomery said, "We are vising the lunchroom as a regular  classroom thus making it difficult to use the area as it was  initially designed."  Montgomery, said he would  like to free the cafeteria area  so it can be used as a lunchroom, a waiting area, and a  games room for the students  in the morning, at noon and af  ter school.  The board decided that one  portable   would   be   provided  immediately and another in the  future to further help allevi  ate overcrowding.  In another letter to the board  the Elphinstone principal sug  gested the janitorial staff vat  Elphinstone  be  increased  be-,  cause janitors are presently  having a difficult time keeping  the school clean.  He also suggested a proper  key system be put into effect  to avoid thefts and that a commissioner be hired to supervise  the school after regular school  hours.

Mexico No. That  was the decision of the school  board last Thursday night after discussing Dave Rempel's  request to take the grade seven  from Gibsons Elementary on a  trip to Mexico.  Rempel, principal o�� Gibsons  Elementary, took a grade seven  class on a study trip to Northern Mexico and the Western  United States last year. Thirty-  eight students took part in that  trip. It was financed by parents and by fund raising, projects undertaken by the students themselves.  Rempel said in a letter to  the board that the decision to  go to Mexico was made aifter  a number of meetings with parents and grade seven students.  He said a destination in Canada had also been discussed  but both parents arid students  indicated they were in favor  of the Mexico trip.  Rempel said the trip would  cost between $9,000 and $10,000  and that no student would miss  the experience because of lack  of funds.  School trustees generally felt  the trip should be to a destination in British Columbia or  Canada.  *T:am hot one 6f the trustees  in favor, of such a long trip,"  Maureen Clayton said. Sjbe'felt  that stuident energies should be  channelled into community oriented activities.  Ottaiwa was one suggested  destination   but  Remipel   said  the cost would be higher to go  to that city and that the.trip  would have to be undertaken  in May. The proposed Mexiico  trip would have been from  March 27 to April 11:  The board said it would be  in favor of a trip to Eastern  Canada.  NORTHERN   TRACKS .

Because  the elders of the tribe did hot  stop them from misusing the  sacred oolachan in this way, a  great fire came out of the  mountains and drove the people from their houses, leaving  behind a moon-like landscape  littered with lava.

JMMf  Bank of ft/loritreaf   :  GIBSONS  886-2216  SECHELT  885-2221  MADEIRA PARK  883-2718  natives finally returned to their  abandoned villages to find  their homes buried under  miles of molten rock.  Less picturesquely explained,  the Nass Lava Beds, reachable  from Terrace or Hazelton by  the West Kalum logging road  of the Twin-River Timber Limited, are the result of an outpouring of lava from a small  cone near the head of Tseax  Creek 300 years ago. The lava  flowed westward to block the  valley and form Lava Lake,  then' flowed north into the  Nass Valley to form a lava  plain eight miles long and two  miles wide. In the past 25  years the starkness of the unearthly mounds of rubble has  been softened by delicately  structured yellow-green lichens, mosses and ferns.  The lava flow that forms the  roadbed of the logging road  ends abruptly at the Nass River. Over the swirling brown  water is shale rock and the  present Indian village of Canyon City. Git-Qwouth-Zhkit or  "Long Nose of Fire that" Came  out of the Mountains" is the  name of the picturesque swaying suspension footbridge of  (wooden planks with rope netted safety sides that now allows natives of Canyon City  access to the outside world.  It is only since 1958 when Co  Lumbia Cellulose Company  built a road from Terrace that  the traveller has been able to  reach this remote, rugged and  unique part of the province.  Before that, access to the Nish-  ga Indian villages of Greenville, Aiyansh and Canyon City  was by canoe or motor boat  from the mouth of the Nass on  Portland Inlet.  As you stand now on the  frail looking bridge and look  down at logs speeding ddwn-  stream to the pulp mills of  Prince Rupert, you wonder  how the peoples of the Nass  managed to dock their boats in  the fast current before the  bridge was built.  Choose evenings or weekends  to drive to these distinctive  villages and lava beds, as use  of the logging roads is restricted. For the first 30 miles, you  drive a flat bench aibove the  Kitsamkalum River between  stands of second growth timber. Then you descend to nudge  pretty lakes and cross fast-  flowing streams by shapely  log bridges. Lush yellow water-  lilies contrast sharply with the  gaunt 'black stumps and charred spikes of the logging burns  behind. Likely companions  along the road are wolverines  or black bear.  At Mile 42, you come to Lava  Lake, and look down upon the  lunar-like landscapes of the  Nass Lava Beds. Here and  there across the surface of the  lava flow are poles left over  from the Collins Overland Tele  graph Line Which was to have  linked North Aimerica to Europe by way of Asia.  Gibsons up -  Sechelt down  Building Inspector's report  for the month of October  shows an increase in permits  issued in Gibsons and a decline  in Seohelt compared to the  same month last year.  Gibsons issued seven building permits in October of this  year as compared to only three  during the same month last  year. The building values were  $162,000 this year and $31,000  last year for October.  For the entire year to date  55 permits were issued last  year compared to 49 this year  In Sechelt three permits  were issued during the month  of October compared with nine  last year during the same  month. Corresponding building  values were $26,000 this year  and $297,000 last year.  For the year to date, 65 permits were issued last year com-  %    pared to 49 this year.  At   the   Nass   Y   the   road  runs west along the Nass River  five miles to Canyon City and  32  miles more  to  Greenville.  With .a boat you can cruise then  to  Kincolith on  Portland Inlet. Canyon City begins where  the   lava   flow   constricts   the  river into a steep-walled gorge.  You   step   off  the   suspension  bridge into a quiet village of  about   a   dozen   large   frame  houses,  two  community  halls  and  a   church.   Behind,   on   a  gently sloping hill leading up  to     snow-capped    mountains,  horses graze and a truck farm  provides   a   pleasantly   green  oasis in what has been a desert of lava and gravel.  East from the Nass Y junction, the road takes you a few  miles to New Aiyansh. The  turn-off is not easily seen ���  marked by just a wooden cross  lying flat in the ditch, but it  you miss it the first time and  get to the Nass Service Centre  instead, backtrack eight miles  and you will find New Aiyansh.  The most distinctive feature of  the new village is the sparkling community hall with its  colorfully painted totemic figures and the giant raven mask  carved above the front door.  Old Aiyansh across the river  and reached only by boat has  been left t�� drown beneath encroaching vegetation. One lone"  ly totem pole still stands to remind the nostalgic visitor of  the large village of three-  storey frame houses, community buildings and tall totem  poles that once stood here.  The Nass is stimulating country to travel ��� easily accessible in the modern manner yet  offering glimpses into the past  with its unearthly landscapes/  its decaying totem poles and  its isolated peoples.

Phillips said the price cut  was initiated by his station and  "it will bite into everyone's  profits." He said other gas stations will probably follow suit  The price of regular gas at  Gibsons Shell also dropped.  Tuesday night it was selling  for 86.0 cents per gallon. Premium gas remained at the old  price  oif  96.0.  Asked What the cause in the  drop was, owner and operator  Charlie   Mandelkau   said:   "3  don't-know'what's happening."  He   said   he   learned   Monday  gas prices at some stations had  been   dropped  so  he  lowered  his own. He said the new low  price can't last long because if  aUows practically.no profit on  a gallon of gas.  '  Harold Phillips said his low  prices would be permanent until the next change. Asked whether the next change would be  up or. down, he indicated that.  the price may go lower.  There is some speculation  that Sunnycrest Esso may be  come a self-serve gas station  but this was not confirmed by  Phillips, He said further details would be available later.  lerson  REALTY LTD.

SCRD land freeze recommendation  (Continued from Page 1)  if the appeal contained a development plan, that appeal  would be rejected because the  board believes in the principle  of the land freeze. However,  Hoemberg said, if the appeal  is based on the agricultural  capabUity of the land the regional district would not comment on the appeal and leave  the decision entirely to the  lands commission. He said the  regional district had no soil  experts..  Regional planner Adrian  Stott later stated that the re  gional district's comments on  an appeal may also depend on  whether the parcel of land in  question is designated in a de  velopment zone or not. He said  some land could be recommended released if it was close  to an urban area.  One member of the public,  Ken Fiedler said, "The whole  thing is a farce." Fiedler said  he had appealed through the  board to have his property taken out of the land freeze and  "we were tricked by Mr. Stott  because he told us to include  our   subdivision   plans."    His  appeal was rejected.  "After three "months you  people (the regional board)  finally rescinded Stott's: opinions and by that time I feel  the damage was done, after so  many adverse comiments."  Fiedler told the board. Chairman Frank West said the board  accepts responsibility for what  the planner does.'  Sechelt planner Doug , Roy  agreed the land freeze Was a'  farce because it., was-'.hot. likely'  that land here would be economically feasible to farm in  today's market. Roy asked  what was being done in the  way of researleh by the land  commission to substantiate the  agricultural capability of des;  ignated land. He suggested that  extensive soil surveys be undertaken to determine what  areas were suitable for agriculture.   r  The land commission representative noted that his department had asked soils experts  to review the Capital Regional  Districti which includes the  Victoria area and the Gulf Is  lands, and that adjustments  had been made in' that area.  He said such reviews were  occurring throughout the province but that it could only  be done in spurts.  Sechelt Alderman Dennis  Shuttleworth asked if the  board would consider a policy  that would take aU lands classed 5, 6 and 7 out of the freeze  but he received no response on  the suggestion.  ,The original motion, present  ed by Gibsons representative  on the, board, Jim Metzler,  caUed f or all lands classed 5, 6  or 7 to be taken out of the  land freeze but that motion  was later altered to state that  lands not suitable for agriculture be taken out of the freeze.  The board also suggested ���  although not formally ��� to the  land commission that land re-  vielws be conducted on a smaller scale and provincial soils  experts handle appeals on an  individual basis to determine  whether or not a particular  piece of land is suitable for  agriculture.  Wildlife club asks for gun law postponement  The following is a copy of a  letter addressed to Mrs. A.  Pressley/ Sunshine Coast Regional District.  Regarding your letter in reference to suggestions in relation to the proposed Shooting  (Control Bylaw, we wish to  draw your attention " to our  club's request for a draft copy  of the proposed bylaw (in our  jprevious correspondence with  your office) to enable our mem  ibers to better understand the  intent and purpose of such a  bylaw and to evaluate (a) what  protection it would affordlocal  residents that existing laws,  acts or legislation does hot  . coyer at this time and ('b)  what restrictions and restraints  your proposed bylaw would be  imposing upon bona fide hunters in this area.  This requested copy (of the  proposed bylaw) has not been  received by our club executives and our first and only information relating to this bylaw has been obtained by reading the articles in the Novem-  iber 5, 1975 issues of the local  papers, which do not obtain  the bylaw's text, but rather 'inform' the area that a bylaw  relating to shooting control has  had first reading at the Regional board meeting.  As the 1975 hunting season  closes in this area on November 30, 1975. we are of the opin  ion that the urgency for sec  ond and subsequent third readings for this bylaw could and  should be postponed until interested groups such as ours have  had an opportunity to review  the text and implications of  the bylaw. Such a bylaw would  not be put into practice until  September 1976 when the *76  hunting season commences.  The Gibsons WildUfe Club  has a four man committee  which plans on meeting with  the Seqhelt Rod and Gun Club  committee to review what little  information has been made av-  atfable in the local press regarding this bylaw and we  again request that further read  ings be postponed by the Regional Board until a proper in  depth review can be made of  this shooting control bylaw.  ���-IR.

We have seen during this  period a great increase in the  range of activities by regional  government, as the Regional  Board moves into social, environmental and recreational  functions with such bylaws as  the gun control bylaw, the  tree cutting, bylaw and the  Cooper's Green proposal.  One would hope, in view of  these changes, to see a comparable increase in the community consciousness of the local public, but one need only  look at the voter turnout figures from the last municipal  elections to see that the oppo:  site tendency is in effect. /  In the Pender Harbour-Egt-  mont area we have approached  this problem by forming a .,  Ratepayers Association .to keep  the community informed and  make the ordinary resident's  voice heard on as many issues  as possible. We have also sup:  ported candidates in the regional elections and in the past  two elections the Ratepayer  candidate Jim Tyner was voted in by large majorities, efefc-  tively giving local people a say  in all matters concerning them.  This year we are supporting  another candidate, John Pater-  son, who served as alternate  director with Mr/ Tyner and  who we feel has the concern  and the experience to continue  his exceUent work.  I can't help but think that  if organizations like the Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers Association existed in  all local communities, we could  eHminate much of the controversy ahd dissatisfaction that  has lately become a characteristic of our public meetings,  and be more assured of developing the Sunshine Coast  in a manner satisfactory to the  majority.  ���JIM CAUSEY, President,  Pender  Harbour and District' Ratepayers Ass'n.

School budget  , (Continued .fromi !P_ige 1)  lier approved by the Department of Education.  Mills reported to the board  that some additional expenditures could be made without  exceeding the budget over-run  but that any deficit incurred  by the end of this year will  be carried forward to next  year's budget and wiU be funded at 100 percent local expense.  Mills said he normally tries  to provide an estimated mill  rate along with the provisional  budget but there are still too  many uncertainties to do so.  He said the pbssibdUty exists  for the null rate to show little  increase or even go down  slightly if the government so  decides.  On a cost per pupil basis,  the 1975 budget compares with  other districts in the province.  For example, in teachers' salaries, the cost per pupil provin-  cially is, $881 compared to $880  here. Operating costs are also  less here with $120 per pupU  average of $131. Administration  as compared to the provincial  here costs $54 per pupil which  the provincial average is $49  Total instruction costs are  higher here at $975 compared  to the oroviheial average of  $972,  The provisional budget will  be studied by school trustees.

By EDNA BELLERIVE  On Tuesday, November 4 the  First Gibsons ^Group Committee met in the scout hall for  our monthly meeting. It was  reported that we did quite  weU on our bottle drive despite the rain. We thank everyone who donated bottles and  we are sorry if we missed  some areas but the boys and  parents were soaked through  after four hours.  We n6w have 40 boys in cubs  and they are spUt into two  packs. Ray Boutilier is leading one group and Mrs; Gail  Pedneault the other. The boys  had a Hallowe'en party recently and have been busy building bird houses which they are  very proud of. The packs attended the Remembrance Day  services November 11 at the  Gibsons Legion.  We now have a Venturer  Company with six boys participating. MaxweU Ham-nej>  smyth is the advisor. The boys  have been cutting alder cord  wood which they are selUng  to raise funds. They have purchased their own chain saw  and hope the orders for their  fireplace wood wiU continue to  come in. Orders can be placed  with Stephen Rhodes at 886-  2974.  You will notice that I have  jumped from a Cub report to  a Venturer report. This is due  to the fact that we do not have  a Scout troop. I mentioned in  an earUer report that we have  boys, a hall, equipment but  no leader. This is still the case  If you could help us fuU time  or part time caU Don Jackson  at 886-9H5��.

Our  Scout haU is going to get a  coat of paint inside and the  roof and other minor repair*  are going to be looked after in  the near future: Be ready fa-  ithers and boys, a work party  wiU be formed soon.  The annual district nut drive  wiU be Saturday, December JS  starting at 10 a.m. These are  good quality nuts at a reason-  ble price so please be ready  for the boys to call.  We are once again going to  sell Christmas trees in December. Thanks to Tom Wright,  who operates a local tree farm,  for the donation of the trees.  Now that truly is a "good  turn."  Next meeting is Tuesday,  December 2 at 8 pm. in Gibsons Scout Hall. Parents and  interested persons are welcome.  Try to take a week in  the  country.

We knew stxmeithiog just hlad to be  done to c_unteract the effect of inflation on those  people forced to live on a fixed income. And so we  lowered our service charges to everyone over 65. At  the same time, we hoped that many other service-  oriented companies would follow suit. And they did.  Today, most banks offer some sort of "preferred  service" plan exclusively for Senior Citizens. For  our part, everyone over 65 pays half he usual service charges on True Chequing Accounts, Chequa/ble  Savings Accounts, and Domestic Money Orders or  Drafts. And there's no commission charge on payment of Utilities Accounts. At the Bank of Montreal,  these reductions apply to all. Senior Citizens, whether they're regular customers or not.  Admittedly, this plan doesn't alleviate all problems for those over 65, but we believe, just as strongly now as when we introduced it, that it's a step in  the rigjht direction.  ed  TrieRrstCartadJofiftarik--  Bank of Montreal  GIBSONS  886-2216  SECHELT  885-2221  MADEIRA PARK  883-2718  *~    DAY and NITE  "WE CAN HANDLE ANYTHING"  AT NIGHT, CALL OUR CENTRAL  DISPATCH NUMBER       885-9747  AND ONE OF OUR TRUCKS WILL  BE WITH YOU IN MINUTES  IN THE DAYTIME, CALL US AT  885-2528  24 Hour Towing Service  Dispatched by Radio  Telephone  886-995*  Saving Farmland.

Sixteen cars enter first Coast rally  !The first car rally sponsored  iby the Sunshine Coast Rally  Cluib was captured by driver  John Edgar and navigator Don  SHack. The two will share a  cash prize of $100 and trophies.  The rally started at Wilson  Creek Sunday at HI a.m., and  took the participants on roads  through Wilson Creek, Roberts  Creek, Gibsons, Sechelt and  HaMmoon Bay. The total mile  age of the course was approximately 100 miles. Sixteen cars  entered the rally that was officially opened by Wilson Creek  resident Charlie Brookman.  Memlbers of the newly organized rally club said the  competition was a great success and plans are already underway for another rally scheduled for Easter.  In  the   meantime  the   club  will continue its activities by  staging rally movies, and holding dances and car washes for  fund raising purposes. The  group will also be making  some renovations to the Wilson  Creek Hall, a member said.  A complete list of last week's  winners was not available at  press time.

The newly renovated shake  mill owned by R. Hartt Crosby,  was totally destroyed by fire  ,last month. The operation was  industrial and considered nonconforming in a residential  zone. According to regional district bylaws, such an operation  may not expand or be rebuilt  if destroyed.  However, a special in-camera  meeting last week decided that  the board will give consideration to the rezoning of the two  lots on which,the shake mill  was located. The rezoning application is expected to be given first and second reading at  the next regular board meeting.  An earlier planning committee meeting felt the .previous  site of the mill was hot suitable and suggested that the  owner be directed towards a  site that might be consistent  with future industrial rezoning.  Land in the Field Road area  was considered appropriate for  future industrial use.  Coast News, Nov. 9, 1975.     O  !L=  SHOCKED?  Af fhe high price of electrical work  in fhe area?

"What concerns me," West  said, "is that precautionary  steps are taken so such an incident cannot happen again."  In the meantime, Captain  Bill Higgs of Gower Point Rd.,  has told the regional board that  he may be able to give some  assistance in the chlorine tank  car search.

The atmosphere was warm and friendly.  It was a happy time for both  diners and servers, and as the  thank you poster said, "See you  next     year."     The     auxiliary  thanks Mr. L. E. Meadows for  his signs and poster, and others  outside the. auxiliary who con  tributed generously.

YEP  ... WE ADMIT IT. We  fell for it and the joke's on  us. The photograph on the  front page of last week's Coast  News showed three Elphinstone  students      celebrating      Sadie  Hawkins Day. When the photos  were taken the photographer  asked for the boys' names and  very naively, he believed them.  So now we make amends.

SUKSHINE SKETCHES  Illegal to tamper with election posters  With jprovinicial election  time rolling around, some of  our telephone poles and  building walls are going to  he adorned with posters ex-  . tolling the virtues of candidate so and so, urging you to  vote left or right or in the  middle.  Campaign workers; in the;  past   h_|re   complained that  some of the posters are being torn down as" fast as they  are put up.  A check with the RCMP  indicates that persons taking down the posters before  the election can be. andih  fact will be charged under  the public mischief act. That  act provides for a maximum  $500 fine or 60 days in jail.  It should also be pointed  out that the Workers' Compensation Board will not allow'- posters on telephone and  Hydro poles. Campaign work  ers are advised that any posters placed on such utility  poles -will be immediately  (and legally) torn down.  The report that came out  of Sechelt council last week  stating that the village had  received approval for . a  $38,1126 TLEiP grant was not  correct.  Village Clerk   Tom  Wood  said   after   the  story  was already in print: "I was  under the impression it had.  been approved." The federal:  governmetat  notice  .to   the  village was an acknowledgement of application and not  aii approval of the application. /The ;$38,125   figure   is  for total wages.  The actual  _jHP .   application     involves  $45,750.  Winners of the pillow raffle in the Ladies Auxiliary  to Legion Branch H09 were  Mrs. Maude Krintila and  'Mrs. Inez Maerz.

Mrs.  Ivy Fiedler took home the  $100 from last week's lions  400  club   draw.   Ticket  was  drawn   by   Britt   Vlarcoe   of  Roberts Creek.
