Array Legislative Library, f  W-l  Parliament Buildings/.  Victorilt, ftitish Colunfrta  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15t per copy on newsstands  Second CU���� Mall Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  June5,1979  Volume 34, Number^** 1>)  Racers love our course  First Cycling Grand Prix  comes off well  A portion of the Cycling Grand Prix field leans Into the challenging hill on Highway  101. They had to climb It three times during the race.  This study of cycling action by Fran West catches the strain and the movement of  the cycling race.  And here an tho winners! John Balfour on tha left won the Amateur Race and on  the right young Bruce Spicer who surprised the older riders to take the Grand Prix.  It is possible that a future,champion emerged from the  shadows during the First Annual Gibsons Grand Prix Bicycle  Race on Sunday, June 3. Seventeen-year old Bruce Spicer of  New Westminster, racing in the colours of Caps Crescent of  Surrey, held a leading position throughout the fifty-three mile  race and was first across the finish line to register his first victory in senior competition.  The calibre of Spicer's victory can be gauged by the fact that  the man who was second, just one second behind Spicer in a  gruelling sprint up the Highway 101 hill in Gibsons, was the  experienced Irish international racer Joe Smyth aged thirty-  five.  "Joe was great," said Spicer. "When we were together near  the end he told me just to go as hard as I could. And I did."  On Wednesday of this week young Spicer leaves for Edmonton where he will train under Canada's national coach in an  effort to win a berth in the Junior World Cycling contest to be  held in Argentina later this year.  Locals take part  Spurred on by the example of the professionals, the residents  of the Sunshine Coast were not slow to get into action last weekend. Five hardy souls essayed a modified lap of the Grand Prix  course and won wrist-watches for their trouble.  John Balfour of Roberts Creek came in first in the Amateur  Race followed across the finish line by Dean Cierman of Roberts  Creek and Roald Kley of Gibsons in third place. Unfortunately  the fourth-place finisher's name went astray but the only lady to  enter, Sharry Hancock Steele of Gibsons finished a gallant fifth.  In the Children's Events Scott Husby took first place in the  Six and Under category with Eric Clay and Jason Robinson  second and third. In the Seven to Nine category it was John  Richardson winning with Clark Rasmussen and Jason Scrugham  second and third. In the Ten to thirteen event it was Wayne Sim  in third place followed by Brian Rasmussen and Paul Darby.  Only two girls entered both winning prizes. The lucky two  were Lisa Krygsneld and Pamela O'Donaghey. The Best  Looking Bike contest was won by the youngest competitor  Jason Robinson with Harold Kunstmann runner-up.  Work to start immediately  Water Corridor  gets clearance  It may stilt be a dry summer for the people of West Sechelt  but water could be gushing from their taps by September 1st if  all goes well. At a press conference held in the offices of the  Sechelt Indian Band on Friday, June 1st, it was announced that  negotiations to facilitate the construction of a Utility Corridor  across Sechelt Indian Land had been successfully concluded  through the joint efforts of the Indian Band and the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board.  Work on the water line portion of the corridor which will take  Chapman Creek water to West Sechelt gets underway on Monday, June 4th, and Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon is  hopeful of having it completed by the end of August.  Regional Board Chairman Ed Nicholson who twice went to  Victoria to speed the agreement, paid tribute to the co-operative  effort made by the Regional Board and the Sechelt Indian Band.  "It is a prime lesson," said Nicholson. "If we can lessen conflict  at the local level we are much more likely to achieve our aims  with the senior government. By September the people of West  Sechelt will be whole-hearted in their agreement.  Area F meeting  West Howe Sound (Area F) will hold a special meeting In  Langdale School on SATURDAY, June 16, at 7.30 p.m.  The meeting Is open to all residents and property owners In  Area F, and especially Granthams, Soames, Hopkins, Langdale,  Williamsons and the North Road Ana.  The agenda Includes reports and proposals that will affect  thla area.  1. Langdale ��� Glbaona Highway By Pan  2. Langdale Glbaona Sewers  3. North Road Water Service  4. Parks and Recreation Proposals.  5. Eaao 00 Tank Proposals.  6. Glbaona Marina  7. Specified Area Funding ��� Area E-F-Gibsons  8. Settlement Plan Committee Reports  For further Information call Area F Director David Hunter -  886-7075.  Herbicides for schools being considered  A policy decision on the use  of Herbicides on School  playgrounds was deferred  to the June 28 meeting of  the School Board because all  relevant information was not  yet to hand.  The Board had approached  the Elphinstone students who  have not yet been able to do  the required research. Their  last summer's Forum on  Herbicides dealt mainly with  2,4-D and related compounds  and the data accumulated  was given to Mrs. Miriam  Doucet and the SPEC organi  sation. The students hope to  have replies to their queries  about the herbicide recommended by Bob Rutter,  Maintenance Supervisor.  Mr, Rutter sees no alternative to the careful and minimal use of herbbicides to control weeds and on the advice  of the Environment Ministry  is suggesting a product called  Round-up and has sent two  of his staff to be properly  trained and qualified in its  application.  Round-up is claimed to be  non-toxic, non-volatile and to  leave no residue, and Rutter  estimates four gallons per  year will be enough for the  playgrounds in the whole  district.  The Union (CUPE) have an  established position that if  hervicides are not used,  either in general or on specific  sites because of local pressure, all manual work to control the growth must be  carried out by Union members  at the appropriate rate.  They would have no objection  to the Board charging back  these costs to the community  involved if that was necessary,  but they have rooted objections to the idea that community, members would come  onto school property to trim  the grass.  Mr. Rutter estimates the  cost of cutting the weeds along  fence lines would cost an extra  $14,000 and will present a  detailed cost-estimate at the  June meeting.  After a period of two years  in which salaries have increased 14.5% and utilities  about 20% the School Board  agreed on Thursday's meeting  to raise the rental charges on  school facilities.  The new rates will be as  follows with current rates in  brackets: Booking charge ���  $2.50 per booking ($2.00);  Classroom rental - $1.20 per  hour ($1.00), and 604 per half  hour (504); Gymnasium,  excluding showers but including change rooms, small  elementary activity rooms -  $1.75 per hour ($1.50); large  elementary activity rooms -  $3.50 per hour ($3.00);  Chatelech and Pender Har-  Please turn lo page eight  Spicer's time for the demanding, hilly course which saw  the racers complete three  laps racing from the Sunnycrest Mall to Flume Road in  Roberts Creek by way of  Lower Road, thence to the  highway to Pratt Road and  along Gower Point Road and  Glassford Road through the  Lower Village to the finishing  hill, was two hours, sixteen  minutes, and nine seconds.  Irishman Smith chased the  youngster all the way to the  finish line and was only one  second behind him at the end.  lite biggest money winner  of the weekend was the third  place man Martin Willock of  Victoria Wheelers. In addition  to the $120 prize Willock won  for his third place finish, just  twenty seven seconds behind  Smyth, he took top prize  money in the Miss and Out  event held Saturday night,  winning $150. Spicer took  $200 for his first place finish  and Smyth collected $150 for  his second place finish in the  Grand Prix.  Willock was followed across  the line on Saturday night by  T. Stolicker and D. McClellan  in the Miss and Out which  saw one rider dropped at the  conclusion of each lap from  Sunnycrest Mall via Park Road  to Reed Road and North Road  thence back to the Mall.  The main honours of the  weekend, however, went to  young Bruce Spicer and perhaps Gibsons itself. "It's a  great course," the riders  agreed unanimously after  the race. They suggested that  this should be an annual affair  and said that the course  offered great variety and a  real challenge.  Spicer also won the B event  for Junior Riders, naturally,  and R. Goletskl won the C  event. First lady finisher was  Dawn Deeley and Roger  Sumner was the First Veteran  to finish, happily collecting his  prize - a case of Molson Canadian beer.  They are a dedicated lot,  these racing cyclists, competing in two or three races a  week during the summer as  well as track races in Vancouver on Wednesday of  each week. The advent of  their exciting and demanding  sport to the Sunshine Coast is  a welcome event.  Joan Quarry is obviously pleased with the fine tray  she received on the occasion of her retirement after  fourteen years as secretary of the Sunshine Coast  District Scouts. The award was made at the Annual  Dinner meeting of the Schouts.  Scouts hold  annual dinner  On Monday evening,  May 28, the Sunshine Coast  District of Boy Scouts held  their Annual Dinner Meeting  at the OAP Hall in Sechelt.  Doug Honeybun, the retiring  President opened the proceedings by introducing the  Head Table guests who were:  Bob Chattey, Vancouver  Coast Region, President and  his wife, Sheila; Bob Simmons, Honorary Vice President and Liaison Representative, Vancouver Coast  Region and his wife Grace;  Arnold Murray, Assistant  Regional Commissioner;  Jack Adair, Regional Field  Executive and his wife Chris;  the Rev.

Bob Chaltcy delivered the  address beginning by saying  how pleased hc was to visit the  "far-flung outposts in order  to get a feeling of the districts which he has been asked  to serve." The main part  of his speech dealt with the  Camp Byng Development  Fund. Money is being raised  to expand the Roberts Creek  facilities which are presently  over booked. It is hoped to  have new cub camp sites,  an all-weather camp, and a  wilderness camp and eventually a new training centre  for the leaders.

There  are always a lot of headaches in getting  any community enterprise underway  and Pamela certainly had her share of  them in the days preceding the visit of  the racing cyclists.  She persevered, however, and the  events came off on schedule and relatively safely. In the post-race discussions  the cyclists we spoke to were united in  their praise of the course as a real test of  their skills and endurance and one of the  first to finish volunteered the opinion that  this should be an annual event. We concur. The bicycle race is the kind of activity  which can add a little spice to the reputation of the Sunshine Coast and painlessly  help to make it known as a vital and interesting place to visit.  Next year we can expect an international field of cyclists as the word of  mouth advertising of those who participated spreads among the competitors  south of the border. The Gibsons Grand  Prix is a welcome addition to the growing  list of attractive events which form part of  the Sunshine Coast summer.  BC sets precedent  A release from the Lands Directorate of Environment Canada received  recently is most laudatory on the subject  of the B.C. Agricultural Lands Reserve.  Under the heading of "B.C.'s Agricultural Land Reserves a Success," the release  says that the B.C. Land Reserves are  proving an effective means of preserving  farmland. "The loss of agricultural  land," says the release, "is a national  problem and the success of the B.C.  approach is a significant step forward in  the resolution of the problem."  The Agricultural Land Reserves were  established under British Columbia's,.  Land Commission Act, passed in 1973.  All lands capable of food production, as  defined by the Canada Land Inventory  were included. Approximately 11.5  million acres, or 4.9 percent of the land  area of the province are affected by the  1 >islation.  The purpose of the Lands Directorate's  study was to assess the effects of agricultural zoning on land use and landholders in B.C. It is significant that 80%  of land-owners interviewed during the  study were in favour of the preservation  of agricultural land.  That the preservation of agricultural  land in Canada is important has been  obvious to the thoughtful for many years.  In the province of Quebec virtually all of  the arable land is in the valley of the St.  Lawrence RiVer and that is precisely  where the urban build-up has taken  place. Closer to home we have some of  the finest agricultural land in the world at  the mouth of the Fraser River much of  which has been built on. In a world in  which the number of mouths and stomachs is constantly and steadily increasing, the preservation of land capable  of producing food is of maximum Importance. It is to the credit of the province of  British Columbia, and the NDP government, which brought forward the legislation, that this part of the country is  setting a precedent in this important  regard which will in all likelihood be  followed throughout Canada.  .from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  A one-day drive by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Gibsons Legion puts the  Mini-Bus fund drive over the top.  Eric Thompson, who has been the  chairman of Seaview Cemetery board  has asked the Regional Board to take  over the cemetery.  Gibsons council supported by the  Regional Board will visit Victoria to  offer views on the location of the proposed upper levels highway.  The NDP bookstore opens in the  lower village of Gibsons.  TEN YEARS AGO  Keith Wright, president of the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club  tees off with the first foursome at the  official opening of the Sunshine Coast  Golf Course.  Tyee Airways Is now cleared to  operate a dally air service between  Nanaimo and Sechelt.  Two hundred people attended a  dedication ceremony at Camp Byng in  Roberts Creek as the Retallack  Memorial Chapel Is opened.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  An attempt is made to re-institute  the Fishermen's Community Picnic  which was traditional in Gibsons until  the 1930's.  Pressure from various organizations in the area including Chambers  of Commerce of Gibsons and Sechelt  led to the sunken oil barge off Paisley  Island being removed.  Three dead cows floated ashore in  the Soames Point Hopkins Landing  area.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Sechelt School Band placed second  in the International Band Concert in  Abbotsford in the beginners band  class.  A new variety of potato has been  developed by Alfred Charman of Gibsons and is now being developed by  Agassiz Experimental Farm.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Former May Queen Joyce Griffith  crowned pretty Carol Phillips as the  new Queen of Egmont Community  Centre.  A quote from "'..oqgers Tales":  "There had bet -urne Lucullan  libation the night b" e and the smell  of bifge and bu. oil poured no  salve on the drear at.d doleful dawn,"  Wes Hodgson of Gibsons reports  seeing a sea-monster off Gospel Rock  at 2.00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18.  The 'monster' was "a long slim creature which progressed in waves or  loops along fhe surface. Four of these  undulations were visible at once.  On the other side of the beast Bert  Dadswell in his rowboat also saw It  and added the information that he  had seen It three times the previous  day.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Possibly the most discordant  meeting in the history of the Sechelt  Peninsula Board of Trade, held at the  Sechelt Inn on May 30, saw W.H.  Aggett read a report attacking the  local press as being Irresponsible.  When Aggett found out that nobody  agreed with him he resigned.  The Coast News congratulates  newly-weds Jack Marshall and his  wife.  100% of the votes from Egmont  and Britan River were favourable,  despite the fact that these communities are not directly Involved,  and with the aid of these late returns  the School By-law passes with the  required 60% enabling construction  to go ahead on schools in Roberts  Creek, Madeira Park, and Gibsons  as well as additions on the Sechelt  School.  Gibsons's Landing, 1930's. Despite the fact that he was for many  years the only physician serving West Howe Sound and the Gulf  Coast to Sechelt, Dr. Frederick Inglis found that there were days in  which he was not kept busy at the practice of medicine. He filled  some of these hours with building. The three-storey apartment block  and the two beach cottages appeared over the years through his  efforts. The Doctor built boats, with Greek letter names, each equipped with spoon oars of spruce, and maintained the floats seen here  for moorage. The boats, and the beach layered with scowloads of  sand, attracted the young from both visiting and local populations  to the Inglis waterfront summer after summer.

Slings & Airows  >*  George Matthews  ���1  I'd like to publicly applaud  colleague George Matthews  for his column this week.  It is the essence of thoughtful,  timely, and compassionate  contribution to the community  that I believe that community  newspapers should be all  about.  I liked George's column  so much that I am resolved  to do something I do rarelyi  I'm immediately going to<  follow advice. I'm going to'  contribute my mite Sis week  in the same alms box in the  hope that some small influence might aid in the attainment of George's aim ��� to  keep celebrating teenagers  a little safer during the time  of their graduation.  Earlier this spring I pleaded  guilty to driving while impaired in Court in Sechelt.  The evening had begun  innocently enough. After  supper I drove a friend to  St. Mary's Hospital to visit  his mother. We stopped for  a couple of beers on the way  home. Then there was a  second stop and in no time at  all there was a flashing light  behind me and I was indignantly stressing that I had not  been celebrating and was  absolutely sober.  The breathalyzer disagreed  and I was fined, lost my  licence, and was asked to  attend the Impaired Driver's  Course. I learned a few things  during that course and I  write this in the hope that if  the few things I have learned  can be picked up by a few  graduates then they may not  need to take this particular  course themselves.  To begin with the penalties  imposed for impaired driving  at the present time are a  serious matter. For first  offence cases the local court  is assessing a $500 fine, plus  a suspension of licence usually  for three months, plus six  months probation and the  mandatory attendance at the  Impaired Drivers' Course.  Second time offenders face a  mandatory two-week jail  sentence, larger fines and  longer suspensions. Third  time offenders face a mandatory three months in prison  and again longer suspensions  and larger fines.  These stiff sentences are  a result of the provincial  government's Counter-Attack  program and, though recently  burned myself, this is one  provincial government program that it is difficult to  quarrel with. When one contemplates the numbers of  people killed on the highways  of North America and in this  province yearly and the awesome costs of hospitalization  for the maimed of automobile  accidents and the large role  that alcohol plays in these  killings and these costs, one  readily understands that a  vigorous program to combat  drinking and driving is an  absolute must.  The out-of-pocket costs and  the inconvenience of losing a  licence are considerable but  by the time one is finished  taking the Impaired Driving  .Course it is impossible to  avoid the conviction that one  is lucky to have escaped as  lightly as one has.  Joan Wall of the Wilson  Creek Community Association  is the co-ordinator of the  Impaired Drivers' Course. The  course is organized in four  segments with different  representatives of the community appearing as guest  speakers. Probation Officer  Neil Mackenzie conveys the  implications of legal probation  and possible punishment for  future offences; Lawyer Bob  Reid explains the pertinent  laws. Sections 234, 235, 236  of the Criminal Code of  Canada are the pertinent sections of the law. Section 234 is  for impaired driving; Section  235 covers refusal of the  breathalyzer test; and Section  236 covers driving with over  eight milligrams of alcohol  in the blood. Each of the  offences carries the same  stiff penalties so once the  driver is apprehended for  impaired driving the die is  pretty well cast. It is a reflection of the seriousness with  which impaired driving is  regarded that it is the offence  in the Criminal Code for which  the accused is legally required  to produce incriminating  evidence against himself.  Dr. Fairer of the Medical  Clinic makes a presentation  during the course which outlines the effects of alcohol  on the human body and the  purely medical long-term  effects of this legal and often  lethal drug are daunting in  themselves. What is surprising is the small quantity  that is required to raise the  alcohol content of the blood  over the legal limit and the  length of time that it takes to  eliminate alcohol from the  bloodstream once the liquor  has been drunk.  The fact of the matter is  that only three glasses of  beer, three glasses of  wine, or two one-ounce  drinks of hard liquor are  enough to raise the level of  alcohol in the blood above  the legal limit and furthermore, despite all pet cures to  the contrary, there is no way  to regain sobriety except  through the passage of time  and two hours is the predicted  required time after the con  sumption of the alcohol.  Incidentally one of the dangers is that the slightly impaired driver, while his reaction time is quickly affected  negatively by alcohol, frequently drives home in a  euphoria of aggressive self  confidence and is actually  killed more frequently than  the very drunk driver.  Corporal Wade of the  RCMP presides over the last  and grimmest segment of the  course, the highlight of which  is the presentation of a film  largely shot at the scene of  accidents. Suffice to say the  grim results of alcohol-related  accidents would never be  recommended viewing for  the squeamish.  All in all, the business of  acquiring an impaired conviction is an expensive and  unpleasant experience. If  the graduate students locally  have someone in their crowd  who is not too keen on drinking anyway, that person  should be encouraged to stay  sober and take on the driving  responsibilities. Besides a  hefty fine and loss of driving  privileges, the Impaired  driver is finger-printed and  acquires a criminal record  which can have long term  results. All too tragically  often, also, death and dreadful crippling can await,  George is right. Do be careful.  Among the many pleasantries of the spring season  is the annual ritual of high  school graduation. Graduation  generally ranks high among  the memorable events of a  young person's life. It is  fraught with ambivalent  emotions, at once laden with  a sad nostalgia and a joyous  release.  Unfortunately, for this  otherwise joyous step into  adulthood, graduation has  also come to mean a great  deal of wild and irresponsible  consumption of alcohol.  I graduated from high school  twenty years ago and even  then, perhaps especially then,  the event expected, almost  demanded, drunken revelry.  Since that time the besotten  tradition has become even  more a part of the event.  Many would say, "What the  hell, let the kids have a good  time. They've earned it."  Others would shrivel in panic  at the prospect of dozens of  youthful revelers painting  public buildings, wandering  drunk and noisy through the  streets, driving cars, throwing  up on parents' carpets and  generally being an annoyance  and danger to the public.  Somewhere between these  extremist views rest those  who would at least prefer to  have some control over the  inevitable.

What can the adults of the  community do to prevent the  trouble, if not the excessive  drinVing? Parents could keep  their teenage graduates home,  mayne tell them they arc not  to go out of the. yard. They  could nag and thereby guarantee a safe but unpleasant  weekend. They could close  their eyes to the whole thing  by either pretending their  teenage son or daughter  would never get involved in  drinking with friends or by  imagining that their graduates  are so well behaved as to  follow parents' instructions to  the letter.  Some parents of course will  simply concede to the belief  that their sons or daughters  are on their own, grown up,  responsible for their own  actions, unneeding and  unheeding of parental advice  and concern. This can be a  reasonable approach if parents have been gradually  allowing their children more  and more responsibility from  a very early age. Often however, it is assumed that  graduation confers some mystic wisdom upon young  people.  Parents who are realistic  enough to know that grad  parties and beach parties  occur in great abundance tnis  time of year and who are concerned enough about their  kids to want to keep things  under control can do a number  of things. They can host parties; they can be drivers, they  can make sure the youngsters  have cab fare, they can forbid  use of the family car unless  driven by an adult. Generally  speaking, more involvement  on the part of the parents  would be a good idea,  As far as other adults in the  community are concerned,  1 feel it would be a mistake to  turn a blind eye on our graduates. The R.C.M.P. won't  turn a blind eye, I'm sure.  When some north shore  schools held grad celebrations  beginning last week, the roadblocks at Park Royal nailed  dozens of drinking drivers.  I wouldn't be surprised to see  the Batmobile in action when  our grad celebrations get  rolling.  The rest of us shouldn't  be too shy to pass on some  friendly advice about excessive drinking, maybe be prepared to provide lodging for  over zealous celebrants.  A willingness to act as chauffeurs wouldn't hurt and maybe keep a few self-breatha-  lizers handy.

Letters to the Editor  An old-timer votes  Editor:  Memory wave lengths go  back in politics to the days of  the reciprocity referendum  when most people thought  that with reciprocity the U.S.A.  would swallow Canada like  the whale swallowed Jonah,  except that Jonah escaped by  regurgitation which Canada  might not.  Then there were mudhole  politics when the candidate  drove around in a buggy and  might give you five dollars to  fix the mudhole in the road  or a bottle of De Kuypers  gin or perhaps both. That was  in Alberta. They would do  no such things in B.C.  There was the election in  our riding in Northern Alberta  when dead people, absentees,  and people who never had  lived and had no intention of  living were on the voters'  list. The enumerator when  asked why said "Veil, I get so  much per name so I tink I  get as many names as possible." Logical if not ethical.  In days gone by at Wilson  Creek election day was a  social occasion. We knew  everyone and chatted about  our kids and our gardens  and when is it going to rain  or stop raining. I used to be  returning officer and Kaye  Franske the pollclerk. She  was the brains of the combination. She steered me  through many a difficulty.  It was an injustice that I got  six dollars and she only four.  Our bums were numb after  sitting on those hard chairs  for twelve hours but we were  willing to suffer for six dollars.  So I go to vote in the recent  provincial election. Being  more or less of a shut in, I  know no-one. Stern looking  scrutineers look at me as if  to say "Watch that old guy  or he will vote twice."  In the federal election the  functionaries did not look so  stern. I knew one of them so  did not feel quite so much  like a Christian thrown to  the lions. Although I have  lived in this beautiful but  cold Canada of yours for lo  these seventy years come next  November, they do not seem  to know I am around yet.  I was not on the voters list.  After all these years I have  only one surviving English  weakness, tea at four thirty  p.m., and tea with buttered  toast at two a.m. when unable  to sleep with arthritis pains,  buttered on both sides. So I  had to be sworn. A very nice  lady swore me (no, not at me)  but my hearing is not very  good so I did not quite catch  what she said, but I said  "I do" in a firm voice. But  on arriving home said  "Omigosh, what did I swear  to, supposing those were  marriage vows and if so who is  the unlucky lady I've married."  So now for my little drink  of medicinal brandy before  lunch, for as the good St.  Paul wrote in his epistle to  Timothy,  "Drink no longer  water but take a little wine  for thy stomach's sake  and thine oft infirmities."  So to the editor from  Caledonia stern and wild,  Here's tae ye.  John S. Browning.  Thanks: Joe  Editor:  My dear wife and I would  appreciate, through your  media, saying thank you and  good-bye to our many friends  on the Sunshine Coast;  To the Teachers and Staff  of the Gibsons Elementary  and Secondary Schools who  assisted our children In acquiring a high level of scholastic  education.

Well-organized track meet  At the School Board Meeting Thursday, Trustee  Hodgins made special reference to the Elementary  School    Track   meet    held  recently at Elphinstone,  expressing the appreciation  of Bowen Island teachers,  parents and students who  had participated and enjoyed  Board move set  The on-again off-again proposal to move the School Board  offices from Gibsons to Sechelt is now confirmed. Sechelt Village Council has acquired an acre of land across from the Elementary School which will be cleared ready for construction by  the end of the month.  The office complex, as previously designed, will house the  administrative staff of the School Board, Regional District,  Sechelt Village Council with room for an expanded Library for  Sechelt. The School Board hopes to be able to stay within the'  original budget, but if, as so frequently happens in these days of  inflation, there is an over-run, some of the furnishings and interior decorating may have to wait.  The School Board voted unanimously to accept the new location as proposed by the Village of Sechelt and to approach the  Village of Gibsons to negotiate an extension of their present  lease until the end of the year when the new building will be  ready for occupancy.  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  such a well organized and  successful meet.  Those taking a bow are the  Elementary P.E. teachers  whose District P.E. Committee meets twice yearly  to plan and assess their self-  initiated inter-school programs. They are Ron Buntin,  Bob Cotter, Jim Gray, John  Dowden and Gordon Stevens.  The Bowen Island children  also wanted to extend their  thanks to Elphinstone students who made them feel  comfortable and at home in  a large, strange school.  The inter-school track meet  was organized on an individual point accumulation  basis rather than straight  school competition, with all  children divided into age  groups.  Defective  cylinder  warning  It has been brought to our  attention that a manufacturing  defect has been noted in some  20 lb. propane cylinders  manufactured by Wolfedale  Engineering Ltd. of Missis-  sauga, Ontario. A defective  cylinder would bear a serial  number between 1 to 29,350  (which must not be confused  with serial numbers R-l  to R 29,350).  Cylinders bearing serial  numbers between that range  must not be filled with propane and owners are advised  to return the cylinders to the  place from which they bought  them. Some of these cylinders  may have come installed in  new recreational vehicles,  too.  For any further information,  please contact the Fire  Commissioner's Office,  Suite 1 - 2780 East Broadway,  Vancouver, B.C. V5M 1Y8  or telephone 251-3131.  Younger  generation  helps out  You would have a hard time  persuading Frank Bezanson of  Gibsons that the younger  generation isn't all it should  be. Frank help out with the  Welding Class at Elphinstone  Secondary School and when  illness laid him low for a while  recently a dozen students from  the high'school along with  their teacher came down to  Frank's place and voluntarily  cleaned up his yard, taking  care of those little chores  which he had been unable to  attend to during his illness.

Maybe  he liked them better than  people, but just as with everything else, he went to extremes. Had twenty-seven  of them at one point. It was  insane. "Come on, guys!"  he'd holler after dumping  three jumbo cans of cat food  into an old hand-basin. And  they'd hit that kitchen mewling from all corners of the  house, o ragtag feline army of  every conceivable size and  breed, converging on that  king-size bowl in a furry,  mongrel horde to lick it clean  as a whistle. Steve'd stand  there laughing to watch them.  Yeah, he sure did like cats.  Maybe he should have been a  veterinarian instead of a  truck-jockey.  The hut log goes battering  by and shuns to a halt somewhere far below. Suddenly  ll's over. A final few pebbles  patter past and then then  are only fading echoes and, at  last, a deep, uncanny silence.  Distantly, he bean the excited  voices of the approaching  rigging crew. Through some  outlandish miracle*, he la  still In the land of the living,  but he Is not entirely unscathed. Shock still holds  the pain In abeyance, but  Steve can sense Its Imminent  onslaught. His right aim,  which absorbed most of the  Impact when he waa thrown  against the door, b already  beginning to swell like the  flexed bleep of a weight*  lifter. Worse than that, he  can barely breathe, and there  Is something wrong with his  jaw. But most frightening of  all, he seems to be paralyzed.  Christ, maybe bis back's  broke! By a sheer effort of  will, he manages to raise  himself to a semi sitting  position, falling back weakly  with a gasp of profound relief.  At least the spine teems to  beta one piece.  Another thing Steve did for  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  a while was race stock-cars.  He was pretty good at it too.  Had a sponsor, and competed  in meets all over the province.  Picked up several trophies.  Funny thing, though. In a  racket like that, where the risk  of getting wiped-out is higher  than most, he never had so  much as a minor smash-up.  Below him, they've reached  the crumpled rata of the track.  "Hey, there's no one In the  bloody cab!" a puzzled voice  exclaims quite clearly.  "Shit, he must have jumped  or been thrown out," a  second voice reasons. "Let's  search the hill. Maybe he's  okay."  Immobile below the precariously balanced hemlock,  Steve would yell down hb  position, but he can barely  breathe and his voice won't  work. So he waits mutely,  the pain beginning to throb  through him In nauseating  wavea. Hb cheat feels as  though Its been hit with a  sledgehammer. Must be  bleeding Internally. Hope to  hell those guys hurry up.  Finally, the sound of brash  crunching very close at hand.  The guy's about twenty-feet  to the left and slightly above  him. Then, horrifyingly, he  sets foot on the unsteady  hemlock. Oh Jesust After all  this, b be going to get snuffed  anyway through someone's  unknowing carelessness?  If he could only shout some  kind of warning, but he can't  make ��� crying sound. It'll  be all she wrote for sure  If that log drops on him! Then,  with a surge of utter relief,  be hears an excited voice:  "Quick, over here. I've found  him!"  "Is he alive?"  "He's breathing!"  Last place I worked with  Steve was up the McNab  Creek Valley, a couple of years  back. I was hooking on a  track-loader.   The   road   to  where we were yarding was  hairy as hell - six or seven  switchbacks that zig-zagged  up the side of that hill like  the way to some ogre's  castle. There were a lot of bad,  tight corners, and only a  couple of the drivers would  make the run. Littlejohn,  naturally, was one of them.  One day we loaded him out  about half an hour before  quitting time. When we  headed down in the crummy,  we found him teetering on  a steep bank at the outer curve  of the worst corner. A loose  log had slipped ahead, bunk-  binding him, and he hadn't  been able to make the turn.  He was just sitting there  grinning, his rig stalled on  the very brink of the dropoff, calm as though he were  sitting in the beer parlour.  Had to buck off the log and  hook a timber toter on his  front end. That bitchin' little  rig reared right up on her  back wheels like the Lone  Ranger's horse, but she  managed to pull Steve over.  He was always getting into  jackpots on that haul, but he  never turned a hair.  It's sometime later, and he  b lying ta camp with morphine  keeping the worst of the pata  at bay, wattag for a hell-  copter to fly him out. They  had a difficult time getting  him off that mountain.  Couldn't even move him till  they got a doctor down there  to okay It. Hill waa too steep  for a chopper to lift him off.  Once the doctor gave hb sanction, they tied him to a stretcher and packed him op to  the road the hard way. He's  got four ribs through hb left  lung, a badly braised right  arm and a broken Jaw but,  all things considered, he's  thankful to be around at all.  He b able to talk now with  considerable difficulty.  "I wan't alone In the cab,"  he manages to whbper.   ���  The camp super b taken  aback. "What do you mean?"  he asks worriedly. Is he saying  be had a passenger? b there  another man skill lying up un  that sidehill, maybe dead?  Then Steve Indicates the sky  with hb good hand, and the  push gets the picture.  Finally, the Air-Sea Rescue  chopper arrives. They load  him and hb stretcher aboard.  The camp b shut down for the  day, and a gang of the boys  are waiting to see him off.  Almost without thinking,  be sticks up two fingers in a  peace sign. That really gets  to them. There b a rear of  encouraging shouts and  cheers and - red, green,  yellow - a barrage of hard hata  tosses up like a ten gun salute.  They respect a gutoy man.  Speedy Steve, that crazy  little mother! He'a cheated  the bone merchant again.  Soon as I heard about the  accident, I phoned Steve at  the General Hospital to see  how   he   was   making   out.  "Oh, I'm healing pretty  good, guy. Hey, know what?  The push from the outfit  phoned me this morning.  Asked me to come back.  Said they'd have another truck  for me soon as I was mobile."  It was superfluous even to  ask what his answer had been.  I'd known Steve plenty long  enough to guess.

DECLARATION OF TRUST  I,  .   Of  , Province of British Columbia, HEREBY DECLARE that  I hold my right to apply for and all my Interest in five (S) free common shares in the  capital of British Columbia Resources Investment Corporation, IN TRUST for the  sole benefit of the Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation, a society incorporated under  the Societies Act of British Columbia (hereinafter referred to as "the Society").  I FURTHER DECLARE AND AGREE that I have (or will, as  the case may be) made application for such five (5) shares and that upon the delivery  to me of the share certificates representing such shares, I will, at the expense of the  Society, do all such things as may be required to effect the transfer thereof to the  Society.

Somehow, miraculously, Miss  Kenedi managed to hold the  work together, avoiding the  pitfall of many pianists, who  in an effort to sustain interest,  play it too quickly. The fact  that an audience full of many  people, who. I'm pretty sure  had never heard this piece,  could be so wonderfully still  and attentive throughout, is  sure proof that this thoughtful performance with many  rubatos in the slow sections  came across most convincingly.  But, for myself, it was the  Chopin Etudes that were  the most spectacular. Miss  Kenedi never seemed afraid  to take time with these  whenever the music demanded it, since, as stated,  she conceived of them not  only as studies, but as very  beautiful pieces in their own  right. She produced some of  the most beautiful changes of  tone colour and the most  sublime pianissimos 1 have  heard in a long time.  Although I feel Miss Kenedi  should still strive for more  polish and self confidence,  in my opinion, her playing is  extraordinarily personal and  communicative.  Gibsons Library  Adult.

As they ride the  red combine harvesting Wilf  McKenzie's wheat, the fanner  quotes the Bible at the self-  proclaimed "agnostic literary  plastic man" and tells him  "I'd rather be a fanner / and  dead broke than work at anything else." The poet is surprised "by this passionate  extravance / exploding out of  a dour transplanted Scot,"  yet at the end of the poem  the two share a common  contentment, if not a common  vision���  "near the suitably fertile  desert  where old Wilf McKenzie and  his red combine  glimpse God in the full womb  of granaries  and I too near the end of my  life  in momentary strength or  weakness  perfectly contented in Saskatchewan."  Reading through Being  Alive, it is obvious that the  source of this common contentment is Purdy's own "passionate extravagance:"  he'd rather be a poet and  dead broke than work at anything else. (Being a poet is  the tough part; being broke  goes with the territory.)  For the poems of a yonger  man, "Being Alive" would be  a pretentious title; for the  twenty-years work represented by this book it is perfectly apt. Purdy has been  around long enough to have  plenty to say on the subject.  (He's been publishing poetry  since 1944.)  Ranging widely in subject  and tone, the poems return  relentlessly to the same  theme, man's attempt to  understand himself and his  relationship to the world in  which he exists. With some  notable exceptions, many of  his poems follow a kind of  loose pattern. They begin, as  "Caribou Horses" does, for  instance, with an everyday  almost mundance event:  "at 100 Mile House the cowboys ride in rolling / stagey  cigarettes with one hand  reining / half-tame bronco  rebels on a morning grey as  stone." He deliberately  says "half-tame" rather than  "half-wild" to increase the  impact of the lines that  follow:  "���so much like riding dangerous women witH whiskey  coloured eyes���  such women as once fell  dead with their lovers  with fire in their heads  and slippery froth on thighs"  The half-subdued sensual  violence incarnate in the  horses becomes, in the next  lines, something not only  elemental but legendary,  larger than the landscape  itself:  ' 'Beaver or Carrier women  maybe or Blackfoot squaws  far past the edge of this valley  on the other side of those two  toy mountain ranges from the  sunfierce plains beyond."  Yet, the next stanza is devoted  to the careful reassertion of  the horses absolutely everyday reality; they are, after  all "only horses,"  ' 'hitched at taverns standing  at dawn  pastured outside the town  with  jeeps and fords and chevys  and  busy muttering stake trucks  rushing  importantly over roads of  mans devising  over the safe known roads of  the ranchers  families and merchants of the  "town"  Even "on the high prairie"  they are "only horse and  rider," "clopping in silence  under the toy mountains.''  In the final stanza this tension between the mythic and  the   mundane   reaches   its  greatest    intensity.    "Only  Horses," Purdy insists,  "no stopwatch memories  or palace ancestors  not Kiangs hauling undressed  stone in the NUe Valley  and having stubborn Egyptian  tantrums or  Onagers racing thru Hither  Asia and  the last Quagga screaming in  African Highlands"  The Caribou horses are only  "lost relatives of these /  whose hooves were thunder /  the ghosts of battering thru  the wind / whose names were  the winds common usage/  whose life was the sun's."  The poem ends on the most  insistently unmythic note of  all:  "arriving here at chilly noon  in the gasoline smell of the  dust and waiting IS minutes  at the grocer's"  In spite of the poet's repeated assurance that these  are "only horses," what  finally emerges from the  neatly balanced tension maintained throughout the poem  is the reader's sense of the  real essence of these horses;  what they are for all times  and all places, a fusion of the  elemental, the mythic, and  the mundane.  Throughout the poems in  Being Alive there tuns this  determination to see and to  express what is eternal in this  momentary life and to achieve  that synthesis of myth and  reality which is essential to  our understanding of ourselves and our place in the  universe. All our great poets  and storytellers from Homer  to Dashell Hammett have  possessed this quality. Purdy  achieves this end through  his own compound of intensely  acute observation and sardonic humour. He seldom  allows himself to be seduced,  as many poets have, by his  own talent for myth-making.  In poems like "When I sat  down to play the piano,"  a mock-heroic saga of die dog-  beleaguered poet's struggle  to answer the elementary call  of nature in the arctic wilderness, he deliberatedly burlesques this tendency;  ' 'Oh avatar of Olypirian excellence  noble Eskimo youth do your  stuff  Zeus in the Arctic dog pound  Montcalm at Quebec  Horatius at the bridge  Leonidas at Termopylae  Custer's last stand at Little  Big Horn  KEEP THEM DAMN DOGS  OFF  YOU MISERABLE LITTLE  BRAT!"  Purdy says he has- been  influenced "by everybody"  and he mentions Dylan  Thomas in particular, yet  Thomas was one of those  poets who became fatally  caught up in his own mytho-  logizing. If Purdy mskes me  think of anyone it's Ezra  Pound; like Pound he devotes  much of his time to aiding and  encouraging younger and less  publicized poets, editing  anthologies like Storm Warning, and like Pound, he sings  in many varied modes, but  always in a voice that is  uniquely his own. Being Alive  is a must for anyone seriously  interested, not only in Canadian Poetry but in poetry in  the world today.  iff 'fee*' \*k ���  The Gibsons Flea Market last Sunday was very well attended, as this picture attests.  More problems on Bowen  By Maryanne West  After many moons negotiating a suitable site and reaching an agreement with  various levels of Government for the funding of their  new Community School,  Bowen Islanders.are battling  problems again.  In a report to the School  Board, May 31, Terry Clayton,  consultant for CM. Projects  who are building the school,  revealed two potentially  expensive difficulties; the  water supply for the fire  hydrants will have to be  brought either by land line or  from a drilled well costing an  estimated $9,000; and a large,  hitherto unnoticed, outcrop  of rock just below the surface extending some thirty  feet into the northwest  corner of the playing field will  cost $10-12,000 to remove.  There being so little flat  land available for recreation  on Bowen, the Board agreed  to explore all avenues of  Government help before deciding maybe to shorten the  field.  Clayton assured the Board  that the school will be completed for September even  though they're presently a  week behind schedule, and  hopefully under budget.  Rock on the playground  isn't Bowen's only worry.  Apparently the Boundary  Commission is looking into  the possibility of transferring  Bowen Island to the West  Vancouver School District.  It is an idea which may  look straightforward and rational on paper but which does  not meet.with the approval of  the majority of parents who  intend to fight it every inch of  the way.  A lack of official communication on the matter has led  to much speculation and one  understands the Islanders'  belief that West Vancouver,  with a falling enrollment,  looks with interest at a hundred or so students plus the  extra tax base right on their  doorstep.  A meeting of the Bowen  Island Community School  Association on Tuesday last  resulted in a telegram being  sent to the Ministry of Education supported by fifty-five of  the sixty people present,  demanding the Boundary  Commission be disbanded  because there is no dispute,  nor any change needed.  Parents felt the opportunity  appropriate to express not  only their satisfaction with  School District 46 but in particular their appreciation of  Chairman Douglas' and Secretary Mills' efforts on their  behalf. A'so that all the  services of the School District,  from specialists in many fields  to help for children with special needs have been available to their children too.  "Bowen feels threatened"  said trustee Hodgins and to  support their position in case  Victoria is determined to go  ahead with the Boundary  Commission the parents have  put together a twenty-four  point questionnaire for the  two school boards. Questions  on policy which make it clear  Bowen Island wants any  decision made on the basis  of their children's needs and  what will be best for them in  the long run.

By  What has been the biggest  selling record in England over  the last two years? Well I  thought you would never ask I  The answer, if you are ready  for it, is New Boots and  Panties by Ian Drury and the  Blockheads. Yes, that record  has outsold Abba and the Bee  Gees and leads the New  Wave Club over Blondie and  Elvis. To understand Ian  Drury's popularity we first  have to know what it is to be  a Stiff artist.  Stiff is an independent  record label and the biggest  success story of the last three  years. Scores of small record  labels have sprung up thanks  to punk and the new wave.  Artists that were either rejects  from the major labels or  idealists wanting to avoid the  packaging of the big companies put out records on their  own or with the help of local  record shops. Stiff records  started in one such London  shop as a joke and they  are now laughing all the way  to the bank. Their first ventures such as Nick Lowe  singles and the First Damned  album went virtually unnoticed by the music public.

The turning point came with  the Stiff's Live Stiff's tour in  the fall of 1977. The five  major (but still unknown)  Stiff acts were put on a bus  and they toured the U.K.,  had fun and found fame in  the process. The label recorded the proceedings and  the album, Stiffs Live, is the  best new wave compilation  album to date and deserves  a place on your turntable,  The performers included an  ex-hippie named Larry Wallis  7) Can  8) Meat Loaf   Bat Out of  Hell  9) Village People   Go  West  101   Toto  singing I'm a Police Car;  a midget Perry Como imitator  named Wreckless Eric; and  the then little known threesome of Ian Drury, Nick Lowe  and Elvis Costello.  Not too long after the  tour Stiff co-founder Jake  Riviera took Lowe and Costello and formed his own label  Radar records and aimed for  Global domination. Stiff  seemed in danger of folding  but was saved by some  serious house cleaning and  the advent of New Boots and  Panties. Released two years  ago the album entered the  upper region of the album  chart and has been there ever  since. What is the album like?  Well, it's round and has a  hole in the middle, and it's  different; it's not rock and roll  but I like it. Imagine a solid  but twisted disco beat with  hoarse Cockney vocals and  songs titled Clever Trevor,  Wake and Make Love and the  classic anthem Sex and Drugs  and Rock'n Roll. Then add  lots of humour and you have  a record that has sold nearly  two million copies.  Stiff managed to get the  Drury album, the live album  and the first Costello record  released in North America  but couldn't get any promotion for the Drury album and  hence it gathers dust in most  record stores. Now Stiff  has a new deal with Columbia  records who hope to turn the  Stiff line into a gold mine.  So be prepared for albums  from Rachel Sweet and Lena  Lovich, female Stiffs who have  had hit singles in the U.K.  Also hold your breath for the  new Drury album due soon  and I hope Columbia release  something by Wreckless Eric.  For now, do yourself a favour  and buy some new boots  and panties, you need it.  Golf  By Ernie Hume  On Sunday May 27, a team  of Sunshine Coast golfers  journeyed up to Powell River  for the annual golf match,  Sunshine Coast was defeated  by a score of 40 to 3.  The early morning travelling (5.30), the skill of the  Powell River Club, plus the  difficulty of the golf course,  proved too much of a handicap  for our men and ladies. A  return match later this summer at the Sunshine Coast  Golf Club will enable our golfers to seek revenge, and  allow the club to return the  favour of an enjoyable dinner  and day long hospitality.

For example did you know  that "A quarter of a century  after the DDT breakthrough,  there are more insect species  of pest status than ever  before, scores of major pests  have become resistant to  insecticides" (Dr. Van Der  Bosch) or that "American  farmers thirty years ago  used 2,265 tons of pesticides  and lost seventeen percent  of their crops before harvest?

Do you agree with the five  tests of the evidence of  education - "correctness and  precision in the use of the  mother tongue; refined and  gentle manners, the result  of fixed habits of thought  and action; sound standards  of appreciation of beauty and  of worth, and a character  based on those standards;  power and a bit of reflection;  efficiency or the power to  do?"

That one drip from a leaky  faucet or drain wastes 175  gallons of water per month. If  it's not water it is also expensive and wastes scarce  energy?

A suggestion for something  most of us can do and which  may be of value even in a  rural area such as this is to  plant a tree.  "The act of planting a  tree doesn't seem a vciy substantial thing - it seems like  a miniscule event in the world  that tears down forests with  impunity...and anyone who  buys lumber for a house or  a picnic table is making a  demand on forests, and is in  effect helping deforest the  land."  The forest industry is  interested in trees having  economic value, lt has enough  research facilities at its  disposal to know of the rather  vulnerable effect of mono-  culturing. Yet when reforestation does occur, a single  species of high economic  value is often planted over a  large area. The single species  of course invites disease and  parasites of thai species..  When the individual goes  forth to plant a tree, things  change somewhat. The  species he plants will be of  his own choice, chosen perhaps because he has a fond  memory of that kind ot' tree,  because ii has aesthetic  appeal or jus; because it was  easy tocorc.t. oy.  It's interesting to note  that iv'eri some of the "bac,  guys" cat. turn out to be  "good guys'' wf.en it comes to  tret-planting.

One bush is loaded with  the dread contageous black  spot which means the others  will soon follow. Last year I  cut them all down but this  year I am going to try to defeat  this bubonic plague of roses  with sprays, powders and anything else I can muster.  In any case to heck with  anything that isn't performing, I have fallen madly  in love with a delightful  little shrub called Potentilla.  This plant is the ancestor of  the rose which you will recognise as soon as you see its  darling little five petaled flower which so closely resembles my favourite antique  rose. Potentilla is a tough  and hardy thing, as were most  ancestors. It will cheerfully  produce bright yellow flowers  all summer and into the fall in  spite of little water, poor soil,  and a hot location. It is  tolerant of alkaline soils and  and becomes, if not tidied  out, next year's plant. It is  these little babies that you can  be terribly generous with.  Annuals are more showy  plants but are really only good  for one year though sometimes their seeds survive the  winter and become next year's  volunteers. Most perennials  have been going for hundreds  of years and their reliable  flowering and fragrance will  always be a tug at the heart  strings, a lingering memory of  long gone summers and home.  I am tumbled into a helpless  reverie by the fragrance of  phlox, lilac and alyssum...  shades of silk dresses, tanned  boys in white ducks and long  carefree days of dappled sunshine.  But back to the business at  hand. As soon as you have  transplanted the annuals from  your seed boxes into the garden we will restock the seed-  boxes with perennials for  next year. Now, when visiting  friends, make a note of the  name of any plant you particularly admire and we'll grow it  Should same firm  be used always?

Sechelt citizens express paving concerns  By Allan Crane  It was one of those days  at the Public Hearing held at  the Senior Citizens' Hall on  Wednesday, May 23, 1979.  There was much misunderstanding with regard to a re*  tion with a portion of Block 10,  the horseshoe shaped property overlooking Porpose Bay  and Sechelt Inlet.  Some of the misunderstanding arose from legitimate  concerns of Sechelt citizens  over matters such as paving of  zoning application in connec-   roads and land use.

The history of this 17 acre  block of land goes back to  1975, and when zoning was  discussed it was with regard  to the total land package.  A portion of the land, however, was subsequently mortgaged in order to secure  financing, and this has led  to two applications rather  than one. It was always the  intention, however to develop  thc whole area for multi-  family use, and Norm Watson  said that rezoning of part  only would make It difficult to  obtain financing for the  development.  It would certainly seem that  Sechelt suffers from a long  history of broken promises,  and its citizens have long  memories of unfulfilled undertakings. Apprehension waa  apparent from a canvass of  people attending the meeting  which was conducted by the  Sechelt Ratepayers' Association which -showed twenty-  three people opposed to the  rezoning and only three in  favour.  MY SINCERE  THANKS  For Your Support on May 22nd  RAY SKELLY  Authorized by Ihe Mackenzie NDP Association  After Sechelt Ratepayers'  Association President Chuck  Dowman presented these  figures to the Meeting,  Sechelt resident Ed Nicholson  enquired as to whether or  not Council was in full agreement with the rezoning.  At this point, Mayor Nelson  replied that Council was  unanimous in this, apparently  forgetting that he had cast  the deciding vote in a split  decision at the Council  meeting of April 18 which  approved the rezoning application.  Alderman Macdonald  said that he had voted against  the application because he  felt that It would be reasonable to see what would be  done with that portion of Lot  10 already rezoned before  approving the remainder.  There was laughter as Alderman Kolibas said that she wu  the other alderman who  voted against the unanimous  decision because no bond for  road development had been  posted with Council and she  was uncertain as to whether  or not this portion of Lot 10  had originally been scheduled  for R 3 zoning. She now knew  that this had been the intention, and a bond for road  development has since been  posted with Council.  In response to a question  from Ron Slack, Norm Watson  said that there would 102  units at a density of 5 to 6 per  acre. Larry Macdonald said  that the maximum number  permissible would be about  182.  "I'd sure like to have this  misnomer cleaned up," said  Norm Watson with regard to  what has come to be seen as  "high density" housing.  The official Sechelt Village  Community Plan shows areas  (including all of Lot 10) as  "Higher Density Residential"  as distinct from other areas  which ate termed "Single  Family Residential." "It is  not high density housing  which is planned for Lot 10,"  Norm Watson said, and he  added that a designation between low and medium density  housing would more accurately describe the proposed  subdivision.  Ron Slack said that there  were many houses for sale In  the area and he wondered if  the proposed development  was necessary. Alderman  Thompson replied that it wu  not the concern of Council  whether or not businesses  made money, and that sales  were the developers' problem.  "Development is up to the  developer," said Mayor  Nelson. "Will it look nice  when it's completed," he  said. "I think it will."  Ken Corbin said that he  would be more in favour if  there was some assurance that  the road . would be paved.  Norm Watson said that  blasting was being done  tonight and that paving would  commence within ten days.  Alderman Thompson said  that the subdivision would  not be approved until the  road is paved.

It looks as if it's not only  the human population who  consider the Sunshine Coast  as an ideal place to spend a  few days.  Last week, Jens Poulson of  Selma Park had a pigeon drop  in for a visit, the number on  its band was 8331978 Calgary,  that's quite a distance to fly  for a friendly visit. The  bird has been around for a few  days now, and seems to be  making itself at home. It  could, of course, just be  resting up for another leg  of its voyage. In the meantime, Mr. Poulson would  appreciate any knowledgeable  information about the best  type of grain etc. to strengthen it up.  While we're on the subject,  does anyone know how to  get a hold of the clubs in  Calgary? It would be interesting to get a hold of the owner  and find out when the bird  left home. In the meantime,  I'll clip this out and send it  to a newspaper in Calgary  and see if that comes up with  any results.  Mr.     Poulson's     phone  number   is   885-2677.   His  address is Boz 1194, Sechelt.  Vulture.  I guess it must have been  about two months ago I wrote  about the large black bird  in Roberts Creek with the  nasty habit of dining on  chickens. Jamie, the Conservation Officer thought that it  could have been a vulture,  so I talked with a few people  about it. One eye witness told  me that ravens would occasionally do this. I hope thst that  was not the reason for the  disappearance of the two on  Lockyer Road. As I've said  before, ravens come under  the Protected Species Act.  Today, (Sunday), I was  talking to Catherine Nelson  on Tyson Road, she verified  the theory about the vultures.  In the last few days, she's  lost at least two chickens.  One of the times she saw the  culprit clearly, and identified  it as a turkey vulture. There's  no mistaking them when you  get a good view of them,  their size and red head are  pretty distinctive. So I guess  you were right Jamie.  Odds *n ends.  The Sechelt Rod and Gun  Cub are having a Father's  Day seafood dinner on June  17th. Contact Len Clarice at  885-9858 for tickets.

Neil Neilsen travelled  to Arkensaw from April 29  to May 14 to compete in an  archery meet. Until then, he  had never shot a crossbow  before, but, he beat the American National Champion  Rodney Boise in the Hunt  Shoot.  Neil doesn't attribute his  success to "beginner's  luck" because, as he said,  "If it had been one shot,  maybe, but it was fifteen  shots." The Hunt Shoot involves five deer targets lined  across. There are three  positions at which the shooter  takes five shots with a crossbow. As mentioned, prior to  the meet Neil had never  taken archery up as a sport.  Robin Allen, of the Mediaeval  Society, and some friends  persuaded Neil to go for the  fun of it. Now Neil belongs to  the Society and is building  his own crossbow. There  were no other students belonging to the Society, nor  were there any at the meet.  "It's an interesting sport,"  stated Neil, "it's special,  you compete against yourself  and against others." There  isn't too much training to the  sport except practice, which  can or can't be very demanding on your time, depending  on how ambitious you are.  Neil and the rest of the Society  plan to keep on competing,  although, as you can tell from  the location of the last meet,  it's not easy to find competition.  In September, the Mediaeval Society of Gibsons plans  to hold a meet of their own,  in which Neil will compete.  This meet will prove very  interesting because by that  time Neil and other members  will have much more experience. Also, we'll all have  a chance to see Neil try to  hold on to his recent victory.

Be Careful With Your Ideals  A psychologist has written  about what he calls the  I-F-D sequence - from Idealism to Frustration to Demoralization. That, he says, is the  almost inevitable consequence  of embracing great ideals  and then failing to express  them in practical ways.  Idealism, of course, is one  of our most valuable moral  resources. God help us when  we no longer embrace great  ideals! God save us when our  young men and young women  no longer have visions of  better things ahead!  There are two main varieties of idealism, One can be  called "authentic idealism."  This kind motivates creative  action, stimulates effort,  inspires commitment and  compassion.  But there is another kind,  the kind discussed by the  English psychiatrist, Anthony  Storr, in his book, "The  Integrity of Personality."  Dr. Storr says that many of  us indulge in what he calls  "phantom ideals," ideals  which   "arouse  our  ardour  /"SUNSHINECOAST "  ffifflOMl-PISTRICT  CALL FORTENDERS  Tenders are called  by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District  for the levelling,  raking and removal of  rocks, spreading of  topsoll and seeding of  Blocks 87 to 99  Inclusive being approximately 7,500 sq.  feet at Seaview  Cemetery.

It is these phantom  ideals that trigger the I-F-D  mechanism and lead us into  disillusionment and cynicism.  Ideals which are not geared  to life's realities are silly  things, pretentious things,  fruitless things - mere phantoms. The late Lionel Trilling,  a New York literary critic,  said this of the English  author, Matthew Arnold:  "He steered his course both  by the compass and by the  stars." The fulfilled life  depends on both the stars of  idealism and the compasses  of practicality.  Glancing back through the  long corridors of history, the  late Arnold Toynbee, the great  historian, expressed a fundamental principle of life in  these words: "Apathy can  only be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can  only be aroused by two things:  first, an ideal which takes  the imagination by storm, and  second, a definite intelligible  plan for carrying that ideal  into practice."  Our ideals have authenticity  only to the extent that we  strive and struggle to be very  practical about them.  -/3%-a  NOTICE BOARO  SUNSHINE COAST  REGIONAL DISTRICT  CALL FORTENDERS  Tenders are called by  the Sunshine Coast  Regional District for  mowing and trimming  Seaview Cemetery for  the remainder of the  1979 growing season.

These young  persons who are between the  ages of fourteen and seventeen are called Venturers.  Venturers may be "co-ed,"  the decision is left up to the  particular "Company" (as  they're called). All Venturers  carry with them the Scouting  Principles which Baden Powell  laid down so many years ago.  All Companies are given guidance by a person twenty-one  years or older.  In our community there is  one such Company, of which  I am a member. We have  grown through the years, and  as a result.we are now a nine-  member Company. Our  members Include ��� Rick Neu-  werth, Andrew Winn, Andy  Maragos, Randy Verhulst,  Bryan Lymer, Reg Morel,  Pete McKinnon, Donard  Mackenzie and Advisor Bud  Norris.  Community Service is one  activity we are dedicated to,  and the other is just having  honest fun. If there are  service jobs that need to be  done or if there is anybody  interested in joining call  886-8006.  In my next column I will  outline the 1st Gibsons Venturer Company's various  activities. Stay tuned!  Two chain saws, one Husqvarna and one Stihl, were  stolen, value $1,000.  Jane 1.

The table centre pieces  were made by the 1st Sechelt  Beavers under the guidance  of John MacKenzie.  The framed certificate  presented to the Coast News  by the Sunshine Coast District Scouts was greatly appreciated and was immediately  hung in the office.  Special editorial  We can't resist some follow-up comment on the matter of the 'oil discovery'  at Norman Wells announced last week  and on which we essayed last week.  Last Monday morning while we were  waiting for the Coast News to come back  from the printer's we heard on the CBC  that the oil well at Norman Wells had  been discovered in 1921 and had had a  refinery beside it since 1933. A half an  hour later the Express headlined in huge  type that oil had been discovered.  Now there is something most peculiar  about this announcement of the discovery  of an oil well almost sixty years old. Of  course, there were spokesmen for the oil  industry being quoted as saying that the  press had got it all wrong, etc. etc.  Stock market quotations had Imperial  Oil's stock and pipeline stock significantly higher, nonetheless, and we are  moved to wonder if the stock market is  being manipulated and to what end and  by whom. If there are any answers or  even random thoughts out there on the  subject of the sixty-year old discovery  we would be most interested in receiving  them.
