 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  PARLIAMENT BUILDINOS  VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  August 8,1978  Volume 31, Number 32  Roberts  Creek  rumbling  There has been a great deal  of concern expressed this  week over proposed developments and "improvements"  in Roberts Creek. Noticing  survey flags along Beach  Avenue, a recently returned  resident and sometime reporter for the Coast News went to  interview the local superintendent of the Highways Department, Tucker Forsythe.  He was informed that the existing right-of-way had been  flagged with the intention of  widening Beach Avenue to the  Department's minimum standards which call for 22' of  black top with three-foot  shoulders at either side. Additional footage, perhaps two or  three feet, is needed for ditching. Mr. Forsythe further stated that it was not planned to  straighten any portions of  Beach Avenue and thus there  would be no need to expropriate any property. He also said  that no more clearance than  was absolutely necessary  would be undertaken, and that  every foot of the road would be  judged on its own merit. In  some places, sufficient clearance already exists. He did  not foresee the need to fall any  large trees.  Asked as to when this project would start, Mr. Forsythe  said that no date had been set,  and that commencement next  year was likely. He also said  that the road developments  had nothing to do with the  Roberts Creek Settlement  Plan, lt would appear, however, from Regional Board  Chairman Harry Almond's  commentary at the meeting of  the Roberts Creek Community  Association last Wednesday,  August 2, that the local representatives of the Department of Highways are not insensitive to the wishes of the  people who live in this area.  After all, they live nearby too,  and the desire to maintain the  remaining rural aspects of  Roberts Creek is not confined  to its residents. A committee  was struck at the Wednesday  meeting of the Community  Association to prepare a detailed brief for the Department  on the matter of widening  Beach Avenue, and this committee met on Friday night.  Its co-ordinator, Steve Hodgson, was hoping to present the  brief to the project foreman,  Cec Chamberlain, on Saturday, but neither could be  reached to find out whether or  It seems that Chamberlain  has been charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the  work proceeds with the  least possible inconvenience  to the residents of Beach  Avenue who for many years  . have regarded it as more a  local access road than part of a  highways grid system controlled from Victoria. There  are numerous fences and  hedges which are on the road  allowance and which presently  safeguard the privacy of the  residents on the property to  which they are connected and,  in addition, contribute to the  rural aspect of Beach Avenue.  A judicious choice in deciding  how much to take from which  side of the road allowance will  be essential.  It is also essential that clear  lines of communication be  established between the Department of Highways in Victoria and the Regional Board  so the elected representative  of Roberts Creek can inform  the Department as to what the  residents rather than the Victoria bureaucrats consider desirable for the area. A petition  opposing the proposed developments on  Beach   Avenue  Please turn to Page Sixteen  Water to Pender  again in dispute  By the Pender Harbour & District Ratepayers Association  Publicity Committee  Over Area A Director Joe Harrison's objections the Regional  District August 3 voted to rescind its standing resolution that it  would never become involved in Pender Harbour's water supply  unless asked to do so in writing by the area's representatives.  The resolution was made at a Regional Board meeting last  February 2 following charges by Harrison that the District  Works Department was trying to get involved in the area's  water system in the Kleindale area on a "piecemeal basis".  Once again, the troubled Wise subdivision on East Pender  Bay was at the centre of the controversy. Developer Michael  Wise originally made an arrangement with RegionalDistrict  Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon to have the water system  on his subdivision built and operated by the Regional District as  the beginning of a larger public system serving the Kleindale  area. However it turned out that Wise's property was within  the jurisdiction of the South Pender Harbour Water District and  the deal had to be scrubbed. Wise told the South Pender Water  Board at the time that he would build and operate his own water  system and turn it over to the South Pender water authority  when convenient.

Sechelt Council supports Regional Board  The Sechelt Council went on record that they would support  the Regional Board in their efforts to protect the watershed  areas on the Sunshine Coast from abuse.  At the present time the Regional Board is applying to Victoria  for letters patent, in order to officially assume control of the  watersheds. This is mainly to halt B.C. Hydro from spraying  placed.

Pierce of the Evergreen Apartments on Mason  Road wrote to Council advising that he was withholding  $104 of his tax money. He explained that while the Sechelt  garbage collection was paid  through taxes, he had made  an arrangement with Mr. Cory  for a $15 per month rental on  a garbage container, for the  convenience of his rentors. In  doing so, he felt that he was in  his taxes to balance this.  Council felt that private  deals between Pierce and  Gory were their own concern  and could not be subtracted  from taxes. However, Alderman Leitner agreed to discuss  it with Mr. Gory and report  back.  The Clerk, Tom Wood, reported that Mr. Brander of  Glenmont Holdings assured  him that the soil removed from  the plans for the three-store  complex as they were shown  and suggested modifications  to alleviate this.  Mr. Jorgens, speaking on  behalf of the Economic Study  Program, said that so far,  $2,500 had been committed  from the Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce and Council, plus  between $5,000 and $7,500  had been suggested from the  Regional Board. He requested that $2,500 be made available between the Sechelt  Council and Chamber of Commerce. The matter was referred to the Finance Committee to determine whether  funds are available.  By-law 180, Zoning Amendment, was given final adoption. This will enable the work  to go ahead on the expansion  at the Trail Bay Shopping Center.  The Sechelt Legion requested a donation  towards the  erection of a new cenotaph. A  similar request was recently  put before the Regional  Board. Council referred this  to the Finance Committee  for consideration.  Mr. Mitten of the Baptist  Church asked for Council's  permission to put the small  building beside the church,  adjacent to the library. Council turned down this request as  they were against temporary  buildings. Alderman Jorgensen felt that since the building  had no toilet facilities, it could  not be used while the church  was closed, and also he  thought that Council had already been lenient in their  stipulations over the parking  required for the church renovations.

There have been  only five years in the last seventeen where the July rainfall was less than 25.4 mm or  one inch.  An apology to Gibsons was  made by the Ministry of  Health over the Dr. Bruce  affair. In his letter the assistant Deputy Minister for Public Health Programs, Dr. K.  Benson, stated that he had  reprimanded Dr. .Laing, the  director of the Coast Garibaldi  Health Unit for the arbitrary  decision to transfer staff positions to Sechelt rather than  Gibsons as proposed by the  Board, Final decision of the  location of staff offices now in  Powell River will be made by  the Minister, the Honourable  Robert McClelland when he  reviews the Board of Health's  resolutions and the representations from other agencies  throughout the Coast Garibaldi Health Unit. The Board has  recently confirmed its decision  to request the re-locating of  staff offices to a central area,  specifically Gibsons, where  the Council has offered accomodations by means of a proposed extension to the present  health building.  The Gibsons Fire Department, replying to a request for  input to the village program to  upgrade water service, listed a  number of requirements for  adequate fire protection. For  one, a hydrant in the neighbourhood of the new apartment building, the Executive  Suite, along with improvements to the access road and  the parking area.

Hydrants installed on this new  line would cover the housing  in the neighbourhood of thc  United Church.  Thc Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society sent a letter  of thanks for a four-hundred  dollar contribution which will  be used lo help complete a  photographic display. This  display should be completed  by the end of July, thc letter  stated. At present thc  museum is open five days a  week under work program for  secondary school students,  and on Saturdays with members in charge. Besides the  artifacts collection begun by  Les Peterson, there is a current display of mounted owls.  A message from the School  Board stated their intention  to rent the pool on each instructional day from September 25 to December 1 on the  same terms used in the spring  session.  The Heritage Conservation Branch of the Ministry of  Recreation and Conservation  wishes to add to its inventory  of designated heritage buildings and sites any that have  been recently earmarked by  council. The matter of heritage buildings has been exam  ined in Gibsons in previous  years but in view of feasibility  and expense, none has been  earmarked for this purpose.  With the position of municipal accountant vacant for  some months since the departure of Lois Beard, the Village  has found a replacement and  has appointed Mrs. Edith  Ford, a recent arrival from  Port Hardy.  It arose again at a meeting  of the Regional Board's Public  Utilities Committee May 20  when Mr. Wise announced he  had changed his position and  once more wanted the water  system on his subdivision  taken over by the Regional  District. -Harrison opposed  the request stating that his  Advisory Planning Committee  was still against Regional  involvement in Pender Harbour water supply at thc present time. He reminded thc  Board of its February 2 resolution that it would respect the  wishes of the area's representatives in the matter.  Wise then appeared at the  August 3 Board meeting and  repeated his plea for reconsideration on the basis that  building the water system  himself had severely strained  his finances and hc was in  danger of losing his subdivision. Area B Director Ed Nicholson, who was appointed to  fill the vacancy created by  Peter Hoemberg's resignation  and was not on the Board  when the February 2 resolution was made, was sufficiently impressed by Wise's pleading that he moved the resolution be rescinded.  The Board then accepted a  compromise motion from Harrison that it offer financial aid  to the South Pender Water  Board to assist Wise rather  than becoming directly involved. Indications are, however, that this will not settle  the matter.  A spokesman for the South  Pender Board told Harrison  that although he sympathized  with Wise's problems, he didn't feci it was a responsibility  of the water board to bail out  troubled land developers with  taxpayers' money. Members  of the Area A A.P.C. expressed the same feeling,  arthur Joss said that he was  "absolutely  against"   subsi  dizing Wise, and Jim Tyner  pointed out that any action to  use public money to help Wise  complete his water system  would set a dangerous precedent. Howard White said  that there were many real estate developments experiencing difficult times with the  curreny depressed market,  and the taxpayers couldn't  afford to bail them all out. He  was especially concerned  about what he saw as the Regional Board's "challenge to  thc autonomy of Area A".  "Thc Regional Board never  seems to get the message. It's  tested Area A people on thc  issue of autonomy again and  again and they know we won't  put up with being ruled from  outside. They found out about  this before and they'll find out  again."  McDermott  makes it  John McDermott did not  break the record of nine hours  and twenty minutes for the  swim between Nanaimo,and  Sechelt, but he gave a triumphant shout as he emerged  from the water at 11:20 p.m.  on Saturday night, after fourteen hours and twenty minutes in the water.  Strong currents carried him  seven miles off course; he  landed at Sargents Bay instead of Mission Point as  planned. Only one person who  was on shore to greet him  when he emerged from the  water.  He was accompanied by two  row-boats, plus Gordie Hall  of Sechelt in a power boat.  It says a lot for his stamina  that even knowing that under  thc conditions he would be  nowhere near the record, but  hedid not give up.

BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  School Board  Last week an oversight and lack of  space combined to keep from the pages  of the Coast News a letter from School  Board Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills  objecting to the use made of the agenda  forwarded by the School Board to the  newspapers in advance of School Board  meetings. That such agendas were considered privileged information had not  been made clear in the past but if Mr.  Mills so believed them then we apologize  for use of information before he considered it desirable and for failing to get his  letter into last week's paper.  With that said, however, it would seem  also fair to say that all is not frank and  above board in some of the recent per  sonnel movements which are taking place  in this school district. Some recent personnel matters have left the impression  that this School Board is beginning to  believe that thc less the public knows  what is going on in its decision-making  about personnel the better.  Diplomacy stands always in danger of  becoming deception and deccipt, as  Shakespeare pointed out, is the beginning of a very tangled web. lt is to be  hoped that, in the name of diplomacy, the  School Board is not concealing more  about its decision making from us than it  should. It is after all public funds that  they play with.  About that dinner  One can only regret the bad press  afforded the members of the Regional  Board and the Gibsons and Sechelt  Councils as the aftermath of a joint dinner  held at Casa Martinez recently. With the  governmental set-up that prevails on the  Sunshine Coast it is of maximum importance that the various bodies develop  congenial relationships and a meal together seems a civilized way to approach  the matter.  When one contemplates the governmental scene in this country one finds  federal members of parliament voting  themselves massive pensions after very  brief service. We find party hacks of no  particular ment being appointed to lifelong huge salaries in the Senate. On the  provincial scene we have a government  with a hefty representation of millionaires in the Cabinet voting to ease the lot  of millionaires whilst doubling transportation rates and insurance costs for  Highways  It has been a consistent editorial policy  of this newspaper to speak in favour of as  much control of local affairs as is attainable at the local level. Local government is human and marred by imperfection but at least it is conducted by people  who live in the area and have the opportunity of first hand awareness of the  region and the issues. It seems to us that  the farther away the seat of government  is from the governed the less responsive  the government.  So it is we have consistently supported  the Regional Board concept, with the  feeling that at least we could contact the  people directly who were making decis-.  ions which were affecting us. One area of  considerable local import which seems  relatively immune from local control is  the Department of Highways. It seems  that mysterious decisions are made somewhere and the first that residents know  about them is when the machines arrive  to do whatever is deemed to be the most  recent form of progress.  What brings this to mind, of course,  are the  decisions  arrived   at  by  the  . .from the files of Coast News  ferns  the rest of us. And all this taking place  without a peep of comment from the local  press.  And yet one dinner at a local restaurant  brings down some considerable criticism  on our local governmental representatives. It bears saying that the people who  run for local office commit a great deal of  time to the service of the community  with very little in the way of remuneration  compared to their counterparts at the  more grandiose levels 'of government.  This does not make them above criticism  but unless that criticism makes an  attempt to be fair and confined to matters  of some import for the Sunshine Coast  then we stand in danger of inhibiting or  discouraging selfless public service.  The Coast News felt when the dinner in  question was being planned that it was a  valid exercise in inter-jurisdicional  diplomacy on the local scene. These  views are unchanged.  Department a few weeks ago to widen a  picturesque and obscure beach access  road in Roberts Creek followed by an  apparent decision to widen Beach  Avenue. In the case of the Beach Avenue  widening, it may be that the change will  be minimal and that safety and the law  demands it. This, however, does not  mean that what is happening around us  should not be discussed and win the  approval of locally-elected community  leaders.  That our highways and by-ways should  be re-arranged at the whim of some  bureaucrat living elsewhere with nothing  but rule books and blueprints to guide  him seems an unacceptable anomaly. We  fight furiously among ourselves for local  control of such things as water, deeming  such matters to be of maximum importance in determining the future of the  place we live in, and yet are not highways  of equal import in this determination  although we seem to accept meekly  outside control in the latter case. Perhaps  it is something we should be thinking  about.  5 YEARS AGO  The 1973 Sea Cavalcade surpassed  all previous cavalcades from the  opening war of Pirate Ships to the  final trophy presentations Sunday  night.

Among those  present for the occasion was H.R.  Macmillan of Macmillan Bloedel and  the Hon. Jack Davis. Four performances involving the captured killer  whales are scheduled daily.  It is reported that the Sunshine  Coast Qjeen carried 32,391 vehicles  during the month of July.  15 YEARS AGO  Charlie Brookman landed a sixty-  two pound skate fishing off the Davis  Bay Wharf.

The government wharf, to right of the approach seen here, was disman  tled. The federal Fisheries office was removed. But Irvines  Landing is made of a stuff that does not acknowledge defeat.

For two weeks without  newspaper and without radio  we found it impossible to keep  track of Africa's struggle to  escape from the dying clasp of  imperialism, the torturous and  dangerous chess match between the Arabs and the Jews  in the Middle East, the fortunes of the B.C. Lions and  the Vancouver Whitecaps,  and, yes, the tempests of the  Sunshine Coast teapot too.  And all the better for it.  All good things must come  to an end, however, and this  weekend finds us back at the  same old stand addressing  ourselves to the happenings of  our little sun-kissed piece of  paradise. I would acknowledge gratefully the efforts of  the gallant staff of the Coast  News and my friend George  Matthews in particular for  making my absense inconsequential.  Thc re-orientation process  has not thus far been painful. I  started with the sports pages,  gleaning what I could of the  exploits of our local professional sports teams during my  absense. Then some cursory  skimming of the front pages  assured mc that much is as it  was on thc national and international news fronts.

HMMM! The battle between  thc David of the Regional  Board and the Goliath of B. C.  Hydro continues on its two  fronts of herbicide spraying ���  excuse me, a new word has  entered this particular game.  It has become fashionable to  refer to the distribution of  poisonous chemicals as "sccd-  ing"since I was last on thc  scene. It Is, I am sure, a  change which will have us all  sleeping   peacefully   in   our  beds at night. There's something so reassuring about  "seeding", isn't there? It is a  word that connotes future  growth and hope for tomorrow  and absolutely no one can take  offence. Much better than  "spraying" for , example,  which immediately,, calls, to  mind visions of offensive and  unneutered tomcats.  The Department of Highways is at it again. One would  almost think that whoever is in  charge of planning the future  activities of this headstrong  and uncontrolled branch of the  people's service lies awake at  nights wondering just where  the charm of the area can be  most profoundly assaulted.  Letters to the editor this week  and this bemused editor himself are wondering who wants  Beach Avenue widened. There  have been mutterings about  the Department of Highways  undertaking projects just to  make sure their budget for the  year is spent and therefore  will not be reduced in subsequent years but even with this  to guide us into the unpredictable forays of the virtually autonomous department one is  teminded that Highway 101  has been partially renovated  for some years now and then  left in all its serpentine splendour from thc Jolly Roger to  Earls Cove. Why can't the  ever-busy Department confine itself to improving the  highways and leave the picturesque sidcroads alone? But  that editor fellow wants to say  something about this and who  is a poor columnist to argue.  And, home would not bc  home without a letter to the  editor breathing fire from Mr.  Lee. As usual, thc good man  has a very valid point to make  and some views well-worth  considering though laconic hc  is not. Here again the editor  has over-ruled me and wants  to have his two cents' worth on  this subject.  Nor are we yet finished. To  the list of the provincial government and its pub licensing,  the Hydro determination to do  it their way, the determined  assaults on the environment  by the Department of Highways and on representatives  of local government by other  sources, we have still more.  We return from our sabbatical  to find a ground swell of opposition to the new' marina in  Gibsons harbour. That will  command some attention. And  if that were not enough we  have the School Board getting  into thc picture with some  controversial staff movement!  cloaked in mystery and taking  umbrage with the papers because the story was broken  from the agenda before the  trustees had time to come to  their conclusions. It's almost  as if there was some worry  that the good trustees should  be seen to be rubber-stamping  decisions already made. In  any case recent staff happenings on our school board lend  the impression that beneath  the velvet glove of sweet rea-  sonability there is some considerable administrative iron.  Styles of superintendents may  differ but autocracy remains  autocracy, apparently.  In any case the log cabin on  the side of Bonanza Creek has  become a memory and the  foregoing will keep us interested and involved in the  coming weeks. It's almost as  if I'd never been away ��� but  not quite.    It's good to be  A couple of years ago I  made a terrible and terrifying  discovery about myself. It was  a discovery so disgusting and  so humiliating that only now  do I dare utter it in public.

I  worked like mad for a while,  saved up some money and  took off for a life of wandering,  lt lasted six weeks and 1 was  quivering nervously in an employment line in Britain. Two  months working in a wine cellar and I was hooked again. I  couldn't gct thc monkey off  my back. I ran away again.  Three hours of seasickness  crossing the English Channel  on New Year's Eve. A lonely  night in a Paris train station (I  was desperate) and three days  of hitch-hiking to southern  Spain where I hoped I could  learn from the inhabitants how  to live a normal life. The day  after I arrived 1 was painting  and scraping boats in a Spanish fishing village; there was  no hope.  Since then it has been an  orgy of work. Painting  houses, delivering laundry,  digging ditches, oil barges.  General Motors, finance companies, logging, teaching  school, anything so long as I  have a job.  There will be some of you  who will think that I'm joking  ���that I'm not serious, that  I'm making this up. Let mc  tell you what it's like to have a  work addiction. Along about  Thursday of every week 1  start to break out in a cold  sweat. Friday is over almost  before it starts. 1 can't sleep  on Friday nights. I wake up  Saturday morning at 5 a.m.,  get up, pack my lunch box before thc horrible realization  strikes that there is no work  today. What will I do? I  think of all the money I'm  losing. Sometimes I go to  work anyway just in case I  made a mistake. By Saturday  night, I have a nervous tic; I'm  cranky and on edge.  Sundays arc better. I can  look forward to thc next day  at work. Sunday night is my  favourite time of the week. I  start getting ready for work,  make sure my gear is in good  shape, set the clock for 5 a.m.  and sleep like a baby.  I'm not sure exactly what  thc addictive quality of work  is; god knows it's not the  money. Nobody ever got rich  working for a living and I'm  afraid that that old devil work  has me so snugly in his clutches that I'd work for nothing.  And it's not that I'm particularly good at work.

I am  also pleased to note that you realize something of the quality of life  and thc contribution of the "pioneers" of Gibsons, of whom Lester  Peterson is now ihe best informed  chronicler. I almost said "bard"  because his prose is full of image.  It is my privilege and pleasure  these days lo visit or work in most  parts of thc world.

Congratulations to all of your  staff.  J.K.Kidd,  Secretary-General,  Intcrnation Council  for Adult Education  In reply  Editor:  This is a reply to the letters  from Mrs. Cumming who has expressed criticism of the operation  of the Mini Bus. When the Community Resource Society instituted the service of the Bus, a list of  regulations and priorities was  drawn up and published which  has of course, been amended  from time to time. The Society  was very careful at the outset to  make the public aware that the  Mini Bus was not a taxi service  that could be summoned on short  notice, nor is it an emergency service. To serve the maximum  number of clients, specific runs  had to be established and the bus  users became familiar with them.  One other regulation stipulated  that any user, apart from regularly scheduled ones, had to make a  request for bus service at least  thc day before.  Unfortunately, Mrs. Cumming  requested at 8:30 in the morning  that the Bus carry her and her  husband, the latter in a wheelchair, to the hospital that afternoon. Susan Bunyan, the driver,  explained to Mrs. Cumming that  the afternoon run was fully  booked, but they could be accomodated that morning. This was  not acceptable to Mrs. Cumming.  In regard to the statement that  Susan is quoted as saying, "The  seats cannot be removed," is only  a part of her statement as Susan  did add, "when the bus is already  fully booked".  Officials of the Sunshine Coast  Community Resource Society  have met concerning this matter  and have expressed confidence in  Slings (cont'd)  in every job I've ever done.  No, it's just that I love it-  getting up in the morning,  brown-bagging it, quitting  time, the beer after work, the  work mates, the lifting and  pulling and sweating, I just  can't leave it alone like some  fellows are with liquor or  women. I believe in moderation in all things except for  work. Give me a job, no two,  three jobs and I'm happy as a  clam.  That's my sad tale, friends.  Now you have had a glimpse  of my shame and fallen ways,  you can take the warning.  Never work too much, never  teach your kids to work too  much, and for heaven's sake,  don't begin to enjoy it. The  day you get up and look forward to going to work, quit,  take a vacation, phone in sick,  but don't take that fatal step.  In the meantime if you have  some work to be done���in the  evening or weekends���give  me a call.  CLEARANCE  Susan's ability to drive the Bus  and to maintain good relationships with the persons served.  Jack MacLeod,  Public Relations Officer,  Sunshine Coast Community  Resource Society  Correction  Editor:  I hope you will allow me three  or four column inches to point out  one error and an omission with regard to articles which 1 wrote for  last week's newspaper. These  may have been the result of typographical mistakes or oversight,  perhaps, on the part of your guest  editor who must be among the  busiest people on the Sunshine  Coast.  I seldom slip into solecisms,  and the one in the review of the  chamber music was not mine:  "She is more a mezzo-soprano  repertoire." This construction  does not make sense. I referred  to the evening's soprano, Carol  Challans, whom I described as  more a mezzo-soprano than a soprano, and I suggested that she  concentrate on the mezzo-soprano  repertoire.  The word "facetiously" was  omitted from a part of my report  on the School Board meeting with  the result that it appears that  Trustee Frizzell seriously regards  Davis Bay, with a population of  about 2,000, as more a population  centre than is Sechelt with nine  hundred. Davis Bay is, of course,  unincorporated, and Tim's remark was made, 1 believe, in jest.  In any case, that was how I intended to report it.  I would like to conclude by commending your guest editor,  George Matthews, for a splendid  performance during the absense  of the regular editor who was  away on vacation for the past  three weeks. George is also working full-time as a boom man, directing an Eric Nicol play which is  in an advanced stage of rehearsal  and, from time to time, attending  to the demands of his three young  children. How do you do it,  George?  Allan J. Crane  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds al Campbell's  Family Shoes * Leather  Goods In down-town Sechell.  Widening  Editor:  Who wants Beach Avenue in  Roberts Creek widened? Nobody  we've talked to, and we've talked  to a lot of fellow Beach Avenue  property owners���young, old,  and middle-aged.  About fifty Roberts Creek residents signed a petition at the  Creek store in little over a day and  a half's time, saying they do not  want their famous old hedge and  tree-lined road widened and  straightened, as the Highways  Department wants to do.  The Roberts Creek Community  Association held a meeting on the  issue last Wednesday night, and  one person after another said that  the Highways project will destroy  the looks and nature of the winding waterfront roadway that  "makes" Roberts Creek.  Dozens of people reportedly also pointed out that a wider roadway and shoulders will enable the  "Speed Demons" to drive even  faster���encourage them, in fact.  This, on a roadway a lot of people walk along, bicycle along and  even horseride along, many of  them kids and seniors.  One Highways worker told me  the plan is for wide shoulders  (three feet on either side, plus  twenty-two feet of blacktop), a  total twenty-eight-foot roadway  width, as against the eighteen- to  twenty-foot width now. On top of  that, there will be a ditch on one  ��lMa��Maa*|.|.'.l'.la.li;j1 MtlM  ��Mm Una* |.ff.B.la.'.'Jll��*aaal>ia��^  I Radio /haek  authorized Sales Cenlre  Reg.  159.95  m Auto  Cassette Stereo  Cassette player and AM FM stereo radio Has deluie  features and a versatile design which makes custom-  mounting easy���in or under dash Control shahs spacing  adtusls Irom 5-5 8 lo 6-9 32 FM local drslance switch gels  ophmuir. reception ol shong stations LEO lape and stereo  ndicalors-conveniences you it appreciate 2-9 16��7-3 8 a  M 2" Complete wilh instruchons speaker cables and  mounting hardware  12-1836  side or other. There is a ditch  now, but judging by what Highways has just finished doing to  Flume Road and Park Avenue,  the new ditches will be much wider. Highways talks about "dangerous curves" but the curves are  only dangerous for drivers who  take them too fast; instead of ripping up Beach Avenue, government should police/enforce the  fifty-kilometre (thirty mph) speed  limit.  Highways Department manager Tucker Forsyth is aware of the  fifty-signature petition against  widening Beach Avenue, according to his secretary, and no doubt  he is very much aware of the official Roberts Creek Settlement  Plan in which the residents stress  they want their community kept  rural in looks and pace.  The Highways spokesman said  at Wednesday night's public  meeting they will "negotiate"  with individual property owners  who want to save trees on their  frontages from destruction. "Negotiate" presumably means, "If  it fits in with our project, we'll  leave your trees."  Highways, going by conversations with their people, apparently feel that the sixty-six foot road  right-of-way is their land. It is not  ���it is public land, and if the majority of the public living on and  using this local residential road  would rather see it lined with  greenery, trees and hedges, and  kept narrow also to restrain  speeders, then in a democracy,  their wishes should prevail.  But, at time of writing (Friday,  August 4), the Highways crew  have already started their steam-  shovel carnage on Beach Avenue,  opposite the picnic beach.

Craddock must  have dragged the very gutters  of Rupert for this character.  He's a scrawny, bald, terminally-dishevelled, hatchet-  faced man called Jim Christie  who's been on a nonstop  drunk for months. He gazes  disorientedly around and begs  thc way to the nearest bunk.  Unfortunately, the bunk he  chooses happens to be in the  same shack where I'm stay-  inj;. There he commences to  howl and moan his horrors  loose for the next four days.  It's a flatout nightmare not  only for him. He's worse than  a junkie kicking a kingsize  habit. It's like living in a bug-  ward. Wild rantings and protestations jolt us awake in the  small hours. Craddock runs  machine in the meantime.  "Good man," he says,"once  he gets the booze out of him."  That's all very well for him  to say. He's got his own  cabin. We have to suffer the  snakes along with Christie.  Common indignation forges a  brief rapport between us. Who  needs this dreadful madman?  He should be in a sanitarium.  We want to strangle the noisy  bastard. But on the fifth day,  his demons leave him. He  pulls on his gear like nothing  had happened and comes out  to the woods with us. By  God, Craddock's right! He's  a crackerjack engineer.  Things run a normal course  for a bit. There's even a spell  of dry sunny weather that in-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  tensifies the rotten stench  from the tide-flat but otherwise renders things a degree  more tolerable. Jim Christie  proves to be a sociable guy  with a wry, self-deprecating  wit. Once or twice, we get  talking. He tells me sometimes hilarious ��� sometimes  horrific stories of his drunken  escapades.  Then thc machine breaks  down. It'll take a couple of  days to get parts so the crew,  with thc exception of Christie,  Lee Ching, the catskinner and  his wife and myself, head into  Rupert to get beered-up. I've  no desire to drink with any of  that surly lot and Jean needs  someone to set chokers for  him behind the cat. Christie  has various monkeywrenching  chores to do.  It's the first chance I've had  to get acquainted with  Dupree. He and Mary keep  pretty much to themselves.  He's a small dark man with a  hook nose and a heavy accent,  somewhat excitable but much  better to work for than the  abusive Stockton. Setting the  feather-weight cat-chokers is  easy enough. We hit it off  well. "You come up to the  cabin tonight," he invites at  the end of the second day.  "Meet my old woman. She  likes to read too. Maybe she  got some books you haven't  seen."  That evening, feeling rather  privileged, I head up the  riverside  trail  to  their  tiny  DATSUN  COQUITMM CENTRE  DMSUNLTD.

They've never encouraged anyone to visit them before and considering the disagreeable nature of most of  the others, I certainly can't  blame them. The shack perches precariously on the  mossy creekbank. Jean, as  he's informed me not without  a certain pride, built it himself  when he first came to Craddock's Slough. He's obviously  a better catskinner than a  carpenter���the whole thing  looks oddly lopsided. But it  doesn't leak and Mary keeps  its single room neat as a pin.  Mary bears a marked  physical resemblence to Jean.  They could easily be brother  and sister. They're both dark,  small and nothing to write  home about for looks but  seem ideally suited to each  other. "Left a husband and  three kids to go with this crazy  pea-souper, "she informs me  with a frank chuckle. Jean  makes some fond rejoinder.  It's refreshing to be with contented people. They're like  Darby and Joan, happy with  themselves and their jerry-  built shanty in this shadowy,  dismal wilderness.  Jean produces a bottle of  whiskey. We proceed to get  comfortably drunk. I ask  them where their dog is.  "What dog?" they exclaim  puzzledly. "You don't have a  dog?" On several occasions,  I've seen what appeared to be  a large grey hound prowling  through the brush. Since  there are no animals around  the camp apart from an unfriendly and flea-ridden cookhouse cat, I've always as-'  sumed it belonged to  Jean.  Understanding comes over  the French Canadian's  swarthy face. "Must be a  wolf you see," he informs me.  "Oh yeah," I say with some  embarrassment at my ignorance and a twinge of appre  hension. A wolf! I keep forgetting how far north and  deep in the boondocks we  actually are.  Soon the three of us are  feeling no pain from the  liquor. Jean begins to talk  about Craddock. "That man  is so tight he squeak. Everything in this camp is secondhand. He buy all his equipment at the auction. Best  you keep your eyes open  around those lines."  "Ah, I'm safe enough  blowing whistles," I say  nonchalantly.  We leave the subject of  Craddock's skinflintedness  and move on to more pleasant  topics. Finally, the whiskey is  gone and it's time to leave.  Mary presents me with a box  of pocket-books she's finished  reading. It's a much better  selection than the trash that's  lying around the bunkhouse���  The Grapes of Wrath. I feel  like a man who's just struck  gold and thank her profusely.  Then I take my leave and proceed nervously down the  pitch-black trail with my books  and a borrowed flashlight.  Jean has assured me that  wolves never attack human  beings unless they're starving  but I figure there's always  a first time. I end up scaring  the hell out of myself and  running drunkenly back to  camp through that suddenly  sinister forest like a panicky  kid.  Next day, the rest of the  crew returns, grumbling and  hungover. The brief holiday  hasn't sweetened their dispositions a damn bit. The  replacement-parts are installed and the donkey coaxed  back to life. We start yarding  and I'm obliged to resume  my lowly whistle-punk's  > role. It'd be a soft touch  except for Stockton's big  mouth and the bad weather.  For the rains have returned  with a vengeance.  I bury myself in books and  contrive to shut it all out.

House  Calls is the name of the film  which will play Wednesday  through Saturday, August  9-12, and it features three  Academy Award winners in  Glenda Jackson, Walter Matthau, and Art Carney. Sunday  through Tuesday, August  13-15, the film is Julia starring  acting notable Jane Fonda and  Vanessa Redgrave with support from such as Jason Ro-  bards and Hal Holbrook.  In House Calls, the medical  profession gets a jaundiced  appraisal. This engaging comedy is consistently amusing  Jean and Mary in their  friendly cabin. The others are  suspicious: "Jesus, the punk  must have something going  with Dupree's woman. "I  ignore them. I'm not quite  bushed enough yet to look  on Mary as a sex-object but  they don't know that. Let  them think what they want.  The following boat-day,  Carver makes the run alone.  He and Craddock work on the  boom between supply-junkets.  I'm looking forward to Les's  return as I'm expecting a  letter or two from the outside  world. But next evening rolls  around with no trace of boat or  boatman. He doesn't show up  the next day either. Craddock  begins to fume and curl  around the edges. He gets on  the radio-phone to .Rupert.  Carver apparently picked up  the groceries and left on  schedule, the previous morning. Craddock reports the  missing vessel. Maybe  Carver's broken down someplace. It's a goddamn  mystery.  and often quite funny. Walter  Matthau portrays a skilled  surgeon who becomes an instant middle-aged Romeo following his wife's death while  opposite him is Glenda Jackson who shines as a divorcee  who's looking for more than a  one-shot relationship. Art  Carney scores solidly as the  possible senile yet ultimately  devious chief surgeon.  Noted American playwright  Lillian Hellman's book  Penllmcnto was the source of  Alvin Sargeant's screenplay  forJulla. The Julia of the title  is portrayed in the film by  Vanessa Redgrave. She was  playwright Hellman's best  friend and one for whom the  author faced personal danger  in the days before the Second  World War. Jane Fonda portrays Lillian Hellman and is  seen as a courier bringing  money into Berlin to aid the  escape of political and religious refugees from Nazi  Germany just prior to the outbreak of the war. Her friend  Julia is part of the anti-fascist  underground in Germany.  Both of the film's stars give  performances which have  drawn much praise from the  critics and in addition Julia  qualifies as that rare production which relies for love for a  friend rather than sexual love  as its story basis. Jason Ro-  bards is excellent as Dashiell  Hammett and the Panavision-  DeLuxe colour film has an  air of Thirties elegance. It was  filmed in France and Enland.  Week Commencing: August 7.  General Notes: A very helpful  Moon-Venus-Mars conjunction in  Libra promises a week of optimism and good feelings. Now's the  time to solve long-term disputes  by negotiating fairly and diplomatically with the opposition.  Babies born this week will be  very idealistic. Their minds will  be shrewd and analytical. They  will show a flare for diplomacy  and enjoy settling other people's  differences. Many will eventually  organize and manage ambitious  ventures.  Brave lovers exchanging marriage vows at this time will be  glad they did.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Relationsips, partnerships,  marriages, agreements with  loved ones and close associates  now develop more favourably.  Idealistic romances get green  light. Sign that contract. Meet  people. Ask favours.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Employment and health matters improve. You're more popular on the work scene as negotiations with co-workers begin to  produce results. Medical enquiries bring much needed reassurances.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Social life, romance, love affairs, risks and speculation bring  contentment. It's time to go out  and have fun. Children's activities enhance personal pleasures  and amusements. Fresh, creative  energy motivates artists or crafts-  persons.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Accent is on domestic bliss.  Happiness is simply being at  home with those you love. Now's  the time to remodel, redecorate,  or beautify your living space. Real  estate deals arc worthwhile. Discussions and arrangements are  reassuring.  LEO (July 23-August 22)  Correspondence, phone calls  and messages are sources of  inner satisfaction. Short journeys  or local visits initiate pleasant involvements and lasting friendships. Disputes involving brothers, sisters, or neighbours can  now be settled amicably.  VIRGO (August 23-Sept. 22)  Focus is on money and possessions. Be aware of urge to overspend on expensive items or articles of beauty. Follow up opportunities to increase financial flow.  Remember that popularity is seldom bought.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  Moon, Venus. Mars, and Pluto  in your sign bestow charm, popularity, sex-appeal, and extra energy. Others find you irresistible.  It's your turn to splurge on new  clothes, adornments, and hairstyles. Vibrant personality gets  you what you've dreamed about.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  Happiness is found in seclusion,  behind thc scenes, sharing secrets with friends or lovers. It's a  favourable time to start private  ventures, investigations, or enquiries. Clandestine love affairs  or elopements figure strongly.  Show sympathy to those trapped  or in confinement.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)  Involvement with friends, acquaintances, group projects, or  community affairs arc sources of  rewards and contentment. Long-  range plans, hopes, and wishes  now appear within your reach.  Dealings with strangers will produce results.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jsn. 19)  Reputation, public standing,  and career plans receive much  needed boost to diplomatic discussions and determination to  succeed. Authority figures find  you extra convincing, so push  recent achievements with more  confidence.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Good feelings arc linked to  long-distance communications  and affairs far away. It's a favourable time to take extended  trips or journeys to foreign lands.  Those planning higher education  courses or skills-improvement  programs should send necessary  paperwork now.  PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Other people's money or possessions are the sources of favourable conditions. Now's the  time to beg, borrow, or ask for the  return of long-overdue loans and  equipment. Insurance or joint-  finance matters yield dividends.

Coast News, August 8,1978  An old-timer visits the Sunshine Coast  docked at Langdale until September.  The Sunshine Coast Queen will  Book Review  A master's masterpiece  by John Moore  As you might expect from  his name, Mikhail Bulgakov is  a Russian writer. I could say  "was", since he entered the  past tense in 1940, but it's  considered polite to speak of  wTiters as though they were as  long-lived as their works.  (That's immortality for you.)  Anyway, you might have  guessed that he is a Russian,  but he is certainly not as well-  known to Westerners as a lot  of Russian authors. Even in  his own country his reputation  rests not on the monumental  and often tortuous novels Russia seems to inspire her writers to produce, but rather on  his lengthy career in the  theatre.  I first heard of Bulgakov at a  party where a friend of mine  dragged me aside and began  telling me about this fantastic-  novel he was reading whose  characters included two lovers, members of Massolit, thc  Soviet Union's official literary  guild, Pontius Pilate, Jesus  Christ, the Devil, and a black  cat the size of a pig who  walked on its hind legs,  drank vodka, smoked cigars,  and was a crack shot with a  Mauser automatic. It all  sounded so bizzare that I dismissed the whole conversation  as incipient delerium tremens  and forgot about it until thc  next time we met, under more  sober circumstances, and he  dropped the book into my lap.  I looked at the title: The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail  Bulgakov. "Never heard of it  or him," I said skeptically.  I had a lot of reading to do for  university courses and very little spare time. "I'm lending it  explains that he has missed  thc point: it is not Christ's  divinity which should have  been the target of attack, but  rather His very existence. At  this moment they are joined  by an eccentric professor who  intrudes on their conversation, which he finds vastly  amusing, and who proceeds to  shatter their materialist complacency with demonstrations  of uncanny powers. He predicts the editor's death by decapitation at the hands of a  girl, a remote likelihood, it  seems, and holds both men  spellbound with a tale of  Christ's interview with Pilate,  which he verified simply by  saying, "I was there." The  professor, of course, is the  Devil himself and his appearance sets off a chain of unsettling and, to the reader, hilarious events in the Soviet capital where supernatural beings  and happenings are not officially recognized. Escaping  from the mysterious stranger,  the editor is duly beheaded  when he falls under a tram  driven by a young woman.  The eminent poet, who tries  to pursue the professor, appears after a supernatural  chase across Moscow, at the  posh restaurant-headquarters  of Massolit, carrying a candle  and clad only in long-Johns,  and a peasant shirt with a  paper ikon pinned to the front.  Following a brief riot, precipitated by his insistence that the  Devil is on the premises, he  is subdued and removed to an  insane asylum. By the time  the professor and his entourage are through with Moscow,  the poet has plenty of company, the police have thrown  up their hands in despair, and  the supernatural antics have  brought out the worst in just  Caught up  in the madness are The Mas  ter, a philosopher who has devoted himself to writing a rein-  terpretation of the crucifixion  of Christ, and Margarita,  whose illicit love affair with  The Master ultimately ends in  tragedy for them both and for  the precious book. Yet at the  end, the Devil's triumph is  hollow and he bows to The  Master's spiritual power and  to Margarita's selfless love.  The style of the writing  varies appropriately, from the  bizarre comedy of the Devil  wreaking havoc on the Russian capitol, to the love story  of The Master and Margarita,  and the fascinating excerpts  from The Master's book which  form a part of the novel, but  throughout Bulgakov's prose  is a vindication of the last ten  years of his life, which hc  spent working on The Master  and Margarita, and of his long  apprenticeship as a journalist  and playwright. His writing  has been described as "fantastic realism", a term applied  to a number of other modern  writiers, Franz Kafka most notably, to describe their talent  for relating bizarre events  with a deadpan, journalistic  delivery.  Fantastic realism has enjoyed popularity among Soviet  writers chiefly as a method of  satirical protest against a  government not noted for its  appreciation of criticism. Obviously there is powerful satire  in The Master and Margarita.  The  Moscow literary estab  lishment, an appalling bureaucracy of snobs and sycophants, takes a savage pounding, as do the civil authorities.  Despite his long and successful career in the theatre. Bulgakov was perpetually in hot  water because his writings offended the political sensibilities of the censors, lt is  perhaps interesting to note  that The Master and Margarita has been published in Russia, almost thirty years after  the death of the author, What  is even more interesting is  that thc magazines in which  the installments of the novel  appeared were sold out so  quickly that public readings  had to bc held in response  to popular demand. The navel  is available hi this country  in hardback (Collins & Harvill  Press) and in several paperback editions, the best by Penguin Classics with the usual  excellent introduction.  One of Bulgakov's early  works. The Hear of a Dog, is  also available in a good paperback from Harcourt, Brace &  World. Written in 1925. it  is a political "beast-fable",  not unlike Orwell's Animal  Farm, and though it is every  bit as polished as his later  work, it is narrower in scope.  A brilliant doctor adopts a  stray dog from thc Moscow  gutters and by ingenious  methods transforms it into  a human being. The allegory  is obvious and scathing; thc  Russian proletariat, after centuries of having been treated,  literally, as dogs, are transformed by a radical experiment into responsible human  beings. The dog. taking the  name Poligraph Poligrapho-  vich, soon becomes a petty  bureaucrat in the Moscow  Sanitation Department, Commissar in charge of the elimination of vagrant quadrupeds  (cats). He comes to exemplify  the worst aspects of an ignorant, insensitive proletariat; he  is boorish, tyrannically cruel,  and totally self-interested.  In  Come cry  with me  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  1 cannot afford to travel. All  my friends are taking these  exotic trips, and 1 feel so envious when they come back with  their tales and coloured slides.  Am I being a poor friend? I  feel guilty but left out.  Deprived  Dear Deprived:  This time of year we are in  the most beautiful of spots.  The beach is lovely, and thc  water warm. Our trips on thc  ferry have Disneyland put to  shame. The wildlife is great.  Many of my friends see bears  and deer; I see racoons  and eagles and feel priveleged  to do so. This week I found a  little green frog living in a  large yellow Dahlia in the  greenhouse. Every time 1  water, I look for him, and  feel such great pleasure at this  small, dazzling world. Proust  and Thoreau wrote of the  adventures in their small  worlds around them. There is  ever a delightful surprise in  every day, if you are aware.  Gct a microscope and look at  stagnant water to see one-  celled animals on a slide, or  the end, the doctor, (modelled  supposedly on Lenin) forcibly  returns him to his canine  state. Though much of it is as  humorous as anything in The  Master and Margarita, this  early exercise in wish-fulfillment has. understandably,  failed to appear on bookshelves in the Soviet Union.  Bulgakov died an embittered  man, whose finest work was  unprintable in his own country. Luckily for us, he's now  as available as the nearest  bookstore.  a magnifying glass and watch  butterflies and growing  things. There are small trips,  and lovely colour slides right  here. The smell of nasturtiums, the taste of blackberries, so many experiences on a  lovely summer day. Go barefoot in the grass and dream a  trip. May everyone envy  your colour slides.  Dear Ann:  I am one of the many who  want to lose weight. Do you  have any hints? I've tried  many diets but they don't  work, or I gain it back. I hate  how I look hanging out of a  bathing suit. What to do?  The Blimp  Dear Blimp:  Join the crowd. Overweight  is one of the foremost problems of the North Americans.  Whatever you do, do it slowly.  Exercise; brisk walking is  safe, half an hour in the morning. Eat three tablespoons of  bran and wheat germ with  your yogurt every morning.  Cut out sugar. Try cutting all  portions of food in half. Then  you won't feel deprived, but  not loaded up.  Dear Ann:  I met this attractive lady  and her husband. They were  very friendly, the wife particularly. Being a hungry bachelor. I lapped up thc attention.  She invited me over to dinner  and an evening. I supposed  from her amorous insinuations  that her husband would be out  of town or at least away, but  no, he was right there and  wanted to share the fun. So  we had a threesome. What do  you think of that?       Amused  Dear Amused:  I've always heard that  three's a crowd, but what do I  know?

Joe Citizen and the RCMP are as much lo blame as the  hot-rodders and all those cars from Alberta.  Pratt Road is probably the most violated stretch of pavement on the Coast, with a rough estimate of three in every  four vehicles exceeding thc speed limit by up to ninety  kilometers per hour. Considering the number of children  on horseback or children just being themselves. I think il's  criminal that nothing is done about il.  There arc a few of us who take license numbers and lime  of infraction and let the police know. Bul somehow Ihat  seems futile. Speed bumps could bc installed, but that  would slow emergency vehicles. The best solution would  be to dead-end Pratt Road, three quarters of a mile down  from thc 101. Then those of us with an interest in children  and livestock could be assured of safety on our road.  Some of you may have had a bright light go on in there,  and thought, "What about radar?"

With the boys away,  I was very lonely. My two older sons, Peter and Chris Trower, were still in Vancouver,  where they had been boarding  while I was confined. My  baby was still in hospital,  where he was being kept for a  month because 1 was too weak  to look after the family at first.  The house appalled me.  Tryg had promised to have it  painted for my return. And  painted il was. But what a  sight! It was unbelievable!  The floors were yellow ochre,  of all colours! They had been  varnished before that. "Why  the paint?" I asked, and was  told that the mill had had it  left over. (Left over from  what? 1 could not imagine.)  Thc kitchen was worse, if  anything. The walls, ceiling,  and cupboards were painted a  garish green! Thc floor was  battleship grey. The bedrooms if 1 remember right,  were a drab, rather dark  cream. It must be repainted, I  felt.  "THE TIDES"  Lower Gibsons   886-9219  Fast Food Take-Out  Fish & Chips  1 decided to start on the  bedrooms so the boys would  have them fresh to come back  to. But I made a mistake to  try; 1 wasn't up to it, and  botched it on my first attempt.  When Tryg returned from  work, 1 was forbidden to continue with it, of course.  "What is the use of my getting a Chinaman in to make  the supper for you, and you  do this?"  This is where the painter's  story begins. The next day  he arrived. He showed me  how it should be done: "You  musl work in Ihe paint," and  so forth, he said. As well as a  free lesson in house decorating, he gave me his life story.  He was a rather gaunt, emaciated little man. who hardly  ever smiled. This was not to  be wondered at after hearing  his tale. His wife on thc other  hand was obese. One got the  impression thai hc was rather  henpecked. He seldom spoke  of her. Il was of his first wife  and his early life and childhood that he told me, in a  somewhat Dickensian style.  His family had been very poor,  he said. At an early age he  had been taught to steal, as  who would suspect so small a  child, with such big, innocent  eyes? Hc never got caught  then.  When he was still very  young, hc acquired a job with  a very kind lady. He was  observed one day looking in at  her window where there was a  tree and children playing with  their gifts. (It was Christmas  time.) To his embarassment,  he was invited in, and from  that day on, this kind lady  hired him to help her on occasion, and would sometimes let  him stay the night. What luxury it was for him to sleep between clean sheets instead of  grubby blankets. The lady introduced him to the vicar of  the parish, who was good to  him, too. He gave him nice  new clothes and put him in the  choir.  He thought hc had forgotten  how to steal with all this kindness and new-found friends  and the honestly earned  money he was able to take  home. But one day he had a  relapse, and this time he got  caught, although he was forgiven, and thc incident never  happened again. He could  inner forget it, however, lt  occurred at a church fete and  thc vicar caught him stealing  some icecream.  Years later, the tables were  reversed. This time it was he  who was wronged. His first  wife, who was a religious fanatic, stole thousands of dollars  from him before it was discovered. What could he say?  Alter all, hc had been a thief  too. So he forgave her. "But  why did you do it? All you had  to do was ask." Her reply was  that it was for her brother for  his church work.  She thought  he would understand. A few  days later he found her. She  had hanged herself in the  closet.  The time soon passed, after  Peter and Chris returned, and  it did not seem long before I  was happily reunited with my  son Martin, who was a healthy  and lively child, and a delight  to his father.  As to the painter, I never  did sec him again, though I  was ' ful to him for  ittij ..g the decor of the  house. The kitchen especially  was more liveable, in white  with red trim.. But until we  moved to thc new house the  company had built for us, I  was still stuck with those  dreadful yellow floors! And  the haunting memory of the  painter's story.  886-9737  The Home of People Prices  music Weavers'  For a laid-back atmosphere,  drop down to the Wharf on Saturday night.

Robert J. Campbell  It shouldn't be touched.  The road is rural and should  remain so. We should preserve the unique character  of the area. If the work is  done it will become a  speedway. New highways  encourage traffic. 11 money  is available why don'i they  build a biking (rail.  W       Ui  Gloria Lindsay  1 have no objections.  They're only widening it by  three feet which is thc road  allowance anyway. What  they need to do is to pave it.  Fitness: What it does  for your body  it does for your mind.  Cathy Anderson  1 like it the way it is. If  (hey want to spend some  money on it they could fill  in a few potholes.  Through a  Half moon Bay F.D.  glass darkly  Of what value is a poet? Not  much, most people would reply.  Even the least sophisticated  may enjoy looking at a fine  painting or listening to music  or going to a show. So artists,  musicians, and actors ��� however far outside the mainstream of business and industry ��� are seen to have some  value.  But poets? They don't  give you facts, like a newspaper story. They waste paper ��� they don't fill each page  with words, like a novel.  They're not highly productive,  sometimes labouring for days  on a single phrase. And above  all, they're hard to read ���  they bend and twist words,  forcing you to struggle with  meanings and images and  sounds....  Yet what poets do is to provide new lenses, for seeing  hidden truths. And lenses  cannot be rushed through or  roughed out. They must be  painstakingly shaped, finely  polished, before you can see  through them. It is thc same  with poetry.  To try to see the value of a  poet, consider the situation in  the Republic of South Korea.  You could spend your days  accumulating facts and information about its repression, or  its economic progress. You  can balance intellectual arguments for and against its military dictatorship.  But when you read the poetry of Kim Chi Ha, Korea's imprisoned poet, you find these  shells of partial  truth  have  peeled away, leaving man's  injustice to man exposed like a  throbbing heart.  Of torture  and brutality, Kim wrote:  speak,speak,  with torn body,  every wound  as an open lip  as an open tongue.  Poet Kim never murdered,  raped, robbed, or cheated  anyone. But the lenses of his  poems reveal too much truth.  South Korean President Park  Chung Hee has shut him away  for life. He spent nineteen  months in solitary confinement with a single bare bulb  burning night and day in his  cell.  Poets like Kim Chi Ha don't  just tell us things that are  true. Instead they let us discover truth for ourselves.  That's why societies need  poets. For a people without  poets is a blind people, stumbling towards social suicide.  |The foregoing is from The  Office of Church in Society,  the United Church of Canada.

Equu8^||i Cavalcade  bvTrish Cramer, B.H.A.I.  and Debbie Rhodes  When we first purchase  a horse, it is generally for a  pet. No thought is ever given  to showing it. Because of this,  if we do decide to try our hand  at showing, we seldom have  any idea of what will be  required of us or our horse.  The first thing we would  advise is to attend some local  shows and really get involved  in thc running of one or two.  This will give you inside  information on how the judging and running of a show  really works. You will not  need to know anything and  your help will not, 1 assure  you, bc turned down.  While in attendance, take  a good look at the winning  horses and riders of the event  you wish to compete in. If  you want to compete you first  must prepare. Your horse, if  a pet, will generally be greatly  helped if you also first prepare  him for what you have in  mind. A few riding lessons  with a good instructor will  soon tell you if you are ready,  and more importantly if your  horse is ready to compete.  Ask lots of questions.  Horse people never tire of  discussing or showing if you  are really sincere in your interest. Try to choose someone  who is either a top competitor or a trainer as this will  insure you will be advised  correctly.  Once you have decided to  show and what events you  are interested in, try a small  local show first, with the idea  in mind of training more than  Golf - '78  LADIES':  tow Gross 36 Holes ��� Virginia Douglas, 154 ��� TRAIL BAY  SPORTS UNLIMITED TROPHY.

Coast Strokers  BY DENNIS GRAY   '  Bob is a young motorcycle  enthusiast. In fact motorcycles have him in a state of  euphoria, a high that many  try to achieve with alcohol or  drugs. He loves motorcycles  so much he has spent most of  his summer in the shop just  to be around bikes. Bob is  fifteen, tall, slim, and pale  (you don't get much sun in a  motorcycle shop). He bears a  striking resemblance to Bob  Hannah (current moto-cross  star), his idol and the man he  tries to emulate. In fact  "Bob" is the name he gave  himself���"Just call me Bob  Hannah". The boys have  complied to the point they call  him Bob Banana. Bob calls  my son 'Dad' and they get  along just fine.  But last Sunday morning  Bob was pumped, this is a  condition where every rational  signal from the brain is  blocked by the one to the  throttle hand. It was the occasion of the Coast Cycle Sea-  fare Enduro and Bob was  running into people before  the event even began. The  course was a three mile wooded circuit which Bob had helped to build. But his excitement had erased any memory  of it and he followed as  many wrong trails as right.  The riders were sent off  in groups of three. Bob was  in thc first group to disappear  into thc trees, engine screaming high enough to shatter  glass. Wc could watch his  progress by following the line  of shaking trees and when hc  emerged onto a gravel road  his throttle was still wide  open. The bike, unable to  get traction, began to spin  in a circle, around they went,  dust began to rise like the  birth of a tornado but Bob  would neither relax the throttle or fall over. Just when it  looked as though he was  going to screw his way into  the ground he somehow broke  loose and went bounding  off down the road still wide  open. If the Bike survived  long enough to run out of gas,  Bob was pumping enough  adrenalin to fuel both of them.  On their return it was my  job to stop them before they  went screaming across the  highway. This was something  like flagging down an enraged  bull with a red flag and with  these bezerkos bearing  dawn on me at sixty miles per  hour, discretion seemed like  the nearest tree, particularly  when Bob's helmet fell  off and bounded down the  road ahead of him like a  great yellow cannonball.  Somehow Bob always got  stopped without using me as  a bumper.  Getting started again seemed to give him more of a  problem as he crouched  low over the bars, wicked the  bike up to about twelve  grand, dumped the clutch and  just sat there. In a frustrated  effort to get moving he  began pedalling the bike along  with his feet before I could  suggest he put it in gear.  I do not mean to ridicule  Bob.

LOOK FOR OUR BIG  BACK-TO-SCHOOL SALE  STARTING SOON.  SUNNYCREST SHOPPING CENTRE,  Gibsons, B. C.   VON IVO  Phona: 6*6 - 7213  Wildlife  corner  By Ian Corrance  A few minutes down by thc  head of Porpoise Bay watching  idly and letting your eyes relax  until you see life that the  casual observer would miss, is  to me as good a tonic as an  hour spent with a psychiatrist  or any other sedative.  Friday is always a busy day  for me in Sechelt, and around  lunch time I can usually bc  found around thc head of the  Inlet with my mind on holiday.  Last Friday, however, I  thought that I was going to  put Sechelt on the map. My  mind was full of stories about  the spoonbill sandpiper, spotted on thc Lower Mainland,  when in flew about half a  dozen kildeers with this unusual bird in tow. Aha! thought  my romantic eye, always looking for the rare.  All 1 had with me was an 85-  205 zoom lens which brought  the bird a bit closer, but not  close enough for positive identification. I ran off about  forty-odd shots and figured  that if I blew it up as big as I  could on the enlarger, then a  few more times on the copy  TIME AT  $1.00 OFF  all albums  & tapes  15 /O OFF all    Shopping Centre,  home stereo units  10% OFF all car units  886-9111    laiiiip!  camera, I might be able, if  lucky, to tell what it was.  Right beside where I was  madly running off film, is  Peter Gordon's survey office.  The chances were pretty good  that he would have a pair of  binoculars, so pushing aside  the chair he had the door  jammed with. 1 interrupted  him on the telephone, apologised and went back out to  watch the strange visitor���the  bird, not me.  About five minutes later,  Peter joined me. He had  taken his binoculars home thc  night before, so we had to be  satisfied with my lens and  conjecture.  The conversation drifted  round to optics, which brought  up his theoloditc. A theolo-  dite! The perfect thing for  bird-watching. Into his office,  and in a few minutes hc was  set up. It was great���you  could sec thc reflection in the  bird's eye. Even with this  help it look us a while to identify the bird. It turned out  to bc a long-billed dowitchcr,  darn it, and not thc spoon-  billed sandpiper that my overactive imagination had hoped  for.  Even though it wasn't a  rare bird as I had hoped, it  was the first time I had had a  Dositive identification of this  one. Wc would never have  been able to identity it without  the help of the theolodite. As  the bird was half way between  its summer and winter plumage, and all the colours were  mixed up, including the legs, 1  thought that I might buy one  of these great instruments  when I grow up, until Peter  told me the price of it.  Catnappcr  For the past three weeks  I've found myself looking after  two pregnant cats and a  shedding dog, along with my  own assortment of tropical  fish. Normally this would be  easy, chuck in some fish food,  pat the dog, and let the cats  have babies. But the cats  decided that normal motherhood was not for them and  went about it in their own way.  Both cats looked like they  would present me with around  forty-eight little pattering feet  at the same time, and at the  beginning of last week the ar  rival seemed imminent.  One of the cats is a black  bob-tailed, while the other is a  young striped thing. Both arc  strays which demanded room  and board.  The bobtail is the boss so I  wondered how they would  relate to each other during  motherhood. I needn't have  worried. Nature has a way  of looking after cats >"hich arc  being looked after by unpre-  dicatable humans. I got up  one morning and traced a  high-pitched peeping sound to  a squirming ball of kittens  underneath the front steps,  guarded over the proud  bobtailed mother.  Just in case it rained, I  brought the kittens on to thc  porch and made them a little  home away from home. I  checked on them that evening,  and must admit that I was a  bit surprised to find thc wrong  cat in with thc brood. Even an  explanation of the facts of  life couldn't convince the cat  that it was doing everything  backwards, and would soon bc  in for a shock. The bobtail  which under normal circumstances was thc mistress of  the house, stood by and didn't  seem to take much interest in  my theories about feline  motherhood, so I decided to  let them sort it out themselves. It was only when the  striped eat started stealing thc  kittens that I stepped in and  demanded an explanation.  The game of her stealing  the kittens and my trying to  catch her at it went on for a  couple of days. I was worried  that when she had her own  they would bc too small to  rival the older ones in the fight  for milk. During this time the  bobtail would occasionally  take over her motherly duties,  so again I let them go to it.  The end result, apart from  my being baffled, is that the  striped cat no longer looks  pregnant; I can't find any  other kittens around, and both  of them arc playing mother.  I've no idea if this is a normal  state of things or not, but I  can tell you one thing, the  kittens are not complaining.  Fish Farming  Another attempt is being  made to start fish farming on  the Coast. This latest attempt  has so far been looked upon  favourably by thc official  channels it has gone to.  It's a Vancouver Island man  John Slind who is going to  give it a try. The spot he s  picked is just above Tuwanek  Point in the Sechelt Inlet.  The difference between this  one and others is that the fish  will not be allowed to run to  the open sea, but will be  penned. This is one of the  reasons that officials are looking more favourably on the  project. What this means is  that thc usual losses to Japanese deep-sea gillnets will be  avoided.  The fish will be kept in the  fresh water pens for aboul a  year, after which time they  will weigh between a pound  and a pound and a half. They  will be utilized mainly for the  restaurant and airline trade.  If it is possible, Slind wants  to begin this year. He'll start  with springs and eoho���he's  figuring on aboul fifty thousand coho and twenty-five  thousand springs. Once he  has this established, he plans  to try thc trout market.  If this gets Marled and is  profitable, then il would be  a perfect industry lor this  coast.  Fishing  This is a greal war for fishing; just aboul every place has  been hot al one time or  another in the past couple of  weeks. Coho are running  right now. In some areas the  average is between four and  five pounds; in others they're  hitting a seven-to eight-pound  average, which is well worth  getting up early for. At Davis  Bay wharf there've been a  couple of thirty-one pounders  caught right off the dock and  lots of smaller ones. This is  good to hear, even if my own  two attempts have been less  successful. The first time  that I was going fishing was  the Wednesday before last. It  rained, and that, combined  with the beer strike, was  enough to keep me al home  with a book. My second  attempt I did actually get a  line in thc water, but it was  the wrong part of thc ocean,  I guess���cither that, or all  the fish were fed up.

Coast News, August 8,1978  Roberts  Creek  Continued from Page Ten  was in the Seaview Market for  only two days, but it was  signed by over fifty taxpayers,  including many residents  of Beach Avenue.  In other business at the  Community Association meeting, the Association expressed  itself as unanimously opposed  to the proposed developments  on Mr. Ron James's property  on Flume Road. About fifty  people attended the meeting,  and most of them were entirely opposed ot any mobile home  park or strata land developments in Roberts Creek although some felt that any applications should be judged on  their individual merits or lack  thereof. The meeting, which  had commenced at 8:00 p.m.  was adjourned at 10:10 p.m.  Coast Strokers  ' local crafts  Continued bom Page One  often seen in racing. I may  have been pumped a few  times myself. At best it is  a feeling of invincibility  where all obstacles dissolve.  In this condition a man could  enter a butting contest with a  bull moose and probably win.  At worst it just causes confusion.  Sometimes people get so  excited after a spill they go  the wrong way, or pick up tne  wrong bike, or put their helmet on backwards, or frantically begin pushing a dead  bikejintil jhey__drop Jn tears  ;,, Guess Where  The usual prize of $5.00 will go to the firsl  winning entry drawn from the barrel.

These people often  get in spectacular accidents  but seldom get hurt. Often  they survive to get a handle  on this aggression and become  excellent racers. Well, Bob  didn't win that race, he came  in second, but then with  all his wrong turns and going  in circles he probably went  twice as far as anyone else.  Perhaps one day he will become another Bob Hannah,  but till then to his friends  he is still Bob Banana.
