Array gBgg^SE^ Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  IVO/iMw i ��r 15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Volume 31, Number 8  February 21,1978.  John Daly - a fine man passes  by  Pender Harbour &  District Ratepayers' Association Publicity Committee.  Thc list of Ratepayers topics has just as many urgent items  on it this week as ever, but beside news of the death of longtime Fender Harbour resident John Daly in The Pas. Manitoba, they seem hard to think about.  It is a shame to honour someone as original as he was with a  cliche, but in John Daly's case the truth is unavoidable: Pender  Harbour will never be quite the same again.  He was a landmark, and not only because he had been around  as long as most of us could remember thundering away at every  public meeting that came up in a tireless campaign to make thc  rest of us feel thc same urgency about the issues of the day as  he did.  John Daly's interest in public affairs of all sizes and shapes  was a much remarked upon phenomenon, but the most remarkable thing about it was his optimism which years of disappointment only served to make stronger. His anger at those he  perceived to be destroying the planet and misleading humanity  never lessened and his hope of defeating them never failed.  He was always tantalized by the thought that if people would  only become more concerned and better informed, most prom-  lems would end right there. His favourite saying was, "It's  not the politician's fault - it's your fault for sitting around on  your bums and letting them getaway with it!"  We owe it to him never to forget that.  John was respected among fishermen as one of the steadiest  trailers in the fleet, always one of the first boats out of the  harbour in the spring in spite of advancing years and one serious heart attack. But determined as was his pursuit of the  salmon in the summer, his winters were no less hectic in thc  service of Ihe causes he believed in. Hc was one of the early  stalwarts in the Prince Rupert Fishermen's Co-Op and in later  years a hard-working executive member of United Fishermen  and Allied Workers Union, It is hard to think of an issue  from the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir Power Line protest to the far  flung concerns of Greenpeace that hc was not involved in.  In recent years it seemed his pace was accelerating rather  than slackening and this worried friends who remembered  his heart problem, but the work he was doing was so good  and thc satisfaction hc took from it was so great it was hard  to say anything against it.  Indeed il seemed that in the last three or lour years John  Daly was making more headway in his activities than ever before, and Has growing personally in his role of thc public  conscience. His speaking style had become forceful and direct.  When hc addressed the meeting protesting thc proposed  uranium mine al Clearwater he stole the show, and at thc recent  B.C. Hydro meeting on Lasqueli Island he did lhc same thing.  As a member of the McGregor Diversion Project Action Committee he played an important role in having that environmental  disaster sidelined which must have been a source of major  satisfaction to him.  He had always been an indefatigable writer of letters to  newspapers but in recent years, both because his name was  becoming better known and because his letters were so excellent, his opinions were being given feature treatment on  editorial pages. Television cameras were increasingly pointed  his way. Journalists were making reference to him as a personality of note and it seemed a very unique kind of recognition  was just around the corner for John. It would have been unique  in that it would not have come to him as a result of any official  position hc held but as a lone citizen whose most singular  asset was a great social conscience.  And yet there is something wrong in speaking of John Daly  only in these terms, because it is clear that among the many  people who knew him those who disagreed with his beliefs  will he just as shocked by news of is death as those who shared  those beliefs.  What we will all remember him for is his strength of character, his courage to speak not only whatever was on his mind,  but lo live his whole life as he wanted and not the way others  thought he should. Hc worshipped the independent spirit where  it appeared in others and he cultivated it in himself in such a  way lhal one wonders if our culture is still capable of producing  such powerful individualism.  Wc are reminded thai in spite of the deeds a man does and  Ihe words thai are spoken of him, the true test of how he has  lived is what others feel when they hear he has gone. By that  test, John Daly's way was the right way.  On behalf of the community we extend deepest sympathy  to Edith. Pixie. Dick and Scan.  Gibsons Chamber hears  of progress and problems  A meeting of the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  held on Wednesday, February  15th. heard President .lou Mc-  Rac report on the situation vis  a vis future developments in  thc Gibsons area. They were  told that lhc proposed L.VK  Sawmill in thc Twin Creeks  area is not to replace thc existing  L&K Mill in North Vancouver bul  to supplement il. It the mill  goes ahead it will hire all local  people. The fust step in thc  project would be the creek diversion work which would protect  the salmon stream. Work on  Ihis can gct underway this week.  Another development was  thc Travelodge proposed for the  junction of North Road and  Highway 101. McRac reported  thai Ihis development was also  looking optimistic.  Another new feature this year  will be thc location of thc Tourist Booth which is planned for  thc Ferry Terminal at Langdale  so that maximum benefit can  be obtained from il for thc  Gibsons area. Also in connection  with  Ihe  tourist  trade,   il   was  learned that in conjunction with  thc provincial government's  tourist program a hospitality  course would be available in this  area al the end of March if  twenty people wish to take it.  The course would be a two-day  course which is felt would be  suitable for storcclerks and  waitresses.  Ihe Chamber of Commerce  also heard thc suggestion that  lhc name of the Langdale Ferry  Terminal be at least modified  to include Sunshine Coast Ferry  Terminal at thc Horseshoe Bay  end fen the information of tourists who quite possibly don't  know where Langdale is.  Sonic considerable discussion  was furthcoming also about lhc  need of Chamber support by lhc  lower village of Gibsons. It was  generally agreed that priority  requirements for thc lower village included a marina, a drug  store, and a liquor outlet.  The two major celebrations  of lhc year, thc Dogfish Derby  and the Sea Calvalcadc, also  came into some considerable  discussion.    Chamber members  were informed that Molson  Brewery was most interested  in sponsoring thc Dogfish Derby.  Provision has already been made  in the provision budget for the  in lhc provisional budget for thc  brewery for this support. The  Dogfish Derby in all probability  will be scheduled to take place  in July, leaving the month of  August for Sea Calvalcadc which  will lake place August 11-13.  Thc Concerned Citizens Committee will again be responsible for  thc organization of the Sea  Calvalcadc  Fire again  A home on North Road was  completely gulled by fire al  approximately 8 p.m. on Sunday.  19th. The owner. Mr. Christiansen, had just recently turned  off the power in order lo begin  renovations on the building.  The building hc was living in  on the same properly was undamaged and hc managed to  rescue his vehicles by driving  them out to the highway.  One of ihe firemen who had  had lo pass thc burning building  on his way to the fire hall  described Ihe scene at that  time as being completely out of  control and was surprised that  they had been able to contain  it in short order.  Teachers give support  At thc general membership  meeting of February 14, thc  Sechelt Teachers' Association  voted unanimously to support  Carol Dulyk to gain reinstatement to her position as teller at  the Imperial Bank of Commerce.  Alter hearing a report on the  situation involving Ms Dulyk  the teachers expressed concern  over Ihe wage differentials between men and women employees, and the lack of promotion  opportunities for women in  banks. A number of teachers  have had past experience as  bank workers and related Ihat  working conditions were generally poor.  The greatest concern, however, according to Doris Fuller.  President of the STA, was Ihat  Ms Dulyk appears lo have been  dismissed for her union activities.  "It is thc democratic right of  people to organize to better  their economic and working condition without reprisals or sanctions," Ms Fuller said. "How  can wc leach children about citizen's rights and democracy if  a respected institution denies  these basic principles lo their  employees?'  Court news  At Ihe Provincial Court held in  Sechelt on Wednesday. February  -bib.

Sechelt and Killam  At hist Wednesday's Seehelt  Council meeting Alderman Morgan Thompson read a prepared  statement explaining remarks  he had made concerning the  eouneil's dispute with Mr. Killam  at a previous meeting, and apologising tor any misunderstandings  which had arisen from thc remarks. Mr. Killam had not arrived at the meeting at (his point  and there was no discussion on  the matter. The issue is at  present in the hands of both  parties' solieitors.  On Mr. Killam's arrival he  presented his plans lor ihe development of his property adjacent to the Seehelt Building  Supply complex. There were  several points of contention between Killam and the Council  related to (he land usage under  its present zoning. The two main  issues were Ihe si/e of the recreation area alloted for the  apartments and the long standing argument on the site of (he  lumber storage area.  In a memorandum from the  Regional Board, dated February  15th, the same date as the  Council meeting, the Regional  Planning Director Robytl Addison  outlined some of her findings  which she fell may be useful  to Council.  In regards to the lumber yard,  she felt that, "thc proposal as  presented is not simply legitimizing a nonconforming use  but seeks an extension of an  illegal use in lot A", and suggested that the storage area  be confined to lots K and 25,  while lot A should be made to  conform with the Commercial  Industrial zoning guidelines.  The communique also pointed  out that the high density shown  on the plans did not allow  sufficient area for parking requirements, and questioned "thc  advisability of such a dense  mixing of various uses".  Although (he Regional Board  had not been able to discuss  the matter with the Village Planner, Doug Roy, its recommendations were that a land use  contract he entered into, and (hat  the developer meet wilh the  Village Planner to discuss revisions to lhc proposal.  Mayor Nelson suggested that  the meeting between Mr. Killam  and thc planner he held before  the next Council meeting and a  report he prepared for presentational lhal lime.  Ihe lease tor the Arts Council  is mm close lo being finalized,  'Ihe   only   amendment   required  the   adjacent   land   as   a   public  works compound.  At the next meeting on March  1st. Alderman Kolihas will be  standing in for Mayor  Nelson   when   he   is  on   holiday  Gibsons  Marina  At meetings held last week  the Standing Committee of the  Gibsons Council to investigate  the possibility of a marina for  Gibsons Harbour held meetings  with interested parties lasl week  in the village of Gibsons. The  Committee consisls of Alderman  Larry Trainor and fed Hume  and appointees Commodore Ian  Morrow and Terry Amiel,  The committee let it be known  thai the Department of fisheries  will be making an economist,  Philip A.Ebcy, available on a  full-time basis for the time being  and are considering the Gibsons  Wharf as a possible model  project.  The plan calls for a three  hundred-and-fifiv boat facility  behind a concrete breakwater  in the middle of Gibsons Harbour which would he primarily  designed for pleasure boats  t   permanent   moorage.

Those who oppose a marina  say that they came here lo live in a rural  quiel and have no wish to see it transformed into an offshoot of the city. Both  groups are motivated, wc believe, by a  real affection for this place.  The fact of the matter is, of course,  thai change is inevitable and is taking  place all around us. To try to pretend  otherwise is akin to burying one's head  in the sand. Further, at the present  moment lhc change, the growth is  taking place in a very uneven fashion.  Because of thc development of the upper  village and the crucial lack of parking  in the lower village there is a serious  imbalance in the growth pattern of the  whole.  Nor is it in the interest of the lower  area alone that this imbalance be corrected. In thc long run the village of  Gibsons will have to function as an organic whole. It is not in the long range  benefit of anyone if the lower village  become something akin to a ghost town.  Already empty store fronts are beginning  to appear like so many rotten teeth in  the mouth of the lower village. A healthy  and viable waterfront is an absolute  necessity if the village of Gibsons is  to retain ils identity and its character.  At the present time it is being sadly  hampered not only by the lack of parking  for automobiles but also by the lack of  moorage and docking facilities for  water traffic. Commercial fishermen  complain bitterly about the congested  conditions at thc Government Wharf.  Not to put in a marina will not mean  that this problem will go away. Eventually if things don't improve it will be the  commercial fishermen who go away in  search of a better harbour and if they  do thev will take with  them the  half  John Daly  Elsewhere in this paper a fine tribute  is paid to John Daly by the people hc  lived among but perhaps a stranger  who knew him too slightly and too  briefly could be allowed a few words  of respectful observation. Every so often  in one's life one comes across a man or  a woman who. measured by any yardstick is exceptional. John Daly was such  a one. His house was crammed full of  good hooks; his head with ideas; his heart  with hope.  The sign carved on his home near  Garden   Bay  said.   "Put   vour  faith   in  humanity, not in gods or $". It was a  creed by which John Daly lived. In the  stormy night of human affairs where  dangerous reefs wait everywhere threatening the destruction of mankind this  Pender Harbour fisherman was a beacon  of steadfast hope and aspiration. He  cared and cared deeply; he believed and  believed steadfastly that the human spirit  would prevail and in so doing made  manifest the words of the poet that an  honest man is the noblest work of God.  To know him, even briefly, was to be  enriched.  from the files of Coast Hbm  a million dollars annually that they  bring into this area. Everyone, up and  down the hill would note the absence of  that money.  In the case of pleasure craft the situation is serious also. We are told that at  yacht clubs all over the Lower Mainland  signs are posted advising members  not to travel to Gibsons because of the  lack of moorage and the total absence  of showers and washroom facilities.  There may be those who say that this is  good because now we won't be bothered  but this would seem to be a short-sighted  position. If the village is going to be a  viable entity it must have an economic  life. It must be able to support at least  some of its young people so that they  are not automatically driven from home  unless they want to live with virtually  chronic unemployment. It must be able  to support some cultural activities. Man  does not live by scenery alone. Commerce is the life blood of civilization.  The challenge of civilized man particularly in the last decades of the twentieth  century is to encourage that commerce  without destroying the environment  which is the home of civilization.  It is the opinion, after some soul-  searching, of this newspaper that the  proposed marina in its present form is  a valiant and honest effort to redeem  both of these concerns. The lower village must be revitalized. Surely no one  wants to see it a ghost village. Already  the lack of a drug store is being seriously  felt by old age pensioners in the Bay  area. If the trend is not to continue  then steps must be taken immediately.  It behooves the residents of the village  to think the matter over carefully and if  they conclude that the drift of the lower  village into economic non-viability  should be reversed then the marina proposal which aims to do that deserves  some earnest and open minded consideration.  5 YEARS AGO  Faced with a vote of censure for failing lo observe proper procedure in affairs  between teachers and the school board,  three members of thc Sechelt Teacher's  Association executive have resigned.  They are President Virginia Douglas,  Vice-President Ian Jacobs, and Treasurer Mike Seymour.  Fire discovered al about 4 a.m. Tuesday resulted in a complete demolition  of Ihe building which housed the Red  Rooster Cafe on thc Highway in Davis  Bay.  10 YEARS AGO  The last of the tribal basket makers  and grand old lady of Sechelt Indian  Village.

The Commissioners were enthused by the prospect of obtaining a  breakwater.  25 YEARS AGO  Flu bug bites! This little demon has  taken its toll of teachers as well as students.

Our sincere advice to  you as motorists is to drop pressure of  your front tires in half. This will offset the terrible punishment the front  axle and mechanism have to stand.

Photo courtesy Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum. L. K Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  This would purport to be a  tribute to a dead horse. It's a  horse 1 never met, only read  about some twenty years ago.  1 don't know if you would say  that hc was a famous horse.  For many years I told lhc slory  of this horse lo people who'd  never heard of him and 1 could  sec that they thought 1 was  making him up.  Please understand me, I never  blamed them for this. I am by  no means certain that the horse  deserves to be famous. In fact.  I had reconciled myself years  ago to thc idea that, unsuccessful  in a most demanding business,  hc had gone off to thc glue  factory years and years ago.  But a couple of years ago I came  across reference to his name in  a column on the sports page and  I realized Ihat lie was remembered by at least a few.  Then, just a few weeks ago.  in the sports pages was a kind  of obituary notice for him.  He had just died in Tennessee  or Kentucky or some similar  horse heaven at thc age of  twenty-three. 1 believe hc dropped dead or was found dead in  his stall the day after leading  the town's annual parade which  hc had done for many, many  years.  The only reference given in  the notice of his passing concerning his sports career was that  he had been co-favourite with Tim  Tarn in the Kentucky Derby  in 1957 but that he had finished  ninth and dead last about forty  lengths behind the winner. Does  anyone know of any other horse  whose main claim to sports  fame would appear to be that  he finished dead last and a  long way behind, in thc Kentucky  Derby yet, whose passing was  noted twenty years later in thc  sports   pages   of  a   large   city  newspaper several thousands  miles west of anywhere he had  ever been? Ah. but this was no  ordinary horse, my friends.  His name was Silky Sullivan  and hc was a great red horse  rivalling Secretariat in size and  appearance and yes, possibly  even in ability. What made  Silky different was that he  wouldn't run, couldn't be made  to run unless he felt like il. He'd  never cause anybody any trouble.  He'd just coast along well behind  pveryonc else at three-quarter  speed, think his horsey thoughts  and enjoy himself. On some  great days, like lhc aforementioned Kentucky Derby, he'd  leave the gate dead last and  slay dead last to lhc end and  give absolutely no indication that  hc could run at all.  Of course, thc aslutc among  us will have realized already  that no horse gets to be the  co-favourite in thc Kentucky  Derby who finishes last in all  his races; and the truth of the  matter is that sometimes Silky  did decide to run and he was  truly awesome. I don't think  he ever came to the decision  early in thc race. Sometimes  he made his decision to get interested too late and finished  three lengths behind having  made up about forty in the  homestretch. Sometimes he  made up his mind in time and  came storming from behind  in a blur of equine inconquer-  ability to register some of the  most incredible come from behind victories ever recorded.  I'm sure that they tried all  manner of jockeys on him but  it seemed to make absolutely  no difference. No one could  gct Silky to run unless Silky  felt like it. Now thoroughbred  stallions with characteristics  such  as   these   are   not   often  allowed to go to stud. These  surely are nol Ihe characteristics racehorse owners want in  their beasts and yet Silky went  to stud. One would have thought  that some irate owner or trainer  would have taken a gun to the  wayward bundle of unfulfilled  potential, rather than to keep  him on honoured creature and  bring him out to lead thc town  parade each year. And what of  lhc rare equanimity of thc highbred racer which allowed him to  hc able lo lead a parade. I bel  hc thought the parade was all  for him.  Silky Sullivan first came to  my attention when his antics  began to hit the pages of thc  sports departments of North  America while hc was racing  as a three-year-old a few races  before Ihe Kentucky Derby.  I was never really sure what  it was about Silky Sullivan that  appealed lo mc but Ihe appeal  was immediate and long lasting.  I'm still puzzled about why  Silky Sullivan left such an indelible mark on my teenage consciousness. There is something  attractive about an aimiable  maverick and Silky was certainly  that. With malice toward none  he did exactly what he pleased  and just when it pleased him.  There is something magnificent  and thrilling about his incredible  come from behind victories and  I suppose what makes him attractive is some kind of compilation of thc two. 1 have no doubt  that he learned as a frisky two-  year-old before he went to the  races that he was the biggest  and the fastest horse around and  saw no reason to be forever  proving it.  Now while the combination  of colour and ability is a winning  one   I   hove   the   feeling   that  Slings 8c Arrows  George Matthews  Word has it that Mrs. Berger  is actually going to take me up  on my ridiculous and unchiv-  olrous challenge. One would  have hoped she had more sense.  It brings to mind the words of  a feminist author, "honor is a  luxury women connot Afford".  No one would think ony less of  the dear lady if she were to show-  good sense and withdraw gracefully. It's not that 1 wouldn't  mind meeting the gentle soul  but I'm genuinely concerned  that perhaps she doesn't understand what she's getting into.  I'm convinced she's in good  shape. All that funny food and  skipping and bouncing around  the gymnasium is bound to  count for something. A long distance run however is a feal  of a different order. It requires  an effort of the most strenuous  and painful kind.  Most people can't run more  than about 10 kilometres. Their  feet, legs. hips, lungs and brains  are not prepared for it. Ten  kilometres of pounding on paved  roads will completely wreck even  the fittest body. The feet are  the first to go. After about  five kilometres the bottoms of  the feet breok out into massive  blisters. It becomes o supreme  test of the will to even walk let  alone run. Thc back of thc heels  are the first to go, then the pads  of thc toes. I know what I'm  talking about. I run those long  distances all thc time.  After the feet become worn  raw, thc legs start to give out.  Thc body is not built to take  constant pounding on hard  surfaces. When you run, the  heel strikes the ground first. In  order to save Ihe legs you have  to run on your toes while going  up a steep hill. After about fifteen kilometres however, physical  exhaustion becomes a factor so  that the toes will no longer support the weight of the body.  When this happens the heel  slorts to come down first. On a  sleep hill for ten minutes this  means that the leg muscles get  stretched an extra two or three  inches. At the top of the hill  the legs become so painfully  cramped that runners have been  known to collapse.  If a runner has the mental  discipline lo cope with the  pain of leg cramps, the next  danger comes from the hip  joints. Eoch foot strikes the  blocktop every second. After  after about 2 hours the jarring of  the hip joints begins to take its  toll. People ignorant of the dangers have been known to be  crippled for life. Permanent  damage to joints in the form of  rheumatism ond arthritis are  almost unavoidable. Even the  finely tuned machine that is my  own body is beginning to show  the tell tale signs of sixteen years  of pounding over highways.  Oxygen efficiency goes without  saying. The sore aching muscles  of legs, arms ond shoulders  need a constant supply of oxygenated blood.  The most critical part of the  body however is the head.  Strangely enough the most  difficult port of running for  (wo hours is thc intense boredom  thol sets in. Thc humon mind  is not meant to deal with long  periods of one simple, mind  numbing task. Most people  give in out of sheer tedium.  The mind must be trained and  disciplined to deal with this  problem.  I'd really hate to see Mrs.  Bergcr subjected to this kind of  torture. When we see the Boston  Marathon on T.V. we see the  thousands who start and the hundreds who finish. What we don't  see are the crippled, maimed and  broken bodies strewn along  thc course.  I'm certainly not trying to  frighten Mrs. Berger. What she  docs to her own body is her  business. If she is resolved  to persist in this folly, I have some  training hints which may help.  First toughen up the feet. I  soak my feet in brine at least  an hour a night and avoid shoes  whenever possible. For the leg  muscles. 1 train in specially  built shoes with supports which  raise thc balls of thc feet about  two inches above the heel.  This stretches lhc muscles in  thc backs of the legs and assures maximum flexibility.  Lots of running of course. 1  recommend two hours a doy,  three days a week on hard  surfaces and one day a week  on sand or beach stones. If  dry, run barefoot.  Finally, cat some decent grub,  lots of steaks and potatoes, peas,  carrots, spinach.  The suggestion has been made  that the contest be held during  the Timber Days festivities.  While Ihis throws a wrench  into my training program, and  I'll now have lo be careful not  to peak too quickly, it seems a  reasonable suggestion. As for  now, I'd belter get back to my  training.  beyond the bare  beyond the bars  a patch <;/sunlight  Jading fast  in lite lush green grass  outside the wire  beyond the shotgun-guarded fence  some trees, a lake  a city  blue mountains in the distance  beyond ihe mountains  &Z*. sea and islands  it; MjeSvfcj:   j?.

For example,  1 found myself making reference  to him in competitive situations  which seemed hopelessly lost.  When the outlook for victory  seemed to be at the bleakest  possible I would say to myself  or to others "Did you ever hear  of Silky Sullivan?" Then I would  recount the tale and the moral  of my recounting was always that  however bleak the situation  seemed to be victory was always  possible.  What finally appealed to me  about Silky Sullivan was that  at no point did it ever occur  to him that he couldn't win if  he wanted to. Forty lengths  behind the finest and fittest running horses in the world and  Silky Sullivan knew he could  catch them. He didn't always  do it but he always knew he was  a winner. And who among us  when we consider his honoured  end after a dignified and pampered life can say that he was  wrong.  IrtMMBMMMMH Letters to the Editor  Coast News, February 21,1978.

Loc.f/21  Director  offended  Dear Sir:  Editing as you do a newspaper  that for the most part deals more  with fact than fancy, and therefore well serves thc population,  would you be kind enough to  reproduce the attached letter  in order that a little measure of  fact and justice prevail, and be  seen to prevail, please.  Charles Lee,  Director, Area 'C  CASA MESSINA,  Radcliffc Road,  Selma Park, B.C.  February 15, 1978  LETTER TO THE EDITOR  So you hod to do it again I  "Lee tries to go on record as for  a marina". Your report, or  misreport, said:- In fact said  Lee he and two other Directors  had supported the marina rezoning, is such a crass mistruth.  that I begin to wonder why  your reporter fell on her face  entering the meeting.  For the record, from script  written during Director Hoem-  berg's address, "1 have to correct Director Hoemberg's Statement that the board voted unanimously against the marina,  in fact five directors voted against  the marina and three abstained".  Simply put three directors abstained from voting, well aware  that an abstention counts as a  YES vote in thc sense that it is  not a CONTRARY vote, and the  reason is very simple, no tangible evidence had been put before  them upon which to register a  positive vote, and that is thc  proper and intelligent way to  represent those who in their  wisdom elected them lo office.  I later found that some very  tangible facts were in the possession of the Planner.  The fault lies in the failure of  Chairman Almond not instructing  the Secretary as to the correct  order of the vote. The mailer  was not of first consequence  until Director Hoemberg wrongly  stated that there wos a unanimous vote, and might never hove  been raised other than just another sloppy piece of work.  Your article is so stupid as to  defy belief. Ice has never said  thc board is illegal, he has and  still says Ihat IF certain premises  are not accepted then the board  is illegal etc.  Your partial reporting of the  Lawyer's letter is a companion  piece, and as you have had the  courtesy extended to you of a  full printed text on each and every  occasion, you are playing, either  by commission' or omission,  some silly little gome, perhaps  for sensationalism, to boost  the circulation of lhc Peninsula Times.  It would serve you better, and  certainly Ihe local citizenry, if  you bent your efforts to accurately  reporting facts, not fancies or  phantasies.  It is no accident, that problems  in both these matters centers  upon thc responsibility of Directors understanding upon what  they adjudicate on behalf of the  electors, ond according to thc  true International, and National  Parliamentary precepts either  cast a YES. a NO vote or for  whatever reason, obslain. Further it is the port of ihe sworn  duty uf the Chairman of the board  to ensure thot equity and accuracy arc strictly dispensed, in  this regard accuracy is not  served by quoting Lee as asking  for a full transcript of each and  every meeting, which is untrue,  hc did say that in order to check  on the accuracy of a meeting  that he discovered that a vital  piece of tape recording was  missing. Director Almond replied Ihat there "is no law  requiring tape recordings to be  made".  Charles Lee. Director Area C  i   Gibsons Public     i  ��� Library I  | Tuesday 2-4 p.m. !  !

RD.  / GIBSONS  886-2200  Garbage  Editor:  A brief note, re: "A Garbage  Dump in Roberts Creek", as discussed by the Regional Board,  and "Regional Board" by Geo.  Gibb.  In reading these articles, I  detect a strong whiff of "double  standard" stink - and in this case  it isn't "Something Smells Rotten  in Denmark".  Mr. Gibb it would seem, does  Ihe yo-yo trip because a major  highway is proposed, which will  border the back of his property.  Yet at the some time he has no  compunction about a garbage  dump in my back yord.  Since Mr. Gibb will not now  lie down in front of a D-8 cat,  may 1 suggest hc come lie down  in the garbage, proposed for  Roberls Creek, and in turn, I'll  lie down in front of the bulldozer on lhc proposed "superhighway".  J. E. Belanger  Park Ave. RR #2  Gibsons, B.C.  And again  Editor:  Regarding the Regional District hiring Dayton & Knight to  investigate where in Roberts  Creek the new garbage dump  should be. "if the people want  it."  In the Official Roberts Creek  Community Plan, put together by  the residents of Roberts Creek,  it is recommended that Roberts  Creek support and encourage  recycling instead of the weekly  garbage pick-up. Most people  felt that every other week for  pick-up was quite adequate, and  the weekly pick-up unnecessary  and expensive. How in heck did  the Board ever think Roberts  Creek would support a garbage  dump?  Images of car wrecks, old  refrigerators and green plastic  bags strewn along the road,  dance in my head. Do those  community plans, after all these  months of meetings, discussions,  etc. influence anything the  Regional District plans or does?  Does the Regional Board read  them? Was it all for naught?  L. Lepp  Roberts Creek  Detective  Dear Sir:  It is hoped that a detective  story without murder, fraud or  other crime may be sufficiently  novel as to win space in your  paper.  There is such a story of a  Canadian Army unit that served  throughout Europe WW2. This  unit, the 65 TANK TRANSPORT  COY. RCASCwas disbanded in  Holland in 1945. Ex-members  departed for civy street in every  part of Canada and contact  between individuals was lost.  Twenty-eight years later,  two former members met in  Flin Hon, Manitoba and speculated on what had happened to  their wartime friends. It was  decided to try for some answers.  It should be noted that a 28  year old trail is a cold trail and  difficult to follow. The first  answer was a shock, a man  remembered as a happy joking  youth and unit favorite was  found dying in an Edmonton  hospita. A notice in the Legion  Magazine produced eight replies, all from the area between  Sydney, N.S. and Powell River,  B.C.(a truly generous hunting  preserve). The search became a  chain reaction as the members  when found joined in the endeavour. After some progress had  been made, the undertaking was  organized by province with exchange of information. Leads  were dredged up from memory,  unit daily orders (source Ottawa  Records), from old address  books, phone books, old photos,  etc.  Four and a half years of detective work has located 210  living ex-members and about 35  deceased out of a possible of  about 700. The search continues.  Will anyone reading this,  please check with your WW2  army acquaintances, if a 65th  man be found, please advise  him of a company reunion to  be held at North Bay, Ontario,  July 7-8-9, 1978. For reunion  details and other important information, he should contact  Maurice Rainsforth, P.O.Box  1071, Stirling, Ontario, 613-  395-3052 (or the writer).

COLD YEARS AT COI.DITZ  One of the minor byproducts  of World War Two was the emergence of a new film genre, the  prisoner-of-war movie. On a  superficial level, these picture?  have a good deal in common with  many civilian prison films such  as Birdman of Alcatraz, Cool  Hand Luke or the great Warner  Brothers' jaithouse epics ot  thc Thirties. In both cases,  incarcerated men (or women)  shake unwilling time and yearn  for freedom under conditions ot  privation and often, brutality.  Here the two forms diverge  however. The civilian prisoners  are there for a multiplicity ol  reasons that range from "being  framed" to committing murder while the war-prisoners  share thc single "crime" of  "being the Enemy". This gives  them a solidarity and singularity  of purpose, the civilians traditionally lack.  There have been a number of  excellent films based on the travails of thc men taken captive  in this grimmest of all idealogical  clashes. Who can forget Alec  Guinness as thc unbreakable  British colonel in Bridge On The  River Kwai? Or William Holden  running his endless scams and  angles in Stalag 17. Other  sterling movies on this theme  that spring to mind are The  (ireat Escape with Steve McQueen, and his cronies pulling  their incredible mass-break, or  The Wooden Horse, another more  modest but equally-gripping  film. But by far Ihe most im-  impressivc treatment of the  subject is not in a-movie at all.  It is in a twenty-six-episode  British television series entitled  Colditz. (Evidently thc series  was based in part on a 1957  film called The Colditz Story  which I haven't seen but which  wasn't, by all accounts, panic-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ularly outstanding.) Colditz,  of course, is the massive German  fortress, designated by Hitler  early in the War as a place of  confinement for officers of several nationalities, with significant escape records. In addition  to a large British contingent.  Polish. French and Dutch prisoners were also held there.  1 approached the series initially  with considerable scepticism.  While the premise might he sufficient to carry a feature film.  I failed to see how it could he so  drastically extended without  becoming grindinglv monotonous, terminally depressing  or both. Amazingly, Colditz  manages to avoid either of these  pitfalls. This is due to extremely  well-written scripts that stress  believable situations and fully-  realized characters. It is also  due. as with most British productions, to flawless casting and  acting, down to the humblest  bit part.  Colditz (much of the footage  seems to have been filmed in the  actual castle) is a huge, brooding  place, a stern relic of earlier  times. It appears to be virtually  escape-proof and the Germans  have picked it for this reason.  But they have no accurate structural plan of the castle. The place  is a warren of bricked-up passageways and disused sewer-  systems. Through these chinks  in thc armour of the ancient  fortress, the ingenious prisoners  plot constantly to achieve freedom. The bulk of thc episodes  revolve around the theme of  escape and some of the postulated methods are imaginative  indeed.    (One group is actually  "REMEMBERING ROBERTS CREEK"  New Book.

It is a constant game of  cat and mouse with captor and  captive doggedly trying to  anticipate each other's next  move. The tension in thc best  segments sometimes builds  to an almost-unbearable pitch  worthy of Hitchcock at his nerve  tingling besl.  Complex interpersonal relationships between the German  officers and their charges as  well as between themselves,  provide much of the fascination  of Ihis scries. There are a good  number of continuing characters  hut several pivolal figures predominate. Certainly, one of the  most-important is the Commandant, a career Wermachl officer  played by Bernard Hepton. He  is a man of greal fairness who  abides scrupulously by the  Geneva Convention and has considerable respect for the dignity of his prisoners. Stern on  occasion bul never ruthless,  he harbours the secret misgivings of many of his class about  thc Hitler regime. His chief  security-officer is a sinister-  looking, hatchet-faced man  called Ullman (Hans Meyer)  who seems at first glance to be  thc typical sadist from every  thirdratc war-movie you ever  saw. Ullman. however, is no  stereotype either. A former  accountant, he juggles the probability-statistics of escape and  performs his role like a chessplayer, in a highly-civilized'  manner. He shares many of  his superior's feelings in regard  to thc Nazi lunatic-fringe.  Thc British contingent around  which, most of the key action  centres, is under the command of  Colonel Preston, skillfully underplayed by .lack Hedley, (If there  is sueh a thing as a "typically  English face" Hedley certainly  has it.) Preston is totally dedicated lo promoting escape-  attempts but also in maintaining  a tolerable relationship with the  Germans. Il is a highly-tricky  position to maintain. Some of  ; lhc confrontations between  ! Preston and Ihe Commandant  .ace���niatveJlously     carried-off  with the Englishman appealing  to the other's innate decency  and frequently winning his  points.  The two "name" actors in the  series are Robert Wagner and  David McCallum, both much  better served here than in the  lightweight roles with which  they are all too frequently  saddled. Wagner plays Lt.Phil  Carrington, a Yank with the  R.A.F. prior to Pearl Harbour  who has had thc misfortune  to be shot down. Simon Carter,  played by McCallum, is also  an R.A.F, officer who has arrived  at Colditz under similar circumstances. The two give sincere  and convincing performances,  particularly McCallum who appears in most of the episodes.  The series covers most of the  span of World War Two but until  the final episodes, that conflict  remains very much in the background. Colditz is an island:  a microcosm, separated by its  high walls from the bloody  uproar that is shaking the civilized world. The first couple  of segments deal with the establishment of the prison and the  arrival of the initial captives.  The British under Preston,  establish an escape-committee  almost immediately and begin  exploring possibilities. There  are a number of unsuccessful  attempts. In one of these a  desperate Scotsman who has  received a Dear Jock letter,  is shot to death on the wire outside the walls. In another.Pres-  ton receives simultaneously,  the news of his wife's death in  an air-raid along with the ironic  information, that he has been  awarded the D.S.C. Worried  about his children, he joins a  group that is attempting to  break out through a tunnel.  They are betrayed by a supposedly-bribed guard and Preston is put up for court-martial.  The Commandant later rescinds  the order when he learns of the  British officer's loss.  In a crucial two-part episode,  Phil Carrington, along with three  other men, makes a successful  breakout over the steep castle  roofs by night. After a hair-raising journey by train and foot,  during which they are almost  apprehended by the Gestapo.

The  other two men are eventually  recaptured and one is seriously  wounded in the process. The  mass-escape comes to the ears  of Hitler himself who is predictably apoplectic. Tighter  security is ordered immediately  and to this end, a new and  truly-fanatical officer appears  on the scene to act as the Commandant's second-in-command.  Major Mohn (Anthony Valentine)  is a war hero, wounded on the  Russian front; a devout Nazi  who has met Hitler and venerates him. Hc institutes a reign  "of repression and harrassment  'and-is-universally loathed. Fortunately for the prisoners, the  Commandant dislikes Mohn  also and nips many of his more-  excessive practices in the bud.  The War begins to draw to a  close. Phil Carrington, now  serving with the Invasion force,  is recaptured along with an American colonel played by Dan  O'Herlihy. The Allied Forces  roll inexorably towards the fortress-prison. Major Mohn,  realizing at last that thc War  is lost, attempts to ingratiate  himself with the prisoners  to insure leniency from the  liberators, but his ruthless practices have earned him the hatred  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds at Campbell's  Family Shoes & Leather  Goods In down-town Sechelt.  of every man in the place. Finally, hc attempts lo blackmail  the Commandant himself and is  relieved of his duties. Donning  civilian clothes, he flees Ihe  prison like a rat from a sinking  ship.  Now the sounds of battle  become audible to the jubilant  prisoners. Their jubilance is  dampened somewhat when the  advancing Americans, thinking  Colditz a military fortification,  begin lo shell the castle.

ONE  * DAY ONLY V  ***���*������ ���*  CLOSING OUT SALE  * 45% OFF *  EVERYTHING  SATURDAY, 25th OF FEBRUARY  STARTS AT 10 A.M.  LOWER GIBSONS Here it is. weeks have gone  by, and every time one starts  reading this column there's an  immediate plea for indulgence  on behalf of the author, usually  some lame excuse about how  he's read no hooks this week  but he's going to fill the space  anyway with treacly personal  reminiscence or addled philosophical leaky gumboot whistlings in the dark. Not this week.  I've read three good books this  week, and where my most  recent columns for this paper  have been something like three  day old spinach casseroles,  that you'd served to your dog  and still have it rejected, this  column is going to be a fresh,  tasty, light and scrumptious literary souffle of words, with  nuances of tastes skillfully  blended with the pungent aroma  of heady intellectual thought.  Reprints of this column may  still be obtained while thc supply  lasts.  The first of thc three books  1 read was Alden Nowlon's  Smoked Glass, a collection of  poetry. Mr. Nowlon, from  what I can gather from his  poems,   is   a   man   of   middle  age presently living in a small  town somewhere in the east  of Canada. This is a small book  but its contents are much greater  than thc flimsy skin in which  it's wrapped. It's full of extremely powerful poems, which in  turn are full of sadness and death  and love and losing love and  births and tragedies and tiny  events made into entire worlds,  and belly-shaking laughter,  and. in short, all the things  that fill good poems. Alden  Nowlon has an eye for weather  that would do a fisherman proud.  He has an car for thc speech of  his fellows that can capture a  rhythm in the way W.B.Yeats  once could.  Nowlon writes of his small  town, and when he's done you  feel like you've been living there  since you were a child. We are  introduced to everyone, from  the poet's son, drawing a map,  who wants to know: "What  colour is Manitoba?", all the way  to the woman who works in the  chocolate factory and can play  eighteen bingo cards at once.  "Try that", she says, "and see if  it don't sweep everything else out  of your mind." We meet all the  DRUMMOND INSURANCE  HEADQUARTERS FOR  & TRAVEL INSURANCE  ���  J    Dental Block, Gibsons        886-7751  i Open Monday - Saturday  oldtimers in town, like old Tom  Long, who talks about horses:  "Father was the teamster./  drove horses all his life./It was  him that told me a horse's eyes/  is different than a man's eyes./  Horse thinks a man is fifteen  feet tall./Wasn't for that, horse  would take over/the world."  And we meet dry-as-dust professors, whom Nowlon clearly dislikes, and Luther thc town blind  man, and thc magician who  turned his wife into a puppet,  and the cattle drover, who says  of his full-grown herd of bulls:  "Of course once they start they  finish you,/...can't blame them  for thalyit's the smell of blood  that docs it."  Alden Nowlon is a damned  good poet. He's got a lot of juice  and hc shakes his fist at all the  things that need to be threatened.  His "Telephone Poem" is one  of the best in this book, and  I'll quote the first stanza of it to  end what I have to say about  Smoked Claw. "There's much  to be said for taking out/the telephone/1 tore ours off the wall  once and felt/like a fool/until the  event passed into family legend./  Since then I've never thought  about/that night/without feeling  expansive. The memory/is  enough/to make me invite friends  to dinner./Anyone who has  ever torn a telephone/out by the  roots/will know what I mean.  It enlarges/the soul."  The next book I read was the  Penguin Dictionary of Historical  Slang, a collection of slang words  from as far back as the seventeenth century. I didn't actually  read it, but I did skim through  it and came upon some thoroughly enjoyable words and  phrases, some of which were  familiar to me such as: "the  cockles of your heart" and  "fit as a fiddle" and "full of  beans" or "gadabouts", "gaffers", and "gallipots" (this  last one meaning an apothecary), and some of which were  new to mc. including various  terms of opprobrium such as  calling someone a "pig-sconce",  a "slubberdcgullion". or if he's  overweight, a "tripes and tril-  libubs". ,  Much of the Dictionary of Historical Slang is unfit for mention  in a family newspaper. It seems  that a great deal of slang consists of various words describing  portions of thc female anatomy,  or words that arc slang for thc  act of sexual intercoutse, such  as: "playing at itch-buttocks"  or having a little "jig-a-jig"  or engaging in a bit of the old  "matrimonial polka". Another  large portion of slang seems to be  devoted to the art of over-indulgence in alcoholic beverages,  and 1 was surprised to discover  that one can not only gct drunk,  one can also get: "snickered",  "sozzled", "swinny", "go out  on the fuddle" or gct totally  "tostificated". Besides these,  the dictionary also contains some  generally useful phrases that I  liked: a person who could  "argue the leg off an iron pot"  THE  WEEKEND SPECIAL  H  BAR-B-Q  0  M  E  SPARERIBS  ******** Catering ********  through winter  months  s  up to 50 people  T  E  weddings, parties, small banquets  HOURS:  Tues.-Thurs.       10:30-8:00 p.m.  A  Frl.-Sat.       10:30-10:00 p.m.  closed Monday  D  Field Road, Wilson Creek  885-2933  or a night that was as "black as  the F.arl of Hell's waistcoat",  or someone who "looked like a  dying duck in a thunderstorm".  I wish I could relate some of the  non-family newspaper ones but  right now I'm so restless I'm  "up and down like a fiddler's  elbow", "three sheets to thc  wind" and "sitting like a toad  on a chopping block".  Faber's Book of Epigrams and  Epitaphs is the third of lhc books  I read ihis week, and like the  other two. a pure distillation of  words, including those special  short poems that it took people  months to write and yet appear  as if they were tossed off in a  minute. They range on nearly  all subjects but mostly they contain that extremely dry form of  English wit that can reduce a  person lo rubble in the space of  two sentences. Here arc a few  especially good ones to close out  this review: "There arc two  miseries in human life;/to live  without a friend, and with a  wife." Or the friendly epitaph  by Belloc: "Here richly with  ridiculous display/killed by  excess was Wormwood laid  away./While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged./I  wept: for I had longed to sec  him hanged."   Belloc also pro  duced some nice lines to be engraved on sundials: "I am a  sundial. Ordinary words/Cannot  express my thoughts on birds."  And then there's that nice epitaph that seems to sum up so  much: "Life is a jest, and all  things show it./I thought so once;  but now I know it."

In the past while, horses  roaming loose are reported becoming an increasing annoyance  to some of the residents in the  Porpoise Bay Area. Although  from what the RCMP at Sechelt  tell me, it has not reached the  stage where the animals arc  hiding behind tree stumps waiting to pounce on unsuspecting  gardens, but the situation docs  remind me of what happened  to Mary Livingstone's horse last  year. It is a friendly animal  but on one occasion when it  was off for a trot by itself it  became thc target of a barrage  shotgun and B.B.pellets. It  would be too bad if thc trigger  happy individual had moved to  Porpoise Bay and a similar situation occurred.  Wildlife?  1:04 p.m. Sunday. February  19th, (right now) I'm banging  on the typewriter, and 1 hear an  enquiring voice behind me at  the typesetting machine,  "There's a letter here and it's  unsigned. From the writing  style it looks like an old person,  can vou tell me what to do with  it?"  Always being the helpful  kind 1 stop everything and dash  to the rescue, and discover that  the letter in question is George  Matthews' column.

GORDON AGENCIES LTD.  ttbtlt 115-1011  week, an old gripe of mine came  up. Ihe decision democratically decided upon, to banish  leghold traps in Canada. No  killing is ever pleasant, whether  it's shooting a moose and taking  only the head as a trophy, or  butchering a cow to eat, but  when considering the survival  of a species, wc must include  human beings as also being  animals living on thc Earth.  The leg hold trap is a cruel  way to kill an animal and whether  the new model is more humane  or not is a matter of greatest  interest to the animal caught and  not the point of my gripe.  What has annoyed me for some  time is the way the change over  to thc new model was put into  effect. Thc trappers were told.  "Change now. This is the law.  The people of Canada have  voted on this and it is the wish  of thc majority." Most of the  populace in Canada have never  even seen a trap, other than in  displays or documentaries,  far less used one (I think their  use is outlawed in the West End  of Vancouver and other built  up areas, and yet that is where  the majority of the voters are).  In many cases trapping is so  marginal that a more financially-  rewarding existence could be  gained from welfare. The traps  used are as important to the trapper as his boat is to a fisherman  and yet the government has  told the trappers to change over  to a different system which  would cost three times as much  without as much as allowing them  a phasing-in period. Perhaps  the International Wildlife Society should add trappers to  their list of vanishing species.  John Daly  I just heard today that John  Daly has passed away. For those  who knew him the mention  of his name is enough to describe  him. and for those who did not  have thc pleasure, he was a  Greal Gentleman, socially and  naturally.  When my relatives came to  visit from Scotland last year,  a high point in Ihe visit was  an afternoon at his home in  Garden Bay. His unselfish  interest, concern and generosity left an indelible impression  on them.  1 have recently taken two  introductory lectures in Transcendental Meditation, and from  my understanding of it, what  the practitioners are trying to  teach John Dalv came bv natur-  allv.  #:ri  SHRIMP        FRESH     PRAWNS  Due to Dept. of Fisheries regulations  there will be no prawns during march.

Coast strokers  by Dennis Gray  1 have never been a very  successful hunter, whether because of poor aim, buck fever  or temporary compassion. The  result is usually little more than a  defoliated swath of countryside  with no injuries. It's not too  surprising, if the targets of  these columns are running, free  and unscathed. Most of the response to this writing has been  from anti-bikers, ladies over sixty-five, or both.  It was only recently that a  man with a "no tresspassing"  sign on his back road, pointed  out that bikers can't read. (I  expect if his target was bikers,  his aim would be better than  mine) I understand how he  feels, but most bikers just want to  get to some remote area where  they can ride.  Problem is, getting there;  if they have a truck or trailer,  it's just finding some place  without signs to ride, if they are  minors they have a double problem. These young people are  thc largest group of off road  bikers and unfortunately they  have the least influence in obtaining what they want.  Motorcycling is a good recreational sport, but particularly  for these young people, it can  occupy much of their spare time,  energy and thoughts; it is good  physical recreation that helps  prepare them for a lifetime  of highway driving; it teaches  them to perceive distance, speed  and stopping times; it gives them  good balance and reflexes and  teaches them regard for other  drivers.  These kids obtain a bike most  often by hard work and saving.  Then they arc expected to go  away and not bother anyone.  Most people no longer regard  them as children of thc community, and put up signs, fences  or wires to try to get rid of them.  These kids aren't asking for  much: just a piece of land  where they can ride. They  aren't asking for a large building,  a paved parking lot or a highway to get them there.  In many areas, such as Powell  River, the kids rely on the benevolence of private land owners.  In other areas thc regional or  town councils accept responsibility and provide the land,  and some are even able to show  a profit by charging admission.  Such is the case where the Indian  Band has put some spare land  to good use in Williams Lake.  With good riding weather just  around the corner, let's hope  you non -bikers can read the  signs and help to provide some  riding area away from' your  homes.

The Haggarty foursome from  Powell River reached the A  event final by defeating localite  John Crosby, while North Shore's  Hamilton rink gained thc other  final berth by defeating Nagai  of Haney.  In thc B event, Mike Clement  defeated Mission's Hillman rink  and thc Story rink took the local  Krintilla team for the other  spot in the only all-local final.  Brian Gilchrist, a familiar  bonspiel finalist, won his chance  to enter the C event final by  defeating Cameron of North  Van. The Nanson rink, also from  North Vancouver, had to gct by  our well-known highschool  skip. Darren Craze, to capture  the other berth. One spot in  the D event final was taken  by the Will rink from Delta when  they defeated thc local Loden  rink. The other semi-final game  went to the Suveges team when  they defeated Morrison of the  North Shore.  Final standings are as follows:  A Event:  Haggarty Rink.M&M  Log Sorting Trophy.  B   Event:   Clement   Rink.Royal  Bank of Canada Trophy.  C    Event:    Gilchrist    Rink.Ted  Hume Services Trophy.  Wanderers  by Bamlbus & Co.  Those of you who thought the  Vancouver Canucks were bad  would have called them stars  compared to the Wanderers  this week. Last week, the Wanderers played their hearts out  only to lose 2-0 to the top placed  West Van Royals. This week,  the Wanderers, except for Art  Dew, played like a bunch ol  retired postal workers as they  watched last place Shamrock  Labatts miskick their way to  a 1-0 victory. The Labatts by  the way are no longer in last  place as a result of this victory  and should be given full marks  for their hustle and quick checks.

From the Cab Stand  bv Ihe Hack  Since last week's maiden effort  ��as, for thc most part, received  favourably, I'm back at the stand  again. I gather that the Company  has been taking a man-in-the-  back-seat poll. One or two of  the victims of this impromptu  cross-questioning had the temerity to suggest that my recitation  of minor disasters presented  Sun Dispatch in an unfavourable light and cast aspersions on  thc honour of cab-drivers everywhere.  "Don't take it so hard,"  said Murray Watson, with a  sly grin, as I was on the point  of committing hari-kiri  with  a  �� Crafts & Hobbies  Seaside Plaza, Gibsons  886-2811  Our Handicraft Drop-in  Centre will be continuing  Tuesday and Thursday  at 7:30 p.m.  ��  .^1  ���J*  '-.\ :  886-9414  BATHROOT  PLUS  BounQMe  McGregor  SHOWER CURTAINS  BATH ACCESSORIES  BEADED TIE BACKS  SHOWER HOOKS  SOAPS  FIELDCREST TOWELS  VANITY TOP  MIRRORS  SHOWER RODS  TOWEL TREES  SOAP DISHES  886-9414  BATHROOMS  PLUS  ��  WE CARRY A COMPLETE LINE  w     OF PLUMBING SUPPLIES  PULSATING  SHOWER  HEADS  tVdelVneplumbingTheati'nq contractors  residential, commercial - free estimates  $1.69  SPECIALS  MEATS  SIDE BACON  $1.59  COTTAGE ���  ROLLS  ::: PRODUCEr  Lettuce      Head 39t  ::Tr"ozenf1ds:::  Brentwood  Frozen Peas -   89t  Bic pen, "Next week you can  write  about  one  of  the  good  days."   (He's been in the business a lot longer than 1 have and  he   knows   perfectly   well   that  was one of the good days)    1  exaggerate.    Love of hyperbole  is one of my vices and my only  saving  grace.     It   incidentally  makes me  eminently   qualified  to drive a taxi.   There are other  qualifications,   of  course.      A  certain limited skill in the control of an automobile is demanded  by  thc   Department   of  Motor  Vehicles and is understandably  appreciated by thc passengers.  Thc ability to add and subtract  numbers under one hundred is  also useful, if you plan to make  any money at the job.   A basic  knowledge   of   mechanics   and  electronics  can   be   invaluable,  as those familiar with last week's  adventures will   have   realized.  Other, more arcane skills, such  as thc ability to read  a map,  have their place.    Some people  are unable to read a map because   of   a   visual   disability  which doesn't prevent them from  driving an ordinary car.   When  1 first started to drive cab, one  of the other rookies was a middle-aged man who suffered from  this affliction. We were working  for Crown Cabs then, and one  of the first things a rookie was  taught was to carry a map-book  at all times and know how to  use it.   This is an absolute necessity in any  urban  cab  fleet  since the dispatchers have too  many cars to deal with to give  out complex directions on the air.  Woe betide the rookie who loses,  forgets, or, God forbid, is too  lazy to use his map-book.    If  he has the audacity to interrupt  the dispatcher for directions, the  Voice of the Airwaves will ask,  in tones of martyred patience,  "Do you  have   a  map-book?"  If the reply is negative, the supplicant receives rapid-fire directions to the  nearest stationery  store and a price quotation on  the missing article.   If the reply  is foolishly affirmative, the first  question  will   be   followed   by  "Do you know how to use it?"  At   this  point,   not   even   the  thrashed    radio    speaker    can  disguise the sarcasm behind the  mocking solicitude of The Voice.  The   inquisition   usually   ends  there.     Dispatchers  know  the  map-book like a scriptural scholar  knows the Bible.     They know  what's in it and what isn't. Generally they assist drivers, particularly new ones, when they encounter an idiosyncrasy of the  business not covered by regular  procedure,  but  silly   questions  can   try   their   patience   when  they've  got upwards of thirty  cars all  trying  to  clear,  book  away, get permission to flag,  or change zones at once, plus the  phones ringing off the hook and  trips backed up to Doomsday.  My fellow rookie who couldn't  read a map didn't survive the  first two weeks. He kept getting  lost. He constantly picked up  his fares late and when he cleared  he couldn't give his location.  Cruising in search of landmarks  and directions takes ttme.and in  the taxi business time really  is money. (While I'm reminiscing, I'd like to say hello to  Roberts Creek resident Dave  Richardson, a former manager  at Crown Cabs and the man  who broke me into this business.  Do you still hear the meter  ticking in your sleep, Dave?)  As I started out to say, there  arc other qualifications.   In fact,  the   more   varied   the   better,  since   you   never   know   what  you're going to run into (literally).  But thc most important quality  a  cab-driver  can   have   is   an  interest in people and  places,  because, while the odd passenger  wants to be chauffeured to his  destination in strict,  respectful  silence, people are fundamentally  gregarious.   They love to talk,  mostly   about  themselves,   it's  true,  but  if you're   interested  in people it's no bother. If you're  not,   then  you're  just   hauling  freight.    People do get lonely,  even  on  the  Sunshine   Coast,  and even talking to a  relative  stranger can be  a  relief.     A  friend of mine, driving in the  city, once had a customer who  had him drive around the block  for three hours, just  to  have  someone to talk to.     Besides,  the idea of two  people,  even  total   strangers,    taking    what  often, especially on the peninsula, amounts to a lengthy drive  together in complete,   ignorant  silence has always struck me as  ridiculous.      It   doesn't   often  happen. The people of Gibsons,  Sechelt,   and   points   between  have been consistently friendly  and  helpful,  particularly  when  1 was new to the area and frequently hadn't the slightest idea  where I was.    No matter how  long you've lived in a place and  how  well  you  flatter   yourself  you know it,  one  day  behind  the wheel of a taxi will convince  you that you've been a stranger  in your own backyard the whole  time.   The job leads you down  some strange rabbit-holes  and  not  infrequently  into  company.  as unusual as any you   might  encounter  at  your   local   Mad  Hatter's afternoon tea.   On that  subject, more next week.  Meanwhile, to placate Murray; a good  day is when the car runs like a  top, a constant stream of smiling,  cheerful   people   pass   through  your clutches,   you   engage  in  varied and stimulating  conversation and get paid for it, the sun  shines on places you've  never  John burns, Equus  but no smoke!!!  by Fran Berger ^^^^  Some suspicions I've had seem  to lately be receiving some subtle confirmations, and a bemused  twinkle in a certain dear editor's  somewhat Machiavellian eye  has me guessing that the fickle  finger of fate has been wagging  at me with some little outside  interference and urging these  past few months. How else could  it have possibly happened  that I now find myself not only  having to try to jog as far as I  can from Gibsons to Sechelt,  but have also been invited to  climb a hill at the ungodly  hour of 7:30 in the morning!  "Am I really meant to do  these things? How did I get  into this? Could I have done it  all by myself?", I ask whoever  it is that I talk to when I'm alone.  And a faint, small light of understanding begins to glow way back  in my mind, and with a dawning  nod I recognize that glimmer  as the same one I've seen shining  in that certain editor's eye!  Just as 1 suspected! I've been  framed! And with that realization let me add one more to the  number of "exposays" being  revealed to the unsuspecting  people of the Sunshine Coast!  It's Burnside who's behind this  whole thing!!!  Dear John has had a go at  many of us in the last while -  we at the Fitness Service, and  my also probably unsuspectingly  duped, soon-to-be acquaintance,  George Matthews - and it's now  time for him to have his turn  at being on center stage. As an  actor of no little stature, although  I myself have never borne witness  to any of his performances save  those staged most ELOQUENTLY  and with abounding hilarity in  our office in Whitaker House ���  scenes enacted, I now discover,  and ulteriorly motivated to win  our confidence and disclose  our frailties - as an accomplished  actor, Mr. Burnside will undoubtedly feel right at home in thc  limelight, and in being revealed  may ultimately serve as an inspiration to us all.  Mr. Burnside has been a spur  in my side for some time now,  being the one who initially prodded mc, with great snorts of  ' glee and threats to take up the  issue himself if I didn't, when I  been before whose discovery  delights you, during the lulls  you read good poetry and admire  the sun on the Sound, and a  dear little lady tells you that you  must keep yourself in a state of  grace owing to the hazardous  nature of your profession, I'm  doing my best. Over and out.  YOM.'S  RESTAURANT  Sunnycrest    Shopping     Plaza,  886-8015  HOME DELIVERY  first mentioned that 1 was considering questioning George  Matthews on his previously  inconsistent approach to Fitness.  Being successful on that count,  I suspect he then launched an  empassioned verbal tirade, easily  convincing George hc must  get that Bergcr woman and tic  her to the stake (which hc did!),  and as it has been Burnside  sparks that have added fuel to  the fire from both sides, I think  that it's about time hc got in on  thc roast, too!  As poetic justice would have it,  Dear John got a bit too near  the fitness fire hc had started,  and without irrevcrance to his  fatherland hero, suffered  BURNS. His first close brush  last year was enough to send him  weekly puffing to the top of  Nob Hill, an event of such significance that it resulted in a  major change in the caption of  his "Musings" column, and is  still being continued. Then there  was the memorable day he came  to our office in a state of such  calm sobriety that, after relaying  tales of past escapades of the  liquid variety, he solemnly vowed  to give up close encounters  of the "fifth" kind! And now,  not only did he privately confide  it to us in the confines of the  Fitness office, but publicly did  he declare on the pages of his  own newspaper that he has  given up smoking! And he wants  to jog the marathon with us!  My fitness freak's heart is about  to burst with joy at such reformation! How can 1 denounce  his malicious infiltration and  exposure of the Fitness Service  when it has resulted in so much  good? (Although we haven't  seen you out jogging with us  yet like you promised, John!)  But 1 do feel I must explain.  I have no idea how or when the  white sugar first came into our  office, but I do know the only  time I have seen it used was when  a certain editor insisted he could  not drink his tea without it -  and proceeded to plunk into his  teacup many more lumps than  Tequila Two-Fingers can count  on one hand! But we can soon  set all that straight. Mr. Burnside, the next time you are in  the vicinity of Sechelt, you are  invited to attend the final rites  and mass burial of the sugar  cubes. With appropriate ceremony and much pomp and ado  we shall be rid of the sweet poison  once and for all: we'll fittingly  flush it down the so-called  "John"!!!!!!

A .1.  and Debbie Rhodes  Because of our relatively mild  climate, the main complaints our  horses seem to suffer from,  arc coughs, flu and parasite  infestation. Generally all can  be avoided by preventative maintenance.  Horses infested with worms  are susceptible to any virus  that is going around, and because  their system is in poor condition  they will have a much harder  time fighting off any illness.  The best way to tell if your  horse needs worming is to have  his feces examined by a veterinary lab. They will be able to  tell you what type of parasites  are present. The only sure way  of worming is lo "stomach  tube". This is a fairly involved  process that must be performed  by a veterinarian. Thc veterinarian uses a soft hose that he  passes through the horse's  nose and into his stomach. He  then uses a syringe-like device  to pump the required amount  of liquid wormer right into the  horse's stomach. This procedure  should be repeated four times  a year, in this area.  Coughs and thc flu are generally transmitted from one horse  to another in the spring at any  large gathering, such as play-  days, or horse shows. The  symptoms are a heavy mucous  discharge from the nose and a  dry deep cough. These symptoms  sometimes persist for up to six  months. It seems that if well  cared for and given a restful  schedule, the symptoms clear up  of their own accord. We would  advise that you get a sure diagnosis before labeling your horse's  problem as a very dangerous  illness, known as "strangles",  can start off with the same  symptoms.  We recommend that you feed  your horse well, keep him warm  and dry and worm him on a  regular schedule. This will  insure he is well prepared to  combat any illness that he may  come in contact with.

The people most likely to  gain benefit from this deduction  are older (65 and older), retired  couples, but younger couples  can also use this deduction  provided that they have qualifying income. Stated simply,  this deduction allows you to use  that part of your spouse's deductions that hc, or she, does  not need lo reduce his or her  taxable income to zero. If your  spouse has taxable income (line  hOon their return), then you may  not claim anything using this  deduction. It is not necessary  for your spouse lo file a tax  return for you to claim a transferred deduction, but you must  include anv information slips  (T4A, T5, T4P. T600, etc.) that  your spouse received, with your  return. Here is an example of  how to use this deduction.  Jack and Rose are a married  (legally ��� not common-law) couple. Jack is 68 years old and does  not work. Hc gets the Canada  Pension ($1,900). Old Age Security Pension ($1,746), CN Pension ($900), and bond interest  (5750) for a total income of  $5,296. His total deductions and  exemptions are $5,340. Rose  works for B.C.Ferries as a pilot  and makes $34,000 a year. She  is allowed to claim $44 as an  eligible deduction transferred  from spouse. This may not  sound like a hell of a lot, but  better Rose than Ottawa.  Here is another example:  Mike and Martha arc a married  (legally - not common-law)  couple. Martha works, making  $15,000 a year. Mike stays  at home and takes care of the  children. He receives $794 a  year from a term deposit that  he has in the bank. Martha  normally claims Mike as a dependant under the Married  exemption section of her tax  return. Mike does not normally  file a tax return. When Martha  calculates her exemption for  Mike she subtracts the $794  from $2,370 thus giving her a  married exemption of $1,576  instead of the normal exemption  of $1,990.   Because Mike does  10 x 55' mobile home, fridge,  stove, washer, dryer. $5,800.  886-9137. #9  BLANKET B.C. & YUKON  CLASSIFIED ADS  REAL ESTATE  40 and 10 acre adjoining lots.
