Volume 31, Number 6,  February 7,1978  Board refuses  resignation  In an emotion-filled moment at the Public Utilities meeting  held in the Regional Board Office on Thursday, February 2,  Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon offered his resignation  if the board deemed it desirable as a result of a recent incident  which saw a worker in his department hospitalized after lc-  cciving a whiff of chlorine gas from a supposedly empty chlorine  tank.  The ineideni occurred on January 6 when Howard Blondeau  was changing tanks at the regional water reservoir behind  Selma Park. The empty tank hc was transferring felt heavy and  he opened thc valve to see if there was still pressure and got a  whiff of the deadly gas which burns lung tissues. Contradictory evidence was presented, Blondeau claiming that only  young worker Gordie Waters was with him while Works Superintendent Dixon maintained that foreman Sieg Lehman took the  injured workman to hospital.  the Compensation Inspector m-  Dixon's resignation offer came   spected the site and said that  as a result of a phone conver-   gas  masks  should  have  been  available but were not.    Dixon  testified   Ihat   thc   foreman   in  attendance had attended water  and waste  schools  for  several  years and that the injured worker  had  been  changing  the  tanks  for two years.  Chairman Morgan Thompson  said that thc matter had been  discussed with missing directors  Harrison and Gibb and they felt  resignation was not required.  Blondeau had been taken off  compensation after five days  but was not working because of  a heart condition.  The directors present agreed  that there was no need for the  Works Superintendent to resign  but stressed that the requisite  safety precautions should be  strongly and regularly communicated to workmen by the Works  Superintendent. "There is no  doubt." said Director Hoemberg, "that when you handle  something even as dangerous  as chlorine gas regularly there is  a tendency to become sloppy  about it and this must not be  allowed to happen,"  I.'   '  sation he had with a local newspaper reporter in which he  erroneously said that there was  a gas mask inside the storage  shed in the reservoir compound.  "I regret my statement to the  press," said Dixon. "If the board  feels that they have no confidence  in mc 1 am prepared to resign."  Some concern was expressed  by directors that although the incident had occurred on Friday,  January b, the matter had not  been mentioned at the Public  Utilities Commission meeting  held on January II. Committee  Chairman Morgan Thompson  said that he had been fully informed by Ihe Works Superintendent about the accident but  had deemed discussion of it  would be more usefully held after  thc receipt of the report from the  Worker's Compensation Board,  which has been subsequently  received. The committee chairman's explanation satisfied the  directors.  The Works Superintendent,  who was in Vancouver at thc  lime of the accident, said that  Regional Works .Superintendent Gordon Dixon  is pensive til a meeting recently when the accidental gassing of a regional workman occurred.  Secretary-Treasurer Anne Pressley is attentive  In the background.  This is one of three trucks hauling crushed auto  bodies off Ihe Sunshine Coasl these days. The  crushed auto bodies arc being crushed, loaded,  and hauled from Glen Krause's K&F. Towing in  roberts Creek.   Each truck hauls away approxi  mately eighteen old cars in a single load and  between 500 and 1.000 are expected lo be moved  before the operation is complete, The crushed  cars arc taken to a Tacoma smelter. The operation  is   thc  work  of  a   Nanaimo-based   firm.  Killam-Sechelt dispute heats up  A garbage dump  in Roberts Creek  A major garbage dump may be in the wind lor Roberts  Creek as a result of pressure being put on ihe Regional Board  by the Provincial Pollution Control Branch. Ihe garbage  dump would service the area ol bolh Gibsons ami Sechell  and area adjacent, and Unbelts Creek has been chosen because  of its central location,  Regional Director Harry Almond of Roberts (reek observed  somewhat dryly. "A few years ago when we were Irving lo gel  a recreational complex started Roberts Creek wasn'l central  enough. Now. suddenly, when we are talking aboul a garbage  dump we've become central."  The upgrading of ihe solid waste disposal facility will b(\  necessary because of leaching problems which are beginning  to show up in the Gibsons dump. The proposal brouglll forw aril  by Solid Wasie Disposal Committee Chairman suggested  that Area "A" retain its garbage dump while ihe projected  dump in Roberts Creek would serve ihe resl of the district.  Area "B" Director pointed out lhal Roberls ( reek was hardly  central for residents in ihe Secret Cove area and suggested  that ihe Halfmoon Bay garbage dump continue to serve as ,i  drop-off point. This suggestion was accepted.  A report from Director Bernie Mulligan lhal the Advisory  Planning Committee of Area "F" favoured incineration drew  the comment from Works Superintendent thai studies done in  thc Squamish area indicated that the cost of incinerating  garbage on Ihe Sunshine Coast at the present lime would in all  likelihood prove to be prohibitive.  It was agreed ihat the feasibility of incineration continue lo  be considered, thai Area "A" should retain ils garbage dump  as should Area "B" in Ihe form of a drop-off point, and that the  central garbage dump should be located in Roberls Creek if  such should prove acceptable lo residents of Ihat area. The firm  of Dayton and Knight will be hired to attempt to locale a suitable site in lhc Roberts Creek area.  Thc dispute between Sechelt  Council and Mr. Killam over the  site of his lumber yard, came lo  a head al the Council meeting  on Wednesday, February 1st.  Alderman Thompson opened  thc discussion by saying thai he  felt Mr. Killam had had long  enough to come up with a plan,  and it was time that thc solicitor was contacted and the lumber  Kolibas was that, in thc beginning Mr. Killam had been in a  greal hurry lo have the matter  settled and Council had gone  out of their way to accommodate  him, but something new kept  coming up and now it had  dragged on too long and Council  was being made to look like a  bunch of dummies.  Village   Clerk.   Tom    Wood.  removed from lot A.  He went on pointed out that as far back as  to say that, twice in  the past November   1st   of  last   year   a  week he had heard that someone directive had been sent from his  .n  Council  was  being  paid   to office lo Mr. Killam requesting  prolong the issue, and ihis was that he remove ihe lumber, and  what people were beginning to on December bth a letter from  think.    He felt ihat hc had put the  solicitor Mr.  Emerson  had  in loo much time for someone to offered     several     suggestions  go behind his back, and if Council  did not want lo back him on  this he would step down.  The   opinion    of   Alderman  on how this could be implemented. One of thc suggestions  was to spot zone the property  and Ihis would put Mr. Killam  over a barrel instead of Council,  For example, if lol A was zoned  indusirial then no further development could be carried out.  Mayor Nelson and Alderman  Leitncr found lhal one of the  difficulties in finding a solution  was. thai Ihis issue had already  cost too much and an alternative  should be found lo spending  more.  the outcome was that Alderman Thompson made a resolution  mat Mr. Killam must have designs and ideas available lo  Council al least two days before  the next general meeting on  February 15th otherwise Council  would take action. He asked  that it be noted in lhc records  that his motion was passed  unanimously.  Co-op's annual meeting  Sechelt Council general business  The organization for this year's  Timber Days is undergoing ils  teething pains. Sechelt Council  was informed al thc first general  meeting of this month, held last  Wednesday. To date applications have been made for booth  space, but efforts to form a committee are still lagging behind  schedule. Mr. Chrismas is  considering taking over thc  position of chairman, which is  considered by members of the  Council lo be thc essential appointment. Once a commitment  is made there Ihe rest of the  program will fall inio place. An  absentee at this year's festivities, which will be a disappointment to manv, will be the Lion's  Club Beer Gardens.  Ihe findings of a preliminary  investigation into the cost of  clearing up thc trouble spots on  Dolphin Street were outlined by  Alderman Thompson, Willi  paving,  the  installation of cul  verts and manholes plus engin  ccring studies, a figure of $15,000  was arrived al. The Village engineers Dayton and Knight will  be contacted for a more detailed  study and it was hoped that work  will begin this year.  Dick Clayton presented to  Council his plans for an extension to the western end of the  Trail Bay Mall. After looking  over the blueprints the proposal  was accepted in principle. Thc  Clerk was instructed to draw up  thc necessary by-law which would  enable Ihe project to be discussed  at a public meeting.  Dog control has cost the Village $1,450 for the past five  months, and although on paper  the figure looked high to some  of thc members, it was generally  agreed lhal Ihe benefits received  from this service outweighed  Ihe cost.

In thc report of thc board of  directors it was revealed that a  tighter competition in thc retail  food trade saw thc basic overall situation for thc long-established local store. The report  said that the establishment of the  new shopping mall in Upper Gibsons seemed lo be a direct  contributing factor as well as  a general downturn in business  everywhere. One heartening  note, however, was that thc  sales to members of the Co-op  had  reduced  only  one   quarter  the amount of the sales lo nun-  members. Sales to members  now constitute 53% of lotal  sales, lhc highest percentage  in many years.  It was also reported that the  hoped-for increase in sales as a  result of the store remodelling  which took place in 1977 was nol  realized. The remodelling included giving greater capacity  in thc fresh meat and frozen food  display area, a centralized  dry goods section, a small hardware line anil a belter check  out area, in addition lo ihe addition of Henry's Bakery breads  and pasiries. Also disappointing as yet was the response  to the new Special Order Service  whereby items could be ordered  by Co-op members at substantial  savings from F.C.L. hardware  warehouses in thc city.

It appears that in one important aspect  thc Regional Board was correct in that they had been informed  that thc subdivision in question was outside the South Pender  Harbour Waterworks District.  Under date of June 13, 1977, J.Douglas, Secretary of the  Waterworks District did in fact write the following handwritten  note: "To Whom it May Concern, This is to certify that property owned by Michael Wise is outside of the South Pender  Harbour Waterworks District and we are unable to issue it a  tax certificate."  It appears that much of the confusion arose because the  Secretary was in error in the June 13 letter. A long-time  resident of Pender Harbour told the Coast News after the  meeting held Thursday, February 2, that the South Pender  Harbour Waterworks District had been taxing the Wise property for years. "He must have been thinking of another piece of  property," said the Pender man.  In view of this error and thc controversy it had raised. Water  Committee Chairman Bernie Mulligan of Area "F" recommended after a review of the minutes that the Regional District withdraw from any supply of water to Pender Harbour  Secondary School unless the request should come in writing  from the Pender Harbour Advisory Planning Committee and thc  regional director. Under a Regional Board by-law it is specified that any water installed must become part of the regional  district  The matter was brought to light by Alternate Director Vera  McCallister of Pender Harbour who said that there was no  record cf the misleading letter on file with the Pender Harbour  Waterworks District and it could not be regarded as an official letter. She requested that Works Superintendent Gordon  Dixon notify the engineers involved as well as School District  #46 that the Regional Board will not be supplying water in the  Pender Hrbour area without "input from residents of Area  '���A".  At this point Water Chairman Mulligan made his recommendation and the Board passed it unanimously, though Director Hoemberg of Area "B" did express some reservations about  future problems which might arise.

First of all we hear that chronically  ill patients in acute care hospitals may  find themselves paying their own bills  which may come to as much as $165  per day. Well now we must congratulate  our government as it takes its battle  lor economy fearlessly into the wards ol  the chronically ill. this the government  who rushed lo lake the inheritance tax  off millionaires at an estimated cost to  the province of $40 million a year.  The priorities are notable. Instant  generous relief provided for the extremely wealthy while grinding economic pres  sure is brought to hear on the poor and  Ihe ill. Meanwhile Alan Folheiinghani  tells us that Grinning Gracic has overspent her Tourist Department budget  by one million dollars.  Do you remember Ihe howls of Socred  rage that went up when Norman Levi  overspent his welfare budget to the same  extent. What lofty scornful diatribes  about N.D.P. incompetence. The N.D.P.  erred on Ihe side of generosity towards  the unfortunate. The Socreds too en  on the side of generosity but it is towards  themselves.  As things stand at the moment this  would appear to be a government which  is about equally deficient in both competency and compassionate humanity.  power.  A conversation with a local business  man recently revealed that his Hydro  bill at this lime last year came to $.181  per month, this year it is S(>I8 per monlh  and he's jusl been told ihat another  20"- increase is on ils way with still  more in lhc offing.  It's just pennies a day. we are told,  but il has been observed thai the trouble  is that there are three hundred and  sixty five of them in a year. If there is  any one out there who feels that the  opposition that B.C.Hydro is running  into as it advances grandiose plans  involving ever more provincial debt  all over thc province has been somewhat  overstated, wc invite such a person to  take a long hard look at his or her Hydro  bill,  And has anyone heard any definite  figures about what the really big boys,  thc industrial users, will be paying now?  Until their Hydro rates are so priced  as to encourage them to conserve energy  or utilize waste products the basic  problem besetting the energy picture  in this province will not be resolved. Of  course, when you realize that it is precisely from those sources that this  government hopes lo raise the millions  of dollars it will spend in a bid to retain  power at the next election then one would  he safe to assume that nothing terribly  unpleasant will happen to them under  this government.  paranoia...  Maybe it's time that we started be-  'Jiaving with jusl a little less suspicion  towards each oilier here on the Sunshine  Coast. The thought conies to mind  because of three recent incidents. First  wc had the en masse attendance of the  Gibsons Council at Ihe Regional Board  apparently to declare war if the Regional  Board did not move towards a rezoning  which would allow them to build their  water tower. The heat went out of the  issue when the Regional Board immediately moved to do so and the whole  altitude of Gibsons Council suddenly  seemed jusl a wee bit silly.  Then there was Ihe dreadful case of  the conspiracy to infiltrate Pender Harbour with water. Both sides growled  their indignation and suspicion and then,  as is so often the case, the whole issue  came down to a simple matter of a  mistake made in innocence and again  the issue dissolved.  And finally in the ease of the workman  injured by chlorine gas there were  regional directors breathing fire because  they suspected cover up. It took Public  Utilities Committee Chairman Morgan  Thompson all of thirty seconds to present  an explanation which was entirely  reasonable and satisfied all that no  skullduggery was afoot.  We applaud the vigilance of electors  and the elected alike for honesty and  fair dealings, but sometimes it seems  that Ihe suspicions harboured or ready  to spring into being about our friends  and neighbours on the Sunshine Coast  have just a tinge of paranoia to them.  And paranoia wc do not need.  and plain stupidity  One would like to congratulate and to  express fellow feeling with those voices  Ihat arc being raised against the mindless  crossness which has been bruled against  Gospel Rock. (Juile simply that corner  is one of Ihe most seenically thrilling  in all weathers on Ihe coast and how  anyone with an  ounce  of  intelligence  could propose to turn it into a speedway, ostensibly in the name of safely  just defies understanding.  Leave Gospel Rock alone. If there are  needed corrections in the road's line -  and those nol al the Rock - for heaven's  sake make them minimally and leave  Ihe rest of it alone.  .from the files of Coast New  |J*      a 1.3* .

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  A couple of weeks ago I allowed  myself an expression ot disappointment about the state of the  Canadian society. It was written  in a bleaker mood than I generally  allow myself and with less optimism than usually buoys mc  along. This is not to say that I  withdraw thc remarks for I am  truly saddened and troubled  about the course we seem to be  ���on.  What was especially interesting and rewarding was the reaction that I received from Canadian  born friends. Several in the days  that followed the, column spoke  to me about it. They, too, felt  that somewhere in the last two  decades we hail gone off course  slightly. I was touched by the  sincerity and thotightfulness  of their concern and by the  tolerance and dignity with which  the\ addressed themselves to  criticism of their homeland, or  rather ot its people.  In particular. I was impressed  by a letter which came in from a  Canadian-bom resident of Sechelt  which was not intended lor publication. I have since obtained  permission to share it with  readers . of Ihe Coast News,  though at thc writer's request  Ilk name is being witheld. I  particularly, draw attention to it  on Page .lot this paper.  It is quite correctly pointed  out in that letter that the malaise  is a malaise which does not affect  Canada alone, bul seems to afflict much ot western society.  I was particularly taken with the  phrase "gimme pigs" which the  writer uses to characterize an  attitude which seems to be  prevalent.  The late President Kennedy  during his brief and tragic president was notable for the grace  with which he used the language  and left us with many verbal  moments: among them hc urged  the American people and perhaps  b\ extension the people of (he  western world "Ask not what  your country can do lor you;  ask what you can do for your  eotintn." It pointed in thc direction of selflessness, of an ideal  higher than one's own immediate  and selfish interests. It has been  sadly ignored.  Now I am no economist. In  fact. I find myself largely in  agreement with George Bernard  Shaw who said that if all the  economists in the world were  stretched end to end they still  would not reach a conclusion,  hut there seems to be a lack of  clarity in the historical perspective that conventional wisdom has of economic history  that may he a contributing  factor in the malaise aforementioned.  Specifically it seems to me that  Western thought has become  muddied by a confusion of  three important aspects, the  political, the spiritual, and thc  economic. It has become accepted that the three are one, an  unholy trinity. Thus we have the  assumption that you can't be  a Christ in n or a democrat if  you  arc   not   also  a  capitalist.  Let's take a historic look at thc  free enterprise or Capitalist  system.  It was a Scotsman called  Adam Smith who first produced  a book several hundred years  ago which was called The Wealth  of Nations and advocated first a  "free enterprise" system. His  ideas took hold and the consequent growth and energy of the  economic system which they  produced revolutionized the  Western World and put it in  a position of economic ascend-  attcv which it lias maintained  ever since. Now it is important  lo realized the historical perspective of that historic book.  It was produced in thc 17()0's  in a Europe which was still  feudal. Kings enjoyed absolute  power and it was their custom  to award economic monopolies  to Court favourites. The inertia  and corruption that this monopolistic approach was strangling  the economic life of Europe.  Smith advocated less government  intervention. Lei the business  men have the freedom to compete. He was right. The energy  explosion which took place is  only now beginning to wind  down, and it is winding down  because the era of real competition has ended. Thc bigger  conglomerates now control  virtually everything. There  are in North America generations of people whit have controlled their society. The power  and thc wealth are concentrated  in very few hands. Wc have a  situation again not unlike Smith's  day where monopoly with all  its attendant inefficiency is again  Ihe norm in Western society.  Now the pendulum has swung  back the other way entirely.  Thc people at the top who are  advocating free enterprise and  equating it with Christianity  and democracy are now in fact  the monopolists and they have no  intention of letting go their grip  on their privileged position.  Quite simply if Abe Lincoln  had been alive in the 20th Century he would not have a chance  of winning even consideration  for thc nomination for the presidency of his country. He would  have to have a personal fortune  and powerful backers with more  wealth than thc world has ever  known to have the opportunity  to lead.  The profit motive which has  served so well in liberating the  creative powers of mankind must  now be supplemented with something else if human society  is to continue. Wc in thc western  world have enjoyed a standard  of living vastly in excess of the  rest of the world because of those  centuries-old ideas of Adam  Smith and the technological  revolution that they wrought.  It has been increasingly apparent  that that standard of living  has been possible only at the  expense and through the exploitation of thc rest of mankind. If thc profit motive remains  entrenched in ils position as the  only factor seen that can motivate man then disaster is a sure  result.  And as the lady from Sechelt  points out so succinctly il is already failing us. It has produced  a society of "gimme pigs"  who want as much for themselves  as ihcy can get while giving  as little as possible in return.  I am grateful to her for pointing  out to mc thai my lamentations about Canadians is in fact  a lamentation about thc spiritual  torpor and cyiiicts'm which bedevils all thc countries of thc  western world.  It is common to blame the  working man and his trade unions  for those ills but they reflect  the prevailing greed and cynicism of our societies. The competitive and acquisitive energies Ihat Adam Smith's ideas  liberated and which led to a  great leap forward in the quality  of life possible on earth are now  outworn. Competition at lhc top  level of society is now a myth.  We arc as monopolistic now  as the feudal society he sought  to free us from. The power in  the western world is now in  fewer hands than it was in post-  feudal Europe and lhc acquisitive energies which served us so  well are in danger of rending  thc whole social fabric of mankind  irreparably apart.  1 don't know what the answer  is bul feel that thc ancient virtues  of honour and truth and service  lo others must be resurrected  and placed in the balance scale  of survival if our species is lo  survive, If we continue to insist on being "gimme pigs"  through ihe end of thc century  we ma\ not outlast it.   The strange and unfortunate  case of Solicitor-General Pox  has been discussed to its point  of maximum tedium. The facts  of the indiscretion of signing an  abortion authorization with (he  wrong name; thc moral and ethical issues involved in a lawyer  participating in a legal subtrefuge  have all been detailed. The case  itself is neither unique nor particularly interesting except for  the fact thai it led to Ihe destruction of what could have been a  brilliant political career.  Although the facts ate anything  but bi/arre or startling, they do  shed light on some fascinating  side issues which, as yet. have  not been profitably explored.  These side issues are much more  worthy of speculation than thc  fact that Fox and the even more  unfortunate lady in question had  tii learn not to fool with Mother  Nature Ihe hard way.  The first thing that occurs is  whether or not Mr. Fox was  "set up". After all. it was he  who had been making revelations  about thc RCMP which were  becoming an acute embarrassment to thc government. He had  been asked to testify in person  at thc hearings being held on  alleged RCMP illegal activities.  If he were no longer Solicitor-  General he would not be obliged  to testify. If he resigned on his  own "for personal reasons",  the charge of "cover-up" would  surely have been raised, causing  the government further embarrassment. After all, if the government was popular and the RCMP  was squeaky clean, such a revelation would have been nothing  more than a humble admission  of the truth, a promise never  to do it again and a "let's get on  with it". Fox would have blushed  bricflv, taken two weeks in the  Bahamas and been back at his  cabinet post with little more  than a few titters in the parliament cocktail lounge.  Under Ihe circumstances however; an unpopular government.  RCMP disclosures, and an Impending election; consider these  two scenarios: Thc first sees  the RCMP harrassed by three  separate official probes, and not  wanting another single revelation  lo stain its virginal integrity,  investigating Mr. Fox for any-  possible past incidents which  might be used to encourage him  to keep his mouth shut. ' After  exhaustive investigation, they  discover one minor flaw in an  otherwise impeccable career. Is  il enough io keep him off the  stand? "1 dunno," replys  Sargeanl Preston, "but let's  send this annonvmous note to  thc P.M. and see what happens,"  The second possibility is something like this: The Prime  Minister, wanting no further  revelations about RCMP activities, asks Mr. Fox to cool it.  Mr. Fox indicates that if he is  asked to testify he will have to  be candid with the investigators.  Mr, Trudeau asks the RCMP to  find something on Mr. Fox; or  perhaps he knows something  himself. When the facts are  discovered. Mr. Fox is asked to  resign, not for embarrassing the  government by bedding down  with a married woman (one would  expect a mass evacuation from  Ottawa if this were considered  politically sinful) but for faking  the lady's husband's signature.  One would hope that Mr. Fox's  reply under such circumstances  would have been, "Are you  kidding?" but I'm sure the  threat of legal action for possible  forgery woidd have been enough  The Legend of St. Valentine  with .hi opptcssive  UMS I /iNliflHs 11    tin  tin- >Miy of r..,fFifm.'s Day begins m lh? ihlhl uillHi  Roman emperor icii/ j humble Chtistian muttyt Hi,- t'liifcio  Christian ii'ii;.

Perhaps il is. bul over Ihe past  five or six years most of us have  learned nol to underestimate  the banality of the truth about  politics.  Ihe other bil of idle speculation which is interesting is the  irony involved in a Solicitor-  General attempting to gel around  a law which he is obliged to  enforce even (hough hc probably  doesn't agree with il. Thc legal  requirement in question is the  controversial fact thai a woman  must ask her husband's permission for an abortion. There is  a sizeable segment of citizenry  who believe this law denys a  woman control over her own  body. It's a topic of sonic complexity and I for one am inclined  lo believe Ihat the law is an  affront to personal freedom.

Statistics from the U.S. tell us  that those towns which have  chlorinated water have 40% more  cancer than those towns which  don't have their water treated.  One of the ominous symptoms  of cancer is a low red blood  corpuscle count. That is to say  one's body is short of iron. So  with the prospect of more chlori-  nation in our water we should at  least be sure to have a good iron  supply in our diet.  So we will turn now to a current  newspaper item headed   "Nutrition Notes".  It'asks this question, "What foods besides liver  and kidney are good sources of  iron?"   The answer, "Excellent  sources of iron include Cream of I  Wheat, walnuts, almonds, bran, I  dried beans, raisins and prune I  juice."  The stated ingredients on a  package of Cream of Wheat are  wheat, tricalcium phosphate,  disodium phosphate, sugar,  ferric orthophosphate, mono-  sodium phosphate, giving the  proportion of iron in the iron  phosphate.  ActualK the richest source of  iron in a form that the body  can readily assimilate is sorrel  or sourgrass. In descending  richness the following foods can  supply iron: sorrel, chickweed,  nettles, spinach, lettuce, leeks,  onions, radishes, strawberries,  broccoli, mushrooms and watermelons. There is vegetable iron  in all dark green leaves. However  the spectro-analysis shows that  there is much more in the white  root of leek than in its green  leaves. There is iron in almost  all foods except white flour,  but if a person needs to build  up his iron supply he must either  drink blood or eat the above  mentioned items. Liver might  help if eaten practically raw.  Dead flesh is useless. Iron in  the foetus is so essential to health  that the mother stores it in the  unborn's liver since it wouldn't  be safe enough to provide it in  the mother's milk. Man is the  only mammal who drinks milk  after he is weaned. There is a  little iron in milk depending on  the particular cow's diet, but  milk as a food is suspect. You  may recall a cancer doctor Hall  who came out flat-footed and said  so. He was promptly fired.  Alex Simpkins  DON'T MISS THE  MICRO-WAVE  DEMONSTRATION  SAT.

At the ultimate extreme (one has only to  think   of   Mario   Lanza,   Janis  Joplin,   Jim   Morrison   or   HI vis  Presley) it can lead to the performer's early death.   So it may  well be healthier in the long run  lo inhabit the middleforeground,  content with the sort of modest  success thai could prove infinitely  more valid in the long run.  I or the past year or so, 1 have  become vicariouslj involved with  the career ol just such a performer by the name of Tom  Waits, Hc seems to me, the  epitome of thc middleforeground  artist, more concerned with remaining true to his code than  making the Mil Parade. I could  be dead wrong on this (Waits  once declared to an interviewer  lhal hc would love to have a hit  record) but after five albums in  which the content remains determinedly "iii of the main-stream,  I can onK conclude that he must  have been kidding. Waits is a  sheet poel who sings the truth  abnul what he hears and sees.  Since hc frequently couches this  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  N.D.P. BOOKSTORE  Next to Sears  Gibsons Harbour area  Try uslorgoodbo^ks  truth in the blunt language of the  gutter, it is difficult to imagine  him ever breaking through into  the superstar bracket, To compound thc felony of his raunchy  lyrics, Waits is essentially a  jazz -performer and has little in  common with the average practitioner of rock and roll, apart  from a common blues influence.  Add to this, the fact that he  dresses like someone who just  stumbled out of an early Fifties  flophouse with a thirst for booze  too obsessively dwelt-upon to be  assumed and you have the very  antithesis of Donny Osmond. Hc  almost makes Mick Jagger look  clean-cut.  So a hy waste so much time and  space on such a grungy fellow,  you may well ask? In part because 1 have experienced firsthand many of the rockbottoni  situations he sings about in his  songs. But mainly because Tom  Waits is a remarkable performer  and a formidable wordslinger to  boot. Despite his outrageous  persona, he has made appearances on most of the top TV talk  shows. One of the most amazing  encounters I have ever witnessed  on the tube was between Waits  and William l;. Buckley on (so  help me Godl) the Dinah Shore  program. The popeyed apostle  of the right-wing seemed literally  hypnotized by this apparition  from the lower-depths. Waits  slouched chain-smoking in his  chair, seemingly three-quarters  smashed and quite oblivious  to his up town surroundings.  Buckley, probably deluded into  thinking he had an easy victim,  began to toss questions in his  polysyllabic style. Waits, who  conceals a mind like a stfrcl-lrap  behind his loosc-as-a-goose  facade, topped his every sally.  Buckely finally sank back in confusion as Waits, nodding sagely,  tired-up another cigarette.  Sweet, ageless Dinah just sat  dumbfounded in the middle as  though she couldn't believe any  of this was really happening.  One of Waits' close pals in  real life is the singer-comedian  Martin   Mull,   who   hosts   the  murderously-til nny Fernwood 2  Night show. This program, a  Man Hartman spinoff is a no-  holds-barred satire on such pro-  rums as the aforementioned  Dinah Shore Show (which often  inadvertently, come off like  satires themselves). Thc format  consists ol running Midi (a damnably amusing and talented fellow)  and his dimwitted, equally-  hilarious announcer, Jerry Hubbard, up against thc most-unlikely collection of fictitious  guests that ever was. One  evening. I was amazed to sec  Waits amble into view. He is  the only "real" guest to ever play  the show. He sang one of his  more-bizarre tunes called The  Piano Has Been Drinking and  needless to say, fitted in perfectly.  The lasl lime I caught Tom  Waits on the box was a few weeks  back when he appeared on  C.B.CVs 90 Minutes Live. Hc  was in his usual excellent and  (feigned or otherwise) semi-  inebriated form. He had traded  in his scrofulous newsboy's cap  tor a stingy-brim bowler but  apart from that, it was business  as usual. He did a couple of  songs including one from his new  album and later traded a few-  words with a perplexed Peter  Gzowski.  I had heard vague rumours to  the effect that Waits had a new  album coming out but this was  the first definite confirmation.  It is entitled Foreign Affairs  and like his four earlier records,  it contains some dazzling tracks.  One of the besl is a laid-back  duet with none other than Bette  Midler, no stranger to raunchv  music and sally dialogue herself.  The song, a clever set-piece  called I Never Talk To Strangers  deals with Waits' efforts to pick  up Midler in a bar. She weaves  her polished jazz-singer's voice  around his whiskey growl to  great and oddly-moving effect.  (Wails has written on the album-  sleeve "Bette, you're colossal!" -  They both arc.)  The album contains eight songs  and one instrumental.   Ihcy arc  all at least good and several  are downright excellent. In the  latter category I would place  along with thc already mentioned  Strangers, a bittersweet ballad  called Muriel: a tour-de-force  entitled Polter's Field in which  Waits returns to his brutal  strectworld of switch-blades and  sudden death and a powerful,  unusual tune called Burma Shave  about a cowboy and a girl hitchhiker who come to a sad end.  But my favourite piece on the  alumn is a wild, swinging road-  rap called Jack and Neal. In  this romping excursion, Waits  pays direct tribute to those Beat  Generation heroes, Jack Kerouac  and Neal Cassady, Waits has  never made any secret of his  admiration for Kcrouac's tumbling spontaneous prose. Here he  gets right down to cases, turns  back the clock to thc late Forties  and takes you on an imaginary  cross-country jaunt with visionary  Jack and his wild-driving sidekick. Waits chants his swinging,  earthy lyrics to thc sort of booting  saxophone solo that Kerouac  often described rapturously in  his novels. The language in  parts, is definitely not for your  little old maiden-aunt's front  parlour but it is gritty and loose  and it all works until you're  trucking right on along that highway with them. Waits closes  thc song cleverly with a few  impromptu bars of California  Here 1 Come that leaves them  dusting off into the distance.  Wherever Jack and Neal may be  on the Ultimate Road in thc sky,  I'm sure they would delightfully  approve.  So that's the state of Mr.  Waits. His voice, shockingly-  wasted (though effective) on his  previous album Small Change,  sounds in much healthier-form  here, the jazz-hacking, spotting  such luminaries as Shelley Manne  and Jack Sheldon, is. as always,  excellent. It isn't likely to sell  a million-copies but it should  keep Waits in beer and smokes  for awhile.  latest word has it that Waits  has been signed hy Sylvester  Stallone for bis new film. Paradise Alley, now under production  in New York. He plays a barfly  called Mumbles. Sounds like  ideal easting and I await bis  acting debut with interest.  Fantasy-adventure and action  comedy form the bill of fare at  thc Twilight Theatre next week.  The former attraction is Sinbad  and thc Eye of the Tiger and it  will play at thc local cinema  Thursday through Saturday.  February 9 - 11.  This represents the third Sin-  bad film produced in recent  years. Both of ils predecessors  were highly popular and successful at the box office. Sinbad  and the Eye of the Tiger bids  fair to be equally popular. It  was filmed in England and in  Spain and Malta and casts John  Wayne's son Patrick and Tyrone  Power's daughter Tarvn in the  leads along with Jane Seymour  and Margaret Whiting.

The film, made in Florida, has  two bright slars and lots of bawdy  humour to keep il moving.  Dave C'arradine gives a convincing portrayal and succeeds in  making his many escapes tongue  in check. Co-starring with C'arradine is Kale Jackson of Charlie's Angels and there is considerably more of her on display  than  is  Ihe case on   T.V,  All about Bridge  hv Jim Weir  "Do you play the short club?"  is a question often asked of me  while sitting down at the bridge  table with a new partner. "No"  is my regular reply. Actually I  do play the short club but certainly not the Sechelt Peninsula  version. The local version goes  something like this: A one club  opening bid is artificial saying  nothing about lhc club suit and  forces partner to respond. Partner makes a natural response  unless that natural response is  ID. in which case he indicates  this wilh the artificial bid of 2D.  II partners natural response was  to pass he indicates this with an  artificial bid of 11). If the opening  bidder's natural bid was IC hc  indicates Ihis by rcbidding clubs  regardless of the level. What  many fail to consider when  adopting artificial bids is what  is lost by denying themselves  ihe use of these bids in a natural  sense. For example, in a recent  game one of my opponents  opened IC holding SK.12 HK32  D32 AK-t.12. His partner holding  S054 H7(,5-l DAQ654 C5 bid 2D  indicating a natural response of  ID. The opening bidder then  identified his club suit by bidding  3C. From there Ihe bidding  floundered into .INT which was  sei by two nicks. By using  these artificial bids my opponents  had denied themselves the use of  the natural sequence. IC - ID -  INI - all pass. This is only one  example of those too numerous  to mention here in which the  short club lands the partnership  in the wrong contract. Clearly  thc 2D rcsonse advances the  bidding    loo   quickly    severely  reducing lhc chances of arriving  a( the correct pari score contract.  For this reason many local  players have abandoned thc 2D  response in favour of an artificial  and meaningless ID. This is  even worse. Since the respondcr  could have a valueless band,  the opening bidder can no longer  make the natural rcbids that are  based on a guarantee of six  points from partner. Especially  with strong hands, the opening  bidder's second bid is reduced  to guess work.  In standard North American  bidding lhc opening bidder's  responsibility is lo impart information about his hand while the  responder's responsibility is to  use this information to steer thc  bidding to the best contract. An  asking IC opening bid reverses  this order resulting in the loss of  all precision.   In my experience  I have never witnessed the use of  a forcing short club other than  on this peninsula where it is  used extensively. There is no  bridge book that advocates it's  use yet local players discuss it  as though it has credibility.  Do nol confuse thc forcing short  club with the forcing one club  opening bid used in some highly  sophisticated artificial systems.  Even in these systems the one  club bid imparts very specific  information unlike the local invention.  Ihe short club used properly  is an opening bid in a good three  card minor suit rather than a four  card major suit for the purpose  of overcoming  rebid  problems.

February 7. 1978  It's February again, that time  of the year when everyone 1 know  is either out of work or needs to  see a dentist, or both. Those  who aren't unemployed or ridden  with faulty molars are having  trouble wilh their used cars.  The winter wearies. Because,  after all, what can you say about  February'.' It's the month for  groundhog day, and if you're  American, it's also the month for  Geo. Washington's birthday.  But other than that, oh, yes, ���  it's Valentine's Day this month.  Well, there's something positive  to say about February. Valentine's Day. In Ihe midst of fog,  ruin, snow and political scandals  involving those zany, devil-may-  care Liberals, we may yet rummage through the overcoat  pockets of our dreams and come  up with thc battered yo-yo of  romance one more time.  This is going to be one of those  count -your-blessings columns,  and in il I'm going to trot out a  couple of my sweethearts for  Valentine's Day. Not any of my  real, actual, live sweethearts,  several of which are scattered  around the landscape, and who,  I hope, will spare me a tender  thought on Valentine's Day. but  those more consistent, continuous  amours, who buoy me up through  the visissiludes of modern living,  inspire me to go greater heights,  and rewind the armature of my  battered soul. I refer, of course,  lo thc sweethearts of thc printed  page.  I have two especial favourites  these days when it comes to the  written word. The first is Mr.  Russell Hoban, a novelist, and  in my estimation one of the best  writers of fiction in this decade.  I'm in the middle of his first  novel right now, having already  read the other two he's had  published. I realize it's close to  absurd to write a book review  column about a book 1 haven't  finished yet. But this column is  wandering around looking for  the heart of Valentine's Day.  and like all romances, the unfinished books are often the  best.  This is going to get worse when  I confess that 1 can't even remember the title of this book.  It is something like The Lion of  Jachin-Boaz and Boaz-Jachln,  and that may actually be thc  title, or it may not, but it's close  enough for the purposes of this  shoddy  review.  The hero of the thing is Jachin-  Boaz, the mapmaker in a small  village. He makes maps of  everything. There are pasture  maps, showing all the fields and  cows. There are stroller maps,  , noting all the alleys, and there  are maps for everything else  you can imagine. Maps that will  take anyone to their heart's  desire. Jachin-Boaz himself is  working on a master map, which  will be for his son, Boaz-Jachin.  One night thc son visits his  father in the shop and the old  man shows him the master map.  "But it has no lions on it" says  the son. "Everyone knows there  are no lions anymore." says the  old man. But then he begins to  wonder.  As the book proceeds the  father runs off. taking his son's  master map with him. Thc boy  runs off as well. They both head  off into the outside world looking  for the last of the lions, men  engaged in a search for the  beautiful, the elusive, the extinct.  1 like books that talk about  people engaged in near-hopeless  searches. They remind me somehow of myself. But we'll leave  Jachin-Boaz and his son to their  search and get on to my other  especial favourite when it comes  to the written word. This part  is going to be difficult to do  without getting all sentimental,  and soppy, and self-serving,  but I am going to take a crack  at it anyway because it needs to  be said.  When it comes to the printed  word, one of my recent all-time  DON'T MISS THE  MICRO-WAVE  DEMONSTRATION  SAT. FEB. 25th  AT J a C ELECTRONICS  COWRIE ST., SECHELT  885-2568  favourites is this newspaper,  the Coasl News. I never used to  read small newspapers. They  seemed, more often than not,  nothing more than a collection  of pages of Cub Scout news,  and while I hasten to say that 1  have nothing against Cub Scouts,  they don't make for widely exciting reading. This past summer  1 went into the offices of the  B. C. and Yukon Community  Newspaper Association. They  collect all the small papers  published in those places, and  thc lady in the office was kind  enough to give me copies of  them all. I took them home and  read them. 1 think I can say  with some degree of objectivity  that thc Coast News was better  than most. In fact, I'd have to  say that thc Coast News is one  of the best small papers presently  being published. The rest of  them were still into Cub Scouts.  Since I've started writing for  this paper I've been consistently  pleased with thc people who  make the thing work. Everyone  in the office here is just the  tiniest bit insane. Lindy the  typesetter, for example, has a  cow. Some months back she had  thc cow bred and she was relating the story to the editor and  myself. The editor and I were  deploring Ihe use of artificial  insemination (not liking the  general direction that sort of  thing leads to), when Lindy  said: "Oh, it's all right. We  showed the cow a picture of the  bull when we had it, done."  Everyone else in thc office is  just as nutty.  Manuanc, the vivacious French  Canadian receptionist, drives  like a demolition derby entrant,  and writes articles about male  strippers. Bruce, who seems to  do everything that no one else  is doing, has a sense of humour  that rons to extremely painful  puns and can clear a room with  a bad joke in thc same way that  some people break wind. Ian,  the dotty photographer, is a  collection of neckties and biting  wit who's recently found his  voice as a writer. "More words!  And in better sequence!" yells  Ian, battering away at his long-  suffering typewriter. That leaves  us with my fellow columnists  the misters Matthews and  Trower, whose drivelling insanity  is well documented by now.  Matthews writes about everything from his cousins to loggers,  and when he runs out of words  he starts making them up.  Trower writes about his past,  which seems to include guys who  live in barrels, guys who steal  overcoats  for  a  living,   sleazy  <KO>��  by Maryanne West  The second program of a mini-  series designed to help increase  awareness of vital developments  taking place within Canada,  Canada Watch - Who's in Charge? discusses unemployment,  Saturday, 7:05 p.m. It is of  course common knowledge that  unemployment is high and  regional disparities have been  with us since Confederation,  but some things are changing.

The Coast News. At times it  seems like the most impossible  combination of talents ever  assembled, and yet, week after  week they produce one of thc best  small newspapers in this province. I hope they continue to do  this for many years to come.  Even here, in the gloomy depths  of February, thc Coast newsies  seem to manage. And they  manage with style.

And next week hope to  bring forward some conclusions  that, if nothing else, will give  you a firmer basis for a much  less fear of death, and surely a  solid conviction that most of us  have a life to come that will  transcend anything we can  imagine now. So pardon my  many quotes, and references to  the authorities who have these  things at their fingertips.  From Beyond This Life. Doctor  Hans Holzcr, "The number of  eases involving near-death experiences, reports from people  who were clinically dead for  varying lengths of time and who  then recovered and remembered  what they had experienced while  unconscious, is considerable...  Why then are some people  allowed to glimpse that which  lies' ahead for them in the next  dimension. without actually  entering that dimension at the  time of the experience?" And  he goes on: "One factor remains  constant; though the body ceases  to live at the point of "death",  there may well be another form  of life, a Spritual Survival,  afterwards."  A Dr. Karlis Osis, the research  director of the American Society  tor Psychical research, has published his findings concerning  many deathbed experiences,  wherein the dying recognize dead  relatives in the room, seemingly  come to help them across the  threshold into the next world.  While it comes to my mind, an  immediate neighbour who I  visited often, and died about  three years ago. told me a few  months before he died that his  deceased wife came and stood  beside his bed, and appeared as  though in thc flesh and "She  was dressed as I knew her years  ago."  Now I swing to Dr. Raymond A.  Moody, and his Life Alter Life  book that records so much of  evidences of that life after death.  Here is a capsule comment that  covers so much that Dr. Moody  and others have observed. "A  man is dying and. as he reaches  the point of greatest physical  distress, he hears himself pronounced dead by his doctor.  He begins to hear an uncomfortable noise, a loud ringing or  buzzing, and at the same time  feels himself moving very rapidly  through a long dark tunnel.  After this, hc finds himself outside of his own physical body...  soon other things begin to happen. Others come to meet and  help him. He glimpses the  spirits of relatives and  friends  who have already died, and a  loving, warm spirit of a kind hc  has never encountered before -  a being of light - appears before  him."  It could be said, and has been  said by critics, that all this  could be the result of chemical  forces in the body that produce  a dream state. But. the next  report from Dr. Moody that I  will give now knocks all that  galley west.  "In several eases, persons have  related to me how they amazed  their doctors or others wilh reports of events they had witnessed while out of the body.  While she was dying, for example, one girl went out of her  body and into the other room in  the hospital where she found her  older sister crying and saying,  "Oh. Kathy. please don't die."  The older sister was quite baffled  when, later. Kathy told her  exactly where she had been and  what she had been saying, during  this time. In the two passages  that follow, similar events are  described by Kathy.  (1) "After it was all over, thc  doctor told me that 1 had a really  bad time, and I said, "Yeah,  1 know." He said. "Well, how  do you know?" and I said, "I  can tell you everything that  happened." He didn't believe  mc, so I told him the whole story,  from the time I stopped breathing  until thc time I was kind of  coming around. Hc was really  shocked to know 1 knew everything that had happened."  (2) Kathy related to her father  everything that happened from  the time she was dragged out of  thc car after the accident. Who  dragged her out. thc clothes he  wore, what he said. "Yes." her  father said. "That's all true,"  Yet. Kathy tells, "My body was  physically out this whole time,  and there was no way I could  have seen or heard these things  without being outside my body."  1 admire Dr. Moody's honest  approach to this subject and  that he says. "I am not trying to  prove there is life after death."  As a searcher myself. I have to  admit though that the experiences in the Kathy ease, particularly  where she tells of "visiting" her  sister though lying dead in  another room comes too damned  close to being conclusive evidence  in our immortality, for me to  doubt at all. These findings  have been corroborated by scientists, scholars and members of  thc clergy who have had thc  courage to investigate in this  new field of research in the hope  of helping those who need to  know, rather than to believe.

Gibsons Swimming Pool nears opening  Lorain Goddard's tenacity and  hard work is now close to bearing  the fruits of her labours. The  swimming pool in Gibsons is  close to completion and is tentatively scheduled to open on the  25th of this month.  In the initial planning stages  the flow of public opinion changed constantly as different pool  sizes and types were discussed.  Some wanted a large open air  pool which could be bubble-  covered when funds were available, while those at the other end  of the pendulum wanted a small  pool with all the modern conveniences.  The outcome of all the public  debates and cost analyses is that  Gibsons is going to have a porl.

Besides the main pool there is a  wading pond for children (or  small adults), and, what should  be a great attraction, thc hot  water whirl pool.  The cost of construction, which  was a worry to many, came to  $317,000. ihis is $13,000 under  what was estimated.  Technical details arc: the main  swimming area measures sixty  by twenty-eight feet and will  contain d2.000 gallons of water  which will completely circulate  through the filters every four  and a half hours and will be  kept at a temperature of twenty-  six       degrees       Celciusteighty  degrees Fahrenheit).

Dear Ann:  I too am concerned with  Hydro's running rough shod  over the public's desires. This  province was mentioned on TV  as one of the most beautiful  spots in the world on the Mcrv  G'iffin show. I was so pleased  and proud. I believe if lhc tourist  trade is the second biggest  industry in this province, there's  a reason for it obvious to all.  Having eyes they see not. By  raising the ferry rates they've  already hurt the Sunshine Coast.  Revenues were down for all  vacation and tourist oriented  businesses, that deprives local  people of jobs.  We will hc ruined by Hydro,  they are making us pay thc  interest on loans and selling  cheaper power than we have to  thc United States and big manufacturers. In the same action,  lousing up our tourist trade with  high wires. Anyone who's seen  Daisy Lake at Brandywine Falls,  can see how little they care for  beauty.

Turn off, tune in - fitness beckons  by Fran Bcrgcr  Pleasunl astonishment overtook me recently as I read that  for the firsl time ever, television  viewing is down. People are  mainlining fewer hours of TV  than ever before, a trend that  was totally unexpected! As a  seldom watcher myself, one  whose frustration is often hearing  about an exceptional program the  day after it was aired and so  vowing to spend more time  watching the tube, this instantly  tweaked my curiosity, and in no  time flat my eyes were glued to  our vintage black-and-white  eye to see what it is that people  are suddenly turning off.  One flip around the channels  filled mc in on thc state of evening television, which I must  admit vas quite uninspiring and  perhaps more than a little depressing. Hut my interest was  definitely captured by thc commercials. My gosh, but the ad  men must be fitness freaks,  too! Every other commercial,  either directly or by example,  was pushing nutrition and exercise -Js well as its product, and  not necessarily with a sugar  coating!  "Fitness is not just for nice  days; it's an everyday commitment," proclaimed one ardent  young lady after her jog through  the rain. - and then went on lo  rave about a shampoo she could  use every day. And of course  my favourite, the one which  brought a shock of near-recog-  Gibsons  Auxiliary  by Marie Tralnor  Despite inclement weather  twenty memhers turned out to  attend the regular monthly  meeting of the Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary on Wednesday, Feb-  wary 1st.  Ihe president. Joan Rigby,  brought the meeting to order.  Reports were heard from Chairpersons of the various committees and requests wett made  for more volunteer workers in  the hospital, particularly in thc  Physiotherapy and Extended  ( are units. Gilt Shop and Thrift  shop. Forty volunteers worked a  total of 118 hours during thc  month of Januan.  A display table was set up of  a variet> of knitted and crocheted  articles, including a baby iifghan,  sweaters, dresses, bonnets and  numerous stuffed toys. We wish  to thank Barbara Powers and  Bunny Adams for their time and  effort in producing such beautiful  work.  It is regretted that, until  further notice, the Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary Bridge Club is  cancelled indefinitely due to lack  of accommodation. However,  should suitable accommodation  be found at a later date, the  public will be notified.  Our new quarters, above Ken's  Lucky Dollar, are gradually  taking shape thanks to Ian and  Stella Morrow, who have loaned  our auxiliary a lovely cupboard  with an arborite top for storage  of our dishes etc. This addition  is a tremendous help, not only  for our storage space, but also  makes things much more convenient for the ladies making tea  and coffee.  The next meeting of the auxiliary will be held on Wednesday,  March 1st. As usual a good  turnout is expected. If you know  of a friend or neighbour who is  interested in volunteer work,  invite them to come along with  you to the next meeting.  nition to my face, showed a handsome guy, mid-thirtyish. (a school  teacher maybe?) running back  into his weekend rugby game,  and where Mom used to marvel  at her detergent turning all the  dirt and grass stains in Junior's  uniform back into dazzling white,  now it's Dad who's heading  back into the thick of it to put  those dirt-destroying enzymes  to the test! It made me smile to  sec and hear our own (Fitness  Service's) message coming across  over international airwaves, and  I'm grateful to Big Business for  the free publicity.  But while individual advertisers may feel fitness,is a cause  worthy of promotion, I'm sure  they're not giving it such a big  push just for the good of their- or  your-hcalth, They're out to  package their product in whatever  will make it sell, and as the liberation movement has convinced  them it's unacceptable to use  sexy ladies to attract Bill Buyer,  they've obviously searched out  thc next best thing. And it  seems they've discovered that  what he'll fall for after long legs  and a plunging neckline is good  health! Advertisers try to read  our minds and offer us what  they think we want, so somewhere while searching the recesses of our collective subconscious they must have caught  glimpses of gym suits, salads,  and cross-country skis!  Why should people be both  turning off their televisions and  developing an interest in exercise and their health? Has thc  "Great Entertainer" lost its  appeal? Is the "third parent"  losing its grip and no longer  able to keep its children under  control? Or is man's will to  survive forcing him to turn his  passive pursuits into active,  life-sustaining ones? Is the  animal instinct of self-preservation perhaps surfacing again  after at least two decades of  slow suffocation by vocally and  visually induced physical and  mental anaethesia?  On a biological level, taking  care of the physical well-being  of the organism is a built-in  function; the animal does it  instinctively. Humans are animals, with a mental capacity as  well as a physical one. and perhaps our bodies and minds,  knowing instinctively that we ve  fallen into a passive, sedentary, hypnotic trap in front of  our TV sets, are naturally trying  to get us active and moving  again. The urge may be coming  from within. When people feel  at a loss and don't know what  to do, if they ultimately rely on  their instincts they will probably  discover the best move to make.  aaWfja\     REAL ESTATE  *  INSURANCE  LORO  iNCIES  w  AGENCIES LTD    Box 238 1589 Marine Drive Gibsons.

Television is a powerful educator, influencing us both  obviously and by suggestion,  and one message it has constantly  bathed our brains with is that we  have choices - not only of channels and products, but of entertainments and lifestyles as well.  Perhaps to its detriment it has  shown us many things to do more  interesting than watching TV,  and particularly considering its  offerings of crime, violence, and  over-simplified situation comedies, plus the admission of some  network executives that many  programs are not up to the level  of the audience, it's no wonder  that many are bored and leaving  their armchairs to search out a  bit more of the action. "I'm mad  as hell and I'm not going to  take it anymore!", the movie  Network's motto, can be shouted  at so many frustrations that  plague modern man. and since  television rarely helps to case  those frustrations, many viewers  are responding by turning it off.  Perhaps voting with our feet is  thc best way to both follow our  instincts and become more active,  and let TV producers know they'd  better re examine thc quality  of the product they're expecting  t, - to buy.  Commented Norman Lear, father  of Mary Hartman. Maude, and  Archie Bunker. "I'd like to think  society is getting healthier.  People may begin talking to each  other again." If we allow ourselves to follow our instincts,  we just  may  prove  him right!  Nutrition  Notes  Question:  Arc weiners good for  children?  Answer: Weiners arc included  in thc Meal and Meal Alternates  group. They contain nutrients  similar to other members of thc  meat group at lower levels. One  and a half weiners. or a 3-ouncc  serving, is equivalent to 2 ounces  of lean meat, fish or poultry.  A young child may have difficulty eating thc larger portion.  Weiners are lower in iron than  most other meats. They can hc  offered occasionally bul a wide  variety of meats should he included in a child's diet. Consumer's Repori recommends that  you boil weiners 12 minutes to  kill any bacteria.  Question: Instead of three meals  a day. I am skipping lunch.  Will ihis help me lose weight?

Thc local team easily  handled North Vancouver 15-1,  15-0. Thc North Van team is  composed of players from North  Vancouver Secondary School.  The locals played for Elphinstone  teams this past school season.  The second match was a hard-  fought down out affair. The  opposition. Double Blue, is a  Vancouver team comprised of  cx-U.B.C. players and other  former high school and college  players. Double Blue won the  first game 15-10 with Gibsons  playing good defense but lacking  a consistent attack. In thc second  game Gibsons was led by the  very hard spiking captain Laura  Campbell and excellent defensive  coverage by Sigrid Peterson.  Everyone communicated well on  the court resulting in a 15-5  victory which forced a third and  deciding game. Double Blue  took an early 5-1 lead but Gibsons  picked away with good attack  and defense to finally go ahead  8-7. The five consecutive points  with Lorna Boyd serving put  Gibsons up 13-7 and they held  off a late Double Blue rally to  win 15-12.  Spirited action between the Elphinstone Senior Boys basketball team and the team from  University Hill in the recent Cougar Invitational Basketball Tournament. These two teams  met in the final and the Elphinstone lads lost a squeaker by only one point in a thrilling  game which delighted the spectators. Photo by Mark Boothroyd.

We've been hearing some outcry over B. C. Hydro's plan to  run a 500 Kv. powerline from  the mainland to Vancouver Island  via the Sunshine Coast and hopefully we'll be hearing more, because the proposal is a bona-ftde  horror.  The key issue here is not one  of forcing Hydro and the B. C.  government to give up their  expansionist philosophy for a  conservationist one. This is an  issue facing thc western world as  a whole but it is no more relevant  to the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  powerline than it is to the Rcvel-  stoke dam project or the Mae-  Gregor Diversion.  Thc key point here is that the  Sunshine Coast und the Gulf  Islands, of which Lasqueti and  Tcxada are part, are among the  most precious scenic assets this  country possesses and we should  no more be thinking of scarring  them up with powerline right-of-  ways than we should be thinking  of logging Jasper Park or damming Niagara Falls.  The powerline that is being  contemplated would involve two  rows of 90-fool steel towers in  a 400-foot herbicide-treated  right-of-way, as big as the biggest  ever seen anywhere in the  country. It would parallel the  shoreline of Salmon Inlet for  many miles, destroying that  fascinating waterway as a scenic  resource. It would march over  the highest part of the Sechelt  Peninsula, leaving a scar visible  all over Malaspina Strait. It  would span six waterways, including the busy Sechelt Inlet  flyway and Sakinaw Lake, a  popular resort area. It would  scar the hills of Nelson Island  and turn newly-created Harry  Roberts Park at Cape Cockburn  into a sick joke. It would run  half the length of Texada Island  crossing the high mountain ridge  and establishing a symbol of  industrial despoliation that will  be visible all over Georgia Strait.  Then as a crowning touch it  would cross Sabine Channel and  Bull Passage, turning one of the  most singularly spectacular Gulf  Island sights into a jumble of  steel towers and floureseent  balls before invading the pristine  rural community of Lasqueti  Island.  People come from all over thc  world to see what we have here  on the southern B. C. coast and  one can imagine visitors in the  future looking in disgust at these  puwerlines /ig-/.agging through  thc centre of the picture and  wondering how a people could  be so barbaric as to allow their  government to do Ihat.  Kven in dollar terms, if that  is the only terms our leaders  can understand, il would be a  mistake. Tourism is our third  largest industry and the area  this line would cut through the  heart is of perhaps the province's  strongest single scenic drawing  curd. Left undiminished in its  splendor, it could bring millions  of good export dollars into the  B. C. economy over the years -  and leave no empty mineshafts  or denuded hillsides behind.  Hydro's intention of sacrificing  this priceless natural resource to  save money is absurd in more  ways than one. Conservation is  one alternative but there arc  others, other more expensive or  less technically attractive routes  and other ways of generating  power on Vancouver Island.  These alternatives will be revived just as soon as public  opinion demands, so I hope all  by George Gibb  Hello to you in 1978. We have  a few things to work on now that  the directors have familiarized  themselves with one another  and with the economic aspects  of the Regional Board.  Cne of my big surprises so  far was thc chance to vote on a  proposed four-lane highway  through the back of my property  and that a do/en of my neighbours'. This was a surprise  because the last I heard of this  by-pass road, it was to follow  the power-line. If it did that for  another half mile past the starting point, we wouid not have to  nunc possibly  three  houses or  those who feel the beauty of the  coast has a value that needs to  lie recognized will waste no time  in writing thc premier in s,i> so.  divide a do/en rural properties  with a four-lane highway.  Now. contrary to popular belief. I shall not lay my body in  front of a D-8 cat. but when a  decision regarding a four-lane  highway goes to a vote without  the affected residents hearing  about it. something is wrong.  It is this type of policy-making  that makes people lie down in  front of bulldozers.  We are approaching a decision  on a garbage site and it appears  that a single site between Sechelt  and Gibsons is a first choice.  The reason we are looking for  a new site is that the provincial  Pollution Control Board is breathing down our necks. Although  thc Gibsons dump has a few  years left, a leaching problem  will   probably   exist   before   its  use is discontinued. Ihis could  then be a very costly item io  correct, lhc new dump would  replace thc ones in Halfmoon  Bay.

Most of the States have banned  the use.  It was read in one report from  the States that the archery manufacturer involved is a very prominent hunter-conservationist.  It would seem he has his priorities  confused.  It is a hunters' responsibility  to the animal he is hunting to  dispatch it as quickly and humanely as possible, whether it  be with crossbow, bow or gun.  The ramifications of this drug  arc absolutely horrifying, especially when you consider the number of untrained hunters let loose  every year. (Our association  presently will be submitting a  bow hunter training course to  the Wildlife Branch.)  If you have one of these instruments on a bolt or arrow and  you just happen by chance to  injure yourself or hunting partner  anywhere on the body and the  process is irreversible if you are  not a trained physician and even  then it is understood to be touch  and go. One of thc most important things of all we must consider is its proximity to the  children of hunters.  The chances of a novice hunter  using this device and taking down  an animal and killing is humanely  are minimal. This drug causes  an animal to collapse because  paralysis which sets in henceforth causing the nerve endings  to the motor muscles to be paralyzed, but the brain is still  sending messages and the animal  is still fully conscious. Our  novice hunter then sees the  animal is not moving. He then  begins to field dress this animal  and it is still fully concious.  It states in the British Columbia  Hunting Synopsis poison will  not be used to take wildlife.  In this form Succinylcholinc  Chloride is not classified as a  poison, but as a neuromuscular  blocking agent, which is a drug.  With regards to the anti-  hunters, We are hunters and  hope that we are fair sports-  persons and strict conservationists, but we cannot under any  circumstances have anything to  do with this diabolical drug or  its inventor's products.  If requested we will name  names, but what we will say is  he is a very prominent bow-  manufacturer in the United  States.  We would like lo thank Mr.  Corrancc for his assistance to  others through his original article  in Wildlife Corner.  Chcryle-Ann E.

In most cases  thc individuals involved face  Minn son ot strain on their  finances that other people with  tin sam iKomes do not, Fortunately, 0 'awa has given these  people sonic tax allowances that  an help loease their burden,  I hc lirsi of these is the equivalent i'�� married exemption. In  "iiiri in claim it. you must be  unmarried or separated from your  spouse, and you must support  an individual who lives with you  in a self-contained "domestic  < slablishnicnt" maintained by  on. This exemption is available regardless of the age of the  person. If you meet all of the  requirements, you can claim an  exemption lhal is identical to  ihat which you would receive for  a spouse. This year that amount  is 51990. To make this exemption  .������nit must fill out Schedule 6 in  ,onr income tax package. If  Mil are claiming one of your  children, claim the youngest.  II one of your parents is living  with you, you should be able to  i lann them under this deduction,  Ihe second area that concerns  single parents is that of alimony  mid maintenance payments. In  general, the person receiving a  payment must report that payment as income, and the person  paying it can deduct it from their  gross income. Again. Ottawa  has specific rules governing this  upc of transfer: I) Payments  ��� nst he made according to a  ���i order or it written separa-  :inn agreement  signed by both  parties. 2) The spouses must  be living apart and must remain  so for thc entire year. 3) Payments must be periodic, that is,  weekly, monthly, or quarterly,  and they must be for the maintenance and support of thc spouse  or children. 4) Payments must  be made to a spouse or to a third  party on behalf of the spouse  (as in the case of mortgage payments made directly to the bank).  Thc third area of importance  to the single parent is that of  child care expenses. This deduction generally applies to  mothers but there are situations  in which a father can claim for  it. If you are a mother (married  or single) you will be eligible to  deduct child care expenses if  they are for a child under 14 for  whom you have custody, and if  you are employed, self-employed,  taking a Manpower course or  doing research under a grant.  The child care payments must be  made either lo a sitter, who is  not one of your dependents,  or a relative under 21. or to an  organization such as a day care  centre. You may deduct the  actual amounts paid up to a maximum of $1,000 per child per  year, or a total maximum figure  of $4,000 per family. This  amount or two-thirds of your  earned income, which ever is  less, is the maximum deduction  allowable, The rules for a father  add two criteria to those for a  mother: Firsl. he must be single,  widowed, divorced or separated  by written agreement or court  order, and he must have custody  of the children: Second, in thc  case of a married lather, whose  wife is in hospital or an institution  lor more than two weeks, he may  claim up to $,10 per child per  week for each week that the  mother is gone, with a maximum  figure of $120 (four children)  per week. Remember, any claim  for child care expenses must be  validated by receipts and the  social insurance number of the  person paid to care for the  children, and you must complete  Schedule 5 of your income tax  form.  One general statement concerning Family Allowance Payments. If you are claiming any  child as a dependent, or for an  equivalent to married exemption,  you must include thc Family  Allowance Payments for that  child in your income, even if  someone else actually got the  money. And, you must attach  a copy of the TFA-I slip to your  return.  There are special tax treatments for individuals and their  dependents in ihe year in which a  marital status is changed. If  your spouse died, there is a  potential double deduction for  dependent children, and a requirement that you, or your  representative, file a deceased  return for your spouse. If you  are in this situation you should  consult a tax office or get a copy  of thc Supplementary Guide ���  Tl Income Tax Returns for Deceased Persons - 1977. If you  became separated or divorced  in 1977. there is a potential for  a double reduction for the children, provided neither of the  parents claim an equivalent to  married exemption for any given  child. If this exemption is taken,  then the other parent may not  claim anything for that child.  If a double deduction is taken,  the Family Allowance Payment  must be apportioned between  both parents. Also, where a  father receives custody of a child,  it is possible that both parents  could claim for child care expenses. In years subsequent to  death, separation, or divorce, the  tax situation of the remaining  individual with children will  stabli/c to a Child Care expenses  deduction and an Equivalent to  Married Kxemption for one of  the children.  While the Canadian legal  system reeogni/es common-law  marriage, the tax department  does not. There is however, one  regulation that people in this  situation should be aware of.  The "tax" definition of dependent is that the person be "wholly  dependent on you for support,  and that he, or she. be related  to you by blood, marriage or  adoption, whether legal or in  fact." Thus, either spouse in a  common-law marriage can claim  the children as dependents, and  he, or she, may claim an equivalent to married exemption for  one of thc children. You can not  claim your common-law spouse  as a dependent, nor can there be  more than one claim for an  equivalent to married exemption  in your household.  One last area that should be  discussed is the tax consequences  of alimony and child support  payments. If you are receiving  payments, they are added to  your taxable income, and subsequently your tax bill is increased. To avoid an unpleasant  shock at thc end of thc year,  you can either save some of the  payment in an account for tax  purposes, or ask the DNR to  increase the with-holding tax  amount of your pay cheque.  If on thc other hand, you are  making a payment to someone,  your taxable income is reduced,  thus reducing the amount you  owe Ottawa. If the DNR is not  aware of this, your employer  will continue to withhold a larger  than necessary amount of your  income. In effect, you are giving  Ottawa an interest free loan  on these funds, to correct this  you should contact the local  District Taxation Office (in Vancouver for the Sunshine Coast���  and ask them to reduce thc  amount your employer is deducting from yitiir pay cheque.
