The story, on page one of  last week's Coast News, dealt with a  School. Board Management Committee  motion to transfer the Pender Harbour  Principal to a teaching assignment at  Secheit Elementary School as well as  a number of other motions meant to  facilitate this transfer.  In reaction to our story and a well  written item in another paper in Seehelt,  School Board Secretary-Treasurer  Roy Mills wrote critical letters (see letters  to Editor) to both papers condemning  us for what apparently amounted to  unsportsmanlike conduct.  Mr. Mills' comments, well taken we  might add, related to the fact that the  story was based on "quasi-privileged"  information contained in agenda material  mailed to the press prior to School Board  meetings. Normally, such information  does and should remain privileged, as  Mr. Mills pointed out.  In this case however, as in other matters pertaining especially to School  District information, the basic information had been kicked around the community for some time.  This creates a difficult problem for  the newsperson. The Sechelt School  Board is the second largest single  employer on the Sunshine Coast next to  Port Mellon. The schools of our district  serve 2,500 students, employ over 160  teachers, service people and staff, and  have an impact on virtually every home  on the Coast. Decisions made by the  Board are therefore important. The  nature of our community is such that  information, accurate or otherwise,  travels quickly. Any important decision  is, always has been, and always will be,  known to the students, teachers or  parents almost before the people directly  concerned.  In other words, a lot of people know  what is going on and if thc information  is accurate or not, the press often finds  itself in such a position that they are  obliged to filter through the rumours to  try to establish thc facts. Dangle a fact in  front of a newspaper man and he is  compelled to write about it, partly because a good newsperson is a gossip  monger and partly because he/she  works under the essential assumption  that the truth, no matter how unpleasant,  is better than rumour or lies.  Such was the situation last week.  The press has been aware of a number of  aspects of School Board business for  some time ��� the Pender Harbour  situation being one. The better part of  the Pender Harbour citizenry has known  about "Concerned Parents" and the  brief they submitted to the Board ��� all  basically public information. Was the  press briefed? Was the "Concerned  Parents" paper given to the press?  Were the press made aware of substantial educational issues and changes  through any specified public relations  officer? No!  Unfortunately, what we have is information through rumour and speculation.  We believe the time has come when  information ��� factual, informed, information ��� ought to be aired immediately.  We believe that since people know some  of the facts almost before the fact, we  should at least be told the facts after the  fact. That this is not happening is not  the fault of the press when they print  the meagre-knowns, but the fault of the  public officials, for not telling what the  people know anyway.

We of this area have a similar battle  on our hands; similar, but with one  exception: we arc fighting on two  fronts. Firstly, to stop the spraying  programme; and secondly, for the right  to have a say in the route for thc new  powerline.  The most urgent fight at the moment  is the spraying programme. We have  effectively won ourselves some time,  until the 18th of August when two  complaints against Hydro's plans to seed  with pellets will be heard by thc Pesticide Control Branch. One complaint is  Irom the Regional Board and another  separate one, from a private citizen.  While calling a halt to the seeding of  pellets is of prime importance, we must  not lose sight of the second battle front,  the powerline.  Hydro is presently using a tack which  was completely predictable to anyone  at the open house meeting in Pender  Harbour. The six hour meeting on June  17 was the perfect setting for the divide  and conquer approach, as there was  never at any time a great concentration  of people present. This fact is now being  used by Hydro as an indication that local  hostility is negligible.  On or around August 21, Mr. J.  O'Riordan from the Environment and  Land Use Committee will be in this  area. Thc Regional Board will attempt to  set up a public meeting at that time, to  give him a true feeling of the opposition  to thc powerline.  Hydro, with the aid of our financial  support, can lobby when they feel it  necessary. Wc can't. This is an opportunity to do so; don't let it slip by.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Four CF-101 Voodoos from 409  Squadron in Comox will fly over  Gibsons on August <1 in an aerial  salute lo Sea Cavalcade.

Western Explosives factory In Tunstall Bay. The  plant became operational in 1909. It produced four hundred cases of  dynamite and four hundred kegs of black powder dally. The scene  here, with four-master at dock, looks idyllic enough, but it was not  always so. Accidental blasts wrecked parts of the plant and killed  workers, some of whom, not understanding English, were unable to  read the posted safety rules. While mere puffs compared to the  detonations of more modern explosives designed to kill, these  powders, made to blast rock and tree stump were, nevertheless, as  Mercutio said of the fiery Tybalt's thrust, "enough". They sufficed,  for those within reach of their disruptions. The factory was moved to  James Island in 1913. As this photo goes to press, the James Island  operations are being phased out, leaving British Columbia without a  powder plant of any sort. Explosives Creek, which empties into  Tunstall Bay, commemorates the one-time existence of this rather  tragic enterprise. Photo courtesy of Fred Billington and Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum. L.R- Peterson  Continued   from   last   week  Next morning, many of the  passengers disembark at Lake  Louise and Banff and the train  runs down through the eastern  Rockies into the land of oil.  There is an ebullient Peruvian  Indian in the cafeteria car this  morning flanked by a sombre  and painfully shy Canadian  student of higher mathematics  and computers.  The Peruvian is a doctor  of architecture teaching at the  University of Pennsylvania.  He is flying home from Calgary after the train ride  through the mountains and  one is struck again by the  international flavour of the  journey.  Don't Canadians know  about the joys of their mountain railways? Is everyone in  Western Canada flying to  Las Vegas or chartering buses  to Reno?  Be that as it may the conversation in the cafeteria car  is good and the sales tax is  off the beer because this is  Alberta. Architecture, the  Habitat Conference, the world  situation, and the mountains  comprise our conversational  fare and it sustains us for a  few more in the Palliscr Hotel  in Calgary with my brother  before my Peruvian friend has  to go to catch his plane.  On the journey home the  train is an hour late. Delayed  in Winnipeg by air conditioning that refused to work in  the dining car. it has been  further delayed by thc discovery a half hour out of Winnipeg that thc hot water isn't  working in the replacement  car.  The quality of thc loudspeaker isn't good and the  dining car steward's voice  adds an edge of its own as  hc announces dinner. There is  some attempt to relay music  but the loudspeaker shrieks  and groans and finally it  fades away.  Meanwhile outside there is  a succession of storms in thc  mountains: great lashings of  rain so that from the front of  the observation car you can't  see the engine only two cars  ahead. The rain is interspersed with brilliant sunshine. The train is climbing  steadily and once suddenly  there is a rainbow below us in  the valley. The top of the arc  is level with the train and  both ends are visible down in  thc valley.  Towards evening we  emerge high on the mountain  side.     Two  more  levels  of  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  track are below us and below  that is the Trans-Canada  Highway and below that is the  river. At last, in daylight,  I am seeing the Kicking Horse  Pass.  We enter a tunnel heading  west and come out of it head ���  ing back to the east at a lower  level. The cafeteria steward  is a veteran of eighteen years.  He says wistfully, "These  are the Spiral Tunnels.  There's two of them. They're  Doth 900 feet long. When 1  started on the road the passenger trains were long  enough you could see thc  front end going east out of  the tunnel down here while  the back end was still going  west into it. Not now."  After the eastbound strip,  the train turns and heads  north into the second tunnel  and does a three-quarters  of a circle turn to the righl  and comes out on the third  level heading west again.  The conductor is upstairs ir  the observation car giving  facts and figures.  "He's the only guy on the  run that still bothers to do  it," says the steward. "They  used to give them all a list  of the statistics and an outline  of thc story of its building.  Give to the passengers  as a keepsake. I mean it's  one of thc engineering marvels of the world, eh? Today  he's only got two copies to  give out amongst all those  people. You know what I  mean?"  Yes. I think I know what  you mean, my eighteen-year  veteran of "thc road".  The train plunges into the  five-mile long tunnel that  takes it through the mountain  at Roger's Pass. Behind me in  the observation car two men  talk with knowledge and nostalgia about trains. One is a  businessman from Toronto.  The other is a locomotive  engineer who drives freight  trains out of Swift Current,  Saskatchewan.  The seat I am sitting in is  settled into its springs in that  shiny silver car which will  probably not be replaced. It  is not only in the terminal in  Vancouver that historic ghosts  are being swept aside.  It is ironic that now, when a  new awareness of ourselves  as Canadians and of our  history seems to be astir in  the land, wc may be about to  lose our opportunity to ride  these storied rails.    It is an  old obsession of mine, this.  I am as ever baffled by  Canadians. I have found this  country to be stirring in its  magnificent vastness and  beauty. 1 have found the  history of its settlement by  two very differing peoples  to be fascinating. Canadian  history boring? What about  thc voyagcurs and the whole  centuries long drama of the  fur trade. Canadians dull?  Show me a more complex,  capable and entertaining  figure than John A. Mac-  donald.  From thc Arctic to the  America border, from Peggy's  Cove to Port Hardy this  immense land is both beautiful and storied. Why are its  people so seemingly indifferent. Why is it Hawaii and  California, Las Vegas and  Reno, Florida and New  York that draw us. Why do  we have idiotic disc jockeys  screaming the temperatures  of southern places at us?  Why don't we go north to  thc sun in our summertime?  No place on earth has more of  it.  Ah well, it is as 1 say an  old obsession.  Meanwhile back in thc train  thc cafeteria steward is staring gloomily out of thc window  as the train moves down in  growing darkness and rain  towards Vancouver. His  lace clears lor a moment and  he says, "God. you should see  this country under snow,"  I think I will. I think I'll  make another trip in winter  lo sec those mountains  under snow. That is, if the  trains still run.  In a couple of weeks it will  be Sea Cavalcade in Gibsons.  Sea Cavalcade is a festival  which celebrates Gibsons'  connection with thc sea ���  from the time when the first  white settler, George Gibsons,  took his produce to town,  rowing down in a longboat  on a Friday and returning  next day or Sunday with provisions, which sometimes  included a raft of lumber.  It all started here ��� the  entire coast experience ��� and  it was always connected to  the sea. Without the sea  coast Gibsons is nothing. It  brings our trade and commerce and takes away our  produce. In the early days  the sea provided fish ��� fish  in sueh profound abundance  as would boggle the mind of  today's patient angler. Talcs  arc told of monstrous salmon  being landed in days of yore,  on hand lines with a piece of  the angler's red Stanfields as  bait.  Nor could life continue in  those olden days without  timber ���- trees such as arc  beyond thc wildest fantasies  of today's voracious logger.  Lumber and produce went  down to town every week,  and whatever was needed  came back. Nowadays timber  is still what keeps Gibsons  going. Logging up at  Jacksons. or behind Elphinstone, or up Rainy River on  Gambier Island, or as far  away as McNab Creek, still  keeps Gibsons going. Timber  brought down the coast, from  Vancouver Island or even from  the Queen Charlottes, keeps  boom men going rain or shine  all year long. The wood chips  from the timber keep alive  one of the oldest pulp mills  WITH SHIPS THE SEA WAS  SPRINKLED FAR AND NIGH  With ships the sea was sprinkled far and nigh,  Like stars in heaven, and joyously it showed;  Some lying last at anchor in the road,  Some veering up and down, one knew not why.  A goodly vessel did I then espy  Come like a giant Irom a haven broad;  And lustily along the bay she strode,  Her tackling rich, and ol apparel high.

If you want to discuss  the production of real wealth  on our beautiful coast then  you can't separate the discussion from thc sea; logging,  booming, pulp mills, fishing,  tourism, everything depends  on the grace and benevolence  of thc sea.  And so wc have the Sea  Cavalcade ��� the parade, the  spectacle, the princesses,  the kids' races, the competition among boom men and  pulp packers, the dances,  thc beer garden ��� everything  to celebrate the kindness and  benevolence shown to Gibsons  by the sea.  Don't think for a minute  cither, that all this is done for  thc tourists. Sure the tourists  arc welcome, sure there is the  element of contrived fantasy  about Sea Cavalcade ��� but  thc people who do it all for  you arc showing a pride in  thc way our community works.  The best, in my way of  thinking, of the Sea Cavalcade events are those which  involve thc various competitions among boom men.  On Sea Cavalcade weekend  there will be a lot to do for  children. teenagers and  adults, but these events arc  only secondary to that Sunday  show when the boom men  perform, Log barking, running boom sticks, driving  dozer boats and winders,  tugs of war ��� skills used  every day by boom men in  isolated coves, bays and inlets as they perform their  work. One day a year these  skills arc on display and a  largely unknown and little  understood industry gets  some recognition.  Early Sunday morning on  Sea Cavalcade weekend,  some of thc men will anchor  a string of boom sticks off  Armour's Beach, tugs, dozers  and winders from claims up  Howe Sound will begin to  arrive. After lunch the  events will begin and the  majority of Sea Cavalcade  spectators will converge on  the hill above the beach to  watch thc fun.  Sea Cavalcade is not grand  or elegant or particularly  polished, but it is a traditional  Gibsons festival, begun,  promoted and carried on by  a few citizens who think our  little town is worth it. All the  rest of us can only thank them  for their work and have a good  time at thc Sea Cavalcade. LETTERS  of the ' 'planned economy''. Despite the good intentions, a  planner may feel he has, the  results of his efforts are, in my  opinion, a detriment to the community as a whole by creating  regulations which restrict the  rights of individual property  owners, whilst the planner  pretends to possess superior  ability.  If 1 wish to build anything other  than a single family residence on  my property, I would first seek  the neighbours' points of view,  then formal permission. I am  quite within my rights to do so.  However, I would prefer to ask  my elected representatives,  rather than an appointed official  living off the fat of the land.  I do not wish this letter to be  construed as a personal attack on  thc village planner, whoever  that person may be. It is the idea  that governments have a right  to control and manipulate every  aspect of ur lives to which I take  exception. From my experience,  planning authorities tend to adopt  this notion, and I consider it to  be a timely reminder to your  readers that this was not always  so, nor is it a healthy attitude to  mortgage one's future in this  way. I trust that council will act  with thc rights of their elected  representatives in mind.  Robert Sharp  Coast News, August 1,1978  Angry  Fisheries  Telegram: Received July 26,1978  Editor:  An item in the June 13, 1978  edition of your newspaper  entitled "Fisheries Dispute"  has reached my attention, and I  would like to take issue with some  of the statements contained  therein. There can be no question  that I. as Minister of Fisheries,  have never(sic) "traded off"  the interests of West Coast  fishermen against those of East  Coast fishermen, nor would I  consider so doing. The present  dispute with the U.S.A. which  resulted in the suspension of  the interim Fisheries Agreement  in early June was a dispute  which affected all Canadian  fishermen and the action taken  by the government is indicative  of the fact that we are negotiating very hard on behalf of the  interests of the whole Canadian  coastal fisheries community.  Romeo Leblanc,  Minister of Fisheries  Rezoning  Open letter to Gibsons Council:  Gentlemen:  1 wish to register my displeasure re: your intention to rezone  to R-3 all properties presently  zoned R-4. It is my strong opinion  that such action is completely  premature.  I have been the owner of Lot  20, D.L. 684, Plan 4438, since  1967. It has been my desire to  build on this property for many  years but you have turned down  my application for road maintenance so Hydro could be obtained.  I have drilled for water at a cost of  $5,000 but I am completely  dependent on electricity supply.  My main reason for building is  to get away from suburbia with  which I presently have to live on  North Fletcher Road. By rezoning you instigate the possibility  of sporadic development in a  rural area which should be kept  as a buffer zone between the  Village core and the rest of the  peninsula.  No one has ever applied to be  included with the Village. I have  never asked for any favours but  please do not re-zone the Chaster-  Shaw Road area, with access from  Pratt Road, until you have to...  when no more space is available  and then only to a minimum of  half-acre lots. When the time is  ripe any developer will pay for  cost of services including your  precious sewer. Please remember that all progress is not necessarily good. With the quantity  of so many lots available (6,000  sq. ft. in size), (Cheekside Village) and the glaring lack of success of seventy-seven lots on  Veterans Road, I believe that  re-zoning an entire area to a  higher and better use will create  an unnecessary increase in value  of property through speculation  and the general greed of people  with the result of unoccupied and  thus not maintained lots.  Over the years I have shared  property with a black bear and a  considerable number of deer.  Neither these animals nor 1 arc-  in need of a duplex-zoned property, therefore, please keep the  zoning to R-4, which will keep development to a minimum and  speculation non-existent.  After all, you are elected to  govern the Village, which, in my  opinion, does not include creating  any more suburbia with all its  so-called amenities.  Try to practice your so often  meaningless statement uttered  by every politician, "I stand for  controlled growth".  C. A.PeterAelbers  More  Open letter to Council  Re: Lot 7, Block S, D.L. 686���  Residential Property at Seaview  Road, Gibsons  Council members:  I received notice last Friday  from Mr. Copland, clerk-treasurer for Gibsons, indicating that  council will be considering a possible change of zoning of my property from CDA (comprehensive  development area) to R-3 (residential zone).  My house is a single family  residence on a lot, characteristic  of the area on the slope above  Marine Drive. It is my understan-  ing that the development rights  for my property belong to me as  the private property owner, and  that it is council's responsibility  to protect those rights, as well as  those of other property owners. I  do not wish to have my property  rezoned to R-3, and ask council to  vote "no" to such a proposal.  Any council member voting otherwise will not receive my support  in the next municipal election.  I consider it to be an impertinence on the part of the local  planner to assume that he/she  knows best how to direct the development of private property. I  do not make such a statement  flippantly. Having studied the  development of private and public  planning from its early forms in  Mesopotamia and Egypt through  Greek, Roman, European and  finally North American civilizations up to our present day, and  having worked in both government and private practice myself  for the last twelve years, in England and in Canada, I have little  faith in the creative ability of  municipal planners and their  respective bureaucracies. (Senior  governments are even worse, in  this respect.)  My property was zoned CDA  because, according to the municipal authority, the planner did not  know what he/she wanted to do  with the area. The development  rights of private property owners  were put on "hold". I.e., frozen  until the colours and ciphers on  the zoning plan could be rearranged to match some vision of  the future.  Generally, the results of such  planning expertise is to increase  taxation through zoning manipulation, the market value of property, and hence taxation, being  reflected in the new zoning  rights. A planner may often  master the use of the electronic  calculator and lettering aids,  but seldom manages to make a  real contribution towards a better  living environment. This is understandable, simply because it  is impossible for such a person to  possess more vision and imagination than all the private property  owners put together. Also it is  impossible to predict changes in  ownership and what property  owners may wish to do with their  property. Such circumstances  are anathema to the protagonists  Editor's Note: The following  letter has been substantially'  edited due to Its extreme length.

Craddock's Slough part II  Finally, out of room-rent;  reduced to a few crumpled  dollars and our rumpled  clothes, we wandered morosely along the docks, looking  for miracles; vaguely talking  of trying to sneak up on a ship.  Suddenly Chris spotted a  redhaired kid with a packsack  coming up the ramp from a  small-boat float. "Hey.  that's Billy Cramer, for  God's sake!" Turned out they  had worked on the same crew  together, the previous year.  When Billy informed us that  he had just quit as whistle-  punk at some camp, the same  thought hit all three of us  simultaneously. We lost no  time in accosting George  Craddock. his late boss.  "Just got the one job open,"  he said mournfully. We  decided the only fair way  was to flip a coin. To my  amazement, I won the toss.  That night we had a "parting  ot the ways" party, courtesy  of Billy. It ended in the  scrofulous room where I  woke this morning.  A stretch of rougher water  bounces me loose from my  reveries. I glance out the  streaked window. Gulls wheel  and complain through gray-  green ambiguities. The desolate low-lying coastline  untolds like a dull book. I  haven't a clue in hell where  we are and ask Craddock.  "May as well grab yourself  some sleep," he says vaguely,  glancing up from sagebrush  fantasies,  "she's a six-hour  B��ane/i��ei.EEaC3Sl �����n*i  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  run.  But I can't sleep and it  seems more like six years  before we nose finally into  a small cove. Craddock tosses  over the anchor and they start  to unship the dinghy. I gaze  about confusedly. The bay is  quite empty ��� no sign of  human habitation whatsoever,  let alone a logging-camp.  What is this'.' I'm afraid to  ask. I help load the several  boxes of supplies into the  dinghy. Craddock    rows  ashore and stacks them on thc  rocky beach. I can't stand it  any longer. "Wh-rc in hell's  the camp?" f ask worriedly.  "Don't worry, son," says  Carver, "she's just over the  ridge there. Can't go in the  front way except at high  tide. We have to take the  trail."  Soon we're climbing the  steep path, each toting a  couple of boxes like pirates  off to bury treasure-chests.  The two I've grabbed seem  damn heavy. I'm puffing a  bit before reaching the  brow of the ridge. There's  Craddock's camp.  It slouches across the  marsh-grass at the head of a  short, shallow tidal slough  maybe quarter of a mile wide,  a frowsy clutch of battered  shacks huddled against the  many-green wall of the  rainforest.

It is as  though the sea herself has  assembled the float-camp  piece by piece in the crotch of  this tiny inlet. The shacks and  the small boom in front of  them are all high and dry at  the moment. Tide's dead out  and the slough, apart from a  creek on the farther side, is  a slimy morass, foul-smelling  even on this damp day and  empty of water. I experience  a definite sinking feeling.  Luke Carver, who's not far  ahead of me must be reading  my mind. "Welcome to the  a���hole of the earth I" he  says.  We dump the supplies off  at the shake-sided cookshack  where a small Chinaman  without much English excitedly chatters. Craddock ushers  me to his upholstered woodshed of an office and officially  signs me on.  I've heard Chris and Verne  talk about gyppo-camps  without ever quite realizing  what they meant by the term.  I'm about to find out. This is  the opposite side of the moon  from Sandspit ��� a make-it  or break-it shoestring show.  I find an empty bed in one of  the splintery-walled bunkhouses. The crew's still  out in the woods. I lie back on  the army-bunk and resign  myself to whatever comes  next. I reason, half-guiltily,  it's better than riding boxcars.  That night at a greasy  porkchop supper that bodes  ill for the future, I'm introduced brusquely by Craddock  to the rest of the crew.  There's Harry Stockton, the  hooktender, short, late-  twenties, cocky-looking;  Axel Johansen who's not long  from the fiords, speaks in a  heavy accent, is tall, shy,  does the chasing; the donkey-  puncher, Slim Brinks, human  beanpole, good-humoured  maybe because he's bunching  her at the end of the week;  Ted Jimmy the rigging-  slinger, an Indian kid with a  pock-marked, sullen face;  Clarence his younger brother  who's setting chokers and  looks a fraction more sociable.  Not a very prepossessing  bunch. I feel small empathy  with any of them.

There  is apparently a cat-skinner  called Jean Dupree who lives  with Mary, his woman, in a  cabin up the creek. The  others speak of them disparagingly. They sound  jealous.  Next morning I'm standing  in the dripping brush with a  coil of rubber-coated wire  around my neck, trying to  blow whistles for the first  time.

"Goddammit,  punk, get them bastards  right!" hollers the short-  fused Stockton. I seethe  inwardly. It's traditionally  part of this job to take guff  but I sure don't have to like it.  To minimize the verbal  abuse, I force myself to  get better, I listen intently  to each falsetto shout like an  eavesdropper; limber my  fingers to click the bug  more deftly. Despite my  efforts, I still make mistakes.  Stockton loses no opportunity  to harrangue me. "Jesus!  Clean them bloody ears out,  eh?" I begin to detest the  arrogant little bastard but I'm  in no position to talk back.  Broke in the middle of  nowhere, 1 suffer his insults  in silence. By the end of the  week, I begin to adjust to  the unpleasant environment  as a man adjusts to jail.  Slim Brinks, the long-  geared engineer, heads in  with the supply-boat, his  last paycheque like a parole  in his pocket. I'm sorry to see  him go. He seemed the only  man on the crew with any  sort of laughter in him. The  rest appear to be humourless ��� smouldering with dull  hostilities. Axel the chaser is  an exception and maybe Lee  Ching but neither speaks  English worth a damn and it's  hard to forgive the Chinaman's inept cooking. I give  up trying to communicate with  any of them and proceed to  scour the shacks for reading-  material. It's a sorry selection ��� old True Detective  magazines. Confession  books, ancient Reader's  Digests, endless westerns.  I devour them resignedly,  wishing I'd had the money  to buy some sciencefiction  magazines in Rupert. Working here is bad enough but  the nights and weekends  promise to be grimmer.  The brokendown radio pulls  in   one   bad   station   from  Bxaan  Twilight Theatre  What may be the finest film  of thc decade, Woody Allen's  Annie Hall, is showing at the  Twilight Theatre next week for an  all too brief three-day appearance  Sunday, August 6, Monday August 7. and Tuesday, August  8. Thc Academy Award winning  feature shown last October at  the Twilight was directed by  Woody Allen and written by  Allen in conjunction with Marshall Brickman.  The episode tale is fragmented  into various scenes of past and  present, some being very funny  and others, while not especially  hilarious, emerge as satirical  and potent comments on relationships in today's society. The production is also a love poem to  Woody Allen's favourite co-star  and former leading lady in real  life, Diane Keaton. The script  allows her to be endearing,  irritating, awkward, sophisticated, charming, funny and  beautiful at different times and  she handles two old favourites,  "It Had to be You" and "Seems  Like Old Times" well. Use of the  latter is the theme song and the  bittersweet ending make this the  most sentimental of Allen's  films.  Annie Hall should please those  who are not Allen enthusiasts  in addition to his fans because of  its romantic theme. A number of  names have cameo roles including composer-singer Paul Simon  and Colleen Dewhurst.  Since last seen in Gibsons  Annie Hall has won Academy  Awards for Diane Keaton as Best  Actress and for Allen himself as  Best Director.  The sex comedy, Mallbu  Beach, plays Wednesday, August 2. through Saturday, August  5. The film which carries the  B.C.Censor's Mature rating  warns of "some nude and suggestive scenes" relates the adventures of young California  beach types involved in various  escapades and sex adventures,  including drag racing, cruising,  wild parties, sex interludes and  the familiar confrontation  with  Ketchican which seems  dedicated to playing the  corniest music this side of  Guy Lombardo. The mudflats  sprawl dismally beyond  the window exuding the  odour of rotten fish. It's  better when the tide fills the  bay like a bottle, drowning  the smells, rocking the  patchwork camp afloat  with clean salt water.

Come cry l  with me  Dear Ann,  My work takes me away from  home for two weeks or ten days,  depending on weather and other  conditions. We have no children,  but 1 have a pretty wife. Whenever I come home unexpectedly,  she's usually away. If not away,  she has someone I don't know,  visiting. I feel something is going  on. I should say, I wonder if  she's loving another man in my  absense. What do you think?  Doubtful  Dear Doubtful:  Well, you certainly have little  to go on. When a partner is unfaithful. I think instinctively one  knows. There's a barrier where  there used to be ease and closeness. It isn't always another person; it can be a grudge for a  wrong, imagined or otherwise.  Are you attentive when you are  home? Do you give her your undivided attention for a few hours  when you return? Really look at  her, bring a little surprise,  flowers or a small gift, let her  know in some way your feelings.  If she responds, you'll see and  feel how it's going. We can trust  our feelings, more than our suspicions.  Dear Ann:  My man is a businessman. He  is always putting off sex. If hc  does get romantic, it's a flash in  the pan; I feel like I'm in a  dream. I can't tell for sure  what happens, but it doesn't  happen for me. Is this a usual  problem? Hanging  Dear Hanging,  Yes, very. It's also difficult to  do anything about. It's like the  sex drive has been altered into  a success drive. Money and  power take first place in some  people's lives, men particularly.  You'll.find this in tired mothers  too. Womenget so wrapped up in  their children that the husband  fades into the background.  After a day of varied chores, crying and problem-solving, little  energy or interest is left for sex.  The only solution I've found is to  leave children with a dependable  person and go off alone. In your  case I think it's imperative to get  away from familiar surroundings  and the telephone. Our society is  filled with interruptions. That  doesn't help; interruptions can  kill drive and desire! How many  times have you given up love-  making after thc phone rings? So  get away overnight for dinner and  EHhighum n  ��-   Astrology  By Rae Ellingham  Week Commencing: July 31.  General Notes: The Sun and New  Moon square Uranus warning us  to prepare for sudden, unexpected conditions as the week closes.  Because of the New Moon influence, these new conditions should  last a whole month. The curious  may wish to take note.  Babies born this week will have  four planets in Virgo indicating a  strong ability to sift and analyse  much     detailed      information.  However, they should be taught  not to criticize unnecessarily and,  instead,   view   matters   on   a  broader scale. Here's an astrological quotation  from  good old  William Shakespeare:  "There's some ill planet reigns,  I must be patient till thc heavens/  look  With an aspect more favorable.  ARIES (Much 21 - April 19)  Social activities, pleasures,  amusements, romance, and love  affairs arc subject to unusual or  weird conditions. Weekend arrangements should bc scrapped  In favour of spontaneous get-  togethers. Health and employment matters are under strong  focus.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Domestic blow-ups seem inevitable as those close to you fail to  see your point of view. Partners  and loved ones are cranky and  should be left alone. You're in  too serious a mood to enjoy weekend fun and frivolity.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Phone calls, letters, short  visits, local messages all require  sudden decisions. Avoid dust-  ups with brothers, sisters, and  neighbours. Domestic situation  needs extra information for  clearer analyses. Highway  driving requires much care on  Thursday.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Financial affairs are subject to  sudden losses or gains. Think  deeply before making commitment to new speculative venture.  Possessions must be guarded  against loss, theft, or breakdown  as week closes. Children are soon  thc source of added expenses.  Letter brings sombre news.  LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)  Sudden events shake you up  emotionally. Unexpected domes-  a hotel. That's to gct into focus  on each other again. If you can't  afford a night away, go and camp  on the beach or in a park. Rent a  boat and go to an island for a  picnic. We are bombarded by so  many sights and sounds. 1 feel It's  thc only way to make thc world  stop and get off for a while. Businessmen get keyed up and competitive, and have a difficult  time slowing down.  tic upsets force you to change  image and outlook. Now's thc  time to abandon old ideas and  habits. Financial affairs still  need detailed investigation.  Those born around August 3  must expect twelve months of  changed conditions.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  With four planets and the  Moon in your sign, fresh activities  and personal transformation  should be well under way.  Mental ability and common sense  reach all-time high so stick to  decisions. Weekend messages or  journeys are linked to hospitals  and friends in seclusion.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 ��� Oct. 23)  Mars enters your sign bringing  a fresh burst of new personal activities for thc next six weeks.  Advice, however, is not to rush  into projects without thorough  planning. Meanwhile, old friends  and acquaintances arc linked to  financial disagreements as the  week closes.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  Honour, position, reputation,  and reliability receive unexpected  jolt owing to your unconventional  approach. This is no time to  flaunt rebellious streak. Advice is  to apologize sincerely and make  swift amends. Meanwhile, focus  is still on group projects, community affairs, lending a helping  hand and assisting neighbours.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23 - Dee.21)  Long-distance communications  bring unexpected news regarding  forgotten friends or relatives.  A few of you will have to take  sudden journeys to far-away  places. Those involved with upcoming university or college  courses must prepare for changed  procedures. Paper work is still  connected to career interests and  promotions.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 ��� Jan. 19)  Other people's financial affairs  arc thc center of weekend disruptions. However, this is no time to  lend money or possessions to  mere outsiders. Be prepared for  sudden changes regarding personal insurance and lax matters.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Partnerships and close associations could end suddenly now  owing to explosive conditions.  Many of you may be forced to  defend your position and reputation before peaceful activities  resume. Despite thc turmoil, it's  no time to sign agreements or  seek legal advice. Marriages face  ;i lesl period.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 21)  Employment scene is tense  and wise workers will consider  lakiin; a few days off. Misunder-  statulings regarding innovative  ideas arc thc source of these disruptions. Health problems occur  suddenly and. as usual, professional reassurance should bc  sought.

A concert  last Friday. July 28 at Elphinstone drew a sparse audience  barely exceeding thirty, but the  sniall audience enjoyed a variety  of good music performed by lhc  Trio Lieto (Joyful Three! ranging  from the classical slylings of  Mo/arl lo Ihe uniquely successful blending of Eastern and  Western styles, old and new.  of the contemporary American  composer Alan Hovahncss.  The trio consisted of Carol  Westdal. soprano, and Lisa  Challans (bolh third year students  in U.B.C.'s Faculty of MusUl  and clarinetist Robert Sheffield  who graduated this year and will  be leaving in Ihe fall for Cincinnati! where he will be involved  in post-graduate work. Ihe trio  has been concertizlng extensively  in Ihe greater Vancouver area  during (he summer and their  engagement here is the only one  outside (hat area.  There were a number of inaccuracies in Lisa's accompaniments, perhaps due to nervousness, but she generally maintained a good empathy with her  fellow performers and was  musically sound in giving her  parts the right degree of emphasis or subservience. Carol has  a pleasing voice somewhat nasal  in its production. She handled  with assurance the coloratura  in Mozart's "Parto. parte"  (Clemenza di Tito), and the range  of this aria, originally for male  alto (castrato). suited her voice  well. She is more a mezzo-  soprano repertoire.  Robert Sheffield is a fine  musician with a sure command of  his instrument enabling him to  produce the shades and nuances  of tone which characterized  his playing.  SUNSHINE COAST  PEST CONTROL  Space limitations preclude a  detailed analysis of the music  played, but the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council is to be commended  for bringing these promising  musicians to play for us. I  wish them all well with their  continuing studies.

In attendance  were District Superintendent  Denley. Secretary-Treasurer  Mills. School Board Chairman  Douglas, and Trustees Clayton,  Dombroski. Frizzell. Prescesky  and Rottluff. Trustee Spieker-  mann was not present but was  expected to arrive for the in-  camera part of the meeting.  The meeting was called to  order at 7:33 p.m., and the  routine adoption of agenda and  so forth was completed. Mr.  Jorgenson felt that he had been  misquoted in attaching blame for  thc arena's financial difficulties  to the School Board, lt was  agreed that Mr. Jorgenson would  have to make a formal presentation to the Board if any further  action or consideration was  required.

Superintendent Denley  informed the Board that all  teachers, whether new to the profession or not, are presently  hired as continuing appointments  and that beginning teachers  could, by motion of the Board,  be placed on probation during the  first year of their appointment.  Probation can be instituted  for continuing teachers, but this  requires a different and more  complex procedure. He further  pointed out the fact that if probation is instituted in the case of a  beginning teacher, it must be  settled by the end of the year  either by termination of the  probation or by extending it for  a second year.  Trustee Frizzell felt that a kind  of internship for teachers new to  thc profession was important,  and that at present few teachers  were being removed for inability  to perform their duties properly.  He believed that thc institution  of an automatic one year probationary term for beginning  teachers would improve the  quality of the profession, and thc  Board voted unanimously to  support thc concept.  There was no discussion as  thc changes in administration  at Pender Harbour Secondary  School recommended by the  School District's Management  Committee and reported in last  week's Coast News were  approved. These changes involve  the re-assignation of present  Principal Frank Holmes to a  teaching position effective September 1 and the assignation of  Director of Instruction John  Nicholson to the position of  Acting Principal at that school  while the search for a principal  is conducted.  In response to a question.  Board Chairman Douglas disclaimed any connection between  these administrative changes and  the brief submitted by a group  calling   itself  the   "Concerned  VARIETY FOODS  SNACK BAR & DELI  886-29361  SNACKS IN THE SUN  ���' 'smb.' ��� ������-���r'l'txi.mmmmiimmmilmASi^r-  A\\\  c  NOTICE BOARD  -al  Victor Tataryn was taken to St. Mary's Hospital with leg injuries after his cat rolled  over, pinning him beneath it.

Al Lloyd, was quoted in another  newspaper as saying that Superintendent Denley had refused  to recognize thc group and that  Denley and School District Secretary-Treasurer Mills rather  than the Board were making the  decisions. This assertion drew  a strong reaction from the  Trustees, particularly Trustee  Clayton who strenuously disagreed with implications to thc  effect that thc Board was unduly  influenced by thc District Superintendent and asserted, "The  Board is its own boss". Thc  District Superintendent and the  Secretary-Treasurer arc the  Board's paid advisors, and the  District Superintendent will be  looking for a principal for Pender  Harbour Secondary School on  behalf of thc Board.

The lease  on the premises presently occupied expires this year. Thc  Regional Board's lease also expires this year, and a letter from  them proposing a joint-use facility on their property in Sechelt  was introduced into the discussion.  Most of the discussion, however, centered around thc possibility of moving the Pender  Harbour portables to one of the  School Board's sites and refurbishing them as School Board  Offices. It seems unlikely that  this could fit into the Regional  Board's concept of a facility for  joint use. Several Trustees  favoured thc idea of using (he  portables for offices. Trustee  Rottluff felt that the savings  which result from doing this  rather than constructing a new  building would result in more  money being available to meet  students'needs.  Secretary-Treasurer Mills  pointed out the fact that the  Ministry of Education's Building  Manual provides for school  board offices of only 2,800  square feet as a shareable  expense. This is the approximate  area of the premises presently  leased, but three members of  the District Staff are located  outside of that area at Chatelech School. Any area constructed in excess of 2,800 square  feet would be a non-shareable  expense. Furthermore, school  board offices are a priority five  item with the Ministry, and as  such a new construction is  extremely unlikely to receive  approval, at least for the forthcoming year.  Trustee Prescesky expressed  apprehension over the idea of  using thc portables as a new  School Board Office and suggested that architect Killick be  involved in a consultative capac-  Phone 886-2622       or     886-7817  SEA CAVALCADE  Queen's Ball.

A meeting will bc arranged  between Trustee Prescesky.  Roy Mills and Maintenance  Superintendent Bob Rutter  at which Trustee Prescesky's  reservations can be further dis-  cussed.  The question of location,  regardless of just what eventually  comprises the School Board  Offices, was the subject of lively  discussion. Trustee Clayton  felt that thc offices should be  geographically central and that  Sechelt. therefore, should be  chosen as the location. It was  generally agreed, however, that it  was not dcsircablc to have thc  offices located on a school site  effectively eliminating the  Chatelech site from consideration. Trustee Rottluff reported  that Gibsons electors had  expressed quite strongly their  wishes that the offices should  remain in Gibsons. Chairman  Douglas expressed the opinion  that thc offices should bc in one  of the major population centres  whereupon Trustee Frizzell  suggested Davis Bay with a  population of 2.000 as opposed  to Sechelt's 900or so.  Trustee Clayton felt that the  Resource Centre should be included in the complex, Roy  Mills observed, however, that  delivery twice a week made an  end location more efficient and  the need for the Resource Centre  to be in a central location was not  critical.  Because of ihe many questions  to be resolved and the political  considerations involved. Superintendent John Denley suggested  that a matrix of the alternatives  be prepared and a Committee  struck to consider them, possibly  by a process of elimination. This  suggestion was adopted by the  Board.  In other School Board business,  thc matter of Policy concerning  Principal Administrative Time  and Relieving Teacher Time was  tabled until the business meeting  in September as was a questionnaire on the Atypical Child.  '���4,000 were approved as capital  funding for new equipment at  thc Native Environmental Studies  Programme premises at Tzoodnic  (Deserted Bay). Water for the  new Pender Harbour Secondary  School is to be provided from  Anderson Creek and the Regional Board is to be contacted to  request their participation  in construction of the water  line. A sprinkling system at  Langdale Elementary School  will be included in next year's  Capital Expense Programme  (S), and it is hoped that this  will satisfy thc requirements of  the Insurance Corporation of  British Columbia.

A dozen is a dozen.  The B.C.Metric Conversion  Office has learned that someone  is distributing a bogus 'Metric  Bulletin' which falsely states that  after September 1 a dozen will  contain ten items rather than  twelve and the gross will be  reduced to one hundred units  from one-hundred and forty-four.  It also indicates that beer and  eggs would have to bc sold in  packs of five and ten.  "This is a hoax." said Gene  Gosh, director of the B.C.Metric  Conversion office. "The size  of the dozen will in no way be  affected by metric conversion;  a dozen contains twelve by definition and nobody could change  that even if they wanted to."  The real 'Metric Bulletin'  is issued by the federal Metric  Commission. The bogus bulletin  shows Canada's metric symbol  leaning to the left rather than to  the right. Strokers  By Dennis Gray  In thc mountains behind Gold-  bridge there is a spot called  Taylor Basin. It is eight miles off  the road from Goldbridge to many  other pleasant places. The road/  trail follows the Cinnebar Creek  and was last used regularly in  Ihe thirties by the Lucky Strike  mine. The country is mostly low  heavy-timbered mountains; the  trail is a pleasant ride on a motorcycle and one sixin begins to  concentrate on riding; that is  why WC were there. Before long  wc were racing up thc mountain,  oblivious to everything except  the trail and each other. When  we suddenly burst out of the  heavy timber wc all stopped,  struck by thc stunning beauty of  thc mountains on cither side. Wc  had passed within five miles of  this place often. How could such  Banff-like beauty be so well hidden? We stopped many times  over the next few miles to enjoy a  small clear stream, an alpine  meadow, or colour gushing from  the earth and flowing down the  hillside in purple flowers. Each  hill,each corner in the trail gave  a new visual experience, scenes  that cannot bc compressed into  a camera image yet would always  remain clear in our memories.  When wc reached the high  basin it was as if we had suddenly  found Shangri-la. Thc mountains  stood high around us on three  sides, barren of trees except for  a few tenatious shrubs clinging to  thc crumbling rocks. The mountains looked old and worn with  their jagged edges long ago  rounded off by the severe weather. It was the first time I had  heard silence. I think it can only  bc heard in the high mountains:  everything is so distant and yet  so close and it surrounds you. the  occasional marmot whistle, millions of droplets of melting snow  joyously re-starting their cycle,  the faint sounds of the wind in  the distance as if the mountains  were breathing. There was no  noise, just Ihe sounds of the  mountains. Great slashes of snow  ran down the shadowed side of  thc mountain almost to where we  stood. They cleaned and cooled  the breeze and collected in a clear  stream that ran between three  old log cabins before it dashed,  laughing and splashing, down the  way we had come.  We spent several days there.  Wc watched the marmots and the  deer, we enjoyed thc sunshine  and the rain, we rolled in the  snow and bathed in the icy  streams and over lush green carpets sprinkled with flowers. We  hiked into thc clouds. We took  part of it with us and left part of  us behind, but we left happier  and younger and much more  humble. Keep on stroking!  I ���  | TED HUMEJ  j SERVICES !

Equus  Coast News, August 1,1978  7.  bv TrishCramer, B.H.A.I,  and Debbie Rhodes  Thc Three Day Event is three  days of hard work for both horse  and rider���not counting the endless days of preparation for such  competition.  The first day is dressage ( a  French word with no English  translation besides training). In  dressage, your turn-out is very  i in port .int. Hlack jacket and  hoots with white breeches and  cither a bowler or hunt cap. Your  horse must be spotless with its  mane braided. You ride in a  twenty-metre by sixty-metre ring  with marking letters at midway  points. You are supplied with a  dressage test which you memor  ize and are judged on way of  going, accuracy, rider position.  A test consists of various movements at walk. trot, and canter,  and is stiffly marked on the  horse's complete obedience and  suppleness.  The second day is the hardest.  It has two phases at training  level and three at preliminary and  intermediate levels. Training  Phase A is called Roads and  Tracks and it consists of four  miles or so Hat. averaging nine  miles per hour. Riders are penalized on time faults. Then there is  a five-mtnute compulsory halt and  vet check before Phase B. Phase  B is Cross-eiiunlry. consisting of  three to four miles of various  jumps, numbering twenty-one or  more through ponds, creeks,  logs, hay bales, and any kind of  solid tree fences. One averages  four hundred and fifty metres  per minute, which is a good hand  gallop, and is penalized on refusals, falls, and time faults.  Preliminary and intermediate  also have steeplechase on the  same day. making their courses  even harder. Steeplechase is held  in a field with lew jumps set far  apart, and it is time that counts.  Aftcrlhe second day's jumping  a lot of care is taken to ensure that  the horse ��ill he read) lor Day  I hree. I Ins is the time for a good  nib-diiv n itml for bandages to be  applied, although mosl horsemen  and women bandage for crosscountry, because no one wants to  hang his her horse's legs. These  are competition bandages with  lull boots. Stable bandages are  applied at night.  The third da\ starts with another vet check to ensure that there  is no damage or lameness from  the day before. Then the stadium  jumping takes place. Riders are  penalized on knock-downs, falls,  refusals, and time.  Iwo day Events combine crosscountry and stadium in the same  daj and shorten the courses.  After the third day. the horse is  left to resl, rubbed down, and not  taken home until the following  duj when he is well rested and  eager.  Most horses are only entered in  Events three or four times a year  and all the rest of the time is  preparation tor the next Event.

The  Pen Times and Coast News have  also, as is predictable, had their  "nuts in the wringer" as it were,  but the vast majority of their  writings have been pleasant  and constructive, and their  Editors with whom I have crossed  swords from time to time, and  hope to do so again, have replied  with some wit, humour and reason.
