 The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  March 21, 1978  Volume 31, Number 12  Fran Bourassa decorated St. Patrick's Day at  the Cedars Inn last week.  Gibsons Plans  from senior governments  could cover 80 cents of every  dollar spent on water supply  and 90 cents on sewer expenditures, but there was no  assistance for drainage construction. And with Gibsons  topography the threat of flash  Hooding after torrential rains  makes drainage planning a  very important consideration.  Finally. Begins emphasized  the need to set out specific-  standards for subdivisions  in printed form to guide  future developers.  In an evening session with  the Crecksidc delegation���  Ken Crosby, Don Head, and  Doug Roy���Council reached  agreement with them on cost  sharing. Thc Creekside subdivision is composed of properties that many citizens  remember by the names of  previous owners���thc Daousts  Youdclls, Sicottes, and the  late Bill Haley.  Ken Crosby informed the  Coast News that one section of  the subdivision will accomodate single wide mobiles,  probably of the 14-foot wide  typo, another for double-  wides, and a third for conventional homes. A building  scheme���a set of regulations  �� Please turn to Page Eight  By George Cooper  Subdivisions���what is our  policy for the Village in  general and what is going to  be our policy on Creekside  Estates, the big 125-lot subdivision on North Road.  These were questions facing  Chairman Hume and his  planning committee on March  13.  The first question was soon  answered - there is no policy  for the Village. Dayton and  Knight's engineer, Agris  Begins, told the committee it  had first to deal with a division  of costs of off-site requirements of thc Creekside subdivision since a delegation was  waiting to see them. These  costs would include a presure  regulating station to economize on the pumping required  between the upper reservoirs,  sewer connecting lines needed  elsewhere in the Village to  accomodate the subdivision,  and drainage sufficient  to carry run-off from areas  adjoining the subdivision.  Secondly, said Begins, a  general policy to cover thc  responsibilities of both thc  Village and future developers  needs to be formulated.  Begins pointed out that grants  Board threatened with legal action  Property owners in the Sandy Hook and Tuwanek area are  threatening legal action on thc heels of thc regular meeting of  Ihe Regional Board which was held on Thursday, March 16.  Thc threat of legal action comes because of a decision by the  board to go ahead with the rezoning of thc Jackson Bros. Log  Dump property, north half of D.L. 1410, west of Porpoise Bay  Road to an Industrial 5 Zone.  A petition of residents of the area were present at the meeting  to protest the rezoning on thc grounds that the whole piece  would not be required by thc changes that Mike Jackson wished  to make in his operation. The property owners felt that if the  whole piece was rezoned Industrial it might lead to future  abuse, though they had no objections to the changes that Jackson sought to implement.  Initially at thc Planning Committee meeting which preceded  the regular meeting the vote in favour of rezoning had been  5-3 with Directors Thompson. Mulligan. Marshall, Hoemberg,  and Gibb in favour and Directors Lee and Harrison opposing  along with Board Chairman Harry Almond. This would have  left the proposal short of the two-thirds required for approval,  but at the regular board meeting Chairman Harry Almond  changed his vote and voted in favour of rezoning.  Area Director Charles Lee, ping. The homeowners  who represents thc area  expressed himself as being  most upset at the fact that  directors invited Mike Jackson to speak to the board.  Lee's position was Ihat no  petitions arc allowable after  public hearings have been  held and that because of this  fact the whole matter must  legally go back to public  hearing.  In a separate issue, the Sandy Hook and Tuwanked property owners presented a petition against thc manufacture  of asphalt by  B.A.Blacktop-  | Garbage  controversy  Some difficulties may lie  ahead for the Roberts Creek  Community Plan which is  scheduled to come up for its  public hearing before becoming a by-law al thc end of  April. The plan has been  hammered out at a series of  public meetings held in Roberts Creek over the past  months.  Thc difficulty arises over a  provision in thc Community  Plan which would expressly  forbid the establishment of a  garbage dump in Roberts  Creek. Since the provision  was included in thc Community Plan, however. Area "E"  director George Gibb, who is  charged iwth responsibility  for thc regional garbage function has come up with a proposal to locate the major garbage dump for the south end  of thc Sunshine Coast in Roberts Creek. Some upgrading  of thc garbage dumps will be  necessary at thc uring of the  provincial Pollution Controls  * Please turn to Pago Eight  argued that this was in  contravention of the agreement which allowed only  thc removal of gravel by  Pacific Rim Aggregates. The  Regional Board directors were  informed that their solicitor  had advised that the asphalt  plant on the non-conforming  zone in questions was a  'gray area' as to whether or  not it constituted manufacturing. "They have no permit to manufacture asphalt,"  argued spokesman Frank  Giampa. Property owners  present testified that there  was a pollution hazard from  the plant.  In other Regional Board  business, it was reported that  the money available for the  Joint Use of Schools function would be allocated in  the coming year for cafe  teria facilities for Elphinstone and Chatelech High  Schools and for showers at  Langdale for community  groups using the Langdale  field.  Director Bernie Mulligan  of Area "F" expressed strong  dissatisfaction over the  Board's decision not to include the cost of Soames Hill  in thc forthcoming recreation  referendum. Mulligan argued that if the Hill were not  included in the referendum  then, since the voters of his  area had already purchased  it and would be charged two  mills also if the referendum passed, in effect thc  voters of his area would be  double taxed. Mulligan said  that the exclusion of Soames  Hill from the referendum  that he and the voters of his  area would in all likelihood  have to oppose the referendum.  An Open Letter  Dear Sunshine Coast:  The Gibsons Marina is beginning to be a reality. If all goes  well the Marina could be in operation by 1979, but only if the  people of this area support it and demonstrate their support.  The Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce would like to  take this opportunity to pledge its whole-hearted endorsement  of the Gibsons Marina, and encourage all those interested  to voice their feelings. This could best be done by filling out  the marina space application forms and turning them in to the  Village Office.  Don't let this worthwhile project fall to apathy. Support  your Marina!  Gibsons & District Chamber of Commerce  Sandy  Hook  property  owners  showed    meeting last week.    Here, spokesman  up en  masse at  the  Regional   Board    Frank   Giampa   presents   their   case.  The Killam controversy  Sechelt Council held an  In Committee meeting with  the Village and Regional  Planners on Monday, March  13th, in order to discuss the  land use dispute with Mr.  Killam. The following is  Council's report on the  meeting.  It was asked whether Mr.  Killam had stated that hc  could, if required, continue  business with thc lumber  storage confined to lots F  and 25 and whether Council  is going to require such  storage to be so confined,  or whether Council is going to  plan with Mr. Killam the  legalized use of all three lots.  Mr. Killam asserts that  Council has known of his  plans to expand and has  given no indication until a  year ago that his operation  was illegal.  Thc planners have shown  that there is sufficient area  on lots F and 25 to accommodate thc lumber storage and  it is now up to Mr. Kiiam to  prove otherwise. Hc has  grossly inadequate parking  facilities for his projected  plans, there is a bad mixture  of uses and thc density is  too great. Complaints were  voiced that Mr. Killam has  assumed Council's compliance based on street conversations instead of formal  meetings.  The resolution of Feb. 24  was reviewed and thc pros and  cons of storing lumber on lol  A    discussed.    Mr.    Killam  asserts that lots F and 25 arc  too valuable on which to slore  lumber. However, lumber  storage was fell to be undesirable on any of the lots,  and if confined to lots F and 25  Mr. Killam would eventually  find some industrial land on  which to store it. It-was noted  that an offer to re/one lot A  industrial so that lumber storage there would become a  legal use had been rejected  by Mr. Killam. Hc had stated  that he would'nol negotiate  a land use contract based on  terms Ihat would confine  lumber lo lots F and 25. Since  hc doesn't know what lies in  thc future, hc wants to keep  all his options open.  In Mr. Killam's original  proposal to Council to roof  over lumber storage on lot A.  no mention had been made ol  residential use on the roof  except as a recreation area.  Council had been receptive to  that idea, but nol to thc inclusion of apartments. Il was  felt thai since Land Use Contracts arc so complex and  require much lime for negotiation even under favourable  circumstances, Mr. Killam  would be so difficult to deal  with that it would nol be  possible lo conclude one by  June. Therefore it was proposed lo rezonc lots F and 25  to include Lumber storage  until such lime as Mr. Killam  chose to find alternate accommodation for ii.  Il had been suggested that  Mr.   Killam   move   all   his  lumber and building supplies  onto lol A to which.hc had replied that he would have to  proceed as thc economics  dictated. Hc has said that lot A  did not have thc commercial  value thai lol F had and therefore it was the best place for  lumber storage. By so saying.  hc is supporting thc principle  that lumber storage is not a  commercial use.  It was thought that if Mr.  Killam would nol agree to  confining lumber lo Lots F  and 25. Council would have no  alternative but a court action.  A meeting with Mr. Killam  was proposed and discussed.  On thc one hand, an invitation to further discussion  would suggest Ihat Council  is still flexible, On thc other  hand, hc should be given thc  opportunity !o slate his  case, although to dale, hc has  shown no evidence of flexibility on his part. Council  would require a commitment  that   thc   lumber   be   moved  Mr. Killam should be sent  a letter staling thai Council  will rezonc lots F and 25 to  accommodate lumber storage  and that thc lumber must be  moved back after lhc sewer  system is in operation.  There was some discussion  as lo procedure. A resolution  to send such a Idler should be  made at lhc nexl Council  meeting and if Mr. Killam  wants to read hc may do so  at thc succeeding meeting  provided he gives a week's  notice prior lo lhc meeting.  Sechelt  Council  li looks like expert tennis  tuition will soon be available  to all on lhc Sunshine Coast,  Al lasl Wednesday's meeting  of thc Sechell Council Jell  Brown, a long lime and well-  travelled tennis professional,  approached ihe members with  his plan lo begin classes tins  year. To gel the projeel off the  ground Mr. Brown asked  Council io allocate him two  hours a (lav during the week.  He will he making a similar  request of the Gibsons Council  Brown said ihat in talks in  the community he had found  favourable response to Ihe  idea. Il was foreseeable in  his opinion, that if it became  popular enough, then ideas  along thc lines of a covered,  year round court could be considered in thc future.  The instruction could range  from beginner lessons right  up to teacher training, and be  structured io include both  private, single group classes  plus school groups. Projected  fees were SI0-SI2 per hour for  private instruction and 52 per  hour for individuals in groups  of 10 to 12. To slart the ball  rolling. Mr. Brown suggested  that he would be prepared  to hold a free opening clinic.  Thc idea was looked on  favourably by lhc Councillors  and il was suggested thai thc  afternoon hours would be lhc  niosl convenient;  The beginning dale is  expected lo be sometime in  May of ihis year.  Final adoption was given to  the Zoning Amendment Fee  Bylaw number 179. Later in  thc week, however, a letter  was received from lhc Ministry of Municipal Affairs  requesting additional information. This will mean a  further delay until ihe bylaw  can be pul through.  Mr. G. Smith of Bullwinkle  Glass put in a request for the  placemen! of a temporary  trailer beside his business.  The reasoning for a nailer was  thai, any permanent building  would have lo be removed in a  couple of years when the  sewer was pul in through lhal  area. Il was fell by Council  however lhal il permission  wore granted, then il could  constitute a precedent and the  application was turned down.  It was officially proclaimed  that May of ihis year would  again be Family Month. The  Clerk was requested lo contact  Gibsons and the Regional  Board in order to coordinate  iheir participation.

Rather as a  suggestion. We are forced to these  reminiscences by the events on the  Regional Board during this last week.  Last week the Coast News editorialized  about what seemed to be a positive outbreak of commonsense and co-operation  on thc Regional Board. This week's  events make the editorial seem more of a  suggestion than a description.  First we have the ever embattled, ever  crusading Mr. Lee, outraged this time by  the Board's decision to rezone against his  recommendation the north half of D.L.  1410 to Industrial, to facilitate additions  to the Jackson Bros. Log Dump. His outrage is occasioned, he explains, by his  feeling that the Regional Board has ridden roughshod over the wishes of his  constituents. Mr. Lee feels that he has  been elected to represent and interpret  and battle for the wishes of his electorate.  It is an admirable and a democratic  stance.  It is just possible, however, that the  time may be coming when Mr. Lee would  do well to remember the story of the boy  who cried "Wolf" too many times. He  played the trick so often than when one  day as he guarded his flocks a wolf came,  he called for help and no one came.  Mr. Lee's professed position is that of  a guardian of democracy and a champion  of thc underdog and a vigilant advocate  of fiscal restraint. Now these are all  admirable positions but one would be  less than truthful if one did not observe  that they are positions that a variety of  demagogues have also espoused in thc  past.  It is possible that the entire Regional  Board arc as cretinous as Mr. Lee seeks  to present them continually, men lacking  both intelligence and integrity. It is also  possible that they are not. If they are not  then Mr. Lee's continued intransigence  takes another dimension.  Is he a man who seeks only to represent his constituents vigorously? Does  he hope to bring co-operation and commonsense into the council chambers?  Is any man who claims consistently a  monopoly on virtue and intelligence to  be allowed to have his credibility go unquestioned? Does Mr. Lee feel that the  Regional Board concept, under review  by the provincial government this very  year, is a workable concept? If its performance is as consistently shoddy as  Mr. Lee would have us believe it would  appear that he may believe it is not. If  so he should say so as publicly as he says  everything else.  Apart from the motherhood issues  listed above what does Mr. Lee stand for.  Such constant and intense dissatisfaction must spring from some deeply held  philosophic position., Could we have  some further enlightenment, Mr. Lee?  Coercion  The other feature of the Regional  Board's deliberations which seemed  somewhat to lack co-operation was to do  with the upcoming recreation referendum. In that referendum will now be included the costs of the Gibsons Swimming Pool, and so they should be since  many people other than Gibsons taxpayers will undoubtedly make use of a  very attractive facility. The fact remains that it is now included after the  Gibsons Council had refused co-operation  consistently in the past.  On the heels of that, the people of  Area "F" through their representative  Mr. Mulligan have demanded that the  purchase of Soames Hill also be included  in the referendum in retrospect. The  Regional Board demurred largely because the amount of money to be sought  must be kept down. Mr. Mulligan says  that neither he nor thc people of Area  "F" will support the referendum in that  case. A rather unfortunate position it  would seem and smacking of coercion.  The people of thc area showed foresight and wisdom in acquiring Soames  Hill as a park. It is theirs to enjoy. To  try to force it now on to an already large  amount to be sought in referendum with  threats of withdrawal of support if denied  seems to indicate little of commonsense  or co-operation.  from the files of Coast News  nes  -5 YEARS AGO -  Miss Colleen Johnson of Driftwood  Players suggested thc School Board at  lasl week's meeting lhal consideration  be given by the hoard for an in-service  drama workshop for teachers.

A pair of brothers, Jess  and Oliver Coughlin of Vancouver were  on their way to Stillwater by boat. So it  was getting close to St. Patrick's day they  decided to call at Gibsons for a quick  celebration. As thc liquor went down, the  Irish tempers went up as a quarrel ensued. Corporal Morrison parted the  brothers by lodging Oliver in the police  lockup overnight. The brothers assured  the magistrate that Ihcy both enjoyed thc  tiff and were really thc best of friends.  Promising to leave forthwith they were  fined each '5. They proceeded happily on  their way to Stillwater.  Buccaneer Bay, Thormanby Island, 1930's.

By John Burnside  In the Spring of 1966 I  was standing on a piece of  floating wooden sidewalk on  the corner of Queen Street  and Second Avenue in Dawson  City. It was as close as I  could get to the Yukon River  w here the ice had jammed and  sent the muddy water and  giant ice floes up and over  giant ice floes up and over  Front Street and into town.  Across the street from me was  the Downtown Hotel and I was  privileged to witness a moment of pure comic magic.  Hank Dubois, the proprietor of the Hotel was standing mournfully in hip waders  in the door of his hotel with  muddy water three feet deep  running in one door and out  thc other. Behind thc bar in  hip waders was a man called  Eddie Overshoes, thc bartender, dispensing free  booze in the face of calamity.  Across on thc river side of  Front Street was Jack Butter-  worth, proprietor of Butter-  worth's Dry Goods. It was his  custom daily to cross the  street two or three times  a day for a constitutional  whisky. The sidewalks on  Front Street had broken  free and were afloat and in  pieces and thc water deeper  on Butterworlh's side of lhc  street.  "I could sure use a drink.  Hank," called Butterworth, a  lanky and laconic man who  habitually wore a black stetson. "If you can get over  here. Jack, you've got il."  said Dubois. Butterworth  surveyed thai portion of the  river which boiled past the  high steps of his store in  silence for a lew minutes and  turned and disappeared into  thc store. Hc rc-cmerged  in a moment with a long pole  of some kind, commandeered  a piece of floating sidewalk  and poled himself with great  solemnity across the street  for his drink.  It was just one of the unbelievable vignettes from that  flooded Spring. There was a  short and bombastic German  fellow whose name escapes  me. He was generally disliked  for his humourless swagger  and large and dangerous dog.  He was seen striding self  importantly in hip waders on  Second Avenue with his dog  swimming ahead. Unfortunately for his self esteem and  dignity the manhole covers  in   Dawson   City   arc   also  Musings  John Burnside  Slings &  Arrows  George Matthews  wooden and one in his path  under the water had risen up  and floated away on the  tide. The dog swam over it and  he totally disappeared into it  and damn near drowned.  There was a huge ice floe  astride Second Avenue when  the waters went down. I  tried to measure its thickness  standing on tiptoe and to the  full stretch of my arms and  failed. It must have been ten  feet thick. The Yukon River  ferry was left neatly and diagonally parked on Front Street.  When the rising water was  coming fast and it looked like  the whole town might float off  to Alaska, the hospital by the  river front was evacuated.  The man who made the last  run said the huge ice floes  were bumping at the edge  of thc submerged road and the  water washing two thirds of  the way up his wheels and  rising rapidly.  When it was at its worse  all but the north east quarter  of the town was under water  and the old men and women  from the Sunset Home on  Fifth Avenue had been evacuated to the second floor of  thc Post Office. I made thc  last check on thc home in my  pick up truck. Returning,  I came to a stop sign on the  submerged road and conditioning made mc stop.  Allan limes Taylor paddled  his canoe across thc intersection before me with his  little black dog swimming  strongly behind him. I had a  camera on thc scat beside me  and somewhere in thc chaos of  my possessions is an incredible picture taken through the  front window of the truck, of  thc intersection, thc stop sign,  and thc canoe crossing with  following dog.  They bombed the ice jam  and thc water went down  as quickly as it had risen,  leaving most of the houses in  town with everything in them  covered in three or four feet  of Yukon River silt. Our house  on the corner of Fifth Avenue  and Queen Street by the Post  Office was fortunately spared,  the water at its height just  reaching one corner. The  whole drama was crammed  into one incredible half day.  The river and the ice may  well have a starring role in  the Dawson City drama of  Spring but they are by no  means thc whole show. Thc  performance takes place in  May and by May in Dawson  City the days are almost  twenty hours long and the sun  for which one has starved  all winter just never stops  shining. The green comes  magically and suddenly to  the hillsides and the crocuses  are blooming side by side and  simultaneous with the wild  roses of early summer. And  water, apart from flooding  towns, is trickling everywhere  How to express thc inexpressible sweetness of the  sound of running water when  its voice has been stilled for  a full half year.  Wc coincide this week with  thc Spring Equinox and while,  as I said last year, thc music  of Spring comes gcntlicr here  and without the attendant  pent-up passion of the north  it is nonetheless unmistakably  and magically Spring. The  warmth is in the sunlight and  all thc natural world stirs to  glorious life. To be alive  in such a beautiful place-  as this at such a time as this  is to be rich indeed. May your  sidewalks be stationary and  crocuses bedeck your lawn.  By George Matthews  Let mc tell you friends.  I've seen some shabby stunts  in my time but Francis Berger's latest gambit has to be  the lowest.  For those of you who don't  know about the "running"  skirmish between Mrs. Berger  and myself, let me fill you in.  Some few months back Mrs.  Berger, the director of thc  Sunshine Coast Fitness Service attacked my cavalier  attitude towards fitness and  health. I countered by challenging the lady to a jogging  contest to be run from Gibsons  to Sechelt on April 1. Since  that time there has been a  constant jockeying for psychological advantage and last  week my opponent scraped  the bottom of the tactical  barrel in a last ditch effort lo  "psych" me. Well it won't  work Mrs. Berger, you've  played your last card.  As everyone who has read  her column knows, Mrs.  Bergcr is a brown and spindly  middle-aged woman with blue-  tinted hair and canvas tennis  shoes, who takes great pleasure in wheedling and nagging  physical degenerates like myself into taking better care of  their all-thickened bodies.  She is in fact the Mother Tunis  of wheat germ and yogurt. I  know that, you know that. So  you can imagine my surprise-  when last week I was confronted outside my office by a  tall, slim, strong and surprisingly beautiful young woman  who introduced herself to  me as Mrs. Francis Berger.  I've always prided myself on  my ability to remain calm and  aloof in the face of an obvious puton. So, suprcssing  the urge to giggle wildly at  such an overtly ridiculous play  1 went along with the joke.  A light exists in Spring  A light exists in spring  Not present on Ihe year  At any other period.  When Mureh is scarcely here.  A color stands abroad  On solitary hills  That science cannot overtake.  Bul human nature feels.  It waits upon the lawn;  It shows the furthest tree  Upon    the   furthest   slope    h  /(almost speaks to me.  Then, as horizons step.  Or noons repori away.  Without Ihe formula of sound.  It passes, and we stay:  A quality of loss  Affecting our content.  As trade had suddenly encroached  Upon a sacrament.  Emily Dickinson ',  know:  I must admil that this  bronzed Diana played her role-  very well. With not a hint of  embarrassment she launched  into her opinions on the  logistics of "our" run. Only  thc mischievous twinkle in  her eye betrayed for a moment  the game she was playing.  This surrogate Mrs. Bergcr  even told mc how much slit-  had been looking forward to  meeting me. I was myself  even beginning lo enjoy the  little joke thai the real Francis  was playing on me. The aerobic granny had obviously sent  along this athletic young  woman in an effort to make me  chicken out of our run.  It didn't lake long for the  joke to take on a more sinister  character however, when I  realized that the real Mrs.  Bergcr intended to carry thc  thing through even io the  point of having thc "ringer"  actually run the race for her. I  was almost overcome by a  moment of sickening panic;  but regaining my composure  quickly I began carefully,  with subtle skill to unmask  this imposter. In my most  suave and decorous language  I carefully began to sirip  away the mask of ihis employee of my nemesis.  "Docs your mother know  you're out?" I intoned sincerely .  Nothing. Nol thc slightest  faltering of the big ingenuous  brown eyes.  "What's a nice girl like  you doing in a race like ihis.'".  I continued, by ihis lime  beginning lo Ihrow camion lo  thc wind.  "You say lhc most amusing  things Mr. Matthews", thc  bionic wood nymph retorted.  "Do you speak lo your slu-  dents that way?"  I knew she had inc. It was  obvious that this round would  go to the devious Mrs. Bergcr  who was probably silting at  home tatting and chuckling to  both herself and lhc cat on her  lap. It was a humiliating experience. 1 only bring it to  your attention now in an effort  to appeal to the sense of  justice and chivalry in thc  community which will clearly  be outraged by this insidious  plot. The only recourse I have  at his point is to appeal to as  many healthy citizens as I can  to come out and run thc  course with us on thc morning  of April 1, so that they can  witness the sly cunning of the  real Mrs. Bergcr. wherever  she mavbe. Hasn't anyone told the new guy that we only have to  distribute them?!  Coast News, March 21,1978.  LETTERS  Kay White  Editor:  The family of Kay White,  whose brave battle ended March  15 in St. Paul's Hospital, would  like to take this opportunity to  thank those whose well wishes  brought great happiness to our  dear wife and mother during her  last months, and to all those  whose sympathy has made the  past week easier for ourselves  to bear.  Although fully aware of the  facts from thc time her illness  began, to thc last day of her life  Kay White remained the cheerful, hopeful, self-sacrificing soul  those who were* close to her loved  so well. Fortunately she did not  suffer serious discomfort and  faced death with repose that was  a very moving and beautiful thing  to behold. She showed neither  fear nor regret and her last  spoken thought was typically for  others; "It's alright. Don't feel  bad."  Once again, our sincerest  thanks to all those who share in  our loss. She was not an ostentatious person and wished at all  costs that "nobody make a fuss",  but we have decided to have an  informal "at-home" gathering in  her memory thc afternoon of Saturday, March 25 and we hope all  her friends will come.  The Family of Kay White  Jack & Jill  Editor:  Thank you for your excellent  coverage of Jack and Jill  Playschool's relocation. Your  interest in Jack A: Jill is  greatly appreciated and I'm  sure that it will spark other  interested members of the  community to come to our  Open House and sec the reasons wc arc so happy with  our new setting. We oilly  wish that everyone could  see how positively the children  have reacted to it.  Wc would also like to extend an overwelming appreciation lo Inge and Dave  Harrison for Iheir pari in the  total organization of thc relocation. Without their unselfish devotion to the project  it would nol have happened  as quickly as il did. Thank  vou.

Sandy Hook complains  (Editor:  As members of the Sandy  Hook Property Association and  the Tuwanek Ratepayer's Association it is our desire to clarify any  issues which could provide  possible misconceptions owing to  our opposition to the rezoning of  Jackson Bros, logging operation  in West D.L. 1410 from the existing R-2 nonconforming zone to  that of the newly-created 1-5 zone.  Without the rezoning of this  district lot, an impression has  been created that there could be a  possible loss of employment.  However, we would like to point  out that Jackson Bros, logging  has been in operation at its  Tuwanek log-dump site since  1963. During the past seven years  this log dump operation has  been carried out in a R-2 nonconforming zone (By-Law #35,  passed in 1971), and has operated  in a successful manner without  any acknowledged loss of jobs.  One of our reasons for opposition to the rezoning of this parcel  of land was its nebulous future  useage as envisioned by Mr.  Jackson. At the Public Hearing of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board last December 12th,  1977. Mr. Jackson stated that the  reason for rezoning was (as read  in the minutes),..."simply...  to legitimize existing activities  ...".and when asked whether his  intention was to move the Wilson  Creek operation to the Tuwanek  area, the minutes of this meeting  read:���"He did not have a definite plan to expand the Tuwanek  operation or to take over the  Wilson Creek operation." If  Jackson Bros, logging intention is  to operate in the manner that Mr.  Jackson has described at that  Public Hearing, there is manouv-  erability within the existing R-2  non-conforming zone at present.  It escapes and puzzles us as to  why he requires any change in  zoning. An R-2 zoning is our only  insurance against any future development after Jackson Bros,  ownership.  Our objection is not directed to  Mr. Jackson but to the future  use of that beautiful area of land  in the many years to come. The  subdivisions of Tuwanek and  Sandy Hook are permanent,  whereas Jackson Bros, logging  operations are, in all likelihood, a  terminal situation of an unknown  time period. What the future of  the North half of D.L. 1410 after  Jackson Bros, leave is of prime  concern to the permanent subdivisions of Sandy Hook and of  Tuwanek.  The property owners of both of  our long-standing communities  (Sandy Hook, established in the  I940's, and Tuwanek. established  in 1957). invested in their properties with the knowledge of the  then-existing Lamb's Bay log-  sorting operation. Further investment continued after Jackson  Bros, purchased their property in  1963, as these communities had  the protection of the R-2 zoning  regulation, when it was established in 1971. As this Jackson  Bros, property is situated adjacent to our communities, any  contemplation of rezoning would  seem to contravene the Municipal  Act���702(2), and the authorities  should take into consideration  "....the preservation of the amenities peculiar to any zone",  and "the preservation of property  values". Any rezoning also would  seem to be in dispute of Sunshine  Coast Regional District By-Law  No. 109 (Seehelt Vicinity Official  Regional flan), area designation  7.2.4. to wlllt:  East Porpoise Bay  "The suburban areas t  Tuwanek and Sandy Hook ar  designated as such.

We would like to make it very  clear thai wc do not oppose  industry on thc Sunshine Coast.  We recognize and acknowledge  that thc future potential and  development of this entire area  depends upon the co-existence of  residential communities, commerce, tourism and industry.  To accomplish this, we suggest  there must be a cohesive plan  for industry placement in perhaps  industrial bank lands, and not in  sporadic spot localities, intermingled with residential communities. Thc nurture of tourism  as a viable economic industry on  this Sunshine Coast depends on  our asset of beautiful water-  frontage, not the least of which is  thc entire Sechell Inlet. Protection of this waterfront should be  of prime concern wherever rezoning to industry is contemplated. Guide-lines have already  been outlined in By-Law #109.  the Regional Plan.  As Jackson Bros, logging operation has operated successfully  under the present zoning regulation for seven years, and since  Mr. Jackson has stated that it is  not his intent to increase the present operation, and as we do not  have a complaint with Jackson  Bros, limited operations, and as  we do not wish to put them out  of business, we feel that the operation can exist without necessity  of rezoning and without any loss  of jobs. However, we feel we do  not have any obligation to whoever operates after Jackson Bros,  in North-half of D.L. #1410.

EEXXXXXXXZSj  POTLINF.  Apart from the malfunctioning fans, everything seems to  be running smoothly. Thankful for small mercies, we duck  into the closest lunchroom  and collapse in a couple of  the wooden armchairs that  line the walls. Thc place  smells of soot, sweat, tobacco-  smoke and orange-peels but  at least you can breathe without a mask. Luigi tails almost  immediately asleep. Now 1  have the chance for a proper  nap, I'm suddenly and an-  noyingly wide-awake. I gaze  about the bleak neon-lit  room. About half lhc chairs  are occupied by potline-  workers taking rest-breaks,  Some are asleep. Others  thumb through foreign papers  or skin-books and converse  in a variety of different  languages. The workforce of  the plant is a regular league  of nations. Less than five  percent are native Canadians.  The rest hail from half the  countries of Europe. Thc  production-crews are made up  largely of Portugese and  Greeks. The mechanical department is dominated by  better-educated Germans,  some of whom make no secret  of their continuing pro-Nazi  sympathies. The Immigration  Department must have been  asleep at the switch when  they let those characters  through. For all I know,  Martin Borman's hiding  out somewhere around this  place.  I sip tepid cocoa from the  erratic vending-machine and  light a cigarette, cursing the  Pages from a  Life  -Log  Peter Trower  second-wind that's stung me  alert. Relaxed Luigi snores  blissfully. Across thc room,  a small slumped man comes  suddenly awake and gazes  about blinking. It's Eddie  Firth, a crane-operator I've  drunk with a couple of times  at the local bar. I'm not too  stuck on his company - he's  given to talking Incessantly  and saying very little - but  he spots me and comes over.  "Hey. did you hear about the  deal over in Line Two today?"  "Not a word." I say, trying  to feign some interest.  "Well, seems there's a  big Greek running crust-  breaker there that goes for  boys. The line-foreman on  his shift's a Limey ��� little  blonde-haired guy - you must  have seen him around. Anyhow this Greek, he's got a  crush on the goddamn Englishman - must have been  packin' a torch for months.  Finally he flips-out completely. Way I heard it, he  runs into the guy's office and  starts chasing him around  the desk just like a boss  chasin' his secretary in one  of them cartoons. Right off  his goddamn nut. Must have  scared hell out of the little  Limey!"  ^ Lllm.mth  flrvines Landing^  Marina  Restaurant  I  DUE TO  UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES:  The Irvine's Landing Marina Restaurant  is temporarily closed.  NOT TO WORRY HOWEVER!  We will be open again before long!  The Marina and Camp  Grounds  are still in operation.  "Jesus," I laugh, picturing  the ludicrous pursuit, "What  the hell happened? Did he  catch him?"  "Nah. The Limey scooted  out thc door and hollered for  help. Some of the other  Greeks got thc big guy  calmed down. Guess he'll  gct canned for sure but I  wonder what in hell they'll  put for the reason?"  "God only knows!"  That's Eddie's main piece  of gossip for the night. He  rambles on about potline  scuttlebut of a less-scatalogi-  cal nature and 1 begin to lose  interest. 1 grunt a response  every so often but I'm starting  to feel tired again and take  little of it in. The door opens  and I look up in case it's our  shiftboss but it's only the  line-foreman. "Hey Eddie,  we need the crane."  "Yeah, okay Cliff," he  grumbles. "Well, we'll see  you,eh?"  "See you, Eddie." He goes  out with the foreman. I close  my eyes and begin to drift.  Sleeping on shift is an art  I've never been able to master  properly. I seldom manage  to achieve more than a shallow  coma at the best of times.  Knowing you might be called  out on a repair-job any moment is hardly conducive to  restful slumber. Tonight  however, the tiredness returns and I conk-out utterly.  I float into a pleasant jumbled  dream involving Helga, a  German girl I'm currently  seeing and an odd assortment  of   characters > from   various  periods of the past. It's just  starting to get interesting  when I'm shaken back to  industrial    realities. It's  Luigi.  "What's up?" I mutter  groggily.  "Shit-a-goddamn, son!"  says a voice, "Snap out of  it. You've got a crane down  on Four A."  It's McGraw, our worry-  wart of a new shift-foreman.  Hc habitually uses that odd  folksy expletive. McGraw's  some kind of failed farmer  from Saskatchewan, a large  childish man with an inordinate respect for the work-  ethic. Hc gazes down on us  like a disappointed football-  coach. I swear he's going to  tell us that we're letting down  the team or something equally  as corny but he merely implies this by shaking his  head as he goes out the door.  "Let's go," says Luigi  worriedly. Sleeping in the  lunchrooms is a universal  practice around the plant  during slack shifts but it's  still officially against the  rules.  "Figure he'll report us?"  "Maybe he do. I don't  know. He say I should have  phoned in to let him know  where we are."  "Ah, he'll probably let it  pass," I venture uncertainly.  For the second time that  night, we don our rubber  pig-snouts and strike off  along an outside passage past  the burning black tombs of  the pots. It's the same old  smoky movie and we play our  parts duitifully. Amazingly  its still only five-thirty. I  sure couldn't have slept very  long but feel much the better  for it anyhow. I'm psyched  back into the fantasy that  sustains my morale in this  glum smelter. Luigi and I  are no longer mere millwrights - we're intrepid  adventurers off to rescue a  Classical music  Eric Doolittle, cellist, and Susan Elek, pianist, will join forces  to present a programme of classical music on Saturday, March 18  at 7:00 p.m. in the Sechelt Elementary School Gym.  The program will consist of the  Vivaldi Cello Sonata in B sharp  major, the Prelude from the Bach  unaccompanied Cello Suite in  C minor, the first movement of  the Mozart Piano Sonata K457  and the Beethoven A major Cello  Sonata.  Eric Doolittle, cellist, is currently leading the cello section  of the U.B.C. orchestra. He is a  student  of  Ian   Hampton  who  plays with the Purcesll String  Quartet of Vancouver. Eric has  appeared with the Calgary Symphony Orchestra and has played  in the National Youth Orchestra.  Susan Elek, pianist, has studied music at the University of  Toronto and graduated with a music degree from the University  of Western Ontario. She is currently a student of Bob Silverman  who is one of Canada's foremost  pianists. In addition to studying  herself, she teaches piano in  Sechelt.  The Vivaldi sonata consists  of the usual four movements,  each one contrasting with the one  Ellingham  Twilight Theatre  The worlds of professional  football and the theatre are thc  background for thc two fine films  coming to the Twilight Theatre  this week, and some of filmdom's  best known performers are strutting their stuff in them.  Kris Kristoffcrson and Burt  Reynolds are teamed up as a  couple of likeable rascals who  play football for a living in  Semi-Tough. They play Billy  Clyde Puckett and Shake Tiller  in the film which is based on Dan  Jenkins' popular novel of the  same name.  Both stars acknowledge that  had they been able to they would  have made professional football  their life. "At one time football was thc most important  thing in my life." says Kristoffcrson . Reynolds was actually  an all-Florida running back while  at university. "I would have been  a great football pro," hc says.  "but I wasn't big enough or  fast enough or good enough."  Semi-Tough will he shown at  the Twilight Theatre Wednesday  through Saturday. March 22-25.  Glenda Jackson is thc star of  The Incredible Sarah which will  be shown Sunday through Tues  day. March 2t>28. The two-  time Oscar winner again delivers  a smashing performance in the  difficult title role. Sarah Bernhardt was one of the world's  greatest actresses. She was also  headstrong and selfish and Jackson captures the spirit of the  woman and the actress in her  portrayal.  The story is a free adaptation  of thc Bernhardt legend by Ruth  Wolff. Sarah is shown in her  early struggles on the French  stage, going through a few of  her many notorious love affairs,  and reaching her eventual fame.  Interspersed throughout the proceedings arc several vignettes  from her greatest successes  which offer Jackson the opportunity to display her wide range of  talent. Thc production is handsomely mounted ;;nd thc superb  production and costume designs  enhance thc central portrait.  Director Richard Fleischer gets  admirable supporting acting from  Daniel Massey as the playwright  Sardou, Bridget Armstrong as  a scorned actress, John Castle  as thc oily lover, and especially  Margaret Courtenay as a jealous  actress. One not to be missed.  following it. Vivaldi, best known  for "The Four Seasons" wrote  some of the happiest music ever  written. In this work his quick,  lively movements are interspersed with movements of a  more reticent, melancholy character.  Johann Sebastian Bach celebrated the wide range of sonorities of the cello which was beginning to replace its more subdued relative, the viola da gamba.  by writing a set of six suites for  solo cello. These suites are at thc  core of the cello literature as are  his Well Tempered Clavier of  the piano literature. The fifth  suite is written in Ihe key of C  minor, a key which throughout  music literature has been cm-  ployed in some of the most important musical statements ever  1978 TORO LAWN MOWERS  r*\ARE HEREL  (TWILIGHT  (THEATRE?  886-2827  GIBSONS  CHAIN SAW SALES & SERVICE  see these popular makes  uj+)    '   *      Pioneer  Husqvarna    Poulan        Stihl       McCulloch  Oregon Saw Chains & Grand Berg accessories for the Wood Cutter  HFl'Suncoasl  'J.Po.wer &  Marine **���  Cowrie Street Sechelt 885-9626  made (such as Beethoven's fifth  symphony, his Pathctique Sonata and his last piano sonata.  op.III).  The Mozart Sonata, also in the  key of C minor, is special not  only for its key but because it is  linked to thc C minor Fantasie.  The fantasie is a form in music  which composers used when they  needed more freedom than sonata  form could afford them to express  what they had to say. The C  minor sonata is a dramatic work  which, according to thc music  historian Donald J.Grout, was the  model for Beethoven's Pathctique  Sonata.  The last work on the program,  the Beethoven A major Cello  Sonata is a four movement work  which affords thc two instruments  equal partnership in sharing thc  material. Thc statements made  by thc cello arc taken up and repeated or elaborated upon by the  piano and vice versa. The dialogue often culminates in a unison statement of a theme, the  cello and piano becoming one to  support each other in their statements.  Astrology  *  By Rae Ellingham  Week    Commencing    March  20th.  General Notes:  This month's Full Moon is a  Lunar Eclipse and falls in Libra.  It focuses on relationship problems which have been allowed to  accumulate unfairly. The balance  now has to be restored. Mercury  and Venus opposing Pluto are a  further indication of upcoming  power struggles, verbal joustings  and emotional tug o'wars. May  the best person win.  Neptune is stationary on thc  20th indicating a day of general  muddles and confusion. Sea-  related events, oil and gas leaks  often make thc headline< during  this phenomenon.

LEO (Jul, 2.1-Aug 22)  Emphasis is still on communications from near and far. One  short journey, message or phone  call could alter plans drastically.  Love affairs become confusing.  Extricate yourself now or prepare to sink deeper. Escaping is  hard and you know why.  VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22)  Spotlight is on your money and  personal possessions. Hold on  to them. Others are out to beg,  steal or borrow. You have to say  'no' and mean it. Domestic life  is subject to impractical arrangements and confusion. Tax and  insurance matters need extra  attention.  LIBRA (Sepl 23-Oct 23)  The Full Moon in Libra highlights your mannerisms and personality. How you appear to  others is now affecting your personal progress.

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)  Accent is on being alone to analyse your recent motives and behaviour. You now have to face  and accept your limitations.  Recent tranquility on thc work  scene is broken up by unexpected  harsh words. Financial affairs  become confusing on the 20th.  Hospitals and institutions figure  stronglv.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dcc 21)  As your long-range hopes and  wishes begin to show signs of  promise, thc urge to take further  risks will he tempting. Intense  discussions with friends and colleagues are long overdue and  should cleat thc air. Those born  around December 10th should  tolerate calmly present muddles  and confusion as thc fog will  lift soon.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19)  It's time to fight for your  position and reputation as others  have thc check to take credit for  your recent achievements. Don't  back down. Extra domestic  activity    continues. Strange  dreams reveal thc hidden truth.  An old friend in seclusion is now  rcadv for a phone call or visit.  AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)  Happy journeys and visits  continue but beware overstaying  your welcome. Your present  philosophy and ideas could be  flatly rejected as boring but  don't gct upset. Be warned  that an acquaintance is out to  deceive you. Long distance  messages are delivered at last.

Sechelt Pipe Band showed up at the Cedars Inn in Gibsons last week to help cele-  brate St.Patrick's Dav.  From the Cab Stand  By John Moore  I'm picking up where I  left off last week, with the  radio, ostensibly the oracle of  Biziniz, God of the Airwaves,  and tncidently a source of endless entertainment. The  greater percentage of business in taxis is repeat business, people who take taxis  all the time. This is as true in  the city as it is on the Sunshine  Coast. Inevitably the regular  drivers become quite familiar  with the affairs of the people  whose addresses they know  from memory. One considerable source of repeat  business in the city is what I  will call the "ladies of negotiable virtue." The relationship between the drivers and  these ladies is an odd one. A  kind of undefined bond exists,  since both are involved in  what are essentially service  industries, but, contrary to  popular belief, their relationship is usually strictly a  business one. Both have an  acute sense of the value of  time and money. A free ride  from either is rarer than a  rooster's back molars.  Their relationship is complicated by suspicion. Suspicious  by nature, the ladies are  aware that the drivers know  their business, and they are  also aware that the police  occasionally use the taxi  companies to keep track of  the movements of individuals.  There have even been rumours of undercover policemen  posing as taxi drivers, taking  trips and talking to the other  drivers, just to keep a finger  on the pulse of the city. One  thing the ladies detest is a  driver who indulges in sniggering, presumptuous familiarity. He's apt to get a black  eye in lieu of fare, or at least  acquire some exotic additions  to his already colourful vocabulary, A driver quickly learns  to hear, see and speak no  evil  Still, the regular drivers  unavoidably come to recognize  certain addresses to and from  which a considerable volume  of traffic may be expected.  Often this traffic is in the form  of deliveries of cigarettes,  liquor and mixers, the usual  accessories to human recreation. Nothing to raise an eye  brow over. For all you know  they're hosting the lnter-city  Mixed Doubles Tiddlywinks  Tournament. And then one  night when it's quiet on the  air and all the drivers are  gagging on horrible take-out  coffee and waiting for a trip,  (any trip, even a comatose  drunk who can't remember  where he lives), the dispatcher  comes on the air and says,  "Car such and such, a delivery to this address," and  gives the familiar numbers.  The driver's ears automatically perk up as the dispatcher  asks the lucky one if he has a  pencil. This is going to be a  big one. Might even be  interesting. The driver has a  pencil. The dispatcher takes  a deep breath and begins;  "Go to a store and pick up a  cantaloupe, a large head of  lettuce, a quart of cranberry  cocktail, an aerosol can of  whipped cream and a pair of  rubber gloves..." The last  part comes out a bit strangled  as the dispatcher tries to  maintain her deadpan delivery  A chorus of clicks from the  mike buttons of other cars,  (the drivers' form of applause)  rends the airwaves as the  bewildered voice replies,  "Where am I going to get all  that stuff at this time of  night?" That's how jaded a  driver can get. It never  occurred to him to speculate  about what they might be  going to do with all that stuff  once he'd delivered it. It made  for an interesting evening  though. The driver had to  drive all over town to acquire  some of the articles. The trip  became a kind of Mystery  Treasure Hunt and the rest of  us listened in as he made  progress reports from time to  time, coming on the air to  announce triumphantly,  'I've got the lettuce and the  rubber gloves I Does anyone  know where I can get a cantaloupe at three o'clock in the  morning?"  I once worked for a company  whose evening dispatcher had  become a radio dictator.  This is a form of taxi-madness  which strikes dispatchers,  usually when they've been  working for too long without a  holiday. This fellow had gone  fourteen months without a  break and became an airwave  fascist. Most dispatchers  allow and engage in a certain  amount of good-natured  banter on the air. It doesn't  interfere with efficiency; it  improves it by making the job  a little more pleasant. This  character used to put drivers  Code Two for the slightest  infraction. (He eventually  fixed his own wagon. One  night a couple of drivers got  out of line and he sent half  a dozen drivers home before  midnight. He failed to notice  that two of those drivers were  the graveyard shift for that  night.)  He was dispatching one  evening when it was very  quiet. I was sitting on the cab  stand, in another driver's  cab, when the dispatcher  curtly gave out a trip to  another cab. The driver I was  with mentioned that the  address in West Vancouver  was a house where a party  involving members of the cab  company staff was in progress  In a short time, another cab  was dispatched to the same  address. Presently the first  cab announced his destination  ���the west end of Vancouver.  Then things got lively. The  first cab was driven by a  friend of mine. His passenger  was the girlfriend of one of the  company managers, who incidentally owned the cab in  which she was riding. The  second cab was driven by  a driver we called Hot Wheels  and who seemed to regard  the job as a kind of apprenticeship for the Daytona 500. His  passenger was the company  brass who owned the first cab  and who'd had a fight with his  girlfriend. He didn't seem to  appreciate the irony in the fact  that she'd got the last word by  absconding in his taxi, for in  no time he'd taken over the  radio of the second cab and  begun haranguing her and the  driver with dire threats and  intoxicated entreaties. What  he didn't know was that his  girlfriend had anticipated him  and turned off the radio in  the first cab when she got in.  Punctuated by outbursts on  the radio, in the background  of which thc sounds of roaring engines and squealing  tires could clearly be heard, a  high-speed car chase ensued  along thc  highway,   Marine  DO IT YOURSELF KITS inground or above  SWIMMING POOLS  INGROUND        INSTALLED        ABOVE GROUND  ���Sold  'Serviced  *AII Chemicals  Whirl Pools  Spa's  Hot Tubs  Jaccuzzi  Saunas  Some facts about herbicides  The other face of 2,4-D  Editor's Note: At a time when  B.C.Hydro Is again applying to  spray the powerllnes on the  Sechelt Peninsula with 2,4-D and  2,4,5-T we feel that the following  book report would be of Interest  to readers.  THE OTHER FACE OF 2,4-D  PARTI  Book Report By  Richard Tamoff  Eurasian Water Milfoil, a  perennial plant that grows in  fresh water, is spreading  through the Okanagan Basin.  Since it grows near beaches in  summer tourist areas it is considered a problem. In May  1977 the B.C.government appointed a three-man advisory  committee and began public  hearings into the control of  Milfoil. This committee eventually recommended a program of eradication which  included the application of the  phenoxy herbicide 2,4-D into  Okanagan Lake. This prospect disturbed a large number  of residents. They formed a  group called the South Okanagan Environmental Coalition,  and began their own study of  2,4-D and its effect on the  environment. The result,  The Other Face of 2,4-D, is  a review of over two hundred  published studies and articles  on the phenoxy herbicides.  In this report I will review the  topics covered in The Other  Face of 2,4-D. All quotes and  page numbers refer to that  publication although many are  also quotes from original  sources.  PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO  CONTROL MILFOIL  The most determined effort  using chemical methods was  in the Tennessee Valley Authority, a man-made lake system  in the United States. One of  these, Guntersville Lake in  Alabama, provides an example of the results. In 1969 the  lake contained 14,000 acres of  milfoil. By applying 20-40  pounds of 2,4-D per acre the  infested area was reduced  to 3,000 acres by 1973. Even  though the treatment was continued every year, by 1976 the  milfoil acreage had increased  to around 12,000 acres.  In Southern Ontario government officials looked at these  records and decided it wasn't  worth the cost to try and eradicate the plant. Instead they  began harvesting them. So  far the most successful approaches have been to utilize  the  milfoil as  roughage  in  Drive, and over the bridge,  while the dispatcher apoplec-  tically screamed, "Are you in  control of your vehicle!?  Are you in control of your  radio!?" and business came to  a total halt as the rest of the  fleet sat huddled around their  radios as though savouring  the latest episode of the Green  Hornet. Stay tuned for the  conclusion of this exciting  episode, next week. Over and  Out.  cattle feed and as an ingredient in manufactured compost.  GOVERNMENTAL      SAFEGUARDS  In Okanagan Lake the advisory committee recommended that herbicides should not  be applied in swimming areas,  nor within 500 meters of any  potable water intake system or  any irrigation intake. Both of  these recommendations were  ignored by the provincial  government (1-9).  The formulation of 2,4���D  used in Okanagan Lakes is  called Aqua-Klcen and is  manufactured by Amchem.  This product has been registered by the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency for  use in the control of Eurasian  Water milfoil. Applicators are  warned not to apply the herbicide within one half mile of  potable water intakes. The  only other warning is that  "fish and other aquatic organisms may be killed at application rates recommended on  this label." Aqua-Kleen is  also registered for use in  Canada. The Control Products  Section of the Federal Department of Agriculture limits  Aqua-Kleen and fifteen other  aquatic herbicides as follows:  "do not apply to waters used  for irrigation, agricultural  sprays, watering dairy animals or domestic water supplies". When this restriction  became known the B.C.Ministry of the Environment consulted with the control products section which responded  by lifting the labelling restrictions on Aqua-Kleen for  use by the Province of B.C. in  the Okanagan Lakes for  1977.(1-15.16)  TERATOGENIC      EFFECTS  (BIRTH DEFECTS)  A report prepared by the  Commission on Pesticides  and Their Relationship to  Environmental Health for the  U.S.Department of Health,  Education and Welfare in  1969 found that 2,4-D caused  birth deformities, and a high  rate of fetal deaths in both  mice and rats. (11-3)  Shortly afterwards researchers at the U.S. National  Institute of Environmental  Health Sciences (NIEHS)  also began laboratory testing  of the phenoxy herbicides.  Both 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T were  found to produce significant  teratogenic effects. (II-5)  At this time it was learned  that the formulations of 2,4,5-  T which had been used contained high concentrations (30  parts per million) of tetra-  chlorodibenze-p-dioxin (TC  DD), a substance believed to  be . extremely teratogenic.  This discovery led to more  testing with "purified"  herbicides. The Dow Chemical Company, NIEHS, and the  U.S.Food and Drug Administration, produced reports of  testing 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T  (containing less than one part  per million TCDD) on mice,  TYEE AIR  Announces  Additional Service  To  Downtown Vancouver  NOW  5 RETURN FLIGHTS  Per Day  effective April 3,1978  Leaves Sechelt  Leaves Vancouver Hbr.  7:00a.m.  7:45 a.m.  9:45 a.m.  11:45 a.m.  3:45 p.m.  7:30 a.m.  8:30a.m.  10:30a.m.  12:30p.m.  4:30p.m.  For Further Information  Phone  885-2214  rats and hamsters. These  all confirmed that the phenoxy  herbicides produced teratogenic effects even with very  low levels of TCDD.(II-S)  In Canada, the Food and  Drug Directorate of the Department of National Health  and Welfare tested 2,4-D  and reported in 1971 that all  formulations of 2,4-D tested  produced birth defects in rats.  Most recently the U.S.  Environmental Protection  Agency has been retesting  2,4-D. The results again  showed birth deformities. Of  particular concern was thc  finding that "the greatest  effects of 2,4-D were produced  at the low doses administered  over long time periods".  (11-10)  Since there has been strong  evidence for ten years that  2,4-D causes birth defects in  laboratory animals why is it  still available? The author  suggests a number of reasons.  Producers often attack testing  procedures. A common approach is to say that research  on mice and rats has no relationship to humans. In actuality it is now well established  by the authorities in the field  that testing with laboratory  animals is appropriate to the  human experience. (11-12)  Also the effects of a substance  on humans may be many  times more potent. In the case  of thalidomide (the sleeping  pill which was found to cause  birth deformities in humans),  "humans are sixty times more  sensitive than mice, one hundred times more sensitive  than rats, two hundred times  more sensitive than dogs and  tunes   mure  hamsters."  reason    v\ hy  unrestricted  seven hundred  sensitive than  (11-12)  The main  2,4-D is still ^^^���.  seems to be the existence of  2,4.5-T and its containment  TCDD.

Language Arts Guide distributed  by the Ministry of Education,  a program of "continuous  progress." We often tend to  think of the program as beginning magically in Kindergarten and terminating in  Grade 12. In fact, the Kindergarten child comes to  school having had several  years of experience in the use  of Language Arts. How extensive this experience has  been will determine, quite  often, how prepared he/she  is for the formal instruction  that ususally begins in Grade  1.  Basically, Language Arts  consists of four areas - Reading and Listening (i.e. the  reception of information),  Speaking and Writing (i.e.  the giving of information).  The child's progress or lack  of progress in the school  Language Arts program will  depend on a number of factors. These include the  child's age, maturity and  physical development; his/her  speech, vocabulary and language, (i.e. the ability to  express themselves clearly);  his/her past social experiences and, very importantly,  their motivation to learn.  How can parents help?  Thc answer that most Primary  teachers would give to this  question is "Read to them".  Positive associations with  reading are formed when  families read together. It's  important too. though, that  the child see his/her parents  reading for their own enjoyment. The child needs to  see that you consider reading  important enough to take the  time to do it. What you do  about reading, says a lot more  to your children than what  you say about reading. Reading should be seen to be a  natural, useful and enjoyable  activity.  The   pre-school   age   child  Long time resident dies\  Ethel Mary McQueen of,  the Sunshine Coast Highway  died in St. Josephs Hospital,  Comox, March 6, after a short  illness in her 83rd year.  Cremation was by the Memorial Society. Memorial service was in Courtenay. She  was predeceased by her husband John McQueen in 1965.  Ethel Mary McQueen was  another old timer of this area.  She was born in England in  1895. She had worked hard  since the age of 14 in housework, coming from England to  Gibsons to marry John  McQueen in 1924. They lived  on a small ranch where  she helped plant gardens,  saw wood and search for  cows, things a city person  would know nothing about.  She always had a smile and a  prayer at night.  In depression years, like  most women, she had to make  clothes out of near nothing for  her   four   daughters.    The  youngest children being  Gibsons first twins. The four  girls were all born in thc small  family home, delivered by Dr.  Inglis.  Mrs. McQueen was a very  kind person and could be seen  sharing fruits, vegetables  and meat from a cow butchered to friends and neighbours. She wanted no frills  even in later years. Any  thought of a washing machine  and water in the house was  ridiculous. About six years  ago she finally consented to  have a cold water tap in the  house.  She lived in the same house  until Oct. 1977. Then she  spent her last fine months  with her second daughter in  Cumberland. Still longing  for her old place, but being  quite content to have an  easy life. Mrs. McQueen was  much loved by her four daughters, Amy Jacobson, Mary  Mottl, Joan Ncwsham and  Jean Day, her four son-in-laws  18 grandchildren and 13  great grandchildren and every  one who knew her.  ALL  SPORTS  Marine  Inc.  can be encouraged to "read"  from picture books, i.e. to  tell the story as he/she interprets it from the pictures.  Clear speech, a good  vocabulary and the ability to  express himself/herself  clearly is a necessity for  success in Language Arts.  "Baby Talk" should be discouraged. It's important to  provide experiences for the  child that will expand his  vocabulary and give him/her  the opportunity to discuss the  events - trips to the beach;  the stores; the zoo; the airport; helping around the yard  and house; visits to grandparents, other relatives and  friends.  Most children, before they  come to school, have the  experience of using scissors  and glue; pencils and crayons.  They cut and paste, draw and  colour - and all of these basic  activities are part of the preparation for thc school Language Arts program. It's  important too. to give your  child the freedom to experiment - even when it means  cleaning up after a mud pie  session.  Once the child is at school,  parents can help by being  interested, encouraging,  and most of all. POSITIVE.  Over and over again, it is  brought out that how a child  feels about himself (i.e. his  self-image) has a large effect  on how well he will learn.  Sonic children may be slow in  their initial school progress.  Wc have to recognize their  individual differences. Pressuring them to do large  amounts of school work at  home will not make the slow-  developer progress any faster.  Play is an equally important  part of the child's day. Listen  to the child read when he/she  suggests it - be encouraging  in your comments. Do take  the time to continue reading  to the child as well, and do  take the time to accompany  him/her to the library where  he can select his/her own  books.  Family games such as "I  Spy", card games and accumulative alphabetical  games, as well as the commercial games available in  stores can be considered as  an alternative to watching  TV.  Wc all recognize that a  good start is important for  our children in their school  experience. It's important  for parents to recognize that  the best start begins at home.

Freethinker's Pulpit:-  "The RUSSIANS"  bv Andy Randall  In this, the close of my  series on these people of  Russia proper, I am fully  aware that I will have not  found favour with two definite  groups of people, who might  just be among my friends.  The first group will be rankled  over my descriptions of the  conditions under which thc  good people of Russia must  live, and tolerate as best  they can. Also they will  probably call mc a liar, and  that I have used propaganda  styled journalism to point thc  finger of blame on the Soviet  system and its leaders. The  second group will no doubt  label me as a Russian lover;  perhaps even a Soviet agent  in disguise. As a cosmopolitan, and certainly as a  professed Christian. I have a  fellow-feeling for the Chinese,  Russians and all other races  of .people. That, simply, is  my answer.  To continue: Yes, they arc  the wildest party-givers,  and if they take to you they  will give you the shirt off  their backs (or is it shirts  plural?). Like the Chinese,  they will spoil children. They  love them so. Though sentimental, they can be extremely  cruel, but then the Germans  proved that too. A high sense  of humour is balanced with a  patience and a toleration such  as most of us cannot show.  Would you, Joe and Jane  Canuck, stand back at Vancouver's airport to let some  privileged characters board  the plane you'd bought your Tolstoy  ticket for, and all set to go,  just because some pip-squeak  of a Soviet official ordered  you to "Get the big 'H' out  of there." The privileged  ones arc not necessarily top,  or even middle strata, Soviet  mouthpieces. Just they have  the jump on those who haven't  got that open sesame to all  doors into thc golden circle.  And, poor devils, they may  have waited at that airport  for 24 to 36 hours for their  plane. Tolerance? Wc simply  do not know thc word as it  applies to these people. And,  why? There is no other way.  Protests affect thc lop-brass  like steam in a blizzard.  These are some of thc things  that    make    dissidents    of  so many who have been labelled traitors, defectors, by the  Supreme Soviet. They all  love Mother Russia.  It is a good idea for us to  look on thc bright side of  life, but wc should not forget  so easy the years of Stalin's  purges when hc had millions  killed, or suffer misery and  death in mental hospitals or  Siberia's prison camps.  Kruschev gave his people  hope by the de-Stalinization  of controls, and some travel  outside the Iron Curtain.  Brcsncv lowered the boom  again in taking the middle  line between Stalin and Kruschev, So thc people are  damned if they do. and  damned if they don't, just as  before, but with a little less  fear of the KGB (police).  There are more than 6  million religious, or church'  followers. Bibles are in great  demand, so are the old ikons.  Some say it is just for anything  to give them a lost link with  their past beliefs. Strange,  but those were their golden  days, or so they fancy. Mother Russia they passionately  love, not Soviet Russia. A  question comes to my mind.  If Germany had gone Communistic instead of Russia,  would their people have had  the religious freedom, and  many other freedoms, the  Russians lack? 1 think yes.  Russia's national character  had been too long impregnated with the centuries of  Czardom, and its often merciless subjugation of the  masses. True Communism,  that which was idealised  by the writer Count Leo  not    only    in    his  writings but in his private  life, should have had its birth  in a more democratic country  than old autocratic Russia.  That was the people's loss,  an ideology that came out of  thc oven half-baked, and handled as it still is handled by  a power conscious group of  mini-czars with less regard for  humanising Russia, than their  overall craze to compete with  thc West in all technological  ideals. They simply have  grabbed a hold of the wrong  ideal. As for thc old Communistic Manifesto and its  declarations of world domination by any means, that I  will leave for those who must  know more about those things  than I can ever dream of.  What do the Russian people  want? Lowering of trade  barriers; sharing of literature;  music, more than the regulated and chosen few acceptable  bands, stars of stage and  screen; art and other freedoms with the West. Oh,  and by thc way, if you don't  like thc music, do not shoot  our editor. John Burnside,  he probably does not agree  with some of this, I, the  pianist am playing. Back to  the drawing board. There is  a freedom of choice. Hob-  son's Choice we used to call  it. Become a member of the  Supreme Soviet; or the Communist Party Central Committee; or any one of the other  affiliations down through the  network, and you won't have  to wait for that pie in the sky.  They pic comes to you as a  reward for being a good Joe,  when you sign on the dotted  line. You travel, nay you are  expected to travel with Bresnev's blessing, a grip full of  ;moola, and all the indoctrination requred for handling  those pesky, so inquisitive,  Western capitalistic smarties.  Part of that meaty pie is the  liberty to come back home to  Russia with "souvenirs"  galore.  Speak your mind once, maybe twice, and Nobel Prize fellow or not, you become a dangerous pariah, an outcast.  You stink, you rot, you are  an enemy of the Soviet State.  Goodbye privileges. Goodbye  Mother Rusia. Maybe, goodbye you. That takes care of  those who will not conform.  Guess my life would have  been cut short in un-freedom  land.  Among the escape valves  for the people, and I have  mentioned black-marketing,  is one I particularly enjoy.  Though it is a dangerous  pastime, almost as hurtful  as Rusian roulette, the Russian genius for poking fun  (behind the scenes) at all  things Soviet is my favourite.  I like this anecdote, where the  Muscovites find the whole  lifestyle of their leaders such  a mokery of the Marxist  ideals that they make a joke  on Bresnev.  'Bresnev wanted to impress  his old mother on how her son  had got along. So he invited  her up from their home in  Dneprodzerzhink, in the  Ukraine. (I've been in the  Ukraine. Wheat-growing  country.) He showed her first  through his spacious apartment in Moscow, but she  seemed uneasy and puzzled.  Next he called the Kremlin  for his Zil and they motored  to his dacha (mansion) near  Usovo; it had been earlier  tenanted by Stalin and Krushchev. A grand tour of all the  rooms and grounds brought  no response. Finally, he  called for his personal helicopter and flew his mother to  his hunting lodge at Zavidovo,  When he'd escorted his  mother to the banquet room,  showing off the huge fireplace, his guns, everything,  he turned pleadingly to her,  "Tell me Mama, what to you  think?"  "Well," she halted, "It's  good, Leonid. But what if  the Reds come back?"  Another diversion to lighten  a hum-drum life is the Cat  and Mouse game played  seriously by the intelligentsia  and the Soviet authorities.  Everyone watches the writers,  artists, musicians, playwrights and comedians to  see how far they will dare the  Secret Police in their role of  state censors. Just one more  little jump out of the mouse  hole, and Big Cat has his  prey. That stops the wee  mouse for a long while, but  other freethinking mice wait  their chance and they play  against odds.  Russians are people, just  like ourselves. Extremely  down to earth folk, who do  not have the ix-ups caste-wise  as in India. I feel there is  great hope in their joining  the family of nations. IF their  government would drop those  invisible barriers to international communication and  purposeful goodwill.  Sea Cadets seek  practical help  Coast News.

If he or she is  not confident in their capacity  as the handler, the horse  feels insecure and will not  consider entering such a confined area.  Horses introduced to hauling by a competent handler  will always load well, even  after years of never being  hauled. When beginning,  the trainer will go very slowly  and gain the confidence of  his charge, going only as  far as the horse seems willing.  It may take 10 or IS minutes  to load the first time. If  handled correctly and settled  between commands, this time  will decrease quickly. In a  short time, the horse will  walk confidently into his  own vehicle.  Before one even attempts  to load, you must first evaluate your vehicle. Is it safe,  does it rock and reel when the  horse enters, is the roof too  low, is the ramp secure and  ofa non-slip surface? Ahorse  trailer should be secured to  a vehicle and brakes applied.  A stock truck should be  parked so the ramp is not a  steep incline, horse racks,  unless of the factory made  variety, are fairly unsafe and  should be checked over to be  sure   that   the   horse   can't  18th Annual  Hi NEIGHBOUR  BRAND NAME APPLIANCE  February 6 - March 31,1978  Be a winner at our 1978  Hi Neighbour Sale!

Before you actually load  your horse and haul him anywhere he should have his legs  and tail wrapped against  injury. If it is winter he must  be blanketed and possibly  hooded, if in a rack without  atop.  One way of insuring that  he hauls quietly is to make  sure he is a big hungry before hand. Always give yourself lots of time to load, at  least 40 minutes, so that you  will not be rushed and upset  your horse.  Our ferries are usually no  problem to livestock, if you  are at the terminal at least a  half hour before sailing time,  you will not have to wait.  This is a provision that is  greatly appreciated by horse  and owner alike. The ferry  ride itself is usually enjoyed  by the horse.  Our advice on hauling is:  have good equipment, take  your time, practise with the  vehicle before loading the  horse. Speak with an experienced hauler before embarking on a long trip, about  rest stops, herd laws, boarder  requirements, etc.  National  volleyball  A crowd of around two-  hundred and fifty showed up  at Elphinstone High School on  Saturday evening to watch an  exhibitional volleyball match  between the Western Sector  of the Canadian Women's  Volleyball Team and the Mission Molsons, considered to  be the best high school boys'  team in B.C.  The final score with the  women wimming by Arse  games to two is an indication of the calibre of the  boys' team. They had a slight  height advantage as the net  was slightly lower than the  regulation height for men and  one notch above that for the  women, and this along with  thc great effort gave them  two of the five games.  Spectators enjoyed some of  the finest playing seen in  this area, and apart from the  entertainment value, local  participants in the sport  picked many valuable pointers.  The only blemish on the  evening was the distraction  caused by some of the youngsters noisily playing on the  sidelines. This was disconcerting both to the audience  and the players, and should  have been guarded against.  Final game scores were:  Canadian Women's Team,  First game IS, Mission Molsons, 7; CWT Second game  16, M.M. 18; CWT Third  game 15, M.M. 5; CWT  Fourth game 16, M.M. 14;  CWT Fifth game 6, M.M.  15; Game Totals: Canadian  Women's Team 3 to Mission  Molsons 2.  1  'ill    If you should run  into  .to1/*  I      a large Ukrainian  bunny  rc.  at Easter   y  take  your  car  to  I$��&^*^'  ^Z  Wally.  ���:  I  CONCRETE &  CONSTRUCTION LTD.  offers  A Complete Concrete &  Building Service  * Forming  * Place & Finishing  * Decorative    Work;    sidewalks,  patios & driveways  A FULL SERVICE CENTRE  FOR ALL YOUR CONCRETE &  CONSTRUCTION IDEAS  Jim  886-7571  Ron  886-9262  iif:WiYi��^  Rugby  A   new   season   of   motorbike   racing    ago Sunday.

Cimo Volleyball Club; 5th, the Mission  Belles; and sixth the Beachcombers.  Soccer  Three games took place over  the weekend in the Sunshine  Coast Soccer League. On Sunday  at 12 noon at Hackett Park it  was the Sechelt Chiefs against  Wakefield United. The Chiefs  juped into a three-goal lead in  the first half on goals by Howard  Joe, Kenneth Paul, and William  August but the United fought  back with two goals of their own  before half time both scored by  Alan Nickerson. In the second  half veteran Theodore Dixon  scored twice for the Chiefs  before Alan Nickerson completed  his hat trick for the United to  end the game as a 5-3 victory for  thc Chiefs.  At 2:00 p.m. at the Indian  Lands Park the Shamrocks and  the Renegades battled to a 1-1  tie. After a scoreless first half  Bobby Power scored on a penalty  kick for the Shamrocks before  Barry Johnson tied it up for the  Renegades.  It was another 1-1 tie on  Saturday at Hackett Park when  thc Wakefield United were in  action against the Mr.Sports  team of New Westminster.

There  apparently was a threat to take  legal action to prevent Kinsmen use of the park area on  the grounds that the land was  donated to the Village "for  recreational use of children."

Alderman Lietner put forward a request from a Christian group wishing to erect  a tent close to the logger  sports area in Hackct Park in  order to hold religious gatherings. It was felt that additional information was required on  the size of the tent and the  length of the stay.

New  Horizons  hy Tom Wulion  There were no candidates  for thc February birthday  cake, so in lieu of that, our  president Bill Grose asked  whether any of the lady  seniors had given birth to a  child that month. When this  drew a negative reply he  asked whether anv member  had become another grandparent during February. Mrs.  Betty Merrick qualified for  this, so Ihe cake was duly  cut and enjoyed thus saving  it from going into cold storage.  The Elphinstone New Horizons held its Spring Party on  March 13th opening with  Bingo, Bill Grose being thc  caller. The lucky winners  were Grace Cummings,  Minnie and Irving Kirkland,  Dorthy Bruce. Jack James,  Walter James, Lillian Thomas, Jos. Kertesz and Edith  Fraser.  Following this, Mrs. Betty  Merrick organized an ice-  breaking contest by pinning a  photo clipping on the backs  of the people who had to  guess whose picture it was.  When time was up, Mrs.  Madelene Grose headed the  list by sporting four correct  entries thus winning the prize.  In contrast, a musical contest  was held when twenty familiar  melodies were played on Ihe  piano while thc contestants  entered the titles on a score  sheet. Mrs. L. Thomas and  Mr. Jim Ironside had top  scores of 18 correct out of  thc twenty. These contests  made a refreshing change.  In honor of St. Patrick, Mr.  Walter sang three Irish  selections: "The Rose of  Tralec". ���'Sure They Call it  Ireland" and "Mother  Machree". Thank you Walter.

Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Dear Ann:  Speaking of sex. which you  do so often ��� I know of a  local rabbit that got it on with  a chicken. Not just any  chicken, with a choice of  several he seemed, when in  view, to pick the same chicken. What do you think of  that?  Bewildered  Dear Bewildered:  I've known of similar cascs-  who says love isn't blind?  Haven't you looked among  your friends and thought they  were almost as mismated as  that? Truth is stranger than  fiction.  Dear Ann:  I have a job that takes me  away two weeks at a time.  My girlfriend and my best  friend are rumoured to be  seeing each other in my absence.   What should l do as  I don't want to lose  either  Undecided.  Dear Undecided:  You could share. On the  other hand vou could take one  of them with you, change jobs,  or buy her a one woman dog.  It's a tough decision. Let's  hope it's platonic and will  solve itself. First be sure it's  true. Believe nothing you  hear and half that you see.  Dear Ann:  My girlfriend who is young  and pretty has been depressed  a lot the last few months.  Do you think there's anything  wrong with her head?  Puzzled.  Dear Puzzled:  I hope not! It seems most  of us have a let down after  Christmas - thc sun and spring  bring us back to our optimistic happy spaces, watch  and see. If not check with  your family doctor.  by Don Lockstead  In 1975 the Socreds went  from one end of the province  to the other selling the word  "overrun". In a shrill and  well orchestrated campaign,  the Socreds, however rightly,  made that word synonymous  with financial incompetence.  It worked.  The Socreds were elected  and the NDP went down to  defeat largely because of the  success of that strategy. In  I978 however, that word  has come back to haunt the  Socred strategy makers "Bigger and better than ever"  as thc saying goes.  Thc Socred overrun is now  at $177 million! Every week  the Cabinet meets between  now and the bringing down of  a new budget in April, that  amount increases. The Socred  cabinet ministers are justifiably scared. They, more  than anyone else, have been  conditioned to salivate and  bark wildly when the word  overrun was mentioned. However, they now must appear  calm and somehow explain  their folly. It will be a difficult task. At each weekly  meeting between now and the  budget they know the press is  waiting outside thc door to  look at the number of special  warrants approved. The press  will give front page coverage  to the warrants because the  press  was  trained  as  well.  How Ihe cabinet ministers  must cringe as they realize  that each dollar they approve  contributes to what is now a  record in overruns in the  history of the province.  However, it won't be quite  as easy anymore. The Socreds have amassed the power  and money they wanted but  this time not solely at the  expense of 1CBC customers,  ferry passengers or the unemployed. This time they've  done it through overruns.  They've done it at the expense  ol their 1975campaign.  Why is it that these overruns have taken place?    For  ��� ��� ���  NOW  IS THE  TIME  to SERVICE your lawn   mowers  and  other   garden POWER EQUIPMENT.

It's not  only a scandal politically but  financially as well. One small  example:  Previously if farm land was  to be taken out of the Agricultural Land Reserve, a permit had to be obtained from  the Land Commission. If  the application was outrightly  rejected, that is, if all the  Land Commissioners were  unanimous in disapproving  the plan, it did not go any  further. If, however, at least  a minority of Land Commissioners felt otherwise, that  say, the viability of the ALR  land was questionable, then  appeal could be made to  Cabinet.  With the Socred centralists  in power now, all that has  been changed. Appeals to  cabinet need no longer have  the minority approval of the  Land Commissioners. In  effect it means a developer  will get his hearing with the  Cabinet regardless of a rejection from the Land Commission. Just such a scenario  recently occurred in the Shus-  wap Regional District. Despite three meetings with the  Land Commission - all at the  taxpayers' expense and all of  which unanaimously rejected  the developer's plan - the go-  ahead was given by the Provincial Cabinet. Centralization not only allowed the  Socreds to repay favours to  developers who financed them  into power in 1975 but it  had also meant a loss of funds  from the provincial treasury.  That process is being repeated  throughout the province.  Centralization is expensive.  Indeed, one of the largest  overruns is the transfer of  employees from the Vancouver Resources Board to the  Ministry of Human Resources.  And to what end? So that  when Mr. Vander Zalm slams  his fist on the table every  employee in his ministry  jumps to attention.

Canoe Pass is with  us again and Nelson Island is a  hive of activity.  The Canoe Pass developer  has applied for an eight lot  sub-division with houses  sharing a common sewage  system. Local residents still  aren't convinced that sewage  will not become a problem  on that rockpoint point.  The Green Bay Land Use  Contract will go to public  hearing with all the concessions which we asked to have  incorporated. Adrien Stott  presented a proposal for a 36  house development on 180  acres at Quarry Bay. The  planner has received a 5 lot  application for Cockburn  Point. The APC asked for  assurance in all cases that  beaches and safe anchorage  would be protected for public  use.  The Bowsprit Drive Community Wharf Assn. were asked  for a detailed plan to justify  their application for a 100 foot  extension to their proposed  wharf.  The decision was unanimous against any change in  the Leasehold of Madeira  Park Resorts Ltd. Their request for a change to subdivision or strata title has already been turned down by  the Regional Board Planning  Committee.  Sakinaw Lake will get its  long overdue parking lot. Construction will begin next  month on a public parking  lot near the Hydro line.  People who care can  protect their community. The  Dept. of Environment have  refused 43 of 45 applications  from Hydro to spray right-of-  way. Thanks for your concern  and letters.  Director Harrison will  strike a special committee to  prepare a report for the  Review Commission on Regional Boards and the Planner  has called a March 28th  meeting of the revamped  Settlement Plan Committee.  ��������  Last week Pender Harbour  lost another good friend and  fine neighbour. Mrs. Kay  White passed away in Vancouver on March 15th. Kay  was a tireless worker for  many community organizations. Over the years, in her  quiet and unassuming way,  she gave thousands of hours to  making Pender Harbour a  better place to live. We will  miss her.  Auxiliary  The March meeting of the Halfmoon Bay hospital auxiliary was  held at the Welcome Beach Hall,  on March 8. 1978 with twelve  members present.  The meeting was presided over  by Mrs. Mary Murray, as our  president Mrs. Jerri Smith was on  vacation. Mrs. Olive Comyn  acted as secretary and treasurer  in the absence of our secretary  Mrs. Ruth Forrester, who, we  are glad to report, is recovering  from surgery. Our treasurer  Mrs. Helen Hain was also absent.  We were very pleased to welcome a new member, Mrs,  Thelma MacDonald.  Reports were read by the  various Committees. Mary  Murray read a letter received  from St.Mary's Hospital, requesting more members required  for the disaster programme.  Mary McDonald reported that  Pender Harbour auxiliary was  putting on the St.Patrick's Day  party for thc extended care patients.  There is also a request for more  knitting to be done for the gift  shop. Our next day at the thrift  shop is April 15.  Due to so many members  absent, our meeting was rather  short, so no further business  to discuss, thc meeting was  closed and delicious refreshments  served by Evelyn Shcllshcar  and Mary Murray.
