A spokesman for the Bowen  Island group told the Coast  News that the Bowen Island  group demanded that the  meeting of the Board to discuss the budget on January  30 be a public one.

In ascertaining from Sechelt Alderman Joyce Kolibas that the  letter had indeed been sent from the Village Clerk on behalf of  the Council, Chairman Ed Nicholson stated his opinion that it  was not an appropriate letter. He expressed himself as being  still of the opinion that the arena deficit could be solved with  more self-help. Nicholson said that the parents of Minor Hockey  participants and the parents of figure-skaters could be mobilized to raise the four or five thousand dollars required to keep  the arena open, He pointed out that of four revenue-producing  curling bonspiels which had sought space, only one had been  /iv      __l_.       9      1- m        _���    _. accommodated.

In his proclamation of  ''February as Heart Month,  Mayor Blain urges the citi-  ns of Gibsons to give gen-  isly to the Heart Fund  c&fnpaign. Speaking to Council, on behalf of the local  fund drive, Joan Rigby said,  "We will be going from door  to door from February 14 to  24. We would like everyone  who donates to know that  90* out of every dollar goes to  research and education in  hearth disease. Fifty percent  of the deaths in Canada are  due to some form of heart  attack, stroke or hypertension." There will be an educational display in the Mall  during the fund campaign.  Council members now have  a sheaf of by-laws from other  municipalities on the control  of refuse-burning to read  before they come to any  decision on what to do in  Gibsons.

The passage  reads, "The Act only becomes  operative after it is clear that  the parties in the negotiations  have been unable to reach an  agreement, and then only  when there is an actual or  apprehended work stoppage...  by strike or lock-out...which is  likely to create...danger,  threat to economy, disruption  to educational services."  The mayor took exception  to the word "likely" as one  which made it too easy for  government to invoke the  Act in any dispute,  'tT$'*r-,  George Gibb frolics with kids on a 7-foot high igloo  they built on Reed Road.

He had lived in Wilson  Creek for over forty years. He  had homesteaded there, and  raised his family of seven  children ��� three sons and  four daughters.  Stan, or 'Curly' as he was  known by his friends, had a  sawmill with Mr. Gerry Lemieux. He had also been a  logger and had tried his hand  at farming. He was also a  member of the Odd Fellows  Lodge.  Tyson Road, in Wilson  Creek, is named after him,  as the Tyson homestead and  the sawmill were there at  the end of the road.

Generally speaking, the directors felt that support for the  arena would be premature and Director Charles Lee, in his ,.  .���,. ,������ ���,  capacity as Finance Chairman, was asked to look into the situa- Sm ��d XtHyXbte  tion and come before the Board with his recommendation. ^Wtor,  29.

In a letter to  Council from Branch 109,  Royal Canadian Legion, President Al Pajak said, "The  preservation of our unity is  of no less importance now to  Legion members than was the  preservation of our personal  freedom and sovereignty  in the two world wars.''  Miscellaneous items from  the Council meeting of January 23 include a by-law to  provide for pre-payment of  of 1979 property taxes. At a  ten percent interest bonus, a  pre-payment of $550, for instance, becomes a $571 credit  on the inevitable taxes for this  year.

Benjamin gave the Board  a breakdown of the costs,  advantages and disadvantages  of various types of solid waste  disposal including the landfill method presently used,  incineration without heat  collection, incineration with  heat utilization.  The solid waste consultant  made it clear that any future  solid waste disposal system  would see Pender Harbour as  a separate entity, the distance involved being prohibitive to a single regional  facility. He projected that the  present total of approximately  100 tons of solid waste would  increase by four percent per  annum to a total of 219 tons  in 1988 along with an equal  increase in the population.  It was apparent that the  preferred solution for the  solid waste disposal problem  on the Sunshine Coast, at  least by Benjamin, was the  incineration with heat utilization option. He said that St.  Mary's Hospital fuel needs  could be met by this means.  Alternate Director David  Fyles from Area F, himself an  engineer, questioned some of  Benjamin's figures and Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon  also seemed to feel that Benjamin's estimates for labour  cost for the unit were rather  low.  The report will be discussed  at a full meeting of the Public  Utilities Committee some time  in February.

In opposition to Hydro  The Steering Committee to continue  the struggle against the Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir line which B.C.Hydro seems  intent in ramming across the top half of  the Sechelt Peninsula deserves the support of the entire Sunshine Coast. That  Hydro can be opposed successfully is  evident in the fact that the proposed line  will now by-pass Lasqueti Island where  the residents conducted a campaign  against the line crossing their island that  made Hydro back off.  It is hindsight but deeply regrettable  nonetheless that a record was not kept of  the first public meeting held at Madeira  Park, which saw an overflow crowd of all  philosophic persuasions eloquent in their  opposition to the massive power line.  Regrettable, particularly in that there is  a requirement that transmission lines be  located only after the social impact has  been evaluated. Benefiting from the  meeting at Madeira Park, the Lasqueti  Island people kept a court record of their  meeting which followed by one week the  original Madeira Park meeting.  That such meetings are of value is  evidenced by the fact that the next time  Hydro came to the area they had an open  house meeting so that they could deal  with the protesters in ones and twos and  no one but the Hydro engineers could get  any satisfactory idea of what was happening. Even so, Bruce Woodsworth  heard Project Manager Billy Ellis tell  someone that even the Sunshine Coast's  engineer���Woodsworth���had testified  that the alternate routes to the north of  the settled areas were not feasible, when  in fact Woodsworth, with considerable  experience in route selection for transmission lines in British Columbia, had  found them to be entirely feasible and  said so.  Now B.C.Hydro is telling the Environmental Land Use Committee that they  have measured the social impact of the  residents of the Sunshine Coast���they  have, but they have also ignored it;  they are insisting that Vancouver Island  desperately needs the power the lines will  carry; and they are pressing for a route to  be selected across the Sechelt Peninsula  although there is experienced testimony  that by following Perketts Creek to the  north they would avoid all settled areas  and all but one of the flyways they are  proposing to cross.  As Howie White pointed out at Saturday's meeting, it would be wrong to see  as futile the efforts to oppose this power-  line. The opposition N.D.P. party have  undertaken a two-year moratorium on  its construction pending further study,  therefore all that might be necessary  would be enough opposition to delay it  pending an election which will in all  likelihood be held this year.  The feeling of futility one feels in contemplating the arrogance and the actions  of B.C.Hydro may be something which is  more seeming than actual. Bruce Woods-  worth spoke of that Energy Coalition  meeting in Naramata where there were  delegates from the Peace River where  Hydro plans to inundate still more of  B.C.'s scarce agricultural land, and delegates from the Kootenays where they  plan more grandiose schemes akin to the  Arrow Lakes Dam. All over the province,  in short, there is growing opposition to  B.C.Hydro and the Tiext meeting of the  Energy Coalition will be held in Victoria during the session so that members  of the legislature will be hearing directly  and often from those who are outraged.  Speaker after speaker at the recent  meeting made the point that one of the  roots of the problem was the Hydro rate  structure which saw heavy users of power  paying less per kilowatt than domestic  users, There is therefore no motivation  for the great industrial users of electricity  to effect the changes in their equipment  which would effect power economies and  modernization. Then, of course, there is  the question of the debt of B.C. Hydro  which sees sixty percent of the B.C. debt  accumulated by this one corporation.  The debt situation for Hydro is so  extreme that they must plan on selling  massive and increasing quantities of  power to keep up with their debt load.  Here is at least one good reason for  Bob Bonner's call for the export of power.  There is also the self-interest of the  Hydro engineers to be considered. More  and more giant projects ensure them in  their high-paying jobs. It is not difficult  to persuade oneself that what is manifestly good for oneself is good for the  general.  B.C.Hydro is intent on bringing a massive powerline across the Sunshine Coast  over water sources for residents and  this with an entirely unrepentant dedication to the use of herbicides to keep these  transmission lines open. This line should  be stopped pending further study and  we are confident that further study at the  very minimum will locate it far from  settled areas.  We wish the Steering Committee  which is continuing the opposition  every success and trust that the support  that they will need from the community  will be generously forthcoming.  ..from the files of Coast Nevw  VSfWmber^nen  5YEARS AGO  Dick Ranniger, the Gibsons Fire Chief  in his report to Gibsons Council asks for  a larger rescue truck.

Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ,**  George Matthews  Being part two of one man's  look askance at the exploits  of Premier Superwac and the  multi-national corporations  who would seize control of  that fairest of helpless maidens, MacMillan-Bloedel.    ft  Last weejc we noted that the  federal government had  proved itself helpless before  the might of the vast conglomerates who wield power  in North America in the matter  of a wages and prices policy  which became a wages policy  for the good and sufficient  reason that the corporations  refused to have it any other  way, and we also glanced at  the withdrawal of Inco from  Sudbury to Chile leaving  Canada, or a symbolic portion thereof, exploited, devastated and deserted.  Further we glanced at the  government-orchestrated sale  of Panco poultry to the agribusiness giant, Cargill,  losing to local control another  several hundred jobs, all of  which left us doubtful about  the story of how Superwac  drove C.P.I, from the province and saved the day.  We undertook last week to  imagine 'a scenario' other  than that officially released.'  'Scenario', a splendid term  whose appearance on the political scene, it seems to me,  we owe to former President  Nixon and his embattled  henchmen in the White  House. It was once upon a  time a word I believe used in  Hollywood to denote a film  script, and something of the  fantasy element remains. A  scenario is not necessarily  what happened but something  that we can devise that might  make some sense, or seem to  make some sense.  Bearing in mind, then, that  what we have here is an exercise in political make-believe  utilizing several acknowledged facts and many unknown to present a possibly  believable picture, let's have a  crack at it.  First, some acknowledged  facts: it is a fact that the  accumulation of economic  power in relatively few hands  has been going on for a long  time in the Western World.  Fewer and fewer giant conglomerates control the western world's trade and the  men who run them frequently  have interlocking directorates  so that they have a say in the  management of several of  these giants. The New York  banker John Rockefeller instigated the creation of the  Tri-lateral Commission, beneath which colourless name  there is an organization comprising about two hundred of  the most powerful men in  Western Europe, the United  States and Japan, Of that  number, one is B.C.'s own  Robert Bonner, chief of B.C.  Hydro and former head of  MacMillan-Bloedel.  Let us not forget that the  reaction of such men as these  was extreme to the former  N.D.P, government in B.C.  The conception that the vast  mineral wealth of the province should be controlled by  the province for the benefit  of the citizens of the province  saw B.C. labelled as the  'Cuba of North America'  during the brief tenure of  Davey Barrett. Vast sums of  money were made available  to remove from office the  upstart government who  dared to question the wisdom  of selling coal and iron and  buying back cars. The role  of B.C., in common with the  rest of Canada, is to be a  reservoir of raw materials for  the industrial giants and they  were willing to spend great  sums to ensure that a government compliant to their wishes  would be elected.  And so we have hastily  patched together a shaky  coalition of power hungry  Liberals and Conservatives  under the predictable inherited leadership of Wacky  Bennett's son, Billy. The stratagem was successful and the  so-called socialist hordes were  beaten back and B.C. was a  storehouse again.  It is the blessing and the  curse of democracy, however,  depending on whether you are  in power or out, that the  people can change the government. They can do it at regular elections and one is, in  all likelihood, imminent. The  federal Liberals must call an  election by June at the latest  and the Socreds will want to  have their provincial election  first if they follow the precedent of the previous twenty  years of Socred rule. We  can't have all those Liberals  and Conservatives out there  remembering that they are  Liberals and Conservatives  before a provincial election  now, can we? The whole  shaky coalition might collapse  like the philosophical house of  cards that it is.  Further, the signs are not  good for the incumbent Socreds and their multi-national  corporate   backers.   A   poll  conducted by the resurgent  Conservative party ranks the  Socreds well behind the N.D.  P. in popular support. The  socialist hordes, it would  appear, are back at the gates.  What to do?  The old stand-by of massive  financial support for the party  that allows the total exploitation of the province will of  course be on the cards again;  for its part the provincial  government in its traditional  fashion undoubtedly has vast  sums ready to give away to  us as soon as the election is  announced, but the reliably  anti-socialist Vancouver  newspapers which find their  way throughout the province  with full page Socred ads at  every election time are on  strike and the old ways may  not work. They failed in 1975,  didn't they.  So, remembering the Big  Lie technique that Hitler  devised or at least practised  on the grandest scale, whereby what you tell the people is  as different as possible from  what is actually the case so  that even the skeptics would  never dream of the extent of  the discrepancy, let us simply  assume that that whole Dotn-  tar, MacMillan-Bloedel,  C.P.I, minuet was really  orchestrated as a massive  public relations exercise on  behalf of the compliant patsies in the Socred government. Let's make Billy Bennett look good. The grand  scheme of continued dominance by the industrial few  requires B.C.'s raw materials  and producible power. The  gullible now have themselves a premier who is seen  to be doing battle for the ordinary citizen against the twin  evils of Big Unions and Big  Business and the knowing and  the powerful have themselves  a docile province���they hope.  Let's be clear about one  thing: in almost every respect  the Sunshine Coast is as near  to Heaven on Earth as this  world provides. It always has  been, and at least for the immediate future, is likely to  remain so. In climate it is the  most moderate and pleasant  region in Canada. Politically,  it is among the most stable  areas of the most stable province of the most stable nation  in the world. Economically,  compared to most other  parts of the world, it is rich  and abundant. In its social  atmosphere it mixes the  best of tolerance and neighbourliness. We are, in short, a  marvelous people; not any  more marvelous than thousands of other inhabitants of  little paradises, but marvelous enough.  Our great good fortune in  living here however may be  our greatest weakness. To  paraphrase the bard, it could  be that security is our greatest  enemy. Remember the story  from" Homer's Odyssey?  When Odysseus, the hero,  finds himself in a wonderful  land where all of man's mortal  needs and more are satisfied he finally sees the natural  pitfalls of the easy life and has  to force himself to leave.  For many of us here this is  Homer's magic land and there  are some of us, particularly  our young people, who can't  seem to force themselves to  leave.  For those of our citizens  who recognize this, the land is  sweet. Many folks come here  to escape thc edgy, aggressive, pushy and competitive  world beyond the Sound. For  those people, the Coast offers  peace, tranquility and gentility as well as a high degree of  economic and social security.  Some however, not recognizing this, delude themselves  into comparing this place to  the world in general, failing to  recognize how special we are.  THE BOOKS IN MY BOOKCASE  The books in my bookcase  though their covers stay clean,  brightly-coloured as ever,  have their pages yellowing  some badly, some faintly,  smell no longer Iresh.  We are growing old���  imperceptibly,  uncomplainingly-  together.  by Raymond Souster  Success in our community is  surely success but to translate that into success in the  world in general is to miss the  point that most of us are here  through luck or accident not  because we are naturally  successful.  A person can be successful  in a community like ours with  something less than a first-  rate performance, and, thank  Heaven, he doesn't have to be  dishonest or unscrupulous.  A business person can get by  with less than efficient business practice. A professional  person can be respected here,  when an average performance  is the best he could hope for  elsewhere. A tradesman faces  less competition for his trade  than he would in the city.  From politicians to pom-pom  girls, the inexorable grind of  competition is kind to us.  The advantages to living  here are innumerable. To the  person who wishes to be left  alone, there is space to be  left alone. To those who seek  presidencies of clubs, directorships of organizations,  leaderships of agencies or  organizers of benefits, there is  adequate opportunity for  achievement without the unpleasant discomfort of massive opposition. In a place  like this a person with moderate talent and a fair degree of initiative can be almost  anything he wants to be. In  the city, he'd be the average  man in the street.  The price of going unchallenged does not come cheap.  There is massive talent here  that often rots on the dung  heap of the easy life. A friend  of mine says this place is  like heroin; the more you get  thc more you need. In a small  town you'll never know how  good you really are. All success is relative; the most talented of actors in local little  theatre may not get as far as  an interview in a big city  company. The most purposeful and aggressive of leaders  in a small town would too  often be the most passive of  followers in a more urban  setting. The lack of challenge can sap ambition but  then again in a small place  the very word ambition can  be offensive,  This is in no way a criticism of people who choose to  live in small communities.  There is more happiness and  satisfaction in this place than  you will find most anywhere.  Let's just not be afraid to see  ourselves for what we are.  Let's not accept second best.

He casts loose  and we growl off up in the  inlet like a gang of shanghaied  sailors. It is still daylight but  already starting to blur around  the edges. It will be well  after dark before we reach  Misery.  We are not fated to arrive  at camp that night, however.  Almost exactly halfway  there, the engine coughs,  stutters, clanks and utterly  gives up the ghost. No amount  of cursing or cajoling on  George's part can get it going  again. "Sonofabitch!" he  announces Anally, "this pile  of junk seems to have had the  course. No bloody radio either  so I can't even get in touch  with Jennings. Looks like we'll  have to tie-up somewhere for  the night."  Darkness is closing in fast.  Luckily we have been running  fairly close to shore. We unship the dinghy and tow the  old trawler to a fortuitous  tree that juts out horizontally  from the rocks. We moor the  larger boat to this. It is too  deep to drop anchor but the  fir reaches out more than  twenty feet and should act as  a stiff-leg to hold the trawler  off-shore. There is only a  single flashlight aboard the  boat and no one is either  sober or willing enough to  row the several miles to  Jenning's camp in the now  quite-profound and starless,  dark. We will wait till daylight and hope for an absence  of strong winds. Everyone is  muttering and grumbling to  some degree. A heavy rain  has commenced and it promises to be a long chilly  vigil. In varous stages of intoxication, both liquor-induced and otherwise, we prepare to endure until morning.  Since there are only two narrow bunks, we take turns  trying to sleep. The rest of us  sit around smoking, dozing,  V.v.v.v.v.w.v.v.v.v.v.v.v.v,  chewing the fat and sipping  on a welcome bottle of rum  that Brodsky, definitely a man  of great foresight, has produced. Our luck holds in the  matter of squalls. When dawn  comes wetly and at last,  George and Chris set out in  the rowboat to fetch help.  The tide is running against  them and they are gone for  several hours. There is no  food whatever on board as  George took the supplies in on  Friday. Those of us who are  not too sick to consider it,  begin to get hungry. Then  Billy notices that the exposed  beach of a tiny adjacent cove  is literally cobbled with  oysters. We scramble ashore  along the tree, minus Brodsky who is snoring loudly in  one of the bunks. None of us  has the stomach to try the  shellfish raw so we light a  small fire and boil them up in  a tobacco-tin. They taste a  little bitter but otherwise  okay. The arrival of Chris and  George with Roy Jennings  and his landing-craft, interrupts our impromptu picnic. The barge takes the  trawler in tow and we are back  in Misery Creek by early  afternoon. But we have lost  another working-day and  once-cheerful George wears a  long face.  That evening in the bunkhouse, I see an aspect of  heroin-addiction that will  strengthen my resolve to  never use the stuff. Clanton  and Turk by this time, are  given to openly discussing  their junk-habits with us. They  have brought a couple of caps  back from town with them  but have somehow lost their  outfit. Thus they have no way  in which to inject the drug.  They pace back and forth  frustratedly. Finally they  both head for the washroom  and are gone for sometime.  They return  high  but  with  bloody arms. Apparently,  they have cut themselves  and somehow absorbed the  drug through the wounds, a  last-ditch, pretty revolting but  apparently marginally-effective method of taking a fix.  There is no way I want any  part of such madness.  Tuesday morning finds us  back on the job. Brodsky and I  stay at thc bottom tree while  thc rest of them trail up to the  centre-spar below the bluffs.  The trackside machine is  another small Skagit that looks  almost as ill-kept as George's  ancient donkey. The yarder  has not been used for months  and Brodsky has a bit of  trouble getting it started.  Thc strawlinc has been strung  out up the hill already but the  haulback cable has not yet  been around. They have been  using it for some purpose and  it lies in a couple of coils on  the deck of the machine. The  strawline has been left threaded through the high-lead  block on the spartree. I hook  the end of it to the haulback  eye and Brodsky goes ahead.  The lines tighten and the haul-  back begins to climb at a  steep angle towards the block.  It has almost reached it when  there is a sudden twang and  the haulback comes thudding  back like a shot snake. The  frayed strawline-eye has  parted under the strain and  the broken end lies in a tangle,  a hundred feet up the hill.  "Hey, can you rethread that  bastard?" hollers George  from halfway up the bluffs,  "I have to fetch my belt and  spurs from the colddecker."  "Yeah, okay," I yell back  foolhardily. I've never been  asked to go up a tree before  and under other circumstances, would have found some  way to squirm out of it. But  for some reason I feel reckless. George knows nothing  about  my  fear  of heights.  Hell, if I intend to stay logging, it is about time I try to  conquer it. Chris comes to  the edge of the hill and asks  if I want a hand. I reply in the  negative. It would be an easy  out but by this time, I have  determined to try it myself.  God, I should be able to thread  a simple line I  1 pull another strawline-  extension off the drum and  coil it at the foot of the spar.  The pass-line (simply another  piece of strawline with a  chain on one end) runs  through a small block at the  very top of the tree. Both ends  are tied out of the way. I  free them, hook one to the  strawline-drum and take the  other to the foot of the spar.  There is no turning back now.  The pass-chain goes round  your butt and hooks into a  ring, forming a crude bosun's  chair, I secure it, fasten one  end of my coiled threading-  cxtension to the ring and  give Brodsky the high-sign.  The chain bites into my rear-  end and then, for better or  worse, I am going up.  To be continued  Port Mellon  Auxiliary  The regular meeting of the  Port Mellon Hospital Auxiliary was held at the home of  Wilma Sim, Langdale, on  January 10. There were nine  members present.  Reports were heard from  the various committees. Eight  members worked 251 hours  at the Thrift Shop. Twelve  members worked 2S5 hours  at the Gift Shop. Volunteers  hosted a Father's Day party  for the patients in extended  care and also assisted at the  Christmas party at the hospital.  We now have sixteen members including one new  member, Harper Simmons,  whom we are happy to welcome.

If you have, you'll surely  enjoy it for its sheer luscious-  ness, for a visual enchantment which cannot be captured on the boob toob.  You might enjoy our next  offering, 8'/i, too. 8'/i is an  autobiographical Fellini film.  Thought of only in that light,  it must be interesting. It is  about a film director who is  trying to finish a film. I  haven't seen it, but the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  treasurer (bookkeeper, accountant?), Bob Morgan has,  and a commentary of it is promised for next week's paper.  The film was rated "general"  screened. It may be all well  and good for twenty to thirty  people to enjoy a minority  interest film once in a while,  but we would need to be averaging a hundred to put us in  a position where we could  haggle over film rentals.  There would seem to be few  films in that category which  would draw a maximum of  one hundred.  One possibility for the  February 27 screening is  Laurence Olivier's Richard III  for which some requests have  been    received. Have  you seen that film? Do you  think it would be worth seeing  again? (The Kwahtahmoss  Film Society screened this film  by the British Columbia mo-  about eight years ago.)

Elliiiiihum >     I  Astrology   :  |.������V*VVV f������>Vy.��r��.  By Rae Ellingham  Week commencing: January 29. General Notes!  Conditions are similar to those  of last week. The Sun, New  Moon, Mercury and Mars  oppose Jupiter bringing still  more rushed decisions and  thoughtless acts. Mars, planet  of impulse, conjoins Mercury,  planet of speech, promising a  weekend of hasty words,  arguments and sarcasm.  Babies born this week will  have strong humanitarian  principles. Many will love  the sound of their own voices.  Mid-week arrivals may become dreamers or drifters.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  Focus is still on clubs, organizations, fraternities, group  activities and local projects.  Those involved have to speak  decisively regarding new  approach and long-range  expectations. Old friends and  acquaintances drift towards  other activities. Expect to  enjoy fresh social contacts,  Now's the time to put summer  plans on paper.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Accent is still on career,  job, fame, honours and local  reputation. You'll have the  energy to promote recent  achievements and aim for  fresh goals. Arguments with  superiors are still in the air.  Be warned that sarcasm may  be your downfall. Women  seeking promotion or long-  awaited recognition succeed  at last.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Your thoughts are still  focused on deeper knowledge,  religion, philosophy, travel  and long-distance communications. It's time to enrich the  mind and enrol in courses  linked to current interests.  University or college students  have the energy to produce  first-class assignments.  People and affairs far away  will soon demand your attention.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Emphasis is on other people's money, property and  possessions. Getting too involved in partner's financial  predicament becomes exhausting. Meanwhile, your own  tax and insurance matters  require new approach. Advice is to spend a quiet evening sifting and sorting personal papers and documents.  Try not to lose your temper  over shared expenses.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Accent is on all forms of  partnerships and agreements.  Marriages and involvements  are now ready for fresh  arrangements and fairer  routines. Loved one is determined to prove a  point.  A BENEFIT DANCE FOR ;  TUE EILEEN G-LA55FOQD  MEMORIAL TU��ATR��.  *^��.  ���/  [WITH  !;��� Cowrie Street, Sechelt, B. C.

Ignore threats from hotheaded associates.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept,22)  Focus is on employment  and health matters. Co-workers will be feeling snappy or  argumentative. Nevertheless,  now's the time to solve work-  scene problems using courage  and fresh ideas. Be bold in  speech and writing. Health  upsets are linked to stress,  strain and overwork. Current  flu bugs are out to get Vlrgos.  LIBRA (Sepl.23-Oct.23)  Energy is directed towards  social activities, pleasures  and pastimes. You'll feel the  urge to crawl out of domestic  rut and locate new sources  of entertainment. It's time you  met new faces and enjoyed  stimulating conversations.  Gambling, flirtations and  risks will be on the agenda.  Children may be rude and  unco-operative.  SCORPIO (Oct. M-Nov.22)  Spotlight is still focused  on domestic changes. Prepare  to establish fresh routines  and schedules. Family members may be outspoken or  rude. Remember who's the  boss and refuse to step down.  At last, real estate propositions roll in. Buy or sell now;  regret later. Continue to prefect home against fire.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Expect an increase in short  journeys, friendly visits,  correspondence and phone  calls. It's your turn to be  running around in circles,  rushing here and there.  The affairs of brothers,  sisters or neighbours will  need original approach. Highway driving needs more concentration during the next  four weeks. Watch out for  trapped fingers this weekend.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jam.19)  Accent is still onomohey,  finances, property and personal goods. Recent carelessness with cash requires  new approach to spending  and saving. At this time, be  neither a lender or a borrower. Have patience with persons handling cash, especially  bank tellers or shop assistants. Avoid purchase of  mechanical items till later.  AQUARIUS (Ju.20-Feb.18)  The Sun, Moon, Mercury  and Mars in your sign continue to bring energy and  intelligence to current projects. It is hoped that your  life is moving in more stimulating directions. Optimism  still overwhelms you so continue to check details of progress. Although the urge to  communicate is strong, don't  talk people's heads off at the  weekend  PISCES (Fcb.19-Mar.20)  Focus is again on private  affairs and secret activities.  Anyone trapped, isolated,  confined or restricted should  use time planning new beginnings. Believe that escape  is possible in the spring.  Meanwhile, prepare for involvement with hospitals,  institutions, the sick and  lonely. Have nothing to do  with gossip or trickery this  weekend.

Published in 1977 by Chart-  well Books, edited by Anthony  Addison, the book provides  instant relief from the insatiable, overwhelming, and  frequently embarrassing curiosity of childhood, in an immediately accessible form.  The complete index of questions answered provided in  the back of the book and its  lavish photographs and illustrations make it strong competition for any children's  encyclopedia I've ever seen  and a viable alternative to  many adult encyclopedias  whose method of data arrangement sometimes makes  it difficult to obtain quick  answers to specific questions.  The questions themselves  were selected by a team of  teachers and students who  compiled those questions  most commonly asked by  both children and adulta.The  result is a fascinating book to  browse in for an idle moment  and a fine reference book for  the whole family. (I mean,  how long can you get by on  "Go ask your mother"?)  The book is hard-bound,  $14.50 a copy, and available  at the N.D.P. Bookstore,  My thanks to Ken Barker for  bringing it to my attention.  While we're on the subject of books for kids, Ken  Barker also told me about and  lent me a copy of The Canadian Children's Annual,  1979 (Potlatch Publications,  ed. Robert F.Nielsen), a  magazine-format issue that is  a gold-mine of stories, poems,  comic strips, puzzles, facts  and fantasy and sense and  nonsense for children of reading age.

Community TV exciting possibility  By Maryanne West  Recently film director Robert Altman (remember  Nashville and A Wedding?)  suggested that in the best  interests of the country everybody connected with television should go on strike, and  stay on strike for three years.  Hardly anyone has a good  word to say about television  these days. We blame it for  just about all the ills which  beset our society. Oddly  enough the same things were  being said in the Thirties  about that comparatively  new invention, filml  Like a number of other  things we use, it is not inherently bad in itself. The  connotation of good or evil  cannot be applied to atoms,  electric currents, radio waves  and whatever else goes into  the technology which produces television. But we are responsible for how we use it.  We could perhaps try to use  it more intelligently ��� as a  tool for communication and  understanding rather than  just as a purveyor of cold  remedies, toilet tissue and  deodorants, for spectator  sport and mass entertainment. Not, let me hasten to  add, that there's anything  wrong either with any of these  things, but they aren't all of  life by a long way.  Instead of switching on the  set to watch whatever is  offered us we could use  television ourselves, to talk  to our neighbours, to entertain and share our talents, and  actively involve ourselves in  the life of our community.  Some day we will have a  wired community and a television channel of our own.  We will be able to twirl  the dial and talk directly to  our elected representatives  to discuss the well-being and  needs of the' area. We will  arrange all sorts of entertainment and enlightenment,  providing an opportunity for  young and old to gain experience and explore ways to  develop talent. We will be  limited only by the limits of  our imagination and creativity, our success in turning  problems into challenges  which can be overcome.  That day is not yet today as  at Honeywell, but it could  bc a lot nearer than we think.  CARSANDTRUCKS  Rental ���Leasing  ���Also-  Domestic and  Industrial  Equipment  Seaside Rentals  885-2848  It's a possibility which has  been brought a great deal  nearer by the enthusiasm of a  group of grade eleven and  twelve students, the Elphinstone Student Research  Productions team. Needing  an outlet for the technical  skills they are learning in  their Communications 11  course, a course with the  emphasis on community  involvement, they have approached John Thomas of  Coast Cablevision about  activating the Community  Channel which presently  tells only the time, weather  and the occasional announcement.  John is sympathetic to the  students' vision and willing  to help both with expertise  and money as it becomes  available. John will of course  be required by the terms of his  licence to return some of his  profit to the community when  the service is more or less  universally available. It is a  difficult and expensive area  to service and John and the  C.R.T.C. feel his first priority  at this time must be to extend  cable to those who want it  as fast as it is economically  feasible.  However if the community  wishes to take an active role  in bringing that 'some day'  forward to the foreseeable  future, John is ready and  willing to help.

Our member of Parliament at Ottawa, In a  brochure this week, says in part: "Admittedly, governments at all levels are expanding  and intruding more and more into our lives.  The growth of government concerns me  deeply. Nevertheless, you as citizens of  Canada are asking more of your government  and we are trying to meet your demands  without creating too much bureaucracy." As a businessman, taxpayer  and 'plain Joe' citizen I see the added cost to taxpayers and consumers every time the activist consumer groups yelp for more  government controls. We needlessly pay for a huge bureaucracy  checking on things and creating more and more foolish regulations that any reasonably Intelligent consumer can very  ably do for himself. Every time we ask the government to  do something which we can do ourselves it costs in  terms of money, time & personal freedom. Healthy  competition Is the consumer's best protection.  If you get a bad deal, you choose to shop else-  & generally, tell your friends. No business  man In his right mind looks for bad public  relations.  I i Coast News, January 30,1979.

Our deepest sympathy is  extended to his wife Grace,  and all relatives and friends.

With energy conservation  being in the headlines these  days have you observed how  many more chimneys are be  ginning to smoke agains as  wood stoves and heaters  become more fashionable.  Which prompted me to reread the poem "Smoke  Signals" by Hubert Evans in  our recent book, Remembering Roberts Creek. The  last verse is particularly  significant in the light of  modern trends and we can  hope that the occupants will  begin to communicate more  and more. Which is what our  Elphinstone New Horizons is  all about ��� communicating  wilh your neighbours and enjoying a social afternoon in its  various activities. "Togetherness" is the name of our  game.

Editor:  I hope that none of your  readers will ever have the misfortune of having to deal with  the administration of St.  Mary's Hospital. It has been a  nightmare of bureaucratic  arrogance and scorn for more  than one person on the coast.  And here is the latest:  A very well-qualified physiotherapist, Ms Dorothy  Jackson, had moved to the  coast a few years ago, and has  since been commuting to work  in town. About two years ago,  she applied to work at St.  Mary's. She had a friendly  conversation with the head of  the department, Mr. Hunter,  who had left her then with  the understanding that she  would be contacted as soon as  a position became available.  A year later, the hospital  had indeed advertised for a  new physiotherapist. Since the  ad was rather vague, Ms  Jackson called to inquire  about the position, but by that  time, nobody wanted to talk to  her. So she politely turned to  the administrator, Mr, Vucurevich, for help. His response  could be summed up in these  incredible statements of his:  "You have to learn to be  rejected,"; "We are not obliged to you for anything,";  *> MM M M M M M M M M M M M M M.M M.M M.M M.M M M.M M.M.M.M.M.M.M.M t  OPEN  GIBSONS  2ND HAND STORE  i  :  =  WE BUY, SELL, TRADE AND  TAKE GOODS ON CONSIGNMENT.

It has to be said quite  clearly that Ms Jackson ia  well-known in the professional  community for her high quality work and good communication. In fifteen continuous  years as a physiotherapist,  there has never bein a complaint about her or from  her, but rather praise and  respect. She is also a council  member of the licensing body  for physiotherapists which is  elected from within the profession.  Several months passed  during which the position was  vacant and no longer advertised in B.C., while Mr. Hunter worked the department  single-handedly, and even  shut down for a vacation;  much to the detriment of patient care.  Recently, a physiotherapist  was hired from Australia.  Not from the coast, not  from the province, not from  the country, but from Australia.  In December, Ms Jackson  had written to every member  of our local hospital board and  to the Minister of Health.  She has not yet had a reply  from the Minister, and the  board referred her inquiry  back to Mr. Vucurevich. His  answer was abrupt and adding  further insult:  "Fortunately, hospitals or  other institutions have retained the right to select  employees who are best suited  for their needs and who will  fit harmoniously into organizational climates."  Ms Jackson was never  given the courtesy of a professional interview. She has  lost a lot of sleep wondering  what she may have done  wrong. She still has no idea.  She wants to know if there  was any indication that she  might not be suited for their  needs or that she would not  "fit harmoniously into organizational climates". She knows  that her previous and her present part-time employer were  not contacted. Is there some  secret file on her?  hired sraight from Australia  indicate to have any qualification or qualities beyond  those of Ms Jackson? What  were the criteria of this odd  selection?  2. Why was Ms Jackson not  given the courtesy of a professional interview, but rather  rude and dissuasive statements made by Mr. Vucurevich?  3. Why was that position  open for five months, to the  obvious detriment of patient  care?  4. It has to be asked whether  the reasons for this reponse  were of a nature which was  not in the interest of the  hospital. Were there any  personal reasons? Was this  response caused by the fear  that the high qualification of  Ms Jackson might present a  threat to the present standards of the physiotherapy  department? Or was this done  because the present head of  the department, Mr. Hunter,  may intend to open a private  practice on the coast? Was  there a conflict of interest?  Our age may well be described as that of overblown  institutionalism. In the communist as well as in our corporation states, public and  private administrations are  becoming alarmingly inflated,  irresponsible, irresponsive,  and unaccountable to those  who pay for them. The authoritarian, secretive and  flippant manner in which Ms  Jackson was treated by the  administrator of 'our' hospital  is a scandal and a threat to  every free man. I am urging  anyone who can offer any  help or suggestions to contact Ms Jackson or me at  this address:  Peter Hauke,  By John Hind Smith  On Tuesday January 23,  three members of the local  Search and Rescue group  went to Capilano College to  listen to Dr. John Heywood of  the Department of Biology at  the University of Victoria and  were very impressed by the  man and the information  he had lo impart.  I call hypothermia sneaky  because it sneaks up on a  person and you are not even  aware of what is going on.  It is conceivable that you could  be dead before anyone else  realizes what is going on.  In a short article like this  it is not possible to explain  this phenomenon in much  detail but basically it is caused  by the cooling of deep body  tissues. When that temperature reaches 30��C (86��F)  death due to heart failure Is  certain.  Dr. Heywood is recognized  as one of the leading authorities on this subject  and has probably done more  to make people realize the;  importance of it. His researchers at the university  have gone further than just  talking about it and have produced some practical solutions. The first was aimed at  the water safety aspect and  took the form of a jacket which  is a very wearable and acceptable article of clothing. It  converts to a mini wet suit  which is designed to protect  vital heat loss areas. It has a  built in bright red hood to  protect the head and increase  the visibility of the wearer.

Up until  now the recognized way of  treating a case of hypothermia  has been body contact (warm  person or persons in a huddle  with victim, in a sleeping  bag), hot drinks, and hot  baths, etc. Most of these are  aimed at warming the vital  parts from the outside but now  the emphasis is turning to  warming from the inside out  and to do this, Dr. Heywood  and his team have developed  a gadget which does just  that.  Basically it is just a  steam generator. The steam is  mixed with air and fed via  small standard acetylene  tank available almost anywhere. Hypothermia is a very  complex problem and to try  and go into any technical  details here would be impossible, mainly because of lack  of knowledge on my part and  lack of space, but if you are  interested and want to know  more about it, the subject will  be dealt with quite intensively  at the March 9 meeting of the  Wildlife Club.  Just keep this little fact  in mind. Recent examples  have shown that persons who  are 'apparently' dead from  hypothermia or drowning in  cold water are often able to  be resuscitated successfully  even after quite a long period  without breathing or blood  circulation (ten to forty  minutes!!). The main reason  is that cold body tissues (eg.  brain) require less oxygen  than when warm. Therefore, don't give up. Maintain  artificial ventilation and circulation until medical assistance is available.  The best defence against  this sneaky killer is to avoid  tubes   to   an   oxygen-type exposure by being prepared,  face mask where the tempera-  Most accidents occur between  ture can be regulated within  very fine ranges. The steam/  air mixture is not under  pressure at all and is drawn  into the patient by his own  breathing mechanism. Basically this is what this system  is all about but it is still in the  development stage and it may  be some time before these  things are produced on a commercial basis.'

As such, he was  in charge of all the immigration and consequently travelled frequently to and from  India.  On one such visit in nineteen twenty-five, he was offered two diamond rings as  gifts for my mother and me.  This offer, in his eyes, represented a bribe and was  promptly refused. Apparently it was just a token of esteem. Unable to bestow their  appreciation in this manner,  the natives decided on a different tack. On his next visit,  my father was greeted by a  band and lavish festivities in  his honour which embarrassed  him profoundly. My mother  observed that it served him  right for not accepting the  rings.  Bribery did not concern my  father lightly. He was adamantly opposed to it. I recall  hearing of an earlier incident  while I was still at school in  England. He was acting as  magistrate and a Chinaman  offered to buy him off. My  father was extremely upset  that the man should consider  him so easily-corruptible. He  was not above accepting  anything he construed to be  an honest present however  such as the gifts of mangoes  we often received from Madras.  I have in my possession, a  silver cup and saucer, given  my father for my brother and  me during one of his visits  to India. The occasion of his  acceptance of this particular  gift from an Indian friend  was almost marred when my  tropics invariably practised  their stealthy trade in the  nude. Their bodies were heavily oiled, enabling them to  slip eel-like from anyone's  grasp.  My father used to tell an  amusing story of those times  that certainly typifies English  unflappability not to mention  male chauvinism. He was in  the billiard room at his club  when one of the players was  informed that his wife had  just given birth. It was the  man's first child but he  showed no excitement and  allowed that he would finish  his game. Shortly, the messenger appeared again with  the announcement of twins.  This failed to elicit much response from the new father  either. He muttered that he'd  be over shortly. On the messenger's third appearance  however, the man flung down  his cue. "I must put a stop to  all this damn nonsense I"  he declared and exited indignantly,  During the First World  War, my father was in charge  of censoring mail between the  two countries and abroad.  He turned up some humorous  messages, especially in the  cables. One read: THE HAND  THAT ROCKED THE  CRADLE'S KICKED THE  BUCKET. My father and his  colleagues puzzled over this  for some time, thinking it  some new form of code but it  proved to be a literal statement. Some husband, even  more off-hand than the man  in the billiard room was simply  informing a friend that his  wife had died. Another cable  from England stated cryptically: CUSHIONS ARRIVED  We finally reached Adelaide safely. While there, I  contacted some tropical  disease and nearly died. The  doctors were apparently unsure as to its exact nature  but I was prescribed a diet of  raw meat juice. The only way  my mother could get me to  take it was by mixing it with  raspberry jam. Between  infusions of this rather disgusting mixture and my  mother's tender care, I  managed to pull through. We  returned to sweltering Madras where the heat hovered  around a hundred in the  shade. Australia of course, Is  by no means a cool country,  but my mother was accustomed to its temperatures.  Thankfully, my father soon  finished his course and we  were able to return to Malaya  where the heat is some  ten degrees less on the  average and the nights cooler.  Of course, I was much too  young to recall any of these  early events and know only  what my parents told me.  When I visited India years  later however, as a grown  woman, I certainly agreed  with them about the heat.  I never liked India except in  the hills where it was quite  pleasant. Malaya, I always  loved, but then I was born  there. It was not just the  milder climate but the attitude of the people, too. It has  always seemed to me a much  more cosmopolitan country.

On  another occasion, while my  father was away, my mother  was awakened by suspicious-;  sounding noises in the night.  She was unable to call the  servants who were out in their  own quarters at the back.  Getting up, she took my  father's unloaded shotgun and  walked up and down the verandah with it, hoping to scare  the intruder away. The ruse  succeeded.

Chances are it does.  This year, some 80% of all private passenger  and light commercial vehicle owners will earn safe  driving vehicle discounts worth about $90,000,000.  So, being careful can save money as well as lives.  Read the questions and answers below. If  your vehicle qualifies and has a claim-free record for  one year, it is eligible for a 15% discount; for two  years, a 25% discount; for three years, a 32.5%  discount.  If your Autoplan renewal form doesn't show  a discount, and you think your vehicle is eligible,  check with your Autoplan Agent or Motor Licence  Office.  Why a Safe Driving VEHICLE Discount  rather than a Safe DRIVER Discount?  Because this program is designed to  encourage safe driving and to emphasize that vehicle  owners are responsible for the safe operation of their  vehicles at all times, no matter who is driving.  Will ANY accident count against me?  Not necessarily. Eligibility for a discount is  not affected by a hit-and-run claim, a no-fault accident benefit claim, claims against Comprehensive or  Specified Perils coverage. Otherwise, any claim for  which payment has been made for collision, property  damage or bodily injury disqualifies your vehicle.  How are the discounts calculated?  1. The 32.5% three-year discount is  deducted from your premium if your vehicle has a  claim-free record from October 1,1975 to  September 30,1978. You must also have paid basic  Autoplan insurance premiums for a minimum of six  months during each of the years March 1,1978 to  February 28,1979; March 1,1977 to February 28,  1978 and for one month during March 1,1976 to  February 28,1977.  2. The 25% two-year discount is deducted  from your premium if your vehicle has a claim-free  record from October 1,1976 to September 30,1978.  You must also have paid basic Autoplan insurance  premiums for a minimum of six months during each  of the years March 1,1978 to February 28,1979 and  March 1,1977 to February 28,1978,  3. The 15% one-year discount is deducted  from your premium if your vehicle has a claim-free  record from October 1,1977 to September 30,1978.  You must also have paid basic Autoplan insurance  premiums for a minimum of six months during the  year March 1,1978 to February 28,1979.  Are Safe Driving Vehicle Discounts  Transferrable?  Yes, in certain circumstances. For example,  they may be transferred:  1. from an eligible vehicle to a replacement  vehicle, even if the licence number plates change;  2. when vehicle ownership changes within  a family, for example between husband and wife or  between parent and child, provided the principal  operator remains the same;  3. if the vehicle registration is transferred  from an individual's name to a company name, or  vice versa, provided the individual owns at least  95% of the company;  4. from a vehicle leased from one company  to a vehicle leased from another company, provided  the previous lease operator is willing to forfeit the  discount earned on that vehicle;  5. from a leased vehicle on which a contract  has been terminated to a vehicle purchased by the  lessee, provided that person was shown as the lessee  on the registration, and the lease operator is willing  to forfeit the discount earned on the leased vehicle;  6. from a privately owned vehicle to a  leased .vehicle provided the lessee is named as such  on the new registration.  Aie there any exclusions from the Safe  Driving Vehicle Discount?  Yes, a few. For example:  1. vehicle owners who are indebted to the  Insurance Corporation;  2. special coverage policies or premiums,  with the exception ofa Special Coverage Policy for  Motorcycle Own Damage Insurance;  3. vehicles which are part ofa fleet in 1979  or were part ofa fleet in 1978;  4. vehicles insured under a Comprehensive  Garage Policy in 1978 or 1979.  If you have any questions about thc  eligibility of your vehicle, consult your Autoplan  Agent or Motor Licence Office.  ��� INSURANCE  CORPORATION  Of BRITISH COLUMBIA  UK  WmM  mmmmmmmmmmmm9m99^^m9Umm^m^a.^  Motor Vehicle Agent 885-3744  LOCATED IN  Sunshine Coast      *W-  Credit Union     Tr  Cowrie Street, Sechelt       685-3744  COMPLETE SERVICE NEW OR RENEWAL  If IU       PH0IiECTIDN PLUS SERVICE       73 [  t i Coast News, January 30,1979.

From all reports,  our boys more than held their  own with teams from the  North Shore and Fraser  Valley. It was quite apparent  that the skating skills of our  players were slightly weaker,  due to the few hours on the  ice, but certainly the desire  and enthusiasm at this level  more than made up for it.  Twin Creek won and tied on  the Saturday morning, then  lost Sunday morning, but  advanced to the Consolation  Finals for third and fourth  place. Against one of the Fraser Valley teams Twin Creek  took an early 2���0 lead only  to see it vanish in a 3���2  heartbreaking loss. Coaches  and parents were more than  games, you now can attest  to the competitiveness of  Peewee brand hockey.  This weekend sees four  more exhibition games at the  atefia with Powell River sending down an Atom team,  while Squamish will be sending a Midget���Juvenile team  to play our Elson Glass  and Credit Union Rangers  teams. At the same time, T&T  Trucking will be in Powell  River, while Tyee Flyers will  be in Squamish. Good luck to  all these clubs.

Care of Horses  By Carmen Peters  You've thought over the  type of horse that you want  and now you are ready to go  out and try your luck.  Here are a few things that  you should perhaps ask the  vendor, when you have come  close to a decision.  1. Is the horse subject to  colic or any other illness.  Some horses have less resistance than others.  2. Has he ever had shoes?  Does he stand well for a  farrier? If a horse doesn't  like having his feet done,  chances are he's either been  injured or has been improperly handled while getting his  hooves done.  3. Has he been tube-wormed  and given shots? When was  the last time? Tube worming  is very important. Regular  wormers on the market do  well for most worms but do  not achieve the purpose of  getting rid of bots and larvae.  4. Does he keep well in a  stall? If he fidgets in a stall  possibly he's spoiled or he's  been getting too much grain.  A spoiled horse in this case,  is one who thinks that if he  gets excited, he'll either get  turned out or food will be  thrown in to him to keep him  quiet.  5. a)How much grain and  what kind does he get?  There are many types of grain  on the market. Many people  buy the pre-mixed kinds,  which are great for a horse  that is being ridden all the  time. But for a horse that is  ridden only on weekends, it  is probably too much. Find out  if he gets pre-mixed or if he  gets his grain mixed by hand.  Example: bran, oats and  vitamins.  b)What type of hay does he  normally eat? Local hay is the  cheapest and has less protein. If you feed local then  you should give him a little  extra protein from the grain.  Check with your vet for a  feeding programme that is  suited for your horse.  6. Is he blanketed in winter?  A horse in his natural state  is better off without blankets.  Show horses and clipped  horses are the exception. I  prefer to let the horse grow  his winter coat. The only time  I feel it necessary to blanket  the horse is if it is sick.  7. Is the horse an easy  keeper? Does he lose weight  easily? If a horse loses weight  easily, it could be because he  is nervous or he uses up all  his energy keeping warm  when outside. If the latter is  the reason, put some corn in  his feed if hand mixing. Pre-  mixed grains usually have  corn.  8. Does he have any bad  habits, such as biting, kicking, rearing, trailering,  cribbing, catching, acting up  when saddling or nastiness  with certain types of people.  If a horse rears or bucks or  displays any of the above  habits, think about whether or  not it is worth the trouble to  train the horse (cribbing is  when a horse chews wood and  sucks wind).  9. Has he had any serious  injuries or illnesses? Make  sure his legs and back are  sound. Have a veterinarian  check him over for breathing,  lameness, kidney disorders  (could cause back problems-)  and whatever else you might  think could be causing a  certain problem.  10. If a horse is used to a  stall find out if he eats straw.  Eating straw could case a  straw belly or even worse,  colic.  11. Ask if they object to the  horse being checked by your  vet. If they do object, ask  why. Chances are the horse is  not as sound as you were  advised. Or he is terrified of  vets. I would go on to look at  another horse if this were the  case. You don't need trouble  right away.  These are just a few points  to ask. If a horse hasn't had  his shots or tube worming  recently, find out when the  last time a vet was out to  check him. A horse that  hasn't been properly wormed,  could become extremely ill  and die. Tube worming is  best done after the first frost  and early spring. Shots are  important also. Several types  of shots are recommended:  influenza; tetanus; encephalitis; rhino. Find out from your  vet which ones he feels your  horse should have.  To be con tinned  Journalism  workshop  A one-day workshop for  Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast area student  newspapers will be held February 23 at Vanier Senior  Secondary School in Courtenay.  It will offer sessions in  news, sports, editorial and  column writing, editing, photography, layout and advertising. They will be taught by  professional journalists from  Courtenay and Campbell  River. Courtenay lawyer Jim  Dow will speak on libel.  The workshop is open to any  teacher and to secondary students with a limit of four  students from any school.  There is no charge.  Organizers are Courtenay  teachers Brent Reid and Peter  Feltham. Application forms  can be obtained from Peter  Feltham, 1924 Comox Avenue, Comox, V9N 4A2.

LOWER GIBSONS, NEXT TO OMEGA RESTAURANT Wildlife  corner  By Ian Corrancc  there myself this time. It..  at 7:30 in Room 112 at Chatelech High School.  Odds'n ends  Talking with Wayne Diakow last week and he tells me  that he spotted thirteen banded herons in the Pender area,  so if people could keep a  lookout for them, it would be  valuable information for  Keith. He'll be back up here  shortly, to cany on the programme he started last year.  There are two bands on the  birds. One is the aluminum  international band; it's just  above the ankle. The other  band is above the leg joint ���  I guess you could say the  knee ��� and it is quite large  and orange coloured. If it's  possible to make out the number on this band, it would be a  handy piece of information  to pass on to Keith. So if you  do, give me a call, I'll be talk-  Triangle bland  At the next meeting of the  Birding Club on THURSDAY,  February 1, Gary Kaiser, the  populations biologist for the  Wildlife Service, will bc up to ing to him soon,  give a talk and slide show on     By the way, a few people  the birds of Triangle Island, have  been  asking  me  for  off the  north-west  end  of copies of the heron pictures  Vancouver Island. Gary has which are displayed at the  been working on the Christ- Heron    Restaurant.    Keith  mas bird counts that take Simpson had the negatives  place on the mainland every and he sent them up to me,  year. There will probably be so if anybody wants copies,  some discussion on starting a I'll hold onto them for a week  - similar programme up here.  Rhonda,     who     helped  Keith Simpson in the heron  banding    programme    last  ��� year,  was on  the  trip  to  Triangle   Island   when   the  slides were shot,  and she  raved about the amount and  variety  of bird  life  there.  Rhinoceros auklets,  puffins,  i shearwaters, etc., so it should  1 be interesting. Heck, I'm even  going  to try  and  make  it  or two before sending them  off.  Vince Braithwate had a  look at the two eagles at  Hopkins. It had been thought  they may be golden, but he  figures they are just our normal residents, the bald  eagles.

Monday  Man Alive: 10:30 p.m., Whatever Happened to Sin?  Apparently alive and drum-  TUESDAY, JANUARY  23,1979:  The disclosure last week  that a massive sell-out of B.C.  industry to foreign corporations is underway came only  a few days after the much  publicized fight between the  B.C. government and Canadian Pacific over control of  MacMillan-Bloedel.  Was the dispute for real or  was it a sham?  With all six of his press  secretaries working overtime,  Bill Bennett took on the CP  giant, charging that, although  they already have considerable interest in M-B, they could  have no more because they are  Easterners and M-B must be  controlled by British Columbians, "B.C. is not for sale,"  the premier said. At last the  CP giant backed down and  Bennett appeared the victor.  But within hours of that  victory, Dave Barrett called a  press conference in Victoria  and revealed the sale of B.C.  industry to foreign ownership since the election of  Bill Bennett as premier has  been accelerating at an explosive rate. In 1976 there  were' nine sales of B.C. companies to foreign owners;  in 1977 there were twenty-  six such sales; and in 1978,  thirty-nine such sales. All of  these occurred with the approval of the provincial cabinet and in some cases the provincial government actually  talked the federal government into approving the sales  after the federal Foreign  Investment Review Agency  had objected to them.  These sales involved a  large number of resource  industries and several of the  deals included tracts of forest  land as well as coal and petroleum licenses. In all, 4,550  B.C. jobs were affected by  the sales.  So while Bill Bennet was  objecting to CP taking further control of M-B, he had  no objection to companies like  Ruhrkohle AG of West Germany buying Emkay Canada  ..Natural Resources Ltd. along  with forty-two coal licenses in  the Elk River Valley. And  when the Louisiana-Pacific  Corporation of the U.S.A.  wanted to buy Salmo Forest  Products over the initial objections of the federal government, Bennett's own government had no objection whatsoever. Two of the companies  that were sold to foreign  owners were actually sold by  the government itself. Yes,  the government that believes  B.C, is not for sale actually  sold Gray Line Ltd. of Victoria to a Seattle company and  Panco Poultry to a Chicago  company.  In none of the seventy-  four cases of sales to foreign  owners disclosed by Barrett  did the sale represent investment for new industry. There  was no case where more jobs  were created, and in some of  the cases the effect could be  to threaten jobs as foreign  companies buy to sit on future  resource deposits.  Yet Bill Bennett never objected.  So we are back to the  original question: was that  dispute over MacMillan-  Bloedel shares for real or was  it a sham?  Firemen  The elected officers for the  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department for 1979 are:  Chief Carl Horner; Deputy  Chief, Mel Buckmaster;  Captain III Hail, Cliff Mahl-  man; Captain #2 Hall, Bob  Gledson; Lieutenant #1 Hall,  Ian Harding; Lieutenant H2  Hall, Blair Kennett; Training  Officer, Ken Fiedler; Publicity, Bob Blakeman; Assistant Fire Marshal, Village,  Brian Knowles; Assistant  Fire Marshal, Rural, Stan  Turner;     Secretary,      Stan  Stubbs.  the  PERSON  who stokes the fire is the chief factor in  the efficiency of your fireplace or heater.

Fund raising events will  be necessary for any and all  successful candidates and it  is hoped the public will support our girls as they have in  the past.  Our District has a large  enrolment this year with seventy-six girls and we are  expecting an increase again  in September. The National  Guiding programme is in for  a change with the addition of  a new age group of girls from  twelve to fifteen. This will  leave Guides at ages nine to  twelve. Rangers from fifteen  to seventeen and a possibility  of Brownies from six to nine.  These changes will occur gradually and only if there are  leaders available. We are  looking at the probability of  the need for another Brownie  Pack in September so new  leaders will be needed regardless of any other changes.  We are also looking for a  replacement for District  Commissioner, Gloria Fyles,  who completes a five year  term this spring, ire Commissioner's job is one of administration, co-ordination of  all units, looking after the  local association and its  finances, and above all, ensuring that the girls have good  leadership and are enjoying  the programme. No previous  training is required but a sincere interest is necessary  along with a certain amount of  time. Training for guiders  and Commissioners is always  available and a very successful weekend training for about  sixty blue and brown guiders  and Commissioners was held  at Camp Olave on the 20th of  January. Our local Ranger  group prepared all the meals  between the Friday and Sunday and did an excellent  job. Well done girlsl Anyone wishing further information may contact Mrs. Fyles  at 886-7714.  Thinking Day will be held  jointly with the Scouts during  the latter part of February  and the next local association  meeting will be held on February 8 in the United Church  Hall at 3:30 p.m.  Gbmi Where    me usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded for" the  correct location of the above drawn from the barrel  Send your entries to the Coast News, Box 460,  Gibsons.
