" X,  The Sunshine  Published at Qlbsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  S*ee_OiMMafl.ta|M_)oBN��.4r02  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  August 21,1979  Volume 32, Number 34  A flag for the Chief  Vince Bothwell of Granthams flew his Red Ensign at half mast in honour of John  Diefenbaker. '  More research needed  Swap rezoning declined  by Carol Bciger  In a planner's report  presented at the August 12  regular meeting of the Village  of Sechelt Council, the  application from Shorncliffe  for rezoning of Block 7 to  Commercial 1 from Residential  1 was "declined".  In putting the Village Hall  and lot up for tender, the sale  was subject to the Village  acquiring a one-acre lot for the  proposed Joint-Use building to  house the Sunshine Coast  Regional District offices and  the local School Board as well  as the Village office.  The property has been sold  but the intended one-acre in  Block 7 for the Joint-Use  building has now been lost with  Planner Dennis Walton's  recommendation not to rezone  Shorncliffe property.  "We offered to swap, to  facilitate them and share some  good faith by them rezoning  our property," said Hayden  Killam of Shorncliffe.  "We asked for this rezoning  in June Because council wanted  us to. Council wanted some  property for their Joint-Use  office. For us to subdivide, we  had to rezone," Killam said.  According to Killam,  "Shorncliffe will just opt out  and hold" but the Village may  now have to ask for a rezoning  of the proposed one acre from  Block 7 to Public Assembly.  "I have no idea why Public  Assembly zoning was not  attempted first," Killam said  when asked why they had gone  for an entire rezoning of Block  7.  The owner of the Village  Hall building and property had  no comment, saying that he  would have to talk to Clerk-  Treasurer Malcolm Shanks  first.  Planner Dennis Walton's  reasons for recommending the  denial of rezoning stated that  "considerably more research  and thought is warranted prior  to such a substantive policy  change to the Village Plan  policy and it is premature to  consider such actions at this  time.  The report continued,  "...decline the application  while offering the applicant the  opportunity to meet such  objections as were raised by  affected property owners and  document the needs of the  community as he sees it."  The proposed complex on  Block 7 was to include shops,  restaurants and theatres with  potential parking of 400 to  600 cars at an estimated figure  of SIS million for the project.  Channel Nine support  successful  The manager of KCTS  Channel 9 has given credit to  the supportive actions of  viewers on the Sunshine Coasl  which led to the blocking of a  CBC television channel on  Channel 10 which would have  interfered with the Channel 9  transmission signal.  The message, written in the  editorial space on the Channel  9 Program Guide under the  heading Manager's Memo  reads as follows:  I want to thank the large  group of Channel 9 members  and viewers on the Sunshine  Coast of British Columbia for  their support, Recently, the  CRTC held hearings about  CBC's license for transmission  on Channel 10. The frequency  could have produced certain  detrimental effects on cable  reception in some locations on  Urges further study of power line justification  Shaffer report critical  The Shaffer Report was released by the Ministry of  Environment in Victoria last week and it is apparent that  economic consultant Dr. Marvin Shaffer is convinced of the need  for more studies before economic justification of the 300 kv  transmission line from Cheekye to Dunsmuir can be proven.  The case for the line was made by B.C. Hydro in its June 1978  report, Vancouver Island Power Supply 1982-1996 but Shaffer  points out in the introduction to his report that that economic  justification was not carried out in conformity with the ELUC  Secretariat's Guidelines for Beicflt/Cost Analysis.  * Shaffer points out that in forecasting the energy requirements  of Vancouver Island, B.C. Hydro has differed significantly from  the energy requirements forecast by the B.C. Energy Commission.  B.C. Hydro, Shaffer points out, has predicted a load growth in  excess of 5.6% whereas the Energy Commission has forecast less  than 3.5%. Shaffer points out that if further studies were to  corroborate the B.C. Energy Commission's forecast the result  would not be merely a deferral of the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power  line but "probably the adoption of alternatives such as small  hydro projects or gas turbines.   .  The difference in the  projected growth load is  therefore of maximum  importance in the justification  of the power line. B.C. Hydro  forecasts significantly higher  growth rates in both the  residential and the commercial  sectors than does the B.C.  Energy Commission. -  In the industrial or bulk sales  sector B.C. Hydro has revised  its projected load growth  upwards largely because of  increased requests for service  from pulp and paper users. The  energy Commission points out  that the allowable annual cut in  southern coastal and  Vancouver Island forests  cannot increase substantially  and there is therefore only  Council urged to  '.T  seek information  "You are fully entitled and  justified to ask for more  information," Village Planner  Dennis Walton told Sechelt  Council at the regular meeting  on August IS.* A     ....,.:,,^,  Planner Walton presented a,  report concerning applications  for rezoning. /  According to Walton, two of  the three applications "meet  the spirit of the Vicinity Plan  and one doesn't".    ,'  Walton's recommendation  regarding Jadran 'Construction's application- to change  Block 5 from Public Assembly  to Residential IV was that J.  Butorac of Jadran Construction be given the opportunity to  present to CouncU preliminary  sketches including a site layout  plan and building design etc.  and means of access and egress.  The proposal from Butorac  is for a twenty unit apartment  Health Unit moving  to Gibsons  block on Lot A of Block 5.

Jadran Construction Ltd.  requests a zoning change from  Residential I to Residential II  for Parcels G and H of Block B.  Walton recommended a  more precise policy for the  entire block from Teredo to the  boulevard and a review and  possible steps to implement the  Community Plan's 25-foot setback from the boulevard.  Walton closed by stating the  request "premature" in terms  of council policy at this time.  Vancouver Island, and on the  B.C. lower mainland. These  transmissions could have  affected the signals carried on  Cable Channel 9. When  Channel 9 viewers in British  Columbia learned of the  pending decision, they formed  a group of concerned citizens  who intervened with the CRTC  suggesting that nothing be  done to interfere with "their"  public television station,  Channel 9  After a CRTC hearing in  Vancouver, it was decided to  postpone the construction of  this particular channel for the  time being.  I point this out to you  because this was not the first  time that concerned viewers of  Channel 9 have interceded for  the station. Thanks for  your loyalty Best wisheSi  Richard J. Meyer  Alderman Joyce Kolibas  reported to the regular meeting  of the Village of Sechelt  Council on August 15 that the  senior staff at the health unit in  Powell River will be moving to  Gibsons.  As a member of the Coast  Garibaldi Union of Health  serving Squamish to Powell  River, Kolibas met with the  health board and three  representatives from the  Ministry of Health from  Victoria also on the 15th, to  discuss the move of senior staff  to Gibsons,  The change had been voted  on in November of 1978 but  only now is the change "going  ahead according to Victoria in  a one to two year program".  According to Kolibas the  meeting with health officials  was heated. "I thought we were  going to have a little fight on  our hands," she said.  "The majority of staff  servicing the area are on the  road. I wasn't in favor of it  myself.  Kolibas also said that  representatives from Powell  River were "quite incensed"  about the move.  Teredo paving  permission  limited scope for expansion of  pulp and paper operations.  The difference between B.C.  Hydro and the Energy  Commission's forecasts refer to  total energy requirements. Two  university researchers,  Helliwell and Cox, have argued  that increased bulk rates would  cause the industry to produce  much more of its electrical  requirements from its own  waste products.  . On this subject Shaffer says:  "It is generally recognized that  if rates were based on marginal  costs, the costs of providing  additional power to. a  particular region - industrial  rates especially on the Island  would increase sharply.  Average industrial rates are  about 10 mills while the cost of  additional bulk power on the  Island exceeds 30 mills. And if  industrial rates were higher it is  generally agreed that industrial  purchased electricity require  ments would be reduced.  Industrial users would generate  more of their own power . . .  and they would try to locate  where Hydro power was more  accessible and less costly."  Shaffer points out that this is  a question of philosophy.  "Should," he asks, "a serious  attempt be made to curtail the  growth of electricity requirements in accord with the real  costs of electrical expansion or  should there be a continuation  of the growth-oriented pricing  and planning practices that  currently exist?"  "What is important to note,"  the Report concludes, "is that  almost all of the deficiencies in  Hydro's analysis (relative to a  cost/benefit evaluation) bias  the results in favour of the 500  kv line."  As an example of some of the  discrepancies, Shaffer points  out that B.C. Hydro includes  the cost of scrubbing Island  coal in their cost estimates but  not of scrubbing their  mainland Hat Creek coal; that  in calculating the cost of bland  generated electricity Hydro  considers the export value of  the coal whereas with Hat  Creek coal they consider only  the mining cost. Shaffer points  out from the public point of  view the real cost of the coal it  its opportunity or exporting  cost rather than its mining cost.  Further, Shaffer points out  that B.C. Hydro in its estimates  uses an extremely low discount  rate because the government  guarantees its borrowings thus  making Hydro prices  artificially low in comparison  with other forms of energy.  Shaffer concludes that  almost all of the factors not  considered by Hydro but which  would have been considered in  a cost-benefit evaluation would  point away from the  recommended power line.  Wakefield Logger Sports  Warren McKibbin was  granted permission by the  Sechelt Council on Wednesday, August 15, to pave to  subdivision standards one  block in front of Teredo  Square.  "Our main concern is access  for tenants and if it remains  gravel it will deteriorate,"  McKibbin said.  It was agreed by McKibbin  and Council that the initial  paving would have no bearing  on cosi snaring of the whole of  Teredo Street.  "At some future point  Teredo Street will have to be  built up to grade. If they do  nothing else, they'll bury what  we put down," McKibbin said.

The Report points out that the  major justification given, and it is given  again in the government blurb that  accompanied the Report, is the demand of  the forest industry for more power while  there is little scope for growth in terms of  available forest on Vancouver Island.  Purther.concern is expressed about the  fact that the forest industry is getting the  power at about one third the cost of  providing it and this is a concern that has  been expressed at the various public  hearings locally. Shaffer believes it likely  that if the cost of electricity for the forest  industry was closer to the cost of providing  it, more would be done to provide power  by the industry itself.  The present rates are designed for  everlasting growth and the Shaffer Report  asks whether it is not time to move in the  direction of energy conservation. It is  simply unlikely that much will be done in  this direction as long as the industry can  continue to be subsidized by the taxpayers  of this province.  A glance at the balance sheets in  question will reveal to the most casual  scrutiny that the forest industry is in a  much healthier financial condition than  the utility company that supplies it with  cut-rate power, lt may be time for some of  these hidden subsidies of big business to be  called into question. The salaried worker  and the small business man get precious  few breaks from the government and the  gigantic hidden subsidies given the giant  forest industries can hardly be justified.  With these considerations, it must surely  be apparent that the controversy over the  Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line has gone  beyond aesthetic dissatisfaction and is  approaching fundamental philosophic  questions that must be asked.  It is worth noting that the ELUC  Secretariat which commissioned the  Shaffer Report did so on its own initiative.  The provincial government was content to  accept the Hydro findings on blind faith  and still is. It cannot be stressed too much  that thc debt load B.C. Hydro has  accumulated as it pushes ambitious project  after ambitious project providing huge  quantities of power for largely foreign-  owned companies at a fraction of cost to  facilitate the expolitation of the resources  of the province, is truly enormous and it is  a debt load for which the taxpayers of this  province are responsible. The time has  come for a closer scrutiny of B.C. Hydro's  projects and goals than this government  seems ready to undertake.  The Shaffer Report should be required  reading for every thinking resident of the  province.  He's a winner  Really, it would take more than a weekly  newspaper to keep up with Conservative  policy shifts. Last week we ran an editorial  entitled Petrocan Reprieve as the federal  cabinet minister in charge of energy  announced that Petrocan would not be  dismembered after all. Before the paper  was properly on the streets Joe Clark was  back from Africa saying with that petulant  emphasis that we have seen before that,  yes, the Tories would 'privatize' the oil  corporation.  We are willing to lay a wager that Joe  will be talked into something approaching  sense just as he was on the question of the  Israeli embassy. In the meanwhile he  continues to confirm the sad truth that he  is as inconsequential and as stupid as he  looks.  .from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  Not available.

Peterson  The last time I wrote about  John George Diefenbaker it  was on the occasion of his  eighty-third birthday, just last  year. Today it is a sadder duty  to observe the passing of this  fine and pugnacious old  Canadian.  It's not that I ever voted for  Diefenbaker. I doubt that I  would have if he had been  another half century in public  life. Diefenbaker in himself and  in his relations with his party  represented much that was  amiss with the Canadian  political system.  Put quite simply, the country  is governed at the federal level  by two right wing parties which  have no real philosophic  differences. Somewhere  around the turn of the century  the Liberals became the party  of the main stream and the  Conservatives were pushed  into a poslion of perennial  opposition.  In the scramble of the  Conservative party for some  workable identity, lacking a  different philosophy, which  would enable them lo wrest  power from the dominant  Liberals, the Progressive  Conservative Party of Canada  developed the acute case of  schizophrenia which is so  accurately reflected in its name.  Usually in democratic  countries the words 'progressive' and 'conservative' are  used to denote political  oppostition. Progressives are  generally regarded as those in  favour of change and  conservatives as those in  oppostion tc change. The  Progressive Conservative party  of Canada is an unfortunate  blend of populist prairie  radicals and stalwart and  unflinching   Bay  Street,  big  money, status quo types.  It was this unfortunate  composite picture of a party  which was Diefenbaker's  undoing after he swept to  power in the late 1950's with  the largest majority ever  accorded a Canadian Prime  Minister. As a prairie populist  he was distrusted and  neutralized by the power  brokers of Bay Street in the  Conservative party such as  Senator Wallach McCutcheon.  Historically, then, he was an  ineffectual prime minister who  came to power at the head ofa  party which wouldn't follow  him, spent his years at the top  battling with his own forces,  and really left us no great  record of accomplishment  despite his undoubted gifts and  years of public service.  Nonetheless the old warrior  moved the people of this  country as no one had done  before him and his going leaves  an affectionate sense of loss in  all of us, even such as myself  who rarely agreed with him.  Why is that?  It is my conviction that what  makes Diefenbaker significant  in Canadian history is that he  may have been the last  passionate Canadian. Compared to the cool internationalism with which Pearson and  Trudeau have presided over the  continued give away of  Canadian independence and  resources, the old Chief is  refreshing in the fact that he  loved and was proud of his  country. In him there burned  the same fire that lit the lives of  John A. Macdonald and  Wilfred Laurier. All three men  were fired by a vision of the  great potential of this vast and  blessed northern land.  It is also worth noting that  when Diefenbaker went down  to defeat in 1963 it was in  opposition to the arming of the  nuclear warheads on the decoy  missile sites the Americans had  placed in Canada to take some  of the expected nuclear heat off  their own industrial heartland  to the south. It is ironic that it  was Canada's Nobel Peace  Prize winner who got to be  leader of his country by  promising to put nuclear  warheads on his country's soil.  It is the conviction here that  Diefenbaker was right in his  opposition to the American  demands that the warheads be  armed and that Lester Pearson  was wrong. The sixteen years of  Liberal rule that have followed  the defeat of the old Patriot  have seen us progress to the  point where unmarked  American nuclear submarines  may be slipping in and out of  Nanoose Bay on Vancouver  Island within a few miles of  major Canadian population  centres with the compliance of  a Canadian government which  has not brought the matter  before the Canadian people.  So I personally am a John  George Diefenbaker admirer  because it seems to me that  almost alone on the Canadian  political scene did he represent  some real sense of caring for  this country and if, in caring for  his own country, he sometimes  felt it necessary to oppose the  plans and the wishes of the  giant next door he had the guts  to do that too. There are all too  few men in Canadian public life  like John Diefenbaker.  Finally he was one of the few  public figures in canada who  had a vision of this country as a  great northern giant.

We still seem to lack  leadership and statesmanship in  all phases of politics, business,  the sciences and religion.  Our nation wallows in  witlessness. People everywhere  suffer in a kind of stupor. Our  large cities are rotting from  within while on the outside we  are allowing our air, our water  and our land to be ravaged and  polluted beyond repair. It is as  though we were facing a cobra  and paralyzed, not capable of  helping ourselves. Instead we  mumble confusedly about the  high cost of living; about  inflation; about police wrongdoings; aboutinept government  bureaucracy;about lack of jobs.  Yesterday we complained that  our law enforcement agencies  were being too hard on  criminals. We managed to  abolish the death penalty; we  permitted criminals to bargain  for rights in prison! Weforgotall  about those who had been  terrorized and victimized by  these same criminals! Today we  clamor for a return of the  "noose"; today we demand  satisfaction. Tomorrow we will  listen to the demagogues and  change our mindsagain!  Exaggerations you say?  Perhaps. But who can deny that  in spite of putting men on the  moon, in spite of all the great  achievements of science, there is  a sickness in our western society.  Our political, financial and  social establishmentsare ridden  with a cancer which seems to  have no ready solution in  socialism,communism,fascism  or even in religion. Arid this  cancer is being worsened by an  appalling lack of responsible  leadership.  Our intellect is being blinded  today by the pretty pictures  painted by unscrupulous  demagogues. They tell us what  great strides science is making  towards building the perfect  sgciety. Then we are told this  progress is beingjeopardized by  overpopulation: too many  mouths to feed with our limited  resources. Others tell us we do  have the capabilities to feed the  world. Who do we believe?  Corporate 'Giants' claim the  right to do what they will to  produce the goods necessary for  our economic well-being; the  environmentalists claim that  this freedom will eventually  destroy the planet. Who do we  believe? Energy experts say that  nuclear power is not only safe,  but isnecessary foroursurvival;  other experts say there is no way  to produce nuclear energy  safely. Who do we believe? We  a nation of people slowly being  blinded because we have  abrogated our responsibilities  to politicians, scientists and  bankers. Our leaders are one  step ahead of us, however, they  at least have kept oneeye open I  What has happened to  leadership? Do we really need  the bold, daring spirit of the  pioneers that built this country?  These rugged individualists  werea hardandaggressivebreed  of men, thinking mainly of  themselves and the profits they  sought. In many ways they were  the forerunners of the  multinationals we know today.  They were selfish and they were  ruthless. But they were  successful; and because they  were successful, we think that  their way is the right way. We do  not need this kind of men today:  entrepreneurs who sacrificed  integrity and responsibility as  they exploited their fellowmen  for profit. They took but they  rarely gave without exacting a  price for their beneficence.  Today we need a different kind  of entrepreneur and we need a  brand new meaning to the work  "leadership".  We need responsible  leadership!  It is strange that when we  speak of responsibility, many  people cringe at the word; some  actually despise it. They hide  from it.preferringinsteadtotoss  their responsibilities to  governments, social agencies  and religious institutions. If we  are to save our Judeo-Christian  heritage, the foundation of our  western civilization,itmustbein  the nature of those who control  our resources, our government  and the wheels of our industry;  but....thepeopleMUSTholdthe  reins!  For too long have we  delegated our social and  financial responsibilities to  politicians andbureauc rats. For  too long have these faceless  powers held sway over our  personal lives and social  commitments. For too long  have we all turned a blind eye to  the obligations we owe to our  family, our friends and our  neighbours. In attempting to  establish and guarantee  "rights" for minoriUes, we have  forgotten that the majority have  rights too! We have been led to  believe that democracy is  nothing more than electingafew  representatives to act on our  behalf while we sit back and let  things happen. Democracy  means total immersion in the  day to day operation of our  society. It means that the best  interests of the citizenry must  come before the interests of  multinational corporations.  Ourelectedrepresentativeshave  consistently sided with the  power brokers whenever a  conflict of interest appeared in  dealing with public concern.  The key word is responsibility. Every citizen must be  made aware of what this means:  For the politician, complete  honesty in his dealings with the  electorate. For the businessman, industrialist and  entrepreneur it means paying  . fair wages and salaries to those  producing the wealth. For the  financier it means less  manipulation of our financial  resources. For the worker it  means giving an honest day's  work, every day. For Trade  Union leaders it means  cooperation with management,  not confrontation. And forallof  us it means acting 'justly' with  our neighbours,'justly'withour  employer, 'justly' with our  government, and above all,  'justly' with our own family  members.  We must bear in mind thatour  'rights' are totally dependent  upontheresponsibleattitudesof  those around us. Our western  society will continue to existand  prosper only to the extent that  each citizen realizes he is  responsible for his actions to  every other citizen. Unless we  can achieve this interdependence, this appreciation of the  rights of others, this spirit of  responsibility, we will not  survive for long as a civilized  society. We have allowed  minorities to manipulate our  legislators and thereby dictate  the terms of much of our  economic and social life style.  Governmental policies and  bureaucratic decisions often  reflect the thinking and the  attitudes of the citizens: the  noble ideals of an appathetic  majority being buried under the  selfish ideologies of a vocal,  militant minority.  Because weareblindtowhatis  going onaround us, wearebeing  led by one-eyed men who think  theyare smarter than weare.ltis  now time to remove the  blindfold of irresponsibility  from our eyes and see the havoc  being wrought in our society by  these one-eyed, self-crowned  'kings'. One would almost  believe that Martin Luther King  Jr. had this in mind when he said  to a civil rights group: "Unless  we agree to live together as  brothers, we will surely all die  together as fools!"  Do we open oureyesnowand  begin to make the decisions  affecting OUR future? Or do we  continue to let "one-eyed"  irresponsible men in their ivory  towers lead us down the path to  instantannihilation?

Halfmoon Bay firemen  earn high praise  Coast News gets around  Editor:  The sound of the fire trucks'  siren was music in our ears  when the Halfmoon Bay fire  brigade arrived at the Bolivar  woodshed fire on Redrooffs  Road August 4.  We appreciated the prompt  arrival (10 minutes) of the  brigade, a miracle, considering  the fact that the volunteer  firemen must all be notified  before rushing to the firehall.  We are in complete support  of the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department and we congratu  late the excellent work of the  team and too, their cheerfulness and utmost consideration  and understanding.  The Bolivar family and Thea  Leuchte would like to thank the  acting fire chief and his men for  the great service they give and  wish.the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department all the success in  the future!  Yours sincerely,  Richard Bolivar  and Family,  Thea Leuchte  Editor:  Well your newspaper, the  Coast News, certainly gets  around too!  Clarence Cook, who is  fishing in this area, gave me  your paper which his mother  on the North Road, (Ellen  Cook) sends to him. 1 have  known the Cooks since the  early thirties, having gone to  school with Clarence. Did you  know we also went to school  with " Whistlin'" Bernie Smiith  along with his brother. They  lived on the North Road (the  old D'Aoust place) for awhile  in the thirties.

The camp to which  Frankie's ticket has sentenced  me is called Ox River Timber. It  appears to employ about  twenty-five men and lies  somewhere in the general  vicinity of Rock Bay, one of the  oldest logging areas on the  Coast. My impressions of it  thus far have not been too  encouraging but I suppose it  isn't the worst operation I've  hit and the food seems up to  par.  In addition to my usual camp  suitcaseful of random clothing  items and scioce fiction  magazines, I have brought  along a small portable record  player (my first, acquired the  previous year, plus a few of the  earliest 78 L.P's). I have never  seen another phonograph in a  logging-camp bunkhouse  before and hope it won't get me  branded as too much of a  weirdo by some of the change-  shy old pros around this place.  Despite its relatively recent  entrance into my life, the player  already has a bit of a history.  One such incident involves  Frankie and almost unbidden,  my thoughts slide back to it.  It had happened before  Frank tied up with Lorraine.  We had hit town together from  a badnews gyppo possessed ofa  common thirst, started the  rounds of the skidroad pubs  and began knocking back beer  as though there was no  tomorrow. Eventually, we ran  into a couple of girls that  Frankie knew but we were both  considerably under-the-  weather by this point and they  must have ditched us for  likelier game. Frank and I  ended up in some grubby  Chinese cafe where we both  contrived to pass-out  simultaneously. After a futile  effort to wake us up, the owner  must have phoned the police.  The next thing I knew, we were  being escorted unceremoniously towards the black mari.i.  Soon, we were sitting in a  drunk-tank cell, cursing our ill-  luck.  Our disgruntlement was  compounded by the fact that it  was Saturday night. There was  no court on Sunday and, unless  a guy could raise thc twenty  dollar bail, it meant staying in  the tank until Monday  morning. I was certain that  they had taken at least this  amount from me at the  booking desk and Frankie  figured he could spring himself  too. We conred an obliging  screw into checking for us. I  was home-free with twenty-  three but Frank was shy by  sixteen bucks. "Jesus! I  must've lost a double-sawbuck  somewhere." he groaned.  "Can't you phone your  brother or something?"  "Carl's over on the goddamn  Island and I can't phone my  parents. I've been in so many  jackpots over booze the last  couple of years, they'll go  through the bloody roofi"  The   night   dragged   by  E.E. mickey Coe  Res.   271-0486  Village motors Ltd.  ri AMC / Jeep / Renault^  2880 Arbutus SI al 12th A��e', Vancouver.

Eight  o'clock, after soggy toast and  luke warm dishwater coffee,  the J.P. finally showed up.  Only two other guys and  myself have the price. Poor  Frank had to stay put. I've  promised to try and raise the  money to get him out but it's  Sunday and there is nowhere I  can cash a cheque. I wandered  the battened-down streets  disconsolately and ran into a  junkie-logger both Frank and I  knew. "There's a pusher I can  turn you onto," he said. "He'll  probably front you the money  but he'll want some kind of  collateral."  What the hell did I have?  Then I thought of my record-  player, checked with the rest of  our gear at a nearby hotel. I  dearly loved that machine and  hated to put it in jeopardy. But  I had promised Frankie, so  what the hell? I picked up the  phonograph and we went to the  dope-dealer's house. He took  the player in hock for twenty  and I swore I'd get it back to  him the minute the banks  opened Monday. I bailed  Frank out and we took a  streetcar out to his folks' place.  They greeted us charitably,  pleased to see us sober and  unaware of our misadventures.  Monday morning we headed  back downtown, drew some  cash and hightailed it to the  pusher's place. He was just in  the process of moving out but  miraculously he still had the  machine. "Good thing you  showed up when you did," he  said handing it to me. "The  goddamn narcs are onto me  and I have to disappear."  I lie on my bunk in Ox River  Logging camp, looking at that  selfsame record-player. Funny  how it has survived while poor  Frankie is gone beyond jails,  bail and all his sad hopes for  some happier life. The guy was  only twenty-four. It all seems  obscurely unfair.  The bunkhouse they have  assigned me to seems half-  empty (for which I am  thankful). Most of the roughest  looking crew-members  (including the one-eyed man)  seem to be quartered elsewhere.  The place is an eight-man unit,  four beds to a side with a hall  and a stove in the centre.  Madoff, the slow-motion  chokerman, Perce and a second  loader from the trackside are in  the other half. My side is vacant  except for a dark-haired guy  around my own age called Vic  Standish. "Guess I'll be  chasing on the cold-decker  when they get her going," he  says.  I'm glad to hear that. He  seems like a pretty good sort.  Turns out he likes musio too  which is a relief. I throw on a  Kay Starr record and we talk of  Vancouver. I tell him about  Frankie. "Jesus!" he responds  surprisingly "we set beads  together at Bear Bay a couple  of years ago. What a rough  break!" I am certain I've struck  a friend. It's a good feeling, like  striking gold.  Next day the fog has lifted  and I can see the nature of the  country we are confronted  with. It is rough and  hummocky terrain in the  shadow of a towering and  nearly treeless mountain. The  hole we are swinging out of is  about as steep and treacherous  as I sensed it must be, a  boulder-strewn, splintery  pitch, fit only for mountain  goats and sidehill gougers. But  at least now we are not working  blind. Despite the ineptitude of  Madoff, Perce and I persevere  and we swing the final logs out  by four o'clock. Carmody  seems satisfied. "Good  enough," he says. "We'll get  that cold-decker mobile  tomorrow." Things don't seem  to be going too badly. The cold-  deck setting can't possibly be  any worse than this.  To be continued.

This  marked the beginning of the  city of Vancouver circulating  collection, the first such  programme in Canada. This  project has attracted  considerable attention and was  lauded by art critics, gallery  curators and even Time  magazine which cited the  Artists' Gallery as "the most  imaginative project to be  funded this way."  After eight years the city of  Vancouver  now   owns  over  nationally recognized.

See our  Bargain Shelf  for good buys  NOP Bookstore Coast News, August 21,1979  ^Bookman's Corp^r  IWore poetry from Atwood  by John Moore  . Two-Headed Poems  (Oxford University Press,  1978. $3.95) is Margaret  Atwood's first collection of  poems to be published in  four years. As you might  expect from the title, the  dominant themes and  images of the poems focus  .on the dualities of life; sex,  age and youth, violence and  peace, creation and  (destruction. She seems to  have taken the ancient  Roman God Janus, the God  of "good-beginnings" as her  symbol. Statues of Janus  had two faces, one young  and the other old, symbolising completeness, the  Alpha and Omega, the  beginning and end in one. In  A Piper Big, Atwood  creates a whimsical Janus  put of the traditional paper-  bag Halloween mask md  .gets to the root of the  fascination with masks that  characterizes most human  -cultures.  ' "Paper head, I prefer you  v because of your emptiness;  v from within you any  word could still be said.  (With you I could have  - more than one skin,  i a blank interior, a repertoire  . of untold stories,  I a fresh beginning."  The mask liberates us from  'the tyranny of our circumstantial selves; allows us to  be someone else, anyone  else or everyone. In a fine  series of tightly knit little  poems called FivePoemsfor  Dolls our toys, created for  play, reveal themselves as  our truest self-created alter-  egos: "these are the lost  children/those who have  'died or thickened/to full  growth and gone away./The  dolls are their souls or cast  Safins/which line the shelves  of our bedrooms/and  museums, disguised as  outmoded tpys". The truth  behind the game is also the  Jubject of The Puppet ofThe  , i*olf, which is itself a playful  version of an earlier poem,  the Right Hand Fights the  Left, about the endless  struggle between the forces  of creation and destruction.  Quite a number of the poems  which appear in the first half of  the book have companion  pieces in the second and the  book is divided more or less  in half by the eleven part  series Two-Headed Poems.  Taking Siamese twins,  "joined at the head", astheir  symbol, these poems probe  pur individual and national  schizophrenia. In her  epigrammatic three-line  preface, Atwood says, "The  heads speak sometimes  singly, sometimes together,  sometimes alternately within  a poem. Like all Siamese  twins, they dream of  separation". Personally, I  only hear one voice and that  one a bit monotonous and  predictable.   The   series  contains some fine lines and  some acute observations,  ("How can you use two  languages and mean what  you say in both?"), but really  fine poetry always has the  quality of revelation no  matter how shopworn the'  subject, and much of Two-  Headed Poems seems to  lack it. The poems are full of  rhetorical questions which  occasionally spoil the effect  of good lines, as in Poem VI  which ends "As for the sun,  there are as many suns as  there are words for sun;"  followed by what strikes'me  as a poinUess and coy little'  trailer, "false or true?".  Equally pointless is the  question "What is a traitor?"  which ends poem IX in  which she has spent some  thirty-odd lines defining  treason. The tone of the  whole series is that of the  national identity-crisis of the  sixties. That crisis has  changed and intensified  substantially and I find it odd  that Atwood should adopt a  "voice" she has outgrown to  comment on it. The series of  Four Small Elegies on the  subject of the reprisals  which followed the failure of  the uprising in Lower  Canada in 1838 are brilliant  by contrast. Her terse  incisive lines transform the  small print of history, the  casual violence perpetrated  by one goup of victims upon  another, into a universal  human document. These  poems, and the prose-poem  Marrying the Hangman tell  me more about being a  human being, and a  Canadian than anything in  Two-Headed Poems. So  much for the cheap shots.  At the risk of being  chauvinistic, I'd say that  motherhood has done  wonderful things for  Magaret Atwood. Her  relationship   with   her  daughter seems to have  deepened her insight and  produced a matured, nonpartisan vision of the  struggle and change of  existence. Rough images of  opposition and violence  abound, but she seems to  have aquired a fine sense of  the balancein things. Poems  like Today and the extended  meditations of A Red Shirt  and Solstice Poem deal with  the essential questions  raised by the creation of  another human being, and  do so with relentless  honesty:  "How can I teach her  some way of being human  that won't destroy her?  i would like to say. Dance  and be happy. Instead I will  say  in my crone's voice, Be  ruthless when you have to, tell  thetruthwhen you can,  when you can see it.  Iron talismans, and ugly, but  more loyal than minors."  A sense of continuity, of a  human heritage passing  from one generation to  another, also emerges  powerfully from Five Poems  for Grandmothers and Two  Miles Away. The thirteen  poems in the Daybrooks  series are a tour-de-force in  which she achieves, with  remarkable consistency, a  goal outlined in some of the  best lines in Two-Headed  Poems:  "We wanted to describe  the snow,  the snow here, at the corner  of the house and orchard  in a language so precise  and secret it was not even  a code, it was snow,  there could be no  translation."  I can't say it any better  than that. All for now.  /IB  mW^<       ...   v  :t3��_^  __wj__h-fsfai  I           _W mm\^m\\ _-  Ji'MBm  *1**��fl|  SgPp  v'- ��� via  rfSm��mmm\  L__fc.. m      ^r  ^"'t\***^_mmi  ___^_m  9' ���    : i  k_i>   "^^"iS  y     mm  i V  J: <~h  Hk  v.  i   '.'

Cole of Roberts Creek parts the tig leaf to remove fresh figs grown on the  Sunshine Coast. i  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  A visit to the Cole's  waterfront garden along Beach  Avenue in Roberts Creek is a  bit like a jaunt to another  country and climate. The  gardens meander around huge  rock outcroppings following  the soil and cluster up to a huge  Fig tree currently bearing its  second crop of figs this  summer.  Following Kay Cole along  the paths under great clumps of  green and muscatel grapes, I  realized that their garden is  truly self-sustaining. It really  has everything. The aesthetic  and the practical mingle  magnificently. Cauliflower and  zucchini mix it up with  Marigolds (keeps bugs away).  Nasturtium and California  Poppies compete with  Tomatoes, Dill and lovely  dripping blue Borage (attracts  bees) and there is always plenty  of plant food as Colin mulches  kelp and seaweed for fertilizer.  From the beach to the garden  to the tummy!  Great drifts of yellow Tansy  (discouraging to ants) both  outside and in (household ants  don't like it either)... peaches  and fat plums both green ahd  purple, Fuchsias, magenta and  pink, spilling out of grapes...  fragrant Japanese Holy tree...  small nameless purple flowers  from Greece happily nodding  side by side with the humbler  pink candy-tuft and little  sparkling goodies peeking  around every board and  sneaking through every cranny.  Kay and Colin Cole don't  have weeds they just seem to be  bothered by more flowers  which they fondly allow to  grow. In this garden nothing is  forced into military rows and  we see garlic, carrots, cabbage,  corn, horse-radish, beets,  spinach, beans and more  grapes all interlaced with  hundreds of flowers and spices,  smoke trees and holly  impossible to catalogue.  Kay is an herbalist and she is  also a very fine painter and her  beach-side home contains more  than forty of her original  paintings many of which have  been exhibited by the  prestigious West Cancouver  Sketch Club in Vancouver.

Sechelt council met August  IS to discuss recent committee  reports and a request by Sechelt  Ratepayers for another public'  hearing on the Sechelt Vicinity  Plan.  Final housekeeping changes  have been made to the  Community Plan including  addition of paragraphs on  hazardous conditions and  agricultural land within the  village so-called "protective  clauses."  "It is the wishes of the  directors of our organization  that the Sechelt Community  Plan be again taken to a public  hearing due to the substantial  changes made to the plan since  the last public hearing," read a  letter to Council by the Sechelt  Ratepayers Association.  "I don't feel it is necessary  but I am willing to have a  meeting with the committee if  they want to," said Alderman  Joyce Kolibas.  "I think the people have a  misunderstanding. They think  the plan is a law. It's a  proposal...a guideline," Mayor  Nelson said.  The Community Plan was  taken to public hearing almost  one year ago and then sent to  Victoria for acceptance,  "technically separating you  from its adoption at this  point," commented Village  Planner Dennis Walton.  Walton told Council they  were "entitled to take it back to  Victoria and seek its formal  acceptance. You at least will  then have a policy for the  community and any prospective developer. That is your  responsibility."  "This is more or less what  they told us when an in camera  meeting was held in late July  when we met to discuss general  matters...there were indications that the changes.were  large enough to be more than  housekeeping changes. They  maintained they were not,"  Vice-President of the  Ratepayer's Ian Hunter said  when asked about the. public  hearing request.  Wednesday, August 22 has  been set for Alderman Kolibas  to meet with the executive of  the Ratepayer's for an  information meeting.

Serving the Coast since 19S7.  Chartju Maittrchargt  This week I received an  attractive little booklet abou'.  the Inukshuk Project from the  project director, David  Simialak.  When the Government made  known its plans to launch the  Anik B Satellite the Inuit  Tapisirisat saw an opportunity  to use the satellite for an  experimental project. The  Department of Communications will lease the Satellite  from Telesat Canada for two  years to allow various groups  and organizations across the  country to experiment with  communications projects.  The Tapisirisat project,  named lnikshuk was approved  a year ago and beginning next  September will have the use of  the Anik B Satellite for six  months.  Since the first Anik launched  in 1972 brought television into  many Inuit homes across the  Arctic the Inuit people have  become increasingly concerned  about its effect, particularly on  their children.  Although   there  are seven  /s7\ SUNSHINE  XQ KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons,  different languages spoken  among the Inuit and many  dialects the CBC's Northern  Service makes little or no  provision for local or regional  input, (only thirty minutes per  week is broadcast in  lnuktitut) to balance the  overwhelming content of  programmes designed with the  southern Canadian audience in  mind. Appeals to the CBC and  the Government fell on deaf  ears���the CBC had the grace to  admit shame for what it was  doing to the Inuit people but  always claimed it couldn't  afford to provide facilities for  northern people to increase  their own programming.  The booklet The Inukshuk  Project tells simply and  movingly how the Inuit feel and  of their plans to use technology  "both to preserve our  languages and culture and  determine our direction in a  changing society".  They write:  "Our dream is an Inuit  communications system  stretching all across the North  which will enhance the strength  and dignity of our people.  "We want to have an Inuit  broadcasting system which will  allow us to produce our own  dramas, documentaries,  entertainment and news  programs.  "The Inuit message must be  seen and heard in a way which  Freshasa DAISY!

Our dream means we must  grab hold of thc technology in  the North and learn how we can  expand and improve the  present broadcasting network.  We want to see the day when  many of the television  programs shown in Inuit  communities will be produced  by northern Inuit centres.  "For years we have been  concerned about the social,  cultural and linguistic impact  of television programming in  the North. Television has been  provided to Inuit communities  over the last ten years at a time  when we faced immense  cultural changes. We are being  exposed to a massive assault on  our language and culture. The  subject matter has nothing to  do with Inuit life or interests  and we are worried it is making  our children forget their  language and past.  "Inukshuk is an experimental communications  program which gives us the  opportunity to provide new  production facilities, equipment and training for Inuit  staff. We will produce Inuit  language programming and  make use of Inuit personnel  who are anxious to use their  skills in film and television  production. We wanttoseeour  own actors and actresses  playing dramatic roles on film  and television. We want to have  our own writers, musicians,  producers and technicians  behind the camera.  "We can imagine our  communities being linked  across thousands of miles with  a broadcast system that would  deliver instant news and  information using satellite  communication.  "We can imagine our  children learning the history  and culture of our people and  land through material prepared  by Inuit educators and fed to  schools by satellite communication."  Does it sound hopelessly  idealistic or too little, too late?  I'm not sure, but the Inuit area  Does the Sunshine Coast really need this on its highways?  Kitchen Corner  Budgetting suggestions  by Mama Lee  You can beat the battle of the  food budget and still feed your  family well. It takes planning  and ingenuity. One of the most  common topics of conversation  (among home-makers) is the  cost of food and the question  asked, over and over, "what  can be done about it?"  Starting here and on the  following weekly food pages,  we'll try offering some  suggestions to beat that  "demon budget". For starters!  Study the weekly adds in the  local "specials". Work with a  shopping list that you've made  from your weekly menus, but  keep it flexible���with an eye to  that week's specials.  proud and tenacious people  who have lived successfully  without the benefits of  technology in a most  inhospitable land and they're  determined to hang onto their  cultural identity.  The least we southern  Canadians can do is to see they  get all the support and  encouragement they need.  More from the Inukshuk  report next week.  Get to know your food store  and its people. You'll be a  better shopper if you're aware  of their regular prices and the  best hours and days to shop.  Try some magic with  seasoning mixes:  1. Beat an 8 oz. package of  cream cheese until fluffy;  stir in one can thawed  frozen condensed cream  of shrimp soup with a few  tablespoons of milk and  lemon juice to taste. Serve  as a dip.  2. Prepare Italian salad-  dressing mix, following  label directions; brush  over chicken before  broiling.  3. Heat one can condensed  cream of chicken soup  with one-fourth cup  mayonnaise on salad  dressing and add one  tablespoon lemon juice  until bubbly; spoon over  freshly cooked broccoli  or asparagus.  4. Vary the flavor of Swiss  steak by adding dry  spaghetti sauce mix,  canned spaghetti sauce,  or hamburger seasoning  mix to the liquid called  for in your favorite  recipe. Or try chili  seasoning mix with pot  roast.  Live   dangerously���experi** j  ment a bit!

Peterson  She was awake when the first  chord sounded the next  morning. There was a dressing  gown at the foot of the bed,  several sizes too large for her.  I The pattern of footsteps had  ta^ld her much of how this other  portion of the house would be.  One long L-shaped room took  up most of the remainder of the  bjiilding. The top of the L held  the kitchen, the foot looked  down on the useless trail, and  the toe overlooked the lake. A  cot stood in the corner. The  stone fireplace, with bookcases  on either side, took up much of  the wall on the long side. Near  it stood the piano.  The host looked up as she  entered.  "I didn't know how long you  wished to sleep. Breakfast can  be ready any time."  "I'd like to help with it."  "I suppose we should  become known to each other by  something besides the personal  pronoun. My name is John  Madry. The address is  'Wilderness Enow'."  "\ am Selma Perry, lately of  the outside world."  \ "Almost 'late'. However,  you do not seem to have been  destroyed by the venture."  L"Not entirely. Where are we,  by the way?"  /'How far did you wander off  the beaten path?"  "About���to here, I presume.  How far is that?"  ./'Lady, you have strayed to  trie outskirts of the Beyond.  Does it matter where one is  physically within a mile or two  ojt the earth's surface?"  ^"Alright then. If you are  typwhere in particular, what do  you do there���here?"  '"I play the part of the male  ajnimal. I observe the functions  of the animal that is alone. I  simply live."  "But, alone like this? Don't  you ever yearn for the company  of other human beings?"  "It is wise for the alone to  swell but sparingly on the  subject of loneliness."  The words were intoned in  such a manner that Selma knew  they had been considered many  times before.  "Besides, there is only so  much of life. It does not double  \i the companionship of two,  or, treble in the company of  tiree. The sublimation that  must be formed may be unique  t ) the phenomenon of  li neliness, but sublimations of  a sort must be evolved in every  s tuation."  The speaker rose and began  te clear the table. Thc matter,  so far as he was concerned, was  closed.  Selma gave the livingroom  portion of the L a casual  inspection after the dishes had  been washed. The books on the  huge shelves looked somehow  as though they had been reqd.  They, and the piano, even while  idle and quiet, seemed to be  performing some function in  the long room, just as were the  crackling flames of the  fireplace. They were not the  den ofa squire, which is to him  a diversion, not the attributes  of a scholar, which are his  means. Rather they, with the  addition of the appropriate  personality, were the whole and  total of a life.  The appropriate personality  stalked about the room,  feigning interest in chattels that  could obviously have been of  no interest to him; wishing, by  his gestures, neither to be  watched not to be observed  watching his guest. Several  times he eyed the piano, and  moved as if to sit at it and play.  But each time he passed the seat  and became absurdly  engrossed in something else.  "I could ask him to play,"  thought Selma, "but it would  not do. It would be only part of  him playing, with the absent  portion resenting the foreign  presence that inhibits his  expression. It is better that he  play through a desire of his own  than because of a request from  me."  "How soon do you think I  can leave?" she asked.  His voice answered, "Not  until most of the snow is gone,"  but his eyes asked, "Why?"  She answered his eyes, "I  think it better that I go, don't  you?" Without waiting for a  reply, she continued, "There is  no room here for anyone but  you. You do not actually  oppose intrusion, but you  passively resist it. You cannot  comprehend; you cannot  accommodate yourself to the  situation that exists when  another being enters your  world. So you build about  yourself a wall without  windows, so' that no one can  look in on you who do not care  to look out."  Madry sat down; stood up  again. His fingers plucked a  book from the shelf by which  he stood, and toyed with it as he  spoke: "You make statements  that are not easily dealt with.  Remember, there is no choice  in the degree of adaptation to  living alone. It affects no one  but the individual undergoing  the experience. It is a simple but  complete operation not  everyone   can   endure.   It  requires certain predilections  on the part of those who decide  to subject themselves to it.  They must have always been  alone in thought. It is not that  they exile themselves from or  ignore other human beings. It is  not possible to exile oneself  from or to ignore something  that does not mentally exist.  They are as much alone in  society as in the wilderness, but  less understood. They do not  wish to offend by their  abstraction; they wish simply  to be left alone."  Each phrase had sent  Selma's thoughts winging in  search of something to say in  answer. They returned in  disordered array, with  incomplete results.  "Your answer explains more  than I have had time to  assimilate as yet. But there  seems to be a great deal missing  still. You say that you are of the  lonely race by birth, and yet  you have cultivated the trait far  beyond the natural gift. You  say that your life is simple, and  yet you are more complex than  the world that you have  shunned. You contend that you  are complete, and yet you are a  puzzle of loose ends, and you  yourself don't know which  strings are joined and which are  not."  The other replaced his book  on the shelf. He tried with his  hands to grasp and shape his  works into the meaning he  wished them to convey.  "I am the difference of the '  few being forever judged by the  sameness of the many.  Humanity has not yet perfected  language to explain all forms of  behavior or to express all  shades of thought. How am I to  be solved by incomplete  equations? Now I must go for a  few hours. I should be back by  dark."  To be continued  Coast News, August 21,1979  7.

Post mistress retires  That daily trip to the post office may take some getting used to  for residents of Halfmoon Bay after August 26.  For twenty-eight years, the Rutherfords, first A.J. as  postmaster from 19S1 to 1968 and then Grace, since his retirement  in 1968, have handed residents their mail from their home at the  end of Mintie Road.  "I've done a lot of my visiting over this post office wicket,"  Grace recalled after postmistressing for eleven years.  The Rutherfords first came   said remembering when mail  to the Sunshine Coast in 1944  when they lived at Welcome  Beach until 1951 when her  husband took over the  Halfmoon Bay post office.  At that time the route went  as far as Oyster Bay, before  Madeira Park or Garden Bay  had post offices. There have  been a few changes since the  mail was delivered by ferry,  then onto a bus and up to  Halfmoon Bay just three times  a week.  Of the almost 400 householders in Halfmoon Bay,  some 330 of them are rural  routes, "depending on the  season".  At 10:30 a.m., six days a  week, letterbags are delivered,  sometimes three parcel bags  and other days half a dozen.  "They're not nearly so heavy  now as they used to be," Grace  order packages would be "piled  a mile high" into their house.  "Now the people go into  Sechelt to shop. The roads are  much better and money  orders���that we used to have  piles of���we rarely do. Now it's  credit cards. People have more  money now."  Having the post office in the  house meant that Grace could  manage to get things done  around the house in between  the coming and going of  people.  On Saturday night a dinner  and dance was held in honour  of Grace's years of service in  the community. Her daughter  Louise, from Vancouver, came  home for the weekend for the  occasion, as well as helping  with the mail, just as she did  while still living at home.  Grace's plans for retirement  include a trip to Ontario and  then back home, "I've got a  garden to tend to".  "There are a lot of jobs I've  kept putting off but 1 guess  they're never done."  One of those jobs will be the  expansion of her home into  that area now taken up with  mailbox slots and letter bags.  As a reminder to residents of  Halfmoon Bay, your mail can  be picked up as of Monday,  August 27, at the B & K Store  from the new postmistress  Marie Mahar.

The Mullens on Pratt Rd.  had their house treated for  carpenter ants recently. Mrs.  Mullens was afraid that the  spraying might be detrimental  to a family of swallows nesting  by the house, but after  assurances that they would be  in no-tianger she had the work  done.  A short time later the three  young tried to leave the nest,  unsuccessfully.  Their attempts at flight were  a miserable failure. The first  one was found on the ground  with its wings outstretched. It  was returned to the nest several  times, with the.same results.  Eventually with the help of  their dog Lady (who has a  propensity for bringing home  injured birds for care), they  trached down two of the young  ���dead.  The adult swallows were  understandably a bit upset and  became quite excited by the  whole thing.  The climax began about ten  days later. Several, swallows  began gathering on the antenna  beside the house. Within a few  days between 30 and 40 of them  were jockeying for position on  the aerial. Once they were all  present the whole mob began  dive bombing the house. There  you go, Alfred, an idea for  another movie. Perhaps you  could entitle' it, "One swallow  doesn't take a bummer."  Bird Club  I ran into Wayne Diakow in  Madeira Park last week. He  passed me on the newsletter  from the Federation of B.C.  Naturalists. (The Marsh  Society is now affiliated with  it). It's an interesting  newsletter. In it is a picture ofa  Humbolt Penguin taken off  Mitlenatch Island, if it will  reproduce I'll include it here.  to have caught a 24-pounder  off the Davis Bay Wharf, but at  the last moment this was out  shone.

He's  going to do a write-up on it  when he gets back.  I guess with fall coming on  again, interest will reawaken  for holding meetings, so I'll  keep you posted.

Terry decided to have a bit of  fun and try to catch it. He had it  in his hands about four times.  Each time it escaped, but didn't  leave.

Come cry with me  ���&  by Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann,  I find this problem a bit hard  to define. I feel sad or  disappointed and my husband  doesn't understand that I don't  want to be with him. I want to  be alone until a better  emotional balance is reached.  If I am sad or we quarrel, I cry  and feel quite empty and  remote. It seems that of all the  ridiculous times to want to  make love, invariably, he feels  this is it. He thinks it will cheer  me up. Not being a yo-yo I  can't switch from one mood to  the other. So thus the problem  is compounded. How do I  handle this?  Discouraged.  Dear Discouraged,  I think a communication block  occurs. Just as you cannot  change from one emotion to the  other, he may be unable to  Imagine bow you feel, hence he  tries to impose his mood,  thinking that he can cheer you  up. Just talk about it until you  reach a mutual understanding.  When he is down, propose a love-  in and see if he can switch  moods. One has to put oneself in  the other's shoes to really get an  understanding of feelings.  Dear Ann,  What do you think of people  this day and age. Supposedly  cold, indifferent and not  interested in the well being of  others. Well I have a story.  People from Denver visisting  for the first time had  reservations at Horseshoe Bay  Motel. They got there at night  to find the motel didn't hold the  reservations for them. On the  last Ferry, thinking to call their  prospective hosts on this side,  they met a very nice couple  from Czechoslovakia who said  there was no need to call and  awaken anyone, but to come  home with them. Such a kind  deed for strangers should  receive a bouquet and many  thanks.  Pleased.  Dear Pleased,  Such kindness isn't beard of so  often, but always warms the  heart when we hear of these kind  unselfish people. It's good to  know they still exist. Pleased is a  good word for it!  Dear Ann,  I have a beef. I like to have  dinner in front of the T.V. as  I'm alone and it seems like  company, but I settle down  with a nice plate of food and  they advertise sanitary pads,  piles remedies and horror  Alms. It's sure a come-down  and hard on the digestion. Are  others as put off as I?  Sick  Dear Sick,  Yes, we ill agree, I'm sure.  It's Just who ever programs It  puts the shows on tape then  goes home and watches another station or listens to the  stereo. Then are remote-  control buttons yon can use to  cut out commercials (the  sound, thst Is). You could  stare at your plate for three  minutes. I sympathize.  Dear Ann,  Hydro and their Cheekye  line keep me awake nights.  When it's a people's company, then it seems people  trying to safe-guard their environment should have some  thing to say. Why is this Bonner tolerated? 1 feel so helpless when a battering ram like  Hydro takes a destructive  stand.  Worried  Dear Worried,  It's bad enough to think of  the destructive side-effects  and blight on the beauty of our  coast, but that feeling of helplessness Is very debilitating.  It shortens the life of rats to  feel helpless; they Just die.  Let's hope It doesn't have that  effect on our fighting force of  neighbours. Elect a new  government! Campaign!  Dear Ann,  I'm a man in my 20's. I  want to wear the current short  Coast News, August  hair cut. The hitch is my ears  stick out, I look goofy. Can I  do anything about my ears? I  always feel like dumbo, with  all this wind resistance.  Bring on the Gowns.  Dear Clown,  Well there ara several  things. First, leave the hair  over your ears, and cut It  short elsewhere. A good hair  stylist could probably cover  your ears and balance the look  otherwise. A plastic surgeon  can pin back ears. If It bothers  yon that much go for H.  The cost can't be that much.  Whatever makes us feel good  about ourselves Is always  worth It.  Happy Landings.  21, 1979 9.

"That's a fact of life in  the boating world!" say  members of the Sunshine Coast  Power Squadron.  An increasing need for  public education in the  handling of boats and for an  understanding of the  relationship between large  ships and pleasure boats���is  "<s|C becoming most evident in our  Coast. The squadron makes  available through continuing  education, programs in  Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender  Harbour, a comprehensive  boating course that may be  followed up with advanced  courses in seamanship and  navigation.  Commander Don Hadden  and the Training Officer  Commander (ret) Kent  Carruthers have planned an  extensive educational program  for this fall.  With an awareness that some  people learn much more  quickly than others, the  squadron plans to have both  standard and accelerated  boating courses, also to  accommodate people with little  time to spare. Tentatively  planned is a standard twenty-  one week boating course to be  held in Sechelt once a week  commencing either September  19 or 20 (students vote on the  choice of night).  Accelerated boating courses  will be held in Pender Harbour  right after Labour Day and in  Gibsons right after New Year's  Day (fourteen weeks).  Upon graduation, students  are invited to become members  of the Squadron which entitles  them to take selective advance  courses and, last but not least,  to enjoy the social meetings  with keen boating types who  have learned to combine  pleasure with safety and  knowledge of seamanship and  navigation in both power and  sail. It is interesting to note that  the dedicated members that  each the courses, do so without  remuneration.  Interested persons are  invited to contact either Don  Hadden at 885-9504 or Kent  Carruthers at 885-9025 should  they wish any details  concerning the boating courses  offered.

Coast News, August 21,1979  On becoming a Rover       |  Ramblings of a Rover   z~i\zr7T.    o  by Dee Cee  It was now the Spring of 1924  and my schooldays were  drawing to a close. My interest  in the opposite sex had waned  somewhat after my Piccadilly  excursion. I really am unable to  explain the effect it had on me  but strangely I did not mention  it to my school mates or discuss  it with them. I am sure they  would have hooted in derision  had I told them I was off  femailes for life and perhaps it  is as well I didn't let them know  as that was far from the case, as  subsequent events were later to  prove.  Another thing I lost interest  in was sports. I had never been  much of an athlete although I  had played right-half in our  shcool soccer team. Cricket I  dismissed as a sissy's game but,  as I have said earlier, I really  followed the boxing game and  at one time seriously thought of  taking it up professionally. I  am sure I wouldn't have got  very far as I had too hot a  temper and when things were  going badly or I got stung by a  harder than usual blow I lost  my head, threw all caution to  the winds and went after my  opponent with only one  thought in mind���annihilate  him and, if I could, kill him  right there and then!  One thing I have never been  able to understand is the  general public's interest in  sports���in some cases a  preoccupation that supersedes  all others, as witness the  amount of space that is devoted  in most newspapers to the  subject, the ballyhoo attached  to the N.H.L. and A.F.L. and  the huge stadiums and arenas  erected to hold the thousands  who attend the big games. I am  well aware of the hundreds of  thousands, if not millions, of  dollars that are involved but as  far as I am concerned I lost all  interest in chasing a ball when I  put on long pants and started  chasing women! I had a  neighbour who was such an  avid fan of football and hockey  that he could recite the names  of all the teams in the major_  leagues as well as the individual  players in each team and, not  only for the present and coming  season, but for the past also!  Such a phenomenal memory,  but strangely enough he could  not identify the trees growing in  his back lot; he didn't know a  balsam from a cedar, a  hemlock from a Douglas fir; he  never wrote a letter or read a  book���his mind was so tied up  in sports it had no room to  contain anything else.  I find that one of the most  difficult aspects in attempting  to write is my tendency to stray  away from what I intended to  write about and to get into  other things I hadn't even given  any thought to when I took pen  in hand. So now let's get back  to the end of school.  My father told me many  times, when I complained how  long it was all taking and of my  desires to get out in the world  and get started, "to make the  most of your schooldays, they  are the happiest days of your  life". How true that later  proved to be���no worries, no  responsibilities, in my case a  loving home to come to and  wonderful parents, all I could  eat and a warm comfortable  bed at night. In later years I was  to think of my Dad's advice but  at the time I was so impatient to  get started I shrugged it off and  paid no heed.  Came Spring and then the  Easter holidays and once more  back to the grindstone. This  summer term was, as far as  getting an education was  concerned, a crucial period as  at the end of it we were required  to write our examinations. In  the case of the F. Grammar  School it was for the Oxford  University School Certificate  and with that in one's  possession one was thought to  be ready to face the world���go  on to university or enter some  trade or profession of one's  liking or inclination.  I spent the Easter down at  Acton farm near Charing, a  farm my Uncle Edwin owned.  One of my three girl cousins  (the same ones whom I  mentioned earlier on in the  mushroom hunts) played the  piano beautifully and I  remember so well in the  evenings, after a long and tiring  day and a delicious supper, I  used to stand out on the lawn  watching the sun sinking over  my uncle's fields and dreaming  of the day I would be "free". I  knew nothing of music except I  liked her to play the Destiny  Waltz and I think the other was  Rendez-Vous Roccoco.  Anyway back to school, a  frantic last minute cramming of  all the subjects I hadn't paid  much attention to, mountains  of homework and then the  dreaded day arrived and the  exams were on.  Yes I passed! I still have the  certificate, tattered and worn,  to attest to the fact that I had  attended the F. Grammar  School for at least three years  and had passed the examinations with credit in four  subjects, English Language and  Literature (in spite of the  distracting pink and pale blue  knickers!), French written and  oral, Drawing, and you will  never guess the next, of all  things, History, which certainly  speaks well for the formidable  Miss Rebecca Pym as I was one  of her most recalcitrant pupils.  My passing with credit in  Drawing was my tribute to the  gentle and understanding Mr.  Cassie who not only taught  Geography but Art as well. Of  all the teachers, male and  female, I liked him the most  and I am sure it was  reciprocated as for many years  afterwards he called into the  shop to inquire of my father  how D. was doing out in the  world. At times D. wasn't  doing too well but then, of  course, neither my Dad nor Mr.  Cassie were to know of that.

This message sponsored by:  unshineM  ���  M.D.L. 5436  Drive Safely  No Min talk here - just a poignant  thought  from  our President.  The  papers and television news are full of  all kinds of things that are of earth  shattering Importance, so they say,  when in fact our most important asset  and concern should be our children.  Without them and their ability to guide  and control their destinies, there is no  future. All the oil or gold in the world  will mean very little. We must make  every effort to protect and guide them.  A good start would be to eliminate the  word "permissive" from our  vocabulary, to teach and instruct, and  to earn the respect of our children  which, in turn, will give them much-  needed respect for themselves, for  they will inherit the earth-or what there  is left of it.  <$4#**  SCHOOLS  OPEN  DRIVE  CAREFULLY
