Out in Bargain Harbour, beyond the mist rising up  from a fringe of trees along the  shoreline, Ihe  China Cloud  floats over Ihe surface  like  a  mirage.  Il is a quietly arresting sight,  with an almost fairy tale quality  about it. The lines of the Chinese junk curve low towards the  water, while the stern sils high.

"It"s probably reasonable that we will get this  LRUP up and running quite quickly  now," said Brian Hawrys, timber  resource officer responsible for the  Elphinstone plan. He said he hoped  to hold a first meeting before the  end of the month.  The Elphinstone plan was going  to be reactivated last year, but was  delayed because the resource people  needed for the committee were tied  up with the Tetrahedron LRUP,  which has only just reached draft  plan stage after more than a year of  discussions, Hawrys said. He predicted the Elphinstone LRUP will  not take nearly as long to complete because Ihe  committee won't have to start from scratch.  Data on soils mapping, terrain hazard mapping  and water licence location was collated between  1985 and 1988 during an earlier attempt at drawing up an LRUP for Elphinstone. "It will probably  have to be added to and expanded," Hawrys said.  "I'm sure additional information will be required  as well."  Once a committee has been struck it will review  the original terms of reference for the plan, drawing on suggestions from a cross-section of community groups, industry and government agencies -  such as water management and fish and wildlife.  It's hard to  drum up  enthusiasm...  people are tired  of attending a  never-ending  stream of  meetings  "They're all quite committed to the LRUP process," Hawrys said.  The review will also involve a 43-page report  presented last year by Concerned Coast Residents,  a local environmental group which has been lobbying for selective logging in the Elphinstone  region. Hawrys noted there are similar reports  from industry to consider.  "The guidelines for selective  logging are one of the things the  committee will look at lo have  them assess whether it's credible or  otherwise," he said. "Other reports  were generated (by industry consultants) which indicate other systems (of logging) would be more  favorable."  District forester Barry Mountain  said the earlier Elphnistone plan  was sidelined when key forestry  officials were transferred from the  Sunshine Coast. Pressure from  concerned residents in Roberts Creek reacitivaled  it last year. "It sounds like it's going ahead now." a  cautious Mountain said. "One of the dangers we  always face is getting the public's expectations up  then not being able to deliver for a number of reasons."  One problem the ministry could be facing is  lack of support from those who have been  involved in the Tetrahedron plan. Committee  member Harry Almond, recently appointed chairman of Sechelt's forest resource council, said it is  difficult to drum up enthusiasm for new initiatives  when people are tired of attending a never-ending  stream of meetings.  done.  "It's kind of like the btxik of  the month club," noted Mayor  MacLarty, "you have lo say  'no' if you don't want it "  Wilson said il was incorrect  for the SCRD to create the feeling the central dispatch was an  emergency matter that needed  lo be decided as soon as possible.  "The only emergency is  they have lo meet Ihe regional  district budget or ihey lose a  year (on the project)," Wilson  said.  He said if the project could  cost Coast taxpayers $35 on a  $100,000 of property over 10  years as projected, then they  "deserved" a lull referendum  and that politics should be left  out of the issue.  "I'm not speaking against  911," Wilson continued, "but  this isn't 911, this is a step  toward 911."  He pointed out that central  dispatch didn't necessarily unite  all Ihe emergency rescue units  on the Coast, only the fire  departments.  SCRD director Brett  McGillivrey has said he is optimistic the RCMP and ambulance services with "get on  Sechelt  Adlerman  Bob Wilson  board" once the central dispatch  is operational.  Alderman Peggy Wagner  said she was concerned about  the number ol petition-signing  locations, which include the  municipal buildings of Gibsons.  Sechell. the regional district and  possibly the Indian government  district.  It was noted that many elderly people might not he able to  gel to a polling place and. therefore, might not get their vote  recorded.  Council approval  given for unified  government talks  Sechelt council gave approval in principle hist Wednesday lor  Mayor Nancy MacLarty to pursue lalks with Gibsons Mayor Eric  Small and SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor toward the formation of  one municipal government for the Coast.  "This just so I can talk with the oilier governments toward establishing a concept...," MacLarty told council  All on council were in favour of the move except Alderman Bob  Wilson who said lie was nervous about voting 'in principle' lor anything ol this nature.  "It starts oil simply enough." Wilson said, "but before you know it  you are being told you voted lor something you didn't vote for"  MacLarty saiil Connor and Small would be asking Iheir respective  boards and councils for a similar vote of confidence.  "This is a resolution that's being past al all the local governments," MacLarty said.  She told the Coast News lite resolution was a "nebulous" agreement in that it didn't commit anyone lo any course of action. "Il  gives us the right to stun lo talk about this concept and bring back  recommendations to council," MacLarty said.

Two masked males  ordered Brehm lo empty Ihe  contents of the till into a  paper bag and demanded  cigarettes "Automatically, I  asked them what kind,"  Brehm recalled in disbelief  at his reaction. "It's just a  habit."  The robbers seized a  small quantity of cash and  six packs of cigarettes -four  Export medium and two Du  Mattrier kings, all that was  available in their preferred  brands - left the store and  lied up the highway. The gun  remained in sight the whole  lime.  Breliin said a regular customer walked into the gas  station less than a minute  later. "It was very, very  close. It could have turned  into a real mess."  In a press release, Sechelt  RCMP Cst. Bruce Haynes  noted the suspects, believed  lo be native, had their faces  covered and fled the scene  on foot. A police investigation into the robbery is continuing.  Brehm said he has never  been confronted before, let  alone by armed robbers, in  two years working the night  shift. He said he has never  heard of an armed robbery in  20 years living on the Coast  "There's been lots of break  and enters, but never anything like this.

Ernie Burnett says Chief Tom Paul was thrilled  with the offer. "I'm just giving it back to the people it really belongs to," Burnett said.  He said his collection was recently catalogued  by Margaret Holm, an anthropologist with the University of British Columbia, who told Burnett his  'rock' collection contained pieces called  ammonite, dating from the Carboniferous Period -  285 million to 70 million years ago.  The majority of the Native collection was  acquired in the midland Fraser basin where the  Fraser Hotel in Vancouver now stands. Burnett  will be handing over the collection at a special  meeting in the Roberts Creek Legion. 2pm, Sun-  dav Feb. 9. Coasl News.

New  Ferry Fares  Since February 3. 1992 new fares have  been in effect on all of BC Ferries 26 routes.  On major routes between the Mainland  and Vancouver Island, the new fare for car  and driver is $25.50. The adult passenger  fare is $5.50. The Sunshine Coast and  Comox - Powell River routes also have  these new fares.  The BC Ferries 1992 fare brochure,  listing fares for all the routes, will be  available soon at BC Ferries offices, on  board vessels, and at major Information  Centres.  H BCFGRRIG5  Port Mellon industrial park means  future Sunshine Coast employment  by Stuart Burnside  It encompasses about 470  acres, it will house numerous  forestry related industries in an  "environmentally safe atmosphere" and it is expected lo  create upwards of 600 jobs for  the Sunshine Coast.  It's Port Mellon's Hillside  Industrial Park, to be developed  on the site of a depleted gravel  extraction operation.  When Hillside is completed,  in five to 10 years according to  economic development chairman Maurice Egan, it is expected to house a variety of  forest-related industries and  small off-shoot businesses.  Egan pointed out that Bayside  Sawmills is already established  in the park and provides some  110 jobs.  Egan said the park could also  include:  ���a log sorting yard, where  timber from log booms is  brought on land and graded;  ���a dry kiln for drying wood.  ���a residue fuel (hog fuel)  preparation site is also a possibility for Hillside. Scrap and  waste wood from the various  wood product manufacturers  could be pulverized and shipped  to HSPP to be burned in boiler  fires. Such waste is currently  burned in open fires;  ���a marine terminal lo give  access to the industrial park  from boats and barges;  ���a demonstration forest  designed to show residents and  interested parties the forestry  process, from planting of trees  after cutting to reharvesting.;  ���a park land reserve lo protect two fish-spawning streams  if  'EXTRA!

According to EDC  officer Bill Moore, the need for  'We had a lot of  faith and  enthusiasm...'  bulk fuel storage was the initial  purpose for developing the sile.  Moore said former Gibsons  mayor Larry Labonte had noted  the Hillside site would be an  ideal location for the Sunshine  Coast's retail fuel companies  (ICG, Petro Can, Shell, Esso,  etc.) to store their respective  products safely and more conveniently than is presently done.  At thai lime, Construction  Aggregates of Sechelt was just  finishing a gravel extraction  "WHERE QUALITY COMES FIRST"  BAIT AND BLOWN  ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY  CZELIXJLOSE  ,;,<,>!<-<���  0 886-8741 ��  operation on the land at Hillside  and was negotiating with the  provincial government to turn  the site over as part of a $2-mil-  lion payment deal with the  province.  Labonte's idea about fuel  storage was taken further by the  SCRD, who approached the  provincial government about  establishing the industrial park.  Initially the SCRD was to act  as the middle agent, providing  for all the engineering work and  geotechnical surveys, as well as  uniting the government with  prospective buyers or leasers for  the land as the park developed.  "The government was very  skeptical about the project,"  Moore told Ihe Coasl News.  "They had been burned before  in similar situations by committing lime and money to developing industrial areas lhat are  still standing empty."  After extensive negotiation  wilh the various branches of  government, and continuing  skepticism for the plan from  Victoria, Egan asked the government to consider selling the  used gravel pit to ihe SCRD.  The (Socred) government  agreed and a year ago the EDC  took control of the project.  "We had a lol of faith and  enthusiasm for the concept,"  Egan said, "and we still do."  The 10-year time frame for  the project, according to Egan,  will allow the park to evolve  slowly and reduce the risk of  mistakes. He pointed out there  are already interested groups  waiting to set up in the area.  According to Moore, the  project will be financed in incri-  ments, with payments being  made as land is sold or leased.  "It shouldn't cost regional district taxpayers anything,"  Moore said.  The EDC estimates that the  finished Hillside development  will generate $35 million annually for the Coast's economy.

Council didn't express wild support  for the idea.  "We have people coming up  here selling stereo sets out of the  backs of trucks, people selling  flowers, (etc.)" Shanks  explained to council Wednesday. "It cuts into the profit margins of the local businesses."  He said one peddler had told  him of earning more than $3,000  on a weekend selling his wears  in Sechelt. "And I'd like to put  a stop to it," Shanks said.  He went on to say that  "because I have been called on  numerous occasions - on Satur  days - concerning this very  thing, I would like this council  to give me the authority, or deputize me, lo act as a part-lime  bylaw enforcement officer for  just these very occasions."  Shanks said approval for his  request would hinge on consultation with municipal staff, to  make sure no union regulations  were being violated.  He said his appointment  would benefit the community.  "People could phone me (if  accosted by a peddler), 1 would  come down, and if the (peddler)  didn't have a business licence, I  could show them the way out of  town."  Shanks also said the price  some of the televisions and  stereos are being 'peddled' for  indicated "they must be hot."  Sechelt Alderman  Michael Shanks  Shanks said Sechelt's bylaw  enforcement officer, Alan  MacPherson, could provide the  necessary protection, but he's  not around on weekends.  Mayor Nancy MacLarty  noted that MacPherson was on  call over the weekends lo deal  with situations like peddlers.  Administrator Art Lew said  the RCMP were willing to help  with such situations, but added  he wasn't aware of any complaints at the municipal offices  about peddlers. He said a meeting would be held with  MacPherson to discuss the situation.  Shanks asked to be present  during the meeting with the  bylaw enforcement officer and  added that that he would tell the  people who contacted him complaining about peddlers to make  their complaints more widely  known al municipal hall.

Albcrtville was then an unknown industrial town, languishing at the foot of a mountain in the French Alps.  Four years on, the inescapable fact of Albertville's existence is invading millions of homes worldwide as winter  sports enthusiasts gather about the glow of their TV  screens for a two-week infusion of international competition,  Only a slim minority will find nothing in the games to  whet titeir appetite, as top athletes push themselves to the  limits of hitman physical endeavour.  Grace, artistry, s|>ml ami power seem at their apogee in  winter sports, from the dizzying control of the figure  skaters lo the death -defying descents of downhill skiers.  Yes, there is plenty of excitement to look forward to.  Bill there is another side to these Games, a dire legacy  far Irom the enduring moments of sheer magic the world  will witness, While the rest of France proudly busks in the  global limelight, four of the 13 villages hosting the sporting events face bankruptcy because of profligate spending  on the Olympics.  With some $800 million being sunk into the Games  themselves, a further $1 billion has been invested into  lavish infrastructure projects by communities desperately  trying to revive their tourist fortunes by attracting new  business.  The village of Brides-les-Bains has come up $15 million short - a rude miscalculation in a region already glutted with resorts - trying to hitch its economic wagon to  the Olympian star.  So in soaking up the glitz of the Games in the coming  days, spare a thought for the gentle folk of Albertville and  environs. The Olympics have put them briefly on the  map, but at what price'.'  Get out and vote  If you don't vote, you'll miss a chance to have a say in  what goes on in your community. And in this time of  rapid development and long-term planning, your say is  important.  District of Sechelt residents should get out and vote in  the aldermanic by-election Saturday, Feb. 15.  The polling station will be open at muncipal hall from  8 am to 8 pm. Mobile polls will also be available at  Shornecliffe, Greenecourt and St. Mary's Hospital.  Monkeys and uncles  Canada's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister  Don Mazankowski assured us last week that he would be  'a monkey's uncle' if he could see how to reduce the GST  by one per cent without apparently bankrupting the country.  This is the same Deputy Prime Minister in the same  government who sat gravely on the front government  bench whilst his predecessor, Michael Wilson, assured us  a couple of years ago that the proposed GST would be  'revenue neutral'.  Uncle Brian, Uncle Michael, and Uncle Don have  made monkeys out of us all.  5  ��Httiiwj if    Jmmmm  "        7!   -^r~  . V/E HAD SCMt ASIUAIT  T   tEFTOVlK_  letters  \y jyJsKils/ \ >^yl^ylh  Value existing  treasures  1 attended the public meeting  in Sechelt, Wednesday, Jan. 29  regarding the proposed alternative 'Major Road Network' or  highway through Wilson Creek  and Davis Bay, which would  bisect productive farmland, disrupt two salmon-spawning  streams, cut close lo a school  yard, 'trap' rural family neighbourhoods between two highways and bring danger, filth and  far-reaching sound pollution  with it.  We who attended the packed  meeting voiced our opinion  clearly - "We Don't Want It!'  Many there I spoke with agreed  thai a highway along the power-  line (as planned in the past)  would provide a respite for our  local access road. Highway 101,  and would be far from most  existing farms and general  peaceful rural settlement.  The type of access which is  provided to newly subdivided  properties will have an enormous impact upon the quality  and nature of the growth we are  certainly experiencing now. We  like driving slowly along a  country road lo get home!  I wish I could I live right on  Highway 101, and while I don't  like it, have learned to put up  with it. This isn't always easy. I  always hear traffic: airbrakes,  squealing tires, homs, booming  radios and sirens.  Deer, racoons, dogs and cats  have died at my front door. I've  heard accidents, called ambulances and administered firsl aid  to the injured.  I often walk away to the bottom of this lovely property  where it is peaceful and my  head can clear. I really value the  many beautiful places here.  where repose is lo be found. I  love lo give visitors an unexpected delight by making an  impromptu detour to the farm of  Arthur Clark up Tyson Road  'for eggs', I say.  There is also a wide array of  organic veggies in summer as  well as fruit, flowers, hay and  the famous tender com. But I go  for the beauty of it - the classic  barn-red buildings full of hay,  tidy orchard, black-soil veggie  garden with flowers rampaging  through il and the wide fertile  hay fields with forest behind  show more than 30 years of  hard work paying off in loveliness any day of the year.  What I notice there most of  all is the utter tranquility.  One can hear only creek  sounds, birds and wind. The  proposed highway would not  only shatter that peace permanently, bul would also render  40-plus acres of this fertile, productive jewel of ours useless.  1 think priorities in planning  have been upside-down and  backwards in this case: we need  lo value and honour Ihe treasures we have.

MARSHALL  Penticton  Joe Who taking Canadian belt from Prophet Pierre  There was a poignant little story caught my  attention last week. Apparently former prime minister Pierre Eliot Trudeau and a few of his old Liberal cohorts meet around this time of year for a  nostalgic look back to the time when, against all  expectations, they masterminded the downfall of  Joe Clark and the comeback of the old champion,  the enigmatic Trudeau, for one more session at the  centre of Canadian politics and Canadian history.  They are, it seems, not a little puzzled and a little hurt these days, the old band of Trudeau loyalists. No doubt the universe is unfolding as it  should, as the hip Mr. Trudeau once assured Canadians with a shrug at a moment of national crisis,  but Canadian constitutional history does not seem  to be about to unfold as the Trudeau-ites would  have it.  What seems to be upsetting Pierre and his  actlytes is a developing mood in Ihe country in  favour of what is now being called asymetry in the  onstitutiona! affairs of Canada, or what used to be  called special status for Quebec. According to the  dot. 'rine of Prophet Pierre, this is an irreversible  ���tep on the way to separatism.  Trudeau, be it remembered, was a radical journalist and wealthy playboy in his native province  before accepting prime minister Lester Pearson's  invitation to come to Ottawa along with his radical  friends Pelletier and Marchand. The 'three wise  men from Quebec' were, in Pearson's scenario, to  revitalize a fading Liberal party. In this they sue-  musings  john burnside  ceeded.  In Trudeau's scenario the three were lo bolster  a strong central government for Canada with Quebec playing a significant role as a full and equal  partner. Success here is not quite as clear; the central government has been bolstered bul Quebec is  more unhappy than it was before the three wise  men rode out of the east and into Ihe nation's capital. And this is the root cause of the puzzlement  and hurt that seems to be the lot of the former  prime minister and his dwindling band of  unswerving loyalists.  What heady days they were back in the late  I960's when Trudeau bobbed coyly on a tide of  adoration and into power. The dimpled, twinkling  sophisticate with the rose in his lapel and women  aching to kiss him was just what Canada wanted  back then. A decade-long struggle between John  Diefenbaker and Lester Pearson had been about as  exciting as watching ice thicken in the winter time.  Then Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau's dream of  an international exposition succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams and suddenly Canada was a  major and sophisticated player on the world's  stage and Pierre Eliot Trudeau, the swinging bachelor unfettered by any of the conventional ties,  seemed to reflect just exactly the image that Canadians suddenly felt they should be projecting.  When he left office some 16 years later for the  last time many Canadians hated the man as fully as  they adored him when he arrived. What seems to  be new is the dawning realization, painful to the  Trudeau loyalists, that brilliant and dashing as he  was and focused as he was largely on matters constitutional, Trudeau was from the beginning, in all  probability, largely a red herring in Canadian historical development.  The cautious consensus in favour of special status for Quebec which seems to be developing after  years of constitutional crisis is antithetical to the  doctrine of Prophet Pierre. And, indeed, such status for Quebec has been recognized since a full  100 years before Canada became Canada. The  right to its own language and the Napoleonic Code  of Laws was accorded Quebec as part of the settling process after the Conquest in the 18th century.  To deny that the province has special status in the  20th century seems to more and more Canadians a  strange, unnecessary and untenable position.  The victory that Trudeau's dwindling band still  celebrates over Joe Clark lives in the memory as  vintage Trudeau. Oh, he lacerated poor old Joe, all  right. Do you remember how he hooked his fingers  in his bell for all the world like some old gunfight-  er coming down main street for one last show  down wilh the constitutional bad guys. He dominated the election almost as much as he had dominated his first, and Canadians again bought Ihe  image.  Yup, we bought the image of Pierre the old  gunslinger as we bought the image of Pierre the  cosmopolitan sophisticate. Five years later,  Trudeau doomed John Turner with an enormous  load of cynical patronage as he left the stage and  we were welcoming Brian Mulroney.  Now, Joe Clark has become possibly the only  respected figure on the national stage and if anyone holds Ihe country together it is more likely to  be Joe Who than Pierre lite Prophet.  That master of mortality's muse, A.E. Hous-  man, once noted the tragedy of "runners whom  renown outran, where the name died before the  man." It may be the lol of Canada's most brilliant  and most arrogant prime minister to live long  enough to see all of his ideas refuted bv Ihe  unfolding universe and the Canadian people.  As one who campaigned against him in Montreal in 1968, there will be no tears shed for him in  this comer. He was an arrogant chancer, an opportunist for whom hubris has been surely waiting.  c&mt  The Sunshine Coast News is (orally owned  and published on ihe Sunshine Coast.

Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News, February 10, 1992 5  opinion  Easter Island...source of the rain  We don't have to say anything alutut Ihe rain 1 mean, man, it has  ben raining here on the Sunshine Coast! All very well about us hav  ing the highest average temperature ever. It has been raining.  What they say aboul this is thai il is somehow the result of a current in the sea, our sea, the Pacific, which hy deviating a jol here and  there can cause all this stuff to be tailing on us pretty well constantly  through the whoreson winter.  Well. So I Kxiked it up in the alias, and there it is, a known current, little parallel arrows on the blue for the sea, sweeping up the  coast of Chile, but turning strangely west before it gets to Peru Anil  there in the middle of it, far oul lo sea, in the loneliest part of any sea  in the world is a liny dot on Ihe map which is Easier Island  I'm not suggesting that Easier Island is directly responsible for all  this rain we've been gelling, but il is odd wouldn't you Bay? Here is  this mysterious island, which has foxed the best scientific brains in  the world for a hundred years, and there il is right sprang in the middle of what is in fact causing us floods and avalanches and day to day  dismal downpours,  What about this island'.' There is magic, of course, associated wilh  it Everyone knows that there are these immense stone heads, all the  same, sunk in Ihe earth and gazing oul lo sea. What nobody knows  for sure is how did these early fellows carve litem out of lite rock, and  move them miles and miles over a rocky terrain, and set them up,  when Ihey didn't have any kind of metal tools and hadn't even  invented Ihe wheel. Some of them were over four stories tall and  weighed ovet twenty tons.  A Dutchman was the first European to gel there. He reported lhat  many of the people were white-skinned and had red hair Then a  Spaniard, anil there was a 'misunderstanding' and a number of Easter  Islanders got shot When the next ship arrived, maybe 50 years later,  there was hardly anybody around. Where had Ihey all gone? Everyone had noticed before that they seemed not lo have any ocean-going  vessels  A theory at the lime was that they had hidden themselves away in  caves in the volcanic rock This was poo-pooed by people then, bul it  turned out lo Ik1 the case. The island is honey-combed with caves,  many of which are linked by horrid little passages in the rock that you  can hardly wriggle through, in the pitch dark of course.  Thor Heyerdalil, the Kon-Tiki man, got there in '56 with a well  organized expedition, including good archaeologists who would dig  there for the first lime. And dig they did, and the story lo a large  extent unfolded, leaving, it seems to me, still a nice amount of mysle-  rioso.  in a nutshell  s. nutter  There have been, it seems, three separate peoples who had got  somehow or another at various limes lo this remote spot One was  white-skinned, wore beards anil had their ted hair done up in lop  knots These were the architects and sculptors of the great stone let  races, lilted perfectly without mortar, and the Spectaculat statues The  Others, Polynesians, had Ix'en ro|K'd in to move all this weight around  and lo generally busy themselves in the quarries.  A labour dispute broke out at one point, and there lacing no media  tors then, moved rapidly into a full civil war All the work in the  quarries, as eveyrone can see today, stopped abrubtly. Tools were  downed and hair-completed Statues remain there lo this day The  workers disap|icarcil into iheir undiscoveraltle caves and the topknots  retired behind an immense ditch, beautifully lined in stone, culling  off a peninsula at an end of the island. They smiled this with wood,  and if attacked, would set fire lo it and become impregnable.  Alas, one of them had married a woman from the other side. She  made a deal that if she was lo lx- seen silling al a particular place  weaving a basket il would be OK for warriors to sneak around the  end and station themselves behind the topknots When Ihe battle was  begun, and thi,' fire in the ditch lit, Ihey were all driven in and that  was ihe end of them (Except for one, legend has it.)  Today Ihe caves are still the closely guarded secrets of the families  who own them, and the ditch, dug into, provides every evidence to  back the ancient story The caves contain the wealth of the families  and are presided over by baleful spirits (aku-aku) who wreak instant  and terrible vengeance if unauthorized people are allowed in.  The wealth'.' The wealth is mostly carved stones from ancient  days: figures, whales and surprisingly, three masted ships never  known before.  Anyway, that's Easier Island in the middle of the current where  the rain comes front. At least it's not Chernobyl,  PASTIMES.

We are  appalled to discover that the  Gibsons Bus is being forced to  drop its service at the end of  this month. This is one of the  best bus services we have here  in Gibsons and we feel that the  loss of it would be a great  inconvenience to many.  We use this bus several  times a week and would be lost  without it. We would really like  to see help in some way for this  service to continue.

Isn't it lime that we all give  the Gibsons Pageant a hard  look? Perhaps another approach  is warranted given the 'enlightened' age we now live in.  The organizers of Miss  Canada and Miss Teen Canada  Pageants have set a worthwhile  precedent in cancelling both  events because, among other  reasons, they were out of step  wilh public values today. It is  our impression lhat many young  women are harnessed by expectations communicated through  Ihe media about how they  should look, dress, speak and  carry themselves.  It is time that the Gibsons  Pageant broaden its scope and  metamorphose into an event  thai recognizes the importance  of leadership over modelling  and deportment, citizenship  over hair and make-up skills,  school visits and public interviews over fashion shows. Let's  offer our community's young  women and young men an  opportunity to grow by providing a tradition that will develop  and test their resolve to be con-  tributive, dedicated and responsible members of our  community.  It's time we move beyond  appearances and raise the profile of citizenship in the broad  est sense of the term.  We would be pleased to help  make this happen.

I  found some yellow cedar on the  beach and I pot it sawn into ribs  and stringers...Il look lour and  half years because I bad lii  make a living tit the same lime,  fishing and repairing boats and  building rowlmats for people."  The actual building wasn't  difficult, though, says Farrell  "I'd built thai 'roller before, and  I'd learned how to Imild a row  boat. Riiililing a hig boat is just  like building a huge rowhoat,  only then you put the deck  beams and cabin and bulkheads  and things on It's really not  that different."  They moved 'aboard llje,.  ���: <>���  The   China    Cloud,   a   40-foot  Windsong, a .16 foot schooner  with an Easthope engine, in  1948. In 1931, they made their  firsl Pacific journey in it to  Hawaii and Figi.  Over the next .10 years, there  were many more boats and journeys. There was the Ocean Girl,  a 45-fOOt hriganlllte, which Far  rell built on Kate's Island, south  of Rargain Harbour and sailed  to Mexico and Hawaii. There  was Native Girl, a 39-foot  schooner built in Green Bay on  Nelson Island.  Over the years, Farrell has  built over 40 boats, including  six which the couple lived  aboard anil sailed lo destinations around the Pacific. All the  boats were built by hand.  "All the oldliniers did in  those days. That's how we  Chinese   junl.  jar.e Seyd photo  learned," says Farrell, who  counts an axe, a plane, a couple  of handsaws and hammers, an  auger hit and a breast drill  among his essential boat-building tools "Once or twice I did  try somebody's power tools,"  he says "I didn't like them I  didn't like the noise and the  dust and them not cutting  straight I don't like machinery.  It slinks and it's noisy and it's  polluting. It's just not my  style."  Farrell's latest boat, which  the couple has lived aboard for  tbe past 1(1 years, is the China  Cloud, a 40-foot Chinese junk.  The boat is shallow and its lines  curve low towards the water,  while the stern is higher than  most western boats.  There are three distinctly  shaped sails, which are held lo  the masts at inteivals by lines  called |>artells The masts thein  selves come down through the  bant, into wooden linings called  tabernacles The whole arrange  menl eliminates the need for  typical western tigging, which  means the junk is an exception  ally quiet boat, without the  sound ol flapping sails, wind  blowing on tin- lines, or the  ringing of the boom  The keel came from a log  which a friend was going lo use  for firewood. There was yellow  cedar for the |iosls and red cedar  for the stem and stent "knees"  There was teak for the inside of  the cabin, juni|��cr for the tahcr  nacles, and a small amount of  Japanese maple   The cleats,  which ihe mpes are fastened to,  were made of lignum vitae, a  very haul tropical wood Then-  are no metal fillings anywhere  on hoaid  There is also no engine.  Instead, there is a special 19  fool curved sculling oar, called  a yuloh "II Ihe wind's blow  ing, we use our sails. If it's  calm, we use the yuloh or wait,"  says Farrell.  There are charts and a com  pass, but no Loran or automatic  pilot "We know where we're  going," says Farrell, "I look at  the shore to see how last we're  going " Once in the log, he  says, he navigated hy listening  to a dog harking on the shore .  Farrell says the China Cloud  will he his last boat, because ils  been Ihe fastest and easiest to  sail with. It's lightweight and  manoeuvrable. "It's got everything we like almul it."  Lasqueti Island is "home  base" now, but the couple still  sail into Rargain Harbour at  least once a year, in the winter.  A lifetime of building and  living aboard their own boats  has meant serenity and freedom  to do what they wanted, says  Farrell, who is XII this year.

Axe-wielding intruder detained  An axe-wielding man  Sechelt RCMP say is mentally  unstable was detained early  Wednesday morning after  breaking into an occupied house  in West Sechelt.  Shortly after 1 a.m., RCMP  received a report from residents  on Nonian Road complaining of  noises outside iheir house. With  police on their way lo investi  gate, an unidentified man, then  unarmed, broke a kitchen window and entered the home. The  residents fled and constables  arrived to find Ihe culprit still in  the home, ile found and brandished an axe, threatening to cut  off his own hand, police said.  RCMP kepi iheir dislance  until ihe man, clearly agitated,  was startled by a constable who  broke a window in the back of  Ihe house. "We're not sure if the  axe just slipped out of his hand  or he threw it deliberately or  what," said Corp. Bruce  Haynes. "It just went right out  the window."

But  when pictures on the screen are  activated, a voice digitizer in  this computer speaks ihe words  of a culture which has been  around for thousands of years,  many generations before the  first white person arrived in  North America.  This is part of a HyperCard  computer program designed lo  help teach the Sechelt language.  And this blend of the latest  technology and an ancient culture is one of the more fascinating ways that Smith is  developing parts of a native curriculum, for both the school system and the larger community.  The project, begun a year  and a half ago. is a joint effort  of the school district and the  Sechell Indian Band. It was  started after both groups decided there was a need to have  some kind of native studies,  based specifically on the  Sechelt people, integrated into  the school system. That way,  both native and non-native students would have a better  understanding of Sechelt culture  and history.  "There were cultural needs  that weren't being met," says  Smith, the co-ordinator for the  project. "Any native group they  were studying, it was always the  Haida or a group back east."  Now, the Year 2000 program  has put greater emphasis on  development of local resources,  which will allow programs and  activities which focus specifically on the Sechelt band to be  integrated into the regular curriculum. The interdisciplinary  nature of the Year 2000 program also makes it easier to  include local Sechelt material,  says Smith. For instance, a  series of Sechelt legends made  'There were  cultural needs  that weren't being  met'  into children's books could be  used for both the language arts  and social studies areas.  Smith has all kinds of ideas  that he'd eventually like to  develop: a unit on mask-making  for art students, videotapes on  both traditional and commercial  fishing methods, a study on  self-government for the high  school level.  But it's important, says  Smith, that the native material  not be developed in isolation.  Projects must be developed both  wilh local teachers, to make  sure that it can be used, and  with Sechelt elders, to make  sure it's an accurate reflection  of their culture.  So far, one of the main tasks  has been digging up accurate  research on the Sechell culture,  which has had to be pieced  together from old archival material, memories of elders and a  few early studies by researchers  in the 1950s.  One aspect of the project  which has been developed is the  Sechelt language program,  Make your move.  namiciPBCTian.

The language program is also  run in conjuntion with the Mon-  Ay-Mon preschool operated on  the band lands, where the eventual goal is to have most of the  program taught in Sechelt.  The HyperCard computer  program, which uses the voice  of an older Sechelt band member, is also a popular tool,  which Smith hopes to eventually have running in both the  preschool and the elementary  school.

FEB 15  FOR ALDERMAN  PON ROSE  X  YOUR POLLING PLACE  SECHELT MUNICIPAL OFFICE  5545 Inlet Ave., Sechelt    8:00am - tkOOpm  Parents lobby for more bus service  Parents up the far end of  Hanbury Road in Sechelt say  they'll continue driving their  children to school, following a  recent school board decision not  to extend a bus route from the  current pick-up and drop-off  point at the comer of Lockyer  and Hanbury.  "We all just drive. We don't  have any choice," says Janice  Ritchie, who has one daughter  in grade three and a son in  kindergarten. Ritchie says she's  been driving to school every  morning for the past four years,  since her daughter first started.  Parents of five elementary  school children living on Hanbury are in the same situation,  says Ritchie.  Although the distance lo Ihe  bus slop is within the school  board's "walking" limits, parents are concerned about the  isolated nature of the walk and  the potential threat of both  strangers and animals in the  area.  Four parents from Hanbury  Road signed a letter to school  trustees in December, requesting that the school bus route be  extended. But the school board  says because of an especially  tight budget this year, it doesn't  have the money.  The school board has a policy to guide which areas get  buses and how far the routes  extend, which takes into  account the distance children  must walk to the bus stop, lighting on Ihe roads, and other factors. In some cases, parents  receive money for driving their  children when a bus is required  by the guidelines, but can't be  made available.  "You can't run a bus everywhere," says Tim Anderson,  secretary-treasurer of the board.  "If you extend a bus route by 10  minutes, that bus now has to  pick up 10 minutes earlier at  another point on its route."  Every day, about 1,800 students - or 60 per cent of the stu-  . Friendly t.nunlry /^jjwri  IvNGK  dent population - are bused to  school on the Coast, at a cost of  approximately $750,000 a year.  The district uses 15 school  buses to run its routes, which  require complex scheduling  arrangements. "We basically  have to move 1,800 kids in an  hour and a quarter," says  Anderson. "It gets pretty com  plicated."  Meanwhile, the parents on  Hanbury Road say they will  continue to request a bus extension from the school board.

Suggestions  Visit your local library where you can lose  yourself for three or four hours jusl browsing.  Treat yourself to an afternoon at the arts centre.  Attend a council meeting. Take an afternoon off  and jusl window-shop. You may be pleasantly surprised at the astonishing array of things that are  now available to us. Spend a few hours in one of  the "collectable" shops thai have sprung up: who  knows? You may find thai treasure you've been  looking for! Even if you don't, it's fun to shop for  it. A lot of knowledge can be garnered from an  afternoon in an antique shop.  A New Year always brings with it a number of  promises, either to oneself or someone else. A new  job, new home, a new body, new relationship.  Why not make a promise to yourself that you will  treat yourself to a new experience?

It conjures up  images of Cupid, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, sentimental cards, flowers. It was originally  observed as the feast day for eight different Christian martyrs named Valentine.  When we were kids, Valentine's Day was the  one time of the year when you could express your  feelings to that 'someone special', anonymously.  The homemade decorated box in the comer of the  schoolroom was the most popular object in the  class for days before Valentines. We anguished  over whether we would get a valentine from that  special 'he' or 'she'! Guess who? was a popular  person in those days!  Like most everything else today, Valentine  cards have become collectable...oh if only we'd  known. I'm sure at least half a dozen of those  'guess who's' are millionaires today.

C6ast  H  Coast News, February 10, 1992 15  second section  Pilot decisions vital in floatplane safety  Flying the  BC coast  always has  element  of chance  ky Jane Seyd  It's not necessarily the weather, the age of Ihe plane or the  load being carried that's most  important to small floatplane  safety. More often, it's the ability of the pilot to make a decision.  "A lot of the safety in flying  really boils down to the relationship between the pilots and the  management who are running  the company," says Dale Leekie,  chief pilot for Tyee Airways in  Sechelt. "The pilots have to feel  they can make independent decisions."  A pilot's decision is just one  of the factors which is analyzed  following an airplane tragedy.  On Jan. 27, a twin-engine  Beechcraft from Rainbow Air  crashed shortly after takeoff  from Departure Bay in Nanaimo,  killing the pilot and all six passengers on board, en route to a  mill construction job at Port  Mellon.  Leekie didn't know the pilot  involved, but says anything  which comes that close lo home  is still a shock, despite the other  incidents he's witnessed in his  25 years of flying."That accident  in Nanaimo is not an easy one to  determine," says Leekie, who  Chief Pilot Dale Leekie prepares to fly this Cessna 185 on one of Tyee Airways' regularly scheduled flights to  Nanaimo Harbour. Jaw Seya pnoto.  flew into Nanaimo Harbour on a  regularly scheduled Tyee flight  four minutes after Ihe Beechcraft  crashed into Newcastle Channel.  "Everybody's looking for the  smoking gun - what pilots call  the golden nugget - where they  can say here's the part that failed  which caused the crash," he says.  "I'm not so sure they'll find  that."  Though flying conditions on  the south coast are generally belter than those on the north coasl  or Ihe outer west coast of the  province, weather is still an  important factor in floatplane  safety. The combination of  mountains and water create patterns of wind turbulence which a  pilot must be able to judge, and  weather can change dramatically  in short distances.  Experience of the pilot is  another important consideration.  Most coastal floatplane companies won't hire a pilot with less  than 1,000 hours flying time, and  young pilots usually head back  'Most seaplanes  are thrashed in  about eight years'  east for two or three years to get  some initial experience before  returning to the BC coast. Specific local experience is also  important, though, says Leekie,  because conditions vary so much  between coastal destinations.  The more experience a pilot has,  the easier it is to make estimates  and reach decisions.  Much has been made about  the age of the plane which  crashed in Nanaimo. But age of  the aircraft is often not that  important if the plane has been  maintained, says Leekie. "Most  seaplanes are thrashed in about  eight years of use" because of  the corrosive saltwater which  eats into the aluminum, which  means they are either scrapped  or completely rebuilt. As long as  the planes have been overhauled  there shouldn't be a problem, he  says.  According to Ministry of  Transport regulations, planes  must be fully inspected by an  engineer every 50 hours. Tyee  has one full-time engineer, and  more when the airline is busier.  There are also MOT guidelines for baggage and freight  loading, but it's never a precise  art, says Leekie. The actual  weight of the plane on takeoff  depends on the exact amount of  fuel it's carrying, and even the  size of Ihe passengers.In a lew  small companies, these kinds of  problems have not been helped  by deregulation in the industry.  A highly competitive environment has meant it's been harder  for some companies to meet  operational expenses, including  money which goes to costly  plane maintenance and salaries  for more experienced pilots.  "I don't think deregulation's  done any favours to this industry," says Leekie. "In Ihe long  run I don't think it's good for the  public."  In the vast majority of cases,  flying in a floatplane is statistically safer than driving a car, but  there's always an element of  unpredictability.  In its 32 years of operation  and over 100,000 hours of flying, Tyee has had only one fatal  incident. It happened about six  years ago when a plane carrying  the chief pilot and one passenger  crashed into the side of a mountain up Narrows Inlet. The plane  disintegrated leaving no evidence, and the besl explanation  of what happened is that the pilot  had a heart attack. "It was a good  day and a good airplane," recalls  Campbell. "Whatever it was happened in the cockpit of thai aircraft."  The results of Ihe investigation into the crash in Nanaimo  won't be known for about another six months. The weather  wasn't good, but it was "within  limits" says Campbell. If no specific malfunction or overloading  problem is discovered, says  Leekie, the crash was most likely  caused by a sudden downdraft  wind.  And sometimes there are no  explanations.  Unlike other professions,  which tend to close ranks when a  disaster occurs, pilots tend to be  unforgiving, says Leekie.  "There's an inner part of us  which says that can't happen to  me because I wouldn't make that  mistake. We tend to dissect these  ihings lo pieces trying to figure  out why there was an accident  because we don't want lo admit  to ourselves we're human too  and we could make the same  mistake."  ���  Lifeline connects old, infirm  to special emergency service  The Sunshine Coast Lifeline  is a service sponsored by the  Rotary Club of Sechelt. Over  200,000 people in the US and  Canada are using Lifeline to  enjoy more active, independent  lifestyles. Family members also  benefit from lifeline because  they have peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are not  alone.  Lifeline is simple and effective: a small button can be worn  around the neck, on a wrist  strap or attached to clothing.  Qualified medical personnel  receive your call and immediately attempt to make contact  with you. If assistance is needed, they will contact friends,  ambulance or police.  At the present time, 26 units  are oul on the Sunshine Coast  with a possible six more to  come. Calls are currently channelled through Comox Valley  emergency station and then  relayed back to Ihe Coast. The  cost is $30 per monlh. paid lo  the Comox Valley station.  This year the Rotary Club is  dealing only with special medical or aged subscribers, but it is  not ruling out expanding in the  future.  The Comox Valley unit  operates on a GO BC grant,  which supports one third of the  cost. The rest is made up from  donations and service clubs'  support. The Sunshine Coast  Lifeline Society has applied for  a GO BC grant hoping to defray  the costs of operation.  The service allows people  who may otherwise be taking  up a hospital bed to be in the  comfort of their own home. For  more information, 885-2965.

Coast News, February 10, l*il)J  17  leisure  Moses joyful stories illustrate  enduring power of spoken word  by Jan* Seyd  Johnny Moses sits on a stool  in the middle of the stage, his  long black hair shining under  the spotlight and his hands  moving in fluid punctuation to  the story of Bear Man and Ant  Lady. Beside him on the floor, a  drum - his only prop - stands up  against a table covered with a  cloth in a Native design. His  tongue clicks over the sounds of  the Noolka language.  Johnny Moses returned lo  the Raven's Cry Theatre last  Tuesday lo deliver his unique  Native storytelling performance. During the two-hour  show, his characters ranged  from the raspy voice of tlte Slug  Man and the bubbling Octopus  Lady to Ihe Bogy Woman,  while his messages involved  everything from serious comments on Native land claims lo  distinctly scatalogical humour.  Moses performance itself is a  hard one to figure. His fables  aren't what you might expect of  Native stories. For one thing,  Moses certainly plays up tlte  humourous side of the tradition,  wilh which Natives have  undoubtedly long been amusing  themselves in the face of ridiculous and uptight attempts to  preach and educate on the part  of white people.  The origin of some of these  stories - especially those involving the church - is especially  telling, given Moses' own background. Raised by his grandmother and grandfather on the  West Coast of Vancouver  Island, Moses was sent away lo  residential school for two years  when he was nine, where Indian  children were taught to recite  Hail Marys and forbidden to  speak their own language That  system did a lot of damage, says  Moses, and is part of the reason  he is now attempting to revive  the old languages in his storytelling, to give Native people,  and the communities around  them, a sense of where they  came from.  Moses' own grandfather was  an orator and peace-maker who  was often called upon to translate and speak at gatherings.  "We were raised with four languages in our house," he says.  Moses now speaks seven Native  languages - including Noolka,  Saanich, Cowichan, and Snohomish - many of which are  incorporated into his storytelling performance. To listen to  him speak these unfamiliar languages, and hear lite subtle differences between them, is both  fascinating and compelling.  Oral storytelling has, sadly,  become a rather unusual art  form in our age and culture.  And it's one which still seems a  little out of place in a formal  theatre with rows of receptive -  but not overly participative -  audience members. It's the type  of art which seems lo need a  more intimate and informal setting to be completely successful  - whatever the modern equivalent of the longhouse, the camp-  fire or the kitchen table is.  Oral storytelling can be a  powerful way to teach children,  says Moses, because it develops  imaginative processes and wilh  lhat, many different ways of  viewing Ihe world, which aren't  often found in market-driven,  ready-made scenarios offered  by Nintendo sets and Ninja tur-  Storvteller Johnny Moses  lie action figures.  For Native children particularly, Moses says, he wanteil to  offer something for them to lie  proud of. "There are so many  negative stereotypes," he says.  Moses' voice itself is hypnotic, his sense of laughter  refreshing, and his more serious  messages alternately cautionary  and joyful.  A unique pelormance for  anyone who relishes the power  of the spoken word.  joel Johnstone Dioto  Tourism training available  through Open Learning  I Love You  A Bunch  with the FTD'"  Hearts fc  Flowers��  Bouquet.

The courses are part of a  provincial initiative titled Program for the Tourism Professional. They are aimed at  individuals working in, or  preparing for, supervisory positions.  "The demand for well-  trained hospitality workers is  growing," says Fran Sainas,  OLA tourism program supervisor. "Although most jobs will  open up in traditional areas, the  industry is also creating more  salaried professional careers  with room for growth. Predictions are that 7,000 new managerial tourism jobs will appear  in B.C. within 10 years."  All seven supervisory courses relate directly to the tourism  industry, focus on the workplace and are designed for self-  paced study. Four are now  accepting registrations:  Tourism: An Industry Perspective, Computer Applications,  Marketing and Customer Service and Operational Controls.  These college-level courses  combine printed training materials, audio and video tapes,  computer conferencing and telephone tutor support. Individuals  learn by reading course materials, examining case studies, participating in workshops and  completing work-based assignments and tests.  Specialty programs in  accommodations and food and  beverage management are also  in development. All courses are  recognized by the Pacific Rim  Institute of Tourism as having  credit value toward membership  in the new Association of  Tourism Professionals.

Every child in  the community was welcome in  their home - and there were lots,  because most of us were young  marrieds just starling families  after the war.  I doubt there was a child to  whom she wasn't 'Auntie  Hazel', and over the years it had  been one of her great joys to lo  keep in touch with many of  them and watch their progress.  She was one of (hose people  who didn't just arrange community events, but also set tables  and prepared food.  For a number of years she  worked in the post office and,  as many remember, even if it  was disappointing not to have  any mail, you came away feeling good, warmed by Hazel's  ready smile and the opportunity  to pass the time of day with her.  I had come to Port Mellon  directly from England and  Hazel and Clarence were our  first neighbours. We couldn't  have been more fortunate.  Hazel heped me through the  frustrations of a new country  with differing values, always  understanding - even though  I'm sure she must have shaken  her head in bewilderment al the  small things which loomed so  lame for me.  7 doubt there was  a child to whom  she wasn 't Auntie  Hazel'  When Clarence retired, they  moved back to Birtle, Manitoba  and became much-loved members of that community, coming  out in the winter to visit their  families in Gibsons and Vancouver Island.  From the world's viewpoint,  I suppose she lived a quiet and  unspectacular life, but everyone  whose life she touched was the  better for having known her and  that seems to me to be the highest of accolades; she is one "for  whom the trumpets will have  sounded on Ihe other side."  Setting it straight  A story on the Gibsons pool last week contained an error in (he  estimated homeowner cost of proposed renovations - if the upgrading  is approved at a referendum lo he held this spring.  Based on a projected loan of $3(K),0()0, lite cost lo homeowners in  areas D, E, and F and Gibsons has been broken down to about $7 per  $100,(KK) of assessed value, not $I,(KK) as reported last week.  ,-Stj^       DMT1SH  jailSaV   DpotUMaiA  ItlK    V.H��i ���*"*��-  HI .  /-.Management  ������������ (commission  CMHcrtsCHL  Helping tu house Canadians  NON-PROFIT HOUSING PROGRAM  PROPOSED 1992 UNIT ALLOCATION  The British Columbia Housing Management Commission invites  Non-Profit sponsors to submit proposals for the design,  construction and management of housing for families or senior  citizens/older singles.

BC&     Canada Coasl News, February l (J, 1W2 14  spoils  Teens with sticks  'positive activity'  by Stuart lumsfde  Some 47 Gihsons youths  armed wilh slicks descended on  the Christian Life Assetnhly  Church (CLAC) last Tuesday  night, as they do every Tuesday  night...they go to play floor  hockey.  For the past three years the  (CLAC) has sponsored a floor  or hall hockey league (BHL)  that meets Tuesday nights for  three games of serious, non-  contaci sport.  The person responsible for  ihe effort and co-ordination of  Ihe league is Youth Pastor Jim  Morris. Morris told the Coasl  News the league consists of six  teams of seven players each.  The teams square off, two playing at 7 pm, two at 8 pin and  two at u pm. Morris said there  is a regular season .schedule of  I.I games per team followed by  play-offs that run through  February.  "The kids are aged 13  through 18," Morris said,  "which is basically grades 8-  12." According to Morris, considerable effort is made lo keep  the teams evenly balanced with  regard to player ability,  although consideration is also  given to which teams friends  ate playing on  To document a players  efforts, 'slats' are kept, much  like the NHL  "We keep track of their  goals, their assists, their penally  minutes, the games played, and  powei plays," Mortis said  He noted there was an  awards banquet after the playoffs during which trophies and  awards were handed oul to the  players  "What we do is provide a  positive influence for (ihe  teenagers) in the form of an  organized activity We try to  provide some fun for Ihe guys "  "The league has evolved  each year," Morris continued,  "It keeps gelling bigger." He  added thai two teams were  added lor this year and there  was talk that more expansion  would be needed for nexl year.  He said the next season  would start in September.

Elphinstone junior girls basketball action  Joel Johnstone pnoto  on the rocks  by Harry Turner  A little more about equipment this week Some pieces of equipment we take for granted are Ihe sheepskin, the drag and the measuring sticks. There are two types of measuring rods The measure used  most often is the one used to determine which of two stones is closest  to Ihe button when each is approximately an equal distance from the  centre of the house. This analog type measuring device runs along the  surface of the rock and measures by deflection in degrees.  The second type of measure is called a biter measure and it determines if a rock that is near the edge of the rings is actually on Ihe  rings. It is placed in the centre whole and is run along the edge of the  circles to see if it touches the stone.  A drag is a device used to take the heaviness form the ice when the  ice has not been used for many hours. This piece of equipment is  used hy loading it up wilt rocks and dragging it over the ice surface,  hence the name tlrag. When you pull the drag over the ice surface,  you clean off the frost build-up and knock the top off the pebble  which makes the ice much keener. It is a gotxl idea to use the drag if  you have new curlers on the ice since it makes the stones far easier to  throw in the early ends.  Tlte sheepskin is not really a sheepskin, hut is a synthetic product  which closely imitates a sheepskin and is used to clean the ice surface  after a game. It picks up lint, dirt, dust, broom straws and brush hairs.  After every game, this device should be used lo cleanse the ice surface  minor hockey  Fishing course on fly  Rockwood Centre is presenting noted fishing guide and fly-lying  ex|H'rt John Alvarez in a series ofe courses devoted to the satisfying  art of fly-fishing.  Alvarez has been fishing and tying flies for the past 30 years and  enjoys sharing his knowledge wilh others who have the same passion.  The first course will deal with the technique of tying the Hies, the  many materials used and tricks of the trade. The second session wil  show participants how to repair and maintain rods. This leads to the  construction of a custom-made rod. Once the weather hits warmed,  Ihe series will end wilh outdoor casting clinics.  To register or for more information, call Rockwood, 885-2522.

Neil htcente  Your phone call could keep the lights on.  Since trees are such an integral part of our environment, power outages caused by falling trees  and branches can never be completely eliminated.  However, you can assist in preventing a  significant number of these outages. First, by  making sure that trees and branches do not  contact your service lines (the wires that run from  the power line to your house); and secondly, by  notifying your local Hydro office of trees on your  property which pose an additional hazard to  nearby public power lines. Examples would  include trees with poor roots and diseased.  damaged or leaning trees. When you call. Hydro  will inspect the site and consult with you on the  appropriate action. If removal of the tree is agreed  upon to protect public power lines, Hydro will  pay the cost.  But please, don't take unnecessary risks by  working near live power lines. Call your local  Hydro office or a certified tree trimming company  for assistance.  By working together, we can enjoy the natural  beauty of our environment while minimizing the  potential for service interruptions.
