Array Lee over-ruled on Joint Use money  . I LEG ffeUTIVE LIBRA&-, 81.1,  V  | LEGISLATIVE LIBRA!?*.-. 81.1  ��� PARLIAMENT BUILD.liPfe.  M.VlMORIA, B.C.     *  V8V MM  0vel IV8V ~ 1 xV ,or Charles Lee>,he  Financ. .. ���, mc SCRD has voted to recommend to the  regional board that Davis Bay School be given priority for Joint  Use funding in 1981. Directors Stelck, Goddard and Hunter voted  in favour of the recommendation, made by Director Hunter at the  committee's meeting held in the regional board offices last  Thursday. Chairman and remaining committee member, Charles  Lee, abstained from the vote.  The vote followed debate during which the committee heard  from other Directors of the regional board, attending the meeting  in an ex officio capacity, residents of the Davis Bay area and  received from Sheila Page, representing the Davis Bay Parents  Auxiliary, a petition bearing sixty signatures endorsing the above  recommendation, originally made by the Joint Use of School  Facilities committee from which Director Lee resigned at the last  meeting of the regional board.  Once again, the concerns of the Joint Use of School Facilities  and the Joint Office Facilities committees were inextricably  linked. Director Lee, who has stated his opposition to both  projects until such time as his review of the board's finances is  complete, opened the finance committee meeting with a prepared  statement.  "I remind, I was elected to implement the will ofthe people and  generally watch out for their welfare, within the concept of the  regional board as representing the whole of the people, with the  additional limited authority for the 'autonomy' of Area C," Lee  stated, "Within this concept I cannot agree to recommend to the  Finance Committee, as Chairman, the continuance of the Joint  Use of Schools funding, having regard to more urgent priorities;  thc conviction of being used by the Education Ministry for  additional funding; our poor local tax base, and my stewardship  of the people's purse not permitting me to add to your tax burdens  and deficits."  Lee reminded the committee of his resignation from the  recreation commission "because the touted 'recreation package'  at $1,250,000 proved out at $2,500,000" and recommended  extreme caution.  "I'm against the use of our money for the Joint Office facility on  the grounds that the site is inadequate, the space would quickly  become insufficient, the P.R. stinks, and it is not compatible with  the readily attainable aspirations of the area."  Lee went on to outline a proposal of his own, discussed earlier  in the day at a Joint Office Facility meeting with Mayor Boucher  of Sechelt in attendance, which would see both joint use of school  facilities and joint office use eclipsed by a 'civic centre' in Sechelt  to house offices of all levels of government, with special provision  for a 'post-disaster core command' centre, and designed to  cope with auditorium activities, exhibitions and conventions. The  Centre would provide some 20,000 sq. ft. of space on three floors  and would cost approximately $800,000 over ten years at $128,000  per year.  "This is no more than we are now paying for Joint Use of  Schools," Lee stated, "In fact my initial computations indicate we  will probably be paying less, and have some money left over for  the very worthy persons who have come before us this past year  and been sent away empty-handed."  Mayor Boucher found the proposal "ahead of its time" and the  financial projections "too good to be true". The Mayor's  sentiments were echoed by members ofthe finance committee and  board Directors who sat in on the meeting.  "I'm from Missouri," said Director Hunter, "You'll have to  show me. You can't run $800,000 worth of building through me in  a half hour and tell me all the flguring's been worked out."  Mayor, Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons said, "I honestly don't  think the people in my area will go for what they will see as an  $800,000 luxury facility in Sechelt."  "I can't go to the people of Pender Harbour with this," Area A  Director Joe Harrison added, "They'll say, 'Joe, you're not  rowing with both oars.' You're talking about a centre in Sechelt  when what we need are facilities in outlying areas."  "There are advantages to the proposal," Director Harry  Almond observed, "But I don't think people will go for it. We've  tried to give something to every area and I disagree with this idea  that Joint Use of Schools constitutes a double school tax. The  School Board has merely pointed out to us wheie wc can spend  our recreation monies best. As far as I'm concerned we can  continue funding Joint Use of Schools."  Almond also pointed out that the Provincial Emergency  Program would be unlikely to agree to establish permanent  headquarters in Sechelt since, on the low lying isthmus, "a tidal  wave would swamp it." Sheila Page of the Davis Bay Parent  Auxiliary pointed out that school gymnasiums are being used to  deal with the recent Mt. St. Helens disaster, where a single  centralized facility might have been wiped out or isolated. Page  also pointed out that senior citizens perfer decentralized  neighbourhood facilities they can walk to at night.  Sechelt alderman Henry Hall, speaking from thc audience,  reminded the directots that. they, and thc editors of the  newspapers, had been invited to attend the presentation of a  graduating thesis in architecture entitled A Community Center for  Sechelt, by UBC architecture student Jarmie Kauppila on May  llth.  "Only 32 people showed up," Hall said, "To see what I thought  was a very interesting proposition. This architect had also taken  note of the fact that we have another level of government around  here, the Indian Band, and provided for facilities for them as  well." Hall said he is trying to arrange a repeat presentation ofthe  project in the Trail Bay Mall in the near future.  Director Ed Nicholson addressing the Finance Chairman said,  "What you propose is a bold and imaginative scheme. If it is ten  years ahead of it's time now, in ten years it will probably be too  late to do anything about it. 1 agree with Director Almond, it  wouldn't pass a referendum because of rampant parochialism. In  terms of allocating $ 100,000 of tax money for any project I think  we've reached thc point that we need some accountability. It's  time we went to a referendum. The public has never had an  opportunity to comment on the spending of these funds. I would  also point out that Director Stelck and Mayor Boucher must be  tired of these belaboured negotiations. I would like to see the  committee make a firm commitment to the Village of Sechelt."  "A referendum will take months," Director Almond said, "The  School Board needs an answer about Davis Bay this monlh. I  suggest wc go ahead with joint use funding at Davis Bay and  consider our alternatives for office space separately."  Thc committee then voted on Director Hunter's recommendation supporting the joint use funding of Davis Bay school  for 1981, and in favour of a further recommendation by Director  Goddard that the regional board be advised to proceed wilh Its  original plans lor a joint office facility of 8,000 sq. ft. over two  floors at a cost of $32,000 per year over ten years at the sewage  treatment site.

"It was an oversight, really," Mills said, "that I neglected to send  anyone else. Perhaps it was a fortunate one. since it prevented thc  meeting from becoming a confrontation between the School  Board and the committee. Thc committee heard from the people  directly.

May 27, 1980  Volume 34, Number 21  Wants local autonomy in writing  Harrison refuses to sign for borrowing  by John Moore  Last Thursday's meeting of the Public Utilities Committee of  the regional board developed into a confrontation between Area  A Director Joe Harrison and the other directors of the board over  the issue of regional autonomy in matters affecting area planning.  Director Harrison refused to sign recommendations that would  enable the regional board to increase its borrowing power and  obtain funds to take over the Sandy Hook and Tuwanek water  systems.  The confrontation arose out of a memo from regional board  Works Superintendent Gwx'jn Dixon concerning recent  problems with the Sandy Hook water system, which the board will  acquire in July. During discussion of Mr. Dixon's report, Director  Ed Nicholson produced a memo from board Secretary Larry  Jardine, indicating that funds would not be available with respect  to the Sandy Hook/Tuwanek system unless the board's  borrowing power is amended. The memo had been left on the  table from a previous in camera Executive Committee meeting.  Several directors examined the memo and PUC Chairman  David Hunter remarked that he did not consider the issue  appropriate for discussion by the Public Utilities Committee  Secretary Jardine explained that under the Municipal Act, the  signature of all directors are required to initiate the necessary  bylaws to amend the board's borrowing power and pointed out  that Director Harrison's signature is outstanding.  Area C Director Charles Lee inquired if it was the intention of  the Area A Director to deprive the people of Area C of water.  "Are you saying, 'Let them drink mud?" Lee demanded.  "This has nothing to do with Sandy Hook or Area C," Director  Harrison replied, "I had made this decision without knowing  when the next situation like this would arise. I'm doing this to  dramatize the issue of autonomy."  The PUC meeting adjourned to   to have been drifting away  In the course of those remarks  he pointed out that of all  current and possible functions  of a region, only planning is  recognized as a local prerogative, functioning through  an elected Director and an  appointed Advisory Planning  Commission, as set up under  the Municipal Act.  "Generally the SCRD has  been in the practice of accepting the APC recommendations at the regional level,"  Harrison stated in his remarks,  citing the Canoe Pass proposal  in 1977 and the Pope's Landing  proposal in the early '70's.  However, he went on to say  "Recently I have become increasingly concerned about the  tendency ofthe SCRD to treat  public expressions of concern  as annoyances to be circumvented rather than dealt with as  guiding directives."  Specifically, Harrison pointed to "the proposed Daniel  Point Park where the process of  local input is being studiously  avoided."  Reactions to Director Harrison's stand from the other  directors of the board were  uniformly negative. Director  Lorraine Goddard pointed out  that under the Municipal Act  the local APC is not an elected  body and has no power of  approval. Director Goddard  suggested that Area A consider  incorporation if it wishes to  retain power over the planning  function.  "I've never regarded any  expression of public opinion as  annoyance," Director Harry  Almond commented, pointing  out that the Roberts Creek  Settlement plan had recently  been accepted as policy by the  board in spite of the reservations and objections of some  directors.  "The Daniel Point question  would have been settled by  reasonable discussion," Almond said. "As far as I'm  Please turn lu Page Fifteen.

Director Harrison opened  the informal committee meeting by saying, "I find it very  distasteful to be put in a  position of being the person to  condemn anyone on the Sunshine Coast to drink mud. I had  decided to take this stand  regardless of the specific issue  on which our borrowing limit  had been reached.  "I'm concerned that we seem  from autonomy on planning.  The Sunshine Coast is made up  of small communities and it's  very important that local  residents retain some power  over local planning issues. I  had it graphically put to me  recently that if we cannot retain  this function at a local level, I  might as well go down to  Sechelt and 'widdle in the  wind'."  Director Harrison put before  the informal committee copies  of his remarks on the autonomy issue dated April 1980.  Gibsons refuses to fSave Howe Sound'  Gibsons Village Council  voted narrowly against supporting a West Vancouver-  based group's request for  support against the proposed  open-pit mine on Gambier  Island at their council meeting  held on May 20.  Alderman Larry Trainor  spoke first on the motion  and urged that the Gibsons  Council should request both  senior levels of government to  support the Save Howe Sound  Society, "They can go a little  farther and find the same  minerals," said Trainor.  Alderman Stuart Metcalfe  argued that it was possible,  with proper controls to have  industry as well as fishing and  recreation. "I would be very  hesitant to vote in . favour  of this1 resolution," said  Metcalfe.  Alderman Larry Labonte  agreed with Metcalfe, pointing out that the industry  already in Howe Sound was  spending millions to lessen  their impact on the environment. "I have been pushed to  support the Save Howe Sound  Society," said Labonte, "but  I just can't."  Mayor Lorraine Goddard  relinquished the gavel and  expressed her opposition to  the request tor support forcibly.  "This is another instance,"  said the mayor, "where  protest groups have not  bothered to get all the facts."  Mayor Goddard said that at a  recent meeting of the Area F  residents which she attended  as a property owner in the  area, Elspeth Armstrong of  Gambier Island admitted that  she did not know what the  20th Century Energy Corporation was planning on  Gambier Island. Goddard further stated that another  concern of the  Save  Howe  Sound Society, that a petrochemical and tanker port  was planned for Britannia  Beach, was nothing but a  'rumour'.  "Strip mining on Texada  Island has not affected fishing  and recreational activity in  that area," said the mayor.  "For too many years the  people of this area have  watched their children being  forced to leave the area to  find employment."  Alderman Metcalfe chimed  in that "People using Gambier  Island for two weeks of the  year were endangering thc  future of local young people.''  The voting on the matter  went to a 2-2 tie with Fitchett  and Trainor in favour of  supporting the Save Howe  Sound Society and Labonte  and Metcalfe opposed. Mayor  Goddard declared the motion  of support defeated for want  of a majority.  Four of the participating grannies in the Kiwanis Gran EThon held last Sunday.

Distributed Free to all addresses on the Sunshine Coast  A comedy show  "\ I  The longest-running comedy show on  the Sunshine Coast is without question the  issue of the so-called Joint Office Facility.  Some time ago, it seems like years, it was  conceived, with thc Sechell Council in  inadequate quarters, the Regional Board  renting and coming to the end of its lease,  and thc School Board doing a classic  bureaucratic bulging at the seams, that  there should be a grand new building to  house all of these various mini- governments located 'centrally' in Sechelt.  Howls of rage went up immediately and  predictably from the village of Gibsons at  the projected move ofthe School Board to  the other municipality but with jut-jawed  resolution our elected bodies pressed on  with their project.  If memory serves well, originally there  was talk of moving unused portables from  Pender Harbour to Chatelech grounds for  the new building but that was only a brief  phase. Soon every developer in Sechelt  seemed to be battling for the right to sell  land to the local governments for their  Joint Office Facility. In those days of clear-  eyed resolution on the part of our elected,  Director David Hunter publicly teased the  newspapers for confusing the Joint Office  Facility with the Joint Use of Schools  endeavour. It is only recently we learn that  the Regional Board themselves had the two  confused and were sending the wrong  people to the meetings held to deliberate  these weighty matters.  But long before these revelations the  Joint Office Facility project was running  into difficulties. Sechelt sold their  Municipal Office and then learned that  price of the land they had intended to buy  for the joint building had mysteriously  doubled. On again and off again went the  project, the twists and turns too difficult  for anyone to know really what was  happening and certainly too complex for  the memory to untangle.  The School Board wearied first and  opted to accept, no refuse, and then again  accept, the blandishments of thc village of  Gibsons.  Now there were two little governments  and the Sechelt Council which had set a  torrid pace of obfuscation and confusion  went into a quiescent phase, became a  passive waiter, and the Regional Board  stepped forward to do their turn.  They would build an office for  themselves and Sechelt on the sewage  treatment plant site - no jokes please. Then  there came a group to suggest a more  centrallylocatedbuildingwithinSechelt.lt  was turned down, then perhaps it was  going to be accepted, and then it was  turned down again. At last the joint office  was definitely going to be where the sewage  meets its appropriate treatment.  There was some question as to whether  they could afford it after all, though they  could re-negotiate with Victoria since their  rent had doubled since first they negotiated  - due to the fact that they could not  guarantee a lengthy lease.  Finally, Director Lee forever and  inextricably combines the joint office with  the joint use and says a plague on both  their houses.  The rest of the directors, grown  desperate for resolution, can bring  themselves to see no merit in Lee's  proposals and it's back to the treatment  site once again.  As it stands at the moment the new  facility will be on Regional Board property  on the site of the sewage treatment plant  but next week who knows?  Chairman Ed Nicholson, itching to be  off, is resolutely in support of both  Director Lee and the Joint Office Facility  and Joint Use of schools, and apparently  just about everything else and the Board  blunders on. In a way it is unfortunate that  the three governments are not going to be  in the same building. Their attempts to  resolve who was going to use the common  board room and when, might have kept us  all entertained for years.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The School Board granted full pay to  Elphinstone teachers George Matthews and John Burnside, who claimed  they were unfairly deducted $105 for  participating in the Driftwood Players  childrens-theatre production of "Alla-  din," during school hours.  In reply to a Vancouver Sun article  suggesting that the Department of  Education "recycles faulty merchandise back into the system", local  School Board Trustees emphatically  stated that newly hired superintendant  John Denley is definitely not considered faulty merchandise.  TEN YEARS AGO  In a letter to the Gibsons Council, the  Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society urges that the regional  board undertake to obtain letters  patent covering sewage disposal. The  letter also urges that a sewage disposal  study covering the whole coast be  carried out and a ten year plan  formulated.  This weekend in the Gibsons Elementary School hall, the Driftwood  Players will present the last local  production of their award-winning  performance of Harold Pinter's play  The Lover.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek Community Hall  marked its Thirty-First Anniversary  over Ihe May 24th weekend, the Coast  News also carried a eulogy for F.W.  Downes, whose recent death at 92 took  from Roberts Creek another of its early  residents.  At the last Kiwanis meeting it was  reported that $900 had already been  spent on clearing and burning at  Brothers Memorial Park, development  of which has been undertaken as a club  project.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  A 25 ft. B.C. cedar log leaves the  coast to begin a career in art that that  will take it to Ontario, and eventually to  the University of Michigan. Ellen Neel,  prominent Kwakiutl artist, will go to the  Stratford Shakespearean Festival to  begin a carving session that will result  in a 22 ft. totem pole for export.   $6,100 has been donated to the  Sechelt Disaster Fund in aid of the  families of six fathers who were  drowned in Sechelt Inlet on the  evening of April 13.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Empire Day weekend found many  holiday makers formed in long lines  waiting to get their cars onto a ferry. In  spite of the extra ferry, the George S.  Pearson, brought into service by the  Blackball Lines, as many as 146 cars  were strung along Gibsons streets at  one time.  The Coast News publishes the first in  a series of articles concerning the  findings of the Incorporation Committee of the Sechelt Board of Trade, who  have for some years been investigating  some form of municipal organization  for the Sechelt area.  Coast News editorials pointed out  that the Sunshine Coast is due for a  period of expansion and urge that  some form of planning be undertaken  for the expansion of services to the  area.  Five acres of nice view property on  Gower Road were selling for $795 and  lots in the Headlands area were going  for $350 on easy terms.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Municipal Clerk Robert Burns opened the new Shell Gas station in  Gibsons, operated by popular Jules  Schutz. John Theed, speaking as  President of the Board of Trade,  pointed to the structure as being a  foiward step in the building of the  peninsula and a tribute to the Shell Oil  Company for initiative and belief in the  coming years.  Effective as of today, Monday, the  well known Lady Rose will be withdrawn from the Gibsons run, leaving  only one line of communication with  the mainland from here. The Board of  Trade protested the withdrawal and  urged James Sinclair, MP, to intercede  with the Minister of Transport in order  to speed up the rumoured amendments to the fire regulations, quoted as  being the main reason for the withdrawal.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  By no stretch of imagination, I think, could I be said  to have been obsessed with  the volcanic eruption which  took place on Sunday, May 16,  in Washington State just to  the south of us.  To begin with and paradoxically perhaps, production day  at a newspaper leaves little  time for being concerned with  the events of the outside  world. There was no time for  tuning into the radio or turning on a television set to follow  the dramatic happenings  nearby. I discovered at noon  when a friend came into the  office for a visit that the  volcano had erupted in grand  style and that the explosion I  had heard and felt just about  breakfast time on Sunday in  Roberts Creek had in all  probability been the volcano  which was also reported being  felt in Gibsons and North  Vancouver to my certain  knowledge.  At the beginning of last  week, with another paper  behind us I heard second-hand  reports from friends who had  been glued to their television  sets. I read, in rather desultory fashion, the newspaper  reports and saw a couple of  American newscasts on the  subject, finally, myself.  I think you'll agree that my  involvement with the story of  the eruption of Mount St.  Helen's was minimal, not  quite as minimal as the  geniuses in charge of the  CBC newsroom in Toronto  who on the night of the day  that the mountain blew up  contrived to give the nation a  featured story on the difficulties of house buying in  Toronto, but minimal nonetheless.  I had rather the relationship  with the eruption that I had  with the Anchorage earthquake in 1954. I was one of a  male gathering in a house  in Dawson City held to honour  the upcoming nuptials between a teacher and a nurse  and late at night you could get  the Anchorage radio station  clearly and our party ended up  listening to the eye-witness  accounts of the Anchorage  disaster broadcase by a hysterical and semi-coherent radio announcer in that city.  In a way, however, I was  closer to this latest manifestation of the power of the  lurking instability ofthe earth.  1 felt the explosion. The  windows shook in my house. A  mountain blew up a couple of  hundred miles away and the  windows shook in my house.  1 wonder how many other  people felt the blast locally  and meditated a little on  potential explosions of the  man-made kind. I know that  on the north coast of Washington State, much closer than  Mount St. Helens, there is the  Trident submarine base complete with missiles designed  to attack and therefore prime  targets themselves. I know,  too, that there are nuclear  submarines slipping in and  out of the waters around  Nanaimo  and   it   all   seems  Slings & Arnows >^  fSeorge Matthews  much too close for comfort.  I must admit, also, to a  horrified fascination with the  way those in control of our  fates are beginning to speak  about the use of nuclear  weapons. A few years ago I  noted the arrival in the  language of the phrase "nuclear thinkability", which apparently meant that the use of  nuclear weapons had become  a serious consideration. Just  recently 1 came across another  beauty. "Nuclear catharsis". I  invite you to consider that one  for a moment. According to  the copy of Webster's Dictionary that I have here the  word "catharsis" means a  purging especially of the  bowels or a relieving of the  emotions as through the arts  of psycho-therapy.  Nuclear catharsis, then,  seems to move the use of the  ultimate weapons from being  just thinkable to being something downright good for us  all.  What 1 cannot understand  is the ostentatious concern for  human life which is displayed  at the time of a natural  tragedy. In solemn tones the  television announcer tells us  that the death toll has reached  twelve and that seventy-five  more are unaccounted for.  Menacing army helicopters  are pictured arriving and  taking off on mercy missions.  One remembers involuntarily  the scene in Apocalypse  Now when the same helicopters flew in on another  mission. The President tours  They say that no news is  good news and from my  experience keeping up with  the news for thirty years it  is equally true that good news  is no news.  Take last week for example.  There was the Quebec Referendum on Tuesday. Thousands of journalists from all  over the world hunched in  tattered trench coats in front  of television sets in eager  anticipation of the beginnings  of the end of Canada. They  wrote miles of copy to feed  the suspense and anticipation  of the masses. It wouldn't  have been any fun if people  didn't think there was a  possibility of constitutional  disaster.  By Wednesday when the  overwhelming vote supported  the federal point of view  the newsmen skulked off in  bitter disappointment to look  for mine disasters, volcanoes,  insurrections, plagues or,  at the very least, a little  pestilence.  By Thursday, of course,  everybody was so bored with  Quebec that you couldn't  have sold a story about the  place unless the St. Lawrence  had flooded its banks and  destroyed Montreal. Of course  had the other side won the  scribes could have had a  wonderful time hovering over  the Canadian corpse picking  the pieces for months. Alas,  it was not so. Happy endings  don't make good copy and  good news is no news.  Fortunately for the necro-  philes of the newsroom  there were plenty of other  disasters to occupy their  attention. There was Mt. St.  Helens where people were  actually killed. One gruesome  correspondent wrote enthusiastically about how many  victims would never be found  because they were "vaporized" or "disintegrated" or  sucked down into the muck  and disappeared from the face  of the earth.  Once people knew about the  deaths, the opportunity remained to make the most of  those who were unaccounted  for, some seventy at last  estimate. It seemed at first  that this number may dwindle  when some survivors were  located and the lack of enthusiasm of stories recounting  rescues betrayed the notion  that if the number of the  missing declined any further  the media would lose interest.  Once the victims were  I numbered and the missing  known about, the. destruction  'caused by the volcanic ash  became the next source of  [interest. Hundreds of poor  souls buried up to their back  'yards in dust were observed  Delight in Disorder  and described and some  journalists raised the possibility that the dust could  invade the lungs of babies, or  grannies or even cattle and  cause them all some damage. I  The volcano was not the  only disaster gleefully recounted by the press. There  were riots in Miami where  vivid accounts of mutilations,  murder, mayhem, slaughter  and even a decapitation or  two enlivened the front pages.  There was a fire in an elderly  people's home in Jamaica  that killed at least 160 poor old  ladies.  Then Quebec got back in the  news with a mine disaster  of sufficient magnitude to  warrant a renewed interest in  that province. Mine disasters  make great copy, particularly,  if it takes days to dig out the,  victims. A photo or two of the.  grieving families is always a  heart grabber and can keep an  enterprising newsman on the  story for days on end, com-:  plete with expense account.  A clever reporter can keep a  good mine disaster story going  for weeks and get enough out  of it for a book at the end of it.  all, particularly if he knows he  has to cover city hall when the  story finally dies.  As if all these disasters  weren't enough, there was a  movie on prime time last week  which covered all the disasters  of the past few years we would  rather forget about. The title  of the film, significantly, was  "13 Great Disasters". It was  difficult to escape the notion  that the movie was promoting  public interest in disasters,  something like movies about  baseball players before the  World Series promote the  game or movies about dying  football players in the fall  assure Howard Cosell of a  good audience for Monday  Night Football.  There were so many disasters last week that there  were hardly enough reporters  around to cover the mini-  disasters like Ronald Reagan  wrapping up the Republican  nomination or the incipient  crop failure on the prairies.  While there was plenty of time  to examine all of the little  towns threatened by forest  fires, not much attention was  paid to the plight of the pig  farmer or the disastrous  year in the auto industry. I  suppose those kinds of stories  can wait until things get bad  enough to qualify them as  disasters and therefore worthy  of media interest. But with all  of the real, imagined and  anticipated disasters coming  up this season one thing is  for sure; we won't have to be  exposed to much good news.

And yet lurking in the background is the knowledge  that phrases like "nuclear  thinkability" and "nuclear  catharsis" exist.

Letters to the Editor  Biologist speaks out on marsh  Coast News Mav ^/   imqu  Editor:  - In the past two years, I  have had the opportunity to  spend some time on the  Sunshine Coast in the capacity  of a biological consultant.  During this time, I have had  occasion to frequent the  Sechelt marsh area currently  under consideration for development purposes. As representatives of the Marsh  Society have stated, and  contrary to the opinion of  Alderman Brian Stelck, the  bayhead area represents a  remarkably productive wildlife habitat and supports  throughout the year a diverse  wildfowl population.  Perhaps unfortunately,  these birds are least visible  during the summer season.  (It is true that a population of  domesticated ducks exists  in the pond area to the west  of Wharf Road but it is not this  of which I speak.) Approximately 30 species of native  waterfowl have been known to  frequent this area and many of  these regularly use the marsh  as foraging and wintering  areas. As well, the mudflats  are a primary feeding area for  a local population of Great  Blue Heron. In addition, one  will find numerous other bird  species, such as shorebirds  and raptors, associated with a  marsh area of this type.  A tidal marsh, such as the one  in Sechelt, often acts as a  rearing ground for young  salmonids in addition to other  fish species such as Lingcod  and various flounder species.  It is the mud (read "smelly  muck") and detritus which  supports the invertebrate  faunal elements which form  the base of the food chain  in the marsh community.  One finds that clean sand such  as that found on public  beaches, is amazingly sterile  and almost completely devoid  of any life (except human)  whatsoever. Removal of the  mud would in all probability  result in a loss of much of  the native waterfowl population.  The suggestion to use this  area as a community beach  will upon critical examination  appear to be somewhat  dubious. The prevailing tidal  conditions in Sechelt Inlet  result in the head of Porpoise  Bay being little more than a  stagnant backwater. With the  current rate of development, it  will not be long before the  water quality in the area  declines to a level unsuitable  for swimming. A simpler  solution for providing a safe  swimming area for the local  children would be to construct  a concrete basin and fill it  with water, and should one  want to swim for say more  than three months a year, put  a roof on it. Certainly, there is  no lack of alternative swimming sites in close proximity  to Sechelt. As well, construction of a pool is a far  simpler matter than construction of wildlife habitat.  Before any decisions on this  matter are arrived at, there  should be careful consideration of the entire situation  at hand. One must balance  the needs of people with  environmental considerations.  One might look to use the  unique attributes of the area  in question in a development  proposal which would benefit  the local community. The area  has been shown to be quite  resilient in the past with the  establishment of a seaplane  base nearby thus allowing the  possibility of some form of  compromise.  In conclusion, one should  note that the situation facing  Sechelt is by no means  unique. There is a finite  quantity of marsh area on the  west coast of North America  and it is rapidly vanishing.  The importance of these areas  has only recently come to light  in terms of the maintenance  of economically important  fish and bird species, thus  due care is called for in  the management of these  areas.  Sincerely yours,  L. Scott Forbes  The point of view of Charles Lee  Editor:  As the newspapers were not  present at the afternoon meeting of the Joint Office Committee, and in answer to the  phone and personal quizzing  going on, and the school board  inextricably mixing the Joint  Office and Joint School financing question, I draw  attention:  I proposed a carefully researched plan to build a civic  centre, of 20,000 sq. ft. on two  and a half acres, to contain a  cultural auditorium cum recreation area, offices for board,  village, and other government  bodies; the grounds to contain  bowling greens, tennis courts, a  plaza for outdoor theatre and  musical enjoyment, accommodation for trade and convention events. To especially  house the vital PEP and post  disaster centre. To cost over 15  years no more than the amount  currently being spent on joint  use of schools, with an annual  surplus returned to the people  of $120,000 for pressing recreational and human needs to  which we have had to say no.  No. Ad nauseum.  The reception given the plan  ranged from His Worship  Mayor Boucher's "You are ten  years ahead of your time", "I  can't believe the figures". "It  won't work." "It would take  away taxable land." "lt will take  years to build."to, the people  won't go for it and so on. It was  obviously considered a huge  joke and dismissed in favour of  a Joint Office facility, which  even before building has incipient signs of becoming  quickly inadequate. I suggested  a referendum, but was turned  down. The sewer plant site is  the subject of ribald humour,  thc net effect being to bring two  government bodies into contumely and contempt, probably more than the "canal  project" upon which I have  something to say later.  Chairman Ed Nicholson  "may his tribe increase" said it  best. "Charles may be ten years  ahead of his time, but in ten  years it will be too late". I  remind that Canada was not  built by people afraid to look  Up the road, or by exercises in  stultifying municipal mum-  blypeg. I also remind the  citizens that in my opinion we  have been wilfully denied the  opportunity to examine, and  evaluate this once in a lifetime  chance to wisely spend our  money in a fashion fit to  enhance our twentieth century  status, where something worthwhile is available to draw  dollars into the area, to give our  citizens the facility of protection, aid and comfort in  disaster, and to draw upon the  fabulous reserve of brilliant  and talented folk resident on  this coast, who currently want  no part of our municipal field.  I, as a citizen, recommend  the school boards to stick out  their necks, especially those  fabulously paid seniors, and  go to bat with those capital  curmugeons in Victoria, to  release adequate funds from  their miserly mounting money  mountain, to adequately build  the joint facilities thought to be  required. The rascals have  more   than   enough   of our  money squirreled away. The  grass roots taxpayers are  reputedly the highest taxed in  the western world.  Thc net position is we arc  faced with $20,000 a year for  properly required municipal  body parking space. The village  and regional board in my  opinion, came up with an  incredible display of parochial,  negative antecleluvianism, later  kicking Joe Harrison's butt for  his audacity in suggesting a  form of autonomy.  One could either die of  despair, or treat it all as one  humourous ongoing experience, I will have to chose the  latter, if we can't do better than  this, my Mom would'Have said  "It is enough to make a cat  laugh."  Sincerely,  Charles Lee  Thank you, Mr. Corrance  Editor:  Thank you and Ian Corrance  for the short article and  pictures of our Chum Salmon  Incubator Tank at Oulette  Creek. For the record however  we would like to mention that  this project was undertaken by  L & K with the help of the  BCIT students under the  guidance of Dr. Chuck Chestnut. L & K supplied the  materials, the board and lodging for the students and the  continuing care of the project  over the incubation period. Dr.  Chestnut and students looked  after the stripping, fertilizing  and placing of the salmon roe  in thc boxes.  Chum Salmon were selected  for this project because alter  hatching they move directly to  thc tidal estuary rather than  spending their  first  year in  creek. Coho however so spend  their first year in fresh water  and it was felt that natural  spawning would provide sufficient coho fry for a creek the  size of Oulette.  We might add that to this  date approximately 40,000 fry  have been hatched out of the  48,000 eggs placed in the box.

'.lesus, punk" he complained at  noon "can't you shorten up on  those goddamn signals? I'm  going deaf from that racket!"  Hut he voiced his gripe good-  naturedly for it was an easygoing crew. That afternoon, the  hooktender stayed with Dave  .ind showed him how to work  the bug (or manual-trans-  mitter) properly.  "That hooker was an ex-  circus-barker���a hell of a good  guy. Always looked out for the  crew and me in particular. One  day, it was blowing like a  bastard. There was a tree that  had been left for a spar but  never used. It was sitting on a  logged-off shoulder all by itself,  shaking in the wind. Of course,  I was green as grass. I was  standing right in the path ofthe  damn thing if it ever came  down. The hooker pointed this  out and I moved to a safer spot.  Sure enough, there was a real  strong gust. Over she went and  hit like a ton of bricks right  where I'd been set-up."  "When the weather got  snowy and miserable, He'd go  from man to man, cracking  jokes and keeping up our  morale. Sometimes at noon,  he'd climb up on a stump and  go into his circus-barker spiel  to give thc boys a few laughs.  I low did it go? 'Over here we  have the Royal Bengal Tiger. 26  stripes in all go round his body  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  886-7454  "Uadtr th. Orttn Canopy"  f 1*1 ��� CMUr PI��M  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  and three around his ass. To my  right we have the Foo Foo bird  who makes his lofty abode in  the banyan tree.' Something  like that anyhow. He was a real  barker. When he got going, he  could make you imagine there  was a whole carnival behind  him!"  After a month, Dave's chum  quit. He was unhooking logs on  a very steep show and claimed  that half the time, thc snow was  blowing right up his pantlegs.  Dave decided to tough her  through till Christmas. "Hell, it  was the best job I'd ever had.  They treated me real good. The  bunkhouses weren't any hell-  six men to each room with a  stove in the middle���but the  grub was fine."  "It was just after the War and  I guess things were pretty tough  in the East. They were shipping  out Newfies and herring-  chokers by the car-load to work  in the Bush. I don't think some  of those guys had eaten a  square meal in their lives. Well,  you know how those camp  cookhouses were. They used to  load the tables until they bent.  They guys from the East went  crazy at the sight of all that  grub. They scoffed everything  that wasn't nailed down. I  guess their stomachs weren't  accustomed to it and a lot of  them developed ulcers after a  month or so. Ate their way  right into the hospital!"  Dave stayed at Copper  Canyon until the camp closed  in mid-December. The monotony of bunkhouse life was  broken every couple of weeks  by booze-junkets to Nanaimo  to let off steam. Finally Dave  was heading for Vancouver  with the rest of them, his first  stake in his pocket. He had  weathered his initial camp.  After the winter festivities  were o\er and all the hard-  earned money had been predictably blown, Dave hired-out  again with several friends, this  time to Salmon River, further  up-lsland. By now, he pretty  much knew the ropes as far as  blowing-whistles went. The  hooktender on this job was a  man of about 60, no comedian  like thc circus barker but  congenial enough. One day a  new rigging-slingcr (a straw-  boss for the choker-setters who  picked out the logs to be taken)  came overt ijoin their crew. He  was young, cocky and overly-  ambitious���a highball merchant from the word go. Thc  old hooker watched his reckless  antics dubiously. "You keep an  eye on that joker, punk" he said  to Dave. "He's too damn log-  hungry. Sooner or later, he's  going to make a mistake."  Dave watched the new man  like a hawk as he ran in an out  of each .log-turn, driving his  chokermen relentlessly. "Sure  as hell, before the day was out,  that rigging-slingcr made a  real blunder. Two of his  chokermen had hooked on to a  skinny boomstick that was  poking out of the brush like a  gun-barrel. They'd lassoed it  and the guy underneath was  sliding the choker back so's it  would tighten up without  coming off. He was still under  the turn when the rigging-  slinger ran out and, without  making a proper check, gave  me the go-ahead. Luckily, I had  a clear view ofthe whole scene.  I hollered back that he still had  a man who wasn't clear. The  chokerman came barrelling out  of there, white as a sheet. The  rigging-slingcr looked pretty  scared too. He eased up on the  highballing, after that."  Dave worked on through  various camps, perfecting his  trade. "I used to whittle those  wooden bugs down until they  fitted my hand perfectly. Then  I'd tape them down until the  points were damn near touching. You could really bang out  some snappy whistles that way.  Some   punks    never   moved  unless they had to but I used to  follow the rigging-crew as  closely as I could. Always  packed lots of whistle-wire. I  liked to see what the hell was  going on. It was the only job I  could do and I took a lot of  pride in doing it right."  Danger in the Woods sometimes came from totally unexpected sources. Dave recalls a  particularly bizarre yarn he  heard in one outfit. It had  apparently taken place at the  same camp, a few months  before. "Seems there was a  third-loader working on one of  the trackside machines, a big,  sort-of slow-witted kid. Third-  loading like punk-whistles, was  one of the bottom jobs in the  Woods. Pretty well all you had  to do was stamp the ends ofthe  logs. Well, like I say, this guy  was pretty dense and it was a  pretty mean crew. They took to  playing jokes on thc kid and  generally making his life miserable. He suffered in silence  for a long time but one day,  they went too far. Some wise  guy stole the kid's lunch-  bucket, threw the kid's sandwiches and actually took a  dump in it. When he opened it  at noon, they all laughed like  hell."  "It was a pretty mean trick  but the kid still said nothing.  He showed up to work the next  day, as usual. The loading-crew  had a habit of sitting on a big  brow-log to eat their lunch.  Noontime rolled around and  they perched themselves on the  log. Suddenly the kid appeared  around the side of the donkey  with a bloody rifle he must have  smuggled up in the crummy.  Well, he opened up on those  guys and blew them off the log  one by one like a bunch of clay  ducks in a shooting gallery.  Think he killed one and  wounded the rest. Turned out  the kid was crazy as a bed-bug  and he ended up back in the  funny-farm for life. But it sure  put a stop to the practicaljokes  around that layout for a-  while!"

Additional  VLASSIFIED ADS Off the shelf  by John Moore  The 12th century Bestiary  calls Draco the Dragon the  "largest of all serpents... When  this dragon has come out of its  cave, it is often carried into the  sky, and the air near it becomes  ardent." No creature makes  more appearances in the myths,  legends and fairy tales of the  world than the dragon.  In thefolklore of Europe, the  dragon became a highly developed character; living in a cave  where it slept on a treasure-  hoard of gold. It was thought lo  possess precious jewels inside  its skull. The dragon was  credited with great wisdom,  even with thc power of speech.  When aroused, it emerged from  its lair to terrorize the countryside from the air with its fiery  breath. Its blood was caustic,  disintegrating weapons with  which it was struck. It could be  appeased with occasional offerings of its favourite food, thc  tender flesh of maidens of good  breeding.  But in spite of its flight and  fire, the dragon was by no  means invincible. Numerous  tales record the slaying of these  enormous and eccentric reptiles by single men employing a  variety of stratagems. The  paradox of all dragon lore, of  course, has been the fact that  while most legends have at least  some remotely recognizable  basis in fact, no fossil record of  the existence of dragons has  ever been found to support the  tales.  Anthropologists and psychologists, churchmen and  biologists have traditionally  characterized the dragon as a  symbol, a purely mythological  "bump in the night" beastie  part sky-god, part goblin, who  could never have existed as  described. With the discovery  of the Kimodo "dragons", a  large species of lizard living on  a single island in the Far East,  scientists suggested that the  dragons myths may have  stemmed from a hypothetical  time in which such reptiles were  more widespread, but no one  has seriously given credence to  the dragons vaunted wisdom,  fire-breathing, his golden  hoard and gems, or his predilic-  tion for princesses on the menu.  No one, that is, except Peter  Dickinson. A number of books  published recently have dealt  with the evolution of the  dragon as a symbol or subject  of works of art. In his book The  Flight of Dragons (Fitzhenry &  Whiteside Ltd. 1979 $19.95)  Dickinson takes the dragon by  the tail and considers the  possibilities that such creatures  could have existed.  "I am not going to prove that  ninety-foot lizards once floated  in the skies of earth and  scorched whole villages with  plumes of flame, because I  don't think it can be proved,"  Dickinson says in his introduction, "But I can put together a coherent theory which  is at least as probable as the  theory that dragons are completely legendary."  Starting with the sound  Darwinian premise that survival depends on a creature's  ability to specialize and to  adapt. Dickinson gives a  fascinating hypothetical account of the specialization that  could have permitted such a  creature to exist and the  eventual failure to adapt that  could account for its extinction.  Dickinson points out that  the idea of a flying reptile is by  no means far-fetched; birds, in  fact, evolved from the earlier  prototype flying dinosaurs, the  pterosaurs. Small soaring lizards still bear the name of their  "legendary"   ancestor,  the  dragon. Dickinson approaches  the problem of dragonflight  from a novel angle; the traditional approach being to  assume that the dragon's bulk  poses an insurmountable bar-  4 rier to flight. Dickinson takes  the position that the dragon  could only fly because it was so  big.  Dickson supposes that dragons could fly because most of  their bodies were hollow, filled  with a lighter than air gas. The  body had to be enormous to  hold enough gas to lift the total  weight of the beast. The  dragon's fiery breath thus  becomes a vital part of the  chemical processes occuring  inside the dragon-body, highly  volatile processes which account for the dragon's bursting  into flame when properly  attacked, as recorded in ancient  chronicles, and also account  for the dragon's caustic blood  and the fact that no dragon  remains have ever been found;  upon the death of the dragon,  the remains are totally decomposed by their own corrosive chemistry.  Dickinson's theory that the  dragon was actually an enormous living gas-bag, also  resolves the problem of the  inadequate wings most illustrators have assigned to the  creature. The problem of lift  having been solved, smaller  wings would be quite adequate  for manoeuvring and propulsion.  Dickinson points to the  existence of hydrochloric acid,  common to the digestive systems of most animals, and  calcium, common to the bone  structure of most creatures, as  two necessary elements for the  creation of hydrogen. The  dragon would also have to take  in, since its survival depended  on being able to erode it's own  bone structure to produce  hydrogen, considerable a-  mounts of raw mineral. This  Dickinson suggests, accounts  for the dragon-jewels; the  jewels were not kept in the  dragons head but in a kind of  crop, like a bird's, and used for  grinding up rock.  As for dragon-wisdom and  dragon-speech, Dickinson  points out that a number of  reptiles, snakes in particular,  are credited with a hypnotic  stare which paralyses their  victims and makes them appear  to be accomplices in their own  destruction. The dragon, despite its ferocious aspect, had  only limited defenses; its  cumbersome flight, pestilential  breath and hypnotic stare. It  was vulnerable, particularly to  pointed weapons like arrows,  lances and swords. This explains the penchant for Parboiled Princess. If young men  had been sacrificed to the  dragon, or even village girls of  low breeding and common  sense, it might have occurred to  them to fight back, possibly  with a pointed stick or sharp  rock, negating the whole point  of the sacrifice.  The corrosive slime exuded  by dragons, often alluded to in  ancient chronicles, would require insulation if it were not to  foul the dragons own lair and  thus Dickinson accounts for  the hoard of gold on which the  dragon sleeps. According to the  theory, only male dragons flew  breathed fire and lived in high  mountain passes and caves; the  females inhabited bogs and  fens, where they laid their eggs,  and this explains why there are  no dragons today. Competition  for survival in these areas,  combined with the gradual  dominion of man over the  waste places of the earth, and  the dragon's own antiquated  reptilian breeding processes  resulted in its extinction.  You don't have to believe  Dickinson's theory to enjoy the  book. He admits that his theory  according to its own premises  can never be proved. Still, he  does include a map of all the  dragon sightings recorded in  ancient Britain and if you're  among the crags in Scotland,  North-umbria or Wales you  might sniff around in an  unlikely looking cave or two.  You just never know. All for  now.  Youth orchestra  to visit coast  The Long Island Youth  Symphony is to visit the  Sunshine Coast for three days  in July after having spent a  few days in Vancouver as  guests ofthe Vancouver Youth  Symphony Orchestra.  The visit here, made possible by the Festival Concert  Society, is being co-ordinated  by Allan Crane of the Coast  News, Financial assistance  has been received to date from  School District #46, the  Division of Continuing Education, and the Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation. Other  organizations will be approached for financial assistance to provide busing to  and from Vancouver for the  group. They will pay their  own ferry fares.  The Long Island Youth  Symphony Orchestra consists  of 85 orchestra players ranging in age from 15 to 26.  They are accompanied by two  married   couples   and   the  mother of one of the players  as well as the group's director,  Martin Dreiwitz.  The group is to arrive on  Friday, July 4, during the day  and billets for all of these  people are required. It is  hoped that parents of students  on the School District's  various band programmes  might like to help with the  required billetting. Meals and  lodging are sought for the  three day stay. Anyone who  is interested in billetting  these young people should  leave their number and name  at the Coast News along with  age preference.  While here, the group will  give two concerts, admission  by donation and the proceeds  going to the Eileen Glassford  Arts Foundation and the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council.  Further information on this  exciting cultural exchange  will be carried in this newspaper.  Benny seeks support  Benny LePage addressed  the May 21 meeting of the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce in search of  support for his programme of  youth-oriented programmes.

Best show at Arts Centre  To talk of "white on white"  would seem to reduce artistic  expression to almost too pure  a form. But of course Wanda  Best takes us beyond purity  since in creating a third  dimension through embossing  she evokes new artistic vibrations    in    the    observer.  This seemingly austere  expression reveals through  some magic, a curious shadowy world. It is as if we had  passed through Alice's Looking Glass.  All this will be revealed  Monday, June 2, 8:00 p.m.,  when Wanda Best, one of the  coast's most highly trained  artists, opens her show at the  Art disappointing  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  in Sechelt. All are welcome to  come and meet the artist and  join us in a cup of coffee.  Wanda has studied at the  Universities of Saskatchewan  and Manitoba, Ontario College of Art, and the University  of Oregon. The show will  consist of embossed and  woodcut prints and ceramics.  "I like to listen to the  rhythms in natural things,"  she says, "By expressing  those rhythms in form alone, I  am attempting to articulate  in the simplest terms."  The less familiar side of this  talented artist not shown  before at the Arts Centre is  her involvement in ceramics.  It was suggested to LePage  by several members of the  Chamber of Commerce that if  his organization could do  something to help to reduce  the vandalism being suffered  in the village it would "make  points with a lot of local  merchants" and perhaps the  required supervision would be  forthcoming.  by Joan Huestis Foster  High School Art is one of my  secret vices. I have always  adored the youthful energy and  imagination generated by unrestrained adolescence. It is an  effective off beat time in one's  creative life. For years I have  gone out of my way to catch  these exhibits and art fairs at  the various high schools in  Vancouver, Burnaby and Victoria and have come away  amazed and inspired by the  versatility exhibited by the  kids.  I have seen some splendid  glazed ceramic masks (the Four  Horsemen of Apocalypse),  large sculptures, vivid portraits, marvellously printed  fabrics, clever buttons, railroad  towns, enormous murals, papier mache creatures and much  more unforgetable creative  work, all done by eager students given the opportunity to  freely express themselves in a  well equipped art room.  My enthusiasm was already  ^OUTBOARD MOTOR  Service  ��� Repair  Handbooks  [ British Seagull:  2-6 hp. models v  Mercury:  4-40 hp. 1964-1978  50-200 hp. 1964-1979  > Evlnrude:  1.5-35 hp. 1965-1978  40-140 hp. 1965-1979  [ Chryiler  3.5-20 hp. 1966-1979  25-140 hp. 1966-1979  ' Johnson:  1.5-35 hp. 1965-1978 'i  40-140 hp. 1965-1977 {(  i Stern Drive:  OMC ��� MorCruiser  Volvo ��� Stern-Powr  Berkeley ��� Jacuzzi  \_RDP lioohsl-ore  Gibsons Landing  886-7744 Ji  generated in favour of the high  school exhibit currently on  view at the Sunshine Coast Art  Centre in Sechelt.  However, although the current exhibit displays some skill  and technical expertise, it is the  only sedate high school art  show I have ever seen. How  does it happen that usually  irrepressible teen aged kids  produce a staid, colourless  exhibition of art.  In clay she is more concerned  with the actual three dimensional sculptural form, both  free standing and in relief.  Several of her sculptural  ceramic forms were conceived  as an interchangeable grouping. In her handbuilt carved  bowls she moves back again to  her print-reliefs.  Of course all of this is to be  seen to be experienced, and  the interplay of light and  shadow of two dimensions  and three give the observer  much to contemplate. At  present her work can be seen  in various galleries throughout  Canada, and this May her  work was featured at the  Paperworks Gallery in Vancouver.

Coast News, May 27, 1980  Dogwoods need protection  Maryanne's viewpoint  hy Maryanne West  Aren't the dogwoods beautiful this year'.'  Luxuriously bedecked with  snow-white blossoms they turn  our highways and byways into  a fairyland each May. Oh, I  know that botanically speaking  those showy white bracts arc  not the petals they appear to be  and thai the real llowers arc  small, greenish and clustered in  the centre of the bracts like the  Christmas poinsetta, but that  doesn't make them any less  attractive,  Although the western dogwood seems to us who live on  ihe Sunshine (oast to be  common enough tree, this is an  illusion Its liabn.it is restricted  io tin southwestern corner of  B.C, the I lasei Valley. Vancouver Maud and the lower  slopes of Ihe mountains surrounding Georgia Strait.  \ neighbour phoned mc  recently, concerned that with  all the development in the area,  wilh new roads being pushed  through and old ones ruthlessly  widened we may be in danger of  losing many of these trees  which give us so much pleasure  each spring.  We do. I suppose, sit back  and lake it for granted that  because thc dogwood is our  provincial emblem and is  protected by a law which makes  anyone caught picking the  (lowers or otherwise mutilating  the tree liable to a fine, that its  safely is ensured. Apart from  I he fact that picking the llowers  is only part of the problem,  perhaps more important always is ihe survival of thc  propel conditions for growth  but it is one thing to pass a law  and quite another lo enforce it.  Obviously the law concerning  dogwoods isn't given any  priority by our local law  enforcement detachment as I  phoned both the RCMP and  ihe Forestry department to try  to find oul just how the law was  worded and thc amount ofthe  line. Neither knew and after 3  calls to the RCMP I gave up  bothering them.  Ultimately like everything  else the dogwood will only  continue to flourish if we care  about il. About ten years ago  the highways department used  winter works grants to hire  ciews lo clear roadside growth.  Everything was falling before  the swinging machetes. We  pointed mil the anomaly to thc  10 the Minister in Victoria.  Here was a government department destroying trees protected  by that government's law. it  didn't make sense. The directive c ime bick from Victoria in  short order "spare that dogwood".  Next a cry for help went out  from the highway crews: "We  don't know which arc the  dogwoods in the tangle of  young maple, alder cherry,  spirea etc." So the residents of  Gower Point went oul and  marked their dogwoods (and  -onie oilier trees we wanted  saved). Those dogwoods are today in riotous bloom, but for  how many more years?  No-one in their right mind  eilhci cuts down or bulldozes a  dogwood ill lull bloom, fhe  trouble is. ol course. Ihe  blossom lasts maybe 6 weeks  and for h\c months or more thc  tree doesn't even have leaves  for quick identification. Dogwoods    do    have   distinctive  growth patterns, each years  lead shoot curves outwards, a  dip and a rise, leaving branches  with a scallopped effect, but  seemingly lew people bother  with recognition of winter  buds.  To the newcomer from the  city or out of province the bush  on his lot is just that-bush. He  may be at farsighted enough to  leave a cedar or a fir, more  likely he'll put in thc bulldozer  and scrape everything clean.  Then go to the garden shop and  buy very expensive replacements.  When we first came here I  suggested to the Village they  plan! dogwoods along the  boulevards and sidewalks to  provide not only welcome  shade in summer, bin to make  ihe village more attractive and  distinctive. That was before I  knew thai the dogwood, unfortunately has a tender heat  sensitive hark, especially when  young, making it unsuitable for  such planting as it needs she-  shade of other trees. This is why  they grow so well along the  roadsides in the company of fir,  maple and alder.  As those lands arc subdivided and cleared we may  have to think of ways to  encourage   the   dogwood.   It  looks as though the early  residents of Granthams planted them in their gardens, there  are so many lovely old trees on  that hillside, something we  could encourage others to do.  The Arts _ Council might  sponsor a Dogwood festival in  May each year, between Easter  and Victoria Day, it would  seem an appropriate name for a  celebration of our creative  talents.  We might have an Arbor  Day in thc fall, a better time for  moving and planting trees than  in thc spring, and perhaps thc  developers and the Highways  department would be persuaded to leave as many  dogwoods as possible and to  move the smaller ones to new  locations.  As my neighbour said, it's  not that thc dogwood is yet an  endangered species, but Nature  has given us, for free, this  beautiful tree, a joy to behold  especially in spring, as with so  many other things it depends  upon us to maintain the  environment in which it can  grow. If wc just thoughtlessly  flatten everything under the  bulldozer blade, we shall lose  our heritage of beauty, whether  or not it is protected by decree  in Victoria.

Conflict of  interest  by Jon Van Arsdell  Mae and Robert Bathgate  were visited on Moms' Day  by their daughter, Deb. Deb,  and her husband Cal, live in  Nanaimo where Cal slugs it  out for the RCMP. Deb was  Pender Harbour Centennial  May Queen in 1976 and was  sorry she was unable to accept  the Harbour's invitation for  all the past queens to attend  this year's May Day celebrations, but the family was in  Vancouver while Cal attended  a special police course.  Billy and Iris Griffith  were visited by friends, Dave  and Pat Robson from North  Vancouver, last weekend, and  we assembled on Saturday to  copperpaint the Tzoonie  River. It's a ritual we perform  every year before we take the  fifty-four foot seiner up North  to try to make our fortune.  This will be my fourth season  with Billy, and it really is an  exciting way to make the  family bread.  One of our local dirt miners  who operates a loader at  Argus was the recipient of  an 8 lb. 8 oz. son. Ryan  Bradly Reagh was delivered  to him and daughter Christine  (3 yrs. old) by his lovely  wife Heather.  A very interesting point was  raised after this last holiday  week-end.    A    number    of  by Sandy Loam  Quality farms on Pratt Road  informs me that, contrary to  what appeared in this space last  week, the price of their annuals  is entirely comparable with  others available locally.  Right now the garden flower  people are in a nondescript  moment when they envy the  lazy bummer who opted for a  low maintenance shrub  garden.  Most of the flowering  shrubs have been blazing for  nearly a month now and their  expansive colour has covered  over thc annual gap between  the Primroses/bulbs and the  perennials/annuals. Actually  you can jam your flowering  Geraniums in early to beat this  nasty little colour gap (but  it's been very chilly) or you  can doggedly determine to  buy at least one big flowering  shrub a year and let the  passing years fix everything.  Deronicum 'Leopards Bane'  is a very early, bright yellow  daisy that covers this time  beautifully and incidentally makes you feel you're  having an early summer as it  is the first daisy out by a  month or more. There are lots  of these daisies on the coast  but no one seems too familiar  with them and I haven't seen  them in the shops. They are  the first perennial out every  time and are easy to get from  your ever faithful gardening  mooch. They require almost  no care and are self propagating both from seed and  from pilfered roots. I will  check out the seed situation  on these as they would be a  great summer seeding venture  for tons of bloom this time  next year. White Candytuft  and pink Daphne are good but  nothing can really compete  with thc nostalgic dripping  Lilacs and Bridal Wreath,  the flamboyant Wigelea,  Dogwood, Azaleas and Rho  dodendrons that grace the  coast area right now. Even  the Arbutus and Salal are in  fresh and lovely bloom.  So look around and jot down  the name and type of your  favourite shrub and plan to  buy one in the Autumn  which is a less expensive  time of year for gardens  or put it on your birthday  hint list. For those of you with  older gardens perhaps one of  these glorious shrubs is  blooming unsung in a nether  area. Make a note to move it  in late fall to a location where  it can garner just applause.  Everyone should have a  gardening note pad.  Elphie  Band  Concert  The Elphinstone Concert  Band, whose recent accomplishments include winning the  Timbers Days band trophy and  an impromptu concert for the  patients at St. Mary's Hospital,  will be in concert next Monday.

The Naniamo group  comprises of 19 guitars and  they will be playing a mixture  of classical and popular music.  Tickets are $2 for adults and  $1 for students and senior  citizens. They will be available  at the door.  Kay Wells gave me some  super garden Broccoli, very  small flower but the most  delicious edible leaves so I  bought some to put with my  bad tempered Tomato plants.  The problem is to keep away  from it until it's a respectable  size. I suppose I might raid  Kay's garden more often near  supper time.  Also for this time of year  it is great to do another  massive edge cutting clean  up, remove dead bulb endings  and stray sneaking weeds,  clip edges and cultivate the  soil, being careful of volunteer  seedlings. This will make your  garden look better and you  feel better about your lack  of massed colour. By next  week the Oriental Poppies  will be blazing away and most  Marguerites popping. After a  really cold spring, summer's  almost here.  Happy Gardening.  At the adjournment of  Sechelt Council's regular meeting last Wednesday, Mayor  Boucher asked for council's  attention while he tried to  draw up some guidelines  for conflict of interest situations within council.  The mayor's feelings were  that the situation was getting  out of hand.  He went on to describe  how if things were taken to  extremes, every member of  council, including the chair  would be forever absenting  themselves from discussions  as they were vaguely connected with the topic in some  way.  As an example of this, he  stated that if someone has  contractual dealings with a  person or company petitioning the council, it was all right  for them to join the discussion  as long as the connection was  disclosed.

Actually  there had been times when in  despair 1 thought that it would  never arrive and that I was  forever doomed to a cold  miserable existence until I  cither succumbed from hunger  or exposure, but now it was  April and although there were  still great slate-grey masses of  snow left by the plough, piled  along the sidewalks, it was  definitely melting and the  rivulets of dirty water running  into thc city drains increased in  volume day by day as the sun's  heat gained in intensity.  About this time 1 heard  from someone or other that it  was the custom of the C.P.  Railways each spring to hire  men for what was known as  "extra gangs", their work being  to repair the tracks leading in  and out of the city that, due to  the frosts and heavy snows, had  possibly become loosened and  were a definite danger to the  movement of passengers and  freight. I had been told that the  work, mostly lifting and replacing ties, was hard and the  pay was minimal but like a  drowning man 1 was prepared  to clutch at any straw. I was  informed that the office where  one should apply for this type  of work was in the Windsor  Station so I went there one  bright April morning hoping  that by some miracle the story  really was factual and that,  keeping my fingers crossed all  the way, 1 would be one of the  lucky ones hired. Never did I  anticipate the good fortune  that was in store for me.  1 found the office without  any difficulty. There were quite  a few men waiting to be  interviewed and it was only too  evident that I looked the least  prepossessing candidate for  work of all of them as I  definitely wis the most shabbily dressed and whereas they  all looked so healthy and  strong I, in comparison, due to  the many meals I had missed,  was pale, thin and wan looking.  However when my name  was called 1 pulled myself  together and, managing a  smile, was ushered into the  presence of a Mr. Benson, a  tall, handsome, grey haired  man in his early fifties who,  motioning me to be seated,  began in a kindly and courtly  manner to question me as to my  fitness lor the type of work  offered. To this day 1 really  can't imagine what he saw in  me or why I liked him right  from the commencement ofthe  interview. Without going into a  lot of unnecessary details, I told  him a little of what 1 had been  through that winter and how  anxious 1 was to get out of the  city and earn a little money  and, no matter how hard the  work, I would do my best to  satisfy whoever was in charge. 1  don't think I was servile or  cringing in manner but I was  honest and I think he recognized that fact and that he  mentally registered it as a point  in my favour. After a brief  silence in which he seemed to be  deep in thought, while he  tapped lightly on his desk with  a pencil, he apparently came to  a decision and then, looking me  squarely in the face, he outlined  what he had in mind.  It was not "extra gang"  work at all or anything resembling a labouring job for  the railroad. According to the  story he unfolded, he had a  personal friend, a millionaire,  who had a country estate out  on Lake St. Louis near the  town of Pointe Claire, a  distance of about twelve miles  from Montreal, lt was the time  of year, so he explained, when  the Bronstcins closed down  their large house on Drummond Street in thc city and with  their staff moved for the  summer months to the lake. At  the time he didn't mention how  large either the estate was or  how many people it took to  maintain it, but he did say that  there were gardens and lawns  to be cared for, also tennis  courts, so a great deal of work  had to be done to put it into  shape for the arrival of the  owners. He was certain that  with my Scottish background 1  would get along well with "Old  Mac" the head gardener.  Now came an awkward  pause as possibly he searched  for the right words to convey  something tactfully to me  without hurting my feelings.  My heart was thumping, I was  wildly excited and 1 don't think  anything he could have possibly said could have restrained  my enthusiasm, but at long last  he spoke and it was put in such  a kindly manner that no-one,  least of all me, could take  offence. "Don" he said, "you  have everything going for you,  your youth, your manner and  your speech but 1 can't send  you out looking the way you  do." Whereupon he took his  wallet from his pocket and  handed me a $20 bill. To say I  was dumbfounded is to put it  mildly but 1 accepted it and  looked at him in a questioning  way to know what I was to do  with it. "Although it is not a  great deal" he said, "I want you  to go and get yourself some new  clothes, a new pair of pants, a  couple of shirts, some socks  and, above all, a pair of good  strong working boots and, if  you have enough left over, a  jacket or windbreaker. When  you have done this 1 want you  to come back here and we will  make arrangements not only to  send you out to Pointe Claire  but to advise Maclvor of your  coming."  1 really didn't know what  to say or how to thank him but  the thought suddenly occurred  to me - how does he know 1  won't take this money, get  drunk and he will never see me  again? Whether lie read my  thoughts 1 will never know but  he smiled when he shook my  hand at thc door and said  "Okav Don I will see you this  Aluminum,  Wooden, and  I0HUERSI0H  WINDOWS  Auto & Boat  Glass  afternoon and be sure you get  here before the office closes at  5:00 p.m."  The rest is history. In a  daze I bought myself a new  outfit, carried it back to the  C.P.R. station, using the public  facilities, had a good long  shower before putting it on.  Around 2:30 p.m. I was back in  Mr. Benson's office where he  gave me my letter of introduction to "Old Mac" and a  ticket to Pointe Claire  I caught the five o'clock  train and I still couldn't believe  it. In less than a twelve hour  period 1 had gone from being a  derelict on the streets of  Montreal to having a job and a  whole new outfit to wear. Was 1  dreaming or could it really be  true?

See adjacent story. Photo hy M.M.Joe,  Stolen truck crashes here  Radio Active...  Three youths from the  Lower Mainland were involved in a traffic accident  while leaving the ferry terminal at Langdale on Saturday  afternoon May 17th.  By checking the registration  it was found that the pickup  truck driven by the men was  stolen and potentially contained radioactive material.  The truck had been stolen  from the Matsqui residence  of an employee of Hardy  Associates of Burnaby. Its  inventory included soil testing  equipment and radioactive  materials, these were in a  locked container inside the  truck canopy.  The two men inside the cab  of the truck left the scene of  the accident. The third,  who was a passenger in the  rear was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital with head injuries.  When questioned, he informed the police that they had  ripped the canopy off the truck  and thrown it and the container marked "dangerous  materials" into a field at the  Canadian National Defence  station at Aldergrove. The  container was located and  testing at the base showed  that there had been no leakage.  Dr. Wayne Green, director  of the Radiation Protection  Service for the Ministry of  Health said that the cannister  contained 10 millicuries of  caesium and SO millicuries of  amorissium 241Be. (1000 millicuries are equal to one gram  of radium). This, he said, was  a small, but not insignificant  amount. In this quantity, the  material is not lethal, but  could    cause    burns    after  prolonged  halation.  exposure   or   in-  Harry Watson from Hardy  Associates said that it was  common practice for an  employee to transport these  materials when they were  scheduled to be out on a job  site. The cannister was inside  the locked canopy of the truck  and two more locks were on  Raku  workshop  The Sunshine Coast Potter's  Guild and Continuing Education are co-sponsoring a  Raku Workshop on Saturday,  May 31, at Elaine Futter-  man's place in Roberts Creek.  Jeanne Sarich, a Fraser Valley  potter, is going to instruct us in  this ancient Japanese method  of firing pottery.  This event will begin at 9  a.m. with the building of the  kiln. Fuel for the kiln, approximately one cord of wood, will  be reduced to kindling size.  Special raku glazes will be  prepared, and everyone will  decorate their pots... Mid-day,  while the kiln is continually  watched and stoked to thc  temperature needed for the  firing, we will all feast on the  traditional Raku Potluck delicacies. In the afternoon, the  pots will be fired.  If you wish to participate in  the Raku, phone Continuing  Education at 885-3512. The  cost is $10 for Guild members  and $ 12 for non-members. Clay  is available at the Craft Studio  in Gibsons. For more information, phone Elaine Futterman  at 885-2395 or Marg Berry at  886-7881.  the container.  The casualty in thc accident, 19 year-old Jimmy  Joseph has been charged and  will appear in court at Sechelt  on May 28th. One of the  others involved has been  charged through family court  in Matsqui and the third  occupant of the truck has  been questioned concerning  his part in the incident.  886-7454  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  EFFECTIVE JUNE 2,1980  EASTWOOD ft COMPANY  BARRISTERS 1 SOLICITORS  WILL BE LOCATED AT THEIR  NEW OFFICES ON THE SECOND  FLOOR OF TEREDO SQUARE IN  SECHELT.

Raisin Bread    ... 89*  Floured scones  $1.19  RECIPE OF Tr  WEEK  To absent husbands  I spent Friday on the field of battle attacking  that which in other households is called "the  lawn". I managed to kill two mowers���the old  one, then the new one, plus a weedeater, and  may yet be accused of inflicting irremediable  damage on a third which was lent to me by a  trusting friend. With mechanical helplessness I  threatened a couple of the machines with a  screwdriver but then decided to retire from the  fray. 1 rewarded myself for victory over one third  of the battlefield with a glass of wine and sat  down to watch the grass grow. Unfortunately at  this point I noticed signs of low blood sugar in  the children. I groaned my way to the fridge,  opened it...and did one of those Mother  Hubbard double takes. I quickly gulped my wine  and pulled everything out:��� three eggs, half a  bag of spinach, half a package of bacon and  some cheese. We ended up eating a Spinach  Quiche which seemed to meet with approval. I  judged that by the fact that the three year old  had two helpings. I served it with a very simple  salad���lettuce thinnings and radishes, .so. .never  despair when your cupboards are bare!  Spinach Quiche  1. Make 1 1/4 cups of pastry and pop it into  the freezing compartment of your fridge.  2. Wash and cook half a bag of spinach.  When cooked drain off any water and chop  finely.  3. Snip 8 rashers of bacon into small pieces  and broil till crisp. Drain on kitchen paper.  4. Grate 1 cup of cheese.  5. In a bowl beat 3 eggs and I cup of milk. Add  salt and pepper to taste.  6. Preheat ouen to 400 degrees F.  1. Remove thepistry from the fridge and roll out  to fit a cake tin  ��� 8 in. X 1 1/2 in.  8. Mix spinach, bacon, cheese with the egg  mixture and pour into the pastry shell.  9. Place in the oven for 10 minutes at 400  degrees F then reduce heat to 350 degrees Ffor  25 minutes.  This could serve four, but two hungry  children and I demolished all but a very small  piece which made a good late night snack!

Those who lived in the age of the outdoor toilet will appreciate  both the humour and the reminder of those by-gone days.  The author cleverly articulated the manner in which the specialist  constructed a better outdoor "privy". It was built for icomfort there was a  special place for the mail order catalogue, much in use before the advent of  toilet tissue. The specially designed crescent cut into the outhouse door  was not only an artistic touch, it let in arayofwarm sunshine in the daytime  and a beam of moonlight at night.  It was conveniently located near the woodpile, for the dual reason that if  one of the ladies of the house had the urge to go, she could presume to be  going for an armful of wood for the kitchen stove. She would, atany rate, be  expected to bring in an armful on her return trip.  The story was worth a belly-laugh from beginning to end, particularly  because it was written by a person who obviously had the necessary  experience to write about it. Yes, it was a clear case of persuasion for the  advantages of employing a specialist.  My thoughts went back to this story as I contemplated the manychanges  that have occurred in a few decades as well as the continuing need for this  specialist. Eaton's mailorder catalogue, which was in every household and  outhouse is a thing of the past. When the power outage occurred for over an  hour last week, everything literally ceased to operate, ���no lights, - no  power, - no heat, no nothingl As we groped in the dark for candles, I thought  of the need for a kerosene lamp once again, to stand in reserve for light. The  return to use of the wood stove is to my mind, a good thing. The delicate  transmission line has become our collective life-line We are all rendered  helpless when it is cut.  Perhaps more self-reliance will be brought back to our way of life through  sheer necessity.  <Px  By the way, for around $12 we can sell you a lovely battery-powered lamp.  just the thing for those frequent power outages, and safer than candles. Ask  us to show you one.  Boating Hazards & Sea Rescue  While out on a fishing expedition with Gary White, my in-laws from  London and Saskatoon, were treated to some B.C.hospitality and the thrill  of landing a good-sized Spring Salmon weighing 16 lb 8 oz. When a fish of  that size is finally netted it is a thrill merely to be aboard. Then, because we  lost a couple and collectively had only one fish, Gary, through his friend  Leonard came up with a couple more, 12 & 8 pounders for my guests  Thank you, Gary and Leonard, so very much.  If I've got your attention, I'd like to hold it a moment longer while I tell you  of a worth-while project that needs our financial support.  Each year several lives are lost out there for want of immediate rescue  assistance. Gary and a small group of expert power-craft boaters want to  establish a local Marina-based list of equipment necessary for sea rescue as  follows:  Survival Suits- Minimum of 2 -at $330 each  Scow Pump- Minimum of 1 -at $450 each  P.E.D. Life Jackets- Minimum of 4 -at $18 each  Misc. gear, Boat Hook, Tow line. etc. etc.- estimated $200  Total Cost $1300 - $1500  They have three boats currently registered with P.E.P. (PROVINCIAL  EMERGENCY PROGRAM). Anne and Jane at GIBSONS FISH MARKET  have agreed to assist in collecting donations towards the needed  equipment. Let's help those men to help save lives. None of us can know the  moment when help will be urgently required, and when it is, the skill and  equipment of the specialist is needed  Give them your donation, please.

Coast News, May 27, 1980  Carl's corner  Steampot to skyhook  Fart VIII  by Carl Chrismas  As promised, Frank Hoy  returned later that afternoon  ��itli a large box of sandwiches,  cake and pie and all the  makings lor coffee. As well as  being pump tender and straw  boss, he was making me chief  cook and bottle washer of the  llrecrew, By gathering up a  supply of bark and dry chips  from around the landing, I  soon had a small fire burning  on a sand bar at the creek side,  the water boiling and the coffee  made.  \s the men had been on the  hoses for several hours by that  lime, ihey were all ready for a  big lunch. They began breaking  up in groups of four to come in  lo eat. An and Lawson were  two ol the first and they didn't  waste any time in getting their  licks into me for b.s.'ing the  hi iss into such a soft job. But by  ilns time I was ready for a  change and offered to switch to  relieve the boredom of sitting  around four roaring pumps  wilh no one to talk to but a few  scavenging whiskey jacks. But  I rank Hoy had layed down the  ground rules and those pumps  were my responsibility.  I he rest ofthe afternoon and  evening were a break for me as  each crew came in for food or  col lee and a chance for a rest. I  was able to shoot the breeze  about one thing or another to  relieve the monotony.  Then a change in the wind  caused a flarcup of an area that  had only been lightly burned on  the first pass so all of the men  had to stay out longer on thc  nozzles.  As thc night wore on I  became drowsier and drowsier.  I got into a routine of filling all  the pumps with gas, then  retiring to my cosy nest and  dozing off for an hour or so. A  pump running out of gas would  awaken me as surely as a lire  alarm. Then I would fill them  all, check them over and altera  slug of coffee, go back to my  nest. I was too tired to notice  that when the wind changed the  exhaust fumes from loin  pumps were blowing gently mj  way. And in most cases, carbon  monoxide is odorless. It also  produces horrendous dreams.  Like swimming in a sea of cool,  boyant fire. Just floating lazily  along, sometimes on the back,  then rolling over to look ahead  at wave after wave of flame  tipped crests, burning blue and  red like the flame ol liquid  petroleum. This burning sea  laded into the distance, to be  joined at the horizon by a blue  black sky into which a billiant,  flaming sun seemed to be  burning a hole, slowly increasing in size as it approached the heat seemed to  intensify, breathing became  more and more difficult until at  last I was gasping for breath.

As 1 sank lower and lower in  this strange, cool liquid, hands  and arms seemed to be reaching  out to me. I, in turn, began  reaching lot them, struggling to  swim toward them, gasping for  just one more little breath that  would last mc to the surface.  But I was choking, gaspingand  gagging until my eyes flooded  with bursting stars, my head  seemed to ex'plode in a roar of  sound as voices began to filter  through and slowly penetrate  the brain.  "Keep him moving! Keep  him moving!", one voice was  saying. "He seems to be coming  out of it!", said another.  1 wanted to rest���to sit down  or lie down. I was so tired after  my terrible ordeal of swimming  and drowning and burning.  And I was sick. I gagged... and  gagged some more while someone dragged me along and  chortled gleefully "Hey! He's  sure getting it off his belly now.  Must of swallered one of  cookee's lunch concoctions!"  "Concoctions, hell!" said  I rank Hoy. "The dang fool was  sleepin' down wind from them  four pumps. It was carbon  monoxide what got him!"  They kept me walking until  thej were sure I could navigate  on my own. It was only then  lhat they would allow me to sit  down by the fire, pour myself a  cup oi coffee and give mc a  lecture on staying out of the  way of exhaust fumes. One of  the pumps ran out of gas and  Frank let me take care of it.

We talked for awhile and he  told me of a similar experience  he had had years before. He  said he had never really gotten  it out of his system as once it is  in the bloodstream, it remains  there. It only takes a slight wiff  to produce a splitting headache. Over the years 1 have  found him to be right. That was  42 years ago and a leaky  muffler will put me on an  armfull of ASA to this day.  It was about four a.m. when  wm  Frank decided I could hack it  O.K. He noticed I had shivered  once in thc coolofthe night and  had hunkered up closer to the  fire. He took off a handsome  leather jacket and threw it over  my shoulders.  "Here, kid. This'll keep ya'  warm 'til mornin'. I'll git it later  on in thc day!" That is so long  ago and I was so sick for the  next few days that I never got  out of bed or camp to return it  to him.  By the time I was able to  travel and head for home, the  Rosewall fire was under control. As there is a gap in my  memory of happenings for the  following week or two, I never  did find out what happened to  thc Lidgerwood Slackline Skidder, or if Thompson and Clarke  ever finished the claim.  I am going to make it a  point to try to find out in the  near future, lt would be  sacrilege to let thc history of a  great machine that had so  much to do with the logging of  some of thc roughest and  toughest country on the B.C.  Coast, die without some sort of  tribute to her remains.

The problem centres around  concern that with the over-use  of the space available, there  could be access difficulties  for emergency vehicles.  It was decided that a final  letter be sent to the School  Board and if there was no  action within 10 days, council  would take the matter into  its own hands. The motion was  passed by majority.  Alderman Hall moved that  up to $1,000.00 be set aside  to hire Larry MacDonald  to act as an expeditor to  carry out any recommendation  to put the arena on a firm  financial footing. He felt that  it would be unfair to ask  MacDonald to volunteer his  services as the time involved  would be around 80 hours  and that the money would be  well spent. Hall also asked  that an additional $2,000.00  be put aside for auditors.  There was concern about the  financial status of the arena  and whether it would be  feasible to budget the money.  It was decided that the matter  should be put to the arena  committee before any decision  was made.  Pebble Holdings wrote  council asking that lots 25 to  36 on Block G of D.L. 304 be  rezoned to permit a density  of 50 units per acre. Alderman  Hall pointed out that the land  involved had already been  rezoned and it was recommended that the matter be  referred to the planning  committee. Still on Pebbles  Holdings, Hall pointed out  that the land below the power  line was still a mess. Alderman Stelck said that he had  talked to the principals and  told them that there was a  "real neat" cave in the bank  and children were playing in  it. >The principals had indicated alarm.  Members who attended the  Mothers Day meeting to  discuss the UBC students  thesis for a recreation centre  at the head of Wharf Street  expressed interest in the  concept. Alderman Brown  said that although the scope  was vast, the idea was  excellent and should be taken  note of. It was decided that  the Sechelt Indian Band  should be approached with an  eye to joint participation.  A letter from Sunshine  Coast Disposal informed council that the monthly price  of garbage collection for the  village would be increased  from $805 to $925. There  was discussion about asking  for a breakdown in the figures,  but it was decided that it  should be handled by Alderman Brown through the public  works committee.  Alderman Hall reported  that P.M. Gordon's survey  office was in a residential  area and therefore nonconforming. He had been  given until 10 a.m. on the day  of this meeting to rectify  the situation. Since this had  not happened Hall felt it  was the duty of council to  enforce the by-laws. Although  the members did not feel  good about it, they felt that  they had no choice and the  motion was passed unanimously.  "...meanwhile,  back at the Reach..."  ,J.(P  "You want the make-up? Take the make-up."  by Strange & Strange  ...meanwhile back at the  Reach we wuz robbed!  $200,000.00 worth of cameras,  microphones, tape recorders,  film stock and custom built  accessories went out the  basement window of Molly's  Reach in the small hours of  a holiday weekend morning  helped along by some efficient  and selective thieves who  apparently knew just what  they wanted, where to find it  and when to rip it off. They  took only the best each  department had to offer;  the two workhorse Arriflex  cameras, a small fortune in  optical jewellery, John  'Harllng's two silky-smooth  Nagra tape recorders, microphones capable of hearing  Susan Hogan sneeze up in  Ritter's Cove (hiss-boo) and  an inventory of filmmaking  equipment adequate to set  up two small movie companies  somewhere in the nether  regions of the industry.  Perhaps the stuff will show up  on a skinflick set in Lima  or Thunder Bay, your guess is  as good as mine.  It is quite probable that the  robbery occurred at about the  same time that last week's  column was undergoing its  final two-finger polish causing  your humble correspondents  to be royally scooped by just  about everybody. In the  immortal words of Howie  Meeker we were "out for a  hot-dog" on that one. Not  unlike having the overtime  goal dribble between your  knees. We can of course  attribute this failure to the  "luck of the game", "whim  of the gods", "sophomore's  jinx" rationale which specifically covers the multitude of  missed catches endured in  the game of life. That the most  conspicuous and lavish industry in an otherwise modest  community should attract the  attention of some professional  crooks must come under  the heading of Dramatic  Inevitability, that theatrical  principle which insists the  stick of dynamite seen in the  villain's pocket in Act One,  must go off in Act Three.  In this case The Beachcombers, an outside force,  imposed itself on the village  and brought along such  suspect benefits as tourist  hordes,   rising   real   estate  values and inconvenient traffic  patterns, so too it has carried  attendant forces in its wake  producing resentment, hostility and as of Sunday morn,  some highly ambitious larceny. No doubt the robbers  came from outside and are  long gone by now. No one  suspects otherwise. It is  unfortunate that the most  successful series in the  country must struggle along  for the rest of the season with  borrowed tools. What is  perhaps more unfortunate is  that we've managed to put  gentle Lower Gibsons on the  Significant Crimes List of  1980.  P.S. Bob Clothier and Pat  John walked the full 50  kilometers for the new Indian  Centre and those extravagant  subscribers who were counting on an early termination of  the effort are herewith required to cough it up.  Inter-Action Auction  Over five hundred people  throughout the day attended  the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre's Inter-Action Auction on  Saturday, May 24, and approximately $4,000 was raised  for the Centre.  Among the services that were  bid for and bought during the  day some of the highlights  were: Mary Bland winning the  Clown Show by Gerardo Avila  and generously inviting the  second place bidder to attend  also; Joy Graham bid successfully on the Gordon Smith  painting of a Long Beach scene  Elphie Band Teacher Bill  Rayment bid for and earned a  parrot donated by Ricky Lei-  psic. When asked if the parrot  could say his name yet Bill  confessed that he thought it  spoke only Spanish but was  intent on teaching it to play the  clarinet so they could communicate through music.

"The Chamber is not a  locomotive to which you hitch  yourself and go along for the  ride. The Chamber is you, and  if you want something done  go ahead and do it."  Pettersen pointed out that  unionized workers contribute  much more to their unions  than local businessmen are  asked to contribute to the  Chamber of Commerce. He  also said that the Chamber  should be sensitive to the  needs of the general community, not merely the business  community,  and  that  there  should be Chamber involvement with the process of local  government.  "We should check and  monitor local governments,"  said Pettersen, "but we  should also get behind them  and help them."  In the elections held during  the meeting Past-President  Jon McRae was re-elected to  the position of President for  the coming year. Joining him  on the executive for next  year will be Barry Reeves  as Vice-President, Pamela  Ryan as Secretary, Tony  Tyler as Treasurer and a nine-  member directorate comprised of Norm Peterson, Haig  Maxwell, Larry Labonte,  Dennis Suveges, John Kavanagh, Blain Hagcdorn, Graham Edney, Gerry Kirsch,  and Steve Sawyer.  Coast News, May 27, 1980  11.  Water Safety  Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons officially proclaimed the  week of June 1 - 7 as Red Cross Water Safety week at the meeting  of Gibsons Council held on Tuesday, May 20. The official  proclamation reads as follows:  Whereas activities in an around the water constitute a major part  of the recreational enjoyment of Gibsons residents; and  Whereas the Red Cross Water Safety Service is dedicated to the  prevention of drownings and the promotion of health and  physical fitness; and  Whereas we are in strong support of these objectives  Now therefore I, Lorraine Goddard, Mayor of the Village of  Gibsons do hereby proclaim the week of June 1 - 7, 1980 as  Red Cross Water Safety Week in Gibsons, B.C.

The  mayor said that when she had  attended the AVIM conventions she had always found  something of interest.  "The AVIM is big enough  to take up issues on our  behalf," said the mayor. "I  would be reluctant to resign  from the AVIM."  Mayor Goddard pointed out  that as far as she knew  the local regional government  was not in agreement with the  Boucher suggestion and council voted to reject the suggestion.  Garbage protests  At Thursday's meeting ofthe  Public Utilities Committee of  the regional board, Waste  Disposal Committee Chairman  Jim Gurney was presented with  more than 200 letters protesting the closure of the  Gibsons disposal site and  requesting that an alternate site  be found in the area.  "The problem is not being  completely forgotten," Director Gurney assured the  board. "We are investigating  alternatives."  rS/ A SUNSHINE  y KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  WATERBEDS and  CUSTOM DRAPES  >-    Complete Line of Samples  ctaniadown quilts   Back In Stock!

In  all there were twelve teams  involved and the Renegades  played five games in the tournament.  In their first game on May  17 the Renegades played the  Sasquatch Club from the  Fraser Valley and defeated  them handily by a score  of 5-1. Later in the day the  locals enjoyed a big victory,  defeating Kilgard, also from  the Fraser Valley by a score  of 11.2.  On May 18, the Renegades  were involved in what proved  to be the most exciting  game of the tournament.  They were playing the Sliam-  mon Sounders of Powell River  arid at the end of regulation  time the game was tied at 3-3.  Overtime was played with two  ten-minute halves and the  Renegades emerged as 4-3  winners, scoring the winner  one minute from the end ofthe  overtime.  In the final game the  Renegades met a very tired  Musqueam team from Vancouver and defeated them 5-2  to take the first place trophy.  The Renegades emerged as  winners of another close game  on May 19. In a game with the  Tzeacten Lancers  of Chilli  wack both teams played to a  1-1 tie at the end of even the  overtime and the game was  decided on a shootout, each  team using ten different  shooters, and the Renegades  outscored their opponents  in the shootout 8-7 to take  the decision.  Individual trophies went to  Gary Feschuk, All-Star, Kevin  August, Most Sportsmanlike  Player, and Stuart Craigan,  Most Valuable Player in the  tournament.

Strikes and spares ��gjg,  by Bod Mulcaster  The Bowling Banquet was  held last Sat. night and we  would like to thank Dianne  Fitchell and Carole Skytte  for another successful evening. Planning and organizing  a banquet for five leagues is  no easy task and except for a  couple of minor problems  things went very nicely.  We would also like to thank  all the leagues for the gifts to  us, they are deeply appreciated.  The two teams that were the  Teambowl finalists bowled at  North Shore Bowl a couple  of weeks ago for a trip to  Reno and didn't fare too well.  I think we'll just say that it  was a fun day and the ferry  ride was nice. A team from  North Shore won the trip and  the two teams from Garibaldi  Lanes in Squamish came  second and third.  The Spring League is in the  4th week and due to the power  outage we didn't get finished  Wed. night but here are some  of the higher scores from  Wed. morning and Thurs.  night.

The increase,  from the present rate of $25 per  hour to $35 per hour is  necessary, Alderman Stu Metcalfe explained, in order to  offset increased maintenance  costs, particularly the employment of an  extra lifeguard  From the Fairway  by Ernie Home  Our Ladies Captain and  Vice Captain journeyed to  Surrey Golf Course last week  to compete in the Captain and  Vice Captain's Tournament.  Helen managed to place 6th  low net and uphold the  Sunshine Golf Club's honour.  McCleery Golf Club 3rd  team visited our ladies for  their 2nd meeting of the year  in a four game series. Our  club managed an easy 51-21  victory.  On Tuesday, Ladies Day,  the event of the day was a  Tic, Tac, Toe Contest with  Betty Turnbull coming 1st  and Wilma Sim 2nd.  The Senior Men were rained  out on Thursday morning and  have been issued a rain-  check for this Thursday's  coming event.  Wednesday Twilite used a  unique scoring game for the  men golfers called "Tombstone", in which players  used up the par 34 strokes and  half their handicap to continue  as far as possible in the game.  Glen Philips managed to reach  and win the 10th hole to take  top honours. Ed Laidlaw  placed 2nd.  An interesting event is  I'oming up for the men in the  Crown Life Pro-am Tournament, which is match play  with full handicap. Entry fee  is $5.00. All proceeds are  given to the Crippled Children  Foundation. Last year some  $11,000 was raised for the  kids. See Art Park for further  information. Enter in your  own handicap bracket.  You  No beer  Both the Sechelt and Gibsons Police have received  complaints about the amount  of alcohol being consumed at  sports events and will be  acting on them.  It has been a practice in  the past for some of the  spectators to down a few at the  game, but due to the complaints and the recent confiscation of liquor at beach  parties, police feel that they  must regulate it.  The open drinking has also  put the off duty members of  the police force in an embarrassing position when  either attending or participating in sports.  >o*sr0/f  may win an expense paid  trip to Edmonton for the  playoffs, besides doing your  bit for crippled children.  Next Sunshine Coast Club  Tournament will be the  President vs Vice President  event  on  June   1st.  during rental periods.  Pool Manager George Bodt  told the Coast News that Public  Health Laws require two  qualified lifeguards, conversant with emergency procedures, to be present during any  public use of the pool.  Though the pool will provide  two lifeguards during rental  sessions effective immediately,  Bodt said, the rate increase will  likely not be in effect until  September when the new pool  brochure is published.  "We contacted the appropriate authorities in Victoria,"  Bodt said, "to clarify whether  or not rental of the pool by  private groups was still considered public use of the pool,  but they haven't been able to  give us a clear answer, so we  have to play it safe."  Junior  Baseball  Due to several called games,  the junior baseball standings  are not available this week.  They will be published next  week.  Coaches of the other leagues  are urged to contact the paper  for publication of their results.  The Elphlnstone Aero Club  Gibsons-Sechelt Airport and  C.A.V.U. Aviation Ltd.

In my last column  I had mentioned that they  were applying for a licence  to spray 2-4D in the Skaiakos  Point and the Crowston Lake  area (and now the Wormy  Lake area). He pointed out  that I had made a wee bit of  an error in my terminology.  Instead of spraying, I should  have said applying. Apparently what they will be doing  is called 'hack and squirt'.  The modus operandi is to hack  a piece out of an alder and  then apply the chemical  to the gash. I have an invitation to accompany him and  the crew, if and when they  begin. We'll also go to a site  Lei Lake experimentation with  Orthene.  Porpoise Bay Much.  If you look, or already have  looked at the letters to the  editor page, you'll see a piece  by Scott Forbes on his views  about the importance of the  headwaters of Porpoise Bay.  Scott works for the Fish and  Wildlife Branch of the provincial government. He took  over from Keith Simpson last  year and is doing the studies  on the great blue heron. By  the way, a couple of the  heronries have relocated and  if you have any idea where  they have gone, give me a call  and I'll pass it on.  About a week and a half  ago, as a member of the  Marsh Society, I attended a  meeting with Doug Roy,  Helen Dawe and Hank Hall,  to look at Hank's latest ideas  for the bay-head. His present  concept is to utilise the  (smelly mud) as a haven for  wildlife and build his tourist  complex along that theme. So  far, apart from leaving everything the way it is, it's the  best idea I've heard yet.  I spoke with Scott about this  and he has been trying to meet  with Hank. In fact they missed  each other by about a minute  last Friday and Hank ended up  chasing the wrong station  wagon to catch him. So since  you don't have a telephone  Scott, if you read this, get in  ouch with Hank as he wishes  o meet you.  Eggs.  A week ago,  I  meant to  that was done in the past and  have a look-see. At the time of wrjte about the great chicken  writing this there is a petition producers fiasco. Apparently  against   thc   application   in  circulation.  By the way, there is also a  petition put out by the Gibsons  Wildlife riiih   protesting the  the provincial government has  done an about-face and will  now sell Maplewood Poultry  (I think I have that name  correct) to Cargill.  Well, if  the government can change its  mind, I can change mine too.  My original complaint was  that since the government had  sold Panco Poultry to the  American company Cargill, it  created the situation whereby  if they allowed the sale of  Maplewood they would be  authorising a virtual monopoly  by a foreign company. My  contention was that, if they  can sell a government owned  business to foreign interests,  then what is wrong with a  money-losing private operation doing the same.  As I say, the government  has flip-flopped and will now  allow the sale. Well I'll do the  same. What is wrong with the  Maplewood operation is that  it needs an influx of capital  to continue on a competitive  basis. The amount is in the  $4 million range, an amount  which Cargill would be willing  to spend. One of the cries  doing the rounds is "what  about the workers", over a  100 of them would be laid off  if Maplewood closes its doors.  Doesn't this sound familiar?  Back east somewhere there is  a poor starving company  called Chrysler (Canada?)  Ltd. who made a similar  appeal for the workers and the  money rolled into their bank  account from our tax dollars.  If I am going to have my  tax dollar spent on supporting  an ailing company, I would far  rather see it spent on a  Canadian company, than  giving it to a foreign owned  one whose only claim to  citizenship is that they stick  our country's name at the end  of their corporate letterhead.  So why does the government  not treat its own as it treats  others and help out Maplewood?  Greenpeace.,  Greenpeace is off and  running again... This time  they are protesting the practice of trophy hunting. Good  for them.  One of the animals that they  feel is victim to this practice  and on the decline, is the  Osborne Caribou. It is hunted  in Spatsizi Park, along with  the bighorn sheep, the grizzly  bear, the black bear, moose  and wolves.  Here are a couple of quotes  from the Greenpeace press  release. "Our Campaign poster will be distributed throughout British Columbia in an  effort to bring strong public  pressure against the continued licencing of resident  and non-resident hunters who  shoot prime big game animals  for their heads and horns."  The next one is a bit high-  falutin', but the point should  be taken. "We are counting  on the people of B.C. to  support our efforts to end this  barbaric ritual which results  in the sacrifice of our most  noble wildlife heritage. Such  savagery has long ago been  outlawed in more civilized  countries, where the camera  had replaced the high-powered rifle as a means of shooting  big game."  I had a discussion yesterday  about the difference between  target shooting and hunting.  I feel that a large percentage  of the population would be  liars if they tried to say that  it is just as exciting to shoot  at a target as it is to go out  after game. Most people  who would say this have not  hunted. However trophy hunting is a different ball of wax  and anyone to participates in  it has the audacity to put  their adrenalin rush before the  life of an animal and should be  stopped.  If you want more information from Greenpeace, their  Vancouver  number  is   732-  0321.  Hunting.  A questionnaire is presently  in the mail to hunters who  wish to have some input into  the openings in their area.  Contact Paul F. Haley at  387-5047 for more info.  Red Tide.  Most of you have probably  heard about the red tide in  the northern part of Vancouver Island which killed a  Guilford Island Man. This  has resulted in a closure  to all shellfish from Campbell  River north to SO km. above  the top end of the island.  The water flow on the inside  passage crests around Campbell River, so it should keep all  these nasty organisms away  from us.  Just on the off chance that  you eat a shellfish and get  sick, here's the drill. Induce  vomiting, take a laxative,  and drink a solution of baking  powder or baking soda and  get medical help as soon as  possible. The number to call  if you want to learn more, is  666-3169 or your local fisheries office at 883-2313.  Where the flsh are.  I don't know.  There's lots of live bait  everywhere, but very few fish,  lt could be a combination of  bad weather, the time of year,  or the fact that eight killer  whales were seen cruising off  the Trail Island on Thursday.  Anyway, Sewell's reports very  little action in the Hole in the  Wall, but a few around Cowan  Point. Smitty's report some  are biting at Cotton Point and  Irvines  Landings  is  spotty.  ^fel*  These young prisoners are being held at the village pound. Bail has been set at a little  TLC. If you want one of them call the village office in Gibsons.  The fish are big, when you can  catch them. A nice 24 pounder  was  taken  at  Egmont.   So,  patience and tight lines.  Flsh Derbies.

Children need examples  by*   Rev.   George  Sanshinc Coast  Ujiitcd Churches  W.   Inglis  ;iThe tragedy of the sophisticated space age may very well  b&.'the final dissolution of the  fajiiily unit as the basicpillarof  a strong and democratic society.  The family unit started to  slip from its vital role in our  society soon after the descendants of the frontier families began to feel the tug of the  urban glitter, tempting them  away from the small homestead  areas with the towns and  villages that were populated by  ihe extended families of the  original homesteaders���and  this movement has continued  to.thc point where many, many  fine farming areas have retreated into solitude, and the  wonderful homes that housed  happy and healthy families are  now forlorn and deserted.  Il took just about two  generations of industry, mobility, and aspirations toward  urban affluence to disintegrate  sopie of the nation's finest old  families that had been centuries  in; the making in the countries  to be presumptuous to say that  the greatest sufferers in this  new society are the children���  the sweet and innocent young  human beings about whom our  Lord Jesus said: "Let the  children come to me, and do  not hinder them, for to such  belongs the kingdom of God."  Luk 18:16, 17.  Nor docs it seem to be  unlikely to suggest that these  young, helpless creatures, who  are dependent upon us for their  very sustenance, also deserve  the very best instruction in how  to develop into adults, with the  knowledge and initiative to use  their gifts and talents and  potential in the fullest possible  manner.  Here is where today's society  bogs down!  Children learn by example,  from the moment they begin to  make sense of the shapes and  objects around them, and they  feel the atmosphere in which  they live with intuition long  before they can analyze it.  Three meals a day in a loving  family circle, with all members  of the family present are worth  a million times more than all  the chemical wonder foods  served them by a baby-sitter or  ot'Aheir origin ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ;rThe shattering of the family p'her surrogate mother in the  ujjjt,  augmented  by a vast isolation of their nursery,  pljfmissiveness in societal ac-      I" sheer irony, the areas of  distance of divorce, unmarried  the  world today  where the  .'���(habitation, manipulation of  children, etc. has resulted in a  society where there are such  slr'ange new terms as "single  parent families," "cooperative  parenting," "contractual child  raising," and hosts of others.  It would be folly to attempt  to draw any conclusions about  t'tiis great, brave new society of  ours, and an even greater folly  to suggest a return to the "good  old days" of the family, where  there was a mother and father  and children, living together  iuul sharing the rewards and  penalties of life.  ! However, il does not appear  family units continue to remain  as viable entities, are to so-  called "disadvantaged countries," where the living stan-  ards are quite untenable for our  affluent society.  Even more ironical, from the  standpoint of the world's  churches, is the fact that these  "disadvantaged nations," are  staging a joyous and exciting  era of booming Christianity,  the like of which has never been  seen before in the history ofthe  world. Church worship is being  augmented by home devotions  on a scale that has never been  so prevalent since the birth ol  nist retires  j      Lloyd Yorkston  '.following Sunday's Gibsons  United Church service, a  function in the church hall  honored   retiring  organist  ROMAN CATHOLIC  I SERVICES  Rev, Angelo De Pompa,  r Parish Priest  Times uf Masses  Saturday, 5:titi p.m.  St. Mary's, Gibsons  Ki'nuliir Sundu> Masses  9:00 a.m. Our l.adyol Lourdes  Church, Sechelt  Indian Reserve  ,10:00 a m.

Would it be too presumptuous to suggest that the  common denominator, thc  spiritual adhesive which is  necessary to hold any so' -tal  unit together, might be found  in the church?  Would it be daring to say  that the family, which has a  tremendously wide spectrum of  interests to draw upon today,  could meet with one mutual  interest in the exploration of  the Christian faith?  This is not to suggest that all  members of the family would  be equally informed in their  faith, or even that all would  have faith, but it does suggest  that there would be an alliance  of interest upon which to build  some greater understanding,  mutuality of effort, and maybe  even produce a by-product of  love.  There is a movement today,  praise God, back toward  Sunday schools, and some  churches have experienced  dramatic growth in this area of  thc church. Unfortunately, in  so many instances thc parents  have never experienced Sunday  School themselves and have-  never darkened thc door of a  church, so they don't know  how to share the experience  their children are enjoying, and  often wind up downgrading  what thc children have learned.  Even in thc case of the  dedicated parents who say "I  don't know anything about it,  bin I want my children to have  a chance lo make up their  minds," the parents are still  unable lo share the experience  fruitfully and joyfully without  doing something about learning themselves.  Il would seem that this  brings us back to the matter of  teaching by example, and here  it would seem that it isn't  enough to expose Ihe children  to any facet of life, including  religion, but to offer them some  example lo follow.  It would seem then that thc  example which is set to our  children should be good,  should be informed, and  should be wise and generous  enough to give them a chance  to make up their own mind, no  matter what Ihe subject.  And a good common ground  is at Calvary, before thc cross  of Christ!  Regional  Continued from Page One.  concerned, this is the worst  possible way to go about this  and I really deplore the way Joe  is blackmailing the board."  "It worked with King John,  Harry," Director Harrison  replied.  Considerable heated discussion followed, during which  Area F Director David Hunter  suggested that the APC's be  made up of community members on a rotating basis.  "You've got people on your  APC who've been there since  thc thing began. Your problem  is your APC, I agree with  Director Goddard," Hunter  said, "You ought to consider  incorporation and elect your  people."  Director Harrison suggested  that a recommendation be  made to the board that all  planning matters be referred to  the Area Director and the APC  concerned prior to Planning  Committee or Regional Board  meetings. Harrison also suggested that the results of such  meetings be returned to the  APC for further consideration  and compromise.  "There's nothing wrong with  Joe's proposal," said Director  Ed Nicholson, "If our policy  has broken down or is unclear  wc must make it clear. How  ever, the board cannot be  bound by decisions of an APC  because it would be an abrogation of our responsibilities  under the Municipal Act."  Director Harrison's recommendation was endorsed by the  committee and chairman Ed  Nicholson again queried Director Harrison on the subject of  the recommendations awaiting  his signature.  "I think we have answered  your concerns," Director Nich-  olson said, "I ask you now what  Coast News, May 27, 1980  possible objection you have to  signing these papers."  "I'll see it in writing,"  Director Harrison replied, as  he again declined to sign.  Directors Nicholson and Lee  raised the possibility that the  board may be able lo circumvent Director Harrison's  refusal to sign by means of a  special dispensation from the  Minister of Municipal Affairs.  How long it would lake o  obtain such a dispensation has  not been determined.  15.  886-7454  'U*4w (h* OrtM Cm*. _ "  ���m ��� Mir Plata  CONGRA TULA TIONS  (Opening Sal., May 31,1980)  f Utrol \s I  JO & c/K unsfauLcdianA  CARPET, TILE ft SHEET VINYL  tP.O.

Ryan requested anyone who  was interested to contact  Steve S8wyer at 885-2691.  Race organizers are particularly interested in getting  help from CB 'ers or the loan of  CB equipment in their efforts  to ensure the maximum safety  conditions. People with equipment who are interested in  helping or have equipment  which they can loan should  contact Steve Sawyer at the  above number.  The Second Grand Prix will  be held over the same course  as last year with the event  being co-sponsored by Labatts  Brewery and Super-Valu.  Tony Tyler will be running the  Cmmn'.

Coast News, May 27, 1980  Profiles of this place  A grand old salt  by John Moore  It' you look long and hard  these days you might find a  handful of old sailors who  learned their cralt in wooden  ships under sail, but men who  mastered thc great ships of thc  Age of Sail are fewer and  farther between as the Atomic  Age supplants event the Age of  Steam. Captain Herbert Raby  of Gibsons is one of that  vanishing breed.  Born in 1896 on Piel Island  off thc coast of Lancashire, and  raised on nearby Roa Island,  he's known how to swim and to  sail for as long as he can  remember. Most of his male  relatives and ancestors were  Maslers or Pilots of vessels and  in I9I0. at the age of fourteen,  Herbert Raby followed suit and  went to sea as an ordinary  seaman.  the street. The fellow who'd  been watching walked over and  offered her his co. t."  Captain Raby has seen his  share of strange sights while  making a career of crossing the  world's oceans.  Becalmed in the doldrums,  Captain Raby says they used to  estimate thc direction a wind  would come from by the  movement of porpoises. "If  you had a school of porpoises  playing about the ship, as they  often did, you watched to see  which direction they went when  they moved off. Your wind  would always come from that  direction."  In the course of his career,  spanning two World Wars,  Captain Raby was torpedoed  several limes. "There's an  awful shock when a torpedo  hits," he says, "Once I was  coming onto the bridge just as  Capt. Raby pictured at his home in Gibsons.  Working aloft, he says,  "took a bit of getting used to,  but when you did it was the best  view in the world. The ship  always looked so long and  narrow from up there." Living  on hardtack and salt beef "like  mahogany" he studied by  paraffin lamp when he was off  watch and in I9I7 joined the  Standard Oil-owned ship,  "Drumeltan" as her Second  Officer. The "Drumeltan" was  a 3,000 ton barge, (a picture of  her appears, courtesy of thc  Captain, in the August 7, 1979  issue of the Coast News,) and  she sailed from New York with  cased oil bound for Australia,  China and Japan.  Even into the 20th century,  the "Drumeltan" had no  auxiliary motors and depended  entirely on the wind for her  power. Still, she could do 12  knots and surpass the speed of  many steam-driven ships. In  1921, Captain Herbert Raby  became her master. In 1923 the  barque arrived at Japan just  after the majorearthquake that  struck the islands in that year.  "All of Yokohama and part  of Tokyo were knocked completely flat," Captain Raby  says. It was absolute chaos.  They couldn't bury the dead,  they just piled up the bodies,  poured crude oil over them and  burned them. We were held  there for months unloading a  little at a time. A man who was  on thc waterfront at thc time of  the quake said he looked across  the street and saw the Oriental  Hotel simply collapse on itself.  They built with brick in those  days, but the buildings weren't  reinforced. The funny thing  was, as the Hotel collapsed, a  woman still in her bathtub shot  out and landed in the middle of  we were hit. I looked at the  helmsman, who was still holding the wheel, but the wheel had  been sheared off the post. In the  first war they were a lot more  polite about it. The submarines  would surface and warn you to  get off in the boats before they  sank your ship.  In the second war they'd hit  you at any time of the day or  night with no warning. The last  time was the worst, off Ireland,  in the middle of the night and  the middle of a snowstorm.  Luckily we were only a few  days in the boats, but still only  the older men survived it."  In his 84 years, Captain Raby  has been, in his own words, "In  just about every country in the  world that has a seaport." The  sea is supposed to be a lonely  life and 1 asked the Captain if  he'd ever found it so.  "Never," he said categorically. "Everywhere we went I  went ashore and visited some  local point of interest and I  always met interesting people."  Some of those include a former  head of British intelligence in  Russia and a President of the  U.S.S.R.  "We were in the Russian port  of Batum," Captain Raby says,  "when I noticed that all the  women were out cleaning up  the streets. The whole town was  being tidied up. It turned out  that the President, Kalinin, was  coming. When he arrived, he  came down to the docks and  they closed off the whole  waterfront. Even the company  people from Standard Oil  couldn't get in. I was standing  at the head of the gangway with  Ihe mate when Kalinin came  past. He stood there looking up  at the ship. She was beautiful  then; looked just like a yacht.  So I told the mate to go down  and see if he'd like to come  aboard. As it turned out hedid.  The only problem was, in the  cabins you could hardly sit  down it was so crowded. He  brought all his big bodyguards  with him."  "The funniest story about  Batum," Captain Raby says,  "is about the time the Russians  decided to go on daylight  saving time like the rest of the  world. Well, they all put their  clocks ahead alright, but when  it came time to put them back,  somebody forgot to send  permission to change thc clocks  in Batum. So there they sat,  waiting for word from Moscow, running an hour ahead of  thc rest of the world when  towns ten miles away were back  on the right lime and everybody too scared to just change  the clocks or even point out the  error to anyone in authority.  The worst of it was, it didn't get  light in Batum 'til about 8  o'clock or so, and thc Soviets  were saving electricity, so thc  power went off at six. They  were sitting in the dark for a  long time."  Among the other interesting  people Captain Raby has met  over the years is Father Alguey,  who was head of the Manila  Observatory in the Phillipines.  "The observatory was  founded by the Jesuits during  the Spanish occupation, and  when the Americans took over,  they didn't interfere. They just  let them keep doing their work.  That observatory has done  more than any other organization to chart the China Seas  cyclones. They have a seismograph there to chart volcanic  activity and in fine weather, if  there's no eruptions, the line is  completely flat. But when the  south-west monsoons come,  the line has a steady wave in it  that's caused by nothing but  waves pounding against the  island."  The Captain has always been  interested in people and places.  "For years," he says, "we  sailed to India and Pakistan  and one thing I always wanted  to see and never did, was the  Indian Rope Trick. One evening in Madras I was having  dinner with our Insulation  Manager, Dick Watson, and I  asked him if he'd ever seen it.  He said he had. He said a fakir  and his boy assistant had  gathered a small crowd, then  Jhe old boy threw a rope  straight up in the air and it  hung there by itself. The boy  climbed up the rope and  disappeared. "You saw this"? I  asked him. 'Just as sure as I'm  sitting here,' he said. It wasn't  Celanese  FRINGED  3 sizes  ft many designs,  both Traditional  ft Contemporary.  Carpet  New Hours.

Send your entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons. Last  week's winner was Vickie Harding of Port Mellon who correctly identified and located the dam  on the Rainy River in Port Mellon.  until I met a man who'd studied  psychiatry at Johns Hopkins  that I heard a proper explanation for it. His professor had  been very interested in hypnotism, mostly to debunk spiritualists, but he once saw thc  Rope Trick himself. He was  just as sure as Dick that he'd  actually seen the boy climb the  rope and disappear, but he'd  also carried a concealed camera  with him and when the film was  processed there was nothing on  it but the astonished faces of  the spectators. Neither the rope  nor the boy had moved during  the whole performance. That  was why the fakirs could never  do it in front of a large  audience. They couldn't hypnotize that many people."  Captain Raby moved to  Gibsons in 1951 and spent the  next few years skippering ships  ofthe Blackball Line that then  served the coast. He later  returned to the sea to command  the Duncan Bay, a 20,000 ton  ship carrying pulp from  Duncan Bay on Vancouver  Island to Antioch, California.  Today, in his eighties, he lives  with his wife in their house on  Bals Lane, which he largely  rebuilt, inside and out, himself.  His health is not as good as it  once was and he hasn't been  out of the house this year.  "When I was young 1 was  very strong," he says, "when I  was a male. I came on deck  once and some sailors were  having an argument about the  weight of an anchor shackle  that was lying on the deck.  They asked me how heavy it  was and I said I didn't know,  but I thought about 120 lbs.  They said it had to be heavier  than that because not a man  aboard could lift it. So I picked  it up and raised ii over my head  twelve times. I was once cut up  quite badly by a sailor with a  knife when I was seventeen, but  I never had any trouble with  thai crew."  Though he has been all over  the world, Captain Raby is  content to stay in Gibsons.  "People often ask me where  in the world I'd choose to live  and they're surprised when I  answer 'Gibsons'. But with this  view of the sea and thc  mountains, always changing  with thc light and thc weather,  where else do you need to go?"

NEW HOME PRICES LIKELY TO JUMP  The price of new homes in Canada will rise between seven and eight per  cent, said Keith Paddick, President of the Housing and Urban Development  Association ol Canada.  The 1980 increase, he predicts, is likely going to be on the low side in  Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba but on the high side in Alberta and B.C., with  B.C. potentially the highest, perhaps to exceed the 8%.  Paddick's reasoning is that a build-up in customer demand, a serious rental  shortage and a tight supply ol serviced land exist in B.C. Builders in Alberta  have the land, but face a serious labour shortage, he said.  On the positive side of the housing outlook says Edmonton based Paddick, a  levelling olf in lumber prices brought on by the U.S. construction slowdown,  and a levelling of spiralling land prices in some areas, are expected. He added  that land costs could take off again unless municipalities plan now to ensure  sufficient serviced land is available when the current supply is used up.  Meanwhile, the 7 to 8% increase in new house prices anticipated by builders  could translate differently once those houses come on the market. Paddick  said that buyer resistance, brought on by high interest rates, could force lower  prices through reduced profit margins.  .ANI.orV!
