Array 1  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS  VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  May 23, 1978  Volume 31, Number 21  Incineration  is possible  The Public Utilities Committee of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board beard a presentation from a company in the business  of supplying incineration units for solid waste disposal, along  with presentations from concerned citizens of the Sunshine  Coast, al their meeting held on Thursday, May 18.  Representing Wilder Waste Control Systems was Frank  Zurlinc, He told the Public Utilities Committee that Wilder  Waste Control Systems hud installed incineration units in many  parts nl the United States and Canada including units at nearby Bellingham, Washington and at the Royal Victoria Hospital  in Victoria. B.C. Besides voluminous printed material on the  types of units available. Zurline presented a seven-minute film  which gave an overview of this type of waste disposal.  He urged the Regional Board to visit Bellingham, Washing-  tun along with such members of the public as were interested  and sec first hand the cleanliness and efficiency of the incineration. Zurline also pointed out that in the summer months  100% of the heating needs of the Royal Victorian Hospital  is supplied by super-heated steam created by the incineration  of solid wastes. "One ton of what we call garbage," said Zurline. "is the equivalent of sixty gallons of fuel oil, a factor  which will conic lo have increasing importance."  Insofar as pollution control   meaningful  recycling,"   said  is concerned. Zurlinc pointed  out that the incineration unit  in Victoria is right by the  hospital and there has been  absolutely no problem with  pollution from the unit.  Regional Director George  Gibb. whose responsibility  it is to oversee solid waste  disposal on the Sunshine  Coast, envisioned an incinerator at the top of the hill in  Gibsons. "We could supply  energy for the swimming pool,  Ihe industrial park, the high  school, and the mall if we went  about it the right way,"  said Gibb.  Director Charles Lee  commended Director Gibb  for the amount of research  he had done in the matter of  waste disposal. "If I was  ever to run a business again I  should certainly like to hire  him," said Lee.  a spokesman. "Let's make  recycling a priority and after  we have found how much is  left over then we should take  a look at the technological  solutions of waste disposal.''  Bruce Moseley of Roberts  Creek pointed out that whatever system we had for waste  disposal, whether sanitary  landfill to pollution control  standards, or incineration,  would cost more than we were  paying for the present inadequate landfill sites.  The man in charge of the  waste disposal sites locally,  Dick Derby, contributed to  the discussion by pointing out  that Pender Harbour was  not being included in the  deliberations. Derby said that  the present Pender site had  at most about a year and a  half of useful life as a landfill waste disposal site before  At Gibsons Council  Pub applications aplenty  Sechelt businessman Haydn Killam prepares to hit the water. Killam took his  place on the dunking stool during the festivities last weekend with this inevitable  result.

"You'd  dents of Roberts Creek whose  briefs were reported in last  week's paper. Generally  speaking they stressed the  need to determine exactly  how much and what kind of  garbage we were producing.  "The decisions made now  could condone consumerism  and waste in our society for  the next thirty years if we  don't    move    toward    some  best  think  about   that   now  too," said Derby.  The Public Utilities Committee accepted Chairman  Morgan Thompson's suggestion that June 1 be set aside  for a special meeting to  discuss the question. It was  generally agreed that making  the right decision was more  important than haste in the  matter.  Cemetery condition bad  A protest from the Reverend T.Nicholson over the  condition of the Seaview  Cemetery was received  at the Regional Board.  The Reverend Nicholson  pointed out that before a  recent burial, "I found a new  ly dug grave, right on the  route that would be taken by  the mourners, unable to go  any other way, with a 'cave-  in' at the corner, exposing,  thanks be to God, not the  coffin, but a hole reaching  down to its depth  Henry Hall was present  at the Sechelt Council chambers on Wednesday, May 17  as the representative of the  property owners in Porpoise  Bay.  In a prior meeting Council  had instructed the parties  concerned about the future  of the head of Porpoise Inlet to strike a committee and  bring back their findings.  Hall's contention was that this  committee had not yet been  struck, and he felt that the  time was right for the property  owners to appeal to Council  separately, and ask that they  allocate $3,000 for an environmental study.  Mel Jager, the secretary  of the Marsh Society was on  hand, and explained that the  reason no committee had yet  been formed was that some of  the key figures were temporarily unavailable and her society could not give sufficient  input without them.  It had been Council's impression that there would be  no commitment on their part,  financial or otherwise until  the various parties had something concrete to show them.  Alderman Thompson made a  motion that the Clerk write to  the Marsh Society, the property owners, the Regional  Board, the Indian Band, the  Environment Canada and the  appropriate provincial agency  inviting them to a factfinding meeting. From the  government agency Council  hopes to find out whose jurisdiction the area can be put  under.  Mr. Joyce outlined to Council the plans for business  complex proposed for the property on Cowrie Street adjacent to The Dock. Council  was receptive to the idea,  providing the required ease-  ment is allowed for. The'abn-''  ing certificate is also dependent upon the inspection and'  approval from the Department  of Highways.  Hayden Killam asked for  permission to post restricted  parking signs at the front of  his new extension, across  from the RCMP station. Since  opening he has been running  into difficulties with angle  parking as the vehicles  protruded onto the pavement.  Signs indicating a time limit  and requesting that motorists parallel park were given  approval.  A letter was received from  the municipality of Peach-  land, asking Council to give  its support to them over what  they felt to be an unfair  increase in the school taxes.  The Clerk was instructed to  answer favourably.  By-Law 180 ��� the extension to the Trail Bay Mall ���  is still awaiting approval.  Written confirmation from the  property owners is required,  guaranteeing that the road  will be constructed on the west  end of Toredo Street.  The members of Council  agreed to fly to Victoria on  June 6 to hold a meeting with  Mr. Wilkins, the executive  director of highway planning  to discuss what thev have  scheduled for this area.  Beer has taken the attention of the Council at recent planning  meetings. Sergeant Ron Nicholson of the Gibsons RCMP detachment, told Council that only three beer garden licenses can  be issued in a calendar year for recognized regular community  events. Further discussion brought the decision to continue lia-  son between the Village planning consultant and the RCMP  when any proposed liquor outlets are under consideration.  Two more Murine public house proposals have reached Council ��� the number altogether now four. John Smith plans a pub  in a second storey addition to the present Smitty's Marina building. George Giannakos and Norman Peterson presented a proposal for a marine pub in the space now used by Butler Realty in  the Omega Restaurant Building. Mr Giannakos plans to purchase three lots on the waterfront immediately to the south of  the Omega. Robert Reid told Council that he and his partner are  prepared to waive any foreshore rights their property ��� the old  pool hall ��� may have to assist the Village Marina development.  In the marina committee report in Tuesday's meeting Council  was reminded that Chevron has a short term lease on Water lot  6030 which is in front of Hills Machine shop and in the general  area of the alternate site of the marina. Interior West Consultants representing All Sports Marine in their proposal for a marine pub attended the Planning Committee meeting of May 15  as a follow-up to their prc-clearance by Liquor Control and Licensing for a marine pub. All Sports Marine, owned by Mr. and  Mrs. Janowskv and their three sons, has had proposals before  Council for a building development onthe site since 1976. Craig  Harrold of Interior West stated that in August 1976 he had been  advised by then Mayor Labonte and Alderman Metcalfe that if  redevelopment on All Sports Marine site was of high quality,  parking requirements might be over-looked. The plan that was  then submitted to Council was rejected owing to site over-build.  Then in 1977, an application for a class A pub license was rejected by Liquor Control. At present All Sports Marine is considering a pre-cast concrete structure that would support a parking level. Council will hold a public meeting for discussion of a  location for a liquor dispensing establishment in Lower Gibsons.  Sea Cavalcade program proposals were outlined by Sue  Rhodes. Starting Friday, August 11 with the arrival of the  navy and finishing off Sunday  with aquatic sports, the time  between will be filled with a  variety of activities. The Captain Cook theme will be used  in the best-decorated boat  contest. Fireworks, a parade  Saturday morning, distance  bicvele race, a street fair ���  food and craft booths ��� a soap  box derby, a fly-past, car rally,  arm wrestling, bingo, pet  show and pony rides, crossbow demonstration, a poster  contest sponsored by Smitty's  Marina. Reno night and a barbecue on the wharf, baseball,  a teen dance ��� presently looking for a sponsor ��� children's  fish derby, a Driftwood Players production are all proposed    for    the    Cavalcade  *"-.

There have been two speed  limit changes to the signpost in  the Davis Bay area. On entering Davis Bay the limit is now  SO kmh. and there is also a  JO kmh limit in the school area.  With the summer coming on.  the Gibsons RCMP wish to remind motorists that when a  trailer is being towed it must have  ihe proper license plates affixed.  The fine for not observing is the  same as driving with no insurance ��� an automatic $250. and  should an accident occur there is  no coverage.

INSIDE THIS WEEK  Sunshine Coast  Hospitality Directory  Page Ten  TIMBER DAYS  Pictures  and  winners  Page Nine  Area E Director. George  Gibb. briefed Council on refuse disposal methods, their  costs, benefits and disadvantages. He suggested Council  consider giving some direction  to their rep on the Regional  Board before the special meeting on refuse.  Council will invite an experienced engineering firm to  tell them what the consulting  fee will be to do preliminary  investigation and drawings for  Phase 1 of the Gibsons portion  of the proposed marina and  other boat launching facilities.  If the fee is within the Council  budget. Council will engage  the firm. Victoria Engineering  of North Vancouver to do this  work on the alternate Marina  site and on the boat launch  area. Victoria Engineering has  planned and constructed marinas in Powell River. Esqui-  malt and in other places in  B.C. Eventually the alternate  site, which does not include  Armours Beach, could have an  esplanade, road access, facilities for boaters, and breakwaters extending 1700 feet  from shore to protect the 350  boat moorage.  Mayor Blain has announced  a conference, sponsored by  Kiwanis and the RCMP, on  vandalism and crime prevention May 25. in the Legion  Hall. Mayor Blain offered congratulations to Alderman God-  dard on her election to the  Vice-chairman's post in the  Coast-Garibaldi Board of  Health. From the Recreation  Committee came the announcement of a community  tennis tournament May 27  and 28.  Letters to Council covered a  wide range of items. Dr. John  F. McCreary of Shoal Lookout  complained of the collection of  discarded appliances on premises near the Post Office on  Gower Point Road. Council  discussed by-laws that might  empower it to charge clean-up  of untidy premises to the individual's taxes. Once embarked, however, on a cleanup campaign based upon announced standards of tidiness.  Council will surely find itself  re-arranging innumerable sec-  lions of the Village. Untidy  parks, abandoned buildings,  streets that serve as storage  lots for trailers, boats, and  piles of unused building materials will all be pointed out  to the by-law enforcers. One  taxpayer remarked that the  display of kitchen appliances  in ihe yard in question looked  as good as any pop art show he  had seen in Ihe Vancouver Art  Gallery.  Ihe Council agreed to accept the suggestion from residents of a cul-de-sac off Glass-  ford Road of llieir choice of  name. The street will now be  culled Maplcwood Road or  Lane. Mrs. Hilda Lee. Sea-  view Road, asked for some  maintenance on the steps to  Jack's Lane to make ihctn  safe.  Their quest for land 10 build  upon and lo provide space for  a garden may be over for Ihe  Retarded Children's Association. The Village offers them  Ihe use of properly adjacent to  Harmony Hall on a Sl-a-year  lease. Any building the association erects must meet municipal standards and will be  municipally owned,  A taxpayer told the Coast  News that il would help if the  garbage truck was fitted to  play tunes along the street like  the ice-cream van. It would remind people of the day and allow them lo keep their garbage clear of dogs and crows  by carrying it out to the street  just before Ihe arrival of the  truck.  mm  Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  wtmaminmmBi&mmKM Coast News, May 23,1978.

In such cases only  fools or the irresponsible make decisions  lightly. With this in mind we must commend the regional board for the thoroughness with which they are debating  the question of solid waste disposal. In  particular, we would second the commendation made by Director Charles Lee of  the work (lone by Director George Gibb.  At first when the solid waste disposal  question was being discussed this year  there was a feeling on Ihe board that,  since they had had a grant of $50,000  from the Pollution Control Board for  two years, they had better get the decisions made and get the matter out of the  way. Director Gibb did not take a popular  position when he insisted on considering  incineration as a possible alternative.  The first presentations he made to his  fellow directors were not greeted warmly.  George stuck to his guns however and the  mood of "Let's get it over with" seems  now to be past. It is generally felt that  the right decision is more important than  a quick decision and. as the delegation  from Roberts Creek justly pointed out  the decision reached now will affect our  communities for the next thirty years.  George Gibb feels strongly that when  the costs of adequate sanitary land  till   and   incineration   arc   compared   it  will be found that incineration will prove  of long run economic benefit, particularly  when much of what we throw away or  bury can supply energy for light industry  and public buildings. Without being  alarmist he points out that the problems  of methane gas released by decomposing  garbage are very real and that methane  gas explosions are far from unknown.  It is safe to say that the cost of fuels for  energy will not diminish in our life times  and if what we discard can in fact be used  to supply some of our energy needs then  it is both short-sighted and irresponsible  not to consider the alternative very  carefully indeed. It would appear from  last Thursday's meeting that the regional  directors are now prepared to so consider  it.  What the outcome of their deliberations will be no one can say, but, again,  Director Gibb deserves great credit for  persevering with his persuasion of his  colleagues until the matter got a thorough  consideration. And the board as a whole  must be complimented for the thoughgful  responsibility and openness to new ideas  that they are now showing. Last Thursday's Public Utility Committee meeting  may in the long run prove to be a very  important one for the Sunshine Coast.  It was also extremely gratifying as an  exercise in democratic decision making  and public input and did credit to all  concerned.  Of fact and fiction  Just a couple of things we would like  to share with you this week about 2,4-D.  First from Greenpeace comes a little  pamphlet which claims a victory for that  organization. "B.C. Hydro has announced a ban on the use of 2,4-D,"  asserts the environmental group. That  must surely come as news not only to  the public that Greenpeace seeks to inform and solicit funds from, but to the  Power Corporation as well. Was it not  just ten days or so ago that they were  among us informing us that they fully  intended to start spraying again in July.  More fiction on pesticides.  And speaking on fictions, you may  have noted that as reported in the Coast  News two weeks ago, the B.C. Medical  Association has taken a position against  the sue of the herbicide. The report was,  of course, labelled fictitious by the representatives of B.C.Hydro when they  were up here. Between the claims of  Greenpeace on the one hand and B.C.  Hydro on the other we are faced with  some considerable difficulty in establishing what is fact and what is fiction.  There is much that none of us knows  about 2,4-D. The claims made, however,  about its harmlessness can be gauged for  accuracy by what little we do know. The  best publicized opponents claim it is  banned: the proponents of its use label  as fictitious that doctors oppose it. Both  claims arc blatantly false.  It is obvious that what must be done is  continued research with the use of the  herbicide disallowed until all reasonable  doubts arc resolved. At the present time  it is favoured by governments because  it is inexpensive in the short run, and  favoured by chemical companies because  they sell a lot of it. We would suggest  all those who are even remotely concerned attend the Community Forum  being planned at Elphinstone this  weekend. It behooves us to inform ourselves since the sources of information  available to us seem, at the least, unreliable.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons branch of O.A.P.O. approaches the Municipal Council with  a view to leasing the land in the  Franklin-Burns-Trueman Roads area  so that they can establish a club  house and a bowling green in the  area.  Sechelt Council tightens control  over subdivisions. It was confirmed at last week's meeting that  backers of subdivisions in the village  will have to conform to regulations  as regards lo water supply and  drainage in future.  10 YEARS AGO  Premier W.A.C.Bennett, Hon.  Wesley Black, Hon. Waldo Sklll-  ings. and Hon. Isabel Dawson officiated during the inaugural run of  the Sunshine Coast Queen last week  at Langdale.  The first time the Sunshine Coast  Queen docks at Langdale a truck  has its front wheels stranded when  the apron on the ferry slip ramp  did not rest on the deck of the ferry.  Fire causes considerable damage  at Brian's Drive-in therefore causing  a two week closure.  15 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's fifteenth annual Timber  Days draws hundreds of people to  Hackett Park.  Pollution board members choose a  nine-acre site for the location of  Gibsons new Garbage Dump.  Controversy has arisen as to where  the headquarters of the proposed  Public Health Unit covering the  area from Powell River to Pember-  ton should be located. A Coast  News editorial calls for its location  in Gibsons.  20 YEARS AGO  A burial service was held for Sydney Arthur Holland, a resident of  Gibsons since 1912. Mr. Holland  operated several grocery stores in  the area, built houses with his  brother, and was recognized as a  stalwart and upright citizen.  St. Mary's Hospial at Garden  Bay is seeking additional funds to  add to Ihe efficiency of its operation.  &A fire truck to serve the area  outside of Gibsons has been acquired.  25 YEARS AGO  The Coast News enthusiastically  greets the approaching coronation of  the Queen of england.  A new tennis court is constructed  at Kinsmen Park in Gibsons.  The Gibsons-Sechelt highways,  after delays and controversy, are to  be paved this year.  30 YEARS AGO  Dr. Robert Pearce, well-known  locally for his service at St. Mary's  Hospital in Garden Bay, reports  to the Coast News about his work as  a medical missionary in China.  School principal Elliott issues  ultimatum to school children to leave  their dogs at home.  Mrs. Patricia Wilson of Roberts  Creek, a survivor of the sinking of  the Lusitania, died recently in Van-  Mount Elphinstone, during the 1920's. Water tumbles over  ferny rock down the mountain's flank. Fifty years ago, this  waterfall on Smith Creek and another on Chaster Creek could  be seen quite clearly from anywhere along the plateau west of  Howe Sound during winter and spring seasons, their startling  white insets act*g as.rough and ready, rain gauges. The falls  are still there, but the surrounding tree growth is much heavier  than it appears here. The Chaster Creek falls are located a  bit above Elphinstone Cemetery and these a bit below the level  of the former Stoltz Shinglebolt camp. Although fashioned  from one of nature's most ephemeral materials, these falls  have remained unaltered in an ever-changing world.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  In these days when there  seems to be a proliferation  of groups demanding their  rights of one kind or another  it seems from this vantage  point that someone should  speak out for decent treatment of the language. I am  moved to this observation  by u headline in a recent  issue ul the Vancouver  Province. "Taking the 'man'  ouI of manpower" it reads.  The article Informs us that  we arc 'sexist', whatever in  God's name thai is. if we use  such words as 'manpower' or  'salesman'. I suppose these  are now forbidden as implying  something derogatory to the  female ��� is it slill permissible  lo refer to fcmnlcs or am I sexist'.' - members of society.  The must recent message is  contained in something called  "Without Bias a Guidebook  for Non-Discriminatory Communication."  One grows weary of the  whole thing. Already bedevilled with awkward utterances such as 'Chairperson',  'Aldcrpcrson', and the like  one would like to call a hall  to this nonsense. It is absurd.  This particular linguistic  emperor has no clothes, let the  cry go forth'. If one call avoid  spluttering in impatient indignation lung enough to make  sense one would point out that  the words 'chairman', 'alderman', 'salesman', 'manpower' and so forth are descriptions of functions and properly  regarded the function is performed irregardless of the sex  of the fuuclinncr. Whatever  real or imagined wrongs are  suffered by womenfolk will not  be rectified by their fostering  upon us linguistic absurdities.  If it is doubted that such  concerns are absurd, consider the lengths to which  we must go if wc would  seek consistency in our  language. Are we now to  refer to our species as  personkind? Must we refer  to ourselves as Huperson  Beings. Are the females  among us to be referred  to as wopcrsons. Il is all  just too silly. If in fact society  has reached a stage where  the relationships between  male and female arc to  undergo a searching analysis  and re-evaluation, so be it.  But it will not be accomplished with this superficial  fervour about verbal tags. If  it is a large cause with just  roots let it be so treated.  At the moment, besides the  gross and absurd dis-servicc  being perpetrated upon our  means of communication,  it rather smacks of putting  wallpaper over the crack on  the kitchen wall.  It is a failing of our society  that it uses language frequently to give the appearance  of understanding and communication where in fact none  exists. The corporate woods  are full of the most banal  and self-defeating forms  of jargon and verbal gobble-  dygook and it seems that  every new group which  feels it is suffering at the  hands of society as a whole  must invent its own particular form of militant noncommunication. If this keeps  up we'll all be sitting  around     bleating     vaguely  familiar sounds at each other  in smaller and smaller righteous and misunderstood  groups until we have re-  cnaetcd in suitable dimension  for the modern era the Tower  of Babel.  If we are to be more understanding of human differences, and here I would present no argument, it will have  to be done at a more meaningful level than the verbal. To  bend and twist the language  when your target is the human  heart is to miss the point entirely. Militant mouthings of  whatever newspeak is currently fashionable does nol lusting  tolerance make. What is  needed, surely, is meaningful  dialogue and whether such is  possible without a proper respect for the language is surely debatable.  Admittedly the language  must change, does change,  will change. One docs not  object to the change in language. But when it is taken by  the neck and forced into new  shapes, when strident pressure groups try to change  how we think by raping the  language rather than by  appeal to reason 1. for one. am  merely irritated and offended.  Further in a world where  giant supertankers rush  towards the disaster that  everyone knows is inevitable,  when the government of the  most powerful country in the  world is preparing the neutron  bomb which will wipe out the  sexists and their opponents  alike and make coming out of  the closet seem like a mistake,  when, in a starving world, we  are flooding our farm lands or  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  There is a growing amount  of evidence that the lQ70's  is a period of reaction and  retrenchment agains the liberalism of the bO's. Social freedom gained by women in  particular is being condemned  by writers and the hard-  earned gains of the women's  movement are being attacked  by the most negative elements  of society,  The author of a book called  Marriage, the Main Cause oj  Divorce, was on the radio the  other day arguing that Canadian women were unfeminine  because they were too assertive: thai women should be  trained from youth in the  womanly arts of taking care of  men and their homes; that education after the age of thirteen was wasted on women;  that any woman who wants a  career shouldn't get married;  that wives who worked only  did so to supplement their  husbands' wages and were  socially irresponsible. The  author, a man. implied that  strength, character, initiatie,  strength, character, initiative, intelligence, courage,  ambition, and wisdom were  exclusively male qualities and  that a woman who exhibited  these qualities was a sad and  pathetic creature who was not  only harming herself but the  men in her life as well.  That such bigoted nonsense  can be uttered in this day and  age is sad, but not particularly surprising. That this  kind of attitude is given a  platform of a radio station is  unfortunate, but again, not  amazing. But that the majority of callers who commented  on his remarks can support  him in often bitter and vehement acclaim is sad commentary on the depth of prejudice  and intolerance still existing  in what ought to be a progressive society.  When social progress is  gained, it is not done so  easily. In society, as in physics, there is an equal reaction  to every action. Women's  attitudes are different now  than they were ten years ago.  Girls in school are often the  most eager to pursue careers,  and often the best prepared.  They also arc providing much  more of the leadership in  classrooms and school life  generally. In business, women are less often providing a  cheap labour pool, less often  passively accepting the leadership of men, less often  willing to accept jobs which  provide little opportunity for  advancement. "Good old-  fashioned girls" still exist,  but they tend to stand out not  for their sweetness or pretti-  ness or shyness but for their  lack of confidence, vacuous-  ness and cowed silence. How  these sweet ninnies were supposed to be helpmates for  their men in the old days is  beyond understanding.  The reactionaries seem to  fall into three categories. The  most bitter and vociferous  are women who were brought  up in the traditional modi.  These "ladies" (ihey don't  like to be called women)  appear to resent aggressive  women, they don't understand them and arc not  equipped to compete with  them. The more strident  clement of the women's  movement is responsible for  the existence of this group.  The revolution in the status  of women moved so fast that  il passed these ladies by  before they had a chance to  understand it. At the time,  women's libbers thought that  the slow pokes weren't  worth worrying about, but as  in all revolutions, the people  left behind have come back to  haunt.  The next group of reactionaries arc the men who are  intimidated by strong women.  Men too have been brought  up to accept the ideal of the  soft, compliant woman.  A woman with her own personal aspirations is often  beyond the understanding of  some men. Husbands, lovers,  bosses are sometimes completely unable to cope with the  independant woman and they  will end up seriously disappointed if their women don't  act like they were taught  to believe women were supposed to act.  The third group, and unquestionably the most unjustified, unconvincing  and cynical arc the politicians  who pander to an intolerant  constituency. There arc MP's  and MLA's who blame women  for ihe current state of unemployment, those who condemn day-care centres as  the cause of the decline of the  family and those who point  to birth control and abortion  as the chief enemy of western  civilization.  Why the reactionaries are  coming out of their holes now  is peculiar. When the social  debate was at its height,  they were relatively silent.  Now that this particular phase  of the women's rights movement is taking a rest and enjoying its gains, the counterattack is gaining strength.  Society would be better served  if these negative naysayers  went back to being as silent  as they were ten years ago,  and remain so until they  die off so that society can  enjoy the benefits of progress.

Music Horizon  By Mike Evans  What was the dance like?  How was the band?  This fledgling critic hopes  to deal with these questions  as they apply to the various  local and out of town bands  that entertain on the Coast.

Eclipse has changed since  the last time I saw them. They  have added lead guitarist  Russell Marsland who has  really strengthened the sound  and provided the band with  lent on keyboard. A perfect  example was the synthesizer  lead in "Lido Shuffle", Frontager did the part admirably  but the effectiveness was  hampered by the poor quality  sound.  The public address Ip.a.)  system through which the  vocals were amplified has  also seen better days. Eclipse's fine vocals were ruined  by distoriton because the  p.a. simply couldn't cope  with the volume. Even so.  I was impressed with the singing in songs like "Help Is  On It's Way" and "Nights On  Broadway". The drumming  and bass playing was pretty  well     impeccable;     perhaps  the  professional  lead  guitar   nt, drums could have been a  work that was lacking in their   |ju|c |0uder.  enough set-up and definitely  nol Ihe highball side.

Mars-  land used various special  effects, e.g. danger, echo  and talk box. to accent his  screaming polished leads.  He picked his way effortlessly through quite a variety  of songs, showing a versatile style not boasted by all  guitarists. But I wish he had  directed his talents more toward the crowd. It seemed he  played his best licks to either  the drummer or the bass player.  Most bands would have  trouble filling the large  Elphinstone gym with good  clean sound. Especially  Eclipse. The distortion was  terrible because some of their  equipment is sub-standard.  Dave Frontager's Fender  Rhodes electric piano was so  garbled it sounded like it  was being played through a  transistor radio. Reason?  His amplifier was too small  to properly handle the volume  that was needed. And it is  a shame: Frontager is excel-  IF YOU DON'T HAVE 10 INCHES*  OF INSULATION IN YOUR ATTIC,  YOU'RE LOSING HEAT AND  WASTING MONEY.  From a musical standpoint  Eclipse was excellent. A  good portion of the material  they chose was difficult so  they deserve full credit for  "sounding like the record".  The Bo/ Scaggs. Steely  Dan and Pablo Cruise numbers were particularly good  but the band's rendition of  "Happy Anniversary" was  much too fast.  From a dancing standpoint  I noticed a lot of people,  myself included. having  trouble adjusting to the many  disco selections. I guess the  Sunshine Coast is behind the  times. Maybe we should  learn to dance more to disco.  Bui one thing is for sure:  that dance Hour really livened  up when they played rock and  roll. And I think the band  recognized the superiority  of rock and roll for all out  dancing ��� the all important  last song of the night was  "Saturday Night's Alright  for Fighting".  The dance was a success  and Eclipse was even better.

Murray Watson's father,  mother, brother, sister-in-  law, and five year-old niece  came up to visit him, so  naturally it rained. While the  Watson entourage explored  the Pender Harbour area in  search of sunshine (if it isn't  shining there you might as  well put on your gumboots),  I spent most of the day in  the Sun Dispatch office at  Davis Bay, observing the  steady stream of major crises  that are standard procedure  in any taxi company. Domestic emergencies led to a shortage of drivers in Gibsons.  Driver Kathi Simpkins held  the fort, keeping the traffic  moving in spite of a very  sore arm. (Apparently an  allergic reaction to an insect  which mistook her finger for  the House Special.) Still,  the trips kept backing up and  for a minute there it looked  as though I might even have  to go to work. (Three hours  sleep the night before made  this a chancey proposition  for all concerned.)  Fortunately Clarke Wilson,  one of the latest additions  to the Coast Taxi staff, chose  that moment to drop in at  the office. "Just the man  I wanted to see," said Neil  McClardy enthusiastically.  Obviously swept away by  the warmth of this welcome,  Clarke volunteered to start  driving immediately. "Never  driven cab before, have you?"  Neil inquired. Clarke confessed to this lamentable deficiency in his education.  "Nothing to it," Neil murmured, at which point he  launched into an off the cuff  two minute lecture entitled,  "Everything you need to  Know about the Business  since you were Foolish  Enough to get Involved in  The First Place". He concluded this rapid-fire monologue with the reassuring  benedition, "Never mind,  you'll learn." Actually, he  was right. The only way you  really learn about anything is  by doing it.  Fortunately, as we discovered, Clarke was a quick  study. Neil and I took off  for Gibsons to run off some of  the trips while Clarke was  getting squared away. Halfway down the highway the  volume of rain increased so  dramatically that things were  looking like a rerun of the  Great Flood, and Neil remembered that the windshield  wipers in the car Clarke  was going to drive had chosen  that morning, of course, to  go on the fritz. Neil radioed  base to tell Clarke we'd stop  and try to fix his wipers on  our way in. "He's already  fixed them and he's underway," came the reply. "1  think we hired the right man,"  Neil said.  Our visit to Gibsons turned  out to be superfluous. Kathi  and Clarke had the situation  in hand in no time. I dropped  my spindrift pages at Coast  News office and repaired  to the Dogwood for refreshments, where 1 encountered  Ian Corrance, who'd been  out in the ruin all morning  photographing the Boy  Scouts' re-enactment of Captain Cook's landing. Indicating his wet clothes and the  pool of water accumulating  beneath his chair, he offered  an irrefutable explanation for  Cook's short stay on this  coast and preference lor the  South Pacific.  Neil and I returned to Davis Bay. having grossed a  total of $1.50 for forty odd  miles of driving. I ventured  to express my doubts about  certain economic realities of  the taxi business. "Well,"  he replied. "In a service  industry you've got to provide  service, even if it means  taking a bit of a financial  loss sometimes. Customer  satisfaction is the bottom-  line in this business. If  people have to wait two  hours in the rain, without  some logical explanation,  they're going to stop taking  taxis, period. There are times  when it's so slack that it's  not economical to keep two  cars in Gibsons or Sechelt,  yet if you only have one, and  that one gets a long trip out  of the area, you can bet  somebody's going to phone  needing a eab in a hurry.  You've got to keep them both  on, even though it doesn't  really pay. In an area like  this, where the economic  base won't support healthy  competition. a company  which has no competition has  a   special   responsibility   not  to abuse its position. You  can't refuse to take some trips  just because they don't make  a profit."  While I'm on the subject  of service, I'd like to hand out  the Angel of the Week Award.  Murray's brother Graham  stayed up to drive taxi that  Saturday night and 1 drove his  car back to the city. We were  in plenty of time for the ferry,  so wc stopped for a cup of  tea and one of those delicious  sandwiches they serve at The  Heron. The ignition key for  the car was badly worn and  it took a knack to start, so  I decided to practice, just so  wc wouldn't miss the boat.  I turned the key gently in  the lock and it twisted like  butter. Luckily it didn't  snap completely off, but it  was mangled. 1 suspected,  beyond    repair. Murray  whisked me up to Gibsons  Link Hardware in the cab  while everyone else went for  tea. The store was busy and  the lady at the counter was  alone, but she said she'd  give it a try even though she  expected the key would snap  in the vise they use to make  duplicates. I retired to a  corner and chewed my nails  up to the elbow (knowing Graham had no spare key and  having some idea of the cost  of haivng one made from  scratch), while she darted  back and forth, serving customers and trying to cut the  key. At last she handed me  a new key and said, "I can't  guarantee it, but good luck."  I raced out of the store and  didn't get her name, but 1  thought she might like to know  that it worked first time. Anyone else might have said,  "I'm too busy. You'll have to  wait until someone comes  back from coffee," or whatever and I'd have missed  the boat. Thanks very much  again. You're an angel.  First Class. Over and out.

Its director, George  Bullied, is a former heroin addict  who served time in prison for his  use of the drug.

As far as possible they are  self-supporting, growing their  own food, making their clothes,  and they've built their own solar  heated buildings and their own  windmill.  Bullied's theory is that if each  person there learns to co-operate  with others in supplying the basic  needs of life, he will become emotionally healthier.

Dumps have always held  a certain degree of mystery,  suspense, and fascination  for me. As a child. Ihe very  word conjured up hitler, pungent odours, leathery wisps  of smoke, and the chance ���  usually while on holidays in  Banff or some likewise heavily forested region, and perhaps even as close as Ihe  outstretched arm could reach,  it one could ever be so brave  and foolish as to do it ��� of  seeing real, live bears! To  check out the dump was almost as good as a trip to Ihe  zoo, only here we were Ihe  ones forced to remain in the  confines of our cages, and the  bears were the ones free to  roam and explore and gawk  al us at will.  As an adult, my appreciation of dumps has altered  somewhat, and expanded if  anything. The "bear" association is still with me, however,  albeit in a somewhat varied  form. While I usually but  don't always make a contribution when I visit the dump.  1 am constantly on the lookout  for articles in varying degrees  of usefulness and repair,  those rare and treasured  finds one makes only at the  dump ��� or perhaps at garage  sales ��� to "bear" home with  me. Rarely do I come away  empty-handed. And never do  1 fail to marvel at the number  of things which have been  discarded which still have  value, and could still be of  use.  So much brouhaha about  garbage these days ��� where  to put it, how to get rid of  it. The disposal of garbage is  definitely an issue to be considered seriously and with an  eye to the future, but perhaps we are already approaching the issue one step too  far down the line. What about  an even more fundamental  question on the subject ���  why do we have so much of  it?  Garbage is not like weeds  in your garden that spontaneously crop up and must  be gotten rid of, nor even like  dust and debris that accumu  late dropping by dropping  on the floors and window-sills  of one's home and must be  swept away. For the mosl  part, garbage is man-made,  and man-determined. The  only reason something is  garbage is because someone  has called it that ��� and has  thrown il away. An object  heretofore valued undergoes  some decline in its usefulness  and desirability, and like a  magical melamorphisis  it is transformed ill an instant ��� usually one fraught  with haste anil frustration ���  and becomes part of that  universal collective known as  garbage. To another person  (hat same garbage may still  be of use and have much  worth, and even a casual  dump scavenger has favourite tales of the unbelievably  good items that someone else  actually threw away.  Now I'm not about to recommend we start checking  through each other's garbage cans ��� although I too  have my stories of treasures  secretly gleaned from a  neighbour's discards ��� but 1  am suggesting that we give  a bit more thought tojust what  and how much we throw away.  It may well prove to be our  curse that we have developed  an expendable society, one  in which planned obsolescense is not only commonly  and openly practiced in  the manufacture of everything from a razor blade to  a car. but. even more amazingly, is also casually accepted  by the public al large. We  have come to placidly expect  that our appliances and toys  will break down after a  certain. pre-detcrmined  period of time, and as a society which also worships  convenience and instant  gratification wc arc too often  tempted to "throw it away and  buy a new one", rather than  repair what we already have.  Thus the garbage pile grows  bigger and the resources  pile shrinks away.  Having recently had to  deal with an iron that hit the  dirt one more time than it  could handle. I am aware that,  particularly here on the Peninsula, repairs often take a  long time to be completed,  and it is difficult to even  find   people   who  fix   small  r'  VARIETY FOODS     \  SNACK BAR & DELI  886-293G  .iSNACKSINTHESUN  FOODS  HEALTH   FOODS  Church 5ervices  Roman Catholic Sen ices  Rc\ r,Nicholson.

But there is a satisfaction in redeeming to usefulness an article on its way  to becoming junk, and a reward in paying a repair bill  only a percentage of the cost  of a new one. In these tight  times of high prices, even the  monetary benefits in savings  from throwing away and  replacing fewer things should  be an incentive to create less  waste.  Planned obsolescence and  our expectations of our possessions lasting only a limited  time hints at the question of  quality versus quantity.  Would you rather have  one good one to last a lifetime, or get a new. cheap  one every few years? And. of  course, do the cheap ones  work as well as the quality  ones? Finally is "new"  necessarily "belter"? There  has been a massive revival  of the antique and secondhand business, and many  people are discovering that  Ihe quality and aesthetics  built into hand-crafted tools  and items of years ago make  older articles preferable to  newer, cheaply machined  ones. Quality and durability  become the guages which  determine that some things  seem to never outlive their  usefulness, no matter how  old and worn they become.  Those arc the kinds of things  that come to be passed on  and treasured from generation  lo generation.  And then on the opposite  end of the scale we have what  is fast becoming ��� some  would say already is ���  another basic tenet of our  society: disposable is besl!  .lust what is so great about  having to throw something  away after using it once?  Of course the madness behind  it all is thai then you'll have to  buy another one ��� and so  wc create both bigger sales  for manufacturers and more  garbage. The irony of it is  that most disposables are  made of plastic, and plastic  as a material is virtually  indisposable: neither burning  away nor decomposing.  Very often what no longer is  useful to me could be a great  help to you. and I may need  just that item you've had  stored in your basement all  these years and are finally  going to gel rid of. And  bottles, jars, paper, tin ���  these have been proven to  have second-time-around  value, and wc of the Peninsula were once in the forefront in dealing realistically  with such things. But some  say we didn't think big enough  didn't take it far enough, and  so we lost it all.  Once again wc have an  opportunity to think about  garbage: or rather, we had  better think about it, because  a decision will ultimately  be made with or without our  intelligent consideration.  Many people feel weekly  garbage collection is quite  unnecessary, are most willing  to separate their garbage for  recycling, and would be only  too glad to drop off Iheir  no-longer-useful items  someplace where someone  else may find their hidden  value. Maybe if more items  were recycled and passed  around, rather than discarded, and people thought  Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  I want to look a sexy way. 1  use make up and clothes that  show my body, and I like the  effect, except lor one thing.  I can't grow long nails. 1 think  it adds a feminine look. Do you  have any suggestions. Well  Dear Well!  Of course I have! Nutrition is  one way.

Remarks  such as 'far out', 'he looks  like you', or 'what a baby' can  be used. You're not lying, but  not being a downer either.

Gibsons Auxiliary  By Marie Trainor  The regular monthly meeting  of the Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  lo St. Mary's Hospital was held  on May 3. 1978 in their meeting  room above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Store. The meeting was chaired  by Ihe President. Joan Rigby.  who welcomed Ihe thirty-three  members present.  The Quilting Bee is progressing very well and Annie Metcalfe reports that it is now about  one-quarter finished and would  welcome more sewers to join in  the group. The next Quilting  Party will be held al the home of  Annie Metcalfe on Sargent Road  on May 23 at 1:30p.m.  Monica Hautala, Director of  Junior Volunteers, reported that  an Orientation Course was held  on the first of May to introduce  the members to the various duties  they would be performing al the  hospital. Al the present time  there arc four members in this  group including one from the  Gibsons area. Since this youth  group is now open to holh male  and female persons, anyone  who is interested in this very  challenging and rewarding work  is requested to contact Mrs.  Hautala at 886-7861 and she will  be most happy to explain what is  involved in becoming a Junior  Volunteer.  Numerous knitted and crocheted baby sets were turned in  by our energetic workers, which  were completed during the month  of April by Mrs. Ethel Jones,  Mrs. Dorothy Rowland and Mrs.  more about repair than  replacement, we wouldn't  even need new dumps. Bigger thrift shops could take  care of it all!  In the final analysis, should  our civilization meet its destruction either violently  or by slow degeneration, it  may be that in 3.000 years  our garbage will provide the  only clues to the next inhabitants as to what our  world was like. Just as we  search tombs and find bones  and day pots buried in the  hills and sands of time, perhaps some future archaeologist will sift through what is  today a dump and try to  unpuzzlc the mystery of  20th century life. "Gar-  bology" is already an accepted university course, considered by those knowledgeable  to be an accurate and relevant  reflection of the state and  condition of our society.  It is to be hoped that what  we toss away and leave behind will bespeak a culture  that values quality and  selectivity, and shows an  aversion to thoughtless waste.  LaWarne. Our sincere thanks  and appreciation also goes out lo  Mrs. Ida Loulher of Gibsons, who  although nol one of our members,  nevertheless knitted and donated to the Auxiliary two beau-  tiful baby sets, which will be put  on sale in the Gift Shop.  The next meeting will be held  on Wednesday, June 7 at the  home of Mrs, Margaret Jones,  which will take Ihe form of a  luncheon and meeting combined.  Since this will be our last meeting  until September wc look forward  to a good turnout.

Joys of Feeling good  Bv D.Henn  Oh. the joys of feeling good!  There arc times when everything looks good, or at least we  are tolerant of most everything  that crosses our paths.  These days are filled with a  lust for living, a need to accomplish maximum in our activity,  a time when things miraculously  seem to go our way with little  effort. A time when difficult  relationships fail to have a negative impact on you. The world  is yours!  Most people have good days  and hopefully this has a ring of  familiarity to it. These days are  not dependent on the morning  valium or the 10 a.m. shot of  booze for these are the days  when you feel perfectly at ease  and comfortable physically and  mentally. This is an experience  of life that leads us to higher  levels of experience.  The fascinating thing about  feeling good is that it has two  essential dependents; the body  and the mind. The body we carry  around which has the ability  of sending out pleasant sensations such as comfort, ease,  energy, stability, etc., or unpleasant sensations such as  pain, roughness, dullness, anxiety, etc.. is so dependent upon  the mind for choosing which  experience the body will have.  The inter-relationship between  mind and body is truly one of the  most amazing aspects of life.  The body living under stress  or tension without having the  opportunity to discharge it  begins to show symptoms of disease: high blood pleasure, insomnia, bio-chemical imbalances,  etc. These symptoms are the  body's way of saying, "Whoa,  let's slow down and take a  look at what's happening".  This normalization takes place  both physically and psychologically. The body will and can  interpret the most subtle symptom of disease and spontaneously  make an adjustment. The necessary component here is rest and  the quality of the rest is of  utmost importance.  The development of full potential of the body begins with the  ability to eliminate all distress ���  a dis-ease which has left encumbering influence on the body  and our lives.  Full mental and physical  potential can be realized and  enjoyed on a permanent basis  by strengthening the integration  between mind and body and  Transcendental Meditation does  just that.

I  have only recentl) begun buying  and using the Daih Racing Form.  Now I'd like to learn more about  handicapping. Are there any  textbooks on the subject?"

However, a handful of general K respected handicappers,  having already proven their  expertise,   have   undertaken   to  write books that are both entertaining and instructive. They  contain no promises of "pie in  the sky*', and their methods of  handicapping can be proven valid  by anyone who wishes to take the  time to do so. Although they  differ on several points, their  handicapping systems are remarkably similar in the final  analysis.  One such writer is Thomas  Ainslic. Probably the best-  selling author ot handicapping  books, Ainslic has a number in  print. His 500-page "Ainslie's  Complete Guide it) Thoroughbred Racing", written in a style  that can be understood by the  neophyte, yet the hook contains  information valuable to the most  experienced haiulicupper. in  addition to the chapters on selection theory, the Complete  Guide serves as an excellent introduction to the sport.

VON 3A0  >���������efc���#������������������������������������������������������������  Complete Horseplayer", is  shorter (and cheaper) and contains much of the same information. A measure of the respect  that Ainslie has earned is found  in reading the works of other  authors. They invariably include  Ainslie in their bibliographies.  "Ainslie on Jockeys" is also  recommended.  Andrew Beyers, columnist for  the Washington Star-News, is  responsible for "Picking Winners", another good manual.  Beyer confesses to being a  "speed Handicapper", which is  no great sin. Speed Handicappers lean heavily to the theory  that the best indication of what a  horse will do today is found in  the running times of his past  races. Beyer makes an excellent case for speed handicapping.  Steve Davidowitz. who has  served as editor of Turf and Sport  Digest, provides what is perhaps  a more advanced text in his  "Betting Thoroughbreds: A  Professional's Guide to Playing  the Races". Davidowitz might  better he read after Beyer or  Ainslie. but is an excellent  book in itself.  Handicapping books tend to  be a little expensive. The better  ones arc printed in hardcover  only and cost $10���$20. They are  usually not available upon request in bookstores, and have to  be ordered, so it's wise to check  with a library first and sec what's  available before forking over the  hard-earned. If the library has  absolutely no books on handicapping, you can usually cajole  them into ordering at least one.  Most North American tracks  have concluded that their greatest  asset is a well-informed bettor,  and they often provide handicapping seminars right at the  track. At Seattle's Longaeres,  for example, James Selvidge,  author of "Hold your Horses",  leads bctween-race discussions,  with good response. Unfortunately. Exhibition Park has not  yet seen fit to provide its customers with anything similar.  In Vancouver, the School Board  offers a one-day course entitled "Horse Racing (Thoroughbred)". Helen Caballero is the  instructor and she offers an  excellent introduction to basic  handicapping and money management. It's next offered on  Saturday. May 27 and costs  $15.00.' The address for further  information is Community Education Services. Vancouver  School Board. 1595 West 10th.  Vancouver. It's a good value for  the dollar.  Some racegoers find it advantageous to subscribe to racing  magazines. Two good ones are  Turf and Sport Digest, and  The American Turf Monthly,  both of which are also available at some newstands. The  reader is cautioned to avert his  eyes from the advertisements for  the previously mentioned $50  magic formulae.  While books, magazines and  courses can serve as introductions to the sport and put the  bettors' handicapping methods  on the right track, handicapping  skill can only be perfected by  experience. Small wagers should  be the rule until you feel confident in your selections. None of  the recommended authors offer their readers any hope of  great wealth, instant or otherwise. I hey agree that any bettor  who. hi the long run, receives a  modest return on the wagered  dollar, is doing very well.  Headers wilh questions, comments or suggestions can write  to J.Hayes, Box 3622, Vancouver,  '(hose with a self-addressed  envelope will receive a fairly  prompt reply.  Tennis  The Elphinstone Secondary  School tennis team played host to  the New Westminster team last  Wednesday, in a semi-final zone  match. Elphinstone lost the  match 7���4 after two hours of well  played tennis. The weatherman  cooperated 100% much to the delight of the players and numerous  spectators who turned out.

Usually getting ready can be  relatively easy provided when you  returned from your last show you  thought ahead enough to polish  your boots and brush your hat  before putting them away. If  you have a show bridle have that  previously cleaned too and you  will be surprised at how much  of your time is saved. Pack a  show grooming kit with plenty  of things you might need as well  as clean brushes, lots of rags,  hoof black, hoof pick and don't  forget your First Aid kit.  Have these things all ready  to go the day before if possible  and then you will have the time  to give your horse a good bath  for there is nothing a judge notices faster than a well turned  out horse and rider no matter  how small the show.  If possible acquire a pair of  work overalls and try to keep  yourself as clean as your horse  while tacking up. etc.. and this  will also allow you to be dressed  before you ready your horse if  you aren't lucky enough to have  a patient mother or father for a  groom.  Baby oil around the eyes and  muzzle add a nice soft touch to  the face and clip his muzzle and  bridle path, cars (optional)  and that long hair on the fetlocks is a must.  Have all of your lack as clean  as possible because no matter  how old your saddle is the judge  still looks for cleanliness.  Remember your entry number  must be in sight at all times on  your back or saddle pad.

Estuary open in summer  Opening for the summer  months on Gower Point Road  is the charming little studio  belonging to Joan Warne,  called the Estuary. Joan is  preparing u> share her work  space with summer visitors  as she puts on display the  work of local painters and  craftsmen.  "I have always been convinced that the Sunshine  Coast has craftsmen second  to none." said Joan, "and I  feel that 1 would like to provide some space for our  local people to display their  wares."  Presently on display at  the Estuary are such varied  wares as the wooden toys of  Eddy Dignard of the Wood  Latch; pottery from the Eg-  mont Potters. Greg Deacon  and Jackie Laloge; John  Reeve of Cold Mountain Pottery will also have pottery on  display: the bird figures of  Sheila White which proved  so popular last year will again  be well represented this year.  The painters of the Sunshine Coast will bewell represented with such new figures  as Senje Boutilier. Karen  Morrow. George and Mildred  Doubt, and Robert Jack having   their   work   on   display.  The printed word will not  be entirely overlooked in the  displays in the Esturary.  Def  initely present will be the  books of Hubert Evans of  Roberts Creek and other  publications from Howie  White's Harbour Publishing.  Some local weaving will  also be put on display and  Jackie Laloge of Egmont has  some charming hand-made  sunbonnets which will also  be in the Estuary.  "What I want." said Joan  Warne. "is to provide a  stopping-in place to see good  craft work and a place where  mementos which are truly of  the Sunshine Coast can Unpurchased by our visitors."  Joan said that this was the  second  vear which  she  had  used her studio for this  purpose and that last year's  visitors were impressed with  the quality of the work on  display, both craft work and  line art.  The Estuary is the converted Gower Point store and  is close by the Bonniebrook  Lodge. The studio will be  open for visitors on the  weekends and in summer  evenings.  The Estuary is in a charming location and will undoubtedly prove a popular attraction  to visitors to the area as it  showcases the talents of the  artists and craftsmen among  us.

T/AW UII{lVV/;//l\VilMrf/A  A More letters to the editor  Informative  Coast News, May 23,1978  * Continued from Page Three  something good to put your  energy into. As for myself I'm  getting out of my lazy reclusive  space and more into putting  out energy. I remember Burnside  Idling me a few years ago.  "energy begets energy" and  knew what he meant, but at the  lime nothing could move me off  my slow pace.  Now having a sixteen-month  old daughter, as well as Slcph to  support, 1 no longer have a  choice. And I find myself working more and it's not so bad,  really. The Hippy space has had  ils day and there were some great  ones. I'm taking voice lessons to  get more punch and quality into  my singing and still plugging  away at my instruments. A  couple of attempts to put a band  together have been aborted but  I'm still hoping to get that  happening. Show Biz is a lot  of fun, isn't it?  Have you been doing any  plays lately? 1 have an interest in  acting and would love to try it  now. I think I'm opening up to  a lot of new things and it feels  great.  I still worship the sun and love  the warm weather down here.  Don't think I'd want to do Canada  again. Callfornians are spoiled.  I've been doing carpentry lately  and when it starts to rain you  quit working. Period. Rain  gear is something you wear when  sou sail a yacht.  Give my best to Eileen and  Nonic; Trower; Lola (yes I saw  her photo); and anyone else who  wc know mutually. And keep up  ihe good work at Coasl News.  Dave Virello,  Santa Cruz. California  Dispute  Editor:  This letter is in reference to the  labour dispute involving the fired  Bank of Commerce employees,  Carol Dulyk and Eileen Quigley,  and the support pledged to them  by,RaySkelly.  While I understand Skelly has  spoken in favour of the two per-  sons being reinstated in their  jobs I question his motives for  involvement. The reason being  dial when he was approached for  a stand in a very similar situation  in the Comox Valley he stated  lhal he wanted "to stay as far  away from it as possible."  Terry Whitlock and myself  were fired from the Merry Andrew Daycare without just cause  or a fair hearing. The parents  of the children under our care  rallied to our support. Vocally,  through letters and petitions, and  by picketing, wc requested first  re-instatement and failing that  arbitration. Our employers, the  Comox Valley Children's Daycare Board, headed by Dorothy  Skelly, denied the requests.  We took the matter to the local  labour council and justice council. Unanimously they supported  us in our bid for arbitration.  Again the board refused. Ray  Skelly as federal representative  for the N.D.P. was approached  for his support but he didn't  "want to get involved".  Yet he is involved by virtue  of the fact that he is the representative of a party that promotes a progressive policy toward the rights of workers. Furthermore, several members of  the Daycare Board are closely  connected with his campaign.  He did not say that he agreed  with the firings. He couldn't.  He was not asked to support  rc-instatcment, only neutral  arbitration. He wouldn't.  However, leaving a dispute  unsettled in the Valley he travelled to Gibsons to take a stand.  Why? Is it merely a political  tactic? I hope not. Yet, when  Skelly's actions are so contradictory they appear to me to be  governed more by whim than  policy. From my experience 1  feel he is exploiting a very  serious situation, not for labour  principle, but for votes.  Despite Skelly's position on the  matter, 1 would like Carol Dulyk  and Eileen Quigley to know that  they have my support and I  wish them luck in the fight for  their rights.  Enclosed is a photograph  taken of some parents (past and  present) on an information picket  line in front of the Merry Andres  Daycare. From left to right  there is Judith Willis, Georgina  Dankoski, and Jeanne Jackson.  Linda Foster,  Comox  Editor's Note: The following Is a  letter senl by the Gibsons Harbour Business Association to  Allen Fraser, Minister of Highways, In Victoria over Ihe reslg-  ways, In Victoria over the signatures of M.Hodson, President,  and G. Boezewlnltle, Secretary.  Dear Sir:  It has come to the attention of  the Gibsons Harbour Business  Association that there is a decided lack of informative highway signs attracting the attention  of prospective tourists to the  location of our scenic and interesting harbour village.  As is the problem with many  other areas of the province, we  arc suffering from the present  recession. Wc feel the present  sign posting (which is nonexistent) is totally inadequate.  Since the relatively new highway bypass through North Road  was provided, it is estimated  that the greater part of all traffic arriving on the Sunshine  Coast never sees our village. We  do feel a heavy vehicle alternate  route was needed, however at  the same time wc feel the Highways Department should provide  adequate tourist information as  we as a private enterprise are  not allowed to erect such signs  as should be provided.  Wc are the home of the famous Salmon Rock, the T.V.  scries The Beachcombers, and  one of the most beautiful natural  harbours on the coast. Not  only would we like to see more  tourists in our area but we feel  tch tourists would like to see us.  We would appreciate very  much your help in this matter  and look forward to your prompt  reply.  G.Boczewinkle, M.Hodson  Secretary, President  Late Soccer  .

Coast  Pender  Ratepayers  llv Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association Publicity  Committee  Beware of the Regional Review  Some months ago notice was  served in this column that we  would be hearing more of the  Regional District Review Commission. The first part of this  prediction came true May 8 in  Sechelt. where the Commission  convened to hear what local citizens and groups think about the  present system of Regional District government.  This was a relatively calm  affair with all parties agreeing on  the general desirability of regional government and scattered sug-  gestions for minor change.  News, May 23,1978.  The only complaint made by  Sechelt Council against the  District was over the way in  which village representatives  to the Board are chosen ��� by  direct election rather than by  appointment. Gibsons Council,  which might have been expected to slick a shaft to the District  as a result of past disagreements,  told the Commission, "the basic  concept of regional government,  in the case of the unorganized  areas, is fundamentally sound."  There was a bit of crossfire  between the Gibsons brief, which  urged that areas bordering  municipalities by automatically  annexed once their population  density reached a certain level,  and the brief of the Elphinstone  Electors Association which urged  "all municipal boundaries be  frozen." The brief of the Area  E' A.PC. suggested that  "persons who deal in or develop  Head Start for a Healthy  Classes for those  in Early Pregnancy  Discussion of prenatal nutrition, dental  health, fetal growth and development,  relaxation techniques and exercises,  thoughts about feeding.

It maintained yearly budget increases  are "completely out of proportion with population growth.  The permanent staff of the  Regional Board are looked upon  as overpaid and underworked...  Wc feci that some control must  be placed upon the District...  Otherwise taxes will soon be  so high that many people will  be unable to afford to live in  this delightful area."  This concern over cost was  less evident in the brief of the  Regional District itself, which  noted with some pride that the  District budget has grown from  $41,000 to $1,240,000 in the first  ten years of its existence. The  brief continued with a hstory of  the District's accumulation of  powers and functions, beginning  in 1%7 with garbage sites, community planning and building  inspection and continuing with  Regional parks and recreation in  1975 and firearms regulation  and joint community use of  schools in 1976, concluding that  "all of the basic services that the  public requires are being provided for now." As for the cost  of these services the brief, which  was prepared by District staff,  claimed "it appears this basic  level of service is being provided  at the least possible cost to the  taxpayers." Among the recommendations in the brief were a  request that "ways be found to  define local autonomy on appropriate issues within Regional  District control." and that social  functions such as welfare and  health care rcmaind the responsibility of senior governments.  The Area A' Property Owners  Association presented a colourful paper claiming the "flower of  democracy   planted   with   such  high hopes has. we believe,  become blighted and stunted by  the disease which infects ail  administrative pastures in our  province ��� namely, the deep  seated polarization of our politics." The paper went on to  propose the number of areas in  the District be reduced to three  from the present six. although  no explanation was offered as to  how such action would free the  district of the polarization infecting all the "administrative  pastures" of the province. A  paper from the Pender Harbour  and District Ratepayers endors  ing the regional approach as the  only appropriate government  for areas such as Area 'A' which  arc beyond being "unorganized"  but not ready for full municipal  status is being sent directly to  Review Commission headquarters.  As we said, the May 8 hearing  was only the first of our encounters with the Regional Review  Commission and while it was a  relatively calm affair, there are  indications future relations may  not be so calm. It was noted  in our original column on the  Review that Ihe present provincial government, which went Into  office on a campaign of decentralization and ending big government, has demonstrated a strong  tendency to decentralize nothing  except costs, the case in point  being education. Inside sources  on the Review Commission have  indicated that the government  now intends to bring municipal  affairs under more central con-  trol as well, abolishing or weakening Regional Districts and  forcing outlying areas such as  the Sunshicn Coast under the  yoke of a super-municipality,  centered in this case in Vancouver. A somewhat similar  approach has been tried out in  Kamloops. and the question is.  if the government isn't considering some such change, why a  pMVOTfcmtM  :���:  J*R  CONCRETE &  CONSTRUCTION LTD.
