V8V 1X4  Sechelt group writes School Board  Seniors back band program  First biby of 1981 on the Sunshine Coist, Carley Suunne tikes a quiet snooze is parents Ken and Janet Stolzenberg proudly  look on. Carley came into the world at 4:52 pm. on January I, weighing in at 5 lbs. 14 ounces.  Since last June the School Board has been asking for  community response to the suggestion that Band Instruction be  discontinued at the Elementary level  Although the issue has been on the agenda for meetings held at  Langdale, Sechelt and Roberts Creek there was no response from  parents or interested people in those communities. It began to  look as if no one cared one way or another until in December the  Board received the following letter from the Senior Citizens  Association in Sechelt.  ''Dear Sir,  Last week we had the pleasure of listening and watching one of the  Elphinstone bands and we were entranced by their abilities and  self-discipline.  .When the local papers came out we read that you were  considering cutting the Elementary level, and felt very disturbed.  Until Mr. Rayment explained that a good many of the players  started with the band in the elementary school we had no idea of  this. We can understand now why the Band obtains the laurels it  does when performing. The Band who played for us, were asked  how many had come up from elementary ranks and a good three-  quarters said they had, so there must be a great interest in this class  to carry.  If the elementary level was dropped, it would mean, (at least in my  estimation) that the Band members would have to be those taking  music lessons on the outside, otherwise the band would not be the  calibre it is. How my sons would have loved being able to do what  these students are doing, but bands were not considered in their  school days. They just might all have finished High School,  instead of only one or two.  | 1 have been asked by our members to protest most strongly the  dropping of the programme, especially now when it is so well  developed. It would be such a waste of talent, not to mention  equipment.  We sincerely implore you to reconsider."  Yours sincerely, Mrs. E.G. Derby, Secretary.  The status of the elementary band programme will be on the  agenda again on Thursday night's School Board meeting to be  held in Madeira Park Elementary School at 7:30 pm.  Not like Vancouver  Weather 1980  In listening to reports of Vancouver's weather one must always  remember their official records are taken at the Airport, removed  from the direct influence of the mountains and although just a few  miles from us as the crow flies in a distinctly different geographical  area.  Vancouver has reported the wettest December and the wettest  year in their SO years of recording, but in the past twenty years we  have had 6 wetter Decembers than this last one, which although its  24.67 cm (including 25.0 cm snowfall) was above the 20 year  average for the month of 21.77 cm, it was a long way from the  wettest December in 1972 which recorded 32.54 cm and a  Christmas to remember with 10 cm falling between 6 pm. on  Christmas Eve and 8 am. Boxing Day.  December 1980 was a month of extremes of temperature  reaching an unseasonable daytime high of 14.5 C ���<December 16,  1976 recorded 13.0 C, but 11.0 is the usual high for the month).  The overnight low dropped to -7.0 during the early cold spell, but  this wasn't a record. December 31, 1978 recorded -10.0 C.  Although 1980 was a year of above average rainfall, after four  consecutive years below the average of 127.0 cm, the 145.90 cm is  still considerably less than 1974, 1971 and 1968 when over 60  inches or 152.0 cms were recorded. 1968 the wettest at 169.11 cm.

Of culture and art  A comprehensive review planned  by Michael J. Nozlnskl  For nearly a quarter of a  century, the Canada Council  has helped struggling painters, poets, artists and writers  in their courtship of the Muse  and their pursuit of excellence. The Council is but one of  ���he more visible, enduring  legacies of the Massey-  Levesque Commission (The  Royal Commission on National  Development in the Arts,  Letters and Sciences).  But thirty years have passed  since this exhaustive study  and there are many new problems and challenges facing  our artistic humanistic communities. The Federal Cultural Policy Review Committee has therefore been given a  broad mandate "to examine  current federal cultural  policies and programs, to  study the needs and opportu  nities that lie ahead, and to  recommend future directions."  A wide spectrum of endeavors are and will be given careful scrutiny: the visual and  performing arts, oral and written literature, heritage  resources including museums  and historic parks etc., archives and libraries, film, records, books and so forth.  The field has purposely been  kept very large, and yet,  in order to keep it manageable, several subjects "of  undeniable cultural significance" will be more or less bj ���  passed. These are: science  and scientific research, sports  and recreation, and formal  education except the "specialized professional training of artists."  Public hearings will be  starting in the east in March  and   will   be   convening   in  Vancouver and Victoria and Yellowknife & Whitehorse  Edmonton and Calgary in in June. At the hearings,  May,   and will  conclude  in please tum to Page Six.  The Provincial government has indicated further support for  the Sunshine Coast Regional District in its attempt to establish  standards and guidelines to govern the granting of foreshore  leases and licences of occupation.  In response to a letter from Mackenzie MLA Don Lockstead,  James Chabot, Provincial Minister of Lands, Parks and Housing,  has indicated that his Ministry is aware of the concerns of citizens  and local government on the Sunshine Coast and is prepared to  co-operate with the SCRD in order to develop an acceptable  policy for "legalizing, modifying or removing existing trespasses"  on the public foreshore and "establishing acceptable public  standards for future legal use of foreshore within the area."  Area A Director Joe Harrison, Chairman of the regional  board's Water Lot Lease Committee, had pointed out at the last  meeting with Provincial Lands Branch representatives that Area  A (Pender Harbour) in particular, has been the subject of an  unusually large number of foreshore lease applications in the past  year and that the area is already plagued by problems with  existing non-conforming situations.  In his letter, Chabot states "It is true that a greater number of  applications for foreshore leases on the Sunshine Coast have  occurred recently. In the past, waterfront ownersdid not require a  lease for private use prior to constructing improvements on the  foreshore. They were technically in trespass, but the time and cost  involved in regulating this use was not Considered justified as most  of the floats and wharves were small and had minimum effect on  third parties."  Chabot goes on to observe that the trend toward larger boats  Sechelt fire  The Sechelt Fire Department responded to a call at 5 am.  last Saturday morning and extinguished a fire at the  Community Hall on the Indian Reserve.  The flames appear to have originated in the kitchen area  and although it has been established the fire did not start as  the result of an electrical malfunction, the investigation  continues.  Land deal pending  A company formed by a group of local businessmen is  negotiating to purchase Bonniebrook Lodge and  approximately 100 acres of property between Cower Point  Road and Highway 101.  The property is presently owned by Ran Vernon of Gower  Point Road and both Mr. Vernon and officers of the  company, Bonniebrook Ocean Park Estates, have declined  comment pending conclusion of the deal.  and a greater public use of the water and foreshore, the situation is  changing.  Chabot states that he has instructed his staff to "review the  situation in Pender Harbour in close co-operation with the  Sunshine Coast Regional District and local residents" in order to  establish and enforce guidelines for use of the foreshore.  Although the Provincial Lands Branch it in charge of the  granting of foreshore leases and licences of occupation, the  Federal government can also act under the Navigable Waters  Protection Act to ensure the right to free navigation of public  waterways. Director Harrison had expressed concern that in the  narrow bays and inlets of the Pender Harbour area, navigation  might be affected by the establishment of large marina complexes.

Production Department:  Pal Tripp  Nancy Conway  Shani R Sohn  Lyn Fabio  Dawning of a troubled year  Well, we've done it once again. We've  marked the going of an old year and the  arrival of the new and it is likely that most  of us feel some sense of time and its  inexorable significance as we turn the  corner of the year.  "My Dad," said a friend, "always said  lhat every night of the year was New Year's  Eve," and so it is but most nights slip by  without much fuss to mark their going and  even the Dad in question, my friend  acknowledged, while manfully declaring  that the turn of the calendar year meant  very little did mark the occasion with his  full share of the traditional revelry.  Granting, therefore, that the year's turn  does carry some significance let's consider  the situation.  Let's start with the world and move  owards our home in the hope that the  closer we get to home the better the news  will be.  On the world scene there is much to  make us anxious. Long inured as we are to  the possibility of nuclear warfare we must  now cope with the realization that several  countries in the Middle East, notably Iraq  and Pakistan and Israel, are in the process  of developing their own nuclear weapons.  It might be that we will be able to contain  the possibility of the ultimate war breaking  out as successfully as we have since 194S  but certainly as those who have the  weapons increase so too must the  possibility of their being used.  The economic gap between the rich  nations and the poor nations continues to  widen and generally there seems to be a  tendency for the peoples of the world to  move into armed camps. The proliferation  of armaments continues and in many  countries of the world brutal repression is  the norm; in others acts of terrorism and  murder have become the accepted format  for expressing differing views.  At times Canada seems almost an island  of civilized non-violent behaviour but even  here our political leaders and many of our  people seem intent on pulling the country  apart. Polls taken indicate that the  Canadian people are dissatisfied with all of  their leaders and it seems a sad truth that  men of vision are nowhere to be found  anywhere in the councils of the world. At  best we have sober conservatives trying  valiantly to keep the lid on things but  nowhere the vision to rectify the situation.  On the Sunshine Coast there continues  to be a boom psychology in the air despite  bleak economic news from elsewhere and it  seems certain that this blessed coast is to  see continuing acceleration of change in  1981.  And so we are an island of apparent  economic prosperity in a nation of  economic difficulty which is largely nonviolent in a violent world. We are, in short,  among the most fortunate of the world's  citizens and this is a fact of our lives we  would do well to remember.  And so with this cheering light beam  among the encircling gloom do we have to  be content. May the year that is upon us be  a happy one, may the secrets of serenity  and content be ours, and may our troubled  species begin to find the better way  forward in 1981.  Canada's national newsmagazine  and the Toronto Jet Set  Heaven forfend that a journal as good-  natured and pacific as the Coast New, not  to mention insignificant, should be so  crassly unaware of its place in the  journalistic scheme of things to dream of  criticizing such an august and important  publication as Maclean's magazine. But  honestly, folks, once in a while the mind  boggles, lurches, and reels to a complete  slop when it contemplates the depths of  latuity to which the keystones of Canadian  communication can sink.  The most recent issue of Maclean's  magazine  has on the cover a  lady  apparently who wears nothing at all under  her white fur coat. The article purports to  tell us about the doings of'Canada's jet set'  and has some twaddle which attempts to  justify the exercise in social terms.  It seems from this vantage point that at  this crucial time in Canada's history our  national magazine might have something  better to occupy it than breathless gushing  about the doings of the idle rich complete  with the assurance that the Toronto in-  crowd is more in than anybody else. It was  limp, it was pathetic. Peter Newman  should turn in his editorial badge and go to  work for Vogue.

This was the conifer growth that clothed  the land throughout aboriginal times and that remained unbroken along much of the Pacific  Northwest well into the twentieth century. From Duncan to Campbell River, so it was said. Douglas  fir trees grew so close together that a filler chopping an undercut in one would hit another behind  him with his axe. Loggers were roused from their bunks with the call. "Let some da)light in the  swamp!" an expression based on the belief that the end of the forest belt could never be reached.  Timber empires���some temporary; some permanent���were founded on stands such as the samples  represented here.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  "Only a damn fool would be  an optimist, but you have to  keep hoping."  Canadian poet Dorothy  Livesay said it in her interview  in the excellent book of  interviews For Openers published recently by Harbour  Publishing of Madeira Park  and available locally.  More of the book anon, but  for the moment Livesay's  observation just about sums up  my feelings as I contemplate  the world in January, 1981.  Perhaps with the season of  good will and good cheer  behind me I might be forgiven  for giving vent to a few  cantankerous observations as  we all embark again on the  voyage of another year.  First of all Ronald Reagan.  Reagan gives me the willies, let  me tell you. I was talking to a  friend the other evening and he  was saying that I shouldn't  worry. He quoted /median  Mort Sahl as sayi ., on television recently '. at Reagan  didn't worry him.  "Reagan's not like Carter,"  my friend quoted Mort Sahl as  saying, "He'll do something.  All that Carter and the rest of  the liberals want is everyone to  like them."  I'm not quite sure why my  friend thinks that it is reassuring to say that Reagan will  do something definite. I can  only conclude that he says it  out of ignorance.  Let's take a look at what little  I know about Ronald Reagan's  recent pronouncements.  First, the hostages: Reagan  has pronounced himself ready  to deal much more harshly with  the Iranians than has Carter.  "Barbarians", he calls them.  Now when one considers that  this is the same man who  referred to the American  protracted involvement in  Vietnam as a 'noble war' it  would seem that he has little  room for labelling any people  anywhere as barbarian. Never  in the often brutal and embattled history of man has such  wholesale and indiscriminate  slaughter been so callously  visited upon one people by  another.  One remembers the American captain who, in discussing  why the American Air Force  had found it necessary to  completely flatten a fair-sized  town in Vietnam, said "We had  to destroy it in order to save it."  One remembers the press  release which appeared in a  Montreal newspaper about  how Dow Chemical Company  of Canada had succeeded in  manufacturing an improved  napalm which had better  'adhesive' qualities. One remembers that napalm is a  flaming petroleum jelly dropped on entire villages and  shudders; one remembers pictures of horribly burned infa nts  and finds Ronald Reagan  guilty of obscenity when he  calls the Vietnam affair'a noble  war' and guilty of the blindest  arrogance when he has the gall  to call the Iranians 'barbarians'.  Reagan will also do something definite about the National Rifle Association and its  gun lobby. He'll support it.  Nevermind the routine carnage  inflicted on American society  by the ready availablility of  guns.  He'll also do something  definite about the environment. He'll make sure that the  already paltry environmental  hindrances on big business are  removed. With a third of the  continent enduring acid rain,  with lakes and rivers dying,  Reagan will remove what  environmental brakes there are  and turn the profiteers loose.  Yes, he'll be definite alright.  He has already promised  significant   increases   in   the  Slings & Arrows  ��v  George Matthews  If  In Vancouver a couple of  weeks ago, I went to a downtown night spot that used to be  a fairly decent disco house.  Now, the place has gone  western. The customers were  dressed in cowboy outfits, there  was a live band with a genuine  fiddler and there was even a  draw for a door prize, just like  it was supposed to be some  community barn dance.  Mock western has of course  been in fashion for some time  now and judging by the expense of rigging out as an urban  cowboy, hat SI SO, boots $200,  styler jeans $75, shirt $50, coat  $230, payments on the pick-up  $200; the fad will be with us at  least until the Chargex bills are  paid���give it another year and  a half.  The western phenomenom  poses some interesting questions and provides a few clues  as to what we can look forward  to in 1981. The most interesting  question is of course, why is the  western theme so popular at  this particular time? Is it, for  example, a function of a rising  western consciousness? Hardly, since the fad originated in  New York. Is it a plot by the  federal liberals to make western  Canada more comfortable? If  so, it has back-fired; Westerners now feel more separate  than ever. Does wearing cowboy suits represent a return to  simpler times, a more conservative era just like Mr.  Reagan said it would be? Or is  it a merchandizing campaign  by clothing manufacturers to  peddle a new line?  The answer is probably a  combination of these factors  with a little sexual fantasy  thrown in. At last, after all  these years men can pretend to  be strong, silent, domineering  drifters and the "little gals" can  imagine themselves as weak,  submissive and in need of  protection. Compared to the  wild West, disco was very  asexual.  The phenomenon also helps  cure the great western Canadian identity crisis. Now,  from Moose Jaw to Victoria,  Westerners have a uniform and  a style, the Calgary Stampede  365 days a year.  As for the rest of 1981, we  can look forward to more  cowboys and cowgirls. The  locus of Canadian culture and  economic life will continue to  shift towards Calgary. Square  dancing will become very  popular. Prime Minister Tru-  deau will be seen in western  style boots. President Reagan  will be seen on horseback a  great deal.  Also, watch for the spin off  effect of the Western fad.  Fundamentalist Christian sects  will flourish. Bible Billy's Kill a  Commie for Christ Hour will  move to Sunday morning  television. The auto industry  will be saved, not by tiny, gas  efficient mini-cars, but by pickup trucks and 4 x 4's with gun  racks as standard equipment.  Willie Nelson will become  American embassador to a  Central American country.  Western slang will begin to  creep into the vocabularies of  bankers, politicians and business executives. The price of  dog food will soar as horses will  now be saved as pets. High  school students will begin  chewing tobacco.  The funeral industry will also  get a welcome boost. Cremations will temporarily become unpopular and burials  with real granite tombstones  will become the rage again.  This "Boothill" effect will  include such old time traditions  as burying the deceased under  his favourite tree and erecting  monuments with corny epitaphs. Look for gravestone  inscriptions such as "This  cavity filled by Dr. John  Smith" for the late departed  dentist or the English teacher's  epitaph "Tense Shift".  All in all, the Western  fashions appear harmless. As  long as bar room brawls and  gun fights arc kept to a  minimum and the Environmental Protection Agency  doesn't insist on minimum  pollution standards for horses,  we will probably survive the  return to the West intact.  Meanwhile, those of us who  preferred to be the Indians in  our childhood games, will treat  the whole wild west fad with  some reservations.  budget for armaments; he has  promised thirty per cent cut in  taxes as well, and then had the  effrontery to say that he's  aiming at a balanced budget.  Noted economist J.R. Gal-  braith was hard-pressed to  keep his language within the  bounds of broadcasting politeness when asked recently on the  CBC what he thought of  Reagan's economic pronouncements. Galbraith sees  massive inflation as inevitable  and interest rates remaining at  their present crippling levels or  higher.  Apart from Iran and the  hostages, in foreign policy  generally Reagan has committed himself to definite action.  He is on record as intending to  support vigorously the juntas  and military dictatorships  throughout ihc third world  who will allow American  companies the great freedom of  exploitation. He will supply  such reactionary and inhuman  regimes with arms and money  for the better suppression of  their peoples.  American foreign policy is  already the greatest tragedy of  the 20th Century and Ronald  Reagan promises vigorous  pursuit of every wrong policy  that has already turned much  of the world against the West.  I am not an American nor do  I live in the US but this tragedy  affects me. The 'definite' action  my friend sees as comforting  could well be fatal for our  species. If we survive the period  of Ronald Reagan we might  survive to the end of the  century. If we survive to the end  of the century mankind might  have a future. We live, however, in the shadow of the tail of  a dinosaur as it begins to thrash  in confusion and anger in its  death throes and only a damn  fool would be optimistic.  We will, of course, keep  hoping.  Mr. Flood's Party  Old Eben Flood, climbing alone one mint  Over the hill between the town below  And the forsaken upland hermitage  That held as much as he should ever know  On earth again of home, paused warily.  The road was his with not a native near;  And Eben, having leisure, said aloud,  For no man else in Tilbury Town to near:  "Well, Mr. Flood, we have the harvest moon  Again, and we may not have many more;  The bird is on the wing, the poet says,  And you and I have said it here before.  Drink to the bird." He raised up to the light  The Jug that he had gone so far to fill,  And answered huskily: "Well, Mr. Flood,  Since you propose it, I believe I will."  A lone, as If enduring to the end  A valiant armour of scarred hopes outworn,  He stood there in the middle of the road  Like Roland's ghost winding a silent horn.  Below him, In the town among the trees.  Where friends of other days had honoured him,  A phantom salutation of the dead  Rang thinly till old Eben's eyes were dim  Then, as a mother lays her sleeping child  Down tenderly, fearing it may awake,  He set the Jug down slowly at his feel  With trembling care, knowing that most things break;  And only when assured that on firm earth  It stood, as the uncertain lives of men  Assuredly did not, he paced away,  And with his hand extended paused again:  "Well, Mr. Flood, we have not met like this  In a long time; and many a change has come  To both of us, I fear, since last It was  We had a drop together. Welcome home'"  ConvlvlaUy reluming with himself,  Again he raised the Jug up to the light;  And with an acquiescent quaver said:  "WeU, Mr. Flood, If you insist, I might.  "Only a very little, Mr. Flood���  For auld lang syne. No more, sir; that wlB do."  So, for the time, apparently It did,  And Eben evidently thought so too;  For soon amid the silver loneliness  Of night he lifted up his voice and sang,  Secure, with only two moons listening,  Until the whole harmonious landscape rang���  'For auld lang syne.' The weary throat gave out,  The hut word wavered, and the song was done.  He raised again the Jug regretfully  And shook his head, and was again alone.  There was not much that was ahead of him,  And there was nothing In the town below���  Where strangers would have shut the many doors  That many friends had opened long ago.

Dear Sir:  Well Mr. Lee we have finally  gotten together. You know that  I am just a stupid farmer and I  know you are just a pompous  ass.  Now maybe we can get down  to business, but please keep in  mind that I do have a little bit  of cerebal ability among the  rocks in my head.  First Mr. Lee you state and 1  quote "has a complaint never  brought to his area Director  either by phone, letter, or in  person."  Now Mr. Lee for the facts.  On August 18, 1980 I wrote to  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District explaining what had  happened, and enclosing the  bill for the repairs. You are  Area C. Director, why was this  correspondence not given to  you? Instead I receive a letter  dated August 20th from Mr.  Jardine trying to prove that  Fisheries had given the SCRD  permission to cross the Creek I  take my drinking water from.  There is only one thing wrong,  Mr. Jardine sent the letter  showing they had permission to  cross Wilson Creek, which has  nothing to do with my problem.  Next Mr. Lee, I realized they  were covering up so I had  copies made of the letter and  the bill and registered them on  the 10th of November, 1980. 1  have checked back with the  Post Office and the Postmaster  assures me it was picked up by a  SCRD employee.  You may double check at the  Post Office, the Slip Registration # was 621 and it was  #335 in the Post Office Registration Book.  The point Mr. Lee is, if you  are innocent so far as receiving  my Registered letter is concerned, then who is responsible? The Chairman David  Hunter?  The  Secretary   Mr.  Jardine, or one of your lesser  employees?  Mr. Lee, the reason I registered it was to make sure you  did receive it! If, there are  irregularities in the handling of  registered mail in the office  then why don't you lay a  complaint with either the  Municipal Affairs Department  or the local RCMP?  You say 1 did not know the  procedure, Mr. Lee 1 think I  followed procedure to the  letter. Do not try to blame me  for what goes on in your office  at SCRD.  Next Mr. Lee, I received a  phone call on the weekend. It  was from a friend of yours. She  said her name was Walters so I  can only presume it was. Her  timing (or yours) was very bad  in prodding me with a big sharp  stick, at this time.  First she accused me of  "Yellow Journalism" a la  William Randolf Hearst.  Please tell the dear lady I am  not a Journalist and also point  out to her I am not yellow, as I  Pender Clinic criticisms leveled  Editor:  I read with pleasure the  announcement in the Dec. 23rd  Coast News the Board of the  Pender Harbour Health Society was going to publicize  their services. That has to mean  that there is something to  announce.  There has been no dentist for  a whole year. At the general  meeting of the Health Centre  Society on October Sth, the  chairman told us that there was  a dentist selected who would be  coming soon and to look for  the announcement. That is two  and a half months ago and I  have been waiting impatiently  for I have teeth. There are also  families of children waiting for  the promised dentist and some  of these are likely to lose teeth  because of the long delay. I  know that the trustees are not  paid but they took the trustee  jobs and what can they be  sitting on that is so comfortable? For those who do not  know the set-up, I'll explain.  The dentist rents space from  the clinic and gets his pay  directly from his patients. The  trustees had money promised  to buy dental equipment in  June. Now they have only to  bring in a dentist and there are  many unemployed dentists.  Also, according to the mothers, there was no prenatal class  for over a year. Five mothers  who had babies during the past  year complained to me about  this because they wanted to  attend a class and there was  nothing for them. The nurse  was hired to do this work and  she is paid. After the petition  was circulated, an announcement appeared in a public place  stating that a prenatal class  would begin on October 21st.  So, petitions are not in vain,  but, classes are supposed to go  on all year and not just when  the roads are slippery.  During the first year of the  clinic's operation the doctor  there had visiting doctor  specialists come to the clinic to  see his patients when he had  enough with the same problem  to fill a day with appointments.  The petition asked to have this  service reinstated. This is not  answered.  The petition also asked for a  diabetes clinic such as the first  nurse practitioner instituted.  This was well attended and  Appalled at selfishness  Editor:  1 was shocked and dismayed,  wjien I read in "The Province"  of December 21st, that the  "Empty Stocking Fund" was  short of its goal. I am appalled  at this evidence of selfishness,  in this area of the world, which  enjoys the highest standard of  living on earth; here, where the  daily liquor bill of British  Columbians exceeds all their  charities; here, where a great  many people will spend more  qn liquor for their Christmas  holidays, than they spend in the  whole year, to relieve the  suffering of human beings;  here, where the price of a  carton of cigarettes is a trifle,  but would seem too much to  pay to save a starving child.  : There are many organiza  tions, such as the churches,  service clubs, the Legion, the  Salvation Army and Care, that  try to carry on programs of  concern. They are all hampered  by a lack of funds and general  indifference to need. Suffering  and want know no season and  so our help needs to be on a  continuing, year-round basis.  Our stomachs are full, but  what has happened to our  hearts? After all, the only real  Christmas gift we can give is  that which helps others and  relieves suffering, wherever it  is. The blessed thing about this  kind of gift is that it may be  given any and every day in the  year.  Sincerely  Meredith H. Dallman  Sechelt, B.C.

This is not  answered.  The clinic was built to give  many services to the people,  but it is hard to understand the  free parking. The spaces nearest the clinic door are filled with  cars and trucks that are there  all day, every day including  Sunday, indicating that their  owners are away. Why can't  these vehicle owners do their  parking away from the front, in  case a sick or hurt person  comes to the clinic? As it is, it is  too much of a hardship for a  patient.  A physiotherapist is good  news, but why don't you tell us  which days she is at the clinic?  Most of us don't like the view  from the foot of the hill. We  want to take our view from the  top. We want to see our clinic  grow with many services. We  voted for a clinic, not a doctor's  office.  If accessibility to clinic  services has improved, as the  article in your paper states, why  don't the people know it or why  don't they like it, for other than  the all day parkers there have  been very few cars at the clinic?  The doctor told us in a letter  that we could tell how busy the  clinic was by the amount of cars  parked in front.  Perhaps people are not sick  any more.  Violet Tyner  am  not  hiding behind  her  skirts, but you seem to be.  To be perfectly honest Mr.  Lee I do thank her because she  inadvertantly showed me why I  have had four (4) years of  fighting Politicians and Bureaucrats.  It is because I am trying to  bring a bit of farming to the  Coast as was my right, so I  thought, when she started on  about getting Agricultural land  out of the freeze it dawned on  me why I have hit so many  brick walls from all directions.  Please tell the dear lady that I  did not force them to buy  Agricultural land that they  can't get out of the land freeze,  and I am not to blame because  their taxes on this land are high  and will be going higher.  I found it odd that she would  be blasting me because you had  not received my letters.  At least Mr. Lee, I now know  what I am fighting.  Regarding the Allan property Mr. Lee, does not the  Land Commission have jurisdiction over Fisheries, Water  Rights, and Regional Districts  in the context of A.L.R. land?  I intend to find out because  someone is going to have to  address that problem and soon.  I know Mr. Walters doesn't  think too highly of people who  want to do a little farming, but  we do have rights Mr. Lee and I  think they will be forthcoming.  Next Mr. Lee how did Mr.  Dixon get away with no  charges laid by Fisheries? If one  man or Fisheries Officers can  take the'law into their own  hands how do you think this  will affect the rest of the  population who might decide  to do the same thing?  If you wish to respond in an  honest manner Mr. Lee, so will  I, but if you prefer the mud  slinging, then so be it.  S.R. Rocky Mountain.

Traditionally, auto insurance premiums have  been based on the Rate  Class system.  This system groups drivers together by age, sex,  marital status, location and  vehicle use. Premiums are  determined according to the  claims costs incurred within  each group.  As a result, people in the  low risk classes enjoy much  lower premiums than those  in higher risk classes.  A surcharge or discount is  usually included based on an  individual driving record.  The F.A.I.R. program, on  the other hand, groups  drivers together solely by  vehicle use on the theory  that  every   person   is  an  equally safe driver until  proven otherwise. The individual's driving record  again comes into play with a  surcharge/ discount system.  As a result of the F.A.I.R.  program, we are seeing a  major reshuffling of the  rates, which will reduce  some premiums and increase others.  Regardless of which system is used, the premium  dollars required to operate  Auto Plan will still be the  same. If one premium goes  down, another must go up.  The Rate Class system  and the F.A.I.R. program  are both quite logical and  each carry convincing arguments as to their superiority.  Only time will tell which is  best.

It seems  we may be plunged hell-bent  from election, back to that  venal Era of McCarthy witchhunts and the Cuban Crisis.  There is reportedly a new and  bullish market in home bombshelters. Old hawks like Barry  Goldwater must be cackling  with joy as their friends and  advocates clump ham-fistedly  into power. With 1984 just  around the corner, one can  only hope that George Orwell  was no more than a wrong-  guessing pessimist.  Since I am neither a prophet  nor a political scientist, I will  not venture any conjectures.  Whatever happens will most  assuredly happen and we will  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  probably luck through again.  But Reagan's unsettling landslide victory set me thinking of  those tense and vituperative  days in the fifties and early  sixties. Along with many other  people, I used to have recurrent  dreams of the nuclear apocalypse, back then. They usually  involved Vancouver dissolving  into radioactive rubble and  mushroom clouds boiling to  the stars. These dreams were  certainly given fresh impetus by  my experience with that half-  forgotten group known in  popular parlance as the Loganberry Lancers.  In the fall of 1961, the  Diefenbaker government initiated a program known officially as a Nuclear Survival  Course. It was directed at  unemployed males and involved a month and a half of  quasi-Army service for the  lavish stipend of forty dollars  per week.

Schedules subject to change without notice  Y     BCFGRRKES  My enthusiasm for participating in this scheme was, to  say the least, minimal. I have  never had more than a fleeting  interest in things military. Once  at nineteen, I was almost  cajoled into joining the Air  Force by a twenty-year-man  cousin but weaselled out at the  last minute and ran away to the  logging camps. The woods  were no bed of roses but at least  you could quit if it got too  hairy.  Thus, I did not exactly beat  an instant path to the recruiting  office door when the program  was announced. Hell, I was  making as much on U.I.C. as  I'd get for wearing burlap. Who  needed it? Unfortunately, the  Conservatives, in their infinite  wisdom, decided that a good  many of us did. It was an early  make-work scheme of sorts,  designed to get the layabouts  off their butts and it had a built-  in compulsion clause. Providing you were marginally able-  bodied, you either participated  or had your benefits withheld.  So commenced my fleeting and  less-than-illustrious brush with  the Armed Forces.  It is early November, 196I.  Induction Day. I am standing  in a line-up at the Jericho  Beach Armouries with a couple  of street friends calied  Paul Kolchak and the Rube.  Kolchak, I have known for a  couple of years. He is short,  dark, easy-going and a compulsive gambler. The Rube, whom  we have recently met, is a bit of  an enigma. His country-bumpkin facade conceals a quick  (and often larcenous) mind. He  reminds me of an oldtime  railroad con-man I once read  about, who used his ingenuous  appearance to put the sharpies  off guard while he bilked them.  Our fellow inductees are as  ragtag a crew of misfits and  deadbeats as can readily be  imagined. Besides the smalltime bar-hustlers like ourselves, there are a number of  scraggly winos, a couple of  pallid  and  rail-thin junkies,  HMMMMM  Used Furniture  and What Have You  ALS USED  FURNITURE  886-2812  several well-known fags, assorted snarly and shaggy-  haired young hoods, various  shabbily-dressed Indians and  the odd, neat-suited and for-  tyish man looking for a brief  reprise of World War Two's  lost youth and excitement.  Hardly a recruiting sergeant's  dream.  They shuttle us through in  groups of ten for written tests  and medicals. The examinations are obviously designed to  be passed. They consist mostly  of true or false questions that  verge on the infantile. A moron  would be hard-put to fail them.  The medical check-ups, conducted by a grizzled, old doctor  who seems to have left retirement for the occasion, are just  as perfunctory. Blood test.  Urine test. A random onceover with the stethescope.  Wham! Bam! Thank you, Sam!  For six weeks, what does it  matter? All, but a couple of the  most emaciated winos make  the grade. "God help the  bloody country if she ever had  to defend herself with this lot!",  says somebody in a broad  English accent, at one point. It  sparks some ironic laughter.  "He sure isn't beating his  gums there!", says Paul.  Finally, we arrive at the  actual swearing-in ceremony.  As we stand before the officer-  in-charge and hold up our right  hands, a sudden, paranoid  fantasy flashes through my  head. What if this is all some  elaborate scheme to truck us  into joining the regular Army  for long hitches. A quick glance  at the motley assemblage  disabues me of this notion.  After the oaths have been  duly taken, we are issued with  uniforms, socks, shirts, boots  and dismissed until the following day. "Hell's bells, fellers",  drawls the Rube, "1 do believe  we've actually gone and joined  the goddamn Army." He gives  Paul and I a lift in his battered  fifty-two Chev, back to the  seedy Kitsilano rooming house  where we both stay. We  arrange to ride with him forthe  duration of the course and split  on the gas.  That evening, as per instructions, we press the rumpled  uniforms, coax what shines we  can from the opaque boots and  try on the whole regalia. The  khaki feels scratchy and rough  and we gasp at our unfamiliar  images in the hall mirror. "Bod  God, if you guys don't actually  look like soldiers!", remarks  our landlady good humoured-  ly, with visions of the rent being  paid on time for a change.

Everyone  appears to be indulging the  annual Festival of Guilt,  making resolutions to cast out  their more pernicious personal  demons. (One member of the  Coast News staff has resolved  to acquire at least two new bad  habits this year. Shouldn't  have too much trouble with all  the second hand vices hitting  the market just now.)  My own New Year's resolution is to once and for all quit  reading "best-sellers" in the  hope of seeing some sign of a  renaissance in American letters. The latest book to confirm my opinions about the  decadence of American writing is a weighty little number  published in 1979 called  The World According to  Garp, by John Irving.  In the past it has. been  easier to identify books that  were written to make .a fast  buck. Soap operas cranked out  by blatant hacks have their  place; they take your mind off  long boring bus rides or interminable waits in airports.  By the time you've looked at  the cover, read the jacket  blurbs and the first paragraph  you know what you're getting  into, so discrimination isn't  a factor and you can't be  disappointed.  The World According to  Garp is something infinitely  more depressing. Bad art is  generally a watered down imitation of good art and that's  fine as far as it goes; the  trouble is that bad art often  sells better than good art and  there exists a fatal temptation  for good artists to imitate the  bad in order to pay for the  radialsonthe Rolls.  The World According to  Garp begins well enough with  Garp's mother, Jenny Fields,  a nurse who in 1942, slashes a  soldier who makes advances to  her in a movie theatre. Jenny,  who later describes herself  as a "sexual suspect" in her  famous autobiography under  that title, is the daughter of a  well off New England family  who simply decides that she  does not wish to share her life  or her body with a man.  Nursing, however, brings out  her maternal instincts and she  is determined to have a child.  She chooses the father carefully, selecting a terminal  case from one of her wards  named Technical Sergeant  Garp, a deteriorating vegetative casualty of one too many  trips in the belly turret of a  flak-riddled bomber. Having  fulfilled the one primal function he remains capable of  Technical Sergeant Garp  conveniently dies. An orphan  himself, he provides a suitably  mythic father for Jenny's son  T.S. Garp. (The initials stand  for Technical Sergeant,  but nobody's supposed to  know.)  The book remains relatively  interesting as Jenny systematically sets out to give her son  the best possible education.  Unfortunately Garp, as both a  character and a novel, just  doesn't live up to his mythic  beginnings. He becomes a  minor writer who, like the  novel of which he is part,  doesn't live up to his potential. In fact, I'd rather have  read any of the novels T.S.  Garp is supposed to have  written than The World of  Garp.  In spite of Irving's attempt  to make Garp a relevant and  sympathetic figure, embroiling him as a central figure,  (again thanks to his mother) in  the revolution of sexual roles  that has occurred in the last  twenty years, with an attendant cast of, as the blurb puts  it, "assassins, wrestlers, tantalizing teen-age babysitters,  adoring children, and a wayward wife", Garp just can't  cut it.  Irving tries to present Garp  as a crusader for truth and  sanity in a world of jingoism  and fanaticism, but the  stands Garp takes seem to be  motivated at least as much by  pique and perversity as they  are by principle. The dead  giveaway, if you'll pardon the  choice of words comes at the  supposed climax of the novel  when Garp is assassinated by  a feminist fanatic. As I approached the climacatic scene,  I found myself thinking,  "Okay, this is where he gets  it" and discovered to my surprise, since I'd read more than  500 pages, that I couldn't have  cared less. Even Garp's  supposed dedication to truth  consists of uttering occasional  clever but obvious platitudes  like the one that ends the book  "In the world, according to  Garp, we are all terminal  cases".  Irving's first mistake, I suspect, was making Garp a  writer. When a writer is reduced to writing a novel about  a writer it's a sure sign that  he's on the ropes. As a first  novel, sort of "portrait of the  artist" it's marginally excusa-  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday   2-4p.m.  Wednesday  2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.  Saturday 2-4 p.m.  886-2130  ble, but as a fourth novel, by  a writer of some obvious skill,  it's a confession of failure. As  personal therapy, writing  about writing is justifiable; as  fiction, it's an exercise in  self-congratulation. How a  writer feels about his own  craft is a subject for a well-  wrought essay at best. Otherwise it's memorabilia and  should be left to the literary  executors.  The World According to  Garp is an attempt to snatch  victory from the jaws of defeat; a writer creating a character who can write the books  he is unable to write, but  throughout the novel there are  broad hints; Garp wrestling  with the problem of the relevance of art and the role of the  imagination as opposed to  mere autobiographical memory etc., but Irving and Garp  both display the failure of  imagination that Garp laments. Irving's attempts to  inject some imagination into  the work, chiefly through  forced black humour and. bizarre coincidence only accentuate the monotonous indifference of The World According  to Garp.  M. Hulot re-booked  More films at  the Arts Centre  This print is an example of the work of David Hockney which will be on display at the Arts Centre In  Sechelt next week.  Hockney at Arts Centre  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Council is pleased to have been  able to rebook Lee Vacaneen  de M. Hulot (Mr. Hulot's  Holiday), Jacques Tali's delightful comedy, for Wednesday. January 14. This film was  to have been part of the fall film  series at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt, but was unfortunately  held up in transit.  Hulot is played by Jacques  Tati, who also wrote and  directed the film, and it is he  who is responsible for its  success. As he hilariously  bumbles his way through a  sleepy sea side resort, he  manages to both alienate the  guest and staff and to endear  himself to the cinema audience.  Mr. Hulot's Holiday is rated  General and can be enjoyed by  laughter-lovers of any age. The  screening begins at 8 p.m. at the  Arts Centre. Admission is  $2.50, students and seniors  $1.25. Those who held series  tickets in the fall will be  admitted free.  The Spring film series begins  Wed. Jan. 21 with the Canadian film, Outrageous. Showings will be on alternate  Wednesdays  and  7  interna  tional feature films will be  screened. Series tickets will be  available at $15; individual  films can be seen for $2.50,  seniors and students $1.25.  Jan. 21 Outrageous, Canada  1977 Dir. Richard Benner.

An exhibition of prints by  celebrated English artist David  Hockney will be presented at  the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  in Sechelt from Jan. 6 to Jan.  25. The works in this exhibition  range from early in 1961 when  Hockney first began to make  prints through to the large  format colour lithographs of  the I970's. Each piece is  delightfully available and understandable, and the artist  remains traditional in the sense  that his work is essentially  figurative. The subjects of  Hockncy's art arc the people,  places and things that he  experiences in his daily life. He  is not interested with inventing  a new and unprecedented art  object that will change Art  History. Hockncy's newness is  in his being David Hockney.  his having a unique vision, and}  the technical ability to communicate it. His creative perception is not just with his eyes, but  with his whole personality.  Gene Baro in his essy l)a\id  Hockney: Print* ami Druu-  ing.x. sums up Hockney as  "coming from a working class  family in the industrial city of  Bradford, a background hardly  encouraging to art.

Which, when translated,  means - a good new year to  one and all, and many may  you see. Such is my greeting  to all, and may 1981 bring you  all that you hope for. We spent  the Xmas holiday this year  down in sunny California -  and I do mean sunny - temperature of eighty degrees on  Xmas day. Just beautiful, but  somehow it was hard to find  the feeling of Xmas in that  part of the world.  Finally did find it on Xmas  Eve in the oldest* part of Los  Angeles known as Elvira  Street which is the Mexican  part of the city, very colourful  and happy with everyone  dressed up to take part in the  Nativity Parade through the  little village singing carols -  mostly in Spanish of course,  but still the same old carols.  It was delightful to sit outside  on a balmy warm evening  sipping on the old Margaritas,  enjoying the parade and then  after the solemn part came the  wild flamenco singing and  dancing which as far as I'm  concerned is the most happy  and "abandoned" type of  music. Just great.  We really spent most of the  holiday further south at Del  Mar, and the only disappointing part there was that the  beaches were fogged in most  of the time, so we headed up  out of it and spent most afternoons on the beautiful golf  courses of the area. Conversations with people who live  there were most nteresting  and surprising. Spoke to quite  a few folks who have sons of  army age who are planning  to head up to Canada. They  seem to have a great fear of  what neagan has up his  sleeve and don't want any part  of it. Makes you wonder why  they put the guy in.  It was a sorry sight to see  the poor dried out Xmas trees  for sale on the lots in LA.  The weather was so hot that  they were all wilted and dry,  but nevertheless it cost twenty  dollars for a skinny wee thing  about four feet high. Real  "Charlie Brown" trees, but  selling   like   hot   cakes.

Such a contrast to  the natural beauties we have  around home.  Redrooffs Fire  Seems that while we were  gone we missed out on some  excitement very close to  home. The house owned by  Don Ross was broken into and  set afire. The house was  completely gutted, although  thanks to our local fire department the actual building still  stands. Heard from someone  who witnessed the fire fighting operation that the Half-  moon Bay Fire Dept. did an  outstandingly efficient job.  Don't know how we ever  managed without this great  group of fellows, all of whom  give of their time and skills  voluntarily.  They were also called out to  a chimney fire on Redrooffs  around about the same week.  It's just a good thing that  these fellows don't all take off  on holiday at that time of  year. Must admit that it was a  bit of a shock to come home  from crime-ridden LA to find  that some idiots had been  brawling and shouting and  causing havoc by breaking  into houses on nice quiet little  old Redrooffs. That kind of  thing we can well do without.  New Year at the Hall  Between fifty and sixty  people gathered at the Welcome Beach Hall to bring in  the New Year with all their  friends, and a real good night  it was too. The live music  which is generally provided  by Paul Hansen was greatly  missed but he did make up  some good tapes for the occasion and this was next best to  the real thing. Missed the  childrens' Xmas party at the  Hall, but hear tell that it was a  very happy afternoon and that  Santa was a big hit. Roy Hill  did a great job of leading the  carol singing and this was  greatly appreciated.  It seems that many of our  local friends were away this  Xmas - met Ruby Warne and  Ed on their way home from  Reno and Connie and.Chas  Hobbs just made it back from  Prince George in time for New  Year. Nice to get away for a  spell but always nice to get  back to your own "fireside"  and to your friends.  Work is progressing rapidly on a 2200 square foot extension to the Sechelt municipal hall.  Cultural review  Continued from page one.  the Committee will be considering written 'briefs' as  well as receiving oral presentations from individuals and  organizations who have submitted papers but who also  have expressed a desire to  make a formal appearance  subject to time limitations.  It is recommended that a brief  be 25 pages or less, or where  longer, that a summary be  provided. Since a 'brief is  really only a 'short writing',  one could submit a brief  'brief'-a short or long letter.  All correspondence should  be directed to the Federal  Cultural Policy Review  Committee; 365 Laurier  Avenue West; Ottawa, Ontario K1A Oc8 Tel: (613)  996-3901. The deadline for  submissions is February 9,  1981. Although there is no  strict format, I do have one,  now heavily annotated,  'guide' and would gladly pass  it along to any interested  group or individual. If there is  a heavy demand, the guide  could perhaps be loaned and  reloaned. 886-8409 nights.  The results of the Committee's work will be published  this summer and will later be  used in the preparation of  a government White Paper.  Since    the    decisions    and  actions of this committee,  like those of its predecessor,  may have an impact on our art  and culture for the next thirty  years, anyone with a unique  expertise or special concerns  is well advised to speak up  now.  SMILES from all of us in the  "YEAR OF THE DISABLED"  The  Sunshine  Coast  ACHIEVEMENT CENTRE  (Hwy. 101 & Wyngart, Gibsons, B.C.)  would like to express  our thanks for the support  by all in the community  for the recent  Semi-Annual Draw  held December 22, 1980  The "Lucky" Winners of  prize workmanship are:  1. Mr. V. Marshall, Gibsons  2. Miss Hilary Fromager, Gibsons  3. Mrs. Mary Weal, Roberts Creek  Mini-prizes went to R. Rudland, Sechelt &  Steve Lawrence, Victoria  HAPPY NEW YEAR  Special thanks to the Weal Family  VLASSIFIEDAZ7S  New Year's festivities  by Jon Van Arsdell  Well, a rather peaceful New  Year is underway in Egmont  following in the wake of what  was quite a festive holiday  season. The evening of December 19 found most everyone  gathered in the Community  Hall for an excellent smorgasbord dinner followed by the  kid's Christmas concert. The  children beautifully recited the  Christmas story to the accompaniment of an impressive slide  show. Next, the annual appearance of Santa, loaded with  goodies for all the kids, kept  everyone hopping and happy.  The town would like to thank  Frank Roosen for the return of  Jake the Peg to our hall. He is  the hilarious three-legged man  who keeps you in stitches with  his musical comedy routine.  The next evening, the hall  was packed again as Rob and  May Silvey held their wedding  reception complete with excellent food and refreshments. All  their many friends were invited  and people stomped and boogied, waltzed and relaxed on  into the next morning.  Through the Christmas holidays many people could be seen  walking from house to house  and boat to boat to wish each  other many merries. One really  nice /feature of living in close  proximity to each other is the  fact that you can see most of the  friends you want without  having to drive. Much safer at  this time of the year, as there is  rarely a shortage of Christmas  cheer in Egmont.  The last major party was a  highly organized New Years  Party hosted by the Fearns at  the fish farm. Again food and  music dominated the scene.  Seafood dishes reigned supreme and included sweet and sour  rock cod, antipasto prawns,  sushi scallops, steamed scallops, lots of escargos, rabbit-  pineapple fried rice, salads and  many homemade pastries and  breads. After feasting we  brought in the New Year with  music supplied by the Irishmen  up from Vancouver. Happy  New Year for sure.  So much for the festivities of  the last two weeks as a lot of  work has been going on as well.  Argus worked last week and  the Inlet was closed to log  salvaging as the beachcombers  worked day and night recovering one of the largest spills ever  in  this  area.  Many of us in town enjoyed  watching Iris Griffith on  Channel Six last Saturday  afternoon on Weekend Report. Her well-organized objections to the Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir powerline with  many references to the Sunshine Coast made it clear how  involved she is in this campaign.  Have a good year, everyone!

Pender Settlement Plan  Participation to be sought  by Howard White  Pender Ratepayers Ass 'n  The Community Plan meeting held at the Madeira Park  Community Hall Sunday,  December 14, was a complete  botch-up. Because the heaviest snowfall in years had occurred over the previous several days it was expected  that people wouldn't turn up  in sufficient numbers to permit useful discussion and  when it was discovered the  hall wasn't ready anyway the  meeting was officially cancelled. Word was sent out  through members of the plan  committee, but when regional  director Joe Harrison went  down to the hall to head off the  anticipated few who would  turn up anyway, he found over  a hundred citizens anxiously  waiting.

He  was shown no mercy, and  several political foes used the  occasion to sound off. In addition the meeting insisted on  passing resolutions demanding "deletion" of certain parts  of the plan.  To some extent, the surprise turnout and its hostility was the result of a concerted campaign by development  interests who see Pender  Harbour as a real estate "hot  spot" (practically everything  for sale was sold in the past  year) which is being held back  by "old fashioned" attitudes  on the part of local citizens  who refuse to welcome condominiums, high-density subdivisions and other trappings  of the land boom with open  arms. These developers are  somewhat panicked by a  suspicion that the community  plan, with its emphasis on  maintaining a rural country  atmosphere, will cause the  community's "backward"  attitudes about development  to be graven in stone. Many of  these developers are not even  Harbour residents, accounting  for a number of strangers at  the plan meeting professing  that they were only there out  of great love and admiration  for the area, looking for ways  to help its children thrive.  One Sechelt-based promoter  was found lurking about a  local coffee shop, buttonholing  locals and lecturing them on  the perils of economic stagnation and the virtues of small-  lot subdivisions. A former  teacher's aide, he became  very hot when doubted and  vowed to tell his former  students to take up arms  against the plan.  Such efforts were probably  unnecessary, however, since  Pender Harbour has never had  any trouble getting out a  hostile meeting on its own,  particularly when the subject  is regional district planning.  The first attempt to bring in  a plan for the area back in  1968 brought forth the uproar  which gave birth to the Pender  Harbour and District Ratepayers Association. The  second attempt, on March 19,  1972, was sponsored by the  same Ratepayers Association  and was much better thought  out than the first, calling for  many things, like separation  of land uses into mutually  compatible areas and protection of drinkng water sources,  which are in the present  community plan.  There were a number of  provisions in this plan, such as  the harbour headline to prevent wharves from jutting out  into restricted waterways,  which would have prevented  many of .the blemishes and  bottlenecks which have since  bedevilled the community.  However, the plan was shot  down at another uproarious  meeting and it was five years  before another attempt was  made to put sense into the  area's pattern of growth  when the present community  plan process was begun.  Establishment of a Pender  Harbour Plan is now doubly  important, both because the  Please turn to Page Eighteen.  CLEARANCE  SALE  tand  on your own feet  by Dorothy Nahanee  1980 was quite a year! A  volcano erupted, rain fell in  record amounts. Our dollar  dropped and the interest rates  rose along with the prices of  about every thing. The economic outlook is grim at best.  Before the advent of supermarkets the majority of people  planted in the spring and  harvested and stored produce  in the summer and fall to  provide for the needs of the  winter. It is the custom of the  members of the Mormon faith  to store a year's supply of food  in the event a crisis occurs. For  the rest of the population who  are in the habit of a bi-weekly  paycheck it is unusual to  accumulate more food than is  needed to last two weeks. Still  with mass lay offs and strikes  becoming more prevalent storing enough food for even a few  months could be an idea with  some merit and would take off  the burden from the family  during a money crisis.  This year why not plant a  garden and harvest the wild  fruits? Invest in canning jars  and build a solar dryer. Freezing is easy but in electrical  failures all is lost. Construct a  root cellar to store carrots,  potatoes etc. A portion of your  basement or garage could be  utilized.  Any cool frost free  spot with the right humidity  will do.  Buy products that will store  well such as honey, grains and  beans in bulk. Replenish as you  use them. Flour will keep if  kept cold but will grow rancid  in a short time if allowed to  warm. It is better to store wheat  in a closed container and grind  into flour as needed. Powdered  milk will keep for a long time  withour deteriorating. Dried  vegetables, fruits and fish take  a surprisingly  small  storage  area and can be reconstituted  with water. Salmonberries and  blackberries make potent wines  and savory jellies and syrups.  Mt Elphinstone is a great  source of blueberries in August  if you have access to a four  wheel drive or good hiking  boots.  Fill the larder all summer  and then sit back next winter  secure in the knowledge that all  is well and the cupboards won't  be bare.

Ill    NEWSFOR  BRITISH COLUMBIA MOTORISTS  WHO ARE 65 AND OVER.  In recognition of the special position which Senior Citizens  hold in our society a new automobile insurance grant has been  announced by the Provincial Government.  Intended to ease the burden of increased auto insurance  rates, the grant is equal to 25% of the 1981 compulsory automobile  insurance premium.  It is available to any citizen whose vehicle is rated for 'pleasure'  use, and both the owner and the principal operator are 65 years of  age or more.  How does it work?  ��� If you renewed at 1981 rates in  December, you did not receive  the new Grant and should visit  your Autoplan agent who will  arrange for a cheque to be mailed  to you.  ��� If you haven't yet renewed at  1981 rates, you should advise your  agent that you qualify for the  Senior Citizen Automobile  Insurance Grant, and he will  deduct the amount from your  premium.  ��� If you renewed your insurance  in November or December at  1980 rates, you have already received the 25% Senior Citizen  Discount which applied for 1980  insurance.  ��� If you purchased Autoplan  Insurance for the first time on or  after November 15,1980, and  are eligible for the Grant, you  should check back with your  agent and arrangements will be  made for a cheque to be forwarded.

Mankind, being creatures of habit, frequently tends to fall back  i nto the very habits which have brought about the desire for change,  some of us stumble on making the same old mistakes, not learning  from them.  Change, it seems, must start from oneself, from within. Change  will only come from a determined resolve to be different. We put up  little 'caution' signs all along the way to keep us from straying back  into old habits so as to develop new paths.  So, if you were of a mind to bring about change within or about  yourself, and made a New Year's resolution to that effect, beware of  mankind's nature to fall into old well-worn ruts.  If you made a New Year's resolution it must have been because  you want change. So my friends, be determined -Do III  For my part I am changing some well-worn habits. I have slimmed  down. I feel better as a result. The years I have left to me I want to  thoroughly enjoy, while at the same time discharging my private  and public obligations in truth and honour.  We, at Ken's, have looked into the crystal ball, as we do each year,  to map out our operational plans and fiscal budgets. It's amazing  how accurate such business tools become with experience. And,  speaking of resolutions and plans for change, we in business have  to watch carefully that the plans of action that went into the budget  are carried out, if we expect to succeed.  Having looked ahead into 1981, we look forward with a great deal  of confidence. Over the years we have gained a great many friends  and good customers. We know that they in turn will recommend us  to more as new people come here to live and new friends are made.  To all we wlsha very happy, healthy, and good life in 1981. May  you be the full measure of your New Year's Resolutions.  Sunday Opening  Yes, we continue to be open, because the electorate of  this municipality by an over-whelming majority approved  the necessary by-law permitting us to be open.

Outcome of the Pee Wee league  game was 12-2 in favour of the Legion team.  Sechelt Rangers  join ff A" League  Sechelt Credit Union Rangers hockey team recently  joined the Pacific Coast Amateur Association Juvenile "A"  League.  The league is composed of  nine teams from all over the  lower mainland and it is  expected that the calibre of  hockey being played by the  teams already in the league will  benefit our local players.  Ken   Corbin,  the  team's  manager, told the Coast News  there was a bit of difficulty in  being accepted in the league as  a result of the travelling  involved but this has been  overcome and the first game  will be played in South Delta  on Thursday January 8.  The first home game will be  played at the Sechelt arena on  Saturday, January 10 at 6 pm.  against Burnaby, currently in  first place.  Ski conditions poor  Heavy rains and melting  snow caused by unseasonably  high temperatures have contributed in keeping local skiers  from the slopes this season.  Thousands of vacationers  were stranded in Whistler  between Christmas and the new  year following severe highway  flooding and elsewhere in the  lower mainland, conditions are  still not improving.  mister now  at  Cnhmo college  Fisheries ft Oceans  Notice to Sport Fishermen  Effective Midnight, January 14, 1981 and  until Midnight, February 15, 1981, the  waters of Pender Harbour will be open to  sports fishing of dungeness crabs by  means of hoops or open rings, not  exceeding three (3) feet in diameter. (No  traps are permitted). The Madeira Park  Fisheries and Oceans office should be  contacted with results of catches at 883-  2313.  Legion lone competition finals got under way in Gibsons last Saturday between Gibsons and Powell  River In both regular and senior classes. Winners in the regular class will go to the provincial bonspiel  in Esquimau!! while the seniors go to Prince Rupert February 20 to 22.  Fast, high-scoring hockey  SCMHL standings  All but one game has been  played in the SCMHL, with  the surprising Flames,  (formerly the A's) holding a  slim lead over the four team  league. Games thus far have  been fast and high-scoring for  the most part, and as the  standings would indicate, very  competitive.  An interesting statistic in  this first season of interlocking  play with the four Squamish  teams, shows the SCMHL  having won only 4 of 12 interlocking games. But in those  wins there have been some  very convincing scores, such  as the Bruins initial win over  Squamish Canadians 18-8.  The Creeks 10-5 win over  Super Valu, and Gibsons 10-2  win over Squamish. Certainly  the games and teams have  been competitive to date, and  should make for an interesting  play-off between leagues.  Upcoming Garnet  At this point, with the flood  dilemma recently in Squamish, the interlocking schedule will be on hold, however,  regular SCMHL league games  will begin Saturday Jan. 10.  Sat. Jan. 10 - (8:15 p.m.) -  R.C. vs Gibsons Rangers.  Sun. Jan. 11 - (6:45 p.m.) -  Bruins vs Flames.  Tues. Jan. 13 - (9:00 p.m.) -  Flames vs R.C.  Curling  play-offs  This coming weekend at the  Gibsons Winter Club will see  young high school curlers from  the Sunshine Coast and the  North Shore area competing  for berths in the provincial  finals to be held in Kelowna  later this spring.  For the first time in several  years, both boys and girls  teams will be competing at the  same time. There will be six  boys teams and four girls teams  and one team from each group  will advance to the provincials.  The Sunshine Coast will be  well represented with two boys  teams and one girls team from  Elphinstone plus one girls team  fiom Chatelech. Other teams  will be from Argyle, Hands-  worth, Sutherland and Windsor Secondary Schools on the  North Shore.  Curling takes place Saturday  and Sunday.

Carl's  corner  In search of a career  by Carl Chrhunaa  By the time Perse and I had  iiung our packs on the cabin  ���porch and were ready to travel, Ted had the track figured  j)ut for the right direction  fad had settled into the long,  Jrawnout bay of the tracking  loodhound; unbroken when  fhc track was hot; breaking  .into a combination of whines  and yips where the cat had  taken a leap onto a windfall;  jhen settling down to his  }calp-tingling bugle when he  pad picked it up again. When  ?>n track, it sounded for all the  world as though Ted was  calling. "Come oooooon;  come oooooon; come oooon!"  And we'd 'come on' as fast as  pur legs would carry us I  % As we left the cabin, 1  called to Perse, "What about  our lunches?"  "Never mind the lunches -  we'll be back here in an  hour!", he shouted back  (jxcitedly.  : Famous last words! That  was the longest hour I ever  experienced - it lasted for a  day, a night and most of the  next day. Even Perse admitted  il was one of his toughest  hunts and this cat one of the  wisest.  ���< He'd tree when tired;  .-wait until he heard or saw us  rcoming; then jump and run  again. The answer was for us  Jo stay closer to Ted - to arrive  -before the cat was rested and  "jeady to jump.  -r. At one point the cat headed  llnto a patch of blowndown  timber. Ideal conditions for  billing a dog. Perse had told  3ne about other dog killers  :jhat had done the same thing -  .���"circle around on his own track,  "jeap to a low windfall, then  wait for the dog to pass below  with his nose to the ground.  One blow from that mighty  paw and death dealing king  claw and poor old Ted would  never know what hit him.  My cougar hunting pal was  getting worried.  He shouted to me, "Get  on top of the timber. If you see  the cat, shoot to scare but  CARSANDTRUCKS  Rental���Leasing  ���Also-  Domestic & Industrial  Equipment  Sechelt next to the  liquor store  Gibsons at Pratt &  Hwy. 101  Seaside Rentals  885-2848      886-2848  don't try to hit him.  He'll  kill the dog!"  Perse was getting winded  so he let me go on ahead. His  forty-odd years were catching  up with him whether he admitted it or not.  It was difficult staying on  the snow covered logs. It  would ball up under the steel  caulks and down I'd go. Back  on top, I'd take a quick look  ahead, then make the best  time I could to reach the  ground tracking dog.  I was halfway through the  blowdown when I saw the  cougar ��� my first one. He was  big and he was beautiful!  That white whiskered face was  as innocent as a tabby cat  playing games with a back  yard pet.  He was sitting on a low  windfall a short way ahead.  Ted must have been right  below him when he spotted  me, which made him hesitate between taking a swipe at  the dog or getting to hell out  of there. He chose the latter)  Without aiming, I snapped  off a shot over his head and  let a yell out of me at the same  time. He went bouncing  across the blowdown in long  jumps, his great long tail  flowing along behind him. I  had time to aim and fire and  was sorely tempted. But  Perse's warning stayed  my hand. To be the cause of  losing Ted to that cat would  have been akin to blowing off  his right arm with my 30/30  rifle. That dog had put food in  their bellies over many a long  winter. He was as much a part  of the Brown family as Jessie  and their tvjb kids!  I looked back to see how  Perse was coming but he was  nowhere in sight. I shouted:  "Hey, Perse. Where are  you?"  I was about to retrace my  tracks when his head popped  up from between a mess of  windfalls. He looked to be  in great pain.  "You O.K.?" I asked..  "Nope. Feels like broken  ribs", he wheezed. "I'm  going to have to go back to the  cabin". He fished in his  pocket, then tossed me a  leash. "Be sure you tie. Ted  before you shoot the cat out of  ja tree. In any case, if you can  'get a leash on Ted, call off the  hunt. We'll come back in a  couple of days with another  dog. This one's a killer!"  I left him then and headed  out of the blowdown toward  the sound of Ted's baying, up  ahead. His voice sounded  different now and I was soon  CASTLEROCK  (formerly Walkey Kennels)  wish to advise our clients that we  are unable to accept dogs for  boarding who have not received  PARVOVIRUS  VACCINATIONS  We urge ALL dog owners to contact  your veterinarian for information  on the necessary procedure.

This caused his  bay to turn to bugle as he  jumped and howled at the  same time. Ted was really  excited now and as I neared  the tree, I was becoming more  so. As Perse once said, "As  nervous as a cat in a room full  of rockers!" I'd have spilled a  lot of tobacco trying to roll  a smoke about that time!  Suddenly 1 was under the  tree with Ted. The cat had run  up a small, limby cedar and  was just out of Ted's reach.  When I appeared he went up a  little higher. But the cedar  was so small it was beginning  to bend with his weight. I  knew he wouldn't be staying  there long so I would have to  act fast. And 1 was soon going  to learn whether Ted would let  me leash and tie him back. He  had always been friendly  but in his excitement it was  hard to say what he might do.  When I looked up the tree  that pretty, white-whiskered  face didn't look quite so  friendly. The cat's ears were  laid back tight against his  head; his eyes were slanted in  a glare of hatred as he emitted  a spitting growl at this new  intruder into his game of  'jump and run'.  I watched my chance to  make a grab for Ted's collar,  then trying to hold on with one  hand while keeping the rifle  pointed at the cat with the  other. I didn't know what I  was more afraid of - being  bitten by Ted or jumped on by  a cougar I  Ted was putting up such a  struggle that I had to lean the  rifle against a tree while I  snapped on the leash. He was  going wild by this time  but it wasn't until I had him  tied that 1 found out why.  While I was busy struggling  with the dog, the cat had  worked his way down the tree,  jumped into a shallow dry  wash, and was heading  straight down the hill toward  Haslam Creek canyon and the  roar of the'Falls'!  And here is where Brown's  training hadn't gotten through  to me. I didn't do as I had  been told.  "If you get the leash on  Ted, call off the hunt. We'll  come back in a few days with  another dog."  But it was still so early in  the day. And we had been so  close to having that cat in the  bag. If only I had tied Ted  to my belt and stayed under  that tree for a quick shot or  two the chase would have  been over. I wasn't very proud  at having let him get away!  Ted was jumping up and  down - baying one minute,  whining the next, looking at  me as though I had holes in  my head. "Let me loose, you  fool!", he was scolding  me.  And like a fool, I did. Down  the hill he went, hot on the  heels of that rested cat.  And me right behind them,  sliding on my rear in the snow  more than on my feet. The  trail led right down to the  river bank and into the water.  The stream was maybe a  hundred feet wide at this point  and running shallow over the  rocky bottom. A flat rock in  mid stream had a big pad  mark in the snow - then I  spotted tracks on the other  side where they both had left  the water. There was nothing  for it but to plunge in after  them. Never had ice water felt  as icy. My already cold feet  went numb to the knees!  The tracks led me up the  Coast News, January 6, 1981  11  hill and onto a ridge. Because  of the roar of the falls and the  river I hadn't been able to  hear the dog, but as I cleared  the ridge his voice became  audible. But it was not coming  from the ridge 1 was on. It  was coming from across the  river and the big flat we had  just left. I was sure I was  losing my sense of direction,  so determined to stay with  the tracks.  But back down the hill  they went. Into the water and  back up the other side. As  1 left the roar of the falls  1 began to hear Ted's bay.  And by the sound of his voice  he had treed that cat again. As  winded, tired and sore-  footed as I was, that bugle  charged me with a brand new  energy. I took off at a gallop,  this time with a new plan of  action. This time we were  going to kill that cat!  To be continued  Up to  OFF     '  'til January 17th  Sechelt's  The Dock   Cowrie St.    885-5323  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  .

Blbsons 886-8158  OPEN SUNDAYS ���������*  by Don Lockstead  MLA ��� Mackenzie  The premier called the legislature together for just eight  days. Why he did that is still a  mystery to both the opposition  and the government side. The  government's program as outlined in the throne speech, is the  most meagre ML As have been  asked to consider since BC  joined confederation.  Apart from the Canada  bashing which was expected,  the government finally put  down in black and white just  what it was they were trying to  achieve.  The first of these is to enable  British Columbians to enjoy  the best possible health. That's  a great aim, but I am left  wondering about the competence and the priorities of a  government which tolerated  chronic overcrowding at local  and regional hospitals around  the province. Patients are  having their surgery cancelled  and emergency cases are being  turned away at some hospitals  because there are no beds for  them. But the Socreds built a  new hospital at UBC, over the  protests of the medical profession. Last September there  were less than 12 patients a day  in a 270 bed hospital.  The government's aim is for  the citizens to be protected by a  fair and even handed system of  justice. That's a great aim too,  and one that is taken for  granted in all Western democracies. However, only British  Columbia had nine separate  internal investigations into the  administration of justice last  year. Predictably all of these  internal investigations exonerated the administration. In the  week we were sitting, the Getz  report into the Kaiser/ BCRIC  deal was tabled. Getz found  that nothing was done contrary  to B.C. law, and yet those in the  know, somehow managed to  amass sizeable fortunes. That is  not even-handed justice.  The third aim-to attain  personal financial security-is a  mockery to our young people  wondering how they are going  to ever afford a home of their  own. It's a mockery too to the  small business people wh�� are  facing financial ruin because of  rocketing interest rates. And  the employees being laid off are  wondering how they are going  to put food on the table.  There's nothing in the government's program that deals with  these needs.  The fourth aim is tc ensure  that we can all live in a healthy  environment. That's laudable  too, but it is this government  that continues to allow companies with a record of pollution control violations to  discharge pollutants into our  environment, monitor their  own pollution and then report  to the government whether  they have met the conditions of  their permits. A case in point is  Amax of Canada's permit to  dump radioactive mine tailings  into Alice Arm.  The fifth aim is equality of  opportunity and treatment. I  do not think that the Nisgha  Indians enjoy equality of  treatment as their food, their  fish and their whole lifestyle  Taces destruction for the benefit  ���A Amax. Where is the equality  For the single parent needing  ihelter in relation to the  millionaire who destroys an  eight-bedroom home because  his new wife does not like the  style?  The final aim is to protect the  freedom to lawfully pursue our  individual lives without undue  interference from the state or  our fellow citizens. The government suggests this freedom,  while sitting idly by as the Ku  Klux Klan gains a foothold in  British Columbia. The government interprets this freedom to  mean the Klan has the freedom  to harass other British Columbians. Such an interpretation  of freedom is frightening.  Freedom is a very fragile thing.  Any individual or group should  be entitled to complete and  absolute freedom as long as  that freedom does not infringe  on the complete and absolute  freedom of any other group or  individual. The Klan aims very  precisely at interfering with the  freedom of a significant group  of Canadians. The government  has a responsibility to act, and  it is abrogating that responsibility.  The public gained nothing  from this session. What British  Columbia needs just now is an  election.  J#11j> ft**" In*  nWSSw��::%W%::S*M'v  An Invitation  BBS!

In the heart of Roberts Creek  "Hahle's back in town"  by John Bunulde  Hahle Gerow is back living  in the heart of Roberts Creek.  She has been singing and  doing her stuff up and down  the coast of North America for  the past several years. Now  she is back where it all started  with a brand-new transcription album of her singing and  her songs, renewing acquaintance with her old friends and  admirers and preparing to win  a host of new friends with her  bitter-sweet songs of integrity  and skill.  If you know Hahle you are  delighted that she is around  again. If you haven't met her  yet in person or in performance and can appreciate a  lovely lady of warmth, honesty  and talent you have a considerable pleasure ahead of you.  The love of music and the  love of words have been a part  of Hahle Gerow for as long as  she can remember. Her first  public appearance as a singer  was at the age of seven.  "I sang Me and My Teddy  Bear slightly off-key and  clutching the Teddy Bear. It  taught me that singing in  public was a little less scary if  you had something to clutch."  Hahle was eighteen when  she found the right something  to clutch during performance.  "I bought this old guitar  for $25.00 in a pawn shop. It  cut my fingers but I played it  and played it."  Between the Teddy Bear  and the pawn-shop guitar  there were innumerable  recreation room concerts featuring Hahle, her younger  sisters and her cousins.  Hahle was born in West  Vancouver and though her  musical travels have taken her  such places as Alaska. Edmonton, California, and  Hawaii she keeps returning to  her native B.C.  The roots of the music go  away back. Hahle remembers  f  1 St't  K*MhMi ;w4��*  ������'������ r<$n  wu  1  When hope is tested  ...we care.  When some one dear departs, the loss is often  accompanied by a feeling of hopelessness.  But reach out to your friends and you'll find  the strength you need. In such a time  you can rely on us ... we understand.  886-9551  D A. Devlin  Director  1665 Sea view  Gibsons  her grandparents who both  played piano and sang. Her  mother was a fairly well  known jazz singer in Vancouver, appearing at such clubs  as the Commodore and being  invited to perform in Chicago  although she never went.  Her mother's musical background led her to encourage  Hahle in every way she could.  "I loved everything con-.  cerned with music. I took  lessons in ballet, in piano,  even in elocution but I quit  that when I started sounding  like an opera singer."  She remembers being part  of a musical group in West  Van High. There were three  girls backed up on guitar by  Brent Titcombe and King Anderson. "Brent and King used  to practise in the washroom  because of the accoustics."  Besides all the musical  activity, Hahle began writing  poetry in her early and mid-  teens. "I dug some of it out  recently and some of it still  ran stand."  When she first moved to  the Sunshine Coast almost ten  years ago Hahle's musical  activities began to increase.  "There were so many musicians around then, Jesse  Clark, Dave Virella, Pat  Murphy. Ken Dalgleish,  Denny James, Steve Hodgson.  We started practising downstairs and my first gig with a  band was with our local group  Homebrew. Our first performances were at the Roberts  Creek Legion. The Legion  people were great and when  their faith in us paid off so that  the Legion could afford a new  floor everybody was delighted."  After Homebrew, Hahle  sang with another local group  under the title of Up the Creek  which   included   the  indefa  tigable Ken Dalgleish,  Budge Schacte, Michael  Dunn, Phil Knipe and Daryle  Sherman.  Sherman & Hahle, as a duo,  first sang together in the  Wakefield Inn and later for  some time in California where  Hahle first sang in public  her own songs.  After her return from Call-,  fornia and Hawaii, Hahle took  herself off to Vancouver to  work and develop her music.  She had met Carol Carlton in  Roberts Creek and found that  Carol sang harmonies beautifully to Hahle's songs. .Carol  joined her in a group called  Casablanca with Michael  Dunn and Michael Deason  and then moved with.her to  the band Hahle works with  now, Oat of the Blue.  A couple of years ago,  high school friend King Anderson, who .also lives in  Roberts Creek, was instrumental in getting Hahle an  appearance on the CBC radio  show Touch the Earth with  hostess Sylvia Tyson. This led  to the compiling of a transcription album by the CBC featuring Hahle and her songs.  For those who might enjoy  the work of this, talented  and homegrown composer-  singer the opportunities are  twofold. There is the.aforementioned record which can  be procured.by phoning the  CBC and asking for producer  Craig   Wood.  In addition to the album  there will be the first of what  hopefully will be many opportunities to hear the work of  Hahle Gerow live and in  person. She and Carol Carlton  will be the featured entertainment, at the Cedars  this week Wednesday through  Saturday, 8:00 p.m. till  midnight.

BUSINESS  145 West 15th Street  North Vancouver. B.C. 980-6571  In  Christ's  service  Pearls of wisdom  a glut on the market  by Rev. George W. Inglis  Pearls of wisdom, once more  precious than gold, have become a glut on the market, and  the bottom has dropped out of  their value in this day of global  communication.  Every living-room, or television 'room, or recreation  room, or saloon in the land can  be turned into a forum of  learned opinion at the turn of a  switch, and the listener has  become saturated with these  easily-accessible precious  gems, this plethora of pundits  providing pearls of wisdom,  until the audience resistance is  going up, and the value of this  type of gem is going down.  Not the least of the victims of  this over abundance of experts  is the traditional church, once  the bastion of theological  expertise, but now over-run by  the electronic sages whose  pearls of instant radiance are  wearing the authenticity of  glittering stage settings, powerfully swelling music and thrilling chorale offerings, and a  sure-fire answer for all of the  world's ills.  There is very little doubt in  the minds of the faithful, that  this attack on the credibility of  the Christian's traditional  worship practices will not  destroy an institution which  has withstood the test of time  and the onslaughts of many  powerful foes during the 2,000  years of its existence, any more  than they believe that the  created can destroy the Creator.  There is a great deal of soul-  searching going on, however,  to determine whether the  traditional church has kept up  with the world in which it  serves, or whether it has  dragged its feet and is addressing the world with pearls of  wisdom which are at once  archaic and irrelevant.  There is, again, little doubt  among the faithful, that the  gospel message is a contemporary message for every age, and  that the same power and  relevance for today is contained within its words, as was  contained in the original  message preached by our Lord  Jesus Christ when he walked  this earth.  There is also little doubt  among many Bible students  that the situations addressed by  the gospel exist today, just as  clearly definable and easily  delineated as they were 2,000  years ago.  The same evil exists in the  form which Moses Maimo-  nides, a great Jewish philosopher, mathematician, court  physician and theologian detailed in one of his writings.  Maimonides said evil had  three sources:  1) The malevolence of nature,  e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes,  tornadoes, volcanoes, etc.,  but the benevolence of  nature, e.g. the sun and the  rain for growing, the bountiful provision of food and  shelter from the earth and all  that grows on it and in it, far  outweighed the evil.  2) The evil that man (woman)  does against man (woman).  3) The evil that man (woman)  does to self.  This has been the problem  which thechurch has addressed  since its inception; nothing has  changed in this line, and  therefore  the  gospel,  which  addressed the problems created  by these three sources of evil  powerfully in lst-century A.D.  surely should be just as powerful today!  Those of strong faith in the  church, the saints who have  lived through the trials and  tribulations which have beset  the church through the ages,  believe this (and have believed  it) unwaveringly and in  strength.  The problem is that the  bearers of the gospel message  are creatures with clay feet,  "earthen vessels," as Paul put it  in 11 Corinthians 4:7, and we do  not all bear the message as  powerfully and unequivocally  as we should.  And this faulty delivery of  the message, unfortunately, is  not the slightest bit new ��� it can  be found being condemned by  the apostle Paul himself, just a  few short years after the earthly  ministry, and the delivery of the  true gospel, of Jesus Christ.  How does the church respond?  Over the centuries, one of the  answers has been to turn back  the pages of time and re-create  the responses and activities of  the early church.  This process has worked  effectively in some isolated  cases, especially in the village of  Herrnhuth in Saxony, the  birth-place of the Moravian  Pietists, who became the  forerunners and founders of  the Protestant missionary  movement, and whodid gallant  pioneer work in late 18th and  19th centuries, carrying the  gospel message in an undiluted,  if somewhat heavily literalistic  form.  The problem inherent in this  answer to the revitalization of  the gospel message is that it is in  danger of becoming an unworldly praciice, which focuses too heavily on the materialistic and cultural milieu of the  early church, and ignores the  fact that the gospel was  brought to the whole world,  and addresses the whole world  today with a dynamic, and not  a static voice!  Maybe the answer for the  church today is to arrive at a  solution which tries to re-create  the spirituality of the early  church in its mission zeal and  its fearless witness to a hostile  and often vicious audience, de-  emphasizing the crass commercial aspects of salaries,  insurance, building programs,  etc.  This may prove to be a  radical answer, but so was the  cross of Calvary!  Church meeting important  The elders of both Sunshine  Coast United Church polled at  the quarterly charge board  meeting, December 17, and  agreed to the following dates  for the annual congragational  meetings:  Gibsons United - Wed. Jan.  28,7:30 p.m.  St.  John's -  Fri. Jan.  30,  7:30 p.m.  It is vital that you mark your  calendar with these dates, and  plan to attend, since the congregations will have to set  the machinery in motion to call  a new minister!  The calling of a minister is a  task which calls for much  prayer, reflection and spiritual  commitment, since the life of  the church (es) is (are) vitally  affected by the presence of an  effective and well-accepted  ordained minister.  It is also vital that both  congregations have a meeting  of minds on the guidelines for  the selection of the new minister, with specific instructions  to the pastoral relations committee to aid the committee in  its search.  All of this entails a healthy  input of ideas, so please help  your session of elders to see  your enthusiasm by turning  out in good numbers for the  annual meetings I  Capilano course offerings  Capilano College offers  both credit and credit free  activities at the Sechelt  Learning Centre on Inlet  Avenue. The two types of  courses differ in cost, length  and accreditation.  Credit courses usually carry  over in transfer situations,  either to Universities or in  technical upgrading. Courses  may also be creditable to  career or vocational programs  at Capilano College itself,.  Credit courses imply examinations and evaluations of  student performance and acceptance of the course as  being of a certain level of  difficulty and covering a prescribed amount of material.  Credit courses usually are  sixteen weeks in length, and  cost about $8.50 per credit  hour (a three credit course  then costs $25.50). The Fall  Term for credit courses is  coming to a close at the  Learning Centre where four  courses were offered, English,  Geography, Business Management and Education.  Capilano College believes  that learning is a lifelong  process. To help establish new  skills or upgrade skills already  present without requiring  return to full time studies,  the College offers credit free  community education.  Credit free activities are  somewhat more flexible in  their design than credit  courses. They may take the  form of short courses (usually  six to ten weeks in length)  short seminars of one or two  sessions, or one day workshops.

Special  courses may be organized to  meet training needs in business and industry such as  Principals of Supervision;  the course given in the first  week of December. Other  credit free courses offered in  the last few months included  Selling Up Your Own Small  Business and Conversational  Spanish for Beginners.  Credit free activities are  offered on a cost recoverable  basis, so they will only run if  sufficient registration is received to cover the costs.  Pre-registration is stressed so  that planning and information  as to the status of the course  may be given to students.  The design and execution of  credit courses is the responsibility of the college administration at the main campus.  Credit free courses however  may be designed or co-sponsored by local groups in  response to what are seen as  local needs. Groups interested  in educational opportunities  of a credit free nature should  consult with the local Community Services Assistant,  April Struthers, as to the  possibilities of the College's  Sechelt Learning Centre being  able to fill the need.  Beginning early in January  the new Spring Term will  start. The Learning Centre  will probably offer three  credit courses and a number of  credit free courses. Information will be published in  local papers very soon as to  registration procedures. For  other information or to utilize  the services available (counsellors, library and learning  assistance) please contact the  Centre at 885-9310, Inlet  Avenue in Sechelt.

B.C  St. Mary's Hospital VON 3A0  Dee Cee arrives in Glengarry County  Ramblin&s   of a Rover  by Dee Cee  I had anticipated that the  good people at the Greenwood  Inn would be upset when 1  announced my intention of  leaving them and joining my  friend Jensen in Glengarry,  Ontario, but I was not prepared  for the harrowing experience  ahead of me when the actual  time came for bidding them  farewell.  In the first place "Big Jim"  Rooney was vehemently opposed to my riding a freight  from Moncton, New Brunswick, to Montreal. As he  pointed out, I had more than  the price of a railroad ticket  and he even went so far, seeing  that I was trying to hold on to  the almost $200 I had earned  and saved, as to offer to pay for  the journey, but I would have  none of it and was adamant I  was going to "ride the rods".  After all it was only a short hop  of less than 400 miles and the  early fall weather was ideal for  the trip. So reluctantly he  agreed to drive me into the city  of Moncton and leave me off at  the freight marshalling yards  on the evening of my departure.  Next I had to deal with "Ma"  Saunders. That good lady must  have been under the impression  I was planning either an  expedition to the South Pole or  possibly was contemplating  circumnavigating the globe as  the "lunch" she prepared for me  to take along would literally  have half filled a box car,  should I be lucky enough to  find an empty one for my  transportation. There were  sausage rolls and sandwiches,  meat pies and apple turnovers,  a huge block of cheese and  many other goodies, such as  jam tarts, that were hardly  suitable for stowing in a  packsack. Not wanting to hurt  her feelings I agreed to take  them along but mentally I was  hoping that I would encounter  other hoboes who would gladly  relieve me of some of the  burden before boarding the  freight and I did, much to their  appreciation and obvious enjoyment of her superlative  cooking.  All of this taken care of, the  next one to be contended with  was "Little Jimmy" who, when  he heard 1 was leaving, had  simultaneously decided that he  had had enough of school and  was going to accompany me. I  must admit that possibly I was  partly to blame for this decision  as I had told him some hair-  raising stories of my adventures  in riding the freight trains and  of the hard but carefree life in  the lumbercamps, which would  fire the imagination of any boy  in his early teens. In order to  dissuade him and I certainly  didn't want to be encumbered  by a 14 year oid boy, I had to lie  and compromise by saying  when I got settled I would send  for him, but when the actual  evening arrived his father, "Big  Jim", had to get really stern and  threaten to lock him in his  room until my departure if he  wouldn't listen to reason.  Even the shy and rather  reserved Sybil, Rooney's married daughter got into the act  by breaking into tears while the  final goodbyes were being said,  but eventually I did get away  and was left off at the yards by  good old "Big Jim".  The trip was uneventful and  in due course I arrived in  Montreal and here, sad to  relate, all my carefully laid  plans went awry. I had hoped,  by husbanding my stake, to  meet Mogens Jensen on his  farm with '.he greater part of it  still intact. Alas I knew Montreal too well and all the good  intentions somehow slipped by  the wayside, so that after  visiting Madame Lafleur's  place several times and indulging in the fleshpots of that  wicked city for almost a week, I  was startled to find one morning that my original $200 had  somehow shrunk till now all I  had was a little over thirty.  Mogens and I had kept in  touch duringthe time that I had  been in New Brunswick and  now I remembered one of the  things he had mentioned in his  letters. Apparently according  to him everything was going  well on his newly acquired farm  but he was losing many of his  chickens to hawks and other  predators. I think I must have  mentioned this to "Big Jim" or  to someone else, who came up  with the suggestion that what  he (Mogens) needed was a pair  of guinea-fowl. According to  my informant they would act as  watchmen over a block of hens  and by their screams and  aggressive behaviour would  drive off any birds of prey that  I EXCAVATING I  PACIFIC GADC0 CONSTRUCTION  Land Clearing, light or heavy  Road Construction ��� Excavation ��� Logging  Bulldozer ��� Backhoe ��� Grader ��� Front End Loader  Gravel Truck - Skidder 886-7287 886-7951 886-7142  Sunshine Coast  Business Directory  J.B.EXCAVATING  886-9031  Water, sewer, drainage installation   *_  ��� Dump Truck ���  Backhoe  ��� Caf ���  Land Clearing  ��� Free Estimates ��� Septic Fie'ds  RUFUS BULLDOZING  ��� Land Clearing ��� Excavating  Dary��� * Dram Fields      gg6-9739  Bin. installations  17 Years Experience  Commercial And Residential  ���jm Floor Coverings  ��  ��  I APPLIANCES I  HARRISON'S APPLIANCE SALES  '^-j* Parts and Service  ^����S��]       Tuesday ��� Saturday 9 ��� 5  iG I      886-9959 Pratt Rd..

Even in  my "rum-dum" state I managed  to find a farmers' market in the  city somewhere between the  Bonaventure Station and the  waterfront and, on the afternoon of my leaving, I purchased a pair of these handsome birds.  I had been told that Greenfield Ontario, was more or less  equidistant from both Montreal and Ottawa so, seeing that  now I not only had a heavy  packsack but a large box  containing the fowl, 1 bought a  ticket to that small station in  Glengarry County. I was  informed that it was only a  whistle stop or flag station so 1  had to tell the conductor when 1  wanted to get off. This I failed  to do, probably because I was  about "half cut" when I got on  the train and had another  unopened crock of rye in my  pack. Besides I was completely  worn out by all the activities I  had been indulging in before  leaving so I was hardly on the  train when I fell asleep. I think 1  must have been dreaming when  faintly, as from a far distance, 1  heard someone calling "Greenfield, Greenfield, anyone for  Greenfield?" By the time I came  to my senses we were past the  station and rapidly gaining  speed. Grabbing my packsack,  the carton containing the birds  and, at the very last moment,  the partly consumed bottle of  rye, I rushed from the car and  not pausing a moment, hurled  first the pack, then the cardboard box and, still clutching  the rye, jumped off into the  night.  I tore the knee out of m>  pants, had a gravel-scratched  face and hand but miraculous!)  hadn't broken the bottle. The  poor guinea-fowl were still in  the box but screeching their  heads off. Perhaps they unknowingly were letting the  inhabitants of this lovely  county of Glengarry know thai  "Dee Cee" had linallv arrived!

Maybe. But I excuse  myself with the intention of  passing on something which I  have read and enjoyed or  found of special interest to  others who might not otherwise read it. I've just received  the Winter issue of a little  Magazine called "Common  Sense" published in the  Kootenays by Bob Harrington.  His Christmas editorial seems  no less relevant to our New  Year resolutions - at least to  mine. So, without apology 1  give you Bob Harrington:  ' 'Today I trudged through a  foot of snow along a woodland  trail. Large flakes of snow  were wafting downward  across my path. A hush seemed to lay over the entire  land. No sound was to be  heard.  How strange, I thought to  myself, thai humans lead such  complex lives; seek to own so  many things and at the same  time long for peace. Peace  exists in simplicity, in the  natural things of life, and  when we turn away from them  it eludes us forever.  "As I wandered along, I  thought of the fact that the  radio this morning was reminding people that fev shopping days are left before  Christmas. Commercial enterprises were informng humans  that happiness is anything  from a diamond ring, to a  dishwasher, or a new snowmobile beneath the Christmas  tree. Happiness I realize, is  none of these things, as a  matter of fact, the more things  with which we clutter up our  lives, the less chance there is  of finding happiness.  "Consider how we are burdened with things. We spend  our lives working in order to  accumulate unwieldy furniture, and all sorts of gadgets  and knick-knacks. We stumble  over these things in our homes  and can't leave the house  without locking the doors for  fear our hoard of treasures  will be pre-empted by someone else. When summer  comes, we load all sorts of  items into cars or trucks to go  off on a summer vacation,  often hesitating to go very far  from the vehicle because of all  the treasures it contains. In  the meantime, we occasionally stop to worry about whether  or not we locked the basement  door before we left home.  "Of course a certain num  ber of "things" are reasonably necessary in order to live  comfortably. But the ability to  discriminate between what is  necessary and what is not  ncessary seems to have eluded  us. How many people do you  know personally, whose basements, attics and garages are  cluttered up with things they  will never use, but dont have  the moral fibre to give or  throw away? Perhaps you are  one of them? We could probably solve part of the energy  problem if we would just give  things away to one another,  the things we no longer use or  need. But Christmas being the  way it is, everyone will buy  everyone else something he or  she doesn't really need, and  each of us, in turn, will receive  things which we will put into  drawers, closets or somewhere where they wont be in  the way.  "There is a certain paradox  in this matter of possessions.  While we need certain things,  once we get beyond some indistinguishable point, we become burdened down with  what we own. As Bertrand  Russell commented: "It is  pre-occupation with possession, more than anything else,  that prevents man from living  life freely and nobly".  "It is very likely that we go  through stages in life. When  we are young, we look avidly  at various items and want  them. As we get older, we  realize that intangible possessions, things such as character, experience and wisdom  are of far more importance  than rooms full of inert items  we own. It is sadness indeed  to see someone so taken up  with matkerial items that he  spends his whole life accumulating things his relatives will  have to sift through and argue  over, when he has passed on  to another more meaningful sort of life.  "I ask myself, "What do I  want for Christmas?" Looking  around at the beautiful forest,  absorbing its winter coat of  life-giving snow I realized  there are two things I want.  One is that I want, always, the  ability to appreciate the  beauty of a world whose  creation was a marvel we  should never cease to contemplate. The second thing I  want or hope for, is to see humanity begin to appreciate the  splendour and majesty of the  natural world ��� to see humanity reach a point where;1' it  no longer despoils with t  remorse, but begins to real  its duty of stewardship towar  the earth - and believe me that  last one is a lot to hope fori 1".

Continue smoking but improve and polish  smoking manners. Will not  smoke in other person's car  nor blow smoke in other  person's face. Will stay out of  all places that "Thank me for  not smoking".  It has become increasingly  obvious that non-smokers are  in the ascendancy. OK,  but must they be so belligerent about it? Does their  agressive dislike of the pathetically hooked smoker have to  be so rude? In one store where  1 really shop a lot for unnecessary objects d'arts I  wandered in absent mindedly  aglow and the counter lady  attacked me. With a face  grimmer than Dante's mother-  in-law she slammed a dirty  ashtray under my nose and  hollered "Put it out!" I fell  back with "I beg your pardon" (that old saw) and I put it  and myself out of the shop.  Good Heavens.  We smokers have never  I 'shed non-smokers around  like this. We never cared that  they didn't smoke. Smokers  take their anger & tensions  out with mighty puffs and  racking coughing spells  rather than on other people.  Rarely do they push tobacco.  They have never been known  to put up signs which say  "Thank you for smoking" or  "Smoke". There is little force  involved in their affliction.  Smokers smell bad but so do  persons who don't wash.  There are no signs involving  the unwashed.  A non-smoking visitor arrived at my home for a short  stay and said "Please don't  smoke, it gives me asthma and  I don't like your puppy  either." Non-Smokers have  become almost as tense as the  Anti-Frivolity League and  the health food people. Pretty  soon they are going to hang  numbers around our necks  and cordon us off somewhere  outside near the garbage  pails. How about the persons  who have given up smoking  and now smoke only mine!  There are a great many of  those. They look virtuous,  mostly.  One parent to another  Let's face it, we all have protective instincts.  About life. And security. And the future. That's  the reason for life insurance.  Get in touch and talk it over.  I have a family too.  Geoff Hodgklnton,  Box 957,  Gibsons,!

Great plump bluebottle flies have awakened and  are flying stupidly around  buzzing loudly, hitting things  and falling down. Ugh. Voracious larvae are hatching  and aiming at your flowerbeds in platoons. Worried  grubs and overweight slugs  are stocking up against the  possibility of frost. Slug bait  is good (the mealy kind that  puppies don't want) and ask  your plant shop which dormant spray is good.  This is great weather for  planting those flowering  shrubs that you just never got  around to doing in the fall and  also for planting or transplanting trees. January is  also a splendid time to fold  your feet up by the fire and  dream your way through the  seed catalogues making  grand plans for 1981. You can  order in February or now  through the plant shops.  Actually why not visit your  favorite plant shop in order to  see what they are doing and  what is available?

Interest rates boon  for bursary fund  Most people deplore high  interest rates. However,  they have been a boon to the  Sunshine Coast Scholarship,  Bursary and Loan Society.  This society administers  funds donated by organizations and individuals to assist  students from School District  046 to obtain post secondary  education.  In 1980, according to the  reports submitted to the an  nual meeting in December,  the repayment of past loans to  students has been at a high  level and with increased interest rates the funds are available to keep more eligible students with either bursaries or  loans.  Inquiries should be directed  to a high-school counsellor or  to Mrs. B. Rankin at 885-9787  or Mrs. M. Richter at 885-  3394.

Events of the past eight  years have shown that the  meeting that destroyed the  1972 plan, dominated as it was  by a number of leather-lunged  individuals defending their  own commercial interests,  was probably not representative of majority opinion in the  community, since subsequent  political elections, development controversies and other  opinion indicators have without exception expressed a  desire for preservation of  existing community values  through orderly control.  This   time   around   regional  director Joe Harrison will  seek complete public consultation through a series of meetings, briefs, plebescites  and information exchanges.  Beginning this month, Ratepayers Report will start a  series analysing the plan as  it stands to date and talking  to some of the people who  have worked on it as well as  some of their critics.
