 \  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands      March 14,1988       Volume 42       Issue 11  Pollution control  upgrade on hold  and Ihe following day. Twelve hours after the fire began, firemen  were still hosing down the rubble to catch pockets of smouldering  debris. ���Penny Fuller pholo  Linda Mullcis inset  The raging blaze that engulfed Anderson Realty and three other  businesses lasl Friday morning in Sechelt was attended by three fire  departments, whose volunteers worked through the early morning  Offices gutted by fire  Firemen battle for hours  by Ken Collins  "Il looked like the whole  lown was burning!" said Rick  Dixon, owner of MacLeods in  Sechell.  He was speaking of the Friday morning lire thai left  realtor Stan Anderson's  building in the "Dock" on  Cowrie Slrcel reduced to a pile  of rubble. At around 4:(X) am  Dixon was awakened by a  phone call telling him that ihere  was a large lire on Cowrie  Slreet. Thai's when he looked  toward ihe lown centre one hall'  mile away and saw l he sky  glowing red.  "I knew there was no way we  could drive down the slrcel," he  said describing his arrival al the  scene. The heal was so intense  that painl blistered on Ihe opposite side of the street.  The fire broke oul in  Gourmet Mtincliie only days  before It's widely adverli/ed  opening. Owner Krislina Uoese  was jusi pulling Ihe finishing  touches on the newly renovated  establishment,  "There were only live ceiling  tiles to go," said one employee.  Linda Malloy who lives  across Ihe slrcel on ihe premises  of ihe Shadow Baux woke up io  ihe sound of crackling.  "The noise was so loud I  llioughl the trees were falling,"  she said. The flames were so  fierce she ihen llioughl her own  premises were on fire. She looked oul Ihe fronl and saw flames  inside Ihe Ciourmcl Mtincliie.  She quickly phoned Ihe lire  departmenl.  "1 don'l Ihink I was the first  one to lell ihem," she said.  "The line was busy (he firsl  time I dialed. By the lime I  finished phoning ihe flames  were coming oul al the from  and up Ihe back." Soon the en-  lire building housing Anderson  Really, Gourmet Mtincliie,  Lome Palon, and Ihe Garibaldi  Health Unil was engulfed.  "There were explosions and  windows started popping oul,"  said Malloy. "There were bright  red sparks all over Ihe place and  ashes all Ihe way lo the waterfront."  "I sure want lo commend the  fire department on iheir  response," said Dixon. "They  came very quickly."  When firemen arrived ihey  had lo slarl spraying from  across the street. According to  police spokesmen Ihere was a  lot of plywood and olher wood  comprising the internal structure which could account for  the intense heal. Dixon said he  saw flames shooting 12 lo 20  feel into the air.  By 9:30 the building was pretty well a burned oul shell and  Inspector Jim Yuile from ihe  provincial fire commissioner's  office was al ihe siie. Changing  from his suit lo rubber boots  and coveralls, he spent a good  pari of Ihe day silling through  Ihe soggy mess of charred  embers for clues lhat mighl help  explain the origins of Ihe blaze.  A large excavation shovel  cleared away precarious remains and turned over still  smoking remains lor firemen to  soak with waier. Healers and  olher barely recognizable electrical equipment were carefully  dismantled and checked lor any  signs of malfunction. The heat-  twisted remains of a clock  frozen in lime indicated ihe fire  could have started as early as  2:00 am.  Displaced tenants and Iheir  employees received spontaneous  hugs of support from a sympathetic and supportive business  community. Anderson Really  employee Bob Bull sel up a temporary office in a neighbouring  business and the telephone company was prompt in supplying a  line with his old number so lhal  clients calling in could be al  least informed of the circumstances.  "We have mosl of our properties multiple listed," said  Bull. He stated lhal ihis would  enable ihem lo reconstruct iheir  listings. Mosl if not all of iheir  files were losl bul Bull will still  be going through Ihe powdery  blackened contents of Ihe steel  drawers in the hopes that  something mighl be salvaged.  "Al one time or anolher we  have probably sold every house  on ihe coasl ai least once," said  Bull. "We even had ihe plans  on the septic fields for some  houses.  Owner Stan Anderson was  nol able lo be contacted. He  was on vacation in Ihe USA.  Upstairs tenants Garibaldi  Heallh Unil and lawyer Lome  Palon losl everything. Nol even  iheir floors remain .  Il was mil unlil later afternoon lhal ihe lire was considered dead and whatever remained ol' the walls were flattened into the ground. In a  statement released Saturday  evening ihe RCMP stated a conservative replacement cost for  Ihe building would be $250,000  excluding contents. The cause  of Ihe fire is so far being regarded as accidental.  The Sunshine Coasl Regional  Dislricl was petitioned last  Thursday by Canadian Foresl  Products to support Porl  Mellon in a bid to ask (he province for more lime lo come inlo line wilh pollution slandards.  According to Canfor  represenlalive Don Stuart, the  mill is planning on a complete  modernizalion which in ihree  years will exceed the mosl stringent pollution requirements,  bul Ihe mill is in a bil of a dilemma.  The planned modernizalion  will make the old leehnology  obsolete and will lake Ihree  years lo complete. The old  technology could be brought up  lo standards by spending 10  million dollars.  "Bul the 10 million would be  spent and then jusi bulldozed  away," said Stuarl.  In olher words, Canfor says  il is impossible lo meel standards wilhin ihree years bul al  lhai lime il will more lhan comply.  And the Canadian Pulp  Workers Union is in support of  Ihe mill. Vern Rollluff, local  CPU president, also spoke to  the Regional Board.  "We wanl lo mainlain our  jobs and we wanl a chance lo  work in an environmentally  sound environment," he said.  According lo Roltluff Ihe local  union has formed an environmental in-house commil-  lee and is keeping a close eye on  Ihe situation. In a previous interview he lold Ihe Coast News  lhal ihe workers are very concerned aboul pollution as they  are the ones who have to work  closest Io il and are allecled ihe  most.  But how bad is ihe presenl  pollution? Not lhat bad according to Stuart. Pollution controls are based on equipment  and not simply emissions he explained. You can be well within  emission standards depending  on your rate of production and  still violate the terms of your  permit.  "The pollution is quite heavy  at limes, in fact it is quite  unbearable at times," commented Director Shaske's alternate Tony Laver. "There are  some days you wonder if you  are going to choke on it."  Stuart conceded the mill  emissions still had a heavy impact on the community but not  on the environment as he explained that particle emissions  were low even though the odour  was still there.  "The odour emissions do not  change," he said and went on to  stale that air inversions did  change where they went.  Pari of Stuart's presentation  was a candid history of the long  struggle the mill has had to stay  in business in difficult times  coupled with the expense of the  race for technology. Al one  point they had been advised to  close or sell. This is where their  new Japanese partners come in  and Stuart forsees a bright  future ahead with a minimum  of pollution.  "Bul our Japanese partners  need assurance," Stuart said as  he asked for a strong statement  of support from the Regional  Board to counteract an anticipated vigorous lobby by  Terry Jacks and his West Vancouver supporters.  The Regional Board did pass  a motion of support thai also  will suggest to the Ministry of  Environment that it should  amend its regulations so that  they are viable and do not build  unrealistic expectations in the  public lhal lead them to believe  lhal ihey are being protected  when they may not be.  Zoning change?  Planner Rob Buchan informed Sechell Council ai last  Wednesday's meeting lhat an  applicalion has been received  from a developer for a sixty six  unit retirement village on  Browning Road, ncxi lo  Rockland Wynd.  The proposal is to invesl $5.5  million in a cluster development  complex. The developer is requested a change of /oning  from Rl to R2 as the plan calls  for double the density of  buildings provided for in Ihe  presenl Rl zoning. Buchan  pointed out however, thaj  because of Ihe nature of ihel  plan, ihere would be less people'  living in Ihe community than,  ihere would be wilh Rl zoning,';  which provides for multiple-";  members family dwellings.-;  Reliremeiil complexes usually*  have only iwo residents pet*  unil.  Council passed a molion to;  provide for first reading of the  plan, as well as a public hearing.  Wood Bay charged  The Sunshine Coast Regional District has agreed to bring  charges againsl Wood Bay Salmon Farm after continuing  complaints by residents in the area. Under Bylaw 264, Wood  Bay is not allowed to process fish that have not been on their  farm for a minimum of 90 days.  Upon investigation, Regional District representatives  found 'ample evidence of bylaw infraction'. The Board voted  unanimously last Thursday night to refer the matter to their  solicitor.  Indian District votes  The Sechelt Indian Band has now completed the second  phase of the legislative process implementing self-government  for the Band. On March 5, 173 of the eligible 232 voters turned out to vote on a referendum defining the powers of the  Sechelt Indian District. It was passed with 162 in favour and  10 opposed, with one spoiled ballot.

Some of us lend to forge! thai we, the human race, have  evolved from a rugged stock that once roamed the land  with stone clubs and clothed wilh only Ihe skins of  animals. And if we had to, we could do il again!  Bin there are ihose of us who are confident of this and  demonstrate a strength of spirit such as was displayed by  Gourmet Munchie's owner, Katrina Boese, when faced  with the totally devastating destruction of her freshly  renovated and about-to-be-opened business.  "Whai setback?" she boldly stated and nol unlike the  majority of coastal residents Is forging stalwattly ahead to  build her business yet another time.  And righl beside her, Bob Bull, an employee of another  htiincd oul business sels up a temporary office amidst the  nibble in order to minimize inconvenience in case a  customer wants to call. Ihere are olher places in the world  where employees would go home and start packing for a  two week vacation.  Local songwriter/singer Bob Carpenter is being  featured on a national CBC FM program. A crew from  Winnipeg, Manitoba specifically Hew oul here with other  well-known Canadian and American entertainers for a  three-hour recording session overlooking Georgia Slrait.

We are extremely lucky to live within the community of  the Sunshine Coast.  ���  v*  5 YEARS AGO  Offering a toilhrigltt assessment ol the financial position ol the Canadian Foresl Products pulp operation at  Poll Mellon, mill manager Harry Cargo and technical  superintendent Don Stuart soughl regional board support lasl week, for the mill's request for a ministerial  variance otder lor pollution control standards at Port  Mellon.  Having spent $21 million since 1977 on pollution con-  Itol, the mill is asking for a Iwo yeai delay in implementing two further pollution control projects, one a vent  stack scrubber and Ihe oilier, a recovety particulate con-  Itol.  Ihe opinion of Ihe union at Ihe mill was tepotled lo be  positive.  10 YEARS AGO  Police in Gibsons request thai the public lake Ihe time  to lock Iheir vehicles.

With the slow pound of the surf  providing n percussive  backdrop, five strong voices  joined in song and senl the  magic of Iheir music drilling  oul over the gulf.  They were a somewhat  disparale group on the surface  ���two fortyish folkies from Texas  and New York respectively; a  kid from Dawson Creek; a tall  farm girl from Kegina and long-'  lime local resident, Hob  Carpenter - bul they had a great  deal in common. All were professional singers and  songwriters of no mean ability.  All were totally dedicated to  their craft. They had gathered  here with a crew of radio-  technicians to pool iheir talents  for a segment of the Winnipeg-  based slereo show Simply Folk.  The idea for producing the  show hcie was the brainstorm  of the show's host. Milch  I'odolak, former labour activist, and a long time friend of  Carpenter and the oilier performers. An ardent folk-music.  fanatic, I'odolak has been  organizing folk festivals across  Canada for the pasl several  years. Two shows had been  laped on succeeding nights al  the East End Cultural Centre,  prior lo Ihis Sunshine Coasl session.  Reporter/photographer Ken  Collins and myself reach  Carpenter's house around 5:30,  ready lo cover the event for  local posterity, Our arrival coincides with that of Hob and the  two American performers, Tom  Paxlon and Jim Post.  Tom Paxton has been around  Ihe folk scene since Ihe early  60's. A native New Yorker, he  knew Phil Oehs and Bob Dylan  in the early Bleeker Street days.  Jim Post has been around Ihe  circuit almost as long. Texas-  born, he was originally a gospel  singer before branching oul inlo  more secular realms. We are introduced and dial brietly.  Soon Ihe radio crew shows  up, closely followed by Ihe  olher two performers. Roy  Forbes (formerly known as  Bim) is a talent I have long admired. Originally from Dawson  Creek, he first made an impacl  on the Vancouver music scene,  aboul 10 years back. I have  heard mosl of the cuts from his  excellent new album Love is  Like Ice, which lie produced  himself - and congratulate him  on it.  "Don't forget to give it a  plug," Roy laughs, "I need all  the help I can gel."  Tall, blonde Connie Calder  was working as a duo with Roy  Forbes until her recent move lo  Winnipeg. They recorded a  Christmas album logelher last  year. Connie, a friendly for-  llirighl lady is at present working on an album of lullabies.  "Almosl all my girlfriends seem  lo be having kids," she says.  Milch Podolak introduces the  show and Ihe performers -"Five  of the best songwriters in  America." As host, Bob  Carpenter gels to lead off on a  sel of love songs. He does  Nightfall, a haunling ballad  from his album. I knew Bob  was a line singer but had only  heard him performing cover  material before, most in the  noisy venues of various local  pubs. His original work is moving and impressive.  Roy Forbes is up next. He  enlisls Connie Caldcr's help on  a number called Sweet  Shameless Hours, from his current album. He wrote the tune  when a friend remarked thai  Ihey would like to hear a song  with thai title. It is a pleasantly  risque piece, done in Forbes'  one-of-a-kind high-tenor voice.  Connie Calder follows with  what she calls - "Not just a  'like' song bul a hardcore love  song." She doesn't give the tide. It's a pretty-enough piece,  excellently sung but not too  memorable.  Old pro, Tom Paxton takes  his turn with a radically different sort of love song, based  on the grim theme of wife battering. Entitled How Could I  l��uve Him, it is told from the  point of view of the hospitalized  woman. The stark tune draws  impressed comments from Ihe  other performers. Jim Post  remarks that not enough  songwriters have the nerve to  tackle such themes. Connie  Calder says il reminds her of  Jacques Brel.  Jim Post follows with  another sombre piece about ihe  love between his grandparents,  that only ends with his grandfather's death. Bul he has nol  performed the song for years, is  dissatified with his playing and  finally abandons it in favour of  an up-tempo number called  Light Hearted Lover.  There is some discussion over  whal direction the show should  lake next. Milch suggests that  each   player  do   his   or   her  favourite song. They kick this  around bul none of the playets  can decide on such a song.  Finally, Jim Post announces  that lie has remembered the  chord changes for the song  about his grandparents. It is a  very moving piece, well-worth  waiting for. Entitled Three Soft  Touches (in reference to a lifelong love code the two had), it  ends with the image of the  grandfather's soul "flying like a  hawk to the moon."  Roy Forbes now decides on a  song that is particularly important to him. During his early  career, he became extremely  depressed after bad dealings  with agents and was unable to  write for over a year. When the  drought eventually broke, it was  with a fine song called Looking  All Over The World. He performs a fine typical high-voiced  version of this wistful pretty  tune. "You're back all right,  Roy," remarks Tom Paxton.  Bob Carpenter tells how he  has started writing poetry (as  opposed to song lyrics) again,  for the first time in many years.  He reads an odd evocative little  poem called Chinese Anchors.  Jim Post announces that he  has also written a poem but it's  loo erotic to read. Connie  joshes with him and the group  takes a break. Local musician,  Ken Dalgleish shows up with  keyboards and an amp that  Connie has requested.  To be continued...  Hi  Evening Song  On these evenings that sort of roll In  With the delicate curtain of a Georgia sunset.  The day walks away on quiet, light steps  Taking the events of history in its pockets.  Ron Black  Fish plant workers need protection  by Richard Hemingway  Regarding Ken Collins' slory  'NDP researches fish farming',  Coasl News, March 22.  Considering there are over  one dozen fish farms already  established on Ihe Sunshine  Coast this Investigation seems  long overdue. There is an obvious need for regulalions  covering Ihis new and rapidly  expanding industry. Not only  for the protection of our  enrivonment, however.  Locally we are in the  forefront of a new food producing industry. 1 adamantly support new local industry and Ihe  potential of increased local  employment it may offer.  The studies being done are  specifically aimed at protecting  our environment, which I cer-  lainly support. However, there  is only one paragraph that mentions the protection of this industry's employees and no mention of any regulations that will  guarantee consumers a safe,  high quality food product.  There are, at present, governmenl icgiilalions and standards  covering employee safely and  working conditions.  in most other food producing  industries there are government  inspectors and graders that ensure safe quality food products.  These farm raised fish have  been available for public consumption for more than a year  without any government standards or tests regarding quality.  1 am currently employed at a  processing plant that kills,  cleans, grades and packages  farm raised salmon. To the  dismay of myself and others  connected with this industry,  the government seems willing to  turn a blind eye to violations of  standards already in place. Unfortunately, the industry itself is  more concerned with profits  than it is with safely or quality.  It appears the only people concerned about safety or quality  are the managers and employees  of the processing plants.  Through the course of an  average day, employees are expected to perform some or all of  the following duties:  Fish arc pumped out of a  boat into large plastic containers, (totes) roughly the size  of a bath tub. These are live,  free swimming fish.  The surface of the water is  covered with two to four inches  of crushed ice. Employees are  required to submerge their  hands and forearms into this  frigid water and grab a two to  nine pound salmon.  This task is performed while  wearing rubber gloves, the kind  many people use to wash their  dishes, which offer little or no  protection from the icy water. I  have done this for up to three  hours without a break, at the  end of which, movement of  your fingers becomes difficult.  After you grab a fish you  pass it to a person that must  hold the fish down and lift the  gill plate with one hand and cut  through the gills with a sharp  knife with the other hand. Trying to hold a two to nine pound  lish down on a slippery plastic  surface while wielding a knife  within twelve inches of four  fellow employees will certainly  result in the injury of someone  sooner or later.  Once the gills have been cut  the fish are dropped into  another tote full of cold water,  where they bleed to death.  When the tote is full of bleeding  fish the blood-filled water is  drained off and replaced with  fresh water and six to eight inches of crushed ice.  These fish sit in this water  and ice for as long as ten hours  before their internal organs are  removed.  These fish are emptied onto a  large stainless steel table where  they are gutted and cleaned.  Once again employees are required to stand within inches of  a person using a knife.  The fish are cut open, passed  to the next person who removes  the internal organs, and passes  the fish to the next person that  removes all traces of blood.

The main reason lhat  children are hungry in Vancouver is the price of accommodation. I think we should be  thinking aboul ihis problem in  Gibsons because there has been  talk of following the lead of  other municipalities and gelling  rid of illegal suites.  While there are good reasons  to regulate rental accommodations, 1 think that we should  keep in mind the fact that  anything that reduces the  number   of   available   suites  makes for higher rents, and puts  a squeeze nol only on ihe poor,  bul on moderate income earners  who have not been fortunate  enough to be able to afford  iheir own homes yet.  I don't think lhal people here  realize ihe scenario in Vancouver. A single mother with  Iwo children is eligible for a rental allowance from welfare of  $429. This does not go far in the  city. A woman friend of mine  renls a balchelor suite in Vancouver for $500. This is not luxury accommodation. There is  no storage space. The kilehen is  the size of a large closet.  You can imagine, ihen, what  a single mother of two will get  for $429 (the Shelter Allowance  includes hydro). One family I  know (Iwo adults, two children)  bring in a working-poor salary  of aboul $1000 a month. Out of  this Ihey pay $600 for a not  especially nice main floor of a  house in a nol great part of  Vancouver. And they consider  themselves lucky.  Those being gouged more  callously can budget until  ihey're blue in the face. They,  and iheir kids, will of course  have an inadequate diet.  Minimum wage, I will remind  you, is only $4 per hour. A  friend recenlly reported that  he'd mcl a young woman in the  city who had a job as a pizza-  delivery person al $5 per hour.  She was expected to provide her  own vehicle. She was using her  bicycle.  The Sunshine Coasl is one  place where ihe poor can usually manage withoul seeing [heir  kids go hungry. I ihink lhat  Town Councel should give ihis  fact careful consideration  before Ihey gel rid of illegal  suites. The argument mighl be  made that folks can choose to  rem outside of city limits. This  poses another dilemma  -transportation - what is saved  in rent can easily be used up  maintaining a vehicle.  Anne Miles  11947 Tannery Rd., Surrey  MONOAV-SATURDAV  sV We also buy used building materials  ���311  ion to late French Immersion  Editor:  I would like lo commend the  School Board for their recent  decision not lo bow lo the  pressure broughl to bear by a  small minority of parenls lo implement a highly questionable  program called "Laic French  immersion". Under this program students in Grade 6,  whose entire previous school experience has been in English,  would be stuck into an immersion program and lose an entire  year of schooling while Ihey  tried to become proficient  enough in French lo learn the  material Iheir peers are learning  in English.  The entire concept of immersion is in question now as the  first graduates of immersion  programs are entering universities. A recent study released by  Carleton University has shown  lhal mosl graduates of immersion programs really do nol use  French extensively, even in  areas where a large concentration of French speaking population exists.  My main point is not to  debate the relative worth of immersion programs bul lo insist  that if immersion programs are  started, Ihey must nol become a  burden on Ihe existing financial  and administrative structure of  ihe public school system. Our  existing school system is being  starved of funds and with a  functional illiteracy rale of close  lo 30 per cent in Canada we  cannol afford lo diffuse our efforts to improve basic education  levels.

Interest in the Association swells and dies with the  issues of concern but It's an important entity in the community  and deserves more support at all  times.  MARCH MUSIC  March came in with a flurry  of fine entertainment in Roberts  Creek. If you weren't "Seduced" by the Driftwood Players'  performance at the Community  Hall, you had to be swayed by  the musical talents of  Murgatroyd, Dalgleish and  Dunn at the Little Legion.  The beautiful strong voice of  Signi Murgatroyd was richly  combined with the versatility of  her partners. A few guesl  numbers by saxophonist Kerry  Fowler and her father were an  added treat. Il was good dancing and great listening.  If you missed it, don'l worry,  they'll be back in the near  future. This weekend tiddler  Dan Sheppard returns wilh  Elliott and Gustasson on guitar  and banjo. This is a real up-  and-coming combo so drop in  for a listen.

Pender Patter  Pender Lioness project abandoned  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  The Pender Harbour Lioness  Club has been working diligently on restoration of (he old lr-  vines Landing schoolhouse,  built in 1931, to enhance Ihe  community as a heritage  building, museum, and Lioness  clubhouse.  The work has stopped, and  the following excerpts from a  letter dated March 4, which I  received from the Pender Harbour Lioness Club explains  why:  "We were in the process of  removing the old roof and  found extensive rot under the  three consecutive roofs which  had even crept down into (he  walls. The cost of repairing this  would be major and we could  not deal with il within our  budget. Needless lo say, we are  abandoning this project with  deep regret, we all have very  warm feelings toward the old  school - il has a lol of character  and for some people a lot of  memories."  DR. IIOII IN ABSENT  Dr. Boilen (Van Loon) has  gone to Toronto for treatmenl  of a serious medical condilion,  and Drs. Swan and Hobson will  provide medical care in her  absence at the Pender Harbour  and District Health Clinic.  On behalf of Dr. Boilen,  Clinic Chairman Bill Griffiths  explained thai her illness has  recently caused her severe head  and facial pain. The doctor feels  that her patients may have  noticed a change in her  behaviour and reassures them  lhat any shortness in her manner was due only to Ihe pain she  was suffering.  We wish her a complete and  speedy and recovery.

Kay Dombrowski had left the  house to go lo church just after  9 am and by ten o'clock the  house was gone.  At the time Ihe fire broke out  the Halfmoon Bay Volunleer  Fire Department were assembled al Coopers Green for an exercise, a matter of about five  minutes away, and were on the  scene within minutes of receiving the alarm.  Unfortunately ihe call was  made lo the operator who in  turn called Ihe Sechelt Fire  Department. Nobody's fault  really, but an indication of the  importance of having local fire  departmenl numbers clearly on  your phone.  All Ihe firemen carry pagers  and are contacted immediately  so are at the scene in no time at  all.  Kay has asked if I, through  this column, would lei ihe  firemen and everyone know  how very grateful she was to all  Ihese fellows who gave up their  day off work to help al ihe  scene. She couldn't praise Ihem  highly enough for Iheir kindness  and dedication and for spending  almost ihe whole day in  amongst all the din and ashes.  Also thanks lo all her friends  who were so kind and concerned.

Cable Eleven  Despite Nick Mancuso's  fluency in English, it was not his  firsl language. The magnetic actor came by his Latin good  looks naturally. Born in Mam-  mola, Italy in 1949, he spent his  first six years in the ancient  mountain town. Nick's mother  was a local woman but his  father's people were Sicilian.  "The Mancusos are a bit  mysterious. They were mostly  guitar makers; goldsmiths-  artisans of one son or another.  My father's a carpenter - a very  good one. His family fled Sicily  around 1850 afler tormenting  an unsuccessful revolution  againsl the Spaniards, who occupied part of the island then,  The Mancusos made iheir way  to Ihe southern mountains of  Italy which were a sort of no-  man's land at the lime. It's a  very ancient area that hasn't  changed much in 2,000 years."  At Nick's Baptism, a  fascinating incident occurred  thai turned out to be more than  a lillle prophetic.  "The old tradition of travelling mummers was still in existence and apparently, a troupe  of these performers were invited  to my Christening. There was a  very famous clown in the Com-  edie del Arte tradition, travelling with the group. He held me  in his arms and declared that I  was going to be an actor."  Although Mancuso loday is  very much the urbane man of  the world, he remains fiercely  proud of his simple peasant  roots.  "Where I came from, people  didn'l wear shoes and ale one  meal a day - usually cheese,  bread and a few olives. Meat  was a luxury. They got up at  5:00 o'clock in Ihe morning and  Ihey worked.

North  America was still the Land of  Opportunity to most Europeans  and Nick's father was no exception. He emigrated lo Canada in  Ihe carly 1950's lo establish a  domestic beachhead.  "I came over wilh my mother  and sister, when I was six years  old. Il was a huge cattle ship.  There were hundreds of Italian  women and their kids, travelling  with us in steerage. Half of  them were seasick and Ihe whole  place slank of vomit. The  husbands of the women had  come Io Canada several years  earlier and worked there until  their families were able lo join  Ihem."  Nick's early experiences in  Canada were confused and  unpleasant. He recalls ihem  vividly and not withoul some  bitterness.  "My first memory was of  kids wearing coonskin caps and  Ihe Davy Crockett song playing  On ihe radio. 1 came from a  totally alien culture. I couldn't  understand any of it. We moved  into an Irish/English  neighbourhood in Toronto.  There were very few other  Italians there and I used to get  beaten up all the time. Il wasn't  just the fact that I was a  foreigner - I also had a pretty  good mind. In a couple of  years, after I'd learned English,  I went to the lop of my class  and lhal didn'l make me loo  popular either. Ii wasn't  fashionable back then lo be  smart or differenl.

L  mmmm Rhythms of Life  Coast News, March 14,1988  13.  Resolving contradictions within  ROBERTS CREEK LEGION i  by Penny Fuller  The wonderful thing about  living in Ihis modern world is  the wide range of choices we  have. You can turn on the news  at jupperlime or bedtime and,  depending on the kind of day  you've had, you can choose to  get upset about what's happening anywhere in the world you  like.  If it's been a hard day, you  may choose lo just relax and get  annoyed at what's happening  locally. After you've resled lor  a while and gel your second  wind, you might decide lo fly  into a rage aboul ihe situation  in a wide, ever-changing selection of exotic ports.  None of these choices are  restricted by your race, religion,  economic strata or political  orientation. Whether you're a  nazi or a commie, or any of Ihe  spectrum in between, I can just  aboul guarantee lhal during Ihe  lasl few months you've become  firmly convinced lhal we're all  going lo hell in a hanclbasket.  This 'season of discontent' is  reflected in a planetary tango  Arts Beat  Memorable film  lhal has been going on since the  New Year, and will continue  until December. 1 think it is interesting to note thai the extremes represented by Saturn  (restrictions) and Uranus  (revolution), the partners in Ihis  dance, seem lo be occurring on  an internal level for a lol of people as well as in the world al  large.  Since early January, Saturn  and Uranus have been aligned  in the heavens, like beads sharing a single thread. On an internal level, Ihis indicates a growing awareness of Ihe things in  our lives that are holding us  back, dragging us down.  It doesn't mailer whether it's  our children or parenls, our job  or lack of money, our spouse's  bullying or our own sense of inadequacy, many people are suddenly feeling like they're trapped by ihe conditions of Iheir  lives.  They're also, lo one degree or  anolher, plot ting their  breakout. A feeling of almost  unbearable tension sometimes  seems  to  hit,  as  individuals  wrestle with these two contradictory aspects of  themselves.  Withoul making any judgement aboul which end of Ihe  political spectrum is right or  wrong it is obvious lo me lhat  the same kind of conflict is  being acted oul in all areas of  our external world. Il really  doesn't matter whether you're  talking about our little province  or all of South East Asia, extreme restrictions are being imposed and extreme rebellion is  the response - Salurn vs Uranus  in Ihe second round.  The challenge al Ihis lime is  the same (whether you deal on a  family level or are in a position  (o affect international events) is  lo balance and use Ihe energies  of restriction and revolution  logelher for an effective constructive rebuilding of your life.  The new hypersensitivity that  you're feeling toward the things  lhal are holding you back can  be a catalyst to examine where  your needs are being met and al  whal cosl. These are limitations  thai you've chosen for  yourself, have you outgrown  your need for them? Are the  same needs still there? If so,  while you may nol like the reality you've created, the ball and  chain lhat you've chosen may  slil! be whal you need lo feel  safe.  This doesn't mean lhat you  can't change your conditions.  Bin you may try lo throw ihe  baby oul wiih ihe bathwater.  The Iwo opposing energies lhal  are reflected in Saturn and  Uranus can be resolved in  disciplined change. Simply reacting lo ihe conflict  withoul  thinking  il   through could  be  disastrous,  Try to analyze whai changes  and compromises are needed to  permit a fuller expression of  your individuality, Use practical, mundane methods to accommodate freedom. This  could include anything from a  new    budget    to   exchanging  babysitting; ii could email looking for a new job (before you  quil Ihe old) or physically  relocating to a new place.  Il may lake a while lo find  your cenlre long enough io consider your alternatives in a  creative lighl, bul ihis is going  on for ai least another ten  months, so you have lime.  There's your choice. You can  use this lime lo adjust your life  in a way lhal will give you the  freedom you need, or you can  end up a baskel case. Il will be  interesting to watch which  choices are made on the International scene.  6   I   N  Roberts Creek  Community Hall  00  TO 00  Tuesday, March 15th - 7:15 Start  Doors Open 5:30  B.C.

Under the Volcano was made  in 1984 and will be presented at  the Arts Centre on March 16 at  8 pm.  Albert Finney puts forward a  I memorable performance as the  alcoholic Englishman abroad,  I retaining the trappings of his  dignity amid the steadily declining fortunes of his private life.  But Under the Volcano is not  entirely pessimistic - it is also a  celebration of humanness.  Admission is S3.50/S3 at the  door.

Better  still, if you feel the pangs of hunger you can be sure that your  appetite will be well satisfied by a visit to the restaurant.  The Friday night special is prime rib with baked potato and a  nice selection of vegetables. I decided to try this fare as I had  noticed several local work crews enjoying their hearty meals. It  was served with green peppers, carrots and onions, all piping hot  and a serving of beef sufficient to satisfy someone twice my  weight.  My husband chose the New York steak with prawns, rather  than fish and chips which are always excellent at Ruby Lake.  Although neither of us desired a dessert, the selection  available was most tempting. Chocolate cheesecake, jumbo cinnamon buns, fresh homemade pies offering apple, raisin, cherry  and blueberry, and butter tarts.  This coming Thursday, March 17 will be the start of a new  and welcome innovation at Ruby Lake. Thursdays will be  Senior's Night and dinners will be on for half price. This should  prove to be a popular evening at the restaurant since there are  many seniors who live alone and don't always go to the trouble  of making a decent meal just for one.

Sunshine Coast Boxing Club  coach Barry Krangle was recently elected Provincial Coach for  the 1988 Senior Boxing Championships slated as the Olympic  Trials in Edmonton, Alberta  March 17, 18, 19 and 20.  "This year's national championships will be extremely  tough" said Krangle. "Boxers  who show well at the Nationals  may earn a berth to challenge  national team members for an  Olympic position."  The final decision, however,  rests with the Canadian Olympic Committee who reserve the  authority to select competitors  based on experience and world  ranking.  Mr. Krangle and the BCABA  do not feel it is advantageous  for the BC team to send competitors jusi for the experience  or for the chance of an easy  draw into the medals.  "No weight class or any draw  will be easy this year," Krangle  added.  Canada has achieved, for the  firsl time in boxing history, a #5  world ranking behind East Germany, USSR, USA and Cuba.  This calibre will be reflected in  Edmonton.  B.C.'s medal hopefuls begin  with Geronimo Bie, 119 lbs,  Astoria Boxing Club; Tony  Duffy, 147 lbs, Sunshine Coast;  Ron Paskie 156 lbs, Astoria;  Jim Worril, 132 lbs, Astoria;  Tony Francis, 125 lbs, Maple  Ridge and John Hilleck, 139  lbs, Vancouver Boxing Centre.  Manny Sobrei, 147 lbs, from  Astoria will be representing the  National Team, which enters  the tournament as its own entity, competing for points against  the provinces.  Aside from Sobrei, Duffy  will be on the alert for Nick  Rupa from Ontario. Rupa, won  a controversial decision over  Sobrei last spring and earned a  spot on Canada's Pan Am  team.  Shane Vilatel, also from Ontario,   and   Quebec's   Mario  Bergerion will also provide stiff  competition.  Following the Nationals next  weekend, which are also slated  as the Olympic Trials, top competitors will box off next month  in Quebec where the final  Olympic selection will hopefully  be made.  Youth Soccer notes  By the time you read this the  year end tournament will be just  a few days away. Only one  more weekend of soccer left and  then your time is your own, that  is until Softball starts up. Back  to the soccer scene, your son or  daughter's coach will have the  schedule for the tournament by  now. Please have a look at it.  Last year one age group's  standings al the end of the day  were close and depending on  how you interpreted the tournament rules you could have had  two differenl teams winning the  lournament.  So parents, if you have any  questions about the rules of the  tournament please ask one of  the three area representatives to  clarify the rules for you. The  area representatives are Graham  Chapman, Jim Brown and Leif  Mjanes.  Parents and coaches, we  would like all the uniforms collected as soon as possible after  the tournament ends. Usually if  the uniforms aren't collected  within the first two weeks we  seem to lose track of them, so  please make an effort to get  them to the coach quickly and  then he can give them to the  equipment manager to store for  next year.  I have to mention one game  this time and if you look at the  team scores for the 10 and 11  year olds you will notice one  team has seventeen losses, no  ties, no wins.  Well, on Saturday, they lost  again bul parents from both  teams told the coach thai the  game they played on Saturday  was the besl game they played  this year. I would like to con-  gratulale Ihem and tell them  lhal they can still win the tournament.

Coast News, March 14,1988  Rescue volunteers trained  State Of The Art  MARINE ELECTRONICS L  "Canada has the world's  longest coastline! Lives are at  stake! Five percent of cases are  lost forever!" These were only-  some of the multitude of details  given out by FCAF Captain  Harvey May al PEP presentation iwo weekends ago.  The Provincial Emergency  Program has an air rescue program lhat is supported by ihe  cooperative participation of  both federal and provincial  governments, It is staffed by  volunteers and has the technical  support of Ihe RCAF.  The people gathered al  Sechell Alport ihis weekend are  lo learn how lo become spotters.  "I'm here lo assist. My job is  liaison officer," says Captain  May as he starts his presentation.  "A spotter's role is vital," he  continues, "You are io act as  ihe main eyes of the aircraft."  He wenl on lo explain lhal the  pilol is busy piloting and ihe  navigator is busy navigating so  it is up lo you lo spol Ihe litlle  scratch in the snow speeding  along 500 io 5000 feel away.  Thai liltle scratch is ihe one lhal  mighl indicate a missing aircraft.  And driving home the  seriousness of Ihe exercise, he  graphically describes Irue life  examples of the fate of people  thai befall ihem when the search  planes fly over Ihem without  nolicing them.  A Buffalo aircraft from CFB  Comox is scheduled lo land ai  Sechell and lake ihe volunteers  for a training run. There will be  actual people placed on the  ground lhal musl be found.  Bui the winds are high and  gusty. The weather is nol good.  Anolher lesson from Ihe RCAF  is demons! raled.  "We do nol lake chances,"  says Captain May, "bin we will  lake calculated risks. "The Buffalo does nol come bul if we  were a downed aircraft it probably would.  Instead of the flight, instructional videos are shown. How  searches are conducted, whal  spotters have lo do and whal is  expected  of  ihem,  and  also  some of the reasons airplanes  crash. Il is demonstrated that  lighting can cause even mountain peaks to be camouflaged in  from of ones higher bul much  farther away. It is demonstrated  that flying in some situations  can be dangerous.  But Hying is also a necessary  means of transportation in  Canada, points out Captain  May, and there are large expanses of unpopulated  wilderness to traverse.  Captain May slates a simple  reality lhal ihe airforce jusi can  no longer do il all.  "There is a search portion  and a rescue portion," says  May. "We are relying more and  more     every     dav     on  volunteers,"he said speaking of  the search portion.  PEP (Air) as it is presently  called is looking for a new  name. Il is a member of Civil  Air Search and Rescue  (CASAR) which is paid half for  by DND and half for by  Transport Canada. As well as a  new name il is looking for  volunteers and you don'l have  to be a pilol. Colourblindness  would be a liability and self-  discipline is important said  May. A sign of irresponsibiliiy  and you simply won't be asked  back, he pointed out.  Locally, ihe coasl will be having a committee formed and  whose Area Deputy is Ernie  Montgomery, He will be guided  by Deputy Area Chief of the  Lower Mainland Region, Mur  ray Lundburg who in turn is  guided by Provincial Air Chief  Bob Goldie. There are a total of  six regions. All positions are unpaid volunteer ones.  I!  886-8686  Coming To  GIBSONS Marina  Detail* Nut Utile  School board notes  Last week's School Board  meeling was held al Cedar  Grove School and trustees and  parenls were treated to a  delightful demonstration by  students and teachers of the  school's 'whole language' approach lo learning lo read.  In other School Board news,  Ihe Board, in response lo a petition from Sandy Hook parents,  decided to reconsider an earlier  decision against extending the  afternoon school bus run in Ihe  area. Parents were promised  lhal a decision would be made  at ihe nexl meeting.  A letter from Therese Egan,  President of the Arts Council,  clarified thai group's position  on Ihe ownership of the  Yamaha grand piano which is  presently used by schools and  other community groups. The  Board decided thai the piano  should become the property of  the District but remain available  for community use.  The matter of vending  machines at Chatelech Secondary School received a mixed  response from Board members.  Trustee Lynn Chapman was opposed lo ihe idea on the grounds  thai il would contribute lo ihe  junk food habit, and Trustee Al  Lloyd staled, "This could be  opening the door lo a pack of  troubles we really don'l need.

Gardening  by Marguerite  This is the week we wear something green on St.  Patrick's Day, and the first day of spring follows a  few days later.  Did you know that the shamrock, the flower  emblem of Ireland which grows there profusely,  really belongs to the clover family. Agriculturists and  farmers plant it, as a nitrogen fixer and soil improver, then plow it in the soil, stimulating higher  yields.  The shamrock pea (known here as Oxalis) with  cobalt blue or white flowers, is useful as a potted  plant, or in hanging baskets, blooming nearly year-  round under ideal conditions.  The Gibsons Garden Club meeting will be held on  Thursday, March 17 in the Marine room at 7:30. Old  and new members and guests welcome. The guest  speaker will be Mr. John Ostendorf of Sunshine  Coast Highway Nursery. The subject being propagation and cultivation. He grows everything himself on  ihis coast.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Police news  GIBSONS RCMP  A break-in and theft on February 27 at a Gower  Point residence has been solved. A young male offender will be charged with possession of stolen property and a female young offender has charges of  break-and-enter pending.  A 16 year old Bonniebrook resident has charges  pending for break, enter and theft. Household goods  were taken from a cabin in Bonniebrook during  February.  Following an investigation on March 2, a 24 year  old Gibsons male is being charged with narcotic trafficking.  About 2:30 am on March 5 when police answered  a call aboul a break-in at the Village Store on Marine  Drive, they were directed by a citizen to the government wharf.  They arrested two adult males who were trying to  escape by boat. The two males have been charged  with the break-in and theft and will appear in Provincial Court in Sechelt on April 5.  Fishplant workers  need protection  Continued from page 2  This is done at a rate of three fish per minute with  cold water running over your hands at all times.  Added to the risk of being cut with a knife or  damaging the joints of your fingers due to the continual exposure to the cold water is the risk of  bacterial infection entering your body through small  cuts caused by fish teeth.  There is also the risk of tendon damage of your  forearms. This is due to the repetitious use of  specific tendons causing stretching and eventually  tearing of the tendon. 1 have heard of cases that required surgical repair of tendons in the fore-arms of  some employees.  Once the fish have been cleaned thoroughly, they  slide down a trough to the grading station. Quality is  determined by fish "graders" employed by the processing plant. These "graders" were "trained" at a  one day seminar attended on a voluntary basis on  March 4, 1988.  There are at present, no government standards  that these fish must meet. Our present government  feels il lakes five years to train a plumber to properly  install Ihe plumbing in your home. Yet it feels secure  thai Ihe quality of the food we eat can be determined  by people lhat attended a voluntary one day  seminar.  The processing plant 1 work in is one of the newest  and cleanest plants in our province. The people 1  work with are supportive and responsible. Most of  us are prepared to work long, hard hours to produce  a high quality product.  However, the conditions we work in are certainly  in need of improvement. Without government  regulations to improve working conditions and  guaranteed quality standards, there is very little hope  the industry will sacrifice its profits to improve a  system that has operated as it is for over a year.  If our government is willing to sacrifice safety and  quality in new industries, it is our children's futures  that are at risk. It is time our government and industries realized that people and the quality of our  lives are of far greater importance then profits.  In the long term, better working conditions and  properly trained employees lead to higher production and better quality.  We need to protect our environment and the  workers in our province. Without protection now,  long term economic growth is impossible. Our  children will be left without jobs and environmental  problems greater than the ones we face today.  mm Writers' Festival talks  to Sechelt Council  The sixth annual Festival of  the Written Arls is well underway. In a recent letter to Sechelt  Council, Festival producer Betty Keller disclosed thai writers  featured Ihis year will be  Knowlton Nash, David Suzuki,  Nicole Parlon, Dr. Morris Gibson', W.P. Kinsella, Lynne  Bowen, Christie Harris and  Barry Broadfoot. VVriters-in-  Residence instructors will be Ian  Slater, Patrick Lane, Lorna  Crozier, Sandy Duncan and  Jurgen Hesse. This represents  an increase of four speakers and  one instructor over last year's  slate. In addition, bolh the  Festival and Ihe Writers-in-  Residence program will run  longer than in the past. Four  hundred press releases have  gone out to newspapers and  periodicals across Canada and  in Washington and a Mood of  applications has already started  to come in.  Keller pointed out lo Council  that because of spin-off benefits  to the local community, the  Festival has 'in fact, become an  arm of the lourisl industry.  Nearly 49 per ccul of last year's  budget, or SI3.385.56, was  spent for goods and services on  the Sunshine Coasl.' "Festival-  goers," said Keller, "spend  dollars here for food, accommodation and souvenirs, and  stay on afler the Festival lo  spend more dollars al many  local businesses."  The budget for this year has  been increased by $18,000 for a  total amount of $35,260. This  aniounl represents grams from  the Cultural Services Branch in  Victoria, Canada Council, Sunshine Coasi Community Arts  Council and the Arls Liaison  Board, as well as income  generated by participants' fees  and food events, and  miscellaneous donations.  Lasl year's Festival showed a  deficit of $1,200. A phone call  to Keller disclosed lhal Ihis  amount represented the cost of  umbrellas thai the committee  was able to purchase al the  bargain price of $70 each, instead of $125 each. This is a  capital expense and means a  saving in the long run. Tables  for the umbrellas are being  made at the Sunshine Achievement Centre, in line wilh  Festival policy of keeping  money in the community.  Keller reminded Council that  Ihe Fesiival operates almost entirely on volunleer labour,  though this year's expanded  program has forced hiring of a  pari-lime secretary and rental of  office space.  The Fesiival Committee is  asking Council for a grant of  $1500. Council members were  unanimous in Iheir support of  the Festival and referred the re;  quest to the Finance Committee.  Gibsons  firefighters  March 10, 7:05 pm.  Firefighters responded lo a  report of a chimney fire on  Wharf Road in Langdale.  March II, 4:15 am. Gibsons  Volunleer Fire Department  responded to a mutual aid call  from Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department who were called to assist the Sechell  Volunleer Fire Department during Ihe fire al the Dock Mall.  The Halfmoon Bay Volunteer  Fire Department was also  alerted to stand by for the  Sechell Volunleer Fire Department during Ihe lire.
