K1H  April 15, 1980  Volume 34 Number 15  Sees island as possible battleground  Lockstead visits Gambier I.  by John Moore  "This could be the battleground, the test case, for the Islands  Trust legislation," NDP MLA Don Lockstead told Gambier  Island residents as he toured the island last Saturday. Lockstead  assured residents that the NDP stands completely behind the  Islands Trust's opposition to any further metal exploration on the  Island.  "Our position has always been that just because an ore body  exists, that's no reason to mine it. Particularly when there are  other considerations involved," Lockstead said. "But this has to be  stopped now. The deeper they get into it, the more money they  spend, the harder it becomes to stop. This isn't just an assault on  Gambier Island, it's an assault on the Islands Trust legislation our  government put in place."  Lockstead stressed the political aspects of the Socred  government's decision to ignore the recommendations of  consultants commissioned by the government to study the  recreational and visual impact of a possible open pit molybdenum  mine on the Island.  "Any decision made in this case is bound to be a political  decision," he said, "and there are political considerations here  which have not surfaced yet."  Bruno Gerussi, Chief Dan George and his son Bob George are shown here relaxing while waiting for their  shooting session in the latest Beachcomber episode, The Voice of the People.  Regional Planner gets it first hand  Pender residents make views known  Pender Harbour Ratepayers,  at a meeting held on Sunday,  April 14, discussed two controversial issues presently before  the Regional Board affecting  Pender Harbour.  The Pope's Landing Marine  Complex got a resounding  "No'-.and the proposal that  Daniel Point be made a public  park got an equally resounding  "Yes" vote from the 60 Pender  Harbour residents present at  the meeting of the Pender and  District Ratepayers Association.  The meeting had been called  by Regional Director Joe  Harrison who said that he  wanted a clear indication of  public feeling to take back to  the Regional Board. The meet-  ing   was   also   attended   by  Director Charles Lee and  Regional Planner Bill Lindsay.  Harrison outlined the history of the Daniel Point park  proposal, noting that it had  been made a condition for  development for land around  Lee Bay by his Area Planning  Commission. He   said   thai  Lindsay's move to place it  before the Board for a decision  at a planning meeting on  March 13 had been unexpected.  The Board voted against the  park proposal, a move he felt  violated the area's autonomy.  Lindsay said he did not have  time to consult with Harrison  or his APC prior to the March  13 meeting. The Planner also  said the Board did not have the  most recent proposal before  them on March 13 which offers  a small waterfront park at the  entrance to the subdivision and  a larger park inland in conjunction with the development's  sewage disposal area.  Irvines Landing resident  Chuck Williams described the  proposal as 'an insult to the  community'. Harbour resident  Bill White asked Lindsay if he  was aware that the majority of  local residents strongly favoured Daniel Point as the site  of the park dedication. When  Lindsay said "No", another  resident promptly proposed a  resolution calling for an 8-acre  park on Daniel Point, which  was passed unanimously.  Director Charles Lee, describing himself as the foremost  exponent of autonomy on the  Board, said he would support  the people on the issue.  The meeting spoke just as  forecefully against Pope's  Landing's proposed develop-.  ment as it had been for the  Daniel Point park. Henry  Hartley of Middlepoint said  developers of the C Level  marina-restaurant-motel complex were trying to get too  much on too small a piece of  land and would only create 'a  big mess'. Lome Smith, who  said that he represented the  land owners in the Pbpe's  Landing area described the  development as being in severe  conflict with the existing  neighbourhood and said the  people of the area were very  much opposed to it. Vera  McAllister said local taxpayers  would end up subsidizing the  development because upgrading of the road and water  systems would be required.  A resolution by Bill White  that the meeting go on record  as standing unalterably opposed to the Pope's Landing  development also received  unanimous approval.  the development will be the  subject of a Regional District  hearing to be held next Sunday,  April 20, in the Madeira Park  Community Hall at 2:00 p.m.  Cheekye  meeting  The Cheekye-Dunsmuir Alliance group will be holding a  public meeting in Madeira Park  on Saturday, April 19 at 10:30  a.m. in the Madeira Park  Elementary School Library.  the Islands Trust aim to  preserve the Island as it is, a  rural residential and recreational paradise. We're not a  bunch of bridge-burners who  want to pull up the gangplank  and keep the Island all to  ourselves. One version of the  plan allowed for a wilderness  park area right in that area  where metal exploration is now  being carried on. The permanent population of the Island  may be under a 100, but in the  summer it's closer to eight or  nine hundred and on a summer  day there has been as many as  500 boats tied up or at anchor  in Gambier Harbour alone.  The forest industry has always  been a good neighbour on this  Island. On the weekends, the  booming grounds in these long  sheltered bays provide millions of dollars worth of free  Lockstead was met at the  New Brighton Wharf by Lex  Hanson, one of many Gambier  residents who have voluntarily  donated their time on weekends for four years to prepare a  Community Plan for the Island.  "We worked with the Regional Board for two years,"  Hanson told the Coast News,  "then jurisdiction was handed  over to the Islands Trust and  we had to go back to square one  and put in another two years,  but we didn't mind because we  were under the impression we  had some input into decisions  that would effect our lives, our  families, and the life of the  Island as a whole. Detisions  like this make us wonder what  it was all for.  "Our plan for the Island,"  Hanson said, "was in line with  Qn Daniel Point  Harrison wins  regional battle  In an apparent victory for Pender Harbour Director Joe  Harrison, the Regional Board voted on Thursday, April 10, to  withhold any decision on the development in the Daniel Point  area pending further discussion with the Area Planning  Commission for Pender Harbour and area residents.  Harrison had objected publicly recently to the fact that  decisions had been made on the project which seemed to override  the expressed wishes of the people of the area and the  representations made by their Director. The vote on Thursday  came out of a Management Committee meeting held in camera  before the public meetings scheduled for that evening.  Prior to the Planning Committee meeting J.H. Williams of  Irvines Landing Road presented a petition concerning the  development in the Daniel Point area. Williams asked if the  Regional Board was aware of any significant change in the plan  since the proposal was first made. In particular he queried an  alleged condominium development.  "Condominiums contravene the aspirations of the area's  residents as set out in the Pender Harbour Official Settlement  Plan," said Williams.  Williams also demanded to know if any study had been done to  determine how much more water could be taken out of "Hotel  Lake. He pointed out that Sakinaw Lake was closer to the  development and that there was already some problem with water  supply from Hotel Lake in the summer as it was.  It seemed to be the consensus of the Regional Board that the  Irvines Landing Water Improvement District could only be  expected to provide water for the very small portion of the  development within its boundaries.  On the question of the alleged condominium, Planner Bill  Lindsay told the meeting that the developer could hope for  whatever he wants but that the decision would be made at the  discretion of the Regional Board.  Indians lose fish nets  Eddy Paul was presented with the Atom Division's most Sportsmanlike PlayerTrophy  at the minor hockey banquet last Saturday. Presenting the Trophy is Bert Halliwell, the  coach of the U.B.C. Thunderbirds.  On Tuesday afternoon, April  8, the Star Rock on fisheries  patrol mistakenly pulled the  food fish nets set by the Sechelt  Indian Band.  Clarence Joe and other  members of the Band tried to  attract the attention of the  vessel but were unable to do so.  Attempts were made through  Vancouver to inform the boat  that the nets were fishing  legally. It was Dennis Brock of  the Nanaimo Fisheries who  finally made contact and  ordered the vessel to stop. On  receiving the message, the Star  Rock left, taking with it one gill  net and the gear from another.  The Sechelt Indian Band  have a unique situation regarding food fishing. Instead ofthe  Fisheries overseeing the operation, the Band police themselves, keep a count of the fish  caught and tile the results with  Fisheries. Lawrence Chambers, the local Fisheries Officer,  met with the Band last October  to go over the guidelines. He  informed the Coast Newsthat  the officer on board the boat  was from New Westminster  and was not aware of the  situation. He added that according to the ground rules of  the agreement, the Scotsmen at  either end on the nets should  have been marked with the  band numbers. These numbers  were missing. He agreed with  Brock that there was a break  down in internal communications and a meeting was to be  scheduled within the next two  weeks to rectify the situation.  There was concern that the  band's sewer outfall had been  damaged when one of the nets  was being pulled. The net had a  deadhead in it and had drifted  over the outfall. Divers were  brought in from Vancouver to  examine the line. They found it  intact with only a small amount  of fish net hung up on it.  moorage."  Hanson pointed out that Bill  Reynolds, in charge of road  maintenance on the Island,  keeps the gravel roads in  excellent repair and, above and  beyond the call of duty,  personally maintains miles of  walking paths and trails on the  Island's residential areas.  Prominent beach access signs,  for the information of visitors,  were also much in evidence.  "We planned for increases in  services and amenities as they  became necessary," Hanson  said, "but wc just can't sec any  benefit at all in an open pit  mine on the Island. Even the  jobs they're talking about  creating won't be local jobs;  they'll be high technology jobs  for trained imported people.  This Island could be like  Stanley Park lor the Lower  Mainland area, but we're  worried now, even though  there hasn't been a proposal,  because I've talked to the  geologists and they know they  have a product. It's low grade,  but it's saleable and they  estimate 280 million tons out of  the first site alone. We're afraid  if we don't stop them now, the  whole thing is going to be just  unstoppable."  Lockstead said he plans to  meet with John Rich, Chairman of the Islands Trust, in the  near future and will attend  meetings with resident's groups  on the Island in coming  months.  Gibsons village  computerized  The Village of Gibsons is moving into the Computer Age. This  week Gibsons Village Clerk, Jack Copland, and Edie Ford of  Gibsons Municipal Office are slated to begin training courses to  operate the IBM 3741 disc-recorder soon to be in place in the  Municipal Office.  All accsunting information in the office, as many as six ledgers  including the General Ledger, will eventually be recorded by the  IBM 3741 on cassette "discs", which are mailed to the central  computer in Vancouver. The resulting printout could be back in  the Municipal Office within four days.  The anticipated advantages of the new computer system are an  immeasurable gain in terms of up-to-date, accurate management  information, in that the Municipal Office will have exact financial  data for any month within days of the month-end, and a  substantial saving in the "continuing" costs incurred by repeating  the whole accounting procedure each month by the "Bob  Cratchit" method.

A committee  appointed by the Recreation  Commission and comprising  Cliff Connor, Art Perry and  Ron Fearn is spearheading the  project in a fast-growing area  without recreation facilities at  the moment.  The park, being constructed  on Crown Land, is the brainchild of longtime area resident  Cliff Connor who has been  working along on the project  for much ofthe past three years  before  the  formation  of the  park. For Ihis reason, it is Ihe  feeling of the committee that,  whci, completed, the park  should be known as the Cliff  Connor Park,  At the present time clearing  is going on and alder for  firewood is available. Il can be  had for S20 per pickup load if  obtained at the site. Ali money-  realized will be used toward the  development of the park.

A  couple of months ago he  bought $10,000 worth of silver  at $40 an ounce Last week,  when I spoke lo him, his  $10,000 was worth about  $3,000. The interesting thing  was that he was very calm  about the whole thing and I  think I've figured out why.  A couple of months ago he  was worried about what lo do  with his savings. He thought  inflation would cat up his  money; he was distraught with  the idea that somehow, if he left  it in his savings account, he  would go to look at it one day  and it would be gone. I thought  at the time that it was somewhat ironic thai somebody  with all thai money could be so  concerned while I, as poor as a  church mouse, could be so calm  about the whole state of the  economy. Now that he's lost all  that money, he seems more  relaxed, almost relieved. His  cheeks are rosy again, his  nerves are calm, he smiles more  and he is no longer irritable. I  guess the answer is that he no  longer has so much money to  worry about and that once he  made up his mind to invest his  cash he was ready to live with  the consequences, good or bad.  The whole incident leads a  person to suspect that losing his  money was the best thing that  could have happened to my  friend. Imagine what would  have happened if the price of  silver had remained the same.  My friend would have been  worried aboul all the money he  could have been making if he  had left it in his savings  account. He would have rushed  oil every morning to bin a  newspaper just to see whai  price silver was that day. He  would have b, en devastated bv  ihe prospect ul a minoi decline  and fearful with anticipation of  a small increase 1 here can be  no doubt that he had spent, in  his imagination, every penny  and more ol ihe profits he had  hoped to gain. He had an  imaginary house, two imaginary new cars and an imaginary  vacation in Hawaii next wintei.  Ki.iwing my friend, he had  himself retired and living off his  fortune for the rest of his life.  On the other hand, what if  the price had risen dramati  cally? The old silver barou  would have had a stroke,  thinking about when he should  sell. Gripped by greed he would  have clung like a vulture to Ins  growing fortune. What if he  sold too soon and the price kepi  going up? What If he sold too  laic and Ihe price came crashing down. My Clod, a man  shouldn't have to live with  pressure like that.  No. My friend was lucky. He  was blessed by the best of good  fortune���he lost a bundle.  Some crazy Texan wilh $6  billion worth of silver panicked  the market and instead of his  hoped for millions, my friend  has about $3,000, an amount of  sufficient minitiidc as to not be  worth worrying about. He  doesn't listen to the market  reports any more, he doesn't  even read the newspaper. He  talks to his wife, loves his kids,  goes for a beer with his friends  and is generally his old congenial sell again.  I guess the lesson here is thai  if you have begun to accumulate some wealth, try not to  worry aboul it. If you do start  lo worry about il. rush right out  and invest it. Il you're lucky  you'll love your shin and be  done wilh it.  By the way, I have some old  shares in an Irish tin mine 1  wouldn't mind parting with it  the price is right.  A skeptical black cat surveys the 'perfect pups' from a  safe vantage point  Animals  / think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and  self-contained;  I stand and look at them long and long  They do not sweat and whine about their condition;  They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins;  They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God;  Not one is dissatisfied���not one is demented with the mania of  owning things;  Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands  of years ago;  Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

The Area Planning Committee, and Joe Harrison were  legally elected by the people of  this area, and they are duty  bound to carry out the wishes  of the people who elected them,  and it is the duty of the  Regional Board to carry out the  wishes of the people in this  area. If you wish to know what  the people in this area want, ask  Joe Harrison. He speaks for all  of us.  Just how in hell do the  Directors from Sechelt and  Gibsons think they have the  right to dictate to the people of  Pender Harbour?

She  accuses me of being vindictive  so I must vindicate myself.  She states that this is a  friendly community and yet  who made the first unfriendly  move? Her husband! Yet I  thought I would give him the  benefit of another chance so I  phoned Vivian and asked her if  she could speak with him on my  behalf. This she flatly refused  to do as she did not know about  or interfere in his business.  So my wife said to me if they  wish to be so unfriendly let's  give a call to our old friend Bob  Kelly who had given us good  service before Chamberlin  appeared on the scene. So being  very vindictive people we paid  Bob to pick up our garbage  (double taxation!) which he  was only too pleased to do until  recently.  Now let's look at the facts!  l)At no time have I received a  letter or official communication from the Regional Board  on the matter. How does Ms.  Chamberlin come to have  knowledge of Regional Board  business? 2) The very steep little  road that she refers to in her  letter is the southern section of"  Cartwright Road and is travelled by five resident cars daily  and is serviced by furnace oil  and propane trucks, etc. on a  scream like a scalded witch if  Joe Harrison tried to tell them  how to run Sechelt or Gibsons  affairs. Why would they support the position of the developers against the express  wishes of the people unless they  are controlled by the developers?  We regard any interference  by the Directors of Sechelt and  Gibsons as impertinent interference in Pender Harbour  affairs, and it will not be  tolerated.  Joe Harrison has our unqualified support.

Our garbage pail is  placed exactly 36 feet (by  measurement) from our house.  Bob Kelly has been picking it  up from this spot but Chamberlin refuses!  In closing I would like to  offer a suggestion that Sunshine Coast Disposal Services  'are operating in a "businesslike way" and they are out to  cut corners and the next corner  to be cut may be yours!  Vince Bracewell  Volunteers are important  by John Burnside  The efforts of an increasing  number of men and women of  all ages are finding that there is  a great deal of satisfaction in  the pursuit of a more humane  society through volunteer work  in the community, according to  Joan Cowderoy, Co-ordinator  of the Sunshine Coast Volunteer Bureau.  The purpose of the Volunteer Bureau is to refer volunteers to areas where they can be  of assistance. At the present  time, 70-100 listed volunteers  are on the books though not all  of them are active at the same  time.  Joan Cowderoy is quick to  point out that there are many  volunteers active in the community who do not go through  the Volunteer Bureau. They are  active in hospital auxiliaries,  working with seniors, in preschool centres, in day-care  centres, and in Youth Volunteer Service.  Volunteers range in age from  teenage volunteers and people  in their early twenties seeking  job experience to retired people, both men and women, who  are desirous of maintaining  active contact after retirement.  "More men are coming in  now than I would have expected," said Cowderoy. "They  seem to be finding that they  enjoy the direct contact with  people."  Cowderoy also points out  that on the Sunshine Coast  there are a lot of people who  have moved here to get away  from a structured lifestyle and  who prefer to help their  neighbours in their own way. "I  think this is great," she says,  "but with the present cutbacks  in social services volunteers,  whether referred to existing  organizations or operating  independently, do fill a definite  gap and provide a real service."  Cowderoy said that many  volunteers find real personal  satisfaction and benefit from  the life of a volunteer. "People  can use volunteering as a way  of getting through a life  transition. For example, if they  have been out ofthe work force  for a long time, volunteering  can provide the bridge they  need to get back in by offering  them the opportunity to improve long-unused work skills  and to increase their confidence."  The co-ordinator of the local  volunteer bureau said that a  two-day workshop entitled  "Life Transition through Volunteering" will be held on May  13-14. Anyone interested can  obtain more information from  Joan Cowderoy at 885-5881.  Cowderoy has been active in  various forms of volunteering  for several years. She is still a  contributor to a Toronto-based  magazine called   Connections  which concerns itself with  issues of social justice and  human rights. She has also  volunteered with groups of  young adults with epilepsy, has  been a member of a Parent Cooperative Play Group, has  done Teenage and Family  Counselling, taught at an  Alternative High School and  has as a volunteer run a Group  Home for teenage girls.  "I have found, as a volunteer,  that I have learned new skills  and learned about myself while  interacting with people. There  is a real satisfaction in contributing and being part of a  working community of peo-  pie."  April 20-26 is National  Volunteer Week in Canada for  1980 and it is hoped that many  will be attracted to lend their  assistance.  Joan Cowderoy, Co-ordinator of the Sunshine Coast  Volunteer Bureau, is getting ready for National  Volunteer Week which is next week.  Ferry  comment  Editor:  The purpose of the B.C.  Ferry fleet is to move goods  and passengers. The Sea Bus is  an excellent example of such a  service: fast, efficient movement of people within a  coordinated public transportation system.  The carrying of automobiles  and the serving of food are frills  which add to the convenience  of our overall trip and to the  pleasure of the crossing, but  these services should be dropped when they can no longer be  afforded.  Ferry traffic is a classic  example of Parkinson's Law at  work. Traffic will expand to  meet capacity until it results in  multi-sailing waits whether the  ferries run every 15 minutes or  every 4 hours. As long as  there's little inconvenience and  an insignificant cost, people  will flock to the Island on  the Coast "for something to  do". But when the trip begins to  involve a wait of several hours  or the costs become excessive, a  substantial number of people  will look elsewhere for their  leisure. In the meantime,  people who must cross because  they live here or do business  here can move easily without  their cars.  The solution is to stop  building more monuments to  the automobile in the form of  super ferries, freeways, bridges  and tunnels. Design an efficient public transportation  system for the movement of  people with a Sea Bus link  across Howe Sound, and a no  frills barge service for commercial vehicles, recreation vehicles and cars.  Much has been written in  your newspaper about the  quality of life here on the  Coast. It's difficult to describe  precisely but the ferry service is  an essential part of that life.  Without it, we become just  another fringe of the Lower  Mainland. The advocates of  connecting bridges and roads  are almost invariably developers or businessmen who would  profit from the rush of people  who would destroy the Coast as  we now enjoy it. We should  change the ferry system but we  should not abandon it.  William Hughes  (CUT  MIRRORS  Aluminum.

For the first time  since he'd arrived at Gillies  Bay, Ian found himself in a  relatively pleasant situation.  "When 1 first came to the camp  they had a really rotten cook.  The boys said she couldn't  parboil shit for a tramp. They  started complaining like crazy  and threatening to quit. Gillis  couldn't have that so he canned  her and hired an English  woman from Lasqueti Island  called Amy Parker. Amy was a  whole different story. The  quality of the grub improved  overnight. She even got Gillis  to order fresh vegetables like  lettuce that you hardly ever saw  around cookhouses in those  days. Amy was a good looking  woman in her early '40s and  there was more than one guy  around the camp had designs  on her. including Gillis. She  wasn't having any of that  however. Amy had a husband  on Lasqueti. They were separated but he came snooping  around a couple of times to see  what she was up to. Amy gave  him the bum's rush too. Said  she was through trusting men.  But she was sure good to me.  She was my boss but she had no  kids of her own and treated me  more like a son."  Most of Ian's chores centered around the cookhouse.  "Before I started serving the  grub, I never realized how fast  some of those guys ate. They'd  hit the tables at breakfast time,  wolf down incredible quantities  of mush, eggs, bacon, hotcakes,  toast and coffee and be heading  F���SK-���H  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  886-7454  "Urttlar tha Ofaaaj Caajati"  mm ��� catjj run  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  out of there before the last man  had even sat down in his place!"  There were about 30 men in the  camp and the plumbing was  primitive to say the least.  Another of Ian's tasks was to  boil hot water in a huge pot.  The men would ladle this into  basins at quitting time and  perform their perfunctory  ablutions. "Once in awhile. I'd  gel too involved in my kitchen  work and not get the water  heated in time. I wasn't very  goddamn popular when that  happened."  The middle donkey broke  down one day and the camp  was temporarily closed until  parts could be obtained and the  machinery repaired. Since the  previous flunkey had held a  first aid ticket, Gillis suggested  to Ian that he take this  opportunity to go to Vancouver and get himself one. It  was a Compensation Board  requirement and meant a little  more money.  Ian hit the bright lights.  "There was sort of a diploma-  mill downtown, run by a shifty  old quack called Ten Dollar  Dan. His main business was  turning out first aid men. He  ran them through a dozen at a  time in a few days. It was like a  production line. He taught you  the bare essentials and no  more���just enough to pass the  Comp exam and get your  certificate. I got mine and  headed back up to Gillies Bay.  The idea of having a first aid  man in camp was a pretty token  business then. Most of Ten  Dollar Dan's graduates  wouldn't have known what the  hell to do in the face of a really  serious injury. I just sort of kept  my fingers crossed and hoped  there wouldn't be any."  Fortunately for both Ian and  the crew, he was called upon to  deal with nothing more drastic  than minor cuts and contusions  as the year wore on towards  winter. One rainy night in mid-  November, the entire camp was  mystified by a series of weird,  moaning sounds coming from a  point to the north of the bay.  One logger, more curious than  the rest, braved the downpour  with a lantern to investigate.  Before long he was back,  dripping wet and excited.  "There's a goddamn whale  stranded. Must be all of 40 feet  long!"  "Well, it doesn't take much  to break the monotony in a  logging camp. The next day  was Sunday and everyone on  the claim, including Amy,  headed over to have a look.  There il lay all right, black and  glistening; big as a house. There  had been unusually high water  the previous night and it was  stranded above the normal  high tide level, flopping its tail  every so often; still making that  sad, strange noise. Maybe it  had been running from black-  fish. Whatever the reason, it  was sure as hell high and dry.  Just chanced that there was a  tug coming in that day to haul  away a boom. They waited  until the tide was in again; then  hooked the line on its tail and  tried to pull the poor, damn  thing free. But it was too solidly  aground and the tug couldn't  budge it. There was no doubt  that it was going to die there.  "There was nothing to do but  try and ease the poor animal's  suffering. Gillis had a very  heavy gauge rifle, he claimed  was an elephant gun. He shot  the whale several times in the  head from close range.- But it  seemed to have little effect.  Poor bloody creature lay there  for 10 days, reviving each time  the -tide came in; lying inert  when it receded. It was a sad  thing to watch and a relief when  it finally died. After that, the  boys started thinking practical.  They started cutting chunks of  blubber from the body and  rendering it down on the  bunkhouse  heaters.  It stank  like hell but they claimed it was  great for greasing their caulk  boots. As for the rest of the  whale, it just lay there. It was  too goddamn big to bury.  Reckon it must have smelled  pretty rank around Gillies Bay  when the weather warmed up in  the spring."  But right now the weather  was getting steadily colder. Ian  continued to perform his  various chores around the  camp and cookhouse. "Sure  didn't envy those guys out in  the woods. It was getting really  raw and miserable. I spent a lot  of time alone with Amy and  Gillis was sure we had something going on. Hell, I was too  green for anything like that and  Apiy was far too straitlaced to  start seducing kids. She did  teach me how to make moonshine, though. I didn't even  take a drink in those days but  we made a batch of white  lightning out of fermented fruit  juice. Gillis was always dropping around the cookhouse for  a nip. Said it was some of the  best he'd ever tasted. He was  rumoured to be a mean drunk  however and Amy kept most of  it hidden for fear he'd go on a  rampage."  Around the 20th of Decem-  "ber, the temperature dropped  sharply and everything froze  up. The lack of running water  effectively brought the steam-  pots to a standstill. It was damn  close to Christmas anyhow so  Gillis shut the outfit down and  laid off most of the crew. He  kept the high rigger and a  couple of other men around for  a few more days to do some-  clean up work so the cookhouse stayed open. Finally, on  December 23, Ian headed out  with the high rigger. They were  obliged to walk to Vananda as  Gillis wanted to keep the horse  and buggy at the camp. It was a  long, cold walk and Charlie-  Brinks, the high rigger, was  getting tired. "I'd brought a  bottle of the moonshine as a  souvenir and I offered him a  shot. Well, by God, if he didn't  wheedle me out of the whole  damn bottle. I'll tell you,  Charlie wasn't walking any too  ao  ON THE SUNSHINE COAST?  1.We do not believe that quality  education is dependent on the  compulsory transportation of  school children.  2.

At the Twilight  Tuesday, April 8 is your last chance to see the wonderful Italian  farce, Bread and Chocolate. Don't miss it.  The week's programme al  the Twilight Theatre will  present the latest of the 'disaster epics' and a clever mixture  of suspense and science fiction.  The disaster film is When Time  Ran Out and the science fiction  offering is Time After Time.  When Time Ran Out is a terse  drama produced by Irwin Allen  who has been termed "the  master of disaster". It stars Paul  Newman as an adventuresome  oil driller and Jacqueline Bisset  as a girl involved in a torrid  romance who is torn between  two strong, willful men. Academy Award winner William  Holden stars as the other man,  an ultra-rich hotel tycoon.  Jacqueline Bisset and Paul  Newman are cast as a searching  couple trying secretly to come  to terms with each other in an  incredible adventure that begins at the edge of destruction.  William Holden is the power-  wielding head of a multi-  million dollar empire who is  forced to choose between life  and death for himself and for  those around him.  The film is enhanced by  outstanding location cinematography on Hawaii's fabulous  Kona Coast, and it can be seen  at the Twilight Theatre from  Wednesday until Saturday,  April 16 to April 19.  In the second of the week's  movies, writer and radical  theorist H.G. Wells, as portrayed by Malcolm McDowell  is unveiling his latest invention  to a gathering of his friends in  1893. The invention is a  machine for time travel.  During the evening the  police arrive to arrest one ofthe  guests who is accused of being  the notorious Jack the Ripper.  The accused guest disappears  and only the horrified Wells  realizes that he has used the  time machine to escape into the  future.  Time After Time is a clever  concoction with some dazzling  performances. There is an  exciting grand finale and  enough handsome moments to  win over almost anyone. It will  be shown locally Sunday  through Tuesday, April 20-22.  surefooted by the time we  reached Vananda just before  dark!"  The Cassiar was due at 10:30  that evening but the weather  was bad. It was midnight and  snowing heavily before the  Union boat finally pulled into  the dock. "That boat was sure  crowded. Seemed like half the  people on the Coast were  heading for town at the same  time���a lot of women and kids.  There, was hardly room to  stand, let alone sit. To make  matters worse, the sea was  rougher than hell. I somehow  got below decks to where the  baggage was stored and  stretched out on a pile of  logger's blanket rolls. I didn't  stay there long. The things were  crawling with bedbugs. I got  through the night somehow.  "Next morning, the steward  announced   breakfast.   After  about an hour, I managed to  corner a seat in the dining  room. 1 ordered toast and a  couple of boiled eggs. Well, I  cracked the first one and it was  higher than a kite. I figured the  second must be good but when  I knocked the top off that one, 1  swear a puff of blue smoke  came out. I just ate the toast  and got the hell out of there.  The Union Steamship Company didn't give much of a  damn for the passengers in  those days, particularly loggers. They we're strictly interested in hauling freight."  The Cassiar reached Vancouver safely around noon and  Ian disembarked with considerable relief. "Well, that was the  end of my brief logging career. 1  never did go back to Gillies  Bay.

They occur often and  fortuitously enough that I'm  prepared to believe it. A few  months ago, for instance, I read  and reviewed Jean Howarth's  Treasure Island. In the course  of observing the effects of  isolation and the surrounding  sea on human personalities and  events, chiefly the island's  tendency to exaggerate eccentricities and lend a curiously  unreal aura of ritual to the most  mundane occurrences, it  crossed my mind that here was  a fine subject for a book.  I started making notes,  thinking of all the novels and  plays, from Homer's Odyssey  and the Sinbad stories from  Burton's Arabian Nights, to  Defoe's Robinson Crusoe and  Shakespeares The Tempest. The  more I thought about it, from  the ancient island empire of  Minoan Crete to the modern  British Empire, from the  Tahitian isles of Mutiny on the  Bounty to The Mysterious  Island of Jules Verne, the more  interesting and inexhaustible  the subject appeared.  Then I found the book. I was  rummaging around the Vancouver bookstores, taking  advantage of the after-Christmas stock-clearing sales, (always a worthwhile buying trip;  chain-bookstores, like department stores, are getting into the  January sales act), when I  stumbled on a very reasonably  priced copy of Islands by John  Fowles and Fay Godwin (Jonathan Cape Ltd. London).  John Fowles is better known  to the reading public as the  author of best-selling novels  The Collector, The Magus,  (recently re-issued in a Revised  Edition I haven't had time to  compare with the original), The  French Lieutenant's Woman,  The Ebony Tower and Daniel  Martin. He has also written a  fascinating book of epigrammatic philosophical observations entitled The Aristos and  now Islands. Fowles is, I  suspect, one of the very few  authors writing books that sell  very well today who may  conceivably still be read in 25,  50 or 100 years.  Islands, created in concert  with photographer Fay Godwin, focuses on the Scilly Isles;  "an eternal stone armada of  over 100 ships, aloofly anchored off England; mute,  enticing, forever just out of  reach." Lying off the southwest  tip of Cornwall, appropriately  just beyond Land's End, the  Scillies have, from the mythological mists of time, been  regarded as somehow "beyond"; otherworldly and unreal.  To the ancient Celts, the  Scillies were the Isles of the  Blest, the Land of the Shades,  the Islands of the Dead. Part  Paradise, part necropolis, the  "Blessed Islands", lying in the  path of westerly setting sun,  figured powerfully in Celtic  mythology. The often mist-  shrouded Scillies are frequently  equated with the mythical  Atlantean kingdom of Lyon-  esse, referred to in Tennyson's  Idylls of the King, as the "sunset  isles" where remnants of forgotten races dwell, and the site  of "the last great battle in the  West" where friend strikes  down friend in the mist and  Arthur receives his mortal  wound.  The strongest Celtic identification of the Scillies is with  Glasinnis, "The Glass Island",  the Isle of Avalon to which  King Arthur is borne by  mythical barge at his death.  The Celts believed the spirits of  the dead could not cross water,  similar to the Greek River Styx,  the boundary between the land  ofthe living and the Land of the  For all your Carpels  ftrgosheen  Carp*1  Cleans  No  Soap  B"  Id-uP'  ***'  .****  ������  iKis  ��*��  ~r\\    T.Sinclair  *\jfL*rJ*-      885-9327  Dead. This belief inspired them  to bury a great many of their  dead on islands, and so densely  in places that one suspects that  the Scillies must have been the  ultimate Forest Lawn of mega-  lithic Britain, though interment  there would not have been the  ambition of only the dying...the  living may well have cherished  that 30-mile cordon sanitaire  between themselves and their  ancestors."  Fowles uses his psychological and historical tour of the  Scillies, accompanied by Fay  Godwin's moody atmospheric  black and white photographs,  as a springboard into the  greater sea of island lore in  general. He exhaustively and  entertainingly analyses the  Odyssey, which is much more  about islands than it is about  the sea and covers the whole  gamut of island characteristics,  their mysterious lure, often  fatal, to the sailor, the insular  hostility of islanders when  confronted with strangers, the  timeless, unreal "lotus-eating"  quality of island life. Islands, he  says, "is much more about the  Scillies of a novelist's mind;  and beyond them, about the  mysteries, symbolic and real, of  all similarly situated small  islands; about their silences,  their otherness, their magi and  their mazes, their eternal  waiting for a foot to land."  The central thesis of Fowles  island excursions can be applied to the life of any island  and to any work of literature  whose action is set on an island;  that islands are "secret places,  where the unconscious grows  conscious, where possibilities  mushroom, where imagination  never rests" and they are so  because, contrary to the adage  that "no man is an island",  every man and woman, every  human soul, is an island,  isolated from every other,  where visitors, like shipwrecked sailors, wash up from  time to time and are taken back  to sea with the tide.  Fowles obsession with islands is a dominant feature of  his own novels, most notably  that weird magical novel The  Magus, and of every novelist he  admires, from the most ancient  novel, the Odyssey, to the first  modern novel, Robinson Crusoe.  Islands, as such, are a  precious resource. Fowles  mentions the Zen koan in  which the acolyte asks the  master which is the most  precious flower in the garden.  "The mirror," the Master  replies, referring to the way the  garden traditionally "mirrors"  the island dotted drowned  landscape of Japan.  "But Master, a mirror has no  leaves, no flower, no fruit."  The resounding slap across  the head that is the traditional  novice's reward for bullhead  stupidity is something one  might well consider as the  provincial government blithely  permits continued metal exploration, with a view to an  open pit moly mine on Gambier Island.

Carefree gardening*  by Sandy Loam  Some little gardening tips  found in obscure places can be  truly amazing. I had two Lilacs  which refused to bloom, not  one single bud on either for  three years. I fed them, stared  at them, pruned them and  scratched my head. Then I read  that root pruning would start  them again. Root pruning is  simply digging straight down  with a square edged shovel in a  circle around the plant thus  clipping the extended roots. I  went one better and moved  both Lilacs to a new location.  This 20 minute operation  brought them closer to the  house and certainly pruned the  roots as I think I must have left  half of them behind. This year  "Voila"! They are covered with  nice plump buds. 1 mean  covered! What a pleasant  surprise.  Mildred Smith of Roberts  Creek has sent in one tip and  one request. Her tip is: nip off  the top of your tomato plants  and stick the tops in the ground  where they will happily root to  give you more plants and twice  the yield. I certainly wouldn't  have thought of that. The  nipping fattens the plant and  keeps it from becoming leggy  and since tomato plants are  darned expensive you will get  twice as many for your money.  Good Idea.  Mildred's request: an interesting recipe for cooking  Jerusalem Artichoke roots.  Jerusalem Artichokes (Canadian potatoes) are not the  exclusive globe we have been  discussing. They are a tall plant  with edible roots reputed to be  good for Arthritis but Mildred  says they have a revolting taste.  Others disagree so if anyone  has a good recipe would he or  she be kind enough to mail it to  . the Coast News office in  Gibsons.

If one has a wood stove or a  slow cooker, one can throw one of these creations  in after breakfast and put one's feet up until it's time  to eat it for supper. No way can one develop this  subtlety of flavour with a whizz in a microwave.  One can, of course, throw all kinds of mixtures  into a stew, but there are some tried and true  recipes in which the flavours of the vegetables and  herbs blend superbly. One of my favourites is a  traditional Frenchstcw called a "daube". The word,  according to my impeccable source, Jane Grifson of  the Sunday Observer, comes from the Italian word  "addobbo" meaning a garnish in culinary terms.  Boeuf en Daube  1. Take 3 lbs. round steak and 3 cloves of garlic.  Cut the garlic cloves in half and make 6 little  incisions in the meat and pop the cloves therein.  In a bowl place the following ingredients:  3 slices of lemon  1 bay leaf  a pinch of thyme  1 teaspoon finely chopped chives  1 teaspoon finely chopped tarragon  1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley  1/4 cup dry white wine  3 teaspoons olive oil  salt and pepper  Marinade the beef in this for 12 hours. If you  suffer from insomnia, you can turn it over now  and again.  Cut the rind off about 1/4 Ib. fat salt pork.

Add the following ingredients:  4 finely choppecfgreen onions  4 chopped tomatoes  2 cloves chopped garlic  1 finely chopped onion  1 cup chopped onions  4 sprigs parsley  Add to all this the strained juices from the  marinade and about a cup of beef stock.  5. Cover the casserole with a tight fitting lid and  cook at 250 degrees for about five hours. It  should be garnished with lemon slices and fresh  sprigs of parsley and should feed six people.

Each of us has a reason, special to ourselves, as to why we  shop in one store or another. We who operate the business  must try to meet these human needs and whims in a thousand  different ways. With some it's the meat. They think our meat  is the reason they shop at Ken's. Others can only speak of the  produce,���claiming we're the best on the Peninsula. Others,  will say it's because of our varied and wide selections,  claiming they can get things here they can't seem to get  elsewhere.  And then, another big reason is because of the friendly and  considerable service they get from our staff. I am told time  and time again how much people appreciate the spoken  greeting and friendly assistance that our staff provides.  Recently, I did an article with photos on the personnel of  our Meat Department. I spoke then of the merits of that  important Department. The other day, Martin Mahoney, who  is Graham's young assistant, stopped me and asked, "When  are you going to do a feature on the Produce Department, Mr.  Edney?" I could sense the pride that this young man has in his  job and his loyalty to that Department. So, I told him, his turn  would soon come.  Here then, you see Martin Mahoney at work doing what he  likes best. He is another example of many fine young people  who have learned on-the-job. What a person lacks in  experience is more than made up by a good attitude. Skills  soon come from doing, especially when the student is given  ample reason why things are done in a certain way. Any of us  can get more out of the job when we become part of the  reason for success.  And, so, I give credit to our staff and the likes of Martin  Mahony who take pride in their job.

Coast News, April 15, 1980  A teacher remembered  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  "On my return to enter  Grade 6 imagine my feelings on  finding Miss Bruce sitting  smiling at the desk in the room  to which our class was directed.  "Soon the fog deepened for  me. I met grammar. And  grammar was more incomprehensible to me than arithmetic.  With simple, lovely things like  words how can you fit them  into pickle jars of laws? It  became a question of whether I  should spend my time, kept in  each day, on arithmetic or  grammar. Hut Miss Bruce still  brought her chair down to the  back of the class, and still Big  Stabley and the rest of us  showed off our non-academic  talents, and when summer  came again, Miss Bruce lent  me, at our farewell party in the  classroom. Rudyard Kipling's  Just So Stories, recently published.  '"You will learn more grammar from this,' she said, 'than  from anything 1 can teach you.'  Yes, we had her for the third  year, in which year she lent me  Kipling's Kim and took me to  show me how to join the public  library which was away down  town. And all our gang, clever  and backward stayed together  until we were at last promoted  into Grade 8.  "Sam Richardson was our  new teacher. 'I understand,  Gregory,' he said to me in front  of all, 'you have the gift ofthe  gab. I'm afraid that will not  help you with me. I see by your  report you are very poor in  arithmetic and grammar. So we  will spend the coming year on  those two subjects principally.  Understand?'  "1 understood. That was a  bare, toilsome, forgotten year  out of my life. All I remember  of it were the schemes I devised  for dropping into Miss Bruce's  classroom at recess and after  hours. I even braved the  dangers inherent in teacher's  pet by walking with her after  ^school down to the streetcar.  We talked of India and the wide  ."Wld.  "I dream,' she said, 'of  saving money enough to visit  India some day.'  "Well, we passed our entrance under the strong hand of  Sam Richardson and I entered  the fabled world of high school,  where there was Latin and  Greek, both with grammars a  backward child could understand, not a hodge-podge  Chinese puzzle like English  grammar. And a debating  society and a literary society,  and a school LIBRARY, quiet  and stately, where you could  visit until the caretaker threw  you out. When I got my matriculation, I wrote my first love  letter to Miss Bruce.  "It was a letter in which I told  her I now knew what she had  been teaching us in those three  years now long behind me. She  was teaching us courage. She  was telling us we were good for  SOMETHING. Even the gift of  the gab. I never posted that  letter. It sounded mushy to me.  My second love letter 1 never  posted to her was written when  I was thrown out of university  for failing my first year twice.  In that letter, I told her I knew  where I was going now, and  that was to be a newspaper  reporter, and I thanked her for  the three years in which she had  excited me lo look, look, look  at the beautiful, strange world.  I didn't post it, because it  sounded a little high-falutin'  for a cub reporter.  "My last unposted letter to  Miss Bruce was written in a  dugout north of Arras, France.  In that war, we always carried  ;in unposted letter to our  mother and father, and one to  our wife or sweetheart. My  third letter was lo Miss Bruce,  thanking her for telling me  something I thought of as I led  my platoon in the winter night  up the line for a tour of duty. I  imagined I saw the tall, serene,  maroon figure of Miss Bruce.  'Gregory, don't be afraid,' I  thought she said. 'There is more  to life than death.'  "Well, I wasn't killed. And  when   the   ship  came   into  Halifax harbour I stood in the  stern and tore up the three  farewell letters and threw them  into the wind.  "How do you explain that  never in all these years did I  walk the few blocks to the old  school to sec Miss Bruce? You  explain it. I cannot.  "In the early I930's got on  the Bloor streetcar. There, ten  feet from mc sal Miss Bruce.  She was much older than I held  her in memory, But she was as  slraight as ever, Il was. as you  can believe tile moment of truth  for me. I had only to go to  Christie Slreet. a lew blocks; I  had little time.  "I got up and walked from  strap lo strap until I slood  before her. I reached down and  took one of her black-gloved  hands.  '"Miss Bruce?' 1 said. She  raised her eyes, dark and  shimmering still, behind the  steel-rimmed spectacles. 'Yes?'  'I'm Gregory,' I said. 'Yes?'  'Gregory Clark. You had me in  Grades 5, 6 and 7, remember?'  "Miss Bruce studied me with  an intense expression.  '"You lenl me Kim,' I said,  'and Just So Stories.' 'Yes?' she  said. 'You remember,' I said,  'about not being afraid? Not  being afraid of arithmetic? Or  grammar?' Miss Bruce was  trying to remember. 'There  were so many,' she said. I let go  her hand. 'Did you ever go to  India?' I asked. 'India?' she  replied. 'Oh, you must be  mistaken.' She looked away,  puzzling. She looked up at mc.  trying to recollect.  ��*Christie Street was coming  up. I rang the bell cord. 1  reached down and took her  hand again. I got off the car and  had a little trouble seeing the  curb.  "Whatever you do, if you  have a teacher who put you on  the path, who showed you the  way. who taughl you not to be  afraid, go find her. or him, go  find them before it is too late.

Haggerty reads  at Arts Centre  On Friday, April 18, 8:00  p.m. at the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre, in the third evening of  The Poetry and Prose Series,  Joan Haggerty, part-time resident of Roberts Creek, will  read her writing. This event is  co-sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council, and the  Canada Council.  Joan Haggerty was born  April 26, 1940 in Vancouver.  She received her high school  education there and in 1962  graduated from U.B.C. with a  B.A. in English and Theatre.  During the next year, while  working on her Master's degree, she taught English at  U.B.C. She then moved to  London, England, where she  became a teacher of creative  drama in schools. In 1965, she  published Please Miss, Can I  Play God? (Methuen. London,  England, and Bobbs-Merrill  Publishers, NYC, NY.) which  dealt with the experiences of  slum children in England. In  1972 she published Daughters  of the Moon (Bobbs-Merrill,  NYC, NY.), a novel told from  the point of view of a woman in  labour. Daughters of the Moon  ...concerns two young women,  Sarah and Anna, who meet on  the island of I'ormentera in the  Balearic's. Sarah has escaped  from a living husband in  London, Anna from a dead  one���a suicide in Paris. They  discover they are both pregnant; they become friends and  then lovers, and then separate  to give birth. The book has,  predictably, nine sections, its  time-pulse is nine months, and  the moons of myth shine  mysteriously over all. enhancing yet never totally illuminating the mythic significance of  the characters���but that is the  nature of moonlight. (Phyllis  Webb, CBC Critics on Air.  January 24. 1972.).  Joan is currently finishing  two novels. A story others will  appear in the July MeCalls.  CBC's Anthology is currently  celebrating its 25th Anniversary and to commemorate the  occasion they decided to commission four stories to the  writers they were most excited  about 'in the country today.  Joan was chosen, and the story,  Jake, will soon be heard on  CBC's Anthology Special.  Joan Haggerty's stories and  articles have appeared in  Homes and Gardens (London,  England), MS magazine  (NYC), Room of One's Own  (Vancouver, B.C.), Quill &  Quire (Toronto, Ont.), the B.C.  Monthly, Capilano Review  (Vancouver, B.C.), and the  Georgia Straight (Vancouver,  B.C.). For the past three years  Joan has been teaching in the  Creative Writing Department  at U.B.C.  All are welcome Friday  evening, and the admission is  free.  Finance  move  At a recent meeting of the  Municipal Finance Authority  of B.C. an initiative from the  Sunshine Coast Regional District was passed which seeks to  sec municipal financing obtained through the provincial  government surpluses at a  preferred rate of interest.  The motion, proposed by  Director Charles Lee and  seconded my Mayor Derek  Humphries of West Vancouver, pointed out the surplus  monies in the provincial coffers  are generated by the same  sources which seek financing,  currently amounting to $63.5  million.  It was pointed out by Lee  that heretofore municipalities  have been required to borrow  abroad and the present punitive interest rates make this a  most undesirable method of  raising money in light of  provincial surpluses.  Harbour Dance success  The First Annual Spring  Dance ofthe Gibsons Harbour  Business Association was a  great success last Saturday  night.  Held in the hall above Ken's  Lucky Dollar and with music  supplied by old favourites the  Penn Kings, the dance was, as  one happy participant acknowledged, 'just like a glorified  house party'.  Future dances are being  considered in the light of the  success of this initial venture.

Sat.  9:30 ��� 6:00  Friday 9:30 - 9:00  Cowrie St.  Next to Getaway Holidays  885-3611  10% Off to  Senior Citizens  with Pharmacare Card  jJust Arrived For Spring  Picnic  Baskets  With the coming of spring  and more people, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre is changing  to a two week exhibition  schedule from three. This is for  two reasons, the first being that  with the increased volume of  visitors arriving with the good  weather, the artists will certainly receive as much exposure as  those with three week shows  during the winter. Secondly, we  have had an impressively large  number of artists requesting  shows and in order to accommodate them and put on  the shows we plan ourselves, a  two week schedule seems to  make sense. As with most  things at the Arts Centre  though, we are sure to learn  something from the experience.  Of course this will also give the  resident population reason to  visit the gallery with greater  frequency.  Our new scheduling of two  week exhibits begins on April  22 with a show of woven  blankets by Joan Marshall and  an educational exhibit on silk  screening.  Joan Marshall was born and  brought up in Montreal and  attended University in New  Brunswick receiving a Bachelor  of Fine Arts in I968. Two years  later she did graduate work in  printmaking at Bowling Green  State University in Ohio.  In 1972 Joan moved to the  Sunshine Coast where she has  since maintained a residence  and thus received her introduction to weaving. Eight years  later, Joan has become highly  respected in her art which is  done on a Salish loom, a  technique that caught her  imagination when viewing a  demonstration by Salish weavers.  Previous exhibitions of  Joan's work have taken place  at the Towards Costume show  at the Vancouver Art Gallery,  a group show of Sunshine  Coast artists al the Western  Front in Vancouver, last fall's  Art of Craft at the Arts Centre,  and a one-person show at the  University of Calgary.  Her work is included in  several collections including  the University of Calgary, and  the collections of artists Michael Norris and Roy Kiyooka.  The other aspect of the Arts  Centre show is called "Evolution of the Bill Reid Beaver  Print". Bill Reid is one of the  best known of Haida artists,  and the exhibit illustrates and  explains the artistic and technical steps involved in making a  silkscreen print using his  Beaver print as example. This  will give those who are curious  about this printing process a  good opportunity for better  understanding of this widely  used form of artistic expression. A show such as this will  also help one to appreciate  other examples of art carried  out in this medium. This  particular presentation is on  loan from the U.B.C. Museum  of Anthropology, an institution we are establishing a  rapport with and will undoubtedly get future exhibits from.  These exhibits will continue to  May 4. Opening night is on  Monday, April 21, 8:00-10:00  p.m. and all are welcome. .  ��  FINE CABINETS  , 886-9411 Gibsons  >��� >c* # * ���< V * * *  NDP  l::!:********.**  SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  [SOUTH COAST FORD CAR U TRUCK RENTALS 885-3181 Punks in Pender  Just about every Friday  night, Pender Harbour residents are having problems with  people who seem to have  nothing better to do than to  strew beer bottles around,  destroy whatever they can and  generally to behave like some  sort of mentally deficient lower  species.  Last Friday, April 11, the  shutters of the Kon Tiki food  take-out stand were torn off,  and beer bottles were strewn  around the Madeira Park  Shopping Centre. Beer bottles  were also scattered around the  Fire Hall and the Madeira Park  Post Office. As in the past, the  Royal Canadian Mounted  Police were called, but there  seems to be little that they can  do. As soon as they leave for  Sechell, this sub-human ele-  nient emerges to engage in their  "entertainment". A growing  number of Pender Harbour  residents feel that a locally  based detachement of the  RCMP is needed.  "Older people are living in  terror of these punks," a long  time resident told the Coast  News. Another reported seeing  a group of young people, all of  them totally drunk, behind the  IGA store. "Not one of them  was over 16," the informant  told the Coast News.  Another resident felt that  Area  A  Representative  Joe  Harrison  should  be  more i  concerned over this ongoing  problem and less concerned  with "politicking".

All this is a preamble  to m> contention that most ol  us are at best parrots. We are a  combined product of what we  have heard, read or possibly  seen and lew of us ever manage  in a lifetime to come up with  something truly original and  unique���if we do we are hailed  as a genius and how many of us  can qualify for that position'.'  As in our behaviour once again  we. in most cases, imitate  others and in many respects go  through life in the same manner  as do the trained seals (which  are really sea lions) in a circus,  balancing balls on our noses  and in general playing to an  audience for, in their case the  reward of a fish and for us the  plaudits of our contemporaries.  So it was for me. I hadn't the  slightest idea of how to go  about hitch hiking and even  less did I have any knowledge  of riding a freight, so the  Irishman was my mentor. It is  because of him that getting  from Hamilton to Toronto  presented no problem. He  insisted that we split up as it  was highly unlikely any passing  motorist would pick up two  young men carrying packsacks.  Our chances of a lift would be  greater going alone. Accordin-  ly, he started off and kept  walking towards Toronto while  1 stayed behind, thus getting  the first chance naturally when  someone came along.  The someone wasn't long in  coming as 1 hadn't been  standing there for more than a  few minutes when a large black  car, the lone occupant being the  driver, drew up and a window  was lowered. On my enquiring  if he was going into the city and  the answer being in the affirmative, I was invited to climb in  which I promptly did. Let me,  at this stage, state that I know  absolutely nothing about cars  nor ever have. Whether this,  being the year 1926, was a  station wagon or not I really  don't know, nor have I the  foggiest notion as to its make,  but the back seats were crammed with boxes of all shapes  and sizes.  However, what struck me as  soon as I opened the door on  my side was the beautiful smell  of perfume that emanated from  the driver, whether it was  Ouelques Fleurs, Lily of the  Valley or Chanel No. 5,1 had or  have no idea, but it was  distinctly feminine and I was  somewhat taken aback as the  whole interior of the car was  redolent with a fragrance  reminiscent I imagine, although I have never been in  one, of a Turkish harem.  When 1 took a covert glance  at the man (?) behind the wheel  I was even more astounded.  Not only was he aboul my  height of 5'6", but he was  disgustingly obese. He must  have weighted all of 250 lbs.  and he had not only given  himself a liberal dusting of face  powder but one could detect  the lipstick on his mouth. My  first impulse was lo demand  that he stop and let me get to  hell out of there hut then, out of  curiosity. I decided 1 would  stay as I desperately needed the  ride into Toronto and, although 1 certainly was in the  company of a most peculiar  person, physically 1 knew that I  was more than his match.  Rummaging in the glove compartment he produced his card  which identified him as Per-  cival Ronald Graver and his  occupation as biscuit salesman.  Apparently he handled several  lines including Weston's, Mc-  Vitie's and Peek Frean's which  I must confess surprised me as,  seeing he was in sales 1 quite  expected him from his appearance and manner, to be peddling women's lingerie, cosmetics or corsets or maybe all  three.  1 thought I was a good  conversationalist but boy he  beat mc by a mile! He talked  incessantly and I must admit  that most of what he said and  the advice he gave mc made  sense. For instance, he told mc  that should I ever consider  entering the selling field to  choose something of a perishable nature or some product  that was not only in demand  but that the public could not do  without, such as food. As he  pointed out, should one sell a  person say a fridge, a stove or  an automobile then he could  strike his or her name off the  list for the next x number of  years, whereas if one sold  clothing, foodstuffs or some  article, say soap, then in a very  short time they were either  worn out, used up or consumed  and, provided the product was  good, shortly the person would  be back in the market for more  of the same.  All this was very interesting  and informative but I kept a  wary eye on him just the same  wondering what was coming  next and prepared for the  worst. However, apart from a  good deal of rolling of eyeballs  and fluttering of eyelids, he  made no further advances  apart from letting his hand  stray once in a while from the  wheel and giving me a reassuring pat on the knee and  assuring me that I was a very  handsome young boy and that  he could easily become very  fond of me. Allowing for the  fact that "beauty is in the eye of  the beholder" this was a  damned prevarication as, to be  honest, I was quite homely and  always have been.  We made one stop on the  way and that was at a gas  station.   Alter   ordering   the  attendant, a goodlooking  young chap around my age, to  "fill 'er up" Percy departed for  the restrooms and, although I  quite expected him to head for  the ladies' room, he dived into  the men's. He was in there for  quite some time and when he  emerged, lo and behold I  hardly recognized him! Whereas before he had an almost  black shock of hair, now he was  a gorgeous red head and his  face looked a lot younger due  to another dusting of powder, a  skillful application of rouge  and even his mouth had  changed somehow; it was now  a perfect crimson rosebud and  reminded mc of Clara Bow's.  When he went to pay the gas  jockey I thought he was going  to take him into his arms and  kiss him and I think the young  guy thought the same, as he  gave mc a startled look and  backed away in one hell of a  hurry.  When we entered the city I  noticed we were on Queen  Street and not too far from  where I had stayed before, a  cheap rooming house where  one could get a room at that  time for around $2 per week.  This was the address I had  given Jim and where we had  arranged to meet. I must say  Percy seemed quite upset that I  was leaving him so abruptly  and insisted I meet him later at  the Westmoreland Hotel on  Jervis Street, to which I agreed  although I had no intention of  doing so. He presented me with  a 4 lbs. box of Peek Frean's  assorted biscuits and, after a bit  more eyelid fluttering, he took  off.  Later I did meet Jim and  regaled him with the story of  my adventures along the road.  He told me that the Westmoreland Hotel was notorious as'  being a hang-out for "queers"  of both sexes and, although I  didn't quite catch on at the  time, he added that either my  departed friend Percy was  "nuttier than a fruit cake or  fruitier than a nutcake". I could  take my choice!  Hypnotist coming  ROMANE, whose pubicity  describes him as the King of  Hypnotists, has total audience  participation through the use  of cordless microphones and  provides mystifying and amusing entertainment enjoyed by  all ages.  In Boston, ROMANE'S  hypnosis show was acclaimed  as "truly great". In Winnipeg,  the Tribune raved that "ROMANE handled his show at the  Concert Hall with showmanship aplomb. The power he  possesses is quite terrifying."  At this unusual performance, you may sec hypnotized  volunteers beleve that they are  accomplished violinists, passengers on a journey into outer  space and even beauty contestants. ROMANE'S show is  acclaimed as one ofthe funniest  shows in the world.  ROMANE has been known  to hypnotize people over the  telephone and even by sending  letters  with  "hypnotic  mess  ages". ROMANE claims that  he can hypnotize anyone and  that while other hypnotists ask  for silence when hypnotizing,  ROMANE is able to hypnotize  outside with the roar ofafair or  exhibition midway next to his  stage.  He even reveals to the  audience the secrets of self-  hypnosis for greater control of  their own minds. ROMANE  says than most people do not  utilize their minds to full  capacity, and like an iceberg,  seven-eighths remains below  the surface, while only one-  eighth is used.  ROMANE offers $50,000  cash to be donated to charity if  any person proves he uses  confederates or plants in any of  his    concerts.  This performer, who is  presently in the midst of a 50-  show tour, will be appearing at  7:30 p.m. at the Elphinstone  Secondary School in Gibsons  on Thursday, April 24.

I seem to see the sunshine play  Around the waters of the bay.  Hello."  This verse was the contribution of Trustee Al Lloyd  taking part in an impromptu  poetry writing exercise on the  theme of "I seem....but really"  with students of Mr. Matsu-  zuki's class at the School  Board's monthly education  meeting. The few words, jotted  down in the couple of minutes  allowed expresses the natural  friendliness and joie-de-vivreof  an evening in which the Trustees and the Superindendent  took an active part in the  evening's performances.  Principal Reid, staff and  students of Gibsons Elementary School had prepared a  Roman Holiday for the entertainment of their guests, including wildly exciting chariot  races and gladiator fights���but  more of this later.  The evening started on a  quieter note with Mrs. Bujan's  Kindergarten's action songs  ���ind dances and a demonstra  tion of everyday activities from  painting and modelling to  building with blocks. Trustees  lent a helping hand with  puzzles and building projects.  Kindergarten children with  their enthusiasm and delight in  everything they do are always  an inspiration, but this group  includes children with physical  disabilities whose courage and  determination to overcome  their handicaps outshone the  spotlight focused on their  group.  It must be with some misgivings that a parent agrees to  expose their child to the public  gaze���to become the recipients  of well-meant pity, but pity was  not the emotion these children  aroused. These children, their  parents, teacher and classmates  gained our profound respect  and admiration. Unless you  had been told which children  were sight and hearing impaired, or were extremely  observant to notice the small  details of an unobtrusive  helpful hand, you would have  been hard put to recognize  them. The class was so naturally accepting of each other,  help given almost causally with  no hint of fussing or over-  reaction. Here was an example  to us all of how differences and  diversity can be integrated into  our society and of just how  valuable these children with  special needs are to us.  Following Mr. Matsuzaki's  poetry class in which Trustees  Lloyd and Clayton participated, teachers with different  styles and approaches to dancing took the spotlight.

Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  Two of the most commer  cially marketable products in.  today's market seem to be God,  and the human dilemma.  Never before in history have  so many made so much money  in the name of God, as the  electronic ministry has become  a multi-billion dollar industry,  with evangelists and staffs  travelling about the globe in  inordinate luxury, and collecting money for every manner of  causes, from just spreading the  gospel to feeding the poor. Ihe  publishing industry has not  been far behind, as every  embryonic author whu can  spell the name God (whether as  noun,, compound noun or  adjective) finds an instant  audience.  The movie industry has  stepped in on some of the  profit, also, raking up some  pathetically thin stories, based  on a smattering of familiarity  with some Bible story and a  wealth of raw speculation.  Those people who are engaged in the business of making  money from the public by  appeals for donations are  flagrantly arrogant about their  own living style, pointing out  that Gud never wanted us to  starve, and misquoting liberally to show that God intended them to flourish personally with the world's goods. By  inference they are saying that  those people who are giving  liberally of their own modest  material goods are in fact a  bunch of patsies, and yet the  money continues to flow in,  and the vocal few continue to  Ilourish���in the name of God  On the other side of the coin,  there are the men and women  of the near-scientific community who have discovered the  great wealth to be made in  exploring and exploiting people's inadequacies, leading  them painfully and tortuously  toward the life which they, the  experts, have stamped officially  as "the better life".  ..These people, all of whom  haV an easily-won Ph.D. as  their standard uniform, are  often earnest and excessively  vocal, but a modestly close  scrutiny reveals many of them  to be excessively shallow in  their own estimation of what  the good life should entail.  They spout statistics by the  ream, seldom attributing these  statistics to any traceable  source, and they come up with  some pretty far out ways to  point their clients toward that  "good life", such as the recent  contribution from the never-  never land of California���the  "primal scream".  There is very little doubt that  many millions of people in the  world are in need of some kind  of help if they are to realize any  more of their human potential  than the one-tenth of one  percent, which it is estimated  the bulk of the world's people  ever develop to a viable ability.  There is also very little doubt  that many of these people are  very likely better off to have  some kind of help.'any kind of  help--no mattei how shallow  and expensive it may be���  rather than no help at all.  But it seems a great pity they  could not turn to the source of  help which is free and universally available���the God who  appears in the handiwork of  creation, and in the pages of the  Bible.  If they did take this simple  course, they might realize, as  the great Swiss theologian-  pastor Emil Brunncr did a half  century ago, that man's problem is really very simple���he is  at contradiction with the  reason foi his creation.  Brunncr calls man's dilemma  "the great contradiction"  pointing out that man was  created to be a loving companion to God, and to fulfill his  stewardship over the earth and  all that dwells in it, in a loving  relationship with God, and  with his fellow humans.  Simply put, mankind was  meant to be loving in all of its  relationships, and to develop  and use the innate skills which  God, in his loving mercy,  implants in each one of us who  draw breath.  Under this lifestyle, it is  imperative that each one of us  be humble and unselfish,  returning to God the love he  first gave us, by serving him  simply, obediently and un-  questioningly, and in the  process realizing more of our  own human potential, which is  to be a creature capable of  extending love unselfishly  Down thiough history, it has  always been hard for any'  individual to live this way,  because he or she is a societal  animal, and must seek the  company of his or her own kind  for survival and comfort. The  problem is that the societal  animals have all the manners  and  degrees of aggressions,  ranging from downright arrogance to namby-pamby weakness, and they cannot appear to  live in harmony and unity, due  to this radical diversity of  aggressiveness.  But Jesus Christ, when he  walked this earth, was poignantly aware, as his Father in  heaven was also, that the  greatest difficulty with mankind was not the inability to  live together in peace and  amity, but the "great contradiction" in his nature which  encouraged him to turn against  his own creator, and to believe  himself to have the capability  of forging his own destiny.  It is only through monumental arrogance, coupled  with pride and ego, that could  have made mankind in the past  set himself up against his own  creator, but in today's fantastic  technological world the temptation becomes stronger, and  puny little humans suddenly  are able to see themselves^as  giants, harnessing limitless  power with their own hands.  Given this proud arrogance  rampaging throughout the  land, it would appear to be  extremely difficult to avoid  being caught up in the swell.  But Jesus foresaw this difficulty when he was here on  earth, and he prayed to his  Father in heaven to send  another Counsellor to be with  those who believe his gospel,  "even the Spirit of truth", (John  14:17a), to abide with his  disciples and to guide them and  strengthen them.  And this Spirit is available to  all as a constant companion,  and, as the great apostle Paul  said, those who walk in the  Spirit enjoy the fruits of the  Spirit, which are: "love, joy,  peace, patience, kindness,  goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control." (Galatians  5:22,23).  It is hard to know where  today's blatant commercialism  in the name of God, and in the  name of mankind, would fit in  there!  If  11.

That's our theme for the  ever-popular, successful event,  and last Saturday night proved  no exception by raising over  $200 for the Egmont Community Club. Their culinary delights are presented three times  a year and in all fairness,  though the whole town chips in  to help, their ultimate success  must be attributed to our hardworking convener, Betty Silvey.

Then each student invited a  Trustee for a partner, taught  them the dance and together  they performed it again. Mrs.  Brook's older students had  advanced to beginning choreography putting movement to  music, and presenting a costumed chorus line integrating a  variety of styles including  acrobatic dance. It was interesting to see the influence of  television making these young  children far more sophisticated  than one would expect foi their  years. This group also involved  the Trustees in black Spanish  sombreros, being taught' the  steps of a formal line dance  routine and dancing with the  children.

Miss Allen's drama club  which meets after school and is  preparing a play for later next  month, took the Trustees  through a workshop involving  mime, body language, voice  production, etc., continuing  the process of demonstrating  our shared humanity regardless  of age.  Miss Allen and Miss  Knecht's Grade Sevens explained the work they had been  doing in Social Studies about  life in Roman times with the aid  of a model port.

Joint offices in  jeopardy again  The proposed Joint Office Facility for the Sechelt Municipal  Council and the Sunshine Coast Regional District again appears  to be facing an uncertain future.  Director David Hunter, of Area F, reporting from a meeting on  the facility which is being considered for the site of the sewage  treatment plant held on April 10, said that he was reluctant to  recommend the go-ahead for a building of the magnitude  proposed.  Hunter said that the building would cost approximately  $225,000 while there was available $80,000 from the Village of  Sechelt and $ 100,000 at the present time from the Regional Board.  "It is still an excellent project," said Hunter, "if it can be  financed." Hunter also pointed out that rent for the Regional  Board space presently occupied had gone up from $8,000 to  $16,000 in the year and a half since the inception of the building  project. "At $225,000 it might well be worthwhile in 10 years  because of the rent increase.  Director Hunter moved that the Joint Office Facility project be  re-assessed by the Finance Committee of the Regional Board and  the motion was passed.  Ranta Report  advice followed  Jack Mayne celebrated twice last week. He is pictured  here at the anniversary of Vimy Ridge. Earlier in the  week, the Sechelt Legion laid on a party to celebrate  his 89th birthday.  Readers will recall the report  of Dr. Lawrence E. Ranta in  December of last year, resulting from the request of St.  Mary's Hospital Board for an  investigation into certain allegations concerning the running  of the Hospital. Implementation of applicable recommendations in this report is proceeding.  Recently, a Joint Conference  Committee was established,  consisting   of   representatives  Highways policy concern  Concern was expressed at the  Regional Board meeting held  on April 10 that what may be a  change in policy by the provincial Department of Highways  will have costly repercussions  for the Regional District.  A letter from the Minister of  Transportation and Highways,  Alex Fraser, dated March 27  advised that the policy of the  Highways Department will be  to limit input from theirstaff in  respect to the subdivisions of  land to the discussion of their  responsibilities in respect to  'access'.  The apprehension was expressed by Regional Board  members that this stated policy  will mean more regional staff  time will be required for  subdivision approval.  The Department of Highways have been the approving  officers for subdivisions in the  Region," said Director Joe  Harrison. "They have the staff  for it. We don't have the field  staff here."  "If Highways disowns Technical Field Work, we, or  someone else is going to have to  pay for it. The question is who  is going to have to pay for it."  Sechelt Representative Brian  Stelck recommended that the  Regional Board seek requisite  funding for the function but  Planner Bill Lindsay suggested  that clarification be sought first  from Highways regarding the  ramifications of their stated  policy.  from the Board, Medical,  Administration, Nursing and  other care disciplines, and  service staff, to provide the  Board with advice on matters  pertaining to patient care,  working environment and  inter-departmental relationships. The Committee is intended to create a forum in which  all concerned may contribute  and, at the same time, acquire a  deeper mutual understanding  of health care problems.  As well, a new concept has  been initiated to develop a team  approach for the care of elderly  long-term residents. This will  involve an attending Geriatric  Please turn to Page Eighteen.  "There's at least a 50/50  chance that the next major  breakthrough in computers  will come from the amateur  ranks," computer expert Peter  Harrison told the crowd gathered at Elphinstone Secondary  School on Sunday to attend the  Sunshine Coast's first Computer Forum. "Professionals in  other fields who get involved in  computers often bring fresh  ideas to this field. Amateurs  have one great advantage over  professionals in computers;  amateurs don't know what's  supposed to be impossible."  "If there's one thing I've  learned in this business,"  Harrison added, "it's to erase  the words 'always' and 'never'  from my vocabulary."  Harrison told that crowd  that though most computers  are used in business, employing over a million professionals, there are now an estimated  half million amateurs dabbling  in the field and their number is  on the rise.  Computers are now in use in  some aspect of virtually all  business and administration.  Harrison pointed out that  personal computers, used primarily for recreation and  entertainment, are excellent  training grounds for a career in  this expanding field.  "Computers are creative,"  Harrison said. "They invite  creativity. You no sooner  figure out what they can do,  than you want to figure out  ways of making them do other  things. It isn't long before most  amateurs who get involved are  inventing and even selling their  own programs. Computer  people generally like their jobs  because there's always that  creative element."  Harrison pointed to Gambier Island resident Bill Smith  as a prime example of creative  amateur computer programming. "Bill's done things  nobody had done before,"  Harrison said, referring to  Smith's ROM THE ROBOT  video character who not only  plays a mean game of "X's and  O's", at selected skill levels, but  cheats into the bargain. (The  best the Coast News staff could  manage was a tie.) "I've  suggested programs to Bill,"  Harrison said, "that I'm not  even sure are possible and a  month later he walks in the  door with them."  Harrison said he expects a  major breakthrough in computer theory in the next few  years. At present, in spite of  dramatic improvements in the  sophistication of computer  technology, basic computer  theory hasn't changed since the  1930's when the first computers  were built.

On Gambier mining  Government ignores advice  by John Moore  A letter received March 28 by  John Rich, Chairman of the  Islands Trust, from the Minister of the Environment,  Stephen Rogers, states that "the  Environment and Land Use  Committee have reviewed the  matter in detail and conclude  that there is insufficient information to make an objective  assessment". That is virtually a  direct quote lifted from the  Summary of a report entitled  "Gambier Island. Recreational  and Visual Analyses", prepared  for the Environment and Land  Use Committee Secretariat by  Eikos Design Group of Vancouver.  The report actually states:  'The lack of information on the  extent and magnitude of the  proposed open pit mine make it  impossible to arrive at a  detailed assessment of impact  on recreational use and the  visual quality of Gambier  Island. However, a number of  observations can be made..."  Those observations include  "opportunities  for  an   inten  sively managed 'wilderness  type' recreational experience",  that would be compatible with  limited forest industry on the  Island, and the observation  that "The opportunity for  recreational use of this type  would be precluded by open pit  mining on the Island for the  forseeablc future".  The report goes on to state  that "visual impact", a relatively recent consideration in  studies of this kind, is one ofthe  most important considerations  in this case. "The areas ol  highest potential visual impact  are along ridgelincs and the  shoreline. The maintenance of  the continuity of these landscape characteristics is important since they arc the strongest  visual elements in the landscape. Their protection is  essential to the preservation of  the region's natural landscape  character". In short, the presence of a 24 hour operating  floodlit open pit mine, not to  mention the attendant blasting  of the Islands steep slopes to  accommodate loading facilities, is something which wtll  affect not only Gambier Island  and Howe Sound as a whole,  but the Lower Mainland and  the Sunshine Coast as well.  The report points out that  the "natural experience of the  circumnavigating Gambier  Island in large boats would be  degraded by the industrial  presence of the dock and  loading facilities and possibly  the mine site itself. It points  out that church and educational groups, some of whosi'  campsites are very close to  areas under exploration, would  have to relocate off the island  and that "out-tripping" pro-  Please turn In Pai;e Nineteen.  886-7454  "Untltvr tfct Or*M Qmmmpf"  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  SANSUI  PERFECTION  COLLECTION  Regular: $2,049  SALE PRICE: $1,599.88  SR-222 Mk II Turntable  TU-217 AM/FM Stereo Tuner  AU-117 Mk II Stereo Amplifier  - 25 watts per channel  AX-7 Audio Mixer  SC-1110 Cassette Deck  S-50C Speakers - 75 watts  GX-5 Audio Stand*  you won't beteve your ears  * Optional: ���   - MA-7 Monitor Consolette with Cue Monitor Speakers  - Sansui Audio Accessories Case  884-5240  Dunham Rd., Port Mellon Coast News, April 15, 1980  Strikes and spares flr^   :��� .        u������.ici  -,r, 0,0 ^mW'~  Bert Halliwell, the coach of the U.B.C.

Cozy Court Bruins victorious  The SCMHL Cozy Court  Bruins, undefeated in regular  league play, regrouped after  being upset in their final series  by Roberts Creek to win the  "Burnaby Easter Invitational  Tournament" held over the  Easter weekend. The Bruins  were bolstered by the return to  action of two of their injured  players, as well as Sammy  Casey who had been absent  from the team for the final two  months of the season and who  played some outstanding goal  lor the local club.  The Bruins, playing five  games in three days, won the  $1,000 lL....nament with teams  entered from Burnaby,Coquitlam, Richmond and Edmonton. In the first three games of  the initial round-robin, the  Bruins appeared to have everything their own way, completely dominating their first  three opponents. But in their  fourth game they played the  Burnaby Amateur Hockey  League Canadicns who were  also undefeated in three previous games. In this contest the  Bruins, while badly outplaying  the Canadiens, failed to capitalized on their chances and  lost 4-3 in the last minute of the  game.  The top two teams in the  round-robin advanced to the  finals, which were held at the  beautiful Karen Magnusson  Arena, a rematch of the earlier  Bruins-Canadiens game. In this  game, the Bruins came out fired  up and jumped into leads of 3-1  and 4-2 after two periods. An  extremely exciting and cleanly  played final game with good  action all the way through.  Some of the individual stars  chosen during the tournament  were  Dale   Benner  who  put  together five good games, as  well as Darren Dixon and  Bobby Dixon who both played  good sound hockey. Dave  Lamb rebounded from a painful shoulder injury suffered in  the local finals to lead the way  as one of the top snipers, but it  was linemate Kelly Bodnarck  who was chosen MVP in the  tourney for his consistent  outstanding play. In the five  games Bodnarek accounted for  13 goals and numerous assists,  and was chosen first star in four  of the live games played. For  their weekend the club picked  up four trophies as well as a  first place cheque for $700, and  an invitation back to defend  their title. The hockey club  wishes to thank Cliff Lindsay,  owner of the Cozy Court  Bruins, for his continued fine  sponsorship, and all those fans  who followed the team on the  tournament.  In further SCMHL happenings, it appears that the play-off  champion Roberts Creek team  will be travelling to Squamish  in a pair of weekend games with  their league champs "The  Floormen".

When it died it was  not due to lack of learning  disabilities, but because none at  the time had the necessary  energy to do the work required.  However, in spite of this lack  of formal structure, many  hours are spent by anonymous  volunteers who provide advice  and encouragement to parents  in distress.  Continuing Education has  received many requests to offer  a short series of lectures on the  subject of Learning Disabilities  and the Vancouver Association  has been very co-operative and  understanding of local needs.  The three lectures to be  offered will form the basis for  further programs in the fall.  On April 21, next Monday at  7:30 p.m., Mrs. Barbara Reid  who is a learning therapist, will  start by giving some general  information about what a  learning disability is and  especially what it is not.  Barbara Reid has a learning  disabled child herself and is  very aware of the stress and  strain that is connected to  dealing with behaviour problems. She will show some ways  of dealing with these problems  and last but not least inform  parents about places to go for  help.  The second session will be  lead by Mrs. Karen Archer,  who is the Vice President ofthe  Vancouver Association. She  will introduce a panel of  parents who are "living and  coping with these kids all day,  every day. Karen Archer will  show that there are ways 'to  find the light at the end of the  tunnel'," even if the future often  looks dark.  The last session will deal  mainly with teenagers, and a  young girl from Vancouver will  talk about how she is living  with  her learning disability.

Rennie, Member of  the Christian Science Board of  Lectureship. This lecture is  offered free to the public on  Sunday, April 20, at the  Twilight Theatre, Gibsons.  Some would contend that, in  modern times, honesty is not  fi'My practical, therefore not  advisable; yet Jesus of Nazareth said his purpose was to  bear witness to 'the truth', and  the truth, he promised, 'shall  make you free'. Mr. Rennie will  develop the thought that  honesty has a profoundly  religious, spiritual basis.  Mr. Rennie, whose home is  Denver, Colorado, speaks in  centres throughout western  North America about Christian Science, a way of life that  draws life and thought together.  Everyone interested is warmly invited to attend his lecture,  lecture.  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  1490 SOUTH FLETCHER ROAD  P.O. BOX 340, GIBSONS, B.C.

Copland  MUNICIPAL CLERK Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  Heat  This is a reminder that with  this warm weather wc should  be conscious about leaving  dogs in our cars while wearc off  going about our business.  Leaving the window open a  crack is not enough. If you are  worried that the dog will  escape, then open all the  windows slightly; animals die  every summer after being left in  vehicles. Don't let it happen to  yours. Even if talk about their  dying is a wee bit extreme, the  discomfort to the animal is  enough to warrant attention.  I was talking with a fellow  reporter about this; he mentioned that his windshield  broke from the inside pressure  after leaving his car in the sun,  so this should give you some  idea of the kind of pressure that  can build up.  Dolphins again  A couple of weeks ago I  wrote about the slaughter of  dolphins by the Japanese. Well,  not to be outdone, we're getting  in on the act ourselves. The  University of Guelph has been  given a million bucks by the  U.S. Fisheries to experiment on  some of them with oil, once  again to see what happens.  Granted, they are not going  to bathe them in this oil or  pump it into them. Instead,  they are going to attach little  discs to their skin and monitor  the results. Apparently the skin  of the dolphin is very sensitive  and they should be able to get  appreciable results. This does  seem to be a bit more civilized  than what happened to the  polar bears recently, but I can't  help thinking that if no one had  raised a stink about it, the  experiments may have been  quite a bit different.  It's certainly very open-  pocketed of the U.S.'ers to give  the University the money, then  allow them to go down to  Florida where they will be able  to catch and experiment on the  mammals. Are Canadian scientists so far ahead that the  Americans have to use us, or  are they keeping their hands  clean? Dr. Geraci does not  exactly have a shining track  record. To date, he's killed  everything he's tested. Or is it  that we Canadians will do  anything for money and the  Coast News, April  U.S.'s oil monster?  Marsh Society Executive  The Marsh Society will be  holding its annual meeting on  Thursday, March 17 in the  music room in Chatelech at  7:30 p.m. The main order of  business will be to pick an  executive, so if you have  anyone in mind, get up there  and vote.  Odds V ends  Summer can't be far away;  I've had my first bee sting. The  little beggar climbed up my  pant leg and laid into me  (below the knee).  You may remember when  the dog salmon were being  helped up the fish ladder in  Wilson Creek last winter, one  of the fish had a tag on it. I was  talking with Lawrence Chambers on Saturday and he told  me that it had been tagged three  months earlier in Johnstone  Straits.  Yesterday (Saturday) I went  up for a look at the deer on the  little island off the Halfmoon  Bay wharf. It had been seen a  couple of days before, running  down the streambed and into  the water. It was out of breath,  so had presumably been chased  by dogs, although none were  seen. When I was there, it had  been on the island for a couple  of days and was expected to  make a break for it when it got  dark. Maybe we should start  licensing the dog owners instead of the dogs.  That's all, so if you want to  contact me, call 886-2622/886-  7817 or 886-9151, ta.  Problems in forest management  by Don Lockstead, MLA  Minister of Forests Tom  Waterland has announced a  $1.4 billion "Forest Management Plan" for B.C. A massive  technical report released at the  same time suggests that this will  be woefully inadequate.  The timber supply situation  in B.C. is fast approaching a  state of acute crisis. Much of  the old growth which sustained  the development of our leading  industry has been harvested,  while the province and the  major companies have failed to  satisfactorily restock denuded  lands.  Within 20 years virtually all  of the newly created timber  supply areas will be unable to  support current levels of allowable annual cut and the more  valuable species will be near  exhaustion. Unless decisive  action is taken, this will mean  logging layoffs, the closure of  mills and a severe jolt to the  entire provincial economy.  Waterland is long on rhetoric but short on substance. His  $1.4 billion program includes  the entire Forest Service budget  for the next five years and a  stumpage rebate to the major  companies of more than $400  million. To be sure there is a  significant increase in spending, but the new policy fails to  address the most significant  problems.  Basically, Waterland argues  that reforestation and intensive  This shot was taken with a telephoto lens so as not to disturb the deer. It had been sitting on this rock for two  days. See adjoining Wildlife Corner.  15, 1980 15.  forest management will get us  over the crisis. While initiatives  in these areas are long overdue,  we should not fool ourselves  into thinking that throwing  money at a problem will make  it go away.  Research and past experience indicate that the gains  from improved forest management are uncertain and that an  enormous effort will be needed  simply to stand still. Yet under  their "Incentives Program", this  government will actually allow  the major companies to increase their cut if they undertake to be better managers of  the forest resource.  Many experts argue that our  rate of exploitation of the forest  must slow down if we are really  to enjoy a renewable resource  capable of supplying the needs  of future generations. If this is  true, wc must change the  structure ofthe industry to take  account of new realities.  The so-called forestry plan  completely fails to discuss these  opportunities and operates on  the assumption that the status  quo can remain more or less  unchanged. Yet the major  companies use more and more  timber, while the innovative  and more labor-intensive small  business sector is the first to feel  the crunch.  The government's welcome  new initiatives need to be  complemented by a forest  policy which looks to more  intensive use of a resource  which can no longer be seen as  unlimited.

Prior to that  day, logging camps had been  erupting in nearly every bay  along the Inlets, but a war  requires men for fighting, and  the army's gain was the camps'  loss. With the going of the  loggers also went much of the  livelihood of those who had set  themselves up in supportive  businesses.  One of those who had to sit  back and watch his business all  but die for want of sustenance  was John West Sr. who, with  his mother and brother, had  lived on Nelson Island for some  time, lie had built a storc-cum-  hotel and post office, calling it  Wcstmerc Lodge. It was to  serve the hordes of loggers who  were pouring into the area but.  as those same hordes now  poured out toward the maelstrom in far-off Europe, he  could only wait and watch his  venture crumble.  Tug Wilson and the Young-  blood brothers left their Kil-  larney Lake operation and  went off to enlist along with  many others, others whose  names are lost somewhere in  the past, and Egmont reverted  to the quiet pace of previous  limes.  Axes still rang, great trees  still fell and fish were still  pulled over wet gunwales, but  the atmosphere of burgeoning  growth and power had gone.  Gladys McNutt, in her  articles of 25 years ago tells a  story about Tug Wilson to  illustrate the quietude of the  day.  Tug, who must have been  able to enlist, was taking care of  John West's store on Nelson  Island while the latter was in  town for a few days. He was so  lonely, and it was so quiet, that  he put a record on the wind-up  gramophone and, when the  needle stuck in a groove and the  word 'Halleluja' was repeated  over and over, he let it go on,  just to hear the sound of a  voice, until the machine finally  ran down.  Even though progress had  slowed, it had not yet died.  Alfred Jefferies, who had come  a few years earlier, was joined  by his brother Bob in 1915. Bob  sel up his home on the south  shore near where Joe Silvey  and George Vaughan had been  burnt out.  In 1917, in response to a  request from Walter Wray, a  school was built. He had  wanted to have it near his and  George Vaughan's place, by  the Chuck, but he was overruled, it being felt that the  rapids were too dangerous for  the children who would have to  row lo and from school. The  site finally agreed upon was  down the shore by Joe Silvey's  place.  The first teacher was Miss  King, loved by parents and  children alike, according to the  late Mrs. Vaughan. She earned  the grand total of S65 a month  for the privilcdge of teaching a  handful of children and of  rowing every day from Walter  Wray's, where she boarded, to  school; a route deemed too  dangerous for those same  children whom she taught. It  was likely for this reason that  she, and the many who were to  follow her, stayed only a short  time.  Also in that same year,  Walter Wray and Alfred Jefferies built a store near the new  school for a man named  Leonard Bailey. Wray, who  managed the store, was granted  the right to open a post office  there and it was at this point in  time that the name Egmont was  given official recognition by the  government.  Every Saturday night, from  Elphie Report  On April 9, all the grades had  an assembly in the morning.  They were spoken to by Mr.  Boulton and Mr. Foxall about  bursaries and scholarships. Mr.  Smeaton talked to us about  volunteer work.  On Wednesday the Senior  Girls' Soccer Team travelled to  Surrey. The girls played a hard  game against a very physical  opposing team but lost a hard  battle. The final score was 4-0.  Should you see students  walking around in a daze,  oblivious of all around them,  have pity on them. It is exam  week; midterms are being taken  and lives are being turned  upside down. Report cards will  be sent home at the end of the  week. After that, all will be  back to normal���lor a few  months.  Mr. Heathey's Law 11 class  travelled to trie B.C. Peniten  tiary on April 10 for a tour. The  tour was quite extensive,  lasting about three hours. The  students were shown all over  the "Pen", including the maximum security and solitary  confinement cells. The students  got to see first-hand the  writings on the walls of these  people. "It gave me the willies,"  says one student. "The security  was unreal," says another. The  trip was thoroughly enjoyed by  all the students.  On the morning of April 10.  Elphie had a fire drill. Mr.  Boulton was happy to say the  building was empty in one  minute and thirty-three seconds. Way to go, Elphie!  The vice-presidential elections took place on Thursday.  It was a very close race, with  Mairi Robertson coming out  the victor.  Chatelech News  Parents of students at Chatelech Secondary School arc  invited to participale in two  functions at the school this  month.  April 23 is Open House Day  at Chatelech. Principal June  Bernauer informs that plans for  the evening include a meeting  wilh parents to discuss course  offerings for next year, displays  of student work from various  subject areas, ��nd a general  tour of the school followed by  coffee and sweets. The Open  House evening will ge underway at 7:00 p.m.  On April 28, parents and any  others interested are also  invited lo join the staff of  Chatelech School for the Non-  Instructional Day.  "This will provide members  of the community with an  opportunity to have input into  our plans for next year and also  to see first-hand what teachers  do on non-instructional days,"  sail' Bernauer.  1$ Your Car  BEGGING For A   _  %  Second Chance?j  BEAUTIFUL BODIES  tARE OUR BUSINESS^  BRIANS AUTO BODY  ft PAINTING LTO.

After the war, Nellie Young-  blood's father returned to  Agamemnon Channel to resume logging with Tug Wilson.  Nellie, who had often visited  wounded soldiers in hospital in  Vancouver, where she had lived  during the war years, had  married one of them. She and  her husband went first to the  Fraser Valley, but presently  joined her father. It was for  Nellie and her husband that a  very important bay was named  in later years when Powell  River was to be connected by  road and ferry lo the rest of the  province. Nellie's husband was  Tom Earl, and the ferry terminal was built in front of their  home and named Earl's Cove.  In 1919 Leonard Bailey sold  out to a veteran by the name of  Major Southerland and moved  to Roberts Creek where he  opened and ran a store for  many years. Major Souther-  land didn't stay long in Egmont  either, but went on to Sechelt  where he built a place called  ...Wakefield.  Another war veteran came to  Egmont in 1920, a veteran  weary of war, weary of searching for a home for his growing  family and to the first three  major names of Egmont's  history was added the fourth.  Jefferies, Silvey and Vaughan  were joined by the family  Griffith.  To be continued.

Other entrants  informed us that it was 'a sheep's bum' and that it is known to the regulars as the  "Sassmar".  Gibsons Auxiliary  by Elizabeth Johnston  The April meeting of the  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  was held on April 2, 1980, at  1:30 p.m. at the Calvary Baptist  Church with 23 members  present.  First Vice President Marion  McConnell presided over a  very interesting and fruitful  meeting. The minutes of the  last meeting were read by  Secretary Pearl Dove and the  Treasurer's report was given by  Violet Harris. Member Joan  Rigby gave a most moving  prayer remembering all our  member, and friends who, at  the moment of writing, are in  need of our combined support.  The prayer was concluded with  a lovely verse.  May Winning, Joy Maxwell,  Dodie  Archer and  Elizabeth  Pender School news  by Dawn Adamson  Well, we're in school again  and 1 bet that the parents just  love it. On the first Tuesday  back in school, it sure was  obvious���I mean after 10 days  of staying up late and getting  up late we had to get up at 7:00  a.m.??? Is that ever a jolt! The  school seemed like a walking  morgue with all those half-dead  bodies walking around. Now  we're back to normal.  Things around the school  have really been getting done  lately. All around the school  has been beautifully landscaped with wood chips and  shrubs. We also now have new  bleachers and 1 can now say  that the school area is pleasant  to look at. The only bad part is  the used portables at the side of  the school. These things are  covering our tennis courts and  wc can't wait to get rid of them.  I am really amazed at how  clean and undamaged our  school is. The students really  care how it looks, and that's  important. In most schools you  walk into a washroom and  there are "inscriptions" all over  the place. You won't find  anything like that in our  washrooms.

There was a baseball game  between the CR-12 class and  the Alternate School. The  Community Recreation class  won. Congratulations!

He has taken up the  vacant position of Librarian.  He's not sure whether or not he  will go back lo obtain his  Doctorate.  Another matter of interest is  the pool���will it ever get  finished? I think so but I'm not  sure when. When it does open I  suggest you find an hour or so  for a swim. It's a great physical  activity.  The Grad Club has been  taken over by Mr. Talento.

We had  stopped to watch a big turn of  logs being landed by the yarder  and as we were above the action  in the landing of running men  and whirling drums as they  rapidly spooled out line, we  had a good view from where we  were standing.  Mainline, haulback and  receding line drums were  spinning on the yarder as the  logs were landed on the  ground; the big skyline drum  on the slackline machine was  spooling out slowly as the  chaser signaled for slack to  enable him to unhook the  chokers; and the duplex engineer was slamming a big fir  log onto a rail car partly  loaded, to pound himself a  good lay for the load he was  building.  Added to the din of rattling  tagline and butt rigging chains  and the clanging of steel choker  bells was the 'chugata-chugata-  chugata' of exhaust steam from  ram-rodding pitman arms as  they whirled the bull gears that  rolled the huge drums. As the  chokers were being unhooked  from the yarder butt-rigging,  the duplex slowly rolled one  drum to feed slack to his second  loader. The 'kachuk-kachuk-  kachuk' at the end of each  stroke of the piston rod  suddenly increased into a blur  of sound as the tongman began  to run; the tong was thrown  with a spin and the engineer  reversed the drum to grab the  slack as the open tongs hit the  log.  Our eyes swung to the chaser  as he let out a yell of'ho-ho' and  waved his arm to signal the  return of the rigging to the  woods. Then thedual'kachuk-  kachuk-kachuk' of yarder and  slackline as the rigging and  carriage was slowly picked up  from the ground, then, when in  the clear, the sudden increase of  exhaust steam into a blur of  sound as the rigging went flying  back to the waiting crew on the  sidehill.  As we watched this frenzied  action of a highball crew the  sky had darkened and turned a  brassy yellow. Smoke, steam  and wood ash had accumulated  above the machines on the still  morning air, but as the day  brightened, a slight breeze  began to move the cloud up the  narrow valley.  We had been so engrossed by  this orchestrated co-ordination  of men, machines and rigging  that a full Five minutes must'  have gone by. We were just  turning to continue our climb  when I noticed Bill Werner  standing on the tracks below,  waving his arms and shouting  at the top of his lungs.  "Oh, oh," I thought. "Five  minutes on the job and we are  in the soup already!"  1 said to Art, "Hey, he's  waving at us to come down!"  "To hell with him. Pretend  we don't see him!" With that  Art and Lawson turned their  backs and began climbing.  But Werner was still shouting and waving and I was  looking right at him. He would  probably have climbed into a  choicer and ridden the carriage  back to the woods to fire us if  we all had ignored him, so back  down the trail I went. I'd never  been fired off a job before and  from what I had heard about  Werner, 1 didn't much relish  this being the first time. "Ah,  well," I rationalized, "I was  looking for a job when I found  this one so I'll just go on  looking!"  Werner was standing in the  middle of the tracks with his  hands on his hips when I hit the  bottom.  "What in hell do you guys  think this is, a picnic?" he  stormed. "You weren't sent up  here to stand around watching.  You were sent up here to work!  Now get your ass down there  on that slackline machine. The  engineer will show you what to  do!"  He turned away angrily,  leaving me standing with open  mouth. It took a moment to  realize I still had a job, that I  was to work on the slackline  machine, and that I had not the  foggiest idea of what was  expected of me. But the engineer was waving at me to  come so I was about to get  some answers in a hurry!  "I'm Bob Bell," he said as he  stuck out his hand. "Do you  know anything about firing a  steampot?"  While I was hem-hawing  around for a good lie to tell, he  said, "Come, I'll show you."  We walked the running  board past friction levers,  stepped over drumline brakes,  and ducked under a strawline  lever. He stopped to show me a  steam gauge on the side of the  boiler, a water glass with high  and low marks, and explained  their functions.  When Bob had mentioned  firing a steampot I had visions  of sawing and splitting wood,  stuffing it into the gaping maw  of that hungry-gutted wood  hog and becoming a slave to a  fire and brimstone monster.  Imagine my relief when Bob  began to explain the functions  of firing an oil burner.  "Take a look in that firebox  and watch that flame," he  instructed. "See that colour  change when I turn this valve?  And notice the difference in the  sound of that fire?"  I nodded and took hold of  the valve to try it myself. He  soon corrected my over-reactions and between us we settled  the flame down into some  semblance of what he required.  My other duties were right  up my alley. Being a trucker I  was a pretty good mechanic. To  keep two gas water pumps and  a fire pump fueled up and  pumping water was going to be  a cinch. And the icing on the  cake was the fact that all three  pumps were located on the edge  of a deep pool of Rosewall  Creek that flowed beneath the  runners and in the shade of that  886-7454  ��Un4��r the Greta Ctnopy"  #181 ��� Ctmt PUM  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  fyfeAmidfe  tAe detail  When crisis strikes, we're  there.

About once an hour I was to  start up the two pumps that  supplied water to both steam-  pots, and while they were  filling, start up the fire pump  and wet down around the  landing to prevent fires from  breaking out due to sparks or  line friction.  I was a pretty busy guy for  awhile until Bob had settled me  down into a routine of handling  the fire and water business on  my own. He turned out to be a  Prince of a guy and I learned  fast from him.  During our lunch break he  told me a lot about steam but  most especially about the big  slackline skidder across the  tracks.  "She was built in the U.S. and  called a Lidgerwood Slackline  Skidder. They used to have the  skyline drum on her but found  it easier to keep steam up by  using a second machine like  this one.  "She was brought in from  Louisiana and used around  Discovery Bay about 1926.  Strangely enough, the experienced crew that came in with  her were mostly Finlanders and  they taught our people how to  rig up and put it to its best use."  "As you see, she's built on  her own set of tracks and can  only be moved by rail as she  weighs around 200 tons. When  fully rigged with guy lines and  spare line she requires 22 miles  of cable. With the carriage  lifted clear off the ground and  logs suspended in the air she  can carry 20 tons and travel up  to 20 miles per hour. On a good  day she'll yard up to 200 logs  from a skyline stretched up to  5000 feet up the hill.  "She had to be fast for these  long swings and for this reason  the crews named her the 'Flying  Machine'!"  I asked him about the  Duplex loader and he went on.  "It's called a 'duplex' because  it has two separate drums, side  by side, each with its own lever  and containing its own tong  line.  "As you see, there are two  tongs and two tong men. Each  is fed line as he runs out the log  and it takes an expert to flip  those 90-pound tongs so they  land on top and open. That  leverman has to be fast to take  up slack and grab that log  before the tong bounces off.  "It's not unusual to load 50  to 60 cars a day, and in wood  like this, the loads could run  5000 to 6000 feet per car." The  conversation and Bob's lunch  ran out about the same time as  the skidder engineer blew the  starting whistle and the whistle-  punk in the woods came back  on his jerk-line with a 'go  ahead' signal. I was sorry to  have the lesson end, for Bob  told an interesting and smooth-  flowing chronology of steampot logging, and I was an eager  beaver to learn in them thar  days. But when that whistle  blew, the lesson was over for  the day.  When we had arrived in the  early dawn I had thought the  loader was rigged with a  'haywrack' loading boom, but  in the light of day I could see  there were only tong line blocks  hung on guy lines over the  waiting rail cars. For that  tongman to pull slack in that  heavy line while shouldering  that set of tongs was a gut-  wrenching job. I was glad then  that I had dropped off that  sidehill and faced up to Bill  Werner.  I was just leaning back  smugly in the shade when there  came a shout from the skidder  engineer.  "Hey, you big lunkhead! Get  that fire hose out here!"  With a start, I realized that a  big smoke had flared up at the  back of that big woodburner. I  jumped for the creek and the  starting rope on that fire pump.  It took me maybe two  minutes to get water up to the  fire but in that short time whe  was almost away from us. By  stringing out more hoses and  with help from the landing crew  we soon had it out, but it  showed us how dangerous the  situation was becoming.  Bill Werner arrived about  this time and as he had just  taken a humidity reading,  decided to shut her down for  the day. The crews were called  in and the speeder crummies  brought up for the crews.  By the time the rigging crew  had worked their way down the  hill, checking for friction fires  on the way down, I had rolled  up the hoses, readied the  pumps for further action and  had a wash in the creek to  freshen up and cool off.  When Art and Lawson  stepped down off that bank,  their faces blackened from  grime and sun and wringing  wet from sweat, the expressions  on their faces when they saw me  standing all cool and clean in  the shade of that machine will  live in my memory forever.  Art's grin lit up that grimy  face, his eyes crinkled at the  corners as he gave me a  quizzical look, but he was  shaking his head from side to  side like an old grizzler, hardly  believing what he was seeing. I  could see his lips moving but  could only guess at what he  might be saying above the hiss  of steam from blowing down  boilers of the steampots, the  panting of the locy as it waited  for the speeders to get out ofthe  way and the shouts of men as  they fought for the breezy seats  next to the windows.  I had to stay on fire watch for  a couple of hours so didn't  learn until later what Art had  been saying.  He summed it all up by  stating that I was the luckiest  guy in the world, compared to  him. He said, "If we fell into a  barrel full of mammary glands,  I'd come up sucking my thumb  and you'd come up with your  mouth full!"  Next week the big fire!  Gambier mining  Coast News, April 15, 1980  19.  Continued from Page Thirteen,  grams for students would have  to be curtailed.  The report concludes: "These  impacts should be considered  in the context of the limited  land base suitable for recreational use within the Howe  Sound Region, the erosion of  this land base through other  established industrial uses and  private property alienation,  and the increasing demand for  recreational opportunities."  A representative of Eikos  Design Group, contacted by  the Coast News, said, "We're  not allowed to comment on the  report at all. Our job was  simply to collect information.  The government is under no  obligation to act on those  observations." Questioned a-  bout the possibility of a full  environmental impact study on  the effects of an open pit copper  molybdenum mine on the  Island and surrounding areas,  the Eikos representative said,  "Tera Consultants are handling  the environmental end of the  study".  The reference was to the  companion study by Tera  Consultants Limited: "Resource Inventory and Assessment of Gambier Island". The  Tera report, "based largely on  aerial photo interpretation  with three days of field checks  by boat and helicopter", by its  own admission, spends most of  its 20 pages in discussion ofthe  physical suitability of the  Island for "housing, transportation, and port and industrial facilities".  The report points to what it  calls potential "Resource Conflicts", a term used to describe  say, the mutual incompatibility  of a specific wildlife resource  with an open pit mine, in a  number of areas of the Island  including, Ekins Point, Gambier Lake, Brigade Bay, the  Gambier Creek and Mannion  Creek  valleys, Douglas Bay  and the bays and peninsulas of  the southern, residential part of  the Island. In its Introduction  the Tera report states that "In  the final analysis, the Biological Sensitivity and the Resource Conflict maps summarize present and potential  environmental conflict". (I-  talics mine).  However, the Tera report  refers only to "an industrial  facility"; nowhere is there any  mention of an open pit copper  molybdenum mine with a  projected ore body something  inexcess of 280 million tons.  The current situation in Atlin,  where residents' groups are  demanding public hearings  into a proposed molybdenum  mine in their area, emphasizes  the need for a much deeper and  more detailed study into the  environmental impact of such a  mine on Gambier Island.  Aside from the environmental impact of a huge hole in  the ground and its industrial  appendages, open pit molybdenum mining creates a number of environmental problems. The "tailings" from the  mine; which may contain  radioactive uranium, and toxic  heavy metals such as mercury,  are stored in piles or in  "Tailings ponds". One way of  creating a tailing pond without  having to dig it, is to drain a  small lake or divert a natural  watercourse and use the resulting basin. If a leaching problem  should occur, studies on the  effects of molybdenum and its  by-products in the environment indicate that not only do  toxic heavy metals concentrate  in the flesh of fish, but  molybdenum in excess a-  mounts in the soil can cause  "molybdenosis", a condition  which affects grazing and  foraging animals, causing them  to starve themselves to death.  Domestic cattle and wild  Columbian black-tailed deer  are both present on the Island.  Save  $Sk|o  on Lmaal's  most  options.  2S% OFF POLAR  CAP ROOF  50% Off  OARAOF.

Dr. Lepawsky, who  runs the Hyperbaric Chamber  at Vancouver General Hospital, gave a detailed lecture on  the physiology, signs and  symtoms, and emergency management of diving injuries, in  particular, the bends and air  embolism.  High index of suspicion,  early diagnosis, and early  transfer to the Hyperbaric Unit  were stressed.  Mr. Tom Sheldon, a very  experienced professional diver,  as well as an Ambulance  Attendant, pointed out the  unique position of St. Mary's  Hospital, being in close proximity to some ofthe best diving  waters found anywhere. With  the ever increasing popularity  of the sport, and the depth of  the diving undertaken locally,  Tom predicts an increase in  diving-related injuries.

ENGINEER SUGGESTS A TAX HIKE FOR ENERGY HOGGING HOMES  Make energy wasting homes pay higher taxes, is an interesting suggestion  advanced by energy expert Dr. Gerhard Moog, of Toronto.  In a recent speech to the Society of Real Estate Appraisers, Dr. Moog told  appraisers they should incorporate energy efficiency into their evaluation of  both residential and commercial buildings, and then governments could either  base tax assessments on these evaluations, or apply a special "energy tax" to  penalize offenders.  Moog calls this the "Gross Socio-Economic (GSE) factor", which would be a  tool to conserve energy in the shelter industry, but also save money for the  individual or developer who is willing to build energy conservation into any  structure.  Moog equates energy waste with inflation. He says the consumer-oriented  society, throw-away habits, materialism, the bigger-is-better philosophy and  over-promotion through advertising have become a way of life and spawned  much of our current inflation. He says that until workable solutions are found  to enable economic use of renewable resources, conservation must be  practised with diligence, and if necessary, forced with taxes.  To protect the home owner and home buyer from this potential method of  penalizing energy wasters, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancovuer urges  attention to energy investigation and/or installation. If you already own a  home, there are many ways in which you can equip your home with insulation  and storm doors and windows to stop wastage. If you are searching for a new  home, check what insulation has been build into the heme you are  contemplating, or how much it would cost to add further energy saving .  techniques. You could be protecting yourself from a future tax, and certainly  will end up saving money in the present by controlling fuel and hydro bills.
