 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings ,  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4    f*J.  COAST^NEWs  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  March 29,1993 Volume 47 Issue 13  Regional district budget goes down in flames  by Roxanne Gregory  Anger and accusations rippled  through the board room Thursday night  as the Sunshine Coasl Regional District's 1993 budget was defeated in a  weighted vole by directors from the two  municipalities and the director for Pender Harbour, who split ranks with other  electoral areas.  The budget would have seen taxes  on the municipalities increase by 50 to  60 percent. The SCRD is required by  law to have an adopted budget in place  by March 31 of each year.  In heated discussion, both munipical  directors gave the board notice Sechelt  Violence  on the  rise in  Canadian  schools  by Darah Hansen  Whether real or imagined,  what appears to be an escalation in extreme acts of violence  and criminal behavior being  carried out by students on  Canadian school grounds has  many parents worried that "the  best days of their life" may not  be so for their children.  On the Sunshine Coast, district administrators report that  violent acts have not reached  the same proportions as those  occurring in schools across the  -ttrsVef-Mainli-mi, but adntit the*'"  potential is here.  "All the elements are here,"  said superintendent Clifford  Smith, adding he fears incidents  like Ihe recent Burnaby school  playground stabbing is "really  quite possible here."  Smith said on the Coast  some students are coming to  school in a "desperate" stale,  acting out their frustrations in  socially unacceptable ways.  While some incidents are  taking place at the elementary  level, Smith said things at the  secondary schools are more  serious.  Weapons have been confiscated, and assaults and harassment - verbal, physical and sexual - have taken place, some  resulting in criminal charges.  Suspensions and expulsions  have also been made.  According to Jeff Kenyon,  principal of Chatelech Secondary, while violence at the  Sechelt school has actually  decreased over the last two  years, concerns for its resurgence are real.  "We've seen some pretty  .heavy stuff," he said, adding  most of the violence encountered presently in the schools  "has not been serious."  Kenyon said at Chatelech - a  school of 466 students, grades  eight to 12 - most of the unacceptable or violent behavior is  being committed by an "easily  identifiable minority."  It's a group he described as  making up approximately len  per cenl of the overall student  population and consisting mainly of young males in the older  grades.  Kenyon said on any given  day, it's Ihis ten per cent who  take up 99 per cent of adminis-  tration's time when dealing  wilh student behaviour.  And though there is no real  evidence of gang-related activity on the Coast, Kenyon termed  many of Ihe boys in this troubled group as "wanna-be" gang  members - "Kids here on the  Coast, who, in my opinion,  have romanticized the notion of  being in gangs."  He said some of these students have had friends who  have spent time in jail on the  Lower Mainland and "it is having an effect on them,"  turn to page 2  Municipal vote plus Pender puts process in tailspin  and Gibsons will ask municipal affairs  for an investigation into this year's budget.  Sechelt director Whistler said his  council will also ask for investigations  into budgets for the past three years,  after it was revealed the regional district  ran a deficit of $278,000 last year.  Local government deficits are prohibited under the Municipal Act.  Finance chairman Brett McGillivray  explained the deficit as "an accounting  eiror.  At first, four electoral area directors  were prepared to cast votes to pass the  budget. But as Area A director Jane  Reid reminded the board, on financial  matters votes by directors are geographically weighted, based on population.  That meant dissenting directors Art  Whistler, Eric Small and Jane Reid held  the majority of votes.  "My taxpayers are net going to swallow a 50 to 60 per celt tax increase.  This is a great attempt at a snow job,"  said Eric Small. "It truly is a shock to  come to a budget meeting and find  we're $278,000 over budget from last  year and we never knew about it."  McGillivray said the board had not  overspent last year's budget, but that  the deficit was caused by a revenue  shortfall. "We never collected enough  taxes last year and our provincial grant  is down 11 per cent this year," he said.  "Everything costs more...It's been a tax  holiday for the municipalities."  But Whistler and Small disagreed,  arguing the municipalities have been  left out of the consultation process.  Under the budget which was defeated,  Sunshine Coast residents would see a  38 per cent increase in taxes.  An alternative plan would have  meant an increase close to 42 per cent.  Despite the tax increase, the budget  plan carried reductions in funding to the  Pender Harbour clinic, electoral planning, joint use of school facilities and  funding for Wesl Howe Sound recreation.  turn to page 3  Coast residents  decry closure of  Shaughnessy  by Roxanne Gregory  Acrimony and insults met  Shaughnessy Hospital's transition team member, David  Babiuk, Tuesday, as he tried to  explain the rationale used by the  Ministry of Health in closing  the 74-year-old Vancouver hospital.  Babiuk met with vocal Sunshine Coast residents at an  evening forum held in Gibsons.  As the only pro-closure representative in a panel of opponents, Babiuk was given little  opportunity to discuss the transition of services from the hospital to other facilities.  Me.anwhile, members of the  public took the opportunity'to  bash the NDP and what they  considered to be a vicious  attack by the provincial government upon existing health care  services.  Local phsyician Dr. Jim Petzold, a member of the panel,  told about the loss of neurosurgeons in the Lower Mainland  and the difficulty in arranging  Vancouver hospital bed space  for Sunshine Coast residents.  Petzold decried the loss of  experienced medical teams  from Shaughnessy, predicting  many of them would leave the  province for more stable working environments. He  condemned the  provincial government's unilateral  decision to close the  facility without consultation with health  care professionals.  "The closing of  Shaughnessy is  extremely frightening  and a real threat to  our health care sys-       tern," said Petzold.  "This is a bureaucratic government decree made for political  reasons..."  Petzold said Shaughnessy is  a major referral cenlre for  patients from the Sunshine  Coast  "Those are our beds you are  closing. The transition team  talks aboul beds; we're talking  about people," said Petzold.  Dr. Terry Amiel from the  Pender Harbour Medical Clinic  echoed Pelzold's difficulty in  currently finding Vancouver  hospital bed space for Coast  residents. He also challenged  Babiuk on the time frame for  'Shaughnessy  is a major  referral centre  for patients  from the  Sunshine  Coast'  Dr. Jim Petzold  Ihe closure, saying the beds  which are being reallocated to  Vancouver General, St. Paul's  and peripheral areas such as the  Fraser Valley and Richmond,  won't be ready to take patients  this year.  In an atmosphere of evident  hostility, Babiuk said that several studies of the Shaughnessy  buildings concluded it could not  be brought up to current building code standards and that  although $13 million as been spent in  the past ten years on  renovations  including a new  emergency room  which was lo open  in three weeks - it  did not make sense  to continue to pour  money into a structure which required    so much maintenance and had a  declining bed occupancy rate.  Babiuk said specially clinics  like Ihe spinal cord unil and lhe  Women's Heallh Cenlre will  noi be lost. He said the medical  genetics clinic, and some ambulatory clinics may slay as well.  The majority of llie buildings  al Shaughnessy will be demolished, said Babiuk. Meanwhile,  Children's and Grace hospitals  will be expanded on llie sile.  In an interview Babiuk said  the ministry is basing the closure and redistribution in part  on projected population estimates.  turn to page 2  Coles burning to get council pier approval  by Stuart Burnside  David Cole of Coles' Diesel Marine (formerly Hills Machine Shop) is again  approaching Gibsons council to allow  improvements to his controversial boat  repair service.  At a council meeting on April 13, council  will decide whether to recommend that the  department of fisheries grant Coles an extension to his foreshore lease, allowing him to  build a pier some 250 feet out from shore.  "It would let me provide better service for  my customers," Coles said of his proposal  last week.  His property, which has been located on  its present site since the 1940s, has become  controversial because neighbouring residences don't want it to expand. They claim  it's too noisy and has had an adverse affect  on their property values.  A recent application by Coles to have the  property rezoned so he could build a second  repair berth beside his existing one was  defeated in a split council vote decided by  mayor Eric Small.  On Friday Small said he has not decided  how he'll vote April 13 but said council was  in favour of keeping the marine shop a functioning part of the town.  For his part, Coles said he is hoping for a  good show of support from the public at that  meeting.  "I think 90 per cent of the people like the  idea of having a working harbour," Coles  said. "It's only a few around me that don't.  But they bought their property knowing it  was a working harbour."  Coles added he has done everything he's  been asked to make his business quieter.

Roxanne Gregory photo  from page 1  In those estimates, Vancouver is not projected to see the  dramatic increases expected in  other areas and may even see a  decline in the geriatric population in eight to ten years.  Babiuk said a broad redistribution of beds is being proposed  among Vancouver's three  teaching hospitals and community hospitals in suburban areas.  Shaughnessy nurse, Jan  Johnstone, asked where the 10  operating rooms currently in use  in Shaughnessy were going to  be relocated. She predicted  longer and longer waits for  surgery because of a reduction  in the number of operating theatres. "Do you want your physician operating at 2 a.m. because  that's the only time he can  schedule it in? she asked.  A member of the Vancouver  police also expressed his con  cern over the closing of an  emergency room. "You can't  just close down an ER. Some  nights I go to all of them and  they're a madhouse. You can't  afford to close one."  Other members of the audience saw the closure as the further unravelling of the social  safety network and the piecemeal destruction of the health  care system,  Linda Moseley, Hospital  Employees Union representative  for St. Mary's said, "Cut waste,  not beds. We want accountability. Is this health care or fiscal  reform?"  Petzold urged Coast residents  to write letters to the ministry of  health urging them to keep  Shaughnessy open and to attend  a rally at the Queen Elizabeth  Theatre on April 4. A local  group planning to attend is  being organized by Peter Darcy.  $39,999  1992 20' ETASCA TOYOTA MOTORHOME $27,900  1990 24' MOTORHOME $29,900  NOrtMinYASSHOSVN  9'6" NORTHERN LITE FULL SIZE  Fiberglass Camper- Shower Model   $12.990   FORD PICK-UP TRUCK F 250 $14,900  Dating abuse identified as teen problem  by Darah Hansen  As a counsellor who has served in high  schools on the Sunshine Coast for the past  six years, Donna Schmirler has heard many  accounts of teen dating victimization.  Schmirler has talked to students ranging  in age from 13 to 19 from Gibsons, Sechelt  and Pender Harbour schools, "and I can certainly verify that people are in situations representing the full continuum."  Dating violence amongst teens includes  some very abusive relationships, where one  partner is actually beaten up or raped, she  said.  In fact, Schmirler said the abuses suffered  by leens in dating situations are not so different than what is happening in the adult  realm. She added: "I can certainly say it  exists here and it's causing a lot of pain for  some people."  Schmirler said though she doesn't keep  statistical records, the frequency of the  occurrences is "at a high enough level to  alarm me." Every year she gets several referrals of this nature and still feels whal she is  hearing is just the "tip of the iceberg.  "...people are just starting to acknowledge  it.  "It's the same as sexual abuse: it's always  been a part of our culture, it's just been hidden and we haven't given people permission  to talk about it until recently."  'It's always been apart of  our culture, it's just  been bidden'  -Donna Schmirler  But talking, she said, can be difficult.  There's a lot of shame associated with  being violated or abused. The victims, mainly young women, don't want to discuss  what's happened lo them. Instead many lake  responsibility for the abusive act, thinking  they should have been able to stop it from  happening.  Some victims feel so badly about themselves they can no longer successfully func  tion at school, with their families, or at work.  "So it does have impact through whole  range of things teenagers are doing," said  Schmirler.  On a few occasions, the victim is led to  suicide.  When teens do seek help, "They're making a choice towards life," she said. "We  pretty quickly clarify who is responsible for  what."  There are no easy answers, said Schmirler, but increased education is one solution.  She said there is a need lo teach empathy-  building between girls and boys, communication skills and assertiveness training. And,  in particular, more programs are needed for  boys, lo give them clear guidelines on what  constitutes inappropriate behaviour: "Things  that are preventative, that's what I see as the  solution."  "And really the whole idea of zero tolerance - don't sweep it under rug, don'l say  you were just kidding or it was a joke.,  everyone in the communily has to say 'No,  we won't tolerate this anymore'."  ���"      NEW     **  CHINA KITCHEN  ?<~^RESTAURANT  "^i     INTRODUCES  V.

Wilson added the degree of  violence in Ihe school is cyclical, dependent on who is attending school during the year and  who is "hanging around."  Presently, he said, violent outbursts at Elphinstone are rare.  Both principals said many of  the violent or criminal acts  being committed by Sunshine  Coast teenagers are not the acts  of students in their schools.  "We have some individuals  in Sechell who aren't in school  now, who are of school or just  beyond school-age, and who  cause a fair amount of trouble,"  said Kenyon.  Because of their potentially  negative influence, these individuals are barred from school  grounds.

Kenyon believes much of it  has to do wilh education -  heightening the awareness of  everyone in school, including  teachers, as lo what constitutes  abuse, then teaching methods of  prevention.  He said having served in six  different school districts in BC,  teachers and administrators on  Ihe Coast are more aware these  kinds of prevention programs  are needed, and subsequently  implemented, at all levels of  adolescent education.  He added the school doesn't  have enough resources to provide all the necessary programs  lo address Ihe whole problem:  "It's going to take a concerted  effort from all Ihe agencies in  the community who work wilh  young adults."  Wilson said education is jusl  one answer. It's also important  to make clear there are immediate consequences to all inappropriate behaviours.  "(Violence) is an on-going  concern but as long as the  school and the community  refuse to allow a problem to  occur, ihere won't be one," he  said.  Wilson said once hard-line  policies against violence in the  schools are allowed to relax, "I  think that represents the thin  edge of the wedge."  "We're fortunate on Coast  that we've stayed away from it  for so long," said Kenyon, "but  we are close to the big city."  Kenyon said the impact of  urban encroachment on the still-  rural Sunshine Coast community could have long-lasting and  negative effects.  "The fear is the rate that we  can legitimately hope to make a  difference may not be fast  enough to keep up with external  trends or pressures affecting Ihe  kids," Kenyon said.  "Having said that, I still  believe we can make a difference....and are."  ��� -T   ��� . UX -~U t~i.-Vj-_  .*a-Aat��VS".**ol. Coast News, March 29,  1993  Highways work  decried, defended  by Stuart Burnside  A Gibsons resident says he's  outraged over the quality of  work being done by the department of highways at the intersection of North and Cemetary  Roads.  Mike Fitzpatrick says highways spent two weeks earlier in  Ihe month leveling out the corner and repaving il in preparation for an expected traffic  increase, only to tear a portion of  il up again last week to put in a  water drainage line.  "This is thousands of dollars  they're wasting," Fitzpatrick  said. "With all the surveyors  they've got and guys they pay to  run around in white trucks... this  sort of thing jusl shouldn't happen. Il's ridiculous."  Mel Tinant, project manager  for the department of highways,  says, however, the new work is  not a result of a mistake by his  department, but more of a  response to complaints from  property owners on one side of  the project.  "We just finished paving it  and put the curbing in when we  found out the drainage was contaminating private property,"  Tinant said. "And the property  owners asked us to do something  about it. We're just putting in a  catch-basin and culvert to drain  the water from private property  on one side of the road over to  the other side of the road."  Tinant said Ihe drainage  problem existed to some degree  before highways set up to level  the corner. "What we're doing  now is some work al the end of  the project," Tinant said. "We're  not finished that project."  Fitzpatrick said that excuse  wasn't good enough and wanted  to know what excuse highways  would use when they "screw up  the bypass."  In the process of installing  the new line the backhoe acci-  dently ripped up a BC Tel cable  servicing Port Mellon and some  of Langdale.  i*^H.     :-..���^^M         1    ^H  ~m  -  ���"  5��** -'�����'���  ���      ���****** *-    ���ttir     ~V~i. ^^B  _t  a*'     '.   .��� *-.\  l?^>Z_��PJ_i_t&_M  a*!*******".^-!  t-m*^-  \_\\  1?H  _u   ^  U   v    ���.  ��� ���  lyjv*  v VV *"  ^_m .  f     Nav"��' ��a> ��������  .$***.

Smart Burnside photo  Wilson remains undecided on leadership  by Jane Seyd  Local MLA Gordon Wilson, still technically leader of the B.C. Liberal party, says  he hasn't yet made up his mind on whether  he'll be running again for the position in  September.  But he did say Friday that he's "definitely  leaning towards running", spurred on rural  support across the province, as well as within his riding.  On Sunday, Wilson was scheduled to  speak to local Liberals at a constituency  meeting in Sechell, where heplanned to discuss a possible leadership bid among other  local issues.  While Liberals within caucus and the  party president have called for Wilson's resignation as leader, Wilson says if he does  decide to run, the party brass will have lo  live wilh the outcome of the convention.  "If the members choose me as leader, I  . 9K Ii sibmIo) I'no'avaw  '/ don't see any indication  ofsupportfor  Gordon Wilson anywhere'  -Norman Huff  will be their leader," he said in a recent interview, "...if not they'll have to find another  party."  In such a scenario, lack of caucus support  could "definitely make things difficult," he  said. But he added, "A lot of those caucus  members were elected on my coat tails."  Locally, party organizer Cy O'Leary says  while some members have been disappointed in Wilson because of connection with his  family, Liberals he knows would slill support a leadership bid by the local MLA.  ... I    ,     ���      ���    ;       '.: ' .  "I believe yes he should (run for leader),"  said O'Leary. "..I have seen none of (the  caucus members) domonstrate leadership  qualities."  But Norman Ruff, a political science professor in Victoria, said outside his home  area, Wilson doesn't stand much of a chance  for a political comeback.  "I don't see any indication of support for  Gordon Wilson anywhere," said Ruff. "...It  looks like his career as leader of the Liberal  party has come to an end."  Ruff said Wilson's political problems  have been the result of a "lone wolf"  approach to running Ihe party, which might  have been a virtue prior to the election but  created resentments within the party afterwards.  Wilson said regardless of his decision  about running for Ihe party leadership, he is  committed to finishing his term as MLA.  Learn How To  Make A Moss  Hanging Basket!  Saturday April I"  .'

He said the fisheries department must say how it intends to  prevent problems like those  which occured last year on the  Fraser River.

On Thursday, it became official.  After weeks as the undeclared frontrunner, Kim Campbell announced what everyone already knew: that she  will be seeking the leadership of the federal Conservative  party and will enter her bid to become the next prime  minister of Canada.  So far, not a great deal is known about Campbell in the  realm of either strongly held personal convictions or the  kinds of public policies she supports - this, of course,  now dutifully pointed out by the same media which in  recent weeks seemed to be leading a charge towards  Campbell's virtual coronation.  For the most part, the woman Most Likely To still  seems best remembered for parts of her anatomy immediately below her head than anything in it, courtesy of a  much-played photograph.  But never mind. If last week's polls are to be believed,  a lot of Canadians aren't much concerned about that, and  seem prepared to vote for Campbell anyway, regardless  of what they might think of her predecessor.  This despite the fact that it was Campbell herself who  once pointed out that "charisma without substance is a  dangerous thing."  Unfortunately, as pointed out by Jeffrey Simpson in  the Globe and Mail recently, voters are so desperately  "hungering for something new, they seem inclined to  grasp at whatever political commodity seems freshest  among those on offer."  Undeniably bright.and with a sharp wit, Campbell has  been touted as a softer, more "compassionate face" of  conservatism by some, ready to take her place among a  new wave of baby boomer Clinton-esque politicians.  Curiously in all this, Campbell's rather strong support  of much-reviled Mulroney-inspired policy moves like the  GST, the Meech Lake accord and multi-billion dollar  purchase of military helicopters goes unmentioned.  It's as though suddenly enamoured with Campbell's  shining qualities, Canadians don't want to believe she  could really be so politically similar to you-know-who.  Another issue which has yet to be explored too deeply  is Campbell's reported feminism, and the politics of gender which inevitably circle the possibility of Canada's  first female prime minister.  Back in the Vander Zalm government of the 1980s,  Campbell made a name for herself by publicly opposing  her party leader's anti-choice stance on abortion.  Many also saw her stands as justice minister on issues  like gun control, and the rights of rape victims as progressive.  Throughout, she has maintained her stance as a "fiscal  conservative." In that, Campbell is hardly original.  The phenomenon of women in high political office  taking a conservative line in this area has already been  established by the likes of Margaret Thatcher.  Whether the political system is such that ambitious  women must conform to get ahead or such that only  women whose ideas jibe with the status quo are allowed a  foot in the door to begin with is another issue.  Given that women often still feel attitudes towards  their gender most squarely in the pocketbook, a feminist  who is also a determined fiscal conservative is an interesting concept.  But if blowing four or five billion dollars on a military  helicopter purchase is a particularly stunning example of  what Campbell means by "fiscal responsibility", we can  only hope there's lots more where that came from to  spend on a national daycare program.  Paetkau's efforts  blessed by Coast  The fundraising for Dr. Eric  Paetkau's humanitarian journey  to Somalia has raised an  astounding $17,777.21 in 33  days. Dr. Paelkau estimated the  value at about double that figure  because of the generosity of the  medical and pharmaceutical  companies and local businesses  that donated or gave him real  deals at cost or less.  There was a tremendous  community response and a few  people deserve special recognition. Harry Karlson, pharmacist,  canvassed every company the  hospital deals with and ordered  and kept track of numerous  drugs for the trip.  Marjorie MacKenzie, head  OR nurse was the big shopper  and organizer. She kept Dr.  Paelkau down-to-earth with her  practicil experience and help. '-..

LINDA MOSELEY,  Chairperson  HEU, St. Mary's  Alliance works  for local causes  , In your March 8 issue of tbe  Coast News under a short article  headlined Victoria Protest  Looms, it was reported that representatives of the Tetrahedron  Alliance would join in the Victoria environmental protest over  Clayoquot Sound.  We would like to make it  clear to the residents of the Sunshine Coast that the Tetrahedron  Alliance's sole activity is to  work to preserve the Tetrahedron Plateau as a wilderness  area. Though individual members are also involved in other  environmental and civic issues  locally, provincially, nationally  and globally, the Alliance itself  has never been used to back  other causes. There were no representatives of the Tetrahedron  Alliance at last week's Victoria  protest  The slow processes of conflict resolution have given rise  to frustration and anger for  many of the stakeholders in the  settlement of BC's wilderness  issues. We must all try to understand the causes of these emotions as well as remember that if  we give way to thoughtless  anger, then the chances of  achieving decisions necessary  for sustaining our environment  and economy will disintegrate  into chaos.

Coastal road  efforts inadequate  I recently travelled the Peninsula Highway after catching the  early morning ferry from  Saltery Bay. While on the ferry  we were warned over the loudspeaker that the roads were icy.  I therefore drove with caution  but still hit some black ice and  went off the road. The roads  were not salted.  I telephoned the ministry of  highways and was referred to  Coastal Roads. The answer to  my question of why no salting  was done was that they are not  on winter hours and therefore do  not have a 24-hour watch on  road conditions. They would not  know of hazardous road conditions unless somebody reported  them.  The travelling public should  be aware of this and should  report hazardous road conditions to the 800 number listed io  the blue pages of the phone  book. Perhaps if somebody had  done this instead of reporting it  to the ferry crew, the three accidents that happened at Trout  Lake last weekend might have  been avoided.  I would like to sincerely  thank all the unknown people  both from Powell River and the  Peninsula who assisted me out  of the van and stayed with me  until the ambulance arrived and  all the people who stopped to  make sure everything was okay.  It is heartwarming to know that  there are a lot of people who  care.  ELAINE STEIGER  Powell River  Modern childcare problems have roots in history  We took a look last week at recent scientific  pronouncements that we had much to leam about  nutrition and childcare from our caveman forebears.  Goodness knows, the issue of childcare has bad  much coverage this Spring with the President of  tbe United States being forced to withdraw from  nomination for Attorney General the names of two  distinguished ladies who had hired illegal aliens to  look after their children while they pursued their  distinguished careers.  The howl of indignation which collectively  rose, particularly over Zoe Baird, indicated that  there was a sore point in the American psyche.  With more and more women having little choice  but to work when they can besides caring for their  families and with little provision for qualified and  responsible childcare, the issue is a hot one for  many American families.  In Canada, too, the inadequacies of the current  childcare provisions are recognized and governments indicate their intentions to do something  about it So far, however, they back off when the  costs are tallied up, claiming national poverty.  Not too long ago I watched on television an  interview with an East Indian family which had  built a very large house on a Richmond lot. It was  the kind of house which has led to neighbourhood  complaints.  musings  john burnside  During the interview it became apparent that  there was an extended family in residence. Three  generations of the same family, nearly 20 people,  half of them children. Tbe camera showed two or  three women preparing tbe evening's meal,  showed the giant living room with seats in a circle  for every member, showed the children of four different, related families at play.  The interviewer was intrigued but somewhat  skeptical that this style of life could be maintained.  Yes, she could see the advantages of mothers never  having to worry about the care of their children  when they were at work or at play. The advantages  were obvious, too, in the shaied labour of housekeeping and there was no denying that all the  members of tbe family interviewed, from the  matriarch and the patriarch to the youngest children, seemed serenely happy with their circum  stances.  But surely, she wondered, after a time the old  ways will die out and the families will revert to the  nuclear family model which is more common in  North America.  In this she betrays faith in the obvious fallacy  that how we do things now in this place must be  the zenith of human achievement. It is arrant nonsense , as tbe rising sociological difficulties and  human suffering should surely be telling us. But  we have been richer thain almost all countries of  the world for a very long time so surely that must  mean that we are smarter.  It was not a desire to improve the family that  led to the move away from tbe extended family  model to the present nuclear family. The move had  its roots in the Industrial Revolution which suddenly demanded cheap labour in the cities at the same  time as mechanization on the land made a rural  population superfluous.  Since tbe early 19th Century we have been on  the move after work and opportunity. We have left  our roots and our families because tbe industrial  giants which shape our lives nude it more attractive for us in the short term to do so.  Now the industrial giants are moving their  operations out of the country, as ever in search of  cheaper and available labour. They leave us without jobs and in splintered family settings where the  care and feeding of children is a major undertaking  without support resources, emotional, spiritual or  financial.  That is, I submit, a fair thumbnail sketch of  where we are and does much to explain the rising  tide of broken marriages, uncared for children, and  the rising rates of crime among society's wounded.  All this the world knows well, it is the stuff of  our daily news. But tbe interviewer confronted  with an alternative family arrangement in Richmond could not believe that they, too, would not  succumb to the inevitable, as she saw it, and begin  to do things the North American way.  It is ironic that the issue of childcare should  become a political hot potato early in the administration of Bill Clinton and among his supporters.  His wife is nationally recognized as a leader in  education and childcare and this activist president  sees such matters as one of government's primary  mandates.  It seems to me that the reason for government  in the first instance has always been to protect the  people against those robber barons nude powerful  by their wealth and dangerous by their hunger for  more.  Whether we look to tbe caveman or the extended families of older cultures, it is surely apparent  dun we stand in need of good models to emulate  or leam from.

A new age magazine  ^^S^H  At a time when glossy magazines are being demised right  and left, there is a new one that  has come out; at least a first  issue has come out. It is called  'Wired' and it is very glossy and  mod as all getout. At first, due  to my odd vision these days and  the almost hectic artwork (electric reds on electric blues, etc.) I  thought it was 'Mired' and  leafed through first expecting it  to be about economics, but it's  Wired alright and perhaps about  as wired as it can be.  It is all about the sweeping  onrush of the digital revolution  and the new age, as it is now  and as it is developing. Young  then, avante-garde - though they  might possibly scoff at the term.  Not too technological for even  me to understand. They seem  primarily to want to make clear  that this is a genuine universal  cultural revolution, and are sure  it is more than just a cult.  Whether it is, as one writer says,  the greatest advance since the  discovery of fire remains to be  seen.  About the magazine then,  first visually.  Visually it is as if the graphics boys had been at last allowed  to run absolutely riot. There is  hardly a page (well the ads  come clear, of course) which is  not of many colours, many intricate (but unhelpful) designs  behind the script, itself in many  colours, many different types. It  is probably a Master demonstration of what you can do with  computer graphics and visually  it's quite stimulating. I hope the  Globe and Mail doesn't take it  up though.  The texts too are often not  allowed to run along on the page  in the way that has been developed through quite a long time  now as the best way to pass a  message in print. Bits of stories  that you know are needed will  be missing, and must be hunted  up in little boxes or balloons,  elsewhere. Paragraphs may  sprawl in different types over  two pages. Sentences even may  start in an orange balloon on one  page and end in green on a purple one at the bottom of the  next.  For one who nowadays  doesn't read with ease much  beyond a large print edition of  Peter Rabbit, this could be a  challenge. It seemed, however,  possibly a genuine voice from  the new age.  On leafing through, 1 came  upon a clear bit and read, quite  out of context: '...making a verbal structure - no, no, no.'  This was tossing the whole  thing right into my personal  teeth. I got our brightest light  over my shoulder, lay down, and  persevered...  In a nutshell  It is the only magazine, certainly the only glossy I know, to  have a credit on its masthead  (conventionally printed) for  'Patron Saint.' This turns out (of  course) to be Marshall  McLuhan, and what McLuhan  would have though l about that I  can't imagine. 'The medium is  the message', though, would  certainly seem an appropriate  motto for this paper.  On the other hand when you  come to the editor's introductory statement (produced on two  pages as a series of phrases  rather than any dull old editorial) we understand him to be asking for more 'meaning', or more  message than medium. The  Patron Saint for one would certainly have approved this at  least. The trouble is that this  search for meaning seems to be  more something felt than something actively pursued. There  was little to my mind, or to my  eyes, of any new philosophy for  Ihis new age.  But the word is, continuous-  stuart nutter  ly, lhat everything is changing,  'every thought, every action,  every institution'...'formerly  taken for granted.'  This would seem not to leave  us much of a place to stand,  until you reflect that the people  who take history for granted are  the people who have not read  much of it. Maybe if and when  they do these changes may not  be all that drastic.  One undeniably great thing is  that whole books will soon be  summoned up from Ihe world's  -great libraries to the kitchen  table on 'anyone's computer'  '���(much, much faster'n you can  read 'em).  The question is whether people will now read these books or  just pick about with quotations.  The best image in "Wired'  showed 'fortresses of knowledge' being inundated by the  'ocean of information'. Care  will have to be taken, I would  think, not to get mired in the  marshes around the ocean of  information.

GAY HAHN  TERRY OWEN  BC Amateur Hockey Assn.  Fisherman puzzled  over comments  I am a little puzzled by Mr.  Joe's letter about fishermen.  It is true we spend almost all  our money in town - if that  means Gibsons, Sechelt or Pender Harbour. If it means Vancouver there is an error. I have  had my own boat since 1949. In  197S I took my boat to a Vancouver shipyard. All other years  1 do all repairs and maintenance  here on the Coast.  I also shop locally if I can. I  have never gone to Bellingham  to sell fish nor to buy. groceries,  11 also do not even know where  Costco is  ....:,.  I know the Gibsons, Sechelt  and Pender Harbour repair facilities, which even include a propeller repair shop capable of  doing a 48 inch propeller at a  reasonable price!  In the early 70s when fishing  was good I stopped drawing  UIC as I did not need it. Then in  the 80s I found a fisherman  must have 20 weeks to qualify  for it if you haven't been getting  it. So many fishermen will not  be getting UIC.  I even buy my trucks locally  and have them converted to  propane here too.  BILLY GRIFFITH  Pender Harbour  Arena highlighted  by tournament  The Sunshine Coast Minor  Hockey Association would like  to thank all those who took part  in the recent Midget AA Provincial Championships.  The number of people who  gave their time and helped  financially are too numerous to  mention.  These people know who they  are an without them this event  would not have been the success,  it was.  These people were not all  hockey people and to the ones  who came because they felt they  could be of some help, we thank  you.  To the hundreds of fans who  came to see some very talented  athletes perform, your cheers  made their work much more  enjoyable; to the hockey players  who performed so well and handled themselves with respect on  and off the ice.  This event proves to us that  the arena is a very important  part of the community and now  is the time to look at ways the  facility can be put to good use.  There were between 4000 and  5000 people through the doors  of the arena in the week that this  championship was held. An  event of this magnitude may  only happen once every 10 or 12  years but it has proven that we  have a facility that we must  maintain and improve upon.  D.

Increasingly, "Banff is now being  described as what not to do in a park," says  George Smith, a Gibsons resident ami executive director of conservation for Ihe society.  Smith says the example of whal's happening in Banff has important warnings  about land use decisions in other parks, both  national and provincial. In the meantime, the  society is calling for a stop to further devel  opment through an "ugly postcard campaign" in which a picture of construction  within the park to be sent by supporters to  Jean Charest, federal minister environment.  In the past 12 years, over $500,000 worth  of development within Banff has threatened  the ecology of Banff, says Smith: "All of  that time they've known it's impinging on  the environment." Smith says in a national  park, ecology has to come first: "All other  considerations are secondary. We're hoping  lo prod the federal government into maintaining ils parks...," he says, "most people in  Canada assume that's what they're doing."  These days, certain tourists avoid Banff  because of its development, says Smith. Of  those who do go, "a lol of them are going to  shop," says Smith," But what is a park for?  It's a question of cumulative effects and  once again it's gotten out of control."  More locally, Smith says in the provincial  park system, Cypress on the North Shore is  another good example of a park where ecology is being threatened by development.  In 1992, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society won a court decision which had  challenged allowing logging in Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta.

Hi  ".iV'l 'Fr. ���   .  im cm* life  That statement was made by  Attorney General Colin Gabelmann Thursday in an address to  250 senior crown counsel,  police, corrections staff and  other ministry officials attending  a two-day conference devoted to  ending violence against women.  Gabelmann stressed the criminal nature of violence against  women, urging conference participants to rigorously enforce  the revised ministry policy on  violence against women in relationships.  The minisry of attorney general recently revised its policy  on violence against women,  which directs BC's justice system to emphasize the criminality  of violence within relationships  and take necessary steps to  ensure Ihe protection of women  and children who may be at risk.  The policy calls for arrest and  rigorous prosecution of offences  against women in relationships  and stresses Ihe responsibility of  police and crown counsel - not  the victim - to lay and pursue  criminal charges.  "The safety and protection of  women must be a priority," said  Women's Equality Minister  Penny Priddy in the statement.  "This policy is an important part  of this government's action to  stop violence against women."  Ih the past year, under the  leadership of the Ministry of  Women's Equality, the BC government has committed $10 million to the 'Stopping the Violence' initiative, a coordinated  program to make sure critical  services are in place for women  who have been victims of violence and lo set up programs to  stop the violence.  Part of that funding assisted  the Ministry of Attorney General to implement the new violence against women in relationships policy and to conduct the  two-day conference.  Gabelmann praised the work  of police, communily agencies,  groups who work with victims  of violence, women's organizations and other participants who  look part in the extensive consultations leading up to the  revised ministry policy.

NATIONAL REAL ESTATE SERVICE  GIBSONS REALTY LTD. 686-2277  'Cougar Ladies' rocked by rash of thefts  I This Information Series Presented by:  I    BONNIEBROOK INDUSTRIES LTD.  by Keith Thirkell  "I've been plying these waters since 1926  and I have always trusted people here, but  now I'm not so sure."  These are the words of Bergilot Solberg,  better known as one half of the "cougar  ladies" - a title she shares with her sister,  Minnie Solberg.  A rash of thefts from the little molor boal  the sisters normally tie up in Porpoise Bay  has left Ihe elderly pioneers more than a little  ticked off. Solberg said the largest theft  occurred on March 12th after dark: "They  stole all the groceries we just bought and  some gasoline and other stuff, about $200  worth in all."  golden lifelines  Both Solbergs said the thefts are a new  phenomenon which started last year when a  jerry can of gas was lifted from their unattended craft.  'The the/Is are a new  phenomenon which started  last year'  "Bergy", as Bergilot is known to many,  now lives about ten miles up Sechelt Inlet  while Minnie still braves the wilds of Deserted Bay in Jervis Inlet next to an old logging  camp.  Hunting, trapping and generally liv  ing by their wits have kept them alive over  the years,  Bergilot and Minnie Solberg have called  Sechelt and Jervis inlets home ever since  they moved from Norway when they were  children.  It's also not unusual to see them both  swinging huge duffel bags over their shoulders or full five gallon jerry cans under Iheir  arms as they load up supplies for another  few days: just another shopping trip via the  wind tunnel known as Jervis Inlet.  "I don't know what kind of miserable  creature would swipe stuff from a couple of  folks like us but I'm getting tired of it. We  don't have a lot of money," Solberg said.  by Joyce Ostry  The activity calendar shows  that April promises to be a busy  month.  .

This  popular program which runs  from October to May, offers  support for parents of children  up to five years old. It gives  parents a chance to meet others, join in play activities with  iheir children, and have access  lo information on child development and parenting.  Coordinator Therese Egan  said last week this year has  seen a big increase in the number of families attending.  "A tremendous number of  newcomers to the Coast find  their way lo the Drop-In very  soon after their arrival here,"  F.gan said. "Il's a wonderful  way to gel to know the community, for Iheir kids and for  themselves. This trend has been  very prominent Ihis year."  New Session at Gibsons  The Gibsons program,  which has been offered at the  Gibsons Uniled Church on  Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays has been expanded lo  include a fourth session on  Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to  11:30 am. "By 10 am we had  more than 40 children and il  was getting overcrowded,"  Thcresc explained. "Wc have  made a limit of 30 children per  session to maintain the quality  of the program. Parents who  were turned away before will  now be able to participate."  Olher sessions are offered  from 9:30 to 11:30 at St.  Hilda's, Sechelt on Tuesdays  and al Wilson Creek Community Hall on Thursdays. There  is a small daily attendance fee.  Information Services  Parents arc eager to gel  information about parenting  issues and Egan has been working to make as many resources  available to parents as possible.  "We have applied for funds  to develop a small resource  library for parents. This will  not duplicate services offered  by other libraries. It will be  very specific and cover the day ���  to day issues lhal parents  have," said Egan. "This will be  practical information - parents  won't have to read long volumes lo gel whal Ihey need."  As well as the library, a discussion group for parents will  shortly begin. A series of five  sessions for parents interested  in sharing (heir experiences  will be moderated by Egan.  "This will give parents a  chance to laik about issues, to  help one another. Wc will  focus on problem solving.  We're not going lo "teach" parenting."  Parent-Tot Drop-In is funded by a small grant from Ihe  ministry of social services,  from the daily attendance fees  and from community fundraising.  Thank You  Therese Egan has been  seeking financial support in the  community this pasl year and  would like lo thank the following businesses for jointly providing $1,000 lo help the program: Gibsons Realty, SuperValu, Gibsons Building Supplies, Clayton Heritage Market  and the Sunshine Coasl Credit  Union.  "This kind of support is very  important," Egan said. "The  program is growing all the time  and our small grant does not  allow us lo replace or enhance  our equipment. Community  support helps us grow lo meel  ihe new demands for Ihe program."  For further information call  Community Services at 885-  5881, Monday to Friday, 9 am  lo 4 pm.

We were gathering seaweed  there recently after the big  rains. The sun was out, the sea  was shining and eagles and  gulls screamed as they circled  and landed at the mouth of  Chapman Creek.  Children, finally let loose  after days of confinement while  it rained, ran and skipped along  the edges of the water. II was  beautiful lo see and Ihe air was  so fresh after the rain, that we  congratulated ourselves once  again for having the good sense  to live here. And then the  garbage.  It is dumped by humans who  are obviously uncaring beyond  the perimeters of their narrow  little lives and strewn by birds  who have come to learn whal  black and green plastic bags are  likely to contain. It is frustrating to see when most of us care  about our surroundings and preserving the beauty of Ihe coastline.  A reminder to all: watch for  broken glass and jagged tin can  edges at beaches and parks.  Bring along a garbage bag for  your own needs and to pick up  any trash you encounter.  Craft sale  The Save The Children Fund  of BC, Sunshine Coast branch,  will be holding its spring crafts  sale on Thursday and Friday,  April I and 2 at the Royal Bank  end of Trail Bay Mall.

Have you noticed the change  in the BC Ferry tuck shop? The  news racks at the front of the  ' shop feature BC books ad  authors instead of the usual  paperback rows of best sellers.  This new feature has gathered a  lot of favourable comment and  is a terrific way to promote BC  and its writers.  The timing is perfect with  the tourist season just beginning.  ���.a-^-.rf.V>'.*..  .-** ���*;'.'-,>*���-�����J   "  V-    ='��**V W  I Jaa<-  *_,.-.   .;*..**-.�� community  Coast News, March 29, 1993  tttmOimtkn ^./vIaC  Children's Hospital  11  Gibsons volunteer firemen  practice procedure  Wednesday on a house  scheduled for demolition as a  training burn.  Kyla McDonald photo  It's finally here!  The  Mcqa-Dollar  BLOWOUT  SALE  <oy  george In glbaons  by George Cooper  Allan S. 'Stan' Trueman was honoured at  a special gathering Feb. 28 at the Dunsmuir  House in Sidney by his family and friends.  The next day, March 1, was the day Stan  turned 90. About 40 people attended the  birthday party arranged by his sons Cedric  and Elliott with the assistance of daughters-  in-law Judy and Katherine.  Stan Trueman came to Gibsons in 1930 to  teach at the Howe Sound High School, a  building then on the present site of Gibsons  Elementary, but demolished in 1954. In 1952  Stan moved to the new Elphinstone Secondary School where he was principal until  1955, and continued to teach there unlil his  retirement in the late 60s.  A resident of Victoria for the past decade  or so, Stan has been busy in his retirement  with his garden plot, and with both square  and Scottish country dancing. Now he regularly attends an exercise class, has begun  studying Spanish and continues his singing  in a seniors choir.  Happy birthday from Gibsons, Stan.  Curling  Ah, that winter game, curling. When the  knees refuse to lift the body up from the  hack, the time has come to just watch others.  And good watching there was a couple of  weeks ago in the national men's championships from Ottawa. Some use at last from  that sports channel. Aside from the death  cries of the skips urging on the sweepers, the  many-angled camera shots and the unhurried  pace of the game made for satisfying viewing for us has-beens.  Another view of the game from Kerry  Banks writing in the Georgia Strait decries  the tortoise-like pace of the game and the  frantic sweepers attacking the sliding rocks  "like gerbils on amphetamines."  He quotes a former ski champion who has  said that with curling accepted in the 1992  Olympics, "can bowling, darts and ballroom  dancing be far behind?" The game, says  Banks would better serve as it once did in  1890, as a cure for insanity.  Elphie scheduling  creates headaches  by Kyla McDonald  A battle is raging within the  walls of Elphinstone Secondary  School. The students are upset,  the teachers are upset and no  one really seems to have a firm  grasp on why. The problem at  the base of all this unrest is next  year's schedule change; to be on  the semester system or not.  Currently at Elphinstone the  senior grades are on the  semester system while the rest  of the school remains full year.  The students schedule revolves  around an eight-block rotation.  Many reasons have combined to  make changes in this system  necessary including a new  provincial government policy  called Regulation 8 which states  that all students must have an  extra 45 minutes of class time a  week. These extra minutes will  result in classes that are 62 minutes long instead of 60.  Another reason for the  schedule adjustment is a clause  in the teachers' contract which  states that each teacher cannot  teach more than 22 hours and 15  minutes a week or be available  for more than 5 hours and 30  minutes a day. It also says that  all teachers must have a full-  year preparation block.  It is this last regulation which  causes the most problems with  the semester system, because  teachers must teach a maximum  of six semester classes as well  as have at least one junior class  (grade 8,9,10) in order to have a  full-year preparation block.  No final decisions about any  changes have yet been made,  however. The school is still trying to determine the best course  of action.  "There will be a survey for  all grade 11 students in the middle of next week, and 1 guarantee what they say will count."  says Mr. Stoochnoff after hearing the students' concerns.  He added, however, there are  already changes in the works for  next year, most likely consisting  of a 20-block rotation instead of  the current 8-block system. The  students will still take a maximum of eight classes a year but  each class will consist of either  two or three blocks.  This 20-block system works  with either the semester system  or the yearly program, but if the  senior grades remain on the  semester system, some of the  classes with low enrollment  may be cancelled, or extra  teaching time would be required.  Stoochnoff says all the systems work, but with the teachers' contract it would be easier  to have the yearly system.

To be more specific, he's  chiseling an artistic and intricate  tribute to fishing life on a pair of  roughly 7 foot by 7 fool yellow  cedar doors.  The man who commissioned  the work wishes to remain  anonymous but when the doors  are finished ihey will serve'a  practical function in a Roberts  Creek home.  "This is aboul the biggest  thing of Ihis kind I've done,"  Stevens said while working on  Ihe projecl last week. "It's a real  challenge."  The main figure in Stevens'  door carving is a bearded and  sou'weslered man, reminiscent  of the famous Yukon gold pan-  ner.  The net he is hauling in is a  wonder of detail. Serving as  background to the work, a sailboat dominates the scene.  "I sketched up the basic  idea," Stevens says, "Then (a  friend of the fellow who commissioned it) made some  changes and added a few  delails."  The woik is taking shape on  a makeshift sawhorse work  bench that dominates most of  Stevens' small shop. Cedar  shavings and chips cover the  floor, giving the air a slightly  Christmasy smell.  On a small work bench lining  one wall lie about 30 carving  knives, arrayed like ilems in a  hospital operating room or a  museum. In the hands of  Stevens, however, each blade  performs a specialised function,  and each has played a role in Ihe  creation of the yellow cedar  doors.  "The net was the hardest  pari," Stevens says, pausing and  looking up from from his  labours. "I've never done anything like il and really had no  idea how long it would take."  So far he says he's spent  about 100 hours on the projecl  and expects to spend al least 30  more.  Stevens did note, however,  that the job has been made much  easier by the wood he is working wilh: "Yellow Cedar is really great to carve.  "Il's expensive and can be  hard to gel but il's really great to  carve ... Imagine carving a block  of frozen butter. That's what il's  like."  And' another blessing of the  job is that he doesn't have to  hang the doors when finished.  "Somebody else will have to  handle that I'm just being paid  to carve."  I  ��� _  i. ���: rax ���.... Coast News, March 29, 1993  15  The cast of Romeo and Juliet  alter Wednesday's  performance at Elphinstone  Secondary.

Call 886-2622  or 885-3930  Cast of Romeo and Juliet enthralls  student audience at Elphinstone  by Kyla McDonald  Elphinstone Secondary was honoured by a wonderful presentation of Romeo and Juliet put on by  the Argyle Drama Association, last Wednesday.  The participants in this event did a beautiful job  of musically bringing one of Shakespeare's  tragedies to life. The music was composed and performed by the students with professional confidence.  The cast of this moving production was polished  and convincing. The actors became one with their  characters and the audience seemed enthralled. "It  a was a great production, I really enjoyed it," said  on the arts beat  grade 12 student Hanna Henderson.  Romeo (Geoff Donald) and Juliet (Erin Oei)  were well cast and had terrific on-stage chemistry.  Benvolio (Phil Hunter) also played his role with  ease and enthusiasm. Friar Lawrence's (Craig Gal-  braith) voice and Juliet's father's (Chris Dircks)  acting also shone out above this already brilliant  cast.  This production was wonderfully entertaining  and a lot of effort, skill and imagination were obviously involved. The costumes and sets were as  good as the acting, and all those involved in this  production should be proud.  "Turtle Island Prints" by Lisa  Blackwell and "Past Comforts"  by the Sunshine Coast Quitters  Guild start at Ihe Arts Centre  this Wednesday March 31 and  will be shown until April 25.  "Turtle Island" is the ancient  name for North America used by  some Indian peoples from  whose cultures Lisa Blackwell  draws much of her inspiration.  Lisa's hand-built smoke-fired  pottery explores the methods  and styles of southwest Indian  pottery in some respects, but  avoids applied surface decoration in favour of the highly burnished surface.  This becomes so receptive to  Ihe variations in kiln conditions  during firing that flame partis  and temperature variations are  recorded on the vessels as subtly  graded flushes and blends  between carbon black, charcoal  black, velvety grays and into lhe  natural clay colours of reds,  oranges, pinks and whites.  Lisa Blackwell will be at a  reception on Saturday, April 3 at  2 pm for everyone interested in  her work. There will be refreshments served and everyone is  welcome.  Quilt show  "Past Comforts" is an antique  quilt show assembled by the  Sunshine Coast Quillers Guild  from the BC Heritage Quilt Reject registration day held at the  Arts Centre last May. All of the  quilts displayed are locally  owned bul were made in a variety of places from New York to  Gibsons.  They vary from family treasures handed down for generations to lucky finds in a thrift  shop.  Quillers have been kept busy  on the Coast for Ihe last several  months - besides Ihe "Past Comforts" show Ihere will be a display of new work by guild members al Rockwood.  There will be a closing reception for "Past Comforts" on  April 25. The centre will be  open for viewers of these two  shows Wednesday to Saturday,  11 am lo 4 pm and Sunday from  1 to 4 pm.  Classic Mystery  On Wednesday, March 29 at  8 pm the Arts Centre Spring  Series of Film Classics draws to  a close wilh The Third Man, one  of the most entertaining of great  films.  This film was directed by  Carol Reed in 1949 and scripted  by Graham Greene, but dominated by Ihe considerable presence of Orson Welles. Joseph  Cotton stars as Holly Martins, a  naive American writer of pulp  fiction who arrives in ravaged  post-war Vienna to meet his old  friend Harry Lime (Orson  Welles) only to be told that  Lime has been killed in a traffic  accident.  Martins sets out to investigate  and soon discovers more than he  had bargained for... Anton  Karas' seemingly incongruous  zither score provides an inspired  counterpoint to Greene's  baroque suspense tale, while  Welles' portrayal of Lime is a  brilliant study in corruption.  In fact, Welles' pivotal performance, his pairing with frequent collaborator Joseph Cotton, the fact that he wrote much  of his dialogue, and the extravagant, expressionist visual style  have led to much debate about  the film's "authorship" ...this is  a decidedly Wellesian work  indeed.  The Third Man won the  Palm D'or at Cannes, earned  Robert Kasker an Oscar for his  magnificent cinematography and  was the third successive Carol  Reed picture to win the British  Academy Award for Best Film.  Admission is $5.50 at Ihe  door.  Guzak at the arts centre  Grela Guzek will be the guest  artist at the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre at Trail and Medusa  Street Tuesday April 6. Guzek  will be bringing a selection of  her art for viewing between 2  pm and 6 pm. Currently she has  been working with oil pastels,  watercolours, illustrating a book,  The Ferryboat Ride, and successfully teaching classes lo  both adults and children on Six  Fun Ways With Colour.  Her designer T-shirts will be  available.  Plan to meet with this busy  artist, have coffee and maybe  buy or renl some of her paintings and prints.

Buchan says that  both Gibsons and Sechelt are  seeing a turnaround in the economy and a lot of it may be due  to the Port Mellon expansion.  Congratulations to Sechelt  elementary school teacher Rod  Lizee who won $91,540 in last  week's big 649 Draw when he  picked five out of six numbers  and the bonus number.  10YE/VRSAGO  About 60 people met in the  library of the Roberts Creek  school last Tuesday to form the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee. They ranged in age from  early 20s to mid-70s.  Representatives of Inter-city  Gas Corporation made a presentation at last week's meeting  of Ihe SCRD to rebut charges  previously made that IGC's  propane tanks at Roberts Creek  are unsafe.  Speaking on behalf of Ihe  company, vice-president Bullen  told the board that the company  is so convinced that the present  site is safe, il is willing to spend  $50,000 to beautify and landscape the area and allow public  access to a pier at the seaward  aid for. tourists and wharf fishermen.  15 YMHS AGO  The ferry service experienced some difficulties in the  first major holiday weekend of  Ihe year. An overflow situation  was reported on the firsl ferry  out of Horseshoe Bay on Friday  morning but the major difficulty was experienced by those  travellers going to Powell  River.  20 YEARS AGO  The provincial government  has purchased Ihe town of  Ocean Falls for $1 million and  will reactivate the newsprint  mill as soon as possible.  When discussing a subdivision bylaw at Sechelt council  last week, the village clerk  observed "soon land will cost  more than the home to be built  on it."  25 YEARS AGO  Gibsons council proclaimed  nexl week as cleanup and paint-  up week. Under the signature of  Fred Feeney, the proclamation  asks residents of the village to  clear unsightly objects from  their property and to clean up  and paint up generally.  30 YEARS AGO  Kenny Pennysaver announces "We have a new name  for our store: Ken's Lucky Dollar Store. We invite you lo participate in our three day opening sale."  35 YEARS AGO  A flowery promenade winding around Sechelt's waterfront  is in future plans of the village  commission, chairman Chris-  line Johnstone said in a recent  interview. The commission is  unanimous in its decision to  make the village a beauty spot  on the highway for both tourists  and those who live here.  40 YEARS AGO  Celia Flumerfelt then editor  in chief of the Elphinstone student newspaper, started her editorial this week: "There are  more and more young men and  women graduating from high  schools every year and more  and more young people in our  juvenile courts. In the face of  Ihis, we wonder whal is the  matter with our educational system. Could it be we are putting  too much stress on non-essentials, instead of fitting the  young people for positions they  will eventually take?

Joel Johnstone photo  bridge comer  by Rudy Notzl  Sunshine Coast Bridge Club winners:  March 15 Barrie Hardie with Shirley Huggins in Gibsons; Marilynn Lyons with John Paterson in Sechelt  March 17 Jean Coyle with Fay McCarthy  March 18 Doris Housley with Pat Ashby  Defensive Play  Defenders should go through a similar planning process as the declarer, only their objective is to defeat the  contract. You estimate by seeing your own cards how  close you are lo the objective. The picture becomes a little clearer when the dummy hand appears. We focus on  possible winners against bolh suit and no-trump contracts,  giving us the information as to how many more tricks we  need to establish lo defeat the contract.  Always take the time to make a plan, even before mak  ing the opening lead, thus preventing blindly following  some advice you might have learned in the pasl. Usually  you will need partner's help to establish winners and  information will become apparent as the hand is played as  to possible sources of extra tricks. You may have lo alter  your initial plan as the hand unfolds.  Should you have nothing else to fall back on, there are  a couple of guidelines that may improve the chance of  success:  "Third hand plays high" (Bul only as high as necessary)  "Second hand plays low" - but if covering an honor  promotes a winner for your side - then "cover an honor  with an honor."
