 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings ,  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  February 15,1993 Volume 47 Issue 7  High demand sends lumber prices booming  by Jane Seyd  When a tree falls in lhe woods these  days, it's fetching a higher price on the  market.  Prices for lumber logs have been  soaring recently, with figures up by 30  per cent in the last six months, according to some estimates.  Prices have jumped especially  sharply since December.  While some price increase is normal  for Ihis lime of year as log inventories  dwindle, most people agree this year's  values are higher than usual.  Possible reasons include everything  from early snowfall in logging opera-  lions, a general lack of timber due to  Provincial  bargaining  moves irk  teachers  by Diirali Hansen  The discussion of a proposal  for more effective teacher/school  board relations in the BC public  education system sparked some  reaction from Ihe local teacher's  union representative al Tuesday's school board meeting.  The proposal is the result of  discussions carried on by the  employee relations committee of  the BC School Trustee Association and provides an outline of a  three-tiered bargaining system  involving Ihe Ministry of Education, school boards and teachers.  Under Ihe proposal, teachers  would bargain future contracts al  the provincial level.  "It's a little frightening," said  Sunsliine Coasl Teachers Association president Sharon Wood,  urging the board to think carefully before involving themselves in such an action.  Wood said she felt the action  would pul a division in cordial  relationship enjoyed by the  board and the union on the Sunshine Coast. "I have a feeling  that people think the teachers  look the school boards to the  laundry in bargaining over the  first few years," Wood said.  "But I don't think that's true,"  Wood said that while the  SCTA did consult heavily with  the BCTF on union language for  the first two contracts, Ihis year  they were making their own  decisions, keeping them unique  to district needs.  She said her concern is that at  a provincial bargaining table  ihose local concerns will be lost.  School board chair Pat Stuart  clarified the board's decision in  an interview Thursday, saying  her impressions were lhal the  board has not been supportive of  provincial bargaining in the past.  "This is just another way of  looking al Ihings," she said of  Ihe proposal.  Stuart added that a final decision has not been made on  provincial bargaining and may  be just one of several recommendations to be brought before  Ihe Corblli commission for consideration.  Despite the controversy,  SCTA members formally ratified a two-year teacher's contract Thursday night.  Wood said while they didn't  gel all that they were asking for,  they got "enough" to satisfy the  majority of ihe membership.  In lhe contract, the teacher's  bargained a two per cent salary  increase effective January 1993  and another two per cent  increase in July I993, Ihey also  gained new language around  issues "f posting and filling  which, Wood said, was "very  important to have happen."  They did not reach 'an agreement Ihis round on securing  seniority lor temporary leachers.  "We did gel a written  promise Ihey would consider  lliciri firsl," Wood said, "bul il's  noi llie same."  Price of logs climbs 30 per cent in six months  forestry cutbacks, customers worried  about potential shortages and an expected boom to housing starts in both the  Uniled Stales and Europe.  For the forest industry on the Coast,  higher prices are good news for logging  operations selling the wood, bul bad  news for sawmills buying on the open  log market.  "It's all gone up," says Ron Casey,  foreman for local FAB Logging, which  sells logs to Canadian Pacific Forest  Products buying station in Ladysmith.  Even people with privale acreage to  clear can stand to make between $2,000  and $3,000 on a good load of fir right  now, says Casey.  Mike Bell, local manager of International Forest Products, agrees that "log  prices arc definitely very strong right  now."  Significant price increases have  occurred across all species and grades  of lumber wood, says Bell. The one  exception is pulp wood, for which  prices are still low because of less  demand from the mills.  According to Ministry of Forests figures, prices for an average cubic metre  of cedar rose from $71.18 to $90.97  between July and November 1992 on  the Vancouver log market, while fir  increased from $79.91 to $82.69 and  cypress went from $116.31 to $159.94.  Figures for hemlock were down for that  time period from $50.19 lo $49.91.  But according to Bell, the average  price for hemlock has risen again by  $10 a cubic metre since December.  Bell says higher prices have been  caused by an increase in demand from  American suppliers, who had renewed  confidence in the economy following  the U.S. election. European and Pacific  Rim orders are also up, wilh an anticipated spurt in building this summer,  while export of lumber from Russia  hasn't taken off as anticipated.  These days, Japanese buyers are  mainly interested in hemlock and  cypress, he says.  Some customers are also nervous  about supply, says Bell, following  forestry harvest cutbacks in the Sunshine Coast and other areas.  turn to page 2  Band set to vote on  multi-million-dollar  marina project  Business is looking good for log producers like Inlerfor's Jackson (Sechelt Division) Drysort as BC's  lumber prices continue to climb. Joel Johnstone photo  by Jane Seyd  A   A multi-million dollar mari-  iha complex planned by the  ' Sechelt Indian Band for the former site of the Jackson Brothers  log sort in Wilson Creek is now  in its final stages of discussion.  The plan was presented to  band  members  Wednesday  night and will likely  be formally released    ������  by the band council  this week.  The marina proposal, in the planning stages for years  by the band, includes  a large boat moorage, a condominium  development, tourist  accommodation, ~~~""  boat ways and lifts  and other amenities.  The development is planned  as a joint enterprise between the  Sechelt and Panorama Construction, owned by Art McGinnis of Gibsons.  The band owns 25 acres of  land at the Wilson Creek site  and has had an active foreshore  lease since 1984.  "It'll be a major slopping-off  place," says Calvin Craigan, a  band member who's been  involved in the marina plan dating back many years. "It's a  beautiful design; well thought-  out."  An existing breakwater, and  good results from soils and  engineering tests made the site a  natural choice, says Craigan.  Geographically, it should also  appeal to boaters coming up  from Juan de Fuca Strait into  Georgia Strait who don't want  to stay in Vancouver.  According to Ihe current  plan, 12 feet of gravel will be  'The plan must  be approved  by tbe band  membership tn  a referendum'  marina site, says Craigan. The  project will also likely be completed in phases.  Of the partnership with  Panorama, says Craigan: "They  see it as profitable and worthwhile to get involved.  "They share the risk and they  go out and promote the project.  They have experi-       ence in that."  Financial details  have not been  rleased publicly by  the band. But according to band  member Wesley Jeffries, who attended  Wednesday's meeting, the project is  ���~~~ expected to cost $19  million, with much  of the capital financed through  Panorama, while the band provides the land.  Commenting from Gibsons,  McGinnis said the project is  still in the "formulalive stage,"  but added he has agreed with  the band not to discuss details.  The plan must also be  approved by the band membership in a referendum.  An application for secondary  sewage treatment and disposal  for marina facilities has recently  been received from the band by  waste management.  While not opposing the project, neighbours in Wilson  Creek have already expressed  some concerns about sewage  disposal and nearby wetlands  used as a habitat by wildlife.  "I want to know what they  plan on doing and how they  plan on doing it," said Gwen  Abram, who lives on nearby  property leased from the  Sechelt. "I don'l think that's too  dredged from the bottom of the      much to a  Mediated ferry contract negotiations resume  by Sluart Burnside  The BC Ferry and Marine  Workers Union (BCFMU) went  back into mediated negotiations  wilh the BC ferry Corporation  Friday in an attempt to work out  the ongoing contract dispute.  BCFMU president Brett  Joyce said Thursday that Industrial Relations Council mediator  Brian Foley had called the Iwo  sides back to the table after the  union's execulive board met  Wednesday to select a new  "paired-down" bargaining committee.  "The executive chose a new,  smaller group of representatives," Joyce said, "and now  we're going to have lo see what  Mr. Foley has lo say."  The previous committee recommended acceptance of a contract offered by Foley al Ihe end  January, bul when the vole was  taken, union members voted Ihe  offer down by 66 per cenl.  "I can't give the specific reasons why Ihey voted against il"  Joyce said, "because Ihey arc  issues we slill need lo be  addressed (at the bargaining  table)."  Joyce, Foley and spokesmen  for the BC Ferry Corporation  have all expressed optimism a  contract will be ratified in Ihe  near future, bul in Ihe meantime,  members of tlte union remain in  a legal strike position unlil Ihe  end of Ihe month. If al that lime  Ihey lake and accept another  sirike vole, Ihey will be in legal  sirike position for another 90  days.  The BCFMU has been without a contract since Oct. 31,  when negotiations first broke  down.

Bul, according lo a couple of reputable  contractors, Ihis may be the year lo think  seriously about switching professions its  Ihe silviculture industry has fallen on  hard limes.  "It's jusl terrible", said Tony Greenfield, owner of Whiskeyjack Reforesta  tion Ltd., located oul of Sechelt. "It's  going lo be gruesome oul there." Greenfield said his own business is down by  one third this year, blaming Ihe decrease  on a heavy glul of contractors in a shrinking Iree planting market. "Il's jusl very,  very competitive right now," he said.  Dirk Brinkman, part-owner of  Brinkman and Associates Reforestation  located oul of New Westminster, agreed  wilh Greenfield's comments, adding lhal  Brinkinati's hadn't been hit as hard as  Whiskeyjack.  It's all pail of tut oil-going decline in  the basic silviculture industry, explained  Brinkman. "The year 1989 was the  peak," he said, "and il may he lhe peak  for litany, many years if ever again."  According lo various sources, the reasons for the decline vary. But neither  Greenfield nor Brinkman had any difficulty identifying whal Ihey fell were the  major reasons.  "There will always be a little bil of  shrinkage due lo improving out performance," said Brinkman, "The more successful wc lire Ihe fewer Irees per Itcctaiv  we need lo plant lo gel Ihe minimum  slocking standard." He said success has  come from better quality trees, smarter  site selection and lighter quality controls  when a tree is planted. The overall result  has been higher survival and heller  growth.  "Where today we niighl have areas  we're plaining 1.400 (lives) per hectare in  order lo get 700-800 free-growing tret's.  10 years from now we'll start lo reduce  that lo 1.3(H) and 1.2(H) and 1.1 (Hi and so  on if we keep improving and working out  lhe problems," he said.  turn to page III  j  - - ^^~-^~dma*_-_a~__~_*_-m_*_a_��_mam  "TT ���,T~i1ttml���^~������^������- ��� ---_e_-mmm_���^_--  a_^_B_H_m_m Coast News, February 15, 1993  Elphinstone  Secondary  -NEWS-  Parents Meetin   Monday.

In fact. Staff Sgl. Cam Reid said il was a  necessary move on behalf of Ihe band in  order to see provincial and federal laws  enforced within Ihe native community. Reid  said prior to Ihe law, il was difficult for the  RCMP lo police the band.  On drug related issues which fall under  the jurisdiction of Ihe federal narcotics act,  Reid said Ihe problem has not been in knowing who Ihe offenders are but in gathering  enough evidence against Ihem and gelling  someone lo publicly testify.  He said Ihis problem of enforcement is  common among Native band members  because they are often related, and to put the  ' finger on an offender "can pul a tremendous  strain on families."  On alcohol violations, Ihe mailer has been  labelled a 'grey area' of jurisdiction.  Reid said the RCMP in the past have  ignored violations to the provincial liquor  control act by the band because the "issue  could evolve to become a matter of provincial jurisdiction over Native land claims."  He said there have been cases elsewhere  in the province where band members have  successfully challenged provincial laws on  the grounds they do not apply on Indian  band lands, which are generally considered  to be under federal jurisdiction.  Reid cited a case in Alexis Creek where a  judge threw out a traffic violation on such  grounds. In the case, the judge said the violation should have been charged under the  federal Indian Act to be valid.  Reid said the next week, the same judge  threw out a traffic ticket issued under the  Indian Act, claiming it was a provincial mailer. "I don'l think it's been defined yel  (legally)," said Reid, adding "no incident has  been serious enough (on the Sechell lands)  to warrant the cost of tying up the courts."  Reid said it was unfortunate lhal enforcement of these laws has been put off for so  long, bul added Ihe decision noi lo charge  violators in the past was in no way due to a  negative relationship with the band. "Often  where the rights of the individual win," he  said, "the rights of the communily are lost."  Band drug and alcohol counsellor Wesley  Jeffries agreed with Reid thai Ihe band has  been difficult to police in the past.  "It's not that these activities weren't  reported lo Ihe police," Jeffries said, "It's  just that they were so accepted."  He said while il's too soon to sec any real  repercussions from Ihe new law, he is confident it will have positive effects.  Land claim delays frustrating band  The Coast News...

Both said they'd love lo negotiate, but held the other jurisdiction responsible for stalling over  cost-sharing arrangements.  "Basically it was the same  old stuff," said Sechelt councillor Trent Dixon. "I heard this  stuff two years ago."  Both Dixon and Calvin  Craigan, also on the land claims  negotiating team, say the band is  growing increasingly frustrated  by government hold-ups to starting negotiation. "One guy got up  and said this is typical government handling. Make a speech  and leave," said Dixon. "Those  people should come and see us  if they are serious."  Recently Sechelt band members have asked for greater control over traditional lands in  their land claim proposal,  including areas up Jervis Inlet,  rather than relinquishing title  outright as originally planned.  "It gives the band members a  little more security," said  Craigan.  While stalling over lalks continues, Ihe band is considering a  court challenge as a final resort  to force governments to start  negotiating.  Ferry traffic planning criticised  At least one local resident has expressed concern that the Coasl isn't being adequately considered in a Ministry of Transportation and Highways  plan to install a traffic light where the new Gibsons  bypass will connect with the Langdale ferry terminal.  "What the ministry is looking at is flow in and  out of that terminal," said Langdale resident and  member of the West Howe Sound Community  Association Eric Cardinall. "Not enough thought is  being given to local needs, particularly people who  want to park their cars and walk onto Ihe ferry or  who want to drop a foot passenger off."  Cardinall said if Highways installs a traffic lighl  to control congestion leaving the terminal, Port  ,i Mellon highway will fcjilqi-a^aqffeyeiy tfrn^fer-,,  ries unload. Because of Ihe location of the terminal's new parking lot, this would mean people  ^IrwJtraf.froin Gibsons, Scctielt.fK anywhae naOh  of the Langdale terminal who wanted to paii Iheir  cars and walk aboard will also have to wait unlil  unloading is complete. "We're going to have Ihe  equivalent of (North Vancouver's) Marine Drive  and Park Royal," Cardinall said.  A Highways spokesman said the plan for a traffic light at the entrance to the Gibsons bypass was  all that was needed according to ministry traffic  studies, and Ihe only real recourse to potential traffic jams at the light would be an overpass out of  the terminal, allowing the Port Mellon highway lo  run underneath.  "The traffic volumes don't justify Ihe expenditure for an overpass al this point," ministry  spokesman Jim Davidson said Thursday, "and  there isn't room lo put one in safely. If it needed to  be done sometime in the future, obviously we'd  have lo have another look al it."  He said residents, people wanting access to the  parking lot or passengers could avoid being stalled  by off loading traffic al the new light by getting to  the ferry terminal a little early.  "1 dflfl!t V( ' to sound unsympathetic. Davidson  said, ''mil people might have to organise their time  a bit better."  Cardinall said he would like lo see the Ferry  Corporation and public also have a say.  Log prices floating on market currents  from page I  "It's like the stock market,"  says Jeff Salmon, manager of  Bayside Sawmills, "When people get word of a log shortage  they begin to buy."  Salmon says that's created  artificially high prices for logs,  which could potentially catch  some people buying at high cost  then facing a fading lumber  market: "It could come crashing  down."  As a sawmill which buys a  hemlock/balsam species mix on  the open log market, Salmon  says prior to the mill's current  shutdown over a labour dispute,  log prices had a dramatic effect  on operations. "We can't just  automatically pass the increase  on," he says. "It's a serious  problem."  Salmon says average log  prices have gone up 28 per cent  in the last six months and "a  high grade log has gone up  much more than that."  While Interfor supplies wood  to its own sawmills, Bell says  the company has been somewhat affe.ted by the prices  because "we don't produce  enough of Ihe right species."  But while log prices are up  10 lo IS per cent higher than  average, says Bell, the company  has been able to sell the lumber'  for a finished cost of about 20  per cent more than usual.  During the last quarter of  1992, several forest companies,  including Interfor, have reported  a renewed upsurge in profits.  Interfor holds the greatest  volume of annual allowable cul  in the Sunshine Coast forest  region.

Ai%i  ^j_t_t_i_^^m_m_mm_m_m_m_m_m  HM Coast News, February 15,  1993  Wolf kill could  have been avoided  Behind the Yukon wolf kill, announced by the Territory's government last week, lies a complicated web of  argument around a basic issue: humankind's dabbling in  the balances of nature.  There is something truly disturbing about the sight of  'conservation' officers packing rifles with high-powered  telescopes whirling around in helicopters and systematically wiping out predatory denizens of the north. All in  the interests of maintaining threatened caribou and moose  populations.  Once more we are forced to witness drastic 'wildlife  management' measures that are a direct result of ignorance and overhunting - supposedly in the past - a legacy  dating from the '40s when the Yukon First became a hot-  spot for big-game hunting.  In spite of conservation measures over the years, the  caribou herd has continued to decline to Ihe point where  native Indians several years ago stopped hunting entirely  for their traditional food. An indigenous culture is  responding to the devastation of a species.  Meanwhile, big-game hunting in the Aishiki, an area  near Kluane National Park where the kill is scheduled to  take place, continued until recently. That is inexcusable.  The announcement of another wolf kill fuels cynicism  around the contentious subject of wildlife management.  Why is it that conservation slill equates with desperate  actions and impending calamity? And that the reasons are  always terribly complex and the scientists always baffled?  However needed, it sometimes seems that attempts at  management will never amount to much in the unpredictable rhythms of nature.  It is a fact that the 200 wolves in the Aishiki area will  shrink on their own without a cull, as their prey diminishes. But there is the very real fear that the decades it takes  for the natural cycle to restore balance will spell doom  for threatened migratory caribou and moose populations,  and potentially for the way of life of indigenous peoples  which depend on them.  Inevitably, tougher regulations will flow from further  study and research - new management plans based on  better information.  But meanwhile, in a windswept corner of southern  Yukon, shots will ring out, more ugly reports on the planet's pressured ecosystems creaking under the weight of  human intervention.  Dirty remedies  It is a time when alternative medical treatments and  medicines have been enjoying a renaissance of sorts. A  time when a growing number of people have been willing  to experiment with the more traditional approaches of  folk medicine in treating a variety of ailments - instead of  resorting to synthetic drugs as a matter of course.  The rising price of prescriptive medicines is one reason  for the change. Another is that the revival of interest in  herb remedies has spread into the mainstream and there is  now a broad spectrum of commercial products available.  So you can almost hear the wails of injustice from a  pharmaceutical industry subjected to regulatory controls  itps 'natural' competitors currently avoid.  The trouble with that line of thinking is that it leads to  regulations and restrictions that are inappropriate for  herbs that have been in common use for centuries.  The government should keep its fingers out of the  herbal remedy business.  ���****'     "\ "\   J/l-liVMi1  W�� -STILL c^jiV-- ^u * |C  CIGARETTE^..  OH!

Given lhal  tht? Department of Fisheries and  Oceans has had approximately  50 years to nearly decimate Ihe  salmon stocks in our country, it  only makes sense lhat they  make some positive changes by  decentralizing some of their  authority to Ihe people who  have historically survived with  and by Ihe salmon.  Granted there have been mis-  lakes, by very few Bands, but  on a much broader scope there  are many successes (ie the  llaida, Nishga, Cowichan,  Qualicum, Sliammon, llomitlcn,  Tsimpscan, Comox, Nimpkish,-,  Campbell River and the :  Sechell.)     _  The tribes will be working  under one authority, Ihe Department of Fisheries and Oceans.  This is not a separate fishery but  one with much diversity that can  only produce greater dividends  for everyone. This department  receives its direction from Ihe  governmenl and is bound by Ihe  statutes and law of our country.  The Supreme Court has recognized the rights of natives in the  Sparrow Decision.  We are all working under  one set of rules lo protect one  species, salmon; not 'aboriginal  salmon.' Though once our  exclusive domain, we shared the  salmon as more and more non-  natives moved into the area;  lei's all share in their survival  now.  Surely Gordon Wilson does  not believe there are racists on  the Coast. Not in Gibsons, not  in Pender Harbour and surely  not in Halfmoon Bay? We must  continue to share: in dialogue,  negotiation, and through open  and honest communication, not  by confrontation. Is it not Ihe  civilized and democratic way?

The article does not do  justice lo the man I grew lo love  and respect and just in case he  was confused with my grandfather I thought I would clear his  name, because he is unable to.  I probably would have spoken about a man who was kind,  generous and willy.

It would have been more  appropriate to just let him quietly pass into Ihe next phase without mention, as he was a private, quiel man. ��� ���.  More importantly, Bob spent  32 years in the volunteer fire  department, where donations in  lieu of flowers are going  towards rescue equipment. This  sentence alone speaks more of  the man, than one embarrassing  incident many years ago.  As I held his hand on his  death bed, we spoke of a man  who would never harm a soul.  One who gave his life so others  wouldn't have to suffer, someone who always had a gentle  manner and a sunny disposition.  A tear rolled down hit cheek  and he quietly departed.  In respect  JENICA VANELI  Gibsons  Ifs time to bring special interest groups under control  The most recent report of the provincial attorney general tells us that the government department which has shown the greatest budgei increase  in the past few years is not the embattled health  ministry after all.  No, it is the education ministry which leads the  way in growth of budgei spending at a time when  the government is unable to do anything bul run up  annual deficits adding lo the overall indebtedness  of lhe province.  Eighty-five percent of the educational budget  goes to pay the salaries and benefits of those  charged with the responsibility of educating the  young. There are several obstacles to getting the  salaries we pay teachers and administrators of our  public schools under control now or in the future.  Let's take a look at a few of them.  First there is the BC Teachers' Federation, a  large and powerful bureaucracy grown militant  after two decades of warring with the Socred governments of Bill Bennett and Bill Vander Zalm.  The BCTF may be the best example of a growth  industry in the province. Thirty years ago it con-  tilted of Charlie Ovans and a couple of secretaries  in a walk-up office on West Seventh Avenue. Now  it occupies more than one city block. For years  elected presidents, with one or two honourable  exceptions, took staff jobs after their term was  served and never went near a classroom again.  musings  John burnside  At contract bargaining time, this powerful and  unified provincial force is ranged against more  than eighty individual school districts. It's no contest, particularly when the bureaucrats on the side  of the school boards tend to get increases which  reflect the gains won by teachers, providing precious little incentive for them to hold down  salaries.  The nearly 20 years of battling the Social Credit  party has in addition turned the BCTF into powerful and rich allies of the present governing party.  Premier Harcourt is already charged with subservience to the BC Federation of Labour and trade  unions generally.  .Another result of tbe Socred years is that more  and more of the education budget has been shifted  from Socred allies, the large corporations, and onto  the backs of the residential taxpayer. During its  current term, perhaps this year, the NDP is going  to find itself between the proverbial rock and a  hard place as the demands of its powerful allies run  smack up against taxpayer resistance.  There are a couple of courses of action which  might be followed. A law could be passed making  it illegal for provincial governments to run deficits.  This would be draconian indeed and many among  us would suffer terribly.  The second alternative would make good political sense for this government and possibly ensure  not only re-election, unlikely as things stand now,  but Premier Harcourt's place in history if he shows  himself to be a man of sufficient vision and  courage to seize the moment  During the American election last fall Ross  Perot scored a lot of points and gained a lot of  attention with hit demand that lhe special interest  groups who provide political funding and demand  favours in return should be brought under control.  President Bill Clinton has vowed to reform the  financing of elections and reduce the influence of  lobbyists on elected representatives.  One /American commentator said recendy that if  the special interest groups are not brought under  control, democracy itself, the primary American  heritage, is endangered. The public financing of  elections would bring us governments who owed  nothing to anyone except the people who vote,"  she said. "It must be done."  Are you listening, Premier Harcourt. Sure, you  can hear already the howls of outrage and cries of  treachery from the BC Federation of Labour, the  Teachers' Federation and the rest. But it ought to  be done and only you are likely to do it.  What's happening is the 'free enterprise' party  favours the corporations and then the allegedly left  alternative gets a turn and favours the trade unions  The taxpayer gets hosed either way.  We can't look to the Socreds to break the cycle.  Their ties io the corporate sector are historic and  clear. Gordon Wilson is currently making the  rounds of the Chief Executive Officers in the  province promising his Liberals will out-Socred  the Socreds.  Not only can it be done, Premier Harcourt, it  has been done in Canada. As we have mentioned  before, former New Brunswick premier Richard  Hatfield got so outraged at the demands of his own  bagmen that he publicly financed the election of  1976, apportioning the money on the basis of the  percentage of popular vote won in the previous  election.  It should be done here and it should be done  now if we are ever to get our governments out of  the control of powerful special interest groups.  Go ahead, Mikey, make a name for yourself that  will resonate.

It was  aboul napping and it happened  to come along at a time when I  commonly lake a nap myself.  These limes, it has been suggested to me, come along more  often as I move along in time,  but no mailer.  Whal jolted me to some  extent awake was Ihe reporter  saying thai captains of commercial aircraft frequently lake little  naps as ihey fly us over the  North Hole, Gobi Desert or  wherever. Hey, I thought, really  - senators maybe yes, but captains of aircraft, no.  ll was true lhal I had had  some experience of this sort of  semi-dozing al the helm. For  something over 3,000 hours I  Hew as navigalor in flying boals  over lhe Atlantic.  Wc wenl often more than 20  hours at a time. There were  three bunks aboard and a crew  of seven, assuring everyone a  regular snooze by simply organizing watches, almost everyone.  There were Iwo pilots, Iwo  engineers and two wireless operators but only one navigator.  This was because at lhal time  before satellites and the inertial  system and good long range  radar, navigation contained a  larger factor of by guess and by  god than it does today; and they  felt that continuity throughout a  trip might besl be kepi within  one head.  This was supposing, presumably, lhat the head would stay  awake while all about him..sure  they did, but it stays in my  memory lhat the navigators of  that time and calling (or ordering) developed a particular  knack for catching little zizz-es  out of almosl any sequence of  events and managed it without  notice, lhat is to say without  alarming Ihe crew.  Because, of course, il must be  someway alarming lo be looking  over there and finding your navigator zizzing away wilh his  nose on his chart. This musl, I  expect, have been strictly a no-  no with navigators, as pulling a  crimp in Ihe essential credibility,  almosl from the start. There was  a tradition, a legend even, thai  grew up lhat no mailer whal the  rest were doing, navigators  stayed awake.  Consider Palinurus, for  example, Aeneas' navigator on  his trip from Troy lo found  Rome. You will remember perhaps how the terrible goddess  Juno raised a mighty storm at  night in order to drive him on  Ihe rocks and punish him for jilting her favourite Dido.  They were all asleep and  slept right through il; and there  would likely have been no  Rome if it hadn't been for Palinurus. Palinurus stayed awake,  stuck to his rudder, and kept  them off the headland. In punishment for Ihis flaunting of Ihe  in a nutshell  gods he was swept away (still  clutching his helm like any good  navigator), washed ashore and  ealen up by savages.  Or imagine if you can, Eric  the Red and his navigator to Iceland Floki the Finn. Eric had a  storied, notorious, terrible temper. How would it have been, do  you think, if Eric had started  coming on his Floki flaked on  the bearskins instead of consulting his cage of sacred ravens?  I have instructed in navigation and at length, and at what  was then regarded as the best  school (600 students from all Ihe  NATO countries).  We taught a number of surrounding courses, leadership,  management, etc., but as far as I  remember there was nothing on  this old question of maintaining  credibility with a crew, keeping  a best course speed and height,  and still catching a few needed  winks.  That this can become a quite  serious matter has been illustrated, I think, several limes in our  recent flying years. The one that  springs to mind was the case of  the Korean Airliner which took  stuart nutter  off from Paris at night to fly lo  Fairbanks, Alaska, then on to  Korea.  Its course took them on a big  loop north and indeed over  Melville Island, site of the magnetic pole. Here the aircraft, in  the middle of the night, made a  180 degree turn and hours later,  nobody saying anything, ended  up over Murmansk, Russia.  It was navigating with a system (invented and made in  Canada) called INS, a fancy  gyroscope just monitored by the  magnetic force. The gyro motors  had been allowed lo become too  weak, but there was clearly no  way this could have happened  unless just about everyone had  been asleep almost from the outskirts of Paris.  The next time it happened  (also to Korea) Ihe whole kit and  keboodle were shot down into  the Sea of Japan, and this time  loo there seemed no question  that sleep, pretty deep sleep, had  been the cause.  So, dozing, napping, zizzing I  say, is a developed if not a perfected art. Anyone looking for  instructors can apply to me.  LEN WRAYS TRANSFER LTD.

(Bob) Wilson, we wish it known  lhat the article written by Dick  Kennett, and published Feb. 8  was submitted without knowledge of this family. The article  does not convey the gentle, caring, community-minded person;  our father,was   Dad had a great love for this  area, which came about when he  was 15 and paddled a canoe up  from Kitsilano Beach to  Williamsons Landing. This journey caused Dad to decide to  return and make this area our  home.  Dad was never a "truck driver in mind and body", as he was  a person of small stature, which  made the job of "swamping" on  the truck too physically taxing  on him. He and John Wilson  both worked for Richard N.  McKibbons "Gibsons Cartage",  and certainly could not afford  the luxury of drinking and driving.  Dad also managed the old  Co-op Store for some lime and  delivered groceries and we children accompanied him many  times on the butter box, which  was the extra sealing of that  day. Dad joined and spent 32  years with lhe local volunteer  fire departmenl, and enjoyed the  camaraderie of his associates.  He shared the driving on one  occasion with Bill Scott, when a  newly purchased fire truck  needed to come from Ontario to  BC.  Dad was always active,  returning to his schooling in mid  life lo enable him to acquire an  Industrial First Aid ticket, so he  could secure a job as watchman  at Port Mellon, where he spent  19 years with; Cantor., After his-  i retirement from the ���mill, he was i  hired as a security officer and  continued to work ��t the fort  Mellon site until July '92, when  he became ill. Dad touched  many persons' lives with his  gentleness and sense of humour  and is missed.  The incident of the 'coffin',  mentioned in the Dick Kennelt  article was, we feel, in poor  taste, being merely a party prank  shared by intimate friends in  their silly salad days. Our Dad  enjoyed sobriety for several  decades before his death and  was outspoken concerning the  misuse and/or abuse of alcohol.  While we assume that the article  was intended lo be a humorous  tribute to our Dad, in our eyes it  was not.  GAVEN & PATRICIA  (WILSON) IDLER  ROBERT G.WILSON  BRUCE M.

No. For tne past 1 �� years, commercial fisheries have  maintained 9*'ft of tne total salmon catch. Recraational uses  accounted fo~ 2% and the Ahortpinal share has staved  at 3%- Any additional allocation of fish to Native groups in the  future will be cameo out through the voluntary sale of  commercial licences.  Last year, three experimental pro,ects were  negotiated to test sale of fish by Natives within  existing allocation levels. In 1992. no additional  fish were allocated to the Native fishery.  How can you ensure any  reallocation to Natives is fair to the  commercial sector?  DFO is committed to the stability of the  commercial sector. Industry developed  a system for the sale of commercial  licences. It is completely voluntary and  provides market value for licences.  DFO is now implementing it.  Are B.C. fishermen paying the cost  of settling Native claims?  No The AFS is totally separate trom  the claims process It is a response to a 1990  decision by the Supreme Court of Canada.  Has the government consulted with  commercial and recreational fishermen?  The government is commrtteo to consulting  with interested parties at every step o1 the way In 1992 alone  DFO heid -M meetings with commercial arid recreational  stakeholders on the development of the Strategy and progress  of negotiations The department will continue to involve them  in implementing the AFS.

Oney De Camp:  1901-1993  Oney grew up in whal was  once called Wesl Howe Sound  in the fine home her logger  father, Hugh Burns had built in  1907 on acreage - part of which  is now the Salvation Army  camp.  She worked for a lime for  the telephone company in Vancouver, then decided to go to  San Francisco where she knew  Canadians readily found  employment. There she met her  husband Paul. When her three  daughters were still small children, she became a widow in  the trying times of the Great  Depression.  There were long years of  employment and homemaking,  challenging years that she met  with great fortitude and equanimity.  When she retired she determined to come lo Gibsons lo  live, a place wilh fond memories for her. Two of her sisters,  Marie Scolt and the lale Sally  Thompson, were living here  then and some years later on  another sister, Aina Burns,  came to live in Gibsons also.  Of her two brothers living here  at that time, Robert was for  many years Ihe clerk of Gibsons Village. His office, the  small building at Armour's  Beach that the rugby club now  uses.  A few years ago Oney went  to live wilh her daughter Dilys,  in Arizona, but she did make a  visit to Gibsons once again to  see friends and the familiar  sights of the town and Ihe  Sound,  Oney was a tireless worker  in Ihe hospital auxiliary and for  some years head of ils Thrift  Shop in Sechelt. She loved her  garden and took pleasure in  giving flowers and vegetables  lo Ihose who had no gardens.  All who knew her found her a  hospitable host and an understanding friend. Always a  staunch Democrat, she did relish the election of Bill Clinton  last November.

Approximately  500 players are expected to sign  up for Ihe season and registration is Feb. 26 and 27 and  March 5 and 6 at Sunnycrest  Mall. Hopefully enrolment will  not have to be limited.  A group of Roberts Creek  parents representing about 60  players presented a petition to  the association hoping to establish community-based teams,  but Ihis season il won't be happening.  Creek OCP  At least one Coast News  reader has accused me of whining about the garrish-looking  mega houses lhat are popping  up on Ihe Coast. Maybe it's loo  lale for Gibsons wilh ils increasing amount of large vinyl-sided  houses taking up entire postage-  stiunp-size lots, bul residents of  Roberls Creek DO still have a  say in how their communily is  going lo develop. It's called the  Official Community Plan and  Ihis plan is in the works right  now, being carefully debated  and pounded out by a group of  dedicated working committee  members who are all Roberls  Creek residents. Keeping Ihis  area rural, Irecd and preventing  Surrey-minded developers from  arriving to denude and desecrate  Ihe landscape is a concern  shared by the majority of Creek  residents.  The next meeting of the  Roberts Creek Official Community Plan working committee  will be Wednesday, Feb. 17 at  7:30 pm in the libruatf- al  Roberts Creek elementary,^ ��� >  RCCA meeting  The nexl RCCA meeting is  Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 pm.

The execulive of the RCCA  would like to encourage more  Roberts Creek residents to  attend the meetings. Your input  is needed and you do not have  to be a member to participate.  Bul if you do wish to lake out a  membership in the association  so lhal you can vole on issues,  the fee is only $5 per person per  year.

"They" whoever coins  new phrases, are now calling Ihis "home invasion." When one is invaded can't you protect yourself from the invaders by aiming a ball bat al  knees? Of course we all know that you can't do  lhal because it's assault. I'll be surprised if Ihe  hockey player who spits beer in people's faces will  be convicted of assault. It will probably be called  hijinks and maybe a small fine will be levied. He  is a very common ral who thinks he's a big cheese.  He's full of holes, like a Swiss cheese, with one  hole labelled moral character - he lost that when he  received his firsl big cheque.

P.lisha  Strackcr's pictute was one of 60  selected at random from more  than 10,000 submitted lo (he  Vancouver Sun's annual 'What  Chrislmas Means to mc' projecl. All the students drew a  picture showing whal was special lo them about Chrislmas.  Ihere were Santas, Christmas  trees, presents, baby Jesus and  lots of stars.  The class received a copy of  Let's Celebrate! Canada's Special Days by Carline Parry, lo  be used as a reference book. 1  can't wait until my son comes  home wilh some of the wonderful ideas I saw shown in Ihis  book.  Mr. Moslovich's grade 5/6  class was off to the Outdoor  School in Squamish last  Wednesday, Thursday and Priday. This was an opportunity  for Ihem lo experience co-operative learning in an outdoor  environment. Along with outdoor survival skills, they also  enjoyed a bil of farm life. It was  quite an experience for Ihem;  something I am sure none will  forget for a long time.  When I go for my daily  walk, I always marvel al Ihe  beauty of Davis Bay. There  seems to be a very special feeling to ihis area. Residential,  commercial, industrial and  farming interests seem to coexist so well wilh one another.  As you look over people's  yards, you can tell there is a real  pride in keeping Iheir homes  and yards well kept. There is  always a special or unusual  flower bed, well pruned shrubbery; sometimes it is a well  planned children's play area or  a sanctuary for birds.  Davis Bay elementary is in  real need of some of Ihis TLC.  The students, teachers and a  few dedicated parents have tried  lo gel the flower beds cleaned  up, but Ihe job seems lo have  gotten loo big for Ihe loo few.  If each of us went up lo lhe  School for an hour or two and  pulled weeds, wc could gel il as  beautiful as the surrounding  neighbourhood, Many of us arc  also dividing perennials and  starling annuals - these would  really he appreciated. Either  plant Ihem in the area you have  weeded (mark Ihem), or leave  Ihem for the sludenis to plant.  If wc, as a communily, take  pride in our school, so will Ihe  sludenis who allend. The same  pride in our communily should  also he extended lo the mailboxes. A few neighbours have  mentioned the amount of  garbage lhat scents lo be collecting around the mailboxes,  es|K'cially the Iwo siles near the  store which has a large garbage  barrel. Please deposit your  refuse there, or lake il home.  Wishes for a very speedy  recovery go oul lo (Henna  Salahub.  Project LOVE, sponsored by  CODE, is a way for Canadian  childien lo support literacy in  developing countries, where  there is a greal lack of learning  materials available lo school  children.

Basketball Kids  ��� The Halfmoon Bay elementary school basketball teams  have been doing very well in  recent games. A couple of  weeks ago the boys' team beat  the Pender Harbour team, then  this past week they also won out  over Madeira Park school. The  Halfmoon Bay girls team also  defeated Madeira Park, so the  players are feeling pretty good  aboul their victories.  Considering that Ihe Halfmoon Bay group has such a  small gym in which to practice,  they work very hard to gel il  together.  Country Fair  Although it is still only the  monlh of February, work and  plans are already being thought  of for this year's fair.  The Country Fair of Halfmoon Bay has been growing  each year and with this growth  comes a great need for storage  of chairs, stage, props, elc.

Fraser  "I don't want to gel involved  - it's not my business."  "I can'l prove anything - it's  jusl my word against theirs."  Do any of these phrases  sound familiar lo you? Are  either the excuse you sell yourself to justify not calling the  police.  Have you heard yourself  utter these remarks over coffee  and then do nothing? I hope not.  Perhaps it is a sign of the  limes as it has been suggested lo  me recently, police are hearing  these phrases with increasing  regularity.  In these days when B&E's  and hit and run accidents are  increasing, a growing segment  of our community appears  resigned lo remain quiel on  information needed lo solve  these crimes.  Over Ihe past few months  many in our community have  grown critical of Ihe justice system lo adequately deal with  crime. These citizens have a  valid point to make. The justice  system, though, is only as good  as you make il. Police and prosecutors arc confined lo work  within a set standard of rules  when it comes to giving evidence in court.  'Hearsay' or common talk is  of no value. Without a witness  r*5r����a��  \&  Cst. Kevin Fraser  willing to give testimony most  investigations are dead in Ihe  water. It is an absolute abuse of  process lo charge someone  without evidence. I see this  problem as a moral and social  shortcoming not a legal issue.  It is especially saddening lo  find an employer who penalizes  employees giving evidence in  court.  Forcing Iheir employees lo  chose between a day's wages  and integrity.  B&E's arc particularly devastating, primarily In Ihe victims  bul also lo Iheir neighbours and  the community as a whole. The  failure of neighbours lo report  observations makes lhe critical  element of identifying a suspecl  almost impossible.  Hit and runs are so numerous  on the Coasl. In 11 years of  policing I've never seen a place  so prone lo Ihis crime, particu  larly parking lot hit and runs. If  you ever wondered how these  hit and runs affect a communily,  just ask anyone who buys auto  insurance.  The Sunshine Coast's territorial insurance rate is based on  Ihe costs incurred by ICBC  here. For a comparison, Vancouver is higher, Victoria is  lower, and we are par with  Nanaimo. /  In my view Ihe people win*)  deserve lhe highest praise in :uiy  community are Ihose who are  willing lo stand up for it.  I say cheers lo lhe dwindling  majority when we need Ihem the  most and shame on those who  won't siep forward to help.  Whal goes on in yout fown is  your business and you may lie  pleasantly surprised lo find just  how your word carries weigh! in  making this a belter place f"  live. t  egmont news  by l-ynn Mees  Well, I actually started turning over the soil in the garden  and did it ever feel soothing lo  Ihe heart.  Working outside in a colourful sweater and viewing a huge  bumblebee coming right up to  me, anticipating the flower-  filled days ahead. That to me  was a true sign lhal spring is  around the corner.  Dance  So is a dance I hear, so far as  I know there will be a community club dance happening  belore this month of February is  over. I'm trying lo get a concrete answer lo thai one, as soon  as I find out I will pass the word  along.  Films  Also word is that once a  month probably on a Friday  night will he movie night at the  school with National Film  Board films. There is a catalogue at the school in the  library, so have a look through  il to see if there's anything  you're interested in.  Rutt out  I'm having a hard lime concentrating these days as I've  recently quit smoking. Ihe lack  of nicotine makes you quite  insane for Ihe first few days and  it's a challenge to not let il get  the belter of you.  I'm high on the fact thai I'm  doing it, It gives you a crazy  hyper buzz. For Ihose of you  who've never smoked consider  yourself lucky lo never have  been inflicted wilh Ihis drug, for  those who have quit or still  smoke and have tried, you know  whal I'm going through.

Social Credit parly  member Stan Dixon presented  the premier with a talking stick  and staled "A talking slick has  lillle weight to il and may be  used lo either knock heads or  hit a few bums and doesn't say  how long you can speak."  Gordon Wilson, leader of the  BC Liberal party last week said  lhal in his view the premier's  posilion on abortion is irresponsible nnd puts BC women and  doctors in an impossible position. ^  10 WARS AGO  Heavy rains caused some  flooding in various parts of the  Sunshine Coast this weekend.  Two of Ihe worst hit areas were  Wilson and Chaster Creek  areas. Access lo the Wilson  Creek Campground, where IS  families are living, was cut off.  15 YEARS AGO  A member of Sechelt Council has had a civil suit for libel  filed against him. At issue is  Sechelt Council's request that  the lumberyard adjacent to  Sechelt Building Supplies cannot be allowed to be there  because it is in contravention of  zoning bylaws.  25 YEARS AGO  The 1968 school budget  totalling $1,934,223 up 22.3  percent over 1967, was analyzed Wednesday night.  30 YEARS AGO  Two small buildings now  grace the Sechelt/Uibsons  Municipal Airport in the vicinity of Wilson Creek. They are to  become a clubhouse and a  hangar.  35 YEARS AGO  A letter to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles will be  sent requesting the service of  the mobile testing unit, as  advised by Ihe Sechell Village  Commission at Ihe lasl meeting.  40 YEARS AGO  The public heallh nurse who  has been operating in the area,  has been transferred to Vancouver. A replacement will not be  made for al least one month.  All fixed up after a little accident, Ihis male neutered rriendly cat  is waiting for a good home - and there's still two puppies left,  too! Call the SPCA at 885-4771  SPCA, there to help  In a survey conducted lasl fall, SPCA shelter managers and agents  throughout BC identified pet abandonmenl as one of their top concerns.  Why do people abandon pets? Sometimes, it's for economic reasons. In these tough limes, an extra mouth lo feed can be too big of a  burden on a shrinking family budget. More often, it's because of  behavioural problems - the dog that won't slop barking when it's left  alone, or the puppy who is difficult to housetrain.  Spaying and neutering, incidentally, was the other top concern  identified in the survey, conducted by Ihe BC Human Education  Society. Unfortunatly, abandoned animals often get into trouble.  Accidents, attacks, even bites from rabid wild animals - are frequently the lot of the abandoned pet.  People need lo know lhal they can call Iheir SPCA for help in  either addressing a behavioural problem or in finding a new home for  their animal, the society says.

For Rent  ADVERTISING  FOR TENANCY  British Columbia legislation prohibits advertising which discriminates in the rental ol property.  For example a person who  stipulates 'No Children' as a  condition ol rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspaper which  publishes it would bolh be in  contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  against them. The Coast News  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads.  1 barm, ground level, garden, view  apt, central Gibsons. $395.255-  7518.

Humana Education Socaaty, educational arm ol lhe B.C.S.P.C.A.  ft urn page I  'The whole thing has been leully light-  cued up," Cireenfield agreed, recalling his  firsl year planting in 1969.  "When I first started it's jusl amazing to  me lhal anything ever grew.  "They'd hire a guy off the street and call  him a foreman and they'd hire a truck load  of guys who'd never planted a Iree and  didn't know which end of a shovel to use  and they'd head up to the hills. There was  just no quality control at all. Everybody got  their wage."  It wasn't until the early 1970s, Greenfield  explained, when the government entered a  contracting system that things began to  improve.  "The contractors became accountable," he  said, "So if you didn't do the job right you  didn't uiil paid."  And from there it's been a steady increase  in forestry guidelines, boosting each tree's  chance of survival upwards past 80 per cent.  In fact, he'd go so far as lo say Ihere is  very little room for improvement in the quality control of trees being planted today.  The success of a jointly funded $300 million federal-provincial program labelled the  Forest Resource Development Agency  (FRDA), has also had ils effect on planting.  Implemented in 1985, Ihe idea behind  FRDA was to catch up on a backlog of cut-  blocks that had not been satisfactorily  replanted.  "Maybe a billion trees were planted on  this program," Greenfield explained, adding  it made a big difference to the backlog sites,  most of which were in Northern BC.  However, funding for FRDA ended in  1989 and, when in 1991 FRDA II was created, the emphasis had shifted from planting  trees to tending the plantations lhat are  already established.  "It sort of makes sense," said Greenfield.  "Bul Ihis has bad repercussions for our particular industry...you can see one third of the  market has disappeared in two or three  years."  Partially due to Ihe shift in emphasis, he  said, fewer trees will be planted in BC -  declining from 320 million trees planted in  1990 to approximately 220 million ihis year.  Brinkman said the province is continuing  to reforest backlog areas in a smaller scale  under alO-year incremental program.  "They're eliminating less and less each  year," he said, "so by the year 2000 there's  nothing."  But the biggest single move lo hurl the  tree planting industry, in Brinkman's opinion, occurred in 1987 when the province  amended the Porest Act, requiring all parties  who harvest limber to carry oul the functions  of basic silviculture.  While lhat meant a jump of about 38 per  cent in the sites requiring reforestation,  reliance on natural regeneration also  increased.  The nel result was an approximate 15 per  cenl decrease in lhe area planted.  "That represents aboul 45 million Irees  that used lo be planted that are now being  replaced by naturals acknowledged as  acceptable, well-established species.  "Personally while I think it's a hard thing  for our businesses and it's a hard thing for  the employment of students and youths and  olher people who have careers (in the industry)," Brinkman said, "1 think it's the best  Ihing for the forest to acknowledge all the  natural regeneration - that's the right species  and Ihe right place - and still plan for the  rest.  " There's a lot more of thai happening."  i  SUNSHINE   COAST   INSURANCE   AGENCIES   LTD   GIBSONS   MOTORISTS  If you buy ICBC insurance at  the Gibsons Motor Licence Office,  you're missing a great deal.

"It started off in 1960 as a  pretty nice speedboat," says Jim  Dougan. "It's been sunk I don't  know how many times and has  had I don't know how many  engines."  Beyond the floats, a wooden  box of tools, and a custom rig-  up of instruments beside the  steering wheel, a list of compass  settings is written out on a piece  of cardboard: Pender Harbour  from Texada, north 347 degrees;  Nanaimo from Texada, soulh  east 125.  Behind the VHF marine radio  forecasting light south easterly  winds in Ihe strait is a sticker on  the cabin wall: "God is greater  than any problem I have."  There's no radar, Loran or  aulomalic pilot. Once, lost in the  fog, Dougan says he overshot  the island coming home from  Lasqueli. "You learn to pray a  lot," he comments.  A life of dead reckoning is a  style now long-familiar lo  Dougan, who grew up on Texada and for ihe past 20 years has  had a homestead built of driftwood on the south tip of the  island.  For the most part, he's abandoned an existence of convenience and mortgages in favour  of a kind of solitude.  "Money's what buggers  things up," he says. "Most guys  probably made more in the last  two years than I've made in the  last 30."  Originally, Dougan's grandfather came to Ihe island to log  over 50 years ago after getting a  call from a logging contractor,  Ole Buck, about some work on  the south end of Texada.  "He got my grandfather dirt  cheap of course, because what  else was there to do," says  Dougan.  During the 1940s "they got  almost nothing for their logs but  the big deal was keeping their  sons out of the army," he says.  "As long as they were working  in industry they weren't going to  get drafted."  Eventually a small community sprang up. His uncle bought a  plane and his dad built an  airstrip with a bulldozer. There  were even a couple of Cadillacs  to drive over the logging roads.  "All loggers if they're worth  their salt want a Cadillac," says  Dougan.  As Texada draws closer, fog  rolls over bolh in front of the  boat and behind, shutting out the  island and the mountains of the  mainland and leaving only a  steel-coloured sea, as though  part of a final rite of passage.  The sound of the engine echoes  around in the mist. Slowly, the  south tip of Upwood Point  begins to make a dark shape in  the fog.  When the island opens in  front of the boat again, it looms  up from the water, the outline of  trees standing up like fur along  its spine. Fir and arbutus twisted  with wind grip the rocky shoreline.  Dougan gestures to a spot  where they took out marble at  the beginning of the century.  "They cut it out in benches,"  with a widge and feathers sys  tem of leverage to drive the marble apart, he says. When hia  family arrived in the 1940s,  some of the old tracks and carts  were slill around. By now it's all  long gone, part of the island's  past that's slowly been erased  by time.  The boat moves into Anderson Bay and Dougan cuts the  engine, untying the skiff. He  rows ashore, pointing out the  'Money's what  buggers things up...  Most guys  probably made  more in tbe last two  years than I've  made in the last 30"  -Jim Dougan  spot where the old log dump and  the cookhouse used to be.  At one time, his mother's  family - another line of loggers -  owned 160 acres at the south  end of the island. Both his mother's and father's families - the  Coxes and the Dougans -logged  out of Anderson Bay.  "They dumped into one side  of the bay and we dumped into  the other," he sajllT*Tt ftade for  some dicey times,1 all being  together and being loggers."  "We grew up in clan. That's  what's wrong with me now.  Never did get used to the outside world."  "The thing about logging is  none of the golden rules of society apply."  His oars dip into the water.  "Just before it gets dark one  of the most beautiful things you  can do is go out in a skiff and  troll around the bay...spring  salmon, you can smell them."  Back in the Texada Queen 2,  he pulls through "the gap"  between the large island and a  smaller one and around to the  south end at Upwood Point,  where the wind picks up.  He points to a marker offshore.  "The marker wasn't always  on that rock. Once my dad was  coming home from Anderson  Bay and a guy had put a 50-foot  fish raft on that rock."  turn to page 20  "GOOD DEAL MEALS"  are back  Sunday to Thursday  February 14-18,1993  laiiKtlMimdaya)  This Week's Feature  U^3  1.

At the south end of Ihe  island, the wind blows all the  lime, he says, bul "Ihe place I  live is very enchanted. It's  magic. Everybody feels it."  Around a comer, a collection  of shake and driftwood cabins  gaze out from the edge of a pebbly beach.  The original part of the house  was put together in 1970 and  "I've been building it ever  since," he says. "If everything  else blows up I can live."  He counts items like matches, salt and nails among a small  list of necessities, anything that  "costs so little compared to its  usefulness it would be stupid to  be without it."  A large front room with a  woodstove and a table hung  from the ceiling looks out over  the strait. There's a small collection of books, spare chairs suspended from the wall and storage up above the kitchen in the  rafters. The door handles are  made with the smooth bone of  deer antlers.  "Some people aie herd animals and others are individuals...," he says. "I tried all sorts  of things lo make a living: carving, fixing boats, building houses. I picked a whole bunch Of  salal...1 didn't make much  money."

Up a path behind  the house, there's a generator  run off the creek pu! together  lose from the  pipeline, a refrigerator compressor base, a firehose nozzle and  part of a washing machine,  among other bits and pieces.  One thing he's been able to  do over the years is work on his  music on Texada, producing  several cassettes of original  songs under Ihe label Skinny  Jimmy's Snack Bar and playing  for live audiences up and down  the coast.  In songs like "Beachcomber  Blue" "Southeast" and "Christmas Tow" there's a deep twang  reminiscent of Hank Williams  or Johnny Cash combined with  lyrics on the blowing wind and a  sense of isolation. "Silence does  have a sound to it."  That's not always the kind of  music he plays live. "Bars have  a certain kind of music you get  asked for," says Dougan. "You  got to keep them happy. Music  is a drag you know. They want  you to play just loud enough so  they almost can'l hear each  other."  On top of a rock bluff overlooking the property, the line of  the horizon blurs to the south.  There's the mainland lo the east,  the evening falling over the  shape of 1 -asqueti and Vancouver Island to west, the Texada  Queen 2 bobbing down in front  of the beach.  A tug pulls a barge through  Sabine Channel.  "When I start having problems I come up here and start  doing some deep thinking," he  says.  "Most people don't want to  think. If you get them in a quiet  spot they'll turn a radio  on.here, I can hear seals breaking the water down on the  beach.  "It's a very lonesome kind of  a place where I live. If you  come over here and choose to  live this way there are a lot of  things you're going to be without"  Behind the property, tall trees  rise on a grassy slope, bending  like long arms catching a still  space in the wind.  "Texada is like anything  that's really beautiful," says  Dougan. "You have to earn it."  Capilano College Singers scheduled to  perform in Davis Bay's United Church  A highly accomplished group of musicians, the  Capilano College Singers, conducted by Lars  Kaario and accompanied on piano by Mary McK-  inney, will perform at St. John's United Church,  Davis Bay, Saturday, Feb. 27 at 8 pm.

Gregory, a 16-year old student al Pender Harboui Senior  Secondary, is a member of the  North Shore Special Olympics  Howling League, which is home  to more than .1��. athletes.  The North Shore Special  Olympics program has almost  100 athletes involved in everything from rhythmic gymnastics  to alpine skiing, and is the only  program available to Coast spe-  t'ci8rOlyiaf|>ib athletes-.''     An overflow crowd of .100  people packed Ihe Varsity Ridge  lanes on Wesl 15th in Vancouver for the annual event, which  has been held for the past eight  years as Ihe Vancouver Invitational. Two North Shore teams  vied against teams Iront as far  afield as Squamish and Abbots-  ford.  A wide variety of coaching  techniques was evident as  enthusiastic bowlers blasted the  five pins. Excitement was con-  'We have been trying  to establish an  organization on the  Sunshine Coasl for  two years'  lagiotts as teams vied for the  besl above average score in a  series of three games.  North Shore coaches Lorna  Anthony and May Wilson urged  Iheir teams lo belter anil better  performances. Said Wilson,  "Matthew's only been with us  since September but he has really come along. It's wonderful lo  see the camaraderie he has-wilh  the other athletes. We're hoping  he will stay with us for our summer program which includes  soccer, baseball, and track and  field."  Although the North Shore  clubs did not place in the lop  three, Matthew's team mate,  Lisa Hart, came within one  point of lhe women's high average. The Ihree yeai old  Squamish team left most contenders behind with a whopping  .17K points above the average.  Coquitlam and Vancouver came  in second and third.  Pam Sywulych. who is ihe  BCSO Provincial Program committee chair said, "A lol of people don'l think special Olympics  is integrative, but our long-term  goal is integration. You have to  start somewhere.  We have athletes who have  progressed and are participating  in regular spotting events, like  the IH* Summer and Winter  games. We will be having our  provincial eliminations this  summer to send athletes to lhe  national games in Halifax in the  slimmer of 1904. All of our  coaches are trained, and we  couldn't cany otl the program  without the help of our dedicated volunteers.  "We have been trying lo  establish an organization on the  Sunshine Coast for two years.  Basically we have been tinned  down because people don'l  think we aie integrative enough  and some people thought we  were based on the American  model which provides "buggers" for all athletes. We feel  that's demeaning and it isn't  appropriate."

Learn how to play  bridge or play ll better  Lesson X: Blockbuster  Hands  So far we have considered  hands wilh 21 points maximum.  Once in a while you will he  lucky lo gel 22 or inorc points,  lhe problem is that if you weie  to o|ien such a hand at once you  would be terribly disappointed  if yout partner passed.  To prevent such a situation,  you open such hands at two  level (so called strong twos):  Balanced hands with 22-21  points with 2NT. Balanced  hands with 25-27 points with  3NT.  This gives your partners an  exact count, so they pass only  with 0-2 points and a balanced  band, bul go to 3NT wilh 3 or  more points (we will consider  slam bidding in a separate article).  With unbalanced hands (you  have at least one live-card suil)  and a minimum of 22 points, but  also any hand that you can make  a game by yourself (26 points),  should be opened al lhe two  level.  Your partner, therefore, docs  not know your exacl count and  will respond 2NT (artificial bid)  showing weakness 0-5 points, or  can raise your suil wilh 3 card  support, bid Iheir own suil, or  3NT with six or more points.  An alternative lo show a  strong hand is an agreed upon 2-  clttb opening, covering all suit  strong holdings and is an inter  esting subject all hy itself taken  up in advanced bridge in conjunction with two-level weak  openings in the rest of ihe suits.

A faint ocean breeze filters in  through the surrounding rainforest, rustling Ihe left-over Fall  leaves and stirring       the senses with a  whispered promise  of Spring. An artificial creek cascades  down a dered stone  water- fall to fill a  small pond around  which there are  benches for sitting  and reflecting, and  there is a winding  path if one were "   "  inclined to stroll.  It's a calm, beautiful place  this Inner Ear. or at least it  appears to be.

Indeed,  high energy undertakings are  becoming the hallmark of the  Inner Far recording studios.  Over the past three years the  Inner Ear has earned a reputation as a funky, high quality    venue for showcasing local talent; an  acoustically sound  proving area where  some of the  Coast's best, if  unsung, musicians  stage their transition from basemenl  practice session up  into the lights of  _____    live performance.  Any number of  local minstrels have made their  debut through the Inner Ear's  monthly coffee houses, just as  an number of established performers have used the studio to  hone their musical skills, from  individual performers such as  Mick Bryant and Nikki Weber's  three young prodigies, Sarah  Norris, Annie Konopasic and  Caroline Rudland, to respected  Vancouver groups like the Hard  Rock Minors.  "This place is a bastion of  creativity, says Gordon Laird,  one of three key figures in the  workings of the Inner Ear.  "There is some kind of jamming  going on almost every day."  But there's more to the Inner  Ear than just the monthly musical treats. As the name implies,  the Inner Ear is a functioning,  high quality recording studio,  one that has attracted bands  from as far away as Ontario to  commit their musical efforts to  Memorex.  "We've got a couple of cabins where musicians can sleep  when Ihey come," says Elizabeth Inksetter, co-owner and  driving force inside the Inner  Ear. "And we take sort of a laid  back approach to things that  tie appreciate."  Il's local bands and musi-  CHECK OUT THE GREAT SAVIHGS AT OUR  ALE  SHOP EARLY, QUANTITIES��ARE LIMITED!.

They are drawn to the Inner Ear  for the most practical of considerations -convenience. According to Inksetter's partner,  Michael Lacoste, the convenience comes in the form of  avoided 'big city hassles'.  "(The musicians who use the  Inner Ear) might possibly find  facilities with similar recording  equipment in Vancouver for a  couple of dollars an hour less,"  I^cosle says, "bul with us they  don't have to worry aboul ferries or traffic or whatever.  "And we're really flexible,"  adds Inksetter, "We're not nin-  off-our-feet busy. We deal with  Ihings in a laid back way ... people know us."  Lacoste, who acts as sound  engineer, producer and all-round  creative influence al the Inner  Ear, says it's not all good times  and music at the studio, however.  The sluggish national economy has meant that musicians  and bands have been less willing  to lake risks producing albums,  so business has not been all that  it could be.  "It's been slow," Lacoste  admits," but with the coffee  houses (and other projects)  we've managed to keep busy  and not go under. And it looks  like things are going to get a bit  busier this year."  February, at least, will be  busier as the Inner Ear kicks off  its first coffee house of 1993  with a lineup of talent that  includes the likes of Carl Nelson, the local fisherman- poet,  Mick Bryant the local jazz guitarist, and possibly 20-year-old  Grant Owen, who is currently  recording an album at the Inner  Ear. "ll should be a good show,"  Inksetter said.  The coffee house will take  place Friday, Feb. 26 at 8 pm at  the Inner Ear sludio on Leek  Road.  Early Scorcese films  to show at arts centre  US filmmaker Martin  Scorcese (Mean Streets, Raging  Bull) is featured this week as  the Arts Centre continues its  Spring film series.

He is an entertaining story teller and in Ihis 48-  minutc piece, intercut with  home movies, he engages his  audience with tales of his childhood and his experiences wiih  Diamond, drugs and guns.
