Il's been over 40 years since  the lasl of Ihe Tsoh-nye moved  Iheir homes from   __________  litis wilderness  into the growing  town of Sechelt  and Ihe years of  neglect have left  Iheir iniiik on the  once pristine enviionmeni.  Amongst  the   ______  flowering branches, the moss-covered Irees and  the unkempt grass, rusted gasoline and propane lanks stand. A  garbage bag of cans left over  from a logging camp, the twisted wreckage of a truck, and a  ramshackle collection of wood  buildings leave telltale signs of  lhe infringement of the 20th  centuiy.  Yel, for the members of lhe  band, standing amid the modernity, it's as if lime has stood  slill for hundreds of years.  The sounds of the wind  through lhe trees and the water  lapping on the shores bring  thoughts of early days when the  sile provided a rich livelihood  for lhe Tsoh-nye.  ','ll_. .like  coming  home," says a wislful John  Robson, glancing about him at  Here ou the land  of their  forefathers, they  say a change has  come over them  the peaceful surroundings.  At 16, Ihis is fust Irip Rob-  son has made lo lhe place  where his grandparents had  lived. He didn't come here  strictly by choice.  Robson's part of a group of  six Native boys, ranging in age  from 12 lo 18, who reluctantly  agreed lo leave Iheir Sechell  homes to come lo what he       thought  was  a  "BBC - lhe Bad  Boys Camp."  Back in town,  Robson and Ihe  other boys don'l  experience much  of the old ways.  They're con-  ______   sidered by Iheir  leachers, parents  and counsellors to be "youths at  risk".  All have trouble in school  and have either quit or been  expelled. All have problems  with controlling Iheir tempers  and language. All, wilh the  exception of Ihe youngest, have  experimented heavily with  alcohol and drugs and have  been in trouble with the law.  But here on Ihe land of their  forefathers, Ihey say a change  has conic over them.  "I'm going to quit drugs and  alcohol, that's one change,"  says Robson. His friend, 16-  year-old Kirby Jackson, adds:  "Yeah, and go back lo school...  that's important."  back-... - Wn taken the boys only dine  days to draw these conclusions.

The official cause of lite crash has noi yel  been determined, bul a Transport Canada  investigator said lasl week thai low cloud  cover over the hills jusl cast of lhe airport  was likely responsible.  But without any weather reporting al the  airport, pilots like Symons regularly "have lo  form our own conclusions," said Jack  (Blackie) Apsouris of Coast Western Airlines.  For related story,  see page 3  "I would like to see some regular observations," he said. "That is something we desperately need here."  In a case like the crash on Saturday, "it  doesn't matter whether he had 700 hours or  7,000 hours (experience)," said Apsouris,  because weather patterns on the Coast  change so quickly. "Here you can go when  it's good and IS minutes later it's bad."  Most recently, a long-time caretaker at  the airport who gave unofficial radio weath  er reports to pilots approaching Sechelt also  left his position, after his request for a larger  stipend was rejected by the airport committee.  In Ihe past, the caretaker had watched  over the airport in exchange for free accommodation and utilities, said Joyce Kolibas, a  member of Ihe committee, but there was no  money for any extra payment.  "He may have done (weather reporting)  but it certainly wasn't included in his  required duties," said Kolibas. "If someone  wants to land here it's up lo Ihem." Friends  and students of Symons said bad weather  had recently been frustrating for pilots.  turn lo page 2  Storm  brewing  around  Lindome  The deadline has come and  gone for Sechelt's Dohrn Bosch  to have done something about  his non-complying Lindome  and now council is preparing lo  lake action.  But councillors aren't saying  what that action is. "Mr. Bosch  is now in contempt of court,"  said municipal clerk Michael  Vaughan, "and council is proceeding to enforce the building  permit requirements ... We've  sent Mr. Bosch a letter stating  as much."  Bosch erected the plastic  dome structure at his business,  Tideline Marine, a year ago  without a building permit.  Sechelt took him to court and  last month he was ordered to  upgrade the structure to building permit standards, which he  has yet to do. He has, however  appealed the Supreme Court  decision. "I don't know what's  going to happen next," Bosch  said. "But If they try to take it  down there's going to be some  assault charges laid."  After Ihe party ... Ihe Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce Trade Fair is looking lo grow, see page 8.  Recycling figures  don't add up: SCRD  by Jane Seyd  A report card on recycling  issued by Ihe provincial governmenl Ihis week has pul Ihe Sunshine Coasl al lhe bottom of the  class.  Using figures collected fur  1990 and 1991 wasle management, Ihe report puts the Coasl  (along with one olher area) at  Ihe bottom of a list of 28 regional districts province-wide, with  a figure of zero recycling for  1991, down from one per cenl  in I990.  By comparison, recycling  province-wide wenl from three  per cent to 14 per cent during  that time period, with some  regions recycling between 16  und 25 per cent of their municipal waste.  But meanwhile, local politicians and recyclers say Ihe  province's figures aren't accurate. And even the Ministry of  Environment's own staff admit  Ihe measurements are only eslimales thai aren't necessarily  equivalent between different  regions. "It doesn't make sense  to us," said Dave Crosby, assistant works superintendent for  the regional district.  According to Bernard  McGrath, president of Ihe  SCRAPS recycling group, Ihe  Gibsons depot recycles an average of one tonne a day: over  350 tonnes a year. Yel according to the provincial report, only  about 80 tonnes were recycled  in 1991,  "Obviously Ihose figures are  wrong," said director Jim Gurney, chair of Ihe public utilities  committee. "We don'l have zero  recycling."  Gill Coellner, of the municipal wasle reduction branch in  Victoria, said it was "unfortunate" all information wasn't  included in the report and added  that in future the government  will be checking back and correcting mistakes.  Meanwhile, he said it's up to  each region to come up with a  recycling plan which works for  that community. In many areas  of lhe province, waste management is still "pretty primitive,"  he commented.  According to the provincial  report card, 31,726 tonnes of  garbage - or 1,526 kilograms  per person - went into Sunshine  Coast landfills in 1991.  Pender  probing  artificial  reef  options  by Jane Seyd  Five months after the  destroyer Chaudiere was sunk  as a diving attraction off  Kunechin Point over the  protests of the Sechelt Indian  Band, Ihe idea of additional artificial reefs for the Sunshine  Coast is resurfacing.  Although lalks are still in the  preliminary stages, members of  the Pender Harbour Chamber of  Commerce have spoken to the  Artificial Reef Society about (he  possibility of getting another  diving attraction for Iheir area,  says Larry Curtiss of Lowe's  Resort.  Meanwhile the Sechelt Indian Band has already said il will  fight the proposal.  Curtiss says Pender Harbour  businesses have been interested  in getting a reef from before Ihe  lime the Chaudiere went down  in Sechelt Inlet, to help lourisl  operators during (lie slow winter  season.  Sites are being considered up  Agamemnon Channel, in Jervis  Inlet or near Nelson Island, he  says, and ihere are two potential  boats in mind - neither one as  big as the Chaudiere.  He added before anything  happens, the chamber will also  have lo drum up community  interest.  Meanwhile, the Sechelt Indian Band has vowed lhat moves  to bring another artificial reef  into their traditional waters -  which extend up Jervis Inlet and  over lo Texada Island - will be  met wilh strong resistance.  "The band is already dead set  against another ship in our territorial waters," said band chief  Garry Feschuk. "We don't feel  our territory should be a graveyard for ships."  Earlier in the week, Ihe subject of artificial reefs was also a  topic al a meeting of the Foreshore Advisory Task Force,  which has said it will oppose  attempts to close the area  around the Chaudiere to fishing  or boat traffic.  Jay Straith, president of the  Artificial Reef Society, said  ihere have been some earlier  safety concerns about the mix  of boats and divers at the site.  "People would go roaring  tight through there when there  were obviously divers out  Ihere."  He said the society would  like lo see a ban on fishing  within 100 feet each side of Ihe  reef lo protect the maiine life it  is meant to promote. "You don't  want lo close up the whole  bay."  Feschuk said so far Ihe hand  hasn't been approached aboul  an additional reef by either Ihe  Pender Harbour Chamber of  Commerce or Ihe Artificial Reef  Society, bul added band councillors have heard of Ihe idea.  "Our band feels insulted thai  they're even trying to bring  another ship up."  Jane Reid, regional director  for Ihe area, says so far she  hasn't been approached about  the plan, bul adds "1 suspect  there would be a lol of opposition to it." Reid - who voted in  favour of supporting the  Chaudiere sinking - said her  support for a Pender Harbour  reef would depend on "where  and what" as well as community feeling.  Meanwhile Straith says there  will have to be bolh local governmenl and communily support before the projecl goes any  further.  Said Feschuk, "I hope they  realize this time we're part of  the communily."  _____________  ____ ���_.UdM Mcna,   rwtii *.\j,  NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE  From the head of the Gibsons side  government dock to the Keats Island  Baptist Camp property line.

"Wc really didn't progress very far," said  chair Harry Miller of the Ministry of Forests,  At issue are major differences between  the forest companies and the regional disltict  over logging in lhe "walcrshcd retention"  zone, including Ihe higli-elevalion mountain  hemlock forest und water catchment area.

Are you working? According  lo Statistics Canada, authors of  the Census, not only are you not  working, but if you have never  held a paid position, you have  never worked a day in your life.  Lasl Salurday, Barbara faille  und Matin Abbott, bolh members of Vancouver Island's  Voices of Canadian Women for  Peace, held an information seminar in Sechelt sponsored in part  by Community Services, to  raise awareness of Ihe issues  surrounding "unwaged work,"  which is primarily done by  women.  According to Little, the lack  of recognition of unwaged work  as work, created Ihe economic  illusion lhal "women do not  work, Ihey ore unproductive and  unoccupied. What we do has no  economic value, because housework cannot be observed by  economists, therefore il is of  negligible value."  Little contended thai the vast  amount of unwaged work done  primarily by women, supports  the GNP. "Work whether or not  il is waged work, is part of the  productivity of lhe country. We  have a standard of living, and  women have made this possible.  We should be allowed to share  the wealth we have helped to  create, a pension or payment for  women with children is not  charily. It is a right."  Abbot and Little displayed a  graph which identified more  than 50 per cent of the productivity in Canada as being  "unwaged" work. Abbott said.  "We are noi talking about wage  equity here, we are talking  aboul recognition of unwaged  work as the work it is. These are  political decisions."  One of ways Abbott and Little hope to alter the political  process is by asking Census  Canada to redesign its form by  recognizing unwaged work as  work. The current Census form  does not recognize volunteer  work, home maintenance,  unpaid child care, or housework  as work. Work is defined as  "marketplace labour".  About 25 local women  attended the seminar. Abbolt  and Little are hoping thai  women across the country will  participate in a "non-consuming  boycott", of goods and services,  in order to gain greater recognition for unwaged work.

Owen, as chairman of the Commission on Resources  and the Environment, has distanced himself from the  decision to allow logging in two-thirds of the temperate  rainforest off the West Coast of Vancouver Island, saying  that although he appeared at the press conference  announcing the news, he was not party to the decision  itself and now regrets attending the announcement.  The government's precipitous decision on the Clayoquot threatens to undermine Ihe whole CORE process as  environmenlal groups which have been participating in  the discussions withdraw in protest at the NDP's willing  ness to see one of the province's most contentious areas  excluded.  Aside from the NDP's lack of political commitment  surrounding the Clayoquot decision, ushered in alongside  the threat of imminent lay-offs in MacMillan Bloedel's  Kennedy Lake division, there lies the burning question of  conflict of interest.  It is to this that Owen has addressed the need for an  independent inquiry into the government's actions. The  fate of one of the largest remaining tracts of temperate  rainforest in lhe world is being decided by a government  which six weeks earlier bought 2.1 million MacMillan  Bloedel shares.  The raised eyebrows of Cabinet ministers to Owen's  request for an independent review are another indication  of the gulf that appears to be growing between the NDP's  policy platforms prior to the 1991 election and its record  since.  The perceptions of conflict, in the public eye blatant  and inescapable, seem to blur once politicians arc eyeing  the inner sanctums of power. So far, all Forests Minister  Dan Miller has said is that Cabinet will study Owen's recommendations.  He and his colleagues may study lo their hearts' content, but no amount of doublespeak or expensive advertising (such as the costly campaign the NDP has just  embarked upon to sell its budget) will wash if the government has designs on retaining its rapidly dwindling credibility.  The appearance of conflict can be more troublesome  than conflict itself. It will linger to haunt the NDP if it  now refuses lo have ils forestry investments scrutinized  by an independent body.

First a report from BC Ferries with some statistics  alleging that passengers recently surveyed say they  would support increased lares to maintain existing service.  Then, wham bam, a hike in fares.  Simple. Phrase your question the right way, plug in the  results to match your plans, then proceed forthwith.  The fare hike, announcing (he introduction of seasonal  rates, conies with the wonderful little twist lhat there will,  in fact, be a fate reduction during lhe low season.  It's supposed to look like a trade off, But it's not.  The seasonal rates do not fairly account for the needs  of residents who depend on the ferry service year round,  and who already subsidize the service through taxation.

In fact,  there was not a decision made to  ask the press lo leave al any  time during the meeting of April  6. Naturally, those opposed  would be disgruntled. However,  I had numerous calls from members outraged al your editorial  attack.  It is precisely this type of  misinformation lhat wc fell  needed to be avoided.

ALICE ALBRECIIT  Association chair  Marine plan shows  lack of respect  Now that a small group of  natives have decided to build a  marina condo development on  one of lhe Coasl's few estuaries,  I think it's time these natives be  called on their total lack of  respect for the earth.

These planls do, however,  use massive amounts of electricity and chlorine in Iheir operation. There are land based  sewage disposal methods that  remove virtually all toxic substances as well as disease using  wetlands, duckweed and bull-  rushes producing tertiary quality  effluent - all without chlorine or  massive amounts of electricity.

The picture of  Gemma Vandermeer from llie  palette of Darah Hansen captured me, descriptive prose of a  remarkably simple life.  It seems, however, thai simplicity is only skin deep. In a  world where, as Gemma says  'fallcr-of-maclly', "everything is  new, everything clean, everything malching, everything  white...so much waste...I hate  it."  This woman is on the right  track. Her example of low  impact existence has given me  new incentive to simplify my  life. I hereby announce my  intention to join Gemma in pursuit of her goal..."I just want lo  save the world, that's all."  Join us!  BOB NORDOFF  There must be zero tolerance for religious violence  The shooting of a doctor outside an abortion  clinic in Pensacola, Florida, recently puts a chilling  new aspect on the debate about abortion.  The details of the killing are particularly repugnant. Dr. David Gunn. crippled from polio and able  to get about only with the aid of a cane, wis shot  three times in the back as he got out of his car. His  killer, according to his wife, was frequently violent  and had many times threatened both her and her  two children.  Even more chilling than the cold-blooded  assassination is the lack of critical response from  the leadership of evangelical churches who have  been in the forefront of the so-called pro-life  movement. The leader of the Rescue America  movement of which killer David Griffin was a  member called the killing 'unfortunate', but said if  it hadn't Uken place a dozen babies' would have  died that day.  There is no way to interpret that comment other  than as thinly disguised approval.  Nor, as this is being written, has there been  condemnatory response from the great names of  right-wing evangelism. Pat Robertson, Oral  Roberts, Billy Graham are men who have risen to  prominence and wealth leading the evangelical  movement.  They now appear to be giving respectability to  some seriously alienated folks whose anti-social  musings  john burnside  violence is clothed in the respectability of the  gospel.  One doesn't have to be steeped in the Scriptures to know that one of the Ten Commandments  is Thou Shalt Not Kill. The spiritual leaders of  those who proclaim their fervour for Jesus Christ  should be making plain in every town and hamlet  in North America that they do not condone violent  vigilantism as part of their system of beliefs.  Any failure to do so is entirely unacceptable.  And mere Up service will not do. There must be a  real commitment on the part of Robertson, Graham, and all the way down through the evangelical  movement to speak out against the murder of Dr.  Gunn and any like action.  In older nations than the United States of  America, there has long been a separation of  church and state. There is very good reason for  this. There has been much slaughter and bigotry on  the parts of various religious groups when they  won to the power of government. Nor was any one  group the villain; Protestants slaughtered  Catholics with as much abandon as Catholics  slaughtered Protestants.  Keeping church and suite separate helped eliminate religious violence since the power of the state  couldn't then be used to butcher the government's  religious foes.  If there is such a separation in America it is difficult to spot. Pat Robertson has already run for  President and his forces of right-wing evangelism  were much in evidence at the Republican National  Convention held last August to nominate George  Bush for President of die United States of America.  At local levels, too, the evangelists have been  working at fever pitch to get control of school  boards everywhere. There are 'colleges' set up  throughout the American Southwest to teach candidates for local office how to go about the business of getting elected and getting control of local  government whilst keeping their radical religious  views somewhat concealed.  The first thing that should happen is that if  organized religion in an organized way is going to  try to seize control of the apparatus of government,  large and small, then surely their tax-free status  should be looked at closely. The purpose of the  tax-free status is to promote the spiritual life; if its  financial benefits are being used to finance a  power grab then they should be removed.  If you want to contest for political power then  you should be expected to pay political taxes. Not  to implement that policy puts other power-seekers  at an unfair disadvantage.  We would be well advised not to treat lightly  this rise of violence in the religious movements of  our time. Muslim fundamentalists are struggling  for control of several Middle East countries and  they have long espoused terrorism as a means of  achieving their ends. Hindus and Moslems are  slaughtering each other in India  If you want to conceive of a political international nightmare of gruesome perspective imagine  the followers of Pat Robertson aligned against the  forces of the late Ayatollah Khomenei, each armed  with the ultimate weapons of destruction and each  fanatically assured of their righteousness and the  heaven that awaits them after they have destroyed  life on earth.  If the leaders of the evangelical right will not  denounce the violence they are engendering, then  our political leadership must have the courage to  make plain that the tax-free sums will be removed  from any organization condoning violence or seeking political power the better to enforce its belief  systems on others.

If you gel up early enough,  and I am not suggesting you  don't, you can catch international rugby (rugger) on TSN. This  is likely lo be for you, as for me,  a game you don't know, but it  only takes a moment to see that  the ones wilh the red shirts are  trying to run the ball through the  ones with the blue shirts and get  it lo a goal at Iheir end of the  field, as in hockey or warfare.  Some of lhe stuff (scrams for  example) may look a bil exotic,  bul il has lo be simple because  there arc practically no penalties.  Il is a lively scene. There is  almosl constant running and  passing and open Held tackling,  and there is earnest endeavour  on almost every face If you turn  up lhe sound, though, you find a  conlrasl in the commentary.  The oilier morning Ihere was  ti game between the Fiji Islands  and Wesl Samoa, all just out  there in our Pacific. A small  Fijian was making a spectacular  run and the commentator was  saying: "Miiimm.l don't think  they're going to slop him ... he  is a vety quick man ... no, Ihere  he is, right between the posts."  The Fijian had run 100 metres  right through lhe whole Samoan  learn.  Add lo this (he fact lhat no  Fijians leaped up and down as if  suddenly demented and you  may be starting the day thinking  that the difference here is mainly just a matter of style.  Follow it, as I did, with a  quote on the news from Kim  Campbell that, "It's not what  you're going to do but the way  you're going to do it," and you  can And yourself drawn into a  heavily booby-trapped area,  usually given the widest possible berth, the question of comparative styles.  They say you can tell a man  that his political views are a  crock of ordure, but you can't  tell him not to wear white socks  with a blue suit. Style is a very  sensitive thing.  You can tell a writer that his  latest plot is Ihe most disgusting  you have ever seen, but you  can't tell him that he writes like  someone doing a grade It) composition. Style is for sure an elusive kind of a thing.  In the old New York Sun (I  think) they had seven columnists on the one op-ed page, and  despite Ihe fact that most of  litem regularly had lunch together they were all very different  lypes indeed, and happily  bashed away al each other daily  on the page. The difference was,  of course, mainly a mailer of  style and not one of them would  have stood for the editorial  dropping of so much as a  comma.  in a nutshell  Fit-Rite Blinds  50% off Mini Blinds  40% off Verticals  For appointment call Calhy Rumball  886-8445  It has been said that people  who live on the flank of Mount  Elphinstone here tend to stand a  little sideways.  I have not noticed this, but  then I may be standing a little  sideways myself. Style disappears as style when everybody's  doing it. Immediately, then,  something else will come along.  How else to explain bell-bottom  trousers, Iroquois haircuts, etc.  Rock was not a musical progression.  So here wc are, and would  you say we have some suit of a  style? The Irees, the mountains  and the sea are pretty good  dampers on the sillier style  notions. But then think of California. I would say thai here on  lhe Sunshine Coast we are  remarkably free of the style  bugs thai lake over elsewhere. A  style of not having a style, right?  Mackenzie King, our prime  minister for many, many years  and noi really a bad old toad,  was a man with almost no style  whatever.  stuart nutter  He played this implacably  and quite consciously, I'm sure,  as a means of baffling Ihe  media, and the media it would  seem were pretty well totally  baffled. Here was Ihis little  dumpy character with a hard  collar and a prissy kind of  speech and there was no way he  was not going lo get elected.  He had all sorts of ingredients oul of which he could have  forged a style. He was charming  wilh ladies. He had an almost  lifelong faithful dog. He talked  to the ghosl of his long-dead  mother, almost nightly. But he  persisted in coming on as an  almost faceless prime minister.  Where are you Mackenzie  King when we need you at this  hour? Everything political  seems to be up for grabs, and  Ihe way in seems to be through a  style bit that can catch the nodding populace on the TV.  Would W.L., McK. King  make it today? Can you do it  anti-style? No I would say. Bul  then that is just my style.

MKRRH.I. DIXON  Assessing values  of French choices  Sechelt's Jakob Knaus warrants comment. The disparity  perceived hy Mr. Knaus in federal funding of different French  education programs is explained  by the principle of supply and  demand. French immersion programs arc chosen by lhe families and involve die total educational experience of the students.  The Core or RSL programs  are mandatory for all students in  lhe school districts, arc not easily delivered because of a lack of  teachers and lake up a very  small amount of lhe overall  school lime. The percentage of  sludenis who have a positive  feeling aboul French immersion  is far greater than those who arc  forced lo lake Core French.  Mr. Knaus reports a 75 per  cenl drop-out talc from French  immersion programs. As students progress in school there is  an incredible variely of programs and courses available and  very few of these are offered in  French for immersion students.  There are school districts thai  have not fulfilled their commitment to French immersion students who have enrolled in lhe  programs and these students  have been abandoned due to (he  effects of political decision  making.  lhe besl way lo achieve the  goal's of tfh'iif all pundits of  French learning promote,is lo  offer choices to students so that  they will engage in a positive  learning process, then as taxpayers wc will gel our money's  worth.  MARY FINDLAY  Gibsons  .Science of balancing  watershed interests  The provincial government  recently turned down the application from the Sunshine Const  Regional District requesting  control of lhe Chapman Creek  watershed. On advice from lhe  Ministry of Forests and  Resources such control will  remain in the hands of Ihe  trained staff of this department,  each of whom is the holder of al  least a B.A. degree in his own  discipline, each wilh many years  experience under his bell.  In ils wisdom the government has prevented control of  the valuable and delicate area  from passing into the hands of  the local technocrats - persons  of limited scientific training,  generally in political employ or  well-intentioned academics of  whatever experience.  Thus the local taxpayer is  spared the expense of maintaining a resource outside the mandate of the regional district, wilh  the added benefit of a more balanced and rational outlook on  the shared use of Ihis resource  hy bolh campers and loggers  alike.  While some may protest,  there is every good reason lo log  a watershed if such activity is  controlled by experts. To deny a  livelihood to a forest worker  using untenable arguments is little short of criminal. Those who  establish such a condilion for retraining Ihe displaced workers  and lo make recompense lo the  logging companies deprived of  Iheir legal harvest, for it is hy  such action that the loss has  occurred.  There is slill lots of room for  give and take in the sharing of  our resources including the  Chapman Creek watershed. It is  reassuring to know that the  guiding hands will be Ihose of  experienced, well trained and  qualified scientists, not those of  local political figures who may  or may not be here to answer for  their actions after the next election.

Kyla McDonald photo  "We (the leachers) are participating only for fun, we don't  expect lo win," said teacher and  relay  team  member Linda  Doerkson.  This year's milk run was  organized to raise money to buy  tandem bikes to allow blind bike  riders to participate in the sport.  "The tandem bikes allow for  a sighted rider to ride with a  blind rider in order to direct  them as to where they're going,"  said physical education (PE)  teacher Joan Fox.  Although one and all are considered winners in such an  event, the first team to finish  this varied race was the PE 12  class.  "I think lhal having the relay  is a good idea," said grade 12  student Robin Lendhart. "It  makes people actually want lo  participate."  The milk run seems to be  growing in size and grandeur as  time goes by.  Schizophrenia: a mental disorder  often maligned, misunderstood  by Darah Hansen  Marg de Lange knows first hand how  schizophrenia can devastate a family.  Her own son, now age 28, was first afflicted  with Ihe disease in his early 20s.  She recalled how as a teenager his future was  promising. He was academically successful, athletic, and a talented musician.  She remembered too how he came home from  college one day and "literally went to bed for six  months."  "We had no idea," de Lange said, "It was like  he stopped dead in his tracks."  And then, as quickly as it came, the episode  ended and for the next two years her son again led  a normal life.  Bul in 1991 he began lo deteriorate. He left  home. He got involved with drugs and alcohol. He  lost touch with reality.  In 1991, de Lange's son was diagnosed as a  schizophrenic. He now lives in a group home and  musl lake daily medication.  But for de Lange and her husband, the pain  they've faced since their son's diagnosis is not just  from losing him to the disease.  It comes from the social rejection both he and  his parents face because of lack of understanding  and compassion from the public.  In her role as regional branch development  coordinator for Ihe BC Schizophrenia Society  (BCSS), de Lange teaches people Ihe facts about  george In glbsons  the disease in order to dispel the negative image of  mental illness. And as pari of Ihe group, she offers  support to families trying to cope when a son,  daughter or spouse is stricken with the disease.  Last week she visited Sunshine Coasl schools as  part of the Coast's BCSS branch commitment lo  enlightening the local community.  Her message is clear: schizophrenia is not a  split personality; it is not caused by bad parenting;  it is not cured by psychoanalysis.  Schizophrenia is a mental disorder. A disease  that affects one in eveiy 100 people; in BC there  are 36,000 recorded cases.  People afflicted by the disease often experience  hallucinations including seeing, smelling and hearing things that don't exist in reality. They can be  paranoid.  They can exhibit bizarre, socially inappropriate  behavior.  With medication, Ihose symptoms can be controlled and the person with the disease can live  peacefully in the communily.  In fact, most schizophrenics are not harmful and  are generally considered less violent than "normal"  people due lo the passive and fearful nature of the  disease.  It's de Lange's dream to have people realize  schizophrenics aren't freaks, they are human  beings losl in a disease.  "I have a greal belief lhal Ihe son I raised is slill  there behind the illness," she said.  book review  by George Cooper  Feeling betrayed by her  mother; feeling repulsed and  abandoned, even hunted; fearful  of making mistakes, of being  hopelessly bad; ashamed of her  ugly dirty body; troubled by her  several personalities that  upbraid her unannounced and  often. She lost her childhood -  rather she never found it.  Characteristics like these  mark to one degree or another  each of the author's of the three  books recounting incest that  have come my way this past  year.  White Lies For My Mother  by Liza Potvin is drawn from  the diaries the author kept for 15  years from childhood to young  adulthood. Throughout the book  Potvin calls her mother by the  French Maman, but only refers  to her father as he or him. Her  father is ever the angry menacing figure.  She writes a tight-woven  prose; she uses a wide range of  metaphor and allusion. Through  implication she draws the reader  gradually into the horrors of her  abused childhood and her young  adull years. She finds, for example, a comforting symbolism in  Baum's stories of Oz.  At eight years of age she is  often the housekeeper in Ihe  times of her mother's many illnesses, ever fearful of his anger  should she make a mistake or  forget some detail. About Ihis  time he begins his incestuous  assaults upon her. His ply -  "Your mother does this for me.  Now she's unwell, you can take  her place."  'Her father Is ever  tbe angry  menacing figure'  Always her parents vent their  mean-spiritedness upon her.  Upon her ungainliness, her  stupidness.  At 14 when "her belly has  begun to swell", she is sent off  clutching her teddy bear to a  grandmother's in France. As she  leaves, Maman can only scream  her farewell, "Maudite putainl  You have broughl nothing but  shame on us." And perhaps  what is Mama's greatest white  lie, not a query about who was  the cause of Ihis pregnancy.  Maman's twisted view of  family values and its security  did not allow her lo wonder  what caused her daughter's  often strange behaviour. Nor did  he ever give Maman any oppor-  tunily to receive other views  than his.  He attended every school  interview, for example, and in  the eventual family counselling,  he dominated the sessions and  intimidated the counsellor wilh  "How can we be a family with a  thing like that for a daughter."  When at last she confronts  her mother wilh the facts of her  abuse by him, Ihe mother  shrieks, "Whore. Liar. Are you  trying to ruin my marriage? You  would do anything to get alien-  lion..whey should he want you  when he has me?"  When the daughter, Liza, is  nearly 30 Maman sent a tape,  ostensibly a birthday gift,  "Nothing lhat happens to you is  anyone else's fault but your  own. Even hurtful things...are  violence you've done in a former lifetime." So ends her quest  for Maman's understanding.  Healing begins with the discovery of abuse done lo cousins  and aunts. Tinged with bitter  humour, they call Iheir gatherings "incest reunions" where  "the little girl inside is telling us  lo speak up."  #  NATUREWORKS ���[��,����������kJQA> ��-���"  NiMlon Centre Inc.

Joel Johnstone photos  Pushing the outer edges of  capacity this past  weekend, the Gibsons and  District Chamber of  Commerce Trade Fair is  looking towards expansion  and revision next year.  Based on this year's  demand by both exhibitors  and commentary from visitors, fair coordinator Barbara  Ferret*, says the fair may have  to set up outside as well as  inside the Gibsons Winter  Club curling arena in 1994.  Fifty-three booths  crammed the float-space for  two days as more than 1,100  curious onlookers and shop-  per�� hunting for deals perused  and displays of  local business.  The mood was upbeat and  the atmosphere positive. Says  Ferret: "This year the displays  and people were vibrant and  enthusiastic - up on doing  stuff. I think this year the fair  has come of age.  "Just about every exhibitor  I talked to had major sales or  received orders as a result of  this show and that's why  they're happy."  Examples? How about sale  of two hot tubs, a custom-  made decorative swing, a  $500 chandelier, six requests  for power-vacuum estimates.  As one air ventilation parts  and installation vendor put it:  "A really good opportunity  for people looking to get to  know those of us who ate  selling locally:"  Not everyone was happy  though. Three hopeful last  minute exhibitors had to be  turned away due to lacks**.,  space. Thai's w(-**-4*ai*a*Ms  are lining up now far *Si4.  Twenty have already signed a  provisional registration list  and plans are in the works for  a 'market-type' outdoor exhibit adjacent to the building.  "The curling rink is talking  of leveling a space in back of  the building so we're looking  at the possibility of putting up  a large tent," Ferrett said.  "We can create a market  atmosphere and perhaps  incorporate tbe entertainment  outdoors.Wliat people seem to  really want is a raini-PNE so  maybe next year well drop  the word' trade' and create a  mini-fair."  Much of Ae credit this  year, though, goes to the  ingenuity and contribution of  participants and volunteers  who put the show together.

Vancouver Foundation grant  The grant will be used lo expand the drop-in  program by providing $3,000 to establish a  parenting library in each drop-in site, with  the remainder going lo upgrade equipment,  including Ihe purchase of new small chairs  and tables, and larger play equipment.  "We're very grateful to the Vancouver  Foundalion for giving us this support," Egan  slated lasl week. "They were very interested  in the fact lhal we wanled to develop the  drop-in into more of an information cenlre  for parents.

"This kind of financial assistance really  makes a difference to non-profit societies,"  Holly Lehmann, president of Communily  Services Board, said, "We don'l have anything left over in our operating budget to  make capital purchases, or to spend this kind  of money on upgrading equipment.  "Our society primarily administers the  funding that comes in from various provincial ministries who are very clear about how  we are to spend the money - those funds go  to providing service." Lehmann explained.  "Community and corporate donations  help us beef up our programs, but the costs  of providing quality service seem to increase  at a far greater rate than that of incoming  revenue, so we really appreciate the help the  Vancouver Foundation has given us."  Lehmann staled.  Building project  Communily Services is currently raising  the funds to purchase the Inlet Avenue building it occupies (with Continuing Education)  from the SCRD. This move is being undertaken to maintain the society in its present  home and to develop a community base for  family and children's services.  "Sale of the building would see our rent  increase significantly, and having to move  would mean lhat we would have to scatter  our services," staled Lehmann. "That will  mean enormous costs for separate telephones, photocopiers, clerical support, etc.,  not to mention the tremendous inconvenience that our clients would suffer."  If you would like information about Community Services, where its revenues come  from, and how it spends ils money, plans to  buy the Inlet Avenue building, call executive  director Vicki Dobbyn, or board president  Holly Lehmann at 885-5881, or drop into the  office at 5638 Inlet Avenue, Sechelt Monday  to Friday, 9am to 4 pm.

The gallery is located on the middle floor at the north end of  Gibsons Quay above Molly's Lane Market photo submitted  A personal, intimate family protrait  book review  by Stuart Nutter  Here we have the whole  brave story, not picked at by  anti-hero bias, not bothered by  the very different social values  of the time, not fazed by the  many 'knights of the air' treatments of the past 60 years - the  story straight from letters and  diaries and pictures and close  personal memories.  Some-of us are going to feel,  perhaps, that we already know  this story. The story of the first  extraordinary few years of jousting in the air over Flanders in  WW I has caught and held the  imaginations ever since. Some  of us today may have come at it  in rather odd ways, perhaps  through Snoopy the dog with the  aviator fixation in Peanuts. The  image though slays very strong.  You can hardly see someone  with a helmet and a pair of  glasses on his head without a  There will be few left around these  days who will have personal  memories of this experience'  thought of the Lafayette  Escadrille. A man has only lo  toss a white silk scarf about his  neck and you can wonder if he  sees himself looping and rolling  in a Sopwith Camel.  This book. Gentleman Air  Ace, the Duncan Bell-Irving  Story, is written at a remove of  some 80 years by West Vancouver's Elizabeth O'Kiely about  her father. It is being told at the  edge of where you are telling a  story from personal memories  and where you are going to have  to tell it from what's in the  library. The Bell-Irvings are a  long-established family in BC,  have stayed a close one, and  have kept their memorabilia,  their letters and diaries and pictures intact. O'Kiely has been  able to write this story with a  warmth, humour and detail that  perhaps no other writer could  now find possible.  There will be few left around  these days who will have personal memories of this experience. (I confess that I have won  a pint on a claim to have been in  both wars, but it was a mere  technicality. I was born into  WW1 in London during the last  Zeppelin raid). There will be  many, however, who will have  their better memories of flying  in WWII refreshed by these  closely seen tales form just 25  years before, certainly anyone  with an abiding memory of a  first solo flight in a Tiger Moth.  But this is not a book written  for any special group or interest.  It is an intimate and lively portrait of a family and of a time;  and of Canadians appearing as  Canadians on a European stage.  O'Kiely's approach to this is in  many ways the best we can  have. The family is extensive  and its activities in this time far  flung. There need be little narrowing of the overall scope, yet  all can be told personally, in  immediate experiences and  anecdotes.  The book, published by Harbour Publishing and designed by  Roger Handling at Glassford  Press, is itself a real pleasure.  There are a surprising number of  pictures, with snapshots taken  'in the field', all well reproduced  and placed to give the book an  unusual lift from page to page.

Young .People's Show  The 1993 annual Young  People's Own Show opens this  Wednesday, April 28 at the arts  centre. Preschoolers and students from all over the Coast  have contributed hundreds of  drawings, paintings, collages,  constructions, sculptures, models, and crafts to fill the gallery  with lhe wonderful creations of  young artists.  The arrangement and installation of this show was once  again done by high school students from Pender Harbour,  Chatelech and Elphinstone, as  has been the case for the last  five years.  Groups of students from  each of the three secondary  schools met at the Arts Centre  Monday morning to create the  displays of their own work and  of the elementary and preschool  children's works.  The participation of the  schools in this annual show is  particularly appreciated.  Individual teachers contribute their lime for the selection and labeling of students'  work, making possible an exhibition which includes far more  individual artists than any other,  and also encourages and  demonstrates personal involvement in the arts at receptive  ages.  The work of the Young  Artists Award recipients and  many of those who received  honourable mention will be part  of Ihe exhibition for four weeks  until May 23.  These awards were jointly  sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association,  the Rotary Club of Sechelt and  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council.  Arts centre viewing hours  are 11 aim to 4 pm Wednesday  to Saturday, and 1 pm to 4 pm  Sunday.  Admission is free for all  ages.  ���"--'-���--  m.*..-.iL.i:..i-f-:.-_,��. Coast News, April 26,  1993  13  sports  Colleen Norton of Gibsons won first place in a figure skating  competition in Portland, Oregon. Joel Johnstone photo  sunshine coast golf  Gibsons figure  skater triumphs  internationally  by Marcie White  Colleen Norton of Gibsons  was a fust place finisher in skating competitions held in Oregon  earlier this month.  Norton was one of several  skaters, representing seven BC  clubs, who participated in the  Portland Ice Skating Club  Spring Festival in Clackamus,  Oregon. This international competition, sanctioned by the  USFSA and the CPSA was held  from April I to 4 and featured  skaters from seven states as well  as those from BC.  Norton competed in two  events at the Intermediate  Ladies level - the Light Entertainment Showcase and the Dramatic Showcase. To qualify,  there were no age restrictions  but the skaters must have  attained their Senior Bronze  Freeskate.  A panel of five judges  marked the skaters at this competition. In their marking, they  concentrated on two separate  areas - skating skills and presentation, thus similar to Artistics  in Canada. Under skating skills,  they looked at quality of edges,  power and glide, use of the ice  surface, distribution of highlights, expressive and innovative moves and style. For Ihe  presentation aspect, they looked  for interpretation of music,  development of theme, costuming to fit the theme, use of the  whole body and creativity.  In a group of nine skaters in  lhe Lighl Entertainment Showcase, the 16-year-old Norton  gave her personal best performance of her number.  Skating to polka music, she  played the part of a young girl  who finds an imaginary dancing  partner only to have him disappear each time she features a  highlight in her program.  Colleen skated a superb and  well executed performance as  proven by the first place marks  awarded to her by four out of  five of the judges.  Seventy-four ladies attended the Spring  Luncheon held Tuesday, April 13.  Captain Debbie Sneddon chaired the  meeting.  Members modelled the lovely casual  clothing from The Landing Store located in  Lower Gibsons.  Winner of lite Ruth Boman Award was  Debbie Sneddon, net 37.S; runners-tip were  Linda Evans, net 38.5; first flight, D. Gregory; second, M. Horn; third, P. Hendy. In the  second flight, C.

It  is composed of tbe former districts of Irvine's Landing,  Kleindale, Silver Sands, Half  Moon Bay, Egmont, Sechelt  United ( Howe Sound United,  Port Mellon, and Bowen Island.  For taxation purposes Gambier, Keats, Paisely and the  other West Howe Sound islands  will also be included. On Friday, April 26, a meeting of  school boards and of representatives from those schools having no boards, are to meet at the  Howe Sound United school to  appoint a new school board of  seven to assume office for the  Sechelt district until December.  Of interest to' ratepayers are  the facts that provincial grants  of from 13 to 20 dollars per  pupil will be nude for general  expenses, and that the local  mill rate will almost certainly  be considerably reduced.

The trip will take place May S  to 11 and promises a challenge  for all those participating.  "Students will use and develop the leadership and follower-  ship skills that they learned in  PEI I," says PE teacher Bill  Sluis, who led a similar wilderness outing four years ago.  The 13 students participating  have been preparing since the  beginning of March. Training  has involved compass work and  map reading as well as physical  training. The students will also  prepare and supply their own  equipment and food for the five-  day trek.  The trail is located on the  west coast of Vancouver Island  and stretches from Port Renfrew  to Bamfield.

The bids ranged from  $450,000 lo $840,000.

May 6, 7, 8  886-2237  Enhancing hatchery fish survival rates  by Jane Seytl  The dark green shapes of liny chum  salmon fry dart against the colour of llie  waler in their pen al lite Maclean Bay fish  liulchcry, run by the Sechelt Indian Rand.  In another sea pen nearby, silver flashes  of chinook about a hand's length in size  flash over Ihe surface in a series of arcs as  hatchery manager Sid Quinn losses some  food inio Ihe waler.  Right now, there are more than 500,000  salmon wailing to be released at the hatchery  in mid May, as well as others in incubation  and various slages of growth.  The soon-lo-be-relcased salmon include  18,000 yearling chinook, 450,000 chum -  some of which will be released into local  streams - and 50,000 coho. An additional  35,000 coho from the band's stock will be  released from Chapman hatchery, while  80,000 coho are still in incubation.  This year, says Quinn, the band has tried  an experimental program whereby some of  the local stock have been incubated at the  Capilano hatchery in North Vancouver,  which can provide a better growth environment wilh warmer water.  Usually chinook are released as smolls  after 90 days in fresh water and two weeks  in the sea pen, says Quinn. But this year, Ihe  fish have been held for one year to increase  chances of survival.  The idea of the fish hatchery is to  increase stocks which will be bolh caught in  fisheries and contribute to numbers of  returning adult salmon, says Quinn, adding  thai the band hatchery attempts to duplicate  a natural life cycle as much as possible.  Normally, adull coho and chinook slay  within about a 250-mile radius of the hatchery. Coho take 18 months to reach maturity  while chinook can take between three lo five  years lo complete their migrations.  This year, the hatchery is expecting 1,500  coho and 200 chinook lo return.  Salmon at a variety of growth stages can  be seen at the hatchery from now through  mid May between 9 am and 3 pm daily.  SAY HELLO TO GOOD BUYS!
