Array Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  ^���TSIATIVE UBBAR*    81.1  KJSt building  VICTORIA, B.C.  The Sunshine  25 pi- s.upy on news stands  Delivered to every address on the Coast  October 21, 1980  Volume 34, Number 42  Million dollar 'dowry'  Amalgamation not  shot-gun wedding  by John Moore  The metaphors of marriage were in the air again at the  amalgamation information meeting held at thc Selma Park  Community Hall last Tuesday evening, with Alderman/ Director  Charles Lee referring lo a possible million dollars plus in  1'rovincail "restructuring grants" as a "dowry" and "housekeeping  money" and promising that the proposed amalgamation of parts  of Area C with Ihe village of Sechelt would not be "a shotgun-  marriage".  Recent statements by representatives of the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs have indicated that neither barrel of the  shotgun, proposed "equalization taxes" for fringe areas using the  amenities of adjacent municipalities or the threat of a Ministry-  imposed amalgamation, may be loaded in the case of Area C.  Nevertheless, thc Area C Director and Sechelt Alderman, at  one point brandishing a copy ofthe Municipal Act, repeatedly  pointed out that thc Minister can. if he is so disposed, impose an  amalgamation on so-called "fringe areas" without recourse to  referendum, lee admitted that the instances of such Minister  intervention are "very rare." but said, "It is better that we do it at  our opting, while we can get a million bucks, that wait for the  Minister, if he feels disposed to do it."  Lee also admitted that thc Minister would "lean a little" on thc  question of equalization taxes for an area such as Area C, which is  independent of the adjacent municipality's essential services and  already contributes to such amenities as the municipality  provides.  lee pointed out that the population of Sechelt docs not  presently support its proportionately large commercial core.  "We already pay Sechelt's taxes by buying there," Lee said.  Only a dozen people attended thc meeting, though chairman  and Community Association president Karl Hart pointed out that  there had been a larger turnout the week before when confusion  over the dales resulted in Director I.ee's failure to appear.  In contrast to the audience at the Wilson Creek Community  Assocation meeting held al Davis Bay school the week before, the  Selma Park group appeared less concerned over thc projected  costs of road maintenance after the five-year "honeymoon" period  during which thc province would pick up thc tab.  Nor was thc question of policing costs, once the municipality  reaches a population of live thousand, raised, but residents.were  interested in thc possible extension of the regional board sewer  sysiem. presently serving Sechell only, through Area C to an  outfall off Wilson Creek.  As the meeling progressed, the noisy stove having been turned  off to permit conversation, the marginal insulation of the hall  became apparent and members of the audience demonstrated  considerable interest in Director I.ee's proposal that a portion of  the three years returned Area C taxes, plus provincial grants, be  used to prov ide "much needed community facilities at Selma Park  and Davis Hay."  At one point Community Association president Karl Hart  commented. "This is a selling job'for'. What aboul thc'against".'  "1 begin to feel like I'm Irying lo do a sales job on you."Lee said,  bul went on Ihe state "Here wc have a very simple issue. Do we  want lo be pari of Sechelt or not'.' It's up to you individually to  assess and decide."  "We can't he like King Canute and expect to hold back the sea."  Lee said, referring lo thc inevitability of further development. He  pointed oul lhal the "principal plus" in favour of amalgamation is  lhal as pari of a municipality the people would be "masters of our  own house al last" on planning issues in particular.  "If you will permit mc to express my feelings," Lee said in his  prepared statement, "My continuing opinion of regional boards  in general, is a form of 'push you pull me' under which no local  autonomy is possible, and thus no direct area say is attainable."  Lee went on to describe the concept ofthe regional district as "a  person lurching around on government crutches in a household  which can make no decisions wilhoui consulting wilh seven  neighbours."  Ihe nexl public informalion meeting on the amalgamation  question will be held al 7:1(1 pm. Ilus Wednesday. October 22. al  ihe Senior Citizens Hall in Sechelt.  On water leases  Lands Branch  says no to Sechelt  Sechelt council got an utmvci ihcv didn't like Irom ihe  province's Land Management Branch - no.  But ihcv'll lake another lack to attempt to gain conlrol of land  on all waterfronts within the village.  Alderman Brian Stelck told council lhat in a meeting wilh  1 arry Sorken. regional manager ol the lands branch, he got "an  outright no" when he asked it council could apply to gel  waterfront leases for the entire village.  "II we want total control and want lo put up no trespassing  signs, there's no way we'll get lhal wilh waterfronl leases." Stelck  said.  Stelck says he was told ihe pro\ ince won't entertain thai kind of  step wiih Sechelt hut there is another municipaliiv thai may he  given leases on an experimental basis.  Meanwhile, ihe only other option council could explore is an  application for recreational leases for land on ihe waterfront  which is under provincial jurisdiction and within Sechelt's  boundaries,  Stelck savs lhat ihe necessary recreational applications would  he sent lo council from ihe Vancouver lands office.  Mav or Bud Koch savs he wants council load on this option as  soon as possible and although there's no guarantee lhat the  applications would he granted, "we want to he first to do it."  *_*-T~- _J_^ ��� <T    --'--ii'-i sC  ���'       /.  ���</?*."' wV    ���*a"ffij-r-_'       l      '  ���''"      ���'  Clark Dougal of Boyle Road checks over a black hear which had been responsible for the loss of his livestock.  Wounded bear livestock culprit  by Ian Corrance  One of thc culprits in thc loss of livestock and feed at the Dougal  property on Boyle Road on the outskirts of Gibsons was a black  bear. Thc olher guilty party was thc human who shot il with a  small caliber gun and allowed it to escape wounded.  By Sunday October 11, the Dougals had lost several sacks of  feed, two piglets, two turkeys and several chickens. The  Conservation Officer sel a trap on Sunday evening and captured a  seven year old male black bear lhal night. The bear was  dispatched the following morning and the carcass was examined.  Mulligan seeks  to block lease  A former regional board director is drawing up a petition and  looking for public support to block an application for a foreshore  lease in the Soames area by a Vancouver firm.  Bernie Mulligan says he's seen an application by John  Mcintosh Bird and Gordon Bromley Holdings Lid., of  Vancouver, for foreshore rights to properly known to local  residents as the Soames Estate.  It's the property which by referendum lasl year was rejected for  use as a park, he says.  "I'm going to be putting a petition together to be presented to  the provinces' Land Management Branch and the SCRD hoard to  fight the application." he says.  Input urged on  foreshore leases  As a result of Ihe special meeting with Larry Sorken of the  Provincial Lands Branch lasl Wednesday. Joe Harrison,  chairman of thc regional board's Water Lot Lease Committee, is  requesting input from thc local public to be used lo establish  "guidelines and priorities" governing thc graining of water lot  leases on the Sunshine Coast.  Submissions should be in writing, addressed lo Joe Harrison,  Chairman, Waler Lol Lease Committee, c o Sunshine Coast  Regional District. Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0, before October 31.  IWO.  Harrison stressed lhat the shon lime allowed lor written  submissions is not an attempt lo limit public input, bin is  necessitated by the number of water lol lease applications now  pending and Ihe need lo have guidelines in place as soon ;is  possible.  "We want lo get as much public input as possible." Harrison  told Ihe CoasI News. Harrison said lhal members of the public  who wish lo address ihe board in person on ihe subject ��l  foreshore leases would not be held snictlv io ihe October 31  deadline, but should contact the regional board off ice and arrange  lo be pul on the agenda of a board meeting as soon as possible.  Harrison and Area C Alternate Director Homer Glass will  condense Ihe results ol public input inlo a sel ot guidelines to he  presented io ihe regional board lor comment and approval, then  forwarded to the Lands Branch to be used as ihe basis on which  waler lol lease applications in ihis area will he considered.  Harrison told the Coast News lhal ihe overwhelming public  reaction he has observed is lhal "people don'l like lo see the  waterfronl alienated".  Harrison pointed out the importance ol preserving thc  waterfronl for public recreational use wherever possible and ol  retaining water space and access lo the waterfront lor people who  make their living on the water, fishermen and beachcombers and  iheir support services m particular.  At ihis time of year it is normal for a healthy bear lo have  between lour and five inches of fai. The captured bear had almost  no fal on ils body, l-'urthei examination showed thc reason for  this. Iwo .22 bullets were found lodged in thc shoulder. The  wounds had covered over, bul the Conservation Officer felt that  the shois were causing thc bear considerable discomfort. He said,  "Il was ilie most bad-tempered bear I have encountered."  i'lc Icli lhat an animal with this type of wound would experience  greal discomfort while foraging for ils normal food and would  therefore become opportunistic.  lack Bourne's band from Vancouver supplied the music during  Ihe happy hour al the Pender Harbour Lions Oktoberfest on  Saturday evening  Change in bars  One liquor premise bus changed ownership and another bus reopened on Ihe Sunshine Coast (his week.

I he Canadian Council on Hospital Accreditation is sponsored  hy thc Canadian Hospital Association, Canadian Hospital  Medical Association, I he Royal Canadian College of Physicians  and Surgeons of Canada and Ihe Canadian Nurses Association.  Participation in the accreditation process is voluntary. The  thoroughness ofthe inspection and the detailed documentation  which must he submitted lor examination is the best measure of its  value.

The  hospital is very successful in meeting thc needs of a growing  community. Ihe facility is first class.

Justice Cor the West  It now seems almost certain lhal when,  at last, the liberal Government elected in  February brings down us hrsi budgci there  will be taxes announced on natural gas  exports from Alberta and British Columbia.  Ihe Prime Minister seems quite intent  on assessing such taxes regardless ol whal  un moil ihis raises in Ihe breasts of Premier  Lougheed of Alberta and Premier Bennett  ol British Columbia, lhat Ihe Prime  Minister is within his legal rights in  imposing such taxes seems quite clear and  his determination to do so is understandable in view of the horrendous deficit  position twelve years of the Greal  Dilettante's rule have brought lo Canada.  It must be apparent to us all whatever  our political leanings that something  should be done swiftly to reduce ihe federal  deficit and if ihe Liberals finally bring  down a budget which is not markedly  different than lhat on which they defeated  the Conservatives last February who  among us can truthfully be surprised.  Cynical   flip-flops  in  policy  have  been  commonplace throughout the reign of  King Pierre and hiscourl ofjaded Liberals.  li is possible, then, ihai the country can  survive the imposition ol a federal lax on  natural gas export though one or other of  the Western premiers mav dicol apoplexy  as a result. II. however, such a tax is  imposed on Alberta and Mulish Columbia  and nol matched bv a similar lax on the  exports of hydro-electric energy from  Quebec and Ontario every Canadian wesl  of Rainy River has every right lo rise and  bay al Ihe moon. If taxes on energy exports  must he imposed lo rectify Liberal  mismanagement of the economy they had  besl nol exempt thc Liberal strongholds in  the easl from such taxes.  It is by no means sure that the fabric of  the country could endure any further  blatant and cynical political expedience on  thc part ol this government nor should the  West be called upon lo endure an  intensification of the economic injustices  perpetrated against them on behalf of  Central Canada for ihe past several  generations.  Sunday shopping decision desirable  It is good to see both village councils  moving this fall to clear up any possible  confusion which may be caused when the  Holiday Shopping Act goes inlo effect in  January. I he prompt holding of referenda  in both villages should have the matter  clearly settled before the new law comes  inlo effect.  We have gone on record previously as  favouring thc Sunday openings for any  business on Sunday which wants to be  open thereby solving Ihe problem once and  for all. Whether or not to open for business  on a Sunday should be left to the discretion  of ihe individual merchants. It is quite  simply hypocrisy to deny the right to do  business lo thc small businessmen when  hockey players and football players can ply  their trade on any day of the week deemed  convenient lo them. It is also true thai  there are religious minorities within Ihe  province. Jews and Seventh Day Advcn-  lists for example, for whom Sunday is not  the Sabbath.  By supporting blanket referenda to  allow anyone who wishes lo do business lo  do so, we could be avoiding future hornets  nests of disquietude. The importance of thc  small business men lo thc health of his  community is considerable and most' of  them need as little as possible placed in  their way hy government legislation. Ihe  odds arc stacked against them as il is.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  A fire in the early hours of Thursday  morning this week totally destroyed  the Wilson Creek shake mill. The fire,  which caused an estimated $70,000  damage to the building, began in the  storage area at the front of the mill.  Sechelt RCMP are investigating and  the possibility of arson has not been  ruled out.  Gibsons council issued a public  statement saying it will not be involved  in public rebuttals through the news  media. The statement followed a letter  to the Editor of the Coast News, asking  that the council provide "more factual  reasons on the need for the village to  expand its boundaries."  TEN YEARS AGO  One thousand, three hundred and  forty visitors to the Sunshine Coast  were welcomed at the Tourist Booth at  the Sunnycrest Mall, open for its lirst  season The booth was open for 530  hours between June 19 and September  2 and by lar the greatest number ol  visitors were from points within the  province The international scene was  well represented, with visitors Irom the  Netherlands. West Indies. Italy. France  and Switzerland.  Teachers on the Sunshine Coast,  like teachers all over the province,  were considering strike action to back  demands for pension plan improvements John Burnside. president of the  Sechelt Teachers Association, said  teachers are absolutely determined to  win pension improvements this year.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  One hundred persons attended  the Sunshine Coast Indian Tribal  banquet, ending a day-long conference which attracted prepresen-  tatives from the Gulf of Georgia area  and Squamish-Capilano bands.  The search continued for traces of a  lost plane carrying four Vancouver  men, thought to have lost their lives  during a crash in bad weather somewhere between Gibsons and Sechelt.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Approval was received from the B.C.  Hospital Insurance Service to conduct  a plebiscite to authorize the formation  of a Hospital Improvement District.  The formation of this district, which  would coincide generally with School  District 46, will provide the means for  raising the communities share of funds  necessary to build a new hospital.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  A second ferry was announced for  the Horseshoe Bay-Gibsons Black Ball  Ferries' run this week. The steam  vehicle and passenger ferry "Scotian"  will join the MV Bainbridge. now  serving the route, as soon as it  completes its journey from Halifax to  the British Columbia coast via the  Panama Canal.

It seems my friend and his  wife were invited out to an  evening of home-made television shows. Thc host,  apparently a pudgy, balding,  flamboyant, peanut butter  salesman in his mid-fifties,  had been through it all, model  trains, pool tables, air hockey,  Atari TV games, a sauna bath  and iwo hoi tubs. His attic and  basemenl were treasure  troves of the anthropology of  late twentieth century man.

He had met her at  a peanut butter convention in  Augusta, Georgia and had  snuffed out a promising career  as a manicurist by marrying  her and bringing her back to  Vancouver. My friend commented later that it was  ironic that the only part of her  anatomy he didn't see that  evening was her fingernails.  Her entrance, as described to  mc, was impressive. She  swept down the spiral staircase decked out in a mink  apron that was obviously not  intended for the kitchen.  It didn't take a great deal of  time for my friend to detect  the fact that that was the  extent of her attire. The fact  was she was as naked as a  jay except for the apron which  only jusi managed to cover up  those parts of a person you  don't normally see on first  acquaintance.  "We certainly hope you  enjoy the little TV movies  we've made." the host leered.  "Conic on in lo thc television room and take a look."  As ingenuous as my friend  is, he was beginning to  become aware of thc fact that  these video tapes were not  likely to contain scenes of ihe  kids eating ice cream or the  old man polishing his new car.  I feel sure lhat the secondhand description of Ihe next  Iwo and a half hours of homemade television pales in  comparison to the reality.  My friend, who is of a literary  persuasion, attempted to summarize by suggesting that  while thin on plot, the 26 inch  screen revealed a lot of the  characters, and in living  colour. He did express some  apprehension about the wisdom of barbequing steaks  while stark naked but pointed  oul lhat he considered it  prudent thai the pair wore  running shoes while chasing  each olher around the house.  As far as production quality  was concerned, my narrator  was critical of the bedroom  scenes as being somewhal  contrived, if not bizarre,  bul thai the show stopper on  the living room floor was  really quite tastefully done.  The whole experience has  obviously shaken my poor  friend. He says he's been  afraid to turn on his TV for the  past two weeks and that his  wife has taken to hooking  rugs. He further hinted thai  he has taken up reading and  lhat the last time he and his  wife made love they checked  ihe bedroom first for hidden  cameras.  Please turn lo Page Three.

That's where I've been staying. I want to change my  clothes and talk to her for  a minute. Also I'll pick up my  wedding ring. Make it easier  for us to register. Some of  those better class joints are  picky."  "You're married eh?" 1  say, trying to sound casual. I  should have guessed she was.  A lady of her obvious attributes was almost bound  to have strings attached.  1 have visions of apoplectic  husbands brandishing guns.  Carlotta reads my mind.

Like  the cat says in the song:  You got to snatch and grab  it before it gets away."  She hums a couple of bars.  "Come on, let's blow this  place."  We grab a streetcar to the  suburbs and she leads me to  a shabby, two-storey frame  house beside a vacant lot.  I follow her inside somewhat  nervously. The aunt comes out  of the kitchen wearing a  peevish look. There is no  lamily resemblance. She is  stringy-haired) horse-faced  and generally resembles a  nasty Latin teacher I once  suffered under. "Where the  hell have you been?" she  demands of Carlotta and  fetches me a glare of open  rancour. I feel highly uncomfortable and wish 1 hadn't  come.  Carlotta doesn't bother to  introduce us. "Just grab a  seat, honey," she says "and  don'l pay any attention to her.  I won't be long." She heads  upstairs and shortly, the  woman follows her, without  giving me a second glance.  I can hear the sounds of a  heated argument. The words  "tramp" and "immoral slut"  are countered by things like  "frigid, dried-up old bitch."  I cringe with embarrassment.  Filially, I hear something that  sounds like a slap. The aunt  comes back down the stairs  again, stony-faced and disappears into the kitchen.  Carlotta follows shortly after,  wearing a red dress with a  white shorty-coat and carrying  a small, overnight bag.  "Sorry about that, sweets,"  she says. "It's all straightened out now. We'll get the  hell out of here." I'm only  too willing.  Wc head back towards the  siteetcar-loop. "That silly old  broad" she says. "Christ, I've  laid plenty of bucks on her  since I came and still she gives  me a hard time. She thinks  Ihis is still the Victoria age  or something. Figures I should  go back with my husband and  love, honour and obey the  sonofabitch. She was even  trying to blame me for her  brother being on the sauce.  Anyway, I pieced her off  with a few more dollars for her  mortgage-payment.  With this small trauma  behind us, things between  Carlotta and me shift back  towards the amorous. Back  downtown, an idea strikes me.  "Hey, I hocked my record-  player the last time I was  down. Maybe I should pick  it up?"  "Sure, baby. We can make  love to music." She gives  me that sexy look again. We  stop by the pawn-shop. I  redeem the portable and the  few albums I have left with  it. "Don't imagine you've  got any mambo there?"  "Afraid not" I admit.  "Mostly Kay Starr, Louis  Armstrong, Frankie Laine -  stuff like that."  "Well, what say we pick up  a Perez Prado disc.  We get the record  she wants, secure a bottle  of whisky and repair to the  Abbotsford Hotel, a more  respectable establishment.  The rather prissy desk-  clerk looks us over suspiciously but Carlotta's wedding ring  does the trick. I sign something original like Mr. and  Mrs. John Doc and we head  upstairs.  Upstairs we gradually drop  our respective masks. The  relentlessly hip; essentially  defensive overtones ease from  her voice as she tells me  about her childhood.  "I got to admit, I had it  pretty damn good when I was  a kid. My mother came from  a wealthy family and they set  my old man up in business.  Her name was Consuella  and she was really a class  lady. I look a lot like her. But  she was calm and always had  her game together. Not like  me. I guess I got her looks and  my father's Mick craziness.  I suppose I hurt her a bit  later on and I'm sorry about  that now for all the goddam  good it does. I'm just the way I  am and I have to live life on  my own terms. But I guess I  was cooler when I was a little  girl and I more-or-less did  what they wanted me to.  I didn't start cutting up till  I hit my teens and discovered  boys. My first lover was a cat  named Manuel, the same guy  who turned me on to grass. I  had his kid when I was sixteen. My folks were furious.  The kid was adopted out and  they shipped me up here to  get me away from Manuel.  That was the first time I was  in Vancouver. My aunt's  husband was alive then and  the old bastard wouldn't  keep his hands off me. I  packed up my gear one night  and split back across the line.  Hit L.A. for awhile; worked  as an extra on a few flicks;  lived with a couple of dudes.  I even hustled for awhile  when things got tight. Sometimes you'd run across some  real weirdos. There was  this Scandinavian dude - some  kind of sea captain. He used to  pay me fifty bucks just to sit  in a cafe booth and talk to  him. Never even touched  me. That was the easiest  trick I ever turned. But, wow,  I'm talking too goddam much.  "Christ no" I say quite  honestly. "It's really interesting. You're the first girl  I've met in years who's even  been outside B.C."  "Oh yeah. Well there isn't  too much more. I got word  from my father that Consuella  was dying of cancer so I went  back to Mexico. It was pretty  grim and she suffered quite a  lot. I really went through some  guilty changes.

After she went, I stayed  on with my pop for awhile but  he started hitting the juice  like I told you and I couldn't  deal with it. Anyway, I'd  inherited some bread so I just  knocked around Mexico for  awhile.  At first, I was sort of looking  for Manuel but I found out  he'd gone to South America.  I tied up with some strange  people who were into eating  peyote among other things  and I got pretty strange  myself. I had a black stallion  for a while. I used to get  dressed all in black like a  female Zorro or something  and ride around the countryside, stoned out of my gourd.  The Indians thought I was a  witch. They used to mutter  and cross themselves when I  rode by. Finally, I got fed up  with this sort of caper and  went back up to L.A.  Almost right off the bat, I  ran into this big handsome  Italian   dude   called   Mario  Carnelli. Suppose by this  time, I was looking for some  kind of security after all the  craziness. I figured I was in  love with him and we got  married. He owns part of a  casino in Vegas so we moved  there. Turned out to be a real  bad scene. Mario's a good  enough lover and he bought  me lots of clothes and expensive jewelry but he's got  a jealous streak a mile wide.  He treated me like property.  Christ, he'd flip out if I so  much as spoke to some other  dude. I stuck it for as long  as I could; then I ran. Which  just about brings us up to  right now, baby."

Winner  of our  Sweater Draw  SHERI JAY  I  Helen's    oW,  Fashion   Shoppe Coast News, October 21, 1980  Off the  shelf  by John Moore  There is a minor character  in one of American humourist  Peter DeVries' novels who  must have been inspired by  John D. MacDonald. The  character is an author who  writes "good bad books" in  order to pay the rent and  enable him to write "bad  good books".  John D. MacDonald will  be familiar to most readers as  the author of the successful  "Travis McGee" series.  McGee is described in the  publishers' publicity as an  "amiable and incurable tilter  at conformity, boat-bum Quixote, hopeless sucker for  starving kittens, women in  distress, and large, loose  sums of money". With titles  like "The Deep Blue Good-  By", "The Dreadful Lemon  Sky", "The Turquoise Lament", "A Tan and Sandy  Silence", the chief element of  suspense in the series seems  to be how long MacDonald can  keep cranking them out before  he finally exhausts the colour-  wheel.  Don't get me wrong; I  wouldn't tangle with the  legion of Travis McGee fans  for any large, loose sum of  money. McGee addicts tend to  be rabid fanatics. 1 know of  husbands who've had to  endure having their firstborn  sons named after him and he's  a front-runner for the distinction of being the first  fictional character to be  named co-respondent in a  divorce case.  While the McGee series  are undeniably "formula"  books, they have an even  broader based appeal than  most entries in the mystery-  suspense genre, chiefly because MacDonald's writing,  both  narrative  and   in  dia  logue, is a considerable cut  above the bare competence  of most of his competitors  in the field. The McGee  series, though they'll never  get MacDonald nominated for  the Nobel Prize for literature,  are unquestionably "good bad  books".  Like DeVries' character,  when he isn't churning out  "good bad books" MacDonald  turns his talents to what  could, with some justification,  be called "bad good books";  novels whose basic concept,  structure and theme would  delight the most discriminating academic critic, but  whose author has spent so  many years as a drug-store  rack cowboy and become such  a notorious and highly paid  word-slinger, that he just  doesn't fit the image of the  Great Man of Letters wooing  the Muse in the austere  Temple of Art.  Condominium (Fawcett  Books, 1977, $2.25) is one of  MacDonald's better "bad  good books". Set in the  Florida Keys, where luxury  condos rise like mushrooms  out of the shimmering islets  off the tip of the state, Condominium is, on one level, a  thinly fictionalized expose of  all that people mean when  they speak of "developers"  with contempt.  Condominium lifts up the  rocks that hide the wheeler-  dealers, the dummy corporations that sprout up, make  a quick buck selling land  options to yet another dummy  corporation that builds a  development, peddles the  condos, then disappears without a trace before the lawsuits  hit the fan. The officers of  these outfits simply play  musical chairs in a single  board-room while lawyers  keep   the   dissatisfied   cus-  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  End Game in Paris by Ian Adams, Doubleday 1979  Foxfire 6. Doubleday 1980  There is an authenticity about Adams' work that makes even  ihe country's own security people nervous. His novel S: Portrait  of a Spy got into trouble of late. Certain members of thc  government were uncomfortable with marked similarities  between Adams' and real characters within that circle.  In this book, Ihe author Hogs the spy business once again. This  lime thc story is about mistaken identity. A post Vietnam  photographer comes home to find himself threatened, almost  bombed and certainly the object of curiosity amongsi certain  international organizations. Timothy Stern, the returned  newsman, bunks in with a female agent who can be trusted.  Baffled why he is being pursued bv those who arc confusing him  with someone else, he searches for informalion which will clear his  identity,  A series of close calls makes thc novel absorbing and recalls the  1970 October crisis. A surprise ending in Paris brings the mystery  a solution and the reader some relief. Cynicism remains, however,  as Adams casts doubts aboul Ihe elhics of thc secrets business.  Foxfire 6 is an irresistible look at the warm past, lt is not only an  instruction book about how to make dricd-applc-head dolls or  play mumbledy-peg. We meet the folks who keep these traditions  alive. They arc not the smoothies who have everything down to  plastic cralts-in-a-bag. They are ihe old and unschooled who  make no bones aboul quick and easy ways or kil-art. Along with  the method goes a lol of advice about how to live.  Says wood-vvhittler Willard Watson: "You're just a fizzle  sprout now, but you'll learn that one of the great satisfactions  comes from knowing lhal the ihings we're doing now is gonna  linger on," Foxfire keeps il lhat way.  Shocmaking. wooden toys and games do not come free in this  book. With every pattern comes a history, a philosophy and some  well earned advice. It is easy to imagine thc collector of these  wonderful crafts spending hours listening while the corn doll is  fashioned or thc wooden lock carved. While the tales come from  Ihe Appalachian Mountains, they could jusi as easily be ihe ones  heard at our own grandfather's knees.  The charm and honesty of thc near past come flooding in as wc  read ihe hesi from Foxfire Magazine.  c  7  n  RDPBoohstore  A  886-7744   rffife     Open  t_m  ^  Comer ol School &    _g__l        ' F" lil 7:30 <"  <>  >���  O  Gowor Point Roaae. ^(%y          sun.n-o  ii  Captive Splendors - Fern Michaels  The Victorian Parlour  A  (A Cut & Colour Book) - T.

Like Arthur Hailey, MacDonald makes good use of a  literary device as old as  Boccaccio's Decameron: the  condominium, like a hotel,  airport lounge, or a ship at  sea, is a perfect device for  uniting people of disparate  backgrounds and weaving  them into a plot. MacDonald's  people, however, are less  two dimensional than Hai-  ley's, more substantial and  better developed.  At its best, Condominium is  a bitter and ironic look at the  American dream. Most of the  occupants of the condos are  retired people who have paid  their dues in the great free-  enterprise society and enjoyed  a modicum of success, only to  become, in their "golden  years", its tragically helpless  victims, pigeons for younger  "entrepreneurs" to fleece in  the name ofthe same dream.  The foundations of the  dream are literally built on  sand, and just how literally  is devastatingly proved when  the biggest hurricane of the  season comes howling out of  the Atlantic straight at the  fragile condo-laden keys.  MacDonald may never be a  great critical success in  literary terms, but neither is  he your average pulp-writing  hack. He writes highly readable highly-paid fiction and  writes it by the hundredweight. His books are always  better'than you think they're  going to be and that's more  than I can say for a lot of  writers who claim to pack a lot  more literary weight. All for  now.  VIEW 2, the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre's second Juried  Show opens at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt on October 28 and  runs through to November 16.  We cannot inform you of who  will be in the show yet as  jurying will take place this  Saturday.  All artists on the Sunshine  Coast are invited to submit up  to three works in either  painting, drawing, graphics,  photography, sculpture or  multi-media. Bring artwork to  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  Hall in Sechelt on Saturday,  October 25, 9-11 a.m. There is  an entry fee of $5.00 per  person. All works must be  framed or exhibition ready  and be labelled on back with  name, address, phone, title  and medium. Works chosen  by the juror may be for  sale; the Arts Centre takes a  30% commission.  Last year's juror, U.B.C.  Fine Arts Gallery curator,  Glenn Allison, selected pieces  from his point of view, and  this year a trained art historian and critic will express  her point of view. Juror  chosen for VIEW 2 is Avis  Rosenberg, a Vancouver  based lecturer specializing in  Canadian art. Avis also  writes art critiques and  articles for various publications, and she is looking  forward to seeing what our  artists are up to.  One purpose of a juried  show is to get an outside and  professional view of the  artwork being produced on  the Sunshine Coast. Last year  saw 60 participants submitting  160   works,   an   impressive  number for an area this size.  Mr. Allison remarked-on the  enthusiasm and interest  shown by the artists here, especially concerning those who  attended his critique the  following week.  Lastly, the public will be  given the opportunity to see  what will likely be some of  the  highest  quality  artwork  emerging on this coastline.  Everyone is invited to the  opening on Monday, October  27,8-10 p.m.  Please note the Arts Centre  will be closed this Sunday,  August 26 only, and Saturday  will be the last day for the  ambitious and fascinating  ceramics exhibit Everywhere*.

There was only a handful of  the public present due to the  fact that the announcement of  the meeting had only been  published that same day, thus  eliminating the possibility  of a great turnout of concerned  citizens. This of course was  not deliberate on the part of  the Regional Board and it was  pointed out that they are  anxious to hear what we the  residents feel on matters  regarding waterfront leases.  However, it would appear  that if you wish to express  your opinions you should write  to this board stating same.  The reason that your input is  desired is that the Regional  Board are being inundated  with applications for foreshore  leases, some for marina  developments. some for  waterfront rights for apartment complexes etc. The list  goes on and on. It is a big  undertaking for this board of  people to make such decisions  and it is up to we members  of the public to assist them by  letting them know how we  feel.  Your correspondent took the  opportunity to express personal opinion, which is as  follows: It is high time that a  stop be made to allowing  either any person or company  the right of ownership of our  very precious beaches. As  things stand already the  situation is appalling. It seems  that we cannot take a walk  along our beaches without  being accused of trespassing.  It was understandable in the  days when people were  pioneering this area that they  could be free to build a ramp  or boat shed or whatever  they wished on the waterfront.  But those days arc gone  now, the area is becoming  more populated and there are  more of us who do not reside  on the actual waterfront  who are demanding our rights  to the use of all beaches and  accesses to same. If we do not  stand up for these rights and  demand them, we will find  that twenty years down the  line we will have a government who will be spending  fortunes to buy back waterfront rights for the people -  which is exactly what is  recently taking place in  Vancouver. So the obvious  solution is ��� don't permit any  more waterfront leases unless  they are for public usage.  Will get off the soap box  now and get down to other  matters. For the benefit of  those planning to come to  the Oktoberfest dinner at  Welcome Beach hall on  Saturday, October 25th, I have  been asked to let you know  that you should bring your  own dishes, cutlery and  glasses.  Everybody wants to have a  good time and not have to  spend half the evening in the  kitchen, so it is a good idea to  do it this way. By the way,  while most of the tickets  have gone, there are at the  present time still a few left.  But you will have to hurry up  for these. You could give  either Flo Hill or Eileen  Hansen a call for these.  Fireworks, Films and Bazaar  Couple of reminders of  events about to take place.  Film night at Welcome Beach  hall is this Thursday at  7:30 p.m. Some excellent films  of England - or I should say -  Britain, Russia and Germany.  It would be encouraging to see  a decent turnout for these film  nights. The firemen will be  having thc annual fireworks  display and Hallowe'en party  on the 31st at the government  wharf at 8 p.m., with party  and costume judging in the  firehall after the fireworks  show.  Don't forget the Halfmoon  Bay Hospital Auxiliary bazaar  on Saturday, November 1st  at 1 p.m. Everyone will be  made most welcome. The  auxiliary will hold their  regular monthly meeting on  Monday November 3rd. This  meeting will commence at  7:30 in order that the business  discussions can take place  before the arrival of a guest  speaker, Stella Morrow. Stella  will, for the benefit of many  of our new members, answer  any questions we may wish to  ask regarding the function of  the auxiliaries. Will remind  you of this again nearer the  time.

Future of Community Hall fiercely debated   ���      ,_.... u............ ��..  m.~m.i�� Hoht?       ten acres and includes the    be   a   French   restaurant,"  by Jeannle Norton 886-9609  "But who gets custody of  Roberts Creek Daze?"  seemed to be the main concern arising out of the vote at  last week's Community Association meeting to strike a  new committee to raise money  for the maintenance, improvement and repayment on the  mortgage of the old Community Hall.  The decision came after  heated discussion over the  question of whether future  funds raised by the Ways and  Means Committee should be  diverted from the joint facility  to be constructed at Roberts  Creek Elementary to the  preservation of the Hall  presently owned by the  Association. The meeting  dissolved into virtual bedlam  but out of the melee a rift  clearly appeared.  One faction is adverse to  raising funds for a building  owned by the Ministry of  Education and would rather  devote their energy to restoring and preserving the  building which is "part ofthe  heritage of our community."  Their arguments gained apparent support from Chairman  Chuck Barnes' concern about  the Association's loss of  autonomy and lack of control  in the joint venture.  Those committed to the new  facility, however, felt that it  was not desirable to change  the purpose of the Ways and  Means Committee. It was set  up specifically to raise funds  for a new Hall and people  who worked for it had presumably been dedicated to  that purpose.  Plus, as Dennis Fitzgerald  pointed out, more money will  be needed for the new hall/-  gymnasium. When the bids  come in, estimates will no  doubt be higher than expected  and the plans will have to be  cut down to the bare essentials. The frills could be  supplied by funds raised by  the Ways and Means Committee. In other words, we're  not through yet, folks.  So the motion to change the  purpose of the Ways and  Means Committee was narrowly defeated. A motion to  split the funds raised by the  Committee between the old  and the new halls was tabled  until next meeting. But then a  motion was passed to form  a new committee for the  preservation ofthe old Hall.  Concern was expressed  about the viability of having  two groups with the same  function, namely raising  money. It is feared that they  will be reduced to competing  for money-raising activities  such as dances.  It is certainly unfortunate  that there will be a splitting  of energy and initiative.  Roberts Creek has accomplished so much through  community co-operation. But  if there is no longer agreement  as to commitments or goals  then it seems best to let  each group go its own way.  That is not to say there  cannot be peaceful co-existence and even co-operation.  The old (Ways and Means)  committee may lie in abeyance  for a period until a particular  project arises while the new  (Hall Preservation) committee  is obviously eager to pursue  its activities now.  There's no reason why that1  cannot happen and when the  time comes, with Roberts  Creek Daze for instance, some  accommodation or even collaboration can surely be  worked out. After all, we are  all reasonable people, right?  Other business  Earlier in the meeting,  Dennis Fitzgerald reported  that the plans for the new  hall/gymnasium had gone to  the Treasury Board in Victoria  that day and approval to let  tenders was expected possibly  within the week.  And it was decided at the  Executive meeting to replace  the rotting posts around the  Post Office with cedar posts as  concrete is too expensive.  Anyone able to donate cedar  posts about four feet long and  eight to ten inches in diameter  is asked to contact Chuck  Barnes. He will be happy to  pick them up and store them  until a work party can be  organized.  Bazaar Saturday  St. Aidan's Ladies Auxiliary  is holding its bazaar this  Saturday, October 25. It starts  at 2 o'clock at the Community  Hall and there'll be tea,  raffles, baking and secondhand goods.  New at camp  Camp Douglas on Beach  Avenue has new caretakers as  of the first of this month.  They're Marcel and Freda  McNabb from Winnipeg with  their 16 and 17-year-old sons,  the last of nine children!  Camp Douglas, I just  learned, is owned by the  Presbyterian Church. It is  used mostly in the summer for  children's camps but may be  used for the occasional weekend in the winter. It occupies  ten acres and includes the  beautiful modern "rec hall"  and the old church across the  road as well as the cabins for  campers.  The McNabbs expect to be  here for the winter at least.  How long they'll be at Camp  Douglas depends upon whether the Presbyterian Church  decides to build a church at  the camp. Meanwhile, we  welcome the McNabbs and  hope that they enjoy living in  Roberts Creek.  Thanksgiving vandalism  A discarded beer bottle,  probably hurled from a passing car, smashed the window  of the ice cream parlour at  Seaview Market on the Saturday evening of the Thanksgiving week-end, sending a  shower of glass clear to thi-4  shelves at the back of the  store. The window has been  replaced but the incident is  still disturbing, especially  when the store has been  relatively free from vandalism  in past years.  Creek not Greek  "I thought it was going to  be a French restaurant,'  was the common comment  when the sign went up across  from the store announcing  that the "Greek House Restaurant (sic)" would be  opening soon. When I last  talked to the owners, the  menu hadn't been decided  but would probably include  both French and Italian  cooking and the name was  supposed to be "Creek  House". Sorry moussakafans.

Isn't it  beautiful? Is the sky really  a deeper blue with everything  etched brighter and clearer  against it? I suspect it's the  knowledge of those storm  clouds gathering in the Pacific  which heightens our awareness.  Our house is tucked down  among the trees, sheltered  from the east by a rise of  tall firs, so morning does not  come with a dramatic fanfare,  "here comes the sun" as,  clearing the North Shore  mountains golden light spills  across the waters of Howe  Sound. Instead, daylight tiptoes on tabby feet, silvery  light slowly vanquishing the  shadows and it's about an  hour after sunrise before  the treetops on the west  reflect the glow and warmth  of a sunny day to the still  waiting garden. A garden  already alive with robins  feeding on the rowan berries.  The juncos are back, black  cowls, brown habits waiting  with impatient voices for me to  bring their breakfast oats.  On Indian Summer mornings the grass is often  silvered with dew which also  clings to the leaves of the  acacia tree and the young firs,  where the geometric webs of  the gardencross spider, (she  has a big white cross on her  back) are outlined in dew-  drops, sparkling blue and gold  as the sun touches them.  An eagle is back too, stark  black and white against the  blue sky as he surveys the  beach from a familiar vantage  point. Along the beach winter  residents return and migrants  stop over briefly. Loons sit  deep in the water again and  hell divers surface like bobbing corks; two pairs of ruddy  ducks paddle in the shallows  and a flock of Aleutian Sandpipers rest at the water's  edge, feeding on the seaweed  covered rocks and keeping up  a continuous chatter among  themselves.  Returning from the beach  it's tempting to sit on the deck  soaking up those last warm  hours of sun, but there's too  much to do in the garden and  those autumn chores go so  much better with sunshine  which is not too hot and blue  skies to encourage frequent  times "to stand and stare."  And so much beauty to watch.  The cutleaf birch, 30 ft. of  straight white trunk stands  like a shimmering yellow  fountain against a background of dark fir, with flurries of tiny golden leaves  letting go to flutter to the  ground as the breeze passes  by. The breeze which persuades the horse chestnuts  to drop spilling those varnished, shiny nuts from their  prickly green cases. A flock of  evening grosbeaks look the  wild cherries over for any  remaining fruit among the  golden leaves; an acrobatic  performance is staged by four  Stellar's jays feasting on  acorns, a kaleidoscope of  brilliant colour, blue and black  birds among the gold, russet  and green leaves. The sea  shimmers in the midday sun  like  crinkled  foil  while  the  / ~~  sumac glows scarlet  the ivy covered stump.  Then, a whisper at first, but  gradually impinging on one's  consciousness comes that soft  murmuring from the sky,  and one's memory gives a leap  as the sound registers - geese.  You crane your neck searching  the blue and then there they  are right overhead, a loose  straggling line of Canadas  talking to themselves as they  keep that steady wingbeat,  homing in towards the Fraser  estuary to rest and feed. It's  a sight which never fails to  thrill and set one's blood  racing.  All summer they've been  silent but thc cool, moist  nights at this time of year  seem to activate thc tree  frogs and their joyous croaks  ring across the garden. I  don't know if the frogs are  happy but I'm always happy to  hear them, remembering one  special day when I came face  to face with one of the elfin  beside creatures, about the size of a  quarter, emerald green, clinging to the thimbleberry leaf  with tiny suckered toes.  We may not see the sunrise  over the mountains, but by  this time of year we can enjoy  the fiery red and orange,  delicate pink, gold, azure and  sometimes green of the  sunset; the brilliance of the  sky reflected in the calm  waters of Georgia Strait.  Long shafts of light penetrate the trees along the  western boundary of the  garden, spotlighting a clump  of goldcnrod here, the arbutus  tree there, or the last blooms  on a marigold. The trunks  of the fir trees are bathed  in a red light and wonderful things happen as the blue  smoke from the wood stove  lit for the evening drifts  gently across the garden and  down through the trees  intermingling with the sunbeams.  Oddfellows  On Wednesday, October IS,  the Sunshine Coast Lodge  welcomed the Grand Master  of British Columbia, Emest  Murton of Victoria on his  official visit to the Sunshine  Coast at a dinner held at  Fitzgeralds with visitors from  Royal City Lodge #3.

Diabetes is a condition  which affects nearly one in  every 20 persons, one of whom  could be you. Its complications - blindness, kidney  disease, gangrene, heart disease and stoke - make it the  third leading cause of death.  It is a condition in which the  pancreas, a large gland  located behind the stomach,  fails to secrete enough insulin  to supply the body with  energy.  The sugars and starches in  the foods we eat are converted  in the body to a form of sugar  called glucose. The blood  stream distributes this glucose  to the body cells where, with  the aid of insulin, it is converted to ready energy or  stored for future use. Insulin  is a natural hormone, one of  many chemical substances  produced by the pancreas.  When diabetes develops,  the body either does not  produce enough insulin or  may not be able to use what is  produced. Without insulin,  glucose accumulates in the  blood until some of the surplus  is eliminated by the kidneys  and passed off in the urine.  Hence, sugar in the urine and  too much sugar in the blood  are signs of diabetes.  No one knows exactly why  the pancreas becomes ineffective, but it is know that  there are several causes,  among which are heredity,  obesity and viruses.  Who   cut   get   Diabetes?  Nearly everyone, children and  adults alike, especially if  there is a family history of  diabetes, but even if there  isn't. Juvenile-onset type is  the more severe. Most cases  of diabetes occur in people  who are over forty and overweight. It may also surface  under severe emotional stress,  severe illness, surgery and  with pregnancy.  Is Insulin * cure for Diabetes? No. It is an aid ��� a  priceless aid that has restored  life to those who used to die  from diabetes, prolonged the  life-span of diabetics and  enabled them to lead nearly  normal lifestyles. Diabetes  is especially prevalent in  affluent countries such as  ours, because affluence encourages obesity. Even 20%  excess weight doable* the  chance of getting diabetes.  What is the Treatment for  Diabetes? Diagnosis is the  first step. After diagnosis, the  treatment consists of nutritional diet, an exercise program and medication or  insulin. Juvenile-onset diabetics always require insulin  for' medication. Many adult-  onset diabetics require  only proper diet and exercise;  others require oral medication  to stimulate the pancreas, or  insulin, in addition to diet  and exercise.  Does Diabetes lead to complications? White it is true that  the high sugar level in blood  directly causes the damage to  eyes, kidneys and nerves,  many of these complications  are the accustomed disabilities of old age. Having diabetes does hasten the onset  and progress of the complications, but early diagnosis  and proper treatment can  delay the complications or  prevent them altogether.  What an the signs of  Diabetes? Juvenile-onset diabetes is characterized by the  sudden appearance of: frequent urination, continuing  thirst, more or less hunger  than usual, rapid weight loss,  irritability, obvious weakness  and fatigue, nausea and  vomiting.  Mature-onset diabetes may  include any of the above signs,  or: drowsiness, itching.blur-  red vision, excessive weight,  tingling, numbness or pain in  the extremities, easy fatigue,  skin infections and slow  healing of cuts and scratches  and, of course, a family  history of diabetes.  Any of these signals can  mean diabetes. Children  usually exhibit dramatic and  sudden symptoms and must  receive prompt treatment.  Many adults have none of  these symptoms and the  disease is often discovered  during routine physical examinations.  Is   Diabetes   Preventable?  Very often, yes.

A Dream  Come True  As the date of our 10th Anniversary in business approaches, I  think back over my life and marvel at how things have come together  for me, and my family.  I left home and struck out on my own, as a very young man, in  1931. The depression was underway after the stock-market crash of  1929. After completing a year and a half of business training-  subjects being bookkeeping, typewriting, shorthand, business  englishand business math, I landed a job with a wholesale footwear  distributor which also carried side lines in denim wear.  I recall earning $8. per week for the first six months and since I had  left home, I had to pay $25. per month for room and board. Not much  left, but with a tight budget and maintaining good credit relations  with my clothier, I managed to clothe myself.  I had no car, not even a bicycle, so I walked most everywhere,  which is probably why I've got good legs, and good lungs today. We  found all sorts of things to do that required little or no money. I  enjoyed cards and we played a lot of bridge with people of the  neighbourhood.  My work on the job was quite varied. The reason I got the job was  that I could do the office work required, such as invoicing, recordkeeping, letter writing,etc, but as an able-bodied young man, I  could also help to unload railway freight cars, and do general  warehouse duties which included shipping and receiving.  Later I became city salesman as well. So I had the total job of  soliciting orders, taking them back to the warehouse, filling them  myself, invoicing them and oft times to save 25<t delivery costs, carry  the package, if it wasn't too large to the store.  It was my close association with the wholesale and retail trade  that got me interested in the store business. As we closed Saturday  at noon, I augmented my income, as well as gaining valuable  experience, by working in various stores.  My first experience, of course, even before my wholesale job was  to work after school and Saturdays in the Hudson's Bay Co.  Groceteria. I worked in several departments including Men's Wear,  where even as a youngster I could measure-up a man for a tailored-  to-measure suit. Later, being an employee of a wholesale footwear  business, I worked in exclusive shoe stores.  And so it seems, from one thing to another, all my life I was  grooming myself to do that which I wanted to do most of all, and that  was being a store-keeper���a merchant.  With six years out of my adult life in the army, and then the  responsibilities of raising a family, it wasn't until 1970, with 33 years  of business experience, that I was finally able to achieve my  'dream'��� but with the added advantage of having my wife and  family by my side, to enrich our enterprise with their particular drive  and skills.  It is indeed a 'Dream Come True' and an experience I trust that has  enriched our relationship and togetherness.  Grocery Draw Winner  Francis Wyngaert  TIMER WATCHES  25% Off  &  1.

In  another case, involving allegations of price-fixing in the  petroleum industry, the government is hiding what evidence there may be.  In 1973 the Trudeau government, under pressure from a  group of concerned organizations, began an investigation  of the oil industry with particular attention to wholesale  and retail pricing.  In 1974, HerbGray, who was  then Minister of Consumer and  Corporate Affairs (and is back  in the "born again" Liberal  cabinet) informed the House of  Commons his department  m~mmmmmmmmmm^m'  would complete its investi-  ation "as expeditiously as  possible."  Six years later the report has  still nol been released. In June  of ihis year I asked the present  Consumer and Corporate Affairs Minister, Andre Oueletle.  what has happened lo the  report. He told me and other  members of the House the  report would be made public  "within weeks".  I hose weeks are now past.  Gas and oil prices have risen  again. Texaco's profits rose by  94 percent. Shell's rose hy 4?  percent. And still the report has  nol been made public. In my  view, this is an outrage, lt raises  the suspicion that there are  matters disclosed in the investigation that are embarrassing to  the government and oi the  Liberal Party.  ��� Wood & Aluminum Windows  ��� Auto & Marine Glass  ��� Glass & Mirrors  ��� Plant Care &.

George W. Inglis  The Bible is probably the  most controversial book in the  world, and the most abused by  quasi-experts who arc prepared  to read this ancient book with a  twentieth-century perspective,  filling in liberally with imagination when Ihe meaning is  found lo be obscure.  Many of those who "study"  the Bible in this fashion try to  gloss over their lack of conscientious study by quoting  Martin Luther, the spark-plug  of the sixteenth Protestant  Reformation, who said lhat  anyone could plumb ihe treasures of the Bible through  prayer, with Ihe aid of God's  Holy Spirit.  Those who quote Luther  forget that he was a graduate  lawyer, a graduate theologian  and professor in theology, and  a fully trained Roman Catholic  priest, and brought all of this  knowledge to bear on scripture,  when he approached the Bible.  Many people will argue thc  point, and cite dramatic instances where untutored people  with a strong faith and an  earnest desire to do God's will  have found it possible to  understand scripture-there are  too many inslances like this to  deny the possibility, and there-  is no doubt that Jesus said: "I  thank thee. Father, Lord of  heaven and earth, that thou  hast hidden these things from  the wise and understanding and  revealed them lo babes; yea.  Lather, for such was thy  gracious will." (Matthew II:  25.26.)  It would be wrong of us to  interpret this as meaning that  any babe or infant in fuith  could icad the Bible with full  tinders! nding and knowledge  of God. especially in view ofthe  verse that follows: "All ihings  have been delivered to me by  my lather; and no one knows  the Son except the Lather, and  no one knows the Lather  except the Son and anyone to  whom the Son chooses to  reveal him."  Many ofthe self-styled Bible  students of today find ihe King  .lames version of the Bible too  difficult to understand, because  it is written in early seven-  teen-centry English, and yet  they make radical claims to  know and understand the Bible  fully, forgetting that the Bible  contains writings about customs and practices that date  back literally thousands of  years and were written in  ancient Hebrew (a Canaanite  language). Aramaic, an ancient  dialect called Old Aramaic, and  Greek.  Because of the polyglot of  writings. Ihe stupendous task  of collecting and editing thc  writings, thc titanic task of  interpreting and translating thc  writings, the Bible remains as  thc single most precious document in existence today.  Even more astounding than  thc task of collecting the Bible  into one free-flowing volume is  thc fact that literally thousands  of hands took part in the job,  and yet recent finds of parchments, such as the most recent  Dead Sea Scrolls, have only  served to authenticate the  accuracy of this recording of  God's relationship with man.  There still remains the fact  that the twentielh-century  mind, whether of eastern or  western culture, must turn the  clock back in identify itself with  thc times and minds of the  authors of the various portions  of writing.  This task is called "exegesis,"  which means, in simple terms,  to place yourself back into the  times, culture, and practices of  the writer, in order to understand what is being described in  terms of the writer's understanding.  This task is also the act of  placing yourself inlo thc spirit  of the writer, so that such  Ihings as mass murders committed in God's name are seen  quite differently, and do not  have to be pushed to one side,  simply because they arc not  understood in today's context.  Along with this assimilating  of much of the spirit and times  of thc writer, should come the  faith that all of these writers,  through the early patriarchs,  judges, kings, wisdom writers,  prophets, evangelists, apostles  and ecclesiastics, had one thing  in common - they wrote with  the fervor and guidance of  God's Holy Spirit.  Here is where Luther's belief  that we all may understand  scripture if we approach its  reading with humility, and with  thc guidance of God's Holy  Spirit, comes in.  This exegisis docs not have  to be thc horrendous task that  thc word may imply, in spite of  thc fact it has caused many a  new seminarian to quake with  fear.  It may be achieved quite  painlessly by daily reading and  assimilating God's Word,  coupled with some reference  study on the side, to help place  the reader back in time.  lt is an almost tragic leap  from the twentieth-century  A.D. into the tenth-century  B.C. without any preparation  or attempt to penetrate the  tenth-century Semitic mind  and the cultures of a semi-  nomadic collection of tribes,  moving rapidly into an agrarian society.  It is as fruitless as it is for  today's reader trying to understand the manners and mores  of people just 50 years ago, in  the height ofthe Great Depression!  I have listened to so-called  experts on those days, through  which 1 lived, and found most  of its total interpretation to be  wide of the mark, because they  didn't understand our point of  view during those tough years.  By why study the Bible  anyway? Why not just read it  and enjoy it?  1 find it hard to answer that  question except to say that I  believe the Bible holds all ofthe  mysteries that exist between the  God whom 1 love, and myself.  Therefore, 1 find it impossible not to read and study  the Bible to know him whom I  love, more fully.

The major purpose of  the trip was to examine the  proposed Kemano II project  but other issues came up as  well.  Rather than the behind  closed doors "public" meetings  recently organized by the  Socred cabinet, the NDP held  well attended open sessions in  which a wide variety of groups  were able to participate, lt  became clear that one of the  major concerns of Northeastern residents is the marked  decline in health and social  services.  Take one example. Prince  Rupert City Council drew  attention to thac lack of  funding for the local Transition  House Society. Such facilities  are badly needed in relatively  isolated communites where  marital breakdown is often  associated with intimidation  and violence.  In both Prince Rupert and  Kitimat, volunteer social service coordinators told the  M LAs how they had attempted  to provide badly needed emergency services without professional backup or realistic  funding. Support from Victoria is, at best, intermittent  and woefully inadequate.  The same story was told  across thc north. Services of all  kinds - street social workers,  detoxification centres, drug  counselling clinics - have been  cut to the bone while those that  have survived tend to be  organized on a volunteer basis.  Dave Barrett noled that the  situation is worse than it was  prior to I972, centralization of  power in Victoria has worked  lo the detriment of thc north.  The Community Resources  Boards created by thc NDP  government ensured that local  communities could themselves  determine which services were  most needed and most worthy  of  provincial   support.   Now  lhat they have been abolished,  the decisions are taken hy  Victoria and the community is  forced to provide many of the  necessary services on an ad hoc.  unfunded basis.  Excessive centralization and  lack of funding have resulted in  a continuing human tragedy.  Much of this is hidden but the  ultimate result is to he seen in  our overcrowded mental hospitals and prisons.  A first priority of an NDP  government will be to rebuild  our health and social services  and to give support to the  dedicated individuals and  groups who arc attempting lo  close thc gap at the local level.  fJGibsons Christian Books & Crafts  -**���  Open Daily 10 am. - 5 pm.

Relaxation through  massage workshops  After the first week of interlocking league action between  Squamish and Sunshine Coast  teams, hockey appears to be  booming once again.  The feature game Saturday  evening had to be the 8 p.m.  game, in which the Cozy Court  Bruins hosted the Squamish  Highlander Canadians in a  contest that saw a total of 26  goals. While the game was  still close after two periods of  play with the Bruins leading  8-5, in the third period the  Bruins stormed past the  visiting Canadians and went  on a goal scoring rampage that  ended in an 18-8 final.  In the earlier game at the  Sechelt Arena Saturday, the  Sechelt A's defeated the  Gibsons Hockey Club 5-2 in a  good solid game.  On   Saturday   evening   in  Squamish, the defending  champion Roberts Creek team  defeated Super-Valu 10-7.

Carl's  corner  In search of a career  On the  Seafood Platter  by Carl Chriamai  As the hot, dry summer  wore on, Jim and Peggy's  ove blossomed and bloomed,  lim responded to Peg's  attentions as a rose responds  to sunlight and water. Peg was  radiant and her spirits were  high. Her evening songs  changed from lullabvs to love,  most often her Wild Irish  Rose. Oh, they had their little  disagreements and lovers'  spats but patched them up in  a hurry as they grew closer  and closer.  Jim's health improved and  our old cat purred along day  after day with very few  problems as he nursed it over  rocks and bad ground.  Craike was satisfied with  our cleanup job but we were  rapidly running out of trees.  He was looking for other  timber in the immediate area  but to no avail. There were a  few strands of small timber a  few miles away but during  our looking we discovered we  had neighbours a mile down  the track from us.  The Williams family operated a tie mill at a siding  about a mile from us and  nearby, Jack Breighton and  Jim Coffee operated another.  They had been cutting ties  in the area for many years  and both remembered when  the big mill at Kinsol had been  going full bore.  Jack had known the mill  manager at the time and  though he had very little to say  about him we got the feeling  that all was not well between  them. It seems they had  shared a few cars of half  shipments and Jack had  received the short end of the  stick. We tried to draw him  out on that but we were  strangers to him and he was  being cautious.  They also told us of mysterious shipments of lumber  by truck over the Kinsol-  Cowichan road to other parts  of the Island. These could  have been a part of the clandestine sales going on at the  time and during the months  before the fire that wiped  out the mill.  We passed this information  on to Craike, but so much  time had elapsed since the  fire and the disappearance  of the ex-mill manager that  it was decided to forget the  whole affair. All a stump  scale would prove would be  that the timber was gone and  we already knew that.  It seemed the fire that  destroyed the mill was one of  convenience. When the timber  ran out, short of the original  cruise figures by approximately three million feet, the  easiest method of stalling an  investigation was to burn the  mill. As log and lumber prices  were at their lowest ebb at  the time, no one was much  interested in wasting money  on a check cruise for timber in  such an isolated location.  There may have been  insurance reasons for keeping  the whole thing quiet, so the  mill manager had done a good  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  Mon -Sat   9am -6pm  Fridays until 9pm  Sundays: Noon til 4 p.m.  FREE  PRESCRIPTION  DELIVERY  within the boundaries ot  the Village ot Gibsons  to all Seniors  65 years or over  MAXWELL'S  PHARMACY  Cedar Plaza.

In any case, it  was now past history as  far as we were concerned  so we had to look to other  things.  As our little camp was now  well established,  we would  have liked to have secured  more timber in the area, but to  do so, we would have been  encroaching on timber that  Williams and Breighton would  be bidding on as they required  it for their mills.  The season was getting  along into September so if we  were going to make a move,  we would have to do it before  the fall rains and bad weather  began.  Albin Johnson and his  partner had finished the  falling and were back in the  City. Within a week we would  have the last of the logs  cleaned up, the boom closed  off and a scale called. It was  time for Bert to go on a timber  hunt or line up a contract.  Bert had been away for  several days, our booming was  finished and I had called for  a scale, and our rigging and  equipment had been moved  into camp ready for loading  out. Si Dixon had caught the  bus to the City so there  was only Peg, Jim and I left  in camp.  We had finished a late  dinner, Jim and I had rolled  us up a 'makin's' smoke to  suck on with our coffee, while  Peg tidied up the few dishes.  We agreed that if Bert had  good news for us he would  have been back by now. The  nagging worry that our first  venture into gyppo logging  was about to collapse into a  shamble of tired iron and  broken dreams, was just  beginning.  "Tis such a shame,"  sighed Peggy. "Such a foin  lot o' hard workin' lads with  guts enough to git out and  make thimselves a job in these  tough toims, and to see it all  fade away loik a ghost in a  cimetaryl"  Tough times they were, and  if our little dream folded we  would be arriving back in the  City and onto the slave market  about the same time as the  other seasonal workers. The  chances of finding employment at that time would be  pretty slim.  To be continued.  by Chak-Chak  Some of the action in the closely contested game between the  Klphinstone Girl's Volleyball Team and Mew Westminster. New  West won the same 17 - 15.  Gibsons Harbour is plugged  to capacity with boats, both  pleasure craft and work  boats. Many of the fishermen  have tied up their boats for  the winter, which is usual  practice for salmon fishermen.  Others change the gear on  their boats and take a try at  a different type of fishery,  one of which is prawn and  shrimp trawling or trap  fishing.  I was talking to Doug of the  Elusive Quest who has been  trap fishing for prawns on a  regular basis over the last  couple of years. He has a  market for fresh frozen  prawns, boxed and delivered  to a freezer truck at Gibsons  wharf. So make a point of  looking for the Elusive Quest  and ask if they have small  sized prawns for sale.  I have a recipe that I have  originated which combines  both the Japanese and Chinese method of food preparation and which 'retains  the delicate flavour of shrimp  or prawns. I call it Shrimp and  Vegetable Donburi.  Donburi is the Japanese  name for bowl and they have  many types of Donburi each  with its own special use.  This recipe calls for one  donburi for each person, a  bowl that will hold 12 fluid  ounces. I prefer a thick handmade type, that holds the  heat, one with tapered sides  that is suitable for chopsticks;  of course if you use a fork then  this is not important.  Shrimp and Vegetable  Donburi  (for 2 or mon)  1 lb. shrimp tails (small side  strips or prawns with 2" tails)  1/4 cup cooking oil  1 clove garlic, peeled  12 oz. cauliflower, cut in small  pieces  2/3 cup water (hot)  1 tsp. salt  1   package   (12   oz.)   frozen  peas (unthawed)  1   tbsp.   cornstarch   mixed  with 2 tbsp. cold water  1 cup brown rice, cooked and  kept hot.  Methodi-  While rice is cooking (45  minutes) prepare the shrimp  and vegies etc. About fifteen  minutes before mealtime heat  oil in wok and cook garlic,  remove before it turns brown.  Add shrimp and stir-fry in  hot oil until colour changes  (about   one    minute)    then  remove to heated bowl and  keep warm. Stir-fry cauliflower about two minutes,  add water and salt, cover  and simmer for about five  minutes, turn to high heat and  add frozen peas, stir-fry until  peas thaw and separate.

Ingredients found in cold  products include antihistamines, decongestants, analgesics and cough syrups.  Anli-histaniines (diphenhydramine, brompheniramine,  chlorpheniramine) cause some  "drying" effect in people with  runny noses. Sedation is very  common and people driving or  operating machinery should  avoid ihis class of drugs.

Sprays are the easiest to  use. They should be administered with the patient in  the standing or sitting position. Squeeze the bottle  once in each nostril.  Nose drops are more convenient to administer to  children especially under six  years of age. The person  should be lying down with the  head lower than the shoulders. After the drops are  administered, the person  should breathe through the  mouth and remain lying down  for five minutes.  An alternative to topical  decongestants are oral decongestants (phenylephrine,  Dimetapp   (R)   or   pseudo-  ephedrine, Sudafed (R),  Eltor 120 (R)). Oral decongestants last longer than  topical decongestants but they  do not give as pronounced  an effect as the topical decongestants. Patients with  high blood pressure, overactive thyroid, diabetes or  heart disease should use these  products only on the advice  of a physician or pharmacist.  As the cold progresses a  cough can develop. Coughing  can help dispel the accumulation of phlegm (productive  cough). A cough can also be  an irritation to the throat  (non productive).  Expectorants (ammonium  chloride, Benylin (R), or  guaifenesin, Kobitussin (R))  are useful to facilitate the  removal of phlegm. Increased  fluid intake and a vaporizer  will also help.  The addition of codeine or  dextromethoraphen will make  the cough suppressant useful in dry nagging coughs.  Throat lozenges are used  primarily to relieve some of  the pain associated with sore  throats. They usually contain  an antibacterial agent in  combination with a local  anesthetic. There are many  brands on the market that are  equally effective. Gargling  with warm salt water or a  mouthwash will also decrease discomfort.  Cold Facta.  1) A cold will last  seven days in spite of medication used. If it continues  over seven days contact your  doctor.  2) Read the medication label  carefully to refresh your  memory as to what the pharmacist instructed you to do.  3) In addition to medication,  rest, drink plenty of fluids and  eat nutritional food.

It's a department of the  forestry where you can write  for information.  Here are a couple of examples of the questions  people are asking.  'Is slashburning the only  way to reduce the fire hazard  and prepare logged areas for  reforestation'? and 'Why do  larch trees lose their needles  in the fall'?  If you have any questions,  send them to, Ask About  ForesU, c/o Canadian Forestry Association of B.C.,  #410-1200 West Pender  Street,     Vancouver,     B.C.

Such a  quips to mutter at your car in piece came in a couple of  the morning.  Please remember to be  careful when you are filling  your radiator with anti-freeze.  It's good for your car, but it's  death on your pets. For some  weeks ago from the Canadian  tourist board, on ice-fishing in  B.C.  According to the experts  in that department, Kamloops  is the hot spot for eastern  reason animals are attracted' brook  and  Kamloops trout,  to the stuff and will clean up   Information on hotels, gear,  any that is spilled. It may be  tasty, but if you are careless  enough to let this happen,  you'll be in the market for  a new companion.  Ask about the forest  I've been receiving infor-  packed lunches and the best  lakes are noted.  Sounds great, except for a  short news item in the outdoor section of Friday's  Province. 'Provincial sports  fishing lakes are endangered  because of insufficient government funding, says a Kamloops fisheries biologist.'  Apparently one or two trout  lakes are lost each year to  sculpins and other non-game  fish. The cure for this has  been to treat the waters  with rotenone, kill All the fish  and then restock with trout.  Nasty as it sounds, this is  what has been going on.  The price of the poison has  jumped and there is no indication that the provincial  government is going to foot  the bill.  John Cartwright from the  fish and wildlife says that the  lakes will be valueless to the  tourist industry if they cannot  provide sport fishing and this  could happen in five years.  I guess the tourists better  get out on the ice while there  are still fish, or start looking  up some good recipes for  sculpin.  Dog salmon ran  The dog (chum) salmon are  now in the local creeks.  Anderson in Pender is full of  them, there are one or two in  the deeper water above the  bridge at Wilson Creek, I  couldn't see any in Roberts or  Chapman Creeks. Twin  Creeks are the same, although  I heard that they were finning  at the creek mouth. Les Brown  at the Porpoise Bay Campsite  reports that there is as good a  run there as he's ever seen.  Some of the pools have 50 to  60 fish in them. He feels that  the restoration work done by  the fisheries this fall was  successful and the fish are  getting up without too much  trouble.  If you go to have a look  at them, which is worthwhile,  remember that it is illegal to  harm them. Try to be careful  not to disturb them. You  would not like to be disturbed while you are propagating our species and considering they only do it once  in their lifetime, they deserve  to be allowed to get on with it.  Another fool shoots the  bullet  Elsewhere in the paper  I've written about the bear on  Boyle Road that had to be  shot as it was getting into  livestock. I have a photograph  of the dead bear. I would like  a photograph of the idiot that  shot it with a .22 then let it  escape to become a rogue.  I guess it's too much to  expect that a person foolish  enough to take pot shots at  a bear with a low calibre  firearm would feel responsible  enough to report his/her  foolishness to the conservation officer so that he  could act accordingly.  Their rationale for this is  that if the 'bar' is going after  livestock, it might go after a  kid too. In reality what they  want to do is kill something  (hum salmon spawning in Anderson Creck in Pender Harbour,  big to bolster a sagging ego.   animal. It was wounded by  There is no positive proof that  this is the case in this instance, but if it turned out to  be so, I would suggest that  this would be as far as we  have to go to get meat to  bait the next trap.  Bears are a problem, it  would be foolish to say they  are not. We are invading their  territory with our urban  spread and there is bound to  be conflict. Even though last  week's bear killed some livestock and stole feed, I can't  feel it in my heart to blame the  gun shots and left to fend for  itself in any way it could.  Where the flsh are  Up the creeks and that's  about the only place for the  time being. The Hole in the  Wall at Horseshoe Bay is  picking up a bit for winter  springs. There are fish being  taken early in the morning  and about four in the afternoon at the entrance to Secret  Cove and Merrill in Gibsons  says there are a few around  but they are scattered. The  odd coho is still around, but  it's pretty well the tail end  of them. This is also thc tail  end of the fishing reports. If  and when the winter spring  fishing picks up, I'll let you  know.

Director Almond also felt that the question of who would be  appointed lo these bodies needed further clarification.  "II we're going to replace the leehnical Planning Committee  with something. I want to know exaetlv whal." Almond said.  1 he majority ol directors on ihe board appear to feel that in the  long run. the new Act will result in greater local conlrol over  planning matters, since thc local preparation of "Official Plans"  becomes mandatory.

WHY DO NEW HOMES COST SO MUCH  That question is voiced by every potential home buyer, so the Real Estate Board  of Greater Vancouver provides the following answer.  The lot cost of any new home is becoming a larger percentage of the total cost  each year. Low cost parcels of developable land ��� particularly within the metropolitan  areasof most cities are virtually gone. The land component of any house transaction  is made up of the purchase price of this raw land that has become so precious and  hard to locate, the holding costs of the land until all local approvals for development  are received, and the cost of servicing the parcel of land lo the increasingly high  municipal standards imposed on Ihe developer.  Building materials have continually risen in price over the past decade. All  building products which use some form of oil base have doubled or tripled since 1975  as the prices of petroleum products have skyrocketed due to threatened shortages  and producer-imposed price rises. Other building products have become more  expensive as manufacturing costs rise. The many trades and sub-trades needed lo  build houses have raised and will continue to raise Iheir prices as these people, like  ceryone else, try to stay even with the present rate of inflation.  The buyer himself is nol entirely free of some blame in the increasing cosl of new  homes. Today, home buyers demand more and more features in a home before they  will buy. A few decades ago, purchasers were happy with a basic shell house with one  bathroom, no built-in appliances, carpets or landscaping and only roughed in  plumbing and features on other levels. Today the purchaser demands a finished two  or three bathroom home with fitted carpets, fireplaces, built-in appliances and even  such luxury additions as landscaping and shrubbery. Any increase in features above  the basic shelter of a quarter century ago helps Ihe total end price of housing rise ever  higher.  As fuel costs increase yearly, insulation requirements of purchasers are rising  and Ihis will add to the cost of housing. Double paned glass, exlra thick insulation  batting and installed storm windows and doors will be added to the end price of Ihe  new housing. Purchasers will, however, see a saving in years to come by living in  energy conserving houses.
