 'hruary 1st  w  88.8  V  ���  The 10:30 am sailing from  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay  started up again today,  February 1, and this time it is  going to stay, according to  MLA Harold Long. The Ferry  Corporation announced its  decision last Thursday as a  result of extensive lobbying and  cancellation.  "No doubt Ihe public display  that Gordon (Wilson) arranged  helped me with my endeavour,"  said Long. "But that's not why  they made the decision. I've  spent the last two weeks working with the Ferry Corporation  and various ministers to press  my point and it paid off."  Gordon Wilson, however,  appears to be less concerned  with who gets the credit than  continuing ihe battle for improved ferry service.  "I'm delighted that they've  restored the 10:30 sailing," he  ning ferry is back to stay!  told the Coasl News. "What we  have to work on now is getting  the late sailing on weekends,  and the 7:30 am sailing to  Powell River."  He added, "The government  is going to have to wake up and  realize that there has to be more  frequent service to the Sunshine  Coast." He suggested that  smaller ferries would make this  more cost-effective, and criticized the B.C. Ferry Corporation's  approach to managing the ferry  system.  "The entire operations of the  B.C. Ferry Corporation need to  be reviewed," he said, "And a  fundamental political decision  has to be made to cover B.C.  ferries under the Ministry of  Highways."  A key factor in Long's  presentation to the Ferry Corporation  was a  brief lo the  premier from the Sunshine  Coasl members of the Mackenzie Constituency Association.  The brief is quoted below.  "It has been agreed that  transportation is the number  one concern of the Sunshine  Coast. That concern includes  the ferries, the highway including the Gibsons bypass, and  the proposed Sechell canal.  "Il has been pari of the  philosophy of the Social Credit  Party, ever since ihe days of  Premier WAC Bennel's first  government, to encourage new  developmeni and growth by  providing transportation and a  basic infrastructure. This was  the philosophy behind the extension of the B.C. Railway and  the developmeni of Roberts  Bank.  "As free enterprisers, we all  know thai business will establish  and nourish if opportunities are  presented. The return to the  province is not counted in  returns directly to the services  provided, but rather in the  growth of business and industry, the provision of new  jobs and the 'spin-off benefits  which are experienced.  "Both the District of Sechelt  and the Town of Gibsons have  signed 'Partners in Enterprise'  agreements with the province  and are working to develop new  industry. Both municipalities  are providing basic municipal  services but neither has the  authority to provide stability in  our most crucial transportation  link - the ferries.  "We understand that the  B.C. Ferry Authority has been  given the mandate lo operate  the ferries like a business. We  do nol find fault with their  economic decision lo eliminate  the   10:30   am   sailing   from  Langdale. It was made in the  best interest of their balance  sheet.  "The true 'cost' of the 10:30  am sailing, however, must take  into consideration factors which  are not reflected in ihe Ferry  Authority balance sheet - the  cost of trucks and drivers spending an unnecessary two hours  waiting for a ferry; the cost to  our business people of having to  catch an 8:30 am ferry lo attend  any appointment prior to 2:00  pm; the cost to our tourist industry of ihe disgruntled  traveller who arrives at the terminal to discover he must wait  up to four hours and vows  never to return. All of these are  costs which must enter into ihe  provincial equation but do nol  impact upon the Ferry Authority balance sheet.  "The communities on the  Sunshine Coast are not  self-  sustaining. We are dependent  upon the Lower Mainland for  most of our goods and many  services. That, we believe, is one  of the determining factors in the  decision to include the Sunshine  Coast in Economic Development Region 2. We believe,  therefore, that it is counterproductive to economic developmeni for the government to  allow a four-hour gap in our  service to the Lower Mainland.  "The decision to provide  year-round two hourly service  on the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale  run must be political, just as is  the decision to provide highways or railways to other parts  of ihe province. Only the  government can weigh all of Ihe  implications of the reduclion in  service and give direction to  reverse the Ferry Authority  decision. We ask that you do  The Sunshine  iHifi  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25�� per copy on news stands     February 1,1988      Volume 42      Issue 5  $35,000 lost to Coast  Failure to co-operate  continues to hurt  Sechelt's decision to opt out  of ihe Economic Development  Commission will cost this area  almost $35,000 in provincial  funding, the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board (SCRD) found  out last Thursday. At the  regular board meeting the directors received a copy of a letter  written to EDC chairman  Maurice Egan from R.M.  Gubbe from the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs.  In the letter, Gubbe explained  lhat regional districts are not actually eligible for funding  through the Economic Development Program (COED). Municipalities which establish an  economic developmeni commission employing a full-time officer, can receive operating  grams of up to $25,000 per  year, depending on their  population base. Gibsons is  eligible for $1,908 and Sechelt  probably slightly more than  that, with ihe increased population base which came wilh  restructuring.  The $37,500 grant that the  EDC received last year was a  result of 'top-up' funding which  the Ministry of Economic  Development provides when  two or more municipalities  operate a joint committee with a  full-time officer.  The letter concluded "The  financial consequence of a decision by either Sechelt or Gibsons to discontinue its participation with the other in joint support of the commission is the  loss of top-up funding from the  province. However, and more  importantly, the economic  development effort also may be  made less effeclive if such a  decision were lo be taken. I  hope that a decision endorsing  cooperative endeavour will be  made instead."  But chances appear to be slim  that Mr. Gubbe's hopes will be  fulfilled. Alderman Bob Wilson, who represents Sechelt on  the regional board had nothing  to say during ihe ensuing discussion, and Gibsons mayor Diane  Strom made her position clear.  "There is no chance of the  EDC, under current jurisdiction, continuing to exist", she  stated firmly.  Area A Director Gordon Wilson, in attempting to clarify the  situation asked if it weren't  possible for Gibsons and Sechelt to remain participants on  paper, and still establish their  own economic development  committees.  Strom, however, suggested  that the two municipalities  might prefer to form their own  joint committee, thereby qualifying for the top-up funding  and leaving the regional district  out in the cold.  The Coast News contacted  Mr. Gubbe the following day to  clarify some points of the  guidelines for COED funding.  Gubbe confirmed, at that time,  thai should they choose to form  a joint committee, hire a full-  time officer, and come up with  $37,500 of their own money,  Gibsons and Sechelt would  qualify for a possible $37,500  top-up gram.  Schools for community use  The moment of victory! See story below for account of Tony Duffy's latest ring triumph.  ���Jan Vulraiii'r phntn  The School Board has approved Ihe use of Iwo unused  schools at Egmont and Irvines  Landing by residents of the  communities. However, the  satellite dish will nol be  available at Egmont, as it was  decided to move it lo ihe Pender  Harbour Secondary School.  School Board employees have  been given guidelines lor dealing with abusive phone calls. If,  after a reasonable attempt to  solve Ihe contentious issue, the  abuse continues, employees  have been instructed to hang up  on the caller.  The Board will write a letter  lo the Sechell Council in support of several parents in (heir  attempt lo retain Ihe slop sign al  the intersection of Trail and Anchor Avenues. The parents  claim that the removal of the  sign would be a safely hazard (o  children in the area.  A letter from Mrs. Margaret  Gooldrup,   Chairman  of  the  Parent's Group of Pender Harbour Secondary School, requested thai ihe Board totally  ban smoking in the schools, but  il was decided lhat an educational program rather than  complete prohibition of smoking would be more effective.  Duffy wins a big one  Tony Duffy moved another  major step toward the Canadian  Olympic Boxing Team last  Saturday evening while the  deafening cheers of Sunshine  Coasl fans echoed through the  PNE Gardens in Vancouver, as  he won a three-two split decision over 24 year old Ron  Paskie of the Astoria Boxing  Club.  Earlier in the day, Paskie had  knocked-out his opponent in  the first round, which had left  many officials and observers in  doubt as to Duffy's ability to  out-box him. But the overwhelming enthusiasm  of the  Sunshine Coasl contingent as  Duffy stepped into the ring,  seemed to affect the whole audience.  Duffy stuck closely to the  fight plan, which was to use excessive lateral movement, catch  Paskie coming in, and frustrate  him when he was unable to land  his infamous 'bomb'.  After outscoring and outsmarting Paskie in the first  round, Duffy had a more difficult time in the second round  with Paskie charging and flailing, but still unable to alter the  strategies that Duffy's camp  had prepared.  In the third round, Duffy  once again took control leaving  Paskie desperate to land the  knock-out blow.  Three judges scored the  match 60-57 Duffy, one judge  had him losing 59-58 Paskie,  another judge had it 60-58  Paskie. However, the majority  of knowledgeable boxing fans  from the Sunshine Coast believe  Duffy had won more convincingly than a split decision.  The win lakes Duffy to the  Canadian National Championships in Edmonton on March  18-20, where he will finally meel  another B.C. champion, Manny  Sobrei. On three prior occasions  this year, Sobrei and Duffy  were slated to fight, but each  time the match was cancelled.  In the main event on Salur-  day, Sobrei won an unimpressive decision over inexperienced Israel Hinojosa of  Tacoma.  Tony Duffy nexl steps into  the ring on February 9 al the  Queensborough Smoker in New  Westminster. Tickets to the  event are $50 and include dinner, the fight and an open bar.  Reservations can be made  through Terry Duffy at  886-2690.  Jack Warn  dies suddenly  At approximately 9:30 am lasl Saturday, ihe Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department was called to atlend a chimney  fire on Gower Poinl Road. Upon arrival, they found the male  resident, John George (Jack) Warn unconcious nearby, having apparently fallen from a ladder while attempting to put  OUl ihe fire.  Warn was pronounced dead upon arrival al the Gibsons  Medical Clinic, presumably having suffered a major coronary  atlack. An autopsy is being conducted.  Funeral arrangements are being made by Devlin Funeral  Home. Call for details.  Joan Warn, safe and sound and living with friends, asks  that charitable donations be made in lieu of flowers and men-  lions Jack's support of the Sunshine Coast Central America  Support Committee, the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee  and ihe Gibsons Landing Theatre Project.  Veitch to visit  The Honourable Elwood N. Veitch, Minister of State for  Mainland/Southwest Region, will hold a public meeting  February 4 at Greenecourt Hall, 5810 Medusa Street, Sechelt,  B.C. Public presentations begin at 9 am.  For further information, contact Gary Swift, Government  Agent for Sechelt, at 102 Teredo Square, Box 950, Sechelt,  B.C. VON 3A0, telephone: 885-5187.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since Coast News, February 1,1988  Comment  Congratulations  The coincidence of sanity and sunshine on the same  weekend is almost more than a long term resident has the  right to expect on the Sunshine Coast at the back-end of  January, but there they both were on the same weekend  -the announcement that our mid-morning ferry was back  to slay and the sun shining to boot.  Congratulations to all who spoke or wrote or walked in  protest in the matter of the reinstatement of the ferry, but  from this perspective most of the credit should go to the  members of the Social Credit constituency party who  wrote the brief to the premier, which we reprint in the  news coverage this week.  At last the argument has been cogently made that it is  false to estimate the importance economically of a good  ferry service using only ihe bottom line of the ferry balance  sheet.  The governing parly in B.C. has long espoused the view  that money spent on transportation was future gain. The  extension of that philosophy lo this part of the province is  most welcome.  Though all contributed to this success, those who framed the persuasive and sensible brief have made a poinl  which may bear better fruit yet.  Where's  the benefit?  From this perspective, no jurisdiction has more to gain  from cooperation on the Sunshine Coast than Gibsons.  The town stands on difficult terrain, has an antiquated infrastructure, and cash problems.  Soon, now, ihe mayor of Gibsons should be asked how  her continued iruculence benefits her community.  For Jack Warn  Along with many friends on the Sunshine Coast we were  saddened by the sudden passing of Jack Warn. Until the  end he was actively involved in seeking to make this a better world for those he perceived as being less fortunate  than himself.  Whal belter epitaph should a man seek?  5 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board voted to reverse  itself on four zoning bylaws dealt with two weeks ago.  The decision to reverse the rezoning decisions followed  apparent irregularities in procedure challenged by  directors John Shaske of Area F and Pat Murphy of Area  B and what was reported to be intense lobbying of  regional directors by various sectors of the public.  10 YEARS AGO  Several residents of Ihe Sunshine Coast travelled to  Lasqueti Island to attend further hearings on the controversial powerline that Hydro proposes to erect from  Cheekeye near Squamish to Dunsmuir on Vancouver  Island, crossing the Sunshine Coast then island-  hopping to Vancouver Island.  In a statement made on behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, Director Hoemberg said that the board  rejected all three of the proposed Hydro routes,  because they had not been persuaded that social and  environmental concerns had received more than token  attention in Hydro's deliberations.  15 YEARS AGO  A copy of the Coast News from the last week of  January 1973 is reported missing from the files. A  reward is offered for its recovery.  20 YEARS AGO  At the Twilight Clambake. A colourful and tuneful  kaleidoscope of beautiful Florida scenery, catchy tunes  and Elvis Presley, not forgetting a bevy of bikini-clad  surfside nymphs.  25 YEARS AGO  The Howe Sound Women's Institute is celebrating  their 37th year.  Gibsons Municipal Council is ready to assist the Gibsons Kinsmen Club in its efforts to raise funds for a  $40,000 health centre.  30 YEARS AGO  A considerable amount of mail was handled during  the Christmas season. Postmaster J. Marshall reports  the staff handled a 15 percent increase over last year.  "It is a sure sign the area is growing," Mr. Marshall said.  35 YEARS AGO  One local firm in this community reports that its annual road tax amounts to approximately $6000. This  seems rather a high premium, he thinks, for the privilege  of driving over manv miles of potholes.  40 YEARS AGO  Excerpts from letter to the Editor: "The big question  is: Why a beer parlour in Gibsons? Because it will stop  bootlegging. Whal an argument. We will have bootlegging as long as there is such a large profit in alcoholic  drinks. Another answer is that it will give us a new hotel.  What a detriment, such as a cesspool right on our main  street...Also, situated right across from the dance hall It  will bring new temptation to our young people."

Wyngaerl  Travelling by Union Steamships  Getting to Vancouver- 50 years ago  by Richard F. Kennett  Half a century ago travel to  Vancouver was a three day love  affair with Union Steamships.  One day going, one day staying  and, especially on a Thursday, a  long day's journey homeward  bound.  Once or twice a year the  bright lights beckoned us country folk whether it was shopping, sightseeing, the exhibition,  visiting friends or just a change  of pace for aboul $1 per trip.  Change of pace for  humourous Chuck Winegarden  was his annual trip to the  Orangeman's parade and  festivities each July 12 in New  Westminsler, strengthening ties  and ideals that bind his country.  Chuck was the last of the early settlers to be buried in Gibsons Pioneer Park Cemetery  and surely he would be pleased  to know that up until a few  years ago, you could not  become Mayor of Toronto  unless you had ties with ihe  Orangemen.  Over the years, Union Steamship's puddlejumper .S'.V Corn-  ox, SS Capilano and the comfortable Lady I'am (said once lo  be originally ihe Duke of Con-  naught's yacht) and later the  newly built l.ady Rose served  Gambier, Keats and West Howe  Sound.  Of a  morning  the  Union  Dock was a beehive of activity  as passengers and freight were  loaded with any number of  ships departing for upcoast  points around nine in the morning.  Homeward bound ihe sail  past Brockton Point, Stanley  Park and slipping gingerly  through the First Narrows  where caissons anchored in the  swift waters, was a sure sign our  Lions Gale Bridge was  abuilding.  On past sleepy West Vancouver with ils backdrop of  North Shore Mountains, whose  crests and ridges outlined what  Fairview, Kitsilano and Point  Grey residents aptly fabled  'Sleeping Beauty'.  Rounding Point Atkinson  and on up into Howe Sound it  was a cook's tour, sometimes  calling at Camp Artiban as well  as Gambier Harbour, West Bay  and on up Howe Sound to  Union's Seaside Park (Porl  Mellon) and finally down the  wesl shore of Howe Sound wilh  calls at Hopkins Landing,  Granthams Landing eventually  Gibsons Landing by about three  in the afternoon returning to  Vancouver by way of Keats and  Eastbourne.  On boal day, Gibsons' dock  was Ihe hub of activity as locals  and summer campers would  flood the dock if only to yell  'goodbye daddv' of a summer  Sunday night as the breadwinner of the family relumed to  Vancouver, leaving his wife and  children to the beach cottage for  the summer holidays.  Pappy Winn's post office at  the head of the wharf was also  taxed to its limit with the  onslaught of summer campers.  The younger Harry Winn with  his two laxis as well as Guy  Fisher, with his taxi and truck,  I  kept things moving from  dockside while the old parrot on  Pappy Winn's verendah would  spout out 'ello Arry, ello Arry'  knowing full well when Harry's  taxi came up the ramp past his  perch out on the porch.  Harry Winn and his wife also  held the command post of the  government telephone and  telegraph service for many  years.  \  A Winter's #  Tale  -:*���  Yesterday the fields were only gray with scattered snow.

Lawrence  I  Gibsons library facing difficulties  1987 was another busy year  for the Gibsons Public Library.  There was once again a steady  growth in memberships and circulation. Memberships now  total 1,413 adults and children.  It is interesting to note lhal for  each member from Ihe town of  Gibsons, ihere are two members  from outside the town. The circulation of books, paperbacks  and magazines also showed an  increase al 40,527. The collection is now close to I6,(XX). Our  hours of opening remain the  same at 20 hours per week.  The large prim books from  library services continue lo be  popular, as do the German,  Spanish and Italian books from  ihe multilingual department,  There was also an increase in  ihe use of the open shelf services.  Early in the year we were  pleased to have bookmarks  printed locally through a gram  received from library services.  The various events throughout the year kept the librarian,  Pam Feichtner and the  children's librarian, Gail  Reimer, particularly busy. In  the spring they assisted the  board in hosting an open house,  as a start to National Book  Week. Ted Henniker organized  the book sale on May 2, as our  usual finale to that week. Mr.  Henniker also organised the  libraries' very successful participation in a community  garage sale later in the year.  Early in the summer, Jim  Looney, our liaison person  from library services visited  with us and we discussed the  library and its level of service.  Margarel Long, our area  representative lo the BCLTA  met wilh us in Ihe fall and Ihe  main topic of discussion was the  provincial govcmmenl task  force. In late October, Fred  Dowdic, our chairman made a  submission to the task force on  behalf of Ihe library.  As Ihe librarian was in  Kamloops al the time of ihe  BCLTA conference 'Positive  Partnerships', she was pleased  to have the opportunity to at-  lend two of the workshops and  a general meeling of the  BCLTA. Ii was an Informative  and worthwhile experience. It  was also Interesting to meet  other librarians and trustees and  exchange ideas.  Our 25 volunteers are a par-  licularly hard working and  dedicated group. In 1987 approximately 2,800 volunteer  hours were worked. However,  because of the climate and appeal of Ihe Sunshine Coasl and  the lifestyle of the volunteers  they arc frequently inundated  with visitors or are away  themselves. This means, on  average, we are coping with  over 14 cancellations a month.  It was, therefore, a great help lo  us that we were able to hire a  local university student,  Rosalyn Lee, through the  'Challenge '87" programme,  for three months of the summer.  Early in the year a work and  coffee party was held for the  volunteers to check shelving and  give everyone an opportunity to  meet each other. In December  the librarians and volunteers  had  a  small get-together  to  welcome in the festive season.  The librarian organised a  trustees workshop, which was  held December 4. Sixteen trustees and librarians attended  from the libraries and reading  centers of ihe Sunshine Coasl.  Bryan Bacon, ihe chief librarian  of Burnaby Public Library,  gave the workshop. We considered ourselves most fortunate  to have him share his expertise  wilh us and make il such a worthwhile event.  A greal deal of lime was  spcnl by the librarians in 1987  preparing material and attending meetings in connection  with the study Instigated by the  regional board. In March,  Kalhryn leeney, began ihe  sludy on the feasibility of a  regional library system on the  Sunshine Coast, In August the  results were officially released.  Not surprisingly, wilh a population of only 16,000 it was found  thai a regional library system  was not economically feasible.  It was recommended thai a less  formal structure be implemented, along ihe lines of a  cooperative system, similar in  design to that suggested by  Mary Leask, of library services,  in her report of 1979. It was also  recommended that a referendum be held but to date this has  not happened. The philosophy  and recommendations of the  study were agreed to, in principle, by the trustees and librarians of the coast, also by the  representatives of the regional  board, the municipality of  Sechell and the town of Gibsons. However, ihe immediate  and  main  concern  was  that  monies be made available, as  soon as possible, in order to  maintain the present standards  and to continue gradual growth.  In retrospect, therefore, 1987  was another successful year.  However, ihe librarians have  Ihe frustrated feeling of exerting  a lol of energy to barely 'mark  lime'. There has been a library  In Gibsons since Ihe early I900's  and 1987 was our 35th anniversary as an associated library. In  1985 our lirsl paid employee  was hired, our children's  librarian. However, she continues to receive less than the  average clerk earns on the coasl  and in addition works many  volunteer hours. During the  past live years membership and  circulation have more than  doubled. There has also been  considerably more use of the  library as a study and research  center. It is increasingly difficult  lo plan and sel goals without a  small nucleus of adequately  paid staff. There is also a  desperate need for more space.  We sincerely hope that the  library may continue to provide  for some of the recreational,  cultural and educational needs  of the community. We trust,  therefore, that 1988 will be a  year that the board of trustees  will be more than usually active  in seeking the recognition and  support for the library that we  feel our community deserves.  We also appeal to all the levels  of local government to be sure  that they provide their fair share  of adequate and appropriate  funding for the libraries and  reading centers of the Sunshine  Coast. Coast News, February 1,1988  etters to the Editor  Ml, ���        I        II  I '  Abortion ruling sad and irritating  Editor:  The Supreme Court decision  to strike down the federal abortion law has been hailed as a victory for the women of Canada.  As a man and minister, I find  that both sad and irritating in its  arrogant assumption that Henry  Morgentaler and his associates  speak for all the women of  Canada.  There are a significant  number of Canadian women  who find abortion on demand  morally repulsive and see no  cause for celebration in this ruling. The victory, if there is one,  is for women and men alike  who advocate the most permissive of attitudes to abortion.  Let us not confuse this fact with  condescending platitudes about  'rights' many women do not  wish to have.  Those who are active in the  pro-life movement frequently  find that it is men who are anxious to secure access to abortion  as a quick and easy absolution  of responsibility, whereas for  women the choice is usually  much more agonizing. Some  who take the time and trouble  to examine all the implications  and consequences of abortion  for themselves and their  preborn children choose not to  go through with the procedure.  They find on-going emotional  and material support in their  courageous decision, but not  from those who use the  euphemism 'pro-choice'.  Others who have aborted on  the basis of insufficient evidence  have felt cheated and deceived  by abortionists who were quick  to assure them that there was no  life there to destroy and that  there need be no fear of medical  or psychological consequences.  The existence of such groups as  Women Exploited by Abortion  points to this reality.  Why is it that abortion advocates are so bitterly opposed  to the concept of 'informed  consent', by means of which a  woman can make a real choice  based on an intelligent  understanding of all that is involved in an abortion. I recall a  conversation my wife had with a  pro-abortion activist who had  herself had an abortion. It  became painfully apparent that  this woman could not allow  herself to consider the possibility that she just might have  destroyed a human life and this  lay behind her vehement advocacy of a no-questions-asked  approach to the subject.  Morgentaler's commitment  to the cause of legalized abortion for women is beyond question. However, it is debatable  whether his primary motivation  is the well-being of women. In a  1967 issue of The Canadian  Humanist, (around the time he  was beginning his campaign)  Morgentaler wrote that it was  necessary for humanists to  counteract the influence of the  churches and this should be  done by focusing on selected  issues like abortion. The clear  implication is that for Morgentaler, abortion is a means to an  end, the undermining of  religion. This accounts for his  persistent caricaturing of ami-  Waterway essential  Editor:  A waterway through Sechelt  from the outside water to Porpoise Bay could be the best and  biggest thing that ever happened  to Sechelt and possibly a boon  to British Columbia.  To build a canal of this  nature would create work and  money for the entire peninsula.  This is a shot in the arm that  Sechelt really needs.  The revenue would be terrific  and if it took a hundred years to  pay for it - so what?  Logs are being utilized in  smaller sizes and Sechelt Inlet  will never be without wood. To  tow them to market via Sechelt  rather than through the  Skookumchuk   would   make  economic sense and be a lot  safer. Anyone in the log producing business would take advantage of it.  Ultimately, Jervis Inlet water  traffic could be using the  Sechelt Waterway.  Logs, gravel, fish, tourism  and many paying concessions  using this canal could bring a  revenue that no one thought existed.  Anyone who tries to talk this  venture down should think  about it.

North  America's leading opponent of  abortion, Dr. Bernard Nathen-  son, is by his own confession an  atheistic humanist. (Nathenson,  it will be remembered, spearheaded the drive lo legalize  abortion in the United States 15  years ago, only to have his mind  changed by his research into the  science of fetology).  And there are others, including some in this community. However, lor those of us  who do approach the issue from  a religious poinl of view, there is  comfort in the knowledge thai  one day justice will be done and  the rights of men, women and  children alike will be truly  recognized. To this end we con  tinue to work and pray.  We cordially invite all women  and men, including Dr.  Morgentaler, to join us in seeking God's kingdom and his  righteousness.  J.

The proposed schedule, supplied by Maverick Coach Lines, would provide  two return trips daily from Gibsons lo Pender Harbour and  points between, at a cost of  $475 per day.  A night run up and down the  coast would cost $80 per night.  Bui Area E director Jim  Gurney stated emphatically,  "Apart from Area A, the last  thing we need in this area is  another bus running up and  down the highway."  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  agreed, "Most of our residents  live off the highway", she explained.  Gurney also pointed out that  the SCRD is tied into a contract  with BC Transit and would not  be able to participate in another  transportation agreement.  Chairman Peggy Connor will  be writing to Mayor Koch, informing him that the SCRD  would nol be able to participate  in his plans.  These sprinters are participating in a track and field clinic being  held al Chatelech Secondun in Sechell ever) Saturday at 10 am for  the nexl Iwo months. It's open to individuals from 12 years of age  and up interested in noth competing and coaching.    km Collins photo  Meeting matters  l>> ken Collins  The staff al Sechell  Municipal Hall have made il  clear to the Coast News, thai  they in no way were preventing  media coverage of lasl Friday's  special council meeling. In fact,  Municipal Clerk Malcolm  Shanks slated he did not even  know there was a meeting until  he found himself in it.  The purpose of the meeling,  according to Alderman Nancy  MacLarty, who stated she had  much to do with instigating the  event but also did not know il  would be a 'special meeling',  was to clarify two items of  business with Mayor Bud Koch.  There was fell to be some  degree of urgency because the  mayor was planning on laking  holidays and would be  unavailable for a couple of  weeks.  The first issue was the proposed canal project and the  mayor's use of ihe pronoun  'we'. When Elwood Vielch,  minister in charge of Economic  Region 2, comes lo the area,  Koch had planned lo have a  private individual give a Sechell  canal study proposal lo the  minister.  Apparently council had never  formally discussed  or  agreed  upon any kind of canal sludy  proposal.  The second issue was the  mailer of who was paying the  $I5(XI foi an artist's rendition of  whal a canal through Sechell  would look like, and also concerned the mayor's use of the  pronoun 'we'. Deputy Mayor  Mike Shanks has confirmed  thai the money was paid with a  Sechell municipal cheque out of  municipal funds.  Alderman MacLarty slated  thai when she initially asked the  mayor, "Who was paying for  the artwork?" he replied, "We  arc," and she had no recollection of that decision ever having  passed through council. She was  also upset lhal the commission  had gone to an 'off the coast'  artist.  Deputy Mayor Mike Shanks  staled that the reason money  had been paid out of municipal  funds was lor expediency and  convenience. There were 10  private individuals who were  going lo contribute to the cost  of ihe artwork.  "Mosi of ihe money's  already been paid back," he  stated.  Deputy Mayor Mike Shanks  stated lhal ii was resolved al the  meeling thai Sechell Council  does endorse the proposal of a  canal sludy.

There might also be some  financial aid in maintaining the  boat as a heritage vessel, he explained. The board gave him  their lull support in continuing  negolialions with Vancouver  City Council.

Graham's books, Keepers of  the Light and its companion  Lights of the Inside Passage  (1985 and 1986, Harbour  Publishing), are both subtitled,  A History of British Columbia's  Lighthouses and Their Keepers,  but they are more than that.  The books transcend history  by revealing the personal, everyday lives of the men and women  who tended the beacons.  Graham accomplishes this by  including photographs, letters,  and diary entries lhat provide a  clear picture of the adventures,  heartbreaks, horrors and happiness experienced by often  oddball, loyal and courageous  lightkeepers.  All the facts are there too.  Names, dates, and events are  chronicled and supported by log  entries, maps, architectural  renderings and other assorted  documents and diagrams that  span over 100 years of  lighlkeeping on our Coast.  A chapter of Lights of the Inside Passage is devoted to Merry  Island (off Halfmoon Bay), and  those who kept the lights there,  including suspected German spy  Helen Leclerc and suspected  'psychopath' George Potts.  Donald Graham, M.A.  (History) has been a lightkeeper  for more than 10 years and now  lives with his wife and sons at  the Poinl Atkinson lighthouse.

All the work of the library is  done, in fad, by the devoted  band of volunteers, with the exception of one clerk position at  minimal pay.  There are the two librarians,  Pam Feichtner and Gail  Reimer, and the ladies who attend to Ihe checking in and out  of books, and those like Steve  While and Ted Henniker who  look after the annual book sale.  "We sorted out the books  thai no longer circulate very  much," said Ted, "and asked  Allan Crane to tell us what ones  had more than give-away value.  "Consequently we had some  coffee table books and some on  crafts that are timeless in appeal  which we could sell for $1.50 to  $3 each. Pocketbooks were less.  "Later in the year when we  took part in the Community  Flea Market at the Curling rink,  we had a table or two of quality  rummage as well as our old  books. Steve White moved the  sale of books briskly along with  his pitch of one book for a  dollar but if you take six, the  price will still be only a dollar.

The annual report of the  library shows a desperate state  of affairs facing the library this  coming year. The library is not  in debt, but it is fast running out  of operating funds.  Circulation has increased  tremendously; one Tuesday  recently a count showed 416  books and magazines checked  out. This is just over one a  minute. A busy place! And this  was not considered an unusual  day.  The growing rate of circulation presents too greal a demand on our volunteers, more  than we should expect of them.  More funding from the community (the local governments,  that is) is urgently needed for  library services throughout the  Sunshine Coasl. Library service  may cease olherwise.  Let us urge our local governments, all of them, to take the  legal steps needed to authorize  each of them to provide  reasonable funding of libraries  by means of a specific mill rate.  In the meantime, donations  by individuals can be made to  the Gibsons Library Association. Receipts for income lax  use will be issued 10 each donor.  BON VOYAGE  We wish Frank and Joanne  Pitts and son Ryan a safe  journey as Frank transfers Ihis  month to the RCMP detachment in Fort St. James.  Gibsons was Frank's first  posting six and a half years ago.  "It's pretty hard to leave this  Coast," said Frank. "A person  Committee  struck  With the announcement that  the land exchange between Construction Aggregates and the  provincial government is final,  the Sunshine Coasl Regional  District has struck a committee  to investigate purchasing 62.5  acres at the Hillside siie from  the provincial government.  At lasl Thursday's meeting of  the board, Area E Director Jim  Gurney urged Ihe directors to  ensure that the land was acquired for a forest products industrial park and petroleum  products tank farm. "We can  make it accessible to small industry as well as solving a longstanding problem on the Sunshine Coast with a petroleum  storage site."  The committee, comprised of  Gurney, Gibsons Mayor Diane  Strom, and Area C Director  Stan Dixon, will have the  authority to bargain price,  terms and conditions with the  Ministry of Forests and Lands,  but will not have the authority  to purchase the property until it  is passed by the board.

Before he joined the RCMP  Frank was a forest technician in  Newfoundland. "I studied bugs  and tree diseases."  But Frank and Joanne are  going to live in a place that  began in the fur trade in the  very early 1800's. Fort St.  James on Stuart Lake apparently is the oldest European  establishment in B.C.  Situated 60 kilometres north  of Vanderhoof, Stuart Lake  was described in 1906-7 by a  Northwest Company partner as  one "about fifty miles in length,  and from three to four miles in  breadth, stretching away to the  north-west. The view from the  fort (St. James) is one of many  islands, with the western shore  indented by small bays formed  by wooded points projecting into the lake...the snowy Rockies  in the distant (eastern) background."  Frank will put the canoe he  crafted a year ago to good use in  that region of lakes and  streams.  Happy landings.

In the  spring of 1987, the Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department requested our assistance in raising  funds needed to purchase a life  saving piece of equipment  known as the Jaws of Life.  In February, however, we  will launch the biggest fund  raising event ever. We are  presently organizing a Kinsmen  Fishing Derby that will attract  150 Kinsmen and their families  lo ihe Sunshine Coast, June 24,  25 and 26. Invitations to participate will be senl to Kinsmen  Clubs across Canada after the  first week in February.  We believe thai through the  derby ihe balance of money required to acquire the Jaws of  Life can be raised, and thai the  derby will then be an annual  project through which funds for  oiher worthwile projects can be  raised.  In order lo organize and coordinate a project of this size,  volunteers from the community  will be necessary. Local  businesses will be asked lo offer  sponsorship, and individuals  will be needed lo oversee ac-  livities that weekend. Anyone  wishing to assist us in this or  any project, please contact Kin  William McDow at 886-7633.  New members are always  welcome. Men belwecn the ages  of 21 to 45 years wishing to participate in a service club are in-  vited lo attend a meeting and  discuss how they too can  become Kinsmen. Meelings are  held every first and third Thursday evening at the Kin Hut in  Dougali Park.

For  most of its life, it was serviced  by such legendary steamboats as  The Minto and The Rossltmd.  An idyllieally beautiful community, it was famous for the  cherries and peaches its many  orchards produced in great  abundance. Now il is gone like a  dream.  Yvonne and I first became  aware of Renata's legend while  doing general research on the  Arrow Lakes' Hooding. Il was  by no means the only town lo be  inundated. Several other small  communities such as Arrowhead and Needles also went  under. But the inhabitants of  these places seemed to accept  relocation without much fuss.  Renata, somehow, was different.  There was a real feeling of  poignancy here, a genuine sense  of outrage and loss. There was  also, obviously a damn good  human story If we could manage lo track it down. It is for  prccisly this reason thai we are  sitting with Max Weisner in the  Lion's Head Pub on this Saturday afternoon in Robson.  Max, despile his vigorous  espousal of Ihe Renala legend,  was actually rather a latecomer  lo ihe lown. Originally from Ihe  Peace River country, lie did not  set foot in the lakeside community until 1946, when he was  len. His father had heard of the  place ihrough a land promoter,  liked Ihe sound of it, sold the  family farm and moved south.  Max look lo Renata's leisurely life-style like a duck to water.  He speaks with nostalgic  humour of his abortive school  days there and how lie was Ihe  despair of his leachers.  "I guess I was a bit of a  troublemaker," he laughs. "I  was always getting caught  smoking, playing hooky, sluff  like lhat."  Not surprisingly, Max terminated his education at a  relatively early age and set  aboul earning a living. He  worked on his parents' orchard  and al local sawmills, eventually  becoming a logger. (Max expressed great interest when I  told him lhal 1 spent many years  at Ihis occupation myself.)  Wc are joined by a friend of  Max's named Bing Jarcau. Bing  did nol live in Renata himself  bul has lived In Ihe immediale  area for many years.  His hobby and main area of  expertise concerns ihe steam  boats thai once plied the Arrow  Lakes and ihe other inlerior  Financial  planning  for artists  ArlsFund, a program lhal offers outlets for works by  members in 400 locations in  B.C., Alberta, Ontario, and  Quebec, is offering a seminar  on Financial Planning for Artists on February 6, al 754  Thurlow Street, 9 am to 5 pm.

GIBSONS  LANES  waterways. He shows us some  excellent photographs of The  Minto and her sister ships. The  conversation gets somewhat  side-tracked but is nonetheless  fascinating.  A local musician named Skip  also stops by the table for a  minute. He has apparently written and recorded a song about  the raising of the lakes.  Bing and Skip leave, and  Max, Yvonne and 1 proceed to  his house, preparatory to actually visiting the watery grave  of Renata.  Max and his equally good  humoured wife, Lucy, live in a  large comfortable house on one  of Robson's rustic back roads.  ("A bit too large", Lucy com-  meiils wryly, "since our three  girls left home.") It is a homey  place, full of furniture, pictures,  knick-knacks and an impressive  collection of baseball caps, one  of Max's hobbies.  They sit us down at the kitchen table and Max hauls out a  vast hoard of pictures and clippings dealing with Renata. They  tell the bittersweet fragmented  talc of a way of life lhat was  rudely terminated.  Yvonne continues lo tape  Max as he enlarges on various  details. He goes on al length  aboul Ihe incidents lhal preceded ihe flooding of Ihe lown,  how the buildings and orchards  were bulldozed and burned.  Nol all Ihe Renatans left  reluctantly, some simply look  Ihe money and ran. Bul others,  like Max deeply resented their  uprooting and held out till the  last moment, Max is certainly  no fan of BC Hydro.  "They don't give a damn for  ihe lit tic guy," he says. "Mosi  of Ihe eompensalion payments  were way less than what they  should have been."  Time is galloping by and we  have a fair distance to travel.  Since we have to take both  vehicles, Max suggests that I  ride with him in his truck and  Lucy iravel with Yvonne in her  car. This makes sense since 1  can continue talking to Max  while Yvonne gels Lucy's side  of the story.

Every single  one of us has a cranky side.  Even the Pope has his bad days.  The point is, how are you going to handle it. If you use that  energy  to  feed  yourself,  as  described by your sun position,  you can change a really nasty  ��� time into something construc-  ; tive. Here's a brief list of alter-  : natives to making the people  : around you miserable.  Aries - Exercise. Burn up that  ' surplus energy by running, play-  : ing tennis or swimming laps. If  . you don't handle lhat energy  ] properly, you could lose a lot of  friends.  Taurus - Walk, on beaches,  forests, up mountains, anywhere thai will gel you close to  nature.  Gemini - Learn something.  Read non-fiction, take a course,  go to a seminar. Alternatively,  communicate: write letters,  stories, or start a dream journal.  Cancer - Bake bread or build  something for your home to  nurture those thai live in it (and  ease up on your kids, it may be  ;a lousy time for them too).  Leo - Stop growling and start  communicating. Tell the people  around you that you need to be  appreciated, and find a way to  get some ego strokes: host a  party, dazzle a loved one with  your repartee, play a game with  someone you know you can  beat.  Virgo - Make a list of all the  things you SHOULD be doing.  Each time you do one of them,  force yourself to do something  special for yourself. Don't let  yourself do one more SHOULD  until you feel cared for.  Libra - Entertain. Il doesn't  need to be a big parly. Have  friends over for dinner. Play a  lot of music, strings and flutes;  classical, folk, definitely  nothing raucous.  Scorpio - Spend lime meditating (or praying) or alternatively, if you have a permanent partner, you might feel a  lot better if you plan lo spend  extra time in the bedroom.  Sagilarrius - If you can't, for  practical reasons, take a trip,  watch some travel programs,  plan a trip, read about foreign  places. Alternatively, leach a  course, show slides of past trips  to friends, or just daydream.  Capricorn - Choose one goal  for this year and start work on  it. Make it something concrete  and specific so thai you can see  that you're accomplishing  something.  Aquarius - Make sure you  alternate mental endeavours  with physical activity. You'll  find getting outside for a while-  clears your mind.  Pisces - Don't drink,  DANCE. Alcohol and the like  can add to depression, try herb  lea instead and get your feet  moving, even if it's by yourself  at home.  Everyone - Be gentle with  yourselves. If everyone else is  gelling mad at you, you need lo  be sympathetic to yourself. Spring will come, I promise.  Stock Market got  you down? Forget about it.

The next general meeting is  February 8. How about marking that on your calendar and  make a point of coming out to  show some support.  The memberships are due for  renewal now as well.

Alderman Norm Peterson  noted that the closing down of  provincial institutions might require Gibsons address this issue.  m  TmwM  ffteCuttt  He walked off the evening ferry, shoulders hunched  against the wind and rain, looking cold and hungry. I Immediately suggested dinner out, knowing my fridge was  empty. "Let's go lo Promo's," was the enthusiastic reply.  We headed up ihe hill and once inside Promo's charming atmosphere Ihe blustery night was forgotten. Although  it was busy, we were quickly seated and provided with  menus by our cheery waitress.  1 was hungry, having skipped lunch, and ordered a hear-  ly meal of barbeque spareribs which, when it arrived, proved most satisfying. Tender and tangy morsels that melted  in my mouth, and disappeared, even though the portion  had al first seemed too generous.  He chose the sirloin steak which he claimed was done to  perfection. Both meals included a garden fresh salad, baked potato and an array of steamed vegetables.  Relaxing over coffee laced with liqueurs, we debated  whether or not lo try the delicious-sounding carrot cake.  Giving in to temptation and a sweet tooth, it's moist texture and nutty flavour was unarguably the perfect touch to  a very satisfying meal.  Pronto's offers a dining experience not to be missed.

Coast News, February 1,1988  Russians not Afghan's only problem  Editor:  The tlrst of May could be the  beginning of the end of a contentious border war nobody can  will. Thai is the date the Soviet  Union plans to Marl the  withdrawal of troops from  Afghanistan. Not all Afghanis  are happy about it.  Afghanistan, because of its  alpine isolation, was one of the  lew remaining feudal states still  surviving into the 20th century.  William 1. Shirer, the chronicler of the rise and fall of Adolf  Hitler, went lo Kabul in 19.11)10  attend the Installation of a new  king. The former monarch, the  son of a humble water carrier,  had been deposed and he and  seven of his followers were  hanged on an improvised seal-  fold. I hat ceremony was pari of  the barbaric celebrations. Shirer  look a photograph of ii.  In ihe late 19th century, Bn  lain iried lo conquer Afghanistan bul found thai,because of  ihe terrain, Ihe conquesl was  loo difficult and withdrew. The  Russians should have learned  from lhai example. Finally, to  safeguard their border, they invaded Afghanistan.  first hi benefit from ihe new  regime were ihe Afghan  women,   who,   being   Moslem  PROFESSIONAL  [ FINAKCIAT o'ANNINGl  had to wear uncomfortable  clothes. They were influenced  already by the women's liberation movement, But the male  chauvinists would spray acid in  the faces of women who appeared in public without a veil.  When women wore stockings,  these men shut at their legs.  Peter Nciswand, a newspaper  reporter in the early years of the  Soviet occupation, described the  literacy campaign which established schools in farming  areas, staffed hy young Afghan  women teachers. They told the  children their mothers also  should come to school and learn  lo read. Bui the guerrilla  fighters, heating ihis, swooped  down and murdered the young  women teachers.  Now thai the Soviet troops  are deparling, the western world  is anticipating the arrival at lasl  of peace and democracy in Afghanistan. They will be disappointed.  The last issue of the Manchester Guardian devotes a  whole page lo 'ihe heroes with  tarnished halos'. Rival factions  have sprung up and are al one  another's throats. One of the  former guerrillas is making  millions for himself in the  opium trade which supplies  heroin for Ihe London and New  York market.  Bin the largest and oldest and  most ruthless of all, is the fundamentalist organization Hezbe  Islami, whose members are  simply murderous brigands. An  English women, Chris Gregory,  is demanding an inquiry into the  disappearance of her husband,  a journalist who was lasl seen  three months ago struggling  with a group of Hezbe guerrillas  who were trying to lake his  camera from him. His wife  wants to know why the US  Congress allows the CIA to feed  millions of dollars to the Hezbe  Islami guerrillas and why the  British government condones it.  And lhat is not the whole of  the ugly story.

Fishfarm funding  A government press release,  published in ihe Coast News last  week, about a government aid  to fish farms only tells part of  the story, David Grindley of  Troll Marine Farms told the  Coast News  The money, which is being  invested under the Aquaculture  Incentive Program, is not a  grant, he explained, but a five  year, interest free loan.  Grindley is part owner of  Troll Marine, in partnership  with Odd Grydeland of Norway. He said that the government loans were necessary to  help the aquaculture industry  get off its feet in Canada, where  banks are not willing to invest.  Much of the money for  developing the industry has  come from outside Canada,  especially Norway, he said.  "In Norway, you are only  allowed lo have so many tonnes  of fish per farm," he said.

Davis Bay pub - for and against  Approximately 60 people  turned out at the Wilson Creek  Community Hall on Saturday  for a public hearing on rezoning  the Casa Martinez property to  PA2. The Martinez family want  the rezoning in order to change  their establishment from a  restaurant to a neighbourhood  pub. After an inital presentation  by Jose Martinez, two hours of  individual opinions were heard  by Sechelt Municipal Council  on whether or not a neighbourhood pub was wanted in  the area.  "We will be offering a  panoramic view," said Martinez. "We will have an extensive food menu." He described  how his establishment would be  a meeting place for friends in an  atmosphere of natural wood  with a cozy fireplace looking  out over the ocean toward  Parksville.  Martinez said he would be  supplying from 10 to 12 jobs  and it would not be a rowdy  place. "We have a family and  live on the premises," he said.  "Our family has been serving  the community for 25 years and  the second generation hopes to  serve it for another 25 years."  The support for Martinez was  strong. Retired Sechelt Alderman Ken Short advocated an  optimistic viewpoint. Speaking  in favour of the rezoning he  stated, "It seems the fears are  from the people who think a  neighbourhood pub implies  nothing but vice and crime.  They (the Martinez family) see a  vision in Davis Bay that perhaps  we have forgotten."  Another individual pointed  out that under the present zoning a hotel could be established  which would automatically  qualify for a pub license.  Gerhard Felgenhauser,  manager of the Wharf  Restaurant and Bella Beach  Motel, spoke in favour of Martinez. "I am a direct competitor  and I am looking forward lo the  application being granted."  But if the support was strong  so was the opposition. Bill  LeNeve submitted a petition  signed by 109 individuals and  five couples. "They are all  within walking distance of the  Martinez property," he said.  He suggested council consider  how they would react if it was  occurring next door to their  own property.  Many concerns were voiced  over the effects of a pub on safe  driving and noise.  Lygie Lundman, sister of  Jose Martinez, spoke, "We did  have a cabaret when we started.  We did have live entertainment.  There never was a problem in  the past."  "Not   so,"   claimed   one  woman who stated she had lived  there for some 20 years and  remembered the police being  called many times. "There was  even a shooting there," she  stated.  Lundman was quick to rise to  the defense. "The only time  anyone might have been carrying firearms," she said, "was  when some punks from Vancouver came over and beat my  father up because he was trying  to stop them from breaking  in!"  She went on to state that the  police were only called when  people thai were denied access  became troublesome. The family decided lo relinquish the  cabaret license only to establish  a restaurant but had they not  done so it would still be a  cabaret today.  "But limes are changing,"  said Martinez after the hearing,  "People want different things  now."  Public Hearing Chairman  Joyce Kolibas said the Sechelt  Municipal Council will deliberate on the hearing when all  council members can be present.

One of the first  pieces of business on the agenda  was the allocation of responsibilities to our directors, to  oversee the various committees  of our organization.  Should committee chairmen  need help, they should consult  their respective overseeing directors. Duties were alloted as  follows:  Tillie White, Arts and Crafts;  Rita Stansfield, Aggravation,  Bridge, Bingo; Mickey Corn-  well, Rentalsman, Building  Maintenance; Betty Calli,  Publicity, Travel and Entertainment, Shop Easy Draw,  Speakers; Beth Niddery,  Membership, Sick Visiting, Kitchen, Ways and Means; Ted  Farewell, Carpet Bowling,  5-Pin Bowling, Exercises, Painting; John Miller, Celebration  Days.  With regard to our volunteer  committee chairmen for 1988,  space here does not allow the  extended list. Should you wish  to consult, at any time, with  these volunteers, please consult  the  Activity  Sheet  that  was  Peace Video  On Monday, February 8 at 7:30 in the Roberts Creek  school library, the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee and  Continuing Education will co-sponsor the first in a series of  videos produced by Project Ploughshares entitled 'Seeking  Alternatives'.  The first video features Stephen Lewis, Canadian Ambassador to the United Nations. Lewis discusses the role of  the United Nations in the process of disarmament and the  need for a comprehensive test ban on nuclear weapons.  A short discussion will follow the video with refreshments  served.  Correction  The Coast News inadvertently jumped the gun last week  when it reported that Gibsons as well as Sechelt voted to support the UFAWU fight against recent GATT recommendations.
