Jan de Reus, referee and coach, keeps  investigation continues  an eye on things as Katrine Magnusson makes a run downfleld and John Snazell  moves in for the tackle.  Concerning the investigation into irregularities  eged to be existing in the Sunshine Coast Regional  strict, Chairman Brian Stelck made the following  mments for publication at the March 11th board  ieting.  "As of this morning, we have placed one staff  imber tinder suspension without pay for disposing  SCRD property, effective immediately pending  "MP investigation. A number of other concerns  : being dealt with on an on-going basis. A couple  other allegations yet to be completely investigated  : in the hands of the RCMP and I will withhold  mment on these until the results of these investiga-  ms are available."  Stelck confirmed that the investigation by the In-  ector of Municipal Affairs has concluded and  iults will be forwarded. The RCMP have not as yet  ncluded their investigation.  n education budget  Regarding comments appearing in The Press made  by Area F Director, Jim Gurney, that scrap material  had been sold and the funds received from it had  been used for staff parties, Stelck said, "It has been  determined that this incident probably occurred, but  did not occur within the past ten years."        j  Stelck also clarified that when he ascertained there  was material on an employee's property, he ordered  it back to the SCRD storage yard and this move was  made with the full knowledge of the RCMP and the  Inspector of Municipalities. He confirmed that a  substantial amount had been returned, but any decision regarding the disposal of the material would be  made after the investigation is over.  Following the Thursday meeting, Stelck told the  Coast News that the board auditors thought the  board's accounting system was excellent, but had  serious questions concerning inventory control, particularly public utilities department inventory.  Last year the board moved to tighten controls on  incoming materials and this system seems to be working, but logging of outgoing materials has been lax or  non existent. There is no record, for example, of  where and how much pipe or connections have been  laid in the ground.  Also, no log exists which keeps track of the miles  driven by vehicles used by the public works drivers.  As a result, it is not known whether or not employees  use regional district vehicles for their own private  purposed.  Chairman Stelck is satisfied that the report on irregularities will show that the board and senior staff  members acted Correctly and co-operatively with all  diligence and haste.  School Board opposed to change  by Maryanne West  The Board of School Trustees voted unanimously  it week in agreement with the motion proposed by  ustee Hodgins "that District 46 not submit an  nended budget by March 31st", as required by  ���emier Bennelt.  in speaking of ihe motion, Trustee Hodgins  linted oul lhat the board has already spent a great  al of time and energy preparing a budget which has  en submitted in good faith according to the School  :l.  Child hurt  On Thursday, March 11th, at 6:00 p.m.,  seven-year-old Shamus Hennessey was seriously injured while riding his bicycle in the Beach  Avenue-Cedar Grove area. Shamus was hit by a  car and was taken to Vancouver General  Hospital with head injuries, where he is listed in  poor condition. The accident is still under investigation.  Loggers going hack  Loggers employed by Weldwood Company  al Clowholm Falls have been recalled to work  Ihis week, after an eight-month lay-off period.  It was learned that all crews were asked to  report to work, March 14.  Lines on Teredo  Line painters are due to begin work on  Teredo Street in Sechelt as the next phase of the  Teredo project. Completion of line painting  and installation of reflectors depends on two  consecutive days of dry weather.  "The Premier doesn't have the authority to tell us  to disregard the Act, and, now we've got a whole new  funding system, the safest thing is to follow the law,"  said Hodgins.  Trustee Stephen, while supporting the motion,  suggested it might be wise to work on a contingency  plan. Trustee Douglas reminded the board that it  would be on its own if it embarked on a contingency  plan, because the staff couldn't help and Trustee  Lloyd felt it better to wait until the Department of  Education had decided where it was going.  "By the time they've passed the legislation,  everything may be different," he said, The contingency plan idea was dropped.  Many teachers were present to support the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association President, Roger  Douglas, with a message to the trustees to maintain  their "high standard of educational  decision-making" and to express the hope that the  On staff salaries  Lee's comments  said improper  Sunshine Coast Regional Board chairman, Brian  Stelck announced at the meeting of the board on  Thursday, March 11 that the Board wishes to go on  record as not agreeing with statements Charles Lee  has made in the media regarding regional board staff  and staff salaries.  Commenting on the subject, Area D director  Harry Almond added, "Lee's statements infer that  the staff is taking this board for a ride and it is not  right. All staff salaries are negotiated properly, and  the inference just isn't right".  This disclaimer is in direct reference to statements  made by Lee which were printed in The Press only.  board would refuse to submit a revised budget by the  end of the month. The teachers thought Premier Bennett's budget restrictions were "poorly organized,  poorly thought out, inequitable and harmful to the  basic educational programme offered in the  classrooms of the District".  In Pender Harbour  Foreshore plan  seen beneficial  Area A director, Ian Vaughan, the Arc* A advisory planning committee and the regional planner,  Jim Johnstone recently met with representative! of  Lands, Parks and Housing to discuss the Pender  Harbour Crown Foreshore Plan and according to  Vaughan, agreement in principle was reached to implement the plan to the benefit Of both waterfront  and upland property owners. Specifically, areas  where it was felt there were inaccuracies and  guidelines were discussed.  "We feel the plan must be administered by the  regional district as part of the community zoning so  that property owners, both waterfront and upland,  will be able to follow normal channels if changes are  desired," said Vaughan. "A possible means to administer the plan would be an elected commission as  suggested by the Minister of Municipal Affairs in recent restructuring discussions."  One of the many problems in administering the  plan is the enforcement aspect. Director Vaughan  feels that this must be solved before the plan can'be  implemented.  SCRD says  rent excessive  Compensation to the Village of Sechelt in exchange for use of boardroom facilities by the Sunshine Coast Regional District was subject to discussion at the regional board meeting on March 11th:  The village has set the rent at $200.00 per month,  commencing February 1st, 1982.  Objecting to the figure as being excessive was Gibsons Mayor, Lorraine Goddard, who felt that it was  high for the amount of time the facilities were used.  She did agree that some compensation should be  paid, since the board is utilizing electricity.  Directors Jim Gurney and David Hunter were both  of the opinion that the board had already agreed to a  figure of $50.00 per month.  Chairman Brian Stelck noted that there have been  times when the regional district has not had access to  the boardroom when they needed it. Backing his  comment, director Peggy Connor recounted a recent  committee meeting rhal she attended where the  . facilities wete-not available and it necessitated 12  .people Squeezing around a small table in a room  "upstairs.  The only director to speak in favour of the expenditure of $200.00 per month was Charles Lee.  Staff was directed to send a letter to the Village of  Sechelt, asking if the figure of $200.00 could be  negotiated.  Stormy meeting  with builder  PUC Chairman, Jim Gurney has concluded an investigation into the dispute between contractor  George Skea and chief building inspector Harry  Morris-Reade, and in his report to the Regional  Board on March 11 noted, "It was a stormy  meeting."  Gurney attempted to go through the list of com-i  plaints and get a full exchange going. "I observed a  personality conflict between Skea and Morris-Reade  resulting in a lack of communication."  As a result of his investigation, Gurney recommended to the board that they make it a policy to advise that a stop work order has been lifted by means  of a double registered letter. This would leave no  doubt that the order has been lifted and would form  a permanent part of the record. Currently a stop  work order is lifted by removal of a red tag. The  board concurred.  Gurney also suggested that building inspectors  should be respectful in the way they conduct  themselves in front of clients. The board agreed that  this is a good standard of conduct for all staff.

U. S. $32.00 per year, Overseas 132.00 per year  Distributed tree to all addreeiet on the Sunehlne Coast  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  SeSsf  Restraint program a sham  It must be surely evident to all except those blinded by party loyalty  that the program of restraint in the  public sector announced by Premier  Bennett a couple of weeks ago is an  ill-advised and hollow sham. If ever  there was a classic example of the inadequacy of government by public  relations it has been presented by  Premier Bennett.  Last Monday's Vancouver Sun  carried an article quoting a leading  U.S. economist, Robert Russell,  who made the point that it was futile  for one province to attempt to battle  inflation on its own when the entire  . country couldn't do it because of  the overwhelming effect on Canada  of the economic policies of the  United States.  Further., this adventure in legislation by televised announcement is  making the Socred government look  very foolish in the eyes of the rest of  the country. The Coast News has  learned that Tom Shoyama, now  teaching at the University of Victoria and who was the civil servant  largely responsible for the wage and  price  controls  instituted  by  the  Liberals in the middle of the 1970's,  was approached by the provincial  government to aid them with the  program of restraint. Shoyama  refused, pointing out that two years  of work went into the federal program. The Socreds wanted him to  get them organized in about three  weeks.  So we have the ludicrous situation  wherein Premier Bennett has gone  on television to announce a program  that no one in Victoria has any idea  how to implement.  It must be apparent that Bennett's  program was the red rag which was  supposed to bring the socialist bull  charging to the attack thereby setting the stage for an expedient election call by the embattled Socreds.  If this is the best advice that Bennett's slick and expensive new advisers from Ontario can come up  with he would be well advised to  send them back where they came  from. The Province of British Columbia deserves better government  than such slick and shallow exercises  such as Bennett's ballyhooed program of restraint.  A welcome determination  Mayor Bud Koch deserves commendation for his decision to ensure  that his council meetings will not be  used as launching pads for the  stream of ill-natured and unjustified  attacks on the Regional Board that  has been the pattern in the recent  past.  The   irritants   of  conflicting  jurisdictional claims are real enough  without the situation being inflamed  by the constant stream of mud-  slinging and vile innuendo authored  by Alderman Lee.  Mayor Koch's' obvious determination to get control of his council must be welcomed by all, with  perhaps one obvious'exception.  ...from the flits of tht COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Local salmon trailers had  their hopes for a reversal of the  two-licence trolling regulations  for the Gulf of Georgia for this  season raised, then abruptly  dampened again last week. At  first the fishermen thought they  had won their dispute with the  Department of Fisheries when  Federal Member of Parliament  Jack Peasall said that the implementation of the two-licence  for the Gulf fisherman had been  "postponed indefinitely".  Subsequently it transpired that  this meant that the decision had  been postponed until the  minister returned from vacation.  10 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt-Gibsons Airport  Committee may undergo  another effort to have the airport  transferred to Regional District  board control. It is now under  the control of Sechelt and Gibsons municipal councils which  were the only elected municipal  authorities available some 15  years ago when the airport came  into being.  15 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's boat harbour to cost  $220,000 is included in this  year's estimates presented to  the federal parliament on Monday.  Thus another step has been  taken for the construction of a  boat shelter. It will actually be  constructed in the Selma Park  area of the shoreline but Its  closeness to Sechelt and the  fact Sechelt has pressed for it  for a good many years has  resulted in It being called the  Sechelt boat harbour.  20 YEARS AGO  Conforming with the Chant  Commission findings on school  matters, Sechelt District 46  School Board at its meeting  Monday in Gibsons agreed to  move all grade seven pupils out  of the secondary schools.  25 YEARS AGO  Pender  Harbour Centennial  Committee at its monthly  meeting voted unanimously for  the location adjoining the Community Club's playground property for its Centennial Park and  Pool project, provided the Community Club approves the leasing of the site for the purpose.  30 YEARS AGO  Halfmoon Bay - The long  awaited power from Clowholm  Falls may arrive early next year.  The green light to such a  move was contained In a release  from Captain Andrew Johnston,  head of the Mackenzie Riding  Liberals.  * . *  Again in the life of the Coast  News comes a parting of the  ways. New owners will take  over, effective next issue.  W.A. "Bill" Sutherland will no  longer be associated with the  paper he has edited for nearly  three years following purchase  of the Coast News from its  original owners, E. Parr Pearson  and A. Alsgaed.  Samuel Nutter, the man who  helped Install the first  newspaper plant on the Sechelt  Peninsula and who has been  owner of fifty per cent of your  favourite weekly will take over  full control effective as of this,  date.  35 YEARS AGO  Buying for cash usually offers  substantial savings. Many  housewives are now consulting  with their husbands and buying  long-awaited and much-needed  furniture, slip covers, curtains,  drapes and labour-saving  household appliances.  The Bank of Montreal's Personal Loan financing plan  makes buying for cash quite  simple. If you can provide  security, the rate of interest Is  less, e.g. If you have Dominion  of Canada Bonds, the rate on.  the loan is 3Vi % or If you have  life Insurance you pay 4Vi%.  You can borrow $100 for as little  as 17 cents a month.

The broad ditch on the east side  of what was then called Porpoise Bay Road was made to drain the  bog; it was not part of the mythic "canal" between Trail Bay and  Porpoise Bay. Buildings left to right arc: (1) third More and post  office, erected 1906 and destroyed by fire July, 1936, (2) wharf shed, (3) first Sechell store and post office, (4) second store and post  office; became the first Sechelt school in 1912, (5) first Sechelt  hotel, opened July 1,1199; destroyed by fire, 1914.  *  .1  For fifty years the  theories of economist J.  Maynard Keynes kept  the economies of the  western world on relatively even keel. In the  last half dozen years  Keynes' economic theories have been discarded  by the governments of  almost all the western  countries in favour of  the monetarist theories  of Milton Friedman.  What caused the  change and what effects  can. we expect from it?  Roughly speaking,  Keynes theory was a  balancing theory. When ,.  business was booming,;  governments shquld cut.  back pn their spending"  In periods of recession,  governments would act  to lessen the impact of  the down turn by spending relatively lavishly.  It seemed sound in  theory and for fifty years  seemed sound in practice.  The architects of the  collapse of Keynesian  economics were the very  governments that Keynes' theories served so  well.  For the theory to  work, both halfs of it  had to be put into practice. Governments did  indeed spend lavishly in  times of economic recession, but unfortunately  continued to do so in  times of economic  boom. This free-spending approach was very  effective in buying the  votes that governments  needed to win re-election  and with virtually no exceptions the governments of the western  world were unable to resist  the  temptation  to  pursue power in the  short term, rather than  concern themselves with  the long term need for  fiscal responsibility.  Who do we blame? It  is easy, of course, with  the wisdom of hindsight  to decry the irresponsibility of our leaders. It is  also true that the Achilles heel of democracy  may be that we as voters  have allowed ourselves  to be persuaded to vote  for whichever party promised us the most goodies in the here and now.  The truly abysmal  level. of ���poliUcal| and,  philosophic awarene's'i in'  societies whose very $:  istence depends on political choices being made  by the people has encouraged political leaders  whose object is power to  appeal to the crassest of  human instincts.  The free-spending of  governments in pursuit  of popularity and power  fed the fires of inflation.  After years of deficit financing, even in times of  economic prosperity, our  governments found  themselves with gigantic  debt loads ahd thus, at a  crucial time when tough  and unpopular decisions  might have been effective, the governments dithered because they now  had a vested interest in  inflation. Getting into  debt in 1960's dollars  and paying them back in  l?80's dollars had a fatal  attraction for a crucial  period of years.  Now led by the Conservatives in Greal Britain and the Republicans  in the United Stales, we  find the monetarist  theories  of   Milton   J.  Friedman esconced as  economic wisdom.  Friedman has a Nobel  Prize for economics but  it is difficult to understand why. There is  nowhere in the world,  evidence that his theories  have led to economic  prosperity. Nonetheless,  they are unchallenged as  the conventional wisdom  of the moment.  Thus we have governments taking more and  more money- out of the  market place in a time of  deepening economic  gloom, much of it going  to pay off debt charges  whjcK they ate belatedly  trying to 'get under' control.     '  The fact of the matter  is that our leaders are  beginning, to realize how  close the economic world  is to being totally out of  control. They are clutching the hard-line  theories of Friedman to  their bosoms because  they betrayed the  moderating influence of  Keynesian economics in  times of prosperity by  purchasing votes.  So here we are with inflation still rampant, interest rates at a punitive  level that used to be called loan-sharking, unemployment steadily rising  and no relief or solution  in sight. It is.a prospect  of grimness brought on  by the failure of elected  governments to look further down the road than  the next election.  Somewhere, somehow  soon, political maturity  must re-appear in the  governments of the west  and in l lie vmcrs who  will elect those governments.  Towards a wider perspective  OPEC over a barrel  by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones  On March 19th in  Vienna the Organization  of Petroleum Exporting  Countries will begin a  special meeting. It has  been called to deal with  an unprecedented situation for the cartel - a  world glut in oil and falling oil prices. The Arab  oil ministers have  already met in Qatar in  an attempt to present a  common course of action. However, the battle  between the hawkish Libyans and the dovish  Saudis does not seem to  have been resolved. In  fact, last week Colonel  Qaddafi accused the  Saudis and the  Americans of being in  open alliance with Israel  and America against  Libya and other nations  who depend on oil for  their livelihood. He went  so far as to stale thai  "Saudi Arabia is enemy  no. 1". What Qaddafi  wants is for Saudi  Arabia to reduce its present production, officially 8.5 million barrels per  day (bpd), and to hold  the price at $34 a barrel  for light crude.  The Libyans wish to  restrict production in  order to keep the price  up. They are, of course,  acting as good cartel  members; after all the  raison d'etre for a cartel  is to control supply and  strong arm buyers into  paying its price.  The Saudi policy, even  during the heady days of  the massive price leaps of  the 70's, was to attempt  to moderate the hikes.  Sheik Yamani, the Saudi  oil minister, pointed out  that if the American  economy goes bust, then  OPEC would lose in the  long run.  According lo Yamani,  Saudi Arabia could turn  back ihe taps io 6.2  million bpd and still  meel ils financial commitments. The Libyans,  on the other hand, need  to produce 1.3 million  bpd at present prices to  make ends meet. They  are, according to all industry sources, pumping  only 600,000 barrels dai-  'ly. Their oil revenues  have fallen drastically  and they are having to  borrow money on the international market to  cover budget deficits.  How has this come  about? The memory of  the line-ups at the pumps  in 1973-1974 is still vivid.  OPEC seemed to have  the Western industrialized nations by the jugular  and could demand any  price for its scarce black  gold.  To be continued  ���Photo cotjrtev of HHtrn Iftawr  [Slings  & Arrows]  [George  Matthews]  MEDIA SURVEY  PART VI  In this, the last of the  six-part series on the  results of the media-  attitude survey conducted by Admer Services of North Vancouver, we will present a  brief summary of the information we gathered  concerning the state of  our own newspaper, and  offer some indication of  how we hope to use this  information to serve the  Sunshine Coast better.  The survey, which was  conducted during the  month of January, 1982,'  polled a random sampl-  JMnHiig i,09 pet l  ifc^#��ir - feCVfisi.  .households. Tbe isium.  asked to rate the quality  of two daily newspapers  and the two weeklies. In  rating the dailies, it was  found that only 42 per  cent of Coast residents  receive a daily paper on a  regular basis.  In rating the weeklies,  69.8 per cent of  respondents rated the  Coast News as a good to  very good newspaper, as  opposed to 47.7 per cent  for the other weekly. In  rating local news  coverage, the Coast  News again proved  superior: 68.6 per cent to  55.8 per cent.  Sports coverage was  generally a weak area in  both papers; our  coverage was rated good  to very good by only 49  per cent of respondents,  while the other weekly's  sports coverage was  rated good to very good  by only 43 per cent.  Our editorial page was  more widely read as well,  being read regularly by  80.2 per cent of  respondents, as opposed  to 62.8 per cent for the  other weekly.  Finally, when asked  ihe question: "If only  one weekly newspaper  could be delivered in  your area, which weekly  newspaper would you  prefer?" the overwhelming response was the  Coast News by 53.5 per  cent to 26.7 per cent; on-  n      me  ly 19.9 per cent showed  no preference.  These results came as  no great surprise to us;  we have, after all, been  the preferred newspaper  on this Coast for almost  40 years, going back lo  the time when "Bill"  Sutherland started the  Coast News in 1945 in  Halfmoon Bay. While  the results of the survey  were gratifying, we  learned however some  things we could be doing  better. We should, for  example, be more careful  with proof reading our  stories and news items;  we should be seeking a  columns; we sltolitd as  .wel{ be striving for more  consistency in' the placement of specific items.  We do a very good jotif  with our advertising. It is  generally accepted that  our back-shop people do  superior work and we  take great pride in that  fact. What we have to do  is translate our better  work into more advertising so we can run more  of the stories that we  have.  Not only is the Coasl  News the Coast's first  newspaper, we are thei  weekly of first choice by  the majority of residents;  and to add to these firsts,  it has been noticed and!  appreciated that the'  Coast News is the first to  arrive in the community  on a Monday, as opposed to the Tuesday,  publication time for our';  competitor. This means  the reader not only finds  out the news first, but  our advertisers, those  people we depend upon  so much, have their  messages in front of the  public 14 per cent longer.  The Coast News  would like to express its  appreciation to all the  Coast residents who  responded to the Admer  survey. The few minutes  you took in January to  answer those questions  will benefit our paper:  and, hopefully, you, in  the years to come.        |  am MM        3M>_���HIC=  Pity Mc Not  Pity me not because the light of day  At close of day no longer walks the sky;  Pity me not for beauties passed away  from field and thicket as the year goes by;  Pity me not the waning of the moon,  Nor that the ebbing tide goes out to sea,  Nor that a man's desire Is hushed so soon,  Ahd you no longer look with love on me.  This have I known always: love Is no more  Than the wide blossom I  which the wind assails;  Than the great tide that treads  the shifting shore,  Strewing fresh wreckage gathered  In the gales.  Pity me that the heart Is slow to learn  What the swift mind beholds at every turn.  ���Edna St. Vincent Mlllay Letters to the Editor  Koch slam* Coast News  : In your effort to  discredit someone, you  have earned the disdain  and disgust of the people  involved in the Airport  Commission.  These people are very  capable, astute, community minded businessmen, who gave of their  time for public good. Is  it any wonder when people arc iked to stand for  public office they decline?  Your paper calls it  apathy, I call it a  pathetic paper that has  to resort to this type of  reporting that can see no  good in anything and  bad in everything and  causes grievous harm to  a community trying to  work together.  I hope you have the  decency to apologize to  the Commission  members for your scurrilous attack when no  one was sacked, fired or  anything else along those  lines and this decision  had nothing, to do with  Alderman Lee.  Mayor Bud Koch  Editor'! Note: Harsh  words, Mr. Mayor. The  letters below, however,  from members of the  now-defunct Airport  Commission make plain  where they feel this problem lies, and it Is not  with the Coast News.  Airport commissioners' view  Editor:  Look out Bruno! You  and your fellow  Beachcombers are in  jeopardy of losing your  star billing to a new comedy. It is known as  "Flights of Fantasy on  the Sunshine Coast",  starring thai two-fisted  mudslinger Charles Lee,  the fastest lip-shooter in  the West, supported by a  cast of one. Special effects by SCRD. Who  needs to stay home watching TV with the kids  with entertainment like  thai available ai any  local forum!  We withdrew from the  Airporl Advisory Commission without public  pronouncement or  publicity but, as usual,  Mr. Lee had lo feed his  ego wilh another dose of  grandstanding. Since he  has chosen to make  serious and erroneous  allegations about us in  public then he leaves us  no option but to publicly  refute those allegations.  In the first place, the  individual who was suggested (not nominated or  endorsed in any way) as  a prospective airport  project manager Is not  an ex-military friend of  Doug Dickson. Indeed  he had never met the  man in his life until last  November. Being aware  that the individual is a  highly experienced pilot  and engineer, not currently employed, but a  resident of the Sunshine  Coast, he appeared to be  an ideal candidate. The  extent of our involvement was providing the  individual's name and  telephone number to the  Sechelt Village Clerk for  his consideration if the  Village Councils decided  to hire a project  manager. Mr. Lee's  claim that Doug Dickson  just wanted to help out  one of the "old boys" is  downright fabrication  without any foundation.

The Airport Advisory  Commission has functioned very successfully  for a number of years  and was comprised of  public-spirited individuals, some with a  lifetime of experience in  aviation, who willingly  donated their lime,  energy and experience  for the good of the community as a whole.  Without fanfare, publicity or remuneration, we  have donated many  hours and considerable  personal expense to a  project we all believe in  and which has tremendous potential for the  community.  Mr. Lee is not, and  never was, Chairman of  Ihe Airport Advisory  Commission, or it would  have been disbanded  long ago. He has no  mandate from anyone to  "sack" us since we are  private citizens, donating  our services and experience to the Sunshine  Coasl, not publicity-  seeking politicians. Indeed, long before Mr.  Lee came on the scene we  had a most successful  and compatible team  who met regularly to formulate plans for the airport and made substa'tiye  recommendations to the.  Village Councils for airporl development.  However, the moment  Mr. Lee joined the group'  in an ex-offlcio role, the  entire tone changed and  Ihe grandstanding, arrogance and publicity-  seeking destroyed a  previously highly-effective group. That is why  we resigned, Mr. Lee,  because we have better  things to do than listen  to your pompous carping  about a subject you  know little about. You  claim to be a pioneer  aviator, but we can only  assume it was in hot air  balloons.  We   have   always  believed in the axiom  that serving one's community on a volunteer  basis is part of the rent  we pay for the space we  occupy on this earth. But  serving on a committee  with Mr. Lee is just too  high a rent to pay, even  in this inflated economy.

Hughes  responds  to Lee  Editor:  As a recently "sacked" member of the  Gibsons-Sechelt Airport  Advisory Committee, 1  should like to respond to  Mr. Lee's reported comments.  I did not personally  hear one of our members  say: "We'd rather be at  home with the kids watching T.V.", but I can  well understand the  frustration behind it.  The airport committee  was to be an advisory  committee which would  recommend action for  approval by the Gibsons  and Sechelt councils.  Unfortunately, Mr. Lee  totally dominated our  meetings and it appeared  that we met only to approve and applaud the  ideas and actions proposed by Mr. Lee.       *  Mr. Lee has many  community accomplishments to his credit. But  accomplishments are a  matter of form as Well as  substance and people  who attempt to ac-  complsh objectives in a  whirlwind of personal  activity lend to leave a  vacuum when they pass  on. It would be far better  to work with an advisory  committee, to draw on  the considerable technical knowledge which the  members possess and to  lead them to a consensus. In this way embarrassing mistakes are  more likely to be avoided  and there will remain a  lasting residual of competent people who are  accustomed to accomplishing objectives together. ...  1 have a further objection to Mr. Lee's leadership in that his sole interest was to obtain  money from senior  governments and spend  it in this area. Although  studies exist which  describe present and  future traffic patterns  and the potential of the  present airport site, there  was never a clear decision on the level of airport service we should  attempt to provide. It  would be far more rational to agree on the  level of service and then  determine how it might  be financed, by government, by industry or user  fees.  As a final response to  Mr. Lee's comments in  council, I must point out  lhat he has been unfair  to Col. Dickson. The  man proposed by Col.  Dickson was neither an  old friend nor an "old  boy", but an aeronautical engineer resident on  the Coast who was well  qualified to supervise the  projeci.  Mr. Lee also failed to  disclose lhat he (Mr.  Lee) also proposed a  construction supervisor,  a man to be employed by  Sechelt council, and thai  it was his intention to  charge a portion of this  man's salary against the  authorized capital for  airport improvements.  Not only does this verge  on a conflict of interest,  but it forms the nub of  the dispute which finally  broke the committee.  W.I. Hughes,  P.Eng.

They seem rather  trivial and foolish in  retrospect bul they landed me in Oakalla, nonetheless.  Somehow Zan comes  into my mind. He.is one  of the earliest San Francisco draft-dodgers with  a Borneo wild-man hairdo and a billowing black  beard to match. Zan is  only a harbinger of  things to come. There  are already thousands  like him on Ihe streets of  Vancouver and other  large cities. They are  symbols of change. But  change comes hard to  such conservative out-  ports as Sully's Cove.  Zan's hirsute appearance  is the subject of much  tongue-clucking and  general disapproval by  the older locals. "Hippies in our town! What  can the world be coming  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  to?" they mutter worriedly.  Although flamboyant  Zan is the first glaring  evidence of it, there has  been counter-cultural activity in the town for  several years. I am  drawn into it, soon after  my arrival there. We  meet primarily on  weekends at an isolated  estate known only as The  Farm, to discuss writing  and the arts in general.  Several of our group  play instruments and  there is generally live  music. There is also,  along with copious consumption of beer and  wine, a certain amount  of experimentation with  soft drugs and other  mind-altering substances  such as ether and car-  bogen gas. <  The Farm is being  rented by a young couple  THOMAS HEATING  THE HEAT PUMP COMPANY  V  CALL NOW!  886-7111  called Lance and Mindy  Fallon, a young couple I  know from earlier  adventures in Vancouver. They are both  musicians and Mindy'  writes a column for a  jazz magazine. She also  works in a wholesale  drug warehouse which  gives her easy access to  some of the compounds  with which, we intermittently tinker.  The group is cliquey to  a high degree and we are  extremely cautious  when it comes to admitting new members. Keeping a low profile is one of  our cardinal aims. A  crackdown on soft drug  use in underway in Vancouver, spearheaded by a  fanatical RCMP officer  called Abe Snidanko.  (Years later, Snidanko  will achieve dubious immortality as the archetypal nark in Cheech  and Chong comedy skits,  but at this point in lime,  he is in full cry and no  laughing matter.) We  have no desire to experience the unwelcome  attention of him or any  of his cronies.  We manage to main-,  tain this covert existence  for some time, limiting  our circle to cool,  trustworthy people. We  are particularly wary of  underage kids and any  who attempt to infiltrate  our circle are summarily  rebuffed. One  precocious   girl   called  lola    Ferguson,    is  unusually persistent but  we refuse to relax the  rules. We have made no  waves in the community  through our activities,  up to this point and we  hope to keep it that way.  The arrival of  outrageous and ultra-  visible Zan is only a  minor portent but a  significant one. He is a  friend of the Fallons and  a superlative saxophone  players, but his outlandish appearance and the  fact that he stays at The  Farm, draws an unwanted focus on our  secretive cadre.  He is soon joined by  his partner, another expatriate jazz musician by  the name of Steve. Steve,  .lank-haired and cadaverous looks like a  caricature of Gerry  Mulligan, kicking a six-  month habit. He is noi  on heroin but he looks  like he is. the fact lhat he  plays even better saxophone than Zan does  not ameliorate his  suspicious facade. The  more-paranoid  townsfolk are starting to  stare like basilisks, each  time these characters appear in public. Our  carefully-kept cover is  starting to split at the  seams.  We continue to hold  our weekend sessions,  albeit with a bit more  caution. Then Daryl  Vontoe hits town with a  whole new entourage of  off beat characters. They  set up shop at the other  end of the village and  begin to instigate  everybody's downfall.  to be continued  Jamie Stephen, Conservation Officer with the Fish  and Wildlife Branch, gave the Roberts Creek school  children some dose-up information about local  wildlife Wednesday. -vm. rwi non  At the Twilight  Still showing until Tuesday, March 16 is the  Robert Duvall, Robert De Niro drama True Confessions.

MMaMMfaaaeiaea  IMMM  aaaai  MaMMMtAMl Knights? No thanks  by Bob Hunter  Like everybody else, I  grew up with the idea  that knights were heroes  and that knighthood was  an exalted state.  1 have probably been  affected at a subconscious level by the  mythology of knighthood much more than 1  realize.  After all, I make my  living as a freelancer,  and Ihe original 'free  lances' were knights  whose sword arm was  for hire.  "Have lance, will  kill," was their motto. It  has been diluted in  modern times, obviously. "Have typewriter,  will compose," hardly  compares.  Yet the principle isthe  same. The irresistible  urge that comes over me  every once in a while to  tilt at a windmill is simply part of the tradition.  It was therefore saddening to read Barbara  W. Tuchman's history of  the 14th Century, titled  'A Distant Mirror'. She  makes it quite clear that  knights were complete  nerds.  Politically, they were  an elite police force serving the interests of their  own members. They  savagely crushed bourgeois and peasant uprisings. They got into  the habit of raping,  pillaging and torturing.  Whenever they  fought, their obsession  was with personal glory.  The higher their rank,  the more mischief they  made. Even their  chivalry was shot  through with hypocrisy.  Those damsels they  were trying to be so  chivalrous to were invariably some other  knight's wife.  Near the beginning of  the 14th Century, there  was a terrific battle between the English and  French at Poiters, in  which King Jean of  France became so crazed  on adrenalin and blood  and honour that he made  the incredibly dumb  move of getting himself  captured.  The English, under the  Prince of Wales, took  him home and held him  for ransom, forcing  France to send hundreds  of her own nobility over  the channel as hostages  so that the King might be  Sponsored as a Public Service  by the Coast News  886-2622 886-7817  Note: Early announcements wil be run once,  then must be re-submitted to run again, no  more than one month prior to the event.

It dealt a  savage blow to France's  stature in the world at  that time.  Near the end of the  century, another major  battle was fought - and  lost - at Nicopolis, a  Bulgarian fortress on the  Danube. The Turkish  Sultan Bajazet was able  to exterminate a force of  some 9,000 Christian  crusaders because the  leading knights couldn't  agree on a coherent battle plan. Each wanted the  "flower and honour of  battle" for himself.  In fact, the knights  were living in a completely insane fantasy  world. Their perceptions  were shaped by a set of  imagined truths - about  human nature, the meaning of life, and history  ���that were grotesquely  distorted at every turn.  If you wanted salvation you bought a fixed  amount of it for a fixed  price from the priests. If  you wanted glory, you  slaughtered someone. In  the name of the Prince of  Peace, you made war.  Of course nowadays  we've risen above all that  madness, haven't we?  We do build neutron  bombs in the name of  peaceful coexistence and  we do hear the screaming  of mullahs for more  blood in the name of  Allah. Yet chivalry is  dead and there are no  more crusaders. So we  must have made some  progress.  You know what finished the knights in the  end? Their armour got  too heavy. If they got  knocked down, they  couldn't get up. Some of  them died of heart  failure from the weight.  There has got to be a  message here. We need  knights in shining armour today like we need  a hole in the head.  Coast News, March 15,1982  Susan McLean, C.G.A.

As a boxing  coach, he is more used to  handing it out than  receiving it! Yet Barry  has a penchant for acting, and therein lies his  ruin - the ruin of his  beard at least.  As Dr. Einstein in  "Arsenic & Old Lace" in  January, 1980, Barry  had to submit to the  barber's razor and did so  with such enthusiasm the  event raised $500 for  charity; Now, it is about  to happen again. Barry's  black, bushy beard must  be shorn away to create  the hilarious visage of  Lord Fancourt Babberly  who, inadvertently  costumed as an old  woman, suddenly finds  himself forced to become  ^Book Look'  by Murrie Redman  Superfudge - by Judy Blume,, Dullon 1980,  Judy Blume's books for junior and teenage  readers are by far the favourites. They have  humour, insight and an unsurpassed charisma.  They are also a safe buy, for the simple reason  that kids like to re-read them, a certain sign of  appeal.  Fudge, of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing  and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great, rises  again, this time as an indomitable  kindergartener. Peter, his long-suffering, fifth-  grade brother learns that the family is soon to  have an addition. To add further to his concerns, Peter learns that the family is moving  from the city to the suburbs.  Things turn out well when the new baby,  Tootsie, a girl, proves to be a gurgling delight,  and Peter finds new friends in the  neighbourhood. In the meantime, Fudge conducts his own form of rebellion which keeps the  whole family scrambling to quell. His first day  at kindergarten is one of the highlights of the  book.  A small, but touching, sample of the author's  perceptive rendering of family life is seen as  Peter and Fudge have a boy to boy post-  Christmas chat:  "All that Santa stuff..."  I put down my instruction manual and looked at him. "What do you mean, all that Santa  stuff?"  "I know there's no Santa," he said.  "Since when did you know?"  "Since always."

"Charley's Aunt" - and  the linchpin of Suncoast  Players' upcoming production.  Richard Tomkies of  Middlepoint, who is  directing the play, is confident the show will prove the most successful  yet done by the group.  He states that any performance of this famous  farce depends to a very  large extent on the efforts of the young man  portraying the title  character. In Barry  Krangle, he believes Suncoast Players have an  outstandingly funny  "Charley's Aunt"... one  worthy to follow in the  tradition of such starts as  Jack Benny, Ray Bolger,  Jose Ferrer, Charles  Ruggles, Syd Chaplin  and John Mills, and a  horde of other showbiz  greats who have played  the part over the years.  First performed in  London in 1892,  "Charley's Aunt" by  Brandon Thomas has  since proved the most  successful play ever writ-  by...   anyone,"  anywhere. Not a week  since 1892 has passed  without it being played  somewhere. Whether or  not it is the world's funniest farce is something  we can decide when we  see it over Easter.  Joining Barry Krangle  on the Suncoast Players'  stage will be Patti Allen  of Gibsons, Debbie Mid-  dleton and Donard  MacKenzie, also Gibsons, John Johnston of  Roberts Creek, Rod  Crawford of Sechelt,  Deirdre Murphy of Halfmoon Bay, Els Mercer of  Secret Cove, Gordon  Wilson of Middlepoint  and Al Lloyd of Garden  Bay.

The dictionary  tells us the sentence is a  set of words complete in  itself. A sentence must  be complete in itself, an  expression of thought,  conveying a statement, a  question, exclamation,  or command. The grammar books will tell us a  sentence must have a  subject and a predicate.  In lay terms, a sentence  must say or ask  something about something or somebody, or  tell somebody to do  something.  A sentence may be  very long or very short.  The shortest verse in the  Bible is the sentence:  "Jesus wept". A  "sentence within a  sentence" is a clause.  The sentence, "I came, I  saw, I conquered!" has  three main clauses, three  co-ordinate main clauses  in fact, because they all  bear the same weight.  Written "When I had  come and sized up the  military situation, I con  quered!" the sentence  has but one main clause:  I conquered. Written  "Having come and  observed, I conquered!"  has but one main clause  and no subordinate  clauses. Writers use  words as a painter uses  paint, arranging and  rearranging for effect.  When a sentence in  English contains only  one word, some other  words are understood. A  shout of "Fire!" is a  condensed version of "I  see a fire!" or "There is  a fire!" At times of  danger we do not waste  words, but the words are  there, well understood.  When the drillmaster  shouts "Halt!" we all  know he means "You  halt!" The subject is  omitted but well  understood. When a  teacher shouts, "Class!"  the boys and girls know  she is saying, "Class  listen!" A sentence so  condensed is called an  elliptical sentence, grammatically defective but  still having a subject or  predicate understood.  Hm .Spuing  r* d  ���it i %'���-: I Sl wimS  When hope is tested  ...we care.  When some one dear departs, the loss is often  accompanied by a feeling of hopelessness.  But reach out to your friends and you'll find  the strength you need. In such a time  you can rely on us ... we understand.  886-9551  0. A. Devlin  Director  1666 Saaview  Gibsont  An elliptical sentence  communicates clearly,,  but hot"so"the Sentence  fragment. The sentence  fragment brings up a  topic, arouses our interest, may contain a  large number of words,  but it does not say or ask  anything about them. An  example might be: The  threat of nuclear  weapons in irresponsible  hands. Our mind says  "Well, what about it?"  The writer has said  nothing. That cluster of  words belongs in a  sentence; it cannot stand  by itself.  English examinations  usually contain sets of  sentences to correct.  "State the sentence fault  and correct the  sentence." Sentence  fragments are favourite  ammunition for this exercise.  Faulty co-ordination is  another popular choice  for examiners. "Caesar  was murdered and he  refused the crown three  times." Two entirely  separate ideas cannot be  placed side by side and  given equal importance.  A correction might be to  separate the two clauses  and put them in  chronological order as:  "Caesar refused the  crown three times.  Caesar was murdered."  This solution is grammatically correct, but  subordinating the lesser  idea might be more  readable: "Even though  Caesar refused the crown  three times, Caesar was  murdered."  A student can sort out  sentence errors by applying common sense and  determining the readability of the cluster  of words given for correction. Sentence correc  tion does not require a  great knowledge of  English grammar.. It  does require an ear Tor  good English, which, in  turn, comes from  reading well written  books and hearing  English well spoken.  Even as the food a  child eats adds to his  growth and stature hour  by hour and day by day,  increasing his height and  weight, the words the  child hears and .the  things he reads add to his  English vocabulary and  expand his capacity to  learn and discriminate.  Vikings called the brain  the "word hoard". A  senior student who has  been carelessly and  slothfully taught, will  have inferior communication skills.  Few people speak in  complete sentences in  daily informal conversation, nor are they expected to. We all use colloquial expressions,  body language, and the  ebb and flow of conversation among friends  depends much on our  sensitivity and deep  understanding of mutually held concepts. The  sitcoms on television depend upon the understanding of the constant  viewer, who quite literally becomes vicariously  one of the group.  A student who plans  to go on to higher education, whose ideas are  such that he is able to  refine them in his own  mind in order to communicate precisely arid  clearly with his colleagues, that student  must take his essay  writing seriously. The  first unit to be mastered,  then, is the formal  sentence.  Walter and Jean Sturdy have retired from their  practice at Seaview Plaza in Gibsons.  -George Matthews Photo  Chiropractor retires  After 30 years in the  practice of Chiropractic,  Walter Sturdy, D.C. has  now retired and is living  at Roberts Creek.  For the past four years  he has practiced at Gibsons in semi-retirement  with Mrs. Sturdy as his  receptionist. Ralph  Schmit D.C. is taking  over his practice at the  same location.  Dr. Sturdy has served  his profession for a  number of year as President of the B.C.  Chiropractors Association. In 1967 he was  made an Honorary Life  Member of the Canadian  Chiropractic Association.  He served overseas  during the war as a Wing  Commander in the RAF.  On two occasions he was  summoned to Buckingham Palace to be invested by King George  VI with the D.F.C., and  at a later date he was invested with a Bar to the  D.F.C. He was also  "mentioned in Dispatches" several times,  received a special  Bomber Command Commendation and was  made an Honorary  member of the Polish  Air Force.  Mrs. Sturdy served as  a Flight Officer in the  WAAF and it was in the  Air Force that they first  met and were married.  They have three married  children living in West  Vancouver and they are  the proud grandparents  of four grandchildren.  In their retirement  they intend to travel and  pursue their many interests and hobbies.

Public Library funding comes from four  sources. The provincial  Ministry of Provincial  Secretary and Government Services donates a  per capita sum to be used  for books only. In 1981,  they donated $2351. The  Regional Board donated  $1400 in 1981, and the  Village of Sechelt  donated $700. The  fourth source of revenue:  is the $2 annual member-  ship fee and small'  amounts raised through!  book fines and sale of  "weeded" books.  Many decisions will  liave to be made by the  ;tiew Board of Directors.  Egmont News  Space Is at a premium  now, with the accessioning of well over a thousand books since last  summer. The selection is  truly remarkable, and  well worth investigating,  there being an outstanding balance between fiction and non-fiction  books for all tastes and  ages.  In addition to acquiring more space, the new  Board will have to come  to grips with the need for  at least a part time  librarian to relieve the  volunteers of some of the  professional chores other  than their direct service  to the public when the  library is open.  Hours will remain the  same for the time being,  Tuesdays and Thursdays  from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00  p.m. and Saturdays from  1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  TM��.�� YOU = RELAXATION  �� Transcendental Meditation Program  FREE LECTURE  Thursday, March 25th, 7:30 pm  Langdale Elem.

Obviously his lot is nol a  happy one when he's  resiricted io a limited  area. How much more  fun his job would be if  Gibsons could swallow  up the communities of  Langdale, Hopkins,  Soames Point, Granthams, Gower Point and  right oul to Roberts  Creek.  I understand his point  of view, bul I'm surprised io hear lhat Regional  District Areas E and F  sponge on the poor Gibsons' ratepayer, "taking  advantage of the services  the village provides".  I've asked ihis question  before, and I'll ask it  again. Jusl what are  ihese services which  Gibsons provides and to  which we don't contribute?  iribute?  We all pay school  taxes, water laxes and  for the fire department.  We contribute to the  swimming pool. We  arcn'l hooked up lo the  Gibsons sewer system,  nor do we use the services of Ihe dogcalcher.  We contribute lo the  library and ihe health  department on a user pay  basis like everyone else,  as well as volunteering  our time as members of  library, museum boards  etc.  We do, 1 suppose occasionally   use    the  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  ILS USED  FumimwE  W" bu.v H Hollies  888-2812  sidewalks, but that's  about the only facility  provided by the Village  of Gibsons used by outsiders without a contribution, unless, of  course, you want io  bring up Ihe idiocy of the  street lights.  Now, if Gibsons  doesn'l warn us to set  fool over the village  boundaries the council  just has to say so. That  can be arranged. With  the exception of the  swimming pool, all  facilities ihe village offers - slores, gas stations,  library, etc. are available  in other communities,  which would, I've no  doubt, be more than  delighted with our  custom. Just how many  of the stores and other  commercial ventures  would survive if their only clientele were the  residents of Gibsons  village? A half? A  quarter?  In fact, the shoe is on  ihe olher foot isn't it?  The residents of Gibsons  enjoy a wide variety of  commercial outlets,  shopping and recreational facilities because  the people from the rural  areas come in to shop, to  do business, to support  ihe library, swimming  pool elc. Without us,  Gibsons might have little  more than a few corner  stores. And you begrudge us the use of the  sidewalk?  To get back to Rob  Buchan's need for more  territory to plan and the  village's illusion that bigger has to be-better.  There are two questions here. Let's ask first  what Gibsons residents  will gain from expansion?  The theory, I suppose,  is lowered taxes because  of the larger tax base and  more facilities, but you  have to be pretty naive to  buy that one. The new  residents of the expanded municipality will want  all those services the  village enjoys, street  lighting, sidewalks,  sewage treatment, etc.  and as the village will no  longer be close knit and  economical to administer, it'll cost the  earth. Everyone's taxes  will go sky high. There'll  of course, be an expanded bureaucracy at city  hall to copy with the expansion and no doubt  another planner or two!  And for us, what do  we stand to gain by joining the village? Other  than higher taxes, very  little that we haven't  already got - or can have  if v>e want it. Most of us  have water, fire service  and reliable garbage  pickup; we can and do  have street lights where  we want them and our  septic tanks function  nicely thank you. All 1  can think of is the dog  'catcher, and while I'm  sure many people would  appreciate   the   neigh  bourhood dogs being  controlled, it's about all  the village has to offer  us.  As dbg control in the  village isn't yet a 100%  effective operation, it's  unlikely anyone would  be better off if the control, area was expanded  without a larg&ontleiy in  time, money and personnel There may have  been a time when the incorporated village had  services to offer those  who lived in the  unorganised areas,  perhaps we even came in  to admire the street  lights, but that was  before my. timel Since  the rural areas have been  administered by the  Regional Board instead  of from Victoria, we've  gradually acquired the  services we need.  So grow up Gibsons  and stop being such a  crybaby. Put this  dastardly libel of your  good neighbours to rest  for good and all. Put  your own house in order.  I'm sure there are village  residents still in need of  services since the last expansion, and when you  next look over the fence,  dream up some better ex-  :use for keeping your  alanner happyl  Coast News, March 15,1982  Amnesty International  Being non-political,  Amnesty International  concerns itself only with  the problems of the loss  of human rights in  various countries  throughout the world.  The deterioration of  these rights brought  about the defeat of  democratic principles in  Nazi Germany. In these  times oppressive regimes  are epidemic and comparable conditions exist  in over 70 countries in  the world.  Often Amnesty International is the only objective respected  observer, capable of  reporting deplorable  conditions in various  regimes. Today in Central  America with  ac  cusations flying from all  sides, to many the only  question for the conscientious to, ask is:  "How are the citizens of  these countries to  criticize their governments?"  The membership of  Amnesty International  now stands at 325,000.  To many it is at the present the only means to be  effective, since  statistically, prisoners  adopted by Amnesty are  often many times freed.

"Have you decided what you're going to write about In this week's column?" said the polite  voice. "Er...um...ah...cheese?" I countered. There was a small  but definite silence,. "Next week", said the voice, "is Saint  Patrick's Day. Perhaps you could write about Irish Stew - I'll  find some pictures of leprechauns to stick around whatever  you do."

As I write this, I hear It Is snowing In Vancouver  'anoithe air certainly feels chilly even on the Sun-  shir* Coast - but there are those who have, In recent warm, sunny weather been preparing their  garden plots.  Gardening Is a most Interesting and rewarding  hobby. It's something I haven't had time for in  over 15 years, but there was a time when we grew  most everything we ate including a good deal of  the fruit. You couldn't grow apples and many  other soft fruits on the prairies, but you could  grow crab apples, various plums, and all sorts of  low-bush fruit, red currants, black currants,  gooseberries, raspberries, and more.  SHOP TALK  by Bill Edney  Speaking of early seeding, the serious gardener  will start many varieties of vegetables and  flowers indoors In shallow flats. Some erect a  small, simply built greenhouse for the purpose.  Transplanting strong seedlings is a good way to  get an assured and early start for many plants.

Everyone else was eating and I was  famished. I went out into the garden and had a  raw carrot, then proceeded to the row of  gooseberry and cranberry bushes and had a good  feast of them. You can Imagine what happened  during the operation in the early afternoon. They  told me it was a messy performance.

Shop around for financial needs  by Sylvia Dollar  In a recent conversation with some retired  friends about the high  savings rates available  today, they mentioned  that unfortunately, their  live savings were locked  in long term deposits  paying only 9 Vi per cent  interest -1 just about hit  the roof! While checking  into it, I discovered that  their funds weren't lock-  BARGAIN  LOT PRICES  For Southern Exposure  Ocean View and Forest View Lots  Presenting  GRANDVIEW HEIGHTS  A 29-Lot Subdivision off Chaster Rd.,  near Cedar Grove Elementary School  SACRIFICE PRICES FROM:  UNDER $39,999  "This is Nol an Offering for Sale"  Enquiries:    Group Pacific Associates  4769 West 2nd Ave.  Vancouver, B.C.

Now my friends  are earning a high rate of  interest on short term  deposits.  Savings accounts have  changed drastically in  the past few years, and  what was smart a few  years ago may not  necessarily hold true today. What is smart,  however, is to choose a  combination of savings  accounts that suits your  needs best.  Consider your lifestyle  and spending habits.  If you have a family or  live an unregimented  lifestyle, you should consider keeping a certain  amount of funds easily  accessible for emergencies. You could keep  them in a chequing account that probably  doesn't earn interest, or  a daily or monthly savings account that does.  Your long term savings  could probably earn  more in a short term  deposit, providing you  have enough to meet the  minimum requirement.  Consider interest rates.  Interest is calculated  ahd paid a number of  ways - daily,' monthly,  quarterly;        semi-_'  annually, however, the  rate of interest is usually  expressed in an annual  rate. According to  Louise Williams,  Manager, Pender Harbour Credit Union, if  you are comparing interest rates, you should  look at how much the account actually earns.  This is an account's net  effective yield. The more  often interest is  calculated and paid, the  higher the net effective  yield.  Consider the financial  institution and Ihe people who work there.  Is the location convenient for you? Do they  offer other services important to you? Are the  people friendly and competent? Depending on  what is important to  you, there may be factors more important  than interest rate. Some  financial institutions offer special benefits for  senior citizens which are  well worth looking into.  Japanese food  at Yoshi's  Despite their Japanese  heritage, Yoshita  Tanaka and his wife Sue  have always served  Chinese food at Yoshi's  Restaurant at the Sun-  nycrest Plaza in  Gibsons..."because  Chinese dishes are so  popular here," he says.  Recently they decided  to introduce the cuisine  of their homeland, and  are now offering a  Japanese lunch. In the  near future they will  serve a Japanese dinner,  too, while maintaining  their Chinese menu.  Yoshi's new dishes: a  crisp salad, miso soup,  tempura (fresh  vegetables in a light flaky  batter), a hearty main  course of beef teriyaki,  with a bowl of steaming  rice, and traditional  Japanese green tea.  Dining at Yoshi's is  enhanced by its serene  atmosphere: soft music,  plants and Japanese wall  hangings.  A satisfying experience.  Yoshi's is open from  Tuesday through Saturday; licensed; lunch  from 12 to 2 pm; dinner  from 5 to 9 pm.  ���Jack Wallace  CONTRACTING  Sunshine Coast  SUPPKRSIMSTUIERS Of PAVING STOWSIUNDSCUWU PRODUCTS ���  ���boimosknkj bc mm  -EtttUSWEKUEflSSERVMMSUI.^ j  Business Directory  CONTRACTING  EXCAVAT IMG  Cedar-West  Propertiei Ltd.

Rieta Hanson, who runs  the Sunshine Coast  Fitness Group, and  about 400 fitness enthusiasts between the  ages of six to sixty, all  seem lo agree.  Then there is the  specially-geared 'Fitness  for Kids' group at Gibsons Elementary School  and the Seniors Fitness  group slated to begin  March 11th at Harmony  Hall, and that just about  covers everybody on the  Sunshine Coast.  At least, that is Hanson's dream: to make  fitness a part of  everybody's lifestyle.  "We are just beginning  to touch the tip of the  pyramid," says Hanson,  who has a YMCA National Certificate Course  in Fitness and has trained at Capilano College in  Fitness Leadership.  Tall and lithe Hanson,  who lives on Gambier  Island, is not surprised  that her version of the fit  life has caught on so  rapidly since she initiated  morning classes a year  ago at Roberts Creek  Community Hall and expanded to evening  classes at Elphinstone  gym last September.  At one point, her class  looks and sounds like an  evening at the disco. At  other times, the music  sweeps everyone along to  ever greater heights of  physical endurance, doing gruelling bends and  lifts, that might surprise  even   the   most   avid  NEW  777771 SPRING  'Lfk SCHEDULE  THE LOGGERS ARE  GOING BACK TO WORK  QS5m3T ?,m3Ii]  HON  9:45 AM  11:45 AM  2:45 PM  fitness lover.  While the class,  casually attired in  anything that allows free  movement, sweats and  groans, Hanson has  enough strength to smile,  call out directions and  shout   encouragement.  "I don't believe in being too easy. It seems tc  me there must be a  challenge to it to draw  everyone out. The fact is  that being fit means feeling good and people like  to feel good.  "I vary the music at  each class and change the  routine so it never  becomes boring. My goal  is to encourage daily  fitness, so people will  begin to feel the need to  exercise every day. Cycling, swimming, jogging,  or some form of exercising, should be a part of  everyone's life."  Muscular endurance,  strength, flexibility and  cardiovascular efficiency  are the goals of the  fitness program. The  music "puts you in the  mood" and the feeling  of fun comes from the  social aspect of everyone  "being in this thing  together".  For more information,  contact Rieta Hanson at  886-2875.

Hydro seen  the light at last? It would  be very nice to think so,  but maybe we shouldn't  get too optimistic just  yet.  However, I think  Hydro deserves to be  thanked for doing  something we suggested  it should do months ago.  I refer to the method of  clearing brush that  Hydro crews are using  on the right-of-way to  the East of the Christmas  tree farm.  lt doesn't seem all that  long since Fred Holland  and I went up to see the  disaster caused by the  spraying of the right-of-  way from a helicopter  with the herbicide Tor-  don 101. There was really no control over the  spread of the chemicals  and as this was in the  crew with chain saws and  machetes was sent in. It  would also help the  unemployment situation.  The whole idea was  said to be ridiculous and  impractical among other  things. It is good to  know that the powers  that be have seen the  light and long may they  continue to do so.  Keep up the good  work, B.C. Hydro!  ��� ��� ���  Thursday night's  meeting of the Sechelt  Marsh Society was a  great success judging by  the numbers of people  who turned out to listen  to Wayne Campbell talk  about the sea birds of  B.C. They were not  disappointed and 1 got  the impression that  Wayne, who is recognized as the ultimate  authority on birds in  B.C.,  was quite over-  Gibsons watershed, Fred whelmed     by     the  was particularly concern- hospitality afforded him  Fifth Annual  April Fools' Run  ed. We were assured that  the herbicides were quite  safe, both to humans  and wildlife in general,  that it was biodegradable  etc., etc., etc. and not to  worry. Tests have proved  that our concerns were  justified.  At a cost of $600 an  hour for the helicopter,  the cost of chemicals and  the lack of controls,  damage to the creeks and  the fish and also to the  birds and wildlife in  general, we suggested  that the job could be  done just as efficiently  and far safer if a ground  Once again it's time to  polish up the old running  shoes in anticipation of  the 5th Annual April  Fools' Run, the half-  marathon jaunt from  Gibsons to Sechelt. If  you've been doing some  running, but just the  thought of attempting to  go the whole 13 miles  ives you,-a,; Charley-  orse, tike heart I  There's an easy way to  make the distance this  year. Get a few of your  runner friends together  and form a relay team.  Each group can choose  the distance each  member will run and  then position its  members   along   the  route. Juice and Aid Stations will be set up every  three miles. It is suggested that each team has  a driver available to pick  up its runners and take  them all to the finish  line, after they've finished their stint.  All teams and groups  on the Sunshine Coast  are challenged to participate in this fun event.  While serious runners  wilt be vying for the  coveted Const News  Challenge Cup, a prize  will also be given to the  relay team which fields  the most runners. 1  We hope to see teams'  from schools - both  students and teachers,  from hockey, soccer,  basketball and rugby  clubs, from TOPS and  Weight Watchers  groups, from the Scouts  and Cadets, from local  stores and merchant  groups and, of course, a  strong showing is expected from the Sunshine Coast Fitness  Group, Gibsons Swimming Pool - and even some  local pub patrons.

Instead of  sandwiches, try muffins  for a change with cottage  cheese and fruit salad.  How about a thermos of  soup, oatcakes and a  pear? Or a huge salad  with ham, tuna, chicken,  cheese or shrimp is  super! Leftovers are easy  and often better the second time around.  Here's a thought from  a local dentist: Many  snacks, especially junk,  tend to be high in  fermentable carbohydrates. These are  deadly to the teethl Low  sugar snacks, on the  other hand, are many  and varied.  Choose from all the  food groups and be sparing with things like jams,  jellies, poPe Jel-o "d  dried fruits, which stick  to the teeth. Even peanut  butter forms plaque and  is not recommended  habitually.  You're dieting and are  aghast that snacking is  not for you? Why not?  Eating smaller portions  more often helps some  folks to trim the fat. The  body gets less change to  store extra calories when  the need balances with  the demand.  Low calorie snacks or  lunches on the run might  be low fat yogurt and  sugar-free or fresh fruit.  Add half a sandwich - no  butter   or   mayonnaise  -maybe with a low  calorie salad dressing  spread on the bread. Or,  how about juice and an  egg; or of course a good,  filling, crisp salad?  So, in keeping with  Nutrition Month,  remember the four food  groups:  1) milk and milk products, 2) fruits and  vegetables, 3) bread and  cereals and 4) meat and  alternates.

Wayne Campbell, the  Associate Curator of  Birds and Mammals at  the B.C. Provincial  Museum, believes that  the Museum should be  brought to the people.  Because funds for this  branch of the Museum  are grossly inadequate,  this dedicated man has a  staggering work load of  study, research, documentation and public relations. It took two years  to get Sechelt on his program of public appearances.  Wayne, who is one of  the top authorities on the  birds of British Columbia, enthralled an audience of over eighty  people of all ages, crammed into Mr. Wohl-  berg's room at Sechelt  Elementary. His relaxed  method of presentation  and the use of everyday  colloquial language  made the technical  aspects of his subject  - readily understood.  ! Wayne's general topic  was the seabirds of our  coast, both inshore and  offshore. He stressed the  fact that our knowledge  of these species is very  limited and that he and  his colleagues need the  I help of fishermen and  I coastal residents to in-  ! crease our knowledge of  the interaction of the  birds and man. It is only  rtow being realized that  it only are we having  effect on the lifestyles  ft ihe. Wrds,. 1>tft the  Is ^ajiottelfijmr  "tactor fn our dil-  .^ life.  He pointed out that  the Glaucous-winged  Gull, because of mans'  garbage, is on the increase and is nesting on  many unusual sites including city roof-tops.  The droppings from  these birds can cause a  fungus growth that can  cause a disease in human  lungs. He said that it had  been recently discovered  that Mrs. Kippin, a resident of Redrooffs Road,  Halfmoon Bay, had this  disease. Mrs. Kippin has  spent a lot of time in St.  Mary's Hospital and  now is obliged to spend  the winter months in a  desert climate because of  her lung condition. She  contracted the disease  when her husband was  light keeper on Merry  Island just outside of  Halfmoon Bay.  The   residents   of  Passage Island, in Howe  Sound, whose source of  fresh water is from a  rainwater catchment  system, are in trouble  because a greatly increased seagull population is  causing pollution of their  water supply.  Wayne also showed  some very interesting  slides of pelagic (ocean  living) birds and drew  our attention to the salt  glands on their beaks  which enables them to  extract fresh water from  the ocean.  Before the evening  meeting, Wayne Campbell enjoyed talking to  students at Roberts  Creek school and gave  them some interesting instruction on marine  biology in his free and  easy style which the kids  enjoyed very much.  Wayne's visit to Roberts  Creek school was made  possible through the efforts of Sechelt Marsh  Society member Janette  Gordon of Roberts  Creek.  owd  rJr.  ���       .' .    :  -��w   J~1*M*    .  h* ft rwtM* ���*>**?��<  ���-'���'���,      aA ���irt;'<i)l  '  NOTICE  OF INTENTION  TO APPLY FOR  DISPOSITION OF  CROWN LAND  Approximately 1 hectare  in land recording district  ol Vancouver.

Area C director, Chailes Lee cast the  only negative vote.  Al Wagner, chairman of the economic development commission recommended to the Board that  Odvinn Vedo be hired to fill the position on the Sunshine Coasl. Mr. Vedo has successfully held the same  position in the Bulkley Valley for the past three and a  half years.  The position will carry a two year contract at a  salary in the range of $30,000 annually.  Progress made  on Arts Centre  by Julie Warkman  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch started Thursday's  meeting to discuss the Sechelt sewer system on a good  note by graciously acknowledging the regional  district's offer to Sechelt to use a portion of the front  of the sewer facility as a works yard.  Koch noted lhat some fill would be required and  perhaps some tree thinning, but "the cost should be  $1,000 at the outside".  "We will have to be careful what we use for fill, as  il is nexl to Ihe Marsh," added Koch, "and we would  be prepared to share the cost."  PUC Chairman Jim Gurney suggested lhat Koch  lay out a site plan and obtain a cost estimate as soon  as possible. Koch concurred.  If Ihe offer is accepted, the Sechell works yard can  be moved lo the SCRD site, allowing the Arls Centre  to go ahead with its planned expansion.

Conference organizers, Virginia Douglas,  left, and Diane Lim, thank Dr. Eric Paetkau ror his  valuable keynote address. -vmrenetn����  TV and alcohol  contribute to  child abuse  by Vene Parnell  Sexual abuse of children is more prevalent on the  Sunshine Coast than people realize," Human  Resources social worker Harvey Bist told over 200  people al lending a one-day school district conference  on child abuse at Elphinstone School Friday.  "Last year, 20 cases were investigated and that includes child molestation and incest."  Bist, RCMP Sgt. Don McDermid, Dr. Eric  Paetkau, ahd other community resource people,  shared their knowledge and experience with  educators, parents and professional people in an at-  icmpl lo define the extent of the child abuse problem  on Ihe Coast and to seek some answers.  The most obvious answer to emerge from the conference, which discussed emotional, physical, drug  and alcohol abuse of children, was that there is no  answer to the problem.  "Our society contributes to the problem," said Dr.  Paetkau in his keynote address. "Statistics indicate  that the average person will witness 14,000 violent  murders by watching TV and that every seven  minutes a violent act is seen on TV.  "It is a very poor role model for the child to see.  Our society values competitiveness and productivity,  rather than love and acceptance.  "The very best thing a parent can do for a child is  be a secure, self-confident individual, one who the  child can trust. The greatest challenge for parents  should be lo convey those feelings of love and acceptance, to make sure the child knows it is the most important thing."  The police, in dealing with drug and alcohol-  related problems, feel that the low cost and easy access to alcohol makes it the greatest problem in society, both among adults and young people. Vandalism,  thefts, assaults, accidents and impaired driving  charges; keep the police busy, but Sgt. McDermid  feels that our community is no worse than other B.Ci  communities.  Marina  caught  in  red tape  Coho Marina, Madeira Park, has run into a  'catch-22' situation with  its plans for a 22 unit  condominium development. If an immediate  solution cannot be  found, it is possible that  the development will be  scrapped.  Apparently, Department of Highways will  not give final approval to  the project until services  for the 22 units are in  place. Without final approval from Highways,  Coho is unable to obtain  permits for the 22 units.  If permits cannot be obtained before the  regional district enacts a  new by-law which would  limit the development io  11 units, services for 22  units would nol be  necessary.  Chairman Brian Stelck  reported to the Regional  Board that its lawyers  have yet to find a legal  solution lo the problem  and he requested the  Board's permission to  communicate directly  with the Department of  Highways on Coho  Marina' behalf.  Highways has the option  of asking for a bond instead, but has chosen not  lo do so.  As a result of controversial statements concerning  the operations of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board  being made by Sechelt Council members at their  village meetings, Mayor Bud Koch has strongly  warned council members that he, "will not tolerate  any comments regarding the SCRD" in these  meetings. "I will rule any comment on the SCRD out  of order. We are not a watch dog for the SCRD."  At the council meeting two weeks ago, Alderman,  and Regional Board director Charles Lee made at  least three critical comments about the SCRD. One  involved a criticism of the board for paying expenses  for staff members at conferences. Another concerned  the Regional Board's tendency to place its ads, particularly for public hearings in the Coast News.  When contacted by the Coast News for a comment  about why the regional board preferred the paper,  Regional Board chairman Brian Stelck said that he  had been told by staff that because of the complicated and technical nature of advertisements placed by the board, and the need for a high degree of accuracy, the Coast News was the newspaper of first  choice. Stelck said that, "staff is very pleased with  the layout and tends to prefer the Coast News  because of accuracy".  As far as Lee's remarks concerning expense ac-  Sechelt - SCRD  sewer debate  continues  by Julie Warkman  The Sechelt sewer system was once again the subject of heated debate between the Sunshine Coast  Regional District and the Village of Sechelt, this time  at a formal meeting on March 11th at which time  Sechelt formally requested that the SCRD change its  letters patent to allow the orderly changeover of the  sewer system to village administration.  Speaking on behalf of the Village of Sechelt,  Mayor Bud Koch pointed out that since Sechelt is  paying for the system, and since it is the only user, he  would be hard pressed to find a good reason why the  transfer should not proceed. He further noted that as  far as the Village is concerned, the transfer is in line  with the thinking of the Minister of Municipal Affairs.  Objecting to the transfer, Area D director Harry  Almond noted that he does not believe the SCRD has  hampered development in Sechelt because of the  sewer system and that for economic reasons the way  it is set up now, with the regional district holding  both water and sewage functions, an economy of  staff is realized. His last reason for objecting to the  change was the possibility of restructuring.  No conclusions were reached at this meeting, and it  was apparent that, no amicable agreement .will be  reache'i at this time. a  counts of Regional Board staff, the Public Bodies  Financial Information Act report for the years  1978, 1979, 1980 and 1981, reveals that Lee's expenses have been either highest or second highest of  all directors. In 1978 Lee ran up $801.91 in expenses,  compared to the next highest $657.19 for director Almond. 1979 saw Lee spend $1058.95 of public funds  to Hunter's high $1146.%. In 1980 it was Lee,  $1577.75 to Hunter $1195.51 and last year, Lee,  $1323.81 to Hunter's $2126.26.  COME AND ENJOY  THE  ST.
