 Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Delivered tc  Victoria  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  July 14,1981  Volume 35, Number 28  District municipality  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings.  VICTORIA. B C  V8V 1X4  62 I  Decision ^requires united front"  by Fran Bourassa  - Jon Van Afsdetl Pholo  Vehicle owned by California couple came to rest in Egmont Harbour a week ago Sunday. (See Egmont News, Page Six).  CPU not satisfied  Strike continues at Port Mellon  by Vene Parnell  Port Mellon mill-workers continue to strike and CPU 1119  union officials will recommend that workers turn down the latest  forestry industry offer of a 14% wage increase the first year and  12% the second year.  Local 1119 president Dave Gant told the Coast News that  workers will vote ori the latest wage offer at 3 pm. July 14. "We  will recommend they don't accept the offer." The union position is  for a 19% increase both years.  Canfor mill manager at Port Mellon, Harry Cargo, told the  Coast News that management had met with the local union on  "bull session" items and that the company agreed to all or part of  17 of the total 29 items presented. Nine were withdrawn by the  union voluntarily and 3 items couldn't be agreed upon, Cargo  said.  f-  Airport receives grant  " JfcSa     -'..:��� '    "The jointly-owned Gibsons-Sechelt Airport received its  second grant of $175,000 from the Ministry of  Transportation this week.  The first grant financed the feasibility study which dealt  with the forecasting and the sizing for the airport.  The $175,000 grant indicates support for the improvement and expansion project from the Minister, Alex Fraser.  The grant comes from the funding available under the Air  Transport Assistance Program.  New recreation director  Robert Liddicoat of Clearwater has been hired as  Recreation Director in Gibsons. He will replace George  Bodt as Aquatic Director of the Gibsons swimming pool  and will take on additional duties as co-ordinator of indoor  and outdoor recreation programs, Alderman Diane Strom  told the Coast News.  Liddicoat is presently recreation director in Clearwater  and brings with him several years of experience in  recreational work. He was chosen from several "very well-  qualified applicants", Strom said, and is expected to begin  work July 20.  Community plan amended  The amended Sechelt Community Plan, 1980, was  accepted for third reading at'the Sechelt council meeting last  Wednesday.  The revised plan included some of the input from Sechelt  village residents received at the public hearing last month.  President of the Ratepayer's Association, ex-mayqr Merv  Boucher, told the Coast News that he was 'agreeably  surprised' that many of the Ratepayers' recommendations  were implemented in the final draft.  "With one exception, the Ratepayers' objection to the  zoning of Lot 7 to commercial instead of high density  residential, the Plan is basically very good," said Boucher.  The Plan would zone Block 7 to include a mixture of  retail, service, residential and tourist.  "This should be kept residential as it is within walking  distance to the beach, the Boulevard as well as the shopping  area. Commercial in this area will take business away from  Wharf and Cowrie," said Boucher.  "With the rising costs in fuel and automobiles, some of us  will not be able to afford these luxuries," said Boucher.  Copies of the amended plan are available at the Sechelt  Municipal Hall.

"We only had one item to request, and we were turned down,"  Cargo said, referring to the removal of the clause requiring  dummy operators on the site while crane work is being done at the  mill. Canfor offered to install a 35-ton crane to be manned by the  yard crew in exchange for removal of the clause.  Gant said that "the company has to replace their present  outdated crane anyway" and that the union insists that qualified  mill employees be allowed to operate that and rented crane  equipment, as well.  "We have qualified workers who have operated 80-ton cranes  and if there are not sufficient trained operators at the mill, then we  want a training program for them." Gant said that the union was  only talking about crane work necessary for mill operations, not  contracted cranes for mill reconstruction.  Local union demands agreed to by the Canfor management  were: menu improvements, better refrigeration and a greater  variety of food offered at the mill lunph bar; a 50% rebate on the.  purchase of safety boots; the purchase of machinists' safety lenses  and frames; providing rain-gear and protective clothing for-*?  certain jobs; installation of outside phone lines in four control  rooms; an agreement to provide a bigger, more efficient car wash;  payments of an hourly wage to workers attending safety meetings  on their own time; agreement to certain repairs in the mill and-  improvements in vacation policy.  Workers unilaterally decided not to sign the mill log book, an  established policy at all mills so management knows who is  working in case of emergencies and where they can be located.  Cargo said that local negotiations were done in a "very  forthright, friendly manner, with no animosity.  "The company has agreed to build a $2 Vt million shower-locker  rooms complex, according to a previous union request and in  order to find space for it, we will have to relocate the carports.  They are not going to be removed. The transport subsidy is a  question that will have to be resolved at the main negotiating table  as it affects the policy of all Canfor mills in the province."  The union had requested bus transportation, company gas  pumps at the mill site, a gas subsidy or a payment of $2 a day per  registered car pool with three or more persons.  Gant told the Coast News that the proposed centralized shower  complex will include the new administration offices and "is not a  favour to the mill workers, it is something that management  intends to build anyway. They agreed to build a centralized  washup area after we had a three day strike at the mill in 1975  protesting the old facilities at the mill, which were deplorable."  Gant stated that the union has sent a letter to management  protesting the fact that supervisors are bringing their own tools  into the mill and doing repairs while workers are on strike.  "We don't mind them operating equipment to bury the garbage,  for sanitary reasons, but we will undo all the repairs they have  done during the strike when we come back to work, because we'  can't tolerate that."  The presence of non-unionized workers coming in to work on  mill reconstruction jobs is still a major issue of contention, Gant  said. "Management will not move on their position and we insist  that all contract workers be unionized, even if people from  Vancouver have to be hired at greater expense, rather than local  tradesmen."  Gant said that when the union's response to the latest company  offer is voted upon, "It will be the companies' turn to call us back  to the negotiating table. If they do not call us back by Sunday,  then we will see that as an indication that the companies are  willing to take the strike, and it could be a long one."  In the next few weeks the councils and board governing the  Sunshine Coast will be doing some deep thinking on the  ramifications of the 'ministerial suggestion' to restructure local  government to a district municipality or municipalities.  A meeting was held to inform all the politicians of the recent  events after the June 29 meeting in Victoria with the Inspector of  Minicipal Affairs, Chris Woodward ���  Both village councils and the regional board met at the Sechelt  Village Hall July 6 to discuss and express their views on  restructuring.  At the informal meeting they also discussed the steps to be  taken to prepare for the deputy minister's visit scheduled July 30.  I hree's'committees were formed to further examine the  possibilities and implications of forming one, two or more district  municipalities.  One committee, chaired by Alderman/Director Brian Stelck,  will gather information on the financial aspects of the  restructuring. Another will look into the implications  restructuring will have for public works and the ramifications for  the services under the different numbers of municipalities. This  committee will be chaired by Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch. Under the  chairmanship of Gibsons Alderman Bill Edney, the third  committee will look into the difference made to the existing  facilities and staffing that the new structure will bring.  The three committees will report their findings to another full  board and councils meeting July 20.  As an introduction, Alderman Brian Stelck summarized the  events that took place at the meeting in Victoria to those members  who were not present at the interview with Woodward.  Stelck said the SCRD delegation had gone to Victoria to  discuss, among other things, the West Howe Sound Sewer. After  the design plans had been rolled out Woodward asked if the  SCRD was thinking of becoming a district municipality, When he  received a negative answer. Woodward replied:  "You are already extending services to the outlying areas giving  the people no reason to want to form a district municipality. We  will have to be convinced that this is an absolute.impossibility ' .  before we extend any more services. We (the ministry) are looking  at the Sunshine Coast as one district municipality," said  Woodward.  Stelck reported that Woodward had tended to exclude the  Pender Harbour area and later said that the ministry might  entertain the idea of two district municipalities.  "Every question we put forth, the deputy minister answered the  same way," said Stelck, "if we were talking district municipality  the ministry would entertain ideas."  Stelck said that the deputy minister had discussed the point  system of taxation that would be implemented. The minister gave  the example of the Prince George structure where the downtown  area pays 90 points on the system for services and the outlying  areas with no services (i.e. In the Agricultural Land Reserve) 5  points, all on a user-pay basis.  "The deputy minister said there would be many encouragements and benefits for the forming of a district municipality", said  Stelck, "Monies will be made available from the return of the last  three years' taxes from the regional district to the provincial  government. The amount of 30 mills, estimated at $5 million will  be granted. In addition we will receive $220 per person in the  outlying regions and $50 per person in the villages. He also  mentioned that we would enjoy five years relief on the upkeep of  roads and all service roads will be brought up to standard, as well  as five years relief of welfare costs and policing. Woodward also  mentioned that extra dollars will be available for special functions  to set up the municipality."  "We stand to gain a great deal but it is essential that when the  deputy minister comes on July 30, that we present a united front  and an image of co-operation from whatever decision we come  to", said Stelck, "If we end up warring, the people of the Sunshine  Coast will stand to lose much. From the deputy minister's tone it is  inevitable that, whether we like it or not, some restructuring will  be done in this area."  The final decision, Stelck and other members stressed, will have  to be derived from the serious, unemotional and politically  unbiased brainstorming of all the politicians as to what is in the  best interests of the people on the Sunshine Coast.  After the report, each attending member candidly expressed his  or her views. As the pertinent data that will be received from the  committees was not available, many of the opinions stated were  not definitive.  It would be unfair and premature at this time to quote any of the  politicians directly as the meeting was only intended as a briefing.  " Thi iititiill dehbcrati.'irS of the aldermen and directors seemed,  to favour one district municipality for the whole of the Coast. The  count was seven in favour of one, five in favour of two or more,  and one for the maintenance of the status quo.  Reasons for and against thus far mentioned by those in favour  of one or more, centre around the economic benefits of one and  the feeling that representation of the people would be better in  more than one district municipality.  * Oeorga Matthawa Photo  Assorted trash litters power line near Langdale Creek. Authorities  are concerned about possible leeching and danger to children.  (See letter on page 15).  Joint use addendum  Loophole found  Refuse to be cleared  Garbage dumped  The accumulation of garbage on the B.C. Hydro power line  adjacent to Stewart Road in Gibsons has resulted in a series of  complaints by local residents. The trash dumped at the site  includes household refuse, remnants of building materials,  discarded household appliances and even the occasional  abandoned vehicle.  Much of the discarded material has been dumped over the bank  above Langdale Creek and concern has been raised over the  possible leeching of hazardous material into the creek itself.  B.C. Hydro spokesman Al Polok stated that Hydro would  clear the refuse that is accessible within the next ten days. He  further stated that efforts would be made to limit public access to  the illicit dumping ground by ditching and posting signs.  Mr. Polok indicated that Hydro has been faced with the  problem of illicit dumping for some time and on occasion has had  to resort to contacting the people responsible to remove their  garbage.  Those dumping garbage are usually easily identified through  letters or other personal papers left at the sites.  The proximity of the Stewart Road site to the old Gibsons  dump suggests that some Gibsons residents are still used to the  convenience of the former Gibsons dump site. There are four  times a year that garbage can be dumped locally, and while the  need to dump does not always correspond to these times, residents  are urged to plan their garbage dumping needs more carefully.  by Maryanne West  A frustrated trustee Hodgins made a renewed appeal for a  workshop to discuss the problems of joint-use facilities at the  School Board meeting, as another breakdown in communications  threatens further delay in the start of work on the Roberts Creek  Gymnasium/ Community Hall.  It is hoped that a meeting on Tuesday July 14 between the  Chairmen and Secretaries of the Regional and School Boards can  reach an agreement over the wording of the addendum concerning  rental policy which will avoid the documents having to go back  again to the Ministry of Education for approval, a time  consuming hurdle which had already been cleared.  The Board's frustration results from their understanding that  every "i" was dotted and "t" crossed and that work could start on  receipt of approval from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.

The School Board sees no problem as it makes sense to them to  charge enough to cover the operational expenses for which they  have agreed to be responsible, but not more or less. Neither option  makes sense as both would deprive the community, either by the  use of public funds or by overcharging local charitable  organisations.  Please turn to Page 28  ON THE INSIDE...

It is one of our society's  most vivid symbols of failure. It is a clear  indication of management's failure to  manage. It is a failure of workers to keep  their cool, be patient and look for  compromise. It is a failure of our system to  provide logical alternatives to the strike as  a tool in negotiations.  The worker must protect his income, his  working conditions and his right to a  contract with his employer. Management  must protect its economic position and its  right to manage. Between these two  positions lies room for compromise. Most  often, if not always, the distance between  the workers' position and management's is  ridiculously small. That grown men and  women can be so stubborn and so  intractable as to stop talking and start  walking, and in the process harm others,  particularly small businesses, must surely  be seen a failure of human reason.  Those smooth talkers  Speaking of wage increases, it is highly  gratifying lo note that our legislators and  parliamentarians found no great difficulty  last week in negotiating their own raise in  pay.  Our MLA's smoothly and deftly, in a  matter of hours, managed to talk their  employers into a 11% wage increase. In  ���Ottawa, (as proof that the cream always  rises to Ihe top) our MP's pressured their  employers into a 2.1';; wage increase.  It's a shame that negotiators with the  skill of our Ml A'sand MP's have to waste  their tunc in government. With one or two  of these smooth talkers in CUPW, the  PPWC, the IWA, or the B.C. Marine and  Ferry Workers Union, all of our labour  problems would be solved.  NDP house leader Stanley Knowlesand  a handful of New Democrats tried  valiantly to talk their colleagues out of a  raise but those sharp wheelers and dealers  in parliament steamrolled Stanley and  wages went up, no strike, no picket lines,  no conciliators.  Will our politicians be able to solve the  postal dispute so smoothly?  One of the family  Automobile accidents and the injuries  they cause are, unfortunately, such a  common occurance on our highways as to  rarely rate substantive coverage in a  weekly newspaper. Occasionally however,  those who are injured and their families are  so close to us as to draw our immediate  concern and sympathy.  .. The injuries sustained by Bill Proctor,  son of newspaper publishers Dick and  Joan Proctor, in an automobile accident a  week ago Saturday occasioned the concern  of many of the Proctor's friends and  colleagues. Here at the Coast News wc are  concerned not only because Bill's injuries  are serious, which they are; not only  because Bill is a fine young man, which he  is; not only because Bill was a student of  some of us at Elphinstone, which he was;  but because among people in.the same  business, there is a special feeling of  kinship. In a sense, the common work and  enterprise, even among competitors,  creates a sense of family and when one of  our "family" is hurt we feel deeply about it.  The staff of the Coast News sends its  prayers to Bill and his family for a full and  speedy recovery.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  f'��� TffilgyMB  FIVE YEARS AGO  Not available.  TEN YEARS AGO  The planning committee on advice  of Director Cliff Thorold recommended that the matter of zoning, in  the Redrooffs Road, Halfmoon Bay  area be re-examined. Extensive  studies regarding land use and public  hearings to correct irregularities were  suggested In the meantime appli-  ���.aiicis for rezoning will be held in  abeyance.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  A general meeting on July 7 starting  at 8 pm. in Selma Park Community Hall  will be held to discuss important  business concerning the recent formation of a regional district, which is  expected to be able to take care ol  regional garbage problems. This  meeting has been called by the  Garbage and Disposal board.  There are active recreation committees in Sechelt and Gibsons. One  sought $625 from Sechelt's council for  summer recreation activities. The  committee settled for $70. The Gibsons Recreation committee, while it  did not ask for a specific amount, was  granted $105 towards its swim classes.  In the meantime, Gibsons Recreation  committee sent out a letter "to all  concerned" with a plea for donations  towards the $600 recreation services  required for this summer's operation.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  An official announcement from  Canadian Forest Products Ltd. outlines details of the $12,000,000 expansion program for the Port Mellon  mill. Involved in this program is work  now underway on four evaporators,  with two hog fuel boilers, a lime kiln,  more chip handling facilities, two new  washers, a screening plant addition, a  five-stage bleach plant and new  centrifugal type pulp cleaners to come.  There is also possibilities of a new pulp  warehouse.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The Merchants Credit Association of  the Sunshine Coast has now been  subscripted 100 percent, embracing  every business on the coast. This is a  wonderful step forward in our evergrowing communities, a step that is  advantageous not only to the merchants but to everyone on the Coast.  Through co-ordination of credits  with credit bureaus of the province a  poor credit risk cannot come into this  area and load a merchant with debt he  cannot handle. Such a liability must be  buried in the price one pays for any  commodity. Eliminate such added  expense and prices could be kept  lower.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The Phi Beta Gamma camp for  underprivileged children will open the  first ol three camps sometime at the  end of this week.  Under supervision of Miss Joan  Finnen, the camp will cater to 30  children at each of the three meets  slated for this summer.  One time part of the DePencier  property, the camp has recently been  renovated and repainted. A new  bunkhouse has been added since last  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Quick thinking on the part of John  Atlee, of Headlands, saved the life of  Sharon Tyson when the eight-year old  girl fell from the Government float at  Gibsons. Realizing she could not  swim, John dove into the water fully  clothed and succeeded in pulling her  out.  Bargain Harbour, 1909. Robert and Clara Donley had arrived at the mainland beach near the site of  an ox-logging camp for a season in a tent before moving to Edgecombe Island. The two oxen seen  here are travelling light; the ring under the yoke hangs idle. Ted Winegarden, who as a boy watched  some of the last of these teams drag logs down the Moodyville skid-road to a railway near the  Gibson's Landing wharf at the time of this Robert Donley photo, says that the logging ox was of no  particular breed. A neutered bull calf was especially fed to produce weight and strength. There was a  great demand for these animals during the last twenty years of the nineteenth century and the first ten  of the twentieth. Then, with timber within easy access gone, loggers were obliged to turn to horses  and steam engines for motive power. Robert Donley's negatives, which he processed in his own  darkroom, remain clear after more than seventy years. Photo courtesy Ida Higgs and Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum. t.R.

Wc have decided lo  rc-rim a three part scries that  John wrote in the summer of  l')77. The scries, known as  "The Iron Creek Calvary" Is  Burnside at his best.  PART II  We dropped the curtain last  week on the black comedy of  the Iron Creek Cavalry as the  intrepid and inept adventurers  were blundering in the dark on  the side of a mountain somewhere at the west end of the  Crowsnest Pass, outside of  Fernie and above, we were  assured, Iron Creek. Two of the  group. Hank Bath and Napper  Jack, had laready despaired of  the innumerable re-packings of  the black mare, the blundering  in precipitous blackness among  impenetrable underbrush, and  had deserted the little safari  preferring to huddle over a tiny  fire in the midst of it all to any  further wrestlings with the  Kennedy Trail.  The rest of us. three in  number, chose to lead the other  three horses on the heels of the  indefatigable Kennedy, our  guide and planner, he of the  broken elbow and the single  flashlight. I said last week that  the party was about evenly  divided between those who  thought the trail had never  existed except in some murky  recess of the Kennedy mind and  those who thought it had once  existed but no longer did. I was  of the latter persuasion. I had  no doubt whatsoever that it  had once been a trail and had  no doubt, either, that it was so  long ago that nothing larger  than a wood beetle had traversed that particular mountain  ridge after dark in years. We  remaining followers were  strung out in single file groping  downwards in pitch black. It  was so dark that you couldn't  see the horse you were leading.  1 was fortunate in that Jack  Worthington was ahead of me  leading the old white mare.  When he had to stop I usually  got a sense of the horse's  whiteness just before I walked  into it. But the night was  punctuated by the muffled  curses of Thompson behind me  as every time' wc halted he  walked into the rear end of my  slightly darker horse.  That horse behaved beautifully. I have described him as  having an uncertain temperament but that was only what I  had been told. He had run away  with Kennedy and that diabolical chubby little man did have  the marks of the horse's rear  feet on his belly but in his  dealings with me he, the horse  of course, was an absolute  gentleman. At one point as we  edged around a hairpin bend,  with Kennedy's light long lost  in the bush or the bends ahead.  1 missed my footing and fell off  the trail coming with all my  weight with a tremendous yank  on the horse's mouth. He stood  stock still and patient till 1  scrambled up beside him again.  On another occasion a branch  snagged in his pack and in  trying to pull through he  yanked the whole pack around  and under his lower belly. It  was the pack which held the  oats. I felt the tug at the other  end of the bridle as the horse  stopped, felt him lurch towards  me, heard the tearing of the  underbrush and he had suddenly stopped again. 1 called for  the light and up the trail  towards me past the white marc  came Kennedy of the Lump  with his plaster cast glinting.  He flashed the light on the  horse and we saw the pack  upside down under its belly.  Without thinking much about  it I crawled under to loosen it  and straighten it out. It was  only when I got under there and  started fiddling with the straps  underneath the horse that  Kennedy told me it had tried to  kick his head off the previous  day and shone the flashlight on  the hoof-marks on his belly for  my further edification. Again  the diabolical laugh rang out as  Kennedy chortled his glee at  the sudden, frantic, careful  haste of my movements, but  again the horse was patience  itself.  In fact there was a very real  bond between the men and the  horses - Hank Bath excepted,  of course. The horses realized  as fully as the men that  Kennedy had landed us all in an  absurd pickle and that the best  Way out of it was co-operation  all round. Sometimes Kenne  dy's voice would announce,  "Deadfall, lads!" and sometimes would stand by till we got  over it with his light playing on  the obstacle. More often the  terrain would not allow his  proximity and we would find  ourselves faced with a chest-  high fallen tree in the middle of  the way in the total dark. Then  it was duck under, transfer the  reins to the other hand - and  now for the horse. The reins  went almost straight up in the  air - firmly, as the horse you  couldn't see held back. Coaxing and encouraging and  tugginggently you waited while  the horse inspected the obstacle, then there was the lunge  and the slackening of the reins  and he was coming and you  threw yourself blindly to one  side into the bush so he could  land where you were standing.  Then wearily out of the bush,  take your bearings to try to find  where the lamp had gone, or  the white mare, or at least the  voices and the bush blunder-  ings if there was nothing  visible, and on again.  It was half past three in the  morning before we strugglet  into a flat clear place on the  valley bottom. Worthington  had a splendid fire burning  inside an old tree stump in a  matter of moments and we  unpacked and tied the horses,  ate something canned and  wordless with fatigue crawled  inside our sleeping bags muttering sleepy, cold curses at the  figure of the chuckling Kennedy who was already vanishing,  flashlight, broken arm and all,  back up the trail for Hank Bath  and Napper Jack.  It was the coldest, darkest,  pre-dawn hour before 1 woke  by the fire and heard them  coming. From a long way off  the crashings in the bush and  the laughter of Kennedy and  the cursing of Napper Jack  announced their arrival. From  Hank Bath there came never a  sound.  It was Hank who stumbled  into the firelight first and it was  obvious immediately what had  happened. He was bent double  under an enormous burden.  The top half of his wiry little  body was entirely obscured by  it. Obviously despairing of the  Please turn to Page Three  [Slings & Arrows!  [George Matthews^^-  by George Matthews  Where is it that political life  is so venal, so corrupt, so filled  with rampant "pork-barelling"  as to defy the human imagination? Louisiana? British Columbia? Argentina? All good  choices but none of these  jurisdictions comes close to the  state of political life in Israel.  The circumstances leading up  to the election two weeks ago.  and the subsequent jockeying  for power to see who would  control the l."��0 scat Knesset  reflect badly on Israel's national and international prestige.  It is common to think of  Israel as a young, vibrant  idealistic nation. This myth is  founded on a sympathetic  world community and an  overly protective press. The  facts do not support such a  favourable view.  The world view of Israel is  that of a sophisticated, urbane  society forming a civilized  bridgehead for western culture  in an otherwise primitive Arab  world. The belief is that  modern Israel was populated  by displaced European Jews  and American professionals  yearning for the adventure of  nation building. Certainly  Israel did become home for the  survivors of the Holocaust and  has benefitted bv the arrival of  well educated, idealistic former  Americans.  However, half of Israel's  population, particularly those  arriving after 1956. have come  from Arab nations where, as a  result of Israel's historic conflict with her neighbours, these  wretched folk had been persecuted. The arrival of these  oriental Jews has resulted in a  substantial change in Israeli  culture. The oriental Jews are  generally poor, uneducated  and given to religious fanaticism, not to mention an  undying hatred of all things  Arab.  The political consequence of  these newer waves of immigrants has been a shift to the  political right, a kind of simple  populism characterized by  religious orthodoxy and redneck politics.  For 30 years. Israeli politics  was dominated by the Labour  Party, supported largely by  educated Europeans. Labour  party politics were generally  left of centre and generally  socialistic. In maintaining  power, Labour was often  obliged to seek the support of a  handful of the religious parties.  The price paid for this support  was the maintenance of religious custom and tradition  including the closing down of  transportation facilities on the  Sabbath and the religious  control of civil functions.  More recently however, right  wing elements, represented by  the Likud party have become  more powerful. More than just  symptomatic of the rise of  religious orthodoxy everywhere, the Israeli right is  hardline on everything from  domestic politics to negotiations with the Arabs. It is also  cynical and corrupt.  Last January when the first  polls were taken on the July  election, the Labour Party was  strongly in the lead with 5S  scats projected. The ruling  Likud could account for no  more than 20. In February and  March, an unfortunate clash  between the leaders of the left  cut into Labour support and by  March Labour had slipped to  45 scats to the Likud's 33.  Mcnachin Begin, Premier  and leader of the Likud Party  resorted to a series of "pork-  barelling" exercises, including  the lowering of import duties  on colour T. V. sets, designed to  buy votes. Even more cynically,  Begin manufactured a crisis in  Lebanon and gave the impression that Israel was being  threatened by the Syrian  occupation forces. There is-  nothing like a military threat,  real or imagined, to rally the  forces of the right in Israel. As a  last act in inviting world  opinion against a beleaguered  Israel. Begin ordered the  bombing of the French sponsored nuclear power station in  Iraq.  By the time Begin's invented  crisis had taken hold of the  popular imagination the Likud  had gained enough popular  support to account for 45 seats,  while Labour, by the end of  May. had a slipped to 42.  June saw the Likud with 46  seats and Labour with 40. At  election time, enough Israeli  voters had seen through the  shallow tactic to cut into the  Likud lead and the final results  saw Begin with 49 seats.  Labour with 48 and the other  parties sharing the remaining  23 seats. With support from a  handful of the religious parties.  Begin will be able to control  probably 63 of the 120 seats, a  slim majority which wijj no  doubt be threatened over the  next few months.  While the political huck-  sterism of Begin and the Likud  produced a happy result for  Israel's right, it is. in the long  run. a black day for a country  that held so much promise for  its people. The sick Israeli  economy, the flagging international support for Israel's cause  and the awakening Arab world  promise an uncertain future for  Israel and her people.  It would appear that in the  eighties. Israel's greatest enemy  is not outside her borders, but  rather on the inside. Coast News, July 14, 1981  ,       ICntiTnGtfVj        I  VlrtlOOlftTrHVlK,  Letters to the Editor  "Super municipality" slapped  Editor:  Here we go again. The  latest ploy to transfer costs to  property owners is Bennett's  new super municipality for  the Sunshine Coast. When  election time rolls around,  he'll bribe you once more ���  with your own money.  The facts are simple: municipalities pay a larger share of  police, highway, welfare and  planning costs; regional  boards and villages pay less.  (Regional boards, 4 mill  limit; villages, 25 mill limit;  municipalities, SO mill limit).  As a municipality we will pay  these new costs: Police  (25 x $40,000 per man) 1  million. Highways maintenance and subdivision approval  staff costs - l'/i million,  plus a share of welfare and  any other costs we are stuck  with.  Since a mill is worth  $100,000 here, this translates  into a twenty-five mill increase  across the board for every  taxpayer on the Sunshine  Coast. These new costs will be  paid regardless of all the  blather about grants et cetera,  from Lee and Stelck who are  pushing Bennett's plan. The  grants they talk about won't  even pay for the new equipment, buildings and land  required for the new municipal complex which will be  located, no doubt, in Sechelt.  If you want to know what  25 mills means, look at your  tax notice. It's roughly half  your present school tax.  Certainly, I agree that local  government could be reorganized; but why charge us  25 mills extra, Mr. Bennett?  Mr. Stelck? Mr. Lee?  The answer is simple as  well. Under new provincial  rules, the developers on the  Coast won't get any more  water and sewer systems paid  for by the province unless we  become a District Municipality. Suddenly all those  fiscal conservatives we elected  are ready to charge you 25  mills without batting an eye.  Why?  In any conflict between the  business community and the  rest of the taxpayers, why is  it that the homeowner gets the  short end of the stick? Mr.  Bennett? Mr. Stelck? Mr.  Lee?

Counterpoint to his laughter came  arigther outburst of sorrowful,  cursing, eloquence from Napper Jack behind him as he  found a hole that I had tumbled  injo a few hours earlier. He  lurched into view, a woebegone  ligire hobbling on the sides of  hij-'cowboy boots in the last  etftiiemity      of   exhaustion.  Nothing in his career as a  bartender had prepared him for  this. Even Hank Bath stirred  under his load and virtually  from the ashes turned towards  the last man in. It was a sight  reminiscent of the entry of the  dehydrated Jimmy Peters into  Empire Stadium at the end of  the marathon in 1954 when he  arrived a half hour ahead but  unable to find or crawl his way  once around the track to the  finish line.  It Was little Hank from under  his horse-pack and who hated  horses who found the comment. "It's a strange, strange  world we live in, Napper Jack,"  he said and collapsed again.  But now we were there, in the  bottom of Iron Creek in the  land of the elk, and hunting  could begin. Perhaps next week  we could take a last look at the  Iron Creek Cavalry and the  great elk hunt.  Covering  ihe Coverage  Homeowners Package  Policies  Almost all owner-occupied dwellings are insured  under a Homeowners Package Policy (H.O.) form.  With slight variations, virtually every insurance company offers this type of  package. It is an excellent  policy, combining multi-  peril coverage with simplicity of form.  The H.O. form consist of  many coverages consolidated into one policy. It  provides for coverage on the  house, outbuildings, personal belongings, additional  living expenses and includes  a comprehensive personal  liability section. The key  figure on this policy is the  limit carried on the house  itself. All the other coverage  limits (except liability) are  based on a percentage of this  amount.  There are three types of  H.O. packages available:  Standard Form - By far the  most popular and least  expensive. It is a Named  Perils policy, or. in other  words, it tells you what you  are covered against.  Comprehensive Form -Just  the opposite of the Standard  form, it is by far the least  popular and most expensive. It is an "All Risk" form,  meaning it tells you what  you are not covered against.  If it docs not state otherwise,  you must be covered.  Broad Form - This is the  middle of the road policy,  combining Named Perils  cover on personal belongings and "All Risks" on  buildings.  As probably 85% of H.O.  policies are written on the  Standard Form, we will  concentrate on this form for  the next few weeks.  SUNSHINE COAST INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD.  Box 375.

We are  looking lor the address of two  other girls Maury knows. He  has forgotten the house-number and isn't all that sure of the  street. We blunder on through  thai warren of gaunt frame  houses and the lofty new high-  rises that are beginning to  proliferate among them.  Rounding a corner, we head up  a narrow, tree-lined avenue. A  cab pulls up in front of us.  deposits a woman and roars off  into the nighi. She stands there,  swaying uncertainly, obviously  in much the same condition as  we arc. In the soft blur of the  streetlight, she appears lo be  about thirty-five and tolerably  good-looking. "I'm going to  check this scene out" declares  Maury.  "Shit. man. she might figure  we're rapists or something and  holler cop!"  "No-way. Just leave it to  me." I watch nervously as he  approaches the woman who is  tumbling in her purse. "Excuse  me madam but I wonder if you  could help us?"  Drunk as she is. the woman  looks understandably startled  at being accosted by a strange  young man on a deserted street.  Maury really pours on the  charm however.  Amazingly, they are soon  chalting like old friends. The  upshot is that she invites  Maury and I to bring our liquor  up to her place. Soon we are  sneaking shoeless through a  piichblack hall. She has stressed that we must be very quiet.  Her name is Ethel and her  apartment seems rather musty  and old-fashioned. The furniture is shabby and well-worn.  There is the distinct sense of  having somehow entered another era. Ethel finds three  glasses and we start in on the  whisky. In the cruel light. I can  see that she is much older than I  had first imagined. Her haggard face, heavily plastered  with make-up. wears an expression of desperate gaiety.  She .-��� ^tameless!" flirting with  Maury. He seems to be enjoying himself but I'm starling to  find Ihe whole situation more  than a little grotesque and  depressing.  We finish the whisky and  start on the wine. Ethel has put  some scratchy 78 dance records  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  on her ancient phonograph.  She and Maury stumble about  the room, locked in a passionate embrace. The more disheveled Ethel gets, the older she  looks. I he whole place smells  oddly of mothballs and stale  cooking. I note by her clock  that I can still catch a last bus  home, "listen, man. I'm going  to split."  "Yeah okay. I'm going to  hang in here."  I depart that oppressive  place in considerable relief.  Next day, Maury phones me.  "Jesus. v\ hal a freaky scene that  was. She must've been seventy  If she was a day. Like waking  up with your own grandmother. (1 Ihink the place is  some kind ol retirement home.)  She threw me a bit of bread  though so I guess il was worth  it. 'Just a gigolo, everywhere I  go...' " he croons resignedly.  He wants me to come down-  towii and continue the spree  bul I've had enough insanity  for a bit. I am also in the  process of moving to North  Vancouver where my brother  has offered me a room in the  large house he has rented there.  My feelings about Maury, even  at this early point, are quite  ambivalent. I am impressed by  his obvious talent; his free-  swinging amorality but I have  already seen evidence of a dark  desperation beneath the hand-  sonic facade. Some sixth-sense  urges me to proceed with  caution.  Maury keeps in persistent  contact however. He has given  me little tangible cause to avoid  him   al   this   point   and   we  continue to meet at fairly  regular intervals, primarily to  drink and discuss writing. He  has moved in with a girl and is  ostensibly living a pretty stable  existence. It does not last for  long. The girl turfs him out and  he becomes a street-nomad  again.  1 have often told him of the  Sunshine Coast where my  mother lives. He now declares  he is going up t here to get a job  at the pulp-mill. It sounds like a  reasonable idea and I wish him  luck. About three weeks later,  having heard nothing, I decide  to head home for a visit. Maury  has already come and gone,  leaving a string of bad cheques  and worse feelings in his wake  He has used my name as n  reference in a couple of instances. Considerably incensed hv  his unscrupulous behaviour. I  vow I'll have no further  dealings with Maury. Shortlv  after this. I run into Floyd the  sculptor and find he has taken  off to ihe States.  (A fine line)   Summer love  l,\ Bruce Robinson  At the beginning of the  summer of l%7, my cousin,  Tony, had the foresight to cut  off the tip of his thumb in a steel  plant, thereby earning for  himself a summer vacation,  courtesy ol the Workers'  Compensation Board.  With time on his hands, so to  speak, Tony decided to spend  his vacation at the cabin with  me. Tony was eighteen then.  good with girls, and he owned a  car. I was fifteen, wanted  desperately to be good wilh  girls and had no car. It couldn't  hurt my chances to spend time  with old cousin.  Following Tony's lead. 1 had  refined my ducktail with water  instead of Brylcreem, I had  bought a pair of penny loafers -  - which one had to wear  without socks to be cool -and I  had purchased a silver chain.  all essential tools in the pursuit  of summer girls.  Tony's car was a very ordinary, slant-six Valiant, but if he  revved it up in neutral and then  slammed it into drive he could  burn rubber. Sometimes.  My boat wasn't exactly a  dream either. Il was a ten foot  plywood dinghy which I had  salvaged, then patched and  fibreglassed. Despite my efforts, it leaked constantly and  as well, it listed to the left.

Tony gave me precious drops  of his "special cologne", which,  he intimaled, possessed powers  not unlike those of crushed  rhinoceros horns. 1 let him do  all the talking and suddenly the  girls down the beach were  laughing and blushing, and the  lour of us were on our way to a  picnic.  The picnic was the beginning  of a meaningful relationship  for both Tony and his girl, and"  yours truly and my little friend.  The girls were not only cool,  they were pretty and the right  ages. Ah yes. Every fifteen year  old boy should spend one  summer necking and combing  his hair.  The four of us spent most of  the summer picnicking at  Frenchman's Cove, swimming  all day, diving from the rocks,  necking, combing our hair and  listening to the transistor radio.  At night. Tony and 1 would don  penny loafers and levis and  head down to the girls' house  for a barbecue.  The girls who were also  cousins, naturally, were staying  at the same cabin, making it  much easier to co-ordinate  sneak-outs. The whole thing  was quite innocent, actually.  The girls would come back to  the cabin, and we'd drink  orange crush and play cards all  night, always threatening to  play strip poker, but never  really doing it.  No summer is completely  without conflict, however. The  major falling-out between  Tony and I occurred as a result  of his love for practical joking.  His favourite ploy was to wail  lor me to fall asleep and then  sneak noiselessly up to me and  scream in my ear. 1 was a  nervous wreck after a couple of  weeks of this, but I finally  exacted revenge.  Early one morning I crepl  into Tony's bedroom, pulled  back his covers, lit a string of  firecrackers - left over from the  previous Hallowe'en -- tossed  them into bed with him, and  then ran like hell. Judging from  the intensity of cousin's yells,  my prank was a resounding  success. Being a prudent lad  and considerably smaller than  my cousin, I didn't come home  for two days.  Our days were always filled.  When the girls went shopping  in Sechelt. Tony and 1 chugged  out fishing under the indomitable Seagull's power, or water'  skied behind my neighbour's  speedboat, or dove off the pier  down at Cooper's marina.  Inevitably though, it would  all come to an end. There  would be that last ferry ride  home, tear-filled good-byes on  the deck and fervent hopes,  never seemingly fulfilled, that  we'd all do it again next year.  1 remember my sister telling  me years ago that summer  romances never last, but that's  just not true. I'm still in love  with summer.

Bist has astounded Sunshine Coast craftspeople with  her incredibly refined batik  technique, since she first  burst onto the local scene last  fall. She is slated to offer a  batik workshop to both adults  and children in the upcoming  Arts Festival in August and,  judging from the work she  exhibits, it appears that there  is no one more qualified than  she to teach the complicated  tie-wax-dye art.  Bist creates landscapes in  batik that are artistically  pleasing and unbelievably  defined with a variety of  strong lines and colours, so  that from a distance they  appear to be drawn and  painted. Her control over  the dyeing process is admirable and the works reflect  painstaking skill.  Her art is imaginatively  displayed: framed as prints,  stretched over a light box,  quilted and hung freely  from the ceiling, proving that  this lady is innovative as well  as talented. Sizes of the pieces  vary considerably, and in an  era when batik may seem to  have become outdated and  unsaleable, Bist's works are  all snapped up almost as soon  as they become available.  Stephen Jackson, a consistent boat sketcher for  several years, has assembled  a large number of his pencil  drawings into a representational collection of present  and historical marine traffic  along the B.C. coast.  Prints of his most famous  subject, the Persephone, of  TV Beachcomber's fame, are  offered for sale, signed and  numbered, for $80. Others,  framed, vary in price into the  $200 range.  Two coloured pencil drawings stand out among the  monotoned replicas of gill-  netters, yachts, trollers, seiners, sloops, beachcombing  boats, tugs, yawls, cruisers,  and many more memorable  boats of the coast.  The only operating steamboat tug still in existence,  the 70 foot Master, built by  well-known Vancouver builder  Arthur Moscrop in 1922,  is in colour, and also the  42 foot tug Nellie.  Jackson's other character  boats include the 61 foot  Brunette, built in 1890, which  until it was sunk in 1979 was  the oldest working tug on the  coast, and the 115 foot steam  paddle wheeler, the Samson V,  built in New Westminster in  1937.  The Sea Lion, a 130 foot 218  ton deep-sea rescue tug built  in Vancouver in 1905 is reproduced along with local  boats built in Pender Harbour  within the last 20 years. There  is a drawing of a gillnetter -  troller built by Victor Gool-  drup and one of the Vulture, a  31   foot   beachcombing   tug  built by Sam Lamont in 1964.  Non-memorable subjects  such as house boats, prawn  boats and ferry tugs are included in the marine assortment and, in spite of their  individual non - importance,  enhance the total collection by  adding the flavour of variety to  our seafaring surroundings.  Jackson obviously is fascinated by boats and his drawings are detailed rather than  romantically-interpreted.  However, the compositions  are pleasing and interesting  and each boat attracts the eye  for its authenticity as well as  value to the whole collection.  For an informative visual  essay on boating and an  appealing interpretation of  landscapes by two local artists, the Arts Centre display  is enjoyable and worthwhile.  One with the earth  by Bob Hunter  One of the most beautiful  and stirring ideas I've run into  in a long, long time is the  Gaia theory.  It was first suggested about  five years ago by a British  scientist, James E. Lovelock.  Later, he wrote a book about  it, titled Gala: A New Look At  Life on Earth.  Lovelock rejects the popular  notion of the planet we live on  as an inert lump of rock.  Instead, he suggests that  "the entire range of living  matter on Earth, from whales  to bacteria and from oaks to  algae, could be regarded as  constituting a single living  entity... endowed with faculties and powers far beyond  those of its constituent parts."  In other words, the world is  a giant living creature which  sustains us in the way a body  sustains bacteria.  Lovelock gives this theoretical super-being the name  Gaia (pronounced like 'maya')  WESTWURLD  SOUND  C-Dpionegjt  <KITCHEN  GARtllVAL  1. Position spatula in empty  pie tin.  2.

Interesting. Here we have a  distinguished scientist - his  work is credited with revolutionizing the chemical  study of the atmosphere -  telling us in the last half of  the 20th Century that the  ancient Greeks were right  after all. The native Indians  too.  Lovelock used the techniques of gas chromoto-  graphy to measure and compare the atmospheres of Mars  and Earth and made the  startling discovery that while  Mars had been dead for  millions of years, something  had been manipulating the  Earth's atmosphere during all  that time, maintaining a  perfect temperature for life to  thrive.  If there had been no mysterious planetary regulating  mechanism, the Earth's atmosphere would have met the  same fate as that of Mars -  burned away by radiation from  the heating up of the sun.  "This led us," Lovelock  writes, "to the formulation of  the proposition that living  matter, the air, the oceans,  the land surface were parts of  a giant system which was  able to control temperature,  the composition of the air and  sea, the pH of the soil and so  on as to be optimum for  survival of the biosphere."  The formulation of the Gaia  hypothesis, as it is known,  has been called "one of the  hallmark events of our time,  a wedding of traditional  intuitive wisdom to contemporary scientific insight."  Certainly, if it turns out  the hypothesis is true, then  Western civilization is faced  with quite a shake-up in its  basic attitudes.  What it comes down to is  that if the Earth is a conscious  super-being, then the distance  between its immense self and  our very small individual  selves would be something on  the order of the distance  between a Greek god on  Olympus and a mere mortal.  It would mean that we are  part of the body of the largest  creature on Earth ��� Earth  itself.  Lovelock carries his idea  one step further. He suggests  that the human race, collected  together as a species, is  Gala's emerging nervous system and brain.  We are the planet becoming  aware of itself, awakening to  some kind of incredible  consciousness, greater than  anything any individual human could ever hope to know  Sounds all right to me.  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Kanata by Dennis Adair and Janet Rosenstock, Avon  Books, 1981  If Kanata is the story of Canada, Forever Amber is the  story of England. Book One of Adair and Rosenstock's  "Story of Canada" heralds an all time low in national sagas.  While their research bibliography is impressive, little of it  seeps its way into the pages of Kanata. What went wrong can  only be guessed. Did the authors feel that the violence and  sex formula should not be discarded even for a country's  story? Are they, in fact, Americans who have misread  Canadian sensitivities? Are they simply insensitive, period?  If you read McCullough's Thornbirds, you will be  horrified by this piece of utter tripe. At least Thornbirds  captured a little of the Aussie spirit and a lot of its setting.  Kanata is not only apropos of nothing, it is downright  insulting. Supposedly it lauds the Scots settler. Throwing in  the battle of Culloden. tartan shawls and oatmeal does not  disguise the soppy love yarn that purports to be the story of  the hard working Scottish who came to New France.  According to the authors, it was rape, kidnapping, lust  and killing that put Kanata on the map. This novel smears  the good people who came, not with a bag of tainted gold  from the bedrooms of the French court, nor inspired by  adulterous dreams, but with their children and their two  good hands to labour and make it a good place to be. It is  one thing to tell a bawdy tale, but to call it the story of a  country is akin to sacrilege. At any rate, a bawdy tale should  be better told than this hackneyed plot.  Beautiful young girl is married to brawling soldier and  lives with crabby mother-in-law. Fortunately, girl is in love  with handsome young man. The marriage is not  consummated. Girl wanders around for eight months in  virginal state, young man having departed with broken  heart. Battles, rapes, plunderings ensue. Names are  dropped: Madame de Pompadour, Bonnie Prince Charlie,  assorted Scottish Mc's and Mac's. Girl becomes rich and  sails to New France, vomiting and having a miscarriage on  the way. More rapes and violence. Girl meets boy. The end.  Please Avon Books, put a merciful end to this "series".  SALE  Mon. July 13 - Sat.

Everyone in the area owes it  to the fire department to give  them all the support possible -  they have already proven their  value many times over.

Egmont News  Splash!  b, Jon Van Ardell  Last Sunday afternoon a  1978 Ford Power Wagon shot  over the bank and plunged  into the bay between the boat  ramp and the government  wharf in Egmont. The owner  was up from California with  his family and it was his first  day in town. The vehicle was  still in 'park' with the emergency brake on when he  removed all of his belongings  from the almost totally-  submerged wagon. It took  quite an effort by P.H. Chevron to pull the vehicle back up  the cliff. No one was hurt but  damage to the wagon and the  owner's personal effects  was considerable.  1 must apologise for getting  the plane story wrong last  week. It was a Cessna 185  and not a Beaver aircraft.  Certainly no disrespect was  meant to anyone involved  and the fortunate thing is that  no one was injured in the  crash.  The Egmont News will  be taking a summer sabbatical for an indefinite length  of time. It has been fun reporting for the town and I wish  nothing but good news to  continue.  Gaston and Alice Roussy  visited town this week. Gaston  grew up on the Gaspe coast  and migrated west in 1941.  Gaston has never seen the  Pacific Ocean ami his quote  was "By gar, if I had seen (lis  coast in 1941, I'would never  have stopped in Grand  Forks!"

Tile Rt'drooff*  Trail  I have made mention of this  trail before and w ill continue to  do   so   as   it   seems   to   get  narrower each time you walk  Ihere. Adjacent property owners are gradually closing in on it  possibly in the hope that if they  do so the public trail will "go  away". And it will dojusl that if  we don't watch out for it. This  is happening all around us -  places of public accessibility  are disappearing right under  our noses and nobody seems lo  care.  New Koiriciitx  Ihere are many new and  inleresting residents moving  into the area and it is always  good to hear about them and lo  get to know them, as well as  wish them welcome. One such  family who has moved into  ihe Welcome Woods area is the  grandson and family of a well  known family who have lived  here for many years. Kelly  Foley with wife and baby are  actually not newcomers although Kelly has been away  from the area for several years  and has now come back  "home". He is a grandson of Ed  Edmunds of Redrooffs. His  mother's grandfather was a  well know n logger in the area as  far back as the 1900s. Kelly and  family have moved in from the  Squamish area. Nice to have  you back where you belong!  Sea Cavalcade 1981 is receiving help from many willing hands and one pair holding a paint brush  these days belongs to Kristin Schulberg.

Pender Opinion  ?e  Really Big Shoo  99  by Robl Peters  One of life's unexpected  pleasures happened to me  last week. It was a spur-of-the-  moment invitation to Welcome  Beach Hall to watch old  friends Ronnie Dunn and  John Hamilton perform in a  truly well done variety show.  The show just kept getting  better and better. But that's  what you expect from troupers, who,, without a doubt,  could do no wrong as", far as  this audience was concerned.  A part of the singing group  will be taking part in our  Really Big Shoo, "The Pender  Harbour Picnic and Fair" to  be held in Lions Park August  2nd. It's a Sunday. It sounds  great - tor all you people  who make your own wine - we  have a wine judging contest,  so get your old "kickapoo-joy  juice" brewing.  If your tastes run to roses,  flower arrangements, or  Dahlias, we have a flower  show for you. For the small  children - a wild flower  posie or basket arrangement.  Cooking contests include  breads, pies, decorated cakes  and a special for Pender ���  smoked salmon - also a pickle  division of dill pickles and  relishes. Come on and get into  the spirit of an old-time  fair.  The picnic will start off with  an outside church service at  11:30 a.m. Now that sounds  nice. During the day all types  of entertainment are planned,  square dancing, Punch and  Judy show, fair games,  children's races, etc.  At Lions Park there are at  least eight barbeques to use  as well as lots of open grass  and parking areas. Food will  be available - hamburgers,  hot dogs, corn-on-the-cob,  candy floss, ice cream, popcorn, and tea and coffee.  To finish the day off, a big  bonfire is planned with a  sing-a-long.

The Highwaymen, as (hey were  known, would pounce upon the unwary traveller and rob  himj,  We now have a more modern version of the  Highwayman. With, or without a very cheap license they  can peddle their wares from street to street, or the public  highways, without government inspections���scale or  otherwise.  We have known how very frequently these street  peddlars, Including home renovation dealers, have  conned the unwary and absconded with nothing but  profit and no guarantee of satisfaction.  While our laws generally are based on a 'Buyer Beware'  philosophy, and I am all for freedom of choice, as a local  businessman I must protest the easy, cheap licensing  that permits these people to operate on our streets and  highways.  We, who are in business locally (whether tradespeople  or merchants) must pay property taxes, be hooked into  sewer and water, and Hydro; employ locally domiciled  people and generally provide more in services than these  fly-by-night, fast buck artists.  !* fr ft ft- ��� m ��?> * M (He I*W | ��� *-*...���  I am aware that there are numerous people, residing  locally, who have their agency lines that they sell from  their homes, or door to door. I am not talking about them.  I speak of the itinerant, (here today, gone tomorrow)  vendors.  Soon now you will see trucks pouring in with fresh fruit  and vegetables, frequently non-fruit board merchandise  and thus not graded as to size or quality. If they were sold  for far less, which would be in line with their much lower  costs, one could say,���"Success to those who have found  a way to do it better,"���but they rarely do.

Take, for instance, the  matter of the surplus of black  Tigs out in the relief camp at  Thetis Lake that spring of  '38. Anyone who has ever  had even the slightest connection with the feeding of large  numbers of men isolated in  remote camps, knows how  difficult it is to get them to  eat  prunes or,  as  they  are  commonly called "C.P.R.  strawberries", and as for  dried black figs, one might as  well forget it. Served raw or  cooked they are avoided,  almost as if they had properties in their make up that  were in some way associated  with the Black Plague that  ravaged Europe in the 14th  Century, and nothing can  coerce the men into believing  that they are edible.  I don't know who was  responsible for the ordering of  supplies for that particular  camp, it certainly wasn't the  head cook, but amazingly with  every shipment of groceries  received there were several  boxes of these accursed black  figs. One would almost think  that the authorities, or the  powers that be that regulated  these matters, were trying to  provoke a crisis and the  fact that the culinary staff  would be involved, seeing that  they were responsible for the  disposal of these damned  dried fruits, was inevitable.  Perhaps I had better go  back to the beginning in order  to make sense of the events  that led to my short stay on the  Island and my subsequent  return to the Mainland.  I have no means of knowing,  never having been in a relief  camp before or since, if the  one at Thetis Lake was typical  of all those scattered throughout the Dominion during those  Depression years. Nor do I  know who had conceived t(ie  notion of "improving" the  shoreline of that beautiful Jake  by cutting trails around ft and,  for decorative purposes, constructing such atrocities as  rustic bridges and benches for  the weary to rest upon. That  the hundred or so men living  in the camp had to have something to do- and occupy their  time was logical I concede, but  from what I observed while  there, they might as well have  stayed in the bunkhouses  and read books or played  cards among themselves; that  way they would have done less  harm to the environment.  However, they were led out in  gangs of about twenty each  morning with usually an older  man in charge and the chopping and hacking continued in  a desultory fashion all dsy,  only interrupted by a lunch  hour break that could last  anywhere from 1 '/i to 2 hours,  depending on how long the  overseer felt he needed for his  after lunch nap.  I had been informed at the  Mission on Abbott Street  that, seeing I was to be the  experienced help the head  cook demanded, I would be  paid but I was advised to keep  the matter to myself as there  were only four men actually  on the payroll at the camp -  the Superintendent was Parsons (a son of the Inspector  of the RCMP), the clerk, a  chap by the name of Metcalfe,  Joe Kaglios, the chef, and  myself. All the rest received  20 cents per day for their  efforts. A free issue of clothing, including boots, was  available and last, but not  least, a half-pound tin of  tobacco and papers for rolling one's own cigarettes.  I found Joe a very fine  person to work with although,  not that it mattered, I never  was able to discover whether  he was a Greek, Armenian,  Serbian or possibly a Bulgarian. He was a short, roly-  poly man in his forties and,  while he didn't appear to ever  get overly excited or disturbed about anything pertaining to what went on in the  kitchen, he was in a continual  bath of perspiration; it ran off  him in rivulets and he was for  ever changing the linen  napkin that he wore around  his neck.  Our work was not particularly arduous as we had all  kinds of help with the more  menial tasks. The assignment  of men for kitchen duties  resembled the K.P. of military  life and, in view of the fact  that although most of them  hadn't the foggiest notion of  what it was all about, they  accepted it cheerfully as working the cookhouse always has  fringe benefits in the way of  extra rations and access to  "goodies" that are not dispensed across the steam  table.  I don't know who first came  up with the brilliant suggestion of what we should or  could do with all these boxes  of figs that were cluttering up  the storeroom. It certainly  wasn't Joe, the chief cook,  nor could I claim credit for  the original idea. I think it  was Mutlow, the^ chap who  was acting as temporary  butcher and mutilating the  sides of beef and pork that  arrived on a weekly basis at  the camp. He had an engaging  personality and everyone liked  him, but he was definitely  "harum-scarum" and made  no secret of the fact that he  had only one goal in life and  that was to get drunk as often  as the opportunity presented  itself and to stay drunk as  long as possible. Anyway his  idea was that, seeing we had  all the ingredients necessary,  the fruit, the sugar and the  wooden tubs to hold the brew,  we should lose no time in  getting a batch of wine  started. The sooner we commenced, the shorter the time  we would have to wait till the  fermentation was completed  and we would have not only an  important thing lacking in our  daily diet, but the elixir that  made life really worth living.  I can't say that poor old Joe  was too enthusiastic about  getting involved in this project, but I certainly was and  threw what little weight I  carried in backing up the  butcher's suggestion. After  all, I reasoned, the men won't  eat the figs, it would be  criminal in these hard times  to throw them away and,  as long as we kept the secret  to ourselves, what harm was  there provided it was used  judiciously. What was wrong  in having a little wine to wash  down our meals and lighten  the cares of the day?  Little did any of us have  any anticipation at the time of  the dire consequences attendant upon this little experiment in the fermentation of  the fig I  Pitch-in and  Keep  Canada  Beautiful  for tourists and residents.

In his adult years he became  very interested in early childhood education. He travelled  lo Switzerland to visit Johann  Pestalozzi and on his return,  after some time spent in active  service in the Napoleonic Wars,  he began devoting more lime to  education and in 1837 he went  to Bad Blankenburg and opened the first kindergarten.  The word kindergarten means  the garden of children. It was  an educational situation, rather  than a formal classroom type of  school. Children were encouraged to play together or singly,  and the environment was such  that through their play they  could not avoid learning.  All of these early education  theorists stressed Ihe importance of exercise and activity.  Children, they argued, should  develop healthy, robust bodies.  Education was a total involvement, not cerebral training.  Play would provide supreme  motivation, cooperation and  competition.  They viewed children as  growing entities who should be  brought up in unity with all  nature - hence the concept of  the garden where the child is  one of many growing things, all  experiencing together and  gaining understanding through  observation and participation  of various life cycles and the  interactions of all living things.  There were no formal lessons, but the teachers were  always ready to answer ques  tions, to suggest activities, to  call a group together to view  some phenomenon of nature.  Curiosity and the ensuing  questions were part and parcel  of the daily sessions.  We must remember that  these were days before schools  were deluged with tons and  tons of paper, print, books,  pamphlets and long before  duplicating machines, copiers,  colouring books, cheap crayons, pencils and ball point  pens.  Slates, slate pencils and  sponges were provided to  children who wanted to letter  or draw. School was not so  "bookish" and reading skills  were not "scientifically'' or  systematically taught. The  alphabet was the key lo reading, and the children spelled  out words and mastered reading in whatever language was  their mother tongue. Graded  vocabularies were unknown.  Yet they seemed to forge ahead  under their own desires to  learn.  In North America we are not  utilizing play as a system of  teaching our children to the  degree we might. We are very  suspicious of teachers who "let  the children play too much",  asking ourselves if that is what  we pay teachers to do!  In our hearts we are victims  of the puritan "work elhic",  and we impose this concept on  our very little ones. It is  interesting how the children  gradually abandon their diligence and willingness to strive  for mastery, until the early  adolescents actually are known  to deride any of their peers who  work very hard to succeed in  school,  and  many  of them  Emergency services  by Robl Peters  Would you know what to do  if you saw an aircraft in distress or a boat on fire or in  trouble? I didn't until a few  days ago. 1 had a vague idea,  but not a definite place and  number to call.  Our local Chamber of  Commerce held a meeting in  June for the emergency  services of the Sunshine  Coast. The purpose of the  meeting was to introduce the  different emergency services  available and establish a  liaison between them.

Any standard or learned  behaviour which is not natural  to children will be abandoned  as soon as the child learns that  he can successfully defy authority. We used to struggle to  make our high school students  conform to very strict dress  codes, yet a visit to the  university at the time was an  eye-opener in informal if not  bizarre clothing. The standard  we set was not accepted by the  young people. Finally teachers  and parents gave up the  struggle.  Can it be that if we let the  little ones play and learn in less  formal situations with no stress  and no set curricula they would  gradually develop a thirst for  learning that they might try to  quench in their.early teen  years? If industry is stressed  prematurely and formal lessons  begun too early, are we not  asking for the teen-age rebellion against these things? We  should be setting up experimental schools and encouraging parents to enroll their  little ones in more natural and  less demanding primary classes.

Where else would you  hear that line but at the  Roberts Creek Daze pet show?  It typifies the whole mood and  attitude of the Daze, funky  and fun.  The Higgledy Piggledy  Parade was short but represented all facets of the community, from the Roberts  Creek Legion colour guard and  Miss Roberts Creek Lions to  my kids in "my grandmother's wedding dress"  push, pull, or dragging all  kinds of critters in outlandish garb.  The Ladies Softball Team  proudly waved its trophy from  the 10 to 3 win over the Beachcombers on Friday night from  atop the fire engines and of  course Mr. Roberts Creek was  regal on his kitchen chair.  Even the retiring Mr. Roberts  Creek made it, gray and feeble  though he was from a strenuous year of sexual harassment  and adoration.  The rest of Saturday was  exceedingly mellow. Once  again the sun came through  and made the parking lot  down by the wharf a perfect  setting for the crafts and food  booths. With the enticing  smell of Indian curry mingling with barbecued Robbie  burgers it was pleasant indeed to sit on the beach basking in the warmth watching  the canoe races across the  mouth of the Creek to the  accompaniment of the many  talented Roberts Creek musicians gathered in a jam-  session.  The Daze had to be scaled  down this year because of a  shortage of time and personnel to organize it but it lost  none of the essential elements.

Its success can  be partially gauged by the  number of people who came,  most of them familiar faces  with some tie to Roberts  Creek.  Close Match  It was like a duel, the final  competition in the Mr. Roberts Creek contest, but the  two contestants tied for the  title made a good show of it,  to the delight and hilarity of  the audience. It was a tough  decision for the judges who  had to resort to a "touch and  feel" examination but eventually it was the crowd who  made the choice, carried away  by the melodic prowess of  Dan Tohill on his mouth-  organ.  It was the climax of a good  show of silliness and sportsmanship. All the contestants  gave it their best shot but  there was no evidence of the  petty rivalry and backstabbing  so often found backstage in  such beauty pageants, just a  sense of fun and camaraderie.  I'm afraid I can't do justice  to a description of the event. I  was backstage myself "get-  ging to know the contestants." Besides, you just had  to be there.  There are many who feel  Britt Varcoe was the obvious  choice for the position, that  it should not have gone to  "an outsider." But the decision, though made "in the  heat of the moment", was largely by the force of the crowd,  so there can be no real complaint.  Actually, all six contestants  were winners: Dapper Dan  Tohill, Mr. Henderson  Beach, Britt Varcoe, golden-  voiced Maurice Moses, Allan  Crane, Mr. Lockyer Road,  Kevin Shepherd, and Mr.  Softball, Jim Dawson. They  proved they had the jam and  made it a good evening for  everyone.  d  Sunshine  Interiors  Home Decorating Centre  Need help with problem windows?

The mood of the high  drama ol the theatre is  created ihrou^h these simple  directions.  Vet. the work thai goes Into  ihe creation of the art form  known as live theatre is a vasl  network of talent and effort,  Like the impressive iceberg,  the power of the lip that is  showing   comes    from    its  largely hidden presence.  The Suncoast Players, Ihe  coast's newest dramatic  group, encompassing talent  from all corners of our Sunshine Coast, is launched on a  new venture only six months  .d'ter its highly successful  "Arsenic and Old Lace" pre-  -.dilation in January.  This time, Ihe enthusiastic  Players are rehearsing five  days a week to prepare for the  upcoming Sunshine Coast  Arts Festival August 4-15.  1 hey will present two one-act  plays. John Mortimer's, The  Lunch Hour, ' and Anton  Chekhov's, The Bear, and, for  ihe occasion; they are building  a revolving stage which will  become an important asset to  the, theatre group in future  .productions.  A special bonus in these  productions is the talent being  donated by Vancouver actor-  director Bill Murdoch. An  experienced director who has  takeji to heart the advice that  ���Jfte only.way to learn this  .tmswss is;ro dp it", Murdoch  is completing work, on a  Master's Degree in Directing  from UBC, while employed  at Capilano College in North  Vancouver, teaching backstage design.  While working towards his  Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts  at the University of Victoria,  Murdoch iwas involved in  productions at Langham Court  Theatre and later spent  three years touring across  Canada-'Wrth Compaay One-  performing original theatre  productions.  Having worked as a professional actor in TV commercials and feature films, Mur  doch enjoys the stimulation of  community theatre groups,  and attributes the development of his career to "amateur companies, where 1 got  my start".  He has performed with  theatre groups in Vernon,  Kamloops, North Vancouver,  Calgary and Victoria, and has  been in Vancouver productions at Metro Theatre, City  Stage and The Playhouse. For  his acting work in an industrial  film by oil producers in  Alberta, he was awarded for  "Ihe best performance by an  actor in the role of a narrator"  in an Alberta film maker's  competition.  Murdoch has words of  praise for the Suncoast Players, "an incredibly well-  organized and talented group  of people" and is convinced  the production and performances of the upcoming plays  will be of professional calibre.  Although he has directed  "The Lunch Hour" before at  UBC, Murdoch finds that  actors Nest Lewis, Pat Murphy and Val Tomkies wiH  change the play because they  will lend their unique touches  to it.  "The lines read differently  with different actors playing  the roles."  Murdoch feels the two  one-act plays will blend in well  with the theme of this year's  Arts Festival "The Magic of  Masks".  "To quote John Mortimer:  Telling the truth is often a  great concealment; we are  given away by what we  pretend to be.  "In The Lunch Hour, a  comic rendezvous between a  clothing firm executive and a  secretary who meet in a north  London rooming house for a  iunchtime fling, the sexual  adventure never materializes  because both seem to prefer  the romance they imagine  rather than the reality of an  affair.^      j*  .'"They bo'tli'flideBehind the'  masks of the romantic fantasies they have created about  each other. In the end. the  mask the man has created to  cover  his  deception   defeats  him. and she hides behind his  story to avoid the situation.  "The manageress, played  by Val Tomkies, can be involved in the situation as long as  they go on pretending they arc  meeting for other reasons  than the real sexual motive.  "In The Bear, the widow  hides behind her mask of  mourning, which is a romantic, idealized vision of herself as a martyr. Her world  Is intruded upon by the bear,  an eathy landowner who  invades her Victorian respectability and dispassionateness.  Although he hides behind the  mask of hating women, they  find that underneath they are  attracted to each other and in  the end their masks fall away  and they come together on a  basic man-woman level.  "The two plays are a good  contrast to each other. The  Lunch Hour is a cold winter  play and the emptiness df city-  bred sexuality based on lies is  reflected in the drab, depressing set.  "The Bear is a summer  play, full of the vitality of the  country, where the man and  woman are struggling with  their desires and attempt to  deny their feelings, which  surface in the end."  In their second week of  rehearsals. The Lunch Hour  lead actors listen to Murdoch,  learning stage directions,  lines, cues and character  expressions.  Realtor Pat Murphy, wearing a large overcoat, becomes  the inept, anxious, would-be  lecher and Nest Lewis, former  Home Economics teacher who  shares tasty recipes in The  Coast News every week,  becomes the shy, nervous  secretary whose romantic visions of an affair are rapidly-  disappearing under the onslaught of the seedy surround:,  ings and the talkative landlady.  The rehearsals are serious  work and take long hours,  and there is the travelling time  home afterward from Sechelt  Elementary School to Gibsons.  Middlepoint and Halfmoon  Bay.  Bill Murdoch is present  every evening, while squeezing in other professional  commitments in Vancouver.  The Bear, with actors Richard  Tomkies and Gordon and  Judith Wilson, rehearses alternate evenings.  Many hours are being put in  by other dedicated amateur  theatre lovers up and down  the coast.  Marshall Rae of Madeira  ���'ark is building the revolving  stage, Joan Rae will manage  ticket sales. Joe Harrison of  Pender Harbour is designing  both sets; Glen Skidmore will  do lighting; Ellen Ryan is in  charge of costuming with the  help of Elizabeth Wilson and  Margaret Porter.

Ronnie Dunn is in charge of  makeup, Susan Brookes is  props manager, and in addition there are numerous  behind-the-scenes helpers  who make the Suncoast  Players the vital group that it  is.  They will add an important  dimension to the second  annual Arts Festival celebrations with their six performances throughout August  b-15. Acting is a mask and live  theatre is an enjoyable expression of that other world  (hat exists in our minds,  imaginations and fantasies.

"For All Your Building Needs"  loll FlH p  From Vancwrei SWIShine Gibsons  coast      888-8141  Hwy.,  Gibsons  Coast News, July 14, 1981  15  Editor:  Recently we received a call  from an irate Sunshine Coast  resident complaining of the  atrocious condition of our  transmission line rights-of-way  at Stewart Road. The caller  explained that he frequently  walks the area and was appalled at the amount of garbage  strewn about. He felt that it was  B.C. Hydro's responsibility  and obligation to maintain a  clean right-of-way.  I visited the site on July 3.  I98I. and saw garbage of every  description   scattered   about.  This shows the total disrespect  a few people have for other  people's property, be it Hydro  or private.  Over the past few years we  have removed garbage, old cars  and junk of every description.  We have posted signs prohibiting dumping of the garbage  and have personally phoned  individuals asking them to  remove old cars and other  debris with no results.  We haven't said too much to  anyone concerning this, bul  have gone on our way cleaning  up after them, thinking someday these people would smarten up.  We now have reached a point  of handing over to the authorities all evidence wc find at these  sites and I hope they get better  results in their discussions than  we did.  Therefore, if these individuals feel they have a complaint about garbage dumping  facilities in the Gibsons area,  please,   contact   the   proper  authorities with their concerns.  Don't leave their problems with  us because its everyone's  dollars we're using to clean up  the mess.  Thank you for you co-operation in this matter.  Yours truly  A.F. Polok  Acting District Manager  B.C. Hydro and  Power Authority  &  Water threatened  Seaside scavengers  Editor:  We are living in our own  home at Roberts Creek and  have had no water for 10  months.  We have had our well  polluted and our water line,  in the process of legalization,  vandalized; a water line that  cost a lot of money and effort  to install.  Water rights have been  denied for 10 months. Water  is essential to life.  That the family of someone  who fought for this country  in the R.A.F. and worked for  20 years as a teacher In the  area should not only be denied  water rights, but be barred  from access to nearby water,  is unreal.  This when there is a small  child involved. Good ol' B.C.  Maureen Paquette,  Roberts Creek, B.C.  Editor  I too share Mr. Vince Bra-  cewell's concern over people  removing things from our Provincial Parks.  I also went to the Skookum-  chuck on July 1st, but not to  see the magnificient tidal performance. I went instead to  see the "Salty golden colored  pods of Bladder Wack" -  but much to my dismay aoaae-  one had eaten them!! So again  Mr. Bracewell I agree with  you, we must stop the children  from collecting sea shells and  star ftshl "Hell" the next  thing you know the little buggers will be collecting butterflies and tadpoles and all other  kinds of neat things that kids  do in the summertime.

Note: We have received  a copy of the following letter,  addressed to:  Province of British Columbia,  Ministry of Environment,  Victoria, B.C. V8V1X5  Dear Sirs:  Re application Pebble  Holdings Ltd.  Under "Legals" in the June  30, 1981 "The Press", of  Sechelt, B.C., there is an  application for a permit under  Pollution Control Act (Effluent), made by Pebble Holdings Ltd., of P.O. Box 1219,  Sechelt, B.C.  The property Is westerly  10 acres of D.L. 6087 G.P.I.  We, the property owners  close to this proposed subdivision, object for the following reasons:  1) We have one of the few  areas left, on the Sunshine  Coast, where you can still dig  clams and eat oysters that are  not in polluted waters.  2) We now swim in non-  polluted waters.  3) This area is zoned one half  acre minimum-allowing approximately two acres for  roads, this 10 acre area will  only have space for a maximum 16 lots.  4) The lots that haven't sufficient soil for a regular septic  tank can still have a type of  treatment that does not have  to end up in Malaspina Straits.  Why is this application for 30  lot subdivision when applicant  knows that this is zoned for  one half acre .minimum?  All signers of this objection  have been successful in putting in treatments that was  kept on the land-why should a  developer be allowed to pollute when, at very little additional cost, he can offer a non-  polluting solution.  It states at the end of the  application, "This application, dated on May 28, 1981,  was posted on the ground in  accordance with the Pollution  Control Regulations. D.H.  Shuttleworth & Associates  Ltd."  This is to inform you that  we have been down the new  road on D.L. 6087 many times  before, and once since the  application was published,  and there is no sign of a notice  being posted. We also walked  along the waterfront, and saw  no posting there.  No way should this application be granted as it is only  zoned for half acre lots and the  residents of the area are  opposed. Prospective buyers  are willing to pay for the lots  Editor:  We would like to express our  gratitude for your generous  donation of advertising and  publicity about the Gibsons  RCMP Bicycle Rodeo which  was held on Sunday, July S,  1981.

Both Secret Cove  and the Pender Harbour area,  which are both within a few  miles of us, are polluted.  Subject property is very like  ours and has ample area and  soil to provide for an on-  sight disposal system, or a  single, on-sight system, when  lots are a minimum of one half  acre.  It comes to this: Who should  be considered, the people that  live in the area, and want to  keep pollution down, or the  developer, who is only interested in makng as much money  as he can, then leaving the  problems to the people of the  area?

We live and work in  Vancouver and must rely on  the effort of the community  here to help us locate Sky. The  dog is quite large, dark grey  in colour and looks like a bear.  He is quite shy and friendly.  We believe the only way to  find him is with the help of  everyone here looking for  him. A special thanks to Mrs.  Smith and this newspaper for  their co-operation.

On the 2nd: A Port Coquitlam  man drove his car over  Gospel Rock alter fairing to  negotiate the corner. Trees  60 feet below stopped the car  from going into the water.  There is. no report of injuries  ui Ihe driver.  On the 3rd: Thieves stole a  hammer, a leather nailing  pouch, a knife and a measuring tape from a car parked on  Point Road.  On the 5th: Police report the  theft ol an orange 71 Olds  from Granthams Landing.  Che car was subsequently  found in the gravel pit near  the Sunshine Coast Trailer  Park the day it was reported  missing, there was no visible  damage done lo the car.  Another car was stolen from  Hillcrcsl Road the same day,  a '72 Ford Torino taken near  the residence of the jpwner.  Again ihere was no indication  of any damage. It appears the  car was stolen for the purpose  of joy riding.  On the 7th: There was a break  and entry of a residence on  Judith Road. Thieves gained  entry through the window and  stole $60 in cash.  A 10' fibreglass dinghy  was reported lost. It is white  with a brown trim and a brown  motor. It was lost in the  Granthams Landing area.  On the 8th: At 22:00 hours on  a mountain access gravel road  in the Reed and Henry Road  area, local man Michael  McKinnon was pinned under  his truck when it slid on top  of him when he was attempting to fix it after it had become  stuck. The truck slid 150 feet  into a gulley. McKinnon was  taken to St. Mary's with minor  injuries. Police rescued the  truck: the ambulance crew  and the Tire department  responded to the call.  Police are still receiving  numerous reports of bears  being sighted and caution  the public to avoid confrontation vtith the animals.  On the 9th! During the night  vandals climbed the roof of  Gibsons Elementary School,  where they caused hundreds  of dollars of damage by  kicking in roof'vents and  smashing in a skylight. Police  are still investigating the  incident. It appears that the  vandals gained access to the  roof by the carport area.  SECHELT.  On the 3rd: A green van was  stolen from Cowrie Street  and recovered shortly after the  theft, when it was still being  driven by the thief. Charges  will be laid against both the  thief and theownerof the van,  who is being charged with  leaving his vehicle unsecured.  Police advise that in view of  the recent rash of vehicle  thefts, owners of unsecured  vehicles reported stolen will  be charged with having an  unsecured vehicle. An unsecured vehicle is defined as  being any vehicle with keys  which have been left either  in or out of the ignition.  Stolen cars are rarely hotwired any more. Sechelt  detachment actually hasn't  received one report of hot  wiring in the last five years.  All theft reports have been  because keys were left in a  vehicle.  A canvas type boat canopy  was found on Highway 101  and can be claimed by the  owner.  On the 4th: $650 worth of  fishing equipment was stolen  from a boat tied for just a  few minutes by its owner  at the Madeira Marina dock.  Also taken was a depth  sounder.  There were a few complaints of noise and firecrackers during the American  celebrations of the Fourth of  July in Pender Harbour.  On the 5th: A Ford Bronco  rolled into the ocean by the  Government Wharf in Egmont  as the tide was coming in.  The owner of the Bronco feels  that his brakes may have  failed.  A 1980 Camaro was stolen  from the Pender Harbour  Gulf Station and was later  recovered totally destroyed  and set aflame on a road near  the power line.  On the 9th: A man left his  toolbox on Highway 101 near  the Sunshine Coast Golf  Course after fixing his car.  When he came back later to  retrieve it, it was gone. If  found, please contact Sechelt  RCMP.  Police recommend that anyone witnessing a possible  hit-and-run should contact  their local RCMP if it appears  that the owner of a vehicle is  not making any attempt to  contact or locate the owner of  the other car involved. Such  information should consist  of both vehicles' licence  numbers whenever possible.  In general, reports of speeding boats on Ruby Lake continue, although they are  restricted by the Shipping  Act to safe speeds.  There are also numerous  reports of noisy beach parties  and of glass breaking, reports  of children driving their dirt  bikes on the highway and  public roads without the  benefit of licences and insurance. Parents of these youngsters should be aware that  they are liable for any breach  of the law by their youngsters.  Finally, it is required by law  to report any lost or found  boats to the Receiver of  Wrecks in Victoria, or to the  RCMP.  m  Neighbourhood  watch  The neighbourhood watch  program is progressing well.  It had a successful bicycle  rodeo on July 5th. The neighbourhood watch would now  like your co-operation and  assistance when they come  around to your homes for  operation identification. It is  planning to cover the following areas for the week of  July 13-17.  O'Shea Road, Abbs Road,  Winn Road, School Road,  Sargent Road, South Fletcher  Road, Stewart Road, Charman  Road, Gower Point Road,  Aldersprings Road, Prowose  Road.

A petition protesting the commercial mobile stands was presented to  Neighbourhood Pub  Michael Ryan from Fjord Design in Sechelt has been instructed  by council to place an advertisement stating his intentions to  apply for a Type' D' liquor license for a Neighbourhood Pub in the  village.  Council discussed the implications of this matter at the  Wednesday night council meeting. The 65 seat neighbourhood  pub proposition, it was decided, would have to be the decision of  the village residents and the matter is to go to Public Hearing.  Sechelt Council Comprises  Section 4 of By-law 222 that had met with considerable  opposition at the June 10 Public Hearing was read for the third  time at the Sechelt council meeting last Wednesday.  The by-law dealt with the reduction of off-street parking spaces  in the village from the current size of 10 feet by 20 feet to VA by 18  feet.  Sechelt villagers attending, strongly opposed this reduction.  Gibsons Council news  Sewers for Bluff discussed  The council has since opted to go with the Department of  Highways recommendation of reducing the sizes to 9 feet by 19  feet.  One of the arguments against reduction was that many of the  pick-up trucks and recreational vehicles would not fit in the  smaller parking spaces.  Application Turndown  , In the last few months, Sechelt village council has received two  petitions regarding the re-zoning of Block B, Block 11 D.L. 304  (North side of Cowrie Street) from residential to commercial.  One petition was for the re-zoning and one against. The matter  was referred to the planner for the Village of Sechelt, John  Northey. His recommendation to council was received at last  week's council meeting. Northey recommended that the  application for re-zoning by Peter Gordon and Northest  Communications, (Ian Hunter) be turned down at this time.  Council accepted the planner's recommendation.  the SCRD last week.  - Fran Bourassa photo  Petition from Davis Bay  Mobile markets condemned  The regional board received a petition from Davis Bay residents  and businessmen protesting the commercial enterprises selling  their assorted food products on the beach near the government  wharf.  The petition was signed by 23 persons 'most immediately  affected' from both the residential and commercially zoned areas  along Highway 101.  The covering letter by the bearer of the petition, E.A. Cuylits  repeated some of the area residents' concerns:  The congestion of cars around the mobile merchants causing a  potential traffic hazard; that the enterprises were contravening the  zoning by-law; that the impact of these was direct competition to  the established enterprises which pay considerable taxes; that the  mobile units were unsightly.  The petition also states that these commercial enterprises are  being licensed by the Government Agent in Sechelt.  The SCRD has been asked to take the matter in hand to insure  that the issuing of this type of licence be brought under their direct  or indirect control.  "This is a distressing anomaly", states the petition, "The SCRD  was created to ensure the orderly development of the Sunshine  Coast- Now we find that another arm of government can issue a  commercial licence which allows people lo ply their trade  anywhere, without regard for the zoning regulations, we, the  residents, have to live by."  The SCRD made a motion in this regard to send a copy of the  petition to the Government Agent. They will also refer the matter  to the Department of Highways and ask them to post a sign  prohibiting the activities of the mobile commercial enterprises.  The RCMP will also be notified of the petition. The board  believes, as the petition states, that these activities do contravene  the zoning by-law and is fast becoming a traffic hazard.  Sewer Plan for Bluff  The fate of Gibsons bluff sewer project is still undecided,  council informed Bob Maxwell of Gibsons, who questioned the  possible financing of the capital works program.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard told Maxwell that despite the  expected high costs of installing sewers in the rocky bluff area, a  Sublic referendum in 1972 voted that all village residents should  ave sewer service. Gibsons residents are taxed $110 annually to  pay for the debt of the existing sewer program and additional  funds would have to be borrowed to finance the expensive bluff  project.  Goddard told Maxwell that a specified area charge for bluff  residents would be instituted if government grant money will not  be forthcoming to help finance the bluff sewers.  Final figures on the bluff sewer project are not available, as  government grants towards the project have not been finalized,  Municipal Administrator Jack Copland told the Coast News.  Sign By-Law Receives Final Approval  Gibsons Sign By-Law No. 399 received final approval in a  special meeting of council July 8 and has been sent to Victoria for  ratification. The sign by-law became the subject of controversy  when Mitten Realty in lower Gibsons was not allowed to erect  a $5,000 lighted sign because it contravened the sign regulations  for the lower village area.  Other lower Gibsons businesses have awaited the passing of the  by-law with interest, since the new by-law sets sign standards that  will co-ordinate the entire downtown area according to the  proposed plan for the expected downtown revitalization  program.  Council received a letter from Kevin Ryan Architectural  Services accepting to undertake the production of a Design  Handbook which will specify the architectural theme for the lower  village area. The printing of the design study will be paid by  Gibsons planning budget, which this year comes to $8,000. Two-  thirds of planning expenses are reimbursed by the provincial  government. Municipal Administrator Jack Copland told the  Coast News,  This year's planning budget will also cover a portion of the cost  of hiring planner Rob Buchan to co-ordinate a comprehensive  planning study of all of Gibsons. The $5,000 cost of Ryan's design  study for the lower downtown area is covered by a provincial  Downtown Revitalization grant.  ���r��'iw.j)Jlla����,a��  I  THE ONLY WAY TO GO  UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT  AGNES LABONTE  TOURS ��� TICKETS ��� CHARTERS ��� INSURANCE  Mon. - Sat. 9:30 - 5:00  886-2522  Suite #104  R.R. #2  Gibsons, B.C.

What's so great about bird-  ing, anyway?  Did you ever wonder why  all those crazies go tromping  around the marshes, slippy  slide on muddy forest trails,  get eaten by mosquitoes in  swamps, risk snake bites  while crawling up rocks, or  get seasick on ocean cruises?  What motivates a person to  spend so much time chasing  after an elusive little bird  heard calling in the brambles?  Out of many reasons for  going birding, these are what  come first to my mind. Birding  takes me outdoors to get some  exercise, which feels good.  Hiking does that too, but birding adds the excitement of the  hunt-seeking something elusive, which may or may not be  found. Looking for birds adds  purpose to the common hike,  besides just "getting somewhere". I used .to hike to  reach a destination. Now the  destination is secondary, and  what I see along the way takes  precedence.  Birding can be done anywhere at any time of year. The  quest takes the birder to some  of the most beautiful out of  the way places. At the same  time, birding can be just as  fascinating looking out the  living room window. Birding  can be done in solitude or in  groups. People of all ages can  participate and enjoy.

Aldo  Leopold in A Sand Country  Almanac, discusses the concept of "trophy" as a way in  which we prove to ourselves  and others that we have done  well.  In primitive societies "trophy" means hunting an eagle  as demonstration of the man's  abilities, and then making a  headdress out of the feathers.  "Trophy" means the animal  with the biggest horns or the  largest fish, often mounted on  the sportsman's wall as  lasting evidence of his or her  prowess.  With the advent of the leisure society and the decreasing need for demonstrating  prowess by hunting, man's  continuing need for self-  esteem has branched into cups  and plaques for the winners of  sports events, for the best cow  or apple pie at the fair, or the  best flower arrangement. Also  collections of various types are  a kind of trophy similar to  hunting: shells, rocks,  stamps, butterflies, postcards. You name it, someone  collects it. To have one of  every kind in the world is the  ultimate trophy for the collector.  The birder gets his or her  sense of satisfaction from collecting without collecting.  The Life List and maybe a  set of photographs suffice as  a lasting trophy of his or her  Postal strike  Cheque pick-up  It is hard to believe that  this column is now one year  old I It was the first week in  July 196X1 that I made a  proposal to the readers of the  Coast News, to keep them  posted on the location and  availability of seafood, both  for the housewife and for  those who wish to dine out.  The title of the column is  self-explanatory. The nom-de-  plume, Chak-Chak, is the  Coastal Indians' name for the  bald eagle, whose habit is  to perch in a lofty tree near the  seashore where he can observe the presence of his next  meal.  At the head of the column  is seen the West Coast  Indian stylized form depicting  Chak-Chak in flight. In his  talons he clutches Gal-Quith  the codfish who was regarded  as the symbol of a bountiful  supply of seafood by the  native people of Bella Bella.  This should serve to answer  the many questions I have  received in regard to the  origin of this column's masthead.  Now, for the benefit of those  people who have a French  ethnic background! As Tuesday, July 14th, is Bastille  Day, I thought the following  recipe would provide a novel  "bonne Douche" for your  dinnerparty.  This is "Poisson Cru"  from the French influenced  culinary capital of Polynesia,  Tahiti. The term 'poisson cru'  literally means raw fish. This  recipe is similar to the recipe  for Latin American type  "ceviche" that I gave you in  the May 19th issue this  spring. This one is milder as  it does not have the bite of  hot chillies.  birding abilities. And just as  with hunting, the thrill of the  hunt is there, getting outdoors  and seeking the sometimes  scarce quarry. The rarities become special events, but only  appreciated if the commonalities are well known. Seeing a  peregrine falcon for the first  time and being able to identify  it is to the birder what shooting a four point buck is to  the hunter. The suspense and  feeling of exhilaration are  there, and the tick mark on the  list is not going to upset the  balance of nature.

Ministry of Human Resources cheques for June were all  mailed several days before the  start of the current postal  strike. There will be few, if any,  situations where clients have  not received their cheques.  Anyone who has not received a Ministry of Human  Resources cheque should contact the local office. Arrangements can be made for a  duplicate cheque issue in cases  of hardship.  If the postal strike continues,  the Ministry will make arrangements for July cheques to be  distributed through Human  Resources district Offices.  Arrangements for picking up of  cheques at Ministry offices will  be announced in the local news  media.  These cheques will include  Gain Income Assistance payments, Gain for Seniors, payment to foster parents, group  homes and day care operators,  as well as Safer cheques.

From the Fairway  by Ernie Home  The Ladies Club Championship Tournament was held last  July 7th, 8th and 9th. After  54 holes, Connie Grant retained her championship form  to remain Club Champion for  another year. Her 3-day total  of 251 for the tournament  held off the determined bid  of Virginia Douglas, who shot  a steady 257 for second place.  Third place went to Doreen  Mathews with a gross score of  270. Low net for the tournament was taken by Pat  Vaughn shooting 196.  The first day of the tournament was also used to  qualify for the forthcoming  Sea Cavalcade two day event.  The ladies who managed to  qualify were Connie Grant,  Virginia Douglas, Dodie  Grant, Phil Hendy, Eileen  Evans, Dot Utterback. Lil  Fraser and Doreen Gregory  qualified as spares.  The nine-hole players competed in a Tombstone Tournament. In this game, each  player is allowed to use par  strokes plus half their handicap. After the allowable  strokes are used the player  is eliminated. The player who  can go the farthest around the  course in the allowable strokes  is the winner. In this case  the winner was Edna Fisher,  followed by Lila Chambers.  Much planning and course  grooming is being planned  for the forthcoming N.H.A.  tournament to be held August  12th and 13th. Many entries  will be here from all over the  lower mainland to compete in  this province-wide event.  The garage sale is fast  approaching. The club still  requires any spare goods you  may have been storing around  the shed and basement. If  you have any such items you  would like to donate, please  contact Helen Milburn or  Stan Patterson. Remember  the date - July 25th, Roberts  Creek Hall.  Greig Grant and his Sea  Cavalcade tournament committee are making steady  progress in the planning of  this very important event for  August 1st and 2nd. The  many details that each section  of the club are responsible for  are gradually falling into  place.  Monday Twilight golfers  had an entry of 28 to play in a  two-person team, using alternate shots and counting putts.  Isobel Cowley and Bud Montgomery recorded a score of  33 'A for first place. The team  of Olive Shaw ans Ed Pinker-  ton used 18 putts to win the  putting section of the game.  Wednesday Twilight played  a straight low gross, low net  tournament. Dean Warnes low  gross 35 was the best for the  evening. The 27Vi score by  Cliff Lindsey took low net,  Gordy Scott's 13 putts for nine  holes was the winner in the  putting contest.  Thursday morning old timers again had a large turnout. The event chosen for the  day's play was an irons only  contest. The four man team  of Alec Warner, Ole Johan-  sen, Al Boyes and Bill Lawrence turned in a low score of  60 to capture first place.  Tuesday July 15th the  Powell River ladies will be at  Sunshine Coast Golf Club for  their inter-club tournament.  Fastball  tournament  The RCMP is hosting their  second annual Fastball Tournament in Sechelt on the 18th  and the 19th in Hackett Park  this July.

The  "Herring Gal", Bill Cameron's herring boat, was accused of fishing within the immediate area twenty-four  hours after salmon fingerlings  were let loose in Porpoise  Bay. According' to Mrs.  Muriel Cameron's records it  was ten days after the finger-  lings were let loose.  The Fisheries Officer,  Mr. Randy Tamcock, concurred with Mrs. Cameron,  that the amount of grilse  caught would be minimal  - grilse' are at the top of the  net and easily let go, which  ���dras verified because the same  complaint,y/ts lajd last year,  and '; -the ..'fisheries    office  protect the seals and wildlife. Mr. Doug Fielding made  the comment "I take it Mrs.  Cameron does't belong to  "Greenpeace". "No! Definitely not", emphasized Mrs.  Cameron.  Freight rates and transportation costs came under  discussion. As usual Pender  Harbour has a high rate, more  than for shipping to the interior. We pay for time-and-a  half, as trucks return to depot  empty. Ab Haddock and Peter  Grabenhof will meet with  a traffic co-ordinator to try  to come up with a cheaper  service for local residents.  Roy Mansfield, Membership Chairman, now has cards  and badges and will start  his membership drive. It  was voted and passed to raise  membership fees, private  membership to $25, business  $50. Mr. Lowe proposed the  $25 to include man and  wife, to which Mr. Doug Fielding said, "That's o.k. but she  shouldn't have a vote!"  All women present stood and  glared at Mr. Fielding.  Mr. Fielding, never the  shrinking violet, laughed and  said, "My cards are on the  table." Ginny clamp down  on him!  On a more serious vein,  Chamber Chairman Mr.  Harold Clay suggested we  read our local newspapers  to keep up to date on our  incorporation evidently  it's being done for us, whether  we like it or not. According to  the Coast News last week, we  do have a vote on the options  offered. Our area representative will be on holidays  during the next few vital talks  and discussion. I wonder who  is being appointed to look  after our affairs through these  most important issues.  The guest speaker at the  chamber meeting was Mr.  Oliver Coombes, consulting engineer from MacLaren Plansearch Corporation, a consulting firm hired  by the provincial government to conduct, investigate,  and make a formal plan for  the foreshore harbour.  Mr. Coombes, a very highly  qualified young man, seems  to be very much in charge of  the situation and gave the  chamber executive a brief  outline of what his job entails.  He intends to meet with as  many groups, private citizens,  tourists, oldtimers, waterfront owners and upland  owners as possible, in order  to garner information to supply the provincial government with reasons why Pender  Harbour should try to grow.  This is not the first time the  government has made a harbour plan. Ladysmith has a  similar plan, copies of which  Mr. Coombes passed around  the table for the chamber to  study. Questionnaires and  newspaper ads with public  hearings will be held over  the next few months. Most  importantly, Mr. Coombes  will accept letters with your  views which will be taken into  consideration.  GIVE BLOOD.  GIVE LIFE!

Cowries,  /IK WORLD   eFJES Coast News, July 14,1981  21  Sea Cavalcade Queen Candidates  bv Samlv Loani  One of the greatest charms of  gardening is tossing in a wee  nub of a stick, more to get it out  of the way and give it a fighting  chance than with any great  expectations. Two or three  years later this glorious giant  shrub presents itself...slathered with thousands of tiny pink  feathery flowers., They are  clustering around the roses,  mixing it up with the Snapdragons and spilling over my  window sill. The shrub is  Deutzia and I had never seen it  in pink before. Last year it had  about three miserable tiny  flowers and 1 almost didn't  , allow it garden room but this  ; year it has been breathtaking  ��� for three weeks now and shows  no sign of abating or wilting  with very little water. These are  truly lovely shrubs and are very  easy to root (with our ever  necessary Root Tone), but  obviously patience is required.  This plant lasts well indoors  and seems to tie the perennials  together nicely. It is an agreeable  companion  for double  ��� Sandy Loam Pholo  Mock Orange and a happy  surprise for me.  It's funny how nature tries to  compensate for errors in  weather such as miserable wet  uncomfortable springs. Many  plants are doing better than  they normally do. In particular  the Snapdragons, in their  second year are splendid; it  seems a perfect year for  Geraniums and Petunias so it  would seem to be a pink year...  All the pinks I see are clear,  unstreaked and unfaded. My  Sunflowers didn't bother to  come up at all, I am on my third  box of "Slug Death" and still  inundated but relentless in  doing my daily rounds with  machete and clippers.  One thing always balances  off another.... Look at how  green the grass is (and how  often is requires cutting).  Anyway it's hammock snoozing time if your garden is all  cleaned up so relax with a good  book and the feet up.  Cheryl Roberts.

These seem-  ingly  plump  little  squirrels  have very large eyes and small  -ears. They have a broad fold  of skin on either side of the  body used as a parachute-like  ���membrane. When they jump  -from tree to tree they stretch  this fold of skin out between  -the front and hind legs and  f'lide to their destination,  hey have considerable control over this glide and before  taking off they can be seen  closely looking to judge the  distance and direction they  must travel to their chosen  landing spot. If forced to make  "��. hasty jump, they may miss  I.their goal and land on the  ground, or even in water.  While in the glide, the flying  squirrel can slacken or tighten  :the flying membrane or dip  .'the legs from one side or the  other and bank or turn sharply. The tail plays a very  important part in the glide and  acts as a rudder. To land, the  tail is raised and this brings  the body horizontal with the  tree so they always land feet  first. They have a peculiar  habit of racing to the opposite  'side of the tree upon landing.  Flying squirrels have been  seen changing their minds in  mid flight and turning around  to land on the spot they had  just left.  ;! Most North American flying  squirrels have brown fur with  .white underparts but I recent-  <( Van ftp  Jfootisi  886X930  ly heard of an albino found in  this area. They rest during the  daytime in cozy nests made of  dry leaves, shredded bark,  moss, feathers and fur. These  nests are located in hollows  in trees, often an abandoned  woodpecker nest. They have  also been found in roof spaces,  outbuildings and bird houses.  During the fall, flying  squirrels tend to rest in large  groups in a community nest.  When the weather is very  bad these groups go into a  state of semi-torpidity and  sleep for days. They do not  hibernate and can be seen in  late fall hoarding nuts and  seeds to feed on during the  winter. Their diet is nuts,  seeds, fruit, lichen, bark and  insects.  Breeding takes place from  February to late March and  the gestation period is 40  days. There are from two to  six babies in a litter. They are  born totally helpless, being  naked, pink and blind. The  eyes open at 25-28 days and  weaning begins at five weeks.  The knack of 'flying' does not  come instinctively and the  mother does much to train the  babies during their early  learning stages. Often the  young squirrel will miscalculate and fall to the ground and  the mother will fly down to  retrieve it and carry it back  up the tree in her mouth.  Being totally nocturnal their  main enemy is the owl.  There is one other threat they  must contend with and that is  the loss of habitat through  logging. Many a family of  flying squirrels has been  found homeless as a result of  the buzzing of a chain-saw.  Thankfully, some of the chain-  saw operators have been  concerned anough for the  squirrels to relocate them  and some even have brought  helpless young ones home to  be nursed and released when  old enough.

The  planning process is now underway and the public is  invited to be involved as early as possible in the  process.  The purpose of the Plan is to ensure efficient and  effective management of the foreshore resources of  Pender Harbour. The final Plan will be similar to a  land use (zoning) plan except that it will cover the  water area of the Harbour'and not the land. The map  contained in the final Plan will display areas within  the Harbour designated for specific uses and  guidelines developed for their management. The  approximate area to be encompassed by the Plan is  that defined as Pender Harbour by the Canadian  Hydrographical Services' Marine Chart, "Malaspina  Strait" (Sheet 3535, April 1978).  The success of the Plan depends, in a large part,  upon the public informing the Consultant of  foreshore use issues that should be addressed.  These issues when coupled with information on the  resources of the area will form the basis of the Plan.  Several alternative working plans will be developed  for public review from which a final foreshore Plan  will be prepared.  Individuals or groups are invited to submit their  observations and concerns in writing to:  MacLaren Plansearch Corp.  750 West Pender Street  Vancouver, B.C.  V6C 2T7  The consultant will review all comments and include  (the public's views in developing the objectives of the  Plan. The name of the group of individuals will be  placed on a mailing list and they will be contacted  directly during the next phase of the process.  Notices will also be published as the process  i proceeds.  Province of  British Columbia  Ministry of Lands,  Parks and Housing  Honourable James R. Chabol.

Hydro for burying 500-kilo-  volt electrical cables at four  shoreline locations along the  route of the Cheekye-Duns-  muir transmission link from  the B.C. mainland to Vancouver Island.  The work, at points where  the cables emerge from beneath Georgia and Malaspina  straits, will be undertaken by  Penner Brothers Utilities of  Surrey and Webb and Trace of  Victoria.  Penner Brothers was awarded a $2.3 million contract  for work,at Cape Cockburn on  the west coast of Nelson Island and on the west coast of  Texada Island. Webb and  Trace received a $3 million  contract for work at Nile Creek  on the east coast of Vancouver  Island and on the east coast of  Texada Island.  The contracts are for excavation of four trenches at  each location, each trench  1.5 to two metres deep, from  the low water mark to onshore cable terminal stations;  installation of cooling water  pipe systems and burial of the  cables under concrete covers.  A contract was awarded  earlier this year to Dillingham  Corporation for underwater  excavation of trenches to protect the cables from the  low water mark out to a depth  of 20 metres. The trenches will  provide shoreline protection  for the cables from hazards  such as erosion and boat  anchors. Beyond the 20-metre  depth, the cables will rest on  the seabed.  The submarine cables, 150  millimetres in diameter, are  being manufactured in Europe  and will be the world's  longest 500-kV underwater  power cables. Total distance  of the two underwater crossings is 37.1 kilometres.

(1) Excess sun causes the skin  to age qujckly. The skin  becomes dry, leathery and  wrinkled.  (2) People who excessively  expose themselves to the sun  year after year run a greater  risk of developing cancer.  (3) Drugs tan cause the skin  to be more sensitive to the sun:  these drugs include -  - Anticonvulsant drugs  -A.S.A.  - Sulfa drugs] such as Bactrim'.  Septra8, Novotimox�� and  Sulfisoxa/ole.  - Tetracycline.  - Hydrochloriothia/.ide(Hydro-  diuril��).     '  This list is not inclusive as  there are other drugs that cause  photosensitivity. Please consult your pharmacist.  What can be done?  Sunscreens are used for the  prevention of sunburn and may  prevent long term side effects  from the sun.  Which sunscreen or suntan  lotion should be used?  Most products today have a  number on them ranging from  2 to 17, depending on the  protection the product gives.  2 - 4 should be used by people  who always tan and never burn.  S - 6 should be used by people  who burn moderately and tan  gradually.  7 - 8 should be used by people  who always burn easily and tan  minimally.  9 -17 are used by people who  burn easily and never tan.  Sunbathers will require more  than one preparation. Start the  season with a high numbered  product to condition the skin.  As the season progresses, use a  product that gives less protection. End the summer with a  product that affords the least  protection. For example a #2 to  #4.  To apply these products,  spread liberally on the skin  before going out into the sun.  Reapply lotion when necessary as it comes off when  perspiring and swimming.  Happy tanning!  Mi i.  ����- '>*"  m i^tpw  S-*m\\  ov*%^   iiii!iin|i!iii i  h \\\sr.*&t��\  ^V'k  t&m  Ir  NAME.

Send your entries  to the (oast News, Box 460, (iibsons. in time to reach the  newspaper office by Saturday of this week. Last week's $5.00  winner was Debbie Williams of K.K. M. Keed Road. Gibsons,  who correctly identified the location of garbage left on the B.C.  Hydro right-of-wat above langdale (reek, near Stewart Road in  Gibsons.  The return of Gibsons building inspector Ralph Jones from  holidays is necessary to resolve the problem of the Seaview Road  mix-up, which has raised the ire of Gibsons residents, Gary and  Helene Wallinder.  In what was described as a "comedy of errors" by Alderman Bill  Edney at Tuesday's council meeting. Mayor Goddard reviewed  the sequence of events leading up to the explosive meeting  between Helene Wallinder, owner of Attic Antiques and owners  of the newly-built townhouse development on Seaview Road. The  meeting occurred on the morning of June 19, when B.A. Blacktop  arrived to pave part of the Attic Antique parkingarea to widen the  access to Seaview Road and Highway 101.  "It was never the intention of council to get into a situation  where we would take away private property without proper  procedure and discussions". Mayor Goddard told the Wallinders.  "We had agreed verbally to trade a portion of village property  in exchange for part of the parking lot beside our business, but the  trade was never linali/cd, no plans were drawn up and nothing  was ever signed." Gary Wallinder told council.  "It the road had been put in, we would be stuck with it and it  would take years to straighten it out afterwards."  Village planner Rob Buchan told council that on June 15,  townhouse owners Grant and Peters had come to the village to  seek approval for the project, engineered by Doug Roy, for paving  Seaview Road in front of the townhouses to Highway 101 and  Killarney l.ane behind the new development.  "Part of the new paving included a widened access from  Seaview Road to Highway 101. which would require half of the  present parking area of Attic Antiques.  "I had been told by Mr. Jones that Mrs. Wallinder had a copy  of the proposed plans and that he would speak to her about final  approval of them before he left on holidays that week."  Helene Wallinder told council she had never been shown any  plans or proposals by the village until the morning the proposed  paving work was to be done.  "I now have a plan, which was given to me by the townhouse  owners and we still don't know what offer the village is proposing  in exchange for our property."  Alderman Edney recalled that council had discussed various  alternatives with the Wallinders in a meeting in April and the  Wallinders agreed that the present access is dangerous.  Suggestions were made at the time to turn Seaview into a one-way  street coming on to Highway 101. or a cul-de-sac.  "I agree something should be done to improve the present  access, but as far as I know, nothing concrete was every finalized."  Helene Wallinder slated.  Council agreed to withhold paving and widening of Seaview  Road until an agreement was reached with the Wallinders.  "We want a plan and written proposal sent to us, complete with  legal descriptions of all the properties involved," Gary Wallinder  told council.  "The friendly manner of settling this matter has not worked for  us and we want everything to be in writing from now on."

School Board news : playgrounds, report cards, philosophy  Continued from Page One  Bowen Island Playground  Bowen Island's Community School's playground remains wet  and virtually unusable because of a lack of co-operation between  two levels of government.  The Department of Highways blames the contractors. CM  Projects, saying they knew all along there would be a drainage  problem and they should have done something about it in the first  place.  CM Projects admits this is the case but hoped they'd he able to  persuade the Department of Highways to extend a culvert to  accommodate the school plans.  So far the Department refuses to co-operate, but is willing to  consider the extension of a ditch near to the playing fields if CM  Projects can satisfy them that there will not be any erosion, or do  rainfall and absorption tests.  Halfmoon Bay  The Department of Lands and Forests plans to develop a large  parcel of Crown land in the Redrooffs area for residential use and  the School Board is in communication with (hem to acquire 5  acres for school use; if possible adjacent to the recreational park.  Difficulties centre around the Ministry's timetable and the  needs of the Halfmoon Hay community for a larger school.  Secretary Mills, reporting to the School Board, agreed to  continue to press Lands and Forests for an agreement in writing.  Report Cards  School report cards arc coming up for re-appraisal. The  District's ad hoc committee, chaired by John Nicholson, with  representatives of the Teacher's Association and parents. Mrs.  Margaret Goldrup. from Madeira Park. Mrs. Arlenc Robinson  from Cedar Grove and Mrs. Darlene McDougal from Sechelt. has  been meeting since the beginning of the year and reported to the  Board last week.  Ihe Elementary Report cards presently used in the district were  developed about 4 years ago. They arc colour-coded for  Kindergarten. Primary and Intermediate grades and arc designed  to   identifv   the  child's  school  achievement   in  the  teacher's  perception of his her potential. No letter grades or attempts to  compare performance with other children of the same age.  By the Intermediate level, Grades 4 - 7 parents want to know  how their children are doing compared to their peers and an insert  is given at parent-teacher conferences, leaving the parent the  option of sharing the information with the child.  There has been some indication that parents prefer letter grades  or percentages and wish to know where their child stands in  relation to his her classmates.  The Ministry of Education is also re-assessing methods and  philosophy of reporting and issuing a series of statements. So far  these appear to be following the same trend as local thinking,  though Victoria would like to sec a K-grade 3 continuum in style,  and also that Grade 7 children receive letter grades so that they are  prepared for the transition to Junior Secondary schools.  There seems to be a difference in philosphy between parents and  teachers, and the Ministry is responding to parental concerns for  the recognition of excellence and the improvement of basic skills,  while teachers, who obviously look upon these issues as important  too, are equally concerned for the individual child's development  and needs in other areas and for the not so gifted child. All  children need to receive credit for their achievement.  Trustees expressed their concern that while meeting the  Ministry's requirements all efforts should be made to give parents  an option and to meet individual needs. Trustee Hodgins felt  strongly, as a parent that he did not want letter grades for his  children while in Grades 4 - 6 and that it's important to enhance  the personal nature of the document and keep the close  relationship between teacher and parent. "How can you give letter  grades and teach to a child's needs?" he asked, donning his  teacher's hat.  Trustee Puchalski felt parents need an assessment of their  child's capabilities and Trustee McKibbin asked whether the  Ministry intends to bring back standardized province-wide  testing.  Draft Resolutions  Three draft resolutions prepared by Trustee Hodgins.  McKibbin and Lloyd were passed by the Board to the  Management Committee for further consideration and to be  incorporated into hiring policy after further discussion and Board  'approval.  Each expressed the concern of trustees that community values  and criteria for the hiring of teachers and most importantly  principals, be not only made known to those hired, but be used in  evaluation processes, and provisions made for a continuous  update as the community evolves.  It was suggested that at the Secondary level students also  should be involved in the discussion of requirements and the sort  of person they think should be a principal, in the hope that they  will work to support the person chosen by such a process.  School Board Statement of Philosophy  "Do what the hell you want, but don't spend any more money"  was the comment of one reply to the School Board's statement of  Philosophy and Educational goals for this district.  The Board mailed out 8,486 copies of their proposed statement  to the community with pre-paid return-postage at a cost of $365.  Only 70 (.82%) were returned for an additional cost of $14.56. At  the time of writing it wasn't possible to ascertain the cost of paper  and printing, but printing was done by Carson Graham School in  North Vancouver to reduce costs.  The Board decided to approve the statement of goals, as there  had not been any great disagreement with their proposals and to  make it available to teachers and principals asking the latter to  submit their own goals for each individual school within this  framework.
