The public is  cordially invited to attend.

U.S. policy in Gen *  tral America."  Joan Robb  Teachers to  study options  Cameo Industries Ltd, of  Sechelt has submitted a bill in the  amount of $7,132.45 to the Sunshine Coast Regional District to  cover out of pocket costs incurred  for architectural and legal fees  after the Board accepted, earlier  this year, Henry Hall's proposal  to construct an office building to  house the SCRD function. Of this  figure, $6,807.95 are architectural  fees and $324.50 are legal fees.  At the regular meeting of the  SCRD board last Thursday, chairman Jim Gurney confirmed that  he had agreed on the board's  behalf to be responsible for all architectural costs incurred should  the board not be able to proceed  with construction. He did not  confirm that the board agreed to  cover Mr. Hall's legal costs.  Gibsons representative Lorraine Goddard recommended that  the bill be submitted to their  lawyers, Mackenzie and Lidstone  for comment, noting that she did  not believe that the board should  be responsible for legal costs incurred by Mr. Hall on his behalf.  Plans to construct a building to  house the SCRD were dashed  mid-July by Municipal Affairs  when the ministry denied approval to allow the SCRD to exceed the 112 per cent Municipal  Expenditure Restraint Programme. As an alternative to  building, the board decided to  lease 7,010 sq. feet at Royal Terraces in Sechelt. Although a formal lease has not been drawn as  yet, a letter of intent has been  signed.  Joan Robb, president of the  local S.C.T.A., in a statement to  the Coast News on the weekend,  emphasized the importance of  viewing the proposed government  cut-backs in the broader context  of the overall economic position  of the province. For the second  time this year, the government has  overridden legislation as far as the  education budget is concerned;  first cutting $28 million and then  $37 million, for a total of $65  million in one year.  "This will have a profound impact on the quality of education  and on the morale of trustees and  teachers," said Ms. Robb. One  area of education which could  come under attack is class size.  B.C. ranks tenth worst out of the  twelve provinces ip pupil-teacher  ratio and it has taken ten years of  negotiation to raise it from the  She wished to highlight the  seriousness of the provincial  government's attempt to remove  decision making from the local  school board levels and centralize  it in the cabinet. She views the appointment of Mr. Vander Zalm as  Minister of Education as an indication of the government's intention not to improve education.  Mr. Vander Zalm is on record as  downgrading public education in  favour of private schools.  Robb felt the government is attempting to push teachers in the  direction of voluntary roll-backs  which, in the long term, does not  solve the problem, as in January  teachers will again be faced with  either roll-backs or lay-offs. She  emphasized that the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association will  look carefully at every option, including co-operative action with  by Maryanne West  Contrary to popular belief,  Secretary-Treasurer Mills told  trustees, teachers, and CUPE  representatives, the School Board  has no obligation to provide bus  transportation for children. The  special meeting, which was called  last Wednesday to discuss the options open to the school community to meet the government's  required reduction of another  $231,219 from this year's budget,  began slowly, with tensions tight  and controlled.  Trustee Hodgins, and later arrival Stephen, expressed  themselves with frustration and  anger. They said they had taken  on the job of trustee believing it  possible to work co-operatively  for the betterment of education in  this district, and now found  themselves powerless, their  "responsibility eviscerated by the  government".  Joan Robb, President of the  Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Association, said she "felt stunned. There is no way we can speak  for the Association, especially  when you're talking about opening up a collective agreement."  Hans Lehman, President of the  CUPE local, expressed similar  feelings and Walter Whitehead  likened the government's  rollbacks to "giving us enough  gas for three-quarters of a mile  and expecting us to push the car  the other quarter." "You might  as well ask whether we'd prefer  our right or left arm cut off," added Robb.  Mills had prepared a five page  report detailing the state of the  current budget, item by item;  what monies were unspent in each  account, with suggestions of  where and/or how savings might  be made.  The whole bus transportation  could be turned over to free enterprise, for example, and save  $425,000 a year, or charge bus  fares of ten cents per child, per  ride, which would realize approximately $45,000 a year, less administrative costs. As there is no  longer any government grant to  subsidize bus transportation,  Mills is working on re-vamping  routes, with the possibility of cutting out one bus, saving $25,000 a  year, and still keeping the system  a viable enterprise for the contractor.  There is $8,456 left in the swimming budget; should we sacrifice  the swimming programme ur part  of it? Similarly, there is $7,000  left in the travel budget. Sizeable  sums not yet spent are in the  budgets for teaching, janitorial  and maintenance supplies. Can we  do without substitute teachers,  secretarial aid or a janitor if they  are off sick for a day or so? Con^  siderable savings could be made in  operating costs (an estimated  $40,000) if everyone would  become energy conscious, turning  down thermostats, keeping win-,  dows closed and turning off  lights.  As it became clear that Mills  had gone through all non-salary  items with a fine tooth comb, that  everything was out on the table  for discussion, with trustees asking for advice from those who will  have to work with the results of  their final decision, and that they  will inform the government that  the consultative process will take  longer than the August 30th  deadline, tensions eased. The  adversarial potential changed to  an atmosphere of resigned cooperation.  Trustees agreed to Mills' suggestions that a saving of $4,800 in  rent could be made by buying two  portable classrooms presently on  lease. The purchase would be  debited from the capital account  not yet affected by government  restraint.  Superintendent-Denley and  Secretary Mills re-emphasized the  impossibility to meet the government's requirements without  some salary cutbacks, also that in  1983 the district will have to  operate with more pupils and with  higher costs for utilities, supplies  and equipment, but with a budget  which is $394,842 less than started  out with this year.  Leif Mjanes, teachers' bargaining chairman, reminded all present that local control over education is what is at stake, and urged  all those who understand the importance to use every means possible to fight against the government's centalization policies. A  statement corroborated by the  new Minister of Education, whose  statement the following day included a plan to abolish school  boards.

Gas spills at  Secret Cove  by Julie Warkman  by Julie Warkman  Following a review of the report  submitted to the Minister of  Education by his Transfer Review  Committee dealing with the appeal of Barrie Boulton's transfer  from principal of Elphinstone  Secondary School to a teaching  position at Chatelech, the  Minister has advised School  District No. 46 and Mr. Boulton  that he is to be reinstated as prin-  ciPa1, .....  Boulton was dismissed as principal of Elphinstone Secondary  School earlier this year by the  Board of Trustees and was to  assume a non-supervisory position at Chatelech Secondary  School this September. He ap  pealed the Board's decision to the  Minister of Education and a hearing was held by the Transfer  Review Committee last month.  Last Thursday, a committee of  the board met with Mr. Boulton  to review the context of that  report. Boulton told the Coast  Newt that nothing concrete was  derived from the meeting but it  was positive, and provided the opportunity to share mutual ideas.  Although school board representatives were not available for  comment, the press release noted,  "It is the desire of the Board that  all concerned will work together  positively and constructively in  the best interests of the students  of Elphinstone Secondary School.  Last Wednesday morning, falling rock damaged a water draw  valve on the bottom of one of the  gasoline tanks at Secret Cove  Marina, causing approximately  500 gallons of gasoline to spill.  Deborah Killam, daughter of  marina owner Hayden Killam,  and co-worker Jeff Tiaple, smell-  ed gas fumes around 10:00 a.m.  and, upon investigation,  discovered the damaged valve.  RCMP Corporal Mike Fergeson,  whose police boat was at the  marina, plugged the one-inch hole  with wooden plugs and heavy  towelling, greatly reducing the  flow.  Upon arrival at the scene, the  Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire  Department immediately cordoned off the area and applied foam  to reduce the fire hazard. Provincial Emergency Program  volunteer, Graeme Faris, installed  a boom and absorbent at the base  of the tanks to contain the spill  and prevent gasoline from seeping  into the harbour. Two Esso trucks  arrived in the early afternoon to  pump out the remainder of the  gasoline from the tanks.  There seems to be a lot of finger  pointing going on over the incident and the Coast News was  unable to determine just who was  responsible for ensuring that the  rock above the tanks was secured.  Marina manager Dave Finch told  the Coast News, however, that the  marina was adequately insured.  Although the fire danger is  past, fumes still lingered faintly in  the area at week's end. The fire  department recommended that a  water hose be let run down the  rock to flush out gasoline as an  added safety precaution. The  fisheries officer is also watching  the situation closely in the event  that gasoline seeps into the bay.  Disaster was averted last Thursday by quick action of marina workers  and the immediate response of emergency volunteers when a falling  rock damaged a water valve on one of these tanks at Secret Cove  Marina. Approximately 500 gallons of gasoline escaped from the  valve before the tanks could be drained and the valve replaced.  -JulkWare.a. r*oio  mm  V!  m Coast News, August 16,1982  Take the money and run  Few things are more difficult for a social-democratic  newspaper, or for that matter anyone who espouses social-  democratic principles, than to speak forthrighily about the  trade union movement. An example of this can be found in  the almost embarrassing lack of comment concerning the  B.C.G.E.U. strike, from the province's most prominent  social democrat, opposition leader, Dave Barrett.  This newspaper has never been shy about its support of  social democracy, or its support of the trade union movement  in general. However, as a small business, we too suffer when  labour disputes hurt our brothers and sisters in business in the  community.  Frankly, we would probably be unable to survive the current economic conditions were we a union shop. Fortunately,  we have built a business which we feel goes beyond trade  unionism. We have built our business on the co-operative  principle whereby the people we work with are also part  owners of the newspaper. All of us share the good times and  suffer in the bad times equally.  When the B.C. government workers closed the ferries for a  day, two weeks ago, the small businessmen we do business  with, suffered. As a result, we suffered.  Despite the righteousness of their demands, and despite the  fact that they were burned on a bad three-year contract, we  believe that the government workers should recognize that in  tough times they, too, will have to bite the bullet, just like  everyone else.  Maybe, if we can get this economic machine running again,  the taxpayers of the province will be able to afford to pay the  government workers what they deserve. In the meantime, it's  time to grab the six-and-a-half per cent and run.  Double Dutch  Larry Kuehn of the B.C. Teachers' Federation sent the new  Education Minister, Bill Vander Zalm, a letter last week,  welcoming the new minister to his post. He wrote the letter in  French.  He also publicly condemned Vander Zalm as being antagonistic towards public education.  Vander Zalm, not to be outdone, sent a reply to Kuehn,  written in Dutch.  Kuehn should know enough not to proclaim a self-fulfilling  prophesy. After all, Mr. Vander Zalm may have some new  ideas about how to finance the education system - Dutch  treat, perhaps!  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AQO  Tickets are selling briskly for the first ever Dogfish  Derby, to be held in Gibsons on Saturday, August  20, 1977.

Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  It was the time of the gathering  of honey. Now there's an idyllic  opening if ever there was one. It  might have been idyllic, too, but  for the bees.  We've all heard about the  swarms of killer bees that are said  to be moving gradually north  from South America but we surely  don't worry about it much in  Canada, there being other things  to occupy our attention.  They don't worry about them in  Lafayette, Colorado, either whefc  this is being written and I'm njm  about to suggest that the bees in  this tale are the notorious killer  bees. As a preview of a night  marish future, however, it will  certainly do.  My son and I were returning  from a gentle little horseback  outing, gentle because dear old  dad hadn't mounted up since  1969, when the first sign of trouble manifested itself.  As we walked the horses  through the gate and onto the property, Stuart suddenly galloped  his horse up to the door of the  house, sprang from its back and  hurled himself inside the house  clawing frantically at his head. I  had no idea why and contented  myself with corralling his horse  which also seemed most anxious  to leave the scene and led it to the  barn.  I returned from the barn to find  a house besieged, if you will pardon the pun. The bees were taking  strong exception to the looting of  their larder and buzzed in their  hundreds around every window  and door in a state of total war  with everything that moved.  A picnic had been planned in  the mountains above Boulder,  Colorado, for that afternoon and  suddenly it no longer seemed a  simple matter. Several abortive  forays to close the gate behind the  horses saw Stuart and I return  with furious bees entangled in our  hair buzzing like giant berserk  mosquitoes on the rampage.  Finally the beekeeper in his protective clothing had to close the  gate.  The picnic - what to do. I made  a desperate weaving run to the car  which would have done credit to a  football halfback. I plunged inside accompanied only by a single  kamikaze bee which I promptly  vanquished and found myself now  sitting in the pitiless sunshine in a  car that was as hot as an oven with  windows tightly closed and dozens  of bees buzzing angrily around  me. I had forgotten the car keys.  I was joined by Frances who  managed to gain entrance accompanied only r by a couple of attackers. Stuart tried for the back  door but it was locked. He dived  into a truck parked nearby but the  security was illusory as the far  window was open. He was stung  several times before he made it into the car accompanied by more  of the swarm. Much flailing, slapping, kicking, screaming and  general mayhem in the stifling  confines of the cars.  Laurie, my youngest daughter,  made a run from the house but  turned and fled through the gate  clutching her pony tail and dancing a desperate dance. Hobo, the  dog, fled in mad circles around  the yard trying to bite his back  while running at full speed.  Frances had a car key. W.e  drove after the fleeing Laurie,  leaving the larger car to carry the  rest of the outing. Laurie had just  succeeded in outrunning the bees  when we arrived in the car with a  cloud of bees around'it. She was  instantly under attack again and  when she got into the car had six  in her hair. More mayhem inside  the car with everyone slapping at  each other and at windows.  We fled for the mountains.  Next day the siege continued.  Every exit and every entrance into  the house during daylight hours  took place at a dead run, often accompanied by wild slapping  gestures and occasional howls of  pain.  The third day the tide of aggression subsided. The memories of  bee stings faded and one was left  with a new appreciation of white  sugar.  Maim and Bludgeon Weekly  reports the growing phenomenon  of the "survivalists" in North  America. Survivalists, apparently,  are citizens, mostly confined to  the United States, so far, who  spend their weekends preparing  for the day when we all turn on  one another and start killing our  neighbours.  The scenario goes something  like this: The economy is in a  depressed state, there is a crime-  wave, racial hatred, trade union  lawlessness, and a ��� general  breakdown of law and order. People start breaking into their  neighbour's refrigerators for  something more than just a midnight snack.  When this general urban terror  begins, the survivalists will be  prepared with guns, dynamite,  knives, clubs, and just about any  other convenient disemboweling  tool.  I don't know who to be more  afraid of, a hungry burglar, or the  guy next door with a .357  magnum under his pillow and a  mine field where his lawn used to  be.  Towards a wider perspective  Recession explained  by Geoffrey Madoc-Jones  As the recession bites deeper into our economic lives we would do  well to consider the causes and  necessity of this latest economic  downturn. '  In the opinion of goverments,  and in particular the American,  the only real way to cure inflation  is with radical surgery i.e. recession. Unfortunately, we may be in  a position where the operation  was successful, but that patient  died.  Therefore, to understand the  recession one needs to know  something about inflation. Inflation is not a new problem.  During the fourth century AD,  between 1150 and 1325 and 1520  and 1650 in Europe, after the  Civil War in the US and during  the First World War, prices all  rose dramatically. However in the  past these peaks were followed by  troughs. But, in the capitalist  economies since the Second  World War, and in particular  since the Korean War, inflation  seems to have been a chronic element. There has not been an acute  rise followed by a short fall.  The question is: in what way is  the market-capitalist economic  system different now from a hundred years ago? The basic reasons  are that politics and economics  are much more directly linked.  Governments are now not only  major sources of economic  power, but also politically have  not be able, until the Reagan administration,, to have the political  will to administer the cure which a  nineteenth  century  politician  would; that is: massive unemployment and wage cut backs.  It is ironic that today, despite  all the 'advances' that have been  made in technology, computer  models and economic theory that  the only answer deemed successful  should be the crude bludgeon  more befitting a Dickensian  Gradgrind than a Twentieth Century social scientist. It bears  repeating that governments in  Canada and the US, despite all  their fancy talk about supply-side  economics etc, have only one  answer to the growing inflation,  and that is unemployment, wage  cut backs and attacks on the social  welfare safety net.'  It is not that I do not recognize  that indexed social security,  COLA clauses and strong unions  have not been an important part  of cost-push inflation, but so also  has monopoly capitalism, massive  arms expenditures, the Vietnam  War, OPEC price rises, US  economic policy (export inflation)  and falling productivity (a result  partly of a more service oriented  economy). All of these are causes  of the chronic inflation of the 60's  and 70's. There is also the important psychological factor, the  state of mind that assumes inflation is going to continue.  While it is recognized that inflation poses a real threat to the  economic system, through growing exponentially, through  threatening the value of money  assets, through the threat of  financial instability and through a  denial of potential growth, it must  Please turn to Page 3  Maim and Bludgeon Weekly:  doesn't really exist, of course, but;  there are a frighteningly high;  number of publications being pro-;  duced these days that give very;  clear instructions on how to;  brutalize your fellow man, and;  maiming and bludgeoning are;  among the less disagreeable of i  these fates. J  a  The survivalists don't talk;  about guns - they talk about!  "weapons systems". You know;  the kind of thing: "We've design-;  ed this new weapons system for;  the average homeowner who just -  wants to protect his wife and;  family. Our system allows you to I  convert your average .357;  magnum house weapon into a'  machine of mass destruction, j  We've bored out the slug and in- ���  serted high explosive. One shot  can blow an assailant into little  pieces at 200 yards. It's a hell of a '  deterrent."  Deterrent is one of the basic;  catchwords. Nobody says hej.  wants to kill people, he just wants!,  to deter them by blowing them in-!:  to little pieces. 2  Another survivalist basic is 8  underground air raid shelters, not -  like little concrete boxes in the*  back yard, but apartments, whole "-  cities, built into the sides of'  mountains in places like Colorado!  and Wyoming - condominiums; I  for chaos - complete with shopp->  ing malls, movies and rec centres.3  These survivalists are split into 1  two basic groups: there are the*  maimers and bludgeoners, then*  there are the air-heads and daisy ;  sniffers. The first group would;  kill you where you stand for asi  much as looking in the ice box, '  The second bunch spend their j  time drying herbs and fruit in:  preparation for the holocaust, at j  which time they will wander off;  into the forests to live among trie''  trees and bears.  The real crazies, though, are the j  first crowd. I heard on the CBC  the other day about one group of t  these gun and martial arts freaks-  which spends weekends playing,  games like "the food rip-off"A  This is apparently a real game,'  played by some survivalists in  Toronto. On weekends they go into the woods and camp out. They  split into two groups and spend a  couple of days trying to steal one  another's food. For realism and  practice, they blast away at one  another with air guns.  The most terrifying thing about  the survivalists is that they are  growing in numbers as the  paranoia spreads. Now we have  shopkeepers in small B.C. towns  threatening to keep guns to protect themselves against robbers,  and women and children taking  night classes in mayhem and eye  gouging.  I have yet to do one thing to  protect myself from the coming ,  chaos. When it arrives, I think I'll  just put my refrigerator out on th((:  front lawn, and go to bed.

In  these difficult times with  so much of our economy  in sad straits we find it  difficult to i understand  your lack of action to  maintain, without a  shadow of a doubt, our  ferry services which are  the lifelines of a major  portion of this tourist  trade. Even the mention  of a cessation of ferry  service is enough to  severely damage this section of the economy.  Additionally, for the  residents of the Sunshine  Coast, the ferries are our  one and only highway,  and we strongly protest  the interference with our  daily lives when this service is interrupted. Food  supplies, mail, bus service, many medical services and transport to  and from work are either  cut off or severely curtailed. For those of us  gaining our livelihood  from the tourist it can  mean near catastrophe  when an interruption occurs, as is threatened,  particularly during the  summer months.  As payers of heavy  property taxes we  strenuously object to  once again, being placed  in the position of pawns  in the struggle between  Labour Unions and the  Provincial government.  We urgently request that  legislation is speedily  forthcoming to ensure  that, in the future, our  ferry services are treated  as an essential service  and protected from any  interruption, other than  weather or mechanical  difficulties.  In conclusion, we  would like to offer a suggestion that would  enhance the accessibility  of the Sunshine Coast,  remove a reported  money losing ferry service, and open up a large  expanse of country full  of recreational possibilities. The completion of  a road between Squamish and Port Mellon,  we feel sure, would bring  economic advantage that  would far outweigh its  cost.  Yours truly  Cliff Stone, Pres.  Pender Harbour and  Egmont Chamber of  Commerce  Mr. John Fryer  General Secretary  BCGEU  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  There is an old story  about a person being  foolish enough to kill the  goose that laid the  golden eggs. We are surprised that a person as  purportedly well informed as you would place  yourself somewhat in  this position.  Possibly your zeal to  arrange a better lifestyle  for your union members  has blinded you to the  damage you have done,  and are doing to large  numbers of other  workers. Your action in  closing down the ferry  services that serve our  coastal waters has  created havoc with our  tourist business. Yes, we  realize you have allowed  the ferries to start sailing  again, but the unspoken  threat of another stoppage has continued to  curtail the expected flow  of tourists.  We would like to point  out to you that tourism  was one of the few bright  spots on the dismal  economic scene. For  many of our tourist  facility operators you  have reduced the tourist  season to about six  weeks, with the resulting  loss of revenue to  owners, workers, and the  province as a whole.  So, we ask you,  "Where is the goose that  is supposedly going to  lay the golden eggs to  provide the extra money  to which you feel your  members are entitled?"  Certainly it is not to be  found in empty hotel and  motel rooms or in vacant  tables in restaurants and  lounges.  Yours truly,  Cliff Stone, Pres.  Pender Harbour and  Egmont Chamber of  Commerce  "Hate"  mail  Editor:  We hate you.  We hate our job.  We want more money  than you offer.  We want job security.  We want you to promise  us we can work here  forever.  We want a share of your  profit, not of the losses.  We want better benefits.  We want you to pay for  them.  We want to tell you how  to run your business.  We want a lot more, but  we will talk about that  some other time.  Now if you don't give  us what we want, we will  strike; we will make  everything stop, and  there is nothing you can  do because we are many,  and you are few. When  you want production  again, you have to give  us what we want.  Now don't try to be  smart, because we  managed to get a law, so  that you cannot fire us  when we are blackmailing you.  Now don't be afraid,  you have a choice: give  us what we want, or lose  all the business - after  all, we are not that bad.  O yeah. We almost  forgot, after you give us  all we want, and things  are back to normal  again, you can only hire  new people that belong  to our union. You see,  that way we cannot lose  any of our beautiful collectivism.  We think you are really smart, giving us all  that we want, because  after all, we work for  you.

(by William  Bisset, Coast News, July  12, 1982)  In the above-  mentioned column Mi.  Bisset demands to know  why this man's work is  relatively unknown in  Canada.  In one word Mr.  Bisset, politics.  The mere fact that you  quote Tolstoy is enough  evidence that you are  dealing from a political  deck. This author of  War and Peace  dissipated in his surroundings, had his "flight  from the world" and  eventually died in a  railroad station.  A few years ago, the  CBC were proposing a  TV series using Gibsons  simulated as a small Russian fishing village.  This prompted a conversation with a local  lifetime liberal thinking  friend of mine wherein  we came to the abrupt  conclusion that Gibsons  had been for many years  a lesser back bench of  Bolshevism, provincially  and federally and  therefore required little  simulation or attention.  I expect too, the CBC  and the powers that be  had second thoughts,  choosing to go with the  popular tide of the  Beachcombers.  Yours truly,  Richard F. Kennett  Port Moody, B.C.

FIRE CALL:  Roberts Creek firemen  were called out of their  beds a week ago Sunday  night for a beach fire by  the wharf that  neighbours felt had gotten out of hand. It  wasn't serious but could  have been if the huge  bonfire had spread to the  surrounding logs.  R.C.

Hydro negotiated with Lafarge Concrete Ltd. of Vancouver  to supply electricity for  about 1,800 H.P. to their  Earl Creek Operation at  East Egmont. To accommodate this load Hydro  requires upgrading of  Distribution Overhead  lines from the Pender  Harbour Substation  along Hwy. 101 to Maple  Road at Egmont. The  sidelines require improved insulation property  and tranformer changes  to accommodate the improved potential of  14.4/25 kilovolts. Three  additional submarine  cables will be added to  the present Skookum-  chuck crossing. Most of  the work will be done by  an experienced local  work force. The project  cost is estimated at  $480,000. The works will  be beginning now with  the anticipated in-service  date by Spring ot 1983.  During the period of up  to early September,  1982, various service interruptions are necessary  as advertised. These will  spread over various areas  and at different times.  Hydro asks all its  customers affected to be  patient during the few  weeks interrupted  period.

A loose  rock had apparently rolled down the hillside and  had knocked the valve  off a large gasoline  storage tank causing the  gas to run out in huge  quantities.  Fortunately the willing  hands of the volunteer  groups were able to contain the spill before it  reached the ocean. It  makes you wonder what  fire and building inspectors are thinking about  when they allow condominiums to be built  directly above such containers. If someone had  just happened to throw a  cigarette over a balcony  it would have been a  total disaster.  Our heartfelt thanks  are due to these fellows  who prevented further  cafastropji^ by getting,  out there in time and*  having the know-how to  attend to the matter so  hastily.  KILLER WHALES:  On that same day  there were two killer  whales spotted heading  right into Halfmoon  Bay. This is an unusual  detour for these  beauiiful creatures to  take.  There was another  unusual visitor sitting  looking in the porch  door of a Redrooffs  residence the other morning in the early hours.  A big otter was interested to see who lived  there and sat gazing in  the window for quite  some time. The interesting part of this was  that the house was not  on the waterfront but  well away from the  ocean.  GREETINGS TO  THOSE ON THE SICK  LIST:  Our good wishes for a  speedy recovery go out  to Ed Milton of  Redrooffs who is still a  patient in St. Mary's  Hospital having recently  had further surgery.  Keep up the old spirit Ed  - wishing you well.  Get well wishes also go  out to Eva Lyons, a well  known and loved lady of  Redrooffs who has  recently been made to  slow down a wee bit. Eva  is looking forward to a  visit from her daughter  from Montreal, Marlyn  Russell.  Friends of Blanche  McCrady will be glad to  hear that Blanche is coming along nicely these  days after a bout of trouble. ' Glad to see Owen  Edmunds around again  and looking just great.  A HAPPY  ANNIVERSARY:  Al and Joan Macke-  reth of Halfmoon Bay  had a very happy fortieth  wedding celebration recently in the form of a  family gathering at the J  Bar T Guest Ranch in the  Cariboo. A. group of  thirty-seven family and  friends got together to  help celebrate the occasion including three  sons with their families.  The family is scattered  between Prince Rupert,  Burns Lake, Castlegar  and Penticton so the  ranch was the ideal central location for  everyone to get together  and have a great time.  Recent house guests at  the Vince and Mary  Shannon residence were  Tip and Jessie Corson.  Jessie is the sister of Don  Ross who resided on  Redrooffs for many  years prior to his home  burning down a couple  of  years   ago.

The history is interesting. The ECPOA,  locally known as the Egmont Water Board, was  founded in 1962 and was  given permission by the  school board to tap into  the school's wooden  system.

The Ratepayers have  several important issues  they have been working  on with not too much  success. A lot of work  has gone into trying to  get cablevision in the  area, but there are not  quite enough numbers to  sanction the cablevision  extending up their way.  The radio reception is  terrible, a throwback  from Richardson Mountain affects the radios  and any strong wind  causes static and they  cannot get FM.  A big problem at present, and it is a continuing problem all over, is  that big dogs are running  wild. There is a lack of  consideration by dog  owners; one lady  counted 39 dogs at the  corner mailbox one day.  The mailboxes in the  rural areas draw more  dogs than the traditional  fire hydrant.  Skin divers park at the  small park and go off  and leave their dogs on  the loose for two and  three hours at a time.  SHOOTERS  WEEKEND:  The.Sechelt Peninsula  Rod and Gun Club is  planning a two day shoot  at the Gun Club in  Wilson Creek on Saturday and Sunday,  September 4th - Sth.  The club is expecting  shooters from Powell  River, Port McNeil and  Vancouver Gun Club.  The plan is to have  something for everyone  in the family. There will  be skeet, trap, doubles,  singles and singles plus,  junior, fifteen years and  under, father and son  trap shooting.  Planning of the junior  shoots will be helped  with a phone call to Marty Clarke at 885-9858.  A women's twenty-  two shoot on target is  planned if enough people  desire to try their  shooting skill; again,  Marty, as shooting director, is the one to 'phone.  A snack bar will be in  operation both days. A  big steak dinner is on for  the Saturday night at the  clubhouse at ten dollars  per person.  The events start off on  the Saturday at  10:00  a.m.   Spectators   are  welcome at no charge.

CHARLIE  BROOKMAN FISHING  DERBY:  For many years,  Charlie Brookman was a  familiar figure walking  along the waterfront  road in Davis Bay,  fishing rod in hand,  heading for the wharf.  He not only spent many  hours catching fish for  himself, but teaching the  children of the area the  fun of the sport. This is  what started the annual  event that took place  Saturday, August 14th.  When Charlie himself  was no longer around to  have his annual fishing  day, others took over in  his memory. Frank and  Marion Laidlaw were  followed by Walter  Taylor, whose illness last  year caught everyone unprepared and there was  no fishing derby.  Stepping in to carry on  the tradition was Turner  Berry of the Peninsula  Market. Sponsors of the  derby have been and  continue to be the  Sechelt Legion Ladies  Auxiliary.

They supplied 1,500  feet of four inch  aluminum pipe from the  lake to tie into the  school's system and ran  two inch to one inch lines  to various ahd sundry  properties.  Oliver Larson was  reported to have closed  down his logging show  three times for up to two  weeks at a time to bring  his crew into town to  help with this phase of  the water system.  Since then. Gene and  Vi have remained president and secretary of this  very non-profit organization every year since  1962, except one year  when Jack Bathgate assumed the burden and  four years in the beginning when Johnny Dunlop assumed the secretarial legwork.  The new system was  hooked up by noon today and the cup I was  washing was blown out  of my hand. Our pulsating shower resembled  Old Faithful in Yellowstone. Thanks should be  given to Roy Mills of  School District 46, Jamie  Stephen and Al Lloyd  for their very generous  support in this latest development.  derby is the fish must be  caught from the wharf.  Open to all under twelve  years old, the event offers many wonderful  prizes.  The winner with the  largest salmon, measuring eight inches in  length, was Danny Abbott from Calgary. Danny and his family have  been summering at Davis  Bay for many years, so is  well acquainted with the  Brookman trophy which i  will now have his name1  added to the others going  back to 1961. A smaller  trophy is his to keep.  Second largest salmon  turned in by Darren  Brackett. Largest perch  caught by Kevyn Stich  from North Delta. Biggest shiner, Chad Wood-  ay; the second biggest  shiner, Cindy Livingstone. The most fish  caught, all shiners, by  Christie Cooper. A big  flounder, sixteen inches,  was captured by Stephen  Cavalier. The youngest  fisherman was Kim  Woodly, and the largest  starfish fished up by  Suzanne Merrett,  Guessing the number  of toothpicks in a jar  -Danny Martinez.  The fastest blueberry  pie eater, as well as the  salmon winner, was  Danny Abbott; second  speedy eater, Danny  Sedlacek and third,  Jason Hofmarks.  There were forty  registered, a fine sight to  see the crowd of young  fishermen all lined up on  the wharf,  Ice cream, hot dogs,  doughnuts and orange  drinks all handed out by  the Sechelt Legion  ladies. Gladys Ritchie,  Joan Ross, Dorothy  Peterson, Lydia Hall,  Bubbles Creighton and  Zone Commander, Wally Erickson, congratulated the fishermen  and thanked all for participating.

They didn't get  much there, but were interested in the fact that  Byron Wright of Quality  Fish in Vancouver, who  now owns 25 seine boats,  was literally breaking his  own strike by fishing  through the UFAWU  strike. The Tzoonie  River fishes for the Central Native Fisherman's  Co-op, who refused to  provide or sell ice to any  UFAWU boat. The  CNFC has consistently  refused membership to  any fish boat during any  strike on our coast.  Apparently, two boats  from the CNFC did well  on the Fraser Sockeye  which did indeed wander  into Milbank Sound this  year. The Llama Pass  had 3,000 on Sunday  night and the Cape Can-  so had yet another 3,000  on their Tuesday morning set. Of course the  Tzoonie River, whose  home for the last 15 to 20  years has been Milbank  Sound, was in Crescent  Bay that week. That's  fishing, folks!  SUMMER FOLKS  LEAVE:  We will be sorry to see  Lyle Hurd and Naomi  leave next week to visit  their son Dusty and  family, and then begin  their trek eastward to  Hamilton, where they  spend the winter with  Naomi's friends and  relatives. They consistently return to Egmont for five to six  weeks every summer,  after Lyle gave up being  a local almost three years  ago.  CUISINE RAPIDE EN  EGMONT:  You can get fast food  in town if you wander  over to the community  hall. Irene Banya has set  up Tammy's Foods next  door. Fish and chips to  deluxe burgers to chips  with gravy are produced  for you at comparable  prices in downtown Egmont.

That was the gist of  the Collier's article. The  story was offbeat enough  that it rested in the back  of my mind over the  years. Thus, I was quite  amazed one day in 1961  when I stumbled across  the strange emporium  called Wilson's Arcade  of Mysteries and found it  was operated by the very  same Holy Herb I had  read about years before.  The place was eccentric to say the least - a  minor league Black  Museum containing such  disquieting exhibits as a  hangman's rope and the  actual trunk where a  body had once been  secreted in a famous  murder case. There were  wax dummies of  notorious underworld  figures, including Al  Capone. Around the  walls hung a series of  lurid paintings like the  covers of 1930 pulp  magazines. They ranged  from Adam and Eve being tempted by the devil  to appallingly graphic  prison scenes of men being flogged or cut down  from the gallows. They  were garish and unplea-'  sant - not the sort of art  you would want hanging  over your fireplace. They  , were, Wilson explained  proudly, the product of.  his own brush, for while  in San Quentin he had  studied under a colleague  of Diego Rivera, the  Mexican muralist.  As I recalled the man,  I sprang to the obvious  conclusion that it would  be literary madness to  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  waste such a prime subject as a mere background character in  another yarn. Holy Herb  warranted at least an article - perhaps even a  book. But it would require some extensive  research.  Research is not exactly  my long suit. Accordingly, I contacted my dear  and longtime friend,  Yvonne Klan, who is an  archive-borrower of  great tenacity and skill. 1  outlined my idea and  suggested that we collaborate on the project.  To my delight, she instantly agreed.  Thus we embarked on  what was to prove a very  strange odyssey indeed.  Our first port of call  was the newspaper clippings files. One fact soon  became evident - Holy  Herb was a man who  craved publicity like a  drug. As one columnist  put it sarcastically, "he  contacted us."  In I9S0 Herb boasted  to reporters that he had  been questioned by the  FBI concerning the  Boston Brink's robbery.  Since this crime bore all  the earmarks of his  modus operandi he was  suspected of masterminding it from long  distance. In 1951 he called the press to announce  that the King of the  Safecrackers had taken a  wife - an attractive artist  named Amelia. The King  and his wife took up  residence on Vancouver  Island, where Herb launched a highly-publicized  attempt to convince the  Vancouver Police  Department that he  should be allowed to  conduct   and   "Anti  Crime" course. This  campaign ended abruptly when he was convicted  on an incongruous $2.00  shoplifting charge - his  final brush with the law  and quite a comedown  from the glory days.  Humiliated, Herb quickly moved to the  mainland where he soon  made news again by offering to buy Jacob Eps-  tein's controversial  sculpture of Christ. The  last time he made the  papers was with the  report of his death in  1968.  Yvonne and I noted  that in between Herb's  various activities he had  found time to author  several books. One of  these, Canada's False  Prophet, Yvonne  remembered reading in  the late Sixties. It concerned the notorious  Brother Twelve and the  cult of duped followers  he established on Vancouver Island in the late  Twenties and early Thirties. Herb's connection  with Brother Twelve, we  couldn't imagine at this  point.  I spoke to Wayne  Thompson, a book  dealer, and broached the  subject of Herbert Emerson Wilson. "Hell, 1  knew the guy," declared  Thompson. "He was  Brother Twelve's  brother! That's why he  wrote the book."  The information absolutely floored me.  to be continued  Gwen     In     Gibsons  Cheese talk  Historian Ivan Savers' antique clothing collection  drew a large crowd at the Arts Centre in Sechelt on  Saturday.

Bill's column dealt  specifically with age-  dating dairy products  and in particular, cheese.  I'd like to use my column  this week to respond to  Mr. Edney's comments,  For the record, I  would, never sanction  any action contributing  to waste, especially food  waste, nor do I think  that Bill Edney believes  that I would.  It was not the Consumers Association of  Canada, of which I was  National President - it  was a much more militant group than the CAC  - The Canadian Consumers Protest Association.  The Canadian Consumers Protest Association, comprised of 56  groups from coast to  coast (there was a large  one in Vanouver headed  by a Mrs. Podovinikoff),  while supporting most of  the recommendations  that the CAC had been  politely advocating for  years, succeeded in getting them acted upon.  Our successes are  documented.  Having been misled,  repeatedly, by reference  to different departments  and branches and then  back again, and by  receiving conflicting  answers to our questions, we decided that  this was no way to run a  railway, a family, nor a  business but especially  not. a federal government. We insisted upon a  one-source government  institution where consumers might be supplied  with answers to our  questions. We also insisted upon a consistent  manner of reporting to  this institution by the  various information  gathering departments.  We were successful.  We were also successful in having con-,  sumer representation  -this was done by the  establishment of the  Canadian Consumer Advisory Council which  became a reporting institution to the Department of Consumer and  Corporate Affairs.  I served on the Canadian Consumer Advisory  Council for two years.  When asked by the  Honourable Ron  Basford if I might consider   serving   another  term. I indicated that I  would providing that the  Council be given the opportunity of reporting  publically rather than to  the Department of Consumer and Corporate  Affairs. My proviso was  not met and I was not  appointed to serve  another term.  Gratifying to me  through all of this was  the emergence of many  consumer groups in all  aspects of consumer use.  Controls were instituted  to protect the consumer.  Food and drug laws were  tightened as needed and,  for a time, prices remained more or less consistent with cost.  However, big business  continues to find loopholes, conglomerates  multiply, payola  becomes less obvious  and radioactive and  other harmful substances  proliferate. Marketing  boards and futures buying, intended to benefit  sellers and buyers alike,  frequently benefit only  the members of the  aforesaid 'marketing'  boards and 'futures'  buyers.  Hindsight being better  than foresight, I am not  certain that we did much  good but we saw a problem and did our best to  resolve it.

Consumers now have  a place to call if they do  not think that the  regulatory bodies are doing their job. Unfair  practices should be  reported to the Department of Consumer and  Corporate Affairs. It is  up to us all - we have a  vehicle but it is only as  good as its operator - the  elected.  Back to Cheese, if Bill  Edney decides to sell  cheese with some mould  on it, I would have no  objection - provided the  cheese was suitably  labelled and it was a  bargain. I appreciate a  bargain as well as anyone  and I don't mind removing a little mould but I  do want know before I  buy and thus make my  own choice. Don't you?  Arts  Centre  Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre  During the last two  weeks, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt ventured into  worlds well beyond the  Sunshine Coast with the  Marilyn Monroe exhibit.  This week we return  closer to home, with an  exhibition of sculpture  by Linda Fox and paintings by Robert Jack,  August 18th - September  5th. Both artists live and  work in Roberts Creek.  Linda Fox has lived on  the Sunshine Coast since  1979, at which time her  primary interest was in  painting. After taking  several sculpture classes  at Capilano College, she  found herself hooked on  the sculpting process.  This exhibit marks the  second time her artwork  has been seen at the Arts  Centre.  Robert Jack's paintings have been seen a  number of times at the  Arts Centre, and this is  his second feature exhibit   of  watercolours.  by Rae Ellingham  Week ( ummtneing August 16.

It was an interesting  switch in perspective for  | a West Coaster, yet what  stands out in my mind  isn't the vast differences  in attitudes between here  and there. Rather, it was  as though I had never  left home.  Granted, I was hang-  ' ing out with a pretty  specialized breed: The  peace movement people,  the anti-nukers, the people that Spiro Agnew used to jeer as "radical  chic". They're still  around, even if Spiro is  politically extinct.  /America isn't really  that big a country. If it is  true that Canada is run  by roughly 200 people, it  is reasonable to guess  that the United States is  run by 2,000 top individuals. Quite a large  number of them live in  New York.  It was a joy, let me  say, to witness an  American elite at work  trying to change their  , country's destiny - and,  '. perhaps just incidentally,  ' the world's.  The same hard core of  people  who   were  the  , leaders of the movement  ' to bring an end to the  monks, fasting Episcopalians, post-Hippie Era  activists and legions of  musicians.  The most uplifting  moment, for me, occurred when I attended a  special "earth mass" at  the Church of St. John  the Divine, which is the  largest Gothic cathedral  in the world and surely  the most awesome.  The ceremoney  featured the music of  Paul Winter Consort,  which incorporates  whale and wolf sounds.  Echoing through the vast  cathedral, the music was  inspirational enough in  itself. But then came the  main event.  The sermon was  delivered by Coretta  King, the widow of Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr.  She pronounced the  words "peace" and  "justice" with a  sibilance that brought  them to life for me more  vividly than ever before.  She was very specific  about the particular  dangers of nuclear proliferation, the Bomb  escaping into the jungle,  running wild, coming  back to destroy us.  For   a   moment,   it  seemed to me that an  angel had descended into  the temple.  Beware! she cried.  You are only inches from  utter holocaust!  For the first time in  years, I felt genuine terror. It is so easy to go to  sleep, to pretend not to  see the 51,304 nuclear  weapons that surround  us.  Later, I went to a  theatre where the likes of  actress Meryl Streep, the  chap who plays Darth  Vader, and playwright  Arthur Miller said their  bits about the urgency of  the need to oppose the  arms race.  A literary agent told  me that there were  roughly 1,100 books in  the process of being  published in the U.S.  dealing with the nuclear  issue. Don't write one,  he advised me.  The message does appear to be getting  through. It's still Ban the  Bomb, but there are new  buzz-words. Practical  step-by-step methods of  actually carrying out the  process of disarmament  are being put forward.  Hallelujah!

Suncoast Players are  making a valuable contribution to the improvement of acting and  technical standards on  the coast through their  sponsorship of various  courses. With Capilano  College they are co-  sponsors of a Theatre  100 course to be offered  at the Sechelt campus.  , Ensemble Theatre,  based in Roberts Creek,  plans a busy season.  Rehearsals begin shortly  for Little Foxes by  Lillian Hellman which  will be directed by Betty  Keller and presented at  the Roberts Creek hall  early in October. Most  of the actors seen in  Ensemble's successful  production of 4 x 8 in July will be featured, as  well as some new  members of the group.  Betty Keller is well  known as a teacher of  drama and of creative  writing at both the  secondary school and  university levels. Her  most recently published  work is a biography of  Pauline Johnson. The  next production will be  Blithe Spirit by Noel  Coward, directed by  John Burnside, which  will open in late  November with a cast  consisting of members of  both Ensemble and of  the now defunct, but  highly respected, Driftwood Players.  Regular improvisation  workshops are held by  the group and work will  soon resume on an improvised look at life on  the coast which was being developed over the  winter months.  Coastal Soundwaves,  led by Lynn Vernon, at  present have a Christmas  concert planned for early  December and a major  production slated for  some time in the spring.  The ambitious programs of these groups  further emphasize the  urgent need for a performing facility on the  coast. Most of the  groups have to rely on  school gymnasium  facilities which are only  available to mount full  productions at certain  limited times of the year.  by Judith Wilson  A charming exhibition  of paintings opened on  Tuesday, August 3 at the  Hunter Gallery in lower  Gibsons. It is the second  annual exhibition of the  works of senior citizens  at the Adult Day Care  Centre run by the Sun:  shine Coast Community  Services Society. The exhibition represents many  hours of careful and patient effort on the part of  the exhibitors and their  painstaking instructor,  Pauline Lawson. In conversation with Pauline  she explained how she  works differently with  each artist in an effort to  bring out the ideas and  memories which each individual wishes to express. With some of the  painters she will work on  technique whereas with  others the emphasis is on  the expression of feelings  and reactions in paint.  The result is an exhibition of paintings in  which touches of wry  and ironic humour contrast with delicate nature studies and nostalgic  landscapes.  The biography of each  ;f>aintei,p !ttte' is 'Mso  displayed, reveals what  an achievement it is for  these artists to present  such lively and varied  works. So many of these  painters have overcome  the handicaps of failing  eyesight, arthritis and  strokes to complete pictures which are full of  joy and vigour.  Ellen Chamberlain's  studies of flowers stand  out in their vibrancy and  colour although sadly  this 92 year old ex-school  teacher has now had to  abandon painting for  knitting due to her failing eyesight. The work  of Helen Galliford shows  the close collaboration  between painter and instructor, Pauline  Lawson, for Helen is  nearly blind and several  of her paintings, which  show her delightful  humour and religious  faith, share a dual  signature which shows  Helen's debt to Pauline's  assistance. The delicate  nature studies of Esme  Graham with their rich  autumnal colouring  reveal her mastery of  technique.  The artists were entertained at a tea in their  honour on Tuesday and  were pleased to see how  impressive their work  looked on display. They  had not had an opportunity to see their paintings displayed in their  entirety before and the  exhibition gave them a  new sense of their  ^chievepiept.^he, vitality  . and joy iii life to be seen  in this exhibition is  remarkable when one  realizes that these works  were painted by people  suffering from many  physical disabilities and  who, in many cases, were  rediscovering their  creativity at a later stage  in life.  Sechelt businessmen,  Evo Marcon of Tri-  Photo and Lee Taylor of  Aero Purifications, have  initiated a fund raising  drive to help the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  purchase one of Dudley  Carter's sculptures, now  gracing the grounds of  the Arts Centre in  Sechelt.  Marcon and Taylor  have been encouraged in  their campaign by the  considerable interest  aroused in the village by  Carter's magnificent  work. Anyone who has  seen the Carter carvings  would likely agree that  they are the ideal addition to what previously  was a fairly uninspired  Arts Centre grounds.  The carvings and the  work done by the young  people on the trails and  gardens have truly made  the Arts Centre grounds  a focal point of the  village.  The five carvings currently on the site are  priced between $2,000  and $16,000. The fund  raisers hope to gather as  many donations of local  people as they can to  purchase one the works.  Contributions, which  are tax deductible, may  be made directly to the  Dudley Carter Carving  Fund at the Sunshine  Coast /Arts Centre in  Sechelt.

I wlllcnly bewpeatlng, I am sMfetwhat Is already on  the minds of a great number of citizens, and what has  already been said publicly, but I feel I must add my  voice nonetheless.  It must be abhorrent to the hijhdreds of thousands of  skilled people now out of work and seeking Jobs, many  of whom have already lost their homes, their cars, and  the other personal possessions, to see this sort of thing  happen.  I believe It reflects bad judgement and poor leadership on the part of the union. Such a strike, although  skillfully handled "to prove a point", proves to me  another point. The union is much too large and too  complex. It could, If it would, bring us to our collective  knees.  The class hatreds of Britain are being fanned here by  those whose personal ego knows no bounds. It would  indeed be tragic If the pendulum of change and time  would begin to swing to the other extreme, In which  union leadership would be looked upon as being too  powerful and too abusive. I do believe In  democratically controlled unions.  I can't quote the provincial figures off hand, but I do  have the national debt figures. Since 1976, the national debt has climbed from 23 billion to 95 billion In  1982. This year, it is estimated that a further $20  billion will be added. The interest debt alone' Is now  23% of the federal government's expenditure.  Nothing but earnest productivity and restraint,  together with better fiscal policies, can possibly turn  that around.  Laying off people to keep costs in line Is not the  answer, in my view. It lies In the willingness of all of us  to take a little less and allow more people to work.  ' 'St! *4* r?*  Most Important too Is the need for drastic reductions  in Interest rates and taxes. These things will Improve  the climate for investment and jobs.  As I went to work the other day, this scene flashed  through my mind. In Its simple terms, it Illustrates the  problem that our civic unions are faced with.  I was seeing the empty plates before a family of  youngsters of various ages, each asking Mother Hubbard, (whose cupboard was bare), if they could not  have more. Sorrowfully, she had to say - "There Is no  more".  We can each do with a little less. Let's help the  needy and those who are unfortunate through no fault  of their own. Let's share jobs. Let's get government to  cut interest, let's cut out the demand for non-essentials  and reduce taxes.

D On August 9, a joint  meeting with the Sun-  thine Coast Economic  pevelopment Commission, the executive of the  Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce, and representatives from the Har-  jjour Business Association convened to discuss  Gibsons' future, generally in terms of tourism.  N Of special interest was  a proposal presented by  rtie president of Gibsons  JMarbour Business Association, Gary Puckett.  '.' Puckett's well thought  put   proposal  encom  passes a revitilization  programme for downtown Gibsons and includes some very interesting and exciting  ideas for tourist attractions for the community,  such as a proposal for a  steamboat trip from  Vancouver's Coal Harbour to Gibsons Landing, tour bus facilities,  campground facilities,  upgraded beach facilities, to name a few.  The Ministry of  Municipal Affairs has indicated that it would  entertain a proposal  from Gibsons for inclusion in the Tourist Industry Development  Subsidiary Agreement  (TIDSA) programme  whereby funding  assistance would be provided to carry out a  revitalization programme for downtown  Gibsons.  Did you know that...  All SCRD directors  are not equal...at least  when it'comes to voting.  Although there are only  eight directors, they  represent 17 votes,  distributed according  area population. As it  currently stands, the  votes are distributed as  follows: Area A - 2, Area  B-2, Sechelt-1, Area C  - 3, Area D - 2, Area E  ���2, Gibsons - 3, and .Area  F - 2. Next year, votes  will be redistributed according to the latest census figures. So, when  four directors vote yes  and four directors vote  no, it doesn't add up to a  tie.   The  outcome  is  determined   by   the  "weight" of the vote.  .At ta   $  Royal City Antiques dressed up the Trail Bay Centre In Sechell last week wilh in  impressive show and sale. ��� mow M.ua��., pm.

New Democrat Ray  Skelly (Comox-Powell  River) recently called on  British Columbia  municipalities and  labour, business and industry representatives to  band together and form  a common front to lobby  the federal and provincial governments to immediately implement a  Canadian marine industrial strategy.  "We must develop a  strategy now",- Skelly  stressed. "Thousands of  jobs and millions of  dollars in shipbuilding  contracts are going offshore. There are 157,000  British Columbians  unemployed and we need  these jobs at home. We  simply cannot afford to  continue exporting jobs  overseas."  Skelly pointed out the  government promised a  marine industrial  strategy would be in  place last year, but no  policy has been announced to date. He added  % WRAY CONTRACTING  ���Backhoe & 4 Whd.

"Dome was recently  bailed out by the Canadian taxpayer and the  company's decision to  do business offshore is  an insult to all of us."  Skelly also called on  CP Ships, a subsidiary of  Canadian Pacific  Limited, to register its  ships in Canada and  employ Canadian crews.  "All CP Ships are  registered in Britain and  Hong Kong, The company has an 82-year  tradition of staffing its  vessels with British officers and foreign crews.  If CP employed Canadians, it would mean at  least another 1500 jobs  for Canadian seamen.  And, if CP ships were  constructed in Canada,  Canadian shipbuilders  would have thousands  more jobs." Skelly urged  the governments to meet  with the common front  and work towards the  development of marine  industrial stategy.  "We are the only in-  'dustrialized nation in the  "wofld without ;a marine  'industrial strategy. We  have a long maritime  history that is threatened  because there is no policy  to capture marine industrial benefits. Many  of our shipyards are idle  and contracts continue  to be awarded offshore  with the blessings of the  federal and provincial  governments. This must  end immediately. The  creation of the common  front is the first step.  The second step is  meeting with government officials."  NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING  THE APPLICATION  British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority ("B.C. Hydra") applied May 28, 19B2 to amend its electric and gas schedules of rates (iled  or deemed to have been filed wilh the Commission by increasing Ihe  rates which are being charged al the present time. The Application of  May 28, 1982 contemplates additional electric rate increases to yield an  overall revenue increase of approximately 7.7% in the year ending  March 31, 1982 and electric rate increases to yield a further overall  revenue increase of approximately 15.7% in the period April I, 19B3 to  March 31, 1984, both including recovery of increased water rental fees.  The Application of May 28, 1982 also contemplates increases in the gas  rates for Mainland gas service in the period April I, 1983 to March 31,  1984. The increases in gas rates which are being sought for Mainland gas  service, excluding increases in the price of purchased natural gas and ex-  luding additional taxes and charges, are intended to yield an overall  revenue increase of approximately 4.2%.

It has happened again.  In fact, it keeps happening. So much so, it's  worth writing about once  again:  Recognition that the  key to a successful  school is the principal or  headmaster/headmistress.  The Ford Foundation  set out this year to find  some urban high schools  that were, by their own  definitions, successful.  The foundation invited all the high schools  in 36 cities to nominate  themselves for awards if  they felt they had  "significantly improved  their performance during  the past decade."  Then it set out an independent panel of  educators to the more  than 140 schools that  said they were succeeding to determine if  they really were.  Four of the 16 site  visitors lunched with a  group of education  writers May 17 and  discussed what they  found to be common  among the 110 high  schools awarded a citation and $1,000.  A determination by  faculty and staff to stop  being known as a  "lousy" or "troubled"  school was one common  thread.  Another was the  students knowing what  the school was about and  feeling a part of it all.  Also, a feeling of expectancy - a "can do" attitude - and a general  feeling of pride in the  school, both its physical  attributes and its program.  But the key ingredient  - the key as to whether  the students felt  welcome, whether the  teachers felt proud,  whether the building was  abused - was, all site  visitors agreed, the principal.  In school after school  (that is, in those that  were cited for awards),  the principals were able  to address hundreds of  the pupils by name as  they passed through the  corridors.  In one school, when  the issue of how teachers  were going to be able to  keep in touch with  parents and guardians  who couldn't easily come  to the building, eight  outside-line phones were  added for just this purpose.  In most schools, the  principals told the  visitors that they regularly walked the halls;  regularly expected to  meet students in the halls  visiting with friends and  feeling at home; regularly expected teachers to  have their doors open to  relieve the tension for  those students struggling  in the academic theatre.  Principal after principal had found a way to  have administrative  chores done, so that he  or she, black or white,  could be free to mingle  with students and consult with teachers.  A reporter asked: "Is  it possible to find a good  school with a lousy principal?" The four  educators, who had just  visited about 40 schools,  had no trouble with that  question.  "No. Every good  school had a good principal."  Mortimer Adler, who  will be presenting a  dramatic plan for a  revolution at both the  elementary and the high  school levels across the  United States this fall,  came to the same conclusion that so many other  school critics have. At a  Harvard symposium he  stated: "The superintendent of schools is not the  key to a good school -for  these people the work is  administration and the  delivery of services to  school buildings.  "It's the principal who  is the key. And a principal who is busy with  administrative details  will have a poor school.  "Needed," he maintained, are "a head  teacher: a master  teacher: a teaching principal."  For those who want to  see improvement in a  local school, it would appear there is a single  place to look. If the principal is both a master  teacher and focused on  the same goals as the  community, then he or  she needs all the support  possible to make a  troubled school into a  working school.  If, on the other hand,  the principal is not a  master teacher, doesn't  love the children in the  school, hasn't a clear set  of goals and pride in accomplishing them (or  his/her goals are different from those of the  community), then take a  leaf from these education experts:  Get a new principal.  Get a good principal.  Support him or her.  by Jalk Warkman  While a member of the  audience was recording  the meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board last Thursday,  paradoxically, members  of the board were  heatedly debating the  pros and cons of officially recording the meetings  of the board.  On at least two occasions, members of the  board queried whether  or not motions made at  previous meetings were  accurately recorded in  the official minutes. In  light of this, Qibsons  mayor Lorraine Goddard recommended that  board and committee  meetings be officially  recorded.  Area F director David  Hunter questioned access to the tapes, pointing out that in the past  such tapes had been used  for nefarious reasons.  Area D representative  Harry Almond concurred and pointed out that  tapes could be tampered  with and in the past have  caused dissention in the  community. Sechelt  mayor Bud Koch's suggestion that the tapes  should be kept for six  months was not met  favourably, with other  directors suggesting that  anywhere from two  weeks to one month  would be more  workable.  Secretary-Treasurer  Larry Jardine when asked his opinion respond-  Knowledge  Network  Although there are  continuing problems  haunting the satisfactory  siting of the satellite  receiving dish which will  give Sechelt cable  viewers access to the  Knowledge Network,  Coast Cable Vision still  hopes to have the system  operational by the beginning of September. This  was the report received  last week by the Sun-  Coast Television Society.  Printed schedules for the  Fall programmes have  fallen victim to  "restraint" but there will  be some available and it  is hoped to make arrangements with the  press to run them on a  regular basis.  ed, "It is Parliamentary  practice to record what is  done, not what is said.  To go back to tape: for  verbatim (minutes)  creates problems". It  was pointed out that a  previous clerk's minutes  taken from tapes read  more like books than  minutes.

First flight low gross  winner was Phyl Hendy,  with Anne Burton capturing low net honours.  Second flight low gross  was taken by Vera  Munro. Eleanor Dann  took the second flight  low net spot. The nine  hole section played "Tic,  Tac, Toe" and count  putts. Isobel Draper captured first place with 15  points, second place  went to Aileen Pinkerton  with 11 points. Forda  Gallier toured the nine  holes using only 18 putts.  Pat Scarr, playing in a  foursome with her husband and Mr. and Mrs.  Van Allen, had the thrill  of scoring a "hole in  one" on the short over  the lake no. 8 hole last  Monday, August 9th.  Congratulations to Pat!  Wednesday Men's  Twilight had Boris Meda  collecting all the goodies.  Boris shot a blazing 35 to  pick up first place for  low gross. Don Olson  took the low net prize.  Geo. Grant used only 13  strokes for low putts  Competition.  ��� The senior men are in  the middle of a 36 hole  Competition for the Annual Senior Men's Club  Championship for 1982.  At the end of 18 holes,  Al Dean is leading the  Way with a 76 for the  first 18 holes. Ossie Hincks is sitting pretty with a  low net score of 60 with  18 holes to go. Final 18  holes will be played on  Wednesday.  I One of our senior  golfers, Jim Budd, who  js usually in contention  on our course, along  ��vith his son, Jim Budd,  Jr., journeyed to Victoria to compete against  342 teams from all of the  lower mainland, in the  annual B.C.G.A. Parent  and Child Tournament  held at Royal Colwood  Coif Course. The odd  flame of Parent and  Child is used to describe  {he tournament because  any combination of  mother or father with  son or daughter may  enter and compete for  the desirable prizes offered for the day. Jim  and Jim Jr. managed to  win fourth low net, over  all comers. Another worthwhile accomplishment  for our club members to  relish.   Congratulations  to you both.  Also competing in the  tournament was Ossie  Hincks and our club  champ, Ken Hincks,  who finished out of the  money, but will be right  there next year to compete for the Sunshine  Coast Golf Club.

Spa  support  sought  Sechelt resident David  Gillies has caught the  free-enterprise spirit  awakening in Sechelt and  is now trying to determine if now is the time to  open a health spa on the  Coast.  Undeterred by current  economic conditions,  David believes that he  can offer first class  physical fitness facilities  more effectively than  those currently being offered in the community.  He would like to see a  facility that would include weights, exercise  bicycles, hot tub,  showers, saunas etc.  He is particularly interested in finding out  how many people would  like to see this kind of  operation on the Coast  and he is looking for  partners in the venture.

Both Brice  Leigh and Shawn Cardinal!, last year's singles  winner are expected to  enter but can expect lots  of competition from the  likes of Andrew Blair,  last year's runner-up,  Brian Bannett, Robbie  Jonas and Russ Crumb  in the Men's and Zaiga, -.  Smart and Sandy Syrette  in the Ladies'.  A full slate of events  will include both Men's  and Women's doubles as  well as Mixed. And for  those who may feel that  their level of play is not  of tournament calibre  consolation flights will  be held in all events  where sufficient entries  warrant them. The entry  fee for all events is $2.50  with a special reduced  rate for any junior entrants.  T.

To be productive one  must choose priorities  carefully; an afternoon  of sun will give you time  to cut herbs and straw-  flowers. Two days of  gray drizzle means a  great slug hunt and a  careful survey of the  garden for fallen and  damaged plants. This  week I'll make suggestions for both rainy days  and sunny ones (just in  case we get a couple).  On sunny days (to  begin on an optimistic  note) harvest herbs, and  any other vegetables  such as chard, beets,  beans, potatoes. Following is a quick guide of  how and when to harvest  herbs: Basil: Cut 6-8 indies above the ground  just before the small purple flowers bloom. A second cutting may be  made later in the year.  Fresh basil is tasty in  salads, and one leaf in a  jar of canned tomatoes  adds a zesty taste. It may  Be dried or frozen.  (Notes on both these  methods appear below).  Marjoram: Cut for use  as needed during the  year; in the Fall, cut the  whole plant and hang to  dry. Mint: Cut before  flowering and hang to  dry. Mint keeps its  flavour best if frozen.  Oregano: Cut leaves and  flowering tips just as the  blossoms begin to open.  Dry quickly to preserve  flavour. The small-  leafed Creek oregano  has the strongest flavour  although it is a little  harder to grow in this  climate. Thyme: Cut  back to the woody stem  around the time the  blossoms open. Bunch  and hang to dry, or  freeze. Summer Savory:  Pull about 60 days from  seed, before flowers appear. Successive sowings  may be made and leaves  may be used from older  plants (the flavour does  deteriorate). Hang to dry  and store in airtight bottles. Sage: Cut just  before flowering. Cut  the tender younger leaves  to dry or freeze. Cut the  whole plant back to  about 8" tall in the Fall.  Use these cuttings to root  in sand in a cold frame  over the winter. Sage  plants become woody  and less productive after  four to five years.  Camomile: Collect the  flower heads when they  are in full bloom and  dry. Camomile will grow  in any good garden soil  and it spreads rapidly.  Divide every couple of  years. Catnip: Cut tops  when the flowers are fully opened. Store in a cool  dry place to preserve the  colour of the leaves.  Chives: Because they are  so easy to grow it is not  necessary to cut and dry  them. Instead, keep a  couple of pots on hand  to take in during the  winter months. Dill:  Loses its flavour when  dried. Freezing works  better. The seeds do retain a little flavour. Use  the fresh plant in pickles,  and make vinegar with  the flowers and foliage.  This will keep its flavour  the winter through.  Parsley: May be dried  for winter use although it  loses much of its flavour.  A better plan is to pot a  few husky plants from  WANTED I  Used Furniture  and What Have You  ALS USED  FUMITUM  Wc buy Brer Bottles '  886-2$12  r;  *&&-*  pfP^SP /  m - T?     rim***m   ,  X  *"*H.I  Vegetables fresh from Roosendal Farms in Pender  Harbour were big sellers at Old McDonald's Farm  Day last Saturday ia Irvines Landing.

How to Freeze Herbs:  Gather in the morning  when the dew is still on.  Wash, sort and shake  dry. Wrap in small  squares of freezer paper,  as much as is needed for  each dish in each  package. Seal with tape,  label and store in freezer.  Put each kind in a  separate bag or box for  easy finding.  Another method is,  after washing and sorting, dip in boiling water  for one minute, chilled  water for two minutes,  drain, wrap and freeze.  Herbs suitable for  freezing are sweet basil,  chevril, dill, fennel,  lovage, sweet marjoram,  parsley, sage, tarragon,  thyme. Bouquets garnis  may be made up and  frozen, using the hot  water method.  How to Collect and Dry  Herbs:  Cut on the morning of  a hot day (if that seems  impossible here, try it on  a reasonably sunny morning). As soon as the  dew is off, snip the  young growth. Tie in  bunches and hang in a  warm dry place away  from strong light but  where air circulates freely. A dryer may be used,  of course, and this is  generally more satisfactory because it is a lot  faster. If the air is too  humid for the leaves to  dry quickly, place in a  100 degree (F) oven and  leave there until the  leaves are totally dry and  will crumble easily.  Save your celery leaves  and dry for winter use in  soups and casseroles.  On rainy days keep an  eye on your larger flower  plants. Large dahlias frequently topple under the  weight of wet blossoms,  and require staking, as  do, hollyhocks and.  gladioli. Sunflowers,  tomatoes, and any other  plant with heavy flowers  or foliage should be staked. Keep the garden  cleaned; clumps of dead  leaves and blossoms not  only look unsightly but  encourage the spread of  pests and disease. Pick  off dead flowers so that  the plant can spend its  energy making more  flowers, not seeds. Don't  forget, if you have a problem, or a solution to  one, please write to me at  the Coast News. I'll be  glad to help and pass on  your information.  Farm day  winners  lMs Juk Lawrence, Burnaby  (burl dock)  lad: Violet Evans, Garden Bay  (leather jewellery box)  3rd: J.

(See Sechell Police News, right). -c~rman*-.**.  Pender pool costs discussed  when       calculating  operating   costs",   said  Area A representative  Ian Vaughan. "If they  are unwilling to make a  commitment for the pool  and want to be treated as  the tourists are, then  they should pay the rate  that the tourists pay",  A lengthy letter from  R. Mills, Secretary-Treasurer of School District  No. 46 Board of Trustees  has been received by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District objecting to the  cost per hour charged by  the Pender Harbour  Aquatic Society for the  use of the Pender pool.  . Mills' basic premise of  objecting to the $38 per  hour rate, was that the  hourly rate included  amortization of items  considered capital costs  by the school board.  Based on the school  board calculations, the  aquatic society should be  charging the school  board $30.30 per hour  (includes lifeguard).  Member of the board  of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District pointed  out at the meeting last  Thursday that just because the school board  does not include Debt  Service when calculating  operating costs, doesn't  mean it isn't standard  business procedure for  everyone else.  "The school board is  doing everything it can  to undermine the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society. I feel that the Society  was correct in its reasoning and I can't agree with  Mills that debt service  should not be included   added Vaughan.  Seniors petition  for mini bus help  GIBSONS RCMP:  Oa the 7th: The Sunshine Grocers store was  broken into in the early  morning hours. Thieves  used rocks to break a  window facing the  highway.

Gary Puckett, President of the Gibsons Harbour Business Assoca-  tion has informed the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District that the information office in Lower Gibsons has received a  number of complaints  from senior citizens in  the village who do not  understand why the mini  bus does not stop in the  lower area where a majority of them reside.  Puckett   also   noted  that requests to extend  the service from Gibsons  to Langdale to allow  people to walk on the  ferry have also been  received.  While the regional  district cannot extend the  service to Langdale at  this time, it is prepared  to recommend to the  Mini Bus Service that it  make a loop around the  parking lot at the fire  hall.  .m&   A  SV��St  rU'  js  a ll3.JSfSJiSTB.9le  ^  rixffi  jJu ��e^*T��T��S^M **V  9   to that lively, informative  *L  Sunshine mkm  Kindly print or type the name and address of the person to receive this  fine, salty epistle and please enclose your cheque for  Canada: $30.00 per year, $18.00 lor six months.

The owner of  the craft had been gone  for only a short while  when the theft occurred.  The rope used to moor  the boat had been  severed.  A dinghy was reported  missing from Thormanby Island. It is described  as a 10 foot cartop  dinghy, with a gray exterior and a green interior. It is equipped  with two oars. Some  glasses and a bench were  taken from a house on  Mason Road.  Three cabins on Francis Peninsula were  broken into. A propane  stove and tank, a propane lantern, a kerosene  lantern, two propane  cylinders and a chainsaw  were taken from one  cabin. Entry was gained  by breaking a padlock. A  20 pound propane bottle  and a lantern was taken  from another. Entry was  gained by breaking a  window.  Another cabin was  entered by breaking a  door; nothing was taken  but the cabin was messed  up by the vandals.  On the 12th: A Francis  Peninsula residence in  Pender Harbour was  broken into. It is not  known yet if anything  was stolen.  Cassettes, tapes and a  Kodak camera were  stolen from a cabin of  Lowes Resort. The objects stolen are valued at  $90. The owner reports  being absent from his  cabin for only 15  minutes when the theft  occurred.  On the 13th: Gas was  syphoned from a truck  parked at the Seaside  Rentals shop in Sechelt.  A Ford Pinto was  reported stolen. It was  parked in front of a  Mason Road residence.  Regardless of this rash  of break and entries,  Corporal Wade of the  Sechelt Detachment  described this last week  as being 'pretty quiet".  It is believed however,  that Wade has been paying a lot of attention to  his upper lip lately and is  missing some the action  at the Detachment.

This is not a new book  but a reprint of one written in 1962, however  what it portrays and the  emotions it evokes are  timeless.  The story is simple: a  seventy year old grandfather - John Vogelin  -finds his way of life, his  land and his very home  about to be taken over  by the U.S. Air Force  who want to use the area  as a missile testing range.  The old man, gentle in  the ways of nature and  steadfast in his acceptance of obvious truths  cannot accept the  demands of government  and refuses to comply  with the requests to  abandon his home. In  short, he decides to  "hold out" against the  U.S. Air Force.  He is helped in this implausible adventure by  his 12 year old grandson  - Billy - visiting him for  the summer and Lee  Mackie,  a  friend  and  neighbour revered by  Billy.  I enjoyed this book for  many reasons. It is a well  paced adventure story,  with tension filled  moments compelling you  to read on and share with  John Vogelin the events  leading to what is (according to your interpretation) his inevitable  triumph or defeat.  The characters are sensitively portrayed and it  is heartwarming to see  unfolding the interplay  of emotions and problems arising from the  three generations spanned by the grandfather,  his grandson and their  mutual friend; who  despite their differences  are bound by their love  for each other and for  the land around them.  Finally, the author, as  in his other books The  Desert Solitaire and The  Monkey Wrench Gang,  demonstrates a skill for  using words which  sharply bring out his love  for the desert land of the  U.S., his respect for all  wilderness and his deep  concern at the many encroachments upon this  land.  An excellent book for  all ages.  At the Arts Centre  August 18-September 5:  Linda Fox, Sculpture;  Robert Jack, Water-  colour.  Both of these artists  live and work in Roberts  Creek and Linda Fox, in  her first exhibit, will be  showing bronze, wood  and stone sculptures based on the human and  animal   form.   Robert  Jack has developed an  enthusiastic following on  the Sunshine Coast with  his innovative paintings  that evoke a true sense of  this place. A reception  for the artists will take  place on Tuesday,  August 17, 8:00 pm  -10:00 p.m. and  everyone is welcome.  port, where it is loaded  aboard the daily flight to  Vancouver Airport, then  it is picked up by  Vallerie's husband and is  in the Gibsons shop for  sale just a matter of'  hours after being caught.  Seafood caught in  local waters, of course, is  brought direct to  dockside in Gibsons  Harbour.  Just so she doesn't get  bored with being in the  shop all day, Angie has a  new truck fixed up for  roadside sales and can be  found about five davs a  week at various locations  talong Highway 101. Gib'  sons Fish Market has a  van on the road also, and  I have heard rumours of  yet another vehicle appearing on the road in  the near future. All this  activity is making fresh  seafood more readily  available to the public  and I hope the buying  public will support these  enterprising merchants.  Most of the numerous  new restaurants that,  have been opened on the  Sunshine Coast during  the last two years have  seafood items on their  menus. Some of these  establishments feature  seafood specials of different varieties when  they are in season. Make  sure you ask the waitress  about this, or look for a  blackboard or notice  board that may be near  the entrance. A case in  point is that quaint old-  world type inn that is  "Creekhouse" in  Roberts Creek. Truly a  place where the  discriminating diner can  spend a cozy evening for  two, or treat friends to a  pleasant outing with  good food and drink.  Old Chak-Chak took  his wife there recently to  celebrate the anniversary  of a wedding that took  place in the dim and distant past. A great evening with a special of tuna  steak wrapped in a green  leaf of Swiss chard and  seasoned with herbs.  Mrs. Chak-Chak said  her barbecued chicken  was one of the best she  has ever had. The  homemade blackberry  pie (hot) and mango  mousse was delicious.  Sea you.  Library volunteer?

Search and Rescue  raffle winners  by John Hind-Smith  The local land Search  and Rescue group held a  raffle recently. We have  realized for some time  that trying to get any  help for equipment from  the Government who are  supposed to be our  source for financing is a  lost cause so we decided  to try and do something  about it ourselves.  The draw was held at  our meeting on Wednesday, August 12 and the  winners were: 1st - Anne  Page, Sechelt - 12 Speed  Bike; 2nd - Connie Van  Swieten - Rucksack; 3rd  - Jack Phillips, Lockyer  Road - Silva Compass.  Congratulations to  them all and we hope  they get lots of use and  pleasure out of their  prizes and particularly  we thank them for their  support and everyone  else who helped us.  The money from this  raffle will be used to help  purchase much needed  equipment, for example,  rock climbing gear,  hypothermia treatment  equipment, head lights  for night searches such  as we had on the Friday  night of the Sea  Cavalcade and a loud  hailer which would also  be very useful in a situation such as that.  Everyone can rest  assured that even if they  did not win a prize, the  dollars donated will be  put to good use for the  benefit of everyone.  A regional district  public hearing was held  last Monday at the  Langdale Elementary  School, for the purpose  of giving the regional  district input from  residents on five proposed by-law amendments  in the Granthams,  Soames, Hopkins and  Langdale areas. The  three regional directors  who were present, Dave  Hunter, Harry aMmond  and Peggy Connor, and  the regional planners, led  by Jim Johnston, heard  submissions from many  of the more than thirty  people who attended the  meeting.  Considerable adverse  reaction was caused by  consideration of the proposed by-laws 103.47  and 96.85, which would  permit the long-planned  Y.M.C.A. subdivision in  the Langdale area to go  ahead. By-law 103.47  would reduce the  minimum permitted lot  size in the subdivision to  one-quarter acre.  By-law 96.85 would  allow the property to be  re-zoned to RI designation, which permits  only single dwelling  family-style homes and  excludes trailers and  mobile homes, which is  consistent with other  zoning in the area.  There were numerous  concerns expressed by  residents about the proposed subdivision.  Several felt that the planning committee of the  regional district should  not allow more lots to be  added to the market on  the Coast, which is at  present flooded with  several thousand unsold  building1 lots.  The Endowment Fund  of the Y.M.C.A., which  owns the land, had  several representatives  and engineers present, to  deal with queries from  residents. It was explain  ed that the "Y" has no  intention of placing the  lots on the market at the  moment, because of the  depressed nature of the  economy, and that only  small numbers of lots  will be released at a time  when it is feasible to  begin selling.  One major concern  was sewage disposal, as  several residents pointed  out that the soil of the  area cannot support septic tanks on lots of less  than one-third acre in  size. However, representatives of the "Y" explained that there would  be an overall treatment  plant for the whole subdivision area and, in  response to several questions, stated it would be  carefully designed and  landscaped and would be  contained within the  boundaries of the subdivision.  After several residents  had repeatedly asked  about the location of the  sewage plant, and the  comment had been made  that it seemed unnecessary to change the  zoning until the master  plan had been  developed, the "Y"  engineers unveiled the  plan for the proposed  subdivision, which they  had not initially revealed.  There was strong reaction from residents who  felt that the "Y"  representatives had given  the impression that the  subdivision was a small  one, when in fact it turned out to consist of 300  lots of one-quarter acre  size each. They felt there  were many problems  which would arise concerning traffic flow, and  provision of essential  services, such as water  and fire protection, to  such a large subdivision.  On a positive note,  several residents felt that  the "Y" planners had  done their homework  and the commercial services which would be  necessary to service such  a large subdivision,  would be of benefit to all  residents of the area.  Dave Hunter, Area "F"  representative, commented that the "Y" had  been planning the subdivision for four years  and that the regional  board had agreed in  principle to the development.  The meeting learned  that once the re-zoning  application has been approved, the regional  board has no further  control over the nature  of the subdivision. The  Department of  Highways is the approving body for roads, lot  set-out, etc. and the  Pollution Control Board  controls sewage design  and development. The  "Y" representatives  argued that since the 300  lots were controlled by  one owner, the subdivision would be developed  in a controlled and consistent manner.  Another proposed rezoning by-law which had  been requested by many  residents, concerned  several areas in Soames,  Hopkins and Langdale.  By-law 96.64 would re-  zone these areas from R2  to RI and thus, only  single family dwellings  would be permitted with  no mobile home parks or  single-wides. The aim of  the by-law is to ensure  develoment of a type  consistent with a quality  home area, which is the  desire of the residents.

McRae was adamant  that the board review the  current floor plan layout  prepared by staff to ensure that the flexibility  inherent in the strata  titles of the space at  Royal Terraces be utilized. McRae's recommendation that such a committee chaired by Sechelt  mayor Bud Koch was  ruled out of order by  Chairman Jim Gurney  after Area F representative David Hunter  pointed out that it is the  chairman's prerogative  to appoint committees.  With the support of  Area A representative  Ian Vaughan and the two  village representatives,  McRae at least succeeded  in forcing a review of the  cutrent floor plans, a  motion put forward by  Vaughan asking staff to  prepare a new floor plan  with walls conforming to  strata title lines was passed by weighted vote of  the board.  In a move of compromise, chairman Jim  Gurney met with McRae  and Vaughan on Friday  to work out a floor plan  that would be satisfactory to the board. They  will be meeting again on  Monday with a regional  district draftsman to  prepare a floor plan for  presentation to the board  next Thursday.  YOU DESERVE  A PROMOTION.
