 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARV  P.rii.men��BuiW��.gs R . c,  Victona, B.C. v��> t-*"*  COAST^NE\VaS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  May 24,1993 Volume 47 Issue 21  Hazardous waste  falling through  regulation cracks  by Derek McNaughton  While batteries, used oil, pesticides, pool chemicals or painl  spill into the Sechelt landfill  every day, bolh Gibsons and  Sechell claim Ihey are not  responsible for Ihe problem.  "Il's noi a large enough, high  priority lo bring in  anything   at   the  moment. We have       \fTg have no  no    special    ar- .  rangements. I don't Special  ment thinks "we're not a big  enough population to bother  with," she said.  Pari of Ihe problem stems  from the lack of understanding  over who is responsible for  clean up, and partly because of  Ihe huge cost in doing so, said      Dorothy Caddell,  BC's new waste  reduction commissioner. Neither federal, provincial nor  Ihink we perceive it arrangements. I municipal acts state  as a great need  said Gibsons Mayor  Eric Small, Wednesday. "We would  send it lo the dump  like everbody else."  From Halfmoon       Bay to Port Mellon,  all garbage, be it compostable,  compaclable or combuslable, is  hauled away by garbage collectors under direction from the  Sunshine Coast Regional Districl.  Coordinator Cathy Kenny  could not say how much waste  was entering the dump, whether  any of il was leaching into the  soil, or how thc Coast would  develop ils own plans for disposal. "We're doing a lol of finger pointing for sure," she said.  Often, municipalities order in  the province's 'Hazmobile,' a  heavy-duly waste disposal Iruck,  designed to cart away waste collected during local-government  sponsored "wasle weekends."  But thc hazmobile is a,problem  if special ferry arrangements  cannot be made.  Although the SCRD has  never sponsored a waste weekend, said Kenny, new waste  plans are being drawn. And  there is some recognition of Ihe  problem. Sechelt has tried to  order the hazmobile on Ihree  occasions, said Mayor Nancy  MacLarty. But the BC govern-  don't think we  perceive it as a  great need  -Uric Small  who is supposed to  be in charge of hazardous waste, she  said. Though ultimately, she said,  "everyone should be  ___________   responsible."  Caddell added  she was alarmed al Mayor  Small's refusal to perceive  household hazardous waste as a  current problem. "When you  live in a part of the country as  beautiful as Ihe Sunshine Coast  ��� a treasure for British  Columbians," she said, "we  have to be concerned about the  legacy we leave behind. We  have to think about the future."  Caddell, 41, is spearheading  a three-pronged attack on waste  in BC. Green taxes, deposit systems and or industry levies are  three plans she intends to recommend to Environment Minister John Cashore.  "We've got a lot of people  looking after the environment,  and a lot of them are not looking  after il very well," she said.  "The environment does not cast  off the waste it accumulates.  One of these days something is  going to give."  A few examples of household  hazardous waste are: lighter  fluid, turpentine, bleach, household cleaners, gasoline, rat poison and batteries, such as those  found in flashlights or radios.  Former "AAA" pitcher Brian Clark watches the delivery at the first of two pitching classes held  at Brothers Park Saturday for minor ball players. Joel Johnstone photo  Search, rescue saves distressed boaters  by Derek McNaughton  With their ship snagged by  rocks in the Georgia Strait east  Gower Point, three men called  for emergency help Tuesday,  launching a massive search and  rescue which involved RCMP,  the Coast Guard and the Canadian Air Force.  Four Coast Guard ships  including a Hovercraft, along  wilh a Labrador helicopter and a  'Buffalo' fixed-wing plane,  scoured the shores with search  lights and flares after 911 operators received the 11 pm distress  call. "The boat was takin' on  water. Whenever someone's in  distress, we just launch," said  CAF captain Dave Mansi.  The men were found about  two hours later, and no injuries  were reported. Several reports  by marine radio operators and  rescue people on the scene said  alcohol was involved, but  RCMP determined no charges  could be filed.  The owner of the boat "had  an odour of an alcoholic beverage on his breath," said investigating RCMP officer Dave Clinton, "but that's not to say he was  necessarily the driver." As well,  said Clinton, a "statutory presumption" prevents police from  giving a breathalyser test whenever more than two hours has  elapsed after an incident. The  two-hour bridge, he said, is  called a "variance gap."  Total cost for the rescue  could amount to more than  $50,000, said officials. RCMP  remind boaters that drinking and  boating is the same offence as  drinking and driving under the  Criminal Code.  Homing  in on  pivotal  OCP  issues  by Charles Hart  Some people may gel excited  aboul Ihe prospect of a town-  house or duplex designation in  their single-family residential  neighbourhood, others may be  less than thrilled with a multi-  family housing vision for the  waterfront, still others may  object plans to take land out of  the Agricultural Land Reserve  for commercial development.  A new community plan is  always controversial and Gibsons municipal officials expect  to hear some spirited debate  around those ideas in the town's  revised draft. But for the bulk of  the 100-page document, which  includes detailed policies for  development permit areas,  council and staff appear relatively confident lhat an overhaul  in the last 16 months has made  adjustments that reflect community views put forward at a public hearing on the first draft in  January 1992.  Al a media briefing Thursday, Mayor Eric Small stressed  the new draft has been completely rewritten, and he urged  people to attend open houses  Wednesday and Thursday (May  26, 27) in the Marine Room lo  comment and ask questions  about the plan's direction. If  people have objections. "It's a  lot better for all of us if it's  brought up at the open house,"  said Small. "Then we'll have  time to debate it and react lo it."  Planner Susan Stratis, who  has had a major hand in reshaping the plan since joining town  staff in November, acknowledged that the previous draft  "exceeded in many ways the  authority of the Municipal Act.  The flavour was more idealistic  before," she said, "and in some  cases unlawful."  Stratis touched on some of  the key policies of the revised  plan, from the town's point of  view, during a two-hour presentation at town hall. Chief among  those is a reduction in the overall scale and density of housing  compared to the last plan. With  the limited land base of the  municipality, Stratis said she  believes an ideal population size  would be in the range of about  8,000 to 10,000 people.  turn to back page  Environment  recommendations  loom for marina plan  by Jane Seyd  A formal recommendation on  Ihe proposed Wilson Creek  marina development is expected  from a federal environmental  task force within the nexl two  weeks.  Berni Claus, an  assessment officer  with Environment  Canada, said it will  then be up to the  Coast Guard to  make a final decision on whether the ���������  project should go  ahead as planned.  Most recently, environment  officials met with developer Art  McGinnis of Panorama Construction to discuss more technical information and visited the  marina site on Wednesday.  Claus said he also met with  some community groups,  including members of the Wilson Creek Ratepayers who have  raised concerns about the pro-  In an earlier preliminary  review this spring, Claus stated  thai the potential effects of the  development on the environment would be unacceptable  because of anticipated losses of  fisheries and  wildlife habitat.  Environment       In   particular,  ��� ,  ,     .... environment offi-  ojjtcials visited cials have ^n con.  the marina site  ��rned   about   a  _   .        . planned lock system  on Wednesday   viot the  m/rinai  _-_-���_-_-_-_-__-___-_.   which would raise  the tidal level permanently higher.  Since the initial report, some  changes have been made to the  marina proposal, which include  modifying some water levels to  accommodate salmon. An  enhancement program will also  be run at the marina site under  the authority of the Sechelt Indian band hatchery.  The plan for the lock system  has not changed, though.  turn to page 3  Teaching students games as tools for co-operation  by Darah Hansen  Who could forget those long  days of summer when, as a kid,  you would play those silly kid  games from sun up to sun down.  Remember marbles, red rover,  scrub, four-square, yards, kick-  the-can...?  They were the games that  didn't lake a lol of equipment or  time to organize. They were just  fun, requiring only cooperative  interaction between children.  But teachers have noticed a  disturbing trend on school playgrounds over the last two  decades - kids are forgetting how  to play.  "Somehow TV, videos and  video games have taken the  place of all those things we used  to do as kids. It (marks) a slow  process of losing that community feeling of caring and sharing,"  said Sechelt Elementary teacher  Brian Johnson.  Johnson is part of a team of  teachers at the elementary school  who have made several successful attempts to bring back the  games to the children.  The initiative for the program  came after teachers began to  note regular incidents of problem behaviour between students  Braeden Camposano and Sechelt  play at Trail Bay.  at noon hour and recess, said  Johnson.  "They just didn't know how  to share and cooperate to the  extent we wanted them to. They  would chase and tease each  other... they just weren't playing," he said.  But Johnson said the teachers  Elementary students learning to  Joel Johnstone photo  weren't willing to watch the  community feeling inspired by  positive interaction slowly  erode.  "We thought, we teach them  to read and write, why can't we  teach them games? We can teach  them to have as much fun as we  did when we were kids.'"  So for 15 minutes before  every recess, students, ranging  from kindergarten to grade 7.  were taught the games of old -  all the games the leachers could  remember. "I think some of us  had to dig (to remember)," said  Johnson, adding a lot of the rules  came right back..."we just  played them so much as kids."  And there is evidence the program is working, he said.  "They're actually doing it.  They're actually out there playing the games...They love it.  "Even the kids we didn't  expect to buy into the program  are saying things like 'I'm trying  to stop myself from bugging  other kids.'"  Johnson said recorded incidents of problem behaviour is  noticeably down at the school  though he credits this success  only partially to the game-learning. He said the school's self-  management program, which  rewards students for positive  actions towards each other, has  much to do with the change.  No one is expecting Ihis to  end all the problems between  students, Johnson said, "but it  certainly makes in-roads...the  school has calmed right down." iviay  WEST VANCOUVER POLICE DEPARTMENT  NOTICE  HORSESHOE BA Y PARKING  Commencing June 01, 1993, NEW PARKING  REGULATIONS will come into efTcct in Horseshoe Hay.

Ross Switzer, a lawyer for International  Forest Products, said lhe hearing date has  been deferred until June 8 in the hopes lhat  an out-of-court settlement can be reached  between the company, regional directors and  the Ministry of Forests.  Recently, court proceedings were revived  after Interfor gave the local governmenl two  weeks notice of its plans lo start logging a  contentious 15-heclare cutblock in the  watershed soon.

Meanwhile, regional directors were  adopting a wait-and-see attitude towards discussions wilh thc company.  In order for ihe court action to be  dropped, "we'd probably have to start talking about whether these eutblocks will go  ahead," said Roberls Creek director Brett  McGillivray.  Directors may also be asking for support  in their bid lo get a Crown Lands' lease on  Ihe watershed - which would  give Ihem  much more control over logging in the  Chapman.  Recently, several regional directors met  wilh John Cashore, environment minister, in  Victoria to discuss their proposal.  "While it's something new at Ihis point in  time it's not something Ihe provincial governmenl isn't thinking of," said director Jim  Gurney.  So far, the Forest Service has said various  eutblocks in the watershed - including 202 -  are safe lo log under controlled conditions.  Bul regional directors have said they  don't agree with that and maintain lhat logging has already threatened waler quality  through slides Ihey say have caused excessive turbidity levels.  Pender man remains missing   Coast  forest  council  Police are slill slumped as to  ihe whereabouts of a Pender  Harbour man who wenl missing  last Monday (May 10).  Staff Sgt. Cam Reid of the  Sechelt RCMP detachment said  a search has been on-goini; for  Harold R. Tibb, 86, since he  was last seen in Sechell after  paying a visit lo his seriously ill  wife at Si. Mary's hospital. At  the time of his disappearance,  Tibb was reported by friends lo  be in a depressed stale due to  the condilion of his wife's  heallh.  Reid said search teams have  combed the Coast's shorelines  in search of the missing man lo  no avail.  Police boals have also been  brought out as part of the search  as well as a police tracking dog.  Logging company to replace  herbicides with herbivores  by Darah Hansen  International Forest Products  is putting away its herbicides  this year and turning to the  experts to manage the growth of  brush on replanted forestry sites  of the Sunshine Coast.  Three^ hundred sheep are  expected lo begin their "silviculture work for Interfor within the  next two weeks - complete with  shepherd, and several sheep  dogs.  The process is called 'sheep  browsing' and has been tested  in other areas of the province  though it is the first time it's  been undertaken on Ihe Coasl,  said company silviculturalist  Bill l.asula.  Lasuta said the sheep will be  brought out to browse over 54  newly reforested hectares in the  Wilson Creek area when Ihe  brush starts growing.  The young trees are protected, he said, as the sheep palate  prefers Ihe brush.  Lasuta said the pilot project,  though small this year, could  expand if it proves cost-efficient  and effective.  The pilot project  could expand if it  proves cost-efficient  and effective'  In comparison to manual  brush removal, sheep browsing  runs at a similar cost, averaging  $450 to $500 per hectare.  Herbicide treatment remains  the most cost-effective method,  Lasuta said, estimated at $250  to $300 per hectare. He added  Inlerfor is still interested in the  sheep browsing projecl because  of ils obvious "environmental-  friendliness."  The Coast sheep browsing  program has passed the guidelines set by several provincial  governmenl agencies including  the Ministry of Forests, and the  Ministry of Environment, Lands  and Parks.   -  Among other, concerns,,  these guidelines maintain control over the heallh and welfare  of the sheep, camp conditions  and grazing areas.  Dr. Paul Martiquet, medical  heallh officer for Ihe Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit, confirmed Thursday his office has  also given the new silviculture  technique a clean bill of health.  Martiquet made the comment in  reference to concerns that diseases contained in sheep feces  could potentially contaminate  drinking waler courses.  But in this case, he said,  "These are healthy animals. We  are assured there are no  pathogens."  h>'   "*.

Entitled The Forest Resource  Council, Ihe association was  spawned four months ago from  an initiative by former district  forest manager, Barry Mountain,  who resigned las! year amid  allegations he had misused Iravel expenses.  "We're just ordinary people,  from one end of Ihe Coast to  another," said FRC director  Harry Almond. "We're not just  going to jump in and tell people  what to do." Almond said he  witnessed heavy conflicts  between environmentalists and  loggers while he was involved  with the Local Resource Use  Plan, a Ministry of Forests con-  .SUltjnj,. gpup.

Almond insists the council  has no agenda. He said he .  sought representation from  ratepayers' associations from  West Howe Sound to Egmont  and has asked for a member  from the Sechelt Indian Band.  The community associations,  he said, will appoint whomever  they want, and if that means  some have strong preservation  or logging interests, fine. "But at  least ihey won't be fanatics; we ,  hope it will balance oul."  Yet can a select group of ;  political people make objective ;  land-use decisions without bias j  or personal interest?  "We're trying to keep away ;  from being biased," said .  Almond. "Some of Ihe people .  will have their own agenda. It's ;  an experiment..."

Of those, about  23,000 were barged up lo Jervis  Inlet in tanks aboard the Inlet  Raider and released off Egmont  Point.  Fish released off Egmont  were lagged in tile nose and had  Iheir adipose fins clipped so the  hatchery can track the differences in survival rates between  those salmon and others released  in Maclean Bay.

AND SAVE SOME DOLLARS.  by Jane Seyd  The controversial Pender Harbour landfill  received a reprieve from the governmenl this  week - and Ihe community now has two  more years to sort out how it's going to deal  with ils garbage.  Ron Driedger, of the waste management  branch in Victoria, said he has approved a  two-and-a-half year extension to the current  permit, which had been scheduled lo run out  in a month. That means the Pender landfill  can operate until the end of December 1995  - the same date a solid waste management  plan must be completed by the SCRD.  Jane Reid, regional director for the area,  said the decision means residents will have a  greater say in future waste management  plans involving Pender Harbour.  "I think he recognized it's vital to have  community support to achieve these goals,"  she said."... (in the past) the communily felt  they had not been given consideration."  As a condition of the permit extension,  the regional district must monitor the landfill  leaehate and submit a plan detailing how any  toxic elements will be treated or diverted  from water courses. An attendant to monitor  what goes into the dump will also be  required eight hours a day for five and a half  days each week.  Panorama, band consultants defend lock system  from page 1  "We negotiating," said  McGinnis. "There's some pretty  gross misunderstandings on (the  environment officials') part  ...What we're proposing has  never been done in western  Canada before." McGinnis said  biological consultants for  Panorama Construction and the  Sechelt Indian Band still feel the  lock system is environmentally  sound, despite comments from  environment authorities.  He added he's confident  there   will   eventually   be  approval of the marina, although  no work will now be possible  this year: "We've missed the  window already."  The projecl - a joint venture  between Panorama and Ihe  Sechelt band - is projected to  cost $19 million and take five  years to compiele.  Meanwhile, McGinnis said  he's been frustrated that early  environmental reports from the  company weren't responded to  by government agencies.  "There's a lot of innuendo  flying around," he commented.

A decent, sensible and achievable goal, given incentives, grants for recycling and transportation, and appropriate regulations.  It's doubtful that the Coast will achieve it. however.  The Pender landfill has been granted an extension for  another two years and the dilemma of whether to build a  new landfill to provincial standards or use a transfer station in a Coast-wide waste management plan has still to  be resolved.  And unlike other BC communties where landfills are  reaching the end of Iheir life and the current cost of alternatives is being explored, the Sunshine Coast seems to  languish in the belief that the Sechelt dump has an unlimited lifespan, that the condition of the landfill will be tolerated by the environment ministry forever, and that it is  acceptable to dump whatever we want into it.  The problem conies more sharply into focus when you  turn to the issue of hazardous waste. While the province  presses ahead with regulations about regular household  garbage, the most toxic substances - acids, corrosives,  pesticides and chemicals, continue to pour down drains  and leach into soil and water through outdated landfills  without any leaehate collection system.  There are regulations about hazardous waste, but they  are not supported by a service system, yet alone any way  to enforce them.  Even in places such as Nanaimo, where the environment ministry has a waste depot, only one day a month is  set aside for residents across the whole central Island to  drop off hazardous substances. Moreover, the ministry  prefers that the arrangement is not widely known because  it simply doesn't have the staff or equipment to handle  the volumes of waste that would come pouring in if the  population abided by the regulations.  And we're a long way behind even that inadequate  option on the Sunshine Coast. There's a ferry separating  us from the Vancouver waste depots, no provision for  safely transporting hazardous waste, and the government's option of a Hazmobile' has never set tire to Coast  roads. Coast MLA Gordon Wilson lobbied the government about the issue early in his tenure, but it appears to  have slipped through the cracks of the former opposition  leader's political agenda. * -  Indeed, by all accounts, the whole issue seems to have  slid into a mire of jurisdictional sludge that will take  years to clean up. Just like the toxic waste we continue to  dump into our landfills without a seeming care.  Rescue missions  Unlike other emegency services, such as ambulance  and mountain patrols, in which abusers who contribute to  their own misfortunes may be billed for rescue costs,  financial responsiblity for such accidents at sea carries no  such penalty.  Yet the costs of a full-scale rescue, involving military  helicopters, aircraft and Coast Guard vessels, are astron-  imical. The nation's military budget continues to fly in the  face of the country's dire financial woes, bloated further  by rescue costs that should be offset by demanding  accountability for abuse.  Clearing the air  over Tuwanek  It was with considerable concern I read the article by Derek  McNaughton (May 10, 1993)  regarding the burn application in  Tuwanek.  While accustomed to the  imaginative and emotional  rhetoric of Linda Williams, I  was disappointed the Coast  News would print such an article without confirming a few  facts.  Hopefully the following will  help "clear the air".  1. The Tuwanek sile has been  a logging operation since at  least 1935.  2. Twelve years ago Jackson  Bros, voluntarily moved the  burning away from the water  and installed a blower system  which was optional and above  existing requirements of the  day.  3. This system has been  maintained and improved.  4. Previous permits allowed  burning for seven four day periods during the calendar year. In  1992, Interfor exercised this  option a total of two times.  Interfor did not receive one formal complaint on either of these  occasions.  5. Interfor has not burned any  debris since May of 1992. The  intended third burn in November was cancelled due to a  mechanical failure in the blower  system.  6. Inlerfor has not burned any  debris in 1993 pending resolution of the permit issue.  7. Mr. McNaughton did not  reveal the entire contents of die  interview. My comment on the  harmful effects of smoke is  taken out of context. What was  said is there have been no studies on how much smoke, and  what effects, if any, result from  our burning activities as they  relate to Tuwanek.  Interfor accepts and enforces  its corporate and community  responsibility, is a member of  this community and has demonstrated its environmental commitment in all its operations.  MIKE BELL  Operations manager, Interfor  Select logging  alternatives  If more potential and present  residents would act as responsibly as the Clarke family in  Roberts Creek to the special  environment we have, it would  not be difficult to maintain it.  When this family needed to  log a portion of their property  recently, they approached the  community planning committee  and then hired Barry Pearson to  selectively log the required area.  This way the community was  prepared when the trees began  to fall. The logger is an ecologically attuned person, thus the  trees were logged carefully and  all debris was buried in the  ground and filled in to compost  and new trees were immediately  planted to replace those lost.  As a neighbour I wish to congratulate them on their responsible actions toward our community and other nature..  HELEN ROY  Roberts Creek  Knowledge  and power  Years ago, didn't someone  wise say that "knowledge is  power?"  In her column last week,  Roxanne Gregory suggested that  there are real needs of women  on the Sunshine Coast that are  being left unaddressed.  The 'Creative Living for  Women on a Limited Income'  series of 12 workshops was  labelled as nothing more than a  band-aid solution.  I support the Women's  Resources Society which is  offering the series fo ALL interested women on the Coast. I can  also elaborate on two of Ihe programs which plan to focus on  some of the real needs .of the  participants. Workshops five  and six are 'Good Food, Good  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 460  Gibsons, B.C.  V0N1V0  Fun' and 'The Community  Kitchens Cook-in'.  The Good Food, Good Fun  highlights include a brainstorming of how to encourage our  children to eat well, a supermarket tour, the challenge of buying  into good eating, a rate what  you ale exercise and a lighl look  al fun foods.  The next session offers a  Community Kitchen cooking  experience. This invites participants to plan and cook several  meals lo take home to their families.  We have a success story in  our community: Ihe community  kitchen group have evolved  goals for themselves which  include much more than simply  cooking together and receiving  food once a month.  They are exploring creative  budgeting, communication  skills, generating ideas for  resources, time management and  fundraising, at the same time  .they are updating, Iheii; knowledge and organizational skills.  The sixth workshop, then  offers particpants a taste of the  Community Kitchen group  experience.  Real needs that can be supported through these programs  focus on self-responsibility, pro-  action, skill building, creative  time and money management,  team building and a belief in  one's self-worth.  And these are only two of the  12 workshops.  I suggest thai the Empress  wears much more than band-  aids. Ms. Gregory needed to do  more research into the series of  workshops before writing her  re-active column. Cannot  knowledge become power?  DANIA MATIATION  Community Nutritionist  More things to know about our new free trade partner  We arrived in San Miguel de Allende on a Sunday afternoon. When we made our figure-of-eight  traverse of Mexico in 1989 San Miguel was the  centre, or crossing point, and we stopped there  twice.  For both of us it was our first visit in late  Spring. The first thing we noted was [he flowering  jacaranda not seen in bloom before. The magnificent flowering purple trees take your breath away  on first sight, even without the sunshine and blue  sky, the flowering bougainvillea in their variety of  astonishing colours, the palm trees and the \ariety  of flowering cactus.  Suddenly the hardships of the way all seemed  worth while.  San Miguel is a colonial city dating back to  1542. The streets are narrow and cobblestoned. the  architecture Spanish. It is a place of formidable  charm, a mecca for Mexicans as the birth place of  the Senor Allende after whom it is named and a  haven for expatriate North Americans for more  than half a century.  Fifty thousand people live in its crowded narrow streets on a sunlit hillside in Central Mexico.  We arrived from a direction new to us and plunged  into a section of town we didn't know on streets  not designed for automobiles.  Not for the first time in Mexico, I gave thanks  musings  John burnside  that I was driving nothing more unwieldy than a  Volkswagen van.  The best things when you travel, in my experience, are never planned. We gave little thought to  our arrival time but nothing could have been better  than Sunday afternoon. We had time to nuke our  arrangements then stroll up the hill to lake our  places in the wonderful Mexican custom of Sunday  night at the jardin(pronounced hardeen), or town  square.  These are wonderful places these jardins, in  effect the living room of the entire town.  The jardin in San Miguel is a particularly fine  one with a number of sculpted, heavily foliaged  uees in which tbe urracas of the town roost at sunset.  These birds are like the magpies familiar to us  in Canada except they have no white. A seasoned  San Miguelite informs me that they are not, however, magpies but boat-tailed grackles.  They fly in their hundreds as the sun begins to  set against the pink stone of the parroquia, or  parish church, to take up their roosts for the night.  For a time as they settle down their mass chirping  competes well with the music and the hundreds of  people who make iheir way to the jardin on Sunday evenings.  Motorised traffic is firmly regulated by youthful  traffic officers and on Sunday night it is usually  hopelessly stalled in the aimiable chaos that is  Mexico. There is a ceaseless flow of people walking around the jardin.  Finding a seat on one of the many benches is a  difficulty. If you can't find one there is the low  stone wall bordering the squaie on all four sides; or  you can join the hundreds simply strolling through  the soft night air around and around tbe uees and  the birds and the music on the bandstand which is  a tradition on Sunday nights.  It is a people place extraordinaire and the contrast of this happy congregation in all their rich  variety stands in stark contrast with some of the  unhappier aspects of the North America we have  just left. One walks away from the jardin in the  middle of this Mexican town in tbe dark, down  poorly-lit streets no wider than alleyways and the  only embarrassment is in passing young lovers in  the darker places.  One would not dare to saunter after dark down  such dim lit alleyways in any of the American  cities we have come through and there are parts of  Vancouver, too, down which it would be foolish lo  walk in lhe dark.  But don't let me get too far down those alleyways yet. We must return to the jardin for there is  something there which is beautiful, which is Mexico, and which I am struggling lo say.  There are grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers and young children.  The children, dressed in their Sunday best, are  running and playing in happy peace amongst the  crowds of aimiable adults. Fathers proudly carry  babies, everybody radiates delight or content.  There is a shy and touching ardour between  young lovers, chaste and intense and rarely seen  where we live; ihe unattached young parade and  flirt and hope their privale hopes.  We may have much lo contribute to a new partnership with Mexico. We have also much to leam  about living together in the peace and joy we seem  somehow to have lost. To be in its presence during  its finest manifestation in the Sunday night jardin,  even as a visitor, is to tingle with an ancient, half-  forgotten delight.  naMWaaa  PetTaaop  COAST^NEWS  Subscription Rapes for  Ihe Coatt Nmn or the Wediendee:  1 year .

Gatherings of  loggers have become, almost  traditionally now, pretty hearty  affairs and have not always, so  far as I know included poetry.  The meeiing was held in a  place called Silver City, on a  flank of Mount St. Helen's, not  all thai far from the border with  Oregon. It is logging country  alright and probably where the  legends of the giant logger Paul  Bunyan and his big blue ox  Babe first began and so some  poetry there as well in these  days might seem a legitimate  thought.  It is noi, of course, the kind  of logging of today that is being  remembered and celebrated at  these get-togethers. It is a kind  of logging that seems almost  suddenly now something oul of  history.  Quite young people, well  young at least to me, are coming  up with personal anecdotes and  making it clear that these are  from 'the old days'.  It is indeed a very short time  from when the woods, given the  kind of logging being pursued,  seemed almost inexhaustible. II  was not that eyes were closed to  Ihe potential of over-logging. It  was very much front and centre  in '56, for example, when a firsl  documentary film was made  about it. It was just that everything seemed altogether manageable.  Sure the companies were get-  ling bigger and huge tracts for  potential cutting were getting  bandied about, but the operations themselves were mostly  relatively small cutting crews,  with donkey engine and rigging  from the days when the navy  was still under sail.  Logging was of course, a  way of life and personal stories  of the days before mechanization still abound on this Coast.  Stories of monster logs whirling  down at you out of the mist and  spar Irees breaking, and cables  snapping, and assaults on almost  impossible slopes.  Small wonder, then, that ex-  loggers find a ready brotherhood among themselves, on  either side of the border. In fact  the line between BC and Washington probably means a good  deal less among loggers than it  does to the two governments.  Loggers logged on either side,  drifting back and forth and the  notion of 'Cascadia' is often not  one that gives them any trouble  at all.  Nonetheless, there is a difference which is not just the feeling up here that logging on our  mountains was a good bit  tougher than logging down  there. There do not seem to be  any connections between associations of loggers in the states  in a nutshell  OMEGA  HOME DELIVERY 886-4��2'4��1  and associations, if any, here.  When Peter Trower went down  last week his was perhaps going  to be the first voice of a Canadian logger poet to have been  raised among their rugged citizenry.  Things were not the way he  expected. There was an unusual  decorum over all, for a logger's  festival at least. There was an  enthusiasm everywhere for 'logger poetry'. And just about  everyone had been 'born again'.  Peter of course, is primarily a  poet who has been a logger,  rather than primarily a logger  who can make rhymes. He was  in the old art/folk art situation  and from the start he was pretty  steeply in.  These were brother loggers  no doubt, and they gathered in  Silver City from Alaska and  hither and yon, and he was happily a member in the best standing, but brother poets on the  other hand they simply weren't.  Peter found that he was being  referred to as 'the Canadian',  and began to feel a bit like some  sort of delegation of one. There  stuart nutter  was no way anyway he was  going to appear to come over  the rhymes with his poetry. He  selected the stuff he was going  to read with care.  What he says, though, is that  when ihey gol up on the stage  and spoke the lines that had  looked so crudely on the page it  had a lot of strength and humour  and it seemed all for real; and  poetry is memorable speech.  The other dimension in the  situation was the 'born again'  dimension, which permeated Ihe  whole.  Peter doesn't remember there  being any of this great believing  among the workers in the  woods, but he exchanged books  with a fellow member and the  one he got has a cover which  shows a logger at the top of a  tree and a rainbow from there up  to what has to be the pearly  gates.  Born again loggers perhaps  don't die. The trumpets blow for  them, they cross to the other  side, they are caught up into the  bossom, they join the elect; and  why not, and so good on them.

Increase taxes and increase revenues and somehow we'll all  live happily ever after. Only in  Ihe fairy tales does this scenario  ring true.  Bud Koch started the ball  rolling when he amalgamated  the outlying districts of Sandy  Hook, Davis Bay and West  Sechelt into one taxation district  in order to "increase the tax  base" of Sechelt. The hopeful  offshoot of this endeavour was  lhat by increasing the tax money  available, Sechelt would be able  to provide more services. The  odd plaintive whine emanated  from the backwoods that this  plan would not work.  Increased costs of governing  a larger municipality would  more than devour any increase  in revenues. Seven years later  the taxpayers in the amalgamated districts are just starting to  understand the ramifications of  this fateful event. Taxes are  steadily increasing, the size of  government in Sechelt has  expanded enormously, and services to the outlying areas have  not changed one iota.  The residents of Sandy Hook  are fed up with being viewed as  the "poor country bumpkins"  and are demanding some action.  Mayor M. has obviously designated their concerns to the compost bin as she proclaims in the  Coast News to have a "green  mentality". At least she is not  littering Ihe highways as Sandy  Hook residents do when their  cars involuntarily leave the  "perfectly safe" road and end up  resting against a tree.  Mayor M. further states in  the same article thai development is necessary because "We  need Ihe tax base". Same old  song, just a different drummer.  Increasing density brings with it  increased costs to service the  increase in density. The biggest  growth industry resulting from  this is in government. The needs  of the population are not being  met with the current tax base  and it is absolute folly to suggest that further development  will rectify the situation.  Residents in West Sechelt are  next in line to see their rural  community debased by development in order to feed the government trough. Mac and Bio  has its sights set on developing  a large property smack in the  heart of our community and forever changing the character of  our area. Residents hoping that  perhaps an OCP will provide  strict guidelines for development are dreaming. OCPs are  not worth the paper they are  written on. Mayor M. clearly  admits that council can vote to  override an OCP at any time.  "Zoning laws are made to be  changed" Mayor M's gem of the  week. With elected representation like that, who needs enemies?  The time for residents to  stand up and be counted is now,  before Sechelt is turned into a  vinyl-village Surrey. Mayor M.  is trying to lull residents of  West Sechelt into a false sense  of security about this issue by  staling that she feels lhat the  MacBlo development is years  away. It may take years to finalize all the stages of the entire  plan but Mac and Bio is going  to ask for rezoning forthwith.  Residents of West Sechelt  must start with formulating an  OCP which maintains the quiet,  rural nature of our community  and then electing representatives  who are going to stand behind  the wishes of the populace.  The future is now and I, for  one, do not like the way it is  heading but I am prepared to  fight to maintain a quality of life  for my community that is fast  disappearing.  EVA TRIPP  Sechelt  Slang, taboos and  free expression  I think Doug Dickson was  really talking about pussy cats  in his poem and not utilizing  'pussy' as the taboo slang well  adjusted, normal people never  think of on Iheir own. I know  this gentleman and he is so  straight he squeaks. More than  lhat, there are over a thousand  males in Gibsons far more dead  ly to the female sense of self  image than Doug could ever be.  Doug is a very serious person, definitely not prone to  frivolity and although he is the  nicest guy in the world, I challenge anyone outside his immediate family who has ever seen  him laugh in public to come  forth. He is just not the kind  who would write such a thing.  About pussy cats yes, but about  women, no.  And while we are on the  topic of double meanings, let's  discuss D.H.' Lawrence's "The  Snake" or some of Edgar Allan  Poe's drug induced fantasies.  Oh, and let's not forget the  "Biichin' Post" with its vast circulation of 120 some odd subscribers and whose editor coin-  cidentally lives precariously  near a pulp mill.  If a guy was editor of that  paper he would probably be  strung up by the most painful  method just so he could  empathize with the plight of  Cosmopolitan Woman. Did anybody ever see Sammy Davis  Junior in the "Scapegoat"? It is  a graphic depiction not too dissimilar to what is happening to  poor old Doug just because  someone ends up in the wrong  place at the right time and the  world turns topsy turvy.  And I mean, 120 people are  really going to dent Doug's far-  reaching reputation by trying to  make him Colonel Of The Urinal. Come on, give me a break.  He might even owe her money  if she makes him well known  enough.  All joking aside, this ongoing  soap opera of events is in reality  a thinly veiled, flagrant attack  on free expression and leans  more toward ignorance than  enlightenment, clear and conclusive proof that we need to  improve our standard of education in this province simply in  order to learn to communicate.  People have died for Ihe right  for any pillar of the community  to write whatever one likes and  when two of them do, one gets  offended and the other sues.

In 1984 her freshly  born grand daughter, Laura, was  diagnosed wilh Cystic Fibrosis  ��� a chronic disease acquired  during fetal development affecting ihe pancreas and causing  digestive and pulmonary disorders.  Children and adulls wilh CF  suffer from plugged noses and  clogged lungs, which are always  prone to infection, and must eat  ���pedal enzymes to keep a proper level of nutrition. Physical  therapy and careful attention to  the CP child is always required.

The conference  was organized and  attended by 10/10  drop-out prevention  groups. "The idea  behind the name  10/10 is thai for  every 10 sludenis  who start school, 10 _____  finish," said Elphinstone counsellor Leslie Berends.  All province and territories  across Canada had schools participating, and each school  brought two 10/10 group members, one person who had  dropped oul then returned and  one person who was thinking  about leaving school.  "I think thai the conference  was really helpful." said 10/10  member Crystal Fergus. "There  was one girl al Ihe conference  who'd dropped oul of school  after being kicked oul of her  school board notes  All province  and territories  across Canada  had schools  participating  house and having a baby, bul by  Ihe end of Ihe conference she'd  decided lo go back, il was really  great."  Students attending Ihe conference were split into groups  with their peers from all over  the country working  together lo generate  ideas   about   new  ways of keeping kids  in school. "There  were quite a few  good ideas, (one person! thought schools  should  have  peer  _______    counsellors who hail  been through ihe  drop-out experience and could  hold a meeting once a week  wiih students having problems,"  said Fergus.  The conference was an opportunity for students to learn  from guest speakers who  informed them about staying in  school and believing in themselves. "Most of ihe speakers  were really good, whal Ihey said  really made sense." Fergus said  "Hopefully this kind of thing  will continue and really make a  difference."

Joel Johnstone photo  Creek senior housing plan unveiled  by Jane Seyd  A proposal lo turn Ihe St.  Aidan's church properly in  Roberts Creek into a low-  income seniors housing complex has been presented to the  regional districl.  Appearing before the planning committee Thursday,  architect Dick Williams outlined  a plan for seven duplexes of  seniors housing built on three  and a half acres of Ihe property,  while one and a half acres  would be used for a future  church community centre.  In order for the development  to go ahead, Ihe property - currently designated for public and  institutional use - would require  rezoning and, so far, most criti-  glbsons chamber news  cism of the project has been  about increased housing density  on the property which would  occur with rezoning.  But Williams told directors  through clustering of duplexes  and use of a common sewage  system, Ihe impact of the development would actually be less  than it would be for a series of  single-family homes on half-  acre lots currently allowed on  surrounding properties.  "I can't for the life of me  think what precedent we're set-  ling...There aren't many developers who are interested in nonprofit housing," he commented.  In order to come up with  low-cost housing, "it's only logical thai you have to have more  than one unit per half acre," he  said.  Reverend Esther North, rector of the parish, said by leasing  the property and including public facilities the church would be  able to maintain a community  presence and have more control  over the development.  Selling Ihe property would  have been easier, once the old  St. Aidens church was closed,  she said, but "we don't think  that's a responsible thing to do."  So far, the plan has been  referred to the area planning  committee for review.  Meanwhile, Ihe proposal has  also come under discussion by  members of the Roberts Creek  OCP steering committee.  The Gibsons and Dislricl Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce thc recipients of the  1993 Community Recognition Awards:  Service to Arts and Education - Steve Sleep  Service lo Ihe Communily - John De Kleer  Service lo Seniors - Sue Wiggins  I   Service to Youlh - Russ and Carol McLeod  Special Award - Sandra Alcock  Couple of the Year - Don and Eszter Andow  These individuals are representative of Ihe  many hundreds of volunteers who give so gener  ously of Iheir time and skills to enhance the quality  of life on the Sunshine Coast.

Even though planting of  many cool weather vegetables  (such as radishes, lettuce, fava  beans, garlic, etc.) can begin in  March, the above May date  seems to hold true for the heat  and sun loving vegetables. Now  is definitely the time to plant  bush and pole beans, beets, carrots, onions, com, etc. And now  is the lime lo sel out tomato and  pepper plants, which do 100 per  cenl belter if you protect Ihem  with glass or poly especially  when it's cool and rainy.

It is significant thai the funeral service Fred, whom most of  us knew only as Lanky Pete,  was held in that church because  it was there for the past year that  he had found some self-respect  and friendship.  Fred lived all his life since  childhood here in Gibsons, surviving in his earlier years as an  odd-jobs man. "He knew where  everyone lived," said Eric Inglis,  "and he was always available to  deliver freight for me locally  when I was in thai business during the 1930's to 50's." Some of  that work, another said, was  humping coal from truck to residential basements or storage  sheds.  Fred never asked for any  favours; never hurt anybody,  others said. Among the pall  bearers were those who had first  known him in the Gibsons  school. Belly Tumbull, a retired  teacher now living in  Granthams, remembers Fred in  her primary class. "He had frequent epileptic seizures and  didn't get much schooling."  "Fred became a regular guest  at church suppers we put on  once a month as an outreach,"  Going Away  on Vacation?

The recently formed non-profit association  is planning to hold several fund-raising events this  summer to benefit young people on the Coast.  About 30 members of the association turned out  to hear Ron Girard talk about his work as a counsellor in the Breakaway alcohol and drug abuse  program in Gibsons.  Not all of the members have that alternative  lifestyle look many people normally associate with  the work "bikers". Association member Steve  Grabove said the local group would be working  with the larger more established motorcycle associations outside the Coasl as well as doing local  fundraising.  "What's appealing for the membership is this is  a 'win-win' situation for us." said Grabove. "We  can sponsor rides, share information, and benefit  the community through fundraising events. We're  going to have a Poker Run June 13. Beginning with  Ihe sign-in al the Cedar, in Gibsons, each bike will  progress through a series of sops along the Coasl to  Pender Harbour. At each stop they'll pick a card, in  the end the best had wins. We have lots of support  from the community and $500 in prizes that have  been donated. We want to put money back into the  community, into programs like Breakaway. We  want to work with youth."  Ron Girard outlined the hand-to-mouth funding  existence thai is and ongoing problem at Breakaway, housed in a convened garage.  "We don't know on the 15th if we'll make it lo  the 31st," he saiid. "It's lough. Last yeair we ran the  program on $35,000. We have about 150 kids,  most are 14-17 years old. Basically, we don't judge  them. It's a clean environment and the kids help  determine the direction of the program."  "It's more difficult for a kid to gel a bottle of  booze than it is to gel dope," Girard continues.  "Victoria or Ottawa aren't going to solve this problem. In BC there are only seven treatment beds for  kids who want to gel clean. Dope is the medicine  for poor self esteem. We lell kids we 're not going  lo solve iheir problems, bul we're here to listen.  We try lo give Ihem Ihe sense lhal somebody  cares."

You know  that spring has passed when the  Welcome Beach Spring Flea  Market is over with its usual  great success, the hall filled  with people seeking all kinds of  weird and wonderful items at  the white elephant stalls as well  as all the other goodies on hand.  A good social event was  enjoyed by all as well as some  much needed funds for the  upkeep of the hall.  The next item on the agenda  at the hall is the annual general  meeting on Wednesday, June 9  at 7:30 pm when installation of  a new executive will take place.  If you would be willing to participate as a member of the  board of directors, please give  your name to any member of the  present executive. New people  and new ideas are always welcome and are necessary to keep  this hall and the Welcome  Beach Community an active and  enjoyable place in which to be  involved.  Recreation plans  It was good news to hear that  the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Association is alive and well  with lots of plans for the young  people of the area. One of the  plans aimed at pleasure for  adults and kids alike is that the  group is working on bike and  walking trails in the Trout Lake  and Brooks Road areas.  Trail markers have been  obtained and all that is required  now is willing volunteers to get  out and help mark those trails.  Give Chuck Tkachuk a call at  885-6108 and offer your services.  More recreratlon  Another recreation activity in  the planning stages is for one  night a week of volleyball at  Coopers Green.  The equipment is all there  ready for use, there are plenty of  people of all ages who would  like to get involved, but this too  will require some commitment.  It will be necessary to have a  parent on hand to supervise and  if they take their turn and there  are enough willing parents it  will not be a hardship to volunteer and to enjoy being a part of  the whole thing.  Another project which the  Recreation Association organizes each year is the Saturday  night dinner at the Halfmoon  Bay Country Fair. This is a big  undertaking which is always a  great success, but this too  requires lots of help from willing hands.  Following dinner, the group  is planning an evening of entertainment by local talent. They  would like to see you bring  along your guitar or other  instrument, get up there and  sing a song or two, or even  recite a poem. There is lots of  talent in this area and this is a  good opportunity to share those  talents for the enjoyment of others.  Call Elise at 885-4642 if you  are willing to offer your help at  the volleyball and at the country  fair dinner.

CLAYTON'S HERIIAC.E MARKET  ;.' community  community services  hy Dianne Evans  The Building Purchase Fundraising Project of Community Services has received  another boost and board president Holly  Lehmann is hoping that it will inspire others  lo contribute.  Royal Bank  The Royal Bank of Canada wilh the support of Sechell manager Jack Pratt has  pledged $4,000 lo the project fund. "We very  much appreciate the Royal Bank's generosity and we are very happy to see the business  community come on board," Lehmann stated  lasl week.  "The work that Community Services  does has an effect on so many people here on  the Coast that it makes good sense to support  it.  "Not only do wc provide services for people from the cradle to old age, bul we also  employ almosl 70 staff and that is a big contribution to the local economy." she added.  Businesses contribute  Michael Welsh, of the law office of  Welsh and Gray has pledged $750 and Lome  Herman of the Sechell Dental Clinic has  promised $200.  Community Services would like to  acknowledge the generosity of these donours  and offer sincere thanks.  One of the first donours from the local  business community was Saan's Stores, wilh  a $1,000 contribution. Other donours include  BC Hydro with a $10,000 pledge and the  Vancouver Foundation, $40,000. \  The Sechelt Rotary Club has also pledged  a very generous $25,000 over three years.  Many other requests are out in the community at the present time and board members are busy trying to follow up on each  one. All donations are recognized with a tax  receipt and will be acknowledged publicly  unless otherwise specified by the donour.  Ronald McDonald  After the building is purchased there  comes the renovation process and Ronald  McDonald Children's Charities of Canada  has recently pledged $10,000 to be used to  renovate the proposed Children's Room.  "It is a great source of satisfaction knowing that we can work with excellenl organizations such as yours across Canada to  improve the quality of life of children in  need," says McDonald's president Peter B.  Beresford in a letter announcing the pledge.  A special event to mark the contribution of  RMCC is lo be planned.  Execulive director of Community Services, Vicki Dobbyn has been invited by the  Vancouver Foundalion to speak al ils annual  general meeting in June.  Dobbyn will talk about ihe impact that the  Vancouver Foundation has had on the Sunshine Coasl, not only in its contributions to  Communily Services, but to other organizations that have received grants.  For our community so close to Vancouver  and yet not seen as part of Ihe Lower Mainland by many donours, the generosity of the  foundalion can mean Ihe difference between  success and failure of a projecl. Here on ihe  Coast we deal with similar problems to those  of Vancouver and yet il is difficult to persuade off-Coast donours to recognize our  needs.  The Vancouver Foundation not only provides financial support, but offers leadership  to the business and foundation community.  How to support  If you are interested in learning more  about the society in order to make a decision  about were your charitable donations will go,  please contact Vicki Dobbyn at 885-5881,  Monday lo Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.  Coast News, May 24, 1993  *���-  11  The Artemis Trio, after their concert at the Pender Harbour Music Society hall Sunday  afternoon. Roxanne Gregory pholo  egmont news  Awareness key to aiding hearing loss  Early detection of a hearing  loss and appropriate intervention is critical, according to  local speech pathologists, who  are promoting May as  Speech/Language and Hearing  Month.  Hearing loss may occur al  any age. It can be temporary or  permanent, mild or severe.  Loudness and/or clarity of  sound may be affected.  Most people have some hearing which, with the benefit of  hearing aids and training, they  can learn to use, but aids do not  restore normal hearing.  Not all hearing impaired people wear hearing aids, are able  to speech read, or need sign language. It is important to be  aware of common causes and  signs of hearing loss.  During pregnancy and early  childhood, injury to the head,  noise, certain drugs and diseases  may put a child al high risk for  developing hearing loss.  Heredity may also be a factor. Blood incompatibility, low  birthweighl and maternal infections such as rubella, herpes and  syphilis are common causes of  hearing loss acquired during  pregnancy.  In childhood, meningitis,  mumps, chicken pox and recurrent middle ear infections alert  us to the possibility of a hearing  loss developing. In adulthood, it  is usually the result of aging or  exposure to noise.  Anything from a Walkman, a  toy firearm, to industrial equipment can be responsible for a  significant and permanent hearing loss.  Failure to progress through  the normal stages of speech,  language and listening development is the major sign of hearing loss in young children.  You can protect your hearing  by avoiding noisy environments, wearing approved ear  protectors when you must be  exposed to noise is important,  but bear in mind that a lot of  damaging noise will still reach  Ihe ear.  To enjoy your music later,  turn your Walkman down. If  others can hear the music, you  probably have the volume too  loud and permanent damage  may result.  If you suspect a hearing loss,  sec your physician, who may  refer you to an Ear, Nose and  Throat specialist. If a hearing  aid is recommended an audiolo-  gist is besl qualified to diagnose  your hearing and select the  proper hearing aid.  Be sure to obtain only the  hearing aid,' which your audiolo-  gist recommends. If you are not  satisfied wilh it, go back to the  audiologisl.  Remember early and appropriate intervention is critical for  the young child.  by Maureen Parrott  Good news for kids and parents! Pat Thibodeau is spearheading a summer fun drop-in  program for kids aged six to 12  al Egmont School after school  lets out for summer.

In another instance, she sils  up with a young child in a still  space of night, listening lo the  wind off the lake catch in the  Irees.  Moments like these - of feelings und echoes caught within  Ihe fabric of everyday - are  woven through ihe language of  Black Cup, a new collection of  poetry by local writer Theresa  Khiskan.  For much of the poetry,  Khiskan draws from moments in  her own life - which for the past  11 years has been spent with her  family near Ruby Lake; where  she and husband John Pass also  publish chapbooks on an old  printing press.  In personal and moving  terms, Khiskan writes of the  epiphanies which come with a  son's discovery of tadpoles or a  glance at an old whiskey cup  kepi on Ihe highest shelf.  There's also the language of  the body, of desire and the mysteries of pregnancy and childbirth.  In the past, those topics were  sometimes taboo for women,  says Khiskan, but in more recent  times, most of the barriers have  come down.  In addition, as the mother of  three school-age children, "I felt  that was what I'd known so intimately for eight or 10 years I  had a right to use it."  "Building a house and mak-  Theresa Khiskan  Jane Seyd photo  ing gardens and having a family  ... those were the things that  happened," says Khiskan. "I  think women have made art out  of the domestic out of necessity  over the years."  After publishing her first  book of poetry in 1978, Khiskan  says at times when her children  were young, she wondered if  she would write again.  But it's the moments of the  everyday which sometimes  shine and act as signposts for  the more heady, universal elements of literature, says  Khiskan. "I think you get there  by concentrating on the particular ... People do make poetry out  of real life. That's what art is  rooted in."  Two of her own favourites  include the American poet  Sharon Olds and Irish writer  Shamus Heneny, who writes  about the land and family.  While many people these  days have come to regard poetry  as an alien form of expression,  "it needn't be that," she says.  "Poets don't really lead rarified  lives."  In spite of the domestic  scenes in Khiskan's poetry,  there's also another ghostly  presence which sometimes  appears behind the wife and  mother: a freewheeling single  woman who lives out of her car,  has time to spend reading books  or lolling in the sun and stands  on the corners "lifting her skirt  to strangers."  That's all part of the conflicting impulses in most people's  lives, says Khiskan.  In many of her poems, like  Black Cup and Old Scores, the  past, with slightly wistful tone,  also mixes in with the present  and the future.  "The thing that I think  shocks people the most is I  don't always write love poems  for my husband," says Khiskan.  Writing poetry is rarely that  straightforward, though, she  says, and it's never certain  whether the poem will be about  "the things that happened yesterday or the things that happened 10 years ago.  "It's sort of fishing in that  sense - seeing what will come  up... Sometimes the old ghosts  come to haunt you at unexpected times."  Throughout the book, there's  also an exploration of whal is  meant by 'home'.  Originally from Vancouver  Island, as a younger woman  Khiskan spent a year living off  the west coast of Ireland, and  travelled through Europe, stopping to live in Greece for six  months.  Despite that, "I don't think  I'm really a nomad," she says,  mentioning a book by another  favourite, Gary Sneider:  "He says what you finally  have to do is stay home...and  that there are deep lessons to be  learned by staying in one place  and being committed to one  place...It really rings true for  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  I Never Did Like  The Big Saw  BY W.

Jt  we  had  no chain saw or  dragsaws, nothing but seven or  eight   foot   crosscuts   with   few  men able to put them in good  cutting order.  To get around a big windfall  which lay in the way we mijht  ��ay to the Big Boss "Would it  matter to go around this one?"  and he might say "It wouldn't  hurt now, would it?" And there  you have the reason why the old  roads seem so long and crooked.  We didn't Blways get away  with it that easy, to then we  took augurs in place of the mw.  One of us would get atop wjjh  the two-inch augur and sink a  hole into the very heart. An-  her with the one-inch would  side. Then with dry cedar  ' /ers nnd bits of dry bark a  ale fire was started and this  could soon be left to its work.  Sometimes 20 to 40 of such fires  would be left on the job and often the whole tree from root to  top wouM hum away. More often we vould find the big hole  with a thin shell of bark and  sap.vood to be cut away.  1 have sern a hig fir stump  ���*-oth rit;ht fort high and almost  the same thrpuph removed in  this way. Tw]h or three sets of  holes would be set going in the  hutt of lhe' stump It would  burn off and the top drop into  the burnt out hole, keeping the  fin going until even the rootfc  were gone.  It mirht talc a week of burning. I have felled more trees in  this way than in any other, for  I have worked alone most of  my days and never did come to  tike the big saw.

Mrs. Phillips nnd  her seven children escaped unhurt except for minor burns suffered, for which she was taken  to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment. Her husband was not at  home at the time of the fire.  Much thanks go to Wilf Scott,  of Scott's Transfer, who was the  first to discover the fire. By  quick thinking and fast work he  managed to help save a lot of  the furnishings.  Ollie Dubois, next door neighbor, saw the smoke and rushed  to the scene but was too late to  do much, although he and Mr.  Charles Sundquist kept the fire  from spreading to the nearhy  bridge and car.

One of our  good citizen fishermen, Mr. Goo.  Day, in company with Mr. Wm.  Blakely, had come in with a  tow of lumber from the Gilmour  Sawmill. They had just tied up  their boats and their lumber and  Mr. Day had started to prepare  his dinner. While his kettle was  heating on the oil stove he decided to put some gas in his tank  in preparation for a run after  dinner. He secured the gutf in  a five-gallon measure and before putting it in the tank which  was inside the cabin he shut off  the oil stove, then started to  pour the gas. Suddenly there  rame a flash and he was enveloped in fire. He tried to throw  the flaming measure out of the  open door but it struck one side  and fell back at his feet, drenching him with gasoline. Immediately the only exit from  the cabin was a mass of flames  which poured out the door and  the pilot house windows and  shot many feet above.  To those outside it looked like  stark tragedy. The flaming  doorway was realized to be hope  less and swift action was started  to smash in the front of the  cabin on the chance that a rescue might still be effected that  way.  In the meantime the trapped  man,   with   great   presence     '  mind snatched a wot" -  ket from his herself in it anr* -  the f'aminf  care for the injured man and  the other to attack the burning  boat. Willing hands and enough  buckets and sea water soon had  the fire all smothered down to  only the burning gasoline measure, and the timely arrival of a  man with a fire extinguisher  snuffed even that out, and the  fight was over. The whole action was very fast and it appears nobody lost his head aa  sometimes happens Due to  these factors a tnan, though badly burned, has a good rhance ot  life and further usefulness and  he has a boat to go on with  when he is able to do so  The injured man waa Riven  first aid by William Blakely and  put aboard Mr. Victor Cramp's  boat and taken to St Maiy's  hospital at Pender Harbour At  last report he was doing welt.

Canine heartworm disease is  caused by parasitic worms that  invade a dog's heart, resulting  in impaired blood flow and  damage to the heart, lungs and  liver.  In cases where damage to the  internal organs is extensive, the  condition may be fatal.  Heartworm is spread by  mosquitoes which transmit Ihe  disease from infected dogs to  healthy dogs.  One dog can be the source of  infection for a whole neighbourhood.  "Heartworm disease may  continue to spread throughout  Canada since few dogs, relative  to ihe total population, receive  preventive medication," says  Rule.  The BC Veterinary Medical  Association has launched a  major multi-media educational  campaign lo urge dog owners to  consult their veterinarians to  learn more about canine heart-  worm disease and the importance of prevention.  5 YEARS AGO  The tragic death of Laura  Henderson in a highway accident prompted Sechelt's mayor  Bud Koch to raise the concern  of teen drinking and driving at  last week's council meeting.  Koch has been adamant in his  sland against alcohol abuse.  Last summer he met with considerable opposition when he  persuaded council to refuse a  permit for a beer garden at  Sechelt's Celebration Days.  10 YEARS AGO  A newly-formed Sunshine  Coast Cycling Association will  make its inauguration this week  with a trip to the Roberts Creek  picnic site at the bottom of  Flume Road.  25 YEARS AGO  ,    Premier WAC Bennett, Hon-  : ourable Wesley Black, minister  of   highways,   Honourable  Waldo Skillings, minister of  industrial development and  Honourable Isabel Dawson,  minister without portfolio,  along with Monty Aldous, ferry  authority manager, officiated  during the inaugural run of Ihe  Sunshine Coasl Queen on  Thursday of last week at the  Langdale ferry terminal.  30 YEARS AGO  Bob and Eileen Griffith of  Egmonl realized a lifelong  ambition Monday when their  38-foot (roller New Dawn was  launched in the presence of  their many friends. The keel  was laid about Iwo years ago  and since then Bob has spent  evry minute of his spare lime  working on il.  35 YEARS AGO  A Are truck lo serve the area  outside Gibsons is now established in a building given Gibsons and area volunteer fire  department by William Weiii-  handl and is located on his  property at Reid and North  Roads.  45 YEARS AGO  The new Howe Sound ferry,  which is operating between  Horseshoe Bay and Gibsons is  Ihe converted Fairmile, Ihe  Machigonne, owned by Gibson  Brothers of Vancouver.

Symons died in a plane crash 1,000  feet from the end of the Sechell airport  runway lasl monlh.  The wreckage of his plane was not  localed for 14 hours after the plane  went missing around 6 pm.  Sechell RCMP Staff Sgt. Cam Reid  defended the RCMP's decision not to  ask for a night ground search, when it  became obvious that the missing plane  had not returned to Vancouver around  8:30 pm.  Emergency coordinator Cuts training and information programs  "We didn't wanl to see volunteers  stumbling around the bush in the nighl.  We felt the safety of Ihe Search and  Rescue members was more important  than the need lo establish a ground  search when we didn't know where lo  begin.  "If there hadn't been an aerial search  in progress we would have asked for a  ground search," said Reid.  Local R.N. Shirley Zaytsoff, who is  with Rizar Aviation, owners of the  plane, suggested thai Ihe area around  the airport would have been a good  place to begin a ground search, as two  other planes had been in radio contact  with the pilot just prior to loss of radio  contact, and local people reported hearing a plane go down.  "Other places conduct night searches. You just don't leave a human being  out there," Zaytsoff said.  Reid said a lot of misinformation  about possible locations of the missing  plane and lack of communication  occurred with the coordinating agency  in Victoria.  An extensive water search was initiated in Victoria, which called out the  Coast Guard Auxiliary.  Local Coasl Guard officials conducted a night waler search crossing several  times between Sechelt and Nanaimo,  assisted by the aerial search and the  dropping of flares.  PEP coordinator Chris Caldwell  downplayed the problems, assuring  everyone that the next time an emergency occurs a new procedure would be in  place whereby better communications  between the three agencies and volunteers would be in place.

Caldwell was recently given discretion by the SCRD to amend his budget  in the face of $15,000 loss in requested  increases to operations funding.  Topping these cuts are Caldwell's  decision not to fund search and rescue  training.  Additional cuts included SO per cent  from the public information program,  and all funding for the COPE program.  Other cuts included additional emergency social service kits, improvements to  equipment storage facilities, and emergency personnel car identification kits.  Caldwell also cut his deputy and his  own training allowance.  He retains his salary.  Overall  housing  densities  toned  down since  first draft  from page 1  "Il's quite possible to have  an attractive and well functioning communily at that level with  enough (population) to pay for  recreation and olher service  needs." However, plan growth  projections indicate those numbers could be 20 years away,  and Stralis said lhat Ihe town's  inability lo service new development with waler and sewer  tends lo slow development.  "With the servicing capacity (in  place), we could be pretty much  fully developed in a few years."  The high density apartment  projections thai alarmed residents in the first draft have been  removed from the revised draft,  which earmarks undeveloped  residential lands with a more  general 'mixed housing' designation which could include single and multi-family housing.  Staff's concern about possible  objections to housing ideas in  the plan seems to revolve more  around the special low density  infill designation, which would  support duplexes or townhouses  on undeveloped lots in existing  single family neighbourhoods -  north of Hillcrest, between  North Fletcher and Highway  101, and in the Burns Road  area.  "We're looking at a slight  increase in density. The  floor/space ratio (relative lo lot  size) is not much bigger but  reflects the type of housing  demand we're getting," Stratis  said.  Gibsons' limited land base  also figures in rationale around  marine and shoreline uses, a  section of the plan which  includes a definition and limited  area for a 'working harbour'.  Stratis described the difficulties Ihe town foresees with  allowing marine business development outside the inner harbour area in terms of the land  configuration along the waterfront north of School Road.  Marine uses impact upland use  and the waterfront area is a narrow strip accessed by a major  highway - even wilh flexible  setbacks from the highway,  access and parking would be a  major problem, she said.  Those problems, however,  would also flow from multi-  family residential land-use the  plan envisages for thai area.  Stratis said the site deficiencies  would likely mean lhat densities  would be lower and underground parking would be  required.  "Exempting people or lowering parking standards doesn't  work."  Meanwhile, the ALR designations are a striking change  from Ihe previous draft, which  proposed retaining the limited  agricultural land.  The revised plan proposes  removing ALR lands east of  Payne road from lhe reserve to  support commercial development in upper Gibsons.  The OCP open houses will  operate from 2 pm lo 5 pm and  7 pm to 9 pm bolh days.  ���
