By the time the fire was brought under control,  about 18 minutes after firefighters arrived on the  scene, the top floor of the house was gutted and  the lower floor had suffered extensive smoke and  water damage.  But for now. both Higgs and the Dixons are  thankful for small mercies, because it could have  been much worse.  Lee Dixon said her husband had gone to work  and she was in the house with her two sons -  Spencer, 11 and Warren, 10 - when she smelled  smoke coming through the healing vents from  upstairs just after 7 pm. At the time, her older son  was showering in an upstairs bathroom next to the  room where the fire broke out.  Because Dixon is on crutches with a broken  ankle, her younger son alerted the older boy and  ihe three fled from the trailer - just as the flames  began to burn rapidly through the home.  "By the time we got oul, the windows were  already breaking," said Dixon.  The fire department responded to her call in just  two and a half minutes - in part because Wednesday is also the department's practice night at the  firehall.  At first, neighbouring relatives attempted to put  the fire out with an extinguisher, but by the time  the fire department arrived on the scene "it was  fully involved on the upper floor of the house,"  said Higgs. "It was really going."  Higgs said part of the reason the fire spread so  quickly is that the wooden panelling, used instead  of drywall in many mobile homes, is highly combustible. "When it starts to burn, il goes like a blast  furnace," said Higgs. "It never fails to amaze me  how fast these things can g v..The heal doesn't  vent itself.

Jane Seyd photo  Gibsons Bus gasps  Maverick kills two runs  The precarious fate of the Gibsons Bus hangs on a $5,(KX) grant  application to the municipality.  Town officials met with bus society directors Thursday to  review financial projections for the non-profit service, but Mayor  Eric Small said no decision followed. "We're not in a position to  make a recommendation now," the mayor said Friday, having previously told the society that council would respond to Ihe bus plea  by Fell. 29 the deadline-sol to raise $1.1,000 to ensure the service's continuance,  As of Friday, a total of $9,4(K) had been raised through community donations. Society directors were to meet Saturday to decide  whether whether to hold out until Tuesday in hopes of a favorable  decision by council at its regular meeting March 3.  Public transport on Ihe Coast suffered one blow Friday when  Maverick Coach Lines axed two daily runs: the 7:20 am from  Sechelt and the 4:.10 pm bus from Vancouver. That service had  run continuously since 1951  IWA local takes stand for injured workers  by Stuart Burnside  Concern for the rights of injured IWA  (International Woodworkers Association)  members has prompted the union's Sunshine Coast local 1-71 to take a stand  against its national leaders in negotiating a  three year BC contract.  The problem, according to IWA representative Murray Cantelon, is that benefits  are to be cut for injured workers who have  their claims rejected by the Workers Compensation Board (WCB).  Cantelon said under the old arrangement, If a worker's claim is rejected by  WCB, the IWA files an appeal on his  behalf.  The worker's company pays the worker  while Ihe appeal process is underway and  thai money is repaid by  WCB if the appeal is successful. Those payments  from the company can  last for a year beyond        WCB payments.  "It means (the worker) can have some  money coming in while the appeal process  is underway," Cantelon said, "...sometimes  an appeal can take up to six or seven  months.  Under the new contract, the combination of WCB payments and subsequent  employer payments in the event of an  appeal can only last a year.  Cantelon said the new contract favoured  the WCB even though the appeal process  But strike not  foreseen  often proved the compensation board had  made the wrong decision  regarding a  worker's        injuries.  He pointed out  thai about 80 per cent of the appeals  against WCB are won by the workers but  said it is necessary to support them until  WCB could be proven wrong.  Cantelon lamented that not all the members of IWA local 1-71 (stretching from  Squamish to Alaska) were supportive of  his protest. He said a division exists  between IWA members working for the  mills, who support the new contract, and  IWA loggers who are againsi the new  agreement.  Cantelon said he didn't know why the  mill workers didn't object to the change in  that lessened the rights of injured workers  but said it was possible the section simply  wasn't given enough importance.  "It's a rather innocuous little paragraph  in the new contract," Cantelon explained,  "and you probably wouldn't think much  about it unless you've been injured."  "1 personally think this is deadly, however," Cantelon added.  He noted that there were around  twelve appeals to WCB rulings taking  place through his office at the present tim,  proving the need to maintain injured worker protection..  "This isn't something we're going to  strike over," Cantelon said, "but it does-  mean we need to negotiate a little more."  Elphie students  told tale of horror  by Stuart Bumslie  For police officer Michael Buckingham, it was jusl a routine  attempt lo pull over a suspected intoxicated driver; just an average  night like so many others. In his mind Buckingham was projecting,  mentally ticking off the standard police procedures for dealing with  an over-the-limit diver. At the same time he visualized Ihe antics of  the suspected offender, antics that now seemed almost pathetic in  their predictability.  "Honest, 1 only had a couple of beers after work, officer," was the  standard line from someone asked to step out of their car and preform a few simple equilibrium testing movements. "I couldn't have  been in the bar for more than an hour."  More often than not the smell of alcohol and accompanying road  map appearance of the suspect's eyeballs tell a more sobering tale,  and another inebriated driver finds himself repeating his story before  the courts.  This was not a routine night , however, and the car Buckingham  wanted to stop, driven by a 21-year-old named Brian, suddenly  began to pick up speed; Brian had opted for flight and Buckingham  found himself in hot pursuit.  The chase lasted for about a mile, at which point Brian, flying low  al over 90 miles an hour, lost control of his car and smacked into  another vehicle coming the other way. The impact sent Brian  hurtling out of his vehicle and sailing through space while the car  continued along, bouncing end over end down the blacktop.  The car Brian hit went spinning out of control then ploughed into  turn to page 2  Former police officer Michael Buckingham recounted for Elphinstone students his  personal story of pain and suffering caused by an impaired driver.

Joel   Johnstone   photo  Forest  strategy  to air in  Sechelt  BC's draft old-growth forest  strategy, prepared after more  than two years of research and  debate by 90 specialists, will be  presented for public review at  the Rockwood Centre in Sechelt  Wednesday (March 4), from 7  pm to 10 pm.  The meeting will also focus  on the strategy's implications  for areas of contention on the  Sunshine Coast, such as the  Tetrahedron and Caren Range.  There is plenty of local interest in the 70-page strategy document, proposed as a  comprehensive working paper  for public discussion on the old-  growth issue. Groups and individuals have claimed more than  100 copies from the district  forestry office in Wilson Creek  in recent weeks.  The Sechelt meeting is one  of 26 such sessions project participants are hosting across the  province to test the document's  proposals against a wider audience. Public comment from the  sessions will then be assembled  and considered for inclusion in  a formal strategy paper, targeted  for public circulation in May.  Representatives from provincial and federal agencies, community and environmental  groups, the forest industry,  labour organizations,  researchers and academics were  involved in putting together the  document, Despite the range of  views, the foreword says the  various groups all agreed that  "recognition of old-growth values and the development of an  old-growth strategy is a pessary and worthwhile end <f  if our environment am st  economy are to be sustained in  the long term."  The strategy acknowledges  that BC's old-growth forests  represent a wide range of economic, social, ecological and  spiritual values, and that it will  be a challenge to manage them  so that this heritage is not permanently lost. It also points up  the need to renew managed  forests with more care, "to  reflect values and attributes  which a study of old-growth has  revealed to be biologically  important."  The strategy indicates: how  old-growth can be defined, how  inventories can be improved,  what research is needed, how  old-growth values can be negotiated, how reserves can be  established, how management  turn to page 2 Coast News.

"The biggest problem is that  people think they're invincible,"  Buckingham told the students.  "They think, '(an alcohol related accident) won't happen to  me'...And may be it never will,  bul it can I'm living proof."  Buckingham said Brian  "miraculously" survived being  thrown from his car that night  hy landing in a blackberry bush.  He broke his collar bone.  The driver Brian hit,"Don",  suffered a broken hip but was  otherwise uninjured.  Buckingham suffered the  worst physical damage, but,  according to the former officer,  Brian and Don suffered the  worst pain in lite emotional turmoil they went through.  Buckingham says he counts  himself as the lucky one  because he was unconscious  and doesn't remember a thing.  As his talk to the students  progressed, Buckingham drove  lite message home time and  lime again, "Don't drink and  drive."  "It all comes down to how  you look at life, and how you  look at drinking and driving  problem," Buckingham said.  "You have to know that you can  be hurt or killed. You have to  realize that you can hurt or kill  someone else. Things can go  seriously wrong."  He emphasized thai to regard  the problem as "drunk" driving  is Inaccurate because a driver  doesn't have lo be drunk to  cause an accident: "A couple of  beers after work is enough,"  Buckingham said, "In fact, even  one can be too many."

March 2, 1942  news  Landslide damages West Sechelt  house, raises concern over erosion  b�� Jane Stvtl  At first, there was just the  sound of the rain outside. Then  they heard the noise of a window breaking as a wall of mud  pushed in through the back wall  of the house and buckled the  stairway  By the time the force of  gravity and a saturated slope of  fill had run their course, approximately $4(I,(KKI worth of damage had been done to Barbara  McCluskie's ocean-front home  in West Sechelt  "Il was a teal shock," said  McCluskle, who said she'd  never had problems before with  the property.  The slide happened during a  period of heavy rainfall at the  end of January Some residents  speculate that land clearing  above Highway 101, where  McClttskic's house is located, is  changing underground drainage  patterns and causing erosion of  the bank below  But to date, nobody's exactly  sure what caused the McClttskie  slide. The most likely explanation is that runoff from the  heavy rains saturated the sloping ground on land both above  and below Highway 101. And at  the bottom of the slope, the fill  used by a previous owner lo  build McCluskie's driveway  became waterlogged and gave  way to gravity.  Currently, an engineer is  examining the property lo figure  out exactly what happened  Says McClttskie, "No one's  really Iimi sure where the water  would be coming from to do  this type of damage."  The house was built in the  late 1980s, alter an on-site engineering report had been provided, including recommendations  on soil, grade, and rocks. But  when it came to the recommendation to put in a special retaining wall above the house, the  original owner had a chain link  fence installed instead. "It was  Barbara  McCluskie's  fl West Sechelt  home was hit  by a mudslide after  heavy rains.  Joel Johnstone  photo  supposed to hold everything  back," says McCluskie, who  didn't see the reports until after  the landslide happened. "Obviously it didn't."  To make matters worse,  McClttskie has been told her  insurance policy won't cover  the damage caused by lite slide  '...winter's heavy  rains caused a  variety of  problems...'  although she says she had "the  broadest policy you can  get...The agent told me that  nobody will insure for landslides."  Because it was fill, rather  than the natural slope which  collapsed in the slide, immediate neighbours haven't lieen too  worried about their property,  says McClttskie.  But other residents, such as  Jean Cleary, have been concerned about slides on other  properties along the waterfront,  and speculate that land clearing  at the top of Mills Road may  have changed subsurface water  patterns and contributed lo the  problem.  According to John Wild,  planning technician for the District of Sechelt, requirements  for drainage are made with the  approval of a subdivision, but  unless land clearing is causing  obvious drainage problems on  to municipal roads, the district  has no authority to regulate  what happens on private property.  In special cases of unstable  property, the municipality can  request a geotechnical report  and certain engineering requirements before granting a building permit, he says. "But unless  there's a covenant registered  against the properly, il's buyer  beware I suppose."  Wild said winter's heavy  rains caused a variety of problems across the district. "In a  situation like that, it doesn't  matter how you design for it  You gel rains like we did in  January and these things happen," he said.

The plan lias significant advantages over the govern  tnent's recent decision to allow home purchase with a  down payment of just Rve per cent. Rather than making  housing more affordable, that reduction is just as likely lo  lure over-eager purchasers to their financial doom.  Negotiating mortgages to the limit ol their budgets al  low interest rates, struggling home buyers are likely to  find they can no longer beat the load when rates  inevitably rise and tlte irksome bank loan has to be rvli  nanced.  The RRSP windfall, on the other hand, will tree Up Oth  erwise dormant capital, money sheltered away from the  taxman over years of careful saving. Hut who will be tin.*  real beneficiaries of this apparent largesse?  Not those most in need.  Lowly first-time buyers trying to gain a foothold in the  volatile real estate market tire haul pressed just to scrape  together a down payment. They are hardly likely tu have  amassed $.-..000 in an RRSP, let alone the $20,000 limit  set by Finance Minister Don Mazankowski.  No, the cheers tor this piece of budget gimmickry are  rising not from those doing all they can to make a start; it  is the housing industry and real estate companies who are  applauding. And even there, the pickings are liable to be  slim.  Realtors will no doubt reap the benefits of some  increased activity in the market, but the economic stimulus from new construction won't amount to much.  By the government's own estimates, only about l(),(KM)  new homes will he built as a result of the initiative.  Analysis pointed to similar shortcomings in much of  the budget's headline appeal last week as political posturing lurked behind the surface gestures of goodwill.  That sinking feeling  The ambitious Gibsons Discovery project finally hit a  reef hist week as it became apparent the economic constraints of the plan could not rise above stringent maritime  regulations.  The project's demise, after mote than five years of  patient nurturing, is disheartening for a community which  dared dream. The news was disappointing for many, but  none more so than members of the committee who  worked diligently on the project for the past year, investing countless hours of volunteer time.  Here's a bouquet for their dedication to a vision - the  community spirit which drives our more noble endeavours.  Wo welcome latter* to tht�� editor on  matters of public Interest.

V0N3AO  letters  Hill's plan goes  beyond noise  The recent front page article  ami editorial regarding Hill's  Machine Shop expansion did  not accurately present the facts  of the situation.  For example, I'm note sure  who decided that "noise (is the)  chief argument against plan,"  but it certainly isn't my chief  argument. Residents in this  neighbourhood have a number  of concerns, and noise is only  one of ihem.  As a boal owner, 1 can identify wilh people who want service facilities in Gibsons. But  marine ways for servicing recreational boats are noi really suited to developed areas. Modern  facilities use a walking crane  which lifts the boats on to an  asphalt parking lot where they  can be worked on a dozen at a  time, thus generating the cash  flow to justify operation in a  high-density location. This is  what we have at most marinas  around Vancouver: Granville  Island. Fisherman's Cove,  Mosquito Creek. This concept  should have been a part of the  planning for the Gibsons Marina and perhaps someday it  could be introduced there. It  doesn't work on property like  Hill's, which has no room for  the parking and is too steep.  Expansion of Hill's Marina  in close proximity lo a very  popular bathing beach and a  municipal park, in a residential  and recreational area, obstructing a popular seawalk, and  causing various kinds of con  gestion and pollution - this isn't  a good idea. It goes far beyond  just making a hit of noise.  ZALE DALEN  Gibsons  Hill's marine plan  misunderstood  An open letter to the  citizens of Gibsons  Some people have expressed  concern over the proposed  rezoning of Hill's Machine  Shop on Marine Drive in Gibsons. They worry that the development of the marineways will  cause a blockage of the seawalk  and will result in the development of heavy industry in the  area. I am writing to clarify  these serious misconceptions  about the rezoning.  I am a marine diesel mechanic with 15 years' experience  running my own business -  Coles Marine Diesel Repair -  both on the North Shore of Vancouver and here on the Sunshine Coast. My business is  installing or repairing boat  engines, work which often  requires lifting boats from the  water. I have decided to purchase the property at Hill's  Machine Shop so that I may  develop a permanent marine  repair business accessible to  boaters, fishermen and other  mariners.  As part of my effort to  acquire the property I have  asked Gibsons council to rezone  the property Marine 1. This  rezoning will allow me to  undertake two tasks essential to  any permanent marine repair  shop: (1) construct a pier and  (2) build a marineways. The  pier will allow boaters to lie up  right in front of the shop when  they need pans, repairs, or other  assistance. The marineways will  enable me to lift boats from the  water for cleaning, repairs or  inspection.  No boat construction will  take place at this site, nor will  major renovations be done  there. My business is to repair  boats, not to build them. Major  building or renovation projects  will continue to be done at  established industrial areas in  Vancouver.  As part of my efforts to  acquire this properly, I engaged  Norecol Environmental Consultants to survey the area and  advise me of all enviromental  requirements and restrictions  concerning the proposed development. I intend to install facilities which will conform to, if  not exceed, all environmental  requirements.  I have made it clear in writing to Gibsons council that I  have no intention of restricting  public access to the waterfront  area; on the contrary, I would  like to see this business become  pan of the public face of Gibsons' waterfront. As I indicated  to council, I am more than willing to allow an easement for the  continuation of the Gibsons seawall through the property and  intend to construct the  marineways to allow for pedestrian access through that area.  Many people are concerned  about the development of  marine businesses in residential  areas, but examples abound of  successful partnerships between  communities and businesses,  including Cates Towing at  Lonsdale Quay, Granville  Island in Vancouver, Ocean  Fisheries in Campbell River and  Muddy Waters in Nanaimo. Far  Irom being a detriment to the  community of Gibsons, this  marine development could be a  spark to business and to  tourism, as boaters from the  Sunshine Coast and other areas  stop for repairs or parts and visit  other shops and services al the  same time.  if you wish to see Gibsons  grow and prosper in a safe and  planned fashion, 1 urge you to  write to town planner Rob  Buchan and express your support for the rezoning of this  property to allow for the construction of a pier and  marineways. I also ask you to  voice your opinion at the town  meeting called to discuss this  proposal.  DAVE COLES  Gibsons  Nature of smoke  As a smoker, I'd like to put  in my $5.60 worth about the  smokeless SOS for nature dance  at the Roberts Creek Hall.  If carcinogens were being  pumped in through the air vents,  I'd want to know about it. But  nobody has to warn me about  clean air. Quite frankly, the current level of tolerance for this  suicidal behaviour surprises me  far more than having to pocket  my drugs for the night.  MAGGIE MONDEY  Roberts Creek  Meditations on politics over mulled wine in March  "It is," said Jake, "a remarkable thing."  "What's that Jake?"  An absolutely splendid stretch of early Spring  weather had just come to an end. From across the  North Pacific had come the wind and the rain,  chasing the unseasonable balminess which had  been February for the time being away and leaving  us with the seasonal surliness of March  Jake and I were at the chess board. Glasses of  mulled wine were at hand and on the wood stove  in Jake's cabin, the stove again a factor of comfort  in Ihe windswept, rain-bespattered chill of early  March, was a saucepan near full of thai which  would replenish the glasses when the time was  right.  "I speak of the absolute bovinity of the voting  public. God knows that I subscribe to the parliamentary system. Being able to throw out the government rascals of the day without resorting to  bloodshed or rolling in the tanks is a saving grace  of a system for which the vast majority of mankind  can only hunger if they have even heard of it at all.  "But the degree of density and dullness with  which we here in Canada exercise the franchise is  downright alarming. From local government to the  federal stage and at all levels intermediate we  seem to have but two gears. Apathy or hysteria  seem to be the only modes we function in, neither  of them particularly suitable for the task of keep-  musings  John burnside  ing governments honest or effective."  I am certainly not going to accuse my old friend  of anything us base as gamesmanship, hut nonetheless I took a sip of my mulled wine and studied the  chess hoard carefully. Experience had taught me  that, over the chessboard, Jake rarely launched  himself into conversation unless he was well  pleased with his last move. If he was well-pleased  then I had better give the situation before me a  good going over.  Without taking my eye off the board (what  could he intend with that seemingly innocuous  bishop move?), 1 offered him the briefest of  responses that courtesy allowed.  "What do you have in mind, Jake?"  "I have in mind the truly astonishing ineptitude  and crass dishonesty of recent governments of this  realm, provincial and federal. But more astonishing than the ineptitude and crassness of our elected  masters is the bovine unquestioning with which  the Canadian people accept the crass ineptitude of  their governments.  "Take, for example, the 'revenue neutral' GST.  The revenue neutral tax is the one and only great  success story of recent Canadian political history. I  was reading the other day thai our revenue neutral  tax had scooped, in its first year of implementation, something like $16 billion out of our pockets  and into the maw of the money digester in Ottawa.  $16 billion, and they said it was going to be revenue neutral. Such blatant dishonesty should have  us howling for blood, but, no, we shrug and accept  the fact that we are being lied to and robbed as an  inevitable fact of life."  I could sec no immediate danger from the bishop move, though 1 had an uneasy feeling that my  old companion would not be holding forth unless  he felt he had the situation well in hand on the  chess board. I decided the best defence was a good  offence and moved to the attack with a king side  pawn move which i though had prospects for a  daring and brilliant assault on his yet uncastled  king.  Jake moved a knight from the back rows. Why?  "Then there are those other gems in the Canadian political crown, the Socred party of British  Columbia. Surely there are few species on the face  of the earth which so richly deserve being endan  gered. An independent study of the books is telling  us that Socred dishonesty and incompetence in  office was costing the province hundreds of millions of dollars a year, and thai is not counting the  millions they gave to their friends and supporters.  "And these guys were getting elected as the  party who could manage money. These were the  hard-headed businessmen upon whose broad  shoulders did our fiscal future depend. We were so  busy watching the gyrations of Vander Zoom thai  we didn't notice thai the rest of the government  was a disaster, or were just loo complacent and  dumb to either understand or care. Just give thai  cud another chew there. Bossy, Looking thoughtful beats thinking any day and is much easier,  too."  Jake's knight move seemed unthreatening and 1  hastened on with my own king side attack, moving  another pawn to free up the big guns waiting in the  rear.  Jake moved a pawn and suddenly there was a  discovered check with the non-threatening bishop  and clear indication of worse to come.  "Damn," I said.  "Indeed," said Jake. Suddenly there it all was.  A knight move liberating his queen and an  inevitable checkmate. I resigned.  "Will you have a little more wine?" said Jake.  ^""1 THE SUNSHINE   a  CoaU  Editor  Reporters  Photographer  The Sunshine Coast News is locally owned  and published on the Sunshine Coast.

Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  i>  MMMMMMiittMiillttlltftiil Coast News, March 2, 1992  opinion  By Dickens! Boastings from the past  in a nutshell  s. nutter  A thing lhat can come up in a longish sort of life is that you find  yourself boasting about bits and pieces of experience that are hardly  worth boasting about, and lhat anyway, simply happened to you by  chance.  For example I once kissed the granddaughter, or possibly great-  granddaughter, of Charles Dickens. It was in Lymington. Hampshire,  on the south coasl of England, opposite the Isle of Wight and at the  edge of the New Forest, which I guess sounds pretty good, really. I  was about 12 1 suppose, at the time. I was secretly engaged to another  girl who's name was Penelope Lovcday. Penelope was in fact wearing a Woolworth's emerald ring from me on a gold cord about her  neck and under her jumper.  There was an odd sort of school in this place that we all went lo. ll  was run by a Miss Latham and took place in the old Forester's Hall.  Simply a round of chairs in the middle of the hall, but all about on the  walls were the stuffed heads of stags and Ihe foresters bows mounted  under them, and a little brass plaque saying who had shot who and  when.  We were taught Latin and geography. We must have had arithmetic, I suppose, but I don't remember anything of that. The indelible  impression of course, is of the stags heads all about and the bows.  With the forest on our doorstep and there being still deer and wild  cattle and ponies within, we naturally roamed about on our Raleigh  bikes and had each a good yew bow. We would lie out on an old oak  bough over a cattle run and shoot ineffectual arrows at the shaggy  beasts running below.  My mother used to take off a lot and visit my father in Canada.  Usually my young brother and 1 would go to uncles and aunts, but  once, for some strange reason I can't even imagine today, we were  boarded with Miss Latham.  Miss Latham, probably heart of gold, and though running a school  and all that, had really little experience of coping day to day with two  reasonably active type boys. A state of more or less seige developed  early. Alec and 1, sorry to say, spent a lot of our time devising happenings that would fox Miss Latham.  Once 1 remember we got to the school early, rounded up our  archers, and prevented the girls from getting into the hall. They were  all standing out there, some of them crying, on the cobbled street  when Miss Latham arrived.  1 was made, in token of surrender, to publicly kiss the senior girl.  Josephine Dickens, granddaughter of Charles Dickens, wilh Penelope  looking on. It was the most perfunctory kiss that ever met a cheek.  But there you are, you see. 1 can say thai I have kissed the granddaughter of Charles Dickens. There are people about who prize autographs of Charles Dickens, people who have never kissed so much as  a distant aunt of Charles Dickens.  Does this matter? Is this simply another idiotic case of 'celebrity"'  Or is it, in fact, just a nice little warm story. 1 quote from the poet,  once Poet Laureate, John Betjeman:  O Peggy Cusl how pure you were  My first and purest love. Miss Purey Cast!  Satchel on back I hurried up West Hill  to catch you on your morning walk to school  Your nanny with you and your golden hair  Streaming like sunlight. Strict deportment made  You hold yourself erect and every step  Bounced up and down as though you walked on springs  Your ice blue eyes, your lashes long and light  Your sweetly freckled face and turned-up nose  So haunted me that all my loves since then  have had a look of Peggy Purey Cust.

It is only the complacent business owners and uninformed public who do not  welcome Free Trade.  Our manufacturing plants in  Ontario and BC look forward to  the ten-fold increase of our market and will be diligent in setting up distributors for our  products in the US.  It will also reduce our cost of  imported components for our  products.  I don't know if our US competitors are interested in a mere  10 per cent increase in their  market opportunity. The people  in BC scream murder when the  US puts a duty on our softwood  lumber, then the next day complain about Free Trade.  They complain about shutdowns al General Motors and  other parts' manufacturers, but  drive imported vehicles. I know  of dairy farmers complaining  about people getting their milk  south of the line and then purchasing $150,000 worth of  equipment in the US for their  farm to save some money.  It's pure hypocrisy. I read of  CCAFT members who oppose  Free Trade and drive to their  meetings in imported vehicles.  What litis country needs is  not a bunch of whiners, but  some people with get up and go,  some guts. Those that are willing to roll up their sleeves and  take advantage of the opportunity are called winners, not whiners.  Let's get on with Free Trade,  so we can ship our lumber and  other products.  And for those that cannot  compete, let them join the  CCAFT or the NDP or any  other group that caters to out-  of-date ideals and sob your way  into extinction.

Until next week - be good to  yourself.  by Joyce Ostry, 885-5343  Every year at this time we all receive that  tax envelope from our government and we  know it's tax time again. Since 1972, taxpayers who are blind or confined to a bed or  wheelchair have been able to claim a special  disability deduction on their income tax  return.  The rules that applied to the disability  deduction were changed in 1986. They were  broadened to include other impairments  which leave individuals with the same  degree of disability as those mentioned  above.  Tax reform  Under tax reform in 1988, the disability  deduction was convened to a non-refundable  tax credit. A non-refundable tax credit  reduces the amount of federal income tax  you pay. It is called "non-refundable"  because even if you do not need the full  amount to reduce your tax payable to zero,  you do not receive a refund for the difference.  You may be eligible for the disability  amount if you have a severe and prolonged  mental or physical impairment.  Impairments that could entitle you to the  disability amount include:  ��� legal blindness in both eyes ��� severe cardiorespiratory failure ��� profund deafness in  both ears ��� severe mobility impairment ���  severe mental impairment.  You may claim the disability amount for  yourself. You may also transfer to your  spouse or other 'supporting individual' the  portion of your disability amount that you do  not need to reduce your tax payable to zero.  Tax pamphlet  Revenue Canada Taxation publishes a  pamphlet entitled "How You Claim Ihe Disability Credit". This pamphlet includes an  application form to be filed out by your doctor and is available at your District Taxation  Office. Phone 1-800-663-1381 for information.

After the dreary days of  winter when our gardens seem  to be in hibernation, the sight of  spring flowery bulbs poking  their leaves through the ground  is very heartening.

Last year alone,  25,(KXI salmon Iry were put into  local creeks  As a witness lo and also a  participant in the enhancement  volunteers' day of netting the  salmon (mostly chiiin, some  coho) in Chaster and Roberts  Creek, I was geared up with the  excitement almost as much as  the volunteers. An invitation  from Rill Cliinnick to witness  the salmon capture was greatly  appreciated.  "Bring your own net." he  said, "and maybe you would  like to do more than watch.  How would you like to catch  your own spawner or two?"  To catch a salmon, not hurl il  and not have lo club it over the  head with a billy, lo me, was  really a thrilling thought.  So off to the creeks I went  on a rainy, cold November  morning. I was surprised lo find  thai there were close to 25 men  there, many with familiar faces,  all caught up in the rush of the  job.  Well, I may have been the  only woman, hut I'm no wimp  and when Bill suggested I try lo  net, he handed me his hip  waders.

Being last in line, I  snagged him. He was a beautiful chum, ahout 24 inches long,  still grey and spotted, without  any yellow blotches yet. Hurray!

Friends in Mesa write that Ihe  living is easy, Ihe pace of life is  relaxed and the prices are  'incredible." Gas, liquor, tobacco and food are all reasonable  anil plentiful. Our friends go out  every morning and pick a fresh  grapefruit off the Iree, fresh  oranges are ripe for the plucking. Arizona - here I come!

Jeni Wright, who makes her home in Vancouver, was backed up musically by Rob Des Cotes  on keyboard and guitar.  In her entertaining performances she uses pup-  pels and sniffed dinosaurs, each with its own  mum and character, which toon become very real  to the children who watch and listen, fascinated.  Jeni has the gift of drawing the children into  her acl and any vestiges of shyness soon disappear  as each child becomes involved  ll was the paticipation and joy of the children  thai made this a happy musical occasion, with little ones, unable to resist Ihe music on their feel  dancing with the natural vivacity of small people  with rhythm in Ihell souls. Some ol the moms had  a hard time keeping them under control, such was  their enthusiasm.  It is a special talent given 10 those who can  hold the attention and adoration of young children  whose attention span is generally fairly limited.  But there was not one moment of boredom to be  seen throughout the one-and-a half hour show.  Wright was horn in England, began her musical career in Israel, followed later by stints in coffee houses in London. She came to Canada in  1971 where she quickly established herself as a  musical therapist and children's entertainer with  the Dinosaur Revival Band.  Jeni  and  the  Dinosaur  Band  thrilled  a  young audience in Sechelt Feb. 22.

Wiiliin n week Sully's Cove  is buzzing over a bizarre new  development. The lint roof of  the De Lisle Block is accessible  by an inner stairway. Doc Corey  has discovered this and taken to  riding his bicycle  around tip there while  under the Influence, to  the amusement nnd  alarm of the villagers,  The local police have  been apprised of these  antics and, afraid lie  might topple over lite edge,  have ordered him to cease and  desist or face a charge of public  mischief.  By now, most of the dentist's  former patients are taking their  business elsewhere. It is  rumoured that the dentist is  preparing to leave town But  Doc Corey has another form of  leavetaking in mind.  It's close to midnight when I  hear lite sirens. The firetrttck  squeals past the rooming house  on two wheels heading for the  centre of the village. They've  had the odd fire in Sully's Cove  before but this sounds like a bad  one. I throw on my jacket and  head over there.  Just as I half suspect, it's the  De Lisle Block. The wooden  '...suddenly  ajigure  appears on  the roof...'  second storey is on fire. Smoke  is goiiling in a great grey column up the dark sky  Most of the lire is still confined to the building's interior  but Haines are starling lo finger  through along the edges. The  fire department volunteers have  already connected their hoses  and are directing streams of  water at the blaze. A sizeable  crowd has gathered,  some with coats  hastily thrown on  over night clothes.  Suddenly a figure  appears on the roof,  wildly pedalling a  bicycle; shouting  incoherent words.  Doc Corey, drunk, drug-driven,  has totally given way to his  madness. Like a suicidal  dervish, he wheels by beyond  the fringe of flames and disappears from view again.  "Get that maniac down from  there!" someone shouts. But no  one has the slightest idea how to  get him down. The firemen can  only direct their hoses. The  white-faced crowd can only  watch aghast.  Doc Corey wobble: into  view again. It must be hotter  than hell's hinges up there but  by some mad effort of will he's  still going. Unbelievably as he  pedals past, he gives what  appears lo be a jaunty little  wave. Then he circles out of  sight again.  ( * Loadc^ycuimrm ofJ\v2&.

There is a model spacecraft, beaded graphics, realistic  depictions of hockey players  and surreal drawings of melting  skulls, paper plate collages to  hand-tinted photography.  It's bright and bold and  eclectic.  But one of Ihe most interesting points about the arts centre's latest exhibition is the ages  of the artists - they range from  two-yeatvold to about 18.  At Ihe Young People's Own  Art Show, now on display at the  arts centre, there's everything  from collections of macaroni  and confetti assembled with  glue and food colouring to oil  and acrylic paintings at a  sophisticated level.  Now in it's eighth season at  the centre, the show runs for  four weeks each year, a collobo-  rative effort between curator  Larry Westlake, art teacher  Wendy Simmons, and countless  teachers and Students all over  Ihe Coast who create and enter  work to be displayed.  Among other things, the  Chamber  trio to treat  Twilight  Trio Amahile, three stunningly talented musicians, join  forces for this season's final  concert in the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council's Countryside  Concerts series.  Kathleen Rudolph, flute  (principal with CBC Vancouver  Orchestra and VSO), Eugene  Osadchy, cello (VSO. Vetta  Quartet) and Linda Lee  Thomas, piano (VSO and  V1VEZA) form this powerful  chamber music ensemble. All  three are members of the Vancouver Symphony orchestra.  Trio Amabile. Italian for  friendly threesome, will perform a varied program featuring  the music of Haydn, Weber and  Villa-Lobos.  Sponsored hy Arts Council  Volunteers, the concert is at the  Twilight Theatre in Gibsons,  March 8 at 2 pm. Tickets are  $15. For Information, call 886-  2324 or 885-4402.  Curator l.urrv Westlake  show provides young artists  with the external reinforcement  that their work is good, enjoy  able and worth doing, says  Westlake. "There's a different  kind of delight when a kid realizes that other people like it  besides mom and dad."  It also gives young people a  chance to look at art that is relevant to their own lives, which  is always important in developing cultural interest, he says.  Older students who are  aware of the show often start  planning pieces specifically to  display in it, says Westlake. In  addition, a number of students  who've displayed work in the  show in the past have since  gone on lo pursue their art at the  post-secondary level.  In the current exhibition,  there are between 500 and 600  pieces.  In some respects, young people's art is decidedly different  from that of adult artists, says  Westlake. "Younger people are  noi as self-conscious and not as  skilled at hiding their true  selves, so the art shows their  feelings much more honestly  than is necessarily the case in an  older artist," he says.  But at the same time, he  says, even the work of a  preschooler represents a fairly  universal creative process. "It's  an attempt lo see ourselves and  the way we work, with a material product, which is a lasting  expression that other people can  understand."  Reactions of the children  themselves can range from  those who single-mindedly seek  out their own work on the walls  lo those who run around excitedly commenting on everything  they see, says Westlake.  In addition to creating  works, some of the older stu  dents also arrange and hang the  art for the show with assistance  from Simmons and Westlake.  Initial submission of work is  made by the schools, The final  selection and placement of art  on each wall is then left up to  this group of senior students.  Two young artists from the  exhibition are also selected by a  panel of working local artists  for special recognition, which  includes a S100 award donated  by the Sunshine Coasl Teachers  Association and the local  Rotary Club The awards, given  to one sludent 12 or under and  one student 13 or older, are  meant lo recognize and encour  age early talent, says Westlake  "You don't need piercing comments or astute observations.'  This year, the winner in the  12-and-under group is eight  year-old Matthew Berger,  whose pieces include handmade crayons, a viking ship  model and a bird cage made of  old-fashioned electrical wire. In  the 13-and-over group, winner  Zoe MacKenzie's art includes a  drawing incorporating ink and  wash techniques called "Mourners Benchmen" and a photograph called "Frozen in Venus."  NEW?

Joel Johnstone photo  Trout Lake clean up proposed  Multi-level plan considered to stem tide of pollution  by Jant Seyd and Ruth Forrtttar  A growing problem of both aesthetic anil  environmental pollution at Trout Lake has  prompted a recommendation from the regional district's outdoor recreation advisory committee (ORAC) that a multi-jurisdictional  team be formed lo deal with proper management of the area.  And it wouldn't be a bad idea to provide  some basic facilities, such as garbage cans,  picnic tables, and nuthouses - which could  prevent recreational users from spreading  their trash throughout the great outdoors,  members of ORAC say.  Providing better services will likely mean  an increase in daytime recreational users, says  Bob Rebantad, a member of ORAC and recreation officer with the Forest Service, which  currently has jurisdiction over the Trout Lake  area. But it's also likely to cut down on pollution. "Numbers of people alone doesn't make  up impact," said Rebantad. "It's what people  do there that matters. It's the type of use that  degrades it."  Among ihe measures recently recommended in a preliminary report by Rebandtad are  plans to cut off highway access to the lake,  creating a new access and parking area off  Trout Lake road, provision of a picnicing area  with tables and firepits, and provision of out  houses and trash cutis. The forest service says  this would result in greater safely on Highway  101 and concentration of activity around Ihe  provided facilities.  The plan would involve management hy  the ministries of parks, (uresis and highways,  the regional district, the RCMP and the Hall-  moon Bay water district! The ideas should  'This is a serious  situation. Not only is  Trout Lake a popular  recreation area but it's  part of the regional  water supply.'  -Barn Janyk  also be discussed by the Halfmoon Buy planning committee before going lo the economic  development commission and the regional  district, said Rebantad.  Although pollution at Troul Lake has  existed for some time, the current level of the  problem was pointed oul by Barry Janyk. a  local citizen active in environmental and  recreation issues. He presented a report to  ORAC expressing concern over the extent of  miscellaneous garbage found in and around  Trout Lake, which included broken bottles  and bottle caps, cans, six-pack plastic rings,  empty cigarette packs and butts, old running  shoes, socks, assorted over and undergarments, rags and paper lowels.  Particularly disturbing were items such as  coniaminated kitty litter dumped close to the  lake, human feces, some within five feet of  the water, condoms, tampons, other feminine  hygiene products, and disposable diapers -  one of which was found floating in the lake.  "This is a serious situation." said Janyk.  "Noi only is Trout Lake a popular recreation  area, but it's a pari of the regional district  waler supply."  Further examples of garbage in the lake  area included old blankets and sleeping bags,  various auto parts such as upholstry, interior  molding and engine components. The  SCRD's "Power Boats Prohibited" sign was  also found floating face up in the lake.  "Its present condition, both from a recreational and hygiene standpoint, is appalling,"  Janyk's report concluded.  Further meetings are expecled to follow  between the various government agencies and  the residents of Halfmoon Bay.

That was the verdict from  Tim Anderson, secretary-treasurer for the school board, on  the latest budget figures.  "Our preliminary estimates  do indicate we're going to have  a tough time," said Anderson.  "We are currently facing a  shortfall of about $250,000."  This will likely mean tightening up at the end of the  school year, Anderson added.  But the situation on the Sunshine Coast still isn't as dire as  other district's in the province.  Unlike some boards, which  have said drastic staff cutbacks  will be necessary to meet their  budgets, staff reductions on the  Coast have been kept to a minimum, said Anderson.  Elphie improves  Elphinstone secondary  school has been moving forward in leaps and bounds over  the past few years. And principal Marlyn Wilson wants the  community to know aboul it.  To do that, Elphinstone has  recently produced a "Report to  the Community" to be distributed to homes throughout Roberts  Creek and Gibsons. The report  gives Information on topics  Mich as provincial exam results,  unique programs in the school  and progress in attendance rates.  "It's 0 nice idea that the  community gels a report from  ihe school every few years,"  says Wilson. "Thai way people  get the facts aboul the school  rather than forming an opinion  on the basis of rumour."

As usual, local businesses  strongly supported Ihe teams,  providing the necessary funds to  cover the cost of equipment and  uniforms. In 1991, 26 businesses donated over one third of the  funds required to operate the  league. The balance of funds  was raised from registrations  and fundraising activities.  This year, organizers are  expecting an increase in enrollment.

The association is also  planning a coaching clinic and  umpires clinic again this year  and hopefully someone will  undertake to co-ordinate those  activities.  "Gibsons Minor Ball has  always received good support  from parents," said Jake  Swaney, association president.  "Already one parent has volunteered lo co-ordinate fields for  games, practices and make-ups.  Another has volunteered to be  the lottery fundraiser chairperson," said Mr. Swaney. "This  year, we hope that parents who  have skills other than coaching  skills, will also volunteer their  services to help make this year  the best yet."  Being part of baseball BC  Minor Ball Association also has  its rewards. Players from the  Bronco teams attended an invitational tournament in Mission  and won the event. Also, one  lucky young lady.

Rob Buchan,  MUNICIPAL PLANNER AND APPROVING OFFICER  httMBB  aMamaaaai  mM 20  Coast News, Main h 2, 1992  news  Elphie  forest  planning  revived  After languishing in the doldrums since 1988. efforts to  draw up a forest land resource  use plan (LRUP) for the Mount  Elphinstone region have been  revived.  Ministry of Forests resource  officer Brian Hawrys said he  does not expect sweeping  changes to the earlier LRUP  terms of reference, after interested groups attended a first  meeting recently. He said the  LRUP committe will comprise  about 10 people, representing  community groups (Roberts  Creek Community Association.  ForestWatch and Concerned  Coast Residents), lite SCRD,  environmental agencies, forest  service, industry (lnterfor, Can-  for) small business and woodlot  licensees. "We're keeping the  number to as few as possible to  represent both industry and the  community."  The LRUP process is u step  lo resolve conflict between the  indus'..-y's clearcut logging prescriptions and the community's  desire to see a selective logging  approach in the Mount Elphinstone region. Concerned Coast  Residents presented the MOF  with a 43-page brief of their  "We're attempting to use a consensus approach and I was quite  satisfied, as were most people,  that that approach is being  taken." Concerned Coast Resident Jan Brinton agreed. "It's  progressing," she said. "And it's  a more manageable size than  the Tetrahedron (LRUP)."  Forest  report  pervasive  from page 1  practices can be modified, and  what actions are needed in the  next three years.  "It's quite pervasive," says  Brad Benson, a member of the  old-growth sub-committee  working on the Tetrahedron  land resource use plan. He  added the report has far-reaching implications for future forest practice.  For instance, annual allowable cuts would be worked out  on a landscape (watershed)  basis, rather than arrived at as  they are now, by calculation of  the amount of fibre growing in a  broad timber supply area.  "The logging industry better  read this," Benson recommended.  "Foresters are going to be set  back on their ears when they  realize the full impact of the  strategy report."  Benson predicted that awareness of Ihe importance of old-  growth and the attendant danger  of losing it will grow as a result  of the project. "We're going to  have some old-growth," he said.  "Not just in parks here or there,  but on a local landscape level."

BC Hydro has lured an outside mediator, ARA  Consulting Group. 10 orchestrate discussions  between concerned Coast gtoups and Ihe power  company in an attempt to find consensus for recommendations regarding Hydro's herbicide policy.  The goal of the 'vegetation management group'  is lo set up a long-term management plan that will  satisfy the largest number of people while still getting Hydro's brash cleared along the power lines.  The "facilitator" foi the discussion group,  ARA's Julie Paul, said the Sunshine Coast had  been chosen because Hydro's si.iikI.iuI approach to  herbicide use has been strongly protested by residents here in the last couple of years The indication is those protests will continue.  "The resident groups expressed concern thai  they weren't being given an opportunity fot input  into the process." Paul explained.  Residents worry that herbicides used to kill  hrush will make iheir way into the Coast's water  supplv They maintain Hydro hasn't done an  acceptable job of testing the herbicides to prove  they are safe.  To compound Hydro's problem, the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRTJ) recently declared  the Sunshine Coasl a pesticide-free zone. This has  resulted in Hydro looking for new ways to deal  wilh the problem of killing brush in the area, with-  oul sparking controversy.  "Prior 10 this. BC Hydro would develop, on an  annual basis, their vegetation management' plan  for the area," Paul said "They would meet with  the regional district...discuss the plan, make some  changes to it, and off they went...They realize this  has In change."  The discussion group comprises members from  the local governments, sporting clubs, the health  unit, environmenlal groups the Ministry of Forests,  etc.  Their firsl meeting was held last week and  meetings will continue lo be held once a month.  For now, however, the meetings aren't open to the  public.
