 VXU UUi J-d ,  V8V 1X5  Atten: Rod Cardin  94.9  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  December 13,1993 Volume 47 Issue 50  Oh,  those  crafty  auxiliary  members  Members of  St. Mary's  Auxiliary  Halfmoon Bay  Branch sell  their baked  and  handcrafted  goods in  Sechelt over  the weekend.  The auxiliary  through all of  its hard work,  craft sales and  thrift store  sales, raises  over one  hundred  thousand  dollars  annually for  the Coast's  hospital  facility.  Joel Johnstone  photo  Coast traffic flagger killed in gale force winds  by Ian Cobb and Darah Hansen  A 35-year-old Gibsons woman was  killed during the fierce winter storm that  roared over the Sunshine Coast Dec. 9  while flagging traffic for BC Hydro emergency crews.  Kelly Gallagher was working as a flag  person near Chatelech Secondary School in  Sechelt when she was struck by a falling  tree.  Sechelt RCMP constable Paul Stevens  initiated CPR on Gallagher "within minutes of the accident occurring," police  report. Gallagher was removed to St.  Mary's Hospital and from there she was  transported to Vancouver General Hospital  (VGH).  St. Mary's Hospital administrator Ted  Wright said Gallagher couldn't be treated  at the Sunshine Coast facility because "the  nature of the injury(s) was such that a  major hospital in Vancouver was better  equipped to deal with it."  Doctors at St. Mary's sought the quickest means to transport the patient to Vancouver bul because of       the near hurricane force  winds, air transport was  ruled out.  Thus, the 8:20 p.m.  ferry out of Langdale  was held for IS minutes  until  the ambulance       arrived.  "She was alive and in critical condition  when she left (St. Mary's)," Wright said.  Soon after arriving at VGH, the victim  was removed to Ihe University of British  Columbia's University Hospital. A UBC  hospital official confirmed that Gallagher  'She was alive and in  critical condition when  she left St. Mary's'  -Ted Wright  died Dec. 10. No other details were  released.  Gallagher was part of an Ansan Flagging crew, contracted by BC Hydro, that  arrived at the Cowrie/Barnacle Street area,        at the turn-off to CSS at  3:25 p.m., to deal with  downed power lines.  The crew repaired the  damage and departed  but returned liter  because trees had fallen        over the wires, snapping  power poles and dropping wires.  The hydro crew managed to clear a single lane of traffic and students and staff  trapped in the school were able to leave.  At about 6:00 p.m., Gallagher was  struck by the falling tree as she directed  traffic.  Wilson, Tyabji  hauled back into  national limelight  by Jane Seyd  Just when he figured the glare  of the public spotlight was dimming, local MLA Gordon Wilson  was thrust back into Ihe news this  week as a national cover story on  both his personal and political trials this year hit the newstands.  A cosy shot of Wilson and  MLA Judi Tyabji, Wilson's former house leader, is splashed  across the front of the  December issue of      Saturday Night, a  prestigous feature  magazine based in  Toronto.  Inside, a story  titled "I Got You  Babe" by western  editor Kenneth Whyte  sets oul both the personal and partisan ������**"���  tribulations of the  couple, while photos of the jeans-  clad MLAs hugging, smooching  and playing with Tyabji's three  children provide a backdrop.  While not a searing attack, the  article certainly isn't flattering to  Wilson, laying out his political  failures as caused by his own  feelings of infallibility and insen-  sitivity to those around him.  Described as initially "amicable and brighl" with "a good  grasp of many issues" Wilson  was according to Whyte nevertheless a "loner, a romantic and a  political hobbyist": qualities  which later made for trouble.  The article traces Wilson's  rise from political obscurity to his  crushing defeat at this September's Liberal leadership convention, providing more than a few  titillating details of his romance  wilh Tyabji along the way.  7 wasn't out to  get anybody. I  was simply  doing my job'  -Kenneth Whyle  This week, however, Wilson  took issue with much of what was  written about him.  "It's factually incorrect," he  said from his office in Victoria.  "It perpetuates a lot of the rumour  and innuendo and half-truths that  we lived with for the year."  When he saw the article, said  Wilson, "I was very angry."  "It's an extremely vitriolic  article written by  somebody who  frankly doesn't have  a clue what went on  because he doesn't  even live in the  province of British  Columbia."  In particular, Wilson said he was upset  by quotes and details  attributed to unnamed  Liberal sources in the  article, who claimed to have seen  Wilson and Tyabji behaving in a  less-than-parliamentary fashion  behind half-closed office doors.  "I take strong issue with that.  That's simply not true and in my  judgment is a libelous comment,"  said Wilson.  Other details were provided by  political opponents (including  former party whip Gary Farrell-  Collins) who have a vested interest in seeing his demise, said Wilson.  But last Thursday, the author  of the article said he's standing  by his story. Speaking from his  office in Edmonton, Whyte said  he took a cautious approach gel-  ting information for the piece:  "We were fully aware there were  people in the party who had it in  for Gordon and Judi," he said.  Unnamed sources were used,  Gordon Wilson and Judi Tyabji on the cover of Saturday Night.  said Whyte, because "people  wouldn't go on the record." But  he added the details printed in the  article came from several different people, whose stories added  up to the same scenario.  Wilson and Tyabji also volunteered a lot of the information  themselves throughout several  lengthy interviews which were  tape-recorded, said Whyte. "They  were very co-operative wilh me."  While agreeing both he and  Tyabji spent "many, many hours"  talking to the writer about their  lives as well as posing for a two-  hour photo shoot, Wilson said  they were both misled about what  the final article would focus on.  But Whyte said Thursday that  comment isn't accurate. "I never  told him anything other than I  wanted to get his point of view,"  he said. "Frankly, going in I had  no idea about them ... I didn't  promise him a nice story."  Whyte said while both Wilson  and Tyabji had been amicable at  a personal level, "I think Ihey  were fundamentally dishonest  about the nature of their relationship  "I wasn't out to get anybody. I  was simply doing my job," he  said.  Meanwhile, Wilson said from  now on he will only be interviewed on political subjects and  aboul his job as MLA.  "I've had enough of it all."  Workers' Compensation Board public  affairs manager Richard Woloshen said his  office is beginning an investigation into the  accident.  Gallagher is survived by two young  children.  Local RCMP detachments and volunteer fire departments were kept hopping  during the storm.  At least two homes have been reported  damaged from falling trees. The first,  located on Stalachen Drive received extensive damage, but no one was injured. The  second home was located on East Porpoise  Bay Road.  BC Hydro field operations manager Les  Chutskoff said the majority of the Egmont  and Pender Harbour area was left without  power as were areas around Roberts Creek  and Sechelt.  Local  dancers  hoping  to tap  in on  arts scene  by Ian Cobb  If art had a parking lot on the  Sunshine Coast, the lot would  be full all save one spot - set  aside for dance.  Four Coast residents are  driving a vehicle headed for that  spot, towing a trailer filled with  local talent, and hope lo make  the spot a permanent one.  Lois Smith, Verity Purdy and  Nicki and Paul Blakey are the  cornerstones lo the Sunshine  Coast Dance Society, formed to  help promote dance as part of  an artistic community.  "We wanted to create a  group that had enough clout,"  said Nicki Blakey, explaining  they sought people with the  know how in all aspects of  dance, from talent and stage  management, choreography,  costume-making, fund raising  and lobbying.  With the credentials of the  four, one would think they  should be setting up shop in  Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver.  Smith was Canada's first  Prima Ballerina and carries with  her an air of dance royalty,  Purdy's past is varied and too  vast to mention in this sentence  and the Blakey's have paid their  dues with the Royal Winnipeg  Ballet and Germany's Kiel  Opera/Ballet Company.  turn to back page  Remembering the  Montreal  massacre by ,  candlelight   0  Shornecliffe  couple celebrate  65th Q  anniversary  O  THE POOR:  battling legislated  .poverty on 4*  Coast       10  Arts council  Christmas crafts  flogged     ^3  Westwind wows  with wonderful  windpipes   \ 5  Wilson says Liberal  party owes him  more than just  fond        q j  memories   at  a_M Coast News, December 13,  1993  ��� ��� ���  te. -^-V WE ARE OPEN SUNDAYS  ����   FROM 10-4 PM  KafeKitago sends  warm wishes  for the Holiday Season  /__*C*^��--^  4-5689 Cowrie St.* 885-8837  SS Ml  news  RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER  Bistrict of ihtthtlt  P.O.

Reid requested at Thursday  night's meeting that Pender Harbour be considered as a transit  route.  Meanwhile, SCRD chair  Peggy Connor said the board is  still hopeful weekend and night  bus service to existing routes  around the Coast will come into  being within the next six months.  Salmonid enhancement  A request was made to the  regional board by Bill Chinnick  of the Sunshine Coast Salmon  Enhancement Society for  $10,000.

Gibsons RCMP detachment  Corp. Robin Blair said police  will once again be out in force on  Sunshine Coast byways from  Dec. 8toJan.3.  "We will be con-       ducting roadblocks  during that period of  time," he said,  adding Christmas is  "traditionally" a time  when more people  tend to get behind  hol-related accidents being passengers in the drunk driver's car.  Of the 180 people killed in  1991, 32 were between the ages  of 16 and 20. Another 1,074 people in that age category were  "We will be  conducting  roadblocks  during that  the wheel of a car   period of time'  impaired. ��� ,  What     people -Robin Blalre  won't know is where    ���������������  and when the police  will be setting up shop.  "It all depends on what other  crime is happening at the time,"  Blair said.  Insurance Corporation of  British Columbia statistics provide a clear reason as to why  they get involved with the police  every year at this time to try and  stem the often fatal-tide of drinking drivers.  In 1991, drinking driving was  the fourth major cause of motor  vehicle accidents in BC - but  even more alarming, alcohol-  related accidents claimed the  lives of 180 British Columbians -  or one-third of all traffic fatalities.  In addition, statistics warn  passengers to stay away from  vehicles driven by suspected  impaired drivers, with 31 per  cent of all people killed in aico-  Locally, no one was killed in  the Gibsons and Sechelt detachment areas last year because of  impaired drivers, but two were       killed in 1992.  The    cost    of  impaired   driving  isn't just in human  lives -  ICBC estimates 21 cents out  of every premium  dollar   is    spent  repairing the damage   inflicted   by  impaired drivers.  ������������        In      addition,  $130-million    is  spent annually on enforcement,  court and medical services and  other costs in BC.  The penalties for impaired  driving range from a maximum  fine of $2,000 and six months in  jail for a first time offender to a  maximum jail term of five-years  if Crown Counsel proceeds on an  indictable offence to a second-  time offender.With each new  offence, the penalties become  stiffen  Should an impaired driver  cause bodily harm, a conviction  carries a ten-year maximum sentence and if the driver kills someone, the jail term runs from 14-  years and up.

The problem centres around the kind of  sewage system required by the proposed 3.5  acre, 14-unit complex.  Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD)  director for Roberts Creek, Brett McGillivray,  expressed concern over the construction of a  'batch plant' sewage system when, as yet, no  standards of construction have been defined  by SCRD policy.  With no such standards, McGillivray said:  "The worst case scenario is Woodcreek Park."  Problems with the sewage system at the  Woodcreek Park subdivision near Gibsons  date back to 1987, culminating last winter in  raw sewage surfacing on the drain field.  McGillivray said, although the St. Aidan's  project is much smaller than Woodcreek, an  SCRD policy on sewage system standards of  construction and maintenance would still be  applicable.  Proponents of the St Aidan's proposal say  they're disappointed by the negative reaction  by the community. Reverend Esther North,  rector of the Anglican parish which owns the  site, said the church is trying to do "something  responsible" with the land.  North said an inquiry into the need for  low-income housing appeared favourable to  Roberts Creek residents prior to the formal  application for rezoning and construction.  The plan, outlined by architect Dick  Williams to the regional district planning  committee earlier in the year, would see seven  duplexes of seniore housing built on ihree and  a half acres of the property, while one and a  half acres would be used for a future church  community centre.  In order for the development to go ahead,  the property - currently designated for public  and institutional use - would require rezoning.  North said that proposal has not been withdrawn although North said the church will  probably be looking at other options.  SKOOKUM  CHRYSLEi  The Sunshine Coast Recreation Committee as of November.

The commission was formed  following a recommendation  three years ago by the Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants (PERC) - a  study struck by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District.  "Seven executive members  were selected from many applicants in the early fall and, as of  Nov. 10, the commission has  reached its full compliment.  Seven additional commission  members have been appointed  based on their commitment to a  broad definition of recreation  for the entire Sunshine Coast,  and experience in committee  work," says the SCRC news  release.

As part of  the downsizing, the SCACL has  been asked to cease operation of  its Gibsons group home,  Fairview House.  The SCACL, which operates  Fairview House for three ex-  Woodlands residents with 11-12  staff persons and an annual budget of $369,096, has been under  investigation for violations of the  community care facilities licencing act in the operation of the  facility since April.  Shortly after the investigation  began, the SCACL was issued an  interim operations permit allowing the society to continue running Fairview House contingent  upon three month and six month  reviews by the Ministries of  Health, and Social Services.  The first review was completed last month, and according to  Brian McCaughey, social services district manager for mental  handicapped services, "it was  our feeling that the best interests  of the residents would be served  by placements elsewhere."  McCaughey said a large problem continuing to operate  Fairview House is the amount of  professional assistance needed.  "We have exhausted all of our  options," McCaughey said.

McCaughey feels the Ministry's decision is going to mean  a big change for the SCACL, in  terms of staffing and finances.  MSS and the association are  looking at options for the use of  Fairview house, possibly with  renovations as independent living  accommodation for mentally  handicapped or mentally ill peo-  pie.  McCaughey felt that there  would be no real savings to the  ministry by closing the home  because "these people will have  to be cared for by someone,"  although he acknowledged that  there could be some savings in  reduced costs in the operations at  the facility.  SCACL   president   Frank  Schmidtt in an interview Tuesday, said the decision to downsize Fairview was 'in the best  interest of the clients,' and that  the society would be offering a  placement for one of the residents.  Schmidtt indicated that an  SCACL committee and the board  of directors were exploring alternative uses for the facility.  He also said that under the  society's existing labour contract,  those Fairview workers with  greater seniority would be able to  displace workers at the society's  other group home in Sechelt or  life skills workers.  The Sechelt facility currently  has one resident one full-time  staff member and two part-time  staff.

Unfortunately, alcohol often plays an unforeseen part in our festivities, particularly when we drive after drinking.  Many of us say we won't drive after socking back a few  Christmas drinkies - but, occasionally, after one or two  eggnogs, many of us will still clamber behind the wheel  and hit that shiny-black, rain-soaked.

Let's make them stand outside in the rain shining flashlights into sober faces this Christmas season, and let's  send them home after a shift without one Driving-While-  Impaired to their credit.  Loud response to  silent seven  The Coast News received a letter of apology last week,  not for anything done to the paper specifically, but more of  an apology to the community.  The letter was from seven girls from Chatelech Secondary who, it seems, committed grave acts of vandalism  to their school and got caught.  "This incident has helped us to think about what can  happen because of what we do, that we affect other people  and that there are consequences to every situation," reads a  portion of the missive. "...We hope this letter will help people realize that not every teenager is out to destroy property  or to be mischievious, sometimes we just make mistakes."  Well done girls, we applaud you for your insight and for  what is indubitably heartfelt remorse. One detail, however.  You forgot to sign the letter. Or at least you neglected to  include your names. "Seven girls from Chatelech Secondary" you wrote.  It seems that, rather than straighten out your image in the  community by sending this letter, you have inadvertently  dragged many of your innocent friends into the soup with  you. Every female student at Chatelech is now slightly sus- .  pect in the minds of the community as no one really knows  who the culprits are.  Yes, the letter was a brave and noble idea, but without  the real and necessary weight of your identities, it appears  to be little more than an appeasement tactic for dealing  with your families, teachers and the police - the people who  already know what you're guilty of.  We chose to withhold tlie letter, and in its present form it  will never run in the Coast News. If you should ever buck  up enough to make the apology legitimate, whether individually or as a group, there is letter space available, and  it'll have your names on it  signed  A Concerned Adult  opinion  Rockwood  says thanks  On Friday evening Dec. 3,  the Christmas lights at Rockwood Centie were turned on and  the 1993 Christmas season officially began on the Sunshine  Coast.  The flicking of the switch  and the wonderful evening that  followed was made possible  because of the generous gifts of  time and resources by a large  number of people.  The staff of Rockwood  would like to thank the following groups and individuals:  Pharmasave in Sechelt, Rick  and Carol at Sechelt Hardware,  Dave Lamb at Home Hardware,  Claytons Heritage Market and  Lee at GBS for the generous  donation of Christmas bulbs;  George Simpson for the artistic  display; The Festival of the  Written Arts for sharing its  power, Rockwood Board President Dave Allen and Mayor-  elect Earl Basse for words of  welcome and encouragement lo  "Let there be Light"; Loretta  and Frank Bonkowski and the  Bethel Baptist Youth Choir for  singing in the multitudes; fabulous MCs Reg and Lynne Dickson; Ann Konopasek and Carleen Rudland, Judy Beagan,  Richard Price and Ariene  Collins entertainers extraordinaire; Gordon Webber and Reg  Dickson for professional stage  set-up; the Sunshine Coast  News and the Press; Joan  Munro for her willingness to  "resource share", the District of  Sechelt, Tom Snowdon - chef  par excellence, Laurene Reid,  Anne Gregory, Carol Oslie,  Mary Findlay, John Vance,  Mike and Maureen Smythe,  Barb Whitby, Laura Petula,  Melody Wollen, Terry McBride  and Bill Bailey for lending their  willing hands to all of the  details. Most important of all,  thank you Sunshine Coasters for  coming, in droves.  It was a wonderful evening  and serves as an excellent example of the incredible power of  community.  A Merry Christmas to all and  a best ever new year.  ROCKWOOD LODGE  SOCIETY  Sechelt  Blame technology  Regarding Chatelech vandalism - the help that I offer is in  the cryptic phrase "The Medium  is the Message." The detached  self-interest groups are the  guilty parties, not the kids who  did the damage.  The idea of cleaning up a  mess ought to be applied to  landfills and societies waste  problems.  What about the mess of  clearcuts? Do the corporate logging companies' taxes cover the  costs of industrial waste? Turn  the bricks over. See the other  side.  The students' so-called rebellious natures point directly into  the heart of the fluorescently lit,  electrically draining, over-heated, stuffy classrooms of the so-  called educational structure.  The intuitive nature of rebellion says look this direction. It is  a mistake of the school boards  to accept the computer as the  alternative direction to learning  the reading and writing skills of  communication. A keyboard  could be an old Underwood.

The genuine natural lead-up  to the sophisticated machinery  of the electronic medium of the  computer technology is learning  to spell words correctly by hand  with the pencil.  Finger painting in kindergarten is graffiti without the  spray bomb.  The school boards ought to  think more than twice before  accepting free computers from  IBM, or the Apple people. I  hope the education system is  learning a valuable lesson from  the expressive nature of graffiti.  Once again the medium is the  message.  The so-called rebellious  nature of those who use graffiti  to express themselves are picking up on what it takes to get  their message across.  There is a search going on to  discover the material one his  empathy with.  Whichever medium is available will be tried. It is a process  of elimination and it is up to the  educators to provide a positive  (not negative) environment for  that learning process to happen.  The medium of computers  might be fine for tax write-offs  of the producers of computers  by arranging politically, a system of electronic classroom  mazes. It is not so fine for the  students.  K. RECEVEUR  Gibsons  Silence and shrewdness in the herding of the sheep  The village of Sorn in southwest Scotland is a  picturesque little place, folded into wooded hills  along the valley of the River Ayr just at the edge of  the bleak and uncompromising Glasgow Moor.  Fertile and verdant fields stretch west to the sea  some IS miles away.  It was to a field on the edge of the moorland  just above the village we went in the fall to watch  the local sheepdog trials.  I have been fascinated with the working sheepdog, the border collie, all my life. There will be  those among our readers who will remember the  fine representative of the breed who was my companion of 16 years until her end this past summer  in Colorado.  Increasingly popular and fashionable in Canada  and the United States, they are renowned for intelligence and very attractive in shape and size. The  chief delight, however, is watching them doing  what they were born and bred to do, the herding of  sheep.  There are such things as national sheep dog trials pitting the best dogs of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales against each other.  The sheepdog trial we attended above the village of Sorn was no national occasion. We seemed  the only tourists in attendance.  There was a variety of vehicles facing up a gentle incline to a low horizon Around tbe vehicles or  in them were working shepherds and farmers come  together in amiable competition and with them, of  musings  course, their dogs.  There were 75 different entries into the competition so there must have been at least that many  dogs present, most of them lying and sitting constrained by nothing but their own innate dignity.  Some were in care, but in or out almost all seemed  shrewdly interested in the activity of the competitor of the moment  They ire a remarkably silent breed. I remember  a neighbour on the Coast asking once if my dog  could bark.  "Sure", I said, "if she is taken by surprise she  gives the odd 'whoof." She showed her contempt  for the less restrained quite clearly.  The dogs at the sheepdog trials were absolutely  silent. One did bark once in the afternoon, one  bark. Its shepherd interrupted his conversation to  look at it in amazement. It was summarily confined  without a word and showed every evidence of  being shamed.  John burnside  The competitors and the judge were at the bottom of the field. Away on the horizon was the  unsung hero of the day and his dog. For each competitor the far-off shepherd and dog split off five  sheep from the flock penned out of sight and had  them waiting for the competing dog to 'lift'.  He was only a black silhouette on the horizon  and his dog a dark crouching in tlie distance but all  day they brought and held five sheep for the  entrants in perfect order.  When the competing shepherd sent his dog to  lift tlie sheep it took off wide in tlie characteristic  low, fast traverse of the terrain. Each dog went  wide to avoid alarming the sheep. From the lift at  the top of the slope the dog brought the five sheep  down through a gate halfway. Then the course led  around the pen at the bottom where the dog's master stood and near where the spectators chatted,  watched and evaluated. Around the pen and back  up to a second gate and across the field to a third,  then back down for the penning. Much of the difficulty came at the penning.  After the dog had brought the sheep around the  course, the shepherd opened the gate to the pen  holding the gate open by a rope attached to it The  length of the rope and the extension of his shepherd's crook gave him a fair distance which he  covered as a barrier to fractious sheep; the dog  held them on the other side.  The sheep don't want to be penned, or trapped,  and even when manoeuvred to the edge resist  entiy.  I congratulated one shepherd on his dog's penning performance. "Aye, she held them weel, but I  was worried that big lead ewe would jump at her  just at the last"  After the penning the sheep were released and  the last exercise was for the dog to separate two of  the five at the shepherd's indication. Hour after  hour the quiet, thoughtful men and their silent  shrewd dogs watched each other work. The  nuances of the work became clearer as the day processed with some hints from shepherds who pointed things out to us.  There was no high drama, just repeated subtle  tensions between dog and sheep and watchful man;  the spectators were participants and relished the  work quietly.  "He did weel, Wull," one shepherd observed to  a contestant coming off the course. He praised the  dog and its owner nodded, well pleased.

I  and relentlessly thereafter; and  about knocking over dinky little  Christmas trees and having to  duck and weave around tinsel  and displays of quite ordinary  stuff in the mall over the whole  of this same period, and longer  this year it seems; nonetheless  dear reader; this is going to be,  even as noted only on Dec. 13,  more or less about Christmas.  It could be that the mind is  getting soft, or softer you might  say, with advancing age. Or  maybe the general slackening of  the sinews is somehow bringing  down the defenses against the  untrammelled on-roll of the all-  in Consumer's Christmas, but I  find myself increasingly slipping along with it all. I like  Christmas I can tell myself quite  truly and what the hell, given  what is so often going on out  there, why not extend it just as  far as we can. November is  often a pretty grim sort of  month, why not try bleeding in  the first sleigh bells on Nov. 1,  say.  A background of looking forward to the Epiphany, might do  something to alleviate the general effect of much of the news we  can all be getting 24 hours a  day.  This year for example, the  GATT talks are coming to us  almost through the chantings of  Away In A Manger, etc. and this  perhaps can do nothing but soften the blows being dealt about  to individual communities  around the world. All of what is  going on in Brussels seems to  have an inevitability about it.  There is really nothing that  French farmers or Japanese rice  growers or many, many others  here and there and all over can  do about it. The only people  who for absolute sure are going  to benefit and benefit hugely,  from the coming agreement, are  the international conglomerate  corporations; and unless you  agree with a one-time cartoon  character, I think General Bull  Moose, who used to say "If it's  good for General Motors, it's  good for us", Ihis is not going to  raise much of an alleluia worldwide.  But, you say, as I used to say  and probably on occasions still  do, this is really too long to be  listening to the Christmas music.  Maybe it is the best of its kind,  and the most enduring, and for  us the most evocative; still, surely, it can go on too long. If we  start saturating the air waves  with it too soon by the time of  the festival itself we will all be  quite jaded with it; even wilh  Wenceslaus, even with Shepherds Watch, Green Grow the  Rushes, Greensleeves, We  Three Kings...the whole tradi-  in a nutshell  stuart nutter  tional lexicon, possibly wilh a  few personal exceptions which  might not be missed as it is.  Ah, some will say, but there  are now selves full of CDs containing fascinating new treatments of the old themes in many  of which it would take a sharp  ear indeed to recognize the old  song at all; C & W Little Town  of Bethlehems; rock Holy  Nights; flamenco It Came Upon  A Midnight Clears. And then  there are altogether new songs  being written all the time for  Christmas.  I am pretty well adrift in any  discussion of new CDs of any  sort but I'm certainly prepared  to believe all this. The new  songs written for Christmas I  lend to shy from in I support an  old-fashioned way. I never liked  White Christmas and I actively  hated It's Beginning to Feel  Like Christmas, for example.  Peter Gzowski had a man on  Morningside the other day, a  record collector who said he had  something like 70 versions of  Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, but Gzowsky declined to  listen to any of them and I concurred.  Just the same, given the perfection of the expertise we now  possess in production jigga-  reepokeree through this whole  field and given some judicious  programming, maybe we could  in fact extend the season and  leave us still wilh something  real at the end. If not tough fellows we will have lost the only  festival we've got.  Personally and regardless  Christmas will remain pretty  much the same for me, being  very much a matter of memories. There are a good many of  them but one that stays with me  is one that could have been as  bleak as any.  It was during the war and in  Torbay, Newfoundland not far  from St. John's. My friends had  been posted away and I was in  something like a snarly frame of  mind. I went into town and met  a submarine captain who was on  a stick. He had fallen down his  own conning tower and sprained  his ankle. He told me that he had  arranged a farmhouse for his  crew to have Christmas in and  we figured that it was not far  from our air station, and I invited him to our Christmas Eve  party and he came.  We outlasted the party and  were sitting in front of the firej  and got to talking about all the'  poor sods who were on duty this  cold and miserable night and  took a bottle of navy rum he had  produced, and went about pouring them a tot and singing them  a carol. Back at the fire I dozed  off and when I woke it was  morning and he was gone and  my boot was off my right foot,  and my sock was hanging from  the mantlepiece and in it the  remains of the rum. I followed  his footprints through the snow  by the mark of his stick to the  farmhouse and it was one of the  warmest and cheeriest Christ-  mases on record.  \_aJUM l*aarw-a,    t-aa"��ciIra-tri   r-a,     ,_...-��  SUSHI BAR  WEDNESDAY  ���THURSDAY  ���    SATURDAY  Lunch A Diniwr  DELIVERY e TAKE OUT ��� DINE IN  OMEGA RESTAURANT <#**��*�����  281 Gnwa-r Poini Road  SlaW-illll  3 CSS  !  ti  Your Search  is Over  There is a  World of Gifts  Waiting for You  at  letters  Men ami ro-fl.lo  a-aa-aaaamMiaaaaMOp-a-aeaan ar-.

Davis Bay 885-7285  V��*��  Bringing medical  controversy to light  Your article Medical Community Looks to Reduce Caesarean Births (Coast News, issue  49) brought to lighl the controversy which so many pregnant  families face.  Statistically one in five pregnant women with children at  home must decide between  another C-section or moving  into Vancouver late in pregnancy to await labour there. This is  because St. Mary's Hospital has  a no VBAC policy.  I believe this policy needs to  be re-examined in the light of  current evidence regarding the  risks of VBAC.  The evidence comes from a  1,500 page two volume book  entitled Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth, which  looked at studies in 60 journals  from 1950 onward and was published in 1989.  As I understand from your  article, a major reason for the no  VBAC policy is fear of rupture  of the old caesarean scar, requiring emergency C-section. Current evidence indicates that the  possibility of uterine rupture  from an old scar ranges from  0.09 to 0.22 percent in women  with one baby in the head down  presentation.  This is significantly less than  the one in 200 which your article quoted. In fact, to put these  numbers in perspective, the risk  of any pregnant woman requiring an emergency C-section for  an acute condition such as fetal  distress, cord prolapse or hemorrhage is 30 times as high as a  woman's risk of uterine rupture  from a previous C-section scar.  This is the essence of the controversy among local doctors.  If St. Mary's is not willing to  allow VBAC with its extremely  low risk of uterine rupture, then  it should not allow births which  have the risks mentioned above.  Of course, this would be  unthinkable because due to the  unforeseeable accidental nature  of those risks, no woman would  be allowed to birth at St. Mary's  and we'd all be moving into  Vancouver to have our babies  Ihere.  Let's take a look at what that  means.In 1989 I was pregnant  with twins and had to move to  Vancouver a month early to  await their birth.  This was a total disruption to  my son and partner who left  school and work to be with me.  This affected us physically,  emotionally, socially and economically.  Yet I was lucky in that I  could have my family with me.  What about the woman who  must move into town alone, perhaps unsupported because family cannot accompany her. These  disruptions are unacceptable if  the reasons for them are no  longer valid. The olher option  for a woman with a previous C-  section is another C-section, this  time planned.  Although C-section has  become accepted as safe (indicated by the high numbers of  them performed), what most  people don't know is that the  rate of maternal death due to  elective C-section is still nearly  four times that associated with  vaginal delivery.  C-section also has increased  risks of operative injury, fever  and effects on subsequent fertility, not to mention the psychological results.  Planned C-sections can result  in the birth of an immature  baby, one whose lungs are not  ready to breathe.  The pain and anxiety caused  by infant respiratory distress  syndrome could be prevented if  the mother was given the option  of trial of labour.  Considering that she already  has a family, a woman who  chooses a planned C-section will  probably do too much, too soon  and the pain and healing time  will be extended.  I believe it behooves the public to request that St. Mary's  Hospital re-examine their policy  toward VBAC delivery.  Thank you Coast News for  printing an article which hopefully will stimulate needed  change.

Or perhaps you'd like to  see the details of your own medical records?  If it's written down on government paper, the public has a  right to see it.  Thai's the basic theory, anyway, behind the new provincial  Freedom of Information and Privacy Act.  In practical terms, however, it  remains to be seen just how easy  or difficult it will be to get a look  at government files.  The new act, originally passed  by the government last year, covers most aspects of who gets to  see what in terms of information  collected, used, or produced by  public bodies.  In the simplest terms, you can  get access to personal files about  yourself, but not about others,  while everyone has access to  "general" information.  Request for material must be  submitted in writing and could  very well end up costing you  money.  :  I]  ��� ���  If the government agrees to  give out the material, it must be  released within 30 to 60 days. If  not, you can appeal the decision.  The first part of the act, covering over 200 provincial government ministries, boards and  agencies, came into effect Oct. 4.  Since then, some  government depart- ���������  ments have had  hundreds of  requests while others have had virtually none, says  Kyle Friesen of the  Information and  Privacy branch in  Victoria.  Bill 62, covering local public  bodies like municipal councils and          school    boards,  comes into effect in October of  1994.  But, adds Friesen, "They're  supposed to be acting in the spirit  of the information legislation  right now."  For most municipalities, the  10-month lead-up time is a  chance to get their files in order.  Ait Lew, administrator for the  District of Sechelt, says so far,  the main effect of the law has  been a "significant upgrade" to  the district's filing system, so  both current and past information  will be easier to find.  In terms of theoretical labour  costs to the district, "It's scary  because of the illusion of the  sheer magnitude of what could  happen," says Lew.

"It's not like there's a huge  pent-up demand."  Ironically enough, a fair portion of the Freedom of Information Act covering both provincial  and local government concerns a  list of exceptions to the act:  allowing various  departments to keep  certain information  hush-hush.  On a local level,  records of meetings  from which the  public is legitimately excluded - under  the Municipal Act  or the School Act,  for example - do not  have to be made  available.  On a provincial  level, examples in  which information does not have  to be released run all the way  from cabinet confidence and current intergovernmental negotiations - Including negotiations  over native self-government or  treaties - to information which  would result in a financial loss to  government, "prejudice the  defence of Canada", "harm security of property" or "threaten  public safety."  Even requests for personal  information can be denied if  there's a chance that giving it out  could result in "immediate and  grave harm to the applicant's  safety or mental or physical  health."  An override clause provides  for information to be given out if  not doing so would risk significant harm to the environment or  the health and safety of the pub-  Shop Easy .Logo  Louis Vlgnal, owner, presents Sechelt winner  Sharon /Anderchek with a mock cheque for the  value of FREE GROCERIES for a year.

Humble pie  Ever the self-appointed  observer of language usage in  our newspaper, I was caught up  the creek the other week questioning the validity of the word  'whinge'.  In the Weekender editorial of  Nov. 25, the writer said, "...how  can those who didn't cast a ballot...whinge and whine about  council injustice."  Well, a photocopy of the  appropriate page of the Concise  Oxford sent me by the paper  gives the definition of 'whinge';  namely, to grumble peevishly; a  whining complaint.  So, belated, I looked it up in  my Websters which also told me  the word came from colloquial  Scottish. Look up any doubtful  word I have always said - but I  didn't this time.  Even the sound of the word  has a bite, a touch of acid. Take  note, citizens of Whingeville,  you'll hear it on occasion from  now on.  gibsons elementary  WB BVD MONDAY-NFL Football  ICE TUESDAY- Sports Pick J&  5   CRIB WEDNESDAY -GumeTime 7:30 pm  8 Bring Your Parlturrl  & THIRSTY THURSDAY - 2 for 1 Prime Rib  g 5 8 pm  8  FRIDAYS - 15t Wings & TJiinf/s  |  SATURDAYS - Hockey Night in Canada  <��  o  *_  $5 SUNDAY - Al Tlie Movies!

From some illustrated booklets by younger pupils setting  forth "My gift to self, family,  school world" these excerpts:  important...! try to do my best.  A gift I give my family is  always try to be helping...I am  trying to be nice to my brother.  A gift I give myself is to help  my Dad, and lend him some  money and do the dishes for my  Mom and make supper for  everybody in my family.  I help my brother build a  Lego - when he lets me. ...to  work quietly when the teacher  Joel Johnstone photo  sends us to work unless it's supposed to be noisy...don't cut  down trees because then you  don't get air for your body.

Twain replied: "Finding a  spider in your paper is  neither good nor bad luck.  The spider was merely  looking over our paper to  see which merchant was  not advertising so that he  could go to that store,  spin his web across the  door, and lead a life of  undisturbed peace ever  afterward."

The couple were married in  St. Edmonds church in North  Vancouver on Dec. 8,1928. She  was 24, while he was 27.  Originally, "We met at a  birthday party," said Walter. "I  saw her across the floor and 1  asked the lady who invited me  to introduce me to the pretty girl  ... well here we are."  The secret to a long-lasting  marriage?  "There's no secret," said  Walter. "We both believed firmly that the marriage vow we  took was serious and we meant  it."  Residents of Sechelt since  the 1960s, both Eileen and Walter now live at Shornecliffe,  Walter moving in only recently:  "1 wanted to be close to her."  Nowadays, "She's on one  floor and I'm on another, but as  long as we're in the same building it's close enough," said Wal-  ter.Congratulations by phone  were received by both of the  couple's two sons in Vancouver  and Australia.

Grandparents Rights  There is a group of people who have  joined together and they are called Canadian  Grandparents Rights Association, BC branch  - people helping people to maintain the  integrity of family relationships.  This group formed in 1986 with approximately 30 people who elected a board of  directors. The board has basically carried the  association towards its goals. There is now a  staff and office where people who need assistance can go.  The purpose of the association is to promote, support an assist grandparents and their  families in maintaining or re-establishing  family ties and family stability where the  family has been disrupted; especially those  ties between grandparents and grandchildren.  The association's main function is to serve  as a point of contact for people who require  assistance in gaining access to grandchildren  in the cases of family separation. They primarily guide people in the initial process to  be allowed to attain legal access.  George Bernard Shaw said "people are  always blaming their circumstances for what  they are. I don't believe in circumstances.  The people who get on in this world are the  people who get up and look for the circumstances that they want, and if they can't find  them, make them."

When we arrived on  Cypress it was clear, crisp and  snow was all around. With a  youthful eagerness, the boys  soon began the 43 minute trek  into the cabin. Upon arrival,  they soon were settled and ready  to begin the adventure.  The boys spent the weekend  learning about nature during the  winter, survival and what to do  if ever lost in the woods. They  learned how to work a compass  and were able to find a 300  metre trail using compass points.  They erected outdoor shelters,  looked for animal tracks and  even cooked a delicious lunch  outside. The highlight was a  night walk in candlelight to the  old Hollybum Lodge where they  were fascinated with the stars all  alight. They learned much about  the constellations.  All in all the boys enjoyed a  marvellous adventure and also  ting with ocean view. Avenge dinner for two, $30. We're now open 7  days a week: Galley 11 am to 10  pm; Pub 11 am to 11 pm.

It is really regrettable that better  planning for the Yuletide decorations couldn't have been managed by the council and chamber  of commerce.  It would be one thing if this  had been a planned decision to  conserve energy and money but  since $10,000 was set aside for  this purpose, it amazes me that  the Christmas season arrives and  no decorations are in sight, at  least as this is written. Perhaps  we'll get a few lights on the tree  on the corner of Wharf and  Cowrie.?  Hospital auxiliary  The St. Mary's Hospital auxiliary which operates the thrift  shop on Cowrie Street would  like to thank everyone who used  the shop throughout the past  year. The thrift shop provides  real services to the community  as a source of very low cost  clothing and small household  items for many people in the  area. And in doing so it raises a  great deal of money which goes  toward more equipment and services at our hospital. Please note  that the thrift shop will close on  Dec. 16 at 3 pm and re-opens on  Jan. 4 at 10 am. Do not drop off  any donations during this period.

Be at the Tyee  Wharf at 4:30 pm as the boats  set sail at 5 pm sharp. The carol  ships are always a beautiful sight  from shore and it must be equally special to be on one of the  boats and watch the bonfires and  house lights flashing along the  shorelines. The ships go down  the east side of the inlet, beginning at 5 pm and return on the  west side. Before docking at 7  pm they will complete a grand  circle in front of the wharf.

It was a joy to see  so many children in the audience  obviously enjoying the Disney  costumes and songs. At one  point, some of the more enthusiastic little ones got up to dance in  the aisles, that's what it's all  about, good, wholesome family  entertainment.

The ballot box is at the  Peninsula Market until Saturday  and then the votes will be tallied.  As previously reported, this is a  first for our community and  gives us the opportunity to  express out appreciation to a  very worthy person.  It's nice to see the Christmas  lights going up, the odd tree sitting in the window and all the  pretty decorated store windows.  This time last year we were in  California and Christmas was  definitely not the same, there's  no place like home for the holidays. Scrooge was an institution  in our house on Christmas Eve.  At S pm the family gathered in  front of the TV and shared, once  more, that most precious of all  Christmas stories.  Reg and Lynn Dickson are  certainly two of the busiest people in our community these days  singing and entertaining everywhere they go. Both hold jobs,  yet they give so much of their  time and effort. Everyone  enjoyed them at the meeting last  Wednesday night, singing and  clapping along with the music.  On request, they sang their own  composition Walking in the  Wind and if you haven't heard it,  do. It's available on their new  cassette with all proceeds to the  Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  later the power valiantly flickered on long enough for us to  learn that the Canucks had won  the game. Then our power went  off for the duration of the storm.  We watched it go off in a series  of huge flareups across the inlet  and down in the village. Writing  in this light is a challenge particularly as I am very late due to a  miserable bout with cold and flu.  Hope everyone similarly afflicted with these wretched winter  viruses makes a quick recovery.  .0**  A8  MM��  a-s*  Tv*i  k,iiM  Open 8 am - IO pm eveiy day!  cup & SAVE  WHIN YOU US!

Helpful Scouts packed dozens of  buckets of fill last week to raise and level  the feeding tank for the Salmon Enhancement Project, which happens to be located at  the PH Lions Community Park. We'd all  like to thank you very much young fellows.  Aquatic centre  The PH Aquatic and Fitness Centre will  hold its annutil Family Christmas Party on  Saturday, Dec. 18 from 1:30 to 4 pm. This is  a very educational get-together with emphasis on drowning prevention and a demonstration on how to be watersmart. There will  be prizes, gifts, candy and food and it will be  all for ftee. So come and enjoy.  Also during that time they will have their  winter program registration. So be ready.  The Elves, together with many other  community groups, will again deliver hampers this Saturday, Dec. 18. Last year due to  bad weather conditions, damage was done to  some of the volunteers vehicles. Quite seriously.  If this happens again this year, the recipients will be phoned as to where they can  pick up their parcels. So, please have your  phone number on your application.  Did you know?  That you could spend New Year's Eve  with Skinny Jimmy, also known as lames  Dougan or the Sunshine Coast Alpine  Yodeler? For those of you who would like a  great New Year's Eve party at a price you  can afford, come to the PH Lions Community Park.  Doors will be open at 8 pm. A beautiful  decorated hall with lots of atmosphere, party  hats, noise makers and the lovely music of  Skinny Jimmy will await you.  There will be a smorgasbord shortly into  the New Year and all that for the very  affordable price of just $15 each. Tickets are  limited and available at 883-2920 and at the  Oaktree Market.  Did you also know?  That the carol ships will be in the Harbour again this Dec. 23, leaving Garden Bay  around 6:30 pm. For further info contact  Wilma Thompson at 883-2445.  That when your group plans to have a  special occasion, you should let us know.  And well ahead.  That only through this effort, or something similar, we can get things organized in  this great Harbour.

Kyla McDonald  photo  �����r  aSa*   -     '���'%  halfmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Received a call from a very  distressed and frightened young  mother this week who had narrowly escaped death in her  small car. While driving her  child to preschool, a huge shiny  black trailer truck came round a  comer coming towards her.  The truck was taking up three  quarters of the road leaving the  small car with no alternative but  to swerve off the road to avoid a  collision. She felt fortunate that  there was not a steep dropoff sit  that point on the road.  She was really shaken by this  close call and wondered, like  most of us do, why such big  vehicles should be driving on a  road like Redrooffs, and in particular, why they should drive at  such speeds. She was unable to  get the license number, but it  should not be hard to identify  this particular vehicle.  There is yet another young  family in the Welcome Woods  area who are in distress right  now. Their family pet dog has  gone missing from their yard  under somewhat mysterious circumstances. It looked as though  someone had cut the rope with  which the dog was tied up, and  the dog hasn't been seen since.  It is described as a little golden retriever cross and is very  much missed by the little boy  who loved his dog. If anyone  should know anything about it  or should happen to see it on the  highway, please call 885-5528.  Thrift shop hours  Please note that the hospital  auxiliary thrift shop in Sechelt  will be closed for the holidays  from 3 pm on Dec. 16 until 10  am on Jan. 4. You are asked not  to leave any items outside during this period as they will just  get ruined and cause a mess for  the volunteer members to clean  up.  Another hospital auxiliary  item.

Take a look and be surprised at the variety available  and feel good when you buy  something knowing that the proceeds all go to the hospital.  The Halfmoon Bay branch  held a very successful bazaar  last week and would like to  thank all who supported the  event. The raffle for the doll  was won by Hazel Berthelet of  Redrooffs.  It is good to hear that Lou  Terrillon is back home following a spell in hospital. Keep up  the good work Lou and get well  soon.  Memorial plaque  The Welcome Beach community association are* still seeking names of those in the area  who had served on active duty  in war time conditions and  whose   names   should   be  inscribed on the memorial  plaque in Welcome Beach hall.  It is badly needing to be brought  up to date, and if you can help  in any way wilh this project,  please give Francis a call at 885-  1960.  Happy lights  It is nice to see the Christmas  lights beginning to appear along  Redrooffs. Makes for a more  cheerful drive on a dark road on  winter nights. Hope you are well  ahead with your Christmas  shopping and are doing most of  it locally. Our local merchants  really do a great job of making  their stores attractive and pleasant.  The only ones I hear complaints about are the gas stations  from one end of the peninsula to  the other who charge higher  prices for gas than either Vancouver or Powell River or Vancouver Island. It would be interesting to know why this should  be so.  Coast branch of lung  association halfway  to Christmas Seal goal  The Sunshine Coast chapter of the British Columbia Lung Association is over half way to their annual fund raising goal.  Halfway through the Christmas Seal campaign, Coast residents  have contributed $8,271, with a goal of $15,565.  Provincially, the BCLA hopes to raise $1.5-million for lung disease research conducted in the province, as well as for health education and information programs on air quality. Donations will also help  the BCLA's new B.C. Asthma Centre.  "It's vital that we reach our goal. Lung disease can affect all of  us,"said BCLA volunteer president John Borthwick, "whether through  personal suffering or higher health care costs."  FRESH,  FRESH,  FRESH!

Everyone who knew him is  shocked and saddened.  Our thoughts turn to those he  left behind: his wife Ella and  children Crystal, Wendy, Brenda, and Rodney: also his sister  Shirley and family.  On Tuesday morning, when  Bill Farrell visited him, Danny  seemed healthy, happy, and  busy cooking his First turkey.  Danny came here as a young  teenager with his stepfather Fred  Schuett just after the Second  World War.  Fred had been in uniform.  Like most men around here,  Danny worked in logging and  fishing. Fred sold a smaller boat  lo buy the Seafarer, which he  fished with Danny as deckhand.  Then Danny bought the  Audrey A and fished cod and  trolled for salmon a few years.  He sold her intending to get a  bigger boat, but could not find a  suitable one. He spent one fish  ing season logging - a sad fate  for a fisherman - before buying  the Silva Bay.  He was well liked, and  known for his many little kindnesses, especially to older people like Bob and Al Fawson and  Albert Hodson. Here's to you,  Danny, and the good old days.  Yule Tidings  Egmont Lions held their  Christmas party at the Backeddy  December 4, with good food  and gifts for everyone. That  night also marked Don Devlin's  birthday, and his and Katie's  anniversary.

Bul one recent title, British  Columbia: A Wild ami Fragile  Beauty, offers more lhan a superficial delight for the eye.

Bul British Columbia: A Wild  and Fragile Beauty, is more than  jusl pretty pictures. From Ihe  opening pages, where the fjords  of Desolation Sound rise out of  shades of misty blue, the ridge of  a glacier bending back towards  stacked mountain ranges in the  distance, the book, at its best,  offers an exploration of what we  mean by "wilderness" and what  we value from it.

Even so, there's obviously a  lot of art involved in Osborne's  presentation of wilderness; here  is a photographer who visualizes  and plans the image before he  snaps the shutter, often to stunning effect.  Interestingly, the book is  about creating our idea of wilderness as much as it about capturing what's out there.  As a fitting counterpart to the  images, Stephen Hume, a Vancouver Sun columnist provides  an introduction which is part  history and geography lesson,  part lyrical description and personal essay.  It is also a plea for preservation of the remaining wilderness  in the province.  "The grand myth of our time,  the one we portray of post-cards  and in our public relations campaigns, is of a culture that loves  its wild forests," writes Hume.  "In reality, we obliterate them  with a ruthless energy."  Admittedly, the book offers a  romantic vision of BC's wild  places, from the hunched black  shapes of cormorants before  surging patterns of blue and  white water to sunlight shining  through a lacey cover of moss in  the forest.  The beauty of many controversial landscapes are depicted:  from the damp ferns, slippery  rocks and rainforest green of the  Carmannah to a drip of tree roots  at Meares Island and ClayoqUot  Sound.  ____R_N_L  TOTAL SHOPPING!  7 DAYS A WEEK  Ml Chevron Products  883-2253  883-9551  g  .....

Madeira Park  88J-9675  There are also a few images  which could be seen as melodramatic: photos of surf and spray  pounding the rocks at San Juan  Point or Graham Island for example.  It's prudent in some cases like  this to keep the thoughts of  essayist Jose Knighton in mind,  who writing about what he calls  "ecc-pom", calls into question  the "cheesecake" images of spectacular landscape framed by  provocative lighting, separated  from their wider context.  "We make pilgrimages to the  objects we have admired on  calendars, on postcards, and in  magazines," writes Knighton.  "Trampling the habitats of other  species as we go."  For the most part however,  Osborne isn't guilty of this kind  of photography.  Yes, there are spectacular  images: the white shoulders of  the Coast Range in sunlight and  shadow and shots of the Monarch  Icefields, but there are also more  delicate touches: the white lillies  blooming in the foreground  beside a waterfall, the details of  lichen of Flat Rock Island and the  beauty of a tangle of dead  branches in the grass.  In several photographs,  Osborne achieves what can only  be described as a spiritual quality: a pink salmon jumping in the  haze of early morning or evening,  its body arched against the pale  light of the Koeye estuary or the  Kootcnay River at dawn, the  movement of water like smoke  over grey stones.  The images of the book as a  whole pack a powerful emotional  message, both deliberately and  otherwise: in stirring an appreciation of wilderness in others, they  also perhaps offer hope of its  survival.  on the arts beat  Ursula Fritsch's paintings are  brilliantly coloured and exhuber-  antly brushed, populated with  strange figures of the imagination occupying everyday gardens, kitchens and landscapes.  The reconstruction of reality by  fantasy is characteristic of this  artist, who works partly in the  tradition of the surrealists, where  conscious planning and manipulation of an image occurs only in  the later stages.  Images are created spontaneously in the confidence that  the artist's previous experience  and the richness of the subconscious mind will generate compelling pictures. For Fritsch this  does work and the strangely  transmuted figures realize a life  and vitality more magical than  realism.

Joel Johnstone photo  Westwind concert a powerful show  by Jane Seyd  With an adjustment of microphones, a  stage laced with Poinsettias and Christmas  glitter hanging from the ceiling, the first  annual "Celebration of Song" concert by the  Westwind School of Music played to a  packed house at the seniors' hall in Sechelt  Sunday afternoon.  Under the guiding hand of music director  Brian Miller, the concert included choral  works by six different choral ensembles,  which ranged from the endearing to the con-  sumately professional.  To start the show, a children's choir, ranging in age from five to seven, showed gusto  and enthusiasm throughout several familiar  Christmas songs: "Jingle Bells", "Rudolf the  Red Nosed Reindeer" and "We Wish You a  Merry Christmas."  Following that, a girls' choir aged eight to  1-tdelivered a slightly softer tone with "Child  of the Universe", while the boys' choir complemented "Reflections of a Boy at Sea" with  gestures of mopping the decks and looking  out for land.  With local performer Sarah Norris absent  due to illness, singer Randall Webb took the  stage for a slight change in direction. Departing from the Christmas theme, with "Misty"  Webb soon filled the hall with the smooth,  rich tones of a sophisticated club act reminiscent of another era.  For "Lullaby of Birdland" his snapping  fingers and casual gestures reflected the  swinging scans of the tune.  Continuing the jazzy tone set by Webb,  the younger performers - both boys and girls  - were obviously in their element with the  showmanship and upbeat tunes of "Riff City"  "Blues, Blues, Blues" and "Inflections."  Next came one of the highlights of the  show, a women's trio of Mary Alice Orr,  Patti Pollack and Carol Stewart who provided  amazing vocal harmonies on the old standby  "White Christmas."  Joining the trio with a strong, beautiful  tone was Jane Metcalfe for a final number.  In the latter part of the concert, a sense of  Chrislmas ritual was set with the beat of the  first song, Freedom is Coming, performed by  the adult chorus, the Westwind Singers.  At the concert's conclusion, all six ensembles gathered for a thoughtful yet heartfelt  version of John Lennon's "So this is Christmas."  The next Westwind School of Music concert is scheduled for June.  Christmas  Trees  Are  Here!

L_  Community support sought  for arts centre '94 film series  It's time again to show your  support for the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council's Spring '94 Film  Series.  In order to run the series it is  important to pre-sell 30 passes.  The passes are still going at the  ridiculously low price of six  films for $30.  By purchasing a pass you  receive one film in the series  free, the cost at the door is $5.50  per film. Even that's a great  price at current rates through  regular theatres.  The series will continue to be  shown on alternate Wednesday  nights at 8 pm at the Arts Centre, beginning in late January or  early February.  At the time of writing the  upcoming list of films had not  yet been firmed up, but the Cinematheque representative is  hoping to send us three of Fel-  leni's masterpieces, and three  top notch Canadian films.  The deadline for buying prepaid passes is December 20. So  send your cheque or money  order to the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council, Box 1565, Sechelt, BC  VON 3A0, or drop in to the Arts  Centre, Wednesday to Saturday,  11 am to 4 pm or Sunday, 1 to 4  pm and pay in person.  Show Piece  Local talent is what you'll see at Show Piece  Gallery in lower Gibsons.  Works by artist and illustrator Greta Guzek are  currently being featured at the gallery, including  several of the artist's new serigraphs.  Art cards with illustrations by Guzek from the  children's book The Ferry Boat Ride are also  available.  In addition to Guzek, Show Piece Gallery is  displaying a variety of pottery by locals Pat Forst,  Mary-Glenn Charles and Lu Wuthrich.  Halfmoon Bay artist, Lenore Tkachuk, will  open her own gallery in Halfmoon Bay next week.

Lehmann, Superintendent of Public Works, Sunshine Coast Regional District  5477 Wharf Road, Box 800, Sechell, BC VON 3A0  HOURS * MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY ftOOAM TO 3:00PM, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY 8:00AM 10 fcOOPM       | 22        Coast News, December 13, 1993  news  Dance society puts best foot forward to impress audiences  from pagt 1  To help launch their society,  the group has spent the last few  months preparing to wow Coast  folks with two shows, Dec. 18-  19 at Raven's Cry Theatre in  Sechelt  The four cornerstones of the  society have choreographed and  prepared 17 local dancers, aged  14-41, for The Celebration of  Dance.  "It will be a good show and a  professional show. A lot of  people will see there are people  on this Coast who can dance,"  declared Lois Smith.  On the Coast since I98S,  Smith started her dance career in  Vancouver, becoming involved  in the first performances at  Theatre Under the Stars.  Soon after she auditioned for  a traveling production of Oklahoma. "They wanted two shorter  dancers and told me, 'if we need  a taller girl we'll send for you,'"  she said of the audition.  Believing she'd been spun an  easy brush off, she was shocked  when three months later the  production sent for her and she  was off to Denver, Col.  A few years later Celia Franca arrived from Britaiin to set up  the Natiomd Ballet of Canada.  Smith's husband David  Adams was a friend of Francas  and "when we heard there was  going to be a ballet company,  interest grew."  Left to right, clockwise: dance society instructor/choreographers Verity Purdy, Nicola Blakey, Lob  Smith and Paul Blakey out front of their Dance Coast Danse students. Joel Johnstone pholo  Franca asked Adams to be  the principal dancer and ballet  master of the company strongly  enough mat she hired Smith  "sight unseen."  By 1955, Smith had risen to  the height of the Canadian ballet  dance ladder when she was  proclaimed Canada's first Prima  Ballerina. The first of many  honours that have been  bestowed upon her, including  being made an Officer of the  Older of Canada in 1980.  In 1967 she was presented  with a Confederation Medal -  the first of three.  She was supposed to receive  two but the Canadian government in its infinite wisdom  mailed her an extra one.  Following her career with the  National ballet, Smith ran a  ballet school in Toronto until  her retirement in 1988.  Urged by a friend to return to  the West Coast, she packed up  and moved west - into Verity  Purdy's dream house.  Purdy, 71, and Smith had  never met before, but in a  strange twist of dancers karma,  their paths crossed in the sale of  the house and the two have since  worked to promote dance on the  coast.  The route to the Sunshine  Coast was a little longer for  Purdy, though she  has ties to the area       ���*������>  dating back to childhood summers on  Paisley Island.  As she described,  "I've had a weird  and wonderful  career."  Her life in dance  started at the Royal           Academy School in  London at the age of 11 but six  years later, with the Second  World War about to begin, she  returned home to Vancouver,  and then beaded to California to  train under Najinska, the sister  of the legendary Najinski.  Purdy denies age its ways as  she still moves with the fluidity  of a dancer in her prime and  carries an edge that still requires  challenge, such as trying to  establish a dance society.  That same pluck carried her  back to England during the war,  in a Canadian military uniform.  Yet, she was no ordinary WAC.  Purdy was lead dancer and  assistant choreographer in the  Canadian Army Show, destined  to follow the troops around war-  torn Europe.  However, after sustaining a  near fatal blow to her head after  It would be  nice to inspire  people a  little bit  -Paul Blakey  falling from a horse, she was  kept from going overseas.  Army rules helped her meet  her husband, Rai Purdy, who  became the commanding officer  of the unit she was  ������     serving in. This  same unit, spurred  on by the creative  energys of Rai and  Verity, now with the  rank of captain,  staged the largest  "tent" shows in  British history.  I.; i.a "It was a huge,  huge show," she  said, using her hands in a billowing motion to elaborate the  enormity.  Following the war, Purdy  performed in New York with the  Radio City Music Hall until an  injury forced her to step down.  She and Rai moved to the Coast  where they became intensely  involved in arts projects.  The upcoming show at  Raven's Cry won't show these  two dancers or the Blakey's  physical skills, rather, their life  skills will emerge in the performances of the dancers.  "It would be nice to inspire  people a little bit," admitted  Paul Blakey.  If the society doesn't take off  like they hope it will, he said,  "At least we've given all the  dancers a taste of what it's like  to work with professionals."  .  Wilson says Liberals  remain in his debt  by Jane Seyd  Never far from the political  limelight, local MLA Gordon  Wilson said this week he's prepared to sue the party he used to  lead in order to get back money it  still owes him to the tune of  $130,000.  Liberal party officials denied  they owe that much to their former leader.  Wilson said the money is  owed to him from a time dating  back to the party's relative  obscurity before the last provincial election.  As leader, said Wilson, he  took a reduced instructional load  at his Capilano College job in  order to make time for politics.  The understanding was the party  would make up the difference in  income, to the tune of $2,000 a  month, he said. "They never did  pay that."  As well, Wilson says expenses like gas, air travel and phone  bills to deal with party business  came out of his own pocket: "I  ended up financing the office of  the leader of the Liberal party  myself."  Records were kept, says Wilson, and each year the debt to  him was registered in the  accounts. So far the party has  been coughing up about $1,300 a  month against the debt. But  there's still a lot outstanding,  says Wilson.  Recently, the issue came to  the fore as Wilson is in the process of dividing up assets with  his estranged wife Liz Wilson,  from whom he separated in the  early part of 1993.  And now that he's split with  the Liberals, says Wilson, it's  pay-back time.  Bul Remi Masi, president of  the provincial Liberals, denied  this week the party owes Wilson  as much as the local MLA is  claiming.  According to party figures,  said Masi, the amount owed is  closer to $9,000.  Although he said he wasn't  familiar with the history of agreements between Wilson and the  party, Masi said the amount  owing was shown in audited  statements at the party's last  annual general meeting.  "I have to go by our accountant's figures and comments," he  said. "I don't know where he got  his numbers."  Although no writ has yet been  filed, Wilson said if the issue  isn't resolved, he'll be taking it to  court  "That's up to him," said Masi.  Meanwhile, Wilson said he  has been busy with his new political entity, the Progressive  Democratic Alliance, now a registered party with a list of 400  interested people.  "It's going so well we're actually having to slow the process  down to make sure it's done  properly," said Wilson.  Asked about his own aspirations to lead the new party, he  commented, "It's no secret that  they've invited me to come forward."  AuUeM^ml^eaU  ���'.   Bucket-fields  Complete line of Animal Feed.
