 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY.  Parliament Buildings.  VICTORIA. B C. V8V 1X4.  ^>a��   , -a  -  before Ch&trrjgs  wheriall througli  ihe house...  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The  stockings were hung by fhe chimney with care, in hopes  that St. Nicholas soon mould be there. The children  were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of  sugarplums danced in their heads. And Mamma in  her kerchief and 1 in my cap had just settled down for a  long winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arose  such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the  matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore  open the hhtttte7s,"'&Jl)irew upJhemeehr-The moon on the breast of the  new-fallen snow gave a luster of midday to objects below, when, what to  my wondering eyes should appear, but a  miniature sleigh; and eight tiny reindeer,  with a little old driver, so lively and quick;  I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his ^  coursers they came. And he whistled and shouted, and called them by jSjEj  name: "Now, DasherlNotv Dancer! Sow Prancer JTj  & Vixen/ On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donder and  Blitzen! To the top of the porch, to the top of the  wall! Now, dash away! Dash away! Dash away  (F  " ���"-* ������-������ ��������� J- ���w- ��� ��� r \i  all" As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, ^  when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, so up to the housetop the  coursers they flew With a sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas, too. And then in  a twinkling, 1 heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I  drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St.  Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his  head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys  he had flung on his back, and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes  how they twinkled! His dimples how merry. His cheeks  were like roses, his nose like a cherry. His droll little  mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard on his  chin was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe held  tight in his teeth, and the smoke, it encircled his head  like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round  belly that shook, when he laughed, like a bowl full ofjelly.He was chubby  and plump, a right jolly old elf, and 1 laughed when I saw him, in spite of  .. myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of  & his head soon gaue me to know / had  nothing to dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight  to his work, And filled all the stockings, then turned with a  jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the  chimney he rose. He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,  and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him  exclaim as he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all, and to  all a good night."  K  Mm  lay  you have a  most enjoyable  holiday season.  Greetings from  all of us.   _   - A.  - ' m *m err Coast News, December 20,1982  A backward glance  As one last glance back at the year that has been, we  would focus on regional director Jim Curney of Area E.  If there has been one resident of the Sunshine Coast  who has been more constantly on the hot seat in the past  year we do not know who it could be.  As chairman of the regional board in the past year  Gurney has been subjected to almost constant attack.  He has been villified and ridiculed, castigated and condemned.  It is worth noting that in the new regional alignment  Gurney has been elected vice-chairman by his fellow  directors and has been appointed to the responsible  position of finance chairman by the new regional board  chairman, Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons.  lt must be apparent that Gurney retains the trust and  confidence of his fellow directors which would seem to  lend credence to our steadfast position that much of the  criticism of the outgoing board under his leadership was  at least ill-informed and certainly ill-considered.  We would also draw to the attention of the people of  the Sunshine Coast the fact that of all the tax monies  collected on the Sunshine Coast the amount attributed  to the regional government is between six per cent and  nine per cent depending on the regional area.  It must be apparent to all but the most determinedly  closed minds that the characterization of the regional  government as a slavering, tax-devouring monster run  by fatheads is and has always been a travesty of truth  and justice. May the new year bring fairer comment and  clearer motives.  Best wishes  In accordance with long-standing custom, the Sunshine Coast News will not be published between  Christmas and the New Year. Our office will be closed  between December 20 and December 30.  We take the year-end opportunity editorially to wish  all and sundry peace and joy during the festive season  and in the coming year. As we lay aside the cares of the  world for a refreshing pause, so do we lay aside the  disagreements and debates which have exercised us over  the year.  More disagreements and debates undoubtedly lie  ahead in what promises to be an interesting and perhaps  difficult new year. In the meantime, the merriest of  Christmasses to one and all and the best possible 1983.  .from tha filaa of the COAST NEWS  itfjB^    MtT^d) _ Xm\ t*S&i).  5 YEARSAGO  Among the stable  beasts, a new animal has  become the guardian of  the crib this year. This Is  Heidi, a big St. Bernard  dog. She looks beautiful,  dignified and placid in  the place she has chosen  for herself in the  Christmas creche among  the many lights of Albert  Weal's pasture.  10 YEARS AQO  The Beachcombers is  now on 42 member stations across Canada,  drawing a fantastic  Canada-wide viewing audience of 2,963,000, giving this Sunday evening  family show a rating second only to Hockey  Night in Canada and  ranking 18th in all  Canadian-American and  foreign National TV programmes.  15YEARS AQO  A petition opposing  the highways department's proposed route  for the Qibsons by-pass  from Langdale to the  region of Seaview  Cemetery, Is being circulated.

VON 1V0 Tel. 886-2622 or 886-7817.  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  by Maryanne West  The telephone rang at  Thanksgiving and a soft, quiet  voice said, "This is Julie, do  you remember me?"  Of course I did. ' I  remembered a long-legged,  elfin child, sparkling brown  eyes and a shy mischievous  smile, who drove the nuns at  the Sechelt Residential School  to distraction, because she was  like quicksilver, here one moment, somewhere else the next,  leaving behind a trail of her  belongings! I    *  I went to a boarding school  when I was ten and, although I  loved every minute (well,  almost) of those seven years, I  remember how much we appreciated being taken out by  friends or relatives on Saturday  afternoons.  So it wasn't long after we  moved here that we approached Father Bernardo at the  Residential School, asking permission to bring some of the  children home for supper on a  Saturday. This was given, and  one of those children was Julie.  That was twenty or so years  ago, making quick calculations. Would I still recognize  her?  When she walked in a few  hours later, a lovely young  woman accompanied by her  husband and baby daughter,  we had no doubts. Here was the  same Julie. We talked about  those days, of course, and the  other girls, and I was reminded  of a wonderful Christmas all  those years ago. Three days  before Christmas, Mother  Superior 'phoned to say she  had three little girls who were  stranded at the school for the  holidays. Would wclike to take  them?  "We'd love to." I said,  "We'll pick them up this afternoon."  Then it dawned on me what  I'd done. Even though we have  never believed in expensive  gifts at Christmas, the dolls,  necessary clothes and other  small things I'd bought for our  three daughters, had drained  the budget, and now I'd just  doubled the size of our family  and there was no way I could  discriminate between the  children.  Friends and neighbours  came to our rescue with donations of toys and clothing, the  5-and-10 cent store marked  down three dolls for us, so that  when the great day arrived,  each of the six had an assortment of brand new and recycled gifts.  The story of the fat old  gentleman who was expected to  come down the chimney on  Christmas Eve, to stuff toys  and goodies into the stockings  left at the foot of the beds, was  a bewildering mystery to these  children. They frankly didn't  believe it, and I found Doris,  the eldest, contemplating the  chimney from the outside and  muttering to herself' 'no way''.  They quite obviously thought  we were all either mad or having them on.  It seemed only minutes after  I'd been coping into the wee  hours of the morning with  making sure that each stocking  had the same ratio of goodies to  toys, that six excited children  crowded onto our bed for the  traditional stocking exploration.  Later in the day, after the  "big" presents had been given  out from under the tree, Doris  confided in me that she now  *�� Wb^lU cSiifsei't'wris  we who wire Santa Claus, but  as we visited with friends and  neighbours over the holidays  and the girls discovered that in  everyone's house there was a  small token for them under the  tree, they came to the realization that Santa Claus is the  spirit of Christmas and can be  found everywhere.  One of the requirements of  the school was that the girls  should attend Mass and  neighbours kindly took them to  the service. This particular  Sunday, I was in the garden and  heard Vi, who would have been  about seven, racing down the  driveway shouting "Mum,  Mum".  The breathless child flung  herself into my arms and pressed a quarter into my hand, saying, "Mum, this is for you".  "But Vi," I said, "Igaveyou  the quarter to put in the collection." "Yes, I know," she  replied, "I put that one in the  plate, but I took this one out for  you." What could I do but hug  them all, especially Doris and  Marlene who felt their younger  sister had disgraced them.  We still hear from Father  Bernardo each Christmas and  he always asks for news of the  children. For many years now  they've all gone their separate  ways and we've lost touch with  them, but this year I can tell  him about Julie and I know  he'll be as thrilled as we were  when the 'phone rang and the  shy voice asked, "Do you  remember me?"  the Bay.

I Slings & Arrows^  George Matthewsf^  Normally I wouldn't have  much good to say about the  Christmas season. I just don't  care for it very much. The prospect of being obliged to make  polite conversation with people  I wouldn't even say hello to  does not excite feelings of  warmth, generosity and good  cheer. The weather stinks, I  hate crowds and I don't like  spending money.  Until now, the only thing the  season had to recommend it is a  good schedule of football  games and the fact that the sun  begins its long journey back to  the northern hemisphere where  it belongs.  The most pleasant way to  celebrate Christmas I've heard  of recently was from a family  that lights a candle on  Christmas Day and dances  around it and sings to celebrate  the return of the sun. That  makes sense.  One Christmas I went skinny  dipping in the pool at the Holiday Inn. That was fun. At least  it was until I found out the hotel  staff had gathered around the  closed circuit TV for a half  hour of amusement.  I was saying that up until  now Christmas has not been my  favourite season. This year, I  had a chance to witness some  things that have altered my normally Scrooge-like approach.  Don't get me wrong; I'm not  likely to crumble into maudlin  sentimentality. I'm not getting  senile or soft-hearted in my old  age, but there is something in-  AW AY IN A MANGER  Away In a manger, No crib lor a bed,  The little lord Jesus UM down Hit tweet head,  The slan In the sky Looked down where He lay,  The little lord |��u��, Asleep on the hay.

I was down taking pictures at  the United Church hall the  other day, where members of  the Elves Club were preparing  food hampers for the needy.  There are a lot of needy folks  around these days. People  donated food, money, gifts and  time to put together more than  300 hampers of food and  presents and the next day they  were to be delivered to families  up and down the Coast who  otherwise would have had a  generally miserable time of it  this year.  One lady calculated that one  of these hampers would be  worth something like $80 to  $100. That's $25,000 to  $30,000 worth of goods that  people on the Sunshine Coast  had donated to help their  neighbours. She also said that it  seems the tougher the times, the  more people were likely to  donate. There was more  Christmas spirit in that hall  than I've seen for several years  and it wasn't hard to see that  there was more good feeling in  the giving than there was likely  to be even in the receiving.  Another incident was shown  on TV, where the patrons of a  Vancouver pub, obviously not  particularly well-off themselves, had chipped in to buy a  Christmas present for some  people who really needed it.  There was more good cheer in  the giving of the generous gift  than these folks ever got from  all the beer they must have consumed over the year.  Then there was the story of  the family of four in Quesnel  who spent their time making  soup for the down-and-outers  in town. The husband and wife,  both unemployed, lived on  $800 a month in welfare. They  get up every morning and make  a big pot of soup and then set  up a food stand on the main  street, in the freezing weather,  where they hand out soup to  folks who would otherwise go  hungry. If there's any left over,  they take it home to feed the  family. A person would have to  be pretty cynical and insensitive  not to admire that kind of  sacrifice.  So, I guess there is something  to this Christmas stuff after all.  I'm not likely to run right out  and buy a big turkey for some  poor family with a kid who  walks with a crutch; but, I hope  Ood blesses all those generous  people who did something kind  for someone this year. They  certainly made my Christmas  special.  In fact, I'm inspired enough  to wish all my colleagues and  friends Season's Greetings. To  Becky, and John and Geoff  and Evo and my mom and dad  and Andrea, Lindsay and  Lesley and all the people I work  with: Best Wishes.  I never send Christmas  cards. Coast News, December 20.1982  Letters to the Editor  A bitterness stirring  Editor:  As 1 look around my country  today, I feel a bitterness stirring. And 1 don't know who to  blame.  1 can't blame the average  working man. All he asks for  his forty hours of labour is  food, shelter and clothing. I  don't know of too many who  get too much more; in fact,  most get less.  I'm told by the F.I.R. that 1  can't blame them. Yes, it's true  they're laying off thousands of  workers without a thought as to  what might happen to them and  they themselves will continue to  grow fat of f the money they say  they don't have, but after all,  pulp isn't selling, and you can't  make what you can't sell.  So I look higher. Can il be  you, Bennett, wilh those lying  eyes and thai cheating smile?  Are you responsible for the  hungry looks of our province's  children and the woman who,  in desperation, left her  newborn baby in the Vancouver streets to die? Can you  even begin to tell me why we  ���have the highest suicide rate in  recorded history? No?  So what about you,  Trudeau? In your arrogance  you finger the poor while you  lick the hands of the rich. Are  the people's lives really so  meaningless to you, can you tell  me you honestly care?  I see people of my town  growing thin with hunger and  hear about the unjust fines  levied against them for  shooting a deer out of season. I  see small chidren asking Santa  Claus for a job. I see decent  men shoplifting groceries.  Now I understand why the  Bolsheviks shot the Czar.  Leslie Ellison,  Gibsons  Let bells  ring out  Boy Scouts grateful  Editor:  The Boy Scouts movement  owes much to individuals,  business firms and organizations who have co-operated  and aided in making 1982 a year  of progress. The Sunshine  Coast District continues to  grow and the Council administers eight community  groups, from Gibsons to  Pender Harbour. Contributions of time and substance by  many volunteers account for a  healthy expansion.  The uniformed leaders are,  of course, the first to be deserving of recognition and praise.  Gratefulness is also extended to  members of the B.P. Guild,  and to members of our sister  organization, the Girl Guide  movement, for their cooperation.  Thanks are due to The Press,  The Coast News, Channel 10  Cablevision, for space and time  in these medias. The Howe  lust arrived!

The  Sechelt School District has continuously supplied accommodation for meetings of both  youth and adults.  The District Council is most  grateful for the many hours  which group committee  members have donated to the  cause. The organizations which  sponsor the individual groups  of scouting deserve the thanks  of the council and the appreciation of the boys and parents involved:  Gibsons Kiwanis Club  St. Aidan's Church  Roberts Creek Legion  Wilson Creek Community  Centre Association  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  West Sechelt School  Parent/Teachers  Association  Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Association  Pender Harbour Lions Club  It is this type of community  interest, all over the world,  which has made Scouting the  largest youth organization with  over 17,000,000 members in  150 countries.  Scouting is a grand example  of the volunteer movement at  work.  Thankfully yours,  Edw. J. Dinsley,  President District Council  Editor:  Let the bells of Christmas  ring out their joyful song -Jesus  the Christ is born - is brought  forth among men to tell them of  God's ever-presence, all-power  and all-goodness.  The child Jesus was loved  and nurtured by his mother,  who had "conceived him by the  Holy Ghost", as the Gospel  tells us, and was protected and  guarded by Joseph, who took  the mother and child into  hiding until those who wanted  to kill him were dead.  As we prepare for, and anticipate, the celebration of  Christmas, we need to lift our  thought to the real meaning of  Christmas. As we do, we will  find it is possible today for the  Christ that Jesus so fully lived  to come to each one of us in  consciousness, where we need  to love and nurture it, guard  and protect it.  In a Christmas message for  1900, Mary Baker Eddy, the  founder of Christian Science,  said: "Today the Christ is,  more than ever before, 'the  way, the truth and the life'  -'which lighteth every man that  cometh into the world', healing  all sorrow, sickness, and sin."  And she adds: "At this immortal hour, all human hate, pride,  greed, lust, should bow and  declare Christ's power, and the  reign of Truth and Life divine1  should make man's being pure  ��nri hlest."  Jesus said (John 13:34): "A  new commandment I give unto  you, That ye love one another;  as I have loved you, that ye also  love one another." The world  is urgently in need of this love  for one another, and we must  find ways to express it intelligently in order to find solutions to world problems. These  problems can only be solved  with a better understanding of  brotherly love.  Let us now, at this season of  happy remembrance,  rededicate ourselves,, to living.  by that "true Light, which  lighteth every, man that cometh  into the world" (John 1:9).  Then, truly, will the bells of joy  ring out loud and clear.  Jeanie H. Ryley  Chamber appreciates  Editor:  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce would  like to express its thanks to  B.C. Tel and in particular to  Stan Stubbs for their assistance  with the Christmas lights at the  Mall area. Without their help,  it would have been very difficult to have put these in working order.  We would also like to express  seasons greetings to our  members, and indeed to all who  live on the peninsula. May  peace and prosperity go with  you all in 1983.  Yours truly,  Anthony D.

Seeing all those earnest faces so enthusiastically belting out the  traditional carols would have  to convince even the most hardbitten Scrooge that Christmas  still has meaning and magic.  That was the message of the  Roberts Creek Elementary  Christmas Concert held in the  spacious new joint facility last  Wednesday. The intermediate  grades gave an eloquent explanation of the meaning with  the symbolic Christmas tree  and the primary grades  demonstrated the magic with  "Christmas in Outer Space".  There was everything for a  space fantasy: from Santa in a  rocketship (but still with a trusty reindeer to lead the way and  give some prompting on lines),  big yellow Pac-men on skinny  little legs, and robots of all  descriptions, to dramatically  made-up punk rockers,  balloon people, and, of course,  a cameo appearance by E.T.  All this with special effects such  as giant bubbles, a backdrop of  swirling colours, and music,  fittingly enough, from "2001:  ASpaceOdessey".  All went amazingly  smoothly���for a Christmas  concert anyway. After all the  adlibs are the most fun. What  would it have been without the  eager little girl in the primary  choir waving to her parents between songs or the little  kindergartener's looks of consternation when one of her red  balloons fell off in the middle  of a vigorous twirl? And the  biggest hand of the night went  to the baby sister who couldn't  resist an empty stage and unused spotlight!  My cheeks hurt from smiling  by the end of the performance.  It was good entertainment and  fun to see all the kids dressed up  and so pleased to be there.  Their excitement make's you  realize that Christmas is not  just something to get over with. ���  BURSARY MEMORIAL:  ^���^M*ftiSeH*o-S the .tomni unity2|  -will be pleased to know that iA  bursary has been established in'  memory of Ron McSavaney.'  Each year a student of  Elphinstone Senior Secondary  School will receive $500 for  academic studies. The bursary  will be paid by the Elphinstone  Recreation Group but it is emphasized that the memorial is'  on behalf of all the community  in recognition of the important  part Ron played in the community until his death last  month.  Ron played a vital part in the  development of Roberts Creek  as a nice place to live. He was a  charter member of the community association and one of  the founding members of the  Elphinstone Recreation Group  over 20 years ago.  The Elphinstone Recreation  Group runs the Tuesday night  bingo at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall and has been  responsible for the continued  operation of the hall and the  purchase of the land for the  post office and library as well as  donations totalling around  $10,000 per year to community  groups and functions of all  kinds.  Ron worked hard for many  years on the bingo and other  community projects such as the  new joint facility. He was not as  active the last couple of years  after he became very sick. But  those who know what he had  accomplished in service to the  community will remember him  and the bursary in his name will  give his achievements the  recognition they deserve.  CRIB NEXT YEAR:  Ray Del.ong was first, Art  Hauka second and Mike  Cawthra won the booby prize  at last week's crib night at the  Roberts Creek Legion. That's  il for the crib this year. Thursday night crib and bridge will  start again January 6.  CLOSED CHRISTMAS:  The Roberts Creek Legion  will be closed Christmas Eve,  Christmas Day and New Year's  Day. It will be open New Year's  Eve from 4 p.m. until 3 a.m.  In keeping with the present  state of the economy and  everybody's pocketbooks,  there's no charge for New  Year's Eve at the legion this  year. Food will be served and  dancing will be to tapes. If you  have some good dance cassettes  please bring them along.  CHRISTMAS SERVICES:  St. Aidan's will be joining St.  Bartholomew's Anglican  Church in Gibsons for the  Christmas Eve service at 11:30  p.m., Friday. A carol service  will be held at St. Aidan's on  Boxing Day at 11 a.m. There is  no Christmas Day service at St.  Aidan's  Sechelt  grant  denied  The Village of Sechelt's application for a Canada Com-.  munity Development Program  grant of $112,000 Iras Teen *  turned down by the federal  agency. Notification of the  grant refusal was received by  the village office Monday,  December 13th.  The grant, which was  originally sought by Sechelt  developer Henry Hall, was to  be used for building boat launching facilities in Trail Bay.  When Sechelt council refused  to support an application for a  foreshore lease, which Hall  needed to proceed with his project, Mr. Hall gave the village  his grant application.  It was this application that  was denied Monday. Reasons  for denying the grant are  reported to be based on the fact  that other applications had  higher priority.  Grant disbursals for the B.C.  mainland coastal area total  $183,000. The Sunshine Coast  has received $16,600. This  represents one grant given to a  group to do work in Brookman  Park.

The first application had  been turned down and people  Happiness at Welcome Beach  by Kulh Forrester, 885-2418  HAPPlNKSSlsM  Happiness is a night at the  Welcome Beach Hall when the  children of Halfmoon Bay  School present their Christmas  concert. On Thursday night  there was standing room only  for parents and friends and the  air was electric with the excitement and anticipation of the  children taking part. The even  smaller ones in the audience  could hardly contain  themselves because they knew  that somewhere along the evening they might even get to see  Santa Claus. The "dress-  ingroom" was a hive of activity  with little ones donning  cosutmes and makeup for their  big moment on slage. There  were elves and fairies, reindeer  with red noses, Snow White  was there, so was Frosty the  Snowman and there were even  a couple of wee mice. David  Short, head teacher at the  school, managed to get enough  silence to extend a warm  welcome to all and to make  ment ion of some special guests,  among whom was one man  who delighted the children by  just being there. He was George  Blackstock who drives the  school bus and from the  welcome he received he must be  a very popular fellow with the  kids. The programme was  opened by a welcome from  some of the wee kindergarten  ones who were then joined by  grade one for '"Twas the Night  before Christmas". The grade  one children then showed their  versatility with a rendition in  French of a French carol���very  nicely done. Grades two and  three combined with a  beautifully costumed and well-  staged version of "Frosty the  Snowman" playing "Jingle  Bells" on recorders, and the  grande finale was "Snow  White and the Seven Elves".  The children then joined  the audience in somecarol singing while they awaited the arrival of the great man himself���Santa Claus���who arrived a wee bit late because one of  his reindeer had broken down  a*  on the way and he had to get a  ride to the hall. But arrive he  did, and what a welcome he  got! He had a bag loaded with  parcels���one for every child in  the hall as well as a few for the  teachers. After Santa left there  were delicious refreshments  and goodies for everyone.  Much credit for this happy  evening must be given to the  teaching staff; David Short,  Quentin Docherty, Lorene  Taylor and aide Katherine Kelly who must have put in many  hours preparing the children  for their parts, and who made a  fantastic job of the beautiful  stage settings too. The parents  too are due praise for costume  making and for providing all  the delicious food. But a very  special mention and presentation were made to the lady who  had practised with and who  played piano throughout the  whole show���Elsie Julian.  There was another delightful  eveing in the hall last Saturday  when the Welcome Beach  Community Association held  its Annual Christmas Dinner  and Dance. Once again the hall  was packed to capacity as some  80 people sat down for a  delicious turkey dinner. The  after-dinner entertainment was  provided by a group from the  Halfmoon Bay Variety Show  under the leadership of Nicky  Weber, which sang a selection  of Christmas songs and was  then joined by everyone in  carol singing. The group for  this particular evening comprised Connie Wilson on piano  with vocals by John Hamilton,  Nicky, Dave Wilson, Dierdre  Hartwell, Pat Murphy, Floyd  Carmen and Ruth Forrester. A  most enjoyable evening of dancing followed. The next affair  at the hall will be the Christmas  Eve Carol Service to which  everyone is welcome, then the  New Years party which will  start at 9 p.m. Members are invited to bring their guests and  join in for an evening of fun.  Watch our for the fire truck on  Monday (December 20) evening when it will have a load of  local children singing carols  along Redrooffs Road some  time around 7 p.m.  Would like to take advantage  of being a columnist for this  paper.

The tides and winds were  really high this week, but after  seeing the news I think we got  off easily. Even though the  road around the Lagoon to  Taylor's Store was blocked off,  it was better than being badly  flooded inside our homes.  When I walked out of the store  I ran into a fellow who said he'd  heard Taylor's had two feet of  water in the store! I'll tell you  ���it takes the Harbour to get a  good rumour going. Last I  heard, Richard Paton was my  brother (no); I'd been married  before (no); and I owned a  house in Gibsons too (how  delightful, but no!).  How's this for stability?

CHILDREN'S CONCERT:  I wasn't able to attend the  Madeira Park Elementary  School's Christmas concert  this year, but I understand  from those I have spoken to  who did attend, that it was the  best ever. The theme this year  was Christmas around the  world, with the various classes  portraying Christmas in different countries.

An annual project for the  Elves Club, the Christmas  hampers were filled with food  and gifts donated by people in  the community.  Names of needy families  come from requests from those  in need and from Human  Resources. Thirty to forty  volunteers collected the food,  which includes turkey, ham,  vegetables, cake and gifts,  estimated to be worth $80 to  $100 in each of the more than  300 hampers.  Last year, the Elves Club  delivered 167 hampers. Current economic conditions on  the Coast presumably account  for the nearly doubling in the  number of hampers.  Spokesman Bev Young told  the Coasl News that while the  number of hampers is much  greater this year, the community has pitched in to a much  greater extent than usual, and  donations of food, money and  gifts have been generous  enough to fill the requests.  Gwen    in    Gibsons  Consumers' Association?  by Gwen Robertson 886-3780  In difficult times, such as we  are presently experiencing,  with so many out of work, and  businesses failing, people And  it necessary to eliminate the  frills and be very careful about  how they spend their dollars.  Shopkeepers tell me that they  must Jay off people and the  salespersons must- wprk twice  as hard. Customers are shopping much more carefully and  junk food, which brought good  revenue to the shop, is being cut  way back.  Does it not seem an appropriate time for a branch of  the Consumers Association of  Canada to be established on the  Sunshine Coast? Jesse Burger-  jon, a part-time resident of the  Coast has made a beginning. A  CAC information centre is being set up at the Community  Services Association office in  Sechelt. Jesse is also looking  for a place or places in Gibsons  where information may be  disseminated - perhaps in the  library and/or in the health  centre. As soon as it has been  established, I will let you know.  In the meantime, those who  wish to become members of the  Consumers Association of  Canada may call me and I will  establish a list. It is my  understanding that we will be  attached to the Vancouver  branch of the CAC whose address is:  Consumers Association of  Canada, Room 103 -163 West  Hastings Street, Vancouver,  B.C.

Last spring, I was able to get  into the middle of a nuclear fuel  rod manufacturing plant in  New Brunswick, very easily,  thank you.  And several years ago, when  I was a fulltime activist, I was  offered, through an intermediary, an ounce of  plutonium stolen from a U.S.  nuclear facility, the idea being  to use the stuff to publicise the  vulnerability of such installations to terrorism or theft.  I turned down the  plutonium, but made sure the  federal government was aware  that the offer had been made.  Shortly thereafter - this was in  1976 - the locks were changed  across Canada at nuclear  power stations.  But that didn't stop some  people in Toronto from paddling by canoe to the edge of an  Ontario Hydro nuclear plant,  then wandering inside, unopposed.  I note in reports from the  U.S. that security experts sent  cessful completion of phase of  goal.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  This could be a disappointing week especially as it catches you unawares.

Recently, I happened to be  driving past the Rocky Flats  Nuclear Weapons Plant, and  had a bit of the story behind  that facility explained to me,  admittedly by one of the people  who have been trying for years  to close the place down.  Biased, perhaps. But I had  listened to the hogwash uttered  by the manager of the fuel rod  manufacturing plant in New  Brunswick a couple of months  before, so I Figured my "objectivity" wouldn't be strained.  Rocky Flats is the place  where they build all the triggers  for all the atomic weapons built  by the United States. For the  record, the Americans are  reportedly adding three nuclear  weapons a day to their  stockpiles.  According to my guide,  Mark Neski, Rocky Flats has  the highest plutonium emissions in the world. The cancer  rate in the immediate vicinity is  20 per cent higher than  anywhere else.  "The only way they can get  any workers to go there is to  pay $16 an hour even for  washing the floors. Merchants  are upset because they can't get  a shopping mall built. The  damn old plutonium is ruining  business," Neski said.  "The housing development  near here is built on land that  has 44 times the amount of  plutonium contamination that  state laws actually allow.  "But the state can't do  anything about it because state  laws don't apply to federal  facilities."  Anybody who might think  this is an exaggeration - what  democratic government would  do a thing like that to its own  people? - has not been following the progress of the trial in  Salt Lake City, where 24 radiation victims are suing the U.S.  for $48 million in damages.  These are victims of cancer,  birth defects, miscarriages and  genetic diseases who lived hi the  path of fallout from above-  ground nuclear blasts conducted by the U.S. Atomic  Energy Commission during the  1950'sandl960's.  If they win, another 1,200  such claims will immediately be  launched.  It turns out, according to  evidence submitted at the trial,  that the Army Corps of  Engineers hadn't completed  safety studies on radioactive  fallout by 1951, when atomic  tests were moved from the far  Pacific to Nevada.  One witness described the arrival of Atomic Energy Commission scientists who later  came to test the water and milk  for radiation in a downwind  Nevada town.  They ate only the rations  they brought with them, but  never warned anybody about  eating local produce. Many of  the residents later died of  Hodgkin's disease or leukemia.  What can you say?

Review below. _Ft��� ,*,��� ,,���,,,  Tartuffe  A most difficult play  by John Burnside  One must applaud the  courage and imagination of  Suncoast Players for bringing  us Moliere's Tartuffe - two performances this week at the  Sechelt Elementary School  Gymnasium, Tuesday and  Wednesday at 8:00 p.m.  Principally, the credit must  go to Gordon Wilson, president of the club and director of  this production. Wilson has obviously understood that an  amateur company has an opportunity, and perhaps an  obligation, to measure itself  continually against the  challenging heights of the  theatre and we are indebted to  him for bringing us an oppor-  ' Amity to familiarize ourselves  with ihe work of the greatest  French dramatist.  It is a continuing truth,  however, that the path of aspiring excellence is strewn with  , constant pitfalls and unfortunately this brave and attractive production finds a few  along the way.  The programme notes tell us  that Tartuffe was the first of  Moliere's work, produced  under the patronage of the Sun  King, Louis XIV of France, in  the second half of the 17th Century. It is a satiric comedy of  manners and style, which lampoons the religious hypocrisy  prevalent at the time and never  completely out of style.  In brief, the play deals with a  tyrannical father, Orgon, who  befriends and is taken in by the  scheming hypocrite, Tartuffe.  At one point, Tartuffe is engaged to Orgon's daughter,  lecherously pursuing his wife,  heir to all his property and all  the while keeping Orgon persuaded that he, Tartuffe, is  nothing less than a saint.  Period comedies, such as  Tartuffe, are deceptively difficult to do well. They absolutely demand a great deal of pace  and polish and a high sense of  style and, unfortunately, with a  two notable and honourable  exceptions, the demands and  possibilities of the play were  not quite realized by Wilson, in  his first major directing foray,  and his largely inexperienced  cast.  The two exceptions are actresses Judith Wilson and Mary  Baecke as Elmire and Dorine,  Orgon's wife and maid respectively. Both Wilson and Baecke  played with the requisite level  of intelligence, style and  energy, and were a constant  delight while they were on  stage.

The two male leads, John  Johnston as Orgon and Alan  Karmazyn as Tartuffe, performed with valiant energy, but  perhaps the sense of pace and  style required was not quite so  firmly within their grasp. For  this reviewer, at least, it seemed  that had the roles been reversed  the actors might have been  more comfortable. Throughout the performance, I was  haunted with the possibility of  Karmazyn of the big rich voice  and physical stature as the self-  satisfied burgher and the slimmer, silver-voiced Johnston as  the scheming hypocrite - Karmazyn as Othello and Johnston  as Iago, as it were.  Apart from the questionable  casting, the major difficulty in  the performance on Thursday  night was the vexatious question of pacing. Apart from  Wilson and Baecke, no one in  the cast, with the possible exception of Johnston, felt the  urgency of pace that Tartuffe  demands. What tends to happen in such a case with inexperienced actors is that they  cover the gaps in the action wit h  mugging and self-centred flamboyance rather than ensemble  playing.  Particularly susceptible in  the performance under review  were Karmazyn and Chris Car-  row as Orgon's son Damis.  Both actors have much experience as performers, as opposed to actors and, when  things got slow, showed a  tendency to revert to performing rather than acting. It must  be said that there was evidence  of intelligence and ability in  both performances, but it was  not marshalled and focussed  quite as much as one would  have liked.  For the rest: David Karmazyn might have made more  of his delightful cameo as the  bailiff; Rod Crawford as  Cleante was a delight to the eye,  but hearing him was disappointingly difficult; Sandie Decker  performed with energy, but  might have been more comfortable, and left the audience  more comfortable, if she had  managed a somewhat more  relaxed manifestation of that  energy. First-timers Annabel  Johnston, Richard Burns, and  Michael Baecke, were perhaps  in over their heads, but with  this experience in a difficult  play under their belts, will fine*  their next assignments easier  going.  The set by Joe Harrison and  the costuming were attractive  and effective. The disappointingly slim audiences on the two  opening nights should be a  salutary first-hand lesson to  Suncoast Players that the  crowded Christmas season is  not a good time to schedule performances. Nonetheless, they  are to be commended for their  courage and energy and thanked for the opportunity to meet  Moliere.  By weighted vote, members  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board would not approve the  district's 1983 provisional  budget until the board agreed  to first deal with a motion put  forward by Sechelt mayor Bud  Koch. After dealing with  Koch's motion, the board passed the provisional budget. The  only negative votes cast were by  Sechelt mayor Bud Koch and  Area B representative Pat Murphy.  Koch's motion contained  four items: I. All SCRD  staff return to a five day work  week. 2. All salaries be frozen  at early 1982 levels. 3. The hiring of a thrid planner be put on  hold until the new service committee can establish priorities.  4. TheapproximatelySIOO.OOO  now in general revenue earmarked for building acquisition be used now to lower our  tax requisition for 1983. Item  three was immediately ruled  out of order as the board approved the hiring of a third  planner at their last meeting.  Before the items in the motion could be put to a vote, an  in-camera meeting was held  ostensibly because the motion  dealt with staff matters. It was  apparent, however, that a good  deal of heated discussion and  trade-offs would be necessary  with the motion if the provisional budget was to pass.  After a lengthy in-camera  meeting, the board returned to  the table to deal with the motion. The first item calling for  Park aid  forthcoming  It appears some progress has  been made this past week with  regards to obtaining help to  prevent Chapman Creek from  doing any further damage to  Brookman Park.  At last Thursday's regular  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, Area C  director Jon McRae reported  that the area has been inspected  by Trevor Lewis from the  Department of Environment  and in liaison with federal  fisheries officer Randy Tancock and Jamie Stephen, conservation officer. It has-been  recommended that an official  application from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District be submitted requesting that work be  allowed oh the creek. An application would then lead to a  joint meeting of the departments of environment and  fisheries.  the SCRD staff to return to a  five day work week was passed  by weighted vote. Opposing the  motion were chairman Lorraine Goddard, Area F director  John Shaske, Area D director  Brett McGillivray and Area E  representative Jim Gurney.  Items two and four of the motion were defeated.  in that in-camera meeting,  the board agreed to unfreeze  staff merit raise increases for  1982 and 1983. The outside  staff workers would also be  eligible for step increases. This  became effective when the  board voted down item two of  Koch's motion.  In order to carry out item one  of the motion, it will be  necessary to pass a by-law. The  secretary-treasurer was instructed to draw up such by-law  for presentation to the board.

This course would apply to  anyone working with groups of  people. Topics include examining individual behaviours,  group behaviour (with role  playing), changing behaviour,  assessing organizational effectiveness, and communication  skills.  The course involves a lot of  participation as well as some  written projects and exams.  Students may attend on an  audit basis and not be  evaluated if that is their choice.  The course is held Tuesdays, at  the Centre from 7:00 to 10:00  p.m. The instructor is Kay Little; the fee is $46. SO.  !

Friends and neighbours  and passersby are all most  welcome.  The 6:30 service will be the  most suitable for small  children, but families are advised that they are welcome at  whichever service matches their  busy time schedules. No collections are taken at these services.  On a recent morning the sunshine was reflected by the smiling faces of thirty-nine  members of the Roberts Creek  Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital, when they met at the  Creek Restaurant to enjoy a  delightful lunch and to install  the officers for the coming  year.  The Auxiliary prayer was  given by Dorothy Bruce and  Pauline Lamb, president of the  Co-ordinating Council and one  of our own past presidents, installed the following  officers:��� President Peggy  Gallo; Vice-President Dorothy  Bruce; Treasurer Jay Town-  send; Secretary Lillian Shields;  Membership Jean Frewin; and  Publicity Madeline Grose.  Pauline also gave Beverley  Northway her Past President's  pin. In her annual report,  Beverley said how much she  had enjoyed her term of office  and was particularly gratified  to see a number of new  members.  Anna Pike has taken over the  responsibility for Volunteer  Chairman, but it was interesting to be told by Mildred  Forbes that during the past year  volunteers had worked 1,265  Harmony  Hall   by Gladys Coates  Our annual Christmas dinner, catered by Klaus Catering,  was well attended and enjoyed.

The Thursday evening bingo  has been very well attended,  and we will carry on through  the holidays. Social bingo has  been cancelled for December  and will commence again  January 10,1983.  "Fun nights" also will be  off for awhile, starting up  again on January 7th, 1983.  For pot luck in January, we are  planning a Rabbie Burns night.  The annual New Year's Eve  party plans are well under way,  with Anne Fitchett in charge of  ticket sales. Ernie Fossett is  dance convenor, and Bill  Malyea will provide the music.  There will be a bar available to  purchase liquid refreshments.  The tickets are $5.00 per person  and going fast.  We are happy to have Eva  Oliver back with us after an eye  operation, and hope for her  continued recovery. For all  who are sick, our sympathy,  and for the well, please stay  that way!

Regional Board last Thursday  j at the board's regular meeting.  In that report Wagner requested that Ihe board adopt as  a proposed budgel for the  Commission's second year of  operation,   a   figure   of  $85,970.00, which is just under  the figure budgeted for this  pasl year. He also requested  that Mr. Russell Crum be approved as a member at large  and the present members be  reaffirmed forthe coming year.  The board approved all three  requests.  In his report, Wagner noted  that as of December 6th, the  Economic Development Commission has been consulted on a  total of over 70 business proposals, mostly new ventures  lhat could result in almost 100  new jobs and over $7.5 million  new investment.  Firm seeks Porpoise  Bay wharf lease  A proposal from Sunshine  Coast Recreation Consultants,  a Vancouver based firm, to  develop a recreation service  business based at the Porpoise  Bay public wharf, was  presented to Sechelt council  Wednesday.  The proposal includes rentals of recreational equipment,  small sailboats, canoes, windsurfers, dingies, waterski boots  and fishing tackle. The Firm  further plans to offer tourist  packages and custom programmes for overnight and extended  camping trips in the Sechelt Inlet area.  The proposal asks the  Sechelt council to lease the  government wharf, currently  leased to the village, to the company under the following conditions:  "In return for the opportunity to lease the wharf for a  nominal annual fee, the company agrees to use the facility as  the primary base of operations  for all rentals, packages, and  some custom programmes. In  addition, the company would  offer year-round bait and  marine gasoline sales, and, on  behalf of the council, assume  responsibility for caretaking  and rent collection."  Council will study the proposal.  Tourism committee  struck by Vedo  The recent series of small  business meetings on the coast  has resulted in a quick response  from the Economic Development Commission. A Tourism  Development Committee has  been struck and charged with  establishing a community-wide  body the task of which will be  to maximise tourism and the  benefits therefrom.  "We received a clear call  from operators of tourism-  oriented businesses to get  something going," said  Economic Commissioner Oddvin Vedo. "They want an  organization which, for the  first time, represents the whole  coast and combines all their  strengths to generate business  effectively."  Chairing the committee is  Middlepoint resident Richard  Tomkies, Creative Director of  JEM Productions Ltd.���one  of western Canada's leading  communications and Film production companies. With him  are Barry Wilbee of Lowes  Marina, Madeira Park; Bill  Edney of Ken's Lucky Dollar in  Gibsons; and Economic  Development Commissioner  Vedo. Wilbee and Edney are  both members of the Economic  Development Commission;  Edney is also an alderman in  Gibsons. The committee held  its first meeting last Thursday,  December 16.  The mandate of the committee is to investigate options  open to the community for the  kind of organization required,  make final recommendations  then launch it on its way. A  target date of late March has  been set.  "We're looking at either a  Tourism Association or a Community Development Corporation," said Richard Tomkies.  "There are lots of associations  around���they tend to limit  their activities to promotion.  Development corporations, on  the other hand, are a relatively  new animal and very interesting. They have access to  potentially massive funding  and can provide a range of services far beyond promotion���none of which are  available at ihe moment."  The committee intends to expand its number to eight in the  New Year. It plans to hold a  series of public hearings to  gather input from interested  parties���particularly local  government bodies and  chambers of commerce. Its  final product will be presented  at an inaugural meeting of the  proposed organization, and  will consist of its name, its constitution and objectives and a  slate of nominees for election  there and then to the board of  directors.  "We're looking at 15 million  visitors in the lower mainland  for Expo '86," said Oddvin  Vedo. "We want this thing off  and running strong before then  to maximize our share of the  business. A lot of operators���from hotels to gas stations���could clear their mortgages that year if we do it  right."

VON ISO  HMHI Coast News, December 20,1982  Mission Point near Davis Bay was one of several locations battered by high winds and tide last week.  This was the siluation last Thursday morning. -j... i.,��ut ...i.  Tides and wind cause havoc  Owning or renting waterfront property seemed to many  Sunshine Coast residents  something of a questionable  blessing as two fierce storms  with high tides brought waves  and driftwood closer than was  either customary of comfortable.  On Mission Point on Thurs  day morning, one couple  waited through the high tide as  a huge log which had lain half-  buried in the sand for more  than ten years rolled with the  waves in jarring contact with  their house; in Gibsons one  shorefront dweller had the tide  seep into his cabin and for a  while couldn't open his door to  There's no better  time lo say "Thank you"  for your pail patronage!

While no area of the Sunshine Coast escaped the battering or was without its tales of  trouble, the low-lying Mission  Point area was perhaps the  worst affected. Besides the high  waves breaking over the low  shore, water filled in through  the old slough from what used  to be Jackson's Booming  Grounds and, at one point on..  Thursday morning, Mission  Road was under three-and-a-  half feet of water.  By the weekend, MP Ray  Skelly and MLA Don  Lockstead had managed to arrange to have a joint agreement, signed a year ago between the federal and provincial  governments, put into effect.  Under the agreement, the provincial government would provide accommodation through  the Provincial Emergency Programme, for people put out of  their homes under circumstances such as those encountered this past week. The  federal government agreed to  reimburse PEP for the costs incurred.  Working for  community  by Susan Thompson  Co-ordinator  Meals on Wheels  As the hustle and bustle of  the holiday season builds - as  we hurry from bazaar to bake  sale and buy yet another raffle  ticket, we can easily forget  what happens when it is all over  - when the tables are dismantled and put away. The Meals on  Wheels committee has had  cause of late to consider these  events and the people who  work so hard to make them a  success, as well as the' 'why'' of  it all. They work in the community to help create a better  community.  When Meals on Wheels expanded to Sechelt, the service  clubs in the area were approached for financial support. We would now like to  thank them publicly, through  your paper, for their support  was most generous. Thank you  and best wishes to: ���  The Sechelt Legion and its  Ladies Auxiliary; the Roberts  Creek Legion; the Sunshine  Coast Lions Club; the Kinsmen  Club of Gibsons and District;  the Elphinstone Chapter of the  Eastern Star.  The Meals on Wheels committee is grateful to these  dedicated members of the community. We would also like to  extend hearty thanks to those  private donors and Klaus and  Hughie of Klaus Catering for  bearing with us so far.  We on the Sunshine Coast  can be very proud of our local  members.

December 20,1982  Rambling* of a  Hover  He's sticking to his story  by Dec Cee  There were several versions  presented as to what actually  happened in the airmen's mess  tent that late afternoon. Even  now, although almost 40 years  have elapsed, I am not too sure  of how it all cameabout. That it  was inevitable, there was no  doubt, but I am not about to  revise the story 1 gave at the  time and it went something like  this.  The day started ordinarily  enough. It so happened that it  was one of (he d.:ys when I had  lo make the trip to Follenbostel  to draw the rations, not only  for the airmen and N.C.O.'s  but for the officers' mess as  well. Seeing that the truck  would not become available  until around 11:00 a.m. I spent  the morning, with Cpl. Murdochs assistance, making a  batch of doughnuts to supplement the airmen's supper meal.  I think we made over 200 of  them, which would provide two  apiece and a few left over. We  had just finished our task when  the truck arrived with the usual  driver and two armed  swampers in the back, so I  clambered aboard and away we  went.  Apart from a heated argument with the R.A.S.C.  Sergeant at the supply depot  -he had tried to foist some part -  ly decomposed fish on to me  ~W  |��f/n your time of need.  We CQre.

Shop ewenlnge a, eevel  Sunnyeft Mall, Qlbeone 886-2024 |  -nothing unusual occurred and  we arrived back at camp just as  the supper meal was being served. Now, whether this had any  bearing on what transpired is  debatable, but I remember I  went over to my tend and unbuckled my belt with the two  bolstered guns; I still carried  the Webley .38 and a Colt .45;  threw them on the bed and  then, on the spur of the moment, I decided I would have a  good slug of Aquavit before  proceeding to the mess tent to  see how things were going. One  slug led to a second and it was  surprising how fast the  weariness of a long firing day  disappeared. I felt fine!  Joining the Corporal and  some of my cooks at the serving  table, as the men filed past with  their mess-kits extended to  receive the food, I suddenly  became aware that there were  no doughnuts in sight. The  cook at the end of the serving  line was doling out jam on to  the men's bread ration. Thinking that Cpl. Murdock had  forgotten about the doughnuts  we had made, I halted the lineup and ordered him to go and  get them. To my amazement  (and fury) he informed me that  some time in the afternoon,  during my absence, Flt./Lt. F.  had come over to the mess tent  and, after sampling them, had  ordered that they be taken over  to the officers' mess. Although  he hadn't put it in words, the  implication was that they were  too good for ordinary airmen  -they were officers' fare.  To say that I was infuriated is  to put it mildly so, with the supper line-up still halted, I boiled  over to the officers mess tent,  not only to retrieve the missing  dessert, but to give the Messing.  Officer a piece of my mind. As  it happened, he wasn't around  at the time, so I ordered one of  the cooks there to take them  back to where they belonged.  The serving of supper was  resumed, but we had hardly got  started when Flt./Lt. F. arrived  and, once again, the line was  halted.  Now I want to make it clear  that I didn't need any Aquavit  to assist my getting into an  altercation with this s.o.b. I  hated his guts and I am sure my  feelings were reciprocated. I  cannot remember all that was  said, but I adamantly refused  to let him have the doughnuts  taken to the officers' mess in  spite of the fact he had ordered  one of my men to do just that.  One thing led to another and  we were still wrangling when he  left the tent and I followed him  out. There were no witnesses to  Christmas jj  carolling  The United Churches of the  Sunshine Coast, St. John's at  Davis Bay and Gibsons United  on the corner of Glassford and  Trueman Roads, will be open  for all to attend Services of  Carols and Lessons on  Christmas Eve, Friday,  December 24th.  The Rev. Alex Reid will be  conducting the St. John's Services twice, once beginning at  6:30 p.m. and again, beginning  at 8:00 p.m. At Gibsons, the  church will be open from 10:00  p.m. on, with the Service beginning at 11:00 p.m.  The emphasis on all these  events will be the First  Christmas Story, as told  through reading and song. The  Lessons will be the scriptural  message of the Birth of Christ  and the Carols will be the  familiar ones that can be sung  and enjoyed by all.  An open invitation is extended to all who may wish to "go  to church" on Christmas Eve.  At the conclusion of the  Carols and Lessons at the Gibsons Church, and as close to  midnight as possible, Rev. Mr.  Reid will be offering a celebration of the Sacrament of Holy  Communion. Believing Christians are invited to participate.  For some, Midnight Communion has become a very important tradition. Others may wish  to make it so, beginning this  Christmas.  what occurred, but when he arrived back at the officers' section he was bleeding from a bad  gash on the forehead. He  claimed I struck him, while my  story was (and it was corroborated by each one of my  men when interrogated later),  that he had tripped over one of  the guide-ropes and in all probability had hit his head on a  tent peg. Be that as it may, I  ended up with five charges  against me. I will not  en umerate them, but t h ree were  related to the incident with the  Messing Officer, while two  more were added for good  measure over the taking of a  military vehicle into a forbidden zone without authority.  Once more 1 was back in a  tent with an armed guard pacing up and down outside. I had  plenty of time to think things  over and, as is customary in  ihese cases, I had asked for and  received a copy of the K.R. &  R.'s (King's Rules and Regulations) so I pored over that. I  was also allowed visitors. One  of ihem was the Sergeant with  whom I had shared a tent and  he smuggled me in a bottle of  cognac, so at least I had some liquid refreshment to ease the  ordeal!  When I was taken over to the  Adjutant's quarters a day or so  later and informed that I had  been demoted in rank from  sergeant to corporal, I practically laughed in his face. According to the K.R. & R.'s,  before an N.C.O. can be  demoted, he has the right to request an inquiry into the circumstances leading to the  demotion and also a trial. I had  received neither privilege and  refused to accept such an arbitrary decision.  It wasn't long before I was  called up again. This time I faced both the CO. and the wimp  acting as his adjutant. I was coldly informed that as soon as it  could be arranged I was being  flown back to England. There I  would get my court of enquiry  and, hopefully on their part, a  court martial. On that cheerful  note 1 was dismissed.

Phone 886-7843. #51  Firstly this week, I would like  to wish you all a very Merry  Christmas and thank you for  the interest so many have  shown in the Coast Gardener.  To continue with our look al  various plants, common and  uncommon, I'll begin this column with Balm, also known as  Lemon or Sweet Balm.  Melissa officinalis (LINN.)  The name Melissa is derived  from the Greek word signifying  "bee", because of the great attraction the members of the  Melissa genus have for those insects. Balm, an abbreviatin of  Balsam, has long been used as a  treatment for all kinds of  disorders of the nervous  system. The London Dispensary (1696) says: "Asessenceof  Balm, given in Canary wine  every morning will renew  youth, strengthen the brain,  relieve languishing nature and  prevent baldness."  Many virtues have been  given this plant, from the keeping of bees in the hive, to staunching wounds and curing the  stings of scorpions. It has been  recognized now that the  balsamic oils of aromatic  plants make excellent dressings  for wounds. This is because,  being hydrocarbons, they contain so little oxygen that where  they are used as dressings, the  germs which could cause inflammation are starved out,  and the wound sealed against  infection.  A tea made by steeping 1  ounce of the leaves, in I pint of  boiling water for 15 minutes is  very beneficial in colds and  fevers as it induces a mild  perspiration. It is even more effective combined with lime and  elder flowers or chamomile.  There are many references to its  power to promote longevity;  Llewelyn, Prince of  Glamorgan, who died in his  108th year, took Lemon Balm  tea night and morning. Used  externally, the tea may be used  as a cleansing wash for the face,  and to relieve the pain of gout.  The tea is also said to be useful  in preventing headaches  brought on by over-tiredness,  something which could prove  handy in this Festive Season.  The scent of the leaves is very  long lasting, making it ideal for  use in pot pourris and herb  cushions. A little Lemon Balm  is a very pleasant addition to  fresh fruit and vegetablejuices;  add to China tea for a  refreshing drink, and to wine  cups.'+reshly chopped leaves  may be used on salads, sauces,  egg and milk dishes. Because of  its sweet flavour it is a good  sugar substitute in various  drinks. It may be used frequently and in any quantity  because of its mildness.  Balm is very easy to  cultivate. In fact it usually  grows so well it is advisable to  plant it in a part of the garden  where it may spread without  crowding out other plants. It  prefers a moderately rich soil  and a sunny sheltered spot.  Propagate from seed, cuttings,  or by root division in either spring or autumn. Keep clean  from weeds and cut off the  decayed stalks in the fall.  The next plant is well-known  and easy to grow.  Basil (Ocymum basilium ���  LINN.)  Basil is an annual in these  northern climes. It is best to  4art seeds inside or in the  greenhouse towards the end of  March, for planting outside in  May, when the weather is warming up. The plant likes a rich  soil with plenty of sun. ll does  very well in the greenhouse,  and benefits from frequent  clipping.  Its history is filled with  strange superstition; scorpions  were said to gather where the  plant was cultivated, and some  people believed that if a sprig of  the plant were left under a pot,  in time it would be transformed  into a scorpion. Even smelling  the plant could bring a scorpion  into the brain itself.  In India the plant is sacred to  both Krishna and Vishnu and is  found in many, Hindu houses.  Basil is best known as a  delicious flavour in Italian  cooking, but ii has other uses  too. The leaves, dried and finely ground have been used as  snuff for nasal colds and are  said to clear the brain and help  combat headaches. Wine in  which Basil leaves have steeped  is a digestive tonic and is said to  stimulate milk in nursing  mothers. It may be taken as a  tea, made by steeping 1 ounce  of leaves in I pint of boiling  water for five-10 minutes, or in  soups, ragouts, salads and  other dishes. It is an excellent  flavour in fresh vegetable  juices.  The dried leaves may be used  in pot pourris and two handfuls  of the leaves in 2 pints of boil  ing water makes a great facial  steam bath. It is always good  with tomatoes, cooked, canned, in salads or in tomato juice.  Following is a recipe for  Pesto Alia Genovese. This is a  paste traditionally used with all  pasta dishes. It may be made  and kept in a jar in the  refrigerator to use in soups, on  pizza, French bread or to add  flavour to any pasta.  Grind 1 tablespoon pine nuts  or cashews. Chop finely Vi cup  fresh Basil without stems. To  use dried Basil, add boiling  water which has cooled, to an  equal amount of the leaves, and  let sit until the water has been  soaked up. Add 14 tablespoons  Parmesan cheese, finely  grated. Blend the mixture on a  slow speed in the blender or  pound in a mortar. Add 10  tablespoons oil (sunflower,  corn or olive) drop by drop  while slowly turning. Add a  pinch of salt. Add I Vt ounces  butter in small pieces, stirring  or blending all the while, until  the mixture becomes a thick  paste. Put in a jar and cover  with a thin layef of melted butter. Keep cold.  Another useful recipe is for  aromatic seasoning. Mix the  following ingredients very well  and keep in an airtight bottle.  Use an old spice jar so that  you can shake the seasoning  out when needed.  1 tablespoon each nutmeg,  mace, dried ground bay  leaves.  2 tablespoons each ground  cloves, ground peppercorns,  dried winter savory.  3 tablespoons each dried  basil, dried marjoram, dried  thyme.  1 teaspoon each cayenne  pepper, dried ground lemon  peel, dehydrated garlic.

BC FERRIES  SCRD details  1983 budget  The Sunshine Coast  Regional District's 1983 provisional budget was outlined to  directors Monday at a special  meeting of the SCRD.  Secretary-treasurer Larry  Jardine took directors through  a detailed ewBiaation of expected revenues and expenditures for 1983, in a budget  that will realize, if approved, a  one per cent reduction in expenditures; but, as a result of  declining revenues, will result  in an increasein taxation of between 14 and 17 per cent depending on allocation of funds saved from non participation in  joint use facilities.  Based on an assessed value  for an average property on the  Coast of $90,000, the total  SCRD portion of the 1983 tax  bill is expected to be $36 in area  A; $39 in area B; $39 in area C  and $49 in area E. This  represents an increase of $6, $7  and $8 respectively, for a total  estimated tax bill of $584 in  area A; $545 in area B; $573 in  area C and $566 in area E.  Total expenditures for the  1983 provisional budget are set  at $1,633,410, excluding the  user-pay functions such as  Water, Sewer and the Pender  Harbour pool. Estimated total  expenditure for 1982 is  $1,648,235.  Budget hignlights include:  an 11 per cent increase in expenditures for general government, a 12 per cent increase in  tire protection, a 15 per cent increase in street lighting expenditures, a 20 per cent increase in  planning (a result of the fact  that a third planner was not in  place during part of 1982), a 52  per cent increase in expenditures for the office of the  Economic Commission, (the  Economic Commission was in  operation nine months of 1982)  and a decrease of 64 per cent in  SCRD expenditures on the  joint use of schools.  Jardine pointed out to directors that the regional board's  share of the total property tax  bill represents only six to nine  per cent, depending on the area  concerned.  The 1983 provisional budget  was approved by the board at  Thursday night's regular  meeting. At that meeting as  well, a motion put forward by  Sechelt mayor Bud Koch to  utilize the $100,000 earmarked  for building acquisition, was  defeated.

Christmas, the time of  year when, in this country, the  turkey is the main feature on  the family table. In other parts  of the world, fish and seafood  may be the important item, or  at least one of the special foods  on the menu.

Koch gives reasons  ���  by Julie Warkman  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch  told the Coast News that the big  reason for recommending that  the "staff of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District return to a  fivei-day work week is for continuity in dealing with issues  over the counter. He explained  that the problem with a four-  day work week is that people  usually take Mondays and  Fridays off, not days during the  week. What happens is that the  person who relieves on Monday  is totally at a loss when they  return to relieve on Friday, as  so much has happened during  the week that it takes more time  to sort out where things are,  than it does to do the work.  jri what appears to be a contradictory statement, Koch  then said, "When things (the  economy) get better in a year or  two, perhaps we can look at going back to a four-day week."  The staff at the SCRD  presently work a 35-hour week  and the offices are open 47  hours a week, from 8:00 a.m.  -5:00 p.m. Monday through  Wednesday and until 6:00 p.m.  on Thursdays and Fridays. The  offices remain open over the  lunch hour. These hours are  especially convenient for  builders who can get their  business at the regional district  office done before beginning  the day, or after the work day,  thereby not interfering with  their normal work. It is also  convenient for people who live  out of town. There is time to  catch an afternoon ferry in  Vancouver and make it to the  regional district office before it  closes that day.  If the regional staff were to  return to a five-day work week,  something they haven't done  for approximately six years, the  regional offices would be open  a maximum of 40 hours a week  and quite likely will be closed  over the lunch hour, thereby  greatly reducing the hours the  public is served.  Koch noted to the Coast  News that he was not trying to  make it difficult for people. At  Thursday's regional board  meeting he stated that the motion by no means reflects on the  staff, or the regional district,  but is a sign of the times.

Goddard told the Coast  News that in doing so she tried  to spread the responsibility  fairly and represent both ends  of trie Coast. The following is  the list of the various committees and board appointments.  Mrs. Goddard also noted that  she still hopes to name  members from the public to  these committees, where possible.  Jim Gurney, Area E director, will serve as Finance chairman and will also serve as an  alternate on the Public Utilities  Committee, along with Sechelt  Mayor Bud Koch. Public  Utilities will be chaired by Area  C director Jon McRae, The  Planning Committee will be  chaired by Area A director Ian  Vaughan, who will also sit on  the Parks Committee as alter  nate. Area B director, Brett  McGillivray, will serve with  Vaughan on the Planning  Committee and will chair the  Parks Committee.  New this year is a Service  Committee, which is set up to  deal with personnel matters.  Chairman Goddard will personally chair this committee,  with assistance from Area B  director Pat Murphy and Area  E director Jim Gurney.  A committee to deal with  Tourism and Economic  Development will be chaired by  Area F director John Shaske,  with Area C director Jon  McRae serving as alternate.  The Union Board of Health,  Hospital and PEP Committee  will be chaired by Area B director Pat Murphy, chairman  Goddard will serve as alternate.  Noting the light load given to  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch, Goddard told the Coast News that  in view of public statements  made by Koch concerning his  work load, she felt that it was in  everyone's best interests to  keep his involvement to a  minimum.  Teachers terminated  Programme cuts and staff  reductions have resulted in the  termination of one-and-a-half  teaching positions in School  District 46 schools.  The board's decision to terminate the Native Arts Cultural  Programme at Sechelt Elementary School means that Joanne  Meyer, a Sechelt teacher on  temporary contract, will lose  her job.  Jane Griffiths, a half-time  learning assistance teacher at  West Sechelt Elementary has  had her temporary contract terminated as the result of programme reductions.  The total number of full-  time teaching positions in the  district was 180.35 prior to the  terminations which were effective December 17th.  Representatives of the  Sechelt Indian Band are expected to petition the board at  Tuesday's meeting to reinstate  the Native Arts Cultural Programme.
