 ������  s  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  90.8  by Caryl Worden  Improved ferry service,  refusal of toxic waste, coastwide  recycling, and a co-operative  Sunshine Coast economic plan  were addressed at a governmental 'summit meeting' Thursday  night.  Representatives from the  SCRD, Sechelt and Gibsons  Councils and the SIB met at the  Sechelt Indian Band Administration Offices to discuss  issues of concern to the entire  area.  The summit included Chief  Tom Paul, Councillors Theresa  Jeffries, Ben Pierre and Gary  Feschuk, SIB Administrator  Harold Fletcher; SCRD Board  Chairman Peggy Connor,  Directors Jeremy Frith, Jim  Gurney, Brett McGillivray and  Gordon Wilson and Administrator Larry Jardine; Sechelt  Mayor Tom Meredith,  Aldermen Joyce Kolibas, Mike  Shanks and Doug Reid, and  Administrator Malcolm  Shanks; Gibsons Mayor Diane  Strom, Aldermen Jerry Dixon  and John Reynolds and Administrator Lorraine Goddard.  The environment was the  focus of much of the meeting.  Of immediate concern was that  the dumping of toxic waste into  local federally designated ocean  dump sites no longer be  tolerated.  SCRD   Director   Gordon  Coast summit meeting  Wilson told the meeting that  toxic waste from three sites in  the Vancouver area, including  the Expo Lands sludge, will be  moved in the near future and  that one of the four options  detailed by the government is  ocean dumping. Sections of  Howe Sound and Malaspina  Strait are official federal ocean  dump sites.  Unanimous approval was  given that a letter from the four  governments stating that they'll  "no longer accept toxic waste"  will be sent immediately to  federal and provincial  ministries.  The representatives also  agreed to take a resolution back  to each of their councils that  would see all local governments  and other bodies such as the  school board, St. Mary's  Hospital and Community Services pool their stationary purchase orders to buy recycled  paper. The group also approved  taking all used paper products  to SCRAPS for recycling.  With recent news of BC Ferry  service changes, the summit  group will demand a meeting in  the next two weeks with Provincial Highways Minister Rita  Johnson to discuss the shortfall  of service to the Coast. "We  had an 18 per cent increase in  ferry use last year alone," said  SCRD Director Jim Gurney,  adding that was the largest increase of all runs in the fleet.  Director Wilson said the ferry  crews were also upset about being on the front line. "I've  heard of two recent fist fight incidents at the terminals when  someone had to wait for the  next sailing," Wilson said.  A coastwide approach to  economic development was also  discussed with Gurney submitting a proposal from the EDC  recommending formation of a  co-operative Economic Task  Force to "determine the  economic goals, objectives and  priorities of each political  jurisdiction, to identify common areas of interest and how  these common areas can be cooperatively addressed."  Gurney said the provincial  and federal funding would be  available to such a group to  carry out such projects as  downtown revitalization in  Sechelt and Gibsons.  Gibsons Alderman John  Reynolds embraced the idea  saying: "Economic development is a regional issue, even if  it happens down the road from  us, it impacts us."  Sechelt Alderman Doug Reid  agreed. "The Tourism Action  Committee worked very well  and this seems a similar idea."  The individual political bodies  will now examine the proposal.

Speakers for the parents'  group reiterated the concerns  that they have expressed on  several previous occasions and  in additions cited Ministry of  Education Bulletin 38 which  recommends that school boards  give a one-year notice of any  change in school programing.  "I recognize the board's effort in coming to a consensus on  a difficult decision," said Dr.  Rob Lehman. "But the short  notice we have been given  makes consideration of alternatives extremely difficult.  Some parents are considering a  move to another location where  early immersion is available.  I'm appealing to the board to  recognize the intent of Bulletin  38 and give us time to consider  alternatives for our children and  ourselves."  District Superintendent Clifford Smith pointed out that  Bulletin 38 was intended by the  ministry as a guideline only and  does not oblige the board to  follow that route.  "We have consulted with our  lawyers and the legal advisors of  the ministry of education and  the head of the modern  language department on the  subject of Bulletin 38," the  district superintendent told the  Coast News. "We were told  that the bulletin is set up as a  guideline only and is not binding."  Another meeting has been set  up for March 9 between Smith  and members of Parents for  French to discuss the issue.  Gospel Rock  hearing delayed  A public hearing Into the rezoning of the Gospel Rock property has been changed from Monday, March 12 to Tuesday,  March 13 at 7 pm.  The change was necessary to accommodate the RCMP  Public Complaints Commission, which wlU hold public hearings in Ihe Town council chamber) during the week. About 30  people ire expected to take part la the Inquiry, the first its  Idad ever held In Canada.  by Dave Fraser  Steering youths away from  drugs and alcohol.  That's what Gibsons Council  was asked to support at its  Committee-of-a-Whole  meeting, February 27.  Making representations were  Jim Doyle of the Gibsons  Outreach program and April  Mackenzie-Moore of the Sunshine Coast Breakaway Society.  But only Mackenzie-Moore was  able to walk away with  assurances of support from the  three counmcil members present.  Both Mayor Diane Strom  ."and Alderman John Reynolds  said they had no problem endorsing Gibsons Outreach, but  Alderman Ken Collins had  reservations about the program  and about Doyle, a Gibsons  youth worker, who was told a  decision to endorse the program  will be made at the March 6  council meeting.  Doyle wanted two things  from council: a letter of endorsement to set up and operate  a drop-in centre for Gibsons'  youths; and public land on  which to locate the centre.  The endorsement is necessary  if the group hopes to qualify for  funding from the BC Youth  Advisory Council.  Collins said that since he  knew nothing about Doyle he  was hesitant to endorse the project. To allay his concerns, GO  member Gwen Robertson informed council that the program started before Doyle arrived on the scene in January,  prompted by requests from  teens who were not into drugs  or alcohol.  Doyle took issue with Collins'  concerns about not knowing  about him or his program,  listing several local people in the  community who have endorsed  the program. He asked the  alderman if he could suggest  alternative things for kids to do  on Friday nights, to which Collins said he could not.  Doyle also pointed out that  merchants were not happy  about kids hanging out at Sunnycrest Mall, based on his recent survey of 15 mall merchants. They felt unanimously  that youths turn to drugs,  alcohol and vandalism because  they have nowhere to go. A majority felt that the youths' hanging around the mall was  detrimental to business and  would support a youth drop-in  centre.  Doyle presented letters of endorsement from Martyn Wilson, principal of Elphinstone  Secondary; Sergeant Ed Hill of  the Gibsons RCMP detachment; Margaret Fahlman, director of Sechelt's Alcohol and  Drug Counselling Society; and  Paul McKibbon, district supervisor of the Ministry of Social  Services and Housing.  In a letter Blane Hagedorn of  SuperValu endorsed the project  with these words: "Our area's  population   has   increased  dramatically and services to our  youth have not kept pace.  Where in many areas of BC the  common complaint of youths is  that 'there's nothing else to do  here except get drunk or  stoned,' they have quite a  legitimate complaint here.  There is one theatre (if the  youth can afford it), the swimming pool, and a curling rink  that 'welcome' their participation. Beyond that, there is little  else for them to do."  But these endorsements,  along with several others from  local businesses, were not  enough for Collins, who said he  had reservations about  government-funded services.  He said solutions should centre  around families, what he called  'the building block of societies.'  Collins said labeling Gibsons  as a problem area was  dangerous because it could attract more problem people to  the area, and also put out the  message that local police aren't  doing their job.  Doyle pointed out his group  was not asking for taxpayer's  dollars. It simply wanted moral  support and civic land on which  to  locate  a  trailer,   recently  donated by Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper, through the efforts  of the local Rotary Club.  Since the trailer will not  become available until the fall,  Doyle said there is an urgent  need to find a space as soon as  possible. The group plans to approach the curling club for the  use of their facility during its off  season.  Mayor Strom said youths are  now dealing with a different  reality than when council  members were young. "When  we grew up we had both  parents. What we now consider  the family group has already  fallen apart."  Doyle presented a 1988  school district report, which  noted that out of a local student  population of 1044, 594 (or 57  per cent) were identified as being at risk and in need of emotional support. This was a result  of family dysfunction, family  crisis, abuse (physical,  psychological, sexual) and drug  or alcohol abuse in the family or  by the student. Pregnancy and  depression, including suicidal  tendencies, were also listed as  factors.

And to whom I was like to give offence.  ' Something there is that doesn't love a watt,  That wants it down..."  from Mending Walls by Robert Frost  Some concerned Redrooffs citizens would like to set up  barriers in their community. Their walls would be make of  ink, designed to define the type of walls where their  neighbours live. They'd like a by-law saying that moved-in  houses must be one and one-quarter times the value of  neighbouring units.  Meanwhile, we hear the plea for affordable housing. On  the Lower Mainland, construction of mega-homes creeps  up the slopes and into the valeys. They replace seasoned  structures which don't reflect today's high price of the  land under them and don't live up to the trendiness their  owners want to emulate.  These new 4000-plus square foot giants consume untold  amounts of timber and energy. The originals are smashed  into dumpster-sized bits and hauled to the local landfills.  And yet everywhere we hear the plea to save the environment.  On the Sunshine Coast, there is an option that satisfied  these appeals���recycled houses. Barged-in houses cost up  to $25,000���moving costs, rafters and all. A piece of land  can still be purchased on our fair shores for $25,000. And  to make the house livable and meet the enforced building  code regulations will cost up to another $15,000. A home  for $65,000 is a dream come true for first-time buyers.  The project still gives jobs to local tradesmen and  building suppliers for the upgrading requirements. Yet it  consumes a minimum amount of resources, natural or  otherwise.  That these houses aren't aesthetically appealing when  complete, is all in the eye of the beholder. Certainly they  don't look great while being fixed up, but then neither  does a new house construction site. And never mind some  of the older Coast-built houses that could use a facelift.  There are subdivisions on the Coast with restraints on  what a house can look like. The barged houses aren't going there. They are, mostly, being put in a more relaxed  rural neighbourhood alongside trailers, cabins, older ranchers and, yes, some new luxury-class dwellings. Isn't that  what makes living in the country worthwhile? The  freedom to be individuals and still be part of a community? For those that want conformity, there's always Vancouver's 'burbs.  A by-law that imposes a one and one-quarter times  value on moved-in houses, sets the precedent for a ghetto  system. And what if a new neighbour decides to put up a  $200,000 home next to your $150,000 spread? Will you  rebuild to keep pace with the standards?

Nutter  An odd but probably quite  common thing is that you wake  up in the morning with a particular old song running  through your head. There  doesn't seem any reason for it  being this particular song.  Maybe you dig about for any  bits of dream giving some connection, but there's not a clue.  You may run back over the late  night shows, but how can you  get Begin the Beguin out of  Angels With Dirty Faces?  Something quite rum is obviously going on. Could it be  that while we are asleep there is  some kind of concert in progress? The little nodules or  neurons or whatever jamming  with each other?  Some   are   saxes   perhai  some trombones and so  Pretty far-out maybe, but th  are  dudes, out. there  grants to look into shakj  hypotheses than this. />  The other morning with me it  was Tell Me Pretty Maiden, Are  There Any More At Home Like  You. Well, really. I went about  putting on coffee, feeding the  cat, etc. singing this thing under'  my breath, shaking a top hat in  the air, doing the odd buck-and-  wing. My house-mate caught  me at it but he's not a man to  comment, or perhaps even  notice anything before  breakfast.  The point in this case is that  these are not songs that you  might have heard and barely .  registered, in say, the last week  or so. I think it most likely that  1 have not heard Tell Me Pretty  Maiden sung, danced, played or  whistled in maybe IS years.  Time then is not a factor but  neither is style, genre or  whatever. I can wake up with  Yellow Submarine, Hie Anvil  Chorus, or On A Tree By A  River A Utile Tom-til, and  nothing at all to indicate why.  It was Tell Me Pretty Maiden  that really got me thinking  about it. It was so unlikely and  so pervasive and it wouldn't  shake. I began to realize that I  couldn't remember reading  anything about this  phenomenon, which must  unless I'm mad be reasonably  common. In fact 1 went out and  got a book about the brain, called The Brain, available at the  Gibsons Library.  It's a big book, quite recent,  written for the layman with lots  of illustrations. Some of these  are of 'neurons', who are the  particular cells involved. , ,  ,-. There are about two billion  of them and some have as many  as 200,000 tentacles of connections, so she's complicated,  all right. I turned to the index  under 'M', and would you  believe there's nothing in this  all-in book about the brain  under 'music'.  So we'll just have to soldier  on for the time strictly on conjecture. First then, is this in fact  a common occurence? And second, if so, does it make any  nevermind?  For the first it seems to me we  may have to launch 'the Sunshine Coast inquiry into nocturnal neural musicality', and for  this clearly we'll need a grant.  For the second, well of  course, it would be significant.  Consider a judge. He can wake  in the morning with Akeste  Akfa, or he can go to the bench  with Tie Me Kangaroo Down  Sport. We cannot suppose this  would have no effect on him  and through no fault of his  own. Forces beyond his control.  It's most likely, of course,  that if one tore oneself away  from the blessed shore here and  got to a reference library in the  city that there'd be something  like a shelf of psychology books  bearing on the subject. But the  books, of course, would not be  coming to the same conclusions,  psychology being what it is.  There seems to me, spring;  coming on and all, scope still -  for the Sunshine Coast inquiry.  There are certainly questions  unanswered. Do, for example,  people brought up on 'rock'.  have this experience? And if so,  how do they get any sleep?  Gospel Rock Awakening  (an excerpt)  After the muttonfat winter  spring comes suddenly and late  like tht point of a joke  to a sluggish mind  Sprung  from the prison of myself  I walk through new-born brilliance  the warm      winding  arbutus-fingered road  Below the religious rock  evangelist-lettered  by some long-ago zealot,  the sun has pried open  the small glittering eyes of the sea  They blink out before me  like startled flecks of gold  towards a horizon of mist  Here it was  we once, clutching,  kissed     In the haul drift  of another year  It was raining     or had rained  a different jury of clouds  stared dispassionately down  and found us guilty of love  Peter Trower  From Unmarked Doorways (Harbour Publishing 1989)  Down from the mountain  More on the snow pack  by Sam Moses  If you make the trip into the  Chapman Lake region via the:  old trail in the late spring, at  first you'll find patches of snow f  here and there beneath the trees.  On a sunny day the forest is!  dense in some areas that at a j  distance it is hard to tell the dif-  ference between a sunny spot on  mossy forest floor, and a re-)|  maining pocket of snow.  Then as you round a corner  you'll find yourself looking at  what might appear to be the;  wall of a small glacier. It is in  fact the receding snow that  slowly melts its way up towards  the lake. It melts slowly because  of the large trees that keep that  area remarkably cool even during the heat of summer.  That slow melt is what creates  a 'stable'  runoff, something;  that takes care of itself without  any outside interference.  We label it a watershed, but I  think more accurately it can be  thought of as a carefully balanced scale. It takes care of itself  and has been doing so for a lot  longer than we've been here.  We simply tap into it and what  it has to offer.. .and at present at  what cost?  I first became familiar with  the Chapman Lake region when  I decided to stop buying lottery  tickets, invested a few dollars in  a gold pan, a few more in a Free  Miner's Licence and set off in  search of the valuable yet hard  to find yellow rock.  This is not to say the area is  rich in the mineral, just like a  thousand and one other places  here on the Coast, it shows signs  of 'colour' (traces of gold). 1  just like the looks of the place in  general and thought that my  odds of striking it rich up there  were as good as winning the lottery.  So 1 outfitted myself and a  lad who had nothing to do that  summer (except get into trouble  from over-active hormones)  with all the necessary gear for a  trip into Chapman Lake - the  hard way.  We gained access to Chapman Creek by way of the old  road that went in from the  Homestead Restaurant.  Upon reaching the first  bridge over the creek, a friend  who had been kind enough to  give us a ride up, bid us farewell  and down into the creek we  went. One of the best ways to  proceed prospecting on a major  creek (so said a number of  books I had accumulated on the  subject) was to travel up it  checking all its tributaries as  well as bends in the main creek  itself, up-rooted trees along the  bank, etc.  Needless to say I became  aware of just how intricate the  tributary system of Chapman  Creek really is. Each and every  creek and stream regardless of  how small is an important part  of the greater whole.  1 think what the controversy  over the Chapman Creek watershed needs is a big shovel and  I'm not thinking of using it for  'snow' removal. When I voiced  my concern over logging in  watersheds to a person at our  local Forestry Office, 1 was  assured that it can be done safely and that the Greater Vancouver Regional District  (GVRD) had done so with no  problem.  Is that why they're now looking at water filtration systems  that cost $200 million each?  If you check your local supermarket you'll find that bottled  water sales on the Coast have  increased dramatically over the  last few years, no doubt as a  result of somebody tinkering in  and around Mother Nature's  own 'cost free' filtration  system.  Hard to believe that not far  from here an outfit from the US  came up to buy truck loads of  our pure water for a particular  brand of beer which boasted  about 'pure spring water'.  Making observations of the  watershed from a helicopter  doesn't help, nor does driving  out there on a logging road to  have a looksee, and trying to  comfort people with such  nonsense as logging the watershed might in fact help snow  retention - come onl  "Oh there's plenty of timber  around," they tell us as though  we don't have eyes to see. If  such is the case why do they  keep invading watersheds?  Surely with all that timber  around, they could go  somewhere else and save us the  cost of developing a Water  system which no doubt will far  exceed in cost the amount they  make on the timber they take  out. What kind of sense does  this make?  It makes sense to them for  they are the ones filling their  pockets. No, the big timber  companies and the forest  management people don't teem  to understand how a watershed  works. I wonder if they really  want to know?

On the day of the recent band  election, you published a letter  in'support of one of the candidates for chief. As your  newspaper is one of the primary  sources of news for band  members, the publication of the  letter at that time had a particularly forceful impact on this  readership and in consequence,  affected the band council and  its members.  This was regrettable for two  reasons: firstly, the letter was  apparently submitted to you  anonymously and published  anonymously; secondly, even  making allowances for the heat  of an election campaign, the let  ter distorted the truth and contained significant misstatements  of fact. We thus ask that you  publish this letter in its entirety  to set the record straight.

Dear Board Members:  As a former school trustee  and one who was on the board  at the time of the decision to implement early French Immersion, I must protest the decision  of this board to 'phase out' Ihe  program.  1 do not say this for any  reasons of ego. What I have  wrought, others are putting  asunder. But I feel there are  some notable reasons for my  protest:  1. When the board adopted  this, program it assured the  parents-who would be enrolling  their children in early French  Immersion that it would be an  on-going part of the school  district curriculum.  The board further assured the  parents that in the event it  became necessary through lack  of enrollment, etc. the board  would give one year's notice of  the cancellation of the program.  2. The provincial government, ministry of education,  has a like policy for school  districts which I understand this  board chooses to ignore.

Some reasons given by  those opposed to early French  Immersion are that this program is costing too much  money for small class sizes and  that these kids are receiving a  better education than those in  the English program.  Well, why not cut the class  sizes in the English program?  Or is this another example of  the 'level playing field' where  everyone must be dragged down  to a lower level? Who is that  fair to?  Cancelling early French Immersion will not improve the  English program.  This whole procedure reminds me of the story of a  woman who purchased two  chickens. When she got home  she discovered that one of them  was sickly. Being a disciple of  the benefits of chicken soup,  she killed the healthy chicken,  made soup of it and fed it to the  sick chicken.

And, if individual band  members do default in their  mortgage payments, the Band  Housing Authority does indeed  sue them to collect. This has  always been the practice here;  we used to do it under Stan Dixon when he was chief.  ��� "...if we had invested the  money we borrowed in activities  that expanded our capacity to  produce more resourceful (people) band members. That would  have generated new wealth with  which to pay it back." "He  (Stan) knows the potential we  have and will initiate good  economic development projects  for the betterment of the Sechelt  Indian Band."  What the anonymous letter  writers have failed to mention is  the name of our band economic  development officer; yes, it's  Stan Dixon.  We look forward to seeing  this letter in print occupying as  conspicuous a position as that  accorded the anonymous letter  that precipitated it.

"It's a vast district," said  Brian, "of 27,000 square miles,  and 36 schools. Grades 11 and  12 are offered in Williams Lake  or 100-Mile House and  domitories take care of students  who live too far away to bus."  Brian has been assistant  superintendent of schools in our  Sunshine Coast district for  almost two years now and  before that was principal first of  Sechelt Elementary and then of  Chatelech Secondary. His first  three years here were on the  teaching staff of Elphinstone.  Before coming to BC Brian  taught in Saskatchewan as well  as being principal of several  schools latterly in Dinsmore, a  composite Grades 1 to 12 school  of 300 students.  "My very first year of  teaching was in a Manitoba  rural school right after my  Grade 12 graduation. An eye-  opener experience."  "How is it you are starting  out as superintendent at this  time of the year?"  "Art Holmes has been temporary superintendent there for  the past year or so, but he is  leaving to travel. You remember  Art Holmes?"  Yes indeed. Art Holmes filled  the superintendent's position  here in our Sunshine Coast  district to everyone's satisfaction until Clifford Smith's appointment.  Brian Butcher has bachelors'  degrees in arts and in education  from the University of Saskatchewan and an M.Ed in administration from UBC. Besides  his teaching and administration  duties, Brian did a greal deal of  coaching in baseball, minor  hockey, and men's fastball in  the district. His drug and  alcohol awareness program  while he was at Chatelech initiated an approach to a problem that the whole community  could take note of.  Emma's thoughtfulness of  people and her friendly manner  will be missed when she leaves  her position as dental receptionist in Dr. Bland's office  after 15 years of service there.  The Butcher's daughter,  Janet, is completing her degree  in mathematics at UBC, along  with a minor in computer  sciences. Their son, Geoff, majors in history.  "Both graduated from  Elphinstone," said Brian, "only  two of the many Elphinstone  students who have continued  their studies at the university  level."

The  Gibsons program will start up in  May at a donated building next  to the Alano Club.  The program, which she says  has been highly successful in  Penticton, is fashioned after the  12-step Alcoholic Anonymous  program which incorporates  spiritual principles - because  abusers 'can't do it alone' on  the road to recovery.  She said 10 per cent of our  youths are seriously trapped in  substance abuse. "They want to  get out but don't know how to  do it."  During the Breakaway program participants live at home  and meet after school, evenings  and Saturdays. There is also a  program for parents and siblings of addicts to meet.  Mackenzie-Moore said  $13,000 has been raised for the  program so far. The group has  applied for another $10,000  from the BC Youth Advisory  Council and has asked for help  from the Vancouver Sun's  Children Fund.  Council members told  Mackenzie-Moore that town  policy is to give grants to groups  which operate specifically  within Gibsons. The committee  agreed to recommend to the  Sunshine   Coast   Regional  NOTICE OF  PUBLIC  HEARING  Zoning Amendment  Bylaw No. 555-28,1990  Pursuant to Sections 956 and 957 of the Municipal Act, a  PUBLIC HEARING will be held at the Municipal Hall at 474  South Fletcher Road at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13,  1990 to consider Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-28,  1990 which is proposed to amend the Town of Gibsons  Zoning Bylaw No. 555,1986.  The Intent of the amending bylaw is as follows:  1. That certain parcel or parcels of land in the Town of Gibsons more particularly known and legally described as  Blocks 6 and that part of Block 7, D.L. 842, Plan 6755, as  shown outlined on the map below, Identified as Appendix "A" to Bylaw No. 555-28,1990 be rezoned from the  existing Single-Family Residential Zone 4 (R-4) to the  proposed Single Family Residential Zone 1 (R-1).

Since there have been  over 100 referrals a month to  the Lower Mainland the past  year, this service here in our  own district will be a timely  benefit to future patients.  The cost of the mammography equipment���darkroom, camera, film processor-  is $100,000. The hospital administration has been working  on this project for a year now  and has paid for the installation  of the equipment with money  available for other projects of  lower priority.

I���.  art ftA�� �����- ������-      :-  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  Oil and gas spills into our  oceans and rivers seems to be  becoming a common news story  every day. But do we even hear  about all of the spills? I doubt  it.  Last Saturday you could see  and smell a dark, rather yellowy  slick winding with the tide  around the wharf and docks in  Gibsons Harbour. Ocean-going  ducks were quickly swimming  through it, to get to 'cleaner  waters' past the little wharf in  front of Gramma's Pub.  According to Art McGinnis  of Gibsons Marina, no one  reported this spill and definitely  no one came forward to clean it  up.  Last week 70,000 gallons of  diesel were spilled into the  already very polluted waters of  Puget Sound off Seattle. This  was committed by a US Navy  vessel.  Last week Vancouver Har  bour was hit by 40,000 litres of  heavy diesel fuel from a Polish  fishboat rammed by a rusty  freighter.  How many ocean-going birds  suffered a terrible death from  these totally unnecessary acts of  man? We hear in the thousands,  but there must be many more.  Vancouver Harbour used to  be a beautiful harbour, just as  Vancouver used to be a  beautiful city. Spanish Banks,  Locarno Beach and English Bay  Beach used to be my family's  favourite picnic, playground  and swimming places all summer long. But by the early 70s I  quit swimming in the waters of  English Bay. There was just too  much foam, brown stuff and  garbage in it. Another reason  not to even go to these beaches  is thai the once clean white sand  has turned into one giant  ashtray of butts for all the  smokers.  Apparently the diesel and  fuel-fired   boilers   and   diesel  Crane owner Larry Stewart coaxes a sofa Into the patio door of  new Gibsons resident Luke Mueller's apartment.

But these weren't very en-  viromentally safe either, as they  produced more air pollution  because of the heavy black  smoke pouring out of their  stacks.  1 always assume that the  water is clean in Roberts Creek,  at least of oil and gas. Along  with other Creekers I am  thankful there are no really appropriate locations along this  stretch of the Sunshine Coasl  where a marina would be feasible. Maybe in some faroff date  it will be so crowded here that a  marina will have to become  feasible. I hope not.  FIREHALL INEWtj,  Fire Department Chief Denis  Mulligan would like to pass on  an urgent message to all you  Roberts Creek parents out there  who have push button memory  telephones. If you have the Tire  department number (885-3222)  entered into your memory  telephone and have toddlers  playing with your telephone,  please make sure that it is not  connected to the fire department number.  Denis stated that they are  having a very serious problem  with their six lines being tied up  by small children playing with  these memory telephones. B.C.  Telephone Company has been  asked to take action but often  they do not have enough time to  trace numbers.  Obviously this is a line that  must be kept open for a real  emergency. Please co-operate  and check your telephone and  DO NOT let children play with  telephones. They are not a toy!  February was election of officers month for the Roberts  Creek Fire Department.

Carol Adams, Ctairperson  Secondary students take advantage of modern computer labs to  prepare for business and university. Modern equipment and high  academic courses like the Calculus 11 program rival those offered in  other districts.  Creating Our Future  The school district, along with  all the other districts in the province, is embarking on a major  program of change and innovation  with the forward-looking direction of the province's Year 2000  program.  The Year 2000 program has  given a spur to serious thinking  about the purpose and direction of  education.  At the end of last year the Board  It's Not AH  Leisure In  Continuing  Education  Traditionally Continuing Education has focussed on providing  opportunities for people to gain  skills in leisure time activities.  In our district this is still an important part of the service offered,  but several programs are offered  each year which help people become more efficient at their own  job, or to gain the skills necessary  to change to a different field.  An entry program in the Tourism industry was started in October last year, and a job development program is presently training  women to become entrepreneurs  in their own business.  The Medical Dental Receptionist course boasted 12 graduates,  and Industrial First Aid has trained  more than 30 people.  Presently being explored is the  possibility of offeringOpen Learning Institute courses for the 1990/  91 year.  of School Trustees adopted a motto  for the district to accompany the  new logo which is now used on all  official material.  The motto, "Creating Our Future," is both a direction and a  reminder to all who work in the  district that the major focus of the  education we provide is to help  students develop those skills, attitudes, behaviours, and understandings which will help them  function effectively in our future  world.  The motto has many meanings  and interpretations for the district.  This section looks at some of the  ways schools are looking at the  meaning of "Creating Our Future"  in their situation.  Learning On  The Job  200 students on the Sunshine  Coast are truly creating their future by getting involved in finding  out what it means to be apaitof the  work force. These students are  involved in Work Experience 11,  Cooperative Education (T.O.P.s)  and Career Preparation Programs  offered at each of the District's  three secondary schools.  The choice of what careerprepa-  ration area to focus on at each  school is decided by student interest, staff qualifications, suitability  of facilities and equipment  Over 60% of the students who  have successfully completed the  Work Experience program have  been offered jobs after graduation.  The next time you encounter a  student working at a local business, ask them what they are gaining from the experience; you will  be encouraged by their answers.  A portable computer gives Ihis student a chance to keep up with  difficult assignments ��� just one way students get special help.  Special Students Are Not Forgotten  Every school within the district  has a staff member identified as  the Special Education Teacher to  oversee the programs for any children who have a special need,  . whether they be gifted, physically  handicapped, learning disabled, or  in need of special language programs.  Following the Ministry of Education's encouragement to inte  grate special needs children into  regular classrooms, the district has  initiated a program where all children have arxess to regular classes.  In many cases special equipment has been purchased by the  Board or by community donation  to help students to function to their  highest potential. The most recent  acquisitions have been laptop  computers which the students can  take with them from place to place.  Somenewcompuiers in the schools  allow visually impaired students  to "hear" what they type, or enlarge the print so that it may be  more easily read.  Through the dynamic special  education program the district is  preparing, and helping to create, a  meaningful and worthwhile future  for all students.  Education Week is Every Week!  Although one week is chosen  each year in which to celebrate  and recognize the education system, the work of education goes on  throughout the year.  ' The more than 300 people who  make up the teaching and support  staff of the school district, and  who work to help create a positive  and satisfying future for the 3000  students in our schools, are proud  to be associated with the a pro-  What Do You  Want For Your  Child?  Given the opportunity most  parents would say something like:  "I want my child to be happy, get  along with other people, to know  how to read and write well, to  think for themselves, and to be  able to do whatever they want in  their lives."  The staffs in each school in the  district are currently exploring  specific ways to make ideas come  alive which will accomplish exactly those wishes.  As these ideas are developed,  school improvement plans will be  formed which will outline exactly  what that school will do to assist  students to create their own futures as life-long, independent  learners.  Education Week  -March5 to 10  An older student helps a younger child with reading in a Peer  Tutoring program. Programs like this, and the community campus  concept being explored in at least one of our schools, is helping to  redefine education in the district.  Students Care ��� That's The New Message  Schools in the district are developing a theme of caring.  "Caring For Ourselves, Caring  For Others, and Caring For the  Environment" is the motto of one  of the elementary schools, and the  ideas behind it are echoed in all of  them.  Caring for each other  $  There is a new atmosphere of  1 caring for each other by the students in our schools.  A visit to a playground will often see a group of students deep in  discussion, sometimes with obviously strong emotions bared. One  student is calm and taking a leadership role. With training the student is able to help friends at the  school to resolve the conflicts that  inevitably occur in the daily contacts between a large group of  people in close proximity.  A visit to a primary classroom  might well find some students who  seem a little large lobe there. These  could well be gradeS or 6 students  who are sharing their skills to help  the younger children with their  reading. The older children are  taking pan in oneofthe many Peer  Tutoring programs which not only  help the younger ones, but are also  part of the children's learning of  social responsibilities.  Caring tor the environment  Across the district students,  teachers, and parents in the schools  are working together on projects  which have an immediate impact  on their environment  At a number of schools tree  plantingplans are underway to help  create a more pleasant and greener  surrounding for the future.  All of the schools and school  district offices are now actively  engaged in a recycling program as  students and staff have become  more conscious of the need to  conserve dwindling resources. In  some schools compost heaps are  being prepared 10 recycle unwanted  food and other organic waste.  Last year the district developed  a global studies program which is  used in our schools to help students become aware of the responsibilities to themselves and others,  and that we have all have a responsibility for each other's welfare.

We all know  that. But there is a young man  in a maroon-coloured car who  travels in the Redrooffs area  who doesn't seem to know this.  Last week two children who  are close to my heart were  almost hit by this person as he  flew past the stationary school  bus, which had its lights  flashing.  I'm afraid that someone is  going to be seriously hurt and  I'm appealing to that young  man to slow down and pay attention.  Sechelt Seniors  Carpet bowls contests  by Larry Grafton  Our wide carpets and  weighted bowls have had a  reasonable workout in the  course of the last couple of  months, which has resulted in  more bowls being on the carpet  at the end of each frame than  those which are out of play.  That has proven to be an accomplishment for most of us to  the point where we have spread  our wings. A couple of weeks  ago a group from our branch  played a couple of games at  Gibsons against their seniors.  Our players played well and  brought the challenge cup back  with them.  Last week in a return match  at our hall in Sechelt the Gibsons group regained the cup in  very close competition. Everybody enjoyed the afternoon  which finished on a social with  tea and cookies.  In the near future our 'pickup' teams hope to go back to  Gibsons for further congenial  competition.  In the meantime carpet bowling goes on each Monday afternoon at 1:30 pm in our hall.  Come and enjoy yourselves.  ILLNESS  We have missed our first vice-  president at the last few branch  functions due to illness. This  week Gerry Chailler will be at  University Hospital for tests  which we sincerely hope will  alleviate the problem.  In the meantime 'best wishes'  Gerry and we all hope to see  you back with us shortly.  WESTMINSTER QUAY  At press time this bus trip is  within a hair's breadth of being  sold out so it's time for you people with itchy feet to start thinking about where you'd like to go  next.  At the present time May Widman is investigating a trip to the  aquarium and also to Science  World.  An indication of interest in  either or both of these destinations would be appreciated by  May. If you have any suggestions for future trips I'm sure  she will welcome them.  PRESIDENT'S DINNER  Although this event is long  gone those who attended (and  there was a full house) are still  talking about the great effort of  our president John and first  lady Pattie and the great entertainment which was highlighted  by John's brother on the banjo  and ukelele. His versatility  along with the other Millers' accompaniment carried the entertainment nicely.  All this and as much ham and  scalloped potatoes you could   I      *  * Partnership in Town! +  Come in and say Hello to the New Boss  Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and to the  Old One Thursday, Friday or Saturday.  *  20%  AND SAVE *V /U ON  EVERYTHING!  50% I  ON  , ITEMS.  eat certainly proved the evening  a huge success.  THANKS  Our branch extends their  thanks to Maria and Ralph  Maher for their donation of a  roll of paper for our tables. This  time it is pink and adds a little  colour to an otherwise sometimes drab table.  Their   thoughtfulness   in  thinking of us is very much appreciated.  CHANGES  In the event that some of our  members may have missed the  changes that have necessarily  been made to our activity sheet,  please delete the dinner and  entertainment scheduled for  March 31 in the 'special events'  section.  In the 'monthly events' section please make the following  time changes: Aggravation now  at 1 pm; Crib and Whist now at  1 pm; 69ers practice now on  Tuesday from 3 to 4:30 pm.  In the 'committees' section  please replace Mickey Cornwell  on hall maintenance with Stan  Johnson.  WOMEN'S DAY  A potluck dinner is only one  of the attractions as we  celebrate International  Women's Day on Thursday,  March 8 at historic Rockwood  Centre (north wing). The dinner  is at 8 pm and there is a small  fee of $5 per person.  If you would like to find out  more   about   International  Women's Day contact Continuing Education at 885-2991.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, Sechelt branch, is holding  their regular monthly meeting  on Thursday, March 8 at 1:30  pm in St. Hilda's Hall. New  members are always welcome.  If you would like to join one  of our groups or you fancy being a volunteer in Ihe hospital,  please call F.rika Wright at  885-5775.  UGLY TIE  Do you have a tie lurking in  the back of your closet that you  wouldn't be caught dead in?  You can't throw it away  because it was a present from  your mother-in-law and you  don't want to antagonize your  spouse. Well, here's the perfect  answer.  Bring the tie to the Trail Bay  Mall and enter it in the Ugly Tie  Contest. It'll cost you $2 but  I'm sure you're worth it. The  best thing about it is that it's all  in a good cause. All the money  collected will go to the Cystic  Fibrosis Fund.  Drop the tie off at Sew Easy  in the mall and give yourself a  break.  FESTIVAL NEWS  A reminder about two upcoming workshops taking place  at Rockwood Centre.

Sechelt 885-5255  KIDS  Landing merchants  seek local  Improvements  by Dave Fraser  The Gibsons Landing Merchants Association is asking  Gibsons Town Council for a  development variance permit to  widen downtown sidewalks to  provide better pedestrian access  for the proposed Gibsons Quay.  The association is asking for  permission from Gibsons Town  Council to widen sidewalks to  five feel, nine inches to allow  for the building of a canopy  fronting on the Gibsons Quay  block.  Council will consider the request at its regular meeting  Tuesday night. Council is also  requesting the Town be named  as a co-insured on the project to  protect it from lawsuits thai  may result from loss or injury  relating to the project.  The downtown revilalization  project, which will eventually  stretch from Jack's Lane to  Gibsons Marina, includes plans  for street furniture, flower  boxes, a traffic island, a new  museum and maritime park,  new bus stops and trees, a dog  walk and paving stones.  Overhead hydro lines will eventually be moved underground in  stages.  Gibsons Quay consists of 11  businesses, stretching along 200  feet on Gower Point Road.  The Town will receive up lo  20 per cent of the costs of the  overhangs through provincial  downtown revilalization  assistance.  John De Kleer, one of the  principal partners in the Quay  project, would like to see a  pedestrian oriented area in Gibsons where cars will be permitted but forced to slow down.  But De Kleer says a new centre line should be installed on  Gower Point Road in order to  establish a standard width of 24  feet (it currently narrows to as  little as 13-and-a-half feet). This  would give the maximum parking space, as would situating  parking stalls at 90 degrees in  some places.

ODDS AND ENDS  ���Here it is, only 1990, and  the department of highways has  already recognized Pender Harbour with a brand-new sign announcing its existence. Perhaps  its all 'policital' (whatever that  means), but one driving the  Sunshine Coast Highway north  enters Pender Harbour (according to the sign) and almost immediately passes Cordon  Wilson's mailbox.  ���Tourist time, the season  that brings adventurous types  from all over who like to investigate private property, is  almost here. Signs can be effective, but we all know that the  traditional 'No Trespassing'  seldom discourages explorers  from ending up in your  backyard.  You might try one of these,  prefixed by 'Danger': 'Active  Logging'; 'Blasting Ahead'; or  'Quarantine Area'.  ���A rather comprehensive  sailing guide to the Sunshine  Coast has an tr" *,v"rt ��n  'Errington Cove' in Pender  Harbour. I assumed this to be a  typographical error (no pun intended), but had second  thought when I continued  reading and found that the area  was originally known as 'Battle  Bay'. No comment.  ���Rumour from Pender  Dan: There's going to be a  handball court in Garden Bay!  by Dfcde Percy, Igffg  There's a new animal popping up all over town lately. It's  called a 'sold sign'.

There are ideas being tossed  around by some of the more  musically talented locals who  would like to try to start a drop-  in jam session coffee house in  Egmont. They hope to have  something organized for the end  of March or early April.  Keep a lookout on the  bulletin board or this column  for details. In the meantime,  dust off thai old tuba and get  practicing.  The Egmont Lions had their  dinner last Saturday night and,  as usual, it was a roaring success.

The intent of the amending bylaws are as follows:  1.

The program that I envision for  this district would begin in  Kindergarten and continue right  through to graduation, with all  subjects being taught with an  environmental approach.' '  Supreme Housemovers got  no support for its foreshore  lease application to the provincial government from Sechelt  Council's Development and  Community Services Committee at Wednesday's meeting.  The company has applied for  a lease to occupy the shore area  at ihe end of Mason Road in  West Sechelt in order to offload barged houses being moved to the Welcome Woods area  of Halfmoon Bay.  In the Request for Decision,  advantages of the foreshore  lease were the easy access to  Highway 101; an acceptable  off-shore gradient for barge  off-loading; and the proximity  of the off-loading site to the  final placement site of tAe  houses.  Disadvantages included in-  compatability of industrial  transportation in a residential  area; restriction of public access  to the beach; and potential  damage to the clam beds.  "There's essentially two  issues here," explained Planner  Rob Sabine. "One where we're  dealing with the foreshore application and the second issue is  the public complaint of using  the road right-of-way lo  transport these homes."  Staff recommendations included that the foreshore lease  not be supported, that a compromise be made between the  company and residents regarding off-loading hours and  should a compromise not be  possible that council look at bylaw and enforcement options.  "I am opposed to this ap  plication and there are ample  reasons shown, the main one  being thai it is in a residential  area and the off-loading of  barges, which is a commercial  operation, can't be justified in  an R-l zoning," said Alderman  Doug Reid who suggested that  an industrial area such as at the  foot of Field Road be considered by the company.  Mayor Tom Meredith said he  was sympathetic to the area  residents for "the problem they  have with these houses being  transported in the wee hours of  the morning and the noise  associated with it."  The council chambers was  packed with concerned residents  and company representatives,  but the meeting did not allow  for public input.  "We are here today to decide  on a recommendation that will  be sent to council for  approval," explained Committee Chairman Bob Wilson. "At  that time, delegations may be  heard on the issue."  Wilson pointed out that the  committee could only deal wilh  the foreshore application and  that discussion regarding the use  of the beach access road should  be referred to the Committee of  the Whole.  The recommendation will be  voted on at the next Sechelt  Council meeting on Wednesday, March 7.

During  the next two months he works  out a different strategy with his  lawyer. It is obvious that  Wilson must reveal everything  about the hospital irregularities  - no matter what the consequences.  The second trial gets underway on September 12,1938. It is  a much more sensational affair  that will last for over a week  and draw extensive coverage in  the Kingston newspapers.  This time Wilson holds  nothing back. He describes the  Prison Hospital situation in  graphic detail naming Frank  Smith and Guard Noble as coconspirators, both in smuggling  illegal materials into the prison  and in the subsequent frame-up  against him.  "Why do you allege they  tried to frame you?" asks  Crown Attorney T.J. Rigney.  "Because I knew that Smith  had given Guard Noble hospital  supplies and could do with Noble as he pleased," Wilson  testifies.  "So Noble, the guard was the  tool of Frank Smith, the convict?"  "Yes, sir."  Wilson even admits to writing  the letters to the Warden, out of  fear that he would be implicated  in the drug smuggling.  In due course, both Frank  Smith and Guard Noble are  called to the stand and deny  everything. Under cross examination by Wilson's lawyer,  Smith admits having been involved in a Penitentiary riot in  1935. As a result of this he had  been confined in isolation for  2'/i months, received 10 strokes  of the paddle and lost his  Jubilee privileges.  Eventually Warden Allan  himself is called upon to testify.  He admits to receiving the letters from Wilson but stresses  that no irregularities had been  discovered in the Hospital.  At last the jury files out  again. They return within two  hours. Herb Wilson is pronounced 'Not Guilty' on the  morals count.  Wilson has cleared himself of  the homosexual charge, but at a  considerable price. His testimony has incurred the enmity  of many of the inmates- he has  also earned the displeasure of  Warden Allan.  The lurid trial has not only  resulted in no convictions - it  has also put the Prison Administration in a very unfavourable light.  Allan determines to get  Wilson out of his hair. He gets  in touch with the Superintendent of Penitentiaries. On  November 28, 1938, Herb  Wilson is transferred to Prince  Albert Prison in Saskatchewan  'for his own protection'.  Wilson accepts the transfer  with considerable relief. The  situation at Kingston has grown  unendurable. His life is in  danger there.  Prince Albert Penitentiary is  only slightly less grim than  Kingston but it is a welcome  change nonetheless. The  Warden is a shade less inflexible  than Warden Allan and the  discipline is not quite as extreme. Wilson determines to  keep a very low profile and  work out the rest of his time as  painlessly as possible.  Herb Wilson will spend four  years, six months and 22 days at  Prince Albert. It is a far less  traumatic period than the risky  stint at Kingston. Towards the  end of his term however, an  unpleasant possibility arises.  Wilson is informed that he may  be sent back to California as a  parole violator, to serve out the  rest of his sentence at San Quentin.  This prospect is almost too  much for him to contemplate. It  hangs over the final year of his  stay at Prince Albert like a  menacing cloud. At length, to  his extreme relief, the California  authorities decide to waive their  extradition right.  On April 5, 1941, Herb  Wilson is released from jail for  the final time, with exactly  $71.29 in his pocket. He has  spent almost 22 years behind  bars.  h, To be continued...

JOAN WARN  The Arts Centre's Joan Warn  Retrospective ends this coming  Saturday, March 10. When this  show is dismantled and the  work returned to Ihe lenders the  last opportunity to see a collec  tion of her work  on  display may have passed.  At least one of the paintings  will soon follow it's creator  from this world. The 'Mourning  Dove' is one of those frustrating  serendipitous successes with  which all artists are familiar.  Completed in a very few  strokes of the brush and probably undertaken with no great  expectations, much of its beauty  is ironically due to qualities of  the very cheap pulp paper on  which it is executed and  guarantees its rapid disintegration.  The picture shows little of the  tension and excitement so  strongly evident in most of Joan  Warn's work. Perhaps relaxed  by the informality of the poor  quality paper and certainly aided by its absorbency, Joan relinquished much of her control to  achieve a fluid, loosely rendered  image where the dove presides  phoenix-like, alert and unconcerned, in the midst of its own  dissolution.  The doors remain open on  this show from 11 to 4 Wednesday to Saturday, I to 4 Sundays. At 2:30 on Sunday,  March 14 the Arts Centre hosts  a public critique of work submitted from the Associaton of  BC Arts Councils 'Images and  Objects VIII* Juried Regional  Show.  SID you mow...

The early sunny days awaken  our thoughts to our plans for  this year's garden. Some  gardeners may think it  somewhat early to begin a  vegetable garden but now is the  time to prepare the soil.  The perfect soil for vegetables  is loose, fertile and well-  drained. Dig to a depth of 30  centimetres and work in some  agricultural lime or dolomite  lime (follow instructions on  bag).  Many leafy vegetables produce best if planted in early spring with 6-8-6 such as broccoli,  cabbage, chard, cauliflower, lettuce and spinach, as well as root  crops - beetroot, carrots,  onions, parsnips, radish and  turnips.  Potatoes do not like lime  prefering the acid soil with  4-10-10 at base.  Rhubarb, asparagus and artichokes benefit from planting  in the cooler weather.  Remember not to undertake too  much gardening all at once or  backs may suffer.  The Sechelt Garden Club  meeting will be held in St.  Hilda's Hall at 7:30 pm on  March 7. Mr. & Mrs. F. Campbell will show slides of 'Garden  Tours of Victoria' and others of  interest. Everyone welcome.  Children's Fun Fair  planned at Rockwood  Pylons are being replaced currently at the wharf In Halfmoon  Bay. ���Rath Forrester photo  Rhythms  of Life  No pain learning  by Penny Fuller  Perhaps it's true that we have  to get a good look at Hell before  we can truly appreciate Heaven.  It seems to be a common theme  of philosophers. Any number of  them will tell you that the only  way you grow is through strife.  I guess the point is, it's important to hit your own depths  and take a good look around so  you can appreciate how truly  blessed your life is the majority  of the time. A sight-seeing tour  of Hell is all that's required, you  don't have to take up permanent residence, unless of course,  you really like it there.  So this column is only tor  people who have learned from  pain and suffering in their lives.  The rest of you tune in next  week.  It is NOT necessary to suffer  in order to grow and improve  yourself. At least not always.  All it takes is a real belief in that  statement and a commitment to  exploring and living up to your  highest potential, even when circumstances don't force you.  Jupiter is in everyone's natal  chart. I guarantee it was in the  sky somewhere when you were  born and depending on where  that was, there is some area in  your life where you tend to  learn and grow through positive  exploration and an opening up  of yourself.  There are also times when as  it moves through the heavens,  Jupiter indicates just what kind  of experience will be readily  available to you.  Those of you born when the  Sun was in the sign of Cancer  (June 21 to July 22) will find  things going well for you between now and mid-August. It  would be easy to just relax and  enjoy life - a pleasant but self-  indulgent ambition.  On the other hand, if you  choose to use this time to voluntarily undergo a self-improvement regime, maybe the  universe won't have to knock  you on your keester to get you  moving.  Go to workshops. Explore  your more spiritual side. Think  about the criticism that has been  occasionally levelled at you over  the years, don't dismiss it.  You aren't likely to be  devastated by your own imperfections at this time, so it's  an ideal time to root around and  take a clear look at them. You  may or may not choose to  change some aspects of your  behaviour.  If your decision is to break  certain patterns, you'll be able  to do that more painlessly than  at most other times in your life.  Isn't that a better idea than  another visit to the nether  world?  It's never too late to change  your perceptions and your  behaviour. Those born between  June 1914 and August 1938 are  also being afforded the opportunity to make deep internal  changes, in a less stressful way,  perhaps, than has previously  been the case.  Regardless of your birthdate,  any moment of any day, you  have the power to change the  way you learn life's lessons.  You can meet day-to-day  challenges with courage and  dignity, embracing the chance  to test your resourcefulness and  thanking the powers that be for  the opportunity to learn more  about your wonderful ability to  handle difficulties.  You can make a serious effort to learn more about your  weaknesses by attending various  support groups and workshops.  It's all there for you. You just  have to make the decision to use  it. And having chosen to learn  life's lessons without suffering,  you can thumb your nose at  pompous philosophers.  You need not be at a loss  about what to do with your  children on Saturday, March  24, because the Rockwood Centre is staging a day-long  Children's Fun Fair.  March break does not have to  be a boring interlude thanks to  Rockwood's planned activities.  Intended for children from  three to 12 years of age, the Fun  Fair will provide a multitude of  activities and entertainment.  The event begins at II am  and concludes at 3 pm. In those  four hours your kids will have a  great time. Everyone will be  able to have their faces painted;  listen to wonderful story-tellers;  create a work of art in the Imagination Corner; participate in  a 'guess the number of pennies  in the jar contest'; learn all  about plants; listen to live music  provided by Pops and Jean and  Jean Pierre; bash a Mexican  pinata; clothe themselves in the  dress-up corner; and then enjoy  the crazy antics of the Sunshine  Coast's own 'California Raisins'.  All this can be yours for only  one dollar per child, adults are  admitted free.  A day of fun and games  wouldn't be complete without  refreshments. Hot dogs, popcorn, fruit juices and more will  be on sale in Rockwood's dining  room. The organizers request  that all children be accompanied by an adult.  Baby changing rooms will be  available for parents of young  tots. Volunteer help of any kind  would be greatly appreciated.  Interested individuals should  call the Rockwood Centre at  885-2522. Tickets will be sold at  the door so pencil in the  Rockwood Children's Fun Fair  on your calendar for March 24  as an event not to be missed.  Also at Rockwood for the  month of March, is a celebration of the Fabric Arts with a  display of weaving, quilting and  unique wall hangings from  some of the most talented textile  artists on the Coast.  On March 8 there will be a  spinning demonstration in the  North Wing. The public is invited.  Rockwood Cenlre exhibits  are open Monday, Tuesday and  Wednesday from 10 to 4 pm.  Please call ahead for any special  viewing hours, group tours, etc.  and we will try to accommodate  you as much as possible.  25% OFF PRINTS!  ��� Bateman ��� Parker  25% OFF FRAMING!  ��� Conservation Matting ��� Posters  ��� Needlework ��� Original Art Work  ��� Dry Mount ��� Prints  We Can Do h Ail!

From the moment I  stepped inside 1 felt at home, which is hard to explain since I  don't keep glass decanters of sherry by the open fireplace or  have high wooden beams exposed and inviting.  The Creekhouse hospitality is not a hollow cliche. I had to  smile as our hostess repeatedly came by our table to freshen  our drinks and coffee and to enquire about my assieiie de  poissons, a seafood platter of lobster, scallops, oysters,  mussels, prawns and fresh fish with a sauternes bettrre Nunc  and sun-dried tomatoes. She asked "Now, what can I do to  help you with your meal?" I really wanted her to finish what  was on my plate. It was very good, but there was a great deal  of it.  My partner was nodding in unison. It was our belated anniversary dinner and he was trying to make up for forgetting.  He had chosen the noisettes de chevreuil en poivade, a  tenderloin of venison in a tangy wine and pepper marinade.  The crackling fireplace was romantic and conducive to  quiet, solicitous conversation. With the mussels in cream  sauce as an appetizer, salads and hot bread with butter, we  had to pass on the Creekhouse homemade desserts.  The Creekhouse is open Wednesday to Sunday from 6 to  10, reservations recommended. We will certainly return - do  they take reservations a year in advance?

Local buying brings benefits  by Fran Burnside  The next time you make an  evening dash to the 'corner  store' for that necessary item  you've just run out of or  forgot to buy, think about  this: what if there were no  local stores. What if you had  to go to Vancouver for  everything you need.  Now admittedly that is an  unlikely scenario. But local  businesses respond to  customer need and utilization.  They grow and increase their  stock and services according to  demand, and conversely they  wither and close when they are  under-used. It's the classic  case of "use 'em or lose 'em".  Local merchants are well  aware of the competition they  face from Vancouver stores  -and they're more than willing  to meet it head-on if given the  chance. Although ferry and  transportation costs are a local  factor, lower coast overheads  balance the equation and  many local shops are adamant  about the fact that they meet  or beat Vancouver prices.  They'd like you to give them a  chance and see what they've  got to offer before you go into  the  'big  smoke'  and buy.  You'll probably be surprised  at both the prices and the  selection.  The advantages to the consumer of shopping locally go  far beyond the obvious savings  of time, gas and ferry fare.  Local businesses support a  wide number of non-business  related community activities.  Think of all the places  where you see or read business  names. Your son's or  daughter's - or your own  -baseball or hockey uniform  has a sponsor's name on the  back, and that sponsor bought  those uniforms. When your  club has its awards night or  fund-raising raffle, all the  trophies and prizes have been  donated by generous local  business people. Whenever a  non-profit group requires extra funding or assistance,  businesses are the first asked  to make a contribution, and  most of them could cover their  walls with the hand-lettered  "Appreciation Certificates"  they've received to recognize  their efforts.  But getting down to the real  brass tacks, it's in the general  economic health of the Sunshine Coast community that  local businesses make their  Smart Money  Power Smart customers get more  than comfort and convenience.  They save money too.  Whether you are buying a new  appliance, building or renovating  a home, or just replacing a light  bulb, there are Power Smart programs to give you the most comfort and savings from your electricity dollar.  To discover how being Power  Smart can help save you money,  visit our display and meet your  local B.C. Hydro representative  at the Home Show.  885-2211  We Offer  biggest contribution. They  create jobs. They pay full-  time, year-round wages which  support local families and  enable them to live here. They  provide summer jobs for  students so they can stay home  and earn money to continue  their studies.  And they pay local taxes  and contribute to local services, thus helping to upgrade  the general quality of life for  all of us. The larger the local  tax base, the better the services  we receive, and the more of  those "extras" like recreational facilities the community  can afford.  Spending your dollars  where you live is like investing  in yourself. The money comes  back to you in numerous different ways. Local spending  creates what is called "the  multiplier effect", wherein  each dollar does the work of  five or six as it circulates  through the community, being  spent again and again for different products and services,  becoming the vital "cash  flow" which keeps businesses  healthy and growing. The  more cash flow a business has,  the more it can increase its  stock and provide wider selection and service, a side effect  of which is often hiring more  staff, which means more people working and having money  to spend, supporting more  local businesses, which  pay  more local taxes and contribute more to the community, etc., so the circle expands  and the community's  economic health keeps getting  better and better.  Competitive prices are just  one of the advantages of dealing with the shop down the  street. When you want service  or repairs, your local business  is close by, right there when  you need it. The local service  man can come to you; you  don't have to take your  washer to him. And he's your  neighbour. He knows his  reputation rests with what you  tell your - and his -friends  about his work. He can't afford in a small community to  have dissatisfied customers, so  he'll give you service above  and beyond what you'd get  from an impersonal 'big city'  company as just another  anonymous customer. He  needs and wants you to come  back to him the next time, and  he'll give you the kind of work  which will make you do so.  Besides, he wants to be able to  look you in the eye and get a  smile back the next time he  meets you on the golf course  or at the Scout rally.  Shop locally and support  local businesses. If you want  them to be there with what  you need when you need it,  use their services regularly so  you'll have the choice.

Coast News, March 5,1990  ���IllMMWwttcr* J+& -TMlsTLE  Liz Mitten-Ryan visits Home Show  A native of Vancouver, Liz Mitten's art training began at  Heatherley's School of Fine Art in London, England, followed  by Mechanical Drafting at Can-Car Pacific, and Architectural  Drafting, Perspective, and Design with A.R. Teal and Associates. Liz then went on to study Arts at the University of British  Columbia, also taking technique and colour courses from Peter  Aspell, formerly the senior instructor at the Vancouver School  of Art.  Mitten has studied inlormally in Europe, and most recently  on B.C.'s West Coast, resulting in the colour and subject ot her  latest works.  Liz has shown privately, and through an agent, in the United  Kingdom, Switzerland, and Italy, as well as Vancouver and  Seattle. Her works have also been exhibited publicly at the  University ot British Columbia's Faculty Club, The Vancouver  Home Show, Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, B.C. Wildlife Federation and the Danish Art Gallery.  Liz Mitten-Ryan will be at the Upstairs Downstairs Shoppe 2 to 4 pm  March 8,9 and 10 to autograph her Art Cards in exchange for a donation  to the Cystic Fibrosis campaign.  Several original paintings will be on display at the Upstairs  Downstairs Shoppe and Cactus Flower Fashions.  Coast business on the rise  by Dave Fraser  The home show at Trail Bay  Centre Mall on March 8, 9 and  10 is a real shot in the arm for  local businesses, especially those  involved in the building trades.  The second annual event will  show residents that local  businesses can provide home  improvement items and services  that are as good a quality, and  often cheaper, than in the city.  Bruce Morris of Trail Bay  Developments says 30 booths  filled up the mall during last  year's home show. He says at  least one exhibitor, a prefab  home builder, attributed a very  busy year to his display at last  year's show.  In Gibsons 1989 was a brisk  year for commercial activity.  Building permits for commercial buildings and additions  amounted to $1.4 million. The  first two months of this year  saw almost $254,000 worth of  commercial permits approved  by the Gibsons building inspector.  An example of the burgeoning commercial development in  Gibsons is the new 50-unit  motel and restaurant, which will  soon begin construction at a site  next to the curling rink.  Dennis Hohn, who has owned Sunshine Lodge since 1984,  says his new building will include a swimming pool and hot  tub and should be completed by  the Labour Day weekend. It is  being designed by the Coast Architectural Group.  In 1989 the District of Sechelt  approved over $1 million in new  commercial buildings and  $413,000 worth of commercial  renovations. That was a considerable increase over $587,520  worth of permits approved in  1988.  Commercial expansion in  Sechelt remained strong during  the first two months of 1990,  with over $65,000 worth of  commercial permits approved.  The Trail Bay Centre Mall is  expanding by 5000 feet to accommodate increasing demands  for retail space. This will be ac  complished by pushing out the  north side of the mall by 20 feet,  and shuffling tenants around inside the mall, says Morris.  Pharmasave will undergo the  biggest expansion, with an additional 2500 square feet, while  Radio Shack, Mitten Realty and  Sunshine Coast Insurance  Agencies will also get more  floor space. Two new businesses  will also open in the mall when  renovations are complete.  Spending money on the  Coast has a multiplier effect,  Morris says. "It means  businesses can bring in more  stock and give local buyers  more choices."  He says having two, three or  four businesses offering the  same item can encourage local  residents to spend their money  here. As an analogy, Morris  cites new auto malls on the  Lower Mainland with several  dealerships under one roof.  Because competition is fiercer,  consumers are more likely to go  there because they feel they are  getting a better deal.  "Competition is good. It  forces businesses to provide  superior products and superior  'services at cheaper prices."

In the preceding months  much has been said regarding  my role in the Farrington Cove  matter. Not wishing to add to  the furour and being a  somewhat patient man, I have  long awaited the decision of the  Supreme Court to vindicate my  conduct in this matter and was  not disappointed.  I note that you too, Mr.  Editor, viewed this entire matter  with a jaundiced eye but now  that it has been laid to rest,  buried wc hope, 1 would like in  fairness to Mr. Gordon Wilson  and Mr. and Mrs. Howatt, and  in fairness to myself, to shed  some light on this entire matter.  For the record, my first involvement with the Area Planning Commission (APC) was  when 1 attended a meeting on  January 25, 1988 at the written  request of Mr. Gordon Wilson  who wanted me to assist in its  decisions, given my lengthy experience both as a resident of  the area and as a realtor. Incidentally, at this time Mr.  Howatt was also asked to join  the APC.  At that time, the Farrington  Cove zoning had already been  established to be 100 units or so  everybody intended. I had in my  possession and still have, a letter  from Geoff Power dated July  IS, 1987 stating:  "This is to inform you that  the by-law amendments concerning the above noted property  (Farrington Cove) were given  final reading at the regular  board meeting of July 9, 1987.  The above noted lands are now  zoned RM-I and 0."  In other words the Farrington  Cove property was zoned for  100 units and we had been so  advised by Geoff Power on  Sunshine Coast Regional  District letterhead, a long time  before either Howatt or myself  ever became involved with the  APC.  There was therefore no  possibility at that point in time  of my being in any sort of conflict of interest position.  In time, as a realtor, I sold  the property on behalf of the  Howatts.  The new purchasers, almost  two years after Farrington Cove  had been zoned for 100 units,  were advised in May 1989 that  there was some doubt as to  whether the land was zoned for  100 units or only 86 units.  Shortly after being advised of  this problem, and learning that  the matter was going to be  discussed at the APC, Howatt  and I both resigned by advising  Mr. Wilson.  Never at any time was I present at any meeting of the APC  when the matter was discussed.  Further, the error regarding  the zoning figures of either 86  units or 100 units was resolved  without my influence being exerted at any time or in any way  either directly or indirectly to  the planning commission or  otherwise.  Board members frequently  find themselved in conflict positions. It happens every day in  partnerships, companies, councils and governments. All  anyone can reasonably ask for,  that if there is any thought of  conflict of interest, then one  should either remove themselves  from any discussion on the matter or resign. In this case, given  the publicity the matter was attracting, we thought it was in  everyone's best interest to  remove any possibility of conflict, and, accordingly we  resigned.  As a proud and happy resident of this area for over 20  years, 1 consider it my duty to  assist in regional affairs, it is my  duty as a resident, my duty as a  citizen and my duty as a realtor.  All may rest assured however  that I never have ncr ever will  function in a conflict position.

Dear Lyn Vernon:  A copy of your letter of  February 6 has finally made its  way to me. I don't know  whether or not it has already  run in the paper but my wife  says I would be chicken to not  answer you directly anyway. So  1 will, although reluctantly.  For one thing I have no idea  whether your group gave rise to  the letter.  More to the point, the column in question was not intended as a criticism of whatever  group it was, but a reflection  upon the habits and customs of  the Downwind Tracker relative  to music, literature, religion and  government.  He was the one put forward  for readers' amusement. The  column combined letters from  two different people, received  during the last three months and  my guess is that both were fictional in large part although I  suppose letter writers, like  novelists, use some event as a  peg on which to hang their imagination.  On second thought 1 think 1  should have realized that there  might be enough fact mixed in  such letters as to give needless  offence to some people who  think themselves identified  there. I'm sorry and will take  more care in future.  Paul St. Pierre  Vancouver Sun Newspaper  Mainil's concern  Editor:  I am very concerned about  the Gospel Rock area and hope  that the mayor and council will  do all they can to preserve this  beautiful place. The Official  Community Plan of the Town  of Gibsons says, "Gospel  Rock's predominantly southeasterly aspects offers one of the  finest viewpoints in the Pacific  Northwest, and its arbutus-lined  waterfrontage and slopes invite  the preservation of the maximum land area for public use."  The plan continues by  slating, "...therefore the acquisition of a substantial area of  parkland as condition of  development of the adjacent upper plateau may be feasible in  the future. With this in mind,  high priority must be given to  the obtaining of as much of the  Gospel Rock waterfront as  possible, in addition to an area  of parkland at the peak of the  promontory which could serve  as the site of an eventual  lookout."  We would hope thai Ihe  mayor and council will do all  they can to adhere to the community plan. The plan is quite  explicit in many other ways,  specifically stating that conventional subdivision design be  discouraged and substituted by  "...clustering of development  where terrain permits, with Ihe  community at large benefitting  from the acquisition of more  significant areas of parkland."  There is also a policy remarking  that "...destruction of tree  cover in new areas of development shall be minimized."  I trust thai Ihe mayor and  council will follow this community plan and not give in to  the more conventional and  destructive ideas of the  'developer', which would mean  Police  News  SECHELT RCMP  On February 26 four rolls of  copper wire were stolen from a  construction site near Highway  101 and the south end of  Redrooffs Road.

Coast News, March 5,1990  Ratepayers express support  Former trustee questions  Editor's Note: The following,  was received for publication.  School District 46  Gibsons, B.C.  Dear Madam Chairman:  I am writing to you as a  former board member concerning the recent announcement of  the changes in the French Immersion program in this district.  My concern is with the process that was used to make this  decision. That process should  have been clearly visible and  should have been perceived as  fair. Your board's accountability to the public it serves is in  serious question.  1 am referring to the ministry  policy circular #38 dated July 8,  1987 where it states 'districts  must give at least one year's  notice to parents to permit full  discussion of any changes...' I  understand that you reaffirmed  the policy that the board of past  years had established in June of  last year.  That would have been the  time to give everyone involved  their notice of any forthcoming  changes that were to be proposed.  I am requesting that you respond to my concerns as to the  process that was used by your  board in making this decision.  As a former board member I  am certain that local policies  and regulations were developed  that were consistent with the  RE: Future of the Tetrahedron  Plateau  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Barry Mountain  District Forrester  Sunshine Coast Forest District  On March 2, 1990, the 150  member Sechelt Marsh Protective Society passed the following  ministry policy.  These were developed to ensure delivery of effective French  Immersion programs. Did the  board overlook their own policy  and regulations? How are these  changes happening so fast?  Wily have the parents of these  students not had a chance to  provide input or discuss this  with the board? Has the policy  for changing policy changed?  1 would appreciate some  answers to these questions.  Janice Edmonds  Editor:  We, the undersigned members of the Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association  wish to correct a number of factual errors which have been appearing in the local papers  about our organization.  First, it was reported in the  Coast News February 26 that  the executive is not elected. This  is simply incorrect. As reported  in the press at the time, they  were duly elected at a general  meeting held in the old ranger  station last year and they will  not be up for re-election until  later this year.

Our membership has reacted  with great concern to the news  that the Ministry of Forests has  decided to proceed with the logging of approximately 60 hectares in the Bachelor and Edwards Lake area of the Tetrahedron Plateau.  We will be consulting with  the BC Federation of Naturalists (of which we are a  member club) and our locally  elected members of government.  The Sechelt Marsh  Protective Society  tion of demanding quality planning and zoning for Area A,  with a proper community plan  being done first and a zoning  by-law following later is not a  private obsession of the president and vice-president, but a  resolution of the general  membership which was passed  with overwhelming support at  our last general meeting.  The vast majority of us who  attended that meeting and  listened to arguments from the  regional director among others  voted to instruct the executive to  demand the best for Area A and  not settle for a set of zoning  restrictions devised basically by  regional planners with some  fine tuning done by an appointed local committee.  Some of the important points  were that the new by-law does  not include information on such  basic planning facts as how  much the harbour can be built  up before we have to put in a  multi-million dollar sewer  system or before we run out of  drinking water, and that the  new by-law does not control  developments like Farrington  Cove because it creates legal  zones that would facilitate more  of them.  We cannot overlook the fact  that Director Wilson gave his  word to 1 SO people assembled at  our meeting that if we voted to  shelve the proposed new regional district by-law in favour of  the community plan approach,  he would direct the regional  board to follow our wishes,  then he proceeded with the bylaw as if nothing had been said.  We have seen nothing to  make us change the position we  took at our mass meeting and  we very much resent the im-  plciation continually made by  the regional district, by  members of the local by-law  committee and by Director  Wilson that our opinion does  not count.  Our executive is doing  precisely what we instructed  them to do and we support  them fully.  Pender Ratepayers  Editor's Note: Twenty-five signatures accompanied this letter.

Coast News, March 5,1990  for Sechelt Chamber  Liberal leader outlines views  by Caryl Worden  J The Sunshine Coasl should  jiave a 'one-government  lystem', according to Gordon  Wilson.  i The Meech Lake Accord is  ttausing 'creeping regressive-  liess', and the present form of  Education taxation is 'unfair  )nd discriminatory'.  1 Wearing his BC Liberal  leader's hat Tuesday night,  JVilson spoke out on a wide  lange of issues as guest speaker  at  a dinner  for the annual  Seneral meeting of the Sechelt  nd District Chamber of Commerce.  I Following a beet and chicken  lul'fct dinner at the Casa Marine? Restaurant, chamber  members and guests, including  SCRD Board Chairman Peggy  fonnor, Sechell Alderman  poug Reid and the multi-titled  Jtan Dixon, watched as the new  chamber executive was sworn  in.  !: Wilson then opened his  tieech by tracing his involvement in the Liberal party and  defining his views of Liberalism  tjeforc tackling specific issues.  ;| On the national level, he attacked the Meech Lake Accord  faying it causes a "creeping  iftgressiveness, that balkanizes  Canada into 10 indendent states  :fnd essentially creates disharmony and an unequal situation  iji Canada."  i Wilson feels that the whole  ijrenph-English debate is preoc-  otipying Canadians too much.  ')| support French Immersion  irogams," he said. "I think  ley should be accessible and  available from Kindergarten to  the senior grades. But there are  much, much bigger issues,  much more important questions  lhat need lo be addressed."  '; Wilson sees the major issues  to be looked at is the major  gjjobal migration in the upcoming decades, and lhat since one  of Canada's prime assets is the  ainouni of livable space, we'll  have lo be prepared to meet the  demand.  ; "If we do not build a political  and social system which is  tolerant of divulgent cultures,  we ajs,ui Jflr_.a,yery rqughjide,"  hejpredicted.  Wilson  finds our language  debates ironic in view of world  events such as the Berlin Wall  coming down, communist  countries restructuring and  South African apartheid  disintegrating.  In addressing concern over  the recent federal budget,  Wilson was quick to clarify that  Michael Wilson, the federal  finance minister was no relation  lo him.  The BC minister of Finance's  outrage at the cut to provincial  payments was unjustified,  Wilson feels, since the provincial government has done the  same thing to municipal governments for years.  Wilson said that the Liberals  will soon release a paper detailing their ideas for an amendment to the government spending system.  He continued that a ministry  of community development  would then be established to integrate social services, health  care and educational services at  the community level. "The base  funding available to those sections would be established as a  pro forma part of the budgeting  process. In other words, they  become the first priority in the  budgeting process."  He added that taxation for  education would be removed as  an isolated property tax, a  method he called 'unfair and  discriminatory'.  On the local scene, Wilson  lauded the Sunshine Coast as  unique in that it is a 'community of communities' with  numerous assets and potential  such as the lakes and rivers, the  Tetrahedron recreation area,  the Sechelt Inlet system, and a  manageable forest sector.  "But we have to make sure  that we manage the growth that  is going to occur, and I think we  are going to see a tremendous  amount of growth on the Sunshine Coast in the next five to 10  years," said Wilson.  He believes the first management step concerns transportation. "If we're going to have the  capacity to bring more people  onto the Coast, we have to have  a highway that is going to accommodate them," he said.  "There is nqjJQtnt.jnJbrjnging ���  on a larger ferry service to be  able to get more people onto ���  Gordon Wilson, wearing his BC Liberal Party Leader hat, addressed the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce last week.

With passing reference to his  Area A Director's role in the  SCRD, Wilson said: "We also  have to examine the kinds of  by-laws and community plans  we have in place that are going  to address a broader variety of  land uses." One move already  taken in this direction is the  Hillside project, which he praised as a solid step towards having a managed plan for industrial development.  Wilson also sees a need to  redefine the delivery of government at all levels, starting with  the Sunshine Coast.  "There's roughly 18,000 people on the Sunshine Coast. And  18,000 people need three  governments to look after them?  You want to know where to cut  money? We need to look  toward the elimination of  duplication of government services, and if that means going to  a single government here, then  maybe that's what we have to  do."  When asked by Sechelt  Alderman Doug Reid what  specific route could be taken to  implement this, Wilson said:  "Well, 1 didn't really come  prepared to sell the notion of a  one-government system, but it  seems there has to be a  mechanism to be able to have  simpler, better government  delivery on the Coast." He added that a regionally based ward  system or elected representatives  from existing regions but under  a single government are both  options.  "1 think, right now though,  we could sign a cooperative pact  to share a lot of services and  reduce duplication. The real  problem with having these independent jurisdictions is that  they develop a sense of petty  jealousies or little fiefdoms,"  Wilson said.  836 0*ShM Rd..
