 Th          Legislalive Library  1^/MfM+nl  Doard Chairman  __W  Parliament Buildings  88.1  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  t finally gets the facts  Hospital Board Chairman Tom Meredith makes a poinl at Sunday's public information meeting in  Sechell. ���John Burnslde pholg  hy John Burnside  Approximalely 80 people  came oul on a sunny afternoon  last Sunday in Sechelt, to gel Ihe  fads on the proposed gravel extraction from Crown land adjacent to Sechelt, by Sechelt Aggregates Lid. and the Sechelt Indian Band. The facts they came  to hear, came primarily from  the chairman of the Hospital  Hoard, Tom Meredith.  Chairman Bud Koch opened  the meeling:  "As elected officials," said  Sechelt's mayor, "we have lo be  ready for the worst-case  scenario or you will tell us we  arc not doing our jobs."  Koch traced the beginning of  the project in 1983 which  started as gravel extraction from  Indian land.  "That project had a five-year  life expectancy," said Koch.  "We became concerned when  we learned thai a much bigger  project was in the works. Our  primary concern was the  hospilal. Unlil 10 days ago we  had no information. Now we  have learned that the primary  crushing site is further away  from the hospital than we had  thought. Secondary crushers  will be in a hollow 400 metres  from Ihe hospilal. If ihey leave  a berm up Ihere, there should  not be too much of a problem."  Sechell's mayor acknowledged lhal his presenl reaction was  nol as strong as his original  reaction.  Hospilal Board Chairman  Tom Meredith told the meeling  that afler a hospilal board  meeling lasl week, he decided lo  find oul what he could. He  phoned S.A. Roike, vice-president of Sechell Aggregates and  caught the 10:30 ferry the next  morning and went into the  firm's offices in Vancouver.  "My chief concerns were for  sound and dust," said  Meredith. "As a consequence  of my visit wilh Mr. Roike 1 am  satisfied thai Sechell Aggregates  will be good corporate  citizens."  Meredith said lhal Ihe secondary crushing plant will cause  no problem for the hospital. "It  is 450 metres away in a hollow,  and stockpiled gravel and intervening trees will be a buffer.  Acoustical engineers assure that  sound will nol be a problem."  On the question of dust,  Meredith told the meeting thai  all gravel conveyed would be  conveyed after washing and that  there would be no dust.  "If, despite the washing,  there were dusl the prevailing  winds either from Ihe south east  or ihe south west would blow it  away from the hospital in any  case," said Meredith.  The Hospital Board chairman also confirmed whal has  been reported by this  newspaper, thai the conveyor  system would be ditched and  Covered and would be under  bolh Ihe utility corridor and Ihe  highway.  Meredith also addressed Ihe  question of Ihe docking system  lor loading Ihe gravel.  "It will not be visible from  the residences in Selma Park. In  fad it will nol be visible to any  residences except Indian Band  Please turn lo page 17  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25' per copy on news stands     February 29,1988     Volume 42      Issue 9  Pilot George Pohl escaped wilh only a bump on Ihe head when his Cessna 180 did an inverted dive inlo  Ihe waters of Halfmoon Bay lasl Saturday. His plane was not so lucky. -Vera Ellloii ph   Committee says trees aren't here  Timber cut objection  Although the provincial  governmenl has recently announced that the allowable  limber harvest in the Small  Business Program will be doubled, the Forestry Advisory Committee of Ihe regional dislricl  says the limber is jusi not  available in this area. Al the lasl  mcciing of the committee,  Batty Cuslance of Ihe local  Forestry office told members  lhal the annual cul in Ihis area  needs io be reduced, rather than  incleased.  "We've been trying lo Identify limber for all the companies  for the nexl 20 years," he said,  "and we can't even Identify  enough lor 15."  Later in the discussion, he  elaborated, "If we could drop ii  down right now, we could sustain a cul for up to 25 years."  35,(XX) cubic meters should  come off per yeai, he explained,  bul the increased culling allowed for small operations in this  area has now been sel al 100,000  cubic meters per year. In addition to that, is the logging that is  done by ihe major companies  such as Canfor and MacMillau  Bloedel,  Chairman Tim Clement commented, "From the poinl of  view of Ihis committee we'd  rather not see Mount  Elphinstone logged off In the  nexl 10 years."  Dave Blackwell agreed. "If  the   visible   face   of   Mount  Elphinstone Is logged off too  fast you're going to have a vast  public outcry, Thai's why Ihe  longlerni culling program dial's  111 place should be endorsed."  The culling program which  Ihe local forestry office has submitted lo Ihe provincial governmenl provides for a reduced annual cul In Ihis area, which  would ensure steady employment for the logging industry  over the nexl 25 years, and a  self-renewing limber supply.  Committee members also expressed concern thai if the large  limber is removed too rapidly,  Ihe pressure will be put on the  younger forest, Dave Bakewell  pointed oul, "Therefore il will  liquidate, much faster, the immature stands and negales ihe  longlerni benefits of whal Ihe  forest service docs now."  The committee will be writing  a Idler to ihe Minister of  Forests and Lands, endorsing  the current forest managemeni  plan.  Duffy prepares  Boxer Tony Duffy continues his quesl for a place on ihe  Canadian Olympic team at the Summer Olympics in Seoul.  South Korea wilh some training sessions and a sparring exhibition ihis week wilh Canadian Featherweight Champion  Tony Pep.  The sparring exhibition, scheduled for Elphie's Cabaret al  7 pm, Wednesday, March 2, is a. fundraiser for Ihe Sunshine  Coasl Boxing Association, Inlormalion is lhal the tickets arc  almost gone. Details of ticket outlets appear on Page 10 of  this week's newspaper.  Lasl week in Taeoma, Washington, Duffy finally incl up  with the opponent he must beat in the Canadian finals for a  spot on the Olympic team. He lost a controversial splil decision but came oul of the contest with renewed confidence.  The boul with Manny Sobrei was a preliminary match on  the Taeoma card and was consequently just three two-minute  rounds. Both Duffy and his coach Barry Krangle fell lhal  Duffy would have won had the rounds been three minutes  long.  The training sessions with Tony Pep, ranked 10th in Ihe  world in his professional weight division, should go a long  way towards preparing Duffy for his next meeting wilh  Sobrei.  Licence to be needed  Chinook lack debated  by Rose Nicholson  Bill Olway, ombudsman to  Tom Sidden, Minisler of  Fisheries, spoke to a well attended meeting called by the  Sechelt Peninsula Rod and Gun  Club Sporl Fishing Advisory  Committee lasl Monday nighl.  Olway claimed lhal fishing  regulations for ihe coming year  will be essentially Ihe same as  lasl year, excepl lor one change.  Spori fishermen will be issued  lags, al SI each, for chinook  salmon.  However, a cheek wilh local  Fisheries officer Randy Tancock disclosed that he has had  no official noli Ileal ion of planned regulations for 1988. "I  would hope thai there are some  changes," he said, "we sure  need something,"  The meeling, attended by  both commercial and sports  fishermen, was an attempt lo  find sonic solutions lo the  drastic decline in ihe number of  chinook salmon lhal has occurred in Ihe Gulf of Georgia in ihe  lasl decade. A filly percenl  reduction in six years lias forced  fishermen lo face the lad thai a  resource which was always considered unlimited has, in fad,  conic close lo extinction.  Although over-fishing is undoubtedly the main cause of the  problem, il appears lhal Ihere  are olher factors io consider. In  Ihe last few years there has been  a sharp increase in the seals that  prey on the salmon. Al I he same  lime herring slocks, the main  source of feed, have declined  drastically. Roc herring, once  common in the Gulf, have virtually disappeared, leaving only  a smaller species. Jim Cameron,  a veteran fisherman from  Pender Harbour, claims lhal  lighl al night from increased  human habitation has altered  the migration patterns of the  larger herring and they no  longer spawn in Ihe Gulf as Ihey  used lo.  Dogfish, another salmon  predator, have also increased  and for the lasl three years there  have been low water levels in the  creeks at spawning lime. The  only solualion lo that, said one  wit, was to 'pray for rain'.  Discussing Ihe seals, Olway  reported lhat Ihe Minisler had  declared that il would be  political suicide for him to order  destruction ofthc seals. "If you  wanl to gel rid of ihe seals,"  said Olway, "you have lo write  letters. Thai's ihe only ihing  that will make him change his  mind."  The Salmonld Enhancement  Program was discussed by  Oranl McBain and Rick  Schmidt.    McBain   said   that  all hough Ihere has been a huge  cul in funding for Fisheries in  Ihe lasl Iwo years, ihe budgel  for enhancement has actually  been increased. McBain poinled  oul lhal Ihe main work in Ihis  area is being done by  volunteers, bul iheir efforts are  chiefly concerned wilh coho and  chums.  There are no natural chinook  streams on the Sunshine Coasl,  although an attempt is being  made to seed ihem in some local  streams. The Sechell Indian  Band Halchery has released  chinook inlo Sechelt Inlet and  so far Ihis seems to be working.  Two olher possible solutions  were suggested al ihe meeling.  Cliff Connor advocated a  return to light tackle, using no  more than a four and a half  ounce lead weight on a rod.  "Lei's get back to real sports  fishing," he said, "dragging a  len pound cannon ball isn'l  sporl."  Anolher suggestion was lhat  the use of barhlcss hooks would  cut down on the morialiiy of  grilse (immature salmon).  Olway concluded by saying  "The Minisler wanls io hear  your concerns. He couldn't be  al this meeting because you  didn't give him enough lime.  Bin schedule a meeling for Mayor June and he'll be here."  EDC crawls into closet  Alter consulting Neil Goldic  al Ihe Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Ihe Coasl News has decided to follow (ioldie's suggestion  and send a formal protest to Ihe  Sunshine Coasl Regional  District (SCRD) regarding a  policy decision made recently by  Ihe Economic Developmeni  Commission (EDC) lo ban the  public from its meetings.  The minutes of a closed  meeling, held by the EDC on  February 19, were received at  lasl week's meeling of the  board. These Indicate lhal a  motion by Art Giroux,  representing the aquaculture industry, seconded by director  Jim Gurney read, 'Thai  meetings of the Economic  Developmeni Commission be  closed due lo the sensitive  nature of properly and personnel mailers coming before Ihe  Commission. The Economic  Developmeni Commission,  however, will hold periodic  public information meetings.'  Upon receipt of the minutes  at the SCRD board meeling,  Area A director Gordon Wilson  objeded to Ihe policy calling il  'highly political', and asked the  board to support a motion  allowing ihe public lo attend  EDC meetings, with sensitive  issues being handled in brief, in-  camera sessions. The motion  was seconded by Area E alternate Tony Layer but defeated  by the rest of ihe board.  The policy appeals lo fly in  the face of recommendations  made bv Ted Senimens in a  $9,800 reporl lo Ihe SCRD on  ways lo improve the Economic  Developmeni Commission. The  report, which was presented lo  Ihe EDC on November 26,  1987, specifically staled, "Since  the citizens of the region are  contributing lo Ihe SCRD's funding of the Cenlre, (Economic  Development Centre) there  needs lo be strong accountability to these citizens through the  SCRD board."  Eight recommendations  followed which Senimens fell  would achieve lhal accountability  without   reducing  the  flexibility and effectiveness of  the commission. One of those  recommendations was, "The  EDO (Economic Officer of the  Commission) and the Centre's  Board (the EDO should meel  monthly lo review projects,  budget performance and  results. The meetings should be  open to the public. When  specific firms or organizations  are to be discussed, thai portion  of Ihe meeting should be held  in-camcra."  When Ihe issue was broughl  up on Thursday nighl, members  of the press expressed their opposition lo the decision vocally.  Bul Ihe only response from the  SCRD's representative on the  commission, Jim Gurney, was a  shrug and a smile. "Too bad,"  he said.  When contacted Ihe nexl day  for further clarification, Gurney  lold the Coast News lhal ihe  decision had been made in an  effort lo "de-politicize" the  EDC.  Please turn lo page 17  Serving the Sunshine Coast ^ince 194$ Coast News, February 29,1988  Comment  A lamentable  decision  The decision made by the Regional Board to approve  recommendation from the Economic Development Commission that its meeting be held in camera is profoundly  regrettable and ill-advised. More than that, it can be  argued that it is also irrational, cowardly and possibly illegal.  It is irrational because the difficulties that the EDC has  had with unfair press coverage comes from a source which  does not attend regular EDC meetings. Closing the  meetings to both newspapers is unlikely therefore to improve the situation.  It is cowardly because of the failure to address the problem directly. Privately, commission members and  regional directors assure us that they find our attendance  at meetings faithful and our reporting of them fair and  honourable, bul take refuge in a blanket condemnation  when ihey speak of unfairness.  Il is possibly illegal because the commission spends a  considerable sum of the taxpayers' money each year and  the decisions as to how that money is to be spent are now  lo be made in secret meetings.  This is a bad decision which should be reversed as soon  as possible.  Lest we be accused of the blanket condemnation of  which we complain, commission members present at an in  camera meeting which made the recommendation were  Bryan Rubin, Bonny Paetkau, Bruce Moseley, Art  Giroux, and Regional Director Jim Gurney.  Voting in favour of accepting the recommendation were  Regional Directors McGillivray, Gurney and Dixon, with  Laver and Wilson opposing.  Voice of reason  The voice of reason was heard in Sechelt on Sunday  afternoon and we are largely indebted to Hospital Board  Chairman Tom Meredith for helping that to happen.  We, too, take a measure of pride in speaking for reason  and against hysteria on this issue. The facts support our  consistent pleas for informed reason to prevail.  5 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Indian Band elections have resulted In  the election of Stanley Joe as Chief.  A possible worst case scenario for a propane explosion in Roberts Creek was outlined at the meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District Board by Area Director Brett McGillivray. In discussing his concerns regarding the propane tanks in Roberts Creek, McGillivray  described what would happen in the event of a 'boiling  liquid expanding vapour explosion' (BLEVE). He said  that experiences In Arizona and Spain indicate that  propane tanks the size of those in Roberts Creek would,  if a BLEVE occurred, create an explosion that would  destroy an area ol one-half mile radius.  10 YEARS AGO  Long-time Sunshine Coast resident and Coast News  columnist Peter Trower will appear on national television  on the Peter Gzowski show. Appearing with Poet Trower  will be local musicians Ken Dalgleish and Michael Dunn.  15 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek Community Association at Its  February meeting, has decided to try to prevent the area  from becoming an asphalt jungle. The first step in this  direction was to pass a motion in favour of prohibiting  further subdivision into lots smaller than 18,000 square  feet.  20 YEARS AGO  Who is this man Trudeau? What does he stand for?  And why his sudden popularity? These are among the  questions which delegates to the Liberal leadership  convention will be asking themselves as they go about  electing the next Prime Minister of Canada.  25 YEARS AGO  Continued progress has been made in the planning  for the new St. Mary's Hospital. The construction committee has now studied thoroughly, the x-ray, laundry,  and kitchen equipment. In addition, specifications are  being prepared to cover the remainder of the hospital  equipment.  30 YEARS AGO'  Four candidates have been nominated to run in Coast  Capilano constituency for the federal election and they  are: James Sinclair, sitting Liberal member; WH Payne,  Conservative; Hugh Clifford, CCF; and Edward Gallant,  Social Credit.  35 YEARS AGO  Representatives from the Howe Sound Farmers' Institute were present at the regular Gibsons Village Commission to inquire as to the possibility of the commission Inaugurating some traltic regulations that would  permit their members having some parking facilities  when they come to the village on business.  40 YEARS AGO  All Indications point to a continued and healthy  growth In Sechelt.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year 135; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year MO   A silver heroine  for Canada  In each Olympics it seems  that an individual rises from  among the assemblage of gifted  athletes and through a combination of circumstances linked to  a timely display of unquestionable ability fashions the  story by which the Games are  remembered.  Each time the reporters of the  various disciplines are on the  alert to identify that individual  as early in the course of the  Games as possible, or if possible  long before the Games begin.  In the best of years the individual who stamps their personal mark comes entirely unexpected to the centre of the  Olympic stage and from this  perspective it seems lhat this  was such a year.  There were skiers who were  going to make the Games theirs;  there was the unlikely hope of a  'miracle on ice', which dream  saw the undermanned Canadian  hockey team or the USA's  gallant college players sweeping  all before them and especially  the awesome might of the Soviet  hockey team.  In the final analysis it was a  petite blonde bundle of nerves  from Ottawa who fashioned the  best story of these Olympic  Games.  That Elizabeth Manley is a  great skater no one doubted.  Her history has been a history  of letting down in major competitions, however, and no one  took her very seriously in the  glamourous and highly competitive world of ladies' figure  skating.  The attention throughout and  before the games was on the  coming showdown between  Katarina Witt, the gorgeous and  sexy champion of the 1984  Winter Olympics from East  Germany and America's first  coloured skating star, Debbie  Thomas from San Jose,  California.  The confrontation had all the  hallmarks of your classic  capitalism versus communism  confrontation. Reporters and  cameramen hung on every word  issued from the mouths of the  queenly Witt and the ail-  American coloured girl who was  as bright as she was beautiful.  They followed the rivals even  through backstage warm-ups.  So, on Saturday night in the  Saddledome in Calgary the  hyper little blonde from Ottawa  came out under pressure and  skated rings around both her  highly touted rivals. Witt, the  reigning   champion   knowing  that reigning champions have to  be defeated clearly to lose their  crowns, skated conservatively  taking no chances and running  no risks.  Thomas who earlier in the  week had made a scathing comment about how Manley always  choked under pressure, faltered  badly and made several agonizing errors.  The little lady from Ottawa  skated with daring and exuberance, with enthusiasm and  a sense of humour and upstaged  both her rivals. One knowledgeable commentator  made  the  point after the contest that had  Thomas skated a little better  than she did Manley could just  as easily have had the gold in  the composite marks of the  three-part contest.  To no one in the Saddledome  or watching on television did it  make a great deal of difference.  The spunk and panache of the  overlooked Canadian brought  tears to eyes 'unused to flow'  and stamped her as the heroine  of these Olympic Games. No  one who saw her performance  will ever forget it.

Robert Herrick  W  #  by the Sunshine Coasl  Peace Committee  WEAPONS  U.S. policy is lo 'neither confirm nor deny' Ihe existence of  weapons on board, and Canadian policy is nol lo ask. So,  like everyone else, we assume  they are aboard.  U.S. navy reporls an average  of one nuclear weapons incident /accident every 11 days  between 1965 and 1985, but nol  all accidents are reporlcd. (12)  Human goofs cause 50 lo 70  per cent of these. Each year  5000 people arc removed from  U.S. nuclear weapons programs  because of drugs and alcohol  abuse, negligence or aberrant  behaviour. Stress, boredom and  isolation are inherent in ihe  modern military, particularly in  the nuclear forces. U.S. nuclear  subs typically embark on 75 day  tours in which they are submerged most of the time constantly receiving communications, but maintaining radio  silence. (13)  I don't think those accident  figures include collisions. "U.S.  nuclear subs have gotten snared  in trawler nets and have collided  with cargo ships, harbour tugs,  barges, merchant ships, an aircraft carrier, a destroyer, a  minesweeper, nuclear waste  barrels, a target ship during  practice and a whale. U.S.  nuclear subs have had groundings and have struck bottom.  U.S. nuclear subs have even collided   with   each   other.   But  worse, 'there have been nine  reported collisions between U.S.  nuclear subs and 'hostile  vessels' in Soviet waters during  the I970's alone, and five of  Ihese involved nuclear armed  Soviet submarines.' " (14)  Would a nuclear bomb just  'go off? More likely, some of  the ordinary explosives in Ihe  same weapon might catch fire  or explode and vaporise its  radioactive core.  This map shows where the  predicted 28 mile cloud might  drill. You would nol need to  smell much of the cloud. One  millionth of a gram of plutonium could cause lung cancer,  and a cruise missile warhead  contains roughly five thousand  million limes lhal. (15)  RECOMMENDATION 3  That the provincial government (and other bodies in our  area) urge the federal government to cancel the Nanoose  agreement, ban nuclear vessels  from Canadian waters, and use  the money thereby saved at  Nanoose toward peaceful economic development of that  area. >.  EMERGENCY PLANS  Meantime, before Recommendation 3 is acted upon, you  will agree there is grave danger  of accidents. A lot can be done  to save lives, if we're geared for  it.  POTASSIUM IODIDE  Here is a bottle I keep in my  fridge. You mix it with water  and take four drops a day for  six days during fallout.  Dr.  Rosalie Bertell, a world expert,  said to the Nanoose inquiry, "It  replaces iodine, puts normal  iodine in the thyroid, so you  don't pick up radioactive  iodine, at least at the same rale.  The other replacement is  vitamin B-12 where you put  normal cobalt in the liver, instead of picking up cobalt-60,  which is a very strong gamma-  emitter. My sense is people have  never even been told these  things. Theie's no preparation  for it. When they had the Three  Mile Island accident they didn't  even have any potassium iodide  in the area, and the east coasl  labs stayed up 24 hours trying to  produce it..." (16). So here are  some things we could have  ready.  RECOMMENDATION 4  That until nuclear reactors  and weapons are banned from  B.C., the government assist  local agencies to form nuclear  emergency plans and to publicize these widely.  MONITORING  There's one more problem. I  did give this stuff to the kids  and used it for six days after we  heard about Chernobyl, but I  never use it after radiation leaks  at Nanoose because I never hear  about them.  RECOMMENDATION 5  That the provincial government either set up a radiation  monitoring system, or obtain  accurate and timely information  from the military, so that  residents may know immediately when radioactivity increases.  MAJORITY OPINION  In saying that we must get rid  of nuclear weapons and reactors, the Sunshine Coast Peace  Committee is not expressing a  minority view. This is a growing  majority opinion which is  already definite and widespread.  Already 60 per cent of B.C.  municipalities and regional  districts have chosen to be  nuclear weapons free zones.  These include almost the whole  mainland-southwest area: Vancouver, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, New  Westminster, Delta, Maple  Ridge, White Rock, North Van,  West Van, Squamish-Lillooet  and Whistler. It includes Richmond, the premier's riding,  with an overwhelming vote. As  you know Mr. Veitch, it includes your own riding of Burnaby and it includes our Sunshine Coast Regional District.  Given time, a significant  phrase, no doubt Canada will  join the 26 other nuclear  weapons free nations. Meanwhile we echo the people of  B.C. with our final recommendation.  RECOMMENDATION 6  That the provincial government declare B.C. a nuclear free  zone.  CONCLUSION  Mr. Veitch, I think you will  find the statements are factual,  the topic is essential to our  future development, and the  recommendations are common  sense ones and perfectly possible to carry out. Coast News, February 29,1988  Letters to the Editor  Wait for Commission results  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Honourable Elwood Veitch  Provincial Secretary  Minister of Government  Services, Southwest Region  Parliament Buildings  Victora, B.C.  Dear Sir:  Thank you for the invitation  to make a presentation on  regionalizalion al your meeling  In Sechelt, Thursday, February  4. Unfortunately we were nol  able lo make this presentation  at the meeting because of lime  pressures on the board and  because of the large numbers of  olher presenters at your Sechelt  meeting.  Education has for many,  many years been a matter between the province on the one  hand and locally elected Boards  of School Trustees on the other.  The School Act has always contemplated some decisions being  mandated by the province and  olhers being optional and left to  the discretion of local School  Boards. Usually the province  only mandates what it feels  must be a provincial standard,  so it is rather difficult to see  how regional decentralization  would fit into a system which  calls for minimum provincial  decisions and maximum local  decisions.  The following resolution was,  however, adopted by the board  at their meeting of January 26.  'That the chair or designate  attend the meeting and convey  Kennett's question answered  Editor:  Kindly refer lo the article in  the Coast News, February 22,  1988 - 'Unanswered Question'  by Richard F. Kennett.  Yes, Richard, ihe wooden  crosses referred to identified  human graves - four children  and one adult, Mrs. Henry  Blake, wife of pre-emptor,  Henry Blake.  Land for the Mounl Elphinstone Cemetery site was obtained in 1916. In 1918 W.S.  Kearlon, father of one of the  children, exhumed Ihe remains  of his five year old daughter,  then transferred the bones to  Mount Elphinstone Cemetery.  My Sister, Mary and I stood  at roadside of the one-lime Mill  Road, as Mr. Kearlon wilh his  horse-drawn express wagon,  passed by. Nearing the new  cemetery site on the wagon, we  observed the new homemade  coffin.  The first official burial al the  newly founded community cemelery   was   Maggie   Lehman,  November 1918.  For official data respecting  your question, please refer to  pages 76 and 77 of "The Wesl  Howe Sound Story", a chronological account of historical  events of our community and  adjacent areas, including the  islands of Howe Sound.  Richard, you waited 55 years  for your answer. Publicizing  your haunted experience has  resulted in an answer within one  week. God bless.  Francis J. Wyngaert  Clean up Port Mellon  Editor:  It's encouraging to read the  recent spate of letters expressing  dissatisfaction with Ihe Port  Mellon mill. For too long our  clean air and water have been  held lo ransom in exchange for  Ihe promise of jobs. Perhaps  with enough confidence and imagination we can create an  economic system lhal is responsive and beneficienl on a local  level.  Despite the high-powered  propaganda, multinationals are  often more expensive and less  efficient than small firms, requiring a continual stream of  subsidies and grants lo remain.  Also, large corporations depend on international supply  networks rather than developing links wilh local suppliers. In  Ihe event of a recession communities dependent on one industry are likely to suffer much  more   lhan   an   economy   of  small, diversified businesses.  These are a few of the advantages of local development and  this alternative strategy will  eventually gain widespread acceptance. In the process, we as a  community must exercise more  control over our immediate environment. Let's tell Port  Mellon lo clean up now.!  Sincerely  L.Sukkau  Firemen serve well  ROYAL  COMMISSION  ON  ELECTORAL  BOUNDARIES  Judge T.K. Fisher,  Commissioner  Please take notice that a  public hearing will be held  in Powell River on Monday,  March 7, 11:00 a.m., Haida  Room, Beach Gardens  Resort Hotel, 7074 Westminster Avenue, Powell  River.

The extremely heavy, bricklined  fireplace insert was removed  and carried through Ihe house  and put outside. They had lirsl  laid down tarps to protect rugs  and prevent further damage.  After they left, and a quick  vacuuming, there was no  evidence of the fire, or their  presence, other than the gaping  fireplace.  I am very grateful to live in a  place served so well by  neighbours whose volunteer efforts provide service. Thank  you very much.  Ricki Moss  Comments on  privatization  Editor:  In reference lo Privatization  in Canada we have 3 major air  lines, one governmenl controlled and two private. The governmenl one has enjoyed a virtual  monopoly in Canada for years  and has stifled the private enterprises in every way possible.  That is, until de-regulation.  Now ihey are asking we, the  public, for a further 300 million  lo add to their huge deficit in  order lo compete with Ihe  private airlines. If we give Ihem  Ihe 300 million, surely the other  airlines should gel the same.  The only other alternative is  to sell our national airline and  cul any further losses.  Re: B.C. Liquor Stores. If I  were running the Sechelt Liquor  Store 1 would expand the store  and give the employees a piece  of the action and bring in quality European wines that we have  been denied at affordable  prices.  I would put 75 percent of the  locally produced wines in a corner marked Vinegar and sell  ihem at 50 cents to $1 a bottle.

This time, il  'will be a referendum to transfer  I some of the powers of ihe Chief  [and Council io the Sechell In-  jdian Government District.  ;��� The lirsl step, the creation of  ;a constitution for self governmenl was completed lasl year.  This constitution determines  such matters as how chiefs and  councils arc elected and who  may elect ihem. Bul as well as  internal band affairs, ihere are  also matters io be considered  such as land leased lo non-band  'members, roads and traffic  regulations, public order and  safety.  For this reason the original  Bill C-93 provided for the  establishment of the Sechell Indian Governmenl Dislricl to  have jurisdiction over all Sechell  lands.  Simply slated, ihere are band  mailers and Ihere are land mailers and in each case ihe governing body will be the Chief and  Council. But it is important lo  separale the Iwo funclions  because in band mailers, only  band members are affected  while in land matters some of  the people affected are non-  band members.  Thus the need for ihe legal  entity of a Districl. Il will be  similar to a Dislricl Municipality but unique. Federal legislation has even dictated lhal provincial legislation respecting the  Sechelt    Scenario  Dislricl be in force as a con-  lingenl condilion.  The band is furlher protected  by a clause slating lhal should  lhat provincial legislation be  amended some or all of Ihose  powers transferred lo the  dislricl may be transferred back  to the band.  According lo Sechelt Chief  Tom Paul, under the old Indian  Act non-band members on  band lands paid provincial taxes  bul gained little from ihem  because Ihey were lands under  federal jurisdiction. Now, under  self governmenl, Ihe Sechelt  Band will be Ihe authority to  levy laxes and will be able to offer services.  There are 21 specified classes  of mailers under Bill C-93 that  the band council can make laws  on.

Once the Indian Government  District is functioning, an advisory council will be appointed  from a choice of names submitted to the provincial governmenl bul after the firsl term of  office they will be elected.

Coast News, February 29,1988  Pender Patter  Nigel Kingston compares the anchor of Rick King's boat, 'ihe  Tamara, with the unidentified anchor they hooked onto last week.  See story below. ���Mynle Winchester pholo  Tamara hooks up  with old anchor  by Myrtle Winchester  Pender Harbour residents  Rick King and Blair Redfern  unexpectedly acquired a huge,  yet-unidentified anchor last  Sunday morning near ihe Skar-  don Islands (also known as Ihe  Indian Islands) al Ihe mouth of  Pender Harbour.  When they tried to raise the  anchor of King's boal, The  Tamara, they encountered a  great deal of resistance.  "We thought that il was an  old log or something," said  King. "We were getting ready  to cut the rope (on The  Tamara's anchor), then we  decided to give her one more  try."  They pulled aboard a  seaslime and barnacle-covered  anchor weighing between three  and four hundred pounds and  wilh aboul 150 feel of heavy  chain attached lo it.  "We were scared of il pulling  ihe nose off the boat," said  King. "Il broke ihe winch  chain," he added.  The anchor incident seems a  fining chapter in The Tamara's  unique history. Buill in 1910,  she was used as a government  quarantine boat for Chinese immigrants. King bought her in  Victoria only two weeks ago,  planning to use her for charters.  King speculates lhal the anchor may be from an old rum  runner lhal was here from Seattle, and the anchor's stamp,  "lssacson, Seattle" doesn'l  eliminate ihe possibility.  The anchor is now at the entrance to Madeira Marina, and  the people of Madeira Park  continue to wonder about its  origin.

Based on political agreements alone, ihe  idea of collective security is a chimera The  other point is that the primary challenge in dealing with issues of peace is to raise the context  to the level of principle, as diMinci from pure  pragmatism. R)r. in essence, peace itcnu from  an inner stale supported by a spiritual or moral  attitude, and it is chiefly in evoking this attitude  that the possibility of endunng solutions sun be  found.  There are spiritual principles, or what some  call human values, by which solutions can he  lound Sir every social problem Any well-intentioned group can in a general sense devise practical solutions to its problems, but good intentions and practical knowledge are usually not  enoughThc essential merit of spiritual principle is that it nol only presents a perspective  which harmonizes with lhat which is immanent  m human nature, u also induces an attitude, a  dynamic, a will, an aspiration, which faciliUile  the discovery and implementation of practical  measures. Leaden of governments and all in  authority would be well served in their efforts  to solve problems if they would first seek to  identity the principles, involved and men be  guided by them.

Gib-  ���oni, BB6-2078.  3C  ac  aa  George    in    Gibsons  Food Bank active  by George Cupper, 886-8520  The Gibsons Food Bank  distributes a fairly large amoum  of food every month from the  Nifty Thrifty Store site.  "There is about one good  meal for a family in each bag,"  says Gwen Robertson, "and we  try to give food that can be used  by the ones receiving it. Some  folks, for instance, can't use  powdered milk."  "We have donations of produce like potatoes and carrots  to distribute all year, and in ihe  summer there is all lhal extra  garden produce lhal folk are  glad lo give to others through  us."  "Some of those who receive  food from the bank come lo  help in ihe Nifty Thrifty as iheir  way of returning Ihe favour."  The Food Bank is supported  by donations of food or cash,  and by all the net proceeds of  Nifty Thrifty's sales. Schools  have been approached lo have  food boxes for pupil donalions.  "We keep the prices very  low," says Gwen, "on all Ihe  variety of items we have for  sale. Our stock comes from  people who are moving away  and have extra things ihey don'l  wish to take, and from bequests  and olher forms of donation."  "Our staff is all volunteer  now," Gwen says, "and a Sunday opening of the store will depend upon some exlra  volunteers."  Although Nifty Thrifty has  had Iwo break-ins in Ihe pasl six  months, Ihe losses have nol  been a great set-back. "A  money Iray and a little cash  were stolen. The Iray was worth  more lhan the cash lhal was in  it. Bul our premises are secure  now."  Cash donalions can be made  al Ihe Nifty Thrifty above Ken's  Lucky Dollar or senl lo Gibsons  Food Bank, Box 598. Tax  receipts will be issued for all  cash donations.

The book, edited by  Matthew Speier, Ph.D., of Ihe  Department of Sociology and  Chairman of Education for  Nuclear Disarmament of  Capilano College, provides a  broad view of courses taught  across Canada al the college  and university level, coupled  with a very comprehensive  bibliography.

He said  there were numerous hills and  valleys along Ihe line which  allowed sediment to collect in  and reduce Ihe effective  diameter of the pipe. At some  poinl, he said, the line would  have to be Hushed with a special  pressure nozzle.  Bul as pari of a methodical  upgrading of Ihe system, Reeves  is recommending Ihe Sluan  Road sublrunk system be  brought In lo join Ihe only line  lhal presently gravity feeds the  plant.  He proposes that this be done  in two stages. The first phase to  cost $12,000 and the second  phase $13,000.  Forestry  office  may close  In an attempt lo reduce ad-  minislralion costs in the  Forestry Service, the provincial  Ministry of Forests and Lands is  considering several oplions.  One of ihe mosl likely courses  of aclion, a source within ihe  Forest Service lias told the  Coast News, is thai the number  of field offices will be reduced  by amalgamating the administrative functions inlo half  the offices.  One such combination would  be ihe Sechell Forestry office  and Ihe Powell River office.  There is a question of which  would be chosen as the administration cenlre for Ihe Iwo  areas.  The Sechell office currently  employs 42 people and presides  over Ihe forest areas from Howe  Sound up to Jervis Inlet, and  west as far as Lasqueli Island.  If ihe administration of Ihis  area is relocated to Powell  River, field office staff of approximately 12 people is all thai  will remain.  Volunteers  needed  Interested in oil painting and  would like lo share your skills?  A small group of residents al a  Sechelt Intermediate Care  Home needs one to Iwo hours  of help and instruction in oil  painting each week. Supplies  are available, and although  Monday mornings are preferred, this can be negotiated.  In the Gibsons area an elderly  gentleman, with some visual impairment, seeks a volunteer who  would spend one to two evening  hours each week reading correspondence aloud and writing  letters.  If either of these opportunities interests you, call  Volunteer Action Centre at  885-5881 or drop into the office, upstairs at The Dock,  Cowrie Street, Sechelt.  Beginning  gardening  by Marguerite  Many experienced gardeners  have plans made, had a soil test,  ordered their seeds and plants,  have sweetened their soil with  dolomite lime, pruned their  fruit trees and roses, and  sprayed them by now.  If you are a beginner to  gardening, it can be rather  frustrating at first to absorb  when to do various jobs, what is  the priority, or seeds planted  which don't materialize as the  picture packets indicate.  We all have failures, and  learn by them, as gardening is  like painting a picture, it's quite  an ait. Some people have greal  talent, and their vegetable and  flower gardens or palio illustrates this.  Do you want to grow  flowers? Annuals, which will  flower this year and then go to  seed, include carnations,  larkspur, pansies, sweet peas to  name a few, consult catalogues  for your favourites. They all  need to be planted indoors now  or in a greenhouse.  Tomatoes take about 12  weeks fiom planting in heat, or  on top of the fridge covered,  until one can expect to put them  outside directly in the garden  after the last frost, and need a  position with at least six hours  or more of sunshine.  The Sechelt Garden Club  meet will be held at St. Hilda's  Hall at 7:30 pm on Wednesday,  March 2. Oirj and new members  and guests welcome.

Since Nick likes poetry, Barbara broughl him over io meel  me and we spent a relaxed couple of hours talking aboul  books and show business. Al  the time, I was planning a profile on Barbara, SO much of the  conversation centred on her  burgeoning career. Nick impressed me as a very interesting  guy, highly articulate and ex-  irenicly well read, no lightweight 'Handsome Harry' by  any stretch of the imagination, I  had seen his work in several  films, particularly Ticket To  llcuvrn, and knew he was an  actor of no mean lalenl.  The talk gol around lo script  ideas and 1 showed Nick some  of ihe material lhal Yvonne and  I had compiled on Herb Wilson, the King of the Safecrackers. Nick was fascinated and  said he'd love to play Ihe  Wilson character on the screen.  He asked if he could lake ihe  material to I..A. and show it to  a few people. Il was agreed that  if anything should develop,  Yvonne and I would have first  chance lo do Ihe scripting. I had  visions of big bucks. Unfortunately, Nick was unable lo  find a backer so nothing came  of this.  In 1985, Nick's TV series, in  which he played a son of  modern day Paladin, debuted to  heavy critical acclaim. This was  no guarantee of success as  shows that the critics like, frequently bomb, bul Stingray did  well enough in the ratings during ils initial season io be renewed for a second year.  Stephen J. Cannell Productions decided lo move Stingray  from Los Angeles lo a location  in Canada for ils second season.  The firsl seven episodes were  filmed in Calgary under very  adverse weather conditions. It  was decided lo film the rest of  the episodes in B.C.  When I heard Nick was going  lo be filming in and around  Vancouver for several weeks, I  decided lo see if he'd let me do a  slory on him. 1 knew he hated  giving interviews, "1 always get  niisquoted and come off sounding like a jerk!", but I figured  lhal ihe fact we had met would  help. If nothing else, it would be  a chance to talk with him again.  Getting hold of Mancuso  when he was on a shoot proved  io be easier said lhan done. He  seemed lo be either working or  had left orders not :o be  disturbed. 1 gave up on il lor  a while and busied myself wilh  olher projects. Finally 1 got a  message to him through Barbara's sisler, Eileen, and made  phone contact. Nick sounded  genuinely pleased lo hear from  me. "I wasn't going to give any  more interviews," lie said, "bul  seeing as it's you, what the  hell...?"       To be continued...

Rhythms of Life  Oceanic power of Pisces  by Penny Fuller  Anyone who lias watched the  ocean during a fall storm, as the  waves toss around huge logs as  if they were toothpicks, will  have to admit that there is an incredible strength in the ocean.  But few people will describe the  most liquid of Ihe water signs,  Pisces, as a strong sign.  If you were born between  February 20 and March 21,  when the Sun was in ihe sign of  Pisces, there is a strong indication that, like water, you tend to  mold yourself lo your cnviron-  mcnl. You may have a hard  lime, if pressed, in denning  yourself and your beliefs  because, looking back in your  life, you may have changed and  adjusted your sense of self  many times to bring them into  line with the beliefs of the people around you.  It's important to remember  the true quality of water;  although it will alter to fili  whatever space it is put in, it  always remains H20. While it's  true for everyone, it is especially  true for people born with a  Pisces Sun, that you need lo sit  down quietly with yourself,  become familiar with your own  essence, your strength.  We all tend to let the world  around us, and the people we  spend time with, define us. The  words they use, the expectations  they have of us and the way  they treat us, have a powerful  affect on our sense of self. But  there is a great deal of  manipulation done that way,  and unfortunately, some people  may prefer lo have you feel  weak and ineffective.  Try this exercise. Write down  a list of all your faults and  weaknesses, most people can go  on for a long time if ihey really  get into a binge of self-criticism.  Now take each point that  you've written and do what  social worker types call  "refraining".  That is, use a different word  or phrase with a positive connotation to describe the personality trait. For example:  wishy-washy can be stated also  as a strength - adaptable; messy  could be 'not hung up on external appearances; indecisive  could be open-minded.  Often we allow Ihe language  used to describe us to create or  destroy our sense of strength.  As soon as you slarl to redefine  yourself in a positive way, you'll  start to connect with that  oceanic    kind of power.  Having retrained your terms  of reference, you can slarl lo  catch your own thoughts and  words and notice when ihey  hold a negative implication  about yourself. Then, ruthlessly  reframe Ihose thoughts, Force  yourself, even for a week, lo  change every negative into a  positive. You'll find lhal your  self-image is becoming clearer  and stronger - more like water  as a matler of fad.  Having begun ihe process of  self-empowerment with the  awareness of your own thoughts  and words, you will probably  begin to notice the way people  around you use words to  manipulate you, to feel better or  worse about yourself.  You  then  have  a   further  choice of ei'her refraining any  negative concepts thai are being  ihrown your way, or removing  yourself from ihe company of  people who feed their own sense  of strength by belittling you.  Thai's a powerful sicp in taking  control of your environment,  Remember that with your  Sun in Pisces, you will always  have a tendency to be strongly  influenced by those around you.  Willi that in mind, however,  you can choose friends and  associates who feed your  strength and self-esteem, people  who truly like and admire you.  Anybody else lhat you happen to be stuck with (we all have  family members who delight in  dragging us down), remind  ihem how powerful waler can  lie and reframe any shots they  send your way, so lhat Ihey appear to be constantly praising  you. You may need the help of  some supportive friends for  this. The end result is that those  bags of wind will make your  strength more apparent to  yourself and everybody else.

Newman. Viking  Penguin $25.  It would be interesting to  know how many shoppers in a  modern Hudsons Bay store are  aware that the company once  controlled a land domain ten  times the size of the Holy  Roman Empire, a territory that  encompassed most of what is  now Canada and extended into  Idaho, Wyoming, Montana,  Washington and Oregon, with  outposts in Alaska, San Francisco and Hawaii.  '. 'Caesars of the Wilderness',  the second book of Peter  Newman's trilogy dealing with  the Hudsons Bay Company is at  tijnes an overwhelmingly detailed account of the Company.  Granted a royal charter by  Prince Rupert in 1670, the  Company has survived into the  present by a chameleon-like  ability to adjust to circumstances. In this volume  Newman deals with the no-  holds-barred conflict between  Cable Eleven  the Hudsons Bay Company and  the North West Company.  The Nor'Westers were a  group of independent minded  Scots and Englishmen who included such well known figures  as Alexander Mackenzie, Simon  Fraser and David Thompson.  In their insatiable quest for furs,  the North West Company opened up the whole of the western  portion of what is now Canada  and a large part of the north  west of the present U.S.  A courageous, free spirited  group of buccaneers, they made  huge profits and left behind a  'trail of syphilis, drunkenness  and mixed blood babies'.  The energy of the  Nor'Westers finally ran out.  Overextended both physically  and financially, they faced  financial ruin in the first two  decades of the 19th century.  The Hudsons Bay Company,  who had remained centered  around Hudsons Bay, had  always been a more conservative organization. Kept in  tight   control   by   London  owners, it was in a more stable  financial position. In 1821 the  two companies merged, with the  Hudsons Bay in control.  Newmain claims that the present Hudsons Bay Company cooperated fully in his research,  making available to him all  company records with no  restrictions.  The picture thai emerges is a  complex one. On one hand  there was the superhuman  courage and daring of  thousands of men dedicated to  the success of a purely commercial venture, and in the process  exploring and mapping a large  part of the continent.  On the other hand there was  the astronomical cost in terms  of humanity and ecology. The  fur traders, in order to feed the  thousands of men involved in  the enterprise, virtually wiped  out the buffalo that provided  Ihe raw material for pemmican,  Ihe staple diet of the adventurers. Furs were sought with no  thought lo conservation. The  changing whims of fashion,  when men's beaver hats lost  favour, was irobably the only  thing that saved the beaver from  extinction. The use of alcohol as  a form of currency with the Indian trappers has left a legacy  lhat is still with us.  Newman has done a  remarkable job of chronicling a  portion of Canada's history  which up till now has only been  dealt with piecemeal. From now  on, il will nol be possible ever  again to characterize Canadians  as dull and lacking in iniative. A  visit to a Bay store will conjure  up visions of daring men who  laid Ihe very foundations of Ihe  now familiar ordered and comfortable life we all enjoy.  FEBRUARY SALE!!

The view from Davis Bay is something I too often sec  only out of the corner of my eye while driving by wilh my  mind on the traffic. What a pleasure to relax in the beautiful  surroundings of the Wharf Restaurant and really watch as t he  brilliant colours slowly faded and gave way to an indigo sky  highlighted by two brilliant planets and a young moon that  shimmered silver on the water.  It was an auspicious beginning to a perfect meal. The  preliminary salad was crisp with an intriguing variety of  greens and vegetables, highlighted by black olives and a delectable dressing. My companion chose the fillet of sole and  reported that it was just right. I decided on the prawns and  scallops. Crisp on the outside and succulent on the inside, it  was seafood as it should be. The vegetables were cooked to  perfection. There was a rice pilaf with the sole and a baked  potato with the shellfish, broccoli with cheese sauce and grilled stuffed tomatoes.  In the rush of daily living it is all too easy to forget the  pleasures of a leisurely meal in a fine restaurant. We are lucky  to have the opportunity for this in the Wharf Restaurant.  Although there may not be a sunset every evening in Davis  Bay, it is always beautiful, always different.  Next time you feel the need to replenish your soul, you  couldn't find a better place to do it than the Wharf.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

We have been informed by  the Greens Committee Chairman, Stuart Leffeaux thai ihe  work roads, otherwise known as  damaged fairway areas, will be  cleaned up and repaired when  Ihe weather makes il feasible,  possibly near the end of March.  Over thirty  men's soccer  The Gilligan's Men's soccer  leam invited ihe Bowen Island  soccer leam over to Ihe Coast  for a return match, We had to  see if we could avenge our loss  lo the Bowen Island leam back  in December. We, on the Gilligan's leam, were prepared lo  show the opposition our fancy  footwork and our skillful ball  control when they arrived at the  field.  The Bowen leam arrived at  Ihe government wharf in Gibsons aboard the Alibi Wahoo.  When we picked Ihem up we  kepi our ears open lo see if we  could hear some of ihe strategy.  They must have realized whal  we were up lo because all ihey  talked aboul was our last game  with them and how ihey were  going to have a tournament and  invite the Gilligan's team and  the Wakefield leam.  So by Ihe time we got lo the  field we had no secrets lo tell  our team-mates.  Within the first minute of  play the Bowen leam was on the  scoreboard (Ihey showed us  some of iheir fancy footwork).  We thought the game was going  lo be a little one-sided but by  the time Ihe first half was over,  we had a lie game, 2 to 2.  We almost had the go-ahead  goal from a penalty kick but we  didn't quite make Ihe shol and  looking back on it, I'm sure the  goalpost al the field must be  lower on one side because our  penalty taker hit the corner of  the goalpost. Anyway, Ihe final  oulcome of the game was Gillian's 2, Bowen 4.  Strikes and Spares  In the Classic League, Hazel  Skytte rolled a 301 single and a  969 four game total and  Freeman Reynolds a 308 single  and a 948 total,  In Ihe Gibsons 'A' League  Lottie Campbell had a 323  single and a 659 triple and  Kathy Clark a 322 single and a  791 triple.  The only olher 300 game rolled was by Lori Veen, a 300 even  and a 631 triple, in Ihe Wednesday Coffee League.

The score was  one-sided with Killarney winning 1610 2. Buddy Peers was the  only scorer for his Sechelt leam.  Laler in the day the Bantams  had a game against a team from  Maple Ridge. The end result  was 18 goals for the Bantams  and 2 for Maple Ridge. David  Paetkau was impressive wilh 4  goals. Darryl Bracket! had 3  and Collin Campbell, Marc  Poulson and Darren Bracken  each had 2.  The game againsl Killarney  and the Pups on Sunday was a  much better game lor our team.  Ihe score ended wilh 12 for  Killarney and II lor Sechell.  Jessie Smith had 3 goals, Mark  McCluiddy and Brook Hamilton had 2, and David Bodmer,  Brad Wing, .lordie Radymski  and Buddy Peers each had 1.  Listening to some of the conversation belwecn Ihe parents al  the arena on Sunday, il sounds  as if everyone had a great time.  This certainly is a fun division  lo watch on Ihe ice. The Ban-  lams were on ihe ice again  againsl Maple Ridge and easily  managed ihe win. The end  result was 14 10 3. Francis Dixon had 4 goals, David Paelkau  had 3 and Clay Munson and  Shane Joe each had 2.

In Ihe 8 and  9 year olds age group Shop Easy  defeated Nicks Shell by a score  of 3 lo 1. Sechell Pharmasave  beal Sechelt Lions by a score of  5 lo 2. In the 10 and 11 year olds  we saw Sechell Team No. 1 narrowly beal Gibsons Team No. I  by a score of 1 to 0. Sechelt  Team No. 2 lost 10 Gibsons  Team No. 2 by a score of I to 3.  The coach of the Sechell  Team No. 2 said that even  though we lost, this game was  one of the besl games we played  so far this year. I've gol to admit I'm kind of biased because  I'm the coach of Sechelt Team  No. 2.  The 12 and 13 year olds had  an exciting game also, both  sides played a greal game bul  the goalie on the GBS Team  played an outstanding game.  The score was Elphi Rec I,  GBS 0.  By Ihe way, I'm the coach of  Ihe Elphi Rec Team and I still  think the goalie on the other  side   played   an   outstanding  game.

Coast News, February 29,1988  School Board gets update  New Chatelech programs  Brian Butcher, Principal of  Chatelech   Secondary   School,  ���   outlined for the School Board  some new programs lhal have  j   been recently undertaken by the  school.  The Mechanics Career  Preparation Program has been  initiated with the co-operation  of BUT. Teachers George Irish  and Ken Rogers have been  responsible for the new  endeavour. Close contact with  BCIT will ensure lhal bolh  teachers and students keep  abreast of new technology,  local students, under the agree-  nienl with BCIT, will have  preferential admission to the  Vancouver facility,  The Work Experience Program gives high school students  the opportunity to spend a  significant   amount   of  time  working in local businesses.  "The kids ate finding this e\-  ciling and invigorating," said  Butcher, "They have a higher  profile in the community, and ii  lias added a dimension of reality  to iheir education."  Butchei went on lo say thai  there are plans to work with  apilano College on a Business  Education Program similar lo  the Mechanics course, and  ultimately to have a TV iraining  program.  Leadership training is also being undertaken by the school,  wilh siudeni representatives at-  Gibsons  solvent  "l just can't see why lax  dollars are going lo Victoria and  not here," slated Gibsons  ''' or Diane Slrom lo the  Coasl News lasl Friday commenting on ihe restructuring  issue.  "Bul what aboul Ihe rumours  thai Gibsons is broke and pasl  iheir borrowing limii?"  "We are nowhere near our  limit!" retorted Mayor Strom.  "The lown is solvent. In fact we  now have a general operating  surplus of $253,000.  We are  comfortabl  lending    Sechell    Council  meetings.  Butcher expressed his appreciation for the new Librarian  and said thai students are being  trained in library technology.  "Bul," he reminded Trustees,  "we are desperately in need of  books. Please keep lhal in mind  al Budget time."  Aquatic Commission  Wish list written  by Kric Cardinall  A special meeting of the Crib-  sons Aquatic Centre Commission was called recently in order  to discuss and to arrive al a concensus regarding I'm lire opera-  lions and the retrofitting of the  Aquatic Centre. Although the  cenire is currently running  within iis budget despite some  unforeseen expenses, and ihe  participation level is somewhat  bettei than anticipated, trends  in fitness and recreational swimming and water use indicate the  need for regular adjustments to  meel the ever changing lads and  habits of the user public.  Pools are no longer places in  which only to learn basic swimming skills and to trudge back  and forth for exercise and conditioning. The pools thai are on  the leading edge (Chelwynd,  Grand forks and Powell River)  give the users a greatly enhanced environment of coloured  ligliling, dangle dandy sound  bailies on the ceiling, coordinated colour schemes with a  prominent local theme, attractive viewing areas, conversational nooks in hot pools,  murals, and the like.  In all instances where these  cosmetic and physical improvements have been made, il  has been proven lhal the greater  the community involvement in  the changes to program and selling, the greater the user  response. When the community  is also pari of substantial additions such as fitness facilities,  racquet ball, lounge and social  areas, ihen the users also include non-swimmers and become an assel to local people  place resources.  Given all of the above, ihe  Aquatic Commission arrived al  ANGLICAN CATHOLIC  CHURCH OF CANADA  ST.

Workshop 'Chlorine Hazards' - 7:00 pm  Thursday, March 10th  Regular Board Meeting ��� 7:30 pm  ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT  COMMISSION - VACANCY  Membership on the Economic Development Commission has been expanded to include a member from the  Halfmoon Bay to Earles Cove area.  The EDC will be placing increased emphasis on  strengthening the economy on this part of the Coast in  1988. The Regional District Board would be pleased to  hear Irom anyone from this area interested in serving as  a member of the Commission.  NUISANCE ACTIONS  Nuisance actions are instances in which a home is damaged as a result of a sewer, drainage or water system, or  roadway or dyke, breaking down or malfunctioning.  In fact, if you are not properly insured, these nuisances  -Irom flooded basements to backed up sewers ��� could cost  you thousands of dollars.  In the past, municipalities/regional districts generally picked up the damage costs or left it to the  municipality's/regional district's insurance policy.  Bill 30, an amendment to the province's Municipal Act, has  changed everything, taking the liability for nuisance actions off municipalities/regional districts in an effort to  ease insurance pressures on local governments.  This leaves most homeowners without coverage against  nuisance claims. Homeowners in most cases can no  longer turn to the municipality/regional district for financial help in these situations.  Homeowners are advised to check their own insurance  coverage. In most cases an inexpensive rider can be added  to homeowner insurance which will ensure that the homeowner will be covered in the event of a nuisance action.

These persons may be intent on  breaking-in later. Call the RCMP if you suspect  such persons.  Nine occurrences in Gibsons and one in Sechelt  of break-ins during the past three months have  been solved, and charges laid against five young offenders.  The stolen property consisted chiefly of coin collections, money, liquor, jewellry, stereos and  Walkmans.  One of these break-ins had nol been reported to  the police although a coin collection, a valuable  watch and necklace were laken.  In the past month beer has been seized from  youths at Georgia Beach, a noisy party broken up  on Hillcrest and the party-goers sent on their way,  two 24-hour suspensions, and a charge of driving  impaired.

A large amount of stolen property has been  recovered and the investigation is continuing.  On February 18, 1988, two Vancouver males  were arrested at the Langdale Ferry terminal by  members of Sechelt and Gibsons Detachments.

There is no fee for any of these service Meetings to be held in camera  EDC crawls into closet  Coast News, February 29,1988  Conlinued from page 1  It was pointed out to Mr.  Gurney that neither Sechelt nor  Gibsons has any written policy  of excluding the public from  any of their committee  meetings, nor is that the policy  of any other committee of the  SCRD.  Gurney's response was that  the EDC is not answerable to  the public or the media. Being a  commission of the SCRD, he  said, it is answerable only to the  board.  Other commission members  who were contacted by the  Coast News confirmed  Gurney's explanation lhal ihe  policy had been sel in an attempt to 'de-politicize' the commission.  Art Giroux, who made Ihe  motion, also added that the  commission had "had enough  of the lousy reporling, much of  which has been flagrantly biased."  Questioning both Ihe morality and the legality of such a  policy, the Coast News contacted the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs last Friday,  where the reporter consulted  Neil Goldie. Goldie confirmed  lhal the SCRD was under the  jurisdiction of Ihe Municipal  Act and its letters patent.  The Municipal Act states that  a council or committee can hold  "special meetings" from which  the public is barred when it is  deemed to be in the public interest. The standard interpretation of lhal section, which is  adopted by most councils including both Sechelt and Gibsons, is that the public interest is  served when personnel matters  or land acquisition or sales are  being discussed.  However, the EDC has no  mandale io buy or sell real  estate, and the only personnel  consistently connected with the  commission is the Economic  Developmeni Officer. A subcommittee was struck at the last  EDC meeling to handle the  screening of applicants for that  position.  Mr. Goldie suggested that the  Coasl News register a formal  protest with the Regional  District. If our concerns were  not addressed by that body, he  said, we then had the option of  laying a complaint with the Inspector of Municipalities. Based  on his advice, the Coast News is  drafting a letter to the SCRD  which should be dealt with at  the next board meeting on  March 10.  The revised 1988 budget for  the EDC was also adopted at  the February 19 meeting. The  total budget will be $125,000,  but unlike previous years there  will be no help from the  municipalities or provincial  government in funding it. The  cost will have to be met by taxpayers in the regional district.  According to the 1986 census,  these areas hold a total population of 9269 people.  Other issues which were dealt  with at the closed meeling included the Commission's endorsement of chairman Maurice  Egan's plans to meet wilh the  Aquaculture Association and  explore the enhancement of Ihe  industry in electoral Area A.  At Sunday's meeting  Sechelt finally gets facts  Continued from page I  residences. We're not going to  mind tugs and barges," said  Meredith. "We don't mind tugs  and log booms."  Finally the Hospital Board  chairman said that he thought it  was 'shocking' to criticize the  legal advertisement which  recently appeared."They did  what they were supposed to.  Reclamation will be on an  ongoing basis, replacing topsoil  and planting vegetation. As for  the run-off getting into Chapman Creek, it would have to be  pumped uphill to do that."  Sechelt businessman Vic  Walters expressed his deeply-  felt reservations about the project and the one that struck the  deepest chord in the meeting  was the question of water supp-  Regional   Board   Chairman  Peggy Connor was in attendance and did her best to  answer these questions.  Resident Norm Hoffar suggested that people should forget  about letter-writing campaigns.  "Forget the letters," said  Hoffar, "this thing is going  through. People should go to  the Regional Board to have  their legitimate concerns about  water supply answered."  Hoffar also said that as a  resident of 35 years who had  just returned after a six year  absence, he was amazed to find  the degree of hostility and confrontation which still existed  between local jurisdictions.  "How can such a small area  have so much conflict?" he added,  Long time resident Alec Gibsons also wanted to know how  the Hospital Board chairman  Inlet study  gets funding  Gordon Wilson, chairman of the Foreshore Advisory Task  Force was surprised to learn at last Thursday's meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District that his committee had  received a $40,000 grant from the provincial government to  continue their study of the Sechelt Inlet, which will result in  the division of the waters into recommended designated use  areas.  Wilson had, earlier in the week, submitted the amended  terms of reference for the study to Sechelt Council for their  endorsement.  Whatever response Alderman Bob Wilson brought to the  meeting from the district municipality was not presented once  the announcement was made.

"Mr. Roike was delighted to  answer all my questions," said  Meredith. "Had the mayor or  any member of council gone in,  they would have been treated as  I was."  Mayor Koch objected to this.  "Are you saying that if the  mayor wasn't here things would  be better?" he demanded. "If  the people feel I'm an impediment, I would be happy to step  down right now."  "1 was talking only about attitude," said Meredith.  Regional Board Chairman  Peggy Connor told the Coast  News after the meeting that she  would be happy to publicize the  necessary information about the  water supply in next week's  paper.

February 29,1988  Sparks fly over  restructuring  Sparks flew at lasi week's  meeting of the regional board  when the copy of a letter Irom  Ihe Minisler of Municipal Affairs, Rila Johnston, to Mayor  Diane Strom was received for  discussion. Ihe Idler appeared  io he ihe result of a letter written lo Ihe Minisler by Mayor  Slrom complaining aboul Ihe  behaviour of regional hoard  directors regarding Ihe sludy being done lo assess ihe advantage  and disadvantages of restructuring the boundaries of ihe limn  of Gibsons,  In the letter, Johnston writes,  "ll Is unfortunate thai ihe Electoral Area Directors have taken  a firm stand against restructure  al Ihis lime. The purpose of a  restructure study Is lo build a  firm foundation of facts and  analysis from which io make informed decisions as io whether  restructure  is  necessary  and  whal form il should lake. In ihis  case ihe opposition of ihe Electoral Area Directors Is  premature."  Ilia Director .Mm Gurney insisted, "We clearly stated whal  our position would be, and lhal  is lo represent our constituents.  And I can only do lhal by  gathering information."  Strom replied lhal she hoped  bolh Gurney and Area F Director John Shaske would wail until ihere was something to  debate, and ihen deal wilh  issues instead of personalities,  "It's being perceived by many  members of ihe public as a  takeover, and that's not whal ii  is. We're nol expanding our  boundaries, we are looking at a  sludy lo know whal ihe pros  and cons are. I think a lol of  people wanl lo know."  Area D Director Breil  McGillivray repealed his asser-  lion lhal "once Ihe decision has  been made, ihe vole is antidemocratic."  Gurney also look exception  lo whal he called, "Ihe implication of misappropriation of  public  funds"  in   the  third  paragraph of Ihe letter, which  read, "I lake your comments on  the Electoral Area Directors use  of feasibility funds under advisement, 1 do not wish io comment on your specific concerns  Other lhan lo say lhal as a  general principle, general  governmenl   expenditures  are  raised from taxpayers al large  and should nol be expended on  activities which would exclusive-  Ij benefil a pan of Ihe regional  district."  "I wanl lo make il very  clear," said Gurney, "lhal no  money has been spenl so fai.  Any expenses incurred lo acquire information have been  met hy ihe community. If we  need money io acquire more Information, I will coiiie lo the  board and requesl it."  Bul Mayor Slrom pointed  oui thai Gibsons contributes to  Ihe Sunshine Coast Regional  Dislricl and would oppose any  attempl io use ihe money io  liglu restructuring,  Potential discussed  Gibsons and Sechell Councils, and Regional Board directors each met separately with representatives from the  Minisler of Stale's office lasl week, lo presenl Iheir ideas  aboul ihe economic potential of Ihe Sunshine Coasl.  Regional Board Chairman Peggy Connor expressed  satisfaction with her meeling with Norm Jacobson and  Maurice Cowden, saying ihey talked aboul everything lhal  ihe Regional Dislricl and Economic Developmeni Commission are doing, from Ihe Hillside venture lo Ihe water system.
