The Sunshine  Published at Qibsons, JJ.C. 25' per copy on news stands  February 15,1982 Volume 36, Number 7  Role reversal at Chatelech  Students are teachers  f Halfmoon Bay was taken from the vicinity of the Redrooffs Trail where a controversy abou  public access continues. (See story below)  Redrooffs controversy  Trail barriers down  The closure of the HWoric Redrooffs Trail in Halfmoon Bay, reported in last week's Coast News, has  caused a renewed controversy over the use of the  mile-long shoreline path.'  The barriers, erected it is alleged at the instigation  of a Mr. E. Kunzler of North Vancouver, who  recently purchased adjacent property, from Jadran  Construction, were removed last Wednesday morning by Brock Hansen, a resident of the adjacent  Rutherford Road.  "That trail is very important to those of us who  live along here," Hansen told the Coast News. "My  wife and I use it to get to the Post Office and we go  along and feed the ducks regularly."  Hansen said that two of the four barriers were  plank, a third was plywood and plank, and the  fourth_was a section of fencing which slid out of its  :re is also a'huge' pile of earth still blocking  ffp/rt the ends of the trail. He reported that, a Go*  stable Mueller of the RCMP has spoken to him about  t(he removal of the barriers, because of two com-  t*e��jtt^received by the RCMP.  AcOSK^jng to the police officer, the complainants  told the HEMP that they had been given until  February 20tW(|jy the Department of Highways to  remove the barriereC'l can't understand why they  were given such a long time to remove illegal  barriers." said Hansen. "It seems like a long time to  leave a public trail blocked Off."  Hansen is unaware if charges are being contemplated against him for re-opening the trail, but  reports a great deal of support from his neighbours  for his action.  A Coast News reporter spoke to Redrooffs resident and frequent trail user, Diana Gruner. Gruner  was interviewed while returning along the path from  the store with four children. She said that she was  happy the barriers had been removed. She said that it  was a safe route by which her children could go to the  store for her and hoped it would remain open both  for its convenience and beauty.  Halfmoon Bay store owner Hans Schmidt revealed  another viewpoint to the Coast News reporter. He  said that no one had ever asked him how he felt  ...j,trail aad it wasJi|*����j|i��n that tl  should be closed. Mr. flenmidCsaid that while  trail was a convenience to some people, the iii'  of the privacy of property Owners along the trail was  also an important consideration.  Tucker Forsythe of the local Highways Department told the Coast News two weeks ago that the  trail was public and would be re-opened. Whether or  not this re-opening was to include removal of the  earth pile from the trail was not made clear.  - For three hours Thursday afternoon, roles were  . reversed at Chatelech Secondary school as students in  Grade 11 took over the educational program while  teachers became students.  , The experiment was conceived by school principal  June Bernauer, who felt the experience would not only lead to a belter understanding of both teachers and  students for their respective problems, but would  help school spirit.  t Beginning at lunch hour, students in Grade 11  became responsible for teaching classes, school  discipline and the general operation of the school.  Teachers ate their lunches in the halls and took part  id noon hour activities as if they were students. When  the bell for classes rang, teachers, who had student  .timetables prepared for them went to classrooms  '..where three Grade 11 's had been assigned to teach.  {- vThe novice teachers obviously took their new jobs  'very seriously and demonstrated a high degree of  | responsibility in their wort. They insisted on being  called by last names, while regular teachers were called upon by first names and were treated like any  Other student.'  I The administration of the school was in the hands  of principal for the day, Lynn La Riviere and  assistants Dan Brown, Chris Hanson and Sonja  - Jorgenson. When interviewed at the end of what had  obviously been a tough afternoon, Ms. La Riviere  told the Coast News that it had\been, "a very  challenging experience". She further said that  nothing had happened that she hadn't expected and  most of her time had been spent talking to students  .who had been involved in minor incidents. Ms. La  Riviere said she had talked to parents who had phoned and had herself phoned the parents of students  who had misbehaved.  * Asked if she would like to do the job again tomorrow, the student principal said she wouldn't mind  and that she enjoyed the authority she had as principal. Would she like to have been a teacher today instead? Ms. La Riviere replied, "No, 1 would rather  be principal; you need a quiet place to sit; it's too  noisy out there." Asked to sum up her feelings about  the day; "It's not so easy doing this job; you have to  enjoy being around students a lot. 1 could always  close the door, or see one person at a time. Clover  Colbeck who was acting secretary had the hardest job  because she had to deal with students for the whole  jeVeeJjOurs.".,  Regular school principal June Bernauer hopes to  make this an annual event and would like lo see the  afternoon of reversing roles a tradition at Chatelech.  Mrs. Bernauer, who has a great deal of confidence in  the Grade 11 students of Chatelech was generally  pleased with the experiment and felt important  lessons were learned by both students and teachers.  She also believes that with some minor changes in  format and more time spent preparing students for  their responsibilities, the student take-over will be an  even more valuable experience in the future.  ?',.. iiia ;���*������������  Principal for a day, Lynn La Riviere, Grade 11 student at Chatelech, sits al her desk temporarily performing duties of regular principal June Bernauer.  Uorief Matter*., rteot.i  2 out of 3 favour Coast News  Local readership surveyed  Th>i media attitude survey conducted by Admer  Services of North Vancouver reported in last week's  Coast News, revealed a variety of information about  newspaper reading habits on the Coast. In this, the  second; of a six-part series on the attitudes of Coast  residents toward print and electronic media, some of  these attitudes are reported.  As reported last week, 56% of Coast residents do  not receive a daily newspaper on a regular basis. Of  those whb do, 67%*eceive the Sun and 33% the Province. As Jack Cqwley, of Admer Services told the  Coast News, "...bther media would be required to  reach jf majority of households with any message."  Turning to tfie local weekly papers, Cowley  reported that when those surveyed were asked the  question, "If only one weekly newspaper could be  Owner irked  Proprietor Cliff Lindsay of the Driftwooc  Inn in Sechelt called the Coast News last week  to take exception to a remark made by Mayoi  Bud Koch of Sechell..  Koch was quoted in the Coast News two  weeks ago as saying that the Board of Assessment was paying $100 a day for use of the  Driftwood Inn facilities.  "We are not charging $100 a day," said  Lindsay. Mayor Koch was out of town and  unavailable for comment.  Blood donor Clinic  Canadian Red Cross Society - blood donoi  clinics will be in operation this week on the Sun  shine Coast. Blood donors in the Sechelt ares  can give blood today, Monday, February 15th,  at the Sechelt Legion Hall from 3:00 to 8:0C  p.m.  The Gibsons clinic will be held on Thursday,  February 18th, from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. al  the Elphinstone school gym.  Ferry out  The Queen of Burnaby, which struck a  submerged object on its regular Horseshoe Bay  -Langdale run last week, will be out of commission for at least three or four more days, according to B.C. Ferry Corporation sources.  As a result, the ferry schedule has been  severely disrupted, with the Queen of New  Westminster the only available transportation.  delivered in your area, which weekly newspaper  would you prefer?" - 53.5% answered the Coast  News while only 26.7% favoured the other weekly;  19.8% showed ho preference.  Cowley also reported that Coast News readers  spent more time reading their paper than those  reading the other paper.  While the data collected by Admer Services were  very favourable to the Coast News, the survey did  reveal some weaknesses in the paper. As a result, the  Coasl News staff has redesigned the front page to  give it more impact and reorganized the classified  section, to make items easier to find. Other improvements will be made in the near future.  Next week: What Coast residents like to read in  their newspaper.  Driving course?  Teenage violence  concerns parents  Teenage deaths due to careless driving and other  causes such as drug abuse and suicides have roused a  "special interest group" on the Sunshine Coast.  Spokesman Carol Kozij of Halfmoon Bay and about  ten members appealed to the parent-teacher group,  the Senate, of Chatelech Secondary school in Sechelt  last week for support.  "Our two most immediate goals are to initiate a  defensive driving course for teenagers and to request  bus transportation from Halfmoon Bay to Port  Mellon in the evenings and on the weekends", Kozij  told the Coast News.  "Young people on the Coast are isolated and  recreational facilities are limited and far apart. Right  now, teenagers travelling long distances can't stay  after school for extra activities because there is no.  public transportation. It places a burden on parents  to provide transportation and increases the numbers  of young drivers on the roads."  Kozij stated that students at Chatelech have expressed interest in taking a defensive driving course.  It would be presented two evenings a week, eight  hours total.  "Eventually, we may be able to provide two  courses a year, for students at both high schools."  The local school district is planning a one-day professional development workshop for district  teachers, March 12th, to study problems related to  teenage violence and deaths.  Sechelt developer Henry Hall displays his Royal Reach concept at the Vancouver Boat Show.  -<ie*ee|. Maeilee.. et��t.  HalVs plans for Sechelt  'World's longest boat ramp'  "The longest boat ramp in the world", is what  Sechelt developer Henry Hall calls Suncove Resort  Inc.'s proposal to link Porpoise Bay and Georgia  Strait with a roadway which would allow boat trailers  easy access to local fishing waters.  Hall's boat ramp scheme is linked to a massive  concept which would see the construction of a huge  dryland marina, with "secure, covered storage" for  boats; a resort complex, now under construction adjacent to the Sechelt marsh on Porpoise Bay, including 61 self-owned townhouses, a luxury hotel, a  marina complex and a marine pub. Further development would include a "Fisherman's Village" with  In Howe Sound  10, two-week time share apartments for vacationing  fishermen and a charter business that would open up  the 300 mile coastline of Sechelt Inlet to tourists.  The Suncove plan was unveiled last week at the  Vancouver Boat Show where Hall displayed a scale  model of the hotel-townhouse complex along with  display panels advertising the various sub-schemes  within the grand concept.  "The longest boat ramp in the world" appeared,  in the conceptual plan, as what looked like a four  lane road with one end dipping into Porpoise Bay  between the present wharf and Tyee Air and the  other end touching Georgia Strait at the end of  Wharf Road.  Shellfish ban called  A ban on shellfish harvesting in Howe Sound has  been announced by the Fisheries Department Ihis  week. The closures apply to bivalve molluscs,  oysters, clams and mussels.  Sewage contamination is the cause of the water  pollution, but the source of contamination is not  known.  The areas affected are: Plumper Cove on Keats  Island, most of the beach area from Chaster Creek to  Soames Point at Gibsons, Part Graves and a section  of Halkett Bay on Gambier Island, McNab Creek  and Potlatch Creek areas, Deep Bay and a section of  Gafton Bay on Bowen Island.  Shellfish in other areas of the Sunshine Coast are  also under closure, according to Environmental Protection Services regulations. Fisheries Officer Randy  Tancock at Madeira Park told the Coast News thai  Secret Cove, Pender.Harbour and Sargeam's Bay  areas are closed. For specific information, people  should contact Randy at 883-2313.  The Health Unit has indicated that a specific  source of contamination cannot be identified but that  recent rains may have washed non-point (unknown)  effluent down into the water. Two treatment plants  are located in the affected Howe Sound area, one at  Langdale ferry terminal and one at Gibsons.

Two  examples of the ongoing debate  have surfaced recently.  The first took place in that  microcosm of the Coast, Halfmoon  Bay where some of the long-  established residents of the  Redrooffs Road area have expressed  the understandable desire to see the  historic Redrooffs Trail remain  open as a public thoroughfare.  On the other side there are a  number of newly arrived residents  with property and new homes along  the old trail who would like to see  the path closed to the public in order  to protect what they perceive to be  their right to privacy.  The property owners along the  trail surely knew it was a public trail  before Ihey purchased the land and  built homes. After all, the trail has-  been in use since 1887 and has long  been recognized by the Highways  Department as a public  thoroughfare. Hopefully an accommodation will be struck between  trail walkers and property owners  whereby the walkers will respect the  privacy of the owners and take care  not to litter adjacent property, and  the owners will learn to respect the  walkers' rights to use the trail.  , The second example of the same  old song and dance was seen at last  Wednesday's public hearing over  the proposed by-law change away  from the concept of averaging lot  sizes in development projects to  allow smaller lot sizes than currently  permitted.  At the meeting 20 representatives  of the development community put  forward their cases, insisting the  averaging concept be maintained.  Their rationale, interestingly  enough, was that removal of the  averaging concept would "do irreparable harm to the little man"  pricing the poor fellow right out of  the market. Mind you, these were  representatives of the same industry  that was making money hand over  fist last year when property values  were skyrocketting. We wonder how  many of the 'little men' they were  concerned about then.  The regional board staff has been  working on eliminating averaging  because it leads to spot  developments which are very expensive to service long after the  developer has taken his profits and  departed the scene.  Certainly these will not be the last  of the continuing conflicts between  those who seek orderly development  and the retention of as much of the  natural charm of the area as possible and those whose sole motivation  is maximization of personal profit.  It is the responsibility of the various  local governments to serve as protectors of the wishes of local  residents, while at the same time  allowing reasonable and orderly  development to take place. Some of  the 'little men' who must be considered, already live here.  ���te  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Local man, Roger Skidmore,  was rescued by the Canadian  Coast Guard last week in a  bizarre incident on the high  seas. Skidmore's fish boat sank  and he made his way successfully to another sinking  boat from which the crew had  already been rescued in order to  use the radio.  It may be the first time in  marine history that the Coast  Guard, twice in one day, saved  men from the same sinking  boat.  TEN YEARS AGO  Dear editor:  Does it not provoke doubts In  the minds of the people of Gibsons why prominent  businessmen and council of this  area are going all out In support  of the proposed route by the  Department of Highways? Are  they so gullible as to suppose  they intend to line anyone else's  pockets but their own? I wonder  who owns a great deal of the  property, some recently purchased, along this route?  Why has Sechelt council suddenly become so interested  now, when they did not trouble  themselves to attend any of the  meetings held, to find out why  the opposers of this route feel  as they do?...  15 YEARS AGO  Young vandals, who have  been going the rounds breaking  into homes and creating  damage, used the Women's Institute collage on South Fletcher Road for their latest  depredation.  They vented their vandalism  on taking down the framed  charter of the institute, removing it from the frame and tore it,  and crumpled up the 40-year-old  envelope in which the charter arrived, rendering it useless. Some  sewing was stuffed into stove.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's land assessment  has gone up close to 100 per  cent and improvements assess  ment down a fraction under  seven per cent, according to an  announcement from the provincial assessments department.  This Information was placed  before Sechelt's village council  Wednesday night of last week  and will be the basis for tax collection purposes for 1962. The  overall increase In tax assessment amounts to approximately  eight and one half per cent.  25 YEARS AGO  School District No. 46  (Sechelt) reports the following  expenditures for the year ending  December 31,1956:  Administration: $14,273.12. Instruction (including teacher  salaries) $213,221.42. Operation:  $44,778.43. Repairs and  Maintenance: $22,670.27. Auxiliary Services: $4,629.92. Non-  operating Expenses: $752.50.  Debt Services: $29,455.70. Conveyance of Pupils: $44,036.72.  Capital Account: $9,545.03.  Total Expenditure: $383,363.11.  30 YEARS AGO  Liberalism Needs Fence  Repairing.  Sechelt. Even the Liberal  organizations can make  mistakes, according to local  Liberal leader, Capt. Andrew  Johnston.  Speaking at the recent  political meeting In the Legion  Hall, Johnston urged all the  Liberals to set to in mending  broken fences acquired through  the years..  35 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Landing. Purchase of  a site for a consolidated school  at Madeira Park, to accommodate pupils now attending  schools at Irvines Landing,  Pender Harbour, Kleindale and  Silver Sands, is projected by the  school board.  Plans for the new high school  here and for a new elementary  school In Roberts Creek drawn  by architect H. Cullerne, were  accepted for preliminary consideration.  Navy trainers steamed Into port at Gibsons Monday, to give  valuable training for young recuits. Attempting to tie up side by  side during a full-blown Squamlsh was a rigorous test for the  crews, who stayed overnight and sailed out early next morning.  -Vert.

The First Vice-  President was a man  from Desroches, B.C.  His pride of hometown  was a standing joke  among Yukon teachers  because none of them  had ever been there or if  they had, they hadn't  noticed. Until last week,  that was the sum total of  my awareness of Desroches. I knew it existed  and that it was somewhere in the Fraser  Valley.  Perhaps more surprising, at least tome, is the  fact that I was likewise  vague about Harrison  Hot Springs. More surprising because I am a  hotsprings fanatic. I  have lolled with delight  in hot springs in Banff,  Alberta, at Radium Hot  Springs and at Aynes-  worth Hot Springs in  B.C. I am familiar with  both the pools of the  Liard Hot Springs at  Mile 497 of the Alaska  Highway and have slipped out of the changing  room directly into the  Takhini Hot Springs outside of Whitehorse in the  Yukoa at temperatures  of more than forty  below. I even considered  emigrating to New  Zealand at one time  because I heard they had  a lot of hot springs there.  But never, until last  week, had I enjoyed the  'benison of hot water' au  naturel at Harrison Hot  Springs, just a couple of  hours from my home..  The twin catalysts of  my discovery of the  Fraser Valley were Coast  News contributors and  friends Carl Chrismas  and Peter Trower.

While inflation of prices  has attracted so much of  our attention, we have  hardly noticed the inflation of language that has  accompanied it. First of  all, the government's inability to explain or rationalize the current rate  of inflation has resulted  in a kind of newspeak  approach to announcing  new government programs. The rich diversity  of obscure terminology  issuing forth >from  government spokesmen  is so baffling as lo defy  logic.    . (  Furthermore, as prices  continue to rise, those  advertising goods for  sale al new inflated  costs, have also found it  necessary lo create a new  language lo mask the terrifying prospect of actually having lo pay so  much for so little.  What we apparently  need is someone to  debug the language of  government bureaucrats  and merchandizers. To  debug, means to analyse  a message and then  rephrase it in language  everyone can understand. These debuggers  could be hired from the  ranks of unemployed  English professors and  as long as they were forced to work long hours  for little pay, these people could cut a lot of the  red tape currently plaguing the country.  The first place these  debuggers should look is  among the ranks of the  worst buggers of all, the  real estate advertisers  and official government  spokesmen. A typical little debugging job in real  estate advertising might  go something like this:  Dear Debugger,  Please tell me what the  following real estate  advertisement means:  "Charming, rustic cottage set in magnificent  rural environment. Ideal  for small investor, adjacent homesite may be  sold for initial investment. Additional financing available."  Yours truly,  Confused.  Dear Confused,  The word "charming"  means the house is under  750 square feet, has one  bedroom, a kitchen and  dining room combined  and no entrance hall.  "Rustic" means no running water" and an  outhouse not less than 50  feet from the back door.  "Cottage" implies the  place is more than 30  years old, has no insulation and no storage  space. "Rural environ  ment" by itself would  suggest an impassable  dirt driveway, but I  would be concerned  about the word  "magnificent" as this  usually suggests you will  have to blast at least 100  yards of rock to gain access to the house.  "Ideal for small investor" is a real estate  term which means you  must have an annual income of at least $40,000  to purchase this home.  "Adjacent homesite may  be sold, etc..." means  you will have to sell at  least half the property  before you can raise  enough for a down payment. '  Finally, "Additional  financing available"  means that unless you  can secure a very large  second mortgage, you I  can forget it.  Yours truly, I  D.B.  Obviously the debugger would have to be independent of government control or it  wouldn't be long before  bureaucrats were putting  such talent to use making  messages more obscure  than they already are.  Some of the most  obscure messages al-'  ready come from our  public servants. Let's see  what a debugger could  do wilh ihis:  "The Ministry of  Truth, Light, Happiness,  Granola and Wheatgerm  is proud to announce a  unique, multiphase program development project designed to promote ���  public understanding of  the normal wage . and '  price growth necessary  for a healthy economy.  The primary phase of the  projeci will involve a  cognitive awareness  enhancement substructure designed for persons  currently at the post  educational-career interface."  ���  As any good debugger  could tell you, this  message means'that the  government is so worried  about the number of  young unemployed people in the country that it  is going to set up work  camps to get them off  the streets, before theyi  start a revolution.  Bugging a message is  caused by one of two  things, either the person  bugging the message  doesn't know what he's  talking about, or the  message is so unfavourable that it has to  be bugged to be accep- ^  table. fi  Debuggers are becom-j  ing a necessity in the;  Brave New World of  newspeak, because  without them, nobody  would ever be able to  figure out what the buggers were trying to say.  itaj�� mm  Letters to the Editor  Taxpayer says he's fed up  Editor:  Al ihe lasl meeting of  the Board of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, the present  chairman of the Public  Utilities Committea  stated very clearly, upon  being questioned about  an accounting for the  scrap pipe ends and cuttings, that the iron pipe  was used as reinforcement for concrete and  the copper was used lo  pay for a Christmas Parly for the employees!  in my opinion both  answers require further  clarification. That the  iron pipe is used for reinforcement in concrete  doesn't make any sense  at all since all this will  do, is leave bloody great  gaping hollows all over  the place. Further lo  this, doing the above is  in direct contravention  to the National Building  Code, which stipulates  that reinforcing steel  rods shall be used.  From ihis, then, I can  only come to the conclusion lhat ��� ihis Board  operates under two  separate sets of rules  -One for the Works  Dept., where they may  do as they wish, and one  for the many local  builders and developers  where ihe letter of the  law must prevail.  As io the copper cuttings being used for  Christmas parties, I can  only say lhat once again,  as a taxpayer, I gel stuck  for the bill. When in hell  is the Governmenl - in  this case, local, setting  up a party for the taxpayers? Since 1967 then,  we have been paying for  Christmas parties to  which we were not invited!  1 for one don'l agree  with either of the  answers given, and feel it  is long past the time  when public servants  "ride free".  I, among many others  are unhappy - very  unhappy, and the time is  ncaring quickly when we  will say - "We have had  enough of your High  Flying Indifference".  Yours truly,  J.E. Belanger  Gibsons, B.C.  Shroud worthy of discussion  Editor:  Re Mrs. Webb's article in The Press on the  subject of the Shroud of  Christ. The information  she gives is impressive  but I then found myself  trying to recapture the  scene in practical terms.  I cannot for the life of  me imagine that in the  midst of the terror and  turmoil of the apocalyptic Friday that any of  'the faithful' would have  been indiscreet enough  or had the courage to  tarry for as long as that  ritualistic operation  would have taken, in the  presence of Roman  Soldiery with orders not  to let that Body out of  their sight. Much more  realistic would be a quick  and terrified wrapping of  what Hell and its minions had left of the  Sacred Body of Christ,  in one big whole piece of  cloth - whatever! - then  hustling off to the tomb,  laying it in, rolling the  stone and getting to heck  out of there and the  Roman Predencel  I do not believe in the  authenticity of the  Shroud but for another  reason, namely, the  physical impossibility of  the thing, and the lack of  any sufficiently good or  valid reason why God  would work a miracle in  its regard. When Christ  took His physical  presence away from our  ken, He was merely confirming what He had  told His followers many  times; what would be important henceforth,  would be His Living  Presence in the spiritual  body of His Church.  God might look compassionately on a very  beautiful human sentiment for sacred things  and memories but I think  that in this case He  would consider that it  could take the emphasis  off the much more important lesson to be  learned.  Maybe somebody will  have still further insights. It is a subject  worth discussing.  Yours truly,  (Miss) A.M. Martin  P.O. Box 126,  Gibsons, B.C.  VON 1V0  A shared poem  Editor:  1 have a poem that I  would like to share with  the readers of the Coast  News. It is a special  poem for Valentine's  Day.  Seasons of Love  All seasons are seasons  of love, from fall to  winter; from spring to  summer, all seasons are  seasons of love.  The   fiery  colours  of  autumn are the fiery colours of love.  In the icy winter  wonderland the silent  beauty is the sound of  love.  In the spring the awakening of all the land is the  renewal of love.  In the summer,  children's laughter is the  laughter of love.  Frances Sawers  Support appreciated  Editor:  On behalf of the  Sechell and District  Chamber of Commerce,  we would like to thank  everyone who contributed to make our  Rockwood Lodge Raffle  such a great success.  The support we received from your paper was  very much appreciated.  Yours sincerely,  Peter Bandi  President  and  Morgan Thompson  Past President  Test drive the car  that Motor Ttend says  will out-accelerate  a Porsche 928  THE NEW  FORD MUSTANG 302 GT  Editor:  In reply to Mr. Seigo's  letter "Canst News"  January 25, 1982 "Bilingualism opposed".  Without getting into  hysterics and calling individuals bigots, let's examine some Of the  reasons people are  becoming disillusioned  with Ihe process of bilingualism.  Canada has never in  all her history become so  divided as during the  past eight to ten years  that our "Prime Minister  of Eastern Canada" has  conducted  a  love-hate  relationship   with   the  Premier   of   Quebec  (Levesque). During this  time they have succeeded  in   transforming   an  English-speaking nation  with one bilingual pro-.  vince into a bilingual na-;  tioii Willi one French-:,  only speaking province.  It would appear that  "French Canadians" or  Quebecois, who are at  present     governing  Canada   federally  and  who   initialed   bilingualism   in   the  first  place, will not tolerate it  in their own province or  make a sincere effort lo  enter into the spirit of  bilingualism with the rest  of the nation as a whole.  Canadians have in the  past   recognized,   considered, and adjusted to  Quebec's feelings in her  relations with the rest of  Canada, by the elimina-  :ion of our old Union  flag,  traditional  names  and institutions, all for  the sake of national unity. Is it any wonder people are becoming disillusioned?  The young "French  Canadian" RCMP Officer, in question has no  icontrol ovef,where he is  . posted in Canada. Wei  hope he is received into  the community in a belter manner than some  Canadians are received  in Quebec.  L.W. Higgs,  ��� Sechell  Closure  protested  Editor:  We protest the closure  of the Redrooffs Trail at  Halfmoon Bay by property owners who have  fenced across the trail.  This public trail follows,  the seashore to the footbridge across Halfmoon  Bay Creek. The treil has  been used by the public  for many years and Was  in its* before development took place along  the waterfront. If this  trail is not re-opened it  will be one more instance  of the public being  denied access to the  waterfront.

Commercial:  have you ever wondered  how ii can affect your  life? I had a recent experience that made me  think twice about how it  can intrude upon your  everyday thoughts and  disrupt your regular  practice. I dare bet a  similar thing has happened to you.  A couple of weeks  after Christmas, 1 was  looking in my local store  for my usual oven  cleaner. My oven was  especially dirty; as this is  a job 1 hate worse than  - it-  to  pick up my regular  brand, a familiar female  voice said, "This is a job  for Mr. Muscle". I  thought I must be going  mad; I must need a holiday; I'm hearing voices.  Could be wafer on the  brain; better quit sitting  in the hot tub from now  on.  Iw*p  I quickly checked to  see if I was being filmed  on Candid Camera, or  Peter had a trick advertising gimmick working  in the cleaning section.  No, that wasn't it. 1  grabbed a bottle of "Mr.  Muscle" and pushed it  into my shopping cart.

At  least I didn't get  "Janitor in the drum". I  can't stand that commercial.  Going through the  check-out counter, 1  reassured myself with the  idea it would do a faster  and better job. It didn't.  Not only did it cost  more, but Ihe minute my  eagle-eyed husband saw-  it, he said, "couldn't  resist the T.V. advertising, eh?"  I hate being caught.

Al considers that execution is an act of  violence,, and violence  tends to provoke  violence. The imposition  and infliction of the  death penalty is brutalizing to all who are involved in the process. It has  never been shown to  have a special deterrent  effect. Execution is ir  revocable and can be inflicted on the innocent.  AI affirms that abolition of the death penalty  is imperative for the  achievement of declared  international standards.  AI calls upon nongovernmental organizations, both national and  international, to work  collectively and individually to provide  public information  materials directed  towards the abolition of  the death penalty. All  governments to bring  about the immediate and  total abolition of the  death penalty. Al also  calls upon the United  Nations unambiguously  to declare that the death  penalty is contrary to international law.

The Planning  Committee was still in  effect and would continue to meet until the  library was completed to  its satisfaction.

Evidently it was  welcome news that you  don't have to be a  Legion member to come  to the Thursday night  crib tournaments. There  was a record crowd of  nine foursomes of crib-  bage and three tables of  bridge last week.  It meant big pots for  Dee Wright and Ernie  Johnson, who were first  and second respectively.  Dave Richardson won  the hidden prize and  Billie Rodgers got the  booby prize.  In bridge, Elsie Des  Lauriers and Evelyn  Mclnnis were first, Jean  Coyle and Marie Mac-  Pherson second and Flo  and Ron McSavaney  won the consulation  prize.  There are crib and  bridge every Thursday  nighl at the Roberts  Creek Legion, lt starts  right at 8 and with the  big crowd it takes a while  to get organized, so get  there early. Everybody is  welcome.  Privy portal.  It's Alex Ritchie's gift  to posterity - he's such a  privacy buff. At his insistence, the men's  washroom at the Legion  now has an inner door.

The litest haircuts  Full make-up application  and now - ear-piercing  From the Fire Department  Chimney fires hazardous  Fire Safety Tlp�� from your  Volunteer Fin Department.  Chimney fires are  caused by the burning of  creosote from the inside  of the chimney. A  crackling sound can  often be heard at the  beginning of the fire,  and as the intensity of  the fire rises, the flue  pipe will probably glow  red and a tall plume of  flames and sparks can be  seen rising from the top  of the chimney. The flue  pipe will almost certainly  become hot enough to ignite any combustible  material, should any be  within a few inches of  the pipe. Even the  chimney may become  hot enough to ignite any  combustible material  which might be in contact with it. If there are  any loose bricks, cracks,  or holes in the mortar,  fire and sparks may issue  forth and the sparks and  cinders shooting out of  the top of the chimney  may ignite the roof of  the building and any  other     combustible  material within several  hundred feet on the  leeward side.  How does one combat  a chimney fire?  Call the fire department, alert all members  of the household, and  then fight the fire  yourself. The most effective way to suppress a  chimney fire is to limit its  air supply. In a relatively  air-tight stove, this may  be accomplished by closing all drafts and  dampers. Chimney openings may be plugged by  covering them with  metal sheet or stuffing  them with a wet blanket.  While the fire is in progress, and for some time  thereafter, careful attention should be paid to  the attic and the walls  adjacent to the chimney.  Do chimney fires  usually result in a house  fire?  No. A properly  designed and maintained  chimney will withstand a  chimney fire. The only  potential hazard is the ignition of the building's  roof or surroundings due  to sparks and burning  embers coming out of  the top of the chimney.  The inside of the  chimney should be  carefully examined for  any damage from the  chimney fire. Some people start chimney fires  frequently as a means of  cleaning the chimney;  thus, they have a number  of small chimney fires in  favourable weather conditions instead of a large  intense fire possibly in  unfavourable conditions. This is not,  however, a recommended method of cleaning a  chimney.  vi  Women and  the law course  Who needs to know  the law? You do.  lt is sad, but true  -what you don't know  can hurt youl Women  and The Law is a four-  week course designed to  familiarize ladies with  the Canadian legal  system and family law in  particular. Separation,  divorce, child custody,  marriage and common-  law contracts, are explained in everyday  language by Canada's  expert on family law,  Vancouver lawyer Diana  Davidson.  The Saturday sessions  beginning February  13th, are free, with a  very nominal cost (about  $4) for reading  materials. Davidson,  who is the founder and  president of the Vancouver People's Law  School, has a personable  style, combining legal expertise with common-  sense and a sense of  humour.  People's Law School  courses are spreading  throughout B.C. via  video-tape and Davidson  makes use of video-tapes  in her lectures. Interviews and case histories  come alive, illustrating  textbook cases. Davidson stresses the everyday  legal problems women  come into contact with.  At the same time, she  unravels legal jargon, explaining how the Canadian courts work and  how B.C. law, particularly family law, is  dynamic, ever-changing  and more progressive  than that in other parts  of Canada.  This course contains  important material for  anyone who has ever had  arguments with a partner  regarding child maintenance payments, dividing  property and assets upon  separation, child visiting  and custody battles. It  clearly describes  women's rights and how  best to tackle the legal  system to ensure those  rights.  It provides important  information even for  those persons who have  had no use for such information. As Davidson  says; "The information  is a good preventative  measure - it will protect  you from making costly  mistakes. It's like taking  along a parachute when  you go up in an  airplane."

The  picture was Aimed entirely in West Germany  in the summer of 1961.  Cagney, perfectly cast,  plays C.P. McNamara, a  blustering, no-nonsense  Coca Cola executive.  Totally eschewing the  low-key approach of his  Halsey portrayal, he  rampages across the  screen with the energy of  a much younger man.  The plot involves his efforts to transform his  daughter's lover, a scruffy, German beatnik into  a suitable husband. The  pace never slackens and  the laughs come thick  and fast. Critics called it  one of the funniest comedies in years.  Somewhere during the  course of making the  film, Cagney walked  from a darkened sound-  Pages froi.. ..  Peter Trower  ij\ j e-Ljor,  stage into the sunlight  and made a momentous  decision. He was  through with films for  good. The subsequent  success of One, Two,  Three, did nothing to  change his mind. He was  through and that was  that.  For the nexl twenty  years, Cagney lived in  seclusion on his various  farms and on his yacht.  He raised cows, painted,  wrote poetry and  generally let the world go  hang. The tough little  thespian had paid his  dues many limes over  and he seemed determined to devote the rest of  his life to quieter pursuits.  Cagney kept a very  low profile during these  years, sufacing only occasional to honour old  friends like Edward G.  Robinson or promote the  ��  ��  ******   For Tim., and Prlc.

A  few years ago, he was  prevailed upon to attend  a special Hollywood dinner in tribute to his  work. A veritable  who's-who of celebrities  paid homage to the  unassuming actor and  Cagney himself made a  modest and moving  speech. But it contained  not the slightest hint of  any comeback plans.  Thus it was with great  surprise and pleasure I  learned last year that  Cagney was returning to  the screen after a twenty-  year hiatus in the long-  delayed fim version of  E.L. Doctorow's unique  novel, Ragtime. The film  was duly completed in  England and as its  Christmas release-date  approached, the papers  began to bristle with  Cagneyana. An excellent T.V. documentary  presented a recent interview with the legendary  actor, plus cuts from his  most memorable Alms.  Included, were a few tantalizing scenes from the  new film. "Walker!"  clipped Cagney in that  inimitable voice, "We  have the fire-chief for  you!".  Cagney, showing the  better part of his eighty-  one years, confided in  the interview that he was  returning to work under  doctor's orders as  therapy for a diabetic  condition. One would  like to think that a certain nostalgia for the  New York of his early  youth in which Ragtime  is set, had something to  do with it too. Whatever  the reason, James  Cagney was back.  1 had react. I  ' eccentric ariiJ  book, some years earlier.  Whetted by the clips and  anticipating something  mildly cataclysmic, my  good lady and I went to  see the film on the day it  opened. She is not much  of a Cagney buff, but I  suppose my enthusiastic  prattle had led her to expect something pretty  special too.  Much to my chagrin  and disappointment,  neither of us particularly  liked the film. Certainly  the production captured  the period to a tee. And  certainly there were effective moments. But  long stretches of the film  seemed to drag and the  actions of many of the  characters seemed unreal  and contrived. What  worked in Doctorow's  sprawling novel appears  overblown and faintly  silly on the big screen.  The tone of the film  wavers uncertainly between comedy and tragic  drama, but some of the  serious scenes are laced  with inadvertent humour. A Barney Fife-  type character who has  made an idiot of himself  throughout much of the  film, smears his face  with soot, dons a hood  and inexplicably joins a  group of early black  militants. The result is  more ludicrous than  moving.  w I  EVER]  RIDAf  Between 0:00 p.m. and ��:00 p.m.  Magfc MifBhroom 9j|reoShop  rill Presi  fll TOP V*m  Jf the wi  For thejlow, Uogv Price  each  Magic Mushroom  Stereo Shop|  In the Dock, Sechelt 885-2522  Except for a very brief  appearance near the  beginning, Cagney does  not enter the action until  the final quarter of the  film. Even in old age, he  is still a commanding  presence. As a vaguely  sinister police chief, he  nearly manages to save  the day.

Feb. 19th & 20th  Members &  Guests Welcome Through  One I  Scouts honour  by Bob Hunter  At the risk of causing  Lord Baden-Powell to  turn over in his grave, I  must confess that once,  when I was a Boy Scout,  ' I cheated.  Wait. Don't turn away  in disgust. Fate intervened. I was punished.  You'll love the story.  It is set in The Fifties.  I had risen through the  ranks of the 4th Winnipeg Boy Scout Troop  to become Leader of the  Coyote Patrol.  That meant there were  at least five other kids 1  could boss around. It  was the first time in my  life I'd been able to boss  anyone. 1 mean, if 1 said  they had to stand at attention for half an hour,  they had to do it.  .   Power. Wow.  They had to salute me,  I too. Of course, I had to  salute a lot of other people. But it wasn't too  bad. The Boy Scout  salute was like an early  peace sign. And it is  amazing how many  Scouts from the Fifties  went on to become hippies...  The Coyote Patrol liked to win, by the way.  ���We won almost all the  games. And after a  while, we got addicted to  being Ihe top patrol.  ' The day came when a  ��� gigantic gathering of  some 400 Scouts from all  over Western Canada  and the Mid-West States  was due to happen at a  'campground south of  Winnipeg.  Well, this was our  !. home turf.  .'-'All during the gathering, called a Camporee,  -Patrols would be judged  on their skills at building  stockades',' tables,  -latrines, chairs, swings,  -anything and everything.  The more things you  built, the better your  .chance of winning the  award as Best Patrol.  1 Now here was what  : really appealed to me:  >The Leader of the Best  -Patrol would be given  .the award by the  'Governon-General of  -Canada, and would get  to make a speech to the  assembled throng of  tScouts.  Whew.  To make a grotesque  story of vanity and lust  for acclaim short, I hit  upon a scheme. Every  weekend, for a month in  advance of the Camporee, the Coyote Patrol  secretly met at the camp  site.  Bringing along our  Boy Scout Instruction  Manuals, we built  perfect stockades and  tables and chairs and all  sorts of other fancy outdoors gadgets that consisted of bits of wood  lashed together with  twine.  Then we hid all the  pieces in the bush. Out  motto was "Be  prepared", wasn't it?  Come the day of the  Camporee, we loafed  around our tent while  400 other Scouts furiously chopped and whittled  and knotted.  We waited until dark,  then darted into the  forest, hustled our  prefabricated materials  back lo our spot and  assembled it all in the  dark.  Guess who won the  prize as Best Patrol?  Right on.  I was really looking  forward to the big moment when I would get to  speak unto the assembled Scouts. But the last  night of the Camporee, it  snowed.  And instead of getting  a good night's sleep,  snug in my sleeping bag,  1 kept my patrol awake  all night, telling jokes  and yakking excitedly  about our brilliant tactics. It wasn't until first  light that I nodded off  'briefly.  When I awoke, I had  laryngitis. Couldn't utter  a squekk.  I had to send one of  my Patrol members to  accept the prize and  make the speech, shake  hands with the  Governor-General, and  generally be the hero of  the day.  Well, I learned a  lesson out of that, I'll tell  you: Never stay up talking all night if you have  to make a speech the  next day.  It's the truth. Scout's  honour!  Fitness expert, Morley Wiseman.  Continuing Education  offers fitness workshop  The popularity of  physical fitness is increasingly evident in  organized groups and in  individual activities  throughout the Sunshine  Coast. This current trend  often emphasizes the  relatively easy aspects of  fitness, cardiovascular  capacity. More comprehensive strength and  flexibility is left underdeveloped, at the expense of our general  well-being.  Morley Wiseman's fitness techniques ultimately are aimed at both  mind and body, and  originate with his concerns for eliminating the  stress and discomfort  usually associated with  strenuous movements.  This 'Renaissance' concern for development of  the whole person is evident in Wiseman's personal interests as painter,  sculptor, writer, dancer,  choreographer and student of internationally  renowned Kinesiologist,  Dr. Moshe Feldendrais.  Wiseman first .discovered Feldendrais during the early '70's when  his work as artistic direc  tor of Ihe Vancouver's  Ballet Horizons brought  him into contact with the  tant contact with the  whole spectrum of injuries and strains common to a ballet company. Wiseman derived  his fitness techniques  from Feldendrais' body  awareness methods  which were known to  remarkably reduce pain  and tension with  minimal movement.  This workshop is an  opportunity to pursue  general interests in well-  being, and expand personal resources by coordinating your psychic  and physical energy. A  wide variety of people,  including dancers,  athletes and people with  physical conditions such  as plastic joints will find  this workshop relevant  to specific concerns.  Enrollment is limited to  20 participants and the  $18 fee must be prepaid.  Pre-registration is necessary before February  19th. Call Continuing  Education at 885-3512  for information about  this February 27th  workshop in creative  fitness.  Arts Council  sponsors  film  series  On February 17th and  18th a pair of unusual  documentaries will be  shown on the Sunshine  Coast. Both films deal  with the struggle of  underprivileged groups  to gain rights and equality in labour.  "A Time to Rise" is a  B.C. made film about  immigrants from India  and their efforts to integrate inlo our society  and to organize  themselves into a farmworkers union. This film  has won second prize in  the Leipzig Film Festival  in Germany.  "The Willmar 8" tells  the inspiring story of  eight women - bank  workers in the small,  mid-western town of  Willmar, Minnesota.  They were all previously  apolitical, unassuming,  church-going women,  but when a young male  trainee was hired at  almost twice their starting salary, and they  were told: "We're not all  equal, you know", they  formed a union and  started the first bank  strike in the history of  Minnesota.  These two films provide a unique look at  these groups' drive for  equality and fulfillment.  The February 17th  showing will be at the  Arts Centre in Sechelt at  8 p.m.  The February 18th  showing will be at  Madeira Park Elementary at 7:30 p.m.  Admission is $3.00,  OAP& students $1.50.

Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Mazes and Monsters by Rona Jaffe, Delacorte  1981  The games craze, its relationship to life and  the stresses of the young, comprises the theme  of Mazes and Monsters.  Four exceptionally intelligent, but troubled,  university students relieve their tensions in an  intricate game of their own creation. To play,  they enter a world of fantasy in which they  adopt names, assistants and weapons to fight  the dragons and monsters of a maze.  The players: Kate, Jay Jay, Daniel and Robbie, are caught in a personal maze, also.  Children of the rich, their real-life values are  i made askew by pre-occupied parents and uncaring peers.  At first, the game is played in a dormitory  room made empty by shifting their belongings.  Later the site is changed, when Robbie, the controller of the game, finds an abandoned and  dangerous cave in the locale. The other players,  somewhat reluctantly, go along with Robbie's  plans and are soon avidly involved in the real  maze. There is impending danger at every turn.  As Robbie continues to increase the complexities of the game, the others gradually lose their  interest. Matters of vital concern in their own  lives are more important. For Robbie, however,  the game is all. He loses touch with reality and  soon disappears. When the police and his  friends finally locate him, he has gone completely mad.  They find Robbie in New York. The mazes  and monsters of the metropolis are as real lo  him as Pardieu the Holy Man, who goes about  doing good in search of the treasure.

PROPER DRESS REQUIRED  (No Blue Jeans or T-Shirts. please) 8  Coast News, February 15,1982  Coast Views  Winter fishing aboard  "Alibi Wahoo"  by Vene Parnell  There were 14 of us, in  total. Some of us dressed  in arctic survival gear  (smart), others simply  dressed for a casual  winter outing. There was  one lady in spanking-  white runners, bought  especially for her first  fishing excursion. Some  of us knew what a  fishing rod was; some of  us didn't.  The snow seemed  relentless, dripping sog-  gily from leaden skies.  The gulls, eagles and cormorants circled close by,  searching the gray, choppy water for a meal, sensing lhat our human  failures might mean their  success.  "What was an Ontario  farmer's daughter doing  out here?" I was silently  asking  myself,  Gambler   Island   Preservation   Society   displays  grievances at Vancouver Boat Show.  Gambier society  ts mine  fights  by Vene Parnell  Since the first mining claim stake was driven on  Gambier Island in 1978, a group of determined  citizens called the Gambier Island Preservation  Society have fought private enterprise and government every step of the way to protect the island for  recreation.  "It is expected the battle will be taken to the  courts, soon," Society director Elspeth Armstrong  told the Coasl News. Open pit mining development  to remove copper and molybdenum by 20th Century  Energy Corporation contradicts the Islands Trust  Act of 1974 which states that the Gulf and Howe  Sound Islands will be preserved by the provincial  government for recreation. The mining company also  contradicts the Gambier Island zoning by-law passed  in 1979 and Community Plan of 1977 by proposing  an industrial land use for rurally designed lands.  Armstrong, a former Islands trustee who lives in  Vancouver and has a summer home on Gambier  Island, said the society has "several thousand"  memberships and has received support from the Ciiy  of North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Vancouver,  Burnaby, Port Moody, Richmond, Port Coquitlam,  Lions Bay, the District of North Vancouver and  would like the support of Sunshine Coast communities as well.  "Although the situation is at a stalemate now,  because the drop in metal prices has halted further  exploration on Gambier Island, we still want to get  the mining company out now," said Armstrong.  "According to the Mineral Act, 20th Century Corp.  has until 1984 to develop its claims, but we want  them to rescind those claims now so recreational  facilities can be developed on Gambier Island.  "20th Century Corp. has staked out all the Crown  Land on Gambier Island, 8,600 acres, and has effectively withdrawn it from public use at the cost of  $3.50 per acre year year.  "This 8,600 acres, three-quarters of the island, is  the largest block of Crown Land remaining in Howe  Sound. We are proposing that the government put in  wharves, marine parks and hiking trails. If 500  moorage spots were developed around the island for  pleasure-boaters, the government could earn  $500,000 annually.  "There is no other large island so strategically  located for use by lower mainland residents that is  still undeveloped and can provide boaters and hikers  with a true wilderness environment.  "We are fighting for the preservation of a  wilderness heritage for future generations and an important recreation area for thousands of British Columbians. Mining the island would be an irretrievable  loss," said Armstrong.  fingers numbed instantly  around my camera shutter and I struggled  against the bobbing motion of the boat on the  slippery wooden deck.  I was a guest on a day  long fishing charter trip  aboard the sleek Alibi  Wahoo, an ageless  elegant cruiser. Her  owners and our most  gracious hosts, Ross and  Susan Lane, a pair of  recently transplanted  prairie chickens  themselves, behaved as if  they had been born on a  fishing boat, instead.  Ruggedly handsome  Ross, a former oil field  consultant from Alberta  is a knowledgeable  boater and outdoorsman  and his very attractive  brunette wife Susan,  raised on a farm near  Calgary, has to be one of  the world's best cooks.  As we munched and  wined our way through  one elegant hors  d'ouevres after another,  plenty of hot buttered  flowing rum kept our  hopes and spirits  bouyant. Almost as if he  had planned it, "birthday boy" Bruce reeled in  the largest catch of the  day,' a sleek 7 lb. spring  salmon that gave him a  good run twice around  the deck before it was  netted.  We obtained close-up  looks at other species  such as small cod and a  baby flounder and a  determined cormorant  fought Graham for a  small spring by diving  under and trying to grab  it off the hook. Never  discouraged, Graham  simply turned the stereo  up louder for his  favourite tune, The  Rodeo Song, and sang  along as he cast a fresh  herring.  The wind picked up  and whistled through the  gap between Gibsons  bluff and Keats Island;  but inside, our toes were  toasting while we munched on Susan's secret  recipe, hot "shrimp and  mushroom gloop" served on scallop shells,  along with fresh shrimp  and toasted garlic bread.  Despite a generator  breakdown, which  meant the furnace wasn't  working that day, a  heater in the wheelhouse  and Susan's gas stove in  the galley provided  enough warmth to  recover from the chill  outside.  The most vigilant  fisherman aboard was  the Lanes' beautiful  three year old golden  Lab named Gibson.  Satisfied with a bone, he  was often first to pick up  a nibble on one of the 10  lines over the side and  even dived in for a  refreshing dip as if to say  "it's nothing, folks".  Ross and Susan were  ideal hosts, constantly  tending to all our comforts while being most  sociable and helpful.  Ross taught beginners,  checked the lines, helped  net the fish, cleaned and  wrapped them, ensuring  that not a moment of  fishing time was wasted.  Susan filled all requests  for a variety of liquid  refreshments and served  such delicacies as an-  tipasto, shrimp balls,  breaded spareribs,  shrimp puffs, hot  homemade cinnamon  and blueberry muffins  and brewed hot rum toddies by the hour, carrying them to the shivering  fishermen at their stations outside. All this for  $65 a day, food, drink  and bait extra.  As the official  photographer, even 1  began to know the meaning of the expression,  "the bracing salt sea air"  and breathed it in deeply, marvelling that the  fresh air seemed to  restore my circulation  and made me feel,  warmer. \  Our home for the day,  the 58 foot ten ton Alibi  Wahoo, built on the style  of the rum-runners of  the 20's, carries with it  the rumoured mysteries  of an association with  the prohibition. In Vancouver's Coal Harbour  circles, stories hint that  this sleek beauty, built in  1928 and named Wahoo,  which means a long  slender tuna-like fish  ouiraced Coast Guard  gunboats carrying $1  million cargoes along the  Eastern seaboard* before  she was brought West by  American Bill Hamilton,  builder of Malibu Lodge  at Princess Louisa Inlet  in 1944.  Re-named the Malibu  Wahoo, she was  remodelled at the Vancouver Shipyards into an  elegant mohogany-  panelled cruiser, capable  of sleeping six comfortably in two staterooms,  one fore and one aft, a  large galley-dinette, two  heads, one with a shower  and a comfortable main  saloon in the  wheelhouse. A sundeck  was added in 1972 when  she was re-named Alibi  Wahoo.  The double-planked  mahogany hull once raced at over 30 knots with  twin surplus WW 1  Liberty engines. Lane  now reaches top speed at  20 knots with huge twin  671 G B "Jimmy"  diesels and can cruise efficiently at 13 knots using only six gallons of  fuel an hour.  Not a bad way for a  guy to promote his  fishing charter business:  a day of fine fishing  aboard an historical  boat, carrying on a fine  tradition. After all, who  could resist such a charming little rum-runner?  Alibi Wahoo skipper Ross Lane, right, Isn't to blame for the size of ihe catch.  He does everything but talk the fish into biting when he takes a winter fishing  charter out from Gibsons harbour. - * mfu~�� r >,�����  AUTOPLAN  NOTARY PUBLIC  SuH(MMwtAgeKcwJCW.  P.O.

There,  as  I  expected,   wis   the-  unmistakable shape of a  'DC3. There aren't many  DC3's   around   any  longer, but during the  war the Dakotas as we  ���called them,  were the  work horses of the air-  j force,  used mostly as  ,'trobp   carriers   and  ^transports. Besides their  .quota   of   parachute  troops to drop behind  ���ihe lines or.in ��tnoegic  areas after the 1944 invasion  of  Europe,   each  Dakota towed a large  glider with more troops,  supplies  or  equipment  over to France.  In the months  'preceding June 1944 all  'these troops and equip-  ! merit were assembled in  jsoUthwest England,  tanks rumbled along the  (deep shady lanes of  (Devon and Dorset,  jrecpnnaissance planes  (were   stored  in   farm  barn,- or nestled  camouflaged under netting beneath the  hedgerow elms while out  at Western Zoyland an  American Air Force  Squadron with nine  Dakotas waited impatiently for D-Day. I  doubt their commanding  officer knew that they  often terrorized the  neighbourhood when  they took their planes  out for the daily scramble.  To understand the full  impact of their jaunts  you have to visualize the  countryside. Somerset,  south of the Mendip  Hills, is one great flat  plain, now known as  Sedgemoor but once a  great lake and still slightly below sea level. Miles  and miles of flat fields,  criss-crossed with  drainage ditches, the  monotony broken by the  occasional village and  trees, the willows along  the watercourses and  near the village fields  with hedgerow windbreaks. At the western  end, the Zoyland airstrip  and, somewhere in the  centre, Glastonbury Tor,  a mere 600 feet hill, but  an imposing landmark in  all the flat land topped  with an old church tower  and with the ruined Abbey and the little town  clustered round its base.  The Dakotas, out for  an afternoon exercise,  would1 fly in formation,  one behind the other,  low over the plain, zoom  up around the Tor and  then sweep down the  High gtreet at chimney  top level, one. after the  other with a deafening  roar. Leaving the townsfolk, like Tweedledum  and Tweedledee, in a  state of shock as, not one  big black bird, but nine  great shadows blotted  out the sun. I presume it  ��� vtasn't a dally occurrence, but, there were  three occasions when I  witnessed their daredevil pranks, or maybe it  was legitimate buzzing  practise.  Farmers in that part of  Somerset milked their  dairy herds out in the  field from March or  April, as soon as the  fields were dry enough,  until almost Christmas,  and as summer approached, the fields on  the higher ground were  left for hay and the herd  moved into the fields on  the moor.  I'll never forget that  afternoon, the cows  gathered quietly near the  gate; the field sheltered  on the west side by a  hawthorn hedge, grown  to some 15 - 20 feet  which successfully  screened all sight and  sound of impending  disaster. Milking was  proceeding as usual, the  Boss, Bill and I. each  comfortable on our  three-legged stools, our  heads tucked into the  cow's soft flank, lost in  our own thoughts, while  the cows rythmically  chewed their cuds and  the milk made soft  frothy sounds as the  pails filled.  Suddenly, out of  nowhere the first Dakota  roared over our heads  less than 100 feet about  the ground, seeming to  just clear the hedge and  all was commotion. The  cows of course stampeded, milk pails went flying, the Boss, irascible  still from shell shock in  the first war, stood  helplessly shaking his fist  and yelling obscenities  which no one could hear  and the eight other  planes followed-my-  leader out of the blue  with a deafening "roar  and'were gone. I lay in  the grass where I'd landed when Bossie took off  and laughed 'til the tears  ran down my face.  The next time was no  laughing matter for me.  We were horsehoeing  between the rows of turnips and mangolds and  when the Dakotas roared  over the farmhouse, I  had to hang onto a terrified Clydesdale, who  reared, his great feet  flailing. Each time I got  him back on tins ��Qmid,  his feet ofwjwourse  destroying the plants, the  next plane scared him  out of his wits again.

Greek food featured  at new restaurant  "Jokers", a new  restaurant in lower Gibsons featuring traditional Greek food, opened last week, occupying  the facilities previously  used for three years by  Fitzgerald's.  This new venture is a  working partnership of  Joanhie Thompson,  Viktors Kalve and Bonnie Plummer. In the kitchen are Mo Graham  and Allison Wilkins.  The interior has been  remodelled to reflect a  Greek atmosphere. Of  particular interest in the  decor are the stained and  etched glass works of  Viktors and Bonnie. The  restaurant's name has  been laken from a series  of etched glass panels, all  featuring jokers.

Belanger  fights back  Mr. J.E. Belanger of  Park Road, Roberts  Creek, has sent a letter to  the regional board concerning the board's legal  action against Mr. Be-  langer's alleged contravention of by-law 96.  Mr. Belanger, who  operates a steel fabrication business in Roberts  Creek, has been asked to  move his business  because the board  charges that it is in violation of a zoning by-law  which prohibits commercial use of land in the  area. ,  In his letter to the  board, Mr. Belanger requests that the board be  equally vigilant in its  prosecution of other  small businesses he  alleges are contravening  the same by-law.  Among the firms named in Mr. Belanger's letter, are 11 small  businesses involved in  such enterprises as towing, excavating, equipment repairs and steel  fabrication.  The board voted to  refer the letter to the  planning staff for further investigation and  reminding members that  the case was sub judice  (in legal hands) chose'not'  to coAiment on the allegations.  New telephone  system for Coast  A new computerized  operator system will be  introduced this year to  speed long distance calling for telephone  customers on the Sunshine Coast and in the  Powell River area.  Ken Crowter, Customer Service Manager for  the region, said the  mechanized operator  switchboards, called  Traffic Service Position  System (TSPS), is a  highly efficient method  of processing operator-  handled calls while  allowing customers to  dial for themselves a  variety of calls which  previously had to be processed by an operator.  These include collect  calls, person-to-person,  credit card, calls billed to  another number and  calls where time and  charges are requested, as  well as direct dialing to  more than 40 overseas  countries.  Computer-assisted  switchboards, which are  based in Vancouver and  New Westminster, will  be placed in service for  telephone customers in  Gibsons on May 4th, at  Port Mellon on May 6th,  and at Sechelt on May  11th. TSPS will begin  serving residents of  Pender Harbour on May  Professional Repair & Service  to your Heating & Plumbing  Equipment  ��� General Sheet Metal  ��� Installation of Heat Pumps, Air Conditioners,  Wood-Oil, Wood-Electric, Wood, Electric and  Oil Furnaces  ��� Plumbing Service & Installations   THOMAS HEATING  Call Now     886-7111  17 Years Enperlcncf  Serving Ihe Sunshine Coasl   sine*' 1%7  Business  Update  Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce  What is the Purpose of  the Chamber of Commerce?  a) To actively explain,  promote and support the  free enterprise system  and democratic principles in order to improve trade, commerce  and the economic social  and human welfare of  the people of British Columbia.  b) To undertake an active leadership role on  behalf of members and  the business community.  c) To actively develop  programs in conjunction  with member Chambers,  aimed at creating a  higher level of economic  awareness at all community, educational and  political levels.  d) To monitor legislation  at all levels of government.  e) To actively encourage  and develop two-way  communication between  the private and public  sectors.  0 To actively improve  the  general  economic  climate.  g) To actively strengthen  and expand membership  in the Chamber of Com-  merce organization.  13th, Black Point on  May 20th and those in  Vananda will have the  service on May 27th.

The  purpose of the meeting  was to exchange ideas  and problems relative to  all residents on the Sunshine Coast.  A major part of the  discussion involved  tourism, how improvements could be  made regarding highways, ferries and parks.  The energetic Margaret Ferguson from  Powell River, seemed to  have an endless supply of  ideas for promoting people to visit our area. The  members seemed to  especially like her idea of  promoting a week on the  Sunshine Coast, with a  different feature or attraction in each community.  A few local problems  were discussed: lack of  camping facilities,  development of beaches,  and things to do seemed  to the major complaint  from tourists, according  to the survey held over  last year with the tourist  bureau. Another meeting  will be held towards the  end of February to  follow up on ideas and  suggestions.     m  In your time of  need... we care.

J Hcn.nn femtu  Elphie's brings  Vancouver to Gibsons  by Bradley J Benson  Sixteen lo twenty-four  hours a day, six days a  week has become the  standard for Graham  Edney, manager of Gibsons new cabaret,  Elphie's, as he wraps up  the details of the club's  $250,000 worth of  leasehold improvements  and breaks in his new  operation, which is now  employing 15 full and  part-time people.  Opened January 21st,  1982, Elphie's, as Edney  puts it "is a piece of  Vancouver in Gibsons"  with the purpose of promoting entertainment  and providing both  alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinking and  dancing five nights a  week. To maintain the  standard of a " nice evening  out"   and  control  rowdiness, Edney has installed a dress code, banning jeans, T-shirts and  runners.  Edney, who has had  years of local band experience himself with the  Penn Kings, is still experimenting with the  selection of music his  cabaret will book. He intends a mix of three  weeks of rock and roll  with one week of soft  rock or "MOR" (middle  of the road) music. So  far, the bands have been  imported, but beginning  in April, local groups  will also get a chance;  already booked are  "Straight Edge" and  "Untouchables".  Elphie's is owned by  GEL Investments Ltd.,  whose three principals  are Giannakos, Edney  and Lacey.  Weeklies offer  best value  Alan Charters of the  Canadian Community  Newspapers Association  reports in the latest issue  of The Publisher, that,  "Daily newspapers dropped three percentage  points in net ad revenues  last year. Weeklies showed a One per cent increase, according to the  Maclean        Hunter  Research Bureau".  This trend may not  seem like much, but it  represents the general  feeling that advertising  dollars spent in your own  community, pay bigger  dividends.  Community press  advertising went' from  $55.6 million in 1971 to  $205 million in 1981.  Ifou could save money and  time tf you come to the  income tax specialists!

' While some of my contemporaries back in  Canada were making up  to $100 per day, working  in ihe shipyard^ and  other industries equally  as important for the successful prosecution of a  war, Ihe most I ever  earned as a Sergeant A  Group (culinary) was  $3.95 per diem. This, of  course, did not include  the allotment made to  my wife back in Vancouver. However, those  war years could not be  written off as wasted  years as 1 learned many  invaluable lessons while  in the Armed Services  and long after the war  was over and finished  wilh, the experiences I  had undergone continued to have a profound and far-reaching  effect when 1 resumed  civilian life.  The mosl important  and beneficial thing I can  think of was that during  those hectic years I  managed lo shake off  and leave behind me  forever an inferiority  complex lhat had  haunted me for as far  back as I can remember.  When I observed (he ineptitude and incompetence of so many  of my associates of  higher rank, I suddenly  woke up to the fact that  perhaps I was not the  crass ignoramus that 1  had imagined myself to  be. Perhaps I did have  something going for me  after all!  Another very important thing that was forced on me was that I had  to learn how to control  myself. Formerly there  had been: occasions  when, giving vent to my  anger, my ungovernable  temper would go completely haywire and not  only was I a menace to  myself but lo those  around me. I learned  somewhat sadly that,  under the disciplines of  Service life, one cannot  be forever in a slate of  ferment and that one has  to exert some control  over one's emotions. It'  was  an  adjustment   in  thinking that was at  times painful and  frustrating but it had to  be made and I am  thankful thai I was able  to make it.  I had known intuitively from the first moment  I clapped eyes on the  s.o.b. that I was going lo  have trouble with  Fit./Li. B. and, looking  back on it now, I am  astonished that it look  almost eleven months  before Ihe volcano  erupted. I am at a loss to  give an accurate description of him, but the one  word that I think mosl  appropriate is "smarmy". How he got Ihe  nickname "Weasel" I  have no idea but he  could alternate between  periods when he appeared ingratiating and  almost human and then  suddenly, without warning, go off half-cocked  over some insignificant  trifle. He was an unpredictable character  and, inasmuch as it was  possible, 1 stayed away  from him. That eventually we had a confrontation was his doing not  mine.  We had had a succession of Sergeants who  for varying lengths of  lime had been in charge  of the cooking opera-;  lions at the Bowling  Green. Some had been  good guys to work with  and some had been hard  to get along with but, inevitably, they had failed  to please either the  "Weasel" or his right-  hand man "Lord Swill".  At the time I am writing  of, we had with us a  Sergeant Burns and I  cannot for the life of me  understand how he  lasted the length of time  he did. That he was or  had been an accomplished cook, well-versed in  the feeding of large  numbers of rnen,,adhere  was no question', bu,t  during the three or fouf  months I knew him he  had never drawn a sober  breath. By this, I do not  mean that he arrived on  duty staggering drunk or  was totally unaware of  what was going on  around him. Rather, I  would describe it as  floating around in an  euphoric daze with a  beatific smile on his face  A Fine Selection of Quality  LAMPS  -Table Lamps, Light Fixtures,  Outdoor Lamps  LAMP REPAIRS  & REWIRING  Kitchen and Small  APPLIANCES  BURGLAR ALARMS  Bill's  Holland  Electric  Ltd.  and a kind word for  everyone he encountered. He exhibited  all the symptoms of an  alcoholic as at times he  shook like a leaf then,  after a brief visit to the  change-room, he would  reappear as benign and  affable as ever.  As I have remarked  before, I am at a loss to  explain why the  "Weasel" or "Lord  Swill" were so slow in  catching on to him but  eventually he, like his  predecessors, was posted  to another station and  we were left temporarily  without a Sergeant.  A few days following  this incident, I had just  commenced my afternoon shift when I was informed that Fll./Lt. B.  wanted to see me in his  office. Wondering what  I had done wrong and  expecting the worst, I  tapped on his door and  was told in the most cordial tone of voice to  enter and take a seat. His  proposal staggered me.  After a brief preamble as  to how he and his W.O.  had been watching me  and were extremely  pleased with my work,  he then proposed that I  take over the kitchen and  assume full charge of all  the operations therein.  In spite of his flattering  offer which I certainly  didn't want, on my enquiring if I would be advanced in rank as befitting my new station in  life, he flew into a tantrum and, in a rage,  ordered me out of his office. Pondering it over  afterwards, I realized  how fortunate I had been  that he had not made it  an order that I take over  as, in Service life, there is  no way, short of a court  martial, that one refuses  to obey an order, as I  well knew many had  tried il with dire consequences.  Anyway, the upshot of  it all was that the very  next morning my name  was on the D.R.O.'s  (daily routine orders) to  report to Ihe M.T. Section where I found that I  was now Corporal in  charge of the ration  truck. With a driver and  two swampers we went  daily to the R.A.S.C.  (Royal Army Service  Corps.) and drew the requisitioned supplies for  distribution to the  various messes in  Bournemouth. This was  the best job I had in all  my years in ihe Air  Force, but it didn't last  long.

Fifteen  members met for the  February meeting at the  home of Helen Milburn  wilh . President Edith  Simmons in the chair.  Betty Kiloh read the  minutes of the Coordinating Council  meeting attended by  herself and Ella Grant.  The ongoing equipment  requirements of St.  Mary's Hospital was  presented to the member  auxiliaries and graphically illustrates the great  necessity and true value  of the volunteer in today's society.  A limited number of  large photographs of  Terry Fox have been  made available and our  Auxiliary is proud to be  able to present a framed  copy, with an inscribed  plaque, to the Hospital.  Perhaps he should be  considered one of history's mosl dedicated  volunteers.  Helen Milburn's main  concern is finding the  best location available  for the great Christmas  specialty item sale to be  held in November.  Already many novel  ideas for these items  were shown which will  provide a wide selection  for buyers to ' choose  from. Willing hands will  be getting into production shortly to assure a  good supply for  ���everyone. Suggestions  and assistance from  Margie Neilson, Vivian  Chamberlin, Doreen  Dockar,   Verna   Trant  and many more proved  the motto "Enthusiasm  Spells Success".

Wayne Rowe  Subject   to   financing  clauses:  Anyone who has had  occasion to purchase real  estate is probably  familiar with the use of  'subject to financing'  clauses which are frequently included in an  offer to purchase. These  clauses are usually inserted for the benefit of  the purchaser so that he  can find the property  that he wants, conclude a  deal with the owner and  arrange the necessary  financing knowing that  the property will not suddenly be sold to someone  else.  One problem with  these clauses is that they  are often so loosely  phrased as to be uncertain in their meaning and  therefore unenforceable  in court. They should be  made as precise as possible in respect of the type  of financing which is required - eg. amount, interest rate, term and so  on. As well, from the  vendor's point of view  there should be a  specified date by which  the financing is to be arranged. Otherwise, the  property may be tied up  right up to the closing  date.  lt will sometimes happen that a purchaser's  financial circumstances  will change for the better  after the agreement has  been made and he will no  longer require the  specified financing. As a  rule he would not be  obligated to obtain the  specified financing but  could instead remove the  'subject to financing'  clause   and   pay   cash.  Sechelt  Police News  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  A fishery lhal recently  lias come inlo prominence in Brilish Columbia is the trap fishery  for sablefish. This varie-  ly whose fancy name is  "anoplopoma fimbria"  was miscalled Alaska  black cod by the  Americans who were trying to create a market for  ihis extraordinarily good  Pacific Coast fish among  ihe codfish-ealing people  of ihe eastern slates.  Sablefish has been  greatly neglected by  British Columbians  because salmon has  always been cheap and  plentiful. Il is a sad facl  lhal a whole generation  of people in Ihis province  have grown up with Ihe  mistaken idea lhal if it  wasn't salmon then it  was not fit lo eat. This  situation resulted in no  local market for fresh  sablefish. However  smoked salmon has  always been popular  since the early explorers  sampled this product  lhat the naiive people  prepared for iheir winter  food supply.  In order lo create a  local market for  sablefish, the fish  packers smoked the  sablefish and added a red  colouring lo it so il  would look like smoked  salmon and with typical  lack of imagination, they  used the American  misnomer "Alaskan  black cod". Sablefish is  a B.C. product and il is  delicious fresh or smoked and I think il should  be promoted under its  proper name and when  smoked il should be  done in ils natural  golden colour and people  should ask for il as such.  The Japanese prize  this fish very highly.  They prefer il fresh, but  if they can't have it in  lhal slate, then il musl be  quick-frozen. They are  very particular about  quality and appearance,  if it isn't number one  ihey don'l want it.  The locally based R &  B Fishing Company has  responded to this  Japanese market and  because the Vancouver  fish packing companies  were nol careful enough  in the way thai they  handled R & B's product, R & B set up its  own packaging facility.  The fish is dressed, quick  frozen and glazed and  carefully slored in the  hold of the fishing  vessel. Al ihe end of the  trip, il is discharged al  the plant, packaged and  shipped directly to Japan  under its own brand  name:  After a three month  closure, the sablefishery  opened on February Isl  and R & B's two fishing  vessels, Ocean Pearl and  La Porsche, are now out  on (he wesl coast,  Halibut fisherman Ray  Kennan of Selma Park is  trying his hand al  sablefishing as skipper  of the La Porsche this  trip. We wish both ships  and all hands fair seas  and good fishing for  1982.  Sea you.  SECHELT RCMP:  On the 4th: An apartment located above the  Peninsula Market in  Davis Bay was broken  into.

V0N3A0  Coast News, February 15,1982  19  However, if the financing clause provided that  the vendor was to provide some of the financing by taking back a  mortgage then the clause  could not be waived  without the consent of  the vendor  On occasion a purchaser may, for the purpose of "flipping over"  for a quick profit, insert  a 'subject to financing'  clause without any intention of trying to obtain  the financing but rather  intending only to tie up  the property while trying  to find another buyer at  a higher price. A 'subject  to financing' clause imposes a duty on the purchaser to use his best efforts to obtain the  specified financing. If it  can be shown that he has  failed to do this then he  will be liable to the vendor for damages.  When the necessary  financing has been obtained, great care is  usually taken to remove  the 'subject to financing'  clause and confirm the  agreement. However, the  same attention to detail  is not always given when  the purchaser is unable  to obtain the necessary  financing.  Some cases have held  that the purchaser must  notify the vendor  (preferably in writing)  that he is unable to obtain the financing. If he  does not do so, then the  'subject to financing'  clause is automatically  removed and the purchaser is bound to complete the purchase. One  should not, therefore,  simply assume that the  matter is at an end.  to gain entry into a sum-,  mer cabin near Ihe  Pender Harbour Hotel.
