 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings Q  B.C. V8V1X4    fan  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  April 19,1993 Volume 47 Issue 16  Sechelt  society  seeks  low-cost  housing  by Stuart Burnside  A small group of Sechelt  residents has taken it upon  themselves to tackle a problem  within their municipality Ihey  view as serious and growing  worse: the lack of quality social  housing.  "There is an incredible need  for low income family housing  in Sechelt," says Nancy Baker  of the non-profit Coast Housing  Society (CHS).  "Right now (Sechelt has)  about a zero per cent occupancy  rate and we need to find places  for people to live."  Baker, along with mayor  Nancy MacLarty, Councillor  Rosina Giles, Dr. Francis  Konopasic and John Osborne  formed the CHS about a year  ago lo get quality social housing built in Sechelt.  The group is currently working with Vancouver architects  in preparing a proposal that  would see a 5 building, 22 unit  development erected on a  undeveloped one-acre North  Sechell lol bordered by Reef,  Trail and Binnacle Avenues.  The proposal will be used to  try to secure provincial funding  for the land purchase and construction ot the project through  BC Housing.  "For all intents and purposes," says architect Brad Tone,  "these will not look like low  income housing.  "There is a lol of stigma  attached to these developments... People have a certain  idea aboul whal they are going  to look like and Ihe kind of  people that are going lo live in  Ihem, so we have lo show that  it is going lo be a fairly  impressive looking group of  units."  Tone said the 22 units would  be made up of single, Iwo three  and four bedroom units. Each  will have its own entrance, carport, and as much southern  exposure as possible.  turn to page 2  A reflective view of Dennis Tupman lecturing brass ensembles Thursday at  Davis Bay's St. John's United Church in preparation for a performance lo  follow.

Joel Johnstone photo  Bypass uncertainty irks neighbours  "'bylane'Seyd  About 70 Elphinstone residents, clearly upset by a possible change in the Gibsons highway bypass roule, packed Ihe  regional district board room  Thursday night lo lell Highways  planners they don't think much  of lhe idea.  While veiled references to  politics between Gibsons Park  Plaza and Sunnycrest Mall hovered over some of Ihe comments, residents of Henry and  Payne roads told highways planner Leigh Martell they don't like  the thought of the highway roule  being changed at the last  minute.  Residents shouldn't have lo  live wilh continuing uncertainty  about Iheir properties, said Jim  Barclay of the Elphinstone Elec-  ' toft" Association"  Steve Holland, a resident of  Henry Road, also called on the  highways departmenl to come  up with long-term planning:  "Slop    all    this   changing it every  five years."  Originally, the  bypass roule was  planned to come  out at Payne Road.  But recently, the         highways departmenl has also been considering  a route that ends further out at  Henry Road, said Martell.  Pari of the reason, he said, is  increased traffic al Payne Road  and a petition of 500 names  objecting to that location.  But residents said they  weren't convinced a new plan  'Stop all this  changing it  evety five years'  - Steve Holland  wasn't being"ma3e'Sehr*i8"fteir  backs and questioned who had  signed the petition.  "The people in this area  should be. the ones to decide  ____________ where this highway's going to  go," said Chuck  Weatherhill of the  Elphinstone Elector's Association.  Residents said  the highways department should  concentrate first on extending  the highway north through  Crown Land, thereby bypassing  residential property and agricultural land on lhe potential Henry  Road route.  "We're concerned very  deeply about intrusions into Ihe  agricultural land reserve," said  Holland, ��*--���-..���  If the Henry Road route is  chosen, the agricultural land  commission will have to grant  permission to take the land out  of the ALR.  Once the survey for Henry  Road is finished, in about one  month, the highways department  will meet with regional directors  and the Town of Gibsons before  presenting their information at a  public meeting, said Martell.  But on Thursday night it was  apparent what at least some of  the response would be to any  change in existing plans.  "You're not changing roads,  you're changing our communities," said area director Jim Gurney.  "That's what the people here  tonight are protesting."  Sechelt artist's work chosen for  Vancouver street banners  by Jane Seyd  Surrounded by paint-splattered surfaces of orange, red and  indigo in his Wesl Sechelt studio, artist Don Jarvis pauses by  one of his recent paintings  "Weather", below a series of  completed banner designs.  The deep blue of a storm  moves onto shore, obscuring the  shadowy form of an island in  the distance, while up close  branches tangle in the wind.  Elsewhere, red and blue  streaks of rain fall in front of a  dark thatch of forest and a fire  flashes on dark-coloured shoreline.  In the banner designs, recently finished by Jarvis for the City  of Vancouver's summer street  banner program, similar elements of rain-soaked west coast  atmosphere and movement are  evident in abstracts of trees,  wind, sun and rain.  "I've been hoping to do these  banners for a number of years,"  says Jarvis, who was chosen by  the Vancouver street decoration  committee in January to produce  a series of designs which go up  all over the city on the May long  weekend.  In the past, Toni Onley, Bill  Reid and Jack Shadbolt have  been among the artists to design  the banners.  "It's something of an honour," says Jarvis. "Also, it's a  rare opportunity to have your  work seen by many more people  than would usually see it."  Many factors go into selecting the artist for the banners  each year, says a member of the  selection committee, but "It's a  very prominent opportunity."  The life forms that  are created with a  brush; it's sort of a  universal language'  -Donjarvis  And in the case of Jarvis, she  says, "The acknowledgement is  due."  As a long-time West Coast  artist who studied with Jack  Shadbolt and taught for many  years at the Emily College College of An and Design (originally the Vancouver College of  Art), Jarvis isn't without an  already appreciative following.  In addition to exhibiting all over  the world since the 1940s,  Jarvis' paintings are included in  the National Gallery of Canada,  the Vancouver Art Gallery and  many other public and private  collections.  Since moving to the Sunshine  Coast from West Vancouver  three years ago, Jarvis has been  involved in the local arts community and recently taught a  watercolour class at Rockwood.  Mostly, elements of the banner designs come naturally from  themes in his own work, says  Jarvis, including the feel of  Japanese art and calligraphy  which mixes with images of rain  and trees.  "The life forms that are created with a brush; it's sort of a  universal language," says Jarvis.  The Japanese brushes and techniques he sometimes uses also  have another advantage, allowing a very direct focus between  the painter and the canvas, he  says: "It's a direct statement" -  although the paintings have no  overt messages to decipher: "It's  an accumulation of years seeing  these things in various ways."  Painting, he says, is a continuing process: "You can't really  tell where one stops and another  begins."  A total of 14 original Jarvis  designs are now being silk-  screen printed on to about 900  three by six-foot banners which  will hang along major streets of  Vancouver.  The placement of the banners  is decided ahead of time, says  Artist Don Jarvis.  Jarvis, taking into account particular backgrounds and progressive visual impact.  It's also important that the  banners be relatively clear and  simple, he says: "If you're driving in your car you don't want to  be looking up and trying to fig-  Jane Seyd photo  ure out what is it."  In conjunction with the banner-hanging, Jarvis will be opening an exhibit of recent works  May 31 at Bau-Xi Gallery in  Vancouver, including some  paintings which developed out  of the original banner designs.  Clayoquot  -decision  decried  on Coast  by Jane Seyd  Sunshine Coast environmentalists say they aren't happy  with the provincial government  decision handed down last week  on logging in the Clayoquot  Sound area and add the move  was mostly predictable.  But they also point to differences between what's happened  locally and what happened on  the West Coast and add they're  hopeful agreements can still be  made locally on Sunshine Coast  land-use decisions.  Last week, the provincial  cabinet decided to preserve one-  third of the Clayoquot area  while allowing logging at a rate  of 1000 hectares per year in the  remaining area. Early community attempts at a solution failed.  Local Resident George Smith  of Ihe Canadian Parks and  Wilderness Society, says his  group feels that's not a balanced  decision. "You have to ask  yourself why Jack Munro and  the forest companies are pleased  and while environmentalists are  disgusted, angry or depressed,"  he says.  In addition lo preserving only  a small area, an additional problem is the fragmentation of lhe  remaining wilderness. "It looks  like some cynical political  moves were being made," he  says.  Meanwhile, Dan Bouman of  Ihe Tetrahedron Alliance says  the decision doesn't really surprise him  turn to page 2  JNffl  11  4  iff  m_mi  _m  !..-,.-..���   .'    .-..������ Coast News, April 19, 1993  FOR SALE - CALL TO VIEW  Neonex Imperial  14'x70' Mobih Home  Comeau Trailer Park  #22, 1416 North Road,  Gibsons  3 IDty 400 SQ.FT.

LRUP agrees on wilderness values  by Jam Seyd  After nearly three years of wrangling on  the issue of logging versus forest preservation, a sign lhat some agreements are slill  possible emerged from the Tetrahedron  Local Resource Use Plan (LRUP) group last  week.  Bolh conservationists and forest industry  representatives were able lo reach consensus  on a plan addressing wilderness values for  the Tetrahedron in a committee report sub-  milted Wednesday night.  Other values like jobs, forestry, waler and  recreation weren't addressed by Ihe report,  which are being dealt wilh by olher LRUP  committees.  But the idea lhat agreement could be  reached even on one issue was met with  applause by LRUP members.  Committees tackling  separate issues  "Part of the process is we have to get  down to the nitty gritty and try to make  things work," said Jeremy Frith, the chair of  the wilderness committee.  Both Frith and Rick Brouwer from International Forest Products said one way agreement was reached was by concentrating on  only one element of the Tetrahedron -  wilderness values - rather than trying to  come up with a solution to the whole issue  of logging versus preservation.  At the same time, members of the committee said it's possible the consensus  reached on one issue will pave the way to  agreement on the whole Tetrahedron land-  use decision.  Under the wilderness committee's proposal, no logging would be allowed in the  Chapman Bowl area of the Tetrahedron or  immediately to the west of Edwards Lake.  Logging would be allowed on the northern  face of Mount Steele in the Gray Creek  drainage and in parts of the upper Rainy  River drainage.  Recreational traffic would also be  stopped farther away from the Tetrahedron  than it is currently.  Further committee reports on forestry, old  growth, jobs and water values are expected  by LRUP members within Ihe next month.  A public review of the information is  scheduled for June.

Powell River leachers have  also received support from several olher school districts across  the province including a recent  visit to the picket lines by  approximately 35 union presidents and BC Teachers' Federation executives.  Powell River teachers called  a strike last Tuesday (April 13)  following a two-week lock-out  initiated by their school board.  Relations between management and the union have progressively deteriorated since  ___________   January      when  teachers began a  series    of    job  actions tactics with  the aim of speeding  up contract  negotiations.  Powell   River  ^__^^^^   Teachers' Association (PRTA) president Bob Brewer said in an  interview Friday teachers will  not go back into the classrooms  until they have signed a contract. He said he had "no idea"  when that might happen.  Powell River joins several  other school districts in full-out  strike action affecting the  province.  Several other districts are  involved in job action strategies  including rotating strikes and  work-to-rule policies.

If all goes according to plan,  MacLarty says the project construction could be finished next  summer, and while she's optimistic about the project she says  Sechelt's geographical location  could be a problem.  "We always get lumped in  with the Lower Mainland in  housing issues and end up competing against (the larger centres  for funding)."  Forestry  policies  compared  from page 1  He adds that West Coast  environmentalists shouldn't  have walked away from a  chance at community decisionmaking.  "In that situation environmentalists walked out and their  views were not represented in  the solution," says Bouman. "If  there's a lesson here I hope the  lesson is nuke your case in the  process or take the consequences."  Bouman also points to major  differences between the West  Coast of Vancouver Island and  local controversial areas.  "There they can grow big  trees really quick and make big  bucks...," he says.  "Here it's a one-harvest  option."  Jeremy Frith, a regional  director and member of the  Tetrahedron Local Resource  Use Plan (LRUP) committee  adds that locally, a major community water supply is also  involved.  But many people locally urgr  ing preservation say they still  don't like the way the decision  was made in the Clayoquot.  "It's an echo of Ihe old decision-making process that's  behind closed doors," says Brad  Benson, another LRUP member.  f  _m_-a Coast News, April 19, 1993  news  Eric and Ann Byres take a  ride on a forklilt Iruck they  paid to rebuild as a corporate  donation toward the  operation of the SCRAPS  recycling depot In (iibsons.

Among other benefits, recycling could help extend the life  of the beleaguered Pender Harbour landfill, said residents al a  meeting last week in Madeira  Park.  j "There's a lot of good stuff  that gets thrown out because  people are tired of looking at  it," said Dave Howell, who  among olher residents, said he's  been involved in a kind of  "unofficial" recycling at the  dump for years.  Meanwhile Linda Goble of  Garbage Recycling in Pender  (GRIPS) hopes those statements  will translate into active  involvement and membership in  the local recycling group, need  ed to apply for funding and government grants.  So far, while people speak in  favour of recycling, "they've  never come to any meetings and  they're not members," she comments.  More memberships are needed to prove community support  for recycling to government  funding agencies, said Goble.  So far, a site for a recycling  depot has been chosen by the  group in a warehouse in the  Kleindale area, between  Madeira Park and the landfill  site.  Tentatively, Ihe group would  like lo open the depot three days  a week with an attendant on  hand, says Goble.  llie group is hoping to raise  money from federal, provincial  and local governments.  Sechelt merchants vow to join night patrols  by Darah Hansen  Plans have stepped up in Ihe on-going  battle against vandalism and theft on Cowrie  Street businesses in Sechelt.  About 45 merchants and concerned citizens met for the second lime Ihis Tuesday,  firming up plans lo create a volunteer communily watch program in the neighbourhood.  Under Ihe directorship of Staff Sgt. Cam  Reid of the Sechelt RCMP detachment, the  community volunteers will aid the police in  patrolling the business district late at night  and into the early morning hours when the  crimes most often occur - shifts will run  approximately from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m.,  seven days per week.  Reid said volunteers have been instructed  to stay in their cars and not get directly  involved in Ihe event they should encounter  criminal activity.  Instead they have been instructed to call  the RCMP via cellular phone. In this manner  potentially dangerous situations can be  avoided, Reid says.  Although Reid has never been personally  involved in such a program in the past, he is  familiar with several communities which  have implemented a community watch and  says they have met with much success in  curbing crime.  Linda Molloy owner of Shadow Baux  was quick to add that the community watch  should not be limited to business people on  Cowrie Street but also the community as a  whole.  She said a group of volunteers will be  addressing Sechelt teenagers in the high  school on the topic of community pride.  "All the revitalization in the world will do  nothing for Sechelt if there is no pride in our  town," she said. -t_n\  W Holland America line  A   TRADITION   OF   EXCELLENCE*  CRUISE NEWS  ALASKA FROM $999  STAND-BY  Enjoy a classic 7-day  round-trip Inside Passage  cruise aboard one of our  luxurious 5 star cruise  ships - for as little as  $999 - sailing from  Vancouver.

It is also a document designed to provide an aura of  certainty for newcomers to the community who want to  ensure that undesirable land uses are not going to suddenly appear next doorstep after investing their savings in a  peaceful home.  That's the theory, anyway. The drawback in the second  case is that the OCP is only a guideline, selling out a  planning vision for the next five years. But life is unpredictable and ideas change - sometimes within the span of  a community plan - and there is little comfort for residents caught in the middle.  More misleading is the notion that existing residents  are able to influence significantly the policies contained  in the planning document.  Gibsons, which is close to unveiling a revised draft of  its new community plan, is a timely example. The drafting of an OCP has become so technical that it requires  expert planners and, frequently, consultants to put the  document together.  A majority of people who turned out to an information  meeting on the first draft of the town's OCP last January  were upset by the densities and grandiosity of the plan,  which was looking 10 or even IS years into the future.  Meanwhile, community and political values change.  The outcry was such that the whole package was  referred to a consultant for more than six months and the  town has been thrashing around with definitions and  wording for a further five months now, trying to clavify  and hone the plan into something it hopes residents will  be able to live with.  Yet how much of what residents want actually goes  into the plan, rather than what planners believe is in the  best interest of orderly development? A public hearing  will come at the end of it all, but how many dissenting  opinions are enough to effect change?  The working harbour concept in Gibsons is a case in  point. The phrase has been given plenty of coinage in the  last year, and it now appears the thinking at town hall is  that a working harbour means the waterfront area current-  , ly enclosed by the breakwater that encloses die govem-  - ment dock and the marina.  | That doesn't seem to reflect the wishes of many residents in Gibsons, who spoke passionately about the community's historical ties to the working waterfront at a  public meeting on the issue last year.  Examples were cited of countless coastal BC communities which have seen their waterfronts disappear under  condominiums and high density residential development.  The potential for industrial activity, businesses which create jobs, disappeared in the clamour for quiet enjoyment.  There have been loud, compelling statements made in  Gibsons that residents do not wish to see a true working  harbour slip away.  And behind the complexities of conflicting policies  and non-conforming uses at town hall, still lurks the  burning question of the harbour's future; no amount of  bureaucratic dancing has yet whisked it away.  But it is late in the day, and the forthcoming OCP hearings will very likely settle the issue once and for all.  If Cd)0Di3K HU)aK9sieRs Goaiiesp biini  mimm��tm.mmm  mmtmrnL  *w��1*��*��.  Gibsons pool  urgently needed  An open letter to Glbaons'  mayor and council  Many of our members are  extremely concerned after reading of the further delay in the  completion of the pool renovations.  On the one hand we are  developing local initiatives for a  healthy community, and on the  other, we have a pool which  requires further work, and we  are not able to agree to spend  the required funds. Surely we  must consider the many people  who use the pool for therapy,  and the families teaching young  children water safety. Perhaps  the Rotary Club and other service clubs could add their support. We must work together io  possibly save the life of one  young person, and help the  seniors maintain mobility, and a  healthier lifestyle.  We need the pool urgently.  LILLIAN KUNSTLER  Lifestyles for Seniors Wellness  Trashing dock  not the answer  I am sending this letter in  response to the letter sent to me  by the Town of Gibsons. With  the issue of garbage: The  garbage containers on the dock  are for the people of the dock.  The fisheries pay for them out  of the wharfage collected by the  boaters. This is not the local  dump site of Gibsons. They  have a site in Sechelt for that  purpose. These people leave the  lids open for the crows and  seagulls to invade, making a  mess all over that area. If the  people of Gibsons have a problem with the disposal of their  household garbage, maybe Ihe  town of Gibsons can come up  with a better solution. Rather  than maybe the dock could supply another bin. Why should  we?  Also, with the issue of things  on the dock let by the fishermen, such as fishing poles,  drums, etc. If you notice there is  no storage on the dock for these  items, so when the fishermen  switch over from one form of  fishing to another they have to  leave things behind.  This is a working dock. On  any given day Ihere are welding  trucks, live tank trucks, insulation trucks. Every day at this  time of year people are working  on their boats. This is not the  "Gibsons Yacht Club." We  1 don't have things all pretty and  ' colourful for the visitors. The  people come down here because  it is interesting and different. I  agree the dock does need some  changes and they have already  begun.  I believe that with the help of  everyone, the dock could be a  nicer place. But everyone has to  help by putting their refuse into  containers, so people don't have  to look at someone else's  garbage.

Although I voted NDP in  the last provincial election, I  will not support the NDP next  time if you continue to side with  large powerful corporations  against the public interest.  It is difficult to see how the  orientation of your decisions on  forestry differ from those of the  Socreds. Even Vander Zalm  bowed to public pressures to  have areas preserved.

Our own  home has been repeatedly vandalized.  One night last week the windows on our van were smashed  while parked in our driveway.  Clearly there are hotheads on  both sides of the issue.

ROGERLAGASSE  Halbnoon Bay  Artists  benefit schools  During the second week of  March, local artists from a variety of disciplines participated in  an artists-in-the-schools program across the Sunshine Coast.  Their purpose was to share their  work and inspiration with students, and to (hopefully)  impress them with the delight  and importance of art in human  culture. Perhaps a new door has  been opened in the realm of  community education.  On behalf of all the artists,  students and teachers who benefitted from this event, I wish to  extend thanks and appreciation  to Caitlin Hicks for coordinating  arrangements between the artists  and the schools. Thanks for your  energetic enthusiasm in making  it happen, Caitlin!  DIANE CORBETT  Granthams Landing  I    Sedona, Arizona - where paths of spiritualism meet  There is one way in which Sedona, Arizona,  would be familiar to any resident of tbe Canadian  west coast It has recently been discovered big time  and the resultant mushrooming growth seems  unlikely to end soon.  There is in the residents, almost of all of them  from somewhere else, the same wistful sense of  change coming too fast that you find on the Sunshine Coast and the Lower Mainland  In BC, the galloping growth is occasioned by  the breathtaking beauty of the place and the doors  thrown wide by Mulroney's immigration policy.  In Sedona, Arizona, the coming to international  attention and popularity is even more recent. The  most recent figures available indicate that here in  north central Arizona is a town of more than 14,000  people which was only incorporated in 1987.  Situated where the Arizona desert meets the  mountains, the place is surpassingly beautiful. It is  red rock country with great mesas and buttes of  vivid reds and contrasting paler yellows carved  into the most dramatic and eccentric forms and  shapes against the bluish gray/green of tbe desert  sage brush and the manzanita bushes.  The more familiar green of the great Arizona  sycamores and the hardy scrub oak are promised  with Spring, and all of this set off by a sky which  i always of the bluest  Vividly beautiful it is, but so it has been for  musings  John burnside  millennia without occasioning the rush to growth it  now knows.  To the Indian tribes in tbe vicinity, which  include Hopi, Navajo and various kinds of Apache,  the flatlands which form Sedona were sacred. They  were visited for ceremonial reasons but no tribe  occupied them. The Sacred Earth, the Indians  called the place.  Tbe beginning of the Sedona story of growth is  in 1980. A channeler of the aiea in alleged communication with an entity from beyond she called  Albion published the revealed information that  there were power vortexes in the sacred lands of  the Indians.  These vortexes are scattered throughout tbe  area, according to Albion.  Female vortexes are magnetic and male vortexes are electric; some vortexes are a combination of  the two.  To the amazement of the channeler and everyone else, virtually a new religion was bom. New  Age devotees flooded in to pay their respects and  to live in close contact with all this good sniff.  By 1987, the year Sedona was incorporated, the  town was one of the key spots on earth to usher in  the Harmonic Convergence, which New Agists  believe marked the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, in which age much good can be expected, they  say.  Many came to marvel and stayed, apparently,  both to revere and to profit from the beauty and  sudden prominence of the area.  The more serious New Agists seem to borrow  heavily from the belief systems of the North American Indian. There is expressed a reverence for the  land and all of its creatures. Sweat lodges and  prayer circles are not uncommon.  If reverence for the land is timeless it must be  learned slowly, it would appear. In the search for  instant gratification that some of the worshippers  bring to their new lives from the old, there is much  clumsiness.  Forest rangers are scornful of 'environmentalists' who in their enthusiasm to display their reverence inflict damage on an environment which is as  delicate as it is dramatic.  Difficulties are compounded by the arrival with  the New Agists of some who believe that the  sacred earth and its vortexes are attractive also to  aliens from outer space, and unidentified flying  object stories are legion along with reports of those  who have taken trips on alien space ships and  claim to be intermediaries for the aliens.  If all this is not enough the Arizona desert, like  most of the American southwest, is a well-established hotbed of Christian fundamentalism, the followers of which believe that all of the above are  manifestations of Satan.  There have been some hot and heavy interchanges between the Christians and tbe New Age  folks.  Lately, we are told, there has been a lessening  of hostility. The Indians believe that every ray that  leads to tbe Great Spirit is a good true ray, and  some of that tolerance may be nibbing off on the  combatants.  On the south end of town there is a beautiful  Roman Catholic chapel placed between two buttes.  A local sculptor had the idea for it and Frank  Uoyd Wright had a hand in its design. The place is  also said to be a magnetic or female vortex which  encourages tranquillity.  Whatever the cause, this shrine seems a place  revered by all. AU around it, are the timeless and  spectacular rocks offering mute testimony to the  earth's beauty, no matter the cacophony of beliefs  they inspire amongst their mortal neighbours.

Not only  could you print up your own  stuff but there is an almost  unlimited amount of good material about, out of print, available  and crying for republication.  This kind of innocent notion  must have bumbled about in a  good one of those many heads  over the past decades, but it  tends to be one of those secret  desires, like owning a pub in  England or a round-the-world-  boat.  Whal brings it up, and what  brings up Virginia Woolf I may  warn you, is that a friend of a  friend in Vancouver has actually  come into an old but good and,  with love and patience, workable printing press. He has it  now, physically, in a small  rather ramshackle, I gather,  warehouse somewhere near the  cenlre of town. He is busily  engaged on a daily basis mopping up the floors, (there's been  ns, a. bit of a flood I hear), doing  something wilh  the walls,  ' putting in shelves and working  v tables, getting in a coffee-maker  _ and all that jolly stuff. Give it a  S couple of weeks and he will  ensconce in his own (small)  i' printing shop.  This young friend, call him  Alex, is well aware lhal Ihe  -i press he's got is not Ihe press  t you would get if you wanted lo  get into the business card or any  i of that brisk trade. His sights are  I set higher, after a fashion, He is  going lo sit snug in his shop and  personally turn out quality limited editions. Nothing wrong with  that we may think, If you don't  want to get terribly rich, but limited editions of what?  Turns out he seems headed  into a hornets' nest of poets.  Some may think that for any  kind of a business head, handling a bunch of poets should be  child's play, but poets today are  different. The languid type  scrawling stanzas with a feather  quill, they are a thing of the  past, man. The poets today are  fiercely competitive, more like  the swordsmen of France in the  time of D'Artagnan.  I felt an urge to offer young  Alex some sort of advice, but I  know nothing at all of printing  and little indeed about publishing. The best I came up with  w.is lo suggest that he read the  account of the beginning of lhe  Hogarth Press, the account of  Virginia Woolf as printer and  publisher.  I don't know how many people even know about Virginia  Woolf these days, but she was a  bil of a legend in her own time,  the 70s and '30s. She was  known then as a 'difficult' writer (but important of course).  Tall, skinny and kind of haunted, she seemed anything but  accessible. The fact that at one  time, near the end of the '20s,  she applied, with her husband,  to join the Printers' Union, a  tough one in London, does certainly not fit any image we have  of her.  In a nutshell  They had, of course, been  chattering away with their writing friends on the old theme that  what they needed to get their  avant-garde works to the public  was to publish the stuff themselves. The union turned them  down of course, but Leonard  was a dogged and practical man.  One day they were strolling  down a London street and there  in a window was a printing  press. A big, old heavy job but,  Leonard said, a good one. They  went in and the price was right  But, they said to the shopkeeper,  'We don't know how to run it  and everyone refuses to teach  us.'  'No problem,' said the shopkeeper. 'I will write you full  instructions.' Which he did on  the spot, in longhand, and they  got a carter with a few mates,  and got it home, cleared away  half their dining room, and set it  down. They resisted the itch to  start clanking away with it until  they had fully digested all of the  shopkeeper's instructions.  Lucky perhaps. They had an  architect friend for dinner and  he said almost at once, 'My  God, you can't use that thing  here. It will go right through the  stuart nutter  floor and kill your cook.' (It was  one of those London 'Upstairs  Downstairs' houses with the  kitchen in the bottom).  They fortified themselves  and went down and bearded the  cook (also a character from  Upstairs Downstairs). She was,  of course, deeply and genuinely  shocked.  A great piece of nasty old  machinery in her kitchen? There  would be oil over everything  and she had heard about printer's ink.  How would they like printer's ink with their mince pies?  But when confronted with the  alternative (that she might get  squished) she gave in, and  stayed on, and the press moved  to an end of the kitchen, and the  Hogarth Press was born, and  people like T.S. Eliot got published for the first time.  Well, its a nice enough story  1 guess. Perhaps it might sing a  bit in the head of a young fellow  with an old press in a Vancouver warehouse. But does it offer  any real kind of encouragement?  Sure with your press you can  print the things you like; but  how in Canada today can you  get the things distributed.  letters  -, Preparing  ' for disaster  1 had great plans to promote  * Emergency Preparedness Week  on Ihe Sunshine Coasl through  display ads in local newspapers  such as yours, bul one conse-  1   quencc of repent, budget cuts is  .that 1 can no .longer al'ford,^ do  i , IJiat^ljojiefuHylhis letter will  .serve the purpose.  ,  April 18-24 is Emergency  i   Preparedness Week in B.C.

CHRIS CALDWELL  Sunshine Coast  emergency co-ordinator  Easter cat salute  Snuggles was missing and a  family was devastated. Signs  were posted throughout Gibsons  including Cedar Grove School.  His family and friends searched  long and hard, but to no avail.  He was not to be found. Amanda's.much loved while cat (wilh  a small grey mark between his  ears) disappeared without a  trace. Missing five months and a  little girl's heart was broken.  Enter the picture, Snowbird,  another white cat. But this white  cat had been abandoned, eventually hit by a car on the highway,  his leg now in a cast.  When he was injured, he was  taken to the animal hospital by  kind local people who witnessed  the accident. Our local SPCA  then became involved, seeing  the was treated for his injuries  and placed in a foster home  where he could recuperate.  An ad was placed in the  Found column of the Coast  News in hopes of finding his  family. One of the responses to  the ad was concerning the above  mentioned, Snuggles.  No, the cat we have is pure  white, no gray mark anywhere.  Astonishingly enough, such a  cat had been seen in our yard  and neighbours' yards. We  would watch out for him. The  devastated family thought it  could pot possibly be their long  Stst, Snuggles. The past winter  ad been particularly cold' and  snowy, how could a pafppered,  fireside cat survive on his own  for fixe months. It wasn't possible. , .:],',  But Good Friday morning, a  miracle happened. "Snuggles"  was found by the foster mom  and was reunited by his ecstatic  family, who said it was the best  Easter present they ever had.  Because of a lost injured cat,  many lives were brightened this  Easter. The children will never  forget. Yet Snowbird, the cat  who made a miracle, sits quietly  as his name is regrettably added  to the long list of unclaimed cats  out at the SPCA.  We salute you Snowbird!

A great,  friendly way to become involved in Ihe community.  by Joyce Ostrey  Congratulations are pouring  in from those who have watched  a dream become a reality. Many  decisions were required when  Branch 69 decided thai the  Seniors Hall on Mermaid had  grown too small for the membership. Many people were  involved in the search for  monies for the building after the  purchase of a lot 60x100 and  100x405. The lot was made  available through a cash gift  from Jean Sherlock. Funds were  found through Expo Legacy and  day; Carpet bowling on Monday; Crafts and Pompoms every  Thursday at 9:30 am; Crib and  Whisl on the first and third  Tuesdays; Exercises at 10 am on  Monday, Wednesday and  Thursday; 5-pin bowling at  Gibsons Lanes at 10:30 am and  1 pm Friday; Oil Painting at 1  pm on Wednesday; Social  Bingo on the second and fourth  Thursday; Square dancing at 8  pm on Tuesday and Friday;  Bridge every Saturday and  69ers practice at 10 am Wednesday.

Environmental vision  spreading via 20/20  by Kyla McDonald  Many people assume saving  . the environment is a lime-consuming, stressful activity, but  this does not have to be true. Or  so believes a group of concerned BC residents who in  1990 started an environmental  activist network called 20/20  Vision.  The idea behind the name is  : thai each member pays an annual $20 fee and donates 20 minutes a month writing a letter to  make an environmental difference, "ll only lakes 20 minutes  or less a month," said Sunshine  Coasl resident and 20/20 member Val Marus. "It makes me  . feel like I'm really doing something"  , The 20/20 club is a non-prof-  i il organization whose researchers volunteer time and knowledge lo supply members wilh  . information about one important  ,local or international event  i monthly. The members receive  a postcard wilh current and  background information on the  subject. The postcard also contains the name and address of a  member of parliament, or policy-maker who may be contacted  and informed of public concerns.  This club appeals lo people  because even those with busy  schedules have an opportunity  .to speak out on world problems,  without feeling overwhelmed or  doing lime-consuming research.  The club is also convenient  because it has no meetings, and  members receive regular feedback from those they write to.  ("I've gotten quite a few  responses, and it's nice because  it shows me that someone is  taking the time to read what I  have to say," said Mains.  . The club has expanded quite  a lot in the past three years, and  recently became part of an international activist network called  EarthAclion.  EarthAction started in  June 1992 at the Brazil Earth  Summit in Rio de Janeiro and  brings together more than 600  groups in 87 countries worldwide whose leaders meet regularly to discuss internationally  pressing peace and environmental issues. The information is  then sent to the groups in the  EarthAction Network.  20/20 Vision has joined  EarthAction in the hope that  more awareness on a larger  scale will lead to more change.  "By joining 20/20 Vision with  EarthAction, we are making it  possible for Canadians to join  thousands, if not millions, of  other concerned citizens around  Ihe world to help protect the  planet," says Steve Macdonald,  coordinator of 20/20 Vision BC.

Aren't we proud of Davis  Bay's own Phyl Enquist who  chalked up such a smashing  victory as the lop giant slalom  racer in the world in her age  group, winning two gold  medals? She gives us all another reason lo strive to be all we  can be, regardless of age.  On a more serious note,  Darah Hansen's excellenl article on violence in our schools  gives us food for thought. It is a  very real and frightening problem in California, with every  day another story of extreme  violence either in Ihe school  itself or on the grounds.  In February it was decided to  install metal detectors in ALL  schools because of the guns,  knives, chains, etc., that the  young people carry with them.  In 1992 in California alone,  500,000 guns were purchased,  wiih one third being sold in Los  Angeles County...frightening. I  pray it never comes to that here  in our country.  Now for some fun ... we all  like to be 'up' on current  trends, be Ihey fashion, decorating, etc., but what about our  vocabulary? Are we up to date  on that? Let's see. These words,  according to the 'experts(?)' are  'out'... cellulite, daily affirmation, downsize, hunk, in your  face, media hype, lean and  mean, over Ihe top, chic, babe,  erotica, Fellini-esque, high concept, Christian nation, Elvis,  new world order, over the top,  : and the bottom line - to name a  \ ifew.

Mad drivers  Redrooffs Road has become  a compiele danger zone for  anyone attempting lo walk or  ride a bike, as has the area  around Halfmoon Bay School,  particularly around opening and  closing times.  Il is no longer safe to have a  pet, which may cross the road  and not sland a chance against  someone tearing along at well  over the speed limit. Many  drivers seem quite unaware that  Ihe maximum speed along  Redrooffs is 50km, and get  really upset with anyone who  adheres to the rule. A fortune  could be collected on speeding  tickets if there were regular/  patrols lo nail these culprits  who put Iheir own and everyone else's lives in danger every  day of the week. !

Back  then, you could sell the big butler clams for a cent and a half a  pound, and little neck clams for  Iwo and a half cents. Now butler clams are prohibited all year  round, and you can sell Manila  and littlenecks for more than a  dollar a pound when they are  open.

Mr. Breon Mel-  \in, of the Extension Department of the University of B. C.  was in attendance, by invitation, and gave a very instructive  lulk on consumer co-operation.  Mr. Melvin, though an enthus-  i ist for co-operation, was very  careful to make it plain that  while It was alright to reach for  the stars, it was even more important to keep your feet on  the ground, and your eyes open.  His talk was very well received  by the meeting and served to  crystalize an idea that has been  developing here for some time.  We hope to have, very soon,  complete details of what will  develop into a modern co-operative atore for Egmont. We believe that if we are to have  good service we must provide  it ourselves.

He was in the act of  falling a tree when tt accidently  fell backwards across a nearby  power-line.

Luckily for him, he picked  up the wire which was broken  In several places and was dead.  If he had picked up the other  end of the wire which was lying  nearby, thousands of volts  would have ran through his  body and caused almost instant  death. Suddenly realizing how  close he had come to death, he  avoided any further touching  of wires and waited for the linemen to arrive and make the  necessary repairs.  ���   ���   ���  Mrs. C.

A song,  the sound of a voice, a certain  smell. All are to a certain degree  capable of opening up that closet of the mind in which the past  is stored, of bringing to life  certain aspects of one's existence that might have taken  place as long as half a century  before. Then there are the times  when, given the right spark,  memories burst forth like Canada Day fireworks. In Ihe case of  75-year-old Hopkins Landing  resident Coley Easterbrook, the  spark was a newspaper advertisement.  It all started when Easier-  brook was leafing through the  Coast News a couple of weeks  ago. He happened across an ad  featuring the front page of a  1946 edition of the same paper.  The dominant photo on the 1946  paper was thai of large snow  tractors in an arctic setting with  a strange looking winged flying  machine crossing the sky in Ihe  background. The terse cutline  below the picture identified the  scene as a part of the Muskox  Expedition.  "I was there," Easterbrook  said, tapping the copy of the  1946 front page. "1 was part of a  paratroop outfit in Churchill that  was responsible for flying supplies in to the guys working on  the Muskox expedition."  The year was 1945, and Ihe  Second World War had just  community services  Coley Easterbrook  ended. Easterbrook, still with a  couple of years to serve in the  Canadian Airforce, applied to be  shipped to the South Pacific  where war clean-up efforts were  underway.  "For some reason that mission was cancelled," Easterbrook recalled last week, "so I  ended up going north to  Churchill instead."  Easterbrook said 'Muskox  Expedition' was the code name  for the establishment of the  DEW line, the Distant Early  Dianne Evans  Most of the programs offered  by Community Services focus  on families and children. In  order to ensure lhat the best possible service is delivered, Community Services works in collaboration with other agencies  also concerned with children  and youth.  This is done through the  Child and Youth Committee,  chaired by Doreen MacLauch-  lan from the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit.  Child, youth committee  Last week I talked to Communily Service Executive  Director, Vicki, Dobbyn, about  Ihis committee and the role it  plays in our community.  "Sometimes giving children  and families the kind of service  they need can be a complex process in that, at different limes  different services are needed, or  a number of different services  are needed at the same time,"  Vicki explained. "It is important  that these be well coordinated,  and the Chid and Youth Committee (CYC) gives us the  opportunity to do that.  The CYC has evolved from a  small committee which focused  on specific case reviews, to a  broader membership ready to  lake on the challenges of planning and coordinating service.  Strategic planning  The committee recently participated in a strategic planning  process. The agencies involved  include the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit, Ministry of Social  Services, Sechelt Mental Health  Centre, School District 46,  Home Support Society, RCMP,  SCRD, Sechelt Indian Band,  Action Society, Sechelt Probation and Family Court Services,  Teddy Bear Daycare, and Community Services. Local government will also be invited to join  the committee.  "An important result of the  planning process was to develop  a road map of service available  to children and youth at risk.  The committee is a good place  to share information, and to  learn about all the different programs available," Vicki continued. "This enables us to pinpoint gaps in services and to  work together to plan for new  services."  Priorities for the year  An important part of planning has been setting priorities  for the coming year; the four  major priorities are as follows:  Increasing resources for current services; initiating a community-wide approach to look at  the issues of children and youth  with severe behavioural problems in the schools; expanding  prevention services; completing  the current work o emergency  responses to sudden deaths of  young people in the schools.  What impact to these priorities have on Community Services?  "We are involved in all these  areas," Vicki said, "but we are  particularly pleased with the  support the committee is giving  Parenl-Tol Drop-In, one of the  most important preventive programs on the Coast."  "...The latest research shows  that by giving infants and toddlers special time with parents,  and by making parenting education and family support available, children develop healthier  attitudes toward learning. If we  really want to prevent serious  problems we have to begin at a  very young age."

Members of  the Canadian, American and  British militaries worked together on the project with a a few  Russian officers mixed in.  The line was really an elaborate series of manned Arctic  radar stations, stretching from  outside Churchill to  Yellowknife, then down to  Edmonton where it ended. "I  worked on the first half of the  job," Easterbrook said. "When  we got half way another crew  from Yellowknife took over."  He points to the plane in the  1946 picture. "That was the  Norseman. It was Ihe only plane  we had thai could land in snow  because il was on skis ... I  remember when it crashed."  The Norseman, weighed  down with a heavy load, flipped  in a complete circle on lake-off,  landing right-side-up. "It broke  Ihe tail fin," he recalled. "But  the pilot jusl walked away."  A perusal of the 1946 paper  thai started Easterbrook's flight  down memory lane gives no  indication of a connection  between Ihe Muskox expedition  and the Sunshine Coast. And  Easterbrook says he doesn't  know why Ihe picture is on the  front page of the Coast News  either.  "I can't imagine why it's  Ihere," he says, "I was surprised  to see il. But it's been great. I  remember Ihings now that I  thought I'd forgotten long ago...  and I'm at the age now where  memories are a big part of my  life."  Now, along with the memories, Eadsterbrook has another  item to ponder. He wonders if  there are other Coast residents  who were posted in Churchill at  the same time.  "There were a lot of guys up  there," he recalls, "something  like 2,000. So I wouldn't  remember everyone, but it  would be nice to meet someone  else who'd been up there in '45  or '46."

The antique quilts seem to  dominate at first because of  size, colour, and pattern, but Ihe  subtle gradations of hue and the  finely burnished surfaces of  Lisa Blackwell's pottery reward  the close attention of the viewer.  The similar intense and intimate working of the quilts and  the pottery, and the domestic  associations of both art forms  establishes a unity which overrides the contrasting textures  and solitudes of the two media.  Over 180 people attended  the April 3 reception for Lisa  Blackwell, and the evening  reception for the Quilters  promises to be equally popular.

Elphinstone team coaches Joan Fox and Tom  Daniels have had their learns practising for the various events since early March.  "We have a good turnout this year," said Fox.  "Many of lhe athletes have good potential to qualify for the BC Summer Games or the BC Juvenile  Championships, depending on Iheir age group."  The first major meet for the team Ihis year takes  place April 24 al Minora Park in Richmond. "We  have around seven major meets this year," said  Daniels, "some mini meets will also take place on  Ihe Coast." The first of these will be April 20 in  Pender Harbour.  ��� There will be several 'mini meets' throughout  the season, their main purpose is lo prepare the athletes for competition lhat lies ahead. These meets,  however, will be on a much smaller scale wilh  fewer events and participants.  Elphinstone school will have a leam for only the  second time this year, but the 25 students who have  turned out to participate are dedicated to their  events. "We've been practising twice a week since  spring break, it's been good," said participant  Christy Stoochnoff.  Stoochnoff is one of many Elphinstone students  participating in short distance running. "The majority of Ihe interest this year seems to be the throwing and sprinting," said coach Fox. "However, we  are represented in almost every event."  Fox, who has been involved in track and field  both as an athlete and as a coach, feels positive  about her team and is also pleased about community support. Gibsons Rotary Club has donated to  Elphinstone a discus cage which Fox said would  enable the students to learn the proper throwing  techniques.  "However, our school still needs a proper track  to have all the facilities for training."  Exact dates are not known for all of the up-coming meets, however, most of the track and field  participants expressed no real feelings of unease  about their performances. They will continue to  train hard until goals have been met.  bridge comer  by Rudy Notzl  To Bid or Not to Bid - the  following are excerpts from  Larry Cohen's recent book,  suggesting how to handle the  aggressive world of today's  Bridge.  This approach is based on  the idea that "trumps are eveiylhing." Competitive bidding  decisions are solved by The  Law of Total Tricks, total tricks  meaning the total of trump  cards you hold with your partner, plus the total of cards in lhe  suit your opponents are competing in.  The law slates (to be memorized): "The total number of  tricks available on any deal is  equal to the total number of  trumps." To wit: If your side  has nine trumps and, therefore,  can take nine tricks, then if  your opponents have a total of  10 trumps in another suit, Ihey  should be able to take their  tricks. This nearly regardless of  high card point holding, but  assuming the hand is executed  in the best manner both by  declarer and defence.  In our example above, the  total number of available tricks  is 19 (9+10) and we should be  safe in bidding up to the three  level (9=6+3), while our opponents can make four if their suit  is trumps (10=6+4).  We are hardly ever completely sure about the actual  numbers held by either side, but  will interpolate the total number  of trumps in our future bidding  "decisions.  ACBL contest: The total  Master Points accumulated during our first year of operation  are: Pat Ashby 17.48 MP; Jean  Coyle 16.84; Patti Phillips 8.94;  Marilynn Lyons 6.09.  f DEPENDABLE   AUTO SERVICE  Did you know...

London is a  logical firsl slop as it offers a  mindboggling assortment of  attractions and is Ihe perfect  stepping off point to see the rest  of Britain.  London's "golden triangle",  which includes Trafalgar  Square, Buckingham Palace,  Ihe Houses of Parliament and  Westminster Abbey, is rich in  sights. Trafalgar Square is perfect for picture-taking and nearby is Ihe National Gallery wilh  its remarkable art collection.  It isn't possible to tour the  Queen's residence, bul Ihe  Changing of Ihe Guard, held  daily al 11:30 a.m. (arrive early)  is worth seeing, as arc Ihe Royal  Mews and Queen's Gallery  museums, which give glimpses  of Ihe life of the Royals.  There are usually long lineups for the public areas of the  Houses of Parliament. Best to be  content wilh a good photograph  of Big Ben.  The highlight of a London  visit for many is Ihe wonderful  Weslminster Abbey, where  kings and queens are crowned,  married and many, buried. Built  by King Henry III in 1245, it is  an amazing church and calls for  several hours of sightseeing.  Another favourite, the Tower  of London, began as a fortress  in 1066 and today it is still a  formidable looking edifice overlooking the Thames. Complete  with moat, Ihe Tower is a wonderful place to wander and  relive history. There is the  courtyard where Anne Boleyn  was executed (and where her  ghost is said to roam still), the  Royal Armouries which display  arms, and the highlight - the  crown jewels, which include the  world's largest diamond. No  touching allowed.  There are many day  and weekend excursions from London  London has many green  spaces - we've all heard of Hyde  Park - and many heritage  homes. It is possible lo visit  these homes on tours. And Ihere  are many worthwhile excursions  oul of Ihe city. Travelling by  coach is usually the cheapest,  but also the slowest. A BrilRail  Pass gives unlimited rail travel  in England, Scotland, Wales and  for the first time, Ireland. If  you're planning to rent a car,  arrangements can be made  before leaving Canada or upon  arrival.  There are many day and  weekend excursions from London.  Cambridge is a scenic university city featuring 13th century architecture. Situated on the  bend of the River Cam, ils  medieval streets are rich in gardens and history.  Bath, located in England's  verdant West Country, is a three  hour train ride from London. A  well-preserved, 18th century  town, it was settled by the  Romans who built complex  series of hoi springs balhs which  can be toured.  Another scenic city and  home of a renowned university,  Oxford, is a pleasant day trip. A  must-see here is the Ashmolean  Museum, as it is Britain's oldest  public museum and features  many priceless artifacts.  A popular circular tour from  London coven England's southwest corner, from the rolling  hills of Somerset, along the  coast to Ihe dramatic grandeur  of Land's End. Continuing  along the north Comish coast, a  highlight will be Tintagel,  believed to be the birthplace of  King Arthur.  This route could be continued to include Wales, one of  Britain's most scenic regions.  Hilltop castles, miles of pristine  coastline, tiny fishing villages  and a verdant, peaceful countryside. Wales is often by-passed,  and it shouldn't be.  Another area which invites  exploration is Shakespeare's  Stratford-upon-Avon, which  connects to historic villages and  then into the Cotswold Hills  famous for the classic, rustic  buildings of Cotswold slone.  A trip to London and its  environs calls for careful planning.  Article courtesy of BCAA  Travel.  Look what daffodils do.  Living proof that cancer can be beaten.

A worn red embroidered rug  lies across a table, the floors are  barren except for the odd pile of  colourful material scraps piled  up in the corner of the front  room.  An old piano leans up against  the wall. It's wooden face has  been removed, the hammer and  strings exposed, the ivory worn  liom years of use.  The unmatched couches positioned around the small wood-  burning slove are sunken, well  used and comfortable.  By accepted societal standards, it's junk. It's one of those  sad examples of how a person is  forced lo exist when he or she  doesn't have a decent income to  live by.  Bul Gemma Vandermeer  doesn't see her home thai way.  Whal others see as poverty, she  sees only a lifestyle rich with  comfort and satisfaction.  "1 love poverty," she says fat-  ter-of-faclly, sealing herself on  one of the two sofas, a muddy  puppy leaping up beside her.  Smiling, she says, "It's more  of a challenge."  Originally from Holland,  Vandermeer says she grew up  with little wealth.  Her only taste of money  came later in life when she married. She was rich then, she  says. She had leather couches,  expensive clothing and money  to burn. She was miserable.  There's no pleasure in having  whatever you wanl, Vandermeer  says, "You get bored so easily."  What she needs now, she  makes or repairs... Everything  new, everything clean, everything malching, everything  white, she says, "So much  waste. I hate it."  And so she recycles - everything from the house in which  she lives to the clothes on her  back.  "I've tried everything," she  says. The evidence is plentiful:  drawers, baskets and wardrobes  stuffed with sweaters and gloves  reknit from the conglomeration  of discarded wool items; a box  alop a cupboard full of  envelopes made from folded  CkMitta MfXftntjm mMditfc  This take-home video is opening to rave  reviews, and it can be your ticket to choos  ing the right carpet for your walk of life.

I make  1,000's of everything and then  I'm burned out and I quit."  Her latest projects are underwear sewn from T-shirt scraps  and cloth menstrual pads. The  latter item, she's had much fun  with using flannel material with  little figures of Dracula.  "Why not be colourful." she  asks. "Why not make these  things comfortable and pleasant  to look at.  "Women have been hiding  these things away for years. I  think we should hang them out  on our clothes lines like flags."  Vandermeer knows the  delight in her lifestyle isn't  shared by her neighbours and  she is often criticized, she says.  school board notes  Jm  K^    \v ^_^_^_W     ^��'^B  Kj^J|  ykM  Gemma Vandermeer  Recently, her daughter was  told lo make sure to attain high  educational goals: "You don't  want to end up like your mother... with no goals."  Vandermeer only laughs,  "No goals? No...l jusl want to  save the world, that's all."  Maggie Jacks, chair of Ihe  Pender Harbour Parent's Advisory Council stood before district school board trustees Tuesday night to drive home a point  Ihe PAC has been trying to  make to the board for three  years.  Jacks told the trustees Ihe  PAC supports the construction  of a new full facility Kindergarten through grade 7 school -  site yet to be determined - with  additions to be made the high  school if necessary.  Jacks further asked Ihe board  to work openly wilh Ihe communily when making any decisions concerning the APRA  report.  Board chair Pat Stuart told  Jacks thai the PAC will be  informed when final decisions  will be made and that Jacks'  comments made at the meeting  will then be considered.  Provincial .Scholarship  A fourth Elphinstone student  has been named as �� recipient  of a provincial scholarship  award. Congratulations went  out to winner Francesca Mitten  (Ryan) from the superintendent  and board trustees.  Women In Viqlence.  Ron Breadner, spokesperson  for the local Women in Violence Committee and former  districl counsellor, gave a short  report to the board on the topic  of increasing violence in society.  Breadner urged the board lo  continue supporting communily  programs aimed al ending the  cycle of family violence. And  quoting a society colleague, he  said: "Wouldn't it be nice if we  could put up a sign al the ferry  that said 'This is a violence-  free zone.'"  Extended Experience  Four extended experience  requests were given board  approval. Chatelech Secondary,  grade 11 and 12 are off on a  six-day canoe Irip on Ihe Powell  Lakes.  French Immersion sludenis  from bolh Gibsons and Sechelt  Elementary schools as well as  one sludent from Elphinslone  will fly lo Quebec nexl monlh.  Fourteen Grade 12 students  from Elphinstone will head to  Ihe Wesl Coast Trail for one  week.  And five Elphinslone grade  11 and 12 students will attend a  slay-in-school conference al Ihe  University of Alberta in  Edmonton in Mid-May.  Sewer Easement  . The board approved a sewer  easement requested by the District of Sechelt to be constructed along ihe soulh side of  Sechelt Elementary school  between a retaining wall and  the road.  Halfmoon Bay Daycare  The board declined lo fund  Ihe $50,000 estimated cosl of  moving the Halfmoon Bay daycare facilities on to neighbouring properly. The pre-  school/daycare has been asked  lo move off school properly in  order thai extensions lo Ihe  existing elementary school can  be made.  ���!'      '.'
