March 18, 1980  Volume 34, Number 11  On garbage dispute  Regional Board  responds  The BEACHCOMBERS had a wet rainy Sunday for the shooting ot their first show of the season. The show is  called Sallawiy and it stars Heath Lamberts, a sailor with an eye for the wide open spaces and the billow of  canvas.  For Community Hall  New Pender executive elected  "This is 1980, not 1979. It's a whole new ball game!"  This from newly-elected Pender Community Club President,  Jack Heidema. He looks determined.  "From here-on-in, this Club is going to be positive, looking  forward, not back. We're going to be the asset this community  deserves."  Jack Heidema retired to the Harbour five years ago. He found a  community club which owns the largest public hall outside the  schools on the Sunshine Coast. Despite flurries of grant-funded  renovations, the Club's membership had become so apathetic, it  was unable to form a quorum to elect a new executive last  February 16. Under threat of dissolution, faced with closing its  doors, the Club called another general meeting for February 23.  A total of 35 people turned up���a mere fraction ofthe 150-plus  membership���but enough to do the job. An entire new slate of  directors was elected. The 12 new directors voted-in the following  officers: Jack Heidema for president, Richard Tomkies for vice-  president, Blanche Perreca for secretary and Andy Tapio for  treasurer.  The new executive met for the first time on Monday, March 10.  The tone for the future was clearly set.  manding that they repay by  joining the club and working  for it. People get browned-off!"  Anyone who pays taxes  around the Harbour, club  member or not, is entitled to  benefit by the facility. The  trend now would seem to make  this possible.  "We have to stop listening to  the few who whine all the time,  and start listening to the many  who enjoy the hall," adds  Tomkies.  "I see the role of the direc  tors as one of stewardship,  administering the hall as a kind  of service for everyone who  needs it," says Heidema. "If we  work for them and think  positively, they'll respond with  the kind of support and help we  need. I have faith in people  round here!"  Let's hope the membership  responds to the new trend.  For further information  contact Richard Tomkies,  Vice-President in Charge of  Communications, 883-2492.  "For years, the Club has been  dogged by nitpickers and  negativity," says Richard Tomkies, appointed to handle  publicity. "Successive Boards  of Directors have given up in  despair. Members have been  turned off. The whole thing has  deteriorated into a quagmire of  trivial problems."  Few people realize the asset  the Club represents in the  community. The hall has floor  space exceeding 7,000 sq. ft.;  with the land, it is worth close  to a quarter-million dollars.  Cubs and Brownies, Seascouts,  Boyscouts and Girl Guides use  it regularly. As do senior  citizens' groups. The community band and the choir  come in. Innumerable smaller  groups use it for training  sessions, meetings and fund  raising activities. The big  auditiorium, with its ancilliary  kitchen and bar facilities,  attracts such social events as  Fuel spill on  Granthams Hill  the Fishermen's Home Coming  and the Firemen's Ball. Under  teh aegis of the Regional  District and the Club, the  Serendipity Playschool introduces preschoolers to the  learning environment���an invaluable leg-up according to  elementary school principal,  Verne Wishlove.Intheeastend  of the hall, a group of volunteers has established a well  patronized, well operated community library. The Thursday  night bingo sessions have  become a regular sell out. Now  the Coast's newest drama  group, based in the Harbour,  has expressed plans to rebuild  the stage facility, fully supported by its 70-plus and  growing membership.  "With such intense use,  you'd think the Club would be  the healthiest outfit up here,"  comments Tomkies. "Instead,  we find people bitching about  those who use the hall, de-  Twenty or 30 gallons of fuel  are estimated to have been  spilled on Granthams Hill on  Thursday night when yet  another heavy truck with a  driver unused to local roads  came to grief coming off the six  o'clock ferry.  The diesei fuel was spilled  when the equalizer line between  the two tanks was torn off when  the drive shaft broke.  Ed Meldrum of Totem Log  Handling was, as usual, called  upon to remedy the situation  and in fact was coming off the  same ferry in his car. "I was  speaking to the driver of that  truck on the ferry," said  Meldrum, "and, since he didn't  know the road I warned him  about the Shell corner where  we have most ofthe trouble but  I didn't think to mention the  Granthams Hill."  Meldrum explained that the  drivers unused to the area have  Corrbit, the Coca-Cola robot performs a dance to the delight of the young spectators  at Shop Easy while the ladies are absorbed with the grocery shopping.

In the  incident last Thursday the  driver of the truck found that  the hill was demanding more  changes of gear from him than  he could accomodate while  pulling a low-bed with 130,000  pounds of D8 cat and he was  forced to a complete halt.  When he tried to 'lift her off the  hill' he torqued out and the  drive shaft gave.  Meldrum explained that the  drive shaft was a virtual safety  feature in that it was the  weakest part of the truck and  easy to replace whereas the rear  end of the truck was not.  Because of the diesei fuel on  the road it was necessary for  Meldrum to bring his own low-  bed which first had to be  unloaded with a crane at  Fiedler's yard. The Totem Log  Handling truck then took the  D8 to its destination in Pender  Harbour.  From the time that the  accident happened at 6:00 p.m.  Ed Meldrum was involved with  the incident until he got home a  1:30 a.m. He estimated that  trucks hauling heavy loads with  drivers new to the area run into  similar touble either on the  Granthams Hill or at the Shell  Corner in Gibsons about eight  times a year. "We've sorted out  about 30 such incidents in the  last three years," said Meldrum,  "because the RCMP know that  either my son or I are close by."  After the heavy cat had been  transferred to the Totem Log  Handling truck, the empty low-  bed was hauled away by Ken  Fiedler's truck.  Meldrum is currently seeking  a licence to provide an alternate  freight delivery service to the  Sunshine Coast.  Regional Director David  Hunter, Chairman of the  Public Utilities Committee has  responded to letters received  from the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce protesting the closure of the  Gibsons Garbage Dump.  In a letter addressed to  Chamber of Commerce President Arne Petterson dated  March 12, Hunter pointed out  that the waste disposal problems ofthe Sunshine Coast had  been under review since 1975.  "At that time," wrote Hunter,  "the S.C.R.D. was operating  four class B dumps and could  not maintain a satisfactory  standard to satisfy the new  Pollution Control Board regulations. Many studies, committees and reviews were made in  1975 and 1976."  The Public Utilities Chairman went on to point out that  the S.C.R.D. had commissioned the engineering firm of  Dayton and Knight to study  and report recommendations  for our waste disposal problems that would satisfy the  Pollution Control Board of the  Department of the Environment. As a result of that study it  was recommended that dumps  at Gibsons, Sechelt, and Halfmoon Bay be closed down and  a new dump be located in  Sechelt. The decision, however,  was deferred at that time until  January 5, 1978.  On January 5, 1978, the  decision was again deferred to  give Director Jack Marshall,  representing the village of  Gibsons, time to discuss the  matter with the council of the  village of Gibsons.  Further studies into two  possible sites in Roberts Creek  revealed that these were not as  good as the site of the Sechelt  Dump and in April 20,1978 the  Public Utilities Committee  again   recommended   that  In Gibsons  "dumps at Gibsons,' Sechelt  and Halfmoon Bay be closed  and a new dump located in  Sechelt".  Special meetings were held  on June I, 1978, and again in  March of 1979 for public input.  At these meetings and at a  community forum held at  Elphinstone, continued Hunter, there was no presentation  made by or on behalf of the  village of Gibsons or the  merchants of Gibsons.  In addition to the above, the  Pollution Control Board admonished the S.C.R.D. for not  taking any action on the waste  disposal problem and queried  the need for four dumps. A  letter was sent in reply outlining the actions taken to that  point including another study  by another engineering firm,  McLellan and Underwood.  This latter report was again  discussed in March 1979 and  once again as a result, according to Hunter, the Public  Utilities Committee repeated  its previous recommendation  but the matter was again  referred back to committee for  further study at that time.  On May 24, 1979, the Pollution Control Board brought  to the attention of the Public  Utilities Committee leachate  problems at the Gibsons Dump  and finally, after consultation  with garbage site contractors  and garbage collection contractors, the decision to close  the Halfmoon Bay and Gibsons Dumps was made.  In his letter to the President  of the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce the  Chairman of the Public Utilities Committee invited comments or suggestions from the  Chamber and expressed a  willingness to attend a Chamber of Commerce meeting to  further explain the situation.  Ratepayers  discuss bypass  The first meeting of Gibsons  Renters and Ratepayers Association was held at the home  if Ian MacKenzie and first  order of business was the  election of officers.  Ian MacKenzie was elected  president, Betty Gisvold vice-  president, Vega Brannon secretary-treasurer.  The Association voted unanimously to congratulate publicly through the medium ofthe  Coast News, Mayor Goddard  and her council for the fine  business-like manner in which  they are conducting the affairs  ofthe Village.  The main item to be discussed was the Gibsons bypass. Ian MacKenzie made a  report and said, "as politics is  considered the art of the  possible we must consider only  that on which we are sure  everyone agrees". The route  proposed up Langdale Creek as  far as the Chamberlain Road  extension is agreed to by  everyone. Therefore we asked  only this of the Highways  Department: 1) Complete the  by-pass up Langdale Creek to  Chamberlain Road extension  and North Road. 2) A right  entertain  An enthusiastic drummer  got the Grade 8 band off with a  bang into a medley of tunes  from Jesus Christ Superstar,  causing a row of Grade 3 girls  to clap their hands over their  ears and the School Trustees  and parents settled down to  enjoy the education programme at Madeira Park.  The band, conducted by Mr.  Stanley Lewis, set the pace for  an interesting evening and were  followed by the gymnastic  students of Ms. Wendy Si-  monds.  It was nice to see some boys  taking part in this activity and  the children's obvious pleasure  in performing communicated  itself to the audience.  The Grade 3s, hands now at  case, recited their favourite  poem from their choral speech  class taught by Ms. Lisa  Broderick, a student teacher  from S.F.U. They reminded us  as they re-told the cautionary  tale of Godfrey Gordon Gusta-  vus Gore, the boy who never  would shut the door, a favourite of children in Victorian  England, how children of  succeeding generations enjoy  many of the smae things and  that children the world over  have much in common.  Susan Nichols and Lincoln Ford are the two local  representatives of Amnesty International. They are  shown beside part of their display at the Sunnycrest  Mall on Saturday.  Amnesty  International  Amnesty International's local organizers, Susan Nichols  and Lincoln Ford had an  information booth set up in the  Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons  last Saturday. The display  outlined the aims ofthe society  and was accompanied by film  interviews with political prisoners and those who were  working to make their living  conditions humane.  There are at the present time  about 500,000 prisoners of  of conscience incarcerated  around the world and it is the  objective of Amnesty International to ensure that they are  given their basic human rights.  Amnesty International was  founded by a British lawyer  Peter Benenson in 1961. It now  has more than 200,000 members in 111 countries. Representation is divided between  the communist block, the  western sector, and third world  countries. This division ensures  that it is a non-partisan  organization. The organization  operates by sending jurists to  controversial trials and bringing pressure lo bear on governments where the crime is one of  conscience.  In 1977 Amnesty International won the Nobel Peace  Prize for their work.  A second and different  display will be set up in the  Sechelt Elementary School on  Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30  p.m.  The address of the local  chapter is P.O. Box 1186,  Sechelt. More information can  be obtained by calling 885-  9798.

We hold no particular brief about the  location of such a by-pass but surely when  almost a dozen times a year some heavily  loaded vehicle comes to grief taking  Marine Drive from Langdale through  Gibsons it becomes apparent that a  reasonable by-pass is a necessity.  Wc understand that highway locations  are a controversial issue and that easy  solutions are not available. Nonetheless,  the total inadequacy of Marine Drive for  really heavy traffic is manifest and, of  course, the North Road by-pass for such  traffic is an absolute impossibility.  We agree with Ihe conclusions of the  recent meeting of the Gibsons Ratepayers  Association that, while the futuristic  highway system is something we can  possibly wait for some decent by-pass  route for heavy traffic is not. It is needed  right now.  The merchants of Gibsons should  welcome such a route because traffic  conditions in the Lower Village and in  front of the Sunnycrest Mall are yearly  becoming more and more hazardous and  the business life of the community could  only benefit if some initial re-routing of  through and heavy traffic could be  achieved.  One only has to consider the possibility  of those gallons of diesei fuel igniting  which were flowing on the Granthams Hill  last Thursday night to drive home the  compelling urgency of an adequate by-pass  route.  Reason required  It is to be hoped that the opposing sides  in the dispute over the closure of the  Gibsons Garbage Dump do not allow their  disagreements to harden into intransigence.  The problems of adequate waste  disposal are not unique to the Sunshine  Coast but are certainly exacerbated by the  fact that the population of this area is  spread out over 60 miles of ribbon  development. The distances involved for a  small population and the increasingly  stringent regulations laid down by the  provincial Pollution Control Boardarethe  cause of the closure and the cause of the  present discontent.  There can be no doubt that hardship is  effected on those who have been accustomed lo taking their own refuse to the  dump and the Regional Board should be,  even at this late date, willing to sit down  wiih representatives of the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce, identify  their problems, and help them to some  reasonable solutions if such can be found.  On the other hand, the members ofthe  Chamber of Commerce must recognize  that the Regional Board has been wrestling  for some years with a very real problem  and that they did not rush into a solution  that they knew would not prove to be  popular. It behooves the Chamber  members who are at the moment most  unhappy with the dump closures to  recognize that this is not a problem nor a  decision that the Regional Board sought.  That their solution may not be the best  possible might be true but the best possible  has not proven easy to find.  In his letter to the Chamber of  Commerce president last week, Public  Utilities Committee Chairman David  Hunter seemed to leave the door open for  further discussions on the matter. When  representatives of the Chamber get over  being mad about the closure and address  themselves to the problems of waste  disposal locally, again however, belatedly,  they will find, being reasonable men, that  there is a real problem here and a real  problem that provincial authorities are  insisting must be solved without delay.  Some way may be found to ease the  distress which is being felt but the clocks  cannot be turned back, the provincial  authorities cannot be forever flouted. Such  matters are a part of the price of progress  and growth that none seek more than the  Chamber of Commerce.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Don Lockstead and Minister of  Recreation and Conservation Bob  Williams have protested to Ottawa  about the end of the search for the  chlorine tanks lost recently in Mala-  spina Strait.  A public ceremony will be held in the  Gibsons   Legion   Hall on Sunday  afternoon to honour Dr. Hugh Inglison  the occasion of his retirement.  TEN YEARS AGO  An Easter Sunday meeting has been  called by the Gower Point Property  Owners at the request of members who  oppose the association's decision to  withdraw objections to Gibsons sewage plan.  A letter from Monte Aldous, Manager  of the B.C. Ferry system, has announced that his budget will not allow  for hostesses on the Horseshoe Bay-  Langdale run.  In a letter to the editor Raymond Hull  denies hostility towards Frank West.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Representatives of village councils  and chambers of commerce in the  Sunshine Coast area have been invited  to ceremonies on May 15 for the  opening of the new Powell River to  Comox ferry run.  Lack of a water system is holding up  development in Gibsons and the  formation of a water district is  suggested.  Local poet Peter Trower wins a cash  award in the North American Writers'  Digest poetry competition with his  poem entitled No Muse.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Garbage is in the news again in  Gibsons with the suggestion that the  village institute a controlled garbage  pickup and disposal service. Such a  service is already in place in Sechelt.  Sixty-five people attended a meeting  in Gibsons School Hall to hear a talk on  the dangers of radioactive fallout.  Premier W.A.C.

By order of Dr. Hugh Inglis, public  health officer, no school children will  be permitted to attend movies while  they are not attending school to  prevent the spread of flu germs. The  present epidemic is more severe than  has been experienced for many years.  An estimated 300 people attended a  reception in the new Bank of Montreal  premises in Sechelt.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Mrs. Annie MacDonald threw a  bombshell into the School Board  Saturday when she reported that  Pender Harbour parents were dead  against sending their children to  Gibsons on 'this dormitory plan'. She  was referring to a plan whereby Grade  11 and 12 students would be boarded  in Gibsons while attending school.  After two attacks against it had been  fended off, it now appears that  construction of Gibsons Fire Hall will  begin immediately.  The SS Prince Rupert is cutting the water along the Northwest Coast,  about 1920. While the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was under  construction, the company ordered two 3400-ton vessels from builders  in Scotland. The Rupert and its twin, the Prince George, were capable of  18 knots, and cruised at 16, with facilities for 1500 passengers. They and  other steamers of the line linked the new seaport ot Prince Rupert with  Vancouver, Seattle, and Victoria. The Great War proved disastrous for  the entire Grand Trunk enterprises, and in 1920 its rail and steamship  operations were absorbed into the federal government's Canadian  National system. As a CN vessel, the Prince Rupert continued to serve  the North Pacific Coast until the mid 1950's. Photo courtesy Francis  Stone.  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ��*  George Matthews  The perfect dogs have been  born on the Sunshine Coast.  The exact number has not yet  been determined due to the  exigencies of their birth, the  early configuration and colouring of these perfect canines is,  likewise, undetermined, but I  have every faith that in the  fulness of time my highest  expectations will be fulfilled.  Let me explain.  Dog lovers and occasional  readers of these mutterings  may recall that 1 announced  over a year ago that I was about  to produce the perfect dog. I  am one of those who feel that  mongrels are preferable to  purebred dogs. I am aware that  this proclivity puts me at odds  with many devoted dog folk  numbered among whom notably these days is fellow  columnist Maryanne West.  Maryanne is a believer in  purebreds and insists that  only disaster can await those  who cross breed. My standard  rebuttal is that, being the owner  of a boxer, Maryanne is already  more than half way towards a  canine disaster.  It is my contention that the  breeders of purebred dogs have  much to answer for, from  boxers which can't breathe  adequately, to Scots terriers  who have bred so long for the  great square head which is their  chief characteristic that they  can only give birth by Cae-  sarean section, to Irish setters  who have been bred so long for  their coat that they have the  intelligence ot a moth, and so  on down the list of man-  induced canine travesties.  So it was that 1 decided to  produce the perfect dog by the  risky process of cross breeding.  I do own a pedigree dog, Meg.  She's a border collie which  breed has been a working dog  bred for intelligence and work  for generations before their  recent adoption by the American Kennel Club. I also own a  large male dog of golden  beauty, great amiability, and  who is himself a product of a  Vizla father and a German  Shepherd and Samoyed  crossed mother.  When I acquired the border  collie some 18 months ago I  announced my intention to  produce the perfect mixture; a  handsome black and white and  golden dog of three-quarter  size which would combine the  wit and intelligence of the  mother and the philosophic  amiability and patience of the  father.  Last week the great day  came. A flu-ridden Burnside  was groaning his way down the  path towards the beach when it  became apparent that for  young Meg the time had come.  She drew my attention with a  single yelp and then dashed  underneath the house. I retraced my steps towards the  scene and come upon my two  young black cats contemplating a new born pup with  great curiosity.  I am not a practical man and  in the face of this sudden  development all of my latent  helpless ineptitude surfaced. I  realized that I must pick the  squawling manifestation of  newly-arrived life force up  before the cats could think of  something they wanted to do  with it. I squatted beside the  house and suggested to the  mother that she take responsibility but she was otherwise  engaged at that point.  No one was home so I  phoned the Coast News office.  "Aha, Burnside, I hear  you're having a brush with  death," said Manuane in reference to my influenza Greater  self-pity hath no man than an  ailing Burnside, yet I resisted  the temptation to indulge in my  usual shameless search for  sympathy.  "Forget death," I snapped in  my most businesslike Philip  Marlowe tones, "I'm having a  brush with birth." With the  poor mewling pup in hand I  sought immediate guidance.  I was assured that disaster  was not imminent. That all I  had to do was keep it warm and  near where the mother was and  she would soon retrieve it. It  was a cold and blustery day and  I couldn't leave it outside. 1  tried to keep it wrapped in a  towel but it squirmed and  fought with amazing ardour for  something more satisfying than  my towel, to wit a mother's  care. I was perplexed. I phoned  Fran in Pender Harbour and  she shortly arrived complete  with common sense.  "We must get it back to  Meg," said Fran.  "How? "said I.  The mother was crawled far  to the back ofthe house where  the clearance is about 18 inches  and after some difficulty we  spotted her in the beam of a  flashlight. Muttering imprecations and soothing noises  simultaneously, I belly-crawled  under the house carrying the  pup in my hand and visions of  mining cave-ins in my head.  The third practical female of  the day, that is Meg, immediately took charge of the pup  and my brief spell as mid-wife  was over.  Since then, some 12 days  ago, the little collie that finally  has something to look after has  stayed under the house with her  unseen family, emerging only  twice a day for brief affection  and much food. I cannot tell  you much about the one pup I  have seen except that it looked  very new-born and very vulnerable and that it seemed the  possessor of undeniable vigour  and determination.  I am persuaded, however,  that when they finally emerge  from beneath our house looking, as Joan Foster puts it, as  though their sweaters were too  big for them, that 1 will be  proven correct and Maryanne  West wrong and that my first  attempt at genetic engineering  will be proven to be a great  success and that the perfect  dogs will have been produced  here on the Sunshine Coast.  The line for puppies forms,  needless to say, on the lefi.  Nearing the end of my  studies at the University of  Victoria, I find myself a little  overwhelmed by end of term  assignments. That's nothing  new for mc; I'm usually  inclined to put off until tomorrow what I could have done  today. It seems, however, that  today is the tomorrow I  procrastinated about yesterday  and so this morning I have this  column to write as well as a  critique of a piece of educational research I've been reading.  While this study is like a  great deal of research in the  social sciences in that it  provides a blinding glimpse of  the obvious, it may be worth  passing along. So, while I'm  describing this study to you,  remember I'm killing two birds  with one stone or what my  administration professor  would call efficient time man-  agment or optimized decision  making processes.  In the study 1 have to  critique, a researcher in the  United States attempted to  look into the whole problem of  why it is that children with  attractive faces tend to get  better grades in school than  children with unattractive  faces.

Yeats  years but also from the experience of anybody who has ever  gone to school. I'm sure each  one of you can recall instances  where pretty children were  favoured by the teacher over  the children who weren't so  pretty. If you can't remember  back that far, just ask any kid  you know if this is true in his  school.  You might well ask why  someone would spend thousands of dollars and months of  valuable time finding out  something so obvious. I guess  the point is that finding out for  sure that teachers will often  favour the attractive children  will help to alert these teachers  to this bias in their treatment of  kids. As a result of studies like  this, most teachers now do  know about these biases and  try to guard against them. It's  interesting to note, too, that it's  not just teachers who are  influenced by a pretty face but  the students themselves tend to  favour their more attractive  classmates. Knowing these  facts, the teacher can make sure  that grades, favours and treatment can be distributed a little  more equitably than in the past  and if you happen to have an  ugly kid you can feel a little  more comfortable about how  he is being treated at school.  The way the researcher  discovered these fads is interesting in itself. In the first place  it was discovered about 20  years ago thai attractive kids  got higher marks than unat-  Iraclive ones. Knowing this to  be the case, the researcher  decided to try and find out  what kinds of classroom interactions occurred between teachers and their attractive and  unattractive students. He got  some independent adult judges  to look at pictures of some 300  kids and label them attractive  or unattractive. Once the kids  had been labelled in this way,  he sat in the classrooms of these  kids and recorded the number  of interactions, questions,  instructions, comments and so  on, that the teacher had with  the children during a class.  What he discovered was that  teachers interacted more often  with attractive children than  with their unattractive classmates. Not only this but, he  found that the interactions with  attractive students were much  more positive while the interactions with unattractive students tended to be more  negative. Further, the children  themselves appeared to differ  in that the attractive kids were  much more positive in their  interactions with the teacher. Letters to the Editor  Coast News, March 18, 1980  Log salvors objections  Editor:  The following is a copy of a  letter   sent   to  the   Director  Valuation Branch.  Director Valuation Branch  Ministry of Forests,  Victoria, B.C.  Regarding  the  proposed  changes   to   the  log  salvage  regulations; I wish to register  the following objections.  Section I-  Direct sales are important to  those of us who have the  facilities to sort and boom logs.  Large, heavy logs which Gulf  Log Salvage Association will  take only as pulp can be wired  up in a boom and sold at full  price. Even deadheads can be  disposed of in this way. While it  is stated that direct sales may be  continued, I would like to point  out, that to make something  economically infcasible is the  same as prohibiting it. That in  effect will be the result of this  clause. The proffered $2 per C  would not pay wages for the  time involved. The requirements that the licensee obtain  the "highest price" is unenforc-  ible, and if contravened, undetectable.  Section F Compensation-  states that we arc at present  receiving approximately 50%  for our share. This is not true in  this area���Howe Sound. My  last boom returned 63.3%. The  proposed 45% share in proceeds represents an 18% reduction in income, without  considering the dilution by  inclusion of poor quality wood  in the sales proceeds.  It is proposed that the money  thus taken from us be used for  debris control. This principle,  of taxing one small group to  pay for actions deemed to be in  the public interest is one which  should deeply disturb any  thinking person. The more so,  since this group has not  contributed in anyway to the  problem. If debris is truly the  problem it ir. maintained to be,  then the cost of control should  come out of general revenue, or  at least a more general tax, such  as one on boats, analogous toa  road tax for road maintain-  ancc.  To try to implicate one  group, eg. the loggers, is also  unfair. They contribute the  least to the debris problem, in  my opinion. Small debris  comes from mills and river  freshets. In our area, most of  the large debris consists of old  float logs and sticks turned  loose by owners of waterfront  property���the very ones who  are often most vocal about  debris! They share contributed  by loggers should be attributed  to the governments "clear-  cutting" policy, which forces  the logging of commercially  worthless wood.  In short, no one group causes  debris, and no one group  should have to pay for its  recovery. Especially not log  salvors.  Should the principle be  upheld, in spite of all fairness,  then 1 would point out that as  an inducement to salvage more  poor quality wood it is a face.  We now get 100% for low  grade wood, 90% for low float.  Even a log salvor can see that  45% of a slightly better price is  not 100%! (The $1.50 per piece  is negligible.) It may also  penetrate our dim brains that  the more poor wood we bring  in, the lower the average price  will be. Some incentive! It is not  stated where the $1.50 is to  come from. I wouldn't be  surprised if it was taken from  the average price, and we will  be paying for our own bonus!  There has been some speculation that by reducing the  returns from good logs, theft of  same will be made less attractive. I would point out that the  best incentive for theft is availability, and that���west of  Davie Street���there is nothing  more available than the unguarded bags off Port Mellon!  If one's bent lies in that  direction, it will obviously be  easier to maintain one's standard of living by pilfering one  or two more good ones than to  go cleaning beaches of debris.  Section I Ml  This encroaches on the  function of B.C. Log Spill.  #4���suggests that 'median'  be deleted. We already have  problems with people cutting  logs for wood, shakes, etc. If we  cannot legally remove storm  driven logs without permission,  our job will be made much  more difficult.  #5���has been in force, but  never���as  far  as  I  know-  enforced. Why bother?  Section O  There is some justification  for a restriction of hours in the  areas where it is now in force.  There is none at all in those  areas where there is neither  booming or storage of logs. We  often must work these unprotected areas up to and after  dark. To extend the restriction  to these areas because of the  possibility of theft in the others  is unfair and unnecessary. The  restricted areas should be  defined as at present.  In summation, I suggest that  the proposed amendments are  grossly unjust, inefficient for  the purpose claimed, and  unnecessary.  Sincerely,  Richard and Jo Hammond  By-pass response  Editor:  The following is an open  letter to Ian J. Mackenzie:  In 1974, a petition was sent  around and 1,200 names were  collected against what you are  calling the "Lower Highway  Official Choice". It was turned  down in 1976. Already the  Government in Victoria has  finalized the upper route, with  its easy access to the Mall and  Hwy. 101 via Gilmore and  Payne Roads.  Slings  (cont'd)  This was especially true for the  pretty girls who were inclined  to be just plain nice. The ugly  kids on the other hand were  more inclined to be negative in  their interactions with teachers.  A pretty good guess as to why  might be that these kids were  just treating other people the  way they were treated themselves.  If there's any message here  for anyone, I guess it is to get  your kid's teeth straightened,  keep telling him to comb his  hair and insist that he smiles a  lot, And here you thought all  you had to do was get him to do  his homework.  One of the main reasons then  and still against the lower route  is the fact that it passes through  designated farmland (of which  very little is left in B.C.)  whereas the upper route does  not.  One thing I must agree with  you on, and that is a bypass  must be built to alleviate the  traffic dangers in front of the  high school and Mall. But right  now with your advertisement in  the paper you could be setting  back that bypass by 10 years.  Why now try to divide the  community once again when  the upper route and all the  access roads have been finalized.  M.Frisch  Reunion  Editor:  In 1980, St. Ann's Academy  " in Kamloops will be celebrating  its Centennial. Anniversary  celebrations are planned for the  July 1st weekend, and we are  anxious to obtain current  names and addresses of as  many former Academic, Commercial and Music students as  possible.

V2C 2S7  Heritage  Editor:  Editorials and letters in the  pages of recent issues of the  Coast News relating to heritage  possibilities deserve careful  consideration. The suggestions  with regard to the old Inglis  House in Gibsons should not  fall on deaf ears. It is to be  hoped that the Gibsons Village  Council and the Chamber of  Commerce will institute appor-  priate action without undue  delay.  The Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce is to be commended  for their plans for Rockwood  Lodge in this regard, but the  Chamber and/or the Sechelt  Village Council should also  take cognizance of the even  older and more historic Whit-  taker House. It sits on valuable  commercial property, but it  could be moved to some other  location. It would be shameful  indeed if the building was  simply buried by wreckers  because no one cared enough to  save it.  Allan J.

The rolls are  trundled to the strap man  across a cement floor. His task  is to somehow position the  heavy rounds on two steel  bands and cinch these tight  with a baling machine. It  sounds simple enough on the  surface but there is a knack to it  that cannot be learned in five  minutes, even cold sober. In my  sodden condition, it assumes  the proportions of some Herculean nightmare. The haling  machines are of an unfamiliar  type and I cut my hands  frequently on the sharp edge  ol ihe straps. Someone tosses  me a pair ot gloves but these  lender me even clumsier. I  simply can't seem to keep up  wilh that inexorable bloody  machine, livery time I think  I'm getting ahead, it pukes  another lour rolls at me. I feel  like quitting but I'm furious  with my own stupidity so 1  lough it out. I work half the  ������hilt drunk and the rest of it  sick. It's hell on wheels all the  way. Finally and mercifully,  eight o'clock arrives and the  ordeal is over. 1 climb the long  hill to the bunkhouse like a  punchy boxer. And I swear on a  dozen imaginary Bibles before  I sleep that I'll never go drunk  to an untried job again.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  *  **  &&>  My subsequent shifts as a roll  strapper go considerably better. Next Saturday, we make  another expedition to Squaw  Landing. Pat Orban elects to  join us. Fortunately, he leaves  his many knives at home. On  this occasion, we have already  done a fair amount of imbibing before we even embark.  I am low on gas but assume wc  have enough to make the run. I  am badly misinformed. The  water is choppy and we make  poor time'. Just off the great  stretch of tidcflats and uncomfortably close to the mouth of  treacherous Squaw River, the  fuel-starved motor dies like a  dog. This is bad water and two  men have drowned in its  undercurrents, the previous  week. We are all well aware of  this as we sit looking dumbly at  each other. Of course, I still  have no oars and our stalled  craft seems to be bobbing  closer to the frothing river  mouth.  We're in no real danger but  the situation is looking to put a  serious crimp in our drinking  plans. Since I'm the boat  owner, the onus seems on mc to  try and do something about it. I  have unwisely worn fairly good  clothes but it is too late to  worry about that now. This  water is too damn chilly to  strip. I shed my jacket; climb  over thesjern and start kicking  ��*e$oaMowards shore.

This strikes my unhelpful  passengers as extremely funny.  In my manic, half cut state, I  can even see the humour in it.  But I feign affront. "No time for  levity," I chide. "This is a time  for prayer and meditation."  That really breaks them up and  the dizzy bastards laugh even  harder.  Soon and thankfully, I am in  waist deep water. It is still  about half a mile around those  piling-studded, weed-slimy  tidcflats to the town. There is  only one way to get there  without abandoning the outboard. I get Little Alto light mc  a cigarette and start pushing.  I'm soaking wet now and I  don't much give a damn. The  others offer to walk in across  the flats but I tell them they  might as well keep their feet  dry. And like some crazed  Volga boatman, I push my ship  of fools all the way to Squaw  Landing.  I wring my sopping clothes  out as best I can as we make for  a bar. Safe in a corner, I drip  dry myself to the tune of several  well earned beers. If the waiter  notices my sodden attire, he  doesn't comment. I guess he's  seen damp drunks before in  bibulous Squaw. The trip  proves to be as fruitless as the  last but Al and Co. are quick to  spread the boat pushing incident around when we return to  the mill town. The tale undoubtedly grows in the telling  and wins me a bit of minor  league notoriety around Cinnamon River.  All this time, the wharf  reconstruction has been progressing apace. Longshoring is  scheduled to resume in the  early fall. The months of  pointless work for basic rate  are beginning to pall. I'm  almost looking forward to  doing an honest day's labour  for some decent money. What  with between payday binges  and other foolish expenditures,  there isn't too much left of my  inheritance.  One thing about the yard  crew: you're never stuck in the  same spot for long. Our  random labours take us all over  the plant. Sometimes we are  sent to do clean up in the  chipper mill. The chipper itself,  fascinates me. The logs lurch  one by one down a long ramp,  hit a large, circular blur and  literally seem to dissolve. The  process of their disintegration  is remarkably smooth. The  'blur' is actually a series of steel  cutters moving at very high  speed but to my mind, whetted  by too much science fiction, it is  as though the logs are pushing  right through the walls of  reality itself into some alien  dimension. "They say a Chinaman went through there once,"  informs Little Al. "Wasn't  anything left of him you could  recognize except a few teeth." I  shudder. You always hear  stories like this around dangerous industrial machinery but  this one, I can well believe.  Pat Orban is growing increasingly restive. His bike  riding activities have drawn a  steady flow of complaints from  worried housewives and shift-  workers attempting to sleep.  Finally, the personnel manager  is compelled to summon Orban  to his office and request him  politely to cease and desist.  This is reasonable enough  under the circumstances and  Orban complies grudgingly.  But he is obviously rankled  over being grounded. Robbed  of this apparent hostility outlet,  he becomes snappish and irritable. "Suckers got no right not  to let me ride my sickle," he  growls. He is no pleasure to  work with anymore. Once he  threatens to punch me out on  the job over nothing. Al and I  start to avoid his company as  much as possible. Christl  Who's looking for this kind of  trouble? Spud Island Jerry  stays in the same bunkhouse as  Orban however, and continues  to drink with him off and on.  Until one night. He bursts into  the room afterwards to tell us  about it.        To be continued.

Her prose and poetry ranged from  the beaches of Mexico to the vacant lots of Hastings  Street.  Music Scene  by Mike Evans  While Punk Rock initiated a  new wave of modern music, it  was never really accepted as a  valid form. The violence,  degradation and hatred that  characterized Punk bands was  not particularly inviting or  marketable. Well, at least not  as ma rketable as other forms of  modern music. Punk really was  the scraping of the bottom of a  very large barrel of new  entertainment. A change of  attitude was needed. What if  the music became lighter  instead of more violent, if the  themes concerned adolescent  love instead of urban hatred, if  the band's appearance was  prettied up instead of stuck  through the cheek with a bobby  pin?  Enter The Cars. This band  was the first new wave band to  really make it big and attract  fans. It is certainly too much of  a generalization to say The Cars  were totally divorced from  some of the deep-cutting  images of their more violent  predecessors. Indeed, the lyrics  and tone of the first album  contained some fairly stark  observations of life and, particularly, sex. Just read the  words to "Don't cha stop" or  "You're All I Got Tonight" to  see what I mean. But all this  serious stuff was usually  couched in terms of less than  serious musical progressions���  in some instances it could be  called "Bop", the type of thing  the Archies used to do.  Their second album, "Can-  dy-O", is the same sort of idea,  though it hasn't enjoyed quite  the same success as theirdebut.  Now if you were to steer The  Cars a little straighter towards  the early sixties and so a little  more commercial you'd end up  with the Knack. This quartet is  strongly influenced by the early  Realties and as such there is no  trace of heavy overtones, violence, or anything else of a  serious nature. It's like a  transition that has come full  circle���the lacklustre confining  Disco giving way to the raw  energy and rebellion of Punk  which in turn mellowed and  commercialized in stages  through The Cars to the Knack.  The Knack really play the  Beatles imitation to the fullest:  same stage set-up, same instrumentation, same equipment  brand names, same style album  cover, same song style, the  whole bit. But most importantly, they're popular. They  may well be the most popular  New Wave band yet. The first  album got a lot of radio play as  a result of "My Sharona" and  sold well over a million copies  in record time. Now that's the  kind of popularity lacking in  Punk that denotes the level of  acceptability of New Wave.  The Knack has a new album out  which I have yet to hear. But  I've heard the single "Baby  Talks Dirty" and suffice to say  is far too similar to "My  Sharona" for comfort.  A short note: I had a chance  to see Steven Hubert and  Budge playing at the Wakefield  Inn. I have always been impressed by the strength and  quality of Steven Hubert's  voice and repertoire, but it was  an added pleasure to hear the  accompanying guitarist Rudge  Schacte. All those tricky little  fill-ins and jazz licks really  augmented Steven's work nicely. It was especially impressive  since most of Budge's guitar  playing was improvised. Great  stuff, Budge. /  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: Planet of communications Mercury, moves  forward again on Wednesday  indicating clearer messages and  fewer frustrating journeys.

I  ���lje Cttars 3Jnn  YOWS  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre ���������i  Off the shelf  by John Moore  The Chinese detective stories  I reviewed last week started  things ticking in my head and  I've spent most of this week  mulling over some of the  infamous and not so famous  true mysteries thai still chal- .  lenge the amateur detective.  Take, for example, the High-  Altitude High Heel mystery. A  Chinese expedition to Mount  Everest in I960 discovered the  remains of a I920's British  expeditions camp. Among the  debris they found a woman's  high-heeled evening shoe.  How did it get there? The  only iinsonable explanation so  far offered is that some climber  carried il along as a token or  favour of his lady love. Formerly knights errant on quest or  crusade had to content themselves with milady's scarf or a  scrap of perfumed lace. Even in  our enlightened times, when it's  hard to tell whose lingerie is  whose, this smacks of a decadent fethishism not entirely  consistent with the rugged  spartan image of the mountaineer. Think what a mystery  writer could make of it-  Armchair sleuths who find  such small mysteries beneath  them and only murder most  foul a fit subject for the exercise  of detective skill might begin by  pitting themselves'against thai  classic nemesis of detectives  and policement, "Spring-  Heeled Jack" himself. The  Ripper of Whitechapel. In a 10  week period from August to  November of 1888, Jack the  Ripper murdered five women  in the streets and alleys of  London's vice and vermin-  infested Whitechapel district.  All five women were prostitutes; all but one middle-aged  and in very reduced circumstances.  The murders were accompanied by posthumous mutilations which mounted in  savagery to Ihe point that one-  coroner refused to read the  results of his examination into  the public record at an inquest.  The murderer publicly taunted  the pqlice by mail and committed several of his atrocities on  streets that were patrolled by  constables at 15 minute intervals. ���  After his last and bloodiest  excursion, the murder of  "Black Mary" Kelly, the  Ripper struck no more. He was  never caught, never heard from  again, and his (or her) identity  never conclusively established.  No single criminal in history  has inspired such a wealth of  investigative and fictional  literature. Lately I've been  reading another overview of  the case, When London Walked  in Terror by loin \ (.���.. .���n.  (Avon Books. 1%S.>  The best iliii g about this  hook is thai the author has no  ixe to l. iikl. A poor choice of  words perhaps, but most  treatments ofthe case, fictional  >r investigative, are strongly  coloured by the author's preference for one of the official  half-dozen suspects or by the  revelation of yet another  would-be Ripper from the  shadows. Suspects have ranged  from possible heirs to the  Throne to Ihe local midwives.  There is much to be said for  the theory of Jill the Ripper,  Mullen points out. Midwives in  the poorer districts often  doubled as abortionists and  might easily have harboured  some demented grievance a-  gainst one or more of her  clients. Such a person would  have the advantage of being  beyond suspicion, able to move  about the streets at odd hours  and appioach the girls without  alarming them.  A young writer of detective  fiction of the time, himself a  medical man, as the Ripper was  suspected to be, Arthur Conon  Doyle*was consulted by Scotland Yard and said he believed  that the Ripper was a woman or  a man disguised as a woman.  CARSANDTRUCKS  Rental���Leasing  -Also-  Domestic & Industrial  Equipment  Sechelt next to the  liquor store  Gibsons at Pratt &  Hwy   101  otherwise he could not have so  easily avoided capture. Mullen  points out that the police had  an even more serious obstacle  lo contend with; their own  Commissioner, Sir Charles  Warren. Warren's ruthless  suppression of public demonstrations by the poor and  unemployed turned the bulk of  the population of the city  squarely against the police.  Mullen also reveals the name  of Scotland Yard's final suspect; a failed barrister named  Montague John Druitt. Drum's father was a doctor, a  teaching surgeon, and this is  supposed to account for his  son's rudimentary surgical skill  and anatomical knowledge.  His chambers at the Inner  Temple, which he never gave  up, were only a quick brisk  walk from Whitechapel and  account for his ability to  disappear quickly.  Further, Druitt is supposed  to have confessed publicly,  appearing in the street with his  face made up to resemble a  crude death's head, shouting "I  am Jack the Ripper". Oddly  enough, this is the least substantial piece of evidence  against him. So many people  confessed to the murders that  the police gave up considering  confessions completely. However, the murders ceased a-  bruptly and a month later the  body of Montague John Druitt  was fished out of the Thames,  his face still bearing Ihe crude  death's head markings.  The only problem with  Druitt as a suspect is the most  important one in all detective  work; motive. Mull< n observes  that Druitt was f i mi to hold  extreme political opinions  w here the condition ofthe poor  was concerned. While in college he may have done some  volunteer social work in the  Whitechapel district and later,  deeply moved by what he had  seen there, unhinged by failure  and his father's death and  urged by the brutality of the  police in suppressing demonstrations for reform, he committed the murders to draw  attention to the unspeakable  conditions of life in the stews.  The difficulty with this  motive is thai it operates in  reverse. The Ripper murders  did result in considerable  public breast-heating, more  sound than substance, as is  usual in such situations, but  proponents of this motivation  for the Ripper get caught in  their own net. On one hand  they have their man lucid and  astute enough to know thai a  series of brutal murders performed with overtones of  twisted and illicit sexuality  would accomplish what large  public demonstations could  not. Further, they would have  him sufficiently deranged to  commit acts which appalled the  most seasoned police and  medical authorities. Altruism  just doesn't work as a satisfactory motive, at least not  now. But in the Victorian  period, with its facade of  imperial capitalism masking  degraded industrial slums, its  public propriety and private  repression, the fundamental  schizophrenia of society, perhaps it will serve.  Whatever the case, Montague John Druitt is no more  satisfactory as a suspect than  many others. For Scotland  Yard the case is closed. For  amateur detectives it remains  open to this day.

This  event is sponsored by the Arts  Council and it is a must! The  following is an excerpt from a  CBC review of February 9,  I979 by Max Wyman, who is  the dance and drama critic for  the Vancouver Sun.  "Looking for a convenient  label for Terminal City, you  might pull out avant-garde or  modernist-experimental. But  what they are, simply enough,  is a group of individual artists  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  After a mushy late spring,  greenhouses are being aired  and readied, grubby winter  lawns are being raked and  presumedly all the flower  garden edges have been sharpened and gracefully curved.  Wiih ihe crocus finished the  tulips, daffs and heather are in  control.  Now is the best time for  pruning all your roses and a  little dormant oil spray, now,  can kill bug eggs and retard  mildew. When pruning roses,  cut back at about a 45 degree  angle removing at least half of  last years growth. Cut about  one inch above an outward  facing nice fat bud, clear the  centre of the plant and any  crossing branches. Try to shape  it nicely.  When sharpening flower  bed edges, use a square ended  shovel or a half-round edger  and make sure to leave a three  inch ditch around all beds. This  ditch keeps grass from encroaching and delineates your  garden shape. Remove grass  clumps, winter weeds,assorted  junk and lightly cultivate the  soil.  Time again to pay a cringing  visit to your most generous  gardening friend. Arrive bearing a bottle of wine or some  home preserves and ask how he  is before starting to whine  about  your  underpriviledgcd  supplyof perennials. If this  cheap device on your part fails  hot-foot it to the nearest plant  shop and check their supplies,  also check around for price  variations. Delphiniums, peony, oriental poppy, are great  and lor summertime spires of  colour remember spring bulb  Lupines. In yellow and rose  they will join the deep purple  Delphiniums and provide a tall  massed backdrop for your  annuals. Just a little bit of  money spent each week so that  you don't notice it and your  garden will soon be complete  and you can start in adding the  odd exotic.  To save money later start  your indoor seed boxes now.  Almost any container will do,  half milk boxes arc good or  saved flats. Fill them with good  potting soil and dampen (to  keep the seeds from floating  around), scatter the seeds  carefully and then add about  one eighth of an inch of soil,  dampen again and place on a  sunny window sill. In about 6  or 8 weeksyourlittle plants will  be ready for the garden...just  about when Ihe garden is ready  for Ihem. Try Schizanthus,  Cosmos, Zinnias, Impatiens,  Snaps and Giant Marigolds. In  fact this is an inexpensive way  to try almost anything. You've  only lost about 50c if you fail.  This small effort every year will  truly beat inflation at the plant  shops.

The company was founded in 1975, and has had  varying membership; currently, it numbers four���founder  members Savannah Walling,  Karen Rimmer and Terry  Hunter, and one newcomer���  since late last year���Barbara  Stowe, whose involvement in  the current program is comparatively small.  "Terminal City people consistently smash any preconceptions you might have harboured about dance, beauty,  conventional form, technique,  style. If you go to see their  repeat performances, and if  you're interested at all in  imaginative new advances and  jarring new insights in the  kinetic arts you should���if you  go, be sure to be ready for  anything. They are out for the  same things any artist wants���  your attention, your astonishment, your laughter, your  head...even if only for a little  while, and they admit no  boundaries.  "To the Terminal City people, dance can be���and is���  anything���movement, music,  sound, games, song, rhythm,  repetition���anything. They  push it to the edge of its  expressiveness, then somehow  turn it in on itself. Not  everything they do, by any  means, is a total success. But  even at the least of these times,  there's a sense of honest  trying���which may, in the end,  be more important anyway.  Because its surely that human  contact���that sense of genuine  attempt to make a connection���that is most valued in the  theatre.

The result is a draw.  Hunter, to appease those of us  looking for excitement, takes  himself on. Hunter wins. Stowe  makes a floating kind of  modern dance entrance���is this  where it is she asks���and then  the four of them are facing us,  popping questions out at us���  what is dance?

However, I received a couple  recently which are, I think,  worth taking seriously and at  least giving some thought to.  So I pass them on to you for  consideration.  The first came from a 16 year  old high school student, Sarah  Taubcr, who attends Argenta  Friends School at the north end  of Kootenay Lake.  When 1 was at school, chain  letters were in vogue but they  were mostly frivolous and silly.  School children in Ihe thirties,  as I remember il, were so  involved in their studies ol bygone ages, in school activities,  team sports, hobbies, crafts,  swimming etc. as to be almost  oblivious of what was going on  in the world outside. Boarding  school kids weren't allowed  radios or newspapers, liven our  books were carefully censored���no Harlequin romances or other nonsense! Judging  by Sarah's letter, today's kids  are a different breed and far  and away more involved���for  which we may all live to be  -thankful.  Sarah writes:  "Dear Friend,  "This is a chain letter, but not  the usual sort. It is my hope  that it will snowball and result  in a massive number of letters  to the government, opposing  further development of nuclear  technology.  "I am a high school student.  For a long time I've fell that  something needed to be done to  stop the overwhelming danger  to our world from nuclear  technology. But I didn't know  what I, as one individual,could  do. Now I am writing this letter  because I'm convinced that if  enough people write to the  government, a change will be  made.  "Problems of Ihe development of nuclear technology  include: increases in cancers  and genetic problems, lasting  for generations; potential for  world annihilation; too much  capital tied up with it; the  supply of uranium for reactors  will run out in a few decades.  There are alternatives to nuclear power: solar power; wind  power; fuel from plants grown  on otherwise unusuable land;  and others. Government funds  are now being used to develop  nuclear technology, and could  be better used to develop these  alternatives.  "If you agree, write to your  MLA or MP or Congressman  and to others in your federal  government and write to six (or  more!) or your friends and ask  them to do the same, and write  to their friends...Or simply  copy this letter and send it to  them. If we all do this, we have  the power to convince the  government to stop nuclear  development.  "Yours, in hope of a nuclear-  free future, Sarah Tauber,  Argenta Friends School, Argenta, B.C."

By Pender Harbour �� District  Ratepayers Association Publicity Committee  An old controversy may be  warming up in Pender Harbour  with renewed activity at Pope's  Landing, site of a proposed  marina/motel complex which  has been a source of continuing  concern to local residents for  the past eight years.  A revised plan for the  development was presented to  the Regional District last June  calling for a $1.3 million  project involving a SO-boat  marina, store, restaurant, and  motel in a six-level complex  overhanging the shore, but  little was heard after the Area A  Planning  Commission raised  Students of the Pender Harbour Alternate School are shown at work clearing up  around Brightside Resort near Garden Bay last week. See story below.  Students help out  The students and staff of the  Pender Harbour Alternate  School have been active during  the month of March in projects  of community help. Teacher  Bruce Forbes told the Coast  News last week that the projects are seen to be of real  benefit to the students as well as  to members of the Pender  Harbour community.  "The students wanted to  help," said Forbes, "because it  would enable the students to be  seen as better people within the  community. Secondly, they  wanted to help because the  community has been very  helpful towards the Alternate  School in a variety of ways.  And thirdly," said Forbes,  "they wanted to help because  they felt that the work experience would be valuable."  One resident of the Harbour  who is most grateful to the  students is Mrs. Shirley Falcon-  bridge of Brightside Resort  near Garden Bay. A recent  illness has incapacitated Mrs.  Falconbridge's husband and  many of the routine seasonal  clearing jobs around the resort  had been necessarily neglected  until the arrival of the willing  helpers.  "Please be sure that you say  how much I appreciate the help  the students have provided,"  said Mrs. Falconbridge in a  conversation with the Coast  News. "I really have appreciated it."  Other projects already undertaken by the Alternate  Students include putting new  windows on the Bargain Barn  for the Pender Harbour Hospital Auxiliary and more  projects are planned during the  balance of the month.  "The idea," said Bruce  Forbes, "is to be of assistance to  anyone in Pender Harbour who  needs some Help." Future  projects involving the clearing  of bushes in Madeira Park and  the turning over of a garden  patch for an elderly lady near  the Madeira Park Elementary  School.

Returning from a Regional  District meeting last week Area  A Director Joe Harrison was  somewhat disturbed to have  learned the Regional Planning  Department has been holding  further discussions with the  Pope's Landing developers  without consulting him and  had even gone as far as  scheduling a public meeting on  the issue which would have had  very little public notice.  "I don't know how far Bill  Lindsay, the planner, has gone  in encouraging the developers,  but if he gave them the  impression this project is  acceptable to the local public or  to me he has done everyone a  disservice," Harrison said.  Harrison said the flies of  letters opposing any type of  large complex on the cramped,  rocky site at Pope's Landing is  thicker than for any other  project proposed in the Pender  Harbour area. "The District  cannot possibly claim to be in  doubt about how the community fells on this one,"  Harrison said. "The opposition  has been vociferous and sustained, and I have made my  own feelings clear at every  opportunity."  Basically, Harrison said, the  project represents "gross overdevelopment of a very limited  piece of property" resulting in a  series of problems from road  congestion to pollution to  disruption of the exclusively  residential surrounding neighbourhood.  "What land they have will be  almost entirely covered by  either the complex itself or  parking facilities. There is no  backup land for sewage disposal so naturally they want to  run their outfall into the salt  water. This is something the  people of Pender Harbour  simply cannot accept. We have  reached the point where we  have to say no more pollution  of our Harbour.

Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  Interpretation of one person's thoughts by another is a  risky and sometimes hazardous  business���even if the interpreter is closely acquainted  with the thinker.  The problem is not an easy  one, and it has its roots in the  individual makeup or the  individual���the biases, prejudices, traditions, teaching and  training. Even if all those  characteristics are reasonably  matched, there are still the  spiritual characteristics to be  considered, and these are far  more difficult to match up,  expecially if the medium of  exchange is the written word.  Nevertheless the problem  remains essentially the same for  the interpreter, no matter what  the medium of exchange, and  no matter how slight the  acquaintance. The interpreter  must be able to get inside the  subject's head, and look out at  the subject under discussion  through his or her eyes, and  with his or her mind and spirit.  Obviously, this can be a  tremendous task, especially if  the interpreter is working on  subject matter that is out of his  or her field, that is the product  of another milieu, another  culture, and even another time.  The project then, as many good  literary critics know full well,  becomes a tough and demanding task, especially if the  interpreter has a high degree of  integrity, and wishes to interpret faithfully the thoughts,  ideas, aims and ambitions of  the writer.  It is work that demands of  the interpreter the utmost skill,  dedication and enterprise.  Often the interpreter must  know foreign languages, history, ethnology and other areas  of knowledge, in addition to a  good workmanlike ability in  his or her own language,  grammar, sentence structure,  etc.  Many fine interpreters, especially interpreters of history,  look down their noses at any  other than primary documents  in their research, and repudiate  any translations or secondary  documents as being too far  away from the source to be  reliable. There appears to be  good reason for this attitude, if  the interpreter is desirous of  arriving at the intent of the  writer, with some authority.  Consider then, an interpreter  that would set out to interpret  faithfully a collection of documents, the authorship of which  is largely unknown! The documents date over a period of  more than 1,000 years, and the  most recent is nearly 2,000  years old The documents were  written in at least two different  languages which are now  largely archaic, and only  minute scraps of the original  documents exist.  The major collections of the  documents which are available  are largely fourth and fifth  hand translations, at least, and  most of them are heavily edited  and interpreted, in many cases  by editors and interpreters of  another age and culture than  the writers. Add to this formidable array of barriers to  good interpretation the fact  that the subject matter is of an  esoteric nature that rendered  the writings largely unacceptable except to a narrow readership, even in itsancient times of  origin, and you have a task  worthy of the name, titanic!  Yes, this is the Holy Bible,  written originally from about  1,000 B.C. to 100 A.D. in a  large collection of documents  that were not collected into one.  book for hundreds of years,  and, even then, the collections  were in a language other than  the original documents. The  English versions of the Bible  today may very well be interpretations of translations of  interpretations and the interpreter may not have the  slightest idea of the original  language, and only speculation  on the original writer's identity,  time of writing, ethnic milieu,  etc.  How then can today's interpreters of the Bible say with  such authority and certainty  that they know exactly what a  certain text means in today's  western civilization?  In many cases, it is only with  a great amount of audacity!  Many interpreters, with only a  rudimentary command of the  English words in the text,  nevertheless claim to have an  uncanny grasp of the exact  meaning ofthe unknown writer  in that dim and cloudy past.  In other cases, it is only with  a great deal of timidity! Many  interpreters, awed by the task,  simply render their own opinions in gingerly fashion, admitting to a lack of knowledge,  and basing their 20th century  conclusions on the ancient  writings without the courtesy  of an investigation of the  background, but admitting  their inadequacy for the task.  In still other cases, academicians with a wealth of  background in ancient languages, archaeological findings, ancient history and access  to many of the recent findings  of ancient texts, still manage to  come up with interpretations  that appear to be fine scholarly  jobs, but so inconclusive as to  leave the reader uncertain.  Where, then, can we find a  good interpretation ofthe Bible  for today? Are the average  readers ofthe Bible to stumble  around in the dark, and never  be able to find some key to the  writings of that most precious  book which have stood the lest  of time and the onslaught of  skeptics, critics, interpreters,  and misinterpreters for 2,000  years only to come up victorious?  Anyone who says there is an  easy answer and can prove it,  should hire out to the legion of  Coast News, March 18, 1980  furrowed-brow ministers who    their command  enter the pulpit every Sunday  morning to unravel one small  text   for   their   parishioners,  conscious   of   the   awesome  nature of their task, and yet  called to face up to that task!  But there is an answer, and  (praise the Lord!) many of  those furrowed-brow pastors  have found the answer!  They acknowledge with humility that they are inadequate  to the task of approaching the  project intellectually, but they  still submit joyfully to long  hours of study and preparation  for that Sunday morning  odyssey. They study up to two  hours for every minute they  intend to spend in Ihe pulpit,  and they use every resource a  7j  Then they call upon God's  Holy Spirit, the one factor  which they and their ancient  writers have in common, and,  God willing, they come up with  the answer���"God's Word to  His People".

Let's not  forget that Saint Patrick would never even have  known what to do with all those snakes had he not had  Saint David as his mentor.  The Irish are not renowned for their contributions to  the world of international cuisine but one great  contribution they have made of course is that  delectable drink���Guinness. There is nothing to  compare with the satin smoothness of draft Guinness  slaking the thirsty throat. I've never had the pleasure  of tippling in Ireland itself but I hold fond memories of a  pub I used to frequent in Tufnell Park in London full of  black and white tiles and engraved windows and  talking Irishmen���and of course, draft Guinness!  Something that goes well with Guinness���draft or  otherwise���or even B.C. beer���or even a good strong  cuppa���is soda bread. It's a thick crusty loaf, delicious  eaten hot from the oven with butter melting all over it,  and slices of cheese. It's really easy to make and really  is a filler.  Irish Soda Bread  4 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt  I teaspoon baking soda   1 1/2 cups buttermilk  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease baking tray.  2. Sift dry ingredients into bowl and beat in buttermilk  with a wooden spoon until it will form a ball. I find I  often need an extra quarter cup of buttermilk, but  the mixtuie shouldn't be too soggy.  3. Put the dough on a lightly floured board and shape  into a loaf about eight inches in diameter and about  one and a half inches thick.  4. Put the loaf on the greased baking sheet and mark  a 1/2 inch deep X in the top.  5.  Bake the bread for about 40 minutes or until the  top is golden brown. Best eaten hot.  There is of course one other dish for which the Irish  are famous and that is Irish Stew. I always found this  was rather an insipid looking dish until I found it's  traditionally served with pickled red cabbage. I also  sprinkle freshly choped parsley on it just before  serving.  v:  Traditional Irish Stew - Serves 4      s-f  6 medium potatoes  3 medium onions  3 lbs. lamb  1 teaspoon salt  pepper  1/4 teaspoon thyme  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch slices.  2. Chop the onions (coarsely).  3. Trim any fat off the meat and cut into one inch  cubes.  4. Place half the potatoes in the base of a Dutch oven  then put in the other ingredients. Place the  remaining ingredients on top. Add enough cold  water to cover ingredients. Cover.  5. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and  cook for about an hour and a half. Check the water  now and again and add more if necessary.  If you missed Saint Patrick's Day, you can always  celebrate on Saint Shelagh's Day which comes the day  after. This good lady was apparently Patrick's sister,  mother or wife���no body knows for sure. Such is the  luck of the Irish! Mind you, those fellows at Tufnell  Park didn't need any special days on which to  celebrate! ., _ .    _    . ,,   _  Happy Saint Patrick s Day  Nest Lewis  (former Home Economics teacher)  Day by day. item by item, we do more tor you in  prouiding uariety. quality and friendly service.

Pharmaceutical Services  Last week I wrote an article about the mix of  non-foods that we carry. It ended with a "jab" at  drug chains, who while lobbying against food  stores carrying non-prescription drugs, carry  more and more groceries.  My arguments in this connection are not new  nor mine alone. I am one who likes to examine  and question issues, especially regulations  which tell me what I must do to protect me! I can't  see, for example, why 222's��, or Contact C��, or  Gravol�� pills sold off my shelves are any more of  a health hazzard than when sold off a self-serve  counter in a drug store. I believe we have allowed  ourselves in many ways to be "boxed in" by  power-brokers aided and abettedbycommittees  of "do-gooders" all too ready to compel us to do  those things that they believe will make us live  longer.  I was called by John Shaske of Gibsons Clinic  Pharmacy, and informed that while he agreed  with me as to the problem that I outlined, he was  not in agreement with my views. It so happens  John and I have had a very fine rapport, and I was  able to tell him quite truthfully that his operation  was certainly not the type I was "jabbing" at. In  tact his is the specialist type that I said that I felt a  sympathy for. The Clinic Pharmacy provides an  exclusive pharmaceutical service. John, as  Manager, gives a very outgoing and advisory  service which I have personally received and  have overheard him providing. In fairness, I want  to give space to John's viewpoint.  "Protection of the public health is a pharmacist's main concern. If the medication is  important enough to be used, it Is equally  important that the product is explained to the  user. Our role in the health profession is  governed by the Pharmacy Act of British  Columbia.  "The Act has provided for the distribution of  non-prescription drugs, There is a large  comprehensive list of products in this Act which  any retail store can sell. These drugs are very  safe products used to treat "self limiting"  diseases by relieving the symptoms.  "Another part of the Act lists medication which  must be sold within 20 feet of the dispensary.  This enables the pharmacist to participate in the  sale and counsel customers which is not  possible in a general retail outlet. Often the  consumer purchases a drug due to easabillty of  obtaining the drugs and advertising. For  example there are tive basic types of laxatives  Each type works by a different mechanism of  action The best product to use depends on the  probable cause of the constipation. Only a  physician or a pharmacist should assist  someone in obtaining the proper laxative to  solve their particular problem.  "A third part of the Act lists the medications  behind the counter. The list includes 222s��.  Gravol*, Benadryl', and vitamin products  containing iron.  "222's* contain codeine, a narcotic which has  been abused many times. Benadryl* is an  antihistamine which causes drowsiness in a  great number of people. A warning printed on  the bottles is not sufficient and must be  reinforced by a pharmacist warning the  customer of the effects. Dimenhydrinate  (Gravol��) is proven to be abused. If these drugs  were sold by any retail store there would be no  control.  "Statistics show before iron preparations  containing more than a minimum amount of iron  were placed behind the counter, hundreds and  hundreds of child overdoses due to lack of  control were caused.  "Customers should select a pharmacist just as  carefully as they select their doctors and  dentists. A pharmacist should 1) counsel Ihe  customer on all aspects of their medications,  2) keep a record ot all medications received and  allergies the patient has If a customer is not  receiving the full service a pharmacy has to offer  they should select another pharmacy "  Thank you John for your response and  viewpoint I like your store because it is a  pharmacy  I still say that many drug stores, after  successfully eliminating grocery store competition on grounds of consumer best interest,  do sell the same products out in the open,  without the consumer guidance that the Act  envisaged.  -J.JwrT<--, WNi  Coast News.

The job was expected to be sufficient to keep the mill  'intake at the left and the fish ladder on the right free-running for at least three years.  After the heavy rains this winter, the gravel had built up to a height of two feet above the  dam. The second picture shows the scene after dredging. Machinery was brought in to  clear two channels, one for the intake and one for the fish ladder. It is hoped that by  keeping the bar in the middle of the river, it will be easier to keep the channels free.  Students return from Toronto  Four of the 25 Pender  Harbour Secondary students  just returned from a week spent  in Toronto last month on the  first part of an exchange project  with students from that city.  Coreen Brown, Ginger Clark-  son, Lisa Garrison and Jerry  Netzlaw gave an interesting  report of their experiences,  illustrated with slides.  The trip was sponsored by  Open House, Canada, an  agency of the federal government set up specifically to  support and encourage such  student exchanges and to help  with funding for worthwhile  projects. While the benefits to  each individual of such and  exchange cannot easily be  assessed it was evident from the  students' reports that they had  found themselves in a totally  different environment, many of  Gardening  Continued from Page Five.  dwarf as they rarely amount to  much and remember lhat  Nasturtiums, our faithful  friends, are sown directly into  the ground around fences,  gates, large rocks and trees, as  well as where you want them to  fill an awkward spot in the  garden.

Even a brief stay in the  Bathurst, Bloor, Spadina area  where those of northern European ancestry are few and far  between adds another dimension to one's understanding of  what it means to be a Canadian.  The students had enjoyed the  big city, the CN tower, Casa  Lorna, Queens Park, City Hall,  the Eatons Centre, a day at  Niagara Falls and had great fun  travelling by subway. Even  though Toronto has had a  "mild" winter the Pender  Harbour students felt the  unaccustomed cold and it  didn't sound as though many of  them had become converts to  the eastern city.  They're now looking forward to and planning for the  visit of their Toronto friends in  June���imagine growing up in  Toronto with only the Islands  and High Park nearby and  coming to Pender Harbour?  But maybe, they'll miss all the  city noise and won't be able to  sleep for the quiet and be as  glad to return to familiar bright  lights.  Environment  Because of their significant  danger to human health and  the environment, Polychlor-  inated Biphynels were the first  substances regulated under the  Environmental Contaminants  Act in 1977 to help protect our  environment.  What are the ingredients  which go into making a successful holiday? There must be  a thousand answers to that  question, depending on the  person involved.  One would wish to shuffle  between bed and beach; a-  nother would require a daily  overload of eating, sleeping,  lovin' and eight nights a week  of 'super-whoopee'!  Others would only want a  quiet nook, an enchanting  book���and thou! Alone in the  wilderness!  And what about the sport  who would thrill to catching  the biggest fish; a trophy head;  or conquering the highest  peak!?  And then ihere are the others  such as we who only wish to  climb into the family chariot,  point her nose in any direction  that would lead us into new  highways and byways of other  lands; to try the gourmet  cooking of strange and exotic  foods; and to sleep in a variety  of beds that wrack your back,  crick your neck and roll you  out of the sack in the morning  looking like the pretzel you had  been nibbling on the night  before. We had a taste of all of  them!  Our holiday didn't turn out  as we had planned because we  really hadn't planned it. Oh, we  did have intentions of driving  the Baja Peninsula as far south  as we could, take a ferry over to  Mazatlan, and return through  Arizona. And soak up all the  Mexican sun we could along  the way, along with frijoles,  tortillas and tacos.  But just prior to our arriving  in San Diego, there had been a  torrential downpour that had  washed out small communities  and messed up water systems.  Water is a problem at any time  in Mexico, so that among other  things changed our plans.  We stayed eight days in San  Diego basking in the sun in the  lee of a quiet rock. We watched  what seemed to be most ofthe  population of San Diego  jogging, biking, skate boarding  and roller skating, and especially water surfing.  You can stand on Crystal  Pier at Pacific Beach on most  any day and watch hundreds of  surfers as far as the eye can see.  of course, they all wear wet  suits as the water is a bit cool  for skinny dippin'!  We visited the many beautiful marinas and had hoped to  get out on a whale watching  charter. During January and  February the great gray whale  can be seen lazily swimming  not far off shroe, convalescing  in that maternity ward of the  Pacific after giving birth to  their gigantic offspring, building up their strength and  endurance for their long swim  north in the spring.  But the day we picked to go  the sea was too rough on the  outside. The trip wascancellcd.  So we were given a small tour of  the fleet by strolling along the  floats and listening to a young  skipper, singing happily as he  swabbed his decks; "Come all  ye young fellers who follow the  sea. Yo! Ho! Blow the man  down!"  That rough sea on the  outside brought storm warnings of foul weather to come.  Next day was cloudy and rain  was in the offing. Time to head  inland and sec some desert  country.  On our way to Phoenix,  Arizona we passed through  many large mobile home retirement centres in Sun City,  Hemet, Beaumont, Banning  and Palm Springs, it is really a  way of life in southern California, and at this time of year,  space can be hard to come by.  All that beautiful weather  looks lovely to a northerner,  but come spring, I'm sure that  the mountains, trees and  waterways of our B.C. coast  would be reaching out to us and  the pull of the north would  bring us back!  Phoenix is another city of  large mobile home parks for  retirees, many of them populated  by  Canadians.

Again the rain chased us out  of Phoenix but this time we  were heading west into it as we  porpoised our way across the  flooded dry washes of Arizona  and Nevada toward Las Vegas.  On the outskirts of Vegas we  began to run into the gimmicks  that are used to attract the  suckers to their dens of iniquity. And what 'come ons' they  are!

"FOR-HIRE" CARRIERS  In order to avoid the impact of sudden and substantial increases in the price of fuel, such as that which occurred  when the last Federal Government announced its budget increases in excise and federal fuel taxes to take  immediate effect, as well as anticipated increases in the wellhead price of crude, etc., this Association has been  involved in ongoing negotiations with the Motor Carrier Commission/Branch since last December.  These negotiations have now been successfully concluded and carriers are now advised that they may apply fuel  surcharges to their billings within 48 hours of establishment of increases of 5C or more per gallon, providing you  follow the proper procedures.  Attached to this bulletin are the following papers:  a) Motor Carrier Commission Order No.11-80.  b) Freight Tariff Surcharge Table.  c) Sample Fuel Surcharge Supplement Forms. (Pay particular attention to Note 2).  Read the attached papers carefully. If you are eligible to take any announced fuel surcharge, you cannot do so  without first receiving either direct notice from the Association office or through your tarriff filing agent, of the %  increase applicable.  If you do implement a fuel surcharge you must, within thirty days document the increases taken in either of the  following ways:  1) Notify your tariff filing agent to submit a supplement on your behalf.  2) Submit your own supplement in five copies to:  The Superintendent, Motor Carrier Branch  4240 Manor St.,  Burnaby, B.C.  We suggest that it is only good and fair business practice to notify your regular accounts of your intentions.  You will note in the preamble to the Motor Carrier Commission Order that the date of February 15,1980 has been  established as the base date of the posted tank wagon price including all taxes. Increases in fuel costs after  February 15, 1980 will determine the percentage of fuel surcharge which carriers may assess on their tariff  charges.  Any questions regarding the foregoing should be made to (a) your tariff filing agent or (b) the Association office if  you do not utilize the services of a filing agent.  DO NOT MISLAY THESE IMPORTANT PAPERS. YOU WILL NEED THEM  WHEN THE FIRST AND SUBSEQUENT SURCHARGES ARE IMPLEMENTED.  PENINSULA TRANSPORT LTD.  886-2284 12.  Coast News, March 18, 1980  Veteran of the Horn  Sailing classes planned  by Ian Corrance  Some people's idea about  sailing is to leave the Royal  Vancouver Yacht Club, head  over to Victoria and join the  rest of the elite for the annual  Swiftsure Race to Ucluelet. If  this is not your cup of tea and  you would rather be wafting  along on a warm summer day  in the Gulf, then read on.  Sailing in many cases is  looked on as a rich man's sport.  This is not necessarily so, but  the initial expenditure, though  not prohibitive to many, is too  much to spend on what may  turn out to be a whim.  For the would-be sailor, who  i> a bit wary of a large capital  outlay, Ihere is hope in sight.  Hans Petersen in Gibsons will  he offering a sailing course this  spring al very affordable rates.  The course will include both  ihe practical and theoretical  aspects of coastal sailing. On  the practical side, he will teach  seamanship on his 26-foot  Thunderbird sloop. In his  basement classroom he will  teach the navigational skills  required for the safe handling  of a vessel. Along with this he  will give instructions on knot  lying, splicing, and other basic-  skills which will be of assistance.  Hans comes from a sailing  family which goes back several  generations. He was born on  the North Fresian Island  situate:1 between Germany and  Denmaik. On November 26,  1937 at the age of 16, he  shipped   out   on   a   German  merchantman, the Priwall  under Captain Adolf Hauth.  The Priwall was a 108 metre  four-masted barque.  They left Germany on a 9-  month trip around Cape Horn  to Chile, where they loaded up  with guano and saltpetre. On  the voyage over, they rounded  The Horn in a record five days  and 14 hours.  His description ofthe voyage  around The Horn would more  than cause the average sailor to  stick to safer coastal waters. In  Ihe sailing ships it was impossible to wear heavy over-  clothing as il would gel tangled  in the rigging. Gloves were also  out,as you lost your sense of  feel. For five days they were  soaked lo the skin. To gel rid of  some of Ihe water, they would  stand on their hands and let the  waler pour out of their collar.  Although they were not  aware that they were on a  record breaking trip, the loss of  11 sails was a pretty fair  indication that they were being  blown along at a fairly good  speed.  Shipboard' discipline was  kept well in control by the  captain. If two men got into an  argument, it was held in  abeyance until Sunday. The  hatchcover was used as a ring,  both men had their fists  wrapped with wet towels and  they fought until the first blood  was drawn. While looking  through one of his nautical  books, Hans pointed out the  picture of an old merchant  skipper who was a fiend for  running every possible inch of  canvas. He would run so close  to Ihe limit that the men would  become afraid and want to reef  in. The captain would stand on  the poop deck and threaten to  shoot any man who went near  the sails. Fortunately the age of  power has curtailed this type of  tyranny somewhat.  After picking up the cargo in  Chile, the Priwall had arranged  to meet with a sister ship the  Admiral Karpfanger and race  her back around The Horn.  They made radio contact once  briefly on their approach, then  lost it again. The Admiral  Karpfanger was lost to the rest  of the world, too. She was not  heard from again. Rounding  The Horn from west lo east is  the worst pari of Ihe trip. The  waves overtake the boat and if  the ice Hoes are in Ihe area, they  can be washed on to the deck  clearing everything before  them. This is what they expect  happened to the Admiral Karpfanger.  Hans has a total of 11 years  under sail in merchantmen.  During the 1939-45 war he  sailed with the German Navy in  minesweepers as a navigator.  He would like to start with  beginners and others interested  in coastal cruising and is more  interested in giving people a  good grounding in the fundamentals, than teaching racing  skills. What he hopes to achieve  with the class, is to bring this  type of sailing within reach for-  the average working man.  If you are interested, give  him a call at 886-9098.  Cancer Forum  The Sunshine Coast Unit of  the Canadian Cancer Society  will present a public forum on  Monday, March 24 at 8:00 p.m.  at the Chatelech school in  Sechelt.  The forum will include a  panel discussion on the prevention and early detection of  cancer; a Film; a description of  the assistance available to  cancer patients and a display of  educational material.  Hans Petersen of Gibsons will be offering sailing instruction in Gibsons this spring. He  first sailed in the Priwall around Cape Horn on a record breaking voyage in 1938.  CHsting^shed speaker  Power squadron to meet  bv Roh  Maynell  It has been said that "There is  nothing more enjoyable than  messing about in boats." Also  I've heard that "a boat is a hole  in the water into which you  continually pour money."  I subscribe to both philosophies and on the basis of our  God-given intellingcncc and  knowledge gained through  training and personal experiences (both good and bad) we  should all be enjoying this  fabulous recreational pursuit  on the Sunshine Coast. However, I keep reminding myself  not to identify my pursuit of  happiness entirely in retirement, as living in the charming  Village of Gibsons.  Since my wife and I settled  here permanently two years  ago, we have learned to smileas  we pass a rock on Highway 101  emblazoned with the admonition, "MID POINT". When I  read about the political problems of ihe Sunshine Coast, I  view the marker point as an  admonition to travellois from  both directions rather than a  mathematical division of the  ferry-to-ferrj terminal distance.  Transferring my membership i.i the Canadian Power  Squadron to the Sunshine  Coast when we arrived here  enabled us to gain a host of  good friends who avoid discussions of regional differences.  We pursue knowledge of our  boating recreation, dedicate  ourselves lo helping the oilier  guy and gal���and have a lot of  lun doing ii. from Landgale lo  Egmont.  We are well organized, under  good leadership and are NON-  PROll TAHI.I-: as a Sunshine  Coast oriented educational  organization,  NOW HEAR THIS1 Commander Don lladdcn. Irom the  bridge ol the Sunshine Coast  Power Squadron announces���  EVERYONE IS INVITED TO  OUR NEXT MEETING.There  is no ulterior motive! He just  wants ALL boaters in ihe area  lo share our good fortune.  On Friday. Match 21 al 7:30  p.m. at the Welcome Beach  Community Hall he has  coaxed John Newton, skipper  of the Pachena to give us a  presentation on the FASTNET  DISASTER.  The Fastnet race for the  Admiral's Cup involved over  300 sailing craft with 19  competing countries having  three entries each. The race,  since it was first run in 1957, is  on a return course from Land's  End in England to Ireland and  back (if you can do it). With  John Newton's involvement  with Force 10 gales and  gigantic seas, the presentation  promises to be entertaining and  educational.  Until I took my original  Power Squadron training  course, the only major water  disaster that had entered my  life was when a character in my  Army unit in England dropped  a paper bag of water down a  three-storey stairwell and I  unfortunately was in his bomb-  sight range. There's quite a  difference between having a  couple of quarts of water  coming out of a showerhead to  having it contained in a bag to  land on your noggin. You'll  hear all about uncontrollable  water forces from our guest  speaker.  The best news about this  eventful evening is that the  price of admission is only 10c  more than what I paid for a cup  of coffee in the Gibsons Mall  the other morning. Yes, Sir,  and Ms.���50c each, and that  includes coffee. Treat yourselves to an evening of listening  to John Newton who flew our  flag on the "Pachena" as one of  Canada's contenders for the  Admiral's Cup. See you all on  deck.  Environment  More than half of Canada's  good farmland is located  within a 160 km radius of the  country's 23 largest cities. It's a  vital part of our environment.  The Priwall was a 350 foot four-masted bark. She  rounded The Horn in five days and 14 hours, losing 11  sails in the process.  fllHIOUHCEIHEHT  NOTARY PUBLIC  JOHN B.

Vince Bracewell of the Sechelt Marsh Society attended  and here are his impressions.  It was the first time such a  large gathering of specialists  and laymen had come together  to exchange ideas, in fact  people who showed up at the  last minute had to be turned  away. A total of 39 speakers  presented their cases. It was  pointed out that B.C. had by  far the majority of species and  numbers of flora and fauna in  Canada and it should be  protected. The greatest dangers  come from exploration and  urbanisation. The exploration  does not have to be in B.C.  Work in the far north can affect  this province, as, in the case on  mammals, many of them migrate to or through here. One  species of bird which could  come under the gun (not  literally I hope) from urban  development is the western  grebe. In the winter time it lives  in our coastal waters, returning  to the prairies to breed in the  summer. According to Vince,  thousands of them can be seen  flying through passes in the  Rockies on ther migration  routes. Prairie flatlands losing  the battle against residential  encroachment, could spell the  end for many of their breeding  grounds.  The organization plans to  hold a second seminar in about  a year's time. As Vince said, "A  meeting of this nature would  have been laughed at ten years  ago." Perhaps people will wake  up before it is too late. I still  believe that humans are good  guys and meetings like this add  some credance to it.  Bird houses  One of the advantages to  writing a column is that you  can give your friends a plug  now and then, so here's one.  Anyone who has tried,  knows how hard it is to rent a  place up here in the summer  time. So if you want to sponsor  a refugee from the balmy south  this summer, how about having  a bird house in your garden.  As I said this is a plug. I was  bribed by Steve Carroll who  presented me with his latest  creation. I wouldn't usually do  this, but I was impressed by the  sturdy construction. He builds  them out of cedar. The one I  have will probably last longer  than I will. Apart from the  heavy construction, they are  your standard wee houses with  the entrance hole and the  outside perch. They come in  different designs, and he's  selling them for about Ave  dollars each, so they are not  only strong, but they are cheap.  Steve lives in Porpoise Bay. If  you want one, call him at 885-  2898.  SPCA  I just received the annual  report from the local SPCA.  They look in pretty good shape.  The bank balance is on the  correct side of the ledger and  they have been busy.  In 1979 they found homes for  37 kittens, 14 pups and 22 adult  dogs. They carried out 22  inspections, one of them resulting in a conviction. The  spay clinic was also a going  concern. On the nasty, but  essential side, they putdown 21  dogs and 243 cats. During the  year they answered 1600 calls.  If you have an animal in need  of a new home, or if you are  looking for a pet, call Donna  McCourt at 886-7839  C.O.R.E.  If you are planning on  hunting this year and are going  for your first license, remember  that you have to pass the  Hunter's Training Program.  The fee for the course is $20.  It begins on March 20 at the  Gibsons Wildlife Club. From  what I hear, it will be a bit later  at the Rod and Gun Club.  For information, call George  Ruggles at 886-7703. If there is  no answer there, call Andy  Anderson at 886-2202.  Odds 'n ends  Looking at the Wildlife  Newsletter, 1 see that John  Hind-Smith had the same  impression of the Lei Lake  meeting as I did. While there is  a   need   for  the   testing  of  chemicals, there is also a need  lo do it in a safe area.  Bald eagles are particularly  plentiful right now. I guess they  are moving back from Squamish and other good salmon  areas. I was having a coffee  with a friend last week and he  described how, when he was  out in his canoe in Pender, he  came across an eagle trying to  pick up a ling cod. The fish was  dead, a salmon fisherman had  caught it and thrown it back.  The eagle wasn't strong enough  to lift it but was trying  valiantly. My nameless friend  got himself a free supper by  facing the bird down. It was a  lucky and plucky find for him,  but 1 think that he should have  cut off a chunk for the bird.  That's all, so if you want to  contact me, my numbers are  886-2622/886-7817 and 886-  9151, ta.  Coast News, March 18,1980  13.  Fire hazards  There have been two serious  fires in the past two weeks.  On Sunday, March 9th, a  house fire at Madeira Park  took the life of a 16-year old,  Natalie Tyrell of Sechelt.  On Friday, March 7th, 18-  year old Kenneth Matthew  Spenst suffered second and  third degree burns to 66% of his  body. While syphoning gas  from his vehicle at his parents'  home off Redrooffs Road, he lit  his lighter and set the fuel on  fire. Prompt action by his  friend and a neighbour managed to extinguish the flames.  He is presently in the burn unit  at Vancouver General Hospital.

Pender provides a little girl's roller skates  Staff and students faced each  other on the gym floor to play a  game of indoor soccer last  Friday. The results were that  Ms. Nomura resolved never to  volunteer as a target for target  practice and the students  trounced the teachers, 4-0. The  defeat was announced, by a  teacher, as being "close",  following recommencement of  classes.  Senior Girls' Rugby is starting up, as well as Soccer. The  Senior Boys' basketball team  finished ninth out of sixteen  teams in the B.C. Single "A"  Provincial Tournament last  week. The players were: Geoff  Butcher, Gordon Clayton,  Grant Gill, Jamie Gill, Robbie  Jonas, Gary Knowles, Kevin  Partridge, Mike Partridge, and  l)j Maryanne West  Once upon a time there wasa  little girl named Kim who  wanted a pair of roller skates.  The new Community School  on Bowcn Island had beautiful  smooth blacktop beside it and  roller skates not marbles were  the "in" tiling this spring.  Her older sister had been  given roller skates for Christmas so you will undcrstandjust  how important a matter it was.  Her parents knew how she  felt, standing on the sidelines  watching the other kids zoom  and turn and crashland and  Father told Mother that, of  course, he'd get Kim a pairtoo.  He scouted the stores in  North Vancouver and West  Vancouver, even went over to  Vancouver.   Everyone   had  Carl  Continued Irom Page IJcven.  of tins to decide we had had  enough of ''Sucker Town,  U.S.A.'!

Last Thursday. Father, who  is the School Trustee for Bowen  Island came over to the Sunshine Coast for a Hoard  meeting at Madeira Park.  Driving past the General  Store in that community, obligingly open until 8:00 p.m., the  name conjured up a memory of  those general stores and trading posts now only seen in  places like Fort Langley or  Fort Steele, with sacks of sugar,  or nuts or beans, collars neatly  rolled, barrels of apples, and a  huge wheel of orange cheese on  the   counter;   with   lanterns,  pails, scrub brushes and  boards, everything you could  possible need except the kitchen sink hanging from the  rafters. Maybe, just maybe,  there might be a pair of  children's roller skates in  Madeira Park.  As there were a few minutes  until meeting time, he turned  around and went in to the store.  Now Madeira Park General  Store isn't really anything like  those stores of so long ago,  grocery staples and easy to  prepare foods, gaily pre-packaged are neatly arranged on  shelves, only fishing rods and  nets hang from the ceiling,  though they do seem to stock  Canfor awards employees  Vancouver���Gibsons residents and employees at Howe  Sound Pulp, Cliff Mahlman,  Murrey Crosby, Lome Gregory and Ken Swallow, were  among 39 people honoured at  the Sixteenth Annual 25 Years  Service Awards Banquet held  at the Hotel Vancouver on  Saturday, February 23, by  Canadian Forest Products Ltd.  and its affiliated companies.  The banquet, held for long  service employees of the Canfor Group of Companies, was  attended by 736 people.  Vice-chairman L.L.G. Bent-  ley presented each of the new  members with a gold service  recognition pin, hard hat  medallion and a choice of  engraved gifts ranging from a  watch to a camera.  The Canfor 25 Year Club  roster now stands at 889  members. The Canfor Group  has a total of 5,200 employees  engaged in fully integrated  wood harvesting and processing operations.  Canfor divisions represented  in the club are: Eburne Saw  Mills, Plywood and Hardwood, Mainland Logging,  Englewood Logging, Stave  Lake Cedar, Huntting-Merritt,  Howe Sound Pulp, Building  Materials, Head Office, Chet-  wynd, Pulp Sales and Wood  Products Sales and Transportation. Also represented in the  club is North Canadian Forest  Industries Limited, which is an  affiliated company located in  Grande Prairie, Alberta.  everything from marbles to  meat and plants to pins,  everything, that is,except roller  skates.  Disappointed, Brian Hodgins, stopped to mention what  he had been looking for on the  way out. Now in all good fairy  stories the storekeeper should  have been an ogre or ancient  crone who imposed an impossible task on the father before  he could have his desired  present for his daughter, but  the clerk was young and blonde  and beautiful and, yes, she felt  sure they still had one set of  skates left.  And there they were, hiding  quietly in their box at the back  of a shelf of plastic toys.  The happy ending to the  story you can fill in for  yourself, the father coming in  to a starry-eyed daughter and  Kim, up at daybreak, eager to  go down to the school to try out  her skates regardless ofthe cold  March weather.  And, take a look at yourself  Vancouver,   you   may   have  Dennis Turenne. Their first  game, which they won, was  against the #2 team on Vancouver Island, St. Michael's.  The second game was played  against the top team, Hope.  Our team stayed with them in  the first half, but Hope was  stronger in the second half, and  we lost. We lost our third game  to Aldergrove, who finished  fourth in the tournament. We  had a fast and scrappy team,  who played well but couldn't  quite get enough baskets. They  have played better teams and  won but coach Roger Douglas  is very proud of the school's  showing. Even with three  injured players, we placed  ninth out of sixteen teams, who  represented ninety-five teams  of all B.C. Hope placed first,  Alpha second, and Sutherland  third. Congratulations, team!  The Yearbook Committee's  publications deadline is only a  month away now. Baby pictures and candids are still in  demand, but layouts of the  various grades are coming  together well. Advertising is  still being sought to finance the  annual and when all possible  advertising has been solicited,  pre-sales will begin.  The grads agreed on the  agenda for the big weekend at a  noon hour meeting on Thursday. The prospect of the grad  being a success looks good, as  forty or so grade twelves  showed a willingness to make it  work by attending and contributing. A few minor details still  require decisions, but these will  soon be determined. In the  meantinmc, though, the grade  twelves will be putting on a  carwash at Sechelt Elementary  School on March 22.

On Wednesday, March 12,  the senior students at Elphie  spent the first half of the day  hearing presentations from the  different vocational institutes  around B.C. These included  UBC, SFU, Capilano College,  UVic, and Pacific Vocational  Institute. This was very interesting for most and it helped in  showing what choice of college  would be best for what occupation the student wished to take  up.  On March 12, the Elphinstone concert and stage band  went to Sechelt Elementary  School. A variety of music was  played by both concert and  stage bands to an appreciative  audience.  On March 19, we will be  having a Careers Day. People  from different occupations are  coming to talk to the grade 11 's  and I2's about their careers���  what they are like and what  courses they had to go through  to get where they are now. It  should be a very good learning  experience.  A meeting of the Joint  Office Committee for the  Village of Sechelt and the  Regional Board learned that  the proposed site at the sewage  treatment plant is suitable for  the construction ofthe required  building.  A soils test report made on  behalf of Golder Associates for  Dayton and Knight finds that  the suggested site is the best site  for a building on the property  and that there is ample room  for a building 40'x80', including  parking.  Lifeguard Course  There are still openings for  the National Lifeguard Course  to be held at the Gibsons  Swimming Pool on March 31.  The course will be held  between March 31 and April  14. It will be five days of  instruction, eight hours per  day.  At the present time, a person  can acquire a position as a  lifeguard with the Bronze Cross  Certificate, but starting next  year, completion of this course  will be a requirement.

HENSCH  District Manager On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  Guess Where  by Dee Cee  Looking back on it now,  perhaps I made a mistake when  I threw that rock into the  crusher along with many  others. What is left of it now is  in all probability under successive layers of blacktop on one  of the busy roads in the St.  George area of Ontario, but I  could certainly have used it on  quite a few occasions following  my bouncing it off the head of  that half-witted character we  had christened "The Ape".  Wc, that is Jim Ryan and I,  could hardly wait till Saturdays  arrived when all work ceased at  noon and we were now free for  a whole day and a half before  that bloody machine started its  crunching on Monday morning. One would have thought  that after a whole week of back  breaking labour we would have  been glad of the rest but, on the  contrary, being young and full  of piss and vinegar, we hurriedly showered, grabbed a bite at  the cookshack and were off to  the small town of St. George  which was about four miles  from the site. Although Jim  was only a year or two older  than myself, strangely enough  he didn't seem to be too  interested in girls, his main  concern appeared to be in  obtaining a bottle of something  or other, usually from a  bootlegger, and rapidly drinking himself into a state of  oblivion whereas my quest, and  what a futile one it was, was to  try and find a girl or woman  who was willing to participate  in the "hanky panky" that I had  in mind.  It was soon apparent that the  girls, mostly farmers' daughters and others whose parents  owned or operated small  businesses in St. George, had  either been warned to stay  away from the roughnecks who  worked on road gangs or  construction jobs in the area, or  it could have been they had  steady boyfriends long before  we arrived. Whatever the  reason, it was an exercise in  futility trying to "make out"  with them and'invariably we  ended up in the early hours of  Sunday morning back at the  camp, Jim either half drunk or  completely blotto and I frustrated and with my dreams and  longings still unfulfilled.  There were other puzzling  factors that I just couldn't  understand either and one of  them was the fact that whenever I donned my suit of plus  fours I inevitably got into a  fight. I think I mentioned in an  earlier article that the sight of  it, coupled with my English  accent, had the same effect on  these Canadian youths as a  matador waving his crimson  cape in front of a bull. It didn't  seem to matter what one wore,  no matter how flamboyant. It  could   have   been   a   fringed  ROMAN CATHOLIC  SERVICES  Rev.

Anything  appeared to be acceptable but  plus fours were definitely out!  As dense and stubborn as I was,  I eventually had to discontinue  wearing it on Saturday nights  and, reluctantly, I came to the  conclusion that my contemporaries in St. George were a  bunch of hicks and more to be  pitied than condemned.  The summer wore on and  both Jim and I were increasingly getting more restless.  Unlike our workmates, the  Polacks, who stayed in camp  over the weekends, playing  cards, patching and mending  their clothes and, by so doing,  husbanding the money they  received for their hard work,  the Irishman and I, although  not actually being prodigal  with our earnings, hadn't the  foresight they had and, between my skirt chasing and his  love for John Barleycorn, it  soon became evident that we  could go on working at this  type of labour until we were  octogenarians without ever  becoming rich.  Unlike my former friend  Arthur, the remittance man,  Jim Ryan was rather a quiet  individual, especially for an  Irishman. He had been in  Canada for almost three years  and, being adventurous like  myself, had knocked around  quite a bit and was experienced  enough to realize that this road  building was only seasonal and  would come to a sudden halt as  soon as the nights became  frosty and the snow flurries  started. So seeing it was not the  month of September and in a  few days it would be my  nineteenth birthday, he proposed that we quit the job at the  end of the week, leave St.  George with its hicks and  unsullied virgins and look for  something more permanent  and exciting than heaving rocks  into a crusher. It didn't take  much persuasion for me to  agree as I wasftd upwithittoo.  So we informed Pedersen, the  Dane, we were leaving at the  end of the week. Surprisingly  he urged us to stay on for a few  more weeks, told us both we  were very good workers and he  hated to see us go, but we were  adamant and come Saturday  noon we were paid of in cash  and we were on our way!  It was Jim's idea we go into  Brantford first, have a look  around and then proceed to  Hamilton, Ontario where, so  he assured me, there was quite a  lot of heavy industry, including  steel works. If we'failed to find  a job in that city we could next  try Toronto and, all else failing,  hit Montreal before the port  froze up and there was still  shipping in the St. Lawrence  CLAD TIDINGS'  TABERNACLE  Gower Point Road  Phone 886-2660  Sunday School - 9:45 a.m.  Worship Service - 11:00 a.m.  Evening Fellowship 6 p.m.  Bible Sludy - Wed. 7:.TO p.m.  Pastor Nancy Dykes  seaway.  At the mention of Montreal I  am sure my eyes must have lit  up as 1 was just dying to get  back there and to hell with  Ontario and its frigid females! I  thought of Madame Lafleur  and her nieces and wondered if  Yvonne was still there. I  mentioned all this to Jim but  agreed that there was no harm  in stopping off at the places he  had suggested, after all work  was work and Montreal could  wait till we had made a larger  stake and had more money to  squander on our indulgences.  We didn't spend very long in  Brantford as, although it was  by far a larger town than.St.  George, the opportunities for  wine, women and song were as  equally unpromising, so that  night wc took the train into  Hamilton, it was only a short  distance of a little over 20 miles  and Jim slept all the way but I  still remember the beautiful  sight as wc came over the  escarpment and the city with its  thousands of lights lay like a  glittering jewel in the valley  below.  I really cannot say what I  expected to find when we  arrived there, I only knew I was  elated to be free of the stone  quarry and not to have to  respond to the Monday morning whistle signifying another  long week of gruelling toil.  That I was to receive my first  lesson in the manner in which  an unsuspecting, somewhat  naive young Limey could be  relieved of his money and other  valuables was still in the offing  and, perhaps, it was as well  that I didn't know. It was a  lesson that sooner or later had  to be learned so I guess  Hamilton was as good a place  as any for it to happen  Coast News, March 18,1980  17.  885  Swanson's 885.5333  L & H Swanson Ltd.

ZONING AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT  The following article has been prepared with the encouragement of and  help of a number of professional Real Estate salespeople and it is  presented here in our first expanded edition. A reading of this article by  those considering the purchase of property in this area will give  prospective purchasers an overview of the various zoning regulations  for the Villages of Sechelt and Gibsons, and for the Regional Board  which regulates all property (except Crown and Lease Land) outside  the boundaries of the Villages.  All three local governments have zoning regulations to control the use of land  and buildings, as well as their size and siting, and to a greater or lesser extent  regulate off-street parking. Broadly speaking, zoning is designed by a governing  body to ensure the health, safety, and convenience of the public. Another  objective is to prevent overcrowding and to provide for the needs and  necessities of town or country life.  The aspect which is of particular interest to property owners is the  preservation of property value.  A council or regional board may regulate the subdivision of land by setting out  the minimum areas, shapes and dimensions of parcels, and decreeing standards  for roads, drainage, water and sewage within the subdivision. In addition the  suitablility of a proposed plan of subdivision to the topography of the ground is  considered.  THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS INVOLVEMENT  The provincial Ministry of Highways has published a pamphlet with the  intriguing title What Happened To My Subdivision Application?. The  Highways Department deals with all subdivision plans in a municipality that  deal with land adjoining any controlled access highway and, of course,  subdivision in unorganized territory. Highways is only interested in road right-  of-ways and access as far as subdivision goes.  Please turn to Page Two.  /    /.

Another provincial office thai is very concerned with new lots is Public  Health. Anyone considering purchasing a parcel of land on Ihe Sunshine Coast  where no municipal or approved subdivision sewage system is operating  should take care to make his oiler subject to the parcel being approved for a  septic tank and drainage field. Public Health offices provide information and  instructions for percolation tesls-an inlitial step in getting septic disposal  approval.  TYPES OF ZONING  Zoning sets out areas restricted to residential housing, multiple dwelling  housing, commercial, industrial, public assembly (schools, churches etc.), park  and other categories that seem to be required in a particular municipality. For  example, Gibsons, unlike Sechelt municipality, has a marine zone to cover  marine businesses and to control harbour dredging. A municipality may have a  zoning quite unique in the general region; Gibsons' Comprehensive  Development Zone (CDA) was used to prevent any building at all while future  developments were pondered. Much of the property in this zone, chiefly the  marine area, has been re-zoned in the past two years touseablecategories.  Residential (R) zones differ in minimum size of lot and house allowed and will  indicate where duplexes may be built. In Gibsons this last zone is called (R3) and  governs such areas as Creekside subdivision off North Road for example. Only  in the Regional District may two residences be built on any single parcel of (R2)  and (R3) zones and then with certain restriction in ownership. Single wide  trailers, generally defined as Mobile (moved to site on their own wheels) and  under 15 feet wide, have had a hard time being recognized as residences outside  of mobile parks. The Regional District permits this type of trailer on (R2) and  (R3) on certain conditions. Gibsons has only recently allowed single wide  trailers on individual lots outside of mobile parks, and these are found in  Creekside subdivision. Since zoning regulations cover areas already built up at  the time the regulations are enacted, many buildings are found to be nonconforming in use. An area with a corner store may have been zoned residential  and the store is a non-conforming use in the zone.  Under Section 705 of the Municipal Act such uses are allowed to continue  unless the non-conforming use is discontinued for 30 days.  REGULATING SUBDIVISION AND ZONING  The Municipal Amendment Act, 1977, introduced a means to allow councils  to control subdivision development to a greater degree than previously. A  council may issue development permits that regulate the dimensions and siting  of buildings, off-street parking, and that require landscaping or screening, and  the paving of roads and parking areas. The development may also require  construction in accordance with specifications, play and recreation areas,  preservation of watercourses, and limitations on the size, number and type of  signs. It may also regulate the exterior finish of commercial and apartment  buildings. This section of. the Act gives a council control of a subdivision  development replacing the land use contract, repealed in 1977. This was never  popular and seldom used because the contract had to be registered as a  restrictive covenant on the land. In granting a development permit council may  not vary the densities nor uses prescribed by the applicable zoning by-law. As  any reader of the Sunshine Coast News will have noted, zonings are frequently  being amended after public hearings to accommodate changing uses of the  land. Sometimes, new zonings are introduced. Gibsons proposes, for example,  to institute a new Commercial zone (C4), to allow some businesses, such as  restaurants, on Marine Drive to operate without off-street parking  requirements.In the Regional District where land use varies from small lot to  farm zoning, minimum lot sizes are specifically set out. The district's zoning  map will designate an area as residential, rural, agriculture and rural, or country  and also designate what the minimum parcel size is for that particular area. A  hypothetical designation might be A2B���rural 2 zone where the minimum  parcel size is 10 acres. The zoning map is a very important part of the printed  zoning regulations, and should always be studied along with the written parts.  On the zoning maps of the Regional District, the letters ALR appear in certain  areas and denote Agricultural Land Reserve which prohibits other than farm  use of parcels in the designated area. The ALR is provincially controlled by a  commission.  Section 713A ol the municipal act empowers an approving officer to permit a  separate residence on a parcel for the owner's father, mother, inlaws, or  grandchild.  There are several restrictions on this particular kind of subdivision.  THE BOARD OF VARIANCE  No properly owner need take the decisions of a council or one of its officers  as the final word. Sections 708 and 709 of the Municipal Act provide for appeal  to a three person Board of Variance. For example, a property owner wishes to  build a pool closer to his lol line than zoning allows yet it is the only spot on his  lot, he maintains, that he has to build il. He appeals to the Board of Variance and  presents his case Neighbours who may be affected can present their opposition  lo or support (or the case. The Board only deals with the interpretation of any  official zoning bylaws or with cases of hardships caused by the enforcement  of a bylaw. An example of an appeal to the Board might arise where an  inspector has denied permission to rebuild a nonconforming use building which  has been destroyed by fire. The Board will determine whether or not the  inspector's ruling is justified. An appeal can be made against a decision of the  Board of Variance and can be taken to County Court.  The foregoing overview does not cover such matters as judgements,  easements and restrictive covenants which can further limit land use.  Prospective purchasers can avoid possible complications by dealing only with  licensed Real Estate salespeople who are thoroughly trjincd (and examined) in  all aspects of property sale and purchase and are bound by a rigorously  enforced government regulated code of ethics.
