Douglas votes no  Chatelech expansion approved  by Maryanne West  "Arc you ready for thc question?" and although Trustees in  speaking m the motion had made iheir intent clear, the large  audience, mainly concerned parents Irom the Sechell area, waited  in tense silence for the show of hands which would confirm their  hopes.  I he motion before the Hoard, presented by Trustee Clayton  read " I hat the Hoard of School Trustees of School District No. 46  take immediate steps to provide accommodation and services  needed to enroll Grade 11 students at Chatelech Junior Secondary  September I IXI, Grade 12 students by September 1982, and that  permission he obtained to change thc status of the school  accordingly to Chatelech Secondary"  An amendment proposed by frustec Douglas and seconded by  trustee Puchalski, "Students living in Robert's Creek Elementary  School boundary area presently attending Chatelech Junior  Secondary school in Grades X. 9 and III be allowed the choice of  attending either Chatelech ur Elphinstone Secondary schools  beginning September 1981.

Trustees voted 6 - I in favour ofthe motion to hearty applause  Irom the audience.  In registering a "no" vole Chairman Douglas spoke of his  concern for the financial costs of the change, agreeing with the  administration that the move is premature.

Election day is November 15.  |   Joyce Edney - in memoriam   |  hi John Burnside  Death brought a merciful end lasl week lo the suffering of Mrs.  Joyce Edney. She was a lew weeks short of her fifty-ninth  birthday. Her life, though prematurely, abbreviated, was filled  with the love ol her lamily and the many friends she served  cheerfully over Ihe past ten vears in ihe family business.  Joyce was bom in I ondon. I ngland, in 1921. She became ill  and was informed lhal ii was a terminal illness sis months to the  day belore she died  Joyce met hei husband Hill while he was serving overseas  iliuing ihe Second World War. Ihcv were married in 1942 and  IWO children. Elizabeth and Gillian, were born there belore she  was evacuated in 1945,  In Canada, the lamily took up residence in Outlook, Sask..  where Bill was the managei ol a co-operative. Iheir third child.  Keith, was born in Outlook. It was a period ol post-war scarcities  and Ihe English war bride washed clothes for her family on a  scrubbourd and hung them oul to dry in below zero prairie  winters. A neighbour. Mr. Eraser off raser Hardware in Outlook,  felt thc suffering ofthe young immigrant lady keenly and sold her  thc first washing machine lo arrive in his store after Ihe war.  Hill Edney says that his wile's life was often hard, bul good. "Il  wasn'i until 1948 that she was able to have a sew ing machine with  which she made every stitch of clothing for herself and her  family."  1 he second son. Graham, was born in 19511 which Bill Edney  remembers as 'the first vear wc could keep ojr milk and  perishables in a refrigerator', Prim lo that the ice box was in  common use.  I he fillies were good lo the Edncys until January 1954. when it  was discovered that ten-year Old Gillian had a fatal brain tumour.  I or ten months before her death the little Gillian was blind and  during this period the Edncys developed an enduring appreciation  First on Coast  Roberts Creek Plan in place  bv John Moore  of the work of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  Gillian died later that vear. The last child. Julia Dawn, was born in  July. 1955.  Ihe immediate post-war period was the baby boom era wilh  returning service people establishing homes, families and careers  and ihere were many neighbourly times enjoyed in Saskatoon,  husband Bill's original home.  Ihe prairies, however, were never an easy place loi Ihe young  woman from London and when the family finally moved lo B.C.  her comment was: "Why hasn't somebody told me aboul Ihis  place before?" I he Edncys purchased a home in Coquitlam which  they kepi until Ihey moved lo Gibsons in 197(1.  Between 196(1 and 1965, however, thc family moved in Salmon  Ann where Bill was General Managei ofthe Salmon Ann Co-op.  a large inulli-dcparlincnl store In Salmon Arm the lamily lived  on three-quarters of an acre where Joyce was able to indulge in her  special feeling lor animals. She raised a call and an Arabian mare  which produced iwo fouls. While feeding ihe marc she lell and  broke her foot which injury resulted in the phlebitis which was to  plague her until hei death.  "She was ever trying to improve her know ledge and her skills."  remembers Bill. "She took Adult High School courses and was  active in Ihe Cub movement as a Cub Leader."  Until her final illness Joyce Edney was a very healthy and hardy  individual and hei moral code was ol ihe highest. Bill Edney  remembers her as the type of individual who would never leave  any lask uncompleted that was within her power lo complete  "One of the saddest aspects ol this characteristic was her  inability lo complete some knuting projects, Hei knitting was by  her bedside in hospital at ihe end until hei co-ordination tailed  hei."  Joyce was a gracious and a cheerful presence who will he missed  bv all who knew her.  Ihe firsl ol Ihe Sunshine Coast's community plans is now  officially in place. Regional board directors al last I hursdav  evening's meeting reconsidered and voied unanimously lo finally  adopt Ihe plan, which had been relumed from Victoria wilh Ihe  approval ol lite Minisiiy ol Municipal \ffairsearlier in ihe week.  Aiea 1) Director llany Almond told the Coast News that credit  for Ihe finished plan goes not only to the members ol Ihe Advisory  Planning committee who put in "more than Iwo years of very hard  work" on the plan, bul to all the residents nl Roberts Creek "who  devoted so much thought and effort" lo provide generous public  input to aid the committee and the Planners in their work.  Almond was ebullient al ihe approval of ihe Ministry, which set  thc official seal on two items in the plan thai had been particularly  controversial.  The first was the question of the road allowance on Beach  Avenue. Almond and Ihe Roberts Creek Advisory Planning  Commission had been advised by thc regional Planners that the  Highways Department would in all probability object lo the  plan's stipulation that the road allowance be maintained al thc  presenl 66 feel. However, thai stipulation remains intact.  I he Roberts Creek residents staled objection lo the location ol  Canadian Propane Ltd. storage tanks at the mouth of Robert  Creek itself, and their request lhal ihe company's lease not be  renewed, which was included in ihe plan, also passed without  comment from thc Minisiiy.  1 he inclusion of Ihe latter item may well have profound  ramifications should the Ministry's own recently-proposed new  Planning Act become law in ils presenl form nexl year. The  Seltlemenl Plan, called an "Official Plan" under ihe new Ael.  would, in effect, become a by-law with which the company would  have lo comply within a year. Canadian Propane still has  approximately three years io go before ils lease on the site comes  up for renewal.  Opposition to the location ofthe lanks is healing up again, (sec  Letter to the Editor on Page 3 land petitions requesting immediate  removal of ihe lanks are already posicil in the Roberts Creek  Posi Office and other prominent locations. Once circulated,  copies of the petition will he sen! lo Ihe Ministry ol ihe  Environment and ihe Minisiiy ol Municipal Affairs.  One telegram containing ihe same request and signed by several  Roberts Creek residents was dispatched Friday morning to  Environment Minister Stephen Rogers. A group ol residents is  also in the process ol arranging the showing of a film entitled  Gibsons marina  wins approval  The Gibsons marina project has won approval lor inclusion in  19X1-X2 budget estimates ol thc federal government.  In a letter lo council. Warren Parkinson, regional director ol  the Small Craft Harbours Branch, says his branch is satisfied ihe  municipal marina is an acceptable and desirable project lor Ihe  Marina Assistance Program.  He says il is his intention lo suhmil the project wilh the list for  Ihe I9XI-X2 budget estimates, bin adds Ihe qualification thai  whether or not thc project is included inanapproved program will  depend on thc level of funding provided.  I he letter asks if the village will be ina position lo commit ihe  necessary funds to its share ol the project,  Council's finance chairman Larry Trainor says that matter will  be deall wilh hy council at ils nexl meeting.  I he project could nol be included in ihis year's federal estimates  since funding tor recreational projects is limited and a priority has  been given lo commercial fishing harbour facilities in B.C.  I he v illage has already spent about $200,000 to acquire upland  properly in Ihe bay area for the project and will likely spend  another S120,000 lo acquire remaining lands.  Council wants about 59(111.(1(10 hum Ihe Canadian government  to pay for constructing a breakwater, dredging and foreshore  preparation. I olal cost of the entire project will he close lo S2-  Million.  "BI EVE" i Boiling Liquid and Expanding Vapour Explosion) in  thc Creek in thc near future,  I he possibility of acquiring ihe land al Ihe mouth ol Roberts  Creek loi a park also came under discussion while Ihe boaid was  in a eonimillee-ol-lhe-wholc. Director Almond pointed oul lhat  Ihe land is being offered lor sale and requested thai Ihe Regional  Planners contact Ihe owners ol the properly with a view lo  obtaining an option or interim agreement until Ihe details can be  worked oul.  Almond pointed oul lhal Ihere are a number ol Clown lols on  Crowe Road given Io the SCRD hy the Provincial government,  Buyers have expressed an interest in these lots and Almond  requested lhal ihe provincial govcrnmeni he contacted  concerning a "land swap" hy which ihe sale ol these lots could  finance the buying ol ihe lands at the Creek mouth.  Sechelt not  enthusiastic  by Kirk Brown  The scenario ol creaiinga greater metropolis ol Sechelt through  amalgamation wilh Area C gol little, if any, support from village  residents al a public meeling ihis week.  A suggestion that a straw vote be taken to indicate some  consensus of opinion of the amalgamation hypothesis was nol  acted upon at the close of the meeling.  More than 35 people heard the report of Alderman Charles Lee  and debated its propositions for more than two hours. I( was the  same report presented by l.ee. also director for Area C on the  SCRD board, at meetings in Selma Park and Wilson Creek earlier  ihis month.  Mayor Hud Koch says the Sechell council position is thai there  is no consensus ol opinion at ihe moment and the purpose of Ihe  meeling was to gather a point ol view. He says. "No decision has  been made, of any kind. This is a brand new game."  The Mayor say s the purpose of the meeting was for information  only and that "we are here to Imd oul whal ihe people feci."  Ihe Mayor also brought oul the possibility ol some form of  amalgamation wilh all or part of Area B of ihe SCRD.  Hul SCRD board director loi Area H. Peggy Conner, told the  meeting a survey she conducted with her constituents indicated  that residents did not wanl lo amalgamate with the village.  ON THE INSIDE...

Production Department:  Sonia Trudel  Nancy Conway  Don Levan  r  An ounce of prevention  The recent propane explosion in Spain  and the approval of the Roberts Creek  Settlement Plan by Victoria which,  among other things, calls for the removal  of the propane tanks from the mouth  of Roberts Creek have combined to  re-activate an issue which is never far  from thc surface of the consciousness  of Roberts Creek.  Provincial Emergency Program Coordinator Art McPhee has asserted  recently that the propane tanks are in the  best place possible for them. Creek  residents, however, seem largely unconvinced by McPhee.  hi more ways than one it is a potentially  volatile situation. Cool heads will have  io prevail if the situation is to be amicably  resolved. Nor should the propane tanks  at Roberts Creek be the only concern of  safety minded citizens.  There still arc throughout the Sunshine  Coast gasoline storage tanks in much too  close proximity to settled areas. In  Hopkins thc Esso tanks sit between  bolh roads to the ferry. An accident could  cut off both roads to the ferry and possibly incinerate much of Hopkins Landing. In Gibsons the venerabL- Shell tanks  sit right in the downtown core of Gibsons  Harbour area. There are Gulf tanks in  Pender Harbour located less than desirably.  A couple of years ago there was  suggestion made that a tank farm could  and should be brought into being where  all these storage facilities could be maintained far from settled areas with pipe  access to the sea. If memory serves well,  the Sechelt Indian Band offered such a  location. Somehow in the last couple of  years the idea has been allowed to  drop, largely because of a lack of interest  on the part of Gulf and Shell Oil evident-  ly.  It would seem that the construction  of a modern facility for the storage of  volatile materials in a safe location is  still a worthwhile goal. Perhaps the  people of Roberts Creek are reminding  the Sunshine Coast again of a worthy  idea which has been allowed to slip into  limbo while our elected representatives  chase butterflies of their own devising  of much less significance. Can we have  forgotten the terrible devastation  wreaked on the Nanaimo waterfront just  a year or two ago? Perhaps we should  all be bending our energies to effect a  timely ounce of prevention.  A great loss  The Coast News, in common with many  of Gibsons' residents, would like to  express our sympathy publicly, as we  have privately, with the Edney family at  this time of their bereavement.  The loss of Joyce  Edney,  wife and  mother of the family and fellow worker,  is an event that no words can assuage.  We who knew Mrs. Edney can only  attempt to express our compassion and  in some small way share their great  loss.  t  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  i��i).  mWm #  FIVE YEARS AGO  With the closure of municipal  nominations Monday, both Mayor  Larry Labonte of Gibsons and Sechelt  Mayor Harold Nelson were re-elected  by acclamation.  Sechelt Teacher's Association president George Matthews indicated  that the STA was still dissatisfied with  Ihe school board's failure to clarify in  writing the criteria for evaluating  teachers. Members of the STA are also  unhappy aboul the lack of access to  personnel files.  TEN YEARS AGO  The sixty-four year old Our Lady of  Lourdes church on the Sechelt Indian  Band lands burned to the ground in the  early hours of last Sunday morning.  The structure was built in 1906 by  about 100 Band members working  continuous shifts to complete the  building in 72 days.  Four weddings in one day kept Rev  Jim Williamson of Gibsons United  Church busy lasl Saturday Three ol  the weddings were at Gibsons United  Church and one at St. John's United  Church. Wilson Creek.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Sechelt School Board passed a  S773.350 referendum to be put before  the public The lunds would be used to  make improvements to all schools in  Ihe district and to construct a school  board office on the present school hall  site  Illegal pickets appeared briefly at the  Sunnycrest Mall and spent three-  quarters ol an hour before the Super-  Valu store After being asked not to  block traffic, the pickets moved onto  the grass and disappeared a short time  later. Super-Valu was engaged in  contract negotiations with the Retail  Clerks Union and pickets are illegal  during such negotiations  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Work to cost up to S38.000 is planned  for   the   Sechelt-Gibsons   Municipal  Airport in Wilson Creek. A winter  works program for the airport has also  been prepared and waits federal and  provincial government approvals.  Members of the 1st Gibsons Scout  Troop paid their third visit of the year to  the Elphinstone Cemetery, where  close to 100 members of old-time local  families lie. The Scouts are endeavouring lo keep the area free of  weeds and brush and otherwise  beautify it.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  More than 200 person attended the  opening of the Port Mellon Community  Centre when Canfor President J.S.  Prentice officially opened the beautiful new building.  The Coast News mourned the  passing of L.S. "Al" Jackson, long-time  resident ol the Sunshine Coast who  had been a major figure in the  establishment of innumerable community services and a frequent and  valued contributor to this paper.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The village of Gibsons is no longer  the smallest in B.C.. according to a  proclamation received by the village  commission which records the amalgamation of the village and District  Lots 686 and 685.  The Sechelt Board of Trade announced lhat it would lead a concerted  fight for the establishment of better  telephone facilities for this area.  Sparked by an editorial in Ihe Coast  News, the Board denounced the  present system and struck a committee  to look into the whole situation and  report back to the board.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  With a comfortable majority as soon  as the first few polls were counted,  Herbert Gargiave, CCF candidate, was  re-elecated lo Ihe Legislative Assembly for this riding.  Gerald McBean has been appointed  general manager of Union Steamships  Ltd.. succeeding Carl Halterman in the  active management of the company.  Wilt'        Jtmi-U   "-'VWidL*.-  Refuge Cove, early 1920's. When, in 1918. Robert Donley of Pender Harbour  acquired a piece of undeveloped property on West Redonda Island, he promptly  established the Donley Trading Company at this landlocked site. The enterprise  stocked groceries, hardware items, and other general merchandise. Thc moorage  float system seen here served as a depot for kerosene, gasoline, and oil, dispensed  from steel drums, and for the shipment of fish packed in ice. Daughter Ida recalls  that fish boxes, each of which had been loaded with two hundred pounds of ice.  sometimes had little left by the time they reached Toba Inlet. Addition of a Post  Office added to the significance of this port of call. Vear after year, travellers caught  by inclement weather on Desolation Sound were cheered by Robert Donley's sign  off the harbour mouth: "Refuge Cove". Captain Charles Strom recollects having  seen this sign as far back as 1925. It is now illuminated by a charted private light.  Photo courtesty Ida Donley Higgs. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >*  George Matthews  The caller was irate, there  was no doubt about that.  "I don't want to read  another word about that man  in the Coast News. In the last  three years he has had enough  coverage for three lifetimes."  The man in question was  Alderman/Director Charles  Lee and I must say that I  sympathized with the caller's  point of view although the  ethics of the job require that  the privilege of editing be  judiciously exercised and ks  long as Lee continues to  occupy a prominent place on  the small stage of our municipal and regional affairs  it is our obligation to report  his doings and sayings, for  there is little doubt that what  he is proposing, if effected,  could change the nature of  local government in a decisive  manner.  It is, unfortunately, rarely  the issues under discussion  that Lee chooses to discuss  in his lengthy polemics to this  newspaper or that. Our experience in the field of municipal politics is confined to  this area but surely there can  be few politicians in the land  who, in the name of public  service, have heaped as much  abuse on fellow politicians and  the local news media as Lee  habitually indulges in. Scarcely a week goes by without  some lofty, rambling harangue from Lee detailing the  cretinous stupuidity of anyone  who happens to have a  differing opinion from his  eminent self.  Now the fact lhat the Coast  'Snooze' as Mr. Lee delights  in calling us, a witticism  originally coined by Jack Pope  of Chatelech in an enjoyable  exchange a couple of years  ago, has been the victim of  Lee's vindictive utterance of  late is not the cause of these  ruminations. We have, since  Lee's arrival on the local  political scene, fallen in and  out of his good graces. A few  months ago he was thanking  us for our community contributions and a few months  before that reviling us. It is a  fact that every local newspaper has been excessively  used and abused by the  cantankerous Mr. Lee.  I came back f rom a holiday  in the Yukon a couple of years  ago to find a classic of contumely gracing, if that is the  word, the Letters to the Editor  page of the Coast News. The  subject of that particular outburst was the man who is at  present Lee's fair-haired boy  in the world of newspapers,  Richard T. Proctor. The  occasion was a dinner for  municipal officials at the Casa  Martinez. As an example of  Lee's   style   of   debate   and  impartiality of targets I offer  these gems. The upper case  usage is Lee's own:  "THE GRATUITOUS  FLEERINGLY INSULTING  REMARKS IN THE PRESS  LAST ISSUE... FROM THE  POISON LOADED PEN OF  DICK PROCTOR MAKE ME  VOMIT FROM NAUSEA AND  DISGUST THAT SUCH A  CREEP IS AMONG US...  THIS POSING, POSTULATING, PRESS PANJANDRUM PROCTOR...  THE PEN TIMES AND  THE COAST NEWS ALSO  HAD, AS IS PREDICTABLE,  'THEIR NUTS IN A WRINGER' AS IT WERE BUT THE  VAST MAJORITY OF THEIR  WRITINGS HAVE BEEN  PLEASANT AND CONSTRUCTIVE."  There's a lot more I could  quote by illustration but my  point is we have had enough  of this type of thing. Lee,  for example, concludes that  particular masterpiece with  a laboriously vulgar Spoonerism on Proctor's name which  says as much as need be  said about the quality of  Lee's political debate.  It is generally agreed by  those who have worked with  him that Charles Lee is a man  of considerable experience  and real managerial skill.  It is his misfortune, and ours,  that he cannot brook any  opinion different from his  own. At the Regional Board he  has twice been infuriated  because the directors on two  separate boards have declined  to vote for him as Chairman.  The result has been unending  attacks of a vile nature on the  character of the two men who  did become Chairman, Ed  Nicholson and David Hunter.  In addition, those directors  who voted against him have  been likewise subjected to  public vilification from the  busy pen of Charles Lee. The  whole concept of Regional  government has met with his  Olympian contempt, mainly,  I am convinced, because  successive boards declined  Lee's leadership.  As far as the principal issue  exercising Lee today, the  amalgamation of Sechelt and  Area C, we are content to  let the people involved - and  this must surely include the  Sechelt Indian Band whose  land separates Sechelt and  Area C - and the elected  public officials decide the  matter. There are voices,  knowledgeable in municipal  finance who do not think the  idea to be the financial  godsend that Lee professes  that it is.  Our hope is that the issue  can be discussed at a level  higher than that of personal  abuse and wholesale insult for  all who do not automatically  agree    with    Charles    Lee.  For our part we would  assure Alderman/Director Lee  that the Coast 'Snooze' is  very much awake. Yawning,  perhaps, in the face of his  continuing outbursts, but  awake and unintimidated.  The American election campaign has run its predictable  course with both Presidential  candidates saying more and  more about less and less  until, during the closing days,  they both have a great deal  to say about nothing at all. As  in other recent Presidential  elections, it has come down  to a titanic struggle between  the Democratic advisors and  statisticians and their G.O.P.  counterparts.  The most fascinating aspect  ofthe campaign thus far is the  amusing possibility that Ronald Reagan may be actually  starring in a movie about  himself. Hollywood has always had problems portraying  the American presidency.  Richard Widmark has come as  close as anyone to a believable  President but he apparently  lost out to Mr. Reagan in the  casting competition because  he held out for a percentage  of the redistribution rights to  the movie. Actually Reagan  was a good choice; he handles  his lines well and, as a "B"  player, he has never been  able to afford to be temperamental.  The major problem Hollywood had in selecting Ronald  Reagan for the role of Presidential aspirant was his  lack of "blue movie" appeal.  He was a shoe-in for the five-  part TV series, initially titled  "Bonzo Goes to the White  House", and he even had an  edge in the pay-TV market,  but when it came to the sex  appeal needed for the porno  market, he lost his slim lead.  It seems Reagan, while tall,  dark and good looking, was a  bit stiff for the X-rated crowd.  Fortunately for Reagan, his  agent got the bright idea and  had some rushes shot of  Ronnie kissing his horse.  The results were immediate.  The filthy flick folks fell in  love with the Governor immediately in the bizarre belief  that anyone who was a potential bestialist couldn't be  all that bad.  That wrapped it up for Mr.  Reagan, and gave him a  definite edge in the campaign.  The only problems remaining  for him, in the early stages of  the campaign at least, were;  who would be his running  mate? (his horse was rejected  at the last minute); and would  Japanese TV pay residuals  on the series?  At this point, if you'll  remember back to July,  Carter was on the ropes. He  needed a gimmick. He pulled  his trump card. Back to the  land. The image began to  emerge; the peanut farmer in  the rose garden wearing  fertilized cowboy boots with a  running mate from the Mid-  West.

Stephen Rogers,  Minister ofthe Environment,  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  The tragic propane explosion in Spain which killed  or maimed in excess of 100  children serves as a reminder  of the need to remove the  dangerous propane tanks in  the heart of Roberts Creek.  These two 25,000 gallon  tanks have been the concern of residents, local fire  department   and   most   par  ticularly the children and  teachers of nearby Roberts'  Creek Elementary School.  The very real potential  hazard of these tanks has to  be seen in terms of their  location. The centre of Roberts  Creek is a focal point for  sun bathers, Roberts Creek  Daze and is the retail centre  as well as the gathering  place for educational and  recreational activities which  centre in the main around the  elementary school, which has  an enrollment of over 200  students.  This potential hazard of  50,000   gallons   of   propane  exploding and burning is a  bomb which can be set off by  human failure, rusty pipes,  terrorism and a host of  seemingly impossible reasons-  until it happens I  Let us save our community.  Roberts Creek does not need  to make world headlines  because of another devastating propane explosion.  Let us have the Immediate  removal of these tanks 1  Sincerely,  June E.

It's pretty  much up for grabs. I always  had this dream of becoming a  dancer - took lessons for  years when I was a kid. My  pop used to call me his little  ballerina. Hell, I'm only  twenty-four. Maybe I can get  back into it - not ballet - I'm a  bit too out of training for that -  but some kind of modern  interpretive stuff. I wouldn't  even mind doing chorus-line  work."  "I think you'd make a great  dancer, Carlorta. You're really  graceful. I always had this  secret ambition to be a writer.  Guess I should have finished  school instead of hitting the  bloody logging-camps."  "You don't have to be a  logger forever, love. Hell,  maybe we should team-up. I  know a place in Mexico called  San Miguel de Allende where  we could live real cheap. It's  sort of an art colony. You can  do your writing; I'll work at  my dancing and we won't  have a worry in the world.  What do you say, sugar?"  "Sure" I say excitedly,  catching her enthusiasm "lt'd  really be great." Then practicality rears its sobering head.  "But, hell, I've got no money  beyond a hundred bucks or so.  I'd have to go back to camp  and make another stake.  You'd never wait around."  "Course I will, honey. I'll  get a job myself and stay in  Vancouver until you come  back."  Even opting for miracles,  I find this damn hard to  believe. Hell, we've only  known each other for a couple  of days and girls like Carlotta  have trouble going lonely for  long, even if they should  wish lo. But it's a nice dream  and I find myself going along  with it against all odds or  logic. We kiss long and  rapturously with the distant  sound of traffic rumbling in  the guts of thc dyspeptic city.  ^j/l  x-  ,M..n.

Oct. 31 & Sat. Nov. 1  Prizes for Best Costumes  on Hallowe'en  Members & Guests Only  =V  P  We mostly hole up in the  room for the next two days,  warding off reality with  whisky; making love; weaving  the myth of our future.  Occasionally, hunger drives  us out briefly to eat but we  invariably return to our  hideaway before long, quite  content with each other's  company. Underneath it all, I  know damn well that I'm  running out of money and  we'll have to make other  arrangements before much  longer. But 1 try not to think  about it. I want our strange  idyll to last forever. In all my  street wanderings, I have  never met a girl remotely  like Carlotta. I am stupidly  falling in love and I can't  help myself.  On the morning of the third  day, we find ourselves both  out of cigarettes. I pull on my  clothes and head down to the  lobby to get some. They're  out of Carlotta's brand and I  have to hit the grocery-store  across the street. When I get  back to the room, Carlotta is  sitting on the edge of the bed,  naked except for her shorty-  coat, talking on the phone.  She gives me an odd look and  motions me not to say anything. I close the door quietly  and sit down. For awhile, she  mostly listens to the voice  on the other end. "Okay.  Okay." she says finally in a  voice of resignation "I'll see  you there in about an hour."  She hangs up the phone and  sits looking at it as though  it has just bitten her. "That  bitch I That meddling old  bitch!"  "Jesus! honey. What's  wrong?"  "Just about everything you  can goddamn imagine,  sweets. You know what that  aunt of mine did? She phoned  Vegas and told Mario I was in  Vancouver. I just called up  there to see if there was any  mail and he answers the  bloody phone. I couldn't  believe it. He flew in last  night and of course, he wants  to see me. That vindictive  old bitch! We don't get along  but I never thought she'd  stoop to this. She's got  about as much family loyalty  as a barracuda!"  "You!re going out to see  him, eh? Why don't you  just lie low till he splits?"  "I thought of that but he  was talking pretty reasonable.  1 guess the dude loves me in  his weird way and I'd really  like to cool things with him.  He's a bit heavier than I let  on. I think he's got Mafia  connections. I don't think he'd  go as far as to put a contract  out on me but you never  know. Anyhow, I think it  would be better if I meet him  and try to put things straight  between us."  Carlotta proceeds to get  dressed. I just sit there  numbly, trying to comprehend  this unexpected turn of  events. What happens now?  She finishes grooming herself  for the street and comes over  to me. "Don't look so sad,  honey. It isn't the end of the  world. I'm only going to have  a talk with him. We'll still  do all those things we planned  but I've got to get Mario off  my back first." We kiss with  a passion that has a sad edge  of desperation to it. "I'll  phone you later, sweets"  she says. "Don't get too  lonely." Then she is gone.  Of course I get lonely and  drunk as hell too. My mind is  such a welter of confused,  conflicting emotions, I want to  blot them all out. I keep the  room for another day but there  are no calls or messages from  Carlotta. Finally, I book out  and score a place more in  line with my vanishing finances. I leave a note with the  desk-clerk and check back a  couple   of   times.   Nothing.  I decide to phone her aunt's  place and find out what has  happened but I don't dare  make the call myself. By  chance, I run across a girl  from my earliest street-days  and manage to con her into  doing it for me. "Some snippy  old broad answered" she  reports. "Said Carlotta's gone  back to the States with her  husband."  So that's it, plain and  simple. A few days later, I'm  back in another logging-camp  with the whole perplexing  interlude behind me. I never  see or hear of Carlotta again.  I never learn whether she  went willingly with Mario or  under duress. I hope it was  the former since I wish her no  hurt. I will never forget her.  She has taught me much in  our brief time together. She  has passed through my life  like a warm, passionate wind;  a free spirit; a foretaste of  tomorrow.

Drawn  for the most part from Canadian examples, these brief  scenes poignantly illustrate  the absurdities inherent in  the   kind   of  situation   that  women   so   frequently   experience.  That the struggle for e-  quality of women is not a  struggle against men is a key  point in this informative film.

What is "The Spike"?  "The Spike" is where news  stories wind up if an editor  decides he doesn't like its  politics. Presumably the expression originally referred to  thc spike on the editor's desk,  but in this tale of the post-  Cold War power politics of  detente, it also takes on the  ominous connotations of the  old military practise of "spiking" or sabotaging the enemy's guns.  In the days of set-piece  battles, when thc enemy was  clearly recognizable by his  different coloured uniform, artillery was spiked, usually by  damaging the breech-block,  when an enemy position was  over-run, in order to prevent  it from being re-used if it  was recaptured.  The basic premise of espionage is that by stealing  strategic secrets you can, in  effect, spike the other guy's  guns before the battle starts.  Espionage has always used  the spreading of rumours,  false information and inflammatory propaganda as  one of its tools, but with the  growing power of the mass  media in the latter half of  this century, the tactics of  "disinformation" have become refined into a science as  delicate as more conventional  clandestine operations.  The Spike follows the career  of a young liberal journalist,  Robert Hockney, who rises  rapidly in his profession  during the late Sixties and  early Seventies heyday of  investigative journalism that  climaxed in the Watergate  revelations and the toppling  of the Nixon administration.  A series of sensational  scoops, mostly involving re  velations of wrong-doing by  the Central Intelligence Agency, catapults Hockney to  minor celebrity status, a  coveted position on the New  York World and a carte  blanche to follow his own inclinations as far as stories are  concerned.  As a result of a long love-  affair with a Hollywood sex-  symbol turned terrorist who  becomes a tragic victim of  what Tom Wolfe called "radical chic", Hockney begins to  retrace the steps that led to  his "success". He discovers,  at every turn, reason to  suspect that his best pieces  were less the result of his own  "digging" than of a carefully  engineered form of "spoonfeeding" by people operating  consciously and unconsciously  under the direction of Directorate A, the "disinformation  bureau" of the Russian KGB.  In the course of re-investigating his own stories, a  humbling enough experience  for a reporter, Hockney gets a  further shock when the results  of his investigations, which  point to the systematic top-  level penetration of the  National Security Council and  the CIA by Soviet "moles"  (double agents) and the use of  the media to discredit politicians and bureaucrats who  take a hard line on detente  and Soviet aggression, get  repeatedly spiked.  The pace picks up toward  the end of the book, with a  high-level Russian defector,  high-speed car and train  chases, assassination attempts and a courtroom  finale before a Congressional  committee. The writing  throughout is competent,  without being scintillating,  but it is a tribute to the  professionalism of both authors that the collaboration  is unrecognizable as such.  Whether or not you agree  with the right-wing, rearmament politics of the  concluding   chapters,   senti-  Book Look  bv Murrie Redman  Perfect small club band  ments that appear to be  gaining ground in the U.S.  of late, if the Presidential  nomination of Ronald Reagan  is any indication, the book  does raise some serious  questions about the nature  of truth and the ethics of  those who claim to report  it.  Freedom of the press  and freedom of speech are  fundamental rights under a  democratic system. What is all  too easily forgotten is that  rights invariably entail obligations. A partial truth, or  truth out of context, can be  as damaging as a lie. Impartial objectivity, the goal of  most reporters is just that; a  goal, an ideal, that can only  be approximated in practise.  At its best The Spike is a  grim reminder that the apparently factual impersonal  reportage that graces the front  page of any newspaper is  produced by human beings;  reporters, editors and publishers, all of whom have  personal ethics and political  beliefs, as well as ambitions,  and who operate under external pressure from advertisers and political figures.  More than a mere "roman a  clef" of high-level political  gossip or a strategic storm-  warning for the Western  world, The Spike is a warning  to readers as well; the often  heard "They wouldn't put it  in the newspaper if it wasn't  true" is a cop-out. A healthy  critical intelligence and a  grain of salt is no more than  you owe yourself. AH for now.  A Civil Mar Courtship edited bv William Walton, Doubledav  1980, SI4.15.  Reading old letters and journals brings the real past right into  now. The letters of Edwin Weller to his friend Nettie Watkins not  only gives an intimate picture of a soldier's life in thc Civil Warof  the United Stes, but also demonstrates the courting mores of a  young swain of the times for his lady.  The couple grew up in the city of Havana, New York. Nettie's  lather n�� ned the drygoods store in which Edwin worked. The two  youngsters enjoyed a friendship that eventually lurned into love.  Edwin's letters, and only his remain, though faithfully written  to Nettie, are not grammatically perfect. This is part of their  charm. Sometimes the letters arc products of haste, sometimes  lonliness. often of yearning to be at home with everyone in  Havana. Always, they are witness to a budding romance that  begins with disguised casuulness and ends in open promises of  marriage. From their beginnings in ISd2 to the last in 1865, Edwin  courts his intended. He even proposes by letter.  Aside Irom thc romantic purposes of the letters, there is a  running account of Union forces entering the South and taking it.  Edwin's description ofthe honour review at the war's end relates:  "All seemed greatly disappointed in Oen'l Shermans Army, il did  so much better than they expected. We are even credited with  doing belter than the Army ofthe Potomac." In typical reticence.  Edwin's comment sums up some of the most painful years in  American history.  The hardships of bivouacking and the sad task of burying the  dead alter a battle are told by a young man who obviously sought  not to disturb his Nettie unduly. About Ihe baule of Gettysburg he  writes: "We succeeded in giving ihe Rehs a good sound  thrashing...it was a horrible sight to pass over thc Battlefield ihe  next day... I cannot give you any idea of the appearance ol the  Battlefield alter a fight."  As Sherman and his troops marched to the sea. they were often  greeted with typical Southern hospitality as they passed through  Edwin docs not hesitate to remind Nettie ofthe pretty ladies Ik  meets. Evidently she retaliates In describing Ihe parlies she  .mends in Havana and ihe young men who escort her. Iheir  leasing letters had to suffice lor they met very infrequently over  the three years.  Ihe book has photographs ol the battle sites, army  encampments and of Nettie and Edwin. As well, the editor adds a  commentary which tills in historical points and errors that Edwin  makes in some ol his accounts, William Walton also keeps us  informed aboul the progress of the romance in the love letters of  the Civ il War Courtship.

The place was  packed with hard core Dire  Straits fans who knew that it  was going to be a great  evening no matter what  happened and a few unconfirmed sceptics who had  adopted a wait and see  attitude. Everybody there was  lucky to have acquired tickets  at all. The show was sold out  within hours of the tickets  going on sale.  Appropriately Dire Straits  opened with "Once upon a  time in the west" from their  second album. For most of the  audience these guys could do  no wrong. Laughing and  enthusiastic they played a  solid two hours of some of thc  best contemporary music a-  vailable.  I think I like Dire Straits  so much obviously because of  the way that Knopfler plays  his instrument, but also  because of how their music  offers a way of being creatively visual without actually  seeing anything. I concur with  drummer Pick Withers when  he says that "The interpretation of the song is up  to the listener... it's really  open".  The first album "Dire  Straits" went triple platinum  in Canada selling over 300,000  copies. "Communique" their  second effort seemed rushed  and was panned by most  critics as being more of the  same, which it was, but that  was partly because they had  already written most of the  material on it before the first  album came out. They probably didn't think it was expedient to put out a double  album as a first.

According to drummer  Withers they are more pleased  with their new album,  "Making Movies", than with  either of the other two.  He feels that it is a more  powerful and insistent recording overall. The music  on the new album bears this  out. Producer Jimmy Iovine  of Bruce Springsteen, Pattie  Smith and Tom Petty fame,  can be heard throughout the  album. The drums, bass and  keyboards all give the music a  consistently tense yet exciting  edge.  Contrary to what some  critics have to say, this band  is not tired nor are they  stagnating.   They   are   the  perfect small club band.  The excitement and commitment they had was contagious. I was tempted to  drive to Seattle for the next  show but they were sold out.  Their third album may not be  as immediately accessible  as the first, but it is definitely  worth the price of admission.

The board of the Area  "B" Ratepayers' Association  held their first meeting since  the election of new officers  on Monday, October 20.  Past President Ralph Mahar  was in attendance and thc  three new board members  were welcomed to the committee. These are Judy Gill.  Jean Scott and Heidi Goodman. Here is a rundown on  your new executive. President: George Murray. Vice  President: Judy Gill. Treasurer is Clarence French.  Secretary Ruth Forrester.  Other board members arc  Fred Greaves, Aubrey Shell-  shear, Bill Vorley, Jean Scott  and Heidi Goodman. Among  the questions discussed was  the foreshore lease problem  which is at the present time  being confronted by the  Regional Board. It was agreed  that letters be sent suggesting  that there be no more foreshore leases issued unless  these are in the public interest. Lot sizes in the area  were again a big topic for  discussion and the situation  was explained in full by Ralph  Mahar for the benefit of the  new directors who had questions regarding the details  involved in this very touchy  matter.  Among the correspondence  read   was  a  letter  from   a  resident    requesting    beach  access   signs.   It   should   be  pointed  out  that  these   requests for signs should be sent  to Mrs. Peggy Connor. Sunshine Coast Regional District,  Box 800, Sechelt and a copy to  Mr.    Tucker    Forsyth,    Department  of Highways,   Box  740, Gibsons. There was also  correspondence from a  resident   regarding  the  placing  of  personal   equipment   and  obstruction at the public beach  at Brooks Cove. There  have  been many complaints on this  subject and the secretary was  instructed   to   write   to   the  Regional   District  Office   requesting that this matter be  once   and   for   all   resolved.  It is on subjects like this that  your Ratepayers' Association  goes to bat for you. but your  participation and support  is  needed.   Therefore  everyone  who lives in this area should  certainly become a member of  this association - not only for  times of crisis but at all times.  They  are  more  or  less  the  "watch   dogs"   of  what   is  happening to your area and as  such, perform a very necessary function in the community.  If you have not yet taken out  your membership you may do  so by  sending  three  dollars  for a  couple  or two dollars  single to Treasurer Clarence  French, R.R.I. Halfmoon Bay.  The  organization  is  only  as  strong   as   its   membership.  so get in there and support  them. Particularly at this time  when   we    read   hints   and  suggestions   of   Area    "B"  possibly  amalgamating with  Sechelt. At the moment il is  only   a    vague   suggestions,  but  no doubt il will flourish  under   pressure   from   some  who think it would be a good  idea. For those of you who do  not - this would be a good time  to    join    your    Ratepayers'  Association in order lhat they  will know your feelings on this  matter when the time comes.  The same goes for those of  you who think it would be a  good idea.  If you have anything on your  mind which you would like to  bring lo the attention of thc  Ratepayers' Association you  may do so by writing to  Hie Secretary, Area "B"  Ratepayers' Association, R.R.  I. Halfmoon Hay.  Hope you have all got  costumes ready for you and  the kids lo join the fireworks  .mil party al thc Halfmoon  Hay Fire Hall on Hallowe'en  night.

The Patrick Murphy family  of Halfmoon Bay were delighted to receive a surprise  package in the mail the other  day. It had come from Holland  and contained tulip bulbs.  It seems that these are being  sent to locations throughout  Canada to commemorate the  liberation of Holland by  Canadian Forces during the  second world war. This  sending of tulips has been  going on lor quite a few years  now, bin Ihis is thc first I've  heard of any being received  in this part of the world.  Prior to the arrival of the  bulbs, Patrick had received a  certificate of gratitude to ur  local Legion branches. This is  a really nice gesture which,  come nexl spring, will give  a profusion of colour wherever  they are planted.  Firemens' nlghl out.  The Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department had their annual  dinner on Friday of the 24th.  The alternate Regional Board  Director Jack Mercer and wife  Jean were their guests at  Ihis most enjoyable evening at  the Jolly Roger Inn.  by Paulette Collins  A loud round of applause  to Mr. Cliff Mahlman for  giving up an evening of his  free time to give the ladies of  the community a lecture and  demonstration on fire safety  in the home. Those who  attended learned everything  from good housekeeping to  planning a safe exit from our  homes. We don't often think  about getting out safely or to  having a common place for  all lamily members to meet  once we are outside. This  was shown to us by a presentation of slides.  As well, we were shown  how gas fumes fall toward  floor level and how very easily  they can ignite. Mr. Mahlman  also showed us different types  of smoke alarms and thc  ways they operate. We also  were shown how to operate  a fire extinguisher properly.  That was a real revelation  for me. Before this demonstration 1 was of the  opinion that one simply  threw it! I hope everyone  got as much out of it as did  1. We may be able to do this  again at a later date if more  of you are interested.  The children's Hallowe'en  party is coming up on October  31st. at 7 p.m. at the Community Hall. We hope all the  parents will come and bring  their children for a good  time.  Well, everyone, the Xmas  bazaar is only about ten  days away. November the 8th  is the big day at the Sunnycrest Mall. I hope everyone  has their projects almost  complete and are thinking  of things to bake. Baking  seems to be really big this  time of year.

Mary and June  Mellis got busy last week  making phone calls, writing  letters, sending telegrams,  and circulating petitions in an  effort to arouse awareness and  opposition   to   the   danger.  They have the support of a  large segment of the population. The subject has been  brought up repeatedly at the  Community Association meetings and the Settlement Plan  calls for removal when the  lease runs out in three years.  But the "concerned citizens  of Roberts Creek" want them  out sooner than that, There  arc 50,000 gallons of propane  sitting there and Fire Chief  Glen Kraus has said before  that an explosion would level  Roberts Creek. The incident in  Spain has given added impetus to the arguments, particularly with the proximity of  the school.

Everybody  finished the course, whether it  was the full 13 kilometres or  the shorter route cutting down  Joe Road.

The public is invited to  come to the annual fireworks  display put on by the Roberts  Creek firemen for Hallowe'en  at the Golf Course starting  around 8 p.m. on Friday.  They ask that you refrain from  parking on the upper side of  the highway to avoid problems  when the ferry traffic comes  through.  Then there's a masquerade  party at the Legion. There'll  be prizes for costumes and  hopefully live entertainment.  On Saturday the men's  volleyball team from Gibsons  are putting on a masquerade  dance at the Hall. Tickets are  $5 each and are available from  Seaview Market.  Anon foiled.  Two arson attempts last  week were foiled by quick  response. The shed at Seaview  Cemetery burned down on  Monday, but that was deliberately set to give the  Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire  Department some practical  experience. The Regional District has- erected a new maintenance shed.  The fire set to mattresses  hauled out onto the porch on  one of the cabins at Camp  Douglas on Sunday, however,  was a real arson attempt.  Fortunately the caretakers  were out on the grounds and  were able to put it out without  the Department's help.  Plan approved.  Word came last week that  the Roberts Creek Settlement  Plan has finally been approved  by Victoria.  Sports support.  Parents of students involved  in sports at Roberts Creek  Elementary met last Tuesday  to discuss fund-raising  schemes and other support  activities. Expenses will be  higher this year because all  games will be "away" since  Roberts Creek is without a  gymnasium.  A bottle drive is planned for  Saturday, November 15. If you  have bottles for pickup prior  to that date phone the school  at 885-9229 or Marlene Longman at 886-8548.  A slave sale has tentatively  been set for Tuesday, November 18. Students will also be  available on an on-going  basis for anyone who needs  odd jobs done such as stacking  wood, raking leaves, or  gathering seaweed. Call Jack  Tiernan at the school.  Various other committees  were set up, including one to  organize luncheons for the  kids. Any parents interested  in helping with this should  phone Judy Fitzgerald at  885-5059.  Firemen's Bingo.  Tickets for the Roberts  Creek Firemen's Bingo on  Saturday, November 8, are  available from any fireman  and possibly Seaview Market.  Craft weekend.  The first weekend of December is shaping up to be  quite  festive   at   the   Hall.  The Roberts Creek Crafts  Fair will span two days  this year, Friday December  6 and Saturday December 7.  For information or to book  space phone Sue Shepherd at  885-2972.  Then on Sunday, December  8, the Wakachoo Rivyoo  are planning a Festival as a  farewell engagement before  they leave for Nova Scotia.  They hope to have crafts,  games, food booths and the  stage will be open for musicians. Anybody interested in  participating is asked to phone  885-5631.  Soccer wins.

Chastisement, until ver) recently.  meant corporal punishment.  Western civilization moved  aua\ from the lash and paddle,  and m 1473 Hritish Columbia  abandoned the strap as an  instrument of chastisement in  the public schools.  No one in authority ever  described an official strap. Thc  schools were simply issued  lenuths ol belting, which  ingenious teachers adapted by  adding weights, slashing the  ends, and soon. No one ever set  down anj ruleslortheadministration ol the strap, except that  each strapping should be  witnessed. Children, especially  little boys between the ages of  si\ and twelve, were strapped  I'or fighting, stealing, lying,  defacing school property, talking baek to teacher, swearing  and sometimes for such academic misdemeanours as having  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  Phone 886-8188 or  886-8023  spelling mistakes. The number  of strokes was entirely discretionary. Children were  usually strapped until they  wept or were visibly shaken.  Iheir hands were often pulled  and stiff for some time after the  punishment. One principal  who ran a "tight ship" used to  save all his corporal punishments until Friday afternoon,  then have thc school listen on  the public address system while  he punished all the juvenile  offenders for thc week past.  Many teachers avoided thc  strap, as did some enlightened  schools. However, the abrupt  withdrawal of corporal punishment shook the teachers of this  province lo the point where a  task force was set up to review  the situation and to see what  alternatives could be found in  order that anarchy should not  revail. In I976 the B.C.  Teachers Federation adopted a  resolution to the effect that  then organization oppose the  use of any form of corporal  punishment in the public  schools of B.C.  As surrogate parents, teachers were (and are) legally bound  io be firm, kind and judicious.  Everyone conceded lhat teachers and principals should have  a right to carry out their vital  tasks without constant distrac-  (33  SECHELT  TIRE STORE  We Specialize In  mtfW'iriBGa  For Pickups  & Four Wheel Drives  Stock Is  Now Complete  Come In And See Dave  For Your Tire Needs  Corner of Wharf  & Dolphin Sis.

A lot of  nonsense was propagated by  certain individuals who hoped  for their own private ends that  the corporal punishment ban  would be lifted. A principal  phoned thc Minister of Education to ask how he should break  up a fight.  lt is just stupid to believe that  an adult in charge of active  children should not be able to  break up a light by thc use of as  much firm, judicious force as  necessary; remove by force  from any child a suspicious  looking or obviously dangerous object or weapon; restrain  any child, using as much force-  as necessary, from any act or  apparently intended act that  might injure the child himself  or other children; propel a child  gently but firmly to the office  for thc use of foul or abusive  language "The aftermath of  these incidents cannot be  corporal punishment; that is  what the Ministry was saying.  It was never intended to  prevent a spontaneous response by a caring and responsible adult to a situation where  management is required.  There always have been, and  always will be. degrees of  control and permissiveness  between home, between  schools, and between communities. Best results come from  school policies developed by  each school staff in consultation wilh parents, interested  community leaders, and with  thc children themselves. Where  poor facilities impede the  operation of thc school, there  will be problem children.  Where teachers arc weak,  insecure, or arrogant, problem  behavior will dominate. Where  children have to endure insurmountable home problems  of poverty, conflict and deprivation, even cruelty, their  conduct at school will reflect  these conditions. Corporal  punishment never did solve any  of these problems.  lt must be acknowledged  thai excessive permissiveness  can be as damaging as excessive  force, and schools appear more  permissive than they used to be.  yet most schools are under  good conlrol. Teachers,  through pre-semcc and in-  service, are professionally  trained along ihe lines ol child  development and have gained  commendable management  skills.

Why, I wonder, don't Canadians rise up in a body and  demand a Constituent Assembly to take the whole can of  worms out of the political  arena?  The present posturing and  bargaining is enough to make  anyone weep who cares about  their country and surely must  make us thc laughing stock of  thc world, giving the lie to all  our claims of mature nationhood.  Our party political system is  totally unsuited to Ihe working  out of a constitution which is  fair to all in such a diverse  country as Canada. In fact,  basic to thc whole issue is that  very system which, relying on  per capita representation is  weighted heavily in favour of  the Central Provinces of Quebec and Ontario and no longer  serves thc growing economic  power in the West nor the  potential of thc Maritime  Provinces, in particular Newfoundland.  That the Liberal Party is not  prepared to face up to the  changes which arc necessary,  except in so far as they affect  their vision of what Quebec  wants is proven by the arrogant  assumption that Liberals speak  for all Canadians. Seemingly  they don't even speak for  Quebec - the Liberal party in  that province hasn't shown any  great enthusiasm for Trudeau's  Constitutional package either.  Liberals may have a mandate  by elected representatives to  speak for Quebec and Ontario,  but in a Parliamentary democracy its my understanding that  Parliament speaks for the  Nation, not a political party.  For the past twelve years  Trudeau has stood on Parliament Hill looking across the  Ottawa River to Quebec, his  telescope, in good Admiral  Lord Nelson fashion, to his  blind eye. and his back resolutely turned to thc rest of the  country, lt may be thc proper  stance for winning a battle, but  we really didn't think wc were  thc enemy.  "Who cares about the West?"  he says and shrugs his shoulders and that oh, so revealing  gesture, suggesting that if we're  not satisfied wc can take a leaf  out of Quebec's book and  blackmail thc federal government too. Then he's openly  contemptuous of our ability to  mount a real separation threat.  And this is statesmanship?  This is thc leader with such  great intelligence?  Far from an honoured place  in history I would think he'll be  remembered as the great manipulator who because of a  fanatical emotional response to  one segment of the community  contributed, if nol to thc  breakup of what could be a  great country, a unique federation of equality and interracial understanding and harmony, at least to a postponement of those aspirations,  increasing the devisive feelings  between people in different  parts of the country.  There have been several calls  for a Constituent Assembly,  the most recent I think from  J.V. Clyne, but though such  suggestions are reported en-  passant by the press, no-one  seems willing lo support or  research such a proposal.  Perhaps because it would be  too low-key and sensible, not  generating thc sort of political  mayhem upon which the media  flourishes.  How would wc put such an  assembly together? There are  probably several ways, from  the appointment of suitable  people to the election of such  people, representative of each  area, including of course the  North. Each Province would  presumably select their own  representatives, men and women of stature and respect.  This would result hopefully  in people with a wide range of  expertise, people whose concern was to formulate a constitution which would fairly  represent the aspirations of all  sections of this country, geographically, socially and ethnically, rather than politicians  whose watchword is always  expediency, who have axes to  grind and who are only responsible to those who have numerical clout at election time.  Such an assembly would  represent not only the geographical regions of the country but its ethnic and social  make-up, French and English  speaking, Indians. Inuit and  Metis, and those whose mother  tongue is not either of the  founding languages - a balanced group of men and women, a  cross section of society.  Does Tudeau really believe  that he alone is indispensable to  Quebec and that such a group  could not come up with a  Federation which would be  acceptable to the Quebecois  and which would ensure the  survival of their language and  culture as part of our joint  heritage? Does he really think  we couldn't strike a working  balance between Provincial  and the Federal governments?  Of particular concern to all  of us should be the great hoax  which is being offered us in the  name of democracy, that  constitutional changes will be  made by referendum. That  means al present anyway that  Ihe Wesl and Ihe Marilimes  continue in their colonial status  vis-a-vis Central Canada, because Ontario and Quebec can  outvote the rest of us. Remember Ihe elections which are over  and decided before thc polls  close in B.C. In the event that  there is a large shift in population, say ten years down the  road, that referendum clause  might well backfire, giving the  West the power to dictate its  will on the rest of the country.  But is that any way to run a  successful Federation? Surely a  group of ordinary citizens  could come up with a more  equitable and co-operative  system than that?  Having waited this long,  surely we can take another 2-3  years for the people to work out  the sort of changes we want in  Federation, rather than having  changes forced on us by a  political party whose leader  treats so many of us with such  arrogant contempt?

Did you know that 80% of all  small businesses fail within  the first three years? Even  with the enormous amount of  time and energy invested in  starting a business it may not  be a success unless you have  taken into account practical  considerations and developed  useful mental attitudes.  Persons considering start  ing a business should be  equipped with skills, background knowledge and per-  sistance. Capilano College is  offering a one-day seminar  covering topics such as financing, record keeping, legal  aspects and administrative  skills necessary in setting up a  small business.  The seminar also covers  some of the advantages of  starting a small business such  as changing a job into a  business and of course, tax  breaks.  If you are considering  starting a business and want  to be a success this workshop  is for you. It will be held  Saturday, November 1st at the  Sechelt Learning Centre, end  of Inlet Avenue, down from  the Post Office from 9:30 to  4:30. Please pre-register by  calling 885-9310.

Sechelt  Al-Anon helps  Problems with alcohol become a lamily disease. Compulsive drinking affects the  drinker and all his or her  relatii iships. Those who care  the most are caught up in the  behavior of the drinker and  they try to control it. They  become sick too.  All their thinking is directed  at what the drinker is doing and  how to get him to stop drinking. This is their obsession.  Their anxiety comes from  watching a loved human being  destroy themselves. They make  the mistake of "covering up"  and trying to "fix everything" -  make excuses, tell little lies to  mend damaged relationships  and they worry. They become  angry because they feel used  and want to strike back or  punish the problem drinker to  make him pay for the hurts and  frustrations.  The family accepts promises  and tries to believe that the  problem has gone away every  time there is a sober period.  They will even deny that there  is a problem. When faced again  with the problem they feel that  they arc at fault because they  cannot solve this for one they  love. These arc their feelings of  guilt.  If they turn to Al-Anon for  help they soon learn that their  own thinking has to change  before thev can successfully  approach the problems of  living. They learn to deal with  obsession, anxiety, anger,  denial and  feelings of guilt.  Emotional burdens are eased  by the group sharing and they  learn that much of their  discomfort comes from their  own attitudes. They try to  change those attitudes, discover feelings of self-worth and  grow spiritually. The emphasis  begins to be lifted from the  drinker and placed where they  have some power - over themselves.  Al-anon can be contacted at  883-9269. 885-3.136, 885-5444,  886-9037 or 886-9059.

Coast News, October 28, 1980  In  Christ's  service  Sanctification moot  In Ki'v, Georiie W, Inuli.  One ol the most longstanding controversies in the  Christian church has been  maintained ovei Ihe English  word "sanctincation", which  come basically Irom the Latin  word "sanctus", which mean'.  "holy".  I he debate which was waged  down through the centuries  und -.till lives loday, is whether  sanctification is a gift or a goal-  whcthci ii is instantly conferred  in God's Holy Spirit, or  whethei it is u goal toward  winch believers strive throughout theii lives.  I heic- are two problem  verses in the I pistlc according  to Si Matthew, in which the  belicvci is told to be "perfect",  which has been interpreted as a  state of sanctification, commanded b\ Jesus himself.  In Matthew 5:48, in the  discussion hy Jesus popularly  known as the Sermon on thc  Mount, Jesus says: "You,  therefore, must be perfect, as  you! I alher in heaven is  perfect."  In Matthew I9:2I, Jesus  spoke to thc young man, who  had obviously lived an upright  and worthy life, but was still  seeking eternal life: ..."If you  would he perfect, go, well what  you possess and give to the  poor and you will have treasure  in heaven; and come, follow  inc."  This sounds like a pretty tall  order, impossible lor man to  achieve, il we think of perfection as being completely without sin. without fault and  without error.  It follows that sanctification  - which is interpreted as beina  in the state ol a new life  imparted to the believer hy the  Holy Spirit, releasing the  converted person from the  compulsive power of sin and  guilt, and enabling him or her  lo love God and serve his or her  ncighboi - would be regarded  as equally difficult to attain.  If however, the Greek word  "leleios". which is translated as  "perfect", is studied, we find it  comes from the noun "telos",  which means an "end. purpose,  or goal", and therefore an  entirely different picture is  presented.  In Greek, the word teleios. or  perfect, means to have attained  <i state or condition in which a  thing or person fully realizes  the purpose lor which it, or he  (she) was planned, designed  and made.  I herclore. man may be said  to have reached the stage of  perfection when he realizes the  purpose for which he was  created and sent into this  world, to lie like (iod.  for justification of this  statement, we would only have  to turn to Genesis 1:26: "Let us  make man in our image, alter  our likeness..."  Ifwc accept this as truth, that  man (woman) attains a state of  awareness ol God and his  relationship to him which  brings him (her) into a stale ol  perfection (sanctification),  then the problem which remains is - how does this come  about'.'  Without citing denominational stances on this much-  discussed theological and doctrinal belief, il would appear  there are three main schools of  thought on sanctification: I)  Santitication enters the life of  the believer, and grows from  "grace to grace", throughout  his (her) life; 2) sanctification  enters the life of the believer,  "by faith through grace, "and  places a burden of response and  behavior on thc believer;  J) santitication is instant and  occurs in the believer as the  direct action of the Holy Spirit.  Probably the greatest point  ol controversy in these interpretations is over the manner of  sanctification occurring - slow  ly, through corporate worship  and sacramental life; slowly  through individual response,  encouraged by corporate and  sacramental nourishment; instantly, through spiritual resources.  It would be thc height of folly  to try to resolve this centuries-  old argument, but it truly seems  to have its roots in those to  mentions of being "perfect", in  Matthew's gosple, and in Paul's  writings.  Paul, of all the writers of thc  New Testament, seemed to lean  heavily toward the second ol  the three basic schools, especially in such passages as II  Corinthians 3:18: "And we all,  with unveiled face, beholding  the glory ofthe Lord, are being  changed into his likeness from  one degree of glory to another;  for this comes from the Lord  who is the Spirit."  Paul also held that this act of  changing came about through  the love (agape), the divine love  of which Christ is the incarnate  expression, and lhat love like  his. selflessly devoted to the will  of his heavenly Father, and  poured out in self-sacrificing  service toward men, is the  essence of Christian holiness,  or sanctification.  Another powerful advocate  of agape as the mark of  Christians' sanctification was  thc greal British evangelist of  the 18th century, John Wesley.  Wesley said pure love, ofthe  kind Paul talked about in the  love hymn, 1 Corinthians 13,  was something which reigned  "alone in the heart and life",  and was a very real possibility  for every Christian to achieve,  providing he had first been  saved by faith, which was a gift  of grace.  Wesley founded Methodist  societies all over the Hritish  Isles, aiming their activities at  following a life-style of sobriety, prayer, workship, hard  work, good stewardship and  service to others.  Some maintain Wesley's way  was "salvation by works", but it  it is difficult to maintain this  view if the critic knows anything about Wesley s life and  theology, about his courageous  evangelical work and his  tireless scholarship in helping  his societies grow in knowledge  of the Bible and its message of  love.  However, the question still  remains moot, and sanctification, the slate of being holy,  still remains in the stale of Mux  which it has lived in for  centuries.

Canada The way to Cecil Mountain  Carl's  corner  In search of a career  On the  Seafood Platter  Coast News, October 28, 1980  13.  by Chak-Chak  The prospect of applying for  City relief along with long  lines of others in the same fix  had lowered my spirits into  a deep pit of depression. My  wonderful dreams of early  spring as I lay in my sleeping  bag under a star-fired sky,  dreaming of following in the  footsteps of Rat Portage John,  were strong in my mind. And  his stern advice to "stay away  from the Gyppos - stick to  the big outfits I" echoed and  re-echoed in my ears.  As the eldest son in a family  of six with a mother, four  sisters and a brother to help  support, I didn't relish the  prospect of arriving home as a  failure at my first venture  away from home. I had given  up a job to take on this high-  risk adventure. The psychological effect on my self  esteem was going to be  harder to live with than the  financial one.  We were an unhappy lot  when Bert arrived in camp late  that night. He didn't look particularly happy but he did  have some news.  One of his stops in his  search had been to the Travelers Hotel in Ladysmith.  There he had talked to the  hotel manager who had told  him of some timber on the  peak of Cecil Mountain near  a little community of Cassidy,  between Ladysmith and Nanaimo.  l?

The contractor they had hired had  quit halfway through the last  setting on the mountain.  The yarder and the fully  rigged tree were sitting there  with half a setting to yard  and load out. They were  offering a good price to get it  cleaned up before the snow  flew. Bert had taken a look,  then told them he would let  them know in a couple of days.  After downing a late snack,  he explained the situation to  us as we joined him in a  coffee.  "The setting is on the park  ofthe mountain and at the end  of the road, which is steep  and crooked. It's a 'billy-goat'  show but if we can get it out in  time, it will put us in business  with a yarder and a bunch of  rigging. The Giovando's own  other timber and it could lead  to other jobs in the spring."  Bert paused and glanced  around the table to see what  our reaction was going to be.  We knew there was more so  we waited.  "There are two things  wrong with the deal. I'm the  only one with highlead experience, but I won't go up  that spar tree. Carl, you want  to be a high-rigger so now is  your chance. I can tell you  how but I can't go up the  tree."  "Jim, the cat' wouldn't  be any good to us there  without a blade. We can't  afford to carry the payments  and have it sitting around. It  will have to go back to the  dealer. But if you think you  can run the yarder and keep  and old bucket of bolts going,  the job is yours."  We all looked at Jim. He  was quiet for a moment, was  ab tit to speak, changed his  mind, then finally blurted,  "No way, Bert. I tried it once  and dropped a rigger in the  passline. Shook me up as  badly as it did him. I would  never try it again I"  We all knew what this  meant. Without Jim we would  lose Peggy. Our little family  group was breaking up. We  were sad about that and  our faces showed it. It took  Peggy to relieve the tensions  ofthe moment.  "Oh, don't be fretting about  it. I suppose this is as good  a time as any to let you all in  on our little secret." She  paused a bit for effect, then  NOW AN EASY  WAY IO RAISE  HONEY  For your club or organization.  We have a copyrighted project that  can easily raise up to $3,000.00 in  time for Christmas.

We are moving back to  the City and Jim is going back  to school. We have discovered  that he is good with figures  and because of his stomach  condition, would be eligible  for re-training in other employment. With his experience  in the woods, he could become  a timekeeper and bookkeeper  in the camps."  Then with a happy lilt to  her Irish brogue, she added,  "And I want me man in me  bedivvery night I"  This was heartwarming  news indeed. The fact that  both Jim and Peggy had  arrived in camp carrying the  burden of unhappy marriages  which had ended in failure,  only to find a new love and  new life to share, was nothing  short of miraculous as far as  we were concerned. Our  congratulations, hugs and  thumpings changed the atmosphere in that cookhouse  from gloom to gladness.  As I picked up the coffee pot  from the kitchen range to  propose a toast to the happy  couple, Bert called, "Hold the  fort. I can do better than  that!"  He disappeared for a  moment, then returned with a  new bottle of medicinal  brandy.  "The first aid kit will  have to wait. We're going to  have a real toast I" He poured  generous drinks all around,  we clinked our glasses to the  beaming pair, then tossed  them off with a relish.  It was as well that we saved  a few drinks for the planning  we still had to do and the  sadness that we all felt that  the last of our little group was  finally breaking up. Jim and  Peg were going to help us load  up and move our stuff to  Cassidy, then they would be  going on to their own destiny  and a new life together.  Two days later we had  wound up our affairs at Kinsol  Siding, took a last, lingering  look at the Koksilah River  and the camp that had been  our Garden of Eden for  awhile, then turned our backs  and headed down the now well  worn trail to Cowichan Station, the Island Highway and  points north.  The Kinsol Siding door was  closing. The Cecil Mountain  door was opening. The heavy  sense of gloom that had  completely absorbed me at the  thought of returning a failure  to the Big City was now  abolished by the challenge  of new things to come. My  last thoughts of Kinsol were  of the night I lay naked in  my sleeping bag; to think once  again of being the protege of  Rat Portage John; and with a  highlead show ahead of us I  might still become the exalted  'highrigger', kingpin of the  woods.

Side-stripes are a large type  of shrimp which are quite  often used in place of prawns.  A kind of seafood that is not  used by most people that live  on our coast, is seaweed.  Seaweed is a very valuable  source of nutrients and is an  important ingredient in Oriental cooking.  The Japanese food called  Sushi serves the same purpose  as a sandwich. It is a cold dish  (of slightly sweet-and-sour  rice) which can usually be  eaten with the fingers, can be  made ahead and is convenient  to carry in a lunch box.  There are three main kinds  of Sushi. Those called Nori-  maki Sushi consist of rice and  an assortment of colourful  ingredients such as fish or  shrimp rolled pinwheel fash-,  ion inside a wrapping of  'Nori'seaweed.  Nori is the Japanese name  for I.aver, an edible seaweed,  that can be purchased in dried  form from most health food  stores. It can be cut or torn  into small pieces and used as a  decorative and tasty garnish  for noodle dishes, soups and  entrees.  The Koreans also use  seaweed and their name for  Laver is Kim. They toast it  and eat it like crackers with  soup or crumbled over the  food.  Soup is the standard  Women's  Art Program  The Women's Program is  offering a one-day workshop  for women who've always  wondered if they could find a  way to express themselves  in an art form.

After an autumn storm  many coast residents can be  seen gathering seaweed to use  as fertilizer for their gardens.  Kelp is one of the varieties  found on our shore and this  can also be used in soup.  It is quite simple; one  makes a good soup from the  usual garden vegetables to  which is added a number of  pieces of the long ribbon-like  leaves that are found branching out from the bulbous  top of the kelp plant. Do not  use too much to start with  until you become accustomed  to the distinctive flavour.  4m*m4mmmWmWm9mm\  The first time I had kelp  soup was about 1937 at Harry  Roberts' place on the south  end of Nelson Island. They  also used the large bulbs,  glazed in sugar, and cut up  like citron and oranges as  candied peel for fruit cakes.  A kind of ginger flavoured  preserve was also made from  the fleshy kelp pulp. The small  bulbs were put in pickles  like baby onions.  Seaweed is also used  commercially in the manufacture of various confections  like jellies, puddings and ice  cream. The variety that is  used for this purpose is known  asagaragar. Sea you.

From the Fairway  by Ernie Hume  Excellent  use  of  the   facilities of the golf course is  still being enjoyed by our local  ye!|r  members  and  a   surprising  number of green-fee golfers  are also taking advantage of  the good weather we are  experiencing for this time of  Marg and Art Park will be  returning from vacation in a  couple of days and will  catch up with any unfinished  business that may have not  been attended to for the last  couple of weeks.  The decision to allow  automotive golf carts on the  course this last year seemed to  be a wise choice. The fear of  tire tracks and ruts on the  fairways has not developed.  They have proven very useful  to those golfers who found  them necessary during the  summer.

Seduced in a silo  Ramblings  of a Rover  by Dee Cee  "I haven't set foot on a farm  for over 40 years and I don't  intend to if I can possibly help  itjjDuring the Depression years  und thc years preceding those  grim times, in my opinion, life  on the average farm was only  one step removed from being  chained to an oar and forced to  row a galley at thc whim of  some would-be conqueror, I  nm aware of course thai greal  changes have taken place in the  meantime with mechanization  ;i(id more modem methods of  wresting a living from the soil,  hut in the days of which I write  farming was no push-button  affair, li was a life of unremitting toil from daylight to  dark and even beyond that. In  many instances a great deal of  the work was performed by  lantern light.  However instead of dwelling  on the dreary aspects of farm  life, I will proceed with my  account of what went on on  lhat particular farm near  Ho wick, Quebec. Needless to  relate old Willie M. hit thc roof  when he found out that I had  never milked a cow in my life  and that my knowledge of  horses was rudimentary. Actually I didn't know a martingale from a whil'lletrce. We  exchanged some heated words  but Dorothy his wife or. as I  later learned to call her. Dot  soon simmered him down by  announcing that she could  handle the situation nicely and  that she was certain that she  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FURNITURE  886-2812  could teach me both occupations in no time at all. What  she didn't mention of course  was what other things she had  in mind as far as my curriculum  was concerned.  If ever there was an example  of the folly of a May/December marriage the affair of  the M's proved it beyond any  doubt. From what I learned  later from Dot, she had been  deprived of a mother's love at a  very early age and had been  raised on the adjoining farm by  a lather whom she had dearly  loved and hy an aunt whom she  equally detested. Sheltered and  sequestered from life (she had  never even been to the city of  Montreal) she was bewildered  and lost when her lather died  and when Willie M., who  undoubted!) had an acquisitive  nature, proposed to her and  offered to lake over the running  of her farm, she accepted. She-  was only IH at the time and had  given little if any thought ofthe  disparity in their ages or ofthe  far reaching effects that gap  would have on her at a later  date.  She was now 22 years of age,  one year older than mysell; not  beautiful by any stretch of the  imagination but possessed of a  fresh natural complexion,  shining shoulder length hair  and a nice compact little figure.  What is more, she had a radiant  manner and, in spite of all that  she had endured, a lively sense  of humour.  It is unfortunate that l am  unable to give a detailed  account of just what went on  between us when Willie was out  of sight and that was often as he  not only was responsible for  delivering the milk from his  own cows to a place called, I  think. Chateauguay near the  American border, but that of  several neighbourhood farmers.

I don't think my lurid  descriptions of these events  would be well received let alone  published.  I hadn't been there a week  when the "hanky-panky" started and it commenced in, of all  places, the silo! lt was late  afternoon and Dot and I had  the cows all fastened up in their  stalls ready for miling but first,  as was customary, we gave  them their ensilage which,  along with hay, comprised their  evening meal. She had followed  mc up the ladder into the silo as  she had done many times  before but on this occasion  seemed to be in a mischievous  mood, grabbing thc end ofthe  fork I was using to toss the corn  out and in general signifying  that she wanted to play. How it  all happened I am not too sure,  but suddenly she was in my  arms and the performance  began.  I am reminded of something  I read long ago by Aldous (or it  could have been Julian) Huxley  in describing the sex act. He  likened it to "one maniac  struggling in the musky darkness with another maniac." It  would have been an apt description of what went on in that  silo but in this ease the darkness  was redolent with the heady  aroma of fermenting cornstalks���not that that mattered���we were far too busy to  notice such trifles!  Once started, it soon was  apparent that Dorothy M. was  insatiable. Whether she was  trying to make up for all the  lost years or whether she was  trying to precipitate a situation  that would free her from her life  of drudgery on the farm with  old Willie was anybody's guess,  but l do know that although I  certainly enjoyed all the shenanigans l was having with  her, I had sense enough to  realize the dangers inherent in a  affair of this kind. Willie M.  kept a fully loaded double-  barrel, 12-guage shotgut hanging on the wall of the kitchen  and no jury in the land would  have convicted him had he used  it to blow my head off.  Came thc morning when he  and l got into a heated  argument as we were loading  the cans of milk on to the  wagon and this is when I quit.  Grudgingly he paid me the $40  he owed me and. in spite of all  Dot's tearful protests, I threw  my few belongings into my  packsack and headed for the  ��Ji��   '.'>'_<���     .-'���     i *     '���.'.���,_kr.  ���' <#.

"On a province-wide average, the Counterattack Program effected a 19.5% reduction in fatal crashes  when implemented in 1977.  This effect continued throughout 1978 and 1979 resulting  in a reduction of 120 deaths,  2,540 fewer injuries and 53.3  million dollars saved in  societal costs over the three  years.

(>nc of the creeks in question  is Wilson (reck and it's  beauliful little tributary llus-  don Creek, both of which have  been adopted by the Gibson's  Wildlife Club who have made  themselves responsible lor lite  welfare ol it's piscatorial  inhabitants  Ihis ycut the main project  has been lo icp.ui the lish  laddei down al the inoiitb ol  Wilson Creek, nexl to .lack-  son's old booming grounds  Ovei the years u had gol  battered around pretl) badlj  and Idled with rocks and sand  brought down bv the water.  I here has been a greal deal nl  controversj ovei lite years as to  whether the fish go up the  laddei or up the rocks alongside  We know they go up somewhere because there are fish in  thc creek above but we don't  know  how  well the ladder is  used and without keeping a  constant watch on a 24-hour  basis it is impossible to know  wilh any degree of accuracy. As  that is not too practical we will  have to wail and see what  happens now alter the repairs  have been carried out. It it does  not work this year then the  possibilities of using the bed  rock will have to be explored.  After we had applied for an  received a grant from the  Salmon Enhancement Program (SEP) people, which  believe me. is not the easiest  thing in Ihe world to gel, we  eventually got going in late  September and. wilh Ihe help  ol a group ol local commercial  fishermen, we diverted the  vvatei .may Irom ihe ladder by  means ol sand bags, cleaned  out all the rocks and gravel,  built forms and poured cement  lo repair ihe broken down  walls. Alter removal ol ihe  forms a considerable amount  ot rocks and gravel were  removed from the creek jusi  above Ihe fish ladder and a  channel dug lo put the waler  back w here il belonged. Even al  low water we are now maintaining a good flow of water  over the ladder and still have  some going over the rocks at  ihe side.  Ihree other jobs on Husdon  Creek involving ihe placement  of logs across the creek to form  pools in which the fish can rest  before going on to the next  section have been carried out  and the creek banks have been  reinforced with sand bags and  rocks at various places. All we  are looking for now are some  fish, coho preferably.  At long last wc have got the  blessing from those on high to  go ahead and use the Whitlock  Vibert boxes in Husdon Creek.  Wc feel that the creek has all  thc ingredients necessary for  Ihe rearing of coho salmon and  as soon as possible wc will he  laking the eggs Irom the fish,  fertilizing them, placing them  in the boxes and then burying  them in the gravel to lei nature  take its course. This will be in  thc nature ol an experiment as  it has not been done in Ihis part  ol ihe province before and we  are hoping for positive results.  Success would be the greatest reward lor those people  who have given so much of  their time to this project,  Although we did gel a granl  from SEP to cover cost of  materials, all thc labour was on  a voluntary basis and to this  date a total of 90 man hours has  been donated. Also donated  has been 120 Sand'cement  filled sandbags at $2.05 each  plus Federal and Provincial tax  from a company in Burnaby  Pursuant to Section 703 of the Municipal Act, a  Public Hearing will be held in the Municipal Hall,  1490 South Fletcher Road.

At the Hearing all persons  who deem their interest in property affected by  the proposed By-law shall be afforded an  opportunity to be heard on matters contained in  the By-law.

Wc would like to thank all  these people for their help and  also those two great guys who  arc developing thc campsite  adjoining Wilson Creek on the  North side of thc highway.

Thanks again to all those  fishermen and members ofthe  Gibsons Wildlife Club who  worked under adverse conditions without complaining  too much.  Interest in the SEP is growing by leaps and bound as  people come to realize that  unless something is done, and  done soon, we stand to lose a  very valuable resource in B.C.

Two  classes of the infection are  acute and chronic. In the acute  class the tissue usually weeps.  In thc chronic class thc skin  appears dry and scaly. Symptoms common to both classes  are stinging, itching and burning.  Athlete's fool is contracted  by walking bcrefoot on infected  floors, such as in showers,  locker rooms and hotel rooms.  There are people who are more  susceptible to the infection  than others because of poor  nutrition or poor hygiene.  In regard to the treatment of  athlete's loot it is recommended to use tolnaftatc  (Tinaclin R). This product  comes in the form of a cream,  solution, and powder. When  thc cream or solution is used it  is applied directly to the  infected area to kill the fungus.  When thc powder is used it is  placed in shoes to absorb  moisture while wearing the  shoes.  In addition to medical treatment of Athlete's fool, there are  other measures of at least equal  importance in its treatment and  prevention.  a) Scrupulous foot hygiene is  necessary. Frequent bathing ol  feet is recommended with  careful drying between thc toes  after bathing. Vigorous rubbing with the towel is discouraged to lessen chance of  irritation.  b) Use wooden or rubber  sandals when using community  bathing facilities.  c) Frequent washing down of  personal bathing facilities to  remove infected desquamated  skin.  d) Light, airy footwear should  be worn when possible. Avoid  rubber footwear. Leather-soled  shoes arc preferred.  c) Socks should be changed  frequently. Cotton or woolen  socks arc better than nylon  because they more efficiently  absorb perspiration.  f) Small wads of cotton maybe  placed between the toes al night  to help maintain dryness.  g) Routine use of powder will  help keep feet dry. lise between  every change of socks. Shoes  not being worn should be  dusted with a drying powder.  Application of an antifungal  dusting powder containing  tolnafteate immediately after  using communal bathing facilities may help prevent the '  development of athlete's foot.

Cadet W/O Murlies Guen-  ther, 16, of Egmont with an  "A" on her course report  was also a contender for  Europe, however only one  prize to Europe was awarded  to our Corps. A third Sunshine  Coast cadet, Sgt. Mindy  Peters, 15, of Pender Harbour  also received an "A".  The Sunshine Coast Corps  is particularly proud of the  three cadets as this Corps  has been in existence for less  than two years.  Captain Robert Sommerfield suggests any young  people from 13 to 18 years old  inclusive who would like to  take part in a well-organized  youth organization should  call the following: Capt.  Sommerfield 885-2180; Capt.  Fitzgerald 885-2970; 2 Lt.  Sommerfield 885-2180.  This year's training will  involve Search and Rescue,  first aid, mountaineering,  bush survival, marksmanship,  citizenship and swimming  instruction.  "We intend to have a  competitive swim team and we  have first-class instructors  for that," Capt. Sommerfield said.

On Sunday, Mrs. Gordon  from Roberts Creek called me  to say that she had been  talking to some youngsters  who had seen some of the  older boys chasing the salmon  in the creek. The kids were  scared to say who the others  were and you can't blame  them for that, but at least they  were smart enough to know  that the older ones were doing  something wrong.  I must admit that it's an  awful temptation for the kids  to chase the salmon along the  creeks. It's the job of parents  to educate them into a hands -  off appreciation of the annual  marvel of spawning salmon,  rather than letting them learn  for themselves as they mature. The loser in the meantime is the fish.  If conscience is not enough  of a deterrent, then it might  be timely to point oui that it's  against the law to harass a  fish spawning in fresh water.  Sargent'. Bay Society.  From the look of their last  newsletter, the society is  increasing in membership and  is growing steadily.  The society was conceived  by residents in the proximity  of Sargent's Bay when they  began to fear that the marsh  area at the head of the bay  would be lost to development.  Since their inception, they  have gathered some pretty  hefty allies. Both the Second  Century Fund and the Vancouver Natural History Society, plus local concerned  groups have pledged their  support.  If you want more information, call 885-5698 or 263-  7666. Membership to the first  of April '81 is only $2.50.  If you want to join, the address  is: The Secretary, Sargent's  Bay Society, P.O. Box 1486,  Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0.  Conservation Officer.  The job of the Conservation  Officer is not an easy one.  Even though the title has been  changed from Game Warden  to make it sound better it's  still a damned if you do and  damned if you don't type of  job.  One of the unpleasant  aspects of Jamie Stephen's  job has been covered (some  say too much), by me in the  past few weeks. I'm talking  about the bears that had to be  destroyed - another was  dispatched last week at' the  Copel Farm near Redroofs.  Unsavoury as it is, it has been  necessary under the present  set of circumstances and I'd  far rather see the situation  handled by an expert than  have the public running  around blasting anything that  moves.  Another example is when he  had to deal with a beaver  at Jim Tyner's place on Pac  Lake last week. Food in the  area had become so scarce  for the beaver that it was  eating carrots and potatoes  and a couple of apple trees  from Tyner's garden. This was  the first time that Jamie had  run into a situation like this.  A lot of the work done by  the Conservation Officer is  never seen. He had a call the  other day from a logging  company at Skwaka River at  the head of Jervis Inlet. They  had shot a grizzly that was  making a nuisance of itself.  It turned out that the bear was  in poor condition, covered in  boils or ulcers.  This area is where a mal  formed grizzly was found last  year. Coincidentally the area  was also sprayed with chemicals by the forestry, and they  are again applying to respray  it, this time with Kranite.  Without people like Conservation Officers and their  counterparts in the Fisheries,  there would be no central  collecting agencies for this  type of information.  Without any proof, it would  be irresponsible in the extreme to say that the spraying  ofthe area had had an adverse  effect on the grizzly population, but I will be interested  in the results of a November  census that Jamie will be  taking part in.  I wrote this piece to point  out that the job of the Conservation Officer is to be the  liaison between the wild life  and the human life in his area,  not a hunter, but a protector of  both.  The hunting season is open  at the moment. Can you  imagine the chaos if he wasn't  around?  Odds'n ends.  The eastern bluejay is still  hanging around Sechelt. This  time it was seen by Mr.  Wilson. It was at his feeder  iemember the swans that were born al Ihe S-bends beside Coastal Tire? A couple of Hum Dew off  last week and have not returned. They are almost full si/cd but still have juvenile plumage. If you see  them, give Gary Puckett a call at 886-9508, failing that, try him at (iibsons Realty. Ihe birds have  probably stayed in the vicinity.  on Saturday afternoon. The  Wilsons live across from the  Arts Centre, so people in that  area should keep their eyes  open.  Another great blue heron  was found dead. This time at  the wharf in Gibsons. This  brings the total to five that  have either died or been  obviously  sick  in  the  past  month. There are no results  from the autopsy of one of the  dead ones as yet.  It looks as if a marten was  the guilty party in the loss of  the chickens at Roberts  Creek. It was livetrapped and  the lady was planning to  release it up one of the logging  roads the following morning.

Lindwood estimated tin approximate total timc-frome of one  year for implementation ol the sysiem. should ihe hoard give its  approval. Due to projects presently occupying ihe UTA, the  Phase I Concept Plan pan ol the study could begin in about three  months, early in the new year.  Phase I ol ihe study, once begun, would lake three months and,  should Ihe board give ils blessing. Phase 2 would lake a further  ihree months, with thc tendering and final implementation to take  a fun he i lour months.
