Several members of the group which  has been working on the old-growth  strategy for the past 18 months, includ-  Developing forest inventor)' next step in process  ing Warren Mitchell and Andy McKin-  non from the Ministry of Forests and  Sharon Chow of the Sierra Club, were  on hand to discuss draft policy with  about 50 members of the public, representing a wide range of interests, at  Rockwood Lodge.  Among the ideas presented in the  policy is that a series of old-growth  reserves be created around Ihe province  to preserve the ecological systems and  biological diversity represented in them.  So far, there are no specific sues or particular areas suggested for the reserves,  but top priority would be given to preserving old-growth stands in specific  ecological zones where very little old  growth remains, said McKlnnon,  In addition, the policy suggests creating "specially managed" buffer areas  where certain forest management techniques must he practised and a third cat -  egory of "commodity areas" where  timber harvesting is given a higher priority.  All three types of area would be pari  of a province-wide land use strategy to  IWA softens  stand on book  by Jane Say*  The local IWA appears lo lie  backing off front a request lo  remove the Ixxik MAxine's Tree  from school libraries, following  a closed-door meeting with a  special school board committee  Tuesday.  Instead, the loggers are asking Ihe school hoard lo consider  putting more lilies in tlte  libraries - especially materials  which present the forest industry  and its workers in a inure positive light.  Following the meeting with  Ihe board's education committee, local IWA president Murray  Cantelon said removing Maxine's Tree from Ihe schools is  not necessarily the answer to  loggers' concerns. "We said we  wanted balance," lie commented. "We didn't say we wanted  anything banned."  Cantelon said he instead  asked ihe school board lo consider adding library materials -  such as the book Now You're  Logging by Bus Griffiths and  videos from the forest industry  explaining the reasons for  clearculs - which would present  logging in a more positive light.  Cantelon also said his group  would like to see more books in  the schools which present the  role of fishing, logging and  other resource-based industries  in the history and development  of Coastal communities.  "Kids should he aware and  proud of their history on the  Coast," he said. "We can't all be  doctors and lawyers."  Both Cantelon and school  superintendent Clifford Smith  described the meeting as very  positive.  The discussion was closed to  reporters and the public, partly  in light of recent national media  attention on lite issue. Said  chairperson Pal Stuart, "We  don't want to blow this out of  proportion,"  Pareilf lihi Gilison, a fourth  generation logger whose concerns about Maxine's Tree  sparked the debate, also  described the meeting as positive. "They agreed I had a legitimate concent," he said.  Gibsons said he told the committee he is not as concerned  with the book's presence in the  library as he was with the type  lum In page 2  Wnmen-ln-Trudes program members used Iheir skills to work on two trailers set  aside nl Brothers Park for Gibsons Teen Outreach Centre last Thursday as part of  a renovation project.

The charges included one  count of making a pipe bomb,  one count of possessing a pi: .tol  without a permit and two counts  of possessing prohibited  weapons, including a sawed-off  shotgun and a shuriken "throwing star."  Hunt also pleaded guilty to  nine counts of forging documents, and five counts of possessing stolen property, which  included items from the Fawn  Road Market in Halfmoon Baj  as well as a large quantity of  mail.  A presentence psychiatric  report was ordered by Judge  Shirley Giroday, following recommendations from both  Crown and defence counsels.  A forensic report is also  expected within the month. Sentencing by provincial court  judge is set for March 31.  Youth drug program jeopardized  by Stuart Burnside  The Sunshine Coast Breakaway (SCB)  program for young drug and alcohol offenders is in serious financial trouble and alderman Michael Shanks has asked council to  come up with a requested $2,000 to help  keep the organization alive.  "If it saves even one youngster's life for  having participated in the program, then it's  worth a lot more than $2,000," Shanks said  The three-year-old program is teetering  on the brink of folding, according to Shanks,  because, rather than emphasizing the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse, it focuses on  helping youths that already have alcohol and  drug related problems.  Both the federal and provincial governments' only provide funding to groups that  emphasize prevention, Shanks said  A letter from the organization's fundraiser, Diana Sheehan, states that "over 65  youths" used the service provided by SCB in  1991 and all funding came from the community. Pan of that service , as noted in Shee-  han's letter, consists of two full-time  counsellors hired to help youths in need.  Shanks argued it is time an umbrella organization was established to allocate funds for  Coastal groups like SCB. but said the first  order of business was the requested $2,000  grant.'  "This is a crisis situation," Shanks said,  "thev need our help right now."  Council referred the matter to an up-coming finance meeting for further discussion.  Gibsons council received a similar request  for $2,000 funding Tuesday, and referred the  matter to Ihe next finance committee meeting. "This is an organization that does some  real good work with our youth that are experiencing a drug problem," said Mayor Eric  Small when the matter was discussed.  '���ruHtHatju  Driver Diane Schafer celebrates survival of the Gibsons  Bus. Joel   Johnstone   photo  *^ Community  donations refuel  Gibsons Bus  by Charles Hart  An outpouring of community support gave the Gibsons Bus an  11th hour reprieve Tuesday, raising the $15,000 needed to keep the  service on the road.  "We did it guys, we did it," i ried jubilant bus driver Diane Schafer  in Gibsons council chambers Tuesday. The Old Age Pensioners  group had just handed the non-profit society a cheque for $1,000 and  council earlier awarded a grant-in-aid totalling $2,520 - half of what  the society requested.  "It was the community support that saved the bus." Schafer said  later. "The people raised $15,000!" With other grants and fundraising  plans in the offing. Schafer said the society is convinced the bus will  now be able to continue to operate. As of Thursday, community  donations had reached $15,222. The society is offering a free bus ride  day Saturday (March 14) to celebrate. (Clip out the thermometer for a  bus pass.)  Short of the fundraising goal at the Feb. 29 deadline set by the  society, directors held a special meeting last Saturday and decided to  keep the bus running till Tuesday pending a response from council on  the grant application. Council pegged its contribution at $420 a  month for a maximum six months, so long as the bus continues to  operate.  "We had some very mixed feelings about this," said Aid. Ed  Steeves, adding it was "a very courageous effort by citizens" to try to  preserve the service." Other council members expressed their reservations about funding the bus when the municipality is already paying  an $11,000 annual subsidy for B.C. Transit service.  turn to page 2  Planner Buchan  Sechelt bound  Sechell council announced  the hiring of a new municipal  planner at last Wednesday's  council meeiing and it's Rob  Buchan, currently municipal  planner for the Town of Gibsons.  Riichan announced his resignation lo Gibsons Tuesday  Sechelt Mayor Nancy  MacLarty said Buchan will  assume Rob Sabine's former  position at the end of March.  When contacted by the Coast  News, Buchan said he was  excited by the change. He said  he had applied for the job when  it opened in December, had  gone through the screening procedure and had finally been  hired.  Buchan previously served a  part-time Sechelt planner during the district's expansion in  1986. He continued to work  for the district two days a week  lor more than two years. His  services were contracted out by  the Town of Gibsons.  Rob Kuchaii  Buchan said he will be making a residence change to  accompany his new position  and would lie moving lo Davis  Ray.  He said he will miss Gibsons and noted his affiliation  with the town goes back 22  years.  Date set for Gibsons  by-election, pool vote  The by-election to replace Gibsons aid. Margaret Morrison will  be held in conjunction with the pool referendum Saturday May 2.  Monison recently resigned her seat for health reasons. The nomination deadline for aldermanic candidates is Thursday, April 16 at HI  am.  The referendum to borrow $305,000 for proposed renovations to  the Gibsons pool will involve town voters and residents in electoral  areas D (Roberts Creek), E (Elphinstone) and F (West Howe Sound).  If approved, the pool upgrading would add about $7 to the tax bill of  a homeowner with property assessed at $100,000.  The Gibsons polling station will be set up in the Marine Room,  under the Gibsons Library at 464 South Fletcher Road, from 8 am to  8 pm. An advance noil is being considered.  Locations for rural area polls have not been settled yet, but there  will be a poll in each of the three electoral areas participating.  > Coast News, March 9, 1992  The Sunshine Coast  1 questrlan Club  invites you  Join the Fun at our  St. Patrick's Day  Dance  Mar   14. 1992     8pm    lam  ROBERTS CREEK HALL  TICKETS S 10.00 EACH  news  HEU membership to vote on  'final' pay offer Thursday  A portion of all  funds will be used  to support our local riders  AVAILABLE AT:  Quality Farms  Ernie & Gwens  Roberts Creek Store  Club Members  Seward Shell  in Lower (iibsous  continues its  25L a diiy give-away  ul Shell <.(.Id I'lcrniuin I'iik-aik-d or Bronze (.iaMtlinc  LASTEST WINNERS  l.llia'drlll.llll.

"There's little or no doubt thai tlte task of  revisiiiji the plan is of such It magnitude that it can hardly lie handled  I in-hotise by the staff available," Buchan said Tuesday.

Ilio local media don't have a lol of cause lo get  iinlii'iiani ahout the freedom of the press.  Bul recent actions taken by the local school board to  keep its committee meetings behind closed doors have  caused us lo sil up and take notice. Such decisions make  Sechell council the subject of a past local column on a  certain unwillingness to communicate wilh the media -  innk like u glowing example of o|H'ti democracy.  Like must locally elected bodies in the province, the  local school district has both tegular board meetings and  various committee structures, And while it's true that  issues ate \oied on In lite lull hoard only al regular meetings, a lot of background discussion among trustees, presentations from interested groups and free exchange of  different points of view on issues - which after all is one  of the foundations of democratic government - goes on in  the committee meetings.  lor taxpayers who might he interested in knowing what  their elected bodies are discussing - these meetings in  School District 46 aren't open to public scrutiny, as the  media were informed when the education committee met  last Tuesday to hear a presentation from the IWA on the  Controversial Maxine's Tree book.  "It's policy," said committee chairperson Pat Stuart by  way of enlightened explanation. "We don't want to blow  this out of proportion."  Superintendent Clifford Smith, when asked the reason  for the decision, saitl trustees have been burned before by  the media on the French immersion issue. "I guess we're  a little camera shy."  Sony, but for a public body supported by taxpayer's  money, those reasons just aren't good enough.  Committee meetings of both Sechelt and Gibsons councils and lite regional district are open. And as time and  resources permit, the local media often attend them to get  background and form a belter understanding of the different points of view on important issues. Other school districts, Nanaimo, Vancouver and Qualicum to name a few,  keep all their committee business out in the open. The fact  is, the School Act makes provision for what matters may  be discussed behind closed doors and intense public inter-  \\ Qitlp^,iSiif^'*siMiWS:uss personnel, property,  or legal mutters are -.ihey properly mandated to move in-  Ciimera.

Contrary to some opinions, the media are not out to  randomly "skewer" either members of the school board or  other individuals in the community, We're also members  of the community and know that at ihe end of the day we  must go back and be responsive to it. We're not public  relations agents for any elected group. But at the same  time, it can hardly be said that local newspapers ignore  the many positive innovations that have been spearheaded  in the local education system.  It is not always be "comfortable" for trustees to have  their discussions in the open. Like any elected body, the  school board is often charged with making difficult decisions which may affect it variety of conflicting groups in  the community - not all of which will be happy with decisions or what the trustees may have to say about them.  Such is the nature of politics and of elected office.  letters  Central dispatch  claims misleading  1 am concerned about a number of misleading claims being  made regarding the proposed  central dispatch system for the  Sunshine Coast.  Regional director Jim Gurney has been quoted as saying  that the police and ambulance  would "probably enter into the  dispatch sevice" and would  "pay to participate" and director  Brett McGillivray is quoted as  being "optimistic lhat the  RCMP and ambulance service  will get on board once the service is operational."  Expenditures of this magnitude deserve more than probabilities and optimism, and if  these gentlemen had done their  homework they would know  that police and ambulance have  their own dispatch systems and  will not forego these to become  part of a fire department dispatch centre.  The dispatch centre is being  touted as a first step towards a  911 system; 911 is essentially a  telephone network, the major  costs involved in setting it up  are for telephone, not radio  equipment. When 911 comes  inio a community it is operated  by the police from a major communications centre, usually  Vancouver.  The 911 operators reroute  the calls lo Ihe appropriate  agency, ie: police, fire or ambulance, who in turn dispatch their  own people. If a 911 system  was installed on the Coast  tomorrow, Ihe fire calls would  be routed through the current  fire dispatch centre, Anderson  Alarms. However, given the  astronomical costs of 911, it is  unlikely that we will see it on  the Coast for many years.  The North Shore, Burnaby,  New Westminster and Surrey  have only had 911 for the past  two years. Their calls are  answered in the Vancouver centre.  The central dispatch idea  proposes to employ 4.5 people  at a cost of $170,000 annually,  including benefit packages. This  is about S37.000 per person.  The entire volume of alarm  calls on the Coast is about 600 a  year, less than two calls every  24-hour period. Mr. Gurney  makes the statement that "this  could become a money-making  proposition" and at last I think I  know what he means. An annual lottery could be held for these  positions. Wouldn't you spring  for a couple of chances on a job  which paid you $37,000 annually to handle one or two calls per  12-hour shift?  When all the misconceptions  are pared away all we will he  getting is a central dispatch service fot the volunteer fire  departments of the Sunshine  Const. I believe that lliis proposal, at this time, is too ambitious  for an area of this size and population, and llinl when a lire dispatch centre is necessary it  could be installed at a much  lower cost. Until such lime. If  there are unresolveable problems with Ihe current system,  perhaps the SCRD could  arrange to have our dispatch  needs handled by an existing  fire department dispatch centre,  1 urge all concerned taxpayers to sign the counter petition  before March 13, 1992.

(Name withheld)  Molly's Reach - to  be or not to be?  Joan Thompson and daughter had a great idea and the  owner of 'the Reach', Harry  Smith concurred. The idea was  to make Molly's Reach into a  real restaurant. "What a greal  idea" everyone said.  So. with the owner's permission, inspectors were called,  technicians hired, wiring and  equipment purchased, rent paid  and the terms of the lease  adhered to, bul the owner never  managed to get around to signing the lease.  All systems are now on hold.  Workers and technicians have  completed to specifications;  counters, furnishings and electrical equipment are in place;  debts are mounting while Joan  Thompson and investors are in  limbo.  Rumour has it that the building is, or will be, sold. What is  to become of this notable Canadian landmark? Is Molly's  Reach to be or not to be? Is this  to be another Gibsons  pipedream?  GWEN ROBERTSON  Gibsons  Wilson's pugnacity unfortunate and inappropriate  It is difficult not to be critical of the Leader of  Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition in British  Columbia this week.  I share the view of most of his neighbours that  Gordon Wilson. MLA for this riding and leader of  Ihe Liberal Party, is a splendid fellow, stalwart and  intelligent and of the highest moral fibre.  Back in the days before politics became his  consuming activity. I can even lay fair claim to  have been a friend of Gordon's. In the early '80s  we acted in a couple of plays together and he  brought to that activity the high work ethic and  conscientiousness that we have come to expect  from him from bis days on the regional board.  So far so good. Intelligent, high moral fibre,  and a fierce work ethic. We could throw in the fact  that he is eloquent, though sometimes his glibness  may be a drawback. Sometimes Gordon gets so  inflamed with his own eloquence that he ends up  saying that which would perhaps have been better  thought about some more.  ! All right, the man is human and true enough it  is that a jaundiced survey of that which passes for  democratic representation in much of this country  would seem to put Gordon head and shoulders  above most of our elected. And in some ways so  he is.  -   But our fledgling MLA is not just an MLA. The  musings  John burnside  collapse of the Socred party has vaulted our rookie  into the second most prominent political position  in the province and his rookie mistakes are going  to be magnified, his slips of the tongue are going  to be trumpeted loudly the width of the entire  country and, sadly, last week he made Iwo such  mispronouncements. iwo serious gaffes which he  would have been much better sleeping on before  making utterance.  In die matter of the constitutional debate, Wilson would reject the proposals brought down by  Ihe parliamentary committee out of hand. He may  be currying some popularity with this hardnosed  stance, but the time is coming when Canadians are  going to have lo compromise if they are to have a  country at all. It is inappropriate thai Wilson  should be so intransigent; by contrast the govern  ment's consitutional spokesman Moe Sihota has  been cautious and conciliatory in his pronouncements and it is with such virtues that the country  was built and has survived thus far.  Wilson's flambuoyant intransigence reminds  me of a point that I have made before: the poisoned hostility of the political atmosphere before  the last election enabled Wilson to pose as a middle man. Let's have done with polarised politics  and return lo the middle way, he said to the people  of British Columbia. That is the conventional wisdom of the Liberal Party, but in point of fact Gordon Wilson is one of the most combatalive creatures in public life and his pronouncements on the  consitution are indicative of just that.  If illustration were needed of this point. Wilson  was not slow to provide it. His accusation to the  newspapers that Ihe designated speaker was playing politics in cutting the funding which went for  the office of the Leader of the Opposition is virtually unprecedented in Ihe annals of parliamentary  democracy.  If Wilson fell the cuts in funding were unfair,  surely he could have discussed the matter in private before launching his condemnation of Ms.  Sawicki, a rookie like himself. But Wilson is not  operating in a vacuum. He, along with the rest of  us. has just learned that the state of the province's  finances was seriously misrepresented by the former governnment.  Wilson's plaint that he cannot get as much  money as Mike Harcourt got in the last regime has  an unattractive whine to it. Something has to be  changed from what was happening before and presumably the Leader of the Opposition can be asked  to make sacrifices along with the rest of us.  That Wilson chose not to negotiate quietly on  the issue, bul to launch a condemnation of another  rookie MLA who is also wrestling with the mastery of the Speaker's office is an evidence of his  tendency towards unthinking pugnacity.  In B.C. we have been enjoying a break from the  venom that characterised public life when the  Socreds and the NDP were at each other's throats  in the Vander Zalm years. 1 think the voter could  learn to like it this way. Wilson be warned.  In Canada, if the country is to be saved, we  can't have rookie MLA's who have fallen into  prominence shooting from the lip with the same  aforementioned and unfortunate pugnacity.  Gordon Wilson may yet grow into a politician  of true stature in this province. His pronouncements of last week indicate he has some considerable distance to go.  c&wst  The Sunshine Coast News is locally owned  and published on ihe Sunshine Coast, BC  every Monday by Glassford Press Lid..

The most successful  publishing outputs, other than kiddies' books, are cooking books.  Cooking columns abound in all the press from sea to sea. You can  hardly turn on a television set without there being some cheery  juniper there, or some mature lady from New Orleans, or some mag-  aifico chef with a hat too tall for the screen, telling you how to fry up  onions, or saute shrimp, or bake a Mennonile date cake - it goes on  forever.  ; You may not know how to bake a Mennonile date cake and I am  not arguing with any of this. Cooking, as a subject, is vast. Ask any  really top diet. Savourin for example, and he will tell you, or would  have, that each of his dishes is unqiue. There is no limit therefore to  how long you can go on talking about this.  '. Some years hack a friend in Toronto received a hefty book, about  the size of the Oxford Dictionary, for review. It was the LaRousse  Encyclopaedia of cooking, translated from the French. The French  have the faith that everything can be somehow totted up and put  down.  ��� The LaRoutte, sometimes referred to as the bible of cookery, is  certainly a handy, if heavy, txiok lo have around. It tells you how to  Quarter a Wildebeest, and it has a recipe for elephant's trunk and so  <Jn. bul of course, it also fills you in on a full range of turbots,  casseroles etc., and tells you how to boil an egg. How to review such  a book? As I remember it my friend gave it a mild sideways buffet by  pointing out lhat, while it included a recipe for beaver's tails, it had  Ho mention anywhere of Arctic char.  A vast subject certainly, but a touchy one. People, unexpected  people, can lake strong stands on cooking. I remember Joe Austin,  kite of this town, had a stew bubbling away on the back of his stove  in a long rangy apartment in Toronto. Various actors, writers etc.  look occasional refuge there. It became known as the Ponderosa and  Joe. a gent, dished up the stew.  There came a time when a man we called Chief Laughing Waler  was in temporary residence at the Ponderosa He was a man who  in a nutshell  s. nutter  believed in there being potatoes in a slew. and in tact, he put potatoes  in Joe's stew. Joe fished them out and told lum thai if he ever did it  again he was oul the door Chief Laughing Water, however, got up in  Ihe middle of the night and put a potato m Ihe slew Joe was not  deceived and thai was the last we saw of laughing water.  High stakes you sec. and uncompromising principles involved A  slew you would think, Ihe French cassoulei, a gypsey's pot, would be  the simplest thing Not so.  I was told a story once aboul a small bul respected Paris restaurant It hail had generation! Of owners, and its cassoulet, its basic  stew, had been simmering away in a greal iron cauldron there lor  over UK) years Hares, partridges, bits ol boars, 1 guess had been  added lovingly and judiciously from day lo day. Thyme, rosemary,  bay leaves in season The Keeper of the Pot. you can almost see, basing his daily taste, adding this and that, a bit of brandy it might be.  The cassoulei was what this restaurant was famous for.  Unfortunately a crusty historian came in one evening, was served  a steaming bowl, and told wilh some pride lhat this cassoulet had  been going lor 100 years. He started back.  A hundred years, at that time, covered the time that Paris had been  under seige by the Prussians. They had resorted to eating the animals  in their zoo, anything and everything in sight.. Good god, said the  historian, there's got to be rat in this stew.  Apparently it was enough to do for the old cassoulet. Not being  any conceivable kind of a chef myself, or a public health officer, 1 am  not prepared lo make much comment on this tale. There is however,  the growing impression that, arts of cookery or no, the scope of really  tasty stuff is being in some inexorable way withdrawn from us.  Heartquake raises  needed funds  The February Heart Fund  Campaign has been completed.  However, like heart disease and  strokes the education and  research that is funded with the  contributions goes on to help us  prevent this disease process.

Box  1525, Gibsons, BC VON IVO.  Thank vou.  MARY FINDLAY  Gibsons  Working off the  noise complaints  In my opinion, the noise is  not that bad.  There are people fighting to  restrict the hours of operation at  Construction Aggregates pit,  when realistically they're fighting to put people out of work.  1 live in the Sandy Hook area  and I fail to hear the "noise  vibrating along the mountainside." 1 do hear the log loader at  the dryland sort nearby, which  doesn't bother me a bit, not to  mention the dozens of log  trucks that roar up and down the  road. These are sounds of people working. It doesn't matter  where you live, there will  always be things that you have  to learn to contend with.  I feel thai it's just a matter of  how important it is to these people who arc complaining about  the noise: to keep people working together as a community, or  to keep thinking of themselves  and put people out of work  because they refuse to even try  to get used to the "noise". Does  it mean that much to them?  If the pit were to be shut  down at night, knowing how  many people had been put out  of work because of it, 1 would  never be able to sleep through  the "peaceful" night!  MICHELLE HULL  Gravel pit has  positive side  ��� I was very much dismayed  when 1 read a letter to the editor  ; in the Feb. 7 - Feb. 13 issue of  the Leader from Dana Sheehan.  The contents of her letter  letters  included the following statement made by Mayor MacLarty  re: Construction Aggregates  gravel plant operation. Mayor  MacLarty staled "The entire  town suffers from the gravel  pit...and the town does not benefit in any way." 1 feel this  statement is demeaning and  irresponsible on the mayor's  part.  Of the 46 full-time employees at the gravel plant. 45 are  full-time residents of the Sunshine Coasl. at least 13 employees, that I know of (including  myself), have purchased homes  here in Sechell in the past few  years. We pay taxes and shop  almost exclusively in the com  munity,  Since Construction Aggregates Limited began its operation a few years ago. it has been  estimated the company now  generates a payroll of over two  million dollars annually; a great  portion of these dollars are  spent right here in Sechelt.  The company also spends  tens of thousands of dollars per  month locally at such places as  (1 shall mention a few) Gibsons  Building Supplies. Sechelt,  PetroCanada. Choquer and Sons  Machine and Welding. Kal Tire  and numerous other local businesses.  It is most unfortunate that  Dana Sheehan has had to con  tend with the sound of frontend  loaders and crushers. 1 know  that the company is doing  everything possible and will  continue lo pursue every avenue  possible in order to eliminate  this annoyance.  So. on behalf of my fellow  employees. I sincerely hope that  this 'vendetta' against the gravel plant operation will not be  perpetuated by the continual  negative publicity to the point  where it may undermine the  integrity of those of us who  work here and have helped and  will continue'to help contribute'  io the vast economic growth of  this community.

MAl-REEN FATH  Roberts Creek  Alcohol not only  cause of accidents  The March 2 issue of this  papet carries a report on the  dangers of impaired driving as  portrayed by former police officer Michael Buckingham in a  lalk lo BlphinitOlie students.  The moral of his story - don't  drink and drive - stands on its  own merits.  However, I would like to  raise a couple of related points:  Firstly, accidents aren't directly  caused by drinking, bul by  impaired judgement, impaired  awareness, or impaired driving  skill. Such Impairment, particularly the first one. happens,  tragically often, without the  benefit of alcohol, as, for example, in Mr. Buckingham's experience.  Anyone causing an accident  by reckless driving is likely to  be charged with any of a number of offences, including criminal negligence. Yet policemen  engage in such sport as a matter  of policy, it seems - sometimes  with the same disastrous result  to themselves as to Ihe poor kid  thev are chasing, or to unsuspecting neutral parties.  The teenager, more often  than not. who may be impaired,  or who perhaps has stolen the  vehicle he drives, panics and  tries to get away. Many have  been killed in the attempt, others seriously injured or crippled.  Often innocent people are hit,  and any number of cars or properties may be damaged in the  process.  In such cases it is not a matter of drunk driving, but of dangerous driving of which the  police are as guilty as the guy  they chase. Because of their  own impaired judgement, the  police frequently create situations in which accidents are  liable lo occur.  We see this sort of thing  incessantly on television il we  flip through the stations Presumably that is where police  officers find their role models  (The lile-iinilatiiig-arl theory).  Nevertheless, there ought to boil law and the police, of all peo-Z  pie, ought not to be above it.     Z  STEVE SKIMMELANUC  Gibson?

An application to rexone the property  Marine I lo allow construction  of a second marine ways on the  Gibsons waterlront has sparked  an emotional community debate  aboul future waterfront development.  Length) petitions both sup-  DOfllng and opposing the Hill's  proposal were included with  Tuesday's agenda ai town hall.  Planner Rob Buchan has recommended the zoning application  be turned down for technical  reasons; that the site is too small  to meet zoning requirements  and does not conform to the  multiple family land-use designation proposed for the waterfront in the draft community  plan.  The meeiing. in the Cedars  convention room is for council  information purposes and is not  a formal public hearing.

The OCP amendment would  add the Thurber geotechnical  and environmental report to the  existing OCP. Council stressed  that the amendment has nothing  to do with the second draft for a  new official community plan,  which is not expected to be  ready for a second public hearing until late in the year.  Restrictive covenants  In a move to tighten up  municipal control over developments, council says it will consider placing restrictive  covenants on future proposals to  ensure they ultimately conform  lo application plans.  Planner Rob Buchan said a  number of proposals in the past  year have been accelerated at  the applicant's request, then  either failed to materialize or  were not constructed "according  to the wishes of council or the  pubh'c."

Langdale elementary  The intermediate pupils had a project 'Sharing a Faire' that took  them oul into Ihe community on a special quest And they discovered  there was a wide variety of expertise in handicrafts and hobbles  among Ihe grown-ups that was not learned in school  The result was a display and demonstration of these in the gym last  Wednesday, March 4.  At the 'Sharing a Faire' (an tint pun) the pupils saw, for example,  pottery making, leather working, wixhI carving nnd turning, stained  glass, and tapestry work They heard about Keats camp They  observed silver smithing, pancake making, cake decorating, model  making, and painting on ceramic. And had hands on experience in  some of the handicrafts.  From Gambier Island came Betty Coo|ier to slum how she spins  angora wool into yam.  The pupils had many questions and hands-on experiences to make  They're sure there's more know-how in the community lhat will lead  lo other 'Sharing a Faires'.

His name is Emie Wood  Not only is he gifted in the art of stained glass, hut  he is also a reservoir of Sunshine Coasl early histo-  ly.  As an avitl liohliyist, Ernie liegin by making  jewelry and doing some silver-smithing. When he  and his wife. Belly, retired lo Davis Bay 16 years  ago, Ernie was then able to have a full-size workshop This enabled lii tit to expand his horizons into  something more challenging. The arl of stained  glass ap|H'aled to him and he began haunting Bull-  winkle's, a stained-glass 'boutique', which was  then located in Sechell.  Studying the work and asking lots of questions,  Ernie was invited by shop owner Hany Smith to  attend classes that were going lo be held in his  garage. So one night a week, for eight weeks, he  began to leant the intricate art of stained glass.  It is more than jusl a hobby, il has become a  craft that requires a good eye, a steady hand, a flair  for creativity, and moil Importantly, mi infinite  amount of patience Emie has mastered all of these  attributes and many of his works are seen locally.  The stained glass windows in St. Joint's United  Church are examples of his talent and imagination  and the love he holds for his church  Ernie begins by drawing most of his own  designs, making a pattern and cutting out every  piece in cardboard. He then cuts the glass to lit Ihe  individual pieces, grinds every edge, and puts copper ta|ie on to the edges  He lays out lite design, spot-welds litem in  place and then liegins the line, intricate soldering  process. The finished product is a handcrafted  example of a true artisan's work.  Next week, I will share with you some of  Ernie's early remembrances of the Sunshine Coasl  dating back lo the early l-MIO's.  Don't forget the community association's annual general meeting March 10; the AIDS workshop  al St. John's United Church March II nnd the  politick supper at the halt March 15 al 6 pm.

Committee chairman Harry Almond,  MLA Gordon Wilson, Murray  Cantelon (IWA). Ken Sneddon  (industry). Dave Bakewell  (RPF). Barry Janyk (outdoor rec  committee) and Paul Jones  (Friends of Caren) were among  those who met with Owen and  forest ministry representatives.  "(Owen's) mandate is to  look at all aspects of the forest  resource and report in a year,"  noted Almond. "He has no mandate for this but he certainly has  support for what we're trying to  do." Almond said he believes a  local forest council will be set  up, operating on its own until  government backing comes.  A recent steering committee  at the Ministry of Forests' Field  Road office attracted about 30  people and brought some constructive ideas to the table, he  said. "We're seeking a council  which will have some authority.  rather than just making recommendations."  Almond's optimism the  council concept will fly is based  on the apparent need for a new  approach in a highly contentious industry. "1 think that  Forestry recognizes there's so  much controversy that they  have to have an independent  body to advise them. It gets  them off the hook."  He stressed that in order to  be credible, however, forest  councils would need representation from all interest groups:  environmental, community,  industry and workers. "Everybody agrees it has to be an independent body representing all  users." With the concept still in  the formative stages, discussion  is currently focused on ironing  out council representation and  terms of reference. "One of the  conflicts is going to be who is  chosen to be on the committtee.  We're trying to represent all ihe  interests without overdoing il."  Almond said it is too early in  the process to get into local  issues.A similar steering committee has been meeting in the  Powell River district. The Sun-  88&-WARM  (HHb-9276)  WED LIKE TO  SHOUT!

Residents say  the  noise  of  . crushers and frunt-end loaders is keeping them awake at  ; night, lane    Seyd    photo  by Stuart Bwntldt  A Sechelt resident heading a drive to quell  gravel pit noise within the municipality has  asked council to continue supporting the  effort.  "There is a petition being circulated that  has been signed hy 100 or so people.' resident  Diana Sheehan told council Wednesda> Each  person who's signed is committed to the  (belief) that their lifestyle has been compromised (by gravel pit noise) "  The noise emanates from a Construction  Aggregates operation on Sechelt Indian Government District (S1GD) land above the  municipality of Sechelt. The company has a  30-year gravel extraction lease from the  SIGD.  Sheehan said her group had even considered legal action against Construction Aggregates. "We've retained a lawyer". Sheehan  told council, "...and we've paid him $600 to  $1,000 to look at (the situation)." She added.  however, that because of the expected overall  Residents consider  taking legal action  cost, it was "doubtful" that her group would  pursue lurther legal action once the lawyer  made his report  Sheehan said the people signing the petition were not trying to have the 24-hour gravel operation closed down hut. rather, wanled  controls placed on noise.  "We think Construction Aggregates, as a  good corporate Citizen, should be aware that  there is a problem and the) should act accordingly," Sheehan said. "And we need to know  lhat (council is in favour) of getting some  kind ol a noise solution."  Mayor Nancy MacLarty. while pointing  out thai Ihe District of Sechell had no real say  in the future of the gravel extraction project,  noted that Construction Aggregates is well  aware ol the problem is paying lor an upcoming town hall meeting March 24 to discuss the  noise situation with concerned citizens.  Representatives Irom ihe company, local  government, and Ihe provincial department ol  Energy, Mines, and Resources will be available to address residents' concerns.  And that's something Sheehan said she's  pleased aboul. "The gravel pit is not a little  thing thai people can live with It has to make  compromises My impression is that Construction Aggregates is willing lo listen."  Said MacLarty "I think Construction  Aggregates is doing as well as they can with  Ihe sound under the circumstances Bul when  you're lying awake at three in the morning  because machinery is rattling, you're not  thinking about jobs or what's happening in  the community.  "It's very frustrating ,., 1 would hope this  isn't going to be a meeting where everyone  just yells at the people from Construction  Aggregates or the Department of Mines."  MacLarty said. She called instead for "well-  reasoned complaints and presentations."  Construction Aggregates hires  consultant to tackle noise problem  byJantSayd  Construction Aggregates sand and gravel operation in Sechell can  be viewed as a successful local industry which provides 45 full-time  jobs in the community.  But for some residents, it can also mean hours of sleepless nights,  filled wilh the sounds of gravel crushers and front-end loaders.  It all depends on where your house is in relation to the pit excavation, the placement of sand and machinery during a given week, and  even which way the wind is blowing.  In response to complaints received by the municipality, the company has hired an engineering consultant to do a noise study, says  Aggregrates superintendent Loren Eve. The consultant will determine  exactly what is causing the problem, which areas of Sechelt are  affected and - most important - what can be done aboul it. So far, it  appears the sound of front-end loaders working around the clock may  be among the worst noise offenders, says Eve.  To date, a new muffler and exhaust system have been put on one  of the loaders to see if it makes a difference. Rubber drapes have  been placed around the primary crusher to try and dampen the noise.  Depending on the engineer's report - expected sometime next  month - it's also likely the company will build a berm of sand around  the outside of the excavation area to try to further muffle the sound.  In addition to the volume of noise, some residents have also complained aboul the unrelenting hours of operation. Currently, Construction Aggregates operates round the clock on a three-shift  rotation to supply market demand for their product. Close to 15,000  tons of gravel is shipped out each day from the Sechelt operation,  says Eve, and the company's target is about 20,000 tons a day.  Meanwhile, residents are growing increasingly frustrated at a lack  of government ability and company willingness to get serious about  the noise problem.  Land for the Aggregrates operation involves leases from the  Crown and the Sechelt Indian Government District (SIGD). In addition, the jurisdictions of the SIGD, Sechelt, the regional district and  the provincial government also overlap on company activities.  Which makes passing the buck that much easier and enforcing  noise bylaws that much harder, says Sechelt mayor Nancy MacLarty.  "Everybody's saying 'It's not my department'."  According to Eric Beresford, district inspector of mines, the Mines  Act can limit the number of hours employees work on each shift, but  not the number of hours a company may operate. Similarly, the act  can limit the decibel levels which workers are exposed to. he says,  "but when noise gets out of a mine site, it's under the bylaws of local  authorities."  The case of Construction Aggregates is somewhat unusual, he says,  because it's often not the residents closest to the pit excavation who  are most affected by the noise.  Also, says MacLarty. "What Is an acceptable decibel level in Vancouver is not necessarily an acceptable decibel level here.

Before  he can make a third circuit, half  the roof collapses in an explosion of sparks, flame and  smoke. The crowd gasps in hor-  r��r' J��,  The fire succumbs to vjr  the hoses. Next day. Doc       Peter  Corey's charred body is  retrieved from the ashes    TrOWer  and   a   closed-coffin  funeral is held. No one can  imagine why the dentist should  have chosen such an outlandish  way to die. No one except  Elmer Rush.  Elmer, working afternoon  shift at the mill, does not witness Doc Corey's incendiary  demise. But he certainly hears  all about it very shortly. He  phones me up the next day and  asks me to meet him. Then he  unburdens himself.  "There's something I have to  tell you, kid, and I'd sure appreciate it if you didn't pass this on  to anyone else. 1 haven't even  told lrma.  "Happened a few days back.  1 got a bit loaded and decided I  wanled to hear some more of  that good jazz. So 1 dropped up  to see Corey. I hadn't been  around there for awhile.  "Now sure Doc was a cokie  and sure he had a few mental  problems, bul there was something else riding him loo. I  should have pegged what it was  before, but 1 didn't. Just call me  dumb.  "Well, things went real fine  at first. We drank wine and dug  the records. He started to talk  like an older brother - real serious. Got on me again about  going back to the music business. Even offered to lend me  money if I needed it to help get  started. He was pretty persistent.  "Then, all of a sudden, old  Corey broke down and started  to cry. It really spooked me. I  asked him what the hell was  wrong.  "Thai's when it all hit the  fan. Corey started babbling  about how he'd been attracted  to men all his life - that he  couldn't help himself. Then he  said he was in love with me.  Just like that. 1 ought to have  seen it coming.  "Well, I told Doc he  was sure as hell barking  up the wrong Iree and I  just walked right out of  there. I could hear him  sobbing about how lonely he was but 1 just kept right on  going.  "Later on I started feeling a  bit sorry for old Doc bul I figured for sure he'd gel over it.  Next thing I hear, he's burned  himself up. That completely  threw me for a loop. And the  worst part is, I think he may  have killed himself over me."  1 don't know what to say.  Not long after the fire, Elmer  quits his job and he and lrma  leave Sully's Cove. 1 don't see  him again for about a year.  One day in the city, I'm  walking by a jazz club when a  poster stops me up short. Elmer  Rush and His Trio it announces  in large block letters.  I go in the place and I recognize that mellow tenor right off  Ihe bat. They are playing a tune  I've never heard before. After  the set is finished, Elmer comes  over to my table.  "By God. you did it!" I say.  "Yessir," says Elmer, ordering a soft drink. "Packed in the  sauce too. lrma was dead  against it at first but now I'm  getting some steady gigs, she's  sort of got used lo the idea. Tell  you, I feel pretty damn good."  "Say, what was that tune you  were playing when I first came  in?"  "I wrote that awhile ago,"  says Elmer, giving me a funny  look. "For old Doc couldn't  help the way he was and, when  you come right down lo it, I  guess it was him got me back  on track.  "I call it Blues for the Bicycle Man."

The harmony was absolute  perfection, a rare treat for those  who love lo hear young voices  singing rousing gospel music.  As well as the high calibre  and discipline of the music, the  choreography was professionally accomplished, in particular,  the use of hands and arms  reaching up to heaven was  impressive.  Prior to their entering the  stage, the young people spent  some time shaking hands with  members of the audience in a  gesture of warmth and friendship, then the program opened  with a solo voice in A Symphony of Praise, gradually joined  by the choir rising to a magnificent crescendo.  There was an entertaining  section when little children  were invited to the stage to join  in the musical celebration.  The concert was sponsored  by the Sunshine Coast Ministerial Association who should be  thanked for bringing such an  event to the faithful on the  Coasl.  13th ANNUAL  'APRIL FOOLS'RUN   i  Gibsons to Sechelt  "For the FUN of it!"
