Array I  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY      82.1  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C  V8V 1X4  owners rush to join Gibsons  by John Moore  "Lorraine's finger" is a finger no longer. The controversial  proposed Gibsons boundary extension, involving two properties  on Payne Road, had been so dubbed by regional Director Charles  Lee because of its projection out into electoral Area E. Last week,  however, in a kind of "land rush" in reverse, Gibsons' council  received requests from at least three more property owners in the  area bounded by Reed, Payne and Henry Roads and Highway I0I  to be included in any extension of Gibsons municipal boundaries.  Council received requests in writing from Mr. Ian J.  Mackenzie, who owns five acres in the area, and from Mr. and  Mrs. Marteddu, who own seventeen acres, at Tuesday night's  council meeting.  Municipal Clerk Jack Copland advised council at the meeting  that he had received a verbal request from Mr. M.A. Lemky, who  owns three-quarters of an acre, and expected it to be confirmed  before the end of the week.  Mr. I.emky's request has been confirmed in writing and the  Coast News has learned that yet another property owner, Mrs. F.  Allard of Vancouver, who owns approximately 1.6 acres, also  intends to petition council for inclusion in the municipality.  At Tuesday night's meeting, council also received copies of  letters from the owners of both properties involved in the original  "fingerlike" extension, Dave Mellor and Ann Robertson. Mellor  and Robertson have appealed separately to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District and to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs to  allow their applications for incorporation to proceed without  interference from the regional board.  Both Mellor and Robertson state in their letters that  competitive agriculture is practically impossible on the Sunshine  Coast, owing to the increasing cost of land-clearing, feed and  supplies, and transportation to and from markets.  Mellor and Robertson also call into question Area E Director  Jim Gurney's statement that their property is "some of the best  agricultural land on the Sunshine Coast", contending that a clay  belt running through both properties continuously leaches water  and nutrients out of the soil.  Both Mellor and Robertson also point to the difficulty of  obtaining water and sewer services from the SCRD. Mrs.  Robertson's submission includes a letter from SCRD Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon offering to supply water to her  property if she will accept water at the present pressure the system  can supply or if she is prepared to install a pressure pump at her  own expense.  In her letter to the Minister of Municipal Affairs Mrs.  Robertson states that she has applied to the SCR D for four and a  half years for water and, though the SCRD water lines run past  her property, she has been advised by the board to seek water from  the Village of Gibsons because the pressure of the regional board  system is not adequate to serve her property.  The sudden spate of applications to join the municipality from  the area in question coincides with an impending application by  Gibsons council to the B.C. Agricultural Land Commission to  have the Agricultural Land Reserve Designation removed from  all land within the municipal boundaries.  The properties in question are designated ALR and fall under  jurisdiction of the SCRD, which has a stated policy of being  opposed in principle to the removal of any lands from the Land  Reserve. On Tuesday night Gibsons council also received copies  of two letters from the SCRD, one addressed to the Minister of  Municipal Affairs, requesting; that the original application of M r.  Mellor and Mrs. Robertson be deferred until the Area E  (Elphinstone) Settlement Plan has been completed, and the other  addressed to the Land Commission requesting that the  Commission "resist any attempt to have these lands removed from  the ALR "  The regional board's letter points out that there is no shortage  of developable land presently within the village. There are  approximately 300 acres of undeveloped land presently within the  village boundaries, an estimated 100 of which are designated  ALR.

(Another picture on Page 13)  Mayor recalls motion  Gibsons reconsiders access route  The regional board's delight at Gibsons choice of Payne Road  as the top-priority access route to the Village from the proposed  Gibsons by-pass may be short-lived. On the strength ofa five-page  memorandum from Municipal Planner Rob Buchan, Mayor  Lorraine Goddard exercised her right Tuesday evening to bring  the motion back to the table for reconsideration.  The Mayor has the right to recall a motion within thirty days if  no action has been taken on that motion. The whole question of  the access route will be re-debated at council's February 16  Planning Meeting.  Buchan's memorandum recommends that Sunnycrest Road be  appointed as the access to the Gibsons by-pass to be constructed  by the Ministry of Highways, and is supported by both the  Executive of the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce, who confirmed  their preference for Sunnycrest Road at their meeting January 28,  1981, and by the Gibsons Community Plan Committee.  Buchan points out that the choice of Payne Road as the "main  gate" to Gibsons will encourage commercial development in the  vicinity of the intersection with Highay 101, within and without  Craigan chief again  Chief Calvin Craigan of the Sechelt Indian Band was returned  by acclamation for a fourth term as chief.

Buchan maintains that, aesthetically and economically, traffic  bound specifically for Gibsons should be routed through the  central business district and not to the extremities of the village.  Revitalization  Gibsons council passed resolutions Tuesday night to  request a start-up ol $5,000 from the Ministry of Municipal  Affairs under the Downtown Revitalization Program.  The purpose of the grant is to assist in the preliminary  studies relative to downtown improvement works,  specifically the preparation of a "streetscape plan" for  Gibsons lower village area.  Council also empowered its staff to negotiate with the  Ministry to set up a grant structure for merchants who wish  to obtain 20% Facade Improvement Grants through the  Program. The Municipal Inspector will administer the  grants in order to ensure that applications conform with the  "West Coast Design" theme approved by council and the  Gibsons Harbour Business Association.  A breakthrough  Gibsons' Mayor Lorraine Goddard hailed as "a real  breakthrough" the news that, beginning this year, the  amount of the unconditional grants to municipalities under  the Revenue Sharing Act will be determined on the basis of  yearly population estimates developed by the Central  Statistics Bureau.  Until now, the Ministry of Finance has used only Census  data, updated every five years as a basis to establish the  amount of such grants.  The new procedure, outlined in a letter from the Ministry  of Municipal Affairs received by council Tuesday evening,  will enable revenue sharing grants to respond more quickly  to municipal population changes.  Gibsons is already feeling the effects of the change, with  this year's grant of SI 71,734 (based partially on a population  of 2,297); an increase of $36,000 over last year.  Feels School Board gave commitment  Aquatic Society explains closure  by John Burnside  Parents of Pender Harbour school children crowded the library  of Madeira Park Elementary School last week to hear the pros  and cons of the dispute between the Pender Aquatic Society and  the School Board of School District No. 46 which led to the  closure by the Aquatic Society of the Pender Harbour swimming  pool and the cessation of all swimming programs.  At issue was the decision of the School Board to withdraw the  sum of $5,000 slated in its provisional budget to go towards  operational costs of the Pender pool. The $5,000, a drop in the  bucket of the School Board's $9.1 million budget, represents 25%  of the operating revenues of the pool.  . Addressing the meeting was Shirley Vader, President of the  Aquatic Society and Pender Harbour School Trustee, Al Lloyd.  Vader told the parents in Madeira Park that there were  educational and political ramifications of the controversy. As a  parent, she said that she was in favour of a comprehensive  swimming program for all children in the area. She argued that  the School Board's expressed concern that all children should be  treated equally in the matter of a swimming program made little  sense. Not only did the location of the Pender Harbour pool in the  ' basement of the Pender Harbour High School make it possible for  students of both the High School and Madeira Park Elementary  School to use the pool without loss of educational time while the  students of Halfmoon Bay and Egmont could use it with very little  loss of educational time, but that facilities in and around Pender  Harbour were much more limited than in other areas of the school  district.  "How can the School Board talk about equal treatment when  they propose to spend $18,000 on Elphinstone's tennis courts yet  withhold $5,000 for a very successful program in Pender  Harbour."  Vader said that teachers in Egmont and Halfmoon Bay told her  the weekly visit to the s wimming pool was one of the highlights of  their students' week. Under the School Board proposal only  students in Grades 3, 5 and 8 would be allowed to use the pool,  which made very little sense in one-room school situations such as  Egmont and Halfmoon Bay.  "There have been no complaints from anywhere in the school  district about the School Board's support of the Pender pool,"  said Vader.  According to the president of the Aquatic Society they had been  led to believe that the School Board had given them a  commitment to contribute $5,000 per annum towards the Pender  Pool. The School Board feels that the commitment was for one  year only as "seed money" and Trustee Lloyd acknowledged that  his search of School Board Minutes had revealed no mention of  an ongoing commitment.  The executives of the Aquatic Society were unanimous,  however, in their conviction that such a commitment had been  given. It was pointed out that the pool had been placed in the  basement of the high school at the suggestion of the School  Board's architect. When the Pender Harbour H igh School burned  down the concept of having the pool on the premises serving as a  reservoir for water to combat fire was approved by all concerned.  Secretary Treasurer Roy Mills had said that the Department of  Education looked favourably on the idea of the swimming pool  under the school.  When the accreditation committee visited the school last year,"  said Vader, "the first thing they were shown was the swimming  pool."  Vader pointed out that the executive of the Aquatic Society had  gone to enormous pains to make sure that their scheduling for the  pool was designed to ensure that school children got top priority.  Trustee Lloyd said that he spoke to the meeting as a school  trustee, as a taxpayer and as an admirer of the work done by the  Pender Aquatic Society. He said that whilst School Board  minutes revealed nothing more than a commitment of $5,000 for  1980, previous trustee for the area Peter Precesky had also been of  the opinion that School Board had given the Society an ongoing  commitment.  Lloyd said the principal concern of the School Board was that  the level of education should be equal in all schools but  acknowledged that it was difficult for students at the north end of  the school district to take trips to Vancouver as well as many other  opportunities open further down.  Vader indicated that she was ready to resign on the issue when  Lloyd suggested the Aquatic Society could raise tht money from  the Regional Board.  "This is a matter of principle," said Vader. "We are all  convinced that a commitment was given. Superintendent John  Denley told me at a meeting 'Get that pool built any way you  can'."  Vader pointed out that Pender Harbour contributes 20% of  local school taxes but has only 10% of the school children.  Trustee Lloyd said that the whole community owed a vote of  Please turn to Page Twenty.  Sechelt's 25th  An anniversary gives one a chance to look over the shoulder to  see how far one has come, gives a chance to re-examine, rediscover.  Sechelt's anniversary is Sunday, February 15th, 25 years since  its incorporation as a village and celebrations are being  undertaken.  Citizens who have been residing in the Village since 1956 and  past and present members of council have received invitations to  attend a Dinner-Dance on Saturday at the Parthenon Restaurant.  A gift of silver maples is to be planted along Teredo Street, as  silver is the symbol for a 25th anniversary.  The Sunshine Coast Arts Centre is celebrating this event with  an exhibit focusing on the first year of Sechelt's incorporation as a  Village���1956. The show opened January 27 and will continue  through to February IS.  The Coast News, along with Sechelt businesses and  organizations have sponsored a commemorative tribute to the  Village's anniversary in a historical and pictorial account of its  growth and development.  The 12-page Tribute will be a keepsake, become a memento and  will be delivered to the community on the day of the celebration'..;  - Jonn TOooiepfiot?

R Sohn  Lyn Fabio  Circulation  Michael Nozinski  Less than her usual Corthrightness  It would almost appear as though  Mayor Lorraine Goddard spoke with less  than her usual forthrightness recently  when she said that the village of Gibsons  would apply to have land in the  agricultural land reserve within village  boundaries taken out because 'it restricts  development'.  Information we have been given  indicates that of the 300 acres of  undeveloped land within village boundaries only 100 acres is within the land  reserve. That leaves 200 acres undeveloped  and unrestricted within the village. With  such a cushion it is hard to see how the  village is being impeded in its development  by the land in the land reserve.  It is almost certainly more than  coincidence that the village's decision to  seek to free their land from the land reserve  has led to a mini-stampede of landowners  with land to sell trying to get into the  village to escape the land freeze.  There should be some investigation by  the Regional Board about complaints of  lack of service which most of the owners  give as reason for their wish to join the  village. These come on the heels of other  recent complaints about Regional Board  staff and questions should be asked.  As for the village, unfortunately the  impression is left that the village is trying to  grow quantitatively rather than qualitatively. With two hundred acres undeveloped inside its boundaries and a  gallant group of Gibsons Harbour  Merchant trying valiantly to revitalize the  Lower Village without much in the way of  aid from the village council, perhaps it is  time for the council to encourage the  village to recollect itself and somehow  utilize its marvellous natural setting to  better advantage. There are those who feel  that there is already more than enough  semi-planned sprawl along the flat at the  top of the hill.  Hydro threatens  This week we have the distinction of  being singled out by B.C. Hydro as being  possibly worthy of their legal attention.  Apparently B.C. Hydro is sensitive to the  suggestion that its highly-paid management personnel had a vested interest in a  continuing scries of giant engineering  projects but it is a simple fact that those  employed by an organization involved in a  steady stream of major projects have a  vested interest in the projects. They do get  paid for their work, don't they? And they  count on their paychequcs coming  regularly just like everyone else, don't  they'.'  Ihe people that work for B.C. Hydro do  their jobs to the best of their ability no  doubt and in the light of the best wisdom at  their command. The argument has been  that B.C. Hydro has in recent years had  little in the way of supervision of the  decision-making process that determines  its actions.  Further, they are led by a man who has  apparently much more enthusiasm for the  export of energy than does the federal  government of Canada. With a continen-  talist for a leader and a seemingly endless  appetite for giant projects regardless of the  long-term results of flooded farmlands and  destroyed Fish habitat, the organization  should come under public scrutiny. It is  simply true that the engineers of B.C.  Hydro have their own financial well-being,  their training, and their leadership  providing an impetus for actions not  adequately scrutinized by any outside  agency.  The government? When was the last  time it said 'no' to B.C. Hydro?  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The SCRD has come out in favour of  the Islands Trust after five Regional  Districts on the coast have indicated  they would like to see the Trust  abolished. The Island Trust was  established in 1974 to govern the Gulf  Islands in Georgia Strait and the  islands in and around Howe Sound.  The basic principle of the Trust is to  protect and preserve the islands and to  establish a community plan for each.  Both Hopkins and the Granthams  Landing areas do not have an adequate  water supply for major fire fighting  purposes according to a report by Fire  Chief Dick Ranninger.  TEN YEARS AGO  The new dining hall at Camp  Elphinstone is under construction. The  cost lor the addition to the YMCA  Camp at Langdale is $500,000. The  new building is designed to blend in  with the environment.  Smokes - cigarettes, cigars will cost  more within the extra tax collecting  range of the Bennett government. The  old 25 pack price was 57$ plus three  cents tax. The new price will be 65t  including the tax.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  An estimated 1100 people milled  around in the Gibsons Elementary  School gymnasium at the Science Fair.  Flash bulbs popped, cameras whirred,  telephones rang and music from stereo  equipment penetrated every corner.  The Fair was deemed a huge success.  Councillor Ben Lang detects affluence in Sechelt. He has asked at least  22 times for someone to do the job of  g ravel I i ng the areas between sidewalks  and roads to make things neat. He has  found casual labour hard to come by.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  During the Sechelt and District  Board ol Trade meeting, the board  went on the record to support local  fishermen in their efforts to restrict  herring fishing in Sechelt Inlet to allow  local boats to have a better opportunity  to make a profit. Larger herring seine  boats have been making enormous  catches and depriving locals of their  fair share.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Mr. J. Mayne states that the letters  patent have been Issued and are  effective February 1 for the incorporation of the Village of Sechelt. An  election of Commissioners will be held  April 21. Mr. J. Mayne has been  appointed Returning Officer for the  election.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Cliff Gray, Harry Smith and John  Cattanach have formed the first  construction company on the Sunshine Coast, called Peninsula Construction. In the words of Mr. Gray,  "We think this area (Gibsons) is just on  the threshold of big things."  Captain Andrew Johnston was  installed as president of Sechelt's  Legion Branch and Eric Inglis, president of Branch 109 in Gibsons.  Cougar tracks have been noted  outside the Indian Residential School  in Sechelt.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Plans for a new High School in  Gibsons and a new Elementary School  at Roberts Creek, drawn by architect  H. Cullerne, were accepted for preliminary consideration.  The Gibsons and District Board of  Trade demanded an immediate survey  of all roads, including the essential link  from Port Mellon to Gibsons as stated  in the letter to the Minister of Public  Works. The letter outlined the hazards  of the road to human life.  Sechelt, about 1920. Properly attired players battle it out on Herbert Whitaker's  grass tennis courts, complete with trestled judges.

Peterson'  Reflections  When Pierre Eliot Trudeau  ) says his prayers each night  these days surely he must give  thanks to the Lord for the High  Commissioner to Canada from  Great Britain.  The embattled Trudeau is  pressing on with his program to  repatriate the Canadian constitution amidst a storm of  protest and indignation on two  continents. Who could have  foreseen that he would be  rescued by the lubricated  remarks of a character who  appears to have stepped onto  the Canadian political stage  from the D'Oyly Carte Opera  Company.  Only Gilbert and Sullivan,  one would have imagined,  could have produced such a  creature bearing such a title.  Had Sir John Ford, High  Commissioner, been a figment  of the minds of Gilbert and  Sullivan he would have taken  an honourable place alongside  Koko the Lord High Executioner or the very model  Major General or the fellow  who polished up the brass to  ease his way to the top of the  British Navy.  But Sir John Ford is not a  creature of light opera. He is a  ranking representative of the  parliament of Great Britain to  this country and if his remarks  to a couple of NDP MP's at  Governor General Schrcyer's  skating party could not have  been better designed to outrage  Canadians and delight Trudeau, then his press conference  a day later put the icing on the  cake.  It has always amazed me  how completely the English can  provide caricatures of themselves but it has been a long  time since such a specimen! as  Sir John Ford came forward  for consideration. I cannot  remember when I last experienced the fresh and instant  anger caused by the tones of  vapid condescension and superiority that such as Sir  John habitually employ. But  the reaction is well-remembered and instantaneous yet  and apparently it is a reaction  shared by many who hear such  utterance as Sir John indulged  in last week. When he replied to  the question as to whether he  had been leaking information  of British opposition he said  that the document under  discussion could not have been  written by an Englishman. In  so doing he not only failed to  answer the question - it is not  necessary to write a document  before you can divulge its  contents   -   but   irritated  all  within media range of his  words.  That such a figure from  England's Imperial past should  appear at just this time in  Canada is better fortune than  the Prime Minister deserves.  Only such as Sir John Ford  could have united a sufficient  number of Canadians behind  Trudeau's repatriation package  to guarantee its success. Now  Trudeau's rhetoric about cutting the umbilical ties of empire  at long last have a flesh and  blood embodiment of all that  was arrogant and insufferable  about the Imperial English to  lend them credibility. The  Prime Minister could not have  asked for more. There he is  taking refuge from problems  that he can't solve in the late  20th Century by addressing  himself to a colonial remnant  of the 19th Century. After  thirteen years of ineptitude in  the management of the affairs  of the nation, Trudeau seeks to  find a place of honour in the  history books as the man who  ended the colonial connection  left over from the hey-day of  the empire.  In the days and weeks to  come, Trudeau will make great  public use of the intervention of  Sir John Ford. Great will be his  public indignation and great  !  rmvifitiiM&8tB��MriilCM&iMmtmm  mwmuat  Love Is More Thicker  Than Forget  love Is more thicker than forget  more thinner than recall  more seldom than a wave Is wet  more frequent than to fall  It Is most mad and moonly  and less it shall unbe  than all ihe sea which only  is deeper than the sea  love Is less always than to win  less never than alive  less bigger than the least begin  less littler than forgive  it Is most sane and sunly  and more It cannot die  than all the sky which only  is higher than the sky  E.E. Cummings  (1940)  aWffiVflMiyiiflWMMittamaW^  No longer  Green with envy*  his private delight. It is incredible good fortune for  Trudeau that just as he is trying  to persuade us to ignore the  dangers and woes of the 20th  Century in favour of a tag-end  left over from the 19th that this  living relic of the 19th Century  should be representing Great  Britain and venting his fatuous  and outdated arrogance in the  capital of Canada.  It may be the boost that the  repatriation program needs to  see it through. There will be a  long and passionate debate in  the House of Commons in  Ottawa. The only time the  Progressive Conservative Party ever manages a united and  passionate front is when they  are sternly debating the distant  past. It lends them a relevance  that otherwise misses them.  After said protracted debate,  with the country bored silly  with the whole business, Trudeau's package will be approved and be sent off to  London. It matters little what  the British parliament does. If  it doesn't pass the bill, Trudeau  will repatriate unilaterally to  great and undeserved applause  and Sir John Ford will deserve  the credit.  Only Gilbert and Sullivan  could do it justice.  by Vem Giesbrecht  Every Wednesday evening at  about 9:45, wheelchairs begin  to appear in the doorway of the  gym where I play volleyball.  The occupants, men in their  20s, 30s and 40s, watch us  crouch and leap and dive for  balls and when we're finished  they wheel out and practise  layups. As I watch them  watching us play, I wonder  what they're thinking and I  marvel at their apparent serenity. Surely they must be  envying our sound legs and  remembering a time when they  too were able to run and jump?  A Grade 12 student in one of  my classes today had full use of  his legs, which was fortunate,  for he lacked arms. He sat on  the floor and gripped his pen  with his toes to write a test on  The Mayor of Casterbridge.  His attitude indicated that his  struggles with self-pity had  basically been resolved and he  was determined to make the  best of his situation.  My excuses for being envious of others have never been  as dramatic as being paralyzed  or lacking some of my limbs  but my battles with envy are of  long standing. Only recently  have 1 achieved any sort of  victory over this deadly foe.  Envy was characterized as  one of the Seven Deadly Sins in  medieval times and today,  several centuries later, millions  of people harbour ill will  toward their apparently more  fortunate fellow men.  Speaking as someone who's  been "green with envy" too  many times, I have some idea of  the misery these envious individuals are experiencing.  There was a time when I  envied just about everyone.  I envied children whose  fathers were alive, I envied  classmates with more money  and nicer clothes, I envied  those who wee self-assured and  popular, I envied the muscular  athletes, the smooth talkers  who didn't blanch at the  prospect of giving a speech in  class...and most of all, I envied  Ed.  I was not alone in my  jealousy of my talented classmate because here was a guy  who had it all���brains, looks,  amazing athlete, ability, popularity, a large and gifted family.  During the 13 years we  attended school together we  were rivals, after a fashion,  particularly in the earlier  grades,  but the rivalry was  laughably one-sided. Only  twice did I get the upper hand;  in Grade 6 when an accident of  geography allowed me to walk  home with the cute girl we both  fancied, and in Grade 7 when I  edged him out for the too  academic award. %  Ironically, it was Ed who  helped me overcome my envy.  Like many of my high school  friends, I had ascribed to Ed  almost magical qualities, considering him gifted in a way the  rest of us could hardly imagine,  but as we grew older I began to  catch glimpses of his ordinariness.  Once when were both working as CN railway porters he  told me how disgusted he was  with certain aspects of his life.  On another occasion he confessed alarm at the quick  passage of time (he had jusf  turned 22). There were setbacks, even failures, in his life,  though for the most part he's  been as successful as we all  thought he would be.  I've gradually come to realize'  what I knew all along but was  too self-centred and immature  to acknowledge, namely that  even the people we envy the  most are beset by many of the  same doubts and fears that we  are.  Sometimes the objects of  envy are worse off than the  folks who envy them, as Edwin  Arlington Robinson illustrated  in his famous poem, "Richard  Cory". Another writer says,  "For every man who sincerely  pities our misfortunes, there  are a thousand who sincerely  hate our success".  I would not presume to say  that I have conquered envy, or,  as Trudeau once boasted abo\it  inflation, "wrestled (it) to the  ground."  Yet it seems that the more  experience I have, the more  people I meet, the less tendency  I have to long for the fortunes  of others or wish myself in their  place.  It's hard enough being one  person without wasting energy  trying to be two so I'm much  better off being myself. Besides  I've never had anyone offer to  change places with me.

They are the "money  makers". I like to see change  and progress, but when it gets  to the point of greed, I feel  angry.  Our house prices and land  costs are being raised to the  level of Vancouver prices. The  majority of people who live  here didn't make this change.  And now one of the oldest  Congratulations, Shirley  Editor:  ' I would like to thank Shirley  Vader for selflessly taking the  right course of action in the  Pender Pool dispute, instead  of taking the easy way out.

It's here now and everywhere in Canada. The rich get  richer and the poor get poorer.

Practically everyone has at  least one double or near-  double wandering the world  somewhere. I am not talking  of twins or siblings but of  quite unrelated people who  spring into being as though  struck from the same genetic  mould. Unless you are a  celebrity holding a look-alike  contest, you will probably  never gel to meet these echoes  of your own image. You will  pursue your separate lives  quite differently, each of you  oblivious to the other's existence. And this is likely  just as well. The too-close  proximity of someone who  looks like your reflection  can lead, at the very least, to  considerable confusion. (The  plot of many a melodrama and  slapstick comedy will bear  witness to this). In extreme  cases, it can land you in a lot  of downright trouble.  I am about eighteen when I  have the first inklings of my  doppclganger's existence. It is  in the Belle Bar Cafe, our newfound hangout on the skid-  road's fringe, where pop-  tunes blare constantly and  many of the street-gangs hold  court. We are new to the place  then and  not yet  accepted.  Some of the young hoods eyed  us with disdain or distrust.  Then, one day, a guy walks in,  comes right over to our booth  and starts talking to me as  though he knew me. Since I  have never seen him before in  my life, I am somewhat disconcerted. Is he some sort of  wiseguy trying to set us up for  a beef? You never know in this  place. I gaze at him blankly.  Suddenly, he stops, looks confused, mutters something  about "dead ringer" and  beetles embarrassedly out  of the cafe.  I wouldn't have given it  another thought (Hell, anyone  can make a mistake) but a few  weeks later, it happens again.  This time it is in a beer-  parlour in the same quarter of  town. And this time, it is a  woman - a hard-as-nails  lady of thirty-five or so, with  a lot of make-up and' a mean  look. She barges right into the  segregated Men's side before  the waiters can stop her  and assails me. "All right, yeu  little bastard!" she spits.  "What the hell have you done  with that money?"  Of course, I have never laid  eyes on her before either and  don't have the vaguest idea  what she is talking about.  The situation is more than  merely embarrassing. Neither  myself nor my friends are of  legal drinking age and the last  thing we want is any attention  directed to the fact.

Whoever  the woman thinks I am,  she is patently angry enough  to commit mayhem. 1 swear I  am going to get my eyes  clawed out at the very least.  Thankfully, one of the waiters  collars her. "Okay, lady, just  calm down. We don't want  any trouble in here. You got  any problems with this guy,  you'd better go settle them  somewhere else."  He ushers her towards the  door, still mouthing imprecations against whomever she  supposes me to be. We take  advantage of the diversion to  hustle out the side exit.  Later, we ascribe it to the fact  that she must have been  drunk or on pills.  Two such incidents in a row  is a bit odd, but they could  easily have been coincidence.  I certainly don't lose any  sleep over them. The third  time, however, is a different  matter that really pulls me up  short.  Strides or draped pants  are the going teenage uniform  in these times. We generally  get them tailored at a place  called On Wo's on Pender  Street. I have just picked up a  new pair and am heading up  Hastings for the bus-stop with  the package under my arm. A  black, unmarked car slides up  to the curb beside me. "Hey  you," barks a voice, "Onion  over here I"  I look around to see if he is  talking to someone else but  there is nobody within range  except a wispy, oblivious old  Chinaman snuffling wanly  along. "You punkl I mean  you I Better get your keister  over here!" The voice means  business.  I walk numbly over to the  black sedan. What the hell do  they want with me? They are  obviously plainclothes cops  but I haven't broken any  laws that I can think of. I  haven't even been drinking.  There are two of them: one,  hawk-nosed and hulking; the  other, fleshy and blonde with  hard, blue eyes. "Get in the  back seat," orders hawk-nose.  "We're going to have a little  talk."  I climb in, knowing enough  not to try arguing with cops.  Blue-eyes throws the idling  oap in gear, roars up the  nearest alley and parks again.  "All right," says hawk-nose.  "What the hell you got in that  package?"  "Just some pants from the  tailors. They're paid for."  "I'll bloody bet!" sneers  blue-eyes. "We got reports  that you've been boosting  around this street for weeks.  Must be pretty strung-out.  How many caps a day you  cranking?"  I have knocked around the  skidroad long enough to get  his drift. "Hey, look, I don't  mess around with that stuff.  That'stheGod'struth."  "Bullshit!" declares hawk-  nose. "You're the same punk  we've been hearing about.  Let's shake him down, Max  and see if he's holding. Okay  you,out of the car."  Hawk-nose frisks me roughly and thoroughly, even  making me take off my shoes  and socks. He is obviously a  man who enjoys his work. I  am, quite frankly, scared  spitless. The corruption-riddled police-force of this period  is not known for kid-glove  treatment of suspects. But I  am also clean as a whistle  and he comes up empty-  handed. "Okay, punk," he  growls frustratedly, "let's see  those arms."  I roll up my sleeves and he  studies my virginal veins in  perplexity. "By Christ, he  don't seem to have any  tracks. Maybe he ain't the  same guy after all."  They confer briefly on the  other side of the car. "Okav,  you can take off," says  blue-eyed Max without apology. "And if I were you,  I'd stay the hell out of this  part of town from now on."  I take his advice quite  literally for a couple of  months. Who needs this sort  of embarrassing and unwarranted harassment?  It is becoming increasingly  apparent that someone who  looks enough like me to  change places is actively  stirring up heat around the  east end. I know nothing  about him beyond the fact that  he is evidently a junkie and a  thief, but he certainly must  exist. I can only hope that he  either cleans up his act or  leaves town. In the meantime,  I resolve to avoid his apparent  haunts as much as possible.  But my doppelganger throws a  long shadow.  To be continued,..

Mercury and  Mars remain in close contact  tempting more rash statements and decisions. Mercury  also turns retrograde (appears  to move backwards) which  often coincides with delays in  short-distance communications, including bus travel and  mail deliveries.  Rebellious Uranus spends  its last few days in Scorpio  (after a seven-year stay) and  prepares to enter Sagittarius.  A disruptive Full Moon  approaches and is likely to  have a strong impact on the  lives of persons born February  19, May 21. August 23 and  November 23.  ARIES (March 21-April  19)  There's vicious back-biting  gossip behind the scenes and  you're the topic of conversation. Seems lonely person  you've ignored now seeks  revenge. Visit this person and  offer explanation before more  rumours spread. Association  with local group continues to  bring contentment and chance  of lasting partnership. Your  concern over someone else's  finances ends soon.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Anticipate an argument  with your best friend or  regular acquaintance. Looks  like your emotional viewpoints  are no longer welcome at  group meetings. Stay clear of  local officials with the power  to squelch your latest long-  range plans. Continued involvement with superior  brings best work-scene opportunities ever. At last loved one  is more reliable and seems  ready to settle down.  GEMINI  (May  21-June  21)  Your recent achievements  are now subject to unfair  criticism. Colleagues seem  envious of your slick style and  rapid rate of advancement.  Avoid confrontation with superior less intelligent than  yourself. Long-distance message confirms success of  speculative or artistic venture.  Unpredictable health upset  begins to fade. May 25  Geminis face further accusations.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Anticipate heated discussion over philosophical or  educational differences. You  are now ready to test theories  of instructor or self-proclaimed expert. Insolent Cancer students may be asked to  leave class. It's another  favourable time to request  funds for home improvement  project or risky real-estate  promotion. Child in your life  soon becomes less disruptive,  more manageable.  LEO(July23-Aug22)  Expect continued mix-ups  over other people's possessions or cash transactions.  There'll be a hasty letter or  phone call to person in charge  of your mortgage, insurance  or tax matters. Meanwhile  conversations with loved one  or business partner prove  optimistic and reassuring.  Prepare to enjoy a more stable  home-base during the next  few years.  VIRGO   (Aug   23-Sept   22)  Relations with close associates become temporarily strained. You'll quibble over  routines and arrangements  which repeatedly back-fire.  Realize work-scene can only  ���**������**���������* ali  become more agreeable as the;  month progresses. On-the-job  romance is also a link to much-  needed funds. Dealings with  neighbour soon become  more predictable. Aug. 23-24  Virgos should brace themselves for next week's disruptive Full Moon influence.  LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 23)  Health or employment matters arc subject to annoyances  and delays. Refuse to be  blamed for co-worker's rushed  assignment. Avoid argument  with lippy nurse or doctor's  assistant. Continue to protect  hands and feet against burns,  sharp instruments. Social  scene is happiest yet; especially for Librans born  Sept. 29-Oct. 7. Financial  outlook appears more settled.  SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)  Social activities, pleasures  and pastimes are spoiled by  petty arguments and poor  timing. Looks like you'll blurt  out some intimate details  during group get-together.  Domestic contentment is restored thanks to quick-thinking  action of solitary acquaintance. Rebellious Uranus prepares lo leave your sign  promising stabler conditions  for   the   next  seven  years.  SAGITTARIUS   (Nov    23    -  Dec 21)  There are upsets and  disagreements where you live.  Household members have  more to complain about than  usual. Escape tension in the  home with prolonged local  trips and visits. Letters and  phone calls continue to announce arrival of new friends  or chance of romance. Chronic  ailment may now clear up  unexpectedly. Sagittarians  born Nov. 25-30 should avoid  commitments linked to real  estate or rental agreements.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19)  Short-distance communications become irritating. Prepare to receive abusive letters  or phone calls. Long-awaited  correspondence fails to arrive.  Delays may be linked to  poorly-maintained vehicles.  Accept gracefully boss's suri  prise gift or invitation to swish  night-spot. Looks like it's time  to say good-bye to rebellious  but well-meaning group of  acquaintances.  AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)  Financial transactions bring  harsh words and misunderstandings. Have patience with  snappy bank tellers and other  assistants handling your cash.  Postpone purchase of small  machine or sharp instruments  till next week. Venus bestows  extra charm and better fortune on Aquarians bom  Jan. 29-31. Career-related  disruptions   become   fewer.  PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)  Mercury retrograde in your  sign coincides with poor  memory, false starts, forgotten appointments and misplaced correspondence. Pisces  persons born Feb. 22-24 lose  tickets, tools, keys and small  personal items. Recent secret  association now yields small  cash dividends. Your unusual  philosophical outlook now  becomes    more   traditional.

Mosl "books of the dead",  like the Tibetan Book or the  Dead, arc designed lo prepare  the reader to face death and the  afterlife with equanimity and a  measure of joy. Not so the  twentieth Century Book of the  Dead.  ;' Elliot is specifically concerned with the phenomenon of  violent mass public death on a  scale only recently achieved by  our species. Violent public  death wasn't invented by  modern man, of course, but in  the 20th century, technology  developed solely for the purpose of inflicting mass death  has made Caesar's wholesale  slaughter of recalcitrant tribes,  ihe horrors of the Inquisition,  the excesses of the French  revolution and the whole of  several million years of human  violence look like a Sunday  outing.  . Elliot points out that in Ihe  past, mass public death was  incidental to vaguer concepts  such as "victory", "glory", even  "conquest". Weapons of war  were designed to achieve  strategic supremacy over other  weapons or armies and the  death of civilians was an  incidental, secondary consequence.  In the 20th century, ihe  murder of soldiers became the  murder of whole populations  and of nations, with technology  in, the van, changing the  equation so radically that now  "victory" as an idea has been  replaced by virtual extinction.  Elliot's book is an attempt lo  chart the change and to introduce some human perspective into mass violent  death, to examine the idea of  individual violent death and lo  analyze what happens to that  idea when it is suddenly  multiplied by a factor of  millions.  -The book is divided into  three parts: "Sketches: People  in Ihe Machines of Death".  "Analyses: Parts of the Machine", "Values: Negative and  Positive". It gets off to a bad  start. The "sketches" of individual deaths in particular  conflicts during this century  read like what they are, fictionalized obituaries meant to  be at once individual and  "typical" of a specific time and  place.  '.Unfortunately, by attempt-'  ing to be typical, to portray the  death of -an "Everyman" in  certain circumstances, the  sketches become a sequence of  somewhat over-written movie  death scenes, followed by  Elliot's attempt to relate the  individual death to the statistics of the overall conflict.  The attempt fails in part  because, as a script-writer,  Elliot is a hack, but even the  mass of statistics, which enumerate the varieties and circumstances of deaths, never,  become any more meaningful  "i-THE-  IpriU,  Jhoppe  m a ^ *  |Kf SPECIAL TO  WFOR YOUR g  5*'VALENTINE  Drop in  ;*5�� and see what we ��*j  fhave marked at xgl!  10% - 50% H  1.SAVINGS.1  WJan. 28 to Feb. 14 M  than "body counts" from the  war in Vietnam.  Elliot is a statistician who  has worked in business and  market research. His statistics  are impressive, but they no  more express the true horror of  mass violent death in this  century than a IS minute  documentary captures the  reality of the Na/i death-  camps.  The second part of the book,  the "analyses", is a more interesting and thought provoking philosophical look al  mass violence, at science, myth,  morality and religion. It is by  no means a complete and  thorough treatment of the  subject, but it is a significant  step down a path we arc all  obliged, to some extent, to  follow.  Elliot points out in his  introduction that the single  most significant characteristic  of the history of this century  will very likely be mass death,  public and violent, on an  unprecedented scale. He argues  simply that if we are to come to  any understanding of ourselves  and the times in which we live,  we can hardly ignore this single  largest variable in the equation.

Murray's work will be on display at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre, along with the watercolours of Galiano Island artist Shari Street, from February  17 to March 8.  Sculpture and watercolours  "A Gallery o/ Kitchen Gadgets & Accessories"  WTCHEM  GflRMVflL  Handmade  Wine Glaaaea  "Chateau  Reg. HO.98 ea.  Valentine Special  atoms."  Upcoming at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt,  Feb. 17 - March 8, will be a  showing of artwork by two  women, Jaqueline Murray and  Shari Street. Both are primarily dealing with form and  both manage to easily relate to  the viewer.  Jaqueline Murray presently  hails from Vancouver, though  she is familiar with the Sunshine Coast, having lived in our  area for some time. She now  works out of the Emily Carr  College of Art with its excellent  facilities for bronze and marble  sculpture, which has proved  most conducive to the ideas she  wishes to carry out.  Both bronze and marble arc  very heavy materials but Jaqueline endows them with  qualities and characatcr not  common to their consistency.  One of her most effecative  pieces is what looks to be a  slightly deflated vinyl inner-  tube. One has to actually touch  the piece lo be convinced that it  is not vinyl and not full of air.  that in fact it is a solid piece of  marble weighing close to five  hundred pounds. It is this play  of character with consistency,  plus an often surprising sense  of balance which gives much  appeal to her work.  Jaqueline studied art and  sculpture at a number of B.C.  schools and worked for two  years with sculptor, Prudence  Leach. She has been exhibiting  in Vancouver since 1976 including Presentation House,  Helen Pitt.Gallery and most  recently with the B.C. Society  of Sculptors exhibition at  Robson Square, where she was  singled out for her originality.  Shari Street has lived on  Galiano Island for ten years  working and exhibiting as a  colour photographer and fine  woodworker. In recent years,  energies have gone into her  sensitive watercolour paintings.  Composition and handling  of colour arc her most im-i  portant considerations. We are  presenled with flowing, somewhat abstract images, yet the  forms arc easily recognizable to  us, ones which are involved  with our everyday life on the  coast. Colours arc a delicate  and subdued blending of tones  selected from a palette of seven  colours.  Shari's education is extensive, having been received in  Canada, USA and Europe. In  the last year, she has exhibited  all across the province including the Paperworks Gallery  and Rembrandt Gallery in  Vancouver, Prince George Art  Gallery and Worthington Art  Gallery in Nelson.  Opening night is Monday  February 16, 8-10 pm. and  everyone is welcome to meet  the artists and join others  interested or just curious.  Refreshments are served. This  exhibit is usre to please and  continues to March 8.  Suncoast Players to  sponsor drama students  Subsequent to the recent  success of Suncoast Players'  presentation of "Arsenic &  Old Lace", the Society's  Executive decided unanimously to sponsor at least two  Coast students at the Capilano  College acting course being  conducted in Sechelt by Dana  Still.  Both Pender Secondary and  Elphinstone schools were canvassed. The sole candidate  from Pender, recommended  by teacher Joe Harrison, was  unable to find transportation  to and from the one-night-a-  week course.  Two students  from Elphinstone, Donard  MacKenzie and Brian Beard,  both recommended by drama  teacher Judith Wilson, accepted the honour. Both  live in the south end of the  Sunshine Coast.  The course will last 15  weeks, taking students  through a compressed curriculum from first basics to onstage presentation. It is being  held Wednesday evenings,  7:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m.  at the Capilano, , College  Centre. 15 students have enrolled to date. The fee is  $60 per student.

In Memoriam  A painting of dogwoods by  Roberts Creek artist Kay Wells  was presented to St. Mary's  Hospital last Wednesday in  memory of Gwen Hicks by  members of New Horizons and  her friends on the Sunshine  Coast. Mrs. Hicks was a  longtime resident of Metcalfe  Road and an active member of  the community until sufferinga  stroke last summer and her  death in November.  Be My Valentine  Valentine's Day at the Legion this Saturday promises an  evening of "hearty" entertainment. A few unsuspecting  "volunteers" have been recruited for the kissing booth  but not doubt it will prove so  popular that everybody will  want to get in on the act. Cupid  is scheduled to make a gucsl  appearance and you might be  able to wangle a lace garter  from a sexy young lady (for a  small price, of course).  Steve Hubert and Lome  Jones will be providing live  music. Lome will also be there  on Friday night.

Fat Choy  Last Thursday marked the  beginning of the year of the  rooster and the year 4679 on  the Chinese calendar but it's  not too late to wish you a  Happy New Year���the Chinese  celebrate for a month. And  you're not supposed to wash  you hair all that time so you  don't wash away all the good  luck. Gung hay fat choy (good  luck!).  Meals on wheels  Can you spare a couple of  hours once a week as a  volunteer driver for Meals  on Wheels and help get this  new venture off the ground?  It's not so long ago that  elderly people on the Sunshine  Coast who were no longer  able to look after themselves  satisfactorily were sent off to  institutions like Riverview,  but now thanks to the dedication of groups such as the  Kiwanis and the Resource  Society, we have a Home-  makers' service which allows  people to stay happily in their  own homes as long as possible  and when they'need a smaller  home, or more help, there is  Senior Citizens' housing and  the Kiwanis Intermediate  Care Home. Now another  volunteer group under'the  auspices of the Resource  Society is organizing a Meals  on Wheels service for those  for whom cooking for themselves has become a burden.  Both the Resource Society  and the Village of Gibsons  have made donations of $1,000  to help with start-up expenses, the cost of containers,  etc. and it is hoped to begin  the distribution of a hot midday meal on March 9.  The meals will be cooked by  the staff at the Intermediate  Care Home, an extension of  the service, served to residents and initially will be  offered three days per week,  Mondays, Wednesdays and  Fridays to those living in the  Gibsons' area between Langdale and the Roberts Creek  Post Office. Meals will consist  Remember  Your  Sweetheart  on  ��� Roses & Gifts  ��� Cut flowers  ��� Fresh flower arrangements  ��� Green & flowering plants  ���k A day's notice for Out-of-Town orders.

It is hoped to be  able to subsidize the cost  eventually, but that will  depend on how successful  the venture is and how  much support and financial  backing is received from the  community.  Government grants are a-  vailable for this sort of project  after a community has shown  it can support the programme  successfully for a minimum  three month period.  Linda Reeves, co-ordinator  for the project, says she needs  25-30 drivers so that each one  need only work one day per  week and has so far ten  volunteers. Help will also be  needed in the Kiwanis Home  on those days to expedite  distribution.  If you can help this worthwhile service, phone Linda at  886-7880 or the Resource  Society at 885-5881.  If you just don't have any  spare time, please make a  donation, the postal address is  Box 1096, Sechelt and be sure  to note that it is for Meals on  Wheels. -rhete are some  25 people eagerly looking  forward to this service and if  you'd like to be one of them,  phone Linda at 886-7880 and  get your name on the list.

After an extended and most  ; uncomfortable rest, Ron's face  will be good to see in town  ; next week.  I would like to thank the  "Kush" for substituting and  ' giving me a break last week.  It wasn't as though I needed  ���:<he break; 1 just didn't have  anything to say.  X   I  don't  usually   use   this  ;-ypace for commentary, but  Ron's writing style has made  :' me bold and I would like to  comment on the Friday night  movie Kent State on Channel  Six. It told the true story of the  killing of four and the wound'  ing of nine students at Kent  State University at Kent,  Ohio, about ten years ago.  The students were non-  violently protesting the Vietnam war and the National  Guard (U.S. Army dealing  with internal affairs) was  brought in to enforce an  anti-rioting act. I only caught  the last twenty minutes; I was  called to work Friday night,  but those were the heavy  minutes.  Here's the point! My older  sister attended Kent State  University. At the time of the  shooting I was settling into a  new country, Canada; you  know why. My younger  brother, Dave, was in the  National Guard because he  didn't want to serve in active  duty   in   Vietnam   and   was  involved in weapons dispatching at the Armory in  Akron, thirty miles from Kent.  Just imagine my parents'  dismay at an almost ironical  turn of events as my father  was initially in favour of the  Vietnam war. In fact, when I  opted for Canada he very  strongly, with love, urged me  against it. I might add that he  has since told me that I did  make the right decision in the  end, but that I didn't know  what 1 was doing when I did  it. I will also add that for the  most part he was right.

Life in the inter-tidal zones  Drafting course  for home redesign  With the soaring interest  rates of today, many people  are turning to renovations of  their existing home rather  than purchasing a new house.  Capilano College is offering a  practical introduction to the  drafting skills required in  redesigning your house space.  Whether you are planning a  new kitchen layout, or adding  a bathroom, this skill will  enable  you   to  provide   an  architect or contractor with a  concrete blueprint of your  ideas.  Participants should bring  pencils, paper, ruler, T-square  and lunch. The course is from  9 to 4 p.m, each day at the  Sechelt Learning Centre, Inlet  Avenue. The fee is $30.00.  Please preregister at the  Centre 12:30 to 7:00 p.m.,  Monday to Friday, or call  885-9310.  Ilallmoon  I5a\   llamit  Do you know the difference  between a Green Burrowing  Anenome and a Rockweed  Isopod? How many varieties  of Nudibranch can you identify? You'll get a chance to  brush up on the identity of  such local marine life at the  Seashore course on the Sechelt Peninsula, offered February 17 at Capilano College'.  The course is taught by a  local resident biologist, Marilyn Tentchoff. The course  emphasizes the diversity of  plant and animal life of the  Peninsula intertidal areas.  The concept of zonation  (high, medium and low tidal  zones), will be introduced,  with material on the interaction that takes place between the physical landscape  and the biological conditions  of the seashore.

This means that you  arrive wearing all your old  tattered clothing, which will  no doubt be a popular idea  with some of our men who  hate having to get out of their  old gardening togs and change  into the collar and tie thing.  Happy hour will be from 6:30  to 7:30 when dinner will be  served. Dancing will follow to  the music of Paul Hansen.  This will be one of those  nights when you bring your  own dishes and cutlery as well  as your own refreshments.  This will save a big wash-up  job having to be done later.  Tickets are now available to  members and guests at five  dollars each and may be  obtained by calling either Flo  Hill at 885-3187 or Ruth at  885-2418. It would be a good  idea to get your tickets now  as numbers are limited and  you will be sorry if you are left  out.  There had been an element  of doubt as to the future of  social functions at the hall  due to the lack of support of  members participating in the  planning and the work for  these evenings, but a meeting  of all lady members was called  for the Sunday afternoon of  February 1st and it was most  gratifying to see seventeen  women turn up, all of whom  were more than willing to lend  a hand.

I was asked to mention in  the column that the library at  the hall is going along well  and to remind residents that  they can avail themselves oi  use of the library at any time  the hall is open, which is on  Monday mornings from 10 to  11, Monday afternoon from  1 to 3, Tuesday, Wednesday  and Thursday evenings from  7:30 till 9:30.  ��� Also, if anyone is interested  in making use of the hall on a  Sunday afternoon for a game  of cards or shuffleboard or  whatever, you could give  Grace Rutherford a call and  she will be happy to discuss  it with you. The suggestion  was also submitted that the  hall should be open at all  times, so that people could  take their friends there for  an afternoon or evening. This  would be a great thing if it  were only possible, but the  sad truth is that vandalism  does exist.  Successful Dances.  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Society held a very  successful dance en Saturday  of January 31st aad although  the hall was not filled to  capacity a really good time  was had by all. The always  popular Paul Hansen provided  the music, while the food was  delicious. An appeal is being  made for the young and old to  help clear up the rocks at the  Recreation Park to prepare it  for seeding. The more willing  hands, the better.  Rabble Burns Night at the  Legion also proved to be a  great success and the Legion  Pipe Band is to be commended  for putting on such a fine  show. Throughout the evening  they were joined by the Pipe  Band from Powell River as  well as some guest pipers  from Washington State. The  wee lasses who did the  Highland Dancing were great  too, as was the dinner,  complete with the haggis.  Heard a fellow on the radio  the other day explain just what  a haggis is. He said it was  really a set of dead bagpipes I  Winter Tans.  There are some enviable  suntans around the area right  now.

This is the person  H ho takes over al nine in the  morning and is the parent  surrogate for the most vital  hours of the school day.  I his is the person who helps a  I hild lo learn, to make de-  cislons, who sets the stage  lor the development of the  ��� hild's self-image as he moves  about among his peers and the  authority figures of the world  of school, nol excluding the  janitor and bus drivers.  Education, to me, is that thing  that goes on in the interaction  between pupil, teacher and  parents. Il should be essentially simple, rewarding and  self-fulfilling.  Yet under our system  which has developed over  many years, entirely without  public questioning, this very  important person is the  low man on a very tall totem  pole; indeed the totem pole  seems to have taken root and  is branching daily. Every year,  the classroom teacher is being  given more "assistance" and  supervision with the result  that he (or she) is being more  and more patronized, criticized, analyzed and demoralized. Society has forged chains  of command that assume that  (he classroom teacher is not  quite competent; that this  worker must be watched,  prompted,  inspected,  assist  ed, discussed, dominated in  many subtle ways and transferred when the powers that  confer decide the time has  come. Indeed, entire prospering industries are coining  money, based entirely on the  shortcomings (or imagined  shortcomings) of the classroom teachers. Kits are  offered for remediation; all  sorts of devices to test and  remedy the deficiencies of the  classroom teacher are on the  market and are displayed in  the inevitable plastic cases at  every workshop and convention.  When teachers deny that  they are merit rated, I always  remind them of their principals; super-persons, who  once were lowly classroom  teachers but who rose from  the ranks to make It to a  position of power over their  former colleagues. Principals  have to be personable and  Ihey have to conduct themselves in such a way as not to  offend Iheir Code of Ethics,  especially the clause that  reads: The teacher avoids  derogatory criticism of an  associate except when it is  made to the associate or to  appropriate officials and then  only after the associate has  been informed of the nature  of the criticsm. There is a  big gap between theory and  practice.  When a person accepts a  "teaching position" he (she)  knows full well that his (her)  philosophy and teaching methodology and classroom  management mast conform to  BONNIEBROOK  INDUSTRIES  LTD.  ��� Government approved, I  locally manufactured,  reinforced precast 650 & 750 Gal.

This workship is appropriate for anyone  who must organize information.  The course will not deal with microfiche.  Instructor: Janet Morris  those of this powerful colleague, the principal of the  school, who will assign the  grade, the pupils, write  reports on his (her) work, edit  the reports to parents, confer  with superiors about the  teacher, speak for the "staff"  at parent conferences, call  staff meetings, instruct teachers in their duties, manage  supplies, assign supervision,  suggest in-service, et cetera  ad infinitum.  Some teacher-principal relationships are very good and  some are shockingly bad. Be  that as it may, the educational  system is top heavy with  hordes of other experts who  have risen from the ranks.  How strange! The better one  performs as a classroom  teacher, the sooner one will  not have to teach at all. One  becomes a consultant, a  director, a supervisor, or,  glory of glories, a superintendent of schools, who  oversees entire hierarchies  and travels off to confer with  fellow bureaucrats to exchange views and to garner  arguments in favour of expanding district "services".  Taj Mahals to house all these  non-teaching teachers are  rising all over the province.  They are all busy, busy,  busy overseeing, "supporting" their colleagues trapped  in the classrooms with kids,  poor devils!  Criticism of our school  system is too often taken to  be criticism of individuals,  which it is not. Administrators  are trapped in the same  system as the classroom  teachers and from inside the  vast maze it is impossible to  see the light. Many of them  feel the stress of the system.  The cost of education is  rising sharply. It is difficult  to see any improvement at  the classroom level in either  working or learning conditions. Class size is still an  issue - yet we have all these  master teachers relieved of  their classes and running  around applying programs  which are, at best, educational bandaids. Does it  make sense? Who is redundant? Is reform possible?  Or should we close down the  entire system for a period of  time and re-vamp it from the  kindergarten up? If we don't,  it may self-destruct under its  own weight I  PM  ��� , a o!'~"nn-   \'n^ss\ ���������.*>  '>""��WWmi> >i��mi/>"'>>H��H/l>"��W/nrr^  Convert your old  Wooden Windows to  3)  Double Glazed  Aluminum Windows  with ��' Airspace  886-7359  One-time Pender Principal Frances Fleming was invited to address the Madeira Park Parent's  Auxiliary last week.

To wind up our session, the  whole class went on an overnight camping trip at Chatterbox Falls at the head of  Princess Louisa inlet. The place  hasn't changed much, but our  attitudes have undergone tremendous changes since the last  time we were there.

Saturday, Phillip (Opie)  Oppenheim came and gave us  more instruction in Native Art.  He is really a master at his work  and we learned much from him.  All of us think he's the greatest.  It's really amazing how much  we've all grown from our  N.E.S. experience. During our  last dinner on Monday, we  realized we were saying goodbye to each other.

I It may be that learning to  swim is nol considered by  some an educational exercise,  or at best not very important,  but I suspect the School  Board's stumbling block in  this debacle is policy. Policy  which, loosely translated,  ensures the students at all  schools in the District equal  opportunity, hence the decision to fund swimming instruction at Pender this year  for children in Grades 3-5-8  only, in line with the swimming programme offered  schools which use the Gibsons'pool.  : Now, no one thinks it's  wrong to formulate policy,  obviously without some system the Board is at the mercy  of every wind which blows.  A weak School Board with no  sense of direction is not in  the best interests of anyone  and of course when you have  all those neat policies in  place, then it's simpler to keep  them - or why have a policy at  all.  Similarly no one underestimates the difficulties of  balancing budgets, trying to  keep costs down and still  provide the schools with the  help they need to give our  children as good a start as  possible before they set out in  the world.  ' I have, though, been a little  disturbed by a feeling that  some members of the Board  resent pressure from parents.  "I won't vote for the motion  unless both schools benefit  because I don't think pressure  groups should be rewarded" a  trustee remarked recently on  another matter. Fair enough,  but it was equating of the  parents' legitimate and sincere concern for their child-  rens' welfare with a pressure  group which bothered me. I  fell those parents should have  been complimented; their  concern had brought help to  children in another school  whose parents apparently  didn't care enough to bring  the matter to the attention of  the Board. Just where do we  draw the line, if one should be  drawn, between expressed  concern or dissatisfaction and  a pressure group?  I can't help but wonder if  some sort of obstinacy, a  resistance to even appearing  to give in to pressure, has not  played a part in the School  Board's attitude.  There are always difficulties  with policy. You cannot  legislate for all eventualities  and the real world, particularly where children are  concerned, does not conform  to the neat and tidy arrangements so dear to the hearts of  bureaucrats and all those who  wield power.  The swimming policy for  Grades 3-5-8 which is satisfactory for the larger elementary schools will mean that  only 3-4 children in the  Egmont and Halfmoon Bay  schools are eligible, where the  whole school enjoyed swimming instruction last year.  So what do we have now?  As the result of a misunderstanding, a community up in  arms feeling they have been  double-crossed and no swimming instruction for the  Pender Harbour and area  children. A fine facility for  which the community not only  worked hard, but which has  operated in the black, due to  the loyalty and devotion of  many volunteers, is lying idle  and unused because the  School Board thinks it isn't  fair for all children at Pender  Harbour to have swimming  lessons which aren't available  to all children in Gibsons.  Are we really that small? I  doubt it.  So, now we have no one  swimming at Pender - it just  doesn't make sense!  As if to underline the  stupidity of adult inflexibility,  21 children from Pender came  lo Gibsons for their first joint  swim meet ten days ago.  There were 38 competitors  altogether between the ages of  seven and 16 and a great time  was had by all.  There were heats and finals  in three categories, front and  back crawl and breast stroke,  kids churning up a storm in  four lanes and their team  mates cheering them on from  Ihe edge. There was a lot of  good fellowship, good sportsmanship and just good fun for  everyone and Elphinstone's  Cable 10 TV crew was on hand  so you can see "for yourself  what a good time it was  tonight on Cable 10 in Gibsons  and Thursday night in Sechelt.  Whatever you may think  about competitive swimming  it does encourage all-out effort  to attain excellence and provides for a lot of children the  all-important rewards for that  effort.  This is something very  important in the teaching  process. Obviously we're not  going to deprive the Pender  Harbour children of such  opportunities and this whole  silly business will get sorted  out.  Unfortunately, I can't tell  you what the School Board's  deliberations were and what  soul searching led up to their  decision, I asked to attend the  meeting, but was refused permission. I was frankly surprised by their stand because  it had seemed at the previous  meeting that Trustee  Lloyd  - John Burnside photo.  The cameraman from BCTV films two youngsters peering  through the door of the Pender Harbour Pool last week. The  television crew were filming a news feature on the closing of the  Pender Pool because of a dispute between the Pender Aquatic  Society and the School Board.  Female role  Capilano College is offering  a course entitled The Role of  the Female In Representative  Animal Species. This course is  of interest to anyone with a  bent for biology, or anthropology. As well, anyone exploring Women's Studies  would find this course a good  basic resource.  One argument against women  seeking equality in our society,  is that women's role is determined by biology alone, so that  women taking on any role  outside of the maternal- nurturing one is impossible in any  case. This course explores this  question by completing a  survey of male/female roles in  several animal species (including humans), to see if there  is a specific biological role  indicated for females. Through  its survey of different species it  is revealed that roles are not  necessarily classified as male or  female.  The instructor for this course  is Marilyn Tentchoff, who has  a strong background in both  biological and anthropological  fields. The course will begin  Monday, February 2nd, at the  Sechelt Learning Centre, 7-9  p.m. The fee is $35 for six  sessions. Preregistration is  required. Please call 885-9310  to register or for more information.  had offered a solution which  would have avoided this  impasse and the understandable bitterness in Pender  Harbour and still left the  School Board with its self-  respect intact. It was that,  because there had been a  breakdown in communications  between the Board and the  Aquatic Society and, without  assessing blame to anyone,  the Board would agree to fund  the same school swimming  programme for 1981 with a  grant of $5,000, with the  proviso that this grant is for  this year only and the promise  that by October 1981 an  agreement satisfactory to both  sides would be worked out.

Do you really like kissing  someone with yukky brown teeth? Do bleeding gums bring out a  veritable Dracula passion in you? This, o! course is Ihe week where  we lorgel past differences with our loved ones. On Saturday we can  all cuddle up and be cosy bul if Cupid brings you a box ol chocolates  you'd better get down on your bended knees and say a little prayer  to Saint Appolonia. February 9th is the day that we celebrate the  Feast Day ol Saint Appolonia, patron Saint of dentisls. Now I'm nol  sure whether it's the dentists who pray to her or the people who have  to visit the dentists, bul a little prayer from either side shouldn't hurl.  I'm sure that just once a year nol even a dentist would begi udge you  a box of chocolates from your lover even though they are "dentally  unacceptable" as long as immediately you've downed them you rush  ofl lo your nearest toothbrush and spool of floss and really zap your  teeth back to purity.  Perhaps in the interests of nol getting too cosy with your friendly  neighbourhood dentist you could celebrate Saint Appolonia's feast  with goodies that are acceptable dentally. That doesn't include iced  cakes or ice cream sodas or even raisins, but she winks an eye at  pretzels and popcorn. She'll shudder if you pack the baby off to bed  with a bottle if it's over a year old or if you plaster honey on its  pacifier. She will, however shine with a pearly glow if you eat meat  and muffins, salads and sunflower seeds, crackers and coleslaw. The  Canadian Dental Association says you can satiate yourself on white  milk, plain yogurt, plain whole grain or enriched breads, meat,  poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, peanut butter, hot dogs, hamburgers,  pizzas, raw fruits and vegetables, devilled eggs, peanuts, pistachios  and mixed nuts, pumpkin and sesame seeds. Not so bad, eh!  If you have a yen for chocolate milk, sweetened yogurt, sherbert,  or milk puddings, eat them along with your main meal. And if you just  have to snack and can't face fresh fruit, try french fries.potato chips  or sugarless gum.  Smile folks and show off your pearlies. Saint Appolonia will cast  her blessings upon you, and with a smile like the one you're going to  have, Saint Valentine will see that every heart in the neighbourhood  is fluttering.

Rory Walker accounted  for two of these goals with  Terry Brackett picking up the  other. Chris Charleton (also a  defenseman) opened the scoring in the game in the first  period for the Flames.  Ranger tallies came from  Richard Lovelle, John Bluger  and Robbie Williams. Williams assisted on the other two  Ranger goals. Ranger goalie,  Lawrence Borley, was brilliant  in nets, making spectacular  saves throughout the game  with the southpaw's catching  hand doing most of the work.  Borley forced Flames' forwards to shoot wide or into  his big leg pads on several  occasions due to his fine  positioning.

V3K5X7  Typical volleyball net action  Men play round  robin volleyball  For the pasl two weeks the  men's volleyball league has  begun a series of round robin  tournaments. Each of the 4  teams rotate on a game to game  basis creating at least 2 match  ups a night and possibly 3  depending on the length of  games. The offenses are all  show ing signs of improvement.  During the first Robin on the  26th of January, the Gibson's  Building Supply "Spikes" and  Macleod's Hawkeyes tied with  4 wins and I loss apiece while  the Cedars Sailors suffered  with only 2 wins and 3 losses  and Roberts Creek were stomped (I and 5.  In last week's action Cedar  Sailors improved by winning 4  and losing only I to the Spikes.  The Spikes, while short handed  managed 2 wins with 3 losses.  Macleods Hawkeyes remained  fairly steady by a 3 and 2 finish  and finally the great guest  appearance of the Elphi Girls  who won I and lost 4.  Plagued by a much higher  net. 8 ft. as opposed to their  regular 7 ft. the girls battled it  out in every match always  scoring very high in all of their  games.  Next Monday night at Elphi  Gym the Round Robins will  continue from 8:00 to 10:00.  Spectators are welcome.

The employees of  C.F.P., Port Mellon Division,  are busily vying for the  championship and this weekend will come up with a  winner to carry their banner  to Prince George.  Guests are always welcome  to visit the Gibsons Winter  Club to watch these interesting games and cheer on their  favourites.  Please mark your calendars  for April 1, 1981, for the  General Meeting. We have  been most successful these  past years and should be  proud of ourselves, but our  club is only as good as the  people involved, so please  remember to attend.  Our Club as a group, plus  many personal members, are  very saddened by the death of  our co-worker and friend,  Mr. John Gaw. Mr. Gaw  (and his wife) have donated  many, many pleasant hours to  our club. In the past few  months we have worried  about his health, but not  accepted the fact that it was  weakening. Worry and  accept are so far apart - even  the letters starting each word  are at different ends of the  alphabet - and now we must  learn to accept. He will be  sadly missed and our sympathy goes to his remaining  family.  Good Curling!  Cougars prepare  for playoffs  On Thursday at 6:30 this  year's Senior Boys' Basketball  team is challenging last year's  team. This is in preparation  for the play-offs coming up.  The game should prove to be  an exciting one with this  year's team in good shape and  playing basketball regularly.  On the other hand last  year's team is spread out from  Gold River and Vancouver to  Gibsons and haven't played  together for quite a while. Last  year's team is definitely  going to be the shorter  team but with that old Cougar  spirit will do their best to try  to defeat this year's team.  See you at the game and good  luck to both teams.  Stompers romp  by Stomperman  Suncoast Stompers romped  to a 7-3 victory over Sechelt  United in local soccer action at  Hackett Park Sunday. Scores  for Stompers were: Al Nicker-  son with a hat trick and Rory  Walker, Booboo Goeson,  Mark Lyden and Bill Allen  with one each.  United had goals from  Stuart Craigan, Brian Evans  and Hubert Joe.  The win leaves the Sechelt  Chiefs with only a slim  mathematical chance of  catching the Stompers for first  place in the Sunshine Coast  Senior Soccer League.  From the Fairway  by Emle Hume  An unusually busy time has  been enjoyed at the golf  course, due to the sunny and  warm days that blessed us in  the past few weeks. Most  unusual is the necessity of  having to cut the grass on the  fairways so early in the year.  Next week should produce  the teams that have earned  the right to participate in the  play-offs. Who the winning  team will be has aroused a  lot of conjecture and interest.  However, the first trophy  winners for 1981 should be  known and congratulated  shortly.  Great news was received  from our local RCMP detachment, who have been successful in recovering our wooden  flying eagle that graced the  entrance to the golf course and  disappeared some time ago. It  is to be repaired by our  talented Dick Marsh and once  again take its place at the  entrance way. The golf club  owes Dick Marsh a trenen-  dous vote of thanks for the  many projects he has :om-  pleted and donated to the  club over the years.  Last January 25th, a longtime and active member of the  golf club completed an extraordinary feat. Playing at the  eighth hole. Ed Laidlaw  canned his tee shot for his  third hole in one. What makes  this accomplishment so newsworthy is the fact that he has  now aced every par 3 hole on  the golf course. I would  venture to say that this  unusual   feat   has   not   been  duplicated too often, if ever,  on many golf courses.  Again, it has been noted  that a lot of ball marks are  being left unattended to on the  greens. Our greens have come  through the winter months in  good condition and according  to Art Park they are fast but  soft. So, golfers, repair your  ball marks and divots so we all  may enjoy pleasant and excellent playing conditions.

Perhaps it was the common  bond of poverty that most of us  shared, or it could have been  that, during desperate times  such as we were undergoing in  those Hungry ION, the old  tribal instincts come to the fore  and we humans have a tendency to huddle closer together for  our own mutual protection.  However, whatever it was,  when the deadline for our  leaving, which had been set for  June 30th ,1931 came, both  Mogens and I had had several  offers of work and, in his case, a  deal had been made with  MacKinnon, the owner of the  sawmill, to clear some 20 acres  on a farm which he (MacKinnon) owned about four miles  north of the village. The  contract called for the small  second growth to be cut, the  stumps pulled and the whole  area burned off so that the land  would be ready for ploughing,  for which the Dane was to  receive a cash sum of $500. He  was also to become the possessor of the team of horses that he  had used in the process.  1 hadn't as yet committed  myself to anything on a long-  term basis, although I had  agreed to help our next door  neighbour, Archie MacRae,  with the haying and, in fact,  was staying with him and his  family injhc meantime. I knew  that they were, like many of the  other farmers around, as poor  as the proverbial church mice,  but they shared what they had  and at least I had a camp cot up  in the attic and three square  meals a day which, viewed in a  practical light, was far better  than being battered around on  the freight trains and in many  cases not only going hungry,'  but sleeping in haystacks and  barns or, if in hostile territory,  in the local hoosegow.  Archie's farmhouse was  situated on the main gravel  road that led to the village, but  t he actual farm was narrow and  ran all the way from concession  to concession. It was bisected  by a swamp that was impassable during the rainy season but  could be traversed after the  freeze up. The lower end  consisted of higher ground and  supported a magnificent stand  of hardwood, huge maples,  birch, beech and butternut  trees while in the western  corner was a grassy hillock that  was beautiful in all seasons, but  particularly so during the  autumn months when the  leaves were changing colour  preparatory to their fall.  We hadn't even started the  haying when one evening after  supper while we were playing  cards, Archie came up with a  proposition that literally took  my breath away, it was so  sudden and surprising. I am  certain that both he and his  good wife Rebecca were worried and deeply concerned over  my future and it probably  terrified them when I had quite  casually remarked that I was  going back to freight riding as  soon as the haying finished.  Anyway what he was now  proposing to me was that I  should stay on with them and,  come fall, he would put in a bid  for the contract to supply the  local cheese factory with wood  and I could help him, not only  with the farm work but share in  the dual work of clearing up the  swamp and cutting the mixed  softwoods that grew there ���  mostly spruce, tamarack, cedar  and balsam. In return for my  work, in lieu of cash, he would  deed me one acre in the corner I  had so much admired and we  would  select  and put aside  sufficient logs to build me a  cabin on it. I was so flabbergasted I couldn't believe it, but  when I came out of the daze I  readily agreed and we shook  hands on it to seal our bargain.  In my mind's eye I already had  the cabin up and had moved in,  but now unforeseen complications arose just as sudden and  unexpected as his generous  offer.  It was a blistering, hot July  day and I had been on an  errand for Mrs. MacRae,  delivering a home-baked pie to  Jim MacDonald, an old bachelor who lived alone at the  crossroads, about two miles  south of Dunvegan. On my  return, the afternoon being  swelteringly hot, I had stopped  to rest at the stone bridge which  spanned a small stream that  was marked on the maps as the  Little Castor River, but was  referred to by all the locals as  "The Creek". 1 doubt if at any  place it was 20 feet wide and no  more than four feet deep but it  was a beautiful little stretch of  water, clear as crystal and I was  watching a school of minnows  as they darted here and there  among the waving weeds.  Sitting on the wall of the bridge  I had just lit my pipe when a car  came along, stopped and I  heard someone call very peremptorily "Hey, you C, come  here! 1 want to talk to you!"  Surprised, not only at the tone  of voice but at the fact that he  knew my name, I looked and  recognized it was the agent for  Mrs. Sutherland, the same  arrogant pip-squeak who had  delivered the notice to Mogens  and me that we had to vacate  the farm. At that time I had had  a hard time controlling my  temper and now all the old  resentment flared back at the  way he was addressing me, just  as if I was some lackey or,  possibly, a well-disciplined dog  trained to obey his master's  commands. Even in the stifling  heat he was nattily attired in a  blue suit, white shirt, collar and  tie and he looked exactly what  he was, a pompous ass with an  overbearing manner and an  exaggerated opinion of himself.  I don't remember precisely  what 1 said but when he  ordered me, in a very curt  manner, to go over to the  farmhouse that Mogens and I  had so recently left, wash the  windows, take a broom and  sweep the floors, etc. inferring  that we had left the place filthy  (which was a damned lie), my  supressed rage got the better of  me. In a few well-chosen words  I not only told him what he  could do with the broom but I  designated the exact spot in his  *o��*Sr%  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FUMIITUIIE  We buy Beer Battles  886-2812  lower anatomy where he could  stick it. At this, and again I am  not certain what his intensions  were, he said something to the  effect that I needed to be taught  a lesson and, fool that he was,  threw open the door of the car  in which he was a passenger,  ducked his head and made a  motion as if he was about to  climb out. That was all I  needed! While the driver of the  car looked on in frozen horror,  I seized him by the hair,  dragged him from the car and,  getting a firm hold on the seat  of his pants and using my knee  for leverage, with one tremendous heave I threw him over the  parapet into the creek!  I was extraordinarily pleased  with myself but I hadn't long to  rejoice. I took a short cut  through the bush back to the  MacRae place but, just as we  were about to sit down to  supper, the phone rang. It was  one of those party affairs, two  long and one short and when  Becky answered it it turned out  to be for me. The caller was  "Big Angus" Gray who operated the post office in the village  and, although he was usually a  rather phlegmatic individual,  now he was obviously excited.  The "gentleman" 1 had thrown  into the creek was a lawyer  from Cornwall and he had  come in dripping and leaving  puddles wherever he stood, not  requesting but demanding the  use of the phone. Granted  permission, he had put in a call  to the Ontario Provincial  Police in Cornwall, thirty miles  away and proferred a charge  against me of assault and  battery and even now "Big  Angus" in his agitated state was  sure the minions of the law  were on their way.  It was a rudely interrupted  meal I can assure you but we  did have time to agree on one  subject and that was that a  change of scenery might be the  best for me in the circumstances, even if only temporarily. Archie drove me to the  station at Greenfield and that  night when the 8:15 p.m. train  pulled out, I was on it heading  for Ottawa. All I had was a ten  dollar bill loaned me by my  friends, but 1 was really pleased  to think that, even if I hadn't  squared accounts with Mrs.  Sutherland for her shoddy  treatment of Mogens, at least I  had done a good job in cooling  off her bumptious, bastard ofa  lawyer!  1  , / ; M  If.

BCRIC big loser in coal deal  by Dock Lockstead  MLA Mackenzie  Bill Bennett's baby, BCRIC,  is the big loser in the North East  coal deal. While Denison and  Teck wallow in government  largesse, BCRlCs coal arm -  BC Coal - will be cut out of the  action.  BCRIC, you will remember,  was created to make us owners  of the rock, and rich to boot.  Unfortunately, Edgar Kaiser  Jr. walked off with the biggest  cash box in the west and  BCRIC was left holding a  massive debt, a tarnished  reputation, and what was left of  Kaiser Resources after the  cream had been skimmed off.  Bennett's passion for BCRIC  skidded abruptly as the shares  slid and charges of mismanagement mounted. His affections  have now been transferred  wholesale to the mega coal  project in the North East.  The provincial government  will put up close to SI billion  towards getting Bill's new baby  off the ground. A minimum of  $400 million will be spent  building the Anzac spur line  into the coal fields. Interest  payments alone on this sum  would amount to $50 million  per year, or $7 for every ton of  coal leaving for Japan. On top  of that, the province must build  a new town, highways and  hydro lines to the tune of $300  million or more.  To recover his massive  public investment, the government will levy a surcharge - but  T   886-8101 M  TAXI  V  JF  >0,fTHE BEACHCO**"  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST  NEW STOCK  Has Just Arrived  Ages 4 - 6 yrs.  and7-14yrs.  ��  More Children's Clothes  Will Be Arriving  Shortly  OWORKWErXR   Cowrie St.  /IK WORLD r-P Sechelt  "WERE WORKING FOR YOU | | OOb'wODO  only $3 per ton. This grossly  inadequate surcharge will not  even escalate with inflation.  We do not have all the  figures as yet, but even Socred  MLA Jack Davis can see that  development of North East  coal will require a public  subsidy of between $ 10 and $20  per ton.  This means that BCRIC will  have to compete with rivals  whose costs have been artificially lowered at government  expense in order to obtain  contracts in Japan.  It is questionable whether  BCRIC will have to compete  with rivals whose costs have  been artificially lowered at  government expense in order to  obtain contracts in Japan.  It is questionable whether  BCRIC-BC Coal-will be able  to expand its coal operation in  the South-East, despite considerable potential. With new  mines opening up in the North  East, in Australia and Alberta,  the Japanese will be up to their  knees in coal.  It is no wonder the BCRIC  shares are not trading well. We  may well wonder why Bill  Bennett has left BCRIC out in  the coal.  But then... Bill's got a brand  new baby now.

The problem with this very  neat formula lies within three  areas: I) the redundancy and  harshness of the message; 2) the  fallibility of the messenger; 3)  the preoccupation of the  audience.  This is one of the main  reasons why today's "successful" preachers seem to be  focussing on glamorous backdrops, brilliantly showcased  musical presentations,  smoothly-paced and tightly-  produced performances, and a  message that contains no harsh  tones, but promise of instant  gratification at a modest price.  Gone are the men like Saul of  Tarsus, Peter of Galilee, Jesus  of Nazareth, Wesley of  England, etc. etc., who could  hold their audiences for two or  three hours with the simple,  spoken words in the most  unprepossessing of surroundings, and send them away  feeling challenged, and well-  nurtured.  In their place are those who  feel it necessary to tailor and  trim the message to meet the  needs of their audiences, and  seduce them with surroundings  and stage management and  glamorous props.  If, as we suggested earlier, we  feel the message taken from this  2,000-year-old book is  redundant, then surely it must  be the preacher as well as the  audience that believes it, since  the preacher is the one who  carries the message, and the  audience is the one who digests  it, or regurgitates it.  If we believe the message is  redundant, then surely we must  also believe that the supreme  messenger, Jesus of Nazareth,  is also redundant, having died  forever in the year 30-34 A.D.  and only living in the memories  of some who read about him,  and really believe he did live.  This form of belief has some  comfort to it, and some  reassurance, since it would also  mean he is not alive and in our  midst and seeing our every  thought and gesture - but few  preachers would be found  preaching such a message.  If, on the other hand, the  preacher and the audience  believe that the message is  dynamic and living today,  through God's Holy Spirit and  the living Christ, there is an  element of threat to it, because  the hearers are constantly being  reminded of how remiss they  are in propagating the message  and in dispensing to the  neighbours the love which God  first bore for them.  So, it would seem the  message is either boring in its  redundancy, or harsh in its  judgement.  What about the preacher  whose task it is to make this  message living and fresh and  vibrant every Sunday morning?  Unfortunately, many  preachers, in fact most of the  preachers, are so dreadfully  fallible.  They ache and they sweat;  they doubt and they fear; they  rationalize and they accommodate; they covet and they  err; they deviate and they  vacillate.  As the apostle Paul said  about preachers: "...we have  this treasure (the message) in  earthen vessels..." (II  Corinthians 4:7a).  And it is because of the  fallibility of the messenger that  the feeling of redundancy and  harshness may radiate from the  pulpit, instead of the vibrant  truth and promise that is  contained fully in the message  today, as it did in the 1st  century A.D. when Jesus  proclaimed it.  The messenger, just like  those listen to the message,  must be fully convinced that  the message is alive and  thriving today, just as it has  since creation, and that it is just  as new and vibrant each time it  is delivered, as it was in Jesus'  day.  And he (or she) must feel the  duty of the messenger is to  deliver the message, faithfully  and powerfully, doing full  justice to its content.  As the poet Ralph S.  Cushman said in his poem,  Kinette Club announces  draw winners  The Kinette Club of Gibsons  and District, Auxiliary to the  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and  District, would like to announce the winners of their  second annual Christmas Turkey draw.

And finally, there is the  audience, coming from all  walks of life and bearing into  the church all manner of  doubts, fears and insecurities,  seeking to find some kind of  reassurance in the church  which they have failed to find  by artificial means in the world  outside the walls of the church.  They have little or no  disposition to be challenged by  a message which requires faith  and understanding to accept;  they want reassurance, pat and  neat and easily digestible!  They do not come to hear a  message which causes them to  assess their daily livii.g in the  light of God's injunction to  them to love one another, they  want reassurance, cozy and  comfortable and without effort  on their part!  How, then, may the  discrepancy between the  message, the messenger, and  the hearer of the message be  solved?  Quickly and simplistically  put, it may be found by  discovering the common  denominator between the three  elements.  Equally simplistically put ���  the message was delivered and  recorded by men in the power  of God's Holy Spirit; it must be  preached and proclaimed by  messengers in the power of  God's Holy Spirit, and it must  be heard by listeners in the  power of God's Holy Spirit.

On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Happy New Year to our  Chinese friendsl From the  first of February to the fifteenth the people of Chinese  origin are celebrating the New  Year of the Rooster with  parades, concerts, banquets  and special sale prices on  goods.  Many exotic foods are prepared at this time and fish, as  always, is a popular item on  the Chinese menu. It will be  popular on any menu if it can  be cooked so that its savoury  sea flavour is brought out.  The Chinese contend that in  breading fish, its genuine  flavour is sacrificed and that in  broiling it to an over-brownish  turn, its flavour is lost.  Fish must have the proper  seasoning, they believe, which  not only helps to bring out the  flavour but also lends a  delicious piquancy.  Chinese sauce adds zest  and delicacy when used on  The mighty shrew  any kind of fish. In baking or  frying fish, add a tablespoon  or so of light soy sauce while  cooking and baste frequently.  Slivered green ginger and  crushed cloves of garlic  combined with a little white  wine slightly sweetened with  honey or sugar.  Ming' or wet steaming is  probably the Chinese housewife's favourite method of  cooking because it is simple  and doesn't require constant  attention. We use bamboo  steamers called "jing loongs"  which stack on the wok. If  you don't have a steamer, put  your fish on a platter on a  "tic-tac-toh" made from placing four long cooking chopsticks placed across the top of  the wok and covered with the  wok lid. Caution!

This Shrew is unique  in that it is venomous.  Shrews are little mouse-like  creatures with small ears and  eyes, long and pointed snouts  and very dense, soft velvety  fur. Despite their small size,  they are very feisty and always  ready to use their teeth when  handled. They are always on  the move looking for food to  keep their high metabolism  going. Their metabolic rate  is twice that of man and some  species will starve in seven  hours if they cannot find food.  It is estimated they consume  over two thirds of their own  body weight in a day.  Most Shrews have a three  hour rhythm of alternately  feeding and resting so they  can be seen at all times of the  day or night. Their basic diet  is insects and they will eat  most anything small enough  for them to overpower. They  will also eat carrion and some  cereals and seeds. They often  suffer from cold starvation,  that is they cannot eat enough  during cold periods to keep  their body temperature up and  die from exposure or shock.  Thrift Shop contract awarded  St. Mary's Hospital Board  has approved the plans and  have awarded the contract to  Rowgon Construction of 1627  Ingleton, Burnaby, B.C. for  the accepted tender cost of  S194.000.00.  The proposed Building,  designed by Fjord Design &  Construction, consists of 3700  square feet of ground level  retail space. The design has  incorporated a "vintage" motif and should definitely add  character to the main street of  Sechelt.  Approximately 2200 square  feet of the proposed building  will be occupied by the St.  Mary's Thrift Shop and the  remaining space will be leased  to a yet unnamed tenant.  The Board of Trustees is  pleased to advise the community that following many  months of planning and  negotiating, the project will  commence construction immediately and will be completed satisfactorily with the  estimated time frame of four  to five months.

Sea You.  Shrews are very short-lived,  usually staying active for a  year or less. Their enemies  include birds of prey especially owls plus foxes and  weasels. Domestic cats will  often hunt Shrews for sport  but seldom eat them because  most Shrews emit a foul  odour from a musk gland in  each flank which apparently  makes them unpalatable to  cats.  They have a very high  pitched squeak and it is  reported that when two  Shrews meet they will try to  out-squeak each other rather  than fight, kind of like two  people having a shouting  match I guess.

The  power is with the people,  provided that the people are  committed, informed and organized."  -Russell W. Peterson  President, National  Audubon Society  The small, local organisations such as our Marsh  Protective Society, the wildlife  clubs and the Sargeant's Bay  Society, are the basis for the  grass root power which does  exist, if we make use of it.  When it comes to the important land use decisions that  are facing our age, wc have a  responsibility to make our  concerns and attitudes known.  As individuals we can write to  our M.P. or M.L.A., alderman  or director; but as a grass roots  collective, we can combine our  efforts to produce more impact  than the sum of the individuals.  Aldo Leopold once said, "It  is the nature of roots to nose  into cracks." So it must be with  us as grass roots: to nose our  way into a solid basis of facts  upon which to base our opinions It is especially important  that we stay informed about the  facts, because it appears that  the provincial government has  abolished one of the most  credible groups of professional  civil servants with the disbanding of the E.L.U.C. Secretariat. The E.L.U.C. will  continue to function, perhaps  without bothering with the  facts, "except, that is, for those  facts which filter through the  newly-politicized Executive  Committees of the various  ministries." (Jim Bonfonti,  Vice Chairman of the Sierra  Club of Western Canada). I  don't believe the E.L.U.C. will  make important land use  decisions without facts, however 1 feel it is wise to keep an  eye on how decision-making  proceeds within E.L.U.C. and  from where they obtain their  information.  What is happening at the  Provincial level may eventually  affect the outcome of our local  land use battles. The Marsh  Society and other groups of  citizens are struggling with  settlement plans, establishing  parks and ecological reserves  and what to do about foreshore  leases. We have little insurance  that politicians will decide not  to throw out our settlement  plans or allow condominiums  to  be  built  on ecologically  EXCAVATING I  J.F.Uf.

Did you  know that the Energy Minister  now has the right to exempt  any energy project from hearings? Certainly not all local  desires can be provided by the  province, since they also consider broader concerns, but the  thought of no hearing for the  locals is frightening.  The only way we have to deal  with such matters is to contact  the politicians and raise a fuss,  demand an explanation and  ensure that our grass roots  voices will be heard. There is  power within each of us  individually and within our  organization. Let's use it.  The above two guests of the Gibsons Pound are looking for good homes. Both are registered German  Shepherds, both are four years old and both have had all their shots. Juno, the female on the left is  spayed. Ernie, is the male on the right.

"Rocky" Mountain and Ki'iiinnal Director Charles Let finally met head-on last Thursday  afternoon. The "Madman of Wilson (reek" has heeii a bitter critic of the regional board since last  summer, but there were smiles and handshakes last week.  Lee sheds some light  Rocky meets his rep  by John Moore  Ihe saga of "Rocky" Mountain took another turn last week  when Mr. S.R. Mountain, the self-styled "poor dumb slob" and  "Madman ol Wilson Creek" whose contributions have graced the  pages of this newspaper in recent months, met face to face with  Charles Lee, Regional Director for Area C.  Ihe two exchanged friendly greetings on this, their first meeting  in person, in spite of the fact that I.ee has been a favourite target of  Mr. Mountain's criticism of the regional board in the past.  However, neither could resist the opportunity to score a few  points.  Lee took the bull, or in this  case the Rocky Mountain  Ram, by the horns and gently  admonished him for his lengthy  and often somewhat barbed  "open letters", assuring him  that a simple phone call would  suffice to attract the attention  of his Area Director.  Unabashed, Mr. Mountain  replied that, as a result of his  long experience in dealing with  municipal politicians and  bureaucrats, he had learned "to  put everything in writing and  have it double-registered."  The exact nature of Mr.  Mountain's original complaint  has at times been obscured by  issues that have arisen prior  and subsequent to the incident  which sparked Mr. Mountain's  current run-in with the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  When Director Lee met Mr.  Mountain on Ihe site of the  incident, last Thursday  afternoon. Director Lee  produced a memo from  Conservation Officer Jamie  Stephen, addressed to regional  board Works Superintendent  Gordon Dixon, which sheds  some light on the sequence of  events.  The memo points out that on  February 20 of last year  Fishery Officer L.K. Chambers  and Conservation Officer  Jamie Stephen inspected the  Works Superintendent's  proposal to trench Wilson  Creek for a crossing of the  regional board water line. The  proposed crossing of Wilson  Creek was approved in early  March of 1980.  At the time of the inspection  of Wilson Creek the Works  Superintendent informed the  officers that it would not be  necessary to trench nearby  Husdon Creek, from which  Mr.   Mountain   has  a   valid  For Valentine's Wee  send our I'll)  i  il  Is^lil  I  II  Mil  Valentine's D.iy is  Saittjrcl.iv, February 14.

"Sometime during the  summer your plans altered and  without consulting with or  advising the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans or this  office," the memo continues,  "the Regional District  excavated a trench across  Husdon Creek a few feet  upstream from the bridge  which we had been advised  would  be carrying the pipe.  "The excavation caused a  partial collapse of the old log  and earth bridge and. despite  immediate repair by the  Regional Board, it was left in a  weak and unstable condition."  According to Mr. Mountain,  the regional board's unauthorized trenching of  Husdon Creek took place  during Ihe first week of last  August, at which time he was  not informed that the work was  being undertaken. As a result  of the excavations, Mr.  Mountain's household water  was fouled by silt, damaging a  washing machine that was in  operation at the time.  Mr. Mountain subsequently  wrote to the regional board at  that time, requesting that the  board reimburse the sum of  $65 for repairs to the washing  machine, The board briefly  debated Mr. Mountain's  request and denied it, but  neglected to inform him  officially. According to Mr.  Mountain, he was never  informed by anyone of the  board's initial decision.  As a result of Mr. Mountain's persistent agitation, the  board reconsidered his request  at their first meeting Ihis year,  largely at the instigation of  Director lee. who urged Public  Utilities Chairman Jim (iurney  lo immediately address himself  to the problem.  Again the board debated Mr.  Mountain's request and once  again decided against paying  Sparks fly at  Gibsons Council  Sparks flew briefly at Gibsons council meeting last Tuesday  night over the issue ofa grant to permit work to continue on the  Gibsons Official Community Plan.  Work on the Community Plan is currently stalled over council's  policy decision regarding ALR land. Community Plan groups  have no mandate to recommend the removal of lands from the  ALR and council has still to receive public endorsement for its  application to the Land Commission.  As a result, Gibsons council has set aside the evening of  Thursday, February 19 at 7:30 pm in council chambers, for a  Public Hearing in order that all persons be afforded an  opportunity to be heard in regard to council's application to have  the AIR designation removed from all lands within the municipal  boundaries.  The temperature in council chambers soared however when  Alderman Larry Trainor and Bill Edney refused to support a  motion that council undertake to complete and adopt the Official  Community Plan in 1981.  Al issue was the municipality's one-third share, amounting to  $4,000. of a/i estimated $12,000 required to complete the  Community Plan, ($7,000 to complete the ongoing draft of the  plan and $4,500 for amendments of zoning and subdivision Bylaws to implement the provision of the Plan.  In spite of assurances that the planning expenditures were an  ongoing expense that could not be accurately determined until the  last minute, Alderman Edney expressed concern that the item was  being "slipped in" lo the provisional budget at the last moment.  Alderman Trainor stated that he was not prepared to support  the motion until he had figures to indicate how much time  Municipal Planner Rob Buchan had devoted to the Community  Plan project and demanded to know "who these people are and  what authority" the Community Plan committee has over council.  "The Province has stressed the importance of adopting Official  Community Plans," Mayor Goddard said, pointing out that  council is under no obligation to adopt thedraft plan as given that  the Plan, like a By-law, is subject to amendment. Mayor Goddard  said, pointing out that council is under no obligation to adopt the  draft plan as given and that the Plan, like a By-law, is subject to  amendment. Mayor Goddard voted with Alderman Labonte and  Strom in favour of the grant application and adoption of the plan.  Alderman Trainor questioned Mayor Goddard's right to cast  the tie-breaking vote, but the Mayor's decision was upheld by  provisions of the Municipal Act. Alderman Strom, who worked  on the Community Plan was a member of the committee before  her election to council, also took exception to Alderman Trainor's  implied criticism of the Plan committee.  "This Plan committee was made up of citizens from this  community at the invitation of council," Strom said, "We received  letters from council inviting us to sit on this committee and I still  have the letter."  Pender Pool closure  Continued from page one.  thanks to the Aquatic Society who were operating the pool in the  black at less than a third of the cost of the Gibsons Pool.  "The Aquatic Society fought this thing through from pie in the  sky to a hole in the ground and then made it work. The operation  has been as perfect as possible serving 2,000 people a month."  A joint meeting of the Regional and School Boards with the  Aquatic Society was scheduled for Monday night and will be  reported next week.  ^)����06��@9��@����6  the $65 repair bill, though al  Director Almond's recommendation, Mr. Mountain was  officially notified of the decision.  Thursday afternoon. Director Lee assured Mr. Mountain he would once again raise  the whole issue before the  board.  Much of the confusion  surrounding the "Husdon  Creek Incident", stems from an  incident involving the subsequent partial collapse of the  earth and log bridge on November 5. During repairs by the  regional board, silt deposited in  the stream disturbed spawning  salmon earmarked as a source  for an egg incubating project of  the Gibsons Wildlife Club. (See  Coast News, November II,  1980)  The issue has also been  complicated by a separate  incident, to which Mr. Mountain and the Regional District  are only indirectly related,  involving Wilson Creek.  Next week: the Coast News  looks at Joe Allan's Problem.  Indians lose  more salmon  The Sechelt Indian Salmon Enhancement program on Sechelt  Inlet received a further setback last week when 3,000 of their  young chinook salmon were believe stolen. A short time ago 5,000  of the young salmon went missing.  Chief Calvin Craigan told the Coast News that originally there  were 20,000 healthy young salmon in the program which was to be  expanded to include 20,000 coho salmon in the near future.  According to Chief Craigan a commercial fishing boat was  reported seen in the area where the fish went missing and the  RCMP investigation continues.  Chief Craigan said that he appreciated the many expressions  of public support that he had received throughout the community.  Sechelt hot  over tax arrears  Chairman of the Finance Committee, Brian Stelck, informed  the Village of Sechelt council on February 4, that because of the  $45,000 owing in unpaid taxes, the Village may be forced to  borrow money at the high interest rate of 17.5% to supplement the  loss and balance the budget.  Without listing names, Alderman Stelck said that the bulk of  the amount owing falls on two individuals in the community.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas noted that it was the "same ones all the  time".  The penalty for overdue taxes is a 10% interest charge added to  the amount commencing in August.  The reason for the delinquent behaviour of the two prominent  citizens is the 7.5% interest profit, explained council during  discussion.  Overdue taxes sit and collect interest at the bank in the interim  al the rate of 17.5% minus the 10% penalty.  "Some may call it smart business but I call it dirty pool," said  Mavor Koch.

Keep lawns, shrubs, and gardens tidy and attractive.  ��� First Impressions. Keep windows sparkling; front and back entrances clean  and inviting.  ��� Not a Minor Detail. You may be used to that dripping tap, the "sticky" door, the  broken window catch...but your buyer will notice. Fix them now.  ��� To Decorate or Not To Decorate? It may be neither necessary nor desirable  to do any major decorating belore selling (after all, your buyers will probably  prefer to select their own paints etc.) However, a badly-marked wall or dingy  closet can be made more attractive with a good scrub, a touch of fresh paint, or a  bright strip of wallpaper.  ��� It Takes a Heap of Living. Rooms can look comfortable and 'lived in' without  being untidy. Keep mess to a minimum. Vacuum and dust regularly. Keep tables  uncluttered; dirty dishes out of sight. Be sure kitchen and bathroom counters and  plumbing are spotless.  ��� Closet Cleanup. Show your closet and storage areas off to best advantage.  Make the best use of space ������ stack linens neatly; hang clothes carefully.  ��� From the Bottom Up. Tidy basement areas. Make sure fuse boxes and heating  systems are easily accessible for examination. There may be potential in your  cellar! Don't hide it with clutter.  ���Garages Are Great. A garage can be a selling point, particularly if viewers are  used to apartment parking problems. Keep yours neat and clean.  When Buyers Call  ���Let Your Salesman Sell. Leave the showing of your house to your salesman.  He knows the features to best emphasize; he knows what his clients are looking  for.  ��� Be Prepared. Be ready at all times to open your house. If something unexpected  does occur, advise your salesman immediately and arrange for another visit.  ���Courteous But Businesslike. Your buyer's main interest is your house. Keep  social conversation to a minimum. Answer questions about your neighbourhood  honestly, but leave discussion of the transaction to your salesman.  ��� Peace & Quiet. Keep noise down to let buyer and salesman examine your house  without distraction. Turn off radios and t.v. If children are on hand, try to keep  them from being too obstreperous.  ��� Love Me Love My Dog. Keep pets out of the way. Buyers may not enjoy being  welcomed by the "furry" members of your family.  ���Provide Comfort. Be sure the house is at a comfortable temperature: warm  during cold spells; fresh and airy on hot summer days. Try to avoid strong  cooking odours that linger. Make sure blinds are raised to let in as much light as  Put on convenient lamps for night callers.
