Architects give advice  Sechelt hears revitalizing ideas  At the Sechelt council meeting on March 4, a West Vancouver  architectural firm gave a slide presentation on examples of urban  design.  Grants are being awarded to municipalities from the provincial  government for downtown revitalization programs. Russell  Chernoff, representative from R.E. Hubert and Partners, made  suggestions to an attentive village council.  Public input was an important ingredient in the decision of  design, council was informed. All those directly involved or  affected in the downtown area should be contacted and asked for  comment as well as key community groups such as the Chamber  of Commerce, historical societies, the Arts Centre and other  special interest groups.  "Consideration should be given to the users of the downtown  area." said Chernoff, "as handicapped people, shoppers and store  owners all have their own design needs."  In deciding the theme, a survey of the existing historical  buildings was suggested as a source for ideas. Then, the  importance of continuity in the theme was stressed.  Similarity in architectural structure, texture, colour schemes,  and building materials in the downtown area would enforce the  theme and maintain its continuity. Chernoff gave the examples of  downtown Victoria where street lighting and colour were kept  Both councils complain  Gas line objections raised  uniform and the use of flower baskets helped in creating the  unique atmosphere. Granville Island's theme is maintained in the  bright colours of the awnings and building materials. Gastown  employs lighting and patterned road work for the continuance of  their theme.  Street furniture, as well as being useful items, could also be used  as decorative accents. Benches, planters, garbage receptacles and  bus shelters could also be kept in theme and add atmosphere to the  walkways in the downtown areas.  The designation of parking areas should have a well-thought  out strategy and be built for future tiered additions. These can also  be an enhancement to the downtown areas by the addition of  shrubs and trees.  Overall, the downtown area should be designed to anticipate  growth explained Chernoff, and proposals should be  recognizable. Construction plans should be made in stages on an  incremental basis.  Mayor Bud Koch said that Sechelt has special problems in  design as it is locked into an isthmus. Chernoff commented that  "sometimes the special problem of an area can be made its asset, as  in the case of Granville Island." He added that the particular  nature of a small town can be built on.  Mr. Chernoff and his assistant MelanieSt. Pierre were thanked  for their informative presentation by council.  The question of the access route to the proposed Gibsons bypass is up in the air again and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs  will be asked to judge the validity of Mayor Goddard's right to  recall the endorsement of Payne Road for reconsideration.  More than twenty people crowded into the public gallery of  Gibsons council chambers last Tuesday evening to hear eight  speakers express conflicting opinions on the subject of council's  decision to endorse Sunnycrest Road as the top priority access  route to the by-pass.  "Council's action on the proposed access route has degenerated  into a political fiasco", said former Gibsons Mayor Lome Blain,  first of the speakers to object to council's recall of the original  endorsement of Payne Road and the substitution of Sunnycrest  Road.  Council recalled the Payne Road endorsement at it s January  31 meeting, a decision based substantially on the strength ofa five-  page report submitted by Municipal Planner Rob Buchan,  favouring Sunnycrest over Payne Road as the principal access  route. Council re-debated the issue at the February 16 Planning  Committee Meeting and endorsed Sunnycrest Road at its regular  meeting February 17.  Mr. Blain accused council of changing its decision "for the  dubious benefit of a handful of merchants", and was critical of the  Planner for approaching council directly after the original  decision had been made.  "As a Village employee the Planner should restrict his actions to  advising the Planning Committee, not urging political actions",  Blain said.  Blain also questioned Mayor Goddard's prerogative of  recalling the Payne Road endorsement under Section 240 of the  Municipal Act, which states:  "(I) The mayor may, at any time within one month after its  adoption, return for reconsideration a by-law, resolution or  proceeding of council which has not had the assent of the electors,  has not been reconsidered by the council under sub-section (3) or  has not been acted on by an officer, servant or agent of the  municipality.  "(2) The mayor may state his objections to the council. The  clerk shall record in the minute book the objections, suggestions  or amendments of the mayor.  "(3) The council shall, as soon as convenient, consider the  objections, and either reaffirm or reject the by-law, resolution or  proceeding, and if rejected, it is deemed to be repealed and isof no  force or effect whatever."  Mr. Blain argued that Mayor Goddard had not clearly stated  any objections when she recalled the Payne Road endorsement  and that therefore the recall was out of order.  . "The Mayor has put the cart before the horse," Blain said/  Gibsons and Sechelt councils will request that Premier Bennett  and the Provincial cabinet reconsider the decision to approve the  southern route for the natural gas pipeline to serve Vancouver  Island.  The village councils received letters from the District of Powell  River last Tuesday night pointing out that the choice of the  southern route, instead of the northern route from Williams Lake  through Powell River, will probably deprive both the Sunshine  Coast and the Squamish area of any hope of receiving natural gas  as an alternate source of energy.  The letter points out that in 1980 the Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities unanimously supported the northern over  the southern route.  The Economic Development Commission of Powell River is  also circulating a petition protesting the decision by Bennett's  government to award the contract to B.C. Hydro to construct the  pipeline via the southern route.  "/Vow Brad and Eva are  really going to town'  That was the caption painted  on a large sign at the end of the  Community Hall at Gambier  Harbour on Saturday, February 28th to bid a fond 'Farewell'  but not 'Goodbye' to two of the  community's longest residents.  After a combined 87 years on  the Island they are moving to  Gibsons. A farewell tea was  attended by about 40 residents  and a parting gift presented to  the popular couple. John  Newton-Mason of West Bay  donated one of his beautiful  hand carved Goldeneye Ducks  as a remembrance from all  present.  Mrs. Eva Drage arrived on  Gambier Island with her late  husband in 1937. For many  years she helped him run the  local Post Office. She always  maintained a keen interest in  everything taking place on the  Island and gives anyone who  may drop by a warm welcome  in her home. She and her little  dog 'Alfie' will be missed on  their twice daily walks along  the Gambier Road.  Mr. W.S. Bradbury, fondly  known as 'Brad', has lived on  the Island since 1938. In 1946  he helped build the present  road systems which connect the  communities of Gambier Harbour, West Bay, New Brighton  and also Andy's Bay. He also  helped maintain the roads on  Keats, Hopkins, Twin Creeks  and to the south of Gambier at  Camp Fircum & Camp Arta-  ban. After 21 years on the roads  Brad retired in 1963 and has  enjoyed puttering around the  garden, getting the winter  wood supply in and going to  Gibsons for the weekly shopping excursion.  Our loss is Gibsons' gain as  they start their new lives among  many old friends living on the  Sunshine Coast.  The petition points out that the lower mainland of B.C. is  already suffering from urban congestion and that the selection of  the southern route would serve only to aggravate this congestion,  whereas the northern route would open up an area north of the  lower mainland to industrial and residential development.  A four-company consortium had announced the construction  of a Nitrogen Fertilizer complex in the Powell River area if the  northern route were chosen.  No gym in Creek  Last week the Ministry of Education in Victoria  announced that under new regulations Roberts Creek  Elementary School will not be eligible for a full size  gymnasium.  According to the Ministry, only schools that are  expanding, such as Davis Bay and West Sechelt, are eligible  for full gymnasiums and the upgrading of existing schools  may have to wait for as long as two or three years.  For the full story see Jeanie Norton's "Roberts Creek"  column on Page 6.  Hell of a bill  B.C. Tel workers may be on strike, but the company's  computers aren't. In fact, they may be working too hard.  That, or somebody at South Coast Ford in Sechelt has a lot  of friends in far away places.  When Sales Manager Harvey McCracken opened the  company's phone bills for the months of January and  February he found that they added up to a heart-stopping  $37,731.85.  "We knew the rates were going up," McCracken said, "but  this is a bit much."  Animal dumping  Responding to a letter concerning the dumping of animal  carcasses at the Sechelt disposal site, Gibsons Mayor  Lorraine Goddard stated categorically that the municipality  of Gibsons does not use the Sechelt dump for any such  purpose, but uses a site in the Gibsons area.  The Mayor stated that animal carcasses are never left in  the open but buried in an 8 -10 foot deep trench, covered  with lime and back-filled.  "Gibsons is in no way associated with the scene described  in the letter," Mayor Goddard said.  Alderman Larry Trainor, who challenged Mayor Goddard's  right to recall the Payne Road recommendation at the January 31  council meeting, requested that Mr. Blain's written submission be  included in the minutes and that the irregularities suggested by  Mr. Blain be forwarded to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs for  adjudication to determine, whether the Mayor's ruling was in  order under Section 240.  A delegation of residents of Davis Road, represented by Mr.  Fredrickson, expressed deep concern about the possible extension  of Sunnycrest Road below Highway 101 as recommended by the  Department of Highways, which would cut the one block long  street in half.  Fredrickson pointed out that Davis Road is a quiet residential  area and said, "We who settled on Davis Road complied with the  regulations and building codes required by the Village. Now it's  up to the Village to live up to its part of the bargain."  Fredrickson and Donald Scott both questioned Alderman  Strom's decision to change her support from the Payne Road  access to the Sunnycrest route. In the course of an impassioned  plea for the Payne Road access, Ian Mackenzie even suggested  that "other councillors" had pressured Alderman Strom into  changing her vote.  Please turn to.

John Denley makes his statement about the controversial educational retreat (see slory below) while Secretary-Treasurer  Roy Mills listens.  Points to factual inaccuracies  Supt. Denley defends ^retreat'  by John Burnside  Superintendent John Denley of School District M6 took issue  with 'inaccurate reporting' in the Coast News at the School Board  meeting of Thursday, March 5. The article in question was an  editorial entitled "Of principals, priorities, and the Pender  experience" which appeared in the Coast News of February 17.  The editorial was critical of an educational retreat for the  principals of the area at the International Plaza Hotel in North  Vancouver which was held the week after the school board turned  down a request from the Pender Aquatic Society for school board  assistance with the operating funds for Pender swimming pool.  Denley told the school trustees that the concept of educational  retreats met with general approval and was in part paid for by  professional development funding of the B.C. Teachers  Federation.  The superintendent of schools said that the 'hospitality suite'  mentioned in the editorial was in fact a 'parlour room' which was  donated for the use of the retreat by the hotel management.  The chairman of the school board. Don Douglas, was present  throughout the educational retreat as a guest, as was the  superintendent. Superintendent Denley said that his role at the  retreat was to present a paper to the principals on leadership and  to participate in the discussions.  Denley took particular exception to an allegation which  appeared in the editorial that he had spent an extra two days at  the. International Plaza Hotel before going off on accreditation  business at Maple Ridge for the Department of Education.  "1 returned to the Sunshine Coast on Saturday evening at the  conclusion of the retreat and, in fact, came over on the ferry that  evening with the chairman of the evening, Irustec Bruce  Puchalski", said Denley.  In the same vein. Denley told the trustees that by Sunday  afternoon he was touring Maple Ridge Secondary School in  company with several administrators of the area and by 8 am.  Monday morning was meeting the students of Maple Ridge  Secondary.  Superintendent Denley was the chairman of an accreditation  team for the Department of Education and he pointed out that it  was common practice when schools were to be accredited that  school districts release their administrators for the purpose.  "The same thing happened here at Pender Harbour and at  Chatelech when they were facing accreditation procedures." said  Denley. "All funds for accreditation procedures are paid by the  Department of Education," said Denley.  On a reference in the editorial to himself 'hiding behind ,he  skirts of Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills', Denley said, "Mr. Mills  is not that kind of a boy. Mr. Mills does not consider his primary  concern to be my guardian angel," said Denley.  Denley suggested that the chairman of the school board should  on this one occasion write to the Coast News correcting the misstatements.  Trustee Brian Hodgins of Bowen Island was quick to agree with  Superintendent Denley. "1 was bothered by that attack when I  read it on the ferry." said Hodgins, "and I move that the chairman  write to the newspaper correcting the statement."  Hodgins also seized the opportunity to make a statement about  the role of school trustees. "Give it to us," he urged the newpapers.  "I hate to see administrators getting it in the neck for carrying out  our wishes." r  The  Sunshine.  Coast News, March 10, 1981  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons.

Denley did not stay two extra  nighls at the International Plaza Hotel in  North Vancouver. An informant made an  assumption. The attempt to corroborate  that assumption was stymied by conflict of  newspaper deadline and hotel office hours.  At that point it was decided to go with it  because il was probably correct. That  decision was a mistake and the apology  due is here tendered.  Having said that, it may well also be  worth saying that the discrepancy in  attitude which sends principals off on an  educational retreat for two days for a  comparable sum which could not be found  to keep the Pender pool operating for a  year remains a discrepancy in attitude.  It now looks as though the Pender  Aquatic Society, as it has done so many  times before, is going to put community  first and regroup and continue lo operate  the pool and their decision is to be  commended.  As perhaps a final statement on the  controversy over the I'ender Harbour  poo], it should be borne in mind that the  Aquatic Society was required to have its  budget prepared by October .11. At that  time there appeared on the provisional  school board budget the sum of $5,000 to  be contributed towards the operation of  the Pender pool. When the final school  board budget came down in February,  four months after the deadline for the  budget of the Aquatic Society, that  provision had been changed.  The Aquatic Society feels that an  undertaking of support was given. The  school board denies it, but even if no  undertakings were given the Aquatic  Society's difficulty stemmed from a change  in the school board budget and the  difficulty could have been corrected if the  school board had had the grace to  recognize the needs of the society for at  least this year. That they chose not to do so  was a graceless decision and speaks ill of  their sense of the fitness of things and, yes.  their priorities.  Protest is justified  We would commend both village  councils for the promptness with which  they registered their objections to the  bypassing of the Sunshine Coast by the  natural gas line to Vancouver Island. This  petulant and expedient decision by the  provincial government will have the effect  of  denying   the   Sunshine   Coast   of a  domestic alternative to oil as a heating  source possibly in perpetuity.  We would draw the attention of our  readers to the clip-out coupon on Page Six  of this week's paper and also to the petition  which will be circulating on this side of the  Strait of Georgia. This decision must be  protested.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  32 out 39 people at last Thursday's  meeting called by the Justice Development Commission voted in favour of a  recommendation to the federal government stating in effect that capital  punishment should be retained and  reinforced.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Ingredients of Delight  All the ingredients of delight were in the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre last Saturday night when Peter Trower  and the group of back-up musicians he has been pleased to  call Industrial Accident, after  one of his poems, provided  the entertainment to an overflow crowd of well over one  hundred people.  The crowd had come to' be  entertained and they were not  disappointed in that regard.  Under the leadership of Terry  Cowderoy the music provided  was very good indeed and  Trower's words, when you  could hear them, had the  authentic stamp of poetic  magic.  If there is a complaint from  this corner, and it is acknowledged that there were  many expressions of delight  and surprise from the audience between sets and at the  end of the concert, it is that  the words got lost too often.  Trower is on to something  potentially very exciting in his  fusion of music and poetry.  Music adds dimensions of  magic and the potential of  these flexible and talented  musicians, the brooding magnetic stage presence of Trower  and the high fine quality of  Trower's words could be a  combination which could scale  all the heights of excellence.  The potential is there but it  is the opinion here that a very  promising concept and its  highly talented practitioners  arc beginning to take a wrong  turn. For me the highlight of  the affair came early when  Terry Cowderoy and his marvellously flexible and supportive guitar teamed up with  Trower for a spoken version of  the poem Overhead Crane.  Other poems were lost to  questionable diction and overpowering drums. Barry  Krangle, whose energy and  talent are undoubted and  invaluable in the endeavour,  should perhaps consider the  use of brushes. There were  times when the words of a  very fine poet were being  obliterated by yet another  heavy-handed drummer boy  and there was no one there to  hear the drums.  Trower, himself, if it is  singing that he wants to do,  must assume some responsibility for his singing diction  as he years ago did for his  spoken.  And while everyone there  was full of appreciation for the  work of Terry Cowderoy, it is  Cowderoy's task as Trower's  musical collaborator to ensure  that the balance between  music  and  words   is   main  tained in favour of the words.  There was the appetite in  the audience for more poetry,  good though the music was.  Perhaps a middle 'set' of  Trower and poetry between  the heavier musical segment  of the performance. It is  unacceptable for a man with  as much excellent material as  Trower to turn away an eager  and overflowing crowd because 'he has nothing rehearsed'.  This may be a case where  familiarity is breeding discontent. I know every poem  and song that Trower performed. I was stationed near  the front and .1 was giving it  my best attention and I heard  the words clearly of only a  couple of poems - or songs if  the distinction is more  fashionable.  As a singer, Trower is improving. He is benefitting  from his association with  Cowderoy and, again, the  combination of poetry, music  and song is a first-rate and  exciting concept. It would be  fitting if all concerned would  remember that it was the  poetry that people came for.  A few years ago Bob Dylan  was touring with The Band, as  fine a group of musicians as  any practising the craft. There  was a point, however, when it  was just Dylan and his acoustic guitar and a stool. The  audience loved it and, in  truth, it was probably what  they came for.  I have no wish to be discouraging to Trower and  Industrial Accident. What  they did was very good  indeed. Greatness, however,  is within their reach and  should be grasped. The surest  way of grasping it, the ingredient that makes the group  more than just another good  band, is the poetry of a very  fine poet and there really  aren't too many of those  around.  The words, gentlemen,  have respect for the words.  They deserve it and Trower is  not being well-served by his  collaborators if his fascination  with the persona of blues-  shouter is exercised at the  expense of the first-rate poet  he also is. Besides being a  poet, Trower has become a  compelling performer. All of  the ingredients are there for  delight. Some refined and  disciplined attention must,  however, be paid to the  mixing or a dynamic potential  will be mis-used.  Industrial Poem  Thai night. Slim Ahernathy  pushed the wrong button and wrapped his best friend  three times around a drive-shaft  in directions the hones won't bend.  They shut her down and eased him out  broken most ways a man can break  yet he clung lo his ruin for twenty-four hours  like a man to a life-raft for his death's sake.  Bul they'd hardly hurried him away from there  as we stood around shockdrunk, incapable of help  when they cranked those expensive wheels up again  and started rolling more goddamn pulp.  "Hamburger for lunch tonight, boys!"  joked a foreman to the crew.  I wished he'd smelted our hale but he never even flinched  as Ihe red-flecked sheets came through.  Peter Trower  from the book "Going for Coffee"  published by Harbour Publishing  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  $  >%  w  When trade unionists have  a need to apply some pressure  on the capitalist classes to  have a contract signed, it  usually is a simple matter  of "down tools", "hit the  bricks" and "damn the  scabs". It can be a very  effective, and often the only,  tactic open to a union man to  improve his lot. When it  comes to white collar types  and members of so-called professional associations, however, things get a little more  complicated.  Take the teachers for  example. They're very unhappy right now because the  provincial government won't  give them the same pension  indexing privileges as other  government employees. In  fact they're so damn mad,  they are talking about going  on strike for a day. Despite the  fact that they are being given  enthusiastic support for this  tactic by their students (as  long as the teachers pick a  sunny spring day), this isn't  likely to get them too far with  the government. Every day  the teachers go out, the  government saves three or  four million. The only response teachers are likely to  get from militant action is for  the government to tell them to  take two days so they can  balance the provincial budget.  Then we have the doctors.  They want a raise in excess of  40 per cent. You don't hear  them talking strike. They  know damn well there aren't  enough golf courses in all of  B.C. to hold them all if they  walk off the job.  No, the doctors have conceived of a much cleverer  tactic - one from which  the teachers could learn a  great deal. The doctors have  decided on a tactic they  euphemistically call "balanced billing". What this means  is, they set their own fees  and what the government  doesn't pay for, the docs  charge the customer. Let's say  fixing a broken finger is  worth twenty bucks. If the  government pays only fifteen  for broken fingers then the doc  charges you the extra five.  This seems a much more  sensible approach to the  problem of what the white  collars should do when they  need a little more than they  have. Teachers should take a  page from the doctors' book  and try the same approach. If  they don't have enough to  give themselves a secure  retirement, maybe they  should raise a few bucks on  their own by offering "balanced billing" education. Not  only   could   this   tactic   be  enormously effective in providing teachers with the  extra funds needed for a  decent retirement, but it could  have a great educational  benefit.  Imagine the "balanced billing" or "fee for service"  classroom. Certainly the teacher would have to give one  free lesson before he started  collecting fees. After all, the  people already pay for basic  education. But after the basic  lesson has been taught, the  teacher could really start  raking it in.  "Now class, that is the  lesson for today. Turn to page  28 in your workbook and we  will practice what you have  just learned."  "Please Sir. What page was  that?"  "That will be fifteen cents,.  Smith.... Thank you. That's  page 28."  "Sir. Will you come and tell  me if I've done this one  right?"  "Desk calls are twenty-five,  cents, Bascombe. You know  my fee schedule."  "May I come to vou then  sir?"  "Yes, Bascombe. The first  visit is free."  "Now   sir.    Is   this   one  right?"  "No."  "What's wrong with it,  sir?"  "You have made two errors  in addition and one in multiplication."  "Where sir?"  "That will be a nickel each  for the addition and thirty-  five cents for the multiplication."  "I don't have change sir."  "I'll send you my bill at  the end of the month."  With a balanced billing  education system like this, a  good teacher should be able  to make fifty or sixty dollars  a day. A poor teacher could  make hundreds. Not only  would this solve the teachers'  pension problems in a much  more productive way than a  one day strike, but it would  ensure that the students  would pay very close attention  to their lessons.

'���  I  1  afattaaaMaM  k*ata>*MMa tarn  Letters to the Editor  Coast News, March 10, 1981  Who needs a soap-opera?  Editor:  After 2 months of reading  John Burnside's editorials,  Musings; and Roy Mill's letters  - plus Maryanne West's column, I feel I don't need to  watch a soap opera!  Putting all these together  and reading Maureen Lee's  letter last week - maybe us poor  taxpayers should sit up and  take notice of what John and  Maryanne have been trying to  tell us about where our school  tax dollars are going.  It's a wonder Pender Harbour residents haven't wanted  an old fashioned lynching party  knowing 'their' pool only  needed $5,000 of school board  money. When $1,500 approx.  was spent on rooms alone for  the "educational retreat" (that's  a conservative estimate).  As I helped pay for that  'retreat' I hope we see some  good results come out of it. 1  certainly hope the sandbox  idea wasn't a "Plaza plaything"  at $2,200 each and that these  will not be an added feature to  our elementary schools with all  the health hazards they bring.  A rumour that seems to be  around this community is the  fact that the school board is  thinking of employing yet  another assistant superintendent, which would bring the  grand total of assistants to 3.  Re-reading John Burnside's  musings of Jan. 13th, it makes  you wonder with this age of  efficiency and computerization  why we even need 2 now. It  sounds like too many chiefs  and not enough Indians.  It's rather frightening to read  Burnside's Musings of Feb.  24th and I hope for the  children's sake he is wrong, and  in the future teachers will no  longer seem to be the low man  on the very high totem pole.  At times it must be frustrating to Maryanne trying to  report school board meetings  and generally keeping the  public up to date with correct  information, when many meetings of which she states seem to  be "all cut & dried" and very  routine. Thank you Maryanne  as someone should publicize  them.  With the budget of about $10  million, the school board have,  I feel sure all us taxpayers are  glad John and Maryanne do  their jobs of monthly editorials  and reporting and generally  keeping us informed and I hope  they continue to do so and  make us aware of where the  dollars are being spent.  Thank you Mr. Mills for  pointing out errors and omissions in articles and giving the  school board side of the  situations.  It would be nice to see  monies going directly back into  the classrooms to upgrade the  present standards and maybe  offer more things to help the  students in their future. For  example, those students that  want to go to university for  either engineering or business  have to have a course of  calculus and this right now is  By-pass needed now  Editor:  About a year ago 1 sought  and received public spirited  help from the Coast News. I  asked that pictures and stories  about local traffic conditions  appear more frequently in the  news in order to arouse public  interest in getting work on the  Gibsons by-pass started.  Thanks Coast News and also  Mr. Duncan Sim of Pender  Harbour and local Social  Crcditers who made a grass  roots effort to have work begin  on the by-pass this year.  Opposition has arisen from  some of Gibsons Council and  merchants who want Sunny  crest road as the entrance to the  by-pass rather than Payne  Road chosen by the Highways  Department.  I suggest the travelling public  and local residents make their  views known immediately to  the Minister of Highways, Mr.  Fraser, Parliament Buildings,  Victoria. Write, wire or phone.  We may yet lose the by-pass if  local opposition is too great.  Please ask Mr. Fraser to  support the decision of his  highway engineers and begin  work on the by-pass right  away.  Yours truly  Ian J.

A representative of the Bank will be in  Sechelt March II, 1981.  Persons considering responding to this advertisement  should consult their lawyer  before signing any application  or other document. There are  some clauses in these forms  that could result in a very  serious loss to an unsuspecting  applicant.  For example, if an applica-  A poison pen  Editor:  .

Sorry Howie I'm not  even   going   to   attempt   to  not taught in government high  schools. I'm sure there would  be no trouble in spending  money improving basic education!  M. Frisch  To keep his pants up  Editor:  With all the wordy comment  from Mr. Mills it is hard to see  any point; but a few seem to  jump from the page. He signs  everything Secretary-Treasurer, Board of School Trustees.  So we would assume he probably writes it all on school  board time, on school board  paper, with a school board pen;  and then has a school board  typist type it all out on more  school board paper and put it  in a school board envelope,  with a school board stamp and  mail it off in the school board  mail.  No wonder there is no money  for our pool, as usual it is all  used up in "Administrative  Costs" holding up the pants of  another bureaucrat, who has  nothing better to do with his  time than to rationalize his  existence to someone, even if it  is himself.

Mervyn Boucher, LLB  President  Sechelt Ratepayers Assn  Editor:  Every year the Canadian  Cancer Society has a daffodil  sale to provide some additional  financial support for its work.  This year it will be two weeks  earlier than usual because of  the early growing season, and  will be held on the Sunshine  Coast on Friday, March 13.  It may be asked why, because  of Terry Fox's Marathon of  Hope, the Cancer Society is  continuing its usual fund  raising campaigns this year.  The answer is simply that Terry  Fox ran the Marathon to raise  funds for cancer research, and  though the Cancer Society may  administer those funds for  research, none of the money  raised by Terry will be used for  other essential Society projects  and services.  Moreover, although the  magnificent total raised by  Terry was far beyond his  wildest dreams, it will be  expended on research facilities  and personnel in centres all  across Canada, and not merely  in this province where he lives.  In addition to Terry Fox  money for special research the  Cancer Society will continue to  devote 60% of its campaign  funds towards previously existing cancer research work.  The Cancer Society still  needs all the public support it  can get for its routine work,  which reaches into every community. This includes public  and school education programs  about health hazards, such as  smoking, and good health  habits. This means providing  literature and films for volunteers to use, such as Ron Seal  used recently for teachers in  Elphinstone School. The Services to Patients program, run  in our area by Patti Malcolm,  offers information, transportation, and emotional support  to cancer patients, and financial aid where needed. Fran  Ovens helps this program by  talking to women's groups and  patients about breast cancer.  The Vancouver Lodge of the  Cancer Society provides cheerful accommodation and services for out of town people  receiving treatment at the  adjacent Cancer Clinic.  Financial support for the  Daffodil Sale will continue to  provide another source of  funds for the fight against  cancer.  Sincerely,  N.J. Godkin  OOPS!  In last week's ad for the  Suncoast Players Annual General Meeting, we erroneously  printed that the meeting would  be held in the Legion Hall,  Gibsons, rather than the correct location, the Legion Hall,  Sechelt.

Except for  occasional visits, I have removed myself from my double's  bailiwick. To all intents and  purposes, it should mark an  end to the annoying incidents.  But I have not quite heard the  last of my doppelganger.  A few more years flip off the  calendar.  "In the south wing of Oakalla  Prison  among  meek-looking men  who've committed the ultimate  crime  ami murderous-looking men  who've written hail cheques  where the barred drums climb  lour tiers to the ceiling  and awful things have been  done beyond green doors  someone nudges my side  saying: 'Hiya, Jimmy, howin-  hell's she going?'  Never heard that you'd been  made!"  Needless to say. my name is  not "Jimmy" but I am most  assuredly in the slammer. How  I end up there is not that  germane to this particular  chronicle. Suffice to say that 1  am caught in very minor  violation of a very undemocratic law, draw a hard-line  magistrate and end up with a  month in the pokey plus a  $1,000 fine. 1 have been  assigned as a cleaner or trusty  to the maximum-security wing.  It is a spartan, forbidding place  that houses death-row and the  gallows among other medieval  delights. I am utterly traumatized for the first few days but  by the time the old lag accosts  me, I have somewhat adjusted  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  to the frightening reality  ol  prison.

Could have sworn you  was  Jimmy Dunsworth. Sorry hud.'  The smile slipping like smoke  from the hooked face,  he slopes off shaking his head."  I am not about to leave it at  that. After all this time, here is a  guy who actually knows my  nefarious look-alike by name.  While I am in this unpleasant  place, I might as well try and  find out something about him.  He has caused me some damn  bad moments over the years.  There is still a lumpy scar on  the inside of my lip.  I wait until yard-time; then  corner the battered old con. He  is still confused by my resemblance to the junkie I now  know as Jimmy Dunworth.  "Gooddammit, you guys look  enough alike to be bloody  twins!" he marvels. "You sure  you ain't really Jimmy putting  me on?"  Although I swear up and  down that I am not, I don't  think he ever entirely believes  me.

"Jimmy and me grew up in  the East End together. He come  from a big family and his old  man was a real mean bastard.  Worked on Ihe docks. Even  time he got drunk, he'd slap his  old lady around and the kids  loo, Jimmy was the oldesl and  he got the worst of it, Made him  pretty mean too, When he was  about fourteen, he went alter  the old bastard with a two-by-  four. Heat the sonofabilch up  so had. he goddamn near died.  Ihey threw Jimmy in reform  school for that.  When he got out of there, he  took to the streets and started  living by his wits. He was a  pretty good thief and he made  out, Wc went on a few scores  togelher when he needed  another guy bul he mostly liked  to work alone. Still docs. He's a  real loner when it comes to guys  but he likes the broads. Generally has at least one of them on  the string.  Course you know he's a  smackhead. We both got  turned on to junk when we was  about sixteen. Jimmy keeps it  under control better than I do.  though. Don't let his habil  build up too bad. He's a luck\  bastard too. Hardly done an>  time since he was in Juvenile  Home. Hell. I'm in and out ol  the slam pretty regular but nol  Dunworth. Must have a rab.  bit's foot or something. He's  beaten beefs where anyone else  would have fell heavy."  "Think I must have been his  alibi half the time." 1 laugh  wryly. I tell him about some of  the incidents.  "Yeah, looking like Jimmy  could get you in grief all right."  agrees the old con who's name  js Dusty Schultz. "He's rubbed  a lot of people the wrong way.  But he really ain't too bad of a  guy if he likes you. Hell, he's  done me some good favours.  But like I say, he's a real lone  wolf. Don't make friends easy.  Sometimes you don't see him  for months. They say he just  holes up in a pad someplace  with a broad and reads. He's an  awful guy for reading. Maybe  that gives him a bit of an edge  on the rest of us when it comes  to smarts."  Dusty tells me a few more  things of little consequence  Bul at least I now have a rough  picture of Jimmy Dunworth  He certainly wouldn't win ain  good citizen awards but he  doesn't sound like a mad-dot  psychopath either. And the  part about the reading strikes ;i  definite chord. Who knows,  maybe he's even a closet poet.  The oddness of that fancy is  hard to grasp. I try to imagine  what strange and hitter poems  he might compose. He seems  human to me now rather than  some nameless, inimical cipher  stalking my life.  My brief unwanted stint in  Oakalla is soon up. 1 literally  dance past the guntowers and  out through those bleak penal  gates.  It is the last time Jimmy  Dunworth's shadow will impinge on my life. A few months  later. I see in the papers that hi  has been gunned down in an  abortive robbery. My doppel-  ganger's luck has run out on  him at last. I feel an odd twinge  of something like relief mingled  with a peculiar and illogical  regret. My nemesis is gone foi  good and yet in a strange way, 1  feel as though I have lost some  Hawed and unknown brother.

One  spin-off the high cost of books  Is a marked increase in the  number of second hand  bookstores, but, like everything else, from cars to  chocolate bars, as books  get more expensive the quality  of the product is declining.  The other side effect of the  high cost of books is likely fo  be a renewed interest in those  venerable repositories of human learning, the libraries.  For the next few weeks I'll be  taking a look at libraries on the  Sunshine Coast. This week I  dropped in to the Sechelt  library and talked with Marie  Montgomery about the library, its past and its future.  The present Sechelt Library  was built in 1967 as a Centennial project for the Sechelt,  Halfmoon Bay and Redrooffs  area. The lot on which the  building stands was purchased by Sechelt council in  1966 from Alice Amelia  French, a well loved and long  time resident of the village,  for the token sum of $1,200.  The building was officially  opened on December 17,1967.  The library presently contains some 6,000 books and is  open Tuesday 10 a.m.-l p.m.,  Thursday 10 a.m.-l p.m.  and Saturday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Saturday afternoons are  busiest.  Though it's located in  Sechelt, the library serves the  area from Halfmoon Bay to  Wilson Creek, with the majority of its 250 odd subscribers (1980 figures) living  outside   the   village   proper.  According to Marie Montgomery, the majority of those  I have been thinking  recently uf what I suppose  you could tall 'a philosophy of reading'. Because of the endless  'hype' we are subjected to  by the media there is a  tendency to think only in  terms of new titles and  best sellers. This has its  place because it fosters  growth, hut there is the  danger of forgetting that  there arc thousands of  older or less well-known  books lhat nevertheless  make excellent reading.  So with this in mind, in  this space every week, we  will give you a list of  possibly forgotten hooks  that we recommend for  enjoyable and interesting  reading.  May you discover something exciting!  Rose  subscribers are older people  on fixed incomes who love to  read but cannot afford to buy  large numbers of books at  current prices. She has also  noticed an increase in the  number of young women with  children joining the library  and while I was there a lady  from Gibsons who is already a  member of that library, came  in to take out a membership.  The library's budget is  small, consisting of membership fees, which just "cover  the heat and light", and  grants from the Village and  the regional board.  "We've also had one or two  memorial bequests that have  been very helpful," Marie  says.  The volunteer staff of the  Sechelt Library is careful to  get good value for its limited  book dollars, shopping from  publisher's clearing lists and  making trips to Vancouver to  take advantage of discounts  and clearance sales. Local  bookstore owners have also  helped out with discounts and  selection.  "Rose Nicholson of the  Bookstore and Ken Barker at  the NDP Bookstore have been  wonderful to us," Marie says.  Demands of space have made  the business of book selection  increasingly important. The  library welcomes donations of  books, but has had to become  more selective of late because  of limited shelf and storage  space. The low shelves,  originally designed for use by  elderly members and a single  closet sized storage room at  the back are crammed with  books and the staff is very  short of work space for  cataloguing and files. There is  no space at all for repair work  and repairs to books are done  at home by the volunteers.  The single most important  effect of the crowded conditions, Marie Montgomery  feels, is the lack of "reading  space". A library is more than  a book depot; it is an island of  quiet tranquillity in a busy and  noisy world where one should  be able to look at a book or  books at leisure and in comfort. The hours put into the  careful selection of books are  wasted if they can't be made  accessible.  "People often come in and  take a look around and say,  'There isn't anything in this  library', but if they'd just stop  and pull a book off the shelves, they'd see that there are  some really wonderful books  RDPBoohstore  hne Honks  See our ad  on the Community  Page 6   Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday 2 - 4 pm  Wednesday 2 - 4 pm  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9 pm  Saturday 2   4 pm  886-2130  V-  Make your 1st Computer last  in this library," Marie says.  The staff is presently  developing a particularly good  collection of large-format art  books, the kind that invite the  browser to spend a pleasant  hour or two at a quiet convenient table. The volunteer  staff is more than pleased to  assist library users to find  books, so don't be afraid to  ask what new books are in  or where you might find a  book on a special subject.  Marie says the library also has  a very close and co-operative  association with Chatelech  Junior Secondary School Librarian Murrie Redman, which  allows members of the Sechelt  Library to use school library  books on the school premises.  Marie Montgomery and the  staff of the Sechelt Library  aren't the only ones to have  noticed the library's slow but  steady growth. Membership  in the library has risen from  209 paid members in 1979 to  250 in 1980. The problem of  space is obvious even to a  casual observer and the  library has attempted to turn a  disadvantage into an advantage by weeding out books  that have not been taken out in  over two years and holding  a book sale. The sales have  been successful fund-raisers  for the library and another is  planned for early this summer,  so keep an  eye  out.  Sechelt Council has noted  the library's growth problems  and has suggested the sale of  the lot presently occupied by  the library to finance the  building of a new library on  the lot adjacent, also owned  by the village.  Sechelt historian and former  librarian Helen Dawe has  expressed the view that both  lots should be preserved for  the future expansion of both  the library and the village  Archives, another important  and often overlooked function  of the library.  Both Helen Dawe and  council agree on one point,  Coast News, March 10, 1981  crojrea***  PLACING & FINISHING  PATIOS - DKIVEWAtS ��� t'LOOHS    Ml Tum ��1 Cwmth (....*.

There is a considerable  amount of unorganized material in the archives which  needs to be sorted and catalogued as soon as available  space and proper conditions  for storage can be created.  (It occurs to me that council  might be wise to seek the services ofa student in the library  sciences field, under the  auspices of the Canada Youth  Employment Program, to help  with this material. Students  who wish to go into museum  work in particular are always  looking to acquire experience  in their rather narrow field  and this might be a way of  killing two birds with one  stone).  The library staff is also  considering the formation of a  Library Association, made of  the library membership, to  elect officers and take some of  the pressure off the dozen or  so volunteers who actually  operate the library.  A good library is a quiet  cornerstone of any community. A membership in the  Sechelt Library costs $2 per  year, with children under  sixteen included on a parent's  card. That, as you might guess  after a visit to a bookstore  these days, is a hell of a  bargain.  Next week: Gibsons Library.  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Ordinary People by Judith Guest, Ballantine  The Final Conflict by Gordon McCill, Signet  Like Corn Flakes, some books are best sellers but have little  substance. Today's two paperbacks are "junk food" reading. The  satisfaction they provide is short lived.  Ordinary People was successful as a cameo film for MTM.  while The Final Conflict laboriously ended the Omen trilogy.  Ordinary Peopleisa tale of family breakdown after the accidental  death of a son. The Final Conflict is just another devil cult flick,  with no new devils to spark it up.  Mary Tyler Moore starred in the mother role of the film  Ordinary People. In the book she is part of the wallpaper in a tale  which relates the slow return to normalcy of a teenager who has  been committed to an institution after a suicide attempt. Con, the  younger son, feels it hard to carry on alone for a brother whom he  has hero-worshipped. Con's mother cannot bear the sight of him  after her first loss, and it is only Con's zany psychiatrist who helps  him back to the real world.  The jacket of the novel calls it one "for all ages", but it is  basically a juvenile tale aimed at adolescents. Adults interested in  teenagers will find it rewarding for the insight it provides into teen  concepts versus adult ones.  After reading The Final Conflict, one is thankful that it ends the  Omen books. Damien has grown up to become corporate boss of  the Thorn empire. His plan to conquer the world for his nether  god goes awry when the seven daggers are found and miraculously  end up in the hands of his adversary. Father De Carlo. The good  Father summons up six Brothers who have little else going for  them but dedication and devotion as one-by-one they are picked  off when they try to do away with Damien. Beautiful single parent  TV newscaster Kate finally does him in when he least expects it.  Going the way of most series sets, the first one is best and the  rest are all downhill from there. Expansive adjectives found on the  cover are "blooding freezing conclusion" and "chilling climax".  My assessment is Ho Hum.  In a world of rapid  . change, the APPLE II  : BUSINESS COMPUTER is unique.'  Unlike other companies, Apple has  designed their computer so it won't become  "obsolete" a day after you've paid it off.

The Ministry of Education  rejected the School Board's  request for funding for a  full-sized gym. in effect telling  them "they'd dug themselves  into a hole and it was up to  them to get themselves out of  it."  The School Board converted the School's activity'  room into two classrooms last  summer with the approval of  the Ministry. The $91,000  saved by not building two new  classrooms was to go toward  the community hall/gymnasium joint use facility to be built  behind the School.  But the tenders came in so  much higher than estimated  that it was decided the School  Board would have to put in  more money if the School was  to have a gym. And under the  new regulations the School  would be eligible for a full-  sized gym so it wa> put on the  budget for Capital Expenditure Projects as a high  priority item.  Last week the Ministry  scotched that idea. They said  the new regulations apply only  to new schools, or schools  such as Davis Bay and West  Sechelt which are expanding.  There is not enough money to  upgrade the gymnasiums of  all existing schools in the  Province. That will have to  wait two or three years at  least.  The fact that Roberts Creek  has no gym at all makes no  difference - the Board chose to  convert it into classrooms. Nor  will the Ministry approve  funds for even a half-size  gym or what we had before.  Some more money may be  made available if the building  is made considerably smaller  and cheaper. But that would  eliminate the features important to community use and  may mean the withdrawal of  joint use funds.  A meeting ofa committee of  School Board. Regional Board  and community representatives was scheduled for  yesterday (Monday) to discuss  the situation. But isn't it also  time for all those parents  who've been grumbling about  their kids not having a gym  to get together and make their  feelings known?  Annual meeting.  Next Wednesday, March  18, is the annual meeting and  election of officers for  the Community Association.  There should be some discussion and explanation of the  situation regarding the hall/  gymnasium project so plan to  attend. Meeting starts at 8  at the Community Hall.  Due settled.  Custody of Roberts Creek  Daze was settled last week.  It was decided that the Ways  and Means Committee and the  Hall Committee would cooperate in the organization of  the Daze and split the profits  equally between the two  Committees.

This Saturday the Ladies  Auxiliary is holding a St.  Patrick's Day Tea at the  Legion Hall from 11 'til 2.  There'll be a bake table, white  elephants, plants and a sharc-  ihe-proceeds bingo. The draw  on the raffle will be postponed until April 18.  Arrangements were being  made for live music that night  so wear a bit o' the green and  come for one of Ernie's  famous concoctions.  Softball starts.  It must be spring - the  Ladies Softball Team is  starting practices this Sunday.  They're looking for new  players - a lot have "retired"  this year. They've always  been a "winning" team in  the past but they try to keep it  fun. The game against the  CBC "Beachcombers" at Roberts Creek Daze is the  highlight    of    the    season.  You don't have to live in the  Creek but you must be female  and 19 or over, (there's a team  for under 19's being organized  in Gibsons), so if you're  interested, come out this  Sunday. March 15, at 12 noon  at the Roberts Creek School.  Bring your ball glove.  Fire executive.  We noted the election of a  new chief for the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department some weeks ago, but  neglected to mention the rest  of the new executive. Here are  the officers elected at the 1981  annual meeting: Dennis Mulligan, Chief; Andy Dube,  Captain; Edna Naylor, First  Lieutenant; Bob Talbot, Second Lieutenant; Philip Gordon, Treasurer; Clive Hall,  Secretary; Gerry Willoughby,  Steward and Dave Parry,  Chairman.  Films continue.  The family film series at  Roberts Creek Elementary has  been extended for another two  weeks. This Friday's feature  is "The 5000 Fingers of Dr.  T", a fantasy devised by Dr.  Seuss. Show starts at  7:30  in the School Library.  Thursday   night   volleyball.  Nobody feels the lack of a  gym at Roberts Creek this  year more than the Thursday  night volleyball crowd. But  now Pat Perry has offered the  use of his gym and volleyball  will be happening Thursday  nights starting at 7:30 if  enough people show up.  Call Britt Varcoe at 885-34%  if you're "seriously interested".  New Horizons.  A meeting of the New  Horizons Committee was held  on Tuesday, March 3, with  several items on the agenda.  First the date of the final  meeting of the spring session  was set for Monday, March  .10, commencing at 12:30 with  a lunch, followed by a session  of Bingo, then the usual  activities. A "work party"  will meet at the Hall on  Sunday March 29 at 11 a.m.  to prepare for the occasion.  Recent suggestions from  members indicated a desire to  change the present arrangement of electing committee  members by appointment to  the more usual practice  of yearly open elections by  ballot. It was moved and  passed that a general election  of a New Horizons Committee  be held on Monday, March 23,  at the regular meeting. This  will permit an opportunity to  elect new recruits, add new  blood and ideas and relieve  the "old faithfuls" from the  duties they have performed  for so long. All members are  requested, therefore, to prepare themselves to nominate  new candidates and, in turn,  be prepared to accept nominations and assume such responsibilities.  In a similar vein, members  voiced the issue of changing  the present status of the  Elphinstone New Horizons  group to a Roberts Creek  branch of some larger organization such as the A.O.P.  With this in view, Mrs. Olson  of Madeira Park has been  invited to address the meeting  on Monday, March 16, on this  subject so that the membership may be fully informed as  to what is involved in such a  move.  Another suggestion was the  creation of an office of Press  Correspondent. This duty has  been performed by the President for the last four years.  Also raised was the advisability of changing the present  Monday meeting day to some  other if found suitable to all.  It is hoped that the above will  help stimulate more interest  and attract new members in  the area to this local community group.

Doug very generously  spent Friday evening after  work atop his Case 1816  Uni-loader. It's not really that  old but it does a lot of work for  such a little guy.  The next step is to get a  45 gallon incinerator set up  and for everyone to keep the  area around the hall and our  picnic area looking as good as  it does now.  The next working detail  seen trucking around town  was six of the littler kids from  school, supervised by their  student teacher Sandy Cover-  dale, picking up garbage.  The word is, it was a punishment of some kind but I'm  sure that's just a rumour.  Lastly, our neighbours,  Gene and Vi Berntzen have  been putting us all to shame  with the work they've done  around their place with picks,  shovels, rakes and elbow  grease.  Wendy Cunningham of  Fisheries fame phoned to  say that after all these months  clams and oysters are finally  open. Watch it, though,  because butter clams are still  closed. They're the larger  ones where the lines run  across the shell as opposed to  the smaller Littlenecks where  the lines run up and down.  The limits are 25 clams and  15 oysters per person per  day, or '/; litre shucked  oysters. The prawn closure  was waived for our area this  year. In a way, that's a pity as  I was through the rapids this  week and saw a large five-man  boat pulling hundreds of  traps. The local boys say  they're having a hard time  finding a hole to fish in and  it's no wonder.  Chris Angus and his family  just returned very brown from  three weeks in Hawaii.

How right it wasl  It also emphasized I would  become more tolerant and  understanding, this I can only  hope for. I usually read  horoscopes and then forget  them, this week I need all the  help I can get.  When I first started to write  the odd column for the Coast  News, my main objective was  to create stimulus to local  issues by giving personal  opinions on various happenings and trying to let  the public know both sides of  the situation. Since I'm your  average taxpayer and felt  certain questions needed answering, I hoped it would  be of interest to the general  public. I hoped people would  reply on the same basis  and use the column to counteract and, when necessary,  criticize some of my thoughts  and statements.  Rather than write, a lot of  people have mentioned and  questioned my theories in  person, which I feel is healthy  and great; it's what our world  is all about. (Only one person  felt threatened enough to be  personally insulting). This is  the reason we have a democratic vote, to be able to  change things if the majority  wills it. It's not always perfect,  but until something better  comes along, why change it?  In some cases, even if your  local representative is working  for you, it may have to be  considered by a board that is  not receptive to change and,  unless you hold a high card  the rest of the board wants,  it's too bad Jack, for your  area. At meetings held by the  School Board and Regional  Board, I always come away  with the feeling of "us"  against "them"; one area  worrying the other will get  something over the other.  Compromise is only considered as the last weak  resort. What a shame, so  much could be done for each  area.  Maybe I've just been at the  bad meetings. When I see our  area contributing a large  amount of the taxes and not  getting much in return,  (Area A is the second largest  tax contributor next to Port  Mellon which has the mill,  not bad when you consider a  1% million budget.) I feel we  could be much better if we  were formed into a Village or  municipality. The Chamber of  Commerce is going to be  looking into this idea, so 1 will  share with you information  for and against the plan. After  all, we would be building and  preserving our own area with  our own taxes, making our  own decisions, instead of six  directors down the road.  This may be the right time to  look into it.

The onset of  puberty, the relinquishing of  childhood pleasures, the struggle against parental dominance, the search for  identity and the loneliness  experienced even in the midst  of a crowd all combine to make  the adolescent period difficult  in extreme.  In olden days and in many  societies. this transition  period from child to man is  mercifully brief. In Western  civilizations of modern times,  society has seen fit to keep its  youth in teen-age limbo for  years and years and years. A  hedonistic subculture has developed to the point that the  aim of most parents and  offspring is survival. Parents  of young children look toward  the teen years with apprehension, and hope and pray  that their family can come  through those turbulent times  unscathed and somehow still  loving and respecting each  other.  Morally and socially the  adult world is becoming less  and less able to cope with a  value system that is embracing divorce, common-law  relationships, abortion on  demand, child abuse, racial  problems, job dissatisfaction,  unemployment, lack of respect  for authority, desires of  women for independence and,  sexual deviance. No longer  does "father know best".  No longer is mother a sweet,  innocent home-body, the paragon of virtue no one would  ever hurt by word or deed.  At a time in history when  life expectancy is increasing  far past the traditional three  score years and ten, our youth  seems intent upon a lemminglike self destruction, trying to  crowd every sensory experience into those years of  precious youth. Their life styles are copies largely from television's unreal Americana;  they are willing victims of the  media advertising. Booze,  drugs, sex and cars preoccupy  much of their time. They  isolate themselves from the  very young, the very old, and  most of all from their parents'  society.  Senior high school does not  help them break out of their  self-imposed prison. It is a  bore, a drag, for almost every  adolescent consulted. Knowledge-rich, action-poor, a petty dictatorship that prepares  kids for neither life nor  university, the last two years  are especially difficult for  pupils and teachers. Many  kids hang in there for that one  big festive event known as  graduation. The hundreds of  thousands of dollars raised by  Grade   12  students  in   this  province for "grad" would  feed an African village for  ten years.  In some places, graduation  is called optimistically "commencement". For our youngsters, it is not commencement. After grad looms the  dark. Most do not see themselves fitting into the economy  except into menial and deadend jobs. They see themselves  presented with a myriad of  lack-lustre and dead-end options by a world that seems so  closed, so impersonal, so  hard, cold and indifferent that  the individual literally does  not know where to head in or  how to start. So live it upl  Graduation, here we cornel  We older Canadians are  failing our youth. We criticize  them freely, but we have  failed to sit down with them to  do the social planning that  could change the present  patterns. We have not involved them in a dream of a  great and prosperous Canada.  We are schooling them too  long, educating them not at all  and turning them loose to  become labourers for giant  corporations who are ripping  out our non-renewable super  natural resources to bring  prosperity to foreign lands.  We are sending them to their  "grad" with inadequate English, a smattering of French,  some useless algebra and geometry, a vague sense of geo-  IMPORTANT NOTICE  TO EMPLOYERS  This year the Province of British Columbia  is again offering to help employers open up  new jobs for young people.

And they are all  so young, so worthwhile, so  vulnerable.  Why don't we terminate  compulsory high school at  Grade Ten and from then on  support these citizens of the  future on a comprehensive  work/study, work/experience  program?    Every    teenager  would be given every opportunity to excell, to study, to  move into the adult world as  a journeyman, a professional,  a skilled producer. Such a  program would involve travel,  exchanges and much counselling. Youth would come off  pension into the salaried  classes as soon as their  educational and vocational  goal was reached, through  trade school, art school,  business education, university. Being young would be a  marvellous adventure. What a  Canada we could develop if  we enabled our youth to  participate and learn by  doing!  To be sure, and to their  credit, many youngsters make  it now, in spite of all the  obstructions we put in their  way, but far too many are  destroyed and become a  burden on society, a shameful  waste in a wealthy land that  needs all the brain and  brawn it can muster.

Tim Berdays needs help  Coast News, March 10, 1981  SUNCO  by Maryanne West  I suppose it's a sign of the  times and it's sad to see the  Forestry Service HQ in Sechelt  replace its picturesque white  picket fence with a steel mesh  security fence. Wouldn't it  be nice if they would grow  roses or honeysuckle along it?  Perhaps we can donate some  cuttings?  And how one misses the  attractive old Whitaker building.  ��� ��� ���  Apropos of escalating  school costs I never have  ' understood why we take  ; often exceptional teachers out  of the classroom and promote  them to administrative positions. We then pay them  twice as much for a job for  which they are not qualified  and may even be temperamentally unsuited and deprive  the children of a first rate  teacher. It would be much  simpler and probably more  efficient to have the administration looked after by an  office manager. With today's  sophisticated technology one  person could most likely  administer all the schools in  the district from a central  office, leaving the Principal  to teach and be the team  leader and inspiration of his/  her staff.  ��� ��� *  Another educational practice which has always seemed  to me to be behind the times,  is that learning to type is not a  core skill, taught in the..  Elementary School. It's one of  the few immediately marketable skills taught in school  and is offered only as an elective in High School from  Grade 9. Too often students  who need summer jobs to  finance their attendance at  university are without such a  skill because their academic  studies do not allow time for  typing instruction.  Now in the age of computers  which use a typewriter-type  keyboard it will become even  more important to be able to  type efficiently.  Typing is a skill which increases co-ordination and dexterity and is considered to be  an aid to learning to spell  correctly as well and may well  be something which younger  children would enjoy without  being detrimental to their  ability to write by hand.  Touch typing is like riding a  bicycle, once you've mastered  the art you can pick it up  again after many years without much difficulty.  ��� ��� ���  I notice that most elementary schools now have student  councils patterned after those  in High School, even to  producing a school year book.  Now obviously children should  be encouraged to help organize school activities and  learn to take responsibility,  but it seems to me a pity to  mimic senior functions at the  elementary level. By the time  these students get to High  School student council and  similar activities will be all old  hat and the kids will then need  to up the ante.  Children surely aren't just  miniature adults and childhood is such a fleeting and  important time of life that we  shouldn't rob them of it by  encouraging them to grow up  too fast. Before we know it  we'll have our kindergarteners  "graduating" with inappropriate ceremonies.  ��� * *  A lady phoned into CJOR  recently to tell Rafe Mair how  odd she found it that although  she rarely agreed with any of  his pronouncements when he  was a politician in Victoria,  since he has become a talk-  show host she finds him most  reasonablel I'm not a talk-  show addict. I've little use for  abrasive ego-trippers and  rarely listened to CJOR. 1  have to agree with the lady  though, Rafe Mair is a good  broadcaster. He discusses a  wide spectrum of issues, often  in depth, doesn't take himself  too seriously and, most  importantly, treats both his  guests and listeners as intelligent equals and the show  has a relaxed rational feel to  it, which hopefully the powers  that be at the station won't  change to the former frenetic  style.  ��� ���        ���  Responses to the "mutt-  erings" in this space are  always interesting.

You think  that the last one was the best  ever, then comes another  evening which turns out to be  even better. Like for instance  the Hard Times affair which  was held on February 28th  at the hall - it was a howling  success - in more ways than  one I The dinner was, as usual,  most delicious, thanks mainly  to the convenor of the affair,  Eileen Greaves, ably assisted  by a group of the ladies who  are the best cooks in the  world I  One of the highlights of the  evening was the rousing  chorus of "Happy Birthday"  to Vince Shannon who was  thoroughly surprised when a  huge birthday cake appeared  on the scene in his honour.  As usual, Sylvia from Shop  Easy did an outstanding job  of the cake decoration - the  motif being, very suitably, a  camper van. Vince is one of  the group who has done a  great deal towards the origin  and the running of the hall  right from the start.  These people are a very  valuable commodity in this  area and we really do treasure  them and will be ever grateful  that they helped to establish  this little hall which sees so  many happy hours.  The very amiable and happy  MC for the dance was Chas.  Hobbs and music was provided by Paul Hansen who  must go home with raw  fingers from playing non-stop  for hours. There was a wterd  and wonderful array of costumes and it was a really hard  task for judges Vince and  Mary Shannon to decide on  the prize winners. So it turned  out that there were three  ladies worthy of the valuable  prizes which comprised such  treasures as "Certificate for  Dinner for Two" which turned  out to be a can of beans.  The three gals were Ronnie  Dunn, Mary Ewan and Eunice  Keeler.  The same thing happened  when it came to judging the  men and there were three  winners - Al Lawson, Bill  Ewan and Neil Adams. It  turned  out  to  be   "Talent  TOYS * HOBBIES  Ural  rest Mall, Gibsons  Come & see our  MODEL DISPLAVI  886-8412  Night" at Welcome Beach too,  as several local male vocalists  had turns at the mike rendering their favourite numbers  proving that there is a great  abundance of really great  talent right here on Redrooffs I  Next Film Night Much  26th:  It should be a pleasant  evening of slides on March  26th as a change from the  movies when the Lawsons  Eureka will give a showing  their very beautiful slides of  their trips to Portugal, Spain,  Israel and Yugoslavia.

This  will be a kind of "Drop In"  affair - no dinner this time -  just an evening of fun and  dancing to which everyone  will be most welcome. Price  will be just two dollars and the  evening will start somewhere  around 8:30. Don't forget to  keep this in mind and to round  up your friends and come  along.

Big John Hindson and I had  been running the show that  year and we had brought in  Copper Canyon Sal to do her  famous spar tree climbing act.  She had put on one hell of a  show and Tim had fallen madly  in love with her. But Sal had  chosen the big money of the  major shows down south and  had dropped out of Tim's life.  And by the sound of it he was  still carrying the torch.  My friend John had taken a  good job with the WCB as an  APO and was jazzing around  the country doing his accident  prevention job in the woods.  My life style has been  changed somewhat in the past  year so I must drop out. I tried  to placate him by telling my  side of the story.  "Well, Tim", 1 philosphized,  "Things change, you know.  When I put Lucy on steady I  sort of promised to share our  time and keep the weeds down  and cut the grass. But when we  moved to Sechelt I became a  'joiner' and became involved in  many things. I enjoyed it while  1 was doing it but now it's  somebody else's turn. It's too  late in life to break in a new  cook and bedmate. I'm quitting  while I'm ahead!"  "Val, ay suppose yoo vas  right. Ay vas hopin' dat yoo  could bring Sal in fer anudder  show an' ve could hoist some  climbin oil as she called it, an'  who knows���mebbe she's tarred o' climbin dem yankee  poles!"  He downed another slug ofa  fresh round that had just  arrived but he was looking at  me kind of funny and getting  that fish eye again so I figured it  was time for me to get out of  there. There's nothing worse  than losing a friend by overstaying one's hospitality!  It would be a shame for poor  old Tim to lose out on his  popularity just when he has  things going for him. And who  knows, maybe Copper Canyon  Sal would be available this year  if she were contacted. I have her  number if someone would take  over and like to give her a call.  And don't think you have to  be a big, husky he-man to take  on the job of organizing  Loggers Sports. Diamond Lil  Fraser did it one year and did a  hangup job. Some of you gals  with logger husbands should  give it a whirl!  Just call Carl at 885-5200.

Beat it until it's light and fluffy.  Creep up to your fridge and extract two eggs. Beat them in an add  half a teaspoon of richest vanilla.  Into a bowl, sift one and a half cups of flour, half a cup of ever so  expensive cocoa, two and a half teaspoons of baking powder and  half a teaspoon of salt. Stir them in alternately with a cup of creamy  milk then pour the whole sinful lot into the cake pans and bake them  at 350�� F for 30 ��� 35 minutes.  Let them cool, then into the middle spread the richest,  fatteningest filling you can invent. Slink away to a secret hide-away  and enjoy!  !���;,     ....

Basic  Pancake Batter  1 1/4 cups flour  3 eggs  1 1/4 cups milk  1/2 teaspoon salt  3 tablespoons melted butter  Blend all ingredients in a blender or with a whisk until quite  smooth. Refrigerate for at least two hours.  To make the most successful pancakes always use the same  frying pan and never use your pancake pan (or other food. Don't  wash the pan, just wipe it out with a paper towel.  When you are ready to make the pancakes, grease the pan lightly  with a little oil. Make sure the pan is really hot. Pour about two  tablespoons of batter into the pan then tilt it so that the batter is  evenly distributed. The pancake should be paper thin. Give each  side just under a minute to brown.  To keep pancakes warm have a pot of boiling water covered with a  plate. As the pancakes cook place them on the plate and cover with  another plate or bowl.  iilillillli))^^  Day by day, Item by Item, m do more fe you in  providing uariety, Quality an ^ friendly irulce.

"v s����g! jdfli  ���  SHOP  By Bill Edney  Something New Has Been Added  ���  *L*\   *m    ^      *     w     itj  We have been appointed agents for Gibsons and district for  The Pop Shoppe pop products. I think most everyone would  hartily agree that the price of pop has risen to heights that  make it pretty costly as a favourite family drink, or for party-  time mixers. The regular price of 24- 10oz. bottles will be $5.00  per case, plus $4.00 refundable deposit. The large bottles are  850 mil which is the equivalent of 30 oz., 100 mil larger than  other lines, at a cost of $5.50 per case of 12. These prices work  out to roughly 21C for 10 oz. and 46C for 30 oz. bottles, plus  deposit. We will Mil by the case only.  As part of our investigation into the acceptance of this  agency we discovered that the Pop Shoppe started out as a  small family enterprise. The business was started as recently  as 1969 in London, Ontario by Pop, his son, a C.A. and his son-  in-law a bottler.  The story as we got it is���Father had a Coke bottling  franchise in North Bay. One day he decided that he wanted to  bottle and sell other flavours. Rights were refused so he, his  son and son-in-law split off on their own. This was in the days  when they could turn out pop at 5C a bottle and still make a  huge profit.  The venture was so successful that they next opened up in  Toronto. Then they started selling franchises.  In 1971 they opened a franchise in Edmonton, highly  successful, and then opened one in Vancouver in November  1972.  There have been many stories such as this where initiative  and enterprise on the part of individuals or families have  become successful ventures. A friend and former co- -  employee, for example, set up the TRI-V pet food operation in  Chilliwack. I like these success stories, originated by ordinary  folk who saw a need, took their chances, worked hard and  became successful, and they have my full support whenever  possible.  Because of the nature of The Pop Shoppe agency and the  low selling price, we must insist on case lot sales only. You may  mix or match a case any way you like.  I realize full well that Pop Shoppe products have been  available on the Sunshine Coast for some time. We hope to do  a better job of distribution for the benefit of our customers,  ourselves and the bottler. We believe the time is at hand for  acceptance of a good, lower-priced drink or mixer.  We will continue to sell other lines, as required by our  customers, particularly those distributed locally by Mr.  Clements.  V  e  1. Cul out ihis Coupon  2. Attach lo your Sales Slip *:  3.

Next week our men golfers  journey to Gleneagles for the  first inter-club match of the  year.  The installation of the new  water sprinkler system has  been scheduled to commence  this week. It is expected  this will overcome the problem  of dry  fairways  and  burnt  grass   during   hot    periods  this summer.  The Greens Committee is  removing the Alder tree at the  junction of #4-5-6 fairways.  Those members who desire to  secure some firewood should  get in touch with Art Park  for details.  Slow progress in the construction of the maintenance  building is being experienced  due to the necessity of securing competitive bids.  In a do or die situation for  Roberts Creek, trailing 1-0 in  their best of three SCMHL  semi-final series with Mitten  Realty, The Blue came  through in what seems to be  traditional fashion, outplaying  and out scoring the Flames  7-5.  Leading the way for The  Creek with 4 goals was Kim  Newcomer.  The Bluesjumped out into a  2-0 first period lead only to  have the talented, young  Flames tie the score 2-2 by  the end of the second stanza  setting the stage for a very  exciting final.  The teams exchanged a pair  of goals each to keep things  equal midway through the  third period. It was three  quick goals, 2 by Newcomer,  which spelled defeat for the  Flames and victory for the  Creek.

On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Further to last week's subject, smoked fish. It may be  useful to our readers to have  some recipes for smoking fish  at home in a home-made  smoker.  The best way to prepare the  larger varieties like cod or  salmon is to cut the fish in two  or three sections, split down  from the back bone and remove  bones. These pieces can then be  cut into smaller portions that  are easier to handle and more  convenient for cooking and  serving. Trim off all ragged  edges, wash thoroughly, and let  drain.  Using a container (crock,  plastic bucket but not aluminum) large enough to immerse the fish in a brine  solution. One simple-brine can  be made with 'A cup of salt  (course salt with no added  ingredients is best), '/; cup of  sugar (I prefer honey). Dissolve  the above ingredients in I quart  of water and you may add  various herbs and spices if you  wish. A portion of the water  can be warmed in order to  dissolve the salt etc. Brine the  fish in a cool place, overnight  or 4-6 hours for thin pieces,  thick chunks 8-12 hours.  Next, remove the fish from  the brine and rinse thoroughly  under cold water. Pat dry with  paper toweling and allow to air  dry for about I hour or until a  glaze forms on the surface of  the fish.  While waiting for the fish to  glaze get your smoker ready.  Clean racks and drip pan and  spray with a non-stick coating.  The smoker should be located  outside in a sheltered area so  that the important heat will not  be reduced by the wind.  Place the fish on the racks in  your smoker and ignite the fuel  (wood chips from alder, wild  cherry etc.) A good amount of  smoke is needed for about one  hour. It is not necessary to  have a dense smoke for the  whole drying period, it depends  on your personal preference.  Smoking time varies with the  size of the portions of fish. Thin  fillets will take about 4 hours.  Thick pieces will require 8-10  hours. Check the progress from  time to time. A warm smoker  will produce a rich coloured,  flaky, ready-to-eat barbecued  type of fish; a cool drying and  smoking process will give you a  product ready for poaching or  freezing.  There are many variations to  this basic method that I have  ELECTRMCS  885-2568  The 4th Annual  APRIL FOOL'S DAY RUN  Gibsons  to  Sechelt /  >(C'��'l T    /./VV^rdSP���  Sunday,  March 29th  9:30 am.

Inglis  The church today faces the  problem of the lure of the siren  call of the market place, as  never before in its history.  The "little brown church in  the wildwood," to which people  would struggle through snowdrifts, blizzards and mud holes  to worship in on a Sunday  morning, has become as passe  and archaic as the peace and  quiet of the worship that took  place there.  Today's church is a highly  visible entity, competing in a  tough and demanding world  against a host of diverting  forces for the attention of  believers, competing against  the open road, the beckoning  back country, the golden  beaches, the glittering sporting  events, the myriad leisure  activities, and the all-encompassing variety of religious  activities themselves.  Today's instant transportation, global communication  links, endless diversity of  Sunday morning "happenings", have rendered the church's role into something of a  hangover from the past, a  quaint method of spending a  precious Sunday morning,  indulged in largely by hidebound traditionalists who have  not yet moved fully into the  20th century.  This may appear to be  somewhat exaggerated, but the  bitter fact is that this somewhat  The siren call of  the marketplace  secular view of the competitive  market is actually carried right  into the boards which govern  the church's congregations,  particularly on the North  American scene.  The result of such a view may  work itself out in several ways,  but one of the most unfortunate is to be found in the  iconoclastic behaviour of church boards who try to disguise  the church structure and functions in such fashion that it will  lure in unsuspecting young  people under false pretences.  The name of this game is  "camouflage"!  Try to get away from those  revealing steeples and spires  which say to all the world a  church stands here!  Try to make the church as  stream-lined and modern in its  appearance as possible; remove  all those dark woods and  Christian artifacts; bring the  pulpit down to floor-level and  make it look like part of the  furniture.  Banish all the grand old  hymns and replace them with  simple and repetitive ditties  suitable for guitar; remove all  sense of "authority" from the  service, and from the appearance of the church's leaders in dress, style and manners; encourage and stimulate  input and "sharing" in theological, doctrinal and ecclesiastical discussions and take  seriously all recommendations  for alterning the worship style.

The reception to these innovative answers to the decline  in interest in church worship  has been largely indeterminate,  since it would take a lengthy  study of a broad spectrum of  congregations offering varying  degrees of differences, from the  luke-warm to the radical, and  there would still be many  variables, such as the extreme  mobility of people today, to  upset the findings' value.  However, there are some  factors which are constant, and  it does appear to many of us  who look at this problem  seriously, that these factors  should be held uppermost in  the minds of the movers and  changers.  The first is a sense of  reverence, without which worship becomes simply a recreational alternative to any  other Sunday morning activity.  Reverence is an ugly word to  many of the "now generation"  and its descendants, and therefore needs to be taught constantly in order that it may  continue as a tradition in a  church which was founded on  free, voluntary, and thankful  reverence for the abounding  love, mercy and care of the God  who is being worshipped.  Secondly, there is respect,  another hard word to so many  young people today, but a word  which describes a quality which  produces clean and healthy  relationships, free of guilt and  burdensome envy and jealousy.  Once agains, the word respect in all of its positive  connotations, must be taught  ���:. nstantly so that new generations will understand the need  for respect���respect for the  traditions of our fathers���to  aid in the painful transitions  from each succeeding age's  knowledge by manageable  means.  Finally, in addition to reverence, respect, there should be  added another uncomfortable  word, "authority".  If reverence and respect are  unwelcome guests in so many  young people's lives, then  authority is a positive ogre!  But authority, when properly understood and embraced, lifts us out of thestagae  of "knee-jerk responses", into  the status of thoughtful and  meaningful activity.  If authority is properly  understood, we will realize that  there is virtually nothing we do  in life without some authority  or another, whether understood, implied, or fully accepted.  Within the limits of authority, we may move freely if we  have the respect and reverence  for that authority as being a  loving, gentle, understanding  force, who has our every  interest at heart.  If we have all three qualities  uppermost when we worship,  then the manner in which we  worship becomes simply the  vehicle which facilitates the  movement of our time together, before him whom we  worship.  It will also greatly influence  our desire to worship!  UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA  NEW DIRECTORY  MINISTER: Rev.

McCarthy, Minister  warn  ���MM Prilling for oil  Coast Naturalists  by John Hind-Smith  : I heard on the radio lately  lhat the B.C. Government is  negotiating with the Chevron  bil Company to allow that  company to test-drill for oil in  ihe offshore waters of B.C.  Are things any different now  than they were the last time  Ihis was proposed and a  moratorium was put on it?  1 rather doubt it, technologically   speaking   anyway.  Ihe example of the oil well  blow out off the coast of Texas  and Mexico last year should  make any thinking person  question whether it is worth  taking such risks on the B.C.  coast. Here we are on the one  band lighting the transportation of oil by tankers down  the coast in the fear that there  will be a major disaster which  could affect hundreds of miles  of our beautiful coast line,  killing thousands of birds,  animals and plants, ruining  the fish spawning grounds  and recreation areas and then  on the other hand talking to a  major oil company about  drilling for oil in the same  waters. The whole thing is  just another example of the  illogical "reasoning" of the  Socred government. I guess  it's a case of money interests  coming before everything  else, common sense included.  Just this last week Dr. Ken  Hall of U.B.C, who has  studied the Fraser delta for  the past ten years or so, gave  a talk and slide presentation  lo the Marsh Society and  explained the delicate balance  lhat exists in such a system.  He gave many examples of the  way man can create havoc by  his thoughtless dumping of  deleterious materials into the  waters and the government's  apparent lack of action in  prosecuting those concerned.  It really does not seem to  matter how good the technology is, accidents can still  happen and it only needs one  to create a disaster many  times greater than anything  we have ever seen on the B.C.  coast. Once it has happened  there is no return and for  years the effects will be with  us. Perhaps in years to come  the technology will have  advanced to such a point that  the chances of accidents are  minimized considerably. Most  of these accidents are caused  by Vicld deBoer  The next time you are]  near a stream keep your eyes|  open for an unusual little grey,  wren-like bird called the  Dipper. This plain looking  little bird is unique in that he  is the only perching bird that  is aquatic. You can recognize  him on land by his habit of  bobbing his body up and down  by bending and flexing his  knee joints. In the air he is a  very swift flier and is often  seen whizzing down a creek  bed, often over a turbulent  stretch of water too rough for  foraging.  It's when you see him in the  water that you know for sure  you are watching a Dipper.  As you watch this incredible  little bird he will flit about the  rocks and boulders, walking  by human error rather than  mechanical failure, so one can  assume that such operations  will never be 100% safe.  However, our knowledge is  growing all the time and it  would seem reasonable to  suggest that if there is oil  out there it will still be there  for us to use in years to come,  so why not let it stay for  a while longer? After all, it has  been there for millions of  years and a few more are not  going to make too much difference. I would like to  suggest that if you are concerned about this matter you  should write to the Hon. R.

Another  remarkable adaptation is that  his 'third eyelid' (nictitating  membrane) is transparent,  so he can still see with his eyes  closed under water and there  are movable flaps over the  nostrils to keep the water out.  A pair of Dippers usually  establish a territory covering  about 'A-'/i miles of stream.  Nests are made in banks or  cliffs overlooking the water.

Water beetles, crustaceans, worms and molluscs  are also eaten and Dippers can  catch minnows and newts. He  searches for these tidbits  among the boulders or along  the stream bed and will also  stand on a submerged boulder  and catch small creatures as  they float by.

He has been  working there for seven years.  He drew the original plans for  the gardens now circling the  new wing and upon presenting  them to the board was told to  get on with the job.  Most of us would have been  intimidated by the thought of  such a major and public project  but Ted just went to work and  eighteen months later he is still  planting and planning but the  shape is there and the effect is  lovely. Massed heathers fatten  one section and clustered bulbs  another. Every possible type of  flowering tree and shrub is  charmingly placed and just  ready to pop. There are little  walks, benches and arbours to  enjoy. Compared to city hospitals in traffic laden downtown  areas, our sick are fortunate to  be cared for where there is a  beautiful view from every  window.  Many of the shrubs and  plants have been donated by  grateful patients, their relatives, board members and the  Ladies' Auxiliaries. There is a  cluster of what must be the  most Northerly growing outdoor Palm trees by the Hospital's attractive entrance.  Even if you don't have a  friend to visit in the Hospital  (you can usually find an  unexpected one) it is well worth  a jaunt just to admire the  carefully cared-for splendor  that Ted Gough has created.  Knowing the generous nature of the Sunshine Coast's  giving gardeners I will mention  that Ted is currently on the  lookout for old fashioned  English Primroses. They are  the shorter, single pctalled  variety and are sometimes hard  to find as most people prefer  the more sophisticated, taller,  multiflowered Polyanthus. If  you have any of the small Primroses, please leave them at the  Hospital labelled for Ted  Gough.  It is really nice to know that  Ted is doing sucha great job on  that landscaping because within the next twenty years when  we're all in St. Mary's for one  thing or another, those gardens  are going to help us get better  faster.

In the main, the pros  and cons were business people  and private citizens respectively.  As a businessman myself  I do not agree with the private  citizens who make the claim  that the Sunnycrest Access  will only benefit the business  people. We should get away  from this idea of "them" and  "us". In my view a healthy  business climate is essential to  the good and welfare of the  total community. Healthy  business establishments provide not only efficient public  service but they do much more  than that. They spend the  greater part of their margin of  markup over cost of goods on  other local services and wages  and taxes, etc. etc.  I can see, however, that the  main push for Sunnycrest  comes from real estate promoters and the owners of the  undeveloped property behind  the mall. Some business  people I have talked to,  including fairly influential  ones in the area, say they  don't want all that traffic by  their door to mess up their  local traffic patterns.  This is precisely the reason I  have consistently opposed the  Sunnycrest Access.  We do get a lot of tourist  business and summer trade in  this community - without  which we could not provide  the present level of services  and stay in business. Bat, it  comes not from the through  traffic, or passersby, but from  those who come here to stay,  whether for a day or two, or  more.  As a businessman in this  community I must cater to the  more permanent local trade  and that extra which comes  along, as I have said, which  puts the icing on the cake. It  is therefore not good business  sense to cause traffic congestion which will block off  the mainstay of our existence.  As a merchant in the mall,  I would tend to encourage  traffic patterns and adequate  parking to handle this local  trade, which is ever-increasing.  The government Highways  Department, I am told, would  insist on a crossing over 101  through Davis Road and on  to Gower Point, if the Sunnycrest route is chosen, I can  well sympathize with the local  residents in the area whose  quiet way of life would be  disrupted and for homes  destroyed.  It was suggested at the  council meeting by the proponents of Sunnycrest that the  Village could say 'No', have  them put in traffic lights and  force a right turn from Sunnycrest on to 101 for those who  want to proceed in a westerly  direction. Can you imagine the  lineup of cars waiting at  lights to enter the mall, or exit  in either direction? To me, it is  a ridiculous suggestion!  B.C.

Phone 593-4459  #10  And what about the other  important areas of our com.-  munity - the lower village, ot  the industrial areas? What,  about North Road, which is a  light industry and commercial  area and which could provide  another access either as a  right turn to the Sunnycrest-  Cedars business community,  or straight on down to the  lower village.  It was hinted by Mr. McRae  of Gibsons Realty in his  presentation that, in view of  its length, North Road probably would not be connected  to the by-pass. I say it must be  connected and we should have  some political input, if necessary, to see that it is.  A great deal of "by-pass"  traffic now comes down North  Road, turns right on Reed,  left on Henry and then right  onto 101 to Sechelt.  The developers and proponents of an Access directly  into Sunnycrest could surely  pay for their own link-up to  Reed.  A properly curved right turn  link-up with Reed off a North  Road access would give that  business community its access, for that traffic, singularly needing the services  available there. This would  also lessen the pressure at the  junction  of North  and   101.  I presume we will still have  the lower road into Gibsons  from the ferry, which recently  has at times handled almost  all the traffic. This is the kind  of route (the scenic route) that  the leisurely tourist - the one  who may stop, or stay and  spend some money, would  take. He must ultimately,  then, go past Sunnycrest al  which time with a right turn he  can  enter,   stop  and  shop.  The same holds true of  North Road entrance.  We finally come then to the  point of how many access  routes can we expect to have?  It's taken years and years toi  get to the point of selecting a'  by-pass and access route.  Where will we be ten years  from now in terms of traffic  needs? Some are saying;  'is Payne even far enough  down the road'?  One businessman reminded  me that Kamloops, a city of  over 100,000 people, has  only two access roads off the  by-pass. As Alderman Larry  Trainor says, we simply  can't have them that close,  together, assuming, of course.;  that North Road with its;  ultimate connection to the.  lower village is a must.  I set these thoughts down  for us all to seriously contemplate. We desperately  need a by-pass Now. Let it be  one. While we bicker and  remain divided on this issue  the senior government is not  likely to do anything. Quite  reliable sources have indicated the highway planners  do not favour Sunnycrest - and  probably for much the same  reasons as I outline.  Finally, I want it known that  I have a very high regard for  each and every member of  council. This issue divides us  only as to how each of us looks  at things.  Alderman Bill Edney  Giannakos  commended  Editor:  Gibsons & District Chamber  of Commerce wishes to commend George Giannokos for  his untiring dedication to  supporting the young people in  this area.  Through his efforts the  Sunshine Coast Motorcross  Club has been organized and  has 65 members. They are  preparing for their first Sun-  shine Coast Motorcross event  on March 15th at their track on  leased land off North Road;  This involves young riders;  their parents, and local business people as well as many  groups from other communU  ties.

Coast News, March 10, 1981  Coast Cable says "contract fulfilled"  19  Ed. note: We have received a  copy of the following letter  addreuedto;  The Reverend John Paetkau,  Halfmoon Bay.  Dear Reverend Paetkau:  We are in receipt of your  letter dated February 19,  1981, addressed to the Canadian Radio-Television and  Telecommunications Commission regarding cablevision  service on the Sunshine Coast.  It was with some dismay  that the undersigned read  your letter relevant to the lack  of cable service availability  on Cooper Road and South-  wood in the Halfmoon Bay  area.  This Company has, we  believe, a very good reputation in regard to the extension of services to sparsely  populated areas on the Sunshine Coast.  Your area in particular,  was approved for construction  in December of 1980 but due  to reasons well beyond the  control of Coast Cable Vision  the placement of cable has  been delayed.  The cost of extending cable  distribution plant is currently  running at about $8,000.00  per route mile for capital  costs and our support structure rental for pole line  facilities from B.C. Telephone  is $25.00 per month for that  same mile of plant.  If one allows a 10% depreciation  rate,  applies  an  I MISC. SERVICES  18% cost of money factor, a  10% operating overhead allowance and $300.00 per year  for support structure rental  one soon comes to the realization that at $9.00 per month/  per subscriber the cable  company must have no less  than thirty-one subscribers  per route mile if the operation  is to break even.  With Coast Cable Vision  Limited's average subscriber  density of thirty-five to forty  subscribers per mile of plant  it   becomes   quite   obvious  that we are not limiting our  system expansion to what  some residents have called  the "more lucrative areas"  on the Sunshine Coast.  In fact, it is the Company's  policy to provide service  wherever we can eventually  break even and by doing so we  demonstrate our faith in the  future growth of the area and  thevalueofour service to area  residents.  Reverend Paetkau, we are  sure that because you are now  Boards score minus zero  Editor:  Due to the bureaucratic  bunglings of the School Board  and the Regional Board, the  residents of Pender Harbour  no longer have an Aquatic  Society to operate their  swimming pool.  The Aquatic Society has  been ignored and embarrassed in this whole matter  from the beginning, yet they  were the only ones who were  at all knowledgeable as to the  operation of the aforementioned pool. And now the  Regional Board will have to  hire an Aquatic Director to  do this job and this will not be  an economical undertaking.  Naturally the additional cost  will come from the taxpayers  of Area A.  What a shame, when all  that was needed was a three  party meeting at the very beginning to discuss the problems, seek a solution and get  on with the job.  1 am totally amazed at the  stupidity of our elected officials. The ones who could  have helped the taxpayers of  Area A have buried their  heads in the sand and hoped  the problem would go away,  while the members who had  no interest whatsoever in  what happened at Pender  Harbour made all the decisions.  I am sure that we could  expect a better deal if we  relied on Victoria politicians  to resolve such differences.  At least there would be no  aware of the facts relevant  to the extension of cable  services to your area and indeed the extension of cable  services to other areas contiguous to our existing service  area, you will agree that we  are meeting our "mandate"  and "fulfilling our contract"  above and beyond all recognized requirements!  Yours very truly,  John S. Thomas,  Vice-President &  General Manager,  Coast Cable Vision Ltd.  conflict of interest, no prejudice as to sex and no play  for power. In my estimation,  the Regional Board and the  School Board have accomplished minus O for the residents of Area A.  Yours truly,  L. Farrell, Madeira Park  Surprised  Editor:  When Wanda Best reviewed the show of water-  colours by Shari Street at the  Arts Centre (February 24), I  was surprised that she didn't  even mention the sculpture  being shown at the same time.

Solitude  Ramblings  of  a Rover  by Dee Cee  Of ali the damn-fool questions lhat have been asked me  in regard to the winters spent in  my log cabin in Glengarry  County, ihe two most frequent  were: "Were you not lonely  there living all by yourself?"  and "What on earth did you  find to do?" I must admit that  the questioners were for the  most part urban dwellers.  Anyone who has been born and  raised in a rural environment  has more sense than to make  such fatuous enquiries.  In reply to the first of the  questions I can honestly answer  in the negative. In retrospect I  can now see that all my life I  have been somewhat of a  "loner" and preferred it that  way. I could, on occasion, put  on a pretence of being gregarious but it was a forced  effort al best and I was only too  glad to abandon it at the  earliest opportunity and, figuratively speaking, crawl back  into my shell. I felt safer and  happier there and, with few  exceptions. I have found most  of my fellowmen to be not only  uninteresting bul downright  boring if one spent any length  of time in their company. I  would gladly have put many of  the feminine sex 1 have met in  the same category and avoided  them too but, unfortunately  from   lime to time,  the  old  biological urge would take over  and the need for their company  and attentions became imperative and, at times, so  urgent and compelling that  peace of mind was impossible  without them. However after  that need had been sated 1 was  only too glad to get away from  them and resume my happy  state of solitude.  Still on the first question.  How could one possibly feel  lonely when one was an omnivorous reader and had access to  a small library that had been  bequeathed to the village of  Dunvegan by a former Presbyterian minister? There were  over 400 books gathering dust  on the shelves ofa small alcove  in the post office and, before I  arrived on the scene, only one  member of this miniature  library, the same lady who had  so kindly made me a present of  the beautiful lamp described in  a former article of mine. I am  not suggesting that the rest of  the community were illiterate  but in those far distant days the  farmers (and their wives) were  far too busy to have time for  reading and I doubt that very  many of them would have been  interested in the types of  literature that the good reverend had left behind. There  were books on theology, philosophy, history and travel, with  a few of the classics rolled in for  good measure.

Let us rather say  that I gave them a good going  over and learned a great deal,  far more than I had every  dreamed possible in my school  days. Among all these weighty  tomes I discovered Ralph  Connor and avidly devoured  all of his works, including The  Man from Glengarry. Glengarry School Days and I  especially enjoyed The Doctor  and The Prospector. The  author, as you probably know,  was writing under a pseudonym and was in real life a  minister himself, the Rev.  Charles W. Gordon.  Now for the second question  as to how I passed my time  during the daylight hours. That  first winter 1 not only had my  daily chore of cutting wood for  the stove and, although the  cabin was snug and cozy, it  took a prodigious amount to  keep it that way but I had many  other tasks that had to be  attended to. First, adopting the  principle I had learned in the  lumbcrcamps. I built a bunk  bed entirely of small peeled  poles in the corner furthest  away from the stove. I strung  ropes across the frame, then  gathered armfuls of fresh  balsam boughs to line it with  and on top of all had a mattress  of dried cornhusks that Mrs.  MacRae had made for me.  Next I built a table using the  same poles for the frame and  some of the left-over lumber for  the top. Finally I constructed  shelves and cupboards out ol  the remaining boards. Not  knowing the first thing about  carpentry, all this took a great  deal of my time. Also that  winter I nearly lost the cabin  when Ihe chimney thai Archie  and I had so painstakingly and  k/eMntj Goimu  ^udamid Gouitu  Gwduatiofi Gownb  How /vailaMe at  Trail Bay Centre  Sechelt 885-9818  Trail Bay Centre Store Only  Tax policy gets  quick results  A recommendation made by Alderman Brian Stelck at last  week's Sechelt council meeting met with outstanding success. The  recommendation, now a policy of the Sechelt council, was to  follow the precedent set by the City of Victoria, "that on the  penalty date of taxes, anyone with outstanding taxes of $1,000 or  more be issued a writ and thai the Village of Sechelt apply to the  Court of suitable jurisdiction for the recovery of taxes."  This, plus the threat of publication of delinquent tax payers'  names in local newspapers was enough to start a small stampede  to the village office to pay up. In one week, over half.of the taxes  owing to the village were paid. $30,000 of the $53,000 owing.  Gibsons access  still disputed  Continued from Page One  Alderman Strom replied that she had supported the Payne  Road access only "on the condition that Sunnycrest Road is a  reality."  Strom later told the Coast News that she had not been  pressured in any way, by other members of council or by any  group of merchants, to change her decision. Strom pointed out  that traffic coming down Payne Road destined for the upper  Gibsons commercial core would have to make two awkward left  turns, one at Payne Road and Highway 101, and another across  Highway 101 into the Sunnycrest Mall parking area.  Strom said she felt that such traffic would use North Road  instead, because of the easier right-hand turns and this would  create a heavy traffic flow past both Gibsons Elementary and  Elphinstone Secondary Schools. At the meeting, Strom also  pointed out that the continuation of Sunnycrest Road to bisect  Davis Road is a recommendation of the Department of Highways  which neither she nor council has favoured.  Speakers Jon McCrea and Blane Hagedorn pointed out that  large trucks carrying freight to the larger stores in the Sunnycrest  Shopping Centre would be able to service those stores without  passing through the congested centre of the commercial core.  McCrea also observed that while developers would have a vested  interest in completing the Payne Road access at their own  expense, "nobody will build Sunnycrest Road but the Provincial  government."  6 9 96 6 9 9��990$  proudly erected more or less  collapsed and had to be rebuilt,  this time with the help of an  experienced bricklayer and  stonemason, one Hughie Mac  Intosh, who had brought his  skills over with him from  Scotland many years previously.  Before I finish my quota for  this week's article. I have been  reminded by my "secretary"  not to forget to mention  Abraham Lincoln. She was  referring not to the great  emancipator but to a rooster  that had been given to me  shortly after 1 had moved into  my little home in the woods. He  was a magnificent looking  Plymouth Rock and had originally been presented to me as a  dinner but I grew so fond of  him and he of me that 1 couldn't  bring myself to chop his head  off, let alone entertaining the  idea of plucking him and  getting him ready for the pot!  Actually he was a damned  nuisance as he roosted up in a  tree behind the cabin and woke  me up each morning at daylight  with his crowing that I swear  could be heard for miles. Not  only that but it was obvious  that he had never heard of  women's lib. as he regarded  everything as a sex object,  including the broom with  which I fended him off when he  attacked me on infrequent  occasions. He followed me  everywhere; he just couldn't  bear the thought of letting me  out of his sight and. until I  learned to lock him up in the  cabin before starting lo the  village, he would attempt to  accompany me. It was a  ludicrous sight lo look behind  (I was on snowshoesl and see  him floundering through the  drifts, stopping to shake his  feathers, then taking oft again  to fly for a short distance belore  once more div ing head first into  another snow drill.  So passed my first winter and  it was a good one. The days and  weeks would go by without my  seeing or having contact wiih  another human being and I  enjoyed every minute of it. .lust  Abe the rooster and myself,  sharing a life of frustrated  concupiscence. Who knows,  perhaps thai was the way it was  intended in the first place!

WHAT YOU AS THE VENDOR CAN EXPECT YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES  THE LICENSEE TO DO FOR YOU AS VENDOR ARE:  Advise you on the realistic worth of your property, based on current market values and  conditions. Using this information, you should be able to decide the list (or asking) price for  your property.  Depending on the nature of the property and probable "market", he may suggest listing with  the local Multiple Listing Service, if he thinks your property would benefit from wider  market exposure. This increases the number of licensees working to achieve a sale.  Discuss how the property should be promoted, the advertising to be done, whether a 'For  Sale' sign, or an Open House is warranted for instance.  Provide you with a list of recommendations for improving the saleability of your home.  Be present at special showings or Open Houses.  Be available at any reasonable time to answer questions or help you with problems.  Qualify and  screen  prospective  buyers before  showing your  property  to avoid  inconveniencing you with unrealistic offers.  Help you in deciding to accept or reject offers. If you accept, you can expect his help in  protecting your interests while finalizing the transaction.  1. To make available to the licensee all relevant particulars about the property and the  existing financing. Accuracy is important as false or incorrect information given to the  purchaser may be grounds for cancellation of the sale and also for a legal action for  misrepresentation.  2. To make clear to your licensee any limitations you may wish made regarding the showing of  your property (e.g. only by appointment).  3. To advise your licensee what is and what is not included with the property (e.g. fridge, stove,  drapes, etc.).  You should also be aware that you are responsible for payment of a sales commission should  the licensee present an offer which meets the conditio is and price you set out in the listing  agreement and you decide, for any reason, not to accept the offer. This is because the licensee  has performed the services for which you agreed to pay him.
