 mmtmwtm  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  61.1  Is  Par"amemDEU8^Ry  The Sunshine  Delivered to every address on the Coast  December 9, 1980  Volume 34, Number 49  For some, Ihe heavy snow fall was a time lo he creative, while for others, a well aimed snowball was too great a temptation to turn  down. Pholo by M.M. Joe.  Lowest temperatures since 72  Heavy snowfall blankets coast  The usual pattern for a snowfall at sea-level on the Sunshine  Coast is when cold arctic air which has spilled over the Coast  mountains is pushed back by the next weather system coming  onto the Coast. We wake up to 10-13 cm or more of snow and  often by mid-day it's turning to rain, though it sometimes stays  around a few days. It doesn't often happen in December���we  usually wait until January.  Occasionally, at this year, the low pressure offshore stalls.  Without the strength to hold the arctic air back behind the  mountains, surges of warm, wet air from the ocean override the  cold air spilling out from inland through the inlets and we have a  nice blanket of snow to protect the gardens from the  accompanying low temperatures. The snow stays around until a  strong enough storm generates in the Pacific to rout the Arctic air,  sometimes several weeks.  Between Tuesday and Saturday we recorded 20 cm of snow at  Gower Point and temperatures dropped Friday night to -6.3 C.  Depth of snow and lower temperatures will be recorded at higher  elevations and in places exposed to the N.E. winds.  We have to go back to December 1972 for lower temperatures, -  9.0 C recorded on December 7 with no snow covering. This was a  classic cold spell with a lot of wet snow at the end of it but which  only stayed around for 3 days.  The previous winter we had snow on the ground for two  months, from December 8 with an overnight fall of 18 cm to the  final melting of the last 2 cm on February 8. Between December 8,  Discrimination prohibited  Human Rights won  Heated meeting in a cold hall  Sewers and cluster housing  urged for Pender Harbour  by John Burnside  by Michael J. Nozinikl  The B.C. Human Rights  Commission, in conjunction  with the Provincial Ministry  of Labour has just published a  fine portfolio of pamphlets  designed to illuminate our  statutory rights and obligations and to assist in the  implementation of the Human  Rights Code.  Tracing its inspiration to  the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights,  B.C.'s Code "forbids discrimination based on a person's race, religion, colour,  ancestry, place of origin or  sex" as well as other "group  characteristics" including age  political persuasion and, in  some instances, physical size  and handicaps. Business,  industry, government and  educational institutions, restaurants, hotels etc. may not  arbitrarily refuse anyone service, although some of these  prohibitions understandably  do not apply to non-profit  organizations.  The aforementioned "characteristics" plus the interest  ing addition of "marital  status" likewise apply to  someone seeking housing,  land or commercial units.  Bachelors, cohabitors and  single parent families might  herein find an iota of consolation. However, when a  landlord shares sleeping, bath  or kitchen facilities with a  tenant, "he or she may refuse  tenancy to anyone for any  reason."  As more women enter the  work force, special considerations such as Pregnancy  and Maternity Leave as well  as some enduring 'sexist'  hiring practices have received  careful scrutiny. Women are  certainly entering trades  which were once nearly exclusively held by men, but  men are now serving 'non-  traditional' roles in the office  and job advertisements may  no longer stipulate a preferred  sex.  This dictum was reinforced Thursday when, in  response to a complaint from  Janice Hope, the B.C. Ministry of Labour's Human  Please turn to Page 24  1971 and January 16,1972, there was rarely less than 18cm on the  ground and accumulations of snow reached 33 cm by the end of  December.  During this time the average overnight temperature was -1.0 C  in December with below freezing temperatures every night except  6 nights, and in January the average was -2.0 C with 7 nights above  zero.  Soliciting funds  Nuns not Catholic  A group of nuns soliciting funds have been on the Sunshine  Coast for the past week. Several residents are concerned that  people may be giving donations, thinking that their money is  going to the Roman Catholic Church.  They are believed to be a group which broke connections with  the Roman Catholic Church in 1963 and are based in Burnaby in  the House of Infinite Love, 4881 Canada Way.  A report in the B.C. Catholic newspaper dated September 24,  1979 indicates that such groups are soliciting without Church  approval.  "They make no known public accounting as to what they do  with the money they receive. So if they come to your door,  remember that they are not Catholic and do not belong to any  other mainline Christian denomination." (B.C. Catholic)  Gibsons RCMP w.sh to inform the public that there are no laws  against door-to-door soliciting in the municipality.  Man overboard  On Friday evening, beachcombers, B.C. Ferries and  Search and Rescue craft combed the area south of Bowen  Island for a deckhand reported missing from a tow boat on  its way to Vancouver with a chip barge.  At 7 pm, 31 year old George Cayen of Courtenay was  announced missing from the 89 foot tow boat Seaspan  Corsair, as it rounded Lookout Point at the southern end of  Bowen Island.  Cayen left the wheelhouse lo go below, lt is presumed he  slipped and fell overboard. In high seas, ferries from both  the Nanaimo and Langdale runs were re-routed to take part  in the search.  At press time on Sunday evening he was still missing and  is presumed drowned.  Construction begins  Construction work has begun on Sechelt municipal hall  on a two-storey, 2100 square foot extension, scheduled to be  completed in early February.  The hall will be closed from December 22nd to the 26th  for holidays and renovations.  Mayor meets Band  Mayor Bud Koch reported on his meeting with Indian  Band leaders at the last Sechelt Municipal Council meeting.  Subjects under discussion included Indian land with  reference to Village boundaries and traffic going through on  the way to East Porpoise Bay.  Band leaders also expressed interest in connecting to the  Municipal sewer system should it be extended to Selma  Park and Davis Bay. In addition, the Band would like to see  the bulk oil facilities currently at the foot of Wharf Rd.  moved onto their property in line with their $3 million  proposed bulk petroleum terminal.  Despite inclement weather, a cold hall, and rumours of  postponement, approximately 100 Pender Harbourites were in  attendance at the Madeira Park Community Hall on Sunday to  discuss the Pender Harbour Settlement Plan. Most of those  present were opposed to significant portions of the sixth draft of  the plan and Regional Director Joe Harrison, with only one of his  Area Planning Committee in attendance was beleaguered for  much of the meeting.  The Pender Harbour Plan, like the Roberts Creek Plan already  in place, called for the maintenance of the 'rural atmosphere' of  Pender Harbour. Harrison argued that the cost of a sewer system  in an area as spread out and with terrain as difficult as Pender  Harbour was prohibitive, the more so since the federal  government has withdrawn its one third contribution to  community sewer systems.  The plan called for lot sizes of one half acre to be the norm in the  Harbour area because much of the area had been tested and  shown to be of bad or probably bad septic capacity.  The majority of those present seemed to feel that the plan's  failure to consider a sewer system would inhibit the area's growth  and that projected population figures presented in the plan were  likely to prove highly misleading.  Another primary concern was the plan's negation of the  concept of cluster housing. Several speakers argued that the price  of half acre lots in Pender Harbour, now costing $23,000 and up,  would make it impossible for young people to settle in the area.  "I recognize that there are two fundamental opinions in the  community," said Harrison. "One group would like to keep the  Harbour essentially unchanged and another group argues that  people must be able to make a living in the area."  "Whose plan is this?' demanded Lloyd Davis. "The people who  aie asking have lived here for 30 and 40 years."  Robi Peters of Kleindale drew applause when she pointed out  that the government was advising multiple housing. "People can't  afford single family dwellings. If you leave things as they are all  that's going to be left are the older people and that's a sad thing.  Without progress you stagnate. If the area is going to grow we are  going to need a sewer system."  Harrison again pointed out that in 1977 the cost of a sewer  system was VA million which would be likely doubled in 1980  dollars. "The installation costs are thousands per household," he  said.  In conversation with the Coast News after the meeting,  Harrison said that despite the overwhelming opposition that the  plan received at Sunday's meeting, he was convinced that two-  thirds of the community would oppose a sewer system. "By far the  most of the phone calls I receive are from people complaining  about high taxation. I would go to election on the issue," said  Harrison.  School Trustee Al Lloyd of Pender Harbour said that he felt  that Harrison had made every mistake he could make. "He gave  the people just three days to get a copy of the plan and then they  had to go to Sechelt to get it. lt should have been available  locally."  Lloyd also deplored the fact that Harrison's committee was  notable by their absence, but did say that some ofthe material in  the plan had been put together by the original committee of which  he had been a member.  Lloyd said many of the fears that the proposed plan would just  be rammed through were laid to rest with near unanimous vote in  favour of allowing cluster housing. "It made people realize the  proposed plan can still be changed," he said.  The next meeting on the Pender Settlement Plan will be held in  January.  Dogs affected  Virus hits coast  Parvovirus Emeritus has reached c pidemic proportions in some  parts of Canada and the United States and Dr. Bailey of Gibsons  Animal Clinic has confirmed that the virus has arrived on the  Sunshine Coast.  The first cases in Gibsons occurred last August and of  approximately 33 dogs brought to Dr. Bailey for treatment since  then, six resulted in death. Dr. Bailey pointed out that he had also  received reports from people whose animals died before they  could bring them in for treatment.  Dr. Skinner of Capilano Pet Hospital in North Vanouver  reported treating as many as six cases a day during September and  October but says he has seen very few cases a . utiy.  Dr. Bailey told the Coast News "The disease, believed to be  caused by a cat distemper virus causes acute infection in the  animal's intestines. Treatment is successful in most instances and  the preventative vaccine is thought to be effective in 70% of the  dog population. The vaccine is administered in 2 doses 2 to 3  weeks apart."  Dr. Bailey said the resistant virus lives outside the body and as a  consequence, segregation of the animal is not an effective  deterrent.  The epidemic resulted in a depletion of vaccine supplies earlier  this fall but Dr. Bailey said that stocks are up again.  ON THE INSIDE...

Skelly heard members of the group express their concern over  the proximity of the tanks to the Roberts Creek Elementary  School, where over 200 children attend classes, and over the lack  of an evacuation plan for the area in the event of a serious leak or  explosion at the tanks.  Skelly assured the group that he shares their concerns over the  possible danger represented by the tanks and supports their  efforts to have them relocated. Skelly has written to Jack Bibbe,  Manager of Canadian Propane Gas and Oil Ltd., requesting to  know what plans the company has to relocate the facility.  Mr. Bibbe told the Coast News last week that he does not wish  to comment on the situation at present, but is attempting to meet  with Mr. Skelly to "discuss his concerns".  Skelly told the Roberts Creek group that the Federal  government may be able to bring pressure to bear on the  Provincial Lands Branch under the new Transportation of  Dangerous Goods Act, which will regulate both the transporation  and storage of dangerous substances.  "This situation is a perfect example of what this legislation is all  about," Skelly said.  The Roberts Creek Concerned Citizens have also contacted  Provincial Environment Minister Stephen Rogers, under whose  ministry the Lands Branch grants or denies foreshore leases, such  as that presently held by Canadian Propane Ltd. at the Roberts  Creek site.  In a letter of reply, Rogers told the group he passed the  information to Attorney-General Allan Williams. Rogers'  decision indicates that the Provincial government may be aware  of a legal battle to come when the new Planning Act, under which  thc approved Roberts Creek Official Settlement Plan, will be, in  effect, a by-law, is passed in the coming year.  Ray Skelly, MP for Comox-Powell River, visited the propane storage tank site al the mouth of Roberts Creek on Monday.  December I, and talked with residents who feel the tanks are a danger to the community.  asBacau  MHttttS  U-gy mm  Coast News, December 9, 1980  /  The  Sunshine.  ?CNA  BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  1978  Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published al Gibtont, B.C. every  Tuetday, by Glanlord Prett Lid.

We  would lhank Ms. Joan Robb of the BCTF  Executive for her spirited defence of her  profession in last week's paper. Ms.  Robb herself is a dedicated and gifted  teacher to our knowledge and her concerns are, as they should be, for the  well-being of her profession and the  children in its charge.  It may be regrettable however that  teachers are becoming militant again on  the subject of their pensions as they did  in 1971. Not because they have no right  to do so. lt is indeed arguable that their  pension funds have been mishandled and  any time a government cancels a negotiated agreement by legislation the liberties  of all are threatened.  So far so good. The argument here  would be that the impression may be  left in the minds of the public that it is  only matters financial that lead teachers  to zealous activity. There is much amiss  in the profession in a province which  has been blessed with the opportunity to  selectively hire teachers from many parts  of the world for many years. Good  teachers are and have been available.  They are frequently severely handicapped in the performance of their  duties by matters over which they  have little professional control. They are  still only negotiating to have the right to  have some input into learning conditions  in their classrooms and perhaps if  more zeal had been evident in the past in  tWs direction more would have been  accomplished.  We raise the question of whether it  would in the long run prove more educationally beneficial if some of the  administrative dead wood was pruned  and the harassment of teachers by  administrators lessened. The clout that  teachers gained through the pensions  issue in 1972 led to no significant improvement in learning conditions and it  may be time for teachers in general and  the BCTF in particular to bite the bullet  and address themselves forcefully and  directly to the streamlining and in-  vigoration of a ponderously unsatisfactory system.  Support the Elves  We have been remiss somewhat this  year in not bringing to public attention  the need for suppprt of the Sunshine  Coast Elves Club.  Christmas after Christmas the Elves  bring some of the true meaning of  giving and sharing to Christmas with  their work on behalf of families less  fortunate than most. Many a household  which has met misfortune has had good  cause to bless the dedicated men and  women ofthe Elves Club.

"...The Rev. John Antle, Superintendent of the Columbia Coast Mission  and skipper of the Missions Hospital  ship 'Columbia' promised the people  the hospital if they would work with the  Mission to build it.  "The response was immediate and  all that could be desired. One man gave  land for the site, others closed their  machine shops or tied up their boats to  start falling trees and blasting the  rocks and the stumps. In an amazingly  short time the foundation was ready  and the building took form and  meaning on its beautiful hillside  location overlooking a salt-water  lagoon, the harbour and strait at  Garden Bay."

Throughout his years here, Dr. Inglis  interested himself in political science, in the art of building, and in the advancement  of music. Mrs. Inglis took an active part in education and in community affairs.  Photo courtesy Inglis family collection and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  L.R. Peterson  *&?���'  In snow time this young  man's fancy lightly turns to  thoughts of footwear. Nothing, I have found, improves  one's ability to aesthetically  appreciate winter whiteness  faster than warm dry feet and  with such thoughts in mind  I bought myself a pair of  galoshes last week  Galoshes! I met the strange  word and the objects that they  describe when I was twelve'  years old. An older friend  passed me a pair of hand me  downs and to my delight and  amazement I discovered that  cold, wet feet in the snow time  was not an inevitable fact of  life. Ever since I have been  a devotee of properly protective footwear.  In Montreal where ten to  twelve inches might be dumped in a single snow fall I wore  galoshes that came up over  the ankles and trudged relatively happily through the  drifts to stand on the street  corners indifferent entirely  to the dictates of fashionable  appearance.  Because of my chilly childhood I looked askance at the  well-dressed young Montreal-  ers, vain as peacocks who had  their shiny, pointed toed shoes  minimally augmented with the  inanity of toe rubbers. I looked  in disbelief a hundred times  as some obviously half-frozen  fashion plate leapt aboard a  bus or a street car leaving his  toe rubbers behind him in the  snow.  One memorable night,  March 17, 1955, I came out of  a St. Patrick's Day dance on  Stanley Street in Montreal to  find the street littered with a  couple of hundred thousand,  or so it seemed, abandoned  UK" rubbers on St. Catherines  Street in the wake of the  Maurice Richard hockey riot  and I meditated on the folly  of man who would begin  to wage social warfare with  such inadequate foot protection in the middle of a night  many degrees below freezing.  Even social unrest must be  more comfortable with warm  feet.  Now the possibility and  necessity of proper footwear  is one of those little lessons  that life gives that needs more  than one presentation to be  properly inculcated. So it was  that after almost a decade  of smug superiority on the  matter of having adequate  footwear in the cold and snowy  climes of Canada I was to  learn the whole lesson over  again in the Yukon.  On one of my first walks  on a really cold day in the  Klondike I prepared for the  exercise by wrapping my  pedal extremities in three or  Musings  John Burnside  four pairs of heavy work socks  on top of a pair of felt sole  liners, slipped the whole into  a pair of gumboots and set off.  1 made the checchako mistake  of putting all three pairs of  trousers - it was sixty below -  inside the gum boots. All my  preparations were negated  going down the first snow hill.  I kicked snow into the back  of the boots and by the time  I hit the hard-packed snow  I could hear my own footsteps  but couldn't feel the road.  I was only at the time a mile  from home but by the time I  got there 1 had frozen feet  and was forced to wear  bedroom slippers to work  because of the. blisters for  about three weeks.  From this harsh reminder  about the importance of footwear I was led to the further  delight of making the acquaintance of mukluks. The  joy was mine of moosehide  covering which in the coldest  weather allows one to tread  the frozen earth with all the  freedom and lightness of the  summer barefoot and yet  be warm and dry in the most  savage of earthly extremities  of cold.  Mukluks, of course, are of  no value in temperatures such  as ours on the coast. They  need cold, dry snow to be  effective. So it was I contented  myself last week with a return  to my original discovery and  bought galoshes.  An extra pair of socks inside  my gumboots, my trouser legs  on the outside against the  encroaching snow and galoshes over the feet and 1 was  prepared to take delight in the  snow that decorates our  section of the coast.  On the first day of significant snowfall I parked the  battered Datsun at the bottom  of Knob Hill and trudged up to  where the traffic hadn't besmirched the whiteness.  There is a great joy in putting  the first footsteps in a fresih  fall of snow in a place where  more boisterous revellers than  I are unlikely to be encountered.  I trudged in silent delight  among the snow laden trees  and noted how even a few  hundred feet above the sea  level the volume of the white  stuff became markedly more.  From both shoulders of the hill  the world below disappeared  from view. Gibsons, the sea,  Keats Island, all hidden and  up there was a still and  beautiful world with but one  raven circling blackly above  the whitened trees.  Spiritual? Yes! Uplifting?  Certainly! But only because  my feet were warm. Only  because of my new galoshes,  incongruous and spat-tike  against the older gum boots,  could I revel in the mystic  wonder of a clean, crisp  snowfall.  When I returned to the  world of social intercourse  after my sojourn on the hill  there were some derisory  comments made about my  eccentric footwear but I  endured it calmly and with a  smile. I knew where and in  what comfort those humble  galoshes had enabled me to go  and was content.  So How Many Nights  Have I Thought of You  So how many wet black nights have I thought of you  Curled up warm In your level bed  While I'm up to my one  In a heaving sttmful of slippery kelp  Trying to untangle scrap-fish from flying web  Before I'm blown onto some ragged shore.  Sharp rain sheets down almost level, needling  Into cheeks; eyebrow runoff drips down my nose,  And every so often, as boat yards back along the net  A curler bursts over the stem full Into my face.  Down and Inside my raingear. That's  When I crack, and threaten  To cut the lousy net right bt two,  To go In and find a spot to anchor up.  So how many miserable times have I thought  Of all of you, lying out there asleep  Taking it just so easy,  While I've putted in ihe last of the net,  Stumbled dripping into the cabin, and  Turned the boat around, heading back into the wind  JohnSkapski  Slings & Arrows  >  n  George Matthews  ?f  Time was when buying your  kid a Christmas present was a  simple matter of sitting it  down on Santa's lap and  getting him or her to spill the  beans as to what toy would be  amusing enough to keep the  little brat quiet while the old  man snoozed on Christmas  Day. Nowadays, a poor parent  needs a PHD in child psychology and a research grant from  the Canada Council to help  him decide what to buy.  Buying a Christmas gift for  your child is no longer a  simple act of love, it has  become a statement of social  and political conviction.  Last week I was down at the  toy department looking for  something for one of my little  girls. There I was in the doll  section trying to decide which  end of the doll was of most  interest to my youngest. Was  it to be a doll who needed  her diapers changed or one  who needed her hair combed?  Unable to decide, 1 made the  mistake of asking a woman  nearby what little girls like  in the way of dolls. This particular woman was wearing a  pair of garish leather boots  and red leather pants with a  chain for a belt. Naturally,  I assumed she was one of  Santa's little helpers.  "Buy your kid a train,  Mac, or give her a gift certificate   for  Judo   lessons."  "I beg your pardon," I  replied, "but don't you buy  dolls for girls and trains  for boys?"  "Only if you want to  twist her psyche to the whims  of bourgeois morality," she  spat.  It turned out that my  advisor was Butch Spitz, a  representative of S.L.U.G.,  Socialist Lesbian Underground. Butch informed me  that her organization' was  infiltrating toy stores across  the country, making sure that  ignorant chauvinist fathers  were not buying their daughters anything so dumb as a  doll. She challenged me to an  arm wrestle, saying that if I  won it was the doll but if she  won it was judo lessons.  Fortunately, I was saved from  this humiliation by a lovely  lady in a frilly pink gown who  introduced herself as Dorthy  Mae-Anne Gadfly of F.R.l.L:-  L. Feminine Reasons for indulging in Leisure and Lace.  Mrs. G. took up my cause  immediately and threatened to  swoon right then and there if  Butch didn't release my  aching wrist.  As these two fought it out,  I skulked away to the Teddy-  bears in hopes of regaining my  composure. 1 had made my  selection and was on thc verpc  of escape when a little > , '  who resembled Peter Lone,  wearing a white lab-coat and  spectacles   seized   my  arm.  "No you fool, do you want to  murder your child?"  Since this thought hadn't  occurred to me since the day  before, when my darling  daughter had filled my new  camera with chocolate milk, I  stopped in my tracks.  "Don't you know this  teddybear is lethal?" he  asked. "The eyes, see ttvse  buttons for the eyes, tie) re  30% cyanide. One kiss . id.."  He snapped his fingers. "And  those cute little cars, they're  attached with three inch  spikes. One trip and it's game  over, the child will be impaled  like a butterfly."  I fled in terror to Children's  Wear. Surely a nice warm  scarf wouldn't destroy her  psyche or poison her. "That  scarf was made in Bulgaria"  said a foreign voice from  behind me. "Do you want to  support a totalitarian economy  by purchasing a product made  by the slave labour of a  Communist state?"  I was about to tell him to  buzz off when 1 noticed that  not only did he resemble  pictures I'd seen of the guy  who shot the Arch-Duke in  1914, but he was wearing one  of those foreign leather trench  coats that bulged where his  armpit should have been. I  retreated to Children's Books.  On my way to the cashier to  pay for my selection I was  stopped by two very large  black fellows. "Do you know  that book was written by a  woman who once wrote an  article supporting the racist  regime in South Africa?"  "I must have taken the  wrong book," 1 suggested.  "I thought it was Agatha  Christie. I'm really glad you  pointed that out to me, sir."  The trade unionists  wouldn't let me buy a McDonald's gift certificate The  fascists resented a copy of  "Cal! of the Wild". The  N.A.A.C.P. was thumbs down  on Brer Rabbit. The socialists  hated "Monopoly".  I went to the public library  and read 14 reports in the  Consumer Guide and the  latest publication of the  Canada Toy Council. After  thorough investigation I  bought three balls of New  Zealand lamb's wool and I'm  knitting her a pair of mittens.  With luck, I'll be finished by  Christmas, 1982.  __________  ���MM.

Ferry Corporation.  To whom it may concern:  I am a nursing mother who  travels on the B.C. Ferries  quite frequently and was very  disappointed with the attitude  of one of the staff.  I was sitting quietly with my  mother and younger brother,  nursing my two and one half  month old baby, when I was  approached by a member of  your staff. She disgustedly  told me that (quote), "there is  a room for that". I asked her  if she minded and she told me  that other passengers might  be offended and that I had to  finish in the room provided.  The room provided on this  particular ferry was in the  women's washroom which I  find to be an unsanitary  place to feed my child!  I was revealing nothing and  I'm sure the few other people  Short break in the war  Editor:  Just a short note to let all  my bureaucratic buddies know  there will be a short break in  our war. Please do not get  carried away and order a ton  of champagne to celebrate  the downfall of another of your  loyal "subjects". I am just  . giving another of your kind a  chance   to   correct   a   few  wrongs.  This is not to say there  won't be some screaming if  "Deleterious Dixon" gets  carried away again or some  answers if "Charlie Baby"  Lee wants a pen pal.  It's quite simply a fact,  that I am too dumb to give up.  S.E. (Rocky) Mountain  in the room didn't have a clue  what I was even doing!  I quietly finished feeding her  in my seat.  I'm not ashamed to be  breast-feeding my infant, nor  do I believe that it should be  hidden. It is the most natural  thing in the world. Would you  rather I let her cry? I'm sure  the other ferry patrons would  have been far more upset.  I refuse to allow people to  make me feel dirty for such a  thing as feeding my baby in  the most natural way possible!  I would welcome a comment  and I shall also continue to  feed my baby when and where  she is hungry.  Sincerely  Mrs. J. Flag  Campbell River, B.C.

The weeks pass with  surprising swiftness. Soon  we're riding the long slope of  Ihe year down into fall. Cecil  Jimmy, the budgy chaser, quits  and is replaced by a Spud  Islander called Alec Judson.  He's a slight redhead in his late-  twenties with a cocky attitude  and a penchant for talking-  back. He and Cliff don't hit it  (iff at all. "That new guy's a real  smartass!" he decides after the  first few days.  They contrive to coexist  however. Finally we rig-up on  ihe last and largest setting. It  had been intended for the steel-  spar. We had been slated to  make our final stand up a  branch-road on the far side of  the bowl���a very steep and  dangerous-looking show. Due  to thc fire and other mishaps  however, we are far behind  schedule. The outfit's timber-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  lease has expired and we're  running into penalty time.  Grimley is breathing down  Black's neck. Rather than lose  more time by switching machines, he sends the tower to  the mountain-goat show. I'm  not too unhappy about this  turn of events.  But we are not without  problems. Trackloaders are  intended for short-yarding and  seldom reach out more than  eight-hundred feet. On the  longest corner of this setting,  we're forced lo put an extension on the mainline and go  out over eleven. Its only  middling tough ground, steep  in front but angling down to  become almost flat at the back.

Hurrying out of a turn, one  rainswept day in late fall, I  stumble over a chunk and twist  my ankle. It doesn't bother me  much at first but by the  following morning, it's pretty  sore. Foolishly, I decide to try  and tough it out. I'm damn  soon wishing I'd stayed home.  The ankle gets worse and by  nine o'clock, I'm hopping and  hobbling about that sidehill  like a gimp. It's hopeless.  "Figure you can chaser queries Cliff.  1 guess I can manage that as  I'll be able to favour my good  leg. Limping awkwardly, I  follow him into the landing.  "Hey Alec" says Cliff to the  chaser "I want you guys to  trade off for a couple of days  until his leg gets better."  "No way" says Judson flatly.  "I hired-out to chase, not pull  bloody riggin'l"  "You going down there or  not?"  "1 told you."  "Okay, wiseguy" says Cliff  with no humour in him now,  "grab your gutcan and get the  hell down that roadl"  "You can't fire me!"  "Better believe I just didl"  assures Cliff. "You can hitch a  ride d own with the next truck."  "I'm taking this to the  Labour Relations Board I"  seethes Judson.  "Go right aheadl"  That's the last of rebellious  Judson. He does indeed take  his supposed grievance to the  Board but when the facta ofthe  matter come out, Cliff is  exonerataed. I manage to  stagger around the landing till  Friday. Cliff works the rigging  alone. By the following Monday, I'm able to resume my  proper job. Old Casey comes  chasing for us, having had  enough of the workhouse  tower. "Gaddammer boys, you  got yourselves a picnic here!"  It's good to hear his growly  voice again. We've got a  righteous crew of old pros al  last.  To be continued  Live theatre is a rare  experience on the Sunshine  Coast, but interest is obviously blossoming with the  emergence of Suncoast Play-  era and the rumoured rebirth  of Driftwood Players. So it is  with great pleasure that the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council is  able to bring Brian D. Barnes/  One Man Theatre to the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt on Friday, December  12 at 8:30 p.m.  Brian will be presenting  us with Charles Dickens  classic, A Christmas Carol.  How can one person perform  a play with so many characters  you may ask? Well firstly,  Brian D. Barnes specializes  in solo performing, a theatrical form that demands  the actor to be highly adept  at emoting distinct characterizations without the aid of  lavish sets and costumes,  or even another actor to  relate to. Secondly, this  version of A Christinas Carol  was the first of Dickens'  adaptations of his novels  for his own readings. Brian  will delight us by transforming  himself into fourteen different  characters throughout the  evening.  And who is Brian D. Barnes? Those who caught his  outstanding performance of  the 40 characters in Dylan  Thomas' Under MUkwood  three years ago will well  remember him. For all you  others, Brian is a professional  actor devoted exclusively to  solo performing and is based  in London, England. He has  toured his One Man Theatre  around   the   world   several  times and is fondly referred to  as "the jet-setting minstrel".  He is also an authority on the  History of Theatre and frequently gives slide lectures in  universities and Adult Education organizations.  This will prove to be an  evening of dynamic performance for all ages, in  intimate surroundings... enjoyment guaranteed. So don't  forget to come to the Arts  Centre at 8:30 p.m., Friday  December 12. Admission is  $5.00 for adults, $2.50 for  students and O.A.P.  We would also like to  remind people that Stephen  Hubert, a well known musician on the coast, will be  performing his own music the  following evening, Saturday,  December 13 at 8:30 p.m. for  our Saturday Night Coffee  Concert. Admission is $2.00  and fabulous refreshments are  available.  The Arts Centre closes  December 15 (except for the  film Love and Death by Woody  Allen on December 16) for  three weeks and re-opens  Tuesday, January 6 with an  exhibit of work by British  artist David Hockney on loan  from the J. Ron Longstaffe  collection and organized by  the Vancouver Art Gallery  Extension Department.  Finally, we are on the  lookout for any photos, memories or items from Sechelt  from the year 1956, for an  exhibit at the Arts Centre co-  memorating Sechelt's 25th  Anniversary as a village. Can  you help us? Call Keith  Wallace at 885-5412. Happy  Holidays all!  rftWm- wvMWm' rr*w^ rmwrciw ywn^ wy*w*r<*9m- nvw #���������� rww^  CHRISTMAS  CONCERT  Sun.

At the Twilight  One Man Theatre  at Arts Centre  The late Steve McQueen's  last movie, a holiday season  matinee featuring perennial  favourite Charlie Brown, and  a look at the life of touring  rock and rollers make up the  varied bill of fare at. the  Twilight Theatre this week.  McQueen is featured in The  Hunter, an engaging thriller  about an aging bounty hunter  called Ralph Thorson. Thor-  son, pushing fifty, is no spring  chicken but as portrayed by  McQueen lie is still a hard-  beaded, likeable fellow. From  its light-hearted beginnings  the film moves to action  thriller and should appeal to  a wide audience. Hie Hunter  will be shown at the Twilight  Theatre Wednesday through  Saturday, December 10-13.  For the youngsters, Bon  Voyage Charlie Brawn is the  matinee special with show  time at 2:00 p.m. Saturday,  December 13.  Roadie, starring rock star  Meat Loaf, will appeal to the  teenage crowd with performances Sunday through  Tuesday, December 14-16.  The soundtrack of the film is a  lively one featuring rock  groups such as Cheap Tricks  and Styx. Action abounds with  cop chases and bar fights and  the film's glimpse into the  bizarre world of the touring  rock star is . appropriately  rowdy and raunchy.

I don't know  how he knew I was reading  Going for Coffee, an anthology  of poetry on the job compiled  by Tom Wayman, but I know  better than to ask.  Going for Coffee (Harbour  Publishing, 1981), an anthology of contemporary North  American working poems,  follows on the heels of A  Government Job at Last, an  earlier collection edited by  Wayman which has now  become a landmark in the  poetic landscape of North  America.  If my preliminary explorations are any indication,  Going for Coffee, with more  than 90 American and Canadian poets represented, could  easily surpass its predecessor  in stature as a North American  literary monument.  The contributors to Going  for Coffee write from a range  of experience as wide and  varied as the work experience  on this continent. There are  poems by policemen, loggers,  cab drivers, teachers, doctors,  fishermen, railroad men, factory workers, longshoremen,  park wardens and psychiatric  nurses. Oddly, perhaps, only  a few of the poets represented  in Going for Coffee deal with  their experience in political  terms; for the most part the  poems here come straight  from the universal gut of a  species that spends more  than half of its waking life  working at jobs it loves, hates  and frequently finds incomprehensible.  Going for Coffee is not all  grousing and grumbling,  though it contains, as you  might expect, from poets,  some remarkably eloquent  bitching. Robert Garrison's  "Want Ads-Employment Opportunities" is stunning in its  simplicity:  Looking through the paper  There's sure a lot of jobs  I don't want.  Many of the poems are  frightening, in a direct physical sense, like Peter Trower's  "Industrial Poem", that begins, "That night, Slim  Abernathy/pushed the wrong  button and wrapped his best  friend/ three times around a  drive-shaft/ in directions the  bones won't bend", or fisherman Kevin Roberts' "Hooked" in which a carelessly  handled line and a gloveless  hand unite fishermen and fish  "dancing in our pain",  both caught on the same barb.  Worse still is the steady  erosion of the soul by hours of  meaningless employment,  with no reward beyond the  paycheque, and the effect  it has, not only on the person  who does the work, but on  those around them as well.  Two poems by Bronwen  Wallace, "Nightshift No. 2"  and "Overtime No. 3" are,  in their way, the scariest  poems in the collection, describing the life of the family  with the husband on night-  shift:  "Daily the house is a battleground  and I, the buffer zone  between doorbell telephone  my son's joy  the hostile stranger  in the bedroom,  ending finally with the lines;  And though I know in my  head  it's the company's fault  I am busy plotting  the best way to pick a fight.  Aside from the griping,  there is an irrepressible,  if often inexplicable, note of  celebration that is sounded  repeatedly in Going for  Coffee, a profound affirmation  of identity in the recognition  that you are what you do.  Sometimes it's as simple as  Penny Pixler's short poem,  "The Windowless Factory":  The windowless factory:  Spring comes in-  With the second shift,  Jackets in hand.  In the introduction, Way-  man suggests that work as a  subject for poetry was first  dealt with realistically in the  1930's when the labour movement in North America was  in its organizational heyday.  As the average level of education in members of the work  force increased, Wayman argues, working people became  more articulate and more  inclined to reflect on their  relationships to their jobs in  poetic form.  Though there are a few  poets in Going for Coffee  who take themselves a bit too  seriously, they are more than  made up for by the ironic  humour displayed by many  others. Take Howard White's  "These Here Poets"; for  example, in which Wayman's  theory is reduced to an absurd  irony:  Used to be in the woods all  you had to  watch for was junkies  nodding off  getting caught with their  ass in the bight  now it's these Christly poets  scratching   away    behind  every tree  trying to get you to repeat  everything  gotta do your job and their  job too...  finally finishing with "if that  guy ever shows up around  here again/ he'll have a real  accident to write about."  Going for Coffee is more  than just an anthology 'of  genre poetry, "poetry on the  job"; it's certainly one of the  finest anthologies of contemporary poety to appear in  many years. A good gift for  Christmas. All for now.

At one time, books were quite inexpensive  and while paperbacks still are, glossy pictorials range very high.  As a child, I can remember being disappointed when a furtive pre-  Christmas feel of the presents under the tree meant that the hard  ones which didn't rattle were likely to be books. It wasn't that I  didn't love reading, it's just that some of my relatives weren't too  careful about their selection. Consequently, I was often stuck with  a dry, unattractive book that eventually was passed on as a  birthday game prize. Choosing books for teens is a challenge.  Where do some adults go wrong in selecting a book for kids?  Like any other gift, it requires some investigation into the nature  of the receiver. What are his personal interest, what other books  has he enjoyed, does he not read at all? If the latter is true, don't  despair. Recorded seldom-readers rate among 73% of the  adolescent population. Youngsters do read, of course, but not  necessarily what we would have them read or what we believe they  read.  lt is possible to steer a "non-reader" by giving him a magazine  subscription on a favourite pastime. Records and lists books are  always popular and enjoy long term use. If you favour useful  books, tuck a current world almanac or encyclopedic dictionary  into a teen's gift parcel. It is sure to be used for homework  assignments.  If you want some expert advice call or visit the school librarian  or teacher for popular titles and authors. Keep in mind that avid  teen readers are very selective about their books. They usually  read in one genre at a time: fantasy, science fiction, mysteries and  so on. And don't forget to check with parents if you are buying a  boxed series. Perhaps the child has read most of them already,  unless he is the kind who likes to re-read anyway.  One favourite author is Judy Blume. Her books appeal to boys  and girls. Because she writes for adolescents of varying levels, it is  a good idea to check the maturity rating. Also be sensitive to  parental guidelines. While liberal parents use bibliotheraphy as  family discussion starters in human issues, some would rather not  have their children reading books about adolescent problems. To  avoid offending either group, it might be a good idea to discuss  juvenile reading with the parents of the youngster.  We are fortunate to enjoy many fine bookstores in this area.  Their advice will be helpful also. Good luck in your book buying  and I hope the discussion you and your book recipient have about  books will be the reward for your pre-buying research.

It was to  the effect that the government, in its infinite wisdom,  has agreed to hand over more  than four thousand acres of  Provincial Forest land on this  very peninsula to the Pacific  Logging Co. This is apparently  in exchange for about nine  thousand acres on Vancouver  Island which has to be used as  park land. The location of this  huge area of land which has  to be handed over from the  Sunshine Coast was not  specified in the article, and we  wonder if anyone has taken  the trouble to find out some  details of this transaction,  and just what is in it for us?  Obviously absolutely nothing  since it is a mere exchange.  Seems that those most likely  to gain from this deal would be  the land developers who are  part of the Pacific Logging  Company and possibly those  on Vancouver Island who will  have a park. But at the  expense of the Sunshine  Coast it would seem. Do we  Just sit back and take this one  too?  Halfmoon Bay producer:  I wonder how many local  people were watching the  Timmy Telethon last weekend  when they did so well by  raising well over a million  dollars for childrens' hospitals. It was of course a Lions  project and many dedicated  and hard working people are  inyolved in this worthy project. It was therefore quite  delightful when, just before  the programme closed, the  Producer of the whole thing  was introduced and turned out  to be none other than Rai  Purdy who lives in the Halfmoon Bay area. Rai is the  producer of many TV shows  and is responsible for fund-  raising telethons for childrens'  hospitals in Montreal and Calgary to name but a couple of  them. Congratulations Rai  on a good job well done.  While on the subject of the  Purdy family - there are still  a couple of "Body Newness"  classes at the Welcome Beach  Hall before wc fold up for the  Christmas vacation. Verity  Purdy teaches this most  popular class. There will be  the usual 10 a.m. sessions on  Monday, December 8th and  the last one will be on December 15th. Any of these  mornings would be a good  time for ladies over fifty who  would like to come and have a  look, at what we do so that  you can decide if you want to  join us when we start up  again after new year. All of us  who attend these classes  have been really enjoying  them and are greatly feeling  the benefit of these sessions.  Verity also has a class going in  Gibsons where a couple of her  most enthusiastic pupils are in  their eighties. So, even if you  are well over the fifty mark  you should come and join this  group - have some fun with a  bunch of the gals - and feel the  better for it. Will keep you  posted as to when the next  session will begin. These  classes are a part of the  Sunshine Coast Women's  Program who have been  working hard at getting  activities going for women on  the Peninsula.  Auxiliary dinner:  The Welcome Beach Hall  was the location for the  Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary's Christmas Dinner last  Monday, and the atmosphere  and decorations gave us our  first feel of the Christmas  spirit for this season. Almost  forty members and guests  enjoyed a very nice turkey  dinner which was provided by  Helen Robertson's catering  group. President Mary Murray extended a warm welcome  to all and introduced her new  executive for the coming year.  She also took the opportunity  to thank the out-going executive as well as all ihe members  who have worked so hard  throughout the year. Dinner  was followed by a hearty  carol singing session under  the very capable leadership  of John Hamilton whose  efforts were greatly appreciated. In all, it was a really  nice evening and those who  were unable to attend were  missed.  -THE-  p��fAll��  Tickets for the Welcome  Beach Community Association  Christmas dinner on Saturday,  December 13th have all gone  now, but you could still give  Connie Hobbs a call if you  would like your name on a  cancellation list. Could be that  someone will find that they are  unable to attend and you  might just be lucky. The  Christmas decorations will of  course be left up at the hall for  the children's Christmas party  where Santa will visit on the  afternoon of December 21st.  Shannons back home:  Vince and Mary Shannon  have returned home after  having spent the past three  months travelling all over the  continent in their camper.  Hope to get more details  of their trip when they have  had time to settle down, but  it sure is nice to see them back  with us again.

SihJerSGAdL  Custom Orders for Christmas  by appointment  885-2687  Irene Blueth  M  by Jon Van Andell  The Hotham Sound oyster  people are having a tough  time this fall. Their operations  are shut down because of high  ESP counts, that is paralytic  shellfish poisoning or red tide  to the layman.  Kim Calloway of CJOR's  news department spent one  whole morning trying to get a  definitive reason from the  Department of Fisheries as to  what would cause such an  outbreak at such an unusual  time of the year. They were  pretty vague and suggested  heavy rains and warmer than  usual ocean currents might  account for it.  Nobody but nobody in  Egmont thinks that's the  whole story. Old-timers here  say they cannot ever remember red tide occurring in this  season.  Chris Angus of Totem  Oyster in St. Vincent Bay is  one of those oyster farmers  hurting from the closure.  He told us how the test for  red tide is performed. It seems  that the powers that be run the  oysters or clams through a  blender then inject the puree  into the stomach of a mouse  and watch to see how many  hours the little beasties live.  Beware, mice of B.CI.  Chris, whom we call Gus,  fpund a dead eagle on the  ground this week. Upon  looking skyward he saw  another eagle caught in the  fork of a tree branch. This bird  was alive with an injured leg.  He says his family is having a  ball feeding it and nursing it  back to life in one of his sheds.  In other St. Vincent Bay  news. Wayne Walker tragically lost three boats to last  Saturday's fierce storm and  high winds. His fish boat,  skiff, and a house boat were  beaten to death on the rocks.  Though no one can remember quite so much snow in  Egmont this early in the year,  I guess we were lucky to get  only 7-8 inches - just enough  for the kids to have a real  blast and not enough to  ditch too many vehicles  up this way.

The band  played several selections under the direction of Mr. Epp,  Mrs, de los Santos' folk  dancers performed a number  and Miss Lim's primary choir  sang several tunes. The  performances wjre well received by both the board  members and the parents who  had turned out in good force  despite the weather.  The crowd had diminished  considerably by the time  Kerry McCulloch presented  a letter on behalf of the Grade  One parents protesting the  size of the Grade One class at  Roberts Creek Elementary.  They feel that there are too  many students for one teacher  to give the attention they  require and ask that another  teacher be hired for the  school.  The crowd was even smaller  by the time Board Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills gave the  bad news on the tenders  for the new gymnasium at  Roberts Creek. The estimates  for the building all came in at  over $600,000, 55 to 60%  above the architect's estimate  of $380,000.  The Board and members of  the audience were stunned.  The plans are for a basic,  relatively simple structure  and there are not many things  which could be changed to  bring the costs down significantly. The project will require  major redesigning and more  funds quickly if it is to be  ready for next September.  Additional funding may be  available under the Ministry's  proposed new School Building  Manual but that apparently  cannot be banked upon.  But why should Davis Bay  qualify for a full-sized gymnasium and not Roberts  Creek which is larger, has  been working for a new  structure so long and has been  left without even an activity  room on the Ministry's approval?  Meanwhile, the architect is  doing a detailed analysis of  the tenders to see what's  wrong and the Building  Committee will meet when  they have the information they  need to discuss the matter.  Skelly visits.  Federal M.P. Ray Skelly  visited Roberts Creek last  week to talk to the "concerned  citizens" objecting to the propane tanks on the wharf.  He was very supportive of  their position and held out the  hope that the new federal  legislation governing the transportation and handling of  dangerous cargoes might be of  some help.

Mrs. Page's Grade Five  class got a chance to "live"  history last Wednesday as  part of their study of the  exploration and settlement of  Canada. They dressed up as  explorers, settlers and Indians  and shared a lunch of potato  soup, pea soup, bannock,  jobnnycake, molasses cookies,  rock buns and matrimonial  squares with parents who  could attend.  The class sang a French  Canadian paddling song and  an English sailors' song and  saw two movies, "The Age of  the Buffalo" and one on toys  called "Fiddles and Whiramy-  diddles" (that's a notched  stick with a propellor).  New Horizons Christmas.  Members of the New  Horizons group were treated  to a hot smorgasbord lunch  at their Christmas party at the  Community Hall on December  1. There was turkey, ham,  scalloped potatoes, varied  vegetable casseroles, jelly  salads, corn muffins and  baking powder biscuits, topped off with apple and mince  pies a la mode.

Thanks were  also extended to Marian Cupit  for her usual tasteful decoration of table and stage.  "Senior senior" Dick Atkinson won the opening draw  of a Christmas cup and saucer.

Dan and his wife travelled  to the store and around the  Harbour in a two-man dugout  canoe, she in the bow paddling, he in the stern, his  paddle laid thwartships, his  arms folded, serene and dignified. Once in a while he  would speak to his wife  in his soft voice, sometimes  he would pick up his paddle  and give a few quick strokes to  correct their course.  I did not get to know  Dan Johnson until I opened  my store in Garden Bay.  He came in once in a while,  but was always quiet and  reserved. Gradually we became friends and he would  talk to me of the old days,  when many of his people  lived in Garden Bay. His eyes  would sparkle when he told of  the fun they had, the girls they  chased and the tricks they  played. Too often our conversations were interrupted by  customers, but one of the  stories he told me stays in  my memory. Let's call it the  Legend of Deserted Bay -  Tsoh-Nye. I will not attempt to  use his words, just to tell the  story I heard and add my own  asides.  When the white man came  to the coast the native people  were very interested in all the  strange things he did, and  delighted   in   watching   his  every day life, his work and  certainly   his   amusements.  Gastown, as the only large  centre of white population on  the lower mainland coast was  a favourite place for "white  man watching" and native  families would travel by canoe  to Gastown and spend days or  even weeks visiting with other  families and together with  them watching the white man  with great interest and quiet  amusement. The jobs the  white man did, the tools he  used to do them, the clothes  he wore, the food he ate and  the houses he lived in. All  these held their interest  because you must remember  the native people for the most  part had never seen any of  these things before and they  were totally different from the  native ways.  Of particular interest was  the white man's habit of  drinking for pleasure and then  getting into arguments and  fights and maybe even ending  up in jail. Some native people  tried this strange custom with  most unhappy results.  One other thing the white  man had brought was disease,  diseases like chickenpox,  measles and smallpox. The  white man had been exposed  to these diseases for generations, and had developed a  large degree of immunity to  them, chickenpox and measles  being mostly considered as  minor inconveniences - smallpox was much worse but not  too serious.  For the native people none  of this held true. They had  never been exposed to these  diseases and had no immunity  and even worse, they had no  idea how to treat people  suffering from these diseases.  The result was that measles  and chickenpox were all too  often killing diseases to them  and smallpox was virtually  fatal.  A group of native people  from Jervis Inlet were in  Gastown when an outbreak of  smallpox occurred. When they  saw the white people become  ill and saw the ugly spots, they  decided this was no place to  be, so they gathered their  belongings and their children,  packed them in their canoes  and headed quickly back up  the Inlet ��� mostly to Tsoh Nye.  Little did they realize that  they were carrying not only  their children and belongings,  but an invisible cargo of  smallpox incubating in their  blood streams.  Some time later two white,  men were fishing off Tsoh  Nye, which was quite a large  settlement. As they fished,  they realized that although  many canoes were drawn up  above the high tide mark,  showing the people were  home, there was no sign of  any activity, nor was there  any smoke coming from the  houses. They talked about this  and finally their curiosity  got the better of them and  they went in to the beach to  investigate. To their surprise  they found the place was  deserted, not a soul to be  seen - so they looked in the  houses and there were dead  men, women and children ���  obviously all smallpox victims.  Both the men had had  smallpox so it did not scare  them and, despite the gruesome surroundings, figured  they should look around in  case anybody was still alive.  They went into house after  house in this fair-sized village  only to be greeted with  deathly silence in each one.  They were about to give up  their search and get back to  their boat and some fresn  clean air, when they heard  a baby cry. They looked in  the next house and there was  an infant girl at her dead  mother's breast, barely alive  but still sucking at the dry  breast.  They took the baby girl  to the beach, washed her well  in the salt chuck, wrapped her  in some clean cloth and  headed for Gastown, leaving  behind the death and desolation of what later became  known to the white man as  Deserted Bay, because the  natives, believing it cursed,  did not go there.  When Dan had got this far,  his voice was very low and his  eyes were sad with remembering - then a ghost of a  smile played over his face  and his eyes regained their  usual hint of mischief - and he  said "That girl grew up to  be a beautiful lady and she  married a good man and had  many children."  That's one story of why it's  called Deserted Bay.  RKTOllE  0WR  '��   NO NONSENSE  DIET  The NO NONSENSE DIET formula is a concentrated source of  nutrients in a delicious beverage base lorm.

VON IVO  ���MMMI  _t_^_^_t_t_tm  MHtMtte  MM Coast News, December 9, 1980  Something about Christmas  Maryanne  viewpoi  by Maryanne West  "Write something about  Christmas" a friend asked,  going on to say that she was  always saddened to hear so  many people complaining  when Christmas should be one  of the happiest seasons of the  year.  Christmas Day itself, and in  fact, the twelve days of  Christmas always seem to zip  by too fast to really accomplish  all the things you plan to do  during the holiday, so I  suspect the secret of the joy of  Christmas comes in the  looking forward to it and the  preparations. And I'm sure  that joy comes in large part  from the traditions which  every family develops over the  years, some of which change,  or ate adapted to meet changing circumstances. Most  important are the special  foods to be prepared, which  are only enjoyed at this  season, special decorations to  be made, a family outing to  find a Christmas tree perhaps,  a visit to Santa, the school  concert and of course Church  observances of the festival.  We have been particularly  lucky in having the traditions  of two cultures to draw on,  especially the German background, so rich in Weihnacht  symbolism.  The Christmas season,  though, begins usually at  Thanksgiving, when daughters can be expected home for  the weekend and they like to  keep the old English tradition  of everyone making a wish as  they stir the Christmas pudding. It's still the traditional  Christmas pudding, heavy  with fruit and nuts, served  ceremoniously with a sprig  of holly, but we usually save  it for New Year's Day; it's  really too rich to follow turkey  and all the trimmings.  The countdown to Christmas really starts on the last  weekend in November, usually the first Sunday in Advent  when German families make  or buy an Adventzkranz,  a wreath of fir to hang in their  window. I use cedar because  it's easier to work with and  doesn't drop needles. The  wreath is bound with red  ribbon and hangs by four red  ribbons from the ceiling. It has  four fat red candles one to be  lit for each of the Sundays  in Advent.  When the children were  small they each had an Advent  Calendar with a door to open  on each day of December up to  Christmas Eve, a delightful  European custom guaranteed  to get even lie-a-beds up in the  morning, We used to have  ours sent by relatives but now  you can buy them in many  stores across Canada, in  Gibsons they're usually quickly sold out.  December 6th is the Feast  of St. Nicholas, looked forward  to by many European children  but unknown to English  children when I was growing  up. Our children put their  shoes outside the door on St.  Nicholas' Eve, in the. shoes  Lebkuchen for St. Nicholas,  a carrot for his big white  horse and the letters to Santa  Claus which English children  would throw onto the fire so  that the draught took them up  the chimney en route for the  North Pole. In Germany, St.  Nicholas brings candy for  good children, and ours  usualy received a pair of mitts  as well, it being that time of  year.  Lebkuchen is a honey  and spice cookie only made  at this time of year and  there are as many variations I  think as there are German  families, ranging from cookies  to a cake-like bar and depending upon which part of the  country you came from.  After the Lebkuchen .the  serious business of. making  Weihnacht's Gebaeck begins.  When I inherited my Mother-  in-law's cookie cutters I gave  up making . the traditional  English cake and. mince  pies and we now celebrate  Christmas with a host of  special cookies, Springerle,  Zimmt Sterne, Spritz Pfeffer-  neusse and many others. And  this year the added joy of snow  falling steadily outside to  enhance the warmth of the  kitchen and the fragrant  smells.  It was of course most fun  when the children, were all  here and cookie making was a  family entertainment, but  Janie, the Boxer, does her  best to make up for their  absence. Appointing herself  the official taster she sits close  beside me, her big brown eyes  smiling hopefully, and although I can't see it I know her  little stumpy tail wags joyfully  whenever I look at her. Young  Schnickelfritz doesn't understand yet what Christmas is  all about, but he soon catches  on when he hears Janie  eating!  For those who keep the old  tradition of candles on the  tree, lighting it is a ceremonial  occasion each night from  Christmas Eve to Twelfth  Night. When the children  were small it didn't stay lit  very long, even though we  sang carols by its soft light,  the little ones were too eager  for their turn to blow the  candles outl Then of course it  was off to bed with those long  I '   _                     ________\\___J J  ^F>*t_^_*  _��_____ iV'-^mm  mm    < J ���'  ~__.      _m  K*1    LiF"__.____                              A  BpsM  E  \ ^ if ���ISl       /  !l t  ���Jf^-         *  t^**  ��� \  >���__       __mA  .-*.   *\                         1  capilano  college  Invitea applications for  temporary part-time instructor  for Its  BUSINESS MAM8EMEIIT  Local Girl Guides were wide-eyed and eager to help thc crowds that visited their Christmas goods  stand in Sunnycrest Mall on Saturday.  empty stockings to hand at the  foot ofthe bed.  Is there a more evocative  memory of childhood when  waking up on Christmas  morning, reaching along the  bed in the dark for that  bulging sock, recognizing  familiar shapes and exploring  the odd and unusual ones  until excitement got the better  of one and on went the lights?  The formal exchange of  gifts around the tree waits  until the dog has bad a walk  and the morning chores are  done and is always enjoyed  to the accompaniment of an  excited Boxer, dancing in the  paper wrappings, checking  your presents for eatable  goodies, ail the while squeaking her new rubber mouse.  This year there will be. a  squeaky mouse for Schnickel  too, and if he catches on, and  he tends to take his cue from  Janie, there will be a chorus of  squeaks to enliven the party.,  I'm running out of space  and there are so many more  nice things about Christmas,  the making or finding of the  just right gift you know will  bring pleasure, the familiar  music, even if it rings in your  ear in the supermarket and  best of all the letters from  friends whom we haven't  seen for many a year keeping  us in touch and up to date with  their lives.  Without Christmas would  we get in touch so regularly  every year? 1 doubt I would, as  it is when Twelfth Night rolls  around and all the decorations  are stored away for another  year, I still have letters to  write to patient friends who  write me every year in time for  Christmas in the faith that I'll  get around to replying before  midsummer.

Two applications rejected
Foreshore leases discussed in Gibsons
The issue of foreshore leases in the Gibsons Harbour area
became a major topic at last Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons
council.
Council received a copy of a letter addressed to HJNJ
Enterprises from District Land Manager Larry Sorken, in which
Mr. Sorken advised Harry Smith, Gibsons Harbour Master and
operator of a barging and towing business in Howe Sound, that
council was opposed to his application for a waterlot lease near
the beacon in Gibsons Harbour on the grounds that such a lease
would be detrimental to the aesthetics of the area.
Mr. Smith stated that he had merely filled out the forms given
him by Mr. Sorken, which proved to be an application for a
waterlot lease. Mr. Smith also pointed out that the area in
The Mundells and Stewarts
wish to announce Ihe sale ol
J. B. Excavating Ltd.
In future, it will be known as
J. B. Excavating 1980, Ltd.
886-9031
We would like to thank our customers for their
patronage, and our employees for their dedication.
We wish the new owners every success in Ihe
future.

question is a shallow reef area, so the mooring of barges would
not interfere with navigation in the harbour.
"I'm suggesting we try it for a year," Smith said, "If you decide
it's unsightly, I'll move it."
Mayor Goddard advised Mr. Smith that council would be
prepared to .consider his application for a yearly Licence of
Occupation.
Council also received a copy of a letter addressed to the
attention of Municipal Planner Rob Buchan, from Diamond J
Properties Ltd. of Vancouver, protesting council's rejection of
their application for a foreshore lease in conjunction with a
proposed townhouse development for Lot 8, Blocks D, H and J.
(Site of the old Gibsons Pool Hall).
Ihe letter also made reference to the Regional Board's recent
invitation for written public comment on the granting of
foreshore leases which Mr. Rowledge said he suspected, "brought
predictable viewpoints as probably 95% ofthe respondents would
be from property owners who do nol own waterfront property."
Alderman Larry Trainor took strong exception to the brief
sixth paragraph in which Rowledge stated "I realize that most
politicians are sensitive to public opinion, but I do think the
recommendations of qualified Planning Consultants should carry
more weight."
"Planners are hired by council to give professional opinions,
not to make decisions. That is our prerogative", Trainor stated
forcefully.
Trainor recommended that council take note ofthe proposed
foreshore lease guidelines recently drawn up by the Regional
Board's Waterlot Lease Committee and that council consider
establishing similar guidelines to govern future waterlot lease
applications within the Village's jurisdiction.
The letter was referred to Planner Rob Buchan.

J\ .99  Christmas Crackers  il  I have this wretched friend. I suppose fate deals us all  one. She phoned me up the other day and reminded me  that in this very space a few weeks 030 I'd written about  making gingerbread houses. 77/ bet you haven't made  yours yet," she said, with that smug tone that friends  who know you produce when they know they've caught  you out. Of course, she was right. My alter ego had told  me that I should have, and I'd agreed, and when I'd  agreed I figured I'd done enough and promptly forgot all  about it. My friend soon sorted me out. She invaded my  kitchen and we spent a busy afternoon making not just  one but six gingerbread houses. As you read this we  should be slapping icing on our "villages" so that they  resemble the present state of the Sunshine Coast. I'm  thinking of changing the whole game for next year. How  d'you fancy a beach scene with ginger...bread palm  trees!  Fool-proof Gingerbread  1 cup shortening  2 cup sugar  1 cup molasses  I  2 tablespoons vinegar  1/2 teaspoon salt  1 tablespoon ground ginger  1 teaspoon cinnamon  1 teaspoon ground chves  5 cups flour  1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda  It's awful stuffto rollout. I've found the easiest way for  me is to put some directly into a baking sheet, place  some waxed paper over top and roll it out in the tray  until it's about 3/8" thick, lusea glass bottle to get right  in to the corners. Tuke your templates and with a sharp  knife cut round each piece. Remove off the bits you  aren't going to bake and plonk thembackinyour mixing  bowl for later use. Bake at 350 degrees F for eight  minutes.  When baked place on a cooling rack and when quite  cold place in an airtight tin for a week before you start  building. Then plaster your edifice together with king  made from icing sugar and egg whites and let your  imagination run riot. Place when completed in some  inaccessible spot out of the reach of smartie snatchers  and gum drop gobblers!  Christmas does creep up on one. / decided this was  the year I was not going to send Happy New Year  parcels.

I just can't keep this to myself.  Each Monday morning I make the weekly  draw for $50.00 worth of free groceries, as  advertised in the bottom right corner of our  ad. Last week, because I was away this duty  was overlooked.  Along came Eileen Spencer, who is one of  our regular patrons, complaining to Liz that  . the draw had not been made, and she wasn't  going to leave until it was, - all this in a spirit  of fun and good will, of course!  Liz, realizing our oversight, immediately  got the box, shook it, put her hand in and  stirred the tickets around. She then offered  Eileen the chance to make the weekly draw.  Need I say more? Up came Eileen with her  own ticket! After the pretended 'fuss' Liz  said that the expression of embarrassment  and surprise on Eileen's face was a sight to  behold.  Congratulations, Eileen! What motivated  you to ensure that the draw was made in  your presence, and that your own ticket  came up, is one of those strange things like  another incident I'd like to tell about.  About eight or ten weeks ago, I prepared  to make the draw as usual. I opened the box  after mixing up the tickets really well and  pulled out the 'chance' winner and announced the name to Tina Arthur, our bookkeeper for her records. Gp ..    \ ������.���.  In my horror, I noticed that in my  exuberant shaking of the box, I had dropped  a ticket on the floor. I felt guilty to think that  the owner of the ticket on the floor didn't  have a chance. As I reached down to pick it  up, I saw that the ticket on the floor had the  same name on it as the winner just declared!  As I say, - these two people were simply  meant to win and it conjures up strange  thoughts about chance and circumstance.  The weekly Real Win $50.00 food draws  were started to offset other types of chance  games being offered. It was also an attempt  to show our genuine appreciation, in a  useful manner, to a substantial number of  our patrons in this our 10th anniversary  year.  It is a very popular feature. Although we  offered this weekly prize only to the end of  1980, and are now planning a master draw of  all non-winners for a larger sum, we are  looking at the possibility of continuing with  our draws in the New Year for a month or  two at least.

'14  w*m  Coast News, December 9, 1980  mmmwrnmrn  A tough trip  Ramblings  of a Rover  bv Dee Cee  There is a well-known saying  ' that "history repeats itself and  1 am  not about to produce  ' evidence to the contrary or try  , in  any  way  to  refute  that  'statement.  I had experienced  ' cold and hungerduringmy first  ! winter in Canada and now in  ' the early spring of 19301 wasto  have to undergo those miseries  once again. The only difference  being that I was more or less  stationary in Montreal the first  time while now I was moving  , from   place   to   place,  either  hitchhiking on thc highways or  more often riding thc freights.  While the stock markets had  been crashing and it was  reported that financiers were  jumping oul of 14th storey  buildings on Wall Street, Bay  Street or St. James' Street  (what difference did the name  of the street make on that  fateful 29th of October 1929?).  Sid and I had been comfortably  tucked away in the north  woods of Ontario working for  thc American firm of Carpenter & Hixon and neither of us  had any conception of the vast  scale of the depression that was  to follow, if we were aware of it  at all.  1 think 1 have mentioned  before that conditions in  Canada were none too good  preceding the crash and not  only were jobs in short supply  bin le wages paid for one's  labour were pitifully low. Now,  howev r, with the odd excep-  tio, ���', farm work there were no  job d all and many of the  fai is, desperately in need of  hew., were beset with low prices  foi leir produce and were  unarii.- to pay wages for that  help and had to struggle along  the best they could in order to  feed themselves, their families  and their stock and still have a  little left over when tax time  rolled around.  Alter our experiences in  Sudbury with that half-demented, rubbing alcohol saturated  ex-miner, Sid and I stopped  over briefly al North Bay in our  quest for work. Finding none,  we proceeded first to Ottawa,  or rather Hull, then on to  Montreal. Still no work, but it  was in that latter city that we  heard there were all kinds of  jobs   to   be   had   in   Saint  John, New Brunswick, where  there had been a disastrous fire  in the harbour that winter and  they were now in the process of  rebuilding.  Up to this time we had been  paying our way on the trains  but now with our resources  practically non-existent, our  only means of getting to Saint  John was to hop a freight. For  me to attempt to portray what  it was like to ride a freight train  in the latter part of March is  about ai futile as trying to  describe a violent storm at sea  or the beauties of the Taj  Mahal to someone who has  never seen either. I rode quite a  few freights in those Depression years and I think I can  truthfully say that this was one  of the worst trips 1 have ever  undertaken. Not only was it a  miserable and freezing experience but it was only too  evident that the combined  forces of the train crews,  railroad bulls and provincial  police were all out to make it as  difficult as they possibly could,  to prevent us from reaching our  objective. As the years went by  it appeared, to me at least, that  they relented a little, were not  quite so dedicated in their  animosity towards the hoboes  who were forced to use this  method of transportation.  Perhaps it was the impossibility  of trying to stop so many  hundreds, or it could have been  a softening in their attitude  towards us. However that trip  will forever stand out as a  nightmare and should have  been enough to deter even the  most obstinate from ever riding  the rods again.  I cannot remember, nor do I  wish to, how many times we  were thrown off only to hike a  few miles of roads and then,  usually at night at some lonely  water station, hop on to  another freight and socontinue  our journey. It was an Odyssey  of sorts and one that I would  not care to repeat, but eventually we did reach Sainl John  only to discover that all thejobs  had been taken long ago and  that Ihe odds of our finding  work in the future were about  equal to that of one buying a  ticket on a lottery in the vain  hope of winning a fortune.

We were both of us not  only soaked to the skin as we  had been tramping all day in a  steady downpour of rain mixed  with snow hut so famished we  would have eaten almost  anything. We searched the  place, which was not large,  from room to room and  eventually came on a large,  tightly sealed tin that on  opening proved to contain  rolled oats. We already had a  mm  roaring Are going in the camp  stove, as the porch was well  stocked with split logs and even  kindling. Finding a somewhat  dilapidated, slightly rusted pot  we half filled it with snow and  ice and, as soon as it came to  the boil, dumped in the oats  and made a king of �� half  porridge, half gruel supper for  ourselves. We had no salt, no  sugar, no milk but it warmed  up our bellies to a remarkable  degree so that later, stretched  out on the floor near the stove  and rolled up in some drapes  we took down, we were able to  forget our miseries and get a  few hours of sleep, before  daylight arrived and warned us  to get to hell out of there and be  on our way.  A few days and nights in  Saint John and a few free bowls  of soup or a sandwich at some  mission and Sid had had  enough, and who could blame  mmmmmm  mm  him? I don't think he really was  settled in his mind to make  Canada his permanent home,  even had times been better and  existence not so precarious.  Anyway, one morning he  announced he was heading for  Halifax to try for a job on a  cattle boat going to England.  Whether he ever made it or not  I never found out, but I  declined his offer to accompany him as, although my  future appeared bleak, there  was nothing left in the old land  for me. Sure, I had parents  there, brothers and a sister, but  I had made a mess of things  over there before I left and I  was still too unsettled to  entertain the idea of going back  and starting all over again.  What the future held God  only knew. Perhaps there were  more punishments in store but  so help me 1 was far from  finished and deep down I really  liked this country and it's free  and easy ways, compared with  the stuffiness and narrow-  minded attitude of those I had  left behind in the Old Country.  We shook hands, gave each  other a friendly grin and so we  parted. Sid heading east for  Halifax and I, shouldering my  packsack, retracing my way  west to further adventures. Call  it fate, call it Kismet, I guess  that's the way it had to be.  ELECTROHOMB  Sales & Service  SUNSHINE COAST T.V.  885-9816  Kire and police were quickly on the scene to extinguish an  equipment fire at Fiedlers pit  on Stuart Road last Wednesday.  Windmill Wildcatters  by Joan Huestts Foster  A bunch of us were lounging about one evening thinking vitriolic thoughts about  homely old Hydro and her'relentless pursuit of our inflation-dwindled pay cheques.  Thus was born a small clever  group of dedicated souls  calling themselves the "Windmill Wildcatters". "We'll  all build windmills and beat  them at their own game,"  was our rallying cry I My  thoughts leaned towards a  sort of Holland Highlands,  through Roberts Creek and  around Gower Point. I could  see multi-coloured floral painted paddle wheels sweeping  lazily in the sunlit ocean  breezes. We could feel the  warm spreading satisfaction  of sending bills to Hydro,  charging interest for late  payment, or charging a nominal rental for any of their  poles encroaching on our land.  A visionary lof, our plans  were laid, several volumes  were purchased and all were  encouraged, by the books, to  carry this thing through.  One ardent charter exponent  of the idea garnered a slightly  rusted voltage regulator from  a dead Oldsmobile in his  garden. Our first piece of  authentic equipment! Our  enthusiasm was rampant.  We began lining up old  batteries from the junk yard.  Anyone with any thought or  talent to contribute to this  venture was hailed as a  dedicated hero. Mechanics,  teachers and of course painters.  We abandoned ourselves to  glorious planning which in-  ill!  eluded as a matter of course  National Magazine write-ups  with witty profiles. Our  homemade future pools and  Jacuzzis were free (that lovely  word) Free to keep churning  and steaming at no cost to us  at all. We decided to dispense  power with understandable  generosity to our more likeable neighbours.  Then we spoke to someone  who knew someone on Cortez  Island who had a Windmill.  This chap had really studied  the whole business and so  much for the nice warm  bubbles. The Windmill man  had acquired four thousand  dollars worth of left-over  Government batteries and  those were a bargain. The  tower has to be fifty or sixty  feet high, steel and well  clamped into the ground, guy  wires etc., lest the wind that  runs it also topple it. How  would our nice neighbours  appreciate that? The damned  thing is in a constant state of  disrepair and requires diligent  and ceaseless maintenance.  It's worse than chickens, you  can't go anywhere and really  splendid for refreezing food.  The total cost is somewhere  above eight thousand and the  gentleman's pragmatic suggestion was that if we had the  eight thou why not invest it  and use the interest to pay  Hydro. He just shattered our  bright yellow dreams.  Oh well, if there weren't  any dreamers in this world  there wouldn't be any dreams  and that wouldn't be much  fun. It was nice while it  lasted... even better than the  Sweepstake dream.  These may be the most mixed up times  in history but they will probably never be  any better, and one thing for sure, you'll  never see better prices for motor bikes,  or better quality either.

I  normally don't think of Christmas till they start playing carols  on the streets of lower Gibsons.  Having short circuited the T. V.  set last spring I have yet to be  subjected to the barrage of  commercials urging me to buy.  This year I decided that I would  make all the gifts, so in October  I got busy but so far I have one  completed and only eight more  to go. Last year when I was  ' working full time I bought all  the gifts in lower Gibsons,  thereby missing out on the  glitter of the city department  stores. If you can't make your  own gifts, patronizing local  ���tores and craftsmen is the next  best idea.  Christmas needn't be a time  to plunge into deep debt. Try to  use more ingenuity than money  in selecting gifts. Why not give  home-made jam in a fancy jar  or cookies in a decorated box?  Dig out some old family photos  and have them enlarged. Find  an old frame that fits and you  have a gift that will be appreciated for years to come.  For decorating the tree try  the following recipe and make  dough babies. You'll need:  3 cups flour  I cup of salt  enough  water  to make a  kneadable dough  Tempera Paint if desired  Fine copper wire  Mix flour with salt and add  enough water so that the dough  is easy to knead. If you add too  much just let the dough sit till it  dries out a bit. Wrap the dough  in plastic to keep it moist while  you pinch off pieces and shape  them into ornaments. The  recipe is sufficient to construct  25 creations about 2 inches  high. Make snowmen, elves or  Christmas trees or whatever  you fancy.  Make a loop of fine copper  wire and insert in the top of  each ornament for hanging on  the tree. Slip your works of art  onto a cookie sheet and bake in  a 350 degree oven till golden  brown. To prevent swelling as  they bake, punch holes or make  deep cuts in the thick portions  of each design. Make the marks  part of the decoration. After  cooling you may paint if you  desire but they look delightful  in their natural brown cookie  colour. To make them last for  years dip each one in poly-  urethane.  This is also a good project for  the kids on the weekends as  they recipe is simple enough for  them to manage by themselves.  You could also make the  ornaments smaller and add a  pin or a chain and create some  pop art jewelry.

The Act provides legislation governing the transportation of  dangerous goods by sea, land or air. Until now, regulations varied  with each different method of transportation.  Don Williams, Assistant Regional Manager for the Provincial  Emergency Program in the lower mainland was on hand to show  slides and answer questions.  Williams said the implementation of the new program was a  result of the growing awareness of potential hazards involved in  the transportation of dangerous goods. In addition to providing  simplified legislation, the government has made provisions for  training of emergency response personnel and centralized sources  of information. The program as a whole is designed to provide  quick accurate identification of dangerous goods and to provide  means to deal with spills and accidents.  Local member of the voluntary Are department Ron Marchuk  has already completed a course for trainers in Vancouver and  Trev Goddard, also of Gibsons, has been selected to attend the  next course in January.  6  0  Q Q Q Q Q Q Q Q W&W&  ''   DISCOUNT  PRICES!

InglU  The most precious commodity in the believer's diet is  prayer, provided it is working  effectively as a direct communications link between the  believer and his or her deity.  Whether the prayer is a crude  and unsophisticated link between an aboriginal, entailing  sacrifice and ancient ritual, or  whether it is a polished and  well-edited prayer contained in  an order of service and offered  in a huge cathedral, its function  is the same���to draw the  believer closer to the supernatural being whom he or she  worships.  In the Christian concept,  there is the added dimension���  the believer offers the prayer to  a deity, God, whom he believes  came to this earth in human  forms, as Jesus of Nazareth,  whose birth the Christian  community celebrates each  year, and whose returning to  earth in glory is the vital focus  of the Christian belief.  Any prayer that is offered up  to any deity must contain the  ingredients of faith and belief in  order to make the prayer valid  for the person praying and  bring some measure of comfort  and reassurance in a favourable  reception of that prayer by the  deity to whome it is addressed.  The Christian who prays has  a definite knowledge, enlightened by faith of "the  assurance of things hoped for,  the conviction of things not  seen." (Hebrews 11:1)  He or she also has the  assurance that he or she is  praying to a God, who has  experienced in his earthly  ministry as Jesus Christ, all of  the temptations, weaknesses,  digressions that the flesh is heir  to, and yet has promised to  forgive all of the sins of  mankind except one���the refusal to seek forgiveness.  The Christian prays in the  name of the incarnate God,  Jesus Christ, the one who  walked this earth and experienced all of the emotions of  mankind, resisting evil and  practicing constant obedience  to his Father in heaven���doing  what he did even to the point of  offering up his life as an  expiation for mankind's sins.  Because he or she has this  What is the use  of prayer?  Mediator, Jesus Christ, the  Christian has been told, in the  recorded words of Jesus, that  whatever he asks of the Father,  he may give it to him or her.  The history of Christians, in  the years since Jesus Christ  walked this earth is filled with  exciting and awe-inspiring tales  of answered prayer.  Men and women have almost literally moved mountains through prayer, have been  strengthened to endure tremendous hardships and pain  with optimism through prayer,  have engaged in titanic tasks of  mission and stewardship toward their fellow men and  women through prayer, and  have endured persecution, pain  and death through prayer.  Why then is it that prayer  seems to have become a rare  commodity in so many quarters? Why are so many people  questioning the efficacy of  prayer? Why do so many  nominal Christians themselves  question the possibility of  prayers being answered?  There is no easy answer! But  some of the answer might be  found in Jesus' own words,  when he says his Father may  answer your prayer���there is a  conditional note in this!  Pursuing this point, it is  profitable to look at Matthew  6:8, where Jesus is telling his  disciples how to practice their  piety in the eyes of men; on the  subject of prayer he tells them  not to go heaping up empty  phrases, or praying in public to  be seen and heard by men, and  he adds: "Do not be like them,  for your Father knows what  you need before you ask him."  Then Jesus goes on to teach  his disciples how to pray, in the  words which have probably  been used more than any other  prayer in the English language-  the Lord's Prayer.  Notice how, in this prayer,  the only things that Jesus asks  for are "our daily bread,''  forgiveness of debts (sins),  removal from temptation and  deliverance from evil.  Everything else is left in the  hands of God, who knows our  every need before we ask him!  Jesus himself, in the one time  when he questioned his mission  in the world, and the death of  shame on the cross, prayed to  have his "cup" of sorrows taken  away from him, but even then,  in his bitter sorrow, he still said,  "My Father if this cannot pass  unless I drink it, thy will be  done." (Matthew 26:42).  All of this seems to beg the  question: "If God knows what  you need before you ask him,  what is the use of praying?"  And truly, the answer would  seem to be: "No use at all!"  But the answer should be  probed a little more deeply, and  the question that should be  asked is: "Who is the benefactor from prayer?"  If the answer to this question  is unselfish, then surely it  would lead us to see that prayer  is not a one-way street, a  message for requests only, but a  loving communication between  those whom God loves and  those who love God!  Confirmation may be found  through the life and ministry of  Jesus, and the manner in which  he prayed to his Father at all  hours of the day and night and  sometimes all night, offering  his love, his obedience, his  service, and receiving in return  assurance of God's love, mercy  and constant devotion.  This, then, may be the  answer we seek���prayer is not a  selfish device to benefit men at  the expense of God, but a two-  way communication of love  and devotion, a mutual act of  loving kinship!  If you have been grumbling as you clean the snow off your car, put yourself in the shoes of the car  dealerships on the coast.  Canada Safety Council  Christmas safety involves  more than the Christmas tree.  The Canada Safety Council  points out some of the hazards  associated with the holiday  season and gives practical tips  to keep it merry:  A host's responsibility in  parties and gatherings is to  assure the safety of guests and  to give them a pleasant "morning after" instead of a hangover. Always respect the wishes  of any guest who says "No  thanks" to the offer of a drink,  especially if he or she is going to  drive.  Heavy traffic is to be expected during the holidays. Snow  and ice are hazards you are  likely to encounter, so reduce  your speed and increase your  following distance. When dri-'  ving through a business district, watch out for shoppers;  they are often overloaded with  packages and might not see you  in time.  Buyers of natural trees for  decoration should look for  freshness because a freshly cut  tree reduces fire hazards. Keep  it away from drapes and heat  sources. Make sure it does not  block doorways and fire exist.  Use only non-flammable decorations and Canadian Standards Association certified  lighting sets. Coloured spotlight above or beside a metallic  tree are safer than strings of  lights on the branches. If there  are small children in the home,  avoid decorations that are  sharp and breakable.  Purchase only toys which  suit a child's age. Unsuitable  toys could lead to frustration oi  accident. Look for the manufacturer's safety information  on the toy packaging such as  "non-toxic" or "non-flammable" and follow the manufacturer's safety recommendations.

Places were  set for 60 persons and in spite  of the snow only a handful of  members were unable to  make it.  The cold weather and the  scent of delicious foods  created keen appetites and  empty plates were soon up  for refills. The club remembered the success of last  year's event and so pressed  Win Hornet to be convenor  once again. She scored another very fine effort. Win also  did a bit of pressing herself  by co-opting her good husband Len to be master of  ceremonies. He kept things  rolling along in good fashion.  Santas Tom Johnson and Colin  Cole saw that everyone  received a Christmas present.  The writer of this piece  received a painting of a small  rustic cabin that seemed to  be defying and defeating the  ravaging attacks of sun, wind  and storm. The brush of Kay  Cole created this most appreciated gift.  Thanks go to Belle Dube for  making the excellent table  decorations, each with a  Christmas motif, of course,  and to Eric Redland for decorating the tree.

Commenting on evidence before the Commons committee  considering the bill by Postmaster-General Andre Ouellet, the  West Coast MP said he is disappointed to find the new postal  corporation will provide what is called "customary postal  service".  "Customary postal service in my riding means you can wait up  to one month for a letter to be delivered," Skelly said.  Skelly said he was shocked to hear Ouellet claim that  communities such as Courtenay, Campbell River, Port Hardy,  Powell River, Gibsons and Sechelt are "remote areas" and that  first class postal service provided at 17 cents per letter was more  than satisfactory for such "remote areas".  "When Ouellet responded to my questions by saying that  service to those communities in my riding was second to no other  postal service in the world, I was astounded", Skelly said.  The New Democrat M P said the new postal corporation should  be required to provide five-day delivery to every door within his  constituency and to expand rural routes where numbers warrant.  He called on the government to make sure the new corporation  operates six-day post office counter service in those communities  without home delivery.  Nature as an artist is never bested.

The back  seat and upholstery had been  removed so it was pssible to  stack in a pretty good load of  wood. It was also used to haul  dogs, dead cougars, a 'mo-  witch' (Indian for deer) now  and then, whether they were in  season or not. When we needed  meat a deer was shot.  Such was our need at the  moment. The weather had  turned cold so Perse figured we  could hangacarcass in the barn  for quite a while before it got  too high. Refrigeration was a  luxury we could not afford in  them thar days.  After a couple of days of  getting settled into our new  - home, Perse figured it was time  ��� to get me started in my new  - career as a bounty hunter.  Old  Ted  had not had a  > workout for quite some time  ��� and he had been telling Brown  j so in his dog-man-talk which  only he and his master understood. And as the deer season  was still open, we could do a  little meat hunting at the same  time.  The old Timberland logging  | road leaves the Island Highway  just about opposite to what is  now the Nanaimo-Cassidy  Airport. She runs for miles  away back into the Rhinehart  country south of Nanaimo  Lakes and the headwaters of  Haslam Creek. It was wild and  desolate country then, miles  and miles of prime, dense  forests. It was into this forest  that the deeply rutted, abandoned logging road led us on  that cold, November morning.  A heavy overcast was just  moving in to cover the hunters  moon and the bright sparkling  stars that had been shining  when we left home a couple of  hours before. The sky was just  beginning to lighten and we  could smell snow in the air. The  game would be moving this  morning.  Percy had managed to turn  the old car around in the  narrow, rutted track, had  squeezed her off to one side of  the trail, shut her down and  drained her. "Cheaper than  buying anti-freeze", he grinned.  As soon as Perse opened the  rear door to unload our packs,  Ted leaped out like he'd been  sprung from a trap. Christening three of four trees, he  took off down a barely visible  trail, his tail beating the air like  the arm of a high speed  metronome. His nose was on  the ground and he was talking  to Brown in little, throaty barks  that only his master understood. He was telling him he  was hard at work as he  disappeared down the forest  trail.  Brown puckered a sharp  whistle through his teeth, then  shouted, "Ted! Come back  here. You ain't ready to go to  work and you know it!"  A moment later Ted reappeared, looking a bit foolish,  like he'd been caught with paw  in the cooky jar.  "Come "ere!", Perse called.  Then as Ted ran to him and  slammed his big paws to his  chest, he scolded, "Get down,  ya' big clown. Wait'l I get your  bell out!"  He dug in the breast pocket  of his rainvest, fished out a  small, steel sheep bell and  removed a piece of wadding  from the clapper. He gave it a  couple of tinkles for my benefit.  "This bell works for me as  well as for the old man here", he  explained as he wrestled Ted  between his legs to hold him  still. Loosening one end of the  collar, he slipped the strap  through the bell slot. "This is  like handing a man his tools  and telling him 'now get to  work'!"  Ted was in such a frenzy to  get on with the job Perse could  hardly restrain him, but when  free, went bounding down the  trail, sending back his messages  of "never fear, old Ted's here!"  After shouldering our packs,  picking up our rifles, and  taking a last look around, we  headed down the trail that  would take us into the Haslam  Creek cabin. Here we would  brew up a coffee, then leaving  our packs, would head out in  different directions; Perse and  Ted toward Haslam Creek  canyon and me into a little,  nearby meadow where deer  were supposed to often feed.  The idea was to get Ted out of  sight and earshot before I was  to shoot a deer. It takes many  months and sometimes years to  train a dog from running deer,  but when one is shot while on a  hunt with a working dog, he is  apt to think it is part of the  game. We would have to be  careful.  We were stopping every now  and then to listen for the bell.  Perse would hold up a hand  when Ted's bark or woof held a  different note.  "He's got a big vocabulary",  Perse explained, "When he  bays'and bugles on a hot cat  track, you're going to know all  about it. But when it's smaller  game, he tells me in different  ways. A mink or marten means  a money hide I can peddle to a  fur buyer I know."  '"He knows they're important  to me so he'll call me over when  he trees one. But he hates  racoon. He's had his ears torn  up many times from fightin'  them fiesty little critters. So he  lets me know in his own way  |   ft  '<'#������*.  i - i k \  *  what he wants me to do".  We had stopped to listen to a  bit of fuss that Ted was getting  excited about, but he soon gave  it up and the little bell continued its merry tinkle as he  worked his circle around us.  We were getting near the  cabin about an hour later when  Ted let out a few excited barks,  ran a short distance, then  quieted right down and headed  for us.  "Oh, oh", exclaimed Perse.  Tut going to have to be a bit  mean here. He's bounced a deer  and let it excite him. He knows  it's wrong and he's coming in  for his swat. Watch this".  Suddenly Ted appeared in  front of us. As he looked at  Perse he seemed to sag all over.  His great ears and jowls  touched the ground; his tail  went between his legs; and he  literally dragged himself to  Perse's feet.  "How many times do I have  to tell you to knock off them  deer? Dang your scruffy old  hide", (Perse cuffed on the ear),  "one of these days I'm going to  trade you in on a couple of  whippets and a bird dog, you  keep doing that!"  He gave him a light boot on  the hip, then scolded. "Now get  back to work, you mangy old  scoundrel"!  Ted straightened up, put his  tail in the air, gave Perse an  adoring glance and raced away  into the forest with a brand new  start.  Perse looked at me and  winked. "If I didn't give him  hell for that he'd sulk all day, as  if I didn't have use for him any  more. Sometimes they're much  like kids. You can kill 'em with  kindness"!  The Professor of Dogology,  drawing on his stored up  knowledge of dogs and kids,  had spoken!

I  met Ted Strom in Gibsons and  he told me that the herring  food fishing only lasted for 27  minutes because there was  such a large fleet of sein boats  taking part that the total quota  set by the fisheries department was thought to have  been reached in that time.

Ted did not have the key to the  boat when I saw him but he  said someone would be down  at the boat later, however  wher 1 finally made contact  it was too late, as they had  sold out.  I 'phoned Dan Strom to-day  and his wife, Diane, told me  that they are trying to get a  permit from the fisheries  department in order to catch  some herring for local sale  here in Gibsons because there  have been so many people  enquiring about herring.  For those people who were  fortunate enough to get more  herring than they wanted to  have fresh cooked and were  able to put some down in salt,  why not make pickle out of  them for Christmas snacks?  Micky Jay gave me a jar of  pickled salmon that he had  just made and it is great.  This is a good way to use up  surplus herring or salmon.  The fish should be scaled  and filleted and should remain  in the salt brine, well covered  for at least a week.

Mr. N. Vucurevlch  Administrator  St. Mary's Hospital  P.O. Box 7777  Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3AO  Jack and Jill is now well into  its 12th year. It began in the  fall of 1969 when a group of  parents wanted to provide  a pre-school setting that would  develop the social, emotional,  mental and physical growth  of their children.  The school is a member of  the Parent Participation  Pre-Schools of B.C. which is  a non profit organization  owned and operated by the  parents. Qualified teachers  are employed and the school  is licensed by the Community  Care Licensing Board and is  regularly inspected by the  Health Department and Fire  Department.  In a pre-school, emphasis is  not on formal learning, such  as ABC's or I23's. The philosophy of this pre-school is  that children learn through  play. To children work is play  and play is work. Their play is  guided by teachers and  parents and the programme is  planned with specific goals in  mind, e.g. sharing, independence and muscle co-ordination etc.  Jack and Jill Pre-School  has become one of the largest  in B.C. Presently it provides  a pre-school experience for  66 children and their parents.  There are two classes of four  year olds with 18 children in  each. Lorna Dcuteau is their  leader who has been with the  school since 1974. These  children meet ever)' Monday,  Wednesday and Friday for two  hours either in the morning or  in the afternoon.  The three year old classes  have a smaller enrollment  of 15 children in each of the  two classes. They meet on a  Tuesday and Thursday for two  hours with our new teacher  Lori Thibault.  The school is most fortunate  lo have the use of St. Mary's  Parish House as their setting.  It has ideal facilities for both  indoor   and   outdoor   play.  The school has good parking  facilities off the highway and  is conveniently situated in  Upper Gibsons opposite the  swimming pool.  Parent involvement is an  essential requirement of this  pre-school. The pre-school  provides a place where you,  the parents, can share school  experiences with your children, experiences that will be  valuable   once   they   enter  public school. It is also a place  where you have a chance to  watch your children as members of a group; to find new  ways of handling children,  from observing the teacher  and the parents.  If you require information  as to how to enroll your child  for the next session in 1981,  please phone Barbara Stevenson, enrollment officer, 886-  2492.

Over the past week news  has been hitting the airwaves  about the chemical dioxin.  It has now climbed to the top  of the hit parade of deadly  man made products. (140  times more potent than nerve  gas.)  It has recently been found in  gull eggs in Lake Ontario.  The centre of investigations  at the moment, is the area  above   Niagara   Falls.   Ap-  I EXCAVATING I  patently 114 chemical dump  sites have so far been found in  that area, many of them in  areas that are now populated.  The most notorious of these  dump sites is Love Canal, a  Hooker Chemical dumping  ground. The rather romantic  (with a small r) name of  Bloody Run, has been given to  an open air ditch which runs  underneath one of these waste  sites and bubbles up on its  merry way through residential  land on its way to Lake  Ontario. Three companies,  Hooker, Olin and our old  friend Dow are all .under  the gun. There is talk of a  $600 million law suit against  Hooker.  In one factory employing 60  men, the workers are righting  for an investigation into  safety. Ten men at the plant  have already died of cancer.  In a subdivision built on top of  a land-filled dumping ground,  miscarriages were commonplace; so commonplace that  the mothers thought it was  normal until it was pointed out  to them.  To get more information on  dioxin, I phoned one of the  best sources of information I  know, Merriam Doucet. I  don't trust the unbiased  statistics from chemists who  depend on the. manufacturers  for their research grants..  Merriam has been campaigning against dioxin since  1968. One part per trillion  (lppt) is known to cause  cancer. This would be like  putting one drop of vermouth  into 45 gallons of gin for your  martini. 6ppt have been found  in trout in Lake Ontario. In  an experiment conducted by  Dr. James Allan from the  University of Wisconsin, Rhesus monkeys were given  One Doae of dioxin at SO ppt.  Half of them died. The words  One Doae are very important  as dioxin is accumulative.  It is still showing up in the  blood and fat tissues of  Vietnam veterans.  Dioxin is in many products  in wide use around the  country. Some of the places  you can expect to find it,  would be in industrial cleaning  products and materials for  wood treatment. It was also  used in the Okanagan in fruit  sprays. 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T  also release dioxin when  heated. This can happen if  there is a forest fire in an area  treated with one of these  products. During . a forest  fire, the heat at the core of the  blaze can reach temperatures  of 1300 deg. F (remember that  is at the core). It needs  1462 deg. F before dioxin will  break down.  A little side note to this is  that I was listening to the  news last week and heard the  minister of agriculture tell a  gathering of farmers that he  had weighed all the ramifications for and against the  use of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T  and decided to continue with  their use. His reasoning,  amidst a series of poorly  received jokes, was that it  is not reasonable to ban their  use as there was only a three  in a thousand chance that they  were harmful. He also spouted  the sadly common cliche, that  the chemicals have to be  proved dangerous before they  are taken off the market.  Once again the public is  sentenced at the kangaroo  courts of the chemical companies.  Snow Geeae.  Eight of these creatures  were seen passing over  Gibsons on Thursday morning. The one we get on this  side of the continent is the  lesser snow goose. It's estimated that around 500,000  use the Pacific flyway on their  migration routes. One of the  wintering grounds is the  Fraser River delta, although  the bulk of them prefer to go  further south - looking out the  window, I can hardly blame  them.  The lesser snow goose is a  good example of the different  names given to a bird in  different parts of our country.  I'll list a few of them. Brant (in  general use); Greater wavey  (Manitoba); Manitoba wavey  (Ontario); Silver (Saskatchewan); White jangler (Manitoba); White way-way (Hud-  sons Bay at the beginning  of the 19th century); Oie de  neige (early Quebec); Oie  ssuvage (Quebec). A small  book called Folk Names of  Canadian Birds by W.L.  McAfee, available from the  Queen's Printer in Ottawa,  has been a saviour for me  when I talk to people from  other parts of the country  about birds they have seen,  T.V.  The quality of some of the  television programs are turning me into an addict (this  weather is also helping).  Just in the past week there  was the show Gentle Giant of  the Pacific, about the state of  the humpback whale; David  Suzuki explaining rogue  waves in the ocean; Jacques  Cousteau gave us a couple of  hours in the Antarctic; the  Fifth Estate exposed dioxin  and Jack Websterrrrr warned  horse owners to check the  credentials of horse buyers, to  ensure that old Dobbin was  actually going to a good home  and not to the knacker's yard.  Pender wildlife.  The next meeting of the  Pender Harbour Wildlife Club  will be on December 16th at  7:30 p.m. in the Madeira  Park Elementary School Library.  Guest speaker will be Dr.  Seaman, talking about aqua-  culture. Dr. Seaman raises  oysters locally and will have  first hand knowledge pertinent to this area.  Members  of other  clubs  welcome.  Missing beagle,  Val Michaud called on Sunday afternoon to see if anyone  had heard anything on her  seven year old male beagle.  It's been missing since last  Friday.  It's brown, black and white  and may be wearing a red  collar. As it's thc family pet  it's badly missed and any  information would be appreciated. With the weather  lately, there is a chance that  it could have been hit by a  car. If so, could the driver  call 886-2802 and let them  know.  Well, that's about all the  happiness I can spread around  this week. If you want to contact me, my numbers are  886-2622, 886-7817 and 886-  9151,ta.

Next week, in "Human  Rights Too": another look at  employment and an overview  of the unique functions of the  allied Human Rights Commission.  Hunter  chairman  Regional Director David  Hunter was named again to  the position of chairman for  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District last week. Hunter was  elected by secret ballot over  Brian Stelck of Sechelt.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard of  (iibsons was elected to the  vice-chairman's position, also  over Stelck.  Sworn in at the installation  meeting which was held on  December 4th were Hunter,  director for Area F, Director  Ham Almond of Area D,  Director Peggy Connor of  Area FJ and Connor's alternate  director, Jack Mercer.  Although the Federal government has decided to terminate the  Community Services Contribution Program, it looks as though  Gibsons Bluff Sewer project will get in under the wire and receive  its share of federal funding after all. Municipal Clerk Jack  Copland told Gibsons council Tuesday night that he had received  indications that the Bluff Sewer would not be among those  projects terminated by the federal government's decision to cut  back on financial aid to municipalities.  Council received a letter from Ray Skelly, MP for Comox-  Powell River, expressing his disappointment at the cancellation of  the program.  "This move will, in my opinion," Skelly said, "place great and  unwarranted burdens on municipal taxpayers to whom a  commitment was made in 1978 that the program would continue  lor five years."  Skelly enclosed a letter from Federal NDP Leader Ed  Broadbent and NDP Urban Affairs Critic Cyril Keeper,  requesting information on the impact cancellation of the program  wilt have on individual communities,  Specifically, the letter requested estimates ofthe compounding  effect the cutback will have on increased demands on municipal  budgets, estimates of the numbers of present and potential jobs  that may be lost when projects under the program are completed,  and what eligible services the municipality may be unable to  provide as a result.  Municipal Clerk Jack Copland was instructed by council to  reply, providing the information as requested.  The letter also asked council to consider a resolution requesting  that the federal government reinstate the Community Services  Contribution Program and that the program be broadened in  scope to include development and improvement of commercial  and industrial districts.  Council did not debate thc resolution because, Mayor Goddard  later told the Coast News, "Wc have been told we're going to get  our share of thc money and we're fatalistic aboul Federal  government decisions of this kind. Wc don't feel lhat at our level  we can really bring much pressure to bear on the Federal  government."

Jfl  The /irsf storm of the winter crashes against the shore at Bonniebrook,  and brings with it logs and debris which will stay till the next high wind Photo by Ian Corrance  BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  (Editor's Note: The following series of articles were written by Mr. Dennis Shuttleworth, a practicing  engineer who now lives in Davis Bay. After retiring from the Royal Canadian Navy in 1970, he chose the  Sunshine Coast on which to settle. This choice was made after extensively studying possible locations from  throughout the world. Mr. Shuttleworth's findings coupled with his refreshing "engineer's" point of view are  as pertinent today as they were in 1970. Anyone wishing a reprint of this series in its entirety may obtain a  copy at Anderson Realty, Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.)  The next factor is accessibility. Often, very choice lots lie near the top ol a hill and  lack only a road. If you like privacy to the point of building and then maintaining your  own mile long road, you may find your patience stretched when it comes time to pay  for hydro and public water installation. The tops of hills should also be checked for the  tell-tale signs of lightning.  Natural heat and light have been dealt with briefly, earlier. For the scientific, our  latitude here is 50 degrees north of the equator, the same as Falmouth in England.  This means that on June 2lst the noon angle of the sun is 63'/2 degrees above the  horizon and the Dec. 22nd noon angle is 63'<; 47 = 16%��. Not only does this difference  in angle make our season.s and vary the lengths of our days, but also means that what  light is going on Dec. 22nd is not about to shine in a lovely north facing picture  window. The heat from such sunlight is of the order of 250 BTUs per sq. ft. of window  per hour. This is enough to take a pint of water from tap temperature to boiling. On a  large area, like a garden, the heat falling on a southern slope can advance the growth  date by 2-3 weeks over an eastern slope and 4-5 weeks over a northern. This can be  checked next spring, but a glance at snow pockets will service.  A major aspect is view. Since this is an emotional subject, there are those who love  a sea view and those who' leathe it, just as some love trees and others see only an  obstacle. The wiest course lor me is, "steer to avoid". Other equally variable points  are the size of the dream lot, whether neighbors are close or far, the location of the  nearest hospital and stores, and the distance to work.  Noise is another common problem and one of growing research importance for its  effect on mental and physical health. Road noise is the main offender here, and is at its  worst on hills, curves and speed limit change points. Hazaroud corners invite their  own special noises and nearby houses are often turned .into emergency wards.  Smell is yet another factor. For the average male, Chanel No. 5 or itsequivalent, is  an odor to be close to as possible, but the same cannot be said for tanneries,  breweries, paper mills, sewage plants or fish processing lactones.
