Array *^SX3S*  P8ttt.me��tB-u   vlX4  Victoria.*1"  90.8  The Sunshine  25' per copy on news stands  April 23,1990       Volume 44        Issue 17  Environmental groups filled the Sunnycrest Mill with displays  and performances last Saturday, as Ihey celebrated Earth Day  '90. Puppet shows, singing and videos provided entertainment  Gospel Rock By-law  for young and old alike. The displays offered valuable information on protecting the environment. ���Ellen Frith photo  Rezoning recalled In Gibsons  by Ellen Frith  Gibsons Council recalled the  Gospel Rock Zoning Amendment By-law 555-28 at its April  17 meeting and moved a new  public hearing be slated- for  Monday, April 30, with possible  adoption of the by-law at the  regular meeting of May I.  It was generally felt the new  information presented by  developer Hayden Killam at the  April 10 planning meeting was  sufficient reason to recall the  by-law.  "It was such a change in  momentum on the part of the  developer and owner that we  need another public hearing,"  Alderman Ken Collins said.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  disagreed and had her vote  registered as opposing the recall  of the rezoning by-law which  had been defeated at second  reading on April 3.  The considerations offered  council by the developer at the  planning meeting did reflect and  allay a lot of the public concerns  and those of council in regard to  the proposed sub-division and  development of the plateau  lands above Gower Point Road,  Town Planner Rob Buchan told  council.  In his report last week,  Buchan 'strongly recommended' recalling the by-law but  under certain restrictions. He  proposes the restrictive covenant under Section 215(1 )(c)  identified in the applicants proposal be registered against the  title of the property prior to  third reading and that the subdivision application be received  in full, together with estimated  fees, also prior to third reading.  Buchan told council he also  felt the area designated by  Killam as 'an eagle sanctuary',  instead of remaining a sanctuary contigent on eagles  nesting there, should be dedicated to a non-profit society in  perpetuity as a nature reserve  instead.  There was some debate as to  the legality of these restrictions  in a zoning issue.  "I have difficulty in  understanding what this has to  do with rezoning," Alderman  John Reynolds said. "These  issues should be dealt with at  sub-division not zoning."  Collins said council was reacting to the public.  "The public asked for  guarantees," he said.  The issue of the eagle sanctuary could not be negotiated  Reynolds said, adding that it  was appropriate for council not  to comment at the rezoning  stage.  Collins said this was "an area  where politicians fear to tread  for good reasons.  "Il might be belter if the  eagle moves on," he added. "I  trust the eagle knows where it  wants to live better that I do."  According to Collins Texada  Island still has 'lots of trees and  coast lines for eagles'.  Alderman Jerry Dixon said  he felt it was "good that all  these concerns are coming out.  Hopefully we've now had  everything concerned with this  piece of property."  There was some confusion at  the end of the meeting who .  during question period me  Coast News asked if sub-section  four under Section 240 of the  Municipal Act which reads:  'The rejected by-law, resolutions or proceeding shall not be  reintroduced to council for six  months, except with the  unanimous consent of council';  didn't apply to the Gospel Rock  rezoning by-law.  Mayor   Diane   Strom   said  council would 'check it out' and  if an error was made, correct it  at Ihe next opportunity.  On Thursday Clerk-Admini-  strator Lorraine Goddard, after  "speaking with the town's  lawyer, told the Coast News:  "We are correct."  She said sub-section four applies only to an adopted by-law  which is recalled by the mayor  and then defeated.  "Since this by-law was  defeated at second reading and  never adopted," Goddard said,  "any member of council can bring il back."  Forest Committee queries  Mount Richardson reserve  by Rose Nicholson  The Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) is not prepared to  give its full support to the proposal of the Tuwanek Ratepayers Association to have 100  hectares of Mt Richardson'  designated as a wilderness area  but will recommend that "the  Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) go on record as being in favour of preserving the  visual integrity of the face of  Mt. Richardson and maintain  the recreational reserve around  Richardson Lake."  Committee member Fred  Gazely pointed out that according to a quick study he made of  the area, the 'back side' of Mt.  Richardson supports approximately 480 hectares of medium  to good growing sites, and 324  hectares of this will produce  merchantable timber in the next  20 to 40 years.  "We can't treat Ihis lightly,"  he said. "It needs further study.  It could mean an annual loss of  income to the people of this  province of $440,000 or $39  million over an 80 year period.  And that's based on 1988  figures. It would be higher  now."  Gazely went on to say that  the mouth face of the mountain, the area that is visible from  Sechelt and the inlet, is mainly  rock bluff and, except for a few  steep draws, does not support  much more than scrubby  growth.  Strictly speaking, the 100 hectares of the mountain that the  Tuwanek residents would like to  preserve does not qualify as  'wilderness' according to  forestry definitions. They are  asking that those guidelines be  waived or modified because the  area has regenerated itself in the  last 50 to 60 years.  Barry Custance of the regional forest service pointed out that  the area around the lake is  already classified as a recreational reserve and "we're going  to be practicing integrated  resource management anyway.  All this area will be landscaped  before any cutting takes place.  It's all part of the plan in visually sensitive areas."  "We  can   live  within   the  guidelines," said Chris Ortner  of Interfor. "We are not planning any extensive clear cuts  anyway.  "People should watch what's  going on in their backyards and  come to the (five year plan)  showings," added Custance.  "There is room for some  changes."  "In essence this is a far better  approach," concluded Bill  Moore. "Years and years could  go by and the problem wouldn't  be addressed. It wouldn't make  it past the first studies."  Pipeline shipments  for natural gas  arrive in Sechelt  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation reported today thai the  first shipments of pipe for the  Vancouver Island Gas Pipeline  have arrived in Sechelt. The first  trucks loaded with pipe were  placed on a Horseshoe Bay/  Langdale ferry yesterday and  were unloaded al Sechelt today.  The pipe transportation process began from Edmonton on  ihe weekend. Steel for the pipe  was made in Lake Erie, Ontario  and formed in Camrose, Alberta.  Shipping will continue at a  rale of eight lo 10 trailers a day  for Ihe duration of construction. Initially, Ihis pipe will be  coming lo Sechelt and Port  Mellon. Pipe requiring a rock-  shield for extra protection - approximately one in every 10  trailer loads - is first being  transported to a plant in Surrey.  BC, which will coat the pipe  wilh concrete before it travels to  Sechelt.  Pipe coming directly 10  Sechelt is being shipped lo  Horseshoe Bay and then  transported along Ihe Coast to  the Langdale terminal by British  Columbia Ferry Corporation.  Majestic Pipeliners are constructing the pipeline for Pacific  Coast Energy in the Sunshine  Coast area. Majestic is hoping  to complete this portion by mid-  October 1990.  Pipeline clearing and construction is also under way al  Squamish, at Woodfibre, and  on Texada Island. Gas should  be available to all communities  along the route by the fall of  1991.  Time to close  Molly's Reach  by Ellen Frith  This season's filming of the  Beachcombers, (the story of  this West Coast little town with  loggers, salvagers, old-timers  and real cafes lhat serve man-  sized meals') will be its lasl, the  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) announced  April 13. The program's 19-year  run is a remarkable accomplishment, the CBC said, bul il was  felt the show had run its course.  Apparently the decision was  made after several months of  discussion and consultation  among network officials in  Toronto, regional station  management in Vancouver and  the show's producer.  But, alas, the audience for the  Beachcombers has slipped.  From 1980 to 1988 it declined  by approximately 50 per cent  and although once an average  1.85 million viewers tuned in to  the escapades of Nick and company, by 1988 the numbers were  just under one million.  In an attempt to stop the  slide, the Beachcombers got a  new look, tighter scripts, additional characters and, in 1989, a  new time period. Unfortunately, however, the audience continued to fall and several CBC  affiliate television stations dropped the show entirely.  "It is sad to think that after  all these years the Beachcombers is coming to an end in  our town," Gibsons Mayor  Diane Strom said at last week's  council   meeting.   "But   we  should be happy they stayed for  19 years.  "The show brought tourism  to this area and has made the  Sunshine Coast known all over  the world."  As yet Gibsons Landing merchants are not too worried  tourism will drop off once Ihe  filming of the program ends.  They point out there will be 19  years worth of reruns and people will always want to see  where the Beachcombers was  made.  It is hoped, of course,  Molly's Reach, which was built  in 1930 and sits on the original  homestead of George Gibsons  who settled on the Coast in  1886, will remain as is or be  converted into a real restaurant  but the present property owners  aren't saying.  "It's too soon to comment on  what's going to happen to Molly's Reach," Margaret Smith  told the Coasl News  Margaret and Harry Smith  also own Smitty's Marina  situated below 'the Reach', as  well as the Persephone.  CBC crews will apparently be  arriving in Gibsons in the middle of May to film five new  episodes plus a one hour special  as the closer.  Vancouver station officials  are also planning a tribute to the  show and its contribution to the  BC film industry.  Still, as Mayor Strom said,  it's sad it had to come to a  "cut" end.  ������.

Gibeone growing  The Town of Gibsons is undergoing the most rapid growth  in the province, Alderman Jerry Dixon told council at the  April 17 council meeting.  Dixon, who sits on the Transportation Committee, said  these statistics were "more ammunition to use against the  Department of Highways" in the Town's fight for a traffic  light at the intersection of Shaw Raod and Highway 101.  "Highways upgraded the traffic light in Sechelt," Dixon  said. "We are faster growing than Sechelt."

It appears Canada is on the threshold of a major constitutional crisis. Should the senate refuse to pass the  GST bill, Mulroney will have no choice but to call an  election on the issue, in spite of the Conservatives  meagre 14 per cent standing in the latest polls.  While such a move on the part of the senate would be  history making, it is not inconceivable. The senate has  been acting downright rebellious for the last few years.  It could well be this appointed senate may actually save  Canada from the dreaded GST.  On the other hand the Liberals, who hold a majority  in the senate, have stated that if the GST is in place  when they win the next election, they will have no choice  but to leave it in.  Such statements are tailor-made to provide the  Liberals with the appearance of the champion of the common man, while they proceed to take over the role of  gouger which the Mulroney government has prepared for  them.  Perhaps we will see nothing more than a show of apparent heroic struggle, with Liberal senators regretfully  crumbling in the face of threats from the House of  Commons. Or will the senate rebel against all the  manipulation and really come through for Canadians.  We can only wait and see, and perhaps correspond with  a few senators.  Enough, enough  It is always desirable to have a government responsive  to the electorate. However, the reconsiderations of  reconsiderations can go on forever.  The school board had an Early French Immersion  program in place which was very successful during the  first year. Then a suggestion was made that it be moved  from the Gibsons and Sechelt locations to Davis Bay,  which didn't want it. That debate went on for several  months.  When the dust settled over the location of the program, pressure started to expand the program. That  debate went on for another year. Now the program is  being cancelled, maybe, definitely, perhaps. And maybe  Middle French Immersion will take its place, or maybe  not.  This battle has continued and escalated for too long.  While the school board drags it out, the community is  divided into war camps. Enough is enough.  5 YEARS AQO  The frustration of trying to serve as trustees in the  face of the provincial government's determination to impose financial restraints finally prompted two trustees  of School District 46 to resign.  Trustees Tim Stephen and Don Fairweather handed  in their resignations this week, Stephen's to take effect  immediately and Fairweather's to take effect May 15.  10 YEARS AQO  Victor Walters and Leslie Brown are running for election to the Sechelt Council.  Almost 100 people overflowed the foyer of the new  Pender Harbour swimming pool in the basement of the  Pender Harbour High School on Saturday, April 26 as  the new recreation facility for the Harbour was officially  opened.  Representative of the ministry of education, W.L.B.  Hawker, Bowen Island resident Gall Taylor and school  board chairman Don Douglas do the honours at the  opening of the new school on Bowen Island on Saturday, April 26.  20 YEARS AQO  In their first appearance the local Driftwood Players  drama club took top honours In Vancouver Island's  Drama Festival held In Courtenay. The club presented  The Lover by Harold Pinter, featuring local teachers Colleen Johnson and John Burnside. High school students  Steve Sallis and Thorne Underwood were the stage  crew. George Matthews was director and Doris Fuller  stage manager.  30 YEARS AQO  As a result of an Investigation by the provincial fire  marshall of the Shell tanks in Gibsons, the removal of  combustible material from their vicinity has been  ordered, surrounding dikes are to be brought up to standard and the construction of a concrete retaining wall  for the earth bank has been recommended.  40 YEARS AQO  Francis Frage, J.P. continues his campaign against  the passage of a school by-law. Frage points out that  school taxes will go up again this year from 10.5 mils to  11.22.  Frank Lee's new boat, Mascot If, is launched at  Bargain Harbour Marina.

It has been  part of our lives in the summertime, spring and fall for 19  years and few are the residents  of at least the Lower Coast who  have not had some passing contact with the phenomenon of  living on a television set,  whether it has been one of the  hundreds who enjoyed the earnings available for work as an extra during lean times or the  equal number who cursed when  they found themselves, ferry-  bound, held up while the  cameras rolled at the busiest intersection on the Sunshine  Coast.  Back in 1971 my own  memories include the recolU_  tion off living on the top floor of  the house next lo the Gibsorf  Athletic Club, or now Rug!  Club, clubhouse by Armour's  Beach. Bruno Gerussi had'hot  yet won to his personal mountain lop on the Bluff and occupied the bottom suite below  me. We talked, or al least  Bruno did, one evening in the  yard, about how the television  show was not going to be allowed to change the town. Next  year the show was judged a success and the advance guard for  the second season was offering  rents for preferred locations for  the stars of the new television  hit Ihe like of which renters on  the Sunshine Coast had never  dreamed of. Who knows how  many artists and writers began  to be dispossessed just then?  I had my first speaking part  in a show called Cavalcade in  1972.   Someone   from   Van  couver didn't show up and 1  was called upon in July 1972 to  hurtle round the corner of the  Shell Station at the Five Corners  into the lane behind Molly's  Reach in a yellow Morris-Mini  station wagon and deliver boxes  to Molly - Rae Brown and utter  the deathless words: "You'll  never get rich buying chicken in  my restaurant, Molly, to sell it  in yours."  There were other parts over  the years, sometimes speaking,  sometimes not.  One summer day a few years  back the phone rang when I was  at the detested chore of mowing  the lawn. The voice said they  wanted me for the role of an extra who was to be jettisoned out  of a rowboat at the beginning of  ufiiS show by the wave of a jet  f boat. At the end of the show the  .rowboat was to be run over by  : the same jet boat.  ' I demurred that I had never  seen myself as the swashbuckling type but just when I was  about to refuse my eye fell on  the half-mown lawn and that's  how I came to be standing in  total disbelief watching a jet  boat roar towards the rowboat I  was standing in, knowing that I  was going to have to throw  myself fully clothed into the  chuck just before it ran over us.  And me a devout and practising  coward.  Later I learned the other  fellow in the boat with me got  paid as a stunt man whilst this  middle-aged newspaper  publisher without heroic aspirations was paid as an extra for  his unwonted heroism.  Then there was the time 1  turned down the opportunity to  play John Burnside in a segment  of the now hugely successful  show. The originator of the  series, writer Marc Strange, was  a sometime drinking companion  of mine and conceived the idea  of putting the newspaper's  editor into a script. Unfortunately when the time came  they scheduled the shoot on  production day at the paper and  1 couldn't do it. They brought  in an actor from Vancouver for  the part.  My best memory comes from  a later time when Robert  Clothier's wife Shirley  Broderick was now established  as the publisher of the Cms!  News at least on the  Beachcombers. I got to play a  reporter on the paper and in a  scene in Molly's Reach with  Bruno Gerussi to my far right,  Pat John on my immediate  right, Jackson Davies on my  immediate left and Robert  Clothier on my far left munching on an interminable hamburger I got to hear the director  say: "Give me a close-up on  Burnside."  We all have our memories,  some good, some not so good.  Let us salute the passing of an  interesting time in the life of  Gibsons. The cast and crew of  the show were almost always  courteous and friendly in their  dealings with the town and will  be missed.

Nutter  Sometimes over the almost 60  years 1 have been in Canada 1  have had the idea that the  English were nol altogether  popular in this my chosen land.  In trying to explain this puzzling fact to myself (we're such a  nice people really) I've had the  fantasy that if Nelson had not  won at Trafalgar or Wellington  at Waterloo this part of the  world might very well still be  Spanish. England might then  have gone into decline. Good  for the environment bul hell for  the economy. My father, say,  might then have emigrated with  10 pesos in his pocket to  Spanish Canada.  It would have been most like  him to have taken the sod hut  route, but whatever he does he  saves his dough and sends me to  a Canadian (Spanish) university. The point of the fancy is the  question - what then would really be my attitude, as a first  generation 'new Canadian', to  Spaniards and all things  Spanish?  Right. It would have been at  best competitive but probably it  would have been downright an-  ti. I might not have had  anything really against their institutions of government etc. as  hammered out through the centuries of their history and  established by them in the new  land they'd developed, but I'd  want them changed. Almost  anything perhaps, but different.  I might even have wanted to  drop their history from the  school's curriculum, even if it  meant stooping to one of the  most heinous of social crimes:  re-writing history by leaving out  the parts we don't like.  I'd want everything new, and  to do that my simple minded  thought would be to root out  everything Spanish. For sure as  my fellows and I became the  majority in the new land the  merde Spaniard would become  its least popular citizen.  All perfectly understandable,  quite the most natural thing;  but in 1990 its been something  like this, in varying degrees, go  ing on for two generations now.  That could be enough perhaps 1  would think to break the dreaded 'post-colonialist syndrome'.  While the end in view may be  healthy enough, the means of  doing it could be quite crippling.  In the mid-70s somewhere 1  had occasion to draw the  history curriculum for Ontario  high schools from the government bookstore. There were 17  publications and a 93 page list  of books approved for use. 1  flipped through Ihe list while the  rest were being gathered, idly  looking to see what English  historians were listed. There  were none. Not Macauley, not  Rowse, nobody. There was a  slim volumn of very bland  essays called 'The English  Heritage'. The curriculum came  out in '54, and while 1 understand it's been changed recently,  it was there for over 30 years.  How, one wonders, if we  want to teach our children the  history of the development of  all their institutions of law,  government, commerce and  labour relations, not to mention  the language, can we do so  without teaching English  history? They won't get a snick  of it from dwellings on the  French revolution. Does the  fact that we don't do so have  anything to do with the report  that over 60 per cent of voting  Canadians don't understand  'Meech Lake'? I think so.  So say we have a flourish of  trumpets on this St. George's  Day and proclaim that the time  for being a'scairt of things  English, as interfering with the  development of Canada, is long  gone. Maybe we could get some  reviews of the lively literary  scene in London in Canadian  papers (we have to get  American papers for that); or  maybe we could get some  English television on Canadian  channels. A lot of that is very  popular, but you have to switch  to American channels for it too.  Gad sir, it's stiU a funny old  world, what?  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News, April 23,1990  Letters  dltor  Killam's efforts not commended  j Editor's Note: The foflowiag  ��� letter was received for pubHca-  ;tto"-  ' Town of Gibsons  474 South Fletcher  Gibsons, BC  Re:   Proposed  Gospel  Rock  Development  Mr. Killam's efforts to secure  rezoning have been something  less than commendable. After  consultations with Mr. Killam,  the planner told him that  because of the high profile and  environmental sensitivity, that  he gather substantive supportive  data before submitting plans to  public scrutiny.  '   Mr. Buchan had merely pass  ed on the recommendations of  council and a press report of  April 9 quoted the planner as  follows, "applicant chose to circumvent the planner and go  directly to council."  I should think that council  should have supported a  member of staff in his conduct  of the town's business instead  of letting the developer go over  his head.  Another press report states,  "the controversial rezoning bylaw concerning Gospel Rock  was defeated at last week's  council meeting causing the proposed developer, Hayden  Killam to storm from the coun  cil chambers crying 'You have  just made Gospel Rock into  Killam Avenue. There's a house  there now. Thank you very  much'."  I should think that council  should react to that juvenile  display of histrionics with contempt, and certainly should not  bring the matter up for reconsideration.  On May 10,1886, at the first  City of Vancouver council  meeting, the first resolution  passed was an appeal to Ottawa  to grant the military reserve on  the west to the next city as a  park. Approval came in due  course and Stanley Park was  born.  Gospel Rock fears not at rest  Editor:  On the surface1, Valentine  Lands Corporation's submissions to the Town of Gibsons  for rezoning of Block 6 and 7,  dated April 10, 1990, seems to  have taken a 180 degree turn.  All of a sudden, Mr. Killam is  concerned with the eagles and  the environment, bicycle paths  and parks.  The parkland dedicalion  from Gospel Rock at ihe northeast corner of Block 7 along  the. waterfront to Gospel Rock  itself is a very narrow strip of  land. Running along this land,  and parallel to the water, is the  sewer outfall line. I walked  along this piece of land recently  and 1 cannot see where houses  could be squeezed in between  the sewer line the sewer line  right-of-way and Ihe highway.  Not only is this strip of land  extremely narrow but Mr.  Killam, in his proposal to council on page six, says that he  would like a sidewalk to be  developed along Gower Point  Road. Unless this sidewalk can  be elevated like the Sky Train in  Vancouver, we are out of luck  for sidewalks let alone bicycle  paths.  Mr. Killam continues on page  six of his proposal to say, "We  also propose a park use by-law  be developed to restrict park use  from sun-up to sun-down..."  Restrict the use of the park to  whom? I thought sun-up to sundown was the best time to be on  Gospel Rock.  The eagle sanctuary sounds  wonderful and Mr. Killam tells  us he will lose $500,000 by conceding this sanctuary. Mr.  Killam's offer of $800 to form a  society to protect the eagles  from his own development is a  very strange concept.  Well my question is: what if  something should happen to the  eagles? They could move, disappear or even be shot. What if by  some - chance the eagle tree  Government's past  record appalls  Editor:  ! On April 12, ftoT In the  Supreme Court of British Columbia, I launched a civil lawsuit  against the BC government for  granting an amendment to Can-  for's Port Mellon Pulp Mill  pollution permit. 1 slated thai  the amendment benefitted the  company at the expense of the  environment. After two years of  pushing for action involving  much frustration, I will be  withdrawing the lawsuit.  The BC government's enforcement of this mill's environmental conduct has been  neglected for years; however,  due to an upcoming election,  political embarrassment  through public pressure has  finally forced the government to  lay 19 charges against this Port  Mellon pulp mill.  It is sad that government enforcement didn't start years ago  before so much environmental  damage had occurred. It is even  sadder to think that this action  to enforce our laws and protect  our environment may have been  prompted only by a nervous  government facing a close election race.  We, the people of British  Columbia can no longer afford  to have our money spent on  propoganda forced upon us  through fancy government  folders and slick television  messages designed to put us at  ease and make us forget this  government's appalling environmental record.

After all, the tree is leaning  precariously enough right now.  I understand that this land  would revert back to the  developer should either the  eagles leave or the tree fall or be  cut down. So where is this  generous $800 offer leaving the  eagles? I would suggest that the  eagles are more vulnerable than  ever under this new proposal  with a half-a-million dollar  price tag on their heads.  Alderman Collins, on speaking about the eagles at the council meeting on Tuesday, April  17, said, "We are looking at  evicting the eagles..."  Vancouver is now known as  one of the most beautiful cities  in the world enhanced by a  beautiful park on its doorstep  that is world-renowned. If the  developers had had their way,  Stanley Park would now be a  mass of buildings a la 'New  York'.  Please do nol let the  developers rob us of our Stanley  Park, 'Gower Point Park', a  mecca of natural beauty on  your doorstep. I pray that our  council will have as much  foresight as the Vancouver  Council had in 1886.  Lome B. Blain  Nothing in this proposal has  changed and nothing new has  been offered. Some manoeuvers  and manipulations have been  carefully researched and suggested but none of us are fools.  We will end up with less park  land than ever and this will not  comply with the Official Community Plan. If the rezoning is  granted, we will likely end up  wilh park dedication along the  sewer line and lhat will be all we  will get.  1 would urge people in the  community to attend the next  public hearing at the Town Hall  on Monday, April 30 at 7 pm.

Also unworkable, according  to the work superintendent's  report on DeKleer's proposal, is  the establishment of 90 degree  angle parking in the lower town.  "According to ihe report,  this would necessitate backing  up across the centre line,"  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine  Goddard told council.  Strom said she also felt a  reduced speed limit would inconvenience working people in  Gibsons who use the road  sometimes several times a day.  "I think we have to keep in  mind the timing of this issue,"  said Town Planner Rob  Buchan, adding that since the  proposed Gibsons by-pass  would change the traffic patterns in Lower Gibsons, the  proposal for a speed limit  change was perhaps "a little  premature".  Chatelech honours  Earth Day  by Joan Termuende  A tree planting cermeony, letter writing on environmental  issues and fund-raising to save  the Amazon Rainforests are all  part of tht activities planned  during Earth Week at Chatelech  Secondary School in Sechelt  next week.  As well, on Earth Day a flag  created by students in Maple  Ridge will be flown at the  school to signify the students'  and teachers' appreciation of  what they can do for the world.  Young people have the power  to influence decisions which will  affect them for the rest of their  lives. Often they do not realize  the power they have as they do  not speak up.  This week will allow the  students and teachers to take  the time to actively change the  Earth's present path of destruction for the better.

I     "It's becoming a very, very  ' serious  problem,"   Economic  :; Development   Officer   Bill  ��� Moore told the Forest Advisory  '��� Committee (FAC).  Both   the   Debris   Control  ! Board and the Ministry of En-  ; vironmenl are placing tighter  ; restrictions on the way that the  wood waste is to be handled,  and in the mean time, the log  sort operators are faced with  mounting piles of debris and no  solutions of what to do with it.  "More of it should be left in  the woods," commented Dave  Bakewell,...but Forestry regulations now insist that much of  the smaller material that used to  be left behind must be taken  out, so the piles at the log sort  sites grow, and, said Moore,  "Soon Ihe operators will be  choked out. We have to find a  solution."  i Victim/witness program  ; receives Gibsons' grant  by Ellen Frith  In spite of a new policy  I limiting grants to groups which  I principally benefit the residents  ; of the town only, Gibsons  Council voted on April 3 to  ' donate $223 as recognition of  Ithe RCMP Auxiliary Con-  : stables and $400 to the RCMP  ; Victim/Witness Service.  i The Sunshine Coast Regional  i District (SCRD) will be asked  ; by council to contribute to the  i auxiliary group and a letter will  ' be sent out in the latter case to  ! explain Gibsons' new policy.  Alderman Jerry Dixon, Gibsons representative on the  SCRD board, reported the  regional district's Grants-in-aid  budget has been cut from  $12,449 to $8500.  Consequently, he said, "If a  group comes to us asking for  money and we send them to the  SCRD, we are, in effect, saying  no."  "People have got to realize  we cannot give grants to the entire Coast," Mayor Diane  Strom commented and it was  suggested funding be requested  from the government in  jurisdiction.

The Gibsons Landing  Heritage Society is pleased to  announce that they have commenced negotiations with the  Town of Gibsons over the terms  of a lease agreement covering  the restoration and conversion  of the Old Women's Institute  Hall (presently School District  46 Maintenance Building) to a  Community Cultural Centre.  The society's plans for the  building include the incorporation of a 150-seat theatre/  auditorium and the excavation  of a full basement. It is anticipated that the Potters' Guild  will have a permanent home in  the basement area and that a  large variety of community  groups will make use of the  restored facility.  As part of a major fund-  raising campaign for this project, the Heritage Society is also  announcing the start of a  Theatre Seat Sale. The cost of  seats will be $250 each and the  names of donors will be engraved on plaques fixed to the back  of each seat. The names will  also be included on a contributor list in the foyer.  Further community awareness and fund-raising acitivites  planned are: a coffee and  dessert afternoon on April 21,3  to 5 pm a St. Bartholomew's  Anglican Church Hall in Gibsons; a dinner theatre evening  on May 27 at the Omega  Restaurant; and the resurrection  of the fall fair in September.  The society is seeking help  from anyone interested in helping to co-ordinate the fall fair,  or help in other activities.

In order lor a bigger  plane (for example, a hospital  rescue plane) to land, a longer  runway is required.  The Ciibsons/Sechelt Airport  has recently received $150,000  in federal funds, most of which  has been put towards clearing  land around the present airport  in anticipation of more funding  to build a longer runway.

I. K-aieel one kilometre south  of Port Mellon, this exhausted  gravel pit will be the site of a  full-scale forest products industrial park and fuel storage  depot. February 1990 saw the  completion of an environmental impact assessment by  Norecol Consultants for this  405 acre location. The study  demonstrated support of the  park's conceptual plans, according to Bill Moore of the  SCRD's Economic Development Commission (EDC). The  commission assists and  facilitates business start-ups and  economic activity on the Coast.  Some waterfront sites will be  designated to new sawmills and  wood-chipping ventures. Hay-  side Sawmills already considers  it a permanent home with room  for expansion.  The business park will have  sites suitable for small lo  medium size industry, wilh one  rather larger parcel reserved lor  a major single industry  development. Hillside will also  provide an alternative location  for gasoline and propane fuel  depots now at other locations.  And though Hillside's emphasis leans toward industrial  growth, over 25 per cent of the  area will be devoted to environmental reserve. The EDC  hopes to demonstrate lhal industry and environment can  co-exist compatibly by providing opportunities for  community-sponsored forest  and fisheries related projects.

Planning work covers it  myriad of issues from bylaw  amendments and rezoning applications to community planning and provincial referrals.  Each issue involves consultation  with both provincial authorities  and local representatives and  each issue is unique.  COMMUNITY PLANS  ESSENTIAL  A commuhjty plan, for example, is the vital lool for  pointing out any conflicts over  unsuitable land use. After an  area has been researched and  mapped, development of the  plans involves the community ���local citizens ��� who  provide input through Advisory  Planning Commissions (AlK^s)  and through a public participation program. The policymaking process reflects the  community spirit. Area B  (Halfmoon Bay) has a community plan now in its final  stages of preparation. The  public is Invited to view it, com-  ��� ment, and be an asset lo the  planning process.  Area D (Roberts Creek) is  next for ihe preparation of a  community plan. This involves  a review of the current settlement plan lo urxlatc il and  make il of the same quality as  those completed for other electoral areas, E (Elphinstone) and  F (West Howe Sound). Community adoption of a plan is not  necessarily the end. A plan  musl lie implemented, requiring measures such as zoning  bylaw amendments, acquiring  park land, and preparing other  related plans, such as a waste  water management plan.  Zoning or land use bylaws  specify how properties may be  used or developed. A new zoning bvlaw was recently adopted  for Electoral Areas B,C,D,E  and F. Area A (Pender Har-  bour/Eginont) is now in  preliminary stages of drafting a  new zoning bylaw lhat will  haw an impact on this community.  SCRD BUILDING DEPARTMENT  Traditionally, building permit applications decrease in tht*  lall of each year and pick up in the spring. This was not the cast1  in 1989. Since March 1989, applications haw Urn coming in  ai a steady pace each month with no sign of a let up. December  1989 was a prime example, with 42 permits total and 17 now  dwclliftg units. Compare this to December 1 ''88 with 22 total  permits and four dwelling units.  Statistics from past vears illustrate:  * 1987 - 422 total permits issued (127 for dwelling units)  * 1988 - 476 total permits issued (148 for dwelling units)  * 1989 - 625 total permit! issued (223 for dwelling units)  This shows an  Increase ol   14*) permits overall.  And  significantly, an increase of 75 dwelling units or 50 per cen|  more new homes over 1988.

She  bases this statement not totally,  but largely on the closing of 434  rural post offices since Canada  Post announced the privatization of 5221 rural post offices in  Canada over the next 10 years.  When talking to Canada Post  in Vancouver, (en Anglais),  they stated there is a list of post  offices to receive the above fate,  but the Roberts Creek Post Office is not one of them.  "We have no thoughts of  closing, at least not in the  foreseeable future." When asked why the Halfmoon Bay Post  Office was closed so suddenly  Canada Post's response was  "no comment".  Make your own conclusion.  Most Creekers seem to have  various opinions and feelings  about our post office. From  people I've talked to, some say  it would be sad; some say it will  only happen when the current  post mistress retires; some say  that the post office hours are so  short and far between that it is  more of an inconvenience than  a convenience.  We'll just have to wait and  see what happens and see how  true to its word Canada Post  really is.  Here is a little bit of the  history of Roberts Creek Post  Office taken from the book  Remembering Roberts Creek.  The postal office was established August 1, 1914 with Mr.  Roberts as first post master.  Weekly mail was shipped up by  the S.S. Comox. There was no  wharf in those days, so on a  calm day the Comox would  stop, blow its whistle and Mr.  Roberts would row out in his  dugout to pick up the mail.  When the wharf was built  later that year, things obviously  became a little easier. The fate  of the post office and its history  will be an ongoing story...to be  continued.  SCHOOL NEWS  Roberts Creek Elementary  made an extremely intelligent  FUTURE  TODAY  Loss of employment, denigration of the work of  professional loggers and forest managers and  uncertainty and instability has been served up to  companies, their employees and the residents of  rural communities. B.C.'s forest debate has  become a serious matter indeed. Typically, the  debate has focused on a mythical battle between  'Big Companies' motivated by greed and 'grassroots environmentalists' protecting the public interest. While this argument has seemed to be unimpeachable, the growing involvement of citizens  from the forest sector communities ��� the people  behind the trees - is changing the nature of the  debate.  Patrick Armstrong, a respected resource consultant and active participant In the 'Share B.C.'  coalition, will be the feature speaker. Mr. Armstrong will dispell many of the myths and misinformation surrounding the ever-escalating debate  about our natural resources. The Share groups  communicate the perspective of resource based  communities to the public and support the twin  concepts of conservation and sustainable development.

PEACOCK SEEN  Add a large male peacock to  your list of feathered friends  seen in the Creek so far this  spring. He is around and honking. At least two sightings were  reported along the beach past  Flume Road.  According to the local SPCA  this peacock has been in the  Creek for over one year. Does  anyone own him? Does he have  a name?  Coast leads  in abuse of  alcohol  The statistics of drug abuse  on the Sunshine Coast are grim  and indicate this area to be one  of the worst in BC which is, in  its turn, one of the worst in  Canada, says Drug Awareness  Coordinator Jim Doyle.  "We have a greater problem  than the rest nf BC," Doyle told  Gibsons council last week in a  brief presentation aimed at encouraging participation and interest in the upcoming drug  awareness week slated for May  6 to 13.  According to Doyle's  numbers, the consumption of  pure alcohol in this province  averages 9.05 litres per person  per year while Canada's average  is 7.9 liters.  "Beer is five per cent alcohol  so it takes 20 beers to equal 12  ounces of pure alcohol (approximately one litre)," Doyle told  the Coast News. "That means  9.05 litres is equal to 400-plus  beer a year for every man,  woman and child in BC."  The number of criminal code  charges laid in incidences involving alcohol are also  significantly higher on the Sunshine Coast���37 per cent of  charges laid by the Gibsons  RCMP against 18 per cent in  the rest of BC.  "We have a serious problem  with drinking and driving on the  Sunshine Coast," Doyle said.  A 'Bush Dance' organized  for the entire family is one of  the activities planned for drug  awareness week in Gibsons.    -  Festival committees appreciated  by George Cooper, MM520  After a year spent preparing  the syllabus for the first Sunshine Coast Music Festival,  Aletta Gilker and Mary Brooke  found there were still some matters to organize, like meeting  places and pianos.  For the third annual festival  in 1976, the Roberts Creek  Community Association was  most helpful, offering the hall  and tuning its veteran piano.  Upon the urging bf the  festival's adjudicator of piano,  Phyllis Schuldt of the UBC  School of Musk, the festival  committee announced its intention to start a fund for the purchase of a piano. The very first  contribution to this fund was  made by Suzi Sutherland. She  donated the bursary she had  just won at the 1976 festival.  With that start, the Musk  Festival's piano fund grew over  the years to the $12,000 which  became part of the purchase  Brothers Park  plan unveiled  price this year of the community's new grand. That's the  grand we just heard in its first  concert in the Twilight Theatre  with guest artist Bruce Vogt on  April 8.  Among the projects to raise  funds was 'purchase-a-piano-  key' which carried on until the  death of Mrs. Brooke. That  project was only one of several  to raise money for a concert  piano. The New Horizons  Historical Committee donated  $2000, part of the proceeds of  the sale of its publication  Remembering Roberts Creek.  The Music Festival committee itself put in $ 1000. A concert  by Carl Montgomery who went  to school here and was a young  pianist of promise, and the two-  piano concerts by Aletta Gilker  and Bunny Shupe were  prepared and presented to aid  the fund.  Friends of Mary Brooke  donated $850, a memorial to  by Ellen Frith  From an "eyesore" to a  "beautiful and peaceful park"  is how Karen Olsen and Mary  Lou Leach of Roberts Creek envision the potential of the old  roller rink in Brothers Park.  "We have loads of ideas and  the unlimited ambition to make  the roller rink thrive," they  stated in a presentation to Gibsons Council April 17. "We  have the time, the know-how  and the contacts to turn the rink  and bowl around."  The roller rink, situated next  to the skateboard bowl in  Brothers Park was built several  years ago but never properly  utilized and, although the  skateboard bowl is used, the  area has since gained a certain  notoriety for acts of vandalism  especially in connection with the  washrooms.  But this could all change,  Olsen and Leach told council:  "After all the money the roller  rink cost, no one gave the project a.chance."  They pointed out that  although skateboarding is  basically a young boy's sport,  roller skating can be enjoyed by  adults and children alike.  The women propose a mixed  volunteer and commercial  endeavour that will tie in with  the town's efforts to create  recreation for its younger  citizens and, in fact, be 'a plus  for everyone in the community'.  The women told council they  hoped to run the concession  stand as a business venture.  Alderman John Reynols suggested the women get together  with Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard to work out the  technical details of such a plan  such as liability insurance, etc.  "I have no problem with the  intent," he said. "I think it's a  wonderful idea."  Olsen and Leach said they  would like to set up the roller  rink sometime in June and will  therefore present council with  another brief outlining the  financial details of their proposal in the near future.  her devoted efforts in the field  of musk on the Sunshine Coast.  And in the Music Festival  records there is a list of 60  names of those who made individual donations to the fund.  By 1980 the fund, augmented  by bank interest, had grown to  the total just mentioned,  awaiting the time it could assist  in the purchase of a piano for  the community.  These words are not by any  means an adequate remembrance of the dedication of the  early festival committees. The  community is grateful to them.

Sechelt Seniors  Excursion planned  by Larry Graftoa  There is a considerable  amount of planning, and always  a certain amount of uncertainty  entailed, when May Widman  plans a bus trip for our  members. Normally there his  been sufficient interest to fill the  bus but such was not the case on  the planned trip to the  Aquarium.  Unfortunately there was insufficient support which  necessitated cancellation. In  spite of this disappointment,  May has planned a trip to  Minter Gardens which will leave  the vicinity of the Royal Bank in  Trail bay Mall a 7:20 am on  May 2, catching the 8:30 am  ferry. The return is planned for  the 5:30 pm boat out of  Horseshoe Bay. Past experience  has proven this to be a very  popular outing, particularly at  this time of year, with the  gardens in all their glory. May  Widman (885-5200) would appreciate your earliest response if  you plan on taking advantage of  the outing.  PLANT SALE  Quite likely the building  boom in Sechelt and district,  along with the need of garden  adornments for the same, were  jointly responsible for what was  probably the fastest sell-out of  the large quantity of plants  available for the sale on April  14. The first 20 minutes saw  available   stocks   reduced  to  practically nil. Needless to say  the sale was a resounding success.  NEW ACTIVITY CENTRE  Perhaps people wonder what  on earth all this activity is about  with plant sales, spaghetti dinners, concerts and cabbage roll  dinners. Each dollar raised is  carefully tucked away and invested for the not-too-distant  future when the new activity  centre will start to become a  reality.  Approximately 20 years ago  our most tenacious members  said "Yes, we will raise enough  to buy" our present hall. They  persevered and the result was  positive in spite of the "doubting Thomases" of the day. Today we still have "doubting  Thomases" but we also have a  core of members who will  persevere and who have  persevered for the last seven or  eight years. Members should  bear in mind that this persevering core must have not only the  moral support, but the financial  support of the membership as a  whole. Twenty years ago  members were asked to contribute $100 each. Inflation has  boosted that five times or more,  when you are talking 1990  dollars.  Do we have a professional  fund raiser in our midst? Such a  donation from each of our five  hundred odd members would be  sufficient capital funding to get  the project underway right now.  Summer Hours  The Sechelt Campus will be going  to summer hours beginning April  30 until August 10, 1990.  Summer hours are 12:30 - 4:30  Monday to Friday.

Jack Pope, principal of  Chatelech, paid tribute to Joe  Brooks, head of the math  department of the school.  "Consistently over the years the  students at Chatelech writing  the provincial and scholarship  exams have done very, very  well. This year every student  passed. The class average was  70.2 per cent, eight to 10 points  above the provincial average.  Three students scored above 90  per cent, and one student got 99  per cent. We're proud of our  students, and proud of Joe  Brooks."  "He's one of the most  dedicated teachers I've seen,"  added Grade 12 student Bill  Dall.

The year of 1989 was a very  busy year for the society. After  many years of striving to have  the area dedicated as a provincial park, this was finally  achieved, with the dedication of  the park on March 20.  A meeting was held on March  7 to discuss the Wetland  Rehabilitation and Enchancement Proposal and was attended by BC Parks officials, the  SCRD Manager of Community  Planning, representatives of  Fisheries and Oceans, the  Ministry of Environment,  Ducks Unlimited, and the president and secretary of the  Sargeant Bay Society.  The consensus of the meeting  was that this year should be used for the collection of base line  data for the wetland project in  order to com,e,t!R.,with.rarnore  detailed plan of action next  year. There was general support  for the rehabilitation part of the  project, restoration of the creek  bed.  The matter of further  enhancement   to   encourage  GARDEN BAY  HOTEL  waterfowl to resettle in the  marsh is subject to the outcome  of further surveys and studies.  The Habitat Conservation  Fund advised the society that a  grant of $9000 had been approved for this year, which  would support necessary  wetland surveys.  Sargeant Bay Society also  met with BC Parks Manager  Planning and Conservation Services to find out how they planned to organize the park and  were informed that their first  action would be to draw up a  master plan for the park and  subject it to public review. This  process is likely to take several  years.

Coast News, April 23,1990  Friends of Gospel Rock  Trust fund rejected  ,<  by Him Frith  Armour's Heath, Soames Point and Gambier Island, a view for all to enjoy and care for.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  Gibsons dumps  sludge recycling  A petition to Gibsons Council from a group calling itself the  Friends of Gospel Rock (FGR)  to open a trust fund for a park  encompassing the whole Gospel  Rock promontory was turned  down at the April 17 meeting  because council felt such a request had come at the wrong  time.  Several cheques "to establish  the 'Gospel Rock Park Trust  Fund' " which had accompanied the FGR's April 10 letter  to the town have been returned,  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine  Goddard explained, because  council has not yet fully dealt  with the Gospel Rock rezoning  issue.  The rezoning by-law concerning the area in question is still  on the table and council feels it  would, therefore, be inappropriate for it to hold any  monies for the proposed trust  fund.  According to its letter, the  principle aim of the FGR is to  open a trust fund for Gospel  Rock Park "so that interested  parties can contribute toward  purchase of parklands at Gospel  Rock, since the area under consideration is greater than the required five per cent dedication  due upon subdivision, and  would require outright purchase."  Such a park is desirable, the  group says, because the whole  promontory "comprises one  complete and complex ecosystem, and any housing devel-  opement endangers the whole."  The FGR wishes "neither  council, a developer, nor the  present owner any hardship",  and is prepared to pay the present market value for the land.  "I don't disagree with what  they (the FGR) are doing,"  Alderman John Reynolds said,  "but now is the wrong time in  my opinion."  "We can't deal with it at this  time, that's apparent," Alderman Jerry Dixon said and added, "The SCRD has received  several letters, etc., so it's, a  wide-spread interest."  Council voted to deny the request and to answer the FGR in  a letter with full explanation  and to suggest that perhaps the  SCRD or an independent lawyer would be better suited to  hold any trust monies.  Beachcomber Daye?  A suggestion has been put forth to change the name of the  Sea Cavalcade, and call It Beachcombers Days instead, Alderman Lilian Kunsller told council last week.  Mayor Diane Strom pointed out the Sea Cavalcade is a  society and Is registered as such so the decision was not up to  council.  by Ellen Frith  Gibsons Council is no longer  interested in the proposal to use  the town's treated sewage  sludge on agricultural land as  fertilizer or lo establish a tree  farm on the old Gibsons garbage dump on Stewart Road,  both projects that were enthusiastically supported last  year by then superintendent of  public works Skip Reeves.  In response to an April 4 letter from the Waste Management Branch enquiring if the  town still wanted an approval to  discharge treated sludge, council moved to withdraw the application at its April 17 meeting.  Apparently the town's present Superintendent of Public-  Works, Wilbert Fair, does not  share Reeves' enthusiasm for  the projects. In his view, it will  require a large captial investment for the equipment  necessary to spread the sludge,  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine  Goddard said.  Last year Reeves applied for  the discharge approval as well  as for a grant from the Environment Youth Corps for the  labour to plant the trees at the  old   dump   site   and   to   the  Ministry of Forests for the  necessary seedlings.  According to Goddard, by  the time the Environment  Youth Corps advised they could  provide the town with the  labour, Reeves had been fired  and the Ministry of Forests had  no seedlings available.  Council's decision then was to  wait until spring to discuss the  proposal again.  In the meanwhile, the Gran-  thams Landing Improvement  District wrote to the Waste  Management Branch in regard  to its concerns about possible  contamination of the district's  water supply if the sludge was  spread on the old dump, Waste  Management informed council.  "Leachate is entering surface  water courses in the area and  Waste Management has concerns with the possibility of  compounding the contamination problem," the letter states.  Alderman John Reynolds  said although the spreading of  sludge would not necessarily affect the water supply, it would  probably "kick up a problem  with our neighbors," and he  moved to withdraw the application.  Chaster Park may  go to SCRD  by Rose Nicholson  For the past 20 years a small  park on Chaster Road has been  administered and maintained by  a group of local residents who  have operated as an independent park board under the  sponsorship of the provincial  parks department.  These people would now like  to transfer their park to the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD), but before doing so ihey arc seeking  assurance from the district that  it will not be developed in any  way that would disturb the ideal  conditions they have enjoyed  for so long.  They are asking that no boat  ramps, adventure playgrounds,  picnic tables, signs or garbage  cans be installed, but would like  to see improved parking spaces  and regular maintenance.  "1 can understand your concerns," SCRD Director Jim  Gurney told the group. "I'd  feel the say way if I lived across  the road. We will be very happy  to have Ihis park. If you outline  your ideas in a letter to the  dislricl, I'm sure this will work  well."

You  don't let go," Sechelt Mayor  Tom Meredith told Ruth Biggers at last week's council  meeting. Biggers was questioning council about the possibility  of a bicycle/foot path between  Selma Park and Sechelt along  the highway.  Mrs. Biggers had previously  presented council with a petition  signed by 620 people who would  like to see a path constructed.  However, Alderman Bob Graham explained the path would  need the approval of the  Department of Highways.  There would be many complications, he said, if Sechelt did it  themselves.  "There's no money in the  budget for it this year," he added, pointing out it would be  more easily constructed when  sewer lines were installed out to  Davis Bay.  "It's a shame," replied Biggers, "A real shame. Everyone  wants it. The room is there and  I can't see why it can't be  done."  She asked council about the  possibility of doing the project  with volunteer labour and  - several aldermen recounted projects which had been successfully completed that way including  the construction of the pavilion  at Rockwood Centre and the  sidewalk from the four-way  stop in Sechelt to the Petro  Canada gas station.  "1 can see this going through  very inexpensively. I'm sure I  can get it done," Biggers stated.  "How can you get it going?"  As aldermen warmed to the  idea, an increasing number of  options were put forward.  Alderman Mike Shanks suggested it be considered in conjunction with the sea walk  feasibility study which is already  underway.  CANADIAN FOREST  PRODUCTS LTD.

There has been no real review  of the water and sewer systems  since 1981, Town Planner Rob  Buchan said, and the escalating  development activity in the  summer of 1989 and a resultant  letter from Dayton and Knight  Ltd. suggests one is desirable.  "A submission was made to  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs regarding a study grant,"  Clerk Administrator Lorraine  Goddard said. "That's all that  we're waiting for."

The statement was addressed  to Sheryl Furness who presented  council with a petition of 129  names of area residents who feel  a traffic light and the enforcement of the 'no parking' regulations near Cedars Pub would  greatly improve the safety of  that increasingly busy intersection.  Strom said although the  highways department has stated  the intersection doesn't warrant  a light, she has requested a  meeting with the minister of  transport to discuss the matter.  The mayor added the town is  also "trying to sort out parking  in the area."  Alderman Jerry Dixon said  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District was also concerned with  the Shaw Road light and also  with acquiring one for the intersection of School Road and  the highway.  "A strong letter has been sent  to the ministry," said Dixon.  "The town and district are both  concerned."  "Can't you do something  now about the parking," Furness asked, stating it was impossible to see oncoming  highway traffic from the junction with cars parked at the  front and east sides of Cedars  Pub. "There's going to be an  accident or a pedestrian killed  there."  ' k -The by-law officer has been  inojified of the 'no parking'  regulations around the pub,  council said, but the officer was  very busy, was involved with  dog-catching as well as parking  by-laws and worked only until  4:30 pm in any case.  It was suggested that if they  were ready to appear in court,  citizens could file complaints  against those whose cars were illegally parked around the intersection.  Mayor Strom said she felt  that with the costs involved with  the   proposed   by-pass,   the  ministry   of   highways   was  "holding off funding the traffic  light."  Council agreed to use Fur  ness' petition "to pressure the  ministry of highways into doing  something in regard to that corner."

COMPLETION    -    MAY 15 ^30  Phone - 885-3318 - Days  885-1979 ��� Evenings/Weekends  King of Safecrackers  The Dubious Fame  by Peter Trower  That night Wilson mulls over  Amelia's proposition. It has  been a long time since he has  had steady female companionship. It would certainly make  the trip a lot more pleasant. He  decides in the affirmative.  Wilson tells Amelia of his  decision when they next meet  and they shake hands to clinch  the agreement. Over the ensuing  days they make plans for the  journey and get to know each  other much better. Since Amelia  is bound to find out anyway,  Wilson confesses who he really  is. He shows her the Colliers article and adds a few details that  Dean Jennings has failed to include.  Amelia is more fascinated  than shocked. She is no stranger  to off-beat characters and situations, having worked for several  years in a carnival as a magician's assistant in her younger  days. She is delighted to find  that her gentlemanly new friend  is actually the King of the  Safecrackers - a genuine living  legend of crime.  As preparations for the  journey progress, Herb Wilson  and Amelia find themselves  growing more and more compatible. It is a conservative time  and the question of propriety  arises. What is to be their ostensible relationship? Should they  masquerade as older brother  and sister? Father and daughter? After some discussion they  arrive at a simple solution. On  April 13, 1951, Herb Wilson  and Amelia are married in a  civil ceremony. Their random  journey of exploration becomes  a lengthy honeymoon.  The newlyweds spend the  next six months tooling leisurely  around the BC hinterlands,  camping where they choose.  Wilson indulges his old hobby  of fly-casting in the lakes and  rivers while Amelia busies  herself with her landscape painting. It is a halcyon interlude for  both of them.  In the fall of 1951 with the  first snows imminent, Herb  Wilson and his new bride return  to Vancouver. They spend the  winter in the caravan, then  trade it for a small house in Surrey. They refurbish the place,  sell it for double the price and  move again, this time to North  Vancouver.  Here, Wilson's paranoia  about enemies from the past  begins to mount again. Amelia,  sympathetic to his fears,  manages to buy back the  caravan. They sell the North  Vancouver home and hit the  road once more ��� this time to  Vancouver Island.  After several months of gyp-  sying about they sell the caravan  again and in November 1952  buy a small riverside cottage in  Courtenay. Here they win remain for almost seven years.  Apart from a disastrous  flood in the mid-50s that ruins  many of Herb and Amelia  Wilson's possessions, the sojourn in Courtenay is a relatively tranquil period. It does,  however, mark several important developments in Wilson's  late blooming career as a professional ex-gangster.  To be continued...  Rhythms  of Life  ���  Tenacity is tiring  Roberts  Creek  LEGION  After April 27 smorgasbords will be discontinued at  Roberts Creek Legion.  We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to  Joan and June for a job well done.  Starting May 4, dinners will be served on Friday and  Saturday by Chef Dennis at $7 a plate.   by Penny Fuller  Stubborness can be a really  positive trait. Where would we  be if Christopher Columbus had  been weak-willed? Scientists  need stubborness to persist in  important work through failure  after failure. Parents need stubborness to survive.  So people born when the Sun  is in Taurus (April 21 to May  21) need not feel defensive  about their tendency to hang  onto things like dreams. There  is a big difference though, between tenaciously following a  chosen course and holding onto  hurts and angers from the past  as if they're the family treasure.  It's not such a problem when  you're young and strong. You  can easily pack around grudges  against ex-friends, boy/girl  friends, parents, teachers, etc.,  etc. But as you grow older and  the collection continues to  grow, you may find it's weartfig'  you down.  And of course the more you  fill your emotional gunny sack,  the more effort it takes to stuff  another hurt in there and keep it  all under control. No wonder  you get exhausted!  In many cases, eventually the  whole sack will blow up scattering emotional debris from  decades past all over those who  are close to you. On the other  hand, Taureans can be so determined and strong-willed that  they'll go to their death beds  fantasizing about getting even  with some turkey from ages past  who long ago forgot about their  existence. So who wins that  power struggle?  It's normal and healthy to  feel pain and go through a  grieving process many times in  your life. It's also pretty normal  to carry around anger for a  while, if you are unable to express it appropriately. But how  long? A year? Two? Ten?  I can't tell you how long is  necessary for you. 1 would suggest though, if you still find  yourself fantasizing about  revenge after a couple of years,  this person still has control over  you, and they're draining your  life energy.  For your own sake, and the  sake of those in your life who  Parenting  workshop  Living with children who are  constantly quarrelling and  bickering can drive you to  distraction.

It's  easier to do that if you believe in  either karma, or God's justice.  You can assure yourself they'll  get what they deserve without  your efforts.  But it's still hard for a Taurus  to let go of the emotion. There  are lots of books and workshops which will give you  techniques on letting go with  love. This would, of course, be  the spiritual ideal. Forgiveness is  an essential attribute of the  "highly evolved" human being.  If your aspirations aren't  quite so high and you just want  to get your energy level back up,  you can try something less  spiritually ambitious.  Try using a really basic affirmation:  time you  stop your  over and i  ���dpn't care.  he/she thinks. 1 don't care what  he/she feels. I don't care if  he/she regrets. I just don't  care."  Eventually you may be able  to add something about forgiving and releasing in love, but in  the meantime you need to build  up your emotional energy to a  level of strength.  Letting all those negative feelings go will give you so much  more energy to pursue positive  goals, an activity where your  stubborness can pay dividends.

It is  a special time to recognize and  pay tribute to our many  volunteers. It is a time to reflect  on all the services and causes  and boards that would not exist  if it were not for volunteers.  One of the reasons life is  pleasant on the Sunshine Coast  is because of the giving of  volunteers. Children's sports,  theatre groups, fire departments, events committees are a  few of the groups in our community.  Volunteering is not only a  way of expressing one's values;  it is also an ideal opportunity  for promoting a particular  cause, such as the protection of  the environment, the campaign  against drugs, or supporting art  and cultural events.  Last year the Arts Council  alone logged 2665 hours from  ISO volunteers.  Our community is so fortunate to have committed people giving their time. National  Volunteer Week is a small space  to remember to "thank you" to  all volunteers.  The Volunteer Action Centre  is hosting its Sixth Annual  Volunteer Tea on April 25,2:30  to 4:30 pm at the Jechelt Indian  Band Hall. We have tried to  contact as many organizations  as possible but if your organization has been missed please contact 885-5881.  "In the early hours of  September 17,1924 the Beryl G,  a non-descript wooden work-  boat, crewless, Mood-smeared  and bullet-riddled, was found  adrift in Haro Strait just south  of the international boundary  dividing Canada and the US on  the west coast."  Who, after reading that enticing passage on the back cover of  Eric Newsome's latest book,  The Case of the Beryl G (Orca  Book Publishers, 1989), could  resist devouring the book in one  sitting?  The discovery of the bloody  boat in the San Juan Islands by  an American lighthouse keeper  led to a continent-wide  manhunt and one of the most  sensational murder trials ever  held in BC during the Prohibition of the 1920s.  In 1979 Newsome took early  retirement as a school teacher  and moved to the West Coast to  write full time. The Beryl G is  his second book. Earlier in 1989  he came out with Coal Coast, a  history of coal mining on  Canada's west coast.  Newsome has researched the  Roaring 20s well, pouring over  old newspapers which reported  the sensational trial to a public  lusting for the details.  The Volstead Act of 1919  ushered in a failed experiment  in US history���Prohibition.  Keeping alcohol out of the  United States was, of course,  impossible. The law of supply  and demand dictated that a few  gutsy seamen would risk smuggling booze from Canada,  where Prohibition was not in effect, to a ready market south of  the border.  "With Prohibition, the  United States became a gigantic  thirst waiting to be quenched,"  writes Newsome, "an island of  drought with an ocean of  alcohol lapping at its shores."  Rumrunners passed warily  through the Gulf Islands in  Canada and the American San  Juan Islands, down to Seattle  and Tacoma, "cities where rival  liquor barons wrestled for control of the lucrative trade and  bred violence in others through  their greed."  Rumrunning also took place  on the Sunshine Coast, if you  believe stories that Smugglers  Cove, near Halfmoon Bay, was  a transfer point for rumrunners  shipping Texada Island moonshine to points south.  The American Coast Guard,  with their slow cumbersome  vessels, were outclassed by  rumrunning boats, some of  which were fitted with twin  engines and propellers, capable  of planing at 40 knots. When  cornered some rumrunners  would jettison their cargoes to  avoid arrest.  Newsome notes the rumrunning fraternity were sometimes  aided and abetted by crooked  police and officials.  A few rumrunners took to hijacking booze shipments from  fellow smugglers. There were  plenty of profits to be made, at  tracting such unsavoury characters as Si Sowash and Cannon-  ball Baker, who masterminded  the murder of theBerylG'scaptain and his 17 year old son for  its cargo of 350 cases of spirits.  Newsome's courtroom scenes  display a rare understanding of  how the judicial process works.  Unable to locate the bodies and  with scant clues the case was a  difficult one to prosecute. The  victims were apparently shot,  handcuffed, tied to an anchor  and sunk in unknown waters.  But the Canadian authorities  were determined to bring the  truculent American pirates to  justice. If not for the dogged  determination of Vancouver  police inspector Forbes Cruick-  shank, the culprits might never  have seen justice.  Against enormous odds and  working with marginal evidence���a bloody seamen's cap,  a photograph of the Beryl G  with another vessel���  Cruickshank and Robert Owen  of the BC Provincial Police  scraped together enough of a  case to bring the case to trial.  Braving the mean streets of  Seattle and Tacoma the inspectors confronted the suspects  who, fearing for their own  skins, accused fellow cohorts of  master-minding the crime.  Hie Case of the Beryl G is a  well-crafted and compelling  read. Even after 65 years this  trial, which 'exposed the darkest  underbelly of the world of  rumrunning', stands up well  against the test of time.  GIBSONS  ILEGION  Branch 109  Players seen  successful  In farce  by George Cooper  "The applaudits of the audience was songs in our ears."  Words that might have been  Mrs. Piper's, the chief character  in Mrs. Busybody, the Driftwood Players' most recent play.  Mrs. Piper mangled the  language and the investigating  detective superintendent, to the  delight of the audience on each  night of the play.  "We needed a play that was  funny and even a trifle  ridiculous," said the director,  Nest Lewis, "just for a change.  And to judge by the attendance  (average - 112 each performance) we selected the right  one."  They did indeed. And the  right cast, too. June Wilson  (Mrs. Piper) fired off her lies  with great verve, making the  most of the sarcastic retorts, the  malaprops, the wry antitheses.  Her foil and near victim,  detective superintendent Baxter,  was ably played and sneezed by  Reg Rowe.  The others in the cast gave  lively support to these two.  There was the artful steno  played by Laura Russell, the  bobby by David Fraser, the  contriving secretary by Marian  Selby, the not utterly faithful  wife by Deborah Allain and the  imperturbable husband by John  John Morris. Good work all  round.  "All the people who did all  the preparations for stage and  house and the publicity and all  the other supporters were simply marvellous," said Nest  Lewis.  "We sent to Samuel French  for a dozen plays to read," said  Nest, "and auditioned four of  them. Great turnout. We could  easily have cast three of the  plays."  Pam Feichtner, the producer,  told us the play kept expenses  under the $3000 budget and it  has turned a sizeable profit as  well.  "Expenses covered such  items as rental of lighting equipment, hall rental and cleaning,  rehearsal space rentals, advertising and publicity." said Pam,  "This year," she said, "We  tried attracting playgoers to  opening night by means of a  lower admission and we had 91  attend. Not bad at all, when you  consider our average attendance  was 112.  "School gyms," Pam said  when we asked about their  suitability, "are needed by the  students for school days that  fall between performances and  that means striking the set and  re-assembling it. An excruciating task. And the  acoustic quality is not acceptable."  "We have many in the community to thank for their support of our productions," said  Nest Lewis. She added that a  membership drive will soon be  underway. That's one way to  support and encourage this hard  working group.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  ^mino ouide  restaurants  and pubs  Tuut  oh  flteCwdt  A glorious day was coming to an end and the lights were  springing to life in Gibsons Harbour as we sat down for dinner at the Omega. Our window seat gave us a magnificent  view to sink into the perfect mood for a long, leisurely evening of dining pleasure.  Our friendly waitress promptly brought us menus and we  began the difficult task of choosing from the variety of tempting dishes. Pasta or pizza? Steak or fresh seafood?  We finally agreed to appetizers: calamari and a shrimp  cocktail and the two house specials. After a brief interlude  of quiet conversation sipping strawberry Margueritas, our  dinner began to arrive.  I dipped the light, crisp calamari into the accompanying  bowl of tangy tzanziki - delicious. By the time 1 looked up,  my partner had devoured his shrimp cocktail and was sitting  back with a satisfied grin on his face. What? No sharing? I  planned to improve my timing with the main course.  Strategy faded from my mind once our plates arrived, mine  loaded with sauteed prawns on a fluffy bed of rice, his with a  thick slab of prime rib in rich brown gravy.  The delicate flavour of the prawns captivated my entire attention for several minutes, before I looked up to comment  on the delicious repast. My partner's rapt expression of  delight reminded me. "Trade bites?"  He eyed the pink beauties remaining on my plate, "Sure."  I silently thanked the proprieters for the casual atmosphere which permitted the silencing of Emily Post,  reached over and speared a succulent looking bite of beef.  It was wonderfully tender and tasty.

Lately, representation for  IPEC has become more visible  throughout Canada as well as in  other petroleum exporting  countries.  This can be attributed to a  number of factors: the perceived effect of services and community improvements on the  cost of their wn standards of living; the instigation of various  other support groups such as  'UPEC (association for the utmost Prejudice in Educating  our Children, and 'EPEC  (Education Politicians Encouraged by Cash); and, of  course, the factor of an  epidemic of that still-mysterious  'old-timers disease'.  "I'm warning you..." said  Bob Nordoff, spokesman for  IPEC, "You'd better listen to  us or we'll throw a tantrum!  This warning was issued following 'much consideration' and  'time-consuming deliberation'.  "It was not an easy decision  to make. Who knows, I may  lose my job over it," Nordoff  expounds assuming a well practiced martyr stance prominent  in black and white movies.  When probed for explanations, Nordoff exclaimed,  "Look kid, I'm older than you.  I've, seen it all before. I know it  all! Hail IPEC!"  "Sheesh!...Yikes!...and No  Way!!" would be a reasonable  response sequence. Average  citizen response time around  here is...SLOW! A similar-sized  citizenry of self-respecting, non-  apathetic people would be well  into the 'No Way!!' stage of  their response. Our neighbours  have barely finished  'Sheeshing!'  Come on Sunshine Coast!  Get off your collective butts and  do something for yourselves!!!  Steve Dieter  Of heritage and tourism  Editor:  The retention of the tracks on  the old KVR between Spence's  Bridge and Penticton would  enable tour trains capable of  hauling both motor vehicles and  passengers to and from a world  class operational steam locomotive theme park, etc., plus  the creation of a linear park  complete with a world class surface for cyclists and hikers etc.  between Penticton and Midway,  could provide a destination  point which should bring to the  entire province of BC billions of  dollars in added tourist revenue  during the next several decades.  An editorial in the Penticton  Herald has stated, in effect, that  Parks Minister Ivan Messmer is  insisting there has to be an  overall plan.  In order to accomplish this it  must be obvious that it is the  responsibility of the provincial  government to conduct an extensive survey in order to ascertain whether or not a plan could  be implemented which would be  both feasible and viable.  I would estimate that a proper study might cost around SI  million. However, this amount  is peanuts compared to the  possible billions of dollars in  benefits. One must remember  that the size of an investment is  always relevant to the returns.  For example: My estimate of  the cost to put a viable plan into  action could be but 10 per cent  of the amount spent by government and participants etc.  before Expo '86 opened and  while the revenue producing  time of Expo was only about IQ  months, mine would be for each  and every year over a 50 to 100  year period.  An estimate of a $1 million  survey is also relevant in terms  of the size of the project and the  money spent annually by the  BC government.  For example: SI million is but  .008 per cent of last year's bud-  jet. In other words, it would be  like a person with $1000 in his  pocket agonizing over whether  or not to leave the waitress an  eight cent tip.  By combining 'tourism,  heritage and history' into one  package we might very well  generate billions upon billions  of additional tourist dollars for  the benefit of the entire province and it would therefore  seem obvious that the media,  municipal governments and  electorate must push senior  governments to act in a positive  manner. Failure to do so may  leave us with little more than a  bunch of eye sores.  Dave Tod  Penticton, BC  Ferries seen polluting  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Mr. Bill Long, Chair  BC Ferries  Victoria, BC  1 am writing to request that  BC Ferries discontinue using  disposable dishes and cutlery in  its cafeterias and return to using  I glass dishes and stainless steel  i cutlery.

Local 801 (support  staff for School District No. 46)  wishes to express its solidarity  with the Home Support  Workers who are currently on  strike on the Sunshine Coast  and is prepared to offer  whatever assistance it can.  We share with them the  frustration and seeming  hopelessness of dealing with an  unsympathetic, ignorant and  tightfisted government in Victoria that neither knows nor  cares about the problems facing  either the workers or those being served.  Lynda Olsen, president,  C.U.P.E. Local 801  Futures  volume of garbage we produce  and to reuse and recycle as  much as possible - producing as  little as half a brown paper  grocery bag of garbage per  week.  It is most discouraging to see  BC Ferries sending as much gar  bage to the dump in a day as we  might send in a year.  1 would prefer to see my tax  dollars go toward another job  on the ferry rather than toward  more land to increase the size of  the landfill site.  Carol Ann Glover  ���*333��  MK*g*T��0  hiring  The Sunshine Coast Community Futures Association is  working to reduce unemployment on the Sunshine Coast and  has hired a Training Researcher.  Murray Browne is mid-way  through a six-month study. He  has a mandate to research the  training needs of local  employers and to recommend  programs and strategies for improving and increasing private  sector job training on the Sunshine Coast.  A series of one-to-one interviews with employers from Port  Mellon to Egmont is the  method Browne has chosen to  gather information.  "I had the option of using  mail-out surveys or questionnaires," he explains, " but I  prefer meeting with people in  person. This way I get to actually meet employers at their place  of business and discuss their  particular training successes,  shortages and needs."  Browne will be gathering information and data up until the  middle of May. Anyone wishing  to discuss the training needs of  his or her business or to discuss  Murray's research can contact  him at the Community Futures  office, 205-5710 Teredo Square  (Telephone 885-2639).

The winning team  consisted of Walt McMillan (the  skier) and his mates Larry Farr,  Ozzie Hincks, and Lome Blain  (the singer). Second prize was  taken by Bob Kerr with Harry  Johnson and Dick Reeves. Jack  Knaus took the honours for the  closes! to the hole on the eighth  while trying for his second hole-  in-one Ihis year. Bruce Mathews  and his stalwart team took  home some nice shiny new tees.

CORE  by Mary Marcroft  The CORE Program is now  in progress. CORE stands for  Conservation and Outdoor  Recreation Education. If you  are 14 years of age or older and  wish to obtain your first hunting licence you must complete  and pass the CORE Program.  The program ensures that  new hunters meet acceptable  standards of knowledge to insure safely in the woods. These  include outdoor survival and  safety, animal and bird identification, hunting laws and  regulations, hunter ethics and  firearm safety.  The CORE Program has  been required of hunters since  1974 and has made a noticeable  difference in the safely,  knowledge and attitude of  hunters.  The course is sponsored by  the Gibsons Wildlife Club and  the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club.  Qualified instructors donate  their time and effort to educate  applicants in survival, safety  and protection of our environment while using the woods.  The next general meeting of  the Wildlife Club will be on  April 28 at 7:30 pm. Bring  yourself and your ideas for activities for the club.

The show brings together 49  local businesses at the curling  rink in Gibsons on April 27-28.  Chamber of commerce President Dick Thomas said the  event was designed to increase  camaraderie among local  businesses by giving them a  chance to co-ordinate an event  under one roof.  "And if we do it right we  could make the chamber a few  bucks," he added.  Thomas said the chamber has  been talking about holding r  trade fair for a few years now  and there was a good response  when the chamber started phoning local businesses and the  show quickly filled up.  "The first day we phoned 20  businesses and everyone said  you can mark us down."  Taking part will be 20  businesses from the Gibsons  area and another 20 up the  Coast as far as Sechelt. There  will also be a few off-coast  businesses taking part.  The show will have a home  show atmosphere featuring hot  tubs, plumbing, kitchen and  building supplies, as well as 'a  good mix of financial institutions', including banks and insurance companies.

This  strike has gone on long enough.  The disabled are suffering and  the workers are suffering  without work for so long.  Home Support Workers are  not being unreasonable in their  demands. They are only asking  for a fair decent wage for the  dedicated hard work they do.  At present most of the workers  only receive $5 per hour.  Others, who have spent years in  the service, only $7 or $8 per  hour.  Their jobs are worth more  than this. It is a disgrace to pay  such hard-working people,  many women with young children and bills to pay, such a low  wage.  The public does not realize  how important Ihe Home Support Workers are and how  much work they actually do. Il  is nol just a normal houseclean-  ing job or just keeping someone  who is lonely company. They  do this, yes, but much more  too.  The Home Care Worker is a  dedicated person trained to care  for the elderly, the terminally ill,  the disabled, stroke and heart  attack victims and the paraplegic.  These victims were all once  healthy, strong, hard-working  people, contributing to their  community Now they have  been taken out of circulation  and forgotten.  Many times friends forget  about those who have been ill  for a long time, or those who require constant care, il's up to  the families and the home-  makers to provide the care  needed for these people so they  can live as close to a normal life  as possible  i speak from experience  about this subject. My own  mother was struck down by a  stroke several years ago. She  was once a strong, hardworking active woman and is  now left partially disabled with  a speech impairment. Though I  do as much as I can for her wilh  four young children and a job,  there are many things I cannot  do.  I really respect the Home  Care Workers, as 1 am sure any  who require their service do.  They deal with all the hardships and ungracious jobs that  are associated with being disabled. They have the patience to  spoon feed those who can't eat  alone, they take the elderly  shopping and walk patiently  with them as they make their  purchases.  They have endless cleaning  jeibs to deal with as in cases of  diarrhea, loose bladders, cleaning, washing bedding, chairs,  floors and clothing. They are  trained and able to give disabled  people balhs, wash their hair,  change adult diapers, empty  bowel and urine bags. Many  jobs that most people could not  cope with.  They also pick up mail, pay  bill' grocery shop, do dishes,  vacuum, and keep the home  pleasant, so the person can live  in their own home and not be  committed to a long term care  home. This in itself, keeping  those who are capable and do  indeed wish lo remain in theit  own homes, is saving the  government a lot of money.  There are endless advantages  to having our Home Support  Workers out there. No one  knows when they, themselves,  may require their service. Please  support our Home Support  Woi kers. They deserve a decent  salary for the important work  they do.  Write or phone your Minister  of Health, John Jansen. Thank  you to all of those who took the  time to read this letter.  Mrs. Linda Nichols  Madeira Park, BC  Future nightmare  is being left  Editor:.  Howe Sound Pulp and Papei  is once more facing pollution  chaiges and as Bill Hughes said.  every day the mill deposits ef  fluent inlo Howe Sound. I suppose some days more toxic than  others. The one good thing is  thai HSPP is constructing a mill  that should have a less pollution  air and water factor. The sad  thing is that they are contaminating the earth with a legal  landfill permit, al the Rainy  River dump.  I would like to publicly thank  HSPP for removing their burn  pit from the back door of the  community of Port Mellon  (even if they were forced lo do  so). The mill is a worthy sparring partner and it was nice to  win a round because there are  many we do lose and in future  ��ill lose.  Iia.au ^ HSPP is running oul  ol space for landfill I hope they  will consider au incineraloi  ��� at her than looking for olher  backyards to dump their waste.  Contaminated soil usually  comes back to haunt us as I'm  sure the regional board has  found oul at the old Bayside  Sawmill site in the Hillside Industrial Park.  Prosperity and progress by  companies meeting the needs  and demands of the consumer  are leaving an environmental  nightmare for future generations.

Coast News, April 23,1990  29.  Glorious gift of sight  The changing facts of the Sunshine Coast is reflected in the construction of aa addition to Trail Bay Mall in Sechelt.  ���Rose Nkhohoo photo  As the spring sunshine  streamed through the windows  of his office on Willow Sued,  Vancouver, Eye Bank of BC  administrator Mark Soper  glanced up. Words failed him.  He had just finished telling me  of a call he received recently  from a grandmother who had  undergone surgery a week  previously.  She called to tell him that she  couldn't stop crying. The  reason for her tears, he explained, was not a medical problem  but an emotional one: she could  see her grandchildren's faces.  The grandmother who had  been blind is one of 350 people  to receive corneal transplants in  BC last year. Most recipients  are accident or trauma victims  whose vision has been restored  as a result of organ donations.  The hour-long transplant  operation currently enjoys a 95  per cent success rate and following a three to five day stay in  hospital, patients are returned  to their homes and can expect to  enjoy gradually improving sight  as soon as a week after the  operation.  Because of the generous  donors and their families her  sight was restored.  Few of us would disagree on  the need for organ retrieval.  However, it may not be as widely understood just how important it is for adults to discuss  their decision with their family.  Despite the presence of an  organ  donor  card,   compas-  Down from tho mountain  Yogi bear meets mankind  by Sam Moats  Now I'll make a point right  here to tell the reader if you're  not knowledgeable in the ways  of the woods, whatever you do,  don't go and try to make friends  with the first baby black bear  you see.  The circumstances under  which I met Yogi were  somewhat unusual, in that he  had apparently just been weaned by his mother and didn't  know enough to be afraid of  humans.  Even as time went on 1 kept  reminding myself that he was a  wild animal and on only one occasion did I actually touch him.  When the cabin was completed  and I was moved in, there were  a few times when Yogi came  within a few feet of the door to  accept my offerings of bannock.  On one such occasion I  reached out and gently scratched him behind the ear. It took a  few moments for him to realize  it was something that he  shouldn't allow. He looked up  at me and slowly backed away  to what he considered a safe  distance and from that point  onward it was understood between us not to bridge that gap.  As time went on and Yogi  grew and if his brief encounters  with the civilized world down  below didn't teach him to be  wary of humans, I seemed to do  the job on the mountain. Most  of these lessons happened quite  by accident and there were  many times when I wished 1  could have made him understand that I wasn't out to get  him.  In his younger days he seemed to stick fairly close to my territory. Whether he felt security  in this or looked upon me as a  form of amusement I'll never  know. One thing for sure, it set  us up for a lot of accidental  meetings, hence the lessons on  'watching out for humans'.  One day poor ole Yogi, who  liked to snooze away the hot  summer days in the deep brush  to the south of the cabin, got a  rather rude awakening. I was  out getting firewood and found  myself a nice dead upright  alder. Unfortunately, unknown  to me, Yogi's bed lay right in  my fall line.  When the tree crashed to the  ground it was the first time I'd  ever seen a black bear leap  straight in the air. If I had any  worries about injuring the poor  guy they were laid to rest when  he hit the ground running, for I  think he surpassed the black  bear's 30 mhp top speed by  quite a bit. If he was hurt, it  wasn't slowing him down any.  We both use to frequent the  local berry belt which lay where  the first set of cablevision  towers used to be. I'd be on one  side of the trail and Yogi would  be on the other side, up a bit,  and we were aware of each  other's presence.  It would get hot in there so I  stuck my walking stick in the  trail, put my hat on top of it and  climbed in amongst the bushes,  Sitting on the ground in the  shade I attacked the berries  lowest down on the bush which  were generally better anyway.  I could just see the top of my  walking stick with my hat on it  out on the trail and through a  break in the bushes I spotted  Yogi coming down the trail,  looking everywhere except  where he was going.  Then I lost sight of him  behind the bushes and I saw my  walking stick fall over, apparently on Yogi, for I heard  what sounded like a horse at full  gallop going down the trail.  Coming out on the trail, I found  my hat slightly flattened and  soiled but otherwise undamaged.  Yogi wasn't hard to spot.  Like a lot of black bears, he had  a white patch on his chest but  his was fairly high up and was  an almost perfect diamond  shape. The last time I saw him  we met each other at the corner  of Payne and Reed Roads. He  stopped in the middle of the  road and we considered each  other for a moment. Then an  approaching car ended the encounter and he went on his way.  'Shortly after that day some  sheep had apparently been killed and dragged away by a 'killer  black bear'. I met a couple of  so-called hunters at the Mount  Elphinstone Cemetery where  I've often known bears to graze.  As they walked away after  warning me of this killer black  bear, I couldn't help but notice  a bottle of liquid courage in  each of their back pockets.  Riflefire went on for days  afterward and 1 didn't leave the  cabin much, the risk factor was  too high. When all was said and  done, some five to six black  bears were dead. What made  that even harder to swallow was  the fact that a cougar was found  to be the killer. No doubt this  isn't the first lime this sort of  thing has happened locally. 1  only pray that it's the last.  I think of all the creatures of  the wild I've known the black  bear is by far the most  misunderstood. People have  shot them out of fear when in  fact, the bear was actually moving away from them, not  toward. A great many people  I've taken hiking seem to be in  constant fear of being attacked  by a bear more than anything  else.  When they have their first  glimpse of a lone black bear  moving away from them rather  than attacking them, in a relieved sort of way they say, "Is that  all there is to it?"  As for Yogi, I like to think  that our last meeting was during  his journey to find a more  peaceful territory - one where he  wouldn't have to worry about  some mountain man dropping a  tree on him during a summer's  .nap.

Among the items stolen was a  1976 Datsun pickup, bright  orange in colour, which has not  been recovered.  A 12-foot aluminum boat,  Springbok, was stolen from a  yard in the 1000 block Port  Mellon Highway near Gibsons  between April 4 and April 14.  Gibsons RCMP on April 13  arrested two Vancouver males  in possession of a vehicle stolen  in Vancouver.  The two males, ages 25 and  22 have been charged and the  older male faces charges of being unlawfully at large from the  Lower Mainland Regional Correction Centre.  At 4 am, April 14, police  responded to a silent alarm at  Dockside Pharmacy on Marine  Drive and arrested a 32 year old  Gibsons male inside the  premises. Charges of break and  enter have been laid.  A report from Counter Attack lists the number of criminal  charges in .1989 in various  jurisdictions in the province and  the number of drinking/driving  offences.  In 1989 drinking driving/  driving offences made up 18 per  cent of all criminal code  charges, including traffic, in the  province.  In Sechelt this percentage was  ENGINE TUNE-UP  AS LOW AS  SKQ95  59  SKCML men IN EFFECT  UNTIL MML M/M  V*   i;aiii  CALL NOW 886-3433  SK00KUM CHRYSLER  DEALER 8084  DWAYNE HURFORD  (Service Mgr.)  the same as it was in all BC.  But in Gibsons drinking/driving charges were over  twice the percentage of Sechelt.  Where in Gibsons 101 persons  were charged in connection wilh  impaired driving, Sechelt had  only 32.

Logging  controls?  by Rose Nicholson  The Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) will bring recommendations to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  that some controls be put on  logging on private land.  At present, none of the  regulations that apply to forest  or crown lands affect the owner  of a few acres who wishes to log  his own property.  "A lol of Ihese guys buy a  few acres, log it, sell the logs  then sell the property and move  on to the next piece," explained  Fred Gazely. "Thai's how they  make their living. The attitude  is, 'what I do on my private  land is none of your business'.  It would be a major job to  change that. There needs to be  some incentive to encourage  reforestation and clean up."  After much discussion the  committee agreed that  reforestation of private land on  the Sunshine Coast was not  always practical as much of this  land is rapidly becoming  residential, but there was a need  for the SCRD to institute bylaws to enforce a clean up of  totjginf slash in areas open to  public view, and to reduce the  fire hazard of dry slash in  populated sr. -  sionate physicians involved in  (his work will not proceed  without first obtaining the immediate family's permission  and, thus, vital organs are lost.  Preventing this loss is the  primary goal of the British Columbia Coalition for Organ  Donor Awareness, whose role is  to promote public awareness of  the need for organ and tissue  donation in the province.  Less widely known is the  work being carried out by the  BC Tissue Bank since its inception nine years ago. Tissue Bank  specialist Paul Wirtz confirmed  that 700 different transplants  have been made possible  through organ and tissue donations.  Victims of life threatening  burns and tumours have benefitted from the sensitive and  professional help afforded by  these donations. It is now possible, for example, by using dura  mater (a type of membrane) to  replace a ruptured eardrum.  These procedures help inf  dividuals to regain much of a  normal life.  You can make a difference by  completing an organ donor card  and having the words 'organ  donor' placed on your drivers'  licence.  The next time it might be  your grandmother whose sight  will be restored by someone  thoughtful enough to give 'A,  Gift For Life' and make that,  difference.

Coast News, April 23,1990  SCRD calls for  nuclear-free Strait  Seven years after the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) declared this area a  'Nuclear Weapons Free Zone'  they have expanded their focus  to include Nanoose Bay and the  Strait of Georgia. At a recent  meeting of the SCRD board,  directors unanimously passed  the 'Peace Motion'.  The motion urges the federal  government "...to ensure that  the policy of no nuclear  weapons in Canada (a federal  policy) is made consistent by  declaring Nanoose Bay and the  Strait of Georgia a nuclear  weapons free zone."  The rationale for the board's  concern is contained in the text  of the motion "...an accident  involving nuclear-powered  vessels or an accidental fire  aboard a ship carrying nuclear  weapons at Nanoose Bay could  threaten the lives and health of  thousands of people on the Sunshine Coast, and could cost,  billions of dollars for which  there is no legal liability."  The board also called for a  nuclear emergency plan which  would include a radiation  monitoring   system.   Further,,.:  Ihey stated their opposition to  the manufacturing or production of any military weapons on  the Sunshine Coast.  > In putting forward the motion. Director Brett McGillivray  stated, "We are sending the  federal and provincial governments a clear message. I think  this is the right direction to go."  ���Co-operative games were used list week at Sechell Elementary, to illustrate what can be accomplished when everyone works together. This class spent the morning experimenting with a  'parachute and saw how well their collective efforts worked. ��� Ruth Forrester photo  y.  JHowe Sound reports to Public Utilities  pollution control Improvemont  More Future*  support  The Honourable Kim Campbell, Minister of Justice and  MP for Vancouver Centre last week announced that the San-  shine Coast Community Futures Association wil receive aa  additional $395,224 to continue the operation of a business  development centre.  "The Business Development Centre strives to help  stimulate the private sector to create permanent, long-term  employment. This is done though business advice and Investment funds," Ms Campbell said.  The funding is in addition to $135,710 already received in  contribution funds and $250,000 in investment hinds. Financial support from Ihe government is available for up to five  year.

(SCRD) on April 19, Ron  , Wilson of HSPP said that 10  i, per cent of the costs nf the mill  j expansion, $105 m lion, has  ; been spent on pollution control  I features.  y The new precipitator for air  ! emissions will be 99 per cent ef-  ;' iicient, "which is about as effi-  ��� cient as you can get and still  j keep an eye on economics,"  I .Wilson explained.

Wilson went on to say that in  the next couple of months, tests  by independent consultants will  be made "to find out if our  pollution control measure will  do what we say they will."  Wilson also described for the  committee precautions that  have been taken to store a small  amount of PCBs that have been  recovered in the dismantling of  older parts of the mill.  Six steel drums, containing  old fluorescent ballasts with a  total of less than five kilograms  of the PCBs, are locked in a  concrete building, and access is  available only to personnel who  have been specially trained to  handle the toxic substance.  Wilson went on to say that  more PCBs will be recovered as  the rest of the old mill is  dismantled, but the total  amount will be less than 10  kilograms.  "The technology exists to  dispose of PCBs," Wilson said,  "but it's a political problem..  There's only one place in'  Canada where it can be, done,  but we need the permission.1'.  On May 15, 1990 Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper (HSPP)  representatives will appear in  court to set a hearing date when  they will answer 19 charges of  polluting the environment, in  an interview with the Coast  News last week, Wilson discussed the charges which were laid  as a result of testing done between May 27 and 31, 1989.

'the intent of the amending bylaw Is as follows:  ji. That the certain parcel or parcels of land In the Town of  '   Gibsons more particularly known and legally described  as Blocks 6 and that part of Block 7, DL 842, Plan 6755,  as shown outlined on the map below, identified as Appendix "A" to By-Law 555-28,1990 be rezoned from the  existing Single-Family Residential Zone 4 (R4) to the  .   proposed Single-Family Residential Zone 1 (R1).  * A copy of the amending bylaw will be available for inspection at the Gibsons Municipal Office, 474 South Fletcher  ���Road, between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm Monday  Jto Friday,  ipob Buchan  ���MUNICIPAL PLANNER AND APPROVING OFFICER  ran a.a to a.i  done quarterly, with reports  sent to HSPP containing the  results. Some of the problems  which resulted in the charges  were dealt with when a new  treatment system was introduced last September.  An effluent cooling system  was installed, addressing the  concern of water temperature  warmed to a level dangerous to  fish.  The new process also reduced  dioxins and furans to levels  where they are no longer detectable.  The work currently being  done at the mill, Wilson said,  will see a secondary treatment  system on-line by the end of July this year. This will effectively  remove biological oxygen  demands in the surrounding  water, from the pulp mill  discharge and make the effluent  non-toxic by government standards. Further, he said, it will  reduce the organo-chlorines being discharged.  . The secondary treatment  system, he assured the Coast  News will be fully operational  by September, I990.
