 1  Parlt���        Ll��rary  90.8  ^/��W��.  ) - A look ahead at education  by Rose Nicholson  Everybody is talking about  the Year 2000, but just what is  it? We need to know, because in  the next 10 years it is going to  make a dramatic difference to  everyone in BC, and particularly to teachers, students and  parents.  In 1987 the provincial  government set up a Royal  Commission under the leadership of the late Barry Sullivan,  QC, to examine the educational  system in BC.  Sullivan spent the next 17  months examining every facet  of schooling in the province. He  invited input from all sectors of  society - teachers, parents and  the public.  The result was the Sullivan  Commission Report, 'A Legacy  for Learners', which contained  83 recommendations covering a  wide range of topics.  The Ministry of Education  has now formulated broad  guidelines for putting Ihe report  into effect, the 'Year 2000'  plan, and for the last few weeks  has been asking for feedback  from the public.  The general philosophy  behind the report is seen as the  need to bring the educational  system into line with the rapid  changes that have been taking  place in society in the last 40 to  50 years.  Environmental concerns, the  need to think on a global scale,  the need for more communica  tion with countries on the  Pacific Rim, the computer  revolution, the phenomenal advances in science and technology, are all issues that Sullivan  felt should be examined by  educators.  A dropout rate of 30 per cent  was seen as an indication the  system was not meeting the  needs of the students. In the  high schools, the system was  geared to the academic student  who expected to go on to  university, yet only 10 per cent  of all high school students in the  province actually go to university.  At the primary and intermediate levels, teaching  methods, to a large extent, were  still locked into a system where  content, rather than thinking  skills, was emphasized.  In a modern world where  computers and television make  access to a massive amount of  information extremely easy,  and where every Kindergarten  youngster has been effortlessly  absorbing language and reading  skills since he or she was old  enough to sit in front of a television set and watch Sesame  Street, the school experience  was sometimes an anti-climax.  For some time educators have  realized that the enormous  buildup of information in recent years makes it imperative  that students acquire the process  of learning, the ability to  research and to think rather  than accumulate a large amount  of information that may speedily become obsolete.  The Sullivan Commission  Report and the Year 2000 plan  is an attempt to bring the educational system into line with what  is really happening in the world.  On the Sunshine Coast,  School District 46 has hosted  two public forums, on  December 4 and January 15, to  discuss the plan. The large turnouts over 300 at the last  meeting, is evidence that the  public is very interested.  Generally speaking, response  to the plan is favourable. But  when it comes to the details of  putting the plan into effect,  many people, particularly  teachers, who of course will  bear the brunt of making the  system work, have a wide variety of concerns.  "But," said Roger Douglas,  Principal at Halfmoon Bay  Elementary, "those are problem solving issues. I fundamentally believe this program  offers us an opportunity to take  a lot of things that have happened in the last 10 to 20 years and  put them all together into  something that makes sense.  From what 1 can see, it has a lot  of integrity, and I hope it stays  thai way."  The biggest change will be the  reorganization of the present  grade structure.  The present Kindergarten to  Grade   three   will   become  primary and will be known as  Please turn to page 12  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast       25* per copy on news stands January 29,1990      Volume 44      Issue 5  Developer's plans  outlined for  Gospel Rock  r      by Ellen Frith  j'l  fully expect the entire  waterfront to end up in Village  At 9:30 am last Monday morning the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department responded to an alarm at  the residence of Walter Loitz on Rosamund Road. When Walter arrived, shortly after the firemen, he  was relieved to find that his young black labrador, (pictured above) had already been rescued.  Firemen had everything under control by 10 am to the relief of the nearby neighbours.  ���Kent ShcrMM photo  SCRD stalling on  Area C issue  by Ellen Frith  In spite of urging from both  Victoria and the District of  Sechelt to decide now the fate of  Electoral Area C, the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  board decided at last week's  meeting to give the recently  established standing committee  on the subject time to "mull the  options over" before any action  is taken. The committee is still  examining, for example, the  pros and cons of restructuring  Area C into a larger unit incorporating the entire Sechelt Inlet.  In a letter from the Ministry  of Municipal Affairs responding to a letter from the board  requesting that the SCRD  voting unit be changed from  1000 to 2000, three options have  been forwarding which all  eliminate Area C.  "As you may be aware," the  January 4 letter from Minister  Lyall Hanson states, "both the  District of Sechell and the Town  of Gibsons have expressed concern, nol only with the above re  quest, but also with the continued existence of Electoral  Area C which contains less than  200 people."  The letter goes on to say:  "Specifically, we need to focus  our review on options that  would not only eliminate Electoral Area C but would also  provide more equitable  municipal representation on the  board."  The regional district proposal  sent to Victoria "marginally improves municipal representation  on the board but does not deal  with Ihe problem of Electoral  Area C," the letter states.  District of Sechelt Representative Bob Wilson moved lhat  the SCRD "recommend Area C  be deleted and go with  Victoria's Option Two which  calls for voting unit of 2000  wilh Area C incorporated into  Area B. The voting strength  would allow Sechelt three votes;  Gibsons two votes; Area E two  votes; and one vole each in the  other areas.  Area C Director Stan Dixon  said that the board had agreed  to look at the options of realignment and it should do so.  "The demise of Area C  would come naturally in  November 1990 (when the next  election is slated)," Dixon said,  adding that he must do his best  to see that it survives if keeping  it alive is for the good of the  people of the Sunshine Coast.  He said, any initiatives concerning the area must come from the  SCRD and not Victoria or the  District of Sechelt.  Dixon told the Coast News he  is not prepared to run again as  director of the area in  November.  Area E Director Jim Gurney  said the area was "not going  anywhere until the end of the  year" and there was time to  "mull it over" and give the  standing committee the opportunity to examine the alternatives.  "I believe it (Area C) has a  genuine right to exist," he said.  (Tiwn of Gibsons) hands,'  developer Hayden Killam stated  at^last Tuesday's public information meeting in Gibsons  Council chambers, referring to  the land around and including  tnft much-loved Gospel Rock in  west Gibsons.  It was a statement which  brought a scattering of applause  , from the approximately 45 peo-  ������W!' attending the meeting, the  majority of whom were Area E  residents concerned about the  possible environmental impact  ' of an extensive development on  Killam \s 78-acre parcel of land  which borders their area and  which Killam proposes to  develop into lots if and when it  is rezoned by the Town from its  present R4 zoning (minimum lot  size of 2 acres) to Rl (minimum  lot size of 7500 square feet).  (NB: There is some question  as to the exact size of this particular parcel of land. Town  Planner Rob Buchan says it  amounts to 78 acres but Killam  said it is nearer to 70 acres.)  Concerns voiced by residents  of the area included the cutting  of the trees and the potential  runoff and erosion deforestation would cause, the intrusion  of the development on the  area's wildlife including an  established eagle tree, and the  increased traffic on the already  too-narrow Gower Point Road.  The applause was scattered  after Killam's remark because  although he assured the meeting  he "intended" to donate the  waterfront to the Town as part  of the required five per cent  dedication of the site as  parkland, nothing is yet in  writing and he would not say  the donation was absolutely  definite.  The next day, however, he  told the Coast News something  would be down on paper soon.  The proposal presented by  Killam at Tuesday's informa  tion meeting had been changed  significantly from that which  was brought before Council  earlier this month in that it now  excludes all the property located  east of the 85-metre elevation  point above Gower Point Road.  At this juncture, Killam said,  the rezoning of Gospel Rock,  the waterfront and the possibly  environmentally sensitive slope  bordering Gower Poinl Road is  no longer an issue.  Please turn to page 4  Pender untied  Water supply at risk  ���;       by Ellen Frith  I In a rare show of solidarity,  Pender Harbour Ratepayers'  President Joe Harrison said he  supported an initiative by Area  A Director Gordon Wilson to  have the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  reconsider a tabled rezoning bylaw which would have controlled development around Garden  Bay Lake.  The regional board has tabled  the. Garden Bay by-law Harrison told the board at last  week's board meeting, because  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs will not accept it without a  technical study that could take  years to complete.  "The SCRD has caved in,"  he said. "They shouldn't take  no for an answer."  Garden Bay Lake supplies  water to 300 residents in the  area, Harrison said and yet a  new subdivision is planned adjacent to the water system Intake and logging taking place in  the area.  "Residents have phoned me  complaining of oil on the lake,  logging equipment being washed beside the shore, heavy  equipment parked near the  water and a machine actually in  the lake clearing the foreshore,"  he said.  In discussions with Director  Wilson and Garden Bay Water-  board Chairman Tom Baker,  Harrison said he urged legal advice be sought regarding the  liability of developers before the  Garden Bay water system is affected.

It will, it seems to us, be a serious error for the federal  Conservatives and the NDP to seek to dismiss Jean Chretien as 'yesterday's man' during either the Liberal leadership convention - which we think Chretien will win - or in  the federal election to follow.  Jean Chretien is a remarkable politician. He seems the  quintessential French Canadian but commands great  respect and affection in Western Canada: he is renowned  for his folksy and unpretentious manner, but has served in  all the difficult portfolios in Ihe federal cabinet with  distinction in the past 20 years.  He seems lhat rarity; a proven administrator who has  the ability to walk the corridors of power without ever losing the common touch.  In particular, if Brian Mulroney and his cohorts seek to  discredit Chretien they are liable to be swimming  upstream, indeed. In six years in government Ihe Conservatives have not unveiled a single cabinet minister to match  Chretien's record in office. Neither have they produced a  spokesman of his credibility and charm.  The journal over the years has carried no particular  brief for ihe federal Liberals bul it is possible to contemplate Jean Chretien as our prime minister with a sense  of relief - and possibly enthusiasm. We wish him well.  A win needed  On page three BC Liberal Party Leader answers an  editorial we wrote last week speculating on his future in  provincial politics.  We do not doubt lhat Mr. Wilson is a splendid fellow,  a tireless worker, and a bright energy. He is definitely a  cut above the standard for local politics.  But success in politics is measured by elections won  and pretty soon Gordon is going to have to win one. He  has got amazing mileage out of his one electoral  triumph - over Ian Vaughan in Area A in 1985.  So far, his only tangible achievement provincially is  to get Harold Long elected in the last provincial election. Next time he has to win or he will join a  distinguished list of Liberal leaders who got nowhere in  BC.  One thinks of Pat McGeer and David Anderson as just  two examples of bright men who followed the same star  without success.  5 YEARS AGO  SCRD Chairman Jim Gurney announces that the  regional board has entered into an agreement with RBR  Investments to purchase the Capilano College building  and property lo be the eventual home of the regional  board.  Talks are planned in February to discuss public  schools in BC with members of the Sunshine Coast  community. 'Let's talk about schools' is described as  the beginning of a process to determine the future direction and emphasis of public schools in the province.  A preliminary meeting is held in Sechelt to discuss  Ihe incorporation of a new district municipality to Include large parts of regional areas B and C.  10 YEARS AGO  The changing quality of the environment in Howe  Sound is under study by the UBC Department of  Geography. A proposed strip mine on Gambier Island  and a liquefied natural gas port at Britannia Beach have  caused concern. Residents of the Sunshine Coast are  invited to participate.  A letter from the Canadian Postmasters Association  protests the proposed Saturday closing of rural post offices.  20 YEARS AGO  The regional board prepares the legislative  background so that Roberts Creek can organize a fire  department.  Stores in the Gibsons Harbour area are moving  towards the six-day shopping week, a move away from  Monday closing.  30 YEARS AGO  January 1960 had 7.5 inches of rain and snow with a  high temperature for the month of 59 degrees Fahrenheit  and a low temperature of 22 degrees.  The local school board has decided that children  within walking distance to school will not be afforded  bus privileges.  40 YEARS AGO  The building of a breakwater in Gibsons Harbour is a  top priority with the Gibsons Board of Trade.  Pender Harbour Hospital Auxiliary reports donating  $698 to the hospital during the current year.  f  The Sunshine  mst tit f  p.bti.h.d by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

Nutter  A thing I suppose we might  well see in the 90"s is the end of  the North Atlantic Treaty  Organization. The way if shapes  up, and if Gorbachev survives  and all that, and the EEC and  the two Germanys firm up, and  our real financial situations over  here get harder and harder to  dissemble...well it looks like  farewell Brussels, good-bye to  those funny North American  communities in West Germany,  and everybody home to swell  the hard pressed work force.  Before we resign NATO to  the files of un-read history there  is one Canadian contribution,  un-sung so far as I know, that's  worth perhaps a word before it  all goes to dust. For a peribdof  five years there was in Winnipeg  something called the NATO  Navigation School.  At peak it had 600 students,  all with university qualifications, all supposedly being able  to make out in English, and  from all the NATO countries:  France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, the  UK, Italy, Portugal, Greece and  Turkey (only four 1 think from  Turkey). And of course, a  goodly input from Canada.  None from the US. They  didn't say that they thought  their own navigation superior.  With the experience of WWII  i hey would have been laughed  out of court. They said  something about there being too  many of them. They sent an  'observer', and he was kept to  just that.  It was a wholly Canadian  operation. Canadians set the  course and did the teaching and  the flying. They had then a  reputation for air navigation.  The students, after an intense  six month live-in course, would  go back lo their countries and  instruct in their turn.  It provided a lively scene as  they all wore of.course their  own uniforms, and on the inevitable parades all marched to  their own jig-alongs. Orders on  parades, inherited from the  Brits, rang out with something  ..of the Guards' intonation. The  result could be a ballet that  would have delighted Massine.  The course itself was a  toughy. Some years later the international magazine of air  navigation referred to it as the  best air navigation course there  had ever been. With all the  necessary 'courses: spherical  trig., cartography (maps and  charts), meteorology, instruments (optics), radio and  radar, astro, dead reckoning,  airmanship; our top echelon  had added 'service management, 'leadership', 'current affairs', and 'history of Ihe war'.  We started a magazine, Vox-  air, the voice of aviation in the  West; awhile back I found it  still in the Canadian Audit  Bureau of Circulation's annual.  It said publishing every third  month, with exceptions. We  had it out every week.  There was of course, a problem with the language. Supposed as they were to know  enough English there were some  woefully at sea, and you  couldn't linger much, when lecturing, for translations. Once,  doing rounds after lights out in  the quarters I noticed three fire  buckets below the swinging  doors in the toilets.  Three sleeping Turks with  their feet in cold water to keep  them awake. Precis strewn  around. The one in the middle  was the one who knew the most  English.  I can remember no time when  there was any kind of trouble  between these clearly defined  groups of different young nationals; and we deliberately encouraged debates and cross-  border seminars in the students'  lounge at night. I like to put it  down to the fascination I felt  myself for the unique art/-  science that was then air navigation.  But across the runway on this  same airport in Winnipeg a  group of Canadian navigators  was already inventing the Iner-  tial Navigation System. Now  the main system on all the  world's long range airlines it  doesn't quite make our old  sport entirely obsolete. But hell,  a pilot could use it.  To a kiss  Humid seal of soft affections,  Tenderest pledge of future bliss.  Dearest lie of young connections.  Love's first snowdrop, virgin kiss!  Speaking silence, dumb confessions.  Passion's birth, and infant's play.  Dove-like fondness, chaste concession,  mowing dawn of brighter day!  Sorrowing joy, adieu's last action.  When lingering lips no more musl join.  What words can ever speak affection  So thrilling and sincere as thine?  Robert Hums  Profiles of this place  World Bank's role analysed  by Dave Fraser  Almost a quarter century of  working with the World Bank  in Asia and Africa has taught  Harold Brandreth that western-  style economic thinking is often  ill-suited to traditional  economies in the developing  countries.  A former World Bank Division Chief, Brandreth has lived  in such exotic locations as Burma, Malaysia, Pakistan,  Bangladesh, the Ivory Coast  and Saudi Arabia. He has  handled annual lending budgets  of up to $3 billion to finance the  construction of ports, railways,  highways, bridges, dams and  power stations.  He is now retired in a waterfront home near Middle Point  with his wife, Monique, a native  of Paris, who met Harold while  working at the World Bank's  international headquarters in  Washington, DC. The pair  moved to the Sunshine Coast  two years ago.  Brandreth says the developed  world should forgive outstanding loans to developing countries and lend still more money  to rebuild their ailing  economies. That is the only  way, he says, for the poor countries to climb out of their  morass of debt and have any  hope for the future.  He points out that it is the  poor who suffer most from the  belt-tightening measures and  higher taxes necessary to pay  off foreign loans. In many  countries, the proceeds from  nearly all exports are needed  just to pay the interest owing on  these debts. Last year, the  developing countries paid back  about $S0 billion more than  they received in new aid.  However, "we have to provide assistance at the local  economy level and teach and  encourage people to look after  their own development instead  of just dumping more money  into government-devised  schemes," says Brandreth.  Grandiose projects should be  abandoned in favour of small  scale undertakings relevant to  local needs. "Progress has to be  made at the community level."  Exporting Western economic  practices to the Third World  frequently erodes social systems  based on the extended family.  He believes there is much we  can re-learn from these tightly-  knit communities - particularly  with respect to achieving a well-  adjusted and happy lifestyle  with ��� minimum of material  possessions.  Brandreth is especially critical  of such projects as converting  self-sustaining village economies  over to single cash crop activities, such as coffee or cotton,  which require imported fertilizers, pesticides, etc., and are  vulnerable to serious worldwide price fluctuations.  A crop failure or price collapse can lead to the breakdown  of village society and ihe rampant growth of metropolitan  slums as youth migrate to the  cities in search of work and  sustenance.  The World Bank was created  in the I940's as a specialized  agency of the United Nations  (but with its own independent  management) to help re-build  Europe after World War II.  With this task finished, the  bank turned to financing  specific projects in the Third  World. Given an acceptable  economic rate of return, the  bank supports them with loans  at favourable interest rates.  Projects in the poorest countries  receive financing at nominal interest over a 50 year repayment  period, with no repayment for  the first 10 years.  Over the years, the bank has  had a good reputation for  careful project planning and implementation and, more recent  ly, it has developed a capacity to  assess the environmental impact  of its projects.  However, Brandreth feels  that development progress did  not always reflect lending  volumes, because of a tendency  to gear lending to pre-allocated  national lending quotas rather  than to real grass roots development needs, and that environmental care has been  somewhat lax.  For example, the bank's decision to finance roads in the  Amazon basin gave impetus to  the Brazilian government's  policy (born, partly of its need  for increased exports to meet  debt requirements) of encouraging farming, logging, mining  and cattle-raising by wealthy  opportunists and the landless  poor alike, with devastating  results for the rain forest  ecosystem and the tribal  cultures dependent on it.  Another example has been  the financial support, in India,  of a series of massive coal-fired  electric generating stations -built  with few pollutant controls,  which contributes to India's  current status as one of the  world's major sources of airborne pollution.

It was  Ithe centre of the community,  and was used very frequently.  My first visit to the hall was to  attend a meeting of the Howe  Sound Farmers Institute, at  which there were about 50 people.  Later I was invited to a  gathering of the Women's Institute, which was a social affair, and was welcomed to the  community.

Then I became a  member of the Fall Fair Board  and worked for about 10 years  on this important seasonal  event.  The preparation that went into putting on a fair took place  ihe year around, but the week  preceding the Thursday night  opening was extremely busy.  The hall was cleaned, tables  put up and decorated, the whole  interior tastefully decorated  also.  Wilson's time  is beginning  Editor:  In the January 22, 1990 issue  of the Coast News, John Burnside said that time is running  out for me to "make my  mark". He further asks what  meaning might be read into the  desire by Socred dissidents to  .start another party and not join  mine.  The "mark" of a true Leader  is measured by his/her courage  to stand up and speak out on  ' behalf of the people they serve;  to be true to their convictions  watersheds must be protected;  that the Carmanah Valley  should be kept in its entirety.  The "mark" of a Leader with  dedication is measured by his or  her capacity to tirelessly work  effectively on behalf of the people. To accomplish objectives  and not simply slam their opponent.

Sewing, crocheting, knitting  and embroidery were entered.  Beautiful floral displays were  prominently shown down the  centre of the hall. There was a  special section for children's  baking, canning etc. as well as a  special section of work from all  ages of school chidlren.  A Junior Garden Club of  which I was the leader put on a  wonderful exhibit of their  garden produce.  On the stage were the tea  tables and all kinds of goodies  were sold there.  Outside were the animals,  chickens, calves, pigs and goats.  Also, a children's pet parade  which was piped along by Eric  Thompson and his bagpipes. In  the Anglican Parish Hall the  spinners, weavers, and hobbyists held sway, a very interesting part of our Fall Fair.  The fair climaxed with a  dance on Saturday evening.  Those who worked on the  fair all agreed lhat Mrs.  LeFeuvre made the fair, we just  helped.  One of ihe unforgettable uses  of the hall was the Annual  Firemen's Ball put on every spring by the Volunteer Fire  Brigade. The hall was jam packed every year. No one wanted to  miss the performance put on by  the firemen when they dressed  up as ladies and did a floor  show, such as can-can dancers,  Charleston dancers etc.  One of Ihe highlites of the  evening was Fred Holland going  hand to hand across the wire  that holds (he building together.  Christmas concerts, Hallowe'en parties, birthday parties,  PTA bazaars, political  meetings, badminton and bingo  we all took part in, and I'm sure  there were more, but these are  what I remember.

This is nol so. There will be  ample supply of different accommodation available in all  price ranges, i.e. campgrounds,  resorts, motels, hotels and bed  and breakfasts.  There will certainly be days,  during July and August, when  * every available bed will be occupied, including bed and  ' breakfast operations, and so it  should be.  In fact, this was the case in  1989, 1988 and 1987 and in  years before that. It would indeed be a sorry stale of affairs if  we couldn't fill our beds during  the prime season. Many of us  accommodators are operating  12 months of the year and expenses, payroll and taxes, have  to be paid all year round, not>*!|l  only for the few summer mon- \  �����  ths.  1 am sure that many of your  readers will agree a prudent  traveller will make reservations  in advance, particularly during    ' t ,  the summer when everyone else  is on the move.  Besides, the lower Sunshine  Coast does not end in Sechelt.  There are fine accommodations  available on the way to and in  Madeira Park, lrvings Landing,  Garden Bay, Ruby Lake...so,  let's be positive and welcome ^. ^  our visitors and show them how  beautiful our part of the country really is.  I am not a spokesperson for  our industry, but am expressing  my personal view on the subject, based on my experience.  Gerhard W. Felgenhauer  Manager, Bella Beach Motel  Rooms available  Editor:  We discussed the vacancy  rates that are present on the  Sunshine Coast in the Pender  Harbour area. I've enclosed a  copy to you of the nine resorts,  motels and hotels north of  Sechelt to Ruby Lake.  There are also many vacancies in the Powell River area  which is also part of the Sunshine Coast. The only 'no  vacancies' on the lower Sunshine Coast are found in Gibsons and Sechelt. In the region  of Pender Harbour that I listed  the average vacancy rate is 80  per cent.  On Friday, January 19, there  was a meeting of the hotels  from Port Mellon to Egmont,  the lower Sunshine Coast at the  Driftwood Inn in Sechelt.  During the meeting the outcome to date showed that there  has been mistaken information  regarding 'No Accommodation'  on the Sunshine Coast. There is  plenty of available accommodations at this time.  If a visitor is having trouble  finding accommodations they  cad call Travel Sunshine Coast  at 885-3230 which is manned 24  hours a day.

Coast News, January 29,1990  Plans for Gospel Rock  Continued from page 1  "The present rezoning is for  the area west of the crest of the  hill," he told the meeting adding, however, that "one day"  there will be an application for  rezoning for the slope when, he  intends to build townhouses.  Killam's initial rezoning application brought before Gibsons Council January 16, was to  have Block Six and Seven and  an ajoining three-acre parcel  (Block Three) which is presently  under consideration for incorporation into the Town, rezoned from R4 to Rl. This would  have allowed Killam a maximum of 290 residential lots.  That by-law was defeated and  instead   council   gave   first  reading to a by-law which  would change the area zoning  from R4 to a new R5 zoning  which would limit the minimum  lot size to 12,000 square feet instead of the present 7500.  At last Tuesday's meeting  Killam said that since his  amended porposal calls for lot  sizes on the reduced acreage of  just under 10,000 square feet  the difference between an R5  zoning and an Rl zoning, in this  case, is 13 lots.  The proposal now calls for a  maximum of 141 lots, Killam  told the meeting, which he intends to develop in 25 block sections. Lot prices for the project  he told the Coasl News, will  vary from an average minimum  Developer Haydn Killam explained his plans for the Gospel Rock  area at the edge of Gibsons at an information meeting last week.  ���Ellen Frith photo  of $50,000 per lot to $70,000  and up for those with a view.  In effect, the January 23  public meeting called by Killam  was in regards to a by-law  already defeated but one which  may, according to Town Planner Rob Buchan, be recalled  within 30 days by Mayor Diane  Strom and given reconsideration by council.  "It was a fairly good hearing  (on January 23) and as an information meeting it was a  success," Buchan told the Coast  News, adding that he would  therefore recommend the initial  by-law be recalled.  The worst case scenario in  this development, Killam  pointed out, is that he, as the  land developer, will put in more  lots than he says he will.  "There is no link between  what I tell you now and what I  do when I get an Rl zoning,"  he said, but the new subdivision  control by-law is a "tough one"  Buchan added and because of  the importance of the area, the  Town Planner said he fully intends to exercise his prerogative  as Approving Officer under the  Land Title Act to call public information hearings, after rezoning.  These future meetings will be  to address and discuss the  several aspects of the final subdivision plans which may cause  public concern such as deforestation, road congestion and  the environmental impact of the  development on the area.  These meetings will "keep the  public in touch with the  development," Buchan said.  SCRD urges Gibsons to acquire  Gospel Rock as community park  by Ellen Frith  Stressing that co-operation  between all parties potentially  affected by the proposed  development near Gospel Rock  is needed lo assure the best  possible situation for the area,  Area E Director Jim Gurney  moved lhat the Sunshine Coasl  Regional District (SCRD) send  a letter to Gibsons Mayor Diane  Strom and council wilh its concerns and to urge the Town to  acquire Gospel Rock as a park.  The proposed plans for the  *  Year End Sale sat., Feb. 3 oniy  Ht off all Cassettes & C.D.'s  rezoning and development of  Block Six and Seven (approximately 78 acres) which border  on Area E west of Gibsons is in  a "very sensitive area," Gurney  told the board. The letter,  therefore, is not to be viewed as  interference in Town affairs bul  is to be sent in "the sincere spirit  of co-operation."  In the letter, the regional  district requests that council,  "take into consideration the impact of a relatively dense subdivision of the subject properties on Ihe surrounding lower  density residential area in the  Elphinstone Official Community Plan area. Particular consideration should be given to access and its impact on the lower  standard rural roads in the surrounding area."  Gurney also pointed out that  properties to the south and  downslope from Block Six have  experienced serious flooding  from runoff which will be aggravated by the proposed  development.  "We would request thai  council investigate its ability to  require drainage structures outside of its boundaries to deal  with this problem," the letter  states, and suggests that a joint  effort by the developer, the  Town and the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways  be made to resolve and potential  runoff problems prior to rezoning.

Idyllic life on Keats Island  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The old Cork urn farm on  Keats, a landmark for ferry  travellers on their way to and  from Horseshoe Bay, still supports livestock, five Holsteins,  and an apple orchard of Big  Reds, along with Cox's Orange  and Transparent.  The cattle belong to George  Koning, caretaker of a  neighbouring property where he  keeps a Belgian mare, a Border  collie, a black cat and a couple  of pigs.  "During the lambs-on-the-  ferry episode I jokingly  threatened lo bring Ihe mare,  Annie, to Keats on the small  ferry. She only weighs 1900  pounds I fold them. But 1 think  Annie would have balked al gelling aboard."  George had suggested to his  employer lhat a sturdy horse is  more useful on the island than a  iractor, not so much in need of  repair and just as strong. "She  has already pulled a truck out of  a ditch here on the island."  The Border collie, named  Shaheela after one of the Aga  Khan's people in North Vancouver where George worked as  caretaker of that Moslem  leader's property there and  Shadow, the cat, are pals.  A visitor may understandably  be startled by the antics of these  two animals in the house. The  cat, quite relaxed, allows the  collie to drag it by the neck over  the kitchen linoleum. "If I  should just wet the floor with  soap and water, they'd mop il  up for me."  This retired farmer has  enough projects afoot to tire a  young one just to think of them.  There's a chicken coop to build,  a woodshed, a barn and  workshop and shakes to split.  "Nothing like keeping occupied," says George as he  serves his guest a hearty meal of  lamb chops and all that goes  with them.  And along with supper there  are anecdotes galore and some  of that farmer sense of humour.  When George was on his farm  near Chilliwack, for instance,  he raised some mules as well as  his Belgian workhorses. "A  jackass stud and a Belgian  mare. Splendid mules."  "But, uh, the donkey is just a  little animal compared to the  Belgian."  "No problem there. Bulldoze  a trench and back the marc into  it."  "Oh."  And here's one lhat catches a  person no mailer which way he  answers: "What's the name of  thai piece of harness that fits  over the base of the horse's  tail?"  "Urn. Croup,..something."  "Crouper. Any horse's ass  knows that." Oh well.  And as he put another maple  chunk on Ihe fire, "Can't tire  up too brisk in ihis slove, else  they'll complain of the heat  over there on Bowen Island."  George has just told me andi  he's quite serious lhal he knows)  of a Border collie on Denman  Island that needs a home. The  collie's people are moving to the  city which is no place for a  country dog.  "The collie is eight months, a  neutered male," says George.  "Call me al 886-2180."

The Roberts Creek Fire  Department was at the scene  within minutes when large branches fell across power lines on  Lower Road near Joe Road,  where there is still blasting and  road construction going on.  The two lines that were  broken and left hanging were  sparking and jumping around  on the lower side of the road.  Many houses were out of  power as one of the lines was  according to BC Hydro, a  primary line, the other being a  secondary. Firemen and Tire-  truck kept the road blocked off  and traffic clear awaiting BC  Hydro crews. There was danger  of the sparking lines catching  the trees or bush nearby on fire.  As it turned out Hydro crews  had the lines repaired within the  hour, and then the fire department had to be called back  again as one of the lines had indeed started some bush on fire  on Lower Road.  It was only an old dead  branch but it was going quite  well. Firemen dropped their  regular jobs and again arrived  at the scene. The small fire was  quickly put out.  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Firemen have again proved how  quickly they can get to a scene  and how well and cheerfully  they do their job.  According to the Hydro  spokesman, this was the only  serious problem in Roberts  Creek on Tuesday, even though  there were more secondary lines  down and three fuses blown.  It was a wild Tuesday. Fir  cones and branches were flying  through the air, as this wind  seemed to come from the west  instead of the south as it usually  does. It was a beautiful sight at  the beaches, with the waves  \w��  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

In doing so, the bank has  moved closer to the historic role  of the International Monetory  Fund (IMF), a sister organization with which it has always  had close ties. Both organizations are staffed with western  trained orthodox economists  whose prescriptions for development invariably reflect the  pattern of the 'developed'  world.  As these policies are increasingly brought to bear in the  Third World as a condition of  receiving further air, Brandreth  muses, what are the chances for  the environment and the  world's resource base as the  poor 80 per cent of the world  struggles to pursue the same  'growth' and 'consumption'  policies as those with which the  affluent 20 per cent has succeeded in creating the existing  havoc?  Clearly, a new approach has  to be developed, with entirely  different value concepts, if the  earth as we know it, is to survive. It is this point that Brandreth, a graduate of both UBC  and the prestigious London  School of Economics, is striving  to address in a book he is now  working on.

Don't wait  too long, tables are going fast.  ARE YOU A SKIER?  I attended the Tetrahedron  Ski Club meeting on ihe 22.

If you are like most  of us you managed to procure  an extra unwanted pound or  two over the extended holiday  period, for some unknown  reason and perhaps you may  have become a mite lazy.  Perhaps the solution lo these  problems is within your grasp at  these classes in our hall.  Mrs. Evans Herman, RN,  conducts Tai Chi classes each  Monday and Wednesday from  II to 12 noon which represents  seniors' exercise. Tai Chi (pronounced Tie Chee) is a form of  martial arts developed in China  thousands of years ago.  It encompasses over 100 basic  postures and is practiced daily  by many far Eastern peoples.  The movements are graceful  and designed to unite body,  mind and spirit.  Previous columns have elaborated on formation of a  wellness group. Tai Chi is used  extensively in wellness  workshops, so theoretically one  can assume that our program is  at least partly underway.  Tai Chi is used because its  soft creative movement form  can be exercised daily as a  physical warmup creating a  relaxation technique thai  focusses on quieting of (he  mind, movement and controlled  breathing.  At this junction the ball is in  your court. If you care to know  more about Tai Chi, Gerry  Chailler at 886-3728 will be able  to enlighten you.  If you care lo practice the art,  classes, as previously mentioned  are held in our hall. A fee of  two dollars per session is your  cost,  which applies to both  members and non-members.  However, in the case of non-  members the limitation is for  two sessions, at which time  membership must be taken out  in Branch 69 if you care to carry  on with the regular sessions and  we hope you will.  As discussed in previous columns, there is no age limit to  become a member of our  branch. Membership entitles  you to participate in the variety  of activities carried on each  week in our hall, plus the opportunity to meet and make  friends with a very friendly  group of people. Try Tai Chi. It  could work wonders for you.  SPRING CONCERT  Although one may feel that  the present weather is not conducive to spring, such is not the  case where Nikki Weber is concerned.  Plans are underway, and  rehearsals are being conducted,  for another of Nikki's musical  extravaganzas to take place on  Saturday evening March 24.  Tickets will be ready within the  next week and will be available  from the usual outlets.  Mark calendars and get your  tickets early as these concerts invariably are sold out well in advance of the performance dale.  Further details will be published  next week. Keep in mind that  tickets are limited because of the  seating capacity of our hall.  VALENTINE DINNER  Although Valentine's Day  will have come and gone, the  so-called President's Valentine  Dinner will be held in our hall  on February 24 starting at 6 pm.  As in the case of the sold out  spaghetti dinner on January 27,  tickets will be limited because of  the space problem in our pros' x hall.

Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER AND  APPROVING OFFICER  What are your views of the Future of our Forests?  British Columbia is rich in land and resources, in particular our forest lands. There are many  differing values and views of the forests, and many opportunities for the use of our forest anil  range land resources.  Views on the management of thvse resources are varied anil often diverse because people place  different values on the way t he y.and others, use the forest. Some of the issues regarding forest  lands include:    , .  ��� community economic dependency;  ��� timber harvesting;  ��� traditional aboriginal practices;  ��� quality and quantity of fish and wildlife;  ��� water quality;  ��� environmental quality;  ��� recreation and tourism;  ��� wilderness preservation; and  ��� range-forest interface.  When these activities are not compatible, difficult land and resource use decisions have to be  made. The B.C. Forest Resources Commission needs to understand how the forests are viewed  by the citizens of the Province and how the public can be involved, so thai we can plan for the  integrated use of the forests.  In the words of ihe Minister of Forests,"...many of the issues I musi deal with are brought  about because we have no clear view of exactly what the forests of British Columbia represent....  I view this to be of paramount importance because I believe that until we have a generally  accepted vision, it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to resolve manv of the other  issues facing us.  The Commission wants your views on the future of British Columbia's forests through  the 1990s and into the 21st century.  The Process  The Commission is currently requesting written submissions from British Columbians. This  Spring, community meetings will be held in locations across the Province to hear from all those  wnohavc submitted written briefs. Based on these submissions and the community meetings,  the Commission will^>reparcan()|itionsl'aperoutliningaltcrnativesand their implications lor  B.C.'s forests. A draft ofthe Options Paper will be distributed in the Fall, 1990 and you will be  asked for your response to this Paper in a second series of meetings. Vour comments and  suggestions will be included in the final statement which will form the basis of future planning  andiiccision making for the Commission.  Timing  March 16, 1990  April-May, 1990  June-August, 1990  September, 1990  Mid September to  mid October, 1990  Winter, 1990-1991  Written submissions due  Community meetings to obtain input from the public  Develop Options Paper with alternatives and implications  Distribute Options Paper to the public  Community meetings to discuss Options Paper  Submission io Minister of Forests  The First Step: Write us now  Your written response must be to us by March 16,1990so that community meeting locations  and times can be established.  How to Submit  The Commission w-ants to hear from British Columbians.

Coast News, January 29.1990  Profiles of this place  A most charming pioneer  by Ruth Forrester  Halfmoon Bay residents have  much to brag about and many  reasons lo be thankful for their  good fortune in living where the  scenery is exquisite and the people are special.  Prominent among these special people is a lady whom many  are forlunte in having as a  friend.  Mary Shannon is a bright,  pretty, intelligent and winy  lady, who, despite her 87 years,  has lost none of these assets.  She has a positive optimistic  outlook on life from which  many of us could take example,  and retains a keen interest in  whal is happening in (he area in  which she has resided for the  past 36 years.  Born Mary Simmons in London, England, she met Charles  Tinkley when both were  members of a hiking club.  "We used lo go on 20 mile  hikes every weekend to gel away  from the city and enjoy ihe outdoors."  Charles was a widower with a  family when he and Mary married, and in 1947 ihey came to  Canada.  "Charles Tinkley's lifelong  ambition was lo come to  Canada and pioneer, so we  bought an 18-acre property at  Dorislon on Sechelt Inlet. Quite  a change from our comfortable  home in Surrey in England."  They were located 16 miles  north of Sechelt and four miles  from Egmont which was reached by way of Skookumchuck.  The only road at that time was  Charlie McDermid's logging  road up ihe mountainside, and  for the next six years their only  means of transportation was an  18 foot boat.  "Whal we did nol know  about boats could have filled a  book, but, with the help,  criticism and examples of such  good neighbours as the Gjerdin  and McDermid families, we  quickly learned to negotiate the  Skookumchuck Rapids. Towards Ihe end of the outgoing  tide we would head out to Egmont for stores and mail, then  hurry back near the start of the  incoming tide."  When they needed oil for  their stove the oil tanker would  blow on her siren and drop a  tank overboard. They wouM  ihen tow it ashore by rowboal  and drag il up the beach to the  house.  "The highlight of the year  was New Year's Eve which was  always celebrated at the Tinkley  home. People from all around  would gather for the celebration  where there would be music  wilh George Gilmour playing  guitar, we had skits and even  sketches from Shakespeare's  words.  "On one occasion Charles  played Shylock to my Portia.  Charles was a wonderful,  natural aclor. For people like  old Mr. and Mrs. Gjerdin, who  had scarcely been out of the sel-  Miry Tinkley Shannon, one of the stalwart pioneer residents of  the Coast, is pictured at her home in Halfmoon Bay.  - Ruth Forrealer photo  llemenl for 30 years, il was the  highlight of their year."  It was in 1954 lhal Ihe  Tinkleys decided to move lo  Redrooffs Road.  "Charles' health was failing  and we'd had our fill of  pioneering."  When Charles passed away  Mary became very involved in  local activities and committees.  She served as secretary on the  Centennial Committee which  built the original Welcome  Beach Community Hall in 1957.  In addition, she was secretary  of the Sunshine Coast Senior  Citizen   Housing   Committee,  which, under the direction of  Canon Greene, was responsible  for the construction of the  seniors residences known as  Greenecourt in Sechelt.  She also spent time as  secretary to the Welcome Beach  Community Association which  endowed her with honorary life  membership.  The Area B Ratepayers  Association was yet another  group which benefitted from  Mary's expertise when she served as their secretary.  Mary is still active in most of  these groups and is frequently  Halfmoon F3.iy H.ippeninys  Child care centre  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The Halfmoon Bay Child  Care cenlre has finally moved  into premises at the new Halfmoon Bay Elementary School.

It was not all 'committees'  for Mary in her Redrooffs  years. A strong swimmer who  enjoyed the ocean winter and  summer, it was she who spent  many happy hours teaching the  summer visitors' children how  to swim. Later, she was then  teaching their children, many of  whom are still close friends who  fondly remember those summers on the beach with Mary.  For 17 years it was Mary who  wrote Ihe Halfmoon Bay column, first for the Coast News  and later for the Peninsula  Times, up until 1979. Her  writings were always interesting  and informative, making it a  hard task for her successor to  follow.  Her reason for discontinuing  writing the column was that in  1979 Mary and Vince Shannon,  also of Redrooffs were married.  There was a happy reception in  Welcome Beach Hall attended  by almost everyone in the  neighbourhood who gathered to  wish this popular couple well.  They purchased a motor-  home and spent the next several  years travelling from coast to  coast and as far south as Mexico. Those were happy years for  Mary and Vince until last year  when Vince passed away, leaving Mary and family and friends  grieving over their loss.  Even when left alone, Mary  has not lost her 'itchy feet'  which keep her on the move.  Just this month she returned  from having spent time travelling and visiting with Charles  Tinkley's grandson in. Florida.  "I did have a good time, but  it was so good to gel home to  Halfmoon Bay and my friends  here. I may jusi decide to stay  home in the future now that our  winters are less sevsre."  That remains to be seen,  because both the Tinkley and  the Shannon families remain  very close to Mary and are  regular visitors. No doubt they  will insist that Mary visit with  them occasionally, and there is  no doubt she will do just that.  ' It is almost 10 years since  Mary handed over the task of  ..writing the Halfmoon Bay column to Ruth Forrester who still  relies on Mary for advice and  information.  If Mary is displeased with the  writing in the column she does  nol hesitate to let the writer  know.  Such criticisms are treasured,  and long may she continue to  give them.  SPRING IS COMING!

(See story below). -Rum loonier photo  Committee choses to fight  for Halfmoon Bav P.O.  On Tuesday, January 23 there  were 14 people at a meeting in  Coopers Green Hall to establish  strategy for a protest of the  closure of the Halfmoon Bay  Post Office.  Jim Elliot was appointed  chairman with Maxine Nelson  as vice-chairman and Maggie  McDougall, secretary.  The main theme of the  meeting was to state thai a full  posi office musl be established  in the Halfmoon Bay area.  "At the present time this is  Ihe only area on Ihe Sunshine  Coast which has been affected  by the closures. Bul already  there are plans in place to close  down Sechelt as well as all the  other post offices on ihe Peninsula," staled Mr. Elliot.  In the meantime it was felt  that the most important procedure was lo make sure support is received from every resident of Halfmoon Bay when a  petition appears in the near  future.  Members of the committee  have volunteered to go door to  door for signatures, and request  that letters be written lo Prime  Minister Brian Mulroney expressing displeasure at what is  being done to our postal services.  "The franchises which are  being opened up offer neither  security nor the confidentiality  which is required of a post  master or post mistress. Those  operating postal outlets are not  required lo take an oath, and  your confidential mail may be  handled by teenage help or  whoever happens lo be there,"  said former post mistress Maxine Nelson.  "The folks of Prince Edward  Island got up in arms and protested. Their rural post offices  have not been shut down. If the  whole of the Sunshine Coast  gets behind the Halfmoon Bay  protest we could have a chance  lo save our post of rices." stated  Jim Elliot.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor and Gordon Wilson attended the meeting and expressed  their full support for the campaign which is about to take  place and declared they will help  wherever they can by recruiting  support from all areas of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  Those who are interested in  helping with this important  campaign should give Jim Elliot  a call at 885-2076.  Continued from pane 1  Primary one, two, three and  four.  Grades 11 and 12 will become  the graduate program and will  be called Graduate one and two.  There will be a compulsory  Core Curriculum that will occupy about 80 per cent of a student's time at the primary and  early intermediate levels and  tapering to approximately 10  per cent at the graduate level.  The time not occupied by the  Core Curriculum will give  teachers, with input from  parents, the opportunity to  develop local programs.  Students in the two graduate  years will have the choice of a  University Preparation Program, a Career Preparation  Program or an Explorations  Program  Other major changes are  ungraded primary classrooms, a  dual entry system for primary  students, mandatory work experience for the graduate level  and a revamping of the way  students are assessed.  An Indian Education program is being developed to increase the appreciation of  Native culture and to ensure  that first nation students retain  their linguistic and cultural  heritage.  The intermediate level will be  where most of the changes will  occur. At present. Grade 4 to 7  are housed in elementary  schools and Grades 8 to 10 are  in high schools.  When asked what will happen there, Joanne Pearson,  Principal al Davis Bay Elementary School said simply, "We  really don't know yet."  At the moment, the ministry  is leaving the solution of problems like that to the individual  school districts. The plan is being phased in over a 10 year  period, so most of the changes  will be worked out gradually.  One of the most interesting  facts to emerge from the public  forum meetings is that here on  the Sunshine Coast, many of  the Year 2000 concepts have  been in operation for some,  time.  At the primary level, teachers  are already using many of the  ungraded classroom methods  that the new plan calls for and  there has been a work experience program for high  school students for the last six  years.  In the discussions of the  graduate program, the issue of  mandatory work experience is  getting a mixed response. The  local program, which is not  mandatory, is working very  well. This year, I2S students are  spending approximately one  tenth of their school time in a  variety of local businesses and  professions, from retail stores  to doctors' offices.  Most agreed that work experience is a benefit to the 90  per cent of students who will  not go lo university, but both  Martyn Wilson, Principal of  Elphinstone Secondary School,  and Jack Pope, Principal of  Chatelech Secondary School,  pointed out that compulsory  work experience for students on  the university program might  overload an already crowded  schedule.  "Some students in my  classes," said Pope, "spend  more lime at work than they  spend in class."  Lengthy discussions at the  forums revolved around such  questions as the relevance of the  work experience training to ac  tual job market conditions; incentives for employers to compensate for the time spent with  students; the reactions of  employees to student workers;  concern over the enormous  amount of funding that will be  necessary and the way the  government will provide it; the  fate of French Immersion; the  need to adapt to a new system  of evaluating students; the fate  of special needs students; the  need for teacher retraining, and  several other minor issues.  The fundamental questions  of what education should actually be in this last decade of  the 20th century became the real  issue in all the discussions. Do  we give students a 'well rounded  education' in the tradition of  the Edwardian gentleman and  trust that will give them an adequate base to cope with their  adult world?  Do we teach them how to  think so they can critically examine current world conditions  and make intelligent decisions?  Do we concentrate on preparing  them for the job market?  Or do we attempt to do all  these things? Can we do all  these things?  Martyn Wilson is optimistic.  "1 think that a lot of the objections that have come up are  concerns over details, rather  than philosophical concepts,  and the details can be worked  out."

(See  story below).  Peace group travels  to Nanoose Bay  A contingent of Sunshine  Coast residents with homes between Powell River and Gibsons  travelled to Nanoose Bay near  Nanaimo on Sunday to meet  with navy personnel and express  safety concerns.

It  should be converted lo a UN  emergency training centre or to  other peaceful uses, according  lo the peace group.  Residents also asked whether  Nanoose's emergency procedures extend to the Sunshine  Coast, fewer than 12 miles from  range at some points.  Volunteer  US navy vessels which visit  Nanoose periodically for testing  usually carry nuclear weapons,  and some of the boats are propelled by nuclear reactors.

Charges against a man and woman for the possession of a narcotic for the purpose of trafficking have been laid. ���Fru Burnside photo  Trustees get the facts  Drug abuse efforts  by Rose Nicholson  A dream is beginning to come  true in Halfmoon Bay. For  some lime now, several  members of ihe community  have been working on the concept of a Community Education  Center, or Community School,  for Ihe area.  Al Ihe January 23 meeting of  the School Board, Principal  Roger Douglas and teachers  Carol Feenstra and Jill Short  explained the idea lo trustees.  Halfmoon Bay was seen as a  separate geographical identity  with a variety of community  needs such as daycare, preschool, continuing education  and activities for teens and  adults, but without the facilities  that are available in the larger  centers like Sechelt and Gibsons.  So the idea of a Community  Education Center was born.  The school was seen as the focal  by Rose Nicholson  The problem of drug and  alcohol abuse on the Sunshine  Coast is being tackled from  several different angles.  At the January 23 meeting of  Ihe school board, trustees listened to three people talk about  whal   is   happening   in   the  schools.

She stressed her heavy work  load did not allow her ihe lime  to work directly in the schools,  but wherever possible she tries  to work with counsellors and jr  parent groups.  "1 see myself as a catalyst,"  she said. "This work is more effective as a grass roots situation,  where everyone, parents, teachers, the public, gets involved.  I can give people information  on things like Community Action Program (CAP) grants and  community programs. But once  they gel started, they're on their  own."  Jim McGowan, Vice-Principal at Chatelech Secondary  School, is the district representative on an interagency committee which is attempting to  develop new and better ways to  combat substance abuse.  He reported to trustees on a  recent conference that he attended in Vancouver. "Our  program here is equal lo any in  BC." he said.  Martyn Wilson, Principal at  Elphinstone, described a recent  workshop, 'Parents as Preven-  tors' where parents and counsellors discussed Ihe ways  parents could short circuit the  F route young people take t6 drug  and alcohol habits.  point of community activities,  providing facilities and  resources that would satisfy the  needs of all the residents in the  area.  In the last few months, the  first two phases of Ihe scheme  have become a reality. The  opening of the new elementary  school last fall satisfies the major need of the scheme, a place  to operate in. And a daycare  center, the result of a tremendous amount of work by  parents, is now in operation on  the school site.  Douglas, Feenstra and Short  each play three roles. They are  teachers, they are directors of  the daycare centre and they are  parents.  As teachers, they are excited  about the atmosphere in Ihe  school. "People feel good when  they come into our school,"  said Feenstra.  As daycare directors, they are  proud of the accomplishments  of all the parents who put the  centre together. "They got an  old bunkhouse from Claholm  Falls," said Short. "They  dismantled it, put it on a barge,  built a foundation for it, put it  all back together again and then  completely remodelled it."  As parents, they feel a sense  of security knowing thai their  children, from an early age, will  be close by and in a safe environment. "This is a great  comfort, especially for working  moms." said Feenstra.  Douglas told trustees the  daycare centre is financially  self-supporting. At the moment, they are bringing in more  money than (hey are spending in  wages and other costs and the  surplus is going lo Ihe Community Education Center.  Discussing some of the challenges thai have been faced in  putting the concept together,  Douglas said, "Sometimes il's  hard and sometimes it's scary,  but the way we look at it is,  there's no problem we can'l  solve, because the vision is  there. The vision is for the community lo grow."  "The support we're asking  for," added Short, "is an opportunity to provide a place  where learning is cherished and  considered a right for every person in the community, regardless of their age."

Of  course by the time il comes you  imay be long past wanting it  'anymore. There are, though,  !some things you can count on.  ; Spring will come, heaviness  will lift, the Sun will shine and  everything will look a lot  brighter.  ; February seems lo be the  {turn-around month. The two  planets (Venus and Jupiter) lhal  represent good luck, good  friends and generally good  limes have boih been retrograde  tor a while indicating a period  where those energies arc difficult lo access.  On February 8, Venus goes  direct once more, followed by  Jupiter on February 24.  Additionally Piulo, the  planet of death and rebirth,  backwards beginning on ihe  19th, suggesting a lessening of  the intense heaviness associated  wilh it. In other words, things  should siart picking up very  soon.  February also marks another  significant time. February 15 is  the halfway point in a five year  period of intense polarization ���  which commenced with the  Harmonic Convergence in mid-  August, 1987.  According lo Jose Arguelles,  the Mayan calendar, considered  a mystic record of the evolutionary patterns of the earth's  inhabitants, noted August 16,  17 and 18, 1987 as Ihe beginning  of a major change in the history  of tliis world.  For five years, lie said, the  world will go through a lime  where energies become increasingly polarized. That will be  followed by a period of  purification followed by a complete change in the world as wc  know it.  Arguelles wasn't alone in his  interpretations. By some strange  coincidence the legends of the  Hopi Indians also specified this  as a time of significant transition, which lent enough  credibility to Arguelles' interpretations lo bring thousands of  people all over the world  together in recognition of the  harmonic convergence.  Whether or nol the whole  tiling was a con is something  that each person must judge for  him/herself. Examine Ihe  changes in your life and on a  worldwide basis since that time.  Could he be right? Is there  something more happening here  than our usual day-to-day  dramas and political struggles?  And if he is right, if February  is the mid-point in some  polarization, what then? What  does it mean to the individual?  Different people offer general  advice about choosing light over  dark, releasing resentments,  forgiving those who have  violated you - all very spiritual  things bul difficult at times for  those of us whe have not yet  reached sainthood.  I would suggest, yes, do all  the work you can in clearing up  old hurls and hates. Work hard  lo forgive and seek forgiveness  where you have violated. The  other person's response is unimportant. Whal is important is  lhal you clear yourself.  On a day-to-day basis, if you  look at the evidence and believe  that this may be a time of major  transition for the earth and ils  people, then I would suggest  that each choice, each action,  each behaviour becomes likewise significant, because from  this perspective, we can't see the  ripple effect of our own  behaviour.  Keep that in your awareness  and see what it does.  Caucasas  music  Come and hear Nico, Ihe  Zamfir of Caucasas music, al  the Twilight Theatre on Sunday, February 4 al 2 pm.

Box 2629, Sechelt, BC, VON 3A0  by Peter 1 rower  Finally, the trial date rolls  around. Wilson has hoped  against hope that the whiskey-  sodden Quinn might have the  decency to abstain for this vital  appearance - but one whiff of  the shyster's breath tells him  otherwise. His fale hinges on  ihis drunken fool of a man. It is  nol an encouraging prospect.  The prosecution begins by  outlining the details of the bond  swindle. Donald Holliday had  evidently engineered Ihe scheme  with two other ex-cons - Pal  Patterson and Fred Reidlinger.  Patterson, who had served time  for a previous slock fraud, was  evidently the brains of the  operation. Reidlinger, who hailed from Portland, Oregon, had  lithographed 100 copies of a genuine $1000 bond there, and the  other two had peddled the  bogus stocks on Wall Street in  New York. The swindle was  soon discovered and traced lo  Patterson and Holliday, who  were both arrested in Toronto.  It was apparently at this point  lhat Holliday had implicated  Herb Wilson as the mastermind.  Wilson listens in consternation. The only evidence of his  purported involvemenl is Holliday's statement and the  supposedly-coded letters front  San Quentin. Surely they can't  convice him on such flimsy  grounds as this.  The dogged prosecutor,  however, has other ideas. Unexpectedly, lie produces three recent issues of a True Detective  magazine. They contain a sensationalized account of Herb  Wilson's career as King of ihe  Safecrackers. The prosecutor  reads a couple of lurid excerpts  -then, striking a theatrical pose,  points an accusing finger al Ihe  stunned ex-preacher.  "Given this man's criminal  background," he booms, "caii  anyone in this courtroom  possibly doubt his guilt? One  hundred thousand dollars is  nothing to a man who has  stolen millions. His accomplices  have given sworn testimony that  Wilson devised this entire swindle behind prison walls and  there is little reason to disbelieve  them. This cunningly-conceived  operation has his unique stamp  all over it."  The prosecutor continues for  several minutes, weaving a  skillful web of damning  oratory. Herb Wilson sits in a  daze. Out of Ihe corner of his  eye he can see several members  of the jury eyeing him with  disapproval. The smooth-  talking crown counsel is nailing  him to Ihe cross on the basis of  his past record and Donald  Holliday's lies.  The tipsy and incompetent  Quinn takes the floor in  Wilson's defence but his statement is bumbling and ill-  prepared. No match for the  prosecutor's flashy rhetoric, his  words sound unconvinced and  unconvincing. Wilson listens to  his dismal performance in growing alarm. The jury is obviously  not buying i'.  In due course, Ihe jury  members file out. After what  seems a very short time indeed,  they return to the courtroom.  "We find the defendant guilty  as charged," the foreman intones solemnly.  Utterly chrushed, Herb  Wilson is remanded for sentencing and returned to his dismal  cell in the Don Jail. There is  nothing else lo do but wait for  the final hammer to fall.  A week later, Wilson is  returned lo Ihe courtoom. The  judge eyes him grimly.  "Herbert Emerson Wilson. You  are hereby sentenced lo nine  years in Ihe Kingston Penitentiary."  To be continued...

Nothing could be more  true of books. I've loved books  and reading ever since I could  open my first picture book.  As was music, in my home,  reading was encouraged and  stressed; it was a part of our  lives. Thai is probably why to  this day I love books. Not just  the popular on the rack, in  every store pocket books, bul  the classics, such as Charles  Dickens' David Copperfield,  Call of the Wild by Jack London, Shakespeare's play Macbeth and the famous Alexander  Dumas classics such as Man in  Ihe Iron Mask.  And, who could resist the  .-hildrens' classics such as  Thornton Burgess' Sammy Jay,  Peter Rabbit, Buster Bear and  Old Mother Nature and company?  If children aren't encouraged  to read and explore ihe wondrous avenues of reading, they  have lost a great deal. Perhaps  such children will pick up a  book and realize what is between those pages when they  grow older.  A surprising amount of people never read a book until they  are 20 or so. How did they gel  through school? Were they the  ones who only read the front  and back jacket sleeves for their  book reports? I guess so.  Maybe Ihcy are the ones who  have trouble spelling simple  words. There are a lot of people  with this kind of problem, bul  there are -also a lot of people  who can help you if you can't  read or write as well as you'd  like to.  Some of my favourite childhood memories were reading all  the Nancy Drew books available  and spending summer days silting in our big cherry tree in the  back yard reading a book. I  would do it by the hour, and  then move to the suncot and al-  lach an umbrella to the back of  the cot so it would be shaded  enough to read.  And Ihe animal stories. How  they could make me cry over  every animal that was hurt, captured or treated cruelly.  To see now my children avidly reading and loving, laughing  or crying over some story makes  me think back, and makes me  feel good about I hem. They can  always pick up a book, go  quietly to a corner of the room  and enjoy being somewhere  else, being someone else, or  learning something new.  My grandfather, even though  he was a poor man, was rich in  the wealth of knowledge and  books. He raised his children  back in the early 1900's and  every nighl he used lo slokc up  his pipe, take my mother and  her sister on his knee and open a  book.  They would have their quiet,  reading lime. He would read lo  them, let them read lo him, enjoy each other's company and  also learn. Whenever Ihey were  serious, though, he would tell  some silly riddle or joke, and  make everyone laugh.  I only wish I could tell him  lhal today I have some of his  books thai he so treasured.  These are a rather slanted  American version of history,  but my grandfather being an  American thought ihey were the  greatest.  Nevertheless it was a good set  of the times, written by John  Clark Ridpalh, called Ridpath's  History of the World, published  in 1913 in Cincinnati. He read  these volumes cover to cover  many times.  My grandmother made one  unintentional mistake with these  volumes, though, by trying to  preserve them wilh a plastic lining as a jacket cover.  When I finally got my hands  on them a few years ago, I immediately took off the plastic  jackets and found that the  beautiful leather binding with  the gold leaf lettering had of  course, absorbed moisture and  couldn't breath as leather  should. The sides of some of the  volumes fell away like dried  leaves in my hands.  Maybe I or one of my  children will be able to have  them rebound someday. I just  hope that they and theirs can  enjoy these old volumes and  many other classics so they too  will think of books as 'Silent  Friends'.

This is what I found out when we were all in Sechelt this  week.  Chicken is one of those foods that no one can resist and the  Chicken Shack knows how to cook it up especially fine. This  helps when your family is as picky as mine.  I, myself like to order a little extra and have some cold for  lunch the next day (If I'm lucky enough to have some left  over).  This time I wasn't so fortunate and it was so good that my  kids couldn't resist finishing off that little extra I ordered.

It must  be a Valentine's Spiel. Thirty-  two rinks are entered in this  year's spiel and it got off to a  very good start on Friday.  Curling by any standard is a  very fascinating game because it  demands co-ordination and  concentration to execute every  shot. It also takes a lot of competitive stamina lo dance away  the early hours of the evening  and then go out and curl from  One to three in the morning (or  maybe it is a little stupidity).  Although top level curling  has become very competitive,  our club spiel is competitive  enough for most of us and we  enjoy the level of competition  provided by the outside rinks  who cause us to rise a little  beyond ourselves.  We certainly have seen some  very good, closely fought  games. We will do our best to  make this the very best spiel  ever so lhat all our visitors will  wish to return another year.  Again, lots of club members  to thank for their volunteer activities at the club. Special  thanks have to go to Terry and  Marie Conner this time because  they have both taken on very  large tasks.  Marie is co-ordinating the kitchen help and Terry is coordinating the bar. Many others  are willingly helping out designing draws, cleaning ice and  volunteering their services for  the kitchen or bar.  Chopper is responsible for  the supper Saturday night so a  special thanks also goes to him.  We also want to thank a very  able executive who lead us  throughout the season. It is nice  to see a few oldtime faces  around the club this season. Hi  Gus and Verda, Cec, Bernice,  Pat and Pearl.  Next week we will let you  know who the bonspiel winners  were. We hope our local rinks  take home the lions share of the  prizes. We like those outside  rinks to come, but we do like to  beat them.

So the obvious  way to reduce spiralling  insurance costs is to improve  our drivers. The 1991 model  should be smarter, safer and  less expensive to insure1.  In 1981, ICBC set up  a traffic safety education  program that has become a  standard for similar programs  throughout North America.  We work with groups from  many fields in even part of  the province - the school  system, police, health care,  industrial and community  organizations.  Our field staff uses  programs to encourage  children from elementary  schools to "buckle up" and  they in turn educate their  parents. Older students  produce their own videos  on what can happen to teens  who drink and drive; they  also organize CounterAttack  Clubs and events. In addition,  we sponsor regional and  provincial youth leadership  conferences and encourage  youngsters to create and  promote their own safety  campaigns.  Our objective in all this  has been stated very clearly  by ICBC's president, Tom  Holmes: "...to eventually  produce a safer generation of  drivers who will not tolerate  the destructive driving habits  of their parents' generation."  ���ICBC  Together, we can drive  insurance costs down.  ., Announcing  the new,  improved  1991driver.

Intense silvaculture of previously  logged areas by knowledgable  and responsible local owners  should be the predominate  forest management unit.  Mr. Bill Wright's comments  on the gutting of the Provincial  Forest Service are also pertinent.  Unfortunately Mr. Wright  senior's remarks in a column in  the Vancouver Sun in December  cast a very black cloud on the  whole situation. Rarely have I  read as short-sighted a statement by someone so obviously  well intentioned as the following:  "Given 60 or 70 more years  to do the job, (the forest industry) will clear away the remaining static or declining old  forests to make way for  dynamic new second growth  stands. There will be a great increase in the timber harvest.  "Full development and utilization of the old forest will  open it up to ihe practise of  silvaculture. It will make room  for new parks and ecological  Personal appeal  Editor:  This is a very personal appeal  from a very disappointed and  frustrated mother and father.  We have a little lu-year-old girl  whom we cherish who weighs 65  pounds and stands three feel 10  inches.  Our sweet child came home  from school yesterday, January  25 with a white envelope clutched to her chest sobbing, I've  been kicked off the bus because  there are too many new children  in our area, so all the Grades 5,  6 and 7 have lo walk from now  on.  And sure enough there it was  in black and white as of Monday, January 29, (lots of notice)  that is what the dreaded white  envelope said.  Now don't gel me wrong. 1  understand the fiscal point of  view, however try explaining  that to a group of 10-year-olds  that we don't have enough  money to drive you to school  anymore. You are big enough  to walk.  But then again I ojon't know  about you people, bul me, I will  never be big enough lo walk  from Franklin Road (our  residence) up lhal lovely lillle  hill with all that scenic traffic in  rain, sleet, hail and even hot  sunshine, five days a week.  Plus the fact it would take  another one and a half hours  Feeding  fowl  Editor:  When down al Gibsons  Marina, I have noliced kind  folk feeding the ducks and  domestic geese which slay in the  sheltered waters of our harbour.  I would mention, however,  that bread has very little nutritional value to birds and in time  they may suffer from a  malnutrition problem and  ultimately starvation.  In the cold winter months,  when food is scarce, I would appeal to you to buy either wheal  or hen scratch to feed the ducks,  geese and pigeons. A large 20  kilogram bag from the feed  store costs around seven dollars  and will last for weeks.  It is wonderful we have so  many caring people who look  after the needs of wild creatures  in the winter and, wilh the proper diel, we can look forward  once again to the antics of dabbling ducks and ducklings in the  summer months ahead.  For those of you who  wondered what happened to the  white goose which appeared lo  have injured one of its legs, and  'disappeared' some months  ago, we have been trying, with  ihe help of two veterinarians, lo  cure the goose of a deep-rooted  foot infection,  Over the last couple of months his condition has improved  and if this continues hopefully  he will be able to return to his  Hock in the Spring.

This is lo correct a false statement made regarding Business  Licence No. 156 (Sechelt) in a  last minute attempt trying to  prove conflict of inleresl to stop  Rosalene Ayres from running  for president.  No. 156 was staled as being  Rosalene's business licence  whereas it is business licence of  Allan J. Ayres al his own place  of residence.  Rosalene Ayres' business  licence No. 522 (Sechell) is for  grooming and clipping al her  own place of residence on  Norwest Bay Road and does not  prove conflict of interest.  Allan J.

Plus she, her Dad and myself  are striving to find out why  every other Grade 5 student in  Ihe school district still has bus  service available lo ihem.  So in our quest for answers  we as parents will do our best to  wade our way through the  bureaucracy and red tape, but  at this point we are two, I think,  of very many disappointed  parents at the lack of Com-  monsense, Courtesy, and Care  (lhal has been so strongly stressed by Gibsons Elementary this  year) exhibited in this decision  made by Secretary Treasurer for  our district.

My English grandfather,  Thomas Tansey, was one of the  contractors who organized the  laying of the rails. My father  was a conductor. It has served  the people well in all those years  but now Brian Mulroney's  government plans to do away  with it and all other small  railways of its kind across  Canada.  This has made a great many  people unhappy. The people of  our coast, however, have protested so effectively that my  grandfather's train, (he E and  N, is still running.  These railways no longer  burn coal as ihey used to do bul  use diesel oil as a fuel which is  nol harmful to the environment. A ride on a train is much  more convenient than on a bus.  A train has a dining car where  passengers can have meals and  is an attraction for tourists.  The task force set up by the  New Democratic Party is concerned about the build-up of  'greenhouse gas' over our country. This condition is caused by  the burning of fossil fuels such  as coal, heating oil and gasoline.  Canada and the US have five  per cent of the world's population, yet their combined consumption of fossil fuels is 25 per  cent of world usage. Our country and the US are equally at  fault.  Through the destruction of  the forests and the burning of  fossil fuels large quantities of  carbon dioxide are released into  the atmosphere, causing the  'greenhouse effect'.  Apparently, a new technology has been developed which  relies partly upon the recycling  of carbon already in the earth's  surface. This can be combined  with a form of alcohol made  from farm crops as the result is  elhanol.

Dear Mr. Reynolds:  Thank you for attending our  public meeting on December 17.  Your presence and the tremendous public response demonstrated the urgency we all feel  about this issue. We would like  to respond to some of your  comments and make some  recommendations.  Your answer lo a number of  people who demanded an end to  illegal pollution from our pulp  mills was thai "we cannot make  changes overnight." We  understand this. We also  understand lhat the changes  necessary to convert to environmentally safe methods will  require careful planning and  major construction.  At the same time there are  some changes and commitments  thai your ministry could institute now. These changes, if  undertaken, would accomplish  two things. First they would  significantly reduce the amount  of pollution entering the water  and poisoning our seafood.  Second, they would clearly  and publicly demonstrate your  government's commitment lo  the type of changes that virtually all workers, environmentalists, fishermen and the  general public are demanding.  These principles need no further discussion. You yourself  have already recognized the importance of several of these  points.  I,  Mills  must  immediately  a/5  SendaUNICEFcard,  Save a child's life.  unicef  OH c*i toJMrt* i aoc.'W irTDifjfjai.aorMi,  No one knows your  car better  C.o��*��  VEHICLE  INSPECTION  FACILITY  OPEN 6 DAYS A WEEK  SUNCOAST  MOTORS  L  T  D  ��e��*  1117 Sunshine Coasl Hwy     qqa  Q01 Q  Gibsons - near Pralt    OOO'D-C I 0  '-'Isse  restrict their output to their  designed operating level. Production above this level is inefficient and leads to much greater  amounts of pollution per ton of  product.  2. M.O.E. must notify mills  that all deals and variance  orders lo exceed permits are off.  These 'understandings' make it  more difficult to prosecute mills  who exceed their pollution permits.  3. M.O.E. must charge and  publish names of all mills exceeding permits. The law must  apply to all equally.  4. M.O.E. must commit to  goal of zero discharge of  organochlorines and other  pollutants. Anything less means  thai some level of environmental destruction is acceptable.  5. M.O.E. must commit to  government, on-site, round-the-  clock testing and full public  disclosure of results. Monitoring must be designed for the  protection of the public, not for  the convenience of Ihe pulp  mills.  6. Commitment to joint federal/provincial inquiry into the  lad; of enforcement and  monitoring of industry. We  must get to the bottom of administrative and political  obstructions to environmental  protection,  7. Moratorium on expansion  of existing mills and construction of new mills unless organo-  chlorine free technology is  employed. More investment into out-dated, polluting systems  will make it more difficult to  convert to environmentally safe  systems in the future.  Mr. Reynolds, we would appreciate if you could respond to  each of these points. The coalition accordingly invites you to  attend our next meeting on  February 6 at 9:30 am at the  United Fishermen and Allied  Workers' Union.  If you are not free on this  date, please let us know and we  will try to arrange another time.

Ill-qualified  mixed with regular gasoline and  reduce carbon dioxide emmis-  sion.  Another segment of the  energy issue which our government fails to consider, is the  conservation of what energy  resources we already have.  Hydroelectric power is clean  and does no damage to the  earth's atmosphere and plants  can be built wherever they will  not flood agricultural land or  land owned by our Native  citizens.  The NPD Task Force recommends: I. The federal government should adequately fund  research and development into  alternative energy sources such  as wind and solar power, and  such alternative fuels as  hydrogen and ethanol.  2. Energy megaprojects  should be reconsidered in the  light of research on the environmentally damaging effects  of fossil fuels.  Isabel Ralph  Editor:  The recent kerfuffle over  Mayor Strom's cryptic war on  drugs poster is an unfortunate  distraction from an important  fact: Mayor Strom is ill-  qualified to wage war on drug  abuse.  Mayor Strom has little  knowledge of drugs, a situation  reminiscent of the Vietnam war  where soldiers fought an enemy  that they often couldn't identify  in a war that they didn't understand. Innocent people were killed in the Vietnam war, and innocent people will be injured in  Mayor Strom's war on drugs.  Mayor Strom labels longhaired youths (and dissipated  women) as dangerous undesirables. She says (by not saying)  that alcohol and prescription  drug abuse is okay. She urges us  to report our friends, family,  and neighbours to Crimestop-  pers for smoking marijuana.  She makes a complete fool of  herself to those of us well-  educated in substance abuse and  pharmacology.  Mayor Strom, please, educate yourself from sources other  than the US Moral Majority.  Expand your readings to incude  authors with a broader than  'Reefer Madness' mentality.  Consult the medical profession,  law enforcement officers and  drug users.  You will learn that alcohol,  heroin, and cocaine are the top  three causes of violent crime  and death. You will learn that  diazepam (Valium and its ilk) is  one of the most commonly  abused, most addictive, and  most insidious drugs available  on or off the street.  Law enforcement officers will  tell you that they don't make  the laws,  they only enforce  them, and that most of their  problems arise directly from  alcohol and hard-drug abuse.  To quote an anonymous Vancouver staff sergeant, "Nobody  ever smokes a joint and beats up  his wife or wracks up a stolen  car or robs a senior citizen. If  everybody smoked pot instead  of doing some other stuff, our  work would be cut in half."  Drug users will tell you that  there is virtually no peer  pressure to smoke pot, unlike  the pressure to 'take a drink'.  They will tell you that marijuana does not lead to hard  drugs any more than drinking  mother's milk leads to drinking  alcohol. They will tell you that  preaching 'the evils of marijuana' to your children only  causes them to reject all other  warnings you give about drugs  when they learn (and they will)  that you are misinformed about  pot.  Mayor Strom should make  an attempt to educate herself  before she does any more  damage with her crusade of ignorance.

Pollen analysis shows that cedar  was present in the Lower  Mainland about 6600 years ago.  An archeaological site near  Pitt River produced two carved  items and baskets made of cedar  withes that were 2900 years old.  Evidence from Musqueam and  Vancouver Island sites show  that cedar was used between  3000 and 4000 years ago.  Campers  Motorhomes  Woodworking tools for the  north coast Indians included  mauls (hammers and wedges)  used to split cedar logs into  planks. The adze was used as a  splitter or a chisel for smaller  woodworking.  Through their work with  cedar over thousands of years,  the north coast Indians devised  technologies for felling and  transporting cedar trees, splitting and cutting planks and  joining pieces of wood together.  They could also steam and bend  the wood and patch and repair  LET'S TALK  MONEY  Lei's gel together and sell  your RV unit II we can l sell  it we'll buy it.

One of the methods used to  fell a large cedar combined  chiselling with burning. After  using adzes to chisel a cavity in  the tree the feller placed hot  rocks in the hollow. This  created Tires which were carefully controlled by wet hemlock  branches and wet clay on the  trunk.  The resulting charcoal made  further chiselling easier. It was a  slow and tedious process to fell  the trees, generally taking three  fellers a period of two to three  Bed 8.  BriMktast  days.  Skidding out the log took approximately 200 men, 60 pulling  ropes around the logs while  others pushed from the opposite  side. Other men used poles to  lift and propel the log forward  towards water.  Besides using cedar for constructing their homes, the Indians used the cedar in every  part of their lives. They made  drums for communication by  steaming the frame around a  round rock and stretching hide  across it.  They made huge and small  canoes from the cedar, some  suitable for whaling. Cedar  boxes were made for a variety  of uses....to store ceremonial  regalia, to carry water or to  store foodstuffs.  The method to make these  boxes is called 'steambent  wood', where a single plank of  wood was bent to form the four  sides. There are also records of  specially designed fishing tackle  boxes that fit into the bow of  the canoe.  Besides the wood of the  cedar, other parts of the tree  were used extensively. The bark  was made into baskets, ropes,  cords, clothing and even waterproof hats. The slender branches were used for lashing,  ropes and cords, and fishing.  Today cedar is still used by  many people for furniture,  shingles, fences, etc. and a  result is an extremely valuable  species. For all these reasons it's  easy to see why the Western Red  Cedar is BC's official tree.  OUTBOARDS FOR SALE  9.9-20-30-40-50-70 HP  1988-1989 Evinces. Excellent  condition. Lowes Resort.  883-2456.

Coast News, January 29,1990  t-  No easy life  Trials of itinerant teacher  by Rose Nichotson  A group of Grades 5,6 and 7  Elementary French as a Second  Language (EI-SL) students  demonstrated their French  speaking (and singing) skills for  trustees at the January 23  meeting of the school board.  Nancy Brindley, Itinerant  French teacher for School  District 46, told trustees she  teaches three 30-minute French  classes to Grades 4, 5 and 6  students in three elementary  schools every week and provides  backup support to French  teachers in other schools.  Brindley concentrates on  teaching the students to speak,  to listen to and understand  French, with some introduction  to reading and writing skills.  A combination of activities  include conversation, games  and singing help the students to  feel comfortable with the  language.  "They can introduce themselves, ask directions or order in  a restaurant," said Brindley.  "Most of the writing and  reading skills are not taught until the high school level."  Brindley said the resource  materials, like textbooks, tapes.  videos and flashcards that are  available in the district are excellent, "but a little outdated so  not as interesting as they might  be.

Election day is slated  for February 12 and, if a poll is  necessary, polling day will be on  March 3, 1990.  In his letter of resignation,  Shaske said he had chosen  January 22 as his resignation  date because restructuring is no  longer an issue.  "My business and personal  commitments are demanding  more time than they have  previously," Shaske who has  been on the board seven years,  states in his letter, "I can no  longer dedicate the amount of  time I believe is necessary to  properly represent the residents  of Area F and perform the  duties of a regional director."  Susan Fitchell has been sitting  in on the board for Director  Shaske for several months now  but told the Coasl News she  hasn't yet decided if she will run  for the now-vacated position.  The problems with the  Creekside Package Treatment  Plant for sewage began "15  years ago when a permit was  given on unsuitable land," Area  E Director Jim Gurney told the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board last  week. The recent problems are  because it was a bad situation  waiting to happen, he said.  "Bad soils and high water levels  should have been evident 15  years ago."

The issue of the plant arose at  the Sechelt Council meeting of  January 17 when Mayor Tom  Meredith said council was not  given "the whole story" when it  agreed recently to take over the  sewage distribution system and  package treatment plans from  the SCRD.  "To set the record straight,"  Gurney told the board, "the  problems are not because the  regional district has been sloppy."  He stressed that the SCRD  has been open with Ihe District  of Sechelt and has shared, and  will continue to share, every  piece of information on the  plant it has.  Alderman Wilson said he was  pleased to hear of the SCRD's  offer of co-operation because of  the potential health hazard of  the plant.  �� "The public works people  will be able to have an ongoing  liaison to solve the problems,"  he said.
