 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V1X4 '  182.1  -    Victoria  The Sunshine  Delivered to every address on the Coast  April 28, 1981  Volume 35, Number 17  Dogs go on rampage  ��� M.M. Joe photo.  Stark evidence of the depredations of dots b available at the home of Mrs. Spence on Pratt Road in these slaughtered sheep. (See  accompanying story)  Lee and Stelck concerned  New by-law needed  for Joint Facility  Despite some misgivings expressed by Sechelt Representatives  Brian Stelck and Regional Director Charles Lee at last week's  regional board meeting, all looks well for the Joint Facility being  planned by the school and regional boards for Roberts Creek.  The misgivings of Stelck and Lee centre on the fact that a new  by-law will have to be passed to increase the borrowing power of  the regional board for the facility. The increase in borrowing  power is required because the cost of the facility has gone up in  these times of fast-rising prices from the original $360,000 to  $500,000.  On the positive side, Director Harry Almond of RobertrL'reek  pointed out that because, of increased funding available from the  school board the money that must be raised by Roberts Cre��>  residents by specified area funding is going down.  During Thursday night's meeting Director Joe Harrison  queried the good faith of Stelck and Lee in taking the matter of the  by-law change up with the Municipal Affairs Department in  Victoria.  Obviously angered, Director Lee told Harrison that he took  exception to the remark.  "I wish you had been as assiduous in your own area," said Lee  "instead of dumping your problems in my lap."  Chairman David Hunter poured some oil on the troubled water  by thanking Director Lee for a 'difficult Job well done' but when  Harrison moved three readings of the new by-law the director for  Area C recorded a negative vote.  Bears no reason  Mr. and Mrs. Hutchings of Sandy Hook came to the  School Board meeting to request an extension of the bus  route for eight children in their area���some of whom live  more than a mile from the bus stop.  Trustees made if clear lhat they do not consider the  presence of bears in the area justification for extending a bus  run at considerable expense to taxpayers and making it  necessary for other students to leave home early. Parents  who choose to live in outlying areas must take bears as a fact  of life and be prepared to look after their children  accordingly.  But in this case Trustees agreed���with one negative vote,  to an extension of the route due to the number of children  involved, one being of kindergarten age, and the obvious  rale of growth and new houses in the area.  Money - at last  The prolonged struggle of Pender Aquatic Society to  achieve financial support for the operation of their  swimming pool came to an end at the regional board  meeting last week.  Regional directors voted to allow the Aquatic Society  SH.000 from the Joint Facility Fund with which to effect the  purchase of cost-saving equipment for the pool.  Aquatic Society President Shirley Vader told the Coast  News: "We are very, very happy and are at work right now  getting things going."  No foreshore lease  The application for a foreshore lease in Roberts Creek  made by T. D. Bulger has been denied, according to a letter  from Larry Sorken, District Land Manager for Vancouver  District to the SCRD under date of April 13.  The application apparently sought a buoy for moorage  and a foreshore lease to ensure privacy and neither Sorken  nor the SCRD saw any difficulty with the application for a  buoy but found that alienation of the public foreshore for  privacy' was not acceptable.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons and SCRD Chairman  David Hunter sign the agreement on the route for the Gibsons bypass at last week's regional board meeting  Economy move  Police move  to Sechelt  Mayor Lorraine Goddard reported at the Gibsons Council  meeting, April 21, that she had met with Superintendent Maidens  of Division '[)' and Sergeant Bohn and McDermitt and that  Gibsons RCMP administration will function from Sechelt on a  six-month trial basis commencing May I.  Mayor Goddard said that it was indicated at that meeting that  the program would be carefully monitored and if a decline in the  level of service to Gibsons became evident the local  administration would revert back to the Gibsons office.  At the Sunshine Coast Detachment in Sechelt, as it will be  called. Staff Sergeant Don McDermitt told the Coast News the  move was primarily for efficiency.  "Moving the administration from Gibsons to Sechelt means  there will be only one administration function on the Coast. Not  only will this cut costs, the move will also free manpower that is  currently being utilized in administration for patrol work," he  said.  Staff Sergeant McDermitt also informed the Coast News that  the Gibsons office would remain operational, meaning that  interviews would be conducted from the office and intoxicated  persons would be lodged there. Breathalizer testing and  fingerprinting would also continue.  Emergency calls from Gibsons will be answered in Sechelt and  the necessary action taken from there.  "The public is reminded," said McDermitt, "that this method is  on a trial basis for six months and in event of failure it will revert  back to the original method. We do not expect this to be the case  as it is a well-thought out move. Service will be as good if not  better than what residents are accustomed to especially in the  outlying regions."  The Pender Harbour area will be one of the areas to expect  better service from the RCMP.  by Fran Bourassa  Australia is plagued with rabbits, England with rats, Italy with  cats and India with cows.  Closer to home the Sunshine Coast is being overrun by dogs.  Dogs are loose everywhere. They are reported to be killing  livestock and wildlife. They are attacking people, are a haiard to  motorists and a nuisance to many.  Four sheep, 23 chickens, and one rabbit are dead this week as a  result ofthe dog problem that is reaching climactic proportions on  the Sunshine Coast.  One dog in particular, the animal suspected of killing all ofthe  above livestock, has Gibsons RCMP worried that small children  might next fall victim. The dog is described as a brown German  Shepherd with black markings on its back. RCMPare asking that  anyone seeing this animal report immediately to them.  Mrs. Spence, who lives just outside the Gibsons village  boundaries told the Coast News that her two sheep were killed on  Wednesday and the next night the same dog came back and killed  a rabbit.  "We had those sheep for 9 years. They were more pets than  anything,"- she said. "I've heard of other people around this area  With similar problems," she told the Coast News. "A neighbour  Mas lost a pig and others have had attacks on their livestock."  Bob Graham, who lives on Highway 101 within the Village of  Gibsons, lost two sheep and 23 chickens this week. This is the third  attack on his livestock by dogs.  ��� In an investigation by the Coast News into the dog problem a  conservation officer, the RCMP, aldermen and regional board  directors as well as the SPCA were interviewed and all admitted  that the lack of dog control on the Coast was causing serious  problems.  Conservation Officer Jamie Stephen said the problem was  acute, especially in the rural areas.  1 "In the past two months I've received 20 complaints of dogs  chasing livestock and wildlife. And that is only the reported  incidents."  Stephen said that he receives reports of dogs running deer and  recently killing Canada geese at Mission Point, as well as  molesting livestock. The RCMP are in charge of the livestock  reports. The government reimburses the owner for the cost of the  destroyed animals.  ij One RCMP officer explained to the Coast News that legislation  drily permits action to be taken if the attacking animal is caught in  the act. j  "Otherwise our hands are tied, all we can do is warn the owner  of the dog if we can find out who he is."  Mmee Madill, the SPCA director on the Coast, receives at  ielsfteW calls a day; relating to dog cantrot-ptoblem*., i. ��� - ....  Myckee and 8 volunteers put IS animals a week through their  clinic to be spayed and offer discount prices. The SPCA believes  that spaying is the major way of keeping the dog and cat problems  under control.  "We've got more than we can handle all the time as well as poor  facilities to work in and no funding other than what we can raise  ourselves. Right now we have 40 animals in the kennels and more  calls than we know what we can do with. Too few people and too  little funding is our biggest problem."  "We have recently asked the regional board to help us with  funding and are hopeful that we will eventually be able to give  adequate service," she said.  Director of Area D, Harry Almond, told the Coast News that  he is in favour ofthe SPCA maintaining limited dog control for  the region.  "There is no doubt that we are having serious problems," he  said.  Director of Area C, Charles Lee, feels that dog control is the  responsibility of the dog owners. "If a dog is found loose it should  be picked up and the owner fined. No matter how you look at it  the responsibility falls upon the owner. We need regulations and  we need to put some teeth into them."  Brian Stelck, Finance Chairman for both the regional board  and the Sechelt council seems to be the man with the answers. He  told the Coast News that steps are being taken to achieve effective  dog control on the Coast.  As a result of the April 9 regional board meeting that included a  delegation Irom the SPCA, a letter has been sent to the Provincial  SPCA Association asking for their guidelines, regulations and bylaws. The possibility of having such a function on the Coast b in  the works.  Stelck said that if all goes well and the idea is accepted by the  board, the SPCA will become a regional operation. A  management agreement similar to that signed by the Pender  Aquatic Society would be drawn up. The local SPCA authority  would issue licences, collect the funds, and run the facility as an  organization hired by the regional board.  "No matter what," said Stelck, "we want to support the SPCA.  This matter of dog control should have been looked into long ago.  We are now in need of such control."  A question of direction  Sechelt sewer  dispute  Resolution of a dispute between the village of Sechelt and the  Regional Board will be sought at a special meeting to be held in  the Sechelt Municipal Office on Thursday, April 30.  At issue is the future development of the village and the  disposition of sewage attendant upon that development.  According to Alderman Brian Stelck of Sechelt, the Sechelt  Village Planner John Northey believes that the progress of the  village should be determined by the village rather than the  engineers of the sewage system, Dayton and Knight.  Stelck told the Coast News that the long-standing problem in  the village at the foot of Binnacle Street could be resolved if a  pump was installed in conjunction with other developments  planned in the vicinity.  Dayton and Knight, the engineers who designed the Sechelt  sewage system, are reported to believe that the installation of a  pump system would be a waste of time and a nuisance that  eventually would have to be eliminated. Dayton and Knight  apparently feel that decisions made now should be decisions  which are right in the long term.  The meeting to be held in the Sechelt Village boardroom on  Thursday will be the first of regularly scheduled Regional Board  meetings to be held there. Regional Board meetings will be held in  the village office because the growth of regional staff necessitates  turning the present board room into offices.  Representatives of the village of Sechelt will be invited to  , Thursday's special regional board meeting to discuss the question  of Sechelt sewage with the regional board and representatives of  Dayton and Knight.

Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Production Department:  Pat Tripp  Nancy Conway  Sham R Sohn  Lyn Fabio  Circulation  Michael No2inski  Dogs cause difficulties  in a featured story on the front page  this week and in a letter to the editor we  learn of the havoc created by dogs both to  garden^ and to livestock. It is evident that  considerable financial loss and heartache  is being caused to residents of the Sunshine Coast by untrained and unrestrained dogs. In some cases what is  being  caused  is  actual  bodily  harm.  Some clear statements must be made.  A dog is a creature with killing jaws and  anyone owning a dog of any size whatsoever must realize that the animal he  has chosen to harbour is capable of  causing immense damage. A dog must be  exercised regularly and extensively or it  will start travelling alone or, worse yet,  running in packs. Too many people move  to a place like the Sunshine Coast from  the city and without knowing a thing  about dogs or bothering to learn anything  they decide that now they can have a dog.  It is also true that some of the most  popular breeds for the beginning dog-  owner, such as Dobermann Pinschers and  German Shepherds are dogs which need  strong control and vigilant supervision  because they are breeds that for generations  have been bred to violence.  Owning a dog can be a great pleasure  but it must also be seen as a privilege  which carries with it grave responsibilities. No dog owner has the right to  harbour an animal which destroys his  neighbour's property or threatens his  safety.  Any dog which inflicts injury on anyone  other than a burglar in his own home  should be destroyed without quibbling  and without hesitation. Any dog which  kills livestock should be destroyed  immediately because once the taste of  fresh blood has been acquired and the  thrill of the kill it is sure that the animal  will kill again.  What can be done? In the first place it  is time that the local governing bodies  stopped shilly-shallying and provided the  SPCA with immediate financial support  so that their long term work in controlling  the canine population by subsidized  spaying can be carried vigorously on.  The real difficulties lie, of course, with  irresponsible owners and it is not immediately clear what can be done with  them. Perhaps obedience clinics should  be mandatory with a temporary licence  issued only for a year at which time the  dog and its owner would either pass a  training test or the dog would be destroyed. In the case of livestock killers the  first offence should be the last. If present  laws don't permit the putting down of  offending canines those laws should be  changed.  Reassurance  At last those of us who felt that the      supremacy of God.  arrogance of our present Prime Minister  was boundless have been reassured. A  story in last Wednesday's Vancouver  Province informed that the new constitutional package will acknowledge the  With this unexpected evidence of  humility on the part of Mr. Trudeau  we can go forward with new optimism  into the Canadian future.  .from the diet of the COAST NEWS  f\ l$?ftepfe��Iia |  FIVE YEARS AQO  D.R. Hehn, Regional Land Manager, has ordered the Village of  Sechelt to cease dumping rocks  below the high water mark on  Sechelt beach.  Larry Sorken, District Land Manager has contradicted local claims  that the marina now being built In  Porpoise Bay by Len Van Egmond  would cause environmental damage  in the area.  The Sunshine Coast has now  received 3000 of the 2.6 million trees  originally purchased by the Barrett  government for use In connection  with Habitat.

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AQO  The Union Store at Sechelt Is  closing. An active'business In the  name of Union Steamships and  latterly the Union Red & White store,  it has been Sechelt's shopping centre  for many years. Union bought it in  1920 from former owners, the Wh I takers. The original store is reported  to have been built In 1690 or thereabouts.  Prompt action by men from Gibsons saved Keats Island from serious  fire on Sunday shortly after noon  when a spark from a brush fire set a  six-room building afire, not far from  the wharf.  THIRTY YEARS AQO  Death failed to claim the life of  A.E. Rltchey, when his truck and  tractor loaded trailer crashed through  the 21-year old bridge on the Sechelt  highway and came to rest in water  30 feet below.  James Sinclair M.P. and practically  every organization on the Coast has  fought for the permission, that has  been granted to Gibsons, to have the  Black Ball Ferry dock at the government Wharf.  THIRTY FIVE YEARS AQO  The Easter church parade turned  into a fire-fighting squad as friends  and neighbours tried to save the  home of John Holden, an 81-year old  pioneer of Roberts Creek. Despite the  valiant efforts of all, the house was  completely gutted.  Buster Anderson, a taxi driver foi*  Lome Fee's taxi, interrupted a drama  of the forest on a call to Lund last  Saturday. He came upon a cougar  attacking a deer on the road and  broke up the encounter when he  was unable to stop his car. Both  animals fled to the woods and the  car was slightly damaged.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  iw  The item was on Page,  Nine of the nine-page mimeographed newsheet that is  called Klondike Korner. It  comes to me from Dawson  City every month and every  month I scour its contents  for news of people I knew and  people I taught during my  stint in Dawson City in the  mid-sixties.  The item read: "Brady ���  Word has been received of the  death of Peter Brady in  Whitehorse on Wednesday.  Colourful Hunker Creek Miner  Pete and his brother Pat were  well-known Dawsonites since  the late '20's. Pete mined as  late as the 1970's before retiring to MacCauley Lodge in  Whitehorse."  I spent three years in that  awesome country in the northwest corner of Canada and fell  in love with its clear grandeur.  I made friends there who  remain among the most  valued of my relationships.  But I think my most treasured  recollections are of the hours  spent with the eccentric and  individualistic, the fiercely  independent, veteran miners  of the Klondike.  I would visit them in their  cabins far from town or in that  wing of St. Mary's Hospital at  the junction of the Yukon and  Klondike Rivers which was  designated in the mid-sixties  as the place to which very old  men retired when they could  no longer live their fiercely  independent lives in solitude.  During my time in the  Klondike the last of the men  who had made their way into  that forbidding land when the  gold rush was at its height  before the turn of the century  were coming to the end of  their long and eventful lives.  They are all gone now:  Old Tom Walsh, a veteran of  the Spanish-American War  and the Alaskan and Klondike  Gold Rushes and the First  World War. At the age of  almost ninety Tom's feet were  bad and rather than leave his  cabin he chose his time to die,  independent to the end. Black  Mike Winic, who claimed to  have walked to the Klondike  from Yugoslavia across Siberia and who died last year at  an estimated one hundred and  seven years of age. Quiet Tom  Hcbcrt had been a Mountie in  the north and a dog-musher  and God knows what else  besides. Giant old John  Corbeau at the age of ninety-  five lying on his last bed had  me convinced after a visit that  he really did know where the  long-sought Mother Lode was  to be found and that this  summer, by God, he and I  would find it. There was  courtly old Teddy Watch, the  Austrian lady-charmer. Somewhere 1 have a picture of  Teddy at ninety with a glass  of gin in each hand and a  pretty girl hanging on each  arm. Bert Barber, the old  vaudevillian who offered to  sell me an escape trick that  even Houdini hadn't known  about.  These and many more were  part of the fading tapestry of  Dawson City while I was  teaching school there.  Pete Brady had come to the  Klondike a little later and he  was probably the last of the  old men that I knew there and  Ihe item from the Klondike  Korner somehow closes finally  a treasured chapter of my life.  Pete was from County Cork  in southern Ireland and if ever  a man deserved to be described as being as Irish as the  pigs of Dublin it was surely  Peter Brady. I never met his  brother Pat who was some ten  years older than Pete and  gone before I arrived in the  Klondike country. They were,  by all accounts - and knowing  Pete I could well believe it,  as hard-drinking, hard-working, often-repentant a pair of  Irish rascals as ever drew  breath.  One of the first epic tales of  the Brady brothers I encountered upon my arrival in  the Klondike involved an  evening in the old Occidental  Hotel when the brothers, Pat  well into his seventies and  Pete approaching three score  and ten, decided to settle their  differences with  their  fists.  The skirmish was brief  with Pete, the younger,  prevailing. The story goes that  the exchange came to an end  with Pete sitting astride his  brother's chest with a firm  grip of each of his ears by  which means he was pounding  his brother's head on the  floor.  "Now will you be good,  Pat? Now will you be good?"  demanded Peter, emphasizing each repeated question  with another application of  Pat's head to the barroom  floor.  The most epic of the tales  involving the Brady brothers  was told to me as true and I  pass it on with the observation  that while it seems almost too  good to be true, it is said to be  true and, again from my  knowledge of Pete, it could  well be true.  Pete and Pat were working  on their mining claim on  Hunker Creek, Pete down the  shaft shovelling ore into the  bucket and Pat winching it to  the surface. Throughout the  long working hours of the  Klondike summer time the  two were bickering and  quarrelling. Finally their disagreement reached the point  where Pete could endure no  more and decided to take the  physical route to solution. He  came raging up the ladder  from Ihe bottom of the shaft to  have it out once and for all  with his brother for the  millionth time.  Pat was both cautious and  prepared, however, and as  Pete's head emerged from the  mine shaft he let him have it  with a nearby shovel.  When he surveyed his  brother's prostrate form  crumpled over the lop of the  ladder in the mineshaft  Pat was struck with great  remorse. He raced the half-  mile down the creek to the  neighbouring miner.  "Glory be to God, I've  killed me only brother. Come  quick, he's lying stone dead.  I've killed me only brother."  Amid much lamentation and  in great haste the neighbour  and Pat returned to the scene  of the crime where the unfortunate Pete Brady was just  beginning to groan, stir, and  recover.  "Be Jasus," said Pat,  "You're not dead I" And,  picking up the shovel, he hit  him again.  This much is the colourful  hearsay of the Klondike.  Next week we'll get to the  Pete Brady that I knew,  including the story of Pete  Brady and Count John McCor-  mack.  Slings & Arrows >%  George Matthews  ?|  The key to the effective  operation of any organization  is leadership. Whether we like  it or not, no matter how  dedicated we are to the  principles of participatory  democracy and despite the  fact that the past decade has  tended fo give leadership a  bad name, without it, the  organization will collapse into  wandering, aimless and destructive chaos.  The primacy of the command function holds true  whether we are talking about a  family, a football team or  General Motors. And it is  certainly no less true, and  perhaps moreso, in the newspaper business. Perhaps the  best demonstration ofa failure  in leadership in the newspaper  business is the recent case of  reporter Janet Cooke and the  Washington Post. The editorial department of the Post,  in a clear command position as  far as the content of the newspaper is concerned failed  miserably to exert its command authority in this case.  As a result, a plausible, but  manufactured story of an eight  year old heroin addict made  headlines as fact and won its  author brief acclaim as a  Pulitzer Prize winner. When  the story proved to be more  fiction than fact, its author  was fired, a very prestigious  newspaper was embarrassed,  and the editorial department  stumbled and fumbled over  itself to concoct elaborate  excuses ofthe need to "trust"  reporters.  Few will deny the need to  give reporters, as semi-  autonomous subordinates, a  high degree of trust and  decision making power. And  only the naive would ilaim  that the editorial department  of the Post entered into a  conspiracy to fabricate a  sensational story. Rather what  happened in the case of the  Washington Post, as with  many other bureaucratic  structures, the leadership  made the fatal error of equating the delegation of authority, in this case to an  enterprising reporter, with the  loss of its own authority. In  other words, the Post's  leaders simply denied the  existence or potency of its own  influence to the point where a  reporter took command of her  own destiny while ignoring the  power of her editors.  Under the circumstances of  high visibility for sensationalizing stories, a leadership that  deserted its command, and  the possibility of winning a  prize that would establish a  career for a lifetime, Ms.  Cooke's actions were not  entirely unexpected.  The leadership factor contains two critical, though abstract and transitory components. The first is that it is  entirely illusory. As Kelly, the  organizational theorist wrote:  "The most important thing to  know about organizations is-;  that they do not exist - except-  in   peoples'   minds."    The .  implication for leadership in  this statement is clearly that,'  leadership   does   not   exist.'  except in the minds of the.'  followers.   If   that    sacred,  illusory connection  between ���  editor and reporter is denied,.'  as it was in the apparent case,  of the Washington Post, then  the results  are  predictable.'  The  leaders'  power  to   in  fluence     subordinates       is  shattered.  The  second  critical  component of leadership is power.,  ( or influence, whichever you.*  prefer).     Leadership     must  clearly demonstrate its ability  to get subordinates to carry  out its will despite resistance;  or timidity. In the Post's case '  this will was either not made  clear (do not write fiction on'  the front page) or the editorial'  leadership   was   unable   to '  impose its will on a subordin-'';  ate.  The inability of the editors '  of the Washington  Post td '  impose their will, demonstrates a flaw in thinking all too  common in the  modern or' '���  ganization. This flaw  stems  from a belief that power is/  a finite resource, that once  shared or delegated its poten-"���:  cy is lost. This belief results  from  the  false   notion   thatj  power is real  and  tangible  rather    than    illusory    and;  infinite. \  In effective organizations,...  everyone   possesses   powers.,  power to act, power to decide,-,  power to move productively,.-  Within his or her sphere, the  leader has power of decision,  within   their   spheres,    thei-  subordinates    have    power.:  Within the effective organization the power to achieve'  ends is massive. Within the.  ineffective organization, pow-r i  er is debased until it withers. -  away. ' -I'  Had the Post had an effective  leadership,  Ms.  Cooke'  would not and could not engage in an act which was  unproductive to the organization.   Because   the    Post  leadership  handed  over  its  power to influence reporters, :���  the enterprising reporter took:  the ball and ran with it.  Good leadership,  whether  in the family, on the playing  field, in the work place or in;  the government,  is a  very'  precious commodity. If your'  leader is truly effective, you,  as family member, player or ���  worker will have more power, -  more influence, more freedom.'  to choose and a great deal,  more satisfaction.

Branches galloping  in the wind, I rode over Leo's place  the plum tree cow mooing  in his perfect lawn.  Wind blew petrol into the air from  diesel engines and riversheds of  Northwest Rait. Nostrils burned. I  whipped the beast. A herd of wild  horses broke from the mane, leaped  clapboard houses, chased through  the alleys down the slope, over the  stone walls of Dr. Bollards  cattlehouse and the iron gantries  of West Coast Steel. From horse to  horse I'd climb until I found myself  clinging to the leader nose,  breathing down, rearward over the  smoke-blazed industrial range.  Nirmal Sidhu  ���.:  I I  mmm Coast News.

My apologies go out to Mrs.  Bishop for being the cause  of her 'most disgusting  moment in life'!  I am only sorry that Mrs.  Bishop did not read the  original article as published in  the Vancouver Province on  January 12th. I hope she  would agree that 1 had at least  made an attempt to 'clean up  the act' by deleting words  she would certainty have  found offensive.

She asked, "Did you know  that a male contraceptive was  on the market in pill form?"  Dogs and garden damage  Editor:  Almost everyone has a  special hobby or hobbies  which they pursue with  various degrees of enthusiasm. My main hobby is that  of gardening and I spend  hours every day all year round  on some form of gardening.  I'm trying to change a much  neglected piece of property  into a colourful and appealing  garden.  It isn't easy and it takes  lots of time and hard work.  There were so many plants  needed to do a proper job that  I've been growing permanent  perennials from seeds. Nur  turing these seeds, then  seedlings, along for a year,  some a year and a half before  they flower, daily checking for  proper moisture, light and  slugs, bugs, April snows, high  winds etc. etc.  I have been successful in  tackling these things. There is  one major problem which  remains - the problem of dog  owners who allow their dogs  to run loose and damage  other's property.  During the past two weeks I  have had a number of Lupin  and Delphinium plants completely destroyed by dogs  trampling and digging in the  BCRIC draws opposition  Editor:  With the donation of the  balance of the Crown-owned  shares to the Terry Fox  Medical Research Foundation,  Ihe cost of the BCRIC scheme  can now be calculated.  The book "Privatization:  Theory and Practice" by  T. Ohashi and T.P. Roth  provides some helpful figures.  As at March 15. 1979; the  Province of B.C. owned IS  million shares with a book value of $11.16 each. 10,364,035  shares were distributed as  "free" shares and 4,635,965  have been donated to the  Terry Fox Foundation.  Cost of "free" shares:  10,364,035 at $11.16 =  $115,662,630.60.  -Cost of donated shares:  4,635,965 at $11.16 =  $51,737,369.40.  "Costs"   as    per    pages  53 and 54 of' 'Privatization''=  $38,000,000.00.  "Loss" on evaluation as per  page 74 (#21) of "Privatization" = $106,500,000.00.  Total Cost of Scheme:  $311,900,000.00  In addition, British Columbians purchased 81,243,230  shares at $6.00 for a total investment of $487,359,380.  This brings the total cost to  $799,359,380. This figure is in  1979 dollars. By allowing for  interest at 12%, we arrive at  a current cost totalling  $1,002,716,406. Had this  $1 billion created new jobs,  new industry and new technology; the cost might be  justified but all BCRIC has  done is make a handful of  businessmen even richer.  It is about time that BCRIC  shareholders received some  benefits.  Protect the children  Editor:  We have all on occasion  missed the ferry that we had so  wanted lo catch, and it certainly is not a joyful experience  as the lost hours loom perhaps  too important.  . Nonetheless, the roads to the  ferry terminal cannot reflect  our impatience or lack of good  planning and become a "grown  up' a-sperado drag-strip. At 9  and 9:30 am. and again in the  afternoon, the school buses are  out and the children���if nothing else in this cosmos- must  be held sacred, should be seen  as irrational, dreamy, flighty,  full of quick movement and  energy, and incapable of defending themselves against an  onslaught of hurrying, worrying, speeding ferry traffic.  If we as individuals in a small  but growing community cannot police ourselves and our  neighbours in this matter, we  should then call upon the  RCMP lo heavily patrol these  roads especially when the  school buses are out, and to  "throw Ihe book" at anyone  who recklessly endangers our  sacred heritage.

Dog owners, I like most of  your dogs, however, I am too  old and too cranky to spend  the time training your dogs as  I have always trained my own,  to stay out of flower and  vegetable gardens.

Darcy Anne Robertson  Seaview Road, Gibsons  By using the 12% figure,  the break-even price of BCRIC  shares would be $7.50. With  the shares trading below  their original issue price of  $6.00, how can the Board of  Directors nominate themselves for re-election? In our  opinion, it is time for them to  move over and let someone  else try to put our company on  the right track. If they won't  do it gracefully, the shareholders must take matters in  their own hands. The longer  we wait, the more difficult our  task will be.  C.I.R.C.B.

Woods....  by Peter Trower  The logging-camps of British Columbia are not what  they once were. I had occasion  to observe this first hand last  summer, when my lady and  myself were invited to spend  the weekend in Clowholm  Falls, a typical operation at  the head of postcard-pretty  Salmon Inlet.  The Weldwood camp, employing about sixty men,  guards the valley-entrance  between steep, scarred mountains. It is neatly laid out on a  cleared paddock, bordered by  second-growth conifers and  thin. grey, ubiquitous alders.  The buildings, mostly trailers,  glint in aluminum ranks.  The majority of them are  bunkhouses, ultra-modern  units with one man to a room  and all the basic amenities.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  The squeaky clean cookhouse,  also in a trailer, dispenses  excellent stick-to-your-ribs  fare, cafeteria-style. We are  privileged to sample the  cook's hearty cuisine at a belt-  loosening steak and mushroom supper.  Later, my lady and I wander  around the camp. We are  intrigued by a large A-frame  structure that resembles nothing more than a church.  Some sacrilegious wag has  even nailed a makeshift cross  above the door to further this  illusion. But it turns out to be  the recreation hall. The place  is well-appointed with pool  tables, shuffleboards and gym  equipment. In the A-frame's  open loft are stereo-sets with  Gibsons Legion Branch  ���109  i                   Presents  ���U.       "THE  SANDERSON BROS."

It looks a comfortable  place to unwind from the  woods.  Regular television reception  is not possible in this mountain pocket but a closed-circuit  cassette system provides several hours of canned viewing  each night. We help our host,  Carl Chrismas, choose that  evening's program. It is an  unknown film with an intriguing title that proves to be  a complete turkey but that is  par for the course on any  t.v. set and it doubtless keeps  the boys amused.  "Pretty far cry from the old  times, eh?" says Carl, another  woods veteran, as we sit  with drinks in the cosy guesthouse, after the show,  "Sure is," 1 agree and let  my mind drift back.  It is the fall of 1949 and I  am condemned once more to  the doleful, world's end  outpost called Craddock's  Slough. I recall, with undiminished dismay, my first  sight of the place. It slouches  across the marsh grass at the  head of a long, narrow tidefiat  in a small, blind bay, a frowsy  clutch of battered shacks  huddled against the many-  green wall of the rain forest.  No one building matches  another. It is as though the  sea herself has assembled the  float-camp piece by piece in  the crotch of this tiny inlet.  The shacks and the small  boom in front of them are  high and dry at the moment.  The tide is dead out and the  flat, apart from from a creek  on the farther side, is a slimy  morass, foul smelling on even  this damp day and empty of  water.  1 have arrived at the dismal  camp after a six-hour boat trip  from Prince Rupert and a set  of circumstances that would  be burdensome to relate.  Suffice to say that I found  myself on my uppers in that  brawling seaport town and  Ihis was the sole job available.  It is only my second camp and  I am feeling apprehensive  enough to begin with. This  initial glimpse of the place  does nothing to set me at  ease.  George Craddock, the  owner, signs me on in his  upholstered woodshed of an  office. He is a sour looking  man with a face like creased  leather and vanishing red  hair. "You ever blow whistles  before?" he growls suspiciously.  "Sure," I lie with hopeful  conviction. I have only the  sketchiest knowledge of the  job in question but hope to  bluff it through until I learn  the ropes. Craddock seems  satisfied and directs me to  find an empty bed in one of  the tarpaper shanties that  pass for bunkhouses. The  interior of the place is even  less prepossessing; a single  gloomy, grimy room with half  a dozen Army cots hugging  the splintery walls and an  oil-drum stove in the centre.  Judging by the gamy reek of  the place and a couple of  clotheslines strung over the  heater, it doubles as a drying  room. I toss my suitcase  under a vacant bunk, open a  window and lie down to  ponder my fate.  to be continued...

Ellinfihtim s  *-   Astrology  Paul Newman and Ed Astner alar In the gripping police drama  "Fort Apache, The Bronx" on view at the Twilight Theatre  this week.  At the Twilight  Paul Newman has been in a  bit ofa box-office slump since  he made the hugely successful  The Sting, with Robert Redford, but there is no doubt  of his return to top form as the  tough, honest cop in Fort  Apache, The Bronx, which is  the featured film of the week  at the Twilight Theatre.  Fort  Apache,  The   Bronx  was filmed on site in the  desperate ghetto jungle of the  41st precinct in New York.  Audiences starved for the  magnetic Newman of old and a  two fisted police drama in the  tradition of Humphrey Bogart  and George Raft get both in  this gripping film.  Fort Apache, The Bronx has  Newman   backed   up   by   a  highly competent cast in  Edward Asner, television's  Lou Grant, Rachel Ticotin, and  Ken Wahl as Newman's  young partner. The film will  be shown locally Wednesday,  April 29, through Sunday,  May 3.  There will be no other film  showing at the Twilight  Theatre this week as the  management turns its theatre  over as it has done for the  past several years to host  the Sunshine Coast Music  Festival. The Dance Section of  the Festival will be held at the  theatre Monday through Wednesday, May 4-6. The competitions get under way at  9:00 a.m. each morning and  members of the public are  invited to watch the events.

Robert W. Jeffery will  lecture on Christian Science  under the sponsorship of  Christian Science Society,  Sechelt, at Gibsons United  Church on Sunday, May 3, at  4 p.m. He draws parallels  between mankind's need for  direction and guidance, and  the mariner's reliance on the  stars to guide his ship.  "Just as the navigator  knows he can't follow lights  attached to his own ship, or  lights drifting in the water  alongside of the ship, even so  we find the Christ, our spiritual beacon, neither in mere  self-generated positive thinking, nor in floating human  theories, opinions, and philosophical    reasoning."  Art show  a delight  ��� Fran Berger photo  jeannle Kaolin's delightful blend of humour and Intimacy Is  evident In her portrayal of Henri doing an early morning Jig  Instant fame?  H    by Joan Huestis Foster  Ed. note: On January 29 of  but year we ran an Interview  with artist Joy Zemel Long of  West Vancouver along with a  reproduction of an example of  her work. Last week the Vancouver Sun ran an article  outlining how an anonymous  buyer had purchased Ms.  Long's work for $500,000.  Her friend Joan Huestis  ' Foster has written on the good  fortune of Ms. Long and we  1 concur that It couldn't happen  to a nicer lady.  ' Instant Fame... maybe, but  it doesn't really occur. What  happens is that something  that has been known to a few  Tor a long time suddenly  becomes known to a great  'many. What it all really means  Is 30 years of hard work.  II is truly lovely to see someone who has been steadfast  in her art, maintaining her  integrity in the face of a  commercial world, hanging in  (here without matching anyone's drapes, constantly refusing to painl dogs or calendar scenes to reap some of the  benefits in her own lifetime.  .Klow she is absolutely free.  ," Joy Long says that her  ' happiest thought is that she is  no longer responsible for Ihe  /cure and preservation of her  'paintings, most of which are  oil on t.invas. She knows lhat  "lur life's w rk will be in good  hands. This whole business  ..has been quite a trauma,  in talking about coming up for  Ihe Jean Kamins exhibit at the  Arts Centre, she paused and  said. "Oh... it suddenly  occurred to me I won't have  to worry about my sleeping  bag in the middle of your  living room floor... I can stay  at a motel" and then, "Just  POTTERY  SALE  now I'd better not leave the  house, it's still jammed to the  rafters with these expensive  paintings."  Phone calls are clanging in  "I went to Art School with  you." "We have a lovely array  of new cars, boats, furniture,  etc." and of course every one  of the people who have been  saying casually over the years  "Joy dear, one of these days I  simply must have one of your  paintings" and then walked  away for another year. Some  of that ready financial support  would have been handy a  week or so earlier. Too late  now.chaps I  Joy Long feels that it is  important to mention the early  encouragement and continuing support she has received  from the Burnaby Art Gallery  and from its director, Jack  Hardman, in particular. Since  her paintings represent her  life, the planned biography  will require few words. It will  be a beautiful book, painted in  living colour. Congratulations  Joy Zemel Long, it couldn't  happen to a nicer, more  dedicated person.  by Joan Huestis Foster  I knew this exhibition would  be good because the invitation  was marvellous and the best yet  issued by the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre but the word  'applique' and past experience  led metoexpect something tiny  and exhaustively worked, very  mild and good tasty. I was little  prepared for the size or the  exuberant originality and  warmth of this delightful show.  I was bowled over at the  entrance. It is for this initial  throat-grabbing joy that I have  continued to plod out to Art  Galleries for so many of my  many years.  I refuse to even describe this  work. Why minge on about  numbers and titles when it is all  so fresh and good, big, confident, friendly and easy. This is  free expression. We are privileged and flattered to be invited  to share someone else's life and  it's great. Here is art with no  paint at all. Here is Ihe warmth  and passion that just last week I  was begging. If I'd written last  week's article this week I'd be  accused of being a bit after the  fact.  It is to be hoped that whole  families, especially children,  will hot-foot it to the Sunshine  Coast Art Centre to enjoy the  tapestries of Jean Kamins and  the photography of Henri  Robideau, on exhibit until the  10th of May.  For review I will simply  transcribe my notebook verbatim. Why bother with cumbersome sentences. The following is faithful to my notes:  Free, freedom, vital, humour.  Ha. in bed she's trying to read  and mollify, comfortable,  backpacking, Life, Happiness,  Confidence, Sleeping, laughing, eating, gardening, irritation, pickling, great colour,  wild, baby draped on father,  joyous, warmth, great use of  fabric, splendid photography,  funny, nice people, kids will  love this work.  Great, great stuff...fresh...  uninhibited, friendly. Unscramble all that and you have the  show, on now at the corner of  Trail and Medusa in Sechelt.

The addendum to the Joint  Use agreement governing the  Roberts Creek community  centre/gymnasium received  approval from both the Regional Board and the School  Board last week. Now it must  go to Victoria for approval,  hopefully just a formality  after the government's previous approval in principle.  It'll take at least another week  though.  The Regional Board found  one obstacle in the way of  the new facility, however.  The by-law to raise money by  specified area taxation, passed by referendum in September 1979, provides for a  sum of only $350,000 whereas  the cost of the building has  now risen to $500,000. The  actual amount to be raised by  Bartholomew's in Gibsons  $130,000 but to make everything legal the by-law will  have to be changed.  FnnFalre.

As usual, the small but  hard-working group of ladies  from St. Aidan's put on a very  nice tea for St. George's Day  last Wednesday (a day early)  at the Church Hall.

Lie down  and cover your entire face  (except eyes) and breathe  through this as long as you can  stand it.  Dennis Gamble, also of  Argus, has a very effective  way of removing tatoos.  You cover the tatoo with salt.  Then salt and wet a portion of  cheesecloth and start rubbing.  Dennis says you have to rub  until the area resembles raw  hamburger and suggests  biting on a bullet while this is  going on. Watch out for infection and show a doctor  when you are done.  I saw the result of this  operation that Dennis' wife  performed on him and it is a  fool-proof method of removing  Mom or Mable or whatever  h*om your body.  Louis Cote has been handing out rabbits all over town.  He gives them away like circus  flyers. We have a buck and a  doe which have produced two  fine litters and now Oliver and  Ruby Larson are in the  business. Nicki and Shannon  Wallace have also been  blessed with one.  Rabbits are almost as good  at it as mink and humans, but  you should study up on them  before going into this as there  are lots of rules.  There is good eating and  lots of pelts if you can stand  to kill the little beggars.  It looks like we are going to  lose our favourite local crafts-  persons and artists. Gregg  and Jackie Deacon have sold  their property and rented in  Nanaimo. A going-away bash  will be held at the fish farm  and all friends are welcome.

Copies of the text portion of  this plan are available at the Regional District office. A settlement plan map is available  for viewing at the same location. Interested citizens and community groups are  invited to participate in the discussion by commenting on the proposals and by  providing suggestions for inclusion in the plan.  Office Hours:  885-2261  Monday ��� Wednesday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm  Thursday ��� Friday: 8:00 am ��� 6:00 pm  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, (Wharf Street)  Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3A0  Decision on firehall  by Kuth Fort-eater 885-2418  Referendum    on    Saturday.  The Sunshine Coast Regional District will hold a  referendum on Saturday, May  2nd, at the Welcome Beach  Community Hall to authorize  the borrowing of the sum of  $30,000.00 for the purpose of  purchasing the piece of  property adjacent to the  present fire hall in Halfmoon  Bay.  The purpose of this proposed purchase would be to  allow for the extension of the  present limited fire hall in  future years. As the area  grows in population, so will  the needs that have to be met  for the expansion of fire  fighting facilities.  The hall will be open on  May 2nd from 8 a.m. until  8 in the evening. Those  eligible to vote will be the  residents of Area 'B' whose  names are on the List of  Electors.  There will be an advance  poll at the Regional District  office between 11 a.m. and  6 p.m. on April 30th for those  who will not be available  to vote on May 2nd. Anyone  who would care to examine the  proposed by-law may do so  during office hours at the  Regional Board Office.  Hospital Auxiliary meets  Monday.  The regular monthly meeting of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary will be at  Welcome Beach Hall on  Monday, May 4th at 8 p.m.  It is hoped that all members  will be in attendance as well as  any new residents of the area  who would be made most  welcome.  This will be a busy meeting  as plans will be made for the  Mother's Day party at the  extended care section of the  hospital which is hosted by  this Auxiliary. Lots of help  is appreciated for this special  day for those who are shut in  hospital. We can help make it  a happy day for them.  This will be the last meeting  prior to the Timber Days  project which is taken on by  the Auxiliary every year - the  Tea Garden - always a popular  spot at the park in which to  sit down and enjoy a cuppa  Stress  workshop  Stress has become the  fashionable term of the 80's  that people use to describe a  wide variety of physical and  emotional ailments. But how  many people know what stress ���!���  really is? There is a difference ���;.  between stress, which can be >;.  a positive and motivating force Kj  in your life, and dis-stress ���"  which is a stress overload  that can lead to physical  and/or emotional dis-ease.  How many of us would enjoy a  life without ups and downs,  with no wrong moves, without  challenge, without "spice"?  Hans Selye, a major stress  researcher says, "the absence  of stress is - death". Although  we need stress to stay alive  the trick is to find ways to  balance dis-stress with eu-  stress (relaxation).  Wear   comfortable,   loose  clothing, bring a notebook and  pen; a sleeping bag or mat to f  lie and sit on.  Gloria Lifton, the instructor,  is a counsellor and Registered  X-ray Technologist who has  experience leading groups in  personal development and  stress management.  Date: May 2, Saturday,  10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Place: Chatelech Music Room, Fee: $15  (Please issue cheque to:  School District #46 Sunshine  Coast). Lunch: Bring a bagged  lunch.

Lots of  help will be needed for this  day's event which will be on  the   Sunday  of  May   17th.  While on the subject of  Timber Days - Halfmoon Bay  is very fortunate that Stephanie Murphy has consented  to run as the*Halfmoon Bay  candidate for Miss Timber  Maid. Stephanie will be a  wonderful representative for  the area as she is a charming  lass. You can help Stephanie  in her campaign by buying  tickets which will be on sale by  now - the more ticket sales she  makes the better her chances  for   winning   the   contest.  Judgement of course is  made on many facets of the  candidate, including her  participation in the various  sports activities throughout  Timber Days.  Thanks from Welcome Beach,  The plant and bake sale  which was held last week at  the Welcome Beach Community Hall was a great  success this year.  Jean and Bob Scott, who  convened the plant sale, were  delighted by the co-operation  of all who took part and had  special words of praise for all  who donated plants and  garden goods.  People had taken the  trouble to beautifully mark  and identify the particular  plants donated which made  the task of those who were  selling a very easy one. The  selection was wide and varied  and no one left the hall empty  handed.  Likewise,  the bake table  was a mouth-watering spectacle which was sold out in no  time. Thanks and appreciation  go to all those marvellous  bakers in the area who so  generously donated goodies.  In last week's column I  made mention of the fact that  the boundaries for membership in the Welcome Beach  Community Association extended to the area covered by  the Halfmoon Bay Fire Department. At the present time  this is not quite so. This  matter will be brought up at  the Annual General meeting  which takes place on June 9th  at the hall. At the present  time only those as far as  Brooks Cove are eligible to  join and the Board would like  to see this extended to include  the whole fire district. You will  be able to vote on this at the  June meeting.  Happy holiday.  On behalf of all of us who  live here and know Olive and  Keith - may we wish you a  delightful and happy holiday  in merry old England! At least  she used to be merry, but  not nowadays apparently.  We received a phone call  from Britain this week and  things are pretty grim right  now between racial problems  and tremendous unemployment figures. No doubt things  will sort themselves out  eventually as they usually do  over there, but it is quite a  struggle for many thousands  of people.  Glad to hear that our Miss  Maybee of Redrooffs is home  again and doing well after a  spell in hospital.  MAVERICK  COACH LINES  announces- Additional Service  Lv.

Not the least of these is our  voluntary fire department. Too often, we the citizens are  ignorant of the manner in which voluntary service  organizations perform their skills and duties, and too often we  fail to heed their cries for aid, be it financial or simply a helping  hand.  Public Protective Services fall into my jurisdiction on  Gibson's Council, and Larry Trainor is my deputy. Last  Thursday evening Larry and I met with a group of the Fire  Department which included the Fire Chief Mel Buckmaster  and their longtime Master planner and instructor Cliff  Mahlman. We sat, listened and made notes for hours as they  spelled out in great detail their fire-fighting pre-plans,  capability and incapability due to the lack of adequate water  lines, undersized hydrants in certain locations, or the lack of  them.  The low fire loss record in this area is to be recognized as a  great tribute to a very well organized and trained fire fighting  crew���but the time has come when they need our help and  need it at the risk of peril to ourselves.  Most of us would presume that at the sound of a fire alarm  and discovery of the location they rush there without a preplan. Not so; all streets, hydrants and water lines have been  carefully studied, tested as to pressure (which varies from area  LAUNDRY BASKETS  by Rubbermaid  Will not sag or buckle  Easy grip handles  22'/." X 16'/," X lUlV'h.  to area). The studied and rehearsed pre-plan for all major  buildings and condominiums in the area, is the manner in  which they tackle a fire.  We desperately need up-grading in certain areas to provide  adequate fire-fighting capabilities and this will take money. It  is no one's fault that this is now necessary. A certain amount of  up-grading has gone on every year, but we are not keeping up  with deterioration through age, and with need for larger lines  through growth.  In our talks we discovered concerns that we all should be  sharing with our Volunteer Fire Fighters. As in most instances  of human relationships it seems that there has been a lack of  communications, and lack of advisory input from their point of  view in attempting to deal with potential large scale  conflagrations. The time for input they say, is before  construction even begins. Who of us thinks of the Fire  Department except when disaster is upon us. It is my hope that  we can do more in the near future toward up-grading and  tying in with Regional water lines. As I have said, it will cost  money.  \\  1. Cut out Ihis Coupon  2.

Is it not paid for bv  special grants from Victoria?  Answer:  Special Education funding  is a very complicated and  involved process, but you mav  be sure of one thing. It is Not  funded by grams of money  from Victoria. The way it  works out, a School Board is  allowed to extend their budget  in the amount needed for  special education, and this  extension is added to their  basic budget. The amount  generated on behalf of special  education is cost-shared with  Victoria on exactly the same  basis as the regular programs.  This means that a wealthy  school district such as Vancouver essentially does pay for  all of its school taxes. The  same thing may hold true for  the Sunshine Coast.  Local programs are approved by the Ministry, which  then authorizes extra funding  to be raised in the form of  special approvals, which are  not special grants. Children  who need special help are  funded in two ways. First of  all, they are included in the  "head count" which determines how many pupils  are in the district. Then extra  funds are added on to help  pay for their special services.  In this way, children with  special needs should never be  regarded as a burden on a  School Board, since they are  funded at 180% of what funds  are generated for a non-  needy child.  The amount paid for education    by    the    Provincial  Government  to  each   school  district is dependent on two  factors,  the  basic  education  tax   levy   and   the   assessed  value for school tax purposes.  The Ministry and the Cabinet  decide  the  extent   to  which  they wish to share in the total  costs of education. Then the  basic    levy    is    determined  leach year) by the Lieutenant-  Governor in Council under the  provisions of the Schools Act  and the assessed values are  certified by the  Assessment  Commissioner under the provisions   of   the   Assessment  Act.  The amount of money  raised by the basic levy is the  share of the cost of the basic  education program paid for by  each district. Remember that  the   term,   basic   education  program,   embraces   special  education. The rest, if any,  is paid by the government.  If by any chance the basic  levy   raises   more   than   is  needed, the government can  collect   the   difference    for  redistribution   to   all   other  boards.  Great problems are being  created by the rapid rise in the  value of real estate, especially  homes in urban areas. If the  assessed value of property  doubles, the school taxes may  also double, or increase even  more, if the mill rate goes up.  Vancouver is in a state of  turmoil right now over its  share of school taxes. Its  Board is threatening not to  pass the required legislation  permitting the City to collect  this year's levy. The Ministry  could, some people believe,  dismiss the Board and put in a  Commissioner to follow the  steps prescribed in the  Schools Act.  When school taxes are high  and rising, citizens always  look askance at the schools  seeking for 'frills' to eliminate  in order lo keep expenses  down. Sometimes special services are placed under fire,  because they are b elicved to  be costly. 1 hope that was not  the thought behind your  question. Special education is  part of the basic education  program and is not a frill.  The perceived needs of each  school district above those  included in the basic education program are met in full  through local taxation (increased mill rate). For these  the Board of School Trustees  is accountable to the ratepayers.  Most Boards of School  Trustees are responsible corporate bodies, who want the  best for the children on whom  the future of our community  (MOlOCh  Wharl Rd  OFFICE  Photocopiers  Cash Registers  Office Supplies  ELECTRONICS  ��� Typewriters  ��� Calculators  Furniture   &   Stationery  Sechell  885-3735  f  capilano  college  Invite* Applications  B for an  INSTRUCTOR IN A HEALTH  ORIENTATION PROGRAMME  Sechell, B.C.

They need our  support and understanding  when the heat is on. The last  thing we should demand of  them is that they start cutting  programs for children with  special needs, or any program  that the Board members, in  their wisdom, regard as a  benefit to their district.  The Sunshine Coast is a  growing district, and growth  will depend to a large extent  on how the people who are  attracted to the Sunshine  Coast regard our schools.  Rather than try to limit the  School Board's operation by  attacking the budget, we  should be very interested in  the quality of education we  are getting for our money,  and make the board accountable for every dollar spent.  Good working conditions,  good schools, well paid staff,  and ��� a variety of programs  to fit every child's needs  should be a source of civic  pride.   Thanks   for   asking.

I was working on  a, farm in Somerset in wartime  England. Good walking shoes  had been fine all summer but  were unsuitable for muddy  pastures and bartons and I  didn't want to spend another  winter wearing rubber boots  every day. The men all wore  heavy, hob-nailed boots so I  bought myself a pair.  The first day I wore them to  work I wisely decided that half  a day would probably be  enough. So after lunch I laced  up my new boots and went  back to work expecting to be  kept busy around the yard  and barn until milking-time.  No mention was made of my  new boots but the Boss said  he wasted me to go down to  the moor and move the heifers  and dry cows from the field  behind the church to the field  "on batch" beside the army  camp. "Okay" I said, "How  many are there?" "Five  heifers, three dry cows and  the yearling bull" the boss  replied and as he didn't offer  me any help, I presumed he  thought I could handle the job  and anyway I was too proud to  suggest it might be easier  to get the animals across the  five road crossroads at the  bottom of town if there were  two of us.  In that part of Somerset all  farms have some high ground  and some land on the "moor",  low-lying pastures which were  once under water. Because of  wartime requirements which  forced even dairy farmers to  plough up so many acres each  year to grow grain, grassland  was at a premium and we  rented extra fields where they  were available and spent  much time on the road moving  cattle, if possible the day  before they felt the grass  supply had been depleted.  I got my bike and set off for  the field behind the church,  going by way of the batch,  where I propped the field gate  open and stopped at the  churchyard to close the gates.  No need to count heads to  know I had a problem. There  were only three heifers and  the bull in the field. Obviously  we should have moved these  beasts the day before. The  cows were easily located in the  field to the south, but the  heifers had to be among the  cows in the field to the west.  No hedges or fences separated these moorland acres,  just 4-5 ft. wide deep ditches,  . sometimes choked with rushes  and other aquatic plants.  These had recently been  cleaned and there was no  choice but to jump, easily  done wearing shoes but taking  considerable energy to propel  those heavy boots.  Looking back I can't ima-  their  back over the ditch individually and they were of  course reluctant to leave  their greener pasture and then  there were the two heifers to  separate from the neighbour's  herd.  Something over an hour  later I had them all together  and ready to go and I was  exhausted, but worse was to  come.  On the road they ambled  along quietly taking advantage ofthe thick grass growing  along the uncut verge and I  was in no mood to hurry them.  1 pushed my bike and gently  urged the slowpokes to keep  moving. Of course, in the time  it had taken me to round up  my charges, someone had  taken a shortcut through the  churchyard and left the gate  open, and children running  out of a garden frightened two  of the heifers which bolted  into the churchyard.  That was a spring when the  afternoon excitement for  children coming home from  school was to watch me  chasing calves around the  orchard. Their mothers had  gone across the road to the  barn where food awaited, but  often one or more of the  calves doubled back at the  gate leading me a merry chase  around the trees. The churchyard, full of gravestones of  all shapes and sizes, was  worse. Except along the main  paths the grass was long and  the heifers were in no mood to  leave willingly. There were  also yew trees, poisonous to  cattle, lining the walk to the  church door  Eventually with much yell  changed. The five-road crossing posed no problems as a  bus pulled to a halt on one side  and a truck on the other as we  came to the highway, discouraging any animal with  enterprising ideas from break  ing ranks. With a whoop and a  holler they were encouraged  to hurry across to the obvious  haven of the road up the  batch.  Here luck was with me  again. A soldier loafing outside the Nisson huts obligingly  agreed to block the road  beyond our destination and  direct the lead cow through  the still open gate. I closed the  gate with more than a sigh of  relief.  The way home, a couple of  miles uphill, was just about  the last straw. My feet weighed a ton and I could barely  muster the strength to put one  foot in front ofthe other, much  less ride the bike.  Milking was already in progress when I finally dragged  myself into the barn to be  greeted with "What on earth  have you been doing. It  couldn't have taken you more  ���than half an hour to move  those cows?" I didn't bother  to explain - just told them I  was going home to bed.  I never did ask the boss if  he took one look at my boots  and deliberately sent me off  on a wild goose chase. But  then he couldn't have known  those heifers were all out - or  could he?

Exit the hunter  Carl's  corner  In search of a career  b.v Carl Chrismas  We were almost tempted to  spend the night there but I  think wc both felt it would be  an invasion of the brothers'  privacy. The feeling of walking  in on ghosts had been very  strong when we first entered the  cabin and wc hadn't quite  thrown off the feeling.  As we left the clearing 1  stopped for a last look and gave  an involuntary salute to the  ghosts in the Dutchman's  cabin!  The rest of the journey from  there to the miners' cabin wasa  long, tough hike, .lust before  dark we had sat down for a  smoke and to try to get our  bearings. We were not sure  whether we were lost or not at  that point so we had to make a  decision on a camp site.  Once again the dogs had  deserted us and had gone off by  themselves. I'crse whistled and  called, then saw Ted lying on  the ground just below us. We  walked down to take a look and  found him to be lying in the  middle of the trail. Our tracks  were still visible from the  previous day and we knew it  was not far to the cabin. Once  again the bugs came in handy.  We were just about to the  cabin when both Ted and  Windy broke loose with the  most ungodly baying and  caterwauling. A cougar had  crossed our trail not many  hours before and the dogs were  hot on it. But no way could we  chase them in the dark. We  were lucky enough to grab  them both and lead them the  rest of the way to the cabin.  "We'll be ready to go at the  crack of dawn", growled Perse.  "Maybe we'll get lucky yet!"  But during the night the rain  commenced again. It would  wash out all sign of tracks and  be a waste of time. Perse was  completely frustrated.  "Have you noticed that we  have not seen a sign of any  game this trip? Not a grouse,  deer or any other animal!  Maybe all the game left with  the Dutchmen! Let's get to hell  out of this country!"  It was well that we left when  we did. The rain turned to snow  and made the crossing of the  swing bridge more of a nightmare than coming over the first  time.  The long sleep hill up out of  the river bottom had to be dug  and sanded as the snow got  deeper and the weather colder.  Wc began to have carburetor  problems with the old car and  by the time we got to Lady-  smith at three o'clock the  following morning, the only  way we could keep the engine;,  running was foroneofustolie  on the running board and tap,  the carburetor bowl with a  wrench.  By the time we made Cassidy  and home we were the sorriest  looking pair of skunked cougar  hunters that ever hit the Island.  That was the straw lhat  broke the camel's back. My  cougar hunting career was cut  as cleanly as if slashed by the  blade of a finely honed skinning knife. The only woods I  wanted to see at that moment  would have to have home or a  warm, comfortable camp nearby. And a regular pay cheque  every two weeks.  By the look of the snow on  Cecil Mountain it looked like it  would   be  a  month or two  before we would get back up  there. But a week orso laterthe  answer to that problem appeared on the Island Highway  in the form ofa stout man in a  big. new Buick. His name was  Bert Welch, he owned Olympic  logging Co. Ltd. at Big  Qualicum River and he was  looking for a good logging  truck driver.  He had just hired Wally  Walsh, a hooktender neighbour of mine from down the  road and had picked me up as I  was walking to Perse's place.  At five o'clock the next  morning I was riding with  Wally the sixty-odd miles up  the Island Highway; at seven  o'clock I was herding a three-  ton Ford truck and ten-ton  Hayes trailer up a plank road  towards Home Lake. I had a  full belly from a camp-cooked  breakfast and was on the  payroll at $5.00 per day. I was  on top ofthe world!  The cougar hunting phase of  mv career was over.

Confessions of an out of work musician  The search for sustenance  byEhJax  I had now totally given up  on the music business (for the  time being) and returned to  the coast in search of a full  time job. The search was a  long and frustrating one for,  as I have often said, there is  no job worse than the job of  finding a job.  In the weeks that followed,  I walked, drove, hitch-hiked  and pedalled my way in and  out of a vast variety of application forms. It was always the  same; unsympathetic secretaries filing them away under  H for Hopeless.  I checked with Manpower  constantly and got to the point  where the fellow at the other  end of the line knew who I was  by the sound of my voice. I  even went to visit him once in  a while.

HA I If tomorrow never comes, next  week is out of the ballpark.  Things were getting tough I  These sporadic temporary jobs  were not paying the bills.  Finally, on the brink of  despair, I went to welfare.  I did not find the Department of Human Resources to  be very humane. They were  resourceful, mind you. They  managed to dig around in  their bureaucratic memory  bank and find many reasons  not to help me.  When I say "they" I am not  referring to all people in the  department but to the department itself. The first woman I  consulted was very kind and  understanding; she actually  listened to me and wanted to  help. Unfortunately she was  merely the receptionist. When  she brought out the boss I  knew I was in trouble. This  woman was meant She had  the charm of a pair of fungus-  ridden sweat socks and the  undaunted ears of a brick wall.  She told me she couldn't  help me and told me to come  back next Tuesday. I was  supposed to start a job next  Tuesday, but that didn't  matter to her. Forego the job  if I want help from them. I  pleaded with her, displaying  my empty pockets. I needed  .Announcing  anew  at fantastic savings.  Time-Zero  Supercobr  SX-70 Land film  Polaroid  Uses new Time-Zero Supercolor SX-70 film.

"Maybe a food voucher,"  said the sweat socks.  I wasn't proud and accepted. She was though and  rejected.  Because I had no identification I was (and I quote)....  "shit outta luck fella."  I could tell she really  enjoyed that.  That was my first visit.  My second visit was more  fun. The job fell through and  so did my appointment for  Tuesday. On Wednesday I  was ushered into an office  and found myself face to face  once again with Attila the  Hun-ness.  She took to the attack  immediately and wouldn't  let me say a word in my  defence. She was better than  Perry Mason and before I  knew it I was condemned  as a lazy no good gigolo.  It seems that because I live  with a woman (no matter that  it has only been for a short  while out of the kindness of  her heart; for I had no place  to go) and share a bed, we are  as if married. Because my  "common law spouse" is  working, she is, according to  the department, duty-bound  to support me. It does not  matter that she has her own  problems and doesn't want to  support me. I find it semi-  amusing that I walked into  that office single and walked  out married. At the time,  though, I was too peeved to  enjoy the joke.  It had reached a point now  that there was no way they  were going to give me financial aid. Attila the sweat sock  took immense pleasure in  that. I really wanted to smash  her smug little face in, but I  am a peaceful man. Besides,  she waa kind of cute in a  Quasimodo sort of way. I  didn't want to ruin that.  Instead I merely hissed at her,  "I thought you were supposed  to help people" and made a  very loud and dramatic final  exit.  My next step was obvious.  Back to the city with a better  plan, a plan I knew I could  carry out. 1 took my guitar  and was to sing in the streets  of Vancouver.  Next week: the street scene.

On the  Seafood Platter  bv Chak-Chak  FREE  PUBLIC LECTURE  "Christ - The Light  shining in darkness"  By  Robert W. Jeffery,  C.S.B.  Member of the  Christian Science  Board of Lectureship  Sun., May 3 at 4 p.m.  in United Church, Gibsons  Christian Science Society, Sechelt warmly invites you  In the early days, the  settlers followed the habit  of the native people of North  America and became hunters  and gatherers of the natural  foods available. Slowly this  changed and ranching and  farming became the method of  food production.  The production of seafood,  however, has remained mainly  a hunting (fishing) and gathering operation. Due to the  dwindling stocks of many  varieties of seafood the old  methods are going to be  replaced by new techniques.  One method is "fish farming"  or aquaculture. The Sunshine  Coast is an ideal place for this  type of operation. I only hope  that it takes the form of a  family-type of cottage industry  like the oyster farms that have  been a part of our community  for many years now.  Salmon are being reared in  ponds in Porpoise Bay by the  Sechelt Indian Band at the  present time as part of the  salmonid enhancement program of the Federal Fisheries  Department. This is not a true  "fish farm" operation, however, as these fish will be  released into the inlet when  they reach a certain size,  where it is hoped they will  mature and be harvested in  the usual manner.  Another type of operation  that is being researched at  the present time is the production of seaweed. As I  reported in my column of  November 11 last year, Dr.  Ron Foreman, of Simon Fraser  University is directing a  "Seaweed Research Project"  at Bamfield on the west coast  of Vancouver Island. They  have proposed that this "kelp  farming" could be started in  the Queen Charlotte Islands,  at Sointula on Malcolm Island  and the Pender Harbour area.  As I have told you in an  earlier issue, the first time I  had kelp soup was in 1937 at  Harry Roberts' place on  Nelson Island, near Pender  Harbour.  "Combu" is the Japanese  name for kelp and there is a  good market for this product  in Japan. I am sure we will  develop a taste for this nutritious food in  the  future.  More on aquaculture soon.

A narrow squeak  Ramblings  of a Rover  by Dee Cee  In attempting to recall  events that occurred almost  half a century ago it is inevitable that there are some  that are forgotten and perhaps  it is as well that they are.  About all 1 recall of the  summer and fall months of  1936 was that unlike other  years I stayed in the Dunvegan area and, even although  jobs were scarce and money  even more so, I managed to  survive. The Depression far  from lifting was getting even  worse and the bread-lines in  the cities and towns were  getting longer and poverty  and want were only too  evident the length and  breadth of the land. The Conservative Government of the  loathed R.B. Bennett had fi-  naly been forced to do something to alleviate the suffering  and had established what  were called "relief camps".  Actually all these amounted to  were excuses to get the  hungry men out of the cities  for a few weeks into isolated  areas where they were paid  the pitifully small sum of  $5.00 per month and then,  at the end of a two-month  period, shuttled back to the  city, given vouchers for meals  and a bed for the night, while  a new bunch took their place  on these makeshift work  projects.  One of the main reasons I  had decided to stay around  that summer was because  my friend Mogens Jensen fell  ill and had to be hospitalized  in Cornwall. He was still  engaged in land clearing for  McKinnon the owner of the  local sawmill and had acquired, besides his team of  horses, three cows, a bunch of  pigs being fattened and about  half a hundred laying hens.  I agreed to look after them  while he was in the hospital  and that spring did quite a lot  of work for the municipality,  gravelling the roads and later  scything the grass along those  same roads. I made $2.00 per  day driving the team but only  $1.50 per diem for the scythe  work. As I have remarked on  previous occasions, it appears  not only incredible but ridiculous in comparison to the  wages paid today, but I was  grateful for the work and  stretched the few dollars I  received to unbelievable  lengths.  The following winter spent  in my cabin passed more or  less uneventfully, but by the  spring of 19371 had come to a  decision. I had had lots of time  to  think  things  over   and,  although I had security of a  sort and a roof over my head, I  was getting absolutely nowhere. All my dreams of  seeing the world and partaking of the various experiences that I had read  about and intended to act  upon, somehow or other  hadn't turned out as I had  planned. Here I was almost  30 years of age and what had  I actually seen or accomplished? I had covered a small  portion of the Maritime  provinces, dabbled in the  flcshpots of Montreal and  Hull, Quebec and galloped  over quite a large area of  Ontario with my friend Eddie,  during the Consolidated Press  days, but this was a far cry  from what I had intended to  do and what I had dreamed of  during my schooldays.  My mind was made up.  Come spring I would say  farewell to the cabin for the  time being and hit out for the  West Coast. Who knows, if 1  reached there I would at least  have accomplished something  and the mere fact of being or.  the shores ofthe Pacific Ocean  could lead to anything. Possibly I could even get a job on  a ship to the Orient or India  or the South Seas. Anything  but continuing to rusticate in  this farming community. I had  tarried long enough.  At this stage of my unrest  it would almost appear that  fate took a hand in speeding  up my decision to move on.  I had not seen Howard B., the  bootlegger, for quite some  time but now he came to visit  me at the cabin and, as I  expected, wanted me to make  a trip to Ste. Justine. He was  almost out of moonshine and  not only were there several  dances planned in the neighbourhood, but it would soon  be time for the Highland  Games when the three counties, Stormont, Dundas and  Glengarry were in competition  for the varfotrs-'  was understandable that such  strenuous pursuits as tossing  the caber, putting the shot,  etc. would bring on a tremendous thirst, so I agreed to go.  Same quantity, same terms  and $5.00 a gallon for transporting it.  Well I set off and everyting  went as planned. I had reinforced an old battered suitcase I had been given with  plywood and even put on new  handles, as five gallons of  liquid dynamite is quite a  heavy load and the last thing  I wanted was for an accident  to happen.

I had a presentiment that  something was wrong just as  the train was pulling out of  Alexandria. Much to my  surprise, on glancing out of  the window, I saw an old  friend and drinking buddy of  mine, one Johnny M. a  farmer's son from Dunvegan  and he was running along the  platform waving his arms and  behaving in a lunatic manner,  but the train had gathered  speed so there was not much  I could do about it or find out  what was causing his agitation.  Next stop Greenfield and I  soon found out what was  wrong. As the train slowed  down, one glance was all I  needed. There were two provincial policemen on the  platform and I didn't have to  be told who they were looking  for. I already had the suitcase  out from under the seat but  there was no damned way I  was going to step off that train  and into the waiting arms of  the law. As luck would have  it, the ladies' John was right  at the end of the coach I was  riding in so without hesitation  I dived into it, lugging the  heavy  case   with   me   and  Varictp  JFootJ*  886X936  New  from the  Orient!

I did hear voices and the  tramp of heavy feet and, much  more to my horror, at one  stage someone tried the door.  After an interminable length  of time, or so it seemed to me,  the train eventually got  moving. The next stop was  Maxville and for all I knew  maybe the cops had wired  ahead, so I just stayed put.  When at last I did emerge  and the conductor came  around, he gave me an odd  look but accepted my "cock  and bull" story that I had  decided to go all the way to  Ottawa. I paid the difference  in fare and when we did arrive  in the capital city I really felt  good about it all.  I didn't have my packsack  or any spare clothes but I had  a suitcase full of excellent  hooch and, knowing the city  quite well, I knew just the  place where I could dispose of  it.

Fran Bourassa Photo  One of the VIP's being filmed at Community 10's Open House held at Elphinstone Secondary last Saturday. Busy filming are  Grade II and 12 Communications students.  School trustees consider herbicides  A year ago. following an impassioned plea from residents of  Egmont and Madeira Park, the School Board decided to  discontinue the use of any herbicide to control unwanted  vegetation on school grounds.  Last week Maintenance Superintendent Bob Rutter reported to  the Board that he just didn't have the staff to keep all the  perimeter areas cut by hand. The Maintenance staff, he said, take  a pride in keeping the school grounds in top shape and either he  needs more help or permission to use the herbicide Roundup,  previously approved by the Board, with discretion.  Rutter stressed that this herbicide, though more expensive than  some others, had been cleared by agronomists of leaving any  harmful residues. Rutter was supported by P.E. teacher Roger  Douglas citing the problems and time wasted in having to mark  and remark the playing fields after every rain, for track and sports.  The problem was tabled for further consideration, Trustees  were obviously reluctant to return to the use of possibly harmful  chemicals which may or may not be adequately tested. Trustee  Puchalski went on record as being in favour of hiring someone to  do the cutting rather than using a herbicide.  Are trustees being overly cautious in this matter? Is it possible  to be over cautious when you are responsible for other people's  children?  But as Rutter pointed out, many of these products are readily  available for use in home gardens and more chemicals are used in  the community at large than the four gallons a year he would use  on the school grounds.  Open House was held at the Community Television studio in  Elphinstone Secondary and at Coast Cable offices in Sechelt on  Saturday, to allow the community to watch the students of the  Grade 11 and 12 Communications class at work and to view the  new equipment made available to this class and the community by  Coast Cable Vision.  As well as the cablevision VI P's���John Thomas of Coast Cable  Vision, Office Manager Carl Bobardt, and Stan Thomas of Delta  Cablevision���the head of the CRTCs Vancouver office Peter  MacDonald and his assistant Virginia Krapiec were also in  attendance. The present chairman ofthe CRTC Dr. John Maisel  has frequently expressed his personal interest in Community  television and the Sunshine Coast experiment of community  television pioneered and run by Grade 11/12 students may very  well be unique in Canada.  It was a happy occasion, and happiest of all were the former  students of Mrs. MacKown's communications classes of '79 and  '80, for whom it was a reunion. Any envy we may have had for the  new equipment the students of'81 have at their command such as  colour cameras, a new switcher and the mobile TV van, quickly  vanished in the joy of renewing the comradeship which had  flourished in those earlier classes and remembering our  pioneering efforts.  The little things which are so valuable in human relationships  such as Carl Bobardt checking with Karl Johnston that his tie was  straight before going on camera, took us back to our first televised  panel discussion in the fall of'78 with the Regional District and  Aldermanic candidates. A discussion which Karl had chaired and  for which he felt it important to dress with appropriate decorum,  borrowing a tie from his father for the occasion and impressing us  all with his professionalism.  Karl has been accepted for BCIT in September where Jim  Douglas has just completed his first year with distinction.  Kathleen Hall has an interview this week and she may also be  accepted. Courses at BCIT for television, radio and broadcast  journalism are always over subscribed and difficult to get into.  The Thomas's invited Mrs. MacKown and her students to  dinner in the evening with the Coast Cable Vision staff to  celebrate the first Open House.  We've heard a lot recently of the problems attached to joint use  facilities between the School and Regional Boards. It was a pity  none of the Trustees attended the Open House to witness what has  developed into a most successful joint venture between the schools  and the cablevision company.

For Information  886-2615  _     885-5664  It is time something was  said about cut flowers for that  fresh indoor summery feeling.  Whether in the drawing room,  dining room, bathroom or  kitchen, fresh flowers are  matchless at any season but  less expensive at this time of  year and throughout the  summer.  In early spring they can be a  bit of a problem because most  of us hate to deplete what  colour we have. A variety of  container shapes and sizes  can be helpful.  One Japanese bud vase  containing one single branch  of a flowering shrub (Magnolia, Japonica) can look  intentionally simple. A larger,  wide mouthed bowl can be  filled with fresh Salal and with  very few flowers added can  end up looking like a large and  varied bouquet.  Cut flowers will last longer  if the container is spotlessly  clean so wash between dis-  plays.The flowers will get a  better start if they are submerged Up to their necks in  lukewarm water immediately.  Then you can take your time  arranging them.  A Pansy ring is an old  fashioned delight only to be  found at white elephant  sales these days. A Pansy ring  is a shallow, circular, curving-  in bowl with a space in the  centre in which may be placed  candles or a taller floral  arrangement. The bowl's inward curve enables short  stemmed smaller flowers,  (Pansy, Primrose or Alyssum)  to be shown to advantage and  never interferes with dinner  table conversation.  There are tricks to maintaining cut flowers beyond  the warm water. Rose stalks  and other woody branches  should be mashed or cut one  inch up the stem for longer  indoor life. Oriental Poppies  should have the cut stem  cauterized (burned with a  match until sealed) before  being placed in water where  they will last three times as  long, as will cut Tulips if you  pop a copper penny into the  water with the flowers. Wilted  Tulips will often straighten  up from a pronounced droop if  this is done. Please don't ask  me why these tricks work,  they just do.  Freshen the water to as high  as it will go in the bowl and  add more every day. It is sad  for me to see a drooping  bunch of flowers in a half  filled bowl (men are the worst  offenders in this department)  so keep your flowers fresh  and full and they will become  as much a part of your life  as your outdoor garden is.  The Marguerites will soon  be in bloom to solve the cut  flower problem until Christmas, but variety is nice too.  Happy Cutting.

George W. Inglis  There is a quiet revolution  going on in healing today  which promises to be the  greatest boon to mankind since  the days of the healing mission  of Jesus of Nazareth.  The name given to this "new"  type of healing is "holistic",  although it might be labelled  more effectively "wholistic".  since it is healing aimed at the  whole person.  The healing technique is not  entirely new, either, but it is  being used more widely today,  as physics and pyschics are  beginning to walk down the  same street.  It is being employed in  gingerly fashion in some quarters, because it entails an  acknowledgement of the supernatural as a force for good  in human lives.  Another reason why it is  being treated with kid gloves  may very well be because it is  not only supernatural in its  origin, but may be found  recorded throughout the New  Testament of the Christian  Bible, when miraculous healings were performed by Jesus  and his disciples, in the name of  a supernatural being - God.  Since it is not fashionable in  all quarters to believe in such  ' unscientific therapies as faith in  ;a supernatural being, it is  probably with some relief that  some physicians, phycholo-  gisls, psychiatrists and other  members of the scientific  community have come to  realize that great healings have  been effected without calling  on the aid of the supernatural.  It is probably equally disturbing, however, for some of  the holistic medicine teams to  find that clergymen, members  of the order of a supernatural  A revolution  in healing  being, have phenomenal records in effecting healing,  working with dedicated holistic  medicine teams.  It would probably be additionally disturbing to be forced  to face the fact that healing  which takes place without  scientific aids, is in reality  effected by the magnificent  mechanism of the body, as a  gift of the Creator whom  billions of people believe is that  same supernatural being  God.  Sages, healers and wise men  of the East have know.n for  centuries that the body can be  encouraged to effect its own  healing--so have our own  native Indian Shamans!  So did the healers of the  Middle East. Egypt, and Asian  Minor, long before Jesus  appeared on the scene.  The name was the same-  healing���but the methods and  the acknowledgement of the  source of healing varied.  When Jesus said to the  woman with an issue of blood  in Mark 6:24-34. "Daughter,  your faith has made you well;  go in peace, and be healed of  your disease," he spoke directly, naming the method and the  author of the healing of a  hemorrhaging condition which  had confounded physicians for  12 years.  "Faith", he named as the  method of healing���a faith  which had caused the woman  to push her way through a  crowd to touch Jesus' 'robe,  simply because she had heard  of his healing prowess.  The author was implied,  since everything Jesus did was  done in the name of God and  through the power of God.  What Jesus did not go into,  ever, except by teachings which  had to be embraced by that  #THE UNITED CHURCH  CALVARY        %  M            OF CANADA  BAPTIST CHURCH    %  Sunday  Park Rd., Gibsons        a  Worship Services  Pastor: Harold Andrews  ST.

Had he done so directly, he  would have told his audiences  that we are all created by God,  with man being granted the  status of co-creator (at least  this is my belief!), and that we  were created in love and with  the capability of loving others.  He might also have pointed  out that the genetic defects of  birth arc not as calamitous as  humans render them, by their  eagerness to revile the Creator.  This may not appear to be  true, on the surface, nor would  it be reassuring and consoling  to a mother or father whose  child has been born with a  congenital defect!  , Nor would this be necessarily  capable of a miraculous cure  like the blind man in John 9,  whose healing Jesus said was  done, "so that the works of God  might be made manifest in  him", but there are those who  realize that cures are not always  effected by man's standards,  but by the grace of that  supernatural being���God.  What the medical profession  has discovered, is that many  seemingly incurable ailments  have been dispelled or dissipated entirely by using a  technique which induces faith  in the healer, and /or the  healing process.  Conversely, they have found  that patients without faith can  will themselves to death, in  spite of the medical skills at  work.  They have found that patients can be cured in hospital  and can become ill hours after  returning to their home environment, literally defying the  physician's skill.  Therefore, simplistically put,  they have discovered what the  ancient healers knew full well,  that the body can do a magnificent job of healing if the mind  is encouraged to command it,  and believe in it.  Not all of them have acknowledged, or even accepted,  the fact that this faith is a  supernatural event, and the  healing mechanism which is  triggered by this faith is of  supernatural origin, or that a  "whole" person is one who is at  peace with his or her Creator!  However, holistic healing is  one giant step for mankind!

In the past, many families  could turn to grandparents,  other relatives or long-rime  family friends for advice,  baby-sitting, loans, or simply  friendship and support  through a difficult time.  "But today, we often meet  families who feel they are  completely alone in struggling  with problems," says Bea  Hodgson of Summerland,  provincial co-ordinator of Family Month.  May has been proclaimed  "Family Month" in British  Columbia - a time for celebrating families.  This year the theme is  Family Power for Social  Change. "We need to recog-  ���nize that families do have  some powers, and should be  able to influence those institutions which affect and  sometimes cause stress within  families," says Mrs. Hodgson.  'Communities and institutions must be more aware of  their responsibilities toward  families and families must be  more aware of their own  strengths," added Mrs.  Hodgson.  "Government agencies do  their part in assisting low  income families financially  and through subsidizing such  services as long-term care for  the   elderly   and   day-care.  Through encouraging family, community and agency  co-operation, family life will.  be both enriched and extended. By choosing "Family  Power for Social Change" as  the theme for Family Month,  The B.C. Council for the  Family hopes to give a new  perspective on family living in  our province.  "Really, families are a  miracle to be encouraged,  not a problem to be solved,  not a situation to be endured," Mrs. Hodgson concluded.  Health Dept. says no  A letter received from the Ministry of Health refusing the  request for an Audiology clinic for the Gibsons Health Centre was  discussed by School Trustees.  The Ministry feels the present arrangement by which the Powell  River Clinic provides service in Sechelt and Squamish for I week  every 3 months is adequate and that residents of Gibsons and  Squamish have the alternative of attending clinics in Vancouver  or New Westminster if Powell River is considered too far away.  All of which sounds sensible except that residents ofthe areaare  refused appointments on the Lower Mainland on the grounds that  they live in the Coast Garibaldi Health area and should attend  their clinic in Powell River.  The School Board found this attitude unsatisfactory and agreed  to continue to pressthe Ministry to live up to earlier commitments  for an audiology clinic in Gibsons.  YOU  ^^CAN't  FOREST...

Material and Contracting Services  NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC  REGARDING PENDER HARBOUR  Take notice that the Ministry of Lands, Parks and  Housing, following a review of wharf and related  works on Crown foreshore in Pender Harbour, will be  developing a plan to form fhe basis for future management of the harbour. This plan will be undertaken  immediately with a tentative completion date of  December 1,1981. With the exception of those works  authorized by Ihe Regional Director of the Lower  Mainland Region no further improvements are to be  placed on the Crown foreshore at Pender Harbour  during this period. Owners of improvements partially  completed prior to January 1, 1981, but not completed, should contact fhe office listed below for  further consideration.  The Regional District of Sunshine Coast will be cooperating with the Ministry of Lands. Parks and  Housing in developing the plan. Public meetings will  be held to ensure that everyone affected by the plan  will have an opportunity to express their views.  The Ministry will be legalizing existing improvements  ^for a one year term. You can make application for this  ^one year tenure, after April 20, 1981. One of the  prime objectives of the Ministry of Lands. Parks  and Housing in the management of Pender  Harbour and other Crown foreshore areas is  to try and retain the water area in a useful  state for all water users.

Coast Naliiralrvt*  The mystery of herons  bv John Hlnd-Smlth  It has come around to that  time of the year again when  the Great Blue Heron is in  the news. The Heronry at  Twin Creek is now abandoned,  presumably because of all  the logging dry land sorting,  etc. Last year there were still  two active nests but this year  there is nothing. No one  seems to know where the birds  went but Gambier Island has  been suggested as a likely  spot.  A similar fate overtook the  birds in Pender Harbour. A  new housing development  spelt the end of the 60 or 70  nests near Madeira Park and  the birds were forced to move  out. That was the colony  which Keith Simpson spent a  great deal of time studying  and it was birds from this  group which were banded by  Keith and his helpers. This  was the first time herons had  ever been banded and it was  hoped that much information  about their movements could  be gathered. Information was  gathered until the Pender  Harbour birds, like those at  Twin    Creek,    disappeared.

He transferred from that service to the Federal Fisheries  and has now moved again to  the Provincial Conservation  Department. His immediate  superior in the Canadian  Wildlife Service, Dr. John  Kelsall, has retired early so  I guess now we are back to  square one in trying to replace  these guys. There's a young  fellow from Pender Harbour  who will be graduating from  University soon and seems to  be heading in the right  direction.  I guess one cannot fault  these guys for moving around  but it does seem a pity when a  person who has spent much  time studying a particular  species of animal, fish or bird  and learned a great deal about  his field of specialization, then  moves on to something else  and someone has to start from  scratch with, of course, the  benefit of his predecessor's  knowledge. But I guess this is  the way things happen in the  real world around us and, as is  my wont,  I am digressing.  I first heard of the recently  discovered heronry in Pender  Harbour in a very round about  way and have promised not to  divulge its whereabouts. The  birds are sitting on eggs right  now and are quite nervous. If  too many people went pounding in, the birds would  probably desert their nests. 1  only counted 15 nests but  there may be more. That  number only accounts for less  than one quarter of the  birds in the old stand so we  still have a long way to go in  finding the remainder. Talking of long ways, these birds  are going to have a long way to  go when they start the arduous job of feeding their  voracious youngsters.  The nests are in a relatively  small area, all are built in  alders and some of them are  very close together, maybe  five or six feet apart in the  same tree. They are all quite  substantial nests, not like the  small bundle of twigs that  were apologies for nests in  Twin Creek and it was hard to  understand any self-respecting bird using such a place to  try and reproduce their  species.  One question which rather  intrigues me is, who, among  the hierarchy of the heron  world, decides where the new  heronry is going to be? Do  they send scouts out to look  for suitable locations and then  decide among themselves  where it is going to be or, do  the wise old elders say this is  where it's going to be and the  rest go along with their  decision? And do they all  build their nests at the same  time or, do they sit around  waiting for someone else to  take the initiative?  I saw one old bird up there,  and I don't know whether it  was male or female, acting in  a very un-bird-like manner.  He/she was in a fir tree where  there was no nest and if you  can imagine a bird doing this,  he/she was lying horizontally  along a branch of this tree  looking down at me with his  big yellow eyes. I really had  to laugh even though 1 know  birds and animals in general  don't like being laughed at,  but he looked so strange lying  outstretched like that and I  cannot figure out how he ever  managed to get himself into  that position. I did manage to  get a picture of him directly  below so if it comes out at  least I will have the evidence  to back up my statements.  I wondered afterwards if he  was acting as a lookout. If  so, he didn't do a very good  job, at least by my standards.  Maybe he knew something I  didn't know and come to think  of it, I think he almost certainly did. I think perhaps he told  his fellow herons not to be too  concerned about the strange  person and his dog wandering  around below. Regardless,  none of the birds left their  nests on my behalf so everybody was happy, I got my  pictures and the birds were  happy too.  There were lots of broken  eggs lying around on the  ground, some from last year  but most of them from this  year by the look of them.  I am not at all sure what this  means as I did not see any  young birds or at least I don't  think I did. As all the birds  were sitting on their nests,  it was impossible to tell  whether they were banded or  not.  It seems strange to me that  so little is known about this  relatively common bird. Until  the Canadian Wildlife Service  authorized the study of great  blue herons in 1977, practically nothing was known about  them. The study is now  complete but unofficially I  suppose it still goes on.  Trouble is there seems to be  no kind of follow up and  anyone seeing or finding anything which may be of interest  to the powers that be is left on  a limb with nowhere to go.  Unfortunately, these nests  are under quite a lot of  pressure right now and  although no work has been  done close enough to disturb  them yet, just how long this  situation can continue is hard  to say. It is really nice to  know that there are people out  there, thoughtful people, who,  when they first saw these  nests during the course of  their duties, reported their  discovery, reported it to the  appropriate authorities and  were able to at least put a  temporary hold on the situation. Just how long this  situation can last remains to  be seen but I have a feeling  that these great blue herons  are once again going to have  to send their scouts out to  look for pastures new after  this nesting season is over,  all in the name of the so-called  progress of the human species. 1  2  3  4  1  6  6  7  6  '  10  n  12  13  Crossword  by Jo Melnyk  ACROSS                                     DOWN  1   River                             1   Suffix  5   Closes                            2   Face  10   Feminine Name              3   Miss Fitzgerald  14 River                             4   Narrated  15 Channel                         5   Quiet  16 And Others (Lat.)            6   Spanish Queen  17 Machine                       7   Alberta (Abbr.)
