March 25, 1980  Volume 34, Number 12  Parents discuss Chatelech future  Upwards of 70 concerned parents crowded into the Library at  Chatelech Secondary School on Thursday evening, March 20, to  discuss the future of secondary education for their youngsters from  Roberts Creek to Halfmoon Bay.  At issue was the recent request of Sechelt parents that their  children receive their entire secondary education at Chatelech  instead of being bused to Elphinstone for Grades II and 12.  Complicating the situation was the demand made by parents of  Roberts Creek students that their children be allowed to attend  Elphinstone for their Grade 8 and 9 courses instead of being bused to  Chatelech as is the case at present.  Initially it appeared that the    menl   Figures  and  how  they  On a sunny day at Davis Bay, the temptation to horse around is just too great for some.  Two productions this year  Suncoast Players display vigour  by John Burnside  If 1 tell you that the Pender  Drama Group which was  formed recently is generating  enthusiasm you just have to  believe me. I was asked when I  arrived for their meeting, held  in the Madeira Park Legion on  Friday evening, March 21, if I  was arriving as a potential  member or strictly a reporter.  put together a truly first-class  organization which knows  where it wants to go and has  some very good ideas about  how to get there.  Approximately 70 of the  reported 100 members of the  new group were on hand at last  Friday's meeting to hear the  further unfolding of the  group's plans and aspirations.  The first unfolding comprised  of the new name for the group  "Strictly a reporter," I assured the questioner with the  . which was chosen by vote of 73  thought ofthe many meetings I    of the 80 members enrolled at  have to attend and the long,  dark, twisting miles between  my home in Roberts Creek and  Madeira Park. Yet, when the  meeting was over I found that I  had paid my membership and  put my name down to audition  for the group's first production.  Under the presidency of  Duncan Sim backed up by an  enthusiastic and able executive  consisting of Production Manager Richard Tomkies, also in  charge of publicity, Secretary  Doreen Lee, Treasurer Joan  Rae, and Executive Committee  members Gordon Wilson and  Nancy Hardy, the group from  Pender Harbour seem to have  31  the time and after a competition had been held.  The new name, 'non-parochial' as Richard Tomkies  pointed out, is to be Suncoast  Players. The winner of the  competition was Vivian Mc-  Kenzie. The prize was two  tickets to the show of herchoice  in Vancouver and $25 for  expenses. Another prize winner  was Sharon Murray, wife ofthe  owner of Holiday Market in  Madeira Park, who was the  recipient of a bottle of 'real,  imported' champagne for being  the 100th member signed up.  The constitution of the new  society was adopted unanimously andPrcsident Sim told  Virginia McKenzie won the competition to name the  new Pender Harbour Drama Club. Her prize was  tickets to a show of her choice in Vancouver and a  cheque for $25 for expenses.  the meeting that he would be  going to Victoria on Monday  or Tuesday of this week to have  the Society incorporated and to  pursue financing.  On the subject of financing,  Sim told the meeting that he  had been in Vancouver last  week and had called upon the  Executive Director of the  Vancouver Foundation. Prior  to moving to the Sunshine  Coast, Sim had been an executive of the Calgary Community Foundation. He pointed out that the Vancouver  Foundation was an organization administering money  contributed by B.C. Industry  and at the present time was  administering $100,000 per  annum.  During his discussion with  the Executive Director of the  Foundation, Sim reported that  the file on the Bridge View  Community Hall in Delta had  been brought out. Bridge View  had a similar hall to Madeira  Park and the Foundation had  assisted with the financing of a  complete community centre  including a Drop-in Centre for  seniors, a Teen Cottage Youth  Centre, a Child Care Centre,  and a Library.  Sim said that he had held  meetings with various community groups in Pender  Harbour and the concept  presently held by the executive  of the Suncoast Players was for  modifications to the Madeira  Park Community Hall to  provide a worthwhile stage as  well as a complete community  centre in the above pattern.  Publicity Manager Richard  Tomkics re-affirmed that the  Strategy for a Stage, to be 40'  wide and 30' deep and of full  height, had grown into the  concept of a complete community centre. "We've got the  talent," said Tomkies, "we've  got the enthusiasm and we've  got the community together  which is the best thing that can  come out of this whole Society."  Turning to the all-important  subject of the first planned  production of the Suncoast  Players, Tomkies opened the  discussion by informing the  meeting that with 110 members  the Suncoast Players were  already possibly the largest  drama group in B.C.  In the role of Production  Manager, Tomkies told members present that it was the  group's intention to stun the  community with the excellence  of their undertaking. He said  that it had been determined  that the first production should  be first and foremost enter  taining and that it should be  entertainment for the whole  family. One important criterion was that the first production should be of a tried and  trusty play.  The play chosen is that  enduring favourite Arsenic and  Old Lace. The Rev. John  Paetkau was undertaken to  direct this classic and Ronnie  Dunn will be casting director.  Tomkies also said that a  second production, a musical,  was also being planned which  would involve more young  people. The musical Rock and  Roll will involve a minimum of  25 people and is scheduled for  performance just before Christmas. Arsenic and Old Lace will  be presented in the first week of  December.  Special Events Director  Gordon Wilson outlined the  workshops in acting and theatrical techniques which would  be made available and urged  anyone interested in participating in any facet of theatrical work to contact him at 883-  9124.  On behalf of the staff of the  Coast News and the people at  this end ofthe Sunshine Coast,  I would extend the very best of  wishes to the brave and energetic people of Pender Harbour  and the Suncoast Players in all  their undertakings.  March 20 meeting would produce considerable fireworks with  strongly-held views being manifest on the part of both Roberts  Creek and Sechelt parents. "I  intend to get fully out of hand,"  said one prominent Sechelt  business man. "I am extremely  upset."  School Board officials skilfully defused the situation,  however, by their handling of the  meeting. To begin with Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills read a  long eight-page brief entitled  "Response to the Brief on the  Chatelech Senate re the Retention of Grades 11 and 12".  Copies of the School Board  response had only been made  available at the outset of the  meeting.  After Mills had read the  Board's response the meeting  was divided up into discussion  groups. Finally, the meeting  reconvened and a reporter of  each group presented the group's  findings and the School Board  took away the  results  The Board's response as read  by Roy Mills agreed that  Chatelech should become a  Junior Secondary School but  felt that this would not be  possible before the fall of 1983.  Or the other hand the School  Board felt that the relocation of  Roberts Creek students to  Elphinstone would be desirable  in the fall of this year.  Given as reasons for these  findings by the School Board in  their response were the following: "We believe the process  should commence when three  requirements are met: 1. An  adequate number of senior  secondary school students to  provide an acceptable level of  options and instruction to those  options at both Chatelech and  Elphinstone; 2. Adequate staff at  Chatelech to handle the above  senior secondary programme; 3.  Adequate facilities to permit  offering that programme."  Despite the assertion that  projected enrolment statistics  was the least important of the  three requirements the major  part of the School Board's  response was taken up with the  presentation of projected enrol-  dovelailed with Ministry of  Education requirements.  It was apparent, however,  when reports came back from  group sessions that not all  critical voices had been stilled.  "Sechelt has been forced back on  defence," said Chuck Dowman  of Sechelt when he presented his  report.  Dowman also asked who was  responsible for the School Board  response and observed drily,  "We don't expect to get any  answers."  In common with reporters  from other groups, Dowman  observed that the loss of Roberts  Creek students would adversely  affect the situation at Chatelech  and pointed out that the busing  of students affected their ability  to participate in extra-curricular  programmes,  Another concerned Sechell  parent who reported from his  group was Warren McKibbin.  McKlbbin told the meeting that  his group had been unanimously  critical of the short time  available for the study of the  School Board response���a criticism reiterated by other group  spokesmen. McKibbin also said  that the Impact Study proposed  by the School Board should  focus on pupil-teacher ratios and  observed that if Chatelech was  to have fewer students it must  have a richer pupil-teacher ratio.  "If the Roberts Creek students  were to stay at Chatelech,"  observed McKibbin, "Chatelech  and Elphinstone would have  comparable programmes. If  Roberts Creek students begin to  go to Elphinstone the programmes available at Chatelech  will suffer and along with them  every student west of Roberts  Creek will suffer a dilution in  available programmes."  McKibbin pointed out errors  in the School Board response,  specifically that a problem  addressed by Secretary-Treasurer Mills concerning the cost  of providing an enlarged Chatelech with a home economics  room was misleading in that  wiring provision for another  home economics room had been  made al the linn <>f construction.  "The Secretary-Treasurer  tells us thai the problem of small  high schools is one which  exercises Ihe Ministry of  Education every year yet the  School Board seems inlenl on  making Chatelech into another  Pender Harbour High School,"  concluded McKibbin.  A specific challenged by  Secretary-Treasurer Mills in the  Chatelech brief was the saving of  transportation costs. Mills  explained the difference between  miles approved by the Ministry of Education and unapproved miles and concluded:  "We'll save time. We'll save gas.  We'll save the province money,  but I don't think we'll save the  School District very much  money."  Another group reporter, Chris  Caldwell of Sechelt, observed  that tax savings were tax savings  and the money for bus transportation all came out of the same  taxpayers' pocket and made the  point that such costs could only  rise steeply in the foreseeable  future.  After the formal part of the  Please turn to Page Eight.  Warren McKibbin is pictured taking part in the meeting held last Thursday to discuss  the future of Chatelech Secondary School.  Pebble Holdings vs. Hall  Friction in Sechelt  Friction between Robert E.  Bull and Director Stan  Anderson of Pebble Holdings  and Sechelt Alderman Henry  Hall surfaced at the meeting of  the Sechelt Council held on  Wednesday, March 19.  In a letter to Council, the  By Government White Paper  Beachcombers endangered  by John Moore  While the cast and crew of the successful CBC series The  Beachcombers films episodes in the streets of Gibsons, out on the  water the real beachcombers, the log salvors of the Vancouver  Log Salvage District, are worried that they may soon be put out of  business.  The source of their concern is White Paper #8, issued by the  Valuation Branch of the Provincial Ministry of Forests, "for  discussion purposes on proposed log salvage regulation". Though  the White Paper bears the date 'January 1980', most log salvors  did not receive their copies until the beginning of March. The  present deadline set by the Ministry for receiving "the views of all  concerned parties" is March 30, 1980.  Chief among  the  salvors'   if implemented, would reprc-  concerns are changes proposed  ostensibly in response to the  need to make "the recovery of  low grade useable material"  more attractive. These changes  take the form of revisions to the  Schedule of Payments, including an 18% reduction of  the salvors' percentage of the  value of large saw logs and the  introduction of a "rolling three  month average" pricing system.  According to salvors, several of  whom have submitted detailed  analyses of White Paper #8 to  the Coast News, these changes,  sent  a  20-25%  reduction in  income to the permit holder.  Under the present admittedly complex system, it is  extremely difficult for the  salvor to estimate the current  market value of various types  of logs, the base price upon  which his percentage is based.  Under the proposed "rolling  three month average price"  such an estimation would  become impossible. Further,  salvors have observed that  since the inclusion of large  amounts of low grade useable  material must inevitably lower  the "rolling three month average price", the incentive to  recover such material would  actually be decreased.  Among the salvors' other  concerns are proposed changes  covering rights of property in  an indcntifiable log, and tighter  restrictions governing operating hours and equipment  used in log salvage. These and  other concerns will be voiced at  a meeting to be held at 7:00  p.m. March 24, at the Royal  Towers Hotel, 6th & Royal  Avenue, New Westminster,  B.C. The meeting has been  organized by independent log  salvors and will be chaired by  Mike Forrest, a logsalvorfrom  the Fraser River area. Representatives from the Ministry of  Forests are expected to attend.  According to the organizers of  the meeting, considerable difficulty was encountered in  obtaining a mailing list of  currently active log salvors. A  list was finally obtained from  the Valuation Branch of the  principals of Pebble Holdings  accused Alderman Hall of  forcing them to dedicate to  the Village 3.5 acres of Lot 16  between Trail Avenue and  Salmon Drive; to sell to the  Village a number of serviced  lots for $5,000 each on which to  build Hall's proposed Community or Civic Centre. According to the letter from Bull  and Anderson, failure to cooperate with Hall in the  above proposal would cause  them to suffer the dire consequence of having a by-law  passed which would force them  to landscape and maintain a  green belt at their cost.  To add force to his proposal.  Hall said he felt that the  support of all surrounding  residents and a publicity campaign would bring a quick  solution to the cleanup of a  mess that has confronted local  residents for the past three or  more years.  Alderman Hall's rebuttal  was in the form of a letter  drafted by himself on March 18  in which he pointed out the  inaccuracies ofthe Bull-Anderson statemem. He said that the  letter was basically accurate  but badly out of context. His  proposal, he said, was intended  to help the developer put the  property to its highest and best  use  and,  at  the same  time.  Ministry of Forests in Victoria  when the possibility of legal  action was mentioned.  benefit the public.  Hall said that the serviced lot  bid of $5,000 was in the  expectation that the price  would be doubled after bartering 'at arm's length'. Location  of the lots, said Hall, adjacent  to the highway construction  would make them difficult to  sell in any case.  Alderman Hall stated that  the 'blind hatred' of Bull and  Anderson towards him would  require that all his future  dealings with them would have  to be in writing.  Hall then went on to move  thai Pebble Moldings be given  thirty days' registered notice to  clean up ihe right-of-way  according to earlier agreements  made with Council.

The While Paper purports to address  itself to the very real problem ofthe hazard  posed by walerborne debris. A number of  log salvors in this area have observed that  not only is the White Paper ambiguous in  its distinction between worthless debris  and "floating low-grade merchantable  material", but proposed revisions in the  schedule of payments, restrictions on  equipment and operating hours may cause  permit holders to engage in log salvage  only as a casual secondary source of  income or become completely inactive.  If log salvors, for reasons of economic  necessity or resentment at the feeling they  are being made to subsidize the clean-upof  debris they do nothing to create and much  to alleviate, abandon their trade, it is  obvious that the number of floating  hazards and the amount of money  expended to remove them will increase  dramatically. With the new Gibsons  marina proposals before various levels of  government, it is worth noting that it  makes very little difference whether the log  that holes your boat is "merchantable" or  not.  Some serious questions  In common with several other people at  the meeting held to discuss the future of  Chatelech Secondary School last Thursday, we were left with a vague sense of  dissatisfaction and a few unanswered  questions. If the School Board arc now  foreseeing a full secondary school at  Chatelech in the next few years, what were  they doing trying to expand Elphinstone  by four apparently unnecessary classrooms this Spring?  Is it possible that the Board's actions in  tnc recent past and possibly in the future  have more to do with what the Superintendent of Schools describes as the  optimum size for a high school? Are the  Superintendent and Secretary-Treasurer  more concerned with what other bureaucrats deem to be desirable than they are  with the expressed wishes ofthe parents of  the Sunshine Coast Communities? Why  was so little lime given for the study of the  School Board response and why did the  authors of it not step forward to answer the  questions of the community?  The meeting was an admirable exercise  in management techniques but that it was  equally an exercise in democracy is highly  debatable. The format utilized seemed  more designed to deflect than to encourage  discussion.  Finally, surely the central statement of  the School Board response, re-iterated by  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills during the  meeting, that it was the School Board's  role to seek the greatestgoodiof the greatest  number must be challenged. It implies that  some children, in this case any child  between Davis Bay and Halfmoon Bay,  must be sacrificed for the majority. It is the  approach used by Josef Stalin when he  decided to liquidate 20 million Ukranians  for the benefit of 200 million others and to  hear it trotted from the lips of educators is  not encouraging.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  iniber  FIVE YEARS AGO  More than 350 people attended the  public event honouring Dr. Hugh Inglis  on the occasion of his retirement last  week. Dr. Inglis and his wife were  presented with a beautifully carved  'key to the city', the work of Hans  Peterson. The key was fashioned from  the word of the original pilings of  Gibsons Landing Wharf.  A masked gunman robbed Leo  Hubel, owner of the Cedars Inn, of $92  at gunpoint last week.

Gibsons Council will now be invited.  Elphinstone Secondary School holds  its firstannual Homecoming for former  graduates.  Peggy Connor reports in the Coast  News from Halfmoon Bay that a 33-  pound ling cod was caught by eight-  year old Kit Moffat last week.  Frances Fleming has tendered her  resignation as principal of Pender High  School this week, pending a move to  Vancouver.  Eric Sydney Clayton, aged 74,  founder of Sechelt's Shop Easy store,  passed away on March 22.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  A meeting of SO people heard a  description of a gravel project and also  objections to it at a meeting last week.  The project is in the Gower Point area.  Contracts totalling $108,031 were  awarded for school construction. Work  includes additions to Elphinstone High  School, Trail Bay Junior High and  Halfmoon Bay Elementary School.  District Provincial Sanitarian suggests that Gibsons Council must  consider the garbage question.  "Throwing the garbage question onto  the laps of village councillors is  nothing new.

Following his tour of duty along this coast from 1792  to 1794, Captain George Vancouver named the great land mass he had  circumnavigated Quadra and Vancouver's Island, in honor of the  Spanish explorer and diplomat with whom he had negotiated atNootka.  Valdes Island, at the southern end of Seymour Narrows,  commemorated another Spaniard, who had sailed much ofthe inside  passage in the company of Vancouver. In 1903, Quadra's name was  removed from the large island and used to replace that of his  countryman. Here the Union Steamships vessel SS Cheslakee, named  after the famous Nimpkish chief, is approaching a dock on the eastward  side of the island still at the time referred to by residents and travellers as  Valdes.

Peterson  ���s*m*mw��  I'm afraid that my car is  something of a joke among my  friends. It's nothing newfor me  to have a car which impresses  no one. During my first 20  years in Canada I drove a  bizarre collection of recycled  vehicles.  There was the Morris Oxford  which was my first car. I  crumpled the front fender  turning right on a Montreal  street when the driver's door  flew open and I collided with a  parked truck before I could get  back upright behind the wheel.  I did an inept do-it-yourself  fixit job which included painting the fender after dark only to  get up in the morning to find I  had succeeded in tying in  uneasy bondage two of the  most hideously clashing shades  of green imaginable. I drove it  for a couple of years.  Then there was the 1949  Morris Minor convertible  which shed its canopy in a  thunderstorm just west of  Montreal Island exactly one  hour and 20 miles after I had  bought it. I drove valiantly on  towards Toronto but the motor  seized in the middle ofthe night  in Trenton and I abandoned it  in disgust.  I drove an old blue Pontiac in  the first years of the sixties. It  was very old and distinguished  itself by shedding a right front  wheel while I was chauffering  my future father-in-law. He did  his best, I am sure, to dissuade  his daughter from the marriage  as a result of the incident. I  mean, what kind of a son-in-  law let's the wheels fall off his  car?  Later, I set off for the Yukon  from Montreal driving a snazzy  little Riley One-Point-Five.  Very sporty. It was somewhat  hampered on the cross-Canada  drive by being almost buried  under the most incredible  mound of personal belongings  including sewing machines and  other weighty freight under  which sporty little English  tourers were never intended to  labour.  Unfortunately, also, during  its sojourn in Montreal the  poor little Riley had had its  undercarriage quite rotted  away from the Montreal winters and going up the 1,200  miles of Alaska Highway I'm  afraid the Riley acted as much  like a vacuum cleaner as an  automobile.  The thought of driving it  around in a Yukon winter with  all those holes in the floor  caused me to sell the Riley in  Whitehorse and 1 bought a  1960 Volkswagen bug. Does  anyone remember those old  Volkswagens? The hopeless  ineptitude of their heating  system. I drove around at 60  Musings  John Burnside  April Fool's  Day Run  by John Burnside  below zero with a window  which I couldn't persuade to  give me more than orange sized  clear space. It was nose to  windscreen driving, I'm afraid.  Then there was the Volkswagen bus which just failed to  get myself and wife and child  and my mother back to Dawson City on a drive from  Montreal. We all wound up  hitchhiking to our destination  in a variety of vehiclesand with  a variety of drivers. It was as  difficult to co-ordinate as the  Normandy Landings, I am  convinced.  After that there was a Cresta  Vauxhall which required that I  stop every time I crossed a  Yukon creek to replenish the  radiator.  Next was the old GMC half  ton with the homemade camper  in the back which was home  during the summer of 1966  including several weeks on the  Sunshine Coast. It had to have  a quart of oil added every 75  miles and the whole thing was  victimized by another Burnside  paint job, this time the most  absurd powder blue on the  battered old truck with its tired  old plywood camper.  The old truck limped into  Fernie on Labour Day 1966  and I traded it in for a  Borgward Isabella, for God's  sake. I don't know much about  Borgward Isabellas except that  they were obsolete years before  I bought one. When I drove it  into gas stations the service  attendants would walk around  it in amazement and laugh  outright if I asked if they had  parts for it.  I nursed it to Montreal in the  summer of 1967, nonetheless,  where it died coincident with  my arrival. I bought a new car  after that. An Austin Marina  and for 2,400 miles I exulted in  newness. Then there came a  night, I swear, when I hit a  ditch in it at 65 miles an hour,  somersaulted and rolled it and  drove home without front or  rear windscreens and without  changing gears.  Later that same car came to  its end in the Spring of 1968  when it rolled down a 30-foot  bank into the Elk River near  Fernie at the time of spring  spate.  In August of 1968 I made my  final pass of six down the  Alaska Highway. I drove it,  complete with wife and three  children, in a 1954 Chevrolet  which I found under a bush in  Dawson City. It was a rough  passage down the Alaska  Highway at a top speed of 35  miles per hour. I thought the  old car was having a hard time  with the gravel highway until I  reached the pavement and  noticed   no   appreciable   dif  ference.  An old Rambler brought me  first to the Sunshine Coast, to  be replaced by another Volkswagen which blew up near  Cemetery corner on Highway  101.  Another Austin Marina  which blew up while struggling  up the Osoyoos Hill on Highway No. 3 and again 1 decided it  was time for a new car.  That one 1 have still, The  battered, rotting blue Datsun  B210 that carries me around  the roads ofthe Sunshine Coast  at the present time has served  me valiantly but now the  debate rages as to how long it  will be before the driver's seat  falls through the floorboards  and those who know it and  borrow it refer to it as The  Kennel. Not only is there the  omnipresent odour of those  canine occupants who occasionally spend long hours in  the car, but there is the  exuberant evidence ofthe work  of young Meg before she had  learned to differentiate between dog bones and the  upholstery of her master's car.  I suppose 1 should get rid of  it, but almost 100,000 miles  down the road it runs well and  I've grown accustomed to its  disgrace. And with my record  of automobile eccentricities, 1  am immune to the scorn of  passing motorists.

A haunting  echo of former days and  previous hurried pinch-hit  columns echoes once more in  the editorial wasteland.  Where's George? (Haunting  echoes must be imagined at this  point.)  Ah, but at least this week 1  have a theory. Matthews is in  hiding, friends. Somewhere in  the bowels of Victoria in a  cellar room without windows,  without telephone, and with  many chains on the door,  crouches the recalcitrant columnist.  The reason? He has learned  through the grapevine that  Fitness Franny Berger is prepared to make the April Fool's  Day Run to Sechelt for a third  consecutive year, but only on  the condition that George  Matthews, the man whose  machismo boasting led us all  into this masochistic trundling  up and down Highway 101 in  the first place, also took part.  *  #  *  *  *  *  #  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *****************************  Spring is like  a perhaps hand  Spring is like a perhaps hand  (which comes carefully  out of Now here) arranging  a window, into which people look (while  people stare  arranging and changing placing  carefully there a strange  thing and a known thing here) and  changing everything carefully  spring is like a perhaps  Hand in a window  (carefully to  and fro moving New and  Old things, while  people stare carefully  moving a perhaps  fraction of flower here placing  an inch of air there) and  without breaking anything.  Some of you will remember  the details. In the Spring of  1977 Fran Berger was the Coordinator of the Fitness Programme and in that role was  writing exuberant press releases for the local papers  extolling the virtues of exercise  and good health. Enter Matthews, ungallantly casting aspersions on jogging little old  ladies in blue tennis shoes,  waxing eloquent in defence of  the enthusiastic quaffing of ale,  and trailing defiant clouds of  cigarette smoke in his wake. La  Berger responded to the challenge and threw down a  gauntlet of her own.  Blue tennis shoes or not, she  said or in words to that effect, I  am prepared to run from  Gibsons to Sechelt if Matthews  will. Matthews was caught,  hooked, there was no escape.  There was some considerable  offstage whining but the die  was cast and the run was on.  About 30 people joined them  and the lirsi Annual April  Fool's Day Run from Gibsons  to Sechelt was underway. You  may remember how they finished that run, we carried a  picture in the Coast News.  There came the beaming  Matthews and Berger hand in  hand, tied for second last in the  finishing field but running into  Sechelt nonetheless. It was the  perfect, non-competitive ending. Only now, however, can  the true story of that fairy tale  ending be told.  The two of them had run side  by side all the way from the  Sunnycrest Mall, where Matthews had gallantly waited for  his opponent after she made  her customary late arrival. As  they trotted past the Indian  Reserve in Sechelt the outwardly amiable Matthews  clutched the hand of the  defenceless girl trotting at his  side and through clenched teeth  hissed: "Berger, if you sprint  ahead now and beat me, I'll  murder you."  Last year despite all cajoling  and encouragement Matthews  left town until the run was over.  Apprised of the fact that the  race and the callenge were on  again, Matthews has obviously  gone in to total, paranoid  seclusion and is even at this  moment in his secret hideaway  wailing, "No, no, I don't want  to run. Please Fran, don't make  me run."  Let's leave that quivering  hulk of a once fine man in  decent privacy, I mean how  much human debasement can  we stand to contemplate, and  turn our attention to the run  itself.  This   year   again,   as   the  advertising has foretold, the  police have given us permission  for the Gibsons-Sechelt April  Please turn to Page Three. Letters to the Editor  Strange thank you for retiring executive  Editor:  It was a strange thank you  note that the retiring executive  and hard working Community  Club members got in the March  18 local papers, apparently the  words of the new rjublicity  officer, "nitpickers, negativity,  bitching, whine."  The papers say, "For further  information contact Richard  Tomkies." How did he learn it  all in his first general meeting?  The report gives the message  that the hall is supported by  taxes. That is not so. The hall  was built by volunteer labour  just over 30 years ago and has  been supported by volunteer  work ever since. That is why it  is important to its very life to  have people join the membership and help put on fund  raising entertainments. The  Community Club gets its funds  from rentals, memberships,  spring bazaar, May Day celebrations, Fishermen's Homecoming smorgasbord and  dance, other dances, a few  donations and grants.  1 notice that the report states  that the hall attracts the  Fishermen's Homecoming.  Well, that is part of the  Community Club programme  and was started by Ed Lowe 15  years ago and is an annual  event. The spring bazaar was  started by Muriel Cameron  about 30 years ago. The Bingo  was started by Doris andHelen  Edwardson when the Club was  nearly broke.  The membership for last year  was 220. Some of the members  are housebound and pay dues  only to help finance the Club,  which attitude we have appreciated. The Bingo is not a  sellout as stated. Sometimes the  attendance is very poor. The  Community Club workers have  always been grateful to the  people who come to play.  Many of these come for the sole  purpose of supporting the  Community Club and not  because they love the game.  Bingo has always been a worry  because in order to keep the  license, 15% of the money must  be kept for the Club.  The people who have been  working for the hall certainly  know how big it is and how  much it costs to heat it, still, the  main floor is none too big when  it comes to smorgasbords and  dances, and the kitchen is  cramped when a big crowd  comes to Bingo.  The library is part of the  Community Club and is under  its care. The Community  Club's right stage dressing  room went into the library with  the understanding that the  space would still be used as a  dressing room when needed.  Somehow both doors got  closed over without permission  of a general meeting or even an  executive meeting. According  to the rules any contemplated  change in structure should  come before a general meeting  to find out if it meets with  membership approval. The  membership has the final say.  Any expenditure of over $500  or sale of anything which cost  over $500 must be approved by  the general meeting.  Most of the groups using the  hall do not pay anything. A few  pay a little, not enough to cover  the cost of the heat. This is why  they are asked to help put on  money-making entertainments. As lor membership, it is  a club and must have members.  Does it not seem reasonable  thai the ones who use it should  pay the small fee?  The report states that the new  president came and found this  large hall five years ago. Did it  grow like a mushroom and now  is waiting to be picked? No. It  grew bit by bit or nit by nit from  the hard work of past  executives and other Club  members, people who always  looked ahead and kept the hall  as an asset that the community  deserves. They didn't all quit in  despair, some of them have  died while still on the job, last  year, James, the year before,  Kay, a few years before that,  John. We remember with  gratitude their hard and  dedicated work.  The executive is never all  changed the same year. This  year it is composed of half new  members and half who were on  last year or longer. The term of  office is three years. A person  can get off sooner if necessary  but is not supposed to stay  longer.  How is it that the value ofthe  hall including land has shrunk  to a quarter million dollars?  Last year it was estimated that  the hall and contents, without  land, was worth half a million.  Check the contents and add it  up. You people know what it  costs per foot to build. The hall  is in good repair and there is  some money in the bank.  The reason the general  meetings are not well attended  is because most everything has  been decided by the executive  and there is little of interest left  for the members. Some good  reports on what we got for our  money and others on  achievements, or training or  cultural programmes would  help.  I expect that I will be allowed  to add'the intitials N.P. after  my name for "nitpicker".  Vi Tyner  Uninsured and unhappy  Editor:  How many owners of old  cedar frame houses are being  denied any .kind of fire insurance protection? Offers to  upgrade possible fire problem  areas notwithstanding we have  been turned down by four local  insurance firms including IC  BC. We have insured this house  continuously since February  1954 until now. It certainly  makes for no security or peace  of mind in one's old age!  Would it really break the bank  for the insurance firms if they  shared out among them the  relatively few old homes that  they consider poor risks? All  houses are potential fire risks  which is surely the name ofthe  insurance game. It seems most  unfair to deny protection to a  small group because of slightly  higher  risk  to the insurers!  Especially we think ICBC  should be willing to offer some  kind of coverage, even partial,  instead of just casting us off  completely! If insurance is that  desperate for what they hope  are low risks only, we say if they  ca n't stand the heat they should  get out of the kitchen for all the  use they are.  Disgustedly,  Lucy Barnhart  By-pass elsewhere  Editor:  About the so-called bypass...anyone who has ever  been up Gilmour Road must  realize if a truck can't negotiate Granthams Hill it hasn't a  hope on Gilmour!  Are you aware folks that  there is an already drafted road  plan in the works for a major  throughway, not only from  Langdale to Gilmour etc., but  to continue on just below the  power line, all the way to  Sechelt and points north?  Are you happy to GIVE  away another WIDE STRIP  below the power lines WIDE  STRIP? And to have all the  delights of a freeway freewheeling it through your water  supply, your fresh air, your  home, your view, peace, quiet  and security?  Let them as far as Gilmour  and the rest will follow all too  fast.  Could someone understanding about natural water flow  tell the highways that while  roads running approximately  up and down a hill usually do  little harm, diagonal roads  across the face of a hillside  cause irreparable and inestimable damage.  Some ofthe world's loveliest  old properties are being despoiled. It breaks one's heart.  Put the by-pass elsewhere.  V.I. Green  Heart Fund thank you  Editor:  May we have your cooperation one more time this  year? We would like to publicly  thank you for your cooperation in our recent appeal  for funds for the Sunshine  Coast Unit of the B.C. Heart  Foundation. Our community  from Langdale to Roberts  Creek responded with heartwarming generosity, and we  want to thank them. Coast  Cable Vision gave us good  coverage on Channel 10;  Nelson Moore was our  excellent projectionist when we  showed films; Bill Edney spoke  up for us in his weekly column;  the merchants dug deep for us;  Jim Johnston of the Regional  Board was most helpful; and  we greatly appreciate the  merchants in the Sunnycrest  Mall who allowed us to set up  our information table for two  weekends. Speaking of this  table, it was only for  information and educational  purposes, not a separate  canvass for funds.  Mrs. Jean Longley, the  campaign chairman, expressed  her thanks to the ladies who  manned the table in the Mall,  and those who were responsible for each of the areas  canvassed, and for their teams  who "walked and knocked",  with a lovely afternoon tea at  her home on February 29.  Some of you were unable to  attend���but we hope to see you  next year!  Do figures interest you? Our  merchants donated $1,441 and  you housholders contributed  $4,022.90.

Tisdale and other nearby  communities are planning  celebrations to suitably observe  the occasion. Through the  medium of your newspaper, we  hope to make any former  residents of our area, who ndw  make their homes in your area,  aware of these celebrations.  Tisdale, the Land of Rape  and Honey, is planning a  homecoming that will take  place on June 30 and July 1.  Registration will be on June 30  and the program for July 1 will  include an ecumenical church  service, a community breakfast  and other such events. Special  entertainment is being planned  for young people.  More information about our  celebration can be obtained by  former district residents by  writing to the Tisdale and  District Homecoming Committee, Box 1090, Tisdale,  Saskatchewan. S0E 1T0.  Other area celebrations  include those for Eldersley on  August 2; Golburn at their fair  on August 6; Sylvania on July  26 and 27; Connaught at the  fair on July 29 and 30; Star City  on July 4,5,6 and 7; Ridgedale  on August 2 and 3; McKauge  on August 2 and 3; and New  Osgoode and Forester on July  31.

Any assistance your newspaper may be in spreading the  word of these activities would  be greatly appreciated.  Yours truly,  Rosemary O'Bertos,  Telethon  Hockey  Editor:  The Trail Bay "Mailers" and  RCMP "Mumps" hockey clubs  would like to take this opportunity to thank all those  residents ofthe Sunshine Coast  who so generously contributed  to the second annual Variety  Club Telethon benefit hockey  game held at the Sunshine  Coast Arena on February 16,  1980. Although the RCMP  "Mumps" gave the "Mailers" a  short lesson on how the game  of hockey is really played by  winning the contest 2-1, the  real winners are the underprivileged and handicapped  children in British Columbia.

Coast News, March 25,1980  Wastrels of Cinnamon River  Part V  "You're not going to believe  this, byes. You know that new  kid on the gang, Danny. They  give him the room next to Pat's.  This Danny, he's got a record  player like yours but only  maybe three records. He plays  those goddamn tunes over and  over again from the moment he  moves in. Pat, he's owly  enough already without any  more excuses. He jumps up and  grabs that bloody great bayonet olT the wall. I'm scared  pisslcss he's going next door  and murder the poor little  bugger. Instead ol thai, he  starts in carving on the bloody  wall. It's just a couple of sheets  olbcaverboard and Orban goes  through it like a goddamn  beaver. Pretty soon he's got like  a porthole between his room  and the kid's. He sticks his head  through. 'You either turn that  effing thing off and keep it off,'  he says, 'or I'm going to be  doing some carving on you!'  You never heard a gramophone  go dead so fast in your life. It  was kind of funny in a way but  it was kind of frightenin' too!  Orban sounded like he meant it  anil his eyes were right crazy. I  don't think I'll be doin' any  drinkin' with him again!"  "Figure the kid will report  him?" asks Al.  "Not a chance. He's too  scared to breathe. He moved  his gear to an empty room  down the other end ofthe shack  but the poor bugger's still  afraid to play his gramophone  even there!"  . Pat Orban's disposition does  not improve. But .low he lapses  into a sullen silence, performing his work mechanically;  answering only when spoken to  and sometimes not even then.  He's retired into some solitary  confinement of his own to  fester and rankle. The guy has  been a friend of sorts and we  hope he snaps out of it. But the  portents arc not favourable. He  is like a smouldering fuse.  Annie Mclntyre has been  away on holiday during much  of this period. Now she returns,  looking more delectable than  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ever. I am still sporadically  escorting nice-but-naive Sylvia  to dances and shows but on my  first re-encounter with Annie,  my illicit passion for her flares  up anew. Once again, our paths  keep crossing along the inevitable roads of Cinnamon  River. She makes no secret of  the fact that she likes mc and I  suppose, my own infatuation is  obvious. She begins haunting  my dreams again on a regular  basis. But we are prisoners of  the proprieties.  Then one day, I meet her  doing her shopping at the  town's only store. She looks, as  usual, excruciatingly desirable  to my obsessed eyes. "Listen,"  she says surprisingly, "are you  going lo be at the Legion  tonight?"  "Sure, I guess so," I say.  "Well, why don't you meet  me there around eight? Sandy's  working afternoon shift and  I'm sick and tired of sitting  home. We can talk, you know.  That is, if you don't mind  having a few drinks with an old  married lady."  "Christ, no," I assure, "but  won't Sandy mind?"  "Hell, he knows I get bored.  Anyway, it's a public place.  We'll just meet purely by  chance. I've been there by  myself before."  "That's a date, then," I  manage to say. Wow, is it ever!  At this precise point in time, I  don't give a damn about  possible consequences. My  wildest erotic fantasies seem on  the verge of coming true.  Little Al and Jerry look  askance when 1 tell them.  "Jasus, bye, you're playing with  dynamite there!" concludes the  Maritimer. I guess he's right  but I didn't set anything up.  Events seem to be moving of  their own volition and I'm  feeling just crazy enough to go  with the flow. However, I ask  Jerry and Al if they'll sit with us  awhile, for appearances' sake.  They agree. They're getting a  big, vicarious boot out of the  whole business.  Thus it verges, my first  unlikely date with off limits  Annie Mclntyre. Al, Jerry and  I, hit the Legion around 7:00  o'clock and take up residence  at a remote and inconspicuous  table. Annie arrives shortly,  looking exceedingly fetching in  a green dress and joins us. I try  to act nonchalant but her  nearness is a heady tonic  indeed. Wc Iradc a bit of casual  conversation. Alter a bit, Jerry  and Al excuse themselves and  join some other yard crew  members. 'There go our chap-  eroncs," remarks Annie knowingly. Over several beers, our  talk grows more personal.  Annie had grown up in a  remote Ontario township  where her father ran a dry-  goods store. Sandy was a long  time family friend and despite a  15 year age difference, they had  drifted into a parentally-approved marriage. The arrangement was a comfortable one if  not exactly a love match.  "Sandy was solid, you know. A  good bet. He'd worked on the  Coast before and he was always  talking it up. Promised to bring  me out here and he did. But  now, here I am stuck in another  small town. I'd like to see a bit  of city life. I keep getting this  feeling that everything's passing me by. I sure could use a  little excitement."  She seems to be fishing for  suggestions and I am almost  feeling daring enough to offer a  couple. I have torrid visions of  clandestine trysts in Vancouver. I'm on the verge of  saying something impulsive  when the door bangs open. It's  three ex-army types from the  Rod and Gun Club. They  shamble over to the last available seats and begin talking  loudly. "Guess we fixed that  smartass sonofabitch!" says  one of them.  Pretty soon, Little Al, who's  sitting next to them, comes  back over. "Listen, man," he  says, "you know what's hap  pened? Pat Orban got pissed  and started running his bike  around the townsite again.  Those guys claim they roughed  him up, threw his chopper in a  gully and told him to either  cool it or get the hell out of  town!"  'The stupid bastards!" I say.  "He was in a dirty-enough  mood already without this.  Christ only knows what he'll do  now."  We are not left wondering  for long. A few minutes later,  the door literally explodes open  and Pat Orban charges into the  bar. All the pressures have let  loose in him at once. He's  brandishing the naked bayonet. His hair is wild and his eyes  (one of which is blackening) are  wilder. "All right, you suckers!"  he snarls. "I'm going to cut  your effing guts out for that!"  It is as though an unwanted  Western movie were happening  practically in our laps. Annie  huddles against me, all proprieties forgotten. "Oh, God!"  she gasps.  Orban moves purposefully  towards the table where the  three self-appointed vigilantes  are sitting. They haven't been  expecting this and cower in  their chairs. Now he is standing  directly in front of the table,  razor-sharp weapon glittering  in the light. "All right, which  one of you sonofabitches is  going to be first?" he asks. He  has obviously taken complete  leave of his senses. He waves  the bayonet under the closest  man's chin and backs him  terrified against the wall.  Orban's heavy breathing is  clearly audible as he moves the  point ofthe bayonet ever closer  to his intended victim's throat.  He sounds like some run to  earth animal. Bloodshed looks  inevitable. Annie, gone white  as a sheet, has my hand in a  death grip and is squeezing so  hard, it hurts. This certainly  isn't the sort of excitement she  was alluding to earlier. The  whole bar has gone silent in the  face of this deadly tableau. No  one has a clue in hell what to  do.  To be continued.

Music Scene  by Mike Evans  Most bands that play at  major fucntions have the nerve  to charge $600 or more for their  services. Six hundred dollars?  That works out to $150 an  hour! Just for a bunch of  loonies strutting about making  a racket. I mean, how hard can  it be? Like the BTO song says:  "Buy a second hand guitar/  Chances are you're going far/  Wc like to work at nothing all  day." Simple as that. Or is it?  The average rock guitarist  started hacking away in his  teens. And in the days of  meagre or no allowances and  sparse summer jobs at $1.25 an  hour the much-needed $150 for  the most modest of equipment  was hard to come up with. But  the money was found somehow  (syn.: "parents") and at last  there it was: a Simpsons Sears  special and a 10 watt amplifier.  Never mind, it was good  enough to learn on.  If you practised hard every  day, within two years you were  competent enough to form a  band. You and your friend  played guitar and he knew a  guy who had some drums and  could borrow a microphone  and brought a long a guy who  knew a little about bass and on  and on until somehow a  consistent assemblage of un-  likelies called themselves a  band.  Any problems thus far encountered pale before the  biggest problem of all: a place  to practise. A youthful rock  band is not a pleasing thing to  listen to. Especially if you're a  parent who hates rock and roll  when it's played right. How  does one convince the family  authorities that this blare of  discords and missed beats is  actually music? Nothing stops  the budding guitarist��� threats  of artistic infringement, not  eating, and free lawn-cutting  for 15 weeks (clincher) finally  succeed. Yes, the family will  weekly donate 6 to 8 hours of  sanity for the cause. Now all  you have to do is memorize the  words and music to fifty songs  and get over stagefright....  I'll dispense with all the  details of forming bands, losing  members, adding members,  playing for free ANYWHERE,  and all that goes along with  gaining the experience needed  to play semi-professionally.  Let's just say it has taken years  of frustration and practice to  get to the point where Legions  and such will hire you.  Now the biggest obstacle in  your way is the high cost of  equipment. The average guitarist has approximately $4,000  invested in personal equipment and an additional $1,000  tied up in band-owned equipment such as the P.A. system  (for vocals). In professional  bands these figures are much  higher. It is not unusual for a  professional P.A. to cost  $10,000 to $20,000.  And don't forget band rehearsals. Three two-hour sessions a week is the absolute  minimum in order to keep old  songs tight and bring new songs  along. This doesn't count your  daily personal practice schedule.  Lastly, the typical Friday-  Saturday engagements are  actually Thursday-Friday-Saturday-Sunday engagements.  All of Thursday night is spent  packing up equipment, transporting it to the dance hall, and  setting it up again. Friday  afternoon the sound has to be  checked, Friday night you play.  Saturday night you play.  Sunday you tear the whole  thing down and transport it  back to the practice room and  set it all back up again. It has to  be set up again because you're  practising Monday night.

Phone: 435-7750  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: Planetary configurations indicate a highly  emotional week ahead. Planet  of relationships Venus opposes  unpredictable Uranus and  squares impulsive Mars promising unexpected involvement with others. It's a time of  lovers' spats, quarrels, misunderstandings and separations. A Mars-Uranus contact  warns against reckless driving  during this accident prone  period. The Full Moon in Libra  encourages these conditions by  bringing people together for  debates and decisions.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Full Moon highlights relations with others, partnerships, alliances, contracts and  agreements. Close associate  may announce long-overdue  decision. Loved one will be in  the mood to question your  intentions. Check impulsive  spending or urge to gamble  next weekend. New romantic  or social interest starting now  means big drain on savings  later.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Lunar position accents  health matter, employment  scene, daily tasks and rewards  for recent hard work. Coworker will display strange  behaviour at weekends. Practical joke at jobsite may  backfire. Last chance to use  increased charm and personality before Venus leaves your  sign. May 16 birthdays should  keep safe distance from opposite sex Saturday night.  GEMINI (May 21-.lune 21)  Full Moon spotlights fun,  laughter, romance, being with  friends, having a good time.  You'll feel urge to gamble,  speculate or take big risk.  Creative endeavour attracts  pleasing responses. Child in  your life is noisy and loveable.  Secret matter or infidelity is  exposed next weekend. Driving, short journeys need extra  care.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Moon position coincides  with noisy but happy domestic  activities. Next Saturday is best  day of the month for party at  your place. Ignore budget and  phone friends. Expect a de-'  cision regarding housing, rental or real estate transaction.  Acquaintances' surprise weekend announcement could affect  your own long range plan.  Avoid argument over money  during group discussion.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Full Moon accents local  communications, trips and  journeys. Final meeting sums  up what yousecretlysuspected.  Avoid emotional outburst,  hasty correspondence or rude  phone call. Sudden domestic  upset may slow down rate of  present progress. What you  have achieved this month could  be lost next weekend. August  18 birthdays should control  temper all week.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Lunar position emphasises  discussions over money and  possessions. It s time to accumulate and hoard that which  is rightfully yours. Close friend  or loved one will support your  miserly moves. Expect sudden  news of relative or events far  away. Resist political or philosophical one-upmanship next  weekend.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  Full Moon in your sign finds  you sociable, diplomatic and  anxious to settle local dispute.  Everyone agrees role of peacemaker suits you. Weekend  surprise is linked to someone  else's financial crisis. Acquaintance may swear he never  borrowed a cent. Too bad!

Attention is focused on person  confined to home or hospital.  Looks like it's your turn to visit  forsaken relative or neighbour.  Companion or loved one may  display unusual or rebellious  behaviour next weekend. Scor-  pios getting married Saturday  face a life of sudden gains and  losses.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec. 21)  Lunar position accents affairs of friend, acquaintance or  local group. Meetings or discussions you attend may become over-emotional, noisy  and disorderly. Those employed will hear of surprise  resignations or controversial  dismissals. Advice is to keep  personal opinions to yourself.  Medical enquiry reveals unexpected results.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan. 19)  Full Moon finds you sensitive about your honour, position and level of achievement.  Chances are your past reputation will be discussed publicly.  Don't be afraid to defend your  recent actions. Social or romantic scene is subject to weird  weekend experiences. Liaison  with stranger is irresponsible  but memorable.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Moon position highlights  religion, philosophy, higher  learning and plain common  sense. Seems what you've  always believed in still generates confidence. Prepare for  emotional long distance news  concerning friend or relative.  Someone close will have too  much to say regarding how you  balance personal ambitions  with domestic responsibilities.  Tell unexpected visitors the  truth next weekend.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)  Full Moon draws attention  to other people's money, possessions or feelings. Expect  definite answer regarding  debts, taxes, insurance or joint  financial venture. Local journey, letter or phone call is  source of next weekend's  disruption. Brother, sister or  neighbour presents unusual  proposition. Co-worker will be  noisy, outspoken and uncooperative. Off the shelf  by John Moore  In lieu of a review this week, I  can only offer my explanation  of why there is no review...we  moved house this week, which  is to say that we moved lock,  stock and bookshelf out of an  overstuffed one-bedroom a-  partment on the North Shore  and into a now overstuffed  little house in beautiful downtown Gibsons. In the process, I  discovered several things about  myself. First, I'm out of shape.  I've managed to pry my fingers  out of a curl at least enough to  type these pages, but my spine  still has the consistency of a  stale pretzel and my backside  was so sore I had to stand at the  bar for two days.  The other revelation took the  form of characteristics I share  in common with certain small  acquisitive rodents...I'm a  pack-rat. I still have shirts I  hated and never wore when my  mother bought them for me  when I was in junior high  school, I hang onto boots that  are beyond the reach of any  cobbler's magic elves, and 1  never ever throw away any  liece of paper that has words  Ml it.  My stack of scribble-violated  lotcbooks and newsprint can't  compare with Pete Trower's  but it was enough to fill several  boxes. No problem in themselves, but when I started tying  up bundles of old magazines  and newspapers I've been  saving for reasons long forgotten, the whole task began to  look a lot more formidable.  Determined to weed out the  deadwood, I naturally had to  read through most of these  things, trying to find out what  on earth made me squirrel them  away in the first place. I may  never have discovered the  4M0Hal reason, but I inevitably  came up with one just as good  and into the bundles they went.  Then came time to start on  the books. I was more than a  little nervous about taking  them down off the shelves to  begin with, since I'd suspected  that for some time they had  been the sole support of the  walls. Outside of a few ominous  noises as the stresses shifted  and the odd alarming crack in  the plaster, the building survived without serious incident.  Not so myself. Having been  through this a couple of times  before, I knew I was in serious  trouble.  The first time I moved,  someone gave me a large box  that had contained, I think, a  part of a furnace. "Just the  thing for my books," I thought,  stacking them all neatly inside.  After moving everything else  out into the truck, a friend and  I bent over to pick up the box.  The only things that budged  were several vertebrae in my  lower back. It would've taken  at least a fork-lift, possibly a  container hoist, to get if off the  ground. In the end we took  them all out pf the box, stacked  them loosely in the truck, drove  around a corner and spent the  rest of the afternoon carrying  them two and three at a time up  two flights of stairs. "Never  again," I said.  The next time I moved, I  thought I'd go to small boxes.  Lots of boxes, but at least  they'd be easy to move. The  only hitch was that, in the city,  everybody moves at the same  time; the end ofthe month, and  trying to find a supermarket  with a large stock of empty  boxes is like looking for King  Solomon's Mines. Once again,  I wound up flinging them  loosely into the back of a truck,  having run out of string and  boxes, and carrying them in  unwieldy armloads up endless  flights of stairs.  This time, I got smart. I  invested in a ball of string as  long as the Trans-Atlantic  cable and spent every night for  almost a week tying the books  into neat portable 20 pound  bundles, a number of which  broke as they were being  carried, resulting in...Oh well,'  by now you get the dismal  picture. It was instructive, in a  perverse sort of way. I discovered, in the process of  stacking them up, the secret of  how the Great Pyramids were  constructed. For bookworms  worried about their deteriorating sedentary constitutions, a  pair of 20 pound bundles  makes a great cheap alternative  to expensive gymnasium equipment.  As a result of this experience,  I've also observed some things  that may be of interest to  scientists studying DNA and  the origins of life on this planet.  I know they debunked the  theory of spontaneous generation some time ago, but if I  can get some impartial observers up to my place they may  have to rewrite a few textbooks.  I'm certain my books are  reproducing on the sly back  there. I don't know how they're  doing it exactly, whether it's  fission (I've discovered doubles  of a lot of paperbacks) or  sexual reproduction (imagine  the crosses that could result if  they get this far...say William  Shakespeare and Raymond  Chandler. Hamlet, Macbeth  and Julius Caesar become  detective mysteries. Mark  Antony shuffling around in a  battered topcoat, knocking  back slugs of Falernian in seedy  Roman bars...). The possibilities are limitless. All for now.  f  ��                       1  LmWmW  JJfc  wMSLm  ���MMsVta'x....                   mmmmm  m^^mmmmim^r^-lmmmmM  f   M  mf      \m\  'I '             mMm  '        I  i        1  !'  t  j  i  rmm.     --���*��-                                                 f  r22L       im                                                                    I'"  Coast News, March 25, 1980  111!

Terminal City Dance  Now in its fourth year,  Terminal City Dance is a  Vancouver-based modern  dance company. The three  members, Terry Hunter, Karen  Rimmer and Savannah Walling, who share and rotate  artistic and organizational  responsibilities, bring a wealth  of varied experience in theatre,  mime and music to the works  they perform. Works range  from the playful and humorous to the intensely dramatic.  The unexpected is characteristic.  Their successful appearance  Dance workshop  by Gillian Lowndes  Before describing Terry  Hunter's workshop Music and  Movement, I'd like to talk a bit  about the idea behind these  events and to encourage those  people who've been thinking of  doing one to step out and do  this one.  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  Carefree Gardening is not  really so blasted carefree when  it's chore time, but might as  well get it over with if we're to  do any healthy loafing in the  summer.  My friend Dorothy and I  took our first fast sprint  through the garden shops but  not fast enought as I became  beguiled by an array of shiny  new garden implements. They  looked so professional when  compared to the bandaged  flotsam I keep stored in a  broken ice cream pail that I  bought a square handled trowel  and cultivator. The square  handle is to prevent the claw  from turning while in use, (a  problem I had never encountered).  I pounced on the garden with  this well chromed gadget only  to find that it twisted constantly within its square hand-  die. I found this to be exquisitely irritating and liberated the battered ice cream pail  with my ancient equipment.  Did they create a problem in  order to solve it unsuccessfully?  In any case new equipment  makes me feel more efficient,  and look very "Better Homes  and Gardcnsy".  Casey's Country Garden has  been completely remodeled  and looks great and farther  afield the Halfmoon Bay  Milore Nursery was absolutely  charming with two delightfully  sunny young ladies in charge.  Milore's huge greenhouses  were filled to overflowing with  annuals already into their  second leafing o things are  looking good.  Casey's had a small sale of  Primroses past their flowering  but please remember that these  are perennials and they will  certainly bloom again this year  and forever. My purchases  consisted of the new claw and  trowel, bags of peatmoss and  steer manure for top dressing  and some new kind of time-  release fertilizer. Stuff that you  can scatter by hand and it will  work over a period of time  without burning. It was a  pragmatic venture buying all  this practical stuff at the onset  of the season, also not very  inspiring, coming home with  bags of work rather than  gorgeous plants partially in  bloom. It was also an expensive  jaunt and so requires a certain  amount of dedication.  For the bachelor or working  couple who want flowers and a  pretty garden but don't want to  do any work at all I would  reiterate on the subject of  climbing Nasturtiums for gardens, edges, pots, posts and for  general long lasting colour in  poor soil. I would also recommend Calendula, a small  orange or yellow daisy, that is  so at home in our sandy soil by  the sea that it becomes almost a  weed. It is great for cutting and  self-seeding.  I make it a point to keep  these out of my better kept  gardens but they are good in  ditches, around posts and in  neglected areas as are California Poppies. These plants  may all be raised from seed and  they provide an attractive and  spicy break for gardens that  dribble off into forest. These  are also all annuals but given a  decent start they will rampage  on their own and they seem  perennial.  The one sunny day we had, I  spent in the garden. I really  enjoyed the activity, I acquired  a little sun and a few aches and  pains but the garden looks as  though someone cares and I  had a huge feeling of accomplishment. Far greater than  deserved as the highlight ofthe  day was a one hour snooze in  the sun within the wafting  fragrance of that big bag of  steer manure. Whooofi Happy"  Gardening.  These workshops are designed for people with an  interest in dance, movement,  theatre���or anything, if it  comes right down to it! No  special skills are required���you  don't have to look like something or be like something; all  you have to bring is your body  and your curiousity. The  workshop provides a relaxed,  non-competitive atmosphere in  which to explore your own  possibilities and creative process and to work with other  people. It's interesting and it is  FUN! Now the workshop!  This workshop will explore  different facets of music and  movement, including exercises  to develop rhythmic sensibilities, talking, singing and story  telling to explore harmony and  melody. Exercises will be  selected from percussion, voice  and singing explorations, and  music and movement improvisations. The day will begin  with a physical warm up.

OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  "Licenced Premises" ^6  Coast News, March 25, 1980  Highways high-handed  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  I read a report a couple of  weeks ago of a meeting to  discuss the Roberts Creek  Community Plan. Regional  Board planner Jim Johnstone  was quoted as saying the  Department of Highways  would never agree to go down  to a 66 ft. road allowance for  Beach Avenue and that rather  than maybe jeopardize the  community plan the residents  would be wiser not to press for  it.  Now what sort of nonsense is  that?  If    the    community    plan  doesn't represent the wishes of  the  people  who live  in Ihe  community it's not worth ihe  paper it's written on, and just  when did we give the Department   of  Highways  (or  any  other    Government    Department  for  that  matterl carte  ��� blanche to ride roughshod over  ��� us and dictate what Victoria  '. thinks is good for us?  I understand Jim's desire to  get the community plan in  place, such planning is long  overdue and much work has  gone into it, but roads are such  an important ingredient of the  atmosphere and well-being of  any neighbourhood that they  surely are not negotiable?  When my father was in his  eighties I used to try to stop him  signing letters to the government, "your humble and obedient servant"! You're not their  humble and obedient servant I  used to tell him. They are  yours. You elected them to  i-serve you and don't let them  t-forget it.  The operative word is  j'serve", not impose priorities  *;on us, in this case in the form of  ^arbitrary road systems created  ton a map in Victoria with little  i-;if any reference to the reality of  , the area.

Hydro and  close their eyes and ears to  everything   except   the   prerequisites of their engineers.  Beach Avenue enhances the  natural rural atmosphere  which outsiders so greatly  admire, and is one of the  pleasant drives you take visitors to on the Sunshine Coast.  There are still stands of  beautiful trees, grass verges and  wild flowers growing beside the  winding narrow road, a road  dappled with shade on summer  days.  Other places have the sense  to keep their roads narrow,  tree-lined and pleasant, encouraging those in a hurry to  use the major highways and  there is no reason why wc  cannot do the same. Even roads  like West Vancouver's Marine  Drive which carries far heavier  traffic loads than Beach Avenue is likely to generate in this  century.  A couple of years ago while  visiting San Francisco, we were  taken by friends into Marin  County. You drive over the  Golden Gate Bridge and turn  off the freeway, a stone's throw  almost from the city and you're  in another world of narrow  country lanes serving small  communities and resorts. The  roads arc  well  travelled but  "Sec (MR Block  for assistance  with the  British Columbia  income tax  credits."

Undoubtedly, Gower Point  Road will be next on the  Department's list for improvement, and there is no doubt it  badly needs resurfacing and  ditching and there is an increasing problem as new homes  are buili on ihe north side with  driveways which drain straight  onto the road, bin do we want il  turned into a drag-strip like  Pratt Road'.' Are we going to be  consulted. Is the Department  of High ways discussing the sort  of roads we would like with  those working on our Community Plan? Or do wc wake up  one morning to find the  bulldozers destroying the carpet-frilled bleeding hearts and  knocking down the dogwoods  we saved from them several  years ago. Will our road which  has so much character���shaded by venerable and cherished  maples, remembered by some  ofthe residents when they were  little more than saplings by a  trail, a road which is a mecca  for blackberry pickers in the  summer���be transformed into  a bleak strip of asphalt with  verges scraped so bare it'll take  a decade for nature to repair  the damage? A road, like Pratt,  bereft of all character and  charm, just a means to an end,  that of getting from A to B as  last as possible? Like Pratt, if  speed is a problem now, it's  nothing to the problem we'll  have if it's widened and  "improved", those presently  driving at 80 km will then travel  at 100 km or over.

Please note the following  changes: Leaving Horseshoe  Bay, the regular 11:45 a.m.  sailing now leaves at 11:30 a.m.  There is an extra sailing at 9:15  a.m. leaving Horseshoe Bay.  Leaving Langdale, the regular  12:50 p.m. sailing now leaves at  12:35 p.m. There is an extra  sailing at 10:20 a.m. leaving  Langdale.  This revision is likely to be in  effect for approximately two to  three weeks.  dangcring a blade of grass, but  there has to be a way which  doesn't create this sort of  devastation which was perpetrated on Pratt Road.  I may well be out on a limb  by myself, but it does seem to  me thai the Highway Department is still living in the sixties  when fuel was cheap and cars  an economical form of transportation, quite out of step  with the reality ofthe eighties.  Such a lime maycome again,  but it doesn't appear to be in  the immediate future. We are  presently being asked to help  conserve fuel by driving more  slowly���as if we had a full glass  of water balanced on the  dashboard; advised to get into  belter physical shape by leaving  our cars at home and walking,  cycling or jogging; advised also  to avoid hypertension by  slowing down our frenetic life  styles. The Chamber of Commerce and the real estate people  want to attract tourists and new  residents to the unspoilt charm  of the Sunshine Coast. Isn't it  time the Department of Highways got into step? The side-  roads in an area like this surely  aren't just for the motorist. He  has to share with those who  wish to walk, to push baby  buggies, ride bikes, jog or ride  horses. It's unnecessary and far  too expensive to provide special areas for every interest when  we can so easily accomodate  each other if the roadways  aren't turned into speedways  for those of us who drive cars.

Metcalfe reported that the  P.E.P. rescue boat.manned by  Jerry and John Mercer, had  dispatched from Secret Cove to  ascertain the size and source of  the slick. According to Jerry  Mercer, the slick, then two or  three miles off shore, was  approximately a mile long and  a quarter of a mile wide.  "It looked like fuel oil, not  bunker oil," Mercer said. "It  was thickening up on the  surface and leaving a film on  the side ofthe boat. It looks like  somebody, maybe a barge,  pumped their bilges."  Metcalfe told Council he had  a second report of oil, believed  to be from the same slick, off  Camp Byng shortly before the  meeting began. The downcoast  drift of the slick suggests that  the spill may actually have  occurred further north.

Coast News, March 25, 1980  Carl's corner  by Carl Chrismas  The rest of the journey was  pleasantly uneventful. We  visited a ghost mining town at  Barslow, California, enjoyed a  wonderful sea food dinner in  Westport, Oregon, almost had  lo sleep in the car as a result of  'no-vacancy' signs as the travelling U.S. population celebrated  Washington's birthday on the  Oregon coast.  1 had only one regret of the  whole irip. I wasn't able to  perpetrate my little practical  joke of a simulated earthquake  on Bob and Lila, our travelling  companions.  On Ihe first iwo nights of our  trip down through California,  the reports of tremors and after  shock waves were on every  radio report. Bach night as we  retired, we were warned of the  possibilities.  Now, in most motels with  iwj double beds, one of them  will have a coin operated  vibrator attachment. This  soothing motion is supposed to  waft you off into the gentle  arms of Morpheus before the  lime alloted for the 25c donation expires.  To make sure that Bob and  Lila got the active bed, we preempted the other. They were  not too far apart so it was not  much of a chore for me to reach  jver, drop my quarter, very  quietly of course, into the slot  of the earthquake machine at  the psychological moment.  I over played my hand the  first night by fantasizing, along  with Lila, the horrors of being  swallowed up by another San  Francisco earthquake. It made  Lila so nervous she couldn't go  to sleep. Unfortunately, I did. I  awoke in the morning with my  quarter lying on the rug where  it had dropped as I dozed.  The next night, I had better  luck. The lights were out, we  had all settled down when I  dropped my quarter in the slot.  Now that bed was a real  performer!  In a moment I could hear  Lila whispering, "Bob! Oh  Bob!", as she shook him into  wakefulness.  I began to visualize her  erupting from the bed. grabbing at anything handy and  heading for the dooi, shouting,  "Earthquake!", at the top of her  lungs, with poor bob trying to  quiet her.  The fantasv was so real 1  erupted into laughter and  spoiled it all. Maybe if I had  been able to contain myself thai  quaking bed might have simulated a piece of jiggling real  estate, but in a trice Lila had it  all figured and began to join in  the laughter.  I'm suu our neighbours  thought they were listening to  the turned up volume of 'Hee  Haw', but in any case, we were  a long time in getting back to  sleep and it turned out to be the  best laugh of the whole trip.  And it's nice to be home!

Scouts need support  by Ivan Smith, D.C.  Sunshine Coast District Council  Boy Scouts  SCOUTING on the Sunshine Coast encompasses boys  from five years to 23 years of  age, Pender Harbour to Port  Mellon. That's a lot of boys,  one of which is yours.  This Coast is ideal for the  "outing" in Scouting. We have  advantagesjust not available in  the city, The boys are active  and eager and it would be a  shame if they must be denied  the balance of this year's  programme and disbandment  Elphinstone Report  Monday was St. Patrick's  Day, the day when St. Patrick  brought Christianity to Ireland. Student Council took this  opportunity to commemorate  this event by having a 'Green  Day'! Many people came to  school dressed in different  shades of green. A most  interesting and memorable  day.  The rush is on the Yearbook  Committee to finish the annual ns their publication deadline is only a few days distant.  The last mir utc dash for grad  questionnaires, tiby pictures,  and candids is on.  The grads' carwash on Saturday, March 22, was a success.  There were many dirty cars  transformed to shining new  machines and a good time was  had by all.  On March 19 a 'Career's  Day' was held. People from all  kinds of occupations were at  our school.  They were very  friendly and helpful when they  talked to the students. There  were three sessions in the  morning. Session one started at  9:00 a.m. and ended at 10:15  a.m.; session two was from  10:15 a.m. until 11:15 a.m.;and  session three went from 11:15  a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Chatelech  and Pender Harbour students  joined Elphinstone students in  this effort put out by Mrs. Giza  and Ron Breadner. Thanks to  these two teachers. Some ofthe  representatives came from  occupations such as radio,  hairdressing, fish and wildlife,  forestry, automotive, interior  decorating, and many, many  more.  On March 20, Mr. Heathey's  Law II class went to the  Robson Square Courthouse.  They talked to Judge Paris of  the County Court, and in the  afternoon watched l'/i hours of  a trial. This was very interesting  as many people had never seen  the inside of a courthouse. The  trip was quite successful and  Mr. Heathey was pleased with  the enthusiasm of his students  and their reactions to this trip.  Canada's most bizarre poet  is back. Gordie Laidlaw is  coming to Elphinstone April  14. The Canadian Naden Band  is coming April 21, and Ro-  mane, a world famous hypnotist is coming to Elphinstone  April 24.  next year due to lack of  support.  PARENTS! It is already  happening! The situation is  critical and disbandment has  already happened in Roberts  Creek. Of course, the disappointed boy there wasn't yours.  Gibsons has lost a veteran cub  leader of 10 years, WHY? It's  lonely out there all by yourself  with 36 of your boys. Sechelt,  Wilson Creek and Pender  Harbour are functioning without group committee support.  TRUE, there are a lot of  hardworking, dedicated people, but they can't do it alone.  Overwork and lack of support  are causing many to leave the  Scouting family. We know you  have jobs and other family  commitments, but so do our  volunteer leaders and dedicated group committee workers.  You ask why do they bother if  they're so overworked? Many  of our people are asking  themselves the same question.  The answer, they care about the  youth of this community. A  leader recently received a gift of  appreciation from his boys. His  reply, "You're not the only ones  having fun."  Talk to your son, is he really  keen and eager, is cubbing or  scouting important to him,  then maybe you can help. It's  not important if you can give  only a little of your time, but  every little bit helps to take the  burden off our leaders. How  about volunteering to drive on  an outing, phoning to keep  others in your area informed,  volunteer once a month to  organize a game or talk to the  boys about something you  know. How about helping or  planning a fund-raising scheme  so the boys can have equipment, have a weiner roast.  BOREDOM only happens  because your leaders lack time  and assistance.  Check in your area, see  where you can best help.  Training is not important. At  this time enthusiasm is!!  PLEASE, FOLKS, YOUR  BOYS NEED YOUR HELP  NOW!  For further information  contact District Commissioner  Ivan Smith, 885-9673 or Bud  Norris, Acting Assistant Commissioner, 886-2291.  To those who have already  responded to local appeals,  MANY THANKS.  Gibsons Auxiliary  Chatelech future  (cont'd.)  meeting the floor was finally  thrown open to general observations and parents from Halfmoon Bay and Davis Bay  stressed that they wanted their  children to attend Chatelech  next year. Tim Frizzell of Davis  Bay said that he personally  favoured small schools and  suggested a pilot project for a  small number of Grade It's at  Chatelech next year. "The  courses can be organized," said  Frizzell. "The Management  Committee could  rise to the  Sechelt  friction  (cont'd)  being considered for rezoning.  As no action had been taken on  the rezoning, the money was  refunded as requested by  Pebble Holdings.  Alderman Hall was of the  opinion that the funds should  have been forfeited to the  Village. He also suggested that  the deposit could have been  considered as a means of  buying a rezoning and would  leave strings atta';iid in the  event that it had been approved.  Alderman MacDonald felt  that these remarks were a  reflection on his position as  Chairman of the Committee  considering the application at  the time and a reflection on his  present position as Chairman  of the Finance Committee.  It was moved by Alderman  MacDonald, seconded by  Alderman Stelck, that the  refund be approved. Alderman  Hall voted contrary to the  motion. The refunding was  approved.  challenge. It's only a matter of  addressing yourselves to the  problem."  In conversation with the  Coast News after the meeting  parents of Indian students said  that it was really important to  them to have their children  attend school in Sechelt next  year. "We have so many dropouts. If our kids skip school in  Sechelt we can find them. In  Gibsons we are helpless."  by Elizabeth Johnston  The March meeting of the  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  was held al the Calvary Baptist  Church on Wednesday, March  5, 1980, with 15 members  present.

"  Tomcats prowl  At the Gibsons Council  meeting on Tuesday, March 18,  Alderman Stu Metcalfe expressed concern over the  activities of stray cats in the  Lower Village. Alderman Metcalfe said he has received  several reports of tomcats  creating a disturbance and  leaving an offensive smell in  their wake.  "Turn the dogs loose," suggested Alderman Fitchett.  Some doubt was expressed  by other members of Council as  to whether the by-laws cover  the disposal of cats, as opposed  to dogs, but Alderman Larry  Trainor assured Council that  the City of Vancouver deals  with thousands of stray cats  each year under similar statutes, which may derive originally from 16th Century English  Common Law.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard  inquired about the exact location of the complaints. "I've  had one specific complaint  from the area around Bals  Lane," Alderman Metcalfe  replied.

Personally, I die inside at the mention of "I Spy". Of  course, there's always that story telling game where  each member of the family takes a turn at telling a  segment of some ongoing saga stopping at the  cliffhanger so that the next person in line can continue.  Somehow it's always the driver's turn when one is  either lost in the freeway jungle or when the fire engine  is bearing down on one in the midst of the rush hour  and there's nowhere to go. In such moments it seems  better to glue one's mouth shut rather than let the  expletives fly. Musn't warp the children's minds.

There were cars everywhere, crawling along like an  army of insects. And there was I, with club in hand,  standing at my parking lot entrance trying to keep  out those who were NOT coming to shop in our  store.  Distasteful? Yesl In reality, though, a very likely  thing if the present trend is not rectified very soon.  The Gibsons Harbour Business Association last  week petitioned the Planning Committee of Council  to take an option on the Ce-op property���for use as  a pooled parking lot. Even with the Co-op out of  business, the Co-op lot is full of cars most of the  time. Small wonder then that the Co-op found it  difficult to sustain necessary traffic for its business.  Then, too, many of our surrounding business  owners and employees are too lazy to park on the  side street or back lanes, preferring instead to take  up available space on the business street. Tourists,  taking the scenic route from the ferries via Gibsons  Harbour, land up here with no where to stop. This  year CBC will be opening up Molly's Reach as a  local point of interest. This is excellent. Where will  they stop?  But hang in there, I'm not near finished yet! We  have been given to understand that the wharf is in  dangerous condition. I'm sure we've all seen and felt  it sway when a strong Squamish is blowing. Well, it  is to be repaired, and all parking thereon will be  forbidden. It parks regularly around 40 vehicles.  Where will they go?  The bank lot, too, is frequently impossible to get  into. The streets are full, and the wharf is full. There  are businesses adjacent to the Co-op lot who have  little or no parking and can't provide it. Our  customers are complaining that they frequently  can't get into our lot or park on the streets near our  store. We have come to work from lunch at times,  and seeing the lot full of cars, thought the store to be  busy���only to learn the car owners were in the  Omega or the Heron for lunch. In the springtime,  people from all over use our lot to shop at Murray's.  We are so divided among ourselves in this  community that it is virtually impossible to get  corrective action from 'city hall'. There they are  continually pestered by vocal self-interest groups,  pushed and pulled, hardly knowing which way to  go. They wisely secured land for luture use as  marina parking and have been pilloried for that. I  believe the peopleweelect should run our business  firmly, fairly, and in our community's best interests  We, the people need to give them that kind of  support.  The solutions to parking, in any area where land is  scarce, and values are high, is to establish  corporation parking, owned and controlled by the  municipality, but run on a self-financing basis.  The Lower Gibsons area is desperately in need of  this kind of parking and a parking by-law that is  enforced. The upper commercial area is rapidly  getting into the same positions. The old Sunnycrest  parking lot is full much of the time, and oft times with  cars for which no space can be found in front of the  Cedars Inn. At the Cedars Mall I have on more than  one occasion found it difficult to park when desiring  to visit upstairs tenants on business.  We need constructive input from the citizenry  very badly to support our Council in the short and  'long range planrjing that must be done now, while  vacant land exists. It doesn't need to cost us as  taxpayers. It will make it more convenient for all of  us. and be of immense benefit to the economic base  of the business community.  My information is that the Co-op lot is likely to be  purchased for a business enterprise that will  compound the problem instead of alleviate the  present parking stresses.  Shop with confidence.

On March 16, the Canfor  Raiders defeated Sechelt U-  nited 5-0. The game was called  early after the United's Bill  Allen was given a red card and  a 3-game suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct.  The local yokels chalked up  two points to inch a third place  finish in the league standings.  Congratulations to Bob Crosby on his second shutout of the  season. Dave White played \vell_  as he popped in four goals. Al  Braun scored the other goal.  Duncan Campbell also played  a knockout game.  It was a beautiful sunny  afternoon on Sunday, March  23 when the Raiders swept past  the Sechelt Redskins 8-1. At the  half it was 2-1. The rout over  the tired Sechelt side began in  the second half with Dave  White machine-gunning 5  goals past the shell-shocked  Redskin goalie. Geoff Devine,  Bob Weston and Robb Stevens  scored the remaining Gibsons  goals with Adrian Dixon  Scoring for Sechelt. The Raiders played an aggressive  attacking style that led to shot  after shot on goal. Duncan  Campbell played a standup  game as did Stan Salmon, Dan  Paul and Art Dew. Coach, Jim  Burns attributed the increased  scoring to the new 4-3-3  formation. He also had praise  for Doug Jamieson and Lyle  Blomgren.

From Skelly in Ottawa  The west and the Liberals  hy Ray Skelly, MP  1 uesday, March 25, 1980  It is going to be interesting to  see how the Trudeau Liberals  deal with Western Canada.  Having been denied every  seat west of the Red River the  Liberals have been seeking  various cosmetic ways of  donning the mantle of a  national party. A "western  voice in government" has been  the concern of some political  commentators. Some sort of  token western representation  has been the aim of Liberal  Party leaders. These cosmetic  attempts have included the  elevation of the only re-elected  Liberal west of Ontario to  Cabinet rank, the appointment  of three western Senators to the  Cabinet and statements of  concern by the Prime Minister  about western alienation.  Western Canadians did not  vote bberal. In fact the Liberal'  vote in British Columbia,  contrary to the eastern trend,  actually declined in the Febru-'  ary election. The dangerous  assumption being made by  some political pundits and by  the Liberal Party is that  western Canada was and is out  of step with Ontario and  Quebec. The assumption  means that the Liberals view  western Canadians as having  made a mistake in not voting  for the present governing party.  The danger is that the  ultimate sovereignty of the  people through the exercise of  the vote is being ignored. The  other danger is that our  national political institutions  are going to be ignored.  Though the appointment of  Senators to Cabinet has been a  practice in some former governments (including the Clark  government, with accompanying Liberal criticism) and  although it is constitutionally  legal for a Prime Minister to  make such appointments, such  technical sleights of hand are  an affront to democracy. A  great deal of day to day  decision making and the government's spending decisions  are made by Cabinet. To  include Ministers who have not  been elected to public office  and who are not, therefore,  directly accountable to the  people is a sham. It is no less a  sham for the present Liberal  government than it was for Joe  Clark i ml Robert de Cotre six  morl.is :;go.  Platitudes from the Prime  Minister about western alienation are also a sham. During  past Liberal governments westerners saw only too clearly  that even when western Liberals were on the government  benches and in Cabinet the  concerns of the west were  ignored. Mr. Trudeau did  nothing about western issues  and western concerns in the  days of Otto Lang, Jack Davis,  Ron Basford, Iona Campanolo  and Jack Pearsall. There is little  reason to expect that he will do  anything about such issues and  concerns now.  The fact of the matter is that  western Canadians have clearly  expressed their political will.  Westerners have resoundingly  said, "we have no confidence in  Liberals, any Liberal, to speak  on   our  behalf  in   Ottawa".  Despite Liberal platitudes and  hand-wringing British Columbians have freely and decisively elected 28 Members of  Parliament to work for their  interest and concerns on the  federal level.  As a western Member of  Parliament I will do my utmost  to ensure that the federal  administration is kept informed of our needs and  concerns on the west coast:  your needs and concerns plus  those of the fishing industry,  forest industry, small business,  armed forces personnel, search  an J rescue, transport and local  government concerns. My  western colleagues will do the  same.  The Trudeau Liberals have  forgotted that the west elected a  variety of able spokespersons.  The Liberals, in their grandstand efforts to include "western representation in government" have also overlooked the  fact that Canada was established as a federal state to  compensate for the limitations  of any one political party.  Westerners are not only served  by the,government in Ottawa.  We are also served by the  governments in Winnipeg,  Regina, Edmonton and Victoria. The west will survive with,  or without, the Liberals. The  truly interesting question is:  How long can the Liberals  survive without the west?  I look forward to serving you  and Canada in the new Parliament.  by Irene Bushfield  The Gibsons Branch No. 38  of the O.A.P.O. held their  General Meeting on Monday  March 3 at 2:00 p.m. in  Harmony Hall. The chair was  taken by our vice-president Vic  Eckstein, in the absence of our  president, Gladys Coates, who  was on a well-earned vacation.  Looking back over the  February activities we have to  say that the highlight was the  Valentine Dinner Party held on  February 15 at the Royal  Canadian Legion Hall, put on  by the Ladies Auxiliary of  Branch No. 109. Every year  these ladies have invited the  Senior Citizens of this community to an evening of fun,  serving a delightful dinner and  providing entertainment afterwards. As always the dinner  was superb, and everyone  enjoyed the Scottish music, the  sing-along, the dancing and all  those prizes. A hearty vote of  thanks goes to those ladies, and  to the men who helped serve.  Our pot luck supper  was, as usual, a most enjoyable  affair. Getting together is all we  need to enjoy good food, good  company, and happy participation in the games of cards  and pool. Our next supper will  be held on March 22, starting at  6:00 p.m. so keep the date in  mind.  Our regular activities continue as usual. Every Tuesday 5  pin bowling starts at 1:30 p.m.  at Gibsons Bowling Lanes.  Carpet bowling and darts every  Wednesday afternoon, 1:00  p.m. at Harmony Hall. Public  bingo with a $100 jackpot is  held every Thursday evening at  7:45 p.m. at Harmony Hall.

On the first day ol spring this magnificent bird landed in the center of  Lower Gibsons and looked over his kingdom.  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  by Dee Cee  It so happened that Jim had  at one time worked either in or  around Hamilton as he soon  found a place for us to stay  while we supposedly looked for  for a job. Our landlady was  Irish, a small birdlike woman in  her seventies and Jim warned  me that she was intensely  religious so to watch my  language when she was around.  We shared a room with two  cots and paid her a week's rent  in advance, which was $6.  The next day being Sunday  we slept till quite late and Jim,  feeling as always in need of a  drink, left to, as he put it, "case  the city", which' interpreted  meant to look for a bootlegger  or some dive where they served  home brew or other beverages  with an alcoholic content. I  don't know just how much  cash he had but I distinctly  remember that neither he nor I  posed much of a threat to the  Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts  or the Rothschilds, as I counted  my fortune out and it a-  mounted to $86.  I haven't set foot in Ontario  from many, many years but at  the time of which I write the  Puritan ethic seemed to prevail  and Sundays were deadly, as  far as I was concerned. No  stores or cinemas were open;  Prohibition being in force there  were no bars, taverns or clubs  to while away the time in and  the streets were deserted after  midnight Saturday. They might  as well have rolled the sidewalks and streets up and put  them away for the Sabbath  weekend. It seemed as if those  in authority thought that by  this total closure people would  flock to the churches and, for  all I know, perhaps they did as I  certainly wasn't present at any  of them to count the attendance  or comment on their congregations large or small. Oddly I  found the same situation many  years later, 1955 to be exact, in  Edmonton, Alberta, when  Premier Manning was in  power. The "Bluenoses" made  the laws and to hell with the  heathen if they didn't want to  fall in line and conform.  Anyway I spent most of that  Sunday in a park not too far  from where we roomed, ogling  the passing parade of girls and  waiting for Jim to return with a  bottle or jug ofthe Elixir that, if  it did nothing else, might  transform a very dull day into  something more bearable.  Unfortunately when he did  return late that night it was  small solace to me���he had  already consumed it!  Monday morning we split up  and commenced our search for  employment, reasoning that  way we would cover more  territory, but I cannot say my  heart was in it as I already had  taken a dislike to the city and  longed to get back to Montreal.  We met again around lunch  time and I could sense Jim was  discouraged too as all our  efforts had proved unsuccessful. In a mood of "to hell with it  all" we decided to get a bottle of  hooch, down some of it and  take in a movie to pass the  afternoon. It wasn't long  before Jim was back with the  bottle which had cost $4.1 can  truthfully say that in all my  years of uncivilized drinking I  had never encountered anything like it, not even the fiery,  vile tasting Arrack that I  attempted to drink pure in  Ceylon and India, at a much  later date. If the criterion ofthe  strength of a drink can be  judged by the expression "it  would burn in a lighter", then  this liquid dynamite far surpassed that measure as I am  certain it would not only have  served as fuel but in all  probability would have melted  or dissolved the metal!  I have only the dimmest  recollection of what the movie,  a Western starring Tom Mix,  was all about as we passed the  bottle back and forth, took a  gulp and a hasty swig of pop to  wash it down before we  choked. I remember it started  with the cowboys chasing the  Indians, then the scene changed  and the latter were chasing the  former but as the screen got  more and more blurred, I could  swear the horses were chasing  both parties and, with the  amount of gunfire going on, it  was a miracle if anything or  anyone survived at all!

After all this exertion I  decided I would rest for a  couple of hours but when I  awakened and looked at my  watch it was half past midnight. I have had some monumental hangovers in my time  but this one was a dilly. I had a  raging thirst and all I could  think of were foaming tankards  of ice cold ale, Montreal style.  Sleep was out ofthe question so  I hurriedly pulled on my sheepskin lined boots, belted topcoat  with its lining of imitation fur  and staggered out into the night  looking for something to put  out the fire that was consuming  me.  I managed to make it to the  square where, during the day, I  had noticed a cluster of taxis.  On enquiring of one of the  drivers where I could get a  drink he, after looking me over  somewhat quizzically, told me  he knew of a place out on the  Toronto highway, a roadhouse  I think he called it, where there  was all kinds of booze, music  and usually lots of women,  warm, willing and available for  a price. In my addled state I  never bothered to ask how far  or how much but piled into the  cab and we were away!  We drove for what seemed to  me like hours and hours but  eventually we turned off the  highway, up a gravel road and  arrived at a long building which  could have once been a factory  or a barn. I paid the driver,  don't ask me how much and  was admitted, and, as far as I  remember, went down a long  flight of stairs to where all the  action was and where all the  deafening noise apparently was  coming from, into a long, low-  ceilinged room. Befuddled as I  was, it struck me that most of  the occupants were coloured  people, including the band  which consisted of a piano,  drums and some kind of  hornplayer. There might have  been 40 people in the joint or it  could have been a hundred but,  as my taxi man had promised,  In Christ's Service  Is world peace viable?  by Rev. George W. Inglis,       practitioners of peace that they   him any more qi  by Rev. George W. Inglis,  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  Is world peace really a viable  target in a world where there  are people starving within earshot of their well-fed and  affluent brothers and sisters?  Is world peace possible when  the acquisitiveness of people  has been honed to the point  where the "good life" is measured in trips abroad, in  numbers of vehicles, in size and  splendor of dwelling places, in  real estate holdings, in stocks  and bonds, in retirement  programs, in one half of the  world-while the other half is  only just emerging from the  most primitive living and is  barely able to eke out a skin-  and-bones existence?  Are people in today's instant  communication society going  to be able to continue to be  lulled into a state of docility by  the offering of a few baubles of  foreign aid, somewhat like the  aboriginals in 18th and 19th  century exploration and conquest?  Is world peace really a  practical possibility in a world  where the practitioners of  peace often work at cross-  purposes with the preachers of  peace? Has it not been the case  down through the history ofthe  there were scads of women of  all shapes and sizes.  It wasn't long before I was in  animated conversation with an  Indian girl whose predominant  features included a magnificent  set of milkshakes that seemed  to be just on the point of  popping out of her white silk  blouse. She also had long black  braids and, when she smiled,  had one lone gold tooth in  front. I was too drunk to dance  but I tried anyway and my  awkward manoeuvres on the  slippery floor went, I imagine,  unnoticed as everyone appeared to be in a similar  condition.  I don't know how many  drinks I bought for Lucille and  the other girls and, in turn,  their boyfriends, but, without  actually exhibiting my roll, I  must have appeared to be one  of the last of the big time  spenders. Idiot that I was, I felt  proud to be making such an  impression. That when the  drinks were being served mine  always seemed to be the last on  the tray and pushed forward  from the back didn't register on  me at the time.  However, at this stage I had  only one thing on my mind and  you can guess what that was!  At last the moment arrived and  Lucille, with a gracious nod to  her friends and a dazzling smile  for me, motioned for me to  follow her. In anticipation of  all the pneumatic delights I  would soon be enjoying, I  needed no urging. She led me  over to a door at the end ofthe  hall and whether we were going  upstairs to her room or outside  was of no consequence to me.  As I stepped through the door,  out of nowhere I suddenly  remembered that this was my  19th birthday, the 28th day of  September and that was the last  thing I do remember. I don't  recall the pain of a blow but a  hundred, thousand shooting  stars exploded in my head and  it was "curtains" for Dee Cee���  perhaps oblivion would be a  better word.  practitioners of peace that they  attempt to gain their point by  force and bloodshed? And have  not the preachers of peace so  frequently done their preaching  from an inviolate, ivory tower  site, remote from the violence  and bloodshed?  Some hard working groups  in today's global village society  seem to think that peace is not  only viable, but possible, and  notable among these is the  World Conference on Religion  and Peace, which has held three  world conventions so far���one  in Kyoto in 1970, and one in  Louvain in 1974, and the most  recent one in Princeton in 1979.  In Princeton, there were 354  participants from 47 countries  around the world, and they  represented Christian, Buddhist, Confucianist, Hindu,  Jain, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto,  Sikh, Zoroastrian and other  beliefs, some of whom arc not  classified as world religions by  the scholars of the subject.  Among other statements,  this group said: "World peace  in world community, with  justice for all, is possible."  There is very little doubt that  this type of statement from this  type of group is impressive;  even more impressive is the  premise: "We believe...this  faith and hope which we share  can cause a new force to be  brought to bear in human  affairs and a new era would  result in the world."  We must confess we find  much to be optimistic about in  this world movement, and  something very sensible in the  findings of this latest world  convention, which has been  printed in an impressive,  concise publication, The  Princeton Declaration.  However, one of the problems with this group is that they  appear to be preachers, rather  than practitioners, and this  brings to mind the time, 2,000  years ago, when some of the  finest preachers of the law of  love and reverence for God and  neighbour���the scribes and  Pharisees���were foursquare in  conflict with the Prince of  Peace Himself.  We read how, in Matthew  23:2, 3 this Prince of Peace,  who had been prophesied to as  "Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father,  Prince of Peace", some 750  years earlier by the great  prophet Isaiah, had this to say  about those scribes and Pharisees: "The scribes and Pharisees sit on Moses' seat; so  practise and observe whatever  they tell you, but not what they  do; for they preach but do not  practise."  And we know it was these  preachers, these ivory tower,  law givers, teachers and interpreters, who, although they  were steeped in the law of love  and brotherhood as preaching  material, actually acted quite  contrary to the spirit of that law  in acting out in their own lives  their response to the law of  love.  And we know it was those  same scribes and Pharisees,  disturbed and threatened by  the simple Galileean theologian  who braced them in their own  ivory tower, the magnificent  temple in Jerusalem, and  bested them in every discussion and debate, until they  realized: "...no one was able to  answer him a word, nor fromi  that day did any one dare to ask 1  AilHOUIICEiHEIIT  NOTARY PUBLIC  JOHN B.

Phone: 886-7613  1600 Sargent Road. Gibsons, B.C.  vonivo  him any more questions."  (Matthew 22:46).  The difference between Jesus  and his adversaries is the same  difference that exists today  between some of the dedicated  groups who preach for peace,  and the much less articulate  and much less numerous individuals who practise peace.  These practitioners are really  the front line troops for a viable  and comprehensive world  peace, but they are so few in  number, and their task is so  vast, it seems idealistic and  optimistic in the extreme to say  they will be powerfully effective.  And yet, it is only from these  practitioners of peace in every  village, hamlet, town, city and  countryside, that the movement can really grow in grass  roots form, sweeping before it  racial differences, political and  religious dissimilarities, socio-  ethnological differences, and  language barriers, etc.  It is only as these practitioners develop among themselves  some common denominator, in  many cases without ever having  met each other, that they will  begin to offer a united front  and the strength of one indivisible unit.  Can such a common denominator be found in such a  diverse group?  Well, even though these  world religious groups may be  walking along different paths,  they may still be marching to  the same drum beat!  Every religion is founded on  a relationship between man  and deity, and a large majority  of these deities are represented  by a spirit.  And that spirit, God's Holy  Spirit in the case of the  Christians, Jews and Muslims  at least, is the one common  denominator which they all  may share.  Our own favourite apostle,  Paul of Tarsus, said that when  we walk in the Spirit, we share  the fruits of the Spirit, chief of  whom are love, joy and peace.  (Gal. 5:23).  So there may be hope yet!  Nurses  Recent elections for the  Sunshine Coast Chapter of the  Registered Nurses Association  placed Eleanor Weston as  President and Joanne Rutluff  as Vice-President.

Gas meeting not fruitful  Several elected representatives of the Sunshine Coast  were in Victoria on Friday,  March 21, to have a meeting  with the Honourable Bob  McClelland, Minister of Energy, about the possibility of a  natural gas line to service  Vancouver Island and the  Sunshine Coast. According to  reports received by the Coast  News, it was not a fruitful  meeting.  Present from this area were  Mayor Boucher, Sechelt, Alderman Stelck of Sechelt,  Regional Director Joe Harrison, Alderman Larry Trainor  of Gibsons. Also in Victoria  that day and at the McLelland  meeting were Regional Director Charles Lee and Vic  Wallers of Sechelt.  At the outset ofthe meeting  McLelland was quoted as  saying, "When I stepped into  this portfolio I was shocked to  learn that we do not know what  the energy requirements of  Vancouver Island are." McLelland said that he intended to  institute a study immediately to  rectify this lack of information.

The  Fisheries in Vancouver knew  nothing about it. Other opinions were that it was only  closed from Roberts Creek up.  I finally got a hold of Lawrence Chambers, the Fisheries  Officer at Pender.  Coincidentally, he's off to  Nanaimo this Monday to a  meeting specifically on this  subject. At this meeting they  will be coming up with the final  decision on the length of the  closure. Until this decision is  confirmed, he advises that you  should consider the closure to  be in effect until April 15.  In this colume next week I'll  report   the   findings   of  the  meeting.  Non-tidal fishing  The 1980-81 non-tidal sports  fishing regulations are now out.  There are a few changes.  Sports-caught fish cannot be  processed in the field in such a  way that they cannot be  identified. Trout can't be used  as bait, and there has been a  reduction in steelhead limits. If  you want more information,  call the Fisheries Office in  Pender Harbour, or 387-5047  in Victoria.  C.O.R.E.

A torn cat  who lived on Balls Lane,  Drove Gibsons Council insane,  Stu Metcalf said, "Enough,  We have to get tough".  Dick Fitchett said,  "Let's free the dogs again".  At the pound  This time I've included a  picture of the latest parolees at  the Gibsons pound. From left  to right there are: A one year  old spayed female shepherd  cross. She was brought in by  the SPCA in Pender, she's had  all her shots and is friendly, but  suffering from claustrophobia  where she is.  The middle one is a lab collie  cross. About two years old,  neutered and has had all his  shots.  And the friendly lunk at the  right is around one year old.  He's a retriever cross. Although he is well filled out and  happy now, he was found  abandoned and starving on the  beach at Roberts Creek. Both  the male dogs are good with  kids. If you want one, contact  Marty Meldrum at the Gibsons  Village office.  Irvine's Landing  We just had the first of our  summer complaints. A friend  of my fair lady's visited us from  Chilliwack, so rainy as it was,  we played the part of good  hosts and became tour directors.  One of my favourite tours is  to go up to Morris Green's  place at the Irvine's Landing  Marina, get one of his boats  and head off exploring.  This time I should thank my  visitor. It was raining in  Gibsons and I would probably  have stayed home and gotten  mad at Jack Webster or  something. Instead, as we left  Morris' place, the sun came out  and it felt like a preview of  summer.  On Indian Island we came  within about 20 ft. of half a  dozen Canada geese. I'm using  one of the pictures I took of  them in this week's Realtor. A  little further in the harbour a  small flock of harlequin ducks  posed for us. They have to rival  the wood duck for beauty.  From talking with Morris, it  seems that the spring fishing is  good in that area. The only  evidence we saw was a distraught fisherman pulling in a  dogfish.  I think that I'll welcome  visitors this summer. They look  at everything with fresh eyes  and keep us from becoming  complacent about the beauty  that surrounds us.  Dolphins  If you've been listening to the  news, you probably heard  about the two dolphins in the  Montreal zoo, who died, presumably because their trainors  These three youngsters are the latest batch of dogs up for adoption at the Gibsons  Pound.  were on strike and not attending to them personally.  If these mammals have such  a great empathy with humans,  then it sounds more like  murder than hunting that is  going on along the Japanese  coast, where the fishermen are  killing them because they eat  too many fish.  Remember Pelorus Jack, the  dolphin who guided so many  sailing ships to safety through  the dangerous waters off  Australia?  Well, that's it for now. Call  me at 886-2622/886-7817 or  886-9151 if you see anything  interesting, ta.

Children's Corner  The regular monthly meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council was held on Tuesday,  March 18 in the Arts Council  building in Sechelt. Richard  Tomkies of the Pender Harbour Community Club was the  special guest at the meeting,  invited to see what sort of  Mason between the two groups  can be developed.  Sheila Page of the Art  Council's Inter-Action Auction Committee will go to the  Madeira Park Legion on Friday to explain to the Pender  Harbour Club the function of  the Arts Council in the community and to ascertain from  residents of Pender Harbour  ways in which the Arts Council  can have closer communications and connections with the  Pender Harbour community.  One of the chief items for  discussion during the meeting  was landscaping for the  grounds of the Arts Council  building in which the meeting  was taking place. It was  reported to the meeting that  grant applications to the  Canada Council and to Loto  Canada had been refused  mainly on the grounds that  funds for the purpose had not  been raised locally.  Arrangements for a special  auction similar to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's  novelty fund raising auction,  were well underway, however,  before the letters of refusal  were received and Council  President, Vivian Chamberlin  reported that strong community support has already  been forthcoming. A professional auctioneer, Larry Brenner from Abbotsford, has been  engaged and Inter-Action  Auction Committee member  Sheila Page told the Coast  News that a number of inter-  The Song Sparrow  by Beverly Seton  Did you know a song sparrow could really think? Well 1-  I'm sure this little fellow could.  You know song sparrows  build their nests in very low  bushes, just about a foot off the  ground, and strangely enough  the wee babies tumble out of  the nest very early, onto the  ground where they are in great  danger and very vulnerable for  several days until they can fly.  We had been watching this  nest for some time. It was only  about 30 feet behind our  summer cottage on Keats  Island. Now at this time wc had  a very lively fox terrier, Spotty.  He would chase anything that  moved. We feared greatly for  the baby birds. We tried tying  Spotty up but after one whole  day of steady barking we could  stand it no longer. We tried to  keep him around in front of the  house as much as we could.  Then little daddy song sparrow  took over the job for us, and for  three solid days he kept that  dog running and barking in  front of the house. He sat on  every post, chair, and step  usually about 10 feet away  from Spotty, who chased him  like crazy. Spotty ran until he  was exhausted. Then birdie got  an even better idea. At the very  front ofthe garden was a row of the water. Spotty came very  rocks marking the edge of a 20 close  to  going over several  foot drop down to the rocks times. After three hectic days it  and the water below. Brave wee was all over.  I ran up and  bird sat, time after time on the looked and sure enough the  outside edge of one of the wee sparrows had learned to fly  rocks, trying his best to make and were safely sitting in a row  Spotty fall over the cliff. He  would stay until the very last  second and then just as the  dog's mouth was closing on  him he would swoop out over  Car Sense  CONTRACT PROPOSAL INVITED  HOWE SOUND LOG BOOM  INSPECTION PATROL  THE COUNCIL OF FOREST INDUSTRIES OF  B.C. invites proposals lo cairy out a LOG BOOM  INSPECTION PATROL, in Howe Sound commencing on or aboul April 1.1980.

The Carnival, this  Wednesday, March 26th, starts  at 4:00 at Pender Harbour  Secondary School and ends at  8:00, depending on how long  the prizes last. A nutritious  dinner will be served around  4:30, served by the school's  cooking classes. The dinner will  consist of mini-pizza, chili,  soups and lasagna, so mothers,  don't forget! Don't cook  supper, come to the Carnival  and cat.  The games are pie-throw (so  you can get that person you  dislike so much), cakewalk,  bingo, nail drive, ring and  bottles, bake sale and other  games and raffles. All the  proceeds go to the school's  clubs. Don't forget, the 26th is  the Spring Carnival. Bring a  friend or a tot���you'll have  fun!!!

THOUGHT FOR THE  WEEK���by J.W. Ncwburn:  People can be divided into  three groups: those who make  things happen, those who  watch things happen, and those  who wonder what happened.  At Career Day last week in Elphinstone High,  the most popular attraction was Tom Lucas  and Robby Peale from CFUN Radio.  Roberts Creek  Hospital Auxiliary  On March 11 in St. Aidan's  Hall, 23 members of the  Roberts Creek Hospital Auxiliary met under chairmanship of  Pauline Lamb. Pauline read a  very challenging poem after the  opening prayer.  Reports from committees  and the Co-ordinating Council  show continued activities in all  areas of service to patients and  administration of St. Mary's  Hospital. Material was dispensed for the making of infant  and toddlers' garments. These  are fast-moving items in the  hospital gift shop.  can result in a hard-to-handle,  unstable car and a potentially  dangerous driving situation.  Have your shocks checked  regularly and replaced when  necessary for safer, more stable  driving. Usually, a shock  absorber that has gone 20,000  miles or more is ready for  replacement.  A directive was received  from the B.C.A.HA. giving  guidelines for Auxiliaries in the  event of a nurses' strike.  Auxiliaries will still serve as  needed in their accustomed  areas but as private citizens and  not in uniform.  Preliminary plans were laid  for the annual "Christmas  Boutique", October 18. The  advanced date will certainly try  and make an opportunity for  "Early Bird" Christmas shopping.

Utility bills, like property taxes, are part of the cost of owning and maintaining  a home. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver suggests the following  ways in which you can not only reduce utility bills, but conserve energy.  Electric bills are easy to cut just by turning out lights that aren't being used,  and by replacing high-wattage bulbs by less wattage for use in areas that don't  require high illumination. Many people may not be aware that incandescent light  is a real power hog when compared to the efficiency of flourescent lighting. You  could save up to 75% on lighting power consumption by converting to  flourescent lights whenever possible. Remember too, light coloured room  surfaces reflect light so that less artificial help is needed. Clean fixtures, clean  lamp shades and dusted light bulbs help a lot in spreading more light too. High  intensity reading lights directed only at the area you want can save you  illuminating an entire room.  Some other tips include locating your refrigerator or freezer well away from  heat-producing appliances like stoves or dishwashers. The heat from these  appliances makes cooling equipment work harder. When installing a new  electric hot water heater, locate it as close as possible to the kitchen and  Please turn to Page Nine.  /    /   VANCOUVER IS1.AND  Iff      "'"* ""'" Sunshine Coast Realtor, March 25, 1980  Sechelt, B.C.

If long runs  of hot water pipes are unavoidable, these should be wrapped in insulating tape  to reduce heat loss.  Be sure that furnaces are checked regularly, and that filters are cleaned and  replaced regularly too. Fireplace and furnace flues should be kept clean for  better burning and to reduce chimney fire hazards, and prevent heat loss from  unused fireplaces by closing the flue tightly when it's not in use.  On sunny winter days, open the drapes wide and let the sun's rays pour in free  heat, and on colder nights, close the drapes to keep the heat in and drafts out.  Thermal linings on drapery over large window expanses are cheaper than  installing double paned windows, and have been proven to prevent from 24 to  30% heat loss through the glass. Conversely, in summer if used properly, they  will reduce heat coming through the windows by about 50%.  Cover pots and pans while cooking, because they heat faster and save  energy. Plan to cook several oven dishes at the same time, and don't open the  oven too often as you risk losing up to 50 degrees at each opening, requiring an  equal amount of energy to heat it up again. Turn down your thermostats during  the day and put on a sweater if you feel a chill, and turn the thermostat of your  water heater down too. Remember that showers take less water (and the  energy to heat it) than baths, and most fabrics today can be washed  satisfactorily in warm or cold water for additional energy saving.  Weather stripping can be put around windows and doors for insulation. Spots  where weather stripping is needed can be found by running your hand along the  frame. If you feel air coming in, weather stripping is needed.  Keep all appliances in top working order. Make sure no faucets are dripping  because you're wasting water and���if it's a hot water tap���you're paying for  energy you're not using.  Many energy and money saving tips are included with tips on saving the  environment in a free pamphlet called Energy and Your Environment���  What Can One Family Do?, available free on request from the Real Estate  Board of Greater Vancouver or the offices of any of its members.
