Array T^S^^^T-  -  *������  VS\r -  The Sunshine  . jblished on the Sunshine Coast        25* per copy on news stands January 1,1990       Volume 44       Issue 1  Port Mellon award  H$PP  safest  by men Frith  FTom being what was once  considered the worst mill in BC  in regards to the safety of its  workers, the latest pulp and  paper industry statistics show  the Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper (HSPP) mill at Port  Mellon as being "the safest mill  in Canada in its class".  An article in the December  issue of Canfor News states: 'As  of the end of October, HSPP  has experienced just one lost-  time accident in 1989, and had  an accident frequency rate of a  mere 1.1. That's the best of any  mill in Canada in the 50,000 to  100,000 manhours per month  category, as well as the best in  British Columbia.' t  (Prince George Pulp and  Paper stands fourth and Intercontinental Pulp seventh in the  same group,)  Unfortunately, a back injury  suffered" *by one of the mill  workers on November 21 ended  193 consecutive accident-free  days at the mill but since then,  as of December 28, the mill has  passed 37 days safely.  Bill Peterson, President of  the Canadian Paperworkers  Union (CPU) told the Coast  News he credits a "very active  safety program, between., the,.  union and the company" for  the much improved safety  record of the mill workers.  "Safety is just not a negotiable  thing with us," he said. "It's an  issue that is on-going with and  against the company."  He said that with all the construction going on at Port  Mellon, it was an "extremely  dangerous" site, and "congested to say the least". As a  consequence, "the men are very  conscious of their safety with  the heavy construction around  them and extra caution."  Wayne Creggain, Union  Safety Representative and Co-  chairman of the Industrial  Health and Safety Committee  points out that "statistics show,  in the modernization of a plant,  people tend to be safer".  "You are aware you can be  hurt easier," he told the Coast  News.  "I think it (the new safety  record) is because, over the  years, we've put our programs  on paper and invested in a lot of  training," Greggain said. "And  management is doing its  discipline bit."  Greggain also gives credit to  the Workman's Compensation  Board for its input.  Both Greggain and Peterson  said the safety record for the  HSPP construction site is not  equal to that of the mill and  Greggain puts the blame for  that on the construction contractors themselves who, he  said, put a lot of pressure on the  workers for overtime and in  spite of sometimes adverse conditions.  In spite of the recent safety  record, Greggain still feels not  enough is being done. "I'm the  key safety person at the mill,"  he said, "and I put in only eight  hours a week on safety. If they  were really serious about it, they  could do a heck of a lot more."  Neither management nor the  unions are pulling their full  weight, Greggain said. "We  both turn our heads when the  small unsafe acts happen. All  the little ones add up after a  while."  ��������� Creggain mm his involvement  in the safety of the mill workers  as one that is "very frustrating  and very gratifying".  "I just want to see people go  home safely after work," he  said, adding "I only wish I  knew the real reason (for the  new safety record)."  The other co-chairman on the  safety committee is Pierre  Lamarche HSPP Production  Manager, Pulp. ("He's the one  good thing management has  done," Greggain said.)  Lamarche and other HSPP  managers were unavailable for  comment last week but Lamarche is quoted in the Canfor  News article as saying, in  regards to the new safety  record: "We have been running  a close second for this position  all year and we finally made it.  That's just a superb performance by everyone in the mill."  1989 Bird Count  The Christmas Bird Count  for 1989 was not favoured with  ideal weather. A temperature  inversion caused considerable  fog and low cloud at sea level  and was particularly bad in the  Port Mellon area.  Despite this hampering visibility the annual count turned  up 92 species, tying 1983 for the  second highest number of  species counted in the area. The  highest number of species was  recorded in 1988 with 101  species counted.  New species to this area this  year were a flock of rosy finches  spotted above the fog on a logging road in the Port Mellon area  by Doug Brown and Sean Van  Strepen. Brown, from the  Okanagan, was participating in  the local bird count for the  eighth straight year,  Dan Bouman also added a  new species to this year's count  when he spotted a pair of barred  owls in Cliff Gilker Park. Also  new to the count was a ring-  necked pheasant.

It was a moment to relish as clouds and misl mov-  -KentSlwridM photo  SCRD turns over sewage plant  by Penny Fuller  At its final meeting of 1989,  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Board gave  reconsideration and final adoption to a by-law which transfers  the ownership of the Sechelt  Sewage Treatment Plant to a  commission. The plant has been  an issue since Sechelt became a  municipal district in 1986.  The official transfer of  ownership did not occur  without a brief exchange of  heated words, although the bylaw has been in the works for  over a year and has already  received first, second and third  readings.  The debate arose when  Sechelt Alderman Bob Wilson  objected to the wording regarding the selection of members  for the commission. Under the  new by-law the five member  commission will comprise of  two representatives from  Sechelt Municipal District, two  from the Sechelt Indian  Government District (SIGD)  and the fifth member to be  chosen from the SCRD board.  If the four members cannol  agree on a SCRD director, they  may choose the last member  from the general population of  the area served by the treatment  plant.  Wilson stated the wording  that his council had accepted  did not specify that the fifth  member had to reside in the service area.  Clerk-Administrator Larry  Jardine explained he had  assumed the wording, which he  borrowed from other similar  agreements used around the  province, reflected the wishes of  the government bodies.  Wilson's objection prompted  an angry outburst from Area C  Director Stan Dixon. Dixon  pointed out that the SIGD had  been very happy with the arrangement they had with the  regional district, and it was only  in a spirit of co-operation that  they had gone along wilh  Sechelt's decision lo restructure  the ownership of the treatment  plant. As the meetings went  along, Dixon maintained,  Sechelt had continuously chipped away at the SCRD's participation in the proposed commission.  "Now," he said, "I'll bet  anyone that one of the first  things that will happen is the  rates will go way up."  Director Jim Gurney, who  for many years chaired the committee which oversaw the running of the plant, reacted with  less emotion. He expressed  pride in Ihe efficient and  economic way Ihe treatment  plant and sewage system has  been run over the years, expanding lo provide service lo an increasing area while avoiding  major deficits or high service  charges. He stated his hope that  the new commission would be  able to maintan the standard of  service without excessive increases.  The by-law was given final  adoption and the new commission took over the reigns on  January 1, 1990.  Lagassee withdraws  Recent federal NDP leadership hopeful Roger Lagasse wiH  not run provincially In the next election, but will support  Howard While's nomination in the riding of Powell River  -Sunshine Coast. "I will continue to be involved as a  grassroots NDP activist," said Lagasse, who plans lo return  to teaching.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, January 1,1990  Comment  We're all in  this together  It is often true that a community is a microcosm of the  larger world, epitomizing the events of the greater whole,  but, in the last few months of 1989 at least, the Sunshine  Coast appeared quiel compared to the rest of the world, at  least on the political from.  Still the ailing health of our immediate environment  around Howe Sound, in reflecting environmental concerns  planet-wide, became a focus for many. Crab fishermen  may have been hit most directly with a shot at their pocket-  books but there is an uneasy feeling now among even the  most blinkered that the clear waters of our ocean may be  mere illusion. Chemical soup simmers below the blue.  Militant environmentalists cry for the closure of the  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper mill at Port Mellon until it  "cleans up its act". The truth is, and this extends only as  far as research has progressed, of course, that the damage  has been done. The dioxins and furans spewed out unchecked over ihe years now sit in the sediment at the bottom of the Sound. Shutting the mill down now will not  clean them up; only time and a covering of clean sediment  will do that.  HSPP is a profit motivated company which, perhaps  through foresight or perhaps mere chance and good luck,  happens to be at least one step ahead of some of the other  pulp and paper mills in Canada in this very new game of  adopting environmentally sound practices. The making of  bleached pulp is, after all by its nature, a dirty business.  If Ihe lax environment laws of the government are ignored with little penalty to the profit motivated company,  it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. However, as things  must change, any more recent attempts by that said company to "clean up its act" by whatever means should be  applauded and acknowledged.  We should not, as a community, slack off in pressuring  HSPP to continue in its present efforts to eliminate dioxins  and furans in its waste; we should not accept the very  limited research now being done on the problem and we  should demand more from our politicians on enforcing  what laws exist and in instituting necessary new ones. But  at the same time, we should give some credit where credit  is due.  That is, credit to the unions whose members' jobs are on  the line; to the management split between the demands of  the unions and the distant upper echelons of a multinational company; to the environmentalists who strive to  educate a sometimes indifferent populace; and to the rest  of the community for whatever its efforts are in saving this  bit of the world and Howe Sound.

I mean the wine of  political excitement is sweeping  over Eastern Europe and entire  populations are drunk with  delight and joy at their new  found political freedom and at  the thought of all the delights  that will bring.  What a wonderful way to  begin a new decade, with  democracy in sudden flower in  tracts of political landscape  which until just very recently  seemed immune to its birth and  development.  Like all intoxicants, new  found freedom, however, can  be very misleading and it is best  just when the joy "seems giddiest  and the exuberance withou|end  to take thought of the monow.  To mix metaphors shamiess-  ly into our very own flguiitive  cocktail, it might be well if we  all sniff these sudden passionate  blooms of democracy with appreciation mixed with more  than a soupcon of caution.  Despite the wild hopes that  attend their birth, revolutions  have a way of proceeding along  paths not entirely foreseen.  Along with political repression,  there have been released in the  nations of Eastern Europe  unlimited hopes for material  improvements in the standard  of life heretofore enjoyed.  Already, there have been expressed misgivings about what  will become of the sorely harried Third World countries if  the attention and aid of the  developed and fortunate world  is diverted to Eastern Europe.  In truth, without the diversion of the hopes of Eastern  The beginning of a new year  is always a time for reflection  and resolution, of recalling past  events that may prove relevant  to the facts as they stand at the  end of the old year and which  may, therefore, feed the zeal for  change eminent in Ihe entering  of the new.  In other words, at the beginning of January every year most  of us, bloated and exhausted  from the festive season, tend to  look back at our lives, pinpoint  where we figure we've gone  wrong and determine to do better - starting tomorrow.  It came to me this year, as I  sat blank and uncomprehending  before my son's new computer  game waiting for divine revelation on how the thing worked,  that where I've obviously gone  wrong in life is in continuing to  fail to read the instruction  manuals that come with things.  Everything I buy, it seems,  comes packaged with a neat little booklet or, in the case of my  A cautious sniff at  democracy's new roses  Europe, precious little has been  done to alleviate Third World  War suffering. Some World  Bank figures indicate that there  has been an increasing transfer  of wealth from the struggling  nations to the wealthy in recent  years.  Meanwhile the birth rate continues to explode and the spectres of famine, disease and  desperation still loom on the  horizon of the global stage.  Exploding along with the  numbers of people on the earth  is the realization that we cannot  continue to lay waste our environment with the kinds of  take-no-heed-of-tomorrow  abandonment which has  characterized our activities in  the past 200 years. But this laying waste is also exponentially  exploding along with the  world's populations and the rising ride of expectations and  demands being made by those  populations.  Balancing these diverse factors is going to be a feat of no  mean achievement, quite  enough of a challenge to occupy  us through the decade of the  90's and well into the 21st Century.  That the balance must be  sought and found is sure.  Desperate people are dangerous  people and if there are  dangerous people in immense  numbers we will pass on to our  offspring a dangerous world indeed.  In Eastern Europe, totalitarian bureaucracies have been  found incapable of governing  efficiently and justly; in the rich  nations of the West, wealth has  been created at a cost to the environment which cannot for  long be sustained.  In addition, the rich and  powerful nations of the West  have shown little interest or success in distributing the produced  wealth in a manner which is  designed to keep a balance in  the world.  So it's best not to feel too  smug about what's happening.  Neither rigid and centralized  control nor free-market forces  are liable to give us a sustainable  future. That may not be apparent at this present heady moment for western democracies.  The chances are it will become  apparent long before the close  of the next decade.  What's being won in Eastern  Europe is the right to select or  reject a government without  violence or without fear of  state-run terrorism. What all the  governments of the world are  going to do about our mounting  problems after they have been  democratically elected is by no  means clear.  So let us sniff the new roses  of democracy with delight and  appreciation. There's a major  victory for the human spirit being won on some considerable  fronts. There are, however,  some daunting challenges ahead  of us with which we have not  yet come properly to grips.  HAPPY-NEW-YEAR  At home with  the handbooks  word processor, a tome weighing a good five pounds, and I  never read them. In fact, I've  always taken a certain perverse  pride in admitting that,  although all are filed neatly  away, these manuals are never,  ever opened or even removed  from their clear plastic  packages.  I guess I've always thought  anything worth bothering with  should be immediately understandable or, maybe, I always  liked the challenge of figuring it  out myself.  But that, I reflected this new  year's, was when times were  simpler and, although it took  longer, putting together an Ikea  chair without instructions, for  example (one of my proudest  moments), was indeed, possible.  Now understanding our everyday household gadgets requires either a careful perusal of  the accompanying manuals or a  degree in electrical engineering.  I resolved, therefore, to begin  reading all the manuals in my  house starting tomorrow.  I will begin, I think, with the  manual for my camera which is,  after all, a tool of my work. It  was bought several years ago in  the flush of a sale of a freelance  article and guaranteed for life,  the salesman said. He pain-  stakenly explained how it worked, handed me a booklet  ("Worth looking into," he said)  and I was on my way.  Unfortunately, it isn't a  camera that is foolproof and  when it petered out several  months ago I took it to the shop  and complained the thing had  broken for no apparent reason.  Had I changed the battery  recently? What battery? So 1  was handed another manual  and, starting tomorrow, I'm going to read it.  Last year's family Christmas  present, after another freelance  article sold, was a VCR. This  was absolutely essential to our  household, I said, for the taping  of all the brilliant programs on  Public TV, the only channel  worth watching after all, but  which we never seemed to get  down to doing.  Now that manual, which  came in at least four languages  and which was illustrated with  complex line drawings of our  machine, was substantial. As a  precautionary measure, I didn't  file that one away but rather  tucked it under the VCR itself  thinking, perhaps, that some  sort of osmosis would take  place, but it didn't.  Consequently the only time I  attempted to tape a Channel 9  program, I ended up with 15  minutes of 'Married...with  Children' and 13 commercials.  As for the new, allegedly indispensable (potentially, that is)  household computer, it comes  with enough manuals to begin a  library. Thank goodness, 1990  has a lot of tomorrows.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  Mtes.au Coast News, January 1,1990  (���Letters to the  Input would have been welcome earlier  Editor:  Concerning the letters  published in condemnation of  tht poster released by the  Mayor's Task Force on Drug  Abuse.  To the authors of these letters  I say, where were you when  concerned memebers of the  community rallied together to  confront a serifiis problem? As  the task force is an open forum,  any truly concerned individual  could easily find out when and  where the meetings are scheduled for, and attend.  Anyone who really believes  that there is a problem that  must be addressed, should surely have stepped forward by now  and offered his or her insights.  Rather this than stepping forward in righteous indignation to  attack those who are making an  attempt to help.  If you are truly as concerned,  about the substance abuse in  our community, as you claim,  then why haven't you stepped  forward with your help, ideas  and support. This would be  much   preferable   to   putting  down the efforts of those who  are willing.  If you fed that this is a well  meaning but misguided campaign and are truly concerned  about the issue, then by all  means step forward. But please  do it within the spirit of cooperation rather than as an attack on those you perceive to be  victimizing a minority.  Perhaps if more people with  differing views had been present  at the task force meetings, then  this poster design may not have  been chosen, for the exact  reasons that you've stated. Or  perhaps chosen in spite of them.  As your opinions are not  necessarily a majority.  It is obvious that you have  looked at the poster and applied  your own fears and prejudices  on your perception of it. You've  decided that it is a long haired  young man. I admit that the  hair is long, I just pray that we  don't see further letters from  blond people, as the hair is long  and blond.  And it is only your own experiences as a young person  whose values are attacked and  ridiculed by the establishment,  that make you perceive this as a  young person being victimized.  Who's to say that the person  caricatured on the poster is  young? The lines on the cheeks  would seem to belie that.  And not only young people  have long hair. 1 could name  dozens of people with long hair  who could not be considered  young, Peter Light included.  For that matter, who's to say  that the picture is a man. You  can be sure that an obviously  female picture would evoke letters from women's groups.  As the designer of the poster  in question, I will say publicly  that I feel it was the poorer of  the two designs submitted. But I  also feel that an attack on the  artwork was unnecessary. The  problem isn't in the design of  the poster, but in the lack of  support by community  members; in their failure to submit their views in an open  forum, in their failure to put  forward an effort.  I can't see how some people  have the nerve to come forward  only when they think that they  and theirs are being discriminated against, instead of coming forward voluntarily to help  alleviate a problem.  I say again, where were you?  If you have a desire to air your  views, please do so in a helpful  way, instead of attacking those  already trying to help.  Wayne Phillips.

Last year, when the RCMP  had its Drinking Driver Counter  Attack display at the mall I asked one of the officers why they  didn't set up their road blocks  right outside the pubs to pick  off obvious suspects as they  came out? The reply was "But  that would interfere with  peoples' right."  Now, what rights are we talking about here? It can't be civil  rights since the roadblocks in  the middle of the highway  already interfere with those by  detaining guilty and innocent  alike. The officer must have  meant the right of free enterprisers to make a profit no  matter what the human cost I As  we all know, this right is enshrined above all others in our  culture.

I'm not advocating prohibition, nor am I against drinking  per se. I just believe that if you  can afford to drink then you  can afford to take a cab home,  or you can walk if the distance  is short.  I also disagree with the long  prohibition marijuana has been  under. Most people under the  age of 50 or so have experienced  the mind-altering states induced  by both alcohol and marijuana  and have observed the effects of  each on their own and others  behaviour and health. Most  would agree that, of the two,  pot is the least destructive.  Anne Miles  SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 46  invites you to attend  '"Creating our.

This resulted in the auxiliary  being able to make a 'first time  ever' donation of $100,000 to  the hospital to assist with the  purchase of equipment not  otherwise funded by govern  ment grants and to supply extra  patient comforts.  The donation was presented  to St. Mary's Hospital Board  Chairman Al Harbord by Peggy  Gallo, president of the St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, on  December 19.  Attending the ceremony held  in St. Mary's were: Alison  Steele, Erika Wright, Mary  Bannerman, Carol Rigby, Chris  Ward, Mary Macdonald, Vivian Tepoorten and Hospital  Administrator Ted Wright.  Members of each branch  have worked diligently all year,  be it at home, knitting, sewing  or cooking or staffing the auxiliaries' hospital Gift Shop and  Thrift Shop.  The Gift Shop with its sales  of patient toiletries and  beautiful knitted items raised  over $6000 while the Thrift  Shop now open five days a week  raised $80,000.  Besides   these  activities,  branch members also gave  volunteer time to in-hospital  services. They provided hair  care, attended to patients'  flowers and plants, distributed  reading material and helped out  in many ways at Totem Lodge.  The hospital auxiliary is an  organization that is working for  the community and appreciates  and acknowleJ|es the generosity of all those who helped to  make this donation possible.

The  water in Lower Gibsons was shut off for several hours while town  crews fixed the leak and reinforced the pipe with concrete.  ���Elton Frith photo  The development of  Ecobrite, the first environmentally safe, anti-stain treatment  for lumber, has won Canfor  Corporation a silver trophy in  the Invention Category of the  1989 Canada Awards for  Business Excellence.  According to Minister of Industry, Science and Technology  Harvie Andre, Ecobrite, "has  considerably improved environmental and health safety in  the lumber and pulp and paper  industries."  Unlike other anti-stain products which utilize harsh  chemicals, including  Chlorophenates, to kill stain  producing mold and fungi,  Ecobrite is a mixture of inorganic salts (Borax and soda  ash), which can be found in  many common household products. It acts by simply creating  a barrier between the lumber  and mold and fungi so they cannot grow.  As a result, a recent Canfor  press release states, 'tests show  that Ecobrite is thousands of  times less toxic than some other  anti-stain treatments.' The press  release also states that  regulatory officials say 'storm  water run-off is therefore not an  environmental concern.'  Canfor's    Director    of  Research and Development, Dr.  Suezone Chow, who led the  development of Ecobrite, says  there have been a "very positive  response from mill workers who  apply Ecobrite."  The product is presently being used at 36 Canadian  sawmills representing around 25  per cent of the market for anti-  stain products.  According to Teri Dawe of  ORCA, the newly formed coalition which includes various environmental groups such as ORCA, Environmental Watch and  Greenpeace, as well as trade  unions such as the Pulp and  Paper Workers of Canada, the  IWA and the BC Federation of  Labour will be meeting on  January S to discuss Ecobrite  and to study the validity of the  claims made in its support.  Regulations for fish drugs  HAPPY NEW YEAR"  TO ALL  THRIFTY'S  HELP THE  GIBSONS  M6-24M or Box 598  ibovs Kant Lucky Dollar. Gibsons  JAN. 3  : Consumer confidence in the  .' quality of BC farmed fish will  : be enhanced by the implementa-  j tion of a new regulatory  I framework for the use of drugs  ��� in aquaculture, Minister of  j Agriculture and Fisheries John  ; Savage announced recently.  ; The new regulations add to  I other aquaculture licensing re-  ! quirements which govern  i aspects of fish farming such as  ' siting and management.  "Antibiotics are sometimes  used in the farming of fish, just  I as they are in the raising of  other farm animals," said  '' Savage. "In normal practice,  ; fish are only treated early in the  salt water rearing period many  months prior to harvest.  "This government has now  enacted guidelines which include a prescribed, lengthy  withdrawal period following a  drug treatment, before fish can  be harvested," Savage continued. "These regulations will  ensure responsible use of these  products by aquaculturists  under the direction of  veterinarians.  "These are the first comprehensive regulations on  therapeutic antibiotic use in fish  farming to be introduced by any  Canadian province," he stated.  "Consumers of BC farmed fish f  can continue to depend on the  excellent quality of this high-  protein food."  The following requirements  are contained in the new  regulatory framework:  a) An aquaculture license  holder shall keep records of any  drugs administered to his/her  fish.  b) When fish are delivered to  a processing facility or to a fish  buying station, the shipment  will be accompanied by a statement which details the most recent drug treatment which has  been administered to those fish.  c) No finfish can be harvesif d  t for 105 days "after a drug tref  The Government  Taketh Away  The Alternative Giveth  This Thurs., Jan. 4, Fri., Jan. 5 & Sat., Jan. 6 Only  Example  SHOP YOUR FINISHING STORE1  WE CANT GIVE ANYMORE!

"We don't need to," said  Brandon, "because a real problem has just come up between  us."  "Oh. Then can we try to  solve the problem now?" They  nodded. "You remember the  steps to be taken? No interrupting or blaming the other person; you agree to listen to each  other and to try some  solution." Both nodded agreement.  And so the problem came out  before the mediator who hap  pened to be the school principal  this time. Paul, it turned out,  had loaned 25 cents to Brandon  and 25 cents to a third boy.  Brandon thought the third boy  had got much easier terms of  repayment. The problem was  addressed by both Brandon and  Paul and a solution selected that  each could accept.  Ann Skelcher, the principal  of Langdale Elementary, had  unobtrusively and effectively  mediated this dispute between  Brandon and Paul. She said the  pupils of Langdale School had  developed mediation they call  peer counselling over the past  three years whereby playground  disputes are successfully settled  by the pupils themselves if they  wished,   or   by   pupils   and  January  mwm  up to $50 off  on Selected Fashions  is Out Our  Bargain Rack - $30  just for you  i-AsuiON boutique  immis Laiulmii   SSd-2470  OPEN HOUSE  1038 Falrview Rd., Gibsons  Deluxe Rancher, many extras. $129,000  Marg Berry, 886-7081 ��� Rob QUI, 885-5454  CENTURY WEST REALTY LTD..

In this system teachers and  principal are not remote  onlookers but, from the sidelines, closely observe the  operating of the system to guide  and encourage the pupils' participation. Without the earnest  support of the teachers the  system would soon wither and  come to nothing.  Following Langdale school's  crisis of several years ago, a  crisis that left three victims  devastated and many others  shaken, school staff and two  successive principals have  striven to build up morale.  Consequently when elementary school counsellor, Fran  Jovick, outlined her peer  counselling program whereby  pupils could learn to mediate  playground disputes by themselves, the Langdale teachers  gladly supported it.  Now three years later not only are playground disputes  mediated but also various other  situations within the school. By  trail and error Langdale school  has developed a program that is  now a model for other schools  in the district.  Cedar Grove has 26 pupils  now trained as peer counsellors,  Gibsons and Sechelt are training  pupils, and in Roberts Creek the  staff is taking training in conflict resolution.  Fran Jovick's program,  which deals with communicating clearly, managing anger,  and resolving conflicts, has been  drawn from a number of  sources, among them a program  in San Francisco.  From Simon Fraser University comes "The purpose of  teaching conflict-resolution  skills is not to show the right  way to respond, nor is it to suppress conflict...but to look at  conflict and find something  benetiual arising from it."  Throughout Langdale school  large posters list the eight steps  to be taken in its problem solving sessions. Added to those  already mentioned are these:  each person tells what his or her  best solution is, then after some  discussion both accept a solution; following that the two  work out a way to implement  the solution, and if that doesn't  work out to come back later to  the counselling table.  Co-operation, responsibility,  positive action and respect are  the key words in this school's  program.  In an article she published it)  the BC Teachers newsmagazine,  Fran Jovick quotes a comment  by a Grade 7 pupil in Langdale.  "I came from Roberts Creek  and peer counselling was new to  me. When I walked around the  school grounds, I saw problems  being solves...like a miracle."  Do we have to wait until these  youngsters grow up to have  thoughtful public meetings  without fisticuffs? And if in  time this system replaces the  adversial law courts, where will  all the lawyers go? We hope.  One thing appears certain  that until the small  neighbourhoods of the world  can handle problems without  anger and bitterness, world  peace is a mere dream.  In the school yard the principal pointed to two boys picking up rubbish. "Yesterday,"  she said, "another pupil persuaded these two to settle a difference by having a fight at the  far end of the play field. After a  session of counselling, they  came to the conclusion that a  fight's not the way to resolve a  problem at Langdale. They  voluntarily decided to pick up  the rubbish as a kind of penalty  they set for themselves."  Blood  needed  During the holiday season,  the Canadian Red Cross is often  faced with a shortage of blood  donors.  On Tuesday, January 2 the  next Sunshine Coast Blood  Donor Clinic will be held in the  Sechelt Legion from 3 to 8 pm  (please note the change in time).  Healthy adults, weighing  more than 43.5 kilograms and  who are between the ages of 17  and 60 are eligible first-time  donors.

KIVLIC  Phone  to  CELLULAR  649-4050  Peace group prepares for;'90's  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  Peace on earth and good will  towards men. That was the  message given to men on the  first Christmas. This is also the  message of the local chapter of  the Sunshine Coasl Peace Committee.  Lynn Chapman, a well  known and outspoken Roberts  Creeker and Peace Committee  member since its inception  spoke to the Coast News about  this local group.  Last spring was the group's  fifth anniversary. It all began at  the Creekhouse Restaurant  when 60 to 70 people turned out  for their first meeting, headed  by and organized by the late  Michael Burns. To date there  are 15 regulars who attend monthly meetings with a much  larger membership of 50 and a  readership of Peace Committee  newsletters of approximately  100.  Public awareness is very important. And how do you get  the message of peace across?  Meetings include guest speakers, videos and the circulation  of Peace News promoting world  Sechelt  Scenario  disarmament. Lynn encourages  people to join their group;  "write letters lo your MP's and  newspapers protesting the arms  race and expenditures on  arms."  As Canadians we must clean  up our own backyard. The Sunshine Coast group is working  closely with the Canadian Peace  Alliance Campaign. One of its  long term protests has been to  support the campaign against  nuclear subs in Nanoose Bay.  Protesting low level flights by  fighter planes in Goose Bay,  Labrador is on the agenda for  this year. Keeping Canadian air  space Canadian and free of  planes designed to deliver  nuclear weapons is the purpose  of this protest.  This year's Peace Walk will  take place April 21 in Vancouver. It begins at Kitsilano  Beach and ends up at Sunset  Beach. This is a very popular  event and the Sunshine Coast  has always had a very large and  enthusiastic turnout of locals  take part in this walk.

Ecjmont  News  Egmont  celebrated  by Dixie Percy, 883-9206  Well, phewl There goes  another Christmas and Egmont  celebrated, by all accounts, with  one of the most enjoyable  Christmas parties yet. Pity the  few who missed it, like myself.  Visions of sugarplums dance  in my head whenever someone  tells me what a great time they  had. Not only was there more  delicious food than you could  shake a stick at, there was  musical entertainment provided  by our own quartet of Denny,  Sue, Janet and Dave.  Santa was on hand, of  course, with presents for all the  kiddies - no mean feat, and Ted  and Bobbe Erbby were there to  everyone's delight. What a pleasant note to end the year on.  Thanks to everyone who contributed their time and efforts.  Now it's 1990 and time to  work on all of those New Year's  resolutions. I have a few myself,  I just hope I can stick with them  for longer than two weeks.  There have been some big  boats passing through Egmont  lately but it's hard to miss the  new boat in town, the Nordic  Rami. Welcome to her owners,  Marty and Deb Tucker and  their little baby Laura May.  They are putting their own  finishing touches on and moving into Ky and Olga Silvey's  old place.  The folks at the Fritz Family  Restaurant are doubly thrilled  at the arrival of not one but two  new little granddaughters. John  and Cheryl Fritz of Fort  McMurray, Alberta had Chelsea Lynn, on December 21 and  Peter and Denise Fritz of  Madeira Park had Kayla May  on December 23.  1 may be hard to reach during  the month of January so if you  have any information you  would like to pass on, just leave  me a note at the Egmont Pott  Office.  That's all for this week. A  happy and prosperous New  Year to all.

Then the  woman caller said she could tell  1 didn't believe her, and gave  me a number to call to confirm  it. I even looked up the Festival  of the Written Arts number  before I dialed it to make sure.  And what did Rob do next?  "I immediately went out and  bought lottery tickets! But I  didn't win."  Not a bad Christmas present  to take home to the family.  What did Rob say to his wife,  Jackie?  "Well, first I told her I had  bought a raffle ticket. Then I  told her the good news."

January Clearance  ** Sale A<',"ss",i"s  Blouses  continues at  ^^^^^ sechell  Shoes  Slacks  Deported to disaster  by Peter Trower  The word has spread quickly  about Herb Wilson's release. At  almost every stop, the by-now  half-legendary crime boss is  beseiged by a fresh phalanx of  excited reporters. More flattered than annoyed, be answers  their queries patiently in the  precise scholarly voice that suggests far more education than  he actually possesses.  Some of the other deportees  -small time hoods for the most  part, with no flashy reputations  to boast, look on with a certain  respect. They are travelling with  an underworld celebrity.  At Chicago, the Canadian  deportees are transferred to a  Grand Trunk train, bound for  Windsor, Ontario. Wilson has  time for a brief reunion with his  sister Violet and her husband  before his train heads for the  Detroit border crossing.  He also becomes friendly  with a reporter named Barney  Armstrong who has been sent  down from a Toronto newspaper to interview him. Armstrong elects to ride back to  Canada with Wilson.  A hitch develops at the  Detroit border however. Official consent for Herb Wilson's  re-entry to Canada has not yet  been received from Ottawa. As  a result, he is forced to remain  at the Immigration Offices  while all the others pass  through. For four days he hangs  in legal limbo - quite literally a  'man without a country'.  The frustrating delay gives  Wilson plenty of time to think.  Gazing through the window at  the outskirts of Detroit, he  remembers wryly how his whole  criminal odyssey began here  with Herb Cox and Lou, almost  two decades before.  What a strange and prophetic  turning point that had been.  Now Cox is long dead on the  Bridge of Sighs and Lou, who  was never apprehended perished  in a shootout during an abortive  robbery, a few months after the  others were taken.  What a crazy waste it all was.  What did it gain any of them in  the end? Shaking his head,  Herb Wilson turns away from  the window.  Finally the necessary papers  on Wilson come through from  Ottawa and he receives the news  with a great deal of relief.  Shortly after, Herb Wilson sets  foot on Canadian soil again for  the first time in many years. He  boards another train and heads  for London, unaccompanied at  last, by either guards, other ex-  prisoners or police. It is a heady  feeling to take charge of his own  destiny again.

Rhythms  of Life  I  Into the 1990's  Coast News, January 1,1990  by Penny Fuller  Sechelt Seniors  Block 7 site  discussed  by Larry Grafton  The first meeting with regard  to negotiations on the proposed  lease site on Block 7, between  the Municipality and Branch 69  Mas held in the Municipal Hall  al 9 am on Da-ember 14. Those  on the negotiating team, and  present, were Mayor Tom  Meredith, Alderman Bob  Graham, Administrator Malcolm Shanks, Seniors' President  Mike Timms, President-elect  John Miller and Len Herder.  To dale of course, nothing is  carved in stone. Discussion centred on conforming building  design, use of the multifunction centre, terms of the  lease, start-up of building construction after the referendum  (to be held in early 1990) parking, landscaping, sewer, water  etc. Further meetings are planned early in the New Year.  The new activity centre will  remain a Seniors Activity Centre administered by Branch 69.  HEALTH DROP-IN  Our new first vice-president,  Gerry Chailler is in Ihe process  ol' initiating a new health drop-  in centre. For a start it will be  held in our present hall.  The plan is to enlarge the program when our new activity  centre is completed. Such a program can be quite beneficial to  all seniors, whether members or  not, and particularly to our  'older seniors'.  This will be a mutual aid program focussing on self-care and  will offer seniors a place to gel  information and support for  keeping well. The program will  probably be held once a week,  and al the same place and lime,  which will be governed for a  start, al least, by available space  in our present hall.  A variety of professional and  retired resource people will be  sought lo give individual  counselling. When developed,  Ihis program can help all seniors  or the community lo obtain  referral information to appropriate community services.  They will, in turn, be able to  obtain the support necessary to  develop a personal plan for  keeping well.  The main purpose of the  healt drop-in is to encourage  seniors in our community, particularly the more elderly, to  take what steps are available to  .them to remain in their own  homes for an extended'period  of time. The intent is to  postpone, as long as possible,  (he eventual tenure in Intermediate Care or Extended  Care facilities.  The foregoing information  has been supplied by our first  Vice-President, Gerry Chailler,  who will be glad to extend further information to anyone  seeking more detail.  Keep in mind thai the program when initialed will not be  limited to branch members.  Gerry's phone number is  886-3728.  Welcome to the last decade of  the 20th century. Lots of people  believed we'd never make it, for  lots of different reasons.  Sometimes I get the feeling  that if we can make it to the  year 2000, everthing's going to  be okay - rather like the bridge  in the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  If we can just make it over that  bridge without the spectre of  nuclear war, pollution or  natural disaster catching us,  we'll be safe. The bridge is now  in sight.  The last two months of 1989  was replete with world-changing  events which I can say with absolute certainty (in retrospect) I  could have predicted.  There is no question that we  arc all in a lime of accelerated  change - both internationally  and individually. In August  1987, an event occurred which  saw millions of people all over  the world congregate in the face  of media mockery and ridicule  lo mediate and pray for worldwide healing. The 'Harmonic  Convergence'on August 16 and  17 of that year, was said lo be  the lime indicated by Hopi  legend and the Mayan calendar  marking Ihe beginning of a five-  year period of rapid change and  polarization of energies.  Mid-February, 1990 marks  the halfway point in thai lime  frame. On a world-wide basis,  ihe slower-moving outer planets  (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and  Pluto) which indicate generational as well as personal trends,  reflect the major house cleaning  lhat is taking place all over the  world.  As Pluto continues lo grind  its way through the middle of  Scorpio, we will continue lo see  long-concealed abuses of power  exposed. Meanwhile, Uranus  and Neptune move through  Capricorn indicating that structures (such as the Berlin Wall,  banks, churches and governments) will either dissove or  blow-up.  No, I am nol suggesting thai  by Ihis lime next year we will  not have any banks, churches or  governments. But those aspects  - of (he structures' which are corrupt, dishonest and restrict the  fulfillment of individual's  potential will continue to be exposed and disgarded.  At the same time during 1990  Saturn, which upholds established structures and social  orders, will also be in Capricorn  as we're likely to be dealing with  some backlash until it moves into Aquarius in 1991.  On a more personal basis, as  (he pace of change increases and  you are confronted with situations you would have preferred  lo avoid, you may feel overwhelmed by events in your life  during the upcoming year.  There's no point in trying to  keep things ihe way (hey have  been, or hold onto things lhat  may have been restricting your  personal development (whether  or not you're aware of it). It will  have about as much affect as  stopping lo reason wilh the  'Headless Horseman'. If you  can allow the changes, lei go of  things, situations, people,  etcetera thai seem determined to  change and/or leave, Ihe void  which is left will be filled. The  indications are, for most of us,  lhat it will be filled with  something much better and  much more life supportive.  Il doesn't matter whether it's  a job, a dream, a relationship or  your self-image. During the  next year, when you're confronted with the possible loss of  something you value, il will be  important lo let go, look within  yourself, and try to make  whatever changes are necessary  10 open yourself lo the full  potential of the 21st century.  Six months ago, if I had written that the Berlin Wall would  come down, you would have  thought I was full of hot air (at  best).  Now I am saying that your  potential is more vast than you  can possibly comprehend at ihis  moment. If you will allow  changes lo lake place in your  life without extreme resistance,  if you find the courage lo look  into your own dark comers this  year and acknowledge thai  you're nol a saint yet, you will  break down Ihe restrictive barriers within yourself allowing an  infinite range of possibilities to  jriirue in. - '  ���,Ha'ppy 'WO-  Mall Display and  Registration  Community members can get information  and register for courses al the mall displays  in Sechelt and Gibsons on Saturday,  January 6.

Or, on those rare but wonderful sunny days,  sit at the picnic tables provided and let the youngster (and  everybody else too) dig into hamburgers, hotdogs, fish and  chips, pizzas, chicken, thick and delicious milkshakes and all  kinds of ice cream desserts. Actually, Ernie and Gwen's is a  great place to go even if you haven't got a car full of kids!  And Ernie and Owen's also provides free delivery after 6  pm on a minimum order of $10 which is a handy service to  have when you are too tired to cook and too tired to go out.  In our household, it's used a lot.  The other day, for example, we were celebrating a birthday, which is an exhausting process at the best of times but  after a full day at the office...well, time to call Ernie and  Owen's! We ordered a fish burger, a deluxe cheeseburger, ���  medium vegetarian pizza, a large order of onion rings, one  small order of fries and three chocolate milkshakes. It was  delivered promptly right to the door and we dipped into our  pockets a mere S17.25 for what seemed like a feast with pizza  left over to microwave the next day.  The food at Ernie and Owen's is consistently good, the service provided by the young staff is friendly and helpful and  the drive-m's convenient location and home delivery makes it  a much appreciated alternative to a sit-down restaurant or a  ttomecooked meal.

On major routes, the regular  passenger fares are going up 25  cents; care fares, 50 cents; commercial vehicle fares, 15 cents a  foot; and bus fares will be raised 10 cents a foot.  The new fare for overheighl  vehicles will be $23, a 50 cent increase for a one-way trip, and  the cost for a car and driver on a  round trip lo the Sunshine  Coast will be $22.50, up from  $21.75.  There is good news for  children in this tariff, however,  added Rita Johnston, Minister  of Transportation and  Highways and minister responsible for BC Ferries, when she-  made the rale increase announcement last month, "for  the second year in a row, there  will be no increase in the regular  fare for children ages 5 to 11."  On the major routes it will remain at $2.25.  "It is essential lhat BC Ferries maintain a sound financial  base for the on-going and future  operation of the fleet,"  Johnston said.

FIRST COLUMN  First of all I would like to  thank Jean Robinson for asking  me to take over her column. She  has been doing such an excellent  job. It will be a challenge to  carry on.  On behalf of everyone in  Davis Bay, thank you Jean.  However, you will still be hearing from her as she intends to  do an occasional nature column. Keep your eyes and ears  peeled and report anything of  interest you see to her at  885-2954.  KIRKLAND CENTRE  Good news from Sarah  Dusenbury.

The  guest speaker will be Jacob  Knaus who will show pictures  and talk about Sri Lanka.  Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon is  an island situated 50 miles off  the southeast coast of India. It  is a beautiful island, chiefly  agricultural with a wide variety  of vegetation. About 72 per cent  of the population is Sinhalese  Buddhists with the largest  minority group, the Tamils.  Jacob lived in Sri Lanka for a  time. It should be interesting to  hear about the country and its  people.  STORY HOUR  There has been no requests  for story hour. It seems the  children who were attending  have outgrown 'his and have  moved on to kindergarten. If  you are new to the area and  wish to meet other mothers, get  in touch with the library. The  readers are great. It seems a  shame not to make use of them.  BRIDGE  Bridge at the hall takes place  on the second and fourth  Fridays of the month. They are  back to the usual starting time  of 1 pm.  POTLUCK DINNER  pie annual Potluck Dinner  ' and'Christmas tree burning will  be held at the hall on Sunday,  January 7 at 6 pm sharp.  Everyone is welcome. Bring  your friends and neighbours  and any visitors you still have.  Bring a casserole and/or  some goodies. The usual dessert  will be provided. If you have  any talent you would like to  share bring that along also.  NEWS A VIEWS  It's not hard to find out the  news in Davis Bay but I would  like to hear from you about  your views.  There is a lot happening in  Davis Bay. I couldn't believe it  when I drove up Bay Road.  There was a pile of new houses,  some still being built but others  lived in already. What would  you like to see done along the  waterfront? What don't you  want to see? Let's hear some of  your views.  For those who know me,  sometimes it seems like I am  never home. I am, but the best  time to call is early in the morning before 9 and between 9:30  and 10 pm.  As the deadline for this column is Thursday noon, I will  plan on being home Thursday  mornings. Hope to hear from  you,  SCRD  directors  get wage  raise  hyPe���yFafcr  In wrapping up business for  1989, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District Board voted  themselves a raise, giving first,  second and third reading to bylaw 331. The by-law provides  for an increase in the annual  remuneration to Board Chairman Peggy '"'"���m, atM ip-  proxirruudy $10,009 !��� ���num  to $20,000 per annum.  In the past, the vice-chairman  was paid the same rate m other  area directors but beginning this  year, that position, held by Cordon Wilson, will include the  responsibilities of chairing the  finance and personnel committees for which he will recieve a  flat rate of $15,000.  Other area directors will see  an increase from $6000 to $7000  per annum with an additional  $2000 being paid to each committee chair, but each director  will only be allowed to receive  that bonus for one appointment.  Municipal representatives will  receive $5000 a year, up 25 per  cent over last year's $4000 stipend.  In discussing the raises with  the Coast News, Chairman  Peggy Connor said there had  been much debate over the increases but these were held in-  camera.  The board also received the  new committee appointments  for 1990. Brett McGillivray will  chair the planning, animal control and the joint use committees, as well as the Provincial  Emergency Program.  Jim Gurney is once more  chairman of the Public Utilities  Committee, property management and the Sunshine Coast  Environmental Task Force.  Stan Dixon retains his chair  on the Parks Committee, and  Gordon Wilson will continue to  chair the Foreshore Advisory  Task Force in addition to his  duties as vice-chair.  1 Gibsons Alderman Gerry  Dixon will chair the Transporta-  ���jbj lion Committee.

And  that is, lo wish a Guid New  Year tae one and all, and mony  may ye see...translation is not  necessary since it is toned down  from the original and can  hopefully be understood by  everyone.  May you all have a healthy  and happy year as ihis new  decade begins.  This is the first Christmas  thai 1 have missed the Half-  moon Bay School Christmas  concert as we were away for  thai week. Sorry lo have missed  what was probably a delightful  evening.  We spent Ihe week with family in the San Jose area and  heard some quite hair-raising  stories about earthquake experiences as well as viewing  some of the damage incurred.  Bui among all the dreadful  tales there was one which really  didn't have anything lo do with  earthquakes but which turned  out to be a good one.  This friend owns a big golden  retriever, a gentle well behaved  dog. Their next door neighbour  with whom the family are very  friendly, had a pel while rabbit.  One day Ihe dog came home  with the rabbit in ils mouth, not  blood stained, but dead.  They didn't want to tell the  neighbour lhat their dog had  killed this special rabbit so ihey  cleaned il all up and in the evening slipped over to the house  and placed Ihe rabbil in ils  hutch.  Next morning the rabbil  owner appeared at Ihe neighbour's door, a stiff drink in  hand and trembling sightly.  "Something very wierd has happened. A couple of days ago the  rabbit died and I buried it in the  yard," says he. Needless to say,  ihe dog owner did nol confess  ihe irue story and the rabbit  owner is still mystified.  As ihe saying goes - 'only in  California'.  AT THE HAIL  Welcome Beach Community  Hall has been a busy spot  throughout the Christmas and  New Year period. A noon time  Christmas dinner was served to  some 30 people during which  the Sunshine Choristers gave a  selection of enrols and  Christmas songs. Santa presented everyone with a little gift  and a most enjoyable afternoon  was had by all.

Correction  In praise of Half moon Bay Post Office  Editor:  Re: Halfmoon Bay Post Office.  As former Postmistress I fed  compelled to add my comments. The Halfmoon Bay Post  Office serves over 700  households, a remarkable increase of over 60 per cent in five  years, and it appears there is no  end in sight.  The post office is ideally  located to serve area residents.  If  Canada  Post   wishes  to  enhance its service by adding  rural franchises, fine, but not at  the expense of reducing existing  service.  Notwithstanding the transfer  of mail sortation to Sechelt,  Mrs. Lucas is still required to  have trained staff on duty to  provide all the counter services  of any other post office. Her  workload is not substantially  reduced, and in my view, the  compensation offered is grossly  fywtdU    ft  Devlin Funeral Home offers a complete range of pre-arranged  funerals: traditional funerals with burial or cremation, memorial  services, direct cremation service, graveside funerals, or transfer  to other localities.  For those who wish to pre-pay funeral expenses, Devlin's have  a government licensed & audited prepaid funeral plan. 100% of  funds paid are placed in an interest-bearing trust account.

The post office has been an  integral part of this community  for many years, and the public  have beat generally well served.  Canada Post was aware of my  pending resignation three months ago.  The typically bureaucratic  manner in which they have  handled this whole matter, and  resulting controversy is most  upsetting. In the unibrtunate  event the post office closes it  will be Canada Post's fault for  not paying Mrs. Lucas a fair  wage for all the work she is required to do.  For obvious reasons, I urge  any retailer contemplating a  postal franchise to very carefully consider all the pros and cons  before entering into any contract.  Marine R. Nelson  Halfmoon Bay, BC  Guide commended  Editor:  I should like to commend to  your readers The Canadian  Green   Consumer's  Guide,  prepared by the Pollution Probe  Foundation and published by  McClelland & Stewart Inc. For  only $14.95 one can possess in a  single easy-to-read volume as  complete a summary of the  basic elements of our environmental problems as the  average citizen would wish to  know plus a practical guide to  what that same citizen can do  about it in everyday life.  Written in practical, unbiased  straight-forward language with  plenty of illustrations and en-  capsuled summaries, the book  explains the various types of  pollution we face (land, water  and air), the waste or overuse of  resources, and the threat to our  food from direct and indirect  chemicalization and contamination.  In each case, it relates these  problems to the things we do,  the goods we buy and the food  we eat and offers suggestions as  to how we can make a difference by changing our consumption habits.  This eminently readable book  is subdivided in such a way that  it can be picked up for casual  reading at any time at virtually  any page with the guarantee  that five minutes reading (or  even skimming) will yield interesting and useful information.  The book should be on every  book .and magazine stand, in  every library, waiting room and  classroom, and on every home  book shelf.  Harold G. Brandreth  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.

Lynn Chapman  Down the creek  Editor:  Have you ever slopped beside  a little creek  In the thickest pari of the  forest.  Watched Ihe cool rich water  Slip along Ihe lime moss  banks.  While beneath the flow, life  teams  Among a potpourri of leaves  and things.  Thai heavy scent of life and  warmth  Aching in your senses,  Would twirl your thoughts  on a leaf.  Down, down Ihe little creek.  W.J. Dejarlis  tjfer Annual Burns Night  tfS& at Gibsons Legion  Editor:  I would like to correct a  misunderstanding that was  printed in your newspaper some  weeks ago, that the SPCA owns  property, gives shots and  deworming We encourage people to have this done but we certainly do npt own property. It  would be very nice if we did.  We do give out certificates  that pay part of the cost of  spaying and neutering. It is to  encourage people that cannot  afford to get it done, to do so.
