February 22,1982 Volume 36, Number 8  I  Jamie Davidson's Grade One and Two students enjoyed a rare treat last week.

It looks now that we may be  getting somewhere." Gibsons Alderman and former  mayor Larry Labonte presented a tank farm pro-  MMl to th Btginatl^diMt*.^ stormetitav,  to initiate steps to create an-industrial bulk   . The cost of building such a facility  storage facility at Port Mellon.  A Regional flbard committee has been formed,  Wider the chairmanship of Area C director Charles  Lee, to study the proposal. Alternate Area C director  Jon McRae, Area E director Jim Gurney, and Area F  director David Hunter, are also on the committee.  The proposal is. to purchase 22 acres of waterfront  property from Construction Aggregates gravel industry on West Howe Sound. It would provide sites  for bulk storage of petroleum products of the four  major companies distributing on the Sunshine Coast:  Imperial Esso, located at Hopkins Landing, Shell Oil  in Gibsons, Standard Oil at Davis Bay and Gulf Oil  at Pender Harbour.  Labonte told the Coast News that the tank farm  proposal has been spurred on by the desire of Gibsons village to remove the potentially dangerous and  unsightly Shell Oil bulk storage tanks out of lower  Gibsons. Waterfront tanks for marine oriented products, such as the Esso tanks at Hyak Marine in  lower  Gibsons,   would  have  to  be  replaced  underground to conform with safety standards for  marine outlets.  The Sechelt Indian Band, In a study commissioned  by them in 1975, proposed a tank farm site on reserve  land near Porpoise Bay, with off-loading facilities at  Trail Bay near Wharf Avenue and pipes to carry the  wasesttiriati  at $2 million and the amount of fuel supplied to tl  coast in 1975 was 11 million gallons of gasoline, furnace oil, stove oil, diesel and aviation fuel.  Estimating the population growth of the Coast to be  3.8% per annum, the amount of fuel consumed in  1982 was estimated at 14 million gallons annually and  16 and 1/2 million gallons in 1986.  Sechelt band chief Calvin Craigan told the Coast  News that the companies did not express any interest  in following through with the Indian band proposal.  However, recently, all four companies have responded with "letters of interest" to Alderman Labonte's  proposal. Canadian Propane, with storage tanks at  Roberts Creek, has not been approached to participate, as yet. j  The 22 acre site would be purchased by the  Regional Board, strata-titled and sold to individual  companies. Other hazardous and oversized materials  such as bulk concrete and chlorine tank cars used at  Port Mellon's Canfor mill, could also be stored  there, creating a much needed industrial bulk  material storage site on the Sunshine Coast.  Undetermined damage  George Skea makes his point at last week's regional  board planning meeting. (See adjacent story)  Lee central  Furor over  Airport  Two of three Gibsons representatives on the  Gibsons-Sechelt Airport Advisory Commission  resigned last week, stating they objected to participating in the commission "as long as Mr. Charles  Lee has anything to do with the airport in any way,  shape or form".  Len Wray and Doug Dickson both left the  February 4th meeting of the commission after a  disagreement ensued over the appointment of an airport project manager who would receive "a token  fee, $5,000, for services rendered to supervise the expansion and renovations taking place at the airport",  according to Dickson. Charles Lee is Sechelt village  representative to the airport committee.  A recent grant from the provincial government has  created funds for clearing brush, expanding the runway, creating new parking areas and general  upgrading at the airport. The Aero Club hangar  created a furor last year when it was discovered it was  positioned too close to the proposed taxiway for a  Class C airport and built over a Regional District  water main.  Dickson informed the Coast News that recent  discussions with the Ministry of Transport allowed  the hangar to remain in its present location, but the  airport classification had to be changed to Class D.  Bill Hughes, the third Gibsons representative on  the commission, stated that "it is a practical suggestion to have an on-site manager to supervise the construction phase. Basically, the problem seems to be a  personality conflict."  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch told the Coast News that  he received Len Wray's letter of resignation, but  hasn't had a chance to meet yet with Alderman  Charles Lee, who has been out of town.  Battling builder  Skea slams  stop orders  "The building-hupedor 1J luttg stop work orderl  the way I use the telephone," local builder George  Skea told the regional board planning meeting last  week. Skea was referring to the regional board planning inspector J. Morris-Reade.  Skea told the regional directors that the four instances of stop work order being slapped on his  houses under construction, later to be rescinded,  were four of many examples that he could give.  On two of the occasions outlined by Skea he was in  the presence of clients when the building inspector  applied his stop work order and left without explanation. On one occasion, after regional director Jim  Gurney had taken a hand in the matter, the stop  work order was rescinded the next morning.  According to Skea, Gurney had assured him that  everything that he was doing was within the building  code.  "The building inspector must have the right to affix stop work orders," said Skea, "but I am opposed  to the abuse of that right. I have had enough of this  man's attitude and enough of his stop order."  Stating that he did not wish to take sides in the  matter, Director Gurney suggested that it be referred  to the management committee for disposition.'  Semi smashes house  A semi-trailer owned by Sunshine Transport crashed into the home of Russell and Janice Robertson,  Highway 101 in lower Gibsons, Saturday night at  9:30 p.m. The trailer, which was not loaded, was  travelling down the Highway 101 hill and failed to  Trail update  A motion to apply for the gazetting of  Redrooffs trail exactly as it was, passed  unanimously at a meeting of the Halfmoon Bay  Ratepayers' Association last Sunday.  Also in attendance was E. Kunzler of North  Vancouver on whose property barriers across  the trail were recently erected. Kunzler applied  for membership in the association.  Also passed by unanimous vote was a vote of  confidence in the present executive of the  ratepayers of Area B and in their actions on  behalf of the association.  Health meeting  The next meeting of the Coast-Garibaldi  Union Board of Health will be held on Thursday, March 4th, 1982 at 11:00 a.m. at the  - Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit offices at 1538  South Fletcher Road.  Chatelech growth  School Board secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  reported Saturday that the funds for the expansion of Chatelech Secondary school which had  been frozen by government order, have been  sent to the Treasury Board for approval. Mills  told the Coast News that, "We expect to hear  the verdict on Tuesday".  The Chatelech expansion has Heen delayed a  month already.  negotiate the sharp curve of the highway in the area  of Seaview Road. It continued to travel straight  ahead and demolished the bathroom, utility room  and carport of the Robertson residence, as well as  three vehicles in the driveway.  The driver, Tom Katinic, 28, was uninjured in the  crash and was able to walk away from the accident.  Damage to the semi-trailer was estimated at $15,000,  to the three Robertson vehicles at $12,000 and an  undetermined amount to the house. Neither the  Robertsons, who were both at home watching TV,  nor any residents of their rooming house, were injured in the crash.  The Robertsons told the Coast News that their  location is the scene of "three or four accidents a  month", usually smaller vehicles faijing to negotiate  the steep curve of the highway at the foot of their  driveway. They stated they have asked the Highways  Department to place concrete barriers to protect their  property, but have been refused on the grounds that  a barrier may create more accidents at that corner.  Investigating RCMP Officer C. Clark told the  Coast.News that the driver appeared to lose his steering and did not have an opportunity to gear down or  apply his brakes. No charges have been laid against  the driver and the semi-trailer has been'seized for further investigation.  2.  _  !  ^*\\u*a*ii  ���&> TO  'ryW��:  1  MssaH^m. .ijstamMMma  "������F" - .-'.;-  !

The Robertson home was partly demolished Saturday evening when a semi-trailer failed to negotiate the  curve coming down the Highway 101 hill into lower Gibsons. There were no injuries in the accident.  Sechelt man spearheads successful drive  The drive for a permanent source of funds for the  S.P.C.A., instigated by former Sechelt mayor Merv.  Boucher, has been an unqualified success. The  minimum goal of $5,000, to be matched by Boucher  with funds from a charitable trust he administers, has  already been reached. Donations have been received  from all areas of the Sunshine Coast, including a very  generous gift from Julius Sorensen of Gibsons.  Several persons, including Myra Moyer of Roberts  Creek, Agnes Bjur, Sechelt and Kay Hatcher of  Pender Harbour, have volunteered to canvass. They  report a very friendly reception.  The S.P.C.A. executive is so pleased with the  public's response that it has decided to try to pay its  day-to-day expenses out of normal revenue and permit this special fund to grow as rapidly as possible,  the ultimate aim being to acquire its own premises.  With the help and advice of banker Gerry Kirsch,  Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, it is investing  all donations to this special fund in Term Deposits  paying 16'/i%. Neither the S.P.C.A. nor Boucher  are charging for administering this fund, consequently every dollar received goes towards the care of  animals in this area.

Yet again we find the Americans  throwing their power and their  reputation into the business of supporting an unpopular government  which clings to power against the  wishes of the majority of its people.  Since Vietnam we have seen the  same stubborn support in a losing  and unworthy cause for the Shah of  Iran and we might be permitted to  wonder if the Americans are capable  of learning from the stream of  foreign policy blunders they have  committed since the end of the Second World War.  The Vietnam-like ingredients are  all there: the unpopular regime, the  American aid and the American ad  visors; the arming of Ihe advisors,  the determined adherence to a  domino theory which sees the struggle as being part of a Russian-  American conflict rather than the  struggle for justice and self-  determination that most observers  feel to be the case.  NDP leader Ed Broadbent was  asked on the Don Harron Show  recently if the Americans had learned nothing. He replied that there  was a disturbing body of opinion in  the American ruling circle which  maintained that the lesson of Vietnam was that the Americans had not  hit hard enough in their attempt to  control the Vietnamese.  One remembers the napalm bombing, the chemical defoliants and  the hundreds of thousands killed in  that brutal and futile war. If that  wasn't enough, one shudders at the  possibilities for El Salvador.  An unappreciated pearl  Mayor Bud Koch's implied  challenge to supporters of the Arts  Centre "...to support the Arts  Council and encourage its expansion...", at last week's Sechelt  Council meeting, was the first volley  of what will hopefully become a  spirited debate over the importance  of the Arts Centre to the whole community.  To the Arts Council, the issue is  crucial. The Arts Centre has breathed new life into the community since  it opened more than two years ago.  It has brought high quality visual  arts to a community that was  something less than a cultural Mecca. It has featured musical programs  that previously would have been  unavailable to local residents. Its  need to expand is obvious. It is  simply too small to house the kind  of production it has been offering.  The Sechelt Council on the other  hand appears to believe that public  works yards and parking lots for  works vehicles are more important.  Clearly implied in the comments of  both Mayor Koch and Alderman  Brown is the belief that most of the  residents of Sechelt are not interested enough in the cultural programs at the Arts Centre to give up  their public works yard. The mayor  may be right.  This latest struggle between the  arts lovers and the Philistines certainly offers the perfect opportunity  to see who is right. Let's hope the  mayor has underestimated the people of his village.  ...from the flies of the COAST NEWS  S YEARS AGO  The annual general meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society held in  Sechelt on Thursday, February  17th, learned that after the usual  slow period following the  Christmas season the Minibus  Service is now carrying a full  complement of passengers on  most days.  For those of you who are interested in numbers, the service  carried 774 passengers during  the month of January and the  minibus travelled 3,348 miles.  10 YEARS AGO  A real battle with a tight vote  is expected on the Recreation  Centre vote by Larry Labonte,  past president of Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce.  He made this forecast at Monday night's meeting. He added  that there were many working  for It, including the Port Mellon  union. Members voted support  for the centre.  15 YEARS AGO  The Provincial Home Acquisition Grant Act was Introduced  by the Minister of Finance In the  provincial legislature on Feb. 3  and Hon. Isabel Dawson has Informed the Coast News that she  will be pleased to follow up personal enquiries respecting this  grant.  The main features of the bill:  It is retroactive to April 1,  1966, which means that a person can qualify for the grant for  a home acquired since that  date.  20 YEARS AGO  The old fashioned nib pens  which have adorned the post office lobbies for the last half century have seen their last days.  According to an announcement  released by the postmaster-  general, Hon. William Hamilton,  the nib pens being used on lobby counters In post offices are  to be replaced by modern ball  point pens.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's oldest .taxi  business, French's, has been  sold to Harry Sawyer, a partner.  Frank French started his taxi  business In 1930 and for some  years held the only taxi licence  in that area. Roads were extremely elementary in those  days and at one time there was  none to Pender Harbour. Patients who wished transportation were taken part-way by  French's taxi and transferred to  rowboats. Twice during such  trips, the stork caught up to the  taxi.  30 YEARS AGO  Breakwaters at Roberts  Creek, Gibsons and Sechelt, will  have to wait a long time before  they come Into being.  This was the crux of James  Sinclair's hint when discussing  the question at a public meeting  in Gibsons, Wednesday.  "Defense work, which uses up  construction material, will have  to take precedence," he said. "I  can't give you any hope on the  breakwaters. It all depends on  the money available and the  uses to which it has to be put.  Defense of the nation comes  first."  35 YEARS AGO  Eight-year-old Barry Davis  was seriously injured on  February 13th, when he chopped  his arm while cutting kindling.  The sharp hatchet he was using  severed an artery and two tendons in his arm. Dr. A. Inglis attended the lad after he arrived at  Gibsons Landing, which was  some hours after the accident  occurred.  The doctor was unable to  reach Roberts Creek because of  the mud, so Allan Brines took  the injured boy In his truck  through to Gibsons.  urnsi de  Oa Capital Punishment  The world is a hard  place to keep cheery in  these days, and, it seems,  getting harder.  A topic was brought to  my reluctant mind this  week, by a spillover into  the pages of this  newspaper of a controversy irresponsibly  sponsored by another  newspaper, which is  possibly indicative of a  deepening pessimism in  our society.  The spillover controversy concerns capital  punishment. We have  two letters this week, one  on either side of the  question and readers  may wish to consider the  two points of view with  as much rationality as  can be summoned up on  an rawly emotional  issue.  Let it be clearly said at  the outset that I am opposed to capital punishment primarily because  there are no statistics in  any country in which it  has been abolished to in-,  dicate that its absence  causes an increase in the  incidence of murder. It  cannot be rationally held  that execution is a deterrent to murder. What  reason, then, is there for  ritualized murder by the  state?  After a particularly  brutal and horrifying  series of murders such as  we have just been made  aware of involving Clif  ford Olson, there is  always a rise in the emotional temperature. It is  as natural and as inevitable as the taking of  breath. It is also inevitable, at such times of  heightened emotion, that  judgement is impaired.  Among the buzz  words favoured by those  who would see the return  of the death penalty is  the term "bleeding  hearts'. Those of us who  oppose the death penalty  are apparently held to be  namby-pambies, weak  sisters who lack the  courage to have someone  unknown to us kill someone unknown to us. It  is not a sign of strength  to call for a killing. It is  indicative more of fear  and a seeking of  vicarious revenge than of  any strength of  character.  You may feel a little  braver after you've made  sure that everybody  knows that you are not a  'bleeding heart' but you  really aren't. You're a  frightened person  blustering irrationally  and in ignorance.  One is not opposed to  violence because of  squeamishness alone.  One is opposed to  violence because it  doesn't work, never has  worked, never will work.  There have been many  centuries and many  societies in which people  weren't  just  executed  -and executed for many  crimes - but their still  twitching corpses were  dragged through the  public streets and portions of them stuck on  poles as a stern warning  to the possible wrongdoer. Never did such  measures bring us to a  world free of violence.  On the contrary, they fed  the blood lust that lurks  within us all and made  more, not fewer,  murderers.  It is irresponsible to  abuse the privilege of  publication to raise such  a matter at such at time.  It is a pathetically blatant attempt to appear  tough minded and relevant when there is no  evidence to suggest that  such qualities are in  abundance at the source  of the controvery.  There is a distaste here  also for those who select  portions from the Bible  and brandish them about  to justify this or that of  the writer's phobias. It is  enough to remember that  the execution of Jesus  Christ was carried out to  appease a mob chanting  in.the streets for blood.  there was nothing  sane or righteous in that  chanting. Nor is there  now. A return to capital  punishment is a step  back into barbarism. It  does none of its advocates any credit and, if  implemented, would do  society no good.  Towards a wider perspective  Caribbean trouble brewing  by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones  The recent decision by  the Federal Government  not to send observers  the upcoming electit  in El Salvador is to  praised. However, the  jack of consistent policy,  other than following the  American lead, towards'  Latin America, is a cause  for concern. It is  especially necessary to  have a clear view of the  future for Central  America and the Caribbean. Are the struggles  in Nicaragua, Guatemala  and El Salvador to be  viewed merely as a battle  between 'democracy and  communism'? Are there  not humane and realistic  demands being made by  the peasanty for a better  life that deserve the  whole-hearted support  of the Canadian Government? Is our analysis of  the situation to be that of  Thomas O. Enders,  assistant secretary of  state for inter-American  affairs in the Reagan  government, when he  told congress on  February 1st that "the  decisive battle for Central America is under  way in El Salvador".  While it is very difficult to generalize about  Latin America as a  whole, the term refers to  twenty states in the  western hemisphere,  there are some common  historical, political and  economic matters that  produce a commonality.  This common experience  is especially true of Central America. Historically this area was originally  colonized by Spain and,  despite minor incursions  by the English, French,  Dutch and Danes, it remains primarily culturally Hispanic.  The political problems  in common concern the  stability of governments,  the orderly transfer of  power, and the translation into practice of  democratic principles.  The long wars for independence, the high  profile given to the  military, the economic  dependence upon the  larger external markets  and the tradition of  political violence, have  ail led to these countries  being dominated by a  succession of juntas or  being ruled by caudillos  or strong men. rlauo'  . I Economically and  socially there are the; problems of securing1 growth  and economic diversity.  Most of the countries of  Central America are still  critically dependent  upon the production and  export of too few commodities. Also the companies producing these  goods are usually foreign  owned or multinationals.  The social divisions in  Central America are based on class and race. The  ruling groups, often in  alliance with foreign  companies, lead a rich  western lifestyle and see  themselves as the inheritors of the Spanish  Imperial Tradition.  On the other hand, the  majority of the population is of Indian descent.  All the states face the  acute difficulties in  transforming traditional  societies into modern  ones. However, not all  the ruling classes are yet  convinced that this is  either necessary or  desirable.  The role of education  in this process is crucial;  it was recognized in  Cuba after 1959 and is in  El Salvador today. This  in part accounts for the  numbers of teachers killed by the military hit  squads. Peasants who  can read can read  dangerous ideas.  With all these problems come two others.  Firstly, the population  growth, Latin America  as a whole leads the  world with an annual  rate of increase of  around 3%.  Secondly, there is the  fact that Central  America is within the  sphere of influence of  the United States. Since  the final retreat of  Spanish influence in the  late nineteenth century,  the US has become the  dominant power in the  hemisphere. This has led  to policies ranging from  President Theodore  Roosevelt's 'Big stick'  policies to the more subtle policies of the Kennedy administration's  'Alliance for Progress' in  1961.  During the era of the  'Big stick', 1906 - 1934,  the United States intervened in the following  countries, 'Cuba 1906  -1909, Mexico 1914,  Dominican" Republic  1916 - 1924, Haiti 1915  -1934, Nicaragua 1911  ���1932 and finally the setting up of the Panamanian State and the leasing of the Canal Zone.  These interventions were  primarily of a military  nature and occurred to  protect American  economic interests, to  put down civil strife and  to support conservative  rulers who were faced  with insurrection.  It is true to say that  these interventions were  not in the best interest of  the people living in the  area. They were a result  of the American policy  of maintaining a firm  grip on events in the  area. The traditions of  intervention by large  powers in the affairs of  satellite countries is a  long one. Whether the  intervention is direct, as  in Cambodia, or indirect  as in Poland, the best interests of the native people are second to the geopolitical, economic or  ideological plan of the  powerful nation.  Next week the US.  policy in the area since  World War Two will be  analysed; and the recent  changes in policy that the  Republican administration has made will be  looked at. It should  make sobering reading to  Canadians. A small nation cheek to jowl with a  mammoth one.  The reaction of the  media to Premier Bennett's 18 minute speech  last Thursday has been  about as predictable as  the speech itself. The  message has been almost  universally condemned  as being tedious, empty  and uninspired. The only  surprise contained in Mr.  Bennett's TV non-  spectacular is the fact  that people expected  more. The truth of the  matter is that the  Premier himself is  tedious, empty and  uninspired and that  anyone should expect  more from him is truly  wondrous.  For all of its  thoroughly dry contents,  however, Premier Bennett did recognize a fundamental truth in the  current economic  lassitude affecting the  province, the country,  and the western world in  general. In imposing a  10% wage increase  guideline on the public  sector, the Premier was  in effect establishing a  policy which has been  forced on the private sector by stark economic  reality. Thai is, over Ihe  past five years, both  public and private  organizations have  become slack, over confident and top heavy.  In the private sector,  the current recession has  forced businesses to cut  programs, lay off  workers, trim redundant  management, axe entire  departments and  generally reorganize for  more effective operation.  In essentially healthy  businesses, this trimming  of the fat has been a  good thing. The need to  cut back and look at pro-  ductivity can be  beneficial both in terms  of economic efficiency  and organizational  morale. The boss who  spent last February in  Barbados is more likely  to be behind his desk going over the books this  year. The junior executive who was taking  three hour lunches and  slipping out of the office  early on Fridays is now  putting in his 40-60  hours a week trying to  make the business go.  Those private  businesses that were living off the fat during the  good years are going  broke. They are suffering, from cash-flow problems, and their ability  to   respond   to   poor  market conditions has  been eroded. Many of  these businesses will  simply not survive.'  These businesses are  often characterized by  the kind of mentality  which says during the1  good times that the1  government should mind'  its own business, but as  soon as things get bad  they are begging the'  government for help1  such as tax incentives;'  import quotas and laws  to protect their business  from "unfair" competition.  In the public sector,  however, as Premier  Bennet apparently  recognized, consciously  or unconsciously, things,  are different. There are  no profit and loss  statements, or any other  useful and dependable  indicators of efficiency  and productivity. In  school systems, social  services, hospitals,  government agencies and  even crown corporations, there are few, if  any, "bottom line"  criteria to tell the  organization when it's  time to expand or contract. So, Mr. Bennett  has imposed a pseudo-  criterion on the public  sector. He has said,  essentially, to managers  of public organizations,  that they cannot spend  more than 10% more on  wages and salaries next  year than they did this  year. That he did not impose this criterion on all  government spending is  to his everlasting  discredit, but hopefully  those who run public  agencies will understand  him to mean that, like  the private sector, the  public sector has a great  deal of fat to trim.  The responsibility for  economizing in government should not |Jt  -borne solely by govertf  ment workers. When tile  time comes that we caa  see the expense accounts  of government bureaucrats limited to a 10% increase, or evidence is  shown that staff cuts in  the upper echelons of  government departments  are equal to those at the  bottom of the hierarchy,  then maybe we'll be getting somewhere. Then,  as unimaginative and  uninspired as the  Premier's feeble efforts  appear, at least some  fairness and equity will  accompany the need to  trim government spending.  To An Athlete  Dying Young  The time you won your town the race  We chaired you through the market-place:  Man and boy stood cheering by,  And home we brought you shoulder-high.  To-day, the road all runners come.  Shoulder-high we bring you home,  And set you at your threshold down,  Townsman of a stiller town.  Smart lad, to slip betimes away  From fields where glory does not stay  And early though the laurel grows  It withers quicker than the rose.  Eyes the shady night has shut  Cannot see the record cut.  And silence sounds no worse than cheers  After earth has stopped the ears:  Now you will not swell the rout  Of lads that wore their honours out,  Runners whom renown outran  And the name died before the man.  So set, before Its echoes fade,  The fleet foot on the sill of shade,  And hold to the low lintel up  The still-defended challenge-cup.  And round that early-laurelled head  Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead,  And find unwlthered on Its curls  The garland briefer than a girl's.  ��� A.E. Housman Letters to the Editor  Taxpayers being hustled?  Coast News, February 22,1982  Editor:  As my address indicates I am temporarily  away from Gibsons, my  home for 18 years.  Such is my employment.  The subject 1 wish to  tender for thought is the  proposed Gibsons marina.  The Marina Referendum of November 1979  stated categorically that  tjiere would be no  marina without both  Federal and Provincial  grants. There is one hell  of a difference, as we all  know, between a grant  and a loan, especially at  tpday's interest rales.  Also on the referendum  blurb was the stated Tact  that the cost to the  Village of Gibsons would  be only $140,000.  To start the marina, as  of to date, Gibsons immediately has to come up  with $250,000, this sum  represents the down payment on one half share  of  the  dredging.   Plus  another $160,000 for the  purchase of a strategic  lot.  When the breakwater  is built and the dredging  completed we have a  breakwater and dredged  bay but no visible  marina. This is the moment when we really  start to pay. Floats,  ramps, parking and now  a 3000 sq. ft. building.  We are looking at an  outlay of 2 -3 million  dollars for our small  village.  At present there is  marina berthage going  begging in the Vancouver area. Our council  in very uncertain times is  considering a venture  which, in good times, is  hardly more than a break  even proposition. This  "self-liquidation" claim  is absolute gobbledy-  goop.  The obvious push  behind the marina is the  Chamber of Commerce  i.e. the real estate entrepreneurs  and  other  business interests. I am  compelled to think that  this small group can be  the only beneficiaries of  such a proposal.  If and only if you have  a problem berthing a  large boat at our present  facilities, or you feel that  for this horrendous debt  burden your quality of  life will improve, support the marina. Contact  Mayor Goddard or  Alderman Edney and  give them your support.  If you don't fall into this  category, which most of  us don't, please contact  one of the other  aldermen and express  some curiousity; request  some straight financial  answers.  Because dear sir or  madam taxpayer, we are  being hustled.  Yours  F. Braithwaite  Box 109  Ruzomberok  Czechoslovakia 03400  Killing is not the solution  Editor:  The lively response  given on the issue of  capital punishment, as  reported in "The Press",  contrasts sharply with  Ihe almost universally ignored appeal for support  of world peace.  1 The wrathful letters in  favour of flogging and  capital punishment for  supposedly habitual  criminals reveal a  Vengeful attitude toward  the individual overwhelmed by the collective power of society and  therefore a safe opponent on whom to vent  one's frustrations. The  writers, however, conveniently ignore the  heinous crimes commit  ted by such forces as The  State itself or its agencies  such as the C.I.A.,  F.B.I, and Canadian  equivalents, and even  abuses perpetrated by  local authorities.  There is tio public demand for capital punishment for those following  a policy of genocide  against the San  Salvadorean people, for  example. Their ardour  melts at the thought of  advocating a law against  war which is itself the  greatest crime of all.  After all, taking on  such powerful opponents  is too dangerous an  undertaking, .it it not?  Therefore, these crimes  do   not   exist.   But   I  w  bluoilt    iii'jiii    nnspiTla    rrricj  Dr. E.

Blind support of such  regressive legislation  reveals an appalling ignorance in our society.  Even the simple task of  survival requires a certain degree of brutality  against our fellow man.  As I believe that we,  collectively, are a product of the social environment, I see these  societies as being giant  plants producing criminals on a conveyor belt.  To kill the end product  solves nothing but  rewards our killer instincts.  Crime and punishment  have been with us since  ���time immemorial r proof  enough .that, legislated  murder does not fill the  bill.  Sincerely,  Joseph Sparacino  R.R. 4, Reed Rd.  Gibsons, B.C.

This is the problem  with our country. You  always have the Bleeding.  Hearts Society screaming  for the rights of Ihe  murderers, rapists and  convicts.  Do they care about the  victims who were no  doubt screaming and  pleading for their lives?  The terror they must  have gone through! lt  must be very disheartening for the police to work  their guts out trying to  catch these murderers  and what happens? They  only get four to 25 years  and then they are out on  parole earlier for "Good  Behaviour". What a  'laughI  Most of the B.H.S.  call themselves Christians! Evidently they  leave out Chapter 35  verse 30 in Numbers.  If they want to be so  protective over these  killers, they should start  paying ' for their keep.  Why should the taxpayers be responsible for  their keep when the majority of Canadians want  Capital Punishment  brought back.  What have these  killers and rapists got to  lose, the way things are  now? Life is very cheap  now.  I agree with the person  lhal said "The B.H.S.  are losing so much blood  through their 'bleeding  hearts, i it's i taking it! all  away frotri their  brains!".  We need Capital Punishment back desperately!  Sincerely,  Vi Price  R.R. 4, Gower Point Rd.  Gibsons, B.C.  Help for  small  business  Editor:  Small business is in  trouble: Interest rates,  inventory costs, red tape  requirements, the shutdown of key sectors of  the provincial economy,  and a deepening recession - all these create  problems for small  business.  Small business needs  help. It's badly under-  represented and  misunderstood in  government. Small  business needs to be  heard.  I have the honour of  being Chairman of the  Opposition Standing  Committee on Small  Business. I write to advise your readers that we  will be meeting with  small business owners  and managers during  March.  We Will travel to  various and vital  economic regions and  will - private and in  public - listen to the concerns, the ideas, the problems and the plans of  small business. We are  now planning our  schedule of hearings  across British Columbia.  We would like to hear  from you directly.

This is in addtion  lo the "mini-thrift"  store which is open every  Wednesday afternoon.  Ann Cook, convenor of  Ihe sale, says donors may  leave rummage outside  the hall. She comes by  twice a day and can put it  inside.  Book Sale:  This Wednesday,  February 24th, a tea and  bake sale at Egmont  School will start at 2  p.m.  On February 11th,  students teamed up with  local ladies for a successful Valentine party.  Under teacher Ron  Fearn, they made hot  popcorn and valentine  cookies which they served to 23 ladies, sampling  the ladies' goodies in  return.  There were plenty nf  winners. Pally  Wallbaum won' a valentine cake beautifully  decorated by Dorothy  Silvey. Vi Berntzen's  homemade candy went  to Betty Silvey.

Pfcuilii  Roberts Creek  Community Association  in long meeting  by Jeanie Norton  886-9609  The Community Association meeting last  Wednesday lasted longer  than expected. As  Regional Director Harry  Almond's alternate,  Chairman Dennis  Davison explained the  concept of lot size  averaging, to the edification of some and the  mystification of others.  ��� The subject has been  the source of much controversy recently, with  several Roberts Creek  residents speaking out  against the Regional  Board's proposal to do  away with it. The motion  will go to the Planning  Committee and then to  the Regional Board for  the third reading.  _ Cottage ' industry and  j pining were also discuss'  ���, ed as there nave been  ! several instances of alleged by-law violations  locally, most notably Joe  Belanger's metal shop on  Park Road.  Margaret Arbuckle  will again serve as the  nominating committee  for the Association's  general elections to be  held March 17th. Nearly  all the positions will be  open, including one  trustee, hall manager,  secretary, treasurer, vice-  chairman, and possibly  chairman. If you have  any nominations for the  new executive please call  885-3485.  ��o��*s%  And work has started  on the installation of the  new furnaces for the  Community Hall. No  more cold feet at the  Association meetings!  Church Services:  There has been an attempt to clear up the  confusion about the  schedule of services at  St. Aidan's Anglican  Church. Services will be  held there every Sunday  morning at 11:30 a.m.  except the first Sunday  of the month when there  will be a combined service at St.  Bartholomew's in Gibsons at 10 a.m.  Should there be a fifth  Sunday in a month, there  will be a combined service with the Gibsons  congregation coming to  Roberts Creek at 11:30  a.m. (Editor's Note: The  Lord moves in  mysterious ways.)  New Horizons Moved:  ��� The "New Horizons  group has now moved to  the Roberts Creek  Legion. They will meet  there Mondays at 1:30  p.m. until further notice.  Valentine's at Legion:  A good-sized crowd  turned out at the Legion  for the Valentine's dance  with music by "Four  Plus One". Door prizes  were won by Herb  Richler, who received  the bottom half of the  "Dutch" door from the  kitchen, and by Bob  Pare from North Vancouver who gave the  heart-shaped box of  chocolates to his wife of  25 years. Who says the  romance goes out of a  marriage!  Crib, Bridge, Pool:  Doug Cawthra won  first prize at crib last  Thursday and shy sen  sitive Alex Ritchie took  second.  Marion Proulx and  Marie Leask were the  bridge winners and Ron  McSavaney and Elsie  DesLauriers won the  consolation prize.  The bridge players  were complaining about  how rowdy the crib  players get so they've  been given a quiet room  to themselves.  Downstairs they were  playing something called  "pea pool".  So there's crib, bridge,  and pool happening  every Thursday night at  the Roberts Creek  Legion at 8 p.m. You  don't have to be a  Legion member to play  but you do have to be on  time.  Transition House Open:  A (pur of t.he Transition House for battered  women at their open  house last Tuesday proved interesting. It's fully  set up now and has provided refuge to several  women and their families  already. It's good to  know that there's a service like this available.  If you know of an  abused woman who  needs help, call  885-2944. If there's no  answer call 885-5015 and  ask for pager 085.  Building Needs Siding:  The joint facility is  really beginning to take  shape. It's towering  behind the School. Concrete block isn't the most  attractive material but  unfortunately the cedar  siding in the design had  to be eliminated to cut  expenses. Hopefully that  can be added later as the  aesthetics of the building  do seem important to a  lot of people.  Twenty-nine members  of the Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary met on  Wednesday, February  3rd, 1982, at the Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit in  Lower Gibsons. President Joan Rigby took the  chair.  Minutes from the  January meeting were  read by Secretary Pearl  Dove, and Treasurer  Violet Harris gave her  monthly report, followed by accounts of the  numbers of volunteer  hours worked by  members in the Thrift  and Gift Shops, Extended Care Unit and  Physiotherapy department.  An all-member's get-  together will take place  on February 24th, 1982,  at St. Hilda's, Sechell,  from 11 a.m. This will be  a 'brown bag lunch' with  tea and coffee provided,  lt would be an excellent  idea if all members  wishing to attend would  really 'get-together' and  share transportation, ensuring that each car has  its full complement of  passengers.  It has been decided  that we will hold a  garage sale on April 3rd,  1982, as our spring fund-  fund-raising project and,  as this is the time of year  for us to make a start on  spring cleaning, perhaps  we should start looking  for   anything   that   we  don't really need, but  can't bear to consign to  the garbage, put it in  good working order, or,  in the case of clothing,  dry-clean or wash and  earmark it for the sale, lt  would be appreciated if  articles were as presentable as possible.  The next meeting of  the Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary will be held on  Wednesday, March 3rd,  1982, 1:30 p.m., at the  Coast Garibaldi Health  Unit.

Betty Wilson, 19, of  Gower Point Road in  Gibsons, would like to  go to Africa this summer. She doesn't want to  go there simply to be  frivolous, although she  likes the idea of travelling very much. She  wants to take part in the  Teen Mission program  and work 5'/i days a  week from 6 a.m. to 10  p.m. helping to construct  a 25 by 12 foot concrete  and block dormitory at a  Bible Fellowship Camp  at Oribi Gorge.  Betty is Roman  Catholic and other teens  participating are from  other denominations.  She will not be expected  lo teach religion to  anyone.  The hard part is raising money for the trip,  some of which will go  towards materials for the  project. Betty will need  about $3,000 to cover  her travel expenses and  the way she hopes to do  it is to ask 50 friends to  contribute $15 a month  group of 30 teens will  travel through Kenya,  visit Bethlehem,  Jerusalem and Cairo and  then fly back lo New  York and home.

DISCOUNT PRICES  ��� Furniture ��� T.V.'s & Stereos  ��� Appliance*      ��� Auto Stereos, etc.  Suggestions for substitutes  > intife  by Francis Fleming  A reader who substitutes occasionally, asked  for some suggestions, as  lo how to keep a class  busy for a day beyond  the work laid out by the  absent teacher.  The following are  things lhat can be tried  by anyone left with a  group to supervise or  with a bored convalescent.  Give every letter of the  alphabet a numerical  value: A is I, Bis2, Cis  3....Zis26. Make a word  thai totals 20 points, a  word that totals 40  points, a sentence that  totals 200 points. The  pupils learn how to put  numbers together to  match a predetermined  sum, bul it is also  brought home to them  lhal words are made up  of individual letters.  A second activity involves maps. Distribute  blank maps of the world,  and have pupils indicate  by pointing fingers such  piaces as Hawaii, Hong  Kong, California, Suez  Canal, Israel. They can  be grouped, and give a  concensus report. You  may find that their  geography facts are  somewhat distorted,  upon which you give a  lesson on The World.  The same can be done  with a map of Canada,  on the board, or using  blank outline maps. For  younger children, the  Sunshine Coast could be  the subject.  For older children,  sophisticated riddles pass  a lot of time, and create  interesting discussions.  Some examples:  1. Two teachers played  chess. They played five  games, and each teacher  won three. How do you  explain this?  2. If you had only one  match, and you entered a  room, lo starta ke  , lamp, aft oll^ieaie  a .w^d-'btiAJMV  which would you  first, and why?  3. You have a dime in an  empty wine bottle. The  botlle is corked. Your  task is to take the dime  oul of the bottle without  taking the cork out. You  must not damage the  botlle in any way. How  would you do lhal?  4. A boy boasted: In my  bedroom, the nearest  lamp lhal I usually keep  turned on is 12 feet away  from my bed. Alone in  the room, without using  wires, strings, or any  electronic aid or contraption, 1 can turn out the  light on that lamp and  get into bed before the  room is dark. He can.  But how?  Answers are: (I) They  were not playing each  other. (2) The match. (3)  Push in the cork and  shake out the dime. (4)  He does il in Ihe  daytime.  if those answers don'l  l urn your class into embryo lawyers, nothing  will, They will begin to  realize ihe trickiness ol  the English language,  and how we assume  deiails   which   arc   cr-  NOTE Only 6 Days Left  Atttopl.tn r.itps have gone up 20";, lot l')82.

Gibsons  "Insurance is our Onfv Business  roneous. Challenge them  to make up similar riddles.  Here is another exercise with a creative  aspect. Have each child  write a paragraph of 100  words about a place  where he or she would  rather be than school.  Cross out all the verbs.  (This may mean a short  lesson on what a verb  is...) Then have Ihe  children break down the  remaining words inlo IS  or 20 lines, lo create instant poems. Here is one  child's "poem":  Vancouver bound  Exciting highway  Curving round North  Shore Mountains  Glimpses of great ships  Riding at anchor  Wailing to dock.  Tall buildings against  the morning sky  Graceful bridge  Stanley Park  Underground parking  Dentist appointment.  Copying out the  "poems" and , illustrating them is a worthwhile follow-up activity.  A fascinating study in  social dynamics is a  game known as "Seven-  Up" but which may be  called "Four-Up" or any  suitable number up.  Teacher selects four  children, who line up at  the front of the class.  The rest of the class hide  their eyes on their desks,  make a fist of their, right  hands, with the thumb  up in Hfe air. The commands are "Heads  down. Thumbs up." The  children at the front then  tippy-toe around the  class, each touching one  thumb before returning  to the front. When a  thumb is touched, the  owner tucks it into his  fist. When all the  children have returned to  the front, the command  is given. "Heads up.  Four up." The four  children whose thumbs  were tapped stand up,  and in turn try to guess  who tapped them. If the  guess is correct, the tapper sits down and the  child lapped tak'es thai  place in the front. When  everyone is ready, it's  "Heads down, thumbs  up" again. Classes never  seem to tire of this quiet  game.  Being a substitute is  not easy, but it can be a  real challenge. A little  suitcase of maps, exercises, stories you like lo  read, craftwork of a simple variety, all somewhat  different from regular  materials will interest  any class. You may never  have to use it, but it will  give you confidence.  Mosl teachers leave  beautiful "day books",  seating plans, complete  instructions. However,  when this could not be  done, the substitute is  thrust on her own  devices. It is well to be  prepared.  Curriculum fable  "One time the animals  had a school. The curriculum consisted of running, climbing, flying  and swimming, and all  the animals took all of  the subjects.  "The Duck was good  in swimming, better, in  fact, than his instructor,  and he made passing  grades ip flying, but, he  was practically, hop��|fjss  in running. Because^he  was low in this subject,  he was made to stay after  school and drop his  swimming class in order  to practice his running.  He kept this up until he  was only average in  swimming. But average  is acceptable, so nobody  worried about ihis except  the duck. i  "The Eagle was considered a problem pupil  and was disciplined  severely. He beat all the  others to the top of the  tree in the climbing class,  but he used his own way  of getting there.  "The Rabbit started  out at the top of the class  in running, but he had a  nervous breakdown and  had to drop out of  school on account of so  much make-up work in  swimmings  "The Squirrel led the  climbing class, but his  flying,teacher, made him  Start his flying; lessons  from the ground instead  of.tbe.top oJi,,)he tree  down, and he developed  Charley horses from  over-exertion at the takeoff and began getting Cs  in climbing, Ds in running.  "The practical Prairie  Dogs apprenticed their  offspring to a Badger  when the school  authorities refused to  add digging to the curriculum.  "At the end of the  year, an abnormal Eel  that could swim well,  run, climb, and fly a little was made valedictorian."

VON 3A0 Secretary-Treasurer  Telephone: 885-2261  ntaea Coast News, February 22,1982  n the thick ot it  Ramblings of a Rover  by DeeCee  I must confess that i  ad ambivalent feelings  out   leaving   Bourne-  louth when 1 learned  at 1 had been posted  rvcrseas.   On   the  one  nd I was glad to get  tway  from  Fll./Ll.  B.  ind his minions, but I  ���ad, after almost a year,  iecome attached to the  place and had acquired a  pore or less steady girl-  iend by the name ql  rolhy. Also I really  joyed the few weeks I  id on the ration truck,  e work was far from  duous as the swampers  id all the heavy lifting.  1 had to do was lo  jeck and see that the ra-  ri��ns were left off at the  designated hotel where,  \rl many cases, when the  military had taken over  they had let the "pub"  remain in the hands of  |he original licensee, so  'hat it was operated in-  lependently   from   Ihe  ess-halls   and   rooms  iat were now occupied  y either the army or air  orce.  During   the   eleven  lonths of my  stay  I  haredaroom with "Old  ohn"   Keller   at   the  etropole   Hotel.   We  ere up on the second  loor and from time lo  jime,  although   it   was  itrictly  against   regula-  ions, we sneaked  our  jrl friends up there after  he bar had closed and,  iroviding we got them lo  ell out of there before  laylight when the Orderly   Officer   made   his  rounds, no-one was any  the  wiser.   Incidentally  :"01d John's" name had  [been up on D.R.O.s too  jjjo he was to accompany  ��jpe and I was more than  [pleased to have him. He  was a very capable man;  ad a wife and four kids  ack  in  Toronto,   but  at had not slowed him  'own as he was an in-  terate skirt-chaser and  good  man  to Jiave  iround  should  a  r-all occur.  As   far   as   I   can  semember it took us a  hole   day   running  around the town getting  our clearances from the  various departments,  before reporting back to  the Headquarters'  building to pick up our  final instructions and  our train tickels to London first and then on to  Liverpool. 1 seem to  recall that it was a Thursday when we were so  engaged and it would be  either Friday or Saturday  before we arrived at our  destination Birkenhead,  to board the S.S.  Samaria which was to  take us to North Africa.  It had been a Cunard  passenger ship lhat had  been converted over lo a  troop carrier and once  afcain, as had been the  case of the Empress of  Japan, there were very  few airmen 'board compared with the army.  Regrettably there was no  canteen, at least so far as  the enlisted ranks were  concerned, so no beer  was available and,  because of' the severe  rationing in Britain,  neither John nor I had  managed to wangle a  bottle of hard stuff to  lighten our journey.  Actually, due to the  "hush hush" policies of  war we still had no idea  in which direction we  were heading, although  it was whispered aboard  that, we were bound for  Algeria, and that  assumption finally proved correct. For the first  time we were armed so  we were definitely going  into a war zone. Each of  us had been issued with a  crowded not only withi  airmen but with civilian i|  enjoying their Sunday  pints. We were never to  learn the exact number  of casualties, but on my  return from Africa I saw  a picture that had been  taken after the raid.  There was hardly a brick  left standing of what had;;  formerly been a fine old  hotel, lt was now a complete ruin.  Without going into a  lot of retrospect, I find if  ironic that a man I  detested, Flt./Lt. B.,  had undoubtedly saved  my life by posting me  elsewhere when the Germans had struck so  savagely and I was beginning to wonder just how  long my luck would hold  out. I hadn't too long to  wait.  Under the cover of  darkness, the S.S.  Samaria slipped out of  the Mersey on the Monday night and once again  in the convoy not only  were there several  destroyers accompanying us but an aircraft carrier. I imagine there were  about 40 ships all told.  The voyage south was  uneventful until we had  crossed the Bay of Biscay  and were somewhere off  the coast of Portugal  heading for the Straits of  Gibraltar, lt was a well  documented fact that the  Germans had bases in  Spain so we were not too  surprised when one morning two reconnaissance  planes, flying so high in  the sky that they were  just  specks,   appeared.

'"*  Although many communities in B.C. have  recycling centres, the  Sunshine Coast remains  without one. There are  some committed re-  cyclers who take their  tins, glass, and paper to  depots in North and  West Vancouver but for  the rest, the Sechelt  dump is the only alternative. What do we do  when the only dump  open weekly on the  Coast closes? Will wise,  far-sighted decisions be  made under the pressures  of finding another dump  site? Or should we begin  now to form alternative  plans while there is still  time to thoroughly examine all the choices.  Recycling certainly  does not make money  and probably does not  save money in the short  term. While some recycling plants have started,  including one for used  oil, until more at source  collection is done recycling will not become a  large industry.

Recycleable  material is not garbage,  it is a secondary  resource. A recycling  depot can be clean and  organized to encourage  proper use. At source  separation and collection  must be convenient for  the customers. With the  proper approach people  will find it easier to  change their habits. It is  a question of alternatives  - would you want a  recycling depot in your  community or would you  rather have a garbage  dump?

THE NEWSPAPER THAT THINKS  .V ���MM  Coast News, February 22,1982  The Counting House  Parti  Handcuffed to a  small, ill-smelling wino,  I stumble from the Vancouver City Jail, through  a brief splash of sunlight  and inlo the waiting bun-  wagon to join six other  men, similarly linked.  Two Mounties climb in  the front and we roar off  through the warm, summer morning. A lot of  people will be heading  for the beaches today.  Wc are bound for the  Oakalla Prison Farm.  "What a sonafabitch  this is!" growls a hulking, dark-haired man,  directly across from me.  "I only got out six months ago and now I get  railroaded on a goddamn  receiving beef. Someone  stashed   a   lot   of  hot  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  and I end up taking the  bloody fall. Wouldn't  believe me on account of  my record, the bastards!  Talk about your bum  raps!"  "How much did they  hit you with?" asks so  meone.  "A stinking year, for  Christ's sake! Some  justice!" He fires a  cigarette and lapses into  angry silence.  I fix my eyes on the  steel wall and imagine  the suburbs flashing by  beyond. It is my first trip  to a Provincial prison. I  feel light-headed; unreal.

"Okay,  everybody out" orders  one of the horsemen.  We disembark awkwardly like four sets  of reluctant Siamese  twins and are escorted  into the admissions  building. It could be the  office of some busy firm  except lhat the typists are  khaki-uniformed guards.  Our cuffs are removed  and we are herded into a  small, unlocked cell to sit  and wait.  One by one, we are  called up to the booking  desk. My turn comes. A  youngish guard with a  freckled, ingenuous face,  confiscates my money  and cigarettes. (Prisoners are not permitted  tailormades.) He sells me  a carton of tobacco and  some papers.  The formalities conclude and we are moved  to a much larger holding-  tank, about six-feel by  eighteen, with benches  around the walls. The  tank is already half full  wilh more reluctant  customers from an  earlier shipment. Our  motley group packs il to  capacity.  1 am sitting next to a  couple of guys who are  wearing uniforms of  some sort. They seem  eager to talk. Turns out  they are in from the  Haney Borstal Unit for  medicals. One of them is  an aspiring actor. He has  been working wilh director Anthony Holland on  the inmate production of  Fortune and Men's Eyes  and plans to pursue a  career in theatre when he  gets out. I wish him luck.  "Hey,   scoff   time"  says somebody and we  receive our First Oakalla"  meal. It consists of sardines,   beets,   potatoes'  and bread with plums Cor.  dessert.  Not exactly a  gourmet's   dream,   but  filling. The food is served on  mess-trays with  lukewarm coffee in tin  mugs. Knives and forks  are conspicuous by Iheir  absence. Only spoons are  allowed.  The two kids from  Haney are taken out. 1  sit toying with the insipid  meal. Someone addresses me by name. It  doesn't sound like a  guard. 1 look up, surprised.  A tall, solidly-built  man with badger-grey  hair and two week's  growth of equally silver  whiskers is looking at me  with a quizzical smile. I  had noticed something  vaguely familiar about  him earlier. Now I look  closer and twelve years  drop away. It was the  beard that had me fooled. I fumble for his  name. "Jake? Jake  Horatski?"  He nods a wry affirmative.  Big Jake of the  shakecutting days! I'd  never expected to see him  again, especially under  these circumstances. I  had once worked for him  and it occurs to me that  we had not exactly  parted on the rosiest of  terms.  to be continued  -pixtfoch  OFFICE SUPPLIES  ��� Photo Copiers ��� Typewriter.  a Cash Uaatatara * Calculator.  a Qfflcc Supplies a School Supplies  Fiirniriire eft Stationery  Sechelt 885-3735  ^aRe*r H   Welcome tn\  EUPME  CABARET  Tues. ��� Sat., Feb. 23rd - 27th  Rock and Roll to the Top 40's Sounds of  Tight Squeez  ELPHIE'S HOURS  Tues & Wed: 7pm - 1arr      Fri & Sat: 7pm -  Thursday: 7pm ��� 1:30 am     CLOSED SUN &  Next to the Omega Restaurant,.

Feb. 26th & 27th  Merffbers &  Guests Welcome I  a  Life out there?  ii      by Boh Hunter  .   The    mosl    mind-  boggling   thought   I've  jrun into in ages is the  Suggestion   by   some  scientists   lhal   no   intelligent lil'c exists except  .Aiii earth.  . After 20 years of scanning the heavens  with  radio   telescopes   and  eavesdropping   through  all sorts of sophisticated  .electronic   gadgelry,  astronomers have grown  , disheartened.  ,   Oil, there were a few  exciting moments when  I it seemed l hey had pickled  up weird,  unnatur-  l :il  beeps  from  various  solar  systems  scattered  .through the galaxy.  I remember lhe Ipsilon  Bootis story, when odd  impulses were picked up  emanating from that  particular star. A super-  .civilization signalling  I Irom distant space?  I, Unfortunately, some-  jjbody came up with a  .logical explanation lor  "ihe "signals" from Ipsilon Bootis. Like an  [(earlier ^generation's  /'Martian canal", the  - super-civilization faded  ,,from view..  Drat, said I, along  wilh millions or other  True Believers In Life  On Other Planets. I  mean, the entire post-  , war generation was raised on the notion of life  "oul there in space".  II was jusi after the  war - remember? - when  the Flying Saucer  phenomenon got its  start, south of the  border, when a U.S.  pilot reported UFOs near  Mount Hood.  By that lime, there was  already a steady flow of  sci-fi flicks oul of  Hollywood. Some of lite  best science-fiction  writers in history had  delivered themselves of  iheir classics - Asimov's  Foundation trilogy,  Clarke's Childhood's  End, Simak's Cily, and  Ray Bradbury's Martian  Chronicles.  I I mean, from the time  I was 12 years old, I  knew there was Life Oul  There.  Oil, in school, the  teachers were conservative in the extreme  about this burning issue,  refusing io admit defeat  even when challenged  with the inevitable question, "How do you  know there isn'l?"  But I knew.  And in my entire adult  life, I doubt that I've run  into more than a handful  of people who would  seriously argue lhal intelligent life only existed  on earth.  Of course, none of us  who believe in Life Out  There can actually say  that we've met any of  our cosmic brethren yet.  If we did, you'd laugh. I  know you would.  There were a lew en  thusiasts ai the dawn of  the Flying Saucer era,  like that chap Adamskt_  who claimed Ip have  been taken for a ride inlo  space. They attracted a  small, intense following  for a while, bul I think  it's petered oul.  Certainly, 1 don't  claim to have met any  weird creatures from  space, bul then of course  they'd hypnotize me so  I'd think ihey were  human beings. That be-.  ing ihe case, I can't say  for sure lhat I haven't  met any either.  Let me tell you a  secret, though.  I've grown so used to  the idea of alien life on  alien worlds lhat ihe suggestion there might not  be any aliens after all is  quite, ah, alien.  An empty Milky Way  -devoid of the incredible  varieties of life-forms  that I've come to assume  oul there, doing Iheir  tiling in whatever bizarre  way they do it?  What an awful  thought!  It sure knocks'a hole  in all those lovely fantasies of missionaries arriving from Sirius, taking our guns away and  leaching us io live in  peace and harmony,  doesn'l il?  Nope. Sorry. I can't  buy t lie idea, even for a  minute, that we're ihe  only "inlclligcni" life,  even on earlh, never  mind the universe.  How lo account for  i he silence oul l here in  space, then?  It's simple. They're  hiding.  I mean, wouldn't you?  Humans!

Well, at least it's near new, and purchased at a considerable saving. This is the  last piece of refrigeration equipment to be replaced in the past five years. I don't  suppose the public can begin to guess the tremendous costs involved.  We used to consider depreciation (the cost of replacement) at an annual rate  of 10%. Today it is more like once in 7 to 8 years, either by way of obsolescence  through advanced technology, or because the equipment won't last any longer  without substantial maintenance costs.  All of which will only concern the sympathetic customer, or the knowledgeable  person who will appreciate the high cost of doing business in today's world and  realize the 'take' is not all gravy. But should it concern all of us?  In that line of thought, I am not ashamed to say that last year we took a reduction of approximately 5% in our gross profit and in spite of an increase in sales,  had a break-even operation. We hope to at least do as well in 1982, notwithstanding the fact that we must compete, and keep up our equipment. That's a 'no-  growth' forecast!  The consuming public, residents of this area, should be aware of the concerns  of many local business people.  Let's hope that in 1982, we as citizens, though perhaps not going ahead as fast  as our inclinations dictate, may at least not go backwards too much. For all of us,  it's belt-tightening time, - living within our means, and what's wrong with the ancient idea that a part of all of that which we earn should be ours to keep! This will  reduce inflationary pressure, may slow business growth, but will once again  make a dollar worth a dollar.

They  are the rewards for, so  many hours of training.  Improving their times  and having fun is the  main goal. A ribbon for  placing 1st - 6th, is an extra bonus for their improvement, many of the  swimmers compete  against 15-25 children  of their own ages in their  levels.  February is an exciting  month   offering   three  meets for our swimmers.

The afficionados ol  computers liken them to  the pencil, a basic  necessity for every  school child. When it  becomes standard equip-  ment, lei's hope parents  have lo provide the Apples as well as the pencils, nol ihe taxpayer,  though il is nol the cosl  which concerns me here.  I'd rale computers  wilh Sesame Slreel,  television, and places  like Ihe Ontario Science  Centre, where you have  all those fabulous  models and experiments  sel up for you and all  you have to do is push a  button lo set Ihe thing in  motion, as things which  young children can do  without except on a  selective basis.  I'm not saying these  things are wrong, or thai  ihey should nol be used  as educational tools. But  rather, lhal we do nol  always use them wisely,  particularly television  which may well teach  things we hadn'l  bargained for. They are  shortcuts and illusions of  life rather than ihe real  thing. They may, and of  course do, spark a  child's interest, bul Ihe  effort is wasted if lhal in-  leresl isn't fostered and  developed leading lo a  greater awareness and  understanding of ihe real  world.  The real joy and learning experience of those  scientific models for example, is in Ihe making  of ihem; for the child  who runs around  pushing bullons, they're  little more than a  plaything of momentary  interest, lacking the excitement and thrill of  what, in current jargon,  is called "hands on".  That is being allowed lo  gel your hands dirly and  lo do your own experimentation wilh its  rewarding thrill of  discovery.  There is no way we're  going to put television  back in Pandora's Box,  but we could do a lot to  balance ils harmful effects by limiting its access lo children, and of  equal importance, watching it wilh ihem so lhat  the ways in which problems are solved (usually  violently) can be discussed, advertising sel in a  more honest focus and  Ihe difference belween  life and ficlion can be  understood.  By ihe same token,  computers are here to  slay and are deslined lo  play a larger and larger  part in the lives of all of  us. They are tools which  can speed up everyday  chores, solve problems in  many areas of endeavour, make and update  long range forecasts and  plans. The limit, if there  is one, is lost in Infinity.  But il is probably safe  io assume that, like  everything else, the  positive aspects of the  microchip revolulion will  need to be balanced  against ils negative effects on society and the  most important place to  look for and balance  those negative effects are  in Ihe lives of children.  It's generally agreed  thai one of the negalive  effects of ihe technological advances of the  20th century has been to  turn us into passive watchers rather than participators in life. We  spend millions of dollars  to re-educate ourselves  to the necessity of  physical fitness, rather  than just silting in front  of the TV, beer in hand,  watching the "pros". To  say nothing of (he  millions we pay the pros,  so lhal we can watch in-i  stead of playing  ourselves. It's a crazy  woitef*How nWny parents or even grandparents sing lo their  children, or tell them  slories? How many of us  sing as we go about our  work, more likely we  have a radio or TV blaring, or give Ihe child a  record player.  I found il interesting  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

Before we get carried  away wilh the excitement  of a new tool and the  vistas il may open up for  us, lei's remember the  necessity of balancing  ihe tools with many op-  poriuniiies for children  lo make things, to grow  things, io care for and  nurture things, io play  games (not jusl electronic ones), lo sing,  dance and make music,  to draw, paint and build  things, lo wrile slories,  poems, plays, lo create  theatre and lo experiment wilh ideas.  Most important of all  and for all of us, nol only children, is the expansion of our understanding and skills in human  inter-relationships,  building close-knil family uniis into supporting  communities where  children and adults alike  can grow in the security  of love and warmth in a  caring sociely.

Coast readers  show preferences  The Coasl News  reponed lasl week, in ihe  second of a six-part  series on Coasl attitudes  toward a variety of  media, lhal the survey  conducted by Admer  Services of North Vancouver revealed a strong  readership preference for  the Coasl News. The  third part of the series  will examine where the  various daily and weekly  papers are read and what  people like to read in  their newspaper.  As far as the daily  newspapers are concerned, respondents to the  Admer survey showed a  marked preference for  the Vancouver Sun over  the Province and, while  only 42% of Coast  residents subscribe to  dailies, of those who do,  67% subscribe lo the Sun  and 33% to the Province.  Vancouver Sun  subscribers lended to  prefer reading the sports  seclion and Ihe business  page, wilh 88% reading  these sections regularly.  Sixty seven per cent'of  Sun readers enjoyed the  editorial page and 71%  regularly read the  "You" pages.  Province readers  preferred Ihe "Living"  pages; with a 79%  readership; 71% read the  editorials; 64% the  business page and 43%  the sports.  As far as the weeklies  were concerned, Ihe  media survey reported  that the Coasl News was  the preferred newspaper  in both Sechell and Gibsons. In answering Ihe  question: "If only one  newspaper could be  delivered in your area,  which weekly newspaper  would you prefer?" 45%  of Sechell respondents  said the Coast News,  32% said ihe other weekly and 23% had no  preference. In Gibsons,  61% preferred Ihe Coasl  News lo 22% for Ihe  other paper, wilh 17%  having no preference.  When asked lo rate  four selected columns  from the Coasl News,  64% said ihey read "We  Remember When"  regularly; 38% read  "Pages from a Life  Log".  Next week, in the  fourth of the six-part  series on media attitudes,  the actual questions asked on the Admer survey  will be shown and the  role of radio and television discussed.

"We are planning two  maintenance shutdowns, one al Easter for  two or three weeks and  one at Labour Day for a  week to 10 days. These  are directly related to  major   improvements  which require a shutdown of the mill. One is  to integrate the new 500  ton high-density storage  tank into the mill system  and the other will be to  connect the new outfall  diffuser pipe".  Hughes said it is true  that inventory has been  piling up and that sales  have slowed down in the  early part of 1982 but it  is expected that pulp  sales will pick up again.  "It has been a long  time since we have laid  anyone off���the last  time was in 1976. There  will be a curtailment of  production for one or  two weeks in July but we  will try to time it with  employees vacation  schedules so there  shouldn't be a slow time  in the forest industry."  Hughes said Japanese  and European buyers  had put pressure on  Canadian pulp producers to drop their  prices but now that an  agreement has been  reached, sales will  resume.

Katimavik is a government  funded, non-profit organization which brings  together enthusiastic  youths between the ages  of seventeen and twenty-  one. We live together in  groups of ten, along with  our group leaders, who  combine diplomacy with  authority, while constantly reminding  themselves that patience  is a virtue.  When Jacques Hebert,  Barnett Danson and the  other Katimavik chief-  tans got together to  organize the program,  they created the Participant Manual (later renamed The Bible) and  divided the manual into  seven sections���one for  each program objective.  The seven Katimavik objectives are as follows:  work skills, billeting,  nutrition, second  language learning, socio-  cultural activities, environment and appropriate technology and  active leisure. Each participant is expected to  spend a certain amount  of time working on each  of the program objectives in some way.  The work skills objective serves to give us experience in a number of  different work situations  as well as teaching us the  various safety techniques  in each job. All work is  volunteer and must not  take jobs away from the  community. Our sponsors provide us with the  tools we need for our  work and supervisors to  organize and oversee the  jobs.  On the Sunshine  Coast, Katimavikers are  working at the elementary school, the museum  and the Kinsman Par-  ticipark in Gibsons, as  well as Cliff Gilker Park  and the Wilson Creek  Day Care Centre. Participants generally rotate  from one job to another  as much as is convenient  in order to give us a taste  of many different types  of work. Last week 1 was  working with Andre,  from Toronto, repairing  trails at Cliff Gilker  Park. The scenery is  magnificent and it's very  pleasant work, if you  wear rain gear. Coming  from Ontario, I'm used  to much more snow and  much less rain in the  winter. On my first day  at the park I showed up  in a nice, heavy winter  coat which left me soaked to the skin before  noon. But despite such  hardships the work we  do is usually quite enjoyable and the work  skills objective is well  filled here in Gibsons.  During each rotation  in Katimavik, each participant billets for a two  or three week period  with a family in the community. He or she  works, eats and lives  with the family and the  family in return receives  a small sum for food  and, we hope, a  memorable two weeks.  Many of us are keeping  in touch with our  billeting families in  Ste.-Anne and St. Pierre,  Manitoba, the sites of  our first rotation.

(112)681-9910    (collect)  by R.F. OMersfcaw  While the winter still  holds us garden fanatics  captive, it is a good time  to start planning our  garden for the coming  year. We might here consider the following questions - Why did my broccoli and cabbage bolt so  early? Why did the celery  not thrive? Why are the  carrots so short and  stubby? Let's see if we  can settle some of these  common problems and  prevent making the same  mistakes year after year.  After all, a good garden  can be rewarding in  many ways, while a poor  garden is a waste of time  and energy.  A sunny exposure is  best provided by a  southern exposure. This  is important, but if you  just haven't the right  aspect, forget about it. A  well-tended garden will  thrive on any exposure.  When selecting your  garden site consider  shade. Most plants will  not thrive in constant  shade, whereas others  will not tolerate extended  periods of direct sun.  Planting instructions on  seed packets tell us the  sunlight preferences of  various plants. Follow  them. Trim trees that are  blocking the sun. In my  experience, whether you  plant rows running east  and west, or north and  Sechelt Garden Club  The Sechelt Garden  Club began its 1982 programme at the February  3rd meeting in St.  Hilda's Church hall with  60 members present. The  club was privileged to  welcome seven new  members - Laura  Rayner, Mary Marcroft,  Georgene Macklam, Tim  and Eva Whittles, Peggy  and Frank Campbell, all  from Gibsons. We were  also glad to receive three  visitors - Audrey Jost,  Marjorie Parry and Molly Massett.  President Colin Cole  announced that our Programme Chairman, Eric  Huskins, has lined up  material for each monthly meeting through to  June. For this February  meeting Eric invited  Dominique Massets of  Bota Garden Landscapes  in Richmond and this  proved to be a splendid  choice.  Mr. Masset showed  slides and described the  beautiful Bota Garden  project he and his father  are creating. The slides  first showed a barren  plot of land in Richmond, and as ideas  "bceyw ro take shape they  "iSarproperly documented by the camera and so  to our projector.  As the project is but a  little over three years old  it was surprising to see  some 1979 pictures of  masses of daffodils,  tulips, annuals and  perennials growing  around some Masset-  made lakes, each with its  own colourful islands.  The slides drew exclamations of pleasure from  the audience.  Young Dominique  Massett was brought up  in a gardening atmosphere. He is a third  generation horticulturist,  and has a degree in  agriculture from Calpoly  in California.  Domini  que and his father learned of a garden of  rhododendrons that had  been abandoned  somewhere in Oregon,  and they made an offer  on these plants that was  accepted and now they  grace the Bota properties. This rhododendron  episode elicited from me  a feeling of "Good  thinking men, and may  all your endeavours be  successful".  The Bota gardens will  be open to the public on  March 27th at a very  nominal fee. These  gardens are located at  the junction of No. 5  Road and Steveston  Highway.  This southwest corner  of B.C. has a number of  public and commercial'  gardens that are all  worth visiting. As I stroll  through some of these  beautiful spots I fully appreciate their presence,  but then I contrast them  to my own garden that  has a look of "just happened" and I resolve to  do some serious planning  each spring. Mr. Masset  senior must have  realized how overwhelming a place like  Bota .can be, so .he put  aside some plots the size  of an ordinary back yard  and brought his magic to  the smaller area.  Dominique k showed  some slides of his  father's garden before  Bota was started, and the  excellence of this garden  must have inspired the  move to the greater expanse.  Some members  wondered how the word  Bota was chosen. That's  easy, isn't it?  At the December party  held by the club,  honorary membership  was given Louis Hanson  who has been a stalwart  supporter of this  organization for many  years.

The only time that this  should be considered is  in planting tall crops,  such as corn, climbing  beans, Jerusalem artichokes, etc. and these  should, if possible, be  planted where they do  not shade unduly other  .parts of the garden.  Many of us in this area  And that steeply sloping  land poses a problem for  successful gardening.  The best way to overcome this is to terrace the  plot. The effort involved  will prove to be worthwhile. With our rainfall, steep slopes can suffer severe erosion problems. The washing  away of soil carries away  all your fertilizer, compost, etc. Also, the terraced plot will hold  moisture better during  dry periods.  The condition of the  soil itself is the main  villain in most of our  garden problems. A soil  testing kit is a valuable  acquisition. These are  available at garden centres and will show up any  deficiencies in nitrogen,  phosphorous, potassium  and trace elements. All  of these additives can be  obtained at your garden  centre; either in general  fertilizers or individually. But many can be provided by use of compost  M 19  and manure. I will cover  this at length in a later  column. The acidity or  alkalinity of soil is one of  the most important considerations.  If the calcium or lime  content of soil is not  right, not only is plant  growth affected directly,  but also the use by plants  of other elements is affected. Lime not only  neutralizes soil acidity,  but it also helps to break  down and improve structure of clay soils, preserves nitrogen in the soil  and releases for use  phosphorous, and potassium in the soil. Do not  use lime indiscriminately  throughout the garden  without testing. Too  much lime, resulting in  over-alkalinity, can be  just as bad as too little.

For Schools Superintendent  An embarrassing contrast  by Maryanne West  Only one taxpayer had the staying power to wait  until the end of the School Board meeting when  Trustees unanimously approved the $11,983,648  budget for 1982-83, up some $2 million from last  year, most of the increase to cover increastd salaries.  The meeting began with musical entertainment by  Grade one students, the senior choir and the 55  member concert. band of Gibson's Elementary  School, and a comprehensive report on the progress  of music from Mr. Ireson, since his appointment last  September as Music teacher for the school.  Principal Bob Cotter of West Sechelt followed  with an enthusiastic report on the micro-computers  presently being used at West Sechelt and Gibsons for  classroom, learning assistance and extra-curricular  activities. He looks forward to the day when a computer is standard equipment for each child.  During the coffee break, students showed groups  of intrigued adults how the computers can help drill  practice in spelling and math, vocabulary, word  recognition, keep records of assignments, provide  feedback for teachers, and simulate real world situations where one must take the consequences of the  decisions one makes.  In contrast, a group of parents from Cedar Grove  School, for whom Mrs. Celia Fisher was spokesperson, graphically described the difficult conditions  under which the Learning Assistance teacher, aides  and children were struggling at that school due to  lack of any prescribed space for them. The brief was  supported by a slide presentation showing students  having to work in odd corners of the Nurses room,  Staff room, Library or even in the hallways.  An embarrassed Superintendent disputed the accusation that no one cares and explained that the problem had been recognized, that it had been hoped to  have a portable available, but that when several options had not worked out Cedar Grove had somehow  become lost in the day to day priorities. He promised  a cost estimate for a portable by the next meeting.  A discussion on school discipline was introduced  by Trustee Edmonds who wishes to see children encouraged to take responsibility for their actions. She  said that disciplining should be in a constructive  manner which makes sense to the child. Trustee  Hodgins reported that Bowen Island Community  School was presently coming to grips with the issues,  feeling emphasis should be placed on mutual respect,  responsibility for actions, and applied equally to  adults and children. Superintendent Denley said the  matter would be brought to the Principals and referred back to the Board at a. later date.  The Chatelech building project permit is still in.  limbo, and Trustees agreed to make continued representations to Victoria, if necessary in person, to impress upon the authorities that delays are costing the  district money.  It seems the Hon. Hugh Curtis, Minister of  Finance has put a freeze on the Treasury Board,  which then sent all matters awaiting its approval  back to the various ministries asking that they only  process those which are essential. Trustees have been  assured the Department of Education still rates the  Chatelech project as essential.  Sechelt owns  the boulevard  A letter of complaint from a Sandy Hook resident  read at the Sechelt Council meeting Wednesday night  will result in a letter being sent to the management of  the Royal Terrace in Sechelt. Apparently the annoyed resident was told by a sales representative during the past week that the boulevard in front of the  new condominium project was private property.  Mayor Bud Koch, speaking for council stated in no  uncertain terms that, "It is not private property! It  belongs to the village of Sechelt".  Road block for  Henry Hall  Sechelt developer Henry Hall's plan to develop  Porpoise Bay property adjacent to the Sechelt Marsh  for resort and boat launch purposes ran into a road  block at Wednesday's Sechelt Council meeting.  Speaking on behalf of the Sechelt Marsh Society,  Doug Roy raised opposition to Mr. Hall's application for a right-of-way across a section of the  foreshore next to the proposed Osborne Park in Porpoise Bay. "The foreshore is an essential element'of  the aquatic life of all of Porpoise Bay," Roy told  council, "and it should be declared a conservancy  area."  While the purpose of the proposed right-of-way  was not made clear, Sechelt mayor Bud Koch assured  Mr. Roy that "the council is opposed to this plan"  (of allowing the right-of-way).  The Sunshine Coast Arts Centre and the Village of  Sechelt appear to have a "conflict of interest" that  may impede the Arts Centre's proposed expansion.  Burrell Swartz, president of the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council, asked Sechelt council Wednesday to  examine "in a spirit of cooperation and  consultation" further development taking place at  the site, which is presently shared by the village  works yard and the Arts Centre.  In recent weeks, while the Arts Centre has been  finanlizing plans to expand its building, built in 1979,  Sechelt village has fenced in the works yard and is  preparing to pour foundations for a permanent  storage structure in very close proximity to the Arts  Centre.  Swartz informed council by letter that the newly-  erected fence exceeded the fifty foot boundary of the  works yard and interfered with the "safe operation  of the Arts Centre fire exits".  Examination by village staff Friday, revealed that  thelfence had not been correctly placed and that the  Arts Centre sits on the limit of their own boundary.  The direction of expansion proposed by the Arts  Council was towards the present Sechelt works yard.  When the five year renewable lease was signed in  1978, it stated that the Arts Council would lease three  65 foot lots from Sechelt village at $1 a year and  allow the village to retain "the use of that portion of  the said property lying east of the line drawn parallel  to and perpendicularly distant fifty feet from the east  boundary thereof for the purpose of a public works  Sent hack for redraft  Board rescinds  averaging by-law  The proposed by-law to dispense with averaging In  subdivisions got short shrift from the regional board  at the planning meeting held last week.  Before the proposed by-law had even been  distributed, Sechelt representative Brian Stelck had  suggested that the first and second readings should be  rescinded.  The by-law change had been strongly opposed by  representatives of the development interests at a  public hearing held recently in Sechelt. Developers  argued that removal of the averaging concept would  drive the cost of homes out of the reach of 'the little  man'. Regional board planners had proposed the  change because averaging led to spot or cluster  development which was expensive to service.  Regional directors were unanimous that the change  in the concept was too sweeping and voted to rescind  second reading of the new by-law. It will now have to  be re-drafted and its impact modified before going  again before public hearing.  yard until such time as an alternative site is found for  such use".  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch stated that the village has  plans to use a five acre portion of land just past the  Sechelt Arena as a works yard "at some time in the  future, when we can get it out of the ALR and build a  road to it. At the moment, that site is not practical  and we have nowhere else to go. We need somewhere  to store our equipment now and for a few years down i  the road."  Former Arts Council president Doris Crowston  told the Coasl News that when the lease was signed!  "Harold Nelson was mayor and certainly that was  our understanding, that we would want to expand  our facilities in the future and that the works yard  would be vacating that property eventually".        i  Mayor Koch stated that "the village does not want !  a confrontation on this issue and would like to work  out something that would be amicable to both sides.  "Until Wednesday night, we had no inkling tfat  the Arts Council is planning an expansion, but it is  possible that they can expand in another direction.  The Arts Centre is a well structured, well run, needed  facility on the Sunshine Coast but I am sure that not  eVen 50% of the residents of Sechelt enjoy it. We  need a works yard for all the residents of Sechelt and  we have no money to purchase a new site for it.  "If it is the wish of the residents of Sechelt to support the Arts Council and encourage its expansion,  then we will be glad to hear about it and work out an  agreement suitable to both parties."
