 '   ���..  ..:.-.-  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  90.8  g Jan Michael Sherman  In a compact, upbeat speech  which bore all the earmarks of a  whistlestop campaign address,  Premier William Vander Zalm  turned time and again to the  tlieme of provincial prosperity  as achieved and fine-tuned by  his Socred administration.  "We do have a wonderful  quality of life in BC!" he  assured some 100-odd members  and guests of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce.  "And," he asserted, "we intend  to keep it this way!"  The premier went to some  lengths to make sure his audience understood just how  poorly other provinces - and  countries - were faring in comparison with British Columbia.  "Alberta and Saskatchewan  are in great fiscal trouble. Even  Ontario - which was riding high  - is (starting to encounter)  serious problems. But we have  much to be proud of. We're the  only province with a balanced  budget."  Vander Zalm beamed out at  his quiet, but completely attentive audience. "We created  almost half of all the new jobs  in the country last year - and BC  never had it so good!!"  has only three million people!"  Striking a more sombre note,  the premier noted lhat "we're  doing what we can to cushion  the blow of an economic  downturn in BC - if this should  come about. We want to be  more read than anywhere else in  the country!"  Vander Zalm took a swipe at  Ottawa, raising the issue of the  national debt. "Canada now  has the biggest national debt -on  a per capita basis - in the  Western world! Thirty-five  cents of each and every lax  dollar goes to pay the interest  on the debt! Il's been predicted!  lhat this will rise to SO cents by  1995. How come?  The premier's answer lo his  own rhetrical question question  was promptly forthcoming.  "The (federal) solution seems to  be yet another tax - the GST.  And this is a complex tax, one  that is difficult to calculate and  collect."  Seguing from the national  scene, Vander Zalm said it was  fortunate that BC has escaped  most taxation problems, but he  made it clear that his opposition  were to be accorded no credit  for this situation. "My opposi  tion is still asking for more and  more dollars to be spent! Ami  where is this money to come  from? New taxes. Higher income taxes. Possibly a real  estate tax."  The pretnier made the observation that the "uncertainty in  the country stems (directly)  from all these taxes and proposed new taxes!"  Vander Zalm then turned to  the issue of what kind of a  government he and his party  had given the province so far,  and it was at this point that  many listeners smiled and nodded discreetly in approval.  "We have been Often and  responsive to everybody in Ihis  province! We have been sensitive to the needs of people.  Ministers from all departments  have criss-crossed BC and we  have wound up implementing  many recommendations."  Vander Zalm upped the wattage  on his already megawatt grin:  "You've never had it so good  -and nobody's done it as well as  we have!"  The chief executive concluded  his remarks to solid, albeit un-  sustained, applause. Mayor  Tom Meredith delivered a brief,  Premier William Vander Zalm addresses Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  but pithy "thank you", while  still managing to raise an issue  of concern to all Sunshine Coast  residents.  "In the first seven months of  -Jill MkhMl Sherman photo  1990, Mister Premier, Seel il  has doubled its housing starts  over lasl year. We are rapidly  becoming a bedroom community to Vancouver. Some of you  might not like this - but the  secret is out on the lower Sunshine Coast!" Turning to smile  benignly at Vander Zalm and  Please turn to page 4  :  3  V.

Wilson, who met with the  Honourable Rita Johnston,  Minister of Transportation and  Highways, in Powell River on  Wednesday, August 15, said  that the minister "...seemed  unaware of the concerns of the  people of the Sunshine Coast,  as far as the use of the New  Westminster is concerned.  "Ms Johnston seemed surprised that there were concerns  over Route Three. However,  my meeting provided me the opportunity to address the concerns expressed by the commuters and Coast residents.  There is no doubt that she now  understands our concerns, and  Ms Johnston has committed to  review the decision that has  been taken by the BC Ferry  Corporation."  In his remarks to Ihe  minister, Wilson stressed that  Route Three must be given a  higher priority in the overall  planning by the BC Ferry Corporation and presented alternatives to the decision.  "The numbers tell us that  there 's a need for a schedule  that provides more frequent  sailings. If the Queen of New  Westminster is to come on this  route, then it should be joined  by the Queen of Burnaby, with  an extended schedule. Whatever  is decided, the residents of the  Coast deserve better consideration than they have been provided to this date."  Festival fireworks  < by Kerry Mills  The Sechelt Indian Band is  looking forward to hosting the  Save the Strait Marathon Faire  n*-Trail toy Field on August 25  ���8��d26.  According to a spokesperson,  it is an opportunity for the band  to express to a wider audience  what tend Elders have been  saying for a long lime; The  Strait of Georgia is being robbed of its marine and mammal  life by irresponsible practices  from many sources.  Pulp mills, refineries, mines,  chemical plants, sewer outfalls,  and dump sites have all raised  the level of pollution in the  Strait of Georgia lo the point  where many of the natives'  traditional food sources have  vanished.  Del Paul, who is coordinating  Ihe event between Ihe band and  the Save the Strait Alliance, told  the Coast Ne.ws that the majority of the Sechelt Indians support holding ihe fair on band  land because "it presents us  with a chance to address what  the elders have told us for years;  there has been too much  damage done to the water. The  Sechelt people have suffered a  great loss of traditional food.  There used to be an ample  Literary lights shine on brightly  by Peter Trower  Like many other people both  local and otherwise, I am  becoming a veteran of that  valuable institution, Sechelt's  Festival of the Written Arts.  From its -humble beginnings  eight years back, the Festival  has burgeoned into a four day  gala firmly esconced in  Rockwood Centre; known and  respected across Canada.  As a reporter, I have been  privileged to cover all these  events with the exception of the  first. It was a pleasure to  assume this task once again.  As in the past, logistical problems compelled me to miss the  early morning talks. I managed  to catch 11 speakers however ���  several of them truly memorable.  I first encountered Joe Swan  on a visit to the Vancouver  Police Museum a couple of  years luck. Swan, born in  England to a family of police-e  men in 1935, comes by his interest in crime and law enforce  ment quite naturally.  He joined the Vancouver  Police Department in 1965,  worked in many capacities, and  edited the police magazine The  Thin Blue Line. He was instrumental in founding the  museum and look early retirement in 1987, to become its full-  time curator.  In his authorial capacity,  Swan has published a history of  the Vancouver Police Force, A  Century Of Service (1986) and  writes true crime articles for the  Eastender newspaper.  Joe Swan, a dark-complexioned man with a Clark Gable  moustache is introduced by  retired RCMP officer, Davis  Foss. He begins with a generalization discussion of true crime  writing, danger of law suits, etc.  ��� then offers a detailed account of the Castellani murder  case ��� one of the first instances  of arsenic poisoning sines Victorian times.  Swan proceeds to recount the  poignant 'Babes in the Woods'  mystery, where the bodies of  two children were found in  Stanley Park. He goes on to  describe the Errol Flynn autopsy and the grotesque Ducharmc  case. Fasinating, frequently  ghoulish fare for the late morning crowd.  Ronald Wright is a travel  writer with a difference. He  does in-depth reponage in the  Paul Thoreaux tradition,  employing dialogue and an  almost novelistic technique.  Wright, another expatriate Brit  born in 1948, received an MA in  Archaeology and Anthropology  from Cambridge in 1973.  He emigrated to Canada and  took up the peripatetic life of a  iravel writer, largely in South  America. He has published 14  major travel articles and his  books include Cut Stones and  Crossroads (1984) and Time  Among the Maya (1989).  For his talk, Wright concentrates on this latter book, his  most recently published work.  A slim, affable man wilh a sure  stage presence, he brings his  Guatemalan adventures to vivid  life, employing an actor's grasp  of the Creole dialect to great effect. The Mayans have a unique  concept of time involving  shamanistic figures called 'Day  Keepers'. He describes  graphically a bizarre ritual in a  smokey cave where strange  practices are carried oul. Wright  has been to the experiential  limits. He leads us easily and  memorably in the outre.  Spider Robinson, sci-fi  master, lakes us beyond the  limits of the earth altogether.  His job is mapping the totally  unknown, limited only by his  imagination ��� which is considerable. Robinson ��� a some-  lime folk singer and onetime  morgue attendant ��� bwame  hooked on science fiction at the  age of five. He sold his first  story to Analog in 1973 and has  been cranking oul award-  Please lira to page It  amount of herring spawn each  year in Porpoise Bay, but they  disappeared some years ago.  We had band members travel lo  Tofino for the herring spawn,  because it is so important to the  elders, but now the spawn have  vanished from there too."  Paul said lhat for some time  now, the elders have been expressing a sense of loss, and that  it is hard for the younger people  to witness how much they suffered. "Our people are al a total  loss given the disappearance of  these traditional foods."  The Sechelt band will be  receiving representatives from  the Sliammon band from the  Powell River area, and the  Mystic Spirit Canoe Club will  send oul iheir own canoes lo  greet the vessels crossing  Georgia Strait from bands in  Nanaimo, Saanich, and Comox. The Sechell Elder Sociely  Group will sel up a fundraising  salmon barbeque. and Ihere will  be entertainment and crafts on  Ihe site.  Paul said that security appeared to be well prepared lo  enforce the ban on alcohol and  drugs at the site, and to keep the  band residents content during  the influx of people Into iheir  neighbourhood.  Poet Irving Layton drew a full house at the Sechelt Festival or the  Written Arts, and then attracted a long line of fans with books for  him to autograph. -Kern? Mllh photo :  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  i  HUf  IMf It -���*��-fcJA,^^A,:t���^^w./v^fc^.^,t^l^,.,c^^^Ja.^gr*.���* * Coast News, August 20,1990  Comment  l"-  m  Is  8  No divining rods  Last week the Sunshine Coast Regional District's Planning and Public Utilities committees considered ��� and  then denied ��� an application by a company (Aquasource  Ltd.) for a license to allow the bulk export of Sunshine  Coast water.  This started us thinking. Water, even more lhan fossil  fuel oil, is indispensable to life. And while some have  argued that Canada is an enormous country with more  than enough water supplies to warrant the sale of some  abroad, we believe this argument fails to hold water.  For instance, under the Free Trade Agreement, should  Canada enter into any bulk water sales to the United  Stales, we could nol simply turn off the tap whenever it  suited our purposes. Once a precedent is set, and we are  perilously close lo setting one, the die will tie cast.  We single out our neighbours to the south only because  they are, once again, the most logical and eager customer.  While we feel bulk water should not be sold abroad to  anyone, the plain fact is thai Washington is ��� and has  been ��� vigourously lobbying Ottawa for just such water  arrangements. If Canadians in general do not become intimately acquainted with this pressing issue, the fear of  many, laymen and experts alike, is thai we might all be  confronted wilh a fait accompli we would find difficult to  swallow.  The fact is that many urban centres in this country are  already faced with critical water shortages and other  related problems. And when most of us think about water  ��� if we think about it at all ��� it is usually in terms of  human consumption. It might be wise to pause more often  to consider thai industrial processing makes inordinate,  and every-growing, demands on this precious resource.  Recreational usage of our water and its accompanying  pollution (Canadian boats are not required to be equipped  with holding tanks for effluent, for example) takes its own  growing toll of what most regard as an inexhaustible  number of rivers, lakes, and oceans.  By virtue of our limited lifespans, we humans tend to  view much of life from a short-term perspective. Our taps  runneth over today, roughly ten litres of water go sluicing  down the drain every time we flush our "modern" toilets,  so what is there to worry about?  "You don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry." This  admonition is still current today because it speaks to what  would appear to be a universal truth of human nature.  We can squander our water, contaminate and befoul it,  and even trade it off for greenbacks. This seems to be the  course we are taking presently.  Then again, there is no law against changing course,  anymore than there is against changing our minds.  There is still time for us to set water policies which will  not only be economically and environmentally sound but  will enable us to ensure a legacy of plentiful, potable water  for the generations which will follow.  As another old wise saying suggests: "Take what you  need and leave the rest."  5 YEARS AGO  The Department of Fisheries closed all of Sechelt Inlet and Porpoise Bay to the digging of all molluscs, due  to the presence of Red Tide.  Foresty officials indicated that conditions in the  forest were registering in the top end and, given the way  things were developing, conditions could easily become  extreme.  10 YEARS AGO  Six people have been arrested on Texada Island in  demonstrations calling for a public meeting into the  justification of the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power line.  20 YEARS AGO  The Coast News staff were enjoying two weeks of  their summer vacation.  30 YEARS AGO  Sechelt District School Board was informed that the  new schools at Halfmoon Bay and Sechelt have been  completed and may be occupied.  35 YEARS AGO  The Welcome Beach Community Association asked  that the road from Redrooffs to Northwest Bay hill  where it joins the highway be improved and maintained  so that a bus service can reach the area.  40 YEARS AGO  Construction of an addition to the Army, Navy, and  Airforce Hall on Gambier Island got a real boost from a  volunteer work party last week.  45 YEARS AGO  It was recently discovered that a bear was responsible for killing 22 of E.J. Myers' sheep in the Kleindale  area. Cougars had originally been blamed for the raid,  but tracks were found at the scene of the crime and  identified as those of bears.

In a nutshell  Innovative TV surveyed  by S. Nutter  In recent weeks we have had  re-runs of two mini-series each  of which, when they came out  last year, was hailed in many  places as the ultimate state of  the art of modern television  theatrical production.  Both of them came over, initially at least as kinds of  puzzles. They were made of a  number of short scenes, most of  which were clear enough in and  of themselves. But how they fitted overall, what in fact it was  all about, was made to seem  almost willfully mysterioso.  In one, 'The Singing Detective', a pulp detective writer is in  bed in a hospital with a divadful  skin disease. In a fevered sort of  way he concurrently recalls  scenes from his past and sketches out his next story. It is the  show's music, however, v^iich  link the scenes from the past,  comment on the present, ana  point up the witty gallantry of  the protagonist.  The music is entirely songs,  popular songs current in their  various times, and the truly innovative thing about the production is that a style has been  found in which the characters  (any characters; psychiatrists,  patienls-on-the-brink-of-death,  people from the past), may at  any time for a chorus, break the  action, and give us a rousing  rendition of some once loved  old pop bit.  The other TV masterwork is  really quite different, as different perhaps as you can get.  'Twin Peaks' is an attempt to  make a kind of Greek Tragedy  for television out of day to day  life in a northwestern town on  the Pacific. The town is- about  the size of ours and just down  the coast ��� one of the locations, an up-scale whorehouse,  is across ihe line in Canada but  obviously easily accessible.  Could you make a Greek  Tragedy out of life in Gibsons?  One that would mean anything?  David Lynch, writer/producer  of Twin Peaks has found a way  to approach it, but whether it  means anything is very much up  in the air.  The .way to approach it is  through characters who are  role-players in real life (men in  masks); a catch-as-catch-can  approach to reality; a truly  champion pitch in weeping and  wailing, mostly female; and a  portentous and forboding accent in the direction of all, even  the most minor scenes.  This of course is heavily  underscored by the music. At  the start where a body is found  by a role-playing fisherman the  theme is introduced. It is a  groaning funeral dirge which  could possibly replace the Dead  March from Saul. It repeats of  course throughout and serv<es to  keep us on the 9111 vivre when  we are looking at some simple  scene like someone pouring coffee in a diner.  All this stuff is sorely needed.  The dialogue isn't up to much  (role-players by definition make  poor dialogue), and the story,  unresolved in this mini-series by  the way, is not one that would  usually draw this kind of treatment.  There are not really any  serious villains in this town, but  the citizens as we meet them are  mainly not nice people at all.  They are with few exceptions  downright nasty, and this seems  to be accepted by the population at large as just the way  things are. Give this kind of  thing a bogus mythical touch  and the whole scene might be  accepted as perhaps the way  things were ordained.  In 'Singing Detective' the  man is subjected to something  like the trials of Job, and he  copes in a very human way with  humour and song. The characters are for real, and while the  format allowing the songs is of  course artificial, reality is what  this is all aboul.  The style of Singing Detective  can hardly tie used much again.  The style of Twin Peaks is, I  fear, likely to lead to all sorts of  derivative facsimilies. If, as  some folk say, what we really  feel we want in these days is  some form of tribidism, then  Twin Peaks and ils followers  may show us part of the way.  The Bear  The bear puts both arms around the tree above her  And draws It down as if ft were a lover  And Its choke-cherries lips to kiss good-by.  Then lets it snap back upright In the sky.  Her next step rocks a bowlder on the wall  (She's making her cross-country In the fall.)  Her great weight creaks the barbed-wire in its staples  As she flings over and off down through the maples,  Leaving on one wire tooth a lock of hair.  Such is the uncaged progress of the bear.  The world has room to make a bear feel free;  The universe seems cramped to you and me.  Man acts more like a poor bear In a cage  That all day fights a nervous Inward rage,  His mood rejecting all his mind suggests.  He paces back and forth and never rests  The toe-nail click and shuffle of his feet.  The telescope at one end of his beat.  And at the other end the microscope,  Two instruments of nearly equal hope.  And in conjunction giving guile a spread.  Or if he rests from scientific tread,  'TIs only to sit back and sway his head  Through ninety odd degrees of arc, it seems.  Between two metaphysical extremes.  He sits back on his fundamental butt  With lifted snout and eyes (If any) shut,  (He almost looks religious but he's not),  And back and forth he sways from cheek to cheek.  At one extreme agreeing with one Creek,  At the other agreeing with another Greek  Which may be thought, but only so to speak.  A baggy figure, equally pathetic  When sedentary and when peripatetic.  Robert Frost  A visit to the South  The people of Alabama  by Bev Cranston  As far as the eye can see, the  parched, rolling hills are dotted  with massive white oak and  pecan Irees. This is the visla  from my family's once proud  but humble house. Ten sons of  the Sharpe family were raised  here. Consequently, len small  houses were built by the old  man for them. Three or four are  still standing, piled to one side  by the white sand of White  Plains, Chambers County,  Alabama.  Large patches of the hills produce a product that is an important part of the economy today  of Alabama; Pine irees which  are ready for harvesting 15  short years from seedling time.  But the tradition-steeped state  known as King of Cotton is no  more. Where cotton was once  nurtured in abundance, the  stately pines now stand. Cotton  is a rarity in .Alabama now. Pine  trees are king.  The Daniel Sharpe plantation  where the old stone chimney  still stands and the crape myrtle  trees with their glorious pink  blossoms still grow, is now  home to the new but also  natural product of white pine.  To stand in the suffocating heat  and smell the dry pine, and at  the same time continue to walk  and step in the dry grass for fear  of chigger bites or red devil  ants, was truly communing with  my past.  On this same spot Yankee  soldiers came and seized the  healthy horses and mules from  my great-great-grandfather's  stock. In return, they left their  near dead horses. Not a word  was spoken. There was only  fear and hate. On other occasions, on this same spot,  Yankee soldiers stormed the  house, stealing what they could,  and even barging into a  bedroom where one of the  daughters was laying with child.  Later at the end of the Civil  War, Daniel Sharpe himself was  known to have hidden in the  barn for weeks to avoid conscription. Desperate for cannon  fodder, the Confederacy was  sniffing oul any male capable of  shouldering a rifle. Indeed,  Sharpe sons died and sons from  the closely related McCarley  family perished in this terrible,  internecine conflict.  After 1865, the plantation  dissolved. Family members left  to homestead in Texas, Florida  and Kansas. Some stayed, a few  to eventually fight the ever-  manacing Ku Klux Klan. The  Klan not only strung up blacks,  but black sympathizers. The  Sharpes were a famliy caught in  the middle. They loved their  south and their southern home,  and they treated their 90-odd  slaves with dignity, not bung  able to run thdr plantation  without them.  Some sons fought for the  Confederate State, some for the  North. What a turmoil to be in.  It was the end of the great  South, that is for sure.  Today, however, southern!  hospitality still does exist and  persists. I have never met such  friendly people, even at the very  busy Atlanta airport. They feed  you really well, more than you  can eat for five dollars.  Some of the southern dishes I  truly relish are deep fried catfish  (tastes like trout), deep fried  frog legs which tastes like  chicken (the frogs are raised  commercially), black-eyed peas  (delicious staple food), okra,  lima beans, locally grown sweet  potatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon (giant ones sell for 99  cents) and peanuts (really fresh  roasted). Thankfully, I have not  encountered any possum pie,  which I could not have  stomached.  Every morning with your  breakfast they serve a big blob  of grits which is white corn  mush, smothered in melted butter. Bdng a porridge hater, I  couldn't eat this dish.  Glorious re-stored old mansions abound, along with  overflowing antique shops, low  prices and ubiquitous hospitality. "Y'all come back, now" is  genuinely spoken. On your next  holiday, try the southern states.  You'll love them. Hospitality is  alive there.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNINC  newspaper Coast News, August 20,1990  Seniors have their say on Block 7  Editor:  With the date of the Block  Seven referendum approaching,  it would seem prudent that the  Sechelt Seniors Branch 69  should make their position very  clear through the media to the  taxpayers of Sechelt with regard  to our position. To date, the  local press and the District of  Setchelt have released information on their behalf. The time  has arrived when the position of  Sechelt Seniors Branch 69  should be made abundantly  clear on the issue.  Our branch owns outright  our present hall and property on  Mermaid Street as well as a property of 100 feet by 405 feet on  Trail Avenue in Sechelt upon  which we anticipated constructing our new hall. This hall was  to be made available to the  various organizations in Sechelt  and vicinity on a rental basis as  our present facility on Mermaid  Street.  Our organization had advanced to the stage where we  had spent $25,000 on a plan for  the Trail Avenue property when  we were approached by the  mayor and council, under Bud  Koch and, later, under council  and Mayor Meredith, to consider moving our proposed hall  to a lease property on a portion  of Block Seven. The change, if  desired, was with the approval  of the provincial government.  At the present time the lease of  property (and specifically property alone) is under consideration by our branch.  There seems to tie some  misunderstanding or misinterpretation by the residents of the  Sunshine Coast of various press  releases over the last extended  period, which may or may not  indicate that the proposed hall  was to tie built by the District of  Sechelt. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Present  assets, cash, and government  grants for which our branch has  expended blood, sweat and  tears over the last 10 years has  assured thai we are well on the  road toward looking after the  building costs of our proposed  building.  The referendum that will be  voted on in Septemeber refers  specifically to the lease of approximately 14,000 square feet  of land only. Proposed terms of  an agreement between the  District of Sechelt and Sechelt  Seniors Branch 69 on this proposed lease are at present .underway, and when finalized by  both .parties will lie presented to  our lawyers for their persual. If  the agreement seems favourable  to both parties and the  September referendum passes,  then plans could proceed.  A divisive council and Sunshine Coast residents should be  aware that the proposed hall,  wherever it is constructed, will  be available lo the community  on a rental basis for the seating  of 300 plus individuals for community functions as well as our  regular activities. It will be controlled and maintained exclusively by Branch 69.

The  meal was delicious and the  entertainment was polishtxl and  professional. But I hadn't come  to be entertained; I had come to  hear my premier talk about  issues that concern me and my  neighbours and to have him  hear what we had to say about  those issues.  Mr. Vander Zalm spoke for  half an hour about how important communication was to him  and his colleagues, but only in  the last 15 minutes did he  'graciously consent to answer  questions from the floor'.

What I  had a right to expect was a  dialogue; what I got was a  monologue.  Oh, well, half a loaf is better  than none. Or is it?  Mr. Vander Zalm spent much  of his time 'Ottawa bashing'  ���which, Lord knows, Ottawa  deserves���but he didn't have  any suggestions about how  either he, his government or we  could alleviate the problems.

However, I do  my shopping in Sechelt and am  always shocked by the visual  impact of the huge area of  devastation on the hillside.  I have just learned from the  SCRD that the land is not Indian Band land; it is Crown  land! Moreover the mining  operation is run by a huge  multi-national company and the  logging is being done by a large  logging company.  I am appalled at the breach of  the trust residents should be  able to have in their elected officials, both in Victoria and  locally. How glad I am that do  not live in Sechelt.

Before departing the rostrum,  His Worship lavished praise on  MLA Harold Long's efforts  and tenacity, referring to Long  in the most complimentary  tones as "...small, but like a terrier with a rat in his mouth."  Following lunch, the premier  returned to field some half-  dozen questions from the  crowd, joking that "if you have  any questions, I'll try to find the  right ministers to refer them  to."  A female member of thi  Young Socreds asked him to  comment on "...our Indian  problem."  The genial premier replied  that, "We have accepted all  recommendations of the  (premier's) council on Native  Affairs...and will quickly  establish a process to help the  federal government negotiate  and settle outstanding land  claims in the province."  Then, smiling broadly and  turning to gesture at Chief Tom  Paul and Stan Dixon who were  seated at a front table, Vander  Zalm decried the Oka situation  and other native protests across  the country, adding that, "If all  native groups were as  reasonable as our friends here,  everything could be resolved  more readily."  Mayor Diane Strom of Gib-'  sons, noted that, "There is great  concern by (Sunshine Coast)  commuters regarding the ferries  - and people want answers, Mr.  Premier."  Vander Zalm replied briefly,  saying that, "There is a proposal put forward for fast ferry  service involving passengers only."  A gentleman, making more  of a statement than posing a  question, wondered what  Vander Zalm's feelings were  regarding the (excessive)  number of civil servants  generally.  "There were 47,000  bureaucrats who took office,"  ihe premier noted. "That's been  reduced to 27,000." He grinned  and added, "It doesn't hurt to  have a little less government!"  There was some cheering and  applause in response.  SaveGeora/a  '  w    tStmit  MARATHON Augusyf  Leave from Nanaimo or Sechelt.  Support craft neseded.

"As a horticulturalist I know  I can't grow little treses .among  big tress. If we want a continuing source of trees, we must  have a process which will ensure  the supply." He paused for a  moment, then went on to say  that, "We've had too (many)  large areas of clear cut. We  should have them in strips.  However, the process is mostly  in place and being worked on."  The premier was asked  whether, given the remarks  made by Mayor Meredith with  regard to the population explosion on the Sunshine Coast, the  area should continue to be 'promoted aggressively' and, in-  deeed, whether this policy was  'prudent'.  Speaking over a number of'  cheers and a modicum of applause, Mr. Vander Zalm simply noted that, "Local governments should hopefully consult  with the people."  As the luncheon crowd  dispersed, the premier glad-  handed his way out of the  restaurant and across the parking lot, as affable and accessible  as when he arrived. An elderly  gentleman shook his head and  pronounced with some concern,  "He's running all right. I wish  he wouldn't. He's got some  serious problems. I kinda wish  he'd wait a while."

Fred Gazeley, contract supervisor for Mainland Logging in  Port Mellon, estimates there  were 300 lightning strikes in the  region the night of the electrical  storm.  "Not all of them started fires,  of course, and some may not  blaze up immediately." Fred  said. "I saw five strikes by lightning that Friday night of the  storm."  The Powell River Forestry office said there were 48 fires on  record at 9:30 the morning of  August 16, 34 of them active,  and two new reported since the  day before. The Sunshine Coast  Forestry District extends from  the Port Mellon region to Powell River and Bute Inlet.  Two fires on Gambier have  been contained with difficulty.  When asked whether the fire at  Halkett Bay, the marine park  on Gambier, was caused by a  campfire, the Forestry spokesman said, "No. There has bem  a campfire restriction there  since August 9."

That certain parcel or parcels of land In the Town of  Gibsons, more particularly known and legally  described as the southerly 36.59 meters of Lots H  and I of Lot 1, Block 7, D.L. 688, Plan 17997, be rezoned from the existing Marine Zone 1 (M.1) to the proposed (General) Commerical Zone (C.1).  2. This bylaw may be cited as "Zoning Amendment  Bylaw No. 555-45,1990."  3. A copy of this Bylaw may be inspected at the Gibsons  Municipal Hall, 474 South Fletcher Road In Gibsons,  British Columbia during office hours, namely 8:30 a.m.  to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday (Statutory Holidays excepted).  Take notice that this notice Is deemed to be a synopsis of  the bylaw, and not deemed to be an interpretation thereof.

Now air tankers have been  available ��� some have come  from the Yukon, and a couple  of amphibious planes from Ontario. The latter can re-load on  the saltchuck, and the wheeled  planes at Abbotsford. But the  re-loading at Abbotsford is only  about a half hour from tanks  with liquid retardant (sea weed,  etc.)  "Many of BC based helicopters are in Oregon and California at fires there. A Forestry  policy not to pay expenses (ferry  fare) back to BC has delayed  their return until reduced fire  hazards in Oregon releases  them," Fred told us.  And the old practice of conscripting firefighters on the  street or working in mill shifts is  no longer used although still in  force. A Forestry spokesman  said, "Trained firefighters are  what is needed now and we use  staff for this; namely to be fire  bosses, to direct air tankers and  the rapattack boys who prepare  helicopter pads for access to  fires."  "Loggers have been fighting  fires near the Tetrahedron  region," Fred said. "That could  be destructive if a fire got in  there."  "You know," he said, "Forest fires destroy more timber  than is taken out by logging."  ROWING ENTHUSIAST  Rowing is an all-important  pursuit for Stephen Frisch who  has recently returned from  Lucerne, Switzerland, where he  competed as a member of the  Canadian 8's team in an international regatta.  "The Canadian team won the  silver medal, the first medal for  Canada since 1984," Stephen's  mother told us.  Since the athletes must qualify for each event the Canadian  team enters, Stephen has been  in strict training this year, most  of it on Elk Lake near Victoria.  The next competition he hopes  to qualify for is the Canadian  entry in the World Championships this October in Tasmania.  Stephen completed his Grade  10 in Elphinstone and his Grade  12 in Brentwood College on  Vancouver Island. He has a BA  degree in economics and  marketing from the University  of Washington in Seattle which  he completed in 1989.  KUWAIT  Arlene Baird has told us that  her son, John Robinson, is a  member of the crew of the supply ship, Protecteur, which is  part of Canada's naval contribution to the international  force on station near Kuwait.  John graduated from Elphinstone in 1986, took his chefs  training at Vancouver Vocational Institute, and then joined  the Canadian Forces (Air Force)  as a cook three years ago.

"A" Want Ad 'Wrings You Ready "Cash!  by He\ Cranston, 8*6-2215  I don't know the name of my  favourite rose. All I do know is  that it is an antique rose, hot  pink in colour and with a shape  and perfume that you cannot  find at any nursery. Every year  it sends up shoots from the  ground, and I jusi let them go.  They produce the same beautiful hot pink, graceful petals  every time.  When living at my old beach  house in Roberts Creek, I was  thrilled to find that there were  many old and wildly growing  climbing roses. They twined into the 20 foot holly tree, they  grew up against the cottage and  even on an old TV antenna near  the beach. These roseK were pale  pink and while. No one had  pruned or cared for ihem in  many a year, bul they produced  flowers in abundance.  One day as I was watching  birds' antic on the rocks, I  noticed from the kitchen window that there was a new colour  amongst the bright orange  daylilies. A tiny hot pink struggling rose, starved and stunted,  had shown up. We were close to  moving into the new house we  had txeen working on, and I was  looking for cuttings and small  plants to start.  The owners will never miss  this tiny rose, 1 thought. It's trying so hard to survive. I got a  spade and started digging a couple of feet around it. I couldn't  believe that it was still alive,  when I discovered the rose had  been set in the ground in a metal  container about one foot in  diameter. The pot was broken  and half rotted away. 1 guess  the rose sent roots through  those cracks to get what  nourishment il could.  So I dug it out, pruned it  slightly, and set it in a large pot  of good fresh dirt, peat and  manure. For two years the rose  sat on ihe porch, growing only  slightly, but still producing two  or three beautiful flowers each  June and again in September.  The third spring I decided it  was time for it to be planted in  the ground again, but this time  not in a tiny pot. So 1 selected  the best spot, prepared the  ground and set it in. That rose  loved it. Two years later it is  now covered with over 20  blooms and stands over six feet  with lovely dark green small  leaves. I pamper ii as if it really  did have feelings.  I only wish I could share with  my late, great-uncle Preston,  the tale of my salvaged antique  rose. He was a long time  member of the Vancouver Rose  Sociely. Many of his prize-  winning roses were willed lo  Queen Elizabeth Park and my  father's rose garden.  There are a lot of great  gardeners in Roberts Creek bul  I have nol seen a lol of roses  here. This has been a perfect  summer for roses, since they  thrive on the heat. Try digging  up a small corner of your  garden for roses. They require a  little more care than mosl  flowers bul ihey are worth it.  THE DAZE  Roberts Creek had a perfect  day weatherwise and otherwise  for ihe Daze. Lots of fun, kids,  and music happened all day.  The dances were sellouts and  brought out all those Creekers  and other Coasters lhal love to  party, boogey and have a good  time. The Ross Barrett Band  (sorry for the misspelling last  week) was great. I esepecially liked the two saxes and great  vocalists.

My concerns  about the three stories have  been satisfied. However, I'd still  like to hear your comments!

Sechelt    Scenario  Strait goods only  by Margaret Walt, 885-3364  In the dictionary, strait, is  defined as, 1. a narrow channel  connecting two bodies of water,  and 2. Distress or need. It seemed that both of these definitions  apply to our own Strait of  Georgia. Unfortunately. With  all that in mind, there will be a  Save the Strait Marathon and  Faire, on Saturday and Sunday,  August 25 and 26.  On Saturday, you can paddle, swim, .sail or kayak across  the Strait from Nanaimo. And  on Sunday, there will be an environmental fair on the Sechelt  Indian Band land. Everyone is  invited.  There will be eco booths,  food booths and craft booths  plus entertainment and activities  for the children. This is going to  be a real family affair. If you  have always been meaning to  get involved, now's your  chance. Let's clean up the  beautiful Strait of Georgia.  On Saturday night, in conjunction with the Save the Strait  Marathon and Faire, there will  be a dance at the Sechelt Legion  Hall. This dance is open to the  public; you don't have to be a  member of the legion to attend.  The tickets are $10 and all the  proceeds go the local environmental groups. Music is by  the Stoaters, a Celtic rock  group. Also appearing are the  Clansmen. The Clansmen will  put on a stage show.  From what I can understand,  the Clansmen are straight from  Scotland and are a very visual,  highly entertaining group,  which you won't want to miss.  We're counting on all of you  jo' support the fair and the  .glance, and I'm sure we won't  be disappointed.  IMPORTANT MEETING  The District of Sechelt Concerned Citizen's Association  general meeting will be held  Sunday, August 26 at 2 pm at  Greenecourt.

It is three weeks to the judging time of Ihe largest sunflower  contest for children only up to  12 years of age. So give the  flowers plenty of water, while  there's still time. This year we  are judging on the Gibsons  Elementary playing field,  School Road, Highway 101,  Saturday, September 8 at 11  am.  The Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  is coming up and all gardeners  may enter the various  categories. There are many to  participate in. Pick up your  catalogue copy at local stores.  All this is taking place on the  same day, al the Womens' Institute Hall and St. Bartholomew's Hall, which will be  a hive of activity including art  and photography, crafts, a  'mult show', fun sports, salmon  barbecue and entertainment.  Just in Time  for Back to School  NOVA  Trail Bay Mall  885*2421  Of passing friends and seasons  by Ruth Forrester  The many friends of Frank  Raphael of Redrooffs Road  were saddened to learn of his  sudden passing last week.  It was in I9S8 that Frank first  came to the area while he was a  salcman for GWG, Great  Western Garments. He became  friendly with Jim Cooper who  had the store at Coopers Green  at lhal lime, and wound up buying property from Jim.  A summer place was buill  and   later   it   became   the  Raphael's permanent home.  It was only three years ago  that Ralph retired to enjoy some  leisure time on Redrooffs.  He was an active member of  the Welcome Beach Community Association and of the Sunshine Coast Golf Club and will  be missed by the many friends  he made in these organizations.  He is survived by his loving  wife Hazel, daughter Jean Moir  of Redrooffs and son John in  Delta, as well as four grandchildren. Our sympathies go out  to the family at this sad time.  Sechelt Seniors  Going mobile in RV  by Joyce Ostry  We returned recently from a  holiday drive through  Washington, Oregon, Idaho  and northern Nevada. Part of  our lun was giving a guess as to  . the value of 'units' we saw during our travels. I did some investigating on RVs and this is  some of the information 1  found.  ;' There is one delightful relire-  .iiiem activity which gives any  'adventurous person a genuine  reason lo jump oul of bed each  morning - the recreation vehicle  ���life.  With an RV, each day is an  adventure. What's that down  the road? What's of the other  side of that mountain range? Is  this the day to take pictures of  cactus flowers or lo barbecue  those steaks over a mesquite Are  in Ihe desert?  The Iravel irailer is probably  the most popular type of RV  followed by the motorhome,  truck-mounted camper and  converted van. Each has ils  adventages and disadvantages.  The trailer requires a towing  vehicle with enough power to  take it over the hills and mountains you will And along the way  and it must be equipped with a  trailer hitch and sway bar(s).  You'll need some practice backing it up. The advantages of  choosing a trailer include being  able to park it at your destination and still have a vehicle to  drive around in.  Motorhomes are usually  quite big but are surprisingly  easy lo drive. Wilh adequate  mirrors, ihey arc much easier to  back up lhan a trailer. Other advantages include being able to  step into ihe driving compartment and quickly move away  from any danger without having  to go outside. One disadvantage  is having to unhook all the park  connections each time you have  to drive somewhere and coming  back lo find another RV in your  lot. Of course, this problem can  be oven'ome by lowing a small  car behind the motorhome.  One of the advantages of a  truck-mounled camper is that  you can take if off and use the  truck for other purposes. They  arc usually shorter than a  molorhome so are easier to  manoeuvre in traffic. However,  ihey are sometimes top heavy  making them harder to drive in  strong winds and on steep sloping roads.  Connected vans, like truck  campers, are nimble in traffic  but also have small living areas  which may be cramped for  many folks on long trips. (The  snow bird saga continues next  week).  There is a bus trip to the PNE  on August 29. Transportation  leaves the Royal Bank in Sechelt  at 7:20 am for the 8:30 am sailing. The return is on the 5:30  pm sailing and the price is  $12.50 per person. Please phone  May at 885-5200 for reservations.  Pom pom work will begin  again at 9:30 am on August 23.  Mona Osborne says our supply  is almost nil and we need lo get  ahead.  Remember to turn in to  Branch 69 your money and  tickets for the Seniors' Lottery.  Do il soon, as ihe draw date is  September 14.  There will be a plant sale on  September 22 at II am. This  reminder gives members and  friends some time to get ready  for the sale.  There was a raffle at the picnic and the winners were Joyce  Ostry - the clock, Joan Fraser  -Ihe teddy bear, and Margaret  Carpenter - the stained glass.  There was a nice turnout for the  picnic that John Huyck organized the horseshoes and Marian  Cook called bingo.

Just over 40 people were  well fed and had a good opportunity to visit with friends and  neighbours. Thanks to all the  hard working committee  members who made this pleasant evening possible. Unfortunately we were unable to attend due to a conflict of dates  with the Festival of the Written  Arts, which was also a resounding success.  WHV?  In these days when we are so  aware of saving the environment and the creatures who  dwell therein, 1 find it beyond  my comprehension that some of  the summer visitors on our  beaches are lo be seen throwing  rocks at the geese as they innocently swim by their cottages.  Most of us find it a joy to see  the wildlife on our Coast surviving and happy. To deliberately  try to injure the geese or any of  our feathered creatures is, in my  opinion, quite outrageous. The  reason for this is given that they  'poo on our lawn!'. A pooper  scooper would soon remedy  that, or a wire fence, but,  please, stop trying to injure  them. The sad part is that the  children are doing it because  they see their parents and  grandparents throwing rocks,  and we all know what  marvellous mimics children can  be!

It's summer time and  with all this heat and wishing  for rain we seem to be going at a  slower pace, not that we go like  rockets other months.  The school building renovation fund keeps growing, thanks  to private donations, over $200,  and the bottle (can) drive, nearly $400.  The library on Wednesdays  has been open all summer in the  school. The coffee house evening may take a break for the  month of August then move  back to the school in the fall.  This is just a rumour, but I  don't have much news so I'll  makeup-stuff.  Vi Berntzen, who now lives in  downtown Madeira Park, went  to help at a car accident and  ended up riding to the hospital  in the ambulance herself.

The Bargain Barn in Madeira  Park will be closing if they  don't get more volunteer  workers and someone to run it.  That person could be from Egmont, Earls Cove or Ruby  Lake. Egmont women have  always been workers at the  Bargain Barn, and it is only  Thursday and Saturday, and  proceeds all go to the clinic that  we all use.  Mrs. Willcock noted that  discussions between the two  unions began last spring on the  subject of future growth  strategies. It was felt that a  merger would result in expanded services being made available  to PHCU members. These  would include packaged, combination chequing/savings accounts, a youth account, and  expanded banking hours. Further, significant cost efficiencies  would be achieved through a  consolidation of the operations.  The resulting liquidity .pool  would enhance the ability of the  credit union to meet future loan  demand.  Dale Eichar, general manager  of the SCCU, added that if the  merger is approved by the  PHCU members, pursuant to  the Credit Union Act, continuity of the Pender Harbour  branch and staffing would be  assured.  The proposed merger would  result in combined assets exceeding 45 million dollars.  n  j'-umum  GARDEN BAY  HOTEL  =^i  Drop oil Your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  AC BUILDING  SUPPLIES  In Madeira Park  until 3:30 Friday  "A FflaneJIy P.opl* PlaM"  Shop locally: Support your friends & neighbours.  10  :il  IB  ill  ���      -���-���*������ "���     ���   '-'  ���'   *  ��������� .'.-���-��� i ������; 1  :  i  .  rr 10.

Many of the  boats are beautiful to look at  but the one probably most  talked about by the staff was  the amphibious R.V. from  California   which,    having  missed the ferry at  Horseshoe Bay, simply took  to the water, arrived at our  launching ramp and drove  out onto the parking lot.  Visitors are constantly  amazed at the variety of  stock we carry in our store  and are pleasantly surprised  to find the prices are often  less than those in Vancouver.

MXwe, Vancouver, AC VtJSCtl  Dialogue with tha Baawr  The denizons of Stanley Park  by I*eter Trower  Vancouver's Stanley Park is  an oasis of relative changeless-  ness in a city that is constantly  expanding and mutating. Over  the years, my lady and 1 have  wandered most of its trails.  More and more of late,  however, we have found our  footsteps leading us to the path  that encircles the miniature  railway.  One morning a few months  back, we took this path, our  pockets full of peanuts and  birdseed. The usual contingent  of brash and cluttering squirrels  zeroed in on us, scaling our legs  like steeplejacks; aloof peacocks  pecked condescendingly at the  grain we offered and chickadees  flitted out of bushes to liberate  the seeds from my lady's hand.  It had become a pleasant ritual.  Despite the early hour, the  arctic wolves were keening eerily  as if lamenting the northern  wilds forever lost lo them. By  the time we reached their compound they had stopped thdr  mournful chorus and were  stalking among the trees like  ghosts. We passed the shaggy  prehistoric-looking bison hulking in their corral and reached  the beaver pond.  We had checked the pond  dozens of times before without  seeing a trace of the elusive  animals. Not so today. To our  delight, a real beaver had Anally  materialized, a chubby fellow  with a flat stubby tail.  He waddled up to the fence  and eyed us with a look of  trusting benevolence. We felt an  immediate rapport with him.  The beaver was obviously expecting something, but seeds or  peanuts did not seem appropriate fare. Then we  remembered the carrot sticks.  We had brought them along to  feed the rabbits, but they were  too paralyzed with timidity to  respond. My lady offered one lo  the waiting braver. He took it  politely in his small humanlike  hand, placed it carefully in his  mouth, chewed briefly and  reached up for another. His  manners were impeccable.  After consuming half a dozen  carrot chunks, the beaver padded back to the water and swam  off to his lodge. Thinking we  had seen the last of him, we  prepared to leave. Then to our  pleased surprise, he emerged  again, this time with his mate in  tow. The lady beaver, a smaller  animal with a cast in one eye,  came directly to the fence for  her carrot ration. Her thoughtful spouse toddled off and  began lo grind his ever-growing  incisors on a steel signpost. It  wasn't simply coincidence. He  had delibrately brought her to  us. We were charmed by the  gentlemanly act.  In the days that followed, our  talk kept coining back to the  wise and considerate beaver. He  had won our heaerts.  On our next visit to the pond,  its waters were empty of  anything except the resident  ducks. We gazed around in  < disappointment. Suddenly the  beaver appeared, motoring past  the waterfowl like a tubby  torpedo. Reaching the bank he  lumbered directly towards us. It  was as though he had somehow  known we were coming. Once  again he accepted our carrot  sticks in his well-mannered way.  We had definitely made a new  friend.  Our fascination with the  beaver continued. I went so far  as to phone the head-keeper at  the park to check on the origins  of him and his mate. I got a  book on beavers and honed up  on their habits. Remembering  having seen the famous while  'Indian'- Grey Owl as a boy in  England, and recalling his greal  love for the animals he called  the 'Utile People', I read about  him too. And one night I had a  very odd dream.  To lie continued...

'A  Counter Production' is a collection of recent paintings and  drawings mostly based on images from her domestic environment, celebrating the objects we  become familiar with as utensils  for our daily routine, or as  keepsakes thai are full of personal memories.  Though the show is not intended to be a statement about a  homemaker's role in society,  the title also refers to the struggle of a creative and independent individual trying to maintain some level of artistic  achievement while meeting the  challenges of marriage, mortgage, and motherhood.  Though she has many occupations while in pursuit of her art,  "parenting has been the most  demanding of these." In spite  of the demands, more than half  the florals, still lives, garden-  scapes, and landscapes in this  show have been done since her  arrival in Gibsons early this  year.  You are invited to meet this  talented and energetic artist at a  public reception held for her on  Saturday, August 25, 2 pm at  the Arts Centre. Coffee, tea and  food will be served for visitors.  'A Counter Production' remains on display until  September 8 from 10-4, Tuesday to Saturday, and 14 on  Sunday.  CRAfTPERSONS!

Red Cross  blood  donor  clinics  The Red Cross is hoping that  blood donors attending the  clinic at the Royal Canadian  Legion in Sechelt on Tuesday,  September 4 from 3 to 8 pm will  bring along more than a pint of  blood. Clinic organizers hope  that each donor will bring along  a new donor and introduce  them to donating blood and  help to fill the blood bank after  a long hot summer.  A Red Cross spokesperson  noted that "lt is very important  that the Sechelt Clinic exceed  the target of 150 units collected,  in order to fill hospital orders."  Authorities are concerned  that blood supplies will fall to  critical levels, particularly for O  Positive and any of the RH  Negative blood groups.  Who can donate? Healthy  adults weighing at least 100  pounds between the ages of 17  and 60 are eligible as first time  donors. Regular donors may  give the precious fluid until they  are 71. The Red Cross requests  donors to eat a substantial meal  within four hours prior to  donating.  ���GIBSONS  g*?LEGION  PmW    Branch KW  Coast News, August 20,1990 13.

The moment we stepped through Ihe doorway, we  were greeted by our waitress and shown to our seats. I chuckled as I saw we were  seated away from the elderly patrons and in an area where our soon-to-be aged  seven year old could stretch his..ahh..feet. Iff  A quick peruse of the menu revealed a tantalizing array of appetizers, salads,  and entrees. They didn't seem to have a children's menu, so we decided on a  shrimp cocktail for the little guy as he had had chicken strips the last time we were  here. For the two of us, we chose tossed green salads smothered with the house  dressing, and were plied with hot baked bread from the restaurant's own ovens  while we were waiting for Ihe main course to arrive.  My husband had chosen filet mignon, which was prime tenderloin, aged 28  days. It was wrapped in bacon and broiled to a succulent medium rare, while my  delicacy for tonight was barbequed baby back ribs. Ihey were seasoned with a  special blend of herbs and spices.  Both entrees were served with sliced carrots, baby peas in the shell and new  potatoes. They were of the mclt-in-your-moulh variety which brought raves. We  had originally agreed to trade a little of each other's entrees, but before we knew  il, there was nothing left on our plates.  Oh well, with dinner and coffee, the bill wasn't hard lo take either. It was only  $60 for the three of us.  Next time, it'll be Oysters Rockefeller and a king size Caribbean lobster.  Everyone should treat himself once in a while, and 1 know I thoroughly enjoyed  this one.  Average meal prices do not include liquor.

This, hopefully will  become an annual event and  grow lo larger proportions as  years move on.

Teams  from the VRU play it out annually for the Bob Spray  Trophy. Some excellent action  here as all the best 7's players  will be on hand. It takes place at  Brockton Oval on Saturday,  August 25 from 10:00 am onward.  September I, Labour Day  weekend is still a toss-up, not  knowing which tourney to attend (we're so popular) the  Cowichan 7's or Centennial  Cup 15's, Richmond. We'll  decide soon.

Provincial court  In provincial court July 31  three males were found, in  separate charges, guilty of impaired driving. One was fined  $400 and prohibited from driving for one year; another was  sentenced to 14 days and prohibited from driving for 18  months; the third was fined  $550 and prohibited from driving for one year.  In court on August 8 under  Section 472A of the Liquor  Control and Licensing Act, a  male was found guilty of failing  to leave a licensed premises  when requester', and was fined  $700 and placed under  recognizance to not enter the  Peninsula Motor Inn premises  for six months.  In provincial court August  14, Bruce Barry Bevan of Vancouver was found guilty of theft  and fined $300 and costs.  On April 8 Bevan was found  in the boneyard of the Port  Mellon construction site with  his red Ford pickup loaded with  scrap stainless steel although he  had no permit to take the scrap.  Her Honour Judge Giroday  found ihe evidence showed the  property was clearly signed  private and thai the company  re-used some of the scrap and  sold the remainder to dealers in  Vancouver.  In his defence Bevan, a  carpenter contractor who deals  in scrap as a sideline, said lhat  friends had told him there was  scrap lor the laking at Port  Mellon, and lhat he fell he was  doing a favour in removing a  portion of stainless steel from  whal appeared to him to be a  dump.  Shadow Baux Gallery was  fined $40 for not procuring a  business license by the required  deadling. They had obtained  their current license just before  being charged.

The deadline is Wednesday,  August 22 with the schedule for  the weekend available on Thursday, August 23, il being expected that Men's Singles will  start at 5 pm on Friday, with the  main action to go at 9 on Saturday.  Meanwhile the perpetual  trophies for all major events are  on display at Family Sports with  olher loot in store for winners  and runners-up in all events.  With contestants assured of at  least three matches, win or lose,  in all singles and doubles events,  'B' flights for all early losers being the order of the day, with  'C flights for those events with  sufficient entries.

For a modest entry fee, a new  can of Mils (to be kept by the  winner of each match, the loser  getting the used one) there is the  promise of lots of action and an  opportunity for players of all  levels to test their skill and meet  other players from all over the  Sunshine Coast.

Many well known golfers  have their names in the record  books for a variety of golfing  feats, and we now have a probable candidate in the person of  Bill Dean. William hit not one,  but two mowing tractors on the  same hole. His tee shot on  number four nailed the first  one, and then, buoyed by that  feat, he thumped the second one  with his 'fairway' shot. So,  from now on if you see the tractor drivers scattering, it's a good  bet that Bill is somewhere  around, getting them in his  sights.  te Sechelt =-|  C    Public Library     J  Hours:  BTu'es.

Honourable Rita Johnston  Minister of Transportation  and Highways  Victoria, BC  Re: 'Freeedom to Move' on the  Sunshine Coast.  In February 1990, 1 returned  to this wonderful Sunshine  Coast.  Approximately 20 years ago,  there were two ferries providing  a very adequate service between  Langdale and Horseshoe Bay.  Today there is one ferry which  is unable to meet the minimum  requirements of an approximate  23,000 permanent residents, let  alone the tourists and temporary mill and pipeline  workers. The only reasonable  service one gets from the BC  Ferry Corporation is the personal attention from the  employees who are trying to  cope with this sinking system.  The ferry service between  Langdale and Horseshoe Bay is  unreliable and unacceptable.  Over the past seven weeks, the  ferny has been late more often  than on schedule! Held these  sailings left at the scheduled  time, it would have taken a total  of 1040 minutes, or 17.33  hours. However, due to the horrendous waits at the ferny tw-  minals, these sailings in fact  took 1458 minutes, or 24.3  hours. This is an appalling additional 418 minutes, or 6.97  hours.  My family and I are dependent on the transporation link  between Langdale and Horseshoe .Bay in order lhat we can  work, meet business, social and  medical needs in Vancouver.  Your public relations oflice  advises me "usage predictions  by the BC Ferries Corporation  has been underestimated and  nothing can be done until  1991". I am also advised that a  larger, slower ferry will take the  place of the Queen of Oak Bay,  and therefore I can expect to be  late for work a little more often  and can expeect even more  delays. This is not acceptable  and I suggest to you that the ferries corporation should give  their heads a good shake!  The Langdale/Horseshoe  Bay service requires two ferries  to run on an hourly basis and  considering the distance, 40  minutes is reasonable. This is  needed now!  As a taxpayer and user of this  ferry system, and a resident of  this western democratic world, I  expect your early resolution to  Ihis archaic ferry system in  order that I have the 'Freedom  to Move'.

The  general consensus of opinion  was that Sechelt has the look  and pollution of an industrial  town and has lost much of its  attraction to tourists. Our  visitors experienced the dust and  the noise as well as the visual  impact.  Unfortunately, many local  residents told our visitors that  the gravel pit and large scale  logging operation were on  Sechelt Indian Band land. My  research has shown that this is  not true.

Two  of these animals have been sent  to the Department of Agriculture Veterinary Lab in Abbotsford for examination.  Preliminary results indicate  the problem could be either  canine distemper or a parasitic  round worm infection. The  round worm parasite can cause  problems to humans so I am advising people not to encourage  these animals to come close to  houses.  Canine distemper can be  spread to your dog if it has not  been vaccinated. If you see a  raccoon in your back yard that  is acting lethargic or having  convulsions or just acting  strange, please call the District  Conservation Officer Doug  Pierce at 885-2004 or 885-3444.  Do not try to pick up these  animals under any circumstances.  This sickness is definitely  NOT rabies.  Doug Pierce  District Conservation Officer  Editor:  I'd like to commend St.  Mary's grounds staff for their  determined efforts to sprout  whatever it is they've planted on  the highway adjacent the  hospital lawns. But, with the  traffic and all, I don't think  even the regular watering will  bring success.  J. Marian  Wrapped  up well  Editor:  The Gibsons Winter Club  would like to thank all the  volunteers whe helped make the  Beachcombers Wrap Party a  memorable occasion, with a  special thanks to Ron Baba and  his crew on the barbecues.  Now is the time to encourage  your friends to come oul and  participate in the great sport of  curling.  Doreen Stewart  Facts?  I Editor:  At the luncheon sponsored by  the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce on August 16 our premier  made some comments which I  believe need clarification.  1. "BC is the only province  .villi a balanced budget." Fad:  The Auditor-General was very  critical of the bookkeeping used  to make this claim. Liberal use  is made of the appropriately  named B.S. Fund, which uses  'money' lhat' exists only on  paper to boost assets.  2. In order lo justify the appalling number of scandals in  his government Vander Zalm  states thai every group is entitled to make mistakes because no  one and nothing is perfect. This  is, of course, true. The aclions  of Lyall Hansen, Bill Reid, Bud  Smith, etc. and ud nuusettm  were not mistakes ��� they were  acts of dishonesty, corruption  and greed.  3. "...we have reduced the  civil service in BC from 46,000  lo 26,000." The intended implication: Thai the government  is saving taxpayers Ihe money  paid lo 20,000 people. However, as Vander Zalm well  knows, we are still paying ��� it's  just lhal workers who have been  privatized arc no longer considered government employees  (ie. Capilano Highway  Services).

Coast News, August 20,1990  Literary lights shine in Sechelt festival  Coatinued from page 1  winning books and stories ever  since.  Born in New York, Robinson  moved to Canada in the 70's  and currently lives in Vancouver. His books include  Callahan's Crosslime Saloon  (1977) and Stanbnce (1978).  Robinson collaborated with  his wife Jeanne on the latter  book and she appears with him  to read the prologue to  Staneed, the upcoming sequel.  Its far-out theme involves the  mutation of human beings into  symbiotic space-dwelling entities. Robinson reads a long  selection from the same work,  and then gives a humorous rundown of his career. 'Spider' is  now his legal name.  * * ea  Paul St. Rerre was the  Liberal Member of Parliament  for Coast Chilcotin from 1968  to 1972 but is better known for  his many books and stories  about that part of BC. His  books include Breaking Smith's  Quarter Horse (1966) and  Chilcotin and Beyond (1989).  St. Pierre was also scriptwriter for Cariboo Country, the  award-winning CBC TV series  that launched Chief Dan  George's acting career. Also a  newspaperman, he worked 30  years for the Vancouver Sun  and still writes a syndicated column for weekly newspapers.  Born in Chicago, Illinois in  1923, St. Pierre now divides his  time between family homes in  Langley and Mexico.  I am looking forward to  hearing St. Pierre read some  selections from his Chilcotin  stories. Unfortunately he  chooses to give a generalized  talk on writing that is more like  a college lecture. He also  displays a chauvinistic attitude  towards women writers. As with  Pierre Berton last year, I am  disappointed.  The day is rounded off by an  unexpected and thoroughly  spectacular display of celestial  pyrotechnics. It is one of the  most violent electrical storms I  or anyone else can remember  seeing on the Coast.  Theresa Jefferies, an elected  member of the Setchelt Band  Council. She reads a remarkably powerful set of poems  from her new book, including a  very clever piece using various  colours in a metaphorical way.  Her work is both street smart  and literate. We will lie hearing  much more of Ms Baker.  Along with Al Purdy and  Earle Birney, Irving Layton is a  charter member of Canada's  poetic old guard. He remains a  vital literary force. Layton was  born in Romania in 1912 and  came to Canada the following  year. He grew up in Montreal  where he still resides. Layton's  first important book was The  Improved Binoculars (I9S6).  His latest is A Wild Peculiar Joy  (1990). His sexual exploits and  outspoken opinions have kept  him in the public eye as much as  has his poetry.  Irving Layton looks pretty  chipper for a man of 78. He is  introduced by local poet, John  Pass. Layton has developed a  bit of a hearing problem in his  latter years but his feisly vitality remains undiminished. He  reads an eclectic selection of  poems in his inimitable style, including a moving piece about a  concentration camp survivor on  a Greek beach. Later, 1 have a  chat with the old maestro and  we exchange books.  Successful fiction writer, Sandra Birdsell, was born in Morris, Manitoba in 1942. She  began to write seriously after  her father's death in 1976,  becoming suddenly conscious of  her own mortality. In 1982 she  was awarded the Robert  Kroetsch Scholarship by the  Saskatchewan Arts Board.  Ms Birdsell went on to produce such books as Nighl  Travellers (1982) and The Missing Child (1989), winner of the  W.H. Smith/Books of Canada  First Novel Award. She has also  worked as a script writer and  production assistant for the  NFB. She now makes her home  in Winnipeg where she is working on another novel.  One of the most delightful  surprises of the Festival is  Native poet Marie Annharte  Baker. Born in Winnipeg in  1942 to an Irish father and a  Salteaux-Ojibway mother, she  studied English literature at  Brandon College, then moved  on to Simon Fraser and UBC.  Working in Minneapolis as a  community family worker in the  late 60's and early 70's, she  gained a firsthand knowledge of  street people. She has appeared  in numerous women's journals  and her first volume of poetry  Being On The Moon was  published by Polestar in the  spring.  Ms   Baker   now   lives   in  Regina,   Saskatchewan   where  she is a founding member of the  Aboriginal Writers' Group.  Ms Baker is introduced by  Sandra Birdsell, an attractive  blonde, is introduced by Lillia  D'acres, longtime Festival participant. She reads excerpts  from her novel in a clear voice  and reads them well. Ms Bird-  sell is deserving of her reputation. Her writing is strange and  imaginative.  Peter C, Newman has been  called Canada's premier journalist, and he has earned the title with a series of highly-  popular books. He was born in  Vienna, came to Canada at the  age of 11, and attended Upper  Canada College, the Univeristy  of Toronto and McGill, earning  a Master's Degree in Economics.  He was editor-in-chief of  Macleans for nine years and,  from 1981 to 1987, conducted a  weekly interview show for  Global TV. His 11 books include Flame of Power (1959),  lHAPPY HOLIDAYS MOTORHOME!

Newman has sold over  two million books and won  many awards.  Peter Newman has own chosen to kick off the first annual  Bruce Hutchison lecture. He is  introduced by Ray Williston,  retired BC Minister of Lands  and Forests. Wearing a jaunty  cap, Newman gives an amusing  talk centering around Ihe Sun's  Writer Emeritus.  He gels off some good one-  liners and keeps the large crowd  entertained.  1 first met Robert Kroetsch at  the University of Manitoba in  1979 and it is good to see him  again. A novelist, poet and  essayist, he was born and  educated in Alberta, spent  several years in the Canadian  north, ihen wenl to the US and  taught English at the University  of New York, returning to  Canada in 1978.  He has published seven  novels. One, The Studhorse  Man, won the Governor General's Award in 1969. Bob has  also published three books of  poetry and, in 1989, a collection  of essays ��� The Lovely  Treacher of Words. He now  makes his home in Victoria and  divides his time between there  and the University of Manitoba,  where he teaches.  Bob Kroetsch is introduced  by Harbour Publishing's Howard White who describes him  as one of ihe nicest people in the  business, an opinion I concur  with. He gives a sprightly,  good-humoured reading mostly  of poetry but including one  strong prose selection. In between, he talks amusingly of his  travels and describes a Poet's  Festival in Baghdad ��� "I doubt  if they'll be having one there  this year," he comments.  Native poel Marie Annharte-Baker won over Ihe crowd at the  Festival of the Written Ails with her lively, humorous poems.   ���Km) Mill a photo  This is the last event I was  able to attend, but I can't conclude this piece without mentioning that estimable and very  witty fellow, Arthur Black.  I unfortunately missed his initial performance, but was able  to talk with him at length over  the weekend. Arthur is quite  simply one hell of a nice guy.  I've been a fan of his radio  show since its inception, and we  found we shared a lot of common interests.  But that's what these  Festivals axe all about ��� a  chance to meet kindred souls,  expressing themselves through  the diverse majesty of the written word.

Coast News, August 20,1990  Sechelt Council  Block seven debate lurches on  by Jeff Carpmlcr  At the August 17 Sechell  council meeting, Alderman  Doug Reid made a motion to set  up a procedure for senior staff  to access the "imperative costs"  to Sechelt residents over the  7%  next few years and make a  report to council Iwfore information meetings on the Block 7  referenda votings.  "That (proceess) is exactly  whal is going on," Mayor  Meredith informed Reid.

Alderman Shanks, obviously  exasperated, said he didn't  know why they had the motion  in front of therm.  "We might as well dispense  with Block 7 committee meetings altogether, if we have  notice of motions taking their  place," Shanks despaired.  Alderman Wilson said that  all items for Ihe referenda have  been taken care of but there is  still a big question mark regarding actual costs of other big  cost items like roads, sewers,  policing.  Administrator Shanks jumped in, saying, "It's as close an  estimate as we can gel."  "I can't understand why  sewer is on there al all," Wilson  said, "Davis Bay won't get it  for two years."  Alderman Kolibas wanted lo  know exactly what sewers,  roads and policing cost items  had to do with Block 7.  "lt goes back to discussions  we had on important cost items  a while back," Alderman Reid  replied, "It was when we (referring to himself and Mayor  Meredith) were actually in  agreement on the business of  upcoming costs."  "Because of the costs for  policing, sewers and the roads  coming up, there was a possibility the development around  Block 7 and the Aquatic Centre  was in trouble because of the  other costs," Reid said.  "Administrator Shanks said  that the costs appearing on the  referenda, could apply to  everyone, whether they live in  the municipality or not, or to no  one, at least at this point.  After Reid's motion was  soundly defeated, he said he  would write a "letter to the  editor". This jab was an obvious reference to Alderman  Shanks' recent letter proclaiming that the media was being  manipulated on the Block 7  issue.  "It's not a laughing matter,"  Shanks said.  "Sure it is," said keid,  laughihg. ,   j  "You've laughed for thi last  time," Shanks muttered,,  With the issue of "media  manipulation" out in the open,  Alderman Kolibas brought up  the topic of council policy  regarding newspapers.  She said she found Shanks'  letter writing upsetting.  "If I don't get my way," she  said, "1 won't put it in Ihe  papers." Her implied criticism  of Shanks' tactics drew an immediate reply from the alderman.  "Shanks defended his actions  as simply giving out needed information to the public!" adding thai, "The building committee was not up front. There  was no merdia attention ���  nobody asked me, as Chairman  of the Block 7 Committee, for  my input."  Speaking with the Coast  News the next afternoon, Alderman Reid clarified his position  regarding his Block 7 Motion of  the previous night.  "Staff has to take the time it  needs to do this right. The council can't just blue-sky this."  "We should set up a more or  less formal procedure whereby  senior staff would come up with  the facts and figures on the upcoming costs, then make a brief  written report lo council with  the best estimates," Reid  asserted.  "They would find the dollars  per thousand of assessed value  of real property ��� what we used to call the mil rate. The  Aquatic Centre would cost  about SI .95 per thousand, so if  you had a $100,000 house il  would cost you $195," Reid  said.  "Council would review these  numbers that senior staff had  arrived at and include them in  the info sheets for the public  before the referenda voting in  late September," Reid explained.  In an interview with the  Coasl News Friday, Alderman  Shanks said he objects to  Reid's motion to include other  high cost items (sewer, roads,  policing) on the referenda  because it was redundant.  "We've discussed all this at  the Block 7 committee meetings. He (Reid) is at the  meetings and that would be the  time to give input rather than  bring up notices of motion at  council meetings," Shanks said.
