May 13, 1980  Volume 34, Number 19  In U I C office  Chained protest brings prompt results  Paula Linden of Sechelt displays part of the chain she used to tie herself to the bench at  the employment office. She also took the bed and supplies with her and was prepared  for a long stay.  Marsh Society petition  Sechelt Council  by Ian Corrance  On Monday afternoon, May  Sth, a mother of three chained  herself to the job desk at the  Sechelt Employment Centre.  Paula Linden of Sechelt  became so frustrated in her  dealings with thc Employment  Centre that she appeared at the  office at 2:30 p.m. armed with a  foam sleeping pad, a thermos  of coffee, and sandwiches. She  chained and padlocked herself  to the bench and refused to  leave until she received her  overdue medical benefits.  For the bulk ofthe past four  years, Paula has been supporting her family, often working in  two jobs. On January of this  year she had to stop working  due to a disc problem in her  back. Afteradoctor'sexamina-  tion which verified her ailment,  she applied for medical benefits.  Upon application, she was  informed that there would be a  two-week waiting period. A  month later she enquired about  her payments. The receptionist  at the Sechelt office phoned  Vancouver and was told Paula  was on the pay-out list and  would be receiving a cheque  within ten days.  On April6th the mail from  Vancouver arrived, but did not  contain cheques, but instead  more application cards and  medical forms were enclosed.  During this time, Paula went  to  the  Welfare  department,  asking if they could intervene  on her behalf. This brought no  results.  Another application form  was received, dated April 20.  In the form it stated lhat unless  it were filled out by March 7,  benefits would be cut off. Tom  Nishimura, Ihe local administrator, assured her that this  must be a computer error and  the forms were returned.  There was no further communication from thc Vancouver office until May when  Paula received another letter  asking for further doctor's re  ports, at this point she decided  that things had gone far  enough and she staged her  demonstration at the Sechelt  Manpower Office.  While she was chained to the  bench, Tom Nishimura phoned  Vancouver explaining the situation and asked for the status  of Ms. Linden's claim. Thc  Vancouver office gave assurances that cheques had been  processed and were on their  way.  At 4:30 p.m ihe RCMP  arrived, having first obtained a  set of chain cutters from thc  Mcl.eod's Hardware store  across the road and cut her free.  Before leaving for thc police  station, Ms. Linden stated that  she would return Ihe next day if  she had not received any  assisiance. After a sliort reconsideration, she decided that she  would give them a week and  then return, but this time with  boom chains.  Al the police siation.shcwas  advised lhat a repeat performance could result in a possible  trespassing charge.  On Wednesday two benefit  cheques arrived by mail, she  received additional cheques on  Thursday and Friday. Thc  claim is now up-to-date and  cheques should be arriving  regularly.  Thc explanation from the  Vancouver office was thai the  woman who was handling Ms.  Linden's case had been on  holidays and had just recently  returned.  A delegation from the Marsh  Society attended the regular  meeting of Sechelt Council last  Wednesday. Ex-village planner  Doug Roy acted as spokesman  for the Society and asked  Council to consider preserving  the head of Porpoise Bay as a  natural wildlife feeding area.  It was pointed out that this  was not a new request. In 1978  the same proposal had come  before Council. At that time  several interested and conflicting groups had voiced their  opinions, but there hud been no  cohesive committee and the  matter had been allowed to  slide.  In rejuvenating the propsal,  Roy asked that an economic  and biological study be made of  the area, as per the guidelines in  the Community Plan.  Alderman Hall felt that as a  property owner in the area, he  should excuse himself from any  discussion. Before leaving the  council chambers temporarily,  he mentioned that since he had  moved into the A-frame adjacent lo the marsh, his views on  what he had previously called  the smelly mud at the bay head  had softened and he was  beginning to find the area  interesting.  Alderman Stelck felt that the  biological study should include  all, if any, effects the present  development in the area had  had on the wildlife patterns. He  asked that Mayor Boucher pass  the gavel in order that he might  express his opinions. The  mayor stated that after reading  the report in detail he was  impressed by the concern  shown towards wildlife, but he  would like lo see an equal  amount of concern shown for  thc children. As an example, he  pointed out lhat there was no  decent place for them to swim  and a beach at Ihe head ofthe  bay could provide this.  This stand was refuted by  Marsh Society member Ms.  Steele, who pointed out that  her younger relatives habitually swam in the ocean at Trail  Bay. She added that on any  gisen day children could be  seen enjoying the marsh.  Joyce Kolibas put a motion  on the floor suggesting that  Council as whole���minus Alderman Hall���act as a select  committee to talk to all interested groups. The motion was  carried. The formation of this  select committee would enable  Alderman Hall to provide  input as a property holder.  Beverly Northway from the  SPCA petitioned Council,  asking that there be more  emphasis put on dog control in  Sechelt and the surrounding  area. She has been receiving  numerous reports of dogfights  in the school yard at the  elementary school in West  Sechelt and recently a child was  bitten at Sechelt Elementary.  Under the present system, the  dog catcher is unable to answer  all the complaints in the time  allotted and she asked that  Council meet with Vancouver  SPCA officer Mr. Kicket when  he comes in July. The mayor  instructed the Clerk to write to  Kicket inviting him to attend a  Council meeting to discuss the  problem and possible solutions. Northway asked that in  the meantime Council look  into including the West Sechelt  Elementary School in the dog  catcher's rounds.  A request was forwarded  from the Timber Days Committee asking for permission to  hold a motorcycle enduro race.  Council granted the request,  providing that the committee  carry the liability. This problem of liability came up again  when the annual request to  erect a gospel tent in Hackett  Park was presented. Permission was granted after Alderman Stelck suggested that  Council make it a policy that  groups wishing to carry out  their activities within the  Village boundaries assume the  responsibility for any liability.  A letter was recived from  Croft Construction asking  Council to consider using Lot  7, block P on D.L 303 for the  joint use facility building. The  land is situated behind the  Sechelt Building Supply. The  matter was referred to the Joint  Use Facility Committee.  Parking continues to be a  problem with ovcrparking at  the Elementary School. As yet  Council's letter to the School  Board requesting that they  meet to discuss the bottleneck  has not been answered. It was  explained that thc reason for  this was that Roy Mills has  been on holiday and now that  has returned, the matter would  be given consideration. It was  decided once again that the  School Board should be given  another two weeks to reply.  Zoning bylaw 214 was presented for scrutiny. This bylaw  affects the land north of Ripple Way arc cast of DL 1472.  Before adoption it will go to a  public meeting.  Arne Pettersen, the president  of the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce, wrote  Council asking that they support the Chamber in urging the  Regional Board to appoint  a commission for economic development. Council members  felt they should examine the  guideline pamphlet before  giving support.  Alderman Hall reminded  Council that Pebble holdings  had not as yet tidied up their  property underneath the power  line. Clerk Shanks said that he  had been contacted by surrounding residents and they  were willing to seed the area  with grass if the property were  levelled,  Mr. Harry Lomax presented  Council with a petition asking  that a boat-launching ramp be  built on the Trail Bay foreshore. He pointed out the need  for a launching facility in this  area by stating that his figures  indicate that 46% of th/s  residents in the Sechelt vicinity  are boat owners. This, plus the  fact that there was no safe way  to launch a boat in foul  weather, making rescue attempts difficult in the event of a  marine accident. The mayor  agreed that a ramp should be a  priority, as there was virtually  no place to launch a trailcred  boat between Gibsons and  north of Sechelt. Parks and  Recreation chairman Hall  asked Council's approval to  allocate up to maximum of  $3,000 to make a study of the  foreshore for a suitable piece of  shoreline close to an area with  adequate parking. This was  granted.  -     ������������l,,i,!.l  Ferries indecisive  A copy ol a memorandum from B.C. Ferries Corporation  Communications Manager Bill Bouchard, issued in reply to the  minutes of the March 19th meeting of ihe Ferry Advisory  Committee, was received by Gibsons Council at Tuesday's  Council meeting.  The memorandum reiterates the Corporations's position on  the matter of ferry schedules, noting that "comments concerning  ferry schedules are always going to be prominent," to the effect  that the 0730 hours sailing will remain in place for the summer,  but it is not planned for this sailing to continue year-round.  The memorandum indicates that the Catering Manager will be  looking into Ihe possibility of a baby change room on thc Ferries  and may attend Ihe next meeting ofthe Advisory Committee to  discuss food services.  Decisions concerning possible increases in ferry rates, and the  loss of commuter cards and special fares faced by residents of the  Sunshine Coast, have still not been resolved by thc Cabinet  though the memorandum states, "We are expecting decisions at  any time."  Alderman Larry Trainor, Gibsons representative on the Ferry  Advisory Committee, suggested that further commeni on thc  subject of ferry scheduling and services should be submilled lo  Area F Director David Hunter of the S.C.R.D. who represents the  Regional Board and chairs the Ferry Advisory Committee.  Gambier Mine  One of the attractions at Timber Days will be parachutist Gerry Hallmark from the U.S.  Coast Guard station at Port Angeles. Gerry will be performing airobatic stunts before  landing in Hackett Park at approximately 1 p.m. on Monday. Piloting the Cessna 180  will be Bill Thompson from Garden Bay. Be sure to bring your binoculars for viewing  the mid-air stunts. Gerry will be on hand to answer questions after his jump.  Davis Bay students entertain  The School Board's May  Educational meeting took  place at Davis Bay with a  capacity audience of parents  and siblings squeezing into  the Kindergarten room to enjoy the primary grades choir  and songs from the Kindergarten; a playlet about the  Sasquatch from the Grade 3  reader and Robert Service's  poem The Shooting of Dan  McGrew recited by Grade 5  student, Garth Frizzell.  This is the time for the annual report to the Board of  the Learning Assistance  programs in the District co-ordinated by Ed Nicholson and  seven special teachers who  work both as a team within the  District and in their separate  schools with teachers, parents, aides and tutors. The  function of the Learning Assistance teacher is to help identify and meet the individual  needs of children who, for a  variety of reasons, may find it  difficult to function in a normal classroom setting; and to  help the child develop skills  and abilities to become independent of assistance. This  may include special programmes to meet the unique  needs of a child, and will include consultation with parents, teachers, counsellors  and  sometimes the  medical  profession. Additionally the  L.A. teacher will conduct  diagnostic assessment and  testing to identify as early as  possible children with potential problems, as well as the  assessment of cognitive ability  and achievement, for correct  placing within the school.  It should be understood that  children who require help are  not necessarily slow learners.  They often are children with  average and above average  ability.  Helping the L.A. teachers are  a number of adults from the  community who tutor children  in small groups or on a one-to-  one basis, and some High  School and Grade 6 and 7 students. The children develop a  very close relationship and  good rapport with their tutors  and students and adults find it  a rewarding experience.  Reports were given to the  Board by David Short from  Chatelech, Mrs. Joan Aelbers  from Gibsons, Ms. Virginia  Douglas from Elphinstone,  Mrs. Barbara Enns from  Sechelt and Joe Brooks from  Pender Harbour.  Pertinent questions were  asked by members of the  board, Trustee Clayton wanting to know if the L.A. teachers had thc time to devote to  the enrichment of program  mes for gifted children. Trustee Lloyd was concerned that  there would seem to be a need  for additional help and suggested greater involvement be  encouraged by people in the  community with valuable  skills and knowledge.  Trustee Clayton was also concerned that with all our concern for children to be able to  be literate in reading and writing, we are doing little if anything to ensure that they arc  able to evaluate what they see  and hear���a skill of equal importance as so much communication is visual and aural.  Church  opposition  by Fred Cruice  Following Sunday morning's United Church service,  the congregation of about  forty persons passed a motion  signifying congregational  opposition to a proposed liquor licence in the area close  to the church.  This license is sought by Ritz  Motel owners who are proposing to open a larger hotel on the  present site of the Rit/ Motel  and adjacent property.  One vote in opposition was  based    on     a    technicality.  Trustee Hodgins, while understanding the need for diagnostic testing, emphasized the  very real danger that a child's  whole school life may be ad-  versly affected by the results  and that teachers may not  expect enough of him if, for  some reason he wasn't doing  well in the tests.  The Islands Trust will hold a  public information meeting on  the subject of metal exploration on the Island at 8 p.m.  Monday, May 26th, in the  Devon Room of Vancouver's  Devonshire Hotel. The possibility of mining development  on the Island will also be  among topics on the agenda of  a special meeting for West  Howe Sound (area F) residents to he held this Saturday  at 8 p.m. at Langdale Elementary School.  Islands Trust Chairman John  Rich will meet with Attorney-  General Allan Williams to clarify the legal aspects of the  Ministry of the Environment's  decision to permit continued  metal exploration on the Island in spite of thc Islands  Trust Act, An exact date for  the meeting has not been set.  In addition to his open letter  v\  to the Premier of British Columbia, which appears in the  Letters to the Editor column of  this week's paper,MLA for  Mackenzie, Don Lockstead  told the Coast News he has  raised the question of mining  dew upment on the Island  three limes in the legislature  and received no reply from the  government.  "1 intend to continue to pursue this matter, on behalf of  the residents of Gambier  Island", Lockstead said, "and  if necessary to debate it at  length during debate on the  spending estimates of the  Ministries concerned."

Canadians are suddenly waking up to the  fact that there is a very real danger of their  country coming apart at the seams and the  Quebec Referendum is a focal point for  their sudden concern about Canada's  future. Such concern though somewhat  belated in arrival and still in a nascent and  unsophisticated stage of its development is  a welcome phenomenon.  For what it is worth, it is the opinion  here that the Non forces led by Claude  Ryan will emerge victorious in the May  20th vote, possibly the rejection of Rene  Lcvesque, however, will be followed by the  re-election of Levesque as premier of the  province shortly thereafter as the cagy  Quebecers hedge their bets in traditional  fashion by electing different parties to  power federally and provincially.  The rejection which will probably gieet  Levesque's referendum on May 20 will not  be of Levesque as premier, but rather the  gut reaction of what is still a conservative  population against what is after all a very  radical departure.  The real work that must be done if  Canada is to survive will be done after the  Quebec Referendum has been defeated.  The premiers and the prime minister of this  country will have to sit down and reorganize the structure of this country, an  exercise long overdue. Included in those  negotiations will be Pierre Eliot Trudeau,  definitely intransigent on Ihe subject of  decentralization, an equally intransigent  Peter Loughccd of Alberta who seems  quite prepared to dismember the country  single handedly without any aid from thc  prickly M. Levesque who will, we feel, also  be in attendance.  This is a country which has been built on  a dream and the ability to compromise. We  do not see in any of the leaders presently in  command much that can be called  visionary but we trust that the ability to  compromise is still lurking in the Canadian  breast. With disenchantment with the  confederation as it now stands at least as  virulent in Western Canada as it is in the  province of Quebec, real changes are going  to have to be made and the diametrically  opposed positions of Alberta and Ontario,  to use just one example, will not render the  work to be done on the new constitution  easy.  What it comes down to in the end is that  there is a very real possibility that the  country which is Canada will be no more  before we are halfway through this present  decade even although the forces of  separation will in all likelihood be beaten  back in Quebec on May 20. If there is any  relaxation after the referendum date in the  efforts to be made to keep the country  together or if the Canadian genius for  compromise deserts us, all could well be  lost. That would be the final tragic irony in  this century which Wilfred Laurier said  would belong to Canada.  Apologies and a suggestion  Apologies are in order this week to the  Inglis family of Gibsons. A reference  Maryanne West's column to the Inglis  Trail unfortunately was proofread by  someone new to the area and the pioneer  name was mis-spelled. Another error in the  same piece saw the Charman property  referred to as the Chapman property.  Apologies also to Maryanne whose  mistakes these were not.  On the subject of pioneers and names,  we would add our support for the  suggestion contained in a letter to the  editor this week for the naming of an  unnamed road in Roberts Creek after  veteran writer Hubert Evans of that  community. Mr. Evans marked his eighty-  eighth birthday last week and this would  seem to be as appropriate a time as any for  him to be recognized by the area he has  graced with his presence for many, many  years.  The writer, D.L. Wright suggests that  other Roberts Creek residents might lend  their voices in support of this suggestion  and we would welcome an indication from  the community in support ofthe idea in the  pages of this newspaper.  Blessed are the peacemakers  At no time since perhaps the Korean  War has the possibility of nuclear  holocaust seemed more possible than it  does today. The United States of America  is being run at the present time by a  hardline group which headed by Carter's  advisor with Ihe unpronounceable Polish  name Zbigniew Brzezinski. This same  gentleman is the man who while at  Harvard conceived the idea of an  international group of prominent industrialists to be called the Trilateral  Commission and whose purpose is to  retain and perpetuate the awesome power  and wealth they have accumulated. The  idea was seized and instituted by David  Rockefeller and Carter himself is an ex-  member of the organization.  Let us remember that it was David  Rockefeller and cohorts who pressured  President Carter into inviting the Shah of  Iran into the United States in the first  place, thereby precipitating the hostage  crisis. It was again the advice of Brzezinski  that Carter followed in the recent aborted  rescue attempt and the resignation of  Cyrus Vance as Secretary of State is an  indication that Brzezinski has (he  President's ear, not perhaps surprising in  the light of their association on the  Trilateral Commission.  We may take as much comfort as we can  from Christ's teaching "Blessed are the  peacemakers, for they shall inherit the  earth," but it is apparent that they are not  now in control of events.  %  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  ementber  &  ��  FIVE YEARS AGO  Alderman Denis Shuttleworth of  Sechelt is to travel to Victoria to  promote a comination arboretum and a  bauhaus for the Sechelt Vicinity.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >  George Matthews  1 have decided thai 1 have  reached thai time of life when it  becomes imperative to devote  some attention to my physical  being. I am moved to these  reflections in the aftermath of  what must surely be about my  one millionth hangover.  My dear, departed sister  Marv initialed my drinking  careei during a visit to her��  home in Lincolnshire during  my fifteenth year. 1 Had been  regular visitor to her house in  the picturesque village of Old  Somerby since she had moved  there some four years earlier. It  was a lovely rural English place  of quaint neighbouring villages  with names like Boothby  Pagnell and Ropsley The buses  were blue and green and  operated by two different  companies. The green buses  were operated by the Lincolnshire Motor Company and the  blue buses were operated by a  firm called Reliance Coaches.  Reliance were a half-penny  more expensive and their buses  were old and run-down but  with a decaying elegance and  comfort thai the functional  modernity of thc green buses  could not match.  Nor was it the interior  furnishings alone which made  me prefer the Reliance buses.  There's the name for one thing.  There's something warm and  reassuring about Reliance  Coaches as a name I'm afraid  the Lincolnshire Motor Company had a uniformed, militaristic ring to it. The drivers ofthe  green buses were bored and  uniformed and sat in a glass cab  by themselves separated from  the passengers whilst the  Reliance Coaches drivers were  rumpled and casual and friendly, took the tickets and gave  change and carried on a witty  banter and general conversation with the entire bus.  Then, of course, there were  the colours. The blue and white  Reliance Coaches matched the  colours of my favourite soccer  team, the Glasgow Rangers.  . The green and while, on the  other hand, were the colours of  the hated rivals, the Glasgow  Celtics, so all in all the Reliance  Coaches were my clear favourites and if possible I always  wangled my comings and  goings on them.  I found Old Somerby to be a  place of great charm. The  weather was much drier and  warmer than thc weather in  Scotland and the warm dry  days lured one out about the  woods and hedgerows on a  blitz of exploration and deight.  Then, too, there were the  companions: bluff English lads  with whom 1 played cricket on  the green and explored the  nests   of wood   pigeons  and  played cowboys and Indians  with the hay-shed for a fort or  livery stable or saloon or jail  cell as the occasion arose.  Lincolnshire grows stout contented men, hearty, beefy  fellows with pleasant dispositions and the beefy, outgoing,  friendly boys were kind to the  strange, fierce, skinny little  Scotsman who moved among  them.  As well as buses and boys  there were the Sunday cricket  matches between the villages  when even the Squire would  don pads and take his portly,  balding, cheerful way to the  wicket. It was a timeless place  of rural yeomen where the  countrymen in 1950 lived very  much as countrymen had lived  there for several hundred years.  There was the old roofer with  whom 1 worked one splendid  summer. He had been gassed  in the First World War and his  voice was a throaty rasp to  which 1 listened spellbound  during the breaks from work as  he recounted stories of that  dreadful conflict into my eager  youthful cars.  There were the marathon  table tennis tournaments in  Alan's workshop, Alan being  my sister's husband. After  work and dinner he would set  up the table and there was  unlimited space to leap and  lean and play with a fierce and  friendly determination. To this  day I am convinced that the  world has a great lack of perfect  places to play table tennis.  Alan's workshop was such a  place.  Generations of swallows had  built their nests high in the  rafters in one corner ofthe high  wooden shed and a window  was always partially open to  allow them to swoop in with  provender for their clamourous  young.  One summer, I think I must  have been that magical and  perfect age of twelve because  my father was still alive, we  took an evening walk along the  highway to the Crossroads then  a couple of miles along the road  that led to the sea, and then by a  leafy path through some lovely  beechwoods to the Ropsley  road and so back to Somerby. 1  walked it with the adults  listening to their talk and  watching out for birds and  rabbits and being told how  Dick Turpin rode his horse for  some reason not recorded in  the tale up the steps of a pub we  passed along the road.  1 did decide somewhat crossly that only grownups would be  so silly as to walk so much on  the highway where you had to  have your day-dreaming interrupted by the harsh reality of  close passing traffic. A car  would come by every half an  hour or so. So as a walk it was  not a favourite but I saw it as a  course to run around. I announced my intention at dinnertime and asked the assembled family how long they  thought it would take me.  Eyebrows were lifted when my  father thought it would take  about forty-five minutes but 1  made it round in thirty-nine  minutes and he was easily the  closest.  It was in Old Somerby  during the last short visit  before I left for Canada  my sister who was allowed out  of hospital for the occasion,  started me off on what has been  a rather over-active drinking  career because, as she later  explained, she was going to  miss so much of my growing up  when I went to Canada that she  did want to see mc get drunk  for the first lime. Drunk I got.  but more of that and my newfound determination to devote  some attention to physical well-  being anon.  :<������������  The biggest tourist attraction  in the lower mainland last  week was, ot all things, the  B.C. Penitentiary. The old  Pen, built over 100 years ago  is now out of business and the  authorities opened it up for a  week and gave tours. The first  weekend saw more than 6000  visitors. I didn't go to see it,  but I admit to a certain morbid  curiosity concerning the place.  For years, as a kid, whenever  I drove by with my parents,  one of them would say something like, "Shall we leave you  here?" or "How would you like  to stay there for a few weeks?"  To this day, whenever I drive  my own kids past the Pen, I  say much the same thing to  them. As a terrifying symbol  of the power of the law, it sure  discouraged me from J-walk-  ing or pinching apples when I  was young.  The Pen opening received a  great deal of media coverage.  Pictures and vivid descriptions  were seen in the press, the  radio featured interviews with  visitors describing prison conditions. Most of the people  interviewed were pretty disgusted while some said conditions were too good for the  likes ofthe criminals who were  kept there.  Like most people, the ideas  of being locked up in a 9'x 6'  cell for several years is a very  frightening thought and while  listening to the comments of  the visitors on the radio. I  couldn't help thinking about  the time I almost got thrown in  jail. Now this might come as a  surprise to some of you, while  others won't be amazed at all,  but yes 1, your humble and  honest correspondent, came  near enough to thc slammer to  remind me just how tenuous  our freedom can be.

The sage looked upon me with admiration.  *!  Stephen Crane  ended up in prison just the  same. And this wasn't just  your average North American  prison either, the place 1 could  have found myself in would  make the B.C. Pen look like  the London Hilton.  I won't bore you with the  details but a few years ago my.  wife and I met a young fellow  on a boat between Alexandria,  Egypt and Beirut, Lebanon.  He was a handsome and  charming young Frenchman  from Marseilles who was taking his car to the Middle East  for a vacation. We passed the  time pleasantly and when we  arrived in Beruit, he offered  us a ride to a hotel. We stayed  around the pier until his car  had been carefully removed  from the ship and passed  through customs, then he|  drove us to a little hotel in the  town. He and an Englishman,  travelling with us decided it  would be cheaper if we all  shared a hotel suite and so  aftei a brief discussion we all,  goi rooms together.  We ;oured Beirut and stayed,  about a week in the hotel  before my wife and I decided"  to hitchhike to Damascus,, in  Syria. We left our two friends  and said we hoped we'd see.  them again soon, and went on  our way into Syria. About, a  week later we got word that  the young Frenchman had  been arrested the day after we  left Beruit. It seems the seats  and door panels of his car had,  been stuffed with weapons he  hoped to sell in Lebanon on  the occasion of the national  elections. We had been with,  him at the pier while he waited,  for his car, we had stayed with.  hint in Beruit; as much as 1  would like to think we would  have been questioned and released, I have a strong feeling  wc would have been sent  straight to prison.  As it turned out, our  companion was sentenced to  seven years and fined 25,ooo  francs. In Lebanon, the prisons aren't as civilzed as here,  he would have had to buy his  own food and keep himself la-  live while sharing a cell with  God knows what kind of criminals.  That all happened a long time  ago and near enough to just  how I explained it.

Won't be long now Marge, looks like they found the camera  Letters to the Editor  The proposed Beachcomber Hotel  Editor:  With the recent publicity in  the press concerning the intent  and purpose of the public  meeting held on April 28, it  becomes necessary to further  publicize a deeper interpretation of some of the stated  facts and some ofthe assumed  conclusions that were reached  regarding the project.  The press has reported that  Mr. Jon McRae told them that  "most people went away from  the meeting satisfied, once it  was explained the hotel didn't  plan on a pub, but a lounge"���  "most were convinced this was  the way to go."  A group of citizens, who are  concerned with the healthy  revitalization of the lower  Village of Gibsons applaud  business ventures that will  contribute to this end. It was  sad to hear at village council a  reference to a visitor's remark  that the area looked "tacky."  We respectfully ask the  residents of Gibsons to consider our assessment of the  proposal and its influence on  our life style and the social  health ofthe community unless  standards arc upheld apart  from concrete, iumber and  glass.  The thrust of the objections  at the meeting concerned the  liquor licence and we feel that  the matter, because it was not  the subject for which the  meeting was convened to  discuss, was dismissed too  easily. Many have had second  thoughts and have admitted to  not being very knowledgeable  about liquor licences.  We would ask you to consider the following:  ON THE POSITIVE SIDE  1. A modern aesthetically  designed hotel in a i area that  may influence the renovation  or replacement of existing older  structures and promote better  land use.  2. Such a hotel would he  compatible with the proposed  public marina...particularly,  should the proponents provide  the vacation package service  with self-contained suites as  touted at the meeting.  3. The project will piovide  employment during and after  construction.  ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE  A play on words can be used  to explain the confusion that  can enter a discussion. May we  in all fairness, considering the  recent announcement of the  over-burdened RCMP that  they are going to crack down  on drinking in undesignated  public places and their recognition of the drinking related  social problems in Gibsons and  area, mav we explain briefly thc  LIQUOR LICENSING CLASSIFICATIONS in simple  terms?  A CLASS "A" licence  permits the sale and  consumption of all types of  liquor. An example would be  an existing hotel on 101.  A CLASS"B" licence permits  thc consumption of liquor  when purchased in conjunction  with a meal in a dining lounge,  such as some of our typical  restaurants. There are other  classifications such as a Class  "D" Neighborhood Pub (e.g.  The Cedars Inn) and a Marine  Pub classification (e.g.  Gramma's Pub). These two  latter classifications are not  related to our concern as they  are located in a solid core of  commercial development and  the noise element at closing  time becomes fractional  though sometimes objectionable when dispersed  through neighboring residential areas.  1. The proponents of thc  project decried the use of the  term "beer parlor" by an  enquirer at the public meeting  and stated that the liquor  dispensing facility would be a  lounge.  2. A rose by any other name  smells as sweet, and conversely  a CLASS "A" liquor licence  permits thc facility to be a "beer  parlor"���"watering hole"���  "pub" (from the English term  Public House)���but also  contains thc privilege to serve  liquor with meals. (The  foregoing synonyms arc not  derogatory, but are in common  use.)  3. This village has seen the ever  increasing use of alcoholic  beverages in open public areas  not permitted by law, to the  ever increasing annoyance of  the residents. A take-out sale of  beer at closing time directly  adjacent to residences on all  four   sides    will   further  aggravate this problem.  4. Night time traffic will be  increased through what is very  predominantly a senior citizen  residential neighborhood. The  driving habits associated with  overindulgence will create  disturbances which constitute  an invasion of the resident's  privacy.  This CONCERNED CITIZEN'S GROUP does not  necessarily represent the Carrie  Nations (teetotallers) of  Gibsons but believes in  freedom of activity as long as  one does not spoil another  person's peaceful existence. A  fine wine or a cool lager may  enhance an excellent meal. We  are however, of the opinion  that the granting of a Class  "A" Liquor Licence to this  hotel will very much add to the  social and traffic problems that  now unfortunately exist in our  general area.  We endorse the concept of a  hotel but we ask that thc liquor  licence be a Class "B" which is  for a dining lounge. We feel  that the proponents as astute  businessmen could make the  operation viable under this  condition without the residents  of the lower village sacrificing  their life style in the name of  progress. If, however, on the  off chance that this is a  development program, based  on the well known historical  fact that hotels, once built and  given full sale and consumption  liquor licensing, become very  attractive saleable assets & the  common knowledge that such  enterprises can become  divisible i.e. liquor dispensing  businesses can be sold apart  from the main enterprise, then  this would destroy any image  we many have of what is good  for Gibsons.

Dear Mr. Almond,  I have just bought property  on a new cul-de-sac off Beach  Avenue, Robert's Creek and  plan to build my home there. I  have lived in Robert's Creek  for five years, so am not a  complete new-comer to the  area.  This cul-de-sac appears to be  unnamed at present. Therefore I would like to most  strongly recommend the name  "Hubert Evans Road" suggested to me by my cousin,  D.M. Richardson.  We feel that Mr.  Evans,  having been a much loved and  respected member of this  community for many years,  should have some permanent  recognition. While this road  in question is a little more  than a mile from his home, it  is in Robert's Creek and thus  should qualify for such an  honour.  Sincerely yours,  D.L.

Some hours  later, Jen calls from downstairs  that I have visitors. It proves to  be Mrs. Pressford's two younger daughters. "Mother found  her watch" says one of them.  "She's really very sorry about  the whole thing and we'd all  like you to come back."  I realize that 1 have been  overreacting myself.

"You'll have to  forgive me" she says "I lake  these spells sometimes. I want  us to be friends again."  From this point on, the old  lad) gives me the royal carpet  treatment and even has me to  suppei on a couple of occasions, We are getting along  lamousK until Grace returns,  complaining vehemently aboul  ihe money she has lost to the  one-armed bandits. Tension  settles over that sad house  again. Grace and her mother  resume their milennial bickering and I relinquish my brief  responsibility, not without a  certain intangible twinge of  regret.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Back at the rooming-house  there is a disquieting sense of  impending disaster. Nels has  finally secured himself a head-  loader's job in some camp or  other and flown back up the  coast. Now I am alone in the  upper floor of the house. There-  is still no word from Tinker and  normally cheerful Jen is in a  sullen mood. Both the phone  and the power have been  disconnected again. Fortunately there is a gas-range in her  kitchen where she allows me to  cook my makeshift meals. But  things have certainly deteriorated to a new low.  And one morning, 1 return  there after an overnight visit  with certain immoderate  friends, to find the lower part of  the house utterly deserted. All  Jen's and Tinker's things are  gone. Evidently he must have  returned in my absence and  moved them out lock, stock  and barrel, leaving only random rubbish and all thc unpaid  bills. What happens now? I am  in a complete quandary. 1 have  a paid-up rent receipt for the  next two weeks and now my  landlord has done a duck. To  SUMMER SCHEDULE  SUNSHINE COAST  Effective June 20.  The B.C. Ferry Corporation today released the  planned summer schedule for service between  Saltery Bay and Earls Cove on Jervis Inlet.  Commencing Friday, June 20th and continuing  through Sunday, September 14th, 1980 there will  be 10 sailings of the "Powell River Queen". Thefirst  sailing from Saltery Bay will be 6:00 am and the last  sailing from Earls Cove, 11:25 pm.  Thecapacityofthestretched'VowellRiverQueen"  will provide 700 car spaces per day in each  direction.  Last summer on the run across Jervis Inlet the  "Pender Queen "was retained in service along with  the "Powell River Queen". This dual service was required because of the concerns about reliability of  the newly stretched and re-powered "Powell River  Queen". This decision proved to be prudent because it did take time to iron out the bugs of the new  propulsion system.  When the "Powell River Queen" was proven in  service the "Pender Queen" was withdrawn from  service in October and will not be reactivated.  After 57 years of safe, reliable service, the "Pender  Queen", the only wooden-hulled vessel in the B.C.  Ferries' fleet, retires Irom service after a lifetime  plying the waters of British Columbia.

I decide. I will just  stay on in the room and see  what develops. Perhaps the  real-estate outfit will send  down someone else to take over  the tenancy.  I camp alone in the evacuated building for almost two  weeks, keeping my room locked and largely avoiding the  house by day. The gas is still  connected and I continue lo  cook in Jen's empty kitchen. I  return to the place after dark  and huddle in my island room  reading by candlelight wilh the  door securely latched against  invasion, for the first time, I  begin to brood a bit on the  Popcorn Man's demise. Sometimes, I swear I hear noises  coming from lhat vacant room  across the hall.  Finally there is a loud  insistent hammering on my  door one morning. It is an irate  little man from the rental-  agency, demanding  to know  where Tinker and Jen have  gone. I tell him honestly that I  don't have a clue. He hems,  haws and tells me that I wili  have to move my gear out of  there within 24 hours as the  house is to be redecorated.  That is the end of that. Only a  short time before, I had two  beds at my disposal in this  neighbourhood. Now I have  none. With the help of a friend,  1 vacate those forlorn premises  by the alloted deadline. Eventually I locate another cheap  room in another rock-bottom  lodging-house, many blocks  away.  I continue to do thc Press-  lord's chores for sometime  alter ihis. Eventually, the poor  old lady grows too feeble to  lend for herself and has lo be  placed in a home. Grace puts  the house up for sale and  dispenses with my services.  Shortly alter Ihis, I leave  Vancouver in search of some  slightly-saner life-style. But thc  image of Mrs. Pressford making her music against midnight  will remain with me down the  vears.

Lyn Vernon to  be interviewed  Television Ten has recorded  an interview with local opera  star Lyn Vernon and opera  enthusiast Allan J. Crane of the  Coast News.  Operatic soprano/mezzo-  soprano Lyn Vernon is definitely a home-grown phenomenon. She was born in New  Westminster but moved to the  Sunshine Coast with her parents (Ran and Evelyn Vernon  of Gower Point Road) when  she was five years old. Her  elementary and high school  years were all spent on the  Sunshine Coast.  Her first encounter with a  horse was not in La Fanciulla  del West (Girl of the Golden  West), surely the original  j spaghetti Western, written by  Giacomo Puccini in 1910 for  Enrico Caruso to sing the role  of Dick Johnson and Fasquale  Amato that of the Sheriff. But  she speaks of a performance of  that opera, of horses, Elphinstone High School and much  more in this interview. It lasts  approximately one half hour  and will be televised through  the co-operation of Coast  Cablevision on Wednesday,  May 24, at 7 p.m. in the  Gibsons area, and at 7:30 p.m.  in Sechelt on Thursday, Mav  15.  For professional production  equipment much more sophisticated than is here available to  date is necessary. It is to the  credit of Marta McKown who  teaches a media course at  Elphinstone that the programme is of professional calibre  and makes skilful use of "video-  over" and other editing techniques.

Off the shelf  by John Moore  "The Fine Art of Tattooing*,  as tattooist Spider Webb calls  it in his book Pushing Ink,  (Fireside Books, Simon &  Shuster, 1979. $8.95) has been  a controversial subject for  hundreds of years. The practice of tattooing was virtually  stamped out in the western  world by the rise ofthe Church  out ofthe ashes of the Roman  Empire. As a pagan practice,  tattooing was thoroughly suppressed and survived only in  isolated areas where the influence of the Church was less  strongly felt.  Though the art has enjoyed a  considerable Renaissance in  the last decade, it is still illegal in parts of the United  States and to some extent still  suffers from its association in  the public mind with convicts,  drunken sailors, carnivals and  seedy waterfront shops where  irresponsible young men,  usually fortified with liquid  courage, undergo deliberate  mutilation under unsanitary  conditions.  Tattooing is a subject on  which people still hold strong  opinions. Many people say  they are disgusted by the idea  of tattooing and repelled by  the sight of examples of the  living art. Others have taken  to referring to tattoos as  "Warm Art", regarding them  as the most significant personal aesthetic statement an  individual can make. The very  violence of the contrast in  public opinion on the subject  hints at its profundity.  The word tattoo is derived  from the Polynesian word,  "tatau", meaning "the result  of tapping or striking". Captain Cook spelled it "Tattow"  and his third voyage to the  Pacific in 1776 was one of the  major contributions to the  European re-discovery of the  art. The practice, as Cook himself recognized, has at one  time or another been a universal feature of all human cultures. Though it is an impermanent art, in a sense, it is as  old and as persistently prevalent as man himself.  Primitiv: .Moo instruments  have been discovered on the  sites of Neolithic cave paintings. A number of Egyptian  mummies, all women incidentally, have been discovered bearing tattoos preserved with their skin. In 1948 the  2000 year-old preserved  tattooed body of a Scythian  chief was discovered in the  Altai- region of the Soviet  Union. The ancient Incas practised the art, as did the Chinese of Marco Polo's time.  When Julius Caesar invaded  Britain in 54 B.C. he recorded  in his Commentaries that the  Britons painted their bodies  blue; in fact, they tattooed  their'bodies, faces and hands  with blue woad dye, a practice  that lingered in outlying areas  until this century.  Tattoos, as Webb points out,  originally had a religious and  social significance which they  Aluminum,  Wooden, and  INVERSION  WINDOWS  Auto  Glass  FRAMED!  CUT miRRORS  still possess in primitive culture. For this reason the "new  order" in the form of the  Church and civilization in  general has a vested interest  in eradicating such highly  visible and dramatic manifestations of the traditional orders they would supplant. Tattoos on the hands and face,  because they are particularly  visible and dramatic, are  especially prohibited even in  areas where body tattooing is  permitted. One look at  the 19th century engraving  of the fully tattooed face of a  Maori chief reproduced in  Pushing Ink says it all.  The tradition of the full  body tattoo, a common but  now rapidly disappearing feature of primitive cultures,  reached its fullest expression  oddly enough! in the civilized  culture of feudal Japan. The  samurai nobles of Japan, fearing thc erosion of their prestige by a growing wealthy  middle class, made it unlawful for any but the nobles to  wear jewelry and fine robes.  The middle class retaliated by  commissioning full "body  suit" tattoos, leaving onlyh the  hands, feet and face exposed.  Often taking several years to  complete, these suits are marvels, incomparable in colour  and design. Coincidentally,  the tradition of this type of  tattooing is being perpetuated  by yet another "nouveau  riche" group, the Yazukai, the  gangsters of Japanese organized crime.  Tattoos may signify anything, but they always signify  something, drawing a kind of  magical power from their religious origins, In his book,The  White Goddess Robert Graves  mentions that Celtic seamen  in pre-Christian times had a  blue star tattooed on the palm  or between the thumb and  forefinger of the back of the  hand as a charm against  drowning. I asked an old sailor  I know, a veteran ofthe British  Merchant Marine, and he told  me he remembered seeing  such tattoos on the hands of  old sailors when he first went  Tire  warning  The RCMP wish to inform the  public that the deadline for  removing studded tires was  April 30th.

Within a week of talking to him, I was sitting on a  bus when the old man beside  me got up to get off. When he  grabbed the stanchion I saw  a small faded blue star tattooed between the thumb and  forefinger of his right hand.  Another sea-faring friend of  mine has a small tattoo of a  sinking ship on his forearm  with a banner bearing a ship's  name and the legend, "Sailor's Grave", a souvenir of a  ship that went down under  him in the shark-infested Red  Sea.  The reasons why people get  tattoos are as deep as the  human psyche. Most often  they arc associated with the  "rites of passage", those  events in human life which,  whether they take the shape of  formal ritual in puberty or  marriage rites in primitive  societies, or simply private  personal crisis, ultimately  result in the psychological  "rebirth" of the individual.  The tattoos young men  acquire as a result of dares by  their peers are a kind of informal machismo-proving  manhood ritual. Recent years  have seen an upsurge in the  practice of lovers acquiring  small tattoos on parts of the  body not normally displayed, a  mark of intimacy and commitment as indelible as the tattoo,  (or so one would have it.).  Pushing Ink may not change  anyone's opinion of tattoos  and the art of creating them,  feelings on the subject tend  to run too deeply for that.  What the book does do is provide an absorbing history and  entertaining "state of the art"  message written by a master  of the craft who is himself in  the forefront of the new approach to an art as ancient as  man. Pushing Ink is published  in a large-format softcover  edition, which keeps the price  down. Considering the profusion of excellent photographs,  it is a coffee-table natural.

Coast News, May 13, 1980  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  This is the story of what appears to be a racket.  A couple of months ago a  local businessman received an  unexpected phone call from  Montreal. An enthusiastic and  gung ho promoter told him the  wonderful news that he'd  been chosen from a number of  others and was the winner of  an all espenses paid trip to  Reno for two. The businessman, we'll call him Mr. X,  wasn't particularly excited by  this windfall. He's not the  gambling type and Reno isn't  on his short list of places to  visit at his own or anyone  else's expense. When he  could get a word in edgeways  he made it clear to thc caller  that he wasn't really interested in Reno, but the guy from  Montreal wasn't one whit  abashed. This generous company was also offering him 218  ball point pens engraved with  his name, business and phone  number, and they and the details of the trip to Reno would  be mailed to him on receipt of  a money order or certified  cheque for $199.38 which included $9.72 for shipping  charges.  A few days later the invoice  and a form letter from the  company's general manager  came in the mail and having  decided the pens were no bargain and he didn't need them  anyway Mr X filed the correspondence and forgot it. Presuming that when they didn't  get his cheque they'd write  him off as a no-runner.  Apparently the company in  Montreal just didn't believe  anyone would really turn down  their all-expenses paid trip to  Reno and a week or so later  they phoned again. What had  happened to the cheque for  the pens, they were all ready  and waiting to go? Now Mr X  is by nature polite, co-operative and patient and it didn't  occur to him to tell the character in unfriendly terms to get  lost. He again explained that  he really wasn't interested in  either the pens or the trip to  Reno and that they were wasting their time. The montreal  caller apparently suffered  from a tin ear, or just couldn't  believe his ears and concluded  the one-sided conversation  by saying that the package of  pens and the vacation certificate would be sent COD  forthwith.  Annoyed at being pressured  into buying something he  didn't want, Mr X was nevertheless a little intrigued by  this outfit and their determination to get him to Reno but  he realized he 'd be sunk if, to  satisfy his curiosity, he accepted thc parcel. So when it  turned up at the Post Office he  refused it and it was returned  to the sender in Montreal.  Mr X hoped that would be the  last he'd hear about the matter but it wasn't. And the next  phone call was not from the oh  so enthusiastic and friendly  promoter of this wonderful  opportunity to go to Reno, but  a surly type demanding to  know why the parcel had been  returned and attempting to  frighten Mr X with threats of  solicitors, telling him all the  telephone conversations had  been taped, implying they  would be used to sue for  breach of contract.  Mr X wasn't quite sure, off  thc top of his head how the law-  stands with regard to taped  conversations, but by now he  was so annoyed at the whole  silly nonsense that he terminated the conversation abruptly without further argument.  Even though you're certain  there is no case against you,  and actually the shoe was on  the other foot if the conversations had been taped, as it is  illegal to tape any conversation without permission, it's  uncomfortable and disturbing  to find oneself threatened in  this manner.  Needless to say, nothing further has been heard from this  advertising company. In this  sort of deal one has to eventually write off those you are  not able to cajole or frighten.  As thc parcel of promotional  pens was not accepted one can  only speculate about the  "free" trip to Reno, but obviously there must be more to  it than meets the eye. The profit on 218 pens, less the long  distance calls isn't going to  finance an all-expenses paid  trip to the corner drug store  never mind Reno.  Is this Montreal company a  front for one of the big gambling interests in Reno and the  come-on just a way to get  people hooked? Or as the vacation unfolds do you find  yourself deeper and deeper  involved in something you can  only buy yourself out of? Is  this just the tip of a larger iceberg, or just a sleazy scheme  to part the small independent  businessman from his savings?

Editor, the Sun,  Sir:  "It is not difficult to understand the so-called apathy of  the public in responding to the  Red Feather Appeal after  reading the article under the  heading 'Army Leader Deplores Neglect of Standards'  on Page 2, Section3 of Friday's Sun, Oct. 24th.  "While this'good lady', who  happens to be a 'General' and  International Head of the Salvation Army, is deploring the  standards of others, it is only  too evident that she firmly  believes in keeping up her  own, ensconsed in her suite at  the best and most expensive  hotel in the city.  "It would be of great interest  to me and, possibly to others  to know just how much of this  money, begged in the name of  Charity and of Christ, actually  is used in the relief of the  poor, unfortunate and the  needy and how much finds it's  way into the administration,  salaries, building of citadels,  etc., of these highly publicized, professed Christian  organisations,  "I am afraid that all the combined noise of the cornets  blowing, tambourines rattling  and drums thumping cannot  efface from my mind the suspicion that this, like many  others, is a highly organised  and lucrative racket providing  an easy and affluent living  for those who are quick to criticize the standards and principles of others, while having  very few of their own.  Dee Cee"  The above letter was submitted by me to the Sun twenty-  two years ago. Was it printed?  You must be kiddingl No, it  was returned to me with the  standard letter of rejection,  lack of space, regret that...  blah, blah, blah, etc! However  if there is any truth in the assertion that "elephants never  forget" then there must be  quite a bit ofthe pachyderm in  me as I have not forgotten either and I never will I  It happened in the month of  January during the terrible  winter of 1926-27 which I  spent in Montreal without  work - hungry, homeless and  friendless. I remember so well  how I had tramped the streets  all day looking both for work  and a handout to appease my  desperate hunger. That night,  and a bitterly cold one it was,  it came on to snow, not the  soft gentle wet snow we know  out here on the coast, but the  hard   stinging   pellets   that  seemed to drive not only into  one's face but to penetrate  right through one's clothes  and mine at the time were  definitely skimpy I can assure  you. In addition it was at least  15-20 degrees below zero so to  sleep outside was out of the  question.  Someone had told me that I  could get a free bed and possibly a slice or two of bread  and a hot drink at the Salvation Army Hostel which was  on a street down near the  docks, so there I went, I had  no other place to go. When I  arrived I imagine it was  around 7.30-8.00 p.m. and  already outside, as the doors  were not open, was a queue of  men lined up in single file almost a block long. Old and  young, reasonably clothed or  shabby, as I was, they were all  there looking for a bed and  shelter from the freezing elements.  In due course the doors were  opened and slowly the line  started to move inside under  the guidance of an officious  and pompous sub-lieutenant  in uniform who was issuing orders as if he was in charge of  some major military operation. I was away back in the  line so still out in the street  but eventually, after what  seemed like an eternity, I was  admitted inside where at  least there was some warmth.  Slowly the line shuffled forward till I found myself facing  a desk where a big fat man  was seated. Whether he was  a major, or a colonel or had  just come from the right-hand  side of God I don't know but  he had a beetroot face and the  rolls of fat hung over his tight-  fitting collar in folds. All in all,  he certainly didn't look as if  he was suffering from malnutrition!  He had a ledger in front of  him and a pencil or pen in his  hand. Giving me a scowl of  disapproval he barked  "Name?" and when I gave it (a  fictitious one), he made a  notation in the book and barking again in a loud voice he  said 83, which I presume signified my allotted bed number  and then, to my consternation,  and almost in the same  breath, he demanded 25  cents! When in confusion I  stammered that I didn't have  25 cents he turned almost  purple with rage and half  rising from his chair, he  pointed at me and shouted  "Then what are you doing in  here?Get to hell out and stop  holding up the line!" I stumbled from the building in a  daze.

I slept that night in a  draughty shed down at the  docks, my covering an old  piece of canvas I had found  and my feet wrapped in all the  newspapers I could find to  prevent them from freezing.  This all happened 54 years  ago and I shall never forget,  never. Now I know the apologists will attempt to say that  this was an isolated incident,  just one of those things that  happen sometimes, but my  answer to that is NO-it happens all the time.  I haven't a doubt in the world  that when William Booth  founded the Salvation Army in  1878 he and his loyal wife Catherine and later their son  Bramwell and, still later, their  daughter Evangeline, had the  highest motivation and did a  great deal of good in the slums  of London, I cannot question  that, but somewhere along the  line the rot set in and the  sweet smell of money entered  the picture and from that time  on it was all down hill. W.H.  Davies in his Autobiography  of a Super Tramp (prefaced by  Bernard Shaw) describes them  as "a bunch of sanctimonious  hypocrites" and Jack London  in The People of the Abyss  goes one better and calls them  "pious humbugs".  With or without their endorsement I can cite examples  far closer to home. If you  doubt my word ask a certain  businessman, a stone's toss  from the office of The Coast  News, to describe to you what  happened when he went to the  Sally Ann in a prairie city during the Hungry 30's to try and  get a pair of boots in order to  stook grain. He had the job-  they had the boots but he  didn't possess the required  $1.50-so no boots even though  he was spared the get "to hell  out of here" routine.

The  topic was "Rhododendrons and  Azaleas".  The Wilsons have been  residents ofthe Sunshine Coast  for almost six years.andduring  that time have planted a  splendid collection of rhododendrons and azaleas. They  have been so pleased with the  great splashes of color given by  these plants, and, wishing to  learn more about them, joined  the Vancouver Chapter of the  American Rhododendron Society, which meets every third    ed  Drug Arrests  Thursday in the Floral Hall at  Van Dusen Gardens.  Eric has become very knowledgeable on the subject, and  was able to give a splendid talk  on their history, cultivation  and care. The beautiful blooms  he had brought to the meeting  more than made up for the lack  of slides.  Many clubs and organizations have been holding plant  sales this year to augment their  finances. On the 24th of May  there will be a section for the  sale of plants at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council Inter-  Action Auction.  If the persons who donate  plants to this sale would take a  moment to attach a label to  identify each plant, those in  charge would be greatly assist-  After two nights of surveillance, the Sechelt RCMP  arrested five people on drug  charges. The police made the  arrests in a commercial property on Cowrie and Wharf Street  at 10 p.m. on Thursday, May  8th.  Charges are contemplated  against a male and a female  adult for trafficking in marijuana, two male adults for  possession of the drug, and two  male juveniles on the same  charge.  A total of five ounces of  marijuana were seized. The five  taken into custody are all local  and have been released pending  charges.  he was treated when he stayed  at the Harbour Lights and, in  particular, ask him to tell you  what happened when he was  assigned with others to the  task of sorting out the tins and  packages of a water and  smoke damaged Safeway  Store on Broadway.

They got the sardines, the pork and beans and  the macaroni and you may  quess where the other stuff  went.  If anyone reading this goes  of!' half-cocked and brands me  an extremely bitter man, I  agree I am. Even after 54  vears it still rankles me. Yes,  I know and have heard all  about Miracle Valley, Homes  for  Unwed  Mothers,   Duns-  muir House and the oft repeated remark "The Sally Ann  is my favourite charity".  Okay, let it be. I also remember the coloured water masquerading as tea or coffee  which was dispensed overseas  by the Red Shield canteens  and the stale doughnuts and  cup cakes for two pence or  three pence a throw! Yes, you  can have your S.A. They have  to make some show of charity  to justify the hundreds of  thousands of dollars taken in,  but personally I wouldn't give  them a wooden nickle If I had  one. I know and it would worry  me that as soon as they found  out its rarity they would sell it  for all the traffic would bear!

During her stay MADAME  .BENOIT was the house guest  'pf long time friend BRUNO  GERUSSI who reports that  even after a tiring day on the set  he couldn't keep her out ofthe  'kitchen.  Visiting that same week were  'Bruno's daughter TINA and  .his grandson KENNY RAY (10  months) who got a taste of star  treatment himself. The apple of  ���his grandfather's eye dined  royally at FITZGERALD'S  and the OMEGA during his  visit but with all due respect to  .the above mentioned fine  eateries, the highlight of his  gustatory experiences must  )have been the two meals  .personally prepared by MADAME BENOIT herself.  All of which goes to prove  {hat you can't keep a great chef  out of the kitchen and further  proves that some kids have all  the luck.  No sooner had his family and  friends taken leave ofthe house  on the hill than BRUNO was  off to present awards to  TOMMY DOUGLAS and  DAVID LEWIS at the huge  CANADIAN LABOUR CONGRESS convention in Winnipeg where trade unionists from  around the world were among  the 3000-plus guests honouring  these great former leaders of  the New Democratic Party.  According to Bruno neither  one has lost a whit of his fiery  oratorical prowess and that  both drew standing ovations  for their acceptance speeches.  Apparently the private party  after the big celebration got a  bit fiery too with delegates  takilif turns singing union  songs in many languages. ' ' ���  BRUNO managed to remember enough Italian lyrics  to make an appropriate contribution to the proceedings  which, by all accounts, went on  til the wee hours of the morn.  Speaking of singing; local  angler and opera buff "NAP'  MAILEY after agreeing to play  a small role in THE BIGGEST  &UTABAGA IN THE  WORLD (rolls tomorrow) has  begun making contract demands. In addition to star  bijing for his boat the "Stand  Erfsy" he wants background  music for his scene supplied by  a recording of Massini singing  'fls lucevan le stelle" from  Tbsca.  ..'BRUNO has agreed to hum  "JDreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last  Night" off-camera if it will be  of any help.

The crowded store-room at the Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum.  Museum seeks extension  In a letter received by the  Gibsons Council at their  regular meeting last Tuesday  evening, Sheila Kitson, President ofthe Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society, drew the  attention of the Council to the  growing problem of available  space for exhibits at the  Museum.  Ms. Kitson expressed the  gratitude ofthe Society for the  use of the present building and  observed that its location,  across from the Post Office and  next to the I.C.B.C. office has  proven to be excellent for  Museum purposes.  She went on to point out,  however, that many of the  small items included in initial  displays have to be sorted  to make room for larger  exhibits received more recently.  Numerous artifacts now occupy all available space in the  museum's small storeroom and  in both washrooms.  Ms. Kitson drew Council's  attention to a meeting held  prior to the construction ofthe  present building, at which time  the membership was informed  that the possibility of constructing a second floor on the  present building would be  given consideration when the  occasion presented itself.  "We are now desperately in  need of additional floor space  to provide for showcases in  which to exhibit the many  small items," Ms. Kitson said.  "From a point of architecture  in that particular location, a  second floor may not meet the  approval of Council. Actually,  a number of our members have  favoured enlargement at  ground level, immediately  north of the existing building."  The letter has been referred  to the Council's Planning  Committee. Mayor Lorraine  Goddard remarked that in view  of the construction presently  underway, other quarters may  be available.  Water important  Water is a physiological  requirement for all people  and therefore its quality must  be the best possible. Unfortunately water can act as a  vehicle for the spread of  numerous bacterial, viral and  parasitical diseases. Falling  as rain and then flowing both  over and under the ground,  water can pick up many contaminants before reaching its  ultimate destination, the  consumer. Therefore, it is  essential that drinking water  be obtained from a suitable  source and be treated if  necessary  Routine monitoring of all  public water systems for  bacteriological quality is  carried out by the Health  Unit. Frequency of sampling  is determined by the size of  population utilizing the supply.  Public water system operators  are advised routinely as to the  water quality of their supply  and its comparison with accepted Public Health standards. Private home owners  with their own source of water  can obtain information on  the protection and development of small supplies from  the Health Unit. Also sampling and inspections may be  arranged with the local Public  Health Inspector depending  upon the source of supply,  its present state of protection  and location. The Health Unit  as a nutter of general policy  will not sample sources  which are subject to contamination  These water supplies should  be disinfected.

The  team played very well considering three members ofthe.  team were not there. The final  score was 3-0. Two goals were  scored by Sylvia Passmore and  one by Cindy Maclean. Great  work, team!  On May 7, Elphinstone had  two fire drills. The first one  went off at about 12:50 p.m.  The building was cleared  quickly. As everyone was going back to class the second  one went off. Again the building was cleared quickly.  It was like an instant replay.  On May 8 the Biology 11 students took their time in class  to go to Cliff Gilker Park.  There they picked certain  kinds ol flowers, pine cones,  mosses and bark. Mr. Smeth-  hurst collected the specimens  and will be using them in future classes. The students  enjoyed the outing as it was a  break from having a normal  class.

Ms. Everett says the class  should have a good time tasting the French Cuisine.  On May 14 an 15 a district  science fair will be held.  It will consist of Elementary  and Secondary schools from  Egmont to Langdale. The fair  will be held in the Elphinstone  gym.and will be separated  into four categories which are:  experiments, models, collections and displays. There also  are games for the children.  This science fair is for mass  participation by all students.  On May 10, students from  Elphinstone are going to Midland Ont, on the exchange  program.

S1099.95  ATTENTION  CONTRACTORS  MORE THAN 300 PIECES |  OF EQUIPMENT ARE j  WORKING TO DIVERT A RIVER AT A  JAMES BAY SITE.  ONLY ONE MOTOR OIL KEEPS THEM  WORKING: SHELL ROTELLA T15W/40  To maintain the fleet, a garage  was erected on the spot. It's fully  equipped and run by a professional 125-man service crew.  Then came the job of choosing a  lubricant to keep the massive  mixed fleet on the job. The ultimate choice was Shell Rotella T  15W/40. For 4 critical reasons:  1, UNIVERSALITY. Shell Rotella  T 15W/40 could be used in all the  company's turbocharged Detroit  Diesel, Mack and Caterpillar engines as well as all the gasoline  engines on the job site. To an operation that's only accessible by air.  ordering and stocking just one  motor oil meant lower transit  costs, storage costs, paperwork  costs. And reduced on-site inventory problems.  Of all the construction projects  ever undertaken in Canada,  James Bay must rank as the most  awesome. Not just because of its  sheer size but also because of the  extreme working conditions.  The job sites are isolated In  harsh wilderness. For fi and more  months a year, severe sub zero  temperatures prevail. Add to this  the pressure of finishing the job on  time. And it's no wonder work  continues almost round the clock  to meet contract deadlines.  Construction St. Laurent began  work on the project In February  1!177. Their portion ends in 1981.  The job: to divert a river to build a  series of dams.  An entirely new mixed fleet was  shipped in specifically for the contract: more than 300 pieces of  equipment. Most were Caterpillars  ��� trucks, loaders and 'dozers. But  Ihere were also 30 Mack trucks, a  fleet of gasoline-engine service  support vehicles plus four 72-seat  buses lo transport men from camp  In work site.  2. NO RISK OF OIL MIX-UPS. By  only using Shell Rotella T, the risk  of an oil mix-up was eliminated ���  which might not have been the  case had 3 different motor oils  been used lor the 3 major engine  makes in the fleet. Especially since  the service crew was so large. With  no risk of an oil mix-up, there was  also no threat of engine damage or  costly downtime caused by using  the wrong oil.  3. MULTIGRADE BENEFITS. Beside being the only motor oil  needed for the fleet, Shell Rotella T  15W/40 was the only motor oil  needed year-round. As "thick" as  a SAE 40 grade in the summer, yet  "thin" enough for easy starts in  winter. For such a remotely isolated project, Shell Rotella T's all-  season capability made it an even  bigger plus.  4. SECURITY OF SUPPLY. Without adequate motor oil stocks, the  whole project could come to a  standstill. Shell Canada could be  counted on for security of supply.  Shell Rotella T's job record:  perfect  Following manufacturers recommendations, every engine on  the site has an oil change every 250  hours. Oil samples are taken to determine Shell Rotella T's performance. And in one case, an engine  was dismantled to inspect possible engine fatigue.  There has never been a sign of  oil-related problems. Shell Rotella  T has delivered exactly what was  expected of it: premium performance, keeping the massive fleet  at work in temperatures above and  below zero and virtually right  around the clock.  R. Harding & Son Ltd.  886-2133  IMMMMMft During the Second World War  The History of Egmont  When war came to Egmont  for. the second time it did  little to change the lifestyle  of the community in general,  but much to change the lives  of a few.    Young men and  women    donned    uniforms,  some to serve by staying in  Canada, others to go to Europe and fight.   Ben Griffith  became   an  airman,   Benny  Vaughan   and   Stan   Silvey  both joined the army.   Many  others joined what was commonly called the Fishermen's  NaVy, the  Water Transport  Command.  Those whose lives were most  directly     and     dramatically  changed, however, were the  Japanese   members   of   the  community.        When    war  broke out the Takais, Hata-  shitas,   and   Maedas   were  store-keepers and fish-buyers  in Egmont.    The two Takai  boys, Yukio and Nobo, were  quite popular with the young  fishermen in the area.  The  Hatashita family was growing  up with Kay, having taken a  commercial   course   in   Britannia High  School,  taking  over   the   job   of   running  her family's store and her sister,   also   well      educated,  becoming   secretary   to   the  Japanese Consul.  Kay Hatashita was well-loved  in the community and is still  remembered fondly by many  resii' nts.  She was  a  hard-  wor ng      young      woman,  determined to make the store  pay.    She not only ran that  side of the family business  but looked after the post office  and fish-float as well when  need be.   One day she even  operated   a   rowboat   as   a  packer.  That day, a huge run of blue  backs had come in and everyone was so busy fishing  she had no customers. She  closed the store and set out  in a skiff to where the fishermen were hauling in fish as  fast ns they could. Kay and  Ted Hyashi, a friend of her  family who was sent out to  help her, worked at their task  for hours plying back and  forth from boats to fish-float  until finally, whether from  exhaustion on the part of  (he fishermen, or depletion  of the run, it was all over.  They must have transported  tons of blue backs that day.  Ted Hyashi's position was  something for speculation  in those days, some thinking  lie was an adopted child,  others claiming he was a protege, but whatever he was to  the Hatashitas it was generally accepted that he would one  day become their son-in-law.  Wewas a clever young man,  interested in photography,  radio and carpentry. It was  hi- who renovated the living  quarters at the back of the  store and added an upstairs.  j The main purpose of the  Japanese in Egmont had traditionally been that of buying  fisjt. The stores, both the one  oa; ihe float, and Hatashita's  on the beach were merely  incidental to purpose until  Kay took over, turning her  family's business into a truly  viatic operation with a large  and varied stock. In doing  ihis she further endeared herself to the women in the area  ��r|o had been forced to do  without a good many items  prjor to that because the  uwhers of the two stores  cajldn't be bothered to stock  ntoe than the bare necessities. '  When in 1941, Japan entered  the ''.���'.i, very little notice was  taketiof the situation, except  lor the fact that the postal  department Jtcided to remove  the post office from th ��� Hatashita's store. The job of the  posfcmaster was then taken on  by (tner Beamish who built a  small place on a float and tied  it ub near the store where it  seryed for several years.  When Ted Hyashi was told  the news that Japan had  attacked Pearl Harbour  he shook his head sadly and  said, "This will be bad for us."  It is doubtful if he had any  comprehension of just how  bad it was to become.  Canada and Japan had been  enemies for some time  before the government told  all the Japanese on the coast  to be prepared for evacuation  at any moment. Time passed.  Nothing happened. Maybe it  was only those under suspicion of some sort who would  be taken. Local people had no  fears of the Japanese in their  midst. These were their  friends, their neighbours, and  the odd nervous comment  about Ted's interest in radio  and photography was snorted  at by the majority.  However, about two o'clock  one morning something  crashed into McNutt's float.  (They were living in houses  on floats tied up in the bay  east of Egmont Point at the  time, having just moved  down from Beaver Creek  and not yet managed to pull  their houses ashore.) Gladys  McNutt remembered that  night and the brief time which  followed like this:  'When the boat crashed  against the float my husband,  Fred, awoke with imprecations upon the head of the one  who had bashed into our  float. Then there was a loud  knocking at the door. There  stood young Ted. 'The police  have come for us and we have  to be ready to leave at eight in  the morning. Please ask that  everyone in the bay come  down to the store so they can  settle up with us or arrange  payment of their accounts  before  we're  taken   away.'  "One of the Japanese men  was making the rounds of  the other shore passing the  same message, and another  had gone through the Chuck  to Doriston  with a  similar  request.  "Next day, we went to the  store to pay our bill but we  were too late. They had gone.  We had forgotten it W8S daylight saving time. It was  something new then and  everyone in Egmont was ignoring it as the tides and the  fish didn't pay much attention  to man-made regulations.  "All the Japanese from Egmont to Pender Harbour  were put aboard the Union  Steamship and sent to Vancouver before being dispersed. They were allowed to  take only what they could  carry. All their boats, some of  them very fine ones, were tied  up in the Fraser River where  they were eventually sold for  whatever they could bring'  That the boats brought little  is history, but one reason for  that is not widely known.  It seems that when they had  been collected and taken  to Vancouver many of the  boats were tied up in Bidwell  Bay, but damage due to  storms prompted the authorities to move them to a 'safer'  location in the river. There it  has been reported they were  further damaged and many of  them sunk allegedly by the  vandalism of a few irresponsible members of the Fishermen's Navy.  But back in Egmont life went  on while the people learned to  live with rationing of many  goods and remembered the  friends and neighbours who  had been so rudely snatched  from their homes and livelihoods and given little, if any,  compensation.

The primary one was to help them  decide whether they are suited  to the job and to help them  choose the courses they will  have to take in their senior  years in order to prepare for  that vocation. Not really se-  acc  az  condary - for it was equally  important - was to close the  generation gaps between the  various age groups. This  has been very neatly done (our  congratulations to Mr. Turner)  by placing students in commercial businesses, old age  establishments and the Gibsons Elementary School - even  the police department I  Prior to last week, the students underwent aptitude  tests in March and were given  lectures on behavior and what  to do on the job.  In talking to participating  students and employers, Mr.  Turner reports that the overriding feeling regarding the  programme is one of excited  enthusiasm.  ac    j  UHK  HARDWARE STOttfS  4 DAYS ONLY  May 14th through 17th  WHILE STOCK LASTS! *  LAWNMOWERS & WHEELBARROWS  SUMMER LAWN FURNITURE  Chairs, Lounges, Tables.

They are just so crisp and fresh and  I do like the fact that I can pick up as many or as  few as 1 like.  * If you've been scanning the 'specials', you'll  notice that chicken is on sale. If you don't want  to barbecue, try marinating it overnight in a  small carton of frozen lime juice. Bake the  chicken in the juice together with two  tablespoons of margarine, salt, pepper and half a  teaspoon of thyme. Baste about every fifteen  minutes. Serve garnished with slices of fresh  lime and call it by some exotic name.  * If you do want to barbecue your chicken then  try   basting   it   with   a   sauce   made   from:-  1/3 cup cooking oil  1 teaspoon lemon juice  1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce  1/2 teaspon salt  1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning  pepper  Don't forget to sprinkle the chicken with an  ample amount of paprika so that it will go really  brown.  * And for my last totally unrelated idea ��� this  one for cooking tomatoes. Slice your tomatoes  crosswise and place them in an oven proof dish.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano and garlic  powder and a tablespoon of chives or green  onion, chopped finely. Sprinkle breadcrumbs  and grated Parmesan on top and broil until  golden brown.  * I just can't stop there. ..my son came home with  ball point pen all over his T-shirt.

This past week  we witnessed or read about Commemorative services in Holland. The  Dutch, particularly, have shown continued gratefullness to their  benefactors. The Canadians fought bitterly contested rear-guard  strongholds before a retreating German army,���an army while in  retreat had lots of clout.  Europe and the western world went wild with exultation when the  bells of peace finally rang out from church spires all across the allied  lands. During the war and Immediately after its cessation people  everywhere could only think of the need for simple joys like good  food, shelter, love and security. But the promises held forth of 'Peace  ever After' in songs like 'The White Cliffs of Dover' have long since  faded into oblivion as those of World War I���the war that was to end  all wars.  The architects for the peacetime objectives of food, shelter,  industry, brotherly love and security���heaped huge quantities of  material aid upon the vanquished. So that they, too, could rebuild and  ultimately enjoy the spoils of the victor. The allies, particularly the  U.S.A., were more than generous. The U.S.A., having learned the  lessons of isolationism after World War I assumed the role of  policeman', together with a rag-tag bunch of allies, each wanting to  do it their way. Our own country hasdone less than it could or should.  It seems that we cannot, or will not, learn the lessons ot history. The  fact of war and strife has been with humanity for thousands of years  and it will not change. It will not change for the simple reason that  people haven't changed.  The divisiveness persistent today on almost every issue, large or  small, aided and abetted by a media that thinks not of national  interests first, frightens me. The social support system we have  developed, and which I subscribed to, has molly-coddled a large  proportion of our populous to the point that they no longer try to help  themselves, or think for themselves.  By Bill Edney  Our politicians and elected leaders frequc  <Px  / do not think of  country first in their inter-provincial dealings, but rather to gain  power and recognition by besting others. Tnu actions of the  petroleum resource provinces, the in-fighting between provincial  premiers and the Federal government are disgusting.  We need to tell our leaders in no uncertain terms that our common  identity is Canadian and that we want the rewards of Canadian  resources and technology shared among Canadians. We as a people  can ease the burdens of inflation, high interest, and high taxation by  being more productive, and less demanding on the rewards of our  productivity.  I recently came across an advertisement in a technical magazine  which expounds the Capitalist precept.  "You cannot bring about prosperity  by discouraging thrift.  "You cannot strengthen the weak  by weakening ihe strong.  "You cannot help the wage earner  by pulling down the wage payer  "You cannot further the brotherhood of man  by encouraging class haired.  "You cannot help the poor,  by destroying the rich,  "You cannot establish security  by spending more than you earn,  "Vou cannot build character and courage  by faking away initiative and independence,  "You cannot help people permanently  by doing for them what they can or should do  for themselves,"  I'm sure the unknown author of the foregoing could have  added some more fundamental truths���but for starters, they  suit my philosophy. Young or old���aren't you getting  concerned about what we're doing and where we're going? A  change, any change must start with us  Suiier Special!  SPRING SALMON]  Whole Fish  $2.99 Ib.

Coast News, May 13,  Contractors view  1980  Fditor:  In response to "Labour  Trouble at Port Mellon".  As one of the "Outside  Contractors", there are some  points that should be expounded. Although this  construction company is Vancouver based, we endeavor  to employ LOCAL Construction Union Members, (within the limitations of each  Union Agreement), and at  present almost one-half of  our work force is such.  If major renovations or  expansions took place in the  near future at Port Mellon,  outside labour would have to  be brought in, either by the  Mill or "Outside Contractors",  ���is the work force required  would exceed resident availability. As to smaller-sized  jobs, we realize that Mill  Personnel might believe that  "Outside Contractors" deprive  LOCALS of work, but, as in  any Major Operating Pulp  Mill, construction and renovation is an ongoing fact,  and there is always work to be  done. As people hire others to  work on their homes or cars,  so Contractors are hired who  specialize in certain jobs.  We understand the views  pointed out, but Contractors  do not come in with intentions  of taking over Mill Work and  Maintenance, but to expedite  and assist in improving  a mill's Operation.  Last as pointed out by a  spokesman for the CPU,  "They were not against outside contractors", then,  why thc heading "OUTSIDF  CONTRACTORS RESEN���  THD."Doesn't really help to  improve relations among all  those concerned, does it?

Gambier Island  Dear Mr. Premier:  1 have received a great deal  of correspondence, as have  vou, regarding a proposed  mining venture on Gambier  Island.  Although exploratory work  has been proceeding on the  property    for    some    time,  actual mining operations  have not as yet started. In  fact, there is some evidence  to indicate that although the  ore body is quite large the  actual mineral values contained in that ore body are  marginal.  The Islands Trust Commission has unanimously recommended that no mining operation be allowed to proceed  on Gambier Island. Their  recommendation is supported  by two Environmental and  Land Use Commision studies  which were amde available  to the government in February of this year.  I am therefore taking this  opportunity to request the  government take immediate  action to stop all exploration  work in regard to this proposed mine on Gambier  Island.  I look forward to your early  response to this very important matter.  Yours sincerely,  Don Lockstead, MLA  (Mackenzie)  A Historic coincidence  Editor:  In the Coast News of February 20th which was sent on  to me, was a photo of the battleship Repulse entering  Vancouver Harbour in 1924,  the picture from the collection  of E.S. Clayton. The ship was  later sunk with all hands off  Singapore in 1941.  By a strange co-incidence  which you may find of interest  I had just bought at an antique  fair an oval brass tobacco tin  II ���  with HMS Repulse engraved  on the lid.  The brass box is part of a  present for my niece and her  husband who live on a boat  and are collecting commemorative brasses and I had  been trying to forage out the  history of the Repulse to go  with the box and there when I  opened the Coast News was  everything I had been searching for, pictures, history, the  lot.  I was flabbergaste by the  co-incidence and th ght it  merited a thank yoi md an  opportunity to send :etings  to friends on the nshine  Coast.

The Creek team won the game with 12 runs to  the3lues 7.  2nd Cycling Grand Prix  Eviryone declared themselves well pleased with the  outcoae last year when Gibsons itaged its first cycling  Grant Prix. The event was  organzed on behalf of the  Gibsois and District Chamber  of Conmerce by Pamela Ryan  and he participating cyclists  declaed themselves more  than satisfied with the very  demaiding local course.  Lasiyear's race also had the  beneit of a storybook finish  when seventeen-year old  Bruci Spicer of New West-  minser, racing in the colours  of Gps Crescent of Surrey,  led tie way across the finish  line <ne second ahead of Irish  internationalist Jot Smyth,  at thrty-five more than twice  Spics's age. It was young  Spice's first victory in seniors  competition and his last competitor before flying to Ed-  monbn to train with the  Canalian national team.  The Second Annual Grand  Prix will be held on Sunday,  June 1st, this year and it will  agaii be sponsored by Gib-  sonsiand District Chamber of  Conmerce in conjunction with  the Jicycle Association of BC  The highlight of the weekend  will of course be the Grand  Prix itself which will get  underway at 9.30 a.m. on  Sunday. The course will  again go from Gibsons to  Roberts Creek and return  three times for a total of  106 kilometres or just under 70  miles.  Last year on Saturday  evening the cyclists staged a  Miss and Out Race over a  much shorter course with one  racer, the last, dropping out  on every lap but it will not be  possible to offer this unique  and exciting competition this  year due to the late arrival of  the cyclists from a competition in Bellingham.  There will, however, be an  Amateur Race as there was  last year as well as a Tricycle  Race and a Bike Decorating  Contest for the youngsters.  The Amateur Race will be  staged at 12 noon on Sunday,  while the Tricycle Race  will be held at 10.00 a.m.  and the Bike Decorating Contest is scheduled for 9.30 a.m.  The latter two contests will be  held on the Mall parking lot  beside the Bank of Commerce.  The trophies for the various  events will be awarded at  the front of the Mall Parking  Lot. The    professionals  will get their prizes at 1.00  p.m. followed by the award,  a perpetual trophy, for the  Amateur Race and prizes for  the   best   decorated   bikes.  Entry forms for thc Amateur  Race, for those sixteen years  and over, are available from  Super Valu, The Great Canadian Dough Factory, the Royal  Bank, the Bank of Commerce,  and the Bank of Montreal.  Anyone wishing further details on the Amateur Race  should contact Al Wagner of  Douglas Variety. Information  on the children's events is  available from Tony Tyler of  The Great Canadian Dough  Factory.  Any CB'ers with equipment  and people nineteen and over  who are interested in assisting with road marshalling  and traffic control should contact Pamela Ryan at 885-2691.  During the morning the Navy  League will be running a  Pancake Breakfast and hot  dog stand.  Although the Beachcombers team won this game against the Courtney team in the  Provincial Girls Bantam Tournament, they placed well back in the final standings.  Victoria YWCA took the gold medals, the Williams Lake Caribous, the silver and the  Vernon Chevrons the bronze.  The Tuesday Coffee League  finished their playoffs and the  Corner Pins, Sue Whiting,  Nora Solinsky, Donna Whee-  liman, Bev Drombolis and  Chris Moore were the winners. Second place went to  the Fat Chance team of Sandy  Lemky, Chris LePage, Susan  Burns, Karen Powers and  Sandra ?  In the Slough-off League,  the High Hopes team of Lisa  Kincaid, Use Foss, Sylvia  Spain, and Carol Constable  were the winners. This same  team with Sue Whiting as  their fifth bowler won the  House Trophy for the Coffee  Leagues and also won the  Tournament of League  Champs, rolling 241 pins over  their team average. They will  bowl in Vancouver at the end  of the month in the Zone  Round and if they win there  they will bowl at Lincoln,  Lanes in Vernon for $3,500 in  cash prizes.  The Golden Age Swingers  playoff winners were the  Roberts   Creek   Millionaires  team of Len Hornett, Bernice  Niblett, Jack James and Norm  Lambert. Second place went  to the Whltecaps Charlie  Strom,, Celia Nuotio, Art  Teasdale and Lil Perry.  The House Trophy for all  the league champions went  to the Temps from the Gibsons  A League: Terry Cormons,  Mavis Stanley, Pat Prest,  Jamie Gill, Sylvia Bingley and  Don Sleep.  And before I forget, Second  place in the Slough-off League  went to the Duffers; Fumi  Fujimori, Margaret Buchanan  Ann Fitchett, and Carol Tetzlaff.  We held the house round for  the Teambowl Tournament  and we are putting in two  teams this year and they are  both from the Wednesday  Coffee League. The What  Team of Penny McClymont,  Sharon Venechuck, Bobi  Mulligan, Diane 'Strom,  and Joanne Smith came in  first, rolling 299 pins over  average and the New Guys  team of Lois Jackson, Belva  Hauka, Yvonne Inglis, Carol  Gannon and Gail Harris  came in second, rolling 228  pins over average. They will  bowl at North Shore Bowl in  the finals for a trip to Reno.  We held a 5-game marathon  for the YBC Juniors and  Seniors last Sunday night  and Bruce Russell won the  event rolling 133 pins over  average. Cindy    Skytte  was second with 122 over  average,Rick Buckmaster was  third with HO over average and  Brandon Peterson fourth with  89 over average.  The '300' Club Tournament  went last Sunday and Jane  Coates is our 300 Champion  this year, rolling 113 pins over  her average. Armand Wold  was second with a plus 84 and  Bob McConnell was third with  plus 83. Jane rolled a 306  single and Bob a 301 single in  this tournament.  Thc Spring League is into its  third week and I'll catch up  with it next week. A few  300 games were rolled in the  league playoffs and year-end  tournaments and I'll try to get  them in next week also.

Runner-up for this  event was Audrey McKenzie  who shot a 68.  The CLGA Pin Round and  Hidden Hole Competition  was won by Vera Munro and  audrey McKenzie. In this  competition two hidden hole  scores are removed from the  net scores to achieve a winner.  In the nine-hole play Marg  Bevan was first with Nan  McFarlane   placing   second.  No scores were available for  the Monday Mixed Twilight  but   a good turnout and a  fine start to the summer  was made.  In the Men's Wednesday  Night Twilight low gross went  to Ken Hincks with a 35.  Low net was won by Bill  Peterson with a low score of  30'A. Least number of putts  was taken by Roy Taylor  with 14 putts for nine holes.  Our manager, Art Parks has  arranged to hold a clinic for  the proper use of the pitching  irons for the ladies on May 21  at 1.00p.m.  A good turnout was enjoyed  by the Juniors on the first  instruction day. Many thanks  to the school teachers in the  different areas and the many  instructors for their time and  skills.  The third week of the Senior  Men's Thursday Golf is enjoying a good turnout.    With  many variations of scoring  being used, a little skill  and lots of luck and any  player can win. Don't forget  Thursdays at 8.30 a.m.  Our garden gang have been  very busy around the clubhouse weeding, fertilizing and  planting. We are very fortunate in having Dave Hunter,  and Ann and Ted Kerluk for  the many hours of planning  and planting they put in to  achieve the beautiful results  we all enjoy throughout thed  Gibsons Athletic  grant  The Gibsons Council approved a grant of $500 to the  Gibsons Athletic Association  at last Tuesday's Council  meeting. Gibsons Athletic  spokesman Tom Gregorchuk  said the money will go toward  the purchase of new baseball  equipment for the teams.  "A lot of the equipment we  have is old and has to be replaced," Gregorchuk said.  "The kids' registration fees  cover the cost of their hats and  insurance, but the money for  the euipment, balls, bats,  bases,and uniforms, has come  from public support. I've been  out in the community raising  money and the local service  clubs and the Y.M.C.A.have  helped us out with donations  of $100 and uniform shirts.  Canfor donated $500 and that  was a big help, but I've spent  $1600 on new equipment this  year so far. A lot of people  don't realize how much the  price of a single baseball has  gone up lately."  Gregorchuk is optimistic  about the future of the  Association.  "Things didn't look too good  at the beginning of the season," he said, "We had lots of  kids who wanted to play ball,  but only two coaches, including me.' So I told the kids if  they wanted to play ball, we  had to have coaches and at  the next meeting we had ten  fathers. Some of them are  really gung-ho. Now Sechelt is  talking about forming an athletic association of its own and  that should help organize  things there. Next year we're  going to contact local merchants to see if we can get a  full slate of sponsors for the  teams."  886-7454  "Untar the Ortm Canef y"  ��I8I-Ct��ef Flew  k   OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  A  Trail Eay  SPORTS  Sunnycrest Mall.

Coast News, May 13,1980  Youngsters need much more  than criticism  Editor:  Recently I've been reading a  number of articles in the  paper concerning the Pender  Harbour youth. They are,  apparently, causing some  disturbance and making a  general nuisance of themselves. A proposed solution  is Ihe establishment of a local  RCMP detachment with the  idea being, I suppose, the  close proximity of 'authority'  as a deterrent. This kind of  thinking is, to my mind, a  link'   shallow   and   doesn't  consider another real source  of the problem.  I have not lived in Pender  Harbour long, and I will never  be an authority on the issue,  but my past experience in  dealing with youth suggests  that both the parents of the  children and the home atmosphere do a great deal towards  influencing the young person  in his manner of lifestyle.  For example, if it's alright for  the parent or community  leader to support a pusher  why isn't it alright for their  children? Or, if it's alright  for my old man to go out and  get falling down drunk and  call it a 'good time' while  he's messing up somewhere,  why isn't it OK for me to do  the same and throw a few  beer bottles around? Or, if  it's alright for my old man and  my old lady to cuss each other  and sometimes me in front of  others, why isn't it alright for  me to be a little hostile  towards you? There can't be  anything wrong with it. Everybody does it.  The same people who wind  up and call down the wrath of  the RCMP on the young  are very often the same ones  who curse and swear at the  police when they get caught  for speeding or drunk driving.  The idea that it's alright to  do something illegal as long  as you don't get caught is  a contradicition in terms, yet  that's pretty much the example the young person sees  these days, at home, in the  community, and on television  world-wide.  "So what's wrong with a little  petty theft, a B&E? The insurance companies will pay for  it anyway. That's what they  have insurance for isn't it. All  rip people off anyway, don't  they?*  There always seems to be  someone around whose mouth  overflows with ideas on how  other people should live when  their own lives suggest they  don't believe a word they're  saying. We can all think of  examples of that kind of person and while the words may  seem harsh, people are all too  often willing to condemn  others without considering  what influence they may have  had, good or bad, on the  situation.  What is needed is not a 'whip  and chair' attitude as though  training some kind of caged  animal, but a personal exam  ple of a lifestyle that suggests  that life can be rich and  meaningful.  We in Pender Harbour can  do a great deal toward changing the situation here by  first examining our own  homes, our own moral values,  and the standards we practice  rather than those we preach,  I'm not suggesting we condone the behaviour of the  young people, but I am suggesting that we see if we are  contributing toward it, and if  the answer is 'yes' then it's  time to check out some alternatives to our lifestyle.  It should be natural for  parents to love their children,  but all too often the actions  don't match the emotion. God  never meant for life to be a  destructive thing. He meant  for us to enjoy all that we see  around us, including a healthy  family relationship and a  home atmosphere that speaks  of love and care.  Let's give our children a  chance by being the kind of  people we want them to be.  Let's quit condemning them  for being what we may have  made them and, instead, become a force and an influence  in turning them to a more productive direction.  We, as a local Church,  would like to play a part in  achieving that goal, and  would appreciate your com-  ments.        H^_^^^^^_  T.F.

Dr. Larry  Albright from SFU is quoted  ; as saying, "Fish swim around  . as happy as hell in the stuff."  From here the next obvious  j stage is to get permission to  ; use/Lei Lake as their testing  ground.  .   I haven't as yet been able to  get a hold of anyone at SFU  to see if they have made application, but I'll be on to it  this week.  I'm not against testing the  stuff, in fact I think that it's  essential. I just can't see the  rationale behind declaring an  area a reserve,not allowing  thc trees to be harvested close  to it, and then considering  that it should be used to test  chemicals.  Nutty grouse.  A gent came into the office  the other day and asked me to  come and have a look at what  he called a natural phenomenon. We went to his place  down towards Port Mellon,  parked the car and sat on the  bluff. In a few minutes I noticed a bird purposefully striding up the embankment towards us. It was a male  grouse and it wanted no part  of us hanging around its territory, so it proceeded to do its  best to discourage us by pecking at our legs and anything  else we would offer as a target. There was no way that it  would be disuaded from this  rather agggressive behaviour.  At one point I even put my foot  underneath it and had it balancing on my shoe a few feet  in the air. If the picture turns  out, you'll see it attached to  this column.  Just to show what accuracy  can be attained by expert observation. The man who  showed me the bird figures it  was a sage grouse. I checked  my books and decided that it  was a spruce grouse. A couple  of days later he phoned me  back and after a lengthy discussion we decided that it was  Franklin's grouse, which is  the local variety of the spruce.  On Saturday John Hind Smith  went up to have a look at it, he  decided that it was a blue  grouse. I finally made up my  own mind and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that  it was a grouse.  Where the fish are.  The modest English flower  was not at home in Irvines  Landing when I called, but his  wife informs me there are not  many boats coming in empty.  Bluebacks are fairly good, although most of them are moving over towards Texada  Island, They're biting on ce  rise and pearl Tom Macks.  Springs fishing is good. They  are mostly deep. Some nice  lings have been hooked, the  biggest was 20 pounds, and  there's lots of live bait available.  Sewell's Marina in Horseshoe Bay reports that things  have picked up at the Hole in  the Wall after a slow start at  the beginning of the week.  Mooching with live bait at  about 160 feet is producing.  Bluebacks are numerous along  the outside of Bowen Island.  Trolling with herring strips or  blue hooches is producing the  best results.  Sinitty's Marina in Gibsons  reports that the fishing is  spotty, but good. Nice springs  arc being snagged at Gower  Point, Cable Bay and Salmon  Rock. Live herring is most  popular and available in the  harbour. One fisherman had a  double header at Popham  Island mooching deep with a  herring strip. He brought  them both in and they  weighed in at 16 and 18  pounds. Bluebacks are still  around, although there are  almost as many boats as fish.  From the deck  1 had a call from a mate on a  tow boat working up the Agamemnon Channel area. At  daylight on May 3rd, they  were towing through the Skookumchuck when he spotted a  pod of killer whales heading  into Sechelt Inlet. He counted  eight spouts. At midnight on  the same day, he saw them  heading back out again. He  was quite impressed by the  fact that they had timed their  feeding to coincide with their  passage through the rapids on  both high water slacks.  A couple of days later, he  was at the power lines  in  Agamnenon Channel watching a couple of eagles making  numerous trips into their nesting area. There were a couple  of crows around and they were  edging closer all the time.  Finally when both the eagles  were away, the crows nipped  in to see what mischief they  could get up to. The two  eagles returned as soon as  they saw what was happening,  then about a minute later  three immature birds came  along to swell the ranks. He  never did find out what happened to the two bothersome  crows. The only conclusion for  this must be that the three  young birds were the young of  the adults and were coming to  the rescue. They must have  been young enough that they  were not a territorial threat to  the adults.  Seals  Bob Barr (he likes to see his  name in print) a friend in Victoria sent me a 1968 copy of  the London Illustrated News.  It had an interesting article of  , the seal protection in the Hebrides in northern Scotland. A  group had purchased an island  in the middle of the seal hunting territory, with the hope  that the seals would realize  that it was a safe area. I  phoned up Greenpeace in  Vancouver, but nobody there  knew if the experiment had  been successful or not. It  was a good article in the magazine. From it I learned  that when seals are in the  water they withdraw most of  their blood from the unvital  areas and concentrate in the  parts used for swimming and  breathing. What this does is  slow down the digestive process. This is one of the reasons  they are often seen basking  on rocks,  so that they can  digest their food. So next time  you see a seal or a sea lion on  the rocks, leave it alone, and  let it digest in peace.  Odds 'n ends  Kelly Fredrick's dog in Gibsons recently had 21 puppies,  this is two under the world  record. Unfortunately only  half a dozen are still alive.  Ospreys seem to be becoming more numerous. There's  one hanging around the  Soames Point area, and three  were seen in Porpoise Bay on  Sunday,  Gordie Spencer reported a  couple of sea otters on Lower  Road in Roberts Creek.  On Saturday a deer made an  appearance on the end of the  breakwater at the marina on  the Indian land in Sechelt.  It finally became fed up with  all thc visitors, swam to shore  and disappeared into the  bush.  A Virginia rail was spotted in  the marsh at Smugglers Cove.  Another weird bird has  shown up, this time at Hopkins. Vince Bracewell spotted  what was either a pie-bald  golden-crowned sparrow or a  goldfinch. Has someone  dropped an atom bomb or  something and forgotten to  tell us. That's about the fifth  weirdy this year.  I wonder if I'm the only one  that's hearing about an increase in the rat population, or  is anyone else.  My continuing thanks to the  people who phone me with  information and make this  column possible. If you want  to get a hold of me call 886-  7817, 886-2622 or 886-9151.  Ta.

The Strange Bear  The Sasquatch and I  Eight years later we were  living in a much more settled  community, but still thc farm  was bordered on the east and  south by virgin forest. On the  west, just a stone's throw from  the house and across a small  grass field, was the line fence  between us and a farm owned  by a family of elderly brothers  and sisters; their house was out  of sight beyond a hill, and the  field nearest us was also grass.  The younger of the men was  what is now known as "retarded", and was very shy of  strangers, never leaving the  home surroundings. One day  my mother, who had been ill  and was in the irritable stage of  convalescence, called me to her  room and told me that this  "simple" man was standing out  by the line fence staring at her  window, and she wanted my  father to make him go away.  I glanced from her window,  which overlooked the area  where the line fence ran up and  over the slope of a hill, and saw  a dark figure standing by a  fence post. It was in a quite  human pose, with the forepaws  resting one upon the other on  top of the post; it was apparently very tall, for the a'fms  sloped down from Ihe shoulders to the post; but I saw at  once that it was not a man, for  the wind was ruffling long hair  or fur on the shoulders.

VON 3A0  ears of a bear at gaze, but I  thought thc animal must be  tilting its nose upwards to catch  scents, and told Mother that it  was a bear, not the man she  thought.  Being stubborn, I was determined to prove lhat the figure  was not that of a man. so 1  crossed our grass field and  crawled through into the next  field, looking around in the  grass for any signs of footprints crushing thc grass. The  field was quite empty and I  walked down towards the  lower fence, where I could get  out to the road that ran along  below our house. This road had  originally run close to the fence  line, but at the spot I was  making for there was a steep  little knoll that must have been  hard pulling for a team, and  when the road was graded a few  years before they had swung  the road away from the fence  and curved it around and down  the knoll.  The old tracks were almost  overgrown with grass and  bushes, but there was one clear  place where I could reach the  road. I stooped to crawi  through thc barbed-wire fence,  TOS'"was halfway ffi?ough  when, below my eyes in the dirt  of the old wagon rut, I saw the  imprint of an unshod heel. The  rest of the foot had rested on  short grass, and what froze me  momentarily was the fact that  the trodden-on grasses were  slowly rising as I looked at  them.  ROMAN CATHOLIC  SERVICES  Kc.v.

I knew I could not  draw back and return up the  slope ofthe field, not knowing  what was following me, and the  only thing I could do was to  pretend I had not noticed  anything, but proceed out to  the road and walk away. I  crawled on through and walked  in a sort of trance of fright out  to the road. I glanced once to  my left to make sure there was  neither man or beast on thc  road in that direction, then  went on down and around the  knoll, keeping my eyes on the  track in hopes of seeing bear  tracks in the dust; but there was  nothing, and when I reached  level ground thc tension became too much, and I ran. How  I ran! When I reached the stile  over the fence into our garden  from the road I fairly flew over  it, and my father, who had  come up from the barn yard  and was in the garden, came  hurrying to meet me, surprised  to see me out there and  concerned over my obvious  fright.  Remembering several incidents that happened that  summer, I think the "bear"  stayed in our vicinity for  several weeks, but we saw  nothing of it, and I gradually  forgot my alarming adventure,  or at least put it out of my  mind.

"O.K.," he replied. "Let's load  this pump and take it with us. If  We need to, we can bring it back  down later."  \Vc had just loaded the pump  when the locy arrived with the  bull car so he was right on our  tail going back to the landing.  The wind was .still blowing up  the hill so there appeared to be  no danger of the lire jumping  the track at this poini.  In less than an hour the  slackline machine was loaded  on the bull car and ready to go  to camp. But Bill had one more  agonizing decision to make  before allowing the locy to  leave.  There was 3500 feet of three  inch skyline laying up that  sidehill. To risk sending a crew  up to the backend to cut loose a  tail-holt shackle which may be  too high to reach or too tight to  unfasten, was a big gamble. It  would do no good to pull the  spikes on the tie back lines and  let it all go together. The big  bull shackle would not run  through the tree jack that  supported the skyline up the  back spar.  On the ground at thc track-  side landing wat> thc huge  carriage that rode the skyline,  and unless the tailholt wai let  go, it was almost impossible,  with what little time they might  have before a shift in the wind  turned the fire around, to save  it. But at whatever the cost, the  lives of the crew were his first  responsibility. He turned to the  locy engineer. "Take her to  camp. But send the crew  speeder up from the double  track to stand by in case we  have to evacuate."  Turning to the hooktendcr,  he said, "When that speeder  gets here, take half of your crew  to camp for some rest. You can  cpme_bijck out tonight and  relieve" the other half. We'll  keep these pumps going as long  as we can stay in here and if we  cart keep the fire away from the  landing, there is a chance we  can save the spar tree, rigging  artd skyline."  A couple of men had carried  the extra pump down into the  creek bed and had strung out  another set of hoses. With four  pumps running in the creek  bottom it was beginning to  sound like a flight of bumble  bee's. They were good for an  hour or so between fills and an  oil check about every four  hours. A bit of grease and a  check ofthe intake valves how  and then made my job relatively easy. But it was tedious  as 1 had to be nearby at all times  and to listen for a change in the  tempo of each pump. Any  change would indicate a shortage of fuel or some other  problem.  After some of the crew had  left. Frank Hoy came down to  my pumping station. "We're  going into camp now. But I'll  be out later this afternoon. I'll  bring grub and coffee and your  crew can alternate on the hoses  every hour or so. Wc may  have to use that other crew at  the other end of this fire so  don't look for a change until  morning. See you later."  It looked like it was going to  be a long day and a longer night  so I busied myself in making up  a comfortable camp. Smoothing out a mossy spot in the  shade of a willow at the creek  side, and making sure that I  was up-wind of the pump  exhaust, I settled down for a bit  of rest.  I could look up the sidehill  from my cosy spot and watch  the crew as they saturated the  dry slash and smouldering duff,  occasionally stretching out an  extra length of hose to reach a  pitchy stump that had burned  out its center and was throwing  fire and sparks like the stack of  a blast furnace. I could see Art  and Lawson soaking down a  pile of brush that had suddenly  ilared up and thc heat must  have been terrific. They were  ducking behind stumps to  shield themselves from the  flames.  They soon had it under  control and were looking down  the hill loward the pumps. 1  wondered if they could see me  in my shady nest and I had lo  grin lo myself as I imagined  Art's reaction to my fantastic  luck. 1 was sure he would be  more convinced than ever that I  would have come out of that  barrel full of breasts with my  mouth full, while he came up  sucking his dirty old thumb!  I was too young and inexperienced at that time to  know that before a storm, there-  was usually a lull; that after life,  there was only death; and that  under Murphy's law, if anything could go wrong, it would!  I came close to death that  nieht!

British Columbia Gnv'i  phulo.  WHAT'S IN A NAME, OR "A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME..."  I've heard Egmont called various names, Edmont (sic) in last week's Realtor  being the latest. Previously, it has been referred to as Eggnog by our friendly  weekly columnist for the Sunshine Coast News, Jon van Arsdell. (The Coast  News is also featuring a history of Egmont by Judy Gill.)  Lyn, who has been responsible for the bulk of the excellent layout work in the  Sunshine Coast Realtor, is coming with me next Tuesday for supper with Jon  and Lize at their home in Egmont. We plan, weather permitting, to hike up  Mount Halliwell earlier in the day to the vicinity of the Forestry lookout for the  breathtaking views this vantage point affords of "Snake Lake" (Sakinaw Lake)  and the surrounding areas. Cameras will be to hand, and hopefully a picture or  two for the Sunshine Coast Realtor will result. I'm definitely hoping to get some  good photographs of Redtop too, while we're in Egmont.  One of the most interesting names I've come across for Egmont is for what is  known as old Egmont. Gilbert Joe of the Sechelt Indian Band suggested this  name to me some years ago when I was seeking an interesting name for a film  society forming on the Sunshine Coast. The Salish word for old Egmont is  "Kwah tah moss" which means "god's country".  Few other Native words survive in common parlance. The Skwah-kwah River  (up Jervis Inlet) is on the charts, and Tsoh-nye (Deserted Bay) has become  widely known because of a locally developed course in Native Environmental  Studies being held there, the course being jointly sponsored by the local School  Board and the Sechelt Indian Band Council.  Local Historian Lester Peterson tells me that the word Skookumchuk  ("strong water") is a Chinook word and not Salish at all, and the name refers, of  course, to the well known salt water rapids near Egmont. Tuwanek is a Salish  word, and so too is the less widely known word Tsawcombe referring to the  River now known as Wilson Creek which runs through an Indian Reserve and in  which spawning salmon can be seen during the Fall.  Most of the names in the lower Sunshine Coast area, however, derive either  from the names of its pioneers or more often from the names of the pioneer  explorers of the area particularly from Captain George Vancouver.  There is often much more to names than is at first apparent, and the Sunshine  Coast is rich with names having historical associations. A fascinating book on  this topic, British Columbia Names 1592 - 1906, (now available in paper  covers) by Captain John T. Walbran is available at local book stores.  by Allan J.
