B.C. Ferries patrons on the Sunshine Coast will be whistling in  the dark for another winter, though local Corporation Director  Ken Sorko says there is light at the end ofthe tunnel in the form of  a second permanent vessel for the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay run.  Following the meeting ofthe Corporation's Board of Directors  on Monday of last week, Ron Davis, Assistant Manager of  Corporate Communication told the Coast News that no 7:30-7:40  am. sailing from Langdale has been included in the Fall schedule.  This sailing, which had been a priority of the Ferry Advisory  Committee was lost in the last minute shuffle when the committee  and the regional board discovered that the proposed new schedule  they had endorsed would seriously interfere with the SMT bus  service to the coast. The board withdrew its recommendation and  asked for, and has received, a schedule substantially the same as  last year's fall schedule, with the addition of a 9:30 am. sailing to  back up the frequently overloaded 9 am. boat.  Regional Board Chairman, David Hunter who says he is "very  disappointed" about the lack of a 7:30-7:40 am. sailing, admitted  that a 9:30 am. boat "should help with the overload situation."  Hunter requests that residents of the Sunshine Coast .who  would like to see a 7:30-7:40 am. sailing provided on a year round  basis write to the Ferry Advisory Committee, c/o the Sunshine  Coast Regional District so thc Committee will be provided with a  body of documentation with which to reinforce its requests for thc  sailing.  Ferry Corporation Director Ken Sorko pointed out that, due to  crew scheduling, a 9:30 am. sailing costs the Corporation  approximately $40,000 in overtime, while a 7:30-7:40 am. sailing  would cost approximately {300,000.  "I'm optimistic," Sorko told the Coast News. "Next year we get  our own two ferries permanently on this run. We won't be drawing  our back-up sailings from the Nanaimo run. We should be getting  two 'stretched' class vessels at about the I st of June and we can do  what we want with them. Next year, this problem should be  completely solved."  "If that's the case, we've won one more battle," David Hunter  said.  From September IS to October I4an interim schedule will be in  effect which includes a  7:40 am. sailing:  Lv. Langdale  Lv. Horseshoe Bay  6:20 am.  6:35 am.  7:40 am.  7:40 am.  9:00 am.  10:10 am.  11:15 am.  11:30 am.  12:35 pm.  12:25 pm.  1:35 pm.  2:45 pm.  3:55 pm.  5:05 pm.  6:10 pm.  5:30 pm.  6:35 pm.  7:15 pm.  7:50 pm.  9:30 pm.  8:25 pm.  11:30 pm.  10:30 pm.  On October 15, the new schedule comes into effect with sailings  as follows:  Lv. Langdale  Lv.

Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Delivered to every address on the Coast  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15<t per copy on news stands  September 2, 1980  Volume 34, Number 35  Jobs loss feared  on B.C. Ferries  B.C. Ferry workers at Langdale say they fear a loss of 34 jobs  when two new vessels are brought into service next year by the  B.C. Ferry Corporation.  But Corporation Director, Ken Sorko says he has no idea what  the union is thinking about. "We'll have two new jumbo class  vessels added to our fleet and the only way I can see it is that we'll  have 68 new jobs open," he says.  The union spokesman, who asked that his name be withheld  because of a B.C. Ferry and Marine Workers' executive edict  about making statements to the media, says he has received a  memo from the union which states 34 positions at Langdale will  be phased out by June 1981.  Although the memo did not specify which jobs will be phased  out, the union members speculate it will be in the food service  area. One member says that the fast food' type service offered  now on the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay run could easily be handled  by machines.  The Queen of New Westminster, now operating the route, has a  food service staff of more than 30 working three shifts on a full-  time and part-time basis and includes cooks, cashiers, stewards  and cleanup personnel.  The union spokesman feels when the new vessels are brought  into service, the resulting shuffle of ships on various routes may  bring a ship based at Langdale that will have a full complement of  food dispensing machines.  The union spokesman says the jobs will be cut in four ways: I)  by not refilling positions opened through retirement; 2) by an  offer of a new position at Tsawwassen; 3) by termination of the  positions with full severence pay; 4) by placing those on full-time  status to casual status.  Board requests input  A ram retires  The end of an era in water service  by John Burnside  Larry Reid and Jack Marshall salute each other al Ihe door ofthe  'ram' which they have tended for many years on behalf of the  Chekwelp Waler Users Association.  Night commuter bus suggested  Regional board directors are seeking public input on the need  for an evening commuter bus to provide a safe means of  transportation for young people travelling between the  communities of the Sunshine Coast. m  Raised in the light of the recent tragic death of Marnie  Jamieson while hitch-hiking from Sechelt to her home in Hopkins  Landing, the question is being put to the public for suggestions  concerning the need for a   scheduling of such a service.  "We all know that thc only way to get your kids safely around  the Sunshine Coast at night is to take them yourself," Director  Harry Almond told the board at their meeting last Thursday  evening, "It's about time the board looked into the possibility of  this kind of thing being established."  Almond suggested that the school buses, not usually in use  during the evenings, might be used to make several runs in an  evening between Halfmoon Bay or West Sechelt and Langdale.  Director Lee pointed out that "kids of all ages" might benefit  from such a service and Almond agreed, observing that both  young and older people attending evening courses might use the  bus. Director Lee added that recreational facilities might also  benefit from improved transportation.  Board chairman David Hunter stated that he had discussed  commuter bus service on the Peninsula with SMT General  Manager Bill Hamilton, who felt that such traffic was "minimal".  Hamilton has told Hunter and the Coast News that though SMT  has the rights to bus transport on the Coast, he would not obstruct  the establishment of a commuter bus service which did not  directly compete with the express service to Vancouver.  Hunter suggested that George Hopkins, who runs the school  bus service, be approached with the proposal. Though Hunter  stated that the "shopper bus", which Mr. Hopkins runs every  Thursday between Roberts Creek and Halfmoon Bay, is so  successful that the merchants of Sechelt no longer have to  subsidize its deficit, Mr. Hopkins told the Coast News that in fact  the shopper-bus has been running at a loss for some years.  "You don't even pay wages on it," Hopkins said, "The  merchants kicked in up until about five years ago, but there got to  be a lot more merchants and it was costing me so much time to go  around collecting from everybody and making out bills, that it  wasn't worth it."  Hopkins said he has not raised the fares or discontinued thc  service because it provides a day's outing for the senior citizens  ���who use it and who cannot afford to absorb a fare increase that  would make the run profitable. Mr. Hopkins'school bus contract  and bus charter business have been subsidizing the operation of  the shopper-bus.  "It's my contribution to the community," Hopkins said,  Mr. Hopkins, who was Vice-President and General Manager of  Sechelt Motor Transport until the company was sold six years ago  and has thirty years experience in bus transportation, said he  would "certainly be interested" in talking to the board about a  commuter service but said, "If I thought there was money to be  made, I'd have been in there years ago."  Director Almond suggested that the service would have to be  made to pay for itself without a subsidy from the regional board.  Mr. Hopkins told the Coast News that in order for such a bus to  operate profitably it would have to average 25 to 30 passengers on  each run.  "I wouldn't tackle it unless it was on a yearly contract basis,"  Hopkins said, "If the regional board were to subsidize it. there  would be no problems, but it would cost the board thousands to  run a bus like this."  Residents who wish to comment on the need for an evening  commuter bus and the possible scheduling of such a service are  advised to write to their area or village representative on the  regional board or the board chairman David Hunter, c/o the  Regional District of the Sunshine Coast, Wharf Road, Sechelt.  It was the end of a headache and the end of an era at the  Chekwelp Indian Reservation on Saturday, August 30, when a  small celebration was held at the home of Ken and Jane Sorko of  Soames Point.  The occasion was the last meeting of the Chekwelp Water  Board ofthe Chekwelp Water Users Association. Chekwelp  Reservation is a small waterfront area of homes leased on  Squamish Indian land between Granthams Landing and Gibsons  Landing.  Actually only twenty-seven of the thirty-three residences on  leased land are between Granthams and Gibsons. Six more are on  the Langdale side of Granthams Landing.  Also on the Langdale side of Granthams Landing is the home of  the Chekwelp Water Users historic headache. The 'headache' is  the hydraulic ram which for fifty years has been pumping water  from the mouth of Soames Creek up to the Chekwelp water tank  on Reed Road through 11/2" pipe.  The 'ram', as it has been affectionately or less than  affectionately referred to during the last fifty years, is generally  admitted to be a cantankerous little beast which, according to a  letter read by resident Chris McGregor and alledgedly from a  Claude Ramsbottom of Ramsgate in England to the Chekwelp  Reservationists, needs a great deal of affectionate attention if it is  to continue to serve.  The meeting was held to honour the men who had for many  years kept the ram running and kept the water flowing, most of  the time anyway, in the homes on the Chekwelp Reserve. Larry  Reid, a resident of the reserve for fifty years, and Jack Marshall of  Gibsons were the guests of honour at the wind-up meeting of the  Chekwelp Water Board and speaker after speaker paid tribute to  the two men who daily had trudged up the hill to the tank and  down to the ram or the dam to provide water for the 33 homes.  Reid and Marshall received tributes in song and verse from  grateful residents most of whom have lived there for many years  and in many cases are the children of the original lease holders.  More tangibly Marshall and Reid were also the recipients of  certificates which attested to their membership in the Fellowship  of Ram Lovers, received from the aforementioned Claude  Ramsbottom of Ramsgate, and the recipients of a beautiful  volume entitled To See Our World, being a collection pf the  beautiful colour photographs taken by a woman who grew up on  thc beach of the Chekwelp Reserve and was reputed to be the best  rainy day monopoly player in the area, Catherine Young,  daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Wallace Young who themselves have  been thirty year residents. An introduction to the book of  Revealed by order-in-council  photographs has been provided by Margaret Atwood and the  whole is a very handsome volume indeed.  The capable master of ceremonies for the good-humoured and  nostalgic occasion was resident Ert.est Alexander. During the  course of the event Alexander paid tribute to the work of Walter  Boucher, unofficial mayor of Granthams Landing. Boucher, like  Larry Reid, was an original member of the Chekwelp Water  Board when it took over from the Department of Indian Affairs in  1948 and was prominent in the 'attentive maintenancing (lid  affectionate servicing' ofthe ram until hit death a year or two ago  at the age of ninety-four.  The Chekwelp choir sang a special song dedicted to Reid and  Marshall and sung to the tune "Side by Side". The text ofthe song  appears on page 2 of this paper. David McGregor and Josie  Webber accompanied the tribute on their guitars.  Len Dayton read a poem of tribute and Dr. Young, in rueful  tribute to the troubles of life with the ram and the frequent water  shortages which the Chekwelp Water Users endured, said that he  still had in his bathroom a sign from those days which read: "For  the sake of conservation/Do not flush for urination./ If you suffer  constipation/That will ease the situation."  On April I of this year Chekwelp's cantankerous ram and its  oft-clogged intake pipe were rested for the last time. Regional  Board water is now available through the Gibsons system and  Chekwelp's days of shortages are over.  For their beloved ram the future lies in the Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum. For Saturday's guests of honour, Larry Reid and Jack  Marshall, the future holds some well-deserved rest from the heroic  labours, voluntary and unpaid in the very best sense of  community, they have undertaken on behalf of the Chekwelp  Indian Reserve Water Users Association.

If it's true  then I am delighted."  The speaker was Paddy Hilton, daughter of Mrs. Cooper, of  Cooper's Green near the western end of Redrooffs Road. Hilton  was speaking to the Coast News reporter who had just informed  her that the provincial government had just sold the road  allowance which divides Cooper's Green to her family  The road was to be de-gazetted two years ago and turned over  to the Cooper's, reputedly in accordance with a verbal agreement  made years ago between the Department of Highways and the late  Jim Cooper.  At that time residents of Halfmoon Bay protested to the  provincial government claiming that the turning over the road  allowance into private hands would facilitate development by real  estate interests and would work against a Regional Board  program to open access trails to the beaches in the area.  The transfer of the road allowance did not go forward in 1978  and little has been heard on the controversial area until Director  Charles Lee of Area C revealed at the Regional Board meeting  held on Thursday, August 28, that his perusal of the provincial  Orders in Council had revealed that a sale had been finalized last  month.  For many years thc Regional Board has been trying to buy  Cooper's Green for a regional park and the acquisition ofthe road  allowance by the Cooper family, thus uniting two segments ofthe  green, will probably greatly increase the cost of the land.  Paddy Hilton, on behalf of her mother Mrs. Cooper, told the  Coast News that they had sent away a cheque for SI 1,200 to the  provincial government eight or nine months ago but have heard  nothing from them since.  It has been alleged that the Cooper purchase of the road  allowance was recommended by Director Lee who took an  interest in the affair in 1979. Lee has said that what has happened  amounts to Mrs. Cooper buying her own property.

Mrs. Cooper and her daughter  had no idea that the road allowance had  been sold to them, they tell us.  MLA Don Lockstead expressed himself  as surprised about thc sale. Only Director  Lee, who 'does his homework' seems not to  have been overly surprised.  Thc Regional Board has indicated to  the provincial government that they will  challenge the legality of the sale. The  proponents of thc sale will argue, as does  Director Lee, that this is but thc due and  llicjust desserts ofthe family Cooper.  Oihers feel, and feel strongly that  privilege is being recognized, that the  Socreds are looking after their own, that at  least one fortune is about to be made by  this Provincial Cabinet order and made, of  course, by supporters of the government.  It is a strange manifestation. No one, not  the purchasers, not the MLA, not the  Regional Board has been informed ofthe  transaction. Director Charles Lee, the  indefatigable scrutinizes brings it to the  public attention.  Lee is not the only scrutinizer on the  Coast, however, and those of us who have  been scrutinizing the Cooper's Green case  since before he rode like Don Quixote into  the fray will be scrutinizing still when the  final chapter of the story of Cooper's  Green is written.  Lee is urgent in his self-portrayal as a  defender ofthe widows and so forth of this  world. We will see who benefits and what  relationship they have to the controversial  director from Area C.  A man as pure in heart as Lee proclaims '  himself, had better be seen to be nothing  other. Righteous indignation loses much  of its force where righteousness is found to  he absent.  Neighbourliness oS a high order  Heartwarming is a term that one uses  carefully these troubled days. But there is  no other that can be found which will do  justice to the closing of the Chekwelp  Water Users Association.  Neighbourliness which has been a  continuing factor over fifty years is  neighbourliness of a high order. The Coast  News has taken a keen and delighted  pleasure in researching the story of the  Chekwelp Water Board and the fine and  unassuming men who have made sure over  the last thirty odd years that their  neighbours had water.  Larry Reid is eighty-three years old and  has been fifty years on the Chekwelp  Reserve and concerned about the water  supply in a practical and giving way. If fifty  years from now the Sunshine Coast still  has a story of such neighbourliness to tell  we will be richer than we expect to be.  ...from the files of the COASf NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Students at Elphinstone move  into an entirely new section that  replaces the rooms lost in the 1973 fire.  The regional board accused the  provincial government of flouting its  own policy by giving the go-ahead to a  Gambier Island development on  property originally included in the  Agricultural Land Freeze Act.  Regional board directors accused  the Unemployment Insurance Commission and Canada Manpower of  causing hardships on the Sunshine  Coast by classifying this area as "a  resort area". The board noted that the  classification would force some people  to go on welfare or move away from the  coast.  TEN YEARS AQO  Expanding use of the water facilities  is the number one problem of the  regional  board.  Construction work on the extension  of St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt has  begun. The $599,044 contract has  been awarded to Bird Construction  Company of Vancouver.  Indiscriminate dumping of garbage  by the B.C. Ferry Authority at the  regional district West Howe Sound  Dump was reported to the regional  board. It was also revealed that the  Pender Harbour Dump would have to  be surveyed.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  The first issue of the Coast News in  its new premises behind the Bal Block  was produced on its new press.  The school board began discussions  on the proposal to construct a building  to house board administrative departments.  The desk and chairs used in the old  Municipal Hall have been turned over  to the museum for its use.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Social Credit nominee Vince Brace-  well hinted that soon residents of  Sechelt would not have to go all the  way to Gibsons to make liquor  purchases.  ��1BB  CCF candidate Tony Gargrave told a  Sechelt meeting that the road from  Port Mellon to Squamish is the key  local issue in the provincial election.  TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wyngaert won  eight Firsts and Twelve Seconds at the  Pacific National Exhibition.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The long expected coho run has  failed to appear on time and local  fishermen have been sitting beyond  Shoal Passage for several days without  taking a single fish. No reason has  been given for the sudden drop off as it  is expected northern waters may well  yield bigger catches than in previous  years.  Gibsons Board of Trade will make an  all out effort to aid more than 300  persons practically isolated by the  withdrawal of steamer service to the  Howe Sound Islands and isolated parts  ol the mainland.  Quick thinking by Vince Mair of  Bonniebrook Lodge, who spotted the  stalled fishboat of Kristian Westvan  wallowing in heavy weather, probably  saved the fisherman's life. Mair called  Constable W.A. Peterson of the RCMP  who enlisted the aid of Ray Fletcher  and his boat to bring Mr. Westvan  safely into port.  THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO  One of the bears responsible for  killing Ed Myer's sheep made another  appearance a few days ago, this time at  Fred Klein's sheep run. Klein fired at  the bear wounding it severely. The  bear dragged itself into nearby woods  and could not be located, but Klein and  Hector Davies, who tracked the bear,  said they believe it was mortally  wounded.  The lifting of wartime censorship  brought to light the story of several  Japanese fire-balloons, released in the  attempt to start massive forest fires in  British Columbia, some of which  appeared over the Sunshine Coast.

For the young it is time of  wondering about the teacher  they will get. going over thc  reputations of those they could  be getting and expressing  fervent preferences.  For some of the young it is  the serene challenge of another  grade level. Secure in their past  performances they move from  grade to grade and for them the  teacher is less significant. All  teachers tend to like those  students who are successful.  thereby making the teacherfeel  successful, so those who find  success in school are generally  liked by all their teachers and  greet the prospect of a new  teacher with equanimity.  For some who in Shakespeare's words 'drag themselves  like snails unwillingly to  school' the new year brings the  dread of fresh humiliation, the  accumulation of more evidence  that they are not cut out for the  scholastic life. Perhaps they arc  repeating Grade Six and have  nothing new to' anticipate.  Perhaps it is Grade Ten they  are approaching for the second  time; Perhaps they have passed  heretofore but in their burgeoning physical maturity have  lost their taste for being cooped  up in classrooms, sitting at  desks, being lectured at by a  variety of misfits and eccentrics  about things that do not matter  and are ready, so they think, for  the'real''world. So may they be  and for such as they this will be  the last of the back to school  Septembers.  Then there are ihe first-  timers. Oh, how that first day al  school is awaited with anticipation. I have a clear and vivid  memory of going to my first  school day with my mother.  although I peevishly thought  she should stay at home for I  was no baby anymore. I  remember the little blue coat I  wore and the somewhat grim  and daunting looking Miss  Pollock who awaited mc in  Grade One. She had a penchant  for wrapping knuckles wiih a  large ruler but I was good and  quick and quiet then, and she  rarely rapped my knuckles.  Then there are the harassed  mothers for whom the return to  school is a blessing and a relief.  though perhaps an expensive  one. In these days of nuclear  familites when the aunts and  uncles are scattered over two or  three continents and thc grandparents either stylisly disinterested or consigned to old  folks homes, the burden of Ihe  embattled mother with several  children to care for is a great  one and the end of August  means the lifting in part of thai  burden for a few hours every  day.  The teachers? It is safe to say  that their attitudes to thc re-  Musings  John Burnside  commencement ol their tasks is  as varied as those of thc  children that they teach. Fresh  out of the university comes thc  neophyte. Ihe best are enthused  and on lire. By the single  inspiration and dedication of  themselves will they show the  world what great leaching can  be, and so they will. Before the  battle fatigue of a trying  profession takes them, or the  harrassment of an insensitive  administration and a faulty  structure takes away their best  inclinations, they will teach  with an enthusiasm, a hope,  and a high energy which will  richly compensate for their lack  of experience.  .  If the proportion of students  who go serenely and cbnfi-  dcntly back to school is not  great enough, it yct-dwarfs thc  proportion of teachers who  greet their return to work in a  like vein. The veteran teacher,  with a few most honourable  exceptions, is generally jaded  with the thankless task of  educating the young in a world  which seems hostile both to the  inquiring spirit and the young,  and jaded with his bouts with  the aforementioned terror  system of administration. We  claim to live in a democracy in  freedom but insist on educating  our young in an atmosphere  more befitting a police stale  and all involved suffer unnecessarily and grievously.  Thc favoured few go back  secure in their own positions of  power. Some go back dutifully  but joylessly, secure in their  years of faultless service but  uninspired. And some go back  as marked men to face in these  days of teacher abundance the  surety of harrassment on the  job. possible breakdown ofthe  nerves or termination of employment. The end of thc  summer holds no joys for such  as these.  I was closely associated with  schools from 1943 to 1975. My  life was largely geared to the  calendar of the school year.  From the little boy tingling  with quiet excitement and anticipation to the watchful,  drained and bitter man who  could no longer summon up  enough enthusiasm to continue  in the teaching profession I  moved, and through it all went  back to school in a couple of  continents and a variety of  locations within those continents. As teacher and student  I went back to school.  1 am glad that the beginning  of September is just the  beginning of another month for  me now and has lost its historic  significance. But I would wish  well for all those engaged in  education still. For administrators, I would wish enlightenment and some christian  charity, caritas - loving kindness. For teachers, I would  wish energy and peace of mind  to apply themselves to their  crucial tasks. And' for the  children I would wish such  administrators and such teachers. May thc joy of learning  be more widely-spread within  our schools that all can taste it.

Housman  Slings & Arrows ��*  George Matthews  ���MMB*  MMi  *�����  tAmtm  *******  One of my favourite things  is taking care of my children.  Not, as you might suspect,  because it gives me a sense of  parental responsibility to  guide their little lives, or pass  on the wisdom of the ages or  make sure they eat right and  brush their tiny teeth; not at  all. The fact is that were  it not for the opportunities I  have to care for my kids, I  would never draw a healthy  breath.  This is the way it works.  When they come to visit,  the first thing is a tour of  my kitchen cupboards. "Dad!  do you really eat this junk?"  "How come the only thing in  the fridge is wine?" "Are you  really going to smoke all those  cigarettes?" "Where's the  yoghurt, father?" "When was  the last time you had a salad?" "You know father dear,  a good breakfast is essential  for a successful day.''  The tour of the kitchen  invariably concludes with a  shopping list so long that it  takes the four of us to cany  it to the store. A typical list  composed by my daughter  would include such items as  milk, yoghurt, cheese, lettuce, fruit, vegetables, bean  sprouts, tomatoes, whole  wheat bread, granola and a  variety of other odds and ends  I would never be seen dead  buying. No wine, no cigarettes, no steak, no chips, no  peanuts, no pickles, no coffee-  none of the sustenance of  life.  When the shopping list is  complete, the tour moves to  the bedroom. "Dad, when did  you change your bed last?"  "How come you don't have a  pillow case?" "Why is this old  sandwich under your pillow?"  "Father! Do you own a  vacuum cleaner? A broom?  How about a rake and shovel?" "Why are your old  socks in the corner?" "Why  is the bed full of books?"  Next the living room.  "Daddy! Those plants have  been dead for weeks. Won't  you ever water them?" "They  need water?" I ask. "You  know I have a black thumb."  The tour complete, the remainder of the day is usually  spent scraping away the  decay and reordering my  existence. Clean the ring  around the bath, remove that  beautiful cobweb, wash the  dishes, fill the laundry bag,  sweep the floors, wash the  windows - no wonder the  natural order of things is for  children to bury their parents.  Next, it's off to shop.  "I can't afford it," I protest.  "No price is too high for  good health," they instruct.  "Cut the cigarettes, the wine,  the junk food and we'll save  you a few bucks." "Cold  turkey?" I beg. "It's the only  way," they decree.  Back home. Time for me to  ��9��MiMfe  display my masterful cooking  skills. "No way father. Stay  out of the kitchen, we'd like to  remain healthy through the  week." Crushed, I retire to  the den. Maybe if I read a  book they will be instilled  with a respect for the scholarly  mind. "Couldn't you read  something a little more  uplifting?" a small voice  scolds, "I read that in grade 3.  It was junk then and it's junk  now. Let me get you one of my  books."  Don't get the impression I  concede meekly to this treatment. I sneak out the back for  a smoke, I pour a glass of  wine after they're asleep,  I even have a secret supply of;  junk food. The truth of it is,;  though, if it wasn't for these;  visits together I would have;  been dead years ago. My little;  girls take such good care of:  me, are such great inspirations to me and, dare I  admit it, are such good models-  of conduct to me, that some-;  how, despite myself, I have-  managed to survive long!  enough to be able to pass on'  my wisdom and learning.;  Not a bad price to pay for'  being kept on my toes.  "Dad, that's really corny."  "Please don't preach father."  "Is it necessary to be so  didactic?" (I'll never give a  child a dictionary again).  "We heard that one on the  Waltons last week."  What can I say? The truth is  that I need guidance and were;  I looking for a mentor I  couldn't find anyone as good  as my children. Ahl but you  raised them to be such good  people you say. Nonsence.  If they followed my example  they would be nasty scoundrels who would kick puppy  dogs for fun. But what about  "Original Sin?" you ask.  "Never heard of it," I say.  Despite the socks in the  corner, the sandwich under  the pillow, the secret junk  food supply and, oh yes,  the ring in the bathtub, they  turned out just fine. Maybe  Plato was right after all  maybe we bring into the world  all we need.  If my girls were grown  women and I was a stumbling  old fool, this whole scenario  would probably seem reasonable. The fact is that this is  only half true. These are  children I'm talking about;  if they were any smaller their  feet wouldn't touch the  ground. Where did they  acquire all of this wisdom?  Their mother? Possibly so.  Their father? Definitely not!  They just seem to know how to  take care of their old man.  They seem to know what's  right and what's wrong - a sort  of self-made ethical knowledge.  In any case, at last they've  gone home.  I can  put the  Please turn to Page Three. ��� .

Her recent election was  forced by former board Chairman Ed Nicholson's resignation prior to July 1st. but  the by-laws state that elections must be held for representative of areas B, D and  F on the third Saturday in  November of this year, November 15th.  Current Chairman David  Hunter, says he'll likely  stand for re-election in Area F  in November and points out  that the board will have to  elect a new chairman in  December, since the by-laws  stipulate that a new chairman  be elected each year.  At Thursday evening's  board meeting, Hunter appointed a Court of Revision,  chaired by himself with  Directors Connors and Lee, to  sit during the first week of  October so that the Voters  List may be amended to  include those eligible voters  whose names do not appear  or appear incorrectly.  Directors at Thursday's  meeting were also advised of  amendments to the Municipal  Act which provide that the  election in each municipality  or electoral area of a regional  district is a separate election.  According to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs, a recent  court case in the province had  implied that a person resident  in one municipality who  owned property in another  member municipality of the  same regional district could  not vote for a director of the  electoral area if he voted in  the first municipality.  Municipal Affairs Minister  Vander Zalm has stated that,  "Without the amendment,  the concept of permitting a  non-resident owner to vote  would be meaningless. Furthermore, the conduct of the  regional elections would become almost hopelessly complicated."

(Since  there is another small cafe close  to the hotel, 1 have had no  occasion to visit the place  before.) We reach the door and  alter much fumbling and  cursing, Grogan locates his  key. He gels the place unlocked'  and switches on the light. I doa  double-take. The interior is  large and low-ceilinged with  walls of a ratty brown colour  that might once have been  while. The unswcpt. grimy  floor is caulk-riddled and-  splintered, A counter with nine  unsufe-looking stools occupies  perhaps a Ihird of the total��  area. I he middle section is  empty ol anything except dust  while al the far end lies a  veritable garbage heap. Boxes,  bullies, crates, broken chairs,  egg-cartons, wornout clothing  and ancient newspapers sprawl  in a random jumble. There is a  strong odour ol stale food and  rancid cooking fat. A health or  fire inspector would have a  lield day but we are in Minstrel  Island beyond Ihe pale of such  rules and regulations.  We pass from this remarkable room through a curtained  doorway to the kitchen and  living-quarters. Paradoxically,  Grogan appears to keep this  section of the premises in better  order than the unbelievable  cafe. The stove and sink arc  relatively clean and he has even  made some attempt to wash the  dishes. I'ast the kitchen, is a  long, narrow sitling-room and  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  a small bedroom. "You can  bunk here", says Grogan to me,  indicating the worn couch, "but  right now, let's crack a few of  those ales. Paddy has tagged  along with me. We sit down  and start working on thc beer.  "You owned this place  long'.'", I ask Orogan.  "Well, I don't exactly own  it", Davie admits. "I'm just sort  of running it for a guy called  Axel Hansen. He's sick in  hospital. No telling when the  hell he'll be back."  He and Paddy start swapping stories-interminable yarns  that grow progressively more  blurry and diffuse to mc as the  beer grows heavier in my head.  I start nodding off and inevitably, fall asleep.  I awaken on the couch still in  my clothes, with my mouth like  a birdcage bottom. Blinding,  unseasonable sunlight is shouldering through the curtains and  there is thc sound of loud  knocking. "Hey, Grogan!", a  loud voice urges, "you going to  open this bastard up? I'm  bloody starving to death!"  Grogan goes lurching past  me from the bedroom, yarding  his pants up over grimy stan-  field long-johns. "Don't gel  your ass in a knot, Bill", he  rasps half to himself, "I'm on  my goddamn w#y!" As I roll off  the couch and hurry to thc sink  to splash water on my face, I  hear Davie grumpily admitting  our   first    customer.

Grogan  comes hack through ihecurtaih  and looks pleased to see that I  am mobile. "Bill wants three  eggs over easy, bacon, toast  and coffee" he announces.  "I'll lake care of ihe Java if you  can handle the rest. Stuffs in  the fridge."  1 wo jumps Irom dreamland  and I'm an instanl short-order  cook with no credentials but  sheer nerve. I prepare the order  clumsily, breaking two of the  yolks ami burning the toast a  hit. (irogan seems satisfied and  bears the unprofessional-looking order away. I am half  ex peeling some complaint  from the vociferous Bill but  there is only a dull grunl of  satisfaction. I guess he's too  damn hungry to care.  As the day wears on. I begin  to get the hang of it. But it  doesn't seem to matter much  anyhow. Grogan's customers  are remarkably easy to please.  Anyone with ihe courage to  brave this unsanitary bistro in  the first place isn't apt to betoo  finicky about his food. I decide.  Business is surprisingly brisk  and I cook bacon and eggs till  they are coming out my cars. It  seems to be the sole item on the  menu. During a lull. I manage  lo gulp down a plate of them  myself.  Around three-thirty that  afternoon, (irogan hangs up  the Closed sign and begins to  count the proceeds. "Fifty one  dollars and sixty cents", he  announces with a triumphant  smile. "Hell, that's enough  restooranting for one day.  Time we was getting over to  Abie's bar before that thirsty  mick, Paddy, drinks the bugger  dry." He puts twenty bucks in  the kitty for more supplies and  splits the rest down the middle  wilh me. It seems a funny way  to run a railroad but who am 1  to argue. Wc adjourn to the  pub.  The next few days follow the  general pattern ofthe first. Our  easy-to-please customers remain faithful. If we ran the  place properly, we could easily  turn a profit but invariably by  ' mjd-afternoon, Davie's thirst  gets the better of him. If effect,  wc are only working for our  meals and beer-money. It is a  congenial treadmill to precisely  nowhere. By the time Saturday  rolls around, I have become  pretty disenchanted with thc  whole crazy proposition.  This day however, brings a  break of sorts in the bibulous  monotony of Grogan's impractical routine. They are holding  one of their infrequent dances  in the community-hall that  night and from early afternoon  on, the wilderness begins to  disgorge a veritable army of  prospective celebrants. They  converge on Minstrel from  their lonely gyppo raftcamps  like a horde of thirsty pilgrims  zeroing-in on Mecca, bound to  have themselves one hell of a  shindig. Soon the boats arc  moored three-deep at thc dock  and thc place is crawling with  unaccustomed people. Abie's  small bar is bursting at the  seams and thc upstairs rooms  are raucous with partying  loggers. The influx triggers a  like upsurge in our own  business. Grogan. pressured by  public demand and a few  outright threats, keeps the cafe  open until early evening. We  arc literally run off our feet and  have to conscript Paddy to give  us a hand. Several runs to the  store for fresh supplies are  .necessitated. Finally, we manage to close the doors.  I am suffering a bad case of  eggshell shock and bacon  fatigue from the long shift but a  look at the day's take soon  revives my spirits. We have  taken in well over a hundred  dollars. Grogan is jubilant and  vows that we must celebrate.  He springs for two bootleg  bottles of whisky. After a few  drinks, 1 am hot to trot again.  Grogan dudes himself up in a  too-large suit that apparently  belongs to Axel Hansen, Paddy  and I don such glad rags as we  possess and we head for thc  dance. .  To be continued.  At the Twilight  Space opera fans on the  Sunshine Coast can fasten  their seatbelts this week for  another wondrous ride into the  future as The Empire Strikes  Back, sequel to the fabulously  successful Star Wan, opens  Wednesday, September 3,  for an extended run at the  Twilight Theatre.  Following Star Wan, almost every major producer of  motion pictures attempted to  get on the band-wagon and  cash in on the sudden mass  popularity of science-fiction  on the screen.  Few ofthe movies sparked the  mass mania that accompanied  Star Wan, and many were  outright special-effects exploitation vehicles with no  attempt at characterization.  When it originally appeared,  Star Wan was criticized for its  two-dimensional characterizations and heavy reliance on  novel special effects.  In The Empire Strikes Back,  Executive Producer George  Lucas, the man behind th;  overall'concept of Star Wan,  seems to have listened well to  the critics as well as the ring  of   the   cash-register.    The  special effects that blew  audiences away in the original  are not only still there, they've  been refined and embellished  with newer and more dazzling  hardware, but the familiar  characters that caught the  imaginations of the movie-  going world are better developed in this outing and  augmented with new additions  like Yoda, the aged master  of all the Jedi Knights, and  Lando Calrissian, played by  Billy Dee Williams, who plays  an old gambling buddy of  the mercenary Han Solo.  The characters are less  black and white in this episode  of the saga; Calrissian, who  has risen to the position of  mayor of an art-deco styled  cloud city, starts out on the  side of the evil Empire and the  arch-villain Darth Vader, but  gradually casts in with the  rebels. The romantic relationship between Han Solo and  Princess Leia deepens and  audiences even get a glimpse  behind the evil black mask of  Darth Vader himself.  The Empire Strikes Back  runs until Friday, September  12.

Off the shelf  A touch of Venus  bv John Moore  Just over a decade ago, the  Great Canadian Flag Debate  brought the business of thc  federal government of this  otherwise staid nation to a  standstill for the better part of a  year and provoked a storm of  hoopla, hype, design contests  and howls of protest from  military men, veterans and  civilians alike who found it  hard to bear the passing ofthe  beloved Red Ensign under  which several generations of  Canadians had lived, fought  and died.  The emotionally evocative  power of flags has been and  remains undeniable. In the  U.S.A.. respect for the national  Hag verges on idolatry, the Red  Cross a reversed flag of Switzerland, has become an international symbol of hope and  aid for the victims of military or  civilian disaster, thc plain white  Hag is a universal symbol for  truce or surrender, and in  Moslem countries the raising of  a plain green flag above the  mosque is the traditional signal  to the faithful to rally for  "jihad", the Holy War.  Currently, flags have enjoyed a renewed popularity as  decorative items, being used for  everything from curtains and  wall-hangings to bedspreads,  yet in order to understand why  flags retain their uncanny  dramatic power, it's necessary  to do a bit of digging in  bookstores and libraries.  If you're interested in flag-  lore, there are a couple of small  books that provide a valuable  introduction to the subject.  One of the best is The Observer's Book of Flags by I.O.  Evans. (Frederick Warne &  Co. London and New York,  1959.) This one might be a bit  hard to find on the shelves of  bookstores, but the "Observer's" series of books by Warne  & Co. have been widely circulated and copies should be  available in libraries and  second-hand.book racks for  next to nothing. Another good  short guide to flags and flag  history is The National Flags of  the World by Masaru Fuji-  sawa. (Hoikusha Publishing  Co. Japan) available at The  Bookstore in Sechelt for $4.25.  Both offer insights into the  origins and history of flags.  Evans states that "so ancient  are flags that their origin is  unknown. Even that ofthe very  word 'flag' is uncertain, for  similar terms occur in several of  the languages of north-western  Europe." Evans suggests that  flags began as decorative  streamers and swathings on  sacred and ceremonial objects.  Later it was found more  practical to leave thc object  itself at home and replace it  with a less cumbersome representation illustrated <on the  streamer or swathing; thus the  flag.  My old llarmsworth Encyclopedia supports Evans' theory. Ancient warriors carried  totems in battle mounted on  long poles to serve as identifying signals and rallying points  from troops in thc melee. The  objects were usually totems,  sacred objects thought to bring  luck in battle by encouraging  patron gods to add their  spiritual strength to the troops.  These totems became stylized  standards: the Roman legions  carried eagle and gryffin standards; the Athenians, the owl of  Athena and the Egyptians a  pantheon of animal gods. The  Vikings later carried banners  illustrated with raven devices  whose movements in the wind  were believed to foretell the  outcome of battles.  The superstitious veneration  was carried over from the  sacred object to thc standard  and thus to the flag and is  responsible for the powerful  effect on soldiers' morale when  they capture an enemy's flag or  when their own flag falls to the  ground or is captured. Stories  of soldiers "rallying 'round the  flag" arc ageless and innumerable.  The Americans became obsessive on this point and U.S.  flag eliquette insists that the  Stars and Stripes derived,  incidentally, from thc flag of  thc East India Company must  never touch the ground under  any circumstances. British flag  etiquette is surprisingly a bit  looser; the Union Jack and  standards are on state occasions dipped to touch the  ground as a salute.  Ihe history of nalional flags  can generally be traced back to  the Roman vexillunt. a cavalry  Hag which took the form of an  upraised lance with a short  cross-bar from which hung a  square flag. This form of flag,  known as a gonfanon, remained popular through the Middle  Ages, where it was also adopted  by the Catholic Church. It is  still in use today by many  organizations in parades. The  flag as we know it originated  with Constantine the Great,  who was the first to attach his  personal purple, gold-fringed  standard to the lance-pole  laterally, eliminating thc crossbar of thc gonfanon.  The study of flags is intimately connected to the complex  subject of Heraldry (too complex to go into here, but in a  later column I may plunge into  those waters) and includes  types of flags, banners, pennons, and jacks. The Union  Flag of Britain, known as thc  "Union Jack" is nol propcrtly a  jack, but acquired thc name as  a result of its long-standing  place on thc jackstaff of British  ships of war. (The story of thc  Union Jack itself, as most of us  remember from school, would  occupy at least a chapter of any  book on thc subject.)  Signalling with flags, used by  the British navy since the 13th  Century, is also part of flag lore  and an interesting subject in its  own right. The black flag  traditionally flown by pirates is  actually a signal flag which  means "no quarter asked or  given", an understandable  sentiment, since pirates were  hanged automatically and had  nothing to gain by surrender.  The addition of the skull and  cross-bones to form the "Jolly  Roger" is a later embellishment  which originated with one  particular famous pirate, but I  haven't been able to find out  which one or'why it was called  the "Jolly Roger". If anybody  knows, drop mc a line.  Fujisawa's book is particularly good on the meaning of  colour in flags. He points out,  interestingly, that the red Hag,  on which almost every socialist  country in thc world bases its  national flag, was not originally the emblem of international socialism but actually  the flag indicating martial law,  (the Red Ensign and British  Army flag are both on a red  field) and repression of the  socialist movement. All for  now.  Small audience regrettable  Video artist fascinating  by Allan J. Crane  There was a very scant  audience, barely a dozen, for a  most fascinating and unusual  presentation at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council's Art  Centre in Sechelt last Wednesday, August 27 at 8:30  p.m. The admission fee could  hardly have been a deterrent  since there was none, so either  people did not know of the  event, (one source quoted the  time as 8:30 a.m.) or they did  not realize what they were  missing when Japanese video  artist Keigo Yammamoto assisted by Michael Goldberg  of Vancouver's Video Inn  showed a selection of his  works produced since 1971.  Michael Goldberg introduced the artist and his work  and conducted a running  question and answer cum  commentary and translation  between himself, the audience  and thc artist in Japanese and  English. It is only as recently  as two years ago that video  became a recognized art form  in Japanese Universities, and  hence the artist's work remains virtually unknown in  his own country.  Michael Goldberg contrasted modern Japanese artists  who leaned a long way towards the West with Keigo  who is more beholden to  traditional Japanese modes of  expression. With titles such as  Confirmation, Breath Number  4, Hand In Water and Foot  Number, his short programmes (from 55 seconds to  13 minutes) created a great  variety of moods and atmospheres with very simple  means. Hand and foot silhouettes arc the man's basic  tools. Some of the programmes were silent while  others used a variety of  sounds one deriving from a  microphone in a jar into which  water from a tap is deriving  and others from synthesizers.  During the first programme  Breath Number 4, I found  myself reminded of the split  screen images of Norman  McLaren's Pas de Deux.  Stressing the importance of  thc gap (mah in Japanese)  the artist described the action  in Shadow on Ihe Wall Number I as: "waiting for the hand  to catch up with itself".  It was not, he said in an  answer to a question from the  audience, attempting to simulate three dimensional effects. Responses to the programmes,   however,   varied  by Michael J. Nozlnsld  The cooing whispers, the  fragile giggles, the Yes  impassioned sighs: are these  not a most Joyful Noise?  Garmentless, unashamed,  tenderly touching, a "Commitment" sown in flowing  oneness. If the coupling be  fruitful and the woman grows  great-with-child, is she then  not especially near the mystery?  In coloured pencil and  graphite, and hammered in  lead and bone, Sarah Scythes  and Gay Gordon celebrate a  reverent affirmation of sensuality. Dreamy, meditative, in  nearly mystical vivid self-  portraits, Sarah shares a  touching   insight   into   her  recent pregnancy. "Seeded",  "Locas" and "Lancallon" are  couched in colour, are strong  in understatement. Three  intriguing faces, three divergent moods yield one memorable, nearly renaissance  "Bill" and an egg within an  egg, a dream within a dream.  But the voyage ain't only  peaches and cream, and in  Ms, Gordon's massive "Separation" we find a haunting  loneliness, confusion, anguish, bereavement though not  bereft of hope. A union and  reunion, and a bronze of a  woman "Six Months" big.  Be she African? Egyptian?  Perhaps an Indian? Called  "Eternal", she lives and  thrives in lead, and I recalled  a movie "A Touch of Venus"  wherein a sculptor carves a  statue so lovely he cannot help  but kiss and thus breathe life  into her. Did my foolish lips  wonder...?  While I savoured these fine  portraits in airy pencil and  ponderous lead, a wee lad  barely walking and lately from  Edan, sang, to knowing  parents, his glee at seeing  a "Birth Tree". And those  who cannot so marvel, need  not meander. Two fine paths.  Individually distinct. Both  rewarding and promising.  Taken together, Ms. Gordon's  and Ms. Scythes' work constitutes a particularly harmonious and complementary  exhibit at the Arts Centre,  Trail and Medusa, till Sunday.

Responses to the programmes, however, varied  with the individuals in the  audience. One saw the repetition in the programmes as  taking them to the level of  abstraction. One can only  regret that there was not a  larger audience for a most  unusual and interesting presentation.  The next show at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt, Sept. 8 - Sept. 24  features two resident artists  who are very much aware of  their "west-coastness", that  is, their belonging and sensitivity to the land and environment that is typical of the  Sunshine Coast.  Pat Chamberlin resides in  Sechelt and received her art  education at U.B.C. and  Fraser Valley College. With  studio set up, she has been  busy the last few months  exploring what she feels to be  the spirit of the west coast.  Pat has spent many hours in  the woods and by the water  contemplating, listening and  drawing.  Robert Jack is native to the  Sunshine Coast, having spent  most of his life in the Roberts  Creek area. Along with Pat, he  also has a very special feeling  for the west coast, though his  approach is quite different.  Using watercolour, Robert  finds beauty in the simplest of  moments, whether it be the  aged stump of a tree just  happened upon, or someone  chopping wood. His paintings  are quiet and intimate revealing scenes that one comes  to know after a period of  time spent here.  Robert's art training came  from the Chelsea College of  Art in London, England and  Vancouver School of Art.

Band requests extension  The Sechelt Indian Band has contacted the regional board with  a view to tying Band lands into the Sechelt sewer system.  Director Gurney informed the board Thursday evening that the  subject had come up at a Public Utilities Committee meeting  earlier that afternoon and merited "serious consideration" in view  of the potential size of the addition to the system.  Gurney recommended that the band be advised that a feasibility  study would have to be conducted by the engineering firm of  Dayton & Knight, at the Band's expense.  Director Almond was appointed to act as liaison with thc Band  and a meeting with representatives of the Band, the Village of  Sechelt and the regional board has been set for 5 pm. on  Wednesday, September 3.  25% OFF  ALL  SCHOOL SUPPLIES  TILL SEPT. 15  WE HAVE THE RECOMMENDED RANDOM  HOUSE PAPER BACK DICTIONARIES.

The petition points out that "the loud and heavy language, the  .inning of car engines and in particular the screaming of tires,  iggests that sooner or later somebody will cause an accident and  lat someone will get hurt or killed."  The petition also notes that debris left on the beach indicates  lat alcohol plays an important role in these disturbances, and  lat it was while hitch-hiking on this particular stretch of highway  lat Marnie Jamieson met her tragic late.  "We have the impression that because ofthe lack of legislation,  le RCMP cannot do much." the petition states, and observes  lat when a patrol car arrives a party quiets down, only to start up  again as soon as the police have left the scene.  Area C Director Charles Lee said that Ihe problems in the beach  area "are a real cause for concern", but pointed out that the  RCMP arc not contracted to enforce municipal and regional bylaws such as the "No Overnight Parking" rule at Davis Bay.  "Drinking in a public place is illegal," Director Gurney pointed  out, "and so is dangerous driving. The RCMP should be able to  enforce that. H iring our own by-law enforcement officer is not the  solution."  Mayor Goddard suggested that Sgt. McDermid, who moves  from the Gibsons RCMP detachment to take up his position as  head ofthe Sechelt Detachment this Tuesday, be consulted by the  board, since Area C falls within the Sechelt detachment's  jurisdiction.  Contacted by the Coast News, Sgt. McDermid stated that  Director Lee is correct; under the RCMP contract with the  Provincial government, thc RCMPwill not enforce municipal bylaw such as anti-noise and parking by-laws, but McDermid  pointed out that once a complaint has been registered, a rowdy  party can be investigated under thc Criminal Code.  Water company refuses meeting  jDirector Jim Gurney reported to the regional board Thursday  fht that he had received word from H'.D.C. Hunter, solicitor  resenting the Sandy Hook Water Company, that the owners of  company are not prepared to meet with the board to discuss  board's acquisition of thc system.  The board was to have taken over Ihe system as of July 1st, but  c transfer of ownership has been held up by the Provincial  ater Rights Branch's objections to irregularities in thc  impany's establishment of Maintenance and Mains  iplacement reserve funds.  The board has been maintaining the system since July 1st and  s put an estimated SI0.000 into emergency repairs to keep the  system functioning. Planner Bill Lindsay told thc Coast News that  much of thc system is substandard and will require major repairs  or replacement when the board officially acquires the system.  Director Gurney approached senior Water Rights Branch  officials in Victoria in mid-July with a request that the Branch  seize thc system and transfer it to the board, but was told that the  Water Rights Branch "would not fight our battles for us" and that  thc Sandy Hook Water Company would have to comply with the  Branch's directive concerning the reserve funds before the transfer  is allowed.  Gurney suggested that the board approach the Water Rights  Branch and exert all possible pressure at thc Ministerial level,  urging seizure of the assets' of the system.

I received a  letter from a local resident  about yet more bags of  garbage floating in the chuck.  This person was so upset she  rifled the garbage and found  proof that it was yet another  local resident. Now really,  that's a bit much. We have  enough problems with certain  tourists who thoughtlessly  discard garbage and even  make do when they can't  find public toilet facilities in  town. I can see the advertisements of the future "Visit  Egmont��� the town where you  can sit on the dock and  watch the Glad bags drift  through our beautiful harbour." It's really most depressing.  Now some good news and  some more bad news. The  sendoff party for the CBC,  sponsored by the Egmont  Community Gub and gallantly  hosted by Mr. Joe Benner of  Sechelt and Casabello Wines,  was enjoyed by most people in  town. Last year the CBC  held the party and we knew  we couldn't hope to match the  culinary delights they flew up  from Vancouver from a German delicatessen or match the  fancy bar, but it was still  pretty good. Unfortunately,  a few of our local teenagers  insisted on getting quite  loaded (on their own) and  Pender  dump  improved  Howard White, Alternate  Director for Area A, advised  the regional board Thursday  night that steps are being  taken to rectify conditions at  the Pender Harbour Waste  Disposal Site.  The discussion arose when  Director Gurney, chairman of  the waste disposal committee,  reported that he had been  unable to arrange a time when  he and regional Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon could  tour the dump.  White said he had  talked to the contractor who  maintains the dump and that  the entrance and approach to  the site had now been improved. The contractor will  also be posting signs to  indicate the proper dumping  area in an attempt to confine  the refuse to a specific location.  Director Gurney pointed out  that Mr. Dixon is the contractor's supervisor and  should be apprised of the  situation.  51  hanging around the entire  evening just outside the front  doors.

At last I'll find out what Merv  Griffin really looks like. I  might even get to like Hockey-  if they play it with one puck  instead of 4.  Now I hate to be a cry-baby,  Rabble Rouser or a S.D.,  but my blood pressure just  went up - You guessed it,  I live in "Kleindale" ��� that  uneconomic area that Mr.  John Thomas of Coast Cable  Vision decided cannot have  TV reception. The rest of  Pender yes, you're O.K., in  fact you're the cream of the  crop - and that is what Mr.  Thomas has taken - not service  for the whole community, just  the areas presently profitable.  Why should Coast Cable be  allowed to do this when our  own local service companies -  garbage disposal, school bus  service and water systems  have to (if requested) provide  service to the whole area?  My point being, if Pender  Harbour gets cable vision, all  of Pender Harbour should get  it. One area should not have to  pay more than another. It  is no secret Kleindale has the  worst TV reception in the  harbour.  No business would consider  investing $200,000 if a definite  profit was not in the offing,  in a telephone conversation  to a Coast Cable representative, it was clear he had no  idea of the total number  of homes in the Kleindale  area, or how many future  homes are being built or lots  already sold. The company,  to my knowledge, has not  canvassed or surveyed the  Kleindale area at all, just  written it off as a dead issue -  for the time being. If C.R.T.C.  accepts their application to  service Pender Harbour ���  (Their idea of Pender Harbour) the whole area will be  closed to any other company,  which may wish to put in full  service. In fact we are all tied  up.  The company has made  vague suggestions that maybe  in a few years and if they,  the company, decide Kleindale becomes more economical they may consider  putting in service. No definite  commitment or promise at all.  In a fast survey of my own,  in the six mile stretch from  Gunboat Bay Resort to end of  Oyster Bay: 71 permanent  homes, 42 future subdivided  lots of which 20 are sold.  I wonder what percentage this  would be to the total line  strung and homes on the  Coast Cable plan? After a few  phone calls to my neighbours  last night, I am sending a  protest to the Minister of  Communications and our local  M.P. Anyone interested in  signing it please get in touch.  I realize I'm late on this, must  have been sleeping all summer.  liary. Hope to see all members  turning out for this meeting,  plus some new faces, too.  The Sick List:  Friends will be glad to hear  that Alice Burdett of Redrooffs  is now on the road to recovery  after having been a very sick  lady. Alice spent some time in  hospital and many of her  friends are feeling very bad that  we did not know that she was so  ill. But old time friend, Vera  Nichols who now lives in  Lethbridge was on hand to  keep Alice company when she  got home from hospital and to  see that she took things easy.  This is one reason that your  correspondent likes to know  when our local residents are  hospitalized or sick, so please  try to give me a call-it is a  good way of passing thc word  so that friends might pop in to  visit someone who is under the  weather.  Women's Programme:  A group of women on the  Sunshine Coast has been very  busy for the past months  compiling the needs and desires  of women in the area. They  have done a great deal of  research and it is now coming  together. They have come up  with a list of activities which is  designed to suit everyone, from  educational programmes to  recreation to social���you name  it���it's all there. No need to  spend the winter months glued  to the idiot box or being a  "Good Housewife" all the time.  Dates and locations of the  various courses are being  published so there is no need to  go into detail here. You are sure  to find something which appeals to you no matter what  your tastes. A Women's Forum  is planned for October 20 at  7:30 pm in the Wilson Creek  Community Centre and this is  where your ideas and suggestions will be welcome. But more  on this when the time is closer  to that date.  Weather  Weather August 23-29.  The forecast would seem to  be for a lot of green tomatoes I  This week the overnight  temperature dropped below  10C on three nights and to 8C  on Thursday, a whole month  earlier than last year.

Area B ratepayers meet  PARENTS: I  GIBSONS SCOUTS  ��� Beavers  ��� Scouts  Be prepared for  ��� Cubs  ��� Ventures  Registration  7 WED. SEPT. 17th. 1980  More inlo. In nexl issue  *b  by Directors of Area B  Ratepayers Association  Who Cues Anyway?  This was the general feeling  at the monthly meeting of the  Area "B" Ratepayers' Association Directors this week.  In an area with a population as  large as Area "B" there  should be a much bigger  membership than at the  present time. Your Ratepayers' Association is the  group which goes to bat for  you when there are problems  with which you may need help  and support. They deal with  many such matters and are  a very necessary group in any  area. But even more so in a  rural area such as ours where  we are anxious to retain this  atmosphere. After all - that  is why most of us chose to  live here.  There are some very important matters on the agenda  for the Annual General Meeting which will be held on  Monday Sept. 22nd at the  Welcome Beach Hall at  7:30 p.m. Membership is  open to all residents of Area  "B", dues are a mere two  dollars a person or three for  a couple, and may be obtained by contacting Treasurer  Clarence French, or at the  meeting. We do urge you to  attend this meeting.  Our new area representative on the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, Peggy Connor, will be in attendance and  will have the opportunity to  present her policies to you.  Likewise, you will be able to  let Peggy know what your  wishes are for the future of the  area so that she can represent  you well in this function. She  has to know what is expected  of her and that she has the  people behind her helping her  as much as they can. It is  a big undertaking and one in  which we wish her well.  It is no secret that one of the  main items for discussion will  be lot sizes for future developments in this area.  For those of you who may  not be familiar with the  situation, here is a brief  rundown. The area residents  recently approved a 2nd reading of the Settlement Plan and  one of the items was to the  effect that in the future when  developments take place in  the area, the lot sizes be no  smaller than half acre. While  the residents realize that there  is no way that development  can be stopped, it can at least  happen with some control.  By allowing wall-to-wall housing we would become another  busy suburbia. Since lot sizes  was a decision made by we  residents of the area it would  appear that no more need be  said on the matter - the wishes  of the people must be met.  There is much pressure to  change this item on the  Settlement Plan, and this is  why you should make a great  effort to attend this particular  meeting - if you object to your  wishes possibly being changed right under your nose.  Other matters of equal  importance will come up for  discussion, many of which  mav affect you personally.  This will be your chance to let  the Directors ofthe Area "B"  Ratepayers' Association know  your feelings in order that  they may proceed in the  manner you desire.  There will be an election of  Officers for the coming term,  and it would be great to have  the hall packed with enthusiastic residents who are  willing to take a stand for what  they think is right.

A most distinguished  Sunshine Coast citizen  by John Burnside  Frances Fleming of West  Sechelt is by any yardstick  available one of the Sunshine  Coast's most distinguished  citizens. This can be safely  said in the full knowledge that  this charming place does not  lack for distinguished residents.  She lives in retirement now  with her husband Ray in a  charming home overlooking  Trail Islands and she can look  back on an active and useful  care* crowned with many  well-earned accolades.  In these days of often  militant feminism, the' diminutive and cheerful Mrs.  Fleming has achieved more  for women's rights on the  strength of a warmth and  intelligence which are as  obvious as the moral fibre of  the woman is unobtrusive.  Frances Fleming has a  fighter's background. Active  in the CCF since the early  1930's she was a journalist for  the old Commonwealth newspaper, an organ of that party  during that turbulent decade.  In her capacity of journalist  she witnessed and reported on  the labour strife on the  Vancouver waterfront.  She remembers when the  longshoremen were gassed,  when Mayor Gerry McGeer  read the Riot Act, when  Inspector Robert Scanlon held  his mounted policemen in an  alleyway until the signal was  given to charge the demonstrating workers.  She remembers the sit-in at  the Vancouver Post Office and  chuckles as she remembers  how prominent CCF'er Harold  Winch was a 'leather jacket  motorcycle guy' until he got  hit on the head by a policeman's truncheon in the labour  troubles of the thirties. "His  father said it knocked some  sense into him," says Frances.  Towards the end of the  thirties and during the war  Frances Fleming was occupied  with the demands of motherhood and marriage. The  post-wat teacher shortage  brought her back into the  world outside her home and  she soon achieved one of the  many 'firsts' she was to notch  up in a most impressive  career.  In those years of the late  I940's married women were  itol allowed to gain teaching  inure.  "1 was hired and fired six  limes by the Vancouver School  Board," remembers Fleming,  "then I decided enough was  enough. I told them 1 wasn't  having any more of it and went  and worked in West Vancouver."  The school board ofthe time  decided that they had to  change their policy because 'it  is costing us too many good  people'. The next year Frances Fleming was back in Vancouver and on tenure, the first  married woman in the province to win tenure in the  teaching profession.  As a pioneer in education  she was only just starting.  She continued to improve her  professional qualifications  through the fifties and early  sixties and received her  Master of Education degree  from U.B.C. in 1967.  For a good portion of that  time she had been at work on  the Sechelt Peninsula. She  became a teacher at Pender  Harbour Secondary School in  1958 and taught all subjects  there until 1962.  "During that time we had  three principals in almost  as many years. Finally since I  was still around they offered  me the job. I was reluctant to  take it. I had been conditioned, you see, to think that  young men made good principals."  Take it she did, however,  and thereby became the first  woman principal of a secondary school in the province of  British Columbia.  She had only held the job  for a couple of years when she  notched up another first.  Under her guidance Pender  Harbour Secondary School,  which became the smallest  fully accredited school in the  province, developed and put  into operation the first pro-  vincially approved, locally  developed course in the  province. It was Fishing E and  it taught the sons of fishermen  something about the craft of  their fathers.  Pender Harbour holds a  special place still in the heart  of Frances Fleming. "The  Pender Community is a  wonderful place. I don't think  I ever enjoyed a place more,"  she says and there are many  in Pender Harbour who would  tell you that the warm regard  is entirely mutual.  In 1965, Ray Fleming was  transferred to Vancouver and  Frances took up a new career  in the big city. She began as  the occupational and art  teacher at Templeton Secondary School.  "There were those who said  1 was a fool to go from being  principal to being an occupational teacher," says Frances, "but 1 loved it and quickly  came to the conclusion that  special education was where it  was at. So many young people  come out of our schools having  learned nothing but a negative  image of themselves."  After two years at Temple-  ton Secondary she spent four  years as the Vice Principal of  McGee   Secondary   thereby  becoming the first woman  administrator in Vancouver's  secondary schools.    '  The remarkable Mrs. Fleming was by no means finished  pioneering in B.C's history of  education. In 1973 she became  the first woman Superintendent of Schools in the  province. She spent thirteen  months in Quesnel before  winning a competition among  superintendents and going to  work for the Ministry of  Education in Victoria.  She remembers the thirteen  months in Quesnel as months  of satisfying struggle and  achievement. "I was fighting  for the children," she says  and her cheerful brow darkens  as she recounts some of the  repressive and counter-productive disciplinary measures  in vogue among principals at  the time in that area.  After Quesnel she served  with distinction in the Ministry of Education in Victoria  until her retirement in 1978.  Upon retirement Frances and  Ray Fleming moved back to  the Sunshine Coast where  they live in well-earned  content.  Frances Fleming has not  retired completely from the  educational wars. The list of  educational groups she has  addressed in 1980 is impressively long and the list of  her published articles is  equally impressive.  This week she continues in  the Coast News with the  second of a series of articles  designed to provide guidance  for parents of school children.  The area and this publication  is fortunate indeed to have  such a contributor.  Power  Squadron  The Sunshine Coast Power  Squadron is once again presenting thc Boating Course on  piloting, seamanship and small  boat handling for both power  and sailboats.

Reading can be defined as  the facility to comprehend and  interpret the printed page. The  language of learning is not  important. Some languages are  written from left to right, as are  English and French, but some  languages read from right to  left, and some read from the  bottom right corner up. It docs  not matter. Once a person can  "decode", that person knows  what reading is, and can  transfer this decoding skill to  any other language, given thc  vocabulary and alphabet.  Some parents, and even  some teachers, tend lo view  reading as a mechanical process, something that can be  analyzed, and broken down  into a step-by-step mechanical  process, and passed on to  children in a planned sequence  of lessons that will develop an  ever-growing reading vocabulary. The proponents of this  lechnique place great emphasis  on phonics as the key to  reading expertise. Phonics may  help some children to attack  words but it must be regarded  as only one approach to this  mysterious ability to decode  the written word.  Most children who are good  readers were prepared for it  from birth by a process of  listening to the spoken word,  learning to talk (by another  mysterious process), and then  by a daily experience of having  stories and poems read to them  from a book. Television, stories  told on tapes or records, cannot  replace this daily contact of  child and book. Written language is formal and different  from everyday conversational  language. The child who is read  to picks up the cadence, the  phrasing, the word order which  is part ofthe printed page. This  preparation is most vital in  developing the child's reading  skills.  Such is the nature of the art,  some children arrive at kindergarten already reading. And  some arrive without the slightest clue as to where to begin.  Some have never had a story  read to them, or learned a  nursery rhyme. Some already  know the alphabet, some  haven't a foggy notion as to  whal a letter is. Some have been  brought up on Sesame Street,  without realizing that there  might be only a slight carry  over lo school and thai learning  is not entirely a spectator sporl.  Thc primary teachers have a  great task in delcrmining the  capacity and present knowledge of each little learner, whal  skills and interests have already  been developed.  For some children, the initial  inability to decode is a terrify-  ingly frustrating experience.  The child feels humiliated, and  Ihe more intelligent the child,  the greater the emotional  reaction to initial inability to  extract meaning from those  strange squiggles that everyone  else se��ms to understand. This  may be the first failure in  learning a bright child has  encountered, and his self-  concept takes a nose dive. Self-  concept has been defined as the  blue-print of self that the child  carried around with him. lt is  made up of how he perceives  his value and his ability to this  date, based on his dealings with  his parents, his peers, his  teachers and all those persons  who have taken an interest in  him.  Schoolingin 1980is based on  the ability to read. Some  advanced thinkers belittle the  need to read well. They point  out that 4.5 million Canadian  adults are functionally illiterate, three or four out of every  ten. They point out how little  most adults need to read, with  television, radio, tape recorders  and      modern      technology  Pardons available at  local constabularies  A new brochure has recently appeared on display at  local detachments of the  RCMP, titled Pardon Under  The Criminal Records Act.  Although the pardon is not  the carte blanche version  adopted in the United States,  it does serve a useful role in  some areas. Page one of the  booklet specifies that the Act  is a formal attempt to remove  the stigma that so often  restricts or adversely affects  an individual's peace of mind,  social endeavours, or career.  The pamphlet is complete  with an application form and  14 pages of answers to the  most commonly asked questions. They appear in both  French and English. The Act  states that no application form  respecting employment within  the federal civil service, a  Crown corporation, the Canadian Forces or any business  within federal legislative authority shall contain any  question requiring a pardon  recipient to reveal a pardoned  conviction. The information of  the offence will be kept in a  separate department and will  not be disclosed without the  specific permission of the  Solicitor General of Canada.  The waiting period before  application is possible can  vary from two to five years,  depending on circumstances.  In most cases there is not need  to hire a lawyer as everything  can be handled through the  local constabulary.  885-9666  Dispatch  Box 172,  Sechelt, B.C.

Allegedly invented in 1839  by a West Point cadet, Abner  Doubleday, who drew a  diamond in the dirt field at  Coopcrslown, New York and  said, "Plav ball!" , baseball  is a classically simple sport. A  pitcher hurls a baseball from a  distance of 60 feet, a batter  tries to hit is, the pitcher's  teammates try to catch the  ball if il's hit.  For many years the simple  game of throw, hit and field  caught the imagination of  millions. Generations of boys  in North America grew up  playing the game on sandlots  trading baseball cards of their  heroes and dreamed of  "making it to the Big  Leagues". The men who  starred in the sport were  majestic, larger than life  figures with appropriately  unique nicknames: The Sultan  of Swat, The Splendid Splinter, The Rajah, The "Say  Hey" Kid, The Yankee  Clipper, Iron Man, Big Train,  etc.  Interest in the sport began  to decline in the '60s and 70s,  however, as the fans who were  not devoted baseball nuts  switched their allegiance to  faster, more exciting and more  violent sports such as football  and hockey. Expansion diluted  the over-all quality of the  teams and disgruntled fans  grew tired of watching highly-  paid players hit and field as  though they were thinking of  their wallets instead of the  game. Threatened player  strikes and an umpire's strike  also caused disenchantment.  In order to entice fans back  to the ballparks, some of  which had fewer than 1,000  spectators in a 50,000-seat  facility, owners of the major  league teams devised several  sure-fire methods to jazz up  the game, to make it faster  and more entertaining.  Relief pitchers, instead of  trudging in from the bullpen  to "snuff out the fire" (sports  announcers didn't nickname  them "firemen" for nothing),  rode smartly to the mound in  motorized golf carts. Fancy  electronic scoreboards that  rivalled Times Square in  brightness were installed in  most stadiums to excite the  fans after home runs and to  taunt the opposition. Some  teams hired voluptuous ball  girls in cute uniforms to sweep  off home plate and flirt with  the umpires. "Mascots" like  the San Diego Padres' "chicken" strutted on top of the  dugout or cavorted around the  field to provide merriment.  The American League instituted thc "designated hitter" rule, thereby prolonging  the careers of slpw-of-foot  sluggers   who   were   spared  fielding duties and had only to  pinch hit for the pitcher four or  five times per game.  (The National League rejected  this change, a fact much  appreciated, I'm sure, by the  three pitchers who clouted  home runs last week.)  These changes, which did  not alter the essential nature  of baseball, had little effect on  attracting customers to the  ballpark but fans are returning  to support many teams in  great numbers, for reasons  that have little to do with the  showbiz aspects of the sport.  Close races in three of  the four major league divisions, a return by several  teams to aggressive baseball  featuring speed oi. the base-  paths, and George Brett's  quest for the sport's Holy  Grail, a .400season, are three  reasons for baseball's revived  popularity this season.  The Orioles are battling the  Yankees in one American  League division and in the  National League three-team  races are underway for top  spot in both divisions, Houston, Los Angeles and Cincinnati in the West, Montreal,  Pittsburg and Philadelphia in  the East. Only in the AL East  is the pennant race over,  with the Kansas City Royals  18 games ahead of Oakland,  thanks in large measure to  their marvellous third baseman, George Brett.  As this is written, Brett is  batting .407. The other day he  was at bat five times and hit  safely five times. With about  a month to go in the long, 162-  game season, Brett's chances  of reaching the .400 milestone, last achieved 39 years  ago by Ted Williams, are  certainly promising, but he'll  have to average a couple of  hits a game if he's to make it.  Just as Hank Aaron's pursuit  of Babe Ruth's career home  run record revived an interest  in baseball when it ended  successfully in the mid-70s,  Brett's attempt to achieve a  rare feat is catching the  imagination of the fans.  Though ' premier base-  stealers Maury Wills and Lou  Brock have retired, the art of  larceny on the basepaths is  back in vogue again, giving  fans who're tired of home runs  something else to cheer about.  Willie Wilson of Kansas City,  Ron LeFlore of the Montreal  Expos and other clever speedsters are driving pitchers  crazy when they get on base.  Their taunting Ieadoffs and  the pitchers' throws to keep  them, close to the bag undoubtedly slow up the game  but when they finally explode  for second and slide in under  the tag, the delay is forgotten.  So attendance is up in many  cities and Baseball Fever,  as it's called on the telecasts,  is infecting millions. Is the  game really any more exciting  and enjoyable to watch?  For the less than devoted  fan, some games are certainly  Rugby club prepares  0|  %  The Gibsons Rugby Club is  now preparing for the 1980-81  Vancouver Rugby Union League play.

A sport for the  youth of the 80's  There was one controversial call during game five of Ihe Men's  Fastball Tournament, when Ihe Cedars Inn player above, slid into  second base. It was finally decided lhal he was sqfe. The score was  lied at one all until the bottom of the 6th inning, when Ihe Cedars  tedious, comprised of routine  plays and interminable  pauses. Even at its best,  baseball is a slow-moving  game, replete with dawdling  rituals, but highlighted by  flashes of splendid action and  drama. The only major league  game I've watched in person,  a contest between Seattle and  Baltimore at the Kingdome,  proceeded at such a leisurely  pace that I had no trouble  recording every play on a  scorecard, reading the bulky  Sunday edition of the Seattle  Times and taking photographs, simultaneously.  The dedicated fan, however, finds satisfaction in, the  very aspects of the game that  infuriate others. Especially in  a crucial game, he sees every  confrontation between pitcher  and batter as a scene out of  High Noon or the ultimate  game of one-on-one. He  savours the interplay of  pitcher, catcher and infielders  when the bases are full and  the manager has called a  squeeze bunt. He feels the  tension build every time a  Reggie Jackson or a Mike  Schmidt strides to the plate,  knowing the batter won't be  bunting, taking or moving  the runner along but has one  aim only: to hit one out.  He hopes fly balls will be  hit near the wall, where  Dwight Evans or Dusty Baker  or Ruppert Jones will haul  them down on the warning  track or, better yet, snare  them from the grasp of  spectators or bounce off the  wall to make the catch. Yes,'  he even wishes for extra  innings, for the simple game  of pitch and hit and catch to  be prolonged, until, in a  splendid moment of high  drama, the winning run is  scored.  scored Iwo go-ahead runs. Final score was Cedars Inn 3,  Weldwoodl. Winning pitcher was Alex Skytte. This win gave the  Cedars Ihe playoff championship.

The Consumer Automotive  Advisory Council of Superior  Muffler has issued a list of  special tips on the care of radial  tires, which are growing in  popularity among the motorists of North America.  Here is the Council's list of  tips on radial tires:  * Always check the air pressure  of radial tires before adding air.  They may look soft while  properly inflated because the  sidewalls of the tire flex more  than on other tires. Make sure  the air pressure is set to the  manufacturer's specifications-  no more, no less.  * Rotate radials from front to  rear on the same side ofthe car.  Never use a criss-cross rotation  pattern as with- other types of  tires.  * Punctures in radials may be  repaired only if they occur in  the center area of the tread,  between the two major outer  grooves, and are less than one  quarter inch in diameter. Never  shoulder or sidewall.  * Use radial snow tires with  radial lires if you're going to  use any kind of snow tire.  Sponsored bv:  * For best all around performance and handling, radial  tires should be used at all four,  positions on the car. Radials  should not be mixed with other  types of tires. However, if you  must mix tires of different  construction, always put the  radials on the rear axle. Never  mix different types of tires on  the same axle. Check the  owner's manual or tire instructions affixed to the vehicle  for the car manufacturer's  recommendations before replacing the tires.  * On older models (before  1973), make sure your suspension is in good shape before  switching to radials. That  means making sure your shock  absorbers are in good condition and that the car's springs  aren't sagging below the manufacturer's height specifications.  * If you're replacing non-radial  tires with radials, always buy  the radial size which is the exact  replacement radial size for the  tire you're replacing. Information on radial tires sizes and  equivalents of non radials can  be obtained from any authorized tire dealer.

Sure enough,  1 saw the distinct bow of a  Mauric-designed aluminum  monohull racer. The sponsor's  large name, Via Assurances  substantiated my belief that she  was another competitor for La  Route du Rhum. Here was the  opportunity to And out whether Ppalu could beat a mono-  hull racer in light airs. I  checked to make sure both  cefaerboards were fully down,  trimmed the drifter and moved  the main a touch more amidships. She was drawing beautifully. Checking to see how close  I could come to the wind  without losing speed, I moved  her up until the indicator  needle was touching 27. No  significant speed loss, less than  a quarter of a knot. Not only  were we gaining on the racer,  but on this new heading we  could just pass her to windward. That would be rubbing it  in a little hard, so I bore off  until the needle was back at 30.  Joseph, one of Marc's friends  who had come along on this leg  of the trip to instruct Marc on  the proper usage of the Omega,  had just come up on deck from  below. After seeing what was  going on, he dove back down  below to wake Marc and tell  him the good news. Marc and  We were swamped by newsmen and photographers...more  interviews. The Race Committee officials and the yacht club  members did all they could to  help and immediately went  about the problem of repairing  the damaged bow. The balance  of the week was spent repairing, adjusting, tuning, checking  and rechecking equipment. We  met all our competitors and  struck up friendly relationships. A nice atmosphere  prevailed. By Friday, November 3, two days before the start,  the police were called in to  control the crowds. It seemed  all of France must have come  out to see their idols and their  machines. Of course, there had  never before been such an  assembly of super-fqst multi-  hulls anyWWSre onetfti1!. Some  of the world's greatest racing  boats were on display here. The  new aluminum Kriter IV, the  famous Manureva, Chay Bly-  th's new dreat Britain IV,  Rogue Wave, Disque d'Or,  Seiko (Three Legs of Mann II),  VSD, Olympus Photo, the 128-  foot monohull Vendredi 13, the  new aluminum monohull, racer  Kriter V, and 25 other monos  and multis, all gearing up for  this fantastic race.  November 5th. Race Day!  There was tremendous excitement everywhere. Even  before dawn the crowds had  started to gather around the  docks. The weather was mainly  overcast, but the wind was  blowing! Right from the east. A  spinnaker start? Each competitor had his own towboat to take  him from the dock to the  starting line. 09:00 was high  tide, and both gates ofthe lock  were opened simultaneously,  so the racers could be towed  directly from the docks to the  bay. Tied astern, between thc  hulls of Paul Ricard, was a 20-  foot Boston Whaler. A little  smaller than the tug, perhaps,  but far safer. On board, when  we left the dock, were Marc's  father, brother, Corinne, Patrick and myself. Marc's father  had come along to take the  rubber dinghy back to shore  after dropping us off on the La  Belle Jersey, the ferry that the  Ricard people had chartered  lor journalists and dignitaries,  | Corinne came on deck just as  we began to overtake the mono  to leeward. This was the visual  proof Marc needed. His doubts  were eliminated.  "Well? What do you think of  that?" I asked.  "Good, very good!" he  retorted.  As we passed the monohull,  we turned the stereo up and  shouted salutations back and  forth.  "See you in St. Malo!" said  Marc, his spirits boosted. All  our spirits were boosted,  particularly when we learned  the next day that we had beaten  Via Assurances in by 12 1/2  hours!  Finally, at 15:00 on the 28th,  St. Malo loomed up ahead.  Among the multitude of small  sailcraft out in the bay, 1 saw  the unmistakable outline of  Rogue Wave. I pointed her out,  then went to try..and raise her  on the radio, but Phil Weld was  too busy trying out his new  spinnaker sock and was 'incommunicado.' As we came  closer to the walls of this  legendary city, Patrick called  for a boat to have us towed in to  Race Headquarters. Ten minutes later a large tug, the  Corsaire Malouin came out to  meet us.  "They can't possibly be  thinking of towing us with that,  are they, Marc? They could  have sent  a bigger one!" I  4rii1rtrtt  to follow the race during the  first few hours. One by one, the  competitors left their docks  and headed for the lock and out  into the bay. Thousands of  spectators thronged both sides  of the lock, and as every racer  came through, they gave him  an ovation. As we came into the  lock, the clapping and whistling started and continued for  the full length ofthe lock. Marc  was standing on the foredeck  with Corinne, affectionately  hugging her���the spectators  roared. I felt suddenly that the  whole crowd was with Marc on  this race, if not physically, at  least in their hearts.  We came out into the bay  and an unbelievable sight  unfolded in front of us. For as  far as the eye could see, there  were boats, boats of all kinds.  Anybody who had anything  that would float was out on it.  One of the radio stations  estimated that five and a half  million people were watching  the start of this race. I believed  them; and they were all out  there on the water! Worst of all,  there were no regulations or  patrol boats to enforce them, to  keep spectator boats away  from the racers. Thousands of  boats were milling around,  getting in the way, crisscrossing in front, trying to get  pictures of their favourites. The  start defied description. The  area designated and restriced  for the racing boats was just as  mobbed by spectator boats as  those that weren't. In the usual  French antipathy towards rules  and signs, they paid no heed.  Due to this unbelievable congestion of boats, Marc for one,  had trouble finding the starting  line. Spectator boats were  hiding the markers that would  guide him to the line.  At 11:40 Corinne embraced  Marc, we wished him good luck  and the five of us got off in the  rubber dinghy, no easy stint at  eight knots! Finally, half  drenched, we motored over to  the La Belle Jersey, which was  remarked sarcastically.  We threw them a tow line,  instructed them to go real slow,  and dropped our sails. All  communication from then on  was effected by hand signals.  We were going to be towed into  a lock and up into the historic  inner harbour. Within 10  minutes of picking us up, we  were in the lock and on our way  up. No waiting, that was a bit of  luck. Upon entering the inner  harbour of this magnificently  fortressed city, we turned to  port and headed straight for the  marina. Hundreds of spectators were crowding the docks to  see the racers that were to come  in that afternoon. The 80-foot  trimaran Disque d'Or (ex Great  Britain III), was already at the  dock, and at the far end of a  long floating jetty, Manureva,  Alain Colas' 68-foot tri was to  the right of it, but in the process  of leaving the dock. This made  a perfectly clear path for us to  go in and dock with a minimum  of trouble.  It was not to be.  We were lined up to go in  between the two docks, when  the tug's captain suddenly  decided not to put us there.  "Yes!" yelled Marc, nodding  and pointing in the direction of  Disque d'Or. But the captain  shook his head and turned just  before the entrance to the jetty.  We were now headed directly  for a 300-year-old stone wall.  lying ahull, waiting for us. On  board were about 250 journalists and dignitaries. Dominic, Marc's mother, his doctor and friends were also  aboard. Marc's doctor was  particularly interested in this  race. He had a heart monitoring device attached to Marc  which he was to carry throughout the race. It had never been  done before and would record  all the strains that his heart  would be going through. The  doctor was about to get his  monies' worth. Ten minutes  before the start, Marc raised  the genoa, adding considerably  to his speed. We were all  standing oh the bow ofthe ferry  as it was shadowing Marc.  When the cannon of a warship  signalled the start, it was barely  audible from where we were,  upwind. Marc was one of the  last multihulls to cross the line,  but was moving up very fast.  Within the first 15 minutes he  had moved throught half the  fleet. Just as he was coming  abreast of Vendredi 13, we saw  him take down the genoa and  attach the spinnaker pole to the  mast.  "Great! he's going to fly the  spin," 1 said, "that'll make her  move."  It took about five minutes to  set the spinnaker. As he  winched in the sheet, the Paul  Ricard took off. The ferry had  trouble keeping up with her.  Marc was really taking the  competitors now, one by one.  The excitement was evident on  the faces of all those on board.  Please turn to Page Fourteen.  Our speed was only about 11/2  knots, and we were a good 100  feet off the wall, but heading  straight towards it. We all went  to the port side to get ready to  fend off if it came to that. The  captain had another plan,  however, he was going to turn  around and stop Ppalu with the  tug before we hit the wall.  Seeing what he was about to do  we all started yelling: No! No!  No! but this captain knew what  he was doing and gave a motion  with his hands that was supposed to instill confidence in  him, after all this was his  profession. He must have failed  miserably at geometry, for the  outcome of his triangulation,  obvious to us, was imperceptible to him. We were now  40 feet off the wall, heading for  it at a 45-degree angle. The tug  was still almost parallel to that  wall when he hit the throttle;  Marc stomped his feet on the  deck, yelling: No! No! No! We  were stunned���powerless. The  crowd on the dock began to  scream at the tug as he hit full  throttle. We were still yelling  No! when Paul Ricard, un-  verring in her tracks with her  centerboards down, shot like a  stone out of a catapult and at a  full seven knots, crashed into  the wall with her port bow. As  if that weren't enough, the  captain hit the throttle once  more, evidently thinking he  could undo what he had just  accomplished. We were still  yelling No! when the port stern  smashed into the wall. Mass  hysteria broke out on board.

Morning chaos begins as you thrust  breakfast into their dozy little heads and push  them out of the door, hoping that they'll get to  school on time. One could, of course, make  their lunches the night before to alleviate some  of that morning agony and I'm sure that that's  what happens in well-organized households.  All too frequently in our house, organization  slips out of the window but this school year I'm  determined not to use bologna and whatever  my youngest may think all sandwiches are not  made with peanut butter!

In  |j   fact, I had warned my family we would drop at least 25%, possibly  1  GfillllJIPJIPJ^^  SUNDAY SHOPPING:  The Economics of Our Case  30%. This prediction was dead on!  I You just can't adjust your fixed costs one little bit, to accept this  Ga cut, - nor can one adjust the variable costs to this extent very  IJ quickly. The  Elphinstone Co-operative,  since closed, was in  H difficulties too. In search of an answer, we decided to be open on  |j Sundays and Holidays. We were not certain that we would get a big  =j response, - but anything extra would be a help.  I The way we looked at it was that our fixed costs - taxes, interest on  H borrowed capital, key personnel wages, heat, power, electricity, etc.  H etc.. go on day and night, whether open or not. If we were open and  H did some business, it would help to defray these costs.  s In a matter of a few weeks, our SUNDAY openings became  1 popular and have been ever since. We get a fair amount of outside  U business, as well as business from local people who appreciate  U being able to shop on Sunday.  = I remember, (and still get similar comments,) people saying, (1)  H "It's sure good to see you open, - I've got company coming, and I  1 need something for dinner." (2) "My husband likes to watch the  1 Sports Spectacles on T.V. - well he can watch it, and watch the kids  jf] too, while I take the family car to your store and do some leisurely  |j shopping." A man and wife from Sechelt, "I work all week earning  the money she spends, - now I can help her and maybe get a few  things in the basket that I like."  These, and many many more have been the comments about our jj|  Sunday and Holiday services. It's needed and we need the business  to keep us going. jj|  In lower Gibsons, ours is a Special Case. hjj  1  I. We do not have the access traffic or the parking that the large m  malls in Upper Gibsons or Sechelt have. k|  II. We do not have the parking space, nor can we create it.

Pender Cable  service progressing well  This water safely group were photographed al L angdale after a visit to the Pender Harbour area.  A Coast Cable Vision Ltd.  spokesman advised this newspaper last week that thc  establishment of their Pender  Harbour cable service was  progressing well.  If all of the pieces of the  puzzle are connected according  to schedule, service could well  be available by the end of November.  The cablevision service will  initially include the following  television stations: CBUT-TV  Channel 2 Vancouver, CHEK-  TV Channel 6 Victoria,  CHAN-TV Channel 8 Vancouver, KVOS-TV Channel 12  Bellingham, CKVU-TV Channel 21, Vancouver and a local  information station on Cable  Channel 10.  The local channel will provide community notices and  weather information as well as  community programming in  the future.  It is expected that the  Canadian Radio Television  and Telecommunications Co-  mission (C.R.T.C.) will soon  licence a number of television  services to be carried on a  Canadian satellite and when  these services are available, up  to four such stations will be  added to the Pender Harbour  cablevision dial.  The spokesman further stated that "we know that we must  make our services in Pender  Harbour as attractive to our  potential subscribers as economically possible due to the  relatively high monthly service  costs. However, we are confident that Pender Harbour  residents will be pleased with  the package that wc will be  providing."  wmmmmm  Route de Rhum  Continued from Page Eleven.  Half an hour into the race, I  turned to walk up on the bridge  to speak to the captain. As I  did, I heard an unanimous  moan from the foredeck,  turning around, I looked out  toward Paul Ricard. It was like  witnessing a live nightmare.  Sitting pinned underneath the  hull, ten feet from the starboard bow, was another sailboat.  Corinne, Dominic and Patrick were hugging each other,  crying hysterically. Comforting  hands grabbed my shoulders as  I stood, dumb-struck. Marc  rushed up on deck and took the  spinnaker down. Spectator  boats had started to congregate. It didn't take long for thc  police boats to get there and  finally show some authority by  ordering the spectator boats  away. Cameras had been  flashing non-stop on thc ferry.  One of the dignitaries within  earshot made a remark. Someone translated: "Great publicity shots."  That'll all they were really  infested in. I thought. But then,  that's what sponsorship is all  about.  A line was tied to the boat  under thc Paul Ricard and  made fast to a small tugboat,  another large boat took Marc's  line. Within minutes the two  were apart, but thc damage had  been done. Marc had fallen and  hurt his hand.There wasaleak.  and the spinnaker pole was  wrapped around the foresfay.  like a pretzel. We had seen  enough, there was nothing else  anyone could do. The ferry left  to sec which boat was in thc  lead.  We had just finished lunch  when the bo'sun called me to  the radio. It was Marc, he  wanted to know how best to  repair the leak. There wasn't  much water coming in, but  enough for worrying. The ferry  circled the boats in the first five  positions, all 1 could remember  seeing was Rogue Wave with  spinnaker trouble; Olympus  Photo ahead nearby. Kriter IV,  Kriter V, VSD.and Seiko, were  all bunched up together. We  had heard via the radio that  Marc had 'taken thc buoy' and  stopped. Great Britain IV and  Disque d'Or had returned to  port with problems, also. Thc  mm  ferry turned and headed back  toward St. Malo. One hour  later, standing on the bridge,  we saw a spinnaker on the  horizon. There was only one  spinnaker like that ���Paul  Ricard's. I knew that second  spinnaker pole was going to  come in handy one day.  Excitement returned. Minutes  later we were steaming alongside her. Simultaneously, as the  ferry blew its horns to greet  Marc, the crowd on deck gave  him a loud "three cheers'. We  followed him for another ten  minutes... He called me on the  radio again: the hole was  mended, and he wanted to  know if he could throw the  broken spinnaker pole over .the  side. Of course! Horns blowing,, we made one more turn  around Paul Ricard, bade  farewell and returned to St.  Malo.  Four days later Ppalu was  towed into Corona, Spain. A  70x80 cm hole, almost perfectly  round, was underneath the  curve of the bridgedeck. Marc  had his hand looked at...it was  fractured. He had been sailing  this way since the collision with  the small boat. It was just as  well he was forced to stop.  "There is always another  race, Marc!

Just over 2,600  students were registered at  the close of last week's term  in June.  Capital projects completed  during the summer break have  provided for expanded classroom facilities. Portable classrooms have been added to  Cedar Grove, Davis Bay and  West Sechelt elementary schools. A gymnasium at Cedar  Grove has been converted into  two classrooms.  Renovations have been  completed to the Elphinstone  Secondary School gymnasium  and the old building at Sechelt  Elementary has been upgraded.  Nicholson says there are no  major changes in the curriculum but a new "life skills"  course will be introduced at  the secondary school level.  He says the course is designed  for those students who have  not been particularly successful in the academic  program and do not necessarily have a behavioral  problem.  "It's really a course to  teach these students the  basics on handling today's  paperwork, for example, job  applications, banking and so  forth," he says.  Curriculum designers have  also improved the mathematics program for Grades 4,  5 and 6, he says.

Directors of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District will  be carrying on "business as  usual' in the wake of a procedural dispute which arose  at their August 14 meeting.  The dispute occurred over  the use of the "weighted"  vote, in which directors votes  are determined by the number  of people they represent.  Under this system, Area C  and Gibsons representatives  have three votes each, the  Sechelt representative has one  vote, and all other directors  have two votes, making a total  of 17 votes.  In practice, votes are  decided by a simple majority,  each director having only one  vote, and the weighted vote  has been counted only on  votes where a two-thirds  majority is required: votes to  dispense grants and aid,  to request a new function, or  to set meetings.  In a memo to board di-  Local sculptor's work a treasure  by Joan Huestis Foster  Gay Gordon is a sculptor  and a free spirit now living in  Roberts Creek. Sculpting is a  difficult and unusual field. Its  requirements are space,  strength, tenacity and skill plus  all thc regular fine arts necessities of talent, composition,  design and sensitivity. It is  three dimensional creativity  that leaves little or no room for  error. It is also a lonely  uncrowded pursuit. Sculptors  who work in life size or larger  are rare gems to be cared for  and eoddlcd.  While studyingat Algonquin  College, Gay Gordon was  asked to create a life sized  figure in plaster. She was  marvellously successful with a  tragic figure "Burdened" and  she was also 'hooked'. Since  working lilcsizehermaindesire  has been to "go Gargantuan".  At twenty-six she has made an  excellent start on what she  knows is her permanent career.  She says quite firmly that she  will be still sculpting at fifty and  at eighty.  Her medium is beaten,  shaped lead which she woiks  on in her studio with several  different-sized iiammers. She  does nol use any moulds or  forms She shaped the lead in  sections and welds it all  together working from her own  sketches. This has given her a  beginning but she must move  on because of the poisonous  aspects of lead. She has also  devoted some of her time to  creating small amulets and  necklace pieces, carved with  dentist drills and chasing tools  in gold, silver and ivory.  Gordon's work is finely  representational and she deals  specifically with the human  figure, in sections and busts.  Her exhibit at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre includes one  complete life-sized suspended  figure which is truly exceptional and several fascinating  sections and busts. This is a  rare opportunity to get out and  see some real sculpture, right  here on the coast.  It is difficult to understand  why sculpture is so much more  popular in the Fast and South  than it is here. Many, here,  seem to enjoy having what they  are accustomed to seeing in  neighbouring homes. Maybe  sculpture will   spread   slowly-  westward home by home,  business by business and get  here in thirty years. Perhaps  this interesting exhibition will  create three dimentional vistas  for local collectors.  At age twenty-six. Gay  Gordon has made a stunning  start in her chosen field. Her  plans include further study and  association with other sculptors and then another retirement to build and develop her  own personal style. She feels  that both inter-action and  solitary performance arc essential.  Future exhibits are planned  for San Francisco, Vancouver  and Toronto. Her tough attitudes towards her work are  impressive and her future will  be, I hope, 'gargantuan' including murals and large  figure groupings. It is to be  hoped that she will keep in  touch with the Coast so that we  may follow her progress in  years to come. One ofthe more  amazing things about living on  the Sunshine Coast is the fact  that down some wooded lane,  right in your own neighbourhood, someone can be performing incredible feats with  lead and without the Art  Centre you might never have  known.

All arc at the  corner of frail and Mcdusc in  Sechelt lor one remaining  week.  rectors at last Thursday  evening's meeting, Secretary-  Treasurer Larry Jardine observed that "it would appear  that all votes taken at a board  meeting excepting the election  of a Chairman, are to be  considered weighted votes",  and a simple majority carries  the question except when the  two-thirds majority is required.  The memo tends to support  Director Lee's contention that  a weighted vote is mandatory  on all issues. Chairman Dqvid  Hunter said, "I have no  objection to the weighted  vote", but maintained that  any director who wishes the  weighted vote to be counted  must indicate that wish at the  time the vote is taken.  At Thursday night's meeting directors also dealt with  another procedural question,  giving first, second and third  reading to amendment to  Section - 2 of Bylaw No. 1  which, when finally adopted,  will provide that "if for any  reason the position of Chairman becomes vacant during  the year, the position shall be  filled by holding an election  for a new Chairman in accordance with the Act."  Procedural questions over  the replacement of the chairman had been raised when  former Chairman Ed Nicholson resigned at the end of  June. Area C Director Charles  Lee pointed out that the  Municipal Act calls for the'  election of a chairman, even  though the board's bylaws  were not specific on the point.  Lee lost the subsequent  election after three deadlocked votes to present Chairman David Hunter. In an  election of a-chairman, each  director has only one vote.

While Bert and I browsed, Jim whipped up a tasty  breakfast over the open fire. By  thc time wc had eaten, our  plans were made for the next  few days of work. Wc would cat  and sleep under cover that  night.  A few days later our camp  was ready and wc were able to  turn our attentions to the  woods. Wc left Jim in camp to  finish up other chores, then  loaded with maps, a compass  and a couple of hand axes, Bert  and I headed up the alder  choked logging road.  Bert had been so certain that  we would be able to drive up  thc roads and load logs with  very little preparation to do so  that he had decided o.n thc old  cat' with no 'dozer blade. After  a couple of miles of hiking we  began to realize that it was  going to be a losing battle. It  was going to take a cat' with a  blade to open up these roads.  But that was only the start of  our problems. We spent all day  walking every logging road that  was shown on the maps. But  nowhere could we find any  timber.  Oh, there were patches of  second growth and the odd  isolated stand of old growth  that had not been practical to  log by highlcad methods being  used at thc time, but thc three  million board feet of timber  that Craike had been carrying  on his books for several years'  was just not within the boundaries of that timber claim!  It was beginning to look as*  though Bert's desire to get us  into thc logging business and  my desire to follow in the  footsteps of Rat Portage John  had clouded both our judgements. We had jumped right  into thc deep without testing  thc water. But how could a  broker carry inventory that  wasn't there? This was private  timber but there was only a  year left on the tenure before it  reverted to the Crown. Craike  was anxious to have it logged  and we were anxious to do it.  But we had to find thc timber  first!  We had been hiking all day,  following old tree blazes and  looking for bearing trees to  make sure we were within the  boundaries of the claim. We  had gone beyond the boundaries in thc hope we could be  wrong. We had climbed knolls  and ridges for a view of the  country side and I had even  climbed a tree looking for the  high crowns of standing timber, hut to no avail.  Wc were back at a corner  post, not knowing where to  turn next. There was only one  :hing to do. Find a spring for a  drink, sit down and roll a  smoke and face.up to the truth.  Wc were in too deep to pull out  now. There were small patches  of nice second growth and a few  stands of old growth that could  produce some peeler fir. This  was the cream of the crop and  even on present markets could  bring up to $8 per thousand  board feet. Some ofthe logs we  had looked at that day could be  worth up to $25 each.  We began to retrace our  steps of the day and look for the  most accessible timber that  would put us into business in a  hurry. We had agreed with  Craike that we wouldn't be  bugging him for money until  we had wood in the water and  we had no other source of  funds.  The few barrels of gas we had  brought in with us was going to  have to do until we had a boom  in the water and ready for  scaling. Our supply of grub  would have to make do for  Bert, Jim and I and the two  Callers we had arriving in the  next few days. They were going  to be tough and squeaky times  in the weeks that lay ahead but  we were committed and it was a  case of sink or swim. We were  determined not to sink!  As we hiked into camp that  night I thought ofthe warning  that Rat Portage John had  given me. "Stay away from the  gyppo's���stick to the big  outfits!"  I was often to regret that 1  had not heeded his.warning!  To be continued.

Ferry workers union dispute  leaves workers leaderless  New Gibsons harbour manager, Leonard Plourde, says he's  planning a cleanup campaign  on the village-leased docks.  Plourde, 47, of Davis Bay,  replaces Gary White of Gibsons, who held the job for two  years.  A general cleanup of the  docks and the removal of  unused vessels will make the  harbour more attractive to  visitors and locals alike, says  Plourde. "There are some boats  berthed here that haven't been  untied for years. 1 feel the docks  can no longer be used as a  storage area," he says.  Plourde , a native of New  Brunswick, has been a resident  of thc Peninsula "off and on"  since 1973. He moved here  recently from Maryland where  he was involved in an electronics business.  The job of harbour manager  is entirely new to Plourde but  he says as the owner of a 23-  foot vessel and an avid sports  fisherman he feels he can work  together with other boat owners and regular users of the  wharves to accomplish. the  cleanup.  He also plans to change the  bookkeeping system to enable  the regular users to pay th_eir  docking fees in advance for a  longer period of time.  by Kirk Brown  Almost half thc 2,600 members of the B.C. Ferry and  Marine Workers Union are  without elected representation  after the latest political skirmish among rivalling factions  within the union.  The executive and shop  stewards at Langdale, Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay  have resigned their posts in the  union hierarchy to protest a  special union committee decision finding Robin Holmgren, former chaiirauil of Local  2, Departure Bay. guilty of  assaulting union president  Shirley Mathieson.  Union members have been  forbidden by their leaders to  make statements to the media,  but several union members  agreed to make comment when  contacted by the Coast News if  Iheir names were withheld.  The members who were  willing to talk say they had  been warned that anyone  making statements would face,  severe disciplinary action. One  member said it could mean thc  loss of his job.  Holmgren was found guilty  of thc alleged offence by a  special union committee which  recommended he be stripped of  his local presidency and every  privilege a union member  normally enjoys. The union's  executive committee, headed  by president Mathieson,  agreed. Holmgren was allowed  lo keep his union card to permit  him to keep his job as a ferry  worker.  Union members say the  executive's move was a 'political hatchet job' of thc worst  kind and thc special committee  which tried  Holmgren was a  'kangaroo court".  According to a copy of the  committee's report made to thc  executive, thc alleged assault  on the union president was so  minor that an apology would  have buried the issue  Union president Mathieson  is on vacation and could not be  contaclcd for comment. Vice-  president Andy McKechnic has  declined to discuss the case. He  said the executive committee  decided not to make any press  statements since Ihe Holmgren  case was an internal union  mailer.  Union spokesmen al the  Ihree locals are waiting for the  executive 'lo do something'.  One member says thc executive  has several choices bul has not  taken any action. The executive  committee could call for by-  elections at Ihe three terminals  or appoint a business agent to  handle the affairs of the union  members.  Without elected representation, union members have no  mechanism available to file  grievances, but the union could  appoint a business agent for  that purpose. A spokesman for  the 200-member Local at  Langdale says there are no  grievances at thc moment,  although there arc some complaints.  There are a total of 16 Locals  in the B.C. Ferry and Marine  Workers Union, each having  one member of its local executive represented on thc  senior executive committee.  Ihe local executives at Local 5,  Langdale, Local 4.

After three years of gravel  coming down Angus Creek  from the hillside above Porpoise Bay, thc fisheries, with  funding from the Salmonid  Enhancement Program have  found it necessary to clean  up. the stream bed with bulldozers.  Last winter we had an  exceptionally heavy rainfall  and the mouth of the creek  changed course and began on  its way through the park area  where the soil is subject to  easy erosion. If things were  left the way they are, it could  only get worse this fall...  Angus Creek has a large  run of chum (dog) salmon  starting in September. The  eggs deposited near the  mouth of the stream have  been lost under a layer of  , September 2,1980  gravel, so there's nothing to  lose by running heavy machinery up the bed to rectify  the situation.  Personally I'm glad to see  that something is being done.  I've been making it one of my  annual safaris to walk along  the creek and watch the  salmon running. Over the past  four years, I've been slightly  disappointed when I return  later in the winter to find that  nature, with a bit of help from  its human friends has deposited a layer of gravel  over the eggs and smothered  them.  Richard Eliaser, an engineer with fisheries has been  working with the local fisheries officers to bring the  creek back again. Even after  the work is completed, it will  take about five years for the  stream to flush itself clean.  One idea is to dig a catching  pond above where the salmon  spawn. This would be effective, but would still be a  short term solution, as it  would require periodic dredging. The best solution is to  stop the erosion at the source,  but at the moment this is  easier said than done.  According to fisheries, the  salmon could start up the  creek as early as the first  half of September. They hope  to have the work completed  in time for this.  A salty tale.  Les Peterson was telling me  that he had noticed a press  clipping about Jaques Cou-  steau finding a salt water  arctic sea below the surface of  a lake in Quebec, where they  are presently based.  What is interesting on the  local level, is that the name of  the lake is Saguenay Lake,  note the similarity of the name  with our own Sakinaw Lake.  Sakinaw also is said to be  salty if you go down deep  below the surface. The name  Sakinaw means, the lake  which is level with the sea.  This happens in Sakinaw  during a high tide. According  to Les there used to be crayfish in the lake, although he's  not sure if this is still the case.  Proof of this can be found at  the end of the lake where a  crayfish is depicted on one of  the rock paintings.  I was interested in learning  about the salt content in the  lake, but what caught Les'  attention was the similarity  between the two lakes and the  two names. Both names are  derived from the Indian  language used locally, both  are almost identical in pronunciation and both are  thousands of miles apart.  When the flab are.  Last week the best fishing  was from the Horseshoe Bay  area, then it dwindled as it  went further north. The  opposite is true this week.  Sewell's report things slowing down over the weekend.  There are small coho around.  You'll probably have most  luck at Passage Island or Seal  Rocks. For springs in the 10 to  IS pound range, have a try at  the mouth of the Capilano  River, that's if the traffic jam  will allow you.  Hyak in Gibsons had people  limiting on coho at Gower  Point on Saturday, but on the  whole they are few and far  between. Some winter springs  up to 15 pounds are showing  up at Worlecombe Island, try  mooching for them.  Hugh at Lord Jims saw  quite a few cohos come in from  Merry Island on Friday and  Pirate rock fishing will give  you about a 25% chance of not  getting skunked. He figures  that your best bet is to go for  spring in the gap at Thor-  manby Island. They are in the  14 to 18 pound range, with  one tipping the scales at 20'/i  pounds.  The top end of the Pender  area has the most promising  report. In the immortal words  of Maurice at Irvine's Landing, "it's not too bad."  Northern cohos up to 14  pounds are showing up at  Francis Point which gets the  top marks for this week.  Other sports where you can  expect to come home with  more than your bait are,  Ackland Rock, Scotch Fir and  the north end of Lasqueti.  Both live and strips are  showing good results.  An oversight.  Last week I wrote about the  famous Carroll/Corrance  chicken ranch. It was pointedly pointed out to me that I  had forgotten to mention our  marketing expert Crystal Geh-  ring, so I've done it now. I  can't stand the long silences  and cold stares. While I'm  at it I better throw in the eggs  president  of  the  company,  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Here we are back at the  Coast after a turbulent flight  through the thunder storms of  the rugged passes that pierce  the rocky barrier of the Cascade Mountains.

Ta.  return to the briny smell ofthe  salt chuck when the tide is out  but I must say that the weather  is more suitable for 'maht-  maht' the duck than Chak-  Chak the eagle.  It only takes a short trip  away from the coast to make  one realize how fortunate wc  are to have such a variety of  seafood available to us. The  majority of our people do not  however take advantage of this  variety.  How many of you, the  readers of this column, would  be pleased to catch a skate  while fishing for salmon or  purchase a piece of skate if you  saw it in the fish market? Not  too many 1 would wager and  yet this is delicious and unique  kind of fish.  The skate is a member ofthe  ray family. The species comprising this broad category offish  all possess a cartilaginous  skeleton and scales when  present resemble small teeth or  hooks. This cartilage makes thc  skate a very attractive form of  seafood for the person who  does not like the small bones  that are common to most fish.  In order to prepare this  diamond shaped flat fish one  must cut off the wings and  remove the skin, then cut the  meat into portions suitable for  pan frying or poaching. When  cooked the meat separates  from the cartilage very easily  and if you have strong teeth the  cartilage may be eaten also.  When pan-fried and served  cold skate is just like chicken.  I do not know the origin of  the term 'cheap skate", it may  have something to do with the  fact that skate is very low in  price and is a real bargain for  such a delicious high protein  food. I was very fortunate to  obtain about .10 lbs. from Doug  of the 1:.V. Elusive Quest which  he was selling lor 50 cents per  Ib. I now have it in about 2-3 Ib.  portions in our deep freeze,  I have yet lo find a restaurant  that has skate on its menu. 1 am  sure that this could change  however if this variety of fish  became more popular with the  people in this area.

Reaction to this  came from shake and firewood  cutters who were out of work  as they were waiting for both  alder and cedar claims to be  given final approval from the  Forestry. Their contention is  that alder is a valuable  commercial tree and as such,  should be harvested not  poisoned.  To arrive at a better understanding of the chemical  2,4-D, Merriam Doucet from  I'ort Moody came to Gibsons  and met with local wood  cutters David Forsner, Bruce  Andreeff and their families.  Both parties agreed that  while the hack and squirt  program looked relatively  cheap on paper, there were  many hidden costs. Forsner  habitually hired up to 13  people locally. At the present  time, the crew were either on  unemployment insurance or  on welfare. Although it does  not come up on the debit side  of the forestry's ledger, this,  plus research into use of  chemicals and defence of  their use, make but three of  these hidden costs.  Doucet came prepared with  a briefcase full of chemical  horror stories. 2,4-D has been  accused of causing birth  defects and cancer. A study  shows that foresty and agricultural workers' chances of  being adversely affected by  the chemical are six times  greater than those of the  general public.  This would appear to be corroborated by a 197S report by  Dr. Dianne Courtney from the  U.S. Environmental Protection Association. Courtney  states that "In general, the  greatest effects of 2,4-D  were produced by low dosages  over a long period."  Chemicals also appear as  the villains in another type of  physical disorder. The following press release dated  October 1979, "fna/ appear  sensational, but should not go  unnoticed. It reads: 'A Florida  researcher claims that American men may become completely sterile within the next  50 years.  A new study, conducted at  Florida State University in  Tallahassee by Dr. Ralph  Dougherty, indicates that the  fertility of American men has  declined by one-third since  1929 and by 15 per cent  over the last five years.  Dr. Dougherty blames chemical pollutants for the  problem.  All semen samples taken  from 132 volunteer students in  the test were contaminated  with low level traces of toxic  substances, he said.  Of the study group, 23 per  cent of the subjects who participated in the tests were  sterile.'  Reports of this nature,  strengthened the resolve of  the others present to look into  the possibility of alternative  methods to the hack and  squirt, both for employment  and, as they worked in the  forest, for their health.  A firewood cutter who could  not be present, but wished his  views to be heard, wrote: "I  make my living by selling  cords of firewood, mainly  alder. The idea of these trees  being killed with a possibly  dangerous chemical and  wasted does not seem right'  to me. With everyone buying  wood stoves and needing firewood, alder is becoming  harder to find. Therefore how  can anyone in good conscience  THE ALDERS  The alders are the rcoccupiers ���  they come easily  and quick into skinned land  rising like an ambush  on raked ridges ���  jobbing like whiskers up through the washedoul  Hues of neverused roads.  The alders are the forestfixers  bandaging brown wounds  with applegreen sashes ���  lilling in for the fallen  firs ���  jostling up hy the sttmtps  of grandfather cedars ���  leaning slim to the wind  by logjammed  loggerlefl streams.  The alders are thc encroaclters  seizing ground the greater trees owned  once  but no more.  It is the time of the alders  they come  like a bright upstart army  crowding the deadwood spaces  reaching  al last for thc hand of thc whole  unshadowed sun.

A weed species, or a viable commodity?  Smaller harvesters need support  A new piece of information'  regarding wood harvesting,  came to light while Andreeff  was in consultation with the  Sechelt Forestry. Until recently there have been two  types of claims: Quota ( standing) wood, which goes up  for tender; and dead and down  wood historically has gone to  the applicant providing there  was no competition for it.  The two types of claims now  go through the same procedure, After clearance they  must be published in the  government Gazette and, from  there, go out to tender. This  is a policy change from Vancouver and affects shake  claims dated after September  1st 1979.  More information on this  can be obtained from the local  forestry station.  The difference in wood  utilization between the forest  industry in North America  and that in other parts of the  world would seem to be  caused by the plentitude of  wood in the forest and the  immensity of the areas involved. This does not, how  ever, necessarily mean that  small enterprise willing to  utilise what the larger companies would feel to be  unprofitable should not be  encouraged.  Although smaller applications are not discouraged by  the forestry, they are in a  Catch 22 situation. When  applying for a shake claim  or a firewood cutting permit,  the gypo logger has to go  through the same barrage of  red tape as the big boys.  This is fair, but it does put the  smaller operators at a disadvantage. Whereas the large  companies go for an overall  clearance on a whole area then  apply for individual cutting  permits as they proceed, the  small companies do not have  the resources to make blanket  applications and must go  through the whole procedure  every time, taking upwards of  six months for each clearance.  Perhaps if we wish to take  the alders off the list of weed  species and reclassify it as a  valuable marketable wood, the  small operator should be  given some assistance.  condone the use of a chemical  that could be very dangerous  to the environment, merely to  kill trees that have a very real  value. I object to the waste,  but mainly I object to the fact  that the money aspect comes  first and the safety of the  environment last." Signed:  Jim Harding.  Apart from its use as firewood, alder can be used as  a source of charcoal, creosote  and alcohol. At one time alder  from the Sunshine Coast was  in demand by the Hammond  furniture company in Vancouver, and tentative enquiries from another Vancouver furniture company  indicates that the market is  still available. Those present  also felt that killing the  trees where they stand would  represent a future fire hazard  (another hidden cost) whereas  harvesting them would eliminate this possibility.

The four month wonder  that his amendment will give  legal effect to thc moratorium.  Yet it makes no reference to the  seven year period mentioned by  Bennett at his February press  conference.  Worst of all, the amendment  allows the chief inspector of  mines to give the go ahead to  uranium mining and exploration at any time. Needless to  say, the real decision will rest  with the minister.  The^govewment' cletwly  wants to give itself an escape  hatch. They have had ample  opportunity to introduce binding legislation during thc  session but have failed to do so.  The NDP will introduce an  amendment incorporating the  government's own promises for  a moratorium. If it fails, the  public will know that Bennett's  moratorium was a public  relations gesture without substance.  The Four Month Wonder  The seven year moratorium  on uranium mining and exploration has lasted four  months. Premier Bennett has  failed to deliver on the firm  promise he made on February  27.  The moratorium on exploration announced in February  was a moratorium by press  conference. Order-in-council  442 simple wound up the Bates  Commission under authority  of the Publice Inquiries Act.  The NDP welcomed and  supported the decision to ban  uranium mining from the  province. We anticipated that  the government would embody  its policy in binding legislation.  Instead, after almost two  months delay, Energy and  Mines Minister Bob McClelland passed a regulation under  the authority of section 8 ofthe  Mineral Act. The order stated  that no miner shall locate or  record a mineral claim in  respect of uranium.  The regulation does not  achieve its purpose because a  mineral claim is not made in  respect of any particular mineral. Furthermore, it can be  lifted by the government at any  time.  On August 11 it became  apparent that this ineffectual  four-month long moratorium  was to be further weakened.  McClelland introduced an  amendment to Bill 39, the  Mines Act, which allows the  government to bring back  uranium mining and exploration through the back door.  McClelland told thc House  Wilderness  programme,  offered   1  For those who wish t��r  confront the wilderness paiiaj  lessly, and with maximt^t  enjoyment, Greg Miller vm  offer a series of courses, i>{  varying duration.  Several one-session courses  have been organized. Outdoor  First Aid will be taught at  Elphinstone, Room 108, September 22, Monday at 7:30  p.m. Students interested in  Outdoor Survival will meet at  Elphinstone, Rm. 108, September 29, Monday, at 7:30  p.m. Map and Compass  Reading will be offered at  Elphinstone, Rm. 108, October 6 Monday, at 7:30 p.m.  Thc place and time of Canoeing Safety, including lecture and pool experience will  be available at registration  after September 10.  A safety-oriented First Aid  Course (2 sessions) will allow  students to earn the basic  St, John's Ambulance certificate. The Elphinstone course will run September 17 and  18, Wednesday and Thursday  6-10 p.m. with the Chatelech  course, September 23 and 24,  Tuesday and Wednesday 6-10  p.m. Students are free to  interchange location, attending one session in each  school, if that is more convenient.  A happy combination of one  lecture and two 6'/i hour day  trips will give the novice  canoe experience on fresh and  salt flat water. The Basic  Canoeing class will meet at  Chatelech, Rm. 112, September 25, Thursday from  7:30-9:30 for the theory  session.

Some of the courses have  limited enrolment, and as they  are expected to be of considerable interest, it is recommended to register at  least three days before the '  opening class.  Diabetes group forming  Diabetes is an extremely  common chronic condition  affecting approximately 5  percent of thc population.  lt is estimated that between  95,000 and 110,000 British  Columbians and their families  are affected by diabetes.  Diabetes is a disorder which,  when untreated, results in an  elevated blood sugar level.  Heredity is the basic cause of  diabetes, but environmental  factors such as overweight,  stress, heaft attacks, viruses,  etc. must be present to trigger  the onset of diabetes. It is  estimated that 25 percent ofthe  population is genetically predisposed to diabetes.  There is no known cure for  diabetes but there are several  treatments. In those diabetics  whose pancreases produce no  insulin, daily injections of  insulin are used to supply this  lack. In diabetics whose pancreases do not produce enough  insulin, oral medication or  proper diet may be used to  The Chekwelp 'ram' is headed for honourable retirement in  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  and children's camps for diabetics.

Without good control diabetes becomes thc third major  killer disease in Canada as a  result of the many complications which may occur, such  as blindness, kidney failure,  gangrene and cardio-vascular  complications.

Interest rates for mortgages have dropped faster than have the  rates for other types of loans because of public pressure, but it appears  that they are now stabilizing with mortgage rates now higher than  prime where two months ago they were in the unusual position of being  below prime.  The Manager of one local lending institution contacted by the Sunshine  Coast Realtor felt that the rates would be likely to go up in the Fall. He "^��  said that term deposits paying rates of 15% are now becoming due, and  that investors who had been receiving rates of that magnitude for their  money were not reacting favourably to lower interest rates, in the order  of 10% which are currently being offered.  For the present, however, mortgage funds are in good supply locally.  Rates and terms vary between lenders, and borrowers seeking  mortgage funds are advised to shop around.
