 Victoria C  LEGISLATIVE LltWARY  Parliament Buildings.  VICTORIA. B.C  82 l  s battle rent increases in Gibsons  VSV 1X4  by Fran Bourassa  Twenty-four tenants from the Maple Crescent Apartments on  School Road in Gibsons gathered at a public hearing to protest  and appeal a 25% rent increase on Wednesday at the Legion Ha'l.  Eleanor Ramsdale from the Rentalsman Office in Vancouver,  acted as mediator between the tenants and the representatives of  Paz Holdings Limited, the owners of the building, Vera Jovic and  Adrian Mastracci, in an effort to review both sides ofthe matter.  In an application to the Rentalsman Office for a rent increase  the owners stated "that in order to operate and maintain the  buildings in the manner our tenants are accustomed to, we are  submitting a 13% increase in addition to the allowable 10%  increase in rents".  The reasons cited were said to be a 31.4% increase in operating  costs including heating fuel, taxes, cablevision and repairs.  "We wouldn't mind paying the increase," said a spokesman for.  the tenants, "if there was maintenance and upgrading done to the  building. But based on the past record ofthe landlords, that seems  highly unlikely since the manner to which we are accustomed' has  been a constant state of disrepair".  "You are asking us to pay your increase in fuel prices, but in  effect we are paying for heat we are not getting. Some of us had no  heat in our apartments for the whole month of November while in  other apartments people couldn't turn it off," said another tenant  "You are wasting energy as well as our money. There is high heat  loss in the building, windows that don't shut properly and a  continually malfunctioning heating system."  Another tenant who said he had experience with hot water  systems told the mediator, "The hot water heater in the building is  inadequate for the work load it is required to do and in many  apartments, when there is hot water, we watch it runningdown the  drain."  The major bone of contention raised by the majority of the  tenants was the inability to get minor repairs made.  "I've been chasing the caretaker for a year and a half, I'm getting  really tired of it," said a spokesman.  "It isn't as if the managers or caretakers have not been made  aware of our problems either. They did a survey of each apartment  last fall and were given a list of all the problems. Very little has  been done."  The mediator was given a dozen letters from those tenants who  could not attend the meeting and verbal complaints about the  poor heating, hot water shortages and'faulty wiring were voiced  by those present. One tenant cited the particular case in his  apartment of a floor caving in, and another told ofthe telephone  repairman who found lines chewed through by resident rats.  I he tenants complained of the lack of sufficient laundry  facilities, guest parking, and garbage disposal facilities.  he tenants found a few clauses in the application for rent  increase by the owners insulting.  ' As a vote of confidence 28 out of 34 tenants have already paid  for the total proposed rent increase...and commented favourably  on Ihe upgrading that has been carried out in the building," said  the application. The tenants replied with a show of hands that this  comment was the opinion of none.  The comparison made of the Maple Crescent Apartments to a  "building in close proximity" (the Executive Suites) to whose rent  Maple Crescent would match after the increase, brought about  thia comment from the tenants, "It's like comparing the slums to  executive housing. They have wall-to-wall carpeting, a security  system, guest parking and an attractive, well-maintained  building."  A few other discrepencies were found in the application. Rent is  determined by a price set on the square footage ofthe apartments.  A t 'vo-bedroom currently rents for 26c per square foot and is said  to be 900 square feet. In actuality the footage, as measured by a  tenant, only proved to be 760 square feet.  "The area is 30% less than what we are paying for," said the  tenant. Paz Holdings Limited representatives had little to say to  the complaints of the tenants other than that the new caretakers of  the building should be notified of the problems and that all will be  rectified in time. They reiterated the need to increase the rents due  to the higher operating costs and particularly oil heating price  hikes.  At the end of the meeting Ramsdale was asked by a tenant if  there was a policy which states that a landlord could be forced to  do repairs before rent increases.  "We do not have that authority and in some cases landlords  need the capital before making sucrr expenditures."  She advised the tenants that only "essential repairs, such as  structural flaws" could be enforced.  "There are other ways to go," she advised. "Use the influence of  local municipal authorities. An application to the Rentalsman  Office for redirection of rent would allow you to attend to repairs  in lieu of rent."  The Maple Crescent Apartment tenants and landlords will  receive word before the end of the month as to the outcome of the  meeting and the decision of the Rentalsman Office.

Vader told the board that the purchase of a $2,000 thermal  blanket would reduce evaporation and heat loss in the pool  facility.

A familiar sight at other wharves on the  Sunshine Coast, among them Langdale, Hopkins Landing and  Pender Harbour, the Imperial Tofino only docks at Gibsons when  it has local "packaged" cargo to off-load.

This  requires approximately ISO stops between Vancouver and  Alaska. The tanker was built at McKenzie shipyards in 1973-74.

The location of the meeting is the Upper Floor of Ken's  .Lucky Dollar.  All clubs or individuals wishing to participate in this  year's Sea Cavalcade should plan to attend this meeting. The  fate of this year's event will be decided at this meeting.  Stelck named  to run for Socreds  Brian Stelck, alderman on Sechelt council, director on the  regional board and businessman, has a new title. He was  unanimously nominated as a candidate for the British  Columbia Social Credit Party in the Mackenzie  Constituency and will stand in the next provincial election.  Stelck was nominated by past candidate, Dr. Eric  Paetkau at the meeting held Sunday, April 12 at the Senior  Citizens Hall in Sechelt. where more than 50 were in  attendance.  He was welcomed as a candidate by the keynote speaker,  Bernard Smith, the president of the B.C. Social Credit  party. Also in attendance were the Regional District  director, George Smith and the constituency president,  Duncan Sim. Stelck was given the support and the good  wishes of the party.  "The intent of my nomination is that there will be Socred  representation on the Coast enabling us to take the concerns  of the people in the region to the government," Stelck told  the Coast News.  "We want to be accepted in this riding. We think it can be  done, with lots of hard work."  District Lot 142S) is a lot which has been deeded to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District for park purposes.  Directors of the regional board were informed at Thursday  night's meeting that barges containing construction and camp  equipment were already en route to the site. Apparently as a result  of an oversight, Edco Construction Company had presumed that  the site in question was B.C. Hydro property and discovered the  mistake after the. barges had been dispatched.  According to a memo from SCRD Community Planner Jim  Johnstone, Edco would prefer to use the site because "virtually no  physical preparation, (tree cutting etc.) will be required."  The work will involve drilling and blasting on the site and the  pouring of concrete. Water and sewer utilities would be left intact  upon the completion of the project and would become the  property of the regional district. Other locations for the camp  would apparently involve more extensive site preparation that the  company would like to avoid.  An 18-man crew would live on the site until November of this  year. Local health authorities have already approved the location  of the camp.  Though the regional board softened its original stand of  complete opposition to the line itself and recently lost a battle for  right of approval of the use of herbicides for vegetation  management along the line, no protest was made to the landing of  the barges or the establishment of the camp on the park site.  Area A Director Joe Harrison remarked, however, that the  company is technically in trespass and should be advised that the  SCRD has the option to prosecute accordingly.  "Hydro didn't hesitate about prosecuting some of our people,"  Harrison said, referring to the recent court cases involving  Egmont resident Iris Griffith and other protesters against the  project which resulted from their obstruction of preliminary  construction work on Texada Island.  Edco is expected to begin work later this month at the cable  landing sites and Cape Cockburn and the east and west coasts of  Texada Island and at the mid-island station on Texada. Work at  the four locations involves site preparation, installation of  electrical grounding grids, foundations for buildings, electrical  equipment and standby diesel generating units; construction of  buildings to house station control equipment; and erection of  fencing. There will be two buildings at each of the three-cable  landing terminals and one at the mid-Texada station.  ����Wrl4 vrf^BtiMfftWH-M*  >.  Directors ofthe board ofthe Sunshine Coast Regional District  listened 'with polite skepticism last Thursday night as  representatives of Five-A Holdings Ltd. of Calgary outlined a  proposal for a 134-unit hotel, condominium, shopping centre and  office complex on District Lot 1401, directly opposite the  Langdale ferry terminal.  Dean Miller of Five-A Holdings told the board that the firm is  aware that the proposed Gibsons by-pass will go through D.L.  1401 and has planned the complex to avoid creating traffic flow  problems. Miller told the board the firm has been working on the  proposal "for two years", but there was little evidence they had  done so with any knowledge of local by-laws, restrictions, or the  wishes of local residents.  Gibsons Mayor Lorraine Goddard pointed out that sewage  disposal in the area is a major problem even for the residential  development already in place and that adequacy of sewage outfall  from the ferry terminal has already been questioned.  Area F (West Howe Sound) Director David Hunter advised  Mr. Miller that the West Howe Sound Settlement Plan currently  contains provision for only one small commercial core to be  developed north ofthe terminal in the upland area near Langdale  Heights. Hunter also pointed out that D.L. 1401 is among those'  lots under consideration for "down zoning" from 'A acre  minimum to Vi minimum size lots.  "The people in the area are completely opposed to this kind of  development," Hunder said, but he invited the delegation to make  their presentation to a meeting of the Area F Advisory Planning  Commission to be held April 21, at 7:30 pm. at Langdale  Elementary School.  Planning Committee Chairman Harry Almond and Director  Hunter advised the delegation that they were free toconduct their  own poll of local residents.  be reduced to 56 degrees at night for an estimated saving of $3,000  on the pool's $16,000 hydro bill. Vader reminded the board that  hydro rates are expected to increase in the near future.  Vader also stated that the Society has received a large number  of enquiries about evening exercise and weight-training facilities  in conjunction with the pool and repeated the Society's request for  $6,000 to finish the pool's recreation room. Vader estimated that  revenues from the recreation room would pay for the capital  outlay within two years.  Vader emphasized that these capital expenditures would be  undertaken "not to waste money or to squander it, but to save  money".  In her presentation, Vader made no reference to Director Joe  Harrison's objections to the Society's budget over-runs at the last  board meeting. Thursday night, Harrison listened to the Society's  request without comment. The request was referred to the Joint  Use of Schools Committee.  ... Lee andFinance Committee Chairman Brian Stelck spent time  Tall weeken'ffatlempiirtg to unfavel t he increasingly complex kridt  of the Joint Use of Schools Committee finances. Contacted by the  Coast News, Stelck stated that there were "still so many items" to  be examined that he could not make a firm guarantee that the  money would be forthcoming.  "I don't foresee any difficulty at this time," Stelck said, "and as  Finance Chairman I would certainly like to find the money."  The board has promised a firm decision for the Aquatic Society  at the board's April 23 meeting.  ON THE INSIDE...

Joe  Production Department:  Pat Tripp  Nancy Conway  Shani R Sohn  Lyn Fabio  Circulation  Michael Nozinski  Good luck, Brian  We would wish Brian Stelck well in  his campaign to become the Socred MLA  for this riding. The basis of a democracy  is choice and without public-minded  representatives coming forward and  offering themselves for the trial of an  election campaign there would be no  choice.  With that said, we would quarrel  with Stelck's reasons for seeking office.  He says he wants this riding to have  a Socred MLA so the needs of the people  of the riding will go directly before the  government.  The first and most obvious fallacy  in Stelck's position is his assumption that  after the election in which he will rejoice  in the Socred candidacy there will be a  Socred government. Brian may be right,  of course, but the bulk of the experts  seem to feel that this ham-handed and  feckless government will blunder into  oblivion as soon as the people of the province have an opportunity to choose  again.  The second and more subtle implication of Stelck's reason for running is the  implication that by having a Socred  candidate representing the area in the  unlikely event of another Socred government there would be goodies dispensed.  It is sadly a common electoral practice  to dispense favours from the pork barrel  to the government ridings to ensure that  they stay faithful. It is so common that  one tends to overlook that what we are  speaking of is political corruption when  these assumptions are made.  Stelck's given reason, of course, is in  keeping with the standard of campaign  that has been run for the past twenty  years by the party with the quaint name  which is now extinct in every province but  this one. The very familiarity ofthe crass  approach dulls our sensibilities to the  inherent danger to democracy of such  cynicism.  If is to be hoped that Stelck comes up  with better reasons before the election.  Bill Bennett's brainwave  Unlike some prominent capitalists of  our area, like the head of Macmillan  Bloedel, who are now crying out in  protest at the doings of BCRIC, we have  never been an admirer of Bill Bennett's  brainwave.  The people of British Columbia were conned into buying what they  already owned. Then they were privileged to watch as most of the money went  south with Edgar Kaiser to buy a football  team leaving the local shareholders  with a lot of coal that the provincial  government instantly rendered virtually  worthless by subsidizing coal exports  from the north-east.  Now we learn of BCRIC executives  getting half their inflated salaries as a  pension after six or seven years; of  BCRIC executives getting interest free  loans from the corporation to purchase  houses.  We have said it before but it appears to  bear repeating: Bennett's avowed purpose Was make the unenlightened voting  public more aware of the wonders of the  world of big business. He may be succeeding admirably.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  n   W^Sfis/^m  FIVE YEARS AGO  Commenting on a recent announcement made by Education Minister Pat  McGeer to the effect that local school  districts would be responsible for  increased cost in education, School  Trustee Claus Skiekerman told the  board last week that "it is very difficult  to do anything else but lay off  teachers". As many as 42 teachers may  be affected.  The Ministry of Health has decided  that the Halfmoon Bay ambulance will  definitely remain at its present location  until a new ambulance station is  opened at the new Pender Harbour  Health Clinic.

Readers of poetry will also  know the romance of bells.  Hardy and Houseman both  make reference to the sombre  outrollings of church bells  announcing weddings, or funerals or some such special  occasion. The essence of dignity and matters portentous is  in the sound of bells in the  19th Century that is. \  In our accelerating and  driven times, however, the  sound of bells connotes the  strident insistence ofthe alarm  clock or the clamorous and  demanding telephone. There  are alarm bells and school bells  and none of them bespeak  dignity. They are associated  with the demands of the day.  the pressing, the immediate and  above all the insignificant.  All of us endure the harridan  and shrewish sound of the  automated bell in one form or  another. For me. fifteen years a  teacher, 1 think it was school  bells that gave me the most  grief. As a student and as a  teacher they were always  ringing just five minutes before  I was ready for them.  Lunch-times were a perfect  horror of bossy bells. Five  minutes after the welcome  noon hour bells had rung  another bell rang. I think it was  to warn all tardy students that  they were supposed to be out of  the classroom. Halfway  through the all too brief lunch  hour they did it again. I could  never think of any reason for  that bell other than to mockingly inform that the lunch  hour now was counting down.  Ten minutes before the countdown was complete the bell  shrilled its warning lhat thete  were only ten minutes left, ll  did it again at live minutes to  the hour and then again when  time was up. There was a brief  period for attendance taking  then Ihe hell rang again and  everyone scurried off to their  first class, three minutes after  that the bell rang to announce  the beginning of the first class  and so it went day after day  throughout the school year.  There was a brief period  during the time that 1 was a  high school student when I was  responsible for the ringing of  all the bells because I had a  watch and a classroom near the  switch and for a brief and  glorious month during thai  period the system failed and I  went up and down through the  corridors of the school waving  a cow bell happily, but that was  my only experience of the joys  of the non-automated bell.  Of course, as if the automated bell were nol quite  enough of a campaign against  the sanity of 20th Century man  there came a refinement to  jangle the nerve ends in the  form of the automated buzzer.  1 am convinced that there is a  fiendish laboratory in some  hidden central place where  diabolical sadists devise sounds  which will penetrate all de-.  fences that the human mind can  throw up against them. They  blare and whine and croak out  their commands and people,  poor people hasten to obey.  Some sort of high water  mark in the torture of our  species has been achieved in  Accent times in the variety of  beepers and buzzers that are  secreted into the modern  automobile. They buzz emphatically at you because your  seat belt isn't on or because  your door is open or because  your key is in the lock. They  order and they command and  again there is nothing we can  do but obey so that the dreadful  sound will stop.  I   suppose   that   the   asso  ciation of the sound of bells  with hellish insistence which  will brook no denial is irreversible. The tolling of the  church bell is increasingly a  thing of the past. Oh, there are  the glories of the carillon  ringers, valiant dingers to a  better tradition, but nowadays  when the man sings the bells are  ���ringing for me and my girl it is  either the alarm clock hauling  them back to duty from the  bliss of sleep, or the alarm bell  which cries out to all the world  that' the engagement ring'has  not been acquired with due care  and attention to the civilized  niceties of the cash register, or  the lad and his lass must break  embrace to answer the oppor-  tuning of an encyclopedia  salesman on the telephone.  Something has gone out of  life with the going of the  romance of the bell and here, as  elsewhere, automation has  much to answer for.  The claim that the president  of the United States is the  most important person in the  world is definitely overstated. I happen to know for a  fact that the most important  person In the world is Mary-  Ann Babcock,  my plumber.  In the past six months,  Mary-Ann has unplugged my  toilet three times and fixed the  leak in my sink twice. She  gave me some very good  advice about my septic tank  and showed me how to decrease the temperature of my  electric hot water heater.  Without Mary-Ann, life as I  know it, would not be possible.  Now Mary-Ann has never  been shot at, or even insulted  as far as I know, and this  perhaps accounts for her  generally underrated status.  It seems a rather distorted  vision of mankind when we  can praise and admire the  people who get shot at and  completely ignore the truly  important folks.

I have a modest proposal  designed to eliminate this  faulty assignment of value.  If we insist on assigning  importance to people depending on their alleged  social value, we need a revised  system. First of all, everybody  in the world should start oi  on January first of every yei  with 100 points, and th  person with the most point  left over at the end of the year  should be declared the most  important person in the world.  Points would be deducted  every time a person was  criticized, at the rate of one  point per complaint. If he  really got yelled at, we could  take off two points. An  assassination attempt would  mean a 25 point deduction  and getting voted out of office  would mean an automatic 100  point penalty.  With a sane, logical system  like this, I'm sure Mary-Ann  Babcock would gain her  rightful' place as the most  important person in the world.  Criticizing your plumber is  like insulting your barber,  you know that sooner or later  with the toilet overflowing,  or the razor at your throat,  you can remember awfully  fast just how fine a person  you're dealing with.  Plumbers would gain a new  recognition for their social  contribution. Hardly anybody  ever takes a shot at his  plumber. I think the last time  it happened was in Halifax in  1956 when Angus McPhee  was adjusting Mrs. McPher-  son's plumbing when Mr,  McPherson came home unexpectedly. Even at that Mrs.  McPherson was not heard to  complain about Angus' handiwork and besides it was later  discovered that Angus was  only an apprentice.  Furthermore, under this  system, the President would  assume a very low status, thus  eliminating him as the subject  of target practice. Instead of  building a memorial library  to him, as is common practice,  they could just tan his hide  and use him for a salt shaker,  just the same as they would  with anybody else whose  body contained more bullet  holes than grey hairs.  The more I think about it,  the more I like my new  system. I can't wait to see  Mary-Ann's picture on the  cover of Time Magazine.  The way it is now, the only  time I think of Mr. Reagan is  when somebody says "Have  you heard the bad news:"  Of Mary-Ann, I think warm  and glorious thoughts every  time I get into my bathtub.  dy  1  ���ar^BB  ist    "   I  aakalaa��aa��aaa*aa>alaaa>aa��a  Jkm *wm  Coast News, April 14,1981  Quality Meats  ,AffHll4- April 1t  America's tragic nightmare  Letters to the Editor j**m.

I might just as  well have stayed and fought fire  for Jill is in an evasive and  quixotic mood. The owner of  the coffee-house where she  works, has been urging her to  move in with him, she informs  me. While she has declined the  offer, the information does  little to set me at ease. At least  Carl and the other bus-people  have headed for California.  Most of the tenants at the  communal house, including  Skeet. Fawn and the Fallons,  have gone away for the weekend. As a result. Jill and I have  the sprawling place pretty  much to ourselves. It is an  ama/ing old house ���three  floors of creaking corridors  and unusually spacious rooms.  The rambling structure was  apparently built by a rich  merchant in ihe early years of  the century and the rooms must  once have contained expensive  furniture. They contain little  now but obligatory mattresses,  makeshift bookcases, psychedelic posters, records and other  basics of the frugal, new-  bohemian lifestyle.  In the Fallon's apartment,  changeable Jill becomes briefly  responsive and for a couple of  hours, we seem to recapture the  mood of the first, warm days  we had known at Sully's Cove.  Video Cassette  RENTALS  Over 100  Programs  In Inventory  But she soon grows skittish  again and insists that we head  over to the Kitsilano area and  visit a new group of people she  has just met. 1 am not much in  the mood for meeting any more  underground characters at this  point but she insists and vows  to go alone if 1 don't accompany her.  The party in question is at  another old house, even more  rundown and time-battered  than Skeet's Castle. The inhabitants are at yet another  remove, younger, less- direc-  tioned, a morose and desperate  crowd. There is a bit of beer  around but the main tipple  seems to be codeine cough-  syrup���they have several cases  of the stuff. In a corner, two or  three kids are taking turns  putting a paper bag over their  heads. "What the hell are they  doingT' 1 asked Jill in mystification.  "Sniffing glue" she says,  "That's their trip. Hey, I want  you to meet my friend, Moira."  She slumps by the refrigerator, a wan, threadbare girl who  might be pretty were she not so  painfully thin. Her eyes gaze up  at us like two small creatures  C��  COAST  r vi Dt-o  PRODUCTIONS  ��� Travelogues  ��� Movies  - Local Events  VHS or Beta Format  885-3666  lost in a wood. They are dark  and drugged and vacant.  Bizarrely, she is holding a very  small child in her arms life a  half-forgotten doll. The baby  can't be more than a few weeks  old and Moira herself is only  pushing 17 at the outside.  Wherever her mind has drifted  to, it cannot be a happy place.  "There's no future, man," she  says vaguely in a flat voice,  "you know that? There's no  future at all."  Jill kneels beside her and  attempts to guide her friend to  a healthier space. I stand by  helplessly, feeling concerned,  out of place and somehow, very  old. What is Moira doing to  herself? What are any of them  doing to themselves, for that  matter? One of the glue-sniffing  kids has gone into some kind of  convulsion. He rolls on the  floor making odd. harsh animal noises. The whole scene is  unbearably freakish and depressing. All 1 want to do is get  the hell out of there.  Later Jill tells me that Moira  was high on Romilar. another  cough medicine with psychedelic side-effects of a sometimes alarming nature. "Wow,  man, I saw dinosaurs on it one  time," she says. Jill seems to  accept it all as a matter of  course but I find the whole sad  scenario  more  than  a little  distressing. 1 can't get the image  of hopeless Moira and her  tragic baby out of my mind.  The generation-gap is beginning to widen between Jill  and 1. The rest of the weekend  does not go well and we part  awkwardly.  I am almost relieved to get  back to Sully's Cove and the  honest sweat and danger of the  woods. The fire did indeed take  off and the rest ofthe crew were  called out as I suspected ihey  would be. Big Bart tells me  about it:  "She was rolling pretty good  before that wind died down. By  the time they called us back  out, the whole goddamn valley  was on fire. You can see how it  burned quite a ways into the  standing timber. Wasn't a hell  of a lot we could do except  watch the bastard. Lucky that  big gully's there. It acted like a  natural firebreak. The flames  couldn't jump it. By Sunday  she'd simmered down to a mild  uproar."  "Did Halsam say anything  about my taking off?" I asked  somewhat guiltily.  "He mentioned something  but I said you had important  business in the city. How is Jill  anyhow?"  "She's okay," I tell him  without elaborating. After the  depressing weekend, 1 am not  sure of anything anymore. The  fire of my blind infatuation  seems to be burning towards  some uncrossable gully of its  own. To be continued.

At  first I was terribly excited, for  after three years of dealing  with the quirks and egos of  my colleagues, I was alone in  this vast beautiful world. No  one to worry about but myself.  No more waiting for someone  to show up for rehearsal. No  more fighting over who does  the dishes, whose turn to load  the van, whose turn to drive  the van. No more fighting over  women or money or the last  grain of rice.  Nomorefunll  The thought of performing  as a solo did appeal to me.  At least I could play what I  wanted to play. For days I  stayed at home, alone with my  tape machine, meticulously  putting all my best songs on  record for the eagerly awaiting  ears of a Vancouver booking  agent.  The tape complete, I wrapped it carefully in my crusty  old bandana and tucked it into  the cavernous depths of my  day pack and ventured forth  to the big city.  Ahhh, the tranquil pleasantries aboard one of B.C.  Ferries' luxury liners. The  magestic scenery, the fresh  sea air, the magic of the self-  stirrable coffee and the happy  oK&*  RDPSo  RDP Bookstore/  sound of the space invaders  blowing alien ships to smither-  ooniesville. High-spirited and  confident (and dressed in my  Sunday go to meetin' clothes)  I rode that ferry proud. This  cat was ready for his new  career.  Bold and cocky, I entered  the office of my soon-to-be-  agent....Disillusioned and  angry, I left the office of my  never-to-be-agent,   i  "What went wrong?" asked  the eyes of a thousand Gib-  sonites. Good question. I'm  still a little baffled meself.  She didn't even want to hear  the tape. I spent hours on  that tape and she wouldn't  even listen to it. From what I  could gather, no one wanted to  hear my songs. People wanted  to hear Kenny Rogers and  Billy Joel. So that's where it's  at, eh? I don't even like Kenny  Rogers. If people want Kenny  Rogers, give them a juke box.  If they want "live entertainment", give them me. I  sure told her. She handed me  a list of songs I should learn  before she'd book me anywhere. The list contained the  schmaltziest stuff ever recorded. I didn't even like any  of them, I certainly wasn't  going to waste my time  learning them.  I stood up to leave.  . "Aren't you going to take  your list?" asked my never-to-  be-agent.  "Rip", said the list, and I  was on my way.  Next week: Mindless labour  and more fun with agents.  One of the more interesting  films of the last few years,  Robert Altman's dramatic  version of the Thimble Theatre and cartoon character  "Popeye", comes to the Twilight Theatre for four days  beginning Wednesday, April  13. There will be two showings  of the film, at 7 and 9 p.m.  Wednesday, Thursday, and  Friday and two showings  Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.  This unanimated version,  which stars Robin Williams as  Popeye, Shelley Duvall as  Olive Oyl, Paul L. Smith as  the villainous Bluto and Paul  Dooley as the hamburger  addict, J. Wellington Wimpy,  is faithful to the spirit of  Popeye, lacking the cheerful  optimism of Disney of Disney  cartoons.  Following "Popeye", the  Twilight    Theatre    presents  "The Incredible Shrinking  Woman", starring comedienne Lily Tomlin as the  perfect suburban housewife  whose consumer lifestyle  backfires on her. Fake food  and unnecessary additives  cause her to begin shrinking  steadily.  The film combines elements  of Richard Matheson's paranoid 1957 film classic "The  Shrinking Man" with the  photographic techniques of  television commercials to  create a feminist-ecological-  comic parody of the good life  in North America.  Tomlin will be appearing in  back to back films at the  Twilight following up "The  Incredible Shrinking Woman"  with her appearance in "Nine  to Five" with Jane Fonda and  Dolly Parton.

Had I some really useful  information to impart that  would appeal to the criminally  minded e.g. how to "loid" a  lock, blow a sale or successfully  rob a bunk. I would gladly pass  it on hut our operations were,  in their simplicity, quite minor  infractions ofthe law and could  be practised by anyone possessed with a little nerve and an  ability to stifle any prickings of  conscience thai might arise, It  puzzled me at the time why  Eddie chose me of all people as  his accomplice, but later on he  confided in me the reason. He  thought I had an honest face  and a guileless manner and  these could be invaluable assets  lor what he had in mind.  We were intending lo call at  the Consolidated Press office  on Yonge Street early in the  morning but first an important  matter had to be attended to.  Tactfully he explained to mc  that I had to have a "new  front". In other words, the  clothes I was wearing hardly  fitted Ihe part of a successful  magazine salesman, so off we  went to the huge I.

Next a matching shirt  and tie and finally a pair of  black oxlords. I know il sounds  ridiculous and unbelievable,  especially in these inflatory  limes, but the whole outfit cost  a little over $20. The suit at $12  being naturally the most expensive item. Although I protested  vigorously at the time, I must  confess that my new attire  made a startling change in my  appearance and, even if I did  not come close to the sartorial  splendour exhibited by Eddie,  it gave me a feeling of confidence and that 1 certainly  needed in view ofthe part I was  supposed to play in the coming  events. Eddie wrote a cheque to  cover our purchases, whether it  was any good or not 1 never  found out.  The actual interview in the  afternoon went by like a breeze.  Under the spell of Eddie's  oratory, the sales manager, a  Mr. Wilkinson, was soon  convinced that we were the  answer to any publishing firm's  dream and not only were we  hired but were given a short  talk on the "modus operandi"  of the firm and what they had  to offer. They were exclusively  engaged in trade and professional magazines and their  clientele were, in the main,  doctors, dentists, lawyers and  others in well paid professions.  We were instructed to proceed  (at their expense) to Kingston,  make a tactical survey of the  area and. should things appear  promising, rent a small office,  have a phone installed and get  busy! I said very little while all  this was going on as Eddie  obviously was in command of  the situation and I was still in a  daze when, after handshakesall  around, we hit the street.  Well we arrived in Kingston  right on schedule and. so far,  everything appeared legitimate  and in order. However it  wasn't very long before I  became aware that Eddie had  no intention whatsover of  selling magazines on a straight  commission basis. He had to  embroider the scheme and so  make more sales by offering  fictitious bonuses and making  outrageous inducements in  order to get these professional  people to sign on the. dotted  line. He had acquired from  some source (don't ask me  where) a bulky and beautiful  combination of dictionary and  book of knowledge, which  would probably retail at about  $25 and that was a lot of money  at the time. He made all the  sales over the phone and 1 was  the "shill" and collector, toting  this bulky volume along and  Sechelt's  Spring Break  V  r  i  For Guys  &Gals  Selected JeanS  T-shirts  fSurprise^  ^Specials,  The Dock  885-5323  assuring any who were naive  enough to believe me that with  their subscription they would  be receiving this handsome  book free at some later date.  How much later 1 didn't  specify!  Under Eddie's tutelage I also  was prepared to offer any  magazine of their choice for a  full year, should they not want  or need the dictionary. Although we had absolutely no  authority to do so, I was  signing up these gentlemen not  only for the magazine they  chose, but promising them they  would receive, say 12 issues of  Better Homes and Gardens or  Ladies Home Journal or, for  that matter, anything that they  might appear interested in. It  was amazing how gullible these  people were.  How Consolidated Press  ever got all this sorted out and  their potential and irate clients  pacified is anybody's guess, but  that summer Eddie and I  covered a large part of the  province of Ontario and saw a  lot of country. When we had  exhausted all the likely names  and prospects in a town and  sensed the law would soon be  breathing down our necks we  moved on. From Kingston to  Kitchener, from Belleville to  Brockville, Gait to Guelph and  finally from Orangeville to  Owen Sound we covered them  all and, considering the difficult and desperate times we  were living in, we lived high off  the hog.  Eddie had bizarre tastes when it  came to liquid refreshments.  His favourite beverage was  blackberry wine laced with gin  and 1 not only acquired a liking  for it but assisted him in the  drinking of literally gallons of  this potent brew.  It is with sadness that I have  to report that the lid blew off all  our illicit adventures in the last-  named town, Owen Sound.  When finally the law caught up  with us, Eddie with his past  record   got   six   months   in  Coast News, April 14, 1981  - Fran Bouiana Pnoio  Protesting a 25% increase in their rents, the tenants of Maple Crescent Apartments meet with the  owners and a representative of the Rentalsman Office from Vancouver.  New titles in  Gibsons Library  Library.,  Gibsons Public Library has  new fiction and non-fiction  titles on the shelves this  month,  The following are the new  fiction titles: A Woman of  Substance, by Barbara Taylor  Bradford; Sophie's Choice, by  William Styron; Masada, by  Ernest K.

After such  a hectic summer it is scarcely to  be wondered at that I had a  hard time settling down and  adjusting to the lonely life.  My days of simple solitude  were, 1 realized, coming to an  end. There was so much of the  world left to be seen and I had  only scratched the surface. I  longed for the comingof spring  and for more adventures on the  broad highway of life!  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Resurrection of Joseph Bourne by Jack Hodgins, Signet 1979,  $2.95.  Joseph Bourne was merely an old bundle of rags the squatter's  kids used to haunt. Granted he was the respected local-colour  human-interest broadcaster on the national network. No one  would have guessed that he was a famous poet who ended up in  Port Annie while suffering amnesia.  Was this what the mayor was waiting for to set Port Annie on  the tourist maps? The mayor was tiring of wearing his  Thunderbird and Captain Vancouver costumes trying to drum up  business.  Is this the class and culture that Larry the librarian had been  hoping for? Would this end the loneliness of Jenny, the retired  stripper, who looked after Slim's brood of kids day after day?  Would this give the ladies of the mill supervisors something better  to talk about over their exclusive weekly bridge games? Would  Fat Annie Fartenburg, for whom the town was named, descend  from her room over the Kick and Kill beer parlour after all these  years? The answer is yes, yes.  All this and more came to pass. Jenny would have her white  wedding to "make it legal". The mayor could junk his "tallest  cactus in the world" project. Fat Annie would make a devastating  appearance in the Kick and Kill. More than that, a fantasy come  true Peruvian beauty would disembark from the freighter that was  grounded in the harbour by the mill to upset the entire town.  Jack Hodgins, a modern Robert Service, immortalizes the  characters he creates. They are caricatures, of course, but  somehow familiar to those of us who remember the young history  of our own coastal domain. The author lives just outside  Nanaimo, and his capacity for pinning character to page is  without compare. There is much humour and great pathos, but  more than anything else there is perspective in this novel.  When the slick developer comes to town, the mayor tries to talk  sense into the citizens of Port Annie:  "The Hollywood hunk waited with a patient smile on his face  while Slim talked���how childish! how charmingly rural!...  "And listen," the mayor said, before anyone else could respond.  "Make no mistake about this. Turn down this offer and you're  saying no thank you to tourist dollars, to bigger stores, to more  hotels. You're saying so long to movie stars and millionaires on  our streets. ...A dozen hamburger drive-ins along the highway,  with golden arches and rotating buckets and neon lights as far as  the eye can see. Just let them build their resort and all of  civilization will follow. You'll wonder how you ever stood it  before."

Once again the tickets for  both "Valdy" dances last  weekend were sold out within  a week.

Tomorrow's Agenda.  On the agenda for tomorrow's Community Association meeting are: discussion  of the joint use of schools for  recreation in light of the  situation at Pender Harbour;  discussion of foreshore rights;  and inclusion of a by-law in  the Settlement Plan to forbid  the building of more than one  dwelling on a lot.

Death in the woods  One of the largest crowds  ever to gather in the Egmont  Hall came on Saturday to  offer their condolences to  Edna Howitt and her family,  Greg and May, for the recent  death of her son, Bobby.  Bobby who was nineteen  years old, died Wednesday  morning working in the woods  he loved. In lieu of flowers,  Edna requested that people  donate to their favourite  charity. All of Egmont offers  its sympathy to the family.  Egmont continues to bat a  thousand when it cornel' to  smorgasbords. A large crowd  ran the gauntlet of fine foods  prepared by some ofthe better  cooks in B.C. Special thanks to  Vera Grafton and Doreen  Gronkgaer for spearheading  the workforce. John Seabrook  performed admirably as M.C.  Oliver Larson won the fancy  nightgown, just what he'll  need for those cold nights in  camp. Carlene Walker won  the Mystery Prize and Sonia  Jefferies won the cake. Special  recognition went to Mike and  June Cashaback who were  celebrating their wedding  anniversary.  Nuclear protest  at pot.luck picnic  On Saturday, April 25th,  there will be a meeting at the  Roberts Creek Picnic Site  at the foot of Flume Road to  observe this day of protest.  A newly-formed group,  "P.A.N.T. (People Against  Nuclear Technology) For Life"  is organizing the event, which  will also include a pot luck  picnic.  We will have people on  hand to answer any questions  Iff J.B.M.'s  Sign Painting  & Truck Lettering  Moved to Larger Location  Unit No. 4  Gibsons Industrial Park  (behind Gibsons Motors)  Call John 886-7350  you may have and there  will be informative pamphlets  and other literature since one  of the main objectives of this  event is to make people more  aware of the dangers involved  in the pursuit of nuclear  technology.  We are faced, not just with  the threat of world annihilation by nuclear warfare, but  with the equally horrifying  catastrophe of the slow poisoning of the earth. This  comes from the irresponsible  storing of nuclear waste and  the inefficient operation of  nuclear reactors, amongst  other things.  The meeting and picnic will  begin at noon (weather permitting); please bring your  favourite dish, some juice  or pop and your family and  friends.  Join us in this gesture  against a technology over  which wc have no control and  which threatens our planet,  our lives and the lives of  future generations.

May 3rd is the date for  the water board meeting at  the Community Hall. Some  important decisions are going  to be made regarding water  for this area in the near  future.

Silver Anniversary, promises  to really show off the imagination of all the participants.  This year the managing of  the parade is in the capable  hands of the Sechelt Chamber  of Commerce. A lot of effort  and time is required to  arrange this event and a heartfelt thank you is extended to  the Chamber.  Our local Channel 10 will be  on hand to televise this event.  so remember that the entry  forms are going to be more  important than ever.

Gymnastics Day changed:  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission who are  sponsoring the gymnastic  program for the children ofthe  area have announced that the  date of this has been changed.  The first session will be on  Monday, April 27th from 2:45  till 3:45 in the afternoon.  Parents are also welcome to  attend and to join in with their  kids on some keep fit work.  Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary:  There was a good turnout  for the April meeting of the  Auxiliary held at the hall and  another new member, Kathy  Ramshaw was made most  welcome.  The committees for the  Timber Days Tea Garden were  all set up, the convenor for  this year being Eunice Keeler  who will be ably assisted by  the many willing volunteers.  The Holgates have very generously offered the use of their  camper on the site to make up  the fresh sandwiches.  Generally this booth is set  up for the two days, but it  was decided to confine it to  just the day of the parade  this year, which is the Sunday.  Reports were given by the  various chairmen.  Dorothy Stacey, in giving  her gift shop report, requested  that anyone who has knitting  patterns with which they  would care to part should hand  those into the hospital desk  where they will then be placed  along with the wool supply.  Mary MacDonald gave a  report on the activities in  the Extended Care Dept.,  which are many and varied.  Always lots happening there,  which is a marvellous thing.  She made an appeal for  planting pots of any kind and,  in particular, for planter  boxes.  Anyone who is handy with  hammer and nails could make  up several planters, or even  one or two. They are for use  outside the window of the  Extended Care day room  where the view shows nothing  but a roof top. It will be so  nice for confined patients to  have some flowers and growing   vegetables   to   watch.  Next meeting of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  will be Monday, May 4th at  8 p.m.  Elsewhere in this paper you  will notice a request for more  members for the Area 'B'  Ratepayer's Association. The  importance of good strong  numbers of members cannot  be over-emphasized, because  it can be quite disheartening  to those who are willing to  give of their time and effort  to go to bat for you when you  have a problem. Bureaucracy,  as you well know, can walk all  over us, but if we have the  strength and support of everyone the task if fairly simple.  A lot of people don't care to  get involved until something  which directly concerns them  occurs. Each little group can  fight its own battles to no  avail, but with sufficient  membership and support we  can fight a lot of the devastation which Ik about to  take place in this area. It really  should matter very much to  you.  RDP  Bookstore  Recipes  (or a Small Planet  ���Ellen Buchman Ewald  Meptely Handicapped  Love  ��� Marie Putman  Labels for all Occasions  ��� E.

April 14, 1981  Fleming on education  Mainstreaming in schools  by Frances Kleming  Mainstreaming is an American term, meaning integrated  educational programming for  handicapped children, ll is a  concept which has been and is  being hammered out in courts  ol law. and one that is changing  the entire American educational scene. Because we in  Canada are extremely sus-  ceptible to American influence,  it is most necessary lor us to try  to understand the concept and  the reasoning behind it. Litigation in the United Slates is  the major factor in facilitating  educational change; it is not so  in British Columbia, ll will he  counter-productive if we accept  the results ol their litigation  without giving careful consideration to the appropriateness of the changes our neighbours to the south arc being  forced to accept.  Ihe literature dealing with  special education reveal that  discussions regarding main-  streaming as a possibility go  back 45 years. Experiments  report success and lack of  success. It has recently emerged  as a heated topic and. as  parents become more knowledgeable and demanding, it is  not likely to go away.  Teachers used to give children batteries of tests and on  the basis of these test results,  used to feel quite professionally  secure in labelling children,  categorizing them into groups  of potential learners. This  categorization has been challenged in the courts of law of  the United States, and the  following points have been  made: traditional testing does  not accurately measure the  learning ability of the child;  often the test is administered  incompetently; parents are not  advised of the implications of  withdrawing the child from the  regular class; special education  classes are pleasant and custodial in nature, but the  programming is inadequate  and spending time in a special  class may do the child irreparable harm.  Lawyers are arguing that  grouping children on the basis  of medically derived disability  labels has no practical utility  in the schools. Studies of  children in segregated classes  produced no evidence that the  children so grouped shared any  educational needs at all. Why  were they I hen grouped?  A score of researchers have  brought forth studies which  show the negative impact of  educational categorization.  Not only was the predicted lack  of academic success present,  but the children felt stigmatized, threatened, "different", dumb, worthless and  inferior. There is evidence that  being placed in a special class in  itself interfered with a child's  growth and development.  In view ofthe pressure from  parents and the courts, it is not  surprising that United States  teachers are beginning to cope  in ways which surprise even  themselves. I here has been an  astounding increase in the  number ol research reports  indicating a broader use of  behavior modification principles, especially in the area of  special class individual progress.  Some ol  the children  Chimney       |  Cleaning        1  ii Maintenance  I  Phone 886-8187   J  whose behavior became acceptable had been labelled autistic,  mentally retarded, emotionally  disturbed, and speech impaired.  Recent legal actions in the  schools ot America have obtained the right loan education  and the right to treatmenl for  exceptional children. Pending  litigation will focus on demanding that the schools will  become accountable for their  educational actions. Teachers  are going to have to prepare  themselves to cope with a  broad spectrum of abilities and  learn how to modify unacceptable behaviors in their own  classrooms. Hut a new dimension has been added.  Outstanding educators in the  U.S.A. are preparing to replace  the traditional categorization  schemes by a sophisticated  computer-supported functional behavioral assessment  plan. The computer will diagnose and prescribe the objectives to be achieved, suggest  instructional    strategies   and  materials to accomplish these  objectives. As it builds up its  "memory bank" it will develop  criteria to evaluate student  progress. Data systems will  provide for daily feedback on  student progress to allow for  necessary programming  changes the teacher should  effect.  Such data will stand up in the  courts of law, and the entire  educational process will become very scientific and accountable, and frightening!  Ihe possibilities for manipulation and brain-washing arc  limitless. Orwell's fictional  account of the world of the  future comes to mind.  These are American, not  European educational administration trends. Can we in  Canada resist them'.' Should we  resist them'.' A large percentage  of our administrators take their  master's degrees in U.S.A.  universities. Whal are ihey  bringing back to B.C. as  educational leaders? Kiddi  ���Computers, anyone?  Cirque Alexander will entertain at the .lolly Roger Inn on Caster  Sunday.  Cirque Alexander  As a special treat for their  Easter Sunday Brunch guests,  the Jolly Roger Inn in Secret  Cove will present the famous  clown Cirque Alexander.  Cirque Alexander will give  four 15 minute "strolling"  performances among the  guests as they dine, beginning  at 11 a.m. and a full 30 minute  performance for the children  in the upstairs banquet room  at 1 p.m.  Cirque Alexander is 'the  heart of the circus', namely,  the clowns. Once again there's  everyone's favourite - the  mischievous, tricky and downright silly Alexander. Popping  out of nowhere and disappearing oh-so-fast, he tries  his hardest to mystify and confuse his bubbly and effusive  partner, Korky. She will have  none of it, though, and  matches his shenanigans with  tricks of her own. Dancing,  singing and providing constant banter designed to draw  all into the colourful world of  make-believe, Korky is sure to  capture a special corner of  your heart.  Cirque Alexander was  founded in the spring of 1977  in Halifax, N.S., to revive the  splendour and charm of,the  traditional European entree  clown. Drawing from comic  elements of vaudeville, silent  film and circus, the clown  'Alexander' and 'Officer  O'Sneeley', a Keystone Kop,  collaborated to produce a fast-  paced show of mime, magic  and slapstick. A small highly  portable tent and circus ring  completed the festive atmosphere.  In the spring and summer of  1980 Cirque Alexander per-'  formed on-site daily at the  Vancouver International Festival for Young People; toured  for four weeks throughout  Alberta with the 7Sth Anniversary Festival of the Arts;  performed in the Secretary of  State Pavilion at the Pacific  National Exhibition and performed at many other special  events and festivals.

In a space of fifteen minutes there were three traffic accidents the same afternoon.  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  For over forty years I had  enjoyed the many kinds of  seafood that our coast had to  offer but it was only about ten  years ago that I had my first  blue mussel. Most people  regarded them as poisonous  or at least unsuitable for food.  This bad reputation seems to  have been handed down from  the unfortunate experiences  that some of the early Europeans had with this bi-valve.  Mussels are the neglected  cousin of the clams and the  oysters. One seldom sees  them on seafood menus or in  fish shops. On the east coast  of Canada they are commercially harvested and in  Europe they are farmed like  oysters and are available in  shops and restaurants. Only  recently has this started to  happen here.  The Blue Mussel (Mytilus  edulis) is the mussel that so  many tourists have enjoyed in  the Mediterranean, the very  same species that abounds  everywhere on the B.C.  Coast. These molluscs, when  small, attach themselves to  rocks or other solid objects,  by secreting a sticky, jelly-like  substance from special byssus  glands. This hardens in the  water to form tough threads  that act like little mooring  lines to hold the mussel to his  anchor.  Gathering mussels is simply  a matter of pulling clumps of  them from their moorings.  Try to choose a clump that has  the greatest number of large  shells which may range in  colour from an indigo blue  to black and a few may even  be brown.  To prepare mussels, scrub  the shells with a stiff brush  and scrape off the beards.  Wash under running water,  you don't have to remove  barnacles. Discard those that  are not tightly closed.  Mussels may be steamed in  a steamer or large pot or  electric frying pan at high heat  for about 5-10 minutes or  until the shells open and the  meat is easily removed from  the shell. Serve with melted  butter and lemon juice.  Chak-Chak prefers this recipe :-  "Mussels For Two"  3-4 doz. mussels 1" ��� l'/i"  (wild)  2-3 doz. mussels l'/i" - 2'/i"  (cultivated)  1    medium    onion    (sliced)  Butter or  margarine  (same  bulk as onion)  Vi  -  Vt cup Sauterne wine  Method  Saute onions and butter in  large saucepan 'til soft.

It was a grey day, raining  hard, the sea a desolate  expanse of unoccupied grey  space, not even a duck along  the shoreline and the beach a  moonscape of grey, wet rocks.  Janie had found a small fish  head and tired of carrying it,  wanted to stay and eat it. I  wanted to get home and I'd  just found a plastic bag in  which to carry it, when I was  surprised by a loud hail from  the water. Looking around,  here was a small cabin cruiser  not more than 100 yards offshore. "Help!" the voice  shouted,  "We need  help."  With no power the boat was  drifting with the current and  in danger of being swept onto  the rocks. A boat in similar  circumstances was lost on this  stretch of beach just a few  months ago.  I replied that I'd get help,  settled the argument with  Janie and set off briskly for  home, the boat moving westward almost as fast as we did.  It crossed my mind on the  way up the beach trail that  maybe the quickest way would  be to phone Smitty and ask  him to send a boat out to give  them a tow, but then traditional training took over.  When you need help, call the  RCMP.  The phone call to the local  constabulary connected me  with the central switchboard  in Vancouver, I described the  situation to the girl, gave her  the precise position of the  boat - halfway between Gower  Point and Chaster Creek,  drifting westward at a good  lick - and emphasized the need  for haste and the danger to  the boat and crew from the  rocks.  Then I went back to the  beach to report that help was  on the way. The boat was  still perilously near the shore  and I stayed on the beach, not  that I could have been much  help, but at least there was  someone in sight and rightly  or wrongly I felt they were my  responsibility until the rescue  crew arrived.  Half an hour later a boat  came racing round Gower  Point and we watched in  disbelief as it roared up the  Strait, obviously not the  promised help we were  waiting for.  By now the boat had caught  the ebb tide and the current  was taking it away from the  shore, it was well out of  hailing distance and no longer  in danger unless the wind  should suddenly increase -  always a possibility.  Returning to the house I  put in another call to the  RCMP and this time got the  Constable on duty in Gibsons.  He'd heard about the boat and  thought help should be on the  way, but wanted an update on  the situation and description  ofthe boat.  As I could no longer monitor  progress from the house or  from the lookout on top of the  bank, I phoned a neighbour  who, I thought, should be able  to watch the rescue from her  kitchen window. She'd seen  the boat earlier and commented at the risk people take  when fishing so close to shore  and went out to look for it as  it was no longer visible from  her house. She reported its  position a little while later  and offered to keep an eye on  things and let me know when  it was picked up.  It was by now over an  hour since I'd turned in the  request for help. Now, I know  that when you're waiting for  someone each minute can  seem like ten, but just the  same it seemed reasonable to  expect that Kelp should have  reached the drifting boat  within a half hour. Why, I  asked myself, hadn't I phoned  Smitty in the first place. Then  I began to wonder if they were  sending the police boat down  from Pender Harbour, or if we  might be waiting for the  Hovercraft from Steveston.  I phoned the RCMP again  to find out what the holdup  was. Fortunately the men  were not in any real danger,  but had they been, they'd  have been out of luck.  The girl on the switchboard  in Vancouver was sympathetic  to my concern, but didn't  know why it was taking so  long. She'd done her part,  she'd phoned the Rescue Coordination Centre and the  RCMP and it was up to them  to take it from there and, yes, I  had done the right thing to  phone the RCMP.  A little later confirmation  that help had finally arrived  and the boat was last seen  safely in tow back to Gibsons.  I still don't know what  caused the delay, why it took  so long to get a boat out from  Gibsons. I phoned Art McPhee, local Emergency Programme Co-ordinator, who  was out of town that day, to  find out how the system works  and what we should do if a  boat or aircraft is in trouble.  The Rescue Co-ordination  Centre is in Victoria and they  are the people to phone. They  have a toll free line, just phone  the operator and ask for  Marine or Aircraft Distress.  They will then contact the  appropriate service, send out  the Air-Sea Rescue Hovercraft, helicopter, the RCMP  or contact the local emergency  co-ordinator and send out  radio calls to other vessels  in the area.  The instructions are at the  bottom righthand corner of the  inside cover of your phone  book, under the emergency  numbers. I didn't look in the  phone book because the  emergency numbers are posted beside the phone in case  the phone book should have  strayed.

We will be closed both Good Friday and Eatltr Sunday. Easter  Monday is not a holiday in our books, so we will be open that  day.  In years and months gone by I have published the poems of a  dear old lady, Mabel May Wilson. She is quite old now and  fragile, as her shaky hand-writing depicts. Deeply religious,  gracious and full of love for others, she has written and  compiled four little booklets of her poems. She wrote to me just  recently enclosing a copy of one that might well be her final  works.  It would seem appropriate at this time to publish one of her  Easter messages.  When Jesus looked within the cup the night He  was betrayed  He saw its deep mysterious depth yet He was not I  dismayed.  This was the cup that He must drink yet not His  cup alone  They all must sip that sacred draught that would  for sin atone.  When Jesus took the piece of bread into His  sacred hands  He knew the agony of death would sever human  bands.  Yet not His victory alone His chosen ones must  share  Take, eat, He said, this broken bread and in my  triumph share.  When Jesus looked within the cup He looked past  Calvary's Hill  He saw the radiant morning where all was quiet  and still.  He saw the tombstone rolled away, He walked  among the flowers  He supped, He talked with those He loved for  many happy hours.  Lord help us look within our cup.the cup of life  we share.  Help us to drink Ihis sacred draught with love  beyond compare.  Help us to look beyond the time the ageing years,  this mortal  death,  Thy sacrifice embraces all the height, the length,  the depth.

Wkww  Mi  ���M tW  12  Coast News, April 14, 1981  Area suggested doubled  The situation with regional parkland  b\ JoopB rgerjon  The study proposes to doable  the present park area on the  Sunshine Coast, while tripling  the    length    of   waterfront.  The recently completed  SCRD Parks Study by Stuart  Lefeaux and Jim Johnstone  describes 13 existing public  parks and proposes 18 more.  This would increase the total  park area on the Coast from  n80 hectares to 1400 hectares  and result in an increase of  public waterfront from 6km  to 18km.  The common complaint of  both residents and visitors on  the Sunshine Coast is that so  little of it is accessible to the  public: less than 0.07% of  the land and little more than  3.5% of the shoreline. The  study seeks to improve this  deplorable situation. It also  proposes more and better  boat launching sites.  camping facilities. All have  waterfront:  Roberts Creek, 40 ha 100 m,  24 campsites, boatlaunch;  Porpoise Bay 60 ha 600 m,  84 campsites, boatlaunch;  Smugglers' Cove 180 ha  3000 m, marine park, hiking;  Garden Bay 160 ha 400 m,  undeveloped; Skookumchuck  Narrows 40 ha 1200 m, hiking.  Total 480 ha 5300 m.  There are three Regional  Parks already, none of which  has waterfront. Cliff Gilker  Park is leased from the  Provincial Government. The  report recommends that clear  title be sought by the SCRD  and that the Sunshine Coast  Golf Club be assisted to  expand to eight holes by  acquisition of additional lands  to the north of Gilker Park.  The Regional Parks are:  Soames Hill 40 ha, view,  hiking, picnics; Cliff Gilker  fields, children's playgrounds,  fairgrounds, tennis courts,  golf courses and many other  outdoor recreation facilities in  local and regional parks must  be met by the SCRD. The  preservation of creek green-  belt strips are also the responsibility of the Regional District. The Provincial Government, as the major landholder, is evidently ready to  help wherever possible but  leadership must come from  the SCRD."  Proposed parks.  The report then recommends a number of new park  sites for each electoral area, as  shown hatched on the accompanying plan. We will  discuss them here in categories, determined by the  nature of the present ownership, as this affects the  process of acquisition.  First there are five areas,  which are Provincial Reserves  already designated "Undei  Reserve for the Enjoyment of  the Public" (UREP). Transfer  of these areas to the SCRD  would presumably not require  money. Present UREP sites,  discussed in the report are:  Trout Lake 32 ha 100 m,  swimming, picnics; Village of  Sechelt Reserve 100 ha, future  arboretum; Chapman Creek  130 ha, hiking, picnics;  Mission Point 5 ha 1000 m,  beach recreation; DL 1313  Watershed Reserve 65 ha,  future golf course. Total  342 ha 1100 m.  "The institutions do not pay  taxes and have some responsibility to make land available  for public park purposes. As  residential development surrounds the sites the original  wilderness camping experience becomes less viable and  it may be possible that the  institution would consider a  trade for Provincial lands in a  more remote, alternate location. The SCRD should  advise the institutions of the  District's interest for public  park purposes and commence  negotiations in case consideration is being given to  future subdivision and/or  sale."  If suitable trades for crown  land could be arranged, this  again would not require  funds. The six sites have  substantial water frontage.  They are:  Gamma Phi Beta Sorority  Camp 1 ha 150 m; Camp Olave  (Girl Guides) 52 ha 875 m;  Camp Douglas (Presbyterian  Church) 4.7 ha 125 m; Camp  Byng (Boy Scouts) 81 ha  1125 m; Salvation Army Camp  9.4 ha 400 hi; Camp Elphinstone (YMCA) 65 ha 1000 m.  Total 213 ha 3675 m.  The last group involves four  desirable areas which are  privately owned. The acquisition of these sites would require substantial funds, although in certain cases exchanges for crown land may  be negotiated. The privately  owned sites are:  proposed new boat launching  sites are:  Gibsons - proposed marina.  Roberts Creek - immediately  west of the creek mouth.  Davis Bay - immediately west  of the dock. Selma Park - behind the harbour of refuge on  Indian Reserve waterfront.  Sargeant's Bay - proposed  Provincial Park. Halfmoon  Bay - industrial zoned land  Mintie Sreet end. Smugglers'  Cove Provincial Marine Park -  north-west corner access from  Wescan Road. Madeira Park -  widening of existing ramp to  create two ramps and expand  existing limited parking.  Ways and Means.  From the foregoing it is  clear that every effort has  been made to select sites that  could be obtained at minimal  cost to the SCRD, through  transfers or exchanges of  crown land. Yet, certain areas  will have to be purchased.  The Provincial Regional Parks  Program will pay one third of  the cost of land acquisition for  Regional Parks. It will also  pay one third of the cost of  maintenance and operation.  In 1981 a similar contribution  will be available for Community Parks and greenbelt  sites.  The SCRD has been allocated the function of subdivision and  sale  of crown  ���  Copies of the report are  available at the SCRD Office  in Sechelt. The report is  intended to form the basis for  a Regional Parks Plan, after  the public has had an opportunity to provide input. Implementation of a Regional  Parks Program would be by  the SCRD. One third of the  cost of the program would be  borne by the Province.  Existing Parks.  The report first reviews  the existing parks, all shown  in black on the accompanying  plan.  They fall in three categories: Provincial, Regional and  Community Parks. In the  following tables the first  figure gives the size of the  park in hectares and the  second figure gives the length  of waterfront in meters.  lusi in case you need to  refresh your memory: a  hectare is a piece of land of  100m x 100m, or about 2.5  acres, and a meter is about 3.3  feet.  Best known are the Provincial Parks, of which there  .ire five. Two of them have  INCOME  I  TAX  IN SMALL  BUSINESSES  8:30 am to 5:00 pm  OPEN SATURDAYS|  UNTIL END OF APRIL  "AT THE DOCK"  Above Anderson Realty  885-2810  50 ha, hiking, picnics; Halfmoon Bay 90 ha, wilderness,  playing fields. Total 180 ha.  The five Community Parks  are small and only the Sechelt  Boulevard has waterfront. The  accent is on playing fields,  except for the Sechelt Marsh,  which features waterfowl. To  complement the marsh it is  recommended that the head of  Porpoise Bay be kept as a  waterfowl reserve and that  some waterfront lots on  Osprey Avenue be acquired by  Sechelt Village to provide  some public waterfront at the  head of Porpoise Bay. Community Parks are:  Lions Park 6 ha; Sechelt  Marsh 1.5 ha, waterfowl;  Sechelt Boulevard 3 ha 700 m,  beach recreation; Hackett  Park 1.5 ha, playing fields;  Brothers' Park 8 ha, playing  fields. Total 20 ha 700 m.  The role of the SCRD.  What exactly is the role the  SCRD should play in providing  public parks? The report  answers this question as  follows:  "The Provincial Government will accept direct responsibility only for provision of  parks for camping visitors to  the SCRD. Such parks will in  some measure fulfill park  needs for residents. But  Provincial Parks will only  provide widely spaced campgrounds and picnic areas,  hiking trails and some scenic  area preservation. The needs  of residents and visitors  throughout the district for  beach activity areas, playing  Then there are three other  Provincial Reserves. The Sa-  kinaw/Ruby Lake area is  already on reserve for a large  future Provincial Park with  frontage on Sakinaw and Ruby  lakes and Agamemnon Channel, so no change in ownership is recommended. The  Hotel Lake area is a watershed  reserve and the Oyster Bay  area is reserved for housing  purposes. Transfer of the  latter two areas to the SCRD  may not require any funds  either, if the Province can be  persuaded to change their  designation. The three sites  are listed as follows:  Sakinaw/Ruby Lake 40+ ha  1100 m, future campground;  Hotel Lake 70 ha 2500 m;  Oyster Bay 30 ha. Total  140 ha 3600 m.  The next category includes  six institutional camps, acquired many years ago by  charitable and similar organizations as organized camping  sites for boys and girls. These  areas are all "Public and  Institutional Zones" (PIZ).  We quote the report:  YOUR AUTOPLAN  CENTRE  Taking care of  all your Real Estate Needs  Seaside Plaza Evening?

The proceeds of such  sales are to be used for park  purchase  and   development.  Another source of land or  funds is the 5% that can be  levied from lands to be subdivided. The report suggests  that the SCRD apply to the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  to raise this contribution to  parks to 10%, as is levied in  the City of Vancouver.  Lastly the report recommends an increase in the tax  levy for Regional Parks to  1 mil. This would seem quite  modest. The present milrate  for this purpose is 0.1, which  produces a revenue of only  $10,000.  Public Input.  In the limited space available it is not possible to cover  all the recommendations in  the report. However, this  review does mention all the  parks and proposed parks that  it describes. Public input is  now required. So please study  the plan to see what may have  been overlooked. Your comments will be much appreciated.

It considers the  responsibility for provision  and maintenance of the ramps  a responsibility of the Provincial Government through  the Ministry of Lands, Parks  and Housing and the Ministry  of Highways. The Provincial  Parks Division has admitted  such responsibility in their  1975 planning report, but have  not yet built any ramps or  parking facilities. The Small  Harbours Branch of the  Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans will pay half  the cost of such facilities, if  built by the Provincial or  Municipal Governments.

Homemaker assistance  is increased  An increase in financial  assistance for families and  individuals receiving home-  maker service under the Long  Term Care Program was  announced today by Health  Minister Jim Nielsen.  While persons with sufficiently high incomes are  expected to pay all or part of  homemaker service costs,  those whose incomes are  below certain levels receive  help at no charge.  The new increases, effective  April I, raise the allowable  income levels on the ministry's financial eligibility test  for Long Term Care Home-  maker service an average of  '13.7 per cent.  The new maximums are  derived from a new formula  that relates the allowable  income levels to the income  test of the Ministry of Human  Resources basic gain rates.  Using the formula ensures  that as gain rates increase the  allowable income levels on  Long Term Care's eligibility  test also rise automatically.  An additional income exemption applying to families  with disabled or elderly  members will also increase  on April 1 from the current  S90to$125.  Currently about 23,000  Long Term Care clients  receive homemaker service,  of whom 17,000 or 72 per cent  are totally subsidized.  ^At Harmony Hall  The  liilinc   i f i->   in   kl/uim   nnA Tl._        .-.!_.���.          ���.*_.*��!_ n  Th,e tulips are in bloom and  the grass is, lush and green  around Harmony Hall and we  all look forward to gardening  and all the joys and beauty  ofthe surrounding area.

Lloyd's motion defeated  Concerned by the damage  to the board's image over the  Pender Harbour Pool misunderstanding, Trustee Al  Lloyd presented a motion to  the board asking "That action  be initiated to develop a policy  enabling the board to declare  given matter as being  emergent, to set a time limit  to deal with said matter and  to disregard existing policies  and regulations, if necessary,  to resolve said matter within  the time limit set".  The motion was defeated as  other trustees felt present  policy allowed such freedom to  resolve matters expeditiously.  mm  Presents the New  INSIDE SLIDING  STORM DOOR  DO-IT-YOURSELF  (or let us do it!)  Call for full details:  1    886-7359  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd.,  Gibsons  Bush travails  Carl's  corner  In search  of a career  by Carl Chrismas  It was near midnight when  we Anally made the cabin. The  rain had turned to snow and  was beginning to pile up on our  packs and steaming shoulders.  The trees were slowly changing  from green to white and icicles  were beginning to form on the  dripping branches.  "Shore hope she keeps  snowin' an' stays cold. Makes  fer good trackin'," growled  Perse.  A short time later we were  hugging the welcome heat of  the little camp stove in the  cabin. Our blankets were  strung from the rafters for  drying and airing, we had mush  cooking for the dogs and bacon  and beans for ourselves, and as  the snow had stopped and the  temperature was dropping, it  looked good for tomorrow.  We took turns at sleeping  and stoking the fire that night  and by daylight in the morning  had fed the dogs and ourselves  and were ready to travel.  The trail from the cabin  dropped slowly down the  mountain to skirt the meadow  at its western end. Perse had  told me of a family who had  moved into the meadows at the  turn of the century and had  tried to raise a herd of purebred  cattle on the lush grass. Their  names were the Weeks family  and I had met one of the  descendants at the Cowichan  station store when we were  logging at Kinsol Siding. He  was the postmaster at the time.  In fact, he had been born in the  meadows and lived there with  his folks until the wolves Anally  cleaned them out and they were  forced to move back to Cowichan. The cabin we were  heading for that day was one of  the line cabins that had been  used as an outpost for one of  the family to stand guard at  night to protect the herd from  marauding wolves. I have often  wished I had had the opportunity of talking to Weeks  about it each time I picked up  the mail at Cowichan Store.  What a story he could have  told. But of course I didn't  know about his background at  the time.  As we dropped below freezing levels the snow turned to  rain and came down in a  deluge. We were too far along  now to turn back, even though  the heavy rain, if it continued,  would make tracking for the  dogs virtually impossible. But  the weather had been changeable and the rain could stop  and the cold could come again.  We continued on.  The trail swung south, then  Anally east, and as we left the  timber the meadows opened up  in front of us. At least, it was  supposed to be a meadow. But  what confronted us was a lake.  The heavy rain and melting  snow had flooded the tall grass  and if we were going to sleep in  a cabin that night we were  going to have to a lot of  wading.  "Ain't much further into the  cabin. You can see it from here,  'tother side of the crik". Perse  pointed to an opening in the  timber on the other side ofthe  meadow and sure enough, I  could see the shake roof.  We were already soaked to  the hide so a little wading  wasn't going to make us much  wetter. We plunged ahead into  the freezing, knee deep water,  the dogs half swimming from  bunch grass to bunch grass.  As we neared the cabin and  the windfall we were supposed  to cross on, we found the creek  had become a part of a fast  moving lake at this point. The  windfall was still rooted on the  far shore but the top was being  swept in a big arc over the deep  water, far beyond our reach.  There would be no crossing to  the cabin this night.  We moved away from the  fast water and found a small  clump of brush to rest on above  the water line. If we hadn't been  so wet a smoke would have  helped to lift our spirits. We  had to make a decision. And it  seemed that it was always at a  time like this that I looked to  Perse to come up with a  magical answer to our problems. He finally did but it  wasn't magical.  We had a choice of heading  back into the timber and  looking for some form of  shelter and wood that would  burn, or wading for another  mile down the meadow to a  Forest Service lean-to that he  knew of, with a chance that  there would be a dry ivood  supply. Darkness was not lar  away. In any case we were  going to have to move fast.  "You can just see the end of  the meadow. The lean-to is at  the edge of the timber and our  cross lot is a high one. It should  be safe. We might have to pack  the dogs if the water gets too  deep. Think we're up to it"?  "Sure beats sleeping under a  tree", 1 replied. "We couldn't be  any wetter if we swam the rest  of the way!"  The dogs held out for about  halfway but as there were no  grass hummocks at this end  they had no chance to rest.  There was no problem getting  them on our shoujders this  time���they were glad to get out  of that cold water.  Perse had been leading the  way but it was getting dark and  he was beginning to tire. Each  step had to be felt for carefully  as the meadow contained deep  sink-holes that a man could  drop into and be lost forever.  We weren't going to make  the crossing before complete  darness overtook us. We had  debated that morning before  leaving the miners cabin about  taking along the bugs. They  were light in weight so at the  last moment we had draped  them over the corners of our  packboards. What a blessing  they turned out to be.  The psychological lift ofa bit  of warmth from the candle  Aame and the soft beam of  reflected light from the shiny  cans equipped us with the  armour we needed to fight back  at this unfriendly environment.  The nagging fear that somewhere out there in that descending blackness waited a  pack of marauding wolves that  had devoured the dreams of the  Weeks family many years ago,  was gone with the flick of our  bullet lighters that produced  the candle flame. We found the  crossing log in place, the three  sided lean-to with a good  supply of dry wood, and the  haven in the dark we were  looking for.   j0 be continued.

The recently completed  SCRD Parks Study by Stuart  Lefeaux and Jim Johnstone  describes 13 existing public  parks and proposes 18 more.  Ihis would increase the total  park area on the Coast from  1)80 hectares to 1400 hectares  and result in an increase of  public waterfront from 6km  to 18km.  The common complaint of  both residents and visitors on  the Sunshine Coast is that so  Mule of it is accessible to the  public: less than 0.07% of  the land and little more than  3.5% of the shoreline. The  study seeks to improve this  deplorable situation. It also  proposes more and better  boat launching sites.  camping facilities. All have  waterfront:  Roberts Creek, 40 ha 100 m,  24 campsites, boatlaunch;  Porpoise Bay 60 ha 600 m,  84 campsites, boatlaunch;  Smugglers' Cove 180 ha  3000 m, marine park, hiking;  Garden Bay 160 ha 400 m,  undeveloped; Skookumchuck  Narrows 40 ha 1200 m, hiking.  Total 480 ha 5300 m.  There are three Regional  Parks already, none of which  has waterfront. Cliff Gilker  Park is leased from the  Provincial Government. The  report recommends that clear  title be sought by the SCRD  and that the Sunshine Coast  Golf Club be assisted to  expand to eight holes by  acquisition of additional lands  to the north of Gilker Park.  The Regional Parks are:  Soames Hill 40 ha, view,  hiking, picnics; Cliff Gilker  fields, children's playgrounds,  fairgrounds, tennis courts,  golf courses and many other  outdoor recreation facilities in  local and regional parks must  be met by the SCRD. The  preservation of creek green-  belt strips are also the responsibility of the Regional District. The Provincial Government, as the major landholder, is evidently ready to  help wherever possible but  leadership must come from  the SCRD."  Proposed parks.  The report then recommends a number of new park  sites for each electoral area, as  shown hatched on the accompanying plan. We will  discuss them here in categories, determined by the  nature of the present ownership, as this affects the  process of acquisition.  First there are five areas,  which are Provincial Reserves  already designated "Undei  Reserve for the Enjoyment of  the Public" (UREP). Transfer  of these areas to the SCRD  would presumably not require  money. Present UREP sites,  discussed in the report are:  Trout Lake 32 ha 100 m,  swimming, picnics; Village of  Sechelt Reserve 100 ha, future  arboretum; Chapman Creek  130 ha, hiking, picnics;  Mission Point 5 ha 1000 m,  beach recreation; DL 1313  Watershed Reserve 65 ha,  future golf course. Total  342 ha 1100 m.  "The institutions do not pay  taxes and have some responsibility to make land available  for public park purposes. As  residential development surrounds the sites the original  wilderness camping experience becomes less viable and  it may be possible that the  institution would consider a  trade for Provincial lands in a  more remote, alternate location. The SCRD should  advise the institutions of the  District's interest for public  park purposes and commence  negotiations in case consideration is being given to  future subdivision and/or  sale."  If suitable trades for crown  land could be arranged, this  again would not require  funds. The six sites have  substantial water frontage.  They are:  Gamma Phi Beta Sorority  Camp 1 ha 150 m; Camp Olave  (Girl Guides) 52 ha 875 m;  Camp Douglas (Presbyterian  Church) 4.7 ha 125 m; Camp  Byng (Boy Scouts) 81 ha  1125 m; Salvation Army Camp  9.4 ha 400 hi; Camp Elphinstone (YMCA) 65 ha 1000 m.  Total 213 ha 3675 m.  The last group involves four  desirable areas which are  privately owned. The acquisition of these sites would require substantial funds, although in certain cases exchanges for crown land may  be negotiated. The privately  owned sites are:  ��� ���  ���  Copies of the report are  available at the SCRD Office  in Sechelt. The report is  intended to form the basis for  a Regional Parks Plan, after  the public has had an opportunity to provide input. Implementation of a Regional  Parks Program would be by  the SCRD. One third of the  cost of the program would be  borne by the Province.  Existing Parks.  The report first reviews  the existing parks, all shown  in black on the accompanying  plan.  They fall in three categories: Provincial, Regional and  Community Parks. In the  following tables the first  figure gives the size of the  park in hectares and the  second figure gives the length  of waterfront in meters.  .lust in case you need to  refresh your memory: a  hectare is a piece of land of  100m x 100m. or about 2.5  acres, and a meter is about 3.3  fcct.  Bcsl known are the Provincial I'arks. of which there  are five. Two of them have  INCOME  I   TAX  I  50 ha, hiking, picnics; Halfmoon Bay 90 ha, wilderness,  playing fields. Total 180 ha.  The five Community Parks  are small and only the Sechelt  Boulevard has waterfront. The  accent is on playing fields,  except for the Sechelt Marsh,  which features waterfowl. To  complement the marsh it is  recommended that the head of  Porpoise Bay be kept as a  waterfowl reserve and that  some waterfront lots on  Osprey Avenue be acquired by  Sechelt Village to provide  some public waterfront at the  head of Porpoise Bay. Community Parks are:  Lions Park 6 ha; Sechelt  Marsh 1.5 ha, waterfowl;  Sechelt Boulevard 3 ha 700 m,  beach recreation; Hackett  Park 1.5 ha, playing fields;  Brothers' Park 8 ha, playing  fields. Total 20 ha 700 m.  The role of the SCRD.  What exactly is the role the  SCRD should play in providing  public parks? The report  answers this question as  follows:  "The Provincial Government will accept direct responsibility only for provision of  parks for camping visitors to  the SCRD. Such parks will in  some measure fulfill park  needs for residents. But  Provincial Parks will only  provide widely spaced campgrounds and picnic areas,  hiking trails and some scenic  area preservation. The needs  of residents and visitors  throughout the district for  beach activity areas, playing  Then there are three other  Provincial Reserves. The Sa-  kinaw/Ruby Lake area is  already on reserve for a large  future Provincial Park with  frontage on Sakinaw and Ruby  lakes and Agamemnon Channel, so no change in ownership is recommended. The  Hotel Lake area is a watershed  reserve and the Oyster Bay  area is reserved for housing  purposes. Transfer of the  latter two areas to the SCRD  may not require any funds  either, if the Province can be  persuaded to change their  designation. The three sites  are listed as follows:  Sakinaw/Ruby Lake 40+ ha  1100 m, future campground;  Hotel Lake 70 ha 2500 m;  Oyster Bay 30 ha. Total  140 ha 3600 m.  The next category includes  six institutional camps, acquired many years ago by  charitable and similar organizations as organized camping  sites for boys and girls. These  areas are all "Public and  Institutional Zones" (PIZ).  We quote the report:  Francis Peninsula 70 ha  3000 m, hiking, picnics;  Coopers Green 2.5 ha 100 m,  camping, boatlaunch; Sar-  geant's Bay 12 ha 500 m,  beach recreation, waterfowl;  Wakefield waterfront 3 ha  300 m, loggers' shows. Total  25 ha 3900 m.  Boat launching sites.  The report states that the  number of boat launching  sites on the Coast is inadequate and proposes eight  more sites. It considers the  responsibility for provision  and maintenance of the ramps  a responsibility of the Provincial Government through  the Ministry of Lands, Parks  and Housing and the Ministry  of Highways. The Provincial  Parks Division has admitted  such responsibility in their  1975 planning report, but have  not yet built any ramps or  parking facilities. The Small  Harbours Branch of the  Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans will pay half  the cost of such facilities, if  built by the Provincial or  Municipal Governments.

Madeira Park -  widening of existing ramp to  create two ramps and expand  existing limited parking.  Ways and Means.  From the foregoing it is  clear that every effort has  been made to select sites that  could be obtained at minimal  cost to the SCRD, through  transfers or exchanges of  crown land. Yet, certain areas  will have to be purchased.  The Provincial Regional Parks  Program will pay one third of  the cost of land acquisition for  Regional Parks. It will also  pay one third of the cost of  maintenance and operation.  In 1981 a similar contribution  will be available for Community Parks and greenbelt  sites.  The SCRD has been allocated the function of subdivision and  sale  of crown  land. The proceeds of such  sales are to be used for park  purchase  and   development.  Another source of land or  funds is the 5% that can be  levied from lands to be subdivided. The report suggests  that the SCRD apply to the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  to raise this contribution to  parks to 10%, as is levied in  the City of Vancouver.  Lastly the report recommends an increase in the tax  levy for Regional Parks to  1 mil. This would seem quite  modest. The present milrate  for this purpose is 0.1, which  produces a revenue of only  $10,000.  Public Input.  In the limited space available it is not possible to cover  all the recommendations in  the report. However, this  review docs mention all the  parks and proposed parks that  it describes. Public input is  now required. So please study  the plan lo see what may have  been overlooked. Your comments will be much appreciated.

Homemaker assistance  is increased  An increase in financial  assistance for families and  individuals receiving home-  maker service under the Long  Term Care Program was  announced today by Health  Minister Jim Nieisen.  While persons with sufficiently high incomes are  expected to pay all or part of  homemaker service costs,  l hose whose incomes are  hclow certain levels receive  help at no charge.  The new increases, effective  April 1, raise the allowable  income levels on the ministry's financial eligibility test  for Long Term Care Home-  maker service an average of  13.7percent.  The new maximums are  derived from a new formula  that relates the allowable  income levels to the income  test of the Ministry of Human  Resources basic gain rates.  Using the formula ensures  that as gain rates increase the  allowable income levels on  Long Term Care's eligibility  test also rise automatically.  An additional income exemption applying to families  with disabled or elderly  members will also increase  on April I from the current  $90 to $125.  Currently about 23,000  Long Term Care clients  receive homemaker service,  of whom 17,000 or 72 per cent  are totally subsidized.  At Harmony Hall  Tl|e tulips are in bloom and  the grass is lush and green  around Harmony Hall and we  all look forward to gardening  and all the joys and beauty  ofthe surrounding area. What  a glorious place this is to live  and for us golden-agers to  enjoy our retirement years.  Our April general meeting  was well attended and plans  are well underway for our  Spring bazaar, tea and plant  sale. It promises to be one of  the best ever, under the  capable organizing of Marj  Leslie. We have all been  working to have a goodly  supply of crafts to sell and the  plants are all growing nicely,  ready for eager gardeners to  fill their gardens and planters  with summer flowers. May 2,  1:00 p.m. is the date.  The winter activities of  carpet bowling, card playing,  darts and the public bingo  will soon be recessed for the  summer months, so we can  enjoy the great outdoors and  summer trips.  We will be having our  regular monthly pot-luck dinner on April 24th at 6:00 p.m.  The meal is followed by card  playing, dancing and darts.  It is very much enjoyed by  all who come, so put it down  on your calendar and join us.  Some of our seniors have  been, and still are, in hospital  and to all we wish a speedy  recovery - our love to all of  you.  Our meeting concluded with  a humorous reading on the  trials of becoming old, followed by tea and a social half  hour.  Lloyd's motion defeated  Concerned by the damage  to the board's image over the  I'ender Harbour Pool misunderstanding, Trustee Al  Lloyd presented a motion to  Ihe board asking "That action  he initiated to develop a policy  enabling the board to declare  a given matter as being  emergent, to set a time limit  to deal with said matter and  to disregard existing policies  and regulations, if necessary,  to resolve said matter within  the time limit set".  The motion was defeated as  other trustees felt present  policy allowed such freedom to  resolve matters expeditiously.  mm  Presents the New  INSIDE SLIDING  STORM DOOR  DO-IT-YOURSELF  (or let us do it!)  Call for full details:  '    886-7359  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd.,  Gibsons  Bush travails  Carl's  corner  In search  of a career  by Carl Chrismas  It was near midnight when  we finally made the cabin. The  rain had turned to snow and  was beginning to pile up on our  packs and steaming shoulders.  The trees were slowly changing  from green to white and icicles  were beginning to form on the  dripping branches.  "Shore hope she keeps  snowin' an' stays cold. Makes  fer good trackin'," growled  Perse.  A short time later we were  hugging the welcome heat of  the little camp stove in the  cabin. Our blankets were  strung from the rafters for  drying and airing, we had mush  cooking for the dogs and bacon  and beans for ourselves, and as  the snow had stopped and the  temperature was dropping, it  looked good for tomorrow.  We took turns at sleeping  and stoking the fire that night  and by daylight in the morning  had fed the dogs and ourselves  and were ready to travel.  The trail from the cabin  dropped slowly down the  mountain to skirt the meadow  at its western end. Perse had  told me of a family who had  moved into the meadows at the  turn of the century and had  tried to raise a herd of purebred  cattle on the lush grass. Their  names were the Weeks family  and I had met one of the  descendants at the Cowichan  station store when we were  logging at Kinsol Siding. He  was the postmaster at the time.  In fact, tie had been born in the  meadows and lived there with  his folks until the wolves finally  cleaned them out and they were  forced to move back to Cowichan. The cabin we were  heading for that day was one of  the line cabins that had been  used as an outpost for one of  the family to stand guard at  night to protect the herd from  marauding wolves. I have often  wished I had had the opportunity of talking to Weeks  about it each time I picked up  the mail at Cowichan Store.  What a story he could have  told. But of course I didn't  know about his background at  the time.  As we dropped below freezing levels the snow turned to  rain and came down in a  deluge. We were too far along  now to turn back, even though  the heavy rain, if it continued,  would make tracking for the  dogs virtually impossible. But  the weather had been changeable and the rain could stop  and the cold could come again.  We continued on.  The trail swung south, then  finally east, and as we left the  timber the meadows opened up  in front of us. At least, it was  supposed to be a meadow. But  what confronted us was a lake.  The heavy rain and melting  snow had flooded the tall grass  and if we were going to sleep in  a cabin that night we were  going to have to a lot of  wading.  "Ain't much further into the  cabin. You can see it from here,  'tother side of the crik". Perse  pointed to an opening in the  timber on the other side of the  meadow and sure enough, I  could see the shake roof.  We were already soaked to  the hide so a little wading  wasn't going to make us much  wetter. We plunged ahead into  the freezing, knee deep water,  the dogs half swimming from  bunch grass to bunch grass.  As we neared the cabin and  the windfall we were supposed  to cross on, we found the creek  had become a part of a fast  moving lake at this point. The  windfall was still rooted on the  far shore but the top was being  swept in a big arc over the deep  water, far beyond our reach.  There would be no crossing to  the cabin this night.  We moved away from the  fast water and found a small  clump of brush to rest on above  the water line. If we hadn't been  so wet a smoke would have  helped to lift our spirits. We  had to make a decision. And it  seemed that it was always at a  time like this that 1 looked to  Perse to come up with a  magical answer to our problems. He finally did but it  wasn't magical.  We had a choice of heading  back into the timber and  looking for some form of  shelter and wood that would  burn, or wading for another  mile down the meadow to a  Forest Service lean-to that he  knew of, with a chance that  there would be a dry wood  supply. Darkness was not tar  away. In any case we were  going to have to move fast.  "You can just see the end of  the meadow. The lean-to is at  the edge of the timber and our  cross lot is a high one. It should  be safe. We might have to pack  the dogs if the water gets too  deep. Think we're up to it"?  "Sure beats sleeping under a  tree", 1 replied. "We couldn't be  any welter if we swam the rest  of the way!"  The dogs held out for about  halfway but as there were no  grass hummocks at this end  they had no chance to rest.  There was no problem getting  them on our shoulders this  time���they were glad to get out  of that cold water.  Perse had been leading the  way but it was getting dark and  he was beginning to tire. Each  step had to be felt for carefully  as the meadow contained deep  sink-holes that a man could  drop into and be lost forever.  We weren't going to make  the crossing before complete  darness overtook us. We had  debated that morning before  leaving the miners cabin about  taking along the bugs. They  were light in weight so at the  last moment we had draped  them over the corners of our  packboards. What a blessing  they turned out to be.  The psychological lift ofa bit  of warmth from the candle  flame and the soft beam of  reflected light from the shiny  cans equipped us with the  armour we needed to fight back  at this unfriendly environment.  The nagging fear that somewhere out there in that descending blackness waited a  pack of marauding wolves that  had devoured the dreams of the  Weeks family many years ago,  was gone with the flick of our  bullet lighters that produced  the candle flame. We found the  crossing log in place, the three  sided lean-to with a good  supply of dry wood, and the  haven in the dark we were  looking for.  To be continued.

Grass tees  will be open as soon as they  can be toughened up for the  long summer season ahead.  The tee areas are still wet  and new growth is still too  tender to use. It appears that  players are not replacing their  divots on the course. It is a  very small task to replace a  divot and it helps maintain  the fairways in the best  possible way.

We have much to offer, not  only to the private enthusiast,  but to all, including local  businessmen and even the  'not very interested' individuals.  The club itself was started  initially for the pleasure ofthe  participants and of course the  motocross fans, but we would  like to stress that was only  the primary motivation.  As in other communities, a  local Motocross track provides  a safe place for Motocross  practice and so reduces the  motorcycle traffic on the highways and streets of the township and in so doing decreases  the number of motorcycles  involved in accidents.  The Sunshine Coast track  is comparatively isolated from  the residential area and so the  noise that is often a drawback  is in our case no problem at  all.  It is a healthy competitive  sport and we have received a  wonderful show of support  and, to these individuals and  businesses, we would like to  express our appreciation. We  would also like to invite you to  extend your support by  sponsoring a trophy, or, if  you are interested, advertisement boards are available at  very low cost. These boards  line the racecourse, serving  a two-fold purpose; protecting  the   riders   and   advertising  your business. More information is available.

More Letters to the Editor  Time to act is now says Greenpeace  Editor:  Greenpeace has recently  protested against manoeuvers  conducted by the U.S. Coast  Guard with the 188,000 dwt  supertanker BT. San Diego in  (he Straits of Juan de Fuca. In  carrying oul Ihis action we had  three aims:  lirsl. we wanted to bring the  issue of supertankers to public  attention. In many areas ofthe  world oil spills have caused  enormous ecological and economic damage. Greenpeace  plans to help people in B.C.  lijiht supertankers before our  beaches are covered with crude  oil, our environment severely  damaged and our fishing and  tourist industries devastated.  Secondly, we felt that these  'tests' were an attempt by the oil  industry lo increase tanker  traffic through the hack door.  Hud it nol been for our action,  il is likely lhat the unscientific  nature of these 'tests' would  have gone unnoticed. Well-  known scientist David Su/uki  has since pointed out that one  scries of tests held under ideal  conditions is definitely not a  scientific experiment.  These 'tests' were designed to  determine the effects of supertanker engine failure in this  area. However, not one of the  major accidents in the Straits of  Juan de Fuca between 1949 and  1976 was due to this situation.  Bad weather, Yes. Crew incompetence, collisions, faulty  radar. Yes. To have allowed  these engine failure 'tests' to be  sold to the public as a valid  measure of tanker safety would  have been incompetent on our  part.  Thirdly, we wanted to test  our ability to manoeuvre our  inflatable dinghies around a  supertanker. This allowed us to  prepare for the day when  Greenpeace, along with hundreds of our people from B.C.  and Washington State, will  blockade these floating time  bombs.  This is going to be one of the  toughest battles in the history  of west coast environmen-  talism. The oil industry is  determined to funnel crude  down the B.C. coast and  through   Juan  de   Fuca  to  supply the eastern United  States with Alaskan oil via the  Northern Tier Pipeline. These  companies have massive a-  mounts of money, power and  influence.  We believe the battle can be  won. Oil companies, like oil  spills, invariably take the path  of least resistance. If we can  show than that using our  coastline as a conduit for their  oil is going to run into massive  opposition, they will back off.  Greenpeace calls on the  people of B.C. to get involved  in this fight. As a first step, we  are organizing a petition  campaign to show the Canadian and U.S. governments  that people here are opposed to  any increase in tanker traffic  down the B.C. coast. Petition  forms can be obtained by  writing us at 2623 West 4th  Avenue, Vancouver, V6K IP8.  The time to act is now, before  a disaster happens!  Yours sincerely,  Bob Cummings  Communications Director,  Greenpeace  Ex-mayor adamantly opposed  Editor's  Note:  We have received a copy of the following  letter addressed to:  Ihe Village of Gibsons,  ; 1490 South Fletcher,  Gibsons, B.C.  Vour Worship and Members of  ��� Council:  Yesterday, at the Planning  Committee meeting, I heard  the   statement   that   'Shelter  Development'   alias  'TruOak  Equity'  had  Council's assurance of support for a foreshore  lease so lhat they may erect  floats fronting a development  comprising 54 waterfront apartments situated approximately  . across from the firehall and  facing Gibsons harbour.  I,  thereupon,  checked the  I validity of that statement and  find that in my opinion, it has  no basis in fact and 1 must refer  to a letter from the Planner  �� dalcd July 16. 1980 addressed  ; to the Chairman and Members  ; ol   the   Planning  Committee  Srjwhich   letter   ends   the   first  I paragraph with Ihe words. "I  ' hereby .submit  the following  thoughts' and   recommenda-  ; linns for your consideration:  "The letter then lists items I.  ; 2. .1 and 4 which are, pre-  ; sumably, the thoughts men-  ; Honed. Following those  : thoughts are a few of the  : Planner's observations, with  I regard to zoning compliance,  sea walk, soils testing and site  ! drainage requirements. Amid  * these thoughts and obser-  .' vations is a.sentence stating, "A  I foreshore lease would ob-  I viously be required, with there  ��� being no apparent conflict with  future harbour development."  The wording indicates that the  need is obvious to the Planner  but is merely an expression of  his opinion rather than a  recommendation, as what is  obvious to one is not, necessarily obvious to another.  The letter then proceeds to  detail recommendations, the  first of which is meaningless, in  that it states, "(a) Provision of  all data listed above in Zoning I  to 4 inclusive, and their  conformity with by-law requirements;". If this clause had  read. 'Compliance with all  requirements specified in items  I to 4 above, etc." it would have  made sense but as written, it is  just so much gobbledygook  which gobbledygook was ratified by Council at their regular  meeting of July ISthand which  ratification was covered by a  motion reading, "That the  Planner's recommendations of  July 16. 1980 be accepted with  the additional requirement...".  In my opinion, the quotations above, clearly indicate that council did not ratify  their support for a foreshore  lease for the TruOak alias  Shelter Development proposal.  I am pleased that Council did  not ratify it as that would have  been another case of 'putting  the cart before the horse".  My understanding of the  correct procedureforforeshore  leases is to have the applicant  apply to the Lands Branch,  then the Lands Branch is to ask  for municipal approval before  granting the lease. I consider it  most improper for the appli  cant to approach the Village  Council, then having been  assured of their approval,  going to the Lands Branch who  must then go back to the  Council for approval.  As I have stated previously, I  am adamantly opposed to  granting of foreshore leases in  front of residential property,  multiple or otherwise as the  foreshore is public property  and should not be alienated to  provide extra income to developers.

I feel your headline, "Coroner finds fault with RCMP in  death" does not accurately  reflect the situation as described in the article.  I can assure you when the  RCMP are called upon in a  medical emergency they can  be depended upon. The quick  arrival of properly trained  ambulance attendants in this  case is largely due to the  efforts of the Sechelt RCMP,  who greatly assisted the  Emergency Health Services  Commission in improving the  Sechelt Ambulance  Service.  With manpower and budget  cuts the local RCMP have  enough problems without the  Coast News taking cheap  shots at them.  In closing, 1 am happy to see  the local press covering  inquests as this is the only way  the public will receive proper  medical attention when needed. There are serious problems in the health care system  in this area which need the  attention of the local press.  Yours sincerely,  Henry Van Epp  ments.

Inglis  The creeds of the church are  often likened, quite properly,  to cornerstones of the institutional forms of worship,  ihe guidelines which prop up  with strength the truths which  the early fathers ofthe church  perceived.  The difficulty which might  present itself with this definition is Ihe fact that cornerstones may become obsolete  with Ihe passage of time and  the reconstruction of the  building using more modern  methods of support.  This could conceivably result in the once-valuable  adjunct to the building's  foundation becoming archaic  to the extent where the  cornerstone no longer fills its  original role in the scheme of  things, and must be modernized or lose its meaning  altogether.  In the event the cornerstone  is not modernized to fit in  with new concepts in architecture, it might even become  nothing much more than a  millstone around the necks of  the entrenched and inflexible  institution.  Unless the church as a  whole follows the example of  some of its members and rethinks the creeds, putting its  thoughts into credible and  understandable language,  these creeds may weigh down  the church members to the  point where they are no longer  able to soar freely to the discovery of the glorious truths  which lie beyond the outstretched fingers of their  minds.  It is disastrous, also, to  throw out the creeds, as some  have done, or to accept them  placidly as old-fashioned beliefs which have no real  application in today's world.  It should be understood that  the creeds were formulated by  men of great vision to articulate new and startling be-  The cornerstone  of the creeds  liefs in a world which was  striding rapidly from ignorance and superstition into  an era of reason and rationality.  Nor were these creeds  dealing with simple, garden-  variety subjects, but with the  soaring profundities of the  greatest mysteries ofthe ages.  Neither should these creeds  be taken lightly!  Anyone who has engaged  in a third-year university  philosophy of religion class  discussion on resurrection  cannot help but be deeply  impressed by the clarity ofthe  problem for the early church  which resurrection presented  in explaining the person of  Jesus.  Nor is it possible to be  unimpressed by the magnificent scholarship which  went into the two documents  that attempted to explain  the vast mystery in the  councils of Nicaea and Chal-  cedon, in 325 and 451 A.D.,  respectively.  These creeds remained as  the central documents explaining one of the church's  greatest truths, the person-  hood of Jesus, for more than  15 centuries, apparently satisfying the curiosity of millions  of converts to the Christian  faith.  When they are examined  carefully today, however,  there is much to be questioned  in them, if they are to be  comprehended in terms which  can be appropriated as an  explanation which can be  fully appropriated by the  enquirer.  This does not mean that it  will ever be possible to reveal  fully for human consumption  the vast mysteries of the  incarnation, the resurrection  and the ascension, but it does  mean that there seem to be  difficulties for today's minds  in understanding the gist  of the "truths" of the creeds  themselves.  u  M THE UNITED CHURCH  CALVARY         \  M            OF CANADA  BAPTIST CHURCH    %  Sunday  Park Rd., Gibsons        ���  Worship Services  Pastor: Harold Andrews  ST.

This is why we find in many  families a breaking-away from  organized religion, of young  people who retain their faith  in God, but want more satisfactory explanations of what  exactly they are being asked  to believe on faith I  They want some clearer  understanding what it means  to assent by faith to the  doctrines of the Holy Trinity,  the Virgin Birth, the Hypostatic Union, Transsubstan-  tiation etc.  If the only answers they are  capable of receiving are  creeds, doctrines, or formulae  that were drawn up centuries  ago and have very little clear  meaning in today's understanding, any attempt to  appropriate them would be in  danger of being intellectual  dishonesty.  It is not reasonable or fair,  either, to offer our young  people a greater access to  higher education, the function  of which is to whet the mind  for unfettered intellectual  enquiry, then squelch it rudely  by telling them they must  accept blindly such glorious  truths as are contained in  Christianity.  This is not intended, for one  moment, to put down those  who are able to accept, with  the beautiful honesty and simplicity of children, the truths  contained in such magnificently explicit passages as John  3:16, which the great Protestant Reformer Martin Luther said contained "the  whole gospel".  But it is to point out the  difficulty which presents itself  to the highly educated young  person with a rich and healthy  curiosity asking questions  which are not satisfactorily  explored by the creeds, by  today's terms of reference.  The question that would  seem profitable for the church  to address, if it wishes to be  viable and effective in today's  ministry, is whether the  cornerstone is bright and  sharp and clearly visible.  Or whether it needs to have  the moss and rime of age  scraped off, and its true  beauty once again exposed?

ANNOUNCING BRITISH COLUMBIA'S  NEW EMPLOYMENT STANDARDS ACT.  YOUR RIGHTS ARE  PROTECTED IF YOU'RE  EVER LAID OFF.  British Columbia's new  Employment Standards Act  (1981) protects your rights as  an employee better than ever  before.  If you're laid off, your right  to receive notice, vacation  pay and wages owed is  clearly defined in the new  law.  In most circumstances, your  employer is obliged to give  written notice. The  minimum is two weeks  if you have worked at  least six consecutive months  for that employer. This  increases after three years,  with each year worked.  There are a number of  circumstances in which  written notice is not  required, such as dismissal  for just cause.  The New  Employment Standards Act  IT MAKES BC ABETTER  PLACE TO WORK  The amount of vacation pay  due to you is also set by law,  and is proportionate to  wages earned and years  worked.  The regulations concerning  termination do not apply to  certain industries, due to the  nature of work.  If you believe your employer  has contravened the Act, you  may file a complaint with the  Employment Standards  Branch, Ministry of Labour.  For further information, and  a leaflet dealing with  Termination of Employment,  contact your nearest  provincial Ministry of Labour  office.

Bradley J Benson Pholo  Resource strategy  badly needed  by Dave Barrett  The Socred government  excuse for the massive tax  increases levied on our citizens by this year's provincial  budget repeatedly pretends  the only other choice was  deficit financing.  This underlines one of the  fundamental differences between the New Democratic  Party and the coalition cabinet.  We believe that the people  of this fortunate province have  a third means available for  both broadening our economic  strength and creating the  additional wealth for improving social conditions.  The development of a  resource strategy which helps  the private sector diversify  with more secondary and  tertiary industry as well as  ensuring that the public  sector receives its fair share  of the revenues which come  from Crown-owned resources  has been a hallmark of NDP  policy.  Secondary and tertiary industry not only creates more  jobs but also brings a much  needed stability to an economy that primary industries  cannot accomplish as easily  because they are subject to  boom and bust cycles of  demand from abroad. Stability  in turn improves the psychological climate for business to  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  .

Vancouver BC Established 1967  SUNSHINE INTERIORS  MOUTH HO. ( KIWANIS WAV  ( OWOHa. 886-8167    t  flourish in the service industry  and even in the riskier enterprises that can generate  economic specialization.  Ensuring the public sector  receives its proper share of  resource development benefits can come from joint  private-public ventures and  appropriate royalty or tax  programs.  The present budget shows  there is no resource strategy  aimed at these goals. At a  time when one minister  makes speeches about a  booming mineral industry, the  Finance Minister admits government policies will result in  decreased revenues from our  mineral resources - so sales  taxes, income taxes and other  citizen levies must go up  instead.  The first NDP administration's investments in  Westcoast Transmission and  other resource related private  ventures along with establishment of the B.C. Petroleum  Corporation, Railwest and  similar initiatives were  consciously aimed at broadening B.C.'s total economy as a  direct spinoff of resource  development. And it produced  major new revenues for the  provincial treasury too.  In contrast, today we have a  government that arbitrarily  ha* awarded a major natural  gas pipeline project to B.C.  Hydro in a deliberate refusal  to even look at competing  proposals from private firms  which offered, among other  things, creation of a liquified  natural gas plant in B.C.  which would have increased  jobs as well as provincial  revenues from gas royalties.  Also we are witnessing an  enormous gamble of subsidizing coal exports from one  part of the province to the  detriment  of another  part.  Whatever else these arbitrary coalition cabinet decisions signify, they certainly  do not represent a resource  strategy that maximizes benefits to our economy and our  treasury.  That's one of the reasons  our personal taxes are being  hiked and inflation is fed  more fuel by Premier Bennett's latest budget. We say  there is a better and more  rational way of increasing  wealth in British Columbia.

WORKERS*  COMPENSATION.  NOT USING IT  COULD COST  YOUR BUSINESS  A BUNDLE.  With all the other problems  of operating a small business, it's  sometimes easy to put off or  overlook the responsibility of  ensuring that your business is  protected by the Workers'  Compensation Board.  And that could be one of  the most expensive omissions  you ever made.  Because, if one of your  workers is involved in an on-  the-job accident, you would  be liable for the entire  cost of his injuries and  rehabilitation���a cost that  could be many times that of  compensation coverage.  Don't risk it. A simple phone  call or visit to any W.C.B. office will  give you all the information you  need about compulsory or elective  coverage. You'll find that, for a  small cost, you can buy a big piece  of "peace of mind".

Chan  Dated: April 18, 1981  File number 2400522  It isn't always easy  Sixty-seven strange, reported cases  by Carl Chrismas  Readers of the Vancouver  Daily Province's 'Coffee  Break' column of January  12th, 1980, may have been  shocked, embarrassed, or just  titillated, depending on their  moral turpitude or sense of  humour.  The article appears to be a  re-print from W. Gifford-  Jones "The Doctor Game".  It was written to provide  women with a last laugh on  men who have smirked at embarrassing medical problems  of women. Here then, is what  could be called "The Fractured Penis Syndrome".  There have been 67 reported cases of this strange  and embarrassing malady in  world medical journals. W.  Gilford-Jones tells of harrowing experiences suffered by  males who have become  unfortunate victims while in  the throes of engaging in the  delightful mating game. Some  were not even mating.  One incident involved a  sheepherder who was watching his flock from a tree. He  went to sleep and fell out of  the tree onto a wooden bar,  sustaining a most painful  fracture. Another had the  same thing happen when he  simply rolled over in bed.  They were both dreaming at  the time!  Newlyweds seem to be  prone to many of these  strange fractures, I suppose  due to experimentation and  lack of experience. One poor  fellow had it happen to  him while performing in the  standing position. His bride  fainted, slipped and fell to the  floor.  Others have suffered  serious knocks during the  night while their gorge was up  by bumping into chairs,  bedposts and doors, while  others have sustained fractures by being kicked during a  fight or attacked by a savage  animal.

One fellow was  thrown against the dashboard  when the car came to a sudden  stop. God knows what position  he was in at the time.  Another hit the saddle knob  of the motorcycle he was  riding with a friend, a scenario  which requires a vivid imagination, to say the least.  I have had my finger  slammed in a car door and it  was most painful. Imagine the  poor guy with his throbbing  extremity suffering the same  fate! It's enough to make one  decide that love making was  injurious to one's health.  Treatment of the injury  depends on the severity of the  break. A blood clot requires  surgery; severe swelling can  be reduced with ice packs or  anti-inflammatory drugs; tranquillizers can be given to calm  the patient and keep him limp  and at times a catheter is';!  required to enable the patient;  to void. And where a break is  a bad one, tongue depressors:  have been used as splints.  Hospitalization is usually  about two weeks while normal  sexual activities resume in  about eight weeks.

If sun  exposure is not sufficient.  which might occur here on the  coast during the odd rainy  month, it is necessary to  obtain vitamin D from the  diet.  Vitamin D is found in fish  liver oils and many milk and  cereal products. The recommended amount of vitamin D  is about 400IU.  Vitamin D is toxic when  taken for long periods of time  Nausea, weakness, weight  loss, constipation, vague  aches, stiffness, kidney failure  and death have occurred  because of excess consump-  ******* #:$::^^.  tion of D.

Ofthe five,  three are from the Skink  family, one is a Horned Lizard  and the other is an alligator  Lizard. Here in southern B.C.  we have the Western Skink  and the Northern Alligator  Lizard.  All Lizards have scales and  can be distinguished from  salamanders by this feature as  salamanders have a smooth  glandular skin. Lizards also  have external ear openings,  movable, skin-covered eyelids  and movable, transparent "inner" eyelids.. Many Lizards  have   an   effective   defense  mechanism and that is the tail  readily breaks off if it is  grabbed and the missing  portion is regenerated. Some  species of Lizards have brightly coloured tails in the young,  especially the Skink family  and it wiggles on its own when  detached so the predator is  distracted by (he moving tail  while   the   Lizard   escapes.  Skinks have smooth, polished looking scales and our  Western Skink has a pattern of  light longitudinal stripes, from  the nose all the way down to  the tail, on a dark background.  These stripes are most vivid in  the young and they darken  with age. Young Western  Skinks have a bright blue  tail that becomes duller in  colour in adults and grey in  I RESTAURANTS L  Chinese & Western Food Licensed Premises  Tuesday to Sunday  Lunch: 11:30- 3 pm Dinner: 4:30 - 9 pm  Sat. 4 Sun.

The Northern Alligator Lizard is our largest Lizard,  growing to 23 cm. The Alligator Lizards have a forked  tongue, they have the typical  Lizard shape with a long tail.  They have strong legs each  with five digits. The Northern  Alligator Lizard is brown on  the back with irregular dark  spots, the sides are grey. It  has a prominent longitudinal  fold along each side of the  body that expands when the  Lizard breathes, eats or when  carrying young.  The Alligator Lizard gives  birth to live, well developed  young that are miniatures of  the adults. Western Skinks  lay eggs, usually under a log  or a rock.

If a commercial fisherman  has not received his 1981  'H' tab (s), new C.F.V. plate  and appropriate licence certificates before he leaves for  the fishing grounds, arrangements should be made to have  them forwarded to the location  in which they will be fishing.

There is increasing concern  that our fishery and coastal  environment will be sacrificed  for the resource extraction  projects planned for B.C. in  the near future. For government these projects are  tempting - quick bucks and  quick jobs. Never mind that  resource industries are capital  intensive   but   require   less  labour input than secondary  industries which are harder  to develop and require more  resourcefulness and planning.  Perhaps the greatest tragedy from an environmental  viewpoint are the effects now  being felt in the commercial  and sports fishery.  We are now on the threshold of a series of massive  resource and energy projects:  Amax Mining, Kemano II and  the Stikine River Developments, the Prince Rupert coal  port, northeastern coal mining  and the Hat Creek coal  thermal plant. All'could adversely   affect   fish   stocks.  Already there has been a  steady deterioration of the  quality of fish  habitat,  yet  pollution and the violation of  fisheries regulations escalates. Stocks have been reduced to the point where they  have fallen to about one-half  of usual levels.  The federal government  recently and finally moved to  stop the deterioration of fish  habitat and ocean environment but these measures  come after years of neglect.  They are desperate acts.  Ironically, at the same time,  the government is supporting  projects like Amax which will  dump mine tailings into Alice  Arm even when its own panel  of scientists recommend a-  gainst it.  We cannot continue to sell  out our minerals and forests  without consideration of the  delicate balance which links  human existence with the  natural environment. B.C.  was built on the sale of 'rocks  and logs' but must we maintain this rapacious record into  the 21st' century? Resources  such as the fishery once  depleted and abused to a  certain extent may not be able  to recover. The problem is not  one of finding someone to  blame for the state of the  coastal environment. We need  careful management of these  resources and sensible rates  of use and extraction which  allow a healthy regeneration  to take place. We also need a  government aware of the  inter-relationships between  environmental systems and of  the measures needed to protect them.  As it stands, too many of  B.C's resource industries have  been handed huge tracts of  forest or mineral rights  without the appropriate discussion or concern for environmental standards. Many  of these companies are owned  outside the province - the  incentive is not there for these  companies to be concerned  if government representatives  do not care themselves.  The tragedy of the fishery  which we are experiencing  today teaches us a bitter  lesson - the role of government is not to sell out our  heritage, neither is it to stop  all resource related growth,  it must promote this type of  growth, along with others by  seriously considering the impact of this growth on this and  future generations within the  delicate environmental framework we live in.  be picked up at their nearest  Fisheries and Oceans office.  Industry is reminded to  allow 3-4 weeks for delivery  of their licence after submission and that applications  brought to the office may be  left and picked up at a prearranged date, or the licence  may be mailed.  Salmon vessel owners are  reminded that licence fees  are doubled this year.  there is an additional  $10.00 registration fee for all  vessels.  All applications for 1981  renewal mast be received or  postmarked not later than  May 31, 1981. The Social  Insurance Number must accompany the renewal in order  that a new vessel card can be  issued.

WY0~m*��Kb*  Dnrgrorn Source:  Th* r*.iivf Solar Enerfy I  by Gordon Wilson  With the late 1970"s and early 1980's came a growing  interest in solar energy and its application to industrial  uses. A brief scan of the popular sections in most book  stores will uncover a vast number of publications relating  to everything from solar hot water heaters, to solar  greenhouses and food fryers. In fact there is so much  data available, and much of it contradictory, that the  layperson has a difficult time wading through it all.  Unfortunately, the fast buck artists, and charlatans of  our society know this, and have been quick to get into  the "Solar Niche".  This recent interest in "Solar Energy" has come about  largely due to the increasing cost of conventional fossil  fuels that heat our homes. The economic imperative has  caused many residents on the Sunshine Coast and B.C.  generally, to consider the options of either retrofitting  their existing homes, or building in solar systems to a  new house structure. The problems come, however,  when the relatively uninformed are "sold" on systems  that may not be adequate for their needs, or may in fact  be so expensive to install that the payback period for the  system is so long that it is unlikely that the owner will in  the long run benefit from them.  What is attempted here, then, is not so much a  detailed analysis of potential solar applications, but  rather a look at the very basics of solar energy i.e. what is  it, how does it work, and why would you use it; and  secondly to try to assess the different costs of installing a  system.  Solar Energy - What is it?  Essentially the sun is an enormous fusion reactor that  operates at an extremely high temperature. This  reaction emits an almost constant flow of electromagnetic radiation. Some of the energy released is in the  form of electrons, and photons. The amount of this  radiation that is intercepted by the earth is vastly greater  than the world's requirements. However, this energy is  diffused, and is spread over only one half of the earth at  one time and in varying intensities depending upon the  geographic location. At night the incoming radiation  drops to zero of course. The idea of solar energy is to  captivate a portion of this incoming radiation and use its  energy to heat your hot water, or your entire home.  There are two principle methods of capturing this  energy. First by using the "passive" method, the second  using the "active" method.  How does it work?  Passive Solar Heat:���The passive solar heat system is  achieved by providing south face skylights, or windows  that allow the incoming solar energy to penetrate the  house, and heat the contents within. The key in this  system, and the item that is most often overlooked is the  need for storage of the heated air. Don't be fooled into  thinking that any house with a few south face windows is  passively heated. No doubt there will be some heat  generated by the south face exposure, but if the house is  not well insulated, and if there is an abundance of north  and east facing windows that cannot be effectively shut  off, much of the heat will be lost.  Ther are various methods of storing incoming solar  energy by "passive" means. The most common is to  construct a greenhouse type structure with a rock bed  floor on the south face ol the house. The floor level of the  solar greenhouse should be several feet below the floor  of the house itself. This effectively provides what is called  a heat sink. The incoming radiation is absorbed by the  small rocks on the floor of the building and the absorbed  heat is then distributed into the house. Effective shutters  must be provided to prevent heat loss at night, and on  ^cloudy days when there is limited incoming energy.  *i.6crtucj.  user  LIVING  About the Author  Gordon Wilson is a resident of the Sunshine Coast, living  near Middlepoint and has personally experimented with solar  heating on his own home. Gordon lectures on the subjects of  Economics and Environmental Geography for Capilano College  at their Norlh Vancouver and Sechelt campuses. On May 1, he  will be leaving for Australia and Fiji for a five-week, privately  funded Study Exchange on the subjects of Solar and Wind  technology as it applies to marginal (small scale) agriculture.  Many of you will know Gordon as the character Mortimer  Brewster in "Arsenic and Old Lace", Ihe Suncoast Players  production of last January.  A second method is the use of the Trombe wall. The  Trombe wall has been used in the Solar Co-op Housing  project in Kitsilano, Vancouver and also at U.B.C in the  experimental solar home. The wall absorbs heat on its  black surface and radiates it into the house.

Despite the claims of the passive heat advocates, the  facts clearly show that in the climate ofthe West Coast,  passive heating alone will not provide sufficient year  round energy to meet average demand. The major factor  that makes the passive system feasible is the amount and  quality of insulation in the home. With effective insulation  and some measure of conservation on the part of the  inhabitant, a home could be designed and built that  gained much of its heat demand (about 65%) from a  passive system, but a back-up system is needed, i.e.  wood, electric, gas (if available) or oil. Many argue, and  with some economic validity that if we have to go to the  expense of installing a back-up system anyway, (on the  Sunshine Coast wood is perhaps the cheapest) then why  not limit the expense of the thermal glass used in the  south face and insulate instead?  The point here is that passive solar heat provided by  the Sunshine Coast climate cannot provide total heat  required regardless of how the home is designed or  refitted, but it can help, and the money saved may be  used to assist other methods such as an "active  collector".  Active Collection:���Unlike "passive collection", active  collection attempts to actively capture and store  incoming energy. There is a wide variety of systems that  can be used to perform this function, the most common  however, is the flat plate collector. The principle behind  this system is quite simple. The idea is to use the sun's  energy to heat up a substance, usually air or water, but  sometimes gas such as freon, and store that heat in some  form of storage facility. The stored heat is then used to  meet your domestic demand.  The principle advantage of the active collector is that  you can actually heat your water by the sun and thus  directly reduce a substantial portion (as much as 80%) of  your hot water heating costs. Once again however, I  caution the reader. That figure is an average over a year  and keep in mind that the coast area has one of the  poorest climates in Canada in terms of the measure of  incoming solar radiation. Its advantage is that it is one of  the mildest, if not the mildest regions in the country.  Depending upon the site and the type of structure of  an existing house, retrofitting an active collecting system  may be more practical than attempting the major  structural change that passive systems would entail.  Recent research has shown that 41% of construction  companies polled would not undertake retrofitting of  older homes because so many homes built in the days of  cheap oil (the late 40's and 50's) were so poorly  constructed initially that it makes little economic sense  to install expensive solar innovations.  Flat plate collectors are a fine source of hot water heat  for swimming pools, and several are in use on the Coast.  Similarly, summer cottages could in many cases make  use of flat plate solar collectors to heat hot water for  domestic use, and have a sufficient supply for 100% of the  hot water needs during the summer months.  Why use Solar Heat?  If solar energy cannot provide all of your needs, then  why use it? The answer really lies in your individual  needs, your expectations in terms of heat usage and  lifestyle.  Firstly, you can save money if you install an  appropriate "Combination of Systems". No one  system will provide all of your demand. However, active  hot water collection plus passive collection with a wood  backup system may, if your home is designed with heat  efficiency in mind, reduce your utility costs by as much as  85%, and that makes sense! But how do you know what  system to use? That's where your expectations and  lifestyle come into play.  It is imperative that we realize that the days of cheap  fossil fuels are gone, and that the lifestyle that was  afforded by cheap oil has gone with it. Some rethinking  of our approach to living is called for, and along with that  an "appropriate" technology if we realize that one's  wants must fall in line with the environment's capacity to  support them. Perhaps the most primitive fact in favour  of solar energy is, that unlike fossil fuels, solar does not  add to the earth's heat load. The average family requires  only about 22��C heat to be comfortable in their home,  and a hot water load of about 50��C (122��F). That really is  not a great deal of heat. As such, generating that amount  of heat is a relatively simple thing to do. But that heat  must be conserved. I cannot stress strongly enough the  need for such conservation. It is fundamental to the  success of any system. Look for or build a house with a  high degree of conservation; that is, well insulated walls,  floors, and most importantly, ceilings plus thermal glazed  windows with effective shutter systems. Consider a  combination of active and passive systems if building  from scratch. And seek good, reliable advice before  you start. Be most careful of people who try to "sell"  solar as the answer to all your needs before examining  your actual situation with regard to site, southern  exposure, and amount of available sun. If you live on the  norlh slope ol Elphinstone with high trees all around your  property, solar is definitely not for youl  Next Week: How to Plan Your System, and  What Does It Cost.
