 Out with a dash,  in with a splash  Racing Into the frigid waters of Davis Bay,  about 30 hardy souls took a ritual bath in  the Strait of Georgia Friday to welcome the  New Year. The annual polar bear swim,  sponsored by Sunshine Coast Lions Clubs,  attracted 300 onlookers content  to watch the revelling from shore.  Glen Dixon, Ken Norgaard and Jamie  McKinney were awarded trophies for  staying in longest  Joel Johnstone photo  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  January 4,1993 Volume 47 Issue 1  Sechelt band speaks out on theatre, Tyee changes  by Charles Hart  The Sechelt Indian Band has moved  quickly to dispell any impression that it  has fired employees at the Raven's Cry  Theatre and Tyee Air.  Chief Tom Paul told the Coast News  Tuesday that both businesses are being  restructured under new managements  and pending the outcome of the reorganization employees have been laid off.  "The band did not fire the theatre staff,"  he said.  Paul said the band council had no  experience managing a performing arts  Lay offs temporary while businesses restructured, chief says  vemue and decided it would be better to  appoint an independent board of directors to run the theatre. A meeting is  scheduled for today (Jan. 4) between  the band and potential directors.  Paul said he believes such a board  would be better qualified to go after  provincial grants and other sources of  cash to help with funding, and he did  not rule out the band continuing to pay  Sechelt youths  target vehicles in  unseasonal rash  of vandalism  An Alberta resident visiting  the Coast for Christmas says he  is outraged that a group of  youths were allowed to go on a  rampage in Sechelt last Tuesday, and charged the RCMP  with being unwilling to do anything about it.  Clark Smith said a group of  23 to 30 youths  massed at the Shell ������  station on Cowrie  Street swarmed his  vehicle as he was  driving by about 9  pm.  He said they  kicked and pounded  on the roof and tore  off the windshield  wipers and reflectors. He estimated that his vehicle suffered  $2,000 worth of damage.  When Clark went to file a  complaint with the RCMP, he  said there was only one officer  on duty who was unwilling lo  assist.  "My concern is lhal if Ihe  RCMP aren't going to do anything, it'll keep happening ...  'Right now  we have no  suspects'  -Cpl. TomArmell  It's like paying them for nothing."  Clark noted he was not the  only motorist targeted and said  there was a line up of people at  the police detachment when he  got there. He also said that several people were beaten up in  the melee.  A Sechelt busi-    ness man who witnessed the events of  Tuesday night  agreed with Smith's  account of the situation.  The     business  man who wished to          remain unidentified,  said the there were  about 30 youths in the Shell  parking lot and perhaps 25 more  youths loitering along Ihe block.  He said the youths were  pelting cars with snowballs as  they drove by but some vehicles  where physically attacked.  "I'd say there were six or  eight kids who were really out  of line," the business man said,  "the rest were followers."  He said he was aware of a  large number of complainants at  the police station but nothing  was done.  "I know the police drove by  once," he said, "but the kids  started throwing snowballs at  them so they left."  "I can confirm there were a  number of youths creating a disturbance in the down town area  for an hour or so that night,"  Corporal Tom Armett said on  Thursday, "but they had left the  scene before the police arrived."  Armett acknowledged some  damagewas done to vehicles by  the youth activities saying,  "There were a couple of cars  vandalised in Ihe process .and a  couple of reports made to the  police the next day on that issue  but right now we have no suspects."  some subsidy towards operation. "Until  we meet with the people we can't really  discuss it."  As for the employees who have been  laid off, "those staff will be called back  for bookings" which the Raven's Cry  has already lined up for this year, starting in February, Paul said. He noted  that the theatre usually operates in the  red during the month of December; the  ___2J_ L-��-t:   band council deemed it more appropriate to shut it down while management  changes are made.  A similar situation prevails at Tyee  Air, Paul said. The charter air company,  which has been operating from the  Coast for 33 years, ceased to exist  under that name Jan. 1 under a business  arrangement with Air Rainbow of  Nanaimo. But Paul stressed that the  band, which owned 75 per cent of Tyee  shares, has not sold the business.  "We're just reorganizing it so we can  get a better bang for the buck. We needed someone who could push and be a  better drive behind the business."  Some employees have been laid off  pending managment discussions and a  meeting is scheduled in lale January to  finalize the deal. "But we still own our  interest in Tyee and we intend on maintaining it," Paul said. "It'll be up to the  new management to call the employees  back."  1992  Glancing back on a controversial year  ^^    by Jane Seyd        and Darah Hansen  JANVABX  New Year 1992 starts off  with something in the air. Trouble is, it doesn't smell very  good, as Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper (HSPP) wrestles wiih  problems of "pungent odours"  leaking from its system. Meanwhile, the mill announces further marketing of its state-of-lhe  art "chlorine-light" products to  European markets.  By the end of January, HSPP  is one of the few mills in the  province without immediate  cause for economic alarm as the  provincial governmenl  announces new "get tough"  regulations for dealing wilh pulp  mill pollution, calling for a  reduction in chlorinated organics to 1.5 kg per air-dried tonne  of pulp produced by 1995 and  "virtual elimination" of chlorine  compounds by 2001. Most mills  say it's going to cost too much,  while environmenlal activist  Terry Jacks responds by telling  the companies to "Cry Me a  River" - an unpolluted one, that  is. Throughout the rest of 1992  the government says it's standing by its policy.  Also in January, Western  Pulp's Woodfibre mill on Howe  Sound is fined $100,000 after  pleading guilty to two of four  pollution charges resulting from  an earlier spill. As part of its  defence, one mill manager notes  that Howe Sound is already  "environmentally dead" after  years of mill pollution. The  judge responds by commenting  that is "hardly" an appropriate  defence.  In other environmental  issues, a scientist offers an opinion of the Caren Range as a  "living research forest," while  regional director Jim Gurney  gives a notice of motion calling  for protection of the Tetrahedron Plateau  and Ihe Caren.  Gurney also  wades into the  fray saying the  Pender Harbour  landfill will be  closed whether  residents like it  or not. The idea  of a counter-  petition for a  Coast-wide  decision on a  central dispatch  system is also  raised.  In other events, Capilano  College opens  its expanded U  new campus at the Sechell Indian Band complex, while in  sports, young cyclist Cymbol  Wells is described as an  "incredible talent" by members  of a Coast mountain biking club.  The first draft of Gibsons  Official Community Plan is  unveiled, and high density housing on the waterfront immediately becomes a controversial  issue. In Pender Harbour, concerns over development versus  water quality are raised at a  public hearing over seniors'  housing.  Gordon Wilson, MLA and  Opposition Leader, first  announces his impending resig  nation from the Sunshine Coast  Regional District.  After years of service, the  Gibsons Bus is in financial  trouble and fonns a non-profit  society to try to stay on the road.  Meanwhile, Maverick Bus Lines  announces cuts to Coastal runs.  Ending the first month on a  sad note, a former Sechelt  woman is identified as a Vancouver murder victim.  FEBRUAKY  The month starts ominously  as a rising incidence of family  violence is reported by police.  Other kinds of violence are  also in the news as a Sechelt  store owner offers a reward  for the Stanley  Park "flamingo  killer" in Vancouver. "I'm  usually a pretty  tough cookie,"  says John  Revington, in  calling the  attack "one of  the most despicable and disgusting things  I've seen."  Meanwhile,  the Coast's first  armed hold-up  takes place at  ^^^^^^   the Sechelt  Esso Station, when two young  men in ski masks enter the store  at 6 am with a rifle, seizing cash  and six packs of cigarettes - four  Export Mediums and two Du  Maurier Kings.  Two youths are eventually  arrested and stand trial in May,  where it is revealed that the rifle  was left lying loaded in a children's play area after the robbery. Both youths are eventually  acquitted.  Another unusual robbery  takes place at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre, where an  exhibit of dresses designed by  artist Paula Seifred is stolen  after thieves cut wire for the  alarm. Displeased curator Larry  Westlake calls it "all part of our  cultural growth on the Sunshine  Coasl."  On the development front,  the Supreme Court quashes a  Gibsons bylaw aimed at controlling development on part of  Gospel Rock, saying the perceived opposition of residents  rather than geotechnical hazard  motivated Ihe bylaw. A debate  also begins in Gibsons over the  issue of a "working harbour"  when neighbouring residents  object to a proposed expansion  of Hill's Machine Shop.  In Pender Harbour, a public  hearing on a contentious new  land-use bylaw is held, where  some residents fear it will  change existing uses and affect  properly values.  In Davis Bay, residents tell  both Sechelt council and the  Ministry of Highways they  don't want a secondary highway  going through prime agricultural  land.  The Gibsons Bus announces  it needs to raise $15,000 by Ihe  end of the month in order lo  survive.  In Ihe Sechelt Indian Band,  Chief Tom Paul expresses frustration over lack of progress on  the band's laud claim proposal.  turn to page 3  ___\\  -aaa news  Regional district water quality fails acid test  by Jane Seyd  Latest results from monitoring of the  regional district's water quality show  the supply from Chapman Creek is  acidic, with the potential to corrode  household plumbing metals and leach  into drinking water.  But so far, levels of copper and lead  measured in recent samples aren't cause  for alarm.  The latest study of the regional water  system followed from an earlier 1988  survey, which found regional water naturally acidic, with a greater chance of  dissolving lead from solder and brass  faucets, and copper from plumbing, into  the water supply.  Those results have been borne out a  second time now.  According to the survey, pH (phosphorous) levels in water trom Chapman  Creek ranged from a low of 5.3 (acidic)  to a high of 7.2 (approximately neutral).  Canadian drinking water guidelines recommend pH levels ranging from 6.5 to  8.5. That means the water can be considered a "strong corrosive," states the  report.  In samples of water which actually  came out of taps feeding off the regional water supply, "significant levels" of  copper were found in all "firsl flush"  cases (after the water had been allowed  to sit for six hours), although copper  levels in Chapman Creek itself were  low. While drinking water guidelines  recommend 1 mg per litre or less,  regional samples averaged 1.4 mg of  copper per litre.  The main problem with copper is  aesthetic, which can result in blue or  green stains on fixtures, hair and cloth  ing, in the case of lead, health concerns  are more serious. However, lead levels  in regional water remain fairly low,  says Seig Lehmann, superintendent of  public works.  'For tbe regional district  tbe concerns right now  are economic, as tbe  acidic water can cause  deterioration of pipes in  household plumbing'  Canadian drinking water guidelines  recommend .05 mg of lead or less per  litre of water, while the United States  Environmental Protection Agency recommends a lower level of .015 mg of  lead or less per litre.  In the recent study, one sample of 15  exceeded Canadian standards, while  two samples were over the US recommendation.  Much higher levels of lead can lead  to health problems like tiredness,  abdominal pains, anemia and  behavioural changes in children.  For the regional district, however,  the concerns right now are more economic, as the acidic water can cause  deterioration of pipes in household  plumbing much quicker than is normally expected.  These days, the regional district uses  corrosion-resistant pipes and linings in  its distribution system, but there are  older parts of the system which could  still be affected.  So far, says Lehmann, it's not much  cause for worry. Further study will be  carried out in 1993. The first step will  then be addition of potash to the water  system, says Lehmann, which lowers  the acidity of Ihe water. If necessary,  addition of special "corrosion-  inhibitors" to the water may also be  considered.  The acidity of regional district water  on the Sunshine Coasl is similar to that  of Vancouver, which recently banned  use of lead or tin solder in new plumbing construction.  In the meantime, the report recommends letting the tap run for a while  first thing in the morning.  Hot water straight from the tap is  also not recommended for cooking,  making baby formula or drinking - let it  run cold then heat il up in the kettle or  on the stove.

V7P IRS  987-1929- 9872023  Improved qualtiy of life goal of health grants  Thinking aboul starting that support  group? Or perhaps you want to initiate a  community project but don't know how to  to go about getting funding? Well, the local  health unit is trying to make it easier.  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit (CGHU) currently has $24,000 available for healthy community projects around the Coast.  According to CGHU director Paul Mar-  tique, any group or individual with a worthy  project will be considered for grant money.  "The purpose (of the grants) is to improve  or increase the health of the community,"  Martique said.  "The money is basically to help groups  that otherwise wouldn't have the money to  get started."  Martique said there is no limit placed on  project scope as long as it enhances coastal  life, and proposals will receive an amount of  money gauged on their individual merits.  "We're basically looking at a community  development theme," he said, "which helps a  community help itself through seed money."  Martique said any grants given will be  considered "on-time funding" basis. "That  means we get (the groups) off the ground, we  get ihem started with a single grant but they  "There is no limit placed  on project scope as long as  it enhances coastal life'  have to find ways to continue their funding  after a year has ended. We won't fund them  again after a year."  Martique said the CGHU has already  received two applications for grants, one of  which is from a Sechelt resident interested in  solving Sechelt's youth loitering problem.  Resident Genevieve Lamarchand has garnered the support of both Sechelt council and  the school hoard for a youth program which  would involve using Chatelech Secondary as  a base of operations for after-hours youth  activities.  Lamarchand is seeking a grant from the  CGHU to enable her to create a far reaching  proposal to be presented at the upcoming  Healthy Communities summit Feb. 23.  At thai meeting, the local government  officials, public representatives and Ministry  of Health (MOH) representatives will try to  decide how best to use a $15,000 MOH grant  toward making the Coast a better place to  live.  The Coast is eligible for a second MOH  grant of $15,000 to continue any decided-on  project as long as the amount is matched  from within the community.  Grant applications are available through  the Gibsons health unit and Martinez said  proposals would be considered as they arrive  rather than waiting until all are in. A tentative deadline has been set for Feb. 15, but  Martique said proposals would still be considered after that time.  New video prods environmental conscience  by Jane Seyd  It's been in the works for the  last six months, but by the time  il reaches viewers this week  local resident Terry Jacks' new  video release will clock in at  just under 30 seconds.  The video, which is airing as  a commercial on CBC, BCTV  and UTV television between  Dec. 23 and Jan. 12, points to  the effects of environmental  degradation on aboriginal people.  Specifically, it features  Sophie Thomas of the Carrier  Band at Stony Creek on the  Netchako River speaking on the  destruction of her traditional  lands.  Jacks, who last    __^__  year received an  award   for   his  environmental  video The Faceless Ones, said he  produced      the  video lo raise pub-    ���"������*********"  lie awareness during the United  Nations year of the indigenous  people in 1993.  Environmental issues like  deforestation and dam building  are problems which affect  The video does  not point fingers  at any specific  companies'  native people worldwide, said  Jacks.  "It happens on the Old Man        River in  Saskatchewan and  it happens on the  Amazon," he says.  "There are some  things in the world  that are happening  environmentally  that are very common.  "This is happening to (aboriginal people) but it all reflects  on us," says Jacks. "It makes  you wake up and say 'Hey  that's us too'."  He says the video does not  point fingers at any specific  companies. It's meant instead lo  bring out "closet activists," he  comments.  The video was made mostly  with donated labour, while air  time on the TV stations was  paid for by Jacks, the Sierra  Club, Mountain Equipment Coop and Ihe Western Canada  Wilderness Committee, among  others.  "It was a very difficult task  lo do in 30 seconds," Jacks says.  "...I would have liked to have  had half an hour."

In the last few whirlwind days the outgoing leader of  the world's only remaining superpower has visited the  troops in charge of the humanitarian mission to Somalia  and flown from that equatorial desert directly to the wintry environs of Moscow to sign a Salt II agreement with  Boris Yeltsin to reduce the number of lethal nuclear  weapons, which do not dematerialize because the cold  war is officially over.  Along the way, in Somalia, Bush even found time to  say a few gracious words to the American troops about  their incoming Commander in Chief, Bill Clinton.  All in all, a bravura performance by a President who  was always more comfortable on the world stage than in  the less glamorous cockpit of social need and inequity  that his country also represents.  Despite these most welcome indications of a world  which may in fact be changing for the better, in the sense  of being less fraught with deadly peril and less indifferent  to avoidable human suffering, there are a few cautionary  notes which must be sounded as we venture into a brand  new year.  To take the President's forays in sequential order:  though Somalia is undoubtedly the flavour of the month  in terms of international humanitarian concern and  though the decent but shallow man who has been the  leader of the world's most powerful nation for the past  four years is obviously glowing in self-congratulation  about the American role there, it would be well if the  Americans could remember that they played a role in creating the tragedy of Somalia, as well as their present role  in ameliorating it.  A country without law and order or the means of feeding its people but awash in the leftover armaments of the  cold war; where killing takes precedence over sharing  and the killers callously preen with their lethal armoury  whilst their fellows around die in the agony of starvation  is a terrible symbol of the world we have been living in  and still may not escape.  In the case of the trip to Moscow, assuredly welcome  though it is, the dangers do not disappear after the flash  bulbs have provided Yeltsin and Bush with their photo  opportunities. There are republics other than Yeltsin's  Russia in which are stored the weapons of mass destruction and even in Russia Yeltsin's control of a hardline  parliament seems tenuous at best.  That parliament will have to ratify what Yeltsin and  Bush signed last weekend.  This is not said to deny George Bush a graceful exit  from the world stage. But the dangers which beset us  remain in man-made profusion.  Until the feeding of the hungry and the disarming of  brutally callous and greedy forces in the world becomes a  constant in international policy, the glimmering of good  news which greets us in 1993 cannot be the harbinger of  new years to come full of peace and prosperity.  The steps we celebrate at the outset of 1993 are but the  first steps out of the pit of cruel danger which is the modern world. We have yet a staircase to climb together.  letters  A land offered by  divine promise  I cannot agree lhat the persons we refer to as Indian are  native or aboriginal, or that Ihey  represent a first nation. The  archaeological evidence has, in  this case, been unabashedly misconstrued, evidence of earlier  people neglected.  I cannot accept lhat anyone  has a claim on this land or its  resources that superscribes my  own. To my people it is a land  offered by divine promise and  accepted by Saint Brendan long  ago.  1 know that as this controversy lingers we as a collective  people are fragmenting into cultural camps. I too have ceased  calling myself Canadian and  defer to my ethnic self.  I fear that the chance at peace  is lost. Salvation may be in  strength or not at all.  DANIEL BAREHAM  Sechelt  Pender lakes  need protection  I see by local papers that an  attempt is being made to keep  fertilizer off the watershed of  Chapman Creek.  I wish there were as much  consideration shown for the  lakes around Pender Harbour.  Of course, there is a saying that  anything is good enough for  Pender Harbour and it appears  so. since Hotel Lake and Garden  Bay Lake have had more than a  reasonable supply of houses  dumped upon their shores,  despite lhe fact that these lakes  ate drinking water.  Now ihey are planning the  same for Lillie's or Paq Lake.  Thirty houses for senior citizens  is the plan. A shack town to  spoil the look of a beautiful  lake. This lake is a secondary  source of drinking waler. A man  from Victoria spoke to a meeting about lakes in Madeira Park  and told us that when more pollution shows up in lakes, more  chlorine is added lo the drinking  water.  Chlorine is a poison that  causes cancer but no one seems  to care, although they know that  fish get cancer when chlorine is  dumped in their swimming  water, and people can read of  surveys conducted on cancer  and chlorine.  Some of the people who  don't care have lost family  members from cancer. Is that  why they choose to inflict the  risk on other people, including  the young who have no vote?  If we were protected against  density housing around lakes,  there would be less pollution  and less chlorine.  I have noticed lhat since Pender Harbour has been on community water supply wilh chlorine added, there has been a  great increase in cases of cancer. Think back, people!  Why is it that when a developer asks to have the zoning  changed, he always gets it? I  know why he asks - money. But  why does the regional board  agree lo a change? They do not  get paid for the change.  VIOLET TYNER  Madeira Park  Native understanding lacking  The letter 'Native comments  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

VON 3A0  out of line' (Coast News Dec.  21) deserves an answer by a  native, so here it is. Julie Flag  says "I really think that the  Sechelt Nation should take a  long hard look at themselves."  In a way she is right, but she  doesn't understand the entire  situation otherwise she would  have phrased her statements in a  different way. We Sechelters  have been in the salmon  enhancement business since  1978. Her understanding that it  was delayed and put through the  appropriate legal channels is  wrong. This process never did  go through the appropriate  channels. All Flag has to do is  ask any of the directors on the  regional board. The planning  department was never asked to  assist in the decision regarding  the sinking of the Chaudiere.  Furthermore, Mr. Stan Dixon  wrote a letter to the SCRD a few  years ago regarding the Sechelt  Inlet becoming the dead sea  (that letter should be on file in  their office).  The Sechelt Indian band  wanted a two-week delay so it  took to the courts because it was  Ihe lasl resort it had to request a  delay in the sinking. It failed, so  the Sechelt band, the only recognized native government in  this province, was never given  the opportunity by the court to  show why the ship should not  be sunk in Sechelt Inlet. That is  the issue. Anything else mentioned is just BS.  JEROME JULIAN  Sechelt band member  A future where 'Luck's a chance but trouble's sure?  And so we venture timidly into another brand  new year, with its challenges and opportunities, its  triumphs and disasters, its joys and its tragedies as  yet undreamt of. May you, dear reader, pick your  way through the possibilities with prudence while  still reserving the right to the occasional outburst  of unscheduled spontaneity and delight  The poet A. E. Housman, a man of stoic pessimism, explained his usually dark verses as follows: "Whilst the sun and moon endure/ Luck's a  chance bul trouble's sure/ I'd face it as a wise man  should/ And train for ill and not for good."  It's good advice to carry with you in tbe new  year. When I was a younger man, though I always  reverberated to Houseman's diamond hard phrasing and spare and eloquent verses, I disdained his  bleakness of outlook.  I thought that I knew, ah dear foolish, long gone  youth, that man was a perfectible animal and  through the debris and the rubble of historic  tragedy we were picking our way towards a clear  and sunlit future where all our potential could  come to bloom and joy and peace and love would  live forever.  'The Kingdom of Heaven is within" the Scripture* adjured me from my earliest memories and I  thought all we had to do was find the combination  and unlock the safe and release the joyous kingdom.  I am lets sanguine today. It may be that the  individual cu attain a new plateau of peace and  musings  john burnside  enlightenment in the all-too-brief time we have at  our disposal. But for the starving masses, being  bom and greeting starvation in numbers undreamt  of when this century saw its beginning, it is hard to  see what lies ahead other thain human suffering on  a scale not yet recorded by the tear-stained, blood-  soaked history of our species.  There will be those of this or that spiritual persuasion who might think, and even rush to assure  me, that they hold the candle of understanding  which might light my way through the gloom of  these perceptions. I am glad they have found the  support they have. May it comfort their days.  But when I look around me at the world we live  in as 1993 gets under way I cannot help but be  struck by the Act that, with tbe occasional exception, there where the fighting is fiercest and the  hatred most high you will find a religious component  If there is extant today a sect which believes in  a pantheistic view of creation I am unaware of it.  Perhaps the aboriginal peoples of Australia and  North America may be groping their way back to a  sense of God being in everything and everywhere,  but the spiritual imperialism of the monotheists has  been every bit as crushing as the economic imperialism which followed hard on its heels and, indeed,  used the presence of the missionaries as often as  not as an excuse to send in the troops.  Where it is agreed that there is one God and he  is the creator and the master of all, where that is  not in dispute, there the fighting is fiercest.  Moslems, Christians and sects of Christians, and  Jews glare at each over arsenals undreamt of by the  barbarians of yesteryear. Never did the marauding  Vikings nor the all-conquering Mongols command  the means of maiming and destroying now abundant and in killing hands.  I have a problem with all this, I'm afraid.  Though the world I see is one assuredly of spiritual  darkness I am disinclined to find comfort with any  sect that believes that the means one chooses to  give thanks to the creator of all is reason enough  for barbarity and bloodshed.  The ancient Druids are said to have believed  that '.Ml Gods are one God' but, as happened all  over the world, their tolerance just got them swept  aside by the onrush of the true believers who  believed that to deviate from their standard of worship was akin to deepest darkest wickedness.  All this being said, it must surely also be said  that the world which greets us at the outset of 1993  is a world marginally less terrifying than has been  the case for the last two generations.  The newspaper headlines and the television  commentators with a living to make, tend to focus  on the bad news and the drama of tragedy and  despair. But there are fewer wars being fought  today than at any time in the 1980s. There are the  same number of news stories about wan, but that  is not the same thing.  Politically, the United Nations seems to be freeing itself from the shackles of the cold war which  paralysed it and is beginning to take tentative steps  towards becoming an agent at least seeking world  order and may be discovering that it has the means,  in some limited sense, to impose it.  Apart from ancient hatreds, the darkest cloud  which hangs over us is the man-made cloud of pollution. Never has it been more abundantly clear  that we are passengers together on a finite system.  A narrow skin of air makes life possible, water and  earth are finite too and cannot forever sustain the  abuse we have been heaping on and in them since  the industrial revolution began and bid fair to do so  in ever increasing numbers as the tide of humanity  rises geometrically.  Unless we get control of our waste products we  will not last long enough to solve any of tbe  ancient questions of man and God. That harsh truth  will stay with us throughout the year.  May you find peace to ponder in 1993.

Knowing myself as well as I do,  I recognize resolutions for what  they are: a sure path to failure,  disappointment and plain, old-  fashioned guilt.  Which we can all live without. Instead, I find the dawning  of a New Year is the best time  to look back at the old. My  annual hope is that a review of  the highs and lows of the 12  months just passed will help  point out events and milestones  to guide me through the next  year. There is, after all, no  teacher like experience.  That said, what follows is a  heavily-edited capsule of memorable moments from my 1992  wanderings.

The routine down-sizing of the crew on  this vessel was an ongoing concern to conscientious BC Ferry  workers for some time and that  morning Ihe issue finally  exploded. For a number of reasons 10 out of 18 crew felt that  our luck was running out and  had come to the decision that  Ihey were not prepared 10 try  and learn to live with yet another tragedy.  We commenced work early  that day for fire and boat drills,  which upon completion only  proved to reinforce the belief  that the crew size was inadequate to handle the type of  emergencies most likely to  occur. A safety meeting was  denied by the master and consequently these individuals, concerned with the safety of the  travelling public and fellow  crew members, were suspended.  Extra crew called in also  refused to sail the vessel under  the same conditions. They too  were suspended. This was not a  decision reached hastily. These  ; people knew that their friends,  families and neighbours would  be among the passengers on this  ship. Their consciences could  not allow them to compromise  their position.  These unjustly accused 'trouble-makers' are not ashamed of  their actions. They are deeply  sorry for the inconvenience  caused to many when other  members of the BC Ferries went  out in support being equally  frustrated by management's failure to address similar safety  concerns fleet-wide.  This crew is ashamed, however, of being forced back into a  dangerous situation by legislation. Within a few days of the  injunction this same crew found  themselves on a ship without a  functioning fire panel, inadequate safety gear, and broken  down generators. Within a few  days of daring to lake a stand  and bringing upon themselves  the wrath of the province, this  same crew found themselves  floundering in a totally blacked-  out ship on a dark, windy night  off Pender Island looking for a  safe place to drop anchor.  Three people lost their lives  in Nanaimo this pasl year. How  many more have lo die before il  is recognized lhat this corporation is more concerned with  their legal position than the  safely of passengers and crew?  A bothersome inconvenience is  not so hard to bear when one  considers the alternative.  N. TRANTER  Seaman, Long Harbour  Contracting policy  review overdue  The SCRD reservoir to be  built in Selma Park has been  recently awarded to an off-Coast  contractor.  The million- dollar deal had  less than a five per cent spread,  totalling some $48,000.  Given that construction  labour costs generally run  between 30 to 40 per cent of the  total and lhat overhead and profit an additional 20 per cent or  so, we see that some half million of our tax dollars is being  sent offshore.  Although Spani Developments Ltd., was not the lowest  bidder, its tender was acceptable  in light of the fact that 100 per  cent of the resulting spinoffs  would be re-absorbed into the  local economy.  A review of our contracting  policy is well overdue. BC  provincial supply and service  contracts are offered with the  proviso that "all things being  equal, tenders will be awarded  10 BC contractors if the tendered  bid is within 10 per cent of the  lowest."  An effort made to promote  and facilitate participation by  local contractors in the progressive coastal projects would not  go unrewarded.

HEU accepts a  mediated contract settlement, while  Coast fishermen say they wanl local  government backing in salmon treaty  negotiations with the US.  Having survived initial financial  hurdles, the Gibsons Bus finds itself in  scheduling conflicts with BC Transit  Other motorists aren't having an easy  time of it either.  The regional district lashes out at  International Forest Products for a flyer  the company sent to homes on the Coast  which director Jeremy Frith says uses  oversimplification and biased conclusions. Especially objectionable to Frith  is inclusion of comments by local government officials: "It gives a message  that we're all behind Interfor as our  corporate sugar daddy." The company  responds by calling that "selective  indignation."  JUNE  By June, a long, hoi summer is simmering as the labour front heats up.  Teachers hold a "day of concern" for  education underfunding. The Canadian  Paperworkers Union votes 89 per cent  to reject an offer and walks off the job  over wages and statutory holidays.  In the dog days of summer, strange  events are also occurring in Ihe crime  and punishment area. A young thief in  Gibsons is literally caught with his  pants down after a resident observes the  youth fleeing his property sans appropriate attire. The boy is later discovered  - hiding in a van "extremely intoxicated,"  while his pants are recovered in a driveway.  Meanwhile, developer Hayden Killam is sentenced for the assault of an  electrical inspector after the man is  thrown in the ocean and threatened with  the nozzle of a hose during an incident  at Killam's Secret Cove Marina. "I felt  for my life that day," the inspector tells  the courts. But Killam says the man was  not in any danger: "He was spluttering  away... but he never let go of his clipboard."  On the arts scene, Betty Keller,  founder of the Festival of the Written  Arts, receives a Lescarbot cultural  award while plans for a "Centie of  Excellence" on the Coast, including a  Rockwood expansion, are unveiled.  The question of a working harbour is  once more debated in Gibsons, this time  over Smitty's barge operation, while in  Sechelt, the prospect of a watertront  condo development draws protest and  requests for a park. Parks are also on  the agenda at a Roberts Creek hearing  over expansion of the golf course into  areas of Cliff Gilker Park.  Despite the hot weather, the coast's  water supply holds out admirably.  JULY  Forest companies and loggers are hit  hard by the announcement of a 24 per  cent reduction in 1993 to the Coast's  annual allowable cut, approximately  double the provincial average, after the  chief forester declares old levels of  cutting unsustainable. Many worry  about the potential economic impact.  Meanwhile, a hydrological report  blames logging on the upper slopes of  the Caren for flooding and sedimentation which wiped out 12,000 hatchery  salmon at Lions Creek the previous  winter.  The Ministry of Forests local office  also faces problems. Three men and a  woman from Powell River are arrested  and charged after $10,000 to $20,000  worth of computer equipment, cash and  cheques are stolen from the office.  After Ave weeks off the job, tbe mill  strike ends as paperworkers across the  province accept a deal.  Tbe hot labour climate spills into the  professional arena as Sunshine Coast  doctors are among the first to walk out  after talks break down between the BC  Medical Association and the provincial  government over capping of doctors'  fees. More than 600 appointments in the  Gibsons and Sechelt medical clinics are  cancelled for one day as 27 doctors  walk out  Sechelt band members also stage a  protest with a blockade of tbe Sechelt  PetroCan gas station over the company's policy of charging tax to natives on  1992 - personal triumphs  punctuate a year of protests  and recurring labour strife  --���^:---:N^.��a?Si  quick resolution and marks an era of  increased activism on the part of  younger band members.  In transportation, the Ministry of  Highways pulls oul of a verbal deal to  provide-a temporary link-up of the  infamous "road to nowhere" between  one phase of the Gibsons bypass and  the Langdale ferry terminal. Council  urges the ministry to build the connection.  Anne of Green Gables, under the  direction of Lyn Vemon, opens to rave  reviews, while Roberts Creek .vtist Jack  Harman is chosen to sculpt a peacekeeping monument for Ottawa.  AUGUST  The Chaudiere issue makes an innocent appearance on the Coast as spokes-  people for the sinking of the 367-foot  Restigouche Destroyer promise the  project will attract millions of dollars as  a local diving attraction.  But the argument heats up as environmentalists question the safety of the  project.  Animal rights activists react when  Circus Gatti comes to town, protesting  what they call cruel and inhumane treatment of animals in the show. Despite it  all, the affair is well attended and  enjoyed by many Coast residents.  Up to 8,300 litres of lubricating oils  containing trace amounts of PCBs leak  from containers in a construction site at  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper. The area  was not fenced off and officials suspect  vandalism.  Protesters from the Egmont water  board make the headlines Aug. 17 after  forming a blockade on the access road  to eutblocks near Waugh Lake. The  small group, upset over recent plans by  Terminal Forest Products to log without  consultation, prevent loggers from  going to work. Two weeks after the  protest, the cutting resumes. A Ministry  of Forests hydrologist states logging in  the watershed will not affect supplies.  Tragedy hits Gibsons when a 28-  year-old mother of two, Sheilagh  Guillemene, is found dead in her home  Aug. 1. Her husband, Jean-Marc  Guillemene, is arrested and charged  with first degree murder.  Gibsons also mourns the loss of the  Gibsons Bus. The bus makes its last ran  Aug. 24, succumbing to increased competition from BC Transit  Community projects are celebrated  as the 10th Annual Festival of the Written Arts begins with literary stars  including Peter Gzowski and Pierre  Berton.  The Save the Strait Marathon goes  ahead with significantly increased participation and a monetary goal of  $50,000 in pledges.  The Gibsons Library and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum reduce their  funding and increased demand.  A wounded bear becomes cause for  concern near Gibsons after a resident  sees it foraging near a live trap, panics  and shoots the animal in the shoulder.  Conservation officer Doug Pierce says  "it was all very stupid and unnecessary."  SEPTEMBER  The Chaudiere is bound for Sechelt  after the Artificial Reef Society is successful in raising S40.000 locally to get  the vessel out of the Vancouver docks  for shipping to donated moorage in  Porpoise Bay. A public meeting hosted  by the reef society soon becomes a  battle of research papers. Most appear  convinced of the Chaudiere's merits,  however. That changes somewhat later  in the month when the Sechelt Indian  Band announces its opposition to the  project for environmental, political and  philosophical reasons.  In politics, Gordon Wilson officially  resigns from the SCRD after a year as  absentee director for Pender Harbour,  while Gibsons announces it's not happy  about regional planning changes. It is  pleased, though, at dropping of court  charges by developer Hayden Killam.  In the northern part of the peninsula,  a growing population of bears at the  Pender landfill site is cause for concern,  as are power boaters on Ruby Lake,  which raise the ire of local residents.  Tetrahedron LRUP members are also  fired up - this time about erosion caused  by road building near Gilbert Lake -  while two wildlife experts disagree on  the interpretation of Marbled Murrelet  studies in the area.  In the middle of the month, Coast  fishermen join a protest over native  food fisheries on the Fraser River. Closer to home, the Sechelt Indian Band and  Capilano College pioneer a training  course for native comanagement of  fisheries.  In Gibsons, a revised plan for the  Gibsons pool is accepted by council,  while a Gibsons institution - Ken's  Lucky Dollar grocery - succumbs to  competition and closes shop. Meanwhile, the face of the town begins to  change in other ways as set construction  for the Stephen King movie Needful  Things gets underway.  In Sechelt St. Mary's Hospital is  proclaimed one of the best in Canada by  Chatelaine magazine, which points to  low-risk obstetrics, psychiatric day care  the fastest way between Egmont and  Sechelt is through Vancouver.  OCTOBER  The Constitutional debate raises  strong emotions. At a debate with  off Gospel Rock.  Garden Bay celebrates its 100th  birthday Nov. 23.  The school board negotiates with  teachers over professional development  days. Elsewhere in the province, teachers make noise about striking in an  attempt lo speed up contract talks.  A strike hits the Coast as ferry workers shut down operations Nov. 17. The  illegal strike leaves a bitter aftertaste  with residents, one calling it "an act of  terrorism."  The Stephen King film Needful  Things stirs up controversy with local  churches as the devil's influence over  the town is explored.  MP Ray Skelly butts heads with the  doctors in a televised debate over his  idea for a community-based medical  society. Doctors say the change isn't  necessary and assure residents they will  not opt out of medicare.  Jane Reid wins the seal for Area A  on the regional district.  After several meetings with the band  and environmenlal groups, BC Lands  appproves the Chaudiere sinking Nov.  16.  Meanwhile, Sechell youth seek a  community voice as leens tell council  there is nothing for young people to do  and ask lhal a recreation centre be built.  DECEMBER  Months of debate ends as the  Chaudiere lists on its side and sinks  beneath the waters of Sechelt Inlet. The  Sechelt Indian Band loses an eleventh  hour injunction bid in BC Supreme  Court to prevent the sinking. Band  members hint that may signal the end of  their "good neighbour policy," while  reef society members watch the sinking  with excitement, describing the ship as  and geriatric care as its shining successes.  For the first time, the dreaded C-  word makes an appearance locally, as  Gordon Wilson and Ray Skelly express  differences over the Constitutional  Accord.  Canada Post, meanwhile, does its  best to wreck any good feeling by shuf-  "Yes" proponent MP Ray Skelly, an  audience member questions the Quebec  guarantee: "The power there is not  presented in any kind of democracy that  I know about."  Joe Clark makes a brief appearance  to sooth nerves and promote the "Yes"  ideology. "It's not a French plot" he  says. But it isn't enough as 72 per cent  of Coastal voters and 68 per cent of  those across the country relay the message "no deal" to the federal government.  Locally, four hopefuls vie for the  Pender Harbour seat on the SCRD, with  one candidate suggesting the construction of a prison in the area as a means of  economic development.  BC Hydro announces a pilot project  to test alternatives to pesticide spray  techniques on hydro rights-of-way.  Environmentalists say the move is not  enough and call for a complete end to  pesticide use.  The Sechelt Indian Band continues  to oppose the Chaudiere project. Several members contemplate a blockade  should the sinking go ahead.  The SCRD vows to take Interfor and  the Ministry of Forests to court after  cutting begins on a lS-hectare block in  the Chapman watershed. Says director  Jeremy Frith, "Everybody keeps saying  'uh-huh' but the trees keep coming  down." After cutting on the block is  long finished, the issue is temporarily  settled out of court.  Concern over "loitering youth" in  Sechelt becomes an issue as residents  claim they are being intimidated by  large groups of teens congregating on  the streets. Chatelech teens react calling the accusations unfair.  Conflict resolution programs are  implemented in schools as a survey  indicates a degree of violence occurring  at all age levels. Four incidents involving guns or knives are outlined.  Gibsons RCMP receive an anonymous tip Oct. 29 and arrest in a Gibsons  pizza shop an Edmonton man wanted  on a Canada-wide warrant for the murder of his common-law wife.  NOVEMBER  One month after placing second in  the World Mountain Bike competition,  local cyclist Cymbol Wells is hit by a  car while riding on Highway 101. He  undergoes surgery at Lions Gate Hospital to repair damage to a crushed leg.  Tyler Craig Hergott, 26, of Sechelt  goes missing. Police later stumble upon  $50,000 worth of cocaine in his car and  residence. One week later Hergott's  body is found in the Strait of Georgia  the "Mount Everest of diving."  Later in the month the SCRD  expresses concern about ocean dumping procedures, and requests that Environment Canada seek local government  input before dump permits are issued.  The movie production company for  Needful Things leaves town with a  bang, as technicians blow up the set of  an antique corner store near School  Road. But in the aftermath of the  movie, not all businesses say they're  happy about their dealings with the  company.  An education report reveals a five  per cent drop-out rate among Coast  high school students. Teachers and the  school district settle their problems over  professional development days. A youth  council is advocated for Sechelt by  Mayor Nancy MacLarty.  Rockwood is in danger of losing its  expansion project unless it can come up  with $440,000 needed to buy the  adjoining parcel of land and complete  the deal. A joint proposal with a developer saves the day later in the month.  The Ministry of Forests plans to use  fertilizers on a much smaller area than  the 659 hectares first anticipated after  concerns expressed by downstream  water users and health officials.  Meanwhile, Atlantic salmon escaping into the wild from fish farms spark  fears of competition with their Pacific  relatives. About 80 Coast fishermen  turn out to a Sechelt meeting to discuss  changes taking place in fisheries management, especially those involving  commercial native food fisheries.  Seismologists say the Coast is overdue for earthquakes and tremors, warning that we've entered the "serious risk  zone" for the "Big One."  In its provisional budget, the regional district hints that taxes may be rising  - exactly how much is unknown until  housing assessments come in, but an  extra $1 million in revenue is needed.  Sechelt council announces the  regional district may have to help pay  for the ice arena.  The town's food bank is vandalised  for the third time in the year, as food is  strewn across floor and waste. While in  Gibsons, long-time police chief Ed Hill  is promoted to Staff Sargeant and sent  to Hope.  In Sechelt, employees of the Raven's  Cry Theatre and Tyee Air get an unwelcome Christmas present. Lay-off  notices are sent out with pay cheques  and the theatre shuts its doors Dec. 31  after a history of poor attendance and  financial trouble. community  (iibsons  Elementary  student Aileen  Bryant, 8,  with her  gingerbread  house, one of  many built on  the last day of  school before  the holidays.

Artist Jack Harman  sculpted a 10 fool bronze soldier  for the Peacekeeping Monument, scheduled for unveiling in  Ottawa this fall.  August - Creek residents  were surveyed by Tony Wong,  an SFU student asking questions  about current forestry practices  , in.lhis area. The lack of a proper business permit for Ihe Inner  Ear Coffee House brought up  quite a controversy as residents  appear to be against a temporary  permit amendment of the OSP.  September - Thurber Engineering Ltd. presented its  geotechnical assessment of  Roberts Creek at Ihe RCCA  meeiing; as well Centra Gas is  reported to be doing some ditching on a stretch of the bicycle  path; and BC Hydro reps presented reasons for a much-needed and overdue limbing program  for Ihe Creek.

December ��� Extensive land-  clearing along with large  smokey and smelly air-polluting  fires continue to plague the  Creek. SCRD director Jim Gurney submitted regulations to  control this problem to the board  of regional directors recently.  December 19 and 27 saw large  dumps of snow bringing a white  wonderland to the area and lots  of outdoor fun for students still  out of school for the Christmas  break.  george In gibsons  by George Cooper  Gibsons Legion Branch 109  elected an almost complete  change of executive officers for  1993 al its meeting lasl month.

Docudrama, a word now out  of theatrical slang, is defined as  a 'fictionalized dramatization  for TV of an actual event or  about a real person' and has  become a very useful buzz  word for CBC-TV to cover up  its shading of truth as depicted,  for instance, in parts of its 'valour and the horror' film.  This film is soon to be  shown again in February, no  doubt expecting an audience  naive enough not to distinguish  fact from fiction.

Adding a garage to the  property gives an average return of 192% on resale. It's interesting to  note that if a prolessional did the job, Ihe return on resale would only  be 90%.  If you decided to finish the basement, and assuming thai you did a  competent job, the aveiage return on resale would be 239%. If a  professional did it - average return ol 86%.  Kitchens return 185% to the DYIers, but when considering fireplaces  and kitchens, you are getting into the bigtime when it comes to  expertise.

Coast News, January 4, 1993  community  sechelt scenario  SEPTIC  SYSTEM  by Deanna Lueder, 885-7365  The year 1993 stretches before us filled  with promise and paved with New Year's  resolutions.  If I hold to my own resolutions I shall be  a pencil-thin and smoke-free saint by the  middle of 1993. Good luck with your resolutions.  It was a beautiful holiday season with the  snow heavy on the cedars yet mild enough to  enjoy long walks.

There was, however, plenty  of room at Chatelech where all  enjoyed a fantastic show in  which every child in llie school  and kindergarten had a part anil  the chance to perform on stage.  Ii was a frightening experience  for some and a glorious moment  for others.  Each child played his/her pari  wiih enthusiasm and all learned  lines and music well, thanks  mainly lo Ihe dedicated teachers  and helpers who had worked  by Lynn Mees  I hope this column finds you happy and healthy  in the New Year, 1993 and that this column finds  you through all this wondrous snow.  Isn't it beautiful? I guess the only part I don'l  like is that usually between Christmas and the New  Year, it's a fun time lo visit friends and people you  don't see very often.  Meanwhile back at the cabin in the woods covered with snow we lell stories, draw pictures and  eat strange concoctions.  When the cupboards get bare, you have to get  creative.  Christmas part a success  The annual Christmas parly was a delicious success and the food was really quite exceptional. We  got off lo a lale start awaiting the arrival of fellow  friends. Santa came bringing sacks of packages for  the children.  He really knows what his friends in Egmont  like.  Thank you  A big thank you to the Pender Harbour liquor  store for the panda bears.

"I will work ceaselessly for  planetary peace and care for the  environment."  New Year's resolutions are  fine for some people. But Mary  Pinnigcr, a registered clinical  counsellor who operates a private practice in Sechell, says  they're not really her thing.  "I actually don't believe in  New Year's resolulions," says  Pinniger, "...which doesn't  Kids & Tobacco  It's a crime.

The problem with mosi such  resolutions, she says, is lhal they  involve trying lo reach an ideal  as defined by the outside world,  and don't have much to do with  getting to know who we really  are and what we really want to  be doing.  "We end up hating ourselves  for falling short of who we think  we are supposed to be," Pinniger says.  First, a bit of background:  In the beginning, says Pinniger, we start out with an  "authentic self." Bul in Ihe process of growing up and making  a living, we often get separated  from thai: "We have to control  or learn lo repress parts of ourselves," she says. "We develop  an ideal of whal we need to be,  to be loved and approved of,"  Many of those ideals are  attached lo different roles we  play in our lives: the good  molher, Ihe productive employee.  "A lol of us are slrivers,"  says Pinniger. "...There's lots of  us who don't really know who  we are inside."  Part of the reason we like lo  remember when  Mary Pinniger  have structures and limits and  clearly defined goals - like those  expressed in New Year's resolutions - is "it makes life predictable...it's safe then," says  Pinniger.  It's not lhat the goals themselves are right or wrong, she  stresses. But il's important lo  have a sense of who you are and  whal you're worth outside of  them.  Most resolulions deal wilh an  end result or a change in  behaviour. Pinniger says she  prefers to emphasize Ihe process  of change instead.  For her own New Year's ritual, Pinniger says she chooses a  word to guide her thoughts during the year. One example was  "compassion."  "I believe there's some  power in giving your subconscious a message," she says,  although "it's not like I go to  bed and think about my word.  "It isn't like I can fail. II isn't  a standard I'm setting for  myself. It's a process."  Despite her thoughts on New  Year's resolutions, Pinniger  believes it's still important to  recognize lhe changing year  with some kind of personal ritual, which makes intangible  change more physical. "For me  il's an honouring of my pasl  year," she says, which allows  her lo reflect and set the tone for  the year ahead. Il's also usually  something to be celebrated with  friends, she says: "Part of tilual  is sharing with a communily."  Recognizing transitions  makes a person an active part of  the change, she says: "Il's so  easy just lo be a passive participant in life."  5 YEARS AGO  ll was another balmy day Jan.  1, 1988 as swimmers frolicked  in the waters of Davis Bay during Ihe fourth annual Polar Bear  Swim. Fifty hardy souls defied  hypothermia, as an estimated  500 spectators came out to witness the event. Highland piper  John Webb, in full regalia,  escorted the swimmers to the  water's edge with first prize  going to Colin Dionne.  The 10:30 am ferry sailing  from Langdale to Horseshoe  Bay and the return sailing at  11:30 am have been discontinued as of Dec. 31,1987.  10YEARS AGO  The Village of Gibsons  assumed its new status as a  'town' by reaching a population  of over 2600 and will be hosting  an open house to celebrate the  fact.  An arbitration award giving  teachers in School District 46 a  three percent across the board  salary increase was announced  last week.  15 YEARS AGO  The protracted BC Telephone  Company strike became more  than just a male operator on the  telephone lines when a sign  marked 'No Telephone Service  Ship to Shore - BC Telephone  Labour Dispute' was posted on  one of the ships on the Horseshoe Bay/Langdale run.  20 YEARS AGO  Furious rain starting before  Christmas Day, covering 32  hours, amounted to 3.95 inches  which helped already high  stream flows to increase into torrents, creating considerable  damage.  25YE^VRSAGO  Hartley Dent, NDP candidate  for the new federal riding of  Coast/Chilcotin was getting  around the Sunshine Coast last  week to meet people. Apart from  attending several short meetings,  Mr. Dent visited the Canadian  Forest Products pulp mill at Port  Mellon.  30 YEARS AGO  School children in the  Roberts Creek area returned to  their school January 3, which  was rebuilt following Ihe fire  that destroyed the former  $60,000 building and its contents last July 29.  35 YEARS AGO  Electronics is helping the  Japanese fisheries industry  enlarge the scope of its operations and increase its calch.  Boals of only two or three tons  are being modernized with electronic equipment.  Let's all make 1993  a Better Year.

This song is among the traditions still adhered to in a Scottish New Year celebration and is  sung with gusto by Scots all  over Ihe globe.  It is not quite as well known  as the famous Auld Lang Syne,  which has been translated into  many languages, including  English, from its original Doric.  It remains a tribute to the man  who wrote it - Robert Bums.  The first verse is usually rendered al the midnight hour on  Hogmanay, the Scottish term for  Dec. 31, and is sung in New  York, China, Japan, Russia and  all over the world.  The message of remembering  old friends is obvious in the  popular first verse and chorus,  bul Ihere arc other verses seldom heard which are just as  meaningful and with sentiments  which only the Bard himself  could express.  " We two have run about  the braes  and pulled the daisies fine,  but we 've wandered many  a weary mile  since auld lang syne.  We two have paddled  in the burn  from morning sun till dusk,  but seas between us broad  have reared  since auld lang syne.  And there's a hand  my trusty friend,  and give me a hando' thine,  and we 'll take a right good  drink o' malt  for auld lang syne."  It is because of such sentiments that those of us who find  ourselves  in  far-off lands  inevitably go through some  moments of nostalgia for our  "ain folks" at lhat midnight  hour. Despite the fact that the  past 40 of these Hogmanays  have been spent away from  home and that a new way of life  and new friends have replaced  the old, there is generally a tear  as the bells ring in the New  Year.  1 always remember the first  New Year away from home  when I thought I was going to  die of homesickness. We were  living in Toronto, and some  kind people invited us to their  home for a New Year's party.  The living room was full of people we didn't know and no one  was partying. They all sat  around Ihe room with drink in  hand, making small talk and  being very sober. No singing, no  dancing, no drunk uncle being  the life and soul of the party.  We always had at least one of  those.  Our host presented me with a  drink of rum and coke. This was  something I had never tasted  and it was good. Since there was  nothing else to do I had another,  then another, then began to lose  count after about the fourth. I  did last quite a long time, however, until the time came when a  visit to the washroom had to be  made. The moment of truth had  arrived. I can only remember  sinking slowly lo the floor in a  heap, my then brand new husband wrapping my brand new  Christmas fur coat around me,  picking me up and carrying me  through lhat room of people, all  of whom I was sure were muttering "she's drunk." And 1 was  too helpless to deny it.  In one night I was cured of a  liking for rum and coke and to  this day, the very smell of rum  is unbearable.  Oh well, we are older and  wiser now and know when to  slopl  May you all be happy in this  New Year of 1993 and be  healthy and prosper. May those  who are sick get well and may  those who are grieving, find  comfort.  Happy New Year.  Child tax benefit program launched  A Grantham's Landing resident takes shovel in hand to clear a path through the Coast's second  major snowfall this winter. About 7 centimetres fell overnight last Monday.  Joel Johnstone photo  The federal government has combined family  allowances, the child tax credit and the tax credit  for dependent children into a single monthly payment under the new Child Tax Benefit program.  Over the past 50 years, Canada and Canadians  have gone through many changes, but what has not  changed is the wish of every parent to raise children in the best conditions possible.  The government says it spends $4.5 billion a  year on programs for children: with the new Child  Tax Benefit, it will spend an additional $2.1 billion  on federal child benefits over the next five years.  The new benefit will come in tax-free, monthly  s>a  payments, usually to the child's mother. The size  of the benefit will be based on family income and  the number and age of the children in the family.  The government is redirecting child benefits to  low and modest income families. Under the new  program, most families with incomes below  $50,000 will receive increased annual benefits. All  families with an annual income up to $67,000 will  receive some level of benefit. For families with  three or more children, payments will be made at  income levels above $67,000.  A toll free number has been set up for anyone  with questions: 1-800-387-1193.

They outline the need for an effective,  working partnership between government and communities. Aboriginal panel members conducted a parallel consultative process, and  demanded a return to their communities of the responsibility for  protecting and nurturing their children.  The Panel's 264 recommendations will provide the foundation for  new legislation to ensure communities have the services and resources  needed to help keep families together.  To those British Columbians who participated in the Community  Panel review, thank you for your valuable input. With your continued  interest and involvement, we can create a secure and healthy future  for B.C. children and young people.  The reports of the panel ��� Making Changes: A Place to Start and  Liberating our Children ��� Liberating our Nations ���- are now available.

Minister of Social Services  V8W3A2 Province of British Columbia  feature  Turning crisis into opportunity*  astrological advice for 1993  by Darah Hansen  May you live in interesting times.  These aren't the words you want to hear when  on the brink of a new year, in fact, they're Ihe  words of an ancient Chinese curse which is now  upon us, according lo local astrologist Jill Kirby.  "Globally it is a time of huge change," says  Kirby, studying computer-generated charts  stacked neatly on her dining room table.  lhe change is primarily due to  the placement of two of the outer  planets - Uranus and Neptune,  Kirby says.  On the 1993 astrological  charts pertaining lo various countries and individuals, the Iwo  planets come together under the  same sign: Capricorn, an earth  sign. And that doesn't bode well  for a stable future, it seems.  Uranus, among other things,  means revolution or sudden,  unexpected change. Neptune,  however, signifies spirituality,  idculism, illusion. Together, the  planets are taking the world into  a new cycle, says Kirby, a kind of  spiritual awakening.coming up  from the grassroots population  (another of Uranus' attributes).  "That's what astrology means  Il's the study of cycles,  Jill Kirby  says Kirby,  and when one planet  comes to the end of one, it moves on to another."  Kirby notes Ihe last time Ihe planets were in this  position was the year 1821 - during the full-swing  of the industrial revolution. "It's going to be an  uncomfortable ride over the next year," she says.  Meanwhile, Pluto is still moving through Scorpio, where it has been since 1984 and will remain  until 1996. Pluto is the planet that rules Scorpio,  Kirby explains. Both relate to sex, death and  regeneration. She said controversial issues such as  AIDS and abortion will continue to grow in intensity.  Pluto is also responsible for unearthing buried  things, which is why so many victims are coming  forward with stories of sexual abuse and neglect,  she says.  In charts pertaining to Canada, Kirby says government will be the big issue facing the nation in  the New Year: with Neptune and Uranus in the  10th house, representing government, there is  going to be a demand for change. That's compounded with the planet Mars, (energy, drive,  anger and fighting) moving into the fourth house  (people, the homeland). "There's going to be some  opposition by the people," Kirby says, adding that  the country will also see more unrest around  Native land claim issues.  And, no surprise here, there will likely be pressure lo change the present system of taxation, says  Kirby, noting thai Pluto (which can also indicate  taxes) is in Ihe eighth house (shared resources).  With Mars in the fourth house, Kirby says there  will be a growing attitude  among Canadians to put their  own protection first, keeping the  military closer to home.  She sees the closer-to-home  shift as a trend in the United  States, too. With Mars moving  into the second house (economics), Americans may feel  they can no longer afford to be  the global policeman.  As for Mulroney, he's got  some lough times ahead with Ihe  changes expected at Ihe governmenl level. As a Pisces, Ihe  prime minister is a very sensitive, emotional person, she says,  bul he can also be a little slippery - wilh a tendency lo addictive things. Horn with Taurus  rising gives him a solid appearance! while the sign of two fishes swimming in  opposite directions could mean he's actually  deceiving bolh himself and Ihe people, says Kirby.  Meanwhile, BC's own Premier Harcourt should  be excused for a while, says Kirlj His actions arc  not his own. As a Capricorn, he's gol Iwo very  heavy planets - Uranus and Neptune - sitting right  on top of him, clouding his judgments, making  him invisible. "He's in for a bit of a rough year but  we won't see him that much."  These are not absolute predictions, Kirby is  quick to add. In her 19 years of reading the stars,  she says she's been careful lo avoid making events  seem more absolute than they are.  "The (statements) are far more valuable in consultative form. I believe we create our own reality  through who we arc and what we do ... Globally  we have choices. We have lo find new ways of  dealing with issues and that is only going to happen when we come together as a planet."  Kirby believes Ihe world is indeed heading for a  crisis situation in the next year.  Bul, referring again to an ancient Chinese character, she says the symbol for crisis means opportunity.
