Array Victoria  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C.  Victoria   denies   using   political   pressure  by John Burnside  Several times denying any pressure or persuasion from the  provincial government, Deputy-Minister of Municipal Affairs  Chris Woodward addressed a dinner meeting of the Sunshine  Coast's elected representatives and representatives of the local  press at the Jolly Roger on Thursday, July 30, on the subject of  restructuring of this regional district.  "The time has come for reflection and a look ahead," Woodward told an attentive gathering. Early in his address the Deputy  Minister made reference to two previous visits to the Sunshine  Coast. He referred to himself as returning to the 'scene of the  crime' in connection with a series of meetings held in 1966-67 to  incorporate the Sunshine Coast Regional District and also referred to a meeting similar to the one he was addressing held in  Roberts Creek 6 or 7 years ago at which time a 'district  municipality' was also discussed.  "The Sunshine Coast is no longer a backwater," said Woodward. "It is a vibrant growing community under development  pressure, the most desirable on the Lower Mainland. As elected  representatives with tenure you will shape the kind of government that the Sunshine Coast will have."  Woodward said that in becoming a major water, sewer service, and planning supplier the Sunshine Coast Regional District  was providing the kinds of services which elsewhere were being  provided by a district municipality, and has, in effect, been  operating in many instances like a district municipality.  According to the Deputy-Minister of Municipal Affairs there  were four options available to the Sunshine Coast. The first wis  to do nothing; the second to see a district municipality involving  the whole of the regional district; the third was a district  municipality on a smaller scale from the Jolly Roger to Port  Mellon involving only the inhabited coastal strip; and the fourth  involved two or three district municipalities developing around  'the nodal areas' of Sechelt and Gibsons and 'in the future',  Pender Harbour.  Woodward dismissed the first two options, describing doing  nothing as 'inappropriate' and incorporating the entire regional  district municipality as non-feasible. "Tom Waterlands in the  Forestry Department would throw a fit if the uninhabited  hinterland became part of a district municipality," he said.  Woodward told the gathered representatives that the third option of a smaller scale district would see the need of a ward  system initially 'to reflect the different needs and interests'. He  said that initially a council of nine or eleven members would be  regionally alloted for at least four to six years, or it could continue. In such a set-up there would be differential tax structures  depending on the level of services provided, sewers, for instance,  being paid for on a user-pays basis.  Incorporation into one or two regional municipalities, said  Woodward, would see the preservation of existing rural, suburban, and urban lifestyles. Existing neighbourhood plans would  be respected and, in the event of more than one district  municipality, there would be tax sharing agreements between  different municipalities. A definite carrot offered by the  Deputy-Minister in the event of restructuring was the $1 million  in tax revenues that annually go from the pulp mill at Port  Mellon to the provincial government.  In the event of restructuring, Woodward suggested that committees be formed to undertake studies 'with the assistance of a  senior person from the ministry'. The committees would study  council and tax structure to determine fairness; would prepare  budget studies to determine costs now to be borne by the local  government for such services as policing, welfare, and road  maintenance. At the conclusion of these studies the new responsibilities would be assumed by local government.  Describing the restructuring process as 'good business for the  province' Woodward said that, if the Sunshine Coast was willing  to make changes for the relief of the province, financial  assistance would initially be offered.  "There is a need to grant financial aid," said Woodward,  "between the taking of responsibility for the road maintenance,  the welfare costs and the costs of policing, and the restructured  political entity 'getting into business fully'.  The grants would take the form of refund of taxes of service  equivalents. For the transitional period of five years grants for  policing costs would be available, grants or service equivalents  for road maintenance, and possible assistance with welfare  costs. There would also be refunds from general purpose taxation in the amount of $150 per person in non-municipal areas  and $50 per person in the municipal areas or equivalent services.

Vans Pa-nall Ptwlo  It should be fun riding the Arts Festival Bus during the next two  weeks, with these entertaining fellows around. The special bus  will carry passengers, especially little people and seniors, from  Langdale, Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Madeira Park, back and  forth to Sechelt every day. Clowning around is all part of the Second Annual Arts Festival fun, which has the theme this year  "The Magic of Masks" so be ready for anything, folks. You  never know who you may find sitting beside you.  Local RCMP are seeking assistance from the public In their  extensive March for a 28-year old Richmond woman who has  been reported missing since Saturday, July 25.  Patricia Huber, described as being five feet tall, weighing 100  pounds, blonde hair, was last seen wearing a blue Jean jacket  and denim slacks and carrying a brown leather Jacket.  Patricia Huber and her husband came to the Coast on a camping trip driving a brown Honda with camping gear In the back of  the car.  She was last seen In the vicinity of Egmont-Earls Cove walking on the Egmont Road, around S pm. on July 25, RCMP told  the Coast News, but it is not known In what direction.  Police urge that anyone seeing the described missing person in  the company of a person or persons on the Sunshine Coast  should immediately contact them at 815-2266.  So far, the RCMP said, their extensive search has uncovered  nothing. They have not ruled out foul play.  Political restructuring  Luke-warm reception for changes  by John Burnside  Reactions from local politicians could best be described as  luke-warm to the presentation of Deputy Minister of Municipal  Affairs, Chris Woodward on the subject of the re-drawing of  political lines on the Sunshine Coast made at the meeting held  July 30, at the Jolly Roger.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons presented a prepared  position on behalf of her municipality which seemed to favour  the gradual growth already taking place. The full text of the Gibsons position appears in this paper.  Speaking on behalf of the Sechelt Council, regional representative Alderman Brian Stelck said: "Sechelt recognizes the need  for restructuring and is willing to let the provincial government  draw the lines."  When Stelck, having outlined difficulties Sechelt had in maintaining its parks under the constant use of non-village members,  fMtiously asked what the provincial government's reaction  would te to a request by Sechelt for a dissolution of incorporation, nfrwas told by the Deputy Minister that "You wouldn't get  ���^MVktoii-ri^dMUtks don't dissotyt UHto  -" ** "      |Hp'isfi��iiipr*"f**,   ... t  In a strong statement, Regional Board Chairman David  Hunter pointed out that regional areas A, B, C, D, E and F  represented 75% of the population of the Sunshine Coast and  the majority of the tax base,  "We come in for a lot of abuse from the villages and  developers," said Hunter, "but we have provided a water  system which could service 250,000 people. Our sewerage requirements can be taken care of for the next 25 years and we  would have a transportation system by January 1st."  The regional board chairman pointed out that street lighting  was provided from one end of the regional district to the other,  that parks and recreation was a regional responsibility, and that  the regional district provided planning for the whole area as well  as building inspections for the regional areas and the Village of  Sechelt.  "We also provide garbage disposals for the whole regional  area and garbage pick-up from Hallmoon Bay to Langdale,"  said Hunter. "On behalf of the regional district I want to say  that we don't intend to go out of business. Perhaps if there is to  be a district municipality it should be accorded to the regional  district."  Directors for area A, B, D, E, Harrison, Connor, Almond  and Ourney respectively, all concurred with the regional board  chairman who is also regional director for Area F. The lone  regional dissident was local realtor Jon McRae who was making  his first appearance as an alternate for the ailing Charles Lee of  AreaC.  "Area C is tied to Sechelt," said McRae. "They want nothing  to do with Gibsons. They are willing to pay horrendous prices at  Shop-Easy because Sechelt is their community. Area C is in  favour of two district municipalities. They don't care about Gibsons or Pender Harbour."  Director Harry Almond of Area D (Roberts Creek) also made  a statement on beM* qf Ms wpifljS^j. "i^'s (��.(town to  vraUttcks," ssld AtootuJ-I^opM-aiUy trie feeling is that the  regional district is getting away with something. We are being  pushed into something to take a burden off the provincial  government," said Almond. "The care of roads, policing and  welfare costs will increase our taxes. If we have to help out the  villages who are strapped for taxes the people in the areas may  be willing to pay more but the regional areas have the right to enjoy the individuality they have now. The people of Roberts  Creek do not relish the idea of being swallowed up one way or  another."  Director Joe Harrison of Area A received an assurance that  regional water for Pender Harbour would not be blocked by the  Department of Municipal Affairs and Director Almond received  an assurance that neighbourhood plans would be respected.  Must not be forced  Gibsons position on restructuring  The Village of Gibsons Landing was incorporated 52 years  ago and has undergone several changes since. We now have a  water system, a sewer system, a fire department, a swimming  pool, parks, library, museum, health unit offices, and ambulance facility. Our boundaries have had several small extensions and we have changed our name by dropping the  "Landing".  Since the rejection, by the residents to the north of Gibsons,  of a proposal to take Port Mellon into the Municipality, Gibsons  has not actively pursued boundary extension, but has accepted  any property whose owners petitioned to be included in the  Village. There are several such applications now awaiting  Ministry approval,  Gibsons is an incorporated Municipality, but it is also the core  for a larger community. This community shares the amenities  and facilities within the Municipality and constitutes the largest  population centre on the Sunshine Coast. With the proximity to  the Lower Mainland and its critical housing shortage *nd to the  area's largest employment source, there can be no doubt that it  will continue to grow as the main residential, commercial and industrial area.  In recent months we have established a West Howe Sound  Recreational Advisory Commission. This was regarded by some  of the participants as a major step in the evolution of the Village  of Gibsons Landing into the District of West Howe Sound. At a  meeting held to establish the Commission, one participant said  "We are all one community. The boundaries of the Village are  only lines on a map, they don't separate the people".  Nanaimo is being held up as the example for us to follow, but  we do not have the same situation here. Nanaimo was a core city  and had several satellite communities, all dependent to a major  extent on that core. On the Sunshine Coast we have three core  communities, each with its satellite fringe areas, all in a coastal,  ribbon development more than fifty miles long. Such a linear  development is not conducive to efficiency of service. When  planning any community, development is guided from the core  outward. Here we have three separate cores, each of them the  centre of a community of people who identify with that core.  The existence of the two established Municipalities renders the  simple expansion of their boundaries as the best form of governmental restructure. The basic political structure, staff and local  knowledge already exist and can readily be supplemented to effect the continuity of the two traditional communities in their  new roles.  The five members of the Gibsons Council are unanimous in  their recognition of the need for local homogeneous  "grassroots" form of government, easily accessible to the people of the community it serves. We believe that each of the three  communities on the Sunshine Coast should be formalized by incorporation, now or in the future. We also firmly believe that  the people of our communities should make the decision,  whether it be for one, two or three municipalities. Such a decision must not be imposed upon them.  Lorraine Goddard  Mayor  Building boom  in Gibsons  Alderman Larry Labonte, Gibsons Planning and Building  Chairman, presented council with building development costs  and figures of Gibsons until June 30, 1981, indicating an unprecedented building boom in the village.  There has been almost $7 million in building projects approved by Gibsons building inspector Ralph Jones, compared to SI  and 1/2 million approved at the end of June, 1980. The June,  1981, total is $6,996,880.  ON THE INSIDE...

Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Production Department:  Nancy Conway  Neville Conway  Sham R Sohn  Sherra Picketts  Bradley J Benson  Circulation  Joan H Foster  Stephen Carroll  Wait a minute  For this observer at least there was a  distinct feeling of anti-climax at the  meeting held in the Jolly Roger last week  with Deputy-Minister of Municipal Affairs Chris Woodward. Certainly, said the  man from Victoria, there is no thought of  the provincial government pressuring the  Sunshine Coast into anything it is not  ready for.  Some of those who had been present at  ihe meeting in Victoria where the same  gentleman seemed to be doing just that,  using the withdrawal of provincial grants  as a lever, were quite taken aback at the  mellowing of Woodward's attitude.  Somehow, it would appear, the Deputy  Minister had obtained a perception of the  Sunshine Coast as strife-torn and ripe for  manipulation; that has apparently been  altered between the meeting in Victoria  early last month and last week's meeting.  The word 'manipulation' is used advisedly lor it seems quite certain that the  prime beneficiary of the restructuring  process at this time would be the provincial government. The grants and various  carrots offered up by the man from the  ministry cannot conceal the fact that there  would be a shifting of some onerous  responsibilities indeed from the provincial  government to the local taxpayers under  any of the restructuring options.  As the Sunshine Coast continues to  grow, as it must, these responsibilities  will be ours soon enough. Already there is  evidence that without the prodding of  bureaucrats from Victoria an organic  change is taking place here amongst our  local communities. The co-operation of  Areas B and C with the Village of Sechelt  and Areas E and F with the Village of  Gibsons in matters recreational provides  evidence enough that change is taking  place in its own time and at a natural rate.  It seems from this vantage point as  though it would be a tragic folly for our  local politicians, out of a sense of rivalry  with each other, to vie for status in a  restructured political map which would  only serve to relieve the provincial government of some tax burdens it will lose eventually in any case. It rather seems that no  residents of the Sunshine Coast will be  particularly well-served by the hastening  of the natural process of growth and  change already well underway.  We agree, in short, with the Mayor of  Gibsons when she points to the growth of  co-operation between adjacent regions  and the villages as evidence of a natural  course of change; we agree with Director  Harry Almond that the status quo is not  such a bad place to be until the way ahead  is clearer. We also agree with Director  Peggy Connor that the entire Sunshine  Coast is a natural geographic entity but  feel that the redrawing of imaginary lines  to hasten Victoria's responsibilities being  borne by the people of the Sunshine Coast  does not seem a necessary means of  recognizing that geographic oneness.  The simple fact of the matter is that  municipalities must assume the costly  responsibilities of policing, welfare, and  road maintenance when they reach 5,000  population. Neither of our municipalities  has got there yet and it will be time  enough to take the responsibilities when  they do.  Meanwhile, Mr. Woodward, what  about that $1 million creamed off to Victoria from the pulp mill at Port Mellon?  Doesn't it rightfully belong here in any  case? Could it be that a degree of  political maturity is being reached here on  the Sunshine Coast which finds us un-  thrilled at being offered as a special  dispensation of a beneficent government  that which is rightfully ours in any case?  Is there another pulp mill in British Columbia which is not paying taxes to the adjacent municipalities?  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  **gm m  FIVE YEARS AGO  The 1976 Gibsons Sea Festival  once again proved successful  despite the fact that the whole  festival was organized at the last  minute. The annual summer fair, held  Irom Friday night until Sunday evening drew large crowds to the events  staged around the harbour and In  Dougal Park. Saturday's events held  a great deal for children  TEN YEARS AQO  This is an excerpt from an editorial.  "The question now rears its head  with unsavoury connotations. Just  what kind of a Regional Board do we  have? Does poverty of intellect  always manifest itself in dictatorship, arrogance, insolence,  pragmatism, egotism, hypocrisy and  scurrilous behaviour?"  The above quotation comes from  remarks put before a meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Ratepayers Association members  last week.  To assume that poverty of intellect  is confined to the Regional Board is  not reasonable. Members of the  Regional Board are ratepayers too  and have no desire to price  themselves out of hearth and home.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  In acknowledging receipt of a cheque for $250 from the Elphinstone  Junior Red Cross, Mrs. Isla Service,  Director, Red Cross Youth, B.C. division, advised the students that a portion of this money was used to provide an artificial eye for a boy from  Kamloops.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Tuesday night's Gibsons council  meeting spent considerable time  discussing a renewed application by  E.F. Cartwright of Gibsons' Loggers  and Sportsmens Supplies Ltd., for  construction of a marina to cost  about $25,000 In the vicinity of the  government island wharf.  The discussion centred on the Zoning By-law as It concerned the bay  area. Councillor Hodgson was of the  opinion that a snap decision should  not be taken at Tuesday night's  meeting and urged further consideration.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Granny McEwan, who now lives at  Pincher Creek, Alberta, is enjoying  the summer with her usual zest for  living. She attended various sports  days and fairs In the foothills, also  enjoyed a days fishing with a catch of  two.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Gibsons will see Its greatest day,  Ferry Day, when the M.V. Quillayute  makes Its test run Saturday, August  11. The ferry will go Into actual operation the following day. It will not be  on schedule or service on Saturday.  Three bands will be on hand to  help, a cavalcade is expected from  Pender Harbour, and school children  dressed in white will sing the anthem.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Granthams Community Association held their mid-summer whist  drive on Wednesday. The evening  was a huge success, there being 25  tables and about 100 guests present.  Mr. Vaughn Moore, as chairman, with  his racy commentary, kept his audience in fine humour and had each  guest stand up and make their own  introductions.  Last week a happy party taxied to  Gower Point where they were met by  Mr. Metcalf with five prancing steeds.  They all looked very nice in their  riding habits and report having enjoyed the outing but all agree they  should have taken more cushions  along.  Gibson's Landing, late 1920's.

I don't know whether I'm  beginning to suffer from battle  fatigue or whether a long-  awaited mellowing process is  underway, but when the  gentleman on my immediate  right at a recent dinner event  commiserated with me about  not being able to stay in Britain long enough for the royal  wedding I contented myself  with a neutral grunt and  busied myself with my shrimp  salad. '���%  The grunt was ineffectual.  The gentleman persisted.  "Well, with all these riots  and unemployment and  everything I suppose the royal  wedding is just what the old  country needs right now?"  Another grunt would have  done it, I guess, but I was  finished with the shrimp salad  and instead of a careful  neutrality I offered the observation that it might be very  bad indeed for his personal  well-being were he to offer  such an observation in a pub  in the Liverpool Docks area.  Or, indeed in several other  locations within Her Majesty's  realm.  It was enough, I had done it  again. The gentleman was  politely curious about my lack  of enthusiasm, revealed again,  about the royal wedding or  any other aspect of the monarchy and through the main  course of the dinner I found  myself gesticulating with my  fork, with and without  chicken attached, while attempting to refrain from sounding like a wild-eyed  republican with my usual lack  of success.  I spent the day of the royal  nuptials on a hay field in the  interior of British Columbia,  and considered the day well-  spent.  Even while I was in Britain  my lack of enthusiasm for the  'match of the century' led me  into some difficulties and with  my own family at that.  "John, you have to admit  that she's lovely," said my  sister.  "She's no lovelier than the  little girl with the engagement  ring on her finger in the  Mauchline branch of the Bank  of Scotland," I said, and  somehow confirmed my status  as the family eccentric.  Let me tell you about a play  I went to see at the Pitlochry  Festival in the Highlands of  Scotland during my recent  visit. Pitlochry has a charming  little theatre built on the banks  of a good salmon river and  during the season presents  four or five plays in repertory.  We were able to spend only  one night in the place and the  play presented on that evening  was by the token Scot - in this  case William Douglas Home,  brother of the former Prime  Minister Alex Douglas Home.  1 think it flourished under the  title Grouse Moor Manor or  some such.  Briefly the play was an attempted comedy with one of  Douglas Home's quaint, impoverished earls trying to save  his inherited 50,000 acres  without having to go to the  terrible lengths of sacrificing  his grouse moor for building  land. There was a comic  Labour peer, so elevated by  Sir Harold Wilson, who had  married into the family and  who blustered somewhat  vulgarly throughout the piece;  there was a vaguely hippy-like  daughter of the earl who had  married a hulking young man,  apparently retarded, who pretty well was restricted to sulkily  announcing that he was a  card-carrying Communist;  and above all there was the  family hope - a young  graduate of Eton elegantly  complaining to his father  about the fact that he had  given up the Conservative seat  in Parliament before he, the  son, could move comfortably  into it to await his inheritance.  There was a great deal of  unfunny business about the installation of a zoological park  - the earl accidentally shot the  hippo from his windows, the  family dressed up in vintage  togs and made living tableaux  for the tourists, rich  Americans arrived, the son fell  in love with the rich American  daughter, she wouldn't marry  him until he had a job, he got  the prospect of a job when  daddy's man-eating tiger  removed the sitting member of  parliament, and so to a happy  ending.  I suppose that William  Douglas Home, the younger  son of the thirteenth Earl of  Home, saw it as a charming  human comedy which revealed  to us all that the landed  aristocracy of the United  Kingdom had human problems just like us. To this particular exile it came across as  redolent with all of the limp  assumption of privilege and  idleness that has presided over  the decline of those once  energetic islands.  And so back to my lack of  enthusiasm for the wedding of  Prince Charles and Lady  Diana, to whom I wish no ill.  My argument is that if Britain,  or Canada, or anywhere else,  wants to have a constitutional  monarchy as the symbolic  figurehead of the state, well  and good. The format is as  good as any other. It seems to  me to be unfortunately true,  however, that the monarchy  and the obsession  with  the  monarchy in Great Britain is  the root of support of the infamous class system which  flourishes still in an ailing  land.  An inherited constitutional  monarchy is compatible with  democracy and social justice.  The present British monarchy  carries a long train of privileged idleness in its wake,  however. Too many sons of  earls await their inheritance by  taking the comfortable positions in government or near  the top of British industry,  positions they have little  reason to merit except their  bland assumption of superiority.  I found a Great Britain suffering under levels of  unemployment unknown in  the past fifty years, with the  traditional escape valve of  emigration to the colonies  largely cut off. 1 found a  government entrenched and  prepared to endure sacrifices  which were not its own. I  found that the obsession with  the marriage of a young man  and a young woman reminded  me of nothing more than the  'circuses' with which the  Roman emperors attempted to  keep their vulgar masses amused. Now the show is over, the  social ills remain, the riots  continue and I suggest that  Great Britain faces a future in  which hysterical adulation of  the privileged few will avail it  little.  Reprinted from July 1977.  I was ear-witness to an interesting conversation in the  bunkhouse a few nights ago.  The subject of debate was the  economics of logging. Having  little knowledge of the subject  myself, I was fascinated  though in no way able to judge  the accuracy of the statements.  One particular statistic struck  me as at least having the ring  of veracity; that, contrary to  historical custom, the logging  industry no longer paid the  highest wages in B.C.  As I have said, I have no  way of telling whether this is  true or not but I was immediately able to put my  finger on the probable cause  of such an alarming fact. I  know nothing of logging but I  have enough experience in  other lines of work to discern  immediately that the logging  industry has allowed itself to  be bypassed by the 'linguistic  revolution' which has swept  North America in the past two  or three decades. This revolution in the language of work  began with professional people after World War II when  advanced communication  techniques and a general rise  in educational levels put the  mystique of the professional  (doctors, lawyers, teachers  and professional civil servants)  dangerously within the reach  of lay persons. When this,  combined with the arrogant  demands of democracy,  threatened to allow anybody  with a few brains and some  ambition into previously  esoteric occupations, the pro-  / found a dimpled spider, fat and white.  On a white heal-all, holding up a moth  Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth -  Assorted characters of death and blight  Mixed ready to begin the morning right,  Like the ingredients of a witches' broth ���  A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,  And dead  wings carried like a paper kite.  What had that flower to do with being white.  The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?  What brought the kindred spider to that height,  Then steered the white moth thither in the night?  What but design of darkness to appall? ���  If design govern In a thing so small.  Robert Frost  fessionals defended the gates  of exclusitivity against the barbaric rabble by adopting  thousands of new words and  phrases of such unabashed  jargon that the ambitious  pretenders were immediately  put in their rightfully lowly  places.  Since that time every trade  or occupation, anxious to protect its economic position by  limiting its membership, has  followed suit.  Not so with loggers. There  seems to be a naive assumption in the woods that good  loggers are hard to get because  the work is heavy, bone-  wearying and requires such  monumental strength and endurance that not many people  can handle it, and the mere  fact that the work is hard  should keep the ranks trimmed, and therefore the demand  for loggers high. It is true that  the work is hard and that good  workers are hard to find but  the industry has become so  mechanized that a number of  skilled men, supported by a  few bodies, can achieve much  more than in the days of the  axe, cross-cut saw, and  wooden spar-tree. Skilled men  are hard to find but the  'bodies' can come from almosi  anywhere; for instance,  middle-aged school teachers  will do quite nicely.  In order to enhance their occupational credibility, and  thus their ability to command  higher wages, loggers are going to have to adopt the tactics  of modern industry and  government; in short, re-write  their mundane occupational  lexicon in more updated  language.  Modern language allows for  any number of examples of  potential jargon. The way it  stands now, however, the  direct and straightforward  nature of the woodsman does  not allow for its development.  Anyone can come into camp  and in a few days interpret the  most technical of. logge'f  dialogue. '''  The first thing to remember  is that every other word or jo  doesn't count because it is ope  of two or three traditional logger adjectives. The second  thing to keep in mind is that  the logger has an annoying  habit of calling a thing by its  common, garden name'.  Therefore you get something  that sounds like this: bleepin;  axe; bleepin' tree; bleepin!  power saw; bleepin' choker;  bleepin' foremen; bleepin!  truck; bleepin' bunkhouse,  and so on. Put together, a  typical logging communication might sound something  like this: "You'd better get;*  bleepin' axe and a bleepin'  power saw up the bleepiji?  road and get the bleepin' trte  Please turn to Page Three": VMflD'-VA tAEKN   ertdTvowALLY  bRBlW^D  Coast News, August 4,1981  Wf�� LI   WHAT  WITH THE RpfPL vedisikG-.

'��� Having lived on the Sun-  Shine Coast for 25 years, active in many organizations in  .business, and in local affairs I  ' have a feeling for the whole of  ihe Sunshine Coast. It is one  '(jntity.  ' While it is early to make a  positive decision, it is well to  learn with an open mind, one  has to at least have an idea of  ihe direction to go.

Sechelt and Gibsons would  still maintain their name as  would the other areas, but  their area could grow out from  the core, thus allowing the  rural areas to remain rural and  .those wishing to live in a  higher density could do so. It  ���would mean better-equipped  villages to serve the outside  areas.  Now this could also be said  of two or three municipalities  but there the forces are split.  To support one municipality  wholly is to make a stronger  community. Wherever boundaries are drawn a split is inevitable, it creates a drawing  of sides.  I, Peggy Connor, Director  for Area "B" for the Sunshine  Coast Regional District have  heard more people from this  area in favour of one  municipality, except for the  goodly number who wish to  stay as we are now, a Regional  District. Your comments are  welcome.  Area "B" is from the  Western boundary of Sechelt  to Wood Bay up past Secret  Cove including West Sechelt,  Halffao6n"flSy"aSid; Secret  Cove.  While I am very familiar  with all these areas I have an  Advisory Planning Committee  including representation from  all parts of the area. We meet  once a month and discussions  are held to give me the feeling  of a broad section of the  public. Also, I am in contact  with the Area "B" Ratepayers  and other organizations for  Slings & Arrows (Cont'd.)

Even the  -most uninitiated novice can  -follow the message with the  'Simplicity of the nursery  thyme. How much more professional and exclusive, and  tltus more deserving of higher  wages, would logging be with  '8 few basic changes? For example, the axe could become  ���'a manually operated heavy  density vegetation harvesting  tool'; the power saw 'a motor-  assisted, heavy density vegeta  tion harvesting machine'; the  tree, 'a potentially harvest-  able economic unit'; the  bunkhouse, 'a semipermanent rest and recreation  personnel module'; foremen,  'mobile, field supervisory personnel'.  As you can see, the addition  of a few basic terms taken  from the more advanced occupations and industries could  well revolutionize the wages of  B.C. loggers. My fear is,  however, that these men of the  woods will bow to tradition  rather than take up my suggestions, (which, by the way, I  took great care to keep to  myself) and they will carry on  in their old-fashioned way of  calling a thing by its name and  saying what they think right  out loudl Perhaps, after all,  money isn't everything.

The next meeting for discussion on restructuring will be  September 3. The most important decision to me is whether  everyone is going to look at  the total picture for the best  for all as one big family or is it  going to be a power struggle  that benefits no one.  Sincerely,  Peggy Connor,  Director Area B,  Sunshine Coast  Regional District  R.R. No. I, Halfmoon Bay  Almond favours status quo  Editor:  When the announcement  was made recently that the  Regional District should consider Municipal status, Chairman Hunter requested that we  look at all facets and facts  related to such a change  without making personal decisions or statements.  So far I have sat in three  meetings and listened with  amazement to remarks made  by some of the 10 village councillors���who represent Ins  than 4000 voters���to the six  board members who represent  9 or 10 thousand. Most of the  remarks were based on  assumption and fallacy, and  the lack of knowledge of  regional affairs and responsibility I find astounding.  To consider the objections  one hears to Regional District  government. Who makes these  objections? It appears to me  that interference in village affairs by the board has been  minor to say the least.  Representatives from the pre  sent electoral areas in a larger  village would perhaps interfere  more. It seems to me too that  the main objections to  Regional government come  from developers and sub-  dividers who do not like to  bow to regulations and zoning  by-laws which have been implemented for the protection  of the majority. Would not a  larger municipality have the  same regulations and by-laws?  Or would such things as settlement plans cease to edit and  ' public participation and  discussion in planning and  zoning disappear? I would  hope not.  As any elected body, the  Regional Board has made  decisions which have been  controversial and often aroused the ire of many people, but  Please turn to Page Fourteen.

Maury  phones me a couple of times  during this period. Elsa, the  doctor, has already gone back  to England, leaving Maury  with 1500 dollars. He is supposed to pay off his more-  pressing debts and follow her.  I hear no more and assume he  must have done this. But  Maury now reverts totally to  the blackest side of his nature.  Against all logic, he embarks  on a veritable orgy of alcohol  and drugs. It surpasses belief  that anyone could foul-up  such an ideal situation but  Maury manages to do it.  Before long, he has  squandered all the money and  is wiring Elsa for more. This  time, she sends only a plane  ticket and an imploring  telegram. 1 see Maury briefly  and he swears he is going to  leave the following day. He is  badly hooked on heroin again  by this time and talks of  registering as a legal addict in  England. But he misses the  plane and ends up cashing the  ticket.  I am honestly appalled when  Maury phones me about a  week later. "Listen, man, I've  got to talk to someone. Elsa  killed herself. Committed goddamn suicide. I wired her for  another ticket���I swear I was  really going to go this  time���and I got a telegram  back saying she'd overdosed  on sleeping pills. What the hell  did she have to go and do that  for?" He sounded profoundly  shaken up. I don't even know  what to say. Maury has obviously doublecrossed one  woman too many.  Another person faced with  this sort of situation, might be  motivated to try and  straighten out. Not Maury. He  simply goes from bad to  worse. Hopelessly addicted, he  begins pushing heroin to support his heavy habit. Inevitably, he is arrested again.  A trafficking-charge is  dismissed for lack of evidence  but he is convicted on possession and passing so many bad  cheques, they have to be  brought into court on a tray.  Maury is sentenced to a year in  Oakalla. We have no contact  during his imprisonment but I  hear later from a fellow inmate, that he has done pretty  bad time, attempting suicide  on several occasions by  slashing his arms.  He contacts me again, soon  after his release. He has met  another girl (a nurse this time)  is off drugs and working. It  sounds like the beginning of  the same old cycle but hope  springs eternal and jail seems  to have had a sobering effect  on Maury. Before long,  Grace, his girl-friend, arranges  a transfer to the Interior and  they move up to Penticton. I  receive a couple of very optimistic calls from Maury. He  seems, at long last, to be getting his life under control.  1 hear nothing for several  months. Then, one evening, I  get a distraught phone-call  from Grace. As soon as 1 hear  her voice, I know that the inevitable must have happened  again. After a number of clean  months, Maury began making  lone forays into Vancouver,  ostensibly to see about getting  Through  One I  epic voyage  by Bob Hunter  I am probing through a fog  that slows me down to a crawl.

But now another miracle  begins to happen.  Within minutes, I'm herded  on to the Queen of Cowichan,  bump, clang, into the echoing  pale yellow steel canyon. Lo  and behold, a few minutes  more and the ship begins to  vibrate like the giant space  ship in Star Wars, and we're  sliding purposefully away into  a complete and utter void.  Now, I happen to know that  I am crossing a body of water  which is something considerably more than a ditch or  a moat. It can get quite sloppy  out here, as the fishermen say.  Am I worried?  Not at all.  1 am perfectly aware that  prior to the Second World  War there was no such thing  as radar. (It was first used by  the British against the Bismarck and was a factor in the outcome of that particular battle.  But I guess we all knew that.)  It's winter and the middle of  the week at that, so there  aren't many cars. The big rigs  and the buses make up at least  half the cargo, and the rest of  the lower parking deck looks  as lonely as a basketball court  after a game.  Normally, I follow the rest  of the passengers up to the  canteen, the magazine racks,  his poems published. Of  course, the temptation of being close to the source was too  great and he drifted back on  junk. Now he has been busted  once more and this time, he is  accused of giving heroin to an  underage girl. Evidently, the  girl is already an addict but  they charge him with contributing nonetheless. He is  being held in the West Wing of  Oakalla to await trial. In view  of his previous record, things  look none too hopeful. Grace  is extremely worried about  Maury's psychological state.  He has sworn to make a successful job of killing himself if  he should ever have to do time  again. She begs me to write  him and attempt to raise his  spirits. Apparently he considers me his sole remaining  friend. to be continued  the electronic game machines,  the padded chairs.  But curiosity prompts me to  walk around the two other  levels of parking space for a  change.  It is an odd feeling wandering around in a vast empty  chamber, no cars, not a soul in  sight, in the middle of limbo.  It is hard not to feel dwarfed  and therefore insignificant.  But also there is a kind of exultant feeling. In a way, with no  one else in sight, it is as if I had  this fantastic machine to  myself.  My imagination runs wild. I  am lost in the bowels of an interstellar freighter somewhere  beyond the Milky Way. I'm a  kind of Captain Nemo, inspecting my unbeatable craft. Now  I'm travelling in a Brob-  dignagian tea cup through  time as well as space.  At the other side, I calmly  drive ashore, pleased to note  that the great ship has shed its  cocoon of fog, that the stars  have come out, and that the  moon is almost full.  So simple a thing, a ride on  a ferry.  Yet in its own distinct way it  was one of the epic voyages of  all time. We crossed the strait  of Georgia in a fog. It was-a  quiet night. Absolutely  nothing out of the ordinary  happened. Everything was on  schedule. Everybody looked  bored. Ho hum.  Well, I'll tell you. I'm impressed.  What is "normal"  nowadays almost invariably  reveals itself, upon reflection,  to be quite thoroughly spectacular.  My great-grandfather, I'm  sure, would have given his left  arm to go on such a voyage. I  shouldn't take it for granted.  I mean: Whew.  Video workshop  Do you want to learn how  television works?

Ettinghain $  ^   Astrology  The villainous lady kicks the Man of Steel In the ribs but Superman's fans will now how little that will affect their hero. Action  Is from Superman II, playing at the Twilight Theatre all this  week.  At the Twilight  The long-awaited sequel to  Superman is on display  throughout this coming week  at the Twilight Theatre and,  from all reports, the old adage  about a sequel never being as  good as the original gets blown  away like the planet Krypton  in Superman II.  Back again as Superman is  Christopher Reeve and back  again is Margot Kidder as Lois  Lane. The special effects, with  nip and tuck rescues from the  Niagara Falls to the Eiffel  Tower provide the giddy stuff  of daydreams fulfilled.  In Superman II the Man of  Steel is up against the same  three arch villains, played by  Terence Stamp, Jack  O'Halloran and Sarah  Douglas, that Papa Brando  dispatched to the cosmic void  in   the   original   Superman.  With a finely devious performance from Gene Hackman  and the witty direction of  Richard Lester, Superman II  will delight all.  A particular surprise will be  how beautifully the love story  comes through. When Superman reveals his love and true  identity to the sassy Lois Lane  it becomes one of the screen's  magic moments. Supermom  Susannah York, however,  declares her son must give up  his special powers in order to  have his Lois and she sets us  up for a romantic heartbreak  and, incidentally, Superman  III, due in 1983.  Superman II will be shown  at the Twilight Theatre  Wednesday through Tuesday,  August 5-11, with only occasional swearing to detract  from its appeal for the whole  family.

Others begin to find  you unconventional, erratic  and more highly-strung than  usual. Many Scorpios now  undergo a rebellious change in  appearance.

August 7th & 8th        h i  Members & Guests Only Book Look.  by Murrie Redman  Confessions by Barbara Amid, Totem 19(1  Amiel admits that she has the right "packaging" to get  ahead in media. Beneath her attractive exterior lies a sharp  journalist. Her honesty, however, gets her into not a little  trouble. From being chastised by a government department for using the word "hun" to upsetting the women's  liberation movement in failing to find any male  chauvinism at blame in her rise to fame, she has earned the  titles: "unflinchingly honest", "very contemporary  woman", and her favourite, "Fascist Bitch".  In her Confessions, she begins by telling about a riches  to rags childhood. As a young teenager, she opted to live  by herself with no assistance from her parent. Her job was  her sole support. What she learned from her tough street  companions, according to Amiel, only increased her  understanding of their situation. She remained untouched  in the company of street urchin prostitution and poverty.  Besides becoming an expert soda fountain jerk, she was  a brilliant student and was soon into university on a  scholarship and other assistance. Ms. Amiel's experiences  made her a champion for social reform. She lashed out at a  government which did not supply a free post-secondary  education to its better students and found a core of like  thinkers at the University of Toronto. Amiel and friends  supported David Lewis, but her youthful impetuousness  soon saw her joining the Communist World Youth Movement. She attended their festival in 1962.  At the C.W.Y. Festival, however, she witnessed unfavourable events and conditions in Helsinki and did not  hesitate to speak on them. Too many "verbotens", empty  food stores and people who wanted to get out forced Amiel  to see the realism of the communist world at the time. She  did not favour it. But remaining "clothed in the mantle of  the left", and not wanting "to be a civil servant", she  "headed quickly for the media". There she has staunchly  stayed.  Confessions continues with tales, some preaching and  others professorial, about Amiel's work as a journalist. Interspersed with vignettes on magazine staffs, television  crews and film productions, are bits of Barbara's "life.  Along the way, she defends her views and justifies her actions without once giving in. She is obviously of the stuff  of which good journalists are made.  Coast News, August 4,1981  - Vans Psm.ll Photo  Lester R. Peterson, Gibsons historian, author of several books and founding member of the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum, receives a certificate honouring him as the first life member of the  coast's -only museum. Making the presentation July 29 was Ardlth Kent, former secretary and executive member of the museum society.  Festival Cocteau film  Blood of a Poet, 1930, a  film poem by Jean Cocteau, is  an examination of the psyche  that condenses past, present  and future into the present.  Personal and autobiographical, the film plunges into the  well of the mind, and the narrative serves only to develop  the metaphor.  In the first episode, the  young hero, an 18th century  painter, is at work on a  Picasso-like head. The mouth  of the drawing takes on a three  dimensional form and begins  to move. It then sticks to the  artist's hand when he tries to  erase it. Obsessed now, with  the art which has become part  of himself, he kisses the  mouth, and caresses his body  against it. In Narcissus-like  metamorphosis, he collapses.  Upon awakening, he finds  the mouth remains; an  animated wound, which he  transfers to the mouth of a  sculpture of a female Muse. A  modern Pygmalion, he brings  life to the Muse.  The Muse encourages him  to pass through a mirror into  the world'bejotid, in Orpheuslike fashion. Events become  more bizarre: a statue of the  Virgin shatters, is resurrected,  then again breaks. Here is a  symbol of religious tradition  which Cocteau rejects. In a  scene recalling the death of  Emperor Maximillian, in  which a Mexican (Cocteau) is  shot, Cocteau shows rejection  of the Nationalist tradition.  There is an attempt at  human flight, invoking the artist's tendency to fly in the  face of traditional constraints.  Encounters with opium, an  hermaphrodite and a pistol-  packing saleswoman who instructs- the hero to commit  suicide, all refer to Cocteau's  own experiences. The pistol  scene infers that an artist must  die a physical death to gain immortality in his art.  The third episode comments  on the indifference and scorn  of contemporary society, with  mythical references to the artist's self-sacrifice to his art.  The three episodes of the film  can be seen as three  metaphorical deaths - all of  which lead to the release of the  art from the artist, and the  assumption of life by art itself.  This film and selected  Shorts can be seen at the Arts  Centre, Tuesday August 11,  8:30 p.m. $3.00 and is part of  Arts Festival '81.  Also in the programme:  Selected titles from a group  that includes Behind the  Masks, Tom Shandel.

There  is a special reason for this  event. It is in appreciation of  those who have been members  of and have supported the  Welcome Beach Community  Association from the early  days of the construction and  organization of the Welcome  Beach Hall. Some of these  good people have now moved  away from the immediate area  and special invitations have  been extended to them, while  others still remain here and  continue to be very valuable  members. The Welcome Beach  Community Association is  putting on this affair and  those members who would  care to attend and to meet  some ol our pioneer members  will be most welcome to come  along. The time will be from  2:00 to 4:00 p.m. If you wish  to help in any way or would  like information you could  give Olive Comyn a call at  885-2378.  While mentioning Olive - it  was very sad news that her  brother Ernie Waycott of  Comox had passed away very  suddenly on July 18th, at the  age of 64. Many friends will  remember having met Ernie at  the Comyn's anniversary party  last year. Ernie had been in the  Air Force for most of his adult  years and upon retirement at  55 had decided to settle in  Comox. He leaves his wife,  two children and three grandchildren.

Their faces were  modestly concealed by veils  but their bare midriffs exposed  some very hairy navels.  Spoiled beach.  The residents of Henderson  Road were not pleased with  the mess left at the beach when  a house was barged in here.  Apparently a lot of fill had to  be put in to land the house and  it ruined the beach for those  who enjoy it for swimming  and sunning.  At last word the culprit had  no intention of cleaning it up.  There are people who feel they  can do what they want with a  public beach with no consideration for others. Not a  good way to make yourself  welcome in the  neighbourhood. Hopefully the  situation   will   be   remedied  before too many people get  upset.  Local festival.  Roberts Creek is noted for  its talented and artistic  residents but nowhere is that  better exemplified than in the  list of people participating in  the Sunshine Coast Arts  Festival in Sechelt starting today. Among the workshop instructors are Cindy Kirk with  pottery for children and Joan  Foster teaching painting outdoors, the latter right here at  Roberts Creek Hall. Sheila  Page and Rob Wood, both  teachers at Roberts Creek  Elementary last year, are doing, respectively, painting in  the park for children, and  photography.

It's a sturdy  6' x 8' structure worth an  estimated $1,000. It's fully insulated with panelling, a plug-  in, and a light switch and  there's furniture as well.  They'll have it on display at  the shopping malls during the  next few weeks so be sure to  get a ticket if you didn't at Sea  Cavalcade.  School expanding.

A portable has been moved onto the  grounds of Roberts Creek  Elementary to provide another  classroom.

Is your neighbourhood watched? If not, it should be���by  your neighbours. Alert  neighbours aware of the ever-  present potential for crime can  protect a mutual interest: community security.  The R.C.M. Police  Neighbourhood Watch program is entering into its second  month of operation. The four  summer students, Dawn Mad-  dern, Kenna Marshall, Nadene  Smethurst and Steve Ripper  have been greeted with a  generally positive response  from the Gibsons community.  Project leader Steve Ripper  stated that the "greater portion of residential crimes occur  simply because the opportunity to commit them existed".  Opportunity may be divided  into two categories:  1. The opportunity created by  the victim by his/her  carelessness, lack of attention  to security, and the failure to  co-operatae   with   his/her  neighbours and business colleagues.  2. The opportunity created by  the   criminal   by   his   skill,  ruthlessness or daring.  The latter category describes  the professional criminal.  It is believed by the police  that a small minority of crime  is caused by professional  criminal actitity. The bulk of  crime involves skilled or unskilled amateurs, and centres  around opportunities created  by the victims themselves.  According to Ripper, "One  offers an open invitation to  criminals or would-be  criminals by leaving a door  unlocked, a window opened or  by advertising the fact that one  is out with an unlit house, or  piled up newspapers". The  Neighbourhood Watch program emphasizes the importance of the "theory of reduction of opportunity".  "Crime prevention, a  before-the-fact   approach  to  crime control, requires active  neighbourhood cooperation."  The program will be covering  the following roads for the  week of August 3: Jacks Lane;  Beach Avenue; Seaview Road;  Glen Road; Bals Lane; Fair-  mount Road; Harvey Road;  Woodland Road; Reed Road;  Granthams Road; Marine  Drive; Tram Road; Feeney  Road; Soames Road.

YOUR SUNSHINE COAST HOSPITALITY DIRECTORY Fleming on Education  P  Coast News, August 4,1981  Democratic attitude needed  by Frances Fleming  Bere are literally thousands  of ways to make a living.  Schools do not spend enough  time pointing this out to our  children. Few children can  name more than four or five  occupations: teacher, nurse,  truck driver... What is worse,  l<ey tend to pick up a very  siobbish and unrealistic attitude toward manual work.  Slhool is academic; children  ate rated on academic performance alone. University is the  pteferred destination, and all  reads in secondary school lead  to it. Anyone who does not  "tnake it" is deemed inferior.  What a lot of rot!  Parents must dispel this  stipid attitude, and spend a  lo of time inculcating in their  children the dignity of labour,  th: rewards of plain hard  w|>rk. When children  misbehave in school, they are  of en put on "garbage detail"  art! made to clean up the  sclool yard as a punishment.  Tie lesson being taught is that  gdbage collection is inferior,  d ty, undesirable, whereas in  acuality it is most important  to Ihe health and beauty of our  community. Any child whose  pient works in sanitation gets  th: impression that their  pa-ent is doing inferior work,  wtrk to be ashamed of.  Tochers must be leaders in  re-peeling labour, and often  an not.  parents should point out to  thjir children that everyone  hs good points and weak  pants. People are happiest in  th work that revolves around  th'ir good points. If a girl is  frendly and outgoing and  lo'es people, she should plan  towork in a job that meets her  soial needs and where her  pesonality may be an asset. If  sh has manual dexterity, she  might think about hairdress-  iiti; if she is an excellent stu  dent and is healthy and strong,  she might consider nursing; if  she has persuasive skills and  likes a challenge, she might  dedicate her precious youth to  university education, she  might consider medicine, law,  education. Each of these job  clusters is important to our  society and our mythical student should be able to make a  "fit" after a careful evaluation of assets, personal, educational and financial.  People arrive at their life  work by varied and devious  routes. Few older people could  have foreseen their present  situations. Opportunities seized or passed over, influence  accepted or rejected, windfalls, health problems, education, family loyalties, disappointing performances,  betrayals of trust, most people's lives have the material  for novels hidden away in  puritan reserve.  Children should understand  this. Life will offer to each  young person many choices.  Preparing for work is like  writing for yourself a bus  ticket, loaded with educational  credits, work skills, personality characteristics, some ambition, and waiting for the bus  to come along to take you to  the next stage of your life.  When the right bus comes by,  you will know it, and if your  ticket is right, you will be  welcome aboard.  Parents could help their  children list the various occupations of the Sunshine  Coast: fishermen, loggers,  truckers, janitors, policemen,  gardeners, beauticians,  librarians, car mechanics,  cooks, doctors, nurses, technicians, lawyers, bankers,  clerks, teachers, social  workers, editors, ministers,  entertainers, artists, salespersons, electricians, construction  workers-literally hundreds of  occupations, each providing a  I!

Some of these occupations  depend upon personality and  integrity; some demand highly  developed skills and unusual  expertise; some are based  upon physical strength almost  exclusively; others require  almost a quarter of a century  of concentrated studies; some  are open to anyone who is willing to learn and who has aptitude; some are closed to all  but union members. In addition to the above mentioned  jobs, there are hundreds of  private enterprisers on the  Sunshine Coast who conduct  small businesses with good  success.  Informal studies of the  world of work on the Sunshine  Coast would be a fascinating  project for children to undertake during the summer break.  From this project one could  move to the cities, and to the  entire province at future dates.  Parents can help their children  not only gather the facts but  also develop the democratic  attitude that our academic  oriented schools seem unable  or unwilling to recognize as  vital to community accord.  ^%@����  In the season of  grief...we care.

Gibsons new Recreation  Director, Rob Liddicoat,  recently arrived from Clearwater, has officially taken  over his duties organizing  parks and recreation programs  as of July 20. Working from  his new office in Gibsons  Municipal Hall, Liddicoat has  been spending a large part of  his time "out of the office"  supervising the swimming pool  and visiting area parks.  Part of Liddicoat's responsibilities are to the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission, to help them plan the improvement and development  of parks in Areas E and F, as  well as those within the village  boundary.  Already Liddicoat likes a lot  of what he sees and does not  have plans to drastically  change things. "There are  various groups organizing  sports and I want to help them  out rather than take over from  them. I don't want them to see  me as a take-over kind of guy,  but rather as a source of advice and help."  Liddicoat says he is "always  game for something new" and  wants "to see people having  fun." He says "we've got it all  here" in natural surroundings  but that, "The old concept of  parks and playgrounds is,  changing. Organized sports  seem to be thriving and adventure playgrounds are becoming the thing."  A new project that he is  already working on is the  development of a park at  Smith Road in Langdale. He  believes green spaces are important for relaxing and wants  to encourage the use of  neighbourhood parks.  Born in Thunder Bay, Liddicoat came to Victoria when  he joined the Navy in 1968 and  has stayed in British Columbia  ever since. He has lived mainly  on Vancouver Island with his  wife Cheryl and three children  and has been in the recreation  V field for over seven years.  |�� He worked at the Comox  I Valley Sports Centre pool and  arena complex for several  years, then made a move to  Clearwater where he was  Recreation Director for one  year.  "I guess the coast has gotten  into my blood. I just couldn't  winters, even though I was  able to indulge in my favourite  sport, skiing. Gibsons is a  perfect place to live."  Liddicoat finds that recreation work is a new Held and  there are always new things  happening and much to learn.  "1 go away every year to  courses and conferences to  find out about latest  developments in recreation.  Unless you get together, you  don't hear of new approaches  and ideas."  Liddicoat is a member of  the B.C. Recreation Association, the B.C. Recreation  Facilities Association and the  Canadian Parks and Recreation Association.  Although Liddicoat has a  pool management certificate,  he does not have exceptional  swimming skills.  "All the staff at the pool are  qualified to give classes and  teach life-saving courses. My  job will be that of a  manager."  Liddicoat said he would  eventually like to see "some  add-ons" to the pool, such as  a small gym and racquet ball  courts.  "Pools traditionally operate  at a deficit, because there is no  way you could charge people  enough money to cover the  costs of pool operation.  However, additions such as  courts or gyms bring in  revenue and are an added attraction for people to use the  facilities."  Liddicoat would like "to  reach a larger population"  and attract them to take advantage of existing recreation  opportunities.

Those independent merchants would be at the fish  docks at the crack of dawn to  buy their seafood fresh from  the fisherman, they would  then fan out through the  streets of the city, hawking  their ocean products to the  housewives who would come  into the street when they heard  their cry or song.  This is still the best way to  get fresh products from the  small independent producer to  the consumer. This is free  enterprise working for the little man. The costs of transportation is greater now but the  refrigeration is better and the  products are maintained at a  greater degree of freshness.

Or those  that have ambitions in that  direction!  By the same token, I feel  that there is a place for a small  boat fishing operation and  that the Fisheries Department  should encourage and help  people who would like to be  involved in this sort of operation. The large boat owners  refer to the small boat people  as "ham and eggers", we must  not forget that the "big  boaters" started off as "ham  and eggers". Each person has  a right to do his thing!  Now, back to the old song!  "Cockles and Mussels - Alive,  Alive-O". That is the way to  keep them. Last week, old  Chak-Chak and his wife were  part of a little canoe trip and  picnic up Sechelt Inlet. We all  gathered cockles from  amongst the eel grass on the  beach. They were kept cool  and damp with seaweed for  the trip home, then they were  soaked overnight in a bucket  full of salted water with  oatmeal. This gets rid of the  sand. Change the water a couple of times if you can.  xOO^O.  * **:*-* * :\- :*: * :  by Sandy Loam  There is nothing more  refreshing or summery than a  potpourri of summer blooms  to freshen your living area, or  even a shaded area on your  patio.

Try not to dash them  into icy water as this is a shock  to their systems and does  nothing to freshen. If they are  just cut they are already fresh  and would rather not have  their tranquillity shattered by  an icy bath, much as you and  I.  Select flowers which are at  the beginning of their cycle,  rather than those on the wane.  They will last longer if the bees  have not had a chance at them  and they will produce more  blooms for the bees. After all,  going to seed is the life cycle of  a plant, by picking the flowers  you merely prolong the life cycle, rather than thwart it.  A summer mixture usually  involves a bit of everything  available, without denuding  garden colour splashes, all  jumbled into a tall vase filled  to the brim with water.  I am particularly fond of the  straight, up and down, clear  crystal vases, so that the stems  are visible. These vases also  keep you up to snap on changing the water, since they look  awful when the stems blur and  the water gets greenish.  A summer potpourri is best  with   some   tall   blues,  Hydrangea and Delphinium;  some yellow and pinks - long  stemmed snaps (don't worry,  they'll keep on blooming);  some deep pink Cosmos and  all the rest, whatever you  have, in giant Marigolds and  the many coloured Daisies.  You will bring your summer  garden right indoors.  Please do not place this  summer blast of colour on  your TV set as the set, if it's  on, will generate enough heat  to finish the flowers off in a  day. Don't place flowers in a  sunny window for the same  reason however pretty they  may look. Set them where they  will warm and brighten the  coolest, darkest spot you have,  keep the water fresh and they  should be good for two weeks  with a little culling.

These bivalves are quite tasty  but are inclined to be  tough.They should be opened  with a knife, remove and  discard the gills and digestive  glands (black and green portions).

August 4.1981  New Park opens  for divers  by Vent* Parnell  The sleek lines of the Royal  Hudson, CPR's steam engine  No. 2860, added an historic  touch to Ihe opening of  Porieau Cove Provincial  Park, July 28, billed by Parks  Minister James R. Chabot, as  B.C's "first park for divers".  Attending the picnic park  opening, along with the  historic train and the  Honorable Minister of Lands,  Parks, and Housing were local  dignitaries, press representatives and a train-load of invited guesis and government  employees and their families.  Accessible by train along the  CPR rail-line, by car from the  Vancouver to Squamish  highway or by private boat,  the II-acre park with 3,000  feet of waterfrontage is  located on Howe Sound, just  20 miles north of Vancouver.  Its main and unique attrac-  tion as a diver's park, especially attractive to novice divers  because of moderate depths  and minimal currents, has  been enhanced by the sinking  of three wrecks and the  building of an artificial reef.  Diver facilities include a  separate parking area, beach  access and a toilet/change  building with showers.  An all-season boat launch  ramp with protective  breakwaters, a fish-cleaning  station, a small beach and picnic area and a 44-unit vehicle  access campground are included.  The first phase of park  development has cost $765,000  and the second phase, to  develop Porteau Cove for  moorage and tent camp-sites,  a picnic shelter and trails, will  cost another $500,000.  The Royal Hudson and the  Minister and his entourage  were mel by the roussing  music of the Kitsilano Boys  Band Alumni, directed by Arthur W. Delamont.  Guests of honour were the  president of the B.C. Railway,  A.Rutley, who made the land  available to the provincial  government, Donald Ross,  mayor of Surrey, Alan Em-  mott, chairman of the Greater  Vancouver Regional District,  Dan Cummings, chairman of  the Lillooet-Squamish  Regional District, Ross  Woodhouse, president of Dillingham Corporation who built  the boat launch, breakwater  and provided the rubble for  the artificial reef, Neil Mac-  Daniel, editor of Divers  Magazine, and Christopher  Gray, assistant Deputy  Minister of Lands, Parks and  . Housing, who was also Master  of Ceremonies.  The crowd spilled over the  flag-decorated parking and  picnic area, and after the  unveiling of the plaque by the  minister, enjoyed a picnic  lunch of sandwiches, fresh  fruit, cake, coffee, juice and  milk. Afterwards there were  diving and seining demonstrations by Parks staff and, at the  end of the day, the ride home  on the Royal Hudson with excited children pacing the train  through the fancy parlour  cars.  Porteau Cove, named for  Porte d'eau, or "water gate"  remains to invite divers and  visitors to the three sunken  ships of Porteau, host to exciting sea-life and underwater  adventure for future genera-  lions of British Columbians.  Minister or Lands, Parks and Housing, James R. Chabot,  relaxes In the parlour car of B.C's historic (rain, the Royal Hudson, en route to the opening of B.C's first diver's park at  Porteau Cove on Howe Sound. ��� v.��� p.���ii pnoto  Almond and status quo  is your cap begging lor a  second chance?

In the ten years or so since I  became involved with  Regional government I have  heard more people���many  more���express satisfaction  with electoral area representation regionally than otherwise.  Looking at the reasons for  the villages' desire to expand  boundaries: To expand their  tax base? Are we to assume  then that the majority of people who chose to live in a rural  area and who receive most of  the services they require at a  reasonable cost must join in  one of the villages to pay more  for what they get now? Isn't it  likely that once part of a  village they would expect and  demand more services which  would again increase costs?  Perhaps the tax base of Port  Mellon is not being shared  fairly. Perhaps an adjustment  in that regard would be acceptable. But one does not dig up  a plant to pick a flower.  It is said that electoral areas  use the services of the villages  for free. The only ones that I  know of are the pool in Gibsons and the arena in Sechelt,  both of which were built  without reference to electoral  area tax payers and both of  which tend to increase in annual deficits and both of  which are being assisted financially by electoral areas voluntarily. No doubt also the electoral areas benefit favourably  under the present 10 mill basic  assessment for general government services. But I can  assume this will not last  forever and I don't doubt the  Provincial government sees in  restructuring a means of passing on more costs to the local  tax payer, instead of giving  Gibsons Ready Mix  886-8174  'Drainrock "Washed Rock  'Sand 'Fill  'Concrete Anchors  Mon.���Friday 8a.m.���5p.m  relief to the village residents  who need more financial aid.  In regard to the area I represent, Roberts Creek, I feel  generally the residents have no  interest in changing their present situation in the regional  system. The remark I made of  choosing to joli with Sechelt  rather than Gibsons was made  to see reactions; which were  soon apparent. One village  sees the statement with delight  to the dismay of the other.  The prospect of a division in  the middle of Roberts Creek  by annexation by one village  or another I am sure would  meet with strong objections  from the majority of the  residents, as would the insulting suggestion that Area D  become a ward of the Provincial government. On what  would one base an assumption  that an area of 1600 voters is  of less importance than a  village of 2500 voters, more or  less, overburdened with five  aldermen and mayor? Not to  mention Sechelt in a similar  situation with only 800 voters.  Who needs to be a ward of  what?  If restructuring is inevitable  then I believe that in order to  achieve economy of administration and less  parochialism and more efficient provision of services,  then one district municipality  is the only answer, provided  that representation on an area  basis in maintained, possibly  with the addition of one or  two more aldermen elected at  large and a mayor elected at  large. Also of great importance would be the retention  of the Settlement Plans and  the process of formulating  them. Taxation would have to  be on a point system relating  to the services each tax payer  receives.  I am convinced that given  the facts and the proper opportunity to vote, the vast majority of people in electoral  areas, not just Roberts Creek,  would favour such a change. I  am also convinced that the  creation of three  municipalities would foster  unhealthy rivalry and bitterness where a feeling of  freedom and individuality now  exists.  However, without assurance  that the rights and opinions of  the people whom I represent  would be respected, I will insist on the maintenance of the  status quo.

Nature inspired  jewellery popular  by Vene Parnell  Silver Sea Handmade  Jewelry is handsomely printed  in silver and blue on Irene  Blueth's calling card. The  name is aptly chosen, because  much of Irene's jewelry is  silver and much of it is inspired by the sea.  Not that Irene calls on people very often these days. She  is kept busy with people calling on her with orders for  custom jewelry. Also, the demand to supply the three retail  outlets she uses locally, the  Hunter Gallery in Gibsons,  Bullwinkle's and Nancye's in  Sechelt is enough to fill up  much of her spare time.  The surge in demand for  Irene's silver jewelry is gratifying and she is not complaining. In her small home-  workshop on Tyson Road,  Irene has gradually built up  her silver-smithing trade over  eight years of experimental  designs and techiques and the  one thing that has established  her work is its originality.  "I never have any trouble  thinking of ideas. It's finding  the time or figuring out a way  to try them out that's  sometimes difficult.  Showing items ready for  sale in anticipation of the upcoming Craft Fair associated  with the Second Annual Sunshine Coast Arts Festival in  Sechelt, August 8 and 9, Irene  points out her most popular  jewelry. In the lower-price  range, $15 or less, there are  simple silver rings, pierced  silver hoop earrings and  delicate sea-shell earrings that  are beautifully-matched.  Her more exotic pieces include cedar cast necklaces,  rings set with precious stones,  Inlaid paua and abatone shell  pendants   and   other   inlay  Al Wigntr  Al Wagner  Invites you  to join  Big  Brothers  A service of friendship freely given by  men, to boys without  fathers.  For Information  886-2615  .      885-5664     J  designs using enamel, black  coral, ebony, ivory or wood.  There is some gold jewelry  also, although Irene usually  only uses gold for custom  orders, rather than on speculation, because of the high cost-  of the precious metal.  Born in Montreal, where she  attended art school, Irene arrived on the Sunshine Coast in  1969 and by that time, she had  already tried her hand at  several craft forms, such as  batik and working with brass  to make costume-jewelry.  "It was my father who gave  me some pliers when I first  started working with brass  wire and showed me what to  do with them. He is an  engineer and quite a technical  person so perhaps some of his  ability rubbed off on me.  "I never had any interest in  jewelry, never coveted it or admired it particularly until I  began to work, with it. Slowly,  ' I became more interested when  I found it was a saleable  trade and through books and  the advice of other people who  were making jewelry I started  to learn how to work with  precious metals and stones."  When Irene first arrived on  the coast, she lived at Storm  Bay in Sechelt Inlet and when  she came to town she sold  beads she had made out of the  local clay in the area.  "Times were easier, then, it  seems. We had to travel by  boat and didn't get to town  very often, but it seemed easy  to live off the land and get  what we needed."  Irene recalls many meals of  fresh oysters available near by.  Eventually, her only sister,  Evi, who sells original batik-  design artwork and clothing,  moved to the coast and the  two sisters settled in the Gibsons area.  Irene's workshop today is  quite elaborate, compared to  those early days when she  began learning to use a pair of  pliers.  She has a kiln and a centrifuge for casting silver; a  rolling mill for stretching wire;  an oxy-acetylene torch for  soldering; pliers, files and  various chemical solutions for  finishing work; a rock-  grinding and polishing wheel  for stones; and an assortment  of unfinished silver designs  waiting to be fashioned into an  original piece of jewelry.  Although the sea holds a  great deal of fascination for  Irene, she finds inspiration in  the finer details of nature surrounding her country home  and garden and has used tiny  mushrooms, flowers, ferns  and cedar branch tips as molds  for casting original nature  jewelry. Her most popular effort has been cedar-cast  jewelry which she shapes into  necklaces, rings and earrings.  Instead of carving wax  molds as in conventional  casting, Irene places the  natural materials in plaster  and heats them in a kiln, causing them to burn away. The  plaster mold is then filled with  molten silver and a centrifuge  is used to set the silver in the  tiny crevices evenly, creating  detailed intricate silver  shrimp, cedar branches and  flowers.  Then comes the filing and  polishing of the rough edges,  oxidizing to give the silver  details some contrast and  finally shaping the soft silver  into pleasing designs.  Irene's latest fascination is  with amber stones, the ancient  golden stones formed in the  sea. You might expect with  such a wide array of ideas and  materials, Irene would not be  plagued with a lack of gift-  ideas at Christmas time. But  unfortunately, she says, she is  so busy filling orders for  jewelry for others to give that  Christmas becomes her busiest  work season and she has no  time to do things for herself.  Irene travels to craft fairs in  the summer to sell her things,  "mostly because they are so  much fun" and is organizing  this year's Arts Festival Craft  Fair.  Letters to the Editor  Unattended children near drowning  Coast News, August 4,1981  15  Editor: ^^^^^^^  I would like to express my  concern for the welfare of  children who are left alone on  the beach to swim, by telling  you what happened on July  26, 1981.  I wis at Chaster Park beach  swimming. It was quite rough.  Beside myself and a few other  adults, there was a young boy,  Intimidation  Editor:  I wonder how many of the  local residents are finding that  they are still being harassed  when launching their boats at  the public launching ramp at  Coopers Green.  I was recently treated in a  most outrageous manner when  towing my small boat out of  the water - was told that I was  on private property, sworn at,  and finally threatened by a  body of campers who had  been called upon to physically  remove me from the area.  This kind of intimidation  must not be allowed. I am a  resident of Redrooffs Road in  close proximity to the green,  and to be informed by people  from other parts of the country who happen to be camping  there that I have no right to be  there is beyond belief.  I have since contacted the  Department of Highways requesting that a sign be erected  to indicate that this is indeed a  public waterfront area and  ramp, only to be informed  that -quote - "The sign would '  only be removed as soon as it  was erected". It is surely a  criminal offence to remove  such signs. Why, in this particular area should this go unpunished?  I have only been in residence  here for the past two years,  and while I have heard many  accounts of such behaviour at  the green, I did not quite  believe it until it happened to  me.  George Carpenter  ' "There will be silk-screened  items, photographs, stained  glass, pottery, wooden toys,  jewelry, lots of good food and m  much more. Visitors can look  forward to Greek salad,  Scotch oat-cakes, and  guacamole and buy original  crafts in Hackett Park for two  days, August 8 and 9."  Irene is also giving a five-  day workshop in silver-  smithing in connection with  the Arts Festival, August 10  -13, which will be limited to 10  persons.  "I hope to teach people  enough about silver working  so that they can finish some  items and then go and make  their own things at home."  It is the personal contact  with people, whether teaching,  selling at craft fairs, or  discussing custom jewelry  designs, that Irene enjoys the  most in her work. And then  there is the special satisfaction  of creating something  beautiful, personal and  valuable, a keepsake that is  worn, enjoyed and treasured.  "All my things find a home,  eventually. They are all different, I very seldom do two  the same. I know each one will  appeal and be just right for someone."  approximately 8 years old, and  a young girl, approximately 4  or 5 years old. The bottom of  the ocean is quite uneven in  that area as it is shallow near  the beach, where the little girl  (Carrie) was, then there is a  drop-off, where I was, then  again becomes shallow, where  Carrie's brother was.  The boy, while his back was  turned to his sister, repeatedly  called for her to come to him.  Everything was fine until she  left the shallow part and came  to the drop-off. Huge waves  kept roaring in over Carrie's  head and dragged her under. I  was then approximately 20  feet away. She came up and  screamed for help. Those 20  feet were probably the longest  20 feet ever. I swam as fast as I  could to her, grabbed her and  took her back to the shallow  part. Her brother never heard  anything. I asked him later  where his parents were. He  told me they were in Gibsons.  1 am not trying to be a hero,  I'm a little upset that those  children   were   left   alone.

Rockwood Lodge in Its prime. The gardens were well kept and Included a fish stock pond and a  canary house (upper left). The canaries were brought to Sechelt in a large cage held by an old man  aboard a Union Steamship vessel. When the old man died, Major T. Douglas Sutherland moved  the birds to his home, called In later years the 'Wakefield Inn'. When Major Sutherland left  Sechelt he gave the birds to the Youngson family. - Helen mccsui moto  Courtesy ot Helen Dswe Collection  nterior of lounge at Rockwood Lodge, circa 1941-43.

The  ictual name was Ann Mcintosh, who was a cousin of Jessie Ann Youngson. The Sevres china on  he mantel Is owned (In 1980) by Betty Ingram, daughter of Jessie and BUI Youngson. Boards for  he mantel over the lounge fireplace, special shelves, etc., arrived in Sechelt aboard Union Steam-  Up vessel. These special woods came wrapped In brown butchers paper. They were supplied by  V.S. Burley, proprietor of B.C. Fir and Cedar Co., the father of local resident, Norm Burley.  . ��.S. Towell ftiolo  Courtesy ol Helen Dswe Collection  Rockwood Lodge, on  Shorncliffe Avenue in Sechelt,  celebrated its 45th anniversary  on Monday, July 27.  A wine and cheese party was  held at the lodge on that evening, the courtesy of the present  owners, Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce.  The commemoration  celebrated the opening of the  lodge in 1936. Rockwood was  1 built and operated by Mr. and  Mrs. William and Jessie  Youngson. Helen Dawe, town  historian, told the Coast News  that the night before the opening in 1936, the competition,  the Union Steamship Hotel,  burned down.  The Youngsons ran the  lodge for ten years and had a  very successful business.  Among their many guests were  members of parliament and  government men who were in  the area on business, school  inspectors and special guest,  James Sinclair, father of  Margaret Trudeau.  The business changed hands  five times before Mrs. Dzierda  Rozentals bought the property  in 1977 with the intention of  turning it into a nursing home.  The provincial government  would not provide the funding, so the attempt was unsuccessful.  The fate of Rockwood  Lodge was uncertain until the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce, whose president in  1930 was Mayor Bud Koch,  raised funds to buy the proper  ty. It is presently housing the  Chamber of Commerce office.  Bob Dull of Baa Eirtarpitas M.

"He would hit me often,  beat me periodically and mentally abuse me every waking  moment," Elizabeth tells me  of her two year relationship in  which she was a battered wife.  Elizabeth is an attractive,  intelligent and independent  24-year old woman. She holds  down a full-time job and is the  single parent of a four-year  old.  Elizabeth consented to being interviewed by the Coast  News because of her empathy  for women who are still living  in the 'nightmare'. Women  who live in fear for their lives  with little or no hope of  escape.  "I feel it is important that  they know they are not alone  and they are not to blame. Life  doesn't have to end in a battering relationship."  The issue of battered  women has been deemed important enough and the  numbers significantly high on  | the Sunshine Coast by the  Ministry of Human Resources  that a grant of $50,000 has  been received to develop a program and facility to shelter  battered women in the area.  A letter of recommendation  from Karin Hoemberg of the  Continuing Education program on the Coast; from the  local branch of the Ministry of  Human Resources; the interagency council; and from a  study made by Deborah  Mealia to survey and assess the  needs   of  Sunshine   Coast  VILLAGE  OF GIBSONS  LAND  SALE  ABBS  ROAD  V  i-  2 <M  I X z  ���z.  by municipal  subdivision  abbs road  r~  The Municipality of Gibsons invites Interested  purchasers to submit bids for the purchase of that  portion of Lot 2 of Block 1, District Lot 686, Plan  13142, Group 1, N.W.D., as highlighted In the  sketch plan above.  The subject property has potential for subdivision  into three (3) single family lots as indicated above.  Present zoning on the property Is Single Family  Zone 1-R1.

Copland  Administrator  women with regard to educational programs, facilities, and  services; prompted the  Ministerial grant.  The most desired serviee  chosen by the majority of  women was an Emergency  Shelter for Women in Temporary Distress. The survey  explains:  "A recently publicized  study by the National Advisory Council on the Status ol  Women disclosed that one in  ten women In Canada is  physically battered and abused.  "If this is an accurate  declaration, then there are approximately 400 abused or  battered women on the  Coast... perhaps it can be  assumed that this statistic is  not so far-fetched."  Elizabeth leafs through the  shopping bag full of information and statistics during the  interview, (the material on  loan from local social worker  and expert on battered  women, Donnie Patterson).  I see her head nod in  acknowledgement as she reads  the testimony from other battered women. In recognition  of the similarities of their  fates, the rage and disgust still  show, even though it has been  four years since the separation. As she tells her story, the  horror of it shocks.  "My husband was charming, good-looking, and  generous to a fault with money  we didn't have. We lived at  poverty level but he always  had a hot car and enough  money to buy a round.  Everybody thought I had a  'good catch'.  "It was so subtle and complex that I didn't know it was  happening until it was almost  too late. He made me feel inadequate   and   unattractive.

Copland  VON 1V0 Administrator  Often he would tell me to  lhank my lucky stars that I  had him because nobody else  would put up with me. If you  are constantly being put down,  you start believing.  "I became emotionally  dependent on him. I felt if he  left me my life would be over.  Consequently, I put up with a  lot."  Elizabeth tells about the  jealousy and possessiveness  ("I was just another of his  possessions") that her husband had inflicted on her, cut-  ling her off from friends and  the support they might have  given her.  The accusations of sexual  infidelity figure prominently  as a device to ensure the  adherence lo the mens' rules  of isolation.  "I had to stop seeing my  friends and later when I got  pregnant 1 was not only dependent on him emotionally, I  was totally dependent on him  financially. We lived in the  country, so he was my  transportation, in or out."  From the emotional abuse,  the pattern of violence set in,  Elizabeth tells me. It began  with a push, a shove, a slap  and then the beatings.  "After the beatings the  remorse was so genuine, I  wanted to believe him. This  was the person I fell in love  with and I married. I kept  hoping the promises would  come true, that things would  get better."  Why don't the assaulted  women leave?  Initially, an assaulted  woman often stays because she  wants the marriage to work  and hopes he will change. She  may try harder to be a "good  wife". Frequently, a woman  thinks "he does it because he's  sick, so she tries to nurse him  to good health by giving him  more love and understanding.  When this approach doesn't  work and she realizes she cannot handle the situation  herself, a woman may turn to  others for help without success. Reports by Canadian  assaulted women agree with  the conclusion of a widely-  cited American study; "Most  agencies and most legal  organizations are quite unprepared and unable to provide meaningful assistance to  women who have been beaten  by their husbands." She Is left  with no confidence in herself  or the community.  Once the pattern of violence  has been established, leaving  may be a risky and difficult  option. Assaulted women are  frequently too scared to leave.  Sometimes violent husbands  threaten to kill their wives If  the latter try to leave.  Also, "being on your own is  very scary if you've never been  on your own." Or "I put up  with it for the sake of the  children. There was nowhere  to go, no money to feed them,  no alternative home to offer  them."  Elizabeth felt that there was  no one to turn to; she didn't  want to involve her parents  because she thought that if  there was a chance of reconciliation and the relationship  did start working they would  hate him; she knew that if the  police were called they could  only protect her from immediate harm.  But the great fear of the  repercussions from such action, her husband's anger  would make the matter much  worse.  She tells of the advice a  friend gave to have a peace  bond placed on him;  "At three in the morning,  living in the country with no  transportation and a new-born  child, a heck of a lot of good  waving a piece of paper would  do to protect me as the door  was being broken down."  Incidents preceding the  violence were not provoked.  Elizabeth tells of a horrible  hour spent at knife point.  "You fight your own panic  and think of survival, which  means you say anything he  wants to hear and put up with  what is being dished out, all  the while hoping he isn't going  to kill you."  The statistics say that most  battered women have the same  feelings that Elizabeth had.  "If I leave he will hunt me  down and kill me. If 1 stay 1  will only get beaten."  Don't women provoke the  attack?  "Provocation often exists  only in the mind of the provoked."  Canadian women report a  wide range of actions which  trigger an assault. "I fried his  eggs the wrong way". "I  didn't turn down the radio  enough". "I took Ihe children  out for supper without asking  his permission". Some women  are hauled out of bed and  beaten.  When a man places the  blame on his wife wilh "she  provoked me", he is trying to  escape Ihe responsibility for  his violence-  Elizabeth's husband was an  ex-boxer. He knew that in a  court of law his clenched fists  would be considered a lethal  weapon. He never struck her  with his fist, so his argument  of 'blacking out' during the  beating episodes was false. He  had enough control to  remember that.  Isn't the husband who  assaults his wife mentally ill?  Wife assault is loo  widespread lo be the work of a  few mentally sick men. Dr.  Suzanne Steinmelz, a renowned expert In family violence,  believes: "The answer lo the  question 'What kind of man  beats his wife' Is: 'Every kind',  and they can be located in so-  called normal families."  II seems likely that wife  beating is learned behaviour.  For example, a son learns lo  use violence by watching his  father heal his mother or by  being beaten himself as a  child.  In general, our society  tolerates men's use of violence  lo exerl authority over  women, and especially of  husbands over wives. An experiment has confirmed that if  bystanders perceive a woman  and her attacker are married,  they will be less likely lo intervene, than if Ihey suppose  the two are strangers.  "1 feel I'm one of the lucky  ones," Elizabeth tells me. "It  didn't mailer after a while  what happened to me. You  become sort of numb, the  spirit goes out of you. It was  my daughter who saved us.  When I saw my husband pick  her up and throw her across  the room, I came back to earth  long enough to see the horror  of it all. I knew that I had to  protect her, provide for her a  life without fear. I had to survive for her even though I had  lost the will."  Elizabeth   still   feels   the  repercussions of the violent  relationship. The lasi bits erf  insecurity and self-doubt stiff  linger, but Ihe self-blame haS  gone. :  "It is nice to see, and 1 donl  mean to be morbid, Ihe loo|  of shock on your face as I leD  you this story," Elizabelfi  says. "It just reaffirms for mi  how good and how lucky I am  to be out, that a life like thai;  doesn't have to be a reality.'���;  A public meeting will I*.'  held to discuss Ihe develop*  menl of a facility to shelief  battered women in Ihe area, al  Ihe Sechelt Village Office ad  Monday, August 10, at 7:M  p.m. il is hoped lhat ihii  meeting will be well attended.-  Hydro pensions  During the postal strike,  pension cheques for the more  than 2,700 B.C.

Apart from their ugly appearance they are a nuisance  to the sport fisherman and  more than just a nuisance to  commercial fisherman.  Schools of 1,000 dogfish have  been known to follow herring  shoals.  There are two common  species of dogfish and they  differ mainly in breeding  habits. The Spotted Dogfish is  a European fish that lays eggs.  Each egg is encased in an  oblong horny case, sometimes  called a mermaid's purse.  These cases have tentacles on  them that wrap around  seaweed to hold them in place.  They are laid any time of the  year and take six months to  hatch.  The Spiny Dogfish or Spiny  Spurdog lives in the North  Atlantic and the Pacific  Oceans. The spiny aspect of  this fish is caused by small  denticles set in the skin where  other fish would have scales.  Each denticle is like a small  sharp tooth made up of a pulp  cavity enclosed in dentine with  an enamel layer on the outside. Their skin was at one  time used as a sandpaper in  cabinet making. It is reported  that some British trawlermen  scrub the decks of their boats  with the dogfishes' rough skin,  sometimes with the live fish  still inside.  The breeding habits of the  ..gpjfly,Dogfish are much dif-���  ferent than those of the Spot-*  ted Dogfish. The females  come inshore to give birth to  3-11 live young, each about 11  inches long. The males arrive  soon after from deeper waters  and mating takes place. The  months of February and  March are usually the breeding  months for these fish. The  female will carry for a year.  The Spiny Dogfish is a  migratory fish and in summer  travels northward up to 1,200  miles in large schools. Its diet  is mainly fish which is caught  by scent rather than sight. In  fact its eyesight is very poor  and it may swim past its prey if  it doubles back.  Dogfish are put to many  uses and by far the best known  is as a subject for dissection in j  biology classes. About 100,000  are used each year in North  America and Britain. They are  marketed in Britain as 'rock  salmon' and sold in the fish  and chip shops in the south of  England. They are eaten extensively in Japan and their  use in North America as  'grey fish' is increasing.  This column is to share  Nature Lore, so if you have information or questions, call  886-8029.

The tools of our trade,  two files and a carborundum  stone "liberated" from  Woodward's Hardward  Department, were now housed  in a somewhat battered and  dilapidated black bag, similar  to the ones carried by  members of the medical profession. We had found it in a  church thrift shop located in  an alley beside the Carnegie  Library building and it had  cost us 25 cents. We had acquired, from a source now  forgotten, three sheets of  sandpaper and they, along  with the files and stone and a  strip off an old flannel shirt,  were all the bag contained.  Eddie, like all good generals  planning a battle, had Ihe city  mapped out into various  districts and areas where we  would operate. He had chosen  West Point Grey as the scene  of our first onslaught, so after  a breakfast of doughnuts and  coffee at the Wonder Lunch  on Carrall Street we headed in  that direction. I must confess  that most of my enthusiasm  for the task ahead had vanished during the night and now,  due to the mixture of ale, rye  and loganberry wine consumed the previous evening, I had  a monumental hangover and  was ready to call the whole  thing off. One of the most  remarkable things about Eddie  was that he never appeared to  suffer from these "morning-  after" effects and, far from  being depressed or doubtful of  the outcome of whatever  scheme he was engaged in, was  as buoyant and confident as  the night before.  He had concocted a story  that I was his brother-in-law, a  master tradesman from Sheffield, England, who due to his  First World War wounds was  in no condition to carry on  with his former occupation  and instead was now offering  his services in the sharpening  field. Supposedly, 1 was an expert not only on steel but on  all articles of a ferrous nature.  According to him I could tell  at a glance, without bothering  to read the imprint, whether a  knife, chisel or a pair of  scissors came from Solingen,  Germany, Ostersund, Sweden  or Worcester, Mass. All this of  course, was a lot of hogwash,  but presumably such a story as  narrated by Eddie impressed  the ladies and in no time at all  we had customers.  In view of the fact that I was  only 30 years of age so could  scarcely have participated in  the War my partner was so  vividly describing to these  good housewives, 1 had to remain hidden in the back lanes  where I attempted, with varying degrees of success, to put  an edge on the various articles  Eddie brought me. Having  been an on and off again cook  in the past, I did know a little  about sharpening a knife and,  in my Glengarry cabin days,  had filed crosscut saws for the  local farmers but that was the  extent of my knowledge. Now,  however, I was to learn that  the softer the steel the easier it  was to put an edge on it but,  unlike really fine tempered  steel, that edge would not hold  up for very long.  Eddie was efficiency itself.  He carried a small black  notebook and a pencil and  kept notes of all our activities,  including the names of the  streets and the number of the  houses visited. In addition, he  had a special way, known only  to himself, of marking or  designating how a particular  house rated in regard to the  reception received and a possible return visit. Later, if he obtained the name of the owners,  he would look them up in the  city directory with a view, I  imagine, of "putting the  touch" on them at some later  date if the going got tough.  At the end of that first day  we returned to the Madrona  Rooms on Cordova Street,  where we were staying, and  counted our loot. It was not  large but it was encouraging as  we had made a shade over  eight dollars which, after  deducting the streetcar fare,  gave us four dollars apiece.  Later, as I became not only  faster but more proficient at  the job, we did better and  there were days, although they  were infrequent, when we  made as high as $10 or $12 a  day which was not bad at all  considering the depressed  times we were operating in.  I   shall   never   forget   one  memorable occasion up in the  Shaughnessy   area   when   a  matron   of   uncertain   age  became so carried away with  my partner that she invited  him in. She lived on one of the  Crescents and it so happened  that her husband, a top executive of a large textile firm,  was away on a business trip to  New York. Whether she was  oversexed or just plain lonely 1  don't know, but she shared  Eddie's love for gin and, what  is more, had the means to indulge it. I never found out  how he explained my youth to  her, perhaps he hadn't got  around to telling her I was a  veteran, but I was called in to  assist   in   the  ensuing  proceedings.  While  Eddie was  upstairs taking care of the lady  of the house, 1 was downstairs  dallying  with  the  maid,  a  rather plain girl in her twenties. She may have been not  much to look at but she obviously knew her way around  in a bedroom. I well remember  we had "hit" this house on a  Monday morning and we were  still   there   on   the   Friday  following, with only brief sorties downtown, on my part, to  replenish    the    liquid  refreshments.   All  told,  we  were there five days and I  don't   recall   sharpening  anything. There were so many  other things that had to be attended to!  We might have stayed there  indefinitely, or at least until  old age or overwork carried us  off, but unfortunately the executive was due to return on  the Saturday morning so we  had to get out of there before  he arrived. By this time both  of us were in grim shape and  badly in need of a rest.  However, from a financial  standpoint, it had been a pro-  LET THE SUNSHINE IN!

I have often wondered how  she explained to her husband  that two fine suits were missing from his wardrobe and  about a half-dozen expensive  shirts and several pairs of  shoes had, in some mysterious  fashion, also gone astray.  They were far too large in size  for either of us to wear but fetched a reasonably good price  when, after a good deal of  haggling, we pawned them at  the San Francisco Tailors right  across the street from the  Palace Hotel.
