Ii seems that  on every television channel and on  several wavebands of the radio there  is for our sometimes jaded consumption that classic of Christmas  time, Charles Dickens' A Christmas  Carol. How jaded we are in these  dark and troubled winter days. We  have heard it all before and wc  know better than to allow ourselves  the outpouring of positive feeling  and hope Ihat the season somehow  demands of us.  How much of the preparatory  lime do we spend feeling that we  observe the season for lhe wrong  reasons. Well, it's a lol of work but  we must do it for the children. Well,  it's a lot of work but we musi do ii  for the cash register. Well, it's a lot  of work but we must do it,  Is il not true thai a pari of us approaches Christmas every year and  we are Scrooge? Christmas! Bah,  Humbug! But something creeps  over us. Some memory or some  hope, some inner warmth in a cold  season.  After all is said and done Ihis  solstice season as the declining sun  with all its warmth and hope slarts  back towards us is, for the people of  the predominant culture, regarded  as the time of Christ's birlh. Jesus  Christ, Son of God, son of man. Let  the doctrinal guardians dance on (he  heads of their doctrinal pins. For  anyone whose charge it is not to interpret but to feel and whose  background has given ihem  awareness of the Old and the New  Testaments what is to be felt is Ihat  some two thousand years ago  something historical happened. The  concept of the Creator and the Plan  for whom we all hunger somewhere  within us and towards which we all  aspire was drastically modified.  The concept of the Creator as  vengeful and demanding guardian  was altered by the historic presence  of the man called Jesus. He taught  that in the greal swirl of man's days  and ways the principle of Love was  predominant over the principle of  Fear. Lei ihe doctrinaire decide  whether he was man or God. It is  enough in these frightened times  ihat he spoke of and with Love.  Thai he urged us lo think of our  neighbours no less lhan we thought  of ourselves.  The world we live in is seemingly  an increasingly divided world.  Those organs which exist lo bring us  news of ihe world lell us constantly  of the conflicts and lhe failings of  our troubled, energetic, and embattled species. At this lime of Ihe year,  il is a man who became called Christ  who taught that Love was the way,  lhe forgiveness was the key, that  hope was a possibility.  So it is, I think in Ihe world of  knowing beyond knowing we address ourselves al lhe darkest lime  of the year skeptically and Scroogelike towards lhe onerous business of  caring and continuing to hope.  Scrooge-like also after Ihe bleakness  has been undergone we find  ourselves, because ii is lhe noblest  alternative, being inclined lowards a  warmer world of hospitality and  hope than we had dared lo believe  was possible.  And so ii is, aspiring gratefully  lowards ihe essential hopefulness of  lhe season lhal the staff of Ihe Coasl  News through lhe often frail  medium of iis editor joins forces  wilh lhe forces of the season,  welcomes wiih gratitude the  knowledge of the reluming sun, and  Ihe historic message of Jesus Christ  and wishes upon our species a world  of Love rather than a world of Fear,  wishes for all mankind before Ihe  final nighl Hie opportunily to sun  ourselves together in a world in  which our neighbour is as important  as ourselves, in a world in which the  dark nighl of Fear begins to recede  as surely as lhe winler darkness.  A Merry Christmas lo all. Lei ihe  presenl be lhe darkest hours just  before lhe dawn. May lhe message  of Universal Love first spoken by  Jesus Christ live in all our hearts.  ..from the files of the COAST NEWS  ^rq|^eir|peg| p  FIVE YEARS AGO  The following was an editorial  re-printed In the Coast News of  December 1976 from a Coast  News of 1959.  The rise in living costs continues. It may be gradual but it is  there nevertheless.  The difference between  December of 1957 and  December of 1958 is 3.1 points  up, according to the consumer  price index.  TEN YEARS AGO  The Department of Indian Affairs has informed the Regional  District Board that It Is In the  process of planning a sewage  treatment plant for the Sechelt  Indian Reserve.  The board will inform the  department it has no such plans  and suggests the matter be  referred to Sechelt council on  the basis that Sechelt might  want to consider a joint facility.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Drinkers who want to be car  drivers are warned that there  will be RCMP road patrols making checks at unexpected  places during the holidays.  Local police will be  augmented by patrols from outside points and a close check  will be maintained, RCMP  report.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  From the personal column:  OLGA - Are you a little Svenska?  Don't eat chlorphyll to be kissing sweet. Eat Bob Donley's Kippers to be kissing Swedes.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  One street light has been installed in the village here. The  first fixture, which is hoped to  be a permanent fixture, is attached to the light pole beside  the Sunset Store.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Sechelt: Power wires down,  planes stalled and barges breaking loose were some of the  results of the recent storm  which sent so many ships to the  nearest port.  Driftwood of unprecedented  amounts filled the harbour at  Gibsons while logs which have  not moved since 1934 have been  washed from their beds.  Vicloria, aboul 1857. As midshipman, Richard Charles Mayne  had visited Fori Victoria firsl in 1849, while il served as a  Hudson's Bay Company post. On his return in 18S7, as  lieutenant-commander, assigned lo survey duties, he found lhal  the stockade had been removed and Ihat a cluster of buildings had  developed. Mayne enjoyed the Christmas-Yule season on board  The inner beauty of joy and faith  lhe "Plumper" at nearby Esquimau and il funclions in Ihe grow*'  ing trade and governmeni cenlre. Commander Mayne wrote of his  experiences here in an illustrated book entitled "Four Years in  British Columbia and Vancouver Island" published in 1862. The  Parliament Buildings now sland lo the right of Ihe bridge, on land.  reclaimed from Ihe bay. L.R. Peterson  Marvanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  Some weeks ago the  patients in Extended  Care at St. Mary's were  entertained by a  demonstration of the art  of make-up. A frail little  lady wheeled into the  dayroom by a friend,  asked "What is going  on?" "Oh, they're going  to make you beautiful",  the friend said. "Oh  gracious" was the reply,  "It'll take the Resurrection to do that"!  When I'd stopped  chuckling at this witty  repartee, 1 realized the  irony, Annie Spencer has  such a nice sense of  humour and never seems  to take herself seriously.  Annie has an inner radiance which lights u|S  her face with a beauty no  cosmetician, however  skillful in the art, could  duplicate. She belongs to  a generation which set  more store in cultivating  that inner beauty which  results from the joy and  serenity of Faith in God  than in trying to gild the  lily.  ***  I wrote a couple of  weeks ago about the  need for someone, or  rather some group, to  break the inflation spiral  which feeds on exaggerated expectations,  and seems to be so built-  in to our society that we  can't break out. I had  taken the teachers to  task, suggesting that as  professionals who are  adequately compensated  maybe they could set an  example, rather than  fuelling the expectations  of others for an equally  large salary increase. I  must admit to feelings of  guilt when 1 heard that  the federal cabinet had  the nerve to offer Mr.  Bouey, the Governor of  the Bank of Canada over  nine thousand dollars  salary increase. And just  after the same Mr.  Bouey had appealed to  Canadians to keep their  wage demands reasonable. It's true Mr. Bouey  only got 10%, but when  you're already earning  $94,000 it's a sizeable  raise. If Mr. Bouey can't  manage his lifestyle on  $94,000, maybe he  shouldn't be Governor  of anything, least of all  the Bank of Canada.  Bank of Canada.  However a teacher  who had found my comments thought provoking told me he is considering making some  changes in his life style,  supposing the School  Board agrees. He'd like  to teach from Monday to  Thursday, and for his  wife, also a teacher to  take over his classes on  Friday. They would in  fact switch roles, thus  making both lives more  fulfilling, while taking a  lot of pressure off the  major breadwinner. It  would in this case mean a  small drop in income and  thus a saving to the taxpayer, though this might  not always be the case  with two part time  salaries. It's obviously  not going to be an  answer to the original  problem, but it may have  advantages for the  children who will have  the benefit of a fresh and  enthusiastic teacher at  the end of the week, as  well as two different  perspectives on life and  learning.  And did you hear of  what happened at 100  Mile House? Following  the decision of the  ��� workers at the sawmill  that, rather lhan have  the mill close down they  take a 19% cut in wages,  go back to where they  were before they won a  new contract last summer. The town rallied to  their support. The  bakery cut back the price  of bread and buns to last  summer's prices. The  hardware store decided  to run specials every two  weeks at wholesale  prices. When the supplier heard what was going on he offered a  special deal on painl  which was also passed on  to the customer.  With  men laid off from other  jobs and with time on  their hands, maybe the  paint will be useful for  maintenance chores.  Now, obviously this is  a stop gap situation and  nol in itself a solution. If  they can't sell the lumber  there will be a limit to  how long the sawmill can  keep working, even if  everyone works for free.  But it was heartening to  hear of 100 Mile House  on the radio, their enthusiasm and determination, the change from a  depressing situation to  one of high morale as  they made plans to help  each other.  And this week the  same thing has happened  in Vanderhoof where the  workers have taken a  10% cut in order to keep  their jobs at least over  the holidays. Again the  community is rallying to  help with even the Credit  Union offering savings  to workers and those in  need on their loans and  mortgages.  A Merry Christmas to  all and especially to the  communities of 100 Mile  House and Vanderhoof.  We know you'll have a  festive season because  the Spirit of Christmas  thrives in the condition!  you are creating.  Christmas  in Hawaii!  &&>'-  Old Simla 's had a merry chase  In Hack us down each year,  'tween logging camps. Pacific Isle's,  or a Mexicali pier.  Dili he always seems to find us,  no mailer where we hide,  and he sniffs our Christmas stockings  lo ihe brim, at each Yulelide!  This year we'll spend our holiday  on ihe Island of Maui,  and we hope he'll stop and resl awhile  III ihe shade of our banyan tree.  Hut old Santa and his reindeer leant  will miss ihe loggers feed  ihey enjoyed with us al Clowholin Camp,  washed down wiih Wakefield mead!  This year they 'II have to settle  for papaya, pot and rum,  then relax awhile wiih Auntie Emma  and her ukulele's slrum.  We'll do our best lo make his stay  as short as a loggers meal,  then hope ihai Rudolph guides his leant  'round the local sniff-mobile!  And while we're al il, friends and readers  of ihe old Sunshine Coast News,  please keep in mind YOUR BA T-mobile  when you 're taking on the booze!  Then when you gather 'round the hearth  lo raise Ihat cup of cheer,  share a Christmas toast wilh Lucy and Carl  as we wish for a Greal New Year!  ��� Carl Chrismas  \~  [Slings & Arrows]  [George Matthews!  The following comments are directed to  Grinches and Scrooges  everywhere who suspect,  as I do, that Christmas  was really invented by  bookkeepers as a method  of clearing inventory  before the end of the  fiscal year. In the face of  maudlin sentiment and  malignant merrymaking, our tiny voices  should be heard muttering "Humbug".  While most people  wander aboul during the  Christmas season offering compliments of the  season and so on, my  custom is to spend the  time clearing out my  desk so I can start fresh  on the first of the new  year. It's a pleasant  custom for a number of  reasons. First, I can pretend to be busy when  people stop by to chat.  Chatting is a dreadful  Christmas pastime during which people who  would not normally say  hello to you in the street  will pull up a chair and  spend hours rambling on  about what they've been  doing all year.  The second benefit of  Christmas desk clearing  is the useful opportunity  it provides to review the  year. It's something like  those end of year news  specials that go back  over the year's major  news stories to remind us  how nice it is to have survived such a terrible  year.  While clearing my  desk, I stumble across all  Ihe lillle bits and pieces  of things that had lo be  done "immediately" or  "urgently" or "ASAP"  last April or in mid-  August, but somehow  became lost in lhe shuffle. It is a great lesson lo  begin a new year wilh, to  know that 90% of whal  has lo be done urgently is  usually quite trivial. I  recall the slory about  Napoleon Bonaparle  who told his secretary lo  keep all urgent letters  unopened for at least  three weeks, by which  time all but the one or  two most important  items would have  become irrelevant.  My desk fills up in a  particular order.  January's vital messages  are scattered around the  desk top. February's are  in the bottom of the lop  right hand drawer;  March occupies the upper layers of the same  drawer. April gets the  lower regions of the second drawer and so on  all the way around lo the  upper regions of the  lower left where things  that absolutely cannot  wait in December are  carefully hidden.  In clearing out the  desk, it is of course important to unload Ihe  drawers in reverse order,  so that January's urgent!  reminders are on lop andi  December's        vilalj  messages are on the bol-I  torn. Al lhe lime of IhisJ  writing, 1 am down lo'  lhe third week in April  and of all the things that  absolutely   had   to   be  done   during   the   firsf  Ihree and a half months'  of 1981, the only thing \  have lefl is a memo lo rej  mind me io pick up mj  laundry   at   the   drj  cleaners. I hope they're  open nexl week.  Everything else front  that slack of criticat  missives is in lhe bollontt  of a large, green plastic  garbage bag and will be;  trucked to the dump pi  soon as I get through th ;  rest of the year's impoi;  tant documents. Outwent the message lo pick  up my daughter from the  dentist. I saw her jusl lhe";  oilier day, I think, so I";  guess il wasn't that im->  porlanl a message. Wilh>  il went Ihe message lo'j  phone my lawyer "im-l  mediately". I haven'lS  had a bill from him, so'J  that was probably less*  important than hei  thought. Then, ofj  course, Ihere were Ihej  three parking tickets.2  Since I have not been?  pursued by lhe police, li!  can only assume these,*  tickels were of less thanj  top priority. :  The letter from I hei  taxation office re-j  questing copies of all myj  cancelled cheques from;  1978, 1979 and 1980 was;  probably a fairly impor-j  lant item, bul since allj  my cheques wenl inloj  last year's green garbage*  bag there wasn't much U  could do about it. Maybe'  Ihat's why my lawyer?  was 'phoning. ��  While reviewing myj  year's important!  reminders is a useful ex��  ercise and ii keeps away.  the Christmas glad;  banders, I dread review*,  ing my summer memosft  Things lhal absolutely  have to be done in winiet.'  or spring are doubly imV  portant in June, July and*"  urgency   !&������  messages"-.  some strange reason, i  particular  summer  memos and missives;-  things like "call before'  noon, I'm going to be on  holiday for the next three,-  weeks" or "pick up the"  results of your blood test'  by 2:00 p.m., the office;  will be closed for two!  weeks". ill  I know those vital;  reminders are someri  where in this stack of:  things that were once;  absolutely necessary and;  I know too that my in��:  clination to procrastinatlj'  is particularly acute id;  those summer months'.j'.

Joan Gallup,  Wilson Creek  Dog tired  Editor:  I have just finished  reading Dory Anne  Robertson's letter in the  Coasl News, and can  sympathize with her  plight regarding dogs  running amok in her  garden.  However my problem  is that of dogs barking;  and thus I address this  letter to those residents  who allow their dogs to  bark whenever and for  however long they  choose.  I am personally sick  and tired of the inconsiderate dog owners who  allow their pets to  disturb my day's peace  and my night's sleep.  Countless nights have  been interrupted by in  cessant barking despite  attempts on my part to  conteract the noise.  Keeping the windows  closed is stifling.  Earplugs are uncomfortable. Talking to the dog  owners is to no avail.  Although our problems differ, I agree with  Anne that the fault lies  not with the dogs, but  with the owners. So  many people choose to  be dog owners, but in  name only, exercising little or'no control, training or interest."'  I appeal to them now  that a few concessions  are in order, and would  be truly appreciated.  Nancy Hendry  R.R.01  Gibsons, B.C.

Tyee Airlines in Porpoise Bay has expressed  concern over lhe serious  hazard to float plane  navigation in ihe area.  Sunshine Heights and  Tuwanek raiepayers arc  also objecting to the  debris which is a hazard  to small boals and is  clogging beaches and lhe  Sechell Marsh area. Logging debris is also  destructive to ihe salmon  enhancement program In  the inlet.  A presenlalion by Bill  Tymchuk, forestry con-  sullani, on behalf of  Doyle Logging indicated  ihai loggers in lhe inlet  are anxious to correct lhe  problem and 10 con-  Iribuie lime and equipment lo remove lhe  debris. "j  Tymchuk staled thai  Doyle Logging has been  refused a foreshore lease  permit al Carlson Point  in Sechell Inlet for use as  a log dump and booming  ground sile. They also  face possible charges  from Fisheries officials  for depositing a  deleirious substance in  the Halfmoon Bay area  where logs sluck in lhe  mud flats created a mess  and noise from boom  boals upsci residents in  lhe area.  He stated Ihat ihe  large amount of debris in  Sechell Inlci has been  caused by mud slides,  high lides and winds, extensive culling by  helicopter loggers and on  lhe Hydro righi-of-way  for I he Chcckye-  Dunsmuir line and large  logging companies such  as Weldwood.  There are 21 active log  dumps in Ihe inlet and of  12 skidder dumps, 10 of  ihem arc unauthorized,  "The problem is lhal  ihe Lands Branch and  Forestry do nol police iis  foreshore lease applications, and allow trespass  which creates problenis,  Loggers would like lo sec  leases properly enforced  because illegal loggers  give everyone a had  name."  Tymchuk said Doyle  Logging contributes only  1% to lhe total debris  problem in ihe Inlel  which supporls a $24  million logging induslry  and employs 450 men.  Oskar Friesen show  photographs ^o bffard  members of debris clogging a small park and  launching ramp al Sandy  Hook slating thai "loggers should be made to  clean up their act  wherever ihey arc".  "We do not wain to be  a vigilante or policing  committee, we wain lo  ask the board's suppori  in pulling pressure on  Lands Branch and  Forestry through MLAs,  MPs and lhe Ministers  Ihemselves lo resolve ihe  problem we are finding  on our doorsteps.  The board agreed to  write Lands Branch and  Forcsiry and to request  immediate clean up and  enforcing of regulations  ihai are already in effecl.  A meeling wiih Barry  Custance from Foreslry  and with Sechell village  was sel for January llih  to decide on lhe method  of clean up lo be used.

As a  life-long investigator of  English usage, one is impelled to comment on ihe  changing nalure of these  commonly used words.  Cool means literally at  a fairly low temperature;  restrained, relaxed; lacking in cordiality, A few  years ago we miglil have  referred lo a "cool thousand dollars", meaning  not less lhan one thousand dollars. Now it  means excellent; basically and entirely satisfying.  Thus when a student  read that, on his return  from his second voyage,  Queen Isabella of Spain  gave Christopher Columbus a really "cool"  reception, he was convinced she rolled oul lhe  red carpet and shoi off at  least a 21 gun salute! So  a wish for a Cool  Christmas is a modern  way of saying what has  always been said: Merry  Christmas!  What about a Neat  Christmas? My father  always drank his  Christmas whisky  "neat", undiluted. We  used to be urged to do  "neat" work. "Neat"  handwriting had to  display elegant simplicity, be readable and clear.  Neat arrangements were  uncluttered and logical.  The word has changed to  mean almost the same as  "cool"...excellent;  basically and entirely  satisfying.  We arrive at the Fantastic Christmas. The  dictionary would have us  believe that fantastic  means extravagantly fanciful, capricious, eecen-  Iric, grolesque or quainl  in design. We used io  sing..."trip ihe light fantastic on the sidewalks of  New York", but fantastic does not really  relate to disco dancing,  even at Christmas. It,  too, has come to mean  excellent; extraordinary,  but basically and entirely  satisfying!  Merry is the (radi-  lional adjective io be  coupled with Christmas,  li means joyous, full of  laugluer and gaiely.  (Now-a-days we have to  watch the word "gay"..)  The older generation  may remember "merry"  being used for "sliglilly  tipsy", but that meaning'  lias almost died out, "To  make merry" slill implies festivitiy; "to play  merry hell" slill gives  one a picture of  something being messed  up thai previously was  running smoothly. Few  will recall that a "merry  thought" was once a  synonym for lhe  wishbone of lhe goose or  lurkey.  Happy is usually the  New Year's wish. It  means lucky, fortunate,  content with one's lot. It  also implies some degree  of alcoholism, such as  the "Happy Hour",  which is set up to make  the participants "happy-  go-lucky". The Happy  Land is synonymous for  Heaven, as in "There is a  happy land/Far, far  away/Where saints in  glory stand/ Bright,  bright as day." The  Native Indians lalked of  that same place as the  Happy Hunting Ground,  a more active prospect  than the more passive  and musical one depicted  in Ihe hymn, but still  happy.  "Happy pills" or tranquillizers strikes a rather  ominous note, and it is*  no   compliment   10   be  / hove, Harry Smith of Hull" inkle (.lass Works  1 isenibles u window of his own bevelled glass, a  I gh stale of Ihe arl of stained glass.

Even in biblical days  the world was in need of  merriment. Ecclesiastes 8  reads: "then I commend  mirth, because a man  hath no better thing  under the sun than to  eat, than to drink, and  be merry", although  Corinthians strikes a  more somber note: "Eat  and drink; for tomorrow  we die". O. Henry, the  American writer,  paraphrased this to:  "Eat, drink and be  leary".  Legal Fees  Dorothy Parker once  wrote: "Drink and  dance, laugh and lie/  Love the reeling midnight through,/ For  tomorrow we shall die,/  But alas, we never do".  There was a girl who  knew what a real  hangover was.  Perhaps "Merry" and  "Happy" are worn oul  words, over-used and  due for retirement. This  year we could all start a  new custom. We could  say: 1 wish you a Real  Cool Christmas and a  Neat New Year! A Fantastic Idea! Tell your  friends, who may accuse  you of being either  Merry or Happy or both,  that you saw it first in  the Coasl News.  Legal Notes  by J. Wayne Rowe  Re: Legal Fees  In my last two columns I attempted to shed  some light on the manner  in which legal fees are  normally determined. I  indicated that in many  instances the exact fee  cannot be ascertained in  advance, but that the  method for calculating  the fee can be agreed  upon.  Assuming that that  has been done, you may  then wonder if there is  any recourse available to  you in the event that the  final bill surpasses even  your wildest expectations.  Certainly the first  thing that you should do  is to discuss the bill with  your lawyer. As I have  tried to emphasize  throughout, there is no  substitute for open communication between a  lawyer and client.  If as a result of this  discussion, you are still  of the view that the bill is  excessive, then you  should consider contacting the Law Society in  Vancouver. This should  be done in writing, setting out fully the details  of the problem from  your perspective.  An informal inquiry  will then be made by a  member of the society to  determine whether your  complaint is justified.  The Law Society does  not have the power to  make a change in the  bill, but it can exercise a  certain persuasion if the  bill is grossly excessive.  If at this point you are  still not satisfied, the only avenue open to you is  to apply to the Registrar  of the Supreme Court in  Vancouver to tax the  bill. The Registrar exercises some functions  similar to that of a  judge. One of these func-  tions is to review  lawyers' bills. As a result  he has a good appreciation of what constitutes a  reasonable fee in a given  situation.  There are two points  to bear in mind if you  come to this stage in the  matter. Firstly, unless  there are some special  circumstances, you cannot apply for taxation of  the bill after the expiration of 12 months from  the date it was sent.  Secondly, if after the  taxation, the bill is  reduced by less than 1/6  of its original amount,  then you will be liable  for the costs of the taxation hearing.  If the results of the  taxation were unsatisfactory, then an appeal  could be made . to the  Supreme Court. How^  ever, this step should only be taken after very  careful consideration as  the Court is inclined to  accept the Registrar's  decision in Ihese matter,  these matters.  When one consider:  the time and expense in  volved in the above pro  cedures, it becomes ap  parent as to why thes<  matters should be frank  ly discussed at the outse  of the engagement.

Robert Cray, reduced lo  a rhythm guitarist in this  new context, returns to  the stage with a different  drummer and bass-  player. They lope  through a Fais Wallerish  opener with the drummer on vocals. Then  Buddy Ciuy joins lhe  group.

Finally, Junior Wells  himself struts from the  wings and arranges his  various harps on the  piano-lop. From piclures  on album covers, I had  somehow assumed he  was a Kill man. Quile the  contrary, In a dark  3-piece suil and cap, he  resembles nolhing so  much as a black James  Cagney, The similarity  extends beyond superficial resemblance���his  stage presence and  energy are also  Cagneyesque.

(1  remember this tune well  from my early exposure  lo Wells and it has lost  none of ils gritty power.)  li is followed by a  maniacally up-tempo  version of another Wells  classic, Messing Wilh Ihe  Kid. Wells and Co. are  off and roaring.  For over an hour, they  lambaste us with a  veritable onslaught of  relentless, give-no-  quarter blues. Between  vocal choruses, as Guy  lakes off on another  banshee-wailing solo,  Junior bops and boogies  like a funky mime;  trucks over to josh with  Robert Cray; selects a  harmonica from his  piano-top stash; spins  back to the mike to fire  off another mad salvo of  whooping blues, the  harp, a natural extension  of his voice.  The crowd goes ape.  The young, aspiring harpist we had noticed in the  line-up, writhes before  the bandstand in ecsta  sies past human understanding, as his ever-vigilant girlfriend attempts  to calm him. A spaced-  out girl acatually scales  the stage and attempts lo  touch or kiss Wells. Lost  in the strident complexities of his art, he scarcely seems to notice her. A  muscular roadie  materializes from the  wings and gently leads  her away.  The second set is as  volcanic as the firsl.  There appears now, io he  some sort of tension between Wells and Guy bin  (like Sonny Terry and  Brownie Ghee, those  famous enemies) they  don'l let it interfere wiih  ihe music. Towards the  end, Wells calls Cray's  sidemen onstage and  jams with the while  harp-player. They pay  homage to Muddy  Waters with a long, wild  version of, Got My Mojo  Working. From  somewhere in lhe estalic  audience the apprentice  harpist wails a small  homage of his own. Suddenly; almost startingly,  it is over.  Toially bluesed-oul,  my lady and I make for  the exit. The masters  have demonstrated their  mastery. The Emperors  or the South Side live! Il  has been overkill!

Christmases  remembered  The Gibsons Klrmenlary School Concert production last week displayed fine  dramatic ability.  ���IrarParnrllPhtilo  Cedar Grove production  enjoyed  by Maryanne West  Full house audiences  enjoyed the four performances of Cedar Grove  Elementary School's  Christmas production of  the musical Joseph and  Ms Amazing Teehnieo-  lour Dreamcoat last  week.  ' An ambitious project  for children with little  experience in acting or  Singing and a lot of hard  Work during the term  paid off in a first rate  performance, with  Children from kindergarten, whose Christmas  recitation served as a  curtain raiser, right  through to Grade 7 participating. Principal Colleen Elson is enthusiastic  about the value of such a  school project, which  has brought children and  teachers together with a  single purpose, improving language skills, providing opportunities for  many creative skills and  an understanding of the  discipline and cooperation necessary for  choral singing and  musical accompaniment,  and the importance of  concentration making  sure you are right on the  beat for your cue. The  weeks of practise and  dedication of both  teachers and children  showed in the most suc  cessful presentation of a  story which proceeded  with hardly a missed beat  even on the first night.  A story in which  almost all the characters are male is a .  concentration, making  and it's a tribute to the  quality of morale at  Cedar Grove that almost  all these parts were  played by boys, who  traditionally tend to  think of singing, let  alone solo parts as sissie,  but the cast performed  manfully, with obvious  commitment to their  roles, in particular young  Chris Dorais who carried  the exacting role of  Joseph with sensitivity,  understanding and confidence. I was impressed  too with the choir, led by  Pat Slory which had the  responsibility for most  of the narrative in the 45  minute performance and  who were word perfect,  not missing a beat of the  not so simple harmonies,  even the first graders.  Mention must also be  made of Glen Skidmore,  who willingly gives not  only of his expertise but  long hours to set up and  operate a complex  lighting system which  adds so much to the professionalism of such performances. Glen is greatly appreciated by staff  and students in several  elementary schools, (just  walking in and asking if  he can help) and who  now rely on his expertise.  While the story of  Joseph may seem a little  different from the usual  Christmas fare, its also a  story with a message and  one which isn't as  familiar as the Nativity.  It's a story too, of love  and forgiveness and  reconciliation, but  perhaps most pertinent  at this time is the  reminder that periods of  plenty have been followed, since time immemorial by periods of  famine and that Joseph's  advice to the Egyptian  Pharoah, whether the  good and bad years are  the result of natural  causes or our boom and  bust economies, to save  during the good years so  that no one suffers during the lean years is still  the way to go.

Malhleaon  i19.��5  NDP education  spokesman Gary Lauk  (MLA - Vancouver Cenlre) recently described  Education Minister  Brian Smith as the  weakest education  minister since 1871 after  his failure to protect property taxpayers from the  effects of rapidly rising  property assessments.  "We are advised that  assessments will increase  around 20 percent. In  that context the changes  in the Education Finance  Formula announced today will slice another  three percent off the provincial share of education costs and put it onto  the backs of the  homeowner.  "Smith promised  relief to the homeowner.  Clearly he has not  delivered," said Lauk.  The ministry of education today announced  that the basic mill rate  for school purposes  would drop from 41.8  mills to 41.2. The cost of  the basic education pro  gram is $1,317,600,000,  up 17.3 percent over  1981.  "The cut in the mill  rate and the Finance  Minister's reduction in  the proportion of assessed values are insufficient  to protect homeowners  against rocketing property taxes.  "The Socreds are running the property tax  shell game again, and the  homeowners will be  picking up the tab in  1982.  "I expect the provincial contribution to  school board operating  budgets will hit an all-  time low of 30 percent in  1982. Last year I  predicted that if the  Socreds were not  defeated, homeowners  would be paying all the  school bill by 1994. 1  reget to say that I was  wrong. Al this rate it will  be 1989 when they pay  nothing at all to local  school costs," Lauk concluded.  by Joy Graham  Thoughts naturally  turn to "home" during  the Christmas season.  Past Christmases parade  through our minds,  reminding us of precious  people and events. We  remember the Christmases we had as children, often in a different  country, a different province of town.  For most people, there  is a homesickness associated with Christmas.  Recently, an older  Canadian-born grandfather surprised me when  he said that when he  thinks of Christmas, he  thinks of England���the  birth-place of his  parents, with nostalgia  and longing.  I thought that it was  the immigrant alone who  suffered this peculiar  kind of pain at Christmas time. It is not that  this grandfather, or we  immigrants wish to  return to our past. We're  glad to be here, anxious  to fit in, and yes, "O!  Canada" brings a lump  to the throat. Rather, at  this season, more than  any other time during the  year, we are aware of  bridges crossed, of the  generations of tradition  which we have broken,  of the feeling of being  swallowed up by another  culture which seems difficult to entirely embrace, when we are being  pulled���emotionally-  back to the "homeland".  The mail brings  greetings. Some days  many letters come, making the separation - the  distances, even greater.  To be transported by the  magic of a hand-written  letter from an aunt, who  has the exact script-style  of my late father, brings  a confusion of joy and  sorrow.  It reminds me of  browm Christmases in  Australia; of 'Boxing  Days at the beach; of  hoping to be given the  piece of plum pudding  containing the threepence or sixpence, and  not the piece with the  button similarly hidden.  I can picture the  streamers festooning the  dining room, the fold-up  snowman with the carrot  nose, who grew dustier,  but more precious each  year.  No doubt the  snowman, amazing to  me as a child with his  accordian-pleated body,  has long been discarded.  But the old farm-house  of my childhood is still  there, and so are all my  relatives. I wonder if my  nieces and nephews gaze  with disbelief at the cool,  snowy scenes depicted on  the cards sent at  Christmas time. And do  they realize that for  many of their ancestors,  Christmas was white?  At the Gibsons  Elementary School concert, the choir sang  Canada's only original  Christmas carol.  "The  Huron Carol". Il  reminded me of the  many Australian carols;  lyrics which recall red  dust and heat, drovers,  black swans and dancing  brolga birds; of the  Christmas Bush - a  brilliant yellow accacia  which blooms in  December, and of Rolf  Harris' "Six White  Boomers"., (kangaroos).  Here in Canada, mini-  ethnic festivals demonstrate with displays of  arts and crafts, food,  costumes and song, the  old traditions from many  countries which make up  Canada's rich, multi-  Canada's rich, multicultural heritage. Some  of the students al  Elphinstone recently  went on a field trip to the  French Cultural Centre  in Vancouver, to learn  about French-Canadian  Christmas traditions, as  well as those of France.  Such exposure must help  create a sense of "world-  family" at Christmas  time, and this is good.  It is not strange then,  that at this time of the  year, I hear voices, and  read words, which urge  me to "come home".  During the past fifteen  years in Canada, I have  returned "home". Like  many expatriates, I suffered a culture shock  during my holidays  "down under". Gone  were remembered landmarks; old friends had  died, families were  broken up, bush roads  had become roaring  highways.  Yes, I've had a  Christmas there too,  with my Canadian  children. It was 42  degrees celcius, I was too  hot to move, and the  flies...! Suddenly I  found I was more Cana-  dianized, than before.  The accent of my past  grated.  ..'.Catherine Parr Traill,  in' Backwoods of  Canada, a collection of  letters home to England,  written in 1832, told of  both nostalgia for  England and pride in her  adopted       country.

We are all of us  immigrants of one sort  or another. What this  pioneer bush settler  wrote one hundred and  fifty years ago, is still  relevant to those of us  who long for "home"  this Christmas.  This year as Christmas  rapidly approaches, I  will endeavour to combine the best of  Christmases past, with  the present, and 10 project a sense of "home"  and the security it offers,  albeit strangely mixed  wilh dust and snow.

Hydro's safely  engineering.  He singled oul artificial metallic type trees  as being of special concern. "These trees are  good conductors of electricity and should not be  decorated wiih Christmas iree lights under any  circumstances because of  the electrical hazard," he  said.  Depiford pointed oul  lhal people should not  assume an artificial tree  is safe from fire. "Some  of the popular reusable  plastic irees are flammable. Enquire aboul  this point before  buying," he said.  When selecting a  natural Christmas tree  buy a pine or Douglas fir  in preference to spruce.  "Both will hold their  needles longer, and present less of a fire hazard.  Try to find a tree thai  has been freshly cut," he  said.  Before decorating,  check out the Christmas  tree lights, said Dept-  ford. "Each string of  lights, new or old,  should be examined for  broken or cracked  sockets, frayed or bare  wires or loose connections. Discard damaged  sets or repair them."  When preparing a  natural iree and stand,  saw an inch or iwo off  lhe tree's bun using a  diagonal cut, This exposes a larger surface to  moisture than with a  straight cut.  "Stand the tree in  waler. Commercial  holders are available, or  you can use a large can  or pail filled wiih sand or  waler," said Deptfort.  The water should be  replenished regularly.  Some trees will absorb  about 0.5 litres a day,  said Deptford.  Trees should be kept  away from heating vents  or radiators.  "And to be on the safe  side, turn off lights when  you retire for the night,  or any time the tree is left  unattended," he said.  Hooked on books  Many more Canadians  than Americans are do-  it-yourself folks and  hobbyists. A sociologist  studying this  phenomenon has found  that many more Canadians than Americans  have basements, and  own tools.  He attributes  this to our northern  winters, long and dark,  and the fact that to avoid  boredom, people turn to  crafts and hobbies.  If art is your recreational pastime, a visit to  the Sechelt Library will  reward you. There is a  splendid selection of  large, fully illustrated  books on all the masters,  on most styles of art. All  of them may be borrowed.  There are histories of  art, the most recent by  Janson, and volumes on  "How to..." do almost  every known oraft.  Lapidarists will enjoy  Sinan Ras' "Gem Cutting".  If you have just acquired a big basement  and don't know what to  do with it, visit the little  library just up from the  Shell Station on Tuesday  or Thursday, from 10:30  to 1:00, or Saturday  from 1:30 to 4:00. If the  book you want is out,  leave your name, and it  will be reserved when it  comes back. Once you  try this service you will  be "hooked on books".  Christmas  and  Happy New Year  to Everyone!

Gibsons council decided in November ihat if  Municipal Affairs will  nol approve the$750,000  loan required for the en-  lire bluff sewer project, a  request will be made to  obtain financing lo service lots on one side of  the bluff, only.  The area serviced will  be on the north side of  the bluff, where a 10"  sewer line will extend  2,200 feet, from the  pumping station at the  boat launch in Gibsons  bay, as far as Trevor  Goddard's property. It  will replace the presenl  8" line, which extends to  the bottom of the bluff  along the waterfront.  Council indicated that  the existing line has nol  been placed al ihe proper  depth and will be removed.  Lines  from homes  will feed into the walerfronl sewer line at the  base of the bluff and will  service 25 lots, at an installation cost of  $175,000.  Another line recommended by Gibsons  village engineers, Dayton  and Knight, is a 6" line  connecting the north end  of Skyline Drive to the  existing sewer line on  Bay Road. It would provide sewer service to  another 11 lots, at an additional cost of $50,000.  Council decided to apply for a loan authorization for $250,000, to be  included in next year's  budget. This stage of  sewer installation is the  least expensive and will  provide service to 36  lots, almost half of the  total 84 lots on the bluff.  The south side of the  Gibsons bluff is the most  expensive to service,  because of extensive  blasting through rock  that is necessary. Council decided ii would be  delayed and included in  Ihe five year capital  works plan.  Gibsons council has  approved the expenditure of $5,000 for "an  engineering overview"  of the sewage plant  facility located on  Slewart Road in Gibsons.  During the summer,  complaints of odors in  Ihe sewage plant area  were made by local  residents and Ihere seemed lo be a problem with  sufficient aeralion of Ihe  effluent. Several alternatives were discussed  with Dayton and Knight,  the engineering firm who  designed the sewage  plant, built in 1973.  Dayton and Knight  also designed the  Regional District sewage  treatment plant serving  Sechelt village in 1979.  Besides unpleasant  odors in Ihe sewage plant  area, a recently completed "Howe Sound  Shellfish Growing Water  Quality Survey" indicates that Ihe effluent  from Gibsons sewer outfall into Georgia Strait is  nol al environmentally-  acceptable levels.  Columbia treaty a folly  by Dave Barrett  Professor Ralph Loff-  mark is a highly  respected expert in  business law and  economics at the University of B.C. He also was  a cabinet minister in the  W.A.C. Bennett administration when it was  involved in the Columbia  River Treaty negotiations.  That's why his speech  at the Vancouver Rotary  Club recently analyzing  the aftermath of the treaty as a disaster for B.C.  is a very significant  event.  His research has  shown that the $425  million payment to B.C.  for half the downstream  power benefits created  by the three treaty dams  built at Duncan, Arrow  and Mica Creek was  enormously underpriced.  In fact, the folly of selling our wealth���the land  and water of British Columbia���for   someone  AUTOPLAN  NOTARY PUBLIC  10 Svmmt kqmem Lid.  Plan to Review Before you Renew  Get your Autoplan set up early!  Your insurance expires the  last day of your decal month  There are some excellent  options available  Arne TveitPetlersen  F.R.I . R.I. (B.C.)  Notary Public  Let us explain them to you  886-2000  Seaside Plaza, Gibsons  else's use is illustrated  graphically by the Columbia River treaty.  Power generation on  the U.S. side of the Columbia has increased by  9.7 million kilowatts  since the treaty dams  were built. Under the  treaty, half of that  belongs to the U.S. and  half to B.C. But instead  of taking the electricity,  we sold our half���4.8  million kilowatts���for 30  years when we accepted  the $425 million.  Compare that with the  $9 billion price B.C.  Hydro calculates we will  need by 1990 for three  projects which will produce 3.3 million  kilowatts, much less than  the downstream benefits  electricity we gave the  the Americans for $425  million.  If interest rates werelo  drop to only 10%, the  annual interest alone on  the $9 billion will cost us'  twice as much in a single  year as we sold our trealy  benefits for ali of 30  years!  But it will cost us  much more than jusl $ 9  billion for the new power  to replace the benefits we  sold because the three  planned projects are  dams at Site C on Ihe  Peace River and Murphy  Creek on the Columbia  and a thermal plant at  the   Hat   Creek   coal  deposit.  And those projects  will cost this province the  loss forever of large  tracts of prime valley  farm lands, environmental damage and acid  rain���in addition to $9  billion.  Under the 60-year Columbia treaty, our half of  the downstream power  benefits can be recaptured as electricity fed into the B.C. grid if  10-years notice is given  before the midway point.  Such a long lead time  was built into the treaty  because it will cost the  U.S. a great deal of time  and money to replace  our share of the  downstream benefits.  It won't be easy to  negotiate re-capture of  the electricity but it is absolutely essential if we  are to avoid the $9  billion expenditure in  this decade.  The clock is ticking  towards expiry of the recapture notice deadline  and we must begin  negotiating the return of  our power now or time  will run out.  And the first step  towards re-negotiation  has to be the same admission Professor Loff-  mark had the courage to  make���British Columbia's best interests were  literally sold down the  river in 1963.  Power line  hazard  The hazard created by  power lines downed in  windstorms is greatly increased when people try  to move the lines  themselves instead of  allowing B.C. Hydro  linemen to handle the  problem.  Dpring recent storms,  B.C. Hydro crews appreciated information  from the public about  downed or damaged  power lines but were  concerned when some  people attempted to free  branches from the lines  or move downed wires.  In one incident a man actually coiled a fallen  wire.  "The public can't tell  if the wire is a high-  voltage line or not and  electrocution can occur  even if a branch hanging  on a power line is touched," says Art Deptford,  B.C. Hydro's manager  of safety engineering.  Anyone seeing a  downed line should warn  others to stay clear and  call B.C. Hydro immediately.  In addition to the problems caused by storms,  amateur woodsmen in  B.C. are creating a  serious hazard when they  fall trees near power  lines.  Sunday loggers are  usually taking down unwanted trees on their  own property, and either  fail to consider the proximity of power lines or  feel competent to do the  job safely.  B.C. Hydro will provide professional  assistance to anyone  wishing to fall a tree near  a power line���normally  at no charge.  "For their own safety,  we ask people not to take  down trees around  power lines by  themselves," advises  Deptford.  - If an owner wishes to  take down a healthy tree  near a power line, B.C.  Hydro will provide a  lineman to stand by if  reasonable notice is  given. There will be no  charge during normal  working hours, but a  charge will be made if  this service is required  outside regular hours.  - If a tree is felled  through a power line  with no lineman standing  by, full cost of repairs  will be charged.  - Disposal of felled  trees is the responsibility  of owners.  The policies apply to  trees near the wires between B.C. Hydro's poles  and a customer's house  as well as to the lines on  roads, streets and lanes.

Today,  almost 40 years later, she  sils with her mother,  Muriel, in the small living room of Iheir Gower  Point Road home in Gibsons, and it is Nancy  who tells stories of her  travels around the world.  Muriel is now 80 and  the living room is filled  with trunks and packing  boxes, many containing  albums, scrapbooks and  photographs. She and  Nancy are leaving for  New Zealand next week,  closing the door gently  behind them on 10 years  of Nancy's ministry as  pastor of Glad Tidings  Tabernacle in Gibsons.  Growing up in  Tauranga, on North  Island's east cost 140  miles south of Aukland.  Nancy and her twd  sisters thrived on the lusl  farmland by the sea  where oranges could be  picked from the trees. A  keen horsewoman, winning many ribbons in her  youth, Nancy's true love  was to minister to other  human beings and she  very early devoted her  life to her calling.  "I didn't even know  what a Pentecostal was, 1  was a Protestant,"  recalls Muriel now. "But  the revival gatherings attracted great interest  when they came to our  area and Nancy became  very enthusiastic".  While still a young  woman in her 20's, Nancy became the first  womah evangelist to  preach throughout New  Zealand. "I was very  well received", smiles  Nancy and it is easy to  see that her warm smile  and sincere friendliness  must have quickly won  over any dubious  believers.  In 1966, Nancy began  her world travels,  associated with the  ministry. First she visited  Australia, then the  Orient on her way to  B.C. where she attended  raclean  Weviy CIdiuChuu  Oast  Ham Km yean  from  Your locally owned  Carpet & Furniture  Cleaners  Rich & Barb laffere���  886-8667  Glad Tidings Temple Bible College in Vancouver  while ministering in Ab-  botsford. Her sister Lilly, who came with her,  married soon after the  girls arrived in Canada.  After a short stay in the  United States, in 1970,  Nancy returned to New  Zealand for another year  and then came to Gibsons in 1971, to take over  the Glad Tidings Tabernacle ministry. This time  her mother Muriel came  too, to keep house for  Nancy and to be closer to  her two daughters, leaving another daughter,  Mary, in New Zealand.  "When 1 arrived here  in October of 1971, there  was so much snow on the  ground, I almost left for  home right away,"  remembers Muriel. "It  was a most unusual year  for snow here on the  coast that year and I had  never seen it in New  Zealand, only on the  mountain tops."  However, neither the  snow nor the hard work  that Nancy engaged in  immediately to beautiful  and landscape the church  grounds deterred Muriel,  who was 70 al lhe lime  and is still unbelievably  spry.  The first two years  were spent fixing the  grounds, planting trees  and flower beds and  replacing the church  roof. Over the years have  followed a succession of  children and others  needing a home,  sometimes temporary,  others staying as long as  three years at a time.  In 1978, Nancy's  travelling urge took over  again and she visited  New Zealand and  Australia and took the  first  of three trips to  Cooper's Green  protest  The regional board  received a letter of protest from the Area B  Ratepayers Association  at its meeting held on  December 17th concerning the disposition of  Cooper's Green last  month.  Under the signature of  President J.A. Gill the  letter said:  "The Area B Rale-  payers Association  wishes to register a  strong objection lo lhe  manner in which our  represenlalive's petition  on behalf of the residents  of this area was overridden on the matter of  Cooper's Green rezoning.  "We feel that serious  reconsideration of this  matter and of the  board's decision is due lo  the citizens of Area B."  Board Chairman  Brian Stelck observed  thai all by-laws come  back lo ihe regional  board   for  reconsidera-  and many good wishes for  From' all the Stall at  farmy's famUy  rzGSCaufiant  Israel. In 1979 and 1980,  she again travelled to  Israel and also Greece  and Jordan. In February  of this year she went to  India and ihe Orient,  Hong Kong, Singapore  and Thailand and has  finally decided her time  has come to follow her  early yearnings to  become a modern-day  missionary. Her plans  are leaning towards work  in Africa, India and the  Orient.  When Nancy leaves  nexl week, it will be with  sadness. "It is too hard  to leave after 10 years, I  will never stay in one  place so long again," she  vows. There is no immediate replacement to  take over the Glad  Tidings Tabernacle,  although Rev. Wayne |  Stilling will travel from  Vancouver as a temporary minister.  Her flock in Halfmoon Bay will miss the  summer services by the  water at Cooper's Green.  Her gentle nudges to  help needy people in  other parts of the world,  such as her very successful India Night held  only two weeks ago in  Gibsons, which will be  repeated December 17th  at Halfmoon Bay Hall,  will be missed. The international visitors attracted to Gibsons  through Nancy's contacts from her world  travels will be missed.  The happy music, a combination of Nancy's  talented family, the Glad  Tidings Temple's legacy  and the inspiration of  Maori tradition absorbed from her childhood in  New Zealand, will be  missed.

I'm very pleased to say  our swimmers did us  proud and certainly  handled themselves exceptionally well for their  first meet off the Peninsula. The experience they  received will put them in  good standing for future  meets. It was a first of  many new things for  them, such as the use of  starting blocks and  swimming in a 25 metre  pool with six swimming  lanes.  Yes, they were under  stress and, yes, they had  butterflies in the  stomach and, yes, ma,  they were scared, but it  was a fun-scared because  everyone was scared.  The adrenalin wa> running high.  They conquered it and  swam, swam the best  I've ever seen them  swim. Yes, ma, they can  cope with the stress and  ihe butterflies, meeting  new friends and socializing. In facl every last one  wants to know when are  we going to the next one!  Incidentally, Pender  Harbour Seals brought  home six firsts, ten  seconds, seven thirds,  four fourths, and four  fifths. Not bad for our  first year.  We have an excellent  parents' committee and  they should be congratulated for providing  funds and making the  trip possible. The  coaches, Tina Meyer,  Shirley Vader and Robi  Peters wish to thank the  parents, swimmers and  Larry for such an enjoyable trip.  The swim club will be  starting again January  4th, regular times after  school. Children wishing  to join and become part  of our competitive swim  club should phone  883-2612 for information re prerequisites.  by Ernie Hume  Winter tournament  play is in full swing.

The 21 Japanese girls won a 12-day trip lo B.C. as a prize for coming in  second in all Japan and were billeted Friday nighl by local girls who learned  some Japanese lor Ihe occasion. .v<m rwn n   New band on Coast  On December 15th,  lhe staff and guests of  Ken's Lucky Dollar and  lhe Omega Sleak House  combined to celebrate  Christmas. Over 80 people enjoyed a superb buffet dinner pul on and  served by their hosts,  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Edney  and Mr. and Mrs.  George Giannakos.  After exchanging  gifts, they danced the  night away to the sounds  of the "Close Encounter", a new group  to hit Gibsons. It is made  up of local youths, Gus  Giannakos on drums,  Mike Desrosiers, guitar  and vocalist and Dan  Fortin, guitar and  vocalist. It was a debut  Scholarship  Society  performance for Close  Encounters, who played  a good variety of music  and were much enjoyed  by the entire crowd.  With all the talk of vandalism on the Sunshine  Coast recently, it is certainly refreshing to see  our teenagers channelling their energy in such a  worthwhile (and enjoyable) direction.  Congratulations boys,  and keep up the good  work!  The Donner Canadian  Foundation has approved a grant of $200,000 to  the University of B.C's  Native Indian Teacher  Education Program.  Half of the grant has  already been received by  UBC and the remainder  will go lo NITEP for the  1982-83 academic year.  Prof. Verna Kirkness,  NITEP Supervisor, said  much of Ihe grant will be  used toward program expansion related to the  new NITEP centres in  Prince George and Vancouver East.  The program started  in 1974 and the first  graduates received their  Bachelor of Education  degree during UBC's  spring convocation in  1978. NITEP now has  graduated 38 degree  students, and another 17  are teaching with educational certificates after  completing three years of  the four-year degree program.  Prior to the start of  NITEP, there were only  26 native Indians  teaching in British Columbia, and only three of  the 26 had degrees.  All of the NITEP  students are Native In  dians, either slatus or  non-staius, who will  graduate from the program qualified to teach  in any elementary school  in Ihe province.  "We arc educaling  Native Indians to be fully qualified teachers, at  the request of Indian  parenls and Indian communities," says Prof.  Kirkness. "Our leachers  will have Ihe kind of  preparation needed to  work wiih Native Indian  children or in multicultural situations."  The NITEP sludents  spend iwo years in a field  centre, gaining practical  teaching experience and  taking university-level  courses, and then attend  UBC for the third and  fourih   years   of   their  degree programs.  There are four NITEP  centres this year, in  Prince George, Kamloops, Vancouver Easl  and Nonh Vancouver.  There are 21 sludenls ai  Ihe Prince George Centre, 18 in Vancouver  Easl, 13 in Kamloops  and 12 in Nonh Vancouver. Twenly-eiglu  NITEP sludenls are doing Ihird and fourih year  on campus Ihis year. In  addition, the NITEP  Program is offered on a  part-time basis at Bella  Bella and Williams Lake,  enrolling 13 and 24  sludenls respectively.  UBC President  Douglas Kenny said he  was "delighted indeed"  with the $200,000 Donner   Foundation jjrant.  It's a  matter of time  If you need temporary protection, term insurance is great.

Bul  loo few realize whal He  can mean lo ihem personally, not only ai  Chrislmaslime, bul every  day of the year and on  inlo the fulure. Here are  a few of the many truths  about Jesus Christ, as  given in the Holy Scriptures.  Our Saviour  1. Wahl does lhe name  Jesus mean?  "Thou shall call His  name Jesus: for He shall  save His people from  Iheir sins." Matthew  1:21  2. Whal was God's purpose in sending His Son  to Ihis earth?  "For God so loved the  world, that He gave His  only begotten Son, that  whosoever believelh in  Him should nol perish,  bul have everlasting  life." John 3:16  3. Whal did Christ's  coming make possible  for all who accept Him?  "Bul as many as received  Him, lo them gave He  power io become lhe  sons of God, even lo  Ihem thai believe on His  name." John 1:12  4. Is Ihere any limit lo  His power to save lost,  sinful human beings?  "He is able also to save  them to the uttermost  lhal come unlo God by  Him." Hebrews 7:25  Our Example:  5. Whal kind of life did  Jesus live on earlh?  "Jesus...wenl aboul doing good, and healing all  lhal were oppressed of  lhe devil; for God was  with Him." Acts 10:38  6. From what was His  life entirely free?  "Who did no sin, neither  was guile found in His  mouth." I Peter 22.  7. In view of his perfecl,  unselfish life and His  ministry to others, whal  should we lei Him be lo  us?  "Christ also suffered for  us, leaving us an example,   ihai   ye   should  follow His steps."  I  Peier 2:21  Our Coming King:  8. Will we one day personally meel Jesus?  "So Chrisl was once offered io bear ihe sins of  many; and unlo Ihem  lhal look for Him shall  He appear the second  time wilhoul sin unto  salvation." Hebrews  9:28  9. What will be the manner of His return?  "This same Jesus, which  is laken up from you into  heaven, shall so come in  like manner as ye have  seen Him go inlo  heaven." Acls 1:11  10. How many people  will be eyewiinesses of  this glorious event?  "Behond, He comet h  with clouds; and every  eye shall see Him, and  they also which pierced  Him." Revelalion 1:7  11. Saved forever, where  will we spend elernily?  "Then we which are  alive and remain shall be  caughl up logelher wilh  ihem in ihe clouds, to  meet lhe Lord in lhe air:  and so shall we ever be  with the Lord." 1  Thessaloiiians 4:17  "In my Father's house  are many mansions...I  go io prepare a place for  you and if I go and  prepare a place for you, I  will come again, and  receive you unlo myself;  lhal where I am, Ihere ye  may be also." John  14:2,3.  "Behold" He says, "1  stand al lhe door and  knock, if any man hear  my voice and open lhe  door, 1 will come unlo  llim." Revelalion 3:20  Won't you let Him in  as Lord of your life and  Saviour from sin? The  season's joyous greetings  and a blessed New Year,  in Him, ihe Prince of  peace.  DON -and RENE SUTHERLAND,  of MITTEN REALTY - SECHELT,  would like to  wish you all  off the Season  und thank you for       ...���  Interest during the past year.  ~\  t  t?

LET THE CLASSIFIEDS  WORK FOR YOU...  WHILE YOU PLAY! 20     Coast News, December 21,1981  All is not progress  Sechelt Beach perspective  b> Vene Parnell  Part 2  Lasi week, the history  nl' Sechelt beach was  traced from Ihe late  WOO's, when the lirsl  while settlers came to  Sechell, In recent limes.  Ihis week, u look ai the  alternatives mil years  bier.  In lhe years between  1W6 mill I-J IK. Mind und  gravel had been laken  iimn Sechell beach In  barges lo build mad-  beds in Vancouver,  another money-making  scheme ol Whittaker's.  Helen dues nol belie e il  was ii greal deal ol  gravel, bui lhe shape of  itic beach was altered.  Al'tei ihe concrete wall  buill by lhe Union  Steamship Company was  destroyed by siorms in  I Ml, ihe beach remained undisturbed for  several years  However, in I975, lhe  Sechell council decided  in build the Trail Bay  Sea Wall with rip-rap  from highway "construction and lliis rough rock  was filled in with soil lo  form the existing roadbed, li cosl $5,000 and  was considered to be a  necessary step lo prevail  erosion by lhe sea.  Helen believes il was a  slep made necessary only  by a former council decision lo remove llic drill-  wood along lhe beach,  which had formed a  natural sea-wall for cen-  luries.  The work was slopped  ill April, 1976, by an  order from lhe provincial government's  Ministry of lhe Environment, which staled lhal  lhe rip-rap wall was a  trespass of the provincial  lease, li claimed lhe wall  was a hazard lo beach  users, ii blocked the  former easy access lo lhe  beach and lhal ii  "delraclcd from lhe  aesihelic. fealures of tlie  beach"] an opinion lhal  Helen heartily shares.  In 1981, lhe village  buill an exposed drain  pipe for the run-off from  newly-built Teredo  Street, "an ugly bliglu ai  lhe end of Ocean  Avenue, another unai-  iractive feature to spoil  lhe beach", stales Helen.  Dill Fraser, an owner  of Royal Terraces, is Interested in making the  beach in from of his pro-  jccl more alraclive, since  lhe walerlronl will be a  major attraction IO condominium residents.  "I have discussed I lie  possibilities with an ur-  chitect, bin ai ihe moment ihere is no par-  liculai plan proposed by  council for lhe beach  area. We wain our improvements io fit in wilh  lhe entire beach front,  bin wc are slill only in  lhe discussion stages  wilh lhe Mayor and  Sechell council."  Mayor Bud Koch  believes ii is loo late to  go back and restore  Sechell beach to iis  former natural slate, "as  Helen Dawe would  like". He believes lhe  rip-rap wall was  necessary lo prevenI erosion, bin ihai ii has tint  been I he besi sol ul ion  and lhe lime has come lo  design a belter plan for  lhe beach.  "We arc consulting  wilh engineers and asking advice of local ex-  pens lo find lhe besi  solution. We cannot  spend a lol of money and  arc hoping lhal the  engineering advice and  Ihe labour involved in  lhe beach project will be  largely voluntary.  Presumably, all Ihe  residents want Ihe beach  improved and to make il  inlo a pleasant, attractive spot."  Mayor Koch staled  thai Helen Dawe's  recommendation lo consult with Wolf Bauer, of  Seattle, a shore resource  consultant, "will be  given serious considera-  lion, because we do not  In West Sechelt  Waterline halted  The Wesl Sechell waterline main project will be  hailed as soon as existing pipe lias been laid, due lo  rejection by Victoria of borrowing by-law #207 to  finance lhe project.  The by-law which was hurriedly prepared and senl  in Victoria lasi month was returned to ihe regional  board by ihe Ministry of Municipal Affairs.  Secrelary-lreasurer Larry Jardine lold Ihe board al  Thursday's meeling ihe by-law must be wrillen  separately and not added on to the Secret Cove waler  main and reservoir construction overrun by-law.  The board gave ihree readings al Thursday's  meeling lo lhe new by-law lo borrow $360,000 for lhe  Wesl Sechell project, which is almosl half-  coinpleled.  Public Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon told  I lie board ihe projeel can afford a one monlh delay  until lhe new by-law is approved and relumed from  Victoria, as work is already well-advanced lowards  ihe projecled compleilon dale of May 1982. Approximately 3,900 feel of pipe is already on sile and clearing work on lhe second half of ihe line is completed.  Dixon staled lhal lhe lolal cosl of lhe Wesl Sechell  projeel would be $360,000 compared to the $600,(XX)  estimate given by Dayton and Kniglil engineers who  expected the projeel would be done through private  contractors rather than by regional board employees.  ct\ristn|d$ greetings  to our Customers  SB & 911 ^n^oitfoiuHui  CARPET, TILE & SHEET VINYL  Scott SB-u-JL &C^l9\Uln  We will be CLOSED  from December 24th until Jan. 4th  waul lo make any more  mistakes.  "We are nol going lo  do anything umil we are  sure ihai we have lhe  best plan from an  engineering point of  view. The improvements  lhal we do now will have  lo lasi for the future and  we want ii done righl."  Vic Wallers, a local  businessman in Ihe sand  and gravel industry, has  suggested to council that  lie would like 10 sec sand  poured back into Sechell  beach.  "Years ago, sand was  laken oui of the beach.  Norm Burley remembers  when he was a young  man, playing ball on the  Hal stretch of sand at  low tide, bul lhal is gone  now.  "The beach is a terrible mess now. The riprap wall is eroding and  lhe beach is littered wilh  cracked rocks. There is  no doubl lhal something  needs to be done.  "The rip-rap lhal is  Ihere now should be  cemented into place and  ii will be necessary to  engineer ii in such a way  ihai ii will withstand ihe  sea. Now lhal the logs  have been removed, ilie  natural protection of the  'shoreline is gone and  something has lo be done  io prevent fun her erosion."  Wallers believes lhal  consulting with Wolf  Bauer will be "fairly  cosily" and does not  believe il is necessary.  "We have a greal deal of  local talent and expertise  to call on, people who  may be willing to contribute their advice as lo  how bcsl to proceed.  "The beach is an im-  poriani attraction for  tourism in lliis area. The  improvements could be  done gradually, once a  plan is agreed upon."  Sechell beach, once a  natural splendour, now  stands isolated and  despoiled. In spile of  man's interference, the  worn-smooth pebbles  slill roll onto the shore  and, someday soon, once  dangerous sharp rocks  are removed, children  may once again play in  lhe waler and small  boals line ihe shoreline.  Damage has been  done, bul maybe it is nol  loo late.  In the  greenhouse  by Sandy Loam  Since the winter  weather appears to have  settled in in earnest,  those of us fortunate  enough to have a  greenhouse can concentrate all of our efforts  there.  Soil: The best  greenhouse soil is a mixture of one part peat,  one part sand, and two  parts of good garden  soil. An addition of one-  eighth vermiculite or  perlite will assist  drainage. It is advisable  to pasteurize, not  sterilize soil for use in the  greenhouse. To  pasteurize put soil in foil  pans, cover with foil,  place in oven and bring  temperature to 180��F.  This kills harmful  bacteria while preserving  useful bacteria. Soak the  soil well before using.  Temperature: Even an  unhealed greenhouse will  grow some crops in  winter. Try the following:- lettuce, radishes  and spinach.  The ideal for a heated  greenhouse is a daytime  temperature of 65 ��F  (19��C) and a nightime  temperature of 45 ��F  (7 ��C). You can maintain  temperatures by double-  glazing, i.e. attaching  plastic sheeting lo the inside for insulation. Keep  the air stirring with an  electric fan, to minimize  heat loss.  Ventilation: Do not let  the air become stagnant.  Have ventilation sources  close to heat source.  Watering: Plants should  have a good soaking at  regular intervals, but soil  should be allowed to dry  in between. Don't water  foliage. Water in the  morning. Use warm  (70 ��F) water if possible.  Nexl lime:, tomatoes and  cucumbers.  "If Christmas means anything,  it should mean that, like the  Shepherds of old, we catch a vision of  the world as it qught to be and not as it  is. In our finer moments all of us feel  the thing we ought to be, beating  beneath the thing we are."

For Information  886-2615  885-5664  by Chak-Chak  Here it is Christmas  already and people are  getting ready for the  traditional turkey dinner. Not everyone, including myself, dines on  turkey during this festive  season however. In many  countries seafood is the  main dish.  I liked baked salmon  or smoked sable fish  (black cod) poached.  Prawns, abalone or  scallops when combined  with certain vegetables  can be very delicious.  The Scandinavian  countries always feature  seafood dishes at this  time of the year. I am  sure most people have  heard of 'Lutefisk' and  if you would like to try  some you can buy it  already prepared at the  Gibsons' Fish Market.  Carol Brakstad of  Gibsons gave me this  recipe for lutefisk.  Soak lutefisk in cold  water for 3 to 4 hours.  Place in a steamer or  poach in water that has  been brought to a boil.  Steam or simmer in  poacher for 5 minutes,  do not overcook.  Remove with a slotted  spatula and drain off excess water. Place on a  heated platter and serve  with a white egg sauce.  Garnish with finely  chopped egg yolk.  The Italian people also  enjoy a great variety of  seafood on Christmas  Eve. There is not enough  space at this time to deal  with those goodies.  Gibsons and Sechelt  Fish Markets have a  number of Scandinavian  kinds of fish available including frozen lutefisk  (must be thawed before  soaking), stockfish  (dried codfish), pickled  herring and rollmops,  lumpfish caviar and  frozen sliced, smoked  Pacific salmon in plastic  pouches processed by  their own company in  Vancouver for export to  California.  Here is a Scandinavian  type dish that I like that  would be suitable for  brunch during the holiday for those who are  tired of turkey.  Seafood Pancakes  Filling:- (Ingredients per  person)  Vt lb. Smoked Fish  (Salmon, Herring, Black  Cod etc.)  Vt lb. shrimp (pre-cooked)   or   small   prawns  (shelled)  Vt Ib. Spinach  Poach fish and remove  bones or use pre-cooked  barbecued salmon, keep  warm  in  oven.   Saute  prawns and keep warm  in oven. Cook spinach in  usual  way,  drain  and  chop with knife, place in  oven to keep warm.  Pancakes:-    (Makes  about 6 pancakes)  2/3  cup  whole wheat  flour  Vi tsp. salt  2 eggs (well beaten)  1 'A cups milk  I'/: tbsp. melted butter  or margarine  Combine beaten egg���  salt, melted butter and  milk; add flour slowly  and mix until smooth.  (Keep well mixed as you  use).  Bake on well greased  griddle or frying pan using about 1/3 cup of batter to make large pancakes 8-9 inches in  diameter.  Turn out onto hot platter, butter, roll, and keep  warm in oven 'til all batter is used up.  To serve, place on plates,  unroll, fill with equal  amounts of filling re-roll  and drizzle with 'Tangy  Orange-Lemon Sauce' or  'Mock Hollandaise  Sauce'.  Tangy Orange-Lemon  Sauce  1/3 cup lemon juice, 1/3  cup orange juice  Peel   from   1   orange,  grated (coarse)  1 tbsp. honey (or sugar)  1 tsp. cornstarch (mixed  in cold water)  Mix   juices,   peel   and  honey    in    a   small  saucepan over medium  heat;   then   add   corn  starch   and   mix   'til  thickened.   Serve   hot  over pancakes or crepes.  Mock Hollandaise Sauce  Just before serving stir in  3 tbsp. lemon juice, 6  tbsp. butter, added 1  tbsp. at a time and a  dash of cayenne; heat  thoroughly and gradually stir a little of the hot  sauce into 3 lightly  beaten egg yoks. Stir into  remaining sauce and  cook over very low heat  for 2 to 3 minutes, .stirring constantly. Serve  with vegetables or fish.  llCotmpiii-gerifs of the  Season and sea you.  School  Board  by Miryanne West  Criticism of CM Projects at the last School  Board meeting brought  the company's representatives to this week's  meeting with a progress  report, as follows:  Roberts Creek Gym  -excavation complete,  concrete should be  poured by Wednesday,  December 23rd and  masonry construction to  start after the New Year.  Building permit is  finalized, the septic  system designed and being processed by the  Health department.  Davis Bay School  ���Work will start on the  gym floor January 4th,  and is expected to take  about four weeks.  West Sechelt Elementary School - Foundations complete, masonry  started next week. Structural steel expected  January 5th. Weather  has slowed things down  but not affected completion date. Suppliers say  the heating system will  arrive on time. Skylights  will be added to the  library.  Chatelech - Waiting  for approval to go to  tender. Drawings and  budget have been sent to  Victoria. Completion  date July 1982.  The Bowen Island  Community School  Association has received  a letter from Evan Wolfe  informing them they are*  to receive a grant worth'  $19,306.67 from the  Recreation Facilities  Assistance programme  for the development of  outdoor facilities at the  Community school.  The whole project has  been estimated, to cost  approximately $53,000,  of which Bowen Island  will raise ten thousand  matched by the School  Board. Volunteer  labour, equipment and  materials it is hoped will  cover the discrepancy. A  team of Katimavikers  has been working at the  ���Community School since  September.
