 wmm  wmm  ~mr*  ~m  !ne Coast since 1945  I EGISLAT-IVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C.  81 1  The SunsMtie  news stands  Date yet to be set  Local teachers  plan job action  At a meeting held on Tuesday, December 9. 1980, the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association voted to proceed with a one-  day work stoppage as a part of teachers' province-wide dispute  with the provincial government over decreased pensions. The  date of the work stoppage has not yet been set, but will occur  "in accordance with the B.C.T.F. executive's co-ordinated  provincial timetable''.  AI Blakey, President of the BX. Teachers' Federation  addressed the meeting which took place at Chatelech Jr.  Secondary School, and stated that the B.C.T.F.'s timetable is  being modified at present, but that escalating action may be  necessary in January if there is no change by the government  by the end of the first week in January. This would suggest that  the local teachers' action will occur in the second or third week  ofJanuary.  The teachers are emphasizing that their dispute is with the  provincial government, .and not with the local School Board,  local community, nor local students.  _&M\  ��  *  ';;:"- WW *'l  h  *��_pG+~_m  mM  : ._.'������:  ._. !*"*��<   ���  y.;. jt  ji  u_  U'.��' J  -  -1  ^BMv^sJ  -  fct���   ... .^,.   ._  #���*"���  /  ��'-<.>".

M.����MiHHHHaMIHHMaHB  Delivered (o every address on the Coast  December 16, 1980  Volume 34, Number 50  Following Thursday night's regional board meeting, Chairman David Hunter provided a cake and bottles of wine to celebrate  Roberts Creek Director Harry Almond's eighth year on the board. Almond was first elected to the board ten years ago, defeated  after four years, and returned two years later. He is the board's longest-sitting Director.  Access and annexation discussed  Growing pains in both villages  Planning Committees of the regional board and Gibsons and  Sechelt municipal councils will meet early in the new year to  discuss guidelines for amalgamation and annexation proposals  which come before local governments.  The decision was sparked at last Thursday's regional board  meeting by a proposal referred from Gibsons council to the board,  requesting the amalgamation of a portion of the land in the area  bordered by Payne, Reed and Henry Roads and Highway 101  with the Village of Gibsons. The area is presently part of Electoral  Area E.  Area E Director Jim Gurney told the board, "I accept that  Gibsons must and will expand, but I question when and how."  Gurney mentioned a recent application to include three properties  on Mahon Road within the Village, pointing out that that  situation essentially constitutes a "straightening out" of the  Village boundaries. "This one here, however, projects out into  Area E," Gurney said.  Following a quip by Director Charles Lee about "Lorraine's  finger", referring 'o Cabinet Minister Grace McCarthy's alleged  tampering with electoral boundaries in the city of Vancouver,  Mayor Goddard assured the board that it is her council's policy  not to encourage or discourage such applications but to refer them  to the regional board for comment.  Director Gurney recommended a joint meeting ofthe planning  committees of local government bodies be held early in the new  year to establish policy procedures to make such transitions as  smooth as possible. Specifically Gurney recommended attention  be paid to complementary zoning between the villages and  adjacent electoral areas. The board decided to oppose the  proposed annexation until such a meeting has been held.  The issue was raised again later in the meeting when the board  refused to give second reading to an approval by-law for an 86-lot  subdivision on Sechelt Inlet northwest of the Village of Sechelt.  Alderman Brian Stelck of Sechelt stated that he could not  support second reading of the approval by-law since the  Department of Highways had given no assurances that a second  arterial access to the village would be provided in the immediate  future. Stelck stated that he felt the lots would sell and be built  upon quickly and the full weight of the additional traffic would  fall on the present road from the Arena alone.  Stelck said he had clearly stated at first reading ofthe by-law  that the village was having traffic congestion problems and would  need assurance from the Highways Department that Norwest Bay  Road, or another road in the area west of the village, would be  extended to relieve the pressure of additional traffic from new  developments north of the village.  Board Chairman David Hunter agreed that the subdivision was  bound to become "the village's problem" and recommended the  by-law be passed to the Sechelt Council Planning Committee for  detailed comment before second reading is given.

Harrison objects  Board to hire  economic czar  The regional board of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  decided last Thursday evening to proceed with an application to  hire an Economic Commissioner for the area, in spite of  opposition of Area A Director Joe Harrison.  Area D Director Harry Almond told the board he had  reconsidered his opposition to the move, since the cost to the  board will be minimal, but recommended the board take a hard  look at the program at the end of the first year.  Joint Federal and Provincial funding will pay 90% of the  Commissioner's salary in the first year, 70% in the second and 50%  in the third year, after which the board will be solely responsible  for maintaining the office.  Sechelt Alderman Brian Stelck made the motion to proceed  with the application, seconded by Area C Director Charles Lee,  and expressed the hope that Director Harrison might reconsider  his decision.  Phenomenal growth coming  Study to start  on local airport  A grant of $15,000 from the provincial government has made  possible a study of the feasibility of upgrading the Sunshine  Coast Airport.  A spokesman for the Airport Committee told the Coast  News that the airport at the present time has a runway of only  2600 feet and is without lights for night landings. A longer  runway would enable larger planes to land.  "This is the only runway on the Sunshine Coast, therefore, its  capabilities are of considerable importance," said the spokesman.  It is understood that the contract for the feasibility study  has been let to the Vancouver firm of Stanley and  Associates for an amount of $9,200.  A spokesman for the provincial government has reportedly  told the Airport Committee that growth of air traffic to the  Sunshine Coast is expected to be 'phenomenal' in the near  future, hence the grant for the feasibility study.  Of Sandy Hook Water Company  Board urges seizure of assets  New Trolling Regulations  Coast fishermen  meet in Sechelt  About 70 Sunshine Coast commercial fishcimen gathered in  Sechelt's Senior Citizen Hall last Friday to meet with a  Department of Fisheries representative.  The purpose of the meeting was clarification of the  government's new two-area licensing scheme which forces trailers  to opt for a Strait of Georgia licence or one valid for the rest ofthe  Coast.  The proposal has been defeated twice in the past as a result of  protests led by thc United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union  but the fishermen gathered in Sechelt last week were told that the  new licensing will be in effect this coming season.  Fisheries biologist Steve Heizer told the assembly that the new  regulations were necessary as a result of the serious depletion of  Chinook salmon at the present time and that the choice of areas by  licence-holders did not require a permanent commitment as it will  be reviewed on a yearly basis. Fishermen reacted unfavourably to  both statements, claiming that as a conservation measure, the  plan would be ineffective and that, based on past experience, once  restrictions had been imposed, they tended to remain.  Since most coast fishermen spend only a short time in the Gulf  at the beginning of the season and then move out to other areas,  they feel the result ofthe new legislation will be to drive them out  of the area permanently. The majority have no choice hut to opt  for the outside licence. They also feel that since statistics show  commercial fishermen account for 15% of fish caught with sports  fishermen taking the remaining 85%, the burden of conservation  is unevenly spread. Heizer said the proposal which he submitted  to his superiors with the two-area split also contained  recommendations for a closure period during the sports fishing  season but that in the final draught, it had been left out.  The meeting ended on a general note of frustration on the part  of fishermen and the formation of a committee to represent union  members in further dealings with the Fisheries on the matter of  troll licensing.  A petition was circulated protesting the new regulations and a  telegram containing the same message was sent to Fisheries  Minister Romeo Leblanc.  Gibsons seeks  downtown aid  Gibsons has received designation as a downtown area under the  Downtown Revitalization Program from the Honourable Bill  Vander Zalm, Minister of Municipal Affairs.  With this designation,' it is now possible to begin technical  discussions between Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Municipal  representatives concerning details of the proposed revitalization  projects for Gibsons and the accompanying provincial assistance.  There are four approaches in the flexible program to providing  financial assistance now that Gibsons has received its designation  from Mr. Vander Zalm.  - The Village of Gibsons can receive a grant of up to 25 per cent of  the cost of Ministry approved promotional and organizational  activities.

The regional board will go once more to the Provincial  Water Rights Branch with a request that the Branch acts to  seize the assets ofthe Sandy Hook Water Company and transfer  them to the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  The action was prompted by a letter fom H.D.C. Hunter,  lawyer for the Sandy Hook Water Company, who stated,  according to board Chairman David Hunter, that negotiations  between the Water Rights Branch and company are, in effect,  "none ofthe board's business".  The regional board has been maintaining and spending  Chief clarifies  "^  Sechelt Indian Band Chief Calvin Craigan told the Coast  News last week that he wished to see corrected the j  impression that the Band "would like to see the bulk oil  facilities currently at the foot of Wharf Rd. moved onto  their property" as reported on the front page of last  week's paper.  "All we said is that we would still be willing to provide a  site if the companies want to move," Craigan said.  In 1975, following discussions with the regional Planning Committee, the Band bad a study prepared by  Associated Engineering Services Ltd. to determine the  feasibility of establishing a bulk petroleum storage facility  on Band lands. Chief Craigan told the Coast News he  merely wished to advise the Mayor of Sechelt that the  Band's offer was still open.  Water leases  The regional board has scheduled, a second meeting  with District Land Manager Larry Sorken to discuss water  leases, enforcement of regulations and other matters  related to these topics. The meeting will be held in  the board room ofthe Regional District offices in Sechelt  on Wednesday December 17, at 4:00 p.m.  The board will present the foreshore lease guidelines proposed by its Water Lot Lease Committee to Mr.  Sorken for discussion at that time.  Carol ship  For the fifth year running, Danny Strom and the crew  ofthe Twin J are donating the boat and their time as the  Carol Ship between Langdale and Gibsons on the evening  of December 21st and 22nd.  The event is organized by the Gibsons Harbour Business Association and they invite other boats to join in the  fiin.

The Water Rights Branch, which has refused to allow the  transfer to proceed until the irregularities are corrected, has  also turned down one previous request from the regional  board to seize the system.  Area D Director Harry Almond suggested that the board  notify the Water Rights Branch that the regional board would  cease to maintain the system if the stalemate is not broken, but  the majority of directors on the board were not prepared to  abandon the system.  Area C Director Charles Lee observed that the Water Rights  Branch has the power to seize the system, but is attempting to  avoid setting a precedent. Lee recommended that the board  advise the Water Rights Branch that it is aware that the system  can be seized and request immediate action in this regard.  ON THE INSIDE...

The friend, an  American said only "America and its gun  laws".  We spoke of the violence and finally  of the killing of four American nuns in  HI Salvador just a little while ago. "I am  afraid," he said, "that they will find that  the nuns got an American-made bullet in  the brain fired from an American-made  gun held in a hand which was trained by  an American advisor."  The next day in the news it was reported that the nuns had in all likelihood  been shot by 'security' forces of El  Salvador and the friend's sad assumption  oemed to be borne out.  A great American, John F. Kennedy,  >aid alniiisl twenty years ago "We have  nothing to fear but fear itself". Another  great American, Robert Frost who spoke  at Kennedy's inauguration, has observed  somewhere that there is nothing more  dangerous than a frightened human  being. A third great American, the  cartoon character Pogo, was given these  words by his creator Walt Kelly: "We  have met the enemy and he is us."   .  All of these things surely now we know  and know well but still the National Rifle  Association and its formidable lobby  prevent any tightening in America's gun  laws. Still the richest country in the  world hitches up its enormous technological power to fill the world up with  weapons when it still desperately needs a  better ploughshare. Still we must live in  fear in a world dangerously and increasingly armed.  How many tragedies must it take  and how great before the lessons of peace  and survival can be learned?  Some cold comfort  Every once in a while an editorial  voice in the wilderness is the recipient of  cold comfort. It was our opinion, expressed here a few weeks ago, that the  current conventional wisdom in government circles that the way to cure our  economic ills by restricting the money  supply through punitive interest rates  was potentially disastrous.  This week the Canadian Minister of  Finance Allan McEachern is bleating as  the American interest rates soar to 20%.  Even the Governor of the Bank of Canada  has discreetly and decorously raised the  question with his American counterpart  in the regular monthly meeting of the  financial poobahs in Switzerland. And,  the cold cup overfloweth, six Democratic  senators are trying to start a movement of  protest within the halls of government in  Washington.  What is the answer if not high interest  rates?   At  the  same  time  as  we  in  Canada are wrestling with record budgetary deficits both the Conservative and  Liberal governments have countenanced  the expenditure of $4 billion for an  airplane that may not be able to fly. At  the same time as interest rates in America are making it virtually impossible for  its people to buy houses its budget for  armaments soars to a record $165 billion.  At the risk of sounding simplistic we  would observe that the economies of the  Western nations, and the Eastern as well  for that matter, are in trouble because too  much money is being spent on the  weapons of destruction.  To drastically cut the money supply  for food and shelter while allowing  increasing billions to be spent on guns  and bombs is an indication of the fact  that society has lost its way. The world  needs bread not bombs and a roof over  its frightened head rather than ever  more repeating rifles.  %  ..from the files of the COAST NEWS  f itW^<?**M^ I  FIVE YEARS AGO  Not available.

Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >  George Matthews  3i v  JOHN LENNON:  Bom daring the Blitz, shot In  the streets, he wis a man of  peace.  As far as being a Beatle fan  is concerned I was definitely a  Johnny-Come-Lately. Just as  they were, coming to prominence and before I was  aware of their existence I  turned my back on the seething worlds of North America  and Europe across which they  were beginning to stride like  four irreverent giants.  I had mixed motives for  heading north to the Yukon in  the summer of 1963. There  was the undoubted allure of  the unknown north and the  romance of the Klondike.  There was also the fact that I,  with my customary mixture  of melodrama and perception,  felt back then that society had  taken a wrong turn or two  too many and it was time to  head for the hills.  So it was that the first  time I was aware of the  Beatles was on the cover of a  magazine in the kitchen of my  friends Margie and Art Fry  in the white dredgemaster's  house at claim number 37  Below Discovery on Bonanza  Creek, twelve miles or so  outside Dawson City.  It was probably the spring  of 1964 and the magazine, if I  remember rightly, was the  Illustrated London News and  the front cover had a picture of  the Fabulous Four. They were  sporting the new look that  manager Brian Epstein had  talked them into, the natty  little gray suits with the velvet  collars and the careful disarray of the mop top haircuts.  I suppose I had entered the  house in full Yukon winter  regalia bearded, and ice-  covered in mukluks and parka  in the first harshly stimulating  experience of the much-  storied northern winter and  when my eye fell on the  Beatles - what a ridiculous  name I thought - they looked  to me like a somewhat effeminate bunch of Edwardian  dandies.  I will confess, in short, that  the first impression left with  me confirmed that a general  decadence was sweeping the  Western world and I was  smug and righteous in my  my high northern vigour.  After I returned to Southern  Canada I still retained some of  my grouchy skepticism about  the Beatles. Then I began to  get my mind open enough to  begin noticing a few things  besides my own prejudices.  I guess it was the wit I  noticed first and we all  remember some of the one-  liners that the irrepressible  lads from Liverpool seemed  able to toss around like  confetti. Perhaps we all  have our favourite Beatle line  but for me the one that really  knocked me over and started  me re-evaluating was Len-  non's crack when the four lads  from Liverpool's seamy side  were called upon to perform  before the Queen at a Royal  Command Performance.  "For the next noomber,"  said he in his Liverpudlian  gutterals, "the poor people  can clap and you oop there,"  with a gesture to the Royal  Box, "can rattle your jewelry."  It was a flash of genial  irreverence which left its  targets enjoying his nerve as  much as the rest of the  audience and I began to  seriously re-evaluate my concept of the Beatles as Edwardian dandies. They were,  I realized, a manifestation  that the earthy intelligence  and enormous energy of the  hardy folk of the working class  of Northern Britain had found  a way past, over, and around  the barriers of that class-  ridden society. They had  changed the perception of the  rest ofthe world ofthe English  man as an arrogant, colonizing, overbearing fop and  quite suddenly, if belatedly, I  was paying attention.  Sometime in the late sixties  on ski tows on the mountain  just outside of Fernie I listened First to Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club  Band for the first times  and I was a fan.  I saw the movie Hard Day's  Night on its second tour of  movie theatres and was again  delighted. Through the late  Sixties the albums and the  movies came and where others  went to their third movie  Let It Be and came away disappointed I was deeply moved  by its honesty. It seemed to  me painfully frank documentary of the break-up of a  great group. The image of  McCartney, back to the  camera, in animated conversation about another tour  while Lennon, bespectacled,  long-haired and rail thin,  sat clothed in the sad and  resigned skepticism of a man  who knew it was over remains  with me as an image of the  schism which brought an end  to the Beatles.  Last week after I heard the  tragic news from New York I  put on  a neglected  album,  John Lennon's Imagine and  while listening to it realized  that Lennon's death was a loss  I felt more keenly than I had  anticipated.  For Lennon was the man  who gave the Beatles balls.  There was Ringo, the earthy,  friendly extrovert; George,  self-effacing and mystical;  Paul, Lennon's song-writing  partner, cute and romantic;  and there was Lennon.  John Lennon was a man of  intellect and passion and chief  among his passions was a  hunger for social justice  and an end to war. He was a  humanist. He knew instinctively that the great potential  that is mankind was everywhere being crippled by greed  and fear. He was a truth-  seeker and a troubadour in  the forefront of most of the  great issues of his troubled  times. He returned his Order  of the British Empire in protest of the Vietnam War  at a time when his contemporaries were still believing  it defensible. At the peak of  his energy and career he  retired and made the term  house husband fashionable  and to the end he sang songs  of uncompromising honesty  and hope.  He was anguished at the  killing and the greed associated with killing that has  marked man's history since  his birth at the height of the  German blitz on the Liverpool  Docks in 1940. Through all the  experimenting and the searching of his years Lennon's  honesty and his conviction  that mankind was capable of  treating itself better never  wavered.  All he was saying was  Give peace a chance.  The great cheesecake challenge reported herein a couple  of weeks back has heated up  considerably; 500 degrees for  ten minutes and 250 for a  further hour to be precise.  Originally, the contest was to  be a four party bake-off  but for reasons of time and  the 9 inch spring-form pan  with the shell, I whipped  up the filling.

Our recipe was a joint  effort, a product of weeks of  research. Andrea took care of  the shell, with a cheesecake  crust recipe apparently favoured by Prime Minister  Trudeau with a couple of our  own refinements. The original  recipe calls for 1/4 cup  margarine, 1/4 cup sugar and  l'/j cups graham cracker  crumbs. In a stroke of culinary  genius, we substituted shortbread crumbs for the graham  wafers and added some  melted butter to account for  the fact that we were baking it  rather than just refrigerating.  I handled the filling, 24  ounces of cream cheese;  16 ounces of creamed, 2%  cottage cheese; l3/�� cups of  sugar; 3 tablespoons of flour;  1 'A teaspoons of grated lemon  peel; the same of orange peel;  1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract; 5 eggs, 2 egg yolks and  a quarter cup of heavy cream.

Our beautiful cheese  cake has just developed a  massive crack and it currently  resembles an earthquake  zone. It occurs to me that if  the cottage cheese dries out,  our tilling will have the,  consistency of uncooked rolled  oats. It looks as though we'll  have to put our faith in good  intentions and a good topping  to cover up our mistakes,  although it's still not too;  late to get to the bakery before  it closes.  The topping was Andrea's  responsibility. (I get the easy  parts). She opted for a red'  cherry glaze which called for a  can of sour red cherries.  1/4 cup of sugar, a table*  spoon of cornstarch, a tabled  spoon of lemon juice and a  couple of drops of red food  colouring. She boiled all that  up for a couple of minutes and  set it aside to cool.  �� ��� ��  We just took it out of the  oven. Our fears have begun  to subside somewhat as th;  cake settles back down into  the pan a bit. I guess we  should have left a half inch  or so at the top instead  of filling the pan up so much.  At this point, all we can do is  wait until it cools. When it  does, we'll spoon the cherry  glaze on and put it in the  fridge for three or four hours.

Letters to the Editor  New ICBC Rates unfair  to the senior citizens  Ed. note. The following Is a  copy of a letter about ICBC  rates:  Hon.  Don Lockstead,  MLA,  Victoria.  Pear Sir;  We would like to bring to  your attention the situation  of the new seniors (and others  on limited incomes) in connection with the new fees for  ICBC.  Living as we do in a rural  area, and having no public  transportation, we are forced  to have a vehicle of some kind  fo get to thc stores to buy our  groceries, attend the doctor's  offices, etc. etc. Previously  we were given a small grant  for living in a remote area,  likewise some consideration  for being pensioners. Now,  I understand, this is to be  discontinued, which will result  in the insurance, which is  compulsory, being a real  hardship  to us, and others  like us, to pay. Many of us  only use our cars or trucks  to travel in the local area,  going to Vancouver perhaps  only twice a year.  Could not some consideration be given to drivers in  our circumstances? As it is,  our financial situation is becoming more and more tight  every month - even with the  small raises we get in our  pensions - at the same time  the cost of living, Food,  Hydro, Oil and Gas, Cable  Vision, go up out of all proportion to the raise. How  about the unfortunate people  who are trying to live on one  pension? There are also many  of our friends who have taken  early retirement (generally  through failing health) who  are having a very different  time making out on non-  indexed pensions. We believe  it is very wrong to put these  people in the same class as  the other people who are  working and making good  wages.  We would ask your advice  and help in getting some  moderation in the insurance  rates for us and others in the  Province like ourselves where  there is no public transportation. We do have a  "shoppers bus" which operates once a week, but again,  this is some distance away  from us and there is no way we  can manage without our  vehicle.  We are not worried about  "taking it with us" when we  depart this life - our problem  is having enough to last us  until that time!  With kindest personal regards,  Sincerely yours,  Keith and Olive Comyn  Editor:  The CNIB would like to  thank all who helped with  CNIB campaigns  for  1980.  A special thanks to the  Royal Canadian Legion Ladies  Auxiliary and to the Coast  News for coverage and consideration.  M. Knowles,  CNIB Chairman 1980  Snowballs  dangerous  Editor:  I believe snow is a wonderful  thing if not abused.  In the past I have been  involved in throwing snowballs  at passing cars, but it wasn't  until December 2nd that I  realized how dangerous it is. I  was the victim instead of the  culprit. On this night while  driving on Hwy 101 past the  high school I noticed a group of  people talking to a policeman.  My attention was on them but  out of the corner of my eye, I  ' saw someone hurling a big  piece of ice towards my windshield. The ice along with the  glass crashed through the  windshield and hit my passenger in the face. It was luck that  we got out of it without too  much injury, for if the ice  would have hit me, the driver,  there could have been a fatal  accident.  I feel there is no harm in  friendly snowball fights but  when it gets to the point of  involving cars and peoples  safety it should be stopped.

(with minor  exceptions) must insure.  Autoplan is underwritten  by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, a  crown corporation originally set up primarily for  auto insurance and secondarily as a competitive  general insurer.  Although the General  Insurance Division of ICBC  started writing in 1973 (and  has since become a major  force in thc industry), the  Autoplan Division came  into full operation on March  I, 1974.  Since that time we have  seen many changes take  place. Some of thc major  ones being the decision to  make Autoplan self- sufficient by removal of government subsidies and  subsequent rate increases in  1976 and the introduction of  the F.A.I.R. program in  1980.  In this series of articles, I  will clarify some of thc  coverage conditions of Autoplan. concentrating on  what, in my experience,  seem to be problem areas.

Cliff and I need  all our combined woods-savvy  to fight some of those logs out  from the back-end. The bluffs  present a continuous problem  and the overstressed machine is  straining its guts to the limit.  There is no possibility for any  fullboring here. It's a bull-low  show.  The weather worsens and the  clouds drop down again. Half  the time, we're fogged-in solid.  One day. Cliff takes a tumble  and wrenches his back. He  can't work with it and is obliged  to go home. It's around noon  and I'm all for packing her up  too. It's drizzling steady rain  and the mist is thicker than I've  ever known it. You can't see  fifteen feet. Up comes hagridden Black, bedevilled by  Cirimley and the corporate  forces behind him. "Do you  figure you can make it down  there by yourself for the rest of  the day?" he almost implores.  "I've got to get this wood out!"  If it had been first thing in the  morning, I might have refused  but I'm already half-soaked -  full of the mountain-madness -  beyond really giving a sensible  damn. "Sure, 1 guess so," I say.  Down and alone in that  ghostworld, I suffer misgivings.  If Cliff were there joking  alongside me, 1 wouldn't mind  but by myself, it's an eerie  proposition. It's also hazardous To circumvent the rock  laces, we've smashed or diverted thc line around a large fir-  stump   Ihis causes the logs to  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  bypass the bluffs and worm  their way out up a narrow  draw. As a result, I'm working  in a perpetual bight. If the line  ever jumps free and assumes its  natural position over the  rockface, I'll be in sure-as-hell  trouble.  I'm obliged to spot the  rigging purely by ear, stabbing  it to a half with the whistle  whenever the tinkling clatter  seems to coincide with the spot  where the next logs lie. It's a  hit-or-miss game and I make  bets with myself to keep my  mind off the discomfort and the  danger. Lost in the wel limbo of  the fog, I function like a  blindman, tapping a steel cane  across the hill. I have no watch  and time cases to exist. I'm  amazed and relieved when the  quitting-whistle finally blows  me in.  Cliffs injury proves no more  serious than my sprained ankle.  Shortly, he returns; the weather  improves; we laugh and curse  our way through the rest of that  enormous setting. On the latter  part of it.the troublesome  bluffs dwindle out and the  yarding goes much easier.  Finally and unbelievably, we're  hooking up the last log on the  last road. It's also the last log  on the mountain for the  steelspar crew finished the  previous week and have already laid-off. It's game over  for Stocker's Cove.  We rattle down from the  heights on that final day, wind  through the devastated arena  of the logged-clean bowl and  head for the spill. At the soon-  to-be-abandoned beachcamp,  Black greets us with several  cases of beer. He's out from  under his pressures and looks  extremely relieved by the fact.  We sit around the office and  hold a light-hearted wake until  the beer's gone. I feel both a  sense of relief and a curious,  illogical sadness. "Look's like  the bar's dry" says Casey  finally, draining his bottle.  "Let's hit the gaddam road."  We trail down to the float,  climb aboard the camp-boat  and leave this piece of country  to the alders. As we churn  towards home, a strange snatch  of doggerel runs unbidden  through my head:  I'll climb those mountains no  more  where we logged with Billy  Fullbore -  raincome   -   snowcome  -  weathercome down ���  I'll climb those mountains no  more.

In the  course of various periods of  bachelor subsistence In basement apartments I'd mastered  Boiling Water, The Cheese  Sandwich and its variations  (Untoasted, toasted, hold and  heavy on the mayo) and  Heating Up the Canned  Spaghetti. I got an eight  -tour course in culinary procedure from the departing  chef, a huge flapping apron  and a stack of battered  cookbooks.  / Those cookbooks literally  ijaved my bacon more than a  few times in the next three  vfieks. The five other men I  cpoked for discovered their  stomachs were made of  sterner stuff than they'd  thought and I discovered you  can really look like you know  what you're doing if you  just read the directions.  ;".The cooking fit doesn't  pome over me all that often  liny more, but I find 1 still like  to thumb through a cookbook  rjow and then. It gets the  gjands working and besides,  what people eat and the care  they take in its preparation is  a fundamental reflection of  their culture.  A book that scores on both  counts and should be of  special interest locally is Lee  Reid's From a Coastal Kitchen  (Hancock House, 1980) $7.95.  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday  2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.  Saturday 2-4 p.m.  : J86-213,0 ���  From ��� Coastal Kitchen is  billed as a "cookbook with a  difference" and that's putting  it mildly. For nine years,  Lee Reid and her husband  John have managed a floating  sports-fishing resort, wintering at Minstrel Island and.  spending the fishing season  up Knight Inlet at Lull Bay;  hence ihe subtitle, "food and  flavour from Lull Bay".  Coastal cuisine tends to be  a home-cooked improvisation-  al blend of whatever fresh  ingredients are immediately  available, supplemented with  a broader range of packaged  staples that reflect the isolation and transport difficulties that are a feature of many  coastal communities. Lee  Reid's recipes aren't that  different, since she faces the  same difficulties; the difference is in her response to the  challenge to be innovative  and creative under conditions  that would have most camp  cooks dishing up another  round of bangers and mash.  Lee Reid's cookery makes  maximum use of available  resources and still manages  to come up with the unexpected; from "Service Nine  Salal Berry Jelly" to "Freshwater Bay Glazed Boar".  Naturally, her recipes are  heavily reliant on local seafood  usually prepared with an out  of the ordinary twist, like  "Georgie's Prawn Strogan-  off".  Most of the recipes are  named after places and people  who are in some way associated with their creation  and what makes From a  Coastal Kitchen so remarkably  readable as a cookbook are the  anecdotes that link the recipes; portraits of the people  and the life of Minstrel  Island and Lull Bay that Lee  Reid so obviously loves. In  between the homemade  breads, jellies, scallops, chowders etc. you'll meet John the  Cook, Lloyd the Bear, Spencer  Those of you who didn't  catch Coast Ten Television's  airing last week of "A Contrast of Visions", a film about  three Canadian artists, produced by Edmonton's Quality  Cable Television, should make  a point of parking themselves in front of the tube in  the event of a repeat telecast.  The film, which takes a brief  but informed look at the  careers of three contemporary  Canadian painters, opens with  the Crow and considerable  cast of friends, neighbours  and guests, human and  animal, who are part of Lee  Reid's Lull Bay experience.  From a Coastal Kitchen is  a good book to keep in mind  for Christmas; one of those  gifts that'll make somebody  think of you every time they  use it. As for me, I know  where I'm going for dinner if  I'm ever in Lull Bay. All for  now.  Book Look  by Murrle Redman  Infamous Woman: The Life of George Sand by Jospeh Barry,  1977, Doubleday, indexed, notes.  The famous Georges Sand, though a writer herself, is known  more for her associations with artists of the mid-nineteenth  century than her own works. Born a descentant of Augustus II,  king of Poland, Aurore Dupin or Georges Sand, saw France  through turbulent times.  Her own life was equally tumultuous. When young Aurore's  mother left her in the care of an imperious grandmother at the  family estate, "Nohant", the pretty child became a favourite. She  was instilled with respect for the arts. "Nohant's" guest lists  included France's finest, and Aurore grew up in an atmosphere of  liberalism and culture.  Author, Joseph Barry, brings to readers a perceptive rendering  of the remarkable life of a woman ahead of her time. Never having  known the bounds of a decorum which did not permit indulgences  in the name of artistic experience, Georges Sand lived and loved  freely with complete honesty. When she inherited "Nohant", it  became the gathering place of painters, musicians and writers.  Here she brought her lovers, friends and family to live in a strange  blend of propriety and passion.  The biography attempts to explain, if it were possible, the  actions of a woman who saw no harm in extending her affections  beyond what was considered appropriate to wife and mother. If a  revolution, she wrote inflammatory pamplets. If a romantic  interlude, she took the servants and children, went off to move in  with her lover.  Barry's fascinating account of the pre and post revolutionary  climate of France in the 1840's, is written in a manner which  provides an intimate view ofthe most surprising people. Sand was  friend to a great many names, now famous: Chopin, with whom  she lived for nine years, Dumas, Delacroix. Although her  scandalous divorce case, and her even more incendiary books  shocked Paris, her notoriety spread beyond France. The Bronte  sisters, Whitman, Dostoievsky and Eliot found her remarkable  life style and literary bravado influential. Today only about six of  her books are read with interest by scholars, but her life remains  the key to fame, or infamy. She writes of art:  "I believe that the artist should, as much as is possible, live true  to his nature...I believe that art needsa palette brimming over with  both violent and delicate colors to be used as the subject requires;  that the artist is an instrument whose every chord must be played  before he plays any other."  ffoC5?=i OSSiC^C?..

The film then introduces  Dorothy Knowles, a painter of  Prairie landscapes, whose  work is increasing in value and  increasingly in demand, in  spite of which her output of  canvasses remains small because of her dedication to  quality and her limited time  away from housework and  active motherhood. Her studio  for indoor work is in the  basement, beside the washer  and dryer, of the home she  shares with "colour painter"  William Perehudoff.  Perehudoff is described by  critics interviewed in the film  as perhaps the most thorough  student of colour of his time.  In addition to his painstaking  studies of colour theory and  exacting production of large  scale works that can only be  described as symphonies of  colour, Perehudoff holds down  a full-time job as a commercial  artist.  The third painter, Ernest  Under, is often included  among the Canadian "super  realists"; his detailed micro-  cosmic studies of the life of the  forest reflect an intense  intuitive understanding and  celebration of life that belies  his eighty-odd years.

Therefore, not much in  the way of news has been  gleaned this week. I do have  some goodies up my sleeve  but decided to wait till after  the holiday season. At this  time of year all we want to  know about is good and happy  items and there will be lots of  these in the next couple of  weeks.  Like the Christmas party  which the Halfmoon Bay  pupils will be having for their  parents and friends at the  school on the 18th, and  Santa's visit to the Hall on the  A Guld New Year:  Would like to remind you all  that the Welcome Beach  Community Association will  be holding their very populai  new year party at the hall on  the night of December 31st.  I i stivities will start at around  9 , ii:. and all members  ami frunds are invited to  come and join the fun. The  procedure for this party is that  you hr: g your own refresh-  rr ' s and snacks to nibble on,  ine food gets all put together  and laiJ out on the tables - always lots of good things - and  everyone just gets together  and it is always a really good  party which goes on until the  wee small hours.  There will be an admission  I jchargc of two dollars to cover  the expenses of the noise  makers and novelties as well  as the hall heating. Hope to  see you there.  Lovely local bride:  The Anglican Church at  Madeira Park was the scene  of a very lovely wedding on  December 6th when Rev.  Paetkau joined Kenneth  Wayne Newcombe of Pender  Harbour and Janet Harpnick  of Halfmoon Bay in holy  matrimony. The bride was  exquisite in her lace gown  with cathedral-length train,  while the maid of honour  and bridesmaids were in  beautiful contrasting green  velvet. Martina Dubois, formerly Zuidema, was maid of  honour while bridesmaids  were Mokie Sterloff and Tracy  Houghtaling.  Santa at the hall:  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission are once  on  December 21st. There is an  open invitation to everyone in  the area - from the wee ones  up to the grannies and grandpas ��� to come along and join in  the fun.  A tad note:  We were all really saddened  at the death this week of Bert  Moore, formerly of Redrooffs  Road. One cannot wish a  Merry Christmas to those  who have recently lost a loved  one - all we can do is to wish  them the strength to bear it  and that their friends will  help to comfort them.  Taking* break:  As there will be no Halfmoon Bay column until after  Egmont News  the new year I would like to  take this opportunity to wish  all our readers a very Merry  Christmas and a Happy New  Year. Special greetings, to  those who have helped keep  this little column going by  giving me little snippets of  news, to all the members of  the Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary and of the Welcome  Beach Community Association  as well as the Recreation  Commission. It is these  groups who make this such a  very delightful community in  which to live. Not forgetting  the Ratepayers' Association  too.  To all the guys and gals  at the Coast News Office - may  you all have a great holiday  and a much deserved rest for a  couple of weeks.  Silver Sea  Handmade Jewety    ,.

He  wanted everyone to know of  the equipment he has at home  and requested everyone to  phone bim in an emergency.  Ian asked for volunteers to  receive phone calls if he's  working or away. John Sea-  brook, who also has an  Industrial First Aid ticket, and  Billy Griffith, are two people  you can call if you get into  trouble    and    Ian's    gone.  The second item on the  agenda was the big one; and  concerned the inception of a  Community Plan for the town,  such as Roberts Creek has and  Pender Harbour is working  on. Ron Fearn chaired this  portion of the evening and we  were fortunate to have the  enlightened company of Joe  Harrison, Regional Director  for Area A and the Regional  Planner Bill Lindsay. These  gentlemen outlined what a  Community Plan is and  pointed out its benefits and  answered the many questions  we had. It was generally  agreed that Egmont needs  some development to survive,  but that such a plan would  give us a say so in what type  of   development   we'll   get.  ��10 GIFT TO THE GIVER  During the month of December  purchase a KODAK  COLORBURST 250 Instant  Camera and get a $ 10.00 rebate  from KODAK For lull details,  drop in today.

It's hoped  these people, as well as  anyone else who wants to  help, will be able to draw up a  suitable plan for Egmont to  agree on.  The third issue concerned  the possibility of a TV satellite  dish for the area. Everyone  knows that Egmont is off the  beaten path, with little or no  hope of ever getting cable, so  Ian again took the chair to tell  us ofthe research he's already  done on the subject and see  if we were in favour of the  idea. Everyone decided the  idea was just dishy and gave  Ian a vote of confidence. The  meeting was considered a  great success and we paid  special thanks to Joe Harrison  and Bill Lindsay for their time  and help.  In other news, this Saturday  will see a couple getting  coupled. May Howitt will  marry Rob Silvey in North  Vancouver and they are given  the best of wishes by their  many friends. They'll have a  reception later in Egmont.  I should have mentioned  that last week Ollie and  Doreen Gronkjaer had a  gathering at their house to  give a demonstration of candy-  making. These people were in  the baking business in Vancouver and make delicious  marzipan, mint parties and  nougat drops. Nummers!  Dear Editor:  After reading your report on  Sunday's Settlement Meeting  I wonder if we both were at the  same meeting. Definitely we  have different ideas on what  was said. You were there  when Mr. Harrison was  bombarded with questions  and statements while he tried  to explain the settlement plan.  The plan did upset a large  amount of people and they  were hostile to its instigator.  The time did come after you  left, when a compromise was  being intelligently discussed.  This was after Mr. Harrison  realized people were at the  meeting because for one  reason or another they did not  like parts of the plan. Then  and only then did the meeting  start to roll along.  The headlines on the front  page were misleading and  false. Sewers and cluster  housing were not urged for  Pender Harbour. In fact most  people would like to keen *he  area country and the feeling of  rural setting. One thing  people didn't agree with  the plan absolutely shut out  any thought of sewers or  disposal stations for future  use. Even if growth and  population demanded otherwise. We can't afford them  now and I agree sewers are  not needed for many years,  but when septic tanks become  obsolete we should then  investigate other means of  sanitation.  The plan encourages single  family dwellings - on 1/2-2  acres. Who will be able to  afford these? Not everyone  wants acreage to look after.  The plan forbids apartment  multi-dwellings   and   cluster  housing (except for senior  citizens home). Why should  one segment of the population  be allowed cheaper housing  and not the other?  The Government at the  present time, is encouraging  people to make use of cheaper  housing as it is the only way  were concerned about one  statement in the plan, stating  "It is the policy of the Regional District to reduce or eliminate aircraft noise in Pender  Harbour area". It was the  word eliminate that bothered  them! Anyway, this was  talked over and it was agreed  many people will be able to to do everything possible to  afford a place of their own. reduce noise and "eliminate"  Thank  goodness  there was that statement from the plan,  enough people at the meeting The meeting went as far as  to have Mr. Harrison see this page 5 on the plan, 11 more  and agree each development to go.  must be judged on its own Read them and come to the  merits. next meeting, it should be  I did a head count of the interesting!

Upon  >,further  examination  of the  I. plans    and   tenders    there  appeared to be several ways  to bring costs down from the  estimates of over $600,000.  [   Architect  John   Leishman  'discovered he'd been given  the wrong snowfall condition  figures by the Regional Board  and the roof would not have to  be as strong as designed. That  .and other changes could bring  the cost down to $520,000 or  less.  A construction management  firm that regularly does work  for the School Board is also  looking over the plans and is  expected   to   have   several  .suggestions for cutting down  on expenses this week.  r   But additional funds will  still have to be found and that  >is largely up to the School  ; Board. Roberts Creek Elementary would qualify for a full-  : sized gym under the Ministry  of Education's new manual  ;but in order to receive additional  funding  the  Board  ;'must convince the Ministry  ; .that it is a high priority item.  ;���   The expansion of the West  ��� Sechelt School and Chatelech  ;|will likely receive top priority  !;on the Board's next CEP list.  :|rhat  leaves  Roberts  Creek  competing for third. position  with  the  new workshop  at  Elphinstone.  ���   It is likely that the Ministry  ''would   approve   of   further  funding   for  a   large   gymnasium. It is only reasonable  ; with the growing population in  ; the area.  Davis  Bay is to  . receive a full-size gym on that  :;basis. The Board went ahead  ({with the renovation of Roberts  !;Creek's old activity room with  ���;the   Department's   approval  ^because eventual enlargement  'iwould   have   cut   into   the  playing   field.   As   a   result  !;the  School  has  been  stuck  jwithout a gym this year.  0   The problem is time. The  Department will not approve  the CEP proposals until spring  and that was what delayed the  project last year. Meanwhile  'costs are continually going up.  "-  One consolation is that by  that time maybe more labour  will be available. One of the  problems in the bidding for  the  contract  was  the  local  building boom. Nobody needs  the work and there was no  .local    labour    available    so  ^estimates were high. Perhaps  when construction starts the  situation will have changed.  We'll   know   how   things  Thin*  Christmas'-  *IIIIV*%%  We have a <��yr,~  oi Great Gilt  Giving ���������  Gibsons  Landing  stand by the end of this week.  We'll have the suggestions  for cutting down cost and the  School Board's draft of its  CEP priorities. For that reason  the School Board meeting this  Thursday should prove interesting for anyone from the  community who wishes to  attend.  Choir Concert  With no gymnasium, Roberts Creek Elementary decided not to put on a full-  scale Christmas concert this  year but the junior and intermediate choirs and perhaps  the band will be performing at  a "Community Christmas  Concert" at the Community  Hall tomorrow (December 17)  at 7 p.m. Parents and other  members of the community  are urged to come out. It's a  good way to get into the  Christmas spirit.  Dance Saturday  Tickets for the hockey dance  with the popular "Barrelhouse  Blues Band" at the Hall  this Saturday are available at  Seaview Market and from  members of the Roberts  Creek team.  No Association meeting  A reminder that there is no  December meeting of the  Community Association. The  next meeting will be January  21.  The Big Band Sound  The sound, of "The Big  Band" is back and that's the  name of the group playing at  the New Year's Eve Dance at  the Community Hall. It's a  group of six local musicians,  including a trombone and sax,  and they'll be playing a lot of  "swing rock and roll". In  other words, good dance  music.  Tickets are $12.50 per  person and include admission,  one free drink, late night  buffet, and party favours.  They're available at Seaview  Market.  Legion New Year  Tickets for New Year's  Eve at the Legion are available  at the Legion. They're $20 per  -couple and include a free  drink and food. Music will be  by George Page.  The Ladies Auxiliary are  making up Christmas gifts  for the senior members and  will be holding a Vets Dinner  at the Legion on January 18.  The Walkeys cleaned up at  the crib tournament last week.  Joy took first and Bill got the  booby prize. Emma Hupe  came second. The crib tournaments are held at the  Legion every Thursday night  at 8 p.m. Everyone welcome.  Faire Success  Despite the inclement  weather the Roberts Creek  Crafts Faire on December  5 and 6 was very successful.  By Saturday all the craftspeople had managed to dig  themselves out and the Hall  was packed.  There was an interesting  selection of goods: the "hobby  lions" would delight any  child, the feather jewellery  and beadwork were both contemporary and historical, the  gingerbread houses certainly  looked good enough to eat, the  silk fringed lampshades and  painted pillows would add to  any decor and one could fill  those gaps on the Christmas  list with items of pottery,  jewellery, stained glass ornaments, candles or fragrant  herbs and sachets. The  wonderful variety of goods  demonstrated once again how  many talented people there  are locally.  Nobody entered the baking  contest but Ken Boe and Judy  Fitzgerald won first for their  dill pickles and Diana Zornes  second for her antipasto.  From all reports the beer and  wine contest went down well  also.  In the raffle, Mr. and Mrs.  R.M. Hyslop won the quilted  wallhanging, Ted Eades won  the stocking, and Sue Shepherd won the tree. The  winning ticket for the door  prize was #15740. The ticket  must be produced to claim  the prize so if you have it,  phone 885-2972. If unclaimed  the prize will be donated to the  Elves Club.  The Crafts Faire was  organized by the Hall Com-,  mittee and they'd like to thank  all the people whose .generosity helped to make the  Faire a success: Super-Valu,  Ken's Lucky Dollar, Upstairs  Downstairs Shoppe, The Landing General Store, Coast  Cablevision, Cedars Inn,  Campbell's Variety, Miss  Lim's and Mr. Robinson's  choirs, Come Home Cafe,  Evergreen Landscaping and  Seaview Market..They'd also  like to thank the craftspeople,  all those who worked so hard  to organize and help and all  who   came   to   the   Faire.

Alderman Joyce Kolibas watches as Alderman Les Brown signs at the inauguration ceremony held  in.Sechelt last week.  ??  Round pegs in round holes  n  "What we have are round  pegs in round holes," said  Mayor Bud Koch at a joint  inauguration-planning meeting of the Sechelt Council  last week.  Koch was referring to the  inauguration for another term  on the council of Alderman  Joyce Kolibas and Alderman  Les Brown. Kolibas and  Brown were .appointed to the  council by acclamation.  Koch named Alderman Kolibas, the 'senior person on  council' to the position of  Deputy Mayor and congratulated members of council  already serving on the various  committees.  "Our people are doing  a yeoman job and we'll stay  the way we have been,"  said the mayor.  At the same meeting  Alderman Brian Stelck presented his provisional budget  for 1981. In general terms the  budget will increase about  12% with the salary portion  increasing 11.4%.  Stelck told council that with  the provincial government  raising local assessments and  reducing taxes from 15% to  11% there were some unavoidable areas of uncertainty  in the budget.  In other council business it  was    announced   that    the  Police news  Police report ongoing cases  of dogs attacking chickens  and would like to remind the  public that owners of livestock  have the right to protect their  animals against such attacks.

Ch'in, the Emperor, had lived with 3,000  beautiful women, but he had become weak  with age. Wanting to regain his youth, he  sent Jo-Fu-Ku to the East Sea to find an  elixir of life. He had never thought that if  such a remedy already existed, thousands  of greater, stronger, more youthful men  than him who had already drunk it would be  living in this world, and for him it might  already be too late to win even one of the  3,000 women.  We don't have such an intense desire for  youthfulness as Ch'in,  But on the night of snow,  We like to put more firewood  On the remaining fire.  Join us at Yoshi's Restaurant, Sunnycrest  Shopping Centre, 886-8015, for delicious  meals fit for an Emperor, served in pleasant  surroundings.

December Hi Two flags were  stolen, one from the police  station in Sechelt and the  other from Coast Cable  Vision.  There was an attempted  break-in at the Garden Bay  Hotel, however nothing was  stolen.  Pender Harbour Chevron  reported the theft of an  AM/FM radio valued at $400  and a CB radio valued at $200  from a vehicle.  December 12th: A windshield  was smashed on a Volkswagen  in the Egmont parking lot. A  battery was stolen from a  vehicle at the same location.  19 pm.  and OPEN CHRISTMAS EVE  Cowrie St.    Nexl lo Getaway Holidays     885-3611  iMHMMi    MMMIMMMMiMMMIMIIIMIIMMMMMMMBMMMMMi Coast News, December 16, 1980  Keith Wallace congratulated  Time for an arts subsidy  by Joan Huesds Foster  The Sunshine Coast Art  Centre at the corner of Trail  and Medusa in Sechelt has  been operating smoothly and  beautifully for more than a  year now and it has become a  true asset to the entire coast.  As we near Christmas I will  again take time out to congratulate Keith Wallace and  the volunteers who keep  this well run gallery going.  It has become almost a way of  life for them and I doubt if  this can continue without  regular livable remuneration  for our able curator (who can  often be found cleaning the  floors and doing dishes),  This Gallery has given a  tremendous boost to the area  and a lasting benefit to the  children who have visited  it. The Arts Council pays  Wallace two hundred dollars  a month (the volunteers have  a hard enough time raising  that). It would seem to me that  the time has come for the  village of Sechelt and the  surrounding municipalities to  contribute a decent living  wage for this hard work so  well accomplished. Wallace  puts in about a sixty hour  week   including  many   evenings.  Many people were, put off  by the initial lack lustre  building confusion but that  sort of thing is in the past.  We now have a small Art  Gallery that is as well and  devotedly run as any small  town gallery in British Columbia and we should be proud of  Wallace has spent the  year learning a whole lot  about running an Art Centre  and he could very easily be  snapped up by any one of the  small towns who are out  looking for just such a person.  The Art Centre has been a  huge benefit in providing  a showcase for our local  talented artists and artisans.  By next summer it should be  an active tourist attraction  as well with the landscaping  well under way.  The Arts Council can only  do so much with its volunteer  efforts so let us try to get  together and, if not a decent  living, at least pay Keith  Wallace the 'basic minimum  wage' for his efforts on our  behalf. What on earth would  happen if he threw up his  hands and left town? Someone  less able would snap up the  job but never again without  wages.  *   886-8101   ;  ^EBEACHCO^  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST  TAXI  The Elphinstone School Band under the leadership of Mr. Rayment added a musical touch to the  opening ceremonies ofthe new Kiwanis Long Term Care Program.  Trower in rare form  Party at the Literary Storefront  by John Angus  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FURNITURE  886-2812  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your  CoasI News  Classified   al  Campbell's  Family   Shoes,  Sechelt,   or  Centre   Hardw  are,   Madeira  Park.  On the walls of the Literary  Storefront on Cordova St. in  Vancouver's Gastown you will  find photographs of many  eminent literary figures. You  will see Hemingway and Fitzgerald. You will see a picture of  Margaret Atwood giving a  reading there. Also, prominent  amonst them, is a picture of  Peter Trower, Gibson's own  poet, face captured in a characteristic expression: it is a  kind of slow, half-emergent,  imperfectly repressed chuckle  that plays around his lips when  he is having a good time.  Last Sunday at the Literary  Storefront everyone was  having a good time. In fact it  would have been hard to have  found anyone present who was  less than absolutely delighted,  as Peter Trower and his  Musical Associates ran  through their selection of  musico-literary pieces.  Trower was upfront, growling   out   his  testatement  to  to all our Patrons & Friends  from Cedar Crest  Golf Centre  We'll be CLOSED  Dec. 23rd - 31st inclusive  Driving Range & Restaurant  OPEN NEW YEAR'S DAY!  Time's rapacity, while behind  him his Musical Associates laid  down an evocative backdrop of  textured sound. Terry Cowderoy on lead guitar was mean,  jagged, tortured, lyrical as the  occasion warranted, while Sam  Dill on bass and rhythm guitars  chopped out well-aimed and  precisely crafted passages,  joining with Barry Kringle on  percussion in creating the  rhythmic underlay of the  music.  This is not the first time that  Trower has presented his work  in a musical setting, but I  suspect that he had never been  better served than by his  present collaborators.  Most of the music is the work  of Cowderoy whose blues licks  may be familiar to those Coast  residents who frequent the Pen  Hotel or the Cedars. He is an  inventive and increasingly  adept musician whose sensibilities are not confined to the  blues form, though that is  certainly his stomping ground.  Sam Dill, the lanky one, is  steeped in the music of the  Caribbean, and his influence  on the ensemble is apparent in  the lilting cadences of 'Deepcity  Blues'. He also is a multi-  faceted musician who can dash  off a mean harp solo when  called upon.  With Krangle's crisp and  effective work on percussion  they combine to create a  musical envelope that is more  than mere accompaniment. At  its best, as in the ominous  'Storm Riders', or the nostalgic  'Kisses in the Whiskey', or the  bleak and chilling 'Alien  Ground', the music reinforces  and illuminates and colours  Trower's lyrics with broad and  vivid sweeps. But then - these  are no ordinary lyrics.  Make no mistake about this.  There are truly no more than a  handful of lyricists in contem  porary music whose writing is  ofthe calibre of Trower's. He is  second to none in that regard.  What may surprise some observers is how Peter has come  on as a singer. Still a rough  talent, albeit, but fifty years of  living and loving and observing  are crystallized in that slate-  textured voice - and you can  hear that. It is an evocative  instrument, fluid and expressive.  Put all this together and you  have a truly dynamic synthesis.  The poet invests the lyrics with  his own feeling and understanding; the music echoes and  reinforces the imagery; the  imagery in turn injects the  music with a depth and power,  each enhancing the other. "It's  just the blues, man," Trower  would growl.  Whatever it is, the audience  loved it on Sunday night. By  the end of the evening it was a  party at the Literary Storefront. Almost everybody was  dancing as Suzie Whiten, who  had opened the proceedings  with her own particular brand  of vocal pyrotechnics, was  easily coaxed back onstage to  kick out the jambs with some  traditional blues. If you have  ever seen Whiten sing the  blues, perhaps with the Barrel  house Blues Band, you will not  soon forget her. She all but  kicks out the walls as well as the  jams. Cowderoy blew the roof  off trying to keep up with her,  and Trower joined in for one of  his old favourites, 'Kansas  City', to close it all down.  A woman in a clown suit  approached me during the  evening and opined that we  were really seing something  quite special, and I agreed.  During the opening number  'Alien Ground', as the music  rumbled and shimmered ominously, the stooped figure of  Trower swayed eerily, one  finger prodding the air, voice  like sandpaper. As he rasped  out the last stanzas, the  audience was transfixed, held  by the spell ofthe music and the  imagery, rapt, in the palm of his  hand, right with him...  "... like a man  treading alien ground  on some odd .... and other...  planet!"  His lyrics completed, and  even as the music was still  mounting to a climax, Trower  wandered absentmindedly a-  way from the mike to bum a  light for his cigarette. He was  sporting that little curl of the  lip, that little shitkicking grin.  New Year's Eve in  Roberts Creek Hall  The new year will be rung in  with style and the usual  Roberts Creek enthusiasm this  year. A gala event is sponsored by the hall committee  to raise funds for the preservation of the beloved old hall  and this New Years party  looks to be another in the long  tradition of exciting hall  parties.  There is some particular  magic to the old hall...perhaps  the generations of good people  who have put {heir energies  into the community, perhaps  the very walls hold the vibrations of good times past...  which come out into the crowd  when foot stompin' and music  reach a crescendo.  The acoustics of the hall  may have something to do  with the history of good music  and great dances in Roberts  Creek.  The band for this New Years  Eve is aptly names "The Big  Band" with bass, drums,  piano, lead guitar, lead singer  and the unique full sound of  a horn section with saxophone  and the trombone. This band  played the last hall dance,  on Hallowe'en when Gibsons  Volleyball team sponsored  a sell-out event.  A ticket costing $12.50  includes admission, a free  drink, and a light buffet with  ham and turkey. Proceeds  from the evening will go  toward paying off the loan on  the hall. It looks like it will be  a good new year for the old  hall.

The  By the time vou read this Pearsons have what we might  the Pearson's Tree of Lights be tempted to call a "simple  will be lit on Pender Island, faith" that the way to true  sparkling across the water  each evening, but there is  still time to add your light with  a donation to C.A.R.E. which  will go to feed children in  countries less affluent than  ours. Despite our complaints  about the high cost of living  the effects of inflation are felt  much more keenly in the  Third World and C.A.R.E.  and other agencies have  increased calls upon their  resources.  However, it's not for that  reason that I write each year  about the Pearson Tree of  Lights, there are many deserving causes and many ways  in which we can contribute to  the happiness of others and  help these less fortunate than  ourselves, but the Pearson's  Christmas tree standing on a  bluff at the north end of  Pender Island, decorated each  year with over 2,000 lights is  a reminder of how much just  two ordinary people can do.  It's so easy to make excuses, "what can one person  do? " or "I haven't the time? "  or "I'm really too old to  take on anything new".  George and Edith Pearson  were in Iheir seventies, twenty  years ago, when they decided  to ask their friends not to  give them gifts, but instead  to send a donation to C.A.R.E.  which, in turn, would send  20 lbs. of food for every dollar  happiness is by helping  others, but that simple faith  is a very powerful tool which  has resulted in over $60,000  worth of food being sent to the  hungry since 1960. Each year  their tree, which in the early  years was small with a handful  of lights, one for each person  who made a donation, has  grown to accommodate thousands of lights.  Every donation is acknowledged with a temporary  receipt, an official receipt  issued later by C.A.R.E. for  income tax purposes. For  many years the Pearsons did  all , the work themselves,  financing the operating costs  Wasn't the snow wonderful! We took the dogs for a  walk in Cliff Gilker Park and  snow on the ground reveals  how well used the trails are.  Many people, many with small  children had also enjoyed the  park in the snow, people who  love the forest in its natural  beauty and took care to  disturb it as little as possible.  We didn't meet anyone, but  everywhere there were small  trees or branches bent over  the path by the weight of  snow, yet no-one had pushed  them aside knocking the snow  off, but had carefully ducked  underneath or gone around  leaving the beauty of the snow  undisturbed for the pleasure  of others coming later.

He dresses in overalls  with a bright red, white and  blue sash and his campaign  motto "They think you're  clowns, so why not vote for  one?" is catching on.

The display of Christmas lights  is always a welcome sight each  year.  1 was hoping when I started  this column that I would be  inundated with reader input  thereby giving me some idea of  what to base my next week's  column on. So far I lure only  had one inquiry. Sorry 1 don't  know the address of the lady  who gives the love parties,  Mom.  The cold weather we had last  week prompted me to check  our maple sapping equipment.  Maple syrup is usually connected with the eastern provinces and not many people  realize that our big leaf maple  produces  a quality product  similar to the sugar maple.  Syruping depends a lot on our  upredicatable weather. The sap  runs after a few weeks of  freezing temperatures followed  by sunny days above 45 degrees  farenheit but freezing nights.  This usually occurs anytime  after the winter solstice and  before February. With foresight, your equipment will be  ready and you won't miss out  on the elusive sapping weather.  The list of equipment used is  simple but essential. You will  need a 3/4 inch brace and bit,  pails to catch the sap in and  large containers to cook down  the liquid to syrup, and enough  spiles to fit in each hole that is  drilled in the tree. A spile is  merely a hollow tube in which  the sap flows from the tree. We  make ours from hollowed out  elderberry or salmonberry  stems, and cut off at 4 inches.  Drill into the tree about 3  inches deep or until the curl of  Evva, Bonnie,  ingrid, Barb & Kenna  Wish You a Very  Merry  Christmas  and  Thank You  for your  Patronage  For Your Convenience  We will be Open  Sun.

Drive  a large nail in the tree so that  your pail will hang under the  drip. If you leave the bucket  hanging overnight your first  reaction in the morning will be  that it must have rained during  the night and filled your bucket  with rain water. There is no  indication even in the taste of  the crystal clear substance that  it will eventually cook down  into the rich brown syrup you  will enjoy on pancakes. The  sugar maple take 30 - 40 gallons  of sap to make one gallon of  finished syrup. Our big leaf  maples probably require SO - 60  gallons. Don't try evaporating  that much sap on your kitchen  stove or you'll end up with  dripping sticky walls like I did  the first year. Fire up your  barbeque or l.uild a fire  outside. Start cooking in the  morning and by evening the  syrup should be of a thick  enough consistency that you  could finish it off inside. Sap  should be rendered daily as it  goes sour in 48 hours. As the  sap thickens it must be watched  and stirred to prevent scorching. When it starts to foam,  cook for a minute or so longer.  The best syrup is a golden  brown colour. Cooking too  long will turn your syrup into  maple sugar when it cools. If  you are only tapping a few  trees, storage won't be a  problem but if you must bottle  it, sterilize your jars to prevent  spoilage. I have never had any  spoil but I rarely have any left  after a few weeks of non-stop  pancakes.  Tap trees that are 10 or more  inches in diameter. Three taps  may be put in a tree two feet or  more. After sapping fill the  holes with a wood plug and pull  out the nail. Never tap the same  hole twice. Other trees may be  tapped such as the alder tree. I  tried syrup from a butternut  tree and preferred the taste to  maple. The flavour was much  like apple jelly and didn't  require the' extensive boiling  time that maple does.  This may sound like a lot of  effort for the rewards but with a  few helpers and hot toddies all  around I guarantee its more  like fun.

On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  As previously stated in this  column, my father regarded  herring as the best type of  seafood. When I was a young  boy we lived between the  South and the North Alouette  Rivers just north of Haney  in the Fraser Valley. These  local rivers had a good variety  of fish but my father still  yearned for herring and ftom  time to time he would make a  trip to Vancouver where he  would obtain a supply of  kippered herring which he  would grill over hot coals  from green vine maple .which  he used for fuel in the kitchen  range.  It is because of this early  exposure to smoked herring  that I have had a life-long  liking for this tasty way of  preserving herring. In the  days before refrigeration,  pickling or smoking was the  only means of keeping herring  for future use.  During the latter part of  World War II while serving in  the Merchant Navy, one ship I  was on had a Scottish steward  and cook and they made sure  that breakfast included kippered herring. As J never  cared much for bacon and  eggs, kippers for breakfast  became my regular routine for  many years.  When we came to the  Sunshine Coast it was not too  easy to secure a regular  supply of the smoky morsels.  On making enquiries, the local  butcher said there was a chap  in the Pender Harbour area  who had learned how to smoke  fish in the 'old country'  manner and perhaps he would  be able to satisfy my strange  addiction. His name was John  Donley, and when I contacted  him by phone he assured me  that because Pender Harbour  had a good supply of large  herring he would be able to  smoke some for me from time  to time.  Dave McKay, an old time  fisherman in Gibsons, also  kept me supplied with fresh  herring on occasion. When I  had more than I could use  in the fresh state one time I  salted them down in a crock  and left them for about  24 hours.  I had no smoke house but  we did have a wood-fired  furnace and a low slope roof  which enabled me to get up  to the top of the chimney  where I removed the concrete  cap and replaced it with  a big wooden box which was  now fitted with wire mesh  shelves. This home-made  smoker enabled me to smoke  30 fat herring at a time over a  slow green alder fire in the  furnace. The air-tight heaters  that are becoming popular at  the present time would be  ideal for this purpose.  Smoked fish can be a  problem for the housewife  in regard to odour while  cooking. This is Chak-Chak's  method of cooking kippers.  1) Place fish in pan with a  tight fitting lid.  2) Boil water in a kettle  and pour over and cover  fish with boiling water,  replace lid and let stand for  about 10 minutes.  rv(A    Driftwood   9qq  Christmas Specials!  3) Drain off water and test  fish. If not done, repeat  process.  4) Do not over cook as this  will cause the bones to break  off and be hard to separate  from the meat.  Sea You.

Holiday Produce - Graham has asked me to urge  our customers to buy as many of the basic  produce items as possible from Friday the 19*h  on.  If you realize and accept that by now most of  your Christmas produce is already at the  wholesale or in our coolers, you will know that it  will be no fresher on Christmas Eve than it is now.  it's important to take note of this because  produce is an item people tend to put off buying  until the very last. This makes it literally  impossible to |udge requirements and either we  run out or vyi can't .put it out fast enough  A few items in particular that we urge people to  get irva bit early are Yams.

Ring in the New Year fit  by Bud Mulcaster  To get caught up for the last  couple of weeks, we took eight  teams to Old Orchard Lanes  for a rematch and to put it  mildly we got wiped. The only  one to bring back money was  George Langsford who. took  the high six game block with  a 1500+ score. George was  the only one to roll a 300+  game and he had two of them.  The rest of us bowled pretty  good but not good, enough I  guess. I don't know, I think  we'll ask for a recount.

No need to worry  now, that is, so long as I keep  terribly active and, oh yes,  flexible and warm, and laughing and talking - I'm a real  talker, but I'm no good by  myself. I have to have people  to get involved with, to push  and prod.  Oh no. Of course I don't  hurt anyone. We're terribly  careful, but we get really  steamed up on simple things.  The most ordinary of every  day things like growing taller  or shorter - or softer or firmer -  or rounder or flatter or thinner - Yes, we talk about diet  and water and walking.  There are simply dozens of  ways to walk. Did you ever try  walking lightly, on thin ice?  How did your tummy feel?  Oh well, OK. See you in  January. But don't eat too  much turkey stuffing. You'll  only have to take it off again.  Bye now. Call when you get  back. 885-5581 for classes at  Halfmoon Bay and at Gibsons.  Thanks to the Sunshine Coast  Women's Program. Watch for  the Continuing Education  flyer.  Ice or heat?  by RussHorbal(M.A.T.A.)  A question lhat the coach,  parent or athlete often faces is  "Do I put heat or cold on an  injury'.1" The simplest and safest  answer is "cold". Why'.'  When an injury occurs, the  hody reacts immediately to thc  injury hy increasing the blood  and body fluid in the area.  lt is this swelling and bleeding that causes the stiffness and  retards the athlete's return to  participation. If attending to an  injury it is wise to limit the  swelling and bleeding by applying ice, compression and  elevation (i.e.c.).  The ice causes the blood  vessels in the area to constrict  reducing the bleeding and  swelling. You may provide ice  in the forms of ice packs, snow.  cold   towels,   etc.   for   15-20  minutes on and 2 hours off.  Compression should be applied in the form of an elastic  bandage.  After 4K-72 hours, heat may  he applied to help promote the  circulation thus increasing the  flow of nutrients to the area  and carrying waste products  away. Remember, if in doubt  about the seriousness of an  injury���send the athlete to a  doctor for further examination.

It was snowing lightly as  Perse and I plodded slowly  along the forest trail which  would lead us to the Haslam  Creek cabin. Big snow flakes  were beginning to settle on  Ihe branches, forming an insulating blanket of soft down  which shut out all sounds of  .the outside world. The metallic click of a buckle on a rifle  barrel seemed almost an intrusion in the silence of this  white, magic world. It momentarily stopped the chatter of  fimall birds and animals as  {they sensed danger; then  would begin anew as the  danger passed.  As the low, fleecy clouds  loosed their flakey loads io a  slowly descending blanket,  it seemed to insulate us from  the cold sparkling air of the  'early dawn. Suddenly, I felt  warm. Loosening the collar  ot my wood shirt, I adjusted  ���Body temperature to the  moderating air and the warmth generated by the easy pace  Set by Perse.  Conversation between us  tras seldom necessary. I was  ijoo busy listening and learning . Now and then Perse  would point out a deer track  in the snow heading toward  i nearby meadow. He would  joint its direction, keeping me  oriented for the short trek 1  Was to make to shoot a deer  while he took Ted in the  Opposite direction to Haslam  Creek Canyon and away from  the sounds of my activities,  li takes years to train a tracking hound not to run deer,  jrown was not going to upset  ted's training by letting him  diink that deer were part of  our game plan.  I Now and then Ted would  cross our trail and stop for a  moment one foot in the air,  tail straight out like a pointer,  fjx a sad-eyed stare on Perse,  i  Chimney  ���s     Cleaning  & Maintenance  v   Phone 886-8187 _  as if to ask, "How're you doin'  old master?"  Perse would nod, then away  would go Ted, nose to the  ground, tail just a 'whippin'  the breeze as though beckoning; "stay close, old man -  look alive. We're gettin' into  lion country!"  There was just enough snow  on the ground to read signs of  small animal activities, but so  far, no sign of the big pug  marks of a night hunting  cougar. Perse had told me that  a hungry cat will travel up to  twenty five miles a night when  he is really on the hunt, unless  he has been lucky or cunning  enough to kill an ailing or  careless deer. They travel  a beat like a policeman, have  a territory to range over, and  will pass the same spot in his  rounds every eight to ten  days.  We had been walking  quietly for an hour or so,  listening to Ted's bell, his  occasional talk as he stuck his  nose into something interesting, then pausing to wait  while he investigated an old  spoor. It was during one of  these stops while rolling up a  smoke that Perse told me  about the bell.  "If it wasn't for that bell,  I wouldn't know where Ted  was working. I'm a bit deaf in  one ear, so by turning in a  circle 1 get a pretty good idea  where the old boy is. But that  bell works for him too.''  "One time some other  hunters and me were looking  for a cat that had killed a  dog and packed him off to eat  later. He probably buried  part of him somewhere but we  never found the carcass."  "Now, when a cat kills and  eats a dog, they will seldom  tree again if the dog is alone.  That's why there were four of  us on this trip. They discover  how easy it is to kill a dog  and they seem to acquire a  taste for the meat. It takes two  or more dogs to put a cat like  that up a tree." %  "They get pretty smart.  They'll lead a dog into a big  blowdown of timber, then  circle  around on  their  own  OCT Milt  Cleaning and Painting  COAST POWER CLEANING  885-9316  PLACING & FINISHING  /' 1770.1' ��� l'V,l\ Kit AYS ��� 1'I.OOItS    Ml Tm<""' ���nl' /'<���-'��.<  Itlt'XIi ir/O.V.i' ��� lilDHWALKS       liirliiiliuil (Wniinii m li/iuml  Call Any Time  885-2125  SERVING PENDER HARBOUR TO PORT MELLON  track and jump onto a windfall  just above the trail. When the  hound comes along with his  nose to the ground, they just  reach down with that old king  claw and open him up from  stem to gudgeon."  "You see, it's noise that  puts a cat up a tree. His lungs  are so small they can only run  a short distance without a test.  When the dog gets too close,  they run up a tree, rest on a  branch, then jump and run  again.- But once he gets  cornered and has to fight a  dog, the dog hasn't much  chance of coming out alive.  That's when they learn they  can kill a dog and they taste  good too."  "Well sir. On this hunt one  of the boys had an old wind-  sccnter along. He wasn't too  reliable 'cause now and then  he'd run a deer."  "We were hot on that cat's  track and the pack were  howling and baying up a  storm. But this dang wind-  scenter took off on a tangent  with his nose in the air,  sniffing like mad. This was  O.K. with me but he took old  Ted with him. I shouted and  whistled but he was gone.  There was nothin' for me to do  but follow!"  "We hadn't gone far when I  hear this bellerin' and kiyiing  like they were in a big fight.  My heart sank 'cause 1 knew  old Ted had the courage of a  lion - no pun intended, as they  say."  "Just before I got to them I  heard this big howl of pain and  it sounded like my Ted. I was  sick. But then I heard the bell  again, then only one bay.  I knew that voice and that he  was on the track again. I  shouted and ran as hard as  I could but by this time I'm  about ready to drop. But I  couldn't let the old man  down."  "A few minutes later I  heard Ted bugling and knew  that he had treed. When I got  there that dang'1 cat was  sittin' on a limb just out of  Ted's reach, his head cockin'  from one side to the other.  I swear he had no fear of the  dog - he was just curious  about that tinklin' nojse  coming from underneath that  trumpet-like cavity a'buglin'  up at him."  to be continued  Christmas  reminder  Cost of mailing a Christmas  card to a Canadian or United  States address is 15 cents.

Christmas cards at the 15  cent rate are to be sealed  but the written message on  the card must be five words  must also be sealed and carry  17 cents postage.  Cards being sent to international destinations at the  first class rate of 35 cents must  be sealed but cards sent at  the third class rate of 27  cents must be unsealed.  hy Michael J. Nozlnsld  An independent appointed  body of B.C. residents, the  Human Rights Commission's  primary role is one of public  education and the encouragement of basic human decency.  The Commission has several  on-going committees and can  convene a special task force  when necessary.  The Current Issues and  Special Projects Committee  looks into the problems of immediate concern to British  Columbians. This group is, for  example, exploring the question of compulsory retirement  and whether or not our  children inadvertently learn  discrimination from text books  which entirely leave out  certain minorities.  Attempting to reach children and adults alike, the  Educational Committee offers  a full program of speakers,  audio-visual presentations and  multi-lingual pamphlets to  schools and other organizations.  Since no Code of Rights is  completely flawless or fully  capable of anticipating a  society's changing mores, a  Legislation Review Committee  is charged with recommending changes. While physical  disability is, in a lateral way,  covered by the code, it is not  specifically mentioned and  there is growing agitation to  change this. The Legislation  Committee has been active in  this question and has pondered the question of discrimination based on a person's sexual orientation.  The Human Rights Commission vigorously encourages  public input and participation.  Interested groups or individuals are welcome to attend  its public hearings and are  invited to submit written  briefs.  Surely one of the most  fundamental human rights  is   that   of  equality  of  op  portunity, and here the  literature is both extensive  and specific. Beginning with  the job offering, The B.C.  Human Rights Code "prohibits advertisements from  making any reference to race,  religion, colour, sex, marital  status, age, ancestry or place  of origin." Nor may an  employer even request information concerning these matters or political beliefs during  a pre-employment interview.  Some of these topics may, for  medical or personnel reasons,  be discussed after an applicant has been hired. If a  person is physically handicapped, he or she may not be  refused employment unless  the handicap would directly  affect the job under consideration, and an employer  may not refuse to hire someone because of a criminal  conviction which is "unrelated  to the job".  The above "characteristics" also have no place in the  evaluation of an employee  for a promotion and it is  likewise unlawful for a trade  union or business association  to discriminate in its membership practices.  Since these hieroglyphs are  at best only a summary of a  summary, it is recommended  that the particularly interested  employer or employee secure  and   study    the    literature.  Any coastal resident currently seeking employment is  well advised to visit the  Sechelt Manpower Centre  where a small but courteous  and knowledgeable staff can  help with job offerings, career  guidance and apprenticeship  programs etc. Government  employees might consult a  1636... job listing usually  available at the post office,  and anyone can flip to the back  pages of the slightly special  coastal publication now in  hand.  A wide range of additional  information, including the  commendable "Human Rights  in B.C." is available from  the Human Rights Commission; 6th Floor, 880 Douglass St; Victoria, B.C; V8W  2B7.

Gibsons  ���anstortation and Babysitting available Phone886-7426  In  Christ's  service  by Rev. George W. Inglis  Some things never seem to  change much in the church -  such as the matter of adhering  faithfully to the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19, to  go into all the world and preach  the gospel unto every creature.  It seems a simple enough  injunction issued, as it was, by  the risen Christ and mandated  to all believers, without exception, but even before the ink  was dry on the first copy of the  Gospel According to St. Matthew, believers were finding all  sorts of ways to water down the  impact of this message, and  turning to methods of circumventing its clear and unmis-  take-command.  First it was the Jews themselves, who founded the Christian church, but quickly became overwhelmed in numbers  by the Gentiles, most of whom  were followers of the Greek  culture.  This caused what was probably the first major schism in  what was then a mission  church, as the Jews claimed  that no one could become a  Christian unless he first embraced the Jewish faith, in as  far as circumcision, food laws,  purification and worship were  concerned.  This problem was battled  vigorously by the apostle Paul,  the great missionary to the  Gentiles, and a towering figure  in the Christian church's faith-  history.  Following this first schism,  there were many others in the  1500-odd years between  Christ's ministry on earth and  the great Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, but  most of them were based on  theology or ecclesiastical differences, and the church's  mission role was largely confined to establishing churches,  rather than to mission outreach.  lt was the Moravian Pietists,  feBwever, who got into the  mission field heavily as an arm  of Protestant outreach, while  the longer-established Roman  Catholic was still practicing its  policy of territorial mission,  establishing the structured  church wherever its missionaries pioneered.  The Moravian, coming from  a small village in Saxony  named Herrnhuth, were the  result of an experiment in New  Testament living, and were  most impressive in their courageous and unselfish mission  work, so much so that they  were a great influence on the  great John Wesley himself, and  contributed largely to his own  reclamation of his personal  faith at a time when he needed  spiritual re-awakening sorely.  If they lacked anything in  their missionary work, it might  have been cultural humility,  Missionaries must  preach by example  and this may very well have  been the missionaries' Achilles  heel.  It would be sheer nonsense to  apply any rule to all missionaries, because by and large they  were unique individuals who  had received God's call to  minister more powerfully than  their fellow men and women,  but it is regrettable that this  cultural arrogance was an  impedance to the full propagation of God's Word in many  corners of the globe.  Roman Catholic and Protestant alike, far too many of these  wonderful people, humble and  self-sacrificial by every standard of western and continental  civilization, were nevertheless  inclined to measure standards  of Christian behavior by a  cultural ruler, rather than a  spiritual ruler.  As a result, many missionaries of the Nth century in  particular, busied themselves  with such problems as putting  shoes and "civilized" clothing  on beautiful native people of  various climes, and teaching  them a set of standards and  morals which conformed with  their own cultural standards,  rather than with the biblical  standards, under whose commission they were called.  In far too many instances,  simple natives who accepted  the "mission culture" became  disoriented and alien to their  own people, yet not accepted  into the culture of the missionaries' countries of origin.  Thie created a regrettable  situation for those who accepted the call of the missionaries  to a life of loving purpose and  promise, and found themselves  in reality a kind of outcast,  accepted by no one.  As Canadians, we should be  poignantly aware of this anomaly, particularly since we  have native Indians, Metis,  Inuit and native Eskimos, and  shades of each, who have come  to know the feeling of being  unaccepted in the land where  they have lived for centuries.  There is still a need for  missionaries to go out into  faraway places, but there is an  even more vital need for  missionaries to carry the news  of the gospel throughout our  own land, where people are  becoming confused and disenchanted with the Christian  message, especially in the  dismetrically different manner  in which it is depicted from its  original source, in so many  instances.  Maybe it is time for missionaries to reflect before going  out into the field, on the  manner which Jesus employed  so effectively, preaching by  example.  It is time for all of us to  realize that the world is  becoming more sophisticated  in its knowledge of material  matters, and abysmally ignorant of spiritual matters.  Hence the biblical caution  "For what does it profit a man  to gain the whole world and  forfeit his life?" (Mark 8:36)  becomes more and more ger-  maine as a target for missionaries, and the implementation of  the teaching becomes viable  only if it is backed up by  example.  We need not think that any  of us are immune from the task,  either, since each one of us who  believes in Jesus Christ as our  Lord and Saviour is automatically a candidate for the  mission field - his or her first  task is to discover what field  they will serve in, not if they  should serve!  And the message that we are  all asked to deliver is one of  love - a practical, viable love  which emphasizes the importance of the spiritual needs,  while not ignoring the physical  needs.  And the most effective way  to teach is by example!

Downtown designation  Continued from Page One  ��� Favourable loans will be available to Gibsons to finance up to 75  per cent of the cost of revitalization improvements in the  downtown area. To become eligible for the loan funds, the  municipality must establish a specified area, in accordance with  the applicable clauses of the Municipal Act. Property owners in a  specified area can be levied for public works. If the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs deems Gibsons' downtown to possess special  characteristics, even more generous financial assistance is  available.  Upon application from Gibsons the Ministry of Municipal  Affairs may advance up to $15,000 or if its downtown is deemed  unique. $30,000 for producing an overall design and estimating  the cost of improvements. This concept and costing would be  used in the process leading to the creation ofthe specified area.  To encourage private property owners within the specified area  to upgrade or repair the exterior of their buildings, money will be  available in the form of a grant, 20 percent of the cost of making  these improvements up to a limit of $200 per meter of ground  floor frontage. The improvements must be a part of a Council  approved design or promotional scheme.  Under the authority of Bill 7, the 1980 Special Funds Act, a $25  million fund was created to support the Downtown Revitalization  Program.  Mr. Vander Zalm said that many B.C. municipalities had  applied for designation under the Downtown Revitalization  Program. He was hopeful that the enthusiasm of supporters ofthe  Program continued to the point of realization of their projects.  "The success of the Program ultimately rests with the efforts of  the citizens of interested municipalities and not with the financial  resources of the,(Provincial Government," the Minister  commented." .    ,,,,  Owner offers to sell  Park possible  at Creek mouth  The regional board has not given up hope of acquiring the land  west of the mouth of Roberts Creek for a park. Though the  property has been sold recently, board Chairman David Hunter  informed directors at Thursday night's meeting that the new  owner has already been in touch with the regional district offering  to sell the property.  Several directors at the meeting expressed doubts that the  property is suitable for a building site, particularly in view of the  Coast-Garibaldi Union Board of Health's septic tank setback  regulations, which call for a septic tank to be set 100 feet back  from a watercourse or foreshore. Director Joe Harrison moved  that no building permit be issued for the site unless it conforms  with all such regulations.  Gibsons Mayor Lorraine Goddard, who chairs the Union  Board of Health, pointed out that only that morning the Board of  Health had granted three exceptions to the 100 foot rule on the  recommendations of Health Inspector Barry Willoughby, none of  which involved the property in question.  The regional board is waiting to hear from the Provincial  government concerning the possibility of selling several Crown  lots on Crowe Road to finance the purchase of the Creek-mouth  property and Mackenzie MLA Don Lockstead hasalso written to  the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing requesting the  Ministry to state its views regarding the possibility of acquiring  the property for a park.

Perhaps you have decided to  take a trip to Mexico or  Hawaii? If so, have a wonderful holiday, but do watch out  for Traveller's Diarrhea.  To avoid diarrhea:  1) Boil all water or use Hala-  zone�� tablets to purify all  the water you use.  2) Eai fmits that you can peel  yourself.  3) Eat well cooked foods that  have recently been prepared.  If diarrhea does strike it is  characterized by frequent  watery stools and at least one  or more symptoms such as  nausea, vomiting, abdominal  cramps, headache, lack of  energy and fever.  Traveller's diarrhea is usually caused by bacteria attacking the lining of the intestine.  This interferes with water and  salt re-absorption resulting in  diarrhea.  Things you can do when you  have diarrhea:  1) Use an absorbent such as  kaolin or pectin (Kao-pec-  tate�� ) at the recommended  dosage.  2) Drink water or replenish  fluids lost.  3) If diarrhea continues  consult with a physician.  There are several prescription  drugs that can be used for  persistent diarrhea. Aloha!  Going Out of Business  Campbell's Variety Ltd., Teredo Square, Sechelt  is going out of business.

Newspaper chain controls  department store chain  The Thomson organization  should be told it can keep its  newspaper chain or its department store chain but not  both. New Democratic Party  consumer affairs critic Ray  Skelly said today.  Releasing the NDP brief to  the Kent Royal commission on  newspaper concentration,  Skelly said department store  advertising is critical to the  finances of any newspaper.  "In 1979 the Thomson organization bought the Hudson's Bay Company for $640  million and acquired a total of  630 stores," he pointed out. "In  1980 they bought FP Publications, the second biggest  newspaper chain in Canada."  He asked: "How can any of  the 40 cities with Thomson  newspapers expect to have fair  competition for any of the  media, let alone for someone  starting a competitive newspaper, when the Thomson  organization also directly  controls the retail advertising  of The Bay, Simpsons, Zellers,  Shop-Rite, Fields and has a  minority interest in Simpsons-  Sears?"  Skelly, MP for Comox-  Powell River, said no matter  how impeccably the Thomson-  owned retailers behave they  will be accused of a conflict of  interest in favour of their own  newspaper.  "For example, the new  Winnipeg Sun has not been  attracting department store  advertising. Skelly said. "Who  can tell, in absolute certainty,  what the motives of Thomson-  owned stores are towards first  the non-Thomson Sun and  second the Thomson Free  Press? Yet these attitudes are  vital if Winnipeg is to have a  competing newspaper."  In his brief the the commission, Skelly also recommended:  1) the federal Bureau of  Competition Policy include a  newspaper agency with a  comprehensive new policy on  newspaper mergers to monitor  all ownership changes; 2) the  new agency study present  ownerships to determine whether newspaper chains serve  useful public purposes and  determine if any of them should  be broken up; 3) that the  Canada Council expand its  present publications support  program to include newspapers  to the prospect of grants and  loans being extended to newspaper ventures; 4) that the  Canada Council commission  studies of press performance  FRAMED.  CUTS  BEUELLED  MIRRORS  Trcal your homo  for Christmas!  and support local endeavours  to improve press performance  through press councils.  "The Thomson situation  points to the inadequacy of  Canadian competition policy  as it effects all industry," Skelly  said.  rK  Our  Christmas Present  To You  |L Reduction  ��� off our prevailing  Loan Rate  Guaranteed on Loans for New Cars  and Trucks for the Month of  December  That's  My  Credit  Union!

The first day I was  ravenous and could have eaten  a decomposed horse but the  second day the pangs of hunger  had abated somewhat and a  feeling of torpor had set in.  Now on the third day, whether  it was due to the large wad of  snoose 1 had under my lower lip  1 don't know, but 1 felt dizzy  and lightheaded, not drunk  exactly, but with a kind of  detached feeling and not fully  conscious of what 1 was doing  or where I was going. However  1 was painfully aware that my  feet were not only wet but  freezing cold as the boots I was  wearing (rubber with leather  tops) had started to come  apart.     ,  The light was fading rapidly  as it was now after 4:30 p.m.  During the afternoon I had  passed several isolated farm  houses and I began to regret  that I hadn't sought shelter for  the night in one of their  adjoining barns. Now; however, just ahead was a large  frame building that turned out  to be a hotel or rather, as a large  sign proclaimed at the road,  "The Greenwood Inn" and  underneath in smaller letters  "Tourists Welcome". I could  hardly be described as a tourist  and, while I certainly was in no  mood for laughing, yet the  irony of it penetrated my  numbness and without even  thinking of what I was doing or  what I was going to say 1 turned  in at the lane entrance. There  was no light at the front so I  went around the back and the  first thing I noticed was a small  mountain of firewood out in  the adjacent yard. There must  have been eight or ten cords of  it lying there just as it had been  thrown off a truck or sleigh.  Although I had accepted meals  in various mission houses I had  never before screwed up e-  nough courage to go to a  backdooi and ask for a handout, but this unsplit wood  provided me with a needed  excuse. Without hesitation I  mounted the steps of the  verandah and rapped on the  backdoor.  In a few moments the door  was opened by a large, fat  woman whose beaming face  was moist with perspiration  and even although the kitchen  was away down the hall, the  most tantalizing aroma emanated from it. It was only too  evident that supper was being  prepared and from the delicious smells of it, it had to be  chicken! Just what I said I  cannot remember but it was  something to the effect that 1  was hungry and that I had  noticed the huge pile of wood  from  the  road (this was a  Drummond Insurance  will be  jSS�� D"  CLOSED  Dec. 22nd - Jan. 5th  For service please call  Mrs   Sylvia Maclean: 886-2597  For Claims please call  Mr. John Parsons: 885-3519  Thank You  Season's Greetings to All!  Jim, Donna & Sylvia  damned lie as it was not even  visible from there) and I  wondered if perhaps they  needed it split, that I was young  and strong (another lie as I felt  as weak as a kitten) and I would  be only too willing to work in  exchange for a meal. I babbled  on until, still with a beaming  smile on her good-natured face,  the lady motioned me to enter.  Explaining that she was his  cook/housekeeper, she introduced herself as Mrs. Saunders  and the owner of the Inn as a  Mr. James Rooney, who unfortunately was out at the moment  having gone to town but could  be expected back at any time.  She led me to the kitchen where  there was a young woman  nursing a baby. She .was Mr.  Rooney's daughter Sybil and at  the table, doing his homework,  was his teenaged son "Young  Jimmy".  A little later the Boss arrived  home. He was a huge bear of a  man with a ready smile and a  quick Irish wit and, like his  housekeeper, fairly radiated  good humour. He asked me a  few questions and, although he  did not at that stage commit  himself to saying he needed a  man to help him, he made it  very clear I was welcome not  only to stay for supper but that  they could put me up for the  night, lt seemed like an eternity  to me before supper was put on  the table. 1 had been right, it  was chicken stew and dumplings but now comes the sad  part of the story. I ate so damn  much of it, two or three  helpings I am sure, when  suddenly a feeling of terrible  nausea overtook me and it was  all I could do to leave the table,  rush outside the heave it all up.  I was yet unacquainted with the  fact that after a long spell  without eating one should take  it easy and soft pedal awhile till  one's system readjusts itself to  food.  Needless to relate 1 was  extremely embarrassed, but  these kind people seemed to  understand and in no time at all  I was in a warm bed upstairs  and, just as I was about to doze  off, "Little Jimmy" after  rapping on the door, brought  me a large glass of hot milk  liberally laced with brandy.  Gratefully I sipped it and I  couldn't help but think of the  story of the Good Samaritan.  Rare they might be, but  incontrovertibly there were still  some around!  Is this any  to run a railroad?  way  bv John Shaske  Today in Canada we live  with expensive, depleting energy and deficit budgeting. With  government attempting to  reduce our dependency on  foreign oil and also reduce the  deficit, they have almost overlooked one important option,  the passenger train.  According to a paper written  by Walter Stewart, "Is This  Any Way to Run A Railroad",  the author states that one  gallon of fuel can provide one  thousand seat miles in a train  filled to capacity with passengers. This is compared to eight  hundred in a bus, two hundred  and twenty-five in a car, and a  poor one hundred and twelve in  a jet aircraft.  While Japan and countries in  Europe are Irying to develop  and modernize their train  systems, wc continue to pour  money inlo roads and air  travel.  According to Statistics Canada, thc government will be  spending Iwo point seventy-  three billion dollars above the  amount of money collected  from road taxes in Canada.  In 1977-78, the latest figures  obtained from Ihe Federal Air  Transport was a loss of Ihree  hundred and eighty, million  dollars, with a five hundred and  ten million dollar budget. The  Air Transport figures are  difficult to obtain because the  airport buildings fall into one  category (government institutional buildings), the runways  under another category, etc.  Where does this leave the  railways? They pay for everything. Every tie, bolt, spike and  light on the line is paid for by  the rail company. In 1979, VIA  received a subsidy of two  hundred and sixty-five million  dollars.  What can be done?  (1) If the government is  irying lo make Canada energy  self sufficient, trains must be  utilized. Railways should receive more than the fifteen percent  allotted for transportation  research to further develop new  ideas.  (2) Utilize what we have now  to capacity. For example, the  road between Whistler and  Vancouver needs to be expanded because of increased traffic  demands caused by people  using the new Whistler facilities. Instead of making a four  lane highway, the government  could utilize the B.C. Rail  facilities. The Royal Hudson's  passenger coaches with a  lounge car and two diesei  engines could be used on a  daily excursion run from  Vancouver to Whistler. (The  Royal Hudson's engine was  buill for speed and would have  trouble making the 2.2% grade  north of Squamish). The  engines if purchased just for  this purpose would cost much  less than il would to upgrade  highway 99. These engines  could be assigned to other jobs  when traffic decreases in the  spring time.  (3) Give VIA more money  with which to buy more  modern equipment. The present equipment on the line is up  to thirty years old.  (4) Encourage utilization of  airplanes for long distance  travel, over one thousand km,  and use trains and buses for  shorter distances as they are thc  most energy efficient forms of  transportation.  In the book "Railway Game"  J.I.. Lukasiewicz calculates  that modern efficient railways  could save 14% of all thc oil  used by Canadians in inter-city  travel.  Is there any hope?  Since thc takeover ol passenger trains by VIA, the service is  improving. The on-board service personnel maintain high  standards of services including  cleaning, food preparation,  and entertainment. Everything  on board is neat and tidy. The  dining car has an adequate  wine list to accompany the  tasly. reasonably priced food.  m  Nature givei  to every time and season  some beauties  of its own...  Merry Christmas  from the Staff of  Games of all types are available  and passengers may use ihem at  any time. Bingo is played each  night and winners receive VIA  token prizes.  With the extremely heavy  construction of double tracking, and an over abundance of  freight. Ihe trains do run late  occasionally. Although the new  and slower schedule reflects the  fact that all trains must wait for  these delays, people can now  enjoy viewing thc Rockies  during the day time. The new  travelling schedule makes lor  better connections for further  travel as well.  With other countries going  ahead with their rail expansion  policies, we would be side to do  the same thing. Wiih a good  national transportation policy.  Canada can once again have an  energy conserving, plus extremely pleasurable, method of  travel.  .Mill,  Register Now  at  capilano College  see Peoae e  Urtwii  nverstifthisbu>k.Uv  ;i wealth of infimiBrtitm m  vv(��rld'sn!destim{iimist(li'|X'iHliil)k't')u')��\  ��� Krec heal fmmilte sun.  ailartopicinviKinable.

It draws three feet  of water and protrudes 18  inches above the surface. In  past tests the material used  was a fire resistant fabric,  but this was found to be  unsuitable, as it collapsed  while under tow. The metal  one is expected to be usable  85% of the time and it is  hoped that there will be a 95%  burn off.  The trials at Avalon were  carried out inside a Bennett  Boom as a safety precaution.  After the enclosed oil was  ignited, eight 45 gallon drums  of Alberta crude were steadily  pumped into the boom.  Alberta crude is similar to the  oil found in the north, both  have a high sulphur content.  Divers from Environment  Sciences Ltd. took water  samples before and after the  burn. These samples will be  examined for any variance.  Instruments also measured  the temperatures of the metal,  the water and the flames.  At 1500 deg. F the equipment  Once alight, a steady stream of oil is pumped into thc boom while tests are run.  An experimental oil, fire  containment boom was tested  at the Avalon Sorting Grounds  near Port Mellon last Friday.  On hand were observers from  the Canadian Coast Guard,  Environment Canada and  Fisheries and Oceans.  Dome Petroleum and Consulting engineer Ian McAllister from Vancouver carried  out tests on a new type of  metal boom. When the trials  are completed, if found to be  satisfactory, booms of this  style will be kept at base  camps in the Arctic and will  be used to contain and bum  oil in the event of a blow out.  In the past, tests on polar  animals and on-site trials in  the high Arctic have shown  that the northern ecosystem  has a very slow recovery  rate if damaged. Remoteness,  topography and soil types are  barriers to land fill recovery  methods and Dome hopes to  find that although burning  will pollute the atmosphere, it  will be less damaging than  other types of disposal.  The containment boom is  Traffic increase seen  By-pass start  sought soon  Regional Board Chairman David Hunter has written to  Highways Minister Alex Fraser requesting that the Ministry's  budget allocations for 1981 include funds to begin work on Phase  I ofthe Gibsons by-pass. Phase I provides for the balance of ferry  traffic to be routed around the narrow winding initial miles ofthe  Sunshine Coast Highway and the lower village, with access via  Stewart and North Road.  In his letter Hunter points out that B.C. Ferries' plans for ferry  allocations and load projections for 1981 and 1982 indicate that  much heavier volumes of traffic will be using the Sunshine Coast  Highway, possibly as many as "200 car equivalents" off-loaded at  Langdale each hour in 1981 and the occasional 400 car equivalent  load in 1982.  Hunter stressed that the increase in traffic on present routes  from the Langdale terminal (North Road and Highway 101), both  of which have narrow shoulderless stretches involving steep  grades and switchback corners, can only result in an increase in  motor vehicle accidents and incidents involving large commercial  trucks.

Interesting week with such  fast changes in temperature;  with overnight lows going  from  -7.0 C on  Sunday to  melted, but the engineers felt  that they had the necessary  information before the failure.  This is the first .time experiments of this kind have  been carried out and researchers hope that the results  will help to moderate any  damage incurred during an  Arctic oil spill.

Well it's time again for the  Christmas bird count. Last  year was the first time that  such a count was organized, so  it'll be interesting to compare  the results.  I've included a map of the  area, so if you're interested in  helping out, give Vince  Bracewell a call at 886-7720  and he'll gladly designate you  an area. If you can't or don't  feel like tramping about in the  bush, you can still help by  sitting at your window with a  hot cup of whatever and  counting the birds at your  feeder.  This year it's being held on  I December 21st. Birds spotted  j three days on either side of  i this date can be included.  A word to the wise. I'm  doing the same area as I did  last year, the shoreline from  Langdale to the bluff at  Gibsons. Unlike last year,  I've had a look at the tide  tables and noted that low  tide is at eleven in the morning. With this little bit of  foresight I hope io avoid my  1979 performance when I  ended up looking like an  emaciated, gum-shoed tarzan  spending most of my time in  the trees trying to avoid  whitecaps.  Counts similar to our local  one take place all over North  and South America.. The  results give a good indication  of bird populations and it's  one area where the .layman  can help out in a practical way,  so give Vince a call and give us  a hand.  Hopefuls.  Last year there were no  unusual species noted in the  bird count, but there have  been a few weirdies seen  recently in Lower B.C. Last  week 20 cattle egrets were  seen at Boundary Bay and  closer to home we've had  reports of an eastern. blue  jay in Sechelt. Wayne Diakow  is going to do a bit of owling,  so it would be. good to have a  few of them included.  Oil burning.  I spent last Friday at Avalon  sorting grounds at Port Mellon  watching an oil burning  experiment. This was being  conducted for Dome Petroleum and they were testing  out a new style of containment  boom which would enable  them to burn .oil at the well-  , site in their Arctic operations.  From talking with the  experts on hand, they are  hoping this will be the lesser  of the two evils in the event  of a spill. Looking at the  amount of black smoke e-  mitted by the flames, it will  be an evil, but J suppose there  is a better chance of the  environment being able to  handle the pollution as smoke  rather than having vast  amounts of crude slopping  about in the slow-regenerating  Arctic Ocean.  In any event, let's hope that  it never goes beyond the test  stages. The northern regions  of this country have very little  resilience and any damage is  virtually permanent.  Elk on Gambler?  Has anyone else heard  reports of elk on Gambier  Island?  The first time I heard about  this was a couple of weeks  ago. I happened to mention it  to the conservation officer.  The person who had just left  his office as I walked in had  been talking about the same  thing.  There were some elk released at McNab Creek years  ago and although they disappeared from that area,  rumours are coming down that  some of them may have  survived and moved on to the  island. It could be that the  rumours have stemmed from  people seeing extra large deer  tracks, or tracks that were enlarged by rain and what have  you. If there have been any  positive identifications I'd be  interested in hearing about  them.  Christmas presents.  There was an interesting  interview with the Vancouver  S.P.C.A. recently. In it the  public was . warned against  getting too caught up in the  spirit of the season (I didn't  want to use the word Christmas again, the typesetter  has set the word about .a  million   times   this   week)  _���----���*������������ ���������������-���-  Coast News, December 16, 1980  and placing a cuddly little  puppy or kitten under the tree.  In many cases the animal is  the centre of attention for a  few days, then interest declines and the animal ends up  back at the pound. It may spoil  the element, of surprise to  run a check to see if the  animal will be cared for, but  in the long run, continued care  is more important than a few  minutes of excitement.  That's all for the moment,  I'm off to look out my gum  boots and binoculars for  Sunday's count. I hope that  many of you can join us..

BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  (Editor's Note: The lollowing series ol articles were written by Mr. Dennis Shultleworth, a practicing  engineer who now lives in Davis Bay. Alter retiring (rom the Royal Canadian Navy in 1970, he chose the  Sunshine Coast on which to settle. Thischoice was made after extensively studying possible locations Irom  throughout the world. Mr. Shuttleworth's findings coupled with his refreshing "engineer's" point of view are  as pertinent today as (hey were in 1970. Anyone wishing a reprint of this series in ils entirety may obtain a  copy at Anderson Realty, Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.)  The shape o( the lot is of critical importance, as is the direction of its access. Lots  come in all shapes and sizes from squares to rhomboids, and rectangles to  promontorys. Almost invariably, the shape decides the direction of the approach and  this, in turn, affects the design o( the house planned for the lot.  Corner lots are usually taxed more than single frontage lots, as the amount of  frontage fixes the amount to be charged for services (for example a very long narrow  Regional District against a circular one). Even lots of identical size can be taxed  differently, as is apparent if you consider a lot of 200' x 100'. If you place the 200' side to  the road, just watch your neighbor, if his 100' side to the road is taxed at the same rate.  The survey and legal aspects are beyond the intent of this article. The best advice is  to retain professionals in the field, and do not substitute amateurs, regardless of their  enthusiasm. This leaves you with only D.L.S. surveyors, solicitors, and notaries  public.  Not beyond you, is your right to insist upon a conditional clause being written into  any agreement to purchaser, that the offer is subject to the purchaser being able to  obtain a permit to build a sewage system and/or a building permit, which will not be  issued without the Health permit.  Do not accept real estate salesmen's "it has been percolation tested" as meaning a  thing. A lot of people say, "I sat for my B.A. finals." In both cases the result is the  crunch question, and in this instance, the result is the health inspector's permit to  proceed with construction of the sewage system. If the salesman has the permit (and  it is valid for six months only), you should be safe. Without it, insist upon the additional  clause. If further information is required, it is available from the Health Unit at  Gibsons (886-2228) or from the Regional District office (885-2261) where you may  save yourself thousands of dollars if you will ask before you sign. In Sechelt, the  number is 885-2043. Many things in government are pure red tape, but not this,  though I may be biased. Perhaps the best solution to prevent well intentioned buyers  from becoming stuck with useless lots would be for the Regional District to pass a  bylaw prohibiting Ihe sale of lots without a health permit, and the only way to do that is  to phone your councillor and ask if the authority exists for such a bylaw. If it does, let  us have it, lor Ihe common good. Nexl let us deal with simple science applied to house  design.
