Array Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  89.8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast 25'per copy on news stands     December 19, 1988    Volume 42    Issue 51 Coast News, December 19,1988  Little acid rain  There was heartening and reassuring news last week  from Sunshine Coast Forest District Manager Barry Constance. There is no acid rain problem here, at least from  the forestry point of view, he says.  That information should make local residents a lot happier, especially since a large number of dead and dying  young trees in local forest had given rise to fears of acid  rain damage.  Reassuring, too, is the information about the federal  government's Acid Rain National Early Warning System  (ARNEWS) which keeps an eye on the acid rain problem.  It is especially heartening to note there are acid rain forest  test plots in the vicinity of the two Sunshine Coast pulp  mills....Powell River and Port Mellon.  It is good to know a federal agency is keeping an eye on  at least this facet of air pollution in the local area. This is,  no doubt, money well spent.  Sunshine Coast residents musl be especially pleased with  the information that acid rain pollutants in the air in the  local area remain miniscule, and that our forests are in no  danger al all from this direction.  The foresters note that much of the air we breath is  clean and fresh from the endless leagues of Pacific Ocean  to the west of us. Clean air is certainly a huge asset for any  area in this day and age.  Not only is clean air a great asset to local communities  and propety owners, it should be a great selling point for  the local economy. Our clean sea air should be emphasized  as a great attraction of the local tourist trade, as well as an  important point for consideration when all types of enterprises are seeking desirable locations.  Not only have we found that the large number of local  area tree deaths are only due to several successive dry  seasons, we've also been reminded of one of the wonderful  amenities we all enjoy each and every day.  Postcard images  One of the small things that contribute to a healthy  tourist industry is a readily available supply of fine, attractive and varied local postcards in retail and accommodation establishments catering to the tourist trade. Such  cards help to spread an area's image as a tourist attraction.  If there is a good range of such cards available for the  Sunshine Coast's many and varied scenic wonders and  water sports, such a range of postcards isn't evident in  local stores.  Regional and local tourism promoters could usefully  look into this matter. If a good selection of attractive local  picture postcards could be encouraged somehow, it would  be a substantial asset to the Sunshine Coast tourist industry.  5 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Regional Disrlct Board decided to  shelve for 10 years the proposed development of a third  water zone level above 400 feet. The $10 million project  was postponed because of a slow down in property  development and a growing inventory of 2,800  undeveloped lots on the Sunshine Coast.  Canadian Forest Products Ltd. approved its 1984  business plan. This included the Installation and start up  of a new pulp machine in storage since 1981 because of  an economic slow down.  10 YEARS AQO  The Port Mellon Credit Union has petitioned the  Supreme Court of B.C. to nullify a decision made by the  Superintendent of B.C. Credit Unions, allowing the Sunshine Coast Credit Union of Sechelt to open a branch In  the Gibsons district.  A van belonging to Lief Pederson went out of control  when It hit a black ice patch on Highway 101 at Powell  Road. The driver-owner was unhurt but his passenger  was hospitalized.  20 YEARS AQO  Linda Price was selected as Elphinstone Secondary  School queen from among grade 11 and 12 pupils. Her  two princesses are Rose Hanuse and Colleen Husby.  Premier Bennett's Christmas message: "For British  Columbians 1968 has been a year of progress; a year of  accomplishments which give us ample reason for confidence In our future prospects here at home!"  30 YEARS AGO  In the election held at Sechelt, December 11 two councillors were elected for a two year term. They are Norman  G. Burley and Lauritz Hansen.  While playing crib, Mrs. Ada Farnham came up with a  28 hand with four fives and a king showing on the deck. It  doesn't happen to every crib player.  40 YEARS AGO  A musical evening was held at the home of Mrs. Reid  of Wilson Creek. There was a fine local turnout and also  visitors from adjacent districts, Including Mr. and Mrs.  W.A. Morrison and Mr. and Mrs. Willows of Sechelt.  The Department of Public Works has commenced  repairs on Peninsula Road. The fact was established by  the sight of five trucks which started dumping gravel on  the highway between Sechelt and Wilson Creek.  The Sunshine  iiiif iiwi  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

Countdown to Christmas  by Pastor Calvin Mclver  Calvary Baptist Church  It seems reasonable to assume  that most of us are involved in a  similar exercise this next week,  counting the days until  Christmas.  For some that means joyful  anticipation and for some a  great sigh of relief.  No matter what Christmas  means to us, there is a certain  magic that captivates us during  this season. One of the exciting  aspects of any holiday celebration is getting ready for the  'main event'.  Amid all the hectic and exciting preparations it is possible  to miss the very reason for the  season. Could it be in the countdown prior to launch we will  have lost the importance of the  mission itself?  Surprisingly that seemed to  be the case at the first Christmas  nearly 2000 years ago. Very few  people knew the significance of  that 'greatest mission' which  marked the center of history.  As you count down to  Christmas day I invite you to  take a backward glance at some  of the central characters involved in that first Christmas, and  how they reacted.  One of the more obscure  characters is the innkeeper of  the 'Bethlehem travelodge'. He  seems to get a lot of bad press,  often portrayed as a mean and  nasty ogre.  That's unfortunate, for he  probably was a good and efficient businessman trying to  make a decent living. After all,  with that big convention in  town, he could stand to make a  few extra shekels from the  delegates even if they were  rowdy.  Besides, this poor peasant  from Nazareth with his very  pregnant wife didn't look like  the type to carry an American  Express card. But, unknowingly  and sadly, he missed having a  part in history's greatest event,  the arrival of the Son of God to  this planet.  So often, 'busyness', efficiency and preoccupation of our  daily routine can do that. When  well-meaning people doing normal and good things are too involved, they can miss what is  essential and end up the poorer  for it.  Of course, there were the  shepherds on the hills outside  Bethlehem. That first Christmas  night'no doubt found them  relaxing after a hard day's grind  at a thankless and low paying  job.  Following a warm meal some  sat around the fire resting their  aching feet, with some already  settled down for the night.  Afler all, they deserved a decent  sleep for morning came early.  Then came thai ear splitting  interruption and those strange  messengers with a stranger  message.  'What? Go lo Bethlehem on  a night like this, just when we  were falling off to sleep?  Thanks for the invite, but we've  got responsibilities and would  sooner not get involved. Why  . don't you call the Rabbi? Or  notify the Bethlehem Herald?  We'll check it out in the morning.'  They could have said that to  the angels. But no, they not only wanted to hear the good  news, but wanted to see first  hand, 'one born this night, a  savior for all people'.  I suspect that many of us find  it easier to view Christmas at a  distance. You know, throw  around some 'good will', send a  card or candy and dig down a  little deeper to give to a worthy  charity, but don't ask me to get  involved.  All those things are good,  but it often cramps our style to  get involved with those who are  less fortunate doesn't it? Too  often in all our giving we can  miss seeing the 'greatest gift'.  Finally, there were the  wisemen, who awakened in a  far off land, saw the star and set  out to seek its meaning. They  didn't seem to mind leaving the  comforts of home, the silken  sheets, familiar food and servants, in quest for truth and  light.  Instead, jockeying their  camels they journeyed far bearing gifts to honor the new King.  When the message came they  obeyed, despite the cost, bringing their best to worship Him.  The real significance of  Christmas to them was not so  much the cost of the gifts, but  the offering of themselves to the  King of kings.  Now nearly 2000 Christmases  later, in a different time and  place, we are still faced with  similar questions. 'What does  Christmas mean to me? How  will I respond this Christmas of  1988?'  In our countdown for Christmas will we be like the innkeeper, the shepherds, or the  wisemen?  Sincere and warm wishes for :  a Joyous Christmas and a Hap- !  py New Year!  Irvines Landing Hall  Does Pender care?  by Jay Hamburger  The near forgotten community hall building, still standing, in  the Irvines Landing/Garden  Bay area of Pender Harbour,  has reached the point of leaking  roof, rotting sideboards, sopping wet floor and empty of  tables and chairs.  It's at the point of no return  unless action is taken to save the  historic hall from neglect,  negativity, the weather or the  bulldozer.  This is a great pity: the Irvines Landing Community Hall  building is a very nice old one-  room schoolhouse built in the  30's. I'm told, by some local  folk, it's the only one left standing of four one-room school-  houses that were in the Pender  Harbour vicinity at one time.  The schoolhouse used to have  an oil drum wood stove, nice  blackboards, tables and chairs  (all of which are gone now). It  still has a lovely, light hardwood  floor and high ceiling, with  possibly the original light fixtures hanging.  It provides a big (but not  huge) spacious room (with tall  high windows to look out on)  for meetings, small wedding  receptions, rehearsals, teaching  continuing education classes,  poetry or literary readings, one-  act theatre pieces, musical  ensembles, day-care, cooking  and pottery space, as well as  possible museum and' future  provincial, regional park purposes.  An addition was made onto  the rear side of the original  schoolhouse in the 1970's. This  gives the hall more space for  eating, serving, cooking  facilities; somewhat similar to  the layout of the present  Roberts Creek Hall.  To see such a building 'go'  would be, I believe, a sad loss to  the culture, history, vibration,  of the lovely, laid-back Irvines  Landing Community. The locale does have an important  history in that it was once the  Union Steamship landing for all  of Pender Harbour; hub of the  area when folk were more  waterbound.  Irvines Landing has lost nearly all its historic buildings to  neglect,   fire  or   destruction!  What is needed now is cum-  munity support, input to act  fast...as the hall's floors, walls  and roof need instant attention.  A two to three hour community meeting was held at  John Henry's Store (including a  half hour viewing of the condition of the hall, avoiding some  broken, weakened steps in and  out of the place). Attendance  included Gordon Wilson of the  regional   board   and   Bonnie  Murray,   representing   the  Pender Harbour Lioness Club  (who have worked many hours  towards saving the hall).  We discussed the building's  situation; looking for solutions,  areas of help and called for suggestions that would be made in  the presentation the next evening to the regional board on the  subject of 'saving the hall'.  The presentation/plea, made  by myself and Terry Drumel,  was met with the approval,  thank God, of the regional  board. Members agreed to look  after the restoration, repairs  and maintenance.  The Irvines Landing/Garden  Bay area needs to form a  registered society: pull all our  resources, forces, together, and  work with one another to put  the building back to use. The  regional board has acted in a  most helpful, saving grace manner.  Gordon Wilson and the  regional board are to be commended, along with thanks to  Bonnie Murray and the Pender  Harbour Lioness Society, that  took a long term interest in the  hall, raised some funds for  repair and attempted to get the  hall back on its feet.  But lack of community and  regional district support has led  the hall to its present near-  disastrous state. We want to  avoid the fate of such living  heritages of the province as the  loss of the historic Chinese community dwellings near Cumberland.  They are now vanished, succumbing to fire department  practice or bulldozer, mere  photos in a book or in an educational, billboard display-like explanations on the historical site.  Do the citizens of Irvines  Landing/Garden Bay really  care about the community hall?  It's one of the few, I believe, left  standing in such a present  unusable state.  Imagine, if I were to say to  you: "Here is an acre of wooded :  land with an old lovely one-:  room schoolhouse, big windows  to see out of,  former play- ���  ground, tennis court on the pro-  perly. Use it for nearly any ;  useful community, educational:  artistic, social, work purpose.  "But I think I should tell you :  the roof leaks, the floor is tak- :  ing on rain water, and some side '  wall boards are going rotten.  Oh and it stands empty-sorry!"  Now what kind of questions  does that get you to ask  yourself? And how does that  make you feel?  Well,   the   Irvines   Lan- '  ding/Garden Bay communities  have to come out of their sleepy ���  hollows. With regional board j  support they must pull their  resources together, and prove ;  we can hold our own with: ;  Halfmoon   Bay,   Welcome jj  Beach,   Davis  Bay,   Madeira  Park, Sechelt, Egmont and Gib- j  sons.  All these communities have ;  managed to retain their com- i  munity halls, despite negativity, ;  weather and sometimes lack of  total local support.  We, of the Irvines Landing ,'  Community Hall Committee,  need all the help possible. Any |  ideas or positive feedback into  this pressing matter; please con- j  tact 883-2472: Jay or Terry. ::  We'll  get  back  to  you.

To build a properly designed  facility for all of the performing  arts, or to have the performances of those arts in movie  houses, heritage buildings,  school and church halls...that is  the question.  To maintain and develop as  an open heart of a growing  town the existing area of  municipal and regional buildings fronting on a water-front  park, or to lose the opportunity  and develop instead a town  heart that has clogged arteries.  It is not just a matter of  building and using a theatre any  more than the faith in the  marina was a matter of building  and using the waterfront. Con-  sideratiop has to be beyond that  narrow view to the enhancement of the town as not  Anywhere, B.C., but a distinctive destination that, among  other attractive assets, has a  theatre.  There are many givens to the  town of Gibsons, not least of  which has been the foresight  over the many years to grasp for  the future an open core to the  lower town. Pioneer, Holland,  and the newly acquired seafront  parks, the sea walk, the open  space of the marina, are not accidents but decisions by people  with a feeling for a distinctive  community.  The Sunshine Coast has a  long and honoured tradition  with the performing arts, most  notably in theatrical productions. It is time to give them a  proper home.  It is difficult to understand  the naysayers who would shoot  down the aspirations of a dedicated group of talented, varied-  professional people who have  given of time, money and effort  toward this project.  They have secured significant  corporate support based on  faith in it, and hundreds of people up and down the Coast who  cherish the hope for it, and who  seek only understanding and a  modicum of co-operation from  the town. There is no threat,  financial or otherwise, in a class  acl than can be the centre to a  gorgeous setting in a liveable  community.  Go for it, Gibsons Council,  and add to those before you  who gave to the broader community some wonderful deeds  of gift.

I feel that  on behalf of the volunteers who  have contributed to the  maintenance of the lights, that I  should take this opportunity to  set the record straight.  B.C. Telephone Co. has generously allowed the use of their  ladder truck for the past eight  years. It has to be picked up  after working hours in Sechelt  and returned the same evening.  They do not charge the town  for this service as does B.C.  Hydro. Bul if they did, the expense would be a considerable  one for the use of the truck plus  two men and a flag person on  overtime.  Allan Howse and Stan  Stubbs kindly change damaged  light bulbs every year. This year  they started right after work  and did not finish until after  midnight.  They volunteered their time  to do this. While doing Gibsons  Landing, they decided to do upper Gibsons as well.

The Honorable Tom Siddon  Minister of Fisheries  Parliament Buildings  Ottawa, Ontario  The recent closure of the  Howe Sound prawn, shrimp  and crab fishery is a severe indictment of the Port Mellon and  Woodfibre   pulp   mills-  in  polluting these waters. At the  very least, fishermen should be  compensated for loss of  livelihood in this area.  We, the public, should be  compensated for another  betrayal in the management of a  public resource. I trust that stringent regulations enforcing a  zero tolerance of toxic  substances in waste from these  mills is now in effect.  Laurel Sukkau  Like carol books  Editor:  The staff and students of  Halfmoon Bay Elementary  sincerely appreciate the extra  copies of the Sunshine Coast  Christmas Carol Book which  contains many carols we are  familiar with and many more  we can learn in years to come.

An inquiry was not even  made by them. These men have  not been thanked.  The Chamber of Commerce  did not assume responsibility  for replacing damaged bulbs (at  a cost of $120 per string as was  reported by Mr. Collins at the  council meeting. In fact the  Gibsons Landing Merchants'  Association purchased the bulbs  and a representative went to  town to pick them up.  Ken's Lucky Dollar Foods,  Dr. Webb and Mr. and Mrs.  Gurney donated money towards  the bulb cost over-run. The  Harbour Cafe fed the men the  night of the task.

Gibsons prepares storm drain  fees for new subdivisions  bv Harold Blaine  With the rate of new development in Gibsons Town becoming very healthy, the town council is considering adoption of a  new storm drain fee on newly  subdivided lots.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  lold council December 13 there  is a need for a storm drain fund  to cover the cost of work which  needs to be done. Town charges  for new lots were reduced from  $1100 to $700 several years ago  when local development was  stalled.  Planner Buchan said there  was some controversy two years  ago as to whether the reduced  fee encouraged development.  But   experience   proved   the  Happy Holidays  to all our  "^B customers  Merrilee, Marjorie,  Jocelyne & Denise  reduction had no effect.  Development didn't resume  until the local economy improved significantly with the amount  of the fee not appearing to be a  determining factor, he said.  Now the town has more than  100 new lots approved for  development. Many more are in  prospect, as there are a number  of subdivisions being discussed,  said the town planner.  Lots already approved  wouldn't be subject to any new  storm drainage fee.  Buchan described today's  development rate in the town as  a very healthy situation, a time  to start a storm drain fee if there  is to be one. He said the amount  needed for storm drain work  could be calculated and set as  the goal for stockpiling in a  fund.  Storm drains are needed particularly in the old section of the  town where they are woefully  lacking, he said. Council agreed  to send the storm drain fee  question to finance committee  for study.  Hagedorn is the champion  in bag-packing contest  by Harold Blaine  The fastest grocery bag  packer among all of Canada's  independent grocers is Blane  Hagedorn of the Super Valu  Store in Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons.  Grocer Hagedorn won $1000  for the local Big Brothers  organization by winning the  'great Canadian bag off bag  packing contest held for the first  lime at the recent Canadian  Federation of Independent  Grocers annual convention at  Ihe Metro Toronto Convention  Centre.  "It was a fun deal really, and  for a good cause," said  Hagedorn.  "Bul 1 found there is no local  Big Brothers organization active, although there was one  three or four years ago. So the  money was donated io the Vancouver chapter which covers the  Sunshine Coast."  Big Brothers is an organization which provides adult male  companionship for fatherless  children. Hagedorn was chairman of the grocers' trade  association in 1986/87.

J&Om was accompanied by  RmtjWilliston, thu man who  vvfi&inister of lands, parks and  'iiJojjhg when ihe Sunshine  CSa Regional Dislricl was  esftjbjished. Williston now  usages in Gibsons.

Binl by point, he outlined  of communities sur-  Vancouver as the  [vftlfation of Vancouver pro-  i'crjkis increased over ihe years.  vJThe eighties developed  I sirwiassen. While Rock,  I affl&y, Maple Ridge, Haney  .mil; ���influenced the growih of  ihrSttstory  oiffing  every municipality in ihe Fraser  Valley up lo and including  Chilliwack. There are people  who live in Ihe Uniied Stales  (Point Roberts) who commute  daily to downtown  Vancouver," he stated.  "If the presenl trend of  economic growth in the Vancouver trading area continues,  coupled with the economic impact of Ihe Porl Mellon mill  modernizalion, ihe lower part  of the Sunshine Coasl will  almost undoubtedly experience  considerable pressure and strain  on ils ability to manage resideniial, commercial and industrial  growth."  This process, he added, will  accelerate if ihe proposed fast  water transit service to  downtown Vancouver is in service in 1989, as has been suggested.  Crum lold the committee he  believes most of the people living on the Sunshine Coast have  chosen lo live here because of  the particular quality of life lo  be found here, and that they  don'l wan! lo see lhat lifestyle  altered.

In outlining the rationale  behind lhat belief, Crum touched on Ihe delay necessary in  passing regulatory bylaws under  Ihe regional district structure.  He used Wood Bay Salmon  Farms as an example.  He referred Ihe committee to  ihe controversial origins of the  farm, and the SCRD's attempts  to stop ils establishment in a  residential area. The delay of  over a year in the processing of  the SCRD's regulatory bylaw  resulted in ihe farm becoming a  legally non-conforming entity  within the resideniial area.  Some harsh words were exchanged between Crum and  SCRD Area E Director Jim  Gurney around the issue.  Gurney stormed oul of the  meeling.  The regional districts, Crum  maintained, were not set up to  handle the problems of urban  sprawl.  "The SCRD has exhibited  strong and effective governmenl," he said, "but it is not  ihe form of government that  should carry on in the face of  the kind of development problems lhal will be coming up."  His position was supported  by Ray Williston.  The former cabinet minister  began his presentation by saying  "The restructuring of localized  public administrative functions  has been a constantly evolving  process in British Columbia.  Each change has al first been  greeled with opposition but,  upon implementation, has been  accepted with little or no continuing complaint."  He talked about Ihe thousands of school districts wilhin  the province lhal existed at the  end of WWII and the resistance  to the amalgamation of those  districts into 70 units in order to  better provide service for all the  areas.  The regional districts, he  said, were organized when the  rural areas became more  populated and .the demand for  group services increased.  "As an organizational tool,"  he explained, "school districts  were grouped to form a comparative population and assessment base. Usually, three  school districts were grouped to  form one of the 20 recommended regional districts.  "Certain problems of local  association became apparent.  To resolve disputes and ensure  acceptance of the new administrative concept, an additional eight districts were formed."  "It may be of interest lo note  Town ol Gibsons  PUBLIC NOTICE  ���I 0F  ZONING AMENDMENT BY-LAW #555-19,1988  I      (being proposed amendment to Zoning By-law #555,1986)  pursuant to Section 954 of the Municipal Act, this Public Notice shall confirm the  [mention of Zoning Amendment By-law No. 555-19 to amend the present zoning of  the following property as described:  jt.

Y;ake notice lhat the above paragraph is deemed to be a synopsis of the by-law, and  riot deemed lo be an interpretation thereof.  Pursuant also to Section 958 of the Municipal Act, it is not the intention of Council  to hold a Public Hearing on Zoning Amendment By-law Mo 555-19 as an Official  Qommunity Plan is in effect for the subject area, and Ihe proposed by-law is consistent with the plan.  A copy of the amending By-law is available for inspection at the Gibsons Municipal  ojffice, 474 South Fletcher Road, during office hours.  Hob Buchan  Municipal Planner & Approving Officer  R.2 w.e.1  thai the Sunshine Coast was one  of those affected. It was  originally to be linked with  Powell River," he said.  Williston reviewed what had  happened elsewhere when major pulp mills were set up  throughout the province. "As a  matter of general company  policy, every major industrial  enterprise in the province, except for two mills, have located  close to a community in which  many of the workers live, and  have been incorporated into the  municipal structure."  One of those Iwo exceptions  is Porl Mellon.  The reason lhal companies  choose to be wilhin municipal  boundaries, Williston said, is  lhat the tax paid by Ihe company then goes io local government to the betterment of the  community in which it is  located, ralher than going to the  provincial government.  His discussion of the tax  benefit to bolh ihe companies  and the general population  brought commenls from  restructuring committee  member Harry Cargo, about  Howe Sound Pulp and  Pape's(HSPP) reluctance to be  absorbed by a district  municipality.  "We wanl to be a part of this  (the town's development)", he  said, "bul there's no way we  can be assured lhal this isn't  goig to get out of hand."  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  pointed oul that over the years  the town has done everything it  could to cooperate with the  company during the lean years.  "We've put up with the bad  times, jusi like Ihe company.  Now we'd like a share of the  good times," she said.  Jon McRae told Cargo the  province warned municipalities  thai if they became excessive in  taxing indusiry, the province  would take lhal money away  from them.  The committee agreed lo ask  the lown council lo meel with  representatives from HSPP, to  discuss their resistance to and  fears of restructuring.  r DEPENDABLE   AUTO SERVICE  Did you knew...

Making public the move at its  regular meeting in Sechelt, Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) board members appealed for public support for the application to the ministry of  Crown lands. The land sought is  vacant and lies east of the park  and east of the B&K logging  road.  "We need support from all  individuals and organizations.  They should write letters etc. to  the ministry in support of the  application," said SCRD Vice-  chairman Brett McGillivray  who represents the area where  the park is located.  "It's important the public  realize we need significant community support if we are to be  successful in getting the land  needed for nine holes," said  Director Jim Gurney.

Irvines  Hall  repairs  by Harold Blaine  Repairs to the historic Irvines  Landing schoolhouse/hall are  to begin immediately. It is  hoped a community society will  be formed lo walch over and  help preserve the building.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board's planning committee heard a delegation from the Irvines Landing/Garden Bay community  December 8 at Sechelt. The  committee agreed to recommend to the SCRD board this  week that $3,600 in funds on  hand for the hall should be used  for immediately necessary exterior repairs.  Local spokesperson Jay  Hamburger told the committee  the hall and former one room  schoolhouse is the oldest  building standing in what was  once a thriving seaside village.  Irvines Landing was once a major steamship place but has  fallen back to a quiet group of  local homes, he said.  "The hall is in terrible condition," said delegate Hamburger. The roof is partly off  and covered with canvas, with  some rainwater leakage taking  place, he said.  Planning Chairman Gordon  Wilson said the British Columbia Heritage Trust has declared  the building and site as historic,  it being one of the last one room  schoolhouses of its kind in the  province. The Pender Harbour  Lioness Club has been concerned about the hall and has been  trying to look after it when  nobody else seemed to be doing  anything, he said.  The Lioness Club raised  money to save the building and  was responsible for the available  money on hand to do something.  Hamburger said a meeting of  about a dozen local residents  was held in an attempt to see  what could be done and what  uses could be found for the hall.  It sits on one acre of land, is 57  years old and has been sold for  a dollar to the SCRD.  The Lioness members are giving up, discouraged with  nothing being done. The two or  three men at the local meeting  were not so encouraged with the  project but the women were,  Hamburger said.  "Possibly something like a  museum or a maritime museum  could be possible. There's a lot  of fishing and logging still going  on in the area," he said.  "Or the building could be a  parks department maintenance  building with toilets. We have a  park already there." he said.  "Irvines Landing is a really  beautiful spot. I hate to see this  building in disrepair." said  Hamburger.  ___________  .__._____. ________._..    .. . ���  ���      .     lm \v ^     ,���  -   ���   ��� - Coast News, December 19,1988  Students from Cedar Grove Klementary School entertained with Christmas carols al Pioneer Park in  Gibsons Friday evening. -v<��� H"11 Ph��<"  Goddard disagrees  Harbour meeting sought  hv Harold Blaine  :   In an el'l'on to attain satisfac-  ��� tory developmeni and operation  of Gibsons Harbour, the lown  council   hopes  lo  convene  a  meeling with officials from Iwo  federal departments responsible.

She asked council's  support in convening a meeting,  and gol that support.  Mayor Strom said the two  departments don'l necessarily  tell each other what they are doing.  "There are some very dark  spots in this. The Departmenl  of Transport (DOT) has done a  master plan study including the  British Columbia coast and  covering our harbour," said  Mayor Strom.  Recently when she talked to  fisheries and oceans officials  aboul local wishes for the new-  breakwater location, she received the suggestion thai Gibsons  should consider formation of a  harbour authority in order to  have a formal say in harbour  planning.  "I ask that the harbour  authority thing be tabled (held  before the council for study),"  said Strom. "I'm not convinced  al ihis point lhat we should have  a harbour authority. I'm not  proposing that at all."  Town Administrator Lorraine Goddard noted that even  with a harbour authority there  would slill be a problem of splil  jurisdiction for harbour  facilities. The wharf would be in  the jurisdiction of one federal  department while Ihe fish floats  would be under another.  Administrator Goddard said  Ihe reason Gibsons gave up its  lease of the harbour facilities in  the past was that insurance costs  were too high. Even if fisheries  and oceans paid the insurance  for its part of ihe harbour  facilities through a harbour  authority, there would slill be  the malter of insurance for the  other part of the harbour  facilities.  "We shouldn't stick our neck  out until we can get officials  from both (federal) departments together at one meeting,"  she said.  "I don't believe a harbour  authority is the righl route for  us lo go. It's a big step for Ihis  lown," she said.  Members of town council  have in Iheir hands documenlaiion from Ihe federal department of fisheries and oceans on  the organization, formation,  operation and responsibilities of  an incorporated or municipal  harbour authority.

George    in    Gibsons  From the Coast News files  by George Cooper, 886-8520  In Florence Wiren's scrap-  book, a clipping from an issue  of Ihe Coast News of 1968 gives  Eric Thomson's recollections of  her father, Jack Charman, who  died that year on December 4.  Eric Thomson knew her  father as the A.J.C. who wrote  in the Vancouver Province,  about farming at Gibsons Landing, "...it was clear the writer  (A.J.C.) knew what he was  writing about from the grass  roots up.  "And he concluded his series  of articles in the Province," said  Eric, "with the deduction that  no one could make a living  from the land alone in this  dislrict, wages were needed to  buy store goods."  Eric Thomson recalls discussions in the smoking rooms of  ihe Union Steamships vessels  and also on the freight decks  when the ships' officers and the  deckhands spoke of "swallowing the anchor and going farming". A.J.C.'s articles were  widely read.  The lonely clearing on the  skyline that was his homestead  was pointed out and stared at  each lime a vessel came pasl  Worlcombe and Popham Islands on its way into Gibsons  Landing.  None knew at that time that  A.J.C. had been round the  world himself in sailing ships  five times before he was 21  years old.  "I don't Ihink A.J.C.'s articles on farming led to any land  sales in Gibsons Landing by the  seagoing folk, other than one  deckhand's buying a lot where  Gibsons shipyard is now, and  then worrying if he'd ever get  back his purchase price of  $700."  Although both Eric and  A.J.C. lived near Gibsons Landing Village for years, Eric said,  "To my regret we never had  speech together. But when we  passed on occasion in the  village, he raised an eybrow  over a twinkling eye to me, and  I returned the compliment."  They understood each other  and words were unnecessary.  Just as a footnote to this  remembrance of a grand old  timer, A.J.C, we'll quote from  an article of his in a December  issue of the Coast News. Under  the title Tree of the Year, he  wrote, "...impossible this year  lo find Ihe ideal tree that is  evenly branched, tapering upwards to the tip where the star  of David shines on all below at  the appointed time."  The reason? "The growing  point has overdone it this year  lo an extent varying from 24 to  30 inches." Not an ideal length  for the star to perch on, and  "amputatin of the tree is called  for...better than cutting a hole  in the ceiling."  A.J. Jack Charman by this  time was welcoming to his place  Christmas tree seekers who were  now grown and bringing their-  children to the same grove that  they had once come to al the  Christmas traditional tree cutting time.  A SPECIAL RESIDENCE  The staff and clients of 1057  Fairview Road welcomed guests  to their new home on December  14.  Among the visitors to the  residence were members of a  training program in caregiving.

Since last April when it opened, the residence has been  transformed into a tastefully  furnished home for the four  clients who live there.

Students from Chatelech Secondary School assisted. ��� Vem KJlloti photo  At Sechelt Council  Garbage and sewers  occupy Council  by Penny Fuller  Much of the first meeling of  the Sechell Municipal District's  new council was taken up  discussing garbage.  The firsl piece of correspondence received by council  was a copy of a teller from  Minister of Municipal Affairs  Rila Johnston, to Sunshine  Coasl Regional Dislricl (SCRD)  chairman Peggy Connor. It  dealt with the on-going issue of  the ownership and operation of  the Sechelt sewerage system.  The syslem and treatment  plant are operated by the  SCRD. When the Village of  Sechelt restructured and expanded ils boundaries in I986 lo  become Sechell Municipal  Dislricl, the new council began  lo investigate the possibility of  laking over the plant and lhat  portion of the system which lies  within Ihe boundaries of Ihe  municipal district.  In her letter, Johnston says  Connor mel wiih executive of  the ministry, 'and discussed Ihe  possibilities of restructuring ihe  sewerage function such that the  Iwo primary beneficiaries of the  Sechelt system - Ihe District of  Sechelt and the Sechelt Indian  Government District - share the  control of the treatment  system'.  Johnston urged the SCRD to  meet with representatives from  Sechelt and the Indian band to  discuss the matter. Sechell  council was in full support of  the idea.  Members agreed at last  week's meeting that the Sechelt  representatives to such a  meeting should be Mayor Tom  Meredith, Alderman Bob  Wilson and members of the  staff.  Council also received a letter  from Ihe Sunshine Coasl Disposal Services, requesting lhat  quarterly adjustments be made  to iheir contract lo reflect the  new residences requiring garbage collection service. The  matler was referred lo staff to  arrange.  Finally, council received a letter from Bruce Strachan, the  minister responsible for environment. The letter deals with  the issue of the disposal of  waste chemicals, such as those  occasionally generated by  hospitals and laboratories or  schools, which may be potentially explosive.  Meredith said St. Mary's  Hospital has an incinerator thai  is the envy of many hospitals on  the Lower Mainland, and can  dispose of much of its own  waste products in that way.  However, council has asked  newly elected alderman Bob  Graham and Planner Ron  Sabine to contact the SCRD  and establish whether or not  there is a problem of this nature  on the Sunshine Coast.

Sechelt Seniors  Christmas Dinner  by Larry Grafton  he traditional Christmas lighl display at Weal's beside Highway  111 in Roberts Creek has many attractive and innovative displays  his year. ��� Vern Klllotl pholo  Sewer expansion  A $382,000 low bid was made by Western Versatile Construction to build an expansion at the Sechelt Sewer Plant.  Tenders were opened at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  office in Sechelt, December 15.  This was the second time tenders were called. Only one bid  for $479,000 was submitted the last time in January.  "We've done fairly well by delaying for a few months,"  remarked SCRD Administrator Larry Jardine.  The other two bids submitted were Mandrax Enterprises  Ltd. for $445,300 and MDM Construction Co. Ltd. for  $445,043.  On December 8 some  140-odd members of Branch 69  and their guests were in attendance at the Sechelt Legion for  the annual branch Christmas  Dinner. Wine was available  from the bar as a prelude to the  meal for those who wished it.  The turkey dinner was prepared by the ladies of the  Sechelt Legion Ladies Auxilliary. I must say in my humble  opinion, they did an excellent  job.  The food was served on individual plates, served hot, with  plenty of everything for those  with a normal appetite. Seconds  were available for those who  desired a little extra. Bravo to  these ladies who excelled on  behalf of our assembled  members.  One of the highlights of the  afternoon was the recognition  of the 60th anniversary of  Eileen and Walter James.  Among other things, a 60th anniversary scroll was presented to  Eileen and Walter, lt was signed  by the individual members as  Ihey departed the function.  Walter was still in good voice  after the presentation, as he  took his place with the 69ers on  the stage to sing a few  Christmas carols. It was a very  satisfying afternoon.  NEW YEAR'S DANCE  At the expense of being  repetitious, a reminder is in  order of the New Year's Eve  Dance being organized by Patty  and John Miller to take place in  our hall on that specific day.  The gala affair starts with a  roast beef dinner at 7:30 pm  followed by dancing to Ihe live  music of Jack Bourne and  Associates from 9 pm to 1 am.  The licensed bar will be open  all evening and I'm sure Patty  and John will have a few surprises for you throughout the  evening.  Tickets are available from  885-7792 (evenings) and from  885-9249 on a limited basis, so  please do not procrastinate if  you intend to be present to see  the new year in.  EXCUSES!  Have you ever had an accident in your car and been asked  to describe it? I understand the  following gems were published  by an insurance company for  internal distribution but they  eventually showed up in Ann  Lander's column, so some of  you may have seen them.  "The other collided with  mine, without giving warning of  ils inlenlion.  "I thought my window was  down bul found il was up when  I put my hand through it.  "I was on my way to the doctor's wilh rear end trouble when  my universal joint gave way,  causing me to have an accident.  "The telephone pole was approaching fast. I was attempting to swerve out of its path  when it struck my from end."  Since this will be my lasl column prior lo Christmas, 1 extend io my readers and fellow  members a very Merry  Christmas.

CHRISTMAS BINGO  The Christmas bingo at the  Community Hall Thursday  evening was well-attended and  unanimously considered a great  success, even though the head  count was less than 900.  Lloyd Wiley's table is gaining  a reputation as the 'lucky table',  and even though Lloyd didn't  win anything, four of the people  sitting with him carried out two  turkeys, two boxes of chocolates, a ceramic snowman, a gift  certificate for Francis' Take  Out, and over $250 in cash.  Rumor has it that Lloyd is going  to claim commission from prize  winners at his table in the new  year.  Even one of the infamous  Beagle Brothers fishing team  was at the Christmas bingo.  Ferry  crew  effects  rescue  The small boal of an Ontario  native returning from work on a  fish farm capsized on Tuesday  morning. The young man who  found himself in the icy waters  of Jervis Inlet was glad that he  was wearing a survival suit.  The man clung to his overturned boat for about 20  minutes, then fired an emergency flare when he saw a B.C.  ferry approaching.  The ferry crew rescued the  man and concerned that he  might be suffering from  hypothermia, radioed for an  ambulance to meet them at  Earls Cove.  The man experienced no ill  health from his experience, and  luckily was only inconvenienced  by a lack of dry clothing. He  said thai he felt little cold  through the suit while he was in  the waler.

In any restructuring  Industrial study  Aiming to avoid possible future industrial environment  [roubles, the Sunshine Coast Regional Dislrict board is going  to look at ihe costs involved in doing a major environmental  sludy for ils Hillside Industrial Area ai Pon Mellon.  The board agreed December 15 to ask planning staff to  report on the costs involved and recoverable expenses for a  broad major environmental impact study for Hillside, as  recommended by Director Jim Gurney.  No to Oceanmount  Oceanmount subdivision owners asked Gibsons council  December 13 for permission to clear vegetation from the  lown right-of-way adjacent io lots being developed on the  plateau above Ihe lown. But council denied the request.  The town engineer advised that furiher stripping of vegetation would cause erosion to the properties below. Very cosily  storm sewers and catch basins would be needed.  Water project  A joint town and regional $720,000 water tank projeel for  ihe Payne/Leek roads areas was recommended to Gibsons  Town council December 13 by consulting engineers. Council  agreed lo seek a meeting with Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) representatives to discuss the proposal.  Consultanl engineers Dayton and Knight Ltd. were asked  to recommend a solution lo ihe problem of relocating the existing Payne Road waler tanks off the areas affected by a proposed improvement of Payne Road. The consultants listed  five possible solutions lo the problem, bul favoured a V/i  million gallon joint scheme.  The SCRD share of the project is estimated at $360,000.  There would be an additional cost of $145,000 for connecting  the water main.  No paper next week  As is customary, the Coast News will not be published between Christmas and the New Year.

Committee members agreed  the increased cosl of servicing  Ihe newly incorporated areas  could only be handled if the new  municipal district were receiving  tax revenues from ihe pulp mill  al Porl Mellon.  Harry Cargo, who is on ihe  management staff al Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper, warned  the committee lhat the senior  executives al the mill are leary  of being included wilhin a  municipal district's boundaries.  The main issue, which continued io be raised Ihroughoul  the meeting, was a distrust of  possible municipal district councils which mighl decide to impose unreasonable taxes on the  mill.  The pulp mill will be facing a  major tax increase when the expansion is completed, due to the  radically increased value of the  operalion.  Mayor Diane Slrom assured  Cargo lhal any municipal council would be foolish to deal in  bud faith with the mill. Slrom  said she would try to set up a  meeting with senior management at the mill to address their  concerns.  The report recommends that,  subject to ihe acceptance of  voters in Areas E and F, the  Town of Gibsons restructure its  boundaries to include the designated areas, and that a vote be  held lo determine the issue in  1989.  Contrary lo the understanding  of committee   members  when iheir study first began, the  ministry of municipal affairs  does nol allow for voles lo be  counted in each individual area,  ll requires that the votes all go  into one 'pot' and the result of  Ihe vote be based on total  ballots cast.  In ihe case of restructuring, a  'yes' vote of 50 percent plus one  is required.  The drafl report covers  several issues raised during the  lime of the study by citizens'  groups, such as Ihe fate of ihe  water improvement district  under a restructured governmenl. The author of the reporl,  Tom Moore, recommends local  committees be established to administer the waler improvement  districts now in existence. Initia-  ly these committees should be  composed of ihe trustees now  holding office.  Regarding tax increases,  Moore estimates residential taxation will be reduced slightly in  Areas E and F, S.13/SI000 in  Area F and $.09/$IOOO in Area  E. In Ihe current Town of Gibsons, the residential lax rate  would drop by $2.95/$1000.  The only area which could  find an increase in tax rate  would be that seclion of area F  from Gibsons through to  Langdale which would see an  increase in residential tax of  $1.46/$l000.  Committee Chairman Jane  Sorko pointed oul, however,  lhal Ihe issue is less one of  decreasing resideniial lax rales  in the rural areas than of protecting property owners againsl ihe  massive projected increases in  rural/residential lax rales which  arc expected in the near future.  Before requesting lhal a vole  be held on restructuring, the  Town of Gibsons will be  holding public information  meelings and disseminating inlormalion brochures.

The  budget is subject to revision until Marcl) 31.  This budget includes full payment of about $400,000 for an  expansion of the Sechelt sewage  ! plant. If utilities and this sewage  plant amount are excluded, the  SCRD operating budget of  :$3,133,038 is up 6.9 per'cent,  says Administrator Larry Jardine.  The budget contains no major new programs and continues  ihe district's 10-year budget for  waler systems. The parks and  economic development programs are continued, as well as  the dog conlrol program begun  last year, says the administrator.  The major operating expenditure increase over the 1988  budget is $55,000 for community planning and zoning. This includes $22,000 for salaries.  Mapping and service record  costs are up $13,000. There's an  additional $30,000 for planning  consultants.  Spending on regional parks is  down $20,000 to $105,800.  Economic development spending is up $13,000 to $138,830.  The general government  spending estimate is up $45,000  io $596,775. This includes an  additional $27,000 for salaries.  The estimate for Roberts  Creek Fire Department is up  $10,000 to $113,745. Hal/moon  Bay Fire Department's estimate  is also up $10,000 lo $106,095.  Building inspection expenditures are up $44,000 to  $159,000. This includes $30,000  more for salaries.  Environmental health expenditures are also up $44,000 to  $384,810. This includes a new  estimate of $20,000 for fish pit  expenses, as well as $10,000  more for each of a recycling  project and mainlenance.  ft**  PMW  ^  dS.  #  **  On fish-farming  Wilson critical of  Ombudsman's report  by Harold Blaine  The B.C. Ombudsman's report on fish farming is a major  disappointment, idealistic and  unworkable, says Gordon  Wilson, director and foreshore  committee chairman for the  Sunshine Coast Regional  Disirici (SCRD).  Ombudsman Slephen Owen  December 9 released a reporl on  the province's new aquaculture  industry afler a year long study.  SCRD Director Wilson,  elected to the regional board  from a major fish farming area  and also leader of ihe Liberal  Party in the province, said the  report of the Ombudsman doesn't sound like ii was written  about British Columbia.  "The report does nat take  issue with the fundamental problem which is the definition of  the surface of the water as a  resource rather than a natural  extension of the land. Whal is  created by this current definition is a jurisdictional  nightmare which will not be  resolved through consensus  planning on a site specific basis  as called for in the report."  Wilson said he supports the  call for an Aquaculture Act.  But he suggests Ihe content of  such an act musl include slrict  environmental measures, with  appropriate penalties for Ihose  in violation of established standards.  "It is important for an  Aquaculture Act to have real  teeth so thai enforcement is  possible." he said.  The call for an independent  office of an aquaculture inspec  tor would be too expensive, he  said suggesting the Aquaculture  Act could be enforced through a  cooperative management model  worked oul between the federal  department of fisheries and  oceans, and ihe provincial  ministry responsible for fish and  game.  In both instances Wilson suggested more officers should be  hired.  Most disappointing was recommendation 3, and the supporting argument which called  for a consensual dispute resolution technique, rather lhan an  appeal process lhat would allow  an oplion for mediation with  access to litigation should thai  process fail, said Wilson.  "What is recommended here  is great in theory", Wilson  noted, "and I see that this  report has been influenced by  the mosl 'in' work. Gelling to  Yes: Negotiating and Agreement Without Giving In,  perhaps Mr. Owen has taken  ihe workshop lhal goes wiih it,  but this is Brilish Columbia,  and we are dealing with Social  Credit ideology, the word consensus isn't in their dictionary."  "People need to have a clear  course of aclion, and that musi  include access to ihe courts wilh  binding resolution. Of course,  mediation is the first step, but if  that should fail, ihe people musl  be able lo lake ihe governmenl  to court," said the SCRD director.  AIDS locally  Four cases of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) have been recorded to dale in the local health unit  area, according to Dr. Ray Marsh, Coast/Garibaldi Heallh  Unit medical health officer. The unit includes the Pemberton,  Squamish, Sunshine Coast and Powell River areas.  More specific geographic identification of the specific location of AIDS victims isn't reported by the health unit. The  disease is fatal and there is no known cure.  AIDS is transmitted during sexual contacts or by drug  users sharing need(es.  Christmas ferry  The Sunshine Coast Regional District board December 15  agreed to ask the B.C. Ferry Service to provide a  Langdale/Horsehoe Bay late night ferry for Christmas Day.  In view of ihe number of telephone tails about the need for  a late ferry that day, and because of how the ferry service impacts on people's lives, it was agreed to make the request.  It was noted a later ferry is provided on other special  holidays during the year and therefore Christmas should be  included. r u '  S* t  \>��  from Blackberries  management and staff  kisttms  Last minute I "����*, <j��f and Lounge Wear  .           , 1 Ladies  Leather Jackets Irani M9900  Shopping I Ladies''Fashion Watches  ide��lS...

He  is determined that theirs will be  a class organization in every  way, and the ground rules of  what will one day be known as  the Wilson gang are firmly  established. It is vital that they  never be recognized.  To this end they perfect the  art of applying theatrical  makeup, false beards, wigs and  other paraphernalia. (In time  ihis facet of the operation will  evolve into a virtual costume  departmenl). It goes without  saying that the gang members  will wear gloves at all times during the commission of crimes,  and there must be no undue  violence or use of firearms.  Herb is absolutely adamant on  this score.  He devises a system for sharing the loot. Later he will attribute the cohesiveness of his  gang to this democratic method:  Unlike many mob chiefs, I  took no cut off the top, leaving  the rest to split the remainder.  Capricorns elusive  by Penn) Fuller  There arc those in our society  who truly understand stock options, debentures, insurance options and RRSPs, who '">n't  just dream of having enough  money to use tns loopholes, but  make use of Ihem annually.  A significant number of these  people were born when the Sun  was in Capricorn (December 22  - January 2(1). Something aboul  thai Sun position bestows an  understanding of how the  system works, in all ils subtle  Iwistings and turnings.  Of course, nol all Capricorn  Suns are financial wizards. Bul  the majority have the ability lo  make the syslem work for ihem  if (hey so choose.  The rest of us may feel like  we've entered the twilight /.one  whenever called upon lo deal  wiih tax forms, high finance or  big corporations,  But you can'l pm Capricorns  in a pigeon hole. We're talking  about a sign here lhal has as its  symbol a goal with a fish's tail.  If a Capricorn wears a pinstripe suit, there's a good  chance they have flourescent  underwear on underneath. As  wilh any olher sign, you can't  lump Ihem all together and fit  Ihem into narrowly confined  concepts. They just won't  cooperate.  But there are certain talents  thai come with each sign. With  Capricorn, there is a comfort  with structure and money.  You see, if money makes you  nervous, if ycu are convinced at  a subconscious level that you  can't handle high finance, then  the chances are good you'll  never be forced into a situation  where you have to.  In other words, your chances  of becoming filthy rich are  limited.  On the other hand, if you  find the juggling of figures kind  of fun, like a chess game, then  the likelihood is that you will  find yourself playing with  money. If you believe you're  good at it, then you will probably be successful at making a  profit.  As we move closer to the 21st  Century, those with Capricorn  Suns are gelling a bil of a working over. Neptune has been  travelling through the first 10  degrees of Capricorn since early  1984.

The trouble is they are  so nebulous it's hard to put  your finger on what changes  have been wrought.  Neptune dissolves structures  and facilitiates the connection  between the conscious mind and  god, or universal energy, or the  cosmos, whatever you like to  call it, the unknowable.  In 1989 people born the first  couple of days of January will  be under its influence, but you  may not even notice it apart  from a slightly confused feeling.  However, Saturn and Uranus  now begin to seriously work  their way through Capricorn.  During the next 12 months  those of you born between  December 22 and January 3 will  feel the effects of Saturn, and  those are very noticeable.  This coming year may be one  of frustration and restraint as  you are given a clear look at the  restrictions that you've created  in your life.  Don't worry. After that time,  Uranus will be rolling along, for  most of you in 1990, giving you  the energy and the means to  break free of those restrictions  and rebuild your life to better  suit the new you.  A book for  the Coast  by Rose Nicholson  The Accidental Airline by  Howard White and Jim Spilsbury. Harbour Publishing.  To anyone who has lived up  the coast during the last 30 years  or so, Spilsbury and Tindall and  Queen Charlotte Airlines have  been practically household  words.  Queen Charlotte Airlines has  been, often quite literally the  lifeline that reached to nearly inaccessible gyppo logging camps  to fly badly injured loggers to a  hospital when a trip by boat  would have been impossible or  too late.  Spilsbury and Tindall provided the means for these same  gyppos to communicate with  the outside world, thus ending  the terrible isolation often felt  by the tiny communities that  clung like lonely barnacles to  the precipitous sides of forgotten inlets.  Reading The Accidental  Airline by Howard White and  Jim Spilsbury is like sitting  around a table in a cookhouse  by the light of a hissing Coleman lantern drinking coffee  and listening to the southeaster  howling in the trees.  Everybody has a story to tell,  and every story is hair-raising or  funny or tragic, and all are true.  Once again, Harbour Publishing has recorded another  facet of B.C. history. As  always, it is very well done.  Old-timers will read it with  affectionate appreciation.  Those new to the coast will  catch a glimpse of a lifestyle  that probably does not exist  anywhere else.  In making a split, cash of  course was shared out at once.  Negotiable bonds had to be  fenced, at a remote market, and  obviously at a discount. The net  yield in turn, minus the expenses involved in the fencing,  was divided equally among the  mobsters concerned.  Each job is meticulously cased. The alarm systems are  studied as are the habits of the  watchman. Escape routes are  plotted and possible contingencies allowed for.  The gang hits always in the  dead of night, well-disguised  and well-briefed. There is an  economy of motion, a strict emphasis on timing. Nothing is left  to chance in Herb Wilson's  careful scenarios.  The marks are breached according to precise schedule and  one by one, the safes snap open  like obedient oysters. Herb  grows in skill and confidence  with each successful job.  One Saturday night about  three weeks later, the afternoon  shift files past the time clock at  Nabisco's largest bakery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Among  the ranks of the workers are  some new employees, their faces  subtly altered by the addition of  bogus moustaches, unnecessary  spectacles and died or bleach  hair.  They include Herb Wilson,  Joe Bertsch, Lou Wilson, Herb  Cox, Doc Redding, Joe BLue  and Big Jack Peer. They have  all been recently engaged by the  unsuspecting personnel department, singly and under assumed  names.  After more than a week of  pushing handcarts, unloading  ovens and feeding wrapping  machines, the members of the  gang have familiarized  themselves with the work  routines and the general layout  of the huge plant.  The Nabisco operation is a  sprawling complex of bakeries,  warehouses and offices,  strategically located on a  railroad spur line. It employed a  workforce of several hundred  people and supplies outlets in  several states.  As a result, large sums of  money pass through the company's main office each week.  This office, the focal point of  the gang's interest, is located  down a long corridor that connects with the locker room and  the central bakery.  The door to this office is  naturally kept locked at night  and on weekends. Cox, however, masquerading as a janitor,  has managed to purloin a key.  To be conlinued...

Multiple Sclerosis experience  One's favourite place  b> Beatrix  Howe Sound Paper company and union held their Christmas party at Gibsons Elementary School gymnasium recently. More than 300 children and their parents took part.  On the Sunshine Coast  A new author among us  by Harold Blaine  The Sunshine Coast has a  new author-in-residence! She's  Farida Karodia, an ex-patriate  South African highschool  teacher.  Karodia fled her unfortunate  country of rampant racism  because the practice of her profession and her life were circumscribed by apartheid.  Of African, Indian and European ancestry, she's been working here for close to four months on her third book, it's a  suspense thriller set in Africa  like her other work.  Author Karodia says she  writes instead of teaching  because she's full and overflowing with things to write. And  there's still a lot more.  She doesn't have to push  herself or discipline herself, except maybe in spring time, says  Ihe daughter of a South African  businessman born in India and  hit by racism. Born in 1942 in  Starkstroom, she taught school  until 1966 after attending college in Johannesburg.  Driven lo leave, she went to  Zambia (formerly Northern  Rhodesia) and taught for two  years. But the racism and influence of South Africa pursued  here there. She fled on to  Swaziland, then to Canada in  1969.  She came here because she  liked Canada's reputation for  political stability. But she says  she cares very deeply about her  native land.  Her first book is set in her  birthplace, Starkstroom. It is  based on her experiences of  racial separation and the way  government policies there affect  personal lives.  Titled Daughters of Ihe  Twilight, her first book was  published by the Women's  Press Ltd. 1986, London, U.K.  Why a publisher in Britain?  "Because my education and my  spelling is English", she says.  She hasn't tried for Canadian  publication, although for a time  she wrote some drama for the  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.  Her second book is Coming  Home and Other Stories, a  short story collection recently  published by Heinemann International Publishing, Oxford,  U.K. Both books may be  ordered in Canada.  Both books are paperbacks.  She began writing because a  lot has been written about the  plight of (he Blacks in South  Africa, bul not much about the  problems of other racial groups.  The social hierarchy created  in the country by its racist  policies has the effect of  generating anger among the  people, says Karodia.  After arriving in Canada, she  laught at Golden, B.C. for three  years. Then she did the drama  work, followed by her first  novel.  Some of the short stories in  her second book were first sold  to literary magazines in the  United States.  She's also sold the foreign  rights of her first book.  Surprisingly, distribution of  both her books has been allowed in South Africa. There have  been some obvious, cosmetic  changes there, she says.  Karodia chose to come to this  area because it attracted her,  and she says her writing is going  well. She hopes lo have her second novel done by spring.  seeing the world. But she hasn'l  gone any.vhere lor Iwo years.  "But I'm probably on the  verge of going," she says.  The 'long irip to Mexico' has  almost begun.

Then we're off, Three or lour  days from Vancouver lo San  Diego, depending on how Emma and I travel. John, I'm sure  can drive longer than we can sil.  We arc driving down the Ba-  ia, and laking a freighter from  La Paz. across to Ma/atlan. Our  lirsl long slop will be San Bias,  my most favourite place in the  world.  We arc going to camp and  take it easy. And we arc going  to be gone for two months,  I'm feeling okay. I'm learning to live my busy, interesting,  good life and have MS. I look  after myself. I'm already looking forward to coming home In  February.  The spring, daffodils, tulips,  what to do with the garden, a  new sundeck, the greenhouse,  finishing the porch, montbretia,  where to plant the dahlias,  working full time again.  It's wonderful to be going to  Mexico. I lived Ihere from 1973  lo 1978, for live years, off and  on. I was married to a Mexican  then.  The memory of my time there  seems very strange and removed  from my life now,  10 years  later. I have a few people to  look up and places to revisit.  Our imminent departure  jumps oul ai me in a mundane  fashion. We won't be here for  nexl week's garbage collection.  _ GIBSONS LEGION��  *gfff     Branch ��109  Members i.

After a two hour break at .3  o'clock, she writes until 11, or  often late inlo the night.  The revising, editing and  finishing of her writing is done  on a word processing computer.  But she does her firsl and second drafts the old way on a  typewriter.  Somehow il doesn't feel really like creating, not really like  writing, except on the typewriter  to start with, she says.

Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Toast oi  toeCwwl  MIGHT ON THE TOWN  I've found in dining around Canada, lhat in a truly 'class'  restaurant everyone feels comfortable, whether garbed in tuxedo or formal gown or toting a baby on the hip. The Omega  truly qualifies as a 'class' establishment.  Our dinner was superb, beginning wilh scallops sauleed in  butter for my escorl and a tossed salad for me.  1 had chosen the special for the evening, prawns in garlic  butter, and he selected a single lobster tail from the extensive  menu. The prawns were sumptuous, their delicate taste  brought out lo perfection by the finely seasoned buller. The  Omega potato has been raved about regularly in this column  so I will simply add that it is as much a reason to return to the  Omega as the beautiful view of Gibsons Harbour.  Lobster on the Wesl Coast can be a real disappointment If  the chef preparing it fails to be aware of the difference thai a  few seconds in cooking time can make. At the Omega, the  sweet meat was cooked to perfection, ensuring a delectable  texture as well as taste.  The fresh vegetables which accompanied each order were  also prepared with great care, neither over cooked nor loo  crunchy.  The meal, the service and the wonderful view added a  special touch to this holiday celebration.  Others who enjoy fine dining on a regular basis may be interested to know that plans are in the works for a 'regular  diners bonus program' for those who have lunch at ihe  Omega on a regular basis. It should start some time early in  the new year and will make the enjoyment of the Omega's  fine dining even more appealing.  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

Makes W.  Germany's  national  by Barry Krangle  Tony Duffy was just punches  away from representing Canada  at the Summer Olympics in  Seoul. Slightly discouraged,  uncertain of his boxing future,  Duffy decided to temporarily  hang up the mitts, earn a few  bucks and join some buddies on  an excursion abroad.  In Ireland, Duffy looked up  Eamon McLaughlin, the fellow  who decisioned him in Cuba at  the World Championships.  McLaughlin has since turned  pro and boasts a 7-0 undefeated  record plus a recently acclaimed  Irish National Title.  McLaughlin, training out of  former World Champion Barry  McGuigan's camp in Belfast,  invited Duffy to work out.  Ecstatic with his showing, Duffy immediately phoned home  only to hear Dad say, "I told ya  so!"  Following a jaunl through  France, Spain, Portugal,  Morocco, Andora and Austria,  Duffy arrived in Frankfurt. He  searched out one of the local  gyms, laced up the gloves, and  earned an invitation to  Deulschland's number one national training headquarters.  Impressed with the  Gibsonite's speed, technique  and tenacity, the German team  offered Duffy lodgings and a  berth on their most pretigious  boxing leam. With an approved  Canadian amateur sanction,  Duffy will climb into the ring,  under a different tune next  month in Berlin.  Then, perhaps, he may rejoin  his buddies in Austria for a little  Alpine ski vacation.

Remembering Albert Hodson
The retired logger known to
Pender Harbour and Egmonl as
'Little Albert' passed away
peacefully on December 8,
1988, surrounded as usual by
loving friends.
Albert Edward Hodson lived
nearly all his 80 years on the
B.C. coast, though born in Ontario. Briefly in WWII he was
posted in eastern Canada wiih
the Forestry Corps.
Albert grew up first in Vancouver, ihen near Waiatl Bay in
Ihe Upper Surge Narrows, in a
rough-and-tumble boyhood
with his five brolhers. By age 14
he was logging.
Though he fished and look
other jobs by times, he found
his light weight and agility made
him mosl efficient at log-
booming. A good 50 years later,
he lapered off into watchman's
jobs ai various camps.
Albert's logging stories would
fill a book, bul one which will
never be written.
'Liltle Albert's' rough
childhood   and   small   statute
gave him Ihe quick temper he so
often regretted. Nevertheless he
had a gift of making friends and
became the quiet favourite in
any group.
Inlelligenl and creative, he
has left some painted landscapes and a few pleasant
poems. Mosl show his closeness
to nature:
"Logs and chunks ground on
the rocks, huge waves battered
al the docks."
His compassion: "Let me
love little children, especially the
handicapped ones."
His humour: "If I had not
ate and had not drank, just put
my money in the bank..."
A high point of Albert's
retirement was his few years living beside the playground of
Madeira Park Elementary
School. Children mobbed him
as he crossed the field each
claiming Albert as a special
Later he moved to Greenecourt and Shorncliffe.
Albert is survived by two
brothers and two sisters, as well
as many nieces and nephews.
He requested lhat his ashes be
scattered from a boal. A gathering for this purpose is planned
for Saturday, January 21 al
1:30 pm at Egmont Wharf.
Parking bylaw
A review of the restaurant parking bylaw was ordered
December 13 by Gibsons Town council.
This was after Alderman Gerry Dixon asked Town Planner
Rob Buchan about the new Pronto's location on Highway
Planner Buchan said the town's commercial zone parking
bylaw has a history of being the mosl under assault as being
loo restrictive and punitive. The highways department requirements are higher lhan the town's and Pronto's actually
complied with these higher requirements, he said.
"If that's the case, then maybe we should have higher standards," said Dixon.

Early in November, Forests  Minister Dave Parker announced some interim policies for major changes in the Small  Business Forest Enterprise Program designed to "promote and  encourage further manufacturing through a new process of  awarding timber sales, a process  called 'bid proposals'."  December 15, at a meeting of  the Forestry Advisory Committee, Dave Bakewell told committee members that these were,  "some of the most inane forest  policies that I've ever seen come  out of the government."  Bakewell was part of a three-  person subcommittee which examined the new policies and  drew up recommendations for  changes before the final draft is  adopted by the provincial  government. In commenting on  the policy, the subcommittee explained that the interim policy is  poorly drafted and therefore  provides opportunity for, and  in fact encourages, bad faith  bidding on timber.  Under Ihe draft policy,  anyone could claim lo have the  intention of starting some  secondary manufacturing company for forest products. If lhat  person can obtain backing from  any of the large forest companies, he or she could submit a  proposal to the ministry of  forests. Based on the proposal,  lhal person could win the bid on  Pulp mill  expansion  discussed  The Uniied Church in Gibsons was the site of a day-long  Open House held on December  6 by Howe Sound Pulp to invite  public discussion aboul the projected community impacts of  ihe ongoing mill expansion. A  tolal of 40 persons attended the  Open House.  HSPP representative Harry  Cargo said that while the turnout al ihe Open House was  lower lhan anticipated, "many  of those who did attend were  obviously very well informed  and provided a number of constructive commenls."  The issue of dioxins in the environment provided a new clemenl lo ihe discussion, par-  licularly afler Ihe recent announcements lhal dioxins in  shellfish had prompled Fisheries  and Oceans Canada lo ban  commercial harvesting in some  waters.  Cargo staled, "We share people's concerns about the  presence of dioxins in the environment and feel the elimination of dioxin djshcarge from  the mill will be one of several  important steps to improving  environmental quality."  The Open House is the latest  step in a social impact assessment and management program  being conducted by HSPP in  conjunction with residents of  Gibsons and Ihe Sunshine  Coasl. Work on Ihe program  will continue early in the new  year, wilh effort directed to  assessing and evaluating social  impacts from Ihe mill expansion  and determining measures to  reduce the negative effecls and  increase Ihe positive impacts,  said Cargo.

There is no obligation after  lhat point, for the person to actually implement their proposal.  The logs could be sold to  anyone for any purpose, including export where the logs  fetch a high price. There is no  accountability in the new policy,  Fred Gazely lold the committee.  The Forestry Advisory Committee and ihe Sunshine Coast  Regional District have been supportive of the forestry management practices on the Sunshine  Coast. The new policy will wipe  those out, Bakewell said.  The concern expressed  throughout the letter which the  subcommittee drafted to be sent  lo the minister, was the negative  impact on the economy of the  Sunshine Coasl if the policy, as  drafted, were implemented.  "The intent of this program  is good," Gazeley said, "to pro-  mole secondary manufacturing.  But it's so poorly thought out  that it'll never get off the  ground. It's like a rocket with  no fuel."  "It'll be absolute chaos," added Bakewell.  The Forestry Advisory Committee agreed to forward the  subcommittee's recommendations to the minister of forests  by FAX before the closing  deadline for comments on December 15.

The board  also agreed to seek the support  of the Association of Vancouver Island Municipalities  and then the United Brilish Columbia Municipalities in an action to assure the integrity of  local zoning controls in the face  of a threat of this kind.  Il was said provincial heallh  authorities have been laking the  posilion that communily care  provisions of provincial health  legislation over-rides municipal  zoning bylaws. A September 28  court decision in a Prince  George appeal established lhal  local zoning bylaws could nol  be over-ridden, said SCRD  Chairperson Peggy Conrror.  "The SCRD start" sent a letter  yesterday saying our zoning  stands," Chairperson Connor  assured the property owners  delegation presenl al the board  meeting.  "I move we write to the  ministry or health expressing  our outrage lhal they would  over-ride our district bylaw,"  said SCRD Director Jim  Gurney. "Letting them hide  under ihe skirts or a provincial  ministry is stretching it too rar."  "We really have to jump on  this with both feet. This endangers the whole system of  local bylaws," said Director  Gurney.  SCRD board members approved the Gurney motion.  A citizen questioned how a  $600,000 investment could be  undertaken, renovations done,  staff hired and a business start  operating with apparent approval of provincial agencies,  withoul any notice to local  ralepayers.  "We're adamantly opposed  lo how this whole thing was  railroaded in," said ratepayer  spokesman Fred Gazeley.  The resident complaint was  of a property of 60 Chadwick  Road at the end of a cul-de-sac  owned by Exec-U-Care Treatment Center Inc., a privale  company, according to the  ratepayer letter tabled at the  meeling.

The program is sponsored by Air Canada and  facilitated by the B.C. and Yukon Community  Newspapers Association (BCYCNA).  The program provides award recognition for  young people who have shown ingenuity,  resourcefulness, fortitude, selfless service or performed single or continuing acts of courage. These  are young people who demonstrate a philosophy of  lile lhal centres on caring, giving and sharing.  They are positive role models, who inspire us  wiih Iheir energy and commitment. They help to  improve the lives of others in iheir communities,  and arc our hope for Ihe future.  Some of these youngsters may be 'unsung  heroes' who demonstrate quiel heroism in overcoming physical disabilities or psychological limitations, or by being involved in worthwhile communily service. Alternatively, Ihey may be 'local  heroes', known for an inspiring acl of courage.  The boys and girls honoured by the program  therefore exemplify key values of our society,  courage, resourcefulness, selflessness, ingenuity  and integrity.  Residents of B.C. and the Yukon may nominate  young people, ages 8 to 18, who have performed an  act or achievement of courage, initiative or  selflessness, who have displayed exemplary citizenship in the current period and prior years.  The nominator will complele a nomination  form, available at local member newspaper office,  and submit it, with two supporting signatures and  two supporting letters to the Brilish Columbia and  Yukon Community Newspapers Association, 414  -1033 Davie Slreet, Vancouver, B.C. V6E 1M7.  On February 17 the judging panel will meet in  Vancouver lo consider all nominations and choose  up lo len youngsters lo be honoured.  The award winning junior citizens of the year  will be presented by the Lieulenant-Governor, the  Honourable David C. Lam, a framed, detailed  citation certificate, a B.C. and Yukon Community  Newspapers Junior Citizen lapel pin, a cheque for  $200 and ceremony pholos.  All oiher young people nominated, but not  selected by the judges, will receive a certificate  acknowledging their nomination, accomplishments  and participation.  Persons wishing assistance in making nominations in the Sunshine Coast area are invited to contacl Coasl News Edilor, Harold Blaine for forms  and assistance. This should be done early in  January.  The awards ceremony for Ihe Junior Citizenship  awards will be hosted by Lt. Gov. Larn al Government House, Victoria, B.C. Thursday, March 16.  All winners and their parents or guardians will  be invited lo spend the day in Victoria, meel local  dignitaries, attend the awards ceremony, photo session and reception al Government House. Other  honoured guests will be representatives from Air  Canada, from member newspapers and from  BCYCNA.  Afler ihe award ceremony, recipients and iheir  parenls or guardians and representatives from Air  Canada and ihe BCYCNA will attend a special  awards dinner.  The development of the Junior Citizenship of  the Year awards program depends upon the  nomination of deserving young candidates. Any  resident of B.C. or the Yukon is eligible to  nominate someone.  Jusi send a documented account of ihe achievement and a completed nomination form. The role  of the nominator and support letter writers is the  mosl important contribution to ihe success of the  program.  Lt. Gov. Lam has offered to host the 1989  Junior Citizenship Awards program at Government House. He will present the awards to the  award winners.  His staff will organize the ceremony with BCYCNA and Air Canada assistance as required.

Letters to the Editor  Beware media manipulators  Editor:  This is Ihe lime of year in  which we should become more  conscious of an ingenious campaign to control public opinion  by manipulating ihe media.  A great many years ago, my  husband and I used lo read I.F.  Stone's Weekly. Izzy Stone and  his wife Esther used to pul it  together in Iheir own  Washinglon home.  They smuggled il oul secretly  to avoid delect ion by Richard  Nixon and Joseph McCarthy in  Iheir Un-American Activities  Committee. Attempting lo influence public opinion at thai  lime was illegal and dangerous.  Today that is all changed. A  number of years ago an  Australian publisher named  Rupen Murdock, the owner of  News CorporutioV which he  had Inherited from his father,  wenl lo England and bought a  popular Brilish daily paper.  First, he cut Ihe wages of the  editors, reporters and oilier  staff. The result was their  unions threatened to strike.  He fired them all, moved lo  another location to avoid  pickets and set up a new planl  making use of computers Ip  replace workers. He thus broke  the strike.  In this manner he spread lo  other parts of England, gobbled  up Penguin Books and many  olhers. Now he has tentacles all  over ihe world, in Italy, even  China.  He owns a global publishing  empire.  Murdock owns television stations, satellite broadcasting stations, every form of news  distribution you can name. He  has captured the news distribution services of Ihe United  Slates lo an alarming degree.  Pockets of resistance have  formed.  There are laws, apparently,  which regulate whai may and  what may nol be primed, but  these laws are confusing.  Senator Edward Kennedy has  laken issue with Murdock, but  withoul much success.  A small English publisher,  William Collin.;, however, is  successfully resisting absorplion  by Rupert Murdock.  Here in Canada we have been  captured by anolher force in Ihe  world of public opinion. He is  Ihe financier Conrad Black who  lasl year boughl up our fine old  monthly magazine, Salurday  Night.  It is interesting to note Henry  Kissinger is a shareholder, Ihe  man whose government agency  along with ihe CIA is alleged lo  have engineered the overthrow  of the legally elected governmenl of Salvador Allende in  Chile and installed the brutal  Tax foreign property owners  Editor's note - The following  letter has been received for  publication:  The Hon.

There was hardly any  announcement of the sale of  these properties in Ihe local  press, It's obvious intent was to  sell il lo Hong Kong Chinese,  from whom mosl probably a  better price can be expected.  ll appears to me lhat many  foreigners arc selecting Canada,  and in particular Vancouver, as  an ideal place to park their  wealth.

These foreigners who pay no  income or wealth tax in Canada  should be compelled lo pay for  Ihe "safe heaven" in which ihey  park their wealth.

Therefore, Ihese foreigners  should be asked to pay 30 per  cent of Ihe purchase value of the  properly by way of a "properly  purchase lax for non-residents  (non-income lax payers)". This  would result in properly prices  for residents to move within  reasonable upward limits and  might avoid the explosion of  property taxes as we have seen  in Vancouver.  In order lo avoid Ihe purchase of such real cslate by  residents on behalf of nonresidents, a properly appreciation sales lax should be introduced. This tax which would  be anti-speculation could be  based on the following princi-  Go slow  and live  Edilor:  There have been lots of commenls regarding Ihe recent article in the Coast News slating  thai Redrooffs Road is a killer.  We are all hcarlbroken when  we learn of fine young people  suffering injury and dealh on  any road, bul blame should not  be fully placed on the road.  The only lime lhal the  Sargeanls Bay seclion of  Redrooffs poses any danger is  when Ihere is ice or snow and  we are forced to slow down in  order to survive. Slowing down  to a reasonable speed helps us  survive in all kinds of conditions.  Herein lies the solution.  A vehicle can be a lethal  weapon in the hands of Ihe very  young who have noi been  taughl how lo properly control  this weapon. Emphasis should  be made on providing safe driving courses for new drivers and  insistence that such courses be  laken and passed before a driving license is grained.  As a resident of Redrooffs I  am constantly outraged al the  speed of traffic on this rural  road.  The bottom line is this. Don'l  expect the government or the  highways departmenl to build  us a four lane freeway on  Redrooffs or any olher such  rural road.

He made il inlo a popular national Canadian magazine,  reporting impartially upon whai  was happening all over Canada,  bolh politically and artistically.  Now all thai has changed.  The magazine has an extremely  righl wing bias.  Trade union leaders arc  ridiculed and, of course, the  NDP and its leaders.  Premier Vander Zalm is  praised and shown in a Haltering light.

Isabel Ralph  pie:  Properly sold wilhin one year  should pay 50 per cent of Ihe  profit [profit = sales price less  (purchase price plus inflation  rale)) by way of such apprecialion tax; if sold within iwo years  45 per cent lax, if sold within  three years 40 per cent tax, if  sold afler 10 years no lax is  payable.  Such la.xes are levied in mosl  developed countries and Ihey do  not preclude non-residents from  purchasing real estate, but ihey  have lo pay a fair price for  "safely".  I undersland that some such  laxes are already levied in Ontario, and it is highly recommended lhal swifl action is  laken i.e. before "ihe horse has  boiled", i.e. all of Vancouver  and BC has been snapped up by  foreigners.
