 The Sunshine  Leglsladve Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  r-ublished on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     August 29,1988      Volume 42      Issue 35  Any woman who thinks romance is dead has not met Paul Franske.  The local businessman proposed to his girlfriend Ruth Duffin  Wednesday following a catered four-course meal by the sea. (see  story below) ���Bruce Grierson photo  Romance alive on Sunshine Coast  How could she say no?  by Bruce Grierson  It promised to be a big night  for Ruth Duffin.  She would accompany her  boyfriend, Paul Franske, to a  Sechelt dinner meeting to  discuss a business proposal.  Paul suggested they look their  best to create a good impression.  The pair set out from Davis  Bay a few minutes early. To  make a stop in Roberts Creek,  Mr. Franske said.  They turned off the highway  toward the water, and entered  what looked like a private  driveway off Beach Avenue.  Then Mr. Franske slowed down  and stopped.  At once, out of the bushes  stepped local caterer, John Rev-  ington, wearing a black tux,  white gloves, and a black  bowler. Revington came up to  the car.  "Good evening," he said.  "Welcome to the meal of a  lifetime."  Revington led them down a  path to the beach.  "Paulll..." said Miss Duffin.  There on the secluded shore,  ten metres from the surf, sat  two hand-crafted chairs flanking a table, with a linen  tablecloth. On the table were  two place-settings in fine silver,  a candelabra, and a vase containing a single red rose.  "Paul, what's going on?"  Was it patronage?  said Miss Duffin. "Did you win  the lottery?"  The two were seated.  "The meal this evening will  consist of four courses," said  Revington, "You will be served  an appetizer of shrimp cocktail,  followed by a chicken  shishkebob with vegetables. The  entree will be choice-cut  marinated New York steak with  baby carrots, fresh broccoli in a  cheese sauce, and new potatoes.  Dessert will be a chocolate and  black cherry trifle with sherry."  Revington left the table and  returned with a corsage for Miss  Duffin.  "To drink, we have a dry  French wine and a sweeter German wine!  "I didn't hear a thing you  just said," she replied.  Then local classically-trained  singer Arline Collins appeared,  and began to serenade the two  with a miscellany of love songs,  including The Rose, and  Moonlight Cocktail.  The meal came, each course  served on fine bone china.  Somewhere between the  sherry trifle and the after-dinner  liqueur, Mr. Franske got up  from the table, produced a ring,  and proposed.  Her answer? As Miss Duffin  reflected the next day, "How  could you turn down a guy who  does something like that?"  The wedding is tentatively  scheduled for late October.  Publisher seeks inquiry  by Penny Fuller  Irregularities in the tendering  process for Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  advertising have prompted  Coast News publisher John  Burnside to contact the Ombudsman's Office. Burnside is  angry that, in spite of an SCRD  staff recommendation that the  Coast News' bid be accepted  due to lower cost and superior  service, the board of directors at  the July 28 meeting decided to  ignore the recommendation and  divide the advertising budget  between the two local  newspapers.  "In this particular case, I find  it totally unacceptable that the  editor of the Press, Al Price,  was permitted to join in the  discussion from the public  gallery, arguing against the staff  recommendation," Burnside  said in an interview last week.  More confusion in the process arose at the August 11  meeling of the board. Although  types of the previous meeting  Indicate an assumption that the  advertising would stay with the  Coast News until December 31,  1988 and then pass to The Press  for the next six months, and  staff had sent letters to both  papers advising them of that  decision, Area A Director Gordon Wilson moved that the  SCRD advertising be placed  with The Press as of September  1, 1988, suggesting that 'cash  flow' was an issue for the small  papers.  . Burnside   is   angry   about  Wilson's intervention in the  process. On July 28, Wilson had  also made the motion to overturn the staff recommendation  and negate the tendering process.  "It is particularly difficult,"  said Burnside, "to understand  Director Wilson's repeated and  successful attempts to subvert  the tendering process. Two  years ago, it was Director  Wilson who emphatically urged  that politicians should not exert  undue influence in the tendering  process.  "We will, if possible, be asking the Ombudsman to try to  establish whether or not there  was undue influence peddling or  McGillivray in action  patronage on the part of Director Wilson on behalf of a  known political supporter."  "I think it is imperative that a  responsible and objective third  party look at this question,"  said Burnside.  Burnside noted that, as the  provincial leader of the B.C.  Liberal Party, Wilson was an  emphatic and colourful critic of  provincial government practices. "If Wilson's going to  throw political stones then he  has to be sure he's not living in a  glass house," said the Coast  News publisher.  In spite of a presentation to  the board outlining the Coast  News' objections to interference  in the tendering process, at last  Thursday's SCRD board  meeting, Area E director Jim  Gurney moved that the situation remain as agreed to at the  August 11 meeting, but that letters of apology be sent to both  newspapers, and in future that  the tendering process for advertising be handled in the same  way as tendering for any other  goods or services.  The Coast News publisher is  not satisfied with an apology,  "We can't take an apology to  the bank. We won the bid but  lost the business."  Burnside has contacted the  Ombudsman and is waiting to  hear whether or not they have  jurisdiction in this matter.  Sounding restructuring alarm  by Penny Fuller  Reports that Gibsons is planning to include the Port Mellon  mill in their restructuring plans  prompted Regional Director  Brett McGillivray to put forward two resolutions about  Gibsons restructuring at a  regional board meeting last  Thursday.  McGillivray introduced his  first resolution by stating, "I  want to make it clear that I'm  not opposed to restructuring,  but the melting-pot vote does  not have to take place. This  resolution provides for separate  tallies in each area."  The director was referring to  the process which took place a  few years ago when the Village  of Sechelt held a referendum to  expand its boundaries. At that  time West Sechelt, a large portion of Area C, the Davis Bay  area, and another in the  Tuwanek/Sandy Hook area  became part of Sechelt. The  vote passed by a slim margin of  737 people in favour and 668  opposed. The votes were all  counted as one unit and some  directors questioned the validity  of having the areas taken into  restructuring due to the large  number of yes votes in Sechelt.  McGillivray's motion was to  request the Minister of  Municipal Affairs to insist that,  if there is a referendum on  restructuring the boundaries of  Gibsons, there will be Ihree  separate polls, one in each area  (Areas E, F and Gibsons)  resulting in three independent  final tallies.  Gibsons alderman Norm  Peterson's attempt to have the  resolution tabled until the next  meeting failed, and the motion  was passed with the two  municipal representatives opposed.  The second resolution put  Please turn to page 4  Gibsons Retirement  Development  is doubtful  by Bruce Grierson  It appears that the proposed  38-unit retirement village  "Marina Place" may not go  ahead.  At a special meeting held  Tuesday, Gibsons Council  voted down a zoning amendment by-law and a community  amendment by-law, which  would have allowed the  developers to proceed with their  plans, effectively squashing the  project, proposed for the land  behind the old Ritz Motel.  At its August 16 meeting,  council passed a motion that a  restrictive covenant be  registered against the land title,  or something equivalent to a  restrictive covenant be put into  place, in order to ensure that the  site is indeed to be used for a  retirement village.  Developer Art McGinnis had  said, at a public hearing on the  matter that "working drawings  should be enough", and that "a  covenant on the title might  make it difficult to get financing."  In a letter FAXed to council  Monday, McGinnis stated he  was "not prepared to enter into  the restrictive covenant."  "So," alderman Jerry Dixon  summarized to council Tuesday, before the vote, "if we insist on a restrictive covenant,  the project dies."  The developer had signed a  'letter of undertaking',  however, promising to develop  the property and allowing council to withhold a building permit  if any deviation from the  original plan were to occur.  Since council had already  voted to impose a restrictive  covenant or its equivalent, the  first task became determining if  a letter of undertaking was, in  fact, equivalent to a restrictive  covenant.  "The difference between the  two," explained Municipal  Clerk Lorraine Goddard," is  that a restrictive covenant offers  protection against future  owners who deviate from the  original plans, while a letter of  undertaking is binding only on  the people who signed it."  "Most municipalities in B.C.  are now using restrictive  covenants, and not letters of  undertaking," added municipal  planner Rob Buchan.  While he admitted that a  restrictive covenant could still  be challenged under the Charter  of Rights and Freedoms,  Buchan added, "it's the best  vehicle we have going, which is  why it was introduced into the  development game."  The consensus of council was  tjat the two were not  equivalent; but the debate on  whether or not to accept a letter  of intent continued, wjth Mayor  Strom and alderman Kunstler  favouring the idea, and the rest  resisting it.  "For years the development  in this town - before the restrictive covenant came into place  -has been on a letter of intent,  and that has sufficed," said  Strom. "We have the  mechanisms in place to stop the  development if we had to. If the  land did sell, we'd have the option right away of rezoning it,  so that nothing else could be  built there."  "I think we should allow the  project to go ahead with the letter of intent," added Kunstler.  "Otherwise, we're sending out  messages to everyone that we're  not interested in development."  The mayor added that she felt  the whole issue boiled down to  council being "for, or against  development."  "I'd like to see it go ahead,  Please turn to page 8  Blood donor clinic  in Sechelt  A blood donor clinic will be held September 6 between 2  and 8 pm at the Sechell Legion Hall. All Coasters over 18 are  encouraged to come out and give 'the gift of life'.  In the long, hot summer, the young man's thoughts turn to cold  hard cash. Casey Dalen spent most of Friday near the lower Gibsons hairpin, serenading passers-by with Mozart's Twinkle,  Twinkle, Little Star, and accepting the odd pour-boire for himself.  ���Bruce Grierson photo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, August 29,1988  A matter  of principle  We apologize that our own business concerns intrude into the news of the community this week. We beg you, dear  readers, to understand that there is an important principle  of democracy at stake.  In the matter of the placing of SCRD advertising, let it  be clearly understood that the SCRD has the right to place  its advertising wherever it sees fit. It can give it to both  newspapers, to one newspaper, alternate it between  newspapers, or any other policy acceptable to the directors.  Having decided, however, on June 16th to go to competitive tender the Board initiated a policy process which  ought to have been seen through to an orderly conclusion.  That did not happen.  In the process, a man who leads one of our political parties and who could conceivably one day be our premier  took several actions which are open to serious criticism. At  best, there was a remarkable lack of judgement in the activities of Director Gordon Wilson throughout the piece.  The headlines of our daily papers are full of stories of  the misuse of public office. Not because we are the victims  only do we determine to ascertain, if we can, that public  officials here on the Coast are not using the public purse as  a means to furthering the well being of their supporters or  their own political ends.  A welcome  note of romance  Our hats are off this week to Paul Franske who conceived of and brought about a wedding proposal dinner which  brings a joyous and welcome note of romance into a world  which sometimes seems to have lost all romance.with joy  in constant jeopardy.  Surely there can be few women in the history of  mankind who could claim a more romantic setting for a  marriage proposal than Ruth Duffin's man provided. It is  a story that will be told and retold as long as there are  generations in their family to tell it.  God bless you both and give you joy of your life  together.  S YEARS AGO  A local branch of the provincial Solidarity Coalition was  formed last week when over 50 people met in St. Bartholomew's Church Hall to formulate policy and discuss  organization of the Sunshine Coast Coalition. Hans Pen-  ner, president of the Sunshine Coast Joint Council of  Unions and chairman of the meeting pointed out that to  oppose the legislation without proposing alternatives was  of no use, and he forecast a massive reduction in the standard of living if the legislation goes unchecked.  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board voted at  Thursday's meeting to send a telegram and letter to the  B.C. Ferry Corporation protesting anticipated cuts in the  winter ferry schedule.  Two local men travelled to Powell River to compete as a  team against 18 other teams in the 7th Annual Sidewinder  Rodeo Championships. Jim Peers Sr. and Clint Suveges  finished a respectable second, with Jimmy operating the  sidewinder and Clint doing the work on the logs.  10 YEARS AGO  On the weekend, four 50-pound drums of Tordon 10-K  was dumped into Salmon Inlet at Clowholm Falls.  Juveniles are believed to have been involved.  Local publican John Kavanagh was the first to sample  the first draft beer available, following the beer strike.  15 YEARS AGO  Big John Wayne, Hollywood's screen heavy, sailed into  Gibsons Harbour recently, aboard his luxury cruiser The  Wild Goose, a converted US naval minesweeper.  20 YEARS AGO  An order for the removal of structures on the Joseph H.  Unland property, Dougal Road, Gibsons, because they  were a nuisance and offensive to the community, was confirmed at Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons Council.  25 YEARS AGO  Six thousand dollars damage was caused by the complete destruction of the Johnson home on North Road  shortly after 9:30 pm on Wednesday.  30 YEARS AGO  Highlighted by the largest catch of net-caught spring  salmon for many years, British Columbia fishermen's earnings in June totalled $3,384,000 as against $2,533,000 in  the same period last year, according to Federal Department of Fisheries statistics.  35 YEARS AGO  A report has been given to the RCMP concerning vandalism at Gospel Rock. It appears as though young boys in  their teens have been observed destroying arbutus trees in  the area.  40 YEARS AGO  An announcement was made yesterday by Canadian  Pacific Steamships that the SS Princess Mary will be  taken out of service for a minimum of 10 days for emergency repairs. The result Is that all automobile transport In  and out of this district will be eliminated after tonight.  The Sunshine  mm mm  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

It seems that every  time we turn around the posties  are packing it in again.  Those among us who think  by reflex action are muttering  sourly into their morning cornflakes, no doubt, about those  dreadful trade unions, their  demands and their irresponsibility.  Portly gentlemen with more  money than mind are assuring  each other over the hors  d'oeuvres and the cocktails thai  the unreflective bigotry which  they woke up with has been  borne out by this most recent  failure in the negotiation process involving those who deliver  their mail.  But, as surely as it takes two  to tango, it takes two to tangle  and the management of the post  office is as involved in the  negotations that fail as the  employees that they regularly  fail to manage.  It is a simple truism thai if the  perennial problems of the post  office are to be solved il will not  be by union bashing, either by  management or the general  public. All aspects of the situation are going to have to be  taken into account, and that includes the government policies  which set union and management on a collision course from  the very beginning.  Do you remember those first  brave days of the Mulroney administration when the Prime  Minister, evincing from every  pore that indignation of hollow  righteousness which is his enduring trademark, and his brave  Cabinet band declared war on  the astronomical deficit that  those Knavish Liberals had run  up.  This was before they became  inebriated by contact with the  levers of power, before they  tried to saddle us with $10  billion worth of nuclear-  powered submarines with which  to play hide and seek under the  Arctic ice.  Only a hostile public reaction  and the imminence of an election have so far saved us from  this grandiose and expensive  folly.  Anyway, back in those days  of determined deficit cutting  and money saving there was  steely resolution in the air, as  spurious as the indignation, and  the post office was informed,  thai is to say the management  was informed that the post office would have to be made profitable in three years or their  own expensive heads would roll.  It was the fast track to postal  solvency and the signposts read  increased costs to the Canadian  Public; reduction in services to  the Canadian public; and all  speed ahead on automation.  Get rid of as many of those  troublesome workers as possible, there is no time to lose.  It was a government-  provided recipe for confrontation, conflict, and the resultant  and familiar inefficiencies ol  service interruption and enduring ill will between management  and its workers.  Sparked by the government  threats to their own well-being  and their long-reported penchant for autocracy, the  management went to work with  zeal along the path laid out for  them by their masters in Ottawa.  In vain, is it reported that in  those countries with the best  record of labour peace there is a  joint approach taken to  problem-solving with representatives of government, management, and the trade unions sitting down together to formulate  policy goals which will maximize efficiency and reduce conflict.  No, anxious to make a quick  name for itself and to indulge in  a little post-election Liberal  bashing, our federal government took the approach of the  steamroller and instructed its  management to take the same  approach and to flatten all problems that appeared in the path  by might alone.  Not for Canada Post, the  path proven effective of cooperation and consultation.  If your cheques are delayed in  the present postal strike or letters from loved ones are long  awaited, do try to see beyond  the effects to the causes. It is  always an interesting exercise  and in the case of postal strikes  it may just save you from  unreflective bigotry, either over  your cornflakes or your  cocktails.  %.

(It is  the same air we breathe above  ground. Pure oxygen actually  becomes lethal at sufficient  depth). The sound suggests  Darth Vadar with a touch of  asthma.  I push a button and my  jacket belches air and I begin to  sink. The sea comes up over my  mask. I'm underwater. Against  all the natural instincts of the  parasympathetic system, I'm  breathing under water.  Things are moving by, now..  Bubbles from my reg, and algae  and thin filaments of seaweed.  Jellyfish puff past like little  showgirls, skirts billowing and  settling in eerie concord. It's  spectacular. Like in that movie  where they inject a small submarine into the bloodstream of  some eminent scientist.  The migrating bubbles slow  down, and I stop sinking, and  stop, suspended, motionless, 15  feet below the surface. This is  absolute weightlessness; what  divers call neutral buoyancy; the  nautical analog to deep space:  (And the reason why SCUBA  or self-contained underwater  breathing apparatus work: is an  integral part of the NASA  astronaut training program).  Limbs find their own positions,  easing the body into a half-  sitting posture. Vertebrae  decompress. The body relaxes  completely.  Here the only reference point  is the light that seeps down  through the surface of the sea.  The concepts of up and down  are immaterial. Gravity no  longer applies. Indeed, divers in  northern climes have taken to  playing hockey on the underside  of frozen lakes, upside-down,  as it were, vests inflated to  create an artificial inverse gravity.  Quite suddenly I'm aware of  something passing over top of  me. Something large. I stop  breathing. (Not a good idea, by  the way, underwater. If you're  rising or sinking at the time, you  can pop an eardrum, a  phenomenon known unofficially as 'rupture of the deep.') It  stops, above me, blocking the  light. There are places on this  coast, I have been told, where  you will be joined on your dive  by sea lions, great, mute half-  ton forms that w"i shadow you  as you swim. Kick your fins,  they'll kick their tails. Roll onto  your back and the lions will roll  onto their backs.  I look up. Doug hovers above  me, like some slick float in the  Macy's parade.  He gives a dolphin kick and  dives, and I pump a fin and  turn, gyroscopic, bleed air and  begin to sink.  The water is green and soupy,  A little has leaked into my mask  and I apply pressure to the top  and snuffle it out, as I've been  taught.  My own gloved hand looms  huge in front of me. (Light  refraction makes things look  half as big again as they really  are.) There is pressure on my  ears. I pinch my nose and blow,  hear the rim-shot as the drums  snap out, and I'm equalized,  drifting down in silence like a  rose petal.  Then, at once, we're through  it. And it's dead clear, a thick  algal ceiling above us like a  cloud bank, a dark foreign  landscape below. We've emerged over what looks like a huge  bed of romaine lettuce. This is  Laminaria algae, great leaves of  it, wagging in the ocean current.  Under me is a sea anenome,  its whiskered lips yawning open.  I touch the tip and the whole  thing rudely constricts, inviting  the notion that the sea is not as  user-friendly as one might expect. The truth, of course, is  that we aren't users at all, but  rather, visitors, obliged to  follow the same rule of decorum  as in any person's home.  I recall an incident that occurred during my open water test in  the Gulf Islands.

The municipality is on the verge of putting in culverts from Medusa  Street to the marsh, which will  cause irreversible damage.  Let's put aside for the moment the joy this provides for  our local nature lovers and kids,  and our environmental concerns. Let's put it into a context  that all the local business community and developers can also  rally behind.  We   spend   thousands   of  dollars and constantly look for  ways to attract tourists and  retirees. How many communities can boast having  Canada's national animal so  close, highly visible and so  'tame' that we can watch with  ease? What an incredible tourist  draw for an area that is trying to  promote tourism - and it is  about to be destroyed! The people who frequenl the marsh find  this incredible.  Most people choosing to live  here prize our rural environment. Much could be done  relatively inexpensively to  beautify and enhance this small  strip of land (e.g. Weeping  willows and shrubs) to make it a  pleasant respite in the center of  Sechelt. A parklike walkway  with birds and beaver from the  new Senior's Center to the  marsh would enhance their  development immensely.  I understand that North Vancouver is trying desperately to  undo the damage of past years  and reclaim 'dead' creeks from  the damage caused by culverts,  so let's learn from their  mistakes. We need the foresight  which Sechelt Council recently  showed in obtaining Acacia  Park.  Not only is the culvert going  to destroy the beaver habitat,  but it is expensive and, 1 would  also suggest, of dubious value.  Safety of children is a priority  always, but a small fence to  deter little ones is practical and  would be a lot cheaper!  Mayor Koch has indicated he  and council are interested in examining the alternatives and has  suggested delaying the planned  start of August 29 to allow for  community input. Anyone interested in the marsh and beaver  themselves, or in the draw for  tourism, should act immediately  to let the council know because  it will soon be too late. They  seem willing to listen, so we  must make ourselves heard.

These  are at Soames, Granthams and  Hopkins, which are incorporated under the Water Act,  and at Langdale where the  system is owned and operated  by the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  As regards the three Improvement Districts; these groups  own assets which include  distribution systems, storage  tanks, pumps, wells, land, and  financial investmenls which  have been paid for entirely by  the property owners of each  District. These people have  built, developed, financed, and  administered these systems by  voluntary effort for many  years. In some cases, they have  backed bank loans with their  own personal assets. For  anyone to suggest that the assets  of these organizations should be  turned over to a greater  Municipality without any compensation to the owners is, in  my view, completely uncaring  and unjust.  To suggest that these systems  are inadequate is also not correct. Hopkins Landing has a  system of six inch and four inch  mains, a 275,000 litre storage  tank, ten fire hydrants and five  standpipes to serve a community of 130 homes, which, I'm  sure is just as adequate as any  similar sized area of the Town  of Gibsons.  As for the Langdale water  system,   I   notice  a  peculiar  silence as to how those assets  are to be obtained from the  Regional District.  To date, no member of the  Committee or its Consultant  has contacted the organization  that i represent about any  transfer of holdings. I would  also point out that we have a letter from Mrs. Rita Johnston,  Minister of Municipal Affairs,  stating that the assets and  operation of Improvement  Districts need not be taken over  by the proposed Municipality.  Hopkins Landing is presently  seeking legal advice on this matter.  David Fyles, Manager  Hopkins Landing  Waterworks District.  Council decision applauded  Editor:  In light of recent actions taking place in the Town of Gibsons it was rewarding to observe  the resulting vote with respect to  the Marina Place application at  the special meeting of council  held August 23, 1988.  As residents of the immediate  area we were vocal in expressing  support once given an opportunity to view a set of plans and  saw council address the concerns of sewage treatment and  water supply. What we as taxpayers requested was a show of  good faith by means available  to council to ensure completion  and prove intent of this project.  Rob Buchan listened and  recommended to council a  restrictive covenant or its  equivalent as an amendment to  protect the application remaining as a retirement village,  resulting in a vote in its favour.  The August 23 meeting could  have seen this recommendation  and its subsequent adoption ignored had it not been for the  directness of aldermen  Reynolds and Dixon, who  would not be swayed by threats  of project failure and voted in  accordance with the rules as  they understood them.  It is unfortunate that this pro  ject would not proceed as a  result of a developer wanting to  dictate zoning requirements but  we can only applaud those  members of council and our  Planner and hope they continue  to approach our rapid growth  and development with just such  cautiousness.

"It's been a great summer!" ���Vera Elliott photo  Sees no need  Gibsons refuses to  support PALS  Although the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) is interested, and the District  Municipality of Sechelt is supportive, efforts by the Peninsula  Association for Leisure Services  (PALS) to sponsor a comprehensive study assessing  leisure facilities and recommending a development plan for the  Sunshine Coast may come to  nothing if the Town of Gibsons  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  B&D SPORTS  in Sunnycrest Mali  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly Paopla Place"  refuses its support for the project.  At last week's meeting of the  SCRD board, Gibsons  representative, Alderman Norm  Peterson explained "Gibsons is  not prepared to put any funding  into it. We don't see the need  for it."  Sechelt Alderman Bob  Wilson expressed his concern  with Gibsons' reluctance, saying  that at the meeting between  municipal representatives and  the consultant being considered  for the study, the general feeling  was that either all four government bodies, Sechelt, SCRD,  Gibsons and the Sechelt Indian  Government District participated or none at all.  Area A director Gordon  Wilson pointed out that much  of the information that will be  needed could be provided by the  various jurisdictions and suggested that the cost might be  lower than the $30,000 which  Peterson said was quoted to  Gibsons council.  Representatives from PALS  had presented their first draft of  the Study outline to the SCRD's  Liaison Committee earlier in the  day, and Gordon Wilson, who  chairs that committee, told the  board that they would be coming to the board with a revised  outline. He encouraged the  board to take a 'positive approach' and to offer assistance  in the coordinating process.  "These people have a lot of  positive enthusiasm and we  don't want to discourage  them," he said.  Restructuring alarm  is sounded  Continued from page 1  forward by McGillivray, also  opposed by the municipalities,  was a statement of 'strenuous  opposition' by the regional  board to the inclusion of the industrial area from Williamsons  Landing north.  Sechelt alderman Bob Wilson  protested, "Supporting or pas-  ing this motion puts the SCRD  in direct opposition to the  democratic process."  Rural directors appeared to  be unanimous in the opinion  that the loss of the tax base in  Port Mellon would be financially disastrous for the rest of the  Sunshine Coast.  McGillivray said that his  "worst fears have been that,  under restructuring, the industrial tax base would go to  one area instead of being shared  by all."  Currently, the industrial taxes  go to the regional district, of  which Sechelt, Gibsons and all  the rural areas are members.  The second motion passed as  was a third and final motion to  write to the chairman of the  restructuring committee and request a meeting, "to discuss the  implications of restructuring to  the entire Sunshine Coast."  -SENIORS' DAY  === Special  BRITAIN!  from 5 Wll   rtn.

Last week  the one-year-old collie led the R.C.M.P. to a 16-year-old youth, who had bolted from a wilderness camp'  for juvenile offenders. The police were about to call off the search when they heard Lassie, barking with  ardour, near the corner of Joe Road and Highway 101. A subsequent tour of the area turned up the  AWOL VOUth. -Bruce Grierson photo  Roberts    Creek  Support for 'Jaws of Life'  by Jeannie Parker, 885-2163  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department recently received a cheque for $7,508 from the  B.C. Lottery Fund for the Jaws  of Life. The equipment was  purchased last March out of  donations and the Fire Department's budget, so the grant will  be used to offset part of the taxpayers' contribution.  The $22,000 purchase was  helped in a major way by a  $5,000 donation from the  Roberts Creek Legion, $1800  from a rescue wagon fund set  up in memory of Albert  Danroth, $1800 in donations  from the Christmas lights  display at Weal's last year and  several personal contributions  from members of the community.   The   RCVFD   also   ap  preciates the efforts of MLA  Harold Long in helping them  acquire the Lotteries grant.  Roberts Creek's Jaws were  the First on the Coast and they  have been available for  assistance in neighbouring  areas. Gibsons is following the  Creek's lead and will purchase  the same type of equipment.  The Creek's equipment has  already been used once, and one  life saved makes the tool invaluable.  LEGION LIVENING UP  It's been relatively quiet at  the Roberts Creek Legion this  summer except for one Tuesday  night when Elmer Gill dropped  by. The internationally renowned jazz pianist played and sang  many popular songs with a  soul-stirring interpretation.  ADULT UPGRADING  Miss out on high school? Do you need  to review what you knew?

LANGDALE HELPFUL      ~  I'm sure the folks at the ferry  terminal put up with a lot from  people, including hordes of kids  going to summer camp, so I was  really impressed with the service  they provided one Girl Guide  last weekend when she lost her  baggage. They spent the afternoon tracking it down after it  had made a couple of trips to  Departure Bay and the  Nanaimo bus depot, and they  were considerate enough to  phone with progress reports.  Many thanks from the  caretakers at Camp Olave for  your perseverance, service and  tolerance.  NO NEWS?  To those who've missed this  column the last month or so I  apologize. Community activities  seem to wind down in the summer so there's not much to write  about and I've been too busy to  make anything up.  I also have the problem of being out of the thick of things  these days so I need all the help  I can get to keep this column  filled.

ACTIVITY CENTRE  There seems to be some question about the mechanics, advantages and disadvantages of a  Seniors' Activity Centre versus  a Community Centre in Sechelt.  Other than where the financing is coming from, it seems  that Ihere will be very little difference between the two.  Whether the centre is privately  owned or community owned,  the people who use it are the  ones who are going to have to  pay for heating, hydro, water,  mainlenance and cleaning etc.  There are no 'free lunches' any  more.  Our hall, when completed,  will accommodate four or five  different activities at once and,  like our present obsolete  building, will be used by a  number of local clubs and  organizations who must have a  place to 'do their thing', and  will pay for the privilege of using the facility to do it in.  Whether the centre is private  or community owned will make  very little difference to these  people. It will, however, make a  great deal of difference to our  members. If we own the facility,  we govern our own schedule,  fitting community activities  around it. This is the way it has  worked in our present hall for  over 20 years, without major incident.  Keep in mind also, that our  hall is available, without charge,  to the District of Sechelt for  public meetings if the gathering  is too large for the municipal  hall.  One other item that the  general public may not be aware  of is the availability of the  building, without charge, to  local authorities in the event of  local disaster, such as a plane  crash, major fire, etc.  You will find that the Seniors' Activity Centre will fill the  bill of a community centre, with  scheduled events being governed by the seniors. In other  words, it won't be 'seniors  only'.  The business community  should be behind us 200 percent  to get this centre going, and to  encourage an influx of new  seniors to our area, with all that  lovely built-in payroll to spend  in local shops. Think about it!  The main thing is, the community is in need of this facility,  and the seniors, with hard  work, are half way there. Cheques may be mailed to Jean  Sherlock.

Someone near and dear to me  has been told he has the BIG  "C" - cancer. This man has faced hardships and adversities  most of his life, and this too, he  is taking in his stride, a mere inconvenience.  However, the one thing that  has nearly defeated him is being  told by some of the doctors involved, "Well, after all, you are  80 years old." Like is this it? Is  80 a drop-off point to oblivion?  Must there be no tomorrow?  Try telling the octogenarian  playing golf here on the Sunshine Coast that because he is 80  he is supposed to be home composing himself for the eternal  life. He would likely lash out  with his mashie, and rightly so.  With all the millions supposedly being poured into  research on many diseases,  should we not expect to live well  beyond 80?

The show features a local  Beachcomber teenager named  Jenny, who last year lost the use  of her legs in a water-skiing accident. Now confined to a  wheelchair, though still emotionally unbounded, Jenny uncovers a story about a toxic  waste spill, and brings the information to the Coast News editor  for publication in the paper.  Location  shooting,   if one  PubJi,  Hours:  T"esday  .^"esday  1 "ursday  Salurday  st��Rvt,me  Gibsons  K'fc Library  J__*_JOam  might call it that, is part of the  Beachcombers' philosophy.  Rarely are special sets constructed when the real thing can  be used, at less cost and with  greater authenticity.  For this episode, the  Beachcombers crew used much  of the paper's own equipment-  photographic trays, dummy  page flats and the like - as  props. But some creative license  was taken with the use of the  backshop space. The darkroom,  for instance, proved too small  to allow Jenny to wheel about.  So the larger PMT room, where  the pages are shot on production day, was used instead.  According to props buyer  John Baxter, the substitution  worked out well.  "The PMT room looked  more like a darkroom than a  darkroom," says Baxter. "The  darkroom was too dark."  On two successive Mondays,  the Beachcombers had their way  with the office. Since the crew  insists on absolute silence dur-  uS  NOTICE  of  PUBLIC HEARING  Pursuant to Section 956 and 957 of the Municipal  Act, a PUBLIC HEARING will be held in the  Municipal Hall, 474 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons  on Monday, September 12,1988 at 7:00 p.m. to consider Bylaw No. 520-2,1988 which bylaw Is proposed  to amend the Official Community Plan Bylaw No.  520,1985 of the Town of Gibsons.  It is the intent of the amending bylaw that:  1.

The  bylaw may be inspected at the Municipal Hall, 474  South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C. during office  hours.  Rob Buchan  Municipal Planner & Approving Officer  ing the filming of the action, all  potential distractions were  eliminated: Traffic was stopped  on Cruice Lane outside the office; phones were disconnected;  the typesetting machine was  shut off; even the fridge was  unplugged. Coast News  customers were obliged to sneak  in the side door, goose-stepping  over monster cables, trying to  avoid being put to work as they  made their way to the front office.  The heat of Ihe lights, the  equipmenl, and the 30-odd  bodies in the backshop made  working conditions less than  pleasant. Even with the doors  and windows open, "it was hotter inside than oul", observed  Jane Bond, who was an extra in  the episode.  The Beachcombers typically  film interiors when the weather  is grim. The first Coast News  scene was shot on a "rain  cover" day, one of 24 such days  already required this season. By  comparison, only one rain cover  day was needed last year.  Gibsons  development  may be  in doubt  Continued from page 1  but I'd hesitate to allow it  without a restrictive covenant,"  said Dixon.  "If council doesn't accept a  restrictive covenant, then I feel  we are not doing our best to  protect the people of the area,"  said Reynolds.  "I'm not against development, but I do think we have to  be adequately protected, "he  said.  Reynolds suggested a third  option - an unregistered covenant lhat could be placed on the  land title if the developers  reneged - but it was called  "highly illegal"  by  Peterson  "So council, you must decide  whether the risk of the  developers not performing as  planned outweighs the potential  benefits to the community,"  summarized Strom.  Alderman Norm Peterson, a  realtor, left the table to avoid  any conflict of interest.  As per a previous council  decision, the two by-laws were  not to be voted on until 'a  restrictive covenant, or its  equivalent' had been provided  by the developer.  Nevertheless, Dixon moved  that the fust by-law be read,  and Kunstle seconded the motion. The vote was taken and  the motion apparently passed.  Then it was revealed that Dixon had misunderstood the implications of the motion, and  some confusion resulted.  Another vote was taken, and  both the zoning amendment bylaw and the community plan bylaw, were defeated.  Contacted by the Coast News  for his comments, McGinnis  said he doesn't consider the  issue dead. The developer blamed council's decision on a  'misunderstanding', and said  the matter "must be reevaluated on each side."  McGinnis would not  speculate on what might happen  if Gibsons council refuses to  budge.  "If you're a positive thinker,  you have to think in positive  terms, not negative terms," he  said.

On Friday morning, as 1 was  driving to Sechelt, the tire that 1  knew needed replacement finally went very flat, rather abruptly. Fortunately (I thought)  changing a tire is no big deal,  just an inconvenience, and  when the gentleman in the red  van stopped and offered his  assistance, I foolishly declined.  1 soon discovered, much to  my frustration and embarrassment, that 1 was unable to  loosen all of the nuts holding  the wheel on, no matter how  much I leaned, cursed, pushed,  grunted, swore, sweated and  generally fought with the tire  iron.  Then, appearing almost  magically on that deserted  stretch of Middle Point Road,  my rescuer, in the form of Mr.  Jack Cook, showed up to  wrench loose the stubborn nuts  and efficiently complete the job.  Many thanks to Jack for  helping me out, and for being  kind to my pride by saying that  my difficulty was due to the inferior design of the wheel  wrench.

We continue to have lots of  visitors around Egmont, and  this past week we've had some  strange-looking 'visitors' in  North Lake. Would you believe  it, we have fresh-water jellyfish.  I've never seen them before.  My daughter and the grandchildren discovered and collected some of these creatures,  ranging in size from about three  centimeters in diameter. They  looked and moved like the  jellyfish found in the ocean. We  were amazed at finding them,  and my daughter 'phoned the  fisheries office at Pender Harbour to find out what the  animals were. The staff went to  a loi of trouble to research them  and gave her the following information:  The fish are called  craspedacuta sowerby and are  one of two varieties of fresh  water jellyfish. They may  reproduce as frequently as once  a year and as infrequently as  once in 20 years. They are not  known to sting or cause any ill  effects.  I don't know how long these  will be visible in North Lake but  as I write this they've been  around for four days. It's easy  to see them from the float. It  certainly seems strange to have  jellyfish in a lake.  PENDER  DIESEL  HARBOUR  CO. LTD.

"Everything prepared by  volunteers," said the lady who  among other chores, sold raffle  tickets on a polled shrub.  "We're all volunteers."  There was much about this  Festival, too, that reminded old  Prairie residents like me of Ihe  Chautauqua programs of Ihe  IWs. Not quite a similarity of  programs, bul certainly the concentrated few days of entertainment and enlightenmenl and the  lent on the vacant lot were  much like our Festival. The  number of tickets the volunteers  sold beforehand determined the  number of days of Chautauqua  In any one lown.  Of course the performers  then, whether musician, actor,  or professional lecturer did not  have the consistency of theme  lhat our Festival has. But there  was the same rich abundance of  presentations all compressed inlo a couple of days.  In her publication. West Van  Guide, l.eonore Luzardo (Ihe  designer of Ihe Gibsons flag)  tells of ihe growing fame of the  Festival of (he Written Arts. A  festival that has broughl such  Canadian writers of fame as  W.O. Mitchell, Ihe lale George  Ryga, and Dorothy Livesay to  the tent in Sechell.  Leonore tells of the Fesiival  growing from a six-event affair  in 1983 lo this year's 16-evenl,  one that required the use of  both the lent and Greenecourt.  And the Writers-in-Residence  programs, begun in 1986, could  this year accommodate 48  students in Rockwood Lodge in  10 days spread before and after  the Festival.  Leonore's article concludes,  "...not just a joyful test of  stamina as one reviewer put it.  It provides nourishment of Ihe  body as well as the mind." And  she listed lunches outdoors  under the new blue and yellow  umbrellas, and the barbecue,  and the buffet.

Noles from Iwo of the sessions thai I attended: Barry  Broadfoot, an outstanding  editor and compiler of taped  recollections of stressful times,  bul an awkward speaker who  misused Ihe microphone, gave a  tiresome review of his career as  a journalist, and lacked delicacy  in recounting his impressions of  the USSR. Someone in the audience thought him unfair to  that country and said so  vehemently.  But his books tell our recent  history through the eyes of  those who've lived it. History  comes alive in them. Do read.  David Suzuki on the other  hand is fluent verbally as well as  in print. And no wonder, for he  was drilled in public speaking as  a child by his father, and, he  slated, still rehearses his  material before speaking to an  audience.  Too, Suzuki touched on  topics that al present cause  many of us to be anxious and  many to be angry.  The greatest enemy we have is  our economic system, a system  that devours our environment.  Suzuki said, "We have 30 years  left to fend off Ihe destruction  of our environment." He did  not dwell on what the individual  citizen need do to salvage the  environment, nor how each one  should curb the voracious appetite for ease and pleasure that  adds to this approaching  catastrophe.  Fish farms: the problem is a  far-reaching ecological one, well  beyond the mere loss of view.  Computers in schools: a complele waste in elementary. What  primary pupils need are the  means to encourage their imaginations, that lead them to investigate and discover.  Genetics: much false past  teaching concerning the inferiority of some races which  has led to harsh and ruthless  discrimination.  Free trade: another assault of  the economy on the environment. "It's like selling one's  home because the dollar offer is  high. But the home is not valued  in dollars bul in its charm and  its memories." Of course free  irade or not, we stride on  towards the environment's  destruction.

Rhythms of Life  To the doorstep of the Stein  by Peter Trower  Getting into the Stein area involves a trip across the Fraser  on one of the most unique free  ferries in B.C. The small vessel  carries only two cars at a time  and operates entirely without  mechanical help. It rides along  two overhead cables that prevent it being swept willy-nilly,  downriver to Hope. The ferry  employs a reaction method for  motive power, channelling the  current of the river through a  rudder system, to push itself  back and forth. Two large oars  or sweeps,at either end, control  the direction and the speed.  The ferry was operated by  two Native fellows, a captain  and a deckhand. The captain  had been performing tht job for  10 years. He explained how the  craft works. When he learned  we were going into the Stein, he  advised us, jokingly, to "watch  out for sasquatches". Frankly, I  was more apprehensive about  grizzlies, which have sometimes  been spotted around the valley  entrance.  The ferry dropped us off on  the west bank of the Fraser and  we headed north along a gravel  road. This side of the river was  once more heavily populated  than it is now. There are several  abandoned farms and derelict  cabins. We passed a small sign  indicating the Stein Valley Trail  but decided to check this later.  First we wanted to investigate  the area around the Stein River  Bridge, where there was supposed to be a petroglyph rock,  somewhat of a rarity, this far in  from the coast. Reaching the  bridge, we parked the car and  surveyed the situation.  Beyond the bridge, the road  turned west and began to climb  towards the hills. A lone  youngish Indian came strolling  down it, and stopped to talk.  He told us he had just walked in  three miles from some remote  homestead. We asked him  about various trails and he  pointed them out.  We consulted our guide book  on the area and decided to  follow a trail that angled up a  bench to the north. It led only  to an Indian graveyard but provided a great view of the Fraser  and the opposite shore above  Lytton. Directly below us on a  flat park-like shelf beside the  river, was a Native ceremonial  grounds, distinguished by an  enormous circle of white stones.  Returning to the car, we  drove back across the bridge  and up a narrow side road that  reportedly led to the petroglyph  rock. The road soon degenerated into loose tractionless  sand. We parked and walked  the remainder of the distance to  the river's edge, spooking a  browsing deer along the way.  The Fraser was in full spate  and the carved rock we sought,  apparently sat at the high water  line, a pyramidal boulder about  five feet high. We worked our  way south along the rocky  shore, seeing nothing that  remotely resembled the stone  artifact we sought. Just when  we were ready to give up, I spot-  led the boulder about 100 yards  ahead. Brown water lapped  around its base but the  petroglyphs were high and dry.

This Community  Television Schedule  Courtesy of: ��� ��� ��� ���  SOUTH COAST FORD  885-3281    No one had ever determined  how old the carvings were, but  they undoubtedly pre-dated the  coming of the white man.  Yvonne unshipped her camera  and took several photographs  of this historical milepost. Not  far from the petroglyph rock  was a deserted Indian fish  camp. It had apparently not  been used for some time.  We worked our way back to  the car via a different route.  Now we would make a brief  foray into the Stein Valley itself.  Driving back along the main  road, we located the sign we had  noticed earlier and turned right  along the rutty track that led to  the trail mouth. The rough access route ran past an abandoned cabin and across an open  wasteland of boulders, wild  flowers and low shrubs, known  as Van Winkle flats. The road  was very high-centred in places  and Yvonne, fearing for her oil  pan, elected not to drive all the  way in. We threw some cans of  fruit juice into the day pack and  started out.  In 10 minutes or so, we arrived at the trail entrance. A glass  fronted signboard, erected by  the Lillooet and Mount Currie  Indian Bands, welcomed us to  the valley, but admonished us to  treat it with respect, as their  ancestors had always done.  The first part of the trail ran  down a steep bank but soon  levelled out and from this point  on, the going was remarkably  easy. We crossed a rough but  well made bridge across a small  tributary creek and entered the  outer limits of the Stein  wilderness. This was primitive  country as the earliest explorers  must have seen it, almost totally  untrammelled by the encroachments of civilization.  Just beyond the bridge, the  trail curved around a large  moss-cloaked outcropping.  High on the frontal face of this  bluff were a series of pic-  tographs in red pigment, faded  from time and weather, but still  quite discernible. Legend has it  that women of the Lillooet tribe  used to come to this spot to give  birth and baptize their babies in  the Stein River.  The trail wound on through  primeval terrain, studded with  ancient ponderosa pines, gnarled and brooding, brilliant with  moss. More rock bluffs reared  to our left. Although there was  no sign of animal life, I had not  forgotten about the grizzlies  that were said to prowl this  area. At one point, 1 looked up  and saw a brown shape bulking  against the trees atop a granite  ridge. On closer examination, it  proved to be just another  boulder.  We followed the trail in for  about two miles. In many  places, the path ran directly  alongside the river. The Stein  was in flood, a white frothing  torrent, a visual symphony of  whirls and eddies, hammering  endlessly from the back of  beyond, crashing down to the  Fraser like a fierce living thing.  Its wild voice was everywhere,  echoing from the cliff faces,  singing a wordless anthem.  All too soon, it was time to  turn back as we wanted to make  it through to Vancouver that  nighl. Somewhat reluctantly,  we retraced our footsteps. We  had tasted a little of the Stein's  magic.  On our way back through  Lytton, we noticed two storefront operations representing  radically opposed views in  regard to the valley. 'Save the  Stein' shouted the conservationists. 'Share the Stein'  thundered the loggers. Despite  the fact that I used to make a  living in the woods, my sympathies lay firmly with the  former group. We have destroyed too many wildernesses.  Something must be preserved.

The place  was packed with an assortment of local folk, from the quite  young to the very old, apparently from all walks of life. But the  deck seemed to be stacked quite heavily toward the athletic set  -the flat-bellied mesomorphic men, the lithe, exhuberant women  who came together for brew and victuals after an evening of  slow-pitch at a local diamond.  For a while I wondered why this should be the case. Certainly,  the Cedars is a comfortable environment to wind down in after  running about in the name of sport. And there's usually a football game or a tennis match on the overhead tube in case conversation flags. But it wasn't until our waitress arrived with our  orders that I knew the reason for certain: few people but athletes  are capable of handling the sheer quantity of food you get at the  Cedars.  I'm not kidding. When our waitress smiled at us politely and  said, "Enjoy your meals," we knew the subtext was, "I dare  you to eat all this food."  My Chef's Salad was the largest I've ever seen. I was tempted  to climb into it and work my way out. It had great cubes of  chicken and big piles of ham and Swiss and cheddar cheese, and  about a wheelbarrowful of green lettuce.  My guest had a Cobb Salad, with avocado, blue cheese,  chicken, egg, tomato and lettuce. Both were absolutely wonderful. We each ate half of them before moving on, fully intending  to return.  Each of the appetizers could have been a full meal. We set to  the tempura mushrooms first. There were probably 40 of them,  deep-fried and tasting very much like little round onion rings.  We ate about half of them before moving on, fully intending to  return.  The Oriental chicken wings, served in a very nice sweet and  sour sauce, struck me as a nice alternative to nachoes to complement a mug of beer. In our case, we had nachos as well. They  were served with the enchilada con carne, which my guest  assures me was authentically Mexican, if toward the mild end of  the spice spectrum. I didn't try it. I couldn't eat another bite. I  shall return.  Average meal prices quoted  do not include liquor.  Creek House - Intimate dining and  European cuisine in a sophisticated yet  casual aimosphere.

Coast News, August 29,1988  SPORTS  Catherine Stuart and "Scottie" in the Trail Class event at Sunshine  Coast Equestrian Club Show last Sunday. ��� j. Edmonds photo  Riding Club news  A very busy season  by Lisa Williams  The summer of '88 will  always be remembered as a busy  one by this writer; as you can  tell, I've had a hard time keeping up with all our activities.  Every year a growing number  of riders trek off to Maple  Ridge for the Mrs. T event.  This year was no exception:  eight local riders participated in  this event of July 8, 9 and 10.  Pre-training (Senior  Division): First Place - Lisa  Torvick on Brother Love,  owner Larry Boyd; Fifth Place  -Jeanine Ellingham on Cruise  Control, owner Wendy  Nicholson.  Training: Third Place - Sara  Puchalski on Jasper, owner  Jenny Maddleton; Fifth Place  -Jodi Custance on Riot Squad,  owner Jodi Custance.  Team Ribbons: First Place  -Pam McRae on Cloche Encounter, Jodi Custance on Riot  Squad; Sara Puchalski on  Jasper.  Congratulations to all the  riders and good luck for the rest  of the season. After a very slow  start due to poor weather we  held our first show on July 17.  We had a good turnout and,  with Doug Reid as judge, 1  think everyone enjoyed  ihemselves.  Riders are reminded to  register for their classes in plenty of time for Ihe entry secretary  to complele her records. For  1988 you musl pre-register by  the Friday before the show. As  of 1989 thai will change lo the  Tuesday before or you will pay  penalties. To find out aboul  changes for 1989, come to a  club meeting and pick up a copy  of the Club By-laws.  We had a reasonable turnout  at our trail ride held on July 31  in Roberts Creek, and I hope we  can generate enough interest to  have another this fall. Anyone  interested in trail riding should  conlact me at 885-7243. We  would like to include trail ridding as one of our regular activities in the club.  Our second show was held on  August 21, with judge Vickie  Fowler from Aldergrove.  English Hi-Point for the day  went to Jeanine Ellingham  riding Cruise Control. Reserve  was awarded to Tara Boragno  riding Pumpernickle Sage.  Western Hi-Point was won by  Gail Edmonds riding Who's  Colonel with reserve going to  Caterine Stuart riding Greatly  Styled. Special Mention - Maya  Grant - freshly back from  England, great to have you  back!!  Our next general meeting will  be held on September 1 at 7:30  pm at the Commmunity Room  in Roberts Creek School. All  members and will-be members  should note that our annual  election nominations will be  held al the October meeting,  and we are in need of volunteers  for executive and committee  positions.  Anyone thinking about helping in this area will be encouraged to speak out; we need help!!  Our final show of the year will  be held September 25.

Cavalcade Tennis  A fine weekend!  by Eric Cardinall  A super fine weekend wound  down in the shadows of last  Sunday evening at the newly-  painted tennis courts of Dougal  Park. With a total of 78 matches played over the two days,  all local courts were fully used  and local players and spectators  treated to some fine play and a  chance to test the Coast talent  against visitors from Vancouver  Island, Powell River and the  Lower Mainland. With the exception of the Bennett Clan and  Robbie Jonas, off-Coast took  most of the major trophies.  Nonetheless, the committee  was more than satisfied with the  overall result and particularly at  the rise in the general level of  play that resulted in a surprising  number of close encounters, tiebreaker sets being the order of  the day.  Results: Ladies Singles -Petra  Turek, Coquitlam over Janis  Brown, Sechelt; Men's Singles  -Bob Burnett, Powell River over  Dan Cardinall; Ladies Doubles  - Sara and Bonnie Bennett over  Paddy Wales and Barb Mason;  Men's Doubles - Robbie Jonas  and Brian Bennett over Joe  Smutney and Peter Turek; Mixed Doubles - Petra and Jerry  Turek over Peggy Stacy and  Eric Cardinall; Ladies 'B'  -Peggy Stacy over Jay McD-  Donald; Men's 'B' - Jerry  Turek over Charlie Ho; Men's  'B' Doubles - Jason Weir and  Eric Cardinall over Sajan  Joseph and Derek Janot; Mixed  'B' - Wendy and Terry Wales  over Maryln Kurp and Paul  Dallas.  The committee would like to  extend its appreciation to the  following local businesses that  kindly contributed to the success of the Annual Sea  Cavalcade Tennis Tournament.  This local involvement augers  well for the future of the tournament and the recreational  player on the Sunshine Coast.

S.C. Golf ���� Country Club  Hinks wins again  by Frank Nanson  The winner of the Men's Sunshine Coast Golf Club Championship was again Ken Hinks.  Ken has won this title many  times in a row now, well done  Ken! The runner-up was Mike  Mannion. The club championship goes to the player with the  low gross score of course.  Continuing with low gross  scores, the winner of the first  flight was Bill Sneddon(Jr) with  Jim Gilcrest taking second flight  and Ray Phillips, who has been  doing a lot of winning lately  laking third flight.  The low net winner was Bar-  rie Reeves with Dan Belle the  runner-up. These two had a two  hole play-off to break a tie.  The low net first flight winner  was Dan Belle, with Graham  Chapman winning the second  flight and Jack Knaus the third  flight.  On Senior Men's Day the  closest to the hole winner was  charter member Geoff Trant. If  you are not as old as I am you  may remember that last week  closest to the hole was our  84-year-old member Bert Slade.  This week it is 81-year-old  Geoff Trant.  The winning Senior's team consisted of Bill Sneddon, Ed  Mathews, Bert Slade, George  Pare and Larry Farr.  The Mixed Twilight was  played on a beautiful night last  week with the foursome of Bill  Skelcher, Connie Hobbs, Donna Johnson and Bob Mahar  taking first place. In second  spot were Ron Huggins, Isabel  Cowley, Howard Webster and  Lorna Huggins.  A reminder that the old  'hose' watering well on the  ninth fairway has been replaced  with a spring loaded tap located  about 20 feet up from the 'hose'  on the outside wall of the same  building, the pump-house.  Please use it as we are not .certain of the water quality coming  from the old 'hose' any longer.  Sealions  are third  Last weekend the Sunshine  Coast Sealions finished third  out of five teams at the Delta-  Tsawwassen Football Tournament. The team lost their opening game to the Renfrew Trojans 7-6 with a Sealions  touchdown scored by Mike  Yates. The Sealions lost their second and last game of the day  7-0 to Langley, the team they  will face on September 6 at B.C.  Place, prior to the B.C. Lions-  Ottawa Roughrider game.  The Sealions got organized  and serious and beat Cloverdale  Bobcats 20-0, with Ryan Dempster scoring two touchdowns  and Trent Turner scoring the  other. In the last game the  Sealions won 7-0 with Ryan  Dempster the quarterback scoring a touchdown and convert.  The Sealions' first home  game is scheduled for Sunday,  September 4 at 11:00 am when  they will face North Delta Jets  at Hackett Park.  Sunshine Coast  PEST CONTROL LTD   Greaves Rd.

Band-aid measures are not the answer  Editor:  Your article 'Coast Garbage  Causing Concern' Coast News,  August 22, failed to give any  credit to our company, Chinook  Navigation Co. Ltd. which has  shown and developed most of  the initiatives, involved in not  only dealing with 'mort' fish  but in actively pursuing similar  objectives in handling dry industrial and domestic garbage  as well as sewage from the fish  farms.  Each farm can generate a  large volume of waste, and  farmers are only too aware of  the problems that arise out of  handling this material and  eliminating the chance'of pollution. Chinook, as the company  thai provides the transportation  for bringing this material in, has  had many expensive and aggravating problems to contend  with, not the least of them being  Ihe wholly inadequate unloading arrangements at Porpoise  Bay and the restrictions which  exist at the dump. We are now  hoping that, with local government being fully informed,  some of these problems can be  addressed in a. practical way.  It was to aquaint local  government and others that the  ' meeting referred to by Gordon  Wilson was called. At this  meeting we described some of  the frustrations encountered  and the economic and logistical  problems which have lo be  overcome. We also outlined  . some of the measures by which  aquaculture and ourselves could  handle future needs for waste  removal which hopefully will  not only keep the environment  clean but also answer some of  the misgivings of critics of the  industry.  As to the very large tonnages  of morts mentioned by Mr.  Wilson, which can be expected  in another two years or so, it is  hoped that, long before that  point is reached, waste fish will  be treated and marketed as fish  fertilizer. The product has value  but here again it takes capital,  effort and a recognition of  economic and logistical problems.  Band-aid measures and small  scale operations are not the  answer to cost effective and efficient servicing of waste requirements. Just as aquaculture  is big and growing, bigger are  the requirements of waste  management in the industry.  Chinook is dedicated to serving  these needs but cannot do it  unaided, hence the need for  enlightened involvement on the  part of local government.  Syd Heal  Director  Driftwood Players thank you  Editor:  The Summer Play Parade has  passed once more and Driftwod  Players would like to take this  opportunity lo say thank you to  the community for its support.  Our list of volunteers and  supporters is loo long for inclusion here, bul Driftwood  sincerely appreciates those who  came out as audiences for our  two full-length plays, Crimes of  the Heart and Betrayal; those  whose help backstage and as  technical crew made performances possible, Ihe army of  volunteers who manned the  door and concession, the kind  folk who lent us props and furniture, the actors, whose  dedication and hard work  brought the words to life, the  School Board, the School  Dislricl Mainlenance Department, Continuing Education  and the Town of Gibsons, the  advertisers whose support gave  us invaluable publicity, and the  families of those involved who  pul up wiih impossible hours  and a lol of inconvenience.  Each summer we try to bring  good theatre to the Sunshine  Coast; each year we rediscover  Ihe difficulties involved both  with location, and with the need  for a large and willing crew to  mount ihe set, and do the  dozens of tasks necessary before  ihe actors can set foot on stage.  Driftwood is grateful to those  who do help; but we'd be  delighted to have you call us if  you'd like lo give your name,  number and area of interest for  the next production.

Rhythms of Life  Slay the dragons  by Penny Fuller  Sean Henn logs a lot of time on the water (luring the summer months. The 12-year-old Gibsons resident tested the currents near  Franklin Beach Tuesday. -Bruce Grierson photo  e * * * t ********* *  She's such a little flirty  Now that she's turned 30  CAROL PARRELL's  her name  September 3rd's her day.  ***************  The worst battles that we ever  fight, the greatest acts of  courage we perform, are those  that few people ever know  about. When a person turns and  faces the dragons in their soul,  the fears that they've buried and  denied for years, no one applauds or cheers them on. But  when they slay those dragons,  the victory releases a part of  that person that's been withering in the dark, and the experience is quite dizzying and  exciting.  The qualities encompassed by  the astrological sign of Aries include that courage, the kind  ascribed to 'the spiritual warrior', and the planet that rules  Aries, Mars, describes the activation of those energies  (among other less admirable  traits). When Mars entered the  sign of Aries in mid-July there  was an increase in external,  more obvious-type assertive  behaviour. We are now entering  a time of internal assertiveness.  Because astrology interprets  the movement of the planets  from the perspective of the  earth, it sometimes appeals that  planets are standing still (called  making a station), or even moving backwards (called going  retrograde). When a planet is  stationary it indicates an emphasis on the aspects of life that  are described by that planet, i.e:  when Mars made a station last  Friday, areas of conflict in your  life may have hit a kind of peak.  Mars is now going retrograde,  and that indicates an internalization of those energies.  You have a choice in how you  use this time. You may choose  to bury your anger, your assertiveness and your energy inside,  in which case the most positive  result will probably be an ulcer.  Or you can tap into the courage  in your own soul and choose to  slay a few dragons.  So much human potential  and energy is dissipated and  twisted in trying to ignore and  avoid our fears. It could be the  fear of being exactly like the  parent that you never got along  with. It could be the fear of be  ing alone for the rest of your  life, or being unloved, or aging  (a common fear that is fed by  our culture). It could be the fear  that you really are an alcoholic,  or a lousy parent, or weak.  Whatever your deepest fears  are, as long as you hide from  them they drain you and prevent you from reaching your  full potential as a human being.  Throughout September and  October, as Mars appears to  move backwards, the indication  is that you will be able to find  the courage to face some of  these fears, and conquer them.  The most difficult part is  acknowledging them. That's the  first step.  Once you face the dragon  you will have to decide how you  want to slay it.  It may be simply accepting it:  okay, I'm a lot like my father;  all right, my daughter really  does hate me; yup, if I leave this  relationship I may be alone for  the rest of my life. Whatever it  is, if you can find that place in  yourself that says, "I can live  with it. I can live with the worst  case scenario of my fear," then  you've won.  The amazing thing is that as  soon as you handle the issue on  an internal level, you'll find that  it simply seems to evaporate in  the external world. And you  have liberated a partof yourself  that can fly to new heights.  ^_^m     Member of  *2jI allied  The Careful Movers  LOCAL  Call the Moving  Specialists  For all local moving, or for help with  moving awkward heavy Items, pianos, etc.  LEU WMY'S TRANSFER LTR.

Coast News, August 29,1988  In a  nutshell  Is then  by S. Nutter  s there anybody out there?  Is there anybody out there?  That is really out there, out  among the galaxies? We don't  know how long mankind has  been pondering this question.  Possibly some vague notions  may have flitted across the  Neanderthal mind, but in our  time, the real attempts to pick  up some kind of signal from out  there, using radio telescopes of  increasing sophistication, have  been going on since 1960.  The result as far is zilch, not  the slightest hint, and the Search  for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence  (SET1) researchers are already  having it tough finding money  to continue the projects. Admittedly these involve ever-vaster  antennae systems and ever more  massive comptttor hookups, but  no results, no grants, and the  public interest has slipped out of  sight.  Maybe this is what happened  on other planets, and after all  we have only ourselves as  models. Gregg Eastabrook, in  this issue of Atlanta Monthly  has another idea. Consider, he  says, two numbers. 3.8 billion  and 57. 3.8 billion, the years  that passed between primeval  organisms on earth and the arrival of intelligent life, as homo  sapiens. Fifty-seven years is the  time between the inventions of  tadio and the hydrogen bomb.  Maybe this was all the time they  had to send a signal ('hello')  before Ihey blew themselves up.  Kind of a grisly thought, but  again we have only ourselves as  models. On the other hand, we  have not in fact blown ourselves  up, and in the public consciousness, probably, this seems  less and less likely. Meanwhile  we should surely keep trying to  get through out there, even  though all we've learned seems  to increase the size of the problem and decrease Ihe chance of  results.  What we have learned, which  we kind of knew before, is the  immensity (our word) and complexity of it all. We'll not go inlo the hydroxyl radical, doppler  shifts etc. since we hardly have  room and I know little indeed  about them, but just about  everything out there is giving off  radio waves, and there seems no  end to what is out there.  The trick, it seems, is to select  the most likely frequency  bands, hydrogen, the most  common, or, thinking that they  may be thinking that we may be  thinking that a signal of this import should pass on a specialized frequency, bands among the  rarer in the spectrum.  Also we have to aim our  signals somewhere, and we  can't identify any planets, and  have to simply presume that  these billions of suns that we  can see must have them.  What can be of interest of  course, and what can be discussed with no knowledge of the  technologies, is whether in fact  we want to find people out there  at all. It's all right to pleasure  ourselves with 'Star Treks' etc.,  and a whole literature of tales of  worlds without worlds without  worlds, but do we really want  proof that some other bunch is  out there, coping as we are coping, or not coping as the case  may be?  For starters it's going to upset  a lol of people's attitude to life  altogether. We all take a stance  to the unknown, our religion.  The big organized ones, even  the little ones or the personal  ones, would be crisped with this  new dimension, and many a  cherished dogma would fall.  And what are we going to  say, suppose we get a signal?  Are we going to say 'come on  over'? That would take 5,000  years maybe, and then maybe  they'd come, as we might, with  superior weapons, etc.  In many minds 1 would think  there is a feeling (or hope?) that  somehow in this whole scientific  edifice of theorems, some basic  fact has been missed, or  misunderstood. We know,  don't we, that most of our  scientific dicta is based on  hypotheses, theories, ideas that  explain what is happening  without knowing the cause.

A few weeks ago the leading  mathematician of France, Alexandre Grothendick, was award-  ed the top 'Crafoord Prize'. He  turned it down. He said he no  longer liked the world scientific  community. He said, "I have  no doubt that before the end of  the century totally unforeseen  upheavals are going to radically  transform our very notions of  'science', its prime objectives,  and the spirit in which scientific  work is done."

Parking not
for sale
Gibsons Council is reluctant to sell parking spaces from the
municipal lot on School Road hill to private establishments.
The issue was discussed at Council's Committee of the
Whole meeting Tuesday, following some enquiries by Cornerstone Teahouse owner Kathy Love, whose restaurant is
adjacent to the parking lot.
Love, who says she might be considering expanding her
business in future, asked municipal clerk Lorraine Goddard if
Gibsons would consider selling her parking spaces for
Teahouse patrons. But Council said Tuesday they felt the lots
should be maintained for the use by all patrons of area
businesses.
Diving adventure
Continued from page 2
of our class had come upon a
big crab, and had wrenched it
from its lodgings and brandished it before the group. It was a
big moment for him. He looked
at us one by one to make sure
we were sufficiently impressed,
diverted by his own bravado as
the crab's pincer closed around
his thumb. I'll never forget that
expression: Anguish and a
newborn respect for the sea, as
his eyes went wide as spoons
and a great cloud of bubbles
rose from his regulator. The
thumb healed in about four
weeks, I heard.
We swim on, following the
ocean floor as it falls away, past
rockfish and perch and black-
spotted gobis sitting sphinx-like
on the sand. A scallop scissors
past like an errant set of dentures.
At this depth, the short
wavelengths of the spectrum
-the reds and yellows - fade out.
A light is indispensible.
I switch mine on. Its beam
becomes a fantastic electronic
paintbrush. Starfish the colour
of oatmeal turn blood-red
under the light of the lamp.
Leather stars and pencil-legged
Pisasters and great painted
grccnlings spring into colour.
Doug and I drift over a sun starfish the size of a bicycle tire.
These things eat whatever they
can get, I'm told, including
other starfish.
The depth guagc reads 60
feet. Ahead looms the cusp of
the Edgemont seawall. This is
the stuff of great diving. These
reefs absolutely bristle with life.
Urchins and sponges flank dark
crannies that house the big-
ticket items: giant Pacific oc-,
topuses and wolf-eels with long,
tapered bodies and faces like
Ernest Borgnine. You won't see
them peripherally. When you
meet one, it's face to face.
I check my air. We've been
down 25 minutes, well under the
'no-decompression' limits.
Doug has enough air for
another 25. But a quick-beating
heart pulls oxygen at an alarming rate. My needle is in the red.
It seems unjust. Like being
called away from the table just
as dinner is served. I look
toward Doug and, a little
sheepishly, give the 'out of air'

Sale Ends Sept. 3/88 or While Stock Lasts 22.  Coast News, August 29,1988  Caution is urged  Davis Bay development  The developmeni of the  Davis Bay waterfront was the  subject of a report compiled by  the Parks Department and the  Mapping and Records Department of the Sunshine Coasl  Regional District (SCRD) which  was received at last week's  meeting of the board. In the  preamble to the recommendations, Steve Alexander and Al  Silver warned thai 'too much  credibility has been given to  local, well meaning, self proclaimed experts'. They urged  the use of 'a competent coastal  Development Engineer who is  sensitive to the public's interests" in any further development plans.  Two major recommendations  were made in the reports. Silver  and Alexander suggested that  the issue be laken oul of the  political arena to avoid the constant backtracking and changes  that have historically laken  place in planning for the area.  The alternative they offer is the  establishment of a "Davis Bay  Foreshore Protection and  Development Commission"  which would include government representatives, provincial  ministry representatives, and  local residents.  Additionally, the report  recommends a feasibility study  and report on solutions for the  protection and enhancement of  the foreshore.  The reporl is io be considered  at a joint meeting of the SCRD  and the District Municipality of  Sechelt. Both councils have  agreed to the meeling, but there  has been some delay as each has  waited for the other to make a  formal request that the1 meeting  lake place.  In the meantime, Sechelt has  drafted a proposed washroom  facility for the east end of Davis  Bay which was submitted at the  same meeting as the waterfront  development report. Sechelt  Alderman Bob Wilson explained that Ihe facility would be  located on a piece of property  that has recently been donated  to the municipal dislrict. But  director Jim Gurney questioned  several  elements of the pro  posal, especially the piecemeal  construction of such things  before an overall development  plan is in place.  The five seater outhouse will  cost an estimated $30,000 to  build, and Gurney asked  whether it was permissable  under Waste Management  Legislation to have a septic field  that close to the ocean and a  creek. Wilson responded that he  assumed the question had been  looked into, and asked that the  proposal be referred to the  Parks Committee for their  recommendations.  He also agreed lo ask Sechelt  Council to request a meeting  wiih SCRD representatives to  discuss the development plan  for the Davis Bay foreshore.
