 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  91.8  -1-.-* .  ' Coast News, December 24,1990  comment.  I  A New Year  While it is Spring which represents our natural phase of  renewal, the period in the cycle of this fragile blue planet's  biological ebb and flow when growth is most evident and  exuberant, the changing of the calendar from one year to  the next serves a similar, deeply psychological purpose.  Ringing in the New Year, coming as it does in the midsl  of Winter with its inclination towards morbidity, death,  and hibernation, requires a peculiar leap of faith from us  all.  It requires a certain optimism, one which ultimately cannot be faked and sustained, regardless of how loudly one  blows on the noisemaker or proposes toasts to an internalized cultural image of a withered old bearded gent with  an hourglass and a scythe, and a bucolic baby with diaper  askew and beauty pageant sash cross its chest bearing the  numerals of the new year being so desperately ushered in.  Many of us will make numerous "New Year's resolutions" and, despite the fact lhat mosl will be broken  before 1991 has much of a chance to catch its breath, look  around, and decide what sort of novelty lo begin gifting us  wilh, there is an admirable kind of faith and optimism al  work within us all.  II is an optimism which allows us to hope���even to  believe���that this "new" year (for there is no delineation  save for the psychological in Time) can somehow be better  than the old.  Better. More prosperous. More loving. Cleaner and  somehow even purified, less violent and more responsive  to Ihe kinds of positive transformations which we  know���in some fashion���musl first be wrought within  ourselves.  So for a brief momenl during ihe winter of our varying  discontents, we collectively whistle past the graveyard  where the remains of our lasl New Year are interred, and  prepare to lake on the unknown 365 days ahead of us with  as much pluck and good cheer as we can muster.  A very Happy New Year from the entire Coasl News  family. We'll be here with you every step of the way.  A disturbing voice  A new and disturbingly convincing voice hits been heard  on the subject of the crisis in the Middle East.  Former UK Prime Minister Edward Heath was interviewed by the Vancouver Sun apparently on his way to  testify before the Congress of the United States.  Heath has long experience in Middle East diplomacy  and he states flatly that a military attack against Iraq when  the deadline runs oul on January IS will result in a  nightmare. He conjures up a scenario of burning oil wells,  a United Nations force condemned to occupy a hostile  land, an Arab coming together against the West. The combined costs of the adventure and interruption in oil supplies could well bring down the economies of the West,  says Heath.  It is certain that no war is ever predictable in its outcome. Heath's is a voice we should be listening to carefully  ���before the madness starts.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  S YEARS AGO  Scantech moved six more pens into its Wood Bay  Salmon Farm, bringing the total on Its Underturn Rig up  to 10. In the face of growing public objections to the  Wood Bay site, Scantech announced that they would be  looking for an alternate site for their operation.  10 YEARS AQO  Cedar Grove Elementary student Sara Bennett won  third prize in the Provincial Christmas Card Contest.  Her prize was a $100 scholarship and another $100 lor  the school.  20 YEARS AGO  The Regional Board is considering a public relations  move to make Itself better understood. Secretary  Charles Gooding said it has become obvious to him that  in recent weeks, after four years of operation and excellent coverage by the press, many people are still not  aware of what the Regional District Is, what the board  can do, what it cannot do and what it has done.  30 YEARS AGO  Gibsons municipal clerk Jules Mainll in his annual  report forecast construction of a 60,000 gallon domestic  water tank adjacent to the tank on School Road (which  has since been removed).  Sunshine Coast building permit values for 19S9 were  estimated to be beyond the S2 million mark.  40 YEARS AGO  Coast News Editor Bill Sutherland, in the course of an  editorial on the meaning of Christmas, relented that one  of his readers had written a scathing letter to the editor  this week, phoned him at home and told him to "tear it  up, don't print It. This is Christmas and we should be  magnanimous to our enemies."  The Sunshine  eOaffVIWf  Put>ii.h,d by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES   CemeStt T Y����r tW 6 Months tX Forelon 1 Vmj 140  Christmas and the homeless  I am well aware of the fact  that at this time of year  newspaper columns are almost  exclusively devoted to uplifting  themes.  And I was fully prepamTto  bow to convention and supply a  "From The Hip" which wouK  fairly reek of good feelings and  goodwill towards all and sundry, until a news report in the  Sun reminded me for the umpteenth million time that reality  will not be denied.  Apparently, for such things  cannot ever be certain, the  homeless have fallen out of  favour���or perhaps we should  say out of vogue. Now although  this assertion is being made  specifically in reference to some  three million-odd American  homeless, I cannot but feel  quite safe in assuming that the  situation here in Canada is  largely analogous. (There are  20,000 such souls in Toronto  alone.)  And how the downtrodden  have fallen in such a short  period of time! Why, less than  three years ago, fancy soirees  and catered Beverly Hills parties  were being thrown by  conscience-stricken and noble-  minded citizens (in Beverly Hill-  sian enclaves across the land of  the Home and Da Brie) to raise  money for those miserable wretches who form what one might  accurately refer to as the North  American Underclass.  It wasn't all that long ago,  either, when movie audiences  from Fort St. John to West  Palm Beach���and points in between���were rolling in the aisles  with delight and "empathy" as  a fashionably grime-encrusted  Nick Nolte scratched and slobbered his way through Down  And Out In Beverly Hills. Hey,  that bum's funny, Honey!  Well, bein' down and out  anywhere ain't funny. Never  was and never will be. Which is  probably a good part of the  reason why the "Homeless  Backlash" is now upon us.  Once the 'fad' I call Destitute  Chic started to pale and  everyone involved looked  around only to discover that the  poor, the homeless, the  culturally punchdrunk and mal-  adapted not only still were  they���hands out-stretched���but  were growing in number, the  chit suddenly hit the fan.  A couple of years ago local  politicians and well-meaning  folk like us were establishing  and funding food banks, financing homeless shelters, expanding soup kitchens, and even  spending a few hours "on the  streets" with our poor, unfortunate (and unfortunately  romanticized) brothers and  sisters.  Now indications suggest that  a significant majority are  against the spending of tax  dollars to build proper homes  for the homeless. This same majority actively resent having to  even encounter these paragons-  turned-pariahs, having to even  set eyes upon this culturally  derived human flotsam and jetsam.  It is surely painfully ironic  that this latest "take" on our attitudes towards those far less  fortunate than most of us,  should appear at the one time of  year most completely identified  and associated with feelings of  communal love and understanding, with generosity of heart  and spirit and the sharing of our  collective bounty.  So, if during this season of  manufactured joy and self-  induced euphoria you find it  difficult to concentrate on such  bleak social abominations as the  poor and the homeless, fear  not.  There's plenty of homeless  and otherwise hung-out-to-dry  individuals and families to go  around���and they ain't goin'  nowhere. They'll be here come  January 2. In fact, every day  there's even more of them  created by our expedient, profit  and success-driven societies  which expel those unable to  keep pace or keep up like so  many carbonized particles from  the tailpipe of a car.  But with the advent of  winter, it is more difficult to  turn our heads, to avoid some  minimal contact with the Sunned Ones, as they shuffle stiffly  along the sidewalks or huddle  frostbitten and forgotten in the  doorways of buildings we  wouldn't dare enter without an  armed guard.  And with the winds atilftjje  snow and the hypothermic  plungings of the temperatures  will most assuredly come the  body count as the weakest  among us falter, fall back, fall  off, and drop dead. Montreal,  Halifax, Toronto, Quebec City,  Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary  and Vancouver are all obvious  potential datelines for the  destitute dead.  Personally, I don't resent the  down-and-out, but I do resent  having to write about them.  Mostly I hate all of us for making them possible in the first  place.  In a nutshell  Wenceslas in Newfoundland  by S. Nutter  If it has been your lot to  move around more than the  average bear, then very likely  you will have had some strange,  unorganized, disjointed, almost  upsetting, and possibly even  dismal Christmases.  Everything doees not in ftict  slop for Christmas. There are a  lot of people out there working  through the ho ho season. In  faci if you cast an eye, easy  enough to do with today's  satellites, around the world,  there is certainly a majority of  people paying little or no attention to our annual pageant of  Ihe coming of the prince of  peace.  Nonetheless the magic of  Christmas has somehow maintained with us despite the  onslaughts of advertising et al.  It is The Season, wherever you  may be, and all those little ten-  drils leading back to  Christmases in the past, and  'Christmas' itself, are there  every Decern tier 25.  Some Christmases though are  certainly starker than others. I  remember one in Newfoundland in '43. I was in the  air force at Torbay, just out of  St. John's. All my close friends  had recently been posted out of  the squadron and I was feeling  something really close to  miserable.  I went down on Christmas  Eve to a club in St. John's, the  Crow's Nest. It was at the lop  of a building and you had to  climb up a series of wooden  steps somehow attached to the  outside of the place. It was a  club for sea-going types only,  which meant that at least you  weren't going to meet any personnel guys in there.  I sat next to a navy man who  had a walking stick hanging  from the back of his chair. It  turned out that he was the Captain of a submarine then in the  harbour, on its way, as we had  gathered, to Bermuda. The  reason for the stick was that he  had fallen down his own conning tower, spraining his ankle.  It turned out that he was in  much the same space vis-a-vis  ���Christmas that year as 1 was.  Lots of people around but away  from family and friends. He  had arranged a place for his  crew to have Christmas-a farmhouse 'out netar the airport*. I  invited him to a party we were  having in the mess.  On the way we stopped by his  boat and he picked up a haversack which clinked; also Ids  pockets bulged.  We went out 14.2 miles to  Torbay, and I introduced him  to our cab driven-, a lad from the  orphanage who later became the  Toronto Star's Circulation  Manager in southern Ontario.  We sang him a carol and I  found that the Captain had a  voice.  It went on pretty well like  this: The party on Christmas  Eve was mostly singing and we  sang. We sang and sang and  eventually we were the only people left. We banked up the fire  and a bottle of wardroom rum  came out of the Captain's  haversack. We settled down to  discuss the world and all that.  We found that we both had a  socialistic kind of a lean.  We got to thinking of the  fellows who were perforce  working through that night, put  on our coats and went out to see  them.  We found the cook and a  helper, poured them tots and,  sang them Good King Wenceslas. We found a fellow stoking the furnace in the central  heating place. He got, I think,  While Shepherds Watched, with  his tot. We went on to the guardhouse.  There were three prisoners  and   a   doubtful   guard.  Somehow the guard let us in  and we woke the prisoners and  poureed them a tot through the  bars and they got We Three  Kings, and one of them, I  remember today, had a voice  and knew the words.  Back by our fire we had, I  suppose, a feeling of having  done something worthwhile. I,  at least, stretched out and shortly fell asleep. When I awoke  there was the pale grey of the  Torbay morning. My Wellington  boot was off my right foot, and  the sock. The sock was attached  to the mantelpiece, and in it was  the heel of the bottle of rum.  It wns, of course, a nice bit, a  stylish bit, but I had, I guess, a  twinge of shame. I got my coat  and went outside. There was a  perfect Christmas snowfall,  large flakes drifting slowly  down. The Captain's footprints  however, were there, identified  with the mark of his stick. I  followed.  He went straight along as if  on a compass course, got to our  fence and obviously climbed  over it. I climbed over it and  followed along. The farmhouse  with the entirely convivial crew  in it was within a mile, and of  course it turned out to be one of  the warmest Christmases in  memory.

Editor:  I request the Uese of your  paper to present an open letter  to all Social Credit Party officials. Social Credit MLA's,  Social Credit members, amd  especially my friend Jess Ket-  chum, now employed by the  Social Credit head office.  During the course of my  Cariboo by-election attempt,  many Socreds and NDP supporters were complimentary  about my campaign. Many told  me they would have voted for  me but the reason they could  not or would not was because of  their distrust, dislike or contempt for Premier Bill Vander-  Zalm. Many said that as much  as they did not want to, they  would vote NDP for the first  time, rather than vote for me,  and thereby allow the Vander-  Zalm candidate to win.  Heartfelt  Thanks  Editor:  First of all a big thank you to  all of you people on the Sunshine Coast who have been so  supportive of us in so many  ways in the last year. To the  volunteers who have been really  great, we just couldn't get along  without all your help.  I would also like to congratulate the two winners of our  last draw ��� Mrs. Doosenberg  and L. Hood. Our annual  meeting was held at the end of  November and news we received there, well it was like putting  on the Christmas tree lights and  all the bulbs are on!

Should you require information please do feel free to call or  write with a self-addressed  envelope.  Kay Belanger  /  The scene and issues have not  changed since lhat time when  one of the solid Socred bastions  (Cariboo) fell to the NDP for  the first time in history. Even in  1972 when only 10 Socreds were  elected to the legislature, the  Cariboo had remained faithful  to the Socred parly- Today,  under Bill VanderZalm's Socred  leadership we are to see a defeat  comparable to the defeat of  Richard Hatfield in New  Brunswick.  My question is what will you  and VanderZalm be doing a  yesar from now if this last opportunity to gel rid of this man  is lost due to your lack of support? It is lime to unite under an  acceptable leader after getting  rid of our biggest liability.

Ms Peggy Connor  Chairman, SCRD  Sechelt, BC  Dear Ms Connor:  Thank you for your letter of  November 6, 1990, regarding  the availability of natural gas on  the Sunshine Coast. 1 share  your desire to see natural gas  made widely available on the  Sunshine Coast.  First of all, I would like to  confirm that the distribution  rights awarded to ICG Utilities  (British Columbia) Ltd. (ICG)  by the province require that  ICG serve the communities of  Sechell and Gibsons.  In addition, ICG has the right  to build a distribution system  between Sechelt and Gibsons.  ICG's decision to do so must be  Agreement  Editor:  The comment made by John  Burnside in his 'Musings' of the  December 17 issue of the Coast  News was "right on the mark,"  to use an old phrase.  1 totally agree, and feel that  British Columbia is going the  same route while Bill Vander  Zalm is fiddling away our  future, and our children's  future.  Whal this country and our  province needs so badly now is  many honest citizens who are  nol afraid of the big business  power structure thai is controlling our economies and destroying our environment.  Lee Stephens  approved by the British Columbia Utilities Commission, but  will be based on the anticipated  costs and revenues of the system  expansion.  Providing gas service to the  thousands of customers on  Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast is a major undertaking that will require a  number of years to complete.  Prudent management of tax  dollars requires that major com  munities be serviced first.  Natural gas service will be provided to smaller communities as  soon as is practical and provided the costs do not exceed the  targets agreed to by ICG.  I sincerely hope that gas service can be extended to unincorporated areas of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District in the  future.  William N.

When Mrs. Williams compared Marc Lepine with abortionists, she clearly indicated the  similarity was in the fact that  both killed people. Furthermore, both kill women (anyone  who believes equal numbers of  men and women are aborted is  putting his or her head firmly  into the sand).  I, too, find it ironic that any  woman could support or participate in an abortion in the  name of women's rights, particularly when the person  aborted is a woman, albeit a  smaller version.

Mountain was apprised of  statements made ai the lasl  LRUP meeling on the Sunshine  Coasl by Forestry's Barry  Miller. Miller explained lo those  unending the meeling  (December 12) that the media  was asked nol to attend because  Iheir presence could prove to be  "counter-productive", that  some organizations or individuals tttay use the media  presence as an opportunity to  "grandstand" and "disrupt  progress."  "Excluding the media from  LRUP meeling! is part of (normal) process," replied Mountain.  When asked whether these  meetings were open to (he  public, Mountain said they  were.  The (oast News then suggested that such a policy might  involve an arbitrary suspension  of access to informalion, to  which Mr. Mountain - laughing  - said "Yes, well, I'll look into  il and gel back lo you."  Roger Lagasse, representing  the Sunshine Coast Watershed  Alliance al ihe meeting, recalled  lhat "We - me and others  -were saying we wanled the  media present. The wording of  Miller's motion - to call for a  vole on ihe issue -��� was strange,  rather manipulative. Deliberately confusing, ll was something  like 'All those who are in favour  of nol having the media present  put up your hands' - something  even more confusing. I'm  becoming very skeptical aboul  Ihis LRUP process. I'm afraid  we might be being co-opted."  Dan Bouman of the Tetrahedron Alliance gave a similar  account of the proceedings.  Directly contradicting Mountain's assertion lhat the exclusion of media was normal pro  cess, Bouman said "This modus  operandi is unheard of in  LRUP history!"  "The Tetrahedron Alliance",  Bouman claimed, "opposed  even the idea of taking a vote  because we didn't have the right  lo bar the media from our  meetings in the first place. This  is outrageous! And a vote was  pure nonsense - especially a  vote where instead of 'one  group - one vole' being the procedure, some groups represented at  the meeting voted  more than one member. It was a  farce."  Bouman went on to suggest  thai "The Ministry has to be  better prepared and more  serious if the process is to proceed and accomplish anything."  On Friday, December 21, the  Coast News received a (axed  statement from Barry Mountain, who explained that he  couldn't get through to this  newspaper by telephone.  "Future LRUP meetings will  be opened to Ihe media. Best of  the season. Barry Mountain."

"The public might think  we're all overpaid," said Alderman Bob Wilson, suggesting  that MacLarty continue accepting the money and disposing of  il as she saw fit.  The mayoral stipend is currently $12,800 a year, and  MacLarty would see it dropped  lo $4200, wilh $1300 of lhat being allocatd as her expense  budget.

"I don't know what the flap  is," MacLarty told the Coast  News the next morning.

MacLarty said she would like  the money to be set aside in a  municipal fund.

Though power outings from  downed trees and branches  across lines caused the recently  cutback crews to work overtime. Highway 101 north of  Roberts Creek faired far better  than the Gibsons area in terms  of accidents and delays.

Sergeant Ed  Hill said one of his cars was  trapped by one tree in front and  one behind, near Port Mellon.  According to Capilano  Highways Road Foreman Jim  Thorn, work crews had to shut  the highway down for an hour  to clear the debris.  Sergeant Hill said that between Gibsons and the Peninsula Hotel three officers were  kept busy because there were  numerous car accidents, some  involving injuries. In excess of  12 vehicle accidents had to be  attended to because of road  conditions Tuesday, but Hill  said the service work of the officers in an already bad situation would have been even  worse had some citizens not pitched in as they did.  "Thank you from us to the  civilian people who helped with  A major factor In the prolonged  Roberts Creek wu this huge tree  Road just east of Joe Road.  the traffic situation." Hill noted  gratefully, adding that "One  man near Camp Byng directed  traffic f r two hours in the cold  where a tree was down. We  would have had to have a man  there, so we really appreciate his  service."  Hill said an actual accident  count could not be totalled  because many were not  reported, but to his knowledge  there were no critical injuries.  S<echelt Corporal Tom Ar-  met, on the other hand, says  "We didn't fare too badly. In  terms of accidents and crime  there was nothing weather  related."  The cold did set off some  false alarms, Armet said, "It  was windy and cold, but the  power outage in some parts of  which took out lines on Lower  ���Frail BunuMt pholo  weather didn't wreak havoc on  the roads up the Coast." he added.  Expecting a storm, Capilano  Highways was out salting roads  Monday, but Thorn says the  Coast escaped the brunt of what  hit Vancouver Island.  Still, extra manpower had to  be brought in to clear roads and  sanding needed between Port  Mellon and Trout Lake.  Thorn says many of the  downed trees could not be moved because they were down  across powerlines and they had  to wait for BC Hydro to 'safety-  proof the situation first. Thorn  didn't get to the Lower Road  blockage until the day after it  went down, but Hydro daggers  were on the scene already.  Herbicide appeal  SCEPP loses round in herbicide battle  by Jan Michael Sherman  An appeal launched by the  Sunshine Coast Environmental  Protection Project (SCEPP) to  halt the use of the herbicide Vision in the Clowholm Lake area  'by Weldwood of Canada was  dismissed by the Environmental  Appeal Board to BC.  The appeal hearing held October 16 at S<echelt had been initiated by SCEPP on the  grounds that the use of Vision  would "...adversely affect the  fish and wildlife of the area."  The organization pointed out at  the time that ecologically sound  pest management strategies are  available and should have been  used instead.  As part of their appeal,  SCEPP argued that the area  slated to be sprayed contains  salmon spawning streams,  Clowholm Lake, and Salmon  Inlet which are "...particularly  ecologically sensitive" in terms  of critical wild salmon stocks, as  well as having several salmon  "farms" and a salmon hatchery.   .  As part of Weldwood's  rebuttal, forester R.W. Beaumont alleged that the only effective method to control salmonberry and maple, thimbleberry,  alder and willow for the five  years necessary for the coniferous species to reach free  growing conditions was the application of Vision through  backpack and power nozzle  spraying.  "We're disappointed with the  Board's decision", said SCEPP  spokesman Carole Rubin.  "(But) we at least had the opportunity to better educate  everyone who attended the appeal hearing���and that includes  the Appeal Board members and  Weldwood representatives���  about the testing and registration of herbicides in this country  and about Ihe alternatives to  herbicides in forestry."  During the appeal,  Weldwood's Beaumont said  that he anticipated a brush problem in the proposed spraying  areas because of their southern  exposure and low elevations.  "Knowing this", countered  SCEPP's Steve Cohl, "Weldwood should have had a  strategy for the anticipated  brush problem. At the very  least, they should have  replanted larger seedlings immediately after logging to give  the young trees a head start on  the brush."  "But they didn't", Cohl con-  tinued. "I think the Appeal  Board's decision sends the  message that the company does  not have to carry out a specific  management plan to deal with  the brush and that they can just  carry on as usual with the herbicides to bail them out."  In making its decision, the  Board stated that "The question before the panel is not  whether manual methods of  brush control are preferred over  the use of a pesticide. Rather  the question is whether or not  the use of Vision according to  the restrictions on the Pesticide  Use Permit (194-058-90/92) will  result in an unreasonable  adverse environmental impact."  The Board then proceeded to  answer its own question in the  negative, declaring that "It is  the unanimous decision of the  panel of the Environmental Appeal Board...that the use of Vision on the sites specified will  not cause unreasonable adverse  effect provided that the condi  tions of the Permit are fully  met."  In its concluding recommendations, the Board addressed  one of the public's (and  SCEPP's) persistent concerns���the problem of spills.  "The Panel is concerned that  Weldwood of Canada Limited  does not appear to have a  specific contingency plan to put  into place should a spill occur.  This is not to say that the procedure currently in place to deal  with spills of chemical  substances may not be sufficient; rather the Panel would  hope that Weldwood will address the concerns of the public  in this area by presenting a plan  directed towards dealing with a  pesticide spill."

The department took possession of two new vehicles and is  expanding its dispatch office, as  well as leasing newer equipment. Construclion of a second  firehall next to Cedar Grove  Elementary at Pratt and  Chaster Roads is hoped to be  under way early next year.  The new fire truck being  brought in to service four lo six  weeks from now, will have cost  ���Joel Johnstone photo  nearly $350,000 but, with its  elevated waler stream device  and 50 foot extension, Unit 17 is  just what the department needed.  "This unit was designed by  the Volunteer Fire Department  specifically for ihis area and a  lol of other fire departments  really like the design" said  firefighter Sieve Sleep. "The  guys basically said this is what  we want on the truck, and  Anderson Fire Equipmenl engineers buill it."  The modular design has a  closed "mother-in-law" for extra riders so they don't freeze, a  short wheel base for tight turns,  and packs a 300 horse power  MACK engine on a MACK  frame. It took a year and a half  of planning and eight months  construction to bring it to the  delivery stage.  A second truck to be used its  an emergency rescue and  response unit cost considerably  less. Gray's Beverage sold the  department a used Pepsi bottle  carrier for SI which is being fixed up for regular duty. The  truck will carry the Jaws of Life  and other emergency equipment  and is considered a valuable addition to the six-vehicle fleet.  Both the old Unit 6 extension  ladder truck and the new Unit  17 water stream carrier were  designed by the department  specifically for their purposes.  Firefighter John Huigsloot is  getting ready to knock out a  wall or two to build a new office  in which new radio dispatch  equipment (leased from  Motorola) will be housed.  Originally quoted $1400 in  labour for most of the reconfiguration, he says "Now the  worker is going to donate his  time instead of charging us for  the previous estimated  amount."  Because the firefighters are  unpaid, additional equipment  like this can be acquired. But  there is also BC Workers Compensation requirements to  replace working equipment and  clothing which keeps costs high.  Though full-time, paid  firefighters are still a feature of  the future, the additional equipment received and future expansion means "We're a big time  fire department now" Huigsloot says.  The demand to grow, according to Sleep, comes from the  Insurance Underwriters for the  area, who make recommendations on the required size of  departments. With an increase  in calls responded to being up  from 101 in 1989 to 130 as of  December 20,1990, the Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department is  now better equipped to deal effectively with emergency situations.  One of the fascinating old photographs in the recently published book 'Helen Dawe's Sechelt' ���  this 1906 print shows the first buildings on the waterfront between Inlet Avenue and Wharf Street.  Helen Dawe's book  History of Sechelt as it used to be  by Rose Nicholson  Helen Dawe's Sedwlt. By Helen  Dawe. Harbour Publishing.  Few communities are lucky  enough to have a Helen Dawe  to painstakingly chronicle the  history of the area.  The granddaughter of  Thomas John Cook who settled  in Sechelt in 1894, and the  daughter of Ada Dawe, the first  white child born in the area,  Helen Dawe's life long interest  was the collection of photographs, writings and community records of 'her' town.  Although her work often appeared in the Coast News and  the now defunct Peninsula  Times, she was not able to write  her planned book before her  death in 1983. But she left  behind a meticulously catalogued collection of  photographs, letters, notes and  other documents that has been  brought together by Harbour  Publishing in a fine book that  would have warmed her heart.  The earliest document in the  book is an 1869 application by  John Scales for a 150 acre  military land grand for District  Lot 303 on Trail Bay.  Following that are rare old  photographs of early log cabins,  of the first settlers, members of  the S<echelt Indian Band, the old  Union Steamships boats, logging and shake bolt operations,  the early hotels and summer  cabins, the trails and roads that  were later to become the present  road system.  Helen Dawe's own notes supply the background information  on the photographs, fascinating  comments such as "not many  people are aware that Sechelt  village once simultaneously enjoyed two wharves projecting  out from the Boulevard into  Trail Bay," or a caption which  reads, "the Whitakers on the  Trail Bay shingle in front of  their home...built on land  which now accommodates the  Driftwood Inn."  One learns that familiar  names of streets come from old  pioneers like Bert Whitaker and  Abe and Edith Mason; that  Selma Park is named after the  steamship the 'S.S. Selma'; that  pioneer Bert Hackett gave his  name to Hackett Park and that  Wilson Creek is named after a  James Wilson who worked as a  blacksmith in 1898.  Holy Joe's Rock in Selma  Park got its name from a picturesque  eccentric   "who  ac  quired his nickname because he  belonged to the Salvation Army, but suffered a problem with  drink and had to be saved from  time to time."  There is a photograph of  Rockwood Lodge during construction, but very few of the  old buildings pictured in the  book remain today. Many of  them were destroyed by fire.  The wooden buildings and  makeshift water systems of the  time provided totally inadequate fire protection and  buildings like the first hotels,  and St. Mary's Church and the  residential school on the Native  Band Lands were destroyed.  Today, with the rapidly  changing face of Sechelt, little  remains of the past. Thanks to  Helen Dawe, we have a record  of the time when the town was  not, as we so often hear now, a  bedroom community of Vancouver.  Sechelt was a remote place  where Vancouverites came by  boat to picnic and holiday, and  hardy pioneers, probably never  dreaming that their stump ranches and skid roads would one  day be obliterated by a modern  town, scratched a living from  the forests and the sea.

Kiwanis Home 10th year  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The Kiwanis Village Care  Home celebrated its tenth anniversary of service at a special  gathering the afternoon of  December 13 in the Home.  In his opening remarks Ozzie  Hincks, charter member of the  Kiwanis Club said the Kiwanis  motto "We build" has been  fulfilled. First in 1978 with the  Apartments and then in 1980  with the Care Home.  Corsages and pins were  presented lo former and present  staff by Directors Dan Wheeler  and Gayle Bennett. Among  these were the first administrator Shirley Snell,  followed by Hans Grossmann  in 1988, and Mary Schoeler the  present holder of that office.  Cathy Baxter the first head  nurse, Janet Rogers the first office secretary, along with Martha Schroth the present office  manager were also recognized.  Among others recognized  were those who have served the  Care Home continuously  throughout the 10 years; namely, Iris Harrison, Gilda Symes,  Irene Seward, Martina Blake,  Doreen Dunsire, Elaine  Sanders, Rita Ostrosky, Anne  Jack, Connie Van Swieten - a  highly respected group.  Ken Goddard presented a  commemorative plaque from  the Kiwanis to the Care Home;  the plaque was accepted by  Mary Schoeler for the Home.  One resident, Jim Douglas,  who has been in the home since  it opened, was deighted to be  presented, loo, with corsage  and pin. Warm applause  greeted Bill Wright who has  done such a great deal for the  Home.  Throughout the years the  Care Home has been made  home-like through the efforts of  the Ladies Auxiliary, as well as  by their acquiring a mini-bus  and by setting up a beauty  parlor for the residents.

GOLDEN WEDDING  "You are such a wonderful  example to us who are younger  married people," said Iheir  granddaughter's message.  "You have shown us that 50  years married is quite possible.  The best gift you have today is  each other."  This was the most touching  message, among the many congratulating them, that Robert  and Joy Maxwell raeived at  their golden wedding anniversary celebration held in Harmony Hall, December 11.  Following a buffet supper  served by Lil Eidet and assisted  by other Harmony Hall  members, the Master of  Ceremonies, George Withnall,  read the account that Joy had  written of the days leading to  their wedding in England in  1940. The large gathering of  friends was delighted by it.  In her account Joy wrote that  she had met Ihis young Canadian soldier his buddy called  Max on a blind date arranged  by her girl friend. This was in  southern England at a time  when air raids were almost nonstop - the Battle of Britain was  at it's height.  "When the siren sounded  during the evening dance, we  went walking in the village instead of going lo the air raid .fl  shelter, and got a little acquainted."  But Joy was not interested in  the young Canadian who had  such a strange accent, and she  "stood him up" on a number of  occasions.  "That didn't deter me," Bob  said later. "1 believed like any  good signalman in the motto of  our corps, "Speed, Vigilance,  and Accuracy".  "Despite his persistence,"  Joy wrote, "he was of not particular interest to me at the time,  since I already had a very nice  boy friend."  Not until Bob was in hospilal  recovering from burns received  in a training accident did she  relent. "I could hardly refuse to  go out with this poor soldier  convalescing, could I?"  In fact after a courtship of  three months, they were married in St. Luke's in Ihe village  of South Park in Surrey.  Robert and Joy Maxwell  "I never wished to live in  Canada I told him," wrote Joy,  "and he agreed." Fate,  however, ruled otherwise, a  kindly fate.  But the Italian campaign  soon to begin would take Bob  away from England. That and  service later in Northwest  Europe with a "mentioned-in-  dispatches" along the way kept  them apart until late 1945.  In April 1945 Joy and the two  children were assigned passage  to Canada for a "temporary"  stay. In October, Bob arrived in  Canada and met his daughter of  18 months for the first time.  The family found Lethbridge  and then Calgary a good place  after all to live. It was not until  1978 and Bob's retirement from  his position of Coordinator of  Engineering for the Calgary  Electric System that they canA  to live in Gibsons. *���  Best Wishes from all of us,  Bob and Joy.  1���                   ������                                              ,  aBilL  Aatm.                             jay**     ..^&~  ��"��<��^^  \^W9  ����< ^' *'"s^^. 1  PS*V                 J^B^H  '      mW  ML                                Jm\  '    J*     "ft  V  j$r" f  the grand finale of Gibsons Elementary's Thursday night Christmas Concert had the voices ���'! i  packed house raised in a joyful rendition of "Christmas is Love", in sign language, too.  ���Fran Burnside photo  Child Health Clinics  Child Health Clinics will be  held in Gibsons on January 8,  15, 22 and 29 at the Coast/-  Garibaldi Health Unit, 494 S.

Long before there  were many thoughts about conservation, it struck me as such a  waste to buy Christmas wrapping every year only to tear it up  and burn it three weeks later.  Unwrapping a gift is approached with care. I coax the  ribbon off by wiggling it toward  the edge of the box. The tape is  carefully and slowly peeled off  the paper or efficiently cut with  a knife. The paper is then unfolded so as not to further  wrinkle or tear it and set safely  aside .before glimpsing Ihe gift.  Such behaviour is nol encouraged but frequently greeted with  "hurry it up" or "come on",  especially when others have  presents they want to tear into.  All the better pieces of paper  gathered last year, I iron and  match to the appropriate gift  box, but still I'm left short. For  a while I used the funny papers  or newsprint roll-ends decorated  with potato prints. Then I'd  . dress it up with a gay ribbon.  Still these packages had the  funky look.  I bought wrap this year. But  as I cut and taped, the trees in  the yard whispered and swayed,  doing a beautiful wind dance. I  called the recycle depot to ask if  they'd take shredded, crumpled  Christmas paper. No, too  variable a lot. So, next year for  me 'funky' will become the  'concerned conservationist' image in packaging and be the  latest look.

Roberts Creek has  been granted $1 million; the  proposed addition is expected to  cost $1.8 million. In an effort to  get as much of an addition as  possible, you are being asked to  look at the brief and sign the  petition if you wish. It will be  presented to the Honourable A.  Brummet, Minister of Education early in January.  LIGHT UP THE SEA  Over the years people have  clustered at the mouth of  Roberts Creek at around 4 pm  New Year's Day to watch their  homemade toy boats lit with  candles carried by the tide out  to sea.  Originally a Thai tradition, it  has been adopted by Creekers.  The boats are usually a piece of  wood with an enclosure formed  by wrapping wax paper around  four protruding nails. A glob of  playdough in the center with a  candle in it forms the hurricane  candle necessary to keep a light  burning at sea.  The boats are decorated with  nature's gifts - pine cones,  boughs, flowers, and then set  adrift. At dusk the lights can be  seen flickering and floating.  Everyone is invited to join  Roberts Creek in this tradition.  LIBRARY NOTES  When Philip Gordon died  last summer, Roberts Creek lost  a distinguished citizen. He was  deeply mourned by his family,  friends and neighbours.  One of these friends has now  made a fine donation to the  library in his memory. For the  next few weeks these handsome  books Onley's Arctic, Robin  Ward's Vancouver, and Robert  Batetmsn, An Artist in Nature  will be on display in the library  before going into general circulation.  We urge you lo come in to see  them and to share our thanks  and our pride in this fine acquisition.  DAVIS  mm  S & VIEWS  On Christmas Eve  by Uurilee SoUi, 885-5212  It's Christmas Eve! I hope  everyone has done all their  shopping and are all ready for  the big day. It brings back  memories of when I was a child  and how exciting it was on  Christmas Eve with the anticipation of Santa coming and  opening all our presents.  I remember laying awake for  what seemed like hours. Then  finally it was morning. Whoever  woke up first (there were five of  us) would rush to see what was  in our stockings and what Santa  left. Then in to see who else was  awake. After everyone had a  look, we would go back to our  rooms.  'When it seemed a decent time  we would rush in to tell Mom  and Dad what we got. If it was  still too early, we were allowed  to get our present from Santa  and play with it until the time  was more reasonable. There  were 13 years between me and  my youngest sister, so  Christmas didn't change for  quite a few years.  It became fun again, when  my girls were young. The excitement of Christmas Eve was  back. I guess it means that  Christmas is for children!  Although Santa and presents  are a big part of Christmas, we  mustn't forget the real reason  for celebrating. Going lo church  was always pari of our  Christmas.  I would like to lake this opportunity to wish everyone a  very Happy New Year.  POT LUCK SUPPER  Save your Christmas tree and  bring it over lo the hall for Sunday, January 6. Weather permitting, they can be burned  after our annual Pol Luck Supper which starts at 6 pm sharp.  Bring a casserole and maybe  some goodies.

We were the two  new families in the small town  of Creston. I was a single  mother with three children and  Ruth Sims had her two to raise.  She worked as a waitress in  the Phillips 66 gas station  restaurant while 1 was the band  teacher for the high school (and  music specialist in the grade  school).  Our families pushed the  population of Creston to over  .100 when school began in the  fall of 1966. We often talked  about how hard ii was to lind  housing in the small town. True  to ils name, Creston was the  highest ground in an area surrounded by oceans of grain and  a switching station for train  loads of wood chips supplied  from a mill on the Columbia  River. We were 30 miles from  the Grand Coulee Dam.  The Iwo Sims youngsters  were in high school and my  three were in Grades 4, 5 and 6.  Ruth told me one time lhal kids  the ages of ours had one thing in  common���they eat to grow and  grow to eat. Roger was a husky  fellow and our coach, Larry  Markely, bent the rules a bit  and excused him early from daily football practice lo go to his  after school job al the grain  elevator. He knew a good line  backer when he saw the strength  in Roger and knew, from his  own experience, lite need of the  plucky family.  Coach Markely had a wife  and Iwo children and enjoyed  seeing life through the eyes of a  contented family man. One day  he told me of another coach in  the area and said we should  meet. In time, we did meet and  ihis made the matchmaker in  Larry very happy���especially  ttfeause il appeared the match  was made in heaven.  And so Laurie entered our  lives. I thought it a strange way  for a man to spel his name  -L-A-U-R-l-E-and asked  htMVil anyone had ever said lhal  that was a girls' spelling? He  said "No". Aftw a quick study,  1 decided that his size and demeanor probably kept anyone  from asking that question.  In late October, my youngest  ���Lou Ann���became very ill  and 10 days into a hospital stay  of 18 days, we learned she had  mononucleosis. It was 40 miles  lo ihe Davenport Hospital and  nearly every day someone  would phone Ihe school and say  they had lo go (here on an errand after school and I might as  well go wilh them rather than  drive myself. I realized the  tremendous kindness of these  townsfolk and never turned  down an offer. People brought  food and desserts lo my house  because Ihey said "You don't  have much lime lo cook when  you go to hospital and then  back to school in the evenings."  Football season, Band  Festival, Thanksgiving and early basketball kept all of us busy.  I frequently spent three or four  nighls a week at school for a  number of functions. School  was the cenlre of attention for  the town. In 1966 Ihese things  were expected of teachers.  As the Christmas season  began and the snow fell we were  no longer strangers in Creston.  The people from Ihe surrounding area were enjoying the  romance and the students from  both high schools, many of  them cousins, said that they  always knew when there had  been a lover's quarrel, because  we were cranky in school.  One day after school, 1 saw  both the Superinlcndanl and  Principal on some school  business and remarked lhal I  wanled Laurie, wilh his famous  black Lab, Dusty, to spend  Christmas Eve nighl with me  and Christmas Day. They said  thai shouldn't be any problem  as 1 had three kids as  chaperones���and kids do talk.  The day of Christmas Eve  was cloudy and a fine snow fluttered down all day. Laurie and  my son, Mall, were on the hipped roof of Ihe old farmhouse  we lived in, adjusting Ihe TV  aerial.

HWY 101, GIBSONS       ^SKSSSP 886-2664  Irish memories  by Margaret Watt, 885-3364  About this time every year, I  indulge in a wave of nostalgia  for the Christmases I spent as a  child in Eastwell in the west of  Ireland in the house of my  grandmother.  "The emphasis then was on  lots of good food, friends  visiting and laughter, lots of  laughter. One of the rituals that  sticks in my mind was the  lighting of a candle in every  window of the house. The light  was a welcome to any weary  passerby.  My grandmother believed  lhat any one of these passersby  could be the Christ Child and  so, even after an accident one  year with a candle which left the  curtains on one window in scorched tatters, the lighting of the  candles continued year after  year.  I miss the simplicity of those  days and I miss Eastwell, but  most of all, especially at this  time of the year, I miss my  grandmother.

There are many lo whom we  are grateful in our every day life  as well as at this special time of  year. To name but a few, there  are all those good people who  give of their lime and skills to  do volunteser work in our community, such as the ladies of Ihe  Hospital Auxiliary and of the  Welcome Beach Community  Association.

At this busy time of year 1  would like lo say thank you to  the folks who put all that mail  in our little green boxes. They  do not have an easy task with all  the changes which have been  made in the postal servic:, and  they are the ones who have to  take the flack when someone is  unhappy about the situation,  despite the fact thai we know it  is nol of their doing. In all kinds  of weather they faithfully get on  with ihe job. They should know  that they are really appreciated.

To all our readers, may you  have a wonderful festive season  followed by a very Happy New  Year!  California break  by Ruth Forrester  A two week vacation in sunny California can turn out to be  quite an adventure.  Many viewers will have seen a  recent news item regarding the  problems of the sea lions in the  Monterey .area taking over the  marina there. We spent a night  in a waterfront hotel in  Monterey on Cannery Row, an  interesting historical area where  Steinbeck lived and wrote.  All night long we could hear a  noise which sounded like the  barking of hundreds of dogs,  but which was in fact, the sea  lions at work and play. To us,  the sound, intermingled with  the roar of the ocean, was quite  delightful.  First thing in the morning we  w,alked along to where the sea  lions were congregated and  couldn't believe our eyes. There  was a rocky breakwater reaching out almost a quarter of a  mile from shore which was  covered in sea lions of all ages  and colours.  At the other end of Cannery  Row is the aquarium which we  highly recommend as a place to  visit if you're in that area.  We decided to pay a visit to  the mission at a little place called Sw Juan Bautista, a very interesting and peaceful place. At  least it was peaceful until we  realized that there wu a film  crew in town shooting a TV  movie.  Having a keen interest in  show biz, 1 had to find out what  it was all about. It was our good  luck to get chatting to a charming elderly gentleman who had a  part in the movie and who took  great delight in showing us  around and introducing us to  the director and to some of the  stars in the movie.  Our guide was intrigued by  the fact that I wrote for a  newspaper in Canada and was  delighted to spend the afternoon with us. The Coast News  business cards were distributed  generously. The director, John  Korty, had shot several films in  the Vancouver and Victoria  area, so was familiar with our  part of the world.  The location for the filming  on that day was on the main  street of the little town. The  store fronts were all made to  look like a town called Jefferson City in the '30s. There was  bunting across the street and a  parade was being filmed of the  Old Timers Day celebration  during which a brawl took  place. The movie is called 'The  Long Road Home', adapted  from a novel by Ronald B.  Taylor who was writing at  about the same time as  Steinbeck.  Teachers Noelline Bellemare and Roger Lagasse stand with a por  lion of the 40 Sechelt Elementary students who raised $1006.94  during the UNICEF Hallowe'en campaign,    -stum BaraMe pinto  Creston Christmas  Continued from page 11  tree decorations���tinsels, lights,  balls and a box of candy canes.  We stayed a few minutes at the  store after it closed to have a  cup of Christmas Cheer. The  owners lived in the rear of the  store.  After dinner, we bundled  ourselves in the car and drove to  within two blocks of the Sims'  home We cut the car lights and  crept slowly up to the house.  We saw only one light. Carefully and quietly the boxes and tree  were placed on the dark porch.  It had been decided earlier  that we would leave Matt there  to knock on the door and run,  but not until we had driven  down the street a block. We  stopped and watched as Matt  ran his way through the back  yards and all of a sudden he was  flying. He got up from his fall  all snowy-looking but unhurt.  When he got to the car we learned he had run into a clothesline.  The giggling didn't stop for a  long time after we got home.  The hot cocoa tasted good as  we listened to carols on TV and  sat looking at the Christmas  lights. 1 don't remember which  person said it���they all now  claim authorship���but these  words were spoken, "This has  got to be the best Christmas  ever."

And often they fall on power  lines.  When power is knocked out, a crew is dispatched as soon as  possible to locate and correct the problem. If a tree is on a power  line the crew must first clear it away. Then they can repair the line  and restore power.  We work as quickly as possible. We bring in crews from many  areas and use contractors extensively. But it still takes too long to  restore power if many trees are down, or the trouble is in an  isolated area.  Hydro's priority is to restore service where outages are affecting  the largest numbers of customers, and deal with single outages  later. Outages in remote or hard-to-reach areas naturally take  longer, but our goal is always to restore service as quickly as possible.  Our responsibility is providing power. But property owners can  help us enormously by ensuring that trees and tree branches are  kept well away from power lines.  Recent severe weather conditions caused many such interruptions.  Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated.  Thank you.

EGMONT NEWS  Winter nights in Egmont  by Pixie Percy, 8M-92M  It's official. Winter is here  and it feels like we were picked  up and thrown into it. The Arctic Front that moved in brought  such high winds and cold  temperatures that all the local  scenery looks like it's been gift  wrapped in ice.  Last Tuesday night was an  especially long one for  everyone. Whether it was with  frozen water lines, no power,  broken anchors or just chilly  bones, the solstice announced  its impending arrival with the  roar of a lion.  Fish farm workers were  evacuated  from  the  sites in  HARBOUR WATCH  Hotham Sound and some fish  pens evacuated themselves as  the storm marched through the  area. The fish pens were located  the next morning but the fish  farm workers are minus a wall  in their living room on the barge  they occupy. Phew! A stoimy  night on the water is like  meeting up with Mother Nature  in a dark alley.  CORRECTION  A small correction to last  week's column. The accompanying photo identified Valdy as  playing at the Backeddy Pub  when, in fact, he was playing at  the Egmont Community Hall.  Sorry for the mix-up. Thanks  Valdy, come back soon.  EGMONT CHRISTMAS  Egmont celebrated Christmas  at the Community Hall Friday  night. There was a pot luck dinner followed by a visit by Mr.  Christmas himself, Santa Claus.  The children had a wonderful  time, as did everyone else.  Thanks to Santa and his elves.  Egmont has elves of its own  all year round and this is their  season so I would like to  acknowledge them now and say  thank you for a very good year  of hard work and good energy  put out for all of Egmont to enjoy.  The Community Hall and  School building have undergone  incredible transformations and  H  all the dinners and celebration*  that took hours of preparation  and planning are too numerous  to mention but were much appreciate. All of these people's  efforts are a large part of what  makes Egmont a good place to  live.  Well, this is it, the night of  nights. It's too late to worrjj  about anything you might have  forgotten so you might as well  sit back and relax and enjoy the  holidays. Turn on the little  lights, put on the Christmas  music and have yourselves a  Merry Little Christmas and a  Happy New Year. Until 1991.  you better be good, you-know-  who is on his way! ,  Be safe at home  Action demanded  Seethdt resident Fred Becker demanded action from the  Sechelt Council Wednesday night regarding the need for a  sidewalk along Trail Avenue, between Anchor ud Mermaid  Streets.  Becker brought a petition, signed by 120 residents of the  area, that decried the deplorable traffic conditions along the  road.  Citing poor weather conditions that force p<edestrians onto  the road and reckless drivers that foree pedestrians off the  road, Becker asserted, "We need a sidewalk before someone  gets hurt."  Council assured Becker the matter would be addressed at  the next Finance Committee meeting.  by Jacalyn Vincent  Here are a few suggestions on  keeping your home safe  throughout the holidays:  Salt stairways outside; do not  use an over abundance of cords  in one outlet; keep trees well  watered and use only safety  lights; do not tuck extension  cords under mats or carpet;  place all decorations well away  from wood-burning stoves;  check smoke alarm batteries;  have your extinguishers in a  handy accessible place; use  candles and Coleman lanterns  in an open safe area.  LEGION NEWS  The Royal Canadian Legion  Branch 112, will be celebrating  their New Year's Eve Frolic between 9pm and midnight. Along  with the pot luck supper will be  novelties, snacks, and prizes.  Limited tickets are available at  the Legion bar for $6 per person. Certainly a celebration not  to be missed.  CUB SCOUTS  Our cub scouts will have their  ���bottle drive on January 5. This  great cause is well appreciated  throughout the year. Have your  bottles in plastic bags or boxes  ready for them when they come  to your door.  SLIPPERY ROADS  With this cold spell upon us  now the roads are very slippery  at times, even though they are  well salted. Please use caution  and have a designated alcohol-  free driver for your visits and  parties. Remember that road  blocks will be in effect.  SHUT INS  Well wishes go out to Alfie  Harper, who is in satisfactory  condition at St. Mary's  Hospital. We all wish you a  quick recovery Alfie!  AS THE TIDE CHANGES  In the new year, if you have a  story of interest, don't hesitate  to give me a call.  My husband and I would like  to wish our family and friends  and all your family and friends  a very Merry Christmas and all  the best in the New Year. A safe  and happy holiday for all!

Esplanade closure  protested in Sechelt  The proposed closure of a  ��� .'portion of Ocean Beach  ���^Esplanade was strongly pro-  '���f. tested at the December 20  i fhieeting of the Regional District  '"by Waller Thompson, the  . lawyer who is acting on behalf  1 of residents in the area.  I  K Thompson told Directors  - that because of misunderstandings and misconceptions thai  occurred as much as 20 years  e "ago, some of the houses in the  I area were built on land thai is  ; not actually owned by the  ; residents, but on Crown land in  ; front of their legal properly.  An   application   by   the  residents to buy the portions of  this Crown land fronting on  ; their properties has been turned  i down by the Regional District.  Director Jim Gurney pointed  out that it was the intention of  the original survey of 1905 lhal  ��� the properties were io be waler  access vacation lots.  He wenl on to say that ihe  legal portion of ihe lots are  steep and very difficult lo build  on and were never intended for  : permanent homes. It is almost  impossible lo service them.  Some of ihe residents are trying  [to get around the building pro-  ���blems by pushing fill over the  bank and Ihis could lead to  severe erosion problems.  ; A motion was passed lhal  development permits will not be  issued where there is an encroachment on Ocean Beach  fesplanade by works, structures,  or fill or realignment of property boundaries.  A majority of Canadians are  at risk of developing high blood  pressure but know little about  "the silent killer", a recent  survey revealed.  The National High Blood  Pressure Quiz showed that 61  per cent of Canadians who participated in the computer survey  are in the medium to high risk  categories of developing high  blood pressure.  The findings of the survey  also indicated that high blood  pressure is generally  misunderstood by Canadians,  but particularly among those  who already suffer from high  blood pressure.  More than 10,000 Canadians  completed "The National High  Blood Pressure Quiz between  May and August, 1990. The  Quiz, an interactive touchscreen computer, is located in  pharmacies across the country.  The Quiz asked a series of  true and false questions and  also assessed if an individual  was in a low, medium or high  risk of developing high blood  pressure.  More than one out of 10 respondents (12 per cent) said they  have been diagnosed as having  high blood pressure. The incidence of high blood pressure  was particularly high among  those over 55 years old, with upper weight ranges and among  those who consume large quantities of alcohol.  Most Canadians (S3 per cent)  are in a medium risk category,  while eight per cent are high risk  and a little more than a quarter  (27 per cent) are in a low risk  category.  The survey revealed that 76  per cent of Canadians believe  that people who are under a lot  of stress tend to develop high  blood pressure. In fact, high  blood pressure is not caused by  stress, although stress can raise  blood pressure temporarily.  More than one-third (34 per  cent) of the respondents incorrectly believe that people can  feel when their blood pressure is  high and that this is when they  should take their medication.  A more alarming finding is 39  per cent of respondents who  have been diagnosed with high,  blood   pressure  believe   this'  dangerous falsehood also.  In fact, the disease is often  termed "the silent killer"  because it displays no outward  symptoms to alert people to the  fact that they have it. Left un  treated, high blood pressure can  lead to heart attacks, strokes or  kidney failure.  "I am alarmed to learn that  people may be tampering with  their medication and taking it  only when they "feel" their  blood pressure is high," said  Bill Kassel, a Toronto pharmacist, who was one of the first  phramacists to use the Quiz.  "We take great care to make  sure patients understand  medication for high blood  pressure must be taken regularly, as prescribe, whether they  feel well or not. If they don't  the consequences could be extremely harmful, if not fatal."  The good netws is that most  Canadians,   and   particularly  those with high blood pressure,  have had their blood pressure  checked within the last few  years. Health cue professionals  recommend that blood pressure  be checked a minimum of once  every two years.  And most Canadians who  took the Quiz are aware that  alcohol consumption, excess  weight and diet play a role in  high blood pressure. Here are  some tips to help keep your  blood pressure at a safe level:  * Avoid drinking more than two  standard alcoholic drinks per  day (four ounces of wine, one  ounce of liquor or 12 ounces of  beer).  * Make sure your diet is not too  high in salt.  * Eat potassium-rich foods,  such as fresh and frozen fruits,  vegetables, potatoes and low-fat  dairy products.  * Keep your weight in a healthy  range (your doctor will be able  to tell you what weight is right  for you).  * Don't smoke.  If you .are interested in assessing your risk of high blood  pressure or testing your  knowledge of the condition,  check your local pharmacy window for a poster indicating that  the Quiz is there, or speak to  your pharmacist or doctor  about your blood pressure and  what you can do to keep it at a  safe level.  Silviculture practice changing  Silviculturists Ted Nash and  Mel Scott of the Regional Office of the Ministry of Forests in  Vancouver gave a presentation  on the current practices in  silviculture for members of the  Forest Advisory Committee  (FORAC) at the December 19  meeting.  Using a wide variety of  statistics, Nash told FORAC  members that herbicides such as  Vision are the most effective  method of brush management  in reforestation. But with the  growing public opposition to  that practice, he said that  Forestry is experimenting, with  considerable success, with the  use of sheep for grazing on the  weed species in the forests.  Citing the work of tox-  icologist Bruce Ames of the  University of California, Scott  maintained that the risk factor  of Vision is minimal, and that  marv other substances, inducing some foods, are just as  risky.  "We are aware that the  public perception does not see it  that way," he said.  "The important point is that  wide scale spraying of pesticides  is something that is imposed on  us. There is no choice," commented Regional District Director Brett McGillivray.  "People are suspicious of  scientific statistics and tests.  There   have   been   mistakes  before. Residents of this Coast  have clearly stated that they will  not tolerate herbicides."

The Sunshine  Second Section  Erin Johnson, holding her prize, Is flanked by (from left) SIB Councillor Trent Dixon, Sechelt  Elementary Principal John Nicholson, and Chief Tom Paul.  ���Jan Michael Sherman photo  Sechelt Elementary student  names new SIB theatre  Erin Johnson, an 11 year old  sixth-grader from Sechelt  Elementary, is $50 richer this  Christmas thanks to her vivid  imagination.  Erin was the winner in a contest sponsored by the Sechelt Indian Band designed to come up  with a distinctive name for their  new theatre.  'Raven's Cry' is what young  Ms Johnson submitted as her  entry, admitting to the Coast  News that "This was the fourth  name 1 came up with. First 1  thought of 'The Mystic', then I  came up with 'Moonlight' - but  I can't remember the other  one."  The Indian Band received an  "overwhelming response" from  Sechelt Elementary. Chatelech  .Secondary was invited to participate in the competition but  chose not to.  In a press release put out for  the occasion of the announcement of the winner - and the  presentation of the prize ~ the  Indian Band noted that their  council had reviewed all entries  submitted and decided that  'Raven's Cry' was the best.  Noted the release "this name  really is appropriate as the raven  has many legends. The raven is  known as a storyteller ~a  trickster. The raven stole the  sun to bring light. And the  raven has played many parts in  traditional stories and legends.  The name really brings a lot of  meaning to our theatre."  Chief Tom Paul and Coun  cillor Trent Dixon did the  honours at the brief ceremony  held outside beside the new SIB  complex. Erin's parents were on  hand, as was Sechelt Elementary Principal John Nicholson,  who was presented with an impressive carving of a traditional  native bird.  Jaammmammmmmmamammamatm^mm^^  Guidelines outlined  Forestry Committee gets reminder  by Rttse Nicholson  A conflict of opinion at an  earlier Forest Advisory Committee (FORAC) meeting has  prompted a strong letter from  Economic Development Commission (EDC) Chairman  Maurice Egan to FORAC  members.  The conflict arose when IWA  representative Murray Cantelon, reading from a prepared  statement at the October  meeting, expressed ideas that  some FORAC members considered inappropriate.  Egan's letter reminded committee members that: "They are  not appointed as advocates for  In Gibsons  their employers nor special interest groups; FORAC is not a  political forum; they are appointed because of their varied  experiences in the forestry field,  their knowledge of the forest industry and thdr interest in serving their community...their role  is to examine all aspects and  sides of forest related issues and  questions, invite a wide range of  outside opinion, encourage and  respect differing viewpoints,  contribute their own ideas and  suggestions based on personal  experience and endeavour to  reach consensus."  Egan's letter went on to say  that "in recent months it  (FORAC) seems to have lost its  objectivity   and   sense   o  moderation. Its positive impacl  on decision making is being  weakened as a result."  Egan asked that members  review the Committee's terms  of reference and "anyone who  cannot accept these ground  rules and work constructively  within ihem should voluntarily  cease to be a member of the  Forest Advisory Committee."  Although some regular  members of the committee were  absent at the December 19  meeting, the ones that were present agreed to study the terms of  reference and discuss the matter  further at the next meeting in  January.  Council Watch  SCRD approves  purchase of Hillside  by Rose Nicholson  The Regional District has  given final approval for the purchase of the 470 acre Hillside  Industrial Park at a price tag of  $2.3 million.  At the recommendation of  Economic Development Commission (EDC) Chairman  Maurice Egan and Economic  Development Officer Bill  Moore, directors approved a  motion that Hillside will now  become a project of the  Regional District.  The  existing   Hillside  Ex  ecutive Committee (Jim  Gurney, Dave Bakewell, Bill  Moore and Maurice Egan) will  be joined by Regional District  Administrator Larry Jardine,  and become a committee of the  Regional District.  Egan told directors that the  first phase of the project, the  Concept Plan, is now complete  and $90,000 of the $95,000 cost  incurred will be recovered from  the provincial government as a  credit against the purchase  price.  An   estimated   operating  budget for 1991 of $150,000 was  approvesd, and it is expected  that development of planned  projects for the site will recover  the purchase price of the property in a relatively short time.  "The price we are paying for  this property is considerably less  than anything on the open  market," commented Gurney.  "This project will benefit the  Lola Weestell's request for  Council to appoint a liaison to  the Friends of Gospel Rock  organization was refused by the  Mayor, who said "Friends of  Gospel Rock is a special interest  group. If we were to set that  kind of precedent we may have  to consider appeals from other  causes." The Mayor added it  may also prove to be a potential  conflict of interest for some  council members to be aligned  in such a manner.  . Later in the evening, Westell  also addressed the apparent  violation of business license bylaws by book vendors in Lower  Gibsons, and urged the Town to  look in to the energy efficiency  of lighting in Pioneer Park.  1 Town Administrator Lorraine Goddard urged merchants  to report illegal vendors in the  Town limits, to which Westell  replied she had. Superintendent  Ralph Jones admitted he had  spoken to the vendors but could  not stay with them all day to  watch-dog their operation or  force them to buy a business  license.  The energy efficiency of  buildings and lighting at  Pioneer Park will be studied by  building inspector Wilbur Smith  who will report back to council  in the new year.  Mayor Eric Small advised  Council to waive any decision  over the Coast Garibaldi Health  Unit lease, which has not been  renewed, and is currently on a  month by month basis.  But negotiations are in the  making and Small said "the  unit's need for more space is not  a viable reason not to make  payments in the interim."  Council agreed to wait until  next January to deal with the  matter, this following the  release of a previously requested  report from the Town's administration.  The Sunshine Coast Cab  Company has notified Council  that it has applied to the BC  Motor Carrier Commission to  raise its fares. Both Aldermen  Ed Steeves and John McNevin  inquired about the rates of  other cab companies on the  Coast, and questioned whether  the increase was a fair one.  Council carried a motion to  look in to comparable rates. As  of January 1, all cab fares���full  and part-time drivers included���will be taxed six per  cent by the GST.

Westergaari ~  With the old year almost  gone and a new one about to  begin, we'll all be reflecting on  . the past, making resolutions for  the future and trying to  remember to write 1991 in our  cheque books.  For many of us, the best  thing about December 31 is the  celebration. Everyone loves a  party, but some of us tend to  overdo it a little and end up  ! -spending the first day of the  ,* -New Year in agony.  The medical profession  : knows that alcohol, once con-  : sumed, transforms into toxins  in our liver, which poison a few  ' of our brain cells. Sound  -familiar? They also interfere  . -with the pituitary gland, telling  | it to dehydrate the body. That's  ; why, even though you think you  drank enough the night before,  you wake up with a powerful  thirst.  And the poor tummy feeds  bad because those drinks that  made the test of you feed so  good, irritated it.  Drinking less is the best way  to avoid discomfort, but difficult to remember. Chemicals  other than alcohol, found more  in cheaper booze, do a lot of  damage, so try the expensive  stuff or purer alcohol drinks  like vodka. Bartenders are the  real experts on this subject and  here are some of their cures:  Grant Parker, Cedars Pub;  drink beer and tomato juice.  June, Light House Pub; take  vitamin Bn before and after you  drink  Tom McLaughlan, Back Eddy Pub; lots of sleep and lots of  water.  Thea Ruri, Gramma's Pub; a  virgin Caesar, sleep or hair of  the dog (more of what you had  the night before).  Lynn Woodward, The  Wakefield Inn; champagne and  orange juice (a mimosa) or soda  and bitters.  All the best for the year to  come and may these suggestions  help you to have a better morning after the night before.  Touring in the  Queen Charlottes  by Peter Trower  ROBERTS CREEK  A LEOION  A0**��      Branch 219  New Year's Eve  Party  Our final day on the Islands,  the quixotic wither designs to  cooperate. We board the small  car ferry MV Kwuna at  Skidegate Landing and take the  20 minute trip across the inlet to  Moresby Island. This is the one  area of the Charlottes I have  visited before. Forty years ago,  as a bewildered young  greenhorn, I set my first  chokers here.  In those distant days, Sand-  spit was simply a large logging  camp, surrounded by the abandoned homesteads of earlier  farmers and fronted by a  primitive airstrip. As we drive  into town from Alliford Bay, I  see how radically things have  changed.  Sandspit has become an attractive community with stores,  cafes and a posh new hotel. The  windy, minimal airstrip has  evolved into a well-appointed  airport. It is impossible to gauge  exactly where the logging camp  used to be. Modern homes and  businesses have long since  replaced the rough bunkhouses  of the post war years.  Unlike   Graham   Island,  Moresby has few roads that are  not activdy used for logging.  We drive south for a few miles,  along a stretch of blacktop that  rapidly becomes gravel. Abandoned logging roads, I may  once have followed, snake off  through the second-growth  timber. Eventually, we .reach a  group of unpretentious cabins  that prove to be one of the  Haida's summer fish (amps.  There .are traces of an old midden. Nothing seems familiar.  Back in .Sandspit, we make a  brief stop at the new hotel. The  customers .are mostly loggers,  relaxing after work. A young  guy comes in fresh from the  bush, wearing torn jeans and a  stanfield shirt, evoking  nwmories of my own years in  the woods.  Our time on the Islands is  rapidly running out. We return  to Charlotte City and have a  leisurely meal before catching  the 11 pm boat back to Prince  Rupert. (The odd sailing hour is  designed to accommodate longdistance truckers.)  We have tasted the magic of  the Queen Charlottes and, barring a few internal dissensions,  Nikki Weber aad these two enthusiastic young musldans enter  tain Christmas shoppers at Trail Bay Mall In Sechelt.  found them alive and well.

Actually, her name is Kathleen Westergaard,  and what she's aware of is how much of a  challenge���and how much sheer enjoyment-  Coast News readers are about to receive in the  form of a brand new feature Kathl^n's dubbed  COAETWOKM.  COAITWOHM is a weekly crossword  puzzle with a difference. Thematically, each  and every puzzle will deal with some aspect of  the Sunshine Coast, from places where we eat  and drink to those where we can just sit and  think.  Created by the very talented and creative Ms  Westergaard, COAfTWOlUM will feature a  new and unique puzzle weekly. Once readers  get a look at the first one, which will appear in  our January 7, 1991 "New Year's Edition",  there will be no doubt whatsoever that  COABTWOeRBB is for imaginative people  with curious, searching, and persistent minds.  A native of Fort St. John, Kathleen  Westergaard now resides on a pink ex-prawn  fisher with a cat named Jag. She's a 26 year old  Sagitarrian with the kind of quicksilver turn of  mind which one associates with those generally  anonymous folk responsible for the delicious  frustration and ultimate exhilaration which accompanies high-calibre crossword puzzles.  "When I first moved up here to the Coast",  declares Kathleen, "I couldn't get the Province  to do the crossword every morning with my coffee." She grinned widely: "You know���it was*  my own way of getting my brain into gear!"  But if necessity is indeed the mother of invention, Kathleen Westergaard is no slouch in the  creative-coping-with-a-dire need department.  "I started fooling around���you know, work  ing out kinda primitive puzzles on my own.  Eventually I came up with a few which I had the  nerve to lay on a few friends. Just try them out,  right?"  Westergaard pulls a face which suggests  something slightly tart had invaded her memory  tissues.  "But people I asked to try my puzzles were  highly resistent. Their basic response was on the  order of 'Oh, I can't do those things!' So I went  back to the old drawing board and came up  with the idea of doing each puzzle with a  recognizable theme. And the Sunshine Coast  seemed like a natural to me." An evocative  shrug is accompanied by a gesture of expressive  hands.  "And here we are-COAKWOKM"  That's COA8TWOHM, dear readers.

"The library" says Library  CommittM Chairman Stephen  White, "is in exactly the same  situation as when you have too  many people on an elevator and  you need to get two more people on and you can't close the  door...you would be glad you  don't have to work there."  To put up a new building  would cost in the area of $1  million. But White believes the  existing building could be expanded for approximately  $350,000. Or, he added, the  library could be moved into the  Health Unit building.  Alderman John McNevin  said Coast Garibaldi Health  would have to be evicted in such  a case, but White pointed out.  "the earliest we could move if  we could would be 1992"  should the Health Unit be moved to new quarters by the provincial Ministry of Health.  With potential funding from  both Areas E and F, and private  sector money, the Town of Gibsons could also contribute time  and man hours to aid the committee's application for funding, the council was told.

Being a last minute shopper, this w��k was my last chance to check this  one off, With fond memories of a Christmas once spent in Greece, I decided the  Parthenon Restaurant to be the perfect choice. Reservations for dinner for four  and arrangements with my friend were quickly done.  Not only is Greece noted for its hospitality and friendly folks, but also for its  distinctive cuisine and the Parthenon certainly followed through in true Greek  tradition. Our smiling waitress quickly seated us, simultaneously providing us with  menus and refreshments, plus crayons for the kids,  Although the menu offered everything from top sirloin steak to Italian fettucine  alfredo, we were definitely in the mood for something Greek.  The kids chose pizze, the all-time favourite, while we decided on the more exotic  sounding Parthenon Platter for two. Piping hot whole wheat pita bread served  with a refreshing satziki dip began our evening's meal.  With just enough time between for a friendly chat and a sip of wine, the pizza  and platter arrived. The pizza quickly Ixgan to disappear, testifying to its  popularity. Arranged to perfection, the platter overflowed with the dishes of  Greek fare I remembered so well ��� dolmades, kalamari, souvlaki, fr<tsh Greek  salad, spanakopita, jumbo prawns, rice and roasted potatoes.  Although the menu specified the platter was for two, we found it to be more  than enough, leaving no room for the ultimate of Greek delicacies, baklava.  Next time, we assured ourselves, the Ptuthenon Restaurant will definitely be on  my next year's Christmas list!  v&  v      rmuHunstmw  i.  Andy's Restaurant Lunch and dinner specials every day.

Coast News, December 24,1990  Sjaoti  Pity the Breakers  by Wily Morton  and Stuart Bnmside  The saga of the beleaguered  "Suncoast Breakers Hocky Club  look another turn downward  Inst week when Seechelt Council  accepted the decision of the  Parks and Recreation Committee not to interfere with or  change the present operating  policies of arena manager Vicki  Speck.  What this means on the bottom line is simply that the  valiant pucksters are stuck with  ' <iheir outrageously nocturnal ice  time at least through the 1991  ��� season.  ���.. Making  the  announcement  :-.was committee chair Michael  Shanks, who noteKi lhat, in effect,   the   kids   must   take  . precedence   over   the   older  ^ players when it comes to assigning rink time. He further intimated lhal the Breakers' old 8  io 10 pm ice time is, for all intent and purposes, nothing  more than a memory at this  ���point.  When   Coasl   News  Sports  Golf in mid-December?  Golfers took advantage of a  break in the weather lo gel  in nine holes last week.  ���Stuart Burnside photo  Editor Billy Morton and news  reporter Stuart Burnside caught  up to Jim Gray ��� one of the  most diehard of the Breakers ���  there was a lot of grit, but no  'quit', in his tone. Oh sure, he  was crumbling around the edges  a bit emotionally, but, hey, how  would you feel if you'd stick-  handled your way through the  kind of bureaucratic pick up  team the Breakers have had to  face-off against these past few  months?  "We will survive!!!" Gray's  words burned up the line like a  Bobby Hull slapshot from the  point.  "Thety didn't even consult  us!", muttered Gray, adding  with more than a soupcon of  bitterness "We didn't really expert them to change their decision...we didn't expect anything  from them."  As for the Suncoast Breakers,  well, it ain't quite the end, but it  sure enough ain't party time at  the club house either.  "What this comes down to,"  said Jim Gray, "...is that 17 of  our guys won't be able to play.  Our membership has dropped  from 43 to 26!"  As far as Gray and the other  Breakers are concerned, the  arena doeesn't seem to care. It's  'public', but they aren't trying  to be very accommodating.  So there ya have it. The old  make way for the young even  when the young are perfectly  able to put on the pads, the  skates, the gloves, grab their  sticks and hit the ice at a later  hour than their adult caretakers  might be willing to accept.  We gotta wonder what the  result might have been if the  arena management had put a  later hour rink time to a vote of  the 17 year olds who now hold  the Breakers' old ice time.  Who knows? Maybe we're  wrong. Maybe the young adults  would vote for the earlier time  just so's they could hit the  locker room, grab a shower,  and head out for a night on the  town.  (Arena I.

Perfect balamx is the  ultimate in a curling slide and  until you achieve this, there will  be problems with the accuracy  of your delivery.  Stretch the broom arm out  comfortably from the body with  the broom handle running  toward the small of the back or  pull the broom into the body,  again with the handle running  toward the small of the back.  Either of these two positions  is considered acceptable!  Choose the position which is the  most comfortable for' you.  Ideally the broom should be  riding close to the surface of the  ice without .actually touching so  that it may be used for balance  when required.  Seldom do curlers achieve  this perfect broom positioning  so the broom usually rides the  surface of the ice alongside the  curler. Be sure the broom is  riding lightly so it does not pull  you off line.  When the body comes forward from the back, the broom  should be positioned with the  shaft running toward the small  of the back and the timp running along the top of the ice.  The broom handle should be at  right angles to the body and  tucked under the elbow.  The brush end should be  pointing slightly ahead at all  times. The furthest back the  broom should be during the  slide is even with the sliding  foot. Your head, trunk and  shoulders should be in a fairly  upright position and aimed in  the direction of the skip's  broom, which is the target you  are to shoot at.  Your eyes should be glued to  the target and should remain  that way throughout your  delivery. Again try not to look  down at the ice or the rock during the delivery. It is important  that the broom not drag so  heavily along the ice surface  that you are being pulled off the  target by the friction of the  broom on the ice surface.  If your body, shoulders and  head are not squarely aimed at  the broom after your release of  the stone, the chances are you  are leaning too heavily on your  broom.  We completed the Friday  Night Fun League Christmas  Spiel last Friday. The Steeves  and McBride rinks look the  honours. Just a reminder that if  you want to join us for a winter  of curling, just come up to the  club on the night you wish to  curl or phone the club at  886-7512.  You could also consider sparing for a small Ave dollar fee,  either to learn the game, or to  re-introduce yourself to the  sport. We welcome any newcomers to the club. Come up  and meet us. lt is a great way to  find some new friends in the  community. We lay off now for  the Christmas holiday and  return to curling in the New  Year.  Good curling, the Season's  Best to you and your families  and we will see you again in the  New Year.

The device Is being used by RCMP Counter-Attack  Checkstops which are In operation throughout the Holiday  Season. ���Joel Johnstone photo  by S.an Mom  Many of the important parts  of wilderness ecosystems are so  small and seemingly unimportant they .are overlooked, and  too many times this leads to  their destruction. Although  people may or may not be affected by their disappearance,  most assuredly something with  a greater sensitivity in nature  will be.  One good example of a small  yet important part of the wild  was the small creek that ran by  our cabin. We called it Trickle  Creek, and you won't find it on  any map. As for the name, well  it didn't have one, so I did the  honours. It's a very small part  of the Chaster Creek watershed  and aside from adding to  Cheer's volume of water during times of rain, it provides an  oasis of sorts during the dry  summer months.  Like most creeks, Trickle  directs the flow of surface water  down the mountain, and in doing so uncovers a secondary  source of water. In a portion of  the creekbed where the cap-rock  is exposed, an underground spring emerges.  ��� Such springs collect then-  water from much higher up the  mountain, where surface waters  seep into crevices in the cap-  rock. The water travels  downhill like till water must, but  only surfaces where other  crevices penetrate deep down  and make contact with the  underground streams.  When other creeks many  times the size of Trickle have  dried up, she still gives forth  water to those who need it.  Slowly trickling out of the  ground, the small pure spring  runs along the cap-rock for  perhaps eight feet down the  creekbed before seeping into  gravel lower down.  Just below where the spring  surfaces, I constructed a 300 to  ���400 gallon reservoir right in the  creekbed. It would fill with  water providing a gravity-feed  water system for the cabin, as  well as improving on an already  existing watering hole for the  rest of the forest community.  Deer, bear, squirrels and a  host of oth<ers visited the reservoir twice daily, in the early  morning ud at dusk. During  the driest time of summer, it is  the only source of water within  half a square mile, the next  closest beting Chaster, which is  also fed by underground  springs.  I know of many such springs,  not all of which are located in  creekbeds. Aside from using  any number of techniques to  pick up on the natural electromagnetic field generated by  these underground streams,  (which is how we located the  stream that feeds our present  detep well), there .are other  telltale traces as to where thety  are located.  Where underground streams  travel fairly close to the surface  thety can affect root systems of  trees as I discovered while  gathering deadfall for firewood.  Much to my delight, as I had  to pack all our firewood on my  shoulders at the time, I found  dead trees nice and dry landing  upright and all in a row here  and there in more or less a  straight line going down the hill  following the unseen stream.  These particular types of  streams are fairly easy to get to  as they travel for a good  distance along the top of the  cap-rock, lt just depends on  how much soil one has to dig  through in order to reach it,  which   in   most   areas   of  Elphinstone, is pretty shallow.  A lot of diehard hikers such  as myself will follow deer trails  if they happen to be going in the  same direction as I'm travelling.  However, if you .should go in  the direction the deer chose to  go, you'll quite often find that  many deer trails intersect at  springs, especially in higher  regions where the creeks dry up  quicker. These springs nuke for  an excellent place to camp during the blistering heat of summer.  I make it a point whenever I  camp near such a spring to improve on the holding facilities.  Like the spring in Trickle  Creek, many are short-lived and  seep back into the ground only  moments after they have reached the surface.

I  I  Book Cornor  Portrait of an eccentric genius  Balloons, kids and Christmas carols were pari of ihe festivities on  Cowrie Street in Sechelt as merchants on 'the street' banded  together to provide holiday fun lhat also included Santa Claus,  face painting and strolling musicians. _ru,i, Forrester photo  by Montague Royal  The world of popular musk  has always attracted more than  its share of oddballs and ect*n:  tries. Tiny Tun and Leon Red-  bone spring immediatdy to  mind. And there is the seemingly endless stream of over-  amplified rock groups, each trying to outdo the others in tacky  bizarreness.  In too many cases, outlandish  costumes .and crass gimickry are  mere coverups for a dearth of  any genuine talent. Singer/actor/songwriter Tom Waits is  certainly as eccentric as they  come but, in his case, the quirky  stage persona is no mere screen  for musical ineptitude.  Waits is one of the most formidable talents working in the  business today. A new biography, Small Change by  British writw Patrick Hum-  phries (Omnibus), charts his erratic rise to fame.  The remarkable Mr. Waits  was born in Pomona, California on December 7, 1949. His  parents were both school  teachers and his early years  could be described as middle  class normal. His family encouraged his musical leanings  and by the age of 15, he was  playing piano and guitar in a  highschool R and B band called  'The System'.  But Waits was a genuine  original.

Mt 33047  '60s, he .began to take his .tarings from the jazz and popular  music of earlier decades. He  also became obsessed with the  life .and legend of Jack Kerouac.  Ignoring the psychedelic  revolution of the late '60s,  Waits turned back the clock and  adopted the lifestyle of a latter-  day beatnik. He beegan writing  his own songs and working as a  single, opening for such acts as  Charlie Rich and Jerry Jeff  Walker.  In between gigs, he worked at  a variety of jobs, driving an icecream truck and serving as a  bartender and doorman. Inevitably, he was 'discovered' by  Asylum Records Exec., Herb  Cohen, who signed him to the  label in 1972.  Thus began the period of  Waits' career, generally known  as the Asylum Years. His first  album Closing Time, wu a low  key effort that showcased some  moving songs but gave no real  indication of what was to come.  Heart of Saturday Night, produced by jazzman Bones Howe,  was a much stronger outing.  Here Waits began to follow the  same meanstreets that Kerouac  had followed, displaying the urban angst and humour that  would become his trademark.  Subsequent albums ��� Small  Change and Hue Valentine continued in this gritty mode, gaining Waits a large cult following.  During the '70s, Waits was  determinedly living the life he  Queen  Charlottes  Continued from page 16  Pointed Dreams on Haida  Gwail  The weather flickers craiUy here  to fickle Pacific whims  Rainbows arch brilliant In the  wind  ribbons of colour leaping  among the eagles  from bogs and log dumps  to fade like painted dreams in  sudden sun  This is a place of painted  i dreams-  spectral images that fluctuate  flood and fade  sapping in and oul of thought ���  Haidas in their pride and  prime  monarchs of the frothing  coastal waters  striking weaker mainland  like fierce ghosts -  paddling home with slaves and  to their sea-locked kingdom  Painted dreams on time's shifting canvas ���  ancestral settlements  abandoned in the smallpox  plague-  roofless lodges -  toppled doorposts -  moss-furred unfinished canoes  totems rotting wanly In the  ram-  proud warrior people  conquered by an alien germ  Painted dreams  of ancient  indecipherable petroglyphs  enigmatic on sea rocks  carved by unknown artisans  of some forgotten race  long before the Haida  claimed these misty Islands  Painted dreams  of first white settlers  raising cabins  in hazy clearings -  the loggers who followed them  to roar like hungry dragons in  the hills  with saws and donkey engines  plundering primeval forests -  strewing devastation In their  wake-  caulk-booted conquistadors  riding roughshod across  the untrammelled land  Painted dreams on Haida  Gwaai  where past and present Intertwine  Bite filaments  of some unseen web  holding us captive  in threads of legend -  strands of sad history -  meshes of magic.  toebec  sang about in his songs, abrar-  ding his voice to a ragged woak  with booze and cigarettes. He  seemed destined to burn out  early as Kerouac had done.  But the '80s were to bring  some radical changes, both in  Waits' musk and his self-  destructive lifestyle. He branched out into film work and was  hired by Francis Ford Coppola  to score a picture called One  Rrom Toe Heart. He received  an Academy Award nomination  for his work on this movie.  While working on the film,  Waits ma his future wife,  Kathleen Brennan. Thdr subsequent marriage and the birth of  two sons, provided a definite  stabilizing influence on the gutter bard.  Waits' music beegan to take a  radical rww turn. He veered  away from the conventional instrumentation he had employed  up to this point, signed with  Island Records and produced a  series of albums that owed more  to Bertholt Brecht than Jack  Kerouac.  The second of these, Rain  iiaareo  wpl5  Dogs, attracted a large audience  and gave him his first smash hit;  He followed this with FrMk'l  WU Yean, an offbeat stag.*  play that also became a hit  album and a movie that was  essentially a one-man show,-  called Big Time.  Waits further consolidated  his reputation with a solid i  ting job alongside  Nicholson and Meryl eStreep i  the film Ironwted, playing the  sort of skid road character lie,  had actually been in thj��  dissolute '70's.  Today, Waits, his wild yeaij,  apparently behind him, lives a,'  quiet life in Kansas with his wire!  and sons, planning new pro-!  jects. WhatevCT he comes up!  with next will undoubtedly bt;  worth a look or a listen.

Others that go all rear round  usually do so because of smaller  openings in the cap-rock, which  regulates the amount of water  being released from deep  beneath the ground. These  'Tricklers' are the most valuable  of all springs and the most  vulnerable.  Should you happen across  one of these little springs in your  travels, on behalf of those who  have no voice to speak, please  trrad softly.

The annual adjustment,  which this year is 4.8 per cent, is  based on increases in the Consumer Price Index, Statistics  Canada's cost-of-living  measure.  The Minister also announced  increases for people who  become eligible for Canada  Pension Plan benefits in 1991.  Here too, rates are increased  each year to keep the benefits in  line with general increases in  salaries and wages.  For those who become eligible for benefits in 1991 the maximum monthly retirement pension at age 65 will be $604.86.  As contributor can begin receiving a retirement pension as early  as age 60. The amount will be  reduced for pensions beginning  before age 65 and will be increased for those beginning  after age 65.  The maximum amount for a  person becoming eligible for a  disability pension in 1991 will be  $743.64 per month while  benefits for disabled contributors' children and orphans  of deceased contributors will be  $113.14 per month per child.  Maximum benefits paid on  behalf of contributors who die  in 1991 will be $339.96 for surviving spouses under age 65 and  $362.92 for surviving spouses  aged 65  and over. Survivor  benefits are no longer discontinued on remarriage. Those  whose benefits were discontinued on remarriage can apply  to have their benefits reinstated.  There is also a lump sum  death benefit payable under the  Canada Pension Plan; the maximum payable in respect of contributors who die in 1991 will be  $3,050.  Canada Pension Plan  benefits are based on a person's  actual earnings and contributions for the period during  which that person could have  contributed to the Plan. There  are yearly minimum and maximum earnings levels between  which persons contribute. For  1991 these levels are $3000 and  $30,500 rwpwtively. The maximum contributions are $632.50  for employees during 1991.  Effective January 1991, the  maximum Old Age Security  pension will be increased to  $354.92 monthly from the present $351.41.  The maximum monthly supplement (GIS) for single, low-  income pensioners will go up to  $421.79 from $417.61. The  maximum for low-income married people will rise to $274.73  from $272.01 for each spouse.  The maximum Spouse's  Allowance���paid to needy people between 60 and 64 who ate  married to GIS recipients���will  increase to $629 65 from  $623.42. The maximum  Widowed Spouse's Allowance  will rise to $695.14 a month  from $688.26.  All of these benefits are fully  indexed every three months based on increases in the Consumer  Price Index.  The Minister also announced  that effective January, 1991, the  federal government's Family  Allowances will rise to $33.93  from $33.33 in most provinces  and in the territories. The adjustment is based on increases in  the Consumer Price Index in excess of three per cent.  The refundable Child lax  Credit for the 1990 taxation  year will provide up to $575 per  child based on family income.  Also, parents who qualify can  claim an additional $203 on  their return for each child age  six and under for whom no  child care expenses were claimed.  Do you have a bunch  of small jobs to do?

Police cutbacks real  by Jod Johnstone  "Our cutbacks are very real.  They do exist and they will affect the policing of your community."  This is what RCMP Sergeant  Ed Hill told Gibsons Town  Council last Tuesday. And,  though he did assure them "in  case of any emergency there will  not be any cutbacks," the Gibsons Detachment will now have  two officers in one car.  Car accidents not blocking  roads or involving injury will  now have to come to the  RCMP, and subpronas will be  done by telephone ��� adding to  that "if you don't come to us  we will come to you."  Hill says Victim/Witness  Programs and other support  services outside the detachment  will be expected to fill the gap  left by the volunteer man hours  being eliminated.  He did point out the Elphinstone School visitation program  would continue, though,  because of the positive results,  and the unit's emphasis on  preventive policing and advising  town planners in developments  would continue.  Sechelt tax  breake review  Coast News, December 24,1990  25.  by Stuart  The tax exempt status of approximately 200 Setchelt properties could be up for review, according to a notice of motion  giveen at Wednesday night's  Sechdt Council meeting.  Alderman Doug Reid gave  the notice of motion as an objection to a current motion that  would create four by-laws  revoking the tax exempt status  of four groups: the Sechelt Pen-  ninsula Rod and Gun Club, the  Timber Trails Riding Club, the  Senior Citizens' Housing Sode-  ty, and two properties owned by  Branch 69 of the Setnior Citizens  ofBC.  The new motion would create  a select committee of three electors that would review all of the  existing tax exempt properties to  determine whether they should  continue to hold that status.  Malcolm Shanks, Sechelt's  Municipal Administrator, said  that, following a review, at least  18S of the 200 properties would  probably retain their tax exempt  status.  Reid told the Coast News in a  Play audition  A play reading and audition for parts in 'Predous Sons' by  George Furth, to be staged by No Name Theatre in early  April, will be hdd right after New Year's, on Thursday,  January 3.  The play will lie directed by Jay Pomfret, who previously  directed the highly successful productions of 'Bus Stop' and  'Sriuced', and who played the lead In last fall's critically acclaimed drama 'The Diviners'.  Acting experience is an asset but not a requirement. All  aspects of technical staging will be a big part of the play, and  people interested In backstage work .are invited to take part.  The January 3 audition will be hdd at the Pomfret  residence in Roberts Creek, beginning at 7:30 pm. For directions, or if you are interested In participating but cannot attend that night, please call Jay al 886-11900.  later interview that his objection  to the motion creating by-laws  to remove the four properties  from tax exempt status is that  "Thetse by-laws have never txsen  discussed in committee...It's  not fair to isolate four properties when there are at teat 15 or  20 more (of the 200) that also  need reviewing."  Rdd said that to isolate any  select groups from the 200 that  enjoy the tax free status would  be equivalent to "taking liberties with the municipal act (section 9)".  Former Alderman Len  Herder spoke at the meeting as  a delegate of the .Senior Branch  69, (one of the four groups included in the proposed  by-laws), saying "There are  numerous privileges given to the  council and community by the  seniors." He pointed to the  meeting in session (hdd free of  charge in the Seniors' Hall) as  one of the benefits provided to  the community.  While Herder spoke, Alderman Rdd interjected several  times. Finally, Alderman  Wilson, feed up with Rdd's tactic, demanded that he "Id the  man speeak." Wilson summed  up the entire episode as "dreadfully shabby".  The four by-laws that sparked the controversy were "old  business" left from the previous  council, items that had reached  the third reading level before the  notice given by Rdd. Thdr fates  are now in limbo, with a decision to come after all 200 properties have been reviewed.  "It's the proper way to do  it," said Alderman Wilson, "It  gives the group a chance to appeal any dedsions before the  Assessment Authority takes  them off the exempt list."
