The final 1981 budget ofthe Sunshine Coast Regional District  passed with little comment or opposition last Thursday night until  a tax requisition item of $50,500 for the Pender Harbour Pool was  read.  . "That's far too high," said Area A Director Joe Harrison.  Harrison said that though he is aware that the specified area  referendum for the pool is "open-ended", he felt that the people of  Pender Harbour had a commitment from himself and from the  board to keep to the 2.2 mill ceiling originally estimated. The  150,550 requisition represents about 2.8 mills.  "I will resign tonight rather than break that commitment,"  Harrison stated.  ,. Finance committee chairman Brian Stelck pointed out that the  budget for the pool was not balanced and that approximately  $13,000 in revenues had been lost during the seven week closure of  the pool that resulted from the controversial "$5,000  misunderstanding" with the School Board.  "It was the decision of the Aquatic Society to close the pool,"  Harrison said, pointing out that he and Pender Harbour  Secondary Principal Tom Rothney had asked the Society not to  Revelation in the Legislature  Last week Rae Ellingham, Coast News astrologer, predicted  "mysterious sea-related incidents," and such was the case over  the weekend.  Hugh Mowatt, a Gibsons resident, decided to go fishing  Saturday afternoon, March 28. He drove his pick-up truck towing  his boat and trailer to the bottom of Gower Point Road to the  boat launch. The tide was up and Mowatt backed his boat and  trailer into the water which was about three feet deep. According  tn Mowatt, his trailer romehnw gotunbitchrd. He drove into the  water, believing it to be shallow, the water coming up to below his  door.  "I swung around and was going back to get the trailer and all of  a sudden I was underwater! I didn't know they'd dredged down  there."  Mowatt had driven his truck around a scow that was moored in  the bay and fallen into a drop off.  "I couldn't get the door open or the windowdown but I found a  wrench and smashed out the back window. I don't remember  much after that."  Mowatt was rescued by two passers-by on a scow from the  Keats Island Baptist Summer Camp, Caretaker Dave Andrews  and his assistant for the day, Alf Glenesk who has a summer home  on Keats Island.  ��� John Moora Photo  This apparent tragedy had a happy ending last Saturday when Gibsons man Hugh Mowatt was revived after a near drowning.

Tragedy and near tragedy  Gibsons man saved from drowning  They rushed Mowatt to the Gibsons Government wharf where  an ambulance driver administered first aid and sped him to the  hospital where he was treated for hypothermia and spent the night  in intensive care.

Another in the series of "sea-related incidents" was the reported  cries for help anditohinilightiin Halfmoon Bay Friday evsning, ���  March 27.  The SOS came from a boat adrift between the mainland and  Merry Island. Roily Dean of Redrooffs Road spotted the boat  and heard the cries. He phoned the Sechelt RCMP, who  contacted Art McPhee ofthe Provincial Emergency Program on  the Coast who in turn tried to contact members ofthe Volunteer  Rescue Team. After the eighth try, ("It was Friday night,  everybody was out. It's understandable," said McPhee) he  contacted Air-Sea Rescue on Vancouver Island. The Hovercraft  came to the rescue of the four people adrift in their boat that had  incurred engine trouble. They were brought ashore safely. It was  not known at press time who the occupants of the boat were.  The most unfortunate incident of the weekend by far was the  death of 47 year old, Lennart Johnson of Burnaby. He was found  in Plumpers Cove off Keats Island on March 24 drowned. There  were no direct witnesses to say how he entered the water. RCMP  are doing an extensive search to answer the questions surrounding  Johnson's death. Coroner Dan Devlin believes there is no reason  to expect any other verdict but accidental death.  Riparian rights  pose problems  by John Moore  The Marina Committee of Gibsons municipal council held an  in camera "strategy meeting" on the afternoon of Monday March  23 and the first order of business was the knotty question of  riparian rights in the Gibsons bay area.  At the outset of the meeting Municipal Clerk Jack Copland  noted that, earlier the same day, a waterfront property owner had  expressed concern at the possibility of having to sign over in  perpetuity his riparian rights to complement the proposed  municipal marina.  Chiefly at issue is the common law riparian "right of access"  which, in this province, prohibits anyone from obtaining a  foreshore lease or placing any erection in the water without the  consent of the "upland owner" whose waterfront property faces  the site.  Council faces the possibility of having to obtain the written  consent of each and every waterfront property owner in the bay  area before a foreshore lease for the new marina could be  obtained. Council has obtained a sample copy of such a "consent  form" used by the Municipality of West Vancouver which,  according to Municipal Clerk Jack Copland, waives the riparian  rights of an owners' "heirs and successors in perpetuity", but  council intends to contact the Ministry of Lands, Parks and  Housing seeking clarification of the wording of the form.  - Meanwhile, a group of about twenty bay area waterfront  property owners met two Sundays ago to discuss the question and  resolved to seek legal counsel. Frank Braithwaite, spokesman for  the group, told the Coast News, "The question is not whether or  not we're going to have a marina, but whether or not we have to  sign away our riparian rights, because once we sign they're gone  forever."  Council appears to have as little relish for the task of obtaining  the consent of the waterfront owners as the owners have for giving  up their riparian rights. Mayor Goddard has raised the question  of whether or not the whole exercise is necessary, since the  proposed marina should not interfere with the right of "access to  navigable waters" of any of the residents concerned.  Lands Branch Regional Manager Larry Sorken commented  cautiously on the situation when contacted by the Coast News last  week. Sorken confirmed that, though riparian rights extend only  to the high tide line, the riparian right of access does require the  upland owner's or owners' consent before a foreshore lease can be  granted or any erection placed in the water in front of that  Please turn to Page Twenty  Natural gas  The Sunshine Coast may get natural gas by 1984,  according to B.C. Hydro's Vancouver Island natural gas  pipeline Project Manager R.G. Blakely, but Mackenzie  MLA Don Lockstead, who met with Blakely last Wednesday in Vancouver, remains skeptical.  According to Lockstead, Blakely revealed at the meeting  that Hydro is considering running spur lines from its  southern route for the proposed pipeline up to Squamish,  Woodfibre, Port Mellon and the Sunshine Coast. Powell  River would be served by "looping back" the line from  Comox on Vancouver Island. Blakely suggested that the  project might be complete within three years.  However, Lockstead said, Blakely admitted that no  decision on the spur lines has been made by the board of  directors of B.C. Hydro. Blakely also revealed that the cost  of such spur lines was not included in Hydro's estimated  cost for the pipeline project to Vancouver Island via the  southern route.  "The added cost of these spur lines will make the price  higher than the Westcoast Transmission proposal,"  Lockstead said, "I'm not optimistic that we will ever see  this project materialize."  Cooper's Green  zooms in price  Historic Cooper's Green is for sale: the price for three  acres, $1,500,000; the suggested usage, according to last  week's Vancouver Sun advertisement by Century 21, "an  80-room hotel".  Cooper's Green, for years has been sought and fought  for by Halfmoon Bay residents and the regional board  for use as a regional park.  Now, since the provincial order in council that finalized  the sale ofthe road allowance to the Cooper's for $11,200  in August 1980 joining the Cooper's property into one  piece the market value of the land has soared from the  previously assessed value (for park purposes) of $150,000  to $1,500,000.  At the time of the road allowance sale, residents of  Halfmoon Bay protested to the provincial government  claiming that turning over the road allowance (thus  uniting two segments of the green) would facilitate  development by real estate interests and would work  against a regional board program to open up access trails  to the beaches in the area.  "We already have interested buyers," Larry Reardon, a  local real estate agent for Century 21, told the Coast  ^ News.  act hastily and close the pool. "The big increase is not the school  board's fault. The responsibility for the loss lies with the Society.  They'll have to live within their budget."  Harrison did not resign, and later stated he would consider an  increased tax requisition, "only if the community is willing to fund  it, but they must be consulted."  Finance committee chairman Brian Stelck suggested a possible  solution for this year, at least. Stelck pointed out that two items in  the pool budget, a recreation/weight-training room that would  cost approximately $6,000 to complete, and a $2,000 "thermal  blanket" that would retain heat in the pool facility and cut power  costs, are both revenue-producing or cost-saving and both are  essentially capital expenditures.  Stelck recommended that a maximum of $42,750 be raised  from taxes and that the difference be made up from Joint Use of  School Facilities funds towards those capital expenditures.  The board accepted Stelck's recommendation, which will be  put to a meeting ofthe Joint Use of School Facilities committee  scheduled for 4:00 pm. Monday, March 30 in the regional board  offices.  Land swap deal not appraised  Pressure from Opposition MLAs in the Legislature and a  surprise phone call to CPR last week forced Minister of Forests  Tom Waterland to release documents revealing that the  provincial government's land swap deal with CPR for 5,000 acres  in the Skookumchuck area was concluded without an appraisal of  the land involved.  Despite repeated questions from Opposition MLAs Don  Lockstead, Bill King, Alex MacDonald and Opposition leader  Dave Barrett, Waterland initially refused to release details ofthe  agreement on the grounds that all parties involved had not been  notified of a public disclosure.  j While Lockstead continued to question the Minister, Barrett  ���tepped out and telephoned CPR's Pacific Logging Division.  Returning to the House, Barrett informed the Minister he had just  ipoken with Mr. Sloan of Pacific Logging and been told that there  was "no problem" and that the company had no objection to the  disclosure of details of the agreement.  "The Minister then tabled the document," Lockstead told the  Coast News, "and we could immediately see why he was reluctant  to do so. No appraisal ofthe value ofthe land had been done prior  to conclusion ofthe deal. The government didn't even know what  they were trading away."  Lockstead said the agreement does allow for a third party to do  assessments of the land value now that the deal is complete, but  said that the deal "looks even worse than we thought."  Lockstead said that, to his knowledge, no assessment of the.  land values, other than the estimate he originally obtained from  an independent professional forester, has ever been made. That  estimate indicated that timber and real estate values could amount  to as much as 100 million dollars.  "I'm appalled at the whole transaction," Lockstead said.  - John Moora Photo  They're off! Sixty-three hardy entrants answer the sound of the starter's pistol. Sunday's Fourth Annual April Fool's Day Run  saw a record number of entrants and a new record time. (More pictures on Page Twelve.)  Despite the weather  Records set in Fool's Day Run  Despite the inclement weather of a cold and rainy March day  sixty-three entrants started off from Elphinstone Secondary  School in Gibsons on Sunday, March 29, on the Fourth Annual  April Fool's Day Run between Gibsons and Sechelt. The run has  attracted more entrants every year since its inception. ���  The first finisher this year was Steven Brindle of Vancouver  who covered the run in one hour and thirteen minutes, almost  fifteen minutes faster than the previous best time set by two-time  winner Adrian Belshaw. Besides the Coast News Cup, winner  Brindle received a Nike club bag.  Local man Raul Poole finished a close second in one hour and  fifteen minutes followed by James Oostenbrink of Vancouver  who came in one minute behind Poole. Poole was rewarded with  Adidas TRX Trainers and Oostenbrink collected a Nike club bag.  The run this year featured recognition of various categories and  Chris Craigen of Vancouver was the first woman to finish. She ran  into Sechelt only one hour and thirty-four minutes after the start.  Local businessman Arne Tveit-Pettersen was the first finisher in  the Men's Master Class for men over forty. Arne finished in one  hour forty-six minutes. Stephen Christian was the first finisher in  the under fourteen category with a finishing time of one hour,  forty minutes. These winners all received Nike T-shirts and  jogging socks courtesy of Trail Bay Sports.  At least 10 of the sixty-three starters were from Vancouver and  they were unanimous in their praise of the course and how much  fun the event was, despite the rain. The Vancouver runners  thought the event well-organized and found all the people  associated with it most friendly and helpful.  In future, plans are for the April Fool's Day Run to be listed in  the magazine B.C. Runner so more non-local runners will know  about it. If it becomes a registered course, those wishing to  participate in such runs as the Vancouver Marathon will be able to  use their performance here as an official qualifying time.  A near dark spot in an otherwise pleasant event occurred just  outside Sechelt when one runner was knocked into the ditch by a  passing car. Wayne Newport recovered and was able to finish in  fourth place. It is thought lhat Newport, despite race instructions,  was cutting the corner on the wrong side of the road at the time of  the incident.  Finishers after the first three in order of completion were:  Wayne Newport, Bill Morrison, Lonnie Brock, Chad Craigen,  Dave Estergaard, Mike Pearson, Leith Skinner, Allen  Whittleton, Chris Craigen, Brian Rooner, David MacLeod,  Roger Douglas, Stephen Christian, Garry Gray, Chuck Belong,  Jack Pope, Lyn Christian, Clifford De Schcpper, Kim Graf, Arne  Tveit-Pettersen, Michael Read, Sean Whalen, Lawrence  Stoochnoff, Barb Nelson, Brian De Schepper, Robert Makwood,  Steve lllingworth, Stuart Frizzell, Ricki Ferguson, Darcie Young,  James McLachlan, Rieta Hanson, Brandan Whalen, Mary  Dcgnan, Harvey Bist, Steven Horvath, Heidi Brongers; Jane  Degnan, Lynette Willoughby, Lisa Matthaus, Gerd Kuer, Dona'ld  Maedel, Shaun Thorold, Danny Hemstalk, Roberta Esau, Leif  Mjanes, Manuane Joe, Bear, the first and only canine entry,  Susan McKibbin, Ken Birkin, Kelly Quinn, Greg Sylte.  The Coast News regrets that it did not receive finishing times for  Bruce Pedersen, Brent Berry, Trevor Chambers and Freddy  Williams.  Besides the record entry, the April Fool's Day Run this year  featured a five-mile run starting at Browning Road. Taking part in  this modified effort were Steven McLeod, Renee Fountain and  Aron Bjornson.  k*Mi The  .Sunshine  Coast News, March 31  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every  Tuesday, by Glaistord Pratt Ltd.

Second Class Mail Registration No, 4702  Come off it, Joe  Residents of Pender Harbour might be  forgiven for asking just who their regional  director is representing these days.  Harrison took a strange position at the  regional board meeting held last Thursday  when he objected to the budgetary item  dealing with the Pender Harbour pool  because the loss of revenue incurred during  the closure was 'the fault of the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society'.  Let it be said that the Aquatic Society  took the action it did after its efforts to  obtain a hearing were stymied by the  inattention of our local governing bodies.  Harrison's surprise outburst against the  Aquatic Society and in defence of the  school board, which no one present was  attacking, is doubly surprising in that he  . had absented himself from all consideration of the matter since a meeting held at  Chatelech in February between Regional  Board and School Board representatives.  Having excused himself from representing  his electorate because of What he  apparently saw as an awkward situation  since he is a school teacher in the employ of  the school board, Harrison would have  been well advised to stay out of it.  The question could be asked as to why a  school teacher is unable to deal with issues  which come up in the regional area which  he has been elected to represent because  one of the parties is his employer. Whose  interests is Harrison protecting by  removing himself from such an issue and  could it be that silence just wasn't enough  in this case?  April Fool's Day Run  The April Fool's Day Run first  engendered in the pages of the Coast News  in a jocular exchange between George  Matthews and Fran Berger has taken root.  Any event which took place in the kind of  weather prevalent last Sunday and  attracted a record number of entrants is  here to stay.  Special thanks are due John Denham  and Steve Clayton of Trail Bay Sports for  their organization of the event. Assistance  also came from Charlene McCallum, Rieta  and Lex Hanson, and Fran Berger.  The Sunshine Coast Fitness Group  manned the aid stations, the Coast News  provided oranges and lemonade and Lil  Degnan provided the baked goodies. The  Coast News- Cup was accompanied this  year by '1 Made It!' ribbons for all  finishers.  Trail Bay Sports provided T-shirts and  jogging socks; the Nike and Adidas  companies provided prizes for the first  three finishers; Dr. John Farrer and Mike  Vaughan patrolled the highway to offer aid  if needed and all deserve thanks.  Perhaps most of all, the hardy runners  who braved the elements and rose to the  challenge of the Fourth Annual April  Fool's Day Run deserve bur thanks and  our congratulations.  ...from the flies of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO boat launching ramp at the end of  Residents of Halfmoon Bay, Egmont Headlands Road by Ernie Cartwright.  and Pender Harbour are protesting the Council is in favour of the proposal but  intentions of the Provincial Emergency thinks locals will have their objections.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  ��*  George Matthews  The social and fashion  pages of our newspapers  bravely keep showering us  with breathless details of the  forthcoming nuptials between  the Queen's eldest son and  Lady Di.  I say bravely because  while we are digesting news  about the choice of the designers for the young lady's  wedding dress - it may be  pink - the front pages of the  newspapers are daily revealing more and more sordid  spy scandals involving upper-  crust Englishmen and dating  back to the years before the  Second World War.  Most of the scandals were  born in the Thirties because  there were in the Thirties two  equal and opposing evils  disturbing the rest of those  favoured few at the centre of  Britain's privileged power  structure. From the perspective of the English ruling  classes the growth of Soviet  communism was as much of a  threat, or more, than the  madman in power in Germany.  It may be worth remembering that there is an old man  still in prison in Spandau  Castle who is living testimony  that the German High Command was convinced that the  ruling classes of Britain could  be persuaded to side with the  Nazis. Rudolf Hess, Hitler's  right-hand man, was parachuted into Britain in the  proclivities spawned by the  the support of the landed  aristocracy on the side of the  Germans against the Soviet  menace which surely threatened their infinitely privileged  lives.  As it turned out, badly for  Rudolf Hess and Adolf Hitler,  there was not the co-ordinated  support for the German cause  that they had hoped for. Hess  was thrown in prison, Britain  fought in support of the  Russians, the Germans were  fighting a two-front war and  the rest is history.  Some of the villainous spies  presently being unmasked in  Britain were originally entangled with the world of  Soviet intelligence in the  Thirties. Their anti-fascist  sympathies combined with  many of the furtive sexual  proclivities spawned by the  English public school system  kept many of them as pawns of  the Communists for up to forty  years and revelations lately  have ranged from the art  advisor to Queen Elizabeth  to Sir Roger Hollis who was  for years head of M1.5, the  British Intelligence Service.  The gushing and fulsome  preparations for 'the wedding  of the century' in London this  summer take on an even more  gossamer quality with the  allegations made recently in  Britain that the Communist-  infiltrated MI.5 thwarted an  undoubtedly right wing coup  against the Labour government of Harold Wilson in 1968  led, it is said, by none other  than the late Lord Mount-  batten, cousin of the Queen.  Now, goodness knows, I  have no wish to offend those  for whom the gigantic and  expensive and frivolous carnival of a royal wedding is  sacrosanct, but surely the  vision of the mother of parliaments being rescued from  Britain's aristocracy by an  intelligence service riddled  with homosexuals being blackmailed into the service of the  Soviet Union is enough to  make all but the most dedicated of monarchists choke on  their morning toast and tea.  For my part, I cannot even  say that I am unduly surprised. A constitutional monarchy to withhold the titular  head of state from the bear-pit  of politics is one thing, but the  enormous load of free-loaders  attached to the skirts of the  queen - many of them drawing  enormous salaries for doing  very little from an impoverished country and many of  them through privilege gaining positions of power and  prestige that nothing in their  makeup equips them to  handle - is entirely a different  matter.  It is my conviction that  many of the troubles which  bedevil Britain today, which  have seen it slide from a  position of prominence in the  world of commerce to a point  where it is almost everybody's  poor cousin is traceable  directly to its class system of  which the monarchy is the  keystone or the linch-pin. The  much maligned British working man has known intuitively  for generations that he lives in  a world of 'us and them'.  'Us', to the working man is  the ill-educated masses who  even when Britain was the  richest country in the world  eked  out  a desperate  sub-  v..������������������ ������v.-.-.-.-.v.'.y;  sistence living; 'them' refers  to the ruling classes of whom  the poet Siegfried Sassoon  said: "Those infinitely privileged ones/ Whose lives are  so padded, petrified and  pleasant" and the resentment  born of the perception of  that social dichotomy has  brought a once-proud country  to its present place as the  chronic invalid of Europe.  None of this matters to the  social arid fashion columnists.  They will continue to gush and  coo about the marriage of  a singularly unimpressive  young man and his young lady  as though it were the love  story of the century or a  significant something in the  history of man. It may be  unfortunate for Charlie and  his darling that so much of  the corruption which habitually surrounds British blue-  bloods is percolating to the  surface just when we are all  suupposed to be oohing and  ahing about the possibility of  the royal bride wearing a  gown of pink.  easy or successful.

I would  Love you ten years before the Flood:  And you should if you please refuse  Till the conversion of the Jews.  My vegetable love should grow  Vaster than empires, and more slow.  An hundred years should go to praise  Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze.  Two hundred to adore each breast:  But thirty thousand to the rest.  A n age at least to every part,  And the last age should show your heart.  For, Lady, you deserve this state;  Nor would I love at lower rate.  But at my back I always hear  Time's winged chariot hurrying near:  And yonder all before us lie  Deserts of vast eternity.  Thy beauty shall no more be found,  Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound  My echoing song: then worms shall try  That long preserved virginity:  And your quaint honour turn to dust;  And into ashes all my lust.  The grave's a fine and private place,  But none, I think, do there embrace.  Now therefore, while the youthful hue  Sits on thy skin like morning dew,  And while thy willing soul transpires  At every pore with instant fires,  Now let us sport us while we may!  And now, like am'rous birds of prey.  Rather at once our time devour,  Than languish in his slow-chapt pow'r.  Let us roll all our strength, and all  Our sweetness, up into one ball:  And tear our pleasures with rough strife,  Through the iron gates of life.  Thus, though we cannot make our sun  Stand still, yet we will make him run.  Andrew Marvell  ��*��*��*����*-**.*.*. ***��**-*>*��������*^�����-��.��*^.**^Zi  .-L  ���aaMataa Letters to the Editor  Coast News, March 31, 1981  Harrison a "star witness" too  Editor:  My conscience bit me last  week as I read your front  page   interview   with   me.  It wasn't your paper's fault.  You reported what I said,  faithfully. Only, some of it  didn't come out the way I  meant it.  (For readers who tuned in  late, the interview was about  a Supreme Court case recently  ended. The case followed a  protest over B.C. Hydro  power line construction).  In the interview I wrongly  implied that all the defendants  came from Powell River  except myself. Many are  really from Texada Island.  I mention this because objection to the power line is  quite widespread, and in fact  protesters came from points  in B.C. as far as the Peace  River.  That wai bad enough, but  conscience really gave me a  nip when I read how I'd described our "expert witnesses"  to your reporter.  Three authorities were allowed to speak on our behalf:  an economist, a molecular  geneticist and our own Joe  Harrison, director for Area  "A".  All three did excellent jobs.  1 was proud of Joe: he told  how. our Regional District lost  the battle with B.C. Hydro, so  that Pender Harbour's drinking water got sprayed with  herbicide. He outlined the  SCRD's unsuccessful efforts  to get a public hearing or in  some way bring out the facts  on the 500,000 volt line. Joe  was first class.  Yet I see in my interview I  said "the star witness" was  the geneticist, Dr. Shearer.  Why? I guess she told us  things most of us didnt know.  " Maybe I was doubly impressed from hearing Dr.  Shearer twice - once at lunch  before the court appearance  and again in court. And,  here's a tip: If yon are ever  going to listen to a scientist  (ell about poisons, don't sit  In front of a plate of liver and  onions.  Joe Harrison, being an  Area Representative is such a  thankless job that I just had to  write and say - you were a  "star witness" tool  P.S. To supporters interested in "what comes next."  We'll pay the $800 in fines,  the lawyers' fees and sundries. Then if there is no more  litigation we'll channel our  efforts and whatever money  into an organization which is  forming.  It promises to be useful - a  "watchdog" body. It will work  with existing organizations to  study energy in B.C., hiring  good lawyers at the beginnings of projects instead of the  middle. We realize we should  have done that with the  Cheekye-Dunsmuir.  We would like first-hand  information on the progress of  Cheekye-Dunsmuir construction anywhere along its  length. If you wish to help, call  883-2434.  Sincerely,  Iris Griffith  Cooper's Green for sale  Editor:  Who needs III  I wonder how many people  noticed the ad in the Vancouver Sun which offered for  sale a piece of land known  locally as Coopers Green.  The piece of property was  described in full detail and the  suggested usage for the  property was that it would be  an ideal location for an eighty-  room hotel I  Not only that - the agent  who recommended this usage  actually is a resident of the  area I Not actually located  close enough to the green to  be personally affected by such  a happening, but still a local  resident. And the asking  price? A mere million and a  halfbucksl  It wasn't many months  ago that the value of that  property was somewhere in  the region of just over a  hundred thousand, but when  the Lieutenant Governor in  his wisdom decided that the  public piece of road should  be sold to the owners for  eleven thousand dollars it  then became automatic'that  the value would jump sky  high.  Well - we can't say we  didn't warn you I I guess a  special word of thanks is due  to Mr. Lee who went to  bat for the owners in this  matter.  Thanks a lot Mr. L.  Redrooffs Ratepayer  Foreshore lease protested  Ed. note:- A copy of this letter  was given to the Coast News  for publication.  Hon. James Chabot,  Minister   of   Lands,    Parks  and Housing,  Province of British Columbia,  Victoria, B.C.  Re: T.D.C. Bulger and  Mae G. Bulger, Foreshore of Subdivision C,  Block 9, of Lot 1316,  Group 1, Plan 6630  N.W.D. Roberts Creek  B.C. (copy attached)  Dear Sir:  I would like to draw your  attention to the above noted  application for a foreshore  lease asking for:  (1) .42 hectares or approximately 1.25 Acres  water lot in the Gulf of  Georgia  (2) for their privacy and  (3) to  launch  a  boat,  and set a mooring buoy.  I feel when private individuals and/or corporations  start applying for foreshore  leases aimed at denying the  rights of other citizens to walk  on and use beaches in this  Province some action needs to  be taken. This is a total disregard of rights and feelings  of other private citizens in  the areas concerned and can  only lead to serious confrontations in the future.  This is not the first time  that this type of grievance has  had to be brought to your  attention. It is about time the  government and your department came out with a policy  statement that will guard  against this type of erosion of  our and our children's rights  to the enjoyment of all the  beaches in this Province.  Yours truly,  B. Mulligan  New name for festival suggested  Editor:  . The days of Ihe Sunshine  Coast Music Festival are  approaching, so now is the time  to consider changes in the  name, ajudicators and awards.  Shouldn't ihe festival's name  encompass all the participating  classes'.'  ��� A few suggestions: "The  Sunshine Coast Performing  Arts Festival"; "The Sunshine  Coast Fine Arts Festival";  "Sunshine Coast Performance  Festival" or even "Sunshine  Coast Festival".  As a drama participant, it is  annoying to fill out entry forms  that read "Sunshine Coast  Music Festival". Even more  annoying is receiving awards  that are engraved with "Sunshine Coast Music Festival". A  name with wider scope would  be more appropriate.  This year's Drama ajudi-  cator will have served 4 consecutive years. Gay Scriver was  fine, but receiving the same  advice each year doesn't allow  for growth. A different ajudi-  cator's view would aid this  year's drama class. There are  many qualified people to  choose from here in B.C.  Although of lesser impor  tance, a final change for this 8th  Annual Fine Arts Festival,  might be a new style of award  certificate. As a participant in  each of the 8 years (and I've got  the same old certificates as  proof) what I've written is  valid. I ask the committee to  consider these changes for the  8th annual "Sunshine Coast  Fine Arts Festival".  Your very sincerely,  Donard Mac Kenzie  6,000 daffodils sold  EUTC  TRAVEL  NcwNunker   .  ���tt-issa  F.ditor;  1 would like on behalf of the  local Unit of the Canadian  Cancer Society lo express our  gratitude lo all who participated in our annual Daffodil Sale  on March 13th. We thank the  Coast News for its assistance in  publicizing this event, and the  ladies of the Eastern Star for  the indispensible part they  played by running the stalls in  the shopping centres, and other  people who helped in various  ways. We are grateful to the  management of the shopping  malls in Gibsons, Sechelt and  Madeira Park for their ready  cooperation, and to the business people of the area who  supported this event by their  generous purchases of flowers.  In less than two hours 6000  daffodils were sold, and we  regret that there were none left  for sale, in the afternoon. Next  year we hope to provide more.  Over $600 were obtained to  send to the head office in  Vancouver to promote the  work of the Canadian Cancer  Society.

Without  this help, Carlalea would not  have been able to continue  with her therapy.  Gratefully appreciated.  Clark and Corey-Anne Dougall  Williams  shafted  Editor:  At long last our Honourable  Attorney-General Allan Williams has received a well-  deserved shafting. The editorial  printed in the Vancouver Sun,  March 20, 1981, entitled 'Speedy Gonzales, is the source of  this shafting'.  For many months 1 and  many other B.C. citizens  watched with disgust the antics  of the Socred leaders and their  minions trying to cover up the  Forged Letters���Dirty Trick.  We witnessed their phoney  'attempts' to track down the  culprits.  This went on for five months,  but note: "The dazzling speed  with which the Attorney-  General dispatched the latest  forged letter caper���why, the  story had barely broken before  it was game over and Mr.  Williams was able to stamp  "case solved" on the file." Has  there ever been a more blatant  case of discrimination!  But as the editorial continues: "Maybe we're comparing apples and oranges. The  original forged letters were  aimed at the NDP. But the  latest letter, bearing the forged  signature of Finance Minister  Hugh Curtis and provincial  coal czar Ron Basford, appeared to be aimed at the  (Socred) government." So this  is Justice? It seems we have a  special kind in B.C.  The 'dirty tricks' scandal,  plus many more like it just  won't stay hurried. The smell  will always linger on.  Sincerely.  W.J. MacDonald  P.O.

I figure  he'd scare hell out ofthe rather  timid subterraneans who inhabit Skeet's Castle and don't rise  lo the bait.  Ihe eround on Goatfoot  Mountain grows progressively  worse as we tough out way  across it. We are working the  far Mile of an enormous gully  and the yarding cables are  strung out over fifteen hundred  feet. At the back end of this  sprawling setting, the last  shoulder of the mountain rears  sheerly and there is an enormous rockslide. At one point,  there are no stumps whatsoever  on which to hang our roadline  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  block. We are forced to reach a  hundred feet back up the slide  and make our tailhold on a big  .standing cedar that either  withstood Ihe avalanche or  burrowed up through il.

One fateful turn, my electric  belt-whistle fails to blow the  stop-signal. Unchecked, the  heavy rigging goes rattling past  us and crashes into the block.  I'crhaps the tree has been  weakened by the rockfall. In  any event, the strain Is too  much for it and it comes  toppling slowly and horrifyingly over, kicking free several  big boulders as it falls.

They come can-  nonballing down and one huge  rock almosts clobbers Big Bart.  "Dammit. I make too good a  target!" he declares, seemingly  unruffled. We set about the  knotty lask of cleaning up the  mess and getting the show  operational again. Thus it goes  on dangerous Goatfoot Mountain.  That weekend, I throw on  my street-clothes and head for  the city to pursue my other life.  There is a delapidated school-  bus parked outside Skeet's  unconventional premises. It  bears Ontario license-plates.  Apparently, there are new  arrivals.  A party is in progress. There  is a plethora of wine and beer  and a scattering of less-  orthodox intoxicants. Donovan is chanting the cryptic  words of Sunny Goodge Street  on the stereo. All the regulars  are present and there are  several new faces. Skeet introduces me to this latest clutch of  wanderers. There are six of  them; two girls and a guy from  Montreal and two guys and a  girl from Toronto. The last  mentioned is a small blonde girl  with soft brown eyes. Her name  is Jill Craigmont and she is not  especially pretty but something  about her stirs more than a  passing interest in me.  It is part physical attraction  and part something else. I just  have an overwhelming urge to  know her. But I assume one of  the other bus-people must be  her old man so I keep my  distance at first.  Then, unbelievably, she  comes over to me. "Skeet was  telling me you write poetry,"  she says. She has the breathless,  guileless voice of a little girl.  Her big eyes gaze frankly into  mine.  It is like the answer to an  unspoken wish and I am taken  aback for a second. "Well,  yeah, I fool around with it," 1  mutter in a confusion of  embarrassment and joy.  "Me too," she says magically  and suddenly, we are sitting  together on a couch, nattering  away like old friends.  Jill is a dropped-out English  major, the youngest daughter  of a wealthy Toronto family.  She is an authentic runaway,  on the lam from a strict and  overly possessive mother.  "Hell, she used to follow me  down to Yorkville to find out  what I was up to. RealU  freaked all my friends. I just  couldn't hack her paranoia  anymore."  Jill is nineteen and looks  younger but she has already  gone through several lovers  and a string of wild adventures  "I ran away once before. Madi  it across the line and went down  to Greenwich Village. I met  Phil Ochs, the folk-singer and  we lived together for a couple  of months. He introduced me  to all kinds of heavy people:  Dave Van Ronk, Fred Neil  even Bobby Dylan. He's a  really neat guy, Phil. He set a  couple of my poems to music.  Then my damn mother put a  skip-tracer on me and got me  shipped back to Canada. It was  really a downer. She started  watching me like a hawk after  that."  She rambles on breathlessly  about her underground experiences. "One time when the  Beatles were in Toronto, my  girl-friend and 1 sneaked backstage and hid in their dressing-  room. 1 even got to say a few  words to John Lennon before  they threw us out. I was a real  groupie in those days."  Jill talks as though she is  years older than she is but I find  her utterly bewitching. I finally  manage to steer the talk around  to her present romantic status.  "I'm not with anybody right  now," she declares, amazingly.  "I started out with Carl over  there" ��� she indicates a thin,  dark kid - "but we had a big  hassle in Alberta and we're not  together anymore."  It is all too good to be true. 1  am insanely falling in love with  her and we have only just met.  The almost seventeen years  that separate us don't seem to  matter in the first flood of  infatuation. Maybe the wine is  clouding my judgement but the  age-gap seems of trifling significance. Hell, we're both poets.  What more do we need? Later,  I essay a couple of noisy songs  with the Fallons. Turns out  that Jill is a devout blues-fan  too. By theend ofthe evening. I  have talked her into coming  back to Sully's Cove with me,  stressing that it is a great place  to write. 1 can barely believe  this unscheduled turn of events.  To be continued.

It was considered one  of the best of the 1978 Toronto  Festival of Festivals. It will be  shown April 2.

R.C  Tunle Muisle, Glbsom  warn A good related job"?  ff the   shelf  by John Moore  A Statistics Canada report  released last week indicates  that a large number of this  country's college and university graduates wind up in  jobs unrelated to their educational studies. The report  states that most students  regret their choice of subjects  and want studies directly  related to the labour market.  According to an account of  the report in last Wednesday's  Vancouver Sun, "the days of  education for education's sake  are over as far as students  are concerned".  Oddly enough, the account  carried in the Sun, a Canadian  Press wire service story out of  Ottawa, mentions only two  actual statistics; that women  earn approximately 9% less  than men over all and that a  25% disparity exists between  the wages of male and female  employees of the federal  government. Maybe it's only  me. I realize that reading a  report,, or even a report of a  report, studded with statistics  is about as exciting as settling  into your favourite chair with a  plumbing catalogue.  Still, it does seem a little  weird for Statistics Canada to  collect and prepare five years  worth of essentially mathematical data then have it  reduced to less than a dozen  paragraphs that are truly  stunning in their vagueness  and generality. What follows  is. only one of dozens of  possible pearls:  "Generally, they want to  study fields that will help  them land a good related job  with decent wages and a fair  level of personal day-to-day  satisfaction".  1 think I love that one  because the mercifully anonymous reporter even began the  sentence with the word  "generally". He and his  editor may now be washing  dishes for a living. Let's  hope it's for "decent wages  and a fair level of personal  day-to-day satisfaction".  Alright, enough quibbling.  Aside from the fact that the  sentence quoted is so loaded  with undefined, and possibly  undefinable, terms as to be  completely meaningless, we  somehow feel that we know  what the reporter is getting  at and, in fact, we do, A few  RDPBoohsrore  Fine Booka  See our ad  aa the Community  hours spent in any university  cafeteria will confirm the  impression conveyed, however ineptly, by the hapless  reporter.  It may also give rise to an  even more alarming impression; that the reporter  may not be so hapless after  all and that the vacuous  cliche-ridden sentence quoted  above is a perfectly accurate  reflection, not of the mind  of the reporter, but of the  minds of most university  students and graduates at the  present time.  In a short four years, two at  Cap College and two at the  University of British Columbia, I was repeatedly astounded by the number of my  fellow students who had not  the slightest idea what they  wanted to do but who studiously forged ahead, jumping  through one academic hoop  after another, with an absolute  faith that when they graduated Bachelor of Somethingor-  other they would be assured  of "a good related job with  decent wages and a fair  level of personal day-to-day  satisfaction".  By that they appeared to  mean a job that was interesting to them personally, not  routine or tedious, at which  you could wear the clothing of  your choice, with a salary  starting between $20,000 and  $30,000 per year and from  which you could come home  and be assured of a carefree  night's sleep.  The painful truth is that  most students regard a college  certificate or university degree  like a "Chance" card in  Monopoly that allows you to  Get Out of Jail Free. Most of  them are killing time, at the  expense of their parents or of  a government that is all too  willing to lend them money to  stay in the educational system  and off the unemployment  rolls. If 75% of the first year  college and university students in this country went  straight into the labour force  instead of onto campus the  shock wave would probably  . bring down the government.  Certainly it may be argued  that the structure of the educational system from high  school on up, with its emphasis on specialization and  constant pressure to narrow  the field of studies, "declare  Gibsons  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday .2 - 4 pm  Wednesday 2 - 4 pm  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9 pm  Saturday 2 - 4 pm  886-2130  ^���      v   a major" etc., fosters the  assumption by students that  all this work is "directed" to  some end. But the desire for  a job "related" to their  studies somehow fails to jibe  with their constant complaints  that the course material at  institutions of higher learning  consists of little more than a  series of tedious academic  hoops to be jumped through.  If you find your studies dull  and unprofitable, maybe you  are in the wrong classroom.  The argument that a course  of studies at university doesn 't  prepare you for life is full of  holes, on still another level.  The Statistics Canada report  says that "many graduates  still find in searching for their  jobs that it's not what you  know, but who you know "  Any student who has  four years at a university  and failed to notice the  enormous game of interdepartmental power politics,  the promotion of excellent  teachers into positions as  inefficient bureaucrats, the  jockeying for important chairmanships and deanships, and  the importance of cultivating  the "right" professors as  faculty and thesis advisors,  has been in a coma. It's sad to  say, but a four to six year  course of studies at university  is perfect preparation for life  as a junior executive for a  large corporation.  Where was I? Oh yes,  books. There may be a lesson  in the fact that four years of  college or university will give  you one thing, a large collection of really marvellous  books that you'll have plenty  of time to read after you  graduate. All for now.  library  New books for adults at the  Gibsons Public Library this  month include, in the non-  fiction shelves, Terror in the  Starboard Seat by Dave  Mcintosh, Measure of the  Year by Roderick L.

Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Flight Deck: Memoirs of an Airline Pilot by George Lothian,  McGraw-Hill Ryerson c 1979, $16.95  I know nothing about flying airplanes despite many hours of  flight time as a passenger. George Lothian's account of the early  days of Trans-Canada Airlines makes for fascinating reading. The  man puts life into a history which is full of close calls, good  fellowship and an interest in the best of service.  All good tales begin at the beginning and, fortunately, George  was there in the early days of commercial flight. He started out  green as a kid who wanted to graduate from the wooden World  War One fighter plane in his back yard, to the real thing. Even the  disaster which took the life of his flying teacher in mid-training did  not stop him. He went on to become one of the first pilots in the  growing national airline. Furthermore, he married one of its first  stewardesses.  Lothian's book drops more names than paratroopers, and  many of those connected with the fledgling Aero Club of B.C. will  know them. TCA, as it was called in those days, had an  honourable list of war heroes on its roster. To these people, flying  was second nature, not to mention, instinctive. George describes  the sixth sense that top pilots have which often causes them to  anticipate a problem or find their way out of one.  Contents are arranged in chronological order. There is a nice  historical record in the back of the book. My only criticism, and it  is one which can be remedied in future editions, is the lack of an  index. Perhaps Lothian did not consider that his book was  reference material. Would that more informational records were  as interesting to read!  A mid-section of photographs calls up romantic visions of  camaraderie and tale-telling sessions around the bar with the  Wiffenpoof song in the background. There are 1929 biplanes,  pictures of the honourable and now venerable crews. It is hard to  believe that it was not that many decades ago that passengers had  to wear oxygen masks during flights, and ominously stewardesses  were nurses.  For truly readable history about one of the forces that shaped  the country, try this delightful book by George Lothian.

The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission has come  up with what should prove to  be a very popular activity in  which the whole family can  participate. Starting on the  Thursday of April 23rd at the  Welcome Beach Hall, the  class will be open to children  up to and including grade  three. The children must be  accompanied by an adult and  it is hoped that those adults  will join in the gymnastics.  Exercise is good, no matter  what age you are. The time  will be from 2:45 till 3:45 p.m.,  the fee is ten dollars per  family for ten sessions.  The children will be dropped  off the school bus at the hall  straight after school, provided  that the driver be given a  note each week to this effect.  Those who wish to register for  this very promising program  should call Diana Gruner at  885-2978.  Because ofthe spring break  the next Recreation meeting  will be held a week earlier  than usual, April 6th at the  Wickwire home 7:30 p.m.  Phone 885-9750.  A good turnout is hoped for  as it is coming along towards  time when discussions will be  taking place regarding the  summer Country Fair. This  Fair is a joint effort between  the Recreation Commission  and the Welcome Beach  Community Association. The  suggestion was made that for  this year the Recreation group  may like to do it alone, but  they decided that as it is  always a joint effort they  would prefer it to continue as  such. It is actually the one  occasion of the year when the  two groups get together, and  it is usually lots of fun for  everyone.  It would be nice if we could  get some new ideas for booths  and events for this summer's  fair. Get the thinking caps on  folks I  Happy St. Patrick's night:  A good night was had by  all at the Welcome Beach  Community Hall last Saturday  when the occasion was duly  celebrated in the traditional  manner with dancing and  singing. The music for the  evening was a variety of Irish  and you name itl Some local  musicians presented a program of traditional Irish airs  played on violin, concertina  and tin whistle. Katie Anger-  meyer of Redrooffs on violin  was accompanied by Dan  Bowman in the playing of  some good toe-tapping jigs  along with some of the more  nostalgic sad airs. The twosome played well together and  the audience was most appreciative of these good people  giving of their time and talents  to entertain. The evening  continued with dancing to  records which ranged from the  thirties right up to date, as  well as a few vocal solos  from some of the talented  folks in the group.  Highlights of the vocal part  of the evening was a solo sung  in Norwegian by the mother of  Tor Orre of Redrooffs who, in  her 87th year can still carry a  tune to perfection. She was  the star of the evening in more  ways than one. You should  have seen her do the polka!  Paul Hansen played the accordion as a change from the  organ for this evening and  joining him was his friend  Joe Hampton who was visiting  from Vancouver and who  played a marvellous banjo. In  all, it was a really happy  evening.  There was another most  enjoyable evening at the Hall  on Thursday when some forty  people were treated to a  showing of slides of the  Lawsons' travels.  Hospital Auilllary:  A reminder to members and  to those of you who would care  to join this group of ladies who  keep busy doing work towards  patient comfort, that the  regular monthly meeting will  be on Monday, April 6th at  Welcome Beach Hall at 8 p.m.  A reminder too about getting  your plants in containers for  the plant sale on April 18th.  If you wish any advice or help  in deciding what you should  be transplanting or thinning  out you could give Jean Scott  a call and she would be happy  to advise.  The Humming Birds.  There have been several  calls following last week's  mention of the first humming  bird of the season. One man  called to say that he had been  feeding one all winter long. I  wonder how many people  keep on feeding them all  summer long. This is really  not a good idea because they  should really be heading south  with all the rest of the birds in  late summer. One should  really take in their feeders in  early July so that the humming birds can fend for themselves because there are  plenty of pollens around by  then. If they are not encouraged to the feeders they  will then follow their natural  instinct and go where they  should be going.  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^      - Joan Huestis Fosler photo  By-law Enforcement Officer A.E.

There's no problem getting  support for Roberts Creek  Daze when the time comes -  the Daze is one of the most  popular of the local celebrations. It's a real community  effort and everybody joins in  on the fun.  But it takes a lot of planning  to make it a success and tKat  usually falls on the shoulders  of a few, who are consequently  burned out after one Daze and  reluctant to take on the responsibility of the next one.  That's why we need lots of  people to help organize the  activities, share the workload  and make it fun for everyone  concerned.  So don't wait until the last  minute to ask if you can help.  Come to the Daze meeting at  the Hall tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7:30 with your  ideas and sign up for a job.  On the agenda.  In an attempt to keep  meetings short and to the  point, the Community Association is introducing a new  procedure: all matters to be  discussed must be entered on  an agenda before the meeting.  Matters not on the agenda will  be discussed only if the open  meeting votes to discuss  them.  If you wish to have an item  added to the agenda phone  Gail Cromie at 885-3469 or  Dennis Davison at 885-2101  before the monthly meeting.  The next meeting is Wednesday, April 15.  Play Ball.

It  was built and owned by  Charlie Wise and the child-  rens' names were Donald,  Richard, Gene and Sissy.  They were raised mostly on  Eagle Brand Milk at 8* for a  tall tin, because it was a  "good   keeper".

"We at Lord Jlm'e  Look Forward to Seeing Yon"  Local group to produce rock opera  Coast News, March 31, 1981  by Alan Kamuzyn  On Saturday evening, May  30th, the Gibsons Soundwaves  Society will present its premier performance of the rock  opera Jesus Christ Superstar.  "Soundwaves", a local organization formed this year for  the purpose of performing  musical theatre and concerts,  consists of 32 singers and 16  instrumentalists. The group  was put together by Gibsons'  own Lyn Vernon who is also  the show's producer.  The director of the show is  no stranger to Gibsons either.  Lloyd Burritt was raised here  and has blossomed into a  rather well-known B.C. composer. He presently teaches  music at Argyle High School  in North Vancouver and produces various musicals annually.  The conductor is alio a  music teacher who has conducted with the North Shore  Light Opera Society, the  Theatre Guild in Bellingham  and numerous high school  musicals. His hame is Joe  Berarducci.  Susan Ross will be coming  over to handle the technical  aspects of the show. This very  talented woman was stage  manager for the Vancouver  Opera and the Canadian  Opera Company; general manager of the Regina Dance  Theatre and is presently  employed by the Vancouver  Symphony Orchestra.  Another very talented woman is costume designer  Margaret Ryan, Miss Ryan  has spent four years with the  Vancouver Opera and seven  years with the Vancouver  Playhouse Theatre. She also  designed costumes for the  BCTV series "Story Theatre".  If you think that's talent,  wait until you see the cast I!  Don't be surprised if you  notice a few familiar faces up  there on the stage. There is  still room, however, for a few  male singers. Anyone interested may call me at  886-9145. Rehearsals are now  underway.  Residents of the area are  invited to a semi-sneak preview on Saturday, April 11th.  at the Gibsons Mall.The choir  will be doing a fund raising  performance and will sing a  number or two from the  production. Tickets for the  actual show are five dollars  and will be on sale soon. There  will be four showings in all,  Saturday, May 30, Sunday  May 31st (matinee), Friday  and Saturday, June Sth and  6th.

Abe Jeffries and his family  lived in Princess Louisa Inlet  on the Indian Camp Grounds,  which is now the Malibu golf  course. In those days people  travelled from Sechelt to this  area and Deserted Bay to  raise vegetables in the summer; potatoes, cabbage, carrots and corn, which sold for  a dollar per hundred pounds.  They sun-dried blueberries,  salal and blackberries, apples,  prunes, fish and venison.  They cold-smoked all the  species of salmon except  humpies and collected these  fish from "the Skawika" and  Deserted River. The gardeners were "Captain" Joe  Dixon, John Wilson and a lady  named Agnes, who also  served as midwife. The  nearest doctor was in Vancouver, so tobacco was the  cure for most mishaps and  snuff was used for toothaches.  The Egmont smorgasbord  is coming up on April 11.  One of the prizes for the raffle  is a lovely nightgown donated  by Myrtle Dalton of Sechelt,  who was one of our convenors  for several years.  We should have had an  "Early Spring on the Coast  Contest" this year. Maybe  Egmont didn't have wild  strawberries in February, as  Robi Peters says Dave Stig-  litz did, but my neighbour  Gene said he heard someone  talking about seeing a hummingbird on March 17 on Redrooffs Road, then added that  he saw one in his yard on the  16th.

Five aims have been  accepted. The first is the education of the public and a  change in attitude toward the  disabled. The second is the  prevention of disabilities. The  third is the improvement of  the quality of life of the  disabled through special measures such as better access  to transportation and , public  buildings. The fourth is direct  help to the disabled to assist  their social and personal  adjustment. The fifth is  expansion of employment  opportunities for disabled  persons.  What is a disability? The  Oxford Dictionary defines it as  a thing or lack that prevents  one's doing something, legal  disqualification; physical incapacity caused by injury  or disease. A person who has  lost his sight, or hearing, or  lost a limb, or who is wracked  I  Al Wagner  Al Wagner  Invites you  to join  Big  Brothers  A service of friendship freely given by  men, to boys without  fathers.  For Information  886-2615  885-5664  with arthritis or incapacitated  by such a condition as multiple  sclerosis is disabled. Traditionally, a disabled person  has been regarded as one who  once was normal physically,  and now is not. Modern usage  has   broadened   the   term.  The government of British  Columbia has moved in to help  make the provincial program a success by allocating  $3,000,000 for the cause.  Douglas L. Mowatt of Vancouver, executive director of  the B.C. Division of the  Canadian Paraplegic Association, has been named B.C.  Director of the IYDP. A  committee will be named soon  to include representatives of  disabled groups and of government ministries concerned with social services.  Wayne Desharnais, program.  superintendent of special education for the B.C. Ministry  of Education is the liaison  officer between the new  committee and his Ministry.  Anyone wanting information  on the International Year of  Disabled Persons in British  Columbia should contact the  IYDP office, Ministry of  Education, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C., V8V  1X4.  It is highly unlikely that  children will directly benefit  from this new program. There  is a feeling abroad that our  children are being very well  cared for, in schools, with the  support of the Ministries of  Human Resources and Health.  Are they? What is the evidence?  The Year of the Child came  and went. What was accomplished? What were the  visible and lasting gains?  Did governments institute  hot-lunch programs to assist  in the improvement of young  Canada's nutrition? Was a  school free milk program even  discussed? Did pregnant mothers receive prenatal family  allowance in order to eat  adequately for two? Did child  abuse lessen? Was child  pornography stopped? Was  there a media campaign to  stress the importance of our  children to the future of our  country?  The disability that the Year  of the Child did not deal with,  and one the Year of the Disabled will not is the root cause  of mental and physical illnesses, much juvenile delinquency, and school failure.  It has been reported that, in  B.C. alone, there are 22,000  single parents on social  assistance, with some 60,000  children in Care. Counting the  "working poor" who never  have sufficient money for their  basic needs, there are some  110,000 poor- children in  British Columbia. These children are being housed, fed and  clothed minimally and meanly. Serious malnutrition may  be occurring among this population through the escalating  cost of good food, especially  proteins such as milk, eggs,  fish and meat.  The malnourished child is  educationally disabled. He has  trouble paying attention; he  cannot remember; he may be  irritable and restless; he may  yawn a lot or fall asleep in  class. He probably doesn't  laugh much, and may be  indifferent to his teacher's  efforts to interest him. He may  weep when provoked; he may  be aggressive. All the food he  may eat at a later date will not  build the brain and brawn  that society should have  supplied him with through  good nutrition when he was  very young.  Canada lags far behind  most civilized countries in  overseeing the nutrition of its  growing children. Great Britain instituted hot lunch  programs following World  War II. American schools  serve hot lunches. We leave  our kids to the pop and chip  machines, let them fill up on  junk foods which do not  satisfy their body hunger for  real food.  A prevention of disability  program could only begin with  the infant set, and would make  sense. The IYDP plan will only  dispense charity to some  needy persons and brighten  up many lives for a brief  period of time. It will distract  attention from the root problem, man-made poverty in the  midst of plenty and shortsighted neglect of the basic  needs of children.  Mayor Bud Koch of Sechelt draws tht winning ticket in the draw  held last week on behalf of Elphie grads. The prize was a Chevette  Scooter donated by Koch's Sunshine GM Motors. The winning  ticket was held by Chris Taylor of Gibsons. The grads thank all  who participated.  Careers Day  at Elphie  On Thursday, April 2nd,  1981, a Careers Fair will be  held at Elphinstone Secondary  School in Gibsons. The Careers  Fair will start at 9:15 am. and  end at 12:15 pm. Linda Giza.  counsellor at Elphinstone has  arranged a wide range of  presentations so that students  and interested members of the  community can explore vocational, technical and professional occupations.  In recognition of the guest  speakers' contributions and  involvement, the School District is providing a luncheon at  which Mr. John Denley, District Superintendent of  Schools, will speak.  For more information about  the Careers Fair, please telephone Elphinstone School at  886-2204.  The donation is time  "It's not donations we need  the most," says Al Wagner for.  the Big Brothers organization  on the coast. "It's something  money can't buy, something  more special, your time."  "We have a waiting list of  boys who need someone to fill  the gap of the missing male  figure. Someone to do things  with, someone to call when  they need to talk and, especially, a man to look up to  as an example instead of the  tough guy out on the street,"  explains Wagner.  Most of the boys come from  broken homes and single  parent families. Big Brothers  won't compete with the boy's  father, though. "We are  selective that way, we only  choose those who have had no  male influence for some  time," said Wagner.  Potential Big Brothers are  carefully screened and placed  with care by Drew McKee of  the school board, who is the  main work-horse ofthe organization.  Another active member is  the principal of Roberts Creek  school, Bob Wetmore.  "There is a shortage of  Big Brothers," explains Wagner, "we receive requests  from mothers in trauma and in  great need of the male figure.  But the screening process  takes time and unfortunately  we don't have volunteers lined  up and just waiting."  Wagner says that a "re  lationship" between a Big  Brother and a little brother  can be a deterrent to crime  as well as possibly leading to  lifelong friendship. Wagner,  who himself has been a Big  Brother until his boy moved  away, says he still is in contact  with him.  "It's just a matter of a few  hours a week donated to those  who are less fortunate than  those of us who have had a  good deal out of life. It's a  giving thing."  For a boy or adolescent, a  Big Brother is someone to  spend an afternoon with,  someone to call when you  need to talk and it's hard to  talk to mother, a man to look  up to for guidance.  And sometimes, it's as easy  and uncomplicated as sharing  a silence, just fishing.  For more information, call  Al Wagner, 886-2615 or  885-5664.  Poster contest  ATTENTION!

Many women not only wish  to be employed, but must work  to support, or to implement the  support of their families.  Women from native communities, sole support mothers,  senior high school girls as well  as women wanting to change  careers, because of limited  skills, are often obliged to  remain at minimal wages with  little, or no hope of advancement.  The purpose of the conference is to bring together  those women who wish to  enter, re-enter or grow within  the work force, who need  increased skills, and those  women who. recognizing ihis  need, arc committed to the task  of improving conditions for  women in the job market.  In both the Ministry of  Labour and Canada Employment women head the Departments of Women's affairs. It is  their responsibility to press for  Ihe changes which will create  more, and better, opportunities  for women who work outside  the home. But it is the responsibility of the women of this  community to provide solid  evidence of the specific needs of  the women of this community.  It is expecled thai the subject  matter will encourage a large  number of women to attend  this two day conference. Every  woman will have the opportunity to express her views  when, during the most vital  session, small groups will be  able to pin-point essential  concerns. Summaries, from  which the recommendations  will evolve, will be sent lo the  various ministries, educational  institutions and lo each participant.

Each of us usually takes on a new task  with zeal and vigourl  It also brought to mind the changing scene in our meat  market. The new meat manager, Bill Grant, has been with us  for a month now and seems to be well received by both  customers and staff. He is trying a few things a bit different and  they are going over well.  Get to know Bill, he is most obliging and will cut to suit your  personal needs. Many of our regular patrons, when wanting  something out of the ordinary will phone and speak to the  butcher personally. We invite you to do so.  Another addition to the staff of our meat market is my son  Keith who has just completed a six-month meat cutting and  merchandising course. At one time, this was a year long  course, reduced to eight and then to six months. With this start,  together with his long-standing interest in Meats, he should be  a good assistant to Bill whose experience will be of benefit to  Keith as well.

Boys  Wear  Tribute to  a thoroughbred  Chief Mountain   A name only you could fill. 1 can see you now, trotting  carefully round and round. Children bouncing on your  back; you taught them to ride, to be gentle, to respect. Or  your cunning, blind speed as you won by length and seconds  the speed jumping last fall. The crowd was amazed to learn  you were 25 years old.  You showed them and you showed all of us mere humans  who knew you, the wisdom that only time brings and the  kindness that can only come from real power.  You roamed my unfenced acres freely, never taking  advantage but with enough mischief to keep me fondly  amused. You won my respect. I found in you a trusted friend  and a willing partner. Despite your years your heart was  young.  Even at the end you held your shattered leg with dignity  and I saw courage and resignation in your brown, soft eyes.  The rose-bush blooms over your grave to remind us of  your years of dedicated service. Racehorse, cutting-horse,  jumper, field hunter and teacher of many.

II nder the able chairmanship  of Fred Holland, the Entertainment Committee has decided this popular programme  should be resurrected.  One of the best evenings and  certainly considered by many  js the best presentation ofthe  last series was that given by  Kay Preece of the Canadian  Outward Bound Mountain  School in Keremeos and we are  delighted to be able to bring the  new Associate Director, Mr.  John Binsted back again and  we can guarantee an interesting  and thought-provoking evening suitable for young and old  alike.  Ihe Outward Bound Mountain School is not what you  would consider the ordinary  run of the mill school. For one  thing it is open to all ages. If  someone thinks they can do  what is asked of them then go  ahead and do it. In a nutshell  this represents the policy ofthe  school. Students are put in all  kinds of situations designed to  test themselves physically and  their ability to work with  others. They are tested mentally too because there are  occasions when they have to  put complete trust in the other  fellow in order to survive.  Courses are run throughout  the year and are for the most  part  co-ed.   Certain  of the  courses are designed for the  younger generation 14-16, and  some go to the other extreme,  25 years and older but most of  them are standard courses  taking people from 17 and up.  In length they range from eight  days for a special course such as  ski mountaineering to three  weeks for a regular summer  course. Last year over 600  students experienced Outward  Bound and over the years quite  a number of Sunshine Coast  residents have taken part in  these courses. I doubt whether  any of them would have any  words of regret and more than  likely look back on it as one of  the highlights of their lives.  Come to think, it would be nice  if some of these ex-students  could make it to this meeting.  These words of a 18 year old  student sum up things pretty  well, "I expected to overcome  fear, but didn't���I just knew  how to handle it better. I know  now that part of me that says  'go for it' is capable and needs  to be given the chance because I  can trust in my own ability.''  We are looking forward to  having Mr. Binsted come along  and tell us what O.B. is all  about and will bring along  slides and/ or film to illustrate  his talk. ���  The date is Wednesday April  8 at 7:00 pm. at the Gibsons  Wildlife Club on Highway 101  right opposite the cemetery.  We are sure you will not be  disappointed. Bring along the  youngsters too. This is very  much a family programme and,  best of all, it's free.

Kennett  If there was anyone in this  world who did nothing but  good, one of those chosen  would, have to be Ellen Cook,  almost an eternal resident of  the family acreage on the North  Road outside Gibsons.  An only daughter of Finnish  parents, Ellen Kayto was born  on the North Road stump  ranch about the turn of the  century as were others of the  same heritage; the Wirens, the  Kullanders, the Willanders, the  Heinos, the Hentsas.the Lattas  and so on.  Indeed, they were all spirited  and hard working people who  could put their hands to  anything agricultural as well as  building and using their wondrous workings with old  growth cedar.  As a boy entering my teens  my uppermost recollection of  Mrs. Cook was that she was  ever at her kitchen door-  begging us kids who knocked  around with her son Clarence  to come and get fresh buns or  bread or whatever happened to  be coming from her oven at the  time. In those hungry thirties  for boys in our teens, food was  paramount in our minds, so we  required little coaxing.

Invariably, on a hot summer  Sunday, Mrs. Cook would  gather us kids together and  with a large picnic basket we  would pile into their milk truck  and head down to Lucy Smith's  beach beside that proverbial  rock of ages that sits miraculously alone next to an  overflowing fresh spring on  that fine beach just north of the  ferry dock. ,  At corn husking time us  North Road kids would fire up  the little stove in Mrs. Cook's  childhood playhouse which her  father had built for her and  stuff ourselves with fresh corn  on the cob liberally painted in  fresh churned butter.  Throughout her years, Ellen  Cook has never seemed to have  anything but happiness written  all over her face, has never had  second thoughts about taking  less fortunates under her wing  where others might shy away.  In my eyes, Ellen Cook was and  is someone special.  Some years ago when her  father died, Mrs. Cook came  and asked me if 1 would be a  pallbearer at her father's  funeral, and without hesitation  I replied, "Mrs. Cook, 1 will be  very proud".  And so it was, we laid him to  rest at the foot of the mountain  thus then leaving his daughter  Ellen and her son Clarence to  carry on the Finlander's tradition of sharing and caring so  evident in her lifestyle.  Just two years ago, up north  on the fishing grounds near  Bella Bella, 1 asked Clarence  how his mother was and he  said, "Just fine and approaching her eighties". 1 asked him  what he was going to do with  that fine North Road property  in the years ahead and re  replied simply, "Probably leave  it to the grandchildren".'  Ellen Cook's title to the  North Road property chains  back many years, causing an  old lawyer friend of mine to  comment that it was one of the  oldest he had ever seen since  Lands Registry records began  seriously in 1905 in British  Columbia.  I could only comment that I  also agreed but had seen  another of similar vintage in  the name of Margaret Trot-  man, who us oldtimers knew  later as the legendary Maggie  LeFavre when she married  Blackie on the Reed Road.

The exercise  emerged as follows:  Report from R.C.C.  Overdue: Aircraft Cessna  172 (registration unknown).  L.K.P: At 19:30 hours, March  20/ 81, the aircraft was reported  inbound to Vancouver International Airport. E.T.A. 20:15  hours. There were two POB.  Course was 140 degrees via  Sechelt Inlet. Weather was  clear. There were no further  transmissions. Aircraft colour  was White with Red trim lines.  At 6:38 hours of March 21st  a full blown air-ground search  was put into operation. One  hour and thirty 'phone calls  later, Elphinstone Aero Clubhouse had been established as  Search Headquarters; Vera.  McAllister had changed hats  and become Searchmaster; her  Deputy Chrismas had become  Crew Chief; and backup staff  of June Mellis and Margaret  Connor had taken over telephone and radio duties.  Arthur McPhee was coordinating his ground search  crew with Fred Gazeley and  John Hind-Smith ofthe Wildlife Club, who are in charge of  rescue equipment.  Doc John Farrer had been  dispatched to Pitt Meadows in  his swift little Grumman two  place to pick up special radio  equipment for homing in on the  E.L.T. signal, if and when  located.  By 0930 hours the crash site  had been located by Doc John  and his navigator Audry Brou-  ghton; the information passed  on to Arthur McPhee and his  party; and the ground crew  were on their way into the  Carlson Lake area.  But the exercise was far from  over. None of this information  was passed on to other search  crews who were waiting to be  briefed by McAllister. The  object was to get as many crews  into the air as possible, to  assign them to a search area,  then correlate all the information turned in at the debriefing.  In all, seven flights were sent  out to assigned areas, which  included five pilots, seven  navigators, and twelve spotters. Although some technical  problems were encountered in  locating the 'cone of silence'  which would indicate the exact  location of the crash site, all  crews were found to have  centred on the "hot spot' which  would have put the ground  search party to within a few  hundred yards of the site.  The exercise was deemed as  being 'highly successful' from  an organizational and operational point of view, with  lessons learned that will save  much time and energy (not to  mention frayed nerves) in the  event of a real, live situation.  One of the reasons given by  Vera McAllister for the success, and the degree of autonomy, allowed the Sunshine  Coast area of PEP and PEAS  by RCC and Comox, is in  having an area co-ordinator  with the background experience is invaluable.  The same can be said for  Vera McAllister. As a highly  skilled Flying Instructor and  pilot, she has taught many of  our local pilots to fly. Her  knowledge of the area and  years of experience of flying  among the rock-filled clouds of  our B.C. coast, is also invaluable!  And last but not least, much  credit goes to the pilots who  h<v>>>X<%wXv.v>>:v.v.v.v.v.v.v.v.v.v.'

And to fellow  pilots who share duties as  navigators; to navigators who  share duties as spotters; and to  every one who has an interest  or future in aviation and offer  themselves as spotters.  The thought which must be  shared by all as a search and  resue is going on, from Air  Chief to Spotter, can only be;  "There, but for the Grace of  God, wait I"!

Quebec. On arriving in  the city, which 1 knew well, I  was in possession of only  a dollar or two so I headed for  the Seamen's Institute down  on the waterfront where I  knew I could get not only  cheap meals but a bed for the  night. I had only stayed there  a couple of days when I was  fortunate in finding a job on  one of the Canadian Steamship Line's boats, the SS Glen-  burnie, a grain carrier which  had just finished discharging  its cargo into the Montreal  elevators and was now heading back to Port Arthur or  Fort William for another load.  I was hired as a deckhand at  $40 per month, but not  knowing a "hawser" from a  "hatch cover" I only lasted a  day or so in that capacity when  I was ordered to report to the  engine room. I discovered I  was now a "coal passer" or  "trimmer". My duties were  to assist the firemen (I stayed  the hell out of their way) and,  at the change of shifts when  the fires had been trimmed, I  had to shovel the mountains  of hot ashes into a steam chute  to be blown overboard. This  was a frenzied operation  accompanied by much cursing  from my "superiors" if I took  too long and the steam gauges  dropped several points. It  was Hades down there and it  was a welcome relief when the  bunkers got low, at least I  could escape some of the heat  in them, although there was  no let-up in the shovelling of  the coal to keep the furnaces  going.  I was all set to "jump"  ship at the next port of call  when, once again, I was  shunted to another job. The  cook's helper had failed to  show up when we left Buffalo.  He had been seen roaring  drunk in one of the numerous  "cathouses" in that city and  was probably still there when  wc sailed. The cook was a  cranky old s.o.b. but working  in the galley was definitely  stayed with it till freeze up.  Back to the cabin in the late  fall of 1934. Montreal had  been an even harder place to  leave than my other Nemesis,  Hull, so once again I faced the  winter with very little money  in reserve, but I got by  somehow. I helped a farmer  butcher a pig, for which I  received some of the front  quarter and all of the entrail  meat and my friend Mogens  donated a sack of potatoes,  some beans and onions. I still  had my rifle and it provided  many a dinner. That winter we  had one of the worst blizzards  ever known in that part of  Ontario and there was no way  I could make it to the store,  even although I had snow-  shoes. At the time I was  extremely low on provisions  so I lived on potatoes for three  days. I had a little lard so  I fried them, baked them and  boiled them. When eventually  the storm blew itself out and 1  could get to the village, I recall  buying a tin of sardines and  eating them right in the store,  I was so hungry for something  other than a spud!  I might as well admit it right  now that the lonely winters in  the cabin were beginning to  pall on me. After all I was in  the prime of life - the twenties  and, although the spring,  summer and fall months were  exciting enough, I began to  find the winter days and  nights monotonous in the  extreme. While I had not as  yet developed "cabin fever",  I looked forward to the coming  of spring when I could once  more hit the road and explore  other places, meet my own  kind and, even if times were  tough, at least there was  something different to look  forward to and encounter each  passing day.  In the spring of 1935 I found  myself working for a farmer  out at Stirtsville, a small  village near Ottawa and it was  here I had another adventure,  one that could well have  proved my last. Herding  the cows home one evening  after a hard day at the haying,  1 found that one of them was  missing. Having located her in  a thicket, I was thumping her  along with the aid of a stick  when I sensed something  coming behind me at the  speed of an express train. I  turned but was too late. The  neighbour's Holstein bull had  broken down the fence and  joined our herd, mainly on  account of the missing cow I  was driving being in heat. He  hit me somewhere between  the shoulder blades and  knocked me on my face.  Time after time I struggled  to my feet only to be knocked  flat and, what was even worse,  he was goring me while I was  prostrate. Somehow or other  I managed to make it to the  fence where I found a hardwood stake and, fool that I  was, attempted to emulate  Montes the Matador or  assume the role of another El  Cordoba I When finally I was  forced to give up the unequal  contest and roll under the  fence I don't know who was in  worse shape, the bull or I.

Harbingers of  spring on the coast are the  skunk cabbage, salmon berry  blossoms and, to early residents, the oolichan.  Each spring, since prehistoric times, the oolichan,  the "break-fast" fish, has  come into certain rivers and  beaches to spawn. These runs  have meant a renewal of food,  in abundance, for birds,  animals, and man, along the  coast of British Columbia. The  Bella Coola Indians have  looked to the oolichan for the  end of a winter diet of dried  salmon and clams. Most  importantly, the runs have  meant a renewed supply of  oolichan oil, a very important  item in their diet, and a very  valuable currency of trade  with the tribes in the interior  of the country. This oolichan  oil because, unlike most fish  oils, it is solid at room temperatures,   was  called   grease.  This grease was carried in  cedar boxes by the "Carrier  Indians" along the "grease  trails" to the more remote  tribes of the interior.  The pale yellow grease  was used as we use butter or  margarine, it helped to make  the dried fish, meat and  berries more palatable. It was  also a good spring tonic  because of its laxative qualities.  The oolichan, quite often  spelled "eulachon", was also  called "candle fish" because,  when dried, the fish were used  by the Indians as torches or  candles. This species is a large  member of the smelt family  "Osmeridae" and is, to my  mind, the most tasty of the  smelts, when freshly pan-fried  or broiled over a grill or open  fire.  While non-natives never  seemed to develop a taste  for ooolichan grease it has  never ceased to be an important item in the Indian  community and many families  still set up oil rendering sites  on the river bank as soon as  the female ooolichan arrive in  their area; late March or early  April. At Bella Coola, the  smell of rotting fish always  mingles with the fragrances of  the spring flowers.  The production of grease  is a lengthy process which  begins with decomposition of  the fish, cooking the fish,  skimming off the oil, boiling  the oil (this second cooking  prevents the oil from becoming rancid) and sealing in  glass jugs or cans for sale in  Vancouver.  If you see any fresh oolichan  for sale in the fish market,  try them, they are delicious.  Sea you.

The Roberts Creek lovelies,  however, don't feel threatened. They have a whole  playing season ahead of them  to get into shape. Right now  they're more concerned about  what they're going to wear.  The Daze is a real community effort and the more  people involved the better.  But participation starts now,  at the planning stage.  Get in on the ground floor,  find out how things get done.

I think most of us have  great sympathy for parents  who have lost control of their  children. We probably have a  little less sympathy for those  same parents when they start  to attach the responsibility  to others. The parents I refer  to are at this latter stage  and blaming others makes it  easier for them to deal with  their sense of inadequacy.  Were they to reassume the  responsibility for their kids,  then there are things that  could be done to help them  learn the skills of parenting.  Until they are willing to do  that, however, there will continue to be a small group of  helpless, unhappy parents,  raising hopeless and unhappy  children.

Inglis  Anyone who joins a Chris-  lian congregation expecting to  I ind a collection of saints is  liable to be sadly disappointed!  What is more, the critic who  looks at the congregation and  decides, in his or her wisdom.  that Ihe congregation is not  Christian because it is composed of fractions, fractured  and fragmented people, is not  only showing an abysmal  ignorance of the reality of the  life of the church, but is also  tunning perilously close to  being guilty of opposing God  himself - Ihe one in whose name  Christ calls upon believers to  meet in fellowship as Christian  ���families and worship together  ���lol strength and comfort.  Vet. none other than the late,  great Mahatma Gandhi him-  ���sclf, history records, once went  into a Christian church when  he was a young man in South  ���Africa, and decided on the  [basis of what he saw. that  [Christians were vain, empty,  hypocritical and unworthy of  his alliance.  ll is said that Gandhi was  ^arching for his own identity  at the time, and was attracted  to Christianity by the pictures  he received from the gospels of  the humble, gentle, loving,  healing Jesus of Nazareth, the  "guru" of this Christian religion.  Many ministers, including  'myself, have used this picture  as a way of showing their own  congregation how important it  is to he lovingand hospitable to  all strangers who come through  the church doors, lest they get  ihe wrong idea, like Gandhi,  and never enter a church door  again.  On the other hand, if Gand-  .hi, and the millions of other  'people who judge Christianity  b\   the  bulk   of  Christian  church-goers' behaviour, were  'to go a little deeper in their  survey, they would find that the  Christian   church   does   not  make any claim lo be a body of  "saints.  I rue. there are today, and  there have been through the  -ages, individual church members, or even groups of mem-  . hers, who have been fatuous,  ;". sell-righteous and pious - more  A collection  of saints?  like the scribes and Pharisees  than Jesus' disciples - who have  laid claim to wondrous stature  in God's eyes as the result ot  their church identity, but, as  Gamaliel once warned those  who were opposing Peter and  some other disciples in Jerusalem, "you might even be  found opposing God," (Acts  5:34), so those boasts were  made from man's devising, not  from God's.  Far from being possessed ol  "instant virtue" or automatic  sainthood, as the result of being  church members, those who  inhabit Christian congregations are actually those who  have had the courage to admit  that they are sinners!  It is because they acknowledge the fact they are sinners,  and badly in need of some help  that they turn to the same  source for help in their weakness and sinfulness - Jesus of  Nazareth, the one of whom it  was written: "God was in  Christ, reconciling the world to  himself, not counting their trespasses against them," (II  Corinthians 5:19).  And because these Christians who band together in  churches to study God's word,  to praise God, and to worship  him in such fashion that they  witness to him, are told in  scriptures that they are sons  and daughters of God, that  they consider themselves to be  families.  They consider themselves to  be blood families, just like the  worldly families, only in the  case of Christian families, they  believe that their blood tie is a  spiritual tie with the blood of  that same Jesus of Nazareth,  the Lord and Saviour of  mankind, which was shed on a  cross on a hill outside Jerusalem, 2,000 years ago.  Beside this common bond of  the blood of Jesus, Christians  also believe that they have a  common mission which not  only binds them together, but  gives them a mutual target in  life, and a mutual hope for an  eternal life after death.  This mission was given to all  those who would believe in  Christ (and thus become Christians), by the resurrected Jesus  Christ himself, when he said to  a group of his disciples (the first  fct  Christians): "Go therefore and  make disciples of all nations,  baptizing them in the name of  the Father and ofthe Son and  of the Hoi/ Spirit, teaching  them to observe all that I have  commanded you; and lo, I am  with you always, to the close of  the age." (Matthew 28:19,20).  But every person who responds to this call to union as a  family of Christians, and this  "Great Commission" to teach  and proclaim, does not become  superhuman, any more than  the disciples who walked in  Jesus' footsteps did.  Jesus' close followers, the  disciples who walked with him,  were of humble origin, and they  possessed all the human frailties of pride, envy, jealousy,  anger, uncertainty, fear and  doubt, as the gospel record tells  us.  And it was into these hands  lhat Jesus committed the  awesome task of carrying on  his ministry after his death and  resurrection, the "earthen  vessels," which the apostle Paul  called them, capable of being  crushed, or crumbling in their  frail humanity, but upheld and  strengthened by the common  bond and mission assigned to  all of Christ's followers (Christians).  These are the people who  make up the Christian church  families in the world - not a  group of saints, but a group of  sinners!  But they are sinners who  have had the courage and  wisdom to acknowledge their  sin, and are seeking to reform.  And the membership price  fits any purse!

Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  So far this growing year has  been early and sunny which  means that most gardeners  have already done their  annual spring chores which a  cold and wet March would  preclude. This has left the  gardener with an uncomfortable lack of ease and a restless  feeling that lie should be  doing something, an uncomfortable conscience being  the earmark of every good  gardener. Relax chaps, we are  a little ahead of the game.  Enjoy the spring bulbs and  admire the primroses but  don't rush the season and  harangue the plant shops for  Geraniums, Giant Marigolds  and other tender annuals as a  nip of frost can set these back  or even kill them.

THINKOFUSASA MATCHMAKER     "~  BUYINGORSELUNGTHE   COAIf lift OMStTOWOMtfOllrWI!  must be out there and your  garden is all cleaned, fertilized and ready to go remember that the plant shops  have many gorgeous perennials (plants that come back  year after year and get bigger  and bigger which makes them  an awfully good buy). One  favoured perennial is Leopard's Bane and if you can't  wait for flowers Ihis bright  yellow daisy is the earliest to  bloom of the entire Daisy  family. It offsets the spring  bulbs and gives your garden  an early summer flavour. The  small button or cushion  Chrysanthemums are available and all the plant shops  seem to have new hybridized  perennials each year.  Why not start some of those  gorgeous tropical Begonias  in the house, to be placed on  the patio when they are ready  to bloom and the weather is  much warmer. Pick up some  perennial Lupine and Delphinium spires as a backdrop  for the annuals you intend  to put in at the right time.  Start some seed boxes on a  sunny window sill to be  planted out when the warm  weather arrives. Tuck those  sweet peas in for later cutting  and colour. Get your Geraniums, if you must, and give  them a rousing start in the  house but your efforts will be  more rewarding if you allow  the very knowledgeable plant  shops to harden and toughen,  these goodies for later use.  There is one exception:  Marguerites may be placed in  the ground now. Marguerites  are those tough little instant  garden plants that grow into a  huge bush of cuttable bright  yellow daisies which will fill  any hole and cover any area  and are in my opinion an  absolute must for those of you  who want constant bloom  until next Christmas. They are  also a great filler for those  blankish times that come  along each year. The empty  period between bulbs and  perennials and between perennials and autumn bloom  and I consider Marguerites  one of the best buys on the  market year after year.  Nasturtium seeds come next  on the list for fill-in areas  and around stumps, gates and  sheds. Visit your favourite  plant shop anyway as they are  always so inspiring and  optimistic this time of year  and they do get you moving  and thinking. You have  "Quality Farm" on Pratt Road  in Gibsons, Mack's Nursery  on the highway in Robert's  Creek, "Casey's Country Garden" in Sechelt and the lovely  "Milore" Nursery on Redrooffs. At Madeira Park you  can visit Plant 'n Garden  Centre at Frances Peninsula  Place.  Enjoy the Tulips while  they're here and Happy  Gardening.  Is your wife insured ?

More Letters  to the Editor  Joint Use not working  Ed. note: We have received ���  copy of the following letter  addressed to:  The Chairman,  Joint Use of Schools,  Sunshine Coast Regional District,  Sechelt, B.C.  Dear Sir:  I have been on the "Area  A" Joint Use Committee for  three years and did believe in  its original concept in 1976.  I am sorry to say it is not  working in our area. It was a  new and exciting idea which  became loaded down with  bureaucratic paper work and  inflexible rules. And so our  community school stands a-  lone and empty on most nights  and all weekends. I hope you  will permit me to state a  few reasons more clearly and  maybe we can come up with  a few answers.  1). In renting the facility a  three-week request in writing  to Continuing Education is  required. This is too restrictive to many organizations  and people in the area,  especially if it is an emergency  meeting.  2). Janitors - On the weekend  where a sports event of, say,  a fitness program in the gym  (two to two-and-a-half hour  program) is scheduled, a  janitor hired by the school  board with union pay is then  required to put in a full shift  3:30-11 p.m. or 7:30-3:30 p.m.  Most important, local school  board janitors do not wish to  have days off interrupted (for  which I don't blame them) but  it does seem rather ludicrous  to have a person from Gibsons  travel all the way to Pender  Harbour for a two hour  program. In a recent two  weekend workshop, a lecture  room and the pool were  involved in conducting an  Instructor School workshop.  The hours were from 8:30 a.m.  to 10:30 in the evening,  splitting the time between  the lecture room and the pool.  I would like to say this worked  well and produced Red Cross  Swim instructors for Gibsons,  Powell River and our own  area. The instructor of the  course was well pleased to  have both facilities available.  I hope we can utilize the same  situation again. Now the point  I wish to make. If pool personnel were not entrusted  with the keys and told how to  dispose of the fire alarms,  who would have opened the  school? Local janitors were not  B.C.

The washrooms, showers.  and cooking facilities in the  mezzanine which were to have'  been made available during  sports events were only available when the games were  played after 3:30 p.m. Most  of the games were scheduled  earlier in the day. The reason  the janitor was not called in  for the early shift was that a  fitness program was sche-.  duled for 8 p.m. Sunday:  evenings. This of course did  cause friction with soccer'  clubs etc. who would have  paid to use the facility at  12 p.m.  4). The use of equipment such  as badminton and volleyball  nets (not badminton birds)  also basketballs and volley-  balls, should be available to  reliable persons in charge,  who would then be responsible to report excessive  damage or breakage to Continuing Education. Damage  from general use and repairs  should be- expected. Both  school boards and regional  board should be glad to see  the facility used, instead of  a million dollar facility sitting  locked up tight like a giant  warehouse.  I realize school property  must be protected. But at the  same time the Joint Use  agreement states "And  whereas in the common desire  to avoid duplication it is the  intention of the board and the  district to develop facilities  which may be used for educational, recreational and  other community uses and  thus provide a benefit to the  entire community."  As a member of the Facility  Committee which was established for the Pender Harbour  Joint Use Faciljty.my function  is to establish community  priorities and goals for the  Joint Use Facility and resolve  any conflict as to the use of the  Joint Use Facility. This I am  trying to do.  At a meeting ofthe regional  board, February 12th, I heard  Mr. Brian Stelck, Director;  make a remark which to me  was a bright light in the Joint  Use situation, to use the  1 mil collected from Joint Use  funds and support existing;  joint use projects. Before  building further capital expenditures monies collected  from each area should be  given back to each area  to be used for maintenance,  operation and equipment etc.  I see the above four items  which have plagued me for.  some time, could possibly find  a solution.  If a person could be found in  the community to act as  booking agent for the regional  board, who then contacted a  fully qualified janitor and  caretaker to undertake the  responsibilities (at the pleasure of the school board)  for our area. This would  relieve the school board of  booking and availability of the  facility. 1 am sure there are  lots of qualified people who  would be excellent at the job.  The problem of equipment  would be solved; teachers I  must admit do not like community people to use any  equipment. I say this from  first hand knowledge, being  the fitness programmer for  three years. The community  could then purchase standard  equipment - such as nets ind  balls.  I realize I can only speak  with knowledge of my ow(i  area, but would like to put  forth a strong voice towards  the support by 1 mil from tht  Joint Use funds, for the  maintaining and operation of  Joint Use facilities. ;  In no way am I criticising  Continuing Education or  school board janitors etc. most  of whom have bent over backwards to accommodate. The  rules and restrictions they  have to live with do not make  for good community relations.  Let's hope this can change.

This name arose from the  characteristic jerky, erratic  flight of these tiny creatures  and it doesn't have the same  menacing sound as the name  'Bat'.  The fear of Bats flying onto  one's hair and getting caught  there is an old wives tale  as they are very good fliers  even though their eyesight is  poor. Bats rely mainly upon  echo-location to find their  way around and to capture  their prey. They have greatly  enlarged ears which pick up  the echoes from a steady  stream of high-pitched sounds  they emit. Using this system  they are very accurate hunters  of many types of bugs including those as small as  mosquitoes and gnats. Much  of their hunting is done at  dusk and early evening  which is also when they are  most often seen. Whereas  birds catch bugs in their  bills, Bats use a different  method. They scoop their prey  into the flight membrane  (wing) which they fold temporarily into a pouch, then  they seize the bugs with their  teeth. The insect food of  Bats is captured while in  flight so this unusual method  of capturing their prey accounts for their typical erratic  flight. Not all Bats eat bugs,  some feed solely on fruit and  some eat both.  Bats  are true  mammals,  giving birth to live young  I MISC. SERVICES!

HARTLEY PAINTIM  ftDEC0RATINB  Brush, Roller & Spray  which the females nurse.  There is one peculiarity in  some Bats in that they have a  delayed conception. They  mate shortly before going into  hibernation (some hibernate  and some migrate) but fertilization is delayed until the  following spring. The single  young is born between June  and July after a gestation of  35 to 44 days. It has been  noted that a colony of female  Bats will all give birth  within a few hours of each  other, possibly because they  -woke each other up from  hibernation at the same time,  thus triggering conception all  at the same time. The young  can fly at about four or five  weeks and they are mature by  fall.  Bats are the only mammals  to have mastered true flight  and they have been flying for  thousands of years. Fossils  have been found of bats that  indicate they have not changed through time. Their unique- flying ability plus their,  use of sonar sets them apart  from other mammals. The.'  best part is they use these  features in a good way by  eating thousands upon thousands of insects.

In a  meeting with members of  Gibsons council Monday,  March 23, representatives of  the Ministry of Transportation  and Highways Planning  Branch confirmed that they do  not consider the extension of  Sunnycrcst/Gilmour Roads a  viable direct access to the proposed by-pass. At a meeting  of the regional board last  Thursday night, Gibsons Mayor Lorraine Goddard admitted  that she found ihe arguments  put forward by Highways  Planning Technician Richard  .lames to be "lucid, logical  and almost impossible to  argue with".  At the Monday meeting  James pointed out that the  three options considered by  council, Stewart Road, Gil-  mour Road and Payne Road  arc all theoretically viable if  only one connection to the bypass were to be constructed.  James pointed out that Stewart Road is not an appropriate  termination for the by-pass,  since it duplicates an existing  access and does not bypass Gibsons.  James also noted that the  Sunnycrest / Gilmour route  would be of little value in the  long term, because the purpose of the by-pass is "to  move through traffic around  congested streets" and this  route would feed traffic directly into the community.  The Ministry. James said,  recognizes that Gibsons requires more than one connection to the by-pass, but  recommends that such connectors, when serving a  potential urban area, should  be spaced at least two kilo:  metres apart. If the Sunnycrest / Gilmour route were to  be connected, then the Stewart and Payne Road routes  would both be eliminated,  since each is too close to Gilmour.  As a result, the Ministry  recommends that two connections at an appropriate  spacing would be made; the  Stewart / North Road route  and the Payne / Pratt Road  route. The Sunnycrest / Gilmour route will underpass the  proposed new upper highway  but will not be directly linked  to it.  Transportation Engineer Richard James told Gibsons  council that work on the bypass could begin within two  years, but said he "couldn't  promise anything". Still Mayor Goddard remains optimistic.  "I'm not sorry we raised  a fuss," she told directors at  Thursday night's regional  board meeting, "Because we  kept yelling, we may get  some action on the by-pass at  last."  Riparian rights  Continued from page one.  property or properties. Sorken said that, as he understands the  situation, the municipality would therefore be required to obtain  the written consent of every single property owner affected.  Sorken pointed out that since riparian rights are common law  rights, decisions arc made in such cases on the basis of precedent,  previous legal decisions, rather than on the basis of specific  legislation. Sorken said that no case has ever established "just  exactly how far out" the influence of riparian rights extends, but  that it is generally judged to extend farther out in shallow water,  like ihe tidal flats in Gibsons harbour, because the riparian owner  is entitled to "access to deep water".  In anticipation of one point likely to be raised by the waterfront  property owners, the Marina Committee recommended that  council obtain a written opinion from a qualified B.C. appraiser  as to the effect, if any, the signing away of riparian rights,  balanced by the impact of the new marina, would have on  property values.  The question of the "value" of riparian rights, however, is as  murky and debatable as the legal question itself. Local appraiser  Peter Aelbers told the Coast News that the presence orabsence of  riparian rights does not, in itself, raise or lower the value of  waterfront property.  "The signing away of riparian rights simply gives you less  control of the situation; you have no say about what kind of  development will occur in front of your property. It might be  something that adds to the value of your property, or it might not.  The value of riparian rights is in the eye of the beholder," Aelbers  said.  Aelbers' opinion was seconded by North Vancouver Land  Consultant Fred Cunningham, a 21-year veteran of the Lands  Branch who retired as Assistant Director of Lands 13 years ago to  go into business as an independent consultant. Cunningham is a  recognized expert in the field of riparian rights.  "Riparian rights don't necessarily have value in themselves,"  Cunningham said, "They're variable and they vary with each  property. Obviously riparian rights on a bluff aren't worth very  much."  Cunningham pointed out that while riparian rights need not  necessarily be signed away in perpetuity, it would be impractical  for a major development to have to obtain renewed consent on a  five or ten year schedule.  Cunningham stated that though the value of riparian rights  may be difficult to assess, they are almost always exchanged for a  monetary consideration.  "It's a marketplace situation," Cunningham said.  ��+^ GRAD VARIETY ^>  %>^f Saturday April ^"-' ArWTi  *" 7:00 pm  Music & Comedy & Dance  ��5��@6��@����@��  Introducing  Twrnono m  /wtnontM  RADARAHGES  ��� Exclusive ROTAWAVE Cooking System cooks more evenly  & (asler than ever before.  ��� 700 watls of full energy-saving  cooking power  ���Easy to clean stainless steel  interior with over 1 cu. ft.  capacity  ���Pull-down door allows full  access & is zinc die cast with  lewel-like chrome-plated  finish for lasting beauty.
