Array ������������������������  Voters say "Yes" to Sunday shopping  Edney and Strom  elected in record turnout  by John Moore  The aldermanic elections ind Ihe Sunday Shopping referendum mide for a high 63% turnout, as is in evidence by this line up at  the polling station In Gibsons.  Voters in the municipality of Gibsons turned out in record  numbers last Saturday to replace retiring Alderman Stu Metcalfe  and Dick Fitchett with Bill Edney and Diane Strom and to  reaffirm their right to shop on Sundays.  According to Returning Officer Jack Copland. 63.89c of the  eligible voters cast ballots in Saturday's election, with groups of  ineligible residents from Keats island and other areas outside the  municipal boundaries turning up at the polls and asking to vote on  the Holiday Shopping Referendum.  Merchant Hill Edney was a clear front runner in Ihe Aldermanic  race, capturing 450 votes: behind Edney came Diane Strom with  360 votes, retired technical engineer Boh Maxwell with 320 voles,  and painter Benoit I.ePage with 29 votes.  Edney was understandably jubilant al his performance ai lite  polls, terming it "a grcul victory". He expressed his heartfelt  thanks lo those who supported him in his bid for a scat on council  and pledging lo work for thc good of Ihe whole community.  The overwhelming passage of the Holiday Shopping  referendum by a clear 77.9% majority made it, in a sense, a double  victory for Edney who, as owner and operator of Ken's Lucky  Dollar Poods, campaigned in favour of allowing (iibsons  merchants the option of remaining open on Sundays. Ihe  referendum passed with 4X0 votes in favour and only 136 against,  making Gibsons an exception among lower mainland  municipalities where similar by-laws largely failed to pass.  In Diane Strom. Gibsons council nol only acquires another  woman al Ihe table but a 30 year resident of Ihe village wilh a  proven record of community activity and service. A Sea  Cavalcade organi/er for years, Mrs. Strom has been a ntulilhvr of  the Planning Committee preparing Gibsons Community PliilMIld  has chaired Ihe committee lor Ihe past year. Work on the plan has  been "quite a learning experience", says Mrs. Strom, pointing out  lhat il has given her the opportunity lo work closely wilh the  present council.  ��� "We've enjoyed a very good working relationship with the  Mayor and council". Strom said.  Commenting on her election. Strom said. "I am extremely  pleased, of course. I'd like to thank all the electors who lurned oul  to ihe polls und promise them I'll be working lo the best ol my  ability for Ihe community as a whole.  Aldermen Edney and Strom will be sworn in at 2:30 pm.. on  Monday December I. at Gibsons Municipal Hall.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  Delivered to every address on the Coast  November 18, 1980  Volume 34, Number 46  Fleet shuffled  New ferry runs  The B.C. Ferry Corporation released a revised winter schedule  last week for the Horseshoe Bay - Langdale run.  This was necessary as a result of the M.V. "Queen of  Coquitlam" suffering considerable damage after toppling over at  Burrard Dry Docks.  Following a reshuffle of the fleet, it was established that the  M.V. "Queen of the Islands", a ship with a capacity of 40 cars  would be used as a primary back-up on this run.  David Hunter, Ferry Advisory Committee Chairman for the  Regional District pointed out last week that the 7:40 am. sailing  .mt of Langdale has again been left off the schedule.  See back page for new schedules  Troll fishermen disappointed  New regulations  not enough  by Don l.evan  Local troll fishermen are disappointed at the new regulations  released last month by Fisheries Minister Romeo Lablanc. Most  of those contacted felt thc restrictions imposed on sports fishing  are steps in Ihe right direction but ihey arc nol strong enough to  really change thc situation.  Thc regulatory changes aimed at sports fishermen include  licensing fees of $5 for Canadians and spot closures to protect  juvenile and coho salmon.  Commercial fishermen would like to see more stringent limits  on Ihe amounts the sports fishermen are allowed to catch and the  imposition of a season in some ways similar to their own. It is not  felt ihe doubling of Commercial license fees will do more than  harass already financially overburdened fishermen.  It is generally felt the restriction to six gurdies is a good measure  but most strongly object to ihe two-area troll licensing scheme.  This forces fishermen to opt for a Strait of Georgia licence or one  valid for thc rest of the coast.  This proposal had been defeated twice in thc past by protests led  by the United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union. Local  UFAWU representative Ben Vaughan feels this policy could  seriously affect some of thc licence holders.  Vaughan stated that this is a.nother policy which had been  opposed by thc union in thc past but thai the Fisheries had  decided to go ahead with it anyway.  Esmond Crowley, B.C. Hydro Manager for transmission projects, shows Area B Director Peggy Connor the route for Hydro's  500 kw power line.  More input needed  Hydro meeting inconclusive  by Ian Corrance  Pioneer passes  One of Pender Harbour's true pioneers. Ed Warnock died  November 12 at his home in Francis Peninsula. Edward George  Warnock was born on his parents' float house at Silver Sands in  1914 and lived out his long and productive life entirely in the  Pender Harbour area, working as a hand-logger, trapper,  beachcomber, fisherman and boat-builder. He was the second of 9  children born to pioneer settlers Martin Warnock and Martha  Rouse who came to Pender Harbour in 1909.  Ed was a founding member ofthe Pender Harbour Ratepayers  Association and in recent years served on the Area A Advisory  Planning Committee where his great knowledge of local matters  was much valued:  He is survived by his wife May, his daughter Mrs. Agnes Parr of  Courtenay. two granddaughters and one great-granddaughter.  Funeral services were held Monday in the Madeira Park  Community Hall with burial taking place at the Forest View  Cemetery on Warnock Road, originally donated to the  community by his family.  Ed requested that friends make donations to the Pender  Harbour Health Clinic in lieu of flowers.  At a public meeting in the Regional Board offices in Sechelt on  Friday November 14, board members met with representatives  from B.C. Hydro. The purpose of the meeting was to examine  line-clearing methods for the 500 kilowatt Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  powerline scheduled to run across the Sunshine Coast.  The section of the line up for discussion was from km. 66.7, on  the Pender Harbour side of Sechelt Inlet, across from Salmon  Inlet, to km. 88.7, the tower site on Agamemnon Channel.  At the. onset of the meeting. Hydro passed around an  information sheet outlining their position.  The sheet indicated that there would be no aerial spraying on  this section of line and that there would be no broadcast  application of chemicals within 500 metres of residences, wells  and the same distance downstream from water intakes. There  would also be no broadcast spraying in areas where the conductor  to ground clearance would exceed 30 metres.  Under this set of guidelines there would be no application of  chemicals within 10 metres of any bodies of water, including  marsh areas and within 100 metres of residences, wells and  downstream of water intakes.  Although the meeting was called specifically to discuss line  clearing methods, Chairman David Hunter pointed out that the  entire board was against any type of spraying in the regional area  and it was the impression of some of the members that such a ban  was in effect. This was one of the main points of contention  between the Board and Hydro.  Charles Nash, the Vice-President of Corporate Affairs for  Hydro, felt that the agreement between his corporation and the  Regional Board was that there would be meetings between the  concerned parties, not that there was a ban of chemical  application on the right of way.  From comments made by representatives of Hydro, they still  felt that in some circumstances there was still no alternative but to  use chemicals in weed species control. They did agree to supply the  Board with cost comparisons on chemical and hand clearing.  Another difference of opinion was that the Board felt that  Hydro was committed to keeping them informed on any future  proposals, prior to Hydro being given approval. Here again  Hydro stated that they were under the impression that iheir  responsibility was to inform thc Board only after final approval.  To rectify this latter situation, both Hydro and thc Regional  Board will communicate separately with the Pesticide Control  Board, requesting that copies of all applications be forwarded to  the local board offices upon receipt, so that time can be allotted  for meaningful input from all parties concerned.  Friday's meeting is the first one of this type and as Hydro  pointed out, the intent was to set board guidelines which would be  refined and discussed ugain in more detail.  Although the representatives of the power company felt that  the meeting had been worthwhile, members of both the public  and the Regional Board expressed concern based on their past  dealings with the corporation.  Another meeting has been scheduled for March 1981  Referendum passes  Despite low voter turnout in Areas E and F, the Recreation  Facilities Assistance Referendum has passed by a margin of 234  votes to 120. Only 15.2% of the eligible voters in thc iwo areas  turned out to the polls, a percentage described by Returning  Officer Mike Phelan as, "very low".  The referendum authorizes the regional district to raise  approximately $100,000 jointly from Areas E and F lo be  administered with a likeamount from thc municipality ol Gibsons  a? part of a joint recreation package.  A Parks Committee will now be formed with Area Directors  from E and F sitting down wilh Gibsons municipal  representatives to hammer out priorities and a budget. As  previously stated, first on the list of priorities will be assistance to  the Gibsons Aquatic Centre, with Ihe balance of funds going  toward the improvement of parks and parks equipment in Areas  E and F and the municipality.  Trusi pair elected  Running-mates Ed Drummond and Ann Rogers have been  elected as Gambier Island Trustees, filling the two vacancies on  the Islands Trust left by retiring Trustees Elspeth Armstrong and  Beverly Baxter.  Between them, Drummond and Rogers police approximately  two-thirds of the 182 votes cast; with Drummond taking 60 votes  and Rogers 59. The remaining 63 votes were split 32 and 31 for  Helen Nogroponte and Ted Smyth respectively.  The election of Drummond and Rogers indicates a  reaffirmation of support for the strong position taken by thc  former trustees and the Islands Trust not only against an open-pit  mine on Gambier Island, but against any further melal  exploration on Trust Islands.  McKibbin swept in  Sechelt chartered accountant Warren McKibbin has been  elected to Ihe Board of Trustees of School District No. 46 by a  decisive margin.  Only 110 of the 629 eligible voters turhed oul to the polls lasl  Saturday evening, but they were of like mind, casting 107 ballots  for McKibbin and only 3 for his opponent, painter Benoit  I.ePage.  "I would like to lhank all those who turned out to vole."  McKibbin told thc Coast News. "I will endeavour to do my very  besl lo represent Ihe parents of children in the whole school  district."  McKibbin, who has in recent months been a prominent voice  among Sechelt parents who wish to see Chatelech expanded into  a full Junior-Senior Secondary school, fills the vacancy left by  retiring trustee Maureen Clayton.

We welcome  Gibsons Aldermen Bill Edney and  Diane Strom, School Trustee Warren  McKibbin and Gambier Island Trustees  Ed Drummond and Ann Rogers to the  arena of public life.  Several of those elected are no strangers to public life and the democratic  process, having been active on local  committees or with community associations and vocal at public meetings. Familiar with the tremendous  amount of extra work involved in community service, the greatest adjustment  they will have to make will be seeing their  names in the newspaper on a regular  basis. Vou have pledged yourselves to  serve the community; we, for our part,  will do our best to report your activities  impartially, quote you accurately and, of  course, spell your names correctly.  There is another, larger group of  people who deserve to be congratulated  after last weekend; I refer to the voters  who took the time and trouble to go to the  polls and exercise their democratic right  last Saturday. The Gibsons aldermanic  election and Holiday Shopping referendum vote was a particularly gratifying  demonstration of democracy at work,  with an estimated more than sixty per  cent of the eligible voters casting ballots.  The week before the election, television viewers were treated to the spectacle of the Vancouver mayoralty candidates in a round-table discussion  moderated by Mike Winlaw of CKVU,  during which they spent an embarrassing  amount of time splitting hairs over  whether or not a 51 % vote in favour of a  ward system could truly be considered  an expression of the will of the people  when only 30% ofthe eligible voters cast  ballots.  Quibbling of this kind is the result of  for elections at all levels of government.  Poor voter turnout leaves a depressing  pall of apathy and an atmosphere of  unanswered questions hanging over any  election. Larger voter turnouts and clear  cut majorities, like the Gibsons election  and referendum vote indicate that people  care deeply about their community and  its future.  Our MLA, Don Lockstead has recently  pointed out that municipal government is  the government "that gets you where you  live". In the newspaper business we  meet constantly with residents ofthe area  who are generous with their verbal  criticism of local politicians, yet at the  regular public meetings of the two village  councils and the regional board reporters  often find themselves a lonely audience.  There are those few familiar faces who  appear faithfully at meetings, week in  and week out, attend public hearings and  engage in a meaningful dialogue with  their elected representatives, but the  decisions made by our Mayors, Aldermen  and Regional Directors affect us all.  Abrogation of your right to vote or the  failure to take an interest in the doings  and sayings of your elected representatives does not, in a democracy, rob you of  your right to complain, but it must  mitigate your credibility.  Readers will note that, in co-operation  with Mayor Bud Koch of Sechelt, we are  publishing the Agenda of this week's  meeting of Sechelt Council on Page  Three, in the hope that residents will  be encouraged to attend council meetings  and observe how their business is conducted. We applaud Mayor Koch for his  suggestion.  As a post-script, we would be remiss  if we failed to thank the unsuccessful  candidates in last week's elections. For  their active participation, we thank  Robert Maxwell, Benoit LePage, Helen  Negroponte and Ted Smyth. We hope  and trust we have not heard the last of  them.  the all too frequent light voter turnouts  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Regional District indicated that it would attempt to  block a building permit for Construction Aggregates near Port Mellon  because the proposed expansion  would mean that 2 million gallons of  effluent per day would be dumped into  Howe Sound.  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department  acquired a new "pager system" to  improve their response time in emergencies.  Gasoline prices at two Gibsons gas  stations took an unexpected and  unexplained drastic drop.  TEN YEARS AGO  Ken's Lucky Dollar store in Gibsons  changed hands with new owner Bill  Edney taking over from Ken Watson.  Edney. who had operated several food  stores on the mainland for many years,  announced that he and his family  would settle in Gibsons shortly.  Sechelt Teachers Association president John Burnside announced that  the organization has passed a resolution recommending that the District 46  school board liberalize its dress code  for students in the district.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  After rescinding a motion that  consideration be given to the expansion of Sechelt's boundaries to include  the area from West Sechelt to the Girl  Guide Camp at Wilson Creek, Sechelt  council modified the expansion to  include West Sechelt only, eliminating  anything east of the village.  Gibsons council sent a letter to B.C.  Highway Minister Phil Gaglardi pointing out that the Sunshine Coast  Highway from Port Mellon to Jervis  Inlet needs some attention.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  St. Mary's Hospital Society received  approval to hold a plebiscite to  authorize formation of the Hospital  Improvement District.  This was the last week Gibsons and  Sechelt   lesidents   turned   magneto  cranks on their telephones. At 11:00  a.m. Saturday, the. new automatic  exchange equipment went into operation.  TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO  A cold snap added an impetus to  business on the Sunshine Coast, with  merchants reporting record sales of oil  heaters and anti-freeze. Randall Lake  near Roberts Creek was frozen to a  depth of three feet and impromptu  skating parties braved the cold  weather for some rare outdoor skating.  The cold did not prevent a good  turnout to Remembrance Day ceremonies in Gibsons, but the ceremony  was kept to a minimum on account of  the weather. Blackball Ferries had  difficulty with the gale force winds in  the Sound and Charlie Strom of  Gibsons spent spent one day ferrying  two boatloads of passengers to  Fisherman's Cove when ferry service  was temporarily cancelled.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The 32 foot gillnetter "Linda" had a  narrow escape from total destruction  when it piled onto the beach across  from the Union Store in Sechelt during  a storm on Wednesday. Clarence Joe  incurred minor damage to his seiner  when he performed salvage operations  on the "Linda".  Sidney Holland retired from the staff  of the Elphinstone Co-operative after  twenty five years. Holland said he had  seen the community of Gibsons grow  from its childhood when it was little  more than a few houses mostly used by  summer visitors to its present size and  felt that it was still a long way from full  growth.  THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO  The editorial staff of the Coast News  apologized for the undersized nature  of the paper during this formative  period, but with rationing still in effect  only a certain allotment of paper was  available for new weekly newspapers.  The staff expressed regrets that the  shortgage would enable the paper to  publish only every other week.  (amp Kelly, Queen Charlotte Islands. It.M.

Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >  George Matthews  ^Jz  j%  Today is Wednesday, November 12, and I am to my  own amazement preparing to  take a small voyage in November yet again with Brad  Hope.  The last time I took such a  voyage was early in November  of 1976. 1 was working as  editor of the Coast News for  a shrewd young man nanwl  Doug Sewell whose idea it  was that we publish a magazine in addition to the  newspaper and I was fortunate  enough to be invited to be  editor of bolh the newspaper  and the magazine for the one  princely salary.  The voyage four years  ago was for an article for the  magazine on Chatterbox Falls.  Corrance was along to take  pictures for thc article. All  went well, if somewhat coldly  until we reached Tsoh-nye or  Deserted River. This was  before the native studies  course was instituted and in  1976 Deserted River was  indeed deserted.  For some reason which  escapes me now we had been  late in getting away and made  camp at Deserted River, just  five miles below Princess  Louisa Inlel and Chatterbox  Falls.  11 had been at that time  some twenty years since I had  done any camping outdoors  whatsoever and 1 was ill-  prepared for the Jervis Inlet  sortie. My sleeping bag  proved absolutely inadequate  against thc November chills  and there was nothing for it  but lhat Corrance and myself  just had fo drink the whisky.  Next morning il was still  November, still cold, wc were  hung over and a long way Irom  home and the falling tide had  parked the boat squarely on  a rock which had been submerged on our arrival and  Ihere was nothing for it but to  turn back towards Egmont  bailing as wc went.  There were. I think, five of  us in Ihe party. Brad and June  Hope. Corrance. myself, and a  Chinese gentleman called  Jose. Jose took a picture of us  on the way back which hung  on the back wall of the Coast  News until jusi recently with  the caption Voyage of the  Damned. It showed Corrance  in tarn and beard standing  morosely in the background  like some deranged Scots  shepherd who had gone to  sleep in his ain but and  ben and had woke up next  morning in a small and leaking  boat seven thousand miles  from home amidst mighty  foreign mountains and was  most   unsure   of   his   com  panions. Myself, needing a  haircut and with that small  intensity of eye which comes  to wandering preachers and  the dreadfully hung over, was  glaring at the camera with an  accusing eye which would  have done John Knox proud.  Brad and June were their  usual healthy, cheerful selves  and nothing in their appearance suggested that the  caption applied to them.  It was not the first abortive  journey by water I had experienced with Brad Hope.  Twelve years ago in Dawson  City while 1 was temporarily  in my cups and he was moonlighting as bartender in the  old Downtown Hotel he talked  me inlo participating with him  in the First Annual Klondike  River Rafl Race.  I can remember modestly  pointing out my lack of experience but he brushed aside  my objections. He knew all  there was to know, it seemed,  about the Klondike River and  thc construction of river rafts  and all that would be required  of mc would be lo show up and  lame would immediately embrace me. I had not then, nor  have 1 now, ever been in a raft  race and the prospect so  intrigued me that 1 was an  uncommonly frequent visitor  at the Downtown Hotel for a  couple of weeks before the raft  race.  II is a sad fact that truth is  difficult to pin down even  today and twelve years ago it  can elude one entirely. Suffice  il to say that Brad and I have  never been able to agree on  in that summer of 1968. I can  only pass along my version  and hope that Brad by this  time has yielded the day and  accepted my recollections as  fact.  The Tuesday before the raft  race, I believe the 13th of  August 1968, Brad and I had  another planning session in  the Downtown Hotel, the final  such session I do believe.  We were primed for the big  event and our planning had an  awesome and inevitable simplicity about it which had  me at least persuaded that the  championship of the river raft  men was within our untried  but eager grasp.  The next dav after our tune-  up planning session 1 was  having a picnic lunch on  the banks of the Klondike  River contemplating its swift  current and imagining the  glory lhat was to come. A  heavily laden station wagon  went bv and my wife waved.  "Who was that?" I enquired.  "Thai's Brad and June and  Ihe kids and they're off to  Winnipeg," she said.  "Not Brad and June Hope.  surely?"  "Certainly, didn't you know  they were leaving town for  good today?"  I stood and watched the  vanishing dust cloud which  was taking with it my dreams  of river rafting glory. "What  aboul the raft race?" I howled  after it. It's a question I've  been asking Brad ever since  and will again on this voyage  Ihis November.  ihe deiails of what happened  wooooeooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot  Sonnet  lime heats ils wings against the window pane,  Demanding entrance, hut the glass intrudes.

Peterson  IQOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBOBOWCOOOPOOOOM  Most individuals and most  families have plans and  projects which, implicitly or  explicitly, they attempt to  accomplish. These projects  range in magnitude from  buying Christmas presents  to planning a family vacation  lo designing a new house.  Some projects are inexpensive  and short term and some  require the dedication of  massive amounts of money  over many years. While the  vast majority of personal and  family projects are to satisfy  some basic want or need,  occasionally a goal of the  greater society becomes so  imbedded in the consciousness of the individual members of the society that the  accomplishment of these goals  becomes an individual imperative.  One such societal goal  which has captured the  imaginations of the people of  our country is the conservation  of energy. Whatever collectivity first decided that  saving fuel was to become a  priority of our society was  probably doing us all a good  turn but the vigour of the  campaign to convince us of its  importance has begun to get  out of hand.  Among the unintended and  unanticipated consequences  of convincing people that  saving energy is important  perhaps the most terrible is  the expense. One family  recently calculated that saving  fuel has cost them $128,000  over Ihe past three years.  The attempt to jump on the  energy conservation bandwagon began modestly e-  nough. They decided that thc  nexl family vacation would be  conducted on bicycles. After  purchase of all relevant  equipment, the net increase in  cost over Ihe previous year's  holiday was $1500, a broken  leg, one strained back, 14  blisters and a case of hemorrhoids. The bicycles have not  been used since.  By this time however the  compulsion to save energy  had become so ingrained in  the collective psyche of this  doomed household that nothing would do but seal the  house totally against the  insidious invasion of fresh  winter air. Walls which  previously contained four inches of insulation were ripped  apart and stuffed with twelve.  The cost of insulation, repairs  to interior walls, incidental  damage and thc wages of the  carpenter they finally had to  hire came to something over  $4500. The estimated saving  in fuel bills came to about $125  per year.  And  what did   they  learn  from the experience? Father  decided lhat the oil furnace  had lo go. By this time thc  family savings were near to  used up. so in order to finance  the furnace conversion, a  second mortgage was ob-  lained. Months of research  came up wilh the most efficient heating system for the  house: a Belgian-made, wood-  burning, automatic boiler1 system. The cost ofthe unit itself  was $5500 in Belgium. By the  time Ihe new furnace had  arrived and the family sat  down to Ihe task of planning  its installation, it was midsummer, the total cost was  now $6200 and the family  vacation had to be called off  due to lack of funds. While it  was thought thai this year's  holiday could he spent installing the new furnace, when  the installation instructions  proved to be printed in  Flemish and French, at least  the senior member of the  family got to spend his holiday  at a rest home. Total cost  of private room and special  counselling care came to $600.  By this time. Mother  decided she had better go to  work to support Ihe dwindling  family income. Her new wardrobe came to $1250. She found  a job in an adjacenl community and needed a new car.  The family agreed, that now  that they had chosen to march  down the inexorable road to  energy savings. Mother's new  car had to be a foreign made  diesei; price: $10,200.  There can be no doubt thai  this particular family had  chosen a noble goal bul such  single-minded tenacity is nol  without its price. The latest  in a series of financial and  emotional crises saw Ihe  family's oldest son go out and  buy a car wilh fat tires and  500 horsepower engine. Al the  family inquisition, held a-  round the airtight garbage  burner in the kitchen, thc kid  finally broke and said he just  couldn't stand it any more.  He was going crazy trying to  save energy and he just  flipped out. In tears he  explained thai Ihis was his lasl  chance in the whole world  lo ever jump in a car, make the  tires screech and drive fast.  While Mother sympathized,  the rest of the family was  outraged. They pointed toward Ihe door and the boy  slunk out. The last thing they  heard of their eldest son was  a huge roar from his car's  engine, a terrifying screech of  tires and a Ya-hoo! yelled  from the open window as he  turned the corner and roared  out of sight.  *____*______________  m*.  mmtm WP  m  'Spiaklng ai on* Canadian to another... wt Albtrtam don't believe that a  15 par ctnt decrease In oil production It going to offset you . ..'  Letters to the Editor  A doubtful trade-off  Editor:  Are we ready for multi-  family housing?  In recent years with the  scarcity of residential properly  in urban centres, the swing has  been away from the traditional  single family dwelling towards  townhouses and condominiums. Developers and planners  argue that this produces the  optimum use ofopenspaceand  buildings on any given lot. in  built up areas with few lots  available for use this makes  some sense. What about the  human element? Are we Canadians ready for such close together living with our neighbours? Have we developed the  righl living skills lo make il  work successfully? i think not.  Successful family living  below, above, or directly beside  other families takes a great deal  of co-operation and consideration, both in little and big  things. Radios, stereos and  T.V. must al all limes be  carefully modulated. Pets kept  under control at all limes and  out of neighbours' flower boxes  and patios. Doors quietly shut  and never slammed. Cars  driven in and out of parking  spots slowly and carefully and  horns not honked in impatience. Bikes, tricycles and  toys not left on paths and  walkways, late night guests  discouraged and earlier ones  cautioned to silence, children  not allowed to run on stairs and  halls, ball players directed to  the nearest park or school  grounds, small children trained  not to wander into neighbours'  houses or patios, care taken of  lawns and plantings, objects  not left on balconies where they  could fall and hurt others  below, domestic quarrels kept  under control, large loud  parties discouraged.  A family living in their own  home on a single lot tries to be  careful about these things.  When they are jammed inlo  multi-family dwellings little  things become much bigger. A  loud radio from ten or 50 feet  away is very different from one  vibrating the other side ofthe  partition. Insulation and sound  barriers are of no help with the  windows open. Few families  have the skills and patience and  willingness to cope when all  jammed up together.

The program, as you know,  showed Armistice Day ceremonies; old men, veterans of  two wars, some in wheel  chairs, mourning the loss of  the fallen. Men who had  suffered and bled defending  our Canada. Yet on the same  newscast was a disgraceful  footage showing and allowing  a group of so-called Separatists to appear.

November 18. 1980  for single dwelling units the  town council of Gibsons is ill  advised to allow the re-zoning  to multi-family without taking  a good look at the human  elements involved. Gibsons  already has a growing problem  of vandalism, noise pollution,  abandoned and neglected pets,  unsafe roads and corners etc.  The encouragement of high  density housing creates extra  problems and magnifies all  proportions. This step definitely brings the heed of a town  constable, dog catcher, storm  sewers, bus service and other  services closer and closer.  I doubt that thc trade off of a  special quality of life for a few  more tax units will prove to be  good value for the town of  Gibsons.  Dory Anne Robertson  A standing  oration  Editor:  Your recent comments a-  bout Charles Lee are certainly  well taken. I have watched  his performance for several  years and have never liked  what I saw. I often wonder  why people elect someone like  him, but then I also wondered  how they could elect Nixon.  Bruce Moseley  P.S. He recently boasted of  receiving a standing ovation.  I too would stand to applaud  his retirement.  Why were these people  allowed on the same program  with the heroes of two World  Wars, men who fought for our  country? I was ashamed to  realize that the permissiveness of our times would permit  such a gross lack of good  taste. In Russia these traitors  would have been shot.  Why are such traitors  allowed to roam free, let alone  be given free display on  Canadian T.V?  Sincerely,  W.J.

Grandaddy Tough wilh his  hackles up is a memorable  sight. Grimfaced, reddening, he  draws himself to his full height  and glares at the engineer. He's  all the ironassed hooktenders  I've ever met or imagined rolled  into one roaring bear of  indignation. Quarry wilts in the  heat of the old logger's anger  and slinks off muttering. He's  more than twenty years younger but he knows when he's  overmatched. The fun's finished. We turn to our task and  wind that long-splice in according to Casey.  Working for Casey is a  pleasure. I just don't argue with  him. Between turns and at  noon, I press him to tell me  about the oldtime woods. He's  more than willing to oblige. In  more than forty-five years of  knocking around the B.C.  jungles, he's damn near seen it  all. "Did you ever work with  any of those famous guys like  Rough House Pete?' I ask.  "Only worked with him one  lime over on the Island. Matter  of fact, it was the first time i  over tended-hook. He showed  'up in camp with Eight-Day  ��� Wilson, both of them rumdum.  After they'd slept it off a bit,  they came setting-chokers for  me. They was getting old then  and all shot to hell from booze.  Setting beads was about all  they was good for anymore.  But they sure could bullshit.  Talk about your haywire  logging stories-they knew them  all. We used to just sit back and  listen to those bastards go.  Wish I could recall some of  those yarns for you but it was a  long time'back and they never  stayed more'n a week. That was  Eight Day's style and I guess  he'd got old Rough House  doin' it too. Never seen either of  them again."  After a few days, Black  locates a new hooktender by  the name of Jesse Trent and  Casey returns to the landing.  "Don't bother me on the flat  ground, kid, but I sure as hell  can't take this sidehill-gougin'  no more!" I miss his stories but  Trent is easy to work with and  things run smoothly for the  next couple of weeks. The  weather warms and soon Black  reports that the snow is almost  gone on the high plateau.  "Guest you guys will be taking  the trackloader up there Monday" he informs me. "Joshua's  coming back."  "Oh   yeah."   I   prefer  the  trackloader to the tower,  workwise, but the thought of  having to cop* with that surly  bastard again hardly inspires  me. I almost ask to stay on the  stcelspar but I'm anxious to see  the country on top. Maybe  illness has mellowed him a bit.  Joshua indeed, seems different. He's lost weight; looks pale  and subdued. We rattle the  overhauled machine along a  branch-road out of the bowl  and up several tight switchbacks to the highground, using  the help of a cat on the worst  stretches. The upper shelf has  been almost as well-logged as  the bowl. There are two or  three partial settings and one  Harge one remaining. We clank  our way to thc crest of a small  hummock and set up shop.  You can see damn near  forever from here - over thc  hulking islands, past smog-  blurred Vancouver, all the way  to Washington State where  volcanic Mt. Baker broods  whitely. I haven't struck a finer  vantage-point in years. Flabbergasted as always by the way  the world looks from lofty  places, I drink in thc view.  But we're here to log, not  sightsee. We string our lines out  across the top of the knoll and  begin yarding counter- clockwise. The roads are very short  to start with but lengthen as wc  progress. At one point, 1  stumble across an old campsite.  There are empty cans and  bottles scattered about, along  with rusty shackles and lengths  of line. I wonder what they  signify. Then I remember.  Years before, they experimented with a Wyssen line on this  mountain - a very long, light  skyline system, developed in  Switzerland. The top end ofthe  cable must have been anchored  at this spot. There were no  roads to the rop then and the  Swiss demonstrators had evidently lived here in tents among  the still-standing timber. The  system, unable to handle the  heavy logs, was soon abandoned.  The weather seesaws between rain and sun as summer  approaches. At this altitude,  we're frequently fogged-iirj��by  low clouds. They lie like a  sopping blindfold over us,  blotting out everything but  immediate silhouettes. There is  an unearthly quality to such  days. Often the sun is shining  beyond the mist but we're  trapped within it, eerily and  damply plying our trade.  To be continued  T,ie Hunter Gallery  TWILIGHT  THEATRE  Wed. - Thurs. - Fri. - Sat.

Sunn Classic Pictures'  Hangar 18 is a fictionalized  and fully dramatized account  of just such a situation, in  which a routine NASA mission  turns into an unexpected  encounter with alien life.  The film focuses on the  political repercussions that  could result from such an  encounter, with the government attempting to avoid a  national or planetary panic by  suppressing the evidence and  the credibility of a whole  Presidential administration at  stake.  Hangar 18 is fast-paced  and action-packed, as astro  nauts and NASA investigators  clash with government agents  determined to suppress the  startling secrets of Hangar 18.  Hangar 18 plays at the Twilight Theatre from Wednesday  November 19 to Saturday, November 22 and patrons are  advised to phone ahead for  show times (886-2827) as  extra shows may be added.  Starting Sunday, November  23, the Twilight Theatre  presents Foxet, a look at the  growing pains of four urban  adolescent girls. Foxea has  been described as a teenage  version of Saturday Night  Fever with its powerful rock  score and its concern with the  growing pains of young people  in an urban setting.  The pace of Foxea is varied,  with comic moments alleviating the intensity of dramatic  confrontations and younger  audiences are likely to identify  strongly with the heroines.  Foxea is rated R and plays at  the Twilight Theatre until  Tuesday, November 25.

Here  and there occasional ramshackle reminders have been  preserved; rough-hewn log  bastions and clapboard  churches, weed-tangled cemeteries and, once in a wilderness, complete abandoned  towns. British Columbia is  still close enough to its  pioneer origins that the  patterns of settlement, with  the exception . of primary  resource company-towns that  appear like mushrooms, have  not changed substantially.  As a result, new buildings  have been built not around  older buildings, but in most  cases on the same sites after a  bit of brisk work with a  bulldozer. Since pioneer architecture tends to be impermanent itself, of little value  except in a historical sense,  arguments in favour of its  preservation are hard to  marshal in an era of rapid  expansion and development.  Only when a culture enters a  period of consolidation can it  afford the luxury of preserving  artifacts and buildings of  another' era on aesthetic  and historic grounds for  leisurely perusal.  The end result is that  B.C., and much of the country  as a whole, appears to consist  of little islands of concrete  and glass, connected by  powerlines, iron rails and  asphalt, with little indication  of how they came to be there.  If you are lucky enough and  have the time, you can hunt up  a few of the old-timers in an  area, most of whom will gladly  take you on a guided tour of  the past, but the landscape  they describe may well be  beyond your powers of Imagination.  Written history is all too  often dry reading and suffers,  in varying degrees depending  on the author's abilities,  from the same lack of visual  impact as reminiscence. The  trend toward oral history  we have seen developing  lately sometimes forgoes strict  factual accuracy in order to  capture something of the  flavour or atmosphere of the  time and events described,  but it's still difficult to conjure  up the ghosts of the past when  you're walking through a town  or an area that has undergone great physical change.  Developments in the art of  photography have proved an  invaluable aid for capturing  the visual history of late-  developing areas like British  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  1980 Aurora edited by Morris Wolfe, September 1980, paper  $9.95  Editor Morris Wolfe declares both welcome and farewell in his  introduction of this third issue of Aurora. For three years we have  revelled in thc rarity of fresh Canadiana offered in a highly  selective collection. It updates annually the work of both well  known and new authors.  The majority of Canadian book buyers persistently wallow in  supermarket blockbuster "best-sellers", ignoring superior  writing, more exciting and memorable lhan the junk reading on  cheap racks next to vegetables. In fact, a trip down the mall hall or  the busy street will get you a lot more satisfaction for your book  dollar than what you might find in a food store.  Aurora sold only 3500 copies last year despite rave reviews.  Doubleday gamely offers to continue publication, but it is editor  Wolfe's decision lo hold off for a year hoping sales will improve.  My pessimism regarding Canadian book buyers tells me thai like  Ihe book's theme, death is on the way.  Canadians pay a lot ol lip service worrying aboul Iheir national  identity but few give il commilmenls. Our writers perceive the  human soul more deeply, they take the individual more seriously.  Hollywood flash and Eastern pizazz counl little in our country's  literary scene. Our writers see nobility in the ordinary, honour in  human fraility and wealth in experience. Tracing one's ancestry  back inlo Ihe centuries or counting millions is nol a recurring  theme in Canadian literature. Ihe work of our writers is great. We  have bul to recognize it ourselves.  Aurora's 1980 anthology has as ils theme: endings, farewells  and death. Although a thematic approach is not intentional il  seems prevalent. A sense of haunting sadness leaves readers  thoughtful long after the volume is finished. Characters uncannily  remind us of something long repressed within.  The loneliness of young love uncommitted, as il peters into  friendship and then oblivion, is experienced in stories by Greg  Holingshead and Tom Marshall. Farewell to husbands and wives  is treated humourously by Brian Bartlett, and solemnly by Ciuy  Vanderhaeghc. Tender, cold poems tell of losing friends and  children. Poets Susan Musgrave and Miriam Waddington are  among many others in Aurora.  A sample of the books occupation with death is found in  Alistair MacLeod's poem about his lamily burial plot in Cape  Breton.  When we were teenagers, it was our task  To dig the graves of our dead in thc family plot.  Standing with picks and shovels, we would wait for   .  Our grandfather lo stake out the area. "Don's dig  Here." he would say. "'['hat's where the babies are."  And "Not here either. Nor here.." Sometimes he called  Them "children" making them seem somehow older  And more playful, although dead. We imagined their  Delicate, skeletal fingers linked together in the  Circle of a children's game deep in Ihe darkness  Astrology  continued  Others may begin to question  the sincerity of your unconventional viewpoints. There's  surprising news from a distance. Full Moon draws attention to emotional domestic  decision. Looks like recent  involvement was based on  material rather than spiritual  needs.

Histories of B.C.  or specific areas of the province are now generously  reinforced with photographs  to give the reader a more  realistic concept of the landscape and the flavour of the  times.  Often the pictures steal the  show, as they are meant to do  in George Woodcock's A  Picture History of British  Colombia (Hurtig Publishers.  $18.95). Woodcock's text is  more of an outline of the  history of the province than an  in-depth study; competent  and even intriguing in places  as Woodcock demonstrates  his flair for acquiring out of  the way anecdotes. Those  familiar with Woodcock's  work in the Ralncoaat Chronicles will miss the depth but  recognize the easy narrative  style and insight as Woodcock  surveys the major movements  that shaped the province.  The swiftly moving, if  occasionally sketchy, narrative  holds the reader's interest,  (more than can be said for  many histories), and with the  pictures the book would make  a fine introduction to British  Columbia history for students.  (I remember getting to the  final page of my high school  history text a little over a  decade ago and discovering  that the outcome ofthe Second  World War was still in doubt.  If students are expected to  shrug off their natural apathy  and show an interest in the  history of their country and  province, they must at the  very least be provided with  texts that are up-to-date  and interesting in themselves.)  A picture History of British  Columbia does not confine  itself to photographs alone;  there are also excellent  reproductions of engravings  and paintings and drawing's  that predate the advent of  photography. The all black  and white reproduction is, in  the main, excellent, given the  often variable quality of  original photos and engravings etc. The result is a  fascinating mosaic portrait of  the province's past; from the  steamboats and gold-rush  towns, Hudsons Bay posts and  early lumber camps to the  low-profile skyline of old  Vancouver.  A Picture History of British  Columbia stimulates your  curiosity more than satisfies  it; a reminder of how many  blanks are still to be filled  in, how many volumes still  to be written. All for now.  Art of fantasy exhibit  coming to the coast  iCoast News, November 18, 1980  The Extension Department  of the Vancouver Art Gallery  is pleased to announce that a  new touring exhibition concerned with various artists'  realizations ofthe imagination  will be exhibited in town soon.  Entitled Fantaayi A Pursuit  of Dreams, the show will be  seen by local students on  Monday, December 8 at  Elphinstone Secondary in Gibsons and Tuesday, December  9 at Chatelech Junior Secondary and will be available for  adult viewing at Elphinstone  Secondary School in Gibsons,  on Monday, December 8  between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m,  There is no charge for admission.  Over the centuries, artists  have followed either organized  movements or their own  sensibilities in seeking to  convey levels of the conscious, and unconscious mind.  Whether as a member in the  schools of symbolism, romanticism, or surrealism, each  artist in this exhibition has  turned to recording or evoking  the sometimes terrifying,  often nonsensical, images  which the imagination yields.  As the audience we may  choose to appreciate their  vision, and we may in turn  identify some of these realities  with those of our own experience. Included in Fantasy  are pieces by Emily Carr,  Claude Breeze, Gathie Falk,  Joan Miro, Ed Ruscha, Jack  Shadbolt, and William Reid,  among others.  Of particular note is the oil  painting completed by the  British master Henry Fuseli in  1790.

' Lavish in content, the  painting indicates Fuseli's  selection of literary subject  matter rich in sublime and melodramatic narrative. While  it has been exhibited in  Hamburg, London and Paris,  this marks the first occasion  that the painting has been  circulated in British Columbia.  All 16 paintings, sculptures  'and prints in Fantasy are from  the Gallery's permanent collection or are on loan from the  collection of J.

Some wee gremlin  made a boo boo and missed  out a couple of lines in my last  column, thus changing the  whole connotation of what I  was saying! It was about the  two Christmas dinners to be  held at the Welcome Beach  Hall - the ones which are  sponsored by the Welcome  Beach Community Association  on December 12th and 13th.  It read that the Friday night  is for those who do not care to  dance to the music of Paul  Hansen. Now we all know  that Everyone who dances  loves to dance to the music  of Paul Hansen, so why  would I say such a daft thing I  What I did in fact say was as  follows: Friday December 12  is family night for those who  do not care to dance and who  prefer an evening of carols  and entertainment. Saturday  is for those who love to dance  to the music of Paul Hansen,  end of quote. So now that we  have got that sorted out we  can remind you to get your  tickets ordered right away and  avoid disappointment. Price is  seven bucks apiece.  Talking of Christmas parties, the Halfmoon Bay Re  creation Society have set the  date for Santa's annual visit  to the children of the area at  the Welcome Beach Hall on  December 21st from two till  four. There will be more on  this as the time draws nearer.  The Recreation group have  also planned a family swim at  the Pender Harbour pool from  one till two on November  30th. All residents of the Halfmoon Bay area will be most  welcome to join this afternoon  of fun. For further information  you could give Heidi Goodman  a call at 88S-261S.  Long-Time resident* movei  Redrooffs Road is about to  lose yet another couple of old-  time residents who are making  the move into Greene Court in  Sechelt. Hugh and Irene  Duff will be doing so by the  end of this month. Quite a  few couples have recently  decided to do this and while  we will miss them in the area,  it does make a lot of sense  when you find that the load  of taking care of a big house  and garden becomes a bit  heavy, to move to where you  are not burdened with such  things. We hope that the  Duffys will still be a part of  our community and that we  will still see them at the local  functions. Our good wishes go  with them.  pmtech  OFFICE   ELECTRONICS  ��� Photocopiers ��� Typewriters  ��� Cash Registers ��� Calculators  ��� Office Supplies  Furniture   &   Stationery  Wharl Rd.

They  had eight weeks of beautiful  sunny weather and really  felt the chill and damp for a  few days when they got home.  November is certainly no great  time to be in this part of  the world. Don't know how  many of you read John  Burnside's item last week  where he talked about how  miserable it can be at this  time of year, but how it can  be enjoyed by spending more  time visiting and talking with  good friends. That is so very  true.  Rou Conqueit at peace:  After a lengthy illness,  Ross Conquest of Halfmoon  Bay died on November llth.  Ross is survived by a sister in  Victoria and by the many  friends that he made during  his stay in this area. He  faithfully took care of the  water line for the Redrooffs  area prior to the hook-up to  the main and could be found  away up in the bush somewhere to repair a broken line  in all kinds of weather. Ross  was thought very highly of by  his neighbours and will be  sadly missed.  Local store changes hands:  The B&J Store at Halfmoon  Bay will be taken over by new  owners on January 15th. They  are a Mr. & Mrs. Schmidt  who, together with their two  sons will be moving into the  house at the store at the end of  this month. Present owners  Ralph and Maria Mahar  will still take care of the  store and post office until the  middle of January when they  hope to move into their new  home in the Brooks Road area.  The Mahars have had the  store for the past six years and  will no doubt be happy to have  a break from the demanding  hours that have to be worked  when you run a small business  on your own. I know that  everyone will wish them  happiness in their new home,  and will welcome the new  owners when they take over  this very popular spot.  Would like to say a special  happy birthday wish to our  good friend Olive for having  achieved the big "O".  ECKANKAR  YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW  that Heaven is RIGHT HERE NOW!!!

Potters get skunked  byJonVanAndeU  Potters get skunked.  Civet cats struck again in  Egmont. This week they had  the audacity to crawl right  under the Deacon's trailer and  "let her go" as they say, on  the seine boats. After the cats  let go the happy potters  (the old Egmont Pottery  keeps lots of us in fine dishes)  migrated to our house for the  evening.  Greg and neighbour Dick  White got busy after dinner  and borrowed two fancy  traps from Doug Bryant of  Ruby Lake. Sure enough two  hours of bacon-baited trapping caught two of the smelly  critters. The school kids  visited these enclosed wild  creatures the next day and  one of them gave a live  demonstration in the olfactory  sense.

After the  wreaths were laid the service  continued inside with Reverend Robinson of the Anglican  Church giving the address.  President Roy Milliner presented past officer medals to  Jim Ridgewell and Phil Bailey  for 'their services to the  Legion. Herb Richter was to  receive his at the general  meeting.  Luncheon was served by the  Ladies Auxiliary and the  Legion remained open for the  afternoon. It was a very  pleasant gathering and the  clubhouse had a whole new  look with the latest in a series  of renovations ��� new chairs  and carpeting circling the  dance floor.

The benefits of the  Sunshine Coast Women's  Program offering, "Body  Newness" are beginning to  be felt by the women, over  fifty, who are enjoying weekly exercise sessions, both at  Halfmoon Bay and at Gibsons.  Both classes have enlarged  as word of mouth reached  more and more women.  As we near the end of our  first series and discuss plans  for the upcoming months,  it has been suggested that we  invite any over-fifty ladies  who might be interested to  join a group to drop in and  have a look at what we are  doing.

I describe "Body Newness"  as different from other types  of exercise because it is  based on thinking and feeling  rather than on conventional  calisthenics.  When I was asked to explain  the course, I said: "I want to  get together hesitant older  women who know, inside  themselves, that they can feel  more alert, alive, warm,  gentle and happy within  themselves, but who may not  feel up to excessive exercise,  or that they may be expected  too much of and therefore  fail."  In "Body Newness" we  become newly aware, through  conversational investigation,  of the simplest of body  actions (which often happen  automatically and without  appreciation,) such as: noting  how one relaxes and expands  when feeling warm - or  tightens and protects the body  when feeling cold. We lift,  push, hold and carry things,  getting in touch with the  muscles as we think about the  actions.  I have said that I want to  dismiss the fear some people  have of making bold, inventive  changes in their thinking  about themselves, so that they  can enjoy the very most of  their physical capabilities,  now, and increasingly more as  the years go on.  We have a few more  Mondays at Welcome Beach  Hall on Redrooffs Road,  10:00 'til 11:00 a.m. and we  work at the same hour on  Wednesdays at Harmony  Hall, Harmony Lane, in  Gibsons.

Elves elect lady president  The Elves Club held their  annual general meeting at the  home of Walter and Marlyn  Zalischuk, Port Mellon. Walter Zalischuk retired as  president of the Club, but assured the members he would  be in there pitching as usual  when Elftime rolls around  again. Thanks Wally for a job  well done. Last year Wally and  Marlyn worked all night long  selecting gifts and toys for  the hampers.  To fill the vacancy left by  Wally, the members elected  their first Lady President,  Lorna W. Chalmers of Sechelt.  Best Wishes Lorna, we feel  you will be a real asset to the  club.  Business was discussed as  usual; the main issue raised  was, due to the lack of persons  to fill responsible positions  in the Club, it was decided  different methods will have to  be employed this year to see  the project through. After the  meeting was adjourned, the  members enjoyed refreshments, especially the beautiful  cake done in an Elf decor.  For those not in the know,  the Elves Club is an unselfish  and concerted effort by the  entire Community to see that  no does without at Christmastime, The Elves assist during  the year as well when they  hear of a needy case. Last year  they made up and distributed  128 food hampers, including  gifts and toys, from Port  Mellon to Egmont. The Elves  welcome new members to  their club.

Be that as it may, the  study ot English is rewarding,  paying great dividends as one  becomes more and more aware  of the burden of thought every  word may convey, lt has been  said that English is the easiest  language to learn and the most  difficult of all to master.  Basic English was devised in  wartime. It consisted of S50  words for international use.  and quite accurately conveyed  information. Humorists had a  field day. translating well  known poems into Basic English. Shakespeare's Autolycus  Song in the original reads: Jog  on, jog on the footpath way/  And merrily take the stile-a, A  merry heart goes all the day,,'  Your sad tires in a mile-a,  Richard L. Greene, re-writing  it in Basic English, came up  with: Run on. run on, in a way  causing shaking motion on the  sidewalk And in a bright way  take a grip of the steps so  placed that persons but not  animals may get over or  through-a; A happy heart  goes all thc day, Your unhappy  T"  worm, womter, wormesl   ?  daniadown  I  Cti.u Winitt (Mi i*)y with j Dimtdown conlinf Mil  quril. turn flonn Me Mil lo Utt tncigy ind b( dee D>  Irtrous bcdmiling foimi Att iDout out uniQtte  guiivttN oi wirmlh We hm i cwsuni _ eipjnang  KlKUCn ol_t.ign.tn pttmiptcii ptrciKt UK) ftiullmj  Thf flftorjtinj po��it)ihlm tit ftidlfSi  Mjiehmg O'tae utvice iwUBit Piwse wnuci us lot  out coiom biocnun ind class Cmidi _t.\n list - Buy  CttMin  :tslff'     '������"���     H  M daniadown quits ltd.  %|E    Vancouver BC EstaOiisnM 196'  r     tUMMM INTHIOKS  NOITH HO. t KIWANIS WAV  piHom. _______    .  becomes in need of rest in 5,280  feet-a./ (Now wc would have to  go one step further and convert  it to metric.)  Mark Twain once said that  the difference between thc right  word and the almost-right  word is just the difference  between lightning and the  lightning bug. Every editor of  every newspaper in the country  would utter a fervent "amen".  English is an ever-changing  language. Beautiful words such  as "gay" suddenly take on an  ugly meaning. "Intercourse"  can no longer be used as simple  social communication, dealings between individuals. A  story about Oberon, King of  thc Fairies, will have a class in  convulsions even though humour is not intended. But new  words spring up like daisies in a  meadow. Radio, television, yoyo, jeep are new words which  describe new things. Some  words are used to death, among  them fabulous, neat, cool.  When a word is overused, its  impact is lost forever.  What is being described  here'.'"An affection, peculiar to  mankind...the eyebrows arc  raised about the middle, and  drawn down next to the nose:  the eyes are almost shut; the  mouth opens and shows thc  teeth, the corners ofthe mouth  being drawn back and raised  up; thc checks seem puffed up  and almost hide the eyes; the  face is usually red. and nostrils  open and the eyes wet." Pain?  Torture'.' No, that's the way the  first edition of the Encyclo-  pocdia Britannica. which came  out a little over 200 years ago,  described laughter.  Danny Kaye is a master of  English, putting words through  their paces in a manner both  strange and. hilarious. "She  stood upon the balcony inexplicably mimicing his hiccupping and amicably welcoming him in."

Unforgettable and delightful!  Sometimes young writers  put undue stress on long,  unusual words. Hence: "Scintillate, scintillate, asteroid  minific Fain would I fathom  the nature specific/ Loftily  poised in the ether capacious/  Strongly resemblimg a gem  carbonaceous" can only be  viewed as a useless rendition of  the beautiful and simple  "Twinkle, twinkle little star..."  Language comes naturally,  and changes with the times. No  scholar would seek to convey  his thoughts to modern folk  using the language which  Shakespeare used so well. To  read Shakespeare requires  literary skill, and it cannot be  copied. Churchill, a writer, also  wafr.a supreme orator. In My  Early Vears he wrote: "I am  biased in favour of boys  learning English; then I would  let the clever ones learn Latin as  an honour and Greek as a  treat." Some honour! Some  treat! Another writer remarked  that the Romans would never  have found time to conquer the  world if they had been first  obliged to learn Latin.  Of all the time wasters  selected by curriculum committees to inflict upon long-  suffering youth, the study of  The Novel is the most suspect.  Novels are meant to be read  and enjoyed, not dissected and  interpreted until thc students  gag with loathing. Silas Marncr  -Thc Black Arrow-The Lady  of the Lake-all have come and  gone and now we present The  Lord of the Flies, One Flew  Over the Cuckoo's Nest, To  Kill a Mockingbird...Since  students are expected to write  essays, would it not seem  logical to present them books  of excellent essays rather than  novels, especially in Junior  Secondary'.' You can often see a  version of a novel in film, but  essays? No. You read them, and  become intimate with fascinating words.  All words do not fascinate.  What the radical feminists have  done to chairman (chairperson) is bad enough; but when  they plan to do to mankind,  mandarin, manikin, gamesmanship, manward, manual  has not been revealed. "How  beauteous personkind is!/ O  brave new world/ That hath  such people in it." Shakespeare  always has the last word in a  literary essay!

Extensive alterations,  painting, decorating, et cetera  are currently being conducted  by a group of young people  known as "Katimavik", or,  meeting place, in Canadian  form. And indeed a wonderful  meeting place. A Federal  grant has made possible the  services of these folk.  Supervision and physical  assistance is directed by Mr.  Hottner, with involvement by  Garry Kent and Dave Helem  in offering direction respecting changes. All are Museum  members. Included in such  changes will be construction of  Elphie students at  work next week  a large bench or display table  at window height, thus providing for greater display and  better viewing of artifacts.  Washrooms also have been  subjected to a decorative  touch.  The Museum Executive  is highly pleased with donations received from visitors  during the past tourist season.  Such funds have rendered  usefulness for purchasing of  materials currently being  used.  Nevertheless, due to these  renovations, the Museum  does not retain adequate  funds for purchase of a good'  domestic type vacuum cleaner, which in fact is urgently  needed. Perhaps some resident may possess a second  vacuum cleaner of this type, in  good running order, and  would consider donating it to  your local Museum. Such consideration would be deeply  appreciated by the Executive.  Call 885-3171.

Fifty grade ten students  from Elphinstone Secondary  School may be seen working in  Sunshine Coast businesses in  the week of November 24 to  28. The Work Experience  placement is a key part of the  Career Education program for  grade 10 students who are  faced with major educational  decisions in this year.  For the students, the  program is intended to give a  career area of potential interest, and for some students,  a first experience in a job  setting. For the employer, it  is an opportunity to experience the energy and willingness of our community's  young people and to assist the  school in the career education  process.  Mr. Harry Turner piloted  the program last year, and  found the co-operation of local  businesses to be primarily  responsible for its success.  This year the program is being  co-ordinated by Mr. Bill Forst  and will for the first time  involve all 100 grade 10's  by splitting the program.  The 50 students not placed  this month will participate in  May.  The co-operation of our  schools with the business  community is an expanding  trend which can only benefit  the community as a whole.

Although it fell to  the populations "inner" Gibsons to decide the Issue, it was a thing,  of great concern to hundreds of people residing just outside and  even far beyonS the boundaries of this Village.  I believe it wakthis issue and God's gift of beautiful weather that  caused 618, or 63.8% of eligible voters to turn out and express their  views. 77.9% of th^m said 'Yes' to Sunday and Holiday Shopping. I  just hope that thi^ matter will not be raised again next year in  Provincial politics fly the force of pressure groups.  Elsewhere in the Province, places like Surrey failed to pass their  referendum. There, you will note they had a poor turn-out at the  polls, and the issue bacame more confused by divisions within the  business establishment as well as other power groups. One  wonders how people in Surrey, and the people here could be so  different in their viewpoint, except that they are being fed  information that is eithe| confusing or wrong.  Locally, many people came to me to ask if it was true that being  open Sunday would merely spread out the same available business  over seven days instead of six. I can't speak tor those who were  peddling that line. I only know this:  1. It pays us - it doesn't cost.  2. The people want it.  3. It makes sense to provide a wanted service.  4. There is nothing un-Christian about the occupation of selling  food on Sunday.  We started business in Gibsons on November 15,1970. Ten years  later to the day the people of this community���not only came out in  force to support our request to continue providing Sunday and  Holiday Shopping, but they gave me overwhelming support at the  Aldermanic polls.  To all who support and believe in us, my grateful thanks. I know  full well I will never be able to please everyone. I will do my best for  the community���as a whole even if, at times, I may have to go  against the wishes of some who may have voted for me.  My thanks also to those defeated candidates, Bob Maxwell, and  Benoit LePage for a clean well-run campaign. They, too, helped to  get out the voters.  4*  1. Cut out this Coupon  2.

They "use the municipally  provided services without  contributing to the tax base"  is the recurring complaint.  An alderman was quoted  some years ago that we "even  use thc Village street lights".  Now lhat may conjure up an  appealing picture of the poor  emigres from Outer Gower or  Beyond Hopkins coming into  ihe village after dark to  huddle together under the  street lights to read the newspaper and darn the kids  socks, but we really aren't that  bushed, in fact, in some cases  Ullage services have lagged  hcliind those in the Regional  ureas, and we do even have  street lights, individual and  personal ones if we so wish.  Apart from this nonsense, I  wish someone could tell me  what services provided by the  Village we outsiders use but  do not pay our share for?  Except for the swimming pool,  which Gibson's after all decided to build on their own,  having earlier refused to even  trite"part in a district tt-.  creational referendum.  Gibson's most efficient Fire  lighters will come to our  asri stance and we gladly  pa. almost 3 mills towards  Iheir support. The District  also 1 believe, contributes  lo liie Library. Yes, we do  most of our shopping in  Gibson's, thereby I suppose  using the roads and the 2.37  sidewalks, but if the Village  would rather we didn't, I'm  sure Sechelt would welcome  us and not complain about our  use of their road systems.  When you come to think of  it the residents of the adjoining communities do contribute  in a very essential way to the  /illage. Without us, could you  support such a wide variety  and number of stores, restaurants, gas stations, shopping malls? Without us would  you have such well-equipped  schools and playing fields?  Without us coming in to swim,  could the pool even meet its  payroll much less offer such  a variety of programmes for  just about everyone?  But you say, in these days  of escalating costs we need a  bigger tax base and if you  came in with us we could do  more. Maybe, but any business man will tell you that in  thinking of expansion you  have to balance very carefully  your increased business a-  gainst what its going to cost  you in extra salaries and  upkeep etc. Bigger isn't  necessarily better, after you  pass that optimum size,  bigger only produces more  bureaucracy, more outlay,  more headaches and less  efficiency.  In the case of the Village,  incorporation of the outside  communities would provide an  increase in revenue but  against that must be calculated the escalating costs of  providing services and maintaining those already in place  and the larger payroll for both  office and outdoor staff to  handle the extra responsibilities and the space to  house that expansion.  If Gibson's, like Sechelt, is  dazzled by the seemingly  generous offer of the Provincial Government of maybe  a million dollars a year  grants to cover the initial  costs of assimilation this too  bears careful scrutiny. All that  glistens is not gold and it's  already 25 years since CD.  Howe coined the phrase  "What's a million?" and its  worth has greatly diminished  since then. That four million  grant is not a golden egg  which can be invested to  produce a supply of such eggs  in perpetuity, once it's used  up, it's gone, but the cost of  services to a larger less  efficiently served area is still  there plus extras such as  police, welfare, etc. To put  that figure in some sort of  perspective, the School Board  is looking at a budget of  something over nine million  dollars for the next fiscal  year.  Although the adjacent areas  to the Village have most of the  basic services they need and  incorporation with the Village  offers little in return for  higher taxes, we obviously do  have an interest in the continued prosperity of the  Village. So, if expansion isn't  the answer to thc need for  more revenue, what other  possibilities are there and  what do other communities in  similar circumstances do?  It would be foolish to  suggest there are easy and  ready-made answers, but perhaps this is as good a time as  any to look at the assets the  present community has inherited and make an assessment of the talents and skills  it represents.  Gibson's, I think, will find  it has an untouched resource  which can come up with the  sort of original and creative  ideas it needs to ensure  continued prosperity, engage  the support ofthe surrounding  communities and without spoiling the natural environment.  Surely we can work together  without such parochial nonsense of who lives where?

Twenty-six members  were present. The minutes of  the October meeting were reid  by Secretary Pearl Dove, and  Treasurer Violet Harris read  the Treasurer's report.  Secretary Pearl Dove read a  letler of acceptance from Mrs.  Betty Patterson, Area Representative of Ihe British  Columbia Association of Hospital Auxiliaries accepting the  invitation to attend our Aloha  Luncheon on behalf of herself  and Secretary Mrs. Yvonne  Wheeler. This will add a little  extra 'panache' to our luncheon and they will be made to  fed most welcome by our  group.  All our volunteer groups  continue to work diligently.  The Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary volunteers to the Extended  Care Unit at St. Mary's Hospital hosted the October birthday party for E.C.U. residents  on Monday. October 20, 1980.  Member Lclc Comrie convened the luncheon for Mrs.  Mutter, celebrating her 102nd  birthday.  After speaking with members who had attended the  Annual Area meeting of the  Lower Mainland British Columbia Association of Hospital  Auxiliaries held on October 8,  1980, il was concluded that the  meeting was a great success.  189 volunteers from 19 Auxili  aries were present and topics in  discussion were varied. One of  particular interest was thc  education of patients regarding  pre-operativc and post-operative procedures. The stress  element and how to combat  this, in both adults and children. Also, in as far as the  volunteers are concerned, how  to place members in jobs to  which they are best suited, and  are therefore happiest.  For new members and those  who have not so far used the  facility of the Christmas Card  fund, the Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary invites you to make a  donation of any amount, to the  Bank of Montreal, The Bank of  Commerce, or the Royal Bank  of Canada, Gibsons, in lieu of  cards to friends on the Peninsula. All names will then be  published in the local papers.  Member Any Blain will be in  charge ofthe'Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary Christmas Card  Fund'.

George W. Inglis  We are moving today, in  Canada's Christian churches,  toward some form of Christian  church unity which would  reinstate the community of  followers of Christ as a loving  global family, from whence it  sprung,  ! True, the early church was  much less global, since it took  in a very limited geographical,  ethnic, racial and cultural  diversity, but the early church  was nevertheless unified in  L.the one hope that belongs to  your call, one Lord, one faith,  one baptism, one God and  father of us all," as Paul put it,  in his letter to the Ephesians,  which has been understood by  scholars to have been a general  letter of instructions to new  Churches joining thc fold.  | It was man, with his diversity  of understanding, belief and  interpretation of scripture that  created the divided church,  although the early division was  largely betwen east and west,  and had some cultural and  racial undertones.  ;��� It wasn't until the 16th  tsntury Protestant Reformation stimulated by Luther,  Calvin and Swingli and precipitated by many other theologians and churchmen, that  the rift between Roman Catholic and Protestant became a  chasm.  i One of the volatile effects of  the Reformation was to place  the Bible into the hands ofthe  people, in the language of the  people, and to start the movement toward making the Bible  available to all who wished to  read it.  It was Martin Luther's  contention that anyone could  read the Bible with understanding, provided he or she  called on the assistance of  God's Holy Spirit.  One thing Luther seemed to  forget in this statement was the  fact that he, himself, had been  trained in law and theology and  hltf b*# fill wdained tad'  practicing priest for many years  before he ' made the simple  discovery that salvation came  through grace, by faith alone.  This it, nol an attempt to  deny the possibility of a  devoted believer arriving at the  correct interpretation of the  gospel, when aided by the Holy  Spirit, even if the believer is a  simple and unversed person.  But it is a cautionary word,  pointing out the historical  reality that many atrocities  have been inflicted on others by  individuals or groups in the  name of God, the God of  mercy, love and justice.  These cruelties, completely  alien to the nature of God, were  largely perpetrated in good  faith through faulty interpretation, and not just by nuts, or  cranks, as some persons in the  comfortable pews are apt to  believe.  The difficulty in assessing  interpretation as to its validity,  is earth-shaking, and even the  most diligent of scholars seem  to be capable of wide diversions  of opinion on the biblical story.  Add to this the mysterious  nature of the content of the  Bible, since we are, after all,  dealing with the supernatural,  and a God who is infinite, and  we have some idea of the  problem facing us when we  seek to unify our churches.  To begin with, many sincere  and devoted believers talk with  great enthusiasm about ecumenism, when, in fact, they are  voicing hopes for a state of  belief and worship which spells  unity, not ecumenism.  Ecumenism if the act of  various denominations joining  forces to face a common  problem, but retaining their  doctrinal integrity.  The foundation of modern  ecumenism came about under  these circumstances, when  Baptists, Anglicans and Methodists in London's impoverished East End banded together to fight poverty and  sickness.  The work done was a landmark in social history and it  was taken over eventually by  General Booth and his Salvation Army.  About 100 years later, the  world's missionaries decided it  would be much more practical,  ,,)J>.Par^ij)it.tegospdtpt|ie.rar..  tornirs 8f ^MrwdrH; -ttt der  emphasize denomination and  work together in the common  cause of helping others to a  better way of life.  The organization they formed eventually became the  World Council of Churches, in  1948, and is still working to  bring about ecumenicity.  Unity, however, demands  the acceptance of common  theological beliefs, and this  means much less to the grassroots Christians than it does to  the church's hierarchy and  theologians.  To be fair to the higher  echelons ofthe church, we must  remember they are sensitive to  denominational issues, and to  the many years of intense study  and prayer that created the  denominational creeds and  confessions, and the blood that  was spilt in attaining thc  recognition of the denominations as acceptable arenas of  worship.  The church around the world  still wrestles with the problems  of unity in Christ, but it must  first solve the dilemma of how  to induce unity in man.  Seen through secular eyes,  the church has very little  chance for this unity in a world  which is torn by constant strife  and bloodshed, and harassed  by greed, affluence, starvation  and manmade disasters.  Seen through the eyes of  faith, however, it is quite  proper to look forward to the  world being like the city which  Abraham looked for: "...the  city which has foundations,  whose builder and maker is  God." (Hebrews 11:10).  But the bricks and mortar  which erect this global city of  faith will have to be undivided  and of one mind, from the  foundation to the roof.

In  total, 16 games were played  with our curlers winning 13 of  these contests. Needless to  say, the North Vancouver  curlers were quite shocked  by these results and are  looking forward to a return exchange trip sometime in the  new year. A social get-together followed the day of  curling with the North Van  curlers hosting our team to  a luncheon. A welcome  meal after a long day of  competition!  Many of our younger junior  curlers went on this trip as  many of our older curlers were  working that weekend. Special  mention goes to the fine  curling of Andrew  Tietzen,  Andy Solinsky, Lisa Krygs-  veld, Brad Dorais and Glen  Fisher. Well done curlers!  The next junior inter-club  competition sees our teams  travel to Richmond on Friday,  November 28. This is a return  exchange for an earlier competition in October which saw  Richmond defeat our teams  on points. Our curlers will be  looking to improve their  results on this coming trip.  Other trips being planned  involve inter-club competitions with Abbotsford and  Powell River. December 12,  13 and 14 will see our teams in  North Van at the Hollyburn  Curling Club competing in the  Pacific Coast Curling Association's Junior Playdowns.

Ontario was a  "penny pinching" outfit and  lhal many of thc wiser and  -more experienced lumberjacks  would not even consider working for them, but what was a  man to do? I had tarried at my  friend Jensen's place in Wood-  rol'fc that Fall, waiting for thc  first frosts before hiring for the  camps, so that when I finally  did get around to il there were  lew openings left and, seeing  lhal I was broke and had been  since my last wild blow-out in  Hull on my 21st birthday. I  could delay il no longer. So I  signed on al Cyr's and ihe next  day got off thc train at Brent, a  M hisile stop station on the main  line from Ottawa to North Bay.  Ihis year the company were,  as they had been for many years  past, culting timber in Algonquin Park under licence  'Irom the Provincial Govcrn-  fment and thc camp to which I  I had been assigned was winding  up operations before moving  further into ihe park. I had  been hired as a "swamper" or  trail culler on the strength of  rny having had previous experience the Winter before.  .Whether ihis could be considered a promotion is debatable as the work was even  harder then working on thc  "main road" under a "Buck  [Beuvct". To add to the hardship. Ihe gang I "swamped" for  was given the lask of falling a  stand of limber al Ihe end of a  lake three and a hall miles from  camp so lhat. in addition to  stt inging an axe all day. we had  a seven miles' walk lo and fro.  I he wages were the same asthe  ��inter prior. $30.00 per monlh  lake it or leave il. Il would be  repetitive to describe Ihe camp  and thc general conditions  prevailing as they were almost  identical   wilh   those   up  al  Kipawa Lake. The bunkhouse  was the same, the food even  plainer. The staples of sowbelly, beans and prunes were  our daily !m but, being closer  to civilization, we did from  time to time receive a shipment  of fresh vegetables which  relieved the monotony of our  diet somewhat.  There was one difference  however that could be noted.  This time there was more  English spoken in camp as the  crew were about evenlydivided  between French Canadians and  those with an English or  Scandinavian background and  surprisingly there were quite a  few Indians workinglhcrc. Our  foreman MacRac, although  hot pure Indian, could be  described us "Metis", as1 was the  Buck Beaver and many of the  "sawyers" or fallers, as Ihcy are  called out here on the west  coast.  By far thc most interesting  man in camp, in my estimation  at least, was Anton thc bull-  cook. He was an old man in his  seventies, gnarled and bent like  an ancient oak but possessed  nevertheless of un awe inspiring  strength. I would not go so far  as to say that thc other men  were afraid of him, but he was  treated with a certain deference  and respect and that was not to  be wondered at considering his  past. He had served a full-term  life sentence at St. Vincent de  Paul Penitentiary for not one  murder, but two. both occurring during a drunken brawl in  Hull. Quebec and it was  rumoured that a large part of  his time in confinement had  been spent "in thc hole" or in  solitary, as it is more politely  described. What he had done or  whal he had been however was  "water under the bridge" as far  as I was concerned. He was  now an extremely sensitive and  gentle man wiih a passionate  love for all living Ihings and he  was very kind 10 me. He carved  me a pipe oul of a maple burl  and presented illume when the  YOUR AUTOPLAN  CENTRE^  Taking care of  all your Real Estate Needs  Seaside Plaza Evenings Call  886-2000    Norm Peterson Dennis Suveges  886-9121    886-2607(Res )or 886-7264 (Res.)  camp broke up in the Spring  and it was a thing of exquisite  beauty. His only tool a jack-  knife, he had fashioned two  nude girls with long flowing  hair kneeling back to back and  holding the bowl between  them. It had taken him not only  hours to carve but also to  polish the natural grained  wood till it shone and then he  had fitted it with a vulcanite  stem from a broken pipe. I was  inordinately proud of it but,  sad to have to relate, it was not  in my possession very long, lt  was stolen from my room at  Cyr's Hotel shortly after my  checking in there when ihe  camp broke up in thc Spring.  Algonquin Park always has  been notorious for ils wolf  population and the winter I  spent there was no exception.  Wc saw little of them other  than tracks, during thc Fall  months, but as soon as Winter  set in with its heavy snowfalls  and freezing temperatures, they  were very much in evidence. 1  have never been able to ascertain why. particularly when thc  moon was approaching fullness, wc would awaken in the  bunkhouse to their spine-  tingling howls. In the morning  we would, on our way to work  out at that lonely lake, see  where, following our horses'  trail, their tracks would stop a  short distance from the camp  just as soon as they could smell  the smoke from burning fires.  From time to time could be  seen also evidence of their  predatory existence, trampled  and bloodstained patches in thc  otherwise virgin white snow,  with here and Ihere a few hairs  or an antler or hoof to distinguish what had once been a  deer or a moose.  I had been brought up and  laught never to question the  ways and works of Almighty  God and I faintly remembered  the bit about "not a sparrow  falleth". Nonetheless 1 could  not help wondering if perhaps  He could not have, in His  infinite wisdom and compassion, created a little less  cruel and rapacious world. Was  it always io be the law of the  tooth and Ihe claw - thc  survival of Ihe fittest and thc  weak to thc wall? Somehow in  my humble opinion there was  something wrong here bul I  have never, in spite of my  wanderings and searching,  been able to find out just what  it was.

Details of salmon troll  restrictions announced  C. Wayne Shinners, A/  Director-General, Pacific Region, has announced details  concerning salmon troll restrictions, following Fisheries  Minister Romeo LeBlanc's  policy statement October 28,  1980.  Fishermen will be required  to elect to troll inside the  Strait of Georgia, or outside,  when applying for their 1981  salmon licence renewal. This  choice will be made for the  1981 season and will not be  reversible. After 1981, the two  area troll licence will be  reviewed.  The following gear conditions will apply:  Inside Areat  This licence will permit  vessels to troll in Areas 12-19  inclusive. No other salmon  fishing by these vessels will be  permitted.  Outside Aran  Any vessel which has not  elected for the inside troll  licence will be prohibited  from trolling in the Strait of  Georgia. Other salmon fishing  opportunities for these vessels  will remain unchanged.  The inside troll licence will  be in effect for the 1981  season, i.e. April 15th to Sep-  On the  Seafood Platter  byChaleChak  It is getting close to the time  of year that I used to plan a  trip to a good location for  gathering oysters. Some fifteen years ao they were very  plentiful in Howe Sound and  many other inlets and bays up  the Sunshine Coast. The  Pacific Oyster is not native  to our coast but was brought in  from Japan by commercial  oyster growers in the form of  spat (tiny oysters) attached  to old oyster shells which were  placed on the registered beds  where they were left to mature  into market-sized oysters. In  1958 the water temperature  warmed up and became ideal  for a major spawning and wild  oysters spread over wide areas  of Georgia Strait. Since then  the water has not warmed up  sufficiently to repeat the  population explosion of 1958  and they are on the decline.  The best time for picking  and eating oysters is from  mid-November until mid-May.  In cold water (under 50  degrees or 55 degrees F),  the oysters can remain firm  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FURNITURE  886-2812  -J  and tasty well into June. From  late June on to late October  the oyster changes its chemical composition and the  flavour of the meat changes  considerably. It has a much  stronger taste with a distinct  iodine flavour and remains  very poor in flavour during the  spawning period.  Another factor affecting  taste is the type of food the  oyster has been eating. An  oyster gathers nutrition by  pumping sea-water through  its body, filtering out the tiny  plankton as it passes through.  Some types of plankton will  give the oyster an oily taste.  When sunlight, proper water temperature, and nutrient  content are present, plankton  will sometimes grow explosively, often turning the  water brown or red for miles.  These are called blooms, some  are quite harmless. A "Red  Tide" is one form of plankton  bloom which is highly toxic  and this summer has seen our  area closed to gathering of  bivalves and this closure is  still in effect except in commercial areas which are  inspected by the authorities.

THE OFFER'S VALID FROM OCTOBER 28TH. 16  Coast News, November 18, 1980  "A man in the hook"  Carl's  corner  In search of a career  by Carl Chrismas  COUGAR BROWN  Part III  1 awoke next morning to the  beat of wind-driven rain on the  tar paper roof of the cabin.  The temperature had moderated somewhat but the change  from frost to rain would bring  us the first snow ofthe season.  It wouldn't last more than a  few hours as the rain would  wash it away almost as fast  as it came. It was too early  for our winter snow, but oh,  it was going to be miserable to  work in.  Unlike thc condemned man,  I did Not eat a hearty breakfast that morning. 1 was  worried about the responsibility I had taken on of going  up that tree. Brown didn't  help much when he said,  "Not the best kinda day for  climbin'  a  tree,  eh  Bert?"  I caught the corner of a wink  when he glanced Bert's way  and 1 waited anxiously for  his agreement.  "Naw. Il ain't too bad. Does  make things a might slippery  up there but the kid'll be so  busy he won't have time to  notice thc rain."  My spirits fell. I suddenly  realized that I was afraid.  I wasn't sure if it was dread of  physical injury or a fear of  chickening out at the last  minute. But it was too late  now. I had painted myself into  a corner with my heroic  dreams of becoming one of a  group of exalted 'high-  climbers'. Right at that  moment I would have been  happy to stick with truck  driving as a career!  Brown seemed to know  what was in my mind. As hard  as I tried, I could not control  the trembling of my hands as  I buckled on the spurs. My  Angers became thumbs and  my movements clumsy. After  a third attempt to throw the  rope around the tree and  catch the end, Brown had  decided" it' was time for a  lecture.  "Listen, kid. It's only going  to be half as tough as you  think it is. You're goin' to  walk up, thread the end of this  little rope through the block,  and send the end down to us.  We'll pull the strawline  through, send it back up with  the pass chain on the end, and  you can ride 'er all the way  back down. Now take your  time  and  you'll  be  O.K!"  By the time he had finished  his instructions, each move  acted out in pantomime with  slow, easy motions of hands  and arms, my confidence had  returned. All I had to do was  complete the motions as he  had so aptly described them  and the job would be done. My  fate lay between Cougar  Brown here on the ground,  and God, somewhere up there  in those storm-tossed heavens.   I  couldn't  go wrong!  I learned fast on that climb.  Every move had to be the right  one. Like flying, rigging is an  unforgiving business. Your  first mistake can be your last  one. Crossing over the guylines went just as Brown  predicted. The girth of the  tree was such that I could  reach around to hang on. With  one leg over a guy and a firm  grip on another, I was able to  slip the riggers knot, re-tie  above the guys, and stand up  to reach the block. In moments, the rope was threaded  and slack poured back down to  the ground. My job -vas  finished and 1 had time to take  a breather and have a look  around.  Bert had been right. The  'kid' had been too busy to  notice the rain. I was soaked  but so warm that my wool shirt  For all your Carpets  Aroosheen  carpet Cleaning  NO SoaP BJJJH*  m*1  **��*  was steaming. I was glad of  the rest.  The view from the top was  awe-inspiring! Although the  day was stormy, the clouds  were high and wind torn.  To the north I could see  Nanaimo, its harbour and the  C.P. Ferry. To the south I  could see Ladysmith perched  on its hill, Comox Logging  booming ground, smoke and a  puff of steam from the 'locie'  as he spotted a fresh load  under thc ginpolc for dumping  in thc saltchuck. And thirty-  odd miles to thc cast, under a  heavy overcast of factory  effluence and sawmill burner  smoke, lay Vancouver. One of  thc culprits would be Rat  Portage Lumber, burning refuse from logs that began their  journey through the mill  from old John's jack-ladder  crew.  It had been a few years  since 1 had seen my Swedish  friend. I wondered if he still  walked his booms or if he had  traded in his calks for a  fleecy cloud from which to  keep an eye on this earthly  scene. And if he was watching  right now with a twisted grin  as one of his protege's made  good. Just in case, I tossed a  wink and salute to a passing  thunderhead.  A shout from Perse on the  ground brought me back to the  present. They were ready to  send up the passchain for my  ride to the ground. A few  moments later the chain was  around my butt, the hook was  snapped in the ring and I was  ready to travel. Just as I was  about to give the signal to  lower away, I remembered an  expression that Rat Portage  John had taught me, and from  the ground I could see the  flash of two wry smiles as I  shouted "Down easy. A man  in the hook"!  To be continued  YOUR AUTOPLAN  CENTRE  Sechelt Rod & Gun  Turkey Shoot, Bake Sale and  Garage Sale - at the Clubhouse on Sunday, November  30, beginning at noon.  Annual Game Banquet - It  was decided to postpone  the banquet until January or  February and to consider  holding it at the clubhouse  this year. It has become  increasingly difficult to get  game meat, with the same  members having to deplete  their own stocks and hall  rentals are going up. It was  felt we could have a very  happy time in our own facilities.  Report on Salmon Enhancement ��� Pat Mulligan reports  that the box made last year  has been moved upstream in  Flume Creek and on higher  ground to avoid the problems  encountered last year at  freshet times. A second box  has been made for coho eggs  and it is hoped that this will  be installed in Wakefield  Creek. There are plenty of  fish in Roberts Creek and the  Fisheries Officer has been  contacted to supervise the  stripping of eggs for our boxes  around the end ofthe month.  Marty's Report - $232.00 was  made at the last Garage and  Bake Sale and Marty wishes to  thank all those who brought  sale goods and all the ladies  who supplied baking.

It is used:  1) To hang Christmas decorations. 2) In dental hygiene.  Before going any further I  feel this topic is worth discussing.  To use the floss, hold about  18" of floss between the  fingers. To insert the floss  between the teeth gently  swing it back and forth  until it slips through the  contact area. It should then be  carried to slightly below the  area where resistance is met.  Now move the floss up and  down the tooth surface to  break up accumulated plaque.  What is plaque? It is a combination of sugar and bacteria  which equals acid. Plaque  causes tooth decay and gum  disease.  Once sugar is eaten (refined  carbohydrates) plaque begins  to form and after 24 hours  begins to act on tooth enamel  and gum tissue. Therefore for  good dental health as well as  good health in general, eat  natural basic foods avoiding  empty calories and refined  carbohydrates. Read the labels of packaged foods. You  will find very few without  sugar (even soups) because  sugars add flavour and preserve food.  There are other factors  involved in good oral hygeine.  1) Fluoride drops or tablets  should be given to newborn  infants and continued until  age 12. The pure fluoride  drops are cheaper and more  effective because the dose  can be regulated more effectively than a multi-vitamin/  fluoride combination preparation.  Fluoride taken internally  while teeth are forming makes  the enamel stronger and  therefore more resistant to  tooth decay.  If fluoride is painted on the  teeth, rinsed on with a mouth  rinse or brushed on with  toothpaste it adds up to an  outer layer of enamel that is  stronger.  2) Disclosing tablets are  available to demonstrate to  the user where plaque is  accumulating on the teeth  surface. Made of a colouring  material they are chewed and  swished in the mouth and  then the plaque is made  evident by a distinct pink stain  which is readily brushed off  leaving the teeth plaque-  free.  3) Visits to the dentist  are important to detect problems when they are manageable, less expensive and easily  done. Don't wait for toothaches, as gum disease actually  remains pain-free until it is  too late and teeth become  loose and must be pulled.  Helpful hints.  1) Smoking is not a healthy  activity for the mouth. It  irritates the lips and delicate  tissues of the oral cavity  (gums, cheek, tongue and  palate).  2) Many people get a  deposit on their teeth called  calculus. It is made of calcium  from saliva that precipitates  out in an alkaline chemical  solution in the mouth. It  deposits into plaque and  therefore food debris is incorporated and make it bulkier It can get under the gum  line and begin to cover the  roof of the tooth. Plaque and  bacterial activity produce irritants which break down the  attachment fibre of tooth to  bone and thus the tooth  support is undermined.  Solution: Get teeth properly  scaled once every six months.  3) Gum disease is often  the cause of halitosis or bad  breath. A soft brush, dental  floss and a good scaling and  polishing at a dental office is  usually all it takes to clear it  up. Mouth washes are effective for 30 seconds only,  4) A soft toothbrush must be  used at least once a day to  thoroughly clean the teeth  and massage the gums.  Because a brush can reach  only half of the tooth surfaces, dental floss must be  used between the teeth to  prevent cavities and gum  disease.  Dentistry today is preventative in orientation but  treatment is much easier and  with the new Government  Dental Plan Coverage, dental  care will be extended to many  more people.  Because dental hygiene is  so important, Gibsons Clinic  Pharmacy is offering toothbrushes with disclosing tab-  lets for 69$ this week.  Due to lack of space the  other 127 uses of dental  floss will not be discussed  today.  silent will's  istiere  885-5911  wharini. .  ^J\    GREAT SAVINGS!  ��4>0      Armstrong Super Solarian SALE!

Winter apples keep  well in a root cellar but can be  preserved by a variety of other  methods so that they can be  enjoyed all year.  Dried apples arc easy lo  prepare and provide a healthy  snack for thc little ones. I peel  thc apple and slice into rings  and string them through a cord.  Hang them over a source of  heat such as a stove and wail till  the apples arc leathery bul not  crisp. Store them in a moisture-  proof container but check  periodically for moisture because they could mould. You  could also dry the apples in the  oven set at about ISU degrees  leaving thc door open a crack  to release moisture as they dry.  Apple leather is a favourite  in my family. Simply cook  down apple sauce till it is fairly  thick. Spread on an oiled  cookie sheet and set in a warm  place till apples resemble shiny  leather. No sugar is needed but  the end product is sweet and  chewy. Next time you see  apples going to waste stop and  ask if they can be used. Maybe  thc occupants arc elderly and  would welcome someone picking the apples for a share ofthe  crop. We pick enough apples to  1111 a large box each year from  the Marine Park. These apples  have been passed by countless  people and arc still hanging on  the tree at season's end.  My grandfather was of  German origin and was proficient in the art of making  sauerkraut. Under thc kitchen  was a cellar which you gained  access to by a trap door in thc  floor. Upon opening the door  the pungent odour of the  sauerkraut leapt out to meet  you. I have yet to make a batch  that was as good as his,  probably because I always stop  the fermentation short when  guests' noses twitch at entering  the house. Sauerkraut is a good  way to preserve cabbage as very  little of the Vitamin C is lost.  Kraut is also high in lactic acid  which aids digestion and helps  kill harmful bacteria in the  digestive tract much in the way  yoghurt does.  Start by finding a container  made of glass or plastic or a  crock which is large enough to  hold at least five pounds of  cabbage. Cabbage is then sliced  thin, about the thickness of a  dime. Cut away the tough inner  core or your kraut will be  bitter. Sprinkle pickling salt  between the layers, about three  tablespoons for five pounds  will do. Tamp the cabbage  down well with a potato  masher or blunt instrument so  that thc juice will be released  and cover thc cabbage. If there-  is not enough juice in the  cabbage to do ihe (rick add a  little water with sail added.  Next cover the cabbage with  cheese cloth held down wilh a  plate thc si/e of the container.  Top this off with a heavy rock  so lhat thc cabbage is immersed  in thc liquid.  Leave the kraut to ferment in  a warm place. Fermentation  should he completed in six  weeks or so. You know it's  fermenting when the gas bubbles start to rise and you can  smell the fairly pickle-like  odour. Check the kraut every  day or so and wash the cloth  and skim off thc scum that  forms on top. Make sure that  Ihe cabbage remains covered  by ihe liquid and add water or  brine as needed. The top ofthe  kraut may turn dark hiu thc  rest should be fine. If you have  a cool place to keep it in the  crock, you will not need to can  the product, but if not, process  in quart jars for twenty minutes. Fermentation is completed when the gas bubbles  stop or when your friends stop  visiting you.  My favourite way to enjoy  kraul is with spareribs. Brown  thc spareribs and cook nil  almost done. Add aboul a  quart of kraut and steam for  ten minutes. Serve wilh boiled  potatoes and carrots with a lew  caraway seeds sprinkled on  top. Top it all off with a baked  apple or apple pic.

Their dreams of a labourless  Buchart are undiminished  but dormant until awakened  by the first snowdrop.  It must be remembered  that this column is not written  for purists but rather for the  hammock-hugging sloth who  likes to toss in the plants  and leave the major effort up  to Mother Nature... the  daydreamer who wants those  lovely yellow things that  blossomed all over behind the  compost three years ago (Aunt  Bessie would know the name)  and no, he could not be sure  during which month they  brought him such joy.  This same chap is the one  who leans blissfully over my  four foot high, shattering pink  Cosmos and compliments me  on my Marguerites. It is my  function to remind him and  others like him, when to plant  what will provide the most  colour for the lease possible  effort. Then every year I have  a new crop of beginners many  of whom turn out to become  excellent and vivid gardeners.  Most of the people I talk to  over the year are busy people  who prefer the flourishing of  colour and fragrance to the  snag and sting of nettles and  weeds.  I would like to thank the  many delightful readers and  neighbours who have generously shared their unexpected  treasures with us along with  their mind-boggling mutants.  I love them all: The generous  optimists who don't even see  the small bedraggled plant  in hand, perceiving instead  solid steaming vistas of future  colour... the ones who decide  to make cuttings on a blazing  day at high noon in the middle  of a heat wave (amazingly  many of them took)... those  who complain to Hydro about  wiping out our glorious wild  flowers... Gas stations who  try to outdo each other with  rockery and planter boxes...  dawning light (and heavy note  taking) in the glazed eye of  the beginner... I truly admire  the many whose ditches,  driveways and nether areas  behind the garage are blessed  with bloom and the thoughtful  who scatter seeds and plants  in driveways or stumps to  benefit the casual passersby.  I would like to thank the  helpful Gardening Gubs and  the long suffering plant shops  who try so hard to anticipate  next year's seeds but know  that we will find something  new to order, long after their  by Jack MacLeod  The November meeting of  the Sechelt Garden Club  elected its officers tor the  coming year - Tom Johnson,  President; Colin Cole Vice  President; Lou Wilson Secretary; Ola Arnold Treasurer  and the directors will be Sid  Roberts, Eric Huskins and  Jack MacLeod.  The meeting had three  highlights; one, the election  of officers, another was a  demonstration of flower arrangement by Patsy Baker of  Pentangle Plants who created  some splendid effects with  blooms and other related  garden material. The third  was the recognition of the  birthday of one of our most  respected and loved members,  Ena Harrold.  Ena didn't  announce  any  final ordering is done. (Please  get more Artichoke seeds).  We tend to forget how their  effort goes on all year and we  fall all over them, crabbing  in the too early spring. Life  depending on us, must necessarily be fraught with pitfalls,  so thank yon Quality Farm,  Casey's Country Garden, Mi-  lore at Halfmoon Bay and  Mack's Nursery on the highway.  All in all, it has been a  splended year for such lousy  weather. Here's to 1981 when  we just know everything will  be gorgeous.  Happy Gardening.  The third Women's Forum  will be held at the Wilson  Creek Community Hall at  6:00 p.m. on Monday, November 17th.  The Women's Forums are  gaining momentum. By the  end of the second gathering it  was felt that they must, for  sure, continue. Enthusiasm is  high. Everyone agreed that a  Pot-Luck supper would add to  the enjoyment of the evening,  and so it was decided to invite  women to bring one thing  to share during introductions,  before getting down to some  more serious discussion.  progressed from the original,  small, Core Committee to a  larger Advisory Committee  whose job it is, now, to reach  further into the community for  information pertaining to the  specific needs of women of all  ages, and to gather women  with skills of all kinds who  may be willing to share their  skills and experiences with  other women,  This seven year old male Norwegian Klkhound has been missing  from its home in Roberts' (reek since lasl Wednesday.

She enjoined us to  work well and related a story  of an executive body that was  sworn in, did a poor job and  got sworn at, things got worse  and got sworn out.

All week I've been getting Jone  ladder so that the salmon  could climb it. Lots of flsh  below the ladder waiting for  their turn.  The best news is that fish  are now running up Wakefield  Creek. This is probably the  first time in most people's  memory that this has happened. Our thanks to the  Department of Highways for  the installation of the new  culvert underneath the highway, which has made this  possible. Some people are of  the opinion that this should  have been' done years ago.  What the heck, let's complain  when something is not done,  but let's not forget to thank  people  when  something  is  calls asking if I saw the  killer whales come through the  gap in Gibsons last Tuesday.  It looks like I was the only  one who missed them. Apparently it was quite a sight,  they were in no hurry and put  on a show.  Salmon.  Roberts Creek is full of  spawning chums, I was down  there at high tide on Friday  and the bridges were lined  with people watching them.  At Wilson Creek, I met John  Hind-Smith clearing the fish  Huedon Creek.  In last week's paper there  was a story about the wash-out  at Husdon Creek. The Regional Board has rebuilt the  collapsed bridge. Worn my  investigation into the mishap,  it appears that the original  plans for the installation of  the water line into that area of  the coast called for the pipe to  run over the bridge. When it  came to the actual construction, it was more reasonable to  run under the creek, a few feet  upstream.   The   plans   had  EXCAVATING  already called for a similar  crossing of Wilson Creek and  the Regional District had been  given permission for that one.  I guess that since they had  been given the go-ahead on  Wilson, they figured that it  would be OK to cross Husdon.  The only problem was that  they neglected to let the  Fisheries know of their change  in plans. It's often a great  temptation for a private  individual to cut through  red tape by acting first,and  then asking permission later.  Surely things are not to the  stage when those responsible  for this red tape are finding it  necessary to circumvent it  themselves.  The other negative aspect  in the kaffuffle Is that the  work was done during spawning season.  Ung cod closure.  Retroactive to November  14th, there is a ling cod  closure in effect in areas 13 to  20 inclusive. What this means  is that the Strait of Georgia  and all water coming into it  will be closed until further  notice. Don't panic, this  happens every year. It gives  the cod a chance to spawn in  peace and hopefully eventual  ly come back to the numbers  that I remember a dozen years  ago. For details call the  Fisheries office in Madeira  Park. The number is 883-2313.  guy.  Last week I asked if anyone  knew three words ending in  GRY. I've had lots of people  mention that they have been  driven nuts trying to find a  third one (angry and hungry  being the other two) but no  one with the answer. I'm  beginning to think that there  is no third word and the  person who passed it on to me  has a sadistic sense of humour  and is sitting at home chuckling.  Turkey shoot.  The Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club is holding a turkey  shoot and garage sale on  Sunday, November 30th. It  starts at 1 p.m. at the clubhouse.  At Ihe pound.  There are five puppies up  for adoption at the Gibsons  pound. Some are husky cross  and the others are doberman  cross.  Dick and Jane.  I had a good laugh watching  a talk show on daytime  television last week. A northern teacher was explaining  the absurdity of trying to teach  the Indian kids to read using  an antiquated Dick and Jane  reader.  The book was telling them  to see Dick play with his new  pet squirrel while watching  Jane run with Spot. He asked  the kids to come up with a  version that they could relate  to. They did.  The revised edition was that  one of the kids came across a  squirrel in the forest, caught  it, skinned it, ate it and sold  the pelt to the Hudsons  Bay Company. It made much  mote sense to them.  Doe 00.  While laying my column, at  8 p.m. on Sunday evening,  there was a call from the back  shop that it was three inches  short and I was asked to fill  the hole.  As luck would have it, a  lovely lady who wishes,  through modesty, to remain  anonymous, came running in  to tell me that she had been  walking her dog up by Mister  Mikes and bumped into a  young doe. It was the first  deer that the dog had seen and  its reactions were comical.  There, that should fill the  hole.  That's all.

J.M.A. Shanks  Clerk-Treasurer  Housing in B.C.  by Don Lockstead  Young people today are  going to find it harder than ever  to gel affordable housing. I was  hoping thai the federal budget  broughl down on Tuesday  would give them some help, bul  there was very little, other lhan  thc lax commissions for construction of multi-family dwellings. Thc average taxpayer will  find $500 more going oul in  taxes in the next 12 months,  which will make it even more  difficult to help save towards a  down payment.  The latest Royal I rust  survey of Canadian house  prices in British Columbia rose  more lhan 2$ percent in most  areas in jusi eight months  ending October I. lhal represents an annual rale of  increase of aboul .17 percent, or  pui another way. house prices  will double in Iwo years if the  markel continues to rise this  quickly.  Housing construction has  not kept pace will) thc demand,  and Ihis is one thing that Ihe  province of B.C. could do  something about. In many  communities there arc companies and individuals ready,  willing a able to build houses.  Bul they cannot get the land.  The present government has  done little to make Crown land  available lor housing, and has  offered no assistance lo municipalities for land banking  where Crown land is not  readily available. A pilot  program started a few years  ago in I he city of I'rince (icoi ge  is still working well. Il has bi.cn  very successful in providing  affordable housing in a city  that is experiencing high  growlh.  The second ihing that the  province could do is reestablish thc B.C. Housing  Corporation to take up thc  slack wherever the private  sector is nol willing or able to  meet the demifnd. B.C. is the  only province without its own  housing corporation. Tory  Ontario has both a housing  corporation ami a land corporation. Ontario is mi... in  both housing and land hanking.  Bul perhaps the most important step the province could  take is |o provide financing for  young families wanting to own  Iheir own home. In l()70, the  average wage-earner spent .'I  percent ol iheir income on an  iveragc home in Vancouver.  By 1980. this figure had  climbed to 51.4 percent.  The legislation is already on  the books. All the Social Credit  cabincl has to do is proclaim  Ihe NDP's "B.C. Savings and  Trusl Corporation Act" which  was passed in 1975. This act  was intended to provide funds  for young families through the  credit union network to enable  them to buy their own home.  The one-shot mortgage program introduced by the government at the beginning of the  year was a drop in ihe bucket.  It's time to get serious aboul  housing in B.C.  1  1980 Dodge Omni  models  yearend  rices  3 ONLV  saue $ioos  ouer  1901 prices  we need vour  trades ^^���^���^^w^  rnrnmn  22              Coast News, November 18,  1980  !���-,    "^^B^v         ___&__^&  M    '                          '    '^A*     rJ',m^__      _______W___\  ________   _\._^'Jm*<l^f  -         TIM  ________________*���'���'   /A._  mm.'      s/J^k  Guess Where  I he usual prize of 55.(11) will he awarded lo Ihe firsl name drawn from the barrel which correctly  locates Ihe above.

West Coast art taught  by Maryanne West  A highlight of my school  days was the annual lantern-  slide show called "The School  Vear" and the same enthusiasm and delight was  shown by children, parents  and Trustees at the School  Board's meeting in Sechelt, to  the photographs of the school  al work and play taken by  Principal Brian Butcher. The  projector was operated by  the newly elected President of  the Student Council (who ran  on a platform to replace water  in the school fountains with  root beer!) .lirn Wushlove, the  commentary shared by Cathy  Choquer and Cindy Janewick.  Six other students, Lisa  Bignal. Jeffrey Foxall, Deanne  McDougal, Patricia Neilson,  Michael Rogers and Kathy  Squires took part in a demonstration by Bradley Hunt  of the methods he uses to  teach West Coast Art to the  students. These are Grade  six and seven students who  are able to follow the precise instructions and make the  exact measurements necessary to the drafting of the  basic outline for a symmetrical  design, such as the traditional  Bear. Younger children begin  with the free-flowing designs  and leaning the craftsman's  "vocabulary" of shapes.  Bradley Hunt is the School  District's Indian Education  Resource Co-ordinator and  works at Trail Bay Elementary  School, teaching art as well as  counselling the Indian children and working on curriculum  development. Hunt reminded  his audience that what we  loosely call "Indian Art" is  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  Phone 886-8187  really the traditional art of the  West Coast peoples and  should be so designated, as  there are many other Indian  peoples who have developed  their own art forms and  traditions. Born in Bella Bella,  a Kwakiutl of the Heiltsuk  tribe, Hun't early interest in  art was fostered by his Father  and survived school in Bella  Bella, Vancouver and Port  Alberni, after which he went  on to the Vancouver Art  School and U.B.C. graduating  with a double art major in  1973. He hopes that the  changing attitudes in the community and the importance  attached by the School Board  and the Superintendent to the  integration, not assimilation,  of Indian children will result in  time in the children looking  upon the school as "ours"  rather than "theirs".  To end the educational part  of the meeting Principal  Butcher told of the process  of Self-Assessment which the  school has been working  through for the past two  years and which is nearing  first stage completion.  The programme was designed by the Ministry of Education and Butcher picked up  the idea from a conference in  Victoria, returning to enthuse  his staff with the project,  which has occupied a great  deal of their out of school  time.  The assessment covers seven areas: - School and  Community; Philosophy and  Objectives; Curriculum Pupil assessment; Pupil services;  Staff and administration and  Resources and school facilities. A committee was struck  for each section and much  thought was given to decide  what the school as a unit was  trying to do, how it should go  about it, how well they were  ELECTROHOMB   $|j  Sales & Service   k^  SUNSHINE COAST T.V.  885-9816  Still Original  Still Individual  Where All Items are Handmade  on The Sunshine Coast      j  Open t Dayt a Waak During  November and December  Tuat. thru Sat.

It had  been, Butcher said, a rewarding exercise, bringing  the staff together in ways in  which might not have been  possible without such a concerted effort.  When their Self Assessment  had been analyzed and coordinated, pulled together in a  concise form the school invited  an external review team in to  judge how well they were  living up to their commitment  to their pupils.

The project consists of two blocks  totalling ten family units sharing a common driveway access to  Seaview Road. This is considered an improvement over current  zoning regulations which would permit construction of up to four  duplex units with eight individual accesses to the road.  Subjects brought under discussion included already existing  water drainage problems and high density traffic. Municipal  planner Rob Buchan pointed out that the developers would be  required to install storm drainage and also improve pavement  conditions in the immediate vicinity. He said that under current  zoning, such conditions could not be imposed.  lt was generally agreed that the volume of traffic bears  attention. Residents expressed concern over current practice of  motorists who use Seaview Road as a short cut between upper and  lower Gibsons, making the residential street a thoroughfare. The  developers agree and both parties favour a cul-de-sac as the best  solution.  Council stated that the municipality has requested assistance  from the Department of Highway's engineering department  concerning traffic planning in the lower village but has not yet  received an answer.  The zoning amendment will be up for council approval shortly.  SPCA needs supplies  Jean Gallup is the head of  our Ladies Auxiliary and  fund raising committee.

BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  (Editor's Note: Thc following scries ol articles were written by Mr. Dennis Shuttleworth, a practicing  engineer who now lives in Davis Bay. Alter retiring Irom the Royal Canadian Navy in 1970, he chose the  Sunshine Coast on which to settle. This choice was made alter extensively studying possible locations from  throughout the world. Mr. Shuttleworth's findings coupled with his refreshing "engineer's" point of view are  as pertinent today as they were in 1970. Anyone wishing a reprint of this series in its entirety may obtain a  copy at Anderson Realty, Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.)  This series of articles will try to deal with the things involved when  choosing a place to live, the lot in the place chosen and the bask factors of  designing the home to go on the lot.  Most readers will have the decision to live here already, but future property values  will be affected by demand, so this first article will look at the area from an outside  view, and compare it with the other few desirable places all over the world.  If you think this is too wide a starting point, you will be surprised to read that your  local paper is being read in London (a copy in B.C. House), in New York, in Sydney,  Australia and in Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Hawaii, Burma, Kenya and  across the U.S.A.  As you know, there are many people in these and other cities who have become  unhappy with city living, and their new dream is to find their own bit of heaven on  earth. Some of them are wealthy and have no family ties, so they can and do think in  terms of the whole world before making their choice.  Imagine you've won the Irish sweep and the kids have gone and you're living in, say,  Northern Ontario. Where would you pick?  At first it seems just too easy, but for the English speaking races, it is becoming  much harder than ever to find a quiet, peaceful and lovely spot to settle. You have to  look beyond the glamor of travel pictures, which ends at the edge of the picture and  seek dull things like political stability, protection of your money, tax situations,  understanding the language and living habits, cost of living, etc., before even looking  at things like scenery, climate and recreation.  As you apply one or more of these tests, whole chunks of the world drop out as  possibilities. For example, how do you fancy paying $15,000 for a house with  a swimming pool in Uganda? Before you know it, you are down to a short list, which  includes the English speaking countries, Scandinavia and Western Europe.  Scandinavia meets most of the things except language and climate. With the high  latitudes, winter days are very short and often bleak.

Western Europe, especially Southern France, northern Italy, Switzerland and  Spain are plainly in for serious thought. There are Canadian colonies in Ibiza (an  island near Majorca), the Costa del Sol (Sunshine Coast) and the Costa Brava. The  once low cost of living and relative luxury in a pleasant climate have gone as  international demand has grown.  Switzerland, and particularly Ihe Lugano, Lake Lucarno region has a good climate,  good standard of living and a high existence level, but immigration is restricted and  costs are high and climbing.  Coastal Northern Italy offers gracious living, and though the rocks and flowersare  different, the overall appearance is not unlike this stretch of the B.C. coast. One  popular place is Porlofino, which has become a mini.Beverly Hills. There are other  equaly attractive villages, where English is seldom heard, but living in them requires  knowing Italian and having a sympathy for the Italian way of life.  Much the same is true for lesser known parts of the French Riviera, except for the  change of language. The well-known places have, do, and will attract large numbers of  wealthy English speakers, but property prices in Villefranche, or around Cap  D'Antibes would make any local real estate man green with envy. Among other  things, you can walk through the Nice flower market on a December morning and  think of what the weather is doing in the city you left.  Unbelievably, there are four sub-tropical areas in Great Britain and Eire. The Irish  and Scottish ones are unknown to me, but the Irish one is around Shannon and an  island off-shore. Scottish friends, all sailors, talk of a sea lock where the salmon are as  big as the Loch Ness monster, where the palm trees grow tall and where Heaven  landed on earth after it bumped its wheels on Ireland. For those knowing only the  Scottish naval bases or the Commando school near Fort William, all this sounds like  something from Brigadoon. Nonetheless, it really does exist, and is due to an eddy in  the Gulf Stream. To find it you have to penetrate the Scotch mists and a tartan screen  beyond compare, to walk at Inverewe.  The Welsh sub-tropical area is inthe extreme south west of the country as is the  English one, which lies in the Scilly Isles and the part from Penzance to Falmouth.  There is a village just east of Penzance called Gulvai, which has a southern slope 2-300  feet high and about a mile long. Locally, it is called the golden mile and produces two  crops a year without fail. Palm trees grow to a height of 30 feet���daffodils start in mid-  January, rhododendrons bloom in February, along with cyclamen, and primrose, and  in normal years swimming or sailing is possible on most days.

Harold Jacques Res.885-9023  Bruce McKinnon  and nowhere on earth is without them, are the present tax agreements between  Canada and U.K., an olficial English policy to try to acquire all coastal properly for  public use, which has driven remaining private water front property sky-high, and the  problems arising from population overcrowding. A poorly designed and ill equipped  house on V,_ acres of steep water front was $50,000in 1970 and has since quintupled.  In the rare event of obtaining an empty waterfronl lol, t he design is subject to planning  "approval in principle," which will take anything up lo six months. The final design is  always subject to planning board veto, so building tends lo become an obstacle race.  From the, as yet, wide open spaces of Canada, it is easy to ridicule this sort of  performance, but the situation is the direct result of "loo many people-too little  space", and the solution of using bureaucratic impartiality is the only one which is  acceptable to a "fair play" loving people, its originators in fact.  The South Pacific is a serious competitor for consideration. Western Australia, and  the coast north of Frementle are becoming known as the last frontier, and for those  with a taste for a law and order version of the Wild West, this has many attractions.  The coast is not unlikethe Florida-Bahamas coasts, in that they are all flat, hot and  sandy and too full of sand flies, which never seem to be attracted to the beautiful girls,  spread out on them. On the other side of Australia, 2000 odd miles away, there is a  superb coastline running from near the Queensland-New South Wales border down  to around Wollonggong, south of Sydney. North of this is tropical, and south is getting  a little cool. As possibly the world's greatest individualists and gamblers, the  Australians are well aware of the potential of this coast and it is priced accordingly. In  addition, like here, the growth of nationalism is tending to produce laws to keep  "Aussie" for the "Aussies."  Equally lovely, are some of the North Island coasts of New Zealand. Canada has a  long history of emigration to New Zealand, beginning Mr. MacLeod and his Cape  Bretonners. N.Z. has a cradle to the grave social security scheme and if  Commonwealth governments stop their platitudes and give inter-changeability of  security benefits this could and would be very attractive haven. Costs are high, and  the international disease of inflation is prevalent. Life in the southern hemisphere has  a few surprises, such as the sun rising on your right hand and setting on your left as  you face it, all the best exposures facing north, and the vortex in emptying vessels  rotating in the opposite direction to here.  Finally there is North America. For climatic reason, Florida, Southern California  and Arizona lure the non-working settler. The political and cost of living factors need  no discussion here but the same may not be true for Mexico. Coastal property in that  country is not available to foreigners by law, so if this is your dream it cannot come  true in Mexico.  In Canada, there is no alternative to the area formed by lines drawn between White  Rock to Powell River to Comox to Victoria to White Rock. This simple climatic and  scenic fact is becoming known across the breadth of Canada and was helped by the  publication of the Plant Hardiness Zone map, published by the national Department  of Agriculture and available free on request to the publications branch of that  department in Ottawa.  The result is that people in every city across the land have pinpointed this area, and  can be expected to have a following of flood proportions as the knowledge spreads.  A closer look will be taken at this area with a discussion of the probable effect on  your stake here.
