Array 'f  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY,  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C. V8V 1X4.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast     25�� per copy on news stands August 30,1982 Volume 36, Number 35  New facilities needed  Gurney defends SCRD  Pit John was one of the bystanders who leapt to help when it looked tor a time as though fire was going lo  engulf Gibsons Harbour last week. -m  Editor's Note: The following  press release has been received  from Ihe Sunshine Coast Regional  Board.   by Jim Gurney  Regional Board Chairman  I wish to respond to the continuing controversy surrounding  the Regional District's move to  new administration facilities. It is  . my opinion that much of this controversy is created through  misleading and faulty information  by individuals and groups with  ulterior motives.  The question has been posed,  why in the face of an uncertain  economy, does the Regional  District persist with this move.  The answer very simply is, it is  necessary. Even the most callous  Challenging circumstances  Fire threatens  Gibsons Harbour  by Judith Wilson  Gibsons Firemen brought the situation under control after some anxious moments. -j��*t *������� non  Halfmoon Firemen  are kept busy  by Julie Warkman  In a period of three hours, three  fires requiring the services of the  Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire  Department broke out last Thursday in the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Protection District. '  At approximately 2 p.m., the  department was called to a grass  fire that was under control by the  time they arrived. Within minutes  of returning to the hall and settling back in, they were called to a  brush fire about one quarter mile  south of Buccaneer Marina. Fortunately, the fire was spotted and  reported by passersby shortly  after it began, enabling the fire  department to bring it under control quickly. Chief Jim Nygard  told the Coast News that most  likely the fire was started by a  power saw.  Around 4:30 p.m. the forest  service responded to a call of a  forest fire originating approximately 500 feet in from the  highway, across from Lord Jim's  Lodge. They called the Halfmoon  Bay department, as the fire was  actually in their jurisdiction. With  the help of aircraft from Abbotsford dropping Are retardant  and a helicopter transporting  water from the bay, the fire was  kept to an area approximately one  half hectare in size. Outside of air  support, the only water at the  scene was provided by the Half  moon Bay Volunteer Fire Department's tanker truck. Forest Service Duty Officer Ken Matthews  told the Coast News that the fire  originated behind a locked gate on  private property. Human error is  believed to be the cause of the  fire. Although extinguished that  evening, the area was watched  closely the following day.  Unlike other fire protection  districts on the Sunshine Coast,  boundaries of the Halfmoon Bay  Fire Protection District are not  marked along the highway, making It difficult for new residents  and passersby to know who to call  in case of fire. To the south, the  district is bounded adjacent to the  Sechelt Fire Protection District at  Sargeant's Bay. On the north, it  ends at Wood Bay.  "If you are new to the area and  are not sure if you are in the Halfmoon Bay Fire Protection District  or not, give me a call and we will  make sure for you," says Chief  Nygard. He can be reached at  885-9376.  Although the forests are not  closed at this time, the brush fire  believed to have been started by a  chain saw last Thursday points  out the need for added precaution  in warm, dry spells. "If you are in  the brush with a chain saw, stick  around for a few minutes after  you have finished using it just to  make sure that a fire doesn't  break out," suggests Nygard.  The potential for a major  disaster on the Gibsons waterfront was graphically illustrated  on Wednesday morning when  Cathy's Cafe and the adjacent  Smitty's Marina caught fire;  Billowing smoke, intense heat and  the proximity of the fire to propane and gas tanks made the  possibility of a major conflagration seem very near as volunteers  rushed to free boats tied to the,  Marina and to assist the Gibsons  Fire Department in its operations.  The fire, which began about  10:45 a.m. in the cooking area of  the cafe, spread rapidly and  although the GVFD was quickly  on the scene, the cafe building was  gutted and considerable damage  done to the nearby gas float.  However Smitty's Marina, which  is covered by liability insurance,  was back in business the next day  with clean-up operations proceeding rapidly.  Fire Chief Mel Buckmaster  commended his crew for the way  they operated under challenging  circumstances and would like to  extend thanks to the crew of  "Ocean Pearl", to Chris Hummel  and to all members of the public  who assisted with carrying hoses,  moving boats etc.  The fire underlined the need for  more efficient means of organizing the waterfront area from a  safety point of view and of increasing the GVFD's ability to  cope with fires on the water. If the  fire department had been in  possession of the new truck with  extension ladder which they hope  to purchase, then they could have  , reached the fire more easily from  ,ihe; area below tljj. Omega  Restaurant.  i It was obvious that if the fire  had increased in intensity the  possibility of removing all the  boats in the marina would have  been slim indeed as the only  means of egress was a narrow  space next to the burning floats.  As always in such situations in  Lower Gibsons the spectre of the  Shell tanks exploding was present;  it is imperative for the safety of  the village that Shell is assisted in  its wish to move these tanks as  soon as possible.  Fire Chief Buckmaster stated  that after a fire report is received  there could be a reorganization of  safety measures in the area.  politicians would be foolish to  persist with new and more costly  office facilities in these times if  firstly there was not indisputable  evidence of need and the additional costs could not be justified  or offset.  In fact the Regional District will  be able to reduce its staff by at  least two, through this move. This  savings in salaries plus present  rents will actually result in a small  overall savings to the taxpayer.  Simply by consolidating its operation in one location the Regional  District will be able to eliminate  inefficiency in staffing several different locations. Other savings  will result from increased supervision and organization as well as  greater sharing of facilities and  equipment.  The new facility will also provide better access for the aged and  handicapped with a larger meeting  room, making the Board more accessible to the public. This facility  has been referred to as a posh  parking pad for civil servants. On  the contrary, it will be a simple,  attractive, well-ventilated and  lighted facility conducive to good  work habits and high output.  The size of this facility has been  questioned. The Regional District  presently occupies a total of 4,400  sq. ft. of space. Some employees  work three to an office measuring  375 sq. ft. Another works in the  lunch room which doubles as a  committee/board room. The present meeting facilities are often  SCRD budget  Petition presented  against new offices  by Julie Warkman  Petitions containing approximately 600 names were presented  to the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board last Thursday by Mrs. C.  Martinez of Davis Bay, objecting  to the regional district's proposed  expenditure of $60,000 annually  to rent administration space at the  Royal Terraces in Sechelt.  The petitions, in circulation just  over a week, state, "We, the  undersigned, residents and/or  taxpayers of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (including Gibsons and Sechelt Villages) feel that  over expanded office space proposed by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District is unwarranted  in this time of monetary restraint.  We urge the directors of the  regional board to reconsider plans  to rent office space at $60,000 annually."  Going against Board policy not  to respond ' to  petitioners  and  Teachers study response  Sunshine Coast teachers will  study the effects of education cutbacks in an Emergency Study Session Tuesday, September 7th.  Local teachers have been asked  to take a cut in current salaries,  negotiated a year ago, or face  layoffs if $231,219 cannot be  trimmed from non-salary items,  already slashed in the spring.  "The   implications   of  the  government's actions are very far-  reaching and our members must  look carefully at the situation  before we can respond," said  Joan Robb, president of the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association. "We are confronted with the  brunt of the government's  mismanagement. What they have  done with education budgets - and  with the province's budget as a  whole - this year, is the very height  of irresponsibility. Now they are  asking teachers to find solutions  to an impossible situation."  A general meeting of the  S.C.T.A. will be called on Thursday, September 9th, when  members have had a chance to  consider the options. At that time,  the S.C.T.A. will decide on its  response to the government's recent ultimatum.  delegations in the same meeting  the presentation is made, directors  Hunter and Almond heatedly  challenged Mrs. Martinez'  motives for initiating the petition  and her knowledge of the facts  behind the decision to move to  larger premises.  Mrs. Martinez confirmed that  an offer was made to the regional  board to sell her property for  $500,000 at the time the regional  district was considering purchasing premises. She told the board  that they would have considered  going lower and the thought  behind the offer was that they  could retire. She also confirmed  that she was not aware that the  regional district's budget will be  less than last year's budget and  she was not aware of all of the services provided by the regional  district.  Mrs. Martinez, in response to  Hunter's criticism, asked why the  directors have not'talked to people (to me) about the building. Almond pointed out that the directors are constantly talking to people in their area and suggested  that her present stance on the subject was hypocritical, as was  Mayor Koch's, since both of them  were quite willing to see taxpayers' money spent for their  buildings.  After the board voted to receive  petitions, Mrs. Martinez was hesitant to leave them, indicating that  she felt it was a waste of time and  that she would send them to Victoria. Director Hunter suggested  that a copy of the petitions be  made and returned to Mrs. Martinez.  crowded and over-flowing with  groups and individuals wishing to  address the Board. In light of  these facts the new facilities of  7,000 sq. ft., while sizeable, do  not appear to be extravagant.  Finally, I wish to take issue with  recent criticism that the Regional  District is over-staffed. All information which I have been able to  gather points to the contrary. For  example, the per capita to staff  ratio of the Regional District is up  to four times less than the local  municipalities. This, in-spite of  the fact that the Regional District  supplies many municipal type services tor the Electoral Areas over  a much more extensive area, as  well as supplying some utilities  and other local government services for the local municipalities.  However, working on the premise  that nothing is so good that it cannot be better, I have appointed a  staffing analysis committee to investigate Regional District levels  of staffing and recommend ways  to decrease staffing or improve efficiency without adversely affecting service to the public. This  should not be a white wash committee as many of its members  have been the most critical of the  size of the Regional District staff.  I hope these points will offset  the misconceptions that have been  generated and assure you that the  Regional District is managed by  sincere and responsible people  both at the political and staff  levels.  Taxes going down?  by Julie Warkman  In all likelihood, taxpayers on  the Coast will be paying less next  year to fund the operations of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District.  At last Thursday's regular  meeting of the board, Finance  Chairman David Hunter asked  the board for direction concerning  next year's provisional budget,  pointing out that at the present  time, there are three directions in  which the board can plan for next  year; increase the budget by five  per cent, keep it the same as this  year, or reduce it by five per cent.  Hunter told the board that staff  has already prepared a preliminary budget outline based  on a reduction of the current  budget for next year of five per  cent that the board can live with.  It allows for a three per cent  salary increase for senior staff  members and a six per cent increase for the balance of staff.  Both directors Harry Almond  and Ian Vaughan, Areas D and A  respectively, suggested that the  board plan along the lines of a  negative five per cent budget for  next year.  Hunter suggested, however,  that a zero budget plan would be  the most flexible for the board at  this time pointing out that a  negative budget would automatically eliminate potential to cut if  they were forced to do so by  Municipal Affairs.

"It was a great surprise," said Mr. Whieldon, who added,  "I've never had luck like this before and I sure hope it continues."  With the $10,000 won, Mr. Whieldon's ticket is still eligible  for the four $1 million prizes and thousands of subsidiary  prizes which will be drawn for on August 29th.  Mr. Whieldon stated lhat he planned lo use the money as a  paymeni on his mortgage.

Population figures  Revised population figures to be used for determining  voting strength and director representation on the Sunshine  Coast Regional Dislrict Board were recently certified by the  Minister of Municipal Affairs.  The overall population figure for the regional district, including those people residing within cities, districts, towns,  villages, Indian Reserves, and unincorporated rural areas, is  now 15,513.  These new figures have resulted in an increase in voting  strength of from 1 to 2 votes for the Village of Sechelt; and, 2  to 3 votes for Electoral Area B.  The revised figures will result in a total of eight directors  with an overall voting strength of 19 votes. Coast News, August 30,1982  Swimming upstream  It seems inevitable in the newspaper business that occasionally it will be necessary to swim upstream against the  prevailing currents of public opinion. Such an occasion seems  to be presenting itself in the matter of new accommodation  for the Sunshine Coast Regional Board.  At the present time, a goodly portion of the population of  the Sunshine Coast is adrift on currents of irrationality and  ill-considered passion when it comes to consideration of office space to accommodate the largest local government in the  area. Let's try to get some perspective into the discussion.  The need for re-housing the regional government has been  apparent for the last several years. There was a valiant attempt made a few years ago to have one building built which  would house the Village of Sechelt's council, the school  board, and the regional government. At one time the solution  seemed achieved until a community-minded developer doubled the cost of a village lot when it became apparent that it was  needed.  Finally, the school board built a very imposing structure in  the Village of Gibsons and the Village of Sechelt tripled its  facilities in size - all done without a whimper of interest from  local taxpayers. That left the regional board in quarters which  have been inadequate for years.  Now, the simple facts of the matter are that the most recent  government census figures indicate that the regional board  looks after the needs of 11,813 of this area's residents. The  Village of Gibsons has 2,604 residents and the Village of  Sechelt 1,096 of a total of 15,513.  Now that Bill Vander Zalm has taken his fast lip and meat  cleaver instincts into the Department of Education and now  that the provincial government is in no financial state to  restructure anything, it is likely that the regional form of  government, on the Sunshine Coast is with us for at least the  next several years.  What is the justification for this mass assault on the  regional board concerning its need for space. No rational  basis can be detected. It is as if the long dormant taxpayer has  suddenly woken to the fact that he is being misgoverned and  is lashing out in a reflex action at the first target that comes  before his newly opened eyes.  One would be remiss if one did not note that two of the  chief critics of new accommodation for the regional board,  namely Mayor Bud Koch of Sechelt and Mrs. Martinez of  Davis Bay, recently offered the board their respective  buildings for sale. Would the expenditure of taxpayers'  money be less reprehensible had it gone to purchase the Martinez or Koch building? We think not.  Any objective analysis of the conditions under which the  regional board works must conclude that more space is required. No rational argument can be made against the fact  that serious overcrowding is being suffered.  The fact of the matter is that the present hue and cry about  the regional board's need for accommodation is about as rational as a running pack of dogs with its blood up. There are  few things as chilling to contemplate as such rampant stupidity.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AQO  Peninsula Gales Hockey  Club is in preparation for  its first season.

Delivery truck parked in front of  two-storey Sechelt Service Store, operated by Jack and Lee Redman.  They purchased it from Joe Spangler on October 31,1946, when it  was the only store on "The Back Road". Jack's uncle, Stewart  Killick, was a partner for 18 months. In 1963 Redmin's Red & White  moved into the Lang Block and continued there until Jack and Lee  retired in 1971.

It is apparently by no means  certain that lemmings do indulge  in periodic mass suicide marches  into the sea. It is probably a  human characteristic of mindless  self-destruction which we have  characteristically laid at some  other door.  On the federal level we have the  Liberal government, the same  kind of Liberal government which  has mismanaged the economy and  misgoverned the country with  brief pauses since the middle of  the 1920's. This latest round they  have been in power for two and a  half years. For the first two years  they refused to pay any attention  to the economy whatsoever.  They finally brought in a budget which had to be virtually  scrapped. Their second budget  saw their projected deficit double  in a matter of months. There may  be countries more ineptly governed than this one but surely none  with its immense natural wealth.  Typically when the Liberals do  take action it is a purely political  action to take our minds off their  ineptitude. The hand of Senator  Keith Davey can be seen in the  Liberal's Six-Five formula which  has been designed to take our  minds off the ruinous interest  rates which bode well to beggar  the entire country.  Provincially, we have a government assiduously doing everything it can to turn the economic  clock all the way back to the Dirty  Thirties. There was an excellent  letter in the Vancouver Sun of  August 24 from a Steven James.  James pointed out that in August  1932, a Conservative party headed  by Simon Fraser Tolmie was in  power in British Columbia with  an unemployment rate hovering at  about 25 per cent. Tolmie consulted a group of right wing businessmen about how best to deal  with the disaster of the economy.  They recommended and he implemented, or attempted to, the  following: elimination of the provincial deficit of $6.5 million;  balancing of the provincial  budget; merging provincial  ministries; cutting spending on  education; cutting staff at liquor  branch outlets by 25 per cent and  their pay by 20 per cent; reducing  'mother's pensions'; selling the  Pacific Great Eastern to the  private sector; reducing teacher's  salaries by 25 per cent. The result  of Tolmie's economic management was utter disaster. Does it  sould familiar fifty years later? It  is a demonstrable truth that those  who do not study history are  doomed to repeat it.

Towards a wider perspective  The silly season  relatively full employment. If we  have most of the workforce working and paying taxes and producing goods we can dig ourselves  out. If we keep the interest rates  high, the energy rates high, and  keep laying people off, we will only dig ourselves deeper.  The causes of inflation which  Pierre Trudeau was going to wrestle to the ground a decade ago are  primarily interest rates and energy  prices. In declaring war on  salaried employees our governments are attempting to shift the  blame for their own mismanagement and lack of vision.  But now the interest rates and-  the layoffs have had their effect.  They have broken 'the inflationary spiral of expectations'.  Now we all expect the worst.  Lemming-like we are all beginning  lo applaud restraint programmes  which are taking more and more  people out of the workforce and  putting them on government relief  rolls. Less and less money is in circulation and fear and despair  grips the hearts of more and more  of our people.  And still our leaders march at  the head of our procession,  mouthing outworn platitudes and  heading for the cliffs. We are a  misled and manipulated people.  George  Matthews  on vacation  by Geoffrey Madoc-Jones  The past two weeks have been  some of the most bizarre of recent  years. It is well known that during  summer months everyone who is  anyone is at the beach, so that  newsmen need to create news  themselves; thus often giving this  time of the year the name "the silly season".  But what we have seen of late is  no Ogopogo, no two headed calf,  no tattooed lady, but the sight of  the conservative financial world  being turned on its head. Almost  every major bourse in the world  has been gripped with feverish  buying. The stock markets, after  years of falling stock prices (bear)  have seen the most dramatic rise  (bull) in prices for many a year. In  London, Toronto and New York,  record numbers of shares were  sold; Remember for every seller  there is a buyer.  What was the cause of this optimism? A healthy, strong vibrant  world economy filled with future  potential - You are kidding.  The economic malaise affecting  the industrialized world is well  known. Apart from a few exceptions, industrial production is  down, unemployment up and the  only growth industry is in the liquidation business. The US, the  great engine of the whole juggernaut is still sputtering and backfiring as its mechanics and drivers  make up their mind to go forward, backward or just stay in the  pits.  In the so-called Third World  the situations is even more grim.  The rise in the cost of oil and the  fall in demand for raw materials  The Lake Isle  of Innisf ree  / will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,"  And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:  Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,  And live alone in the bee-loud glade.  And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes  dropping slow,  Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the  cricktt sings;  There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,  And evening full of linnet's wings.  I will arise and go now, for always night and day  I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;  While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,  I hear It in the deep heart's core.  - William Butler Yeats  has slashed the incomes of countries in Africa, Asia and South  America. Even so-called semi-rich  countries like Nigeria, Brazil,  Venezuela and Mexico are in trou-:  ble.  In fact, ironically, while the:  bubble was expanding in Wall  Street on Friday 20 August, Jesus;  Silva Herzog, Mexico's finance  minister was meeting with bankers  in the auditorium of the Federal  Reserye Bank in New York, to  face the men to whom his country  owes $80 billion. Mexico is broke;  it gambled on oil and lost. The  banks flocked to Mexico City with  easy cash based on the belief that  the sky was the limit as far as  energy prices were concerned;  now they want their interest, at  18 per cent.  There, however, is a symbiotic  relationship between the two; the  Mexicans put it very delicately,  stating that they were aware of the  "potential damage that a  unilateral non-compliance with its  commitments might cause to individual banks". After all, it was  the failure of the Austrian  Creddit-Austalt Bank in 1929  which sparked the Great Crash.  Not only Mexico is in trouble,  but Brazil also owes $70 billion to  the banks, Argentina $37 billion,  Poland $30 billion and OPEC is  now a net borrower.  What then was the cause of the  great stock bubble? It all centres,  of course, around Wall Street, the  world's most important exchange.  Some analysts have seen the cause  in the psychological need for a  boom after so many years of bust,  but perhaps the whole circus has a  ringmaster.  Dr. Henry Kaufmann, chief  economist of the New York investment bank Solomon Brothers  cracks the whip according to the  experts. He has built a reputation  as a formidable market forecaster, and has been known until  recently as "King of the Bears".  This was due to his consistent advice to sell shares and make  money off the high interest rates.-  Kaufmann reasoned that the'  Federal government would have a  $150 billion deficit next year, and  would thereby be on the money  market competing with industry  for money.  This, because of supply and de-i  mand, would keep interest rates;  up. Now Kaufmann maintains  that American industry will ro-;  main depressed, and therefore will  not want to borrow to invest - and  so competition with the government would be reduced. Thereby  reducing demand and lowering interest rates.  So ironically, the great splurge  of stock buying is not based on  optimism, but on pessimism.  Pessimism in the long term; in the  short - well let's make a buck.  Mammon, who so recently stalked  the real estate market of British  Columbia seems to have found a  new home. MV  Coast News, August 30,1982  Letters to the Editor  Pender shortchanged on TV  Editor:  Pender Harbour cable  subscribers have been  told by the federally appointed C.R.T.C. that!  they do not qualify for  more television services.  (Note: Gibsons and  Sechelt cable subscribers  receive 10 off air signals,  6 American and 4 Canadian; while Pender Harbour cable subscribers  receive 5 off air signals, 1  American and 4 Canadian).  The cable company  that serves Pender wants  now and has wanted  since the system was just  an idea, to provide  Pender Harbour with  satellite signals. The  geography of the area is  such that satellite is the  only technical method of  receiving a broader selection of good quality  television services. The  C.R.T.C. knew this  when they licensed the  system.  So, now why did the  Commission turn down  the Pender community?  Satellite signals is the  reason! The C.R.T.C.  says that only "remote"  communities may receive  satellite services and  defined remote as two or  less off air signals.  Therefore Pender Harbour doesn't qualify.

Marta MacKown,  Teacher,  Communications  Programme,  Elphinstone Secondary  School  Dangerous precedent  Editor:  On Friday the 20th of  August the Sechelt  Village Council decreed,  in their wisdom, that the  mobile home on Surf  Circle, an RI designated  zone, was to be allowed  to remain, in contravention of By-law 146. It is  now acceptable for  anyone to move a mobile  home onto an RI lot in  the village and construct  an approved addition.  The office of the  Municipal Affairs in Victoria states that amendments to the By-law  (146) supposedly to prevent this situation from  happening again, are in  effect, useless. Anyone  can challenge the validity  of these so-called amendments.  The mayor also says  that these amendments  are in effect immediately, in fact where a village  is concerned any By-law  or amendment mail have  three public readings aad  be registered in Victoria  before they are in effect.  The decision by the  village council sets a  precedent. Would this  have been allowed to  happen in Oak Bay, Victoria, or Point Grey,  Vancouver?  Brian Ludlow  Chamber grateful  Editor:  As most of us are  aware, this year the  Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce is operating  its Tourist Services in a  new location at the foot  of Rockwood Lodge.  To make this permanent location possible a  lot of people donated  their time, money,  energies and talent on  the renovated building.  We would like to take  this opportunity to thank  Mr. Hayden Killam  -Sechelt Building Supplies, Driftwood Inn  owner - Mr. Cliff Lin-  say, D & D Electric; Mr.  Willie Takahashi - Landscaping; Barry Biddle,  Barry Milne, Brian's  Auto Body; Sunshine  GM; and a special  thanks to Vice-President  Mr. Vic Walters for coordinating the project.

It's really surprising when you consider  our proximity to the  water and to so many  water-related activities.  Lack of swimming  skills and confidence in  the water is, for most, an  unnecessary restriction.  Taking the time to learn  is definitely a worthwhile  investment when you  consider that you would  no longer have to be a  Grandparent sought  A family living in  Selma Park would like a  volunteer grandparent  for their eight-month-old  daughter. This person  would not provide a  babysitting or errand service. Rather she or he  would spend a few hours  a week with the child  and/or her parents simply doing things and sharing some time together  walking,  talking, play-  mere spectator to such  things as swimming,  boardsailing, waterski-  ing, etc.  Not only would it  open up more recreational outlets to you, it  could also save your life  or someone else's. And if  you can't swim, but still  enjoy fishing, canoeing,  etc., please at least wear  a lifejacket.  Learn to swim and get  in on what you've been  missing.  Lise Graham  Mort's Water Sports Inc.

CENTF  .Bob  Rutter  Editor:  On behalf of the  Village of Gibsons, I  would offer the following comments respecting  Mr. Bob Rutter.  Bob, as a public  employee, epitomized  the merit of dedication  to one's profession by  consistently demanding a  high quality and standard of both hit staff  and himself.  Due to the nature of  our respective areas of  employment we frequently had occasion to  communicate on projects  that were of mutual interest. It was therefore  my privilege to have  known Bob over the past  ten years...a period of  time wherein we were  able to recognize and admire his professional  competence and personal  commitment to seeing  the job done well. He  was a solid member of  the community contributing unsparingly of  his time and resources.  Bob, always a  gentleman, was sympathetic and caring of  the feelings and viewpoints of others he encountered. He shall  always be remembered  with fond memories and  it is with this thought we  state he will be missed by  those of us, with the  Village of Gibsons, who  had the pleasure of  knowing him.

The Kinsmen Club of  Gibsons and District  would like to report to  your readers that 176  pints of blood were collected at our recent  Blood Donors Clinic  held at the Legion Hall,  Gibsons on August 19.  We would like to express our thanks for the  support and effort given  us by the following people and businesses:  Royal Canadian Legion:  Gibsons Branch; J.

The Kinsmen and the  Red Cross were pleased  with the results as traditionally summer clinics  do not prove as productive as the others. A pint  full of thanks for those  that did give the gift of  life and for those that  were not able to give, we  will see you at our next  clinic.

Those  crazy out-of-shape guys  who were talking about a  run of their own weren't  just talking through their  beers. They're really  planning to do it and  they're out practising for  it. And they're not just  practising the beer-  drinking part of it either.  Glen Kraus has been  out on the road every  other night and Alex  Goodwin is going out  twice some days. They're  all trying to beat Alex  Koss's record of 12  minutes from the  cemetery to Maskell  Road but the one they  should be worried about  is Ron Kirkman. He jogs  home from Gibsons after  work every day!  It's all supposedly  non-competitive and the  prizes will be jokes only.  To avoid besmirching  the good name of the  Terry Fox Run, the race  has been set for  September 11 and  pledges will be collected  for the CNIB. They guys  are throwing out the  challenge to all serious  non-runners. No triflers  please.  ST. AIDAN'S DAY:  St. Aidan's Anglican  Church in Roberts Creek  is alive and well and  celebrating St. Aidan's  Day   this   Tuesday,  August 31. There'll be a  service at the church at 5  o'clock followed by a  potluck supper at St.  Aidan's Hall.  St. Bartholomew's in  Gibsons will be joining  the Roberts Creek congregation to celebrate St.  Bartholomew's Day at  the same time so it  should be a good gathering. Everybody is  welcome.  SPACE NEEDED:  Barry Krangle is  organizing a boxing club  for kids and already has  had a lot of response.  But he needs a place to  leave a ring and other  equipment set up. A  garage or other such  space would be perfect.  If you have or know of  such a facility they could  use, please phone Barry  at 886-9484. For the present, workouts will be  held at Davis Bay  School, Monday,  Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 6, starting  Wednesday, September  8. For more information  phone Barry at the above  number.  WAVES RETURN:  "Waves" will be  returning to Roberts  Creek September 18 for  the Legion Auxiliary's  dance at the Community  Hall. They were here for  the Arts Festival in July  and played to big crowds  at the Legion both nights  of that weekend.  The dance is expected  to sell out quickly so get  your tickets early.  They're $5 each and  should be available this  week at Seaview Market  in Roberts Creek, Jokers  Restaurant in Gibsons,  and B & L Crafts in  Sechelt.  CO-OP SUGGESTED:  It's been suggested  that these hard times  when people are out of  work is a good time to  form a work co-op. People pool their resources,  exchanging their skills as  carpenters, plumbers,  whatever, for somebody  else's services in another  field.  Such co-ops have  worked elsewhere and it  might be worthwhile for  someone to look into  ways of setting one up  simply and equitably.  Someone obviously took exception to the "Permit Parking Only" signs erected  on the Gibsons Government Wharf. Saturday morning every one of them was  found covered with Mack spray paint, several with what appeared to be the  design of the hammer at sickle.

SEE YOU THERE!  by Gwen Robertson  Had it not been for an  article in the Coast  News, 1 would have  missed the 40th (Wren)  W.R.C.N.S. Reunion,  hosted by the Vancouver  Wren's Association. (I  am very glad I did not  miss it.)  It was with some  trepidation that I joined  850 of the 6,000 plus  Wrens in Canada at the  University of Bijiti  Columbia. One quickly  gave up trying to  recognize old buddies  (we had all changed too  much) and resorted to  scanning the register for  familiar names. These,  too, had changed, but  most had included their  own names in addition to  their married ones.  A note on the board  requesting contact from  members having served  on the same "ship"  seemed a good idea and I  followed suit. This  brought almost immediate contact with a  former buddy and I was  home.  Home had been  beautiful old Kings College and Dalhousie  University, "HMCS  Kings", (an officer training school during the  war), where wonderful  friendships had been  made and where I fell in  love and was married.  We were married right in  the Chapel at Kings College by the Chaplain,  whose wife played the  wedding march. The  Captain's Secretary,  Lieutenant Dexter, gave  me away. My bridesmaid  was Ruth, a Wren from  Saskatoon.  The year lhat I served  with the W.R.C.N.S. is  my most memorable and  the 40th Reunion  brought it all to life  again. The spirit of the  Wrens has not changed  -they sparkle with the  same enthusiasm for living that they sparkled  with 40 years ago From ^.fyou wuTbTsVre  thA ctfiriAir hoard i-mt fami_ ' * .  of a great welcome  meetings are usually on  the first Monday of each  month, but due to the  Monday being a holiday,  the change was made for  September.  The Auxiliary is in  need of some new  members and now that  so many new families  have moved into the  area, there should be lots  of women with some  time to spare to get involved in helping out  with the many functions  and fund-raising activities for St. Mary's  Hospital. It is also a  great way to make new  friends and to get to  know a great bunch of  ladies who live in the  area.  Now that so much of  the government funding  has been cut, there is an  even greater need for  monies to be raised for  patient care extras.

It was comforting  to find so many alive and  well who shared our  memories.  The food was excellent  and the entertainment  provided by the Winnipeg and Toronto Wren  Associations brought us  back to forty years ago  with music and dance of  the era, when men and  women with a common  goal were able to make  enjoyable a type of living  (communal) so necessary  at the time. We were a  family - we still are. It  was good to see the  "family" once again and  make contact with other  branches of the family.  We now have contacts in  Australia, England,  United States and  elsewhere, with whom  we may visit when we  travel abroad and be  made welcome.  We were invited to attend Ihe W.R.N.S. Reunion in London,  England, where Wrens  will arrange suitable accommodation for us.  The Toronto Wren  Association will host the  next Canadian Reunion  in 1985.  who are here on the  weekend can attend. The  terms of office of some  of the board members  will expire on that date  and there is a need for  replacements. If you  know of anyone whom  you think would make a,  good candidate for  membership on this  board, you could give  Judy Gill a call at  885-3126.  The only qualification  required is that you be a  member of the Association and that you are interested in what is happening in your area. At  the present time, there is  a really good membership list, so obviously  there are many who are  concerned about things  and who join because  they are concerned about  the future direction of  the area in general.  Many members avoid  being on the board  because they are unwilling to be the recipients of  the flack which comes  their way when objections are raised on certain matters, but if you  feel strongly enough on  such matters, you will  learn to live with this in  order that your principles can be expressed  when necessary.

LUXURY AT  HALFMOON BAY:  Many residents took a  little trip in their small  boats to get a closer look  at the luxury yacht the  "ABC London" which  was anchored in the Bay  the other night. This is  the yacht which has been  getting lots of publicity  recently, as to who the  actual owner is. The  most recent claim is that  it is owned by some  Swiss banker, lt stopped  here on its way to cruise  to Alaska and was a very  beautiful ship. Daddy,  buy me that!  A little twelve-year-old  chap had a most unfortunate ending to a great  holiday with his grandparents on Redrooffs,  Chas. and Connie  Hobbs. Grandson Paul  Warrington was playing  on the roof of a shed in  the yard, when he lost his  footing and fell. He suffered multiple fractures  of his arm and has been  hospitalized in St.  Mary's for more than a  week. Paul, along with  his two sisters, has spent  most of the summer  here. Their home is in  Prince George and the  accident took place on  the day before they were  due to go home. So, it  became quite an extended holiday for them.

This falls in with the  main discussion as the  club prepares for its annual fall garden show  and plant sale.  Judging the entries  will be Pearl Dyck of  Surrey who will also  open the event.  Barry Willoughby is  show manager and Lou  Wilson is show secretary.  Admission to the fall  Garden Show and tea is  one dollar. There is no  admission price for the  plant sale to be held outside the Senior Citizen  Hall.  This is a good way to  see what you would like  to add to your garden as  the floral displays are  well identified.

The tower on the side  of the building is, of  course, where they hang  the hoses up to dry.

All the  ingredients for a fine  meal, supplied by the  club, are included in the  price.  BACK TO SCHOOL:  It seems like an extra  week of holidays with  the students going back  to school on September  7. Of course, the week  after will seem like a  holiday to the parents.  Helen Greaves  remembered  by VI Tyner  On July 22, Helen  Elizabeth Greaves of  Madeira Park passed  from our midst after  months of sickness. We  had expected that she  would be back with us,  carrying on in her usual  busy, cheerful way.  She was very brave.  When she first spoke of  her sickness, she said she  had a 50-50 chance, and  she said it in such a  matter-of-fact voice that  she. could have been talking about the weather.  She had this little habit  of '.making people feel  better.  We remember her  light, quick voice, her  happy smile and laugh,  and always the plans she  had of things she was going to make and do.  Helen was never idle, her  mind was creative and  her hands obeyed her  will. Her beautiful patchwork and appliqued  quilts and the rugs, both  braided and hooked are  scattered all bver the  province and some went  Al Wagner  Al Wagner  Invites you  to join  Big  Brothers  ;.  A service of  friendship freely  given by men,  to boys without  fathers.  For Information  886-2615  885-5664  farther away. Her choice  of colour combination is  a joy to see.  Helen was one of the  regular, volunteer  workers on Thursday  mornings at the economy  shop of the Health Centre,, where her fingers  flew as she sorted clothes  and talked. She was a  most enthusiastic worker  for the Health Centre  and for each of the last  two years she braided  and donated a rug which  was used as a prize at the  Centre's fall arts and  crafts day.  Helen was a very  steady and dependable  person, what she said she  would do was what she  did. She was also kindly  and compassionate and  once raised a baby racoon whose mother had  been shot by a neighbour.  Married before she  was twenty, Helen was a  great-grandmother  before she was seventy  and she was very happy  when speaking of her  family. Her husband,  George, was her constant  companion and helped  her in her many projects.  Helen has set us all a  fine example in kindly,  energetic and cheerful  living and has given us a  beautiful memory to  keep.  In memory  of Bob Rutter  Bob Rutter  He will be missed  by Judith Wilson  The death early this  week of Bob Rutter,  Director of Buildings  and Grounds for School  District No. 46 since  January 1968, has been  mourned by his many  colleagues and friends in  the school district and on  the Sunshine Coast.  Tributes have been paid  particularly to the great  concern Bob always  showed for the needs of  the children of the  district. He gave unstin-  tingly of his own time  and went out of his way  to upgrade the conditions of school grounds  to see that the children  had all necessary equipment.  A well-known figure  in schools along the  Coast he had a full  janitorial and maintenance staff under his control and was described as  being "a good guy to  work with" although  "you always knew he  was the boss".  Principal Brian Butcher commented on how  impressed he always was  by Bob's priorities "in  terms of the kids". "He  always wanted to make it  better for the kids," he  said.  Fifty-two when he died  after a lengthy illness,  Bob Rutter will be sorely  missed for his dedication  and hard work by those  who knew him and  worked with him, and by  the students of School  District No. 46.  Coast News, August 30,1982  Students shine  4 carijig Mfin  by George Cooper  For those of us who  knew Bob Rutter as a coworker in the school  system, there are many  fond memories to treasure - his genuine interest  in the schools, his unfailing good humour, his  understanding of people,  and his keen sense of  fairness.  A very private man,  one heard only fragments of his career  before he came to the  school district fourteen  years ago. He had been  in the Korean war and  wounded there, had been  a contractor, spoke  wistfully of a family that  lived elsewhere, had  travelled "to nearly  every country".  "We have such a good  country here," he said to  my wife and I only a little more than a week  ago, "if only we would  realize it. New Zealand  comes close but our  Canada offers us so  much more."  Bob spoke matter-of-  factly of the disease that  had wasted his body in  less than a year, and  although we did not say  so to him, displayed a  shining example of fortitude for us to  remember him by.  The humour and the  concern for others were  still there in his conversation that day. He had, he  said just for "fun"  recently inquired about  pensions for soldiers  wounded in action, and  had been told that, yes,  there was one but it  would be reduced by  other income like the  Canada pension and soon.  "So I though I'd better back out of that in  case I ended up owing  the country for my war  service."  To the last he was the  Bob Rutter we- had  always known - a gentle  man, a caring man.  m iiiiliiliiiilllliiiiliillliiililliliiiiiiiiiiimiillllliiiiiiimiiiillllllilllliiiiii iiniimm  WE INSTALL  ��� Prime Windows  ��� Storm Windows  ��� Conversion Windows  ��� Wooden Windows  ��� Screens  ��� Auto & Marine Glass  ��� Mirrors  Opan Mon ��� Frl, 8 am ��� 4:30 pm  Saturday, 8:30 am ��� 12:30 pm  Hwy 101 A Pratt Rd., Qibsons      886-7359 j  Jtotrttui-tu///'" m/{//j//////////// ,////////////. ,//////!  A  Three local students  have just successfully  completed the initial  stage of training in the  Regular Officer Training  Programme (ROTP) of  the Canadian Armed  Forces.  Graduating last Thursday from the camp at  Chilliwack after six  weeks of tough Basic Officer training were Tony  Brooks of Sechelt,  Steven Gentles of  Langdale and Graham  Solomon of Gibsons, all  former students at  Elphinstone Secondary  School.  It is indeed a feather in  our local cap that, out of  26 chosen to take part in  the ROTP from Vancouver and its surrounding area, three of our  students qualified.  Applicants were first  put through a series of  examinations in Vancouver. Those who were  successful went to  Toronto and underwent  a week-long battery of  tests which measured  everything from General  I.Q. to Physical Fitness  to Academic Ability to  Co-ordination and  Reflexes. Even after  qualifying in these  rigourous tests a high  number of students are  unable to handle the  Basic Training programme.  Brooks, Gentles and  Solomon have already  left for Royal Rhodes  Military College on Vancouver Island, where all  three will begin a four  year programme leading  to a degree in Engineering.  In addition to studying  Engineering,    Graham  Solomon has also b��$n  selected for Pilot Tracing.  The Coast News and  the residents of the Sunshine Coast congratulate  these young men on their  accomplishments and  wish them success in  their future endeavours.

Though the  picture on the back cover  is definitely Herb's, the  biographical notes are  quite surprising. There is  not a word about his  notorious criminal  career. In this chaste account he is simply a  retired Baptist clergyman  who just happened to  have been Brother Twelve's younger brother - a  canny publishing ploy  for, after all, the spectacle of one con man  criticizing another would  constitute a case of the  pot calling the kettle  black.  Herb embellishes the  story with accounts of an  Ontario boyhood where  he and Ed grew up  together in a tightly  religious family. Ed, an  inococlastic cynic, committed one outrage after  another. Finally, at fourteen, he impregnated a  neighbour's daughter  and ran away from  home. At this point,  wrote Herb, the family  disowned him and his  name was never permitted to be spoken around  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  the Wilson household  again. Herb, however,  secretly admired and  kept in touch with his errant sibling, mostly by  mail. When Ed became  Brother Twelve he invited Herb to visit the  B.C. colony. Herb, for  reasons of his own,  politely declined. (In actual fact, he was in San  Quentin at this time.)  Canada's False Prophet is a compelling  book in some ways but it  has the somewhat  frenetic tone of a pulp  thriller, and the sex and  sadism aspect which  Herb culled from Ed's  amazingly frank letters is  laid on with a trowel. It  ends on a most curious  note.  Ed did not die in  Switzerland after all,  Herb claimed, but surfaced in Brisbane,  Australia in 1943 when  Herb was operating a  store there. The longlost  and terminally ' ill  Brother Twelve showed  up at Herb's door, begg-  ���Now open  everyday  6 dm-9 pm  HO  Smorgasbord Every Sundt  G&& Smi/fl a* 5:30 pm  ing for sustenance and a  quiet burial. Herb fed  him chicken soup and  heard his anguished confessions. Ed gave him a  map, showing the location of his legendary  treasure. He then died  and Herb, true to his  word, buried him in a  Sidney graveyard under  the name of Mrs.  William Knight.  By God! Here was the  makings of a great story!  No one seemed to have  ever twigged to the fact  that the author of Canada's False Prophet was  actually the King of the  Safecrackers. And the  revelation that two such  great con men were  brothers...!! It seemed  such a natural book, we  could hardly wait to  write it!  Where had Edward  been hiding all those  years? Who had died in  Switzerland? What was  Herb, a notorious ex-  con, doing in Australia  during World War II in  the first place? And what  kind of a family had produced such a strange  pair?  Yvonne and I were  now researching two  highly bizarre stories  simultaneously and  things began to get a little busy.  We tracked down two  more books by Herb  Wilson. One, a novel  called Greed, was a bad  ly written pot-boiler  about a Utopian colony  in Mexico. The other,  Rogues-All of Us, was  also marred by inept  writing and consisted  mainly of character sketches about the various  cons with whom Herb  had served time in San  Quentin. Both books  were products of a vanity  press called Author's  Agency Publishers - a  company owned by none  other than Herb himself.  I was puzzled by the  glaring dichotomy between these awkwardly-  written books and the  relative professionalism  of Canada's False Prophet. The latter must  have been heavily edited  or even rewritten. As I  would shortly learn, the  truth of the matter was  considerably more surprising.  tobecontiasM  Pi'udcr Pcopli  The beaatlfal, strong, and sensitive sculptures of  Linda loir, shown here with "Bass Player", will remain �����fliplay at the Arts Centre in Sechelt until  S*m*m**mtl 5th. -In. lane, nolo  Ruby Lake delight  by Jane McOuat  I had a delightful experience on Saturday.

That  made me feel better  already.  I talked to Gib and  Sophie about what they  were doing previously.  They're from Vancouver  Island, where Gib was an  antique dealer and  Sophie owned her own  restaurant. In 1950, and  for seven years, Sophie  was a cook on the  Princess Mary Restaurant Vessel.  She takes quiet pride  (and so does, Gib) in a  wall plaque just inside  the door. It was  presented to her by  members of the RCMP  when she left her own  restaurant, thanking her  for serving them so well  while they did their duty.  Gib then said he couldn't  think of anything else to  tell me, except that if I  would like a piece of pie,  he could guarantee that  Sophie's Banana Cream  Pie would be the best I'd  ever tasted. I could go on  and on about just how  good it was. Yes! It was  the best I had ever  tasted. Then Gib and his  son dropped word of an  incredibly delicious  chocolate pie and I said I  had to go.  Each plate of food I  saw leave the kitchen  looked and smelled so  very appetizing, that I'll  be back for sure and  soon. The only trouble  is, I'm going to have to  do a lot of exercising this  week...  mm*  There's entertainment  this week at the Garden  Bay Hotel.

She's the  redneck.  I've been a strong  believer in equal rights  for women ever since I  can remember, for the  simple reason, if nothing  else, that my mother had  to work for a living from  the time I was very small.  I know how tough and  unfair it was, being a  woman in the job  market.  I can see for myself  that while old bastions of  male supremacy are  crumbling, much of the  progress in the last few  decades for the women's  movement amounts to  tokenism.  In the critical areas  -money and power - time  has almost stood still. I  can see my mother,  again, making half what  a male waiter made even  though she worked twice  as hard and often twice  as long.  Indeed, we have a  woman as Speaker of the  House of Commons and  now we have a woman  on the Supreme Court of  Canada, but Parliament  remains an overwhelmingly male arena.  The average woman's  wage is still only 59 cents  to every dollar earned by  a male, even though  women in North  America and Europe  make up 40 per cent of  the work force. Their unpaid labour at home  amounts to 40 per cent  of the Gross Domestic  Product.  Housewives are left  out of the Canada Pension Plan on the grounds  that most spouses are  non-working dependents  who stay at home. Such  a stereotype may have  been true in the Sixties,  when the plan was devised, but it doesn't reflect  reality in the Eighties.  According to the International Labour Organization, women and  girls constitute half the  world's population but  put in two-thirds of its  working hours. As a  United Nations conference on women reported:  "One of the most important and most ignored health problems in  the world of the 1980s is  that millions of women  are suffering from  chronic exhaustion."  Last autumn, travelling through Thailand,  Singapore and Hong  Kong, I noticed that  women working on construction sites were lifting loads that looked  every bit as heavy as the  men's.  It was a grim kind of  equality, and not at all  what women are after,  but the sight of female  labourers straining under  the weight of wheelbarrows loaded with bricks  was a reminder that the  greatest barrier to equality is the sheer cost involved.  Equal pay for equal  work is beyond doubt a  perfectly legitimate demand, yet who pays for  it? It is the same problem  with inequities in the  Canada Pension Plan  ���they will be enormously  expensive to correct.  But there is one area  where progress can be  made without waiting  for an economic breakthrough, and that's in  the reform of laws which  do not go far enough to  protect women.  In England, Prime  Minister Margaret Thatcher has joined the de-  Our New Menu  for August...

This year, the British  Parliament will vote on a  bill to establish mandatory jail terms for  rapists, yet if there is a  similar campaign in  Canada, its voice hasn't  been properly aired.  Years ago, as a  reporter, I used to have  to sit through rape trials  where I couldn't believe  the ordeal the victim was  being put through by  defence lawyers and  judges alike. Essentially,  nothing has changed  since those days.  The proof of the  failure of our courts to  defend women against  rape is the fact that only  one victim out of four  reports an attack.  It is not just that men  estimate their chances of  being seriously punished  as very low, women  themselves clearly have  little faith in the system.  There is too much of a  record of light sentences  of convictions.  If the victim knew that  her assailant was going  to be imprisoned, not  just allowed to walk  away with a fine, she'd  be that much more inclined to testify.  On this, my wife - the  redneck - and 1 agree.

Summer's End  SHCI   TAI_l\  by BUI Edney  As Labour Day approaches and the PNE closes, we  know that the end of summer is at hand. Only hot sunny  weather can then extend that feeling of summer.  Each year the summer months bring an expanded  population of residents, visitors and tourists. They increase our business volume of from 40 to 50 per cent  and it is this extra business that sustains us through the  winter, - and it has been exactly so for years and years.  It is the reason why business people so strongly advocate the encouragement of tourism, and all the  necessary preparations to make this Industry happen.  I've been making this pitch for some time. I am well  aware that there are those who, having selected this  place to retire, want It to be tranquil and undisturbed  by a transient public. I too overhear the derogatory  comments from a few about crowded ferries, crowded  streets, roadside garbage - and the general Inference  about "summer complaints".  The tourist Industry Is a clean Industry and can be a  means of bringing a more affluent economy to this  community. What retail and consumer services we  have here are really quite good. In fact for a community of this size, we are well above average for retail  and service-oriented square footage, and still more  business establishments are opening up.  I have said this before and I must say it again: It Is a  real pleasure to serve people from outside this area  who are Impressed with our selection, the quality of  our fresh meats and produce, the competitive pricing  and friendly service. They go out of their way to tell us  so.  I find most of the business establishments here to be  the same and it Is my earnest hope that local people  will make It a point to help the growth and development of a complete year-round consumer service by  patronizing local business establishments. If we find  something that is not to our satisfaction, we should, In  a constructive manner, draw It to the owner's attention, whether It be price, quality, availability or service.  No business can afford to disregard the advice of Its  clients, at least if enough of them say the same thlngsl  It's jobs we're talking about - jobs for our young people and residents. Jobs mean self-support, dignity and  self-respect.  It is well worth remembering that the small business  and professional service community provides over 50  per cent of the total job force in Canada. In 1981, a  local data study was undertaken by the Village of Gibsons. It reveals the following interesting statistics:  ���We have a large retired population; 27 per cent of  the Sunshine Coast population Is over 55 years of age,  compared to 17 per cent In B.C. as a whole.  ���The labour force is relatively smaller than the B.C.  figure, reflecting the former.  ��� The labour force activity Is more seasonal than the  B.C. average.  ���Employment figures (Inside our municipal boundaries) reveal:  ���DAHpy  lllestream  yoourts 2si.it SN.I  Plain & Flavoured  Monarch  SOFT MARGARINE  10% Off  454gm ���  Retailers employed  Other Consumer Services  Industrial Enterprises  Fishing Industry  Administrative 1 Schools  326  339  SO  200  146  1091  ��� just outside our boundafes there are, of course,  many more whose livelihood depends on our  patronage.  As the summer wanes, and a new season begins,  keep up the hopes of all these people who need your  support.  i  I  Day by day.

Sunshine  Family  Amusements will open its second  location on the  Coast in The Dock on  Cowrie   Street,   having  had much success with  its initial establishment  in Cedar Plaza, Gibsons.  Owners  Don   Black  and Don McPhee have  expanded the offerings  available at both their  outlets, and as well as  coin-operated  video  games they now handle  retail sales of records,  tapes, stereo equipment  and   home   electronic  games.  The new Sechelt  amusement centre has 15  coin-operated video  games, challenging the  reflexes of from one to  four players, as well as  foosball games. Previous  high scores are posted on  the games for competitors to aim at, and a  foosball tournament is  planned for the near  future.  The friendly but firm  insistence on high standards of conduct has  assured that the Gibsons  game room has remained  a quality family entertainment spot, and the  same high standards will  be adhered to in the new  Sechelt location.  The rules can basically  be summed up as "No  littering, no swearing,  and no truancy," and  they make for an atmosphere which combines high excitement  with good clean fun for  adults, children and  teenagers alike.  Vedo gets expenses  A decision to make an  exception to board  policy concerning travel  and entertainment expenses for the Economic  Development Officer,  Oddvin Vedo, was passed at last Thursday's  meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board.  Finance chairman,  David Hunter, pointed  out to the board that the  Economic Development  Commission ignored  board policy by agreeing  to flat rates of $170.00  per month auto expenses  and $150.00 per month  entertainment expenses.  and, as finance chairman, he could not approve them unless the  board wanted to make  an addendum to policy  permitting flat rates to  be paid in this case.  The board's representative on the Economic  Development Commission, Jon McRae, told  ihe board that the reason  the commission agreed  to pay a flat rate was  primarily that it ensured  that a budget for these  expenses could be  adhered to. The Commission did not want to  hamper the Development  Officer's ability to travel  and entertain freely in  carrying out his duties  Hunter noted that by  paying the Economic  Development Officer in  this manner, it would  become taxable for him.  Hunter felt that the  board was setting a  dangerous precedent in  making this exception to  policy.

VON ISO  ���HMMMtt Gibsons revitalization  Coast News, August 30,1982  Co-operation needed for programme  Gibsons Council and  Gibsons Harbour Business Association were  told last week by Martin  Thomas, Administrator  of the Downtown Revitalization Programme in  Victoria, that they must  work together to finalize  exactly what they want  for the Gibsons Revitalization Programme.  At a meeting on Wednesday with representatives of both bodies  and of the Economic  Commissiou and the  Chamber of Commerce,  Thomas stressed the importance of co-operation  between the two groups,  outlined the steps that  must be taken by council  to get the $10,000 startup grant, and made very  clear the position of his  department in this time  of economic recession. It  is a back to basics approach, with "survival in  the 80's" the key to all  government spending.  The aim of this programme is to make a  town look as attractive  as possible for as little as  possible and his department feels that this can  best be done by emphasizing marketing,  cleaning up downtown  areas and encouraging  facade improvements.  Grandiose, "frilly" projects are out.  Thomas expressed  considerable admiration  for Gibsons' geographical position and feels  that "we have everything  going for us" with "a  great set of streets".  He outlined the procedure which council  must follow in order to  get the start-up grant and  subsequent funding.  GBHA should first  return the revitalization  plan to the design consultant for cost estimates  on all needed items.  Council must then approve the plan in principle and send it to the  Ministry.  Alderman Strom indicated that this would  not be a problem as  council had already approved the guidelines of  the program.  Then a Specified Area  By-law must be passed  which would indicate  how the loan would be  repaid and how costs  would be shared in the  When the fire siren sounded In Gibsons a week ago Sunday, it was a false alarm.

It is a requirement of the  Municipal Act that any  loan to be repaid over a  period of more than five  years has to have the approval of those affected.  If council applied for  the grant before the Bylaw was enacted and it  was not passed then  council would have to  repay the loan within a  period of one year.  After the By-law is  passed council can then  apply for the $10,000  grant which will enable  working drawings to be  completed for the project.  Advantages which  Gibsons has so far  received under the Programme include a $5,000  initial start up grant,  which has already been  used, and a $50,000  grant for facade treatment for downtown  stores.  A statement by  Thomas that the Revitalization Programme was  not interested in funding  items such as parking,  paving and washrooms,  which are usually the  responsibility of council,  evoked strong protest,  from Alderman Edney in  particular, who felt that  washrooms and improved parking facilities were  a major priority. He had  hoped the programme  would be a way of funding these much needed  facilities on a cost-  sharing basis with council.  Thomas indicated that  as the main aim of his  program is to help a  community get what it  perceives as being important, then if these items  are priorities they could  be approved in the plan.  Both Thomas and  Jack Copland, village  administrator, drew attention to the importance of the concept of  marketing, which means  "good businesses with  good hours", in attracting tpurists and  generating revenue. Both  the Ministry of Small  Businesses and the  Economic Development  Commission will be asked to assist here by offer-  ing workshops on  marketing techniques.  The problems of  financing the Gibsons  Plan generated considerable discussion with  Gary Puckett expressing  dissatisfaction at council's attitude to the provision of tourist facilities  and to the Revitalization  Programme, and council  maintaining the importance of carefully  budgeting its costs at this  time. Copland cautioned  that in 1983 there will be  five per cent restraints or  even rollbacks on programmes so budget  dollars have to work to  give residents all the services they need.  Puckett felt that a  petition signed by over  75 per cent of downtown  merchants showed considerable support for the  programme and he expressed frustration about  the time and energy he  has spent in trying to get  the programme started in  the last two years. Obviously disappointed by  what he considered to be  council's lukewarm attitude he stated he will  close the Revitalization  Programme office in  Lower Gibsons as he  feels the programme did  not get the go-ahead  from council  It was decided that the  Revitalization Plan will  be sent back to the consultant for rough cost  estimates on the "shopping list" of major  priorities, and council  will try to come to grips  with the difficult problem of which residents  will be included in the  Specified Area By-law  and the question of how  costs will be shared.

The winning  team was Geo. Bayford,  Aileen Pinkerton, Dick  Thompson and Marie  Leask. The Twilight golf  get-together will soon be  over for this year,  possibly at the end of  Daylight Saving Time.  How fait the summer  days roll by!

The Men's .Annual  Inter-dub Match with  Seymour proved once  again to be successful in  every aspect. A cool  golfing day was enjoyed  by all with the usual keen  but friendly competition  and tremendous hospitality. The Sunshine  Coast club managed to  reach the halfway point  in being successful, to  claim the annual award  for this tournament, by  defeating Seymour 20W  to 19W on their home  course. On the return  match, September 9 at  Sunshine course the  home team will enter the  match with a three point  buffer. It has been  rumoured about that  three points spread will  not be enough to hold  back the powerful  Seymour team.  Listening to the opinions of our players as to  the likes and dislikes of  our temporary trial of  the new location of no.  16 tee area, it would appear up to this time that  opinions are fairly evenly  divided. A decision will  be made at the September board meeting.  Don't forget to pick  up your "Divot" from  the coffee shop in the  clubhouse.

Once a competitor,  that desire to excel is  always there, Elaine  says, and while she is no  longer in training in the  water, she is working on  developing her skills at  playing squash, a  relatively little-known  sport in Western  Canada. With all of the  energy, talent and determination of "the Mighty  Mouse" at her disposal,  it is undoubted that  Elaine Tanner will be  very good at whatever  she chooses to do.

With my eyeballs hanging down around my  knees and my every step  a miracle in itself, I was  at the mercy of roughly  100 maniacs, who were  wielding golf dubs like  Samurai swords.  My spirits rose when  John Kavanagh, the  tourney's organizer, offered me the use of a golf  Wally Venechuk shows much determination  in the Cedars Golf Tournament...  cart and a chauffeur, so  that I could better  observe the proceedings.  Those same spirits plummeted dramatically when  I learned my driver was  to be Tony Tyler: Try to  imagine Pancho Villa  driving a taxi-cab in  Mexico City at rush  hour. I noticed, as I  stepped with great  trepidation into the golf  cart, that it was made by  Harley Davidson. I  vaguely recalled Tyler  telling me once of his  secret desire to ride with  Hell's Angels, but  wheelies in a golf cart?  Nah.  "Watch this!" Tony  yelled, stepping on the  gas as we descended  wildly from the first tee,  hurdling a pothole and  narrowly missing two  golfers. "I wonder if this  little steel thingy on the  left is the brake," Tyler  pondered, while we raced out of control across  the moguls on the first  fairway. I screamed a lot  for the next hour.  After a harrowing  hour aboard Pancho's  Harley, we finally stopped at the fourth tee  which was serving as a  water-hole. Here I took a  much needed rest and as  well, partook of some liquid fortification. I was  sitting on the grass quietly sipping my drink when  suddenly I noticed all  those around me scatter-  awhile Moe Glrard prefers the subtle approach.  dove to the ground in  time to see a ball go  bouncing by my eyes. A  ball that far out of.  bounds could only  belong to one man, Wally Venechuk, the only  golfer on the course safer  to stand in front of than  behind.  I hid in the bushes until Venechuk had played  through and Tyler had  roared away on his hog,  then started off on foot  for the fifth tee. I was  only halfway up the fairway when I heard the unmistakable voice of Sean  Van Strepen shouting en-  couragaement to one of  the members of his  group, Chris Jones, who  was just preparing an approach shot to the third  green:  "Humbuddy now, it's  you Chris, you're the  one, you Chris, you  Chris, hum it in there big  buddy!" I kept going,  making a mental note to  warn Sean about shagging people's drives and  throwing them back to  them. Golfers tend to get  a bit testy about things  like that.  Jon McRae was the  next golfer I ran into. He  was wearing a pair of  brightly checked plus  fours he claimed had  once been tournament  marshal Bill Ochenfull's  slacks. Bill was about the  right height, alright, but  nobody had ever mentioned to me that he was  colour blind.

He claimed  they had run away when  he was playing a ball in  the woods.  "Oh my God!" He  shouted, looking down  at his feet. "No wonder  I've been playing awful.  There's a bunch of Utile  nails in my shoes!"  "Those are spikes,  Herb," I pointed out.  "That's what I said!"  he screamed. "It's amazing I'm still walkingl"  I stumbled back to the  fourth tee, greatly in  need of further liquid  replenishment, and there  I ran across Alex Skytte,  whom I learned later was  taking time off from  rehearsals of Swan Lake,  just to play golf. Alex  swept onto the fourth tee  with his normal grace  and gentleness.  "Where's the beerl?"  he demanded, as I leaped  out of the way.  "Hey Skytte!" Ken  Johnson yelled out, as he  walked up to the fourth  tee. "Do you get any  points if the club hits you  in the back of the  head?" Ah...no, Ken.  Hearing word of a  kissing booth between  the fifth and sixth holes,  I headed in that direction, almost missing Art  McGinnis in a very clever  Bruno Gerussi disguise,  as he ambled down the  course signing autographs for all the  youngsters. Before I  could reach the kissing  booth, I was accosted  by Big Al Abrams, who  had decided in all humility, to grant me an interview.  "Well, Bruce," he  began, putting his arm  around my shoulders,  "it all started in a one  room shack in  Indiana..."  "Actually Al, I'm a  little pressed for time..."  "NeVer," ' Al' said,  tightening his arm  around my shoulder,  "never rush a finely tuned athlete. You could  throw me off my game."  Assuming you had one,  Al.  The kissing booth was  truly an oasis. Six lovely  Gibsons girls took pity  on a poor, harassed  reporter and gave him  food and shelter, not to  mention a few kisses and  several B-52's. Later that  same afternoon...  As the tournament  wound up, I staggered  down to the last few  holes, found Dave  Roberts grumbling to  himself at fifteen.  "Wonder if the pointy  end would work any better," I heard him say as I  went by.  At the last hole I  found Mo Girard sitting  on the grass and shaking  his head slowly. He looked up as I approached.  "You know, I think  there's something wrong  with these clubs," he  said.  "What's that, Mo?" I  asked.  "The guy holding  them." On Saturday he  was not alone.

Hauka  Mrs. Bea Rankin who  is well known on the  coast for her many involvements, community,  church and organization  wise, has been honoured  by most of the citizens of  our peninsula. A few  nights ago, we of the  Eastern Star Anally were  able to pay tribute to this  fine member with an'  Honour Night to mark  the closing months of her  term as Grand Representative to the Province of  New Brunswick,  representing the Grand  Chapter British Columbia Order of the Eastern  Star and her home  chapter Mt. Elphinstone  as well.  Mrs. Rankin has made  many visits to other  chapters in B.C., eastern  Canada and the United  States in her office of  Grand Representative as  well as her other commitments in and around  the coast. It was a really  happy night for her and  our   Mt.   Elphinstone  members as we showed  in verse and song how we  thought of her.  Starting out with a  small travelling case containing a Barbie doll; as  our friend went from officer to officer she was  presented with a piece of  wearing apparel appropriate to the time and  season of the year, including rain wear - verses  were read instructing her  to perform in a certain  manner at various affairs. When the Worthy  Matron Dorothy Parsons and the rest of the  officers expressed their  feelings in song, the  members and visitors  congratulated her also.  In the social room,  visiting Grand Representatives, Worthy Matrons  from the lower mainland  and members of Bea's  Rose and Laurel Past  Matrons club along with  her husband Bill Rankin  and her close friend June  Wilson joined all of us in  a very happy and fun  time.

On   the   26th:    An  AM/FM cassette, an  equalizer amp and two  speakers valued at $450  were stolen from a vehicle parked at Camp  Sunrise.  Gibsons RCMP wishes  to advise motorists driving the wrong way into  Bal's Lane that in the  future they will be enforcing the law regarding  this dangerous infraction.  SECHELT RCMP:  On the 20th: At least  $3,000 worth of personal  property was stolen from  a logging camp worker in  the Jervis Inlet area.  Police are still investigating.  On the 21st: Some bottles of beer were stolen  from a cooler kept under  a trailer at the Coho  Marina in Madeira Park.  Another theft from a  cooler was reported from  the Porpoise Bay Campground; food was  stolen. Police have no  suspects.  A residence in Selma  Park was broken into  and minor articles were  taken. The theft could  have occurred any time  between April 1982 and  August 1982.  On the 24th: A wallet  belonging to John Pass,  a summer resident of  Madeira Park, was  stolen from his car while  it was parked at the IGA  parking lot or at the  Bathgates parking lot.  The wallet contained a  small amount of cash  and some ID.  Insulation and panelling were stolen from an  unfinished house on  Nickerson Road in Davis  Bay. The house had just  been purchased by new  owners the day previous  to the theft. Police are  still investigating.  On the 26th: There was a  single motor vehicle accident on East Porpoise  Bay Road, in which a  young boy was struck.  Seven-year-old Rod  Mulbany was playing at  the side of the road when  a car driven by Marianne  Dallman came by. She  saw the boy and moved  to the other side of the  road to avoid him. The  boy stood up and ran into her car. Rod Mulbany  was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital where he was  held overnight for observation. He sustained  minor   injuries   and  several small cuts and at  last report is doing just  fine.  There was a report of  theft and vandalism  from the Madeira Park  Estates. A garden hose  was stolen and fuses  were disconnected in a  couple of vehicles nearby. Three youths were  seen in the area at the  time, but could not be  identified by witnesses.  Police are still investigating an incident in  which two people were  detained by three others  up at the Jackson Logging Road in Wilson  Creek. Three adult males  in their twenties are now  in police custody and are  facing charges of  unlawful confinement,  possession of a  dangerous weapon and  with pointing a firearm.  It appears that the men  are from Saskatoon,  Vancouver and Gibsons.  Police are still investigating.  Sechelt RCMP  Detachment welcomes a  new member, Staff-  Sergeani Doug B.

"People automatically  go to the maximum to  protect their options,"  he said.  The board agreed with  Hunter and recommended that staff prepares a  preliminary budget for  1983 based on the  amount spent in 1982.  Hunter pointed out that  although the budget  must be finalized by  November for presentation to Municipal Affairs, it could be revised  as late as March, 1983.  It was also pointed out  that most functions carried out by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  are self-supporting, but  there are items such as  environmental health  functions that the board  has no direct control  over as they are contracted out.

Along  with garden produce,  there is fruit to can, and  this year there is a  bumper blackberry crop.  On Thursday at Davis  Bay there is an abundance of freshly picked  fruit for sale at quite  reasonable prices; a  modest expenditure now  and a few hours of work  will supply you and your  family with home-  canned fruit and jams  for the entire winter  months. Blackberries are  free, of course, except  for the labour involved  in picking, but with just  a little effort you can  easily pick enough for  jams and jellies, to  freeze, and, if you are  really ambitious, to  make wine. If you won't  have enough time now to  make your jam and jelly,  freeze the berries; it is  easier to make jelly with  frozen berries, because  as they thaw, a great deal  of juice is produced. If  you have a blender, you  could try blackberry  smoothies, or a more  adult blackberry daquiri,  using lots of crushed ice,  lots of blackberries, a little lime concentrate and  the liquor of your  choice, such as rum,  vodka or gin. Try hot  berries with crepes or on  pancakes and then there  are the pies, crumbles  and cobblers to bake.  In the garden, keep up  with the tomatoes; pick  by Chak-Chak  If you like to relax  over a glass of wine or a  cup of coffee while you  listen to classical string  music of an evening  while watching the setting sun tint the hills with  a rosy hue, then Teredo  Square is the place. As  the shadows fall and  blend into dusk you can  move to a table inside the  Cafe Pierrot where you  can read the day's menu  on the blackboard. The  cafe's management has  found   the  blackboard  the best way to keep up  with the ever-changing  list of delicious food that;  is being Offered to tjieir,,  patrons. '  On Monday, Tuesday'  and Wednesday evenings  they offer a special at a  reasonable package  price. Last week one had  a choice of Soup or  Salad and Red Snapper  with mushroom sauce or  Chicken Cacciatore or a  peppery meat dish called  Cevapcici, Dessert and  Coffee.

The Cafe Pierrot is  earning a reputation as  thfc'bjstro of' the Sunshine Coast. Many  tourists have dropped in  for a quick something to  eat and have tarried for  hours to enjoy the good  vibes, food and music.  Many are impressed and  surprised to find an  establishment of this  kind in a small rural  area. I heard of one  young lady who had  friends from California  visiting with her in Vancouver and she brought  them up to Sechelt for  dinner at the Cafe Pierrot.  Even if you are not  able to have a full meal,  an evening snack or  dessert with coffee is a  great way to listen to the  music. I did this on two  evenings when the Bozar  Trio from Toronto were  the guest musicians. This  group entertained with  street songs and music of  the renaissance both instrumental and vocal,  providing a pleasant  change from the usual  kind of music one hears  today. Sea you.  all the ripe ones immediately and if you  have many that are  orange, take them also  and ripen in the house.  Tomatoes don't need  quite as much water  now, but don't parch  them. If you still have  many green and orange  fruit on the vines when  the season is through,  pick them all and bring  into the house to ripen.  Green tomatoes make  wonderful chutney, and  mixed with apples in a  pie, they are delicious; 1  like them fried in butter  for breakfast. Tomatoes  are easy to can (put a leaf  of basil in some of your  jars for a taste treat) and  may also be frozen to use  in stews, sauces, etc.  Keep picking your  cucumbers and squash,  as they ripen and reach a  good size. Don't forget  to water the plants well  now; a mulch around the  squash plants will help  keep them moist.  If you have  sunflowers, watch for  them lo ripen. When the  sunflower head is  thoroughly dry and ripe  it is brown with no trace  of green left in it.  However, the trouble  with leaving your  sunflowers in until this  point is reached, is that  the birds will likely have  harvested the seeds for  you, or the head will  have shattered and dropped the seeds to the  ground. To prevent attack by birds, cover the  heads with cheesecloth  or you may cut the heads  when the seeds are large  enough and dry them  elsewhere. Cut with a  couple of feet of stem  left on and hang to dry in  a well-ventilated space.  Brush out the seeds with  a stiff brush or use a  fish-sealer. If you find  some of the seed is still a  little wet, lay the seeds  out to dry further before  storing. Shake or stir  your seeds every week to  prevent mustiness.  Potatoes should be  dug about now. The best  time to harvest is when  the soil is dry. The  potatoes to be stored  should have a skin rough  enough not to rub off.  Lift the tubers carefully,  so as not to damage the  skin, lay out in the sun  for a couple of hours to  dry a little, then store in  a cool, dark cellar, frost-  free and away from all  light.  As you harvest and  clean up in the garden,  add the plants that are  done to the compost pile.  Put layers of soil and  manure between the  green matter; you may  also add rock powder to  each layer of soil. Winter  potting soil may be  prepared soon; sifted  compost mixed with  loam makes a good  material to use. Don't  forget to cover your  compost heap during the  winter months, to protect it from the heavy  winter rain.  4.V-  ��f*  ^  1-fc  LEE TAYLOR     EVO MARCON  JOIN US  We're both donating  $20 EACH  to the Arts Centre  for the purchase of a   '^iP^canerCaryjng   I'm donating   to tho Dudley Carter Carving Fund  NAME   ADDRESS   Make cheques payable to 'Sunshine  Coast   Arts   Council,   Box   1565,  Sechelt, B.C. or Phone 885-5412 for  more information  On  IncludoCap  In Your Hint  This Fa*  Sunihina Coast  BUSINESS MANAGEMENT 103  Hadple* of SupanrWoa  Three CretHtt  Foe: 346.50  Starting Dote: Tuesday, Sapt. 14th  15 Weeks, 7-10 pm.

No solution in sight  v by Don Lockstead  MLA Mackenzie  C NDP finance critic  Dave Slupich, labelled  ihe April 5 budgel a  "masterpiece of deception".  ��� At that time we argued  that it was a fundamentally dishonest document, designed to  mislead British Columbians, and destined for  obsolescence by summer.  . Now, by the government's own admission,  this latest attempt to  maintain the Social  Credit myth of financial  Reggie The Sweep  886-7484  responsibility, has been  totally discredited. Instead or the projected  deficit of $358 million,  the government now admits the real budgetary  shortfall will approach  $l billion. And, according to forecasts by the  Conference Board of  Canada, B.C. could face  a budgetary deficit of as  much as $1.5 billion.  For the sixth consecutive year since Bill  Bennett was elected  premier, the Socreds  have failed to balance  the budget. This year's  enormous deficit, and  uprecedented debt,  reflects this government's failure to do  anything about the  deepening provincial recession. And the lower  the provincial economy  falls - the less government revenue is generated. So, despite recent  tax-gouging and multiple  fee and licence increases,  Ihe Socred's fundamental lack of economic  leadership has ensured  that they can't make  ends meet.  Abandoning responsibility for economic  leadership, the premier  has decided to look  tough - fighting imaginary villains and  scapegoats amongst  public employees. The  purely political quality  of this smokescreen has  become evident as the  premier, in desperation,  has continued to change  the rules. And, this past  week, the premier has attempted to give the impression of action by  simply shifting jobs  within the cabinet.  The last-minute  cabinet shuffle was a  desperate and cynical  political move. No one  seriously believes that  economic relief will  follow such a cosmetic  drama.  Unfortunately, fake  political drama is the  most we can expect from  this government.  The premier should  call an election and give  British Columbians the  opportunity to elect a  government committed  lo getting them bad: to  work.  Cap courses  for the fall  Capilano College is offering three credit courses this fall in Sechelt.  Geography 106, and  English 190 carry university transfer credits. Business Management 163  carries credits within the  College's business management programme. All  courses are held at the  Sechelt Learning Centre  on Inlet Avenue.  Geography 106 is concerned with regional  geography, and both  historical and contemporary issues in British  Columbia. This course  examines a range of  topics - from the province's geologic background, weather and  climate to natural  resource use, energy use,  land claims, preservation  of agricultural lands,  and minority groups and  racism.  The format for Geography 106 will be lectures, films, simulation  games, and slide presentations. Classes are informal and discussion is  encouraged. The course  runs for fifteen weeks  starting Wednesday,  September 8, at 6:00  p.m. The cost is $46.50  and the instructor is  Brett McGillivray.  English 190 is an intensive writing workshop  in which students are encouraged to develop  their individual styles in  different fiction forms.  The student's work is the  basic material for the  course.  People can register for  ihese credit courses in  person at the Sechell  Learning Centre on Inlet  Avenue, between 12:30  and 7:00 p.m. Monday  lo Friday; or can call  885-9310 to have  registration forms mailed. Interested persons  are urged to register as  soon as possible, because  the courses must have a  minimum enrollment to  run.
