The alarm was raised by neighbours in Herb's absence.  - John Hurnvlde fftiiln  Dry-land marina for Sechelt?  Hall's hopes high  by George Matthews  I Sechelt council last week was treated to a presentation of a unique scheme for developing local tourism,  ;ai its regular Wednesday, January 20th, meeting in  the Village council chambers.  , Henry Hall of Cameo Industries entertained council with the ingenious plan to promote a "dry-land"  marina to be located in the isthmus between Porpoise  Bay and the Strait.  Boat owners, suggested Hall, could leave their  boats on trailers in the dry-land marina (essentially a  parking lot for boats) and could have them hauled lo  the bay or the strait, depending on where they wanted  to fish that day.  The dry-land marina idea is one part of a larger  plan lo promote what Hall called "Royal Reach -The  (nland Sea". The plan calls for government and en  trepreneur to work together to promote Sechelt as  "Fisherman's Village". The scheme would, in Hall's  words, "...double the assessment value of (he  village... bring higher income for business... result in  spin-off land sales and... bring tourists lo Sechelt."  Hall plans to promote his plan at the next boat  show with a video show displaying the beauties and  wonders of Sechelt Inlet. He asked council for its  support in advertising his idea, which would include  boat tours on the Malibu Papoose to show off our  "inland sea".  Council agreed Hall's plan is and would have to remain within the guidelines of the community plan  and offered no objections to his plan to promote the  project.  Alderman Charles Lee strongly supported Hall's  views on the need to attract tourists to our area to increase the tax base.  Expansion of Seamounl Industrial Park is becoming a pressing issue al Gibsons village planning  meetings. The 17-acre site along Highway 101 is  reaching Ihe point where Ihe lasl 10 lots are being  developed. Soon light industry coming lo Gibsons  will have nowhere to go and may have to locate outside Ihe village.  Gibsons has applied to the Economic Land Use  Commission (ELUC) for removal of 30 acres of land  adjacent to the industrial park extending as far as  Reed Road, lo be used for future industrial development. However, its efforts to gel the 30 acres plus  another 90 acres out'of Ihe designated Agricultural  Land Reserve (ALR) have been unsuccessful for  almost two years.  During recent Agricultural Land Commission  (ALC) hearings on ihe Sunshine Coast in December,  the request was again brought lo ihe commission. A  letter received in January informed Gibsons council  that the commission was not willing lo look  favourably on the application. It was slated that the  land is useful for agricultural purposes. Another  local application to have land excluded from Ihe  ' ALR failed lo gel Land Commission approval lasl  .i^week.  1 "They are making sure we slay stagnant," deputy  mayor Diane Strom told the planning committee  ? Monday. "Municipal Affairs has turned down our  j three recent requests for expansion of our boundaries  ij and Ihe ELUC won'l release large parcels of ALR  .S.land within our boundaries. Yel Chris Woodward  (Municipal Affairs) (old us lhat despite talk of  * restructuring it would be "business as usual". Il  * seems we are getting ihe runaround and aren't getting  j anywhere".  I Council decided to pursue ils request for removal  of ALR land at ALC offices in Vancouver in early  February.  "A show of strength is needed on our part," staled  Alderman Larry Labonte'. "The Agricultural Land  Reserve is not good enough for farming and will be  much more useful if il is divided into lots. Commercial farming on ihe ALR parcels could never be practical, wilh Ihe type of soil we have here."  Gibsons council took exception lo the statement  made by ALC representatives in December lhal it is  possible "lo grow potatoes in gravel". They felt the  statement was facetious and flippant and showed the  .unwillingness of Ihe ELUC to consider the Gibsons  ,village appHcaliojfseriously..     ..    >.    .....:-'.

Some  acreage (30) would be for industrial park expansion,  some for commercial expansion behind Sunnycrest  Mall, some for multi-family residential housing and  some for single-family housing lots.  Gibsons planning commiltee recommended Monday that if expansion of the industrial park onto  ALR land is nol approved, specified area by-law will  be introduced by council to have existing industries  pay for storm draining work at the park.  Ten times usual number  If ihe 30 acres is released from ihe ALR, then a requirement of all future subdivision approvals al the  industrial park will be thai storm drainage work must  be installed by the developer.  By ex-mayor Boucher  SPCA fund  offer made  Former Mayor of Sechelt, Merv. Boucher, has offered to assist the local branch of the SPCA in  establishing a fund lhat will give the society a permanent monthly return to augment its present income.  The Boucher proposal, however, requires the cooperation of animal lovers on the Sunshine Coast.  Through a charitable trust fund he administers,  Boucher has agreed to match dollar for dollar every  donation made lo the SPCA up to a maximum of  $5,000 provided the money is set aside in a special  trust fund and not used for any other purpose.  The Boucher proposal would provide Ihe Society  with a minimum of $10,000 which, at only 12% interest, would yield $120 every monlh. The yield  would increase steadily as the interest is compounded. Hopefully, donations would continue over the  years and eventually members of the Society are  hopeful that the SPCA would be able to own its own  premises.  Donations in support of the Boucher proposal on  behalf of the SPCA can be sent to the Sunshine Coast  SPCA, P.O. Box 405, Gibsons, B.C.  30th Anniversary  Mothers' March  January 24th lo February I si has been declared  Kinsmen Mothers' March Week throughout B.C.  This year marks the 30th anniversary of ihe founding  of the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation (KRF),  whose services lo disabled British Columbians are  funded by the annual March.  Almost 30,000 volunteers will participate in the  1982 Mothers' March, making it one of the-largest  door-to-door campaigns in the province. This tradition of the personal appeal was begun in 1953 with  the first hour-long 'porchlight' blitz co-ordinated by  local Kinsmen Clubs, ihe Mothers' March on Polio.  Thai year, Kinsmen and volunteers raised $143,000  to help those stricken during the polio epidemics  which swepl the province. This year, the March must  raise in excess of $1.6 million lo maintain the level of  services offered by the Foundation lo disabled  children and adults.  Volunteers wearing bright blue Marcher's lags will  be canvassing their neighbourhoods from January  24th to February 1st.  Appeals flood assessment office  Local construction workers formed an "information line" at the construction gate at the Canfor Mill in  Port Mellon last week, to protest hiring out-of-town workers. About 100 trades and construction workers  stayed off work Wednesday in support of the local Labourers Union position.  -Year i'amrll rhuni  Seeking hiring priority  Locals protest layoffs  by Vene Parnell  A one-day protest by local construction workers  took place at Canfor Forest Products pulp mill in  Port Mellon, Wednesday, January 20th. An "information line" kept about 100 people off the job while  negotiations between the Labourers Union and construction management took place in Vancouver.  Twelve local men from the Labourers Union, local  #602, carried signs stating "I want to work", but  they did not try to stop mill workers or other  tradesmen from entering the mill. However, their line  was honoured by about 100 men employed on  various trades and construction contracts at the mill,  while Canfor pulp production went on as usual.  .The men were protesting recent lay-offs by Dillingham Construction Co., the largest of eight outside  contractors working at the Canfor site. Dillingham  has been working on an electrical contract and is  building the work camp near the site, which will accommodate 300 construction workers. Just before  Christmas, 22 men were laid off, some of them local  workers and some from Powell River and Vancouver, according to Walter Valancius, Dillingham  construction foreman.  Valancius stated that there is no hiring being done  now of either local people or out-of-town workers,  because new construction contracts have not yet been  awarded.  i Bart Bourguignon, shop steward for local (7602  said the union has 24 members on the Sunshine Coast  ind 15 of them are out of work. Only four union  Jnembers are working at the Canfor site. "Last year,  they let six local guys off and kept the Vancouver  rnen on the job. It's not fair to the people who live  here, to bring men from out-of-town to do the job.  The carpenters were able to insist on local hiring lasl  year - that's what we want."  Valancius stated there have been cases where local  people were not hired because they have nol taken  specialized training courses provided by the union ai  Haney.  As a result of negotiations between the Labourers  Union and construction management Wednesday,  assurances were given to local #602 that when layoffs occurred, out-of-town workers'would go first,  said Bourguignon. Local men are advised to keep in  contact with construction foremen at the site, to let  them know they are available for work. Bourguignon  stated he has been advised he should notify union  management in Vancouver of any cases where hiring  of local people is overlooked and said he is satisfied  that the local workers have made their case. "All we  want is a fair chance."  The Sunshine Coast Area Assessment office in  Sechelt, which is responsible for property  assessments for the area from Bowen Island lo  Powell River has received more than 3000 appeals  against property assessments, a figure nearly ten  times the number received last year.  Mr. Ray Winterburn, Area Assessor told ihe Coast  News that while this was an unusually high number  of appeals, his staff of 15 is handling ihe mountain of  paper work efficiently and has worked very hard lo  make sure the statutory February 1st date for assessment court is met. Winterburn said lhat last year's  367 appeals were handled by one court and l hose  making court appearances were allowed as much as  20 minutes to make their appeals. This year he has  asked for two more courts lo handle the increase in  appeals and those appearing will have to try lo be  more succinct in making l heir cases.  Despite the fact lhat the office is working at 140%,  extra staff has noi been required.  Assessment notices were sent lo approximately  26,000 properly owners in ihe entire area, 18,000 of  which were sent lo owners between Porl Mellon and  Egmont.  Following ihe deadline for appeals, which was lasl  Wednesday, January 20th, Ihe appeals are processed,  sent to Victoria and conn limes are set and mailed lo  ihose making appeals. Mr. Winterburn expects lhat  not all those who sent appeal Idlers will appear in  court, but those who do will have lo supply prool  lhat their properly is in fact, over or under value.  This can be done by showing some evidence of true  value or damage lo Ihe properly which makes il  worth less than estimated.  ON THE INSIDE...  Community News...'

Joe  Uae Sheridan  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  An epidemic  of dishonesty  There is a malaise afoot among  Canadian politicians these days, a  certain disinclination lo speak Ihe  truth. Il may be approaching  epidemic proportions.  Last week we refrained from  criticizing B.C. Attorney-General  Alan Williams on the grounds thai  he had had Ihe courage to make a  very difficult decision on the Olson  case. Had Mr. Williams had the  equal and necessary courage to tell  the citizens of this province for-  thrightly what he had done it would  have been much lo his credit. His initial waffling about the fact that he  had made the decision to make ihe  payment to Olson's trust fund did  him no credit whatsoever.  It may also have lessened the trust  we had in the distinguished looking  politician who assured us last year  that allegations of wrong-doing on  the part of members of his department were entirely without foundation.  The essential dishonesty is also  mirrored in the actions of two other  cabinet ministers in the mailer of  the controversial assessments. When  Municipal Affairs Minister Bill  Vander Zalm and Finance Minister  Hugh Curtis announced righteously  that (hey too were protesting their  assessments they betray an altitude  of contempt for the volers of this  province.  If we cannot hold cabinet  ministers, particularly the Minister  of Finance, responsible for the  morass of tax policies or lack of  them in which we find ourselves  who can we blame?  The shifting of the burden of  educational financing from properly owners was recommended in the  McMath Report which had been  turned in when the present government took office. During the last six  years it has been a consistent policy  of the present provincial government to shift more and more of the  burden of taxation to the property  owner while shifting more and more  of the decision-making powers to  their own centralized bureaucracy.  It is dishonest and hypocritical of  Vander Zalm and Curtis to attempt  to leap aboard the bandwagon of  taxpayers' protest when they have  been for more than six years a part  of the body of ultimate responsibility which has systematically increased the burden of taxes on property  owners.  This is by no means a definitive  catalogue of the instances of deceit  and double-dealing lhal politicians  in power, both federally and provincial^, are perpetrating on the people of this country. Our system of  government, which has as its fundamental tenet that the people must  be trusted, deserves and demands  belter.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  One mil represents one  thousandth part of the assessed  value of your properties,  therefore, as was the case in  Sechelt recently where new  home values were $75,000 the  home owner pays $7.50 for each  mil levied. He would pay $22.50  per year (less than 50 cents per  week) if the regional board approved the five year plan with a 3  mil levy.

HE" S����m^  T^>r TujekJTV "BocK*.   \*l�� qet"ovj<r  I found myself in a little philosophic hot water  in a bar the other day. It  certainly wasn't the first  time and it may not be  the last but there were, I  think, some seeds of interest in the matter that  I'd like to chew on for a  moment or two.  It was early in the  evening, that time when  after just one or two jugs  everyone at the table is  convinced that he or she  is indeed a fine and l'<  thright fellow and I  assembled company the  finest that could be  sought.  One of the company  was a face that was new  to me and after an exchange or two I committed the apparently unpardonable offence of  asking whether he was  American or Canadian.  The wave of vocal disapproval which greeted the,  question was unanimous.  "What kind of question is that?" demanded  the new face. He went on  to tell me that he equated  the question with those  enthusiasts of the stars  who insist on knowing  your birth sign so that  they will know what to  expect from you.  "We're all the same  here, John" said the only lady at the table with  sharp disapproval.  "It doesn't matter  where we've come from.  This is the melting pot,"  said the only American  at the table. (The new  face was from Northern  Ontario as it turned out.)  "Yes," said the lady,  herself a Canadian. "It's  not important whether  Brand X is an American  or Canadian. He's an anthropologist."  What is missing in this  accounting is the  vehemence of the  response that my  relatively innocent question had occasioned. It  was as if I had broken  some code of social  behaviour and for the  life of me I can't understand what that code  could be.  For my part, I take it  for granted that the factors of heredity and environment are at play in  every human personality. This has nothing  whatever to do with  value judgements that I  seek to make about this  background or that. II  has simply to do with the  fact that I find interest in  the shaping of a mind as  well as its immediate  contents and I believe  that it is simply a fact  that the early environment does have some in  fluence on the shaping of  the personality and opinions of any given individual. 1 did not realize  that to believe so was to  be guilty of some latter  day heresy.  The hostility my innocent question engendered  precluded any worthwhile discussion of the  matter at the time but the  matter continued to  haunt my thoughts.  "This is the melting  "pot," the Arr��ncan"fiad  said by way of denying  that early environment is  important.  Forgive me if I insist  on letting history obtrude into anything as  comfortable as a well-set  mind but the point must  be made that the  'melting pot' concept is  foreign to Canada  historically. Only an  American would find the  phrase coming readily to  the tongue. The United  States has sought to  assimilate the waves of  newcomers who comprise the population of  that country by means of  'the melting pot'. They  have been largely successful in so doing but it  is debatable whether they  have enriched their country in the process.  In Canada, the  assimilation has been less  extreme. There is more  ' of a mosaic pattern in  the Canadian population. Apart from the inescapable fact that one  of the founding peoples  of this country has a  vigorous culture which  they were guaranteed the  right to preserve at the  time the country was  formed, it seems to me  many mini-cultures con  tinue to flourish in  Canada. It also seems to  me that this, though it  might add to the difficulties of the country,  also adds richly to its  potential as a vibrantly  tolerant society. 'A  melting pot' we are not  and I think it a good  thing.  When the lady said,  "We are all the same  here," I tried to say as I  have many times before  thV*we all have much  more in common than  that which divides us.  But dammit, that doesn't  mean the differences  aren't interesting.  Belonging to a society in  which all were in fact the  same would be terminally dull. We are not 'all  the same' and I cannot  accept that we should  pretend out of God  knows what kind of  superficiality papering  over insecurity.  I suppose that what  I'm trying to say is that  all of us at the table were  technically or were about  to become Canadians.  We are apparently all  residents of the Sunshine  Coast on the West Coast  of Canada. Yet it seems  to me to be the Canadian  way, historically, to accept our differences as  well as that which we  share.  I like it that way. I  want nothing to do with  'melting pots'. I see no  value in belonging to an  amorphous mass the  components of which  have been rendered indistinguishable one from  the other. As they might  say in Quebec: "Vive les  differences".

If you think  mail service is slow now,  imagine how long it took  to deliver an unpleasant  message in those days.  Presumably when that  mail service began, the  sender would just explain what he had to say  and send the messenger  off to deliver the news by  word of mouth. It was  not until the ancient  Greeks began to run out  of messengers that they  invented the sealed  envelope.  Killing the messenger  was the custom in Greece  3,000 years ago. You  would think that civilization has improved since  then but the fact is we  have become far more  skilled at harassing the  messenger than even the  Greeks could have imagined.  We don't even have to  talk about the Canadian  Postal Service; those  poor folks become the  object of criticism and  ridicule all the time. The  media just can't resist a  story about the marriage  proposal sent by mail 30  years ago that just arrived last week. Despite the  fact that the post office  handles billions of pieces  of mail, it's always the  one piece that goes missing that gets the attention. Maybe it's because  the missing letter  scenario is sort of  biblical - like the lamb  that went astray.  ' No, we don't have to  look at the post office to  find examples of killing  the messenger. Let's take  the case of the poor  .assessment officer. Early  last year, the B.C.  Assessment Commissioner let it be known to  the various regional  directors of assessments  that for some years the  appraisals on homes in  B.C. were too low -under  valued. The man in the  street, or, more precisely, the man in the house,  had known this for  years. He knew damn  well that while his home  and property were  assessed at, say, $65,000,  he could probably sell if  for twice that.  The B.C. Assessments;  Act requires that a house  be appraised at its nory  mal value, so, once the:  message had been passed;  down through regional,  directors to area  assessors to the appraisers themselves, that,  they had better come up  with appraisals that  reflected true value, the  appraisers went out andl.  did their jobs. /  When assessment!  notices were sent out, the  people receiving them,  went through a brief  flush of entrepreneurial  pride (not unlike an '�����>  tack of instant greed) o��  seeing the true value of  what they owned. When,  however, the realization  struck that their property,  taxes would be based on  this figure, pride of!  ownership suddenly  turned to fear, quickly,  followed by anger,     i ,.,  And just who are they,  property owners angry  at? The Assessment Act?  The Minister of Finance?,  The Assessment Com-,  missioner? No. The proi  perty owner is mad at the  appraiser and the area  assessment office. This  same angry property  owner, multiplied 3,000  times (the number of  owners appealing]  assessments from Bowen  Island to Powell River)  might whistle a different  tune if he had his house  appraised for sale purposes. Then you'd he:  the song that goes "l  that all there is?"  The message was,  clear. "Appraise property at its true value". Thfi  messenger, the poor ar>j  praiser, delivered thj  message; now he's getting the blame.  There is another si|  to the picture, howevej  Across the street froi  me is a new house that  been for sale for ei|  months. So far the tn  market value of th;  place is zero. I wondi  what its assessed value  is?  In any case, the point  is that no matter how  unpleasant your assessment message was this  year, don't kill the poor  messenger - give a littf  thought to where  message came from.  ljuur  little  the  Towards a wider perspective  The Middle East  by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones  The Polish crisis has  dominated the attention  of the world since the  military takeover in early  July.  It has in fact overshadowed that other area  of major diplomatic concern: The Middle East.  In fact it is thought that  the recent annexation of  the Golan Heights by the  Israeli government was  timed to occur during a  time when the world's attention was diverted  towards Poland.  The annexation of the  Golan has had a  dramatic effect upon  Middle East politics. It  has effectively provided  the glue for a unified  Arab stand on Israel and  has led to a shift away  from the moderate view.  This view, which  dominated the recent  Saudi peace proposal  and the abortive Arab  summit conference at  Fez, was that the right  for Israel to exist would  be guaranteed in exchange for the setting up  of an independent  Palestine state on the  West Bank and at Gaza.  This proposal, which  was rejected by the  Israelis and by hard line  Arab States like Syria,  Libya and South Yemen,  gained much support in  Europe and in the United  States. It was seen as a  replacement for the  Camp David accord.  Now the situation is  radically changed. Arab  states from Saudi Arabia  to Libya have a common1  cause. Not only' has the  annexation outraged  them, but also the lack  of a real Americaji  response to Begin's actions has been seen  expression of a lack  real will to deal with tl  Israelis. The Saudis ai  the Egyptians, the maji.  American allies in the  area, see grave danger in  being too closely allied to  this policy.  The Saudis are considering opening up  diplomatic relations wii  the Soviet Union  have already taken steps  to normalize relations  with Libya. The Egyptian President Mubarak  has to be more cautiofls  for the present. It is it  the Egyptian interest jb  stay on good terms wijn  the Israelis until tie  return of the Sinai ft  April, as outlined p  Camp David. But it Is  probable that after April  there will be overt movljs  by the Egyptians tp  adopt as much mi  neutralist foreign polii  akin to Nasser's in tl  SO's. The Egyptians  not wish to remain in  isolated position tl  found themselves in as -  result of Sadat's policies'.  The Middle East is still  the most volatile area in  the world.

My father carried on with the country  medical practice extending from Port Mellon  to Halfmoon Bay with a  population of about  3,000 throughout World  War II until he was  seventy-six year old. In  19461 got compassionate  leave from the Canadian  Army Medical Corps to  relieve him and spent the  next three busy years at  the medical practice on  the peninsula until my  older brother Hugh took  over in 1949.  Gibsons always is a  great attraction for me,  for my relatives and  many friends there.  I want to add my New  Year's wish to Kathy  Love and Rob Hagar for  good success in 1982 in  the restoration of the  'Inglis' place.

To date we  have accomplished a  great deal. We have been  selected by the Provincial government's  representatives to be one  of the towns and villages  to tecdve this important  pVdgram.

A rather dirty Ford  pick-up with a small contractors' fuel tank in the  box stops on the beach-  side of Highway 101 near  Westly road. A little  black kitten appears on  the ground at the drivers'  side; a pair of man's legs  follows.

Minibus  thoughts  Editor:  Re: the mini-bus service  An infuriating situation has pointed out that  since the take-over of the  Mini-bus, service has  been cut; those who can  least afford to are forced  to pay and those without  vehicles are left stranded.  Friday, because the  vehicle I depend on  broke down, I was  unable to get my child  from Gower Point up to  the Medical Clinic in  order that she might take  the Mini-bus to her  daycare in Wilson Creek.  I called the office to arrange to have her picked  up closer to home. I met  with a flat refusal - no  exceptions! The closest  that the bus would come  was over two miles from  my home, a distance too  great for a pre-schooler  to walk. My child was  left stranded by a  bureaucrat who fell that  strict adherence to their  questionable time  schedule was more important than making an  exception for humanistic;  reasons.  It is important to be  able to get around - even  if you don't have a vehiy;  cle, and I thought thef  new "public" transit'  system might help. Unfortunately, so far this  has not proven to be the  case.  However, rather than  knuckle-rapping the present Mini-bus administration, 1 would  like to join the growing  lobby for further extension of the Mini-bus service.  Catherine McManus  Billngualism opposed  Editor: ������ >" '������<  It has come to my attention and many others  that we have in our community a gun-toting non-  English speaking person  being paid very good  wages to sit quietly and  observe life while learning English at the taxpayers expense.  Yes, we and other  communities are having  placed in our midst  French R.C.M.P.'s who  speak little or no  English. Just how much  added expense are we,  the taxpayers going to be  put to for some federal  experiment? How long  will it take one of these  French R.C.M.P.'s to  become a useful law enforcing officer. in our  community? Six months,  a year and at what cost,  $15,000 - $25,000.  It's about time we  started examining  federal and provincial  squandering in this province. My interest is not  political, rather the safety of myself and others.  After all, can you imagine one of us running  loose in Quebec unable  to communicate with the  people and carrying a  fire arm? They have a  responsible position of  enforcing law and protecting our families and  undoubtably our  lifestyles and family relations are different from  that of theirs in Quebec.  Please print this letter  and I look forward to  seeing your comments  and those of others.  Sincerely,  Len Seigo  P.O. Box 1482  Sechelt, B.C.  Editor's Note:  The Editor has consulted a French-  Canadian member of our  staff on this serious  linguistic issue and has  learned that while In  English the sound of an  officer's service revolver  Is "bang-bang", In  French It can be "bing-  blng", "pouf-pouf",  "pan-pan" or "boum-  boum". We can't argue  against getting four  sounds for the price of  one.  Perspective (cont'd.)  of the super-powers,  keeps the tinder always  dry. This latest twist by  the Israelis and the  hardening Arab positions do not bode well  for the future. It is obvious that a formula  must be found for satis  fying the demands of  Israel and the Palestinians. Whether or not  cooler heads will prevail  depends to a great extent  on the real support  which conciliatory  policies obtain from the  United States.

It seemed appropriate as the Regional  Director was asked to  report or comment on  nearly all the topics  brought up for discussion: the December  meeting with Vander  Zalm on restructuring,  assessments and taxation, plans for highways  on the Sunshine Coast,  current concerns of ihe  Regional Board, and the  progress of the new joint  facility.  Harry said the meeting  with Minister of  Municipal Affair Bill  Vander Zalm on restructuring of local government was pretty well  covered in the  newspapers at the time.  He said the five or six  options were outlined  but Vander Zalm slated  plainly there would be no  pressure to change from  the present setup.  Vander Zalm did say,  we  gar-  fire  however, that there  would be difficulties  with expansion in the  future. The Province  would restrict grants for  such things as sewage  and water supply. Harry  pointed out to the  Association that  already had water,  bage pickup, and  protection so we  wouldn't need grants  unless we wanted  something else. The loss  of grants wouldn't matter except to new  developments and the  Provincial Government  is already restricting new  subdivisions to ease the  burden on the existing  taxpayers.  Harry said there is indirect pressure to go to  one district municipality.  The Minister had said  we'd better do something  because services are going to cost more no matter what and if we  amalgamated it would  spread out the cost of  services and save money  by more efficient government administration.

Facts and  figures can be interpreted to give the  answers they want.  Harry admitted this  was a danger but said the  Regional Board would  be looking over the information very carefully  and if they don't like the  setup they can refuse to  hold the referendum. He  said the Ministry had  promised that it would  be an open referendum  of the whole Sunshine  Coast where whatever  the majority of the Coast  population votes for  rules and nobody can opt  out.  Ken Dalgleish made a  motion that the Community Association state  that it supports the existing Regional Board  system and opposes any  moves toward the concept of one large district  municipality. The motion was passed although  most of the members  present abstained,  perhaps feeling it was  too early to make such a  judgement.  Cathy Mellis then  presented a petition addressed to the Ministry  of Transport and  Highways protesting extensions of Mission  Road in Davis Bay and  Largo Road through  Cliff Gilker Park as connector roads to an upper  highway. There's been  an ongoing battle with  the Department of  Highways over their grid  system for the Sunshine  Coast. The Department  refuses to be swayed by  citizen protest and won't  even come to a public  meeting to discuss or explain their decisions.  Harry said all communities of the Sunshine  Coast should band  together to protest the  Department of  Highways' overriding  their wishes. He suggested an open meeting  with residents of Davis  Bay and Browning Road  who are also protesting  the developments in their  areas.  In other business at  the meeting, the question  of how the Association  should honour Bill Grose  was assigned to a committee. A bursary for an  Elphinstone grad who  lives in Roberts Creek  seemed the most likely  choice.  Hall manager Sue  Shepherd reported that  the old oil furnace had  given out and was going  to be replaced with two  new electric ones at a  cost of about $5500  which would be met  through a grant from  B.C.

The business of the  day continued with annual reports read by  department heads. It appears to have been a very  successful year with all  members contributing  many valuable hours in  volunteer work.

More Booboos  There are few corrections from last week's  paper...but they're not  all my booboos.  First, the Hospital  Auxiliary's item about  the Blood Donor Clinics  should have said one  would be held at the  Sechelt Legion on  February 15, not  February 16. The one at  Gibsons is at  Elphinstone School on  February 18 and time for  both is 3 to 8 p.m.  Second, in the list of  new Legion executive officers, it should have  been Cliff Beeman, not  Barnes. Sorry Cliff.  And the Parents' Auxiliary meeting has been  changed to February 4th  at 7:30 p.m. in the  School library. Peter  Cawsey will be speaking  on the S.T.E.P. program  so it should be a worthwhile evening.  And there's a school-  wide skate-a-thon coming up to raise money for  travelling expenses so be  warned. If you get hit up  to sponsor someone  make sure you've got an  "ankler" and not an  NHL hopeful.  Crib Winners .

Considering the results, in all its  aspects, my point of view has been that it was an effective, economical solution. Much has been written for the varying points of view, but when a tough decision has to be made, full well knowing that it  will cause a furore, it takes courage to do so. I am disgusted with the many of those in the media who  used this as a ntijana to whip up dlvjslon and confusion In th. minds of th. public for their own profit.  :��� Thanks should^ lo those with greater wisdom who crossed political paths, such as Alex McDonald,  NDP, former Attorney-General, who said he would have done the same under the circumstances, and  that tough old politician of Vancouver council, Mr. Harry Rankin, who also supported Attorney-  General Williams' actions.  And finally, I thought John Burnside's editorial last week on the subject expressed it all very lucidly,  and correctly from my point of view.  To pillory continuously our political leaders, never giving credit when credit is due. seems to be the  sole purpose of most of the media. It seems to be a Canadian pastime. How can we expect anyone  worth their salt to step forward and offer themselves in the service of the public, when whoever is in  power seems to deserve nothing but harrassment from the media. Can they not be more constructive?  From polities lo the Sale ol meat...  Meat Sale  In this week's ad you will see our butcher is making a special offering of 'Racks of Beef at $1.58 per  pound. This is a very good buy. My private information is that the price of beef will, in all likelihood,  start to rise next week. I am not encouraging our customers to speculate as to what the prices will be in  the forthcoming months. As everyone knows beef has come down a long way since the ranch herds  came on the market last fall. We have bean given to understand the prices have now "bottomed out".  I had a good look at our meat counter today, and if I have to say so myself, I will. The selection is  great, and of course, the quality has always been good because we buy only the best, and our men  know what to do with it when they cut it.  Fresh lamb and veal are most always on hand, as well as a good variety of poultry. Ask for our own  "home-made' beef sausage if you want a good treat and a change.

Coast News, January 25,1962  The Kid From  Hell's Kitchen  Jimmy had high hopes  for his nexl film City For  Conquest and it remains  one of his best roles.  This lime, ihe toughness  is leavened with considerable poignancy.  Ably backed by a fine  casl including Ann  Sheridan and Arthur  Kennedy, he plays a boxer who fights his way up  from ihe guller, only lo  be blinded in Ihe ring by  a treacherous opponent,  li is an excellent film.  Conquest was followed by a stylish period  comedy The Strawberry  Blonde, set in I9IU New  York. Il co-siarrcd  Olivia Dc Haviland and  Rila Hayworth (borrowed from Columbia Pictures) in ihe title role.  Cagney (playing a cocky  dcniisi called Biff  Grimes), gels lo romance  both ladies during Ihe  course of ihe picture.  The same story had been  I*  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  TetaeoenmueiecjeJemi CormntMtort  Carta* ekl.eM  notice: decision  Jecision CRTC 82-39.  Kilkatla Developments Ltd..  Kilkalla, B.C. (811755800):  following a public hearing in  Vancouver on 22 October.  1981, Ihe CRTC announces  lhal it approves the application by Kilkalla  Developments Limited for a  licence to carry on a broadcasting receiving undertaking to serve Kitkatla by  distributing the signals of  the Canadian Satellite Communications Inc. (CANCOMI  network and other broadcasting services. The Commission will issue a licence  expiring 30 September,  1985. subject to conditions  to be specified In it. The  boundaries olthe service  area will also be specified In  the licence.  Canada  filmed in 1933 wilh a  miscast Gary Cooper.  Cagney was much better-  suiled to the role and  performs vigorously.  Cagney's next twb  films were rather undistinguished. The Bride  Came C.O.D., a contemporary comedy with  Belie Davis, is a slighl  film, unworthy of its  talented stars. Captains  of the Clouds is a World  War Two propaganda  piece and Cagney's first  film in technicolor. He  plays a bush pilot who  joins the Royal Canadian Air Force. Cagney  does what he can with  the thin role but the real  star of the picture is the  excellent aerial  photography. A unique  feature of the cast is ihe  addition of real life  World War One air ace,  Billy Bishop, who plays  himself.  Cagney had almost  reached the end of his  contractual period wilh  Warner Brothers. He  was destined lo climax  this fruitful period of his  career with one of his  greatest roles. James  Cagney was literally  born lo play the Irish  song and dance man,  George M. Cohan.  Cohan himself (when he  finally allowed Warners  lo film his life slory)  specifically requested  thai Cagney be given the  pan. The resultant pic  ture Yankee Doodle  Dandy, was a rousing  success on all counts.  Calling on all his skills,  Cagney threw everything  he had into the role. In  the song and dance sequences, he virtually  became Cohan.  Warners, in Iheir turn,  did not stint on the production. Their efforts  paid off. The film  garnered three Academy  Awards, including  Cagney for Best Actor.  Oddly enough, the picture was not made in colour but litis does little to  detract from its power. Il  remains a classic of  Americana.  Following his departure from Warners,  Cagney formed his own  production company  with his brother,  William. Their first film  was an odd and slow-  paced period piece called  Johnny Come Lately.  Cagney plays a washed-  up newspaperman called  Tom Richards who  jumps off a freight train  in a small Midwestern  town and helps a lady  editor (played by revered  stage actress Grace  George in her only film  role) expose graft al a  local orphanage. Cagney  gives the part his best  shot but the net result is  pretty lepid stuff.  The brothers fared  much better wilh their  second production Blood  On The Sun, which  found Cagney back in a  solid action role. Set in  pre World War Two  Japan, it concerns an  American editor who uncovers a pre-Pearl Harbour plot for world conquest. Cagney learned  judo for this one and the  pace is fast and furious.  Next, he freelanced at  20th Century Fox in a  tense, semi-documentary  spy picture called 13 Rue  Madeleine. Cagney plays  Bob Sharkey, the leader  of an espionage team  thai parachutes into occupied France. The film  crackles wilh authenticity and suspense is  heightened by the fact  thai one of ihe learn is a  double agent.  The Cagneys took a  definite gamble wilh  their next independent  effort. They undertook  to film William  Saroyan's poetic fantasy  The Time Of Your Life.  Like Eugene O'NeiPs  The Iceman Cometh  (which it superficially  resembles) Saroyan's  play revolves entirely  around a group of  characters in a bar. Long  on dialogue and short on  action, the film could  have been a boring fiasco  in the wrong hands. But  Cagney (backed by a  crack, hand-picked casl  including Broderick  Crawford, William Ben-  dix and Ward Bond)  brought the characters lo  life and made il all work.  Saroyan himself was  delighted wilh the production and gave il his  unqualified blessing.  to be continued  ���            '  GlbRonR Public  library  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday  2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.

Jan. 29th & 30th  Members &  Guests Welcome  V  #109 Coast News, January 25,1982  On divorce  by Bob Hunter  Divorce.  The word is always uttered in a whisper, as  though it was a loathsome thing.  It has the ring of failure, defeat, ruin. It's like  being hit by a curse. It is  to be avoided at all costs.  When the statistics arc  trotted out, divorce is  always listed as a minus,  while marriage gets a  plus sign.  To have been divorced  is somehow nol quite as  heroic as still being married. Or at least, that's  the general attitude.  Yet the truth is that  divorce was the greatest  invention since marriage.  I'd hate to live in a world  without it.  And I think anyone  who is objective will  agree that most of the  real tragedies are the  marriages that go on that  shouldn't.  Frankly, I don'l see  many marriages that  look like totally groovy  relationships. In most  cases, husband and wife  are locked into a series of  Byzantine ego-struggles  with each other in which  unresolved neurotic  hangups are worked out,  invariably at the expense  of  rational   behaviour.  You know what I mean?  To understand  divorce, we have to have  at least a clue about the  nature of marriage. Of  course it has been  romanticized in  mainstream Western  culture in the last couple  of centuries.  But basically it has  always been a form of  bondage, of slavery - or  hierarchical paternalism,  to coin a phrase.  I'm a bit of an expert  on divorce. My mother  and father got divorced  when I was a kid. I got  divorced myself after  Iwelve years of marriage.  My brother's marriage  lasted roughly the same  amount of time before  grinding to a fairly horrifying end.  I've seen���and felt���  the effects il has on the  adults involved, the inlaws, the parents, the  grandparents, and,  above all, upon the  children. And that's not  counting the suffering of  the pets involved.  Or, for that matter,  the loss experienced by  couples you knew who,  now that you're on your  own or with someone  new, it just doesn't work  with any longer.  I've often tried lo  figure out whether the  fact that my parents got  divorced had anything to  do with the fact that 1  wound up getting divorced myself.  Probably it did, but  you could go nuts trying  to Figure out every little  twist and warp in your  mind. Maybe this means  my own kids are doomed  to go through divorces,  too. Some sort of social  pattern.  Even if that were the  case, I'd have to say:  Terrific.  1 think that in almost  100 per cent of the cases  where people get divorced, they wind up happier  for it in the long run.  And I mean all of them.  The couple. The kids.  The grandparents.  Although maybe not  the in-laws. There is a  tendency for the in-laws  to get lost in these shuffles. But so be it.  Just as marriage has  been hopelessly romanticized, the drama of  divorce has been hyped  as the end of the world.  It isn't. For most, it's  like an escape from a  loony bin, even if half  the lunacy was their  own.  Don't    knock    it.  Divorce    is    great.  Generally, I recommend  it.  At least once.

RDP  Boohstore  886-7744  mimmilliMMiMm  Double, bill at Creek Hall  by Ken Dalgleish  An interesting double  bill is being featured in  Roberts Creek Hall  Saturday, January 30th,  with two exceptional,  bands playing music  from totally different  eras and geographies.  The Kal Kickers play  30's and 40's swing and  Swamp Grass is a fool  slompin' bluegrass band.  Both these styles lake a  high degree of masiery  of the idiom and are a  product of a long  itcritage of musical ideas  passing down through  general ions of musicians.  I have to adntii my  partiality for these more  esoteric forms of music.  I gave up on A.M. radio  years ago and suppose  thai, being a musician, I  look for a high degree of  artistic and technical  skill in a band and don'l  give a whit aboul hearing  the lop 40 replayed.  I  also have lo admit par-  lialily here...I am the  piano player for the Kal  Kickers.  For those who can  venture into the complexities of rhythm  without the ofiimes  cumbersome guide of a  heavy on Ihe beal bass  drum, ihe music is  delightful. The guitar  soloists arc exceptional.  Django Kienhardl, ihe  legendary guitarisl who  first formed this type of  group (wilh Slephan  Grapelli on violin) is one  of (he greatest Soloists in  history, and his slyle of  lasl and harmonically  winy playing is carried  on by ihe Kai Kickers in  line slyle.  Michael Dunn, a  Coasl residenl for many  years, is ihe Inspiration  behind this band and his  coming irip lo Europe  threatens to make this  Roberts Creek engage-  mem the Kai Kicker's  lasi performance,  Swamp Grass played  for Sea Cavalcade on ihe  wharf and I heard them  briefly complete a sound  check. I remember standing in awe as the fastest  mandolin player I've  heard ripped off a lew  licks. They are, from all  reports, ihe besi  bluegrass on ihe wesl  coasl. For everyone into  good music, Ihe old hall  is definitely ihe place on  January 30lh.  SEMI-ANNUAL   SALE  CONTINUES  20% OFF ALL BOOKS  ��tl*tf ***   >^*   m.

According lo Toronto  columnists the Journal  has already cost some  seven million dollars,  fancy new sets, redesigned studios (Nash is  reported as saying its the  first time he's had a real  wood desk on which to  rest his notes) and all  that electronic gimmickry, and who knows  what its annual budget  will run to with two hosts  (who waste too much  time introducing each  other), twenty or so  reporters, ten camera  crews around the world,  live satellite feeds etc.  Both the Watson Report  and the Ombudsman  have been axed to divert  iheir budgets to the Journal.  Quite apart from the  format of the news  package which I find  pretentious and nonproductive, fanfares,  visuals, a set or  background which  distracts the viewers attention, and unnecessary  interruptions to promote  what is still to come, as  though we are donkeys  who have to be encouraged with a carrot  on a stick, is the National any better than  before? I've watched it  now for a couple of  weeks and I can't frankly  say I notice any great improvement. The focus is  still on crime, disaster  ,- and stories which come..  with good picture poten- ,  tial,   admittedly   the1  shortcomings of all TV  news, but what did it  cost I wander to fly in a  crew to J* Bugaboos in  the KofJknays because  two toufMe had died in  an avalanche? Nice trip,  nice pictures, but surely  there were more important  issues  in  western  Canada?  In   moving  the   Na  tional to 10 o'clock (he  CBC still hasn't made  any attempt to address  the much more basic  problem for westerners,  that we're still getting a  news broadcast which is  four hours old. My complaint about the National  has always been that it's  little more than radio's  "The World at Six" with  pictures. That complaint  is now more, not less  correct. The National is  packaged and on air at 9  p.m. EST, the time we're  watching the 6 o'clock  news.  I understand the  CBC's concern that if it  doesn't wake-up the  competition from Pay-  TV and satellite programming will make  them redundant, but I  can't see that the present  changes will do anything  to make CBC more relevant to Canadians.  I suppose if the CBC's  centre of power had been  vested anywhere except  in Toronto and Ottawa,  they might have had a  better understanding of  the country as a whole  and the realities of the  geography of this country would have been addressed long ago. The  world, after all doesn't  grind to a halt just  because it's bedtime in  Toronto.  Am 1 not right in  thinking that one of the  most important issues in  Canada today is the lack  of understanding exhibited by Ottawa civil  servants and the Feds on  the one hand and the  Toronto based media on  the other, of the feelings,  aspirations and needs of  the rest of the country,  be it the Maritimes, the  Prairies, the North or  B.C.?  If   the   CBC   really  wants to make itself relevant to Canadians and  give a much needed service both to the diverse  regions of this country  and to those in Ottawa,  whose job it is to govern,  then why don't they  devote at least 75% of  Ihe Journal to discussion  on Canadian issues with  knowledgeable and sensitive spokesmen for all  parts of the country. Use  the electronic technology  to bring us together, but  discussions please, not  just a bunch of clowns  yelling at each other.  Surely the CBC can do,  better than these  shouting matches between the proponents of  differing points of view  to which we've been subjected. So far I haven't  gained anything except  anger and frustration at  the inept handling of so-  called dialogue. "Thank  you very much for talking lo us" Barbara  gushes, but no one was  talking to us, only at  each other. Inexcusable.  Of course the rest of  the world impinges on us  too, politically,  economically, environmentally and  culturally and it's nol  unlikely that different  parts of this country  have differing views  about foreign policy,  embargo on wheat to  Russia, sale of Candu  reactors, Ashing regulations, for example. Why  not let Ottawa hear those  opinions too?  The CBC always  makes the excuse that it  doesn't have enough  money to compete with  the Americans. Obviously money isn't  everything, maybe it  depends more upon how  you visualize your audience.

There were no injuries.  On Ihe 17th: A Porl  Mellon residence was  broken into and approximately $200 in cash was  stolen.  A molor vehicle accident on North Road, involving a single car,  caused minor injuries.  On Ihe 19th: A truck  stolen from the Sunshine  Coasl Trailer Park was  recovered on Ihe 21 si  abandoned in Gibsons.  On Ihe 20lh: A battery  was stolen from a vehicle  parked on Point Road.  On the 15th: Two cords  of wood were stolen  from Ihe yard of a summer   home   in   West  Extensive damage was  done lo a vehicle belonging to a Pender Harbour  resident. The vehicle was  vandalized while parked  in front of the Pender  Harbour Hotel. There  are no suspects.

On Ihe Iftlh: The driver  of a grey Trans-Am Pon-  liac miraculously  escaped injury when his  car Hipped on the road  and was totally  demolished. The acci-  denl occurred in ihe early morning hours on  Highway 101 near  Madeira Park Road.  Police are still investigating whal appears  to be a case of careless  driving.  On Ihe 18th: Police are  still investigating  suspects in the break-in  of a residence on  ihe  Committee. The committee is a group of  citizen volunteers who  prepared the plan two  years ago. Information  compiled recently in a  data base siudy by  Buchan will be added 10  Ihe Community Plan and  il is hoped a firsi draft  will be ready lo accompany a re-application by  Gibsons 10 ihe Agricultural Land Commission  (ALC) in early February.

The data gathered by  Buchan during the lasl  six months provides  detailed information on  commercial activity,  recreation and industrial  development now taking  place in ihe village. The  research was done by  University sludenl Colleen McGrath who worked as an assistant on the  study.  Because 1981 census  figures are not available,  Buchan used the population estimate of 2,599  suggested by the Urban  Transil Authority study.  He figured Gibsons has a  trading area of 8,300  counting residents from  Roberts Creek lo Porl  Mellon. He discovered  Gibsons has a higher  percentage of commercial space per capita than  other small communities  of comparable size and  found this surprising,  because of Gibsons close  proximity lo Vancouver  for shopping.  Gibsons has 5.5 acres  of commercially zoned  land in lower Gibsons  and 30.5 acres in upper  Gibsons oul of a lotal of  762 acres. A total floor  area of 215,675 sq. ft. of  commercial floor space  works out lo 14.2 sq. ft.  per capita, somewhat  higher than the 13 sq. ft.  lhal is recommended for  communities of 8,000 or  more.  Buchan found lhal  Gibsons has a lower middle income population  and a higher low income  and high income population compared lo ihe rest  of B.C. The retired  population of residents  over 55 years of age is  27%, compared 10 17%  in B.C. generally. This  creates a larger demand  for medical services,  health care facilities and  public transportation.  The labour force is  smaller than ihe B.C.  average reflecting lite  retired population and  scarcity of employment  opportuniiies for  women. The labour  force is related lo highly  seasonal work due lo  Gibsons' dependence on  tourism, fishing and ihe  large presence of semi-  retired people.  Commercial activity in  Gibsons employs 665  people, counting two  part lime employees as  one. There are 813 single  family residences in Gibsons, 98 apartments and  43 townhouses. Aboul  80% of ihe residential  lots and 80% of commercial lots in ihe village  are developed. Gibsons  has 48.8 acres of park  space and 16.8 acres of  zoned industrial land  wilh 45,936 sq. ft, of Industrial floor space and  75 people employed at  the Industrial Park site.  Gibsons has 17 miles  of waiermains, 78 fire  hydrants, 11.4 miles of  sanitary sewer lines, 280  manholes, 2.7 miles of  storm sewers and 12  miles of roads.  The data base study  contains detailed  breakdowns of types of  businesses and exaci  square feel of different  types of commercial,  residential and industrial  space. A copy of the  study can be bought and  will be available at the  Municipal Hall as soon  as addilional printings  are made.

The  Provincial government  currently finances public  school education approximately 55.5%. An  increase to 75% would  cost the taxpayers an additional $316 million  (1981), which could be  raised by increasing the  sales tax from 6 to 7.5%,  or personal income lax  rate from 44% to 53%.  In 1980, actual school  taxes in School District  #46, Sunshine Coast  were: Average assessed  value of properties:  $6,723. The provincially  set mill rate was 41.25  ($277). Taxes toward  other expenses were $58,  making a total of $335  school lax. The  Homeowner's Grant was  $380, leaving a surplus  of $45 from the province  which went to reduce  general and other taxes  on the tax notice.  Many recommendations were received by  the Ministry, and each  was carefully considered  and projected. One  popular notion was that  the Province should  assume 50% of the Basic  Education costs. For the  Sunshine Coast, 1981  taxes would have been,  on average assessed  value of $6,885: Tax at  33.4 mills, $230; Tax  toward other expenses,  $93; Total Gross School  Tax, $323. When the  Homeowners Grant was  applied, ($380), the taxpayer would have had  $57 applied to reduce  general and other taxes,  a plus of $11.30 over the  present plan.  On the 75/25 split, at a  mill rate of 16.7 on the  $6,885 property, the lax,  $115; other school expenses, $93; making a  total of $208, giving a  surplus to apply to other  parts of the tax bill of  $126.30 when the  Homeowners' Grant is  applied. However,  remember that this formula might be offset by  much higher income and  sales taxes to fund the  province's 75% contribution.  Some recommendations wanted an increase  in the Homeowners'  Grants. Grants of $380,  $430, and $480 were extended on tables for all  districts, affecting our  average property owner  less than $100 on his  taxes.  Another suggestion  would have retained the  $380 Homeowners'  Grant and added $100 to  be applied to school  taxes only, if needed.  Since the Sunshine  Coaster in our average  $6,885 home did not pay  1981 school tax, this  bonus would not apply  here; the $380 grant  would still leave us with  a $45.30 surplus to apply  to other areas on our tax  notice.  A suggestion was  made that the $380 apply  lo school taxes only  (which was the original  intent of the Homeowners' Grant). The impact  of this suggestion on our  average Sunshine Coast  taxpayer would be to  reduce the $45.30 to  zero, so he would lose  out on that one.  A phase-in approach  to Ihe actual and assessed value of property  would have given our  average taxpayer's properly a value of $6,310.  Tax at 43.8; $276; other  expenses tax, $88; Total  Gross tax, $364. This  would give him only $16  toward other items on  the tax notice, a decrease  of $29.10, in the benefit  he formerly received  from the Homeowners'  Grant.  On a single family property phase-in of actual  value on a residential  assessment of 13.5%, the  average assessed value  on the Sunshine Coast  would be $7,746, Tax at  40.05 mills, $310; taxes  toward other expenses,  $57; Gross Total Tax,  $407; which would be  reduced by the  Homeowners' Grant of  $380 to $27, which our  homeowner would have  to pay, an increase in  New School Taxes over  1980 figures of $71.90.  A very complex suggestion embodying constant rate of increase of  assessed value would  raise Sunshine Coast  average assessed value to  $7,559, giving our taxpayer a school tax bill of  $412, less $380, or $32,  once again an increase  over 1980 of $77.20.  Should "standard accommodation" be the  criteria, rather than  average of assessed  value, a 1981 average actual value on the Sunshine Coasl was  calculated to be $49,860.  On an assessment ratio  of 14.7, the 1981 average  assessed value would  have been $9,216. On a  tax of 41.1 mills, the total  school taxes, on this  assessment would have  been $485, $105 after the  Homeowners' Grant, an  increase of $89.10 over  1980.  And so it went. Application of a uniform  regional mill rate would  have increased tax paid  by $45.90. Table 12.2  sets out Variable Basic  Levy by School District,  Sunshine Coast listed ai  55.4 mills. This would  increase the Net Tax of  our property owner by  $54.80.  The Commission came  to the conclusion thai a  renewed effort must be  made to examine the  underlying rationale for  the financing of education. What the taxpayer  must accept, in the view  of this writer, is that  there is to be no free ride  for property owners.

We are offering the closest thing  to eost-free driving.1  ������  Harold A. Poling  Executive Vice-President  North American Automotive Operations  Mmwni Ford Motor Company  "Ford Escort and Mercury Lynx are two of the world's most extraordinary cars. The  evidence is convincing.  Escort, alone, is outselling every import car line in America, based on reported deliveries  through November 1981.  And both Escort and Lynx are retaining the highest percentage of original price of any  compact cars, according to the NADA's most recent Used Car Guide.  An Unprecedented Offer  Now, as proof of our confidence in these world-class cars, Ford is making an unprecedented offer.  From now through March 13,1982, Ford will give every buyer of a new Escort or Lynx the  following two-year, all-encompassing program:  Two Tears of Cost-Free Maintenance  For the first two years or 40,000 km., Ford will pay for all scheduled maintenance. Including tunc-ups. Including oil changes and filters. Including parts. Including labour. At  no cost to you. To reduce the cost of ownership still further, Ford is also giving you:  Two Tears of Workmanship Coverage  Our workmanship coverage includes virtually everything - for two years or 40,000 km.,  whichever comes first.  The only things not covered by this limited warranty are tires, fluids between scheduled  intervals, abuse and accidents.  Everything else is covered. Everything.  A 5% Cash Bonus  As additional help to the buyer, Ford is also offering a cash bonus equal to 5 percent of  the base vehicle sticker price of any 1982 Escort or Lynx.  This can mean as much as 8425 on the Escort GLX wagon and as much as 8455 on the  Lynx LS wagon. This cash bonus comes direct to you from Ford and may be taken us a  cheque, or used as part of the down payment.  In total, this is the best offer on any small cars sold in America. And the closest thing to  cost-free driving." '  1982 Ford Escort  The 5% cash bonus.is limited to one car per customer.

The total destruction and  the tragic loss of life  came as a shock to us all.  Another shock was in  store when, on our arrival in Bournemouth,  Hampshire, we were met  by the officer who, for  the length of time we  stayed in that resort  town gave us our orders  and who more or less  controlled our destinies.  There is an old axiom  that one should not  speak ill of the dead, but  it is my contention that  this is unreasonable inasmuch thai if one cannot find anything good  to say about a person  and wishes to discuss  them, what is left if one  cannot tell the truth? I  have never been a churchgoer and have no intention of ever becoming  one, but I find it not only  despicable but offensive  when reading of the  funeral services and the  eulogizing by a minister  of some character whom  he would have us believe  was deserving of a halo,  when we all knew that  that same characater was  as crooked as a dog's  back leg and we were  vastly relieved to be rid  of him.  Let us face it, Fit. Lt.  B. was a miserable s.o.b.  and a firm believer in  making life unpleasant  for any and all who came  in contact with him.  Nicknamed "The  Weasel", he had been in  the RCAF for a long  time and, in my opinion,  had long forgotten that  he was a Canadian and  had gone completely  RAF. This was probably  a strategic move on his  part, as although we  were recognized as having a separate identity,  we were definitely under  RAF command.  We had been  transported in trucks or,  to use the English term,  "lorries" from Hastings  to Bournemouth and,  after a bouncing trip  over back roads,  possibly to avoid aerial  attack from the ever-  present Luftwaffe, we  were assembled on some  kind of a square to hear  what our superior officer  had to say. It was not only threatening but insulting.  In a whining nasal  tone he had the colossal  nerve to inform us that  we had a great deal to  learn as regards cooking  in large quantities (this  was probably true) and  he expected us to follow  the English way of going  about things. He more or  less   implied   that   we  should learn about  preparing tasty meals  from them and follow  their example. This  amounted to a lot of  balderdash as, had we  followed his precepts, we  would probably have  had a mutiny on our  hands. As "Old John"  Keller, who was a  displaced Irishman and  knew a great deal more, I  am certain, about  English cooking than  Fit. Lt. B., remarked  afterwards "What in the  hell is he talking about?  All you need to know  over here is to scorch the  meat, boil the vegetables  to a mush and drench  everything else in Bird's  Custard!" The latter  product, commonly  known among the boys  as the "Yellow Peril"  appeared to be held in  high regard by our  English contemporaries  and they poured it over  anything faintly resembling a dessert, from rice  to rhubarb.  As a corporal, 1 had  been assigned to the  Metropole Hotel, which  turned out to be a redbrick building of uncer  tain age, on a hill  overlooking the harbour.  I had for my assistants  "Old John", a pair of  young chaps who had  been bakers' apprentices  in civilian life and were  known as the "Gold  Dust Twins" as they  were inseparable both on  and off duty and finally  young Jimmy Kernahan,  who had contributed the  two bottles of rye on tht  troopship coming over  but who had confessed  that his sole experience  of cooking had been one  time when his Mother  was sick in bed with the  'flu and he had warmed  up some already cooked  potatoes'.  The kitchen in the  Metropole, like many  English hotels, was  situated in the basement  and all the food was sent  up to the dining room  above by means of  dumb-waiters. The  facilities for the actual  cooking were not only  meagre but extremely ancient. Huge iron pots or  cauldrons were individually heated by a  weighed about 40 tons  and took up most of the  small coal fire  underneath while the  main stove, also a coal  burner, was a gigantic  affair that must have  already cramped space  left in the kitchen. The  floor was of red brick.  We were supposedly  feeding about 300 men  but, being aircrew, about  a third of them were  either absent on duty or  on leave so we prepared  meals for about 200.  Whether it was due to  the quality of our cooking or simply that they  were not hungry, we  usually had a lot of leftovers, which brings us  around to the disposal of  garbage under wartime  conditions. All waste  food had to be placed in  containers allotted for  that purpose, while empty cans (labels removed)  went into others. All  paper products, including cardboard, had  to be bundled up and  tied with either string or  wire. Even the ashes  from the stove had to be  kept apart (Cod knows  what they did with them,  maybe they were made  into bricks!) The point  was that nothing must be  wasted, it all had to be  conserved to aid the war  effort. This was a lofty  and splendid idea of  course but it was time  consuming and a source  of irritation to us Canadians, who had never  known what it was to  save anything except  possibly money and most  of us were not too good  at that, especially in wartime when many of us  had adopted the "today  we live, tomorrow we  die" philosophy.  Fortunately for us we  had a large number of  the W.A.A.F. (Women's  Auxiliary Air Force) attached to our outfit so  they did most of the garbage sorting. That they  were good at other things  will not be discussed at  this time. We will go into  that in some future column and also introduce  our readers, (assuming  that there are any) to not  only some of the girls but  to a Warrant Officer in  the R.A.F. who went by  the name of "Lord  Swill".

Pollock  By-Law Enforcement Officer   Village of Sechelt  by Jean Lubin  Chairman  Meals on Wheels  Committee  Since March 1981, the  Sunshine Coast Community Services Society  has been providing a  much needed Meals on  Wheels service in the  Gibsons area. About 40  meals a week are cooked  in the Kiwanis In-.  termediate Care Facility  and the message recorder  necessary for clients who  need to phone in their requests for meals or  cancellations; the small  honorarium of $230.00  to the hardworking coordinator, Linda Reeve;  travel costs to pick up  supplies; and the annual  audit and insurance fees.

The clients receiving ihe meals have been  very appreciative, and  we feel this is a worthwhile service which  might well be expanded  in Ihe future.  The clients pay $2.50 a  meal which covers the  cost of the food only; ihe  cooking is done free of  charge, and Ihe delivery  is done by a marvellous  group of willing  volunteers, who donate  their gas expenses as well  as their time. Bui ihe  programme does have  other costs which are met  partly by a small gram of  $2,000 from ihe Ministry  of Health, and otherwise  can only be covered by  donations from ihe community. These costs include the cosl of the  boxes used for delivery,  and the disposable containers for the food; the  costs of the lelephone  for March 1981  -February 1982. But by  the end of next month,  we will need more money  lo continue providing the  service. We are appealing lo members of the  public to help us by a  donation, however  small, lo support this  very worthwhile service.

P. Brooks, Paslor  It is a green tea and has a  very great social importance in the life of the  Japanese people. Both  Chinese and Japanese  teas are like French  wines���volumes can be  written about them and  no one expert is likely to  agree with another about  their finer points. Connoisseurs each have their  own meticulous way of  buying, brewing, and  drinking tea.  These tea experts  would, I am sure, agree  with this statement:  Americans, Canadians  and other English-  speaking people brew tea  too strong. No matter  how great the quality of  the tea, if it is brewed too  strong it will be harsh  and bitter to the taste.  Tea of proper strength  has a pleasant and  natural sweetness. The  western practice of adding sugar and cream is a  definite no-no when  drinking the teas of the  Orient. About one scant  teaspoon of tea leaves  per cup of water is sufficient , this amount can be  reduced if you are brew  ing a large pot of tea. Let  the tea steep at least  three minutes before serving.  Another delightful  drink that I enjoy with  rice and seafoods is the  faintly sweet Japanese  white rice wine called  sake (sakee). It is the  custom in Japan to drink  sake hot. It is served  from a small porcelain  bottle called a "Tok-  kuri" which has been  heated in a kettle of hot  water to about 55 ��C.  The hot sake is then  poured into tiny cups  called a sakazuki from  which it is sipped before  and during the meal.  Sake closely resembles  dry vermouth in flavour  and can also be served  cold in a number of  cocktails because of its  high   alcohol   content.  I use sake a lot in  cooking seafood, for  marinades and sauces  when a little honey is  mixed with it I find it  better and cheaper than  the Chinese cooking  wine in the grocery store.  Sea you.  by J. Wayne Rowe  Third Party Liability  Insurance  With auto insurance  renewal time drawing  near for many drivers, it  is perhaps worthwhile to  pause a moment to consider whether the  amount of third party  liability insurance that  you presently carry is  still adequate.  Third party liability  insurance is, of course,  that insurance which  pays any claims made  against you where you  are found to be the cause  of an accident resulting  in property damage or  personal injury to  another person.  Personal injury  awards made by the  courts have been  escalating rapidly with  several awards exceeding  $500,000 and one recently as high as $1.3 million.  Notwithstanding these  figures, many drivers  persist in carrying the  minimum coverage of  $100,000.  From a purely selfish  point of view, this  doesn't make sense if  you have any assets at all  as you could be virtually  wiped out by a personal  injury claim. Even if you  don't have the assets today, you could still find  yourself having to make  payment in the future  when you were in a better position.  The other side of the  coin is that some drivers  are underinsured, don't  have any assets and probably never will have any  real monetary net worth.  Should your claim be  against someone like this  an award of $1 million  would be small comfort  Sechelt  briefs  "."'Following Mr. Henry  Hall's' presentation of  this "Royal Reach" concept, (see front page  story) the subsequent  business of council at  Wednesday's meeting  seemed quite anti-  climactic.  Arts Centre parking:  Responding to complaints about parked cars  blocking emergency  vehicle access, Mayor  Koch warned drivers attending Arts Centre  functions to park n  designated areas only, or  illegally parked vehicles  would be ticketted. "Fire  vehicles must be able to  negotiate the area" said  Koch. "If people are too  lazy to park and walk,  they'd belter stay  home."  Rezoning By-law:  A by-law to allow the  rezoning of Block 7, the  properly al the western  end ofjrail Bay Mall  between Cowrie and  Teredo, to commercial  use, was discussed and  instructions were given  to draw up the proposed  by-law so lhal public  hearings could be held  and the rezoning process  initiated.  to you as you are  unlikely ever to receive  it.  This is another good  reason for ensuring that  you have adequate third  party liability coverage  because for a small additional premium you can  obtain coverage which  would permit your  award to be satisfied  from your own insurance  up to the amount of your  third party liability  coverage. Thus, if the  other driver is underinsured you won't be left  with a hollow victory.  One other point which  should be made while I  am on the subject of personal injury awards is in  respect of the use of seal  belts. A number of cases  have held that the injured claimant contributed to his own injuries because of his  failure to wear a seat  belt. As a result the final  award has been reduced  by the percentage to  which the court found  that the failure to wear a  seat belt contributed to  the injuries. In one instance at least, this  resulted in a reduction of  the award by an amount  in excess of a quarter of  a million dollars.  Whatever your views  may be on the use of seat  belts, this is certainly a  point worth bearing in  mind the next time you  get into your car.

Trees: There are two  main reasons for winter  pruning. 1. To remove  damaged, diseased or  awkwardly placed branches. 2. To shape the tree  for appearance and ease  in cultivation and  harvesting. The following is an recommended  procedure.  1. Cut out all diseased or  broken, or dead branches.  2. Where branches  parallel each other closely, cut out the less  Vigorous   or   desirable  'one.  3. Remove branches  which project upward or  ^downward   from   main  ���^branches,       leaving  horizontal growth only  as far as is possible.  ���A. Open up the crown to  'light by cutting out excessive growth.  '5.   In  older  trees,  cut  back leader branches to  reduce height and give  ! good lateral conformation.  '. 6. Cul close to trunks,  ; cleanly.  ��� 7.   Where   very   heavy  !,pruning   is   required,  spread it  over two or  three years.  8. Prune annually.  9. Seal large cuts with  . pitch   or   pruning   seal  compound.  10. Fill holes in trunks  . wilh   the   same   compound.  11. Cut off all root  suckers.  Shrubs:  Many shrubs do not  require regular pruning  and should be pruned  only to control size and  lo produce desirable  shape. Some of these are  azaleas, cotoneaster,  jasmine, magnolia, currant and viburnum.  For those shrubs that  produce flowers on new  growth, cut last year's  shoots back to a few inches from main stems.  Examples are hardy  fuschias, hydrangeas,  and some spireas.  For those which  flower on old growth,  cut back after flowering  -fosythia, jasmine and  mock orange.  Plants which produce  suckers, especially lilacs,  should have these trimmed off now.  Neglected shrubs  should be cut back  drastically now. You  may sacrifice one year's  bloom, but eventually  the shrub will be better  for it.  When transplanting  shrubs (later on), since  some roots are last in the  process, cut back your  stems accordingly to  assure balanced rooting  lo supply the nutritional  requirements.  Remember���plants  like people, respond lo  good care in their health,  appearance and productivity, and pruning is an  important facet of this  care.  When God on earth was  making this primal  Paradise  A garden, say the Scrip-  lures, was fashioned to  suffice.  And man these years  remembers, and every  spring recants.

Reports of the inquest  into the death of a man  who was beaten in the  Peninsula Hotel parking  lot, left lying on the  highway and run over by  a driver who wasn't able  to slop in time, appeared  on the front pages of  both local newspapers.  The brutality of the attack, the callousness of  the assailants who left  him on the highway and  ihe indifference of  bystanders who did  nothing are scandalous.  We're often smug and  superior, living here in  our small, semi-rural  communities, where we  know our neighbours  and are ready to lend a  hand if needed. Sure,  people are murdered all  the time in big cities,  their cries for help ignored, but we'd never lei  it happen here. A Kitty  Genovese could be stabbed more than SO times  in a New York doorway,  while dozens of people  pretended not to hear her  anguished pleas for  assistance, but a similar  situation would be unthinkable on the Sunshine Coast. Or would  it?  Crown prosecutor  Tony Rowley rather  understated the case  when he commented  after the inquest that he  "didn't think much of  the people of this community if they would  leave an injured person  lying on the highway."  Why didn't anyone  help the beaten man and  prevent him from being  run over and killed?  Fear of being involved, drunkenness, the  hope that someone else  would do something, indifference, indecision,  ignorance���these are  some of the possible  reasons, but they're nol  valid excuses.  Certainly the man's attackers couldn't be relied  upon for assistance and  the hotel patrons who  were drunk weren't  thinking too clearly, but  what about the  bystanders who had their  wits about them?  No one helped, so Bernard Jesso lay on the  highway after midnight  until he was run over by  an off-duty ambulance  driver whose vision was  hampered by the lights  of a stationary car and  who was unable to stop  in time. Ironically, this  driver was the one person who hurried to give  assistance, but in vain.  One fact becomes obvious from the inquest  into this tragedy: alcohol  abuse played a major  role in the man's death.  Testimony revealed thai  the deceased had been intoxicated on the night of  his death, as had many  of the participants in the  series of fights lhat  preceded it. Without excessive drinking, it's  unlikely thai the  disputes, the beating and  the death would have occurred.  How many more  senseless tragedies will il  take for people to realize  that the road to ruin is  paved with alcohol.  The Jesso incident  reminded me of a story I  covered while editing the  weekly newspaper in  Hope. There had been a  party, a group of young  people drinking and having a good time. Then  the violence began. In a  scuffle, a young man  who cleared tables at the  bus depot cafeteria was  knocked to the floor,  banging his head heavily.  Unconscious,   he   was  dumped on to the lawn  of a home to sleep off  the effects of the drinks  and the bump on his  head. Before the sun rose  on that winter morning,  he was dead. The high  school kids who put him  there, not maliciously  but carelessly, were not  charged in his death, but  they'll often be haunted  by the memory of that  night.  Participants in the  brawl outside the Pen  Hotel last October and  other bystanders who did  nothing to get medical  help for a badly injured  man will always be  ashamed when they  recall the scene, but will  their shame prevent a  similar episode from occurring?
