The fate of the future marina in Gibsons remains a  question mark and dredging the bay to accommodaie  the marina may not be completed without the  eo-operation of the federal government.  Gibsons village administrator Jack Copland told  the Coast News that replacement of the former  wooden breakwater with a rock mound breakwater is  the first phase of a project by the Federal Department of Public Works.  The second phase is to build a second rock mound  breakwater across the bay area and dredging the  infud-flats to build a marine basin for boat moorage.  -Copland stated that the recent provincial government freeze on spending has made it impossible to  finalize the initial agreement between the village and  the federal government made in July, 1981.  Gibsons had been counting on receiving matching  Must conform to guidelines  Hotel design queried  funding from the province to pay its share of the $2.8  million project, but provincial funds have been  withheld.  A new approach laken by the village has been to  entice private developers to build the marina and to  attempt lo sign a new agreement with Ihe Department  of Public Works which would include a new cost-  sharing agreement lo build ihe second breakwater  and complete all the dredging. On the advice of the  village's solicitors, a rezoning of Ihe bay area proper-  lies from CDA lo C-M2 to allow commercial, light  industrial and multi-family use is quickly being  prepared for public hearing Monday, April 26.  ll is possible if private money is available to help  with marina costs, the federal government will complete the dredging by June, since Ihey are already on  site.  Copland suggested some interest has been expressed by private developers in the marina project, but  did not elaborate further.  by John Burnside  The stunning success of the peace march held in  ' Vancouver last Saturday came as a surprise to al!  ' concerned.  It came as a surprise to the organizers of the  march. Chairman Frank Kennedy admitted to the  : throng of at least 30,000 gathered at Sunset Beach  ; that only 5,000 copies of the rally program had been  'printed. '  It came as a surprise for those participants who  Sthered early at the rallying. point at Kitsilano  ach. As noon, the designated hour appronched,  there seemed only hundreds gathered to participate.  "They'll all come at the last minute," said one  young fellow hopefully. And come they did.  When those same participants were completing  their march from Kitsilano Beach across the Burrard  Street bridge, along Burrard to Georgia, and back  along Howe and under the bridge to Sunset Beach,  they were amazed and delighted to And that the tail  end of the march was still crossing the bridge above  their heads.  The wide variety of participants was a surprise in  itself. There were church groups represented from  the Mennonites, to the United Church, to the Roman  Catholics; there were trade union groups and  teachers' groups; there were grannies and punk  rockers, old men and young girls, entire families  complete with their children and the dog.  Three generations of one local family took part in  the walk for peace.  It was a good-humoured throng. Participants  marched quietly along bearing their banners occasionally singing the songs that have been the anthems  of the peace movement for two decades: "All we are  saying is give Peace a chance"; "Blowing in the  Wind"; "We shall overcome".  The banners were as widely varied as the people  carrying them: "Hell, no, we won't jglovv"; "I'd  rather be active than radioactive"; "Let us grow up,  not blow up" said the banner carried by a little girl.  Another banner said: "Let the military have a march  of dimes'  I A proposed 30-room, three-storey hotel in lower  'Gibsons is having birth pains, while Gibsons council  makes further recommendations to builder George  Giannakos to have the new facility conform to Gibsons Downtown Revitalizalion guidelines.  * "We are very much in favour of your proposal lo  build a hotel in Gibsons. Our village needs such ac-  commodationn but we want to ensure that the hotel  will fit into the new revitalizalion theme for the lower  village," said Mayor Lorraine Goddard.  jj Gibsons planning committee told Giannakos Monday to re-submit his architectural plans to conform to  the lower village design theme approved by council in  February.  Giannakos, who has been planning a hotel and  commercial project on his property adjacent to the  Omega Restaurant since 1980, applied to council for  re-zoning to change the site from C-4 (commercial,  one-storey) to C-2 (multi-storey hotel).  Planner Rob Buchan told Giannakos that accep-  Aton*the way the march met almost unfailittfrtfp-^B'e ***& dtawings^ould have to be prepared for  port: elderly ladies flashed peace signs from the windows of buses stalled in the inevitable traffic jams;  bus drivers stuck their heads out of windows and said  hello to friends among the marchers; motorists  waiting for the march to wind past gave two toots for  peace and smiled and waved; patients and nurses  waved and gave the peace sign from St. Paul's  Hospital.  In the rally at Sunset Beach the 30,000 settled back  in the sunshine and heard speeches of fiery encouragement and determination, again from a wide  cross-section of speakers.  They were entertained by a Japanese drum ensemble; by a Children's Choir which sang songs of peace  with a beguiling sweetness; and by the talented and  indefatigable String Band.  It may have been the largest rally ever held in Vancouver. It certainly and most fittingly was the most  peaceful.  the public hearing to be held in connection with the  re-zoning application.  "In that way, we have a better idea of what we are  approving and people attending the public hearing  know what they will be faced with," said Buchan.  One criticism by council was thai convention and  banquet facilities are not included in the hotel project. Council felt that the more complete Ihe services  offered by a Gibsons hotel, the better.  Gibsons Harbour Business Association (GHBA)  and Architectural Services presented their comments  on the hotel project to Gibsons planning committee.  Pedestrian access to the water from Gower Point  Road via a 20 foot walkway between the existing  commercial spaces recently built by Giannakos above  Elphie's Cabaret and Ihe new hotel is considered a  high priority by GHBA.  "We definitely would like to see a pedestrian link  to the water from Gower Point Road. Also, the  visual link to the harbour is very important and we  would hate to see a solid wall of buildings blocking  off all the view" said GHBA chairman, Gary  Puckett.  A glass domed, 7,300 sq. ft. restaurant on the roof  of the 32,000 sq. fl. hotel is nol acceptable to GHBA.  II is felt the reflective glass would interfere with the  view and does not conform to the lower village  revitalizalion theme.  Because sufficient parking spaces will not be  available for the hotel project, it was suggested that  Giannakos could contribute $1,500 per parking space  towards a parking building to be built in the vicinity  of the hotel, lo conform to the parking requirements  for the project.  The Planning Committee recommended that Giannakos meet with his architect, Eric Veistrup of Duncan, GHBA, and Architectural Services, lo discuss a  hotel design that would satisfy Ihe Revitalizalion  guidelines.  > ���������eaa��� n I ^  ON THE INSIDE...

Boat sinks  Gibsons RCMP continue their investigation into a bizarre boating incident when an overturned 26' cruiser with six bullet-holes in the hull  was found in Howe Sound early Sunday morning.  The boat "Itchytail", registered in N. Vancouver was found drifting about 1 and 1/3  miles east of Grace Island, off Gambier Island  at 6 a.m. on April 25th.  RCMP reported that Rescue Co-ordination  Centre (RCC) and RCMP divers searched  underwater and the surrounding area for four  hours but could find no further evidence in the  incident.  In other police news this weekend, the RCC  hovercraft was called in Sunday at 1 a.m. to  take an injured person to Lions Gate Hospital  following "a disturbance involving six or seven  people at Plumper's Cove".  School Board seeks cuts  Budget battle goes on  by Maryanne West  "It seems to me that a concerted effort should be  made to reduce the school's energy bills which totalled $245,390 last year," said Trustee Stephen, who  with the rest of the school board spent last Tuesday  evening wrestling with the problems of how $242,932  can be trimmed from the budget with the least impact  on the classroom. This is the amount the provincial  government requires to be cut from the shareable  part of the budget, Sections A-F inclusive.  There is fat which can be trimmed because for  some years now our affluent society has tried to pro-  Vander Zalm  leans on SCRD  The Sunshine Coast Regional District received a  letter from Municipal Affairs Minister Bill Vander  Zalm last week expressing his concern over "the  number of Loan Authorization By-laws which have  passed through my office..."  In the letter Vander Zalm told the regional board:  "I would certainly not hesitate to approve your bylaw, except that it has been brought to my attention a  number of times now that a portion of your indebtedness is for outstanding debentures on the  Sechelt sewer system. These outstanding debentures  could be assumed by Sechelt in return for their taking  over the sewer system from the Regional District."  . What Mr. Vander Zalm is, in effect, telling the  SCRD is that his office will not approve the board's  loan authorization by-laws for such things as water  line extensions, unless the board turns over the  Sechelt sewage treatment facility to the Village of  Sechelt.  The board voted to table the letter until such time  as it can arrange a meeting with the minister.  vide as comprehensive and varied an education as  possible, and budgets have been prepared with a view  to what is desirable, over and above the absolute  necessities. Now that has to change and economies  will have to be practised in every department.  Secretary Treasurer Mills outlined the areas in each  section in which cuts can be made, cuts which it is  estimated will yield half the required amount. The  other half will have to come from programming and  the superintendent was asked to prepare a division of  priorities, the essential basics of education which  must be maintained and the extra enrichment and  desirable programmes which we have been able lo afford for our children.  If parents want to continue to afford these pro*  grammes the whole school community, students,  parents, staff (teachers, administration, janitorial  and maintenance) and to some extent the community  at large will have to co-operate to keep down costs  and to figure out ways and means to achieve that  end.  For example, the school bus-system will have to be  cut back to those children who are eligible to ride the  buses under the School Act. Can parents get together  to form car pools to drive children who may now  have to walk along dangerous sections of highway?  Can parent's auxiliaries raise money to reduce the  budget for interschool athletic competition, and/or  provide car pools for transportation? Last year it  cost over $50,000 to bus children on school sponsored activities, $19,300 for inter-school track meets.  There is not yet a breakdown of the cost of  breakages and deliberate damage to school property  but other districts have been successful in reducing  this cost by giving the money saved to the students  for school projects.  Twenty five to 30 people, parents and teachers attended the meeting, and much anger was directed at  the provincial government, not so much at the need  for restraint, we all know times are difficult, but at  the government's inconsiderate and high-handed  manner of imposing that restraint, as someone said,  "changing the rules in the middle of the game".

Gurney, who has been public utilities chairman,  appointed Area A director Ian Vaughan to the chairmanship of public utilities. Hunter was appointed  finance chairman.  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch, the new village representative on the board took his seat after the election,  which was held at the end of the meeting. The mayor  was unable to take part in discussions prior to the  election, nor was he appointed to any committees by  the new chairman.  mmmmtm  MM  ���MMMIHiaMMMHMHHBMi Coast News, April 26,1982  COASf If VS  The  .Sunshine, f^^^^^_���  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  PuMMwtf tl Qmtont, B.C. aweary Monday by OUttlemJ Pent Lid.

The meeting between the village of Gibsons and the Highways  Department scheduled for today, Monday, April 26 at 1:00 p.m. in  the village offices to discuss matters of public safety was, at the request of the Highways Department, closed to the public and the  newspapers.  The reason for closed meetings can vary: those involved may believe  the public doesn't care anyway; it may be believed that the matter is  too hot for rational public debate; the participants may be press shy;  or as Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch has said of closed meetings generally,  "Maybe somebody has something to hide."  Added to the insistence on a closed meeting, it's the apparent unwillingness on the part of Gibsons council to keep the public informed  about progress on the proposed Gibsons Marina.  Breakwaters are being constructed, surveying is taking place  preparatory to dredging, zoning bylaws are being amended, all apparently to some planned end. All the public is told concerning the  marina is "Negotiations are taking place with Federal officials" or  "Nothing has been signed, yet."  A great deal more openness in its dealings with public matters is  needed in both the village council and the Highways Department. It's  the only way to find out if in fact the people care.  Sewer developments  It is recognized that control over the Sechelt sewer is a highly emotional issue for the Sechelt Village Council. It is also recognized that  the recent ultimatum received from Municipal Affairs Minister seems  designed to compel the Regional Board to relinquish control over the  sewer. There are, however, some questions which must be addressed  on the matter.  With the eventual sewer outfall planned for White Island the area to  be serviced will stretch from West Sechelt almost to Area D and seems  a regional matter unless we envision a giant Sechelt in the not too distant future.  Further, it is not entirely clear what the future of the sewer connection with the Sechelt Indian Band might be if control reverts to the  village, though if the Band does not hook up with the sewer the future  for Trail Bay looks bleak indeed.  With both the Minister of Municipal Affairs and the Mayor of  Sechelt in a muscle-flexing mood, it nevertheless remains unclear that  the power politics now being displayed are in the best interests of the  people of the Sunshine Coast.  Apologies to Tyee  An unfortunate headline in last week's paper may have left the impression, inadvertently, that there was some fault pertaining to Tyee  Air in the accident involving one of their planes in Gibsons Harbour  last week.  Nothing, as the story itself made clear, could be farther from the  truth. The Coast News wishes to make public apology for any mis-  impression that the headline created. Tyee Air has a safety record second to none and the Coast News and the rest of the Sunshine Coast  are both aware and appreciative of that fact.  .from the filet of the COAST NEWS   - -mm *   ^2J  5 YEARS AQO  Boat owners registered their  protests against Increased  wharfage rates at Gibsons harbour.

A small  thing, perhaps, but like a  sliver in your foot or a  burr under your saddle it  makes a difference and  nothing is quite right until you have dealt with it.  1 have such a sliver to  extract this week.     ���-  In a world which is ri  '"wait 'exam'ples of tl  abuse . and.. misuse  language, where thi  God-given gift of communication is used to  confuse rather than inform, where glib phrases  are substituted daily for  the onerous burden of  thinking, I feel one small  salvo of protest must be  fired across the bows of  the good ship obfusca-  tion occasionally.  The bone in my  throat, the dust in my  eye this week, is thi  phrase 'personality conflict'.  Disagree with a local  politician more than  once; criticize a local  play and someone will  nod knowingly and say:  "Ah, yes, well you know  Burnside has a 'personality conflict' with  Mr. X," and sink back  onto the cushions of intellectual indolence well-  satisfied with his or her  understanding of the  situation and the world.  Balderdash, say I.  This is a trivialization  of all concerned. .  Sometimes when politicians and newspapermen  disagree it is because of  real phiiosphic differences.  X disagrees with Y and  Y feels sure that X is a  fool because their  perceptions and  understandings differ.  To lump all such differences under the handy  catch-all of 'personality  conflict' is just a means  whereby the third party  can avoid the difficulties  of weighing each opinion  and reaching a conclusion of his/her own.  Recently a somewhat  critical review of a local  play was explained away  as being a 'personality  conflict' between the  reviewer and the director  of the play.  It is simply trite  nonsense. It overlooks,  for example, the fact  that the same reviewer  was lavish in his praise of  the work of the same  director just a few months ago when he appeared in a local play as  an actor.  Now   the   work   of  critical reviewer is no less  open to criticism than  the work of the people  on stage and if the  reviewer doesn't seem to  know what he's talking  about let it be plainly  and publicly said by  anyone with the capability.  It would be a mean  spirit, indeed who could  not seejejei;jt jq a pfsfie pf  work.because one pf the  people^ involved was not  particularly a friend of  his.  It is mental laziness to  attribute such motivation to a critic or an  editorial writer and may  bespeak a certain mean-  spiritedness in the at-  tributor.  Criticisms of the local  school board, over the  past few years, have been  attributed to the fact that  'Burnside has an axe to  grind', lfhedoes.it is an  enduring concern about  the quality of education  being offered our young  people and the atmosphere in which they  are expected to work.  Disagree with my opinions, by all means.  They ate but | the opinions of one man. But  don't pretend to believe  that-no thought goes into-  them or that they are not  intended to be both  sincere and in the long-  run constructive.  'Personality conflict'  should be seen for what  it is. A phrase which  allows the appearance of  informed comment  without the onerous  prerequisite of any  thinking.  The need for some  perspective in viewing  the important and not so  important events of our  time is effectively  demonstrated in the  news this week. The bitter squabble over  regional board buildings,  control of the Sechelt  sewer system, controversy over the Indian  Band's using the sewage  treatment plant, closed  meetings about public  'safety, all ''sliji in-  , significantly into place  when seen in the light of  Trident submarines in  Puget Sound, 35,000  peace marchers  demonstrating againsl  the arms race, and navies  shooting at one another  in a hitherto-unheard-of  part of the world.  It was one of those  weeks in which the temptation to get close  enough to examine the  fleas   prevented   an  Towards a wider perspective  Riddle of the economy  by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones  The Thirties was a  time when there was  widespread unemployment in the industrial  world coupled with a  great deal of spare  capacity in the economy.  The popular term for  that time - the Depression - reflected not only  the mood of that era, but  also the fact that industrial production  employment rates and  the money supply were  pushed down: people  versus capital.  How to get out of it?  Simple, so it looks now,  the governments merely  borrowed money, i.e.  spent in excess of tax  receipts, boosted demand and like a starter  motor in a car got the  economic machine rolling again. The role that  rearmament played in  this process, as opposed  to more altruistic projects, is a fascinating  wrinkle in the argument.  Today, however, we  have a very different picture. There is growing  unemployment; there is,  outside the USA in many  places, double digit inflation and there are  massive government  deficits. Have the politicians failed us?  The great dream, since  World War Two, of full  employment, comprehensive social services  and a secure future,  looks in jeopardy. A  quarter of all jobs in the  USA are directly related  to the housing and auto  industries. The situation  is similar in Canada, yet  both industries are in  deep trouble. What has  happened?  First, let's look at inflation. Inflation means  that the money incomes  per head of a country are  rising faster than the real  output per head:  remember that living  standards depend upon  output per head. In a  situation of full employment the national income circulates at ever  higher price levels.  Therefore, either the  quantity of money, or its  velocity of circulation  around the system, is increased.  Quantity is determined  by the government's  fiscal or monetary  policy, whereas velocity  may be increased spontaneously by developing  extra credit channels.  Credit cards have almost  become part of this process. A further distinction is to divide inflation  ftito two types: demand-  pull and cost-push.  Today we have a situation into which these  theoretical concepts fit.  There was a continued  increase in the quantity  of money brought about  by government borrowing. There was a massive  increase in money circulation. There was a  demand-pull as people's  expectations for a better  material life, and  government   military  spending, increased.  There was a cost push:  OPEC price rises,  oligopolies cicumventing  normal market forces,  wage demands, and now  high interest rates.  All these factors,  coupled with the  knowledge that prices in  industrial economies are  not very flexible  downwards (inflationary  expectations) fueled the  inflationary fires of the  1970s.  Another way to view  inflation is to see it as  Please turn lo Page 12  overall appreciation of  the dog.  I went to a peace  march once. It was in  London in the early six*  ties, about the time the  Beatles were getting  started. It was a pretty  impressive thing, tens of  thousands of people  gathered in Hyde Park Ip  listen to Bertram Russell  and Peter O'Toole and a  lot of other people I'd  never heard of.        ^J  These "marches were  annual affairs called the  Aldermasion Marches. It  was "ban the bomb"  stuff and quite good and  innocent and pleasant. I  don't recall as there was  a great deal of terror surrounding the whole  thing, just a good time in  the summer.  1 didn't actually walk  the whole distance. In  fact in Hyde Park I met a  girl and we bought some  wine and sat on the grass  and talked and the whole  thing didn't seem too important to me.  When anyone asks me  if I was on any peace  marches in the '60s, 1 say  no 1 wasn't, but once I  heard Bertram Russell  and met a girl and sat in  the sunshine on the Hyde  Park grass.  I have great admiration for peace marchers.  They've done things for  me and all of us, but I've  always been too lazy or  too preoccupied to gel  involved. I know I  should be ashamed of  myself, but when confronted by pelty political  squabbles, Trident submarines, instant death  and girls in the sunshine  in ihe park, I guess I've  jusl been loo selfish to  gel off my grass.

Thomas Hardy letters to the Editor ^^  Coast News, April 26,1962  teave it to our governments  Editor:  '. In your last week's  fcditorial about the arms  race you suggested that  ,We live here on the Sunshine Coast in a state of  illusion and apathy as  (evidenced by the refusal  of the Gibsons Council  to have the question put  bn the ballot and by the  lack of response by the  people of Sechelt.  ! It seems fashionable  loday to label the public  as apathetic whenever  Ihey do not give strong  signals of support for  ipne's own views. I would  [prefer to think that the  [Gibsons Council made a  ���correct judgement (the  jSechelt experience is pro-  jof of it) because there is  ano point asking a question with an obvious  lanswer. Most people I  "talked to recognized that  immediately.  I think one can find  better reasons than  apathy  to  explain  the  lack of more involvement by the public.  First, we elect our  governments to rule us  and most decent people  live by that principle.  Why are we all of a sudden manipulated to  believe that we ourselves  should do the governing?  Second, we just do hot  get all the information  that is necessary to make  a valid decision on  almost anything that is  beyond our immediate  concerns. Third, even if  the public does show  strong concerns, for the  death penalty for example, most of the time  these concerns are ignored by our politicians.  Should   then   the  average person not conclude that it is better for  him to attend to his ordinary daily tasks and  leave the governing to  those he has elected and  is paying for to do just  that job. Perhaps he  feels also like Boris  Pasternak in his famous  novel Dr. Zhivago that  the important thing in  life is how we have loved  one another and that we  can leave the minor  things, like changing the  face of the earth, to the  politicians.  If there would be  enough who follow this  line of thought and action no peace marches  would be necessary.

In particular,  we would like to thank  the Sechelt Marsh Protective Society, Sechelt'  Lions Club, Sechelt Rod  & Gun Club, Tuwanek  and Sandy Hook  Ratepayers, the Sechelt  Indian Band, both  coastal newspapers for  fine coverage, and the  B.C.

Thanks also to the many  companies, groups, and  concerned citizens (including all the kids) of  this area who  volunteered their time  and effort to help out.  Our Committee, at  this time, has no funds to  draw upon, and is composed entirely of concerned individuals. It  was reassuring for us to  see the fine community  effort put forth in order  to keep our waterways  and foreshore areas  scenic and uncluttered.

NOT USING IT  ID COST  YOUR BUSINESS  A .BUNDLE.  With all the other problems  of operating a small business, it's  sometimes easy to put off or  overlook the responsibility of  ensuring that your business is  protected by the Workers'  Compensation Board.  And that could be one of  the most expensive omissions  you ever made.  Because, if one of your  workers is involved in an on-  the-job accident, you would  be liable for the entire  cost of his injuries and  rehabilitation���a cost that  EMI  could be many times that of  compensation coverage.  Don't risk it A simple phone  call or visit to any W.C.B. office will  give you all the information you  need about compulsory or elective  coverage. You'll find that, for a  small cost, you can buy a big piece  of "peace of mind".  EMPLOYEES: if you're not sure  about your coverage, discuss  this ad with your employer  or call the Assessment  Department in your nearest  W.C.B. office.

So an interim committee of Jamie Davidson,  Garry Winchester, Dennis Fitzgerald, Jeanie  Norton, Marlene  Longman and Suzanne  Darin was named lo gel  Ihe ball rolling. More  people will be asked to  join and perhaps even-  lually a committee of  aboul six will be selected.  As Regional Director  1 lurry Almond said, a lot  of money went inlo the  building and Ihe communily should use il. ll is  nol a school building,  but a communily  building. Therefore ii is  important to gel as many  people involved in making policies for ihe  building as possible.  The interim committee  will be meeting ihis  Wednesday. April 28, al  (he Rubens Creek  School if anybody from  llie Parents' Auxiliary or  any other group in (he  community is interested  in joining them.  In other business,  Harry Almond reported  lhal the main problem  facing ihe Regional  Board is the opposition  to the Board's owning ils  own building. He  pointed out lhal Ihe rental payments, over five  years for another  building would be ihe  same as the payments on  a new building. He fell  lhal the opposition was  from people who do nol  want the Regional  District form of governmenl to become loo  established.  Harry also pointed out  the increase in the Province's levy on rural landowners. The mill rale is  now 12 mills instead of  10 and lhat has nothing  to do wilh local services.  Thai, he said, will mean  an increase of $16 lo $20  for Ihe average lax-  payers.  And, finally, Ihe  Roberts Creek Library  needs carpenters. They  want io fix up ihe shelves  bul ihey need some ex-  perl help. Anybody willing lo lend a hand should  contact Moira Richler.

COOPERS GREEN  AGAIN:  I see that there is to be  yet another public hearing on the Coopers  Green zoning matter,  and that is good news indeed. For the benefit of  those of you who may  nol be loo familiar with  the question at stake it  should be explained that  it is a matter of zoning of  the  green.   Application  Christian Science Lecture j  "WHAT DID  JESUS TEACH?"  Sat. May 1st ��� 8 p.m. I  has been made to have  the property all zoned as  commercial. This was  strongly opposed by  many of the residents as  such zoning would make  it possible for whoever  purchased the property  to have some type of  commercial construction  with horrendous consequences to Redrooffs  Road. In one advertisement for the sale of the  property the suggestion  was made for the  possibility of an eighty-  room hotel, which would  of course be followed by  Ihe inevitability of a bar  and the traffic which  would automatically go  tearing up and down this  twisty road. At the present time this is of course  fairly unlikely to happen, but it is up to us to  ensure right now that it  won't ever happen.

It  was a very happy evening, which was enjoyed  just as much by the cast  as by the very responsive  audience. It makes all  the hard work and umpteen rehearsals worthwhile when you see a  hall full of people with  happy faces who are  thoroughly enjoying  your efforts. The group  also performed at  Elphie's Cabaret on  Monday night and those  who did attend had a  thoroughly enjoyable  evening. It was just too  bad that it co-incided  with a hockey game  which kept a lot of people at home with their  telly set. But those who  were there were most enthusiastic, and it was fun  for the group to perform  in a nice club atmosphere. A good experience, and we might  even be asked to do so  again!

If he didn't Itch, he ached. There were little  piles of pillows strewn around where he had to lie down and odd stacks of toys where he'd started to play, but then  decided he wasn't up to it. What I need, 1 said, instead of serving up little dishes of mush, Is to eat something frivolous  - a little poached salmon garnished with cucumber butterflies, strawberries dipped In chocolate, a glass of some bubbly pink stuff, maybe even a flickering candle. Unfortunately, those who are pocky are also picky. He got to the stage  of rejecting all that I suggested and then woke up from a nap and demanded "a omelette'.'So 1 gave him a kind he'd  never had before. It mystified him to the very last bite.

SUCt) TALI\  DOUBLE PARKING-  by Bill Edney  No, this Is not about double parking, which is Illegal, but about the double use of parking space. At night when our  store Is closed, diners at the Omega Restaurant, or dancers at Elphie's Cabaret use the streets and our private parking  spaces to park their vehicles.  In the daytime, to keep spaces available, for the clientele of all the business shops in Lower Gibsons, the village Imposes a 2-hour parking limit bylaw. At this time it is necessary for all vehicles wishing to park for longer periods, to  find off-street parking. The village prepared some ten spaces on one side of School hill and twenty-eight spaces next  to the fire hall. There are others to be found up lanes, and elsewhere If those seeking this kind of parking are not too  lazy to walk a few steps.  The newly proposed Omega Hotel already has parking In place on two levels, under the cabaret off the lane, and a  full floor of parking across the street from us, at the end of the Cabaret and Seaside Fashions.  This space, seldom used by anyone, Is easily accessible off Marine Drive via a down ramp approximately opposite  Murray's Garden Shop. It is for the exclusive use o' the merchants of Seaside Plaza and Ken's Lucky Dollar Foods for  customers while shopping.  As the heavier traffic season approaches, let us all cooperate and use our precious parking wisely and to our mutual  benefit. For owners of businesses here, or their staff to park on the street Is nothing short of thoughtlessness or lack of  consideration for othersl  Our staff parks on our property off the lane behind the store, - a space provided at substantial cost. A few spaces  could be made available for others, if a proper approach is made to us.  Let's cooperate, - heaven knows after one of the worst winters In years we need to accommodate customers and  move off those who have 'gone flshlngl'  Wk  COLS  Sin 6-7*4  Rm Sl 39  SPECIAL PulCHJUE PRICE  $1,09  Wine Glosses  By Libby Si.

Countdown for the  Alcazar  The blitzing of various  landmark hotels in Vancouver's downtown area  has been going on for  some years. Such  establishments as Ihe  York and the Angelus  were early victims of the  wrecker. They went with  little fanfare, leaving  great craters in the ancient sill and nostalgic  twinges in the hearts of  old patrons of which I  was one. The holes in ihe  ground sprouted black  towers and prospered.  The memories remain,  thinning with the distancing years.  In 1981, Ihe venerable  Devonshire went Ihe way  of iis less-esteemed  neighbours. Carefully  mined by an explosives  experl, il imploded  decorously on cue for the  television cameras and  became a heap of innocuous rubble. Since  "The Dcv." was nol one  of my regular watering  spots, I viewed its  downfall wilh considerable detachment.  Page�� from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  A few months ago, I  am sitting in the Alcazar  Pub with a couple of  longtime cronies. Bearded painter Fred Carney I  have known since we  were art students  together in Ihe late Fifties. Dapper Ron Ward  (also a painter) is a  slightly later acquaintance. All of us are  Alca/arilcs of long standing. I hesitate lo  estimate the total  number of hours the  three of us must have  logged in this unpretentious beer parlour, ll  would run inlo several  figures.  The exact attraction of  ihis place would be hard  10 pinpoint. The decor is  hardly uptown chic. The  bilious green ceiling,  stand-up bar, simulated  outdoor-cafe-type tables  with umbrella canopies,  the sentimental, incongruous mural wilh ils  English country garden  and the ever-busy pool  tables, add up to mid-  town, kitsch. The  clientele is nothing  special either - a shifting  m  Gibsons Legion Branch #109  Fri. & Sat.

Yet, the Alcazar  has the indefinable  charm of long familiarity.  But our hanging-  around days are  numbered. Vague  rumours have been circulating for some time  now concerning the imminent demise of the  Alcazar. I had hoped  ihey were only rumours.  Ray MacKenrod, Ihe  barman, however, has  just substantiated them.  The hotel has indeed  been sold to Montreal  Trust who plan to ereel  yet another impersonal  lower on the site. Terry  Finn's Fiesta Lounge  (long a hangout for actors and other show-biz  types), the dining room,  plus the hotel itself, are  slated to close their  doors on New Year's  Eve. The pub will remain  open for a few more  weeks, bul by the end of  January the whole complex will be defunct. An  era is winding up; the lid  is coming down on a  veritable plethora of  legendary gatherings and  lost good times.  1 feel a compulsion lo  write about the place  that almost amounts lo a  sense of tiuiy. In over  thirty years of pretty  regular patronage, I have  developed a definite affection for the Alcazar.  With its clean, quiet  rooms; its well-staffed,  reasonably-priced  restaurant and of course,  the comfortable ambience of its liquor-outlets, the hotel  has provided a strategic  home away from home  for countless travellers.  Initially, I envision ihe  piece as a series of anecdotes, mainly revolving  around the pub. After a  somewhat nasty and  definitely negative article  appears in one of the  local papers, however,  justifiably incensing the  employees, I decide to  change my tack and go  for a more fully-rounded  portrait. To this end, I  conduct a lengthy interview with Owner-  Manager, Bill Wain-  wright, and learn some  surprising facts about  the hotel that has been  both his livelihood and  his life.

Macdonald,  Western Producer 1981, $7.95.  Having suffered through long speeches signifying nothing, witnessing elaborate head tables  wilh one lonely speaker al them and sitting  through endless verbiage on a hard, backless  bench for hours, I am delighted lo see thai  someone has come up wilh a manual for conference organizers.  In a Manner of Speaking recommends  careful selection of a speaker by planners. A  keynote speaker should entertain the audience  while leaving il wilh a few pertinent points. Jusl  because someone has done some great thing  does not mean that he can't talk about it well.,,  The author, R.H. jyiacdonald, ih^efqrp,,  pleads that speakers be chosen for'iheir effec,'.  liveness as speakers, not as doers. Many of the  world's greatest doers, such as presidents, kings  and prime ministers, hire speech-writers -they  got where they are by trusting and using people  who know how to do certain things better than  Ihey can.  Author Macdonald tells horror tales about  speakers who failed, either by their own faull  or, worse still, lhat of the organizers of the  event. Details as minute as podium size and  height, placement of microphones and definite  instructions by the planners regarding time and  theme are vital lo Ihe success of the speaker, no  mailer how talented.  Not jusl an instruction manual for those inviting speakers, this little book gives a brief  history of the art of speech making, ll relates  tales aboul great speeches and speechifiers. It  gives specific directions to organizers about Ihe  business-like handling of Ihe guesl speaker  before, during, and after the speech. In fact,  ihe book's very handy check lisl for planners is  something lhal every conference or workshop  maker should copy. How to write the invitation, how much the honorarium, what ex-  the fact, are all part of In a Manner of Speaking.  An index and a bibliography are available for  the serious banqueteer. .

BEST ACTOR ��� Henry Fonda  BEST ACTRESS  ��� Katherine Hepburn  BEST SCREENPLAY (Adaptation)  Ernest Thompson [ Through One I  Bury Elvis for good  by Bob Hunter  I'm totally fed up with  the flow of garbage that  has been published lately  about Elvis.  We're told that he liked to watch teenage girls  mud-wrestling, that he  was a dope fiend who used SO different drugs to  get through the night,  that he had an ego as  large as any to be found  on Planet Earth, and  that he was so decadent  he used to shoot his  television set if he didn't  like the guy who was appearing.  I'm not sure, for  openers, that there's  anything all that wrong  with watching teenage  girls mud-wrestle. As for  drugs, obviously he overdid it. Ego? How could  you be the Numero Uno  male sex symbol in the  world and not have an  ego problem?  Shooting television  sets? 1 say more power to  him. Wish I could afford  Ihe habit.  It is fashionable these  days to lament the plight  of poor exploited female  stars like Marilyn  Monroe. Yet Elvis is portrayed as sone kind of  Dracula who shambled  at dawn into the dark  cavern of his opulent  mansion.  According to the spate  of biographies that have  just been published,  Elvis was almost as gross  a character as the Roman  emperor Caligula.  He apparently ended  up utterly depraved by  the experience of having  "gotten it on" with tens  of thousands of the most  beautiful young women  ever invented.  Teh. Teh.  Poor Elvis.  I mean, it's a bit difficult to feel sorry for  him, isn't it?  On the other hand, the  kind of vitriolic attacks  that have been launched  against his memory lately have to be countered.  Obviously, a lot of it is  motivated by substantial  doses of envy, which I  can understand.  What I can't understand is the failure of  Elvis's biographers to  show the slightest sign of  compassion for a man  who was a victim of his  own success.  Quite obviously,  Elvis's development as a  mature person was arrested somewhere along  the line. Unlike the rest  of us, he wasn't subjected to the experience  of running into limitations in life, so he  forfeited his chance to  adjust to downgraded  expectations, i.e., to  grow up, as it's called.  I'm not entirely convinced the world is such  a grim place that there';  no room for the occasional immature humar  being who gets away  with completely indulging himself.  The thing I always loved about Elvis was the  man's sheer blind  underserving luck. The  world was a brighter  place because Elvis  showed so clearly that  you could win it all  without doing a single  thing really to earn it.  Oh. Except sing. And  gyrate.  Boy, did I ever wish 1  was him. And of course I  wasn't the only one.  I might as well confess  that I was an early Elvis  clone. That is, as soon as  1 could, I grew  sideburns. Yes, I had a  duck-tail that glistened  and wore my collar turned up.  At one time or  another, I owned seven  different      guitars,  without managing' to  ever learn more than two  chords. As it turned out,  I'm tone deaf, so there  really wasn't much  point.  The fact that 1 went  through puberty at the  very time Elvis was appearing on the scene  defines my life in many  ways. Every young guy  at that stage identified  with him, however  secretly.  And so a part of our  permanent identity,  years later, is a kind of  closet Elvis-self that  gyrates upon the stage of  the mind while a billion  imaginary girls scream in  ecstasy.  I don't think for a  minute, as his malicious  biographers would have  us believe, that his life  was a waste. Au con-  traire, he gave men  dreams to dream.  Self-indulgent dreams,  sure. But what's wrong  with a bit of self-  indulgence anyway?  Elvis, they're doin' ya  wrong.  Just a bunch of,  hound-dogs, I guess.

"When we  need rain the sun  shines." Orchard said  that Hanson's Ark had  been scheduled early in  the season in the hope  that the weather would  co-operate. No such  luck.  The illusion of torrential rain was achieved by  use of seven rain towers,  'big poles like giant lawn  sprinklers'.  Producer Orchard  paid "tribute to the  assistance received during the filming of the  episode from the Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department. The fire  department enabled the  television crew to tap into fire hydrants on Reed  Road and by Molly's  Reach.  The LeWarne property was invaded by staging trucks, lighting  trucks, Winnebagos for  dressing rooms, and portable Johnny-on-the-  Spot toilets - all of which  had to be kept out of  camera range.  Hanson's Ark was  written by Andrew  Wreggitt and directed by  Rene Bonniere who was  described as a 'crew  favourite'.  The story of Hanson's  Ark concerns an old  Swede, Sven Hanson,  who in the midst of the  constant downpour is  constructing what appears to be an ark. The  impression is heightened  by the appearance, two  at a time, of goats, raccoons, and doves.  Early skepticism  among the cast regulars  begins to give way as the  rain continues and soon  everyone is helping Hanson to build his ark 'just  in case'.  A Ubiquitous Scot, a  neighbour of the  LeWarne's on Reed  Road watched the filming with great interest  and finally observed:  "If you turned that  thing over and covered it  with plastic it would  make a first-rate  greenhouse."  And what, according  to the script, was Sven  Hanson doing building  his 'ark'? You guessed it.  He was going to turn it  over, cover it with plastic  and use it for a  greenhouse.

SERVICES  Design Drafting  886-7442  Let's quit  Editor:  During our farming  days, we were told of a  neighbour who got so  mad with his harvesting  machine, because it  refused to perform as it  should, that he smashed  it to pieces with a sledge  hammer.  That reminds one of  the behaviour of the  Canadian separatists.  Their conduct could  wreck this country that  most of us love. That  farmer could have got  someone else to help him  make some adjustments  to his machine, so it  would do the job it was  made to do and could do  well. It is foolish to  think that Western  Canada or Quebec can  solve all our problems by  breaking up the  country!! But they  could, conceivably, persuade a frustrated elec-  bathing Ottawa  torate to give them a  mandate. They would  still have to put into effect rational plans,  which were available to  them before. We can only hope and pray that  cool heads will prevail.  It seems to me that a  major cause of our problems is the high price of  energy. We must reduce  interest rates. This seems  to be coming. Inflation is  increased by those who  have the power to extract  higher salaries of wages,  or profits. Government  is a culprit there. We  should all settle for a little less. Would those  people advocating the  "Western Canada Concept" also demand indexed pensions? Would  they be any less selfish  that we all are now? I  think not. No matter  who runs our country,  we must sooner or later  come to our senses. We  must put a little more in  and take out less. This is  the best country in the  world and we should  stand up and say so.  Let's quit Ottawa  bashing. Let's show  Quebec that we, and  they, have been too  critical of each other and  we are ready to go more  than half way to be worthy of each other's  respect as fellow Canadians.  What other country  would permit any group  to propose to break it  up.  The Western Concept  and or Quebec  Separatism should be  submitted to the  Supreme Court of  Canada and also  Quebec's Bill 101.  Very truly yours,  E.W.

j A well maintained car
pot only gives you peace
pf mind, but can save
you money in the long
run. After all, nobody
relishes the thought of
being stranded along the
highway, especially at
; Bud Koch, Sunshine
CM, passes along some
Important safety and
troubleshooting tips
Which can help you keep
!our car in tip-top condi-
! First of all, check your
fceatbelts and hazard
lights often to make sure
ihey are working proper-
It's also a good idea
check your oil every
other gas fillup, especially if your car is over five
iears old. At the same
r,ime, give your fan belt a
tjwist - if you see any
cracks, replace it.
Your battery should
ie checked periodically,
oo. It can be done easily
it home when your car is
old - simply unscrew
ach cap and make sure
hat there is water
mderneath each one. If
tot, add distilled, not
ap water. To check your
adiator, simply ensure
hat there is water in the
;reen reserve tank.
Every 3,000 miles or
o, have your car lubed
ind replace the oil and
liter. Have them look at
'our tires, muffler and
hocks, too. If you
hange your own oil and
titer, make sure to
crape off the old filter
: eal and install the new
i me property.
All of these are things
rou can do yourself if
you wish, or can be done
by your local gas station
or car dealer
maintenance department.
A safe driver always
has one ear tuned to the
car. If you hear a squeal
or grinding noise when
the brakes are applied,
they need immediate attention. A ticking noise
in the engine could be the
alternator or the fan
belt, or possibly dry tap-
pits. Don't ignore it, but
have it checked.
Always carry a good
spare tire, flashlight,
flares, pencil and paper.
Should you have problems, make sure you're
well off the road. Put up
your hood, turn your
emergency flashers on,
and stay in your car.
You'll be surprised at
how soon someone will
stop to offer help. It's
also a good idea to carry
the number of your
mechanic or car dealer
with you so you can give
them a call. Even if
you're travelling away
from home, call them
before you authorize any
maintenance. It might be
something that can wait
until you're home, or
something that really
isn't necessary.
If you're alone and
run into problems on an
isolated stretch of road
night, Bud suggests that
you take special precaution. Lock your doors,
turn on your emergency
flashers, and stay in your
car. If you see help approaching, jot down
their license number and
put it in the visor or
glove compartment. Roll
down your window just
enough to communicate
and ask if they would {
summon help for you.
In   conclusion.   Bud

 B 12  Coast News, April 26,1982  McRae questions  SCRD building  A motion to execute the interim purchase agreement on the proposed purchase of a construction site  and new building to house the Sunshine Coast  Regional District offices was passed Thursday night  on the condition that board members are given cost  figures for landscaping and blacktopping.  The interim agreement, if signed, would be subject  to arranging financing and approval of plans for construction. Any encumbrances on the property purchased would have to be free and clear before any  purchase is completed.  The issue of blacktopping and landscaping arose  when Area C director Jon McRae asked for comparison figures on a readjustment in the original  plan, in which builder Henry Hall offered to pay for  a heat pump for the building in exchange for not providing paving and landscaping. The directors were  told they would be given these figures before any  agreement is signed.  When asked to speculate on what might happen if  the property were encumbered with an excessive mortgage, regional board director Harry Almond told  the Coast News that "We'd just have to cancel the  thing".  Area C director Jon McRae told the Coast News  that he thought it would be a mistake to proceed with  building at this time. He said that given current  market conditions, renting space would be wise, at  least in the short run. He also suggested that since, in  his view, it was likely restructuring of the district  would be accomplished within the next two to four  years, a new board building may become redundant.  Regional board figures show that leasing space in  Royal Terraces would cost taxpayers a total of  $880,000 by 1990; a lease-purchase arrangement in  the same facility would cost $972,000. The proposed  site purchase and building construction will cost an  estimated $374,000. Whether this later figure can be  maintained, given current high rates of interest, is  not known.  *��,,-��� ������m';*��A.,iy: ���"������:  I.J5�� ������: '&*!���'���    ;M   '  l&mW'f  fV     *  ' - . r   f'J  ���M'S',b>!$ ������ ������' ��i  *';*?' ���������'   s,rf  ''���AtleX'      *   * '  '^SmWmmX'    mT  ��  m : ���  ;'''���������  *��?< .,, "-4  *' -fit*  ���'*(%  [Mm  IL.';, ma  Economic riddle  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded to the first  person whose name Is chosen correctly identifying  the location of the above.

Revenue uproar  President of the Union of British Columbia  Municipalities (UBCM) J. Tonn of Nelson, B.C. has  criticized the Provincial Revenue Sharing program,  which this year reduced payments to B.C.  Municipalities by 40%.  In a press release to all municipalities, Tonn stated  that government revenue from the program this year  was $22 million higher than in 1981. However,  government restraint and a new format for sharing  has reduced unconditional grant payments to  municipalities from $162 million in 1981 to $99  million in 1982.  Gibsons revenue loss from the sharing program is  down 7.6% or $15,305 less than the grant money  received from the province last year it was reported at  Tuesday's council meeting. However, larger  municipalities, those with a population over 2,500,  have been harder hit and will have to make up their  losses by taxing property-owners higher or by reducing services to taxpayers.  Gibsons final budget figures will be decided in May  when the council will set the village's 1982 mill rate  for taxation.

Within a country  this means that those  who can hedge against  inflation prosper, while  those who cannot are impoverished. People on  fixed incomes, or people  in non-union jobs, or  people without capital to  invest, lose.  There is, in fact, a  larger income distribution battle. It has been  between the industrialized nations and the  OPEC cartel. This battle, especially in the case  of the US, has centred  around the outflow of  capital from buyers of  oil to producers of oil.  Ironically, the massive  OPEC surpluses provided a cheap source of borrowing for governments  wishing to deficit  finance. That has now  gone due to the fall in oil  prices and governments  now compete with industrial investors on  domestic markets.  This, of course, puts  up the price of money  even further, partly out  of a demand push, but  also because consumer  (i.e. government) lending  is a better risk than industrial investment.  The American high interest rates and deflationary policies have attracted the lost bucks  back to the fold and have  assured the continued  security of the rich in  America. The real  danger in all this is that  the US economy, and  those economies allied to  it, will be irrevocably  damaged in the process.  The productive heart of  the industrialized world  may be given a shock  from which it will not  recover.  The need is for us to  re-define the nature of  our economic life. The  twin forces of political  centralization and  economic atomization  envisage men as nothing  but conscripts for state  and corporate needs.  Perhaps our real problem is our insistence on  the values of the market  place being paramount  in our vision of community.

Vancouver, was found overturned off Grace Island early Sunday  morning with 6 bullet holes in her hull. Investigation by Rescue Cenlre and RCMP divers revealed no further evidence in Ihe incident.  - Vene Parnell Ptwlo  Not owned by Gibsons  Brothers Park shock  by Vene Parnell  Due lo a misunderstanding in Victoria, Brother's  Park has never been owned by ihe Village of Gibsons.  The shocking knowledge came io light in recent  weeks, when the village searched the covenant lo ihe  title lo establish whal sort of buildings are allowed in  ihe park.  The 15 acre park has been used by Ihe village for  almost 20 years and was donated as a gift by Jackson  Brothers Logging Co.  However, the transfer from provincial park status  ���|p privale ownership by Gibsons Village was noi  completed in 1974.and Brother's Park has been  Crown Land ever since.  Swim confusion  The oversight happened in Victoria, where the  Order-in-Council to transfer ihe park lo the village  was never carried oul.  A letter from Gibsons lo the Parks Branch in  March confirmed the village's desire lo have title to  the park and a letter received last week staled Gibsons will receive a Crown Gram for the Brother's  Park sile to be used "for park purposes only".  Recreation Chairman Aid. Diane Strom lold Ihe  Coasl News the village has spent al least $100,000 on  Brother's Park over the years and has always acted in  the belief lhat ownership had been transferred lo Ihe  village.  Highway safely in the Shaw Road and Sunnycrest  Mall area of Gibsons was brought to council's alien-  lion Tuesday through a letter from Janice Reid.  Reid senl council a copy of her letter to Minisler of  Highways, Alex Fraser, describing the serious situation al Sunnycrest Mall where residents from Shaw  Road, Davis Road, Poplar Lane and the new O'Shea  Road development have no other access io ihe rest of  the village, except by crossing Ihe Highway 101.  Reid drew attention to the fact lhal belween Norlh  Road and Payne Road exists a busy commercial core  combined wilh the coast's iwo largest schools.  "The problem is that ihere are no crosswalks,  overpasses or pedestrian lights to allow people on  fool io cross the highway in safely.  "Crossing the highway is a problem for people of  all ages, especially children and ihe elderly.  "I am aware lhal (he Ministry of Highways and  Ihe village of Gibsons have long-term plans io  develop the highways and access routes in a few  years. I don'l feel we can pay the price of wailing. A  situation exisls where a serious accident or fatality is  going to occur," slated Reid in her letter.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard confirmed lhal ihe situation has been a concern io the village for some lime,  "bul we simply can't get the Depanrnenl of  Highways io agree lhal ihere is enough traffic at lhal  point to warrant a traffic light."  Recently, School Dislrict #46 prepared a brief to br-  .    V  ing suggestions to Highways lo deal wilh the busy  highway, which is used by ferry traffic.  Over the lasl three years, several meetings have  been held belween Ihe village of Gibsons, School  Dislrict #46 and the Highways, bul always lhe answer  has been lhat the situation is noi serious enough.  Further, the impact of ihe 250 car ferry which will  begin service lo the Coasl in June, may result in a  much worse situation than exisls now.  Gibsons village has requested a traffic light al  Shaw Road bul has been lold thai unless Highways  agreed it was necessary ihe $60,000 cosl would have  lo be borne by ihe village, alone.  Highways dislrici manager in Gibsons, Tucker  Forsylhe, said if Highways agreed there is sufficienl  traffic then a light could be installed on a cost-  sharing basis wilh Highways paying as much as 2/3  of the cosl.  A meeting has been called by ihe village lo meel  with Highways Monday, April 26 lo discuss Ihe problem further.  A special requesl has been made by Highways  manager Forsylhe to close ihe meeting lo ihe public  and the press.  by Paddy Richardson  Presidenl, Gibsons  Aquatic Club  ll has come lo the attention of Ihe Gibsons  Aquatic Club - Chinook  Swim Team, lhal Ihere is  some confusion in the  communily regarding a  Swim-a-thon held by our  club on Saturday, April  17th, 1982, and a Beal-a-  thon held by ihe Synchronized swimming  group held Thursday,  April 15th, 1982.

But it was the  stalwart play of regulars  Dave Lamb, captain  Ivan Dixon, Ken McNab  and Tommy McPhail of  the Bruins, who all contributed to the success of  the local team. The  Bruins won their first  three games, heading  them into the finals  unbeaten and a chance at  the first place prize  money. But a stubborn  and very young Burnaby  Bingers hockey club  came back to defeat the  Bruins in the championship game 5-3. All  players enjoyed the "no-  hitting" style of hockey  and hope the local league  reconsiders its stand on  the next year's brand of  hockey.

Could not they  be replaced by books and  books of essays, books  IRS  ���   /  and books of peoms,  books and books of well-  written short stories, all  to be tied in with all  kinds of written  assignments based on  study of authors' skills?  My first experience  with the power of  English to annoy the  adult world (and a great  discovery it seemed to  me at the time!) was a  parody on the Twenty-  Third Psalm I wrote for  our school paper.

This parody gained our school much unwanted notoriety, being  considered sacriligious  and profane by certain  School Trustees and  brought down untold official wrath upon the  principal.  Writing parodies, or  using good writing as a  model can aid students  to original effort. 1 used  to challenge my students  to read and paraphrase  Isaak Walton's Corn-  pleat Angler, which went  something like this: 'O,  sir, doubt not but that  angling is an art! Is it not  an art to deceive a trout  with artificial fly? A  trout, that is more sharo-  oighted than any hawk  you can name and more  watchful and timorous  than your high-mettled  marlin is bold? And yet I  doubt not to catch a  brace or two  tomorrow..." Of many  hilarious essays, none of  the class will ever forget  that effort by the youth  who wrote: "O, sir,  doubt not that eating in  school is an art! Is it not  an art to deceive a  teacher? A teacher! that  is more sharp-sighted  than any hawk and more  watchful and meaner  than a starving  wolverine? And yet I  doubt not to eat one apple, two Mars bars and  three doughnuts before  the noon hour tolls..."  Students who love  puns, especially the outrageous kind, who appreciate fantastic rhyme  schemes and subtle wit,  are usually keen on  limericks. "There once  was a lady of Niger/  Who smiled as she rode  on a tiger./ They came  back from the ride/ With  the lady inside/ And the  smile on the face of the  tiger." "The bottle of  perfume that Willie sent/  Was highly displeasing  to Millicent./ Her thanks  were so cold/ That they  quarrelled, I'm told/ Of  that silly scent Willie sent  Millicent."  In 1937, George  Orwell wrote an essay  titled "Down the Mine".  His first paragraph  reads: "Our Civilization  is founded upon coal,  more completely than  one realizes until one  stops to think about it.  The machines that keep  us alive, and the  machines that make  machines, all directly or  indirectly depend upon  coal..." Students can  take this paragraph and  substitue "oil", or  "atomic energy" or  "computers", or the  item of their choice.  Because the original is  written in a calm, rational manner, the student will write his  thoughts in a calm,  methodical way.  There is no need for  each student to begin a  writing career as a  literary Adam in the  Garden of Eden. Great  pioneers have gone  before, and students will  gain power and strength  from following in their  footsteps.  What, you may well  ask, what about Creative  Writing? "We are doing  Creative Writing in  English now", I hear  some little ones say.  How many adults every  attempt Creative  Writing? A powerful  essay was once written  about topics given by an  English teacher by a boy  who lived and breathed  freight trucks. He was  unable to write "What a  Daffodil Thinks of Springtime" and failed his  test. No poet ever wrote  a memorable poem  without being profoundly moved by his subject,  moved in a soul-  shattering, inescapable  manner that demanded  expression in words.  Although the words  are very simple, James  Stephens' poem "The  Snare" could never be  written by a child bidden  to do "Creative  Writing": I hear a sudden cry of pain!/ There  is a rabbit in a snare:/  Now I hear the cry  again./ But I cannot tell  from where. But I cannot tell from where/ He  is calling out for aid!/  Crying on the frightened  air,/ Making everything  afraid!/ Making  everything afraid!/  Wrinkling up his little  face!/ As he cries again  for aid:/ - And I cannot  find the place!/ And I  cannot find the place/  Where his paw is in the  snare!/ Little one! Oh,  little one! I am searching  everywhere!"  Power Squadron  by Cyril D.

As the years have ticked  remorselessly by, accelerating as they increase in number, I find  myself wondering how  many of my friends and  companions of the North  African campaign still  survive and how the experience affected them  when, at war's end, they  divested themselves of  their uniforms and attempted to adjust to  civilian life. Many were  ten or more years my  junior so I am sure that  some of them, if not all,  are scattered somewhere  over the country and it  would be most interesting, at least to me,  to be able to find out  how they are doing and  how they are coping with  this business of growing  old.  Although I cannot  with any certainty state  the exact number of men  in our bomber squadron,  I would imagine it was  between 350-400 men.  As I have remarked  previously, the mortality  rate was heavy, especially among the air crew  who were, for the most  part, of commissioned  rank, but while we were  there in that God forsaken, hellish, hot spot  in the Tunisian desert  there was no discrimination as regard rank. The  officers had their own  mess tent and sleeping  quarters certainly, but  they ate the same food (if  it could be described as  such), received the same  ration of water and suffered the same discomforts common to us all.  It would be a fairly  simple task to describe  the flora and fauna of  the region in which our  airfield was located.  With regard to the first,  there was only one living  thing growing in all that  vast expanse of burning  sand and that was a  small stunted type of  shrub that resembled the  common gooseberry  bush, with the exception  that it had no fruit on it.  It was called the Camel  Thorn and was appropriately named as it  had about an inch in  length sharp spikes on  the branches and only  the camels would, in an  extremity, attempt to eat  it.  Apart from the flocks  of sheep and goats of the  wandering Bedouins,  there, were no animals  that could survive the  shimmering heat and  waterless conditions.  However there was an interesting and at times aggravating collection of  insects that plagued our  lives, including two  species of scorpions, one  yellow and the other  black. The sting from the  former, although exceedingly painful, was  seldom fatal but the  smaller black bastards  inflicted a wound that,  unless one received  prompt medical attention, would result in convulsions and a speedy  death. It was a nightly  ritual before we climbed  into bed to shake out and  carefully examine not  only our blankets but the  greatcoats that we used  as an extra covering as  surprisingly, as soon as  the sun disappeared over  the horizon, the desert  could become extremely  cold.  There were two species  of lizards, a small one  that resembled a  salamander or'newt and  the other about 18 inches  long that, while not normally aggressive, could  administer a nasty bite  Christian Science Lecture |  "WHAT DID  JESUS TEACH?"  Sat. May 1st - 8 p.m.  when cornered or aroused. I remember the occasion when one of the  cooks, young Jimmy K.  who was a notorious late  riser and hard to  awaken, seemed  unusually reluctant to  leave his bed. "Old  John" K. happened to  spot one of the big  lizards that had scuttled  behind a box. Grabbing  it by the tail he raised the  blanket under which  Jimmy was snoring away  and tossed the reptile in  with him! In less time  than it takes to describe,  Jimmy who slept in the  nude was out of bed  screaming bloody  murder, with the angry  lizard fastened on to one  of his buttocks. He was  still yelling and still stark  naked when he hit the  big mess tent where,  amidst general laughter,  I ordered him to get back  to his tent and get some  clothes on. From that  day on the task of  awakening him was a little easier especially if,  when he managed to get  one eye opened, he  perceived that "Old  John" was the "waker-  upper"!  Apart from the odd  amusing diversion, such  as I have described, life  in the desert was a pretty  grim business and as the  days dragged tediously  by, the combined effects  of the heat, the dust and  the flies, not to mention  the poor food and the  scarcity of water,  became apparent in our  behaviour. Our tempers  became frayed and we  snapped and snarled at  one another for the most  petty of reasons.  It was at such times  that someone, possibly  the medical officer,  recommended that we  get what was known as  an R. and R. period so  that for a few welcome  and thrice-blessed days,  we went on leave to the  Mediterranean port of  Monastir. It was neither  an Algiers or a Tunis,  nor was it any Sodom or  Gommorah, but if one  knew the ropes one could  rustle up some wine,  women and song. At  least it helped in preserving our sanity although it  was doubly hard when  the short leave was over  and it was time to return  to the desert!

Wickwire  sells fresh fruit and  vegetable door to door in  the village.  a The  Sunshine  Coast  Arts Council was given  an emphatic refusal from  council on its request for  a meeting of all concerned to discuss village  plans to construct a  storage building on the  public works property  adjacent to the Arts Centre. Arts Council  spokesman Burrell  Swartz was told by the  mayor, "This is the bottom line; we're going to  put our little shed there  Stelck's budget  draws praise  : A 1982 budget of  $1,165,150, featuring a  mill rate lowered from 29  to 23.4, was presented to  Sechelt Council Wednesday by retiring finance  chairman Brian Stelck.  ; Highlights of the  village budget include:  ��� ��� Capital expenditures  of $40,000 for road improvements and sidewalk  planned for Ocean  Avenue from Greene  Court to Cowrie.  ;��� A $30,000 surplus  left over from the 1981  budget.  ; ��� Revenues from property taxes of $211,629  raised from 23.4 mills of  toe total $9,049,564 taxable assessments.  $26,000 for special  works for boulevard improvements.  ��� Grants to the Sechelt  Marsh Society of $800;  $2,000 to the Chamber  of Commerce; $800 to  the Debris Control Committee and $500 for this  year's Timber Days and  another $500 for the  1980 Timber Days committee.  ��� $30,000 for drainage  improvements.  In commenting on the  1982 budget, Sechelt  Mayor Bud Koch commended the finance  chairman for "a job well  done" and said the  budgel showed restraint  and responsibility.   and that's the way it is."  An agreement between  ihe regional board and  the village to move  public works storage to  the sewage site was not  possible because of construction problems at the  site.  A request to change  the development permit  for Sunco Developments  project in Porpoise Bay  to allow a redesign of  overhead and  underground wiring was  approved by council.  The proposed change  will save the developer  $65,000 in costs.  A $13,000 Sechelt  Parks Development project will employ five people this summer at a total  cost to the village of  $2,500 was announced.  Village clerk, Malcolm  Shanks was commended  by council for his contributions to the community, specifically his  recent work with the  Timber Days and Debris  Control committees.  Alderman Brown was  appointed Deputy  Mayor for six months.  Alderman Kolibas was  appointed as Mayor  Koch's deputy for his  duties as Sechelt  representative on the  regional board.  Police news  The new improved highway junction at Madeira Perk to mech appreciated by  the people of the area and all those passing through. The yellow centre lines on  Highway 101, however, come to a sudden stop Just shortly beyond the Junction  and residents of the north end of Ihe peninsula are hopeful that II won't be loo  long before Ihe Department of Highways, whose infinite wisdom to unquestioned, see fit to complete the improvements. -i*. mmwtm, ram  Radio equipment sought  Art McPhee, Area Coordinator for the Provincial Emergency Program  has recommended that  the villages and regional  district obtain radio  equipment with the  capability of using at  least two emergency frequencies besides a working channel.  He has pointed out in  PEP's semi-annual  report that there is also  an urgent need for an  allocated Broadcast  Band frequency with a  local control, such as is  provided at Squamish by  the CBC low power FM  broadcast facility. This  installation would greatly facilitate the communication of an  emergency threat in our  area.  With the co-operation  of the PEP station in  Nanaimo, which is a  high powered 35 watt  station mounted high  behind the city, local  PEP people can communicate with the PEP  "reference office" in  Surrey in case of a  disaster. "We can also  take advantage of the excellent facilities of the  Amateur Radio Association of B.C. to organize  a network to provide fot  this requirement even  more directly, and we  can establish communications direct if and  when the telephone  system should fail,"  noted McPhee. "We are  less able, though, to  communicate from one  end of the peninsula to  the other." A 'repeater'  on Vancouver Island, or  a system of relay points  along the route could  faciliate communications  locally.  me SUNSHINE COAST  REALTOR  A Glassford Press Publication.

I have for a long time  felt that we British Columbia should be  developing a mariculture  industry on our coast.  Japan and Norway are  making great strides in  the business of fish farming. While these two  countries are forging  ahead with this new industry we in Canada cannot decide what branch  of government should  look after this new enterprise. Should it be the  Federal Department of  Fisheries or the Department of Agriculture or  maybe the Provincial  Department of Fish and  Wildlife?  These problems and  many others were  presented at the regular  monthly meeting of the  Pender Harbour Wildlife  Club last week by Brad  Hope. Brad Hope and  his wife June are the enthusiastic and hardworking owners of Tidal Rush  Marine Farms Ltd. in  Hidden Basin on Nelson  Island.  In his extremely in  teresting and information packed talk Brad  pointed out that the  world production of fish  from wild sources is 60  million metric tonnes  and the production from  mariculture is six million  tonnes. In 1985 it is expected that the production      total      from  mariculture will have  reached the 60 million  tonnes of the present  production from wild  stocks. In Japan, all  departments of government and the public cooperate in the production and harvesting of  seafood from farming  methods. He said if  Canada is going to improve its declining  economy a better  method of seafood production is the logical  answer but the government must form policy  and marketing procedures must be improved.  When answering the  many questions from his  audience after his talk  and slide presentation,  Brad was asked by one  person how he got  started in fish farming  and did he have a degree  in marine biology? Brad  answered that he and his  wife were farmers al  heart and when they  came from the prairies  they fell in love with  B.C. but could nol find a  place to farm. They liked  Nelson Island so they  decided to try fish farming as an occupation.  Brad had a degree in  Political Science which  proved to be invaluable  in solving the many problems in dealing with  Federal and Provincial  bureaucracies.

LOCALLY OPERATED GOV'T INSPECTED  For Control of Carpenter Ants,  Rodents and Other Pests  OUR SPECIALTY:  Pre-Treatment of Houses  Under Contruction  For Confidential  Advice end  Estimate Call  883-2531  Pender Harbour  Board bends on  budget trimming  THOMAS HEATING  by Maryanne West  At Ihe suggestion of the Superintendent the School  Board has fired off a telex to the Minister of Finance  asking for a meeting with him on or before May 7  unless approval for the Chatelech extension has been  received by lhal lime.  CM. Projects reported on progress al West  Sechelt and Roberts Creek. Both projects are a couple of weeks or more behind schedule.  West Sechelt lost two weeks when a shipment of  vinyl board had to be returned lo Edmonton because  it was the wrong thickness. Roberts Creek had to  wait for Hydro.  In March the School Board unanimously refused  lo revise its approved budget until the new legislation  was in place, to protest the provincial government's  legislation by television; "an advertisement sandwiched between Captain Kangaroo and Sesame  Street" as trustee Hodgins put it.  Last week an ultimatum was received from Victoria: "If we do not receive further informalion from  you before Friday, April 23rd, il will be necessary for  us to finalize your budgel based on our recalculation  of your 1982 budget, Section A-J as previously sent  to you". This gave rise lo considerable discussion al  last week's Board meeting. Trustee Stephen fell  strongly that nothing had really changed, the principle lhat a school Financing Act cannot be superceded  until the new Act has been proclaimed and passed by  the Legislature is still the same. The Board had  prepared its budgel legally within the requirements of  the current legislation and Government has no right  to try to coerce School Boards to break the law.  Trustee McKibbin, while appreciating the point fell  that as the new legislation has now been tabled in the  Legislature, we would only be splitting hairs and that  we had already faced up to the inevitability of the  cuts and we shouldn't risk antagonizing the government further, as they might retaliate by burying Ihe  Chatelech approval which is so imporlanl (o us.  Trustee Puchalski proposed a compromise amendment to the motion which would furnish the required  information to the governmenl with the proviso that  the informalion is only "effective upon Ihe date that  the Education (Interim) Act is proclaimed". This was  agreed to by a 4-3 vote.  THE HEAT PUMP COMPANY  V  CALL NOW!  886-7111  AlilDOMi  CEDAR  H0H1ES  - Natural, Beautiful B.C.
