Array Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.1  The Sunshine  ii  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     July 4,1988 Volume 42 Issue 27  Realty watch  Realtors to aid  in crime work  Drunk drivers, cal burglars,  and criminals of all stripes on  the Sunshine Coast may soon  find the deck stacked heavily  against them.  Realty Walch, a crime  prevention program which  began in Vancouver in 1984,  should be fully in place on ihe  Coasl within a month, according to Sunshine Coast Real  Estate Association President  Don Siemens.  The program was conceived  of by realty agents who  recognized untapped potential  in the thousands of car miles  Ihey log per week. It works like  this: the 67 Coast realtors, some  of whom drive vehicles with  cellular phones, will function as  a kind of fleet of ghost cars.  If during the course of their  realty work, they encounter  suspiciously behaving citizens,  curious events, or speeding or  erratically-driven vehicles, the  realtors will report the incidents  to local RCMP detachments.  The police will either respond  immediately (in cases where the  law is clearly being broken), or  file the informalion for possible  investigative use.  "It's so simple, it's brilliant,"  says Sechelt RCMP Constable  Al Burning. While it's too early  to see any tangible benefits  from the program here, Bunting  is confident the scheme will  reduce crime significantly.  "Wc stand a better than  average chance here because of  ihe size of the community and  ihe generally good relationship  between citizens and police," he  says.  it's like having 67 new pairs  of eyes watching the community" says Siemens. "If we can  get people to stop and think,  "I'm nol going to have that extra drink", or "it's not worth it  lo break into that home", we're  successful."  Breaking and entering crimes  are increasing in British Columbia. Precaution is Ihe best protection, say police, and  homeowners can do most of it  themselves.  Such security measures as installing dead-bolt door locks,  engraving valuables, taking care  not to leave tell-tale signs that  you are away, and refusing to  let strangers without valid  credentials into your home will  help keep crime al bay.  Sechell Celebration Days revelers found the action in tents at  Hackett Park Saturday. Hundreds of Coast residents listened lo  music, toured exhibits, and gobbled hot dogs during the well-  organized evenl. -V��n Elliott photo  Crane operator dies in accident  Tragedy strikes local fish farm  by Bruce Grierson  Tragedy struck a Sunshine  Coast salmon farm Wednesday,  as a crane which was hauling a  fish net out of a pen toppled off  the barge from which it was  operating, crashed through a  farm dock, and sank to the bottom of Wood Bay.  The body of crane operator,  Thomas Edward Martin, of  Garden Bay was recovered  Thursday.  The crane, owned by Tllllcum  Towing Company was called in  after workers at the Wood Bay  Fish Farm were unable lo  manually haul up a heavy  mussel-encrusted net during a  routine net change.  Farm worker, Sue Call-  inghan, who was standing 20  metres away on the dock of an  adjoining pen when the accident  occurred, said the crane had  just pulled the net from the  water and was extended perpendicular to the barge when the  rear legs of the unattached  crane lefl the barge and ihe  machine rocked forward and into the water.  "Two of our own employees  (Elliott Banford and farm  manager Scott Macy) were  lucky lo get out of ihere," said  A bargaining tactic  CPU takes strike vote  Callinghan, explaining that the  two bolted in differenl directions as the crane hit the farm,  the north dock literally coming  apart under their feet.  Workers called immediately  for an ambulance, and "within  minutes", Macy had donned  scuba gear and dived into the  pen. He surfaced some ten  minutes later, unable to locate  Ihe operator in the tangled netting. When it became apparent  thai neither ambulance  employees nor an RCMP dive-  team called lo the scene could  reach the operator until the  crane was raised, arrangements  were made for a tugboat to tow  in the larger Crown Forest crane  and barge. The Tillicum crane  was finally raised around 7 pm  the following day.  Farm owner, Roger Engeset,  told the Coasl News Saturday  that three of the farm's 12 pens  were damaged in the accident,  one irreparably. As well, a pen-  ful of Coho salmon escaped as  the replacement nel was torn  from its moorings, and a  smaller quantity of Chinook  salmon was lost from the adjacent pen. Engeset said the  salmon were within two months  of being harvested.  The Tillicum crane used a  hydraulic process lo both lift  and lower its cargo and so could  not freely disengage the load.  One observer reported: "I  heard the crane engine speeding  up just before it started to go  over, as though the operator  were trying to drop the net."  Sport fishermen cruised  within 30 metres of the farm  Friday and Saturday, hoping to  land some of the rogue farm  salmon.  The Tillicum Towing Company declined comment on the  incident.  Wakefield Inn  marks its 50th year  Overshadowed by Canada Day festivities, a local landmark  saw its own odometer wrap July 1.  Fifty years ago, Charlie Retta purchased the home of  World War I and II veteran and provincial policeman. Major  T. Douglas Sutherland, and turned it into what now stands as  the Wakefield Inn pub.  The pub changed hands twice in ihe early !960's before being snapped up on July 1, 1969 by the Radymski family of  Sechelt, who developed the five acre establishment into (he  present Inn, with bed and breakfast and lennis club.  To celebrate the pub's golden anniversary and the 19th  year of their own tenure, current co-managers Gary and Rick  Radymski held an 'anniversary weekend' replete wilh lOcenl  glasses of beer and 25 cent hoi dogs, "to bring back the  nostalgia of the era."  White Tower Society's work nears completion  Gibsons hears report of newest park  by George Smilh  Employees of the Canadian  Paperworkcrs' Union (CPU)  have called a slrike vote for  Tuesday, July 5.  Vern Rottluff, president of  Port Mellons' Local 1119 told  the Coast News Saturday that  the main issue on the table is  pensions, with inflation-commensurate wage increases a distant second.  Negotiations between the  union and the Pulp and Paper  Industrial Relations Bureau, the  bargaining agent for management, began April 18, and  broke off 85 meelings later, last  week.  "We started out dealing on a  two-year agreement," said  Rottluff. "Then they (manage  ment) asked for concessions and  when we said 'no', they pushed  for a longer term agreement.  "They weren't prepared to  meel us halfway."  The union issued a 10-day  termination of contract notice  July 1.  Rottluff, who calls the move  "a bargaining tool to get  negotiations going again," expects a "good, solid strike  vote" by the 13,000 pulp-  workers province-wide. In the  event that does happen, a picket  line could be set up as early as  July 15.  "We're trying to negotiate a  settlement, not a strike," he  said.  Results of the vote will be  released on July 11 at 5 pm,  David Cudlipp, president of  the White Tower Medieval  Society updated Gibsons Council last Tuesday on what his  group is already calling 'White  Tower Park'.  Situated on 10 acres of wet  town bush property behind the  swimming pool off Highway  101, the park area also contains  the headwaters of Charnian  Creek. The Society now has the  support of the Municipal Works  Department and the West Howe  Sound Recreation Advisory  Commission to transform the  area into a medieval park and  tournament field, a wildlife  reserve and flood control zone.  Cudlipp described short and  long run plans for council.  Diagrams projected onto the  Chamber walls detailed construction of a scries of berms  and water courses, floodgates  and a new small lake, complete  with island, two storey lower  and moat. Plans call for a central tournament field and a  system of paths and shooting  lanes for field archery and field  crossbow shooting, for beggars  banquets, medieval combats  and so on.  Recent progress on phase one  has included the digging of  drainage ditches by the Works  Department to dry out the upper area and to provide year-  round water control. Bush  clearing has continued on the  tournament field and on the  projected route for Beggar's  Way path. Current activities  compliment over two years of  Sunday sweat equity already  contributed by Society  members.  Later in the week Society  Firsl Vice-President Robin  Allen and his wife Wendy and  Second Vice-President Mel Bar-  natl gave this writer an enthusiastic lour of iheir project.  The group was obviously  pleased wilh the gradual drying  effeel which ihe new ditch work  is causing on the upper area.  They showed off the tournament field on which a substantial pile of debris and wood  awaits burning by the Works  Department. A large large! has  now been creeled al one end of  the field and is moslly composed of thick conveyor bell rubber  donaled by a local company.  Allen,  a  successful  crossbow  maker, stated thai Ihe largel  "will stop a bolt from a 500  pound crossbow al 10 yards...a  boll which would go Ihrough  the side of a car."  The trio broughl their Society's dream lo life as we  wandered ihrough the changing  area. They described ihe distinctive medieval field archery and  crossbow lechnique which  utilizes paper animal targets and  requires mobile archers to move  around a complex series of  showing lanes and targets. A  sland of trees was pointed out  which will house a one or Iwo  storey shooting platform.  Medieval   costumes,   instru  ments, jousts and beggars feasts  are all part of the dream. They  hope lo creale a facility which :  will one day entice international.:  competitions to Gibsons.  With luck ihey will be able to  hosl a shoot and pig roasl in  August for visiting Japanese  students.  Quick lo point oul the safety  features built into iheir project  design, ihe group also said lhal  only Sundays will be reserved  for Sociely activities. The  general public will be free lo use  the facility al all oilier limes.  New members are encouraged  lo join.  While Tower Society members, Robin & Wendy Allen and Mel Barnett (right) poinl oul the new heavy  duty Target Backstop made of conveyor belt rubber for their Field Archery and Field Crossbow Park.  ���George Smith pholo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, July 4,1988  Comment  Looking back  at the dry grad  Looking back at the dry grad, it would appear to be  unanimously agreed that the affair was a great success.  Parents, teachers and students agree on this and some  students who at first did not welcome the idea became converts as a very pleasant night wore on.  The reason, of course, is the dedicated group of parents  who worked diligently to make it a success and there is a  lesson for us in this.  It is not infrequent that we have heard the youth of today being roundly criticized for this or for that alarming  tendency. Usually the cause for complaint arises because  young people have been left too often entirely to their own  devices.  There has been a tendency for the middle-aged and the  elderly to look to the provision of their own pleasures  while nothing is done for those among us who have not  reached the age of majority.  The parents who organized the dry grad have shown  that when adults take a loving and constructive role in  helping the young in their undertakings the results can be  very positive indeed.  The graduates themselves will have pleasant memories  that will last a lifetime. In other years there were many  who had hazy recollections of things done in an alcoholic  blur, or those who were sober had less than pleasanl  memories of those who were not.  And, of course, there were tragically a few who had no  memories at all, having fallen victim of the ever present  hazards of the road and its use when the faculties are impaired.  The entire community owes these graduates and the  adults who worked with them a hearty vote of thanks for  the constructive example they have provided for other  grads and other events which lie ahead.  Smith resignation  Former Attorney General Brian Smith is an honourable  man and we accept that he resigned from Cabinet as an act  of honour.  In doing so in the legislature, however, without warning  the premier and in laying the blame squarely on the  premier he was also making a highly political statement.  It cannot be doubted that the schism in the Social Credit  ranks over their controversial leader is deep and deepening.  .from the filet of the COAST NEWS  Hi  5 YEARS AGO  The historic light-ship ClaiteAnne is ordered away from  Gibsons Wharf.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year 135; 6 months 120; Foreign; 1 year 140  In a nutshell  Memories of the Azores  by S. Nuller  A place in many ways quite  like the Sunshine Coast is, give  or take a few hundred miles, out  Ihere in the middle of the North  Atlantic. The Gulf Stream  wraps it round, which is why it  is so green, covered wilh flowers  and greal stands of pine and  cedar, ll is also mountainous, a  commercial fishing place, and  sporl fishermen from distanl  parts catch world prize tuna off  its shores.  Ils name, Azores, means  hawk in Portugese and the  masthead sighting of a hawk  circling in mid-Atlantic was the  first clue to the islands being  Ihere. The alert man up the  mast was Portugese, sailing for  Henry Ihe navigator who colonized the islands with escapees  from the Spanish Inquisition,  roughly two thirds Portugese  and one third Netherlander.  So there they've been for 500  years, sometimes chivvied by  pirates, mostly Moroccan, but  not made war upon, not  pressured by other would-be immigrants, not warning lo leave  Ihemselves.  The islands, there are nine of  them stretching over 500 miles  of ocean, are volcanic. There  were no people of course and no  four-footed beasts, just birds in  the air and fish in the waters.  Henry supplied them with a  number of ships loaded with  cattle, some of these were shipwrecked, and one of the larger  islands still has wild cattle in its  central valleys.  Up in smoke  The only time a trouble with  Lisbon caused the Portugese to  send a little army, the Azoreans  rounded up their cattle,  stampeded them through the  streets of Angros dos Horismo,  and drove the soldiers off the  dock and into the sea.  The only other time a seeming army lined up on that dock  it was the R.A.F. regiment in  WW II. They almost snuck into  the harbour, no guns were even  brandished so they say and they  simply moved quietly off into  the interior. There they laid a  metal strip runway, and we were  the first plane in from the west,  there to do a- recce. They'd  found a Hat enough place but  the runway ended to the west  with a 60 foot hill.  The runway wasn't long  enough for us to pack on  enough gas to buck the winter  winds to Newfoundland and  still get safely over the hill. We  came back the southern route,  Casablanca, Tindouf, Dakar,  Natal, Belem, Puerto Rico,  New York and home - a bonus  trip indeed for that winter of  ���43.  I got back in '72 with introductions and reservations,  and with two lively ladies  (another story and far too  long). The Azoreans, conservative as ever, decided that this  was all quite jolly.  The place seems first profoundly Catholic, and then you  find a lot that it is strangely  pagan. The people are cheery,  hardy and active, working  without drudgery it seems.  A man I met was professor of  history, sub-editor of the paper,  inspector of schools and in his  off time taught speed writing at  the business college. Service in  hotels etc. is good and earnest,  but no way deferential. Waiters  wear white gloves but stomp  about in great boots.  The place is haunted and  that's not just me. Two international ghost hunters were there  and said it was the high point in  their world-go-around.  But it's all a gorgeous great  garden, and they know how to  garden and they know how to  cook. They have three crops a  year, make good cheeses,  wines, and two brandies (watch  it with the 'Fisherman's  brandy').  We gave a party when we left  and a tiny local household cook  produced a dressed salmon that  would have done proud at the  Savoy.  After the party, in the morning at the airport my ladies were  a bit frail and sometimes needed  propping. The professor had  brought four of his daughters to  see us off.  It was very hot and the concourse was jammed with people, leaving and seeing others  off on this aircraft to Toronto.  Many, most it seemed, were  loudly weeping and sobbing.  There is a population explosion in the Atlantic paradise', 'a  lot must leave, and the ones  behind think they will never see  them again. It was probably the  most saddening departure I  remember.  A Song For July |  On shore even the crows hide from the heat, ^ra��*  while sails droop on a still sea of flat white. R  Canoes slip over bright lakes, leaving neat $  wavelets that startle fish and twist the light. ��  Ripples catch golden bubbles rising from ��  water plants blooming in tepid blue baths. Ji.  Slowed down bees glide through fragrant air and hum,   "*%?  full of mauve nectar, down thistle rimmed paths.  Long evening pales gently while crickets sing.  Soft laughter rolls over long bronzed grasses.  The moon rises above lovers who cling  and tumble joyfully as the night passes.  Dawn breezes fill sails and a pink sky gleams  over bird song, love, and new summer dreams.  "3JT a a j. j.   Renee Brown i  The case against the weed  by Isabel Ralph  I am writing aboul a  substance which claims more  addicts than heroin or cocaine  but is just as damaging. It is  nicotine, a product of the tobacco planl. Sir Waller Raleigh in  Queen Elizabeth's time,  broughl il from America and  it's use has spread throughout  the world.  First it was smoked in pipes,  then in cigarettes, but only by  men. My father condemned il  because il could cause fires, also  it cost money. We children,  eager to taste the forbidden  fruit, made cigarettes by rolling  corn hair or tea leaves in  newspaper.  In our little country school,  my brother Bill and his chums  during the lunch hour used to  meet at their smoking place in  the bush. One dry spring day,  because they were short of matches, they lit a fire and used the  sticks to light their cigarettes.  But the fire spread in the leaf  mould and began to blaze.  The alarm went out and all 20  of us who had not gone home  for lunch, grabbed our book  bags, the doormats from the  school steps, the saddle blanket  of the girl who rode horseback  to school, and we beat the fire  out. Somebody brought a pail  of water from the spring and  doused it, all in time for the one  o'clock bell. Dear old Mrs  Ashmore our teacher, had sat  absorbed in marking our work,  oblivious of whal we had been  doing.  Nicotine cigarettes, however,  are not so innocent as ours were  and the mass of evidence  againsl them is beginning to accumulate.  It is true that nicotine is a  powerful stimulant for the  brain, it improves short-term  memory and concentration. It is  understandable that newspaper  reporters often rely upon it.  There is abundant evidence  now that persistent use of  tobacco can give you lung  cancer, emphysema, or heart  disease and can shorten your  life.  One of our most gifted Cana-  dian writers, Margaret  Laurence, died when only 60  years old, of lung cancer  because she was a heavy  smoker.  A man in the news recently is  suing a tobacco company for  damages for the loss of one of  his legs. He suffers from a rare  disease which constricts the circulation of blood to his limbs  and smoking aggravated the  malady.  Many years ago I used to  smoke simply because everybody else did and there was no  knowledge Ihen of the danger.  When my son John was 17, he  came to spend a weekend wilh  me. 1 had jusi opened a large  pack and lit a cigarette.  "You put that down," he  barked, "it can give you  cancer." "But I don't inhale," I  said. "It can give you cancer of  the lip," he said. I butted the  cigarette out and never touched  another. After a few weeks I put  the packet in the fireplace and  lit it.  My sister Mollie used to  smoke until her doctor ordered  her to quit, she reduced the daily number slowly until she has  overcome the habit.  She can smell the flowers  again and climb hills without  being winded. But her daughter,  Mitzie and her son Michael, still  smoke. When they visit me, I  say, "I'm telling you to quit  because I love you." They smile  because dear old Aunty loves  them but they still smoke.  Medical science has now proven that people can be affected  by second-hand smoke and in.  restaurants and buses, we have  non-smoking areas. A campaign is in progress to ban  smoking in all work places.  In the U.S. great strides have  been made lo discourage cigarette addiction. Slrict laws  have been passed to limit smoking in offices, stores and public  transportation. Eleven states  have strong restrictions, 21 have  limited anti-smoking laws, and  only nine have no curbs on puffers.  Our Canadian government  has not done so well. Bill C-51 Is  an attempt to regulate the  seductive advertising of the  tobacco companies, showing  pretty girls and handsome men  in expensive clothes, smoking.  At the same time our government collects $2 billion a year iji  taxes on tobacco products  which means more than half ojf  the cost of each pack of cigaretj  tes you buy. Smokers pay heavily for their habit. ;  And whenever my niece Mitzie and her brother Mike visft  me, I shall keep on gently ai  them about the expensive folly  of smoking and tell them they  should give the money to the  Food Bank instead. Coast News, July 4,1988    ���  hi hi. __���_^^^^. wwm;i ngna, JUiyH,   I 300  Letters to the Editor   ^ The l.o���s share  School tax increase astronomical  Editor:  For the second year in a row  after receiving my Grantham's  Landing property tax notice, I  am incredulous at the increase  in school tax. I thought that  your readers might be interested  in some comparative figures  that would make them question  intensively the district's Board  of School Trustees as to the exorbitant increase in school  taxes.  I own property in Vancouver  and Granthams Landing. For  my calculations 1 have chosen  1985 as a starting year because  that was (I think) when the provincial government began to  reduce their share and put the  school tax burden on the little  guy-  Vancouver percent  increase  -1985 to 1986, 5 percent; 1986 to  1987, 3.5 percent; 1987 to 1988,  6 percent; total 1985 to 1988, 16  percent.  Granthams Landing percent  increase - 1985 to 1986, 4 percent; 1986 to 1987, 53 percent;  1987 to 1988, 16 percent; total  1985 to 1988, 86 percent.  The general public tends to  believe that increased costs are  due to the raises in teachers'  salaries. Because I am a Vancouver teacher, I can see that  the astronomical increases by  this district cannot be blamed  Seniors pinched by cutbacks  I Editor:  I     Last year's budget reduced  I the   average   single   senior's  I disposable   income   by   an  I estimated $500. I don't need to  I point this out to our seniors,  ��� they are already  feeling  the  pinch. But I do want to em-  I phasize to others the kinds of  I increased costs and cutbacks to  I services that VanderZalm and  S his government are handing out  I to our seniors. For example: the  ' VanderZalm government raised  ; M.S.P. premiums an average of  I 40 percent with the rate for  seniors going to $29 from $20  for singles while the monthy  premium for couples went from  $37 to $52. The income level for  partial premium subsidies used  to be $3500 a year and is now  $6500 a year.  They introduced user fees of  $5 a visit for such heallh care  services as physiotherapy,  podiatry and chiropractic  treatments. Services needed  most by seniors. Services that  enable them lo lead more comfortable and independent lives.  In the long term, without these  services, many of them would  need far more expensive treatment and care.  In 1987 the Socreds began  making the seniors pay for 75  percent of the dispensing fee for  prescription drugs, up to $125 a  year and ambulance fees increased from $28 to $35 for the  first 40 km.  The biggest blow came to  residents of long term care  facilities. The rates were raised  from 75 to 85 percent of their  combined Old Age Security and  Guaranteed Income Supplement.  The lisl goes on with increases  to properly tax and personal income tax. No such increases  were levied to the wealthy of  this province.  New Democrat M.L.A.s have  continually asked the Socred  Government to revoke legislation that has eaten into the  disposable income of seniors.  These demands have been to no  avail.  We as caring British Columbians cannot sit back and see  this government continue lo  erode the quality of life that our  seniors have earned and should  be assured of enjoying  throughout their retirement.  Brenda DeGraag, President  Mackenzie N.D.P. Assoc.  A celebration to remember  ' Editor:  Last Friday, June 24, 1988,  the Sechelt Indian Government  District was brought into being.

We had the privilege of watching one such group in action  during the Gibsons Minor  Baseball tournament June 25  and 26.

They  often lose track of books which  seem to get lost at home instead  of making their way back to the  library shelves. Usually these  books get filed among the  reader's own books or get stuck  in a place which is not often  checked (like under the bed or  on an upper shelf.)  In any case, they are asking  library members to take a look  in remote corners to see if you  have any books which are  marked Roberts Creek Library  and which might have been  overlooked by you or family  members. During this month,  the librarians will welcome back  all books without a late fee or  even a cross look to make you  feel guilty.

Why no  fireworks?  Why were there no Canada  Day fireworks in Gibsons this  year? Alderman Lilian Kunstler  posed the question at the Council meeting this week and was  answered by Alderman John  Reynolds.  Apparently the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce usually  receives a grant of $1000 from  the Federal government to put  on the annual display. In the  past the Chamber has purchased the firecrackers while  awaiting the arrival of the  federal money. However this  year, when no confirmation  came from the feds, the  Chamber felt itself to be in no  financial position to risk paying  the tab itself.

Then I  broke a piece of chalk in half, a  symbolic gesture of breaking  away into retirement." So said  Weldon Lewis Reid of his last  day as principal and teacher in  our schools.  Sam as he is known to  everyone has just completed 32  years of schoolteaching, and 22  of those years have been in this  Sunshine Coast school district.  He started off here in the  school in Port Mellon in 1961  and after Ihree years there was  assigned to Roberts Creek but  was re-assigned to Sechelt  Elementary. "I was reluctant at  firsl lo become a principal,"  Sam said, "but Anne Burns, the  secretary-treasurer, persuaded  me. I have never really regretted  it."  During his tenure in Sechelt,  Sam was instrumental in arranging the smooth entry of the  Native pupils in lo the public  school system, and his  understanding and concern for  iheir well-being was appreciated  by everyone.  For the past two years, Sam  Reid has been principal of  Cedar Grove and before that  for ten years Principal in Gibsons Elementary.  Sam Reid grew up in Nelson,  where he was born in 1930, the  youngest of a family of six.  "My mother had to raise us by  herself on a welfare assistance  of $25 a month, but she refused  to let us go to live with relatives,  and we grew up with strong  family ties."  Sam worked at many jobs  before he entered Normal  school, "the last class in that  Vancouver institution".  Three years with  Woodward's stores "where I  thoroughly enjoyed dealing  with customers", logging, a  year as shipwright's helper, and  two with Fisheries Research.  "Then Esther and 1 took a  ' long view of what we should do; f  and teaching seemed to be the  career to follow."  Sam and Esther went to  Stuart Island in Bute Inlet for a  year in 1955. "I taught in the  one-room school and we coped  with kerosene lamps in our  house." Then to a school in a  logging camp at Beaver Cove  for three years. Next, to Abbotsford for a year, "but we  missed being near the ocean."  During the earlier years of  teaching Sam earned a Bachelor  of Arls and Science in summer  schools at UBC.  "No, I haven't special  recollections to tell about  school. Despite a few trying  times the school years have left  me with happy memories of the  children and of my colleagues."  And in retirement? "Well,  I'm embarrassed to say I still  have my boat to finish. And  Esther and I look forward to  travel such as a leisurely trip to  eastern Canada again, and  perhaps a house exchange with  someone in Britain for several  months."  The building of his sailboat is  a dream Sam has had since his  young days in the shipyard. Roy  Mills says of Sam's sailboat,  "Some very fine craftsmanship  there, and whether he sails in it  or not, Sam has produced an  outstanding craft."  And how did 'Sam' become  your nickname?  "Well years  A lovely farewell dinner was  enjoyed by Sears employees  and spouses at Andy's  Restaurant on June 24. Retiring from Sears in Gibsons are  Diana Bracket!, manager (left),  and Effie Norris, longtime  employee. Special guests for  the evening, Dave and Marj  Parry of Powell River, former  Sears agents, roasted Diana  and Effie with stories of Sean  days gone by. Mr. Sam Flada-  ger, who opened Ihe first Sears  outlet in Gibsons, senl  greetings and congratulations.  Diana and Effie's smiling faces  will be missed by customers  and staff alike.  ago Esther and 1 picked special  names for each other and I  became Sam, short for Sampson, and she became Slim.  She'll tell you why I picked that  one."  MOVING ON  Among the scholarship and  bursary winners of Elphin-  stone's grads of last year are  many who have gone on to further university and college  studies.  Marlene Lowden has been  working in Vancouver this past  year, some of it as a volunteer in  TV in Abbotsford and with  Western Cable. She has now  been accepted to begin BCIT's  Television Broadcasting course  in September - a two year program.  Peter Beyser has completed  first year arls in UBC and hopes  to enter the commerce program.  Tammy McQueen spent this  pasl year in Calgary at the Baptist Leadership Training school.  This summer she is employed as  a counsellor at Keats Camp,  and will look for employment in  Vancouver this fall. She intends  to take a course at a junior college this coming year in sign  language with the view of working with hearing impaired  youngsters.  MARY STEELE LEAVES  After living in Gibsons for  the past 20 years, Miss Mary  Steele has just gone to live in  Brentwod Lodge in Burnaby.  "I came to live in Gibsons on  Bay Road when I retired from  my schoolteaching career in  Burnaby in 1968," said Mary  Steele, "but I had visited the  area regularly since 1923 to see  my sister, who is Mrs. Elizabeth  Derby of Sechelt."  Born in Milngadie, in  Scotland, Mary Steele came to  Canada when she was two years  old. She has been a popular  member of Harmony Hall, and  a welcome guest at the monthly  109er's luncheons at the Gibsons Legion where she often  sang grace before the meal.  "Now in my new home I will  still be able to look out my window and see Mt. Elphinstone  just as I could in Gibsons."  ^WEBBER PHOTON  Treasure the moment in china  We'll mount your favourite photo  on a china plate  ��� photoliniihlng       ��� batteries, ate.  ��� photocopying       ��� keys cul  ��� films, flashes ft frames  ��� passport photos   ��� Konica cameras  ��� agenl for Loomli Courier  886-2947  275 Gower Pt.

How wrong can people 1]  be! Actually, I'm a cerebral gardener. In my 'mind's eye' my garden is j;'  a luscious verdant paradise.  Today I rushed out into the so-called paradise wondering where my ' '���',  raspberry canes were. I eventually unveiled them from the grasses that  had been shrouding them and zipped inlo my kitchen to make goodies. *��  RASPBERRY SYRUP  1. Place raspberries in a bowl. Crush wilh a potato masher or wooden  spoon. Cover wilh wax paper or a cloth and leave at room  temperature for 24 hours.  2. Squeeze through a jelly bag or muslin.  3. To every cup ol juice add a cup ol sugar.  4. Heat and stir unlil all Ihe sugar is dissolved.  5. I pour the syrup into bottles and freeze. Don'l fill fuller lhan 1 'A inches from the top. Alternatively, syrup can be processed in your  canner.  6. Use with pancakes or ice cream or mixed with a little soda water foi  a fizzy drink - use a large glass!  TWO-MINUTE RASPBERRY JAM  4% lbs. raspberries  6 lbs. sugar  1. Place raspberries in jam-making pan. Bring to the boil and boil lor  10 minutes.  2. Add the sugar. Stir till dissolved. Bring quickly to the boil and boil  like mad for 2 minutes.  3. Pour into prepared jars and seal.  This works perfectly well tor frozen berries. Just lei them thaw out  completely before starting the process. This jam is not one of those  super-stiff 'stand the knife up in it' types. It's slightly 'unfirm' and  tastes great.  I always feels It's one of Mother Nature's blessings that there are  plants out there that tolerates gardeners like yours truly!

Redrooffs traffic poses a hazard  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Yours truly has been doing  some complaining to the  highways department regarding  the high speed drivers zooming  past Coopers Green Park.  To date there are still no signs  up indicating that there are  many children playing around  there and demanding that traffic slow down to what is normally the limit for schools and  parks - somewhere around 15  miles per hour. There is a blind  hill and a sharp corner at either  end of the park with a constant  shrieking of brakes of cars slowing down from around 60 mph  in order to make the corner.  It seems that we are the only  ones who have complained  about this, but then we are the  only house on the highway between the points mentioned. But  it's your kids whose lives could  be in danger if something isn't  done soon.  The Summer Fun program  for kids from three to ten will  start this week, July 4 to August  18.

There is currently no consistent colour-coding scheme on  Sunshine Coast intersections.  The junction of Trail and  Cowrie in Sechelt, for instance,  sports a southeast corner curb  painted solid yellow, and a northwest corner with an unpainted  ramp. In addition, some of the  curb ramps are too steep for the  battery-powered vehicles'  engines to negotiate safely.  Further problems arise when  wheelchairs encounter the  stretch of Cowrie Street north  of Trail. Northbound travellers  on the east side of the street find  their way blocked by power  poles growing out of the middle  of the sidewalk. There is no  room for passage between the  pole and the precipitous  shoulder on the right, or the six-  inch curb on the left. There is  no sidewalk on the west side of  the street.  To avoid surprises, Hebert  now takes her daily constitutional to the sea via Wharf  Road and Dolphin Street.  "People ask why I always  follow the same route,"she says  "I tell them it's the safest way  I've found."

Congratulations to all and to  Maxwell enters ring  Haig Maxwell has thrown his  hat inlo the Gibsons political  ring. At last Tuesday's Council  meeling he let il be known that  he will run as an aldermanic  candidate in the fall municipal  election.  Mr. Maxwell is the Pharmacist and pari owner of ihe  Dockside Pharmacy in lower  Gibsons. He also shares ownership in Ihe building next door  which houses the Bank of Montreal and he is a Director of the  Chamber of Commerce. Since  1970 he has been a resident of  the area and currently lives in  Langdale with Maurene, his  wife of 19 years. Although  formerly active in the Kinsmen  he has been devoting his time  "seven days a week" to his new  store over the past three years.  Now at Ihe ripe age of 42, having recently hired a second  pharmacist, Mr. Maxwell feels  thai he is finally in the position  lo devole lime lo town affairs.  When questioned later about  his reasons for running, he said,  "It has been in the back of my  mind for a couple of years. We  now give the town several thousand dollars of taxes each year.  1 should become involved in the  decision-making process."

He suggested the implementation of annual Yearly  Plans for Council, the creation  of a by-law review committee,  and a business licence review  committee including consumers  and representatives from the  Chamber of Commerce.  More philosophically, Maxwell continued "Gibsons must  find its niche, its beauty, and go  with it."  For him, the obvious key to  long term prosperity in Gibsons  lies in the waterfront and council should key on ways to promote and develop this special  asset.  Mr. Maxwell will continue to  attend Council meetings and to  invite input to his campaign  from Gibsonites in preparation  for the fall elections.  Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  The cooler cloudy days and  the rain we are having spoils  some of the more delicate  flowers and shortens their  lifespan. Remove faded blooms  (deadhead). More blooms will  follow. Check the soil moisture  of your growing area.  In my own I found it to be  very dry six inches below the  surface, in a spot mulched only  with grasses.  With the absence of bees we  can help nature by pollinating  tomatoes by carefully brushing  each flower with a camel hair  brush or feathers. This procedure takes place around midday which is 1 pm DS time  when flowers are open, when all  moisture is off the (lowers and  in the early part of summer.  Later insects and bees do lhal  work and il takes just a few  minutes.  Try to renew your garden  with mid-summer plantings of  vegetables now. Rotate crops by  mixing things tip, using the row  thai grew roots lo plain leafy  plants, and vice versa.  Rotating helps prevent depletion of soil and keeps down insect and disease infestations.  Choose a cloudy day or cool  evening to transplant. Some  wilting is normal but pouring  water in each holei shading the  plants for a day or two, will  minimize the shock to the plant.  Mid-summer planting is  worth planning for. With a little  more digging and seed sowing,  the best is yet to come with  another six months of fresh  food from your garden.  the (.impels, ihe winning house  leam.

Coast News, July 4,1988  Jakes issue with Victoria  Gibsons speaks up for seniors  : Gibsons Council wants the  provincial government to give a  Break to married seniors. Al the  June 28 Committee-of-the-  IrVhole meeling, Council decided to wrile to Peter Dueck, the  Minister of Health about Ihe recent cost increases in Continuing Care facilities.  On the one hand, Council has  laken the position lhal Ihe increase lo single seniors receiving  maximum benefits is probably  not excessive. However, ihey  feel lhal the effect on married  seniors, when one must be cared  for beyond the ability of the  partner is a differenl mailer  which does create hardship.  Mayor Slrom has now writ-  len Dueck offering the following solution to Ihe problem  "...lhal when married seniors  musi be separated because one  is institutionalized, they be  treated as two singles ralher  lhan a married couple. That is,  each one should receive Old Age  Security for a single senior, and  each should receive a  Guaranteed Income Supplement, if it is warranted. In that  way the partner who is in a care  facility is properly cared for  while the partner who remains  in the family home has a  separate income upon which to  maintain himself/herself."  Mr. Dueck's answer may  prove interesting.  Elvina Morrison, an  employee of the Town of Gibsons has proposed a use for Ihe  languishing concrete Roller-  skating Pad at Brothers Park.  On Tuesday Council discussed her written submission to  lurn Ihe unused town asset into  a trampoline and remote car  track facility. Her plan calls for  ihree trampoline beds and ihe  car track to be set up within a  fenced-in area which could be  properly supervised. The project would open almost immediately and run each  Wednesday to Sunday through  to mid or lale October. Morrison asked Council to lease the  concrete pad to her for a  nominal fee.  Clerk-Administrator, Lorraine Goddard noted that the  principle intention was to make  some use of the facility. She  noted lhal "ll would be a commercial venture but it would  primarily be intended to get a  recreation activity going."  Council was interesled in the  project but voiced concerns  aboul insurance, Ihe commercial versus public aspects of ihe  projeel and the lack of a  business plan.  Alderman John Reynolds  was delegated lo invesligate the  potential with Ms Morrison and  to help her prepare a proper  reporl for nexl week's council  meeling.  In further Council business  the town Fax machine was  declared off limits to the public  except in cases of emergency.  Council established the new  policy afler Clerk-  Administrator Lorraine Goddard described problems with  the underpriced, lime consuming and sometimes abused service.

The Sunshine  Second Section  Bill Chinnick al the Granthams Landing pilings where repair work  stopped while a mother Merganser finished hatching her brood of  chicks (see story this page). ��� George Smith photo  Duck rules dock  A clever mama duck has held  up a volunteer public works  project in Grantham's Landing.  About two weeks back Bill  Chinnick, Jack Gallagher and  other longtime residents started  to repair the Dolphin, an aging  cluster of pilings which anchors  the outer end of the community  float dock.  They found a surprise waiting  for them when they inspected  the top of the Dolphin. A  female Common I Merganser  had ingeniously secreted a nest  and nine eggs inside one of the  pilings high above the water  line.  Ralher   than   complete   their  repairs, the crew quickly left  their temporary scaffolding until mama emerged late last  week. According to Mr.  Chinnick, "She came out, gave  a shrill little call, then all came  out, all nine, one after the  other. They all looked like  peanuts; they all looked the  same. I haven't seen them  since." However, he believes  that they have taken up  residence under a nearby float.  Mrs. Pat Gallagher confessed  that she and her friends were  thrilled at the successful hatching. One can only conclude  that our astute mother duck has  chosen her human neighbourhood wisely.  Teachers retire  Last Wednesday, June 22, the Board of School Trustees  held a retirement tea in honour of three senior staff - Mr. Art  Holmes, Mr. Sam Reid, and Mr. Bob Wetmore, also two  teachers, Mr. Mike Bujan and Mrs. Evelyn Wetmore. Mike  has taught in this school district for 26 years at Elphinstone  Secondary, and Evelyn has taught in this district since October 1976.  Two maintenance staff have also retired. Mr. Jack Huget  has been a custodian for Ave years and Mr. Jean Caron has  been the maintenance foreman for seven years.

At last Tuesday's meeting of  the school board, David Short,  Director of the District  Resource Centre, outlined for  the board the way this money  will be spent in the District.  Thirty-six computers will be  purchased at a cost of $72,000.  The remaining funds will be  divided among software purchases and in-service training  for teachers.  Short reported to the board  that the current plan is to reallocate the computers presently  in the district, so that, with the  newly purchased computers, all  schools will have a lab con  sisting of 15 to 17 computers.  Short stressed that although  the Ministry is calling for the  focus of business education in  computer education, this  District will continue to use  compulers in all aspects of  education as it has done in the  past.  in other school board news,  Trustee Shawn Cardinall  reported to the board on the  progress being made in dealing  with students at risk in the  district. The problem is seen as  one thai concerns the whole  community, and the present  plan is to co-ordinate the activities of the school district with  the Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society and the  Ministry of Social Services and  Housing. The need for a coordinator was stressed and it  was hoped that funding would  be available for this position.  In response to a letter from  Gwen Struthers, Co-ordinator  of Sexual Abuse Issues, the  board approved in principle the  plan to implement Personal  Safety Programs in elementary  schools. Struthers stressed that  it was important that all  students possess personal safety  skills appropriate to their age,  and that it was expected that  teachers would make this  evaluation.  Secretary Treasurer Tim  Anderson reported that the  financial situation of the  District had improved and  should be at the break even  point by the end of the school  year. Anderson also told the  board that there would be major upgrading of buildings and  grounds during the summer.

U.  Coast News, July 4,1988  LEISURE  ._,_,.���__,,  Relic plays George Gibson with a sense of humour in the filming of  list week's Beachcomber episode (see story below).-vern Elliott photo  Beachcomber Beat  Of Gibsons history  The hoopla in lower Gibsons  last week may have had some  residents wondering if Canada  Day had been moved ahead to  escape a grim weather forecast.  In fact, the celebrations were  part of the latest Beachcomber  espisode's First Annual Founding Day Festival commemorating George Gibson,  who dropped anchor here 102  years ago.  The Beachcomber bunch  even re-enacted the historic moment when George Gibson's  home-built sailboat, The  Swamp Angel, landed on the  Gibsons shore. Well, almost.  This time the boat sprung a leak  and sank in the harbour. To  shoot this scene, the production  crew borrowed part of the  government wharf for its equipment; and, as always, the locals  were understanding.  "Most of the fishermen were  wonderfully co-operative," says  Production Manager Jan Dur-  bin. "We really appreciate it."  When the shooting moved on  to the land, the word on the lips  of the cast became rhubarb.  They munched it. They hurled it  at a target ten metres away with  great brio. They roamed about  the Reach porch with stalks of it  pinned to their chests. (A  takeoff on the Welsh tradition  of sporting leeks on their lapels  for festivals, explained Durbin).  "Rhubarb appears to be the  official vegetable of Gibsons,"  observed special effects man  John Sleep.  The reason, of course, is that  George Gibson was somewhat  of a rhubarb magnate. His  gigantic rhubarb won prizes at  the Chicago World's Fair.

THIS WEEKEND'S. ENTERTAINMENT  (Thursday to Saturday)  Piiyes From A Lito-Lotj  The Dark  Companions  by Peter Trower  "Hello, Daddy," shouted  Jeremy, running up in excitement. "I'm so glad you're  home!"  "My little man," said Hugh,  mustering another smile and  tousling his son's hair. But his  manner was distracted. Jeremy  could sense that his father was  not himself and restrained an  impulse to chatter and clamour  for attention.  Most of Hugh's leave on this  occasion, amounted to a period  of convalescence. He seemed  disinclined to talk and spent  much of his time reading or  working desultorily on an oil  painting of the house, begun on  his previous visit.  As a rule, Jeremy loved to  watch his father paint - sqeezing  the bright pigments from the  tubes, mixing them on the  pallette, applying them to the  canvas with deft, sure brush  strokes. But he didn't like this  new picture at all. The painted  house looked, Jeremy groped  for the newly-acquired word,  menacing. It glowered from the  canvas like a great misshapen  head among the painted trees.  The painting was emblematic  of Hugh's generally depressed  mood. Like most athletic men,  he did not suffer illness gladly.  His doctor subjected him to a  thorough examination but  could find nothing organically  wrong, Hugh's condition appeared to be one that only time  and rest could cure. And, as the  days passed, he did become  somewhat better.  Hugh had been home for little more than a week when the  call came from the aircraft company. Jeremy could tell from his  expression and his terse  responses, that he was not  receiving news that pleased him.  "All right. All right. I'll be  there," he snapped finally and  slammed down the receiver.  "What is it, dear?" asked  Eleanor in a concerned voice.  "It's Perse, the other test  pilot," said Hugh exasperated-  ly. "He was supposed to  demonstrate a new plane called  the Fairey Fantome in Belgium  on Monday. But the damn fool  got in a car accident and broke  his leg. Now they want me to  take the Fantome up!"  "Oh no! They can't make  you do it! You're not well, darling. Didn't you tell them that?"  "Of course I did," said  Hugh, resignedly, "but they  just don't have anyone else  who's familiar with the plane.  All the Belgian royalty will be  there and there's a big contract  at stake. They say I can have a  long leave of absence if I do the  test, but it might be worth my  job if I don't. I'll have to go.  There's just no way around it.  But I'll be back as soon as it's  over. I promise you that,  sweetheart."  "Those damned planes!"  Eleanor said angrily. "They  really do run our lives!" But  there was no talking Hugh out  of it. And at least they would  have him back again for a long  spell, as soon as the test was  completed.  Hugh made arrangements to  leave for Belgium the following  day. That night he shook  Eleanor awake in the small  hours. "Did you hear it?" he  whispered urgently.  "Hear what, darling?" muttered Eleanor sleepily,  "The screaming! The terrible  screaming! I've never heard  anything like it in my life!"  The door opened and Jeremy  came in, rubbing his eyes.  "What was that awful noise?"  he asked. "Mummy. Daddy.  I'm scared."  "You heard it too, Jemmy?"  said Hugh. "Then I couldn't  have been imagining it. It must  have been a night bird of some  kind."  "That's all it could have  been," decided Eleanor practically. "You climb in with us,  Jemmy dear. Everything's going to be all right."  Beside his parents in the big  warm bed, Jeremy felt safe  again.  Hugh left on schedule in the  morning. "I'll only be gone for  a little while," he promised  Jeremy. "Then we'll have some  really good times together, just  you and Mummy and me."  Jeremy hugged his father and  felt good. Hugh, handsome in a  new blue pinstripe suit, seemed  almost   his   old   self  again.  Jeremy ran off happily to play  in the garden. Things were going to be all right after all.  That afternoon, a white robin  got into Hugh's study through  an open window and perched  on one of his most prized  possessions, the bust of a  Belgian miner given to him by a  sculptor friend. Winnie came  upon it and shooed the robin  out angrily. "Birds in the house  are a very bad omen," she  declared with a worried look.  "Winnie, please don't start  that nonsense up again," begged Eleanor. "Birds often come  in houses. It doesn't mean a  thing. Just more old wives'  tales."  Jeremy overheard this remark too but didn't pay too  much attention. After supper,  he went up to his room to get a  fairy-tale book. He opened the  door and stopped short. The  black dog was lying on his bed,  staring at him with those  mournful yellow eyes. Jeremy  was not afraid. He sensed that  the creature meant him no  harm. But this time he was  determined that his mother  must see it too. He ran to the  landing rail. "Mummy. Mummy. Come quick!" he called.  "The strange doggy's back!"  Eleanor dropped her knitting  and came hurrying up the stairs.  But, when they looked in  Jeremy's room, the elusive  black dog had vanished again.  "We'll have to get you a real  dug one of these days," Eleanor  observed good-humouredly.  Jeremy felt confused and  angry. He knew the dog had  been there. Why could nobody  see it except him? What did it  mean? Jeremy went quietly  back downstairs with Eleanor  and they listened to the wireless  together for a couple of hours.  Around 10 o'clock Eleanor  kissed Jeremy goodnight and  shooed him off to bed. He undressed, crawled between the  cold sheets and fell asleep,  almost immediately.

Harris' presentation at the  Festival (August 14, 10 to 11:50  am) is entitled "Go With the  Flow" and is an anecdotal,  autobiographical account of her  60-year-plus writing career,  "...which," she comments,  "has decidedly been dictated by  what was going on around me."  : around me."  f Kit Pearson is a relative  j newcomer amongst published  ;,'children's authors, having her  | first book, The Daring Game,  , published in 1986 (Penguin  ,' Canada), but her background in  ! and dedication to children's  literature is solid and profes-  , sional.  | She has a UBC Masters in  J Library Science and an MA  ! from the Simmons College Cen-  j tre for the Study of Children's  i Literature in Boston.

For the first 21 days of July,  Jupiter is passing by the position that the sun was located  when people born on the last  four days of Taurus were born.  (May 17 to 20) After that it  moves into Gemini, so people  born in the first six days of that  sign (May 21 to 26) will have it  moving across their sun positions.  Those people can watch for  opportunity from just about  any direction, and a general  feeling of 'things are going to  work out fine' will prevail.

My companion and I settled into our seats after a  leisurely 40 minute drive from Lower Gibsons. The window at our elbows allowed us an eagle's view over the arbutus trees of Secret Cove.  Having timed our arrival to take advantage of a quiet,  late evening atmosphere, we were soon stunned by an invasion of hungry Canada Day diners. Fortunately, our  waitress calmly, professionally, shifted into overdrive and  succeeded in satisfying everyone.  Our decadent decision to share three appetisers was well  rewarded. The Oyster Chowder was a surprise with a subtle black pepper and oyster flavouring and hearty portion  of potatoes.  The Caesar Salad really was fresh, while the European  style Smoked Salmon blew our sox off. Thin slices of  salmon were complimented with capers, cream cheese,  onions, horse radish and melba toast over a bed of crispy  Romaine lettuce.  My friend, who has a critical scallop fetish, chose the  Prawns and Scallops entree as a bit of a challenge.  However the little sea critters which were sauteed in garlic  and ginger over mushrooms easily met her stiff requirements for taste and tenderness.  I chose the Flemish style Cod Fillet which was covered  with leeks, tomatoes and mushrooms in a light cream  sauce. The fish was hot and succulent. Our only regret was  that we had left no room to sample the desserts. We will  return.  Creek House - Intimate dining and  European cuisine in a sophisticated yel  casual atmosphere.

Possibly our share of  youth highway tragedies had  already been served before the  actual week of the ceremonies  arrived.  Or perhaps the Dry Grad experiment and the maturity of  the students produced a successful result.  According to Constable  Crawford of the Gibsons  RCMP Detachment, it is the  time before and after Graduation night when the road accidents usually occur.  In Gibsons, eight drivers and  two dispatchers from the Ambulance Unit volunteered their  time for two nights to provide  students with a safe alternative  at post Grad parties. They offered a free taxi service in  vehicles loaned by South Coast  Ford with gas donated by  Chevron. However, only four  requests for safe rides were processed.  NOBEL AWARDS  should be presented to the community and parents  who made our after-grad a perpetual spotlight in  our memory. It was a blast.

Coast News, July 4,1988  Police news  Vandalism at ferry terminal  The internationally acclaimed Nyhonza Singers and Dancers will perform one show in Gibsons at the  Twilight Theatre on Monday, July 11, at 8 pm. Don't miss this memorable event.     ��� Rollud Daiicts photo  Arts Beat  Students hired at Arts Centre  Thanks to a Federal  Challenge 88 Grant, two summer students, Paolo Tomasi  and Robin Shaw, will be spending July and August at the  Arts Centre in Sechelt.  Neither is a stranger to the  Arts Centre, having volunteered  with both the exhibition and  event programs. They will be  dividing their time between the  Arts Centre gardens and the  gallery where they will work as  gallery attendants, assist with  publicity and graphics, help to  hang three exhibitions, and plan  and organize an event. They will  also be involved with the  August Craft Faire taking place  in Hackett Park.  Paolo has already assisted  with the hanging of the first  show on the summer schedule,  Choir of Rattles. This work,  several huge floor to ceiling rattles by Roberts Creek artist  Carole Itter, has received a very  favourable response as it is  shaken and 'played' by visitors  from 8 months to 80! As the  shadows on the walls move also,  the whole building, as well as  the viewer, becomes part of the  piece.  Summer hours begin at the  gallery this week: Tuesday  through Saturday 10 to 4 and  Sunday 1 to 4.  Lovers of choral music will  be sure to get tickets for ihe  Nyonza Singers and Dancers of  Uganda, the second of the Arts  Council's summer choral series.  On Monday, July 11 at 8 pm  they will rock the Twilight  Theatre in Gibsons with both  traditional choral and traditional African music performed  in national costume. Tickets are  $6 for adults and $4 for students  and are available at the Arts  Centre and Talewind Books in  Sechelt and the Coast  Bookstore in Gibsons.  If tickets remain for tonight's  performance by the Tavasz  Choir of Budapest, performing  at St. Hilda's Anglican Church  at 8 pm, they will be available at  the door.  A note from your police  reporter: Last week's report of  willful damage or vandalism at  the ferry terminal waiting room  was accurate. There was  damage done by persons  unknown to the carpet and to  the picture frames.  Terminal Manager Mr.  Yates, tells us that a thick  substance was scraped,  presumably by a boot, into the  carpet. Th�� substance, perhaps  creosote, hardened and required  paint remover and a great deal  of 'elbow grease' to remove.  Pieces of the metal picture  frames were used to slip candy  from the machine. Posters were  removed, 'great to hang in a  rec. room.'  "The Assistant Manager who  first reported the incident," said  Mr. Yates, "thought the carpet  was burned. And it certainly  looked like it."  The constable's admonition  can be well taken and more  vigilance by public and terminal  staff would be in order.  The RCMP report that on June  17 they were called to a motor  vehicle accident on Gower Point  Road at Gospel Rock. They are  still investigating this accident in  which two youths out of the six  riding in the truck were injured.  Charges are pending against the  driver.  On June 26 a Sechelt resident  was charged under Section  149(a) of the Motor Vehicle  Act; i.e. driving without due  care and attention.  Charges against a 25 year old  male Gibsons resident are pending for the cultivation  and  possession of a narcotic.  SECHELT RCMP  Shortly before midnight on  Saturday, June 25, a 1980 Ford  flatdeck truck left Highway 101  on a curve near the Wood Bay  turnoff, just past Secret Cove.  Sechelt RCMP arrived at the  scene to find the damaged emp  ty pickup and the woods immediately behind it on fire.  "It appears the gas tank  broke loose and was ignited by  the arcing battery," said RCMP  Constable Leyh.  The blaze was extinguished  by the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department, which responded  promptly to Ihe call.  "They deserve a lot of credit  for arriving so quickly," said  Leyh, who added that the fire  could easily have threatened  homes in the area had it been  allowed to spread further.  The driver of the truck has  been charged with driving  without due care and attention  and will appear in provincial  court in Sechelt.

"Sttrie SeT  CLASSIFIEDS  They run until your item  is sold!  0*k 'I500 etters to the Editor  Coast News, July 4,1988  23.  Aquaculture disease Issue revisited  Editor:  In response to Laurel Suk-  kau's 'Reader takes issues on  fish farming', I would like to  answer some of the allegations  raised.  Firstly, on the problem of  fanned fish interbreeding with  wild fish, it is very doubtful that  a domesticated fish which has  been raised exclusively on pellet  food could survive for long in  the wild.  1 have witnessed len gram  fish swimming unmolested in a  pen with 500 gram salmon. It  wasn't that the fish weren't  hungry but that they didn't see  the small fish as 'food'.  Also, I understand that scientists feel that the reason a  salmon returns to a specific  stream or river to reproduce, is  that at birth it is imprinted with  the 'scent' of its home stream. It  should be noted here that the  hatchery fish, raised for fish  farming, have no such stream to  return to so it would seem that  if farmed fish were to escape  they would be ill-equipped to  feed themselves until they return  to their non-existent stream.  It should be also pointed out  that the Norwegians have been  breeding a domestic salmon for  20 odd years while we have only  been doing this for approximately four years, so while the  Norwegians might have a problem with interbreeding of wild  and farmed fish, our 'domestic'  fish are, for all intents and purposes, still wild and would have  little or no effect on the gene  pool of our wild fish.  Secondly, it should be noted  that Ms. Sukkau's use of the  phrase 'farm-borne parasites' is  not only misleading but untrue.  Gyrodactylis 'a parasite which  has devastated farm and wild  slock' - Ms.' Sukkau's quote  -naturally occurs here. The  DFO publication 'A Guide to  the Parasites of Fishes of  Canada' lists 36 known species  of Gyrodactyloides (Monoge-  nean parasites) of wild fish on  both the Atlantic and Pacific  Coasts.  Each of our Pacific species of  wild salmon has at least one  species of Monogenean parasite  peculiar to that species of  salmon. Rest assured Ms. Suk-  kau, DFO is not going to  Rotenone Wilson Creek because  of a parasite that already exists  there naturally.  Thirdly, this system Ms. Suk-  kau speaks of as 'has been  working perfectly for hundreds  of thousands of years" is now  out of control. The wild salmon  is in serious decline, new fishing  regulations have been passed to  save what remains of our wild  fish. This is not a problem  created by aquaculture but  rather aquaculture could take  some of the pressure off wild  fish.  The information Ms. Sukkau  quotes obviously comes from  the UFAWU publication  "Journey to the Future". This  itself is questionable as many  feel the Union is representing  those more concerned with  damage to their pocketbook  than damage to the environment.  D.L. Mackenzie  ^DEPENDABLE-  AUTO SERVICE  Did You Know...  We Oo Bailable A Economical  RADIATOR  REPAIRS  The South Coasts Only "V^ fe^  BCAA AFPBOVBP shop (Special consideration to BCAA members  yCLMmWl AUTOMOTIVE  Assurance: Our MLA Is listening  Editor:  Recently in your paper an article was printed which contained the concerns of Alderman  Lilian Kunstler with regards to  Regionalization and the  Mainland/Southwest region not  listening to the Peninsula.  I must tell Alderman Kunstler  that as the MLA for Mackenzie,  I have been working with the  Minister of State on behalf of  all my constituents.  Secondly, Alderman Kunstler  is concerned that the 10:30 ferry  extension guarantee had not  been received. I must tell Alderman Kunstler that the 10:30  sailing will remain on that run  all year around.  As well, Alderman Kunstler  is concerned about the Gibsons  bypass. This project is a great  concern not only to her, but  everyone on the Sunshine Coast  and that includes myself.  I would like to tell Alderman  Kunstler and the people of the  Sunshine Coast that I have been  working with the Minister of  Highways and the Minister of  State, to hasten this project, the  Gibsons bypass, to have it completed al the earliest opportunity. I will continue to do so until  successful.  Harold Long, M.L.A.  Tree farm tirade  Editor:  Canfor is asking for a Tree  Farm License that would give  them autonomy over logging on  Crown Land from Port Mellon  to the south face of Mount  Elphinstone.  A company spokesman is  reported as saying that this Tree  Farm License would give Canfor control of its own destiny  and reduce administrative costs  to the province.  Just as Canfor got its permit  to continue polluting, I am sure  they expect to get this Tree  Farm License. After all, as you  reported, this would be in keep  ing with the present government's move towards privatization.  The Vancouver Sun recently  had a series of special reports on  Forestry in British Columbia. It  was shocking to read about ihe  waste and devastation of forests  that has occurred over large  areas of our province. Large  companies are primarily responsible.  I find it alarming that now  the Social Credit government  intends to give complete control  of our forests to these same  companies.

During those years the  membership always wailed for  the treasurer's report at the  monthly meetings, because he  invariably had a nice little joke  to tell prior to the report.  Perhaps to lighten the load, someone will volunteer to take  alternate weeks with Ivan.

Thanks were  also expressed to the members,  guests and the husbands for  their participation and attendance.  During their second season,  the club was addressed at its  luncheon meetings by members  of the community on subjects  ranging from women and the  law to nutrition, services of  local government and care of  cut flowers.  The inaugural meeting of the  new season will be held in October.

This vote of confidence  in our endeavour is very much  appreciated and a vote of  thanks from Branch 69 goes out  to the manager and directors of  the Credit Union for this  generous donation.  'What came first? ihe chicken  or the egg!' That is a wee bit like  Ihe situation the building committee is facing. Some are saying they will donate when the  sod is turned, but the committee  must have the money prior lo  turning the sod.  Vancouver Foundation has  advised us that we must have 75  percent of our total building  cost in place prior 10 their consideration of a grant for us, so  let's 'get with it.'

Send your entries to reach the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons, by Saturday of this week. Last  week's winner was Melanie Sluis of Box 944, Gibsons, who correctly identified the Artglass by June Imanse located at the Burk Block  next to the Coast News office, Cruice Lane, Gibsons.  The Parthenon is ancient  history while The Raven is  nevermore as over $100,000  worth of restaurant equipment  went on the block Thursday,  June 25.  Over 150 buyers from restaurants, church groups, legions,  pubs and dealers, plus individuals participated in the  afternoon of bidding. A few  battered and very used-looking  pots sold for $5 as auctioneer  W.E. (Bill) henke made an impassioned plea.  "Think of all the great meals  you've eaten here (The Parthenon), aren't these pots worth  at least $5 for the memory."  They sold, as did countless  other items.  All through the afternoon  Henke urged people to bid and  out bid each other. He worked  the crowd and they paid.  And they got bargains. A  piano   for   $700,   bentwood  chairs for $24 or $27.50 depending on the lot. Plus clocks, bar  fridge for $30. It was an entertaining afternoon for young and  old. Children imitated Henke  calling bid, bid, bid.  Henke has been in the  business for 12 years. He trained at the Western College of  Auctioneering. He has sold  everything from cattle to  thoroughbreds to land.  Land is Henke's 'baby'.  Right now he and several other  auctioneers across British Columbia and Canada are working  towards having land become  normally sold at auction. Henke  says that it is common practice  in the US and Great Britain.  Henke is the President of The  Auctioneer Association of BC.  The association is lobbying to  have all auctioneers licenced  and bonded for accountability.  Henke is proud of his profession and happy to be back for  his fourth visit to the Coast in  six years.

Rick Waters, recently engaged as Claimant Service Officer  for the Lower Mainland, appeared al Sechelt's Driftwood  Inn Tuesday, before a small  group. His purpose: to approach people on a one-to-few  basis, io deal with personal  complaints and to provide in-  formalion.  . The remedial aid was in line  with the government's current  campaign to clarify the rules of  the Unemployment Insurance  Act, which Waters admits is  "complex legislation, second  only to the Income Tax Act."  With the help of an overhead  projector, Waters told  Tuesday's group how to fill out  a U.I. form correctly and avoid  processing delays, and explained some of the recent changes to  the rules, including paternity  benefits lo which 'acting  fathers' are now entitled. He  also distributed supporting  literature, available at the  Canada Employment Centre  Office in Sechelt.  Waters admitted there have  been "some service problems"  in the Sechelt office, largely due  to an antiquated filing system.  But he suggested that vastly improved service is on the horizon.  "A computer has been approved for the Sechelt office,"  he said, (although the federal  government has yet to come up  with the funding for it). "And  there will be a new inquiries officer who knows UIC inside and  oul and is very good with the  public."  Waters, who considers himself an 'ombudsman', stressed  that everyone has the right to  file a claim and encouraged  those who feel they might be entitled to do so.  "The worst that can happen  is someone says 'no'," he told  the group, "and then you have  the right to appeal to a board of  referees."  Waters is only one of several  hundred Claimant Service Officers hired nationwide in  response to growing public confusion and discontent with U.I.,  and the last contentious review  of the system. He told the Coast  News there has been a heavy demand on the service of late.  "We've had 26 percent more  claims than we expected in the  North Vancouver office for  March and April," he said. He  had no explanation for the  dramatic increase.  Anyone who has questions  about U.I., or feels they are being dealt with unfairly, is encouraged to call, toll-free,  1-800-972-8312.  Gibsons Chamber notes  by John Clarke  Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce executive and directors are settling  into their new positions. President D'arcy Burk has organized  committees covering various  areas of concern. Each committee will be chaired by a director,  with input from any member of  the community greatly appreciated.  The committees and corresponding directors are as  follows: Tourist Booth - Nadine  Lowden; Jaycee Charter - Carol  Renouf; Membership - Keith  Senderling; Government Relations - Joan Peterson; Newsletter/Publicity - John Clarke;  Fundraising - Haig Maxwell;  Brothers Park - Alasdair Irvine.  Anyone interested in assisting  directors on a committee, or  anyone with a suggestion for a  committee topic should contact  the Chamber office.  The Chamber of Commerce  would like to remind everyone  that the Info Centre located in  Lower Gibsons is more than  just a tourist booth. The Info  Centre contains reference  material and information covering numerous business topics.  Keith Senderling will be  heading up an aggressive  membership drive in the coming  weeks. Since some of the  Chamber's funding is determined by the number of paid  members, it is imperative that  we broaden our membership  base. Keith looks forward to a  great response.  Bob Hyams and his Sea  Cavalcade committee are well  under way organizing the  festivities for this year's event.  Sea Cavalcade Lottery  Tickets may be purchased at  most businesses. With over 50  prizes your chance of sharing in  the  $3000  worth   of  locally  donated  merchandise is very  good.  The Chamber of Commerce  will be publishing a bi-monthly  Newsletter in the coming weeks.  We welcome input from any interested party for the newsletter,  or for the Chamber's Coast  News column. John Clarke may  be reached through the  Chamber office.
