Array L/C    legislative Library       Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  89.8  d attack  p  terror In Roberts Creek  by John Burnside  Dog Control Officer Howard  Byard's fust week on the job  for the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, under contract with the  Town of Gibsons, proved to be  a tumultuous one last week with  two of the worst incidents of  vicious dog attacks ever recorded on the Sunshine Coast.  Both incidents involved the  same pit bull terrier and resulted  in the dog being shot on Thursday, September 8, by Byard  with the permission of the dog's  owner.  The first incident took place  on   Tuesday,   September   6,  about 3:45 pm.  Ed Johnson aged 40 of  Roberts Creek and Tina Wilson  aged 13 of the Middle Point  area were riding their horses  from Johnson's home on  Roberts Creek Road to the Ellingham   Riding   Stables   on  Ed Johnson of Roberts Creek and Tina Wilson of Middlepoint are pictured with their horses Pilot and  Hocus Pocus, respectively, which were the object of a savage attack by a pit bull last week. Insert shows  just one of the leg injuries received by Pilot (see adjacent story). -Vera Elliott photo  Lockyer Road. Wilson is the  daughter of B.C. Liberal Party  leader Gordon Wilson.  On the property of Shawn  Boyd, formerly the Dal Grauer  property, the two riders were  confronted by a pit bull which  was in the care of Gary Winters  whose residence on Highway  101 is across from the golf  course. Winters was visiting the  tenant of the cabin on the Boyd  property.  The riders held their horses  still whilst the pit bull sniffed  around them. Suddenly one of  the horses took fright and shied,  triggering a savage and sudden  attack.  Johnson's horse, a four-year-  old thoroughbred called Pilot  had a tear ripped in the sheath  of its penis, a chunk of flesh  torn from its right rear knee and  puncture wounds to the muscle  areas of both hips.  Wilson's pony, Hocus Pocus,  sustained a deep bite wound to  the right rear hock, or elbow.  The terrified horses plunged  into deep woods while the dog  continued its attack and both  riders were thrown from their  horses after being dashed  against trees and branches.  "It's a miracle we weren't  killed after we were on the  ground," recalled a badly  shaken Johnson.  The  dog  seemed  obsessed  with its attack on the horses and  pursued them as they bolted  down Hanbury Road to  Lockyer Road and across  Highway 101.  Trie riders too pursued their  horses on foot until they were  overtaken by Winters, in an  automobile. His attempts to call  the dog away from its attack on  the horses had been unavailing.  They found the dog near  Highway 101, having been  outrun by the fleeing horses.  Further down Flume Road  the horses had been caught by a  resident of Roberts Creek.  Dog Enforcement Control  Officer Byard's report dated  September 7 recommended  that, due to the seriousness of  the attack and the extreme  danger in which the riders had  been placed and the serious injuries done to the horses, the  dog should be destroyed.  "The injuries to the horses  would have been worse," Ed  Johnson told the Coast News,  "except for the fact that the dog  kept leaping at the horses'  throats and couldn't quite get a  hold of them for a killing bite."  Two days later Heather  Lyons of Roberts Creek had a  car breakdown on Highway 101  and asked for permission to use  the phone in the Winters'  residence. Permission was  granted but as she approached  the house the same pit bull lunged at her and bit her badly on  the upper arm.  Dog Control Officer Byard  arrived at the Winters residence  just a few minutes after the  dog's owner arrived. Alan  Haduicn had been in hospital  for two and a half months with  severe burns.  He agreed with the dog control officer that the dog would  have to be put down. Since he  was personally unable to shoot  the dog due to his own injuries,  he provided the gun and requested that Officer Byard perform the function, which was  done.

The bylaws had been denied  third reading at a special  meeting held on Tuesday,  August 23, when Aldermen  Dixon and Reynolds voted  against doing so because of the  failure of the applicant to provide a restrictive covenant.  According to the minutes of  the September 6 meeting, Deputy Mayor Norm Peterson asked  if there were any changes in the  situation regarding the Marina  Place project. Planner Rob  Buchan responded that he was  now satisfied that the applicant  had gone beyond the normal  level of acceptability and had  reduced the uncertainty attached to the project as much as  possible.

The meeting was called by  Mayor Bud Koch in order to  address a number of concerns  and protests being raised about  work that the municipal district  has been doing which several  people felt was interfering with  the natural flow of water into  the marsh.  The Municipal District has  been concerned about the  hazard of the open ditch which  runs along Medusa Street, and  has been installing culverts  along that stretch. At last Tuesday's meeting, Tom Meredith  suggested that the work may be  in contravention of both the  Water Act and the Wildlife Act,  as it was interfering with a  natural course and disturbing  the natural habitat of wildlife in  the marsh.  Alderman Bob Wilson challenged Meredith's arguments  saying that Meredith was using  the issue as a political  maneouver, which Meredith  categorically denied.  Doug Roy, a member of the  Marsh Society outlined a series  of 'cavalier practices and attitudes' demonstrated by the  district which he felt had forced  a confrontation between the  society and the council, including a list of unanswered  correspondence about the  marsh.  One such letter written,  several months ago, was  presented by Vince Bracewell,  and with Mayor Koch's input,  provided the framework for a  final agreement between the two  groups. Sechelt District Municipality owns Lot 50, and that  will be developed as an addition  to the marsh. However, bet  ween that lot and the marsh lies  Lot 49, owned by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD), and Lot 48, owned by  Len Van Egmond.  The group will be asking the  SCRD to allow their lot be  developed as part of the marsh,  and will attempt to raise the  $50,000, which Van Egmond is  asking for Lot 48, from private  donations.  The fund-raising started at  the meeting itself with members  of council and the audience  chipping in $500 contributions  totalling over $2500. It was  decided later that donations  should be made out to the  Sechelt Marsh Protective Society in Trust, in order for the  donations to be tax deductible.  At the next evening's meeting of  council, people who had made  contributions to the fund made  out to the District Municipality  of Sechelt were told they could  re-issue the cheques in order to  benefit from the tax deductible  status.  Other concerns that were  resolved at the Tuesday night  meeting included an agreement  to stop further work on laying  culverts and diverting water  from the marsh. The open ditch  will be closed in up to the boundaries of the expanded marsh  and allowed to flow freely from  that point on.  The increased volume of sea  water entering the marsh has  also been a problem, causing  much of the vegetation around  the marsh to die, according to  society members.  Mayor Bud Koch agreed to  prompt action on the matter including fixing the tidal flap gate  so that society members could  winch it closed when necessary,  and removal of the debris which  has been jamming the gate  open.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas has  been assigned as a liaison person with the Marsh Society, and  will be ensuring that the  society's concerns are dealt with  at council meetings.  Kunstler motion and after some  considerable prodding from  Deputy Mayor Peterson.  It was moved by Alderman  Dixon and seconded by Alderman Kunstler that the matter be  brought back before council  and the same two aldermen  voted in the affirmative to give  the bylaws third reading.  Alderman John Reynolds  continued his opposition, arguing in a prepared statement that  any new information could not  properly be received unless it  was presented to the public at a  public hearing.  Alderman Norman Peterson  had absented himself from the  voting on August 23,  presumably because of a con  flict of interest. No clear explanation has been provided as  to why he did not do so at the  September 6 meeting, indeed according to the minutes he  brought the subject up, other  than as Deputy Mayor he was  not called upon to vote.  In conversation with the  Coast News later in the week  Clerk Treasurer Lorraine Goddard said that she was not sure  entirely what the new information was since she had been  away for a week.  Alderman Dixon told the  Coast News that a more complete set of plans had now been  made available to council which  had not been available at the  public hearing and this persuaded him to change his vote.  Chamber dinner  The Annual General Meeting of the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce will be held on September 22 at Andy's Restaurant.  Bill Hughes, President of Howe Sound Pulp and Paper,  will address the meeting. He will discuss the forest industry's  impact on the local economy.

Let us begin by observing that propriety in process is not  recommended because one is opposed to any project or  any specific developer.  To be specific, we have no doubt that the Marina Place  retirement project is an excellent project, filling a need intermediary between leaving a home and garden that are  difficult to maintain and entering a care facility.  Having said that, there were some aspects to the  September 6 meeting of Gibsons Council that raise questions of propriety.  First, there is the anomaly of Alderman Norm Peterson  who left the special meeting held on August 23 to discuss  the project, presumably because he was in conflict of interest.  On September 6 Peterson was in the chair in the absence  of the mayor and, though he did not vote, a videotape of  the meeting indicates that he virtually cajoled Alderman  Dixon inlo making the motion thai brought the subject  back to the table and insisted that the planner make some  remarks that could give some justification for the vote  reversal.  If Alderman Peterson was in conflict on August 23 he  was assuredly in conflict again on September 6.  Alderman Reynolds deserves congratulations for the  clarity with which he grasps the fact that any new information provided after a public hearing is invalid unless it  comes also before the public at a new public hearing.  The staff of the Town of Gibsons know this and should  so have advised their council. A slight discrepancy in the  official minutes as to the sequence of events is also cause  for concern.  The Marina Place proposal would have no serious setback if another public hearing had been held. The need for  propriety is for the defence of elected officials, not to  punish proposed developments.  When Alderman Peterson was under attack some time  back for conflict of interest, we refrained from comment,  believing that the alderman was simply misled by his enthusiastic concern for the direction that town development  was taking.  In the case of the September 6 meeting he seemed wilfully in conflict - and that is a very serious matter indeed.  Answer the mail  Alderman Bob Wilson accuses Tom Meredith of politicking, that is seeking office, in his appearance before  Sechelt Council on the Sechelt Marsh issue.  If Alderman Wilson and his colleagues had been 'politicking' while holding office, that is responding to the concerns of the electorate, the special meeting on Sechelt  Marsh would not have been necessary.  Is it too much to ask the District Municipality to answer  its mail?  5 YEARS AQO  Regional Board Chairman Lorraine Goddard describes  as 'Insulting' to local politicians the actions of the B.C.  Ferry Corporation. At a meeting last week to discuss  reductions in ferry service much of the time was spent  discussing a reduction to six ferries per day, though a  crew member told Goddard earlier in the week that there  were to be seven and the schedule had already been set.  When pressed at the meeting by the mayor of Powell River,  Board Chairman Stu Hodgson finally admitted that seven  sailings were possible and drew from his briefcase the  schedule of seven sailings.  In the midst of the worst recession since the 1930's  Finance Chairman Bill Edney tells council that taxes In arrears In the Town of Gibsons total $276,223.  After protracted negotiations Regional Board Chairman  Lorraine Goddard and Sechelt Indian Band Chief Stan Dixon sign a $430,000 agreement for the extension of the  Sechelt sewer system to the Indian Band Lands.  10 YEARS AGO  MLA Don Lockstead has a meeting with Minister of  Highways Alex Fraser on the Sunshine Coast recently to  discuss various highway and ferry problems affecting the  15 YEARS AGO  The 'S' bend between Gibsons and Seaview Cemetery  on Highway 101 Is to be eliminated this fall.  20 YEARS AGO  Ferry authority officials report a busy weekend with  overloads returning to Horseshoe Bay starting about 11  am on Monday morning. Traffic continued heavy until the  last load which was cleaned up at 11 pm.  30 YEARS AGO  A Gibsons couple who were fishing last Thursday morning near Bowen Island were shocked to discover they had  netted an 18-foot shark.  35 YEARS AQO  Last Friday night two horses were killed when run Into  by a truck on the Sechelt highway about a mile and a half  west of Gibsons.  40 YEARS AGO  The luxury ship Prince George will replace the damaged  Prince Rupert September 13 on the Vancouver-Ketchlkan  run.

Then the Lions Gate bridge  was built to open up the land  holdings known as British Properties and Progress took over.  'You can't stop Progress' was  the accepted wisdom and it was  considered by most people to be  wholly good and desirable.  The Sunshine Coast has been ,��  spared that sort of exponential'  exploitation of the environment  by the barrier of Howe Sound,  but even the limited development over the past 30 years has  not been an unalloyed blessing.  There has been a price to pay,  for blacktopped roads, reliable  hydro service, a central  hospital, and more opportunities to buy more than one  needs.  When we first came here only  the highway was blacktopped;  hydro blackouts were not infrequent; we shared party line  telephone service with about 15  other families and waler came  from a well and was pumped up  to the house.  I think I appreciate a reliable  water supply as much as  anything, blacktop is nice too  In a nutshell  and we'd miss it now, but we  look back with nostalgia on  hydro blackouts, especially at  Christmas with the turkey in the  oven! It was a challenge to one's  creativity and ability to cope.  Talking about the party line  someone remembered how  waiting to get on the line encouraged patience and tolerance  of one's neighbour's peccadillos. It also provided us with  conference facilities as we could  talk with several neighbours  together and the local operator  gave us answering service and  relayed urgent messages.  No one locked their doors  day or night; money for the  paper boy or bread or milk  delivery was left in the mail box;  the only vandalism occurred at  Hallowe'en when gates or mail  boxes had a habit if disappearing into the surrounding bush;  the unwritten law of the beach  was honoured by everyone and  we knew everyone within a mile  or two radius from the house.  There was plenty of wildlife  along the beach too, deer, otter,  mink, chipmunks and in the  winter big flocks of ducks of all  sorts. The spring pre-migration  gathering of scoter would  decorate the sea like black lace  from the Franklin Road beach  out to Salmon Rock and I  remember watching 25-30 killer  whales frolicking in Shoal  Channel, breaching and smacking their tails on the water.  There are stil1 small groups of  scoter and golden eye but this  last two summers even the purple starfish which used to crowd  into the shady recesses between  the rocks at low tide are hard to  find.  All this wasn't a hundred  years ago, merely a little more  than a generation.  Walter Hardwick warns us  that within the next generation  we will be facing an enormous  population explosion - overflow  from the Lower Mainland.  But David Suzuki also warns  us that we have only another  generation to learn to live as an  integral part of the natural environment or the results of what  we have hallowed as Progress  will threaten not only the starfish but human survival on this  planet as well.  The Ball Poem  What is the boy now, mho has lost his ball,  What, what Is he to do? I saw It go  Merrily bouncing, down the street, and then  Merrily over - there It is in the water!  No use to say "O there an other balls":  An ultimate shaking grief fixes the boy  As he stands rigid, trembling, staring down  All his young days Into the harbour where  His ball went. I would not intrude on him,  A dime, another ball, Is worthless. Now  He senses first responsibility  In a world of possessions. People will take balls,  Balls will be lost always, little boy,  And no one buys a ball back. Money Is external  He Is learning, well behind his desperate eyes,  The epistemology of loss, how to stand up  Knowing what every man must one day know  And most know many days, how to stand up.  And gradually light returns to the street,  A whistle blows, the ball Is out of sight,  Soon part of me will explore the deep and dark  Floor of the harbour.../ am everywhere,  1 suffer and move, my mind and my heart move  With all that move me, under the water  Or whistling, I am not a little boy.  John Berryman  Pilots of the Purple Twilight  by S. Nutter  One of the best, though  perhaps the least 'posh', parties  of the year used to take place  about this time annually at the  Frontenac Hotel in Quebec City. This was the annual convention, or jamboree or rout of the  Bush Pilots of Canada, who  were not, when I think, any  kind of formal Association.  The party was funded largely  by the oil companies, particularly Imperial and Shell, and  featured a couple of rollicking  dinners and the 'Mocassin  Dance', a vigorous affair and a  sight to see in the grand  ballroom of the Frontenac.  I was at this bash one year  when doing a film history of flying in Canada. The bush pilots  were of course so much of the  story, and yet to catch the  oldtimers at that time would  have involved flitting about all  .over the country and a lot of  organization. The convention at  the Frontenac seemed a great  opportunity.  I had a camera and small  crew set up in an upper room  and thought, naively enough, to  simply steer one after another in  and winkle out his bit of the  history. Fat chance. The party  was the thing. Sure, they'd say,  glad to tell you anything, look  me up in Camrose,  Saskat  chewan, anytime, anytime. Or  Yellowknife, come to the big  bar, they'll all know me. I  caught (hree in all, plucked  from bed al about ten in the  morning, encouraged with a  morning glass into a lumberjack  shirt or whatever; pretty bleary  eyed stuff, but we used some of  it.  Their's is a great story of  course but at that time not  much told. The first book had  been from Philip Godsell, called  'Pilots of the Purple Twilight'.  Godsell was a big black bearded  English type who was Hudson's  Bay Company inspector  through the NWT and wrote a  lot in that excellent magazine  the 'Beaver'.  I had the good fortune to  meet him in Fort Garry, south  of Winnipeg, at age sixteen.  Fort Garry then was mostly  woods along the winding Red  river. I rambled in the woods  and so did he. It came that we  would walk along together once  in a while and he would tell me  tales of his years up the  Mackenzie.  He had me back to his house  and offered rum (I was tall for  my age). He took a cut glass jug  down into the cellar. One of his  perks on retiring from the 'Bay'  was a barrel of Factor's rum,  replenishable when empty. Talk  about golden eggs.  Among the reminiscences of  the flyers themselves, which  came along later, was one from  Wop May I think, remembering  that when you flew into  Godsell's post, and were circling  about looking for a place to  land, what you wondered was  whether Philip or his wife currently had custody of the key to  the rum locker.  I met original bush pilots first  in the war. We had three, including our OC on a flying boat  squadron then in Halifax. My  first operational flight, as  navigator, was with one of  these, Tommy Mahon, known  as The Mahone. We were to go  three hundred miles or so south  to meet a convoy.  Less than halfway there he  called me up and pointed to a  dim band of.cloud on the  horizon. "No good," he said,  "that stuff will be right down  on the drink. May as well go  home!" I gave him a course,  but a bit later he called on the  intercom, "Look, we've lots of  time. Give me a course for  Isaac's Harbour."  We landed on the bay and anchored off the village. A dory  came out as if by appointment.  A jug of rum and a sack of  lobsters came aboard.  Mahone's man, Atkinson the  engineer, had a pot boiling on  the stove. We went up and sat  on the wing in the sun. Atkinson, an agile type, standing on  my charts, handed up lobsters.  Unquestionably this was a way  to live, but I knew I'd have to  cover him at the de-briefing. I  did, but didn't fly with him  again.  Mahone, soon after, was  posted to Quill Lake, the salt  flats of Northern Saskatchewan. En route he stopped  off in Ottawa and went to the  Headquarters mess. Leaving the  mess someone barrelled into  him. Mahone hit out and looked down at a Group Captain.  They let him out of their air  force; but a few months later he  arrived in Gander, where we'd  moved, wearing a kind of  mauve suit, smoking a big cigar,  and flying Liberators to  England for Ferry Command at  a thousand dollars a trip.  The last I saw of Mahone was  in Sault St. Marie. I hadn't been  there before and was standing  on a corner looking about. A  funeral cortege was coming up  the street. As the hearse drew  abreast the window rolled  down. A big bowler hatted head  poked out, and a remembered  voice bawled over the street,  "Hiya Nut." His father had  died and left him the business.  He was certainly the most  unlikely undertaker I have  known.  ���As^H Coast News, September 12,1988  Trower's piece brings back memories  Editor:  What a treat to read Peter  Trower's account of a recent  trip up the Bridge River. My  mind has been taken over by  recollections of my first arrival  to that beautiful, peaceful valley  in 1957.1 had acquired a job as  a 'mucker' at Bralorne and had  arrived 12 days after highschool  graduation in Montreal. Minimum age for working underground was 21 years, so I had  darkened my chin to close the  four year gap.  In the summer of '59 the big  dam which forms Carpenter  Lake was nearing completion as  was the gravel 'high' road. Minto, the then ghost town, was  destined to be under water, as  was the old mine works. My  friend, Moose, and I spent  many hours in Minto enjoying  the solitude and the mysteries of  the whereabouts of the people  who built and inhabited that  once-thriving community. Who  would care for the graves of the  desparted when they were 20  feet under water?  One cool fall Sunday, Moose  and I went into a cluster of  homes and nailed down the  tables and chairs, spiked down  the plates and cups and put  stones in the soup bowls. What  fun!

The winner of the 1988  Diabetes Bike-a-Thon was Mrs.  Els Mercer who raised $833.52.  She won the mountain bike and  also a Sony Walkman which  was the third prize provincially  in the adult category. The total  amount raised was $2,003.42.  Many thanks to all the participants and to our volunteers,  Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Baird and  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Tierny. Also  many thanks to Neil Clayton at  Shop-Easy for supplying the hot  dogs and pop and displaying the  bike and to all the other merchants who allowed us to post  our posters.  Gail Wilson  Secretary-Treasurer  Foreshore concern  Editor:  Loss of our foreshores is an  issue that must demand our immediate attention and involvement.  It is an issue that does not  solely involve nor concern only  those individuals primarily interested in promoting and  enhancing their own particular  interests, lifestyles or monetary  gains, especially those individuals seeking to fill their  own pockets with the profits  derived from the sale of their  properties shortly after having  been granted foreshore rights,  profits that were derived at our  expense.  Foreshore is an issue that  concerns and involves each and  everyone of us. The foreshores  are our heritage, yours and  mine, and they must be protected and preserved by us now  and in the future so that you  and I, and future generations,  may also enjoy and cherish such  a precious gift. We cannot stand  idly by watching our foreshores  slowly being devoured by these  individuals because, in the end,  we will be the losers.  Please, I urge you, make your  voice heard. Express your con  cerns at your next Property  Owners' Association meeting.  Write letters to your local  regional and municipal offices,  and watch the newspapers for  notices affecting our foreshores.  Joan Marlon  Thanks  Editor:  On behalf of the children and  volunteers at the 1988 season of  Camp Goodtimes, I would like  to express our deep appreciation  for your generous support.  Camp Goodtimes hosted  over 70 children with a history  of cancer for 10 days; many  businesses and residents provided contributions of several  kinds to help make the camp a  success.  We would all like to thank  the people of the Sunshine  Coast for their continued  warmth and support for the  camp, and, especially, for the  campers!

Both she and Eileen McKibbin  of Sechelt are employees of the  museum this summer under a  Challenge 88 program.  Tarn Johnson, president of  the museum society for the past  three years, says that the  museum will be open Saturdays  and Sundays this fall and  winter. "We'll open, too, for  any group that requests a visit  during the week" said Tarn.  He added that school groups  are encouraged to attend. Call  him at 886-9757.  "We can send a volunteer  worker to any classroom to give  the pupils an introductory look  at some of our artifacts and to  tell them what they can see  when they do tour the museum  itself' said Tarn.  "The only way to preserve a  record of our history here on  the Sunshine Coast is to gather  the photos and samples of tools,  utensils and whatever of pioneer  days, and note their recollections and stories." That was Les  Peterson quoted in an article on  the museum published in the  Const News in 1981.  Les established the idea of the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum  by his diligent collecting of  photos and artifacts from our  old-timers.  Much of what he collected he  stored first in his own basement, and then much later after  two years of organizing, saw the  museum housed in the unfinished basement of the Town Hall.

By 1973 the present building  was ready (a second floor was  added in 1984), and from that  time the museum has steadily  made improvements. Now the  visitor can enjoy well-lit display  cases, instructive models and  replicas of pioneer shops and  rooms, all laid out for easy  viewing and study.  The Town of Gibsons, we  should note, maintains the  building, takes care of the  hydro bill, and annually makes  a grant to the museum.  At present the museum is  putting the finishing touches to  a display donated by Les and  Iva Peterson, of artifacts from  past times in the life of ihe  native people, The museum has  a copy of the history of the  Sechelt nation that Les Peterson  spent some years compiling with  the assistance of his friends in  the Sechelt band.  Many others have contributed their service and skill to  the museum. Among them are  Marilyn Tentchoff, curator for  several recent years, who added  much to the museum's development, and Gary Kent who set  up a cataloging system. Then  there are the undersea photographs by Tom Sheldon and the  many others who have contributed time and artifacts to the  museum.  All of us can, of course,  make tax deductible donations  to assist the museum that has  developed the record of our  history under the direction of  devoted volunteers.  ELPHINSTONE SCHOOL  Elphinstone Secondary has  presented Virginia Reynolds  with a plaque and a school pin  as a grateful acknowledgement  of the hours she has spent raising funds for the extra cur-  ricular activities of the school.  Virginia has conducted  bingos in the summer months  and on holiday Mondays during  the year. Branch 109, Royal  Canadian Legion, received a  special acknowledgement from  Elphinstone of the branch's  donation of their hall for these  summer bingos.

Please come along with  heaps of ideas. New members  are most welcome. Tea and coffee will be served.  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  A friend from New Brunswick once told me that she  didn't like this part of the  world, "because there's no  definite change of the seasons,  they all just run together."  Obviously she had not spent a  Labour Day, the official end of  summer, in Pender Harbour,  when that exodus of summer  residents and terrorists -1 mean  tourists, heads south with their  Winnebagos, wobbly pack-  laden 10-speeds, power boats  and ghetto blasters, to get that  last ferry off the coast.  Then, fall.  In that 24 hour period you  notice that the nights are nippy,  the skunks and jays are back,  the leaves are changing colour,  lakes are peaceful and the bays  are quiet, save for the occasional steady, deep throb of a  commercial fishing boat that's  certainly not going anywhere  for frivolous purposes.  You also notice that Pender-  patter is full of meetings,  registration dates and assorted  events. Our company has gone  home and our travellers have  returned. Welcome back,  Pender Harbour.  POETRY IN MOTION  Congratulations to John Pass  of Sakinaw Lake, recently named one of two finalists from  B.C. in the Canadian Poetry  Contest, a competition that  received more than 3000 entries.

Local writers, note that the  first fall Suncoast Writers'  Forge meeting will be held at the  Sechelt Arts Centre on  September 14 at 7:30 pm.

The 'Waterbabies V program  will be held from 11:00 to 11:30  am, not 11:30 to 12:00 as listed.  Oi vr aquatic and fitness centre  has been chosen to sponsor a  chapter of the Royal Lifesaving  Youth  Club,  a pilot  project  modelled after world famous  Australian programs designed  to develop swimming, emergency response, first aid and competitive skills in eight to 16 year  olds.  After basic skills are  mastered, teams will compete in  inter-club events held at the  pool and, like their Aussie  counterparts, in lakes.  Registration is necessary for  club membership, and must be  completed between September  14 and 16 from 10 am to 4 pm  at the Aquatic Centre, located  in the back of the PHSS high  school on Hwy. 101.

Sechelt    Scenario  Introducing Maggie from Sechelt  by Margaret Watt, 885-3364  Although Margaret is my  given name, some of you know  me as Maggie, from Macleod's  Hardware store where I work  part time. So it isn't as if I'm a  complete stranger. I have lived  on the Sunshine Coast for the  last 12 years and I am originally  from the west of Ireland with a  10-year stop-over in Scotland,  where I met my husband  George. Enough about me,  already.  WRITERS' FORGE  Wednesday, September 14 at  7:30 pm is the date and time of  the next general meeting of the  Writers' Forge. The meeting  will be held at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt and the guest speaker is  Judy Gill, a local writer. Judy  will share with us some new  ideas on writing romances.  Visitors and prospective new  members will be warmly  welcomed, and refreshments  will be served. Mark the date.  See you there.  FRIENDSHIP CENTRE  The Friendship Centre,  located on Inlet Avenue in  Sechelt, will be having a 50/50  draw sometime in the near  future. For those of us who  don't know what a 50/50 draw  is, it's a draw where half the  proceeds from the sale of tickets  goes to make up the prize and  the other half goes to the centre.  Tickets should be on sale later  this week. For further information the person to contact is  Louise Dufresne at 885-7217.  In closing, I would like to  thank Peggy Connor who was  so gracious to me when I phoned her for help writing this column. Also, I am asking for  your help. If you belong to an  organization in Sechelt and  want something in this column,  I can be reached most evenings  at 885-3364 or drop a wee note  off at Macleods for me and I'll  do my best.  SHORNCLIFFE  The regular monthly meeting  of Shorncliffe Auxiliary  will  resume on Tuesday, September  20 at 1:30 pm in the conference  room at Shorncliffe. Since this  is the first meeting of the season  there will be a lot to discuss and  I'm sure no member will want  to miss it. Mark your calendar.  Sechelt Seniors  Branch activities underway  by Larry Grafton  The fall session of our branch  got underway in proper fashion  on September 6 when your executive committee met to set out  recommendations to be  presented at the regular meeting  of Branch 69 on September 15  at 1:30 pm in our hall.  Realizing, of course, that  some members will still be on  holiday, those of you who are  able should plan to attend, if  possible, to look after the  business of the branch which  may have accumulated over the  summer recess.  POETRY  This little poem was brought  to my attention at our craft session last Thursday morning. As  seniors, and perhaps, a majority  of us with children and grandchildren, you will appreciate the  content of this little ditty. It is  entitled:  Where Is Gramma?  In the dim and distant past,  When Bfe's tempo wasn't fast,  Grandma used to rock and knit,  Crochet, chat and babysit.  HIGHWAY 101  TRAFFIC DELAYS  Please be advised that starting September 8, 1988  through to September 30,1988, there will be traffic  delays at the following locations due to bridge  resurfacing.

Grandma was the one for  giving.  But today Gram's in the gym.  Exercising to keep slim,  She's off touring with her  bunch,  Or with friends, she's out to  lunch.  Going north to ski or curl,  All her days are in a whirl,  Nothing seems to stop or block  her,  Now that Gramma's off her  rocker.  POTLUCK SUPPER  A social evening has been  planned for September 17 in our  hall. This is not a fund-raising  event.  The phoning committee will  endeavour to contact all  members, in an effort to have a  variety of food brought in for  the potluck supper.  In the event that you wish to  attend and have not been contacted, just bring along one of  your special or favourite items.  Members are advised that  they should bring their own  cutlery, plate, cup or whatever  they may need to do justice to  the variety of food that will  surely be on the table.  The meal is planned for 6 pm  so plan to arrive a little early so  that the food may be prepared  for serving. If the food turns  out to be as varied and tasty as  it was at our picnic in August,  you won't want to miss it.  If you need further information please call Olive Marshall  at 885-9904.  CHESS  One of our members has expressed an interest in playing  chess. Should there be sufficient  interest it may be possible to  have a gathering of enthusiasts  on a regular basis.  Although I personally do not  play chess, I would certainly accept expressions of interest and  take names at 885-7173.

LEGION NEWS  Royal Canadian Legion  members of Branch 112 are  reminded that a general meeting  will be held on September 19 at  8 pm.

SCOUTS ETC.  Registration for Pender Harbour Cubs, Scouts and Beavers  will be held at 3:15 pm in the  Madeira Park Elementary  School library on September 19.

September 12,1988  On regionalization  Connor makes first report  Guess Where  The usual prize of S5 will be awarded the firsl correct entry drawn  which locates the above, Send >our entries to reach the (oast  News, Box 46(1, tiibsons by Saturday of this week, last week's winner was Anne Parr-Pearson, R.R. 1, Sechelt, who correctly identified Ihe steering wheel on a post al Madeira Park Playschool.  On September 6 the first  meeting was held for the  Chairmen of Regional Districts  by Minister of State, Elwood  Veitch, to inform them about  how the regionalization process  should work and Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  Chairman Peggy Connor  reported on the meeting to the  SCRD board last week.  Several task forces have been  set up, she explained, composed  of a total of 40 people, which  will draw on the expertise from  regional district residents.  In her written report on the  information session, Connor  outlined the functions of the  task forces, "One task force will  be for highways, putting  together all the plans from past  years, top priorities from each  district should be recorded with  the Highways Department. The  order of priorities can then be  established.  "The economic services  development task forces, there  arc two at work, will be communications and youth services.  "The task force on the film  industry will endeavour to capture more of the tax revenue  from cable vision, etc., that  goes to Ottawa."  Director Gordon Wilson  remarked on the Highways  Task Force, "If we end up on a  priority list with the Lower  Mainland, there won't be  another dollar spent here."  Brett McGillivray agreed,  pointing out that this was an  issue with many of the directors  when the decision was made to  include the Sunshine Coast in  the Lower Mainland region.  "Whoever represents us had  better be screaming loud and  clear," he warned.  Connor also related an example made by the Minister of how  the system will work. They  looked over the province to find  where most of the unemployment was, she said. Having pinpointed Prince George as the  worst off, they have arranged to  have an industry that was looking to locate in B.C. move into  that area where it will employ  400 people.  The same sort of system, she  explained, will be used for  highways and other development.  Pit bull terror  Continued from page 1  In a subsidiary report  prepared after the second incident the dog control officer  pointed out that had he had the  discretion to put the dog down  after the first attack on the two  horses the second attack on  Heather Lyons would not have  taken place.  Noting that the SCRD is now  preparing to pass a Vicious  Animal By-law, Officer Byard  stressed to the Coast News in a  conversation last week that it  was important that, if such attacks as these were to be  minimized or controlled it was  in his view essential that the  responsible officer be granted  adequate authority to destroy  dangerous animals.  "Most responsible authorities  with whom I have discussed this  matter agree that dogs such as  the one which initiated the terri  ble attacks in Roberts Creek last  week have to be destroyed  without inordinate bureaucratic  delay during which they are  liable to repeat their attacks."  "It's not at all that I have a  desire to kill dogs, but for the  safety of the community a  representative of the community has to be free to act swiftly in  those rare occasions, such as  last week, when an animal is a  serious danger to the members  of the community."

The Sunshine  Second Section  Denies collusion on advertising  Wilson to seek an inquiry  Provincial Liberal Party  Leader Gordon Wilson held a  press conference last Thursday  to address quesiions raised by  the Const News regarding the  awarding of advertising contracts with local newspapers by  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  Wilson stated at the offset  that he was calling the meeting  as the leader of the Liberal Party because he felt that the implications of possible political  patronage have their basis in his  affiliation with the Liberal Par-  Wilson had come under fire  from the publisher of the Coast  News, John Burnside, when he  made a motion at the SCRD  board meeting on July 28 that  staff recommendation to award  the advertising contract to the  Coasl News be ignored, and instead that advertising be shared  between the two local newspapers.  The motion was made after  the editor of the competing  newspaper, a member of the  Liberal Party, was allowed to  speak at length against the staff  recommendation.  Burnside requested an investigation by the Ombudsman's office as a result of what  he called, 'Wilson's interference  in the process', but was told  that the Ombudsman's office  does not currently have jurisdiction over municipalities or  regional districts.  In his statement to the media,  Wilson said that, while there  were a number of irregularities  which took place during the  process of awarding th? contracts, none of the mistakes  were his, with the exception of  , Tetrahedron ski trails are for hiking in the summer time.

In looking back, he said, he  realized that he should have opposed that motion, but added  that he was only one member of  the board which passed it.  Wilson said that he had  discussed the controversy with  John Burnside, who made him  aware of provisions within the  Municipal Act where an elected  Official can request an inquiry  into a situation which may require an unbiased third party  arbiter.  Presently, his lawyers are  looking into the matter. But  Wilson said, if he decides to ask  for an inquiry he will suggest  that the chairman of the  Regional District board make  the formal request.  "I believe I have acted  without conspiracy or  collusion," Wilson stated emphatically. "I don'l feel I can be  held responsible for incompetence of the SCRD staff.  I can be held responsible if no  action is taken, but that has  been initiated."

We're told he suffered second and third degree  burns, mostly to his back and  arms, and some smoke inhala-  lion but he should be all right.  An eyewitness reports that  Jack was blown through glass  doors and" suffered severe cuts  as well as burns.  The house was totally engulfed in flames when the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department arrived around 6:15 pm.  Everything had looked fine only  minutes before when son Kevin  Jack went outside to work in the  yard and neighbours drove by.  Investigators came from Vancouver first thing Saturday morning to look through the remains of the house to try to  determine the cause of the fire.  Those findings have not yet  been released.

Here  he began painting again in an  entirely new style, influenced by  his Oriental studies and the  work of Seattle artist, Mark  Tobey, It proved to be the  painter's breakthrough that  would lead him on to fame.  In due course. Jack moved to  Vancouver and look tip a Bohemian existence in the burgeoning counter-culture enclave of  Kitsilano. His unique new work  began to gain attention in the  local arts community. He was  signed hy the UattvXi Gallery  and made some important  friends, such as local writer,  George Woodcock, who shared  Jack's deep interest in Ihe  Orient.

LAST CHANCE  'Threads of Survival' at the  Arts Centre, is now in its final  week ending September 18. The  collection of tapestries by poor  Chilean women working under  the sponsorship of the Catholic  Church, has proven very  popular here  It is difficult to imagine  anyone seeing and understanding these images and remaining unmoved. The women have  laken subjects from the terrible  conditions of their lives in  Chile, executed the images in  scraps of brightly coloured  cloth, bits of foil and yarn.  They have filled each picture  with human figures and achieved a powerful denial of the rule  of terror and death, as assertion  of hope and life.  A number of arpilleras are  for sale with a portion of the  proceeds going to the women  who made them ($600 to date).  Hours in which to see the  show are: Wednesday to Saturday, 11 to 4, and Sunday 1 to 4.  was now producing. Seeking a  mote tranquil environment, he  moved to Texada Island and  rented an ancient farmhouse,  reportedly the oldest building in  the area. He also met and eventually married a local girl named Mary. Safely ensconced in  these rural surroundings, Jack  Wise plunged into a furious  spate of creative activity, turning out one inspired painting  after another, It was at this moment in lime that our paths  crossed.  Jack and I began our collaborative venture hy mail initially. I sent him the manuscript  and he took it from there. Jack  Simply picked out the poems  that most appealed to him and  put his artistic energies to work.  When I received the first drawings, I realized we had something pretty novel on the go.  The illustrations were totally  remarkable, complex, graceful  visual extensions of the poems  lhat lifted them into another  realm altogether. Jack seemed  to possess Ihe ability to provide  a pictorial equivalent for my  most abstract images. He could  literally draw the undrawable.  We had agreed on 12 illustrations. They arrived in batches of  two or three and each one was a  knockout. Using both pen and  ink, and wash techniques, Jack  seemed out lo top himself with  each new picture. When I finally had the complete set, I could  barely believe it. This was going  to be one beautiful book.  I got in touch with Jim  Brown, then publisher of  Tulnnhooks and showed him  the entire package. He was  delighted and agreed to do the  book without question. We got  a greal break around litis time.  A Province reporter gol wind of  the projeel and did an article on  Jack and me. It was a nice bit of  pre-publication Hack. All Ihe  omens seemed to be on our side.  Now the book was more or less  in the bag, Jack suggested I  come up to Texada for a few  days to celebrate, unwind and  generally check oul the island.  1 didn'l know too much  about Texada Island al lhal  point, beyond the fact lhal il lay  across from Powell River and  boasted at least one active mine.  I'd heard a few peculiar stories  about ihe place, one being lhat  the local Indians considered it  taboo and had never settled  there. They apparently used to  believe lhal the island was  somehow unstable and was  fated to fiip completely over  someday. This was only a vague  rumour but it certainly piqued  my interest. One spring morning, I caught Ihe bus and headed  north to this Terra Incognita.  Library  report  by Pamela A. Feichtner,  Community Librarian  As residents and visitors alike  enjoyed the many outdoor activities on our beauliful coasl  and the glorious weather we had  this summer, it might have been  expected that there would have  been a decline in the use of the  library, but this was not so.

On ihe same day 25  new and re-ncwed memberships  were processed. One of many  busy days.  Our challenge '88 summer  student, Jeremy Reimer, was a  great help lo us and we will miss  him.

A new show called "Coast  Images" can be seen in the show  space. It is the painting in  watercolours of Rosemary  Schouw, who has lived on  Gambier Island for four and a  half years.  Originally from Nova Scotia,  she has studied in Ottawa and  Winnipeg. Her work explores  the play of light and shadow on  the ocean shore and skyward.  Rosemary sees the coast in all  its beauty through the eyes of an  avid boater, remarkably shown  in such paintings as "Summer  Cruise".  Two outstanding paintings  -"Cloud Burst Over the Coast  Cable Eleven  Range" and "Boat Country"  portray the subtle greys of this  coast in a masterly way.

Is it possible to prepare for  confusion or plan for chaos?  Sort of. If you know that there  is a time coming up when Murphy's Law predominates events  you can schedule around that  time. You know Murphy's  Law: Anything that can go  wrong, will.  So it's useful to know a few  weeks in advance when Mercury  will be going retrograde. That  planetary situation, when Merc-  cury appears to be moving  backwards, indicates a time  when there are a lot of foul-ups  in communication and transportation.  Please be clear that I'm not  talking about anything so  dramatic as airplane crashes or  international incidents. The  type of things that occur are  more along the lines of keys  locked in cars, appointments  that are cancelled after you've  already left to keep them,  babysitters that turn up a week  late, and just general misfiring  of communications.  Mercury will be going  retrograde on September 28 and  keeps it up until October 20.  There are some things you can  do to prepare for it.  Try to get your car in for a  tune-up before that time and  take qare of any minor problems that are cropping up.  Make sure it has oil and water,  and all those other fluids. And  get some extra keys that you can  place in convenient locations.  Extra house keys can help,  too, in case you lock yourself  out of the house.  If you're going to travel during that time make it easy on  yourself. Don't schedule things  too close together, and if punctuality is going to be an issue,  try to do your travelling before  or after those dates.  For those who live on the  Sunshine Coast, ferries can  become a problem. During that  lime, pretend you live at least 10  minutes further away than you  do and give yourself lots of time  for traffic delays.  This is a lousy time to meet  deadlines, so if you're a student  or have presentations of any  kind that will be due at that  time, get going on them now.  The more preparation you do in  advance, the better. You might  want  to  make duplicates of  everything so you don't get  stuck if the original gets lost.  Teachers might consider giving the kids a break and try not  lo do too much testing during  that time. Brains are not functioning at their best when Mercury goes backward.  That also makes contracts  and legal agreements more complicated. If you have documents  or negotiations that need to be  finalized, try to schedule them  at another time, things agreed  to during this time may involve  misunderstandings.  All in all, it's a time to flow.  Instead of getting frustrated, try  to tell yourself that it really  won't matter 100 years from  now.  Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting is being held on  September 15 at 7:30 pm in the  Marine Room below the library.  Old and new members and  guests are welcome.  Some slides of this year's  prize winning roses of the Vancouver Rose Society will be  shown. A garden question  period will follow.  The sunflower contest pictures of flowers and winners  will be in with next week's copy.  The days are still warm  enough and dry enough to start  to cut back and remove finished  plants and debris around the  garden. Place in layers on the  compost heap, add some  manure, some soil and a thin  layer of lime, moisten the pile  with water, cover with a plastic  covering, and with sufficient  heat, and after several turns to  aerate it should be ready for  spring planting.

WE SELL PARIS  The South Coast's Only  BCAA APPROVED Shop  (Special consideration to BCAA members)  fyaUUM&H  AUTOMOTIVE  Happy 21stfl  Susan     H  i    Mom & Dad    ||  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Totut oi  Various commitments had caused us to arrive very late at the  Mariners' Restaurant last week. Nine pm is leaving it to the last  minute in a restaurant which closes at ten.  It is an anomaly of the Mariners' that their full and splendid  menu is on a couple of chalkboards. There was no time for me  to hurriedly note down the abundance of menu possibilities  for the purpose of this dining review, nor did it seem appropriate that 1 pack away one of the chalkboards for use in  the Coast News office.  For these reasons I cannot be detailed about what is  available but there are certainly enough selections to make  choosing difficult and some of the fish possibilities are quite  simply nol available elsewhere on the Coast.  Both my companion and I were intrigued by Cajun cooking  selections offered. We disagreed briefly about which of us  should give up our preference for the purpose of this review  then amicably decided, despite the menu variety, that if both of  us fancied Cajun cooking then the peaceful way forward was  for both of us to have Cajun cooking.  She chose the Cajun Chicken and I the Cajun New York  Steak. Mindful of the generous portions at the Mariners' we  decided to forego the soup in favour of a light salad which  came with the most delightful orange honey and curry dip that  it has been my pleasure to experience.  The meals came promptly served by a most cheerfully obliging Jennifer who, despite the lateness of the hour, encouraged  us to linger and enjoy and that we did overlooking the twinkling lights of Gibsons Harbour.  My companion managed a most delightful looking dessert  after her Cajun chicken, I contented myself with a cup of coffee and a drambuie.  All in all, a belated and spur of the moment decision turned  into a very pleasant outing indeed. But be prepared for some  difficult choosing as you stand before the Mariners'  chalkboard upon your arrival. However, the selection is grand.  Average meal prices quoted  do not include liquor.

It has been said that making  good curling ice is an art. If that  is true, then we have a new resident artist in our midst. John  McKerracher is 29 years old and  comes to us with seven years of  ice-making experience from the  Arbutus Curling Club in  Vancouver. He and his wife  Shelley and their seven year old  son Christopher have taken up  residence in Roberts Creek.  John is just one of the  changes I spoke of. We also  have a new look around the old  club. There are new dehumidi-  fiers, fans, flooring, washroom  facilities, and much, much  more. Our club is quickly  becoming a bright and upbeat  place to walk into.  The 1988/89 season promises  to be an enthusiastic, friendly  and competitive one with curling actually gelling underway  on October 3, 1988.  For all curlers old and new  and for those of you on the  Sunshine Coast that have never  been in our building, we invite  you to an open house on the  evening of Friday, September  23, 1988. The doors open at 7  pm.  If you are already a curler  -bring a non-curling friend. If  you are new to the Coast or  know no curlers yet, but would  like to see our facilities and  learn more about the game,  come on out and see us on Friday, September 23. It's probably the only time of the year  you'll be able to meet Alex  Skytte while he's still  undefeated!  Good curling!

Upon arriving al Earls Cove,  I hail rolled up my vehicle window to close out the noise and  fumes Irom the ears. I glanced  ;n mnd and noticed that the  small island I used lo walk  around on while waiting for the  ferry was now completely levelled and a barge of lish food,  lltindred: :'l plastic bags piled  high, sal moored along the new  shoreline. As I bounced over the  ramp I rolled my window down  and suddenly a nauseating  stench assaulted my senses. The  smell was far worse than the  pulp mill emissions on a bad  day. Whether there were dead  lish from one of the local fish  farms nearby or fouled nets, I'll  never know, as I wasn't about  lo hang around to investigate. I  did wonder what the vacationers who jammed the Earls  Cove terminal were thinking. I  also wonder if anyone had gotten sick, the smell was that bad!  When 1 arrived in Sechelt I  decided to drive to Porpoise  Bay campground to prepare my  dinner. On ihe road to the provincial park I encountered the  same stench, I turned around  and high-tailed ii to Roberts  Creek picnic site instead. I was  later lold hy residents that along  this same road to the park is the  regional dumpsite where there is  also a huge fish burial pit for  fish farm morts.  According to a recently published federal fisheries map,  there are now 60 fish farms in  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District alone, and 173 in total  on the south coast (Vancouver  to Port Hardy). It is becoming  more and more obvious that  those persons promoting the  tourism, real estate and retirement industries or any community-based functions which  draw in the public, are going to  have an increasingly difficult  time due to the many problems  created by the fish farming industry. The smell is just one  issue.  I believe tourism and fish farming are incompatible and I feel  many coastal communities are  going to have to decide which  industry they are willing to support, tourism which is a steady  growth industry and one in  which all members of the community benefit, or fish farming  which is considered by many experts to be a very high risk industry fraught with problems  and an industry that can be  practically wiped out in one  afternoon by a toxic algae  bloom.  If I didn't live in Powell River  and have to take the ferry  regularly to Vancouver, I'm  sure I would never willingly  undergo such an olfactory ambush again.  I can only assume lhat a  visitor to the Sunshine Coast  may think twice about returning  here.  Claire Heffernan  Powell River, B.C.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.  LOG  BUYING  STATION  Competitive Prices  Camp Run  ��� CEDAR ��� FIR ��� HEMLOCK ���  886-7033  Highways seems to be threatening  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication,  Ministry of transportation  and Highways  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C, V8V 1X4  Attention: Mr. Neil Vant  Mini I it ol Highways  We have a .small parcel of  land on Ciatdcn Hay Road in  Pendei Harbour. We have for  in years nurtured and worked  Ihis land lo make il a viable little  farm. Alongside our farm is  litis toad and where lite road  meets oul property there is a  bridge. We have been told that  ihis bridge is in need of replacement due to rolling pilings.  Although there is some controversy regarding the conditions of the bridge, the  Highways Department has  decided to replace it.  We do not disagree with Ihe  replacing of the bridge if it is  really necessary. As the  I lighways Department is replacing the bridge, Ihey have decided to change the angle of the  placement of ihe bridge and  make the toad onto the btidgc  and oil the bridge a certain curvature as dictated by a grid  mad. Ihis is also to accommodate a 50 kilometre highway  fot traffic expected 20 years in  the Inline.  I Ip until now this road and  the bridge pose no threat to ihe  lives of people travelling on it  and is nol dangerous, There are  no 'slow' postings or any warning signs on the toad. Now due  lo the changed angle of Ihe  bridge, the Highways rct|ttire  part ol out best grazing land  which is in the Agricultural  I and Reserve,  Needless to say this will greatly reduce our land size and puts  a highway over our prime flat  field, We feel this is completely  unnecessary as the highway is  now very straight and il makes  no sense In putting another  curve into an already very curved road  As we are open-minded people, we hesitate to stand in the  Way of progress but this proposed highway was not discussed  with us even though a major  Thanks  Editor:  (inee again Ihe campaign to  taisc kinds lot Cystic Fibrosis  research litis been veiy sttc-  cessful.  On behall of the foundation  and the children I would like lo  lhank Ihe (nasi News lor their  publicity, and theh columnists  who so willingly advertise upcoming evenls.  I would also like to say lhank  yon lo everyone on the coast  who participated and contributed to making our campaign so worthwhile.  Elva Dinn  Sunshine Coast Representative  Superior  coverage  Editor:  Ibis is to convey our lhanks  and appreciation of the superior  coverage given lo Sechelt  Celebration Day, 1988, by Ihe  (dtist News both before and  ,'iflct the event.  Celebration Day 88 is now a  good memory. So is your positive attitude.  Doug Roy, Chairperson  Celebration Day 1988  Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce  fencing repair job was being  done when the Highways properly agent came by to assess  Ihe property. All that work will  be of no avail when it is torn  down to be replaced by another  fence further in.  The Highways Department  requires at least a six-metre expansion from my understanding  at the meeting in Gibsons with  Mr. Warrington. The Highways  have requested that we relinquish 10 metres, with what they  consider a fair settlement. We  do not consider their amount of  compensation adequate to compensate for our loss but we  reconsidered the land in question and very reluctantly offered  lo give up seven and a half  metres for their expansion. Incidentally, as ! understand they  have 33 feet of easement on the  olher side of the road but with  the thick undergrowth and the  salmon spawning creek they  refuse to consider expansion on  that side.  This offer was refused by the  Highways Department and they  demanded 10 metres or they  would expropriate for 15  metres. This counter demand by  the department we feel is very  unfair and almost threatening.  The Department of Highways seems not to lake into consideration the damage to our  property as a long straight piece  of farm land ruined by a curve  taken out of the middle. They  seemingly fail to consider the  grazing land that they will be  forever destroying, not to mention in the future, the hay and  feed we will be required to purchase to feed our livestock.  We feel that basically if the  bridge needs to be replaced,  then replace it. If the proposed  'grid' highway is essential, then  please take only what is needed  and have the honour and the  decency to pay for what you  take. Highway robbery, excuse  the pun, is illegal, or so I  thought.  Again we feel this highway  work is totally unnecessary,  apart from replacing the bridge,  the stress created on the spawning creek is unnecessary and  with so many projects already  started and not completed, as  the stretch of highway near  Woods Bay, and even the ferry  unloading exits at Langdale, is  the minister wise to start yet  another project with the funds  for the highway so limited?  Please reconsider this  highway upgrading and leave us  our land.

Coast News, September 12,1988  Dixon suggests  park for Jervis  Parks Committee Chairman  Stan Dixon has received the go-  ahead from the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) to  pursue the acquisition of Crown  I and and waterlot leases in  otder to create a park in the  McMurray Bay and Barren  Lake area of Jervis Inlet.  Last Thursday, Dixon  presented his idea to the SCRD  Parks Committee. He pointed  out that, olher than Princess  Louisa Marine Park, no other  park is in place in Jervis Inlet.  The location at McMurray Bay,  he pointed out, is a safe harbour  even at low tides, fresh water is  available from Barren Lake's  drainage, and level camping exists above the high water mark.  In his brief to the committee,  Dixon wrote, "Establishment  of this park could be view ed as a  central component of a very  needed marine park system  along the entire length of Jervis  Inlet's 40 kilometres of outstandingly beautiful waterway. This  marine  Inlet  park system could ultimately be  tied into the Sechelt Inlet Park  system which was established in  the 1950's."  The Parks Committee gave  its unaminous support to the  recommendation that the  SCRD staff pursue the possibility of securing this area for use  as a safe harbour and general  recreation, and at the meeting  of the SCRD board later that  same day, the recommendation  was adopted.

BROWNIE REGISTRATION  If you have daughters  Urownie age then you may  register them at Davis Bay  school from 5:30 to 6:30 on  September 20. They will be  known as the Wilson Creek  Brownies.  TRUISM  "To err is human, bul when  Ihe eraser wears oul ahead oJ  Ihe pencil, you 're overdoing It,"  - borrowed from J. Jenkins.  Daniel Pt.  access  a concern  A land swap which took  place several years ago, with the  developers of property at Lee  Hay, included a guarantee that  when the Daniel Point area  became accessible by road, the  developers would create parking  space and fool access into the  park.  In a letter received last week  by the Regional District Parks  Committee, Howard White  pointed out that, "there is now  it well-maintained road which  runs past the park area to the  Daniel Point Fish Farm, but no  work has ever been done on  opening the park."  White asked that the  Regional Board not lose sight of  ihe commitments made to provide access to the park which he  wrote, "offers one of the very  few opportunities for residents  and visitors alike to savour the  craggy beauty of an exposed  coastal headland, and the views  of Malaspina Strait and the  Pender Harbour entrance are  unsurpassed."  Gordon Wilson told the  meeling that the Area A Planning Committee (APC) share  White's concerns and suggested  that he be asked to sit down  with the APC and work out  some recommendations for the  Regional Board to pursue.  The recommendation was  passed by the committee and  adopted by the Regional Board  at a meeting later that day.  THE LITTLE CHURCH  The Church of His Presence  on Redrooffs is still looking for  a new home, but not for the  reason stated in last week's column. The property on which it  is located is still owned by the  Greenes and has not been sold.  Mr. Greene offered to donate  the building to the Anglican  Catholic Church who are the  present users in the hope that an  alternative spot could be located  on which to move it.  When the time comes for the  property to be sold the purchasers may not want the  building and could decide to  dispose of it.  So if anyone out there can offer an alternative it would be  good news for all who have  learned to love the little  building.  A BIRTHDAY PARTY  The family of Hugh  McPhalen of Redrooffs  gathered for a special dinner to  celebrate Hugh's 91st birthday  last week. It was held at the  Sechell home of daughter and  son-in-law Louis and Pat Mitten. Family members from  Powell River and West Vancouver were also present.  Hugh is still a very active  man, drives his own car and  takes excellent care of a huge  garden.  Happy birthday Hugh, and  may you have many more.

VON 1V0  Phone: 886-4605  FAX: 886-4607  Adopting a Special-Needs or Older Child:  It takes much more  than love alone.  There are many people in British  Columbia who have been waiting a  long time to adopt a baby. At the same  time, there are many special-needs and  older children waiting for adoption.  In order to help unite more of these  children and parents, your Government  is providing new information and  support services because we recognize  that successful adoption is not an  easy task.  Adopting an older or a special-needs  child is a major decision for a family to  make. It requires an informed decision  based upon the strength of the family  and the particular needs of each child.  Special-needs children include some with physical or mental handicaps,  learning disabilities, developmental delays, or who may have been abused. In  addition to providing a stable home, families may need to obtain therapy,  counselling, rehabilitation services or special equipment to help children deal  with medical problems.  In Vancouver and Prince George there are adoption projects in place  supported by staff specially trained in assisting potential parents in making the  best decision, and to help them meet the challenges of older and special-needs  children.  If you would like to learn more about adopting an older or a special-needs  child, contact your local office of the Ministry of Social Services and Housing.  ���-���������.����: ������.$&���������  '  Our future needs responsible decisions.

Golf course expansion getting close  Negotiations between the  Sunshine Coast Regional  Disirici (SCRD), MacMiUan  Bloedel and the province for the  expansion of the Sunshine  Coasl Golf and Country Club  are beginning to have results,  Chairman Slan Dixon lold Ihe  meeting of the SCRD Parks  Committee last week. Dixon  recently met with the Minister  of Slate for Vancouver Island/  Sunshine Coast to discuss Ihe  proposed extension and was  favourably received.  The Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country Club abuts Cliff Gilker  Park, and serves an area from  Port Mellon to Pender Har  bour. The nine holes have  become excessively crowded  and as a result, the club has considered dosing Ihe facility to the  public, something the SCRD  does not wanl to see happen.  In order to address the problem, the golf course has agreed  to keep the facility open to the  public in perpetuity, if a portion  of Cliff Gilker Park can be  opened up for a further nine  holes.  However, Ihe Regional  District is not willing to see the  park size reduced, and so would  like to incorporate a comparable piece of property into a  park.

Gurney emphasized thai no  final decisions will be made, or  deals signed without holding a  public meeling to present the  details lo the public, followed  by a public hearing to get the  public's response.  "Wc have not forgotten the  promise we made to hold public  information meetings," he said.  "We're just gelling Ihe information together lo present to  the public."  The expansion of the golf  course would require an amend  ment lo the Communily Plan,  and therefore must be dealt with  at a public hearing.  "It's a complicated issue,"  Gurney added.

Coast News, September 12,1988  Rockwood Lodge 1 e^^^^  proving worth  Conservative candidate Michael Rabu made a whirlwind visit to the  Sunshine Coast last week. He officially opened a campaign office  at the site of the former Klaus Bakery. ��� Ptnny Fuller photo  by Rose Nicholson  Rockwood Lodge is proving  to be a valuable asset to the  cultural life of Sechelt. In a  report to Sechelt Council last  Wednesday night, Kay Little  quoted many letters of appreciation that have been received following the recent Festival  of the Written Arts. The writers  were all enthusiastic about the  Lodge, the Festival and Sechelt,  and many declared that they  would be returning for future  visits.  Little reported that the Lodge  is booked almost solidly for  September and October, with  groups coming from as far  away as Seattle, as well as from  Powell River, Vancouver  Island, Vancouver, West Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast.  These groups represent quilters,  weavers, machine knitters, a  hiking club and a violin class.  The Lodge is also a place for  local artists to display their art,  with a new exhibit featured  every month.  So far, the lodge society has  taken in $20,000 and has spent  $16,000 on upgrading and  maintenance. Most of the work  has been done by volunteers,  with only $300 spent on wages.  The recent donation of a $6000  walk-in cooler will be a big asset  for catered events.
