 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4    H:.!  I  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  December 7,1992 Volume 46 Issue 49  Supreme Court denies band's injunction bid  bv Jane Seyd  By now. the legal and technical  arguments are over, and it's water  under - or over - Ihe bridge.  Bul Ihe battle over sinking Ihe  destroyer Chaudiere continued right to  the last moment on Friday, as ihe  Sechell Indian Band foughl for - and  lost - an eleventh hour injunction in BC  Supreme Court lo prevent the ship from  going down.  As diving enthusiasts began arriving  on the Coast for a celebratory reception  with Ihe Artificial Reef Society on Friday night, lawyers were still arguing the  case in court, while Environment Canada officials worked inio the evening to  review information before issuing a  Council  responds to  Davis Bay  highway  complaints  by Stuart Burnside  A controversial plan of Ihe  Ministry of Highways (M(.H)  lo run a major thoroughfare  across developed residenlial  and agricultural land in Wilson  Creek and Davis Bay may not  come lo pass if a recommendation from the Sechelt planning  committee is carried to fruition.  Sechelt council Wednesday  gave initial approval lo a recommendation calling for the  planned road lo be taken out of  Ihe municipality's Official  Community Plan (OCP).  The recommendation stemmed from a report by municipal planner Rob Buchan, who  said: "ll is evident by the  strong feeling expressed in Ihe  communily lhat this route is  highly unpopular."  Because Ihe recommendation involves a change lo the  OCP, it musl have the approval  of the SCRD and then go lo  public hearing before il  becomes a reality. On Friday,  however, Buchan told Ihe  Coast News all the paper work  could be completed and (he  road out of Ihe OCP by January.  "Because of Ihe amount of  resistance (lo Ihe proposed  road) I don't think there will be  any problem pushing Ihis  through," he said.  Instead of the proposed  route, Buchan said terms of reference were being drawn up for  a Land Use/Transportation  study (I.UTS) of Ihe area lo  determine an alternative location.  "This proposed highway has  been a spectre hanging over Ihe  existing residents since Ihe plan  was introduced in 197.1."  Buchan said. There are also  potential residenlial developments which have been held up  while ihe controversy persists.  Buchan said the departmenl  of highways was aware of the  recent developments and would  help finance the LUTS.  Final permits for Chaudiere sinking issued Friday night  final permit.  The injunction, filed by the band in  Vancouver against both the Artificial  Reef Society and the federal and  provincial governments, asked the court  lo slop the sinking scheduled for Saturday morning and lo slop Environment  Canada from issuing a final ocean  dumping permit for Ihe vessel, based on  both environmenlal concerns and  Sechelt's pending aboriginal land  claim.  ll also asked for a declaration of the  Sechelt's aboriginal rights to manage  territorial waters.  The requests were denied.  Following the decision. Monika  Acciaroli of Tidal Wave Diving commented, "I had no doubt in my mind."  Prior lo the hearing, lex Enemark of  the Artificial Reef Society said Ihe  group had been somewhat surprised by  Ihe move by the band.  "The impression that we had is Ihey  would not be asking for an injunction,"  he said. "Usually you don't leave going  to court to the last minute."  Enemark said the land claims issues  weren't ones which could be addressed  by the Artificial Reef Society and added  the group had been unsuccessful in  attempts to talk with the band.  Commenting before the outcome of  the case, Stewart Elgie of the Sierra  Legal Defence Fund said at least half a  dozen previous similar injunction cases  involving native land claims and commercial projects have been heard in BC.  Usually the cases concern logging  scheduled for areas claimed by native  bands as part of their territory.  In order lo win an injunction, said  Elgie, the band would have to prove  that if the order isn't issued, the territory under claim will suffer irreparable  harm.  Meanwhile, as Ihe court case was  before the judge on Friday, Environment Canada officials were also working up to the lasl minute reviewing  information before issuing a final permit to the reef society.  On Thursday, a report from an  inspector hired by the Save the Strait  Alliance gave the Chaudiere a less than  gleaming report, saying the vessel still  turn to page 2  Truce called over  watershed logging  Inventive engineering helps Karla Haerthe's 'King Michael' go the distance during Gibsons  Elementary's Inventor's Fair Yacht Challenge Wednesday. Joel Johnstone photo  by Jane Seyd  A court case over logging in  the Chapman Creek watershed  has been adjourned after  lawyers for Ihe Sunshine Coast  Regional District and International Forest Products agreed to  a cease fire this week, away  from the courtroom.  The regional district had  been seeking an _^^^  injunction against  Interfor and the Ministry of Forests to  prevent further logging in the watershed  until a proper management plan has  been completed.  Under the agreement reached, the  hearing has been adjourned to an unspecified date, with the    ______  understanding that no  logging will take place in the  watershed between now and  March, except to remove wood  which has already been cut by  Interfor. The company has also  agreed to give regional directors  Iwo weeks notice if any logging  is to start in the area.  The injunction hearing can  be brought back to court by the  regional district with seven days  notice to the company.  Jeremy Frith, a regional  director who sits on the Tetrahedron Local Resource Use  Plan committee, said the move  to postpone the hearing was  made on lawyers' advice, but  does not mean the regional district has dropped the idea of taking the issue to court if it's  required in the future: "We're  'It is unclear  exactly what  and who is  responsible  for what is  going on up  there'  ���Jeremy h'ritb  not implying in any way we     down.'  won't stop logging in the Chapman Creek watershed."  Ross Switzer, a lawyer for  Interfor, said since the current  IS-hectare cutblock has already  been logged and no further  activity is planned by the company over the winter, "both  sides agreed (the injunction)  wouldn't be necessary."           Frith   said   the  delay would also  give lawyers a better  chance to dig into  Ihe history of what's  happened in the  watershed. "It is  unclear exactly whal  and who is responsible at the end of the  day for what is going  on up there."  According to (toe-  uments unearthed by  lawyers so far, the  Chapman Gray Creek area was  declared a watershed reserve  under Ihe jurisdiction of Environment, Lands and Parks in  1975, with an agreement that no  cutting licences or clearing  would take place within that  area and that applications for  development from other ministries would not be accepted.  Said Frith, "Forestry has no  bloody business being in there,  let alone giving cutting permits  to anybody else."  The problem, he said, is a lot  of policy has been considered  open to interpretation.  "This situation has in the  past not been taken seriously by  the people in a position to do  so...Everybody says 'uh-huh',  bul the trees keep coming  Coast overdue for quakes and tremors, say seismologists  by Darah Hansen  It's not an exact science so  no one can say for certain, but  what Ihey are reporting is scary  enough.  Seismologists are saying that  Ihe Coast is overdue for an  earthquake and suggest that officials, from federal levels lo  local, should begin lo take the  need to prepare more seriously.  But there's no need for panic  on the Sunshine Coast, said  earthquake specialist at the  Provincial Emergency Program  (PEP) office, David Gronbeck-  Jones.  He said the earthquake most  likely to hit the area will slem  from Vancouver Island, sending  shock waves big enough only to  cause small mishaps, power outages and fires.  It's part of a sequence that  scientists predict will occur  every 30 to 35 years. Gronbeck-  Jones said the last to hit was in  1946 in the Cumberland/Courte-  nay area. Though the quake registered 7.3 on the Richter scale,  bigger thain the 1989 San Francisco quake, he said the most  damage done on this side of the  Coast was to cottage chimneys.  The 'big one', Gronbeck-  Jones said, is predicted on a 500  year cycle.  That's the one called the  Cascadia Subduction Zone,  located approximately 150 kilometres south west, in the Pacific  Ocean. And when it hits, it will  affect Ihe entire Coasl and will  likely register at 8.5 or greater.  Predictions of its effects  range from fires, to land slides,  to flooding. With the last quake  of this magnitude occurring  somewhere around the 1700s,  it's not expected again soon.  However, scientists say the risk  is still real. Seismological  reports indicate that the earth  plates are pressing together in  such a way that the quake will  be their only release.  "It's going to go," said Gron-  beck-Jones, it's only a matter of  time."  turn to page 2  Sechelt council explores solutions to youth situation  by Stuart Burnside  The Districl of Sechell is taking tentative steps toward curing Ihe perceived  problem of loitering youths within the  municipality, or at least toward helping  the youths to do something about the situation themselves.  Mayor Nancy MacLarty made a  motion al Wednesday's council meeiing  calling for the formation of a structured  Sechell youth council (SYC), comprising  the municipality's young people, which  would be responsible for working within  the communily to address youth needs.  "This would include all the municipality's (teenagers)," MacLarty said, "not  just Chatelech students."  Recently Chatelech student council  member Laura Zealand, speaking as a  youth representative, has been making  pleas for a lown-sponsored youlh centre.  MacLarty, however, says there are young  people around who have different ideas,  and they also should be  encouraged to participate in  any youth related decisions.  To that end, the first part  of MacLarty's motion  called for the SYC lo be  elected by all interested  teenagers, and then for a    chairperson to be elected from within the  SYC ranks.  MacLarty said the SYC could be run  much like a municipal council with a  mission statement, constitution and procedural rules. The group would also be  required to select from within the community at least two adult advisors.  "The effectiveness  of the idea...  would be up to  Sechelt's youths'  of Sechelt should provide up to $1,000  toward the formation of Ihe SYC.  In Ihe second pari of Ihe motion      MacLarty called, among  other things, for joint fund-  ing between Sechelt,  School Dislricl 46, businesses and other interested  parties for the hiring of a  project co-ordinalor to help    Ihe SYC "facilitate a comprehensive recreational program."  The SYC would be responsible for  managing all funds and would also, wilh  the help of their advisors, organise Iheir  own fundraising efforts. MacLarty said  the effectiveness of Ihe idea, in the end,  would be up to Sechelt's youths.  "If the young people don't wanl lo  For its part, MacLarty said Ihe Districl      form a youlh council, then Ihey won't  situation  ':  inside  form a youth council," MacLarty said,  "but I think it would be a good exercise  for them, and hopefully a democratic  cam 11      mm$  exercise.

And partially, they'll be get-  ling lhal soon, in lhe form of  lull-tune patrols and a constable  specially assigned lo handle all  cases from the area. Bul a separale detachment and a resident  potto force arc no! in the plans.  In the pasl year, bolh businesses and residents say there's  been an increase in vandalism,  shoplifting, and theft, says Dave  Orr. presidenl of the Pender  Harbour Chamber of Commerce.  A number of Ihose incidents  go unreported to lhe police, says  Jane Reid, director for Ihe area,  because of residents' past experience with lengthy police  response time. "A lol of Ihe people have given up calling," she  says. "When you need someone,  there's never any police  around "  Staff Sergeant Cam Reid of  Ihe Sechell RCMP detachment  says that problem can lum into a  cycle, because police resources  are partly determined by the  number of calls from an area.  "If we don'l have people calling  SUIT Sargeant Cam Reid  from Pender Harbour it gels less  attention from us."  In the pasl, he says, "often  we'd just respond lo a call."  Mike Miller, manager of  Sunsport Outfitters, says businesses on bolh sides of his store  have recently been broken into.  In some instances, the thieves  have been very selective, taking  only specific blades for particular chainsaws. Says Miller,  "...It's almost like somebody's  placed an order."  Tackle and rods have also  been stolen from boats tied up at  local docks. Comments Miller,  "We never used lo have lhal  problem before."  According lo police statistics,  criminal code offences in Pender Harbour are up from 14.1  last year to 159 in 1992 lo dale  and from 17 in Egmonl in 1991  lo 33 Ihis year. The biggest  increase is in theft, with 62 incidents in the area this year compared to last year's 42.  In response lo concerns, Sgl  Kcul says a full-lime police officer is now assigned during each  shift lo Pender Harbour, wiih  one constable handling all cases  fot ihe area.  lhal goes pari way to solving  the problem, says Orr. Bul residents would slill prefer a resident police force in Ihe area, lo  slop crime before il happens.  "People don't speed and Ihey  don'l drink and drive if Ihey see  a police car once in while," he  comments,  Mosi incidents happen after  people know Ihe police have  gone off shift, he says, which  means il's slill a good 30 minute  drive lo Pender Harbour - plenty  of lime for Ihe criminals lo be  long gone.  Sgt. Reid says communily  concerns of non-resident police  go buck a long way in Ihe area,  bin "il's more efficient to run il  as a combined detachment  (from Sechelt)."  While some community concerns can be worked out locally  without police involvement, in  Ihe case of criminal activity,  says Orr, "I don't believe tbe  majority of people wanl lo handle il themselves. Bul he adds,  "there are some people who feel  they're going lo have lo if we  don't gel more support."  Sechelt experiences rise in crime, violence  by Jane Seyd  Figures for Ihe year are in, and il looks  like activity is booming - but at the Sechelt  RCMP detachment that's not necessarily  good news.  "Everything is up," says Staff Sergeant  Cam Reid.  Total calls lo Ihe detachment increased  from 3792 in 1991 lo 4888 this year between  Egmont and Roberts Creek, the area served  by the Sechelt RCMP.  Included in those figures were increases  in both property offences (like vandalism  and theft), up from 484 last year lo 676 Ihis  year, and assaults, up from 94 last year to  132 this year so far.  "A lot of our domestic violence and  assaults are drug and alcohol related," says  Reid, who adds that all social service agencies on the Coasl are experiencing "really  high demands."  "Violence seems io be escalating," he  says. "There seems to be a serious lack of  respect for people and property."  To help deal with problems next year, the  detachment has recently added two new  police officers, Constable Kelly Watson,  who has been transferred from Port Hardy,  and Constable Norman Striker, who arrives  from the RCMP training college in Regina.  In the pasl year, says Reid, priority was  given to reducing Ihe number of break-ins  and traffic accidents.  Usually, says Reid, it tends to be younger  adults in their early 20s who run into trouble  wilh Ihe law. "ll seems lo be the ones who  aren't making the transition from youlh lo  responsible citizens."  Next year's priorities have not yel been  set, and Reid says police will consul! the  regional districl, municipality of Sechell and  the Sechelt Indian Band lo find out areas of  concern.  Meanwhile, Ihe Christmas counterattack  campaign against drinking driving is already  underway, wilh roadblocks set up throughout  Ihe season, especially on weekends. Wilh Ihe  help of new roadside screening devices,  police are picking up more people for  impaired driving, says Reid. adding, "We are  noi playing Santa Claus. No warnings."  Coast hospital, schools prepare where possible  from page I  "One Ihings for certain, by the time we reach 800 years is should  be expected - like tonight. But that's a long ways away yet.  But it's now been 300 years and we have entered the doorway into  lhat serious risk zone," he said.  He was quick to warn, however, that "just because the earth  shakes, doesn't mean il's the end of the world."  Preparation, Gronbeck-Jones said, is Ihe key.  On the Coast, some work has been done lo increase public awareness and stabilize public buildings.  Al St. Mary's Hospital, a disaster manual is in place to guide the  staff in the case of an emergency. While the manual is mainly specif  ic to gas and bomb threats and fires, administrator Ted Wright said he  feels through occasional mock disaster trials, the staff has indicated it  is capable of handling a number of other disasters.  "There are things we could do," he said, "The plan tells us what  we have to do in order to make things work and we can do il.  "Provided, we survive," he added.  Al Ihe schools, teacher and chair of the Districl Heallh and Safely  Committee. Ian Thomson said they are doing Ihe besl they can with  no money in the budget allocated for earthquake safely.

After Thursday night's big  explosion, the Needful Things  crew packed up quickly and left  town leaving in their wake a pile  of rubble where their once picturesque movie sets had been  and a debate among local merchants on the topic of profits.  Louise Hume, president of  the Gibsons Landing Merchants  Association, said the presence of  the movie company was a much  welcome change.  "I think it's exciling as far as  business is concerned. I've  enjoyed meeiing new people.  We've had some interesting and  talented individuals in our communily for lhe last little while."  Hilly Long al the Midnite  Market also said he had no complaints regarding Ihe film crew.  "I wish they'd come back,"  said an enthusiastic Fong. With  extended hours and Ihe addilion  of a cappuccino machine, Fong  said business at his store was  definitely up.  "You've got lo sell them  what Ihey want," said Fong.  The Omega Restaurant served up hot food and drink for crowds  waiting fur last week's special effects. Joel Johnstone pholo  of my locals haven't been  around."  Both businesses say Ihe  movie company was quick lo  reimburse them for lost revenue  and though Ihey wouldn't comment on how much money Ihey  received, bolh said the figure  was "fair".  Uul for Moi Ten and her staff  al Ihe Village Market, monetary  compensation wasn't the issue.  Ten said she felt insulted  when the crew asked her lo shut  out the lights of her store during  Bul not everyone saw the  same increase.  Manager of Gramma's Pub,  Elizabeth Cox, said business  was down over the last few  weeks. "It's been a hassle lo get  in here," Cox said, blaming  much of the lost revenue on lhe  lack of parking in and around  the building.  Hume also admitted a degree  of losl business at her store, The  Landing General Store, saying,  "While I've picked up some  business, I also know that some  film shoots and was oflen asked  noi to stand in front of her business And she tiled one instance  when production members look  a sign down from the root of Ihe  store without permission.  "They're noi being considerate," said Stacy Krinlila. speaking on behalf of Ten. "It's not a  mailer of cash, it's a mailer of  being polite."  Stewart Belhune, production  unit manager for Needful Productions, said these kinds of  concerns are what make the very  nature of Ihe movie business "a  tough slog.  "ll was very challenging to  balance everybody's needs  when you lake over in the way  we did." He said Ihe company  Iried Iheir besl lo be accommodating and considerate and fell  their overall impact on Ihe town  was positive.  But to Ihose expecting immediate profits, Belhune said,  that's not how it works. It's a  long-term venture, he said, predicting a tourist boom aller Ihe  movie opens July 199? in over  2,200 theatres across North  America.

Michael Shanks, decried  council's recently endorsed proposal for a new municipal hall  and library lasl Wednesday after  voting against il the week  before. He said council had  neglected to look deeply enough  into other options.  Shanks said if the plan for  two buildings along a strip of  the municipality's Block 7 property goes ahead, money could  be saved by financing both over  10 years, instead of financing  one over 10 years and Ihe second over 20 as is planned.  "There would be a saving of  between $390,000 and  $425,000," he said. "That fact  didn't receive consideration (by  council) and I'm upset that it  didpajj^, ���  As it stands, two buildings  are lo be built on a strip of  Block 7 running from Cowrie  Street lo Teredo Street. The  municipal hall building will be  financed over 10 years to avoid  going to referendum, while the  library is tentatively scheduled  to be financed over 20 years and  could require referendum  approval.  According to Mayor Nancy  MacLarty, a proposed municipal  hall, recreation cenlre and  library complex was defeated  five years ago through referendum because the cost was  deemed too high. "We don't  wanl to make that mistake  again," MacLarty said.  Shanks also said council  neglected to explore the possibility of combining the hall and  library in one building, despite a  fT  "i  1  ^mmttmtM  \  *,rV    "*,>    $       V  |  t*2��  ii  ^ Jill'  I   alttill  Michael Shanks Nancy MacLarty  the space needed for Ihe library  could as much as double in the  next 10 years, bul if housed in  the same building as Ihe municipal hall, expansion options      would be limited.  Shanks       said  Irtere WOUUt     exnansion   was   a  previous motion to do so.  "(The motion) specifically  stipulated that we would get  costs on two separate buildings  and on a combined  facility,"    Shanks      said, "That never  transpired.   We're  only looking into   beasavittgof. problem that cot^ld  >st estimates on Ihe i.^*... .. be pl��nucd for in oi>tV  building and that  cost saving was Ihe  bottom line. He said  it wasn't necessary  used for development and the  Cowrie Street portion for (Ihe  municipal hall)," he said.  MacLarty said such a plan  would limit the options for  future developments because the  only access would be from  Teredo and through Ihe Trail  Bay Mall parking lot. "If we  build only along Cowrie, il will  leave a sort of I. shape."  MacLarty said. "I think (Ihe  plan we have) would be more  preferable to developers."  Cllr. Art Whistler noted the  localion could still be changed  al a later date without seriously  affecting the overall engineering  and construction costs.  Shanks asked to have Ihe  matter pul on Ihe next finance  meeting agenda.  expansion  cost  Iwo separale buildings."  He noted Ihe cost  of building one facility would be "substantially less" than   ���������  building two.  MacLarty said there was no  point spending Ihe money for  two separale building plans  because both would require  engineer reports and construction cost estimales. "We're just  looking at ball park figures  here," she said.  "I don't see how we can  wasle our money on putting up  money for engineering plans  and so on (for two separate proposals), which is the only way  we're going to get a firm estimate." She also noted that, at  the rate Sechell was growing,  between  $390,000 and  $425,000'  -Michael Shanks to compile compiele  ��������������������������������� data on both projects. "Anyone on  Ihe street can tell what Ihe cosl  difference will be," he said.  In addilion, Shanks objected  to the decision to place the proposed buildings between Cowrie  and Teredo. He said when Teredo Street becomes Sechelt's  main thoroughfare, the property  value of the portion of Block 7  that bulls against it will rise,  making it more of a potential  money maker for the municipality.  "If we are truly looking for  Ihe 'biggest bang for our buck',  the Teredo portion should be  ITS FIMUXY HERE!

It started earlier this year.  The minute the cold weather brought slippery conditions to Coast roads. Coastal Roads, the private contractor now responsible for local highways maintenance,  came under fire for not doing an adequate job of ensuring  safe driving conditions. A number of cars spun off the  road on black ice and it was fortunate there were no serious injuries.  Arguing that drivers were going too fast for the road  conditions, the company did little to build public confidence that safety is its chief priority.  With a mandate to be ready whenever winter conditions deem it necessary to salt, sand or clear roads, the  keepers of local highway safety found it expedient to  proffer the lame excuse that crews were not scheduled to  go on 24-hour patrol until the day after the cold snap hit.  The contract, however, requires an approach that is  responsive to the tickle whims of the barometer rather  than the Fixed dates of a calendar.  The highways ministry, which is responsible for overseeing the contractor, has vowed that such laxity won't  happen again.  But similar complaints have become an annual winter  ritual across the province since the job of maintaining  public roads was turned over to the private sector four  years ago. In an effort to keep costs down, companies  have a lamentable tendency to cut corners, inevitably  leading vehicles, drivers and passengers into the ditch.  While on-going review of private highways maintenance is being carried out by the provincial government,  the ministry is unlikely to reassimie direct responsibility  for road maintenance when it is incapable of meeting  even its existing capital commitments.  The whole situation is a frail mix of government contracts, penny pinching companies and risk to human life.  Who's going to pay the price?  Kick 'em when  they're down  The Tory government last week doled out yet another  self-congratulatory display of how to smile while racking  up the national debt, now at a staggering $457 billion,  snowing once more that it is bereft of initiatives to bring  this dire legacy of overspending under control (growing  at a rate of $1,000 a second).  Unless you consider dipping deeper into the pockets of  the working poor an initiative. It is more akin to thievery,  the government's cruel ministrations to terminal eConorri-  ic illness. There is something truly machiavellian  (Mazankowskian?) about changes to Ihe Unemployment  Insurance Act that will eliminate benefits to those who  quit work or are fired for cause. This is, after all, supposed to be an insurance plan, and there are plenty of  legitimate reasons why an employee may choose to quit  work; an equal number of spurious "causes" an employer  may lay claim to in firing an employee.  Fully one third of the $8 billion trimmed from the budget last Wednesday will come off the backs of the unemployed, those already hardest hit by the deepening recession. And in spite of it all, the national deficit will still be  amount to $34.4 billion this year, $7 billion more than  earlier projections.  While the country lurches toward self-destruction, the  government finds its usual recourse in putting the boots  to the most disadvantaged.  NTeRest Rates .n canaoa  BlTAUlPPUNt \  letters  Protest GST  reading tax  Thousands of Canadians  including many of your readers  have written to federal finance  minister Don Mazankowski asking the government lo remove  the GST from reading materials  and received a form letter in  reply.  In this letter the minister tells  Canadians that "the traditional  (federal tax) rate on reading is  not zero," and claims thai publishers paid the old manufacturer's sales tax on a large number  of items, including paper.  Reading material was exempt  from ihe manufacturer's sales  tax at every stage of production,  including Ihe purchase of paper.  A sludy conducted by Woods  Gordon in 1988 found that the  'accidental' MST paid by pub- '  lisjhers amounted only to0.9 rot  1.5 percent. The finance depart- '  men! economic analysis unit  reached the same conclusion as  did former finance minister  Michael Wilson.  The GST Consumer Information Office at Consumer and  Corporate Affairs Canada concluded last year that this very  low level of accidental tax was  not a significant factor n the  price of reading material and  that the GST is therefore a  brand-new tax on reading.  Either the minister is genuinely unaware of the facts  regarding the old tax, or the  department of finance is consciously distorting these fads  because they cannot otherwise  defend ihis government's  actions in introducing the first  federal tax in Canadian history  lo apply to reading material.  The GST is the first federal  lax ever lo be collected on  books, magazines or newspapers. In its first year, Ihe GST  caused Canadian sales of books  to drop 10 per cent, sales of  magazines to drop 15 per cent  and the largest drop in Canadian  newspaper circulation in 50  years.  The frecfall continues in  1992. During Ihe lasl recession  and in the early, pre-GST  months of the current recession,  sales of all reading material  increased.  We agree wilh the government's slated goals of improving Canadian education, increasing literacy levels, encouraging  c6tiilttunication between Canadians and strengthening our  ' shara*d',t!i(lture.  The prime minister look a  sland in October 1990 when he  promised lo carefully review Ihe  tax on reading material after one  year.  It is essential that lhat review  be undertaken immediately and  lhal reading material be zero-  rated under the GST.

HARRY ALMOND  Roberts Creek  Dreaming of paradise aboard land-locked sailboat  My neighbourhood is typical of many in The  City. Older single-family houses creep cheek-by-  jowl along a street lined with car*, instead of trees,  illegal basement suites constitute the only cottage  industry, and everyone lives in fear of the monster  houses skulking about the perimeter.  It is a far cry, in other words, from my ideal of a  treed, two-acre plot with a partial view of mountains and water.  But this does not mean my neighbourhood lacks  all hope of redemption. In fact, there are indications a more congenial general atmosphere may be  just around the corner.  The corner is a few blocks over and three or  four blocks to the south. The street is much like my  own, with one exception: over there, under the  monkey puzzle tree beside a nondescript house,  sits a sailboat dreaming of bener days.  It is a smallish white vessel with blue trim,  minus a mast and with a hull sadly in need of tender loving care. If you saw this boat beside a house  in Gibsons, Pender Harbour or Egmont, you would  give it no more than a cursory glance.  But my neighbourhood is none of those places.  It is in The City, where sailboats perched on dry  land are about as common as authenticated sightings of Elvis. Here, sailboats are found only in the  ebbtide  d. macdonnell  water - unless they are under construction, in  which case they are confined to rented sheds in the  industrial section of some far-flung suburb.  So, to see a sailboat hoisted onto blocks without shouting distance of my home is cause to  rejoice. It means at least one of my neighbours has  discovered the Due meaning of west coast living -  and if there is one who has seen the light, there  may soon be t thers.  My dream is that one lone sailboat around the  corner will magically and mysteriously clone itself  many times ever in the months ahead, and creep  quietly into yaru after yard along the entire stretch  of cheek-by-jo' 1 houses facing my own.  I want it to breed, because my vision of Heaven  on Earth includes row upon row of land-locked  sailboats.  Why? Because Heaven is living on the west  coast. And boats define the best of life on the west  coast.  By that, I do not mean boats moored in a harbour or tied snug to a marina float. No - on this  j coast, the best and most appropriate use for a boat  is to hoist it into drydock, preferably beside a shed  in the backyard. (Some people award more points  for boats erected in front of the house, but purists  maintain this is showing off.)  In some quarters, paying your dues on this coast  is measured in terms of years spent in the region;  in others, it is defined by the number of obscure  communities you have called your own. In my  camp, the true test is owning a boat. It means you  accept the coast on its terms, not on your own.  But there are rules. The purpose of the boat is  not to be sailed, but to remind you of the reason  you live on the coast, be it quality leisure time, the  chance to commune with the elements or an opportunity to turn a dream into reality. As such, its  proper place is in the yard, within easy sight of  your chair beside the kitchen window.  Also, a boat is not to be worked on. It sits in the  yard as insurance against the day when you will be  asked to do something you would rather avoid.  "I'm sorry," you say, "but I have to stay and work  on the boat." Presto - one more pressure disappears.  Finally - and most important - a boat must be  recognized for what it really is: a bigger and better  lawn ornament. The area around a boat must never  be kept tidy, but used to store all manner of odds  and ends, from old boards and scraps of metal to  empty 45-gallon oil drums and used machinery  parts. Think of il as an opportunity to make both an  artistic and a personal statement.  As well, a yard boat is a good barometer of people, especially if you have more than one. You can  loan spares to new acquaintances and see how they  treat it: their actions will tell you all you need to  know about their suitability as west coast friends  and neighbours.  If only life were so simple here. In the city,  owning a boat is viewed as either an investment in  quality time or a sure sign of mid-life crisis.  Instead of signifying a yearning for a relaxed  lifestyle, it represents one more trinket in a growing chain of assets.  But there is hope, as expressed by the boat  around the corner from my house. Just by being  here, it shakes a fist at inner-city conventions. May  many more be raised before too long.

The  house I usually live in is being  raised off Ihe ground before my  very eyes, about 10 feet now,  and another place for who  knows who is going to be built  under it. All sorts of conclusions  about Ihe developing Sunshine  Coast might be drawn from this  simple fact.  I am in Ihis, in fact, rather  fun situation due mainly to  wanting to keep Ihe telephone  going A long extension, it  seemed to me, might be  arranged bul il is not strictly  kosher and Ihe less said aboul it  the better.  The trailer itself has been  very successfully cosied up by  Scoll lhe contractor on the site.  Everything possible. I would  say. has been lavished on this  trailer. The little curtains around  tlie windows have been washed  and ironed.  There is new carpeting on the  floor and the telephone, after  some initial struggle with Held  (battery) phones, seems to be  resolved. I have television and  radio and a propane stove and a  healer and a table and this good  old typewriter, and the dawn  comes up at around 7 am as it  does all over.  Nonetheless, there is no  question lhal living in this trailer is in fact different to living in  whal you might call a normal  way. No hot waler, for example.  A wavering of Ihe whole thing  when the wind gets up. A strictly limited scope for pacing up  and down. It's camping, of  course, but in my case  unplanned.  Inevitably I suppose, you  think of people who have lived  in this kind of caravan, George  Borrow for example. I don't  know how many people among  the possible readers will remember George Borrow. Me was a  middle class English type in  Victoria times who, after  school, cut off and went with a  band of gypsies.  This was strictly a non-thing  to do in those days, but Borrow  did it, fought fights at fisticuffs,  and became a member of Ihis  very exclusive tribe. His book,  Romany Rye. might very well  be looked for by people who  roam the second hand stores.  They were tinkers. They  dealt in tin and fixed people's  pots and so on along the way.  They were also notable pilferers, and horse traders, and their  womenfolk told fortunes (cross  my palm wilh a piece of silver).  They were, as many people  have said, quite charming, but  they were definitely 'foreign';  and what with Iheir pilfering  and their artful horse trading  and their fortune telling, and  their preference for living in a  vagabond way around campfires  in dells and at the edges of  forests, etc., they came to be  looked at with some suspicion,  In a nutshell  Special Touches  CLEANING SERVICES  wishes a very  Merry Christmas 8c  Happy New Year  to all our clients.  885-4457  if not alarm.  They were, however, certainly survivors and they carried on  Iheir caravan life for hundreds  and hundreds of years. Stories  grew up about them all over  Europe and the British Isles.  Plays and operas had gypsy  themes and characters. A  favourite one had a child stolen  away by the gypsies who turned  out later to be the duke of somewhere or other.  They were sufficiently a factor in the '40s for Hitler to make  a determined effort to gas them  all in his ovens, but clearly a  goodly number survived, but  what sort of life you wonder can  they live now.  They have a recognized king  we understand, and he lives, I  think, somewhere in Manhattan  these days but where do they  find the roads for their great  horses to amble along, drawing  Ihe caravans on their endless  migrations?  Where also do they find the  dells and dingles, just off a main  road, where they like to camp?  And what sort of a life can you  stuart nutter  make these days as an itinerant  tinker? There are slill Italian  knife-sharpeners walking up  and down the city streets ringing Iheir handbells, but when  was Ihe last time a dusky character wearing a red bandana  handkerchief round his neck  asked if you had any pots to  mend?  Outside Ihis possible caravan  the house has now been raised,  carefully, an inch and a bit on  this side and an inch and a bil  on lhat, as far up as it's going to  go.  A brisk hammering now goes  on from 8 am on as the walls of  the new place get built and take  the weight above, and the house  as we knew it is firmly fixed  nearer the iree tops. An unusual  enough kind of move, I suppose.  However, my motorless and  horseless caravan here can still  give me some feeling of being  on the good old, romantic old,  open road.

Sunday 12 ��� 4pm ___��  Human rights group seeking retrial in Minnesota  hy Keith Thirkell  The local chapter of Amnesty International has taken up the cause of Leonard Peltier,  a Lakota Sioux from South Dakota who is  serving c��tt**eoutive life sentences after conviction on charges of murdering Iwo FBI  agents on the I'ine Ridge Reservation in  1976. ���  Amnesty is currently promoting an  Indigenous Peoples Campaign, emphasizing  Ihe impact of 500 years of European oppression on the aboriginal peoples of the western  hemisphere, and the Peltier case has a local  twist.  Peltier had lived in Canada most of his  life. After the murders he fled to Canada and  was finally tracked down by the RCMP.  What ensued was an extremely complicated  and controversial extradition process. The  minister of justice at the time under Pierre  Trudeau was Ron Basford, who now calls  Halfmoon Bay home.  Amnesty International has taken up the  case arguing lhat there is substantial evidence to indicate the FBI fabricated essential  evidence which prompted Basford to  approve the extradition.  education notes  Basford, retired from politics, refused  comment on the matter when contacted at  his home.  Amnesty is also concerned that after  Peltier's extradition, he did not receive a fair  trial. The human rights group is pressuring  for a retrial in Minnesota.  The minister of justice at  the time under Pierre  Trudeau was Ron Basford,  who now calls Ha\fmoon  Bay home'  Originally three suspects were arrested in  relation to the murders, bul two were acquitted when evidence showed thai FBI agenls  fired first and the Indians replied in "justifiable self-defence." But the judge in Peltier's  case rejected the self-defence argument.  Said local Amnesty president Shirley  Hall: "The local A.I. group has resolved lhat  we would like to bring M.P. Jim Fulton to  the Sunshine Coast for a presentation concerning this matter and see if he could per  suade Mr. Basford to publicly acknowledge  that an error of justice may have been committed."  Fulton is spearheading a campaign by 55  Canadian MPs which is petitioning the US  governmenl lo hold a retrial and a new extradition hearing in Canada. One of Ihose MPs  is Warren Allmand, Basford's colleague and  solicitor general at the time of the original  hearings. Fulton has responded to the request  saying he wants to come to the Coast to discuss the case.  Board elected  The discussion about Peltier surfaced at  the local chapter's recent annual general  meeting, at which a new board was elected.  Hall, who is also on Amnesty's national  board, was elected chairperson and Rob  Borque was elected vice-chair. Jay Hamburger was elected to handle the dossier on  prisoners of conscience.  Amnesty will also be holding a Write-a-  thon Dec. 10 (International Human Rights  Day) at Trail Bay Mall in Sechelt. There will  be a raffle with prizes by local artists and at  least one bottle of Hall's world famous  Egmont Tonica blackberry wine.

School Board treasurer Tim  Anderson announced at last  week's regular school board  meeting that funding for educa-  tion will probably see no  increase next year.  "The message we got," said  Anderson "is, if at all, there will  be very little increase for the  district next year."  Though the spending projections are as yet unconfirmed by  members of the ministry's treasury board, Anderson said the  suggestion was in response to  large deficits predicted over the  next two years.  The figures indicate that  should educational spending  remain unchanged, deficits of  $2.6. billion and $4 billion are  projected for 1993/4 and  1995/6, respectively.  Anderson wrote in his report:  "Education represents some 20  per cent of the government  expenditures and, as measures  are introduced to curb the  deficit, it can be reasonably  expected that the system will be  affected by spending reductions."  Anderson later said he was  reluctant to say what might be  cut from the local budget which  presently receives a total of  $20,267,923. He said il could  affect "a whole realm of things.  "It's really hard to actually  speculate until it's coming down  the pike," he said.  Historically, he added, the  board has always tried to maintain a sufficient number of  classroom teachers.

School News  The school's Christmas  Concert to be held on the  evening of Tuesday, Dec. IS  will also have a dress rehearsal  on the afternoon of Monday,  Dec. Mat 1:15pm.  Parents and family are  encouraged to attend the  rehearsal to help alleviate the  problem of overcrowding that  has arisen in the past few years  at the concert. As the school  grows this has become a rather  serious problem.  Seating capacity will be  closely monitored this year and  emergency evacuation routes  have been chosen.  The old days of standing 10  deep at the back of the gym are  over and the school has been  forced to limit attendance. Consequently school staff have  decided to provide each family  with two tickets for the evening  concert and ihose who don't  use theirs are asked to turn  them back in for re-issue to  other families.

Very simply, our  Senior Citizen has accumulated significant equity in his home. He  wants to stay in the home but the taxes and maintenance are now  exceeding his ability to pay. In addition, physically doing the  maintenance is now beyond him. Normally, Ihe result is a sale and  the loss of his home  Using the SALE-LEASEBACK technique, an investor purchases the  home and leases back the dwelling to the former owner at a fixed  amount tor an agreed upon term. 1 he Senior gels his equity in cash,  is relieved of the maintenance worry and gels to stay in the same  home The investor gets a realistic return on his investment plus the  appreciation on the home. Its a win/win situation lor the right person.  In Canada, this is being done but not very often Generally, the  Seniors are reluctant to sell because they don't want to lose the  ownership ot their homes.

Joel Johnstone pholo  sechelt scenario  by Deanna Lueder, 885-7365  Sechelt is beginning to look festive as merchants and families decorate their stores and  homes for Christmas.  Yuletide carols and songs can be heard in the  shops and a wealth of gifts and toys are displayed  to entice everyone. For many, in these difficult  economic times, these displays are fun to look at  but their purchases are fewer and more carefully  selected.  Home made gifts  Homemade gifts are appreciated but it is not  always possible to find necessary handicraft supplies. This surprises me, considering the large  number of people in the community involved in  handicrafts. For some, any purchases are out of the  question and the Elves Club then fulfills its function. Application forms for hampers are now in the  local newspapers and at depot sites.  Attention bargain hunters  There are some bargains for the careful shopper. Harmony, the duo of Reg and Lynne Dickson,  released a lape called Christmas With Harmony,  which previously sold several thousand copies. It  is available again at many outlets on the Coast for  $10. The benefit lo the buyer is a collection of  Chrislmas music. The benefit to the community is  that the funds raised will be going to Breakaway,  the alcohol and drug rehabilitation program for  datris bay nevus  youth. Local quillers, the Fat Quarter Quilt Group,  is raffling off a beautiful quilt with funds raised  also going to Breakaway. Tickets are available at  Sew Easy in Sechelt.

The Reifel Wildlife Sanctuary does not  want him and says his natural habitat while in the north gets as cold  as it will ever get here. The crane hangs around the pond along with  ducks and four turtles.  The turtles began as a pair left in the pond by former residents.  These Iwo have produced a little one two years in a row. Now the  adults are as big as dinner plates. At the moment they are in the mud  bottom of the pond for the winter.  My reporter also told me an interesting account of watching ducks  nest around the pond. At one point, two years ago, just after one duck  had settled on a clutch of 20 eggs, the Sechelt Indian Band moved in  with huge equipment. They off-loaded and prepared to build a levee  to stop flooding in the area. My reporter approached Chief Paul and  pointed out the sitting duck. He asked how long it would be before  the eggs hatched and was told Ihree to five weeks. Chief Paul immediately ordered all the equipment back onto the trucks and withdrew,  not to return for five weeks. Thank you, Chief Paul.

LOG  BUYING  STATION  Camp Run  CEDAR-RR-HEMLOCK  886-7033  ������Si Coast News,  December 7,  1992  community  Balma's vision a product of self-awareness  by Darah Hansen  Life began after 40 for  Donna Balma.  ll look a radical change in  lifestyle, a change in physical  environment, separation from  her family, iwo years of therapy  and five years of isolation.  But now, at Ihe age of 57,  Donna Balma, Ihe artist, has  emerged with her own artistic  vision.  The evidence is ihere in the  paintings and sketches scattered  throughout her Roberts Creeks  sludio. It's in the pottery on the  table and in the cupboards, and  on Ihe canvas of Ihe as yet  unfinished works.  ll can be strange, she admits.  She points up above the  kitchen lable lo two works in  black and white. She said Ihey  were part of her first show. Each  sketch reveals a different version of a fool in a cast. She'd  broken her fool, she said, and  ���pent lhe rest of the summer  drawing il.  Around lhe corner is a more  exotic, erotic version of the  accident: a woman bathed in an  erotic green light, lying down,  naked except for the cast on her  foot.  Her subjects are chosen  instinctively, she said, providing  a combination of religious zeal  and sensuality.  Bul she hopes there is a little  humour in everything she does  loo. "I think my work always  has a layer of absurdity to it,"  she said.  Almost hidden among other  papers on the wall, a cartoon  head of a woman peers out. The  words 'If I hear the word Environment one more time I'll  puke' come from her mouth.  Balma laughed at the memory of when she drew that. It was  all she could do after trooping  through the Caren Range with a  group of artists in the pouring  rain looking for ancient cedars.  "It was loo hilarious for me,"  she recalled. "I couldn't do anything else except some stupid  thing like that."  The comfort with which she  talks about the work, il seems as  though she's been at it all her  life. And though she admits that  she's always felt she was artistic, she'd never picked up the  paint brush seriously until after  she was 40 years of age.  That's when she came back  to Ihe Sunshine Coast from England where she'd lived with her  husband and daughters.  It was 1974, she said, looking  the date up on a ceramic plate  her husband had made commemorating their return and her  first impressions of the place  were negative.  Coast artist Donna Balma (left) receives the (Jillian Lowndes  Award from Joan Lowndes. Joel Johnstone photo  "I hated it," she said. "I absolutely loathed it. After 15 years  in England, I'd forgotten how  uncivilized and raw it was."  But just by staying that feeling changed. She said she began  to feel the sexuality of the land  in all its rawness.    "It's too sexy,"  she said. "This is  where I discovered  myself as a woman,  as a  being.1  She'd never  experienced that  feeling before, she  said. "All my ^___  female role models  vanished very quickly."  Her mother died when she  was seven and, shortly after, so  did her Grandmother. Lacking  the important female influence,  brought up by her strict Italian  father, she felt enormous  amounts of sexual confusion.  Add to that the social expec  I bad to  rediscover the  female, gender, person I'd been  before my  mother died'  ���Donna Htilma  little credibility as a woman, and  the confusion doubled.  A product of the Beat Generation, Balma said she delighted  in the Jack Kerouac style of living: smoking, drinking black  coffee and being "heavy". In        many   ways   she  identified with his  male heros and kept  herself free of  women's frivolities.  But at the same  time she was slill  regarded as "her  husband's wife" and  "molher to her chil-       dren."  The end result  was what she described as a  "very schizoid sort of trip.  "I felt like a piece of shit,"  she said. "I had to rediscover the  person I'd been before my  mother died."  Her eldest daughter left home  first. Then it was her turn,  though at first she didn't know  tations of the time that gave her      she was leaving. She went to  Vancouver to gel a job. Her husband interpreted that action as  leaving him, she said, and he  wenl to the United Slates.  Alone, she said she felt like  she was 18 again. She couldn't  make up her mind as lo which  course to follow.  Prom Vancouver, she went lo  Toronto lo become a registered  massage therapist. From Toronto back lo Vancouver to become  a writer of short stories and  radio plays to which she devoted nearly 10 years of her life.  "Looking back I should have  not given that length of lime lo  writing. When you don't start  life unlil after 40, you don'l  have a lot of time lo wasle. No,  not wasle - lo indulge yourself."  Bul she thought if she was  going to pursue writing seriously, she would have lo go to  school.  Not accepting that option,  she chose, finally, lo paint.  It was then she came back to  Roberts Creek and for five years  locked herself away, isolating  herself against external influence.  It was a difficult, but necessary move, she said, because of  the many social influences that  had become ingrained within  her, obscuring the true images.  She recalled the first time she  made a life drawing of a man,  "my vision was a big cover up  for my emotions. I absolutely  could not see genitals. I would  look through them.  Finally, a friend said to me:  'Look, if you're going to draw a  penis, you have to look al one."  Her companions became the  trees and the "guiding spirits" of  the four women artists she'd  invited in to help shape her art  and her femininity - Emily Carr,  Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keefe  and Barbara Hepworth.  The need for that kind of isolation is now past. She gels out  now to mix with neighbours, her  daughters and her new grandsons.  That says to her that she's  come unto her own and Balma  says she's comfortable with the  vision she's created and with the  path she chose to achieve il.  "Life experience is very  important to me," she said. "We  can all try to imagine something  but it doesn't take the place of  experience."  She's into large work now. A  huge collage of herself and  friend, Mandad, sits in the studio, bursting forth with colour,  awaiting the finishing touch.  "It has a sense to me of  'overwhelmingness'," Balma  said. "I find life overwhelming  and I want it that way. I want it  all."  Music society presents Yuletide Pops Concert  Christmas is coming, less  than a month.

These days, making quick pencil strokes  over a drawing in his Gibsons studio, or  talking about his trip to view lhe Gulf War  up close, Chaplin still gives off an aura of  angular intensity.  Amongst the pencils, magazine clippings,  air brush nozzles, spider plants and a complicated filing system sel up against one wall of  his sludio, not all of Chaplin's recent works  reflect Ihe scenes of exploding Armageddon  for which he's known, though. Instead, there  is a bear crossing n fallen log in the Car-  manah, the cool sweep of a glacier and the  intricate form of sandstone on Penman  Island: beautiful and solitary.  For Chaplin, however, drawings from his  "ecological" art and his lurid scenes of  nuclear destruction are part of the same  concern with survival.  For over 25 years, Chaplin has used his  art to light everything from air pollution, oil  supertankers, global warming, and the'arms  build-up to "working in unsafe conditions,  ingesting tons of chemicals."  Often that's meant his paintings aren't  comfortable lo look al: in one painting,  "Feast", a starving child watches while a  vulture rips the guts oul of fallen soldier.  Chaplin doesn't offer apologies. "Il's the  duty of art lo reflect the times we live in," he  says. "If we don't deal with it, we grow up  with twisted minds and we go into denial.  "It's a way of saying 'This is your fate' ...I  offer Ihe pictures to ram it down their eyeballs."  Perhaps Ihe most dramatic example of  this has been Chaplin's "ail nuko" series of  paintings, depicting explosions of billowing  mushroom clouds and the glow of radiation  dispersing over many of the world's major  cities.  "Nuclear war was always one of my concerns. I felt other people were putting all this  effort into ignoring it," says Chaplin.  The first painting, "Getting Bombed in  Vancouver," was done as a joke in the mid  1970s. Since then, the series has evolved  into an almost 20-year project, including 18  finished paintings and 10 more currently in  the works.  Not everybody has appreciated having  their social consciences prodded.  Some, like the Disney corporation, threatened Chaplin with lawsuits after he painted  Mickey Mouse watching a nuclear explosion  over Fantasyland.  Others have objected to images like a  mushroom cloud fanning out over the head  of a crucified Christ behind the Vatican.  These days, Chaplin doesn't play up his  nuclear art to the same extent he used to.  "You can only nuke so many cities in the  world before people start blaming you for  Iheir problems," he says.  But he hasn't stopped painting the series,  and has also spent over $60,000 showing his  exhibition in cities worldwide.  "What keeps me going is they don't give  up," says Chaplin. Even wilh the end of the  Cold War, he says, "Every time I turn on the  news there's another country that has  acquired nuclear weapons...It's not over. It's  gotten vastly more unstable."  During the Gulf War two years ago,  Chaplin travelled to Jordan with his "art  nuko" series, and al one point set up studio  in the lobby of his hotel, where - horrified by  the burning oil wells - he painted "Stop The  Black Rain." In that picture, black clouds  billow above an earth bleeding red, and  snakes of charcoal drip over the bruised  horizon.  Chaplin is the first to admit lhat like other  events he's staged for Ihe media, "Really  what it amounted lo was a piece of performance art...It does no good to be a poet  wandering in the woods if you have no audience."  For years Chaplin has done some of his  own "wandering in the woods" near a concrete studio/bunker on the Skcena River,  where in time off from drawings of destruction, he's been inspired to paint northern  scenes like the Bear Glacier, the Stikine ice  cap, and a wilderness scries combining Bate-  man-style realism with the airbrush techniques of fantasy illustration.  The rest of lhe lime he now spends on the  Sunshine Coasl, alter moving from Vancouver two years ago. "The dumbest thing 1 ever  did was not come here immediately," says  Chaplin, of his time in the Lower Mainland  after leaving Detroit over 25 years ago.  "Vancouver is a horrible place. I can't work  there very well."  Often working on several hundred drawings at once, Chaplin works up to a full -  sized painting gradually, incorporating  Because ot both his suDjeciirialler and his  use of airbrush painling, still noi widely  accepted in fine art circles, "the galleries  won't handle my stuff," says Chaplin. "So I  have lo be my own sales rep."  Some of Chaplin's original art now goes  for $15,000, bul it hasn't made him rich.  To help finance his paintings, Chaplin has  occasionally applied his training as a commercial artist to illustrations for Playboy,  Budweiser, and the Vancouver trade and  convention centre among others.  "Anybody who comes up to me with  enough money, I'll paint anything they  wanl," says Chaplin. But at the same time,  he acknowledges, "you can't call the military  industrial complex the most evil thing in the  world and expect them to give you a pay-  cheque."  Despite the overt messages in much of his  art, Chaplin is the first to contend, "Nothing  influences people that much.  "You don't play 'Born on the 4th of July'  to a group of Vietnam vets and they change  to the other side...but it's whatever you can  do.  "My other choice was not to do anything.  And I wouldn't feel as good about that."  %Sum@%��  ��� 23 Modern Rooms  ��� Kitchen Units - by week or month  Colour Cable T.V.   ��� Full Bath & Shower  Direct Dial Phones ��� Reasonable Rates  886-2419 ��� Sunshine Coast Hwy.

"One of the things I have a  problem with is I saw my parents do it...My dad's an alcoholic..A lol of limes we see our  parents doing it and we feel ils  okay for us to do it."  On the topic of wrestling,  Wilson stressed lo students that  Olympic style wrestling is different from the kind practiced  on TV by the likes of Hulk  llogan.

Learn How to Play  Bridge or How to Play  Better: Part VU  We saw how we can open the  bidding when we have five  cards in a major suil (we play  'five card major' system) and  enough points.  But what if we have the  points without a five card  major? That is where the  'minor' suits (clubs and diamonds) come into play.  The principle is to bid the  longer minor and hope our partner 'the responder', will show  Us a major suit (four cards or  longer) which we will be able to  support (raise) and thus arrive al  Going Away  on Vacation?

Time lo practise: with a 52  card deck deal yourself four  hands of 13 cards each and see  if ymi*a��mjien the bidding with  any Mt&them.  Pretend the remaining three  are your partners and try to  come up with the correct  response to each one of them  using the four questions mentioned in the last issue.  If you cannot find a suitable  opening, switch a few cards to  make one.  This exercise is especially  valuable in creating no trump  opening hands where you have  to watch Ihe point requirements  and the number of cards in each  suit.

Learn How to Play  Bridge or How to Play It  Better - Part VIII    lii  Now we come to the crucial  stage in the bidding sequence!.  We have our responder as the  captain steering us to the right  contract and we, as the openers,  have the assignment of  'describers', giving our partner  further description of our hand.  We do that by using a set of  four questions:  1. Can I support responder's  major? 2. Can I name a new suit  (at least four card holding) at  the one level? 3. Do I have a  balanced hand? 4. Should I  name a new suit at the Iwo  level? and as soon as we get a  yes answer, we make Ihe appropriate bid.  Which is the appropriate bid?  We classify our hand as 'minimum' (13 to 16 points including  suit lengths), medium (17 or  18), maximum (19 to 21). THe  limitation for the minimum  hand rebid is that you are not to  name a higher ranking suit at  Ihe two level than the one originally opened.  Medium hand is allowed to  name a higher ranking suit if it  has to go to the Iwo level and  the maximum hand cannot only  bid a higher ranking suit but  must also bypass one level (so  called a jump shift).  So practice this and I will  give you a test when I come  back.  The writer will be defending  the country's honour in a tournament in Honolulu, Hawaii and  will return after the holidays.

While the  Gibsons to Port Mellon area  was least affected, Keats Island,  Gambier and the east Egmont  area went without power for  several days.  There will be another elk  trata*****>al**-**a**a i||> Coast early in  I9l��. Cbnservation Officer  Jamie Stephen reports that  Western Pulp Ltd. owners of (he  mill at Woodfibre, have agreed  lo be the sponsors of Ihe project. There have been two others  transfers on the Coast - one in  1938 and the most recent in  February of this year, 1987.  10YEARS AGO  The official dedication of a  $7.6 million effluent outfall dif-  fuser at Port Mellon was the  culmination of a $12 million  upgrading program to bring the  effluent systems into tune with  the Waste Management Branch  regulations. The milestone project was completed under difficult technical and economic  conditions, but Canfor President  Bill Hughes pointed out "We  have an obligation to protect the  environment and we will con  tinue to fulfill the obligation."  20 YEARS AGO  For the first time in five  years the SCRD board has  avoided an election. Three seals  were open in areas B, D and F  but in each case the nominee  won the seat by acclamation.  25 YEARS AGO  Money with which to construct the long awaited bypass  from the Langdale lerry Terminal to the Sunshine Coast Highway behind Gibsons will be in  this year's provincial government budget. It is expected that  work on the bypass will begin  early next spring.  35 YEARS AGO  The question of a liquor outlet in or close to Sechelt has  been taken up by a member of  the Board of Trade. The question was tabled for further discussion.  40 YEARS AGO  Equipped with borrowed hip  waders, Tony Gargrave, MLA  for Mackenzie riding, travelled  from Port Mellon to Gibsons  over the Port Mellon roadway  on Monday morning this week.  Accompanying him on the one  and ihree quarter hour trip was  Norman Christie, general foreman for Maxwell Construction.  45 YEARS AGO  The Sechell Board of Trade  has telegraphed the provincial  Ministry of Public Works,  requesting an immediate survey  on a coastal road from Halfmoon Bay to the Sechelt-Pender  Highway.  by Joyce Ostry  The New Year's Eve celebration will start with a sit-  down dinner followed by a  dance from 9 pm to I am with  music by the Jack Bourne  Group.

While searching in the recipe  file for Christmas goodies that  come from the kitchen, I came  across this poem in honour of  grandmothers:  This l*ns always puzzled me,  Just how much is a pinch?  These recipes of dear  Grandma's  Surely are no cinch.  A "snip" of this, a "dab" of that,  A "lump" of something else.  Then "beat it for a little while,"  Or, "stir unlil it melts."  I have to be a wizard to  Decipher what she meant,  By all these strange proportions  In her cook book, worn  and bent.  How much nutmeg in the  doughnuts?

Charles Hart photo  Legion auxiliary tending  to student's special needs  For a special needs child with poor visual coordination and impaired motor skills, the complex  task of writing presents an enormous challenge.  Such was the case for Robert Soumang at Cedar  Grove Elementary school, a perfectionist student  whose most determined writing efforts would lead  inevitably to dissatisfaction, anger      and frustration.  That was before Soumang began  working with a lap-lop computer.  "He was being pulled out of regular class," says his mother, Lori  Mahar. "Wilh his regular writing  ability, he wasn't able to keep up      and the frustration level was fantastic. Now he can keep up, take his work home.  Without it he couldn't gel an education."  Soumang is one of the lucky ones. His mother  approached the Legion Ladies Auxiliary of the  Sunshine Coast and the combined auxiliaries (Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Pender Harbour,  Powell River and Pender Harbour) decided their  special zone project for lhe year would be lo raise  the needed funds for Ihe computer.  The local RCMP auxiliary look on a similar  w^jeeeaew eeeeae_w*w  'It's been a bell  ofstruggle for  this Md'  - lori Mabnr  project last year.  "We want to start helping special needs children," says Legion auxiliary zone commander Pat  Schindel, "because the government is doing nothing for Ihis at all."  The lack of funding lo properly integrate special    needs sludenis into Ihe school system is underlined by Cedar Grove  principal Jim McGowan. "The  amount of extra money needed for  special education kids to get the  same education as everybody else  jusl isn't there," he says.          "There's no doubl that at least six  others in this school could benefit  from lap-top computers."  A grateful Mahar is convinced that providing  the right technology will make all the difference  for her son, and for other students trying to overcome disabilities.  "It's been a hell of struggle for this kid," she  says.  "Without the commitment of teachers and principals these kids wouldn't have an education.  They'd just end up on welfare."  Recently Ihere have been  several sets of Christmas lights  taken from residents of  Redrooffs.  The culprit (s) appear lo be  focusing on lhe Fawn, Evans,  and Lohn Road areas, bul are  not necessarily confined to these  areas.  It appears the major purpose  behind these senseless Ihefls is  simply lo smash the lights.  RCMP are interested in any  information that will assist in  locating these culprits who are  stealing teh spirit of Christmas  for many of the residents of the  Redrooffs area.
