The popular Raging Grannies, dressed in red  and white and carrying miniature flags, added a couple of their  original ditties and several children joined the adults.  In an interview with the Coast News, Catherine McManus said  the idea originated with her father in Ontario who wrote a letter to  the editor of the Ottawa Citizen.  The letter put forth several ideas for solutions to problems facing the country and was chosen by the newspaper as their 'letter of  the day'. It was picked up and reprinted by several smaller papers  and elicited considerable response from readers.  "People kept phoning him and saying 'you sound as if you're  thinking the way we are'" said McManus. "The upshot of it all  was, several people got together to work out ways of positive  action."  McManus said the original organizing group wanted some kind  of symbolic gesture that had nothing to do with royal commissions  or any other official activity but something everyone could do in  their own home towns.  "They decided that singing '0 Canada' on New Years day in  front of a municipal building would be the perfect thing," she said.  The idea caught on, with friends and family spreading the idea  across the country, Groups of people gathered for little ceremonies  in such widely scattered towns as Whitehorse and Gibsons.  "Sadly, 1 heard that the closer you got to Ottawa the more apathy there was," said McManus ruefully. "Conversely, the further  away, the more people care!"  McManus hopes that a new trend has been started.  "I talked to my father at the end of the day to compare notes,"  she said, "and he said 'why don't we do it again at Easter?'  "1 think that's a good idea. With all the problems facing Canada  in 1992 any opportunity for people to be positive is a good thing.  I came away from our little ceremony realizing people really do  care. We may fight and argue, but basically we get along (with  each other)."  Coast residents of all ages sing at Gibsons town hall as part of a locally organized national effort to mend  Canada's unity problems. Joel Johnstone photo  Looking back on a year of controversy  and change for the Coast  The Sylvey family - Rob, May, and son Tyler - heralded the new year with a welcome  to Krista Patricia Silvey, the first baby born on the Sunshine Coast in 1992. Resting  peacefully in her new carseat courtesy of the British Columbia Medical Association,  the 9 lb. 3/4 oz (4.41 kg) baby girl can pinpoint her birth at 10:04 pm New Year's  Day. The BCMA presented 86 carseats across the province on this occasion to promote  safe care of infants. Joel Johnstone photo  Pungent aroma from mill  is being 'wrestled with'  by Stuart Burns! d��  The president of Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper says the  steps have been taken to correct a problem with offensive  gases leaking out of the Port  Mellon mill.  President Bill Hughes told  the Coast News that reports of  pungent odours emerging from  the mill just prior to Christmas  stemmed from a problem with  "rupture discs in the concentrated non-condensible gas  system."  In that system, by-product  gases are collected and stored  so that they can be burned, as  part of increasingly strict controls on mill emissions.  "The problem we've had,"  Hughes said, "is that, because  the gases are combustible, you  must have rupture discs. If  there should be a spark or  'It stemmed from  a problem with  rupture discs'  something then, rather than  have things blow up, you  relieve the pressure." The  discs, according to Hughes,  have a strength of 10 pounds  per square inch and rupture  when the pressure gets above  that.  He said the leaks were actually the result of a failure in a  part of the system designed to  indicate when the discs ruptured and needed replacing.  "We had a couple of  instances when, unbeknownst  to us, rupture discs broke and  we were venting non-condensible gases," Hughes said.  He added that the gases  were carried off shore and,  consequently, couldn't be  smelted around the mill.  "Employees weren't aware of  it, and our neighbours in Dog-  patch weren't aware of it,"  Hughes said.  He said HSPP had started  installing new rupture discs  that have a new mechanism for  detecting breaks. The new  mechanism is a fibre optic  cable that runs across the discs  and breaks when a disc ruptures.  "This will give us an immediate indication in our control  system and somebody goes out  and fixes it," Hughes said.  He said until the new system is working, a mill employee would conduct visual  inspections of the rupture discs  every four hours.  "It is a problem, and we're  wrestling with it," Hughes  said.  1991. It was a year which started on an ominous note as the Gulf War held our nervous attention from the middle of January. On the Coast,  peace protests were held, while merchants waged a  beaucratic battle of their own against the headache  of the new GST tax and the first indications of a  growing vandalism and break-in problem. Ferry  fares went up, while early rumblings about a new  "fast" commuter ferry to Vancouver began to heal  up. 1991 was off and running...  Fisheries...  The year started on a controversial note in January long before the fishing season got underway  with a debate within the Foreshore Advisory Task  Force of the SCRD on the wisdom of raising  Atlantic salmon in local fish farms as some of the  escaped fish began to  show up in commercial  fish catches from Pacific  Coastal waters. Then in  February, a sobering  forum delivered news that  overfishing of Coho in  Georgia Strait was causing permanent reductions  in the stock In May, local  fishermen had an opportunity to express their  views at local hearings in Pender Harbour and  Gibsons with Commissioner Don Cruikshauk, and  voiced their dissatisfaction with several new federal government policies including leasing of licenses and a restriction of fishing licenses to certain  areas of Coastal waters. Following a fishing season in which salmon went missing - and were  found again off the Oregon coast - the Cruikshauk  report arrived in November slamming plans in the  Department of Fisheries to reduce the Pacific fleet  and give control of commerical fishing to private  corporations. In further unwelcome news, a flood  brought on by a storm in November wiped out  40,000 Coho at the Lions' hatchery in Pender Harbour.  The Mill...  1991 was the year that saw Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper complete its $1 billion expansion project, which took it from a murky and polluted past  to a position as one of the most technologically  advanced and environmentally clean mills in the  country. In April, the first roll of newsprint produced on the mill's new equipment rolled off the  production line, while the first 1800 tons of chlorine-free pulp was produced in November for test-  marketing in Germany.  But minor accidental effluent spills into Howe  Sound during the spring and early summer reaf-  'Theyear that saw Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper  complete its $1 billion  expansion project'  firmed the opinions of some groups that there were  still problems to lie ironed out at HSPP By July,  comments from the mill's critics prompted HSPP  to take out a full-page ad in the Coast News refuting claims from Environmental Watch and the  Western Canada Wilderness Committee that diox-  ins and furan levels were increasing, and inviting  the public to "come and see for themselves". In  May, Gibsons crab fisherman Danny Gagnier  launched a suit against HSPP for loss of income  due to shellfish closure of Howe Sound because of  pollution, but by September, HSPP had won  another victory as the case against it was thrown  out of court due to lack of credibility.  Throughout the year, there were a variety of  forums which discussed the ecosystem of the  sound, from educational dual  tours  by elementary school  students, to a gathering of  scientists on Bowen Island in  October. The news was gen  Brolly sobering and carried  the message that we must act  soon if the sound is to have  any chance of recovering In  a similar spirit, the 2nd annual Save the Strait marathon in August raised  $10,000 towards protection of coastal waters.  Garbage and More Garbage...  We reduced, re used, and recycled - this was  the year which saw a lot of us put our thoughts  into action, as recycling and waste disposal  became increasingly important issues on the Coast.  In February, the provincial government announced  a new "haz-mohile" which would operate as a  travelling toxic waste disposal unit throughout the  province. But the plans fell through and one year  later the old paint cans and household insecticides  still accumulate in garages from Port Mellon to  Egmont.  Recycling depots in both Gibsons and Sechelt  were kept busy sorting through full bins of newspapers and glass this year, but even these efforts  were not without problems as vandals forced  Sechelt's Shop Easy depot to cut back on hours  and the cost of transporting materials to Vancouver markets remained high for Coast recycling  efforts.  Education...  It was a year that saw many issues hit the spotlight in ecucation, from new Year 2000 programs  to the controversial decisions on the Pender Harbour school sites - and everybody had something  Turn to page 6  ��MM  ���MM news  DR.

The moratorium  w a_< put on by an order-in-coun-  cil of the provincial government  in November. A total of 67 projects have now been exempted  from the freeze, which is 37  percent of the total applications  being reviewed by the commission.  Russ Olson, of Sechelt Golf  Management said the company  got the news of the exemption  on Christmas Eve. which made  for a good Christmas present.  He said the soil quality and  land use adjacent to the golf  course land were probably the  reasons for a quick decision on  the Sechelt project. "It's a leap  to see that as farm land." he  said.  Details are now being completed between the company,  the District of Sechelt and the  provincial government on the  lease for the property.  Olson s.nd the next step will  be to begin drainage work on  the site, to be followed by selective clearing in preparation for  the actual course construction.

A stint in  Gibsons some years ago and  another posting in Powell River  gave him a taste for the area and  he said he and his wife are very  glad to be back.  Reid's wife Laurean is a  nurse and he has three children,  Andrea, 20, Janine, 20 and  Patrick, 19.  Reid came originally from  Ontario but has been in BC for  27 years In his 28 years with  the RCMP he has had postings  in a long list of places like Port  Hardy, Chase, Kaslo, Kam-  loops. A.shcroft, 100 Mile  House and manv other small  Staff  Sergeant  A. Cameron Keid  communities.  in an interview with the  Coast News Reid said he has  been involved mainly with general duty policing. "That's what  1 enjoy the most," he said.  He went on to say that most  people do not realize only about  five to ten percent of a police-  7 believe we  should be very  involved in  communities...'  man's duties involve actual  crime.  "I believe we should be very  involved in communities and  get to know people as much as  we can," he said. "We're working for them and addressing  their needs and concerns."  Reid has some very strong  feelings about drinking drivers  with good reason. His daughter  \ndrea was in a serious automobile accident caused by a  drinking driver.  "As a result, my response in  dealing with the drinking problem may be a little hard nosed,"  he said. "1 don't have patience  for it and I'm not willing to  negotiate on wet grads and  things like that.  "And 1 don't feel bad that  I'm a bit difficult in those  areas."  Reid feels education in the  schools is an important part of  the campaign against drinking  and driving. He and Andrea  often speak to high school  classes.  Sechelt wants more clout  Sechelt is hoping to have more clout with the  Regional District once the 1992 cenus figures are  released. At a council meeting held Jan. 2, council  members agreed with a report presented by John  Bums suggesting the population of the municipality warranted more than one vote at the regional  board. "We have every right to demand that, then  to utilize our vote and make it work," said Burns.  He added thai greater representation on the SCRD  would lead to greater co-operation between the  two levels of government, and would promote efficiency by cutting down on duplication of services.  "The taxpayer is really not particularly interested  in who provides the service as long as it is not  wasteful of tax dollars," said Bums.  Burns added that in recent conversations  Regional Board Director and local MLA Gordon  Wilson had agreed with him that "the regional district is not representative and should he changed".

Strategies and Skills for Success in College is also designed  to help students who may need  to brush up on study skills.  Business Management is a  credit course for the small business person who needs information on accounting, finance,  market research and other  aspects of entrepreneurship.  Non-credit courses will be  offered in music, computer  basics, and food handling and a  log scaling course will lead to a  certificate acceptable to the Forest Service or private companies.  The College is also offering  a variety of other services to  local residents. Counsellors will  help students with career and  educational planning and financial assistance is available  through grants, loans and bursaries.  Students and other members  of the community can use the  small library at the North Campus on Inlet Avenue and a regular courier service gives access  to the main library at the Lynn-  mour campus in North Van.  Mature students who have  been out of school for some  time can upgrade their academic  skills in not only in math but  also in English, biology, chemistry and physics through the  Adult Basic Education program.  The Achievement Resources  Centre offers counselling and  advice for those getting back  into the educational stream and  <Pet)()(esm  will be scheduling workshops  later in the year in time management, study skills and memory  training.  For seniors 55 years and  over, the Eldercollege program  offers the opportunity for study  groups led by participants in  any subject chosen by the  group. Tuition is free in credit  courses for seniors over 60 with  only a $45 registration fee  required. For non-credit courses  there is a 10 percent reduction is  tuition fees.  Still in the development  stage are courses which will be  offered later this year for gas  fitters, small vessel operators,  life skills coaches and special  education teaching assistants.  Long range plans will ultimately provide full first and  second year university transfer  courses as well as a one year  certificate in Business Management.  WEAR  LTD.

In financial matters, one  vote is given for each 2000 people in an area. Currently, Sechelt gets three weighted votes on issues  of finance, while Gibsons has two votes and the  Sechelt Indian band has one vote. This gives the  municipalities a total of six votes out of a total of  13 votes on money issues - not enough for a  majority. In everyday matters, each area represented gets one vole.  The Sunshine Coast Regional District is unusual, said Alderman Bob Wilson, in that the rural  areas represented have greater say on money  issues than the municipalities. In most places, it's  the other way around.  The Regional District level of government was  originally created by the Social Credit provincial  government to give rural areas greater representation in local affairs.  , FRIENDLY SERVICE.

Hydro.  Publication of this announcement courtesy of the Sunshine Coast News Coast News, January (>. I*-'1*-'  opinion  An ill conceived  idea making news  The Globe and Mail is more than twenty years older  than the country itself. For all of that time it has been  known as the conservative voice of Upper Canada.  It will be fair to say that we are not speaking of any liberal or radical fringe here ami so it is notable when this  organ of Central Canada's establishment in its second  paper of the new year features an opinion piece entitled:  "Free trade at three: a disaster".  Now the Globe's home province of Ontario, as the area  most protected and industrialised prior to the Free Trade  deal, is assuredly the part of the country hardest hit by  this questionable agreement, but nonetheless the writer of  the Globe piece adds his \oiee to those who believe that if  this trade agreement is not reversed this country will suffer irreparable damage. Phrases like the 'permanent de-  industrialisation' of Canada are now commonplace.  The feeling grows that there has been a major failure of  the Canadian political system here. It was a Royal Coin-  mission set up by Prime Minister Trtideatt which first  came up with the tree tratle idea. A Liberal cabinet minister. Donald Macdonald, headed the commission at the  usual grossly generous tenns awarded as perks to faithful  party servants.  The Conservatives under Mulroney were as bankrupt of  ideas coining in as they remain today. They seized on the  free trade recommendation, thereby reversing the traditional stance which had earned them the name 'Conservative' since Confederation.  The failure of the system continued through the last  election when both opposition parties and a clear majority  of Canadians opposed the deal, but the failure of the Liberals and the NDP to co-operate in key ridings in this one-  issue election saw Mulroney sweep to a second clear  majority with just over forty percent of the votes cast.  One well-placed source suggests that this misreading of  the possibilities cost Etl Broadbent his job as leader of the  NDP  Finally, with the news all bad since the deal and the  prognostications all grimly pessimistic, the system fails  again for there is no way to recall a government determined to press ahead with the deal though it now commands the confidence of less than one Canadian in five.  Front the Globe article: "The crucial question for Canadians is how much longer are we prepared to suffer the  ruinous handicaps caused by this ill-conceived experiment. Our government must be persuaded to terminate it  before the damage to Canada's economy becomes irreversible."  That may be the voice of historic conservatism in this  country. But who's going to listen'.' Brian Mulroney?  It's all a perspective  In other days the news in British Columbia might well  merit screaming headlines and the angriest of denunciations: hidden deficits, missing pension funds, and the  mighty forest industry crying the blues. Tough times on  the west coast, one might be tempted to think.  But hold on now, what is this serenity'.' It appears that  the people of this province have understood that however  badly things may have been going they are still in better  shape than anywhere else in Canada - and by far.  So the kind of news that one can continue to find in our  headlines as we peruse the affairs of the province does not  disturb us. Canadians are worse off than we are all over  the country. It's all a m-itter of perspective, isn't it.  tetters  Suggestion for  waste disposal  It was a perfectly simple resolution, or so I thought at another dismal meeting with the  regional hoard: a resolution  whose basic tenel was common  sense and one in which I had a  measure of faith in the wisdom  of the sitting members to appreciate and understand. It was not  to be!  There are two ways to  resolve this recently adopted  waste disposal policy that has  affected many on the Coast, I  suggested.  One is to look foolish by legislating a totalitarian dictate that  would rank us with those east-  em block states where freedom  of choice did not exist and  everyone drove a Trabant.  The other choice, I suggested, would be to adopt the same  rules as the city of Vancouver  (which, by the way, allows  three cans per residence and,  does not set a container size  restriction), following the policy  of the Workers' Compensation  Board guidelines which provide  that a worker need not pick up a  container that would be injurious to his health...specifically  his back.  It was obviously a point with  which Madame Chairman  Peggy Connor was entirely  unfamiliar, having informed me  at the last meeting that can size  was dictated by WCB regulations. A call to an officer of  WCB, however, has proved otherwise and I clarify this for her  honour the chairman and the  rest of the board.  Then her honour cursorily  suggested thai she had had an  opportunity to study the information available to her and was  able to now inform me lhat the  regulation in effect (and which  recent enlighlenmeni presumably had come from her reading  of the region's own bylaws),  was specific in its statement thai  container size was 16 by 22, the  inference in this statement of  finality being thai nothing more  need be said, ihe matter was  closed.  Fortunately I happened to  have a copy of the bylaws wihin  easy grasp and was able to read  into the record Ihe actual provisos of the bylaw in question.  Excuse me madam chairman I  suggested, quoting section 3.2,  the bylaw reads as follows:  "The said containers shall be of  a standard size", and I added, il  says in parentheses, "approximately 16 by 22"!  There is no indication here, I  added, whether this be inches,  feet, metres, gallons, cubic centimetres or whatever! 1 attempted to read the further provisos  of Ihe bylaw but madame chairman squelched my words as  some are wont to do when  proven wrong and can muster  no legitimate comeback.  It was at this point thai  Director Jim Gurney opted in  place regional dislricl mindset  on a par with eastern European  thought by suggesting legislation lhat would standardize our  ticky-tacky Irash cans and  remove freedom of choice from  ihe scenario, in ihe process tossing logic and reason out the  window.  While freedom of choice  seems good enough for the million odd souls living in the  lower mainland, apparently it's  not worthy for us Coasters.  Move over Chairman Mao.  there's room al the top!  R.S. RODVIK  Caren flyer claims  not substantiated  During the week of December 18, 1991, most Coast residents received an 'educational  report' from the Western Canada Wilderness Committee  (WCWC) in their mail, co-published with a local group known  as the Friends of Caren.

If these people are to be  believed, Ihe oldest tree in  Canada (a Yellow Cedar  approximately 1700 years old)  was cut in ihe Caren Range a  few yean ago. The truth of Ihe  mailer, however, is that trees of  this age are far from unique,  and the tree in question was not  Canada's oldest tree. There is a  Larch over 2000 years old living a happy, protected life in  Manning Park. Doubtless still  older specimens will be found if  enough people put their minds  lo it,  The report also claims thai  the Caren Range "is believed lo  support one of the largest  known breeding colonies of the  threatened Marbled Murrelet."  Believed by whom? Certainly  not the experts who work for  the Ministry of Forest, the Ministry of the Environment or the  Canadian Wildlife Service.  Perhaps even more disconcerting than the lack of credibility in the report, however, is the  assertion thai "the people of the  Sunshine Coast, and perhaps of  the province as a whole should  determine the best treatment of  the area". Oh, really? At a time  when local communities are  fighting to have a bigger say in  land use decisions, suddenly the  people of the entire province  may be best suited lo make this  important decision for us? I  think not.  DAVID C. BEBB. RPF  Sechelt. BC  Many Canadians are unaware and unappreciative of their history  I am now in the midsl of my thirty-eighth year  in Canada. My first here was by no means my first  year of life, but well along towards two thirds of  all my years spent on this earth have been spent as  an earner, a taxpayer, a father, and a grandfather in  this country. 1 have worked in its corporations,  taught in lis schools and run a small business in  geographic areas almost as widespread east lo  west, north to south, as what is now the world's  largest country itself.  Not being a Canadian to begin with, being an  immigranl in search of opportunity and full of  enthusiasm for the country in which I was going lo  find it. I hurled myself into the question of Canada  almost thirty-eight years ago with an energy and  appreciation which was certainly not ihe Canadian  norm.  In the 1950's 1 plunged into the study of Canadian history and found it fascinating, evocative and  endlessly absorbing. I stared in disbelief at my  teenage fellows, born and brought up in Canada,  who asserted confidently that the history of their  country was boring.  I was not only studying it avidly and with  delight at the time, I was finding in it echoes of the  dreams of childhood of a coalminer's son who  found fascination in the coureurs de bois, in the  Brandy Trade, in the French-English wars, in the  Bishops and Governors, in the Chateau Clique in  Lower Canada and the Family Compact in Upper  musings  John burnside  Canada, in fiery and memorable rebels like  William Lyon Mackenzie and Louis Riel. and in  John A Macdonald, possibly the most remarkable  elected leader apart from Abraham Lincoln in the  history of democracy.  How could Canadians see their history as boring?  And how could they be, en masse, as indifferent  to a geography as compelling, varied, beautiful  and challenging as anything on earth?  The fact was, I came slowly lo realize, lhat  Canadians knew nothing of their history and cared  nothing for their geography. That is, they cared  nothing for the people who had preceded them nor  the place they themselves were in.  Canadians are not interested in their history nor  their country; they lend lo react with embarrassment to anyone who does betray enthusiastic interest, and with even more embarrassment to any  Canadian who is so thoroughly recognized outside  of this country as lo be undoubtedly of interest.  So we enter into a new year which sees the  future of Canada jeopardised as never before by a  succession of incompetent and self-serving governments, and above all by the smug apathy of the  Canadian electorate which never seems embarrassed by corruption, only by true stature.  I was given impetus to run my mind over these  sad evaluations by a two-part mini-series that the  CBC ran early in 1992 about thai most embarrassing of Canadian heroes, not recognised here but  revered elsewhere, Dr. Norman Bethune.  How dare a highly successful Montreal surgeon  and socialite throw comfon to the winds and go  off and serve in the battle fields of Spain and  China, working in both cases for the Communists.  II was rapidly pointed out that this renegade  from the Montreal social elite was a drunkard and  womaniser. Had he stayed in the Montreal elite  social circles it is a fair guess thai he would not  have been alone in these failings and no one would  have thought it worthy of mention.  So Canadians find out with some puzzled surprise that one of their uninteresting brood is seen  as a hero of heroes in the world's most populous  country. There must be some mistake. Of course  there is, fellow Canadians hasten to assure them.  Bethune was a drunk and a womanizer and, what  must surely be worse, a Red.  Bethune is not alone in this treatment by his  coast  Reporters  Trig) Sunshine Coast News is locally owned  and published on me Sunshine Coast.

In the country of my birth there was a  man who spoke of love and simple things with  lyric beamy, but combined them with an uncompromising rage against the greed and stupidity of  landowners and the privileged, of "man's inhumanity to man", and it was enough to see him die  in poverty despite the gifts which saw him recognized by ihe erection of statues in his honour all  over the world.  Robert Bums, like Norman Bethune, has been  passed down to us as a drunk and a womanizer and  a dangerous radical, and Scotsmen when they celebrate Bums, as they will all over the world, remain  a little shamefaced aboul his 'weaknesses'.  So when Canadians finally, more than fifty  years after his death, come lo celebrate Norman  Bethune, the exercise is as full of and fraught with  division and difficulty as the country itself. The  critics leap on the division and difficulty and  alleged shortcomings of the production with the  same savage, self-effacing nihilism they brought lo  the study of Canadian history as children.  I watched the show despite the critics. 1 saw  bright and caring people bringing into overdue  focus a great man whose caring and whose passion  for social justice were much more significant than  the all too familiar human failings lhat were also  his. I enjoyed the show; admired Bethune; but  what would I know about this country or its  heroes.  Gitjsons Kim Cume  Sechelt. Ruth Forrester  RoseNehotson  John Bumlido. S. Nutter,  Peter T rower.

AWARD-WINNING  newspaper ephemera  Coast News, lanuary (>, 14') 2  In a nutshell  s. nutter  As we head into '92 our thoughts turn to the animal kingdom,  which is to say away from the human commonwealth of this's or  that's and its determination to pile problems on problems, and discuss  them endlessly in just the way lhat can make them ever more complex and distressing. I mean, one knows oneself what to do with any  of these so-called problems right? Be they in Serbia or Georgia or  Quebec or any other district of the global village? Calm is what  seems needed in this hour, and for calm, chaps, we turn to the animal  kingdom.  We had lor example once, two Himalayan cats, brother and sister..  They were tremendously handsome and tremendously calm. Friends  complained lhat they had no personality at all. You could hardly tell  one from the other, but boy, were they ever calm.  It had been thought that perhaps a  couple ttf cats would be thing...  Previously we had had a series of dogs, three Samoyeds, each one  called Kim. They had been thumped one after the other by cars. It had  been thought thai perhaps a couple of cats would be the thing. We  were living in just about the center of Toronto, just off Bloor and just  off Yonge, in a third floor apartment, when we got the cats. There  was a raised sort of artificial garden on the first floor, with spruce  trees planted (experimentally), and it was felt that the cats should not  lie encouraged lo leap off ihe balcony into this greenery. It was, I am  sorry to say, pretty well concluded lhat this pair of Himalayans  should be brought up as 'house cats'.  With all the empathy you could muster towards these cats you  were thereafter not really getting through. There was eventually an  incident which broke the pattern somewhat. There was a New Year's  party. The sliding door to the balcony had been left open. In the  morning a visiting friend was still about. Hours went by before we  realized that we were only seeing one cat instead of two.  We searched the place, of course, knocked on doors all up and  down, plastered the place wih posters, but no Katy. Three days went  by before we were called by ihe maintenance man who narked his car  Ik'Iow the raised garden. He had gone to check his oil and our cat was  curled up behind his battery. He had tried to fish her out and she had  bitten him.  Taking calm beyond a reasonable level  He had been driving home and back every day, but still she  seemed though a bit grubby, not terribly put out, We whipped her  down to the vel's but nothing seemed to be wrong. She might be a bit  neurotic, the doctor said, but God knows she might have been a bit  neurotic all along. Her brother, Blue, hardly seemed to notice her re-  arrival.  This is taking calm perhaps beyond a recommendablc level.  My son, Christopher, once when I was away, persuded his mother  to gel him an antealer who had caught his eye in a Montreal pet shop.  Archy, the antealer, slept most of the day in a box in Christopehr s  room, covered with a blanket. When it was time for dins, Archy  would signify by pulling his long tongue under Christopher's door,  which led into the living room, and waving it about.  Sometimes, when there were guests, this could lead to a comparison of calmness between the human and the animal worlds. A fixed  look on the face of someone not knowing an anteater was in there  could be worth the price of admission.  Christopher fed Archy on cat food dosed with some drops of  acetylsalicylic acid, and took him for walks in the park in the town  of Mount Royal. Archie was along the lines of a Borzoi, with of  course, a much longer nose, but with the same soulful eyes and the  same nice loose gait to him, and il has to be said, talking of calm in  the animal kingdom, he tended to rather freak out the poodles, etc.  being promenaded in the park.  Nonetheless, I would recommend in these troublous times, regular  doses of soothing programs like 'Wide, Wide World of Animals'.  This may require lhat you Ik- up at 5 am, but what's the matter with  that?  SPCA  news  This handsome 1-2 year  old hound  dog needs a  home or for  his owner to  claim him.

Bird Count Nets  Record Numbers  bit Tony vMMMM  There may not have been French Hens or a partridge in a pear  tree, but scoters, gulls and crows were all in ample supply on  December 14 when the Sechelt Marsh Society and friends participated in the 92nd annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count Twenty  one participants in seven separate parties attempted to cover as  much as possible of the seven and one half mile radius circle centred in Roberts Creek The circle reached lo West Sechelt on the  west and lo Port Mellon on the east.  Two diehards  spent the night  hours prowling the  woods for owls  Each of the seven parlies  were led by a competent  birder likely to know all the  species encountered, The  weallur was excellent for a  bird count with clear blue  skies, no wind and warm  temperatures for mid winter,  Apart from two diehards  who spent the night hours prowling the wihhIs for owls (and found  three Barred Owls), counting hegan at S am and continued until  darkness at 5 pm. In the process, 93 different species of birds were  located with a total of 12,801 individuals. Four species. Surf Scoter (2(112); Barrow's Goldeneye, Glaucouswinged Gull (2537) and  Northwestern Crow accounted for over SO percent of all the birds  seen.  In terms of rarity, the "best" species seen were a Mourning  Dove in Porpoise Bay, and a While winged Crossbill on Mount  Elphinstone. Both these birds were new lo Ihe Sunshine Coast  count and brought the all-time total in 13 counts to 137 species.  Three duck species - Surf Scoters, Black Scoters and Barrow's  Goldeneyes - were present in record numbers. They can all be  seen in the Davis Bay/Mission Point area. Numbers for other  species were low, because of severe temperatures last winter causing high mortality. Still others were scarce, because this year's  wjarm weather has not forced these birds into the lowlands.  The 12,801 birds recorded was the highest ever for the lower  Sunshine Coast count while the 95 species was an average number. The participants enjoyed an excellent day of birding, and the  information compiled makes long-term bird population studies  possible.  This year also, the Pender Harbour Wildlife Club conducted its  first bird count, covering the whole north end of the peninsula  from Wood Bay to Egmonl with 4881 birds spotted from 68 different species. Highlights included 413 Marbled Murrelels, four  Ring-necked Ducks, 854 Barrow's Goldeneye, 13 Ruffed Grouse,  423 Bonaparte's Gulls and one Rhinocerous Auklel.

April also saw ihe beginning of another type of protest as  well, as parents from Pender Harbour voiced opposition to a proposal  to amalgamate ihe elementary and secondary schools levels on lo one  site in Kleindale. By October, the school board had  voted to accept the  K 12 proposal. But less  than two months later, trustees voted to  withdraw lhat decision in favour of further  studv, following protests from residents  and a petition signed by 800 people  9   against Ihe plan  Meanwhile, the  school which did exist al the Ihe  Kleindale site - Pender Harbour  Secondary - won its accreditation  with flying colours.  Development  In Gibsons, the city showed  signs of coming lo the town, as  Marcorp development's  conslruclion of Gibsons Park  Plata dominated Ihe business  scene  First steps were underway  by February   Bui not everybody  was overjoyed at the prospect of  further large shopping centres in  Gibsons   In April, owners of  S u n n y c r e s t  mall  protested a  "loophole"  which they  said        was  allowing Marcorp lo include their  lands within the town of Gibsons'  boundaries by bending the rules  of the municipality. As a result of  length) negotiations between  Gibsons and the regional district,  Gibsons finally expanded iheir  boundaries to include the new  mall property. By June, the  developers had the go-ahead they  needed - just before the town  declared a moratorium on further  development, pending studies of  sewer and related services. By  November, almost 5000 consumers  offered their own commeni by  lurning up to ihe grand opening of  Woolworths.

Sechell merchants had other things lo worry about,  though - 1991 saw a rash of vandalism and commercial break-ins,  which made several owners question Ihe type of changes which were  becoming increasingly apparent in the once quiet community.  Election  We waited and we waited. While the election proper look its time  arriving on the Coast, there' were die early political rumblings. In  February, an NDP potluck dinner showed all the signs of an electfflfi  rallying of the troups, while Liberal leader Gordon Wilson found  himself facing charges of fiscal impropriety concerning party funds,  which he vigourously refuled in comments to the local press.  Sunshine Coast election machines moved into high gear in  October with the dropping of the writ by then-Premier Rita Johnson.  Everything seemed to be proceeding as expected for Ihe first half of  the campaign, with the NDP enjoying a substantial lead over the  Liberals and Social Credit. Then came the TV debate which changed  the course of both the local and provincial election picture as Gordon  Wilson and BC Liberal party surged ahead, with the help of nightly  BCTV polls. In a survey of Coast voters, ethics shared top billing  with the economy on the list of issues being considered by the  electorate - but that didn't stop a healthy dose of mud-slinging during  local candidate's debates. By the night of October 17th, il was all  over, with Gordon Wilson winning the Sunshine Coast riding with  over 11,000 votes and proceeding to a position as Leader of the  Official Opposition, as his party  enjoyed a dramatic upsurge  of   support   across   the  province.

In  March,   the    band  signed  its  second  five-year agreement  for self-government  funding   from  the  federal government,  reaffirming        ils  unique status on Ihe  Canadian      Native  scene. Then in April,  there was the starl of  action on one of the  band's    other   most  important issues as the  Sechell's $54 million land  claim was accepted for  negotialion by government -  but by the end of 91. there was  still no more news on the situation.  Al Ihe end of May, Ihe House of Hewhlwus  (House of Chiefs) became one of the new  showpieces of the Coast as a potlatch was held for  a grand opening of the complex, which went on to  house a museum, offices for both government and  Capilano College and the Raven's Cry Theatre.  One sad note in the otherwise happy year was  the passing on of elder Mary Jane Jackson al 86 in  November.  Forestry.  The bailies begun in the woods over logging  and environmental protection continued on the  Sunshine Coast in 1991, albeit not with quite the  level of animosity found in some other pans of ihe  province. There were forums and more forums  and everybody seemed to agree that  communication between environmentalists and  the forest industry was a good idea, even if we  weren't really sure what it would lead lo.  The Local Resource Use Plan team for ihe  Tetrahedron slogged on through dramatic changes  in its numbers and structure, first in March, when  the Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection  Project pulled out of meetings and again in May,  when District Forests Manager Barry Mountain  announced that size and represenlation on Ihe  committee would be cut.  Meanwhile, the discovery of the slump of a  1700-year old yellow cedar in the Caren Range  spurred requests by Ihe local group Friends of  Caren lo halt logging in that area. In September,  wildlife artist Robert Baleman added his voice lo  Ihe cause - an act not particularly welcomed by  some loggers on the Coast.  During ihe summer, the Forest Resources  Commission Report headed by Sandy Peel  released recommendations for far-reaching  reforms of the forest service. By September, Ihe  BC Ministry of Forests had issued a report  criticizing its own methods of limber supply  analysis,  And by October, we were back discussing the  issues al another forum - this lime put on by the  disirici Labour Council. Accurate inventories,  provincial plans and a new local forest  commission were called for from all parties.  In related issues on the environmentalist front,  there were protests by Pender Harbour residents in  June and again by Longdate residents in August  against the use of ihe chemical Vision by BC  Hydro for clearing in iheir areas. Further protests  by Egmont residents against the use of the same  herbicide in the Dorislon area resulted in Terminal  Forest Products backing down from a plan lor  aerial spraying.  The Boat That Wouldn't Float  The year started on a sour note for Sunshine  Coast customers of BC Ferries, with a jump in  ferry fares . And throughout the rest of the year,  things didn't get a whole lot better.  Following discussions that had already taken  place in 1990, the idea of a passenger-only  commuter ferry between Vancouver and the  Sunshine Coast lurched between a near certainty  and definitive collapse in the first half of the year.  In January, controversy was already swirling on a  docking sile in Gibsons rather than Langdale, and  there was debate over whether we really wanted  the ferry in Ihe first place, with some suggesting  improved service on existing runs would be a  better idea. By April, the ferry idea seemed lo i>e  moving ahead, with negotiations underway for a  docking sile al Hyak Marina, fare announcements  and a mini real estate  boom in Gibsons: Bui by  May, plans were in the  air again as Ihe fast ferry  deal was cancelled by  Victoria for not meeting  contractual deadlines and  ferry developer Stewart  Vinnels had run into  problems with both Ihe  Bowen Island link of his  commuter ferry plan and  plans to buy a docking  site in Gibsons. By May,  plans for a fast ferry had  been officially sunk.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Child Find to aid RCMP  A concerned parents group at Cedar Grove Elementary School is  taking steps to ensure the safety of children on the Coast.  On January 11, from 9 am to 5 pm, volunteers from Cedar Grove's  Parent Advisory Committee will be recording the fingerprints and  photographing all the children of interested parents as part of a program called Child Find-  According lo Cedar Grove's parent/education representative  Johanna Rzepa, the goal of the Child Find is precautionary; it's lo  make il easier for the RCMP to find missing children.  "At the beginning of the year," Rzepa said, "the parent Advisory  Committee discussed the theme we'd like to have for the year and  decided on child safely...this Child Find is an application of our  theme."  She noted that ihe RCMP will assist with the fingerprinting process but the identity cards made for the children are kept by the  parents.  robertscreek  by lev Cranston  Happy New Year, Creekers. In Ihe 'News' business an interesting  way lo begin the New Year's first issue is the custom of reviewing  events of the past year, good and bad, and in between. Following is  a brief hxik back at Roberta Creek 1991.  January weather saw lots of ice and snow, along with several cold  snaps.  Creekers met at the mouth of Roberts Creek to  participate in Ihe launching of a flotilla of floating  hurricane candles into Georgia Strait as a sign of  lengthening days, peace and gixxl will.  Creek Foods International opened in downtown  Roberts Creek, owned and operated by Patti Dewar  and Jerry Hills, featuring dinners and picnics to go  and lots more.  Peter Light stales in a letter to the editor "I welcome Ihe GST, for il reminds me and resolves me lo  spend and make do with less and less!" What a way  lo beat the GST, which by the way, is still upon us. I  wonder when il will lie raised to nine or ten percent.  Roberts Creek Elementary girls and boys volleyball teams travelled to Surrey led by coach Barry Krangle, in a major BC Tournament.  Creekers led by Donna Shugar organized a group called 'Concerned Crow (loaders' (which later became 'Concerned Coast Residents') and turned out to a meeting with Forestry officials to protest  clearcul logging in Roberts Creek above the power lines.  Roberts Creek is targeted in an extensive rec plan by PERC, a  company hired by coastal governments and local groups. This area  was recommended due to its central location.  Tim Clement, well known woodcarver, was for the third year  elected by acclamation as Forest Advisory Committee Chairman.  Roberts Creek golfer Gary Robinson, holding his favourite iron on  a rare sunny day, made Ihe Coast News snorts section.  Cliff Gilker Park's sportsfield opened and was well used all season for soccer, baseball and other community events. It's a lovely  green oasis.  Ken Dalgleish publicly asked the person or persons who stole his  specialized piano tuning tools to please return them. In the meantime  Ken has purchased a new/old fine set from an old-  timer in the profession.  Roberts Creeker Terry Weatherill played opposite  Alice Albrecht in the highly praised performance  'Precious Sons' at the Creek Hail, directed by Creeker  Jay Pomfret.  The proposed Pilch 'n Putt on the corner of  Maskell Road and Highway 101 was turned down by  the SCRD due to protests from local residents.  Blues great Eddie Shaw brought Wolf Gang in for  a one night sizzler at the Creek Hall.  Roberts Creek was declared a separate nation by  rained on, gumbooted Creekers at a May Day celebration at the campsite.  Ernie Fossetl, President of the Roberts Creek Legion proposed a  retirement home complex in Roberts Creek.  Centra Gas put a pipeline through Roberts Creek but residents  won't lie serviced with natural gas. We have benefitted in one very  important aspect, and that is the wider, cleaner and safer walkway  along Lower Road. Now if drivers would just listen lo Grace Lawson  and many others, myself included, who have asked and written  repeatedly to the public to please slow down. This is a 30 zone and  many kids, adults and animals walk, run and jog along Lower Road.  Peace and Happiness in 1992!  by George Cooper, B86-8520  Emergency Calls  Dialing 911 in an emergency  here on the Sunshine Coast is  not, it turns out, a futile act.  Does use up a few seconds,  however.  Check it out for yourself. A  recorded voice almost immediately very calmly responds,  "Hang up and dial the agency  direct or dial zero for assistance." The message repeats  once.  The agency mentioned is, of  course, one of police, fire,  ambulance or another of those  listed inside Ihe cover of your  phone book. Records of 911  calls in Canada show that 80 to  90 percent are for Ihe police,  about 10 are for ambulance, and  two to six percent are for fire.  And who remembers even one  agency number?  A recent accident on the  Coast has shown, however, thai  dialing '0' in an emergency  brings immediate response and  a connection to Ihe appropriate  agency.  As in dialing '0', the 911  systems use operators to act  upon Ihe caller's information.  There are two 911 systems, Ihe  basic and the enhanced. In  enhanced 911 there is either  automatic number identification  or automatic location identification. Is there any reason for  undue anxiety about calling for  emergency assistance?  There certainly does not  appear to be any where communication by phone is concerned.  But does everyone know how lo  use Ihe emergency call system?  Discussions with family and  in schools could well give  youngsters instruction and dry  run practice in making emergency calls and giving the oper  ator the needed information.  Let me voice the acclaim  many readers must have for the  composure displayed by young  Michael Lasuta in that horrendous emergency in his home in  mid-December. Such cool-  headedness leaves us all in open  admiration, Michael.  The Messiah  A footnote to the splendid  presentation last December 14  and 15 of this cantata to tell a  little of the soloists.

Certificates of Service and/or  Appreciation were presented  from the society to various  members of the unit and volunteers from ihe community. Our  president, Flora Sim, reported  on the concert given by Nikki  Weber and Friends in late  November in Gibsons, with proceeds lo the unit. These are  especially good friends lo not  only Ihe Sunshine Coast Unit,  but also to Camp Good Times at  Roberts Creek and the Teen-  Peer Counselling Retreat at  Pender Harbour.

Amidst Ihe cheers and  whistles of the onlookers, 45  brave souls plunged into ihe  briny, cold waters of the bay.  The soulful sound of the bagpipes wafted across the scene as  ihe swimmers gasped, squealed,  shrieked and whooped when  they hit the icy water.  The entrants included all  ages and both sexes, although  men were predominant. However, ihe females succeeded in  staying in the water for longer!  Melte Hoegh and Selena  Huffman won for being the  'longest in the water' which  was judged to be 10 minutes  plus! Incidentally, Metie is an  exchange student from Greenland who is currently spending  ihe school year with Heather  Blackwood, whose daughter is  spending her school year in Portugal.  The 'best costume' prize  went to 'witch' Darlene  Humbird who lit up the waters  with her bright red outfit and  black witch's hal.  The youngest plunger was  Colwyn Sleep, four years old,  while ihe oldest was Jenny  Saunders al 65 years. Hooray  for the Welshmen! Our claim lo  fame?  The swim was a great way to  kick off the New Year 1992. It  proves the community will support this sort of family entertainment and may provide an  incentive to other groups lo plan  more events of this nature.  Many thanks lo the fellas who  patrolled Ihe waters, Ihe ambulance people standing by and  the RCMP for the great traffic  control - you did a great job!

New Year in California  This year we brought in the New Year far from  our traditional Scottish Hogmanay celebration.  Along with family in San Jose, California, we  spent the evening al an Italian Restaurant where  the champagne flowed like water and entertainment was provided by several opera singers, all of  whom were of the highest quality. No amateurs  there. The orchestra was wonderful too and the  fixxl plentiful. The whole atmosphere was that of a  great party where everyone got together and had a  happy time. All that was missing was a group of  friends from Halfmoon Bay whose company we  really did miss, especially those with whom we  usually bring in the New Year.  Only in California could a proposal of marriage  lake place such as the one we witnessed on this  New Year's Eve. A dapper young man took over  the mike, and, in front of at least 150 people, got  down on his knees, tuxedo and all, and asked lor  the young lady's hand in marriage. She immediately said "Yes," much to the joy of those present,  and everyone took part in a toast to the young couple. It might have been more fun had she said "I'll  think about it," but 1 guess she was too overwhelmed to hesitate.  The couple at the table next to ours spent the  entire evening kissing and hugging, real hot stuff,  and we wondered about them, because they were  certainly not a young couple. Someone at another  table asked them if they were just married.  "Oh," said the guy, "we're both married, but  not to each other. That's why we get along so  well."  Only in California!  St. Mary's Auxilary To Meet  The Halfmoon Bay branch of St. Man's Hospital Auxilary will be holding their next meeting at  Coopers Green Hall at 10 am on Monday Jan 13.  All members are asked to be sure to bring a note of  hours worked during the past year.  Now thai we are back home, would you please  give me a call in the evenings if you have any  news items or events 1 should mention. Would be  particularly pleased to learn who had the first Halt-  moon Bay baby of the year. Please let me know  Meantime, a happy and healthy New Year to  you all.  Coast students travel to  Japan and Thailand  by Jane Sayd  Two students from the Sunshine Coast will be heading off  to the far east this spring as part  of a cultural exchange program  sponsored by Ihe Ministry of  Education.  Kelly Milroy of Chatelech  Secondary and Brad Cotter of  Pender Harbour Secondary will  be packing their bags in April to  head off to Thailand and Japan,  respectively, for a three-month  stay. The trips are part of a program designed by the ministry  to foster cultural ties with Pacific Rim areas like Japan, Hong  Kong, and Malaysia. The students from the Coast will be  two of IS students taking part in  the program across the  province. Each student is billet- '���  ed with a host family and puts  up $500 towards ihe trip, while  the Ministry of Education picks  up the rest of expenses.  Both students are excited  about the prospect of iheir trip.  Kelly Milroy, who will be  heading off to Thailand says  she'll be most interested in the  qualities which make that country different from Canada, from  the Buddhist religious festivals  to the spicy food. She'll also be  interested to find out what it's  like to be different herself - to  be seen as a member of a  minority rather than the dominant cultural group. "They  speak a lot of English, but they  don't look like you and I," she  says, "The shoe will be on the  other fool."

Cotter and Milroy were chosen for the Sunshine Coast  placements after being interviewed by a selection commit  tee, which looked for  motivation, independence and  responsibility, among other  qualities. Consideration was  also given to how well students  would represent Canada in  another country. During the  interviews, students answered  tough questions which have  been known to stump even  astute politicians, which included issues on free trade, Quebec  separatism, and Native rights, to  name a few.  "It's kind of a big shock,"  says Kelly, "I'm sure it won't  really sink in until a month  before I leave."  Landmarks  Reveal  History  by Peter Trowtr  Although Ihe communities of  Davis Bay and Selma Park have  their separate identities, they are  close enough to Sechelt lo be  considered suburbs of the town  Both places were first settled in  the late 1890s. Davis Bay was  once a Union Steamship stop  and still retains its government  wharf. Il boasts one of the few  sandy beaches on Ihe Sunshine  Coasl and is a popular spot for  swimmers in the summer  months,  The town of Sechelt grew up  around the long-established  Indian Reserve from which il  takes its name. The Sechelt  Band are Ihe original inhahi  units of this area and have lived  here for hundreds of years. The  historic church on the reserve  signifies iheir conversion lo  Christianity in Ihe late 1800s. A  fascinating account of their  myths, legends and early history  may be found in The Story Of  The Sechell Nation by local  historian, Lester Peterson (Harbour).  The Sechelts created an  important precedent a few years  back when they became Ihe first  Native band in Canada lo  achieve self-government, They  own and operate several successful businesses including a  gravel pit and an air charter service.  The first white landowner in  Sechelt was a man named John  Scales, a former member of  Colonel Moody's Royal Engineers. He made his original  application in 1869. The first  legal survey of the area was  conducted by William Sugden  Jemmel in 1875. Two of the  earliest families to settle on this  part of the Peninsula were the  Cooks and the Whilakers. They  first pre-empted land here in the  early 1890s. Others soon followed and gradually the present  day town began to materialize  from the wilderness.  The first hole! in Sechelt was  built in 1899 near the beach by  Bert Whilaker. It was destroyed  by fire in 1914. A second hotel  met the same fate in 1937.  Sechelt's third hotel had a  somewhat longer life span.  Known as the Sechelt Inn, it  was operated by the Union  Steamship Company from 1926  until 1952. The Inn continued  under private ownership until  1963 when, like its predecessors, it too went up in flames.  One historic hostelry thai  managed to survive is the  Wakefield Inn, north of Sechell.  Built in 1926, it served as a private home until 1940. In thai  year il was sold and converted  to a beer parlor. It has functioned in this capacity ever  since, under a variety of owners.  Directly across the road from  the Wakefield is a derelict log  cabin that also dates back to the  20s. During the 30s, il served as  a combination police station and  relief office. Abandoned during  Ihe 40s, il was re-activated as a  coffee shop in the 50s. It has  stood forlornly empty now for  many years.  Need that  High School  Diploma?

Valerie Vmall photo.  egmontnews  by Lynn Mass, 883-1188  Wow! What a great Christmas party. We were running a  bit late, but nevertheless, we  still wheeled in just in time to  dig in. (Thank God for 'Egmont  time'). As usual there was a  vast assortment of delicacies  conjured up in kitchens from  Ruby Lake to Egmont Road. I  believe one lasagna even made  it all the way from West Vancouver.  When all appetites were  sated, and tea and Java were  making the rounds, the  Skookum Scrappers drew the  winning ticket for the long  awaited 'most beautiful quilt in  sechelt council notes  the world' raffle. The very  lucky winner is Chris Harrison  of Calgary. He was up this summer working on his folks' place  in old Egmont, when Frank  Nichol scooted over and talked  htm into spending a loony.  Well, all of us who thought we  would win were kind of long-  faced, but not for long. Santa  Dude, king of elves had arrived!  The children gathered in a  big circle right round his big red  chair and after three big cheers  for the town of Egmont (instituted by Santa himself), he proceeded to pick out surprizes  from his bulging sack. It was  wonderful to see all the smiles  Mayor Nancy MacLarty opened the Jan. 2 meeting by wishing  everyone a Happy New Year and noting that 1992 is a leap year. "We  have an extra day this year," she told council. "We're bound to  accomplish a lot more."  Bus Service Discussed  Council would like to see greater bus service offered to Sechell  residents, particularly to the arena and to residential areas. Sechelt  residents pay for transit through their taxes, said Mayor Nancy  MacLarty, but few people away from Ihe core of the district can take  advantage of the service. "I think we have to cover more residential  areas as well," she said.  Meanwhile, the Sunshine Coast Transit System has just introduced  monthly bus passes for the Coasl at rates of $27/adull, $24/senior and  $24/student. Passes are available at the regional district office.  The transit system provided 55,000 rides on the Coast in 1991. For  information on routes and schedules, residents can call transit information at 885-3234.  Arcade and Smoking By-laws Considered  At the Jan. 2 meeting, Council gave third reading to a by-law  defining an "Amusement Arcade" as an establishment containing  more than three coin-operated "electronic game machines". Under  existing zoning, arcades are not a permitted use of property in the  municipality. This means that anyone wishing to open an arcade  would have to apply to council for special consideration. Existing  businesses will not be affected by the by-law.  Third reading was also given to a new nonsmoking by-law proposed by the District, which would place restrictions on smoking in  areas of local businesses and many public locations.  Conflict of Interest Rules Discussed  Council has decided to seek further clarification on the results of a  recent BC Supreme Court decision regarding potential conflict-of-  interest for voting council members. The results of the court decision,  which involved a case between Harwood Industries Ltd. and the District of Surrey, mean that it is no longer sufficient for council members to "abstain" from voting on issues where there is a perceived  conflict of interest. In the case of a tie vole, if a council member is  present during and after the portion of the meeting when the issue is  discussed, an abstention will be considered a "positive" vote on the  recommendation. Il was unclear, however, whether council members  would lie considered lo have voted "positively" if they were present  for other parts of a council meeting. Sechelt Planner Rob Sabine said  he would seek clarification of this issue. In the meantime, Mayor  Nancy MacLarty suggested council members request any issues  involving potential conflict of interest be included al the very end of  council meetings.

The hall  was filled with warmth and  good vibes, while the wind and  rain swirled around outside.  After the dinner this household was called upon to reveal  Ihe origin of the mysterious  'walnut balls' that were part of  the spread. Okay! Okay! Karin  Hunt made them and she was  kind enough to pass on the  recipe. Here il is: Walnut Balls:  3/4 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup  chopped walnuts, one small  onion (chopped fine), 1/2 cup  grated cheese, 2 eggs, 1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning. Mix  all ingredients and shape into  walnut-sized balls. Brown in  oil. Yummy with spaghetti.

Small  as  A trip north, to the end of the road  By Stuart lumsldt  It -Lined with the most basic  of noil reproductive urges, the  desire to get away from the  stress and commotion associated with living from hand to  banker's mouth on a semimonthly basis.  1 had a week's holiday over  Christmas and my girlfriend  was temporarily freed from the  confines of higher education. So  we. like many hardier northern  souls, opted lo scrape together  our mutual resources and head  for a warmer clime, seeking a  temporary but necessary  reprieve from the familiar  Coastal drizzle.  "$155?" I asked, somewhat  taken aback when the post  Christmas ripples had settled on  our monetary pool. "If we spend  a night in Vancouver we won't  have enough money left for Ihe  ferry home."  A naked, ugly and all too  familiar reality began to peak  from behind a curtain of high  hopes - post holiday depression  before Ihe vacation had begun.  The beast had to be beaten  back with a stick; a course of  action was better than ticking  away scarce and precious free  time just to return to the seldom-quiet desperation of editorial deadlines.  The answer lay, as many  Canadians seeking good fortune  instinctively know, to the north.  We would snake bravely up  Highway 101 far north, north to  where bears are bears and men  are scarce.  "Quick Laura, consult the  map!" I cried.  "Lund?" she asked after  Rand McNally had beet, scrutinized, "What's in Lund?"  "It's the End of the Road," 1  said. "It's a place everyone talks  about but where no one living  has ever been. Kinda' like  heaven."  Two days later, with the loan  of a Volkswagon camper from  indulgent parents, we were  heading North, motoring  smoothly toward destiny.  In truth, it's not thai far. An  hour and a half's "easy driving  time" from Gibsons to Earls  Cove and we boarded the  Queen of Capilano , a glossy  wedding cake of a vessel, sturdy  despite outward appearances.  The trip over was filled with  all the beauty BC can muster in  a single hour and we passed isolated, water-locked fish farms,  wondering what the inhabitants  do for excitement.  They wave at the ferry, we  found out.  Off the ferry in Saltery Bay,  the van slipped smoothly into  first and back onto 101, with  Shangri-La in Ihe offing.  Another half hour brought us to  Powell River, a smaller, more  pleasant town than expected,  except for its bleeding main  artery located just down from  the hospital.  Through Powell River, the  bit now firmly held between the  leeth, Lund was about 30 miles  further with no sizeable human  distractions along the way.  Closing in on the End of the  Road, we were still looking for  a sign of the town that hurried  calculations told us should be  under our wheels.  Banking a hard left toward  the ocean, the highway ended  rather abruptly by going off a  government wharf.  "Is this Lund?" asked the  incredulous Laura as we pulled  to a stop.  For my part, I was straining  my vision down the shoreline,  looking for more commercial  activity than the aging combination hotel, store, pub, restaurant,  and coffee shop on our right.  "I guess so," I responded.  "What does that sign say?"  At the foot of the wharf was  a large sign map and we vacated  the vehicle (lest we ended up  further than the end of the road)  and made our way over to it,  taking note of the multitude of  misshapen, inbred curs that  waggled up for a sniff.  "Things to do in Lund:" read  the welcome sign. "Visit Savary  Island" (located about 10 miles  off the Coast) was the first  offering, soon followed by  enticements to enjoy the  scenery, comb the beaches,  swim, look for wildlife, and so  on.  We saw what looked like  another enterprise across a  vacant lot facing the hotel. We  made for it and found it to be a  gift shop, closed for the winter.  A sign posted outside informed  us we were now in South Lund.  Back in the camper we  vowed to make the most of it.  Relaxation was what we wanted  and Laura had had the foresight  to bring a game of Yatzee.  And relaxation is what we  had, three days of it; short  strolls through the vacant campgrounds we stayed in (the  weather prevented longer forages), sightseeing as Lund's  tourist sign had suggested, and a  lot of Yatzee.  The return trip home was  largely uneventful.  It's a holiday to be recommended for those who are in  earnest about "getting away  from it all", who have no real  expectations of the End of the  Road, and who don't have the  money to fly to Mexico. And  sure as the road don't go no further, when you get back, everyone will ask "What's in Lund?"

Our next feature  will be shown on Jan. 12/92. Coast News, January (>, i wi  leisure  Film from Roberts Creek packs  an emotionally charged message  ky Kuril  An ambitious effort is underway by Roberts Creek locals to  produce a 10 minute film that  tackles head-on one artist's  interpretation of the malaise of  Western, if not all, culture -  patriarchy.  Seanna MacPherson and co-  producer Lori Hagan have been  working on the concept of  "Toothpic" since July of last  year. The film, destined to be  entered in the Canadian Film  Festival circuit, makes use of  computer graphics, live action  and found footage (appealing  images re-created for Him).  In the film, a computer-generated image of a small fellow  representing all things male in  the "constructed" world we live  in is loose upon the earth with a  large gun, destroying whatever  Thursday night  snooker at (libsons  and Sechelt Legions  Is being put to the  test as a doubles  league. Top shooter  Len Homenchuk, left,  is rinding the  competition tierce  but hopes their tour  team Legion Snooker  League will draw  more people looking  Tor a relaxing,  entertaining evening.  Joel Johnstone photo.  he contacts The world being  destroyed, ironically, is also a  creation (conceptually) of the  male figure.  The gun the figure fires  results in mass destruction on  the atomic level.  Not content with plaguing  the outside world, the tiny but  Ramboesque character enters  the home which, in the film, is a  place where animation succumbs to reality.  In the home,"Toothpic's"  only live actor, Barbara Corbctt,  is found doing domestic chores.  Glancing up from her ironing  she sees a reflection of Rambo  in the toaster, firing his potentially lethal weapon at her.  According lo MacPherson,  the woman, upon seeing the  male figure revealed in the  toaster, has three choices; she  can become a victim to male  domination, she can ignore him,  or she can react. Barbara reacts;  but to know how, it will be necessary to view the film.  MacPherson said there is a  challenge she appreciates in  working with short films that  comes from getting as much  message or impact across to Ihe  audience in as short a time as  possible.  "1 find when you're working  with short films you end up  working much more conceptually and much more abstractly  than if you were working with a  full length feature," she said.  "Every element has lo have  some significance."  The first of "Toiithpic's"  three segments was finished just  before Christmas when a filming crew of 18 "high quality"  volunteers spent a weekend  shooting. MacPherson said 10  volunteers were helping with  post production.  And volunteer effort is  appreciated by the artist - funding for the project is still in the  air MacPherson needs to come  up with something over $7,000  of the projected $10,000 budget.  Lack of funding, however,  doesn't deter MacPherson, it's  just a step in the process. It may  also give insight lo the name  she chose for her production  Company, Tightrope Productions.  "I'll raise the money," she  said, "I have to. It comes down  in will and desire, and 1 have to  make  Ihis thing no matter  what"  Concert  helps teen  mothers  Bing Jensen, winner of  'Children's Performer of the  Year' at the 1991 West Coast  Music Awards, has recently  released a brand new children's  album, Human Hands, and the  Sunshine Coasl Teen Parent  Education Association is benefitting from it here on the Sunshine Coast.  Shari finch calls Bing  "...the ultimate children's performer. He has a wonderful  child-like spirit and unique  sense of humour...", while Allan  Kellog in the Edmonton Journal  says Bing "...is a national treasure."  Wearing one of his numerous other hats, Bing has performed on the Coast with  Vancouver band 'Brain Damage'. On his last visit, he played  a fundraiser dance for the Teen  Parent Education Association,  and was only loo willing to  have the association sell his  new album as a fundraiser for  the program at Elphinstone Secondary School.  The association's program  has two components: one is  educational, with young mothers returning to high school to  work towards graduation; the  other is the provision of quality  daycare for their infants and  toddlers at Esprit, the daycare  located on the grounds at  Elphinstone.  The tape is available at Pastimes in Sechelt and Sayward  Books in Sunnycrest Mall. It  costs $13 of which $3 go directly to the Teen Parent Education  Association to support Esprit.  R0CKW00D  events  Community hall becoming too  expensive for locals?  New Year's Eve bomb dropped in Roberts Creek  BOX 2154  SECHEU, B.C. J  VON 3A0  CONTEST  by Stuart tumaloi  It was like being at the tail  end of an all-night party in  which some 200 guests had  been invited. The music was  still playing and about SO die-  hards still hung on, but the life  had gone out of them, really,  and so had the original high-  energy atmosphere. Those  remaining seemed to be waiting  for the sun to come up before  straggling home.  Unfortunately, the scene  depicted is not the aftermath of  night long festivities, but New  Year's Eve at the Roberts Creek  Hall, and the celebration, far  from being over, had only been  underway for an hour and a  half. At 10:30 pm, midnight  seemed an awfully long time  away.  The fifty-plus people at the  hall on the evening of December 31 were the few who dug  deeply enough into their pockets, wallets or purses to come  up with the seemingly outrageous fee of $25 to celebrate at  what was hoped would be a typical 'Creek' party, and to witness the Roberts Creek Blues  Band (RCBB) do their thing.  It's not like the RCBB aren't  good; they played well from 9  pm until they quit around 2 am  with only a moderate number of  breaks, but $25?  The Rolling Stones, AC/DC  and soon the Crash Test Dummies might command a day's  pay for the privilege of seeing  them in concert, but the RCBB  are not that much of a draw.  When the band stopped at 2 am,  there were only a half dozen or  so people remaining in the  building.  Those who attended the  dance were for the large part  people from outside the area  who heard the 'Creek' was the  place to be on New Year's Eve.  It usually is, but this year many  of the locals were apparently  scared away by the cost of the  whole thing.  In return for $25, aside from  the honest efforts of the RCBB,  those in attendance received  party hats and noisemakers,  streamers, and a platter of hors-  d'oeuvres (vegetable slices,  chips, bread and three or four  kinds of dip).  In contrast to New Year's  Eve, some respectably large-  name bands have appeared at  the hall in recent months, and  tickets have been in the neighbourhood of $12 each. Many  have grumbled while paying  even this but have done so  because the events have been in  the name of a worthy cause, like  saving the hall, etc.  And, in truth, ihe proceeds  from the New Year's "bash" are  to go to the Sunshine Coast  Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.  However, if the organizers  broke even they will have been  incredibly lucky.  If there is a more positive  aspect to the evening, it might  be found in the hope that New  Year's Eve, 1991 will serve as a  lesson for future Roberts Creek  "community events", a lesson  which places community participation and enjoyment on at  least a par with the desire for  profit.  1992 SUNCOASTER MAGAZINE CONTEST  Open to Sunshine Coast Residents  and Forge Members ,  CATEGORIES: Fiction and Non-fiction        4350 'Q  DEADLINE: Feb. 15,1992 PRlZ^  Entry Forms Available at Local Rook Stores     '  and Coasl News Offices in Sechell and Gibsons  NIGHT  January 13-March 16  YOGA WITH SARA GERRING  Beginners 6pm-7:30pin $58 85  Experienced 7:30-9:30pm $64.20  January 14 - March 17  fer 10 weeks  STRETCH FOR HEALTH &  FITNESS WITH ANNE GREGORY  Tuesdays 9:30am-t t :30am $64.20  January 14 - March 17  YOGA WITH CAROL BR0PHY  Beginners 6pm-7;30pm $58 85  Experienced 7:30-9:30pm $64.20  January 21 - March 10  torS weeks  WATERCOLOUR WORKSHOP  WITHLYALLNANSON  Instruction tor all levels  Tuesdays 9am ��� 12 noon $85.60  January 22-March 11  foc8 wMks  GUITAR LESSONS  WITH LYNN COHEN  Beginner adults only  Wednesdays 7 - 8pm $64.20  January 22 - March 11  KITCHEN CHEMISTRY FOR KIDS  WITH LYNN COHEN  Wednesdays 3:30-5pm $35  February 1  ANNUAL "FESTIVAL-  GARAGE SALE  Donate your treasures and  join the fun. 10am-3pm  ���  885-2522  THE ROCKWOOD CENTRE  The BACKEDDY  .Marine Pub  Egmont Marina Resort,  Friendly Country Legion  Thursday Night  Starting at 7:30 pm,  Ian.9th.

Canadians also  spent more than $25 million on  admissions lo Junior "A" games  for the Western hockey League,  the Ontario Hockey League and  the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.  Youth hockey registration is  increasing for both boys and  girls. About 410,000 Canadian  youngsters, including about  8000 girls, were registered in  amateur hockey programs last  year.  Despite its popularity, hockey is not our national sport -  that status belongs lo lacrosse.  The first recorded hockey  game was played in the mid  1800's between British soldiers  stationed in Kingston. Onlario  and Halifax, Nova Scotia.  During its infancy, hockey  was played on unmarked, outdoor rinks with no boards or  nets, just snowbanks and wooden goal posls. As shinny (as it  was known then) became popular across the country, leagues  formed in the 1900's, leading to  Ihe need for indoor rinks and  artificial ice. With the addition  of boards came the need for  protective hockey equipment,  and ihe rules evolved to provide  for penalties and off-ice officials (lime keepers and goal  judges).  The first formal set of hockey rules was developed in the  1870's by a group of students  from McGill University in  Montreal. The McGill rules  introduced a puck - a flat wooden disk - in place of a ball.  Early rules called for nine  players on each team instead of  six. and there were no shifts.  by Stuart Burnsids  Slump jumping, chain rap,  endo, strange sounding phrases  lo the ears of the uninitiated, but  very real terms for the Coast's  growing collection of sport  mountain bikers  Guy Bullen is the president  of Ihe Sunshine Coasl Off Road  Bicycle Association (SCOR-  BA), a non-profit organization  aimed at encouraging the efforts  of serious mountain bike riders  on the Coast.  Bullen started the  organization more  than a year ago lo, as  he puts it, "meet  other people who  were serious about  off-road riding."  He told the  Coast News initial efforts to  organize the club had different  results than lie expected in thai  a great number of people  showed up who were interested  in riding bikes but were not  altogether serious about strenuous off-road riding or competition,  "There were people ranging  from 10 to 60," Bullen said,  "and that wasn't really the idea  of Ihe club."  He said riding with cyclists  of such a random calibre didn't  help serious 'ofl-roaders' with  training because their efforts  wound up limited to the abilities  of the slowest members of the  group.  "Il just didn't work out,"  Bullen said. He noted, however, that alter a weeding out process, SCORBA now consists  mainly of a lew enthusiastic riders and even has sponsorship  from Sechell's Trail Bay S|H>rts  for the more dedicated riders  who want to compete in off-  road racing.

Also participating in that  race was another Trail Bay team  member, Cymbol Wells, a 21  year-old athlete who  Bullet) calls an  "incredible talent" in  the area of mountain  bike riding  "Sometimes when  I'm riding with  (Wells) and we're  going up a hill,"  Bullen said, "1 locus just on  making it to the lop while Cym  Ixil din's 'wheelies' all the way  up. It's like he's got lungs lhat  are better than other people's."  According to Wells, he has  only lieen in the s|)ort as a competitor for a year but won most  of his races in that lime period,  He raced his first season largely  in the Novice class Following  Novice is the Sportsman category, which is followed hy the  Expert class.  Because of his impressive  showing as a Novice, Wells has  propelled himself over the  Sportsman class lo land with  pedals flying among the  Experts; he will race in Ihe  Expert class in the upcoming  season of March through October.  "It's going to be lough," said  Wells, who is still recovering  from a shattered collar bone  received in a training accident.  "Right now there are about five  guys I know 1 have to beat."  He told Ihe Coasl News he  isn't training particularly hard at  Ihe moment, both because of his  still tender collar bone and  because he is waiting for a new  mountain bike that is to be provided hy sponsors in recognition of his effort and ability  However he says he's going 10  Iw ready for his first race when  the season starts at the end of  March.  Unfortunately for the average race participant, there isn't  much monetary gain from winning a race, according to  Bullen, certainly not enough lo  support a racer, but money can  be made by the really good riders.  He said that beyond the BC  racing circuit there is a calibre  of race called the Pro Elite in  which one competes in major  circuits in the Stales and  Europe.  The World Cup is the pinnacle of off-road bicycle competition, Bullen said riders from  over 40 countries participated in  last year's World Cup, testifying to the growing popularity of  the sport. This year the battle  for the cup will lake place in  Quebec.  Because of mountain biking's growing popularity,  Bullen seems optimistic about  the future of the sporl on Ihe  Coast, and said new members,  both male and female, are  always welcome to join SCOR  BA - as long as they're serious  riders  He said Junior riders (under  19) were also welcome because,  as he pin il, "The younger riders  are Ihe future of the sport."  Interested liders can get more  information about SCORBA  through Bullen at XX5-1956 or  by contacting Jeff at Trail Bay  Sports.  Going Away  on Vacation?

Second year for Women in Trades
1991 applications doubled, however, program may be discontinued
ky Stuart lumsMs
The Women in Trades (WIT)
program is now into its second
year after a success full first
year of operation.
WIT coordinator Judie
Myers told ihe Coast News
interest in the program doubled
from about iO applicants in
19*31 to around 60 for this year.
"Unfortunately," Myers said,
"we can only choose 16 women
to participate."
The program isn't for every
A'oman," Myers said, "Our students are special people...they
have to be a little more outgoing
than most people, they have to
be willing lo try hard."
WIT gives women hands-on
experience with a wide variety
of trades, from small engine
repair lo construction projects,
and everything in between.
"Il gives the women confidence in the trades," Myers said
of the program," It gives them
experience and lets them decide
if they want lo pursue a certain
trade as a career."
Despite the growing popularity of the program and the benefit it provides. Myers said it was
unlikely Ihe program would
continue in its present form
after 1992 because the federal
government agency responsible
for Ihe program's funding
doesn't view trades-oriented
women on the Coast as a large
pool of participants.
Women In Trades students learn proper technique for
hoisting sheets or plywood.

Rather than close the program if funding isn't available,
however, Myers said she's discussed the possibility of allowing men into the program to
ensure its continuation.
"We have talked to our project officer and he said the program could run again if we
include men," Myers said. "It
would be really interesting lo
see how many guys would
come out to a course like this."
Myers believes men could
benefit from the program in that
they often use tools and
machinery without really knowing what they're doing.
She said there is a life skills
portion of the program that
would also benefit men because
il teaches survival skills for suc
ceeding or at least coping in the
"1 think the program would
be more difficult with men,"
Myers said, "but if it worked,
men would come out of it and
benefit, and eventually the
atmosphere of the work place
(outside the program) could be
Gas conversion
grants available
More People Now Eligible for Natural Gas Conversion Grants
The BC Energy and Mines Ministry has announced an expansion of the government's "Clean Choice" grant program to help
residents of Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast convert to
natural gas from other forms of energy.
Eligibility for funding has been expanded, with a new $500
grant for installation of approved natural gas fireplaces and wall
heaters in homes heated by wood or electric baseboards.
Under the existing program, residents and small businesses can
still receive up to $700 in grants for installation of natural gas
forced-air and hot-water space heating systems. Rebates of up to
$200 are also available as an incentive to replace nil and electric
water heaters with natural gas.

A good year ahead for HSPP
Chlorine-light products are popular in environmentally sensitive market
by Stuart Burmida
Things are looking good for
Howe Sound Pulp and Paper's
(HSPP) chlorine free products,
according to HSPP President
Bill Hughes. "We can sell
pretty much all the pulp we can
make right now," he told the
Coasl News.

Not all Ihe new products are
completely chlorine free.
According to Hughes, the price
for completely chlorine-free
products is higher than for
products made with chlorine
whitening processes so, for
economic reasons, there are
varying degrees of chlorine
content available.
A new grade, dubbed FX, is
made with only a small amount
of chlorine compounds but,
nevertheless, serves to keep the
price down.
The new bleaching process
uses hydrogen peroxide as the
whitening agent. Hydrogen
peroxide breaks down into
oxygen and water.
Hughes said 2000 tonnes of
chlorine-free pulp, made during
production feasibility testing in
October of 1991, was shipped to
Germany in November as a
gauge for the potential demand
for the product. It sold before it
He said German markets,
along with markets in
Switzerland and Austria, would
be the destination for the bulk
of HSPP's chlorine free pulp
and accounted for about 25 per
cent of the mill's total export.
The new product will not
mean additional business for
HSPP, but will replace a portion
of the mill's existing product.
However, chlorine-free pulp
is sold at a higher price, making
it a more profitable venture.

Does your family know what your personal feelings are about
your funeral needs? Of course, It's natural everyone wants to
avoid talking about his or her funeral arrangements before their
time. However, people's attitudes are refreshingly more open to
dealing with these matters as we quickly approach the 1990S.
Today, people are preplanning their personal funeral preference
for the benefit of their loved ones. Show your family and loved
ones how much you care by preplanning your wishes now.

said. "We're the first mill in

Her  upstairs studio is bursting at the  seams with finished an works  and many others in varying  stages of completion. From  extruded plastics to mannequins  and gilded collages of birds,  Small's work in this garret  space spans three decades.  Her work is an eclectic collection with widespread exploration of media and subject  matter. There are wall to wall  images, some are part of a  series of "inner visions", others  are explorations in the recycling  of mundane materials, the kinds  of things most of us never see  as innately beautiful or even  capable of creative exploration.  With enough finished work to  open her own gallery, recently  Small talked about h-r beginnings and her life on the Const,  and about her changing role in  the arts community.  "I had been painting here  since we moved to Granlhams  from Vancouver in 1959. In  1966, Maryanne West asked me  if I had some paintings I'd like  to show in Sechelt. The Arts  Council had been formed by  then and they had a little building; it's gone now. The gallery  was about 10 by 12; and they  thought it might be nice to gel  some of the local artists to show  Iheir work. My daughter Jo was  about 12 and she had done some  sketches, so we had a mother  and daughter show. 1 got  involved with the gallery then,  and would go every Saturday to  sit.  "We had that building for a  few years and when it was sold,  the Arts Council moved the  gallery to the old Whittaker  house, which is where Pacifica  Pharmacy is now. Five or six  years later we started raising  money to build the Aits Centre,  because Whittaker house was  loo expensive to buy and renovate.  "We used to have a group  that met there al night. We  called ourselves the Sketch  Club. We would meet and look  at each other's work and talk  about it. But we realized we  didn't have any place to sell our  work. That was where the idea  for the gallery shop originated.  In '79 when they expanded  the upper mall in Gibsons, a lot  of businesses from lower Gibsons moved into the expansion;  so we were able to rent space  for the Gallery Shop, which  later became Hunter Gallery.  "Gradually the Arts Centre  was being built, partly as a log  house building project. It was  designed by Clarke Steabner  and opened in 1980.  "I've had two solo shows  BRrmrtitbrr 3111 hru  5 years ago  The Sunshine Coast experienced the highest tides in 50 years.  There were fears that Ihe tides, coupled with high winds, would create havoc. Fortunately, ihe winds only blew when the tide was low  and the Coast was spared.  10 years ago  Effective immediately, public transportation via the familiar white  community services Minibus will be available to Coast residents.  Although service is very limited in the first stages of the project, the  new service, called paratransit, will eventually provide transportation  at convenient limes from Egmont to Port Mellon.  15 years ago  The Coast News enters Ihe new year under new management. The  new company when incorporated will lie known as Glassford Press  Limited in honour of one of the pioneer families of Gibsons where  the Coast News office is located.  The entire slaff of the Coast News looks forward to serving the  communities of this area.  25 Years Ago  Resolutions, like piecrusts, were made to be broken. Janus, Ihe  two-faced mythological diety of ancient lore is the root word for January, the first month of the year. The fact that he is two faced contains a connotation which perhaps gives resolution makers an easy  out of living up to their resolve.  Perhaps resolution makers might come to within the present news  media hubbub known as the credibility gap. There will be a pronounced gap between resolution and performance.  35 Years Ago  The Powell River bus to Vancouver crowded with Christmas travellers plunged off the highway and careened down a steep, rocky  embankment in Ihe black of night.  It happened where (he highway runs by Ruby Lake between Earls  Cove and Kleindale near Pender Harbour.  The heavy vehicle rolled over three times for nearly 100 feel down  an almost perpendicular slope of jagged rocks and was saved from  going into the lake by a clump of trees which wedged it upright,  standing on its wheels, lights still burning though badly wrecked.  Oliver Dubois, well-known logging operator, brought stretchers  and a truck which served as an ambulance. Jerry Gordon also assisted  with transportation to rush the injured to hospital.

Joel Johnstone photo  there and have been fortunate  enough to be successful in 12  juried shows, and in five or six  provincial 'Images and Objects'  shows. In 1989, I won the  Gillian Lowndes Award."  When asked about the origins of her creative energy,  Trudy takes us back to her early  days in northern Ontario.  "I grew up during the depression, in the gold mining camps.  We moved a lot from mining  town to mining town, Kirkland  Lake, South Porcupine, Tim-  mins. Lots of people couldn't  pay the rent then, even though it  was only five or six dollars a  month. So they built houses on  the outside of town. They were  just tar paper shacks really,  nothing that would pass a building code today, that's for sure.  "When 1 left all of those  quaint little places to study art  in Toronto, it was quite a culture shock. I had been recommended by a teacher for the  College of Art. People didn't  really take art seriously then.  Most of the graphic art was  being done by Europeans.  Today you talk about art and  then you develop a piece and  you do il over and over again  until you're finished. It wasn't  like that then. You did all your  work in class. We worked from  9 am to 3:30 pm with a break  for lunch.  "In the early 50s 1 came to  Vancouver with a girlfriend for  her wedding. The wedding  didn't take place for several  months and although 1 had  planned to go back, I just never  In moving to the Sunshine  Coast, Trudy Ihought she would  escape Ihe torrential rains of  Vancouver. She recalls the challenges she faced.  "We lived in Granlhams for  three years until we found this  place on South Fletcher. It was  a summer house we were going  to renovate. The walls were  plank and for years friends of  my daughter would come here  after school and on Sundays and  we would do art. Painting,  sketching, we were inspired by  all sorts of things. And you  couldn't hurt the walls so it was  okay.  "It was hard to get art supplies here. I can remember taking old sheets, stretching them,  and covering them with white  house paint. They made pretty  good canvas. Sometimes I  painted on cardboard and paper  bags. I started recycling early.  Even today 1 recycle all kinds of  things into my work."  When asked about the future,  Trudy says she'd like lo have a  couple of shows in Vancouver,  bul she hasn't planned anything  definite yet. "My work is  always evolving, and 1 try lo  find new ways of seeing and  , j,using old or familiar objects."  Trudy still volunteers her  time every week at Hunter  Gallery, where she enjoys meeting new artists.  "In the last couple of years  there have been almost a hundred new artists and artisans  who have come to the Coast to  make it their home. It's really  quite wonderful to see."
