(^8o#1  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  April 1, 1980  Volume 34, Number 13  Pollution worse than thought  Gibsons Chamber accepts inevitable  by John Moore  "There's no way we're going lo gel back lo hiving in open dump  up there," Norm Peterson reported to the meeting ofthe Gibsons  ���nd Dhtrict Chimber of Commerce held Wednesday evening in  the Gibsons Legion Hill. Peterson observed thit leichile from  the dump, ciused in large pirt by the dlsposil of used oil on the  site, is i very reil problem md one which miy well continue for  some time in spite of the closure of the dump.  Peterson mentioned the possibility that the site miy in the  future be leised ind used is a burning site for selective residential  garbige, but slid, "We hive no viable alternative it present.  We've got no place else to go."  Barrie Reeves of Gibsons Building Supplies observed that the  effects of the dump closure are already being felt. Builders in  Gibsons irei hive silted that they will be passing the increased  cost of hauling construction debris ill the wiy to Sechelt for  dlsposil tlong to the house buyer, ind Reeves said he hid  personally noticed cumbersome garbage such as old mattresses  appearing in vacant lots around Gibsons.  "I feel we cannot let the issue rest here," slid President Arne  Tveit-Pettersen. "It is unfortunite that we did not react sooner, A  better solution thin just closing the dump and hauling the garbage  up there his to be found."  Possible alternatives were discussed. Barrie Reeves pointed mil  that I number of local entrepreneurs are thinking seriously aboui  going into the business of hauling garbage from a possihli  Gibsons depot to the Sechelt dump. Reeves also pointed out 11... t  Sunshine Coast Disposal are very flexible about what they will  remove ind this his helped prevent Ihe situation from  deteriorating more rapidly.  Other alternatives suggested were a recycling depot, possibly  with trash-compacting equipment or an incinerator, the heat from  which might be used to heat some public building. Barrie Kit us  made the observation thit such equipment and installations are  expensive ind, given the size of the area at present, would  probably not be in full time operation.  "Our problem is that we're in the middle," Norm Peterson  added. "We're big enough to hive the problem, but not quite big  enough to justify the solution."  "At this point, money is secondary," said Blaine tlagedorn.  Manager of Super-Valu, "it's the environment that's important."  They're off! A hardy group of runners sets out on the Third Annual April Fools Day Run from Gibsons to  Sechelt. All but three of the 31 starters this year finished the run.  Service to be reduced, commuter cards to go  BC Ferries to increase fares  Speaking at the meeting of  the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce held at  the Gibsons Legion Hall,  Wednesday last, Terry Amiel,  Chamber representative of the  Ferry Advisory Committee,  reiterated the bad news that  residents ofthe Sunshine Coast  and visitors alike can expect no  substantial change in ferry  scheduling until 1981 at the  earliest.  Though there has been a 30%  overall increase in ferry traffic  over the last three years and  local merchants expect a 20-  23% increase in business in the  year to come, ferry service is  actually being cut back. The  pending loss of resident card  privileges and an increase in  ferry fares in the very near  future.  "Residents and visitors alike  are going to be very incon  venienced," said President  important 7:40 a.m. sailing will  begin June 20 and end September 14 this year, beginning a  month later and ending a  month earlier than last year.  The present Monday morning  overloads for the 9:00 a.m.  sailing can be expected to  continue and the overall situation can only grow worse with  an influx of summer visitors.

Energy users the sufferers  Provincial government power play  by Joe Harrison,  Director, SCRD  Worried about sky-rocketing home heating bills? Hoping for  relief when the long promised natural gasline is built? Forget it!  Energy Minister, Robert McClelland dashed hopes for a gasline  in the near future when he met with A.V.I.M. members from the  Sunshine Coast, Powell River, Port Hardy, Courtenay, Port  Alberni, Nanaimo and Victoria on Friday, March 21.  McClelland indicated the project is on the back burner since the  matter will be referred to the new Project Review Process and  Public Utilities Commission.  "I was shocked to learn that we do not know what the total  energy requirements of Vancouver Island are!" said McClelland.  "We intend to institute a study to find out."  Representatives from Nanai-  energy available or necessary  mo pointed out that this will set  back the time-frame for the  line, perhaps years. They also  noted that a pipeline would  reduce the need for heavily  subsidized home heating oil  and more flooded valleys to  meet electrical demand on  Vancouver Island.  McClelland's stance raised  eyebrows amongst the Sunshine Coast delegation, members of which have long argued  that the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  electrical transmission line is "a  billion dollar shot in the dark"  since Cabinet made its decision  without knowing the total  energy needs of Vancouver  Island. It is incredible to believe  that the Province of B.C. has  embarked on the billion dollar  Cheekye project without knowing the precise mix of oil, gas,  electricity,   and   wasi   wood  or desirable on the Island.  McClelland did not rule out  the possibility of a gas line but  his message of delay was clear.  "We believe the government of  B.C. has a social obligation to  make the resources of B.C.,  including gas, available to all  citizens," said McClelland.  When questioned about just  which company would get the  nod to build the line McClelland spoke vaguely of the need  to "consider all the proposals"  and "a provincial interest to  protect" and "a detailed proposal from B.C. Hydro's Gas  Division due next month".  The implication is obvious  that Petro-Canada's Westcoast  Transmission which wants to  build a pipeline immediately  won't be allowed access to the  lucrative Island home heating  market which is to be reserved  for the provincial Crown  Corporation, B.C. Hydro.  "We're not like Peter Lougheed  who comes out with six guns  blazing," said McClelland. It  was also clear, however, that  McClelland is not to be duped  in the federal-provincial energy  wars, albeit that his approach is  more subtle. He knows full well  that energy sales are the main  source of revenue to finance  Hydro's electrical projects and  that the federal government is  looking to domestic energy  sales to finance oil exploration.  The new Petro-Can gas stations  are meant to launch the federal  agency into direct energy sales  lo the public. McClelland isn't  about to give away any juicy  plums even with a possible  Federal Gas Export Tax hanging over his head.  All of which adds up to bad  news for consumers on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine  Coast. They will be heating  with oil or electricity a while  longer even though: 1) gas is  cheaper; 2) a long term supply  is assured; 3) gas transmission  costs are one tenth of electricity; 4) underground gas lines  have less environmental impact; 5) gas reduces electrical  demand and the need for  flooded valleys and herbicides;  6) gas is Canadian; 7) gas  replaces imported subsidized  oil; 8) gas finances Canadian  energy independence in the  national interest; 9) gas prevents lost revenue for tax  incentives for oil explorations;  10) gas delays the need to  consider nuclear power.  Meanwhile the smoke curls  into the spring sky on the  Sunshine Coast as work continues on the Cheekye right of  way clearing. This white elephant of a project lumbers on  to its final destiny to supply all  those less than eager Vancouver Island customers waiting to heat their homes wilh the  electrical equivalent of $60  barrels of oil. Mr. McClelland  may be shocked that no one  knows the energy requirements  of the Island but I can guarantee he won't be anywhere near  as shocked as the residents as  they see their home heating  bills over the next five years.  The skies cleared on Saturday, morning and than Third  Annual April Fool's Day Run  from Gibsons to Sechelt took  place in brilliant sunshine. This  year's winner of the Coast  News Cup as first finisher was  the man who won it on the  inaugural run in 1978. Adrian  Belshaw, who also finished  second last year, completed the  14-mile run in one hour, 27  minutes and 12 seconds. The  winner's time was a little  slower than last year but a stiff  breeze at Davis Bay slowed  everyone down.  Constable Leith Skinner of  Sechelt was a strong finisher in  second place. Skinner was also  prominent last year. He finished just 17 seconds behind  Belshaw. Eighteen more seconds back in third place was  Gary Born who like Belshaw  travelled from Vancouver for  the run.  Thirteen year old Heidi  Brongers of Roberts Creek was  the first female finisher in a  time of two hours and nine  seconds. She was followed  closely by her 11 year old sister  Shelley.  In all, 28 ofthe 31 starters  finished the run. In order of  their finish behind the third  place Born they were Rob  Patterson of Vancouver, a man  called Munsie also of Vancouver, Hazen Knox of Gibsons, Bill Cowie of Vancouver,  Lonie Brock of Roberts Creek,  Dave MacLeod of Roberts  Creek, Rick Scott of West  Sechelt, Ron Higginbotham of  Sechelt, Kurt Scharf of Gower  Point, David Longman of  Roberts Creek, Sean Whalen of  Roberts Creek, Arne Petterson  of Roberts Creek, Brandon  Whalen of Rbberts Creek,  David Willoughby of Roberts  Creeks 'Wayne Robinson of  Gibsons, Heidi Brongers of  Roberts Creek, Darcy Young  of Sechelt, Shelley Brongers of  Roberts Creek, Sue Nichols of  Redrooffs Road, Lief Mjanes  of Roberts Creek, Ian Nicols of  Redrooffs Road, Lynette Willoughby of Roberts Creek, Lori  Brock of Roberts Creek, Stephanie Jackson of West Sechelt,  Joan Marshall of Sechelt.  Congratulations to the gallant finishers and to the three  non-finishers who gave it a  good shot, Timothy Laplante  and Jason and Jim Weir.  Arne Tcvit-Peltcrsen. A motion was made and carried that  the municipal councils ol  Gibsons, Sechelt and Powell  River be urged to make a joint  appeal to the provincial government at cabinet level to  rectify the situation.  "It's an ironic situation," said  Amiel, referring to Ihe presentation by Jim Price and diver  Jim Willoughby, concerning  the- increased tourist revenue  represented by the growth ol  the sport of scuba diving, "Here  we are trying to encourage  people to visit the Sunshine  Coast, and the ferry system is  making it harder for them to  get here."  The crux of the problem,  Amiel said, is that according!!)  B.C. Ferries figures, the femes  on the Langdalc-Horseshnc  Bay run are used only to 46?! <>l  capacity on an overall average,  "What this means," Amiel said,  "is that we have too many boms  when we don't need them and  not enough when we do.'  One of the oldest buildings in Gibsons goes under the wrecking ball. The old Pool Hall  on Marine Drive served the community originally in the first part of the century as the  Co-op store.  Coast News  retraction  In the February 26 edition of  the Coast News we ran a story  about arrests made in connection with the theft of $20,000  worth of equipment from Ihe  MacMillan Bloedel yard at  Avalon Bay.  We have since been informed  that Thomas Dennis, named in  the story, was not in fact charged  in connection with Ihe MacMillan Bloedel theft and would  draw this fact to Ihe attention of  our readers.

Ihe lares are going up; resident  cards arc to be withdrawn, and there is  actually to be a decrease in the service  despite the fact that last year wc had cars  backed up to the bottom of Granthams  Hill in the summer rush.  It is absolutely incomprehensible that  the provincial government should spend  millions of dollars on tourist promotion  and then by prohibitive fares make it  unlikely that visitors will get to visit some  of the most beautiful scenery in the  province and therefore in the world.  Nor is it any easier for us to understand  a government which boasts massive  surpluses continuing to take money out of  an already depressed economy. If $1  billion dollars can be found to replenish  Ihe forest denuded by the forest industry  surely they can afford to run the ferry  service within the affordable limits of a  travelling budget.  And while we are about it we find  strange that with the forest industry  boasting record profits that the taxpayer is  required to dig into his beleagured pockets  to replace the trees with which the industry  makes its profits. Forest management  seems to consist of the industry raking in  profits while the taxpayer replaces the  resource, presumably so that it can be  harvested again by the industry later. If the  farmers ever decided to manage their farms  the way the forest industry manages the  forest, heaven help us.  Well, well, there's a billion of our tax  money and they are also going to raise the  ferry fares. It is apparent that the Ferry  Committee meetings, with or without  elected representatives as members, are yet  another cosmetic exercise, the charade of  democratic consultation takes place and  the bureaucracy does what it pleases  anyway. What a wearily familiar game!  Now we have in fact a locally based  director on the board of B.C. Ferries, Mr.  J.K. Sorko of Soames Point. Mr. Sorko is  supposed to be the director who looks after  the interest of the Sunshine Coast and it  would seem at first glance that he is having  very little success in that regard. Not that  Sorko is entirely ineffectual. We understand he was successful last week in having  the ferry wait for him until he got off the  Naniamo ferry. Perhaps if Mr. Sorko were  to use the influence he possesses to get the  absurdity of schedule rectified which sees  the ferry for Langdale pull out five minutes  before the Nanaimo ferry docks we would  all be better served.  Perhaps if Mr. Sorko were as diligently  representing the interests of the Sunshine  Coast as he is pursuing privileges for  himself we would not this summer be  facing increased costs for diminished  service.  Pearse Report ignored  One of the interesting aspects of the  current controversy over possible changes  in the log salvage regulations, proposed in  Ihe Ministry of Forests White Paper on the  subject, is the source of the White Paper  itself. The introductory "History" page of  the White Paper makes reference to "the  previously expressed concerns of log  salvage permit holders, the licensee and  others".  Where are those "expressed concerns" to  be found? Apparently ignoring the most  recent review of all aspects of forestry  m British Columbia, the report of the  Royal Commission, the so-called "Pearse  Report" of 1976, which recommended that  funds generated through log salvage not be  used for debris control programs and  further that the large timber-cutters be  penalized for poor log control, the authors  of the White Paper seem to have chosen the  B.C. Research Council Report of 1974, two  years earlier, upon which to base their  recommendations.  Since many of the so-called "salvors' .  suggestions" listed in the B.C. Research  Council report are the very thinr>niW8r�� <  object to in the White Paper, and sitice'the  licensee Gulf Log, has denied it is an  "interested party", it leaves us to wonder  and to speculate upon who those "others"  who expressed concerns might be and to  whom the Ministry of Forests really  listens.  Noughts and crosses  Well, folks, the interest rates are going  up every week and we're going to be paying  substantially more for oil and gasoline just  as if the Conservatives had never been  defeated in the recent election.  We have said it before and will keep  reiterating it as long as it remains true.  There is no difference in philosophy  between the Progressive Conservatives and  the Regressive Liberals in this country. The  Liberals cover their outdated and bank  rupt philosophy with a shiny veneer of  adman polish whilst the Conservatives  serve it up straight with 19th Century  fervor, but once you get past the polish it  is the same unappetizing mess.  We told you so, and we are just liable to  keep telling you. A vote for either of the  two parties is a wasted vote. You might just  as well stay home on election day and play  noughts and crosses there.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  A single vehicle accident claims the  life of former Sechelt Indian Band  Chief Henry Paul.  The School Board is to examine  eight possible sites for the proposed  new Sechelt Secondary School.  The   idea   for  a  Sunshine Coast  Cultural Centre is starting to roll.  TEN YEARS AGO  Port Mellon Local 297 of the IBPS  and PMW has protested to the  provincial government in the strongest  possible terms about the totally  inadequate and inconvenient scheduling of ferries in this area.  The minimum wage in the province  of B.C. has been raised to $1.50 per  hour.  Residents of Gower Point voted  overwhelmingly not to oppose the  Gibsons sewer system because the  system calls for the installation of a  sewage treatment plant.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  B.C. Hydro customers will save more  than $7 million annually as a result of  electric rate reductions announced on  behalf of B.C. Hydro. Customers have  saved more than $50 million because  of rate decreases instituted by B.C.  Hydro since it came into existence  three years ago.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Action to get the Recreation Com  mittee moving has failed so far. The  normally quiet little backwater of  Gunboat Bay in Pender Harbour saw  an unusual flurry of activity recently as  a result of the coincidence of chimney  fires and a fleet of fire-fighters manned  by the wide-awake Volunteer Fire  Department.  In a letter to the editor, Mrs. Jen  Monrufet suggests that he. raise his  voice to seek a ban on the testing of  nuclear weapons.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  St. Mary's Hospital, Pender Harbour,  has instituted a drive to raise $20,000.  Kiwanis plans to erect a public  library building are laid before the  Gibsons Public Library Association.  An increase of 38% is reported in  school enrolment, from 807 pupils in  1950 to 1,112 in 1954.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  It may not be long before a swimming pool is constructed at Pender  Harbour. S. Anderson, chairman of the  committee reported that plans are  nearly complete.  Letters to the editor object to the  suggestion that Pender Harbour  students attend high school in Gibsons.

By that time, the area was crisscrossed with  skidroads that dated back to the 1880's, but wheeled transport was  restricted to a route now known as School Road, which branched atthe  then one-room Howe Sound School to form North Road and about a  mile of what is now the Highway. By 1910, added branch roads and  subdivision of land into building lots in the village made a cartage  business more or less viable. Household goods, firewood, and grain for  livestock and poultry constituted the main items conveyed along the  lower slopes of Mt. Elphinstone by this outfit. No motor vehicle  competition appeared until 1917, and horse-drawn carts, buggies, and  wagons could still be found in use 20 years later. The government  telegraph line seen in this John Hicks photo of Jeffery and his beautiful  horse indicates that the locale is somewhere along what is now Highway  101, possibly a bit east of Payne Road.

Colossus in the Coliseum  Generally speaking I am not  prone to hero-worship. In truth  I consider it rather a dangerous  business to bestow larger than  life status on anyone, Adolf  Hitler and Benito Mussolini,  for example. I think that we are  better off not to hope for some  strong and gifted leader to lead  us out of the desert and across  the Red Sea of our time. Each  man should be his own hero, I  am fond of saying, meaning  that we should all of us reach  for the best in ourselves rather  than basking in comfortable  mediocre niches hoping for  super-human beings to guide  our destinies. It's called self-  help.  Now having bent the knee to  this particular shrine of my  own, let me confess that I make  exceptions. My fancy is fired by  the occasional being who  stands magnificently out from  the forest of humanity in some  field or other and last Friday  night I journeyed to the  Vancouver Coliseum to catch  what is possibly a last glimpse  of one of my heroes.  Gordie Howe was in town  playing right wing and some  centre for the Hartford Whalers of the National Hockey  League. Gordie Howe turned  52 years of age on Monday of  this week and I seriously  suggest that in the entire  history of athletic endeavour  there may never have been his  like.  Right off the top, let's say  that Howe is playing right wing  and some centre for the Hartford Whalers because he is still  one ofthe better hockey players  that they have. Sure, his name  still fills seats around the  League. The Coliseum was full  whereas crowds have been  dwindling as the star-crossed  Canucks continue in earnest  ineptitude, but Howe is on the  team on his ability not as a  geriatric freak.  Even in the pre-game skate  one is struck by the anomaly  that is Howe. His grey hair is  neatly cut in the manner  current in the 1950s. He skates  in effortless circles occasionally  backwards.   Like  an  experi  enced fighter who ends the  rqund one step from his stool,  Howe is right by the bench  when the referee blows the  whistle to start the game and  without a wasted step he's on  the bench. It's a small thing but  it bespeaks the economy of  motion which has kept him in  the fastest and roughest game  in the world for more than 35  years.  The man is mortal and time  has slowed the step. He does  not dominate the game as he  did when I first saw him play in  Montreal a quarter of a century  ago. The once-feared wrist shot  is not in evidence and one  remembers that seven or eight  years ago when he retired from  the Detroit Red Wings he gave  the reason as arthritis in the  wrists. He is not a happy  convert to the slap shot and he  misses possibly three goals he  would have scored in his prime.  He gets no goals this night  though everyone wants to see  him get one. He records no  assists. He is a journeyman  hockey player now, almost one  of the crowd.  Almost. For if you watch  him closely you can see the  magic that made him the  greatest player in all facets of  his game that ever lived. Watch  him break over the blue line  carrying the puck in his straight  up and down stance for all the  world like a Presbyterian  minister out for a Saturday  afternoon skate. See that pass.  He lays it the width of the rink  right on the stick of the  onrushing left winger and you  know what the adjective 'feathery' means when applied to the  propulsion of a piece of frozen  rubber across a frozen surface.  In a game as rough as hockey  the skills of self-defence are a  necessary part of a hockey  players personal equipment  and this, too, is an aspect of the  game that Howe has dominated throughout his career.  Watch that feisty young Vancouver Canuck race at him as  the old man with the grey hair  brings the puck out along the  boards from behind his net.  Just as the collision is imminent  and the young buck is about to  crush the grey haired gentleman against the boards, if you  watch closely you will catch a  glimpse of the most famous  elbows in hockey in action.  As fast as the tongue of a  striking snake the elbow (lashes  up and-instead of a grey haired  gentleman crumpled against  the boards the young Canuck is  on the ice groping for his  helmet and wondering what  happened. Through it all Howe  is cradling the puck on his stick,  upright and looking for someone to pass lo. The referee sees  nothing amiss and Howe clears  [he puck in methodical fashion.  They treat him like a hockey  player and the Canucks are a  hitting team. Howe stands on  his skates through several  violent collisions. He doesn't  throw many body checks, at  his age you can't expect it. But  he still keeps score. Just a few  minutes before the end of the  game he skates in pursuit of a  Canuck defenccman 30 years  his junior. Suddenly the Presbyterian minister becomes a  panther. He crouches low,  takes two swift steps and drives  People on the west coast  generally take a great deal of  arrogant pride in the fact that  spring tends to come here  earlier than other parts of  Canada. To hear your average  west coaster talk, you'd think  he was personally responsible  for the chirping ofthe birds, the  sprouting ofthe flowers and the  mating of the critters.  The most obnoxiously arrogant of them all is the citizen  of Victoria. He starts looking  for the first signs of spring  around New Year's day and  he'll refuse to rest until he's  driven his convertible, top  down, through a vicious January sleet storm, played golf in  the snow or strolled in his shirt  sleeves along trie waterfront on  a cold windy February weekend.  I strongly suspect that more  Victorians have died from  exposure under the mistaken  assumption that spring had  arrived than the number killed  in all our foreign wars.  Believe it or not, in Victoria  they have a week in February  during which they count all the  flowers.

We used to  receive this service but for some  unexplained reason Mr. Chamberlain of Sunshine Coast  Disposal Services made the  autocratic decision that he  would no lonj'er make a pickup on our froniapc road. I tried  (o speak with him in oidci to  find out what the problem was  and received a stream of  Invectives for my trouble.  ; I have tried to speak to the  people in the Regional office  and all I receive is polite  indifference. My next move was  to go to an elected official.  Director David Hunter, chairman ofthe P.U.C. from whom I  received the same .sort of  treatment that I got from  garbage man Chamberlain.  Now I would like to make it  quite clear that at no time have  I been high-handed or rude in  my approach to these people  and yet their reaction has been  instant and violent. What is the  reason? Why can't they give me  a civil answer?  I have come to the conclusion that the taxpayers in  this area are being taken for a  ride. Why does the same  company receive the contract  for garbage pick-up from year  to year? Why didn't Dick  Derby, who had done a great  job in keeping the sites clean  and tidy, not get his contract  renewed like the pick-up people  do year after year?  It is interesting to note that  Mr. Hunter and Mr. Chamberlain are close friends and  neighbours!  The ironical part of this  whole sorry story is that a few  years before the Sunshine  Coast Regional District came  into being, I and a number of  civic-minded people spent  about three frustrating years  trying to set up a garbage pickup and disposal service from  Hopkins Landing to Egmont.  It was called Ihe Anti-Pollution Board and the chairman  was Frank Wyngaert of Gibsons and I was chairman ofthe  Site Committee. We had to  disband when the provincial  government told us that they  were promoting the formation  of regional districts that could  assume this function.  Subsequently when the Sunshine Coast Regional District  was formed they used the data  and information that my Site  Committee had provided in  setting up their disposal sites.  Vince Bracewell  Past executive offers corrections  Editor:  The publicity report of the  Pender Harbour Community  Club March 18 warrants an  answer. Boards of Directors  have not given up in despair but  have kept working for the  benefit of the community,  sometimes against insurmountable odds.  The Pender Harbour Community Hall was built over 30  years ago by the work of  volunteers.and residents who  purchased bonds to finance it,  and has been maintained by  voluntary means ever since, not  by taxes. "Anyone who pays  taxes" has no bearing on the  function of the Community  Hall, it belongs to the members.  There are too many people in  Pender Harbour who feel the  facilities of the Hall should be  free. They seem to lose sight of  the fact that it does cost money  to operate; heat, electricity,  janitorial service, maintenance  and repairs. The policy of the  Community Club has been to  allow youth groups use of the  Hall gratis. Is it too much to  expect parents of the youngsters involved to join the  Community Club and help  with the fund raising projects?  At all the general meetings in  recent years the consensus of  the members has been to try to  get people using the Hall to  help. You see, there are some  people who are also getting  "browned off" at doing the  work and giving their time to  keep the Hall operating.  Through the years the Community Club has sponsored  events for young people;  sports, movies, roller skating,  pool, teen dances, etc. The  biggest problem was lack of  adult help for supervision;  again it was only a few people  who would give their time.  It is very interesting to read  the reports in the local newspapers of the Drama Clubs  plans to renovate the Community Hall. It would be nice if  Community Club members  were made aware of such a  plan. There was a general  meeting in February. The stage  cannot be enlarged to take  away any more floor space, as  all the existing area is needed  for the various events held at  the Hall.  The Community Club plays  a vital role in this area, has  provided a large hall for the  benefit of all organizations, but  there has to be more help and  support to keep operating.  Muriel Cameron  by Don Lockstead, MLA  The government has ordered  that municpal tax notices must  include a statement that the  taxes would be higher if it were  not for the financial contribution from the province. Even  Mr. Vander Zalm, the minister  responsible for the addition  was given to concede that it was  "not entirely non-propaganda".  The NDP would have, no  objection to this statement if  the government would also  send a statement to property  taxpayers pointing out the  increased monies they will be  paying out courtesy of the  Socred-led education ministry.  This is the fifth year in a row  that the government has increased the basic mill rate  which is applied equally across  the province to raise local funds  for education. The B.C. School  Trustee Association estimate  that the 1980 increase will cost  local taxpayers an extra $81  million.  In 1975 the then NDP  government contributed nearly  50% of the cost of the basic  education program but five  years later under the present  Socred administration the  province's share has dropped  to 28%. In 1975 the basic mill  rate was 26.5 mills. The just  announced 2.5 mill increase  will put the 1980 figure at 43.5  mills.  The difference in land values  in the province leads to even  more inequalities. A recent  study of the Greater Vancouver  Regional District found that  homeowners in the metropolitan area paid 47% more in  school taxes than elsewhere in  the province because of higher  land values.  The Socred government's  only solution to the present  chaos of school finance is a  yearly increase of property  taxes. The Bennett government  is clearly abdicating its responsibilities to provide for the  school system.  A letter and a wee story from The Postie  Editor's Note:  Three yearsJ ago we" "Were  fortunate to make the acquaintance of a truly remarkable  man visiting from Scotland���  Postie Sinclair���about whom  we subsequently wrote an  article.  Last week we were delighted  to receive the following from  Postie and are pleased to share  it our readers:  Tilandfield "-Bonar Bridge  Scotland  The wee birds sing and the  wild flowers spring, responding  to the miracle of Spring. Aye!  the, wee birdies have been  singing these past two weeks,  but ww never take for granted  their melodies, poured out so  joyously. The pure golden  notes with which the blackbird  greets dawn and dusk ever  anew, delight the listening ear  and revive the winter-weary  heart.  Our February, being unusually mild, encouraged that early  chorister, the Chaffinch, to  perch on the top most branch  of the plane tree and so  proclaim his rightful ownership  of his territory. Wc feed him  well, so his thanks consists of  generous snatches of song,  sweet piercing, and oh, so  welcome!  Our migrants will soon be on  their way to make loud the  corridors of Heaven with their  resonant cries. They may not  sing madrigals, but their wild  echoing notes usher in spring  with such ecstasy as to insure  our human welcome to their  coming.  Then follows all our Warblers with their glorious cadences falling from every flowering  tree or bush.  Other pleasures may fade  with the advancing years, but  spring's eternal miracle becomes the more wonderful with  the passing years.

She was aware of my addiction  to poaching, saying, "Postie,  you will revel in this article".  Yes! We did. Now I am to  reciprocate with an excellent  poaching story from a retired  Doctor of Divinity (wc were  laddies together in the 1914-18  disturbance), who has retained  that gift of story telling.

Cheerfully, Sincerely,  The Postie  THEM WERE THE DAYS!!!  Willie Johnston, the local  poacher, stood at the back door  of the Manse on a wet Saturday  night. He had knocked loudly to  attract Ihe old minister's sister,  who kept house for her brother.  Soon there was the noise of  doors opening, and Miss Maggie  Davidson, lamp in hand, swung  open the back door, and to save  further talk, Willie said, "It's  me, Willie Johnston. Can I see  his Reverence?" "My brother's in  his study finishing off his  sermon. I doubt if he'll see you,  but I'll go and see," and off she  went, leaving the back door ajar.  Old Dr. Davidson looked up  as his sister entered the study.  He almost shouted at her,  "What's wrong now. You know I  don't like to be disturbed when I  am at my sermon on a Saturday  night. What is it?" "It's Willie  Johnston al Ihe back door, I  think he's in a spot of trouble."  Dr. Davidson, like his sister,  was sympathetic to those in  trouble, so he rose from his seat  and went lo Ihe back door.  "What trouble are you in now,  William," he asked as he came  face lo face wilh his visitor. "Oh,  your Reverence," explained  Willie, "I was caught today for  daylight poaching of salmon,  and I have nothing lo pay my fine  with on Monday morning."  "How much will it be?" asked  the old minister.  "Three guineas," replied Wjjr-  lie, at which Dr. Davidson took -  his wallet from his inside pocket,  and extracted three one pound  notes and from his purse a  further three shillings. Handing  them to Willie Johnston, he said,  "Here you are, William. See that  you appear. Don't let me down."  With profuse thanks, Willie  turned on his heels and was off  down the Manse avenue.  On Monday morning Willie  Johnston duly appeared, and to  the great surprise of everybody,  pled guilty when charged with  daylight poaching of Salmon. To  the even greater surprise of those  present, when he was fined three  gunieas he produced the sum and  left the court a free man.  On Wednesday morning, as  Dr. Davidson examined his mail  he found a letter addressed to  him from the Sheriff Clerk  enclosing postal orders to the  value of three guineas, with a  note which said, "Enclosed  please find postal orders to the  value of three guineas���a fine  imposed on William Johnston  for daylight poaching of Salmon, and sent lo you for distribution to the poor ofthe Parish."  This latter transaction had  already been completed, so Dr.  Davidson put the postal orders in  his wallet.  That ought lo be Ihe end ofthe  story, but I should be guilty of  not telling the whole truth if I did  not add that on Ihe following  Saturday evening as the Rev. Dr.  John Davidson was locking Ihe  back door of Ihe Manse, he  slithered over something which  turned out to be a lovely 12-  pound Salmon Delta Fowwer.

When the wind stops blowing and the season is right,  Victoria is as fine a city to visit  as you're likely to find. The  parks, public buildings, museum, historic sites demand a  visit every few years. The city  grows so fast and changes so  quickly that if you haven't seen  it for five years you would  discover quite a change.

Dazedly, I recognize it as Spud  Island Jerry's. "Don't do it,  Pat!" he pleads. "Those fellers  were drunk when they jumped  you. They ain't worth hangin'  for, bye!"  I guess Jerry's been as close  to Orban as it's possible to get  to a loner like him. For just a  second, ihe Maritimer's words  seem to penetrate the black  wall of his fury. "Slay the hell  out of this!" he growls. But the  unexpected distraction has  made him hesitate for an  Instant, That instant is enough.  One of the three men Orban  has cornered, lunges sideways  and grabs the hiker's knife arm.  The point of the bayonet draws  a thin line across the near-  victim's neck bul il is only a  shallow scratch. The lension is  broken. The paralyzed crowd  comes back to life. Several men  jump up and grab Orban from  behind. There is flurry of  shouting and struggling bodies.  Orban is still gripping the  bayonet as though it were a  part of his arm. Then someone  cracks him over the wrist with a  beer bottle and it drops to the  floor. He goes down under the  combined weight of several  men and is held pinioned. "Call  the bloody cops in Squaw  Landing!" hollers someone but  the bartender is already on the'  phone.  "God, I feel sick," says  Annie. "Let's get out of here.  You can walk me up the hill."  Careless of gossip, we slip out  the door together. In ail the  uproar, no one even notices.

We go hand  in had up the series of paths and  stairways that climb the steep  ground behind the plant. But  the ugly business at the Legion  has short-circuited any  thoughts of incipient romance.  1 feel oddly detached; in a state  of shock. Here I am, alone at  last with the heroine of my  fantasies and all I can think  about is Pat Orban. Hell, he  could just as easily have gone  after any of us if we'd happened  to rub him the wrong way.  "What do you figure is wrong  with him?" wonders Annie. "He  was just like a wild beast!"  "He's been building up to it  for weeks," I say. "God knows,  those guys were out of line but  he was spoiling for trouble  before that. Guess he's some  kind of psycho."  "What do you figure will  happen to him?"  "Depends what they charge  him with. I guess he'll do some  time for sure. He's goddamn  lucky Jerry spoke up when he  did or he might be facing a  murder rap!"  Finally, we arrive at her front  gate. "Listen," she says, "I'd  invite you in for a drink but  Sandy'll be home soon and I've  got to fix him something to eat.  Give me a kiss and then we'd  better call it a night." She comes  into my arms and we embrace  in a way that is definitely .not  platonic. "I'll see you again  soon," she says. She turns and  walks towards the house, opens  the door without looking back  and closes it behind her.  Despite the kiss, I get the  definite impression that things  have subtly changed. I walk to  the bunkhouse with my mind  full of mayhem, frustration and  second thoughts. For all I  know, Big Sandy might harbour violent tendencies too.  Pat Orban is taken to Squaw  Landing and charged with  assault with a deadly weapon.  Later, he will draw five years  because of a previous record. A  few days after this, I get a call  from my brother, Chris, who is  on holiday in Vancouver. For  some time now, he has been  urging me to join him in  Kitimat, that much-ballyhooed  town of shining opportunity. I  have hedged up to this point,  not really wild about the idea of  going that far north. I go in to  see him and this lime he gives  me a real sales-pitch. When you  come right down to it, I haven't  done much at Cinnamon River  except get drunk, squander  money and fall in love with a  married woman. You couldn't  exactly say that I've been  advancing myself.  Except for a few fleeting  reservations, Chris just about  has me talked into it by the time  I return to the mill town. There  is really only the problem of my  drunken boat to deal with. I  find that this has already been  partly solved. Al and Spud  Island Jerry are waiting at the  dock, looking more than a little  sheepish. "Listen, bye," says  Jerry, "it's about that dory of  yours. We borrowed it while  you was away. Hit a deadhead  or something on the way home  from Squaw. Afraid we stove a  bit of a hole in her. Damn near  never made it back to the  boom. We was going to get it  fixed for you but the feller who  looked at her said half the  wood's rotten and she wasn't  worth mendin'. Guess you got  sold a bit of a lemon there,  bye."  I can't really get mad. Hell,  we could all have drowned in  the damn thing. If nothing else,  it makes up my mind about  going to Kitimat. At least  they've managed to save the  kicker. 1 leave it for sale on  consignment at the local store,  clean out my room and pick up  my time. En-route to the dock,  I run into might-have-been  Annie. We gaze at each other  wistfully. "Sorry you're going,"  she says. "Maybe we'll see each  other again someday."  "Yeah, maybe we will," I say,  knowing it's sadly unlikely.  Some things are just not meant  to happen. I climb the gangplank and take my leave of  Cinnamon River.  Now, two decades later, the  memories shiver back into the  ruins around me. Oddly,  through an oldtimer still at the  plant, I learn something of  what befell my vanished companions. Little Al apparently  returned east, got somehow  involved in a robbery and  ended up doing seven years. So  much for Pasadena Playhouse.  Pat Orban, paradoxically,  underwent extensive psychiatric treatment in jail, emerged  a changed man and went to  work in his father's firm. Spud  Island Jerry wound up running  a pub back in P.E.I, with a wife  and five kids. And Annie?  What of dazzling Annie? She  and Sandy moved to a mill on  Vancouver Island and had a  couple more daughters.

Some months ago, while  ferreting around in the midden  colloquially known as "the  Editor's desk", I discovered a  copy of the paperback re-issue  of Lester R. Peterson's The  Gibsons's Landing Story (PMA  Books. $7.95).  Originally published by the  same firm in 1962, this 1979  second printing has been  undertaken in response to  reader demand. The book is  not�� revised edition, except for  ihe author's "Foreword to the  Second Printing", in which he  deals wilh several minor errors  which crept into the original  text and some of the criticisms  levelled at the book when it first  appeared.  Somehow" The Gibson's  Landing Story found its way  into that stack where I keep  books waiting to be read, a  sort of literary La Brea Tar Pit  into which epic novels, voluminous histories and whole sets  of-encyclopedia have been  known to vanish without a  trace. Before the whole stack  conies tubling down and buries  me in an avalanche of poetic  justice, I'm thinking of having  it bronzed and erected as a  public monument; Moore's  Monument to Procrastination.  By fortuitous and appropriate coincidence, I re-discovered  the book in the process of  moving to Gibsons. When Fate  takcs.a hand,.mere mortals can  but follow obediently, so the  other night I. flopped into my  favourite cnair and read The  Gibson's Landing Story.  In the "Foreword to the  Second Printing", Peterson  observes that a reviewer in 1963  found too great an emphasis on  geology, archaeology and  world history in the book. The  first three of the six chapters are  devoted entirely to these subjects. Having just read the  book, my impression is that its  strongest point is the time  devoted to the physical formation of area, its early native  inhabitants, aridits "discovery"  by Europeans.  Since the first known instance of land ownership by  Europeans on the Sunshine  Coast, a little over a hundred  years ago, equal time for nine  thousand years of settled  occupation before that, not to  mention the gulf of geological  time, seems just barely fair if  anything. The essence of history is to enable the student to  gain some glimpse, admittedly  incomplete, of a place as it was,  and to thereby enable him or  her to draw some conclusions  about how it became what it is.  In this respect, Peterson has  succeeded admirably. In the  last couple of days, i've found  myself looking around the  Sunshine Coast with new eyes  trying to see how geographical  formations, previously regarded only as leg-straining obstacles between point A and B,  have determined the nature of  the place. The record of the  early settlement patterns is  likewise essential lo any understanding of why people live  where they do today.  Contrary, I suspect, to most  reviewers, I found the first  three or four chapters to be the  most interesting. On a first  reading, my only complaint  was that the chapter on the  development of the settlement  seemed, if anything, a bit dry.  The people and the events are  all there, but I think that the  busybody in me was looking  for some glimpse of their  personalitites. Having thought  about it. I concluded thai Mr.  Peterson has quite properly  resisted  ihe lemptation to  indulge in "history as gossip"  that is always the snare laid tor  the local historian.  As he says in the Foreword  to the orginial edition: "History  is invariably written by the  wrong generation. Those who  live through an event stand at  too close range to perceive it  whole and in perspective; those  who come after miss the life  that coursed through its departed veins. The record of an  age is no more the age than is a  footprint the creature who  made it." These sentiments, I  imagine, have prevented the  author from succumbing to the  urge to "update" The Gibson's  Landing Story prematurely. He  continues to be very active  however, collecting and collating historical material and  contributing to the Coast  News.  As it stands, The Gibsons  Landing Story takes the reader  up to the year 1962, which is, by  another odd coincidence, exactly the time at which I first  became aware of Gibsons  Landing. I was 12 years old  then, on fishing trips with my  father, and spending the night  aboard our 16 ft. boat in  Gibsons harbour was a great  adventure. Though my father  died the next year and the  fishing trips stopped forever, I  never forgot this place. It  lingered in the back of my mind  for almost two decades like a  boy's dream of summer. In an  odd way I always felt comfortable, at home, here and now,  by twists of fate too tangled to  unravel, I find that I live here.  My friend Karen and I are  not likely to be the "newest"  newcomers to the Sunshine  Coast for long, the way the area  is growing. The Gibson's Landing Story should be on the  required reading list for visitors  and prospective residents alike.  All for now.

The Struggle to unionize the banks  An Account to Settle  An Account to Settle  Ainsworth et al,  Press Gang Publishers  by Howie White  Few labour struggles of  recent years have captured the  imagination of the Canadian  public as did the battle between  Canada's giant banking industry and the tiny, independent women's union, SOR-  WUC. Lifce a nineteenth century melodrama where the  defenceless but incorruptible  young maiden is victimized by  the unscrupulous moneylender  in top hat and waxed moustache, the story was acted out in  the media daily throughout  1977 and 1978, but just as our  heroine was writhing, bound  and tied before the onrushing  train the story died and we were  all left hanging.  Now Press Gang Publishers  of Vancouver has come to our  rescue with a well-produced  little book entitled An Account  to Settle, the story ofthe United  Bank Workers (SORWUC).  Told in the words ofthe young  bank workers who carried on  the fight, the completed story  makes moving, illuminating,  and alarming reading.  The Service, Office, and  Retail Workers Union of  Canada, which is still active  among restaurant and office  workers in the lower mainland  but maintains only a handful of  members in banks has its roots  in the women'.s movement of  the early seventies. This made it  a particularly apt champion of  the bank workers who are  predominantly young women  suffering the problems typical  of working women in our  society and at the same time  gave it a strong sense of  alienation from the labour  establishment represented by  the Canadian Labour Congress  (CLC). In the end it was their  failure to strike up a working  relationship with the rest of  organized labour as much as  the shocking anti-unionism of  banks that lead to the Bank  Workers downfall.  SORWUC's bank drive was  started in the summer of 1976  by Jackie Ainsworth, a union  activist who was and still is a  ledgerkcepcr at the Victory  Square branch of the Canadian  Imperial Bank of Commerce in  Vancouver. As the book makes  clear she did not foment anti-  employer feeling but only  sought to enlist union support  in fighting conditions that were  already causing open rebellion.  As in all banks, the junior staff  at  Victory Square were ex  pected to work unpaid overtime whenever asked and the  matter came to a head when a  teller who was a single mother  insisted on leaving at 5:00 p.m.  because she had to pick up her  child at daycare.  In addition to involuntary  unpaid overtime the bank  workers put up with a host of  other conditions most unionized workers would consider  throwbacks to the dirty thirties:  they had no coffee breaks;  layoffs, promotions and transfers were made on an arbitrary  basis without regard to seniority; there was no paid sick leave  and employees needing medical  leave were asked to resign;  there was no effective grievance  procedure and there was no  consistent wage scale���in Ains-  worth's branch no one was  surprised when an inexperienced new teller was found to  be drawing higher pay than the  head teller who had been on the  job a year and a half. Although  part of their job was to train  inexperienced young men on  their way up the management  ladder, women did not themselves enjoy good prospects for  advancement. At the clerical  level 83.9% ofthe workers were  women while at the managerial  level only 3.9% were women.

IN SECHELTS TRAIL BAY CENTRE  SORWUC formed a bank  local called the United Bank  Workers (UBW), signed up 400  members from B.C. and Saskatchewan, and on June 14,  1977 won a historic decision  from the Canadian Labour  Relations Board allowing them  to become certified bargaining  agents for bank workers on a  branch-by-branch basis. (Previous to this decision the banks  maintained a majority of all  bank workers across the country would have to be signed up  before any union could be  certified���an impossible task.)  At this point SORWUC felt the  bastion had fallen and set  about drawing up a list of  demands to be presented in  contract negotiations. It was a  heady time.  As it turned out, this was the  peak of the union's success.  They had been complaining  earlier in the campaign that the  banks were refusing to take  them seriously, but now the  banks began taking them  seriously indeed, hiring a  professional labour fighter  from Chicago to co-ordinate a  counterattack aimed at crushing the union. At the same time  the CLC began pressuring its  B.C. affiliates to stop contributing funds to the SORWUC  campaign and began to undercut their organizing efforts by  urging workers lo join the  Office and Professional Employees Union (OPEU), a U.S.  based union which had never  shown any interest in bank-  workers.  In a chapter headed "Organizing the Sunshine Coast", the  authors write, "Events on the  Sechelt Peninsula over the next  year were like a microcosm of  the bank organizing campaign  as a whole. Bank management  in this area tried every possible  means to defeat the union".  At the Royal in Sechelt,  management sided with the  OTEU and persuaded every  employee but one to sign a  letter resigning from the UBW,  although they were never  signed by the OTEU.  In the Commerce at Gibsons  four out of five signed with the  UBW. The manager called a  meeting to say that he had  decided to ask for a transfer,  and that if he couldn't get it, he  would resign. Everyone felt  terribly guilty and several  employees were in tears. No  one resigned from the union  however, and it turned out the  A Country Candy Store  Selection ol  Eaater Chocolates  Bunnies, Baskets  & Eggs....

Later the union read in the  Financial Post that; "Managers  have been given 'canned'  speeches to present their staffs,  complete with built in 'pauses'  where they were supposed to  get emotional".  The Gibsons Commerce  branch was certified and went  into contract negotiating but  management continued its  efforts to defeat the union on  the home front.

Coast News, April 1,1980  Trustees must not be passive  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne Wesl  The School Board apparently sees its job as providing "the  greatesi good for the greatest  number". A good slogan, but it  may well be a cop-out. We arc  too easily led to believe that  this, in a nutshell, is what  democracy is all about. Fortunately, the realities of life  aren't that simple. Fortunately,  because otherwise il would be  too eas> lo have us all ruled and  regulated, organized and programmed.  Ai whatever level, the an of  governing in a democracy is,  surely, more often Ihe ability to  persuade majorities to address  themselves to the needs of  minorities than the simple  implementation of a majority  vole. When this son of leadership is lacking a democracy  quickly disintegrates into an  each-man-for-himself-devil-  take-the-hindmost society.  The larger the population the  greater the temptation for  administrators to hide behind  statistics, figures and policies  rather than come to grips with  the real issues. Statistics may be  a useful tool for commodities,  if we allow them to be used to  classify people we shall soon  find ourselves treated like  commodities.  The School Board's response  to the desires of Sechelt parents  to expand their secondary  school, is a case in point.  The Board's seven-page brief  is devoted to facts and figures,  population projections, government policies, criteria and  requirements, with one tiny  half-paragraph where mention  is made en passant of the social  and human factors which may  be involved.  Now, obviously all these  government requirements etc.  have to be considered and its  the Superintendent's responsibility to make sure we are  aware of them. But surely we  expect our senior educational  officer to have an understanding of, and a commitment to  the whole child and the community of which he is an  integral part? If he doesn't have  that "hands-on" feeling for the  whole spectrum of needs of our  growing children then that's  what Trustees are for. To tell  the government, look you guys,  your rules are all very nice, neat  and tidy but they just don't  meet our needs on the Sunshine  Coast.  But nowhere in this brief is  there any indication that one  might be able to do things  differently, that anyone is  prepared to explore ways  ' around the regulations, and  there are always ways around  i regulations, no suggestion that  there is any flexibility even if we  are willing to pay for it. And, if  the Sechelt meeting, so carefully organized to avoid real  communication, is an example,  no encouragement to believe  that any study undertaken by  the Board will involve all those  concerned in Sechelt and  Gibsons or come to grips with  the social and personal needs of  the children.  We've been led to believe  that education is prescribed  courses, pre-packaged to be  used only in specialized buildings, the same whether you live  in Vancouver, Vanderhoof or  Vernon and whether you're of  European, Native Indian, Oriental or African descent, wiih  the natural corollary that the  more courses offered and the  more complex and sophisticated the schools and the  equipment, the better the  education.  I don't think that's necessarily true and certainly it  bears re-assessment as wc go  into the '80s with criticism of  the system coming from every  quarter.  I'm doubtful we do our kids  any favour by offering them so  many choices, or by herding  them together in factory type  schools, for the economic  benefits, where the difficulties  are magnified for those who are  unsure of themselves, who  maybe lack social and communication skills, who have  different cultural traditions,  who, because they are growing  up, face conflicting emotions,  and who, let's face it, have  models in the adult world who  are more or less as confused as  themselves. It's a very difficult  business this growing up in  today's world, fraught with so  many opportunities and dangers.  If we don't want our kids  herded into factory institutions  now is the time to look at the  pros and cons very carefully.  Do we want our teachers, who  arc after all the corner stone of  education, to become impersonal purveyors of facts,  moving with the same package  from one classroom to another  and another, a revolving sea of  nameless faces? What sort of  education do we want for our  kids for the '80s and beyond? Is  it possible to make school  relevant to them and still  provide good training in basic  skills? Wc expect a lot from our  schools and we're most likely  going to need more. Besides  leaving school able to read with  enjoyment, articulate in English and with a working knowledge of several others, with the  ability to handle the increasing  complexity ofthe marketplace,  inspired by the achievements of  mankind and their heritage as  human beings, students will  need an understanding of their  environment���physical, natural, social and political���and  have learnt tolerance and  respect for its diversity.  I'm going to be told, this is all  very nice, Maryanne, idealistic  and all that, but we've got to be  pragmatic, we've got to work  with the system as it is. Granted  but systems can be changed and  they won't change from the top  down, because the political  imperatives requires the status-  quo, making life easier for  administrators and leaving the  steps for promotion clear and  defined. Trustees, however,  should be the counterweight,  their loyalty not to the system  but to their community and the  needs of the least among us.  If they too fall into the habit  of just making life easy for the  adminsitration instead of actively encouraging a continuing dialogue between parents,  students, teachers and the  community at large so that our  children's needs are seen to be  important, if they become just  rubber stamps for the system,  then who needs them?

Everyone has a respect for  the beauty and wonder of a bud  opening to full bloom. This  phenomenon that occurs in a  garden or a wild wooded area  seems to have a message of  some kind, perhaps hope,  perhaps promise, for the humans who view it. Even the  most   hard-nosed  pragmatist  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  While enjoying my annual  springtime prowl of the local  plant shops last week it again  occured to me how much I take  for granted. An amazing a-  mount of hard work, planning  and forethought goes into the  operation of these busy little  places and we expect tons of  caring, free advice along with  our puny purchases. All those  people maintain greenhouses  (which means mighty Hydro  slavering over their profits  every second month). They  catch ferries and chase up the  valley seeking out better buys  in special plants. They battle  sudden frosts and droughts and  drag all those heavy bags of  everything. Their shops are  always open Sundays and  holidays. They put up with all  our weird requests and complaints ("C'mon Charlie, you  know damn well you left them  seedlings in the back of the  truck 'till you fell on them  Saturday night...no wonder  they was frost bit... Don't put  the blame on the shop...") and  quite often on Tuesdays the  Coast News gardening person  snivels about prices and whines  about the city shops. Perhaps  the time has come to pause and  thank these dedicated people  for the lovely care they give  their plants and for the beauty  that is reflected in our gardens.  Thank you.  This week I enjoyed a  delightful visit with Olive Wells  at Quality Farms and Garden  Supplies on Pratt Road in  (iibsons. Olive is as embarrassed  about  inflation as  everyone else and she has quite  a few helpful hints. She has  bought 14-14-14 slow release  'fertilizer-soil builder' in bulk  and sells it at $1 a pound which  is a heck of a lot cheaper than  paying for the flashy green box.  She also has lovely primroses in  full, fat bloom at*9e each and  they look to be good for  another month's bloom in the  garden. Bear in mind that these  lovely flowers bloom again and  return year after year.  Last but by no means least,  Olive is the only one to have  become interested in our  grandiose plans to become the  Artichoke heartland of Canada  but she could only manage  about 6 plants and, yes, they  are expensive but have you  tried to buy Artichokes in a  grocery store recently? Contrary to what is said in the  Encyclopedia Britannica, Artichokes DO grow north of San  Francisco. They grow beautifully right here. These plants  can easily be divided and soon  you will have an Artichoke  forest for delicious eating, or  pickling or lucrative marketing. If the Damoclean sword of  depression does fall we can all  sit around here and eat Artichokes. Ask Evelyn Shellshear,  as her garden is providing for  all her family's needs. Evelyn  was kind enough to share some  of hercuttings with me last year  and 1 shared them with my  neighbours Art and Jean  Frewin (not so much out of  generosity but rather because I  don't always trust my own slip  shod methods). This lovely  sharing is one ofthe delights of  gardening. Both the plants and  the seeds are very hard to get  because 1 tried absolutely  everywhere and I couldn't find  anything. Casey's Country  Garden found me a packet of  seeds and 1 was really pleased  to discover that Olive Wells  had the plants as well as  Schizanthus seeds which are  equally elusive. Once you get  over the grunge work, gardening really is fun, so why don't  you gather your wits and enjoy  a sunny jaunt through your  nearest or your favourite  garden shop this weekend.  Also please don't neglect  Mac's Bonsai Japanese garden  up on the Highway between  Sechelt and Gibsons. BABA  has been working there since  1951 and you will find some  truly amazing shrubs up there,  both indoor and out. What a  different gift for Mother's Day,  a potted Bonsai tree would be.  Let's all get out and smell the  flowers.

We have in the  Club a number of members  who specialize in the growing  of one plant, but their gardens  have a great variety of other  plants.

Pier Blocks, etc  Box 172  Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3A0  by John Moore  The highlight of Wednesday's Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce meeting was a presentation of slides of stunning  underwater photographs Ay Jim Willoughby, world renowned  diver and Dive Master for the Beach Gardens Resort in Powell  River. The rich variety of marine life and underwater scenery, and  the fact that all of the photographs were taken in local waters,  were a revelation to all present.  "The Ocean his it all,"- Willoughby said enthusiastically  commenting on the slides, "that's where all the life is." His  photographs bear him out, to say the least, whether the macro-  lens takes you on a fantastic journey into the surreal vivid heart of  an anemone, or the submarine photographer, as startled as his  subject, captures a shy octopus in the midst of the chameleon  changes that allow it to blend invisibly into almost any  underwater terrain.  Originally from the U.S.,  Jim Willoughby is now permanently based in Powell River.  He has travelled extensively to  dive all over the world, including a grisly descent into  Truk Lagoon in the South  Pacific, where the bottom is  littered with wrecks of the  Japanese Imperial Navy, grim  souvenirs of one of the cataclysmic naval battles of World  War 11, yet he says he's going to  slay in B.C.  "You get bored, diving in the  tropics," he told his audience  Wednesday evening. "You see a  lot of pretty fish and some  pretty coral, then the next day  you go down and see the same  thing. Here you've got everything, all kinds of underwater  wrecks, cliff diving, cave  diving, incredible marine life. It  never gets boring. It's the best  divingin the world, as far as I'm  concerned."  Willoughby pointed out that  the Sunshine Coast is second  only to the Red Sea for the  excellence of its diving conditions. Not only does the  clarity ofthe water in the winter  months, when the plankton  bloom is minimal, make underwater visibilities of a 130  feet not uncommon, but in  spite of pods of killer whales  RCMP learn  diving locally  and eels that may grow to be 13  feet long, the waters of B.C. are  among the safest diving waters  in the world. There are no  forms of marine life in these  waters that are overtly dangerous to man.  Jim Willoughby has served  as guide and consultant on a  number of CBC and National  Film Board underwater film  projects and recently guided  the expedition which produced  the April cover story of National Geographic Magazine, featuring the diving spots in the  Powell River area.  Willoughby was introduced  by Jim Price, owner of Ihe  Beach Gardens Resort and  Chairman of Ihe Powell River  Economic Development Committee. Price pointed out that  as of 1977 there were two  million active divers in North  America. Figures being compiled now are expected to  reveal that in three years their  number has more than doubled. He observed that divers  like to travel to different diving  areas and that since winter is  the best time for diving in these  waters, hotel and resort owners  can .find diving groups a  welcome source of revenue in  the otherwise slow off-season.  Price, now himself a diver,  also pointed out that diving is  an ecologically benign sport,  since divers come to appreciate,  not to destroy, the environment.  The RCMP in British Columbia maintain a force of 21  divers spread throughout the  province. Each year they attend  a 12-day course in Pender  Harbour to upgrade and hone  their skills.  The divers were involved in  80 operations in 1979. These  ranged from boating and  aircraft accidents to recovering  evidence in criminal investigations. These operations are  conducted in a variety of  situations and this is what  makes the Irvine's Landing  area ideal for the course. There  are three lakes within five  minutes, the ocean offers a  wide variety of depths and  conditions and for working in  swift currents the Skookumchuck is relatively close at  hand.  The course is run by Corporal Bob Tether, the RCMP  Dive Supervisor from Vancouver. It has been in operation since April 1, 1977 and  has so far trained 30 divers.  In Lee's Bay at the mouth of  Pender Harbour, two sunken  cars are used for training. One  is in 37 feet of water and the  other is in 70 feet. Here the  divers are taught correct and  safe procedures in recovering  a sunken vehicle. A team of  divers watched from the mother ship and the tender boat,  dive to the vehicle, taking with  them a deflated lift balloon.  This is attached to the car, then  inflated from an oxygen tank.  The balloon has a lift strength  of two tons.  Once it is sufficiently inflated, it carries the vehicle to  within a few feet of the surface  and from there it can be towed  to shore. In training however,  once the wreck is brought to the  surface, it is re-sunk by releasing the oxygen through a  bleeder valve.  Because this area is ideal for  this type of training, Ottawa is  presently considering using it  to train supervisors from all  over Canada and possibly some  from the United States.  Special  Squad  Members of the Sechelt and  Gibsons RCMP Detachments  were given an update by the  Special E Squad last week.  Special E is a squad from  Vancouver specializing in the  control of motor cycle gangs.  Members of the squad travel  with bike gangs, they become  familiar with the individual  members and are specially  trained to combat any possible  troubles which could develop.

See Ratepayers' Report.  A number of local beachcombers attended the meeting  held on the evening of Monday,  March 24, in New Westminster,  at which they and their counterparts from the Fraser River  area were loudly critical of  changes to the log salvage  regulations proposed by Ministry of Forests White Paper #8.  "How would you like to be  told to take a 20% cut in your  wages?" one salvor asked Hans  Waelti and Bob Thomas, the  two representatives of the  Ministry of Forests in attendance. Despite their willingness  to handle questions from Ihe  floor, it occasionally became  Want it for a park   mMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmammmmmmmmm  Pender incensed over Daniel Point  by Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association  Publicity Committee  In Pender Harbour there is  something very embarrassing  which happens every year.  Thousands of visitors come up  on Highway 101 and are  tantalized by the gorgeous  glimpses of shoreline which flit  between the trees beside the  road. By the time they reach  Madeira Park they are desperate to get out and touch this  jaggedly beautiful landscape.  But when they pull into Pender  Harbour Chevron to ask where  they can go to do this, they  learn an amazing and terribly  disappointing thing. There is  nowhere they can go.  If they were in Gibsons they  could be directed to Gower  Point Road or the Soames  Point Park recently established  at great expense by the local  taxpayers to relax, picnic and  savour the area's atmosphere.  At Roberts Creek they could be  directed to the handsomely  appointed Roberts Creek Provincial Park, and Sechelt has a  choice of two large public  campsites, the Sechelt Campsite and the Porpoise Bay  Cimpsite. But in Pender Harbour there is nowhere they can  go.  "Then where do you go, when  you want to show a visitor the  area?" the bemused traveller  asks.  "Well, if you drive slowly  along Francis Peninsula Road,  you can catch a glimpse of the  harbour between the houses...  we used to be able to go down  to the reserve land at Canoe  Pass, but that's chained off  now. If the Irvines Landing  wharf isn't too crowded you  can dip your toes in the chuck  for a minute ihere maybe..."  But the embarrassing thing is,  even the people who live in  Pender Harbour have nowhere  they can drive either to treat the  kids to a Sunday picnic or to  show a visiting relative what  Pender Harbour's famous  drowned landscape is really  like, without trespassing on  private properly. Even though  public accesses are sai'd to exist  in theory every lew hundred  feet and there is a sleeping giant  of a marine park onan unlikely  hillside in Garden Bay, for  practical purposes the entire  shoreline, the area's prime  recreational resource, has been  withheld from the public.  This shocking example of  bad developmental planning  cannot be blamed upon the  provincial government, but as  of March 13 il can be blamed  on the Regional Board. It can't  be blamed on the government  because they have written  provisions into their subdivision guidelines requiring  developers to dedicate up to 5%'  of all new subdivisions for  public park use, a provision  which would prevent the type  of shut out situation which  exists in Pender Harbour, if it  were used as it is intended to be.  The Pender Harbour problem can be blamed on the  Regional Board because on  March 13 the Board had the  chance to obtain free under the  5% park provision a piece of  land which would have gone a  long way toward giving Pender  Harbour the park it needs���  and they turned it down.  The piece of land in question  was Daniel Point, a picturesque  finger of moss-covered granite  and windswept trees that  guards the harbour entrance. It  is possibly the harbour's most  characteristic landmark, with a  commanding view of the harbour entrance, the jewel-like  harbourfront islands, and the  wide misty vista of Malaspina  Strait. With road access,  parking area, nature trails and  picnic tables, Daniel Point  would make a park in the style  of Whitecliff or Lighthouse  Parks in West Vancouver,  something Pender Harbour  could be proud to show the  world.  The way in which this  priceless resource was lost to  the people of Pender Harbour  ���and the people of the province���is indicative of a recurrent problem affecting Pender  Harbour's role in the Regional  District���the problem of not  being able to govern its own  affairs in its own interests. The  people of Pender Harbour as  represented by the local Advisory Planning Commission  (APC) and their elected director Joe Harrison, demanded  that the Daniel Point land be  dedicated as park by the group  developing the surrounding  160 acre parcel of which it is  part. The point is roughly 8  acres, so it just works out to 5%  of the total development���the  legally required parkland.  According to Harrison, the  manner in which the Daniel  Point issue was brought before  the whole Board for decision  rather than being settled in  consultation with the director  of the area and his APC was in  itself unusual. He blames  District Planner Bill Lindsay.  "Bringing matters such as this  before the Board Planning  Committee is something new  instituted by Lindsay, apparently   to   circumvent   the  wishes of the public in Pender  Harbour," he says. The Board,  sitting as Planning Committee,  defeated Harrison's motion  that dedication of Daniel Point  be a precondition for approval  of the Lee Bay subdivision and  passed one by Gibsons Mayor  Lorraine Goddard that Daniel  Point be the site of a "lookout"  only and the remainder of the  parkland be relegated to the  subdivision drainfield. Board  Chairman Ed Nicholson had  argued that it was unreasonable to expect the developer to  forfeit the most valuable piece  of the property for public use.  Says Harrison, "That depends entirely on which side of  the fence you're on. I don't  think when the government  wrote up the regulation requiring land be set aside for  public use they had in mind  exclusively sewage disposal  fields back in the bush, barren  hillsides, swamps and property  which is otherwise undesirable  for public recreation. Yet time  and time again, this is the sort  of bargain this Board makes on  the public's behalf, taking  whichever leftover portion of  the development land the  developer doesn't want in any  case. In my mind, the'public  has every right to demand that  the park dedication be on  terrain which is Best suited to  that use. It is shocking to me to  find how easily the Board  accepted the argument that the  developer should have first dibs  and the public last."  In any case, the claim that  Daniel Point is the most  valuable portion of the development does not bear up to  close inspection. "The entire  area is a rocky outcrop and  should not be considered for  subdivison under any circumstances. We have made it clear  in the community plan that  none of the bald rock bluffs  around harbour should be used  for small lot developments and  the District Planning Department is quite aware of this."  Part of the reason for the  Board's decision, Harrison felt,  was that the developers had  been lobbying one or more  board members from areas  outside Pender Harbour to act  in their, the developers', interests and effectively to undermine the position ofthe area's  residents. "I am getting really  fed up with the amount of  lobbying by developers which  is going on and I am getting  The permanent  Vinyl Sundeck  durodek  clurodek  WOOD HEATING CENTRE  Seamless Aluminum  Gutters      &      Siding  Vinyl  Si  Im NoOt>llf>ilrr>n  even more fed up with the  amount of interference in  internal planning matters there  is by directors outside the area,  over whom residents in my area  have absolutely no control and  no recourse at the ballot box. It  is the old problem of Sechelt  and Gibsons trying to run  affairs in Pender Harbour  according to their own whim,  without reference to local  wishes." He noted that the two  directors who had the most to  say on the Daniel Point issue,  Brian Stelck of Sechelt and  Mayor Goddard of Gibsons,  "have no business whatsoever  speaking on planning matters  outside their own villages. The  villages have their own planners and do not share in the  area's planning costs. We do  not have any say in what goes  on in the villages, yet they  expect to dictate what we do."  It's the old autonomy issue,  and when Harrison asked for a  special discussion on it to  establish Board policy Sechelt's  Stelch wisecracked, "Let's  discuss it on the seventh  Sunday in May."  "They're getting pretty  cocky," Harrison comments.  "They stood off all that public  outcry over closing the Gibsons  dump and now there may be  some who think they can beat  the public back on every issue."  Besides the Daniel Point issue  he is worried that the Planning  Department and the Board  may side with the developers  over the marina-motel complex  proposed for Pope's Landing  and circumvent long-standing  local oppostition to that proposal.  "I'm afraid I am going to  have to call on residents to  become involved and make a  stand on the issue of autonomy  before we lose out altogether,"  he said. Both Daniel Point and  the Pope's Landing project will  be the subject of a Pender  Harbour and District Ratepayers General Meeting in the  Madeira Park Elementary  School library at 2 p.m.  Sunday, April 13, and the  Regional District will hold a  public hearing on the Pope's  Landing project the following  Sunday, April 20 in the Madeira Park Community Hall.  Petitions are being circulated  on both issues, copies of which  can be obtained from Joe  Harrison at 883-9958 or at the  Ratepayers meeting.  apparent that Waelti and  Thomas, Director of the Valuation 'Branch that issued the  White Paper, were less than  familiar with the regulations  governing log salvage as they  now stand, which may lend  credibility to the salvors'  contention that the author(s) of  the White Paper had little  practical working knowledge  of the business.  Over 100 log salvors and  their wives attended the meeting and many of those present  took advantage of the audience  microphone to air their grievances. Speakers returned again  and again to the subject of the  use of money from the sale of  "no mark visible" logs, logs  bearing no company timber  mark or marine log brand, a  category into which the majority of logs salvaged fall, to  subsidize debris control and  disposal.  "Why should we pay to clean  up a mess created by the big  companies?" salvors demanded  repeatedly. Salvors maintain  that the debris problem is  caused, in part by the timber  cutting policy of "close utilization", which produces a large  number of small low-grade  logs, but in the main by  insufficient log control and  security measures on the part of  the companies.  Salvors attacked the proposed changes in the Schedule  of Payments which would give  them 45% of the value of all  logs, based on a price averaged  over three months, and bitterly  dismissed the incentive "bonus"  of $1.75 per log and $2.00 per  cubic metre for logs "boomed  said. "It does look as though  the 'high-graders' in the Howe  Sound area will bear the brunt  under the new system." One  local long-time salvor chuckled  at the use of the term 'high-  grader'.  "It's typical," he said, "when I  was a boy, 'high-grader' referred to men who worked in  the mines and took out the best  ore, the high grade stuff, in  their pockets. It's like the term  beachcomber. I always thought  of a beachcomber as some kind  of remittance man lounging on  r  ^, Richard Sasaratt "���    .  roducts<^B 8M-8023 I  Gibsons  Shell Service  SPRINQ SAFETY SPECIAL  $29.95  Includes:  * Oil Filter  I   * 5 Litres of 10w30 Oil  * 12 Point "Safety Inspection"  ��� Brake System  ��� Exhaust System  ��� Wheel Bearings  ��� Front End & Suspension  ��� Shock Absorbers  ��� Tires  ��� Belts & Hoses  ��� U-Jolnts  ��� Fluid Levels  ��� Filters  ��� P.C.V.

We're business men, not a  bunch of bums and thieves, but  the big companies would rather  put their insurance claims for  losses down to theft than admit  to sloppy log-handling."  The controversy over the  Valuation Branch's White  Paper #8 will likely continue at  a meeting to be held, under the  auspices of the Ministry of  Forests, on Wednesday, April  2, at the Senior Citizens Hall in  Sechelt. The meeting will begin  at 7:00 p.m.  and sorted by the permit  holder" as "a joke". One local  salvor, talking to the Coast  News, produced figures which  indicate that the $2.00 per cubic  metre offered to salvors for  booming and sorting their own  logs may amount to less than a  third of booming and sorting  fees assessed against salvors by  Gulf Log Salvage Cooperative  four years ago.  Salvors also took advantage  of the opportunity to express  their deep distrust of Gulf Log  Salvage. The 1974 report from  the B.C. Research Council,  upon which many of the  recommendations included in  White Paper #8 are based,  states that "industry controls  Gulf Log through its majority  representation on the Board".  Many log salvors feel that  industry control of Gulf Log,  coupled with Gulf Log's virtual  monopoly control of the buying of salvaged logs, leaves the  individual permit holder at the  mercy of the big companies.  Asked by the Coast News  about Gulf Log's position as an  interested party, Gulf Log  Manager Rod Mallinson said,  "It doesn't affect us directly.  Our job is to buy and sell the  wood. We're not really an  interested party." Salvors at the  New Westminster meeting,  however, seriously questioned  Gulf Log's lack of accountability to permit holders or  government and expressed  doubts that Gulf Log would be  motivated to always get the  highest possible price for logs  from the companies.  "We expect to be getting a lot  more  low grade," Mallinson  t                  STIHL I  ��                                         IN SECHELT I  S Repairs to all makes��� 2  ��        chainsaws, outboards, g,  Rototillers, lawnmowers, ��.  water pumps, generators, ft  shredders, tractors, etc. $  Port Mellon Auxiliary  The regular meeting of the  Port Mellon Hospital Auxiliary  was held on March 12 at the  home of Margaret Hunter.

Ian MacKenzie was elected  president, Betty Gisvold vice:  president, Vega Brannon secretary-treasurer.  The Association voted unanimously to congratulate publicly through the medium ofthe  Coast News, Mayor Goddard  and her council for the fine  business-like manner in which  they are conducting the affairs  of the Village.  The main item to be discussed was the Gibsons bypass. Ian MacKenzie made a  report and said, "as politics is  considered Ihe art of the  possible we must consider only  that on which we are sure  everyone agrees". The route  proposed up Langdale Creek as  far as the Chamberlain Road  extension is agreed to by  everyone. Therefore we asked  only this of the Highways  Department: 1) Complete the  by-pass up Langdale Creek to  Chamberlain Road extension  find North Road. 2) A right  turn access from North Road to  Reed Road. 3) Using Reed and  Henry Roads another right  turn access from Henry Road  to Highway 101. 4) Left turn  lane from Highway 101 to  Henry road. 5) Extend Sunnycrest Road to Reed Road.  The 1972 Gibsons by-pass  route is of course preferable but  there are many selfish people  blocking it. In any case the 1972  alternate route or the power  line highway route could be  continued at anytime, 10,20 or  50 years from now. In the  meanwhile we will have taken  the heavy truck and car traffic  away from Hopkins, Granthams and Gibsons giving the  traffic an easy 8% clime from  the Langdale ferry dock.

Hot cross Buns $1.10  ,**;  It's Easter time again and one of the traditional foods  that one makes is the Hot Cross Bun. Yeast mixtures  are always fun to make and they are something in  which the whole family can get involved. Ten minutes  of kneading can be quite an effort. Why not harness  the energy of the young and fit to serve a useful  purpose.  Hot Cross Buns (2 dozen buns)_  2 tab/espoons yeast  2 tablespoons sugar  1/2 cup luke warm milk  1 cup milk  3 1/24 1/2 cups flour  1/2 teaspoon salt  1 teaspoon ground allspice S3l ij  1/2 teaspoon ground nutmecj .  1 teaspoon cinnamon  2 eqqs  4 fab/espoons margarine  2/3 cup raisins  1/4 cup cut lemon peel  1 egg plus 1 tablespoon milk ,  1. Put the lukewarm milk in a small bowl and sprinkle  the yeast and sugar on top. Stir the mixture after a  couple of minutes so lhat the yeast dissolves fully.  Cover the bowl and put in a warm place for 10  minutes till  2. Sift 3 1/2 cups o( (lour, the salt and spices into a  mixing bowl. Pour in the cup of milk, the yeast  mixture and the egys and beat with a wooden spoon  until all the flour is absorbed.  3. Beat in 3 tablespoons of margarine. Cut it up into  small pieces first.  4. Gradually beat in up to one cup of flour until the  mixture forms a ball that leaves the sides of the  bowl. You may not have to use all the flour.  5. Flour your work surface and put the dough on it.  Knead the dough by pummelling it like mad for 10  minutes. This is where your family can help.  6. Grease your mixing bowl lightly and plunk the  dough in it. Cover with a towel, put it in a warm  place ior an hour and go hunt Easter eggs.  7. Use the remaining tablespoon of margarine to  grease a couple of large baking sheets.  8. Get rid of your aggressions by punching your  dough down firmly a couple of times. Put it on a  lightly floured work surface and knead in the fruit  and peel a little at a time.  9. Put one handful of the dough aside. And now to  make the buns. Grab a piece of dough and make a  ball about an inch and a half in diameter. Place each  ball about 2 inches apart on the baking trays. Cover  them and put in a warm place for about 20 minutes  till they're double their size.  10.Heat the oven to 450 degrees.  11.Place a cross in the top of each bun. Now...remember that dough you set aside? Pull little pieces  off it and roll it out between your palms into little  worm shapes���your children will love doing this.  Make little crosses on top of each bun.  12.Brush the buns with a glaze of beaten eggs and milk  and bake for 15 minutes.

"Hold it there,...those turnips are not 73C  lb.!" "No, lady, I agree. I punched in code #73  which is for turnips. The machines will  remember better than I what the price is. They  will swiftly compute and print the weight, the  price and extension on your tape."  Most people say they really like the new  scale and register system but some are  apprehensive. They don't quite understand it.  We want to help. Speak to us of any  explanations you require.  The tape you get is clear and more check-  proof than any we've ever had. The scales  weigh, record and compute within 1/100 of a  pound. This was virtually impossible by sight  on the old type scales. They are much  speedier, too. And. forthose items price-coded  into the machine there is good price-  memory���better than the human mind. If there  are disadvantages, they are those related to  operator training and concentration. If the  operator does not proceed correctly, "override" buzzers make noises to tell one of the  errors of one's ways.  Here then is our present list of what we call  PLUs (Price Look Up items).

Unfortunately it was not enough to win. The Bruins came back and tied the game by scoring two goals in the  last two minutes. The Bruins then went on to win 6 to 5 in overtime, tying the best out of three tournament for  the league championship with a game a piece.  Strikes and spares  &m\  by Bud Mulcaster  The Golden Age Swingers  team, Cathy Martin, Mary  Lambert, Lil Perry, Jack  James, Art Smith and Art  Teasdale took in the second  step of the G.A. 5 Pin Championship Tournament held at  Varsity Lanes last Sunday.  They were in third place after  2 games, only 3 pins out from  second place, but lost ground in  the third game and wound up in  fifth spot. The team from  Garibaldi Lanes in Squamish  were the winners and will go to  Salmon Arm to compete in the  Provincial Zone. It's a good  tournament and if you think  the Golden Agers can't bowl up  a storm, think again! They put  some of 'us' to shame.  Only three 300 games rolled  last week, one by Esther Carey  in the Phuntastique League, a  316 and two by Jeff Mulcaster,  a 309 in the Classic and a 327 in  the Legion League.

Once again  Gleneagles gained a victory. At  Horseshoe Bay the Gleneagles  Club won the match with a  score of 23 points to 13. They  repeated their winning ways by  defeating Sunshine Coast on  their home course 20/2 to 15'/!.  The low gross teams were John  Senick and Chris Thorson from  Gleneagles and Brian Leckie  and Bill Peterson from Sunshine Coast. Low net was Don  Smith and Brian Bannon, with  Roy Taylor and Dick Gaines  winning for their home club.  Individual winners were Gleneagles Bob Curric - low gross  and Norm Whittaker - low net.  Beautiful sunny and warm  weather along with a great  lunch, completed a successful  day.  A word of thanks to our lady  members who acted as hostesses during the winter months.  Now that spring has arrived,  Isobel and Emma are back and  with the different ideas and  experience, provided by our  new manager and his wife, we  can expect to enjoy a good  season of golf.  Don't forget to pick up your  membership card at the clubhouse.  A good turnout is expected  for the Ladies Opening Day on  April 1 and golf and luncheon  on April 8.  A most important aspect of  our  club's  success  is  the  securing of new members, who  are necessary to help maintain  and improve this years budget  and program. An excellent P.R.  outlet for the many wholesale  and retail companies in our  area, is a commercial membership. Details can be explained from the membership  director or at the club from Art  Park, the club manager.  The annual Reno Nite is  scheduled for April 12. Sign up  at the clubhouse for an enjoyable evening.  Environment  More  than  70 species  of  mammals  live  in  or near  Canada's forests.

As to the time before, we  can only speculate...and dream  on a summer's day...  They sprawl, like the arms of  a starfish, Jervis Inlet, Hotham  Sound, Agamemnon Channel  and Sechelt Inlet and there,  right at the junction of this  stream of waterways, lies  Egmont, also sprawled, sparsely populated, thinly spread  along two shorelines with  enclaves distributed on other  shores, but part of the whole in  that they are dependent upon  Egmont for what amenities of  civilization it affords. That, at  least, is the way it was in the  beginning.  In the beginning, there were  no roads, no power lines, no  telephones and few radios. Into  this wilderness came a slow  trickle of humanity, some to  stay only short times, others to  make it their home and the  home of their children and their  children's children. Among the  first of the families to arrive  were Mr. and Mrs. John Wray,  from England, and their children.  John Wray, a school teacher  by profession, had come to  Canada to work on the construction of the CPR. When  that task was completed, he,  like most others of his day,  wanted land. He tried in  Gibson's Landing, in Pender  Harbour and finally took up a  very brief residence in Hidden  Bay on Nelson Island. It was  too lonely, too isolated, and he  took his family to Quarry Bay  for a time before he preempted land at a place opposite  where Sakinaw Creek runs into  Agamemnon Channel. In 1903,  after hearing that a fish cold  storage plant was to be built at  the Skookumchuck, he took his  family to Egmont.  Having already pre-empted  land on Nelson Island, he  couldn't take more in Egmont.  His eldest son, Jack, could  however, and at the age of 18,  took over 160 acres on the  south shore of Sechelt Inlet.  Jack, his father and brothers  fished and handlogged all  around the area and sold the  timber of the Egmont preemption to Phil Hiltz, a logger  from St. Vincent Bay. Hiltz  with  his 'incredibly modern  machine', a steam donkey, and  the help of Bob Heard,another  pre-emptor from St. Vincent  Bay, cleared Wray's land of  first growth timber in very  short order.  When, in 1906, the Wray  family could see that the fish  plant was unlikely to materialize, they went back to their  homestead on Nelson Island,  leaving Egmont to the Indians  on the reserve, the man who ran  by John Van Arsdell  Our small, gravelly fishing  town of Egmont had an exciting week last week highlighted  by a boat fire and a magazine  article. ,  As Greg and John and  myself were setting up the  Community Hall for the movie  Stan moseyed in at about six  and a half knots and told us  Kerry Vaughn's log salvage  boat, which is also his home,  was afire. Sure enough, upon  hightailing it down to Bathgate's Fuel Dock we witnessed  the store and post office, and a  couple of brothers named  George and Percy Garret, who  were caretakers of a large land  parcel belonging to Captain  Archibald, who sailed one of  the Empress liners across the  Pacific. There were few others  beyond itinerants who fished  and logged and then moved on,  but the potential was there, and  while the Wrays may have been  the first family to bring their  children to this quiet corner of  the coast, they were not the last.  In the same year as the  Wrays left, two men arrived,  two men whose names were to  live on as they, and their yet-to-  be-born descendants peopled  the bays and bights of Eg-  mont's shores.  ' These men were Joe Silvey  and George Vaughan.  the continuing story of old gas  boat explosion movie. Kerry  has had bad luck with fires and  it is a pity.

See you on April 15!!!  by Rev. George W. Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  Somehow, if the church is to  be viable and powerful in the  lives of today's believers, each  one of us has to capture the full  force of the meaning of the  Easter miracle in our lives, so  dramatically that it will never  leave us again, for as long as we  continue in this lifetime.  To the early church, especially to those who had  actually participated in the  miracle at Jerusalem, and who  had witnessed the short, 40-day  ministry of the living and  resurrected Christ, it was not  such a difficult project.  After all, this was an age  when people believed in miracles, and in God's power to  effect miracles right here in the  world which he created, in  whatever fashion he chose, and  in whatever time and place he  chose. Therefore, the resurrection of our Lord to lead the  infant church into the new age,  was a powerful event which  those early believers could  espouse joyously and hold aloft  gratefully as the event which  truly launched them into being  as Christians!  There was little wonder,  then, that the Easter miracle  became the high point in the  Christian church's year, and its  whole calendar of worship  focussed around this miraculous event which had laid low  the doubters and cynics and  had called the church into  being as a living entity of faith.  The Easter miracle became  such a focal point that it was  necessary to lead up to it with  minor celebrations, to call  upon the church's members for  special acts of recognition such  as fasting, and to lead into the  final Holy Week celebrations  with such pomp and circumstance that the final act of  celebrating the Easter miracle  could only be a trememdous  climax.  For many years the church  carried on this tradition in  good faith and with integrity  until the ingenuity and rest-'  lessness of man began to  burden this most wonderful of  all celebrations of the church  year with excess baggage, and  Easter became an event that  was highly secular, even pagan,  in its celebration, with Mardi  Gras, Easter-egg rolls, Easter  Sunday fashion parades, and  all manner of fooiish revelry in  the name ofthe Easter miracle.  The problem for the church  became���how to keep the  sanctity and the joy of the  celebration in tension?  This was a problem that was  particularly acute in the church  life of the mainline Protestant  churches which function on a  democratic pattern, and try to  keep the needs and wishes of  the people, and their cultural  milieu, closely in mind when  planning the church's calendar  year celebrations.  It was a particularly knotty  problem for one newly-ordained minister recently, as he  approached his first Easter in  the service of his new pastoral  charge, and tried to decide how  he would frame the responses  to this Easter miracle, in some  fashion which would fuse new  meaning and understanding  into the lives of his parishioners, and truly bring the  2,000-year-old miracle into its  context as an exciting and  meaningful story for today, one  that would live in the lives of  the parishioners every day of  the year!  As he started thinking about  the matter, some three or four  months in advance ofthe event,  he received a piece of disturbing news���his doctor told  him he must go into hospital  for the first piece of major  surgery he had ever had in his  life���one of those drastic  surgery procedures which can  be accompanied by a shortened  life-span.  All thoughts of the Easter  celebration were pushed to one  side, as the calendar showed it  was highly unlikely the minister would be back in the  pulpit by Easter, let alone being  fit enough to plan a major  celebration.  The minister, however, had  the utmost faith that his Lord,  who had called him into his  service in the maturity of his  life, was not going to strike him  down prematurely, before he  had even hit full stride in his  ministry.  So he went into the hospital  and underwent all the procedures with the message of Paul  on the ministry in his heart:  "...always carrying in the body  the death of Jesus, so that the  life of Jesus may also be  manifested in our bodies. For  while we live we are always  being given up to death for  Jesus' sake, so that the life of  Jesus may be manifested in our  mortal flesh." (II Cor. 4:10,11.)  And, as the strange, sometimes painful, often humbling  events of the hospital stay went  on, he found himself on an  entirely new and exciting plane,  enjoying every minute of the  hospital stay, every evidence of  the love and affection of his  parishioners, every new indication that he was, in fact, able  to endure the pain and discomfort happily and to look  forward to being able to bring  the message of the Easter  miracle to his people.  Even more importantly, he  learned from his Easter message of the apostle Paul when  and how to celebrate Easter���  every day and without ceasing!  He learned that the message  of Easter is that we are all in the  death of Christ, in whatever  form it may come to us, in  order that we may also share in  his resurrection���a resurrection to eternal life!  Even more important to his  ministry, he realized he would  be grateful if he were to be able  to be back in the pulpit to  celebrate with his people two or  three weeks after Easter, and  every day in the year after that.  But he who shaped the first  Easter miracle took a hand in  this event, too, God willing,  that minister will be in his  pulpit, wearing a few scars and  aches, but with a clean bill of  health, on this very next Easter  morning!  And he will never again  wonder how to celebrate Easter!  T0R0  Tight places, open spaces'  Six Toro mowers with the bag in the back,  out of the way.

A light drizzle  of rain was falling and daylight  was just breaking although,  due to the overcast conditions,  the vehicle that had stopped  still had it's headlights on. For  a fleeting instant I thought I  was back in the cinema and  Tom Mix and the Indians were  still at it and, to judge from the  shape I was in, that I was one of  the victims of the violent  struggles that had transpired  on the screen the previous  afternoon. However I was soon  brought back to reality by a  voice saying, "Are you all  right?" and someone bending  over me. My good Samaritan  turned out to be the driver of an  oil!delivery truck, the squeal  was due to the sudden application of brakes and the bang the  backfire of the exhaust.  I was far from being all right,  as a matter of fact I had never  felt so ghastly in my life but at  least I was still alive and in one  piece. My teeth were chattering  and, even when I clenched  them, a dark brown froth was  oozing out of my mouth and  had spread over the front of my  shirt. It was as if I had  swallowed a cake of shaving  soap but it would have had to  have been liberally mixed with  tincture of iodine or nicotine to  account for the sepia colour.  When I managed to raise an  arm my hand went to the side of  my throbbing head to discover  a large lump about the size of a  goose egg dn my forehead just  above the right temple. My feet  were freezing and soon I  discovered the reason, I was  bereft of footwear and my  socks were soaking wet. I must  say' that whoever had worked  me over had done a most  thorough job of it. I had been  "taken to the cleaners" in a  most methodical manner. Not  only had they robbed me of  whatever cash I had had on my  person but the gold watch that  had been a graduation gift from  rny p irents was gone, likewise  rny f ir-lined boots and overcoat and, for good measure,  they had even taken my sports  coat! j  The truck driver, after remarking how close he had  come to running over my legs  before he had noticed me lying  there, helped me to my feet and  ertquited where I had come  from!,and, what was more  important, where did I want to  go. He had left Toronto while it  was still dark and was heading  for Hamilton, about IS miles  away, so gratefully I clambered  into the truck. On the way in,  although my head was aching  unmercifully, I tried to reconstruct what had happened  to me. That I had been given  some kind of "Mickey Finn"  was only too evident but  probably the chloral hydrate  hadn't worked fast enough to  suit my hosts back at the dance  hall so Lucille had been  instructed to lead me through  that particular door where  someonei either armed with a  blackjack or a sock full of sand,  had administered the coup de  grace which accounted for the  "goose egg".  All this of course was  conjecture on my part of the  events leading up to my present  condition, but the truck driver  (and what a hell of a nice guy he  was) told me that due to the  Prohibition laws in the U.S.A.  the heat was really on and  many of the gangsters and  other unsavory characters,  engaged in the illicit dealings in  booze, had fled their side ofthe  border and were now establishing themselves in Canada to  excape possibly not only the  Federal^gents who were after  them, but their own members  of the Mafia whom they had in  all probability double-crossed.  He mentioned Buffalo and  Detroit Is their former bases of  operation although, as he said,  they  w< uld substantiate the  i fact' tht:, as far as I could  rerriemb r, many of the com-  panjy at the roadhouse were  dark conaplexioned or coloured  I people, j  Well, we arrived in the city of  I Hamilton and the driver even  went out of his way to drop me  off a couple of blocks from  where I had a room. He even  insisted I take a couple of  dollars to, as he put it, "tide me  over" till I got myself straightened around and then he was  on his way. I was deeply  impressed by his kindness and  understanding and it helped me  more than a little to realize that  there were good people still left  in the world along with the  many crooks and no good  s.o.b.'s!  I imagine it was about 6:30-  7:00 a.m. when 1 arrived at the  rooming house and suddenly  became aware of the fact that I  had no key to let myself in, it  too had departed along with  the rest of my belongings. I had  to ring the bell several times  before poor old Mrs. Donnelly  answered it, clad in a dressing  gown and with her hair still in  curlers. When she peered  through the curtained door I  could see the look of incredulous horror on her face as she  perceived and recognized me  and I don't blame her as I must  have presented a sorry sight  indeed. Coatless, hatless and in  my stockinged feet and what  had once been a white shirt now  all stained brown in front, it is a  wonder she even let me in! I can  imagine the thoughts she must  have had about the respectability and moral character of  her two new lodgers. First Jim  Ryan brought back late in the  afternoon in a semi-conscious  condition, possibly suffering  from a stroke, and now here the  other member of the duo  without even a pair of shoes on  and having all the appearance  of having gone through a  violent tornado or an earthquake! It must have taken all  her forebearance and Christian  charity to have prevented her  from ordering us out of her  house but, gentle kind lady  that she was, she opened the  door and helped me up the  stairs meanwhile clucking away  to herself like a solicitous hen  over an errant chick.  Assuring her I would be all  right and all I needed was some  rest, I opened the.door to my  room and found that, although  Jim's bed had been slept in, he  was not in it. This did not  surprise me as if he had  awakened feeling as I had, he  must have needed a drink in the  worst way and had gone out  hunting one. All I could think  of at the time was that I  sincerely hoped he hadn't taken  a taxi and gone looking for  wine, women and song, the way  I had!

Coast News, April 1,1980  Carl's corner  Steampot to skyhook  by Carl Chrismas  For the past couple of  months, while on our way up  Salmon Inlet each weekend to  Weldwood's Clowhom Falls  camp, Lucy and I have stopped  to worship at the shrine of  aviation's most recent mechanical contribution to the  logging industry in B.C. Near  Black Bear Bluff, Whonnock  Lumber are operating a Boeing  'Vertol 107' contra-rotating,  dual rotor helicopter.  Piloted by Captain Art  Plunkett of Madeira Park, one  of two command pilots of the  huge craft, they are making  roughly, a round trip every two  to four minutes, depending on  the distance, elevation and  carry approximately twocunits  per turn. Their lifting capacity  is up to six tons but they try to  operate at 11,500 pounds per  lift.  They work an average often  hours a day, for ten straight  days, then take five days off.  The operation goes on for  seven days a week, with about  one third of their crew rotating  their days of rest. About SO  men are employed, all told.  Production figures vary, but  for a ball park estimate I was  told their very best day was two  million pounds of wood. This  should convert to roughly 180  to 200 thousand board feet.  What the average would be I  was not able to ascertain at this  time, but it would have to be  substantial to support an  operating cost of $2,000 per  hour for the Vertol. There will  be others more knowledgeable  than I reporting on the statistics of helicopter logging. My  main interest was in comparing  the old steampot days of  highlead logging to the present  trend to rotary wing. I never  cease to be enthralled by what I  see, and I can't help thinking  back to the days when I shared  a bunkhouse room with Joe  Thompson, woods boss for  Olympic Logging Co. at Big  Qualicum River.  I thought about Joe as we  continued up the Inlet that  afternoon, and that evening,  after dinner, I had the opportunity to sit back in a guest  house lounge and gaze out the  picture window and down the  iong and twisting waterway, all  the way back to Big Qualicum  River and Old Joe.  I remembered the evening we  had finished supper and were  heading for the bunkhouse,  picking the tender morsels of T  bone from between the ivory  grinders. Joe stretched himself  full length on the iron cot,  settled himself comfortably  with hands behind head, and  began to talk.  "You know, I had a vision  today." He shifted his toothpick and thought for a moment. "I was sitting on a big  rock outcrop on that ridge  above Home Lake and I could  see a load of logs being dumped  away down at the river mouth."  Another dig at an offending  sliver of meat, then a loud  'pheutt' as he sent it sailing  across the room. "And I  thought to myself...there had to  be a better way!"  I kept quiet and waited. Joe  was tired, he had put in a tough  diiy looking for a road up that  rocky ridge he was sitting on,  probing the ground with his  three foot length of thin, cold  roll steel, feeling for rock that  meant drilling, blasting and  grinding hours of bulldozer  work. That piece of cold roll in  Joe's hand was like the trained  fingers of a skilled surgeon  probing for lumps on a mammary gland.  That pensive look and worried frown meant he had found  lots of it. Rock, that is! And he  would   do   almost  anything  rather than fight with rock.  "And in that vision I saw you  and that log hauling partner of  yours, Art Langley, 'yo-yoing'  forth and back between the  woods and the water with two  of the biggest dang egg beater  affairs you ever hope to see!"  He had dug out his old  curved stem briar and was  getting it ready for stoking up.'  When he had it properly  tamped, a big red eye in the  bowl and a final puff of grey  smoke clouding the air, he  continued.  "Now, I don't know a danged  thing about flyin', but I read a  yarn the other day about a guy  named Igor Sikorsky who is  working on an invention called  a helicopter. It will have a big  rotor like an egg beater and will  lift itself straight up in the air  without even a runnin' start!"  He sucked and tamped some  more on that burley briar,  exhaled a cloud of smoke that  seemed to satisfy him, then  went on. "At the start, I don't  reckon he could lift much more  than a fence post out of the  woods, but he says in time he  would lift tons! I don't suppose  I will see them in my time, but if  I do, then I will sit under that  big fir tree on the river bank  and watch the likes of you and  Art droppin' logs in the bullpen  like a pair of kids skippin'  stones on a mill pond!"  The idea seemed to please  him so much that he let out a  lound snort, rolled on his side  and glowered at me, "Then you  two cowboys won't have the  chance to run me off the dang  plank road on a blind corner  while you're racin' each other  for that bonus load!"  Poor Old Joe! He just  dreaded driving that seven  miles of planks on two 24 inch  wheel tracks across that swampy Home Lake country. And  he was right about Art and I.  We had been hauling logs  together for several years and  had a reputation of being two  of the best gear jammers  around that part of Vancouver  Island.  Seven miles of snaky planks,  built up on shaky trestles over  bog and swamp was a real  challenge that we young hellions could get our teeth into.  And to top it off and give us an  excuse to herd them gas  burners up and down that  wooden pike like a pair of mad  women with wrinkles in their  girdles was the $25 bonus that  Bert Welch paid to the high side  and high truck at the end of  each month. And a bonus like  that in them depression days  was like a snort to an alchy on a  Sunday mornin' comin' down!  So you could sec it was no  safe place to be when wc got  them five ton Fords in the  company notch and were o-  our way to the beach. Joe used  to sit and wait at the start of the  planks until he knew where  'that pair of maniacs' were  before starting in. But if wc  happened to meet, he'd slam  that little pickup into reverse,  stand on the throttle, then back  up while staring straight ahead.  His eyes would be as round as a  spook hunter meeting up with a  ghost in a graveyard on a black  and stormy night! Nine times  out of ten, he'd drop off the  planks, then jump out of his  stalled truck and run like hell!  It's a wonder he didn't fire us  many times, but good log  haulers were hard to find even  in them days.  So we'd help him back on the  planks, promise to keep our  mouths shut and go on about  our business. And that was the  reason for the admonition and  the steely glare from under  beetled brows!  Once he got that off his chest  he seemed to feel better, but  dreaming about helicopter  logging didn't help to solve  rock problems. He was silent in  thought for awhile, then sighed  and said, "Oh, well...she'll still  be there tomorrow. Guess I'll  do a little shootin'!" Then like a  lot of other mountain men,  he'd pick up his latest copy of  Zane Grey and 'Riders of the  Purple Sage', to dream of  logging in country where there  was not a mountain nor a rock  as far as the eye could see. Only  problem was vffiere"were no  trees!  To be continued.  Elphie Report  A staff vs Student Council  volleyball game was held  Monday, March 24. It was not  a serious game as the teachers  won three games to nothing.  The teachers had the advantage  of experience and the students  had the energy. Some of the  outstanding players for the  teachers were Mr. Barry, Mr.  Geisbricht, Mr. Gray and Mr.  Douglas. Outstanding players  for the students were Clint  Mahlman, Brian Lymer and  Mamie Jamieson. The game  was enjoyed by all the players  and the crowd.  On Wednesday the Senior  Girls Soccer Team played their  first game of the season. They  travelled to Port Coquitlam  and played Centennial. An  excellent show was put on by  Elphie. The girls didn't win  their game, but coach Graham  Heap was very pleased with  them. Cindy Maclean scored  the goal, and showed great  expertise in her skills. An  astonishing performance was  put out by Karen Achterberg  the goalie who saved almost 20  shots. Good work, team!  A Driver's Education course  has started. It consists of 15  students taking a 25 hour  course with 8 hours behind the  wheel. The car will be donated  by Suncoast Chrysler.  When we return from our  spring vacation on April 8, the  following weeks will be mid  term exams. Report cards will  be issued on April 22. During  the Spring Break, while we are  still away there will be an "April  Fools Day Run" which will be  from Gibsons to Sechelt.  Grade 10 students have been  involved in choosing their  courses for next year. The  C.R.12 courses went sking on  Wednesday, March 26, 1980.  So Spring Break is here. We  hope the weather stays nice for  everyone. We come back on the  8th of April. Mid terms start on  April 14. I hope the Easter  Bunny is good to you all.

Oily bears  Have you been following the  tests that are being carried out  on the three (correction, one,  the other two have died) polar  bears in Manitoba. The study is  to find out what effect an  Arctic oil spill would have on  them. Well, they found out. It  kills them.  Experiments  like  this are  barbaric, but I guess they are  useful. For example, by these  tests, they have discovered that  the bears lick off the oil and  ingest it, rather than roll in the  snow and clean themselves.  As I say, it is like the testing  of chemicals, it has to be done  so that provisions and safeguards can be implemented.  What bothers me is that it takes  an outsider, in this case Paul  Watson from the Fund for  Animals to make this public. I  was under the impression that  the polar bear was a protected  species. Now it appears that it is  only protected from the public,  not the government or those  under its umbrella.  Here are a couple of interesting quotes from two people  involved. Dr. Merlin Shoe-  smith, the chief of biological  services for the Department of  Natural Resources in Manitoba, mentioned that the death  of the first bear "caught us by  surprise. We weren't sure what  was wrong with the bear." This  appears to be a touch unobservant of him,, considering  that the animal had been  dipped in oil.  Dr. Frank Juck, the provincial veterinary pathologist said  that, "At no time during the  experiment did the bears  appear to be suffering from  pain. We hoped that the bears  would be nourished back to  health." Then he goes on to say  that the animals had refused to  eat for a month before they  died.  Here I've been under the  Capilano College  Coast News, April 1,1980  The Board of Capilano  College held a meeting at  Elphinstone last Tuesday, a  symbolic gesture of welcome to  the Sunshine Coast, now  officially a region served by the  College and soon to have an  embryo campus here.  The College Board comprises members appointed by  the Minister of Education,  representatives of the four  School Boards, West and  North Vancouver, Howe  Sound and Sechelt, and representatives of the Faculty,  Teachers Association and  Student Council,' not all of  whom are voting members. Dr.  Eric Paetkau has recently been  appointed to the Board and  School District Trustee Brian  Hodgins of Bowcn Island, who  formerly held a watching brief,  is now a lull member.  The meeting was like other  School Board meetings, mostly  a matter of approval for  decisions made in committee,  more or less routine business  except for a discussion on  changes in the fee structure.  The recommendation of the  impression that one had to be  reasonably intelligent to have  the word 'Doctor' before your  name. Ach well, there they go  and burst another of my  bubbles.  If you want to contact me,  my numbers are, 886-2622/  886-7817 and 886-9151, ta.  finance committee to discontinue the policy of user-pay, an  extra lab fee charged to specific  courses over and above tuition  fees, and to implement instead  a new amalgamated fee, was  turned down after considerable  discussion. I was impressed  with the student representatives who made their points  clearly and pleased to hear Mr.  Ian Edgar express the opinion  that because other colleges had  amalgamated their fee structure wasn't a good enough  reason for Capilano to do  likewise; "The other colleges'  could be wrong".  The Board expressed warm  appreciation and thanks to Mr.  Van Weston of Sechelt who is  building the embryo campus,  three classrooms, office, lounge  and resource area to be leased  to the College for three years.  The Sechelt Indian Band has  generously offered to lease land  to the College on the site ofthe  former residential school, a  prospect which should hold  exciting possibilities should the  College decide to expand  Capilano College seems to be  well served by its student body,  four representatives came over  for the meeting as well as two  reporters from the student  paper the Capilano Courier,  and the students lost no time  when the meeting ended in  coming over to introduce  themselves to the representatives of the local press.  Working at the Achievement Centre in Gibsons, Mark Lemky, Andrew Meketich and  Odette Turynek insert seeds into the Flowers ol Hope envelopes, soon to be mailed.  The Achievement Centre asks that you give generously.  Easter pet warning  The British Columbia Veterinary Medical Association has  issued a pre-Eastcr warning to  well meaning people who may  consider giving live animals as  Easter gifts.  The time of year is approaching when the local pet shop  windows will be filled with cute  little bunny rabbits and fluffy  little yellow chicks. At first  these animals would appear to  be ideal Easter gifts, however,  there are several factors to  consider.  Firstly, are these animals  healthy to begin with? In many  cases these animals are weaned  early in order to accommodate  the Easter market. This early  weaning is a stress factor and as  a result, these animals arc very  susceptible to any sort of  disease.  Secondly, if these animals  are healthy, do you have the  proper facilities to be able to  maintain their good health?  Rabbits and chickens require  very special types of accommodation which most people do  not normally have. Young  chicks in particular, require a  very controlled environment in  order to maintain their good  health.  Thirdly, and most importantly, do you really want a  rabbit or a chicken as a, pet,  because in several months that  is exactly what you will have.  In conclusion, these animals  usually do not make ideal pets  and therefore some other type  of gift lor Easter would probably be more appropriate and  more appreciated.  :(--** * * * ���  NDP  rf)0*sr%  * -Jf. * * -.��: * :): t- # :): * '  j~V   Coast Business Directory J~^  I ACCOMODATION I  BELLA BEACH MOTEL  ON THE BEACH AT DAVIS BAY  ,,���.��� ._���, ���,.,.���.���������,���    1 & 2 bdrm. housekeeping units  UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP     ^^.^i, c   ��� ��� D ���  Hatkonens, Sechelt, B.C.  ^R.R.fTT (Davis Bay) 885-8561 VON 3A0  I APPLIANCES I  SUNCOAST TRUSS LTD. gZates  (Gibsons) 886-7318  Located next to Windsor Plywood P.O.

Quigley, who was representing  the branch-employees in negotiations was laid off due to  shortage of work and her  replacement as union negotiator, the bank's senior teller  Carol Dulyk, was laid off on  the same excuse. Both positions were subsequently filled  by new employees. The actions  led to prolonged demonstrations in front of the bank by  Gibsons residents, customer  boycotts, and a 500-name  petition asking for reinstatement of both tellers but the  bank refused to budge.  Similar tactics were being  carried out at the other union  banks, while non-union banks  urged their employees to wait-  and-see how the union workers  fared before joining. At the  same time bank management  stonewalled union negotiators,  !?���  *4,495.00  1977 Ford Cougar  Auto., P.S./P.B.

Meanwhile  the union was running up debts  and then had to lay off its two  paid staff. The volunteer  executive was run ragged.  Unbelievably, the CLRB found  against the union at the  Gibsons Bank of Commerce,  and the door seemed to be open  for management to harass and  fire union activists. Memberships began to nosedive.  Technically speaking, there  were two choices open to the  union at this point: strike or  withdraw from negotiations.  But since the union was broke,  statllcss and without substantial support from the rest ofthe  labour movement there really  was only one choice. On July  30, 1978 the brave little union  threw in the towel: "Some  bankworkcrs were against the  decision, but very few. Mostly  they were upset, furious,  depressed, and demoralized.  Wc all cried for days."  In the last analysis SORWUC really was too small and  naive and the banks really were  loo rich and powerful, but in  certain ways the bankworkcrs  moving and dramatic effort  was an astonishing success. For  one thing it was an extremely  effective protest, bringing  bankworkcrs dissatisfaction to  the attention of both the public  and the bank management in a  most emphatic way. Although  many improvements offered by  the banks during the .irgan-  i/ing campaign vanished as  soon as the clanger was past, the  average 1179 wage for tellers in  Vancouver was $88?, up from  $63(1 in 1977. All banks introduced dental plans and abolished the odious practice of  deducting from tellers wages  when they had cash shortages.  The Commerce has instituted  regular coffee breaks and pays  overtime on an hourly basis.  Still there is no seniority, no  grievance procedure and bank  wages in B.C. are far below the  provincial average of  SI,381.00.  Most important among  SORWUC's achievements was  in proving that there is a need  for unions in banks, and  proving that banks can indeed  be organized. The CLRB ruling  they won on June 14, 1977 put  in place the legal platform upon  which a major new Canadian  union can now be built, either  by revitalized SORWUC or  some other union willing to  undertake the challenge. :���  20. Coast News, April 1,1980  First ever locally  Computer forum upcoming  hv John Farrer  April 13 will be something of  a historic day for the Sunshine  Coast; we will be having our  first computer forum. The  computers wc will be talking  about arc not the gleaming  electronic monsters you see al  universities and large banks,  hut the amazing small machines which have become  available over the last few  years. These so called Microcomputers arc "Micro" in size  but certainly not micro in  capability. In fact a system wilh  must ol the power ol an I.B.M.  of III years ago can now be  bought for around $1,000 and  can sit on a coffee table with  plenty of room to spare.  Starting prices for a very basic  computer start at around $130,  so must people can afford one.  The indications arc that they  will come to be increasingly  important in our everyday lives  ovei ihe next few years so that a  basic knowledge of computers  will soon be as necessary as  knowing how lo use the  telephone.  T.V, games and pocket  calculators are the most visible  use of microcomputer technology, and wc all know howtney  have changed in both price and  sophistication over the few  years since they first appeared.  Computers arc going the same  way. but faster. To take an  example; the machine on which  I am typing this article puts the  text onto a screen like the one  on your television set. If I need  to change a word or a line lean  just type them in, and the  computer inserts them in the  right place adjusting the posi  tion of the other words or lines  lo accommodate the new ones,  the computer can "remember"  up to 30,000 characters in its  electronic memory, and more  can be stored on magnetic tape.  When I have finished typing  and editing it prints text at a  rate of about one line a second.  This machine also plays chess  at a very high level, plays other  complex games, plays music  and can run a range of business  and scientific programmes. Yet  in spite of this amazing versatility, the central "brain" of the  computer is about the size of an  average little fingernail, contains around 60,000 transistors,  processes 600,000 instructions  per second and cost $10.  Computer talk has been  finding its way into everyday  language for some time now  and we are all familiar with  such expressions as "feedback",  "input" and "real time". The  problem is that in finding their  way into popular use many of  these words have drifted away  from their original meaning.  The fact is that as anyone who"  has had much to do with  computers knows computers  are very particular about what  is fed to them, a mere substitution of a period for a comma  can destroy a whole programme under some circumstances. Consequently computer talk employs words which  have clearly defined and precise  meanings. This fact is used  frequently by the pompus and  inarticulate to give their utterances more meaning than they  in fact possess. For those who  come to the computer forum,  here are a few key words to  remember; the technical talk  Raiders keep  winning  by Barnibus & Company  Canfor Raiders continued  their winning streak this weekend as they shut out the first  place Sechelt Chiefs 3-0. It was  goal keeper Bob Crosbie's third  shut out. The Chiefs, who are  going to be playing in an all  Indian tournament in Victoria  Easter weekend, were without  goalie Dave Lamb and did not  field a full team.  The game was lacklustre as  the Raiders popped in three  quick goals without much  opposition. Dave White, Bob  Weston and Duncan Campbell  scored lor Canfor before the  Chiefs forfeited the match just  before the half mark.  Coach Jim Burns again  changed his team line up in a  successful effort to produce  more goals. In the last three  games, the Raiders have scored  16 goals. Top scorers for the  men in orange are Bob Weston  with 13, Dave White with 12  and Rob Stevens with nine. Art  Dew is the only Raider who  hasn't scored a goal besides  keeper Bob Crosbie.  No Coast League games are  scheduled for the Easter weekend. Raiders next game is on  Sunday, April 13 at Elphinstone High field.  Team supporters are reminded of the upcoming Wanderers dance on May 3 at 9:00  p.m. at Elphinstone High  School. Tickets 'ate $4.00 and  Horizon will be making all the  noise.

MICROPROSESSOR: The silicon chip device at the heart of  a microcomputer. This is like a  miniature fast calculator. It  adds, subtracts, multiplies,  divides, performs logical calculations, and moves data  around in the computer's  memory taking 600,000 to  1,200,000 instructions a second. The device contains  50,000-70,000 transistors.  BYTE: A computer 'word'.  Computers basically consist of  many thousands of on/off  switches. The running of the  computer can be described as  the turning on and off of these  switches. This sounds cumbersome but when there arc  1,000,000 to 4,000,000 of these  occuring every second it does  not really matter. A Bit is one  on/off. For convenience the  Byte, or 8 Bits, is used as a  standard of measurement.  Most small home computers  have a storage capacity of 16  thousand Bytes also known as  16K Bytes or just 16K. A  Megabyte is a million bytes.  The new small hard magnetic  disc storage units may hold 10  Megabytes. Incidentally each  Byte corresponds to one alphabetic or numeric character.  MEMORY: Next to the Microprocessor, the developments in  computer memory have been  the most important part in the  arrival of small, inexpensive  computers. Twenty years ago  an I.B.M. costing many millions of dollars might have 8K  of memory. Now you can buy a  16K memory card for under  $300. Memory is of several  types: RAM or Read/Write  memory can be used by the  computer at all times to store  and retrieve information. Unfortunately RAM "forgets"  when the power is turned off.  (RAM-Random Access Memory). (ROM-Read Only Memory) contains permanently  stored data. This is usually  computer programme (PROM)  enabling the computer to be  used as soon as it is switched  on.

WELCOME TO OUR NECK OF THE WOODS  BENNER'S FURNITURE  at the southern approach to Sechelt  From Skelly in Ottawa  Ocean Falls tragedy  ��  by Raymond Skelly, MP  Tuesday, March 18,1980  Although the federal election  results and the gearing-up of  the new/old Liberal government are worthy of some  comment there is a closer to  home and more urgent topic at  hand: Ocean Falls. The provincial governments's decision  to close down Ocean Falls is an  act of economic stupidity and  political vengeance.  When rumours surfaced  during the last provincial  election campaign that the B.C.  government was negotiating  with Kruger Pulp and Paper of  Montreal for the sale of Ocean  Falls, Premier Bennett promised no decision on the fate of  the industry and town would be  made without consultations.  The Premier promised in  January to visit Ocean Falls  and promised that his government would consult with that  and other communities on the  central coast. Neither the visit  nor the consultations ever took  place.  The eight thousand people  on the central coast have been  dealt a severe blow. The blow  has come with no democratic  community input. This is  particularly unacceptable because the Ocean Falls operation is not General Motors,  C.P.R. or some other private  sector enterprise free to make  corporate decisions from a  closed board room. The Ocean  Falls corporation is a publicly  owned enterprise created, in  part, to serve the employment  and economic needs of the  central coast.  I am now especially concerned about the future of  School District #47 and the  Central Coast Regional District. The loss of jobs at Ocean  Falls could have a staggering  spin-off effect in other areas of  employment and services. The  regional air, ferry and ro-ro  services are now threatened.  The decision to close Ocean  Falls has not been based on  rational or realistic economics  and a true cost benefit (including social costs) analysis.  My visit last week to Ocean  Falls and Bella Coola made it  clear that this has been a cold,  callous, politically cruel decision based on narrow Socred  ideology. It is almost unbelievable that no effort has been  made over the past five years to  upgrade the plant, attract new  investment,  and  protect  the  jobs and security of the central  coast  community.  Q  It is tragic that Mr. Benntitt  would deliver a death blow to  the central coast only days  before announcing the firjt  expenditures on his $1 billibii  B.C. Place project.  This is perhaps the dirtiestflf  all Socred tricks.

HOUSE BUILDING TERMS EXPANDED  People looking at newly built homes are often confused by many terms they  encounter. These are words that developers, builders and salesmen use  regularly and which have become so familiar to them that they tend to forget  novices to the construction industry may not understand.  A few of the common building terms you may encounter are explained here  as a public service by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver to help those  inspecting new homes offered for sale. Becoming familiar with them could make  your house hunting easier.  FOUNDATION - the lower portion of astructure, usually concrete or masonry,  including the footings, which transfers the weight of the building evenly to the  ground.  FRAMING ��� the rough timber work of a house, including the flooring, roofing,  partitioning, ceiling and beams.  GABLE - the upper triangular shaped portion of the end wall of a building.  GIRDER ��� a large or principal beam used to support concentrated loads at  isolated points along the length of a building.  GRADE - the surface slope, because the ground surface around the foundation  wall in this area may not be level. Ground surfaces are often cut and filled with a  building but the surrounding terrain remains 'graded' at various levels.  I-BEAM - a steel beam with a cross-section resembling the letter "I"  JOIST - one of a series of horizontal wood members, usually around 2 inches in  thickness, used to support a floor, ceiling or roof.  JOIST BRIDGING - a steel section shaped like a stirrup, bent to be fastened  around a beam to provide end support for joists.  KILN-DRIED LUMBER - lumber which has been seasoned in a kiln to lower the  moisture content to approximately 7%.  LAMINATE LUMBER - planks glued together to form a post or beam of thicker  dimension.  LOT LINE - the line which bounds a plot of ground described as a lot in the title  of the property.  MITER JOINT - a joint between two pieces of material on a line bisecting the  angle of their junction. p|fMe ,������, ,��� p,    ������,�����_ Sunshine Coast Realtor, April 1, 1980  Selling Your House or Land?
