Array The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25' per copy on news stands  April 2,1990        Volume 44        Issue 14  Decision unanimous  SCRD to petition  for logging halt  About 45 runners set off from Gibsons at the start of the 12th Annual April Fool's Day Run from  Gibsons to Sechelt. Full report of the run will be carried next week. ���Kent Sheridan photo  120 in attendance  by Caryl Worden  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board voted  unanimously last week to petition Ihe Ministry of Forests lo  hall logging in the Chapman-  Grey Creek watershed pending  approval of the Integrated  Water Management Plan or findings by an independent committee which the board has initiated.  "We need to be armed with  some statistical data to make a  decision on these licences that  have already been issued," Area  A Director Gordon Wilson said  at a special board meeting  Thursday night.  The board voted to set up a  committee which will determine  if logging in the 30-hectare  watershed cut area will affect  water quality. The committee  will be comprised of Chris Ortner of Internationa! Forest Product's (InterFor) Jackson division which has logging rights in  the watershed; Steve Waghorn,  a planning officer with the  District Forestry Office and  chairman of the Integrated  Water Management Commis-  Gospel Rock debate gees on  sion which is currently developing a plan for the area; and an  independent hydrotechnical  engineer to be recommended by  the SCRD's engineering firm  Dayton and Knight.  The committee is expected lo  report back quickly and the  SCRD board and Ortner made  a verbal agreement to abide by  the findings.  On Thursday morning, the  directors had met with logging  company representatives before  deciding whether to go ahead  with the moratorium. The  meeting was called as a result of  a protest al the previous week's  board meeting by logging contractor Sandy Gibb who  demanded that industry be  allowed to present its side.  "The immediate areas in  question have been in the plans  for five years, and subject to all  reviews, referrals, analysis and  public input," stated Gary  McDermid, an area logging  manager for InterFor. McDermid said that 25 jobs would be  lost by shutting down the  30-hectare watershed area.  "Logging which look place  25 years ago appears to be the  root of the cause of turbidity  problems in the Chapman,"  McDermid said. "The situation  is being compared to the current  plan and Ihe two are significantly different."  McDermid said that while the  by Ellen Frith  Echoing the sentiments of the  Peter Finch character in the  1976 movie, Network - "Pm  made as hell, and I'm not going  to take it anymore!" - approximately 120 area residents  crowded into Gibsons Council  Chambers last Monday to voice  unequivocal objection to any  rezoning and subdivision of the  land known as Gospel Rock.  Speaker after speaker rose  during the two-hour public  hearing to state environmental,  practical and social concerns  pertaining to the proposed  development slated for the 78  acre parcel of flat land above  Gower Point Road which, if  rezoned, could accommodate  150 or more houses.  "This is 1990 and a new era,"  one resident stated, "and it's  not an easy time for developers.  This is a very, very important  issue and the integrity of this  town is wrapped up in that property."  "In this day and age,"  another resident observed, "we  deserve development plans that  .are comprehensive and intelligent and that care for the  environment."  No one present at the meeting, besides the proposed  developer Hayden Killam,  himself, appeared to think the  Gospel Rock subdivision proposal followed any of the  criteria necessary for the care of  a sensitive and unique environmental area such as the  lands around Gospel Rock are  claimed to be.  A representative from the  Coast Association for the Protection of the Environment  (CAPE) argued that less than  five per cent of BC's dry bluff  areas, such as is represented by  Gospel Rock, are left. The property in question, she said, contains the most striking grove of  Arbutus trees on the Coast and  a varied and diverse selection of  moss, lichen, wild flowers and  animal life.  In pushing through the  development now, she said,  without expert environmental  advice being sought: "We  would be losing a valuable  resource we know little about."  In a statement to council read  at the beginning of the public  meeting, the developer says he  will, upon subdivision approval,  "...endeavor to create a living  area for some 150 families that  is esthetlcally pleasing to those  -outside the area and to those  within. He will keep environmental (green) parameters uppermost as he develops the spec-  lacular views from the  property."  It was stated by several  speakers that in order to create  these "spectacular views", trees  on the escarpment would have  to be cut or topped, road access  made available and other extensive disturbances made to an  area which is a well-loved and  unique environment to both  long-term resident and  newcomer alike.  Concerns regarding the park  dedication issue and whether  Killam would or would not, in  fact, turn over Gospel Rock  itself and the surrounding  waterfront property to the town  as parkland, were also raised by  a number of speakers.  Killam, accompanied by his  legal advisor, Sechelt lawyer  Michael Welsh, said the required five per cent parkland  dedication would occur only if  rezoning and subdivision took  place.  In his written statement to  council, he says: "That council  should note that at this time,  without altered zoning or further subdivision, the owner of  the property could obtain, a   g   a .property owner on Gower  building^permit to construct tuttyj  Poinl RoH addressed council  old logged area had steep  ground with an unstable base of  silly gravel, the area to be logged is a moderate slope with a  stable rock base. He added that  old logging practices included  using a cat or shovel for road  conslructin and Utile attention  was paid to culverts, while today an excavator is used in construction and "major attention  is given to drainage patterns."  At its March 22 meeting, the  board voted to demand that the  province clean-up the old logging sites which have caused  creekside gouges that are  discharging silly run-off into  Chapman Creek and creating  major turbidity.  Ortner said that the clean-up  was already in the company's  plans within the next two years,  and that a silviculture plan for  the area "had been hammered  out" with the forest service  earlier lasl week.  "If you put on a moratorium  now, where's the impetus for  any kind of co-operation?"  Ortner asked. "Nothing's going  lo get fixed if we just slam the  door."  In his prepared statement for  the meeting, Ortner traced  Jackson Brothers' willing involvement with recreationalists  in developing a network of hiking and ski trails and cabins in  the Tetrahedron. Ortner said  Please turn lo page 14  residence upon the promontory  known as Gospel Rock and thus  remove forever the possibility of  this area becoming a public  park."  He further states that  parkland is obtained, not upon  zoning, but upon subdivision.  Killam also points out, "that  the town may purchase, or obtain through gift, parkland but  that any other method would  constitute blackmail."  Town Planner Rob Buchan  told the meeting that because of  the environmental sensitivity of  the area in question and the  presence of an established eagle  tree, the Ministry of Environment "would oversee this subdivision with me."  He also said Killam's statement in regard to obtaining a  building permit to construct a  residence upon Gospel Rock  was incorrect.  In answer to a question from  the Coast News, Buchan stated  that any building permit application would come before  him as Approving Officer and  many of the same concerns  would apply in considering that  application as had been voiced  at the meeting in regard to the  proposed subdivision.  Jim Gurney, who spoke at  the March 13 Public Hearing as  last Monday as Director of Area  E. He voiced several concerns  of those Area E residents who  would be directly affected by  the subdivision such as access,  drainage, impact on the surrounding lower density area and  park dedication.  Gurney concluded his statement by urging council to approach the Sunshine Coast  Regional District for financial  assistance "in purchasing land  in excess of the five per cent  dedication to make this park  large enough to meet the aspirations of the community..."  Several speakers during the  public meeting had also voiced  the possibility of the town buying the waterfront property.  Mayor Diane Strom stressed  that rezoning the area did not  necessarily mean approval of  the subdivision plans but many  of those present felt one would  follow the other.  The zoning amendment bylaw is slated for consideration  on the agenda of the April 3  council meeting.  Sechelt meeting  If you are concerned about how your taxes are being spent  in the district of Sechell, you owe it to yourself to attend a  meeting on Sunday, April 8 al 2 pm in Greenecourt Hall.  Please come, and bring a friend.  Tourist grant  The Sechelt Chamber of Commerce received a $3100 grant  last week from the Ministry of Tourism. In accompanying  letters, Harold Long, MLA and Cliff Michael, Minister of  Tourism, said that they were pleased to present the Travel InfoCentre with the funds to assist with renovations, improved  parking and interior upgrading.  One hundred dollars of the grant is to assist with costs incurred in installing a FAX machine, previously shipped by the  Ministry.  The Chamber is very pleased to have received this grant  and hopes to soon sport new front doors, new flooring and a  designated handicapped parking space.  Killam presses town  for prompt action  According lo the statement  presented to the Town of Gibsons Council at the March 26  public hearing concerning Ihe  rezoning of Gospel Rock by  developer Hayden Killam, the  apparently overwhelming public  objection lo the proposed subdivision of 78 acres situated  above Gower Point Road is not  what It stems.  According to Killam, an analysis of the letters, petitions and  attendance at both Information  ind public hearings has shown  Ihe following:  "a. Thai Ihe total information Input comes from about  200 individuals.  b. Thai only 50 to 60 of these  appear on Ihe town's voter list.  c. Thai this represents less  than four per cent of Ihe  registered voters.  d. Thai as you are aware,  those who are against proposals  make themselves known, however, the silent majority who  may favour such proposals do  not.  e. Thai virtually all the input  so far has been directed towards  the obtaining of parkland.  f. That the few who have addressed the zoning issue have  not appeared overly concerned  with the R-l designation."  Killam further states that  since over six months have passed since initial application was  made, "the applicant requests  thai council give the by-law second, third and final reading at  their council meeting on Tuesday, April 3, 1990."  He concludes by saying he  feds Ihe subdivision "will be a  positive economic Impact on  both the town municipal structure and the private sector."  Hammering in nails was part of the action at the Rockwood Centre's Children's Day held last week.

It did not need, you can be sure, the astute Mr. Hayden  Killam to point out to Mayor Strom and Clerk-  Administrator Goddard that most of the people making  petition about Gospel Rock were not Gibsons taxpayers. The last time some of the more prominent  spokesmen appeared in public was to emphatically  make plain that they wanted no part of the town of Gibsons. Surely even they must be getting an inkling that  there is a contradiction implicit in their behaviour.  If there can be no taxation without representation in a  democracy, it is equally true you can't have representation without taxation. The quality of life on the Sunshine Coast is not divisible. What happens in Gibsons  does obviously affect the adjacent rural areas, indeed  apparently affects them to the point of passion.  There is a spate of development going on on this  Coast which is unprecedented and our warring government jurisdictions are ill-equipped to deal with it. The  aforementioned Mr. Killam has had stormy relationships with Sechelt and with the SCRD in the past but he  is a new man in Gibsons.  We need to have a single district municipality and if  we don't act soon it will be too late, if it isn't already.  The self-serving regional directors who have built  political empires out of fanning the flames of discord  have served us ill. They have been content to protect the  status quo, taken no initiatives to rationalise our  ridiculously over-governed Coast. Even Gordon Wilson  pays only lip service to a single district municipality. He  presses for no referendum to explore the issue.  Meanwhile all of the passion and all of the petitions in  the world do not assure the residents of Areas E and F a  voice in the deliberations of Gibsons. They have long  made plain that they didn't want one. The chickens are  coming home to roost on Gospel Rock.

What faced them, of course,  and caused the emotive stirrings  that prompted the mayor to call  for order, was the prospect of  yet another butchered piece of  BC - this time right in our own  backyard.  In the centre of it all sat  developer Hayden Killam,  lawyer beside him; both men  outwardly calm amidst the dis-'  quiet of a crowd upset by the  possibility of losing a well-loved  place.  Maybe Killam was inwardly  calm as well. It's difficult to tell  as he is a man who, perhaps  through self-consciousness,  never ceases to wear the bemused smile of a well fed cat.  Stories of the healing spirituality  of Gospel Rock or of its unique  wildlife appeared to slide off his  sleekness.  He's a cool customer adhering to the popular dictum that  helped build North America  - everyman is king on his own  private piece of land.  Not long ago our federal  minister of the environment  stepped forth to raise issue with  the question of the sovereignty  of the country of Brazil over its  In a nutshell  ecologically important rainforests. Since the rainforests affected the rest of the world, Mr.  Bouchard argued, perhaps  Brazil should not have exclusive  control. It's a point well made.  Surely, however, as we begin  seeking international stewardship of sensitive areas, we  should look inward at what  leeway exists in the private  ownership of land in this country and what devastation has  been wreaked in its name.  At Monday's meeting, Mr.  Killam made no bones about  the fact Gospel Rock is privately owned and that he could  build a house upon it if he so  wished. In fact, he went so far  as to imply he would get a  building permit and do just that  if he didn't get the rezoning he  wanted; a threat the Town  Planner deflected somewhat by  indicating a building permit  would not be as easily available  as all that.  But the idea remains, lhat a  private owner can do what he  wants on his own property in-  spite of the opposition of a  significant number of his  neighbours. And here, of  course, is where our local governing body comes in. In this  case, Gibsons Council.  Not long ago, after a public  meeting in which approximately  nine or 10 Gibsons citizens  argued against the subdivision,  council defeated a by-law rezoning a piece of property near the  junction of North and Reed  Roads which had been proposed for a mobile home park.  That rezoning, similar to the  Gospel Rock one, was contrary  to the Official Community  Plan, was deemed dangerously  overcrowded, difficult due to  the lack of easy access and  would have meant the cutting  down of a number of trees.  It was not, however, as is  Gospel Rock, in an environmentally sensitive area.  This particular subdivision  was envisioned as a site for 74  mobile homes which really did  seem too many at the time but it  is true that Gibsons is in dire  need of low cost housing. What  the town doesn't need is another  exclusive subdivision project  aimed at those relative few in  the higher income brackets who  are able to buy for their own  personal use, a panoramic view  formerly available and enjoyed  by all.  Mr. Killam was also politically astute enough to play on the  obvious antipathy between local  governments on this Coast and,  in a letter, went to the bother of  pointing out to council the  breakdown of the protesting  public.

Baseball, for television sportsmen, has been saved we understand by those engaged agreeing  to minor Maharaja  salaries. Nothing to do with us.  Play ball is all we ask, and now  it seems that for the time they  will. Bully.  But with the sap, some sap  anyway, rising as it will there  comes a tagging thought that  somehow we ourselves might  get engaged. Almost anything  perhaps would do. Skate boarding down School Hill would  perhaps be beyond us, but  unless golf is your game (a total  life-entangling bit) you may be  hard pressed to find a sport that  takes your fancy.  It's really rather tentatively  that I bring up croquet. It's  known of course as a lawn game  played by people dressed in  crinolines out of something by  Jane Austen, but cricket is also  known as a game of people  dressed in flannels loping  elegantly about between tea  breaks. The West Indies team  for one will show you anything  but.  Croquet is played with  wooden balls which have very  much the resonance of skulls. It  seems not to be proved that  Ghengis Khan developed the  game in Khazakstan where he  had seen to it that skulls were in  supply. In any event the rules as  Ihey come down give a maximum scope for savagery.  Played as it often is against a  background of rhododendron,  delphinium etc., it has caused  the ends of marriages and, according to P.G. Wodehouse,  empires have been in balance.  Our version, developed in  Digby, Nova Scotia in 1945,  took it just a step beyond. A  significant step we thought, the  game was played in total  darkness except for a light one  carried oneself. 'Midnight Croquet' we dubbed it, drew up the  rules and sent them to the  British Lawn Games Association, whatever it was called. We  got no reply, but on our own  carried it overseas and made it  international.  In Midnight Croquet you  have your mallet in your right  hand, right? And in your left  you have a flashlight. The  hoops and posts in the dark  beyond are more a challenge  than a target. It is not unknown  for a player to get entangled in  the hoops and be out there for a  good part of the night.  But the rules as drawn in  Digby have it that the player  must also carry a glass. A  mallet, a flashlight, and a glass.  It is not however stipulated  what must be in the glass.  The first international game  was played in Bermuda. The  bravos I was with were submariners to whom I was attach  ed by one of those odd hap-  penstances, as the only air force  bloke. Our operation took us to  where the Greenland current  met the Gulf stream, and  sometimes we'd go beyond.  There were then two other submarines based in Bermuda.  The first time, approaching  their mess in St. George's, we  noticed, just beyond the light  from their windows, a croquet  lawn. That night though we had  to play their game, the infamous Beam Game.  In this you inched along a  very narrow beam, which stretched across a wide high ceiling-  ed hall ten feet from the deck.  In your hand you had a line attached to a wicker basket. Every  six steps you let it down, pulled  up a tot of Navy rum, downed it  and pressed on.  They had their fun with us I  guess that night, but on the  morrow we challenged them to  Midnight Croquet. Croquet?  They couldn't believe it. The  reputation of H.M. s/m 'Unseen' was at stake.  It didn't take long for them  to realize that they were in a  venue where we knew where we  were and Ihey were simple  blunderers. A croquet ball hit  right at night has a sound as  good as any shot, and the ball  whizzes by like any cannon ball  that whizzed at Trafalgar.  Finally there was the unmistakable howl of the Captain  of the Bermuda boat. 'Oh  sorry' came our skipper's voice,  crisply from the dark. 'That you  Roger?'  On second thought it may not  be the best idea to introduce  croquet into this, or any other  happy community. If anyone  wants to try though, and asks  me to referee, I'll want a catcher's mask and all of the pads.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News, April 2,1990  Letters to the Editor    I  ���������.^a���...���a���.as������������__^_^^.^  Misinformation seen a hazard  Editor:  Misinformation has a nasty  habit of being believed if it appears in print or is said often  enough. There is some information which needs to be provided  so this whole issue can be sorted  out by the members concerned:  The Board of School Trustees  and the parents of children involved in French Immersion.  Dr. Geoff Mills, the head of  the Department of Modern  Languages with the Ministry of  Education, visitd the Sunshine  Coast on March 15. Dr. Mills  has been involved with French  Immersion in this province for  many years.  When asked about the cost of  Early French Immersion, Dr.  Mills stated very clearly that the  cost of educating a child in  French is exactly the same as  educating a child in English.  Both children require teachers,  classrooms, textbooks and  equipment. The provincial  government provides the same  amount of money per child  regardless of whether that child  receives an education in French  or English.  On top of this the federal  government provides a start-up  grant for each new class of Early French Immersion. This is  where some districts have been  able to make money on their  immersion programs. Funds left  over from these grants have  been used to supplement theit  English programs. There is no  possible chance that, "monies  allocated to the English program are being siphoned off to  French Immersion," as APEC  states. With careful manag-  ment, exactly the opposite can  be true!  The only extra cost of the  Early French Immersion in this  district has been about $8000 a  year. Mr. Tim Anderson, the  secretary-treasurer, states this  cost has been for busing. This  busing has been provided by the  board not because the parents  requested it, but rather because  the board wanted the Early  French Immersion to be ac-  cessbile to all children in the  district. With a centralized immersion program and some  creative management, even this  $8000 could be trimmed to  almost nothing if off-set by  start-up grant money saved  because of a centralized program.  Middle Immersion is a whole  different issue. In British Columbia there presently is not extra funding, no trained teachers,  no program and very little interest or support from parents  or children. The cost of a Middle Immersion program could  be considerable. As such, the  board is now reconsidering its  initial decision to phase out Ear  ly French Immersion in favour  of Middle Immersion.  Canada is a democratic, bilingual country. This bil-  ingualism is the one thing that  makes us different from the  United States. This bilingualism  gives us an identity which is unique.  We must work hard to keep  this uniqueness alive. We must  work equally hard to ensure  that the democracy we take for  granted, survives.  In Canada the federal  government has enabled parents  to combine democracy and bilingualism in their choice of how  they educate their children. The  right of choice is a fundamental  right granted us by our Charter.  Whether we choose to  educate our children in English  or French is not the issue. The  issue is whether we can work  together diligently to ensure that  we always have that choice!  R.

Editor:  To say I disagree with objections to the Coast News'  editorial cartoon from March  19 would be conservative to say  the least. This cartoon may be  considered an exaggeration but  the theme is a popular and  strongly backed channel of  reasoning across Canada. The  basic idea behind the cartoon is  a very valid one.  Last month, I had the opportunity to go to the Terry Fox  Youth Centre in Ottawa to meet  with other youth from across  Canada. One of the issues we  discussed was what makes  Canada different from the  United States. All of us knew  there was a fundamental difference but no one could put it  Here are just a few of the many benefits of  routine auto maintenance:  ��� Increases mileage and fuel efficiency  ��� Keeps your engine running smooth  ��� Avoids unnecessary wear  ��� Provides better handling on all terrain  and in all weather  ��� Increases re-sale value of auto  ��� Insures safety and peace of mind  Don't wait til it's too late!

Our conclusion was that a  Canadian was unique from an  American because of a few  small yet key differences. One  of these was identified as the  Royal Canadian Mounted  Police. Differing from the  United States, Canada has a national police force that makes it  unusual and unique. Part of  Canada's tradition is a united  police force that can compete  with the most efficient in the  world.  The uniform happens to be  one of the identifying  characteristics of an RCMP officer and very important to the  difference between a Canadian  and an American. The Parliament Buildings in Ottawa  wouldn't be the same without  Good  course  Editor:  I am writing to thank you for  the excellent article you ran in  January about the 'Young  Drivers of Canada' course now  available on the Sunshine  Coast. It provided just the incentive I needed to take the  course.  I used to wonder, as I'd see  the YD training car go by, what  the instructor could possibly be  teaching the student that a  parent, friend or spouse  couldn't. Now 1 know!  Having received both professional and non-professional instruction, I can appreciate the  value of a methodical and progressive program that teaches all  aspects of vehicle handling, including emergency maneuvers.  The course emphasizes learning effective 'seeing' habits and  proven means of safely positioning one's vehicle in traffic  regardless of conditions.  The two instructors, Bernice  Berry and Rosina Giles, are like  all YD instructors, fully trained  professionals who receive  regular upgrading. Yet both are  congenial, relaxed and inspire  self-confidence in even the most  timid of students.  It's a fallacy that learning to  drive involves little more than  simply knowing the rules of the  road and being able to safely  operate the vehicle.  For those who object to paying for such instruction, consider this: In our society we  think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars on self or  children to become proficient in  'frivolous' activities, like dance  or playing an instrument.  We even deem scuba or flying  lessons essential because these  pursuits are potentially  dangerous, so those wishing to  participate in these activities  willingly pay the required  amounts for qualified instruction.  Yet when it comes to learning  to drive, a 'hit-and-miss' approach to instruction seems to  suffice for most of the population. Perhaps that explains, in  part, our growing accident  rates.  For these reasons, I highly  recommend the Young Drivers  course to all new drivers - young  and not-so-young. (And for the  veteran driver, the YD 'Driver  Improvement Program'). It will  prove to be money and time  very well spent, the benefits of  which will last a lifetime.  Sheridan Wood  Sechelt, BC  the familiar sight of an officer  clad in red sitting on a horse.  Not to be seen as 'racist' as  your cartooner has been labelled, I do wish to point out the  Webster's definition of  uniform: "not varying in form,  rate degree...all alike; not varying among themselves". If a  Canadian citizen wants to be  recognized as one of Canada's  respected RCMP, then he must  agree to wear the unique  uniform that all his fellow countrymen have agreed on wearing  regardless of their background,  religion, or race.  Canada and Canadians can  be proud to be distinct in many  ways from the United States.  We must continue to protect  any tradition or sovereignty we  have, so our children in the  future can also say that Canada  is a unique society with original  customs. Hopefully they can  say with dignity that they are a  Canadian, and understand what  it means.

It could be a place, he says,  different from anywhere else,  where people come to shop and  to walk just for the pleasure of  it. A nice place where people  don't have to constantly look  both ways for traffic.  It could be an open air mall  where cars are allowed but slowed down; where people come to  buy an ice cream or a souvenir  or to have a meal. It could be a  place special enough, in other  words, to attract the tourists  and those visitors who may  otherwise whiz by the town on  the new proposed by-pass.  DeKleer's vision, and that of  the other 23 members of the  GLMS, is at this stage fairly  simple and not that costly. All  that is needed is some minor adjustments to the present parking  regulations and to the speed  limit, new street signs, some colourful planters, a possible  decorative traffic island at the  corner of Gower Point Road  and School Road and a little imagination. ��  "Let's make Gibsons Landing, from Jack's Lane to the  marina, pedestrian friendly,"  DeKleer says. "The secret is to  slow everything down."  At last week's Committee-of-  the-Whole meeting, DeKleer  was given permission to  establish 13 planters at various  points in the lower town subject  to them not impeding fire  hydrants or taking up parking  spaces.  The planters are 36 inches in  diametre, 30 inches high and  will be purchased and maintained by members of the GLMA.  The issue of the possible traffic island, signs, reduced speed  limit and change in parking will  have to wait, council told  DeKleer, until a report on the  GLMA idea is prepared by the  town planner, the building inspector and the superintendent  of public works.

D. MULLIGAN, FIRE CHIEF  by EHen Frith  The possible use of the Sunshine Coast Marine History  Society's (SCMHS) logo by the  Town of Gibsons and the  number of days the finished  ship The Discovery would end  up moored in the town after being built in the waterfront park  were contended by the Gibsons  Aldermen at last week's  Committee-of-the-Whole  meeting.  The lease, presently being  drawn up between the two parties for use of the park by the  society, deals only with a two-  year period ending May 31,  1992, and these items must be  dealt with in a separate document, said Alderman John  Reynolds.  Reynolds argued that the use  of the society's logo on town  letterhead had been an important issue in the initial agreement with the SCMHS and that  it now appeared the society had  "changed its mind".  Reynolds said he also felt the  SCMHS   should   clarify   the  number of days the ship would  be moored in Gibsons in later  years before any lease was signed.  "I'm personally of the opinion that just letting them build  the boat here is not a fair exchange for use of the land," he  said.  Mayor Diane Strom agreed  with Reynolds but the other  aldermen felt these were not  particularly important issues.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  suggested, however, council ask  the SCMHS to propose the  number of days within an extended period of time it was  prepared to moor the ship in  Gibsons and told council the  society had a commercial offer  for exclusive use of its logo.  "They are willing to design  another logo for our use," she  said.  Council agreed to ask the  society to present its alternatives  to the official logo and to ask  for some indication of the  mooring possibilities for the  following years.

He points  out that if the town allows 90  degree parking instead of angle  parking, the lower town could  accommodate 30 per cent more  cars.

Very  little has been said about the  history and ownership of the  property. Some of these facts  were brought to light at the  hearing into this matter on the  13th of March.  Developments of this sort are  required to provide five per cent  of their land for public use,  generally as parkland. The  choice of which part of the property is lo be so designated is up  to the municipal authority. The  developer can also be allowed to  buy out the value of the five per  cent in cash if the municipality  decides this is to its advantage.  So the common way to develop  a large parcel of land is to do so  in separate developments beginning with the least valuable  area. In this manner, five per  cent is taken from each development separately. This reduces  the amount of valuable land  taken for public use and  minimizes the buy out price for  the developer. If the parcel were  developed as a single piece, the  municipality could take all of  the most valuable part for its  five per cent park dedication.  With respect to the Gospel  Rock area, this is exactly what  we see. The less valuable and  less controversial part of the  property is the question of the  current rezoning application.  Officially, Gospel Rock is not  even supposed to be mentioned  at the public hearing. However,  the relevance of discussing the  complete parcel of land at one  time is clear to everyone. In addition, this property is made up  of two distinct blocks, only one  which includes Gospel Rock  and the eagle tree, that being  Block 7.  At the last public meeting,  after listening to virtually  unanimous opposition to his application, Mr. Killam, the  developer, made a very noble  sounding speech. He stated that  since the town's people obviously wanted Gospel Rock and the  area above to be the required  park dedication for his development, then of course, that is  what   would   be   the   case.  Gospel Rock  However, as everyone aba  heard at the meeting, Mi.  Killam siammered more than  audibly when asked if that piece  of the property could be used to  satisfy the five per cent requirement for the lands in his application, particularly for Block?  6.  As for the history I promised  above, it includes some equally  enlightening facts. As mentioned, the land in question is part*  of two blocks.  These were::  originally purchased from the;  Crown by a gentleman named  William   Valentine  Messenger  on November 13,1945 for $665 '-���  and held by him until December 1  17, 1974. On that date, for the j  price of $1,  Frederick John  Child, also of Gibsons, became.  a  joint   owner   with   Mr.;  Messenger. On the death of Mr.j  Messenger in 1977, Mr. Child j  became the sole owner of the  property.  More recently, Mr. Child has j  maintained control of the pro- j  perty through the appropriately  named Valentine Lands Cor- ���  poration, of which he is Ibefi  authorized signatory. The only  other event of significance with;  respect to these lands up until ���  the present rezoning application.  was the granting of an Option j!  to Purchase, which although '  still registered against the title of  the property, appears to have :.  expired.   This   option   was"  granted to Gower Point In--  vestments in 1981 for the sum of -  $20,000. Charles Mitten was the "  authorized signatory for Gower '-.  Point Investments.  In light of the information '.  above, I'd like to close with a B  public request to Mr. Child to 1  consider a more generous ap- ;���  proach to a part of the town \'.  that a great many people value ���  highly, In addition, the village I  might consider initiating discus- '-  sions to obtain Gospel Rock ��  and the rest of the waterfront ��  part of Block 7 as well as the C  lands above it for a park to be B  named after Messrs. Child and I  Messenger. Then an application I  to rezone the lands in Block 6 -  and the upper half of Block 7 -  could be entertained without *  everyone fearing that is was the E  precursor to development of ;  Gospel Rock itself.  Alex Nicol  i  Gibsons S  Continued from page 2  supporters are actually on the  Gibsons voting list, he says.  Nothing to worry about, that's  less than four per cent of the  vote. Area E may be cheek by  jowl to the proposed subdivision but it's not in the ballgame.  Killam then goes on to claim  it has been 200 days since his initial application for rezoning  was made and asks that council  give second, third and final  reading to the bill at Tuesday's  meeting. It's only fair, he says.  One of the salient points raised by Monday's public hearing  is whether or not the days of the  omnipotent developer are over.  As someone claimed that evening, we are in a new era and environmental issues are of paramount importance.  Gospel Rock is not merely a  piece of Gibsons important only  to the voters of that town. It is a  beautiful and sensitive place on  this earth and deserves the  greatest care in its preservation.  It is hoped Gibsons Council  will emphatically oppose the  rezoning by-law and that the  Gospel Rock area will be protected until such time as an in-  depth and independent environmental study is made.

Taking stock of our own polluting  by George Cooper, WM520  In olden days of innocence  the tang of wood smoke from  the campfire was greeted with  pleasure. Smoke from backyard  rubbish fires was an acceptable  sign of spring.  Now we learn of the hazards  to our health lhat come from  wood smoke. Pollutants such as  carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide,  sulphur dioxide as well as particles can lead to lung diseases  including cancer. Their very  names are frightening.  Some towns in closed valleys  like Creston, for instance, have  from season to season a very  smoke-filled atmosphere.  Creston, once called by a resident a 'town of smells' - some  from the mash of Kokanee  beer; others wafting out from  an alfalfa dehydrating plant;  and another from a beehive  burner in the middle of town - is  often wrapped in a pall of  smoke.  Some say smoke comes from  Idaho nearby when slash is  burned and the wind is right.  Home wood fires add to the  pollution of the air.  When a study of the air  began in Port Alberni, it was  difficult to determine just what  harmful particles were emitted  by the pulp mills because of the  smoke from the multitude of  home wood stoves in the town.  The distinction was made by  assuming the salt particles (from  hog fuel burning) and hydrogen  sulphide came only from the  mills.  Here in Gibsons we may not  feel that wood smoke is much  of an air pollutant. But judging  from the number of times the  wailing siren denotes a fire  (many of them chimney fires),  there's a significant amount of  wood burned for house heating.  The town has no by-laws to deal  out penalties to those who have  chimney fires and no certificate  of a clean chimney from a  licensed sweep.  A publication of the British  Columbia Lung Association  lists some do's and don'ts for  the effective burning of wood  fuel. Too large a stove for the  space to be heated likely means  a dampered fire and more  smoke than should be tolerated.  Insurance companies now ask if  the stove you have is approved  by the Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada.  Clean seasoned firewood is a  must. Green, wet, or chemically  treated wood is a big no-no. In  case you didn't know, now is  the time tr stock up with next  winter's wood, for we are told  split stove wood needs eight  months to season under cover.  Burning household garbage  and newspapers adds to air  pollution. Don't burn on poor  air-quality days, we are told,  bul then lhat is when we most  want fires. Smoke from your  chimney? Get more air into  your stove. Even lazy flames indicate incomplete burning.  It is so easy for us to beat  away at the large corporations  for polluting, and often, it is no  doubt necessary, but then what  about our own polluting with  wood smoke and motor emissions? Don't care?  The Lung Association's  1-800-665-LUNG is a quick  connection to their office and a  request for their pamphlets on  heating the home with wood.

Through it, $134 was raised and will go to the Cystic  Fibrosis Fund,  Of course, all of the babies  and toddlers were cute and it  must have been very hard for  Chris at Photo Works to pick  winners. But he did and here are  the results: 0-6 months, Olivia  Watt; 7-15 months, Brittany  Lizie; 16-24 months, Lars and  Torstein Engeset; ages 2 and 3,  Paige (granddaughter of Shirley  Embleton); and the people's  choice, Kylee Walker.  Thanks to you all for your  generous donations and congratulations to the kids, all of  them, you're all winners.  DAFFODILS  Daffodils are delightful harbingers of spring, and hope. On  April 6 and 7, the Canadian  Cancer Society volunteers will  be selling daffodils in the mall  and various other locations on  the Coast. Please buy some.  The flowers will soon fade but  your contribution will go a long  way to help the society realize  their goal of $20,000.  FUN FAIR  The Fun Fair at Rockwood  Centre on March 24 was a blast!  Balloons, face painting, fashion  shows, puppets, the California  Raisins were there, so were the  RCMP and the SPCA. At the  finish there was the blood  pressure-raising sight of kids  with big sticks whacking the  stuffing out of several large,  touch pinatas. Great fun all of it  and oh, yes, my granddaughter  enjoyed it too.

He very kindly took her to the  Gibsons Animal Clinic where it  was discovered that two of her  legs and one eye had been injured. She was also ravenously  hungry.  The clinic staff report that  this dog is extremely friendly in  spite of her obvious experiences.  and they hope that whoever lost  her will see this notice and come  and get her soon.

My preliminary judgment  and forecast for most exiciting  evenings of entertainment on  the evenings of March 24 and 25  didn't come close to the overall  success of both evenings for  down to earth enjoyment.  Both Nikki Weber and Connie Wilson were at their very  best as conductress and accompanist respectively for the entire  show. Solos were presented by  such entertainers as Arlene Collins, Pattie Miller, Walter  James, Beth Sheppard, Floyd  Carmen, John Hamilton,  George and Margie Carpenter.  Group entertainers for the  evening were the 69ers, New  Semi-Tones, the Barber-  Shoppers, Rolling Tones and  the Mills Brothers (so called)  not to forget a duet by Floyd  and Nikki.  RECRUITS  If you enjoy singing, there is  room for three or four more  voices in our 69ers group. Also,  the new Barber-Shoppers (no  official name yet) are interested  in having additional voices.  Further information may be  had by contacting Nikki Weber  at 885-9091.  SPRING TEA  The Spring Tea and Sale held  on March 24 was fairly well attended.  A choice of baked  goods, Easter items, wood  items, jewellery, and among  other things, there were raffles  in progress during the sale.  Hampers were won by Isobel  Draper and Audrey Kneale.  Dianne Muliins won an afghan  while Esther Burgess won a  cake. Refreshments were  available and enjoyed by all.  AQUARIUM TRIP  As mentined in previous columns. May Widman has  prepared a bus trip to the  Aquarium in Vancouver for  April 4. The bus will leave the  area of the Royal Bank in the  Trail Bay Mall at 9:20 am and  return is planned for the 5:30  ferry out of Horseshoe Bay.

Animals and vehicles
by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9099
Lovely weather we've been
having, isn't it? Interesting that
the sun seems to have a
detrimental effect on some people's brains. They fail to realize
that a vehicle sitting in the sun
with no windows left open for
ventilation works like an oven.
It gets very hot.
Animals left in unventilated
vehicles get very hot too. If they
get hot enough, they can suffer
heat stroke and die. If you
didn't guess the punch line yet,
here it is: On sunny days, please
leave your window open a crack
if you're leaving an animal in
your vehicle.

Remember when we all signed petitions and sent letters protesting the elimination of the
Halfmoon Bay Post Office?
There were several meetings of a
committee under the chairmanship of Jim Elliott, who,
together with his wife worked
very hard on our behalf.
We were informed that all
this correspondence would be
brought before a Standing
Committee in Ottawa some
time in early March.
I wondered what had happened regarding this and decided to call Jim and find out so
that it could be passed along to
our readers.
It seems that the Standing
Committee was dissolved.
That's one way to get out of a
However, all hope is not yet
gone. Apparently Liberal MP
Mr. Boudria now has all the
documents and will be presenting them with our and other
cases to the House of Commons
early this month.
Whether anything will come
of this remains to be seen, considering that the latest Canada
Post Plan states that more than
5000 rural post offices will be
closed within the next decade.
A reminder to members and
to any newcomers to the area
that the Halfmoon Bay Branch
of St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary will meet on Monday
morning, April 9 at Welcome
Beach Community Hall.
You are always made most
welcome at these monthly
meetings and will find yourself
amazed at how much good this
busy group do for Our hospital.
The Welcome Beach Preschool is now accepting registrations for this fall. This is for
children three and four years
old and is located at the new
Halfmoon Bay school.
For information call Jane at
Our area will be saying goodbye to two couples who have
been very hard workers in the
community, particularly with
the Welcome Beach Community Association.
Fred and Eileen Greaves will
be leaving for the Lower
Mainland and Bill and Marg
Vorley will be in the Sechelt
area. Our sincere good wishes
go with these good people.

883-2406 14.  Coast News, April 2,1990  The California Raisins were a popular part of the Children's  Fun Day held at Rockwood Centre last week. (See story below).  A day for children  by Ruth Forrester  The Rockwood Centre  volunteers put on a great day  for kids of all ages last Saturday, March 24.  There was good food and  entertainment with all sorts of  novelty activities which included  a wardrobe room full of dressup  clothes from which fashions of  all kinds were modelled by the  little ones. They were able to  make their own hats at one table  and could have faces painted at  another.  The California Raisins were a  popular pair with the little ones,  as was the area set up for the  kids to pound nails. At another  table little plant pots were  available where the kids could  plant seeds, take home the pots  and watch their flowers grow.  Shirley Burton on guitar was  a big attraction as she knew all  the songs that the little ones like  to sing and they sang along with  great enthusiasm.  In all, it was a most pleasant  day and many thanks are due to  those who gave of their time  and skills for the enjoyment of  the wee ones.

Hagen, Minister  Roberts    Creek  Spring in the Creek  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  It's Anally here. Spring has  hit Roberts Creek. It's the first  week of April and the sun is  climbing higher in the sky every  day. The nights are getting  shorter, the birds are singing,  chirping and whistling earlier  every morning. Today I even  feel good about the starlings  making their familiar imitation  noises on the roof of the house.  It means spring has arrived.  The late February large dark  purple crocuses are fading, to  be replaced with yellow, white  and a crop of purple, mauve  and white-striped crocuses.  They too were a group of bulbs  that I forgot I had planted in  late October thinking of that  old bare spot in the flower bed.  There are many daffodils just  aboul open, one brave trumpeter has totally opened its  beautiful face. The lilacs and  honey suckle vines are growing  fast now.  In the greenhouse many  flower and tomato plants are  popping out of the dirt with the  help, of course, of artificial heat  and light. But this is a necessity  in this area if you want to grow  from seed.  Out to the big stump in the  back of the house I go with an  armful of shirts and tops. There  is nothing better than pulling  one of these over your head  Logging  petition  Continued from page 1  the company felt it had been  "slapped in the face" when the  first call for a halt to logging  came only six months later in  the summer of 1989. "Our  friends of the year before, who  wanted to recreate where we  work, now became our foes,"  he said.  Ortner also said that despite  Jackson Brothers' ongoing  planning for the area since  1972, the regional district had  not taken any interest and that  it was the company who had  made the first move to inform  them. "Our plans have considered water quality before  most people in this room had  heard of the Tetrahedron,"  Ortner said.  Several logging representatives complained that if the  area was to be closed down to  forestry, it should also be closed  to recreational use. Area E  Director Jim Gurney agreed  saying: "It's logging that provides the access. If you stop logging, you stop recreationalists."  Gurney also said he had trouble equating how 23 jobs would  be lost through halting the  30-hectare cut. "But 25 jobs or  even 125 jobs don't cut it inJ  comparison to a safe water sup-|  ply," Gurney said.  Citing a 1988 report, Gurneyl  said that increased turbidity \n\  Chapman Creek has already affected water quality. "You logged the hell out of it. I suggest  you should be apologizing, not  asking for more," Gurney said.  Area F Director Jeremy Frith  said we are like a "Rip van  Winkle society" that has just  awakened to major changes.  "The regional district may have  been asleep for a long time and  you loggers may have just been  continuing doing things the way  you always have," Frith said.  "But don't think it's alright  just because that's what your  grandfathers did. We all have to  start putting pressure on  ourselves and on the provincial  government for different attitudes and logging practices,"  he added.  Frith suggested that a  monitoring system be implemented by the SCRD and  Ortner agreed that InterFor  might consider having such an  expert on site provided it was "a  technically trained individual."  Director Wilson warned of  "a classic confrontation" situation if the ministry turns down  the moratorium demand.  Fred Lowenberger, chief  forester for InterFor, then suggested that the SCRD "get an  expert from some independent  body lo critique (InterFor's)  plan."  Gurney responded that such  an idea had been brought up  when the Integrated Water  Management Commission was  formed. "The Ministry of the  Environment folded its tents  and backed off," Gurney said.  "If the ministry had done that  in the first place, we wouldn't  be here today."  when it has been sunned on,  rained on and whipped by the  spring winds on a clothesline. 1  enjoy the screech of the wheels  as I put the line out for the first  time in months.  Then out of the house tumble  those kids, finally happy to go  outside without the continual  prodding "get outside and get  some fresh air". They play all  day long, imagining and making  up games with rocks, pieces of  wood, toy animals, cars, and  yes, GI Joes.  The happiest sound I can  hear on such a day is the  familiar "eeeeeh", giggling and  loud happy laughter as they  swing together in the tire attached with a large rope to the  lowest branch of the big fir tree.

The cost of general government for the district's Langdale  to Egmont jurisdiction is  $763,925. This includes  everything from $100,000 in  salaries for the chairman and  directors (up from 1989's  $60,371 total) to $16,000 in office supplies which is less than  last year's $17,253 cost. Administrative salaries came in at  $261,800.  Some of the largest over all  expenditures concern water and  waste management services.  The waterworks budget is  $2,698,470 with new construction costing $790,000. The West  Sechelt extension alone requires  a flow of $475,000. Getting rid  of waste will actually cost less  with $606,255 for sewer systems  (going down from almost  $800,000 last year), and $23,770  for package sewer plants compared to over $42,000 in 1989.  However, environmental health  or garbage disposal is up almost  $30,000 to $486,630.  The West Howe Sound  Volunteer Fire Department  (WHSVFD) budget got a  $15,000 hike to allow for hiring  of a fire prevention officer.  Total fire prevention costs come  to $371,290 including  WHSVFD and the Roberts  Creek and Halfmoon Bay  forces.  The district's commitment to  recreation is found in the  $159,300 spent on community  parks, $165,060 to West Howe  Sound Recreation and $135,205  for the Pender Harbour Pool.  As well there is $50,000 for Gibsons Library and $59,720  toward public transit to link it  all together. In the Five Year  Capital Budget, Katherine Lake  was the largest individual item  for 1990 with a $615,000 price  tag. The first year pay-out for  the new park is $150,000.  The Economic Development  Commission budget is $199,930  for the year which is up by just  over $86,000. The EDC now  has a full-time secretary, and  other increases are shown in a  'Portable  Toilet  ��� Construction Sites!  !��� Special Events  ��� Outdoor Picnics  ��� Weddings, etc.  Alio:  Septic Tank Pumping  Bonniebrook  Industries  ���6-7004  $25,000 projects/consultants  fee and marketing costs more  than doubled to $28,500.  The bottom line is, of course,  what all these essentials cost the  tax payer. Of the expected $7.5  million revenue, taxation for  1990   is   budgeted   to   be  of  $2,805,808  -  an  increase  $487,911 over last year.  Other expected revenue  sources include $510,000 for  water user's rates, $180,000 in  building and plumbing inspection fees, $113,300 from drafting services and $6000 in tags  and fees for Fido.  Chatelech addition  Final approval plans for the addition to Chatelech Secondary School has been received from the Ministry of Education.  The project is being tendered with a closing date of May 4.  Secretary Treasurer Tim Anderson told trustees at the March  27 board meeting that, so far, most of the bids already received have been substantially above Ihe estimated costs.  On March 15 several parents  and school trustees met with Dr.  Geoff Mills of the Modern  Languages Services Branch of  the Ministry of Education to  discuss the French Immersion  issue. A report of that meeting  was presented by Allison Payne  to the school board on March  27.  According to the report, Mills  told the parents that philosophically the ministry is not  opposed to Middle French Immersion (MFI), because the  belief is that it does not matter  what grade level immersion  begins if functional bilingualism  is the goal. It has been found  that there is no difference in  functional bilingual proficiency  between graduates of Early  French Immersion (EFI) and  Late French Immersion (LFI),  though LFI graduates are not as  fluent orally.  Because programs already in  place (EFI and LFI) need consolidating before new programs  are initiated, provincial funding  will not stretch to cover a third  program, but some federal  money may be available.  In discussing the pros and  cons of EFI and LFI, the report  said that Mills pointed out that  LFI students tend to be the ones  that are already highly successful in school, while EFI  students generally have a wider  range of abilities. He cited  research that indicated it may be  important to develop literacy  skills in English reading before  children develop them in  French. In light of this finding  the ministry is considering the  introduction of English to EFI  Kindergarten students for 30  minutes a day.  Mills went on to say the interplay of the two languages  enhances cognitive ability, and  research with Grades 4,7 and 10  students has shown that EFI  students often outperform those  in the English program.  Mills told parents that he  recommends that smaller  districts of two or three thousand students undertake LFI,  though many smaller districts  have flourishing EFI programs.  Teacher recruitment is a problem, with 37 teachers presently  in training, and 175 needed by  September of 1990.  Mills said that the ministry  has no power to enforce Policy  38 which was intended as a  guideline only. He cited the case  where Saanich took its board to  court and lost.  The report was received by  the board, but not discussed.  Chairperson Carol Adams  reminded the delegation of  parents that the April 10 school  board meeting will be set aside  to deal exclusively with the  French Immersion issue.  Once again there were a  number of letters, including  several from outside the district.  Some expressed support for the  board, while others asked that  the decision to phase out EFI be  reconsidered.  Sargeant Bay  The aniual general meeting of the Sargeant Bay Society  will be held at 10 am on April 14 at the Halfmoon Bay  Elementary School. All members are welcome to attend.

Coast News, April 2,1990  LEISURE  -^  The new group, The Semi-Tones, impressed all and sundry at  the Nikki Weber concert held recently in the Seniors' Hall in  Sechelt.  ���Ruth Formttr photo  A pleasant evening  by Ellen Frith  Miss Marples move over and  Hercule Poirot get out of the  way...Mrs. Piper is in town!  Or at least she's in Roberts  Creek Community Hall and no  murder is too mysterious for her  to solve in her inimitable way.  Not even one where the body  moves around as if it still had a  life of its own.  Mrs. Piper is, of course, the  heroine of the Driftwood  Players' current production entitled Busybody, a murder  mystery written by James Pop-  plewell in that skillful and indisputably English way, and  directed by Nest Lewis.  The script is clever and cute  and the production well cast  and proficient enough to provide the kind of evening's entertainment that keeps a smile  playing around each mouth in  the audience. There are no  bellylaughs but neither are there  any boring bits and it was probably performed pretty much  how Mr. Popplewell would  have wanted it done.  The role of Mrs. Piper fell to  Elphinstone teacher June  Wilson and she was delightful.  Looking very much as if she  had stepped straight out of Cor-  Cable Eleven  onation Street, Wilson's  presence and her droll delivery  of her lines gave the play the  ferfect caricatural foundation.  Thus the other characters, all  recognizable types drawn in  varying degrees of satirical wit,  had a valid stage.  Detective Superintendent  Baxter who blustered and blew  his way around Mrs. Piper's  solid confidence was played  very well by Reg Rowe. He,  along with Wilson and Tim  Anderson playing the sly accountant Robert Westerby,  even had the right accents for  this particular genre of play.  David Fraser with his  angularity and elastic Stan  Laurel-types of expressions, was  just about a perfect comic,  young bobby Constable Goddard, hat and all, while  Chatelech student Laura Russell  as the flirty and vacuous Vickie  was tarted up enough to make a  mother gasp.  Deborah Allain, Karen Bruce  and John John Morris admirably completed the cast.  For anyone who enjoys a  good whodunit with a few unexpected twists, Busybody will be  a pleasure.

Jennings is a  florid, no-nonsense journalist  of the old school. Neither man  is much taken with the other but  personal feelings cannot be considered; they have a job to do.  Jennings and Wilson become  constant, if somewhat reluctant,  companions for the next few  weeks. The reporter interviews  the one-time gang chief exhaustively and makes copious  notes.  He also reads Wilson's many  unpublished manuscripts, discreetly refraining from comment about the awkward syntax  and flowery overwriting. When  Wilson queries him about  publishers, he contrives to  sidestep the issue, saying only  that the books need work.  Eventually Jennings decides  that he has enough material to  do the piece. He thanks Wilson  for his co-operation and heads  back to San Francisco to write  the story.  On his own again, Herb  Wilson's paranoia begins to  return. Twice, on downtown  streets, he thinks he spots half-  remembered hoods from the old  safecracking days. The possibility of an unwelcome and  perhaps, fatal confrontation,  begins to obsess him. The country is definitely a safer place to  be than the city. Accordingly,  he heads up coast again, this  time to Saltspring Island, purchases a piece of property on  the north end and builds  another home.  In mid-1949, Dean Jennings'  series of articles begin to appear  in ColHers. The five-part serial  concentrates almost entirely on  Wilson's unique criminal  career. Couched in Jennings'  best hard-boiled prose and full  of raunchy underworld lingo, it  creates a minor sensation.  A whole new generation of  readers who have never heard of  the King of the Safecrackers,  are suddenly exposed to his  remarkable story. Almost overnight, Herb Wilson becomes a  celebrity, in demand for lectures  and talk shows.  Wilson is delighted by all the  attention. It overrides his fear  of meeting vengeful or money  seeking gangsters from the past.  He exchanges his Saltspring  Island property and home for a  store on West 10th Avenue in  Vancouver, near the university.  Here he sets up a variety  operation, similar to the  business he had run in  Australia. His new found  notoriety only serves to attract  customers. The store prospers.  Wilson's proximity to the  UBC campus allows him easy  access to the university. He  often drives there to wander the  grounds, a slight elderly figure,  moving a bit incongruously  among thousands of fresh-faced  young students.  He has always been fascinated by institutions of higher  learning. He recalls wryly how  Herb Cox, Little Benny and he  had strolled the Grove of  Academe at Harvard many  years before. Their purpose  then had been anything but  academic. But those larcenous  days are far behind him. He is  here strictly to get a bit of exercise and soak up the atmosphere.  To be continued...

Low clouds blur the  horizon so sea and sky merge  into an endless gray. An eagle  cruises past the picture window,  its talons reaching to settle into  a towering cedar.  Space is ample throughout  the interior of the Brandreth  home as well. In the den a black  baby grand piano shines in the  corner, surrounded by floor to  ceiling bookcases. A cavernous  gray stone fireplace beckons  from the living room and the  kitchen is dominated by a  granite cooking island complete  with stove.  But Monique Brandreth  works in a world where tea sets  fit onto the top of a Loony coin  and a vase could sit inside a  thimble. She is a miniaturist  who paints on porcelain and in  two years, the Sunshine Coast  resident has gained fame for her  reproductions of traditional  styles.  "My husband says 1 have two  fetishes," Monique said in her  throaty French accent. "Porcelain and bathrooms." And it  was that combination that sent  her into the field of miniatures.  She'd had a lifelong appreciation of the arts and was intrigued by doll house collecting.  Her husband, Harold, had  bought her a doll home kit to  make a Victorian style mansion.  "Well, I always liked the  ginger bread look of Victorian  houses, but I couldn't stand the  furniture of that time," Monique said, so she couldn't get enthusiastic about the project.  Since the 18th Century is  Monique's 'special love',  Harold started to design a  miniature of a French style  house of that era and Monique  began to seek out all the furnishings to fill it.  "Anything you can buy at the  local building store, you can get  in miniature," said Harold and  brought out a supply catalogue  for collectors. Page after page  showed siding, flooring, wallpaper, windows, doors...all at a  one to one scale...one inch  equals one foot.  Harold pointed to a page  with electrical outlets and light  switch covers. "Some people  even have the electricity hooked  in, so everything has to actually  work," he explained.  Authenticity is everything in  the world of miniatures. A col  lectors' magazine shows one artist's finished commission of a  replica of the study in the  Palace of Versailles, right down  to the intricate woodwork of the  floor.  Furniture must not only look  authentic, but also must be  'usable'. That desk the size of a  VCR remote must have drawers  that open, the aimond-size lamp  must light up (and yes, you can  buy bulbs that tiny).  England and France have a  long tradition of miniature collecting and today the United  States is a major player accor.  ding to the Brandreths. But,  there was one area that had  largely been ignored in doll-  sized houses everywhere.  "People didn't pay much attention to bathrooms," Mon-  Some of the exquisite miniature work of Monique Brandreth  which will be on display at the Wharf Restaurant next Sunday.  (See story). -Cryl Worde- photo  Gardening Notes  April a busy month  SHOP  LOCALLY  ���que laughed. So she embarked  on her journey into porcelain by  designing miniature bathtubs  and wash stands. From there  she also ventured into plate  reproductions, vases, lamps and  tea sets.  She duplicates Dresden,  Limoge and French formal and  country patterns in her painting.  "I can't cram everything onto  such a space so I ha' e to take  the spirit of the piece," she said.  A floral pattern curls around a  plate the size of a quarter, every  rose and leaf twining in perfect  detail.  Each piece is unique and  Monique estimates she can  complete one per day on  average. But then there's the  'more complex' ones such as a  vase with a woman's portrait  painted on one side. "It took  me about three hours to do just  four dots," she said, holding  the delicate piece under a giant  magnifying lens to point out the  two white dabs that give the  woman's eyes a life-like light  and the pinpoints of red that  define the smile of the upper  and lower lips.  Monique's joie de vivre and  expressive manner contrast with  her obvious ability to create  such intricate art. "Yes, she is a  very impatient person by  temperament," agreed her husband. "But she's also a perfectionist and that's what takes  over in her work."  As an artisan in the International Guild of Miniaturists,  Monique will take part in the  annual show in New York at the  end of April. But her work will  also be on display for local eyes  next weekend during regular  Brunch hours at the Wharf  Restaurant in Davis Bay on  Sunday, April 8.

April is a busy month, bringing us fluctuating temperatures  and frosts, and balmy spring  weather too. Making a list of  jobs to be done is helpful. These  could include: General cleanup  of all unwanted refuse lying  around; digging; liming;  vegetable plots, if not already  done; have a ph test of soil from  two growing areas; sieving compost heaps for the rich humus  our friendly worms have made  for us.  When making this year's  plan, remember to rotate crops,  use companion planting if  possible, or try making raised  beds approximately three feet  by four feet, which make them  easily accessible with a path all  around.  All cool-loving vegetables can  be planted now. If in doubt,  Police news  RCMP GIBSONS  Between February 1 and  March 24, there were 23 break-  ins of residences in the Gibsons  to Langdale area reported to the  RCMP.  In over half of these occurrences, entry was gained  through unlocked doors and  windows, often while the  residents were in bed asleep.  Items stolen were cash,  jewellery, credit cards, inden-  tification papers, wallets and  purses, VCR's, chainsaws,  tools, radios, walkmans,  alcohol and other household  goods.  There have been some  unlawful entry incidents in  businesses and storage  buildings. Several of these offences have been solved but  many are still being investigated.  A reminder: secure your windows and doors.  The RCMP report for the  month of March: Six impaired  driving charges and thirteen  24-hour suspensions.  In Gibsons and Roberts  Creek many residents are vexed  by incidents of willful damage  to property. Private mail boxes  at driveway entrances have been  smashed, car paint scratched.  Police request that even the  most minor damage be reported  to them immediately. All information is important.  Bicycles, bicycles! Twenty of  them clutter the storage room in  the RCMP offices. Mountain  bikes and 18-speed down to  single speed. One has just been  turned in - a CCM worth about  $300. Surely some of you know  if you have lost a bicycle.  your local garden centre will advise.  The strawberries named  'Selva' which produce abundantly are available now locally.  If planting bushes, shrubs,  trees for landscaping, ask  yourself how tall will they grow,  before you plant. It saves errors  being made.  It's time also for locating our  'Pacific giant' or Russian  sunflower seeds so that the  young folk can enter our  Largest Sunflower Contest  which begins any time this  month. Let's encourage the  children from three years and  up to understand nature.  The Sechelt Garden Club will  be meeting on Wednesday,  April 4 at 7:30 pm in St. Hilda's  Hall and a garden forum will be  held. New members and guests  welcome.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  TomI  (4  (keCoofti  Have you ever had a day start out knowing you had a thousand things to do and not enough time? 1 suppose we all have,  but I tried to look at the bright side of things and earnestly set  out on my venture.  In the haste of my day I remembered I was supposed to  make reservations for my friend and I to dine out. We were  going out to celebrate his accomplishment of moving to the  Sunshine Coast.  I'd previously dined at Andy's Restaurant and chose to  make reservations knowing the quality of service I had encountered in the past. A delightful evening we both knew  would endure.  My friend ordered the steak and lobster duet served with a  salad or soup of the day, vegetables, rice or baked potato and  garlic bread. My choice was the steak Teriyaki with the same  variety. We both chose salad with the house Italian dressing. I  couldn't resist, neither could my friend, baked potatoes with  all the fixings. Our steaks were done perfectly medium. To  make our meal complete we ordered a side dish of sauteed  mushrooms.  Conversation was limited to "Mnun...and, this is wonderful." We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent and we'll be back.  My friend was overwhelmed to receive such a succulent  dinner and we decided that an evening of fine food, conversation aiid relaxation it Andy's ResUnuam was the perfect way  to eliminate the stress of the day.

Heart work  On Friday, March 16 relay  teams at West Sechelt Elementary took (urns skipping for  three hours in a Jump-off Event  to raise money for the BC and  Yukon Heart Foundation.  It's all part of Jump Rope  For Heart, a unique educational  program promoting cardiovascular fitness through skipping.  Students are introduced to skipping in their PE classes, where  they learn new tricks and techniques as well as general  knowledge of heart health.  For the Jump-off, students  collected pledges from the community for the number of  minutes their team will jump.  The money they raised will fund  research to battle Canada's  number one killer - heart  disease.  In return, participants are  eligible for prizes such as ropes,  T-shirts, gym bags, etc. The  school also benefits by receiving  instructional materials, a class  set of ropes and five per cent of  the net revenue from the event.  West Sechelt Elementary  thanks all those students who  took part in our tremendous  afternoon of skipping and also  thanks those people who kindly  donated or pledged our students  in our Jump-off.

One of the developments  which changed the game a lot  was the introduction of artificial  ice. It was likely this development more than any other that  allowed the slide delivery to take  placed Instead of the keen ice  created by an ice plant, the  natural ice was often frosty on  cold days, soggy on warm days  and varied in temperature every  day.  In those kinds of conditions,  it was not easy to develop a nice  consistent slide. There was also  a rule in those early days that required the rock to be delivered  from the hack.  According to Watson, there  was long and bitter debate  about changing that rule. With  the change of the rule it became  legal to slide as far as one could  possibly propel oneself. Some  curlers could push out of the  hack sufficiently hard to propel  themselves from one end of the  ice to the other, where finally  they set the rock down where  they wanted it to come to rest.  Because of this possibility,  the rule that a rock must be  released before the curler reached the hog line was introduced,  allowing the curler to continue  on with sliding so long as the  rock was released. In competition play, this rule is now rigidly  enforced, a referee often sitting  at the hog-line to ensure the  rock has left the curlers hand  before they reach the hog-line.  Next week on Wednesday,  April 4 at 8 pm we have our annual election of officers. The  whole membership is asked to  attend to elect our new slate for  next year. This meeting is only  one of two during the whole  year so please attend. There are  openings for three directors for  a two year term, two directors  for a one year term as well as  president, vice president,  secretary and treasurer.  So far we have 19 people running for these 9 positions and  five of the old executives have  agreed to run again. I am impressed to see so many willing  workers in the club. It is what  makes the Gibsons Winter Club  such a vibrant part of our community.  Men's  Hockey  by Mark Benson  Wakefield earned a 1 to 0  lead in the best of five finals by  defeating the Gilligans Flyers 5  to 2 last week in Men's Hockey  Playoffs.  Gilligans was ahead 2 to 1 at  the end of one period of play,  but Wakefield got back on top 4  to 2 by the end of the second.  Wakefield's Rory Walker put  his team up 5 to 2 part way into  the final period and steady goal  tending by Danny Hemstalk  assured the key win. Darren  Kohuch with a pair plus Gary  Benner and Mike Yarrow also  scored goals for Wakefield.  Jason Sawchuck replied with  a pair of goals for the Flyers.  Wakefield went up 2 to 0 in  the best of five playoffs by out-  scoring Gilligans Flyers 11 to 8  in a wild shootout last week. It  was 3 to 3 at the end of the first  and 6 to 5 for Wakefield  heading into the final period.  Wakefield's Kelly Cousins led  the onslaught with four goals  while Rory Walker and Dave  Schindell each chipped in a pair.  Claude Charleton, Mike Yarrow and Teddy Brackett also  scored.  Ryan Paul and Bill Trowsdell  were the big shooters for  Gilligans with a hat trick each.  Wade Fisher and Jason  Sawchuck also scored for the  Flyers.  Game three of the playoffs  was anyone's game. The game  was deadlocked at 1 to 1 at the  end of one period of play.  Gilligans led 5 to 4 going into  the room after two completed  periods on pairs of goals by Bill  Trowsdell and Ryan Paul.  Wade Fisher also scored for the  Flyers.  Mike Yarrow had scored a  pair of goals for Wakefield to  this point in the game while Kelly Cousins and Claude Charleton had also scored.  Rory Walker tied the game  for Wakefield at 5 to 5 then  Dave Schindell got the game  winner. Final outcome,  Wakefield 6, Gilligans 5.

Peace Committee hears of El Salvador  Dog Obedience (lasses  Loral residents Terry Drumel  and Jay Hamburger told the  story of their participation with  "The Caravan to Aid El  Salvador", last Monday evening March 12, at the Sunshine  Coast Peace Meeting held at  Roberts Creek Elementary  School.  The meeting was an interesting and informative "eye  opener" as to the "heartbreaking" situation that exists in El  Salvador.  The government in El  Salvador is supplying no help to  its people in need and most  Humanitarian Aid is confiscated before it reaches the  people. The Caravan proposed  to help by bringing in food,  medicine, clothing and tools to  the Salvadoreans.  As well as an effective gesture  in tangible assistance, this was  also a symbolic gesture to show  the people of El Salvador that  others do care.  The Caravan was told by  Washington to deny their own  existence. They were denied entry into El Salvador and they  were denied assistance in their  curtailed attempts to enter El  Salvador, by the US Embassy.  They were questioned by the  FBI, labelled as subsersives.. of  fered bribes, and endured tense  and oppressive situations.  They were, though, welcomed with love by the Salvadorean  people and thanked for their efforts and concern.  A video was shown at the  meeting, and portrayed that  although  the  people  of El  Salvador have a history of  repression, poverty, sickness  and death, they deny the  domination of war and poverty,  are tired of oppression, desire a  better way of life, show dignity,  bravery and strength, express an  optimism as to the future, and  understand the amount of work  that will be involved in  reconstruction and achieving a  country that is free.

They hope to purchase Jaws of Life equipment  eventually. ���Ann Cook photo  by Rose Nicholson  Plans for a motel near the  Lighthouse Pub on Wharf  Road in Sechelt will require  rezoning from Commercial 4  (C4) to Commercial 3 (C3). C4  zoning provides for light industrial use and could include  machine shops, while C3 would  permit a mixture of office accommodation, residential and  tourist accommodation.  At the March 19 planning  meeting of the District of  Sechelt Devlopment and Community Services Committee,  property owner Phil Kevil  outlined his plans to build a 30  to 40-unit two storey motel on  the water side of Wharf Road,  with parking on both the motel  property and on another property across the road. Kevil told  committee members that he will  be entering into a legal agreement with residents near the extra'parking lot to ensure that  there will be no building on that  site that would obscure their  view of the water.  "That area has developed into a residential section," commented Committee Chairman  Bob Wilson. "A C4 zoning  would permit industrial uses  does not seem appropriate."

Coast News, April 2,1990  Development changes asked for  Browning's Edge proposal  by Rut* Nkhoboa  The new developers of  Browning's Edge Retirement  Village, between Browning  Road and Highway 101 in  Sechelt, are asking that Sechelt  Council waive certain sidewalk  and lighting requirements for  the project.  Municipal By-Law 30, passed  after the original plans for the  property were drawn up by the  previous owners, requires storm  drains, curbs and sidewalks on  both sides of a road within a  development; and street lights,  curbs, sidewalks and bicycle  paths along the highway frontage.  In addition, Department of  Highway regulations call for a  four lane turn-off on Highway  101 at the Tyson Road entrance  to the development.  At a Planning Committee  meeting on March 27, Bill  Enefer, spokesman for the  developers, asked for approval  of plans to put sidewalks on only one side of the road within  the   development,   and   to  eliminate the sidewalks and  street lights required by By-Law  30 for the approximately 500  yards that the development  fronts on the highway.  Enefer told the committee  that the Department of  Highways are not insisting on  widening that portion of the  highway to four lanes, and will  be satisfied with a left hand turning lane at the entrance to the  development at Tyson Road.  The approximately $5 million  phase one plans call for building  50 units (12 less than original  plans) at the west corner of the  property, using about one third  of the 31-acre parcel. A proposal to change the zoning to  R4A would permit a density  equivalent to R2, which would  enable cluster development,  rather than individual lots. The  undeveloped portion of the property is to revert to an Rl zoning.  A rock bluff which is part of  the nine acres and was included  in the building plans of the  previous owners, will now be  left as a park area.  ��  Guts* Where  usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

Letters to the Editor  Support for Coast Homemakers  Editor's Note: The foUowing  s received for publication.  The Honourable Peter Dueck,  Minister of Social Services  and Housing,  Legislative Building,  Victoria, BC.  Dear Mr. Dueck,  I am writing to express my  support for the striking  homemakers of the Sunshine  Coast Home Support Society.  For a long time now, 1 have  been aware of the very low  wages they are getting.' I con  sider it a scandal that these  women, many of whom are  single parents with dependents  to support and childcare costs,  are not only asked to work for  as little as SS. 10 an hour, but  are asked to use their own  vehicles to transport their clients  on various errands and to appointments.  When the car (probably not a  good one to begin with, at that  wage) breaks down how does  the government expect the home  support worker to be able to af  ford to repair it on such a low  income? Or does the government expect to fire the  homemaker when her car wears  out and hire someone whose car  is still limping along?  These women provide a  valuable service which their  clients desparately need. How  come so many jobs that involve  caring for the basic needs of  human beings that cannot care  for themselves (eg. childcare  workers, those who work with  the mentally handicapped, etc.)  Liberty must have defenders  Editor:  It's nice to see the letter from  the Farewell and Robinson  families thanking the RCMP  Public Complaints Commission  for hearing their concerns.  Much thanks and congratulations must go to Farewell and  Robinson themselves.  The lesson of history is that  the level of liberty in any land  tends to sink to that accorded its  most unpopular minority. The  right of every member of this  community to be treated according to the fundamental principles of justice is wrapped up in  the same bundle with those of  Donald Robinson,  No one who believes in legal  procedure and equal justice  could fail to be alarmed by the  allegations.  The abridgement of Charter  of Rights guarantees has not  been caused by defects in the  principles, but by the failure  and unwillingness of individual  citizens, private organizations  and governmental authorities to  defend and uphold those  guarantees. Words have no  reality inscribed on fading par-  are barely paid a living wage?  Society's priorities must be all  wrong.  Yet many of the people  helped by the homemakers, and  many of their relatives, are  voters who would like to see this  government straighten its  priorities. After all, is it not  cheaper for the government to  pay the homemakers a living  wage than it is to put people  who cannot care for themselves  in institutions?  Anne Miles  chment.  They exist only to the degree  that they are asserted by the  courageous actions of people  like Bev Farewell and Don  Robinson.  R. Bourque.

This Bylaw may be cited as "Zoning Amendment  No. 555-29,1989.  3.

Those people are doing a very  conscientious job in keeping  seniors in their homes, which is  much more economical than  having them full time in a care  home.  I have nothing but praise for  the way these ladies handle very  difficult situations and feel that  their wage scale is not commensurate to the responsible and  caring services they provide.  According to the news, the  Social Credit Party is preparing  for the next provincial election  and 1 should think that instead  of trying to dazzle us with buzz  words and spending huge  amounts of our money to tell us  how wonderful they are, they  should put some money where  their mouth is and pay a living  wage to these people who are  doing excellent work on the  government's behalf.  Actions speak louder than  words.  Lome B. Blain  Inappropriate  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Board of School Trustees,  School District No. 46  Box 220, Gibsons, BC  Dear Trustees:  In view of the current turmoil  caused by the school board's  decision to scrap the Early  French Immersion program, I  call on the board to immediately  ban APEC members from  presenting at future school  board meetings. -      3  If you refuse to take this action, you will be directly linked  to APEC whether you like it or  not.  Perhaps in your naivete, you  have overlooked the fact that  you are already heavily influenced by Jacob Knaus. How  could you ignore this man when  he bombards the school board  office with his literature on  almost a daily basis?  For a man who has raised his  Fable  Editor:  The early French Immersion  baby has been stolen by a  jealous 'mother' APEC. The  legitimate mother of the program Mrs. Canadian Parents  for French has asked the school  board to help get her baby back.  The school board has offered  to cut the baby in half in hopes  of pleasing both mothers equally. 'Mother' APEC isn't entirely pleased but says she can live  with her half baby. Mom CPF  is tearful, horrified, in a panic.  She knows that her baby cannot  live without its other half.  It is time the school board  behaved like a good King  Solomon and returned the  whole baby to its rightful  mother.  Roger Lagasse  Sechelt, BC  Thanks  Editor:  The War Amputations of  Canada and its Child Amputee  (CHAMP) program would like  to thank the Coast News lor its  December 18 article on Champ  Roxanne Wiseman and our  1989 British Columbia  CHAMP Seminar.

Quite frankly, the board has  a responsibility to this community to formally and publicly  distance itself from APEC immediately to help eliminate the  racist overtones in the French  Immersion issue.
