 ] victoria^) legates herbicide agreement    LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY      81.1          Parliament Buildings,    Thl VICTORIA, B.C. attempt to  keep i V8V 1X4 'vegetation  from -Dunsmuir  Trans  At a previous meeting held November 14 in the regional board  offices, Hydro representatives made it clear that they felt  obliged to notify the regional board only after final approval of  any application for a permit to use pesticides. The board would  then have a IS dav period in which to present objections to the  granting of the permit to the Appeal Board of the Pesticide Board  of the Ministry of the Environment.  At the November 14 meeting both Hydro and the SCRD  agreed to communicate separately with the Pesticide Control  Board, requesting that copies of all applications be forwarded to  the regional board upon receipt so time could be allotted for  meaningful input from all parties concerned.  At last Thursday night's meeting the board received a letter  from Cheekeye-Dunsmuir Project Manager, R.G. Foxall which  indicated that Hydro has been in contact with the Pesticide  Control Board and decided to follow their procedure, which  allows for the board to be notified only after the permit is  granted. In his letter, Mr. Foxall states: "I discussed this matter  on November 28, 1980 with Bayne Vance of the Pesticide Board  who informed me that their operating procedures are set by  legislation which provides for a period of appeal after an  application is approved, but does not permit the distribution of  applications to others during the review period. He does not  consider it likely that these procedures will be changed.''  The letter ends with a recommendation that the board contact  Mr. Vance, Administrator of the Pesticide Control Board,  directly for further information.  Directors of the regional board were less than pleased by the  implications of Mr. Foxall's letter. Area A Director Joe  Harrison pointed out that the board is "right back where it  started" with Hydro on the issue of herbicide application.  "Hydro only tells us after they get the permit; "That isn't  exactly what we wanted," Harrison commented drily.  Area C Director Charles Lee pointed out, "On the afternoon  of the meeting they assured us that we would know. We were  adamant on that point," Lee said.  "The Pesticides Board obviously considers it their right to  consider these applications without any public input," said Area  D Director Harry Almond. Almond recommended that the  board contact the Pesticide Control Board and find out if there is  some reason why these applications are not for public discussion  before decisions are made.  Director Harrison, who was bitterly critical of the Pesticide  Control Board's appeal procedure, volunteered to contact Mr.  Vance and follow up on Director Harrison's recommendation.  The Coast News was unable to contact Mr. Vance, but spoke  instead with Dr. Kobylnyk, who replaces Vance as Administrator of the Pesticide Control Board next week.  Dr. Kobylnyk outlined the permit application procedure,  which takes approximately two months, during which the  Pesticide Control Board notifies various other provincial and  federal ministries of the application, including the Ministries of  Forests, Agriculture, Health and Welfare, the Ministry of the  Environment's Fish and Wildlife Branch and Environment  Canada, and requests comment.  "If we notified the public before, it could take year," Kobylnyk  said.  One of Director Harrisons sharpest criticisms of the system at  Thursday's meeting was that the "closed door" review of  applications for permits and the brief IS day appeal period that  follows the granting of a permit effectively stymies the  mobilization of the public for political action.  Harrison was also critical of the makeup of the Appeal Board,  pointing out that not a single member of the general public sits  on the board, which is made up exclusively, Harrison said, "of  users or former employees of the chemical industry."  Dr. Kobylnyk admitted that the Appeal Board is made up of  nine "technically oriented people" and also pointed out that the  Appeal Board has no mandate to rule on the possible deleterious  effects of a pesticide or herbicide, but only on the exact  conditions specified by the permit application.  "It isn't a perfect system," Kobylnyk said, "but it is the best we  have and unique in North America.'' Kobylnyk said he welcomes  suggestions as to how the system and the make-up of the appeal  board could be improved.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  Delivered to every address on the Coast  January 13, 1981  Volume 35, Number 2  Fireball expansion  A public meeting will be held in the Welcome Beach  Community Hall on Redrooffs Road on Sunday, January  IK at 2:00 pm. to discuss the proposed purchase of land for  the expansion of the Halfmoon Bay firehall.  Purchase price of the proposed lot is $28,000, and with  prevailing interest rates of 18%, a loan of that amount  amortized over five years would require yearly payments of  S8.S30.00. Based on the 1980 assessment, a taxation of 1.327  mills would be required to cover payments on the loan.  The cost to the homeowner, assuming a house and  property with an actual market value of $75,000 and a 1981  assessed value of 11% or $8,250, would be an estimated  $10.95 per year or .91c per month.  Regional snag  Having decided to go it alone with its new office building,  the Sunshine Coast Regional District may have run up  against another snag.  At Thursday night's meeting the board decided to  approach the Provincial government with regard to the  financing of the building, now estimated to cost, in the  neighbourhood1 of $375,000.  During the discussion, Sechelt Alderman/Area G  Director Charles Lee pointed out that the adopted Sechelt  Community Plan specifies no further building on the sewage  treatment plant site proposed for the new office building.  The board decided to cross that bridge when they come to  it and voted to approach the government with regard to the  financing of the project.  Koch to Victoria  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch is scheduled to attend a  Provincial Emergency Program conference in Victoria on  January 26.  The Mayor intends to stay in Victoria an extra day  following the conference in order to meet with Provincial  government officials for discussions with reference to  amalgamation.  Mayor Koch hopes that these meetings will pave the way  for fast and efficient progress toward extension of Sechelt  Village boundaries and amalgamation procedures.  GVFD Elections  Gibsons Fire Department elections were held at the hall  recently with the following results.  Carl Horner retired as Chief and Mel Buckmaster was  elected to take his place while Brian Knowles was elected  Deputy Chief.  Bob Blakeman and Stan Stubbs were elected Captains  and Randy Rodrigue and John Hall Lieutenants. New  Secretary is Stan Stubbs and new training officer is Cliff  Mahlman.  Covenant removal?  A second item on the agenda for discussion at a public  meeting to be held at the Welcome Beach Community Hall  on Sunday January 18, will be the proposed lifting of a  restrictive covenant applied to a property adjacent to the  Jolly Roger Inn.  The property, now owned by the Jolly Roger Inn Ltd., is  currently zoned Commercial 2L, but a convenant restricts  the use of t he land to "twenty parking spaces." The covenant  was originally established when a marina was to have been  based from the property but residents objected to upland  commercial development.  The present owners of the property have applied for a  lifting of the covenant, which would give the property full C  2L zoning.  David Macdonald, one of the owners of the property, told  the regional board at Thursday night's meeting that it was  "premature" to speculate on the proposed use of the  property if the covenant is lifted, though he stated that it  would be in keeping with the present development.  On the recommendation of Area B Director Peggy  Connor, the board decided to put the question to the public  meeting, though in fact the board has the power to lift the  covenant without doing so.  Directors Almond and Harrison were adamant that the  owners request amounts to a change of zoning and as such  should go before the public.  Sechelt Alderman Brian Stelck, a partner in the Jolly  Roger Inn Ltd., absented himself during the discussion.  The twisting 101 highway claimed another semi-trailer victim last week. This truck ended on the ditch on the narrow piece of  highway between Granthams and Gibsons. Don u��an pnoio.  In Roberts Creek and Egmont  CPR may get thousands of acres  MLA Don Lockstead is investigating reports of major land  transactions on the Sunshine Coast in connection with the  provincial government's B.C. Place project on Fabe Creek in  Vancouver.  "Negotiations between the government and the CPR Pacific  Logging Division and the CPR-owned Marathon Realty are  definitely taking place," said Lockstead, "we just don't know what  stage they have reached."  Believed to be involved is about 2,500 acres of Crown land in  Roberts Creek and as much or more Crown land on both sides of  the Sechelt Inlet in the Skookumchuck area near Egmont. ,  Lockstead said that if the reports were true they represented  another giveaway by the provincial government. "There's timber  on the land which is 90 years old and ripe for logging," said  Lockstead.  Lockstead estimated that the land represented $100 million in  timber and real estate values.  Regional Director Harry Almond of Roberts Creek strongly  objected to the proposed land transfer.  "I assume that what is involved is Crown land which had been  intended for logging leases for local people. Now the money that  the land will yield will go right out the area," said Almond.  In Area A which contains most of the land in question, Director  Joe Harrison also expressed a sense of outrage about the reported  negotiations.  "It's bloody obscene," said Harrison. "They have bartered what  was intended to be a wilderness provincial park and which will  now be another playground for the rich."  MLA Lockstead expects to be in a position to reveal the areas  involved and lot numbers early this week.  For 'Rocky' Mountain  Lee demands action  Area C Director Charles Lee served notice of motion last  Thursday evening at the meeting of the regional board, to the  effect that the Chairman of the Public Utilities Committee  "promptly address himself to the concerns of a Mr. Mountain."  Mr. Lee, as well as several regional board employees and other  government employees, have been the target of Mr. Mountain's  wrath since last fall, when a regional board works crew operating  in the area of Husdon Creek, accidentally collapsed and earth and  wooden bridge into the stream from which Mr. Mountain takes  his household water.  The site was inspected by Fisheries officers, since salmon were  spawning in the stream at the time, and regional district crews  reconstructed the bridge. In the interval, however, silt damaged  Mr. Mountain's water-system and a washing machine, in  particular.  Mr. Mountain accordingly sent the bill for repairs to the  washing machine and a letter of complaint to the board, claiming  that since he was not advised the crew would be working in the  area, it was not his fault the washing machine had been damaged.  The board did not reply formally to Mr. Mountain at that time,  but deputized Regional District Works Superintendant Gordon  Dixon to speak with MM and explain that the board did not  consider itself responsible for the damage.  "I recall the incident and it was my understanding that the  matter was resolved," PUC Chairman Jim Gurney said at  Thursday night's board meeting, following Director Lee's notice  of motion.  "I'm reluctant to accept responsibility for this in case we set a  precedent by implication," Gurney said.  "We very glibly say it's not our responsibility," Director Lee  replied, "But I'm not sure we're not missing the point. It certainly  hasn't solved my problem."  Director Lee pointed out that Mr. Mountain has apparently  sent registered correspondence to the board wMch he, as the araea  Director concerned, has never seen.  Director Almond admitted that "perhaps the board made a  mistake in not writing officially" to Mr. Mountain. Almond  recommended, after some discussion, that the board write to Mr.  Mountain informing him that the board has reconsidered his  request, found itself not responsible for his washing machine, and  apologizes for not replying officially when the initial complaint  was made.  Vander Zalm on amalgamation  In a letter to the Village of Sechelt, Provincial Minister of  Municipal Affairs, Bill Vander Zalm has replied to a Council  resolution relative to the possible amalgamation of the Village  with a portion of Electoral Area C of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  The Minister states that the financial information submitted by  the Village is essentially correct and in keeping with the Provincial  Government Restructure Program. "However", he says, "before  committing the Ministry's time and staff to a possible restructure  in the Sechelt area, it will be necessry for consideration to be given  to more clearly defining what should comprise an expanded  Sechelt if restructive is to proceed. While the area being proposed  is generally acceptable in most respects, it is perhaps somewhat  smaller in an urban sense, than the area which should be  considered if Sechelt is to be reincorporated as either an expanded  Village or a small distriu municipality. In general, I would see a  restructured Sechelt municipality encompassing much of the area  within the bounds of Wakefield Creek to Snake Bay and from  Four Mile Point to the East Wilson Creek area. As you will  appreciate, this includes part of Electoral Area B and a much  smaller undeveloped area than that portion of Electoral Area C  referred to in Director Lee's proposal."  There is a meeting planned on the 21st of this month between  Sechelt Council and a Provincial Government representative  regarding the next steps necessary in the process of drawing up  amalgamation proposals acceptable to both parties.  Moratorium on foreshore leases  Minister of Lands, Parks and Housing, James Chabot, has  announced a four month moratorium on the granting of foreshore  lease applications in the Pender Harbour area.  Area A Director Joe Harrison informed the regional board of  the moratorium at Thursday night's board meeting, following an  interview on CBC Radio that morning in which he outlined local  concerns over the alienation of the foreshore which have resulted  in the moratorium.  During the four month "cooling off" period, Ministry staff will  prepare a complete analysis of existing and potential conflicts  arising from the use of the foreshore and draw up proposals in an  attempt to resolve them.  One proposal Chabot has already suggested, would see the  Provincial government issue a "blanket lease" to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District for all of the foreshore of Pender  Harbour and Bargain Harbour.  A Harbour's Board or committee would then be formed to  regulate the use of the foreshore. Such a board or committee  would be elected locally, along the lines of a water board in a  Water Improvement District, with an ex-officio member from the  Lands Branch sitting in an advisory capacity.  Harrison endorsed Chabot's proposal, pointing out that "the  water is 'he main street of Pender Harbour" and that a locally  elected board would ensure that decisions about the use of the  water "would be made by those who are directly affected; the  people of the area."  Harrison said that such a board would be charged to meet the  needs of the upland and business community as well as the owners  of waterfront property.  If Chabot's proposal is implemented, the Pender Harbour and  Bargain Harbour area would be a "test area", Harrison said, for  other coastal areas in British Columbia.  ON THE INSIDE...

An avalanche in the Austrian Alps  can happen to any world traveller, one  supposes. Let's not dwell on the questionable judgement which combines skiing  holidays with international diplomacy.  Let's spare ourselves the observations that  The Great Dilletante tripped, again, over  his own essential frivolity as he endeavoured to cut a figure on the world's stage.  Enough, let us pass on.  It is ironic that from Africa comes the  perfect soubriquet for Canada's Prime  Minister. 'The Yesterday Man' is what  Trudeau was ironically termed. It was a  reference, of course, to the fact that few  political leaders made the strong initial  mpression that Trudeau did on the world  stage When, in 1968 he was elected  ipcaking of The Jusi Society, national and  global, he was an impressive and a  beguiling figure.  Sadly Pierre Eliot Trudeau has not  fulfilled the early evident promise. In  Canada, on the heels of the 100th birthday  party he came to power seemingly  embodying everything that one could wish  in a new type of forward-looking leader.  Apparently on the Commonwealth  councils he was also regarded as something  of a fresh and invigorating breeze.  Sadly, he has lost his credibility at home  and abroad and one looks back a dozen  years at the Trudeaumania which swept  him into office and compare that national  exuberance and high hopes with the  divided and bitter and forlorn country he  leads today and can only agree with the  African assessment. Pierre Eliot Trudeau���the Yesterday Man.  It is Canada's misfortune that at the  present time he is also the Today Man and  that there is no Future Man in sight to lead  and embody the decent aspirations of the  country.  1  Another giant giveaway  Should we be grateful that our little part  of the Sunshine Coast is to play a part in  the dramatic schemes of the Social Credit  government? Apparently some complicated land transfers between the  provincial government and CPR and its  subsidiaries are to take place involving the  exchange of mountain tops on Vancouver  Island for rich residential, waterfront, and  timber lands in Roberts Creek and around  the Sechelt Inlet. All of this to be part of  the monument that Bennett intends to  build in the long-standing Bennett  tradition on False Creek on land held by  the CPR.  Local representatives, somewhat stunned by the scale of the land transfers have  spoken of the loss of some of the finest  recreation land in the province, of the loss  of winter shows for local small logging  outfits. MLA Don Lockstead conservatively estimates the land deal to be a J100  million giveaway.  Later this week we will learn the details  and we invite local representatives of the  Social Credit party to make full use of  these pages to explain to the residents of  the Sunshine Coast the wisdom of the land  deal. Failing receipt of suchexplanations it  would appear to be another debacle to add  to a sorry governmental record. It is finally  not this government's philosophy one  objects to. It is its stupidity.  Our provincial Frankenstein  Is anyone surprised that it now turns out  that even B.C. Hydro's assurances about  the use of pesticides on that portion of the  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power line which  crosses the Sunshine Coast have proved to  be worthless? From the very beginning in  mis as in every other recent power  development the Power Corporation has  swept cynically to its predetermined goal  with only the scantiest nod in the direction  of the public concerns its grandiose actions  cause.  Of course, it is reversing direction on the  question of pesticide use and involvement  of the regional board in decisions leading  to such use. B.C. Hydro, at best, is an  arrogant,  corrupt,  and  self-seeking  collection of highly paid engineers who  must continue to have massive projects or  find themselves out of work. All over the  province it rides roughshod over the  wishes and the fears of the people. Hydro  knows best, the executives of the  corporation seem to assume.  If that weren't sufficiently, chillingly  reminiscent of George Orwell's 1984 we  have the Pesticide Control Branch which  instead of controlling the use of possibly  dangerous chemicals is in fact the licensing  bureau that such groups as B.C. Hydro-use  to justify their use of the chemicals. Only a  change of government can deliver us from  this Frankenstein masquerading as a  Public Utility.  %  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  >   Ifef^  FIVE YEARS AGO  There is public uproar over the  Social Credit government's announcement that ICBC rates would be  doubled and tripled. The increases are  called ridiculous and shocking.  The Building Inspectors report  shows that total permits were down  this past year in comparison to the  previous year.  TEN YEARS AGO  School Board Secretary-Treasurer,  J.S. Metzler cheered board members  up by stating that he expected there  would be a surplus for the second  year.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  It is announced that "West Sechelt is  soon to emerge from the dark ages and  move into the twentieth century with  the realization of a long time dream."  After many frustrations and setbacks,  work is soon to begin on the water  works system.  Premier W.A.C. Bennett, as chairman of the B.C. Ferry Authority, has  been asking to ease B.C. Ferry  Authority regulations concerning  commuter rates for school children  and officials.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  4.47 inches of rain fell in this area in a  78 hour period. The storm cut power  on the Cheekye line and there was a  2-hour blackout.  In the classifieds, a cord of wood  sells for $10 and a waterfront, fully  furnished three bedroom house with  fireplace, oil heat, electricity, automatic hot water, refrigerator and  shower rents for $60 a month.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  In a report to the Village Commission, clerk Robert Burns said 92.2%  ($9,149) of the year's taxes were  collected compared to 91.1% ($9,083)  for the previous year.  All garbage collection will cease on  the Sechelt Peninsula by the end of the  month if the Gibsons garbage situation  remains unchanged, Mr. E.J. Rhodes  garbage collector, announced. A  petition to obtain action from the  Village Commission is being circulated  in Gibsons with respect to the problem.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Objection by an unnamed Vancouver group to the sale by Gibson  Brothers of Sea Bus Lines to Vancouver Dock Company, may delay  start ol the car ferry service from  Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons. A public  hearing on the question of extending  present passenger carrying franchise  of Sea Bus Lines to include vehicular  traffic is slated for the near future  according to information from Vancouver.  Roberts Creek School may be open  for classes early this year.  %m$  Gibsons, 1951 .Welt and Sarah Palmer had purchased the former Hinsta property  on Russell Road in 1943, and Welt had set about to establish a berry ranch. Within  a few years the Palmers were sending hundreds of pounds of strawberries and  raspberries to the Howe Sound Cooperative Cannery during peak seasons for these  crops. Berry prices rose, and the Palmers increased their acreage. In 1951.  photographer Gordon Ballentine made his way to the ranch to record a successful  '��  fruit growing operation. Gordon's visit proved to be a final commemoration. In  1952 the jam market crashed. World prices in effect that year barely covered the net  cost of picking. Berries literally withered on the vine. The cannery was obliged to  close and to liquidate its assets. The era of berry ranching as an agricultural  industry passed into history in this community.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >  George Matthews  $  One of the issues that comes  up as regularly as clockwork  as one covers the activities of  the various local government  bodies is the need to keep  down taxes. It is an issue  which strikes a ready chord in  the breast of almost all taxpayers who are probably convinced that much of the money  collected and spent is misspent.  So be it. It is good that elected representatives remember  that tax monies come out of  the pockets of their neighbours and treat such sources  with careful respect.  There is, however, on the  local scene a notable exception  and we would draw public attention to it. Last week the  School Board either finalized  or came close to finalizing the  details of a new contract with  the District Superintendent of  Schools. It is likely that the  gentleman in question is  being rewarded for his efforts,  whatever they are, from the  public purse to the tune of  160,000 per year give or take a  few thousand, plus or minus a  special allowance or two.  I have no personal quarrel  with the District Superintendent of Schools. I did teach a  year at the end of my career in  the local system under bis first  year of superintendency, had  very little to do with him,  found him courteous and obviously intelligent.  But let's look at a few facts,  the few that can be discerned  behind the traditional veil of  secrecy that shields the public  from the disbursement of its  tax funds.  Ten years ago, I was. teaching in School District HI,  Fernie, B.C. It is not dissimilar to this district in several ways. It is a ribbon of a district spread over sixty miles of  highway and at the time the  population   was   about   the  same as this one. The Superintendent of Schools was a  gentleman named Percy Pul-  linger. He served as superintendent unassisted and also  took care of a larger school  district centred in Cranbrook  (0 miles to the east. He never  gave the impression of being  rushed off his feet, on the contrary took life at a pleasantly  placid pace.  When I moved here in 1969,  Superintendent Hanna looked  after this, district and a small  segment called University Hill  in Vancouver besides without  aid. In 1971 at a time of budgetary crisis Hanna sought an  aide at a time when elementary teachers were being eliminated as an economy measure. The Sechelt Teachers Association, as it then was called,, polled the elementary  teachers in the district as to  whether they thought three  elementary teachers or one  assistant for the superintendent was the more important.  Overwhelmingly, they expressed a preference for  teachers over another supervisor but the superintendent is  the law and it was an assistant  we got.  At the present, there are  two undoubtedly well-paid  assistants to help the superintendent to do his job and a  confidential secretary to boot.  If we conservatively estimate  that Denley is getting $20,000  more than his predecessor  and add approximately  $40,000 for each of his assistants and a conservative  $15,000 for his confidential  secretary we see that, for one  man to do his job adequately it  is deemed desirable that an  extra $115,000 approximately  be spent of taxpayers' money  every year over what was  spent a decade ago.  Given the fact that one man  did like work here and else  where without assistance less  than a decade ago it must be  that performance is vastly  improved or else the School  Board is being conned by a  glib and self-seeking bureaucrat.  When you combine these  estimates with other administrative salaries in the district  and my personal conviction  that Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills could administer the  whole district without breaking sweat in these days of  computerized assistance, it  doesn't seem inflated to say  that between a quarter and a  half a million dollars yearly is  being squandered locally  without as much as a peep of  protest and without benefit to  the district's students.  Now that I live and work in  Sechelt, I'm often asked how I  like livingthere. The question is  invariably asked as though it is  generally assumed that there is  a huge cultural gap between the  neighbouring communities of  Sechelt and Gibsons.  Of course, it's ridiculous to  believe that two villages,  sharing similar geography,  only 14 miles apart could be  somehow different in personality and temperament, but  as the question is asked in such  a way that an analysis of the  differences and similarities is  expected, 1 usually do my best,  with apologies to the respective  interest groups and particularly  real estate interests, to provide  a satisfactory answer.  The first, and most distinct  impression one gets of Sechelt  and   its  people  is a  brash,  John A.  How can you be angry for long  al a man who's hoisted up on a platform  half-drunk at eleclion-lime,  feels sick hut holds it hack  until he's asked to address Ihe meeting,  then starts off with these words:  "Here's what I think of Ihe policies  of my honourable opponent"  and liming it beautifully  throws up on the platform,  while the audience goes wildT  Or who wires D'Arcy McGee  al his home in Quebec City:  THERE'S ONLY ROOM  FOR ONE DRUNK IN THE CABINET,  MYSELF. v  YOURS TRULY, JOHN A.  frontier optimism about the  future. Sechelt is an unabashedly crude, loud, boisterous, self-confident town.  As a community it appears to  have all the ethics, sensitivity  and culture of Dodge City in  the 1870s. The general impression left by the cultural geography of the place is that it is  owned, run and populated by  very busy, hard working, quite  intolerant, relatively uneducated hustlers. It is difficult to  escape the further impression  that every man, woman and  child within the village limits  runs some kind of small  business and sells real estate on  the side.  Gibsons on the other hand  has its feet planted firmly in the  past and hopes to remain there  thank you very much. It has a  quieter, almost smug kind of  self-confidence. The people are  generally more gentle, more  reserved and apparently less  ambitious than Sechelt folk.  Where Sechelt sports polyester  and plastic, Gibsons suits itself  in wool and leather. While less  overtly bourgeois than Sechelt,  Gibsons suffers from being  somewhat bland, lacking that  rough energy that keeps Sechelt going.  Having insulted the major  part of the Sunshine Coast's  population, it seems only fair to  say a word or two about the  minor communities, Roberts  Creek and Pender Harbour.  What can one say about the  citizens of Pender Harbour?  I'm sure both of them are very  nice people but I have it on  good authority from a summer  resident that they haven't  spoken to one another in years.  That leaves Roberts Creek.  The only sane and sensible  people on the coast live in the  Creek. When the brash, petit  bourgeois mentality of Sechelt  becomes overwhelming, a  Creeker can incline himself  i Please turn to Page Eighteen. �����������  mm  Coast News, January 12,1981  News item: School Board threatens to remove elementary school band program.  -j*!attA<&*i��-/��/&  Sir: Now that you have your new offices, can we have our band program?

Those of us who have  enjoyed the interlude while  politically "sitting out" the post  Nixon, post Watergate, post  Viet Nam years, who have been  content to think that the  conservative swing in the  United States really won't  affect us very drastically, will  have many awakenings.  Those of us concerned about  the environment, concerned  about issues that affect the  wage earner and small businessman are going to have to  come to a consciousness not  out of moral, or spiritual or  social awakening.

It will be interesting to see  who will speak out in Canada.  Trudeau has already assured  the U.S. that Canadian doors  are no longer open to those  fleeing military conscription.

In that letter Mr.  White levels a number of  broadsides at those who,  according to him, would defeat  the proposed Pender Harbour  Settlement Plan.  There are one or two points  that deserve comment.  First of all, Howard White  helped construct the present  draft of that plan and is a  member of the Planning Committee. As such his letter should  properly have been signed  "Howard White, Planning  Committee". This is an important point.  Next, no one is trying to  defeat the proposed plan.

Jericho Beach had been an Air  Force base during the War.  Since that time, it has passed  into the hands of the Army  Reserve.

I  think vaguely of the deserted  airbase at the beginning of  Twelve O'clock High and  Gregory Peck dreaming of lost  crews and dead missions.  Outside the hangar are most  of the induction-day crowd,  minus a few truant winos who  have reportedly, already sold  ���heir boots and gone over the  hill. Our ranks are swelled by  the many unfamiliar faces of  men who enlisted earlier. We  join the group and stand  around, smoking, talking,  stamping our feet, waiting for  someone to open the doors.  I he incredible disparities of the  induction-hall are lessened now  by the common uniform.  After a long, chilly wait that  engenders considerable griping  ���nd muttering, a sergeant  arrives with the keys and  admits us to the relative  warmth of the Quonset hul.

"Yeah, I hear they got Elvis  Presley booked, yells someone  else, carrying the gag along.  "Who needs him? Bring on  the dancing girls!", demands a  third voice.  "Come on, you guys", entreats a worried-looking Reserve corporal who looks about  fifteen, "we've got to try and get  organized."  "You tell 'em, sonny", laughs  an obvious vet with a seasoned,  been-there look.  "God! Are we going to have  to take orders from a kid like  him?", grumbles another old  sweat with less humour.  Things are in a fine state of  chaos and they stay that way  for the first hour or so. The  entire project is in the nature of  an experiment and the Reserve  non-coms who appear to be in  charge, seem unsure of how to  commence. Flustered kids with  stripes on their arms, blunder  about, trying to act with  authority and countermanding  each other's orders.

It is like a  travesty of all the boot-camp  movies I have ever seen. Apart  from the old-timers who drop  back easily into ancient routine, everyone seems to be  listening to a different drummer. Paul and I are in the same  platoon and we toss gags back  and forth. It is all a colossal  lark. The wet-behind-the-ears  kid who had first spoken, tries  his damndest to make like a  drill-instructor. He is visibly  nervous and his. earnest commands arc frequently met with  ribald rejoinders. I feel a  certain sympathy for him. This  deal promises to be a breeze.  The afternoon is taken up  with classes. It is all basic Army  stuff: map-reading; rifle-breakdown; first-aid and goes  smoother than the marching  since the instructors are older  men with some air of authority.  1 ask one of them about the  Nuclear Survival business, the  one aspect of the program that  seems to promise any surprises.  I am disappointed to learn that  we won't be getting into that  until the third week.  That Friday, we are mustered together to take part in our  first pay-parade. One by one,  we march up to receive two tens  and a twenty from the bespectacled paymaster. Upon receipt  of the money, we are supposed  to salute, wheel smartly and  return to our place in line. My  turn comes. I get nervous, turn  the wrong way, blow the salute  and retreat in an agony of  embarrassment. There are a  few scattered snickers at my  bumbling performance. But the  incident is quickly forgotten.  We pile in the Rube's car and  rattle downtown to have our  first Army-financed blowout.

The weekend parties by with  no untoward incidents. We  show up at the barracks on  Monday, anticipating another  easy session of cardboard  soldiering. It is immediately  apparent that the goof-off  shennanigans are over. There is  a different atmosphere around  the Base. No-nonsense, Regular Army types have been  brought in to replace the inept  Reserve kids. The most-formidable-looking of these is a  chunky, slab-faced man who  resembles Earnest Borgnine in  his villainous prime. "God!,  says Paul, "I hope we don't get  that bastard."  Of course, we do.  He stands spraddle-legged  before us, the very epitome of a  boot-camp bully. His small  eyes study us in apparent  disbelief. He shakes his head.  "All right, you people", he  beings, making the last word  sound like an obscenity, "you  have had it pretty soft up until  now. From here on in, you're  going to get the lead out and  shape up! We're going to  march till your butts drop off.  My name is Sergeant Murdoch  and you'd better not forget it.  That clear? Okay. Atten-huh!"  Murdoch marches us out on  to the chilly paradeground and  proceeds to back up his words.  "Hup-two-three-four. Hup-  two-three-four. Get in step, you  bunch of goddamn clowns!"  He warms us up in a hurry,  striding impatiently alongside;  spouting commands, admonitions and general invective. It is  a whole new ballgame for sure.

January 16th & 17th  Members & Guests Only  On Jan. 21, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council kicks off its  Spring Film Series with Outrageous, the Canadian-made  film which triggered the success  of Craig Russell, its star. The  film is also about Russell, a  brilliant female impersonator,  and his relationship to Margaret Gibson (played by Hollis  McLaren) who wrote the short  story on which the screenplay is  based. Russell's impersonations of actresses and singers -  from   Bette   Davis  to  Judy  Garland - really make the film,  but the storyline, about a "pair  of self-acknowledged crazies",  is both sensitively and humourously dealt with.  Lotomania, a 1980 NFB film  by BC's Tom Shandel will also  be shown. The evening begins  at 8 p.m. at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt. Admission is $2.50,  seniors and students $1.25.  There will be 7 films in the  Spring Series and cinema buffs  can purchase series tickets for  $15.  GIBSONS CHANNEL TEN  Wednesday, January 14  SECHELT CHANNEL TEN  Thursday, January IS  6:00 pm.

W^ J*"- Wth -17th  8 pm - midnight  mmtmmammmmm *^*WPPW.^.��>^n)^i-^W  Off the  shelf  by John Moore  Not many months ago I was  sitting in Peter Trower's living  room, looking out over the  harbour on a gloriously sunny  afternoon. John Burnside was  there and he and Peter were  preparing to celebrate their  mutual birthday. We were  surrounded by amplifiers,  microphones and the other'  assorted apparatus of Peter's  musical adventures and Peter,  and John were taking advantage of the electronic  hardware to add a new element  to one of their favourite joint  activities; they were preparing  for the evening's festivities by  reading their favourite poems  aloud, to one another and to  me.  As poem followed poem, I  was struck by two things; first, 1  was once again, having been  present at a previous session,  stunned by the spectacle of two  grown men bickering for the  privelegc of reading and over  who would read what. "If you  get to read 'Ulysses', I get to  read 'I Have Been So Great A  Lover'", I recall from one  heated exchange. And so it  went, "I'll trade you 'The Love  Song of J. Alfred Prufrock'  for..." etc.  The reason for my astonishment was simply that I'm a  product of a generation to  whom being called upon to  read aloud was one of the finer  forms of physical and mental  torture invented by the educational system. If the teacher  called on you specifically, you  knew they had it in for you. If  the class had to read in turns,  you waited, sweating bullets,  trying not to lose your place, as  your classmates mumbled,  stumbled, stammered and  stuttered their way through  their passages. It was easy to  lose interest in these uninspired  readings, to drift off into a daydream, only to snap awake in  the ominous silence that followed the monotonous drone  of the victim in the next seat,  suddenly realizing that it was  your turn and you hadn't the  faintest idea of what page of  The Mayor of Casterbridge  you were supposed to be on.  The teacher always gave you  a few very long moments in  which to emit strangled gurgling noises (I may have set a  world's record for clearing my  throat on more than one  occasion) before saying, with  heavy sarcasm and a chorus of  titters from the class, "The rest  of us are on Page I6S."  Even when 1 began to write  poems, I succumbed only once  to the temptation to hear what I  sounded like reading my own  work. 1 waited until I was alone  in the house, so I wouldn't be  inhibited, and read into a  cassette recorder. 1 listened to  the playback once and erased  the tape twice, just to make  sure. More than two years ago,  at an earlier gathering in  Trower's shack, John read one  of my poems and I finally heard  how it was supposed to sound.  That last afternoon with  Peter and John, it struck me  again how peculiar it is to be a  person who loves to read, yet is  unable to read aloud without  driving his listeners mad with  boredom and frustration. 1  suppose with practice and  patience, I might eventually  acquire at least a competence in  the art. My one New Year's  resolution is going to be to start  reading short stories aloud in  the evening. I'll start by reading  them to the dog and work my  way up to people.  It's not surprising that the art  of reading aloud has been lost.  The failure of the educational  system to produce a high  school graduate capable of  reading the words of a sonnet  rather than the singsong monotony of iambic pentameter is  only is only part of the  problem. Television has largely  destroyed the art of reading  aloud, and the art of listening,  as a form of entertainment in  the evenings, and the current  popularity of speed-reading  courses, which teach the reader  to mentally photograph paragraphs and whole pages, suggests that people have less and  less time to savour the oral and  aural nuances of the language.  With the notable exception  of CBC Radio's programs  "Anthology" and readings  performed on "Mostly Music"  opportunities for listening to  good reading are somewhat  limited. However, I got an  interesting little brochure in the  mail from a new company back  East called Listen for Pleasure  Limited, with the title, "Heard  Any Good Books Lately?"  They're marketing a line of  cassette recordings of books,  featuring titles like The Cruel  Sea by Nicholas Monsarrat,  Pasternak's Doctor Zhlvago,  ���elections from the "vet" stories  of James Herriot, (read by the  author), Tales of Horror by  Edgar Allan Poe (read by actor  Christopher Lee, for all you  late movie vampire lovers),  Conan Doyle't The Hound of  the Baskervllles, Hamlet read  by Sir John Gielgud and the  Old Vic Company, Stevenson's  Treasure Island, Wells' The  Time Machine, Milne's Winnie  the Pooh, read by actor Lionel  Jeffries and an assortment of  suspense and adventure novels  by Frederick Forsyth, Jack  Higgins, Alister Maclean and  Dick Francis.  The novels and longer plays  are abridged, "expertly" according to the advertising, to a  reading time of 2-2V4 hours,  with 2 cassettes making up a  pack at a cost of SI3.9S.  "Talking books" are not a  new idea. Most large universities have libraries of such  books to aid visually handicapped students. The advertising suggests that these  "books" may even "make  traffic jams enjoyable". Well,  that line doesn't quite bridge  my credibility gap, but it does  suggest that the car cassette  player may be capable of  something beyond ear splitting  heavy rock n' roll.  Listen for Pleasure Limited'a  address is III Martin Ross  Avenue, Downsview, Ontario,  M3J 2 MI, if you want to write  for more information.

How can you label  150 people all to be Hot Shot  developers and lurking Real  [���state promoters. No - Most  of them were your neighbours,  only there to inquire, listen  and question the planning of  our community.  The school boards educational meeting which was held  in Madeira Park Elementary  School Thursday night proved  Interesting. Marg Gooldrup  spoke very well on the feeling  of the parents auxiliary regarding basic education.  Seems the parents of the kids  at the elementary school not  only want, but would if necessary demand the return of the  e R's Top Priority to ensure  our kids can at least read, write, add and subtract, before  entering High School. A lot of  people agree with you Marg.  We were entertained by  students in Choral reading,  Dance and Gymnastics. Also  a very interesting slide show  by Craig Pollock, on the Sal-  monid project, supplemented  by the alternate school  incubation box project by  Mr. Roberts and his students.  The students council seems  to be holding its own with a  well spoken President Sorrel  Tomkies and SEcretary Rae-  lene Bathgate. Mr. Douglas,  chairman of the school board  thanked both the teachers and  students for the enjoyable  evening.  Back to business the board  waded through mounds of  paper and listened to community feeling on the proposed  deletion of the school band  program. Several speakers  stood up and gave a favorable  discussion on why it should be  kept in the school program.  One of the problems in Pender  Harbour is Mr. Stan Lewis-  Band Master has left the area  Pender Harbour news  and the board is hard pressed  to replace him.  Mr. Marshall Rae, after  speaking his reasons why the  program should be kept in  the schools, suggested Mr.  Denley keep looking until one  is found. Mr. Denley agreed to  do this.  The Pender Harbour people  are the only ones as yet to  come to a school board meeting and say they are in favour  of keeping the band program  going. "This is what we are  looking for, community feeling on this matter", said Brian  Hodgson trustee from Bowen  Island.  The board accepted a brief  submitted by the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society, regarding the 1981 Swim program, to be considered in the  provisional budget. A program very much along the  same lines as last year, says  Shirley Vader, President of  the Society. You don't change  a successful program, and we  were very pleased with last  year's results.  The Legion's entertainment  committee has been busy the  past month lining up local  musicians to perform on weekends. First on the schedule is  the "Four D's", a newly  formed group composed of  Denny James on bass, Doug  Topper on lead guitar and  vocal, Coro Diane on violin  and lead vocal, and Larry  Drum on drums (naturally).  They will be appearing this  Saturday night so do drop In  and catch their act.  The Legion plans to provide  entertainment every weekend.  Watch this column for 'scheduled performers. As noted in  the feature story on her in last  week's paper, Hahle Gerow  got her start at the Roberts  Creek Legion and I'm told  she's anxious to play there  again. We'll let you know  when she'll be appearing.  Auxiliary Treat*  This Sunday the Ladies  Auxiliary are again treating  the World War II vets to dinner at the Legion. And Billie  Rodgers recently presented a  $600 cheque from the Auxiliary and the Poppy Fund to  Legion President Roy Milliner.  Crib Winners  Mary Copping came first,  Emma Hupe second, and  Valerie won the booby prize in  the crib tournament at the  Legion  on  January  8.  Community Club annual general meeting  by Doris Edwardson  Pender Harbour  Community Club  The Annual General Meeting of the Pender Harbour  Community Club will be held  at 2 p.m. on January 25, 1981  in the Community Hall. There  will be an Election of Officers  at this time, so for all those  who have had beefs about how  the Community Club operates  or other arguments, now is the  time to get in there and maybe  be elected and run it your way.  They are hoping the members old and new will pitch in  and support them, for there is  a Bingo to be run, pool tables  are there and the teenagers  need supervision if there are  teen dances. The New Year's  Dance with Earl the Pearl at  the Hall was a success and  Bonnie Dubois had tasty plates of goodies for the snack-  " BaBaeg^g^BBa  "���*������**-*'*-"***'  Sunshine  Achieuement centre  APPLICATIONS ARE BEING TAKEN FOR  ANY DISABLED PERSON ABOVE SCHOOL  AGE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING THE  SUNSHINE ACHIEVEMENT CENTRE.

Larry, Pat,  Cookie, Don, Brian, Greg and  others put together a well organized and super fun evening. I don't know how much  they raised but I heard it was a  lot, which just shows how  much Pender Harbout and Egmont supported Vicki and  Roger in their time of grief.  I think I'll write about Movie Night in Egmont, just  because it's so much fun.  Every two weeks we get together in the Hall to have a few  chuckles no matter how  serious the movie. Last week  we watched Allen described as  one of those modern newfangled horror-sci-fi flicks. 1  enjoyed the banter passed  among the folks before during  and after the movie. Before  the movie someone said:  "What do we need a horror  movie for? Ail you have to do  is look at the economy to get  those kind of thrills".  During the movie, someone  exclaimed, "No one gets out  of the hall until this film is  over I",     whereupon     Ron  Kushner cried: "But I have to  go home and change my pants 1'  Afterwards the concensus  was that it was "the only show  in town." The Egmont review  of Allen... The special effects were good, the acting  was o.k., and the story was the  pits.  Next week the Community  Gub via the Deacon brings  you 0 Lucky Man. This stars  Malcom McDowell who also  starred in If and A Clockwork  Orange. It's a sort of parable  about a young man trying to  get ahead in life. Alan Price  did the soundtrack, which has  been described as excellent.  I've heard the album and quite  agree. At any rate, show up at  7:30 on Saturday night,  January 17 for popcorn,  pop, corn, etc. in Egmont.  I guess everyone knows  CHEK TV has cancelled CBC  programming and affiliated  themselves with CTV. Our  only channel, Channel 6, has  done it again. We still get lots  and lots and lots of Rhoda and  Hogan'a Heroes, but we pick  up a few movies and cop show  from the States. The pity is,  we lose Hie Fifth Estate,  The Nature of Things and  even Hockey Night In Canada.  The day of the Satellite dish is  coming.

SCOOP  Cowrie St.,   Sechelt  885-3628  -L  MM  A  etui Closed Caption programming  Maryanne���s  viewpoint  by Maryanne West  One of the more entertaining  aspects of television can be  experienced by turning off the  sound and watching the mad,  disconnected, through-the video-glass world. Actors become goldfish, mouthing air  and the leaping and gyrations  of dancers takes on a manic  quality. But if you are deaf this  is not a passing amusement but  all that TV offers you all the  time.  Last year three of the American networks, ABC, NBC and  PBS began in a small way  special broadcasts for the deaf  with a system called "Closed  Captions", similar to the  subtitles on a film. The closed  captions are converted to  electronic codes by the broadcaster and inserted in the  regular TV signal in a way  which is hidden in the picture.  A special decoding device is  necessary to "open" the printed  information or dialogue accompanying the programme,  thus the captions are not  distraction to the hearing  viewer.  In December the CBC received CRTC approval to use  this technology and the Federal  Government in its October  budget removed the duty on the  import of decoders which are  expected to be available in  Canada soon.  The CBC expects to be able  to use caption US programmes  early this year if they can be  delivered in time to be incorporated into network schedules. Expect such programmes as Barney Miller, Three's  Company and The Wonderful  World of Disney to be used  experimentally. As soon as we  have a Canadian captioning  centre such as the National  Film Board hopes to have  operational this year, the CBC  plans to provide closed captioned Canadian programming  in both French and English.  Needless to say all this  depends upon "the availability  of funds".  While realising its full objective of 5 hours per week of  closed captioned Canadian  programming is unlikely to be  met this year, the CBC promises to achieve a significant  beginning during 1981, the  International Year of the  Disabled and to expand the  service in the following year.  According to Government  statistics approximately a  million Canadians suffer serious hearing impairment,  including 200,000 who are  profoundly deaf.  If you are interested in this  service you could write to Bob  Warner, Senior Officer, Corporate Affairs, Box 8478,  Ottawa, Ontario K1G 3JS.  While on the subject of the  CBC, those who do not have  cable connections and are thus  captives of Channels 6 and 12  will remember that when the  CRTC gave CHEK-TV in  Victoria permission to change  its affiliation from CBC to  CTV it required the CBC to  provide boosters for the Sunshine Coast so that we can  receive the National Service  off-air.  I phoned the chief engineer  in Vancouver and was told  there are to be three boosters,  one on the top of Mount  Gardiner on Bowen Island, one  at Sechelt and one at Madeira  Park. They have run into  problems in getting power to  I 1  IIIfflflAII't  will be  the Bowen Island transmitter  but hope to have it operational  within a month.  An original way of welcoming the New Year is a  tradition in Colorado Springs,  U.S. It all began 58 years ago  when five friends decided to do  something different and celebrate 1922 atop 14,000 ft.  Pike's Peak, a spectacular  landmark rising some 8,000 ft.  above the city. They took some  fireworks with them and the  display so delighted those who  witnessed it that it was decided  to make the climb an annual  event. A club has grown up to  organize the expedition and so  many people want to participate that it has become exclusive admitting only one new  member each year.  Nowadays the elaborate  fireworks display requires a lot  of equipment all of which is  stored at the summit lookout  before snow isolates the peak  and the overnight necessities  are also packed in to the  overnight camp.  The climb itself begins  December 30 with a 15-mile  hike to base camp near the  timberline. At night a bonfire  tells the people below that all  is well. Next morning an early  start is made on the 20-mile  climb to the summit. At noon,  as they stop for lunch, thousands of lights twinkle from  below as people in the surrounding countryside flash the  sunlight from mirrors to show  their support of the climbers.  A few fireworks are set off  around 9 pm. as a test and for  the young children who cannot  stay up until the main display  which of course marks midnight, lasts for 15 minutes, and  on a clear night can be seen for  200 miles.

At  least I found it to be quite  amusing. On the plane coming  home from LA to Vancouver  we got chatting to a couple  beside us who, together with  their three teen-age sons were  heading to Victoria, a city  which they had visited several  times and to which they are  planning to immigrate next  year.  What intrigued me was the  fact that they were carrying a  little suitcase which contained  - of all things - sandwiches I  As you know, there is usually  pretty good food served on  planes, so that was not the  reason for the sandwich item.  No - it was because these  people find the food on the BC  Ferries so objectionable that  they went to all the trouble  of making and packing food  for that part of the trip.  All the way from LA. And it  was certainly not that they  were trying to economise in  some way - it was stricly that  they took such a poor view of  ferry meals.  If they think that the food on  the Victoria run is bad I wonder how they would feel about  the Langdale effort I Just goes  to show how far afield this bad  reputation has travelled, and  it is a great pity because the  ferry trips are so very beautiful and should be a big tourist  attraction year round.  The first meeting of the year  was held at Welcome Beach  Hall on Monday January Sth  with only a dozen members  present. The poor turnout was  attributed to the fact that  many of the members had still  not returned from Xmas vacations, while others had got laid  low with the flu bug.  As this was the Annual  General Meeting committee  reports were given for the past  years' activities which once  again showed a very active  and productive year with  many hours of volunteer work  recorded. The new executive  for this year are, President -  Mary Murray; Vice Pres. -  Allison Steele; Treasurer -  Jean Scott and Olive Comyn -  Secretary.  During the meeting the President called for a minute's  silence in memory of Alice  Burdett who had passed  away recently and who is very  much missed by all who knew  her.  Some of the new year's  activities were discussed,  the first of which will be the  Annual meeting of all auxili-  ary members which will take  place on Wednesday February  25th at St. Hilda's Church  Hall. There will be more on  this as the time draws nearer,  but it should be pointed out  now that this is a meeting  which is open to all auxiliary  members on the Sunshine  Coast. Apparently there was  a little bit of confusion last  year when it was advertised as  for   "Auxiliary   Directors".  A gentle reminder to all  members - and prospective  members - that annual dues  are now due and payable to  the  Secretary.  There was a special vote of  thanks given to our old faithful  Joyce Williams who once  again gave a donation of the  moneys raised by the sale of  greeting cards which Joyce  makes and sells for hospital  auxiliary funds. This year our  auxiliary was again able to  donate a good sized contribution of funds to the Coordinating Council who are in  charge of all funds raised by  the auxiliaries.

The date has been  set for the Monday of January  26 at Welcome Beach Hall  from 10 to 11 am, Registration will take place on that  morning, fee is $22 for ten  sessions and if you missed the  last term you should certainly  try to get in on this one.  Hopefully there will be some  new people registering as  well as those of us who want  to continue.  Important Area "B" meeting  There will be a meeting  open to all those residing Area  "B" at 2 pm on Sunday  January 18th. It will be chaired by Area B Representative on the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board Peggy.Connor, and the main topic will  be a discussion of the proposed purchase of additional  property for the Halfmoon  Bay Fire Department. This  property is adjacent to the  present site. This will also be a  good opportunity to ask Peggy  any questions which may be  of concern to you or your  group, and she will be happy  to discuss things with you.  Immediately following  this meeting the executive of  the Welcome Beach Community Association will be getting together and invite those  who are interested in activities at the Hall to stay behind  for a while to talk about plans  for the future of the hall. It  is felt that the hall is not being  used as much as it should be,  and the Board would like to  get some of your ideas and  input as to_ how this, .lovely  little hall can be occupied  more often, and what you  would like to see going on  there. More and more young  families are moving into the  area now, and we are .sure  that much more use could  be made of the premises to  help some of these new residents to get together and to  know each other. Your ideas  will be greatly appreciated.  PUBLIC NOTICE  As of January 15, 1981, Peninsula  Boarding Kennels will be under the  management of the Sunshine Coast  S.P.C.A.

January 13, 1981  Fleming on education  Teachers professional? No way.  by Franco Fleming  During salary negotiations  teachers often make the claim  that they are "professionals"  .ind therefore deserve "profes-  '.ional" salaries and status. The  occasional individual teacher  may indeed be a professional,  but the way our school system  ;s set up under the Public  Schools Act and Regulations,  jnd the training teachers are  given at Universities, both  negate the claim that teaching it  a profession al all.  Let us take a look at three  professions which are readily  ocknowladged and which dominate our society: medicine,  law and engineering. Lawyers  serve a long apprenticeship; as  they develop expertise and  experience, they vie for the  most controversial and difficult  cases. Doctors steadily update  their skills, and study the most  recent developments in surgery  and medications, and only the  'op experts deal with the most  desperately ill. The finest  engineers work with architects  and builders to span difficult  terrains, to build efficient  freeways, to erect fire-proof  and quake-proof buildings.  Once again, the more difficult  the task, the more expertise is  brought to play. Teachers do  not rise to such challenges.  Why not?  Teachi ig. at best, is an  "almost" profession. The individual teacher does not have to  fii dedicated to survive in our  system; he does not have to care  very much; he does not have to  attract clients; he does not need  to develop his professional  skills beyond the minimum  acquired at University. Because  of the diversity of the children  assigned to him, he can present  lessons and test, pass or fail his  clients, and take no responsibility for their lack of success.  No doctor takes satisfaction  in "almost" curing a patient,  "almost" saving a life. No  lawyer takes satisfaction in  "almost" winning a case. No  engineer achieves renown by  "almost" building a safe bridge.  No general is acclaimed for  "almost" winning a battle. All  these professionals are fighters,  creative innovators who daily  utilize all their power and  strength to obtain results.  Many teachers cannot be  rated true professionals. They  are content to present lessons  to the average student. They do  not like to deal with the very  bright, the very dull, the  physically or mentally handicapped, the emotionally disturbed, the socially inept. Yet  the way our system is set up,  with grades based upon chronological age, even the teachers  who might enjoy the challenge  of a client who has problems,  are handed classes and expected to deal with a cross-section  of humanity as a group.  The system forces the teachers to take very arbitrary  positions. The concept of  growth is abandoned on the  altar of the twin gods Conformity and Standards. The  individual is sacrificed; the  child with unusual needs is  destroyed by schooling. The  child who "fails" kindergarten,  who is "held back" in grade  one, is a loser and will never  recover from the traumatizing  experience. He will be graded  "inferior" with D's and E's, he  will be subjected to threats, he  will be acutely aware of his  comparative deficiencies as  long as he stays in school. He  knows that he is not welcome in  the "class" that should be his.  He will learn to see himself as  "different", "dumb", lazy, bad,  unwanted. Our schools must  feel very guilty for the dejected,  anti-social dropouts they turn  out.  To be sure, occasionally  some non-achievers will be  placed in an alternate class  where they will be given  realistic objectives and be  taught how to work to achieve.  There they will receive sincere  compliments for good effort;  they will find themselves loved  and accepted by their exceptional teachers. After experiencing Utopia, the children are  usually returned to the regular  classroom. There the contrast  of what they have experienced  with the return to the very  conditions, which defeated  them initially reduce them to  greater desperation, and they  usually drop out, dejected and  anti-social. Some people use  this phenomenon as criticism  for alternate education, when  the opposite should be thecase.  When you pay your school  taxes, try to be realistic about  what your education levy is  buying. Custodial care? Yes, of  a very high order. Group  instruction? Yes, under the  provincial curriculum that is  given. Meaningful, professionally guided development of  your child as an individual with  his own learning pattern and  his own potential? No way. The  system is not set up to permit  that kind of educational service, for all the billions of  dollars it costs.  Satellite dishes  studied by board  The regional board will form a study committee in conjunction  with community groups who wish to improve on the Sunshine  Coast's spotty television reception and limited cable service by  purchasing alternative equipment, such as antenna masts or  satellite dishes.  The decision, rising out of a recommendation by Area C  Director Charles Lee, was sparked by an application through  Area A Director Joe Harrison from the Egmont Community  Association for the board to fund, by specified area referendum,  the Association's purchase of a $35,000 satellite dish.  While the regional board cannot own or operate a television  station, it can take on the function of funding a society formed to  manage the dish.  Harrison pointed out that there are several areas on the  Sunshine Coast, like Egmont, where television reception is poor  or non-existent and cable service has not been extended.  Director Lee pointed out that community groups in Sandy  Hook and Tuwanek are considering similar moves and  recommended the board form a committee to study the situation.  By Finance committee  Priorities set  New Finance committee chairman on Gibsons municipal  counil, Bill Edney, chaired a meeting last Wednesday morning for  the purpose of establishing priorities in the spending of Village  funds.  The following items were considered to be of prime importance:  the purchase of new office equipment including improved plan  files, upgrading of the Henry Road storage buildings, municipal  hall renovations, the resurfacing of Brothers park playing field,  resurfacing and improving School Road, the installation of  sidewalks on North Road and the replacement of emergency  doors on the Aquatic Centre.  Planned expenditures for the above projects and others of  secondary importance amount to $193,200.  Confirmation of the latest order of priorities will come before  council on January 19.

George W. Inglis  The manifestation of Jesus  Christ in his baptism at the  Jordan River, at the hands of  John the Baptist, was an earth-  shaking revelation to the Jews  of the first century A.D., but  today it is a pale and largely  ignored event, celebrated by  some as part of the Epiphany  Sunday celebration.  Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah who had been awaited by  the Jews for centuries, was  simply a Nazarene carpenter  with a mission that was almost  as unknown as he was, himself,  to those gathered at the Jordan,  when he stopped to be baptized  by the fiery prophet who was  shaking up the Jewish people  with the Word of God after 400  years of prophetic silence in the  land, and John himself said he  didn't know him (John 1:31),  until the revelation (manifestation) by God, in sending down  his Holy Spirit in the form of a  dove to rest on Jesus, and  remain with him.  John the Baptist recognized  immediately that Jesus was not  only the long-awaited messenger from God, of whom the  prophet Isaiah had prophesied  600 years earlier, more or less,  but that he was more than just a  saviour of the Jews, a restorer  of the Chosen People to their  former glory.  "1 will give you as a light to  the nations," Isaiah said in  Isaiah 49, "that my salvation  may reach to the end of the  earth."  And yet it was an event,  when it did come, that attracted  comparatively little attention,  and seemingly was little understood, except by John the  Baptist and Jesus, himself.  The Creator of the world was  stepping into history and  taking personal note of a  human being, conferring upon  him the signal honor of giving  him his own Holy Spirit for his  companion, and yet, it went  comparatively unnoticed!  And today, 2,000 years later  the church, in spite of the fact  there have been literally millions of events attesting to the  reality of that manifestation as  a faith-event, is reduced to  quarelling over the efficacy of  that Holy Spirit as a force in  their lives.  Jesus, before he met his  death at the hands of unbelievers, called upon God to leave  his Holy Spirit in the world,  granting lo all faithful believers  the ability to call upon the  power of this Spirit as guide,  counsellor, friend and sustain-  er, just as he had in his earthly  life.  The gifts conferred on mankind by that same Spirit,  scripture tells us, are the  foundation of the church of  Christ:  "...the manifestation of the  Spirit is given to every man  to profit withal. For to one is  give by the Spirit the word of  wisdom; .to another the  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  Phone 886-8187  of the Spirit  world of knowledge by the  same Spirit; to another faith  by the same Spirit; to  another the  working of  miracles; to another prophecy; to another the discerning  of spirits; to another divers  kinds of tongues; to another  the  interpretation  of tongues; but in all these works  that one and the self-same  Spirit, dividing to every man  severally   as   he   will."  (I  Corinthians 12:7-11).  And  down  through the  centuries in which God conferred his Spirit upon manking,  through  the  intervention  of  Jesus Christ, the church has  been a  major recipient and  benefactor of the power of that  Spirit, meeting powerful opposition fearlessly in confidence  of the power of that Spirit to  combat evil and reward the  faithful.  Until now!  Now, it seems, a fragmented  and divided church is fading  away as a force for good in a  chaotic and unbelieving world,  where its mission of love and  stfecor is most sorely needed, as  never before in the history of  mankind.  The church is waging a battle  against apathy within its own  ranks, and is striving desperately to change its image in the  eyes of the world.  Somehow, the church of the  20th century is not unlike the  Israelitic nation of the 1st  century, which was battling  within its own faith against  apathy and the encroachment  of materialism and neglect.  It was at this time in the  Israelites' history that the  manifestation of God's Holy  Spirit came, and the results  were less than spectacular for  the skeptical Jews, but for  those who received the Spirit,  both Jew and Gentile, the  Spirit moved in a wave of  power that swept the Christian  church around the world, into  every race and color, with  earth-shaking effect.  Down through the church's  history, also, every time the  recognition of the manifestation of the Spirit has waned,  there has been a revival of the  Spirit of Pentecost, the Spirit  that came down like tongues of  flame on those believers gathered in the Upper Room in  Jerusalem.  In some of those times of rekindling of spiritual response,  like the Protestant Reformation, the events were cataclysmic, and in others they were  more modest and less discernible as a formal rejuvenation.  Such a modest, and somewhat scattered, awakening is  taking place around the world  these days, and has been for a  dozen years or so, in the form  of the charismatic renewal in  the traditional churches, where  staid traditionalists are being  affronted and threatened by  vocally enthusiastic recipients  of the power of the Spirit, and  churches are finding divisions  created by the phenomenon!  Strange how such an awesome gift as a personal and  enriching encounter with God's  Holy Spirit could create divisions in an institution which  got its start 2,000 years ago  with the conferral of that same  Spirit!  Harmony Hall happenings  OAPO #38 met at Harmony  Hall on January S for the first  general meeting of 1981 with  a full house in attendance.  December was a busy  month, the Christmas dinner  catered by Mrs. Helen Robertson saw 76 people sitting  down to a delicious turkey  dinner, after which carols  were sung, and a film shown.  About 40 members stayed on  for card games. The New  Years Eve dance with Bill  Malyea and his music was  enjoyed by 74 lively members,  and all deemed it a huge  success.  Our Thursday evening  bingo has been well attended,  and after the holiday recess  will carry on until April 30th.  On May 2nd we will have ���  Spring Tea, Bazaar and Plant  Sale. John Holloway and  Einer Jorgenson have assured  us that the plant sale will be  bigger and better than ever.  They have many lovely geraniums coming along, as well as  other things ready for spring  planting.  Carpet bowling on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. is in full swing  again and we would like more  people to come out.  Friday fun night starts up  again with card games, darts  and pool, and probably dancing as Ed and Molly Connor  have donated a stereo component to Harmony Hall. So  come on all yhou fun loving  people, this is where its' at.  January 26 at 6:30 p.m. is the  evening for Pot Luck dinner to  be followed by cards etc.  We had five members with  birthdays in January, and all  joined in singing "Happy  Birthday".  We are hoping to arrange  some trips soon - to wherever  the members would like to go.  The president, Gladys  Coates has asked members to  contribute something to our  meetings, and to start the  ball rolling, she read an article  she had written "The old  house on the farm" which was  greatly enjoyed as many could  relate to it, having lived in  similar circumstances.

Mahlman  A combination of superior  coaching, talented bench  strength, and excellent team  work have so far made a very  successful basketball season for  the Elphinstone Junior Boys  team.  Our current seven game  winning streak started at  Chatelech, on December 3 after  losing in the final game of the  Elphinstone Junior/ Senior  Tip-Off Tourney, in a hard  played game against a powerful  Brackendale team. After an  eight point victory over Chatelech, our Junior Boys were  triumphant against a talented  Garibaldi team. From there we  shifted into high gear handing  defeats to Brackendale, Pender  Harbour, Sutherland Hamilton, and on January 8, Brooks  of Powell River.

We would, however, like to  see much greater fan'support  than we've experienced in the  past at our home games. Fan  support means a lot to the  players and the tempo of the  game.  The Juniors Team's next  home game is Thursday, January 15, at 6:00 p.m. against the  same Brooks team we have just  played. The next day, the team  travels to Oceanview of Powell  River for a couple of games  with local teams.  We look for great community support on January 15, when  we take on the strong Brooks  team.

All teams in the league  played short-handed due to  disciplinary measures handed  out over incidences occurring  in previous games.  The league plays, a "no-  contact" brand of hockey, and  players are expected to abide  by the rules. Fighting is dealt  with severely, in the form of  suspensions, and any players  involved in more than one  skirmish face losing their  playing privileges in the  league.  Hopefully, the new year  will bring better and exciting  hockey through to the playoffs.

The first game the Sechelt  Credit Union Rangers were  going to play at home since  joining the Pacific Coast  Amateur Association Juvenile  A League didn't happen as  planned.  The coach of the Burnaby  team that was scheduled to play  refused to bring his team to the  Sunshine Coast claiming that it  was too far to travel.  Sechelt Minor Hockey President Chuck Brown told the  Coast News he was not surprised by that move since  Burnaby had been opposed to  letting the Rangers join the  league.  The Rangers have also been  experiencing problems of a  financial nature. The Sechelt  Credit Union, Roberts Creek  Bingo and South Coast Ford  have all contributed to the  success of the team as well as  the Indian Band through the  loan of their bus, however the  high cost of ice rental amongst  other expenses makes it necessary for the players to dig into  their own pockets for some of  Mixed        __  Volleyball vi  The Langdale Elementary  School will be open to anyone  interested in playing mixed  volleyball on Wednesday  nights from 8:30 to 10:00 all  facilities included.

Leading a  somewhat nomadic life, at least  for the greater part of those  years, was not conducive to  forming any lasting friendships. Naturally I encountered  a great many men, some of  them very charming and intelligent fellows indeed, while  unfortunately a few of them  could only be described at no  goods, s.o.bs., but our acquaintance was usually of a brief  nature. When the restlessness  and desire for change overcame  me I quit whatever job I  happened to be doing and  moved on leaving them behind.  This was especially true during  the war years.

I  don't imagine he made a great  deal of money but there was a  small bungalow on the property and a combination shed and  stable for his horse. During the  whiter months he worked for  the Lafleur Bros, (no relation  to the Madame Lafleur I knew  in Montreal), in their coal and  woodyard, and at times he used  his hone and cart for the  delivering of both commodities.  However, although Mogens  was well content working close  to the toil in any capacity, hit  real love was farming. He had  been manager of a state-owned  farm back in Denmark and it  was hit dream that one day he  would own his own farm right  here in Canada, the land of his  adoption. To that end he had  worked and saved. He had  emigrated to this country in  1926, the same year that I had.

After a year or  more of wandering in both  Prance and Germany he had,  like to malty lost persons,  traversed a complete circle and  (bund himself back where he  hid started In hit hometown of  Fartoe. It wM here that he  experienced a conversion while  attending a revival meeting and  from that moment on his whole  life was changed completely.  Perhaps now it the time for  me to state that aa far at my  feelings towards religion, and  by that 1 mean alt religious  beliefs, art concerned I am a  complete agnostic, leaning  possibly mote towards atheism  than the otherway, but this has  nothing whatsoever to do with  Mogent' faith... Hit was an all  the way faith in God, of the  many people whom I have met  who professed a belief and paid  lip service to their conception  of the AMgkty, he was the  only one who', *hUe not given  much to either talking or  preaching about it, really lived  his life as a Christian. If there  ever wat an individual who  tried his beet to live up to the  precepts that Christ taught,  Mogens wat the closest I have  ever known and I loved and  respected him for it, even  though the way we each lived  our lives wat to vastly different.  Now he had bought this farm  in Glengarry County, a few  miles from Dunvegan, Ontario  and had seat for me to help him  and, as he pot it on my arrival,  not only share m the work but  whatever proceeds we derived  from the farm.

Hungry Thirties" and no-one  who has not experienced living  through that difficult time can  really be expected to have any  conception of what it was like  with its mass unemployment  and its perpetual scarcity of  cash.  The property Mogens had  bought, or at least had made a  down payment on, was known  as the "Old MacDonald farm"  and comprised about 75 acres  of cleared land, while the  remaining 25 acres were scrub  timberland. The soil was stony  and poor and far removed from  the lush earth he had left back  in Woodroffe. The former  owners had, over the years,  extracted ' every bit of good  from the land and put very little  back into other than to graze  about a hundred or so sheep.  Along with the farm were a  pair of horses, an old broken-  down mare called Ruby and  her skittish two-year old cold  Nero. There were three cows of  indiscriminate age, about 30  sheep remaining of the original  flock and a dozen or so hens.  There was also a huge sow and  her ten piglets that Mogens had  bought soon after his arrival.  We both had high hopes, if  A re-ttctlrated activist  Contiaeed frees Page Three  begun.

If anyone thinks Reagan  wouldn't "push the button" I  would like to share a vivid  memory I have of the man's  capabilities, Id the early sixties,  before campus protest bad  really gained momentum, there  was a picture in the San  Francisco Examiner of an  army helicopter flying low over  a group of students standing  peacefully on the steps of the  administration building of the  campus of the University of  CahTorner at Berkeley. Some  carry baetieM aad all are short  haired and <eMervatively  dressed, the helicopter is  dropping cannlsters of gas  down onto the students and the  chemicals flow over the entire  University in black clouds. A  man who would call down air  strikes to close down one of his  countries' great universities to  ttop the dissent of a handful of  students it capable to mott  anything.  . We, ai Canadians, must not  let our leaders wait for the great  popular response to register  south of the border. We must  insist that, as our lots are so  closely cut, the official Canadian response to Reaganism  might travel south to help our  southern neighbors maintain  perspective.  Canadians too often feel:  themselves "powerless" in the  face of U.S. strength and  remain silent when, in fact, the  slightest statement from the  Canadian government makes a  big difference. Lester Pearson,  in speeches to several top U.S.  universities when he was prime  minister did more to allow the  U.S. senate to oppose the  adminittration on way policy  than several "dovish" U.S.  Senators.  Reagan, with the first Republican congress since Eisenhower, has a green light to  begin using military muscle. 1  believe this new posture by the  U.S. is not acceptable to most  Canadians. Canada's leaders  must be prompted to make  Canadian opinion known to  the press in the United States.  The military has learned much  from the sixties.

After the excitement of my  arrival had abated somewhat  and we had released the poor,  suffering guinea-fowl from  their box-like prison, we went  over to the house and got down  to a serious discussion of our  future plans. The main problem facing us was how we  were going to provide feed for  all these animals in our care.  Mogens had rattled the old  haymower almost to pieces  over the stony fields and had  literally cut every available  blade of grass, but still the pile  of hay in the rackety old barn  was pitifully small and would  never last till spring. It was  decided we would cut the field  of oats just before they ripened  and use them for fodder and  husband every cornstalk and  such root vegetables as were  growing in another field, so  that at least our stock would  not go hungry. Of ourselves we  gave little thought.

J'  ES  �� WESTINGHOUSE HEAT PUMPS  THE MOST COST EFFICIENT WAY  TO HEAT YOUR HOUSE TODAY  Incredible as it may seem, there is enough heat in  the outside air to enable the heat pump to help warm  your house even on the coldest days.  The Westinghouse heat pump only moves heat. It  doesn't have to produce heat,, so its operation is very  efficient.  In summer  the heat pump takes heat from  inside and moves it outdoors,  leaving your home cool and  comfortably air-conditioned.  In winter  the heat pump reverses itself,  absorbing available heat from'  the. outside air and transferring  it indoors to heat your home.  1. Cool indoor air circulates through the indoor 'A'  coil.  2. This air removes heat from the refrigerant flowing  through coil. The heat is then distributed through  the house.  3. After the removal of its heat the cold refrigerant  goes to the outdoor unit.  4. As the refrigerant flows through the outdoor coil, it  absorbs heat from the air circulating through the  coil.  The Complete System Heat Pump  is the ideal choice for new homes and renovations.  The svstem has two basic components ���an outdoor  compressor unit plus an indoor section consisting of  refrigerant coils and auxiliary resistance heaters.  The Westinghouse complete system heat pump requires no chimney, no Hues or venting of any kind; no  fuel tanks; no gas lines or connections.  5. The hot refrigerant again returns to the indoor 'A'  coil. The cycle is then repeated as long as heating is  required.  Yes,  depending on your requirements, Westinghouse can offer you a choice of heat pump systems.  The Add-On Heat Pump  is designed to work with your existing gas or oil furnace to reduce your, fuel consumption during the  heating season. The same reliable unit also provides  you with cool, comfortable central air conditioning in  summer.  Your forced air furnace operates in a supplementary  capacity during cold snaps when the temperature  stays below -4 C (approximately 20' F). Most ol the  winter you can rely On the heat pump to keep your  home snug and warm. That/s the way to conserve fuel  and money.

January 13. 1981  Nature Notes  by Vicki deBoer  I wasjust out watching a pair  of Ravens carrying on in a  peculiar manner when I realized they were performing their  courtship ritual. It seems the  unseasonably mild weather has  messed up their calendar as  ravens usually mate in late  t-'ebruary through March.  While l watched the pair they  soared up high in the sky,  stalled in mid flight and came  nose diving down to the ground  at an incredible speed with their  wings tucked in. While in the  dive they performed some  breath-taking barrel rolls and  somersaults. They did a few  tumbles then pulled up and  landed gracefully in the top of a  lull cedar tree. There the  courtship continued with some  erne noises that only a Raven  can make, some bill crossing  that looked like bird kisses,  plus some preening and caressing of each other's heads.  Both male and female Ra-  '. ens will work at building their  nest. It is usually made of sticks  and placed high among the  trees or on a rock cliff. They  will line the nest with soft  material like moss, leaves,  grass, hair or even wool. The  four to six blue-green eggs  spotted with brown are usually  laid in late February through  March. The female sits on the  eggs alone for the full three  week incubation period, during  that time the male brings her  food. The parents will roost  away from the nest soon after  the eggs hatch but they both  feed the babies for five to six  weeks. Once they are old  enough to fly they forage on  their own but sometimes tag  along with the parent birds for  awhile.  The Raven was once thought  to be a companion of the Devil  and was believed to be closely  connected with spirits. In  Europe and Asia he was known  as the prophet of doom. In the  literature of past centuries the  Raven was described as "the  ominous Raven" or "the fatal  Raven". Despite his glossy all  black plumage and his habit of  always being seen near areas of  death or tragedy he is not a bad  character. In fact he is rather  helpful because of his scavenging habits. Like the vulture  family the Raven will scavenge  anything edible, plant or  animal. He is one of nature's  garbage collectors and a very  good one at that.  Ravens live in pairs or small  groups but they roost in very  large numbers. This is why  during the day you may only  spot one or two together but at  sunset they can be seen flying in  large flocks.  The Raven is the largest  member of the crow family and  this family is considered by  many to be the most intelligent  of all birds. They are known to  be very playful birds and love  to hoard bright objects. Wild  Ravens are rather wary and not  easy to watch but when tame or  even semi-tame their playful  and varied behaviour can be  very entertaining.  Because of their size and  strength, Ravens have few  enemies. Their main enemy is  man; because of its reputation  for attacks on lambs and  poultry in many areas it has  been shot by man. A Raven is  not capable of killing a healthy  animal but they sometimes take  a small or weak animal. Their  main diet, however, is carrion  and in populated areas garbage. Without nature's garbage  collectors on duty the world  could become a rather distasteful place to live.

Raw  newcomers who don't know  one plant from another but  who have new homes they  would see set off with colourful  plantings. My advice is the  same every year.... Don't talk  about it, do it and start it now.  Turn the soil in the area you  wish to plant, yard out the  obvious grass and weed  clumps and turn the rest  under. Make a clean, nicely  curved edge (almost a tiny  ditch) to separate the area  from the lawns and make a  beeline for the plant shops and  as many flowering shrubs as  you can afford. Plant them a  good three feet or more apart  as they all grow fairly bit and  spread. These will snug up  against the house or shed and  provide a pretty backdrop for  further annual planting should  you care to continue when the  real spring weather arrives.  Good backdrop flowering'  shrubs to consider, all beautiful  in their own right and season  are: Bridal Wreath, Double  Mock Orange, Deutzia, Queen  Anne's Lace, Forsythia, Hydrangea (dark red or blue),  laponica, Pyracantha, Heathers and Brooms. Many of these  may very easily be obtained  from cutting and from your  generous gardening friends but  it is nice to treat yourself at the  plant shops too. The list is  endless, requiring very little  initial work and almost no  maintenance. Right now is a  dandy time to pop those shrubs  in and get off to an early start.  This has been a truly peculiar  year with so little frost. People  picked garden salads and fresh  flowers New Years Day. Here it  is the middle of January with  geraniums still going, Candytuft and wallflowers in bloom,  Polyanthus and Anenomes  well up and many annuals still  trying.  Just keep your eye on the  weather man because with all  these plants up and at it a hard  frost will require an awful lot of  running around with evergreen  boughs and newsprint to  protect these tender babies. A  late frost is always a beastly  mess and actually the plants  have no right pretending it's  spring when it's not and my  massive clean up is yet to be  done.  Happy Gardening.

If  he'd stay in the tree long  enough for me to get a leash on  Ted, I wasn't going to give a  damn whether I missed the cat  or not, bounty or no bounty. It  was already getting dark in the  tall timber as the low clouds  blocked out the sun and I didn't  relish a cold night in the woods  all alone. I had to collar that  dog!  But this time they both  outsmarted me. When the cat  saw me coming, he jumped.  And away went Ted, hot on his  heels to leave me standing there  absolutely pooped, wondering  what to do next. By this time I  wasn't even sure I could find  the cabin before it was too dark  to see anyone. It sure looked  like a night in the woods.  I sat at the foot of the tree  and rested for awhile, rolled a  smoke and reached for my old  bullet-lighter to strike a flame,  then looked around for wood  with which to light a fire. But  dry wood in new forest as that  time of year was just about  impossible to find. I began to  backtrack, looking for a hollow  windfall or shelter of some kind  with no luck. Then I remembered Perse's instructions in  case of becoming lost. Fire off  three shots, then wait for three  in reply. The roar from the  muzzle of the rifle should have  been heard by Perse if he had  been at the cabin. I waited with  anxiety for answering shots,  but to no avail. He either hadn't  heard me or I was really lost.  I had often wondered what I  would do if I ever became lost  in a forest, panic or play it cool.  It was about to find out.  My first reaction was to run.  It didn't matter where... just  run! But the thought of leaving  that back track was like the  thought of jumping off the end  of the world. With daylight, I  would eventually find my way  , back. Time to sit down, roll up  a smoke and think like Perse.  What would he do? He'd find  something to burn, that's for  sure!  But burn what? If 1 could  find a rotten fir stump there  might be a chance of finding a  strip of pure pitch at its heart.  That would make a torch and ]  could back track to the cabin.  But this was a hemlock country  -1 hadn't seen a fir alt day.  But cloth would burn. And  maybe I could make a torch out  of that. I wore an old dress shirt  over my Stanfteld woolies. Off  came the jacket... off came the  shirt... into strips about an inch  wide I tore it, making them at  long as I could. When finished,  I warmed the fuel-hungry  lighter in the palm of my hand  to be sure of a flame to get the  first strip burning.  'Eureka!'... it workedl I  didn't waste time. I figured if I  backtracked to the Haslam  Creek drop-off, I could work  my way down stream to the  first tree the cat had rested in.  From there it would be a alright  shot to the cabin. Provided my  shirt-tails lasted long enough.  As each piece burned down I  would feed it slowly through  thumb and finger to keep it  going. I was blistering both but  too cold to feel any pain at that  point. But the strips were  burning fast and I was on my  last one with still a long ways to  go. I was making good time  with my make-shift light...head  down, nose practically on the  ground as old Ted would have  done, but down to my last strip.  As the flame went out, I stood  up to let my eyes adjust to the  dark.  Suddenly, a few yards ahead  of me, I saw an amber,  gleaming eye. It was unblinking, holding my stare steadily,  not moving. A cold chill ran  down my spine, my sweating  brow turned to ice...I dare not  move.  Then a deep, guttural voice  demanded "Who's that?" There  was a slight trace of fear in it  but I recognized it with the  greatest semse of relief I will  ever feel again in my lifetime.  "Phew-eeel It's me, Perse!"  "Carl, My God man. What  you tryin' to do. Scare me right  into the grave of my long, gone  ancestors?  "When I saw that four legged  creature coming at me, fire  spewing from one paw, I  thought it was the fire wolf  from our tribal totem come to  haunt me into my gravel"  The sudden release from the  pressures of the last few hours  made us both giddy with  laughter. But my hunger and  Ted's safety soon settled us  back down to the problems of  the moment. I explained about  the shots I had fired and  wondered why he hadn't heard  them.  "When I got back to the  cabin, I knew we were going to  need lights and grub. I hiked  Z   886-8101    '  **��^*EBEACHCO^  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST  TAXI  out to the car, drove into the  store at Cassidy and grabbed  the first things I laid my hands  on. This little two cell flash with  the thick lens was all I could  get. I grabbed a few weiners  and a handful of apples and  headed right back.I told them  you and Ted had a cougar up a  tree and both might be dead by  this .time. I hope we get back  before that yarn gets to our  wives!"  No wonder that little weak-  celled light looked like a cat's  eyc.it didn't throw as much  light as my flaming shirt tails.  1 had hoped we would head  back for the cabin, but Perse  had other plans. He handed me  a few weiners and a couple of  apples. "You can munch on  them until we get back to where  you last heard the dog. Can't  leave the old boy out therewith  that cat all night. If he has him  in a tree again, he'll be  expecting us".  We must have walked for an  hour before we heard Ted. He  sounded a long way off...like  on the ridge across the river,  "We'll have to build a fire and  call him in. We can pick up the  track tomorrow in the daylight".  Perse had been eyeing a big,  pitchy pine. Stripping a few  strands of cedar from the dry  side of a nearby tree, he soon  had a few of the pitch burls  bubbling merrily. Within an  hour, half of the tree was  ablaze, my boots and socks  were drying on propped up  sticks, and my feet were finally  beginning to feel like they  belonged to me again.  Before lighting the fire. Perse  had fired off three shots and we  had both shouted at the top of  our lungs. The tree fire was just  beginning to push back the  darkness of the forest when  pool old Ted walked into the  firelight.  He stopped and looked at  both of us, jowls and ears  sagging almost to the ground,  his sad eyes filled with reproach. God knows how many  times he had treed that cat, and  then have to leave him when he  was ready for the kill. There  was no forgiving that.  Perse patted his leg and  called him but he ignored the  gesture. I had been eating a  weiner and offered him one. He  ignored that also. He found a  spot near the fire, turned in his  tracks a few times, then finally  plunked down with a heavy  sigh. His only interest was the  last two inches of his slim tail. It  was absolutely bare and raw  from beating against trees,  rocks and other obstacles all  the while he was on the chase.  That becoking wand was never  stilled as long as he knew his  master was behind him. But it  was between his legs when he  slunk into our camp that night  and it remained there until we  were back on the track the next  day.

Building lots are  needed in Egmont  The regional board intends to approach the Lands Branch for  permission to develop Crown land to provide much-needed  building lots in the Egmont area.  Area A Director Joe Harrison pointed out at Thursday night's  board meeting that there are virtually no lots for sale in the  Egmont area and that many young people who work in the area  are unable to live there.  Harrison said he knew of at least one large Crown lot, presently  being considered for use as a parking area in conjunction with the  Skookumchuck Provincial Park, that could be developed to  provide housing.  "The needs of local people should come first," Harrison said.  If the land were developed by the board, Harrison said, the  development charges could be used to finance a water system.

Mostly  Creekers stay in the Creek,  protecting themselves against  the intrusions of almost everybody.  If   I   were   contemplating  buying a house, or finding a  place to raise a family, I'd settle  in Roberts Creek. When it  came time for my children to  learn manners I'd take them to  Gibsons, but when it came time  for them to get a job or learn  how to earn a living, I'd send  them in the other direction. The  perfect solution would seem to  be born in Gibsons, grow up in  Roberts Creek, work in Sechelt  and die in Davis Bay.  Although a School Trustees'  work has its challenging opportunities, much of it is routine housekeeping and the  monthly educational meeting  hosted by one of the schools is  both rewarding and inspirational.  Especially in Madeira Park  where the Board met last  Thursday, coming in out of the  wet, blustery dark into a  school warm with the friendship of many parents greeting  each other, and bright with  the voices and quick movements of children getting  ready to entertain their  guests.  The parents of elementary  school children at Madeira  Park take a keen interest in  their children's education, as  President of the Parent's  Auxiliary, Mrs. M. Goldrup  reported to the Trustees. The  executive meets regularly with  the staff to share ideas and  concerns. Two community discussions have been held this  year to explain the school's  reading and math programs  which have helped greatly to  clear up confusion among parents and relieve their worries.  Mrs. Goldrup said the parents wanted their children to  be literate and articulate, able  to express their thoughts  easily in good written style;  they viewed with alarm any  suggestion that writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation  were no longer necessary  skills.  Further meetings are planned to discuss Physical education, Science and Character  development. Principal Her-  cus spoke warmly of the support he and his staff receive  from the Parent's group.  "It isn't that we dont have  problems, and of course we  have differences of pinion,  "Mrs. Goldrup added," but  we think a co-operative relationship between staff and  parents is in the best interests  of our children".  Following this report  Trustees and parents were entertained by the students.  Sorrel Tomkies and Raelene  Bathgate, President and Treasurer of the Student Council  gave a quick rundown of the  school's many activities,  cross country meets and soccer tournaments with other  schools, Hallowe'en and  Christmas parties, (the Christmas party for the kindergarten  and Primary children was put  on by the Student Council and  Upholstery ft Boat Tops  \r     Fabrics & Vinyls in stock  L^J Good Supply Available  w BOAT HAULING  ^  .>& Up to 25' J^  886-7310  The Weinhandls  Wyngaert Rd., Gibsons 886-7310  proved most enjoyable);  a Salmon trip to Klein Creek,  Craft Fair and Christmas concert. Looking forward to  spring, marbles, frisbee and  kiteflying contests are in  the planning. Photographs of  the Fall events were mounted  in the Library and a focus of  much interest.  The Salmonid Enhancement  programme, for which this  District ran a pilot project a  couple of years ago, ii now  part of the Science curriculum  and Alan Pollock showed slides of the expedition to Klein  Creek to collect eggs for the  Incubation experiment. Gordon Hood and Doug Reid from  Pender Harbour Secondary  School with teacher Ted  Roberts were also present to  explain how the incubation  box was made, .set up in the  creek and stocked with eggs  and gravel. The students were  obviously saddened and very  disappointed that their experiment had been so stupidly  tampered with and destroyed  but equally determined to try  again next year and continue  their part in improving the  salmon runs along this part of  the coast.  Mrs. Talento's Grade 3 and  4 students in a choral speech  exercize titled "Our Problems in School" reminded  their elders of the difficulties  of the English language, that  for example you can never  take for granted that because  the plural of mouse is mice,  the plural of house will be  hice.  The values of creative dance  to a child's poise, control, his  self-image and his co-ordination skills was explained by  Mr. Metcalfe, whose older  students demonstrated routines they had worked out  themselves following a repetition of a popular number from  the Christmas concert by Mrs.  Cameron's class, engagingly  dressed as ducklings.  That teaching and learning  are a shared reciprocal  experience, each inspiring the  other, was demonstrated most  vividly by Linda Antoniak's  joy in overcoming her handi  caps to take part in the entertainment, remembering the  poem to a tree. Her joy in her  achievement lit up the whole  gymnasium and touched the  hearts of all who heard her.  In Sechelt  Amalgamation likely  for new subdivision  A subdivision proposed for the area immediately north west of  the Village of Sechelt wilt likely get the blessing of the regional  board to amalgamate with the village once the development is  complete.  Sechelt Alderman and board representative Brian Stelck told  the board Thursday night that the developers, Porpoise Bay  Estates Ltd., "have met the kinds of concerns we have and have  indicated in writing that they will maintain Village road standards  throughout the subdivision."  Stelck had opposed approval of the subdivision, presently a  part of Area B, in December on the grounds that the already  traffic-clogged village would inherit not only an increase in traffic  from the 86 lots planned for the development, but, in the event of  amalgamation of the subdivision, a substandard road system as  well.  Stelck stated that the developers have requested the subdivision  be amalgamated with the village.  Area B Director Peggy Connor said she had no objection to the  amalgamation of the subdivision with the village as long as no  pressure had been put on the developers "to join the village".

Perhaps the heavy fog crouching across  Porpoise Bay is the reason behind the inactivity.  BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  The first thing is arranging for the structure to stand upright. This is done, in part,  by "floating" the house on the earth in the same fashion that a stick floats in water.  Another part ol the upright trick is to have the heavier weights of the structure in the  lower half, and the final part, is to tie the roof to the walls in such a way that the wind,  snow and rain loads are transferred from the roof to the footings and so to the ground.  In early building, roof loads were often greater than the walls could take and the walls  were pushed outwards. If you make a "roof" with this paper and then push down on  the peak you will see why.  The house of 1000 sq. ft. with an 8' concrete wall, 8" thick, for its basement, is sitting  atop a weight of about SO tons. More graphically this is the same weight as ten  elephants. Naturally, this is not likely to move far, either up or down, though it can be  moved sideways by heavy trucks, bulldozers, or slumping of the earth. To reduce this  risk, footings, are often provided with slotted keyways or steel dowels which lock the  wall to the footings.  The story of building is the story of the gradual widening of the distance between  walls or other supports. The ancient Greeks used a form of post and beam  construction with limited spans. Then came the Romans, who invented the arch, and  increased span length. The Gothic cathedral age'saw the introduction of large roof  trusses, which again increased span, and in the last 150 years, the English produced  Portland cement (named for its resemblance to Portland stone and steel). Towards  the end of the Second World War, the French developed prestressed concrete.  These last three things made our modern buildings possible, but this is hot the end of  the story, for as we enlarge our knowledge of how atoms are bonded together, we will  become capable of making material "to order" and so increase span length beyond  our present dreams.  This brief review does not cover all aspects of this fascinating subject, but the idea  of this is to give the reader a basic understanding of the principles involved.  The next application of science to building is in the lay-out of rooms. As stated  earlier, sunlight is free and can be utilized by all those who make a small effort. All that  is required is to ask "What am I doing at such and such a time?" and put the  appropriate room where the sun will shine in it at that time.  At night, for example, darkness is an aid to sleep and since the darkest side of a  house is on the north, this is plainly the side for the bedrooms. For those rising before  9 a.m. the sun is still in the easterly quarter, so here is the place for seeing the sun in  the bathroom and over breakfast in the kitchen. Since kitchen activity will continue  through most of the day, bright southern light will help make work more pleasant, so  now there is a need for the kitchen to face both east and south. The sou'h-east corner  Continued on page 2  m Sunshine Coast Realtor, January 9, 1981  BUYING PROPERTY...  ol the house is perfect. The bathroom itill (aces east and il it is placed between the  kitchen and bedrooms, it has the twin advantages of beingcbse to the bedrooms and  simplifying the plumbing.  The living room should be close to the kitchen, especially if an eating area is  included. This room should be sunlit from morning coffee lime through evening  dinner and the only way to do il is to place the living room with iis long side along the  south wall and provide a west window. A hall is nonliving space so (his should go on  the north wall and so fix the location of the front door. A side door from the kitchen on  the easl and a sundeck off the living room complete the picture.  [t sounds simple and it is simple. If the lot has been chosen carefully this design will  fit it like a glove.  The effects of shape on the size and cost of public services apply directly lo our  regional district, and hence, all our pockets, so this will be used as a large scale  example.  Roughly, the Sunshine CoasI Regional District is 60 miles bng by three miles broad  for an area of 180 square miles. This same area could be covered by a square with  each side about 13b m|le* long or a circle having a diameter of roughly 15 miles.  If it was decided to fence our district il would lake 60 plus 60 plus 3 or 126 miles of  wire. For the same area as a square it would take four times 13', ot 54 miles and for a  circle it would take about 47 miles. Thus, it takes in ihe order of three limes as much  material to do a job in our regional district as it would in a circular or square one of the  same size. This unalterable and basic fact should be understood and remembered by  all taxpayers, as this region has to grow lor the reasons shown earlier, and will have lo  have emergency medical facilities (e.g. Pender Harbour medical clinic), central  sewage systems, and the other "luxuries" of country life, which become vital  necessities when a district bursts at the seams with people. Most ol these costs will be  unavoidable and the only way to save is to review non-vital items with a (ine-loothed  Comb and to require full and accurate estimates of first and operating costs.  Exactly the same rules apply the building houses. The long, lean ranch house,  which was designed for, and properly belongs in a warmer climale, is a wasteful and  needlessly expensive aborlion, when copied here. A small edition ol 1000 square feel  would probably have a 50 fool length and be 20 feel wide. This gives a wall length ol  140 (eel and a wall lo be covered of 1,400 square feel. For ihe same area, a square  house of 32 feet sides, has 128 feet of wall length and 1280 square feet of area to be  covered. This represenls a saving of material of 10 percent, nol to mention Ihe cosl of  labor (o erect it. For a little thought, ihis can be money m your pocket.  As you can see, Ihe larger ihe house, the larger ihe saving. Since a house  represents two kinds ol costs-first building or capital costs and operating cosls,  which include interest charges, heal, light and repairs, anything you save backs up all  the way along the line, and can amount lo several thousands of dollars over the life of  the mortgage.  Smaller exposed surface areas also mean lower healing COBls, and this is going t"  be ever more Important, The world's reserves ol fossil fuels (oil, y.is. coal, etc.) are  being used ai a faster rale than new sources are being discovered, and this includes  Alaska, Libya, ihe Nonh Sea and the Eastern conlinenlal shelf ol Norlh America  Because ol ihis. the day must come when governments will have lo limit usage, and  Ihose who have prepared lot it will have done Canada and themselves a good turn.  Automatically, Ihis changes the conventions on the amount  used. The not loo old Idea, that 1 inch in the Walls and a super Ium  ceiling was mote than ample, is already on its way lo Ihe muse  companies are suggesting 3;. inches in Ihe walls and 6 inches  electrical healing is used and ere long, it will fall in Ihe economic  healed homes An additional saving is twissihle by using relleclivi  isulatlon to be  clrlcal utility  eiling. when  vapor barrier, which doubles as a radiant heat insulator  In other directions also, the experience of the past has a direct bearing on the  future, so on this basis, it is fare to say that costs will rise and houses will get smaller.  The professional man of SO years ago thought a 20 roomed house was just about  adequate (or his small family and the staff to run H. Today, his successor cannot go  beyond a tour bedroom, 2% bathroom, living room, dining room, and rec room (12'..  rooms) and this will tax his earnings to Ihe full. At a lower income level, the "roomy"  house of the '20s and '30s has also shrunk so that a 1600 square feet home is thought  to be large and a 1000 square feet about or slightly above average.  As governments redistribute wealth by means of taxation Ihis shrinking process  will continue, and it will be for future generations lo decide if it's a good or a bad thing.  One of Winston Churchill's lesser known, but more perceptive remarks was that if  you expect a man to think small, put him in a small room and if you want him lo think  on the grand scale, surround him with large rooms  As with houses, so with lots, especially with Ihe capital gains tax, introduced in 1972  for the sale of personal residences on lots over one acre in size. People, being what  they are, will quickly learn to avoid the lax by making sure the lot size is 0.999acrcor  less. The long-term result of this will be bad (or Canada and I (elt Ihis strongly enough  lo write to the then Minister of Finance in Ottawa. There was no reply, even though  the letter had merely pointed out the possible hazards ahead and suggested different  lot scales for towns and country.  As houses have grown smaller, Hydro bills have become much bigger, and there is  a direct connection. The electrical outlet has replaced the maid and you can see how  much by looking at your hydro bill. On it you will see your consumption in kwh  (kilowatt hours). If you divide this figure by 60 (if you pay every two months), you will  get your daily consumption of electricity. Now divide by 24, and you have your hourly  average. One kwh is equal to five maids, and they work 24 hours a day non-slop and  need no bedrooms or sitting rooms. This is where some of the 20 rooms of yesteryear  have gone.  Another shadow of the future is cast by the factory produced modular house. My  own feelings on this are mixed. On Ihe one hand, costs can be lowered by this means,  while on the other hand, 1 feel lhat the custom-designed house and the small builder  are "backbones" of our way ol life and must be preserved. If houses are made like cars  and sausages, heaven help us all. My views aside, housing is moving steadily from Ihe  fields ol structural and civil engineering and architecture to mechanical and  production engineering, and ihe social results will be dramatic one way or Ihe other.  For the short term, compromises will be made, and custom-made housing will  continue, as long as builders keep abreasl of technology and introduce every labor  and material-saving technique. This includes roof trusses instead of joists and ralters,  penumatic nailing, precision cut lumber from the supply yards, modular units,  systems assemblies, wall panels, standardised windows, and Ihe latest light weight,  law cost materials.  Anolher ihing which will grow is paperwork, and ihis brings up Ihe National  Building Code. This was the brainchild of the National Research Council with assists  from Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. and the Canadian Standards Association  Like "Queen's Regulations" for the fighting services, it has been humorously  described as having Wen wrmen by geniuses for the guidance ol idiots, but, in (act, il  was compiled by a large number o( quiet, ordinary citizens, who sal around in  cheerless rooms in Ottawa andelsewhere, debating and arguing over the content and  phrasing of every sentence. Many who were connecled with il in any way, felt its  introduction by municipalises would bring Ihe dawn of a golden age in Canadian  housing, as standards would be jacked-up, and costs would be lowered through  bigger production runs.  By and large, ihings are belter, though one unexpected development was the use of  the code as a "bible" which often has the eflecl of destroying the hope lor application  of common sense and experienced judgement in cases where safety is nol involved.  To further prolect Ihe public, the professions ol engineering and architecture  introduced bills in ptovincial legislatures to regulate the pracliseof these professions.  In British Columbia, il is unlawful lor an unqualified person lo design buildings over  $50,000 in value, or lor anyone, olher than a qualified ptojessional engineer lo design  works exceeding $25,000. Any one employing unqualified people takes a financial risk  too, lor no insurance company will cover mm professionals This is common sense,  , jusi as il is to stop your enthusiastic amateur "doctor neighbor liom perlorming a  brain operation on your wife or husband  Since the earlier part of this was written in 1972, two imporlant things have  happened.  The first was ihe establishment of the Province's Agricultural Land Reserve. A  potential land buyer could well be affected on Ihe Sunshine CoasI, so a lew words on  ihe workings of Ihe Land Commission may be ol help. The purpose of the A.L.R. is to  provide a land bank lor future lood needs While agricultural land is classified from 1  to 7, with class 1 being Ihe best, and 1 and 4 (incl) being acceptable (ot agriculture,  problems arise when ihe land is in groups 5,6, or 7 and the decision lo include or  exclude land becomes a subjective matter.  There ate two forms of appeal. The first is exclusion ol land from Ihe reserve, while  the second is lot non agricultural or rezoned use of ihe land, while keeping it in the  Land Reserve. Appellants lor exclusion have the righl to appear belore Ihe Board in  person, and with professional advisors. This right is not conferred on appellants  asking lor rezomng etc within the Reserve. The diflerence is important, and should  there by any doubt, the Ihing lo do is to visit ihe Regional District office and have a  yarn with the planning staff.  In 1973 the Yom Kippur war gave O.P.E.C. its excuse to star) oil blackmail, and the  western world will never be Ihe same again Plainly, we can discover more oil, (ind a  new substitute for Ihe "tiger in the i ink", or save oil as much as possible. Many and  varied are the ways being tried on the Sunshine Coast lo conserve oil, and they  include triple windows, two sets of double windows, reducing window areas on ihe  norlh and easl sides of houses, combined oil<wo;>d furnaces, high efficienty wood  sloves, dark timing of windows to encourage heat collection, heal pumps, which are  glorified refrigerators, increased insulation to 9' in some case;, ihe use of aluminum  (oil for vapor barriers, which doubles as a radiant heal reflector, small solar collectors,  Ihe odd windmill, selling thermostals back a few degrees and wearing sweaters and  the use of 2" x 6" (S)24"o.c. instead of 2" x 4" (q'16"o.c. This gives a stronger wall, uses  about the same amount of material, somewhat less labor, bul allows (or better  insulation and room lot improved windows  The eflect ol many of these measures can be achieved by correel siting and design  of the house, which have been discussed earlier al some length  The patterns of local weather, in lurn, ailed heating. Air crosses the area from the  Pacific and strikes the outer coast and sheds most of lis rain on the western side of the  island, to our benefit, belore it strikes the coast mouniains The mountain snow caps  act like giant icecubes, and the air cools, gels heavier and sinks. In some areas like  Howe Sound, Sechelt Intel and its arms, and Jervis Inlet, there are clear runs for the  cold air to reach the re warming effect of Georgia Slrait, so it is not surprising to  observe northerly winds howling down Howe Sound.
