 jLEGISLATIVE LIBRARY    81.1  ' PARLIAMENT fiUILDINGS  '. VICTORIA, B.C.  iV8V 1th  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15<t per copy on news stands  Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  August 19, 1980  Volume 34, Number 33  Responsibility varied  Harbour cleanup  not so simple  by John Moore  All of the concerned parties agree that Gibsons harbour needs  to be cleared of beached and floating debris, but when the cleanup  will be done and by whom remains uncertain.  The meeting held last Tuesday morning between members of  Council, representatives of thc Bay area residents, and Charles  Brooks, Regional Manager for Public Harbours and Wharves for  Transport Canada, proved less than conclusive owing to the  absence of Larry Sorken of the provincial Lands Branch.  Sorken was unable to attend the meeting because of a heavy  work schedule following his return from vacation.  Mayor Goddard, Aldermen Labonte and Trainor, Municipal  Clerk Jack Copland, and Bay area residents Lome Lovell, Jack  Myers and Roy Boutilier questioned Brooks about the Village's  options and the extent of federal jurisdiction in the harbour.  Brooks pointed out that federal responsibility extends chiefly to  objects moored in thc harbour and to public moorings themselves.  "I take the view that all public moorings should beshown on the  chart," Brooks said, responding to questions about the large  number of concrete blocks and cement-filled oil drums scattered  about the harbour.  Brooks also advised Mr. Lovell to prepare an itemized list ofthe  scows, barges and floats moored in the harbour and forward it to  his office for possible action under the Navigable Waters  Protection Act which "protects the public's right to navigable  waters". Brooks also said he would write to Larry Sorken and  bring up the question with the Lands Branch.  Though Brooks pointed out that the Harbour Master, who  represents the federal presence in the harbour is largely an  honorary and unpaid title in small harbours, he has been in  contact with Gibsons Harbour Master Harry Smith.  "We're in the process of finding out who does own what," Smith  told the Coast News, "But it all takes time. Some of that stuff has  been floating out there for so long it's almost impossible to find  out who owns it. It's fine to say 'all that stuff should be moved', but  where are you going to move it to?"  Smith also pointed out the need for caution when dealing with  other people's property. A derelict boat which was beached in the  bay and finally broken up months later, was reported missing by  its owner shortly after its destruction. Smith said that a number of  mooring anchors have already been moved and piled down at the  foot of the bluff.  Jurisdiction over the debris on the beach is a matter that will  have to be decided between the provincial government, who hold  the foreshore as Crown land, and the municipality, whp lease it  from the province.  Municipal Clerk Jack Copland pointed out that the village took  the lease for recreational purposes and to insure that the village  had input into any water lot leases granted by the province.  A further meeting, which Mr. Sorken will attend, has been  scheduled for Thursday, September 4 and should clarify the  question of responsibility for the foreshore. In the meantime,  owners of the debris on the beach are encouraged to take the  initiative and remove it themselves.  Charges to be laid  Girl badly hurt  at Ruby Lake  At 6 pm on Sunday, 18 year old, Janice Louise Agostino of 6525  Broadway in Burnaby was the victim of a boating accident on  Ruby Lake.  She was swimming in the lake when she was struck by a ski  boat. The operator of the boat failed to see her in the water.  She suffered severe lacerations to her left arm and one lung was  punctured.  Assistance was given by the operator ofthe boat, bystanders, a  Tyee float plane and Ihe RCC helicopter. She was taken to St.  Mary's Hospital in Sechelt, then transferred to Vancouver  General. On Friday, Sechelt RCMP reported that an operation at  Vancouver General appeared to have been successful and it is  hoped that she will regain most of thc use of her arm.  This week, police expect to lay charges of dangerous operation  of a motor vessel and criminal negligence. The charges carry a  combined maximum penalty of 12 years imprisonment.

Alternate Diivclm lor I'cudci llnrhmir. Howard White, told  Ihe board members lhal there hud been complaints that because  the roiul In the dump hud been so poorly cleared many people  were leaving thai garbage along Ihe sides ol Ihe road rather than  drive in.  Director Jim (iurney, who is Chairman ofthe Waste Disposal  Committee, said that Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon had  assured him thai the situation was under control. Gurney said that  there was a problem with a shortage ol fill hut Ihis was occasioned  by the difficulty in the summertime of getting heavy equipment to  move the fill.  Dick Derby who was in charge ofthe maintenance ofthe dump  for several years acknowledged that there was a problem with the  availability of till and heavy equipment to move it in the summer  lime but said il had been his practice to gel enough provided in thc  winter and spring months when thc heavy equipment was  available.  Derby also told the Coast News thai there had been some  problems traditionally with garbage left at the side of Ihe road  though in more recent years it had been diminishing.  Effects of the current beer strike are obviously being felt  10:05 Saturday morning as thirsty residents lined up to  locally. This was the scene at the Gibsons Liquor Store at  deplete a shipment of American beer.  Weighted vote a factor  Board in procedural wrangle  A procedural wrangle at the Regional Board meeting of August  14 may be a portent of things to come. The wrangle developed on a  vote on a letter from Prince George asking support from thc  SCRD for a Prince George position on the membership of a joint  committee of the Provincial Government and the private sector to  undertake a provincial analysis of municipal by-laws affecting  development.  The Prince George letter objected to what it said seemed to be  an over-representation of development interests and asked for  support in its position.  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board voted to support the  Prince George position by a vote of 4-3 with Lorraine Goddard of  Gibsons, Brian Stelck of Sechelt and Director Charles Lee in  opposition. When the motion was declared passed, Director Lee  asked that a weighted vote be taken.  Under weighted voting Lee and Goddard would have three  votes each because of the populations they represent. Stelck  would have one vote and the other five directors would have two  votes each for a total of 17 votes.  At the August 14 meeting. Chairman David Hunter rules that a  weighted vote could not be called for after the vote was taken and  Director Lee challenged the ruling. The matter was left in  abeyance for future clarification.  Chairman Hunter told the Coast News that the board would be  looking at the whole issue probably in Management Committee  with the advice of Secretary-Treasurer Jardine. The chairman did  express some concern that the election of Regional Director Lee  to the Municipal Council gave Sechelt a total of four votes which  seemed to be a perversion of the intent of the Municipal Act.  At the time of going to press, Director Lee could not be reached  for comment.

Charges laid against ihe six  vary from mischief to breaking a Supreme Court injunction  against interfering with the work on thc power line.  A subject of controversy on (he Sunshine Coast and elsewhere  for almost three years, thc Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line is  designed to take power from the mainland to Vancouver Island by  1983. B.C. Hydro has insisted that the power will be needed and in  an advertising campaign on Vancouver Island claimed that  brownouts will be necessary in the near future unless the energy  supply is assured.  Opponents of thc line insist that the line is a $1 billion dollar  white elephant and that there are sources of power available on  the island at much lower cost. They point to several studies done  which say island needs could be met by utilization of hog fuel and  conservation methods.  In the demonstrations which are taking place during the  construction of an access road lo the proposed power line route on  Texada Island, the demonstrators have been standing in from of  the bulldozers of the construction crew and demanding  justification for their presence on Crown land. Failing the receipt  of full justification the protesters then stand in front of the  equipment until the arrival of the police. They then demand a  moratorium on the work in progress pending a public hearing on  the power line.  A spokesman for the organizing committee told the Coast News  that the numbers of demonstrators present during the last week  have varied from 9 to fifty. The trials ofthe six people arrested are  scheduled for September.  "There will be ongoing demonstrations and civil disobedience  into next week," said the spokesman, "with a group from the  Sunshine Coast expected up here to show their support on  Tuesday."  Further action by those opposing the line, a loose confederation  known as the B.C. Energy Coalition, will include a demonstration  at the Legislative Building in Victoria on Wednesday of next week  and, also beginning on Wednesday, the picketing of Hydro offices  by members of the Energy Coalition throughout the province.  "The demonstrations starting on Wednesday will be ongoing."  said the spokesman. "We intend to put the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  line on trial."  The spokesman praised the support received from a group from  Victoria calling themselves the Chameleon Party. "They came up  here last week and gave us very good support." he said.  A Texada Island resident suggested that those who were ir  support of the demonstrations but who could noi make n io  Texada should phone B.C. Hydro and demand a public hearing.  Demonstrators have been assured by the police thai  demonstrations are entirely legal. It is only the interference wilh  the work crews that is not.

Veterinarians say no epidemic  Local veterinarians say they have confirmed no cases of  Parvovirus Enteritis in dogs on the Sunshine Coast. The disease,  believed caused by a mutation of the cat distemper virus, has  received considerable attention in the media recently, and  veterinarians in Canada and the US have been swamped by  questions and vaccination requests.  Dr. Bailey, veterinarian at thc Gibsons Animal Clinic and  Sechelt Animal Clinic, says he has encountered no cases of the  disease this year and only one suspected case last year, though  publicity surrounding outbreaks of thc disease has led to a  increased demand for vaccinations and a depletion of vaccine  supplies.  Dr. Bailey points out that dogs on the Sunshine Coast arc  protected to an extent by being isolated from outbreaks of the  disease in other areas. The majority of outbreaks have occured  during or after shows or field trials where large numbers of dogs  arc in close contact.  "At this stage." Dr. Bailey said, "It's up to the individual  whether or not to get their dogs vaccinated."  Vaccination against Parvovirus Emeritus takes ihe form ol two  injections, administered It month apart. The injections cost SI.'  each. According to a press-release issued bv the B.C. Veterinary  Medical Association, the effectiveness of the available vaccines  cannot he judged this early inthe history ol ihe disease, since nol  enough long term data is available on vaccinated dogs. Protection  offered by vaccination is thought to be HW, in ^ out of 10 dogs  Dr. Lawrcnuk of Coast Veterinary Service in Pender Harbour  says he has requested laboratory analysis in Iwo suspicious cases,  one in Gibsons and one in Pender Harbour, bul has received no  confirmation lo dale.  Symptoms of the disease are \ omiting and diarrhea, often vv uh  blood, as well as weakness and sometimes lexer. Several common  dog diseases give the same outward signs as Parvovirus, but  fortunately Ihe basic supportive treatments arc similar. Adult,  otherwise healthy dogs have a better thai 50', chance of sun iv nig  the disease il treatment is begun early. Puppies, older, or trail docs  run a greater risk of dying despite treatment.  The BCVMA points out that far fewer eases of Parvovirus  Enteritis arc confirmed by laboratory than are suspected bv  veterinarians.  "      .

By all accounts of those who  knew her. young Marnie Jamieson was a  line young girl on her way to becoming a  splendid young woman. No words can  hope lo express the sense of outrage and  pain that thc entire community now  feels for Marnie and her bereaved and  grieving family.  And it is the Communities of the  Sunshine Coast which must draw the right  conclusions from thc terrible events ofthe  past week. There is an important, urgent  need for some form of public  transportation here on the Sunshine  Coast.  Whatever the dangers that this week has  so terribly underlined, our youngsters will  continue to hitch-hike up and down the  Sunshine Coast and drunken drivers will  continue to risk their lives and the lives of  others because of the lack of a safe and  reliable transportation system.  Buses are available. It is to be hoped that  the will to provide a Sunshine Coast  transportation service will be found before  more tragedies occur.  Those of us who have lived here fora few  years can look back on an enormous  amount   of  carnage  on   Highway  101.  Young people have been run over while  walking home and have been killed again  and again in driving accidents when they  should never have been driving.  It is not enough, though it is necessary,  to increase the penalties for drinking  drivers. It is also necessary to provide them  some means of getting home if they do not  drive, lt is not enough to warn our young  people about the dangers of hitch-hiking  on the highways. It is necessary that we  provide them with an alternative and safe  means of travel.  Nothing that can be said or done can  lessen in any way the dreadful impact on  the community generally and on the  bereaved family in particular of the events  of the last several days. All that can be  hoped is that from this tragedy something  can be salvaged which will make it unlikely  that such as this can ever happen again.  We want our children to visit back and  forth among the neighbouring  communities. Thus do the barriers of  parochialism and mistrust break down,  but we cannot any longer be willing to  compel our young people to seek rides  from strangers in order to visit their  friends. Safe transportation should be  their right and research into the  possibilities of providing it should be  undertaken immediately.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  ��FfPS W  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Coast News staff were enjoying  two weeks ol annual midsummer  vacation.  TEN YEARS AGO  The Coast News staff were enjoying  their annual two weeks of summer  vacation.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Gibsons councillor Sam Fladager  said he had received a number of  complaints about brown water. The  problem, caused by leaves falling into  the reservoir, has now been pretty well  cleaned up.  Plans are being laid for a two-  avening film festival, featuring the  works of internationally famous National Film Board artist Norman  McLaren, to be held at Gibsons on  Sept. 21 and 22.  Charles Bedford of Roberts Creek  has achieved publication fame in an  article in the Vancouver-published  Western Homes and Living magazine.  There are colour pictures of many of  Ihe shells he has collected and a  written explanation of shell collecting.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Sechelt district school board was  informed thai Ihe new schools at  Halfmoon Bay and Sechelt have been  completed and may be occupied.

Eight hundred dollars damage was  caused to the Liquor store in Gibsons  Tuesday night when the brakes on a  car failed and it rolled down from the  Dutch Boy cafe to the front door and  pushed its way about two feet inside.  Morning clouds rolled away to give  place to brilliant sunshine on Saturday  when the Redrooffs Beach and Country Club held its sixth annual regatta.  Crowds of spectators lined the foreshore in front of the T.Campbell and H.  Merrilees homes to watch the colourful  costumed sail-past swimming events,  rowboat races and log-rolling competitions.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Under a cloudless sky Saturday with  an estimated 2,500 persons watching,  and the harbour filled with more craft  than ever before, The Pender Harbour  Aquatic Club eighth annual regatta  staged at Irvines Landing wtiat has  been called its most successful event.  While the start was on the slow side,  owing to various hitches, before the  day was over the spectators watched  the numerous events run off in  champion style with the youngsters  having a field day in the many events  held for their benefit.  The Welcome Beach Community  Association asked that the road from  Redrooffs to Northwest Bay hill where  it joins the highway be improved and  maintained so that a bus service can  reach the area.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  This Peninsula lost one of its most  colourful and most admired personalities with the death of Dr. Frederick  Inglis, 80, who died at his home August  12. Well known and liked along the  shores of Howe Sound for his kindliness and interest in the sick, he was  also famed in the wider field of labour  relations  Construction of an addition to the  Army, Navy and Airlorce Hall on  Gambier Island got a real boost from a  volunteer working party last week.  Answering a call for help issued by  veterans' unit president Francis Drage,  J.P., men and women turned out,  complete with tools, and did a major  job of building.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  It was recently discovered that a bear  was responsible for killing 22 of E.J.  Myers' sheep in the Kleindale area.  Cougars had originally been blamed  for the raid, but tracks were found at  the scene of the crimeand identified as  those of bears. The culprit remains at  large.  Due to the increasing number of  pupils for the elementary school in  Gibsons, the Howe Sound United  School Board has purchased twelve  acres of land adjoining the English  Church where they plan to erect a new  high school.

Peterson  limit**  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ��^  George Matthews  ?l  It is seldom that I take  issue on matters concerning  North American politics and  mores with my friend and  fellow columnist George  Matthews. Over the decade or  so that George and I have  been friends I have learned  to respect him as an observer ���  of some considerable perspicacity and gentle wisdom  and I do frequently defer to  him as a Canadian born and  bred whether I'll admit that  to him or not.  With all due respect thus  paid, I am afraid I must take  frontal issue with what seems  to be George's attitude towards the American political  system as revealed in his  column this week.  Let me admit that I have  been and may be again  something of a pain in the  neck to my North American  friends, particularly Canadian. The archetypal Scots  immigrant with the John  Knoxian forefinger of accusation thundering denunciations about the ways of this  continent is something that  most people can get enough of  very quickly and, when  temperate, I do try to stem the  flow of invective and ascerbic  criticism that comes readily  to the tongue when I contemplate the relationship between Canada and the United  States of America in the first  place and the quality of  political life in the selfsame  United States in the second  place.  I guess if there is anyting  in the concept of racial memory those of us who hail  from the north west corners of  Europe have been resisting  with our spirit at least the way  of the conqueror for thousands  of years. The barbaric and  energetic majority giving  themselves airs and seizing  what was ours has been a  factor in the racial memories  of most of the world's peoples  and with most of the world's  peoples said conquerors are  resented and their attempts  to assimilate passionately  opposed.  The meekness of Canadians  as they surrender their birthright for what's left in the  bowl after the Americans have  eaten the potage goes hard  against the grain. From oil  profits to auto pacts to salmon  fishing to the closure of  branch plants ir. Canada in  favour of less modern and less  efficient plants in the United  States, the rape of Canada  proceeds    apace    with    the  Americans so assured of their  prey that they no longer  even bother to be polite about  it. "They don't even bother  with the kissing stage anymore," is how a Canadian  politician put it in conversation with me lately.  Now, God help me, I've  been getting angry about all  this for fifteen years, vocally  in classrooms and bars and  drawing rooms have I made  an objectionable fool of myself  about the fact that Canada  was being taken to the cleaners.  "Well we need their capital," murmured my gracious  Canadian hosts.  "Hells bells," bellows  Burnside thereby losing instantly all credibility, "they  need your resources. Bargain,  bargain for the love of Mike."  Meanwhile America continued  smoothly to acquire Canada  with Canadian money. We  give the oil companies tax  exemptions so that they can  invest in more oil research.  Their profits soar, the proportion of money invested in  oil exploration declines, they  purchase control of other parts  of the Canadian economy with  their huge oil profits and on  it goes.  Alright, alright I'm growing  hysterical and tiresome -  again. Alright, the process is  too far gone for it to be  reversed and I may as well  save my breath and stop  belabouring my Canadian  friends with my cries of outrage.  But really, George, when  you can find in that mindless  and hysterical carnival which  is the way in which Americans  choose their presidential candidates something to be preferred over the Canadian way,  I must protest. When you can  applaud protracted eighteen  month contests between millionaires as a triumph for  democracy, George, you a-  maze me. When you suggest  that masses of people in paper  hats chanting mindlessly is  an evidence that Americans  take their politics seriously, I  am outraged.  The simple and rather  dreadful fact of the matter  seems to me, George, that in  fact the man chosen as a  presidential candidate by the  Americans in their bizarre  and absurd fashion does hold  in his hands the power of life  and death over the bulk of  mankind.  The prolonged agonizing  that has left the leaders of the  has left the leaders of the  western world with a choice  of Jimmy Carter and Ronald  Reagan for president is an  indication of a society which is  spiritually and morally bankrupt, say I. Can't we at least  have conquerors who are  in the full flush of their  confident vigour?  I suppose when the Romans  rolled in their chariots and  with their legions of hired  footsoldiers into ancient Gaul  there were some who declared  themselves grateful for the  right to feel the Roman boot  upon their Gallic neck; who  saw in the swaggering conquerors only a superior  people following their superior  path. There was, I think, a  grandeur to old Rome which  the paper hats in Madison  Square Garden quite miss  and 1, again as all my life a  minor member of someone  else's empire, can find little to  praise in the ways of these  uninspired conquerors.  As Canada continues its  drift from industrialized country to the status of a colonial-  ized third world country  entirely under the sway of the  United States of America  I'll try not to be tiresome  about it but I will not and I  cannot find much to admire  in the American way and most  particularly nothing in the  stage-managed hysteria of  their nominating conventions.  Apples  After you wash off  the chemicals and fertilizer,  what can you wash them with  to wash off the water?  Michael J. Nozinski  by George Matthews  Like many Canadians over  the past month, I have been  devoting a considerable part  of my TV watching time to  an examination of the American electoral process.  To a poor simple country  boy from the land of ice and  snow, the Republican and  Democratic conventions are  events of almost byzantine  spectacle. Like a week-end  pass In Paris for a young  soldier from Moose Jaw during WWI; you don't necessarily have to like it but you just  can't help yourself.  I have had a fascination  for American politics ever  since "I Like Ike" and while  this doesn't qualify me in any  way to claim any kind of  expertise, I don't mind making a few comments on the  American system as opposed  to our own.  In the first instance, politics  is taken much more seriously  in the U.S. Americans are  infected with the notion that  a politician can really make a  difference. They believe for  example that a president can  bring about world peace, can  solve inflation; can put people  back to work and generally  lead the nation to the land of  milk and honey. This Moses  syndrome doesn't operate in  Canada. We tend not to  believe in the possibility that  a handful of men and women  who spend four or five years  in a big room insulting one  another can really contribute  to the common good. We  instead take the more conservative position which says  that since there are bound to  be a few citizens in the  community who think they  know it all and don't mind  saying so, why not round  them up at election time and  vote them all into one place  where they can exercise  their egos, while the rest  of us get on with the business  of getting by.  In the U.S., they do much  the same thing except that  there, they have let the  politicians speak in public so  often that the people have  begun to believe them. In  Canada, we do these things  more quietly. We let 1500 or  so people, who haven't been  elected by anybody, get together once every four or five  years to decide which one of  them they will allow the  Canadian people to elect to  the office of Prime Minister.  There is no pretense of a  democracy, where the people  are allowed  to decide  who  should run for office. If you  happen to be a member of  one of the political parties  (surely fewer than 1% of  Canadians are members of a  political party) you can have  some say in who runs for  office. Even in the Soviet  Union, the people are more  involved in the electoral  process than that.  The American system is  different, mostly as I have  suggested because the people  have been led to believe that  a politician is important.  The results of course are much  the same, but the process is  truly more open and democratic. Candidates for the  presidency must run and run  hard for office for a good 18  months before an election.  They must spend millions  of dollars and speak and be  spoken to by hundreds of  thousands of people. It is a  terrible crucible where one  error, one occasion of tearful  anger, one ethnic joke, one  momentary indiscretion can  break a man forever. Once the  millions have been spent, the  hands shaken, the promises  made and the babies* kissed,  the hopeful politician must  present himself to the potential humiliation of the political  marketplace, the primary election. There were something  like 36 of these mini-elections  held in the U.S. this year,  in these practice sessions, any  citizen of the state can vote  for any candidate by simply  declaring himself a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent. This system has  the benefit of permitting the  frustration vote (when you get  a chance to vote against  someone rather than for the  person) to take place before  the real election.  As a result of these primary  elections, individuals are elected to represent the people  at a political convention where  the nominee is finally selected. The system has its  faults, but being undemocratic  or not allowing the participation of the greatest possible  number of people is not one of  them. Americans are occasionally heard to say that  there is rarely a choice between the nominated candidates, that given all of the  talented leaders in the U.S.,  they always seem to come up  with people of inferior quality,  the Carters vs the Reagans  for example. The truth is that  very few people are willing to  subject themselves to such a  terrible ordeal.  One specific example of the  Please turn to Page Fifteen.

We  would like to express our very  special thanks to Gibsons'  young people who cheerfully  waded inlo the water to help  bring the boats in, and then  helped us de-rig and load them.  They even sold Small Ship  Society buttons for us and their  enthusiasm was obviously  catching!  Wc look forward to visiting  again next year, and hope that  we will be joined by at least one  Small Ship from Gibsons.  Again, our most sincere  thanks to all of Gibsons citizens  for their welcome.  Yours sincerely  THE SMALL SHIP  SOCIETY  Elizabeth Hardy  for (Mrs.) Barbara Cedroff,  President & Imperial  Bitching Officer  Pender Water Board  Impressed  Editor:  On Sunday, August 10, I  attended and participated in a  horse show organized by the  B.C. Paint Horse Club at  Brushwood Farm, Pratt Rd.  Having recently moved to this  area from Southlands, Vancouver, I was impressed with  the fine way the show was run,  as well as the turn out and  sportsman-like attitude of the  competitors.  I look forward to enjoying  more of these events in the  future.  Yours sincerely,  Jeanine Ellingham  Editor:  Recently two letters appeared in your paper from  the Pro Developers in the  South Pender Water District,  in an attempt to justify their  position. Mrs. McFarlane  states in her letter that I said  her husband was a ripoff  for taking a salary. This is  absolutely false. Also, I did  not say hundreds of dollars  were spent in casual office  labour. There is no way  at the present time to find out  how much was spent.  False statements and unsigned poison pen letters, of  which I am a recipient, shows  the kind of people who are  supporting the Developers.  As a Union man 1 believe in  good wages, but have the old  fashioned notion that the  employee is under an obligation to earn them. No one  expects the clerk to go out  locating water leaks. This is  the job of the maintenance  man, nor do I object to the  clerk doing books for other  firms in the water board  office provided the business of  the board is not neglected.  It would help to pass the time  as previous clerks have stated  it is a most boring job.  The firm of accountants of  McKibbin & Beecham will  provide an office & phone  service for regular office  hours (not just three hours) in  other words provide all services that are required at a  saving of $10,000 per year to  the subscribers of the water  district.  The other letter stated that  its trustees have a thankless  job and serve without pay. I  agree with this as I was a  trustee for several terms. The  letter also states that the  board is elected to work on our  behalf. Again I agree. The  writer contradicts himself by  stating it is ridiculous to come  to a general meeting to  'dictate' (his term) to the  board. How can the board  work on our behalf if they do  not know our wishes? They are  elected to carry out our  wishes, not theirs. He also  stated more users should turn  out to the meetings and make  their wishes known and to get  to know the trustees.  Well, we turned out to the  last meeting to make our  wishes known and got to know  the trustees real well. We saw  them completely disregard  Roberts Rules of Order and  ^  Capuchino  , _*    & Espresso  A different  SPECIAL DINNER  every day.  We pack Hearty Lunches!

Marine Drive Gibtont Landing'  Appreciation  Editor:  My wife and 1 would like to  express our deep appreciation  for the help and support given  to us by many, many people  during the last few days. Never  in my life have I seen such an  outpouring of compassion.  Heartfelt thanks to the PEP  committee and all of those who  came forward so generously to  assist.  Al Jamieson  refuse to allow motions.  People were hammered down  and given five minutes to  speak. Had old Idi Amin been  present he would have blushed with shame.  Just how we are supposed  to make our wishes for the  majority of users know if we  are not allowed to make  motions is not clear. No  explanations were given as to  why our taxes were raised  300% and the developers  left at the same rate it has  been for years.  Two of the trustees and an  ex-trustee have subdivided  and have lots for sale. Another  ex-trustee holds a large  acreage suitable for subdividing. I believe this is the  reason that the capital charge  has remained fixed. If so this  is a direct conflict of interest.

The not-so-obvious reason  for insuring to value is the Co-  Insurance Clause. It is found  in almost all residential and  commercial Fire insurance  policies and can limit the  amount payable on a claim.  You should, of course,  insure to the full amount  whenever possible, but you  must always insure to at least  the Co-insurance limit.  The standard Co-insurance  clause states that unless you  insure to within 80% of the  insurable   value,  (ie:  the  adequate.  SUNSHINE COAST INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD.  Box 375, Cowrie Street  Credit Union Building  Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0  885-2291  replacement cost of your  home) any claim submitted  can be pro-rated.  Let's assume that thc replacement cost of your home  is $50,000. As long as you  insure to at least 80% of this  amount ($40,000 or more)  any claims will be fully  covered up to the amount of  the policy. If however, you  only insured for $30,000, you  would have breached the  contract and your claims  would only be 75% covered  (the amount of coverage  divided by the minimum  acceptable amount). Not a  good situation.  As you can see, insuring to  value is extremely important.

Coast News, August 19, 1980  THE TIMBER TYRANT  PART 111  One day at noon as we are  eating our lunches, Tully, to my  surprise, begins to open up a  bit. "Overheard a couple ofthe  boys talking about me the other  day" he says. "Reckon you  fellers think I'm a fool for  letting Ominec boss me around  like he does." His slow voice is  dead serious and there is a  vague note of injury in it.  "Hell, no". I lie quickly "but  you've got to admit he works  you preliy hard. Christ, Tully,  why don't you just pack upand  take off? Hire oul someplace  further up the Coast where he  can't find you'.'"  "Ain't lhat easy", he says. "I  still owehima lot of money and  he'd track me down lor sure.  There's Ihe old woman and the  kids to think about too. Hut  don't gel thc idea that 1 like it. I  believe in paying my debts but  as soon as I gel square with the  bastard. I'm long gone for  sure." Ihere is anger burning  under the words like a ground-  lire. Big Ox Tully has feelings  after all. I chide myself for  imagining otherwise.  This seems to be all he  intends to say about the matter  and wc munch our sandwiches  in silence. Just before start-up  time. Tully turns to me again.  "That's a damn shaky stack of  logs you guys have got there"  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  he says, indicating my snag-  dependent, mare's nest of a  pile. "Wouldn't take a hell of a  lot to shake her loose. Be  careful, hear."  "You bet!" I say. And I climb  about that precarious log heap  mure warily than ever. Miraculously, Ihe stubborn old fir  holds.  Chris, meantime, is having  no shortage of problems on Ihe  trackside tree. While Ominec  generally leaves the cold-  decker alone in deference to  Finn Billy, he is prone to  interfere with the other yard-  ing-operation. He has a maddening habit of walking out  into the woods and trying lo tell  the hooktendcrs iheir business.  No hooker worth his salt is  going to long stand still for this  sort of high-handed nonsense.  As a result, he has gone  through three of them in as  many weeks. Several chokermen have come and gone also.  Chris has hung-in, along with  the emaciated whistle-punk.  Ominec has been reasonably  civil to him, up to this point  and, with the constant turnover, he has been getting some  useful experience in tending-  hook.   His  latest  chokerman  quits along with the third  disgruntled hooker and Chris is  left alone on the rigging again.  That morning, he is faced  with the grandaddy of all  impossible hang-ups. He has  tagged two chokers together to  reach a big fir log. The turn has  plunged down the hill, dived  around a huge cedar stump and  over the edge of a small rock-  bluff. Tiere is no way lo go  ahead,' ull the turn back or get  slack on the chokers. The  stump is far too huge and  deeply-rooted to pull. There  seems only one solution. Chris  walks into the machine, gels the  wire-axe and hammer and  chops off one of the chokers.  He sends the troublesome log  in and the rest of Ihe day passes  without incident.  He has just finished telling  me about it in the bunkhouse  that night, when Ominec comes  storming in. "What the hell's  this I hear about you cutting a  damn-near new choker?"  "Jesus!", says Chris in  surprise and indignation, "the  bloody thing was jaggery and  worn-out. And anyhow, there  wasn't a damn thing else I could  do."

"I'll be goddamned!" says  Chris. "I've never heard the like  of this! It'll be a pleasure to get  the hell out of this haywire  frigging place!"  It is pettiness beyond belief  and a good deal more than  mere brotherly loyalty aligns  my sympathies solidly with  Chris. "You'd better make out  my time too", I say. We have  just finished the dangerous pile,  hung a skyline to swing it out  and are ready to move machine. The next setting is  supposed to be on easy ground  but who gives a good goddamn? We spend one last night  in lhat scrofulous bunkhouse,  pick up our pay from the  timekeeper, thc following morning and head for the Valley-  mouth Hotel. Since there is no  Union boat due in until the  next day, wc rent a room and  proceed to try and break the  local beer-drinking record.  Nexl morning, wc are back  in the bar, sick, sober and  gagging down eye-openers. The  downcoast steamer is due in  about an hour. Abstractedly,  we watch a seaplane land at  Ominec's camp and very shortly, take off again. "Maybe  someone else has pulled the  pin", muses Chris. "He'll have  no one left around that outfit  pretty soon except Bill and Ox  Tully."  "Maybe not even them" I  say, thinking of Tully's slow,  hurt voice.  At that moment, Finn Billy  enters the bar. Since it isn't  even noon yet, we eye him in  surprise. He comes over sits  down and grabs the closest beer  like he needs it.  "Don't tell me you bunched  her too", says Chris.  "No. The camp's down.  Ominec got hurt pretty bad.  They just flew him out."  "What the hell happened?" I  ask. Somehow, I know what he  will say.  "It was that rickety, goddamn colddeck-pile. 1 guess  you were lucky to get off hef  with your ass in one piece.  Tully and I went back to start  swinging the goddamn thing.  About the third turn, something shifted and that bloody  snag went down. Half the pile  took off down the hill like a  crazy avalanche. Never saw  anything like it. Godawful  roaring and crashing and big  cedars smashing to ratshit. (I  can see it clear in my mind as he  tells it; see myself riding that  logslide down to become a  mangled statistic. 1 shudder.)

At the Twilight  The return of a recent  smash success and the remake  of an enduring classic are the  featured films at the Twilight  Theatre this week.  Kramer vi. Kramer starring  Dustin Hoffman and Meryl  Streep is the much acclaimed  and very moving study of a  modern marriage breakdown  and the difficulties faced by  a father in the role of a single  parent. It is frequently funny  and frequently very touching  with excellent honest portrayals by the principals.  Hoffman, in particular, has  not had a better role since he  first burst into public view in  The Graduate.  Kramer vs. Kramer will be  shown at the Twilight Theatre  Wednesday through Saturday,  August 20-23.  The remake of an enduring  classic is the third of three  versions made of John Buch-  an's classic thriller The 39  Steps. This version features  David Warner, Eric Porter and  John Mills. Those who have  not met The 39 Steps before  should consider this film a  must. Older friends of the  story will be interested in  seeing how this version  compares with previous versions.  In this version Robert  Powell stars as Richard  Hannay, a South African  mining engineer visiting London in 1914. Hannay becomes  a pawn in a German plot to  assassinate a Greek premier  and precipitate war.  A neighbour in his building,  Colonel Scudder played by  John Mills is killed and  Hannay is arrested by the  police. The subsequent events  see Hannay hunted through  the moors of Scotland and the  film climaxes in the tower of  Big Ben.  The 39 Steps will be shown  at the Twilight Theatre Sunday through Tuesday, August  24-26.  nues, "Ominec was driving  back towards camp around  that time. He saw the logs  coming for him and floor-  boarded her. He goddamn near  made it out from under. Then a  big hemlock rammed his pickup and knocked it ass over  teakettle into the weeds. He's  got a broken leg, a bunch of  busted ribs and maybe concussion. Be in hospital for quite  awhile."  /'  ,lk "Jesus!" says Chris. "I've got  no use for the bastard but I  wouldn't wish that on anyone."  I don't say anything. I'm too  busy pondering the fatefulness  of it. After all, I had in effect,  set the trap that closed on Hans  Ominec. But then, I could just  as easily have been caught in it  myself. The Union boat is  approaching and there is no  more time for talk or philosophizing. We say goddbye to  Finn Billy and take our leave of  the Cataract Valley.  About a year later, I run into  Finn Billy on the skidroad.  He's been on a drunk for days  and looks well on his way to  becoming part of the permanent Hastings Street scenery.  But he recognizes me right off  the bat and we go for a beer at  the West Hotel. Our talk soon  gets round to Ominec and  Cataract Timber. Billy squints  at me through the booze.  "Never did tell you guys the  whole story on that" he confides. "It was no bloody accident.  I wasn't on the pile at the time.  Tully hooked up the first turn. 1  told him to start on the top side  and take the strain off the snag  gradually. Instead, he hooked  onto a couple of logs right by  the old fir. Not sure he didn't  even take the choker around it.  He must have had a good  hunch it was ready to go and it  sure as hell did! 1 can't swearhe  did it on purpose but he must  have seen Ominec's truck  coming. I never said anything  when it happened. Didn't want  to land the guy in any grief. Old  lady Ominec sold the camp  right after that. Got out of the  timber business. Hear Tully's  up in the Charlottes doing real  good. Ominec's still on crutches. Can you spring for  another beer, kid?"  by Rae Elllngham  Week   commencing   August  19th. General Notes:  Upcoming Full Moon in  Pisces opposes Mercury indicating a weekend of restless,  emotional, sensitive conditions. This planetary configuration often coincides with  communication problems so it  may become difficult to express  feelings with the appropriate  words. Hospital emergency  wards will be busier than usual  attending to persons with  imagined complaints or upsets.  Action planet Mars prepares  to leave Libra and will soon  direct our energies into hereto  neglected or forgotten life  departments.  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  Full Moon highlights your  desire to be alone for a while, to  enjoy peace and quiet undisturbed in favourite secluded  place. However, constant,  trivial interruptions may force  you take phone off the hook,  bolt doors and pretend you're  not around. Weekend stomach  upset may be linked to needless  worries, fears and doubts.  Mars urges you to complete all  business and partnership transactions.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  Full Moon spotlights emotional assessment of your long-  range plans, hopes and goals.  Friends, acquaintances, local  groups or officials will present  too many ideas and suggestions  concerning your next move.  Surprise get-together with old  companion produces tears,  laughter, well-rehearsed jokes  and yarns. Mars promises to  ease current hard work or  drudgery.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 1\)  Full Moon brings rewards  for recent sacrifice and perse-  verence. Boss, superior will be  extra-sensitive to your need for  further recognition and accomplishments. Prepare to make  nervous, impromptu speech  disclosing the secrets of your  success. Worthless, idle chatter  where you live is source of  weekend irritation. Mars winds  down hectic social activities.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  Full Moon reinforces your  life philosophy, religious or  spiritual beliefs. Others may  declare you have too much to  say regarding contemporary  lifestyles, 'right and wrong', the  way things should be. Expect  long-distance communication  mix-ups. Mars encourages you  to hammer away al those  unfinished domestic projects.  Venus brings increased charm  and popularity to those born  July I - 9.  LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)  Full Moon announces results of close associate's speculative cash venture. Looks like  you and loved one face indecision regarding shared financial  commitment. Postpone signing  final agreements till next week.  Don't make a fuss over miscalculated bill at weekend place of  amusement. Mars says highway driving and conversations  with relatives still require  caution and common sense.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Full Moon draws attention  to passing communications  upsets with business partners,  close companions or loved one.  Mercury's position in your sign  coincides with poor memory,  silly misunderstandings, trifling disagreements. Blurting  out the wrong word is embarrassing. Virgo persons born  around Aug. 23 become incoherent or tongue-twisted. Mars  assures calmer financial negotiations.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Full Moon focuses on niggling health or employment  matters. Seems you'll worry  unnecessarily over trivial job-  scene details. Weekend medical  upset may be result of overindulgence in food, drink and  merry-making. Mars, about to  leave your sign, presents last  chance to start new project or  assignment. Oct. 17-23 birthdays experience surge of fresh  energy and courage.  SCORPIO ( Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Full Moon highlights restless  social activities, confusing  pleasures and pastimes. Next  weekend's get-together finds  everyone talking at once,  interrupting one other, determined to be heard. Romantic  proposal hints of indecision  and deception. Child in your  life now needs extra love,  sympathy and reassurance.  Mars says attend to last-minute  details ready for new, two-year  action cycle starting next week.  SAGITTARIUS  (Nov.  23 -  Dec. 21)  Full Moon coincides with  nit-picking domestic concerns.  Prepare for passing emotional  upsets where you live. Sponger  snaring your living space  continues to whine and natter  over nothing. Nevertheless,  your place is the best place for  noisy weekend party. Realize  landlord or real estate agent is  all talk and no action. Mars  makes sure battle with local  group or official ends next  week.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan.  19)  Full Moon spotlights irritating, short-distance communications. Prepare for fussy  phone calls, hard-luck stories  and embarrassing requests.  Dump into garbage any sarcastic notes or correspondence.  Your memory is presently poor  so write lists, jot down names,  dates and data. Check gas-tank  before start of short trips. Mars  guarantees no more trouble  from envious competitors.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb.  18)  Full Moon mixes up matters  linked to personal possessions  and finances. Check location  of purse, wallet, small items  and I.D. Don't leave valuables  unattended at weekend social  event. Expect bank account  botch-ups and packages you  never ordered. It's the wrong  time to buy second-hand  articles or used car. Mars  insists you keep quiet aboul  your life philosophy, beliefs  and convictions.  PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) I  Full Moon in your sign finds  you moody, restless, indecisive  and sentimental. Others will  roll their eyes at your incessant  talking and over-concern for  your petty problems. Loved,  one will pin-point more faults  than usual. Simple advice is to  think before you speak. Lunar  position affects most strongly  those born around Feb. 22..  Mars says last chance tocorner  person who's borrowed too.'  much.  For all your Carpets  ���MM Off the shelf  by John Moore  As stockpiles of beer  dwindle and no end to the  current beer strike can be  accurately predicted, your  tastes in summer reading  matter may understandably  shift from the entertaining to  the instructive.  One positive side-effect of  the semi-annual drought of  B.C. beer, may well be a  renaissance of the art of  brewing. In some quarters,  it's already begun. Some  people got tired of being held  to ransom by the brewery  workers and skyrocketing prices ten years ago.  (Remember when four draft  and one for the waiter cost you  an even buck? Or when you  could get a small beer for a  dime?)  Beer is one of man's most  ancient foods. Osiris, the  Egyptian god of death and  resurrection, is credited with  having taught  humanity  to  flagon of honey-beer to break  down their inhibitions and  allow their inclinations to take  their natural course.  Well, you don't have to be  a barbarian or a newlywed to  enjoy a glass of suds and in  spite of the fact that brewing  has become a high art,  particularly in central Europe,  over the past few centuries,  you can learn how to make  your own.  If you're seriously considering making your own  beer, the first step would be  to consult Ian Corrance's  article on the subject in the  February 12 issue of this  year's Coast News. Ian got  most of his information from  Evelyn and Hank Neufeld,  known to make a good local  brew. (If you want a copy of  article, drop by the Coast  News office and get a copy  made next door at Sunco  Printing.)  If you want to try a few of  the many and varied versions  of the brown brew, there are  books available on the subject,  though they're a little hard to  find. The Bookstore in Sechelt  has a couple of books on this  subject on order and they  should be in soon.  In Gibsons, you can find  books and pamphlets on the  subject, as well as beer-  making supplies, at The  ijnHlng General Store. Look  for a book called The Art of  Making Beer, by Stanley F.  Anderson and Raymond Hull.  (Academic Press Canada.  $2.50). There is also a pamphlet put out by Wine-Art  which contains recipes and  instructions for everything  from stout to lager. One of the  recipes is for, appropriately,  a beverage called "Sunshine  Lager", a brew incomparable on a sunny September  day, but seasonless in its  simplicity". Enough said.

'  Channel Ten  That puts the invention of beer  somewhere back in the mists  of prehistory, but the Egyptians can't claim exclusive  ' credit for the creation of suds.  Virtually every culture, no  matter how primitive, possesses some traditional recipe  for native beer, based on  whatever roots or grains are  locally available, but native  beers are made by a process of  natural fermentation avoided  by modern brewmasters.  The Vikings who ravaged  northern Europe in the 10th  Century fuelled themselves  for the task with Mead, a  honey-based native beer. The  original formula for mead has  never been definitively established, but several companies  are now marketing a non-  carbonated version of the stuff  that is probably as close as  you need to get.  The Vikings were so fond of  mead that their idea of  paradise was to die with their  boots on and be transported  to Valhalla, the beer-parlour  of the gods, where buxom  Valkyries, the "choosers of  the slain", doubled as waitresses and all the heroes and  gods sat around swapping  lies, kicking over the tables  and quaffing horns full of  mead until the universe caved  in.  Mead, however, didn't always lead to anti-social  behaviour on a continental  scale. The honey-beer also  gave us the gentler concept  of the "honeymoon", an  Anglo-Saxon tradition that  dates from the time when kids  were married off as soon as  they were physically mature.  In order to overcome the  ignorance, inexperience and  timidity of such occasions,  couples on their wedding-  night were fortified  with  a   v f,  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday   2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.

Having just celebrated our  first year of operation, much  has been reflected upon about  the past year and about the  arts on the Sunshine Coast.  The Arts Centre has primarily  featured resident, artists and  one of the more evident  aspects noted throughout the  year is just how many talented  artists we have on the Sunshine Coast. Some have  become well known to us over  the years and others are  emerging as new and promising names.  Gay Gordon and Sarah  Scythes arc two artists living  in Roberts Creek and who  have never exhibited their  work on the Sunshine Coast;  actually they have never  exhibited anywhere. Their  upcoming show at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre Aug.  26-Sept. 7, will be the first  time the public will see the  work of these two devoted and  talented artists. So here we  have two resident artists who  are virtually unknown for their  artwork. A surprise is in store.  Gay Gordon hails from  Ottawa and moved to B.C.  in 1976. Sculpture is her  medium, for after her first  experience with three dimensional art in high school,  the decision to be a sculptor  was made. Gay proceeded to  attend    Algonquin    College  from 1973 to 1975 taking art  courses.  Since moving to B.C., Gay  reflects that her art has  become more formulated in  direction. She lived in an  isolated area of the interior  where her inspiration emerged from inside rather than  as a response to outside  influences or current artistic  movements.  Material utilized is lead,  carved plaster, ivory and  stone and subject matter  focuses on the human form.  Scale of the %ork varies from  full-sized    ledb    figures    to  miniature highly detailed carved necklace pieces.  Sarah Scythes is also from  Ontario and relocated in B.C.  in the 1970's. She has no  formal education in art and  has drawn sporadically  throughout her life. Recently  she has begun to work seriously to develop her talents.  Both artists are exhibiting  for the first time and are  pleased and comfortable to  be doing so together.

Egmont has been invaded by  cougars I And that's not far  from the truth. Hungry young  cougars have more than  bothered three prominent  families in Egmont. Last week  Ann West, Johnny's daughter  in law, of West's Marina,  became not overly concerned  as her ducks began disappearing from under her nose.  She decided four gone was  enough so she called johnny  and he tracked the culprit to  underneath Billy Griffith's  boat-shed. Well! let me tell  you, Johnny and Iris Griffith  got together and called thc  RCMP in Sechelt who called  Fish & Wildlife in Burnaby  who phoned Dennis Pemble in  Abbotsford. I phoned there  Friday night and got Karen,  Dennis' wife, and she filled  me in on lots of good stuff.  Dennis is the Wildlife  Control Officer for Region II  (Lower Mainland). He traps  coyotes, deals with bears,  cougars etc. and has three  incredible dogs. One purebred  Red Bone Hound and two  others who are mixed between  Red Bone, Bloodhound and a  trace of Blue Tick. Dennis shot  the cougar under the boat-  shed. Karen said their funds  don't allow them to consider  tranquillizing and flying this  type of animal to another area.  She added that the cougar  season is still wide open from  April 1st to March 31st and  the limit is two per person  with a licence. Karen also said  that the cougars are far from  being an endangered species  in this province. The only  other thing we talked about  was who got the hide. Karen  didn't know and queried,  as I did, as to who really  benefits from our taxes.  At one point Ann phoned  the CBC and asked them if  they were using a live cougar  on location. When they said  no, she exclaimed, "Oh my  God, it's a real one!"  Now get this! Leonard  Silvey lives in Old Egmont and  shot another hungry young  cougar at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. He had missed his  dog Rusty and the cat the  night before and that aroused  his suspicions. A bit of research thc next morning, with  a shotgun, produced a cougar  67 inches from the nose to  Ihe tip of the tail. Leonard's  wife Betty suggested that the  cougar could have swum  from the peninsula side to her  side and Edna Howitt concurred. Edna said she has  seen cougars swimming and  they are powerful swimmers  indeed.  In other news, it was good  to see Albert Hodgson up for  a return engagement in  Egmont from Vancouver. It  was neat to see him shooting  the bull with Al Fawson at  Egmont's downtown intersection for about two hours  last week. Looked like old  times again.

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  by Ruth Forrester 885-2418  Naval Reunion.  Charles and Connie Hobbs  of Redrooffs have just returned from a most interesting  trip to the east where Charles  attended a reunion of the crew  who served aboard the ship  Algonquin during the second  world war. It was their first  gathering after thirty five  years and there must have  been much nostalgia when  these men got together.  Families were introduced and  got to know one another.  The location of this event  was at Halifax and the Hobbs  took advantage of the trip to  explore Nova Scotia and just  loved that part of the world.  During their stay they found  that they ate no meat at all  but enjoyed the delicious fish  dishes. They attended a naval  banquet along with two and  a half thousand other guests  and each guest was served  two huge lobsters - a real  luxury for us from the west.  The former captain of thc  Algonquin, who is now a  retired rear admiral, entertained thc guests at his  beautiful waterfront home at  Chestcr-by-thc-Sea which was  a particularly pleasant event.  Charles and Connie, along  with some friends rented a car  while   they   were   there   to  explore some more of the  country. They drove the Cabot  Trail and visited Peggy's  Cove and were most impressed with the friendliness  of the people in all the places  where they stopped off.  They also had a visit to the  Alexander Graham Bell museum at Beddock in Nova  Scotia where the Bell's summer home had once been and  found this to be a most  interesting stopoff. They returned to Toronto and while  there took advantage of the  opportunity to visit the always  famous Niagara Falls.  Another Trip East.  Alex Ellis has also recently  returned from a trip to Waterloo Ontario. Together with his  son Bob they drove from  Vancouver where they made  Salmon Arm their first stop.  They found it to be very hot on  that part of the journey where  the temperature hit around 97  degrees. At Calgary they  stopped off for a couple of  hours to visit with Bob's  grandmother who is in her  99th year and who was very  happy to see one of her  favourite grandsons. They had  a brief stop at Regina to visit  with Alex's oldest brother Jim  and then proceeded to Winnipeg for an overnight stay.  They took the southern route  via Michigan and arrived at  J)ie /(men  w wnceAn  We can't diminish the sense  of loss that accompanies a  death in thc family, but we  can lessen the burden of  making funeral and cemetery  arrangements.

Bob was moving  from Vancouver to take up a  position at Sir Wilfred Laurier  University teaching psychology. Alex did enjoy the  trip with his son even although it was a bit tiresome  driving 600 miles per day in  a small car.  Hawaiian Visitors.  While many people from  this area spend vacations in  Hawaii there are not too many  who come from the paradise  isle to this part of the country.  However, the Garnets of  Redrooffs had three couples  visiting them recently from  Waikiki and they had a  wonderful time here and loved  it. They spent most of the time  fishing and were quite lucky in  making some good catches.  Their biggest and best salmon  was caught at Hackeye Pass  where they nabbed a twenty  eight pounder. Aileen Garnet  had just returned from a trip  to Portland when the Waikiki  company arrived. Aileen had  driven her mother, Mrs.  Miller, home to Portland after  a visit to Redrooffs and was  in Portland during the second  eruption of Mount St. Helen.  They had a sensational view  of the mushroom cloud formation immediately following  the eruption.

We hope she's  feeling much better and hope  to see her home soon.  New residents to the area  are Rick and Mona Linger  and family. Rick and Mona  come from Mission, B.C. and  moved into the area in early  August. They have two  children, Collin 4 and a new  arrival to thc family as of last  Wednesday, Mark Hamilton.  Mark Hamilton Linger was  born on August 13th and  weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. Congratulations to the proud  parents.  The  Port  Mellon  Fire   Department.  The Port Mellon Fire Department was established in  1945 with a membership of  about 10 men. Three men who  were very instrumental in  the establishment of this fire  department were Art Greg-  gain, Ed Hume and George  Kannaugh. These three men  disassembled an old Mill  truck and, using the parts,  built Port Mellon's first fire  truck. In the early years of  the fire department there was  no firehall and the fire truck  was kept in the Puipmill  garage.  The firehall was built in  1953 and shortly thereafter  fire truck no. 2 was acquired,  a 1928 La France. In 1968 a  third truclt,, a 1952 GMC was  added.  Within the last year the fire  department has acquired yet  another fire engine, a 1980  Hub International. But with  the arrival of the new fire  engine, the old original fire  truck built in 1945 was sold.  Although the fire department was established to protect the mill and surrounding  communities, it is also ready  to assist the Gibsons Fire  Department when they require help and in 1973 the Port  SALE CONTINUES!  <5C%  erf  Tops  Shorts  Dresses  Playsets  Sun Dresses  Summer Skirts  1/3 OFF  Short Sleeved  Terri-Lure &  Velour Loungers  ���mm.  mm.

CALL 885-9310  APRIL STRUTHERS,  COMMUNITY SERVICES ASSISTANT  OR DIANE STAPLES  RECEPTIONIST,  FOR INFORMATION  some:  CSMHMM Carefree gardening  by Sandy  More on making cuttings of  plants, shrubs and evergreens. I peered valiantly  through my awful gardening  encyclopedia to find some  sane and sound advice on  talcing cuttings, which is  something I have been doing  successfully here on Slipshod  Acres for years. The tome  makes it all sound so complicated, so precise and  ticklish that most of us would  immediately abandon interest.  For years I have been snapping off branches that were in  the way and instead of throwing them out I have plunged  them as far into the ground  as they would go in the back  of the garden and I suppose  my success rate has been  about 60%. Here are my  homely tips requiring almost  no energy and even less care  and thought.  Please buy and keep handy  at all times a small package  of white rooting hormone  called "Root Tone", (about  $1.50). Flowering Shrubs:  Mock Orange, pink Weigela,  Bridal Wreath, Duetzia, Laurel, Forsythia, Snowball and  many others with woody  stalks, simply cut off several  branches, remove the bottom  leaves and soak in water  overnight. Next morning dip  them in rooting powder and  push them into the ground  in a nether semi-shade section  of your garden. Keep them  fitfully watered and by spring  you will have new shrubs.  Yes, it really is that simple. In  fact in many instances you can  yank out a bottom branch and  get one already rooted, your  new shrub is ready made.  Why complicate a simple  process?  If you want a Willow tree or  Poplar, simply cut off a handy  branch (preferably with a nice  bend or swoop to it) leave it in  water for three weeks and  watch the roots grow. When  they have developed some of  the smaller side roots, plunk  exactly where you want it in  the garden and water twice  daily until it is established,  about a week. Keep Willows  and Poplars away from drainage tiling and septic tanks as  they are thirsty trees and will  complicate your piping. A  soggy hollow is ideal. Yes,  indeed, you can line a driveway with these lovely trees in  one year and you will be  astonished at what will be  there three years hence. You  can fill any area with flowering  shrubs in one year and it won't  cost a cent. For Lilac you yank  out a sucker that is already  rooted and you have a new  Lilac.  Evergreens: This includes  all the very expensive Horizontal Junipers both gold and  blue and most of the low  growing rockery shrubs as  well as the tall Cypress trees  since it only takes about ten  minutes why not try them all.  For these you take a short  snippet of new growth where  the wood is still soft, dip it in  root tone and pop it into a  reserved area in your garden.  Inspect and water at least once  a day until our monsoon hits.  Then it is all in the hands of  nice mother nature.  When doing this make a lot  of cuttings so that you can  afford to lose about one third  'though you may be appalled  at the number you will get and  two seasons from now you will  be able to be terribly generous  at the local Bazaars and fund  raisers.  The evergreens do take a lot  longer and you should allow  about two years before you  consider transplanting to a  permanent position in your  garden. Layering is another  method for these plants but  I don't think it is that much  faster and layered shoots are  easier to forget because they  are not set aside.  Layering, pulling of low  growing shoots: Nick the  underside with a paring knife,  dip the nick in root tone, push  it 6 inches under the soil;  anchor it with a brick and pull  up the remainder of the shoot  for air and don't forget that  it will need a bit more water in  spite ofthe fact that its mother  plant is providing it with  necessities. We want those  roots to form. In two years  cut the umbilical cord and  there is your new shrub.  I definitely have had better  success with straight new  growth cuttings because I  never forget them. There you  have it, all very simple and  almost no time at all. Happy  Multiplying.

She Luas working as a barmaid in the local inn and J got conned  into being in charge of the ladies washroom into which busloads of ladies  charged at a great rate of knots after having viewed the rushing waters of  Cheddar Gorge and after having drunk ladylike glasses of Somerset cider.  It was all very educational ladies tend to become quite chatty after a few  glasses of cider and I became quite knowledgeable on the subject of female  complaints. When there was a lull in the traffic, I would wander off to the  bar where Martha would give me a little refreshment and where the local  tads would give us the eye and deposit tokens of their affection on the bar  cheese, of course, apple turnovers from the bakery, fresh carrots from the  garden and then one night just at closing time the two most likely lads  deposited a newspaper wrapped parcel and saidtheyd be in for suppei the  following evening as it was our night off. "Yes, yes', we cried eagerly, When  we eventually arrived home we unwrapped the parcel and there sat a  rabbit skinned and gutted. Our eargerness evaporated swiftly. Martha  was a history student, not known for her culinary skills and I had only  adventured as far as apricots and apple sauce in my delvings into Home  Economics. We decided to tuck it and ourselves away jor the night.  Over the breukfust table, Martha muttered incoherently about serfs and  stew I muttered about scrumpy. Something inspired us fiowevet and bv tlw  time the likely lads appeared, we had chopped the rabbit up and made a  stew which the likely lads said was the best rabbit slew they'd ever tasted, It  proved to be a most memorable euening and if I need to feel young and  silly- there's just nothing like rabbit stew and a glass of cider!  RABBIT STEW   serves 4  / rabbi/, cur up  2 rashers bacon  4 medium potatoes  2 medium carrots  2 medium onions  2 - 3" sprigs rosemary  2 - 3" sprigs thyme  2 cloves  6 peppercorns  I bay leaf  4 sprigs parsley  1 teaspoon salt  I wine g/ass red wine  I' _ tablespoons flour  1.

I'm  surrounded by Leos in the family and staff.  Two years ago, I did a Shop Talk about achieving the  age of seniority and for a moment I thought people had  remembered,���but then I thought to myself, "that's  nonsense,���none but family would remember!"  By late afternoon certain happenings made it  apparent there was something in the wind. Liz, Ron and  family arrived home a day early off holidays; Graham  wondered if I would be home at 4 pm. and when I  expressed a doubt, he commanded me to be home by 5  o'clock. By 6 o'clock a barbecue was lit,���tables and  extra chairs set up, friends and store employees started  arriving.  It was a surprise indeed and pleasant for Joyce too,  who held court in her bedroom. Gatherings of family and  close friends have been a frequent occurence in our life  but, as can be appreciated, this was a very special  occasion. In the midst of tragedy and sorrow, the  pressures and tensions of life can, and need be  alleviated.  Two years ago, I celebrated my birthday by giving a  loaf of bread to every senior citizen that signed my  birthday cards. The were huge,���one at each checkout.  I'm not so interested in counting the birthdays any more,  although it is nice to be remembered each anniversary.  This year, as we and many of our friends have faced  the dreaded cancer, our thoughts go out to that young  man, Terry Fox, whom we all have read about. His run  across Canada to raise money to fight cancer has, I am  sure, stirred us all. We should not only laud his efforts ���  we should dig down, each one of us a little, to help him  achieve his goal.  For the next two weeks,���that is to August 31st, I want  my friends and customers to donate the value of their  empty pop bottles to the Canadian Cancer Society���and  our store will match your contribution dollar for dollar.  But, please NO cans,���just bottles.  If you wish to do this, simply tell the cashier,���"I'm  donating my empties to the Cancer Society." She will  write up the amount, and we will report the results.  My best to all of you and a 'tip of the hat' to all Leos.  $50.00 GROCERY DRAW!

Playing  straight golf, Ed Pinkerton  carded a low gross of 42 for 9  holes. Low net was taken by  Art Kiloh with a low 29! Al  Boyes and Archie Dove look  only 16 putts for 9 holes.  Wednesday Twilite had a fair  turnout with Wolfe Reiche  shooting a low round of 37 to  take low gross honours. Bob  McKenzie took a low net 32.  Walt l-allilar won most points  in thc par point section with 19.  A hot putter in the hands of  Bob Emerson with 14 putts for  9 holes, showed the way in the  putting contest.  Ihe ladies played a Blind  Hole Competition with Vera  Munro's round ol 51 proving  the winner. I.eilu Comrie shot a  52 for 2nd place. To arrive at  these scores, #2 and #7 hole  scores were removed from thc  golfers total score. Eleanor  Dunn used only 14 putts in the  Count Putt Competition with  Vivian Woodsworth taking 17  putts for 2nd place.  The 1st round of the Senior  Men's Championship Tournament left several players in  contention, to continue towards the Club Championship.  On Thursday our club journeyed to Seymour for an inter-  club game. Our 1st encounter  at home. Sunshine Coast Club  managed an extremely close  win. Seymour reversed Ihis  decision quite easily at their  home course. As usual, thc  hospitality shown to our members was exceptional. Thc  trophy in the form of an oil  landscape painting, done by  our own Jim Budd will have to  grace the walls at Seymour  Club House for this year.  The lack of water on our  fairways is evident by the dry  burnt out appearance that is  prevalent at the present time.  The need for a larger but costly  water system is clearly indicated, perhaps over the desire  for a larger playing area and a  more pretentious clubhouse.  Some clear and decisive decisions will have to be considered soon.  Our popular bridge and crib  nights will be starting soon. See  your Club Divot for dates.  The Host and Hostess Tournament will be held on Sunday,  Aug. 24. Sign up for reservations at the Club House.

Weldwood & Cedars in  fastball finals rematch  It could be a repeat of the  1979 finals, which went the  full five games, to decide the  Coast Men's fastball champions.  The first place Cedars Inn  reached this year's finals with  a two game sweep over fourth  place Wanderers. Cedars  edged the Wanderers 6-5 in  game one, and rolled to an  easy 13-3 victory in the second  game.  : In the other series, it was  Ken-Mac winning game one  by a 6-5 score, scoring four  runs in the bottom of the  seventh inning. In game two,  Weldwood rebounded with a  strong 4-2 game forcing  the third and final game.  Weldwood, while being out-  ;hit by Ken-Mac, made fewer  ;errors and scored decisive  runs when they needed to,  ��� to squeak out a 7-5 victory  -over a game Ken-Mac club.

Should   that   happen,  game four would return to  Sechelt Tuesday Aug. 26, and  game five, if necessary, at  Gibsons Thursday Aug. 28.  For exciting fastball play-off  action, see you Tuesday at  Brothers Park, Gibsons!  Local girl 2nd  at summer games  20 year old Patricia Gurr of  Roberts Creek took second  place in the Novice class  synchronized swimming event  at the B.C. Summer Games in  Kelowna on Friday.  Ms. Gurr and her coach,  Margo Divine, both work as  instructors and lifeguards  at Gibsons Pool.  With the end of the summer  holidays approaching, Sechelt's 1980 Parks and Recreation Programme is slowly  winding down.  The Sechelt Marsh crew  spent the last week putting the  final touches on the trail and  cleaning up. By next week  there should be handrails  on all the bridges and a new  set of steps into the north east  end of the marsh beside the  monument.  Local baseball clubs that  use Hackett Park will be  relieved to know that this is  the week that the bleachers  and backstop should be  finished. It is fairly traumatic  to have your backstop ripped  out just at the end of the  season, but everyone has been  amazingly patient with us.  Our heartfelt thanks go to the  Weldwood team for their  understanding of our schedule. Even though it wrought  havoc with the playoffs, I'm  glad we started it when we  did. Like many projects the  bleacher and backstop recon  struction was complicated by  endless pitfalls.

These were to be  skidded out by the horses and  piled into what were referred to  as "skidways", so that they  would be easily accessible later  on in the winter and ready for  thc "sleigh haul" out on to the  frozen lakes. Actually I had no  part in these operations as I had  been assigned to the "main  road" gang with the Buck  Beaver in charge, but our job  was equally important as  without roads all these spruce  and pine trees would have had  to be left there to rot. We were  fortunate that, unlike many  west coast logging operations  which are carried on in precipitous country, our terrain was  fairly level and if there were any  hills they were of the gently  rolling variety and presented  few problems to the experienced sawyers and teamsters. The  roads our gang were hacking  through the forests invariably  followed the valleys of swamp  and muskeg, some of which if  particularly low and soggy had  to be "corduroyed", which  simply translated meant laying  small trees and logs across thc  swampy parts with brush  packed down between them so  that later on, when the roads  were iced, they would support  NOTICE BOARD       I.  886-2622  886-7817  Sponsored as a Public Service by the Coast News.

We worked that winter six  days a week and there was no  such thing as an eight hour day  or a forty hour week. Our  foreman l.arabie had us out  and about just as soon as it was  daylight and very rarely did  "Old John" call a halt to the  operations till the light had  started to wane and, if it had  been a particularly frustrating  day with very little accomplished, it was dark before we  reached camp, had a hasty  wash and our supper. Most of  us were in our bunks already  asleep when George, the bull-  cook, came around at 9 pm. to  extinguish the coal oil lamps  and we were still sleeping the  "sleep of the just" when he  returned to relight them at the  first clanging of the cook's  triangle, to be followed by a  second clanging fifteen minutes  later to summon us to breakfast.  Sunday was supposed to.be  not only the horses but the huge  loads of logs on the sleighs.  "Old John" the Buck Beaver's job was to keep the road  blazed out ahead of us and to  direct the operations. He  repeatedly told me to leave thc  bigger trees that had to be cut  to the more experienced members of the gang and to devote  myself to cutting the brush and  smaller stuff, but, just as  repeatedly I ignored these instructions and as soon as he was  out of sight and maybe a  quarter of a mile or so away  doing the blazing, I would  attack the nearest big tree in  sight and whittle away at it  from all sides in beaver fashion  till it fell. 1 well remember one  large obstinate birch that took  me half a morning to subdue  and. when it did come crashing  down, I least of all knowing in  whal direction it would go. it  narrowly missed some of the  others, scattering them like  startled jack rabbits as they  scrambled for safety. Is it any  of us who tried to keep  outselves clean and reasonably  free from the new type of insect  that soon appeared to plague us  and make our lives even more  miserable. There is no gentle  way of getting around it so 1  will come right out and state  the truth. These lumberjacks  were a dirty verminous crowd  and many of them only owned  one suit of underwear which  they wore when they arrived  and neither changed nor took a  bath the whole time they were  up there. Put simply, the  majority of them were as lousy  as pet coons and with such  infestation it was almost impossible for us, who wished  otherwise, to keep free of lice.  I well remember one Sunday  morning soon after the lamps  were lit, watching fascinated  while John Sevcrin, thc filer,  who occupied a bunk opposite  mc, opened up the front of his  longjohns and commenced a  vigourous hunt not only in the  seams of the said underwear  but in the forest of hairs lhat  covered his massive chest. It  wasn't very long before he came  up with what he was looking  for, a trophy-sized gray louse,  which he held between his  finger and thumb. Turning to  his bed partner to show him, he  remarded admiringly, "Sacre  Norn de Dieu - ca e'est un  maudit gros" and, believe it or  not, instead of crushing the  monster, he returned it back to  where it had come from! I can  only surmise that his reasoning  was that it was shame to do  . away with such a prize speci-  menand what did it matter, one  louse more or less made no  difference anyway!  The only answer for the few  of us to whom it did matter if  we were going to get any peace,  was to boil our clothes each  Sunday in the two halves of an  oildrum, that had been cut and  were mounted on stones, down  near the edge of the lake. The  bullcook usually provided the  kindling for the fires and we  replenished whatever wood we  used to keep our garments  bubbling for a half hour or so.  using a few flakes from thc  Lifebuoy or Sunlight soap that  could be bought in the commissary. "Old John" and I usually  .arose an hour or so earlier on  Police  News  RCMP in Gibsons report  that there have been a rash of  minor accidents in the mall  area. They ask that motorists  take a bit more care until they  get accustomed to the changes  in the traffic flow.  August 8th: A two-cylinder  gas  compressor  was  stolen  laundromat and. should the  day not be too frigid when wc  stripped off our underwear, wc  had a hasty swab down with thc  warm suds and water before the  others were awake to mock and  jeer at us for what seemed, to  them, a futile and totally  unnecessary chore.  In spite of all our efforts, we  still had lice on us when thc  camp broke up in the spring  and thc hotel and innkeepers,  who catered to the lumberjack  trade, were well aware of whal  we brought with us. They were  insistent that wc took a long  hot shower using carbolic soap  before they would let us into  their rooms.  It is useless trying to make  comparisons. That is what it  was like fifty or more years ago  and the only thing to do was to  accept conditions as they were  or stay to hell out of the  woods.

Exported at bargain prices  Our lost oil fortune  bt Date Barn-It  Less than eight years ago thc  multinationals told the federal  government that there was  enough oil in the ground to last  for decades. Thc Liberals  allowed those same companies  to export more than 2 billion  barrels of oil between 1970 and  I978.  In I970, the export price of a  barrel of crude oil was $2.69.  When OPEC tightened the  screws in I974 the Canadian  export price rose to $10.27. By  June of 1980 the world price  had reached $36.50, almost  fifteen times the 1970 level.  We now know that Canadian  reserves of conventional oil  will, at best, last for another  five to ten years. The resource  that could have fuelled our  industrial future was sold off  for bargain basement prices.  In 1973, Canada exported  ���420 million'barrels of oil for  $1.5 billion. Today that oil  would be worth a staggering  $15.3 billion.  If all the Canadian oil  exported between 1970 and  1978 had been sold at today's  world price we would have  gained extra revenues of  $66,848,000,000. almost sixty  seven billion dollars. As it is we  have neither the oil nor thc  wealth, just empty wells.  There is no use crying over  wasted oil, but there is a moral  to be taken to heart.  lt is an act of staggering  stupidity to sell off our precious  heritage of non-renewable  resources forlessthantheirreal  value.  Unfortunately this lesson has  not been taken to hcarl by the  bottom line financial wizards  of Social Credit, in the first six  months of 1979 alone, B.C. lost  $60 million in revenues because  our natural gas exports were  underpriced.  The price has since been  raised but. because of slumping  sales, the Socreds arc now  calling for a moratorium on  further increases.  As with oil, so with gas. A  valuable non-renewable resource is being sold off for a  quick buck.  I believe that our energy  resources should be conserved  to guarantee the long term  industrial future of British  Columbia and Canada. We  should only export those  reserves which are surplus to  our long term needs, and we  should charge the full world  price.  Thc fiasco of Canadian oil  policy cannot be repeated.  There is too much at stake.  Carl's corner  In search of a career  bv Carl Chrixmas  The new job at Rat Portage  Lumber was heavy work. It  required rolling 12 by 12  timbers from the outfeed end of  a timber sizer. Some of them  were up to 49 feet long, dressed  to exact sizes to be used in  bridge construction and heavy  frame structures all over the  world. B.C. limber was much in  demand for its high tensile  strength and durability in long  span construction and Rat  Portage was one of the big  exporters of quality structural  timber.  I would roll the timbers from  thc outfeed tabic onto carrier  blocks at the side, then mark  them with a stencil for pickup  and delivery to thc scow  loading ramp with thc name of  the company and the country  they were destined for. The  scow would then be towed to  the ship for loading. On  shipments that were going to  some exotic port I would write  my name and address, hoping  that someday I would receive a  card or a note in reply, lt never  happened, but I became very  sophisticated in the knowledge  lhat my name may be seen,  wondered about or maybe  remarked on by someone in  other parts of the world.  From this job I learned to  operate the timber sizer. and  later, the lumber carriers that  moved my loads to the scow  dock. Being young and curious.  I was given opportunities to  follow the dissection of a log  from the bullpen to the planer.  There is nothing more interesting or fascinating than to  watch an expert sawyer size up  a log, bully it around with  steam ram and log hook until  he knows where his first cut will  produce his best grade and high  quality wood, then open his  first incision like a skilled  surgeon with a shiny steel  scalpel.  The more 1 watched the  reduction of logs to lumber, the  more fascinated I became with  the logs themselves. During la  lunch break I would grab my  brown bag and head for the log  pond. The boom boss was an  old time logger and I soon  made his acquaintance. It  became a ritual to scoot down  there each day. ask him something about thc logging, then sit  back and listen while I munched my noon sandwich. He  seemed delighted to explain to  me the intricacies of making up  a boom of logs; how they were  sorted in the bullpen at camp  and stowed by selected species  in separate booms; how they  were trucked from the woods  over steep mountain roads  blasted through rock, hardpan  and timber.  He knew how the logs were  ROMAN CATHOLIC  SERVICES  Rev. Angelo De Pompa.

When I had a spare hour. I  would head for the bullpen.  grab a pike pole and give thc  boys a hand to feed the giant  firs onto the jackladder that  would lift them slowly up to thc  mill deck. When a new boom  was being pushed into place, I'd  push my guts out to help open  up the head stick, carry the  heavy steel boom chains to the  chain float, then help sluice the  new logs into thc bullpen. Just  talking across the boom with  old John as he inspected the  logs, pointing out a big fir that  some hooktender had fought  out of the woods by putting a  roll or a luff to jump her out  from behind a stump, was  adding to my logging education.  So this is where my love for  the woods began. Each day I  would listen to my friend's tall  tales of the woods and his  experiences in his heyday. Each  day I would ask a question that  was good for a detailed explanation.  The day he told me about the  high riggers job was the day 1  was most round-eyed. I soaked  it up like a sponge. In those  days the high rigger was the  idol of the woods. He was the  steely-eyed, nerveless, professional logger. His job was to  climb the tali firs, lop off the  branches on the way up, then  chop his way through two feet  of solid wood to fall that lofty  crown 130 feet to the ground  below.  He had to have the skill and  knowledge to read his tree on  the way up; to check each knot  for signs of rot or conk; to  recognize brittleness and senility that might make for a  dangerous spar that could  break under the tremendous  .strain   and   shocks  that   the  yarding function put upon its  200 years of maturity.  Last but not least, he must  know how to put his undercut  on the limb-heavy side of his  tree; know how much wood to  side notch to avoid a split tree  that could crush him in his  steel-cored rope.  He must know how to loosen  his spurs from the heavy bark  before the top goes so that he  can step quickly behind the  undercut and brace himself for  thc wild ride he is going to get  when that heavy crown of limbs  and   wood  kicks  itself loose  Such were thc beginnings ol  my logging eduction. It was  son of a training in reverse  from thc log pond to the  woods, rather than from the  woods lo the water.  My ex-logger friend had  been employed by one big  outfit during his years in the  woods so he didn't have much  time for the 'gyppo's'. His  advice was, "If yer goin' to tha  woods, lad, pick the big outfit.  They like young fellers who are  goin' ta stick an' they'll look  after ya!" And after a moment's  thought, added, "An' yer pay  cheque wont bounce, neither!"  A few years were to pass and  a variety of other jobs would be  added to my career before I  went to the woods, and when I  did. it was with a small part of  the action of a brand new  gyppo with a new Ford truck, a  used log trailer, an old AC  Tractor and a small truck load  of hand tools and cross cut  saws.

When I first read the press  release from John Cairns of  the Fisheries and Oeeans,  saying that two Japanese  lisliin^ vessels were going to  be allowed to fish in our  waters, 1 thought, Here we go  again.' so I phoned his office.  I talked to Bob Wowchuck  and he gave me the lowdown.  Two 50 metre gill nerters  are going to be fishing squid  outside the 12 mile limit to  determine if there is enough of  them to initiate a Canadian  squid fishing industry. The  Tenyu Maru started its two  week trip on July 31 and  picked up 86 tons. This was  more than expected. The Tomi  Maru should be starting its  trip about now.  Payment for this survey is  made this way. The first 50  Ions go to the boat and  anything over that is sold to  them. Also each ofthe vessels  will be allowed to catch 100  metric tons of black cod as  final payment. The press  release notes that the 200 tons  will not be taken from the  3.500 ton domestic quota.  A Canadian scientist will  be on board the vessels  directing operations.  Coast News, August 19, 1980  The creature that they are  after is called a flying squid  and weighs between one and  three kilos. From the amount  of complaints that are constantly heard about the state  of the fishing industry, it  might be a good idea to get  this new fisheries going on the  coast.  I was talking to Carl Chrismas about this. He phoned  Jim Brown, a friend of his and  I got on the extension. Jim is  not exactly in love with squids  at the moment. Apparently  they are killing his herring  when he goes mooching.  He fishes in Porpoise Bay  and has been finding that  when he checks his bait, it is  dead, and has a bite out of its  back. He wasn't sure what  was causing it until one of the  squids foul-hooked itself on  one of the hooks and came up  with the herring. From what  he says they come in in  schools generally in the  evening. He's noticed the  same thing at Davis Bay.  These ones are not the big  ones, that are about six inches  long, so don't be worried  about your toes while swim  ming.  This is the first time I've  heard about squids in these  quantities around here. Has  anyone else seen them?  Red Tide.  The results from tests  carried out, show that there  have been no new outbreaks  of parasitic shellfish poisoning  (PSP) in the Gulf since June  13 and toxic levels are returning to normal. This does not  mean that the field is open to  harvesting. What has been  opened is commercial harvesting. As each batch comes into  the plant it will be categorized  and tested. So the fisheries  are going to keep pretty close  tabs on it.  It's impossible for them to  monitor every beach, so  recreational gathering is still  out.  Alcan.  Well, it looks as if Alcan  does have to bend to pressure  after all. Being responsible  corporate citizens, (perhaps  the court injunction helped)  they have decided to modify  their expansion so that a  respectable amount of water  will flow in the Nechako  River, allowing the salmon to  spawn.  The premise that Alcan was  working on was that they had  made a water usage deal in  the '50's and they should still  be entitled to it, come hell or  low water.  This is reminiscent of an  interview on the Fifth Estate  program on TV. The reporter  asked the boss of Shell  (Canada) to explain how it was  possible for the oil company to  take all its profits from Canada  and transfer them into holding  companies in the Caribbean  thus avoiding massive payments to thc Canadian government. The executive's answer  was, "It's legal".  It's getting close to the time  when the words, right and  wrong, will be replaced in the  dictionary by, legal and  illegal.  Where the flsh are.  Gibsons is the hot spot  again this week. A 25 pounder  was taken by Sam Samson  mooching off Gower Point.  Lots of 4 to 5 pound cohos  are being caught on the  outside. Try Camp Byng and  Gower Point. Mooch between  15 and 30 feet.  Gary Noble of Noble Charters is the only one striking  gold consistently out of Lord  Jim's. The average Joe is  coming back with very few.  It's a hit and a miss situation at Horseshoe Bay. The  best place to try is Passage  Island. Another nice sized  spring was taken in the Hole  in the Wall.  At Irvines Landing the  weather has been pretty  rough, but if you want to  venture outside, Lasquiti and  Quarry Shoal are the places  to go.  Odds 'n ends.  Another cougar had to be  destroyed at Egmont. It killed  a cat and a dog before one of  the Silveys had to shoot it. The  conservation officer feels that  it was probably related to the  young one who was causing  a fuss up there a couple of  weeks ago.  A baby otter from Welcome  Beach has taken up residence  at the Vancouver Aquarium.  Its mother lost a run-in with  a local dog and the youngster  was too small to look after  itself, so it now has free room  and board.  The Fisheries in Pender  Harbour would like to remind  you that there is still a closure  on crab fishing in Pender  Harbour. This was missed  out of this year's fishing  guide, but is still in effect.  If you want to contact me,  call 886-2622, 886-7817 or  886-9151,ta.  rrot  Teredo Square - Sechelt.

Wc had been told where we  might find some passable  alpine meadows. What we  found was an area of beautiful  alpine lakes with crystal clear  water, meadows filled with  healhcrs, lupinand othercolor-  ful flowers, and easy hiking to  several peaks in order to be able  to survey thc area. Hiking,  mind you. not climbing; just  family type hiking.  The area compares to the  best that the mainland has to  offer say Black Tusk or Manning Park or the best that  Vancouver Island offers-  Forbidden Plateau. Thc difference is that these places are well  known,   you   expect  to  find  olher hikers, you expect to sec  man's impact on thc fragile  sub-alpine. In the area of our  discovery we found no other  hikers and only few traces of  previous visitors. While hikers  will always have some impact  on thc alpine environment, it's  preservation from non-recreational interests depends on the  hiker. Better to have trails and  lots of hikers practicing minimal impact or "camp and leave  no trace" ethics than to turn the  area over as a low return  logging operation.  The area we were in is the  valley between Tetrahedron  Peak and Panther Peak, with  thc lakes of interest being  McNair Lake and another  unnamed lake to the north cast  of McNair. The best access is  controlled by Canadian Forest  Products who were very cooperative in allowing us to get  onto the road.   The end of the road is about  I1/; km. from McNair Lake,  with the little used path from  there to the lake being fairly  rough but easy to find.  From McNair Lake one can  easily hike up Panther in three  to four hours ��� no technical  climbing just uphill hiking - a  beautiful trip.  Upper McNair is as pretty an  alpine lake as this writer can  remember - counting years of  walking the Rockies, the  Olympics, the Cascades and a  broad collection of other  places. Thc pass leading toward  Rainy River is breathtaking as  arc the mountains on both  sides. This area has all the hiker  can ask for.  Will it last? The people of  the Sunshine Coast, and those  who arc regular visitors owe it  to themselves to see thc area  and decide how it should be  used now and in the future.

It  dealt with an on the site report.  This week, two opposing  views on the validity of the  program are voiced.  by Ian Corrance  An environmentalist's view.  Merriam Doucet from Port  Moody has been campaigning  against the over-use of chemicals in the environment for  many years. Last year she  appeared as a speaker in a  forum at Elphinstone High  School in Gibsons. At that  time she was alerting the  public to the possible dangers  of 2,4-D spraying of the Hydro  right of ways.  She feels that sufficient  evidence is forthcoming from  a variety of sources to show  that 2,4-D is far from safe.  In fact she feels that more and  more tests are showing that  the chemical causes or enhances cancer, nerve disorders and birth defects.  Testing of 2,4-D has been  going on for many years. As  far back as 1963, U.S. federal  authorities have been conducting tests which were  showing cancers in the tissues  of treated rats. In 1966 an  independent laboratory, Bio-  netic laboratories in the U.S.  conducted cancer tests on  treated rats in 1966. There  was a 55% cancer rate in the  animals. The laboratory was  under contract to the National  Cancer Institute, who felt that  the results indicated that  2,4-D, "did not cause an  abnormal increase in Cancer". Doucet feels that the  public is being given a whitewash job, both in the U.S.  and Canada. In the recent  past, six studies have come  from Europe showing that  2,4-D is carcinogenic (cancer  causing). This brings the total  to nine independent studies.  Some of the comments from  public officials which Doucet  has collected during her  investigations are incredible  in their stupidity. A spokesman for the California Chamber of Commerce stated that  the only people against the  use of 2,4-D were the marijuana growers. In another  instance a federal official in  the U.S. told Doucet that the  tests conducted in the USSR  should be discounted as they  were conducted bv communists.

Recently in the U.S. pressure has been mounting  against the use of 2,4-D.  Thousands of ex-service  men who served in Vietnam  are presently seeking legal  council against their government for exposing them to the  Agent Orange. This was a  defoliant used in the Vietnam  confrontation and consists of  50% 2,4-D and 50% 2,4,5-T.  The servicemen are complaining of mental and nervous  disorders and birth defects  in their offspring.  On June 24th of this year,  Dr. Marc Lappe from the  California Department of  Health, told a seminar that  "People using 2,4-D are  risking permanent nerve damage, cancer and birth defects". His findings were from  studies done on seven people  exposed to the herbicide.  Lappe said that "six of the  Kennah stated that alternative methods were too  costly. Double-ringing was a  slow and uncertain method, he  said. Cutting the alders down  was also costly, plus numerous shoots could sprout  from a stump and these grew  rapidly. Falling the trees also  damaged any young trees  below, so was only possible  when there were no growing  merchandisable species sharing the site.  When asked if there was  any research into a mechanical  method to replace the double-  ringing with a chainsaw,  he said that as far as he  knew there was not.  Translocation (the movement of moisture within a  tree) goes in both directions.  In this way, he said, the 2,4-D  kills the trunk and branches  and the root system.

Why will they not accept  the offer of McKibbin and  Beecham to operate the office  at a saving of $10,000 per  year when they are operating  at a deficit of over $30,000  per year?

In any othef-'  constituency he would have  been relegated to the dung  heap of obscurity or even  worse, a Bay Street law office.  The American system is  gaudy, it is expensive, it even  seems on occasion frivolous,  but it is, in the truest sense  of the word, democratic.  When the Americans go to  the polls in November to  choose between a peanut  farmer and an ex-movie actor  they may not be choosing the  best possible person for the  job, but they will be choosing  a person who is representative  of the will of the people.  I won't make any predictions about the outcome.  As I said before, I only remember back to "Ike" in  1952, but it seems to me I  heard somewhere of someone  named Truman in 1948 and a  fellow named Dewey who  thought he was a shoo-in.

Ii\  I'lllll lli'rlirrmiilltl  Waiting in line for my turn at  the information booth at the  airport, trying to get a train  schedule. I was standing behind  what I initially surmised tobea  young garlic farmer, or a  member of a new religious cult,  which, lo ward off evil spirits,  annointed themselves with thc  secretions of this pungent  smelling, albeit popular fruit of  the earth. A lesson was to be  learned Irom my quick appraisal. Never judge a man by his  perlumc! As luck had it. this  young man was going to be of  immense help to me and play a  paramount part in a situation  that I can best describe as "The  190 franc train caper."  Hearing me stumbling  through my French, he came to  my aid in commendable English. Alter translating and  securing the information I  needed, il was established that  wc would be travelling on the  same train. He was a helicopter  pilot lor the French Army and  had just come from a small  border clash in Chad. He was  on his way to see his wife whom  he had not sec in three months.  The train was not to leave for  another lour hours, bul we  hopped on a mini bus and went  to the station anyway. We  proceeded to purchase our  tickets. Mine was about ten  dollars. Pierre, (for I cannot  remember his real name) asked  if wc could borrow a hand cart  for our belongings, since we  had so many heavy bags to  carry, and learned lhat each  passenger was only allowed to  carry on two suitcases of not  more than 30 kilograms each.  Any additional luggage had to  go by freight. This was news to  us. Well. 1 didn't care, what  were a lew francs here or there.  So we trudged off to the freight  office with the sails. Putting  them on the scales the charges  were figured out.  "That'll be 190 francs."  "You've got to be kidding," I  said. Pierre translated:  "No. he says, that's correct."  Well now. I have a distinct  dislike lor being ripped off,and  paying almost 50dollars lor80  miles of rail lor two lousy sail  hags, is just that a rip-oil!  Ihe airlines had charged mc  'zip.*  "Tell him we'll carry them as  hand luggage, and take our  chances getting caught."  Ihe line. Pierre was told,  would be double the price of  thc freight. I he Ireight agent  gave us that 'You'll be sorry'  I.mk .is lie waddled oft buckling uniler thc weight of the  sails 'Platform X' the tickets  stated. lhal was down three  llights. across the entire width  ol the station and hack up three  llights.  1 was sure glad to have Pierre  around. Wc laid the sails out of  sight, about as much as one can  hide two 1x2x5 foot bundles.  We still had three hours on our  hands, so 1 innted Pierre for a  couple ol drinks at thc station  restaurant. Since he'd helped  me save 190 francs, thc least 1  couk! do was spend it on  entertaining ourselves.  After an hour of beer swilling  wc were feeling pretty rosy.  Pierre hadn't eaten all day and  was getting rather hungry. He  ordered the   pecial': spaghetti.  his favorite, he said. When it  finally arrived, all talking  ceased. In utter amazement I  watched him attack his plate.  Both arms flailing away, feeding the pink conveyor belt  hanging from his mouth. When  he finally stopped long enough  to order a glass of water, I  speculated, its function was to  cool off thc cultlery. I had a  good laugh at his expense, and  ordered a few more beers.  By the time the train rolled  into the station, neither of us  were feeling too much pain. At  the slightest provocation we  would break out in raucous  laughter. The trick now was to  board the train with the sails  and hide them, which in our  condition became a monumental task. Wouldn't you know il,  as we came up onto the  platform, the conductor was  standing not 20 feet from thc  sailbags. talking to a small  group. We had to get past him  to get on the train. We tried to  lift one bag each, but they had  turned to lead during thc time  we were in thc restaurant. So  wc decided to carry one  between us. It was five minutes  to departure and the pressure  was on. We stood nonchalantly  next to the sails, ready to  explode with laughter, trying to  be as inconspicuous as possible, waiting for the conductor  lo turn away from us. He  finally did. and I gave the order  'Now!' We both bent down  simultaneously and jerked up  on the sailcloth tie that held thc  bags   together.   Snap!  Thud!  The bag hit the ground. The  conductor turned around in  time to see us collapse onto the  sailbag. I could heardly breathe  and tears were streaming down  /  my face. Watching the conductor out of the corner of my eye I  saw him boarding the train.  That was the sobering factor we  needed to get back on our feet.

DOWNTURN IN HOUSING TO CONTINUE  Canadians should not expect a recovery in housing starts, according to Lawrence  Smith, a University of Toronto economist and housing expert.  In fact the 1980's will bring a slow but persistent downturn in residential construction  because of declining family formations, increased housing costs relative to income  levels, declining government support and the absence of any demand backlog from  the 1970's.  Smith says the seventies was a period of strong demand fuelled by favorable  demographics and strong government support for low income housing as well as  general  home  ownership.  In contrast,  the  eighties will see less favorable  demographics due to the aging of postwar babies and absence of any significant  underhoused group.  The legacy of the seventies is an exceptionally high standard of housing in Canada  and there is a relatively small - if any - backlog of unsatisfied housing requirements to  sustain heavy new construction in this decade.  Smith estimates the rate of household formation, (family and non-family), will be  about 198,000 annually in the later years of the decade. This compares with the  average of 213,000 annually in the 1976 ��� 1981 period and is the major reason for the  shift towards decreasing housing starts. He also predicts the level of spending on  housing as a percentage of gross national expenditure will be down from the range of  5.5 to 6.5% as experienced in the 70's to 4.25 to 4.75% in the '80's.
