 ' /  The Sunshine  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, E.C.  V8V 1X4  82.1  December 7, 1981  Volume 35, Number 49  Published at Gibsons, B.C.    25- per copy on news stands  Pender Harbour hard hit  Storm savages Coast  A savage path of storm destruction was torn  through the Madeira Park area Friday evening,  December 4th, causing power outages from Sandy  Hook to Egmont. B.C. Hydro called in four crews  from Vancouver to help with the emergency repair  work to restore service in a disaster which was  described as worse than Ihe recent storm damage on  the Sunshine Coast three weeks ago.  Trees were uprooted, falling on lines and burning  and tearing out power poles. In Egmont, one pole  was pulled down and a transformer lost, when 27  trees fell onto lines. The worst damage was at  Madeira Park, where five poles were broken near the  Malaspina Ranch area. Uprooted trees and torn  wires blocked the road and heavy rains caused  flooding in the Garden Bay and Madeira Park area.  The following account of Ihe storm was written for  the Coasl News by Harbour resident Jane McOual.  Friday night's storm put power out at approximately 9:43 p.m. and it came on again early Sunday  morning. Once again business and homeowners faced total defrosts of valuable meat and freezer items,  while the question of how to stay warm and how to  eat (if dependent upon electricity) were dealt with in a  spirit approaching that of the pioneers.  Firemen were kept on alert checking on burning  trees, most of which had fallen across live wires.  B.C.

In Irvines Landing, Dave and Mabel Dakin's 12' x  56' house trailer moved 2Vi inches off its supports.  Dave estimated the gusts at that time (between 1:30  -4:30 a.m.) "were up to 75 or 80 mph". "Things sure  were shaking! and us too," said Mabel, "I didn't  want to go to sleep while Ihe wind was blowing like  that."  On Lee Road a small rock slide let loose and farther up Irvines Landing Road two Irees crashed  across the road making it impassable until residents  with chainsaws cleared the way.  This was also true for Garden Bay Road with four  major trees across it and Claydon Road, with two. At  Brian Schaefer's house on Claydon Road, a tree was  completely uprooted and landed across the roof.  Amazingly, there was no damage.  Everywhere, trees were uprooted rather than just  broken off and several residents described it as "like  a twister", ripping and twisting roots and trunks  right out of the ground.  . A^najor cause of the power outage was a large  cedar' tree which fell across the lines near Rod  Webb's, between Madeira Park and Kleindale. It  Teenage smoking seen as major problem  Health Centre opens  Dr. Hugh Richards, Associate Deputy Minister ol  Health, Preventive Programs, also known as Public  Health Services, told an audience lhal teenage smoking is a serious problem in community health care  these days.  "We are going to be faced with a generation ol  respiratory cripples in 40 years time. More and more,  the emphasis in public health care is to make people,  aware that they have to take responsibility for their  own good health.  "It is up to parents to make sure Iheir children do  not start smoking." Richards was addressing a large  group of public health staff, municipal officials.  Board of Health members and guests al the opening  of the new central office of the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit in'Gibsons, Friday! December 4.  The ribbon-cutting ceremony, performed by  Richards and Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons,  who is also chairman of the Board of Health, marked  the office opening of the modern premises al 1490 S.  Fletcher St. in the School Board building and Ihe  move of the central administrative office of the  Health Unit to Gibsons from Powell River.  Dr. Bruce Laing, director, told the audience the  Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit, begun in 1964, is "the  youngest health unit in lhe province" and takes in a  large area including three school districts: #46 Sunshine Coast, #47 Powell River and #48 Howe Sound.  The new health unit has office space for the new  Director and Medical Health Officer who will replace  Dr. Laing upon his retirement in the fall, Chief  Public Health Inspector, Barrie Willoughby, two  Health Inspectors, Nursing Supervisor, two full-time  and two part-lime Public Health nurses, four part-  time Home Care nurses, a physiotherapist, Health  Unit aide, three clerical staff, and an office supervisor.  Mayor Goddard stated that the opening of the new  Health Unit marks the completion of three years of  planning and building and is an important centre on  the Sunshine Coast. Powell River still has five Public  Health Nurses and four part-lime Home Care nurses  as well as a Speech and Hearing Clinic, but administration will now be centred in Gibsons.  Nursing supervisor Diane Read told the Coasl  News that with the larger complement of nursing  staff in the Gibsons area, improved public health services will be available to the community, particularly  in the schools where more nursing time has been requested.

I'hi.n i  Locals are provincial champs  by Brian Butcher  It is exciting to win a tournament but there is a  special thrill in winning the gold medal at a provincial  championship. That is the thrill that the players,  manager and coaches of Elphinstone Senior Girls'  Volleyball team felt last weekend as the Cougars  swept through the provincial tcurnamenl  undefeated.  Twelve learns from across British Columbia had  qualified for the tournament at Kelowna, and in the  beginning KLO Secondary from Kelowna and  Elphinstone were pre-tournament favourites with  KLO highly favoured to win.  After an impressive opening ceremony on Thursday at George Pringle Secondary School, site of the  tournament, Elphinstone struggled to a 15-10, 15-6  win over Notre Dame from Vancouver, in the firsl  game of the round robin. The team was nervous and  tentative in its attack and simply Outlasted the Jugglers for the victory.  The key game for Elphinstone was against the  home team, George Pringle Panthers. In an exciting  match in front of a jam-packed crowd of home fans,  Elphinstone played its best game of the year to defeat  the Panthers, 15-6, 15-6.      P|case (urn l0 p���ge 14  s'ruction remains to be done.  The Gibsons Athletic Association (GAA) is fund-  raising to build a club house with washrooms and  shotoers adjacent to the park. The GAA is selling  shares in its association to interested persons al $3  each or $5 per family. The Kinsmen Club is building  a "Participark", a series of exercise trails and stations on village property immediately adjacent to the  playing field area, which they hope will be completed  in one year.  The major portion of Ihe money raised by  specified area taxation for recreation this year has  gone to pay off the pool deficit, approximately  $80,000. The WHS Recreation Commission is  seriously looking at methods lo make Ihe operation  of the Gibsons swimming pool more efficient. One  suggestion has been to build an exercise gym and ra-  quetball courts as pari of ihe pool complex. These  types of facilities have proven lo be money-making  ventures in other communities, in contrast lo swimming pools which are extremely expensive to maintain  and operate.  The thermal blanket purchased for the pool in Oc-  ober cosl $1,400 and saves heal loss from the pool  during the nighl. Since ils installation, the blanket  has saved 350 gallons of fuel oil consumption every  iwo weeks and is expected lo pay for itself in a lew  months.  However, the location of ihe bulky blanket has required lhe removal of lhe diving board, which has  been replaced by a slide instead.  Ai the Monday meeting, ihe WHS Recreation  Commission approved a proposal by Lainco Solar  Systems to install Iwo solar healing units al the pool.  One will heal the pool waler, the oilier is for lhe hoi  whirlpool and showers.  ON THE INSIDE...

The highway was a criss-cross of wires.  Power was shut off and cars had lo drive over Ihe  lines for mosl of the day while repairs and pole  replacements look place. Hydro crews worked round  the clock with 16 hours on and eight off.  The wind was so powerful in Garden Bay that  when the driver of the mail truck opened her door, it  blew backwards breaking the bolt and bending the  hinges and door.  A very enjoyable Amateur Night being held at  Madeira Park Elementary School was forced to  cancel when the lights went out right after intermission. Enthusiastic performers and audience saw one  more short piece with the aid of the emergency  lighting, which gave them 10 minutes grace.  At Lloyd Davis' Marina in Garden Bay eight  styrofoam blocks came out from under his floats due  to the violent rocking motion of the waves.  Waves from an unusually high tide flooded the  lagoon and covered the road between Davis' Marina  and Taylor's Store. The tide should have been 15.1  feet at 1:00 p.m., but peaked two hours early, being  17.5 at 11:00 a.m. Also flooded was the playground  of the Madeira Park Elementary School.  Taylor's Garden Bay Store remained open for  basic needs and customers shopped by flashlight or  mostly just gathered to drink some of the only coffee  available and swap "storm stories". Taylor's have  been hit twice Ihis month for $350 in damaged products when power to the freezers failed. "It's very,  very frustrating," Frances says, "but there's nothing  else to do!"  Cecile Girard and John Galpin's wedding went  ahead as scheduled at the church and Ihe Madeira  Park Community Hall despite the power outage. Using candles and a portable generator, both the service  and reception were held lo the enjoyment of  everyone!  Helen Dawe displays Sechell beach photograph to  Sechelt councillors. ��� (,���������*.M.*<n   At Sechelt Council  Dawe lectures  on beach  Last week at the regular Sechelt Council meeting,  Miss Helen Dawe made a presentation to council  concerning the proposed seawall along the Sechelt  beach from. Miss Dawe lectured council on the  historical incompetence and ineptitude of previous  Sechelt councils in Iheir mishandling of the Sechelt  foreshore.  Exceptionally well prepared as always, Miss Dawe  submitted a brief, quoting previous council decisions  dating back to 1969 concerning seawall construction.  Included in the brief were press clippings from Ihe  Coasl News and Ihe now defunct Peninsula Times  outlining the history of council actions.  Included in the presentation were a series of  outstanding photographs from Miss Dawe's own collection, showing the Sechelt beach front as far back  as 1898. The visual impact of '.he photos, clearly  demonstrating the deterioration of whal was once a  beautiful beach, was perhaps the most effective part  of the presentation.  Miss Dawe concluded her presentation by reading  a letter to the editor of lhe Peninsula Times from  March 24, 1976, written by Mary Gross, a niece of  Sechell pioneer Jack Mayne, which read in part:  "It took hundreds of millions of years for nature  to form the countless smooth and shining pebbles,  Ihe gentle, even, slope and Ihe perfect sweeping crescent of Sechelt's beach.  "It look a few days for village council to destroy  il."  Miss Dawe suggested that Council fund a study of  the beach prior lo further action. She suggested  geologist Wulf Bauer of Seattle as the ideal expert to  give Council advise before it proceeds lo construct a  seawall.  Council listened courteously lo the presentation  and passed Miss Dawe's suggestions on lo the Public  Works Committee.

IN ���ddrtttat on tht Sumhlne Coast  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  Cooper's Green  postscript  There are two issues at slake in  the matter of Cooper's Green. The  most obvious is that on this strip of  coasl hundreds of miles long il is  becoming increasingly difficult for  visitors and tioti-waierfroiii owners  to gain ready'access to the beach.  Consequently the loss of Cooper's  Green as a public area for enjoyment tiP future generations is a  public tragedy.  The Regional Board could have  acquired ii jusl a very few years ago  for $123,000 instead of the reported  {1.3 million that is being asked for ii  now. lit ihe interim, Victoria has de-  gazetted a road which ran through  the properly and sold the connecting  piece to the owners of Cooper's  Green for SI 1,000 and now the  Regional Board has obligingly re-  roned ihe residential piece of ihe  properly lo commercial to accommodate lite hiarket aspirations of  the owners and the grand designs of  those who seek to become lhe  owners.  The often-heard and Lee-inspired  business about the dear old lady being roughly treated in her declining  years jusl won't wash, we submit, li  is certain thai an objective study of  the history of the property would  reveal lhal for decades the owners,  descended from William Ebcrhan,  the founder of the Social Credil  Party, have been accorded consistently favoured treatment from a  long succession of Socred governments. Thai Ihey should now have  received favoured treatment at the  hands of ihe regional board has ils  own tragic irony.  The slory of Cooper's Green is a  pathetic chapter in Ihe history of  our local governments. Somehow  for years a scries of regional boards  has fumbled ihe ball lhal is  Cooper's Green. The present Board  has distinguished itself by first dropping Ihe ball then stepping on ii and  bursting ii completely.  The second issue in Ihe sad saga  of Cooper's Green, though less obvious, may in ils own way be even  more important. The essence of  democracy is probably slill as well  summed up by ihe original rallying  cry of 'No taxation without  representation'. If we pay the  money wc want to have some small  say in whal happens lo it. In the lasi  Regional Board decision Ihe wishes  of Ihe taxpayers in the area were  iramplcd Inlo lhe din as surely as  was Ihe recommendation of Iheir  area direcior. Wc had people making decisions aboul lhal area againsl  Ihe wishes of Ihe laxpaycr; without  lhe decision makers knowing  anything of lhe history of lhe area  (and apparently equally without any  vision of lhe future); and without  ihe laxpayers ever having lhe righl  10 vole for ihose decision makers.  In such ways does democracy die.  ...from tht flits of tht COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AQO  The "Sunshine Coast Queen"  will sail its last run on Monday  night it everything goes as planned with the introduction of the  "Queen of New Westminster"  onto the Howe Sound crossing.  The employees laid off the  Sunshine Coast Queen have  been sent to the manning pool  and will be restationed on the  new service.  TEN YEARS AQO  Hon.

FIFTEEN YEARS AQO  Mr. Clarence Joe, chief councillor of the Sechelt Indian  Band, invited members of  various committees in the area  and Interested citizens to meet  with members of the Indian  Band Council to discuss matters concerning both cu'tures.  The band plans to meet with  these groups periodically to  study programs which would be  of mutuahbenetit.  Mr. D.G.

Why don't we just have a civil  war and shoot it out sensibly."  ��� Quote Irom Vicki Fremlin, In  the Farmer's Advocate.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Retirement from one business  doesn't mean idleness or retirement from work, the life of the  Clayton family of Sechelt proves.  Over six years ago Edric  Clayton retired from the Union  Store. After a brief respite and  due consideration he built a  small grocery store.  With the help of Mrs. Clayton  and the boys, John and Dick, he  worked up such a business that  he enlarged it and added  warehouse space.  This year with the need for  more and larger grocery space,  Mr. Clayton joined the Tom Boy  Stores, an independent chain of  grocers and now announces an  opening ot Tom Boy Store No. 5  at Sechelt.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Yet another freight service is  lessening its schedule to the  Sechelt Peninsula.  Latest to announce curtailment of its present program is  Frank Waterhouse freight service which will cut out Friday  calls to Still Water, Lang Bay,  Pender Harbour and Halfmoon  Bay.  The cuts, a company  spokesman said, will be effective December 7.  Present schedule to Sechelt  will be cut by means of stopping  the Wednesday call there. No  reason was given for the curtailment.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  An enjoyable afternoon tea  and sale of Christmas novelties  was held Saturday at the Kewpie  Kamp by the W.A. of St. Aiden's  Church, Roberts Creek, Despite  the weather a number of  residents attended. The sale  was opened by Mrs. CD.  Clough.  Despite the tempestuous  weather without, the comfortable room at the Kewpie Kamp  was filled to capacity for the  monthly Red Cross whist drive.  Prizes for highest scores were  awarded to Mrs. Brines and Mr.  A. Rusk.  Rivers Inlet, I*>2S. I arlv in il Sunday afternoon, fishermen assemble their skill's In-hind a low hoal near Ihe J.II.

When Ihe winds howl,  Ihe waves crash, and  irees come tumbling  down as has been Ihe  case a couple of limes  recently on Ihe Sunshine  Coasl with the onset of  winter, I am prone to  take comfort from the  fact lhal 'ai lcasi it's nol  sixty below', li may be  cold comfort to those  unfortunate enough io  be silling with the power  out in an electrically  healed home, bin it's nol  as cold as il could be.  By way of taking  refuge from Ihose who  Ihink of nothing except  gain and glory, and ihose  benighted souls who cannot distinguish between  ihe Iwo, I am prone io  slip back in memory to  my years in the Yukon in  search of, ironically, a  warming human  thought.  li was my'custom lo  go oui every day for al  leasl an hour regardless  of ihe temperature. I  don't say I enjoyed il bul  ii fell wonderful when I  goi home again and did  much to mitigate againsl  ihe mid-winter, housebound depression inescapable above lhe sixtieth parallel. Much  more effective lhan lhe  oft-prescribed hot rums.  There was an implacable beamy aboul  Ihe Yukon landscape,  too, though al almosl a  hundred degrees of I'rosl  ihere was little inclination lo stand and admire.  On one occasion I was  two or Ihree miles from  town, wearing my beloved mukluks. Wonderful  things, mukluks. The  feel stay warm ai the coldest temperatures and  Ihey are so lighl il feels  like you arc travelling  barefoot, every ripple on  Ihe snow can he fell  plainly.  Whal you can'l do is  gel Ihem wei. You might  think lhal rat her a difficult leal al  lemperalures so much  below freezing, bin il can  be done.  There are natural  manifestations known as  glaciers, correctly so for  all 1 know, which have  nothing to do wilh Ihe  greal rivers of ice thai  some may have seen in  ihe high mountains or  along lhe northern shore  of ihe Pacific Ocean.  These lillle glaciers appear al lhe beginning of  lhe winter, grow and  then diminish and disappear wilh each spring.  They are caused by  deep underground springs which keep bubbling  to the surface of ihe  frozen earth and being  frozen themselves. As  Ihe ice forms over the  spring slill ihe waler is  forced upward over Ihe  ice   where   il    freezes  again, and so continually.  By the middle ol the  winter al iis peak such a  glacier might be nine or  ten feel higher lhan the  ground beneath it. Occasionally the unwary  walker can come upon  the glacier when the  freezing is incomplete or  where only a thin surface  of ice has formed over  slush ice underneath and  when thai happens, even  al sixty below, you can  gel your mukluks wet.  Wet mukluks are ab-  soiuiely without insulation value and are nol  waterproof and Ihe  amount of body heal loss  through cold wei feel in  temperatures Ihat low  means lhal death is not  far away.  On such a day on one  of my walks, deep in  thought, I climbed over  jusl such a glacier across  lhe trail and suddenly  was standing on top of  thai uncertain pile of Ice  wilh both feel in lhe  slush ice beneath the  fragile, new-formed surface.  I was Iwo or ihree  miles from town, I was  also aboul a mile and a  half from a partially-  ruined cabin in ihe opposite direction from  town, which I knew was  used by the town's  teenagers as iheir gang  headquarters. It was a  small, two-room log  cabin long disused. The  roof over one room had  collapsed, bill lhe second  room was si ill sound. Inside, I knew, ihere was  an improvised slove  made of a biscuit tin wiih  a couple of lengths of.  stovepipe slicking  through Ihe old chimney  hole in Ihe roof.  II was. and I hope slill  is, a tradition in thai  frozen land that in the  wintertime cabin doors  were lell unlocked and  lhe fire always sel in case  some refugee from the  cold came by and needed  quick warmth.  Standing on top of the  lillle glacier with my wei  and rapidly freezing feet,  I decided to put my faith  in the teenagers. I headed for the cabin as being  closer lhan lhe town,  sure ihai there would be  a fire sel in lhe biscuit tin  slove and wood left  chopped beside it. Over  il I could dry my  fool wear.  I moved fast on freezing feel ihe relatively,  short distance to the  cabin, bul slill I had  underestimated ihe lethal  implacability of thai cold  country. I was very, very  cold when I reached I lie  derelict cabin and  stumbled over Ihe roof  beams of ihe outer room  lo reach the haven of  ihat home-made slove.  1 realized as 1 pushed  open Ihe door of the second room that if Ihere  was no lire set and no  wood chopped il was  questionable whelher I  could make il back lo  town, the final numbness  was already so greal.  The fire was sel in the  little biscuit tin and  wood was chopped and  fervently I blessed lhe  youngsters who had  respected an old and life-  saving tradition.  I fumbled oul of my  arctic miuens for Ihe  wooden matches that I  always carried. For a  brief and terrible lime ii  seemed, wilh the sel lire  beckoning, as though my  fingers were already too  numb lo perform lhe  simple business of spiking a match, There wi a  brief period of slrui Ie  in frightened concenlia-  lion, then I succeeded in  striking ihe match and  selling ii to the wailing  lire.  In len minutes I was  siiiiug toasting myself  beside lhe biscuit III),  now glowing red, feeding  il firewood, warming  some snow water in an  old kettle and preparing  to make sonic lea from  lhe teenagers' slash,  while ��� my socks and  mukluks hung drying hy.

The Hoard of School  Trustees has discussed  the issue and has determined thai for some  legal reasons to do with  the function of societies  under the Societies Act,  the best way to proceed  to bring Knowledge Network programming to  lhe Sunshine Coasl is  through the formation of  a society organized for  that purpose. Al Ihis  lime, the Suncoast  Television Society, Box  178, Madeira Park, B.C.  The presidenl of the  Society is Susan Frizzell  and among the directors  are: John Nicholson,  Direcior of Instruction  for School Districi No.  46, Karin Hoemberg of  Continuing Education,  Maria McKowu, Communications teacher ai  Elphinstone, April  Slrulhers of Capilano  College and Maryannc  West, Coast ' ews columnist and reporler.  Anyone inlere led in  joining Ihe Society  should conlacl one ol  ihese people. I understand the membership fee  is $10.  The wheels I hen are in  motion io bring  Knowledge Network  programming here lo the  Coasl. Given I lie  necessary bureaucratic  and technical steps io be  iiikcn before ihe network  is here, il could be six  months to a year before  the goals of lhe sociely  arc realized.  My own particular in-  leresl in ihe Knowledge  Nelwork slenis from my  involvement in an experiment funded by the  federal and provincial  governments designed to  determine the feasibility  of delivering university  credil courses io students  In various pans of the  province. Interestingly,  Mrs. Frances Fleming's  son Jack was one of the  officials of the Ministry  of Education who was  involved in the project,  Our project, which  was curried oul through  the co-operative efforts  of the University of Vic-  torlaand lhe British Columbia   Institute   oi  Technology in Burnaby,  involved one relatively  minor aspect of educational television programming. While most  Knowledge Network  programming is straight,'  in-lo-lhe-homc educational television, wc experimented with a special  capability of Ihe system  called "interactive"  educational television.  The Interactive  capability allows the  teacher and the student,  io maintain communication throughout the  televised lesson. While  Ihere are some obvious  limitations to this Interactive feature (in particular all programming  must be live and rerunning Ihese programs '  limits their effectiveness)'  the ability to carry on ac-'  live communication',  throughout the lesson'  vastly alters the nature'  and value of the lessons'  being taught,  In conducting our ex-  perimeni at Ihe University of Victoria's faculty  of   education;   we,   as  educators,   were   laced  with the problem of how  io structure our lessons'  in such a way as to lake'  full advantage of Ihe in-'  teraclive   capability   of  our system. As most people are sadly aware, too  much education is the "I.  talk-you listen" variety  in which the teacher lectures and the student, a|  leasl    theoretically,  Icarus. This didactaic approach  is probably the  greatest    drawback    to  normal,   non-interactive  educational T.V.  We tried to design our'  programming so that our  sludenls (we had between 60 and 70 in six  locations around lhe  province, including one  group in Whiiehorse) did  iheir low-level (fad acquisition) learning  belore our broadcast. By  doing this we could make ,  use of our one and a hall'.-  hour air lime a week for.  clarification, question  asking, elaboration, and  discussion, etc.  Perhaps our greatest  problem was in convincing our guest lecturers to  overcome certain Conceptual mind-sets about  how to leach over a  televison system. Most  of them insisted on lectin ing, not believing the  sludenls had actually'  handled the information  pari of lhe lesson prior  lo air lime.  On those occasions  when we were able to use  the system for ils designed purpose, ii worked  brilliantly opening up for  us, as educators, a vision  of learning we had nol  realized existed.

Name  is our Promise  100% Locally Owned & Operated  Letters to the Editor  hi   the Vill-uic fpnmmnn     I nl 71 nr iu rco  Goddard rebuttal  Editor:  Now that our judicial  recount has been completed may I respond to  Mr. R. Maxwell's letter  published in your November 23rd edition.  Notably, he said little  about lhe main thrusl of  my earlier letter which  concerned Ihe conduct of  lhe mayoralty campaign.  May I then comment  first on a few points  which were only raised  late in lhe day...there  having been no opportunity to do so effectively before the election as  we do not, as yet, enjoy  daily newspapers.  1. Serving as a full-lime  mayor. The inference is  that a part-time mayor  cannot operate efficiently. There is only one  mayor in the whole of  British Columbia who  does nol list another occupation. Vancouver,  Victoria, Kamloops,  Prince George etc., are  all governed by part-time  mayors. We have a staff  to handle the administration. Mayors are there to  provide leadership.  2. Conflict of Interest. I  Ihink Alderman Edney  addressed this very effectively in his "Shop  Talk" of November  23rd. Further to his comments about the slur on  elected people with  business interests I find il  difficult to see how a  fashion wear business  can be in conflict. Were  Mayor Goddard to issue  herself a contract to  dress the public works  crew in frilly tu-tus I  would believe it. (Sorry  Ron.) Another rumour  that I am sure did NOT  originate with Mr.  Trainor is that Ken and  Lorraine Goddard have  extensive real estate  holdings in the village.  Arriving in Gibsons in  1962 Ihey purchased a  house on Seaview which  Ihey sold three years  later to purchase the  house in which they have  lived ever since. An adjacent lot was bought in  partnership with their  nearest neighbour to  provide a playground for  lhe children of both  families. Now those  children have grown the  parties have agreed lo re-  lain the lot as a barrier.  Neither Iheir house nor  Iheir lot  is either sub  dividable   or   for   sale.  They have never owned  Slings and  Continued from Page 2  up in the lesson wilh  students in Whitehorse  while another group of  students in Alberni  would be interrupting  with a clarifying point.  The role of the lecturer  became one of directing  the discussion toward a  productive conclusion.  The role of teacher  was drastically altered by  the interactive feature of  our system. No longer  was the student a passive  observer and occasional  note-taker, he was actively involved in the  learning process in a way  only a classroom could  any other properly in  ihis village. They have  owned one parcel of land  in ihe Regional District  for several years. It is a  long term investment, is  not for sale, is not being  developed and has been  declared by both Ken  and Lorraine when running for office.  3. Financial Ability. The  one sure way to gain this  ability is to run a successful free enterprise  operation. 'Nuff said?  4. The Marina. Mr.  Trainor served on the  marina committee and  was understood to be in  favour of the project.  Midweek before the election he announced that  he was againsl it. To  change his mind is his  righl but he did have a  duty to inform the electorate..which, of course  he did not. Ironically  Alderman Jack Marshall  (to whom congratulations) ran on a "no  marina" ticket and was  soundly elected.  This is a village wilh a  high percentage retiree  vote and our retirees  turned out in commendable strength. Our  young people responded  wiih apalhy. I have asked two or ihree of our  very suitable in their thirties why they do nol run  for office. After all they  are not only interested in  the presenl slate of Ihe  Village but the form il  may take twenty to thirty  years from now. Their  singular response is  "Who needs the abuse?"  They are a point! Not  knowing our younger  aldermanic candidate I  voted for him strictly on  the basis of age. 1 wish  him better luck next  lime.  Back to Mr. Maxwell's  letter. Had that  gentleman bothered lo  keep an appointment  made between himself,  the Village Administrator, the Village  Planner and myself he  might have saved himself  the irouble. In 1978 Mr.  and Mrs. Maxwell applied to divide their Lot  74. This was approved  and became Lots I and  2, block F, District Lot  685, Plan 17379. Ihis was  a two lot subdivision.  There is no such thing as  a one lol subdivision, the  very   term   is   self-  by Ihe Village (common  practice) that permitted  ihe servicing of lhe second lot (and thereby  allowing it lo come into  existence) and one adjacent lot (75). For reasons  of cost, time and tax  base the Village shared  sewer cost with Mr.  Maxwell on a 50/50%  basis. The following year  Mr. Maxwell and a  neighbour agreed, for  consideration paid by  Mr. Maxwell, to replot  Lots 2 and 73 to create  Lots A and B, Block F,  DL685, Plan 17930. The  overall effect was lo do  exactly what my wife and  1 have done to create the  lot on which we  live...lake iwo lots and  subdivide ihem into  three lots. This is called a  three lot sub-division. At  no time did Mr. and  Mrs. Maxwell own either  Lot 73 or its residual Lot  B. That does not alter  the legal definitions of  "sub-division" and  "developer". These mailers and all such land  mailers pertaining to any  citizen of this province  (myself too should  anyone be the least interested) may be verified  at the Village office, The  Land Titles Office, 800  Hornby St., Vancouver  or the Legal Surveys  Dept., Harbour Towers  Hotel, Vicloria. So what  did 1 misrepresent?  Now if Mr. Maxwell  will stop slinging his verbal darts at the Village  Administration and we  evil developers, perhaps  we can all enjoy this  Season of Goodwill.  A Merry Christmas to  you all,  Sincerely,  Trevor J. Goddard  Money well spent  Editor:  With reference to your  November 16th issue and  in particular your  editorial relating lo 'Expensive flim-flammery,'  -may I make the following observations.  Having just recently  taken up residence in  Gibsons my knowledge  of your school system is  limited, but the Instructional Theory into Practice Program has been  effectively used in  Calgary (my former  home) for the past five  years.  Approximately five  years ago the need for  teacher re-training  became an issue in  Calgary. The School  Board also took steps to  professionally develop  its most important asset  -its teachers. Many  teachers who had taken  their training in '36' were  most certainly in need of  a review in teaching  techniques. I understand  in leaching many things  have changed in forty-  five years.  I would think that Mr.  Rothney is 'drawing his  considerable salary this  year for teaching  teachers how to teach;  and a trustee concurs  with the idea that there is  most certainly a need.  Mr. Rolhney's salary is a  welcome expense if my  son will have a belter  education and hopefully  the opportunity lo attend  university and not flunk  out due to lack of  preparation.  Yours truly,  Peler Rogers  Thank you  Editor:  The Sechell Indian  Band would like lo express appreciation lo ihe  visiting chiefs and  friends of Ted Dixon  who attended his funeral  lasi week.  Thanks also must go  lo lhe Indian ladies who  donated the food for lhe  funeral lunch and lo the  ladies of lhe Sechell  Legion who served il.  Slanley Earl Joe  Band Councillor  Excellent  article  Editor:  I write to congratulate  you on your excellent article in last week's paper:  re: "The Regional  Board."

One teacher was  teaching enough students  to fill a medium sized  lecture theatre except in  this case the students  were hundreds of miles  apart, in community college classrooms.  However long it takes  to establish the  Knowledge Network  here on the Coast, its arrival will be welcome.  Whether it will have an  interactive capability is  less important than the  actual presentation of  educational material  previously  unavailable.  m&te^Pi  ���rhrtatmuN  ���lours*.  -proioch  OFFICE SUPPLIES  ��� Pholo CoplM*. ��� TypawHtere  ��� Ca.li Register. ��� Clculolor.  ��� Off*.

Il was  a relatively small gathering (compared lo the  week before and ihe  Charlie Musselwhile  weekend ai any rale) but  il was very pleasani and  mellow, wiih music by  some of the local guys.  Thanks should go lo  Neil MacKenzie, Bob  Carpenier, Denny  James, Peler Kirbis,  Doug Topper, Terry  Cowderoy, Sieve  Hodgson, and various  others who drifted in,  for the donation of their  lime and talents lhal  evening.

When I accused Annie  of fixing ihe football  pool lasi week I assumed  readers in this small  community would know  both her and me well  enough to realize I was  kidding, of course. I  thought that all who  know and love Annie  would realize Ihat of  course she was above  ihai son of Ihing, so of  course the whole proposition was ridiculous  and hence amusing.  I hope this clears  things up and I apologize  lo all those who didn'i  gel Ihe joke, lo Annie for  unwillingly casling  aspersions upon her  character, and lo my  editor, John Burnside,  for taking the flak. I jusl  wish someone would  apologize to me for making a thankless job such  a hassle sometimes.  Volume missing.

That's Show-Biz:  Nicki Weber's popular  Halfmoon Bay Variety  Show at Madeira Park  on Friday the 4th was  called to a halt shortly  after intermission time  due to a blackout in the  school hall at the height  of Friday night's storm.  The show did go on for a  while with the help of  some emergency flash  lights, but it was feared  that these lights wouldn't  last long enough, so the  decision was made to cut  the. programme short.  This was most unfortunate, as the hall was  packed with a great audience who were  thoroughly enjoying the  production, which had  been sponsored by the  Coast Drama group.  Maybe one day ihe,jnow  will return to Ihat area,  so that the people can see  the rest of the show. In  the meantime, the cast is  having a rest for a couple  of weeks over the  holidays and will get  busy for the next all-new  show to be seen some  time in February.  More Letters ���������  Animal killing deplored  Editor:  1 am an old person and  live alone. I had a little  pet cat. It was lovingly  taken care of and never  heard a harsh word. One  day, being a male in springtime, it took temporary leave to mate as  all will. This time it never  came back. I called it. I  cried for it. Kept it's  food handy. Hoped even  after many months it  would return. I dreamed  about it and I thought I  heard it crying. Thought  it was somewhere alive  and longing to get home.  1 longed for it. And I  feared it was alive  somewhere and suffering. With many inquiries  about missing cats I  discovered a very large  number of people  lost  their pets, both cats and  dogs. Now I read that  my worst fears are very  likely true.  What is a man, or a  woman, who tortures  animals, who will steal  your little pet? After a  terrible journey, will imprison it in a tiny, dismal  cage, only taking it out  for fiendish suffering by  experiments, until the  unfortunate creature dies  after weeks or months of  agony, terror and  loneliness.  And for what?  Money. 99-7o of those  thousands upon  thousands of experiments are not to save  human life but to increase human bank accounts. Does this make  you proud? Glad to be  alive? Happy to participate? And where does  U.B.C, Simon Fraser,  St. Paul's and Vancouver General Hospital  get animals from? A  prime source, we read, is  the Sunshine Coast! In a  place so beautiful, how  can mankind be so vilel I  would rather die of  whatever I die from,  even this very day, than  have poor little harmless  animals tormented to  procure some possible  extension of my life. My  life should not be obtain  ed by the torture of living creatures, nor by  having other human beings so ��� betray  themselves, so lower  their humanity into a  foul and beastly condition far lower than the  dumbest beast.  All those taking part  in the revolting trade,  from those catching and  dispatching our animals,  to the scientist and student doctor, are not people I want to share this  earth with. There is, and  must be, another way.  As to those doing it for  mere money-making,  they have reached to bottom of human of human  inequity and squalour.  Yes, I know people  are more important than  animals. That is the very  reason I wish people  would live with human  dignity and natural love  for pretty little animals,  even as little children do,  and never, no matter  what, betray themselves  by becoming animal torturers, jailors and  monsters unfit to be in  the human race.

The full blame  lies with Village Council  who made the decision to  dispose of these animals  in this manner. Twenty-  five dollars is paid per  dog turned over lo Dr.  Gregg. The onus lies on  the dog owner who  should be held responsible for allowing his pet  to roam. Dogs should be  kept at home and should  be wearing a collar and  identification tag at all  times, so if it is lost or  found it can be identified  and owner contacted.  The Sunshine Coast has  long been a dumping  ground for unwanted  animals and the SPCA  was formed to help rectify the problem. Strays  are kept for 96 hours and  if not claimed are put up  for adoption. We do not  kill pels and we do nol  condone the suffering of  animals unable to speak  out of their pain and  confusion in research  labs. Only the public as  responsible pet owners  can put a stop to this unnecessary suffering.  Myckee Madill  Presidenl  Sunshine Coast SPCA  Box 405,  Gibsons, B.C.

Audience participation is an essential pan  of melodrama as ihe narrator, Sheree Wolansky,  slated ai ihe beginning of  the evening, The audience was encouraged  io lake pan by cheering  the heroes and booing  ilie villains.  The lirsi performance  of the evening was "One  Monlh to Pay" or "The  Sailor's Return". As  soon as the Ihree young  ladies appeared on the  stage the ease with which  they played their pans  made il easy for the audience to participate.  So sad was "Sweel  Alice" played by Darcie  Si. Denis as she related  her story of desperate  troubles to her friend  "Kindly Mrs. Hemic;,",  porl rayed by Marion  Van der Cieesi, lhal we  round ourselves engrossed.  Stephanie Sheridan as  "Dear   Mary"   showed  promise of developing  into a fine character actress, with her childish  amies, all the while interjecting homilies.  Brian Beard as the  villain, "Evil Squire  Meadows" was wonderful. One jusl couldn't  keep quiel while he was  doing his stuff.  I orena    Henry   as  "Brother Joe", the halfwit alcoholic broiher,  was excellent as a  character aeior. As ihe  play was reaching ils  drastic climax, Tony  Mankind, as lhe long-  lost sailor husband,  relumed lo save lhe day,  as lhe audience cheered.  Lights out  During sel changes  there were a selection of  olios. Olios are short lillle skits or pantomimes.  Liselle Herdahl and Mar-  cy Solis de Oranda did  Iwo olios which enier-  lained us. Gillian Johns  has quile a talent at pantomime - wonder what  she'd be like in a speaking role?  The second presentation called "Temptation  Sordid" or "Virtue  Rewarded" had five  acts. Again we meel the  heroines: Ihe mother  played by Deborah Harrison. Her bored and  domineering   allilude  brought loud booing  Irom lhe audience.  Donna MacFarlane,  playing lhe "Beloved  Arabella" was charmingly sweel and innocent.  Of course the villain,  ponrayed by Joseph  Sirubb was Irue to his  nasty ways in warning to  lake the jewels and the  girl. The "Alluring Fan-  nv" was played by the  alluring Amanda  Wilson.  lhe hero of Ihis  melodrama was the  ������Noble Clarence  Whiteheart" played by  Richard Farrell, the  romantic character aeior  whom we saw lasi spring  in Our Town? Glad lo  see him again.  A hearty hand (no  booing, please) goes to  Ken Dalgleish, our own  Sunshine  Coasl   pianist  who   performed   the  music for ihis lively production.

Her eves fill wilh tears  of frustration and  fatigue for a moment,  but lhe plucky lady goes  on. Her husband died  iwo years ago and she  has Iwo sons, 18 and 20.  both livingai home one a  carpenier and lhe oilier a  plumber.  She spends countless  hours travelling and  visiting, reading, speaking 10 concerned Irish  parenls "on lhe phone  day and nighl", comforting and giving hope, all  wilhoul any financial  reward.  Whal lillle money she  has, she spends to pro-  niote ihe five-week  holidays she arranges lor  Irish youngsters between  ihe ages of 8 and 12  years, lo visit and experience a normal life in  North America.  "I would rat Iter give  my money io help lhan  io kill innocenl people,"  says Sarah, who describes ihe situation in  Ireland as worsening,  because of ihe terror of  lhe bombs. Booby naps  have claimed thousands  of innocenl lives.  Mrs. Hughes describes  one child whose hand  was blown off by a hidden bomb and when lhe  boy visited America, lhe  Shriners paid lo have  him filled wilh a new  hand.  "When my sons go  mil, I can'l relax. I sil  and slare al lhe Icily bul  I wouldn't be able lo lell  you whal I am  watching," says Sarah,  who lives on the outskirts of Belfast,  Sarah wishes her sons  would leave Ireland���she  would rather see ihem go  away lhan remain and be  maimed or killed. Many  children are viriual  prisoners in Iheir homes.  Especially in cases of  single parent families,  when lhe pareni is nol  home, lhe children are  nol allowed lo go oul  and play, for fear of injury from hidden bombs.  There are barricades in  ihe downiown area of  Bel lasi, where people are  searched as Ihey enier.  When shoppers enter  stores, ihey are searched  for explosives.  "It's a way of life, li  has io be done, lo bring  thing's back io normal,  so people can shop  wilhoul fear."  Inflation and growing  poverty is pulling Ihe  children inlo lhe strife.  They can earn a few pennies by delivering  messages and running errands for ihe extremists.  Mrs. Hughes, who is a  I'roiesiani, maintains  lhal Ihe IRA is financed  by communists. "I have  more in common wiih a  Catholic than I do with a  Coinmunisl or extremist  on either side," she firmly believes.  Since she began her  campaign len years ago  Sarah lliiglus from Htllusl, Ireland, Is determined  lit help Irish children experience the "gtnitl life" in  Krtltlliflll B.C. -Wiirl'ini, i   lo send children lo  America lo experience  "a better way of life,  where Catholics and  Protestants live together  in peace," thousands of  Northern Irish children  have benefitted from  generosity on both sides.  Volunleers help Mrs.  Hughes in Ireland lo  select children, io  chaperone ihem on ihe  long llighls, and lo talk  10 their families. In  Canada and lhe US  families receiving a child  pay ihe air fare, which  Ihis year will be $600.  British Airways cooperates by giving good  rales and complementary  tickets io Mrs. Hughes.  Mrs. Hughes' reason  fordoing il is simple: "li  lhe children never know  a belter way of life, how:  are ihey going lo know  how io make a better life  lor Iheir children?"  She believes ihe  children's visits arc a  learning experience lhal  broadens iheir oullook.  11 is nol simply a holiday, all hough ihere is no  question lhal ihis trip  may be lhe only holiday  some of I he children may  ever know.  A particular) difficult  situation arises in cases  where only one child in a  family can be chosen for  Ihe trip. Mrs. Hughes is  gratified if she can find a  family who will offer lo  lake a brother and sister  together, bin since ihis is  a large burden, she  doesn't expeel ii.  However, her visit lo lhe  -Sunshine Coasl Ihis week  has been rewarded by  jusl such an offer from a  Sechelt briefs  Sechell couple, who are  giving up a nip lo lhe  Uniled Kingdom to  finance a trip here for  iwo children Instead.  The Sarah Hughes  Society of B.C. can be  contacled al 5646 10th  Avenue, Delia, B.C.  V4L 1CI. Presidenl is  fed toiler of Delia ai  943-240.1. On lhe Sunshine Coasl, contact person is Sharon Webber al  886-2900, Box 1063,  Gibsons, B.C. The Webbers had a 10 year old  girl, Pauline Kerr from  Bel fast slay wilh litem  lasi summer and are asking lor another child this  year, for $5, a person  may become a member  of the Society and Ihese  and other voluntary  donations help pay the  expenses of chaperones  travelling from Ireland.  Lasi year, 83 children  came lo B.C. and Ihis  year Mrs. Hughes hopes  lo find places lor 100  children.  when a sponsor family decides lo lake a child,  a $200 deposit for lhe air  fare is required immediately and lhe remainder of lite $600  musi be paid by March  15. 1982. The children's  families are asked lo  coinribuie something lo  make ihe child's nip  possible, because as Mrs.  Hughes recognizes,  "people appreciate ii  more if ihey have lo pay  lor il." However, truly  needy children are given  I'iisi consideration,  because ihis may be lhe  only chance Ihey will  ever base.

It  seems a sensible plan  that will give us enough  money to last through  lhe winter. We settle in  for the long haul. Then  something happens thai  none of us could have  foreseen.  A rigging-slinger's job  comes open on one of  the colddeck machines.  It is the straw-boss position on a yarding crew  and a step up ihe ladder  from selling chokers.  Chris, anxious to advance himself, asks for  and gets the job. It proves to be a fateful decision.  He comes in from the  first day on the new job  with a disgruntled look  on his face. "Boy, that  new hooktender I've got  is a right sonofabitch!"  he says. "Guy called  Emil Schultz.. Real  slavedriver."  "Christ!" says Verne.  "If I'd known it was his  side you were going on, 1  would have warned you.  I worked for him one  time. He's bad news  from away back. Thinks  iis still the Dirty  Thirties!"  "Well, I guess I'm  stuck with him" says-  Chris wryly. "I'll just  have to tough it out  somehow."    Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Practically every night  from this point on, Chris  comes home with some  new complaint about  Schultz' unreasonable  behaviour. He points  him out to me. Schultz  looks every bit as mean  as he sounds���a tall man  wiih hard eyes and a  thin, bitter mouth.  Under the circumstances, it is only a  matter of time before  something hits the fan.  Verne and I come back  from the woods one  night to find Chris  already in the  bunkhouse. "Well, I  guess ii's goodbye io this  camp" he says.  "What happened?"  asks Verne. "Did you  pack her in?"  "Not exactly" says  Chris. "Schultz changed  roads this morning and  he hung the block in such  a way that we were forced to work in the bight  all ihe time. It was  dangerous as hell and I  asked him to move the  block to another stump  so we'd be able to get in  the clear. Of course the  old bastard wouldn't  hear of it so I mutinied  on him and talked the  rest of the crew into  walking off with me for  safety reasons. I figured  if 1 told the super what  the score was, he might  listen to me. But Schultz  grabbed a logging truck  and got into camp ahead  of us. Turns out Schultz  is the super's brother-in-  law so 1 didn't stand a  chance anyhow. They  canned me for trouble-  making."  "Well, to hell with the  bastards!" says Verne.  "We're all partners.  We'll bloody well quit  too. I hear they're  building a new pulp-mill  near Rupert. We can get  jobs there."  "Sure" I agree.  Chris makes some attempt lo talk us out of il  but ii seems the only  right thing to do under  the circumstances. Verne  and I head over to the office and gel ihem to  make out our lime.  The next morning, the  three of us are in a  chartered Norseman,  gunning across Hecate  Strait towards Prince  Rupert. This wasn't exactly the way we'd had it  figured but whal the  hell? I have weathered  my first logging-camp.  lace  _..._�� .,��,�� Licensed Premises  RESERVE NOW  for your Traditional  CHRISTMAS TURKEY DINNER!

The  Sunshine Choristers, a  local group who meet  weekly for the pleasure  of making music  together, will be presenting a Christmas Concert  on Friday December 11,  8:00 pm. at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt.  The Choristers, under  the direction of Jessie  Bell Gairns, generally  focus on one public concert a year, as well as  competing in the Sunshine Coast Music  Festival. They also perform in local hospitals,  churches, intermediate  care centres, and last spring gave their first concert at the Arts Centre.  Friday's concert marks  their first Christmas  presentation.  The Arts Centre,  which undoubtedly has  the best acoustics on the  coast, will be the setting.  The current exhibition,  Spiritual Journeys, with  20 Sunshine Coast artists  renditions of the Nativity, and a stunning  display of handpainted  icons by Elizabeth Low  will offer a warming  complement to ihe  Choristers Christmas  Concert. Admission is  $2.50 for adults, SI.50  for O.A.P. and students.  CRAB STUFFED  CANNELLONI MO  At the Twilight  The Twilight Theatre  vice for their cmldren.  in Gibsons presents a  week of sex and passion  in two films. The first.  Body Heal, starring  William Hurt and  Kathleen Turner, is a  classy, unabashed pot  boiler in which sexy lady  entices sexy man to kill  her not-so-sexy husband.  The plot is nol unique,  hut the eroticism raises  ihe film to beiter-than-  average quality, for  ihose who like that sort  of thing.  Body Heat plays  Wednesday through  Salurday, December 9th  - 12th. The film is of  course restricted and is  not the sort of thing  parents would want to  use as a baby sittin&ser-  Sex among the bubble  gum set is the theme of  Franco Zeffirelli's  Endlesslove. The plot,  teenage boy lusting after  teenage girl, is certainly  believable. This particular teenage boy,  however, is inclined to  go to excessive lengths to  obtain the object of his  desires. The theme certainly worked for Zef-  firelli in his beautiful  film Romeo and Juliet  and the novel  Endlesslove has become  something of a pop cult  item, so this movie is  probably worth a look.  Endlesslove plays Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, 8 p.m., December  13, 14 and 15th.

The Sarah Hughes  Society of British Columbia takes its name  from a woman who had  a dream some years ago.  Fifty-two year old Sarah  Hughes from Belfast,  Northern Ireland, was in  our studio with host,  Louise Hume. Mrs.  Hughes had the idea of  taking young Irish  children away from the  violence that surrounded  their everyday life. Last  July she brought 83  children to British Columbia. One of these  children visited the Webber family in Gibsons.  We were pleased to have  Mrs. Hughes here to  discuss her efforts and  her plans for the future.  "Coasl Ten Visits BCIT  and Delta Ten Television.  Presently three  students from the Community Broadcasting  Program at Elphinstone  are enrolled at BCIT. We  were able to visit  Kathleen Hall and Carl  Johnstone. We toured  the facilities and talked  with teachers and  students. We left BCIT  and visited our sister station, Delta Ten. Program Director, Ron  Dubbin, gave us a tour  of the studio, the mobile  unit, and explained to us  the role of community  television in Delta. This  musical tour was produced by Brian Beard, Vicki  Hawken, Kenna Marshall and Anne Watt.  "Special Thanks to  Canadian Forest Products al Port Mellon."  Canadian Forest Products contributed two  FILL television lights to  the Community Broadcasting Class. We visited  Port Mellon and received  a warm welcome as well  as our lights. This show  was taped on location at  Port Mellon and in our  studio. You will see the  students receiving and  opening the new lights.  Thank you, Port Mellon,  we greatly appreciate this  donation and hope that  we will make proper use  of them to improve the  quality of our work.  "Featuring Mr. Roberts  Creek...Dan Tohill"  Dan Tohill was in our  studio visiting Brian  Beard. Dan was judged  to be Mr. Roberts Creek  during last summer's  Daze. This show flashes  back to summer activities; the Daze, the Sea  Cavalcade and the Sunshine Coast Talent Contest. Dan discusses his  role as Mr. Roberts  Creek and gives us some  insight into his career  and his talents. Dan  brought his harmonica  and played selections for  us. This show was produced and edited by  Brian Beard.  "Home of the  Trumpeter Swans,  Cranberry Lake."  From Powell River  Cable Net, this show  features a look at the  trumpeter swans. The  film and tape footage of  the birds was collected  over a period of four  years and documents information about the  behaviour and nesting  activities of the swans  from the time they arrive  until they leave.  Cranberry Lake is  located north and east of  Powell River.

Dec. 11th & 12th  Members &  Guests Welcome .MIMBHHB  Portrait of Arthur Erickson  Iglauer's book a joy  Coast News, December 7,1981  Not for money  by Bob Hunter  I see lhal Jack McClelland, lhe Canadian  publisher, is fretting  because he's having trouble finding young  writers.  The under-30 types  aren't interested any  longer in writing the  Great Canadian Novel.  Ihey all want to write  the Greal Canadian  Script.  As though to prove  McClelland s point, an  overflow crowd of  would-be script writers  showed up al a lecture  sponsored by Ihe B.C.  Film Industry Association a couple ol months  ago.  The speaker was a  Hollywood writer named  Syd Field, who admitted  ihat he was only a  "moderately successful"  script writer, meaning  lhal he'd worked on  numerous scripts, but  hardly anything had actually made il lo the  screen.  Nevertheless, he was  obviously a quantum  leap further up the scale  than ihe I,(XX) of us  crowded together in the  Robson Square Media  Cenlre, listening,  Hollywood, of course,  is slill where il's al,  mmiewise. If you can  dig il.  Mr. field's main claim  lo fame was lhal lie  wrote a book aboul how  io write a script which is  regularly sold oul as  soon as il appears in a  Canadian hook slore.  In his book, Mr. Field  mentioned in passing  lhal lhe real forces lhal  gcneraic all the energy in  Hollywood are "greed  and power".  Ai his lecture he was  candid aboul the chances  of anyone's script ever  making ii io lhe screen.  Roughly Ihe same as  youi chances oi jumping  from ihe Lion's Gale  IJridge and surviving.  1 ihink ihose are approximately the same  odds against the  mMuscript of your  Great Canadian Novel  ever becoming an international best seller.  So.  Given that the odds  are equally long - why is  il, exactly, that young  Canadians are spurning  the durable thrill of having one's words bound in  hardcover for Ihe  fleeting glory of the big  screen?  cover   for   Ihe   fleeting  glory of the big screen?  Is il the hope of hearing your narrative in  Dolby Sound?  Is it a desperate craving io see your semi-  autobiographical main  character transformed  inlo Paul Newman?  is il the sick desire to  watch Bo Derek act out  the sex scenes ii look you  20 pages lo write?  Or is it the money?  I would hate lo Ihink  that young Canadian  writers have sunk to the  level of writing for  money! Who ever heard  of a Canadian writer  writing for money,  unless ii was Pierre Ber-  lon or Charles  Templelon?  No, ii can'l be true.  Deeper forces musi be al  work.  Let's lace il, whal Mr.  Field said aboul  Hollywood was true. Il  feeds on greed and  power.  And anyone who is attracted lo ihose sort of  ihings, scriptwriters included, musi be,.,  Well, the terrible irulh  must he lhal young  Canadian writers have  turned greedy and ihey  all want as much power  as ihey can possibly gel.  I chimin. I'm ashamed  of ihe upcoming literary  general ion in Canada.  Il's shocking.  Me? Whal was 1 doing  ihere unending,,Mr.  Field's led mo?  Oh.

Have a happy holiday.  who "proceeds to combine that with her own  excellent- taste as "a  viewer of buildings".  Edith Iglauer's writing  is as crisp, clear and  charming as is  Erickson's international  prize winning architecture. She brings out the  reflecting ponds, the  warm greenery, the setting and most of all, the  feeling of the man and  his work.  Arthur Erickson is intensely interested in  gardens but not in  gardening and so he provides us with a brief'how  lo do it' plan. You can  belter understand his  creative building-  landscape marriage when  you discover his extensive Japanese educational background and  how at home he is in  Japan and Asia.  "I am an idiot in  anything but the visual  realm," says Erickson  but, not a humble man,  of his Katsura Palace in  Japan "Katsura climaxed all previous experiences. Il is the most  complete work of art in  Japan and, I think, in  the whole repertory of  architecture, one of the  greatest compositions".  According to architect  Bruno Freschi "Arthur  is concerned with design  that reflects what he calls  timeless dimensions of  human behaviour".  Erickson says, "I  wonder whal it is about  the middle class I hate so  much. Conventions, I  think. Everything is done  for reasons other than  intrinsic worth. In a  creative field one has to  battle this." He "really  likes concrete" considering it "the marble of our  time."  Seven Stones is must  reading for architects,  artists, builders and contractors. It is splendid  reading for creative persons in all walks of life.  It is the good reading  that brings this  marvellous architectural  platter into focus.  Arthur Erickson is a  rare joy, adruly internationally famous Canadian.  The author, Edith Iglauer, lives mosl of ihe  year in Garden Bay on  lhe Sunshine Coasl. We  are fortunate to have  them both and this  superior Canadian book.  Author Iglauer gives  most of Ihe credil for lhe  'design and production of  her book lo Pender Harbour publisher Howard  While of Harbour  Publishing.

Fleming on Education  ���VcmPiW��H Photo  Television group praised  by Frances Fleming  Last week's column,  lamenting the lack of action on obtaining the  Knowledge Network for  the Sunshine Coast  brought a telephone call  from Susan Frizzell with  the best news one could  receive. There has been  action���and progress!  Following the May 6,  1981 article in the Coast  News, the Board of  School Trustees made an  initial application which  was turned down.  However, they remained  supportive, and a Suncoast Television Society  was formed to further  the cause of the  Knowledge Network.  On October 27, the  Suncoast Television  Society received status as  a society, and have submitted an application for  a grant to cover not one,  but three earth terminals, commonly referred to as dishes, which  will pick up signals for  the three cable systems  on the Peninsula.  I.  The Cablevision company is ready to act.  Cable 10 has already  broadcast interviews.  What is left to do? Two  things. Before the postal  rates go up, write a letter  of support for the  Knowledge Network to  this paper or to  Knowledge Network,  Box 3200, Victoria, B.C.  V8W 2H4. Then try to  save ten dollars out of  your December or  January budget and take  out a membership in the  society. Either or both of  these actions will help us  compete with some forty  other districts who have  similarly petitioned the  government to be included.  As far as is known,  Capilano College has not  been active in bringing  the Knowledge Network  to the Sunshine Coast,  but it is to be hoped that,  because some citizens  have taken the initiative,  they will at least express  support to the government and be prepared to  assist.  Network group  formed  The Suncoast Television Society, recently  registered under the  Societies' Act of British  Columbia with the stated  intent to bring the  Knowledge Network to  enrich the television service available to Sunshine Coast residents,  has made application to  the Ministry of Communications in Victoria  for a grant from PEETS  (Program for Education  and Entertainment  Television Services) to  cover the capital cost of  installing earth terminals  including dish antennas  for the Gibsons, Sechelt  and Pender Harbour  areas.  PEETS was set up by  the Government to provide assistance to communities such as ours, to  enable them to receive  Knowledge Network  programming.  Our application has  been acknowledged and  is to be processed with  others from some forty  other communities  across the province.  The Society would  welcome both new  members and support  from those who would  welcome the Knowledge  Network with its wide  variety of educational  and general interest programmes to their television fare. We think community support would  enhance our chances ot  getting a grant and might  speed its approval by the  Ministry.

I would like to join the Society and enclose \ ''  $10. for membership.  Name   Address   Telephone   D  No single' invention  has ever changed a  civilization as rapidly as  television. Some decisions as to the nature of  television programs must  be made. The I'nowledge  Network, like Educational Television in the  United States, provide  the opportunity for the  thinking citizen to influence the future of the  world.  Television, computers,  and all the electronic  devices which science is  developing and commercial interests are selling  will change our lives  more than we realize.  Most significantly, they  will change our study  habits.  For two hundred  years, people graduated  from high school, colleges and universities  witb study skills based  entirely on their reading  ability. The person who  could not read, who had  never attended school, or  who had been an indifferent scholar, was  relegated to manual  work and looked down  on by his fellow citizens  as being essentially no-  account.  A recent study of the  academic section of the  population, conducted  by Robert W. Wilson,  director of the Reading  Center at the University  of Maryland, documented a malaise among  them which he call  aliteracy. They are not  reading any more. He  discovered that their  reading skills, once so  highly tuned, had  deteriorated through  lack of use.  Business executives are  using long distance  telephones. Audio-visual  presentations are replacing written briefs.  Advertisements are colourful, and bear few  words. These highly  educated "aliterate"  citizens include bankers,  teachers, engineers, doctors, lawyers, and politicians. All are, by their  own confession,  aliterate.  Our high schools are  graduating young people  who are bright, well-  informed, competent  and knowledgeable! Not  one in a hundred is a  book scholar, in the old  fashioned sense of the  word. Students take their  .movie cameras and do  visual essays" of  autumn leaves.  Socials  studies students do tape-  recorded interviews in  place of written compositions. Much of their  education has come to  them through visual  aids; in responding with  the assistance of modern  technology, they are in  tune with the future.  They are "aliterate".  When Dr. Wilson  calls people aliterate, is  he commenting on the  people or on the changing times? If our high  school graduates are  aliterate, is that a reflection on a weakness in the  school or an acceptance  of alternate, styles of  communication? I would  tend to think the latter,  and I would not be  disturbed. Reading is going to be a secondary  skill, second to the ability to derive meaning  from, audio-visual -'  presentations; a rein-  forcer, not the primary  presenter of a lesson, t  The universe can now  come into our homes,  through ETV and the  Knowledge Network. It  may have tp elbow its  way in, and push aside a  few sitcoms, soap serials,  game shows. People  must have a choice.  There is more excitement  in learning and mastering than there is in being  amused hour after hour.  Television, controlled  and regulated to provide  the variety possible, is  the most promising  device ever invented to  help people live interesting and creative  lives. The Knowledge  Network is the first step  to a bright future.  The group who founded the Suncoast Television Society is to be congratulated. The will appreciate your support.  Supply   side   economics.  Governments in all  Western industrial countries are faced with the  twin ills of stagnant  growth in productivity  and persistently high inflation. The Reagan  answer to this problem  was the proposition that  by reducing taxes and  government interference  in society and business,  economic growth will rebound. It is assumed that  all the resources freed by  the tax and spending cuts  will end up financing  business investment.  This, combined with the  unfettered market,  would ignite the supply  side, bump up the rate of  productivity, supply  more jobs and generate  from increased economic  activity the revenue  shortfall that had been  created by the tax cuts.  Problems  Let us look now in  detail at the problem and  Reagan's answers. Firstly inflation: by the end  of 1979 the American annual inflation rate was  about 15%, it fell to  about 12% at the end of  1980; wages on the other  hand had not been increasing as fast, 8% increase in 1979, about  10% in 1980.  Secondly, the Gross  National Product: it had  been growing very slowly  during 1979 and in fact  there seemed to have  been a negative gain in  1980. Unemployment on  the other hand, while it  had been stable or  'declining in the middle  seventies, sharply increased in 1980 and ended-up at about 7 to 8%.  Thirdly, Productivity:  in private non-farm  areas productivity had  only grown by 1.3% over  the ten year period from  19ffl> to 1979.  The original predic-'  tiohs   were   that   the  Reagan plan would bring  inflation down to 5% by  1984, would create an explosion of work, 13  million new jobs by  1986; would increase  economic growth by 4%  to 5% a year from 1982  to 1986, would encourage growth in the  real gross national product from 1.1% this year  to 4.2% in 1982-1983  and would finally  balance the budget in  1984.  This was all to be accomplished by: firstly,  cutting income taxes by  10% from July 1st with  two more cuts promised  by mid 1983. The total  effect will be to cut personal tax by 28% from  current levels. Secondly,  industry would be allowed to write off new investments against tax  more quickly, that, it is  predicted, will bring a  $2.5 billion saving this  year, rising to $60 billion  in 1985. Thirdly, drastic  cutbacks in federal support to the synthetic fuel  industry. Fourthly, total  federal spending would  be reduced by $4 billion  in 1981, $41 billion in  1982, and $85 billion in  1984. Major social  security programmes  would remain ("a safety  net for the needy poor"  - shades of Eliza Doolit-  tle's father) but shag)  cuts in food stamps, free  school meals, job creation programmes and inner city aid. The military  budget, on the other  hand, increases from  24% of budget in 1981 to  32% in 1984. Finally, the  Federal Reserve Board  was encouraged to  restrict the growth of the  money supply through  high interest rates.  Whether or not the  budget and related  policies have had the required effect is a topic  'which we "will look at  next week.  G.D. (Jim) Coomes  B.CHydro is pleased to announce the appointment of G.

They continued  unbeaten defeating  Parkland from Sydney  and Nechako Valley  Secondary from  Vanderhoof.  In a preview of the  gold metal match,  Elpliinstone's attack was  awesome as they crushed  KLO 15-6, 15-1. Lisa  Bjornson totally  dominated the net  againsl KLO's top  player, Erminia Russo, a  B.C. Provincial Team  player and Shannon  Macey's serving and set-  ling paved the way for  Lisa's spikes. At that  point Elphinstone had  completed round robin  play wiih a perfect 8-0  record, winning each  malch 2-0, but it was a  lircd, hurling team that  again raced KLO in the  final.  Sandy Lynn played  with a badly bruised  elbow, Shannon Macey  and Lisa Bjornson all  were sick for the last  malch and lhe team was  dog tired.  In the final match  before a crowd of about  400 people Elphinstone  look a quick 11-5 lead,  bul   fell   behind   14-13  before Lisa Bjornson put  away three consecutive  spikes to pull out a narrow 16-14 win.  In the second game���a  long, painful one for the  Elphie team���and  coach���KLO defeated  the Cougars 15-6.  Hanna Jonas and  Shannon Macey shone as  Elphinstone pulled out  the third game 15-10.  Five foot four inch Hanna played her best game  of the tournament with  her great ability to jump  high into the air to consistently spike through  and around KLO's  blocking.  In the final game  Elphinstone ground out  a 15-11 win as Maria  Christian came through  for her best effort of the  year. With the score  13-11 Maria hammered a  spike down the line to  make it 14-11 and then  tipped the ball into the  middle for the final point  to win Elphinstone's second gold medal in three  years.  Hanna Jonas was  selected for the 2nd All  and Lisa Bjornson was  selected best spiker and  Most Valuable Player.  But this was a tournament won by team effort, by players who encouraged each other and  pulled each other up. It  was a team with a great  deal of characer and  fight, that was determined to win.  As one player playqd  poorly another came oft  the bench to play well.  Kirsten Storvold, Sharon  Enevoldson, Jacquie  Pearson and Sandy Lynn  played extremely well.  Special credit is due to  the two captains, Shannon and Lisa, who led  the team with superb  spiking, setting and hustle as well as with their  special ability to encourage and pull the  team together.  As a team it saved its  best volleyball for the  provincial championship. The team was a  delight to watch on and  off the court; a credit to  Elphinstone Secondary  and the Sunshine Coast.

This year, there is a real  camaradarie on the team  and it shows on the  court. Every game the  Seniors play, they really  perform well as a team,  which provides exciting  basketball for the fans.  The Cougars' season  opened with a convincing win over Pender Harbour, and then on  December 4th and 5th  the team played well at a  tournament in Agassiz.

On a five,  acre site of village property at Brother's Park,  the club has begun work  on a jogging and walking  trail, 8 -10 feet wide that  will include 11 exercise  stations designed to promote physical fitness.  In co-operation with  Participation, a nonprofit organization,  Kinsmen Clubs are helping to sel up Paniciparks  across Canada. Designed  for fairly inactive people, Participark combines self motivating exercises with a pleasant  outdoor experience for  anyone from age 5 to 85.  At most stations, a variety of age groups can use  the climbing and exercise  bars simultaneously to  encourage   family   par-  Motocross  Club  The Sunshine Coast  Motocross Club has been  given permission to lease  a portion of a nine acre  lot owned by the Village  of Gibsons to expand  their track.  George Giannakos, a  director and originator  of the Club approached  Gibsons council to ask  for a piece of the proper-  ty adjacent to the  Motocross track at trie  former Gibsons Dump  site on Stewart Road.  Giannakos told council  that the club needs to expand its track and  enlarge the parking are*a  to conform to Canadian  Motocross Association  (CMA) standards.  "In order for us to  have five events here  next year, we have been  told by CMA that we  have to conform to standards and enlarge our  track to 3/4 mile and  have sufficient  parking," said Giannakos. He told council  that the club has spent  $16,000 to build the  track and that it would  not be feasible to move  the site of the club to  another location.  Council agreed to give  the club a 5 year lease of  a portion of the property  immediately to the north  of the existing track.  Gibsons  Athletic  Association  The Gibsons Athletic  Association has been  working very hard on its  Brother's Park athletic  hall project. The association, besides its logo  design contest, has been  selling memberships at  $3 for a single membership and $5 for the family.     '  The  athletic hall is to include  showers, locker rooms,  equipment storage,  locker rooms, equipment  storage, kitchen  facilities, meeting  rooms, a social hall and  mini gym.

Last week I intended to  lear slrips off lhe  Regional Board Directors, some of whom appear to be more Interested in lhe welfare of  developers than in the  overall good of the community bin then I was  brought up short by my  had conscience, nol having enquired for the  health of Area "E" \  settlement plan since ihe  lasi meeting in June,  Having been  somewhat  carried away  with "mea culpa" i  didn't comment on whal  really worries me about a  director, supporting the  concerns of his/her area  and nol receiving the  support of oilier area  directors,  While   we   may   nol  have heard ihe lasi of  Cooper's Green, and the  whole  mailer   is   more  complex     lhan     ihe  newspaper  repori   have  implied,  il  seems some  soil ol a denial of the  democratic process when  ;i  community   such   as  llallmoou   Hay  can   he  overruled in iheir wishes.  Maybe, also, ihe people of Halfmoon Hay appeal io an outsider lo be  more together and'uniled  lhan Ihey really area-bin  llicj seem lo base a reeling of community' and lo  be willing io be actively  engaged in iis welfare, In  a way which many oilier  areas may well envy and  would    be    wise    lo  emulate, So ii was par-  lictitarl) sad lo see Iheir  wishes   voted   down.  Whal    happens   when,  alter  all   your  concern  and   Involvement   on  behalf of your community you arc voted down by  lhe directors  of other  areas, who may or may  not have done iheir  homework? Il doesn't  seem io me lo be lhe way  to encourage democratic, grassroois involvemenl, bui on ihe  contrary to fostet  cynicism.  I'm told lhal Area  "E" 's settlement plan is  nol lost bul alive and  well, bul undergoing a  new look or some son of  restructuring, if I were  of a suspicious nature, or  jusl normally paranoid I  inighi wonder why such  a re-wriie was necessary,  unless further delays  would be lo ihe advantage of those who wish lo  get their quarter acre lots  in place before the plan  goes through and which  would decrease the  number of lots per acre.  The Land Use Committee was in Gibsons  lasi week I understand lo  hear lhe pleas of those  who want io gel iheir  land oui of ihe Agricultural Reserve. As is  usual in Ihese cases, we  hear lhal ihe land in  question "won'l grow  anything". They should  ask Tied Holland.  Trouble is ihai we can  only ihink of agriculture  111 terms of a Prairie sec-  lion, or vasi rangelands.  We should visil  Swiizerland for example,  a country which has  similar terrain lo ours  and see how productive  such land can be, how  cherished and treasured  is every square yard.  Even the roadside verges  are used for forestry  nurseries, liny firs in  neal rows, and village  streets are lined wiih  I'ruil irees, apples, cherries and plums, making  lhe village an attractive  place lo live or visil  especially in spring as  well as supplying a bountiful harvest,  THINK Of US AS A  BUYwcwsttumcim CMIf  MATCHMAKER  lit I cusstuDsmwudDnroo'  -    Too long have we  relied on oilier lo supply  our fruits and vegetables  and Ihe wriling is on lhe  wall lhal ii won't be  forever.  It'll be a shame to see  ihose wide open spaces  on Pran Road crammed  cheek by jowl wilh  houses when Ihere is  such a need for smallholdings on which a  family can be almosl sell  sufficient and sell or  irade Iheir surpluses wiih  Iheir   neighbours.   So  many   of   us   would  welcome a source of eggs  Irom free range hens and  fresh milk, cream or bui-  ler,  * * *  Those who avail  themselves of the services of Gibsons Posl  Office, and who doesn'i  at this time of year,  should admire the smart  new flag-pole.  I'm nol sure why ihe  old one wasn't considered good enough any  longer, bul obviously the  Teds had money burning  Iheir pockets or perhaps  ii is io celebrate Ihe new  Crown Corporation,  Anyway lhe flagpole  itself I believe cosl us  something in the  neighbourhood of $7(X)  which doesn'i include  either the transportation  from Ontario or ihe  labour and materials lo  erect it!  The ways of Governmeni are indeed passing  si range, ihe Posi Masler  General only looking  alter the day to day ac-  liviiies of moving ihe  mail.

It has  been prominent in pain-  ling, architecture, music  and literature and has  figured in legends,  customs, heraldry and  religion.  Roses arc used in  medicines and rose hips  are an excellent sourcfc of  vitamin "C". Rose  petals can be used in confectionary cooking, for  flavouring desserls, and  for scented oils used in  cosmetics and perfumes.  Bul lei us now consider roses as whal Ihey  arc io mosl British Columbia gardeners, a  delightful source of  beauly and fragrance  and our favourite  flower.  Roses have a greal  variety of growih and  habit, which makes ihem  useful in almosl any  landscape situation. As  garden flowers ihey  possess many admirable  qualities, forms ranging  from delicate singles to  ihe beautifully  sculptured modern  hybrids, all colour excepi  clear blue, and sizes  from one-half Inch  miniatures to seven inch  prize blooms. Mosl roses  are found in ihe  temperate areas of ihe  northern hemisphere,  bul a few are found  above ihe Arctic circle  and some, al high levels,  in the topics. Roses are  erect, trailing, or climbing shrubs, usually with  l horns.  The flower stalks expand Into a fleshy urn  shaped seed receptacle  popularly called the hip.  The hips are usually  brightly coloured lo al-  iract birds, which eal  Ihem and thus assisl in  dissemination of ihe  seeds.  There are numerous  roses native lo Norili  America, bui musi arc  cultured roses, wiih the  sculptured shapes and  familiar fragrances  originate in Asia. Roses  hybridize readily so dial  many new roses are Introduced lo I lie markei  annually.   The   main  Ihroughoui lhe province  lor ihose wishing to  comment on ihe application.

They may be  propagaied by seeds,  culling, layering, grafting and budding. Budding is lhe mosl common  method, budding ihe  desired clone onto a hardy understock.  Roses thrive best in  our area in full sun.  Drainage is mosl important, and where drainage  is poor, beds should be  raised. Avoid areas  where roois of Irees or  oilier shrubs may invade  lhe bed, compel ing for  waler and nutrients. Pro-  lection against strong  winds should be provided support when  necessary. Good sandy  loam soil, wiih addition  of organic fertilizers, is  desirable. Well rolled  manure, compost or  bone meal are preferred.  The soil should be  neither acid nor too  alkaline, and additives  used as indicated. Roses  should be watered deeply  during ihe warm season.

For Sale, For Rent, etc.  rm 11111111 mm  nn  m  :n  mmi  n  in  nr  NO. OF ISSUES  by Bradley J. Benson  On November 30th,  1981, Mrs. K. Butler  wrapped up 24 years in  real estate by turning  over the insurance side  of her business to Suncoast Agencies Ltd. and  closing the books on K.  Butler Realty Ltd. Non  confidential records  spanning these years of  development on the Sunshine Coast will be turned over to Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum.  Mrs. K. Butler (who  allows her given name to  be understood as Kay)  came from Vancouver to  the Sunshine Coast on  January 22nd, 1952,  with "a desperate need  to find work" to support  her two children. This  she found . at Port  Mellon, where she worked as a lab technician  and first aid attendant  for five years.  Upon the recommendation of her neighbour,  Harold Wilson, she  studied and passed the  tests for a real estate  salesman's licence.  Another five years were  spent as a real estate  salesperson working for  various agencies on the  Coast, until, in July,  1962, she opened her  own office, which was to  remain in the same  building in Lower Gibsons for the next 19  years. During this time  she has been active in the  Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce and the  Tourist Association.  On Dec ember 2nd,  1981, the Coasl News in  terviewed Mrs. K. Butler  and her husband Ed.  Q:     How do you view  the Real Estate Market  today?  A: Mrs. K. Butler:  There was a boom at the  end of last year and at  the beginning of this  year. Things were out of  control. It is now in a cycle; 1 don't see today as a  doomsday picture, just a  cycle. It will level off. It  has to level off  somewhere.  Q: Have you seen this  trend happen before?  A: Mrs. K. Buller: Not  to this extent.  Q: Just how much has  property gone up in price  over the years?  A: Mrs. K. Butler: In  1965 we had a series of  50' x 268' lots for sale on  Hillcrest Avenue in Gibsons. The price ranged  from $250 lo $450. This  past year one of those  lots was priced at  $55,000.  Mr. Ed Buller: But  remember that prices  everywhere have gone  up. It used to be said that  a good pair of logging  boots would cost a day's  pay. That was $10 then.  Today that is about $175  and still holds true.  Q: How can people  who do not own property today afford to take  on ownership?  A: Mrs. K. Buller:  Without going into  hock, it's impossible.  Mr. Ed Butler:   It has  always been impossible.  The first place we bought  was nearly unlivable, but  we fixed it up. When we  were younger there was  no pressure to have  things all at once. Today  there is pressure to have  a new home and  everything new all at  once.  Q: What do you think  of the proposed restructuring of our municipal  and regional government  on the Sunshine Coast?  A: Mrs. K. Butler: I  don't think I would like  to see it. On the Sunshine  Coast we are individuals  and I'm afraid we would  get lost in the shuffle.  We would lose some of  our character.  Q: Now that you are  retired, what are you going to do?  A: Mrs. K. Buller:  Nothing. It is nice to get  up in the morning and  say - what can I do today? what should 1 do  today? not - I've got  to get to the office, I've  got to get to the office.  by Chak-Chak  One kind of fresh  seafood that is available  in this area now is  prawns. These delicious  morsels can be obtained  from both Gibsons and  Sechelt Fish Markets.  You may also buy them  from the local prawn  boats or fishermen when  you see their signs posied  at various places along  the highway.  Prawns may be cooked in boiling waler. You'  will not need a large  saucepan If you remove  the heads before cooking. Place the prawn tails  in salted {Vt cup salt lo 1  ql. waler) boiling waler  and cook for two  minutes from the lime  the water returns to the  boil. Drain and let cool.  Do not rinse with cold  water as this washes a lot  of the flavour away.  Large prawns, after  ihe shell is removed, are  good deep fried in batter. Here is a simple and  good batter.  Combine 2 eggs with 1  cup minus 1 tablespoon  of cold water, beat until  frothy. Beat in Vt cup  unsifted flour and Vi  teaspoon salt until blended - don't beat the flour  any more than necessary.  Set the bowl of batter inside another bowl with  ice, to keep it cold.  When 1 do prawns for  myself, I buy the cheaper  small and mixed sizes  and I prefer to stir-fry  Ihem in a wok.  Stir-fried Prawns  1 lb. small lo medium  prawns  2 cloves garlic (peeled  and crushed)  4 thin slices fresh ginger  2 Ibsp. ketchup (tomato)  2 tbsp. sherry, sake or  cooking wine  1 ibsp. soy sauce  I isp. sugar or honey  1 ibsp. starch  2 ibsp. cold water  Method  Heat up wok and use  about Vi cup cooking  oil,, add garlic and  ginger, cook 1 min., then  add prawns and stir-fry  for 2 min. Now add  previously mixed ketchup, wine, soy sauce  and sugar, stirring in  wilh prawns and thickening with the starch-water  mixture. As soon as the  sauce thickens, turn out  Into a healed bowl.  This is a tasty dish but  is very messy as you have  to use your lingers a lot.  First suck the sauce off  the prawn and then  remove the shell before  eating the meat. Serve  with crisp vegetables and  rice or crisp bread rolls  and butter and a dry  white wine. Have a dish  for the prawn shells and  lots of paper napkins.  Give it a try, I'm sure  you will enjoy prawns  done ihis way as 1 do.  Sea you.

The  station itself consisted of  several gray, drab looking buildings hidden  away miles from  anywhere deep in lhe  forests of New  Brunswick. The sole  road leading either to or  from il was not onlv  deep rimed and unpaved  bul was heavily guarded,  not as one would expect  by members of the Air  Force bin by the Army.  The compelling reason  for its isolation and for  the secrecy and grim  looking, khaki-clad  guards was because il  was an ordnance depol,  in other words, a site for  storing of explosives so  necessary to further any  modem war efforl. After  lhe spit and polish of  what had formerly been  the Onlario Agricultural  College al Guelph, with  iis beautifully manicured  lawns, shrubberies and  stately trees, this was a  depressing lei down and  I was more lhan happy  lhal my stay there was  short.  The loial complement  was around a hundred  men and, in view of the  fact that the former  N.C.O. in charge of the  kitchen was in a guardhouse somewhere in the  province awaiting a  court-martial and ihey  had nol yel goi around  io replacing him, il is nol  difficult to imagine lhe  confusion and chaos lhal  reigned. Although I was  in no way responsible for  il, in fact I was not on  duty ai the lime, we  almosl burned the kitchen lo the ground when  some idiol masquerading  as a cook dumped a  whole baskei of raw, wet  potatoes Into a container  of smoking, hot fat. In  no time al all lhe grease  Ignited and flames were  licking up lhe walls  before anyone  remembered to sound  lhe fire alarm or grab a  fire extinguisher. Luckily  ihe blaze was contained  before the whole  building went up in  smoke. Needless to  relate, there was a greal  deal of griping among  lhe men that nighl when  a cold supper was served  and   many   suggestions-  made as lo whal Ihey  would like lo do with1  these blankeiy-blank  cooks.  Aboul a monlh later 1  was transferred to No.  2Y station a few miles  from the city of Monc-  lon, N.B. Il was inlcnd-  ed as a holding unit for  lhe large number of men  that were being trained  under the Commonwealth Training  Scheme bul lhe  buildings, at lhe lime of  my arrival, were far  from complete. The kitchen was teeming with  carpenters, plumbers  and oilier iradesmen,  most of Ihem civilians,  hammering, banging and  screwing away merrily,  seemingly oblivious to  any rules of sanitation  that should prevail in a  place where food was being prepared and served.  The station was not  yet operational nor ai  full strength so we were  feeding only around a  hundred or so men. The  N.C.O. i/c of lhe kitchen was a corporal by  Ihe name of McNulty  and although "Mac"  was a hell of a nice  fellow in all respects, on  Regional board briefs  The regular board  meeting of the Sunshine  Coasl Regional Dislricl  was held in the village offices in Sechelt, Thursday, November 26th.  Among items discussed  were the following:  Mr. J.E. Belanger of  Park Avenue, Roberts  Creek, presented a letter  from his lawyer regarding an alleged infrac-  lion of a zoning by-law.  As reported earlier in the  Coast News, Mr.  Belanger, who operates a  welding business on land  designated for residential  use (R2), is asking lhe  regional board for lime  (18 months) lo move his  business lo a more  suitable location.  Director Harry Almond, represenling Area  D residents who have objected to Mr. Belanger's  business operating in  their area, asked ihe  regional board lo direel  its lawyers lo iniliale  legal action againsl Mr.  Belanger.  Mr. Belanger's  lawyers, Reid and  Associates, question lhe  board's ruling and slate  lhal there may be as  many as 350 small  businesses on lhe Coasl  In contravention of the  same by-law and ii seems  unfair lo single oul Mr.  Belanger for attention.  Further, the letter  stales that Mr. Belanger  hopes to v -irk oul an  amicable agreement with  lhe board regarding the  lime   limii   for   Mr.  Belanger's move.  The board voled to  hand the leller over to ils  planner and lawyers.  Mobile home park.  A leller from local  carpenter, Michael  Albrechl, requesting thai  lhe board intervene wilh  the mobile home park  operator on Browning  Road to install small,  one-storey homes rather  than mobile homes on  his properly was considered. Mr. Albreclu's  letter argued that the  construction of homes  by local craftsmen would  be more beneficial to ihe  economy of lhe Coasl  than the bringing in of  mobile homes.  While the board  members were sympathetic with Mr.  Albrecht's proposal,  ihey fell ihe whole mailer of home conslruction  should be referred lo lhe  Real Eslate Board for  advice.  Wilson Creek erosion.  A letter from Tyson  Road residents requesting regional board  assistance in correcting  an erosion problem on  Wilson Creek was  discussed. The board  voled to refer the matter  to the departments of  if  highways and federal  fisheries and the  Agricultural Land Commission in order to determine the agency responsible.  Provincial Emergency  Program.  A report from Mr.  McPhee, area coordinator for the Provincial Emergency Program, regarding potential communications problems on ihe Coasl in the  event of a disaster, was  referred to the board's  PEP committee.  Henderson Road.  A letter from Minislcr  of Highways Alex  Fraser, acknowledged  reccipl oT the board's  concern aboul ihe condilion of Henderson Road  in Roberis Creek. The  leller stated the board's  concern "will be kepi in  mind when next year's  day labour programme is  being prepared".  The letter goes on to  slate that it is hoped  "modest improvements  being made Ihis fall will  be of benefit to road  users". Direcior Almond  questioned the "modest  improvements" and suggested thai in iheir  modesty Ihey were un-  noticeable.  his own admission, he  knew very little about  cooking. He had been an  accountant in private  life, working for a large  firm in Halifax and how  he ended up as a cook in  the R.C.A.F. only he  and the "higher powers"  could know. Even  though many of his  assistants were trainees  I'rofn various cooking  schools and had little experience, we were all getting along fine until out  of a clear blue sky came  the bombshell that shook  up all our lives.  I remember that we  were just cleaning up  after breakfast when a  highly agitated young  chap arrived from the  orderly room with a  message for the corporal. On reading it,  poor old "Mac" blanched and almost keeled  over before handing it to  me. I cannot recall the  exact wording but the  gist of the statement was  that we were to expect an  additional 600 or more  for supper that night and  to prepare for them accordingly. Apparently  there was some kind of a  contagious epidemic raging at the holding station  near Halifax and it had  been placed under  quarantine for an indefinite period. Consequently, this large contingent of men were being detrained at Monc-  ton and I can only  presume that the  "brass" in Ottawa were  either uninformed that  our station was incomplete and not ready  for such -n invasion or  that they did know but  chose to ignore the fact.  When I look back on it  now, I am not only  amazed that we were  able to cope with such an  emergency but how we  ever got all these men  housed and fed during  the two or three weeks  5  \\   w  worm, warmer, warmest.  daniodown  I    *>\�� jIKjj!

Although I had, and  slill have, little respect  for the general run of  commissioned officers, I  must admit that we  would never have been  able to accomplish the  formidable task ahead of  us without the help of  one Sqdn.

Wayne Rowe  Re: Lawyers' Fees  One aspect of the  lawyer/client relaiion-  ihip which seems to be  replete with misunder-  '.Hiding and misconcep-  lion is lhal of the  lawyer's fees.  It is, 1 suspect, not un-  "iiinion lo hear clients  protest the "exorbitant"  fees ihat they have been  issessed for an allegedly  simple matter. Such  i omplalnts are perhaps  imply in the nature of  Mings and are to be ex-  pected irrespective of the  amount of the bill.  More likely, though,  ���uch complaints stem  rom a lack of com-  municaiion which in turn  generates a misconcep-  lion as to ihe amount of  'uirk involved and its  eventual cost.  In fairness, I must  ihat the blame for this  lack of communication  must, in most instances,  fall squarely on the  shoulders of the lawyer.  It is incumbent upon the  lawyer to ensure thai his  or her client is apprised  of the likely cost of the  proceedings or where  that is not possible to inform the client of the  manner in which the fee  will be determined.  In the past lawyers  have tended to shy away  from such discussions  perhaps believing such  matters to be undignified  or unworthy of the profession. Today,  however, most lawyers  are prepared to discuss  these matters in a forthright manner.  Perhaps I could  digress for a moment to  say that the reluctance of  lawyers to frankly  discuss  fees  wiih  their  clients is well-  , rooted in the profession.  ] The solemn black gown  that lawyers wore in  court once had a small  pouch sewn into the back  of it so that a client could  unobstrusively slip payment into the pouch  thereby allowing the  lawyer   to   avoid   tar  nishing himself by handling money from his  client.  There are a number of  factors which can have a  bearing on the amount  of the fee which is assessed in any given situation.  These include the time  and labour spent on the  matter,  the complexity  Police News  GIBSONS RCMP  On the 27th: A stereo  valued at $1,000 was  stolen from a residence  in the Gibsons area.  On the 30th: A Homelite  XL12 chainsaw valued at  $400 was stolen from the  back porch of a Gibsons  residence. The theft  could have occurred any  lime after the 24th.  On Ihe 1st: On Lower  Road in Roberts Creek a  goat was attacked by a  pack of dogs and was injured lo such an extent it  had to be destroyed.  On Ihe 3rd: A 10-speed  bicycle, burgundy in colour, was stolen from lhe  Cedars Plaza area.  The break-in of a  residence on the Port  Mellon Highway is still  under investigation until  owner can determine  what was stolen in the  theft.  Gibsons RCMP held  the first road block of  the season on the evening  of the third. They checked a total of 135 cars. As  a result of this, 18 warnings were issued, one  driver had his licence  suspended, four motor  vehicle act charges were  laid and one liquor  seizure was applied.  SECHELT RCMP:  On the 29lh: While peo-  ple were attending Ihe  of the issue, the amount  of money in dispute and  the results obtained to  name but a few.  These factors, of  course, will not be relevant in every instance.  The fee will often be set  by certain commonly accepted methods which 1  will discuss next week.  services at the Bethel  Baptist Church, thieves  entered a couple of  unlocked cars and stole  two ladies' purses containing money, credit  cards and identification.  Thieves broke into the  Chatelech Secondary  School over the weekend  and stole a number of  small items belonging to  the school. The matter is  still under investigation.  On the 1st: Twenty-  three-year old Sechelt  resident Dean Johnson  will be charged with  breaking, entering and  theft following the theft  of the personal belongings of a passenger  travelling with Maverick  Coach Lines.

I've  been a pari of this program here on lhe Sunshine Coasl since  Sepiember 9th. I can actually say lhal every day  has been undoubtedly a  new experience. I have  been living on the lip of  Keats Island by Salmon  Rock, or, as others know  il, Home Island.  My group's accommodations were provided by the Baptist Church  Camp. It's a small cabin  overlooking Howe  Sound. We use propane  for lighting and wood  slove for warmth (that's  only if someone has  remembered lo chop  some wood), if nol we  divvy oul the blankets  and pray for a warm  nighl. There are eleven  parlicipanls in all living  in the two bedroom  cabin. (My leader sleeps  in a room we call 'the  closet'). 1 must mention  thai living with eleven  other strangers, from all  over Canada, is an experience in itself. We  became like family  almosl overnight. Our  survival or sanily  depends on ii.  We have been working  for the Bapiisl Church  Camp since we came  here in Sepiember. We  have painted iheir cabins  blue (until we were  literally   'blue  in   the  face'), cut out trails for  summer campers and  presenl collage leasers io  use.  Our day begins wiih  group exercises al 6:30  a.m. The two people pul  in charge of the kitchen  for the week work busily  in Iheir domain lo make  breakfast for len hungry,  sleepy-eyed people. The  possibility of everything  going right is totally  unheard of with us. I  remember my week in  the kitchen as one of  many problems and  headaches.  We ran out of propane  for the slove and when  the cylinders were taken  to Gibsons, refilled and  brought back, we forgot  to relight our icebox.  The fridge became warm  along with the food it  contained. Our water  pump broke, loo, so we  brought our water up  from the well. Our pipes  only run cold water into  our kitchen, so we heat  our water in pots on top  of our stove. So, when  our propane runs out at  the same time as our  water pump breaks  (which is broken more  often than it works), it  all adds up to a typical  day. It was the same  week they decided to put  strips of cedar* on our  ceiling in the kitchen.  Our kitchen is small to  begin with, without four  extra people, two ladders  holding twelve foot  boards for standing on,  not to mention the tools  and nails scattered  everywhere.  I had ten starved people coming home for  supper after a busy day  of painting and cutting  trails and 1 couldn't even  open the oven door, or  get near the fridge or  cupboards. We finally  ended up cooking supper  on a campfire. We carried our pols, pans and  utensils out to a rock  (known to us as 'Exercise  Rock'). There we proceeded to make Tacos by  firelight (as flashlights  that work are of great  scarcity). This is all a  part of using every possible resource when in a  crisis. The funny thing  is, the once-called  'crises' are now a part of  our everyday living and  without them our lives, if  I dare say, might almost  be normal.

For the past two weeks  I have been billeted with  a young couple here in  Gibsons and I have been  helping out at the Coast  News. This part of the  program has been one of  great enrichment in learning how a paper is put  together. Last year I attended University of  Waterloo in Ontario. I  was enrolled in Fine Arts  and Management and  Advertising. The experience I have gained at  Coast News has given me  the confidence I need to  pursue a career in advertising. Thanks to all of  you at Coast News and  those of you who have  helped out my fellow  participants.  ��� Games  ��� Puzzles  j ���Model* 'Toys  ���Stocking Stutters  TOYS & HOBBIES  FOB ALL AGES  | Sunnycrest Mall.

Marina receives  tentative approval  The proposed site of the Gibsons Municipal  Marina has received tentative approval for a License  of Occupation from the Ministry of Lands, Parks  and Housing. A letter to the village from R.F.  Gilmour, Manager of Land Administration was  received at Gibsons council meeting Tuesday night.  The Ministry will approve a License of Occupation  rather lhan a waterlot lease, because the future  marina sile has not been legally surveyed. The license  would allow the village to enter into an agreement  with lhe federal government to begin dredging in Ihe  bay area.  "I am pleased lo confirm that the Ministry is in  agreement in principal with your proposal and would  be prepared to gram you a License of Occupation  over the unsurveyed Crown foreshore."
