 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings.  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  82.1  the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  Bradley J Benson Photo  Motocross meet great success  The first Sunshine Coast Motocross last Sunday was, despite rain, a definite success. 181 racers competed in 14 events, with seven  local entrants. Dale Maldel of Sechelt won the 250 Junior event and Steve Hayward also of Sechelt placed third in the 125 Senior  event. Many of the best motocross racers in Canada attended. There were an estimated 1000 people present including riders and  their families. If the Canadian Motocross Association approves, the Sunshine Coast Motocross Club will host another  motocross, May 24.  Koch questions validity  Ratepayers protest Sechelt plan  by Fran Bourassa  Mayor Bud Koch stated at the Wednesday night Sechelt  Council committee meeting thai he feels the detailed examination  of the Draft Community Plan is nol "the general consensus of the  Sechelt Ratepayers Assocation".  Though he feels that "relevant questions were raised" he  questioned the number of people Ihe association represenled.  The detailed six-page document from the Ratepayers  Association urged that the Draft Community I'lan not be given  final approval in its present form.  Former Mayor of Sechelt. Merv Boucher, who is the president  of the Ratepayers Association, told the Coast News that when the  Village Council asked for input from the association, a new  executive had just been appoinlcd.  "Because of the urgency of the matter by the time set by council  for the public hearing (mid-March). Ihe Association did not have  time to set a general meeting with the Ratepayers", said Merv  Boucher.  But 60 copies of the detailed examination of the report were  circulated among the Ratepayers said Boucher and received  "nothing but approval". An additional 40 copies were requested.  The report itself was submitted to the executive, and unanimously  accepted.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas. chairman of the planning committee  has cancelled the date of the public hearing and changed it to an  information meeting set for April 27. The Ratepayers will have a  general meeting to discuss Ihe plan on Tuesday. March 24.  In the general review of the examination of the Draft  Community Plan, the association executive slated lhat "no  deadline should be set for the final adoption of the plan as the view  of as many persons and organizations as possible should be  solicited", and "the well-being of the general populace, not just  pressure groups, should be given consideration".  ; In capsulizcd form here are. some of ihe specific opinions  expressed in the examination of Community I'lan 1980 by the  Ratepayers:  "Community Plan l980wouldre/onelhefourlolsonlheNorth  West corner of Cowrie and trail across from the Shell Station  from residential to commercial. Ihis is strenuously opposed, as is  the proposed zoning of the balance of lot 7 on the south side of  Teredo to comprehensive zoning.  "These are the two most desirable residential areas in the village  and should be developed to ihe maximum residential density.  Modern planners strongly oppose commerce on both sides ofa  main highway and Trail Avenue is a natural buffer zone and  should be kept as such."  ��� The report also opposes the mixture of retail, service, office,  residential and tourist in an area adjacent to the downtown core  in this area as il negates the overall concept of restricting  development that would otherwise draw business away from the  downtown core and result in a ribbon of development along the  Highway. It is considered "improper planning" by the assocation.  ' "Reduction in the size of parking spaces is opposed as it was so  strenuously at the July II, 1979 public hearing meeting.  ���: The plan indicates that as Trail Avenue is destined to be a main  feeder route, plans for rebuilding Trail Avenue from Spindrift to  Tide should have priority as ihis section of Trail Avenue was  constructed over four feet of bog."  The report recommends that both Wharf and Teredo Streets  should be constructed as four-lane streets with two lanes  designated for parallel parking.  It is strongly urged by the association that work from Dolphin  to Teredo on Wharf be given top priority. The easterly and  westerly boundaries of Wharf should be established and curbs  constructed immediately and parallel parking spaces identified.  Driving on this block is hazardous and backing out into a main  thoroughfare is an offence under the Motor Vehicle Act as well.  The Ratepayers Association supports the recommendation of  the removal of traffic from the Boulevard but the hammerhead  parking at the south end of the streets is opposed as the Boulevard  sliuuld be kept as an unobstructed walkway from the casteny  village boundary to the small park at the end of Shorncliff that has  been designated "The Snicket" by council.  The concept of developing a town centre in the general area of  the present village office is supported. Recommended is the  expansion of the library in its present location to the stage where it  will qualify under the provisions of the Library Act.  "The foregoing suggestions are submitted in the spirit of  constructive criticism", finishes the report. "It is realized that J.L.  Northey & Associates Ltd., are new to the area and do not have  the background knowledge of the citizens who have lived in the  vicinity for years".  Mayor Koch commented on this part of the report saying, "in  that case the planner is not biased since he doesn't live here and is  not affected by pressure groups".  Council made the observation that the advice would entail as  Alderman Charles Lee stated, "sizable costs that are not within  our scope".  Boucher, the president of the Ratepayers Association, suggests  lhat the cost factors should be thought of in the long term view for  planning as priorities for the village.  Sechelt council will reply to the examination of the Draft  Community Plan by the Ratepayers Association at the  Wednesday council meeting.  Will open this week  Pender Pool  problem solved  by Fran Bourassa  If all goes well the Pender Pool should open its doors by next  weekend. A very wary delegation from the Aquatic Society met  with the regional board to discuss and amend the proposed  management agreement.  "We want it all down in writing" said Shirley Vader, president  of the society, in reference to recent problems with verbal  agreements.  The terms of management were given a raking over for two  hours in the offices of the SCRD on Thursday afternoon. Each  item was discussed to include the wishes of both parties.  The Aquatic Society was designated the recognized  management body of the Aquatic Centre by the SCR D, "We got  what we wanted in our scope of managing the pool, even though  we are still subject to the regional board's approval," said Vader in  a conversation with the Coast News.  "We are happy with the agreement, which gives us control and  protection concerning the society's function at the pool." she  continued, "such as the supervision of staff and setting our own  admission and rental rates."  The pool will open on the weekend pending the signing of the  management agreement on Thursday and the quoting of the  society's name in the regional board's insurance policy to insure  their protection in the case of an accident at the pool.  Another stipulation made by the society was that the proper  channels for communications be established. The Aquatic Society  will deal directly with the regional board. "We will deal with the  school board and they will deal with us", said Chairman David  Hunter of the SCRD at the board meeting that evening.  He also asked that a copy of a recommendation to the finance  committee be sent to the society stating that in the future, from the  allocation of joint-use funds, pre-committed dollars will be set  aside (I mil) for operating and maintenance costs. This is also a  recommendation made for the future use of all joint-use funded  projects.  Delivered to every address on the Coast  March 17, 1981  Volume 35, Number 11  Comes up with another $100,000  Regional Board rescues joint-use  facility in Roberts Creek  Prompt action at the regional board meeting held on March 12  may have saved the joint community-hall-gymnasium for Roberts  Creek. The joint-use facility seemed endangered last week when  the Department of Education refused a school board request for  funding for a full-size facility because of rising construction costs.  Last year the school board converted the activity room at  Roberts Creek Elementary School into two classrooms with the  $91,000 saved by not building two classrooms slated for the joint  use facility. Despite the fact that the children of Roberts Creek do  npl have a gymnasium the Department of Education ruled the  school ineligible for funds for the construction of a full-sized  facility.  The regional board recommendation will see funds for both  1981 and 1982 allocated to the Roberts Creek facility to a  maximum of $190,000 with the product of two mils going over  two years going towards the maintenance and operation of the  facility.  The 1980 funds, amounting to $80,000, arc presently being used  in the construction of the Davis Bay school gymnasium.  The original estimated cost of the Roberts Creek facility was  close to $370,000 but after a study was conducted the figure came  in at $650,000 exclusive of the architectural fees. With the cost lo  an individual taxpayer at S mils or $123 a year with 25 years to  pay, the project seemed unrealizable.  "We promised the taxpayers that we would go no higher than 2  mils. It was doubtful that they would go for a reduced facility at an  elevated cost of 3 mils," explained Area D Director Harry  Almond. "What we are looking for is a community hall that can be  used as a gymnasium, not a gymnasium that can be used as a  community hall."  The only solution that had been offered, prior to the board's  recommendation, was to cut back on construction extras, which  would have defeated the intended purpose of the facility. Among  the first items to go would have been the special architectural  designs for acoustics in the proposed centre.  Adds voice to villages  SCRD protests pipeline route  The board of the Sunshine Coast Regional District has added  its voice to that of the villages of Gibsons and Sechelt in protest  against the Provincial government's decision to go with B.C.  Hydro on the construction of a natural gas pipeline to serve  Vancouver Island, bypassing Powell River, the Sunshine Coast  arid Squamish.  I 'Area A Director Joe Harrison volunteered to join Mayor  Simpson of Powell River in Victoria March 27 if a meeting can be  arranged with Premier Bennett on that date, but Mackenzie MLA  Don Lockstead. who met with the Premier last week, says he  doubts the Socred government can be pressured into changing its  mind.  "Their minds seem to be made up and they don't want to be  cgnfused with facts," Lockstead told the Coast News last week.  Lockstead has met with Energy Minister Bob McClelland and  questioned him in the house, pointing out that though the  southern "Hydro" route is 60 million dollars cheaper than the  northern route proposed by Westcoast Transmission, B.C. Hydro  his never, to his knowledge, brought a project in at cost.  "Once again it looks like we'll be facing massive cost overruns  ��Jh. the taxpayers bearing the brunt," Lockstead said.  Lockstead pointed out that though McClelland has promised  the decision will be reviewed by the Public Utilities Commission,  B.C. Hydro has already begun calling tenders for some aspects of  the project  "They're just going through the motions," Lockstead said, "The  review is a smokescreen."  Lockstead said he has repeatedly pointed out that the 60 million  dollars additional capital expenditure involved in the northern  route would, according to Westcoast Transmission's estimates, be  offset by revenues received from their ability to serve the  industrial communities of Powell River, Port Mellon, Woodfibrc  and Squamish, as well as some 40,000 residences in those areas,  but though pressure is mounting against the decision the  government shows no inclination to reconsider.  The letter from the municipality of Powell River to the SCRD  also states:  "It is our contention that the unit delivery cost of natural gas to  the users both on the Mainland and Vancouver Island would be  less if served by a northern route due to the millions of additional  dollars which would be generated by the fertilizer plant which  Westcoast Transmission had proposed to build in Powell River if  natural gas were available. The economic benefits from such a  project would extend well beyond Powell River and in fact it has  been stated that at least $11 billion would be realized by the  Province and Canada over the projected life of such a project  when considering the various levels of taxation and income from  new service industry jobs."  Renegades off to Hawaii this week  Bradley J Benson Ftioto  The Sechelt Renegades soccer team leave this Thursday for Hawaii to compete for the Royal Hawaiian World Soccer Crown.  (See page 12 for the names of the team members)  Gibsons Pool  gets area help  Gibsons Swimming Pool will be bailed out of its financial  problems with the help of 75% of two mils to be gathered from the  village and outlying areas on a per capita basis.  Two representatives from Electoral areas E and F and two from  the Village of Gibsons will form a commission, as asked for in the  November referendum, to allocate the monies collected.  "It is felt that because the outlying areas do use the pool  facilities that they should help with the financing." said Director  Jim Gurney, representative of Area E.  The other 25% of the collection will be used to develop and  repair parks in and around the Village of Gibsons. Brothers Park,  and others acquired through dedication from subdivision  developments were cited to be on the commissions list, Director  Gurney told the Coast News. The financing of the pool will be on  an ongoing yearly basis with a five year plan.  In a discussion of this recommendation at the regional board  meeting on Thursday night, Directors Harry Almond and Joe  Harrison expressed the opinion that they felt a regional plan was  needed for the whole coast for recreational use.

Ihey sal down with Ihe I'ender  Aquatic Society and drew up an agreement  acceptable to both groups and they  stickhandlcd around the impasse on the  joint-use facility in Roberts Creek which  developed when rising costs put the  original estimate of cost much higher and  the Department of Education declined to  base anything lo do with the situation.  I he flexibility and good will evidenced  by the regional board is proof, if proof be  needed, of the advantages which accrue  from dealing with local government as  opposed  to centralized, far-off govern  ments. The school board, dealing with the  latter manifestation, can only raise taxes.  When it comes to the apportionment of  those tax funds it must go cap in hand to  the centralized source, ll is a form of  taxation with little representation and it  will continue on its rigid and inflexible way  until either the B.C. School ��� Trustees  Association or the B.C. Teachers Association or both get behind a move for more  local autonomy.  And, yes, the prompt and co-operative  way in which the regional board addressed  itself to the problem reflects very well  indeed on that body in the light of recent  co-operative events.  A breath oS fresh air  What a pleasure to read Ihe words ofa  man who slill knows how to disagree likea  gentleman. We refer to the letter to the  editor which appeared in last week's Coast  News from Alderman Bill Edney on the  subject of the access road from iheGibsons  highway by-pass.  Anyone who is taking any kind of  intcrcsl in the matter whatsoever will know  that the location of the access road has  been the occasion of heated debate at the  Gibsons Village Council. Edney marshalled and presented his facts in a rational and  a decern manner, stressing that his  disagreement on the issue did not lessen his  personal regard for council members who  did not share his views.  Meanwhile, elsewhere on Ihe Sunshine  Coast Alderman Charles Lee slill finds il  necessary to take out paid advertisements  castigating and deriding those members of  the regional board with whom he  disagrees. He's still coining insulting  terminology e.g. The Gibsons Gang of  Four for those members of the regional  board who happen to be south and east of  Area C. It's all so tiresomely familiar and  unnecessary.  Thank you. Mr. Edney. Your civilized  approach to contentious matters comes as  a welcome breath of fresh air in the often  turbulent atmosphere of our local affairs.  Little to cheer about  I here is something infinitely pathetic  abmil the rapturous greeting bestowed on  President Ronald Reagan's economic  pronouncements by the Conservative  Party during Reagan's recent Ottawa visit.  As Reagan slashes services to people and  boosts the money for guns till it  approaches one-third of his total budget, it  is hard lo imagine any thinking person  applauding. But the rhetoric of the cold  war and of budget cuts is enough to send  our Conservatives into frenzies of delight.  How unspeakably sad.   .  Meanwhile in El Salvador people are  being slaughtered in the streets and the  Americans send more arms. The ambassador says the warehouses in thai country arc  jammed with armaments and Reagan's  response is to fire him. It is a never-never  land of nineteenth century gunboat  diplomacy that we are moving into in the  wake of our gianl neighbour and from here  there seems precious little to cheer about.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Elphinstone High School students  objected to the school board's decision to allow street shoes at the  homecoming dance on the new  gymnasium floor. A poll was taken in a  last ditch effort to change the trustee's  mind that indicated the majority of the  students opposed.  SCRD has unanimously rejected a  suggestion that it consider leasing the  government wharves at Madeira Park  and Whiskey Slough as the board felt  Ihe upkeep fees were unrealistic.  TEN YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council explained that they  were only asking the Henry Road  residents if they were interested in  incorporating, and if it is the will of the  people not to come in then the matter  would be dropped.  Honourable Isabel Dawson has  expressed her pleasure that approval  has been given for the go-ahead on  construction of the Langdale-Gibsons  cut-off.

Increased dumping of garbage  along highways and in the bush has  forced health officials to issue a  warning against such practices.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows >^  George Matthews  ?|  In my experience when a  man is reduced to hurling  epithets at those he disagrees  with it is usually because he  feels himself on uncertain  grounds and must take refuge  in bluster.  When school board chairman Don Douglas charges the  Coast News with 'yellow journalism' and says we are engaged in 'a voracious pursuit'of  the sensational' he is indulgJH|t  in indignant bluster. i  A close reading of Mr.  Douglas' letter on Page Three  will reveal thai he has singled  out two inaccuracies which the  paper has already acknowledged and corrected. As his  letter pertains to columnist  Maryanne West he chooses lo  ignore her point that had the  School Board not been indulging its customary passion  for secrecy she would have  known and would have correctly reported the issue in  question.  In Ihe matter of the educational 'retreat' at the International Plaza Hotel wc were in  error concerning the Superintendent staying an extra two  days before going off to Maple  Ridge but the retreat itself did  take place and did take place at  a time when the school board  had been unable to find $5,000  to keep the Pender Harbour  pool in operation. The point of  the editorial was not to pursue  'sensationalism'but to question  the priorities of a school board  which would give its blessing to  such expenditure and withhold  it lor a community swimming  pool.  If the chairman of the school  board and the superintendent  of schools are convinced that it  is of high educational importance that the district  principals should meet in  enclave to read 'leadership'  papers to each other why  couldn't il be done locally.  Surely there are facilities for  meeting available right here on  the Sunshine Coast which  would also allow the participants to sleep at home, or is  there something of intrinsic  educational value about sleeping in holel rooms that I am  overlooking'.'  Despite Douglas' indignation a 'retreat' al Ihe International Plaza Holel has  overtones of highrolling which  sit ill with the school board's  reluctance to aid the I'ender  Aquatic Society. The Pender  pool was important to school  children from Egmont to  Halfmoon Bay and more than  once did I hear about older  people under doctor's orders to  swim regularly for arthritic  conditions. It was in short an  important community asset  and deserved support.  This week Ihe school board  has been bailed out by the  Regional Board to the tune of  $100,000 extra so that the  children of Roberts Creek can  have a gymnasium. Where  would the school board have  been if the Regional Board had  declined to participate lest  other areas of the Sunshine  Coast protest Roberts Creek's  favoured status? How paltry,  then, does the' school boafd's  refusal to support the Pender  pool on such grounds appear?  Further, when the principal  spokesman opposing the aid is  the trustee from Bowen Island  who is cosily accepting favoured treatment in the matter  of the teaching of French in  Bowen Island Elementary  School at one and the same  time are we to refrain from  question?  "Give it to us,"Trustee Brian  Hodgins urged the newspaper  during his speech in defence of  the school superintendent. It is  advice one would be reluctant  to take. The school trustees, in  common with other locally  elected representatives, put in  long hours for little remuneration. It is at best a thankless job  which must be done and despite  the school board's allegations  of sensationalism I am proud of  the record of this paper in  playing a generally supportive  and constructive role in local  affairs.  Nonetheless I am prepared  to accept Hodgins' invitation.  The self-same trustee has  himself managed a fair show of  indignation at the charge that  this school board is in danger of  being rubber stamps but at the  school board meeting on  Thursday. March 5.1 watched  Hodgins add his vote without  demur to the retroactive approval of the go-ahead to begin  construction of the Davis Bay  school addition already given  the contractor by Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills. I watched  in fascination as a trustee said  "I want to make that motion  however it should be worded"  and watched the superintendent of schools smoothly and  with a skill born of much  practice provide the required  wording for the motion.  The word we hear is that the  superintendent of schools now  wants to move all the principals  in the school district around  and it is likely that the trustees  will allow this to happen.  Watching them at work reminds me of the mesmerized  crowd in front of a carnival  huckster. One of these days the  wagon's going to roll out of  town and the mesmerized are  going to come to and realize  they've been buying snake oil.  The school trustees are in an  unenviable position. The provincial government retains  rigid   centralized  control  of  education but, is smoothly  transferring more and more of  the costs to the local school  board at a time when costs and  assessments are skyrocketing.  Where is the trustee that is  asking meaningful questions  about the taxation formula,  however? When was the last  time the school trustees invited  an outside speaker to address  them on matters educational?  In West Sechelt we have an  acknowledged educational leader in Frances Fleming who  travels widely in the province  addressing interested groups  on matters educational. Why  doesn't our school board avail  itself of her proven wisdom?  At the present time there is a  danger of the school board  being seen as a comfortable  club under the spell of its  bureaucrats and the chairman  of the board, the only elected  representative on the all-  important Management Committee, must shoulder much of  the blame for this. Like it or  not, Mr. Douglas, school costs  are skyrocketing and the local  taxpayer is going to continue to  notice the difference and we  should be getting more from  our school board than an old  boy fellowship of mutal advantage with its administrators.  Please turn to Page  3  While the year is only  three months old, we have  seen already the strength of  labour unions in B.C. in  unifying workers in their  struggles for wage increases  and against arbitrary treatment by management. As the  year goes on, even more  labour disputes are promised.  The I.W.A. in particular  seems likely to bargain hard  for a better deal. In the midst  of these larger disputes  between big labour and big  management, one particularly  bitter dispute has gone unnoticed by both press and  public. This has been the  drawn out and acrimonious  negotiations between local one  of the Matthews children  union and their mother over  allowances and working conditions.  Despite a 50% increase in  allowances over the past year,  local one has begun job  action in support of a further  25% increase over the next  12 months on a one year  contract. Further, the girls  are rankling against close  supervision of dishwashing  and bed making and are  hinting at a cost of living  clause and bonuses.  Management on the other  hand has made some demands  of its own: rooms to be cleaned  up once a day instead of once a  Printing Press No. 17  my machine  is a he;  everyone else  has a woman-machine; Ihey say  "there, i've got her  going now" or "this sure is  a whore of a machine", but my machine  is a man.  i know because  he's so mean to me���  he won't turn out words  but just sits there  & turns black  & sticky  so i have to  wash him off;  my machine is a man,  I know, even though  he's Ihe first machine  i've ever met  because he's always  buggering things up:  i think I'll call him  Adolph or Idi.  Gwen Hauser  from Ihe book "Going for Coffee"  published by Harbour Publishing  week, table set promptly at  5:30, table cleared immediately after dinner and no TV  until the homework is done.  Reacting against this hard  line from management, local  one made a further demand to  renegotiate bed times on  school nights.  There was a time when the  three members of local one  bargained independently, but  when they saw the big settle  ments other children were  getting for even less work;  they decided to organize and  go for increases across the  board. At the local's first  convention there were of  course a number of internal,  conflicts. The issue of wage  parity was the most difficult  to solve. This had been a'.  long-standing issue and management had used this  natural conflict to split the,  workers and keep them from  organizing. The oldest felt  that a 50 cent differential was  fair and that a contract should  be negotiated across the  board with that differential  maintained. The second oldest  balked at this suggestion,  pointing out that the youngest  should receive substantially  less. She suggested a 25 cent  differential for each year of  age, which would give her a  75 cent advantage over the  youngest. The youngest, sensing the inequitability of such  a settlement, cried, pouted,  pulled hair, pinched and,  generally had a tantrum.  Whether she had learned this,  tactic by observing the negotiations of adults is unknown  but the tactic succeeded and  the meeting broke up after a  rousing chorus of "Solidarity,  for Ever" and shouts of  "We're ready to die for the  trade unionists". ;-  The next day when local one'  sat down at the bargaining  table with management and  presented its package, they:  were met with stiff opposition.  Management presented its.  arguments: the high cost of  children's clothing, the price  of groceries, the general  decline in the economy and'  the disastrous profit picturer.

Webster's Dictionary states that  "Yellow Journalism" is "ordinary news sensationally  distorted". Many misunderstandings, injured feelings  and aborted plans are the  result of such irresponsible  reporting. It has been brought  to my attention that the Coast  News has frequently lapsed  into the gross distortion  of facts, through obviously  sloppy reporting practices  if not maliciousness. Two  recent examples follow:  ���Coast News editorial -  March 10, 1981 -  ."An informant made an  assumption. The attempt to  corroborate that assumption  wits stymied by conflict of  newspaper deadline and hotel  office hours. At that point it  was decided to go with it  because   it   was   "probably  true" and you were dealing  with the professional reputation of a group of dedicated  people! Your bias is showing!

Glad to notice you draw  attention to local education  expenses in a recent Musings  and editorial 17th of February.  Trust you will continue to put  a spotlight on this aspect.  I see Frances Fleming in the  10th of February issue hits in a  general way the same topic -  A System Grown Top Heavy.  Board members, if they ever  stop to consider, must feel  pretty well flattened by the  steam-roller system. But only  in S.D.46 could such a foo-faw  as the Pender Harbour swim  pool ever reach such gigantic  proportions in the ridiculous.  Do the. paid officials ever feel  the responsibility to point out  to the board that there are  loose ends, vague decisions,  uncertain intentions appearing in the minutes that need  preventive action in time  to save face?  We can be grateful for the  Rocky Mountain letters - great  self-made news for the paper.  Very refreshing reading in  George Matthews and in a  single Vern Giesbrecht column.  Regards,  George Cooper  Thoughtless drivers dangerous  Editor:  . The spring weather is here  and once again our young  ehi/ens are taking their horses  out for a ride on Ihe week-ends.  . Last spring and summer wc  had several near accidents with  our horses, all due to careless  iHid inconsiderate drivers.  We've seen drivers speed up,  swerve at us and blare their  horns as we ride down the side  of the road. On Sunday March  Sth, my daughter walked her  hprse to the corner of Cham-  berlin and Reed roads-a quiet  corner. As my daughter had  one foot in the stirrup, a black  I'ransam raced up Ihe hill and  seeing her. gave a long blast on  the horn. The horse bolted,  dragging my daughter and then  raced a mile and a half home,  riderless, reins dragging crossing North Road to get to our  barn.  It is nice to think we live in a  rural area with many small  farms having livestock of  different   kinds.   We  ask  all  drivers when seeing horses and  riders on the sides of our roads,  to slow down and refrain from  using their horns.  Yours sincerely  Linda Reeve  H.S. According to the RCMP,  it is possible to lay a charge  against such inconsiderate  divers.  Unforgivable  Editor:  Mr. White's attack on Mrs.  Peters' column is completely  unforgivable. He is accusing  Mrs. Peters of wishing a  polluted harbour on everyone  in order to have her own nest  feathered.  Could it be that perhaps  Mrs. Peters has looked into  the reports a little deeper, or  has obtained more information  from many other sources than  Mr. White's narrow-mindedness would permit?  As far as feathering one's  own nest, Mr. White might  well look at an absolute  eyesore his own contracting  firm gave the Harbour. Mr.  White remember - some  people grow small trying to be  big.  Yours,  Karen Adamson,  Madeira Park.  Astonished  Editor:  I was truly astonished last  week by the number of gratuitous insults Robi Peters was  able to get off while saying she  was too delicate to reply to my  letter. It was too amusing to be  offensive, and I find the regard  I have always had for Robi as a  person interested in community issues still pretty much  intact. But she must realize that  if she is going to advance  controversial positions in the  paper, and especially if she is  going to use dishonest methods  in doing so, she can expect to  get tripped up for it.  Yours truly,  Howard White  Wildlife Club seeks to aid young  Editor:  We seem to have been  hearing a lot about what a  hard time the teenagers  are having finding something  to do these days.  For some years the Gibsons  Slings & Arrows (Cont'd.)  the workers were interrupted  by management pounding on  the door demanding entry to  the facility; in an instant  labour seized upon their first  opportunity for radical action.  'We'll come out, if you  promise to bargain in good  fjtith."  ��� Management retaliated. "If  you don't open this door this  instant you won't be able to sit  down for a week."  Seeing management's point  of view in this case, the  workers opened the door and  returned to the bargaining  lablc. Local one presented  its case again and suggested a  24 hour "cooling off" period,  after which time both management and labour would present suggestions for a third  party arbitrator. Management  agreed, but told the workers  that in order to speed negotiations, they would be  locked out of the TV room and  the cookie jar until a settlement was reached. Shocked by  the heavy handed attitude of  management, the workers  recaucussed and quickly came  to the decision to call a wildcat  strike and refuse to wash  dishes, go to the store or make  their beds until management  came to its senses.  After being sent to bed  without their dinner, the  workers moderated their demands somewhat and at the  next meeting with management presented a revised  package which included a  promise to work towards  increased productivity in return for the requested wage  settlement. Management, too,  had made some concessions  and when the meeting was  over a new one year contract  had been signed. When the  meeting broke up, the workers  retired to their room to  celebrate and extol the virtues  of trade unionism while  management picked up its  picket sign and drove out to  join her brothers and sisters  on strike down at work.  Wildlife Club has been running a shooting programme  for youngsters up to the age  of 14 but when they reach this  magical age we lose touch  with them and with the odd  exception we never see them  again.  The Club decided to try and  change this situation and encourage the young people to  take part in other activities  such as fishing, hiking,  camping and canoeing and to  this end have set aside an  evening to find out just what  the young folks themselves  would like to do and this  means boys and girls alike.  There will be a bit of a slide  show to illustrate what kind of  activities we are talking about  and to show what kids can  do when they really set their  minds to it, but the main  idea of the evening is to let  the youngsters do the talking  and tell us what they think  about all this and if their  thoughts are positive, what  they would like to do about it.  You don't have to be a  present or past member of  the  Wildlife   Club.  The meeting will take place  on Wednesday, March 18  at 7:30 at the Gibsons Wildlife  Club on Highway 101 opposite  the cemetery. We look forward to your company.

It  seems to brood eternally over  the small village of Sully's  Cove, where most of the crew  either boards or lives. Whatever you choose to call that  baleful chunk of rock, you  would never call it easy logging  country.

Bart Clapperton, the hook-  tender is by all odds, the most  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  enormous man I have ever  worked the hills with. He must  stand over six foot six and is  proportioned accordingly - a  veritable giant. The first morning he comes to work, we can  barely believe it. We are  already sitting in the back of  the battered panel truck that  serves as a crummy. The door  opens, a great hand appears  and sets down the biggest pair  of caulk-boots any of us has  ever seen. Bart himself follows,  grunting his outsize bulk into  the crew-truck. Even seated, his  head scrapes the low roof.  "Mornin-, fellers," he says  cordially.  Despite his intimidating  bulk, Bart proves an easygoing  man with a droll sense of  humour. This is a useful trait  on the sort of ground we arc  working for much of it is no  laughing matter. Steep, broken  and gully-slashed, it tips and  tumbles on every side like a  crazy obstacle-course. A lot of  the timber is blowdown,  knocked flat by Typhoon  Frieda,  a  few  years earlier.  <9>  .V?

Huge, uptorn roots strew the  landscape, providing additional barriers to worry the logs  around.  The resultant hang-ups are  frequent and thorny but Bart  copes with them philosophically. "That's what they're paying  me for, boys," he reasons with a  shrug.  In addition to his great size,  Bart Clapperton is probably  the best-educated man I will  ever run across in the woods.  He actually has a University  Degree in Forestry and a  passion for reading that matches my own. We often discuss  books, authors and even poetry  between turns, to the perplex-  ment of our two young choker-  men who are both early dropouts and no more literate than  they should be. We work and  talk our way across that steep,  log-strewn shambles of a claim  in Goatfoot Mountain's shadow and the yarding goes  about as well as can be  expected.  The dichotomy of bookish  talk against the violent background music of a logging show  is about par for the course, this  strange year. It begins with a  literal psychic bang, a few  months before. On a snowbound morning in early January, 1 sit apprehensively in the  bright living room of a lay-  psychiatrist friend called Thad  Pendergast. His wife and  several other informed people  are also present.  Thad and 1 have become  friends through a mutual  interest in poetry. He is a  handsome, free-spirited man of  middle years with a buoyant  enthusiasm for life. Thad has  been involved for sometime  with a group called Life  Enhancement. It consists of  several psychiatrists who are  conducting experiments in  psychedelic drugs. (Still quite  legal at this point.) Thad has  convinced me that such a "trip"  might do wonders for my  various hangups and temper  my drinking habits.  The drug in my case is not  LSD but organic mescaline,  about 350 micrograms worth  and fresh from the Sandoz  Laboratories. It comes in a  huge capsule, almost peanut-  sized, and takes several swallows of water before I can  choke it down. 1 have been told  to expect nothing for at least  half-an-hour and wait in growing scepticism as forty-five  minutes ticks away. Suddenly,  it begins.  The entrance-phase is deceptively mild. Brilliant abstract  imagery begins to ripple  through my mind like sentient  painting. The shapes and  colours are bizarre but not  unpleasing. I follow their  ceaseless fluctuations with  interest, feeling quite in control. There doesn't seem much  to this.  Abruptly, the full force of the  mescaline hits and pitches tne  right over the edge of reality. I  seem to shoot right off the  plane of the rational elliptic in  some hitherto-unsuspected  direction. Like a ship with its  anchor-chain snapped, my  mind heaves and bucks  through high seas of utter  disorientation. Dimly, 1 hear  Thad's voice urging me to let  go; to ride with it but he seems  like a strange being from some  alien dimension. It is like no  sensation I have remotely  imagined before and I am  frankly terrified.  Despite the extremity of the  mental distortions, I am still  vaguely aware of my body.  After a timeless time, I feel an  overwhelming need to relieve  myself and Thad guides me  stumbling, to the bathroom.  The performance of this familiar function disorients me for a  second. Then I glance in the  mirror. The bewildered face  that stares back at me is not my  own but that of a primitive  Indian. I whirl into a dislocated  fantasy.  In the shoes of my skin  the Indian within  plods  through   mexicos  oj  mind-  muddle   past   pyranids   of  plumed-snake lime  locked  in a long abode minute  Shorn of all  but primordial wisdom  the strong brown face  wearing my pale one like a  mask peers with clear vision  across the pathless desert  of opaque reality  Peers  almost sees  then abruptly retreats  imploding back  to the black bin  of racial memory  leaving merely  a blind husk  alone  on infinite sands  About two hours of baffling  oddness, I break through to a  peak-phase of absolute clarity,  extreme well-being and seeming oneness with the universe.

At the Twilight  To the delight of fans of  the movie barroom brawl,  champion bare-knuckle fighter  Philo Beddoe (Clint Eastwood)  is back in action in Any Which  Way You Can at the Twilight  Theatre for a week from  Wednesday, March 18 to  Tuesday, March 24.  Any Which Way Yon Can is  a more carefully crafted and  unabashed comedy than its  predecessor Any Which Way  But Loose. This episode  finds Philo and his faithful  orangutan in semi-retirement from the fight game,  living at Ma Boggs' (Ruth  Gordon) San Fernando shack  and stripping cars for a  living.  The plot thickens when  kingpin James Beekman (Harry Guardino) offers Philo  $25,000 to fight the feared  Jack Wilson (played by  William Smith). Philo and  Wilson, unfortunately for fight  fans,  have become drinking  buddies and Beekman is  forced to kidnap Philo's lost  love, country singer Lynn  Halsey-Taylor (Sondra Locke)  and hold her at the Jackson  Hole fight site until the boys  put up their dukes.  Instead, the two fighters  join forces to rescue the girl,  to the dismay of several  thousand gamblers and fight  fans who have converged on  the town. The fans get their  money's worth in the end  though, as the two decide  to settle the issue once and for  all in movie macho tradition.  The result is a fight to end all  fights, spilling out into the  streets in fine Western style.  Between the bloody noses  and the wily antics of good  old Clyde the orangutan  Any Which Way You Can  moves briskly to a happy  ending that should have  audiences hooting and howling for more.  Family Film series  On March 18, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council presents  The Marriage of Maria Braun,  Fassbinder's most popular  film to date. Through Maria's  struggles to rebuild her life  following the disappearance of  her wartime husband, Fass-  binder tells the story of  Germany after World War II.  Maria is played by Hanna  Schygulla, who has been  described by Lawrence  O'Toole: "Schygulla gives one  of the greatest performances  ever to reach the screen -  endlessly variable, sensual,  hypnotic. There are so many  layers to the personality that  by the time they're all stripped off you feel you have  known this woman all your  life".  The NFB short, She's a  Railroader   by   Vancouverite  Barbara Trantor will also be  shown. The film begins at  8 p.m. Admission is S2.50,  seniors and  students  $1.25.

Circulation, the  number of books that are  taken out in a year, is the  figure on which libraries are  judged and the Gibsons  Public Library has one of the  better circulation averages  in the province for the population it serves.  With 16,658 books signed  out last year, it's safe to assume that many of the library's over 7,000 books  barely had a chance to cool  off on the shelves before  being picked up by another oi  the 520-odd paid subscribers.  (Last year's figures). The  figures are borne out by a visit  tp the library on a Saturday  afternoon of your choice. I  nipped in and out a couple oi  times last Saturday afternoon  and found that the lineup  at the counter changes, but it  never seems to get any  Shorter. There is obviously  plenty of work for the staff  of 24 volunteers.  The library has always been  fortunate to be served by a  very dedicated group of  volunteers. Alderman Diane  Strom, chairman of the Library Committee for the present municipal council, points  Out that three directors with  long records of service on the  library board, Meg Meredith,  Jean Mainil and Lucy Fletcher  actually had to resign from the  board this year because they  have served too long, according to the regulations of the  Province's Library Services  Department.  Plans are currently in the  works to move the library into  the present Gibsons Public  rfealth Building after the  Public Health Unit moves into  the bottom floor of the new  municipal office building.  According to Alderman Strom,  the move is definite, but the  time of the move has yet to  be established. When the  move is made, a library  consultant will be brought  up from Vancouver to suggest  layout modifications to make  the building suitable for the  library's purposes.  I Standing in the library now,  it's hard to imagine that all  the work done here is done by  volunteers; the library has no  full time paid librarian. It's  C Variety  Jfoot)*  886X936  Try  Nature's  Way  &  G abler  Herbal Combinations  for all that ails youl  Gibsons  even harder to imagine that  all of this grew out of a handful of peanuts. (Well, not  quite, but the sale of boxes of  peanuts door-to-door was one  of the ways the Kiwanis  Club of Gibsons raised money  to   build   the   old   library.  That, and a lot of other  interesting information on  how the library came into  being, 1 cribbed from articles  by Jules Mainil, chairman of  the old library's building  committee in the early 1950's.  The articles appeared in the  May 3 and May 10 issues of  the Coast News of 1972, to  coincide with the opening of  the new library in the municipal office complex on South  Fletcher.  What emerges from those  articles is a sense of the  dedication and co-operation  that emerged at every level,  from municipal government,  service groups and individuals, where the library is  concerned, whatever its location. Gibsons has had a  library for almost seventy  years. The first library of  record was located in the old  L.S. Jackson store on Pratt  Road from 1912 to 1915. That  first library was completely  dependent on the Provincial  Travelling Library for its  books and was maintained by  volunteers from the Farmers'  Institute and the Womens'  Institute.  Later, the growing library  found other homes and caretakers.  For a time it resided in the  home of Mrs. Nestman, a  village councillor who provided space and shelter for  the library's 50-75 donated  volumes and books provided  by the Provincial Library  Commission. With the formation of the first Library  Association in 1952, the  library found a foster father in  Dick McKibbin who offered  space   in   his  small   office.  The first meeting of the  Association was held on  March 30, 1953 and elected  Les Peterson as its first  president. That Association,  with help from the Kiwanis  club, local donors of money  and labour and a donation of  a site from the municip.il  council, made possible the  construction of the first library  building where the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum now  stands. The list of people  who contributed time and  material to the construction  of that library would fill far  more space than this column  allows, but it's obvious that  the same spirit still moves  members of this community.  As the circulation figures  prove, the library remains a  quiet cornerstone of the  intellectual life of the community. It's open four days of  the week; Tuesday 2-4 p.m.,  Wednesday 2-4 p.m., Thursday 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. and  Saturday 2-4 p.m. At $2 a year  for a family membership,  still a bargain.  All for now.

Book Look  by Murrie Redman   Beyond the Crimson Morning by George Ryg��, Doublediy 1979,  $11.50  Ryga is one of my favourite Canadian authors. I have always  loved his forthright assessment of character, his honest language  and beauty of his images. In Beyond the Crimson Morning he  shares himself in these "reflections from a journey through  Contemporary China". Now I love him, too, as a warm giving  individual who sees good in all men.  Ryga had been asked by a friend to guide a group of people on a  tour of China. II you have ever toured in a party, you find the same  stereotypes on every trip - this one is no exception. There is the  film freak who sees whole continents through the lens of an  expensive camera. There are the two little old ladies who cluck  and coo and have a darn good time. There is the stiff necked old  maid and the raunchy old guy who disapprove of each other.  There is the not so stiff necked young gal who wants to share her  charms with any taker. There is the nice shy single chap who  eventually teams up with the fast gal. and then there is the note-  taker. Ryga is the latter.  George Ryga's travelogue is most unusual. It presents a picture  of modern China that combines all at once, legend, customs,  geography, history, art and economics. The whole impressionistic  description is interspersed with recollections of his own life and  works as well as anecdotes about his fellow travellers.  The diary is the most readable summary of a country that I have  yet encountered. Perhaps il is the author's special insight into the  common Chinese person and his way of life. Perhaps it is the blend  of fact and fantasy that holds one spellbound to the end. Readers  will feel a rare closeness to the country that has been a mystery for  so long.  It is a personal experience which Ryga softly recounts. One of  his first observations is the Peking rush hour:  "Somewhere blocks away, a traffic light changed. Like a living  organism, the bicycle mass on the side of the street nearest us  began slowing and then came to a stop. The traffic signal changed  again, and the vanguard of cyclists to the east, nearest the light,  began moving again."

Wodehouse  FOOD  lor  THOUBHT  - by Yoshi Tanaka  TORI  One of the most typical, and ubiquitous soyabean  foods consumed in Japan isTofu, a bean curd dish that  comes in block forms. It is white and has the  consistency of a custard or a pudding.  Tofu originated in China and was introduced to Japan  some 12 centuries ago. It remains one of the most  essential and widely used items in traditional Japanese  cuisine.  Tofu can be eaten cold, boiled in water, added to soup,  fried, baked or even deep-frozen���its culinary uses are  almost unlimited.  Tofu production is simple: soyabeans are macerated in  water, mashed and boiled. The mash is then strained  for its liquid content, which is mixed with bittern-  liquid remaining after table salt is crystalized from sea  water���or more recently calcium sulphate. This  process coagulates the protein element, which is  removed and gently strained in boxes. The resulting  "cakes" are tofu, almost pure protein and exceptionally  nutritious.  Simple tofu dishes are very common in homes and  restaurants, and some big city restaurants even  specialize, serving tofu exclusively but in so many  different forms that it appears as if a multi-course  dinner is being served.  An estimated 32,000 small producers of tofu are  operating in Japan, along with several giant  manufacturers which distribute tofu internationally.  NEW!

March  12th. The main topic of discussion was the proposal  by Ihe parents to get busy and  build a play park area at the  school. The Board gave permission for this project to go  ahead and it is hoped that  with a lot of help from friends  and neighbours the park  could become a reality in  time for the spring breakup.  The design will be one which,  in the event of the school  ever being relocated, could  very easily be moved. The  group at the meeting was most  enthusiastic and willing to go  ahead, but they will need  some help in collecting some  of the necessary materials.  There are no financial grants  for this type of project, so the  generosity of some of our local  sawmill and construction outfits would be a great help in  this project.  Some of the materials  required are for instance  poles measuring six to eight  feet long and about eight  inches in diameter, stump  ends two to four feet high,  roughcut two-by-sixes, bolts,  gravel and, in particular,  any old truck tyres. There  must be loads of old truck  ~*rmr  lyres lying around the yards  in the area, which you may be  quite happy to donate to such  a good cause. Anyone willing  to help out with materials  or help are asked to phone  either Heidi Goodman at  885-2615 or Ken Blace at  885-%52.  Transplant for your Friends.  Now that most of us are  busy getting some gardening  done it is a good time to' do  some transplanting of anything that you are thinning  out or taking cuttings from.  They will all be needed for  the Welcome Beach Community plant and bake sale  which will be at the hall on  April 18th. Some things  that you may consider are not  worth keeping may be just  what some of our new neighbours are looking for to help  start their garden.  Likewise, if you have some  house plants you can split  up and place in a little container; they will be most  welcome. Everyone who is a  member of the Association  will also be asked to do some  baking for this date. Further  hall events for this month  will be the St. Patrick's Day  drop-in dance on Saturday,  March 21st and a slide show  presented by Al and Nancy  Lawson on Thursday, March  26th. No dinner at this one -  tea and coffee will be served  and it will be a fun night for  all. Anyone is welcome to  come and the admission  is  only two dollars. If you have  any special favourite tapes for  dancing you could bring them  along.  Recreation Officers:  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Society held its  annual general meeting on  March 9th and elected the  following officers for the  coming year. Chairman is  Geri-Lou Wickwire, Vice  Chairman Heidi Goodman,  Secretary Diana Grumer and  Treasurer is Lilian Shaw.  Other members on the Board  are David Short, Gail Blace,  Kay Dombroski, Bob Cocking  and Susan Bolivar.  In Hospital.

"Wo-  manskill School" is the name  given to a session which will  take place at Elphinstone  woodwork shop on Saturday,  March 21st from 10 a.m. till  1 p.m. Judy Gates will teach  you how to use tools and how  to plan your woodwork, projects etc. For registration you  can call 885-5721. Another  session which should be a  lot of fun is the Belly Dance  workshop at the Elphinstone  lunch room on Sunday March  29th from non till 4 p.m.  A well-known belly dancer  from Vancouver by the name  of Doria will be demonstrating  the dance and showing you  how.  Pre-registration is essential  for this one and the deadline  will be March 24th so make  sure that you call 885-3512.  Don't miss this one.

When Principal  Barry Boulton was asked how  he felt it was going, he replied  "A good start school wide".  He further explained that one  of the reasons for this was the  semester system itself. "It  allows us to work out problems in the first semester  and then go smoothly into the  second.  Grads are already looking  forward to the end of the  school year. During a recent  grad meeting it was decided  that year end event should  either be a visit to a dude  ranch, or, if this were not  available, to go to a camp.  The possibility of booking a  motel for a dinner-dance  was also looked at.  The grad car raffle wilr" be  held on March 28th and  coinciding with the raffle  will be a variety show for  ticket holders and the public.  It will be held in Elphie - so be  there!  The February 26th dance  featuring 'Steelback' was a  great success according to  student council president Reg  Morel.  The  next big  event  will be a carnival; watch this  space for details.  Junior and Senior Boys  Basketball Teams played in  tournaments on the weekend  of February 27th. Teams from  Vancouver came to Gibsons to  participate in the Junior  Tournament. The Seniors travelled to Vancouver to play in  pre-Howe Sound final tournament.  The Elphinstone Senior  Concert Band, under the  direction of Mr. Bill Rayment  is planning a major trip to  Barrie, Ontario, between April  10th and 20th.

President Roy Milliner proposed at the general meeting  last week that it be announced  that the Legion's schedule of  entertainment is supposed to  appeal to all ages. The live  music is intended to draw  people in, not drive them  away.  And they're canvassing  members to see what they  want out of their membership.

We started off with 15  minutes of warmup-stretching  to limber the muscles (is that  a shock to the old bod at  9:30 in the morning), then  jogging. That part is easy,  right? I jog every day, but  not up Hall Road, pant, gasp.  Then comes the fun part.  Forty-five minutes of constant  (and I do mean constant)  movement to music ranging  from disco to the Nutcracker  Suite. It was great. You can't  help but feel like dancing  and lithe, smiling Rieta makes  it look easy as she leads you  through your paces. And  there's something inspiring  about the stamp of fifty feet  in unison to "Never give up,  never give up."  It got increasingly difficult  to remember to smile, however, as my legs turned to  rubber and I had to concentrate on just getting my  left leg to touch my right  elbow. At least I wasn't the  first to stumble off clutching  a "stitch" in my side but by  the time we got down for the  routine on the floor my legs  absolutely rebelled against the  lead weights (previously called running shoes) attached to  them.  But then, mercifully, it was  all over and I felt just great!  There's a real feeling of  exhilaration - you can either  go out and conquer the world  or just rest on your sense of  accomplishment for the day.  For those unable to attend  the morning classes at the  Hall, a noon hour class will  be starting soon in Secheit and  hopefully a mixed evening  class will be organized either  in the summer or next fall.  I heartily recommend it,  even if my muscles an  screaming  as   I  write  this.  St. Patrick's tea  by Jon Van Arsdell  Well, this is Sunday and  it's raining for the first  time since I can't remember  when. The gods have smiled  on us this winter, much, I am  sure to the dismay of the  people who sell us fuel oil  for heating. They will probably make up for it next year.  Movie night in Egmont  was enjoyed by most everyone, as usual. The Last Waltz  was a documentary with The  Band, probably the best  Canadian rock and roll group  ever put together. It was great  to see them playing on stage  with such notables as Bob  Dylan, Emmy Lou Harris,  Muddy Waters, Van Morrison  and many others. For those  who've never seen a live rock  concert or any of these performers, it was a boon because  you could see them so much  better than in a concert hall.  Dave and Sue thought our  sound system could stand  some improvement and there  was little argument. All in  all, though, it come off  pretty good.  We are having a 'tea' on  St. Patrick's Day with door  prizes and refreshments,  Come to the hall at 2:00 p.m.  on  the  17th and  load  up.

Ratification of the agreement is scheduled for this week.  School expansion discussed  If you live in or near one of  the larger communities in the  School District your child will  attend the nearby elementary  school with little chance of  being uprooted unless the  family moves. In Halfmoon  Bay, however, parents have  no such guarantee and the one  room school was filled to  capacity to meet the School  Trustees and seek assurance  from them and Superintendent Denley that their  concerns for their children will  be met.  Questions revolved around  four issues:- which school  their children would attend  for the Intermediate grades  4-7 and that they should have  some promise of continuity,  not become victims of changing demographics; how the  problems of staffing and  division of classes would be  handled for the next school  year; the Board's plans for the  expansion of the school when  numbers warrant it; and that  the Pender Harbour pool  should be re-opened as soon  as possible so their children  could resume swimming lessons.  Obviously, Halfmoon Bay  is in touch with its community.  The parents presented the  Board with detailed plans for  an adventure playground to  replace the present swings.  The construction is to be done  by the parents from donated  materials and constructed so  that it can be dismantled and  rebuilt on another site if the  Board decides to build a new  school in the future.  "The school looks as if no-  one loved it," said one parent,  "and we mean to change  that." The children themselves have already prepared  flowerbeds for planting.  Trustee Al Lloyd sparked  discussion at the School Board  meeting exploring ways in  which the Board could avoid  crises similar to the current  problems in Pender Harbour.  The Music Makers - E.V.

Obviously concerned by the  manner in which the issue had  been handled and looking for a  better way, Trustee Lloyd put  forward an amendment designed to allow the Board to  by-pass protocol when a  situation was deemed to  warrant such urgency. In  general, trustees felt that  current policy already allows  for such emergency procedures and that they were  not in favour of any changes  which would allow decisions to  be made in the heat of e-  motional exchange at a board  meeting.  Secretary-Treasurer Mills  felt that with hindsight the  Pender Harbour issue might  not have reached the present  stand-off if he had immediately got in touch with the  regional board and initiated  joint discussions and action.  Trustee Hodgins suggested  that both boards should get  together for a workshop or  workshops to explore with  professional help a more  co-operative and workable  approach to joint-use recreational projects, before the  concept which has such poten<  tial to provide and operate  facilities for community use is  written off as unworkable.  Decision on the proposed  amendment was tabled until  'the next meeting.

VON 3A0 Coast News, March 17, 1981  Reflections  Homefront learning  by Vern Giesbret'ht  Most Monday nights find me  sitting at Tom Yang's kitchen  table, telling him not to "bite  off more than he can chew" or  asking him if he's "heard  anything through the grapevine" recently.  Tom and his wile seem to  enjoy learning these and other  idioms, so pari of each English  lesson for the past month has  featured common figurative  expressions that native English  speakers use so often.  Tom assured me thai the  next time the zerox copier stops  working at his drafting company he'll say it's "on the  blink." He's also thinking ol  how he'll work such expressions as "haven't got a leg to  stand on" and "don't know  which end is up" into his  everyday conversations.  I met the Vangs and their 13-  year-old son Joe in late fall  through the Homefront Learning program sponsored by  Vancouver Community College, King Edward campus.  I his unique program began IV;  vears ago and involves training  do/ens of volunteer tutors and  sending them into Vancouver  homes to instruct residents who  want to learn English or  improve their English skills.  Tom is a quiet man in his 40s  who is considered an "intermediate" student. He was very  shy when 1 first met him but I  had little trouble making  conversation with him. His  wife is more outgoing and  asked if she could be tutored as  well. Since she began thrice-  weekly English classes at a  community centre her command of the language has  improved   considerably;    her  SvA  Al Wagner  Al Wagner  Invites you  to join  Big  Brothers  A service of friendship freely given by  men. to boys without  fathers.

We meet for about two hours  on most Monday evenings,  drinking Chinese tea as we  review the previous week's  work and learn new material.  Both the Yangs are eager to  increase their vocabulary.  Their English-Chinese dictionary is well-thumbed and they  conscientiously copy down my  explanations for unfamiliar  words.  A newspaper story they  enjoyed. "Once-banned Chinese gather for exercise, sideshows in park", added such  words as promenade, ragged,  churning, hefting, malice and  bedlam lo their vocabularies.  Talking about their families  made them thoroughly familiar  with mother-in-law, niece,  grandaughter. sibling and  related terms. A "mapping"  exercise in which they mapped  out their daily activities led to  an interesting monologue by  Tom on a frustrating episode al  work and his thoughts on the  proposed Pier B.C. Project.  At the end of one of the first  lessons I left them a copy of the  December "Reader's Digest"  and suggested they practice  reading one of the articles.  Unfortunately, lorn labored  through the most tedious  selection, an interview with  retired senator Eugene Eoresy  about why Canada needs a  charter of rights. The next week  I quickly switched to a humorous article. "Gaffes, Goofs and  Plain Bad luck." which provoked laughter and allowed me  to teach them what the words  aspiring, swank, would-be and  drudgery meant.

If you have  forgotten, cut them well  back on the thickest stalks to  an outward facing bud at a  45 degree angle. Remove all  skinny, spindly stalks entirely.  The outward pointing bud will  shape your rose into a nice  fan shape. Remove all small  criss-cross branches. Cut 'em  Back. If you are buying new  roses do the same thing as  soon as they are in the ground.  If you are buying Supermarket roses Do Not pick the  rose with the most green  growth. All this means is  that it has been stored in too  warm an atmosphere and  would be in better shape had  it remained outdoors. Pick one  with a nice round smooth graft  and thick stalks and lots of fat  hard red buds. It is the graft  that counts.  Perennials can be bought  now and all the plant shops  are full of them.

Many of them value  'childhood as a very fleeting  and transitory time in their  family life, and they delight in  the curiosity, the independence, the precocity of their  lovely children. The child  who is born today is almost  always a wanted child, planned for and loved, and given  every advantage to progress  and thrive.  In our society, many adults  try to survive with a minimum  of conformity to rules of  conduct and even to the laws  of the land. The farther west  one travels on the North  American continent, the more  free and easy the society. This  phenomenon is readily observable except in the schools,  where maximum conformity is  demanded.  Many children, brought up  in the new mode, are not  prepared to conform. They  Nave been brought up to  Question; no one must question the authority of the  school, They have been  brought up to be alert, sensitive to Iheir environment;  they must concentrate on the  (cachet's words and wishes,  and avoid reacting to any  Ather potential distraction.  They have been encouraged  to be active; they must now  sit quietly for large periods of  time. They have been allowed  to manipulate large toys,  (jrcate environments of boxes,  blankets, odds and ends; now  they must focus in on little bits  af paper.  ! It is no reflection on the  child if the trauma of environmental change causes  him to display some fairly  4nacceptable school behaviors. He may become very  Aggressive; he may be careless and care less; he may  {���cheat" to please the teacher;  e   may  be  downright   dis-  CARS AND TRUCKS  Rental ���Leasing  ���Also-  Domestic & Industrial  Equipment  Sechell next to the  liquor store  Gibsons at Prall &  Hwy  101  Seaside  Rentals  885-2848       886-2848  obedient; he may try to dominate the class; he may become  very fearful; he may fail to  work; he may become sneaky;  he may withdraw; he may give  up on school, and just sit; he  may be labelled "emotionally  disturbed". Even displaying  any or many of the above  symptoms, the child is still a  normal human being, trying  to cope with a puzzling set of  circumstances, being conditioned into a way of life that he  is going to have to put up with  for many, many years.  School rules and school  atmosphere is a "given" in  our society. The school does  not admit to being less than  perfect. Therefore Ihe child  is said to have problems, and  society moves in to change the  child. The brunt of coping with  children's "personality problems" falls on the teacher,  and on the elementary teacher  most of all. In addition to  presenting curricula, the elementary teacher must be a  behavior modifier par excellence. The first step is to  convey to parents the behavioral patterns desired by  the school and to convince  them that these patterns are  necessary for the child's  progress in school.  If any group needs preparation and consultative time  it is the elementary teachers.  They have to explain to  parents the need for behavioral changes. Parents  must take time to explain to  the children at home why  certain actions which they are  accustomed to at home are  not permitted at school. They  must help the teachers condition their children to school.  Even if the parents feel that  many   of   the    "rules"   are  inconsequential or picayune,  they must support the school  and the teacher. There is no  place in the system for the  child rebel. No teacher is  willing to treat disruptive  behavior with compassion  nor will she applaud any  elementary child for nonconformity.  The non-co-operative child  may not be punished by the  strap or physically abused,  but something equally pernicious may occur. Schools  may label him "emotionally  disturbed" or report him as  a child with a "personality  disorder". When this occurs,  the child is no longer "normal", no longer the sole  responsibility of the classroom  teacher. The "experts" will  move in, all trying to help  him conform to the functional  requirements of the institution.  While all these services  appear compassionate, helpful and generous, the burden  of adjustment is placed on the  shoulders of the poor child  and no one looks at the  institution to inquire why  more and more services are  being provided for more and  more children.  Parents should work with  the teachers to try to mould  their child into the conforming  pattern that will spell success  in school, but their interest  should not stop there. They  should be demanding educational reform so that their  children need not be so  changed; so that the qualities  of self-reliance, creativity and  youthful exuberance need not  be extinguished for education  to occur. The teacher is always  right, but the system leaves  much to be desired!  Continuing Education  offers family programs  Mrs. Karin Hoemberg presented the annual report on  Continuing Education to the  Board   of   School   Trustees.  Of particular interest this  year has been the work done  by Joan Cowderoy to provide  programmes for families.  With changes in traditional  styles of family life and the  numbers of new residents  coming to the Sunshine Coast,  there is a need to bring  people of all ages together to  share social, entertainment  and learning experiences.  A modest experimental  family programme of twenty  events covering the period  January to April has been  offered following extensive  research and suggestions from  adults, children, teenagers  and others in the community.  This year Mrs. Hoemberg  has served on the Advisory  Committee set up by the  Ministry of Education and  acted as chairman for the subcommittee on Family Education.  15% off  all cabin  until <-  April SO  Kitchen  Cabinets  for every taste & budget  Janron  See our display of     Loc-Wood  Pandolfo    Citation     Carefree  At our Showroom  above the Twilight Theatre  Saturdays 10-5  Or anytime by appointment  $J) SUNSHINE KITCHENS  v^. 886-9411  Coast News, March 17, 1981  AliUlDRIi  CEDRR  nUIIICu     product of British Columbia  QUALITY LIVING WITH CEDAR  Every detail in a Lindal Cedar Home radiates gracious, yet sensible  living.

We do that in this country,���celebrate the Irish and the  Scottish, "national" days particularly, as well asothers, and it's  kind of nice. The first time I celebrated with the Scottish, for  instance, at their annual "Robbie Burns" feast, was only a few  years ago. So far as I know I have no claim to Scottish  ancestry, but I had a great time!  I am, however, a quarter-breed Irish, in that my grandmother  on my father's side of the family was of true Irish stock. Given  her address, by my father who had not seen her since he was a  mere lad, I went to see her in Portsmouth during W.W. II. In her  eighties, she was tall, proud, and walked straight as a ramrod.  She took my face in her hands muttering "Dodo", the  endearing expression for George, which was my father's  name.  Her's was a sad life. An Irish Catholic house maiden, she met  and fell in love with my grandfather, an Englishman, whose  family religion was that of the "staunch Wesleyan." They  married without the goodwill and permission of their  respective parents and were promptly cast off the family lines  and support. Hardship befell the young couple when my  grandfather became ill and died, leaving her with four young  children���two boys and two girls. The church took charge of  the boys, who at ages of 12 and 13 were shipped off to a  mission in Prince Albert, Canada. Those were different times.  w  March 17  'ST. PATRICK'S ft;  "SJJ  This is not intended as a "personal" story except to illustrate  a bit of the continuing religious problems between Protestant  and Catholic in that torn country���dear old Ireland.  St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland was taken there as a  slave, from the south of France, as a mere boy of 14. He was a  Christian, and saw how the Druids worshipped pagan Gods.  After six years, he escaped, and made his way to Gaul. In  response to a vision commanding him to evangelize Ireland, he  began studying for the priesthood.  He returned to Ireland as an ordained deacon, and was  consecrated in 432 A.D. upon the death of the first Bishop of  Ireland, thus becoming the second. In spite of determined  opposition from the Druids, Patrick organized the scattered  Christian communities and established numerous churches.  He also converted most of the royal family.  After a visit to Rome around the year 442 Patrick founded the  Cathedral Church of Armagh, in Ulster, which soon became  the spriritual center of the Irish Church.  There are numerous accounts of his miraculous doings  including that of his driving the snakes out of Ireland���and it  is true to this day (I am told) that thereare no snakes in Ireland.  This man is highly esteemed not only in Ireland, but  wherever the Irish immigrants and their descendants reside.  May ye who feast and celebrate on this day, "make sure ye see  no snakes."

Health/Education pilot  .Speech therapy draws praise  Speech therapy program on  the Sunshine Coast drew praise  from Dr. W.I.. I.aing of Ihe  Coast-Ciaribaldi Health Unit  meeting held recently in the  Village of Sechelt office.  : "A Health Eucation Advisory Committee meeting in  connection with the School  District #46 Speech and Language Program was held in  Gibsons on February 4. This  was attended by John Denley.  Superintendent ofSchools, Dr.  t.-cn Ellis, consultant in speech,  B.C. Ministry of Health,  speech pathologists Randy  Johnson and Margaret Ches-  lerman and myself.  "Dr. Ellis reported that the  success rate being achieved by  Chcslerman and Johnson  in  the treatment of severely  handicapped children was  second to none in B.C. and that  Ihis was due to the optimum  work conditions which had  been provided by School  District S46 and Mr. Denley.  Specifically mentioned by Dr.  Ellis were complete acceptance  of Ihe guidelines by School  District #46, accommodation  provided outside of school  buildings and "emotional support" from principals and  teachers.  "The problem of services to  adults and pre-school children  was discussed al this meeting  and agreement was reached  between Mr. Denley and Dr.  Ellis regarding a proposal to  the Ministry of Health for a one  year's pilot project which  would provide for a significant  proportion of time lo be  devoted to treatment of the  adult and pre-school population, ie. to a health district  program.  "This would be Ihe first  combined school district and  health district program in B.C.  Such programs are the logical  answer in centres where case  loads do not justify a full time  speech pathologist for either  school or health district programs."  An earlier request for a  speech therapist for Howe  Sound and the Coast for preschool children and the elderly  was turned down by the  Ministry of Health.  Quality of life  Kiwanis Care Home for elderly  Coast News, March 17, 1981  13  bv Fran Bourassa  "One thing about being  young" says Betty Wood, one  of the 36 residents of the  Kiwanis Village Care Home in  Gibsons, "is you never think  about getting old. It comes as  such a surprise."  In the bright and airy day  room, Betty tells me what it's  like to live in the Home.  "You decide which it's going  to be," she laughs, "the life of  a miserable old codger or that  of the nice old lady. You make  the best of it."  1 arrive at the tail end  of a piano recital and the  beginning of afternoon tea.  Fresh baked goods are being  served. "The food here is  terrific,"   she   informs   me.  Kathy Baxter, the head  nurse at the Home, explains  that residents are encouraged  to make this their home.  They can bring in their  personal favourite items and  their favourite easy chair if  they wish, into their private  rooms. "What we are interested in is the quality of  life."  The Kiwanis Village Care  Home opened its doors to the  first resident on November  17, 1980. The 36 resident  capacity was filled almost  immediately and the residents  are all local or have family  living on the coast.  "These people aren't sick,"  says Kathy Baxter, "they  have a physical or mental  disability that doesn't able  them to live without help or  supervision."  Residents have 24-hour care  under the caring and watchful  eye of a registered nurse.  "We have a terrific staff,  picked from quite a number of  applicants," says Shirley  Snell, the administrator of the  facility, who herself deserves  credit for turning an empty  building into a working operation.  Cost to a resident is $8.50  per day, S263 a month, an  affordable sum as the average  pensioner receives approximately $400 a month. The  non-profit organization is partially funded by the government in connection with the  long-term care program.  The hard working Gibsons  Kiwanis Club donated the  land on which the facility is  situated.  For entertainment, there is  a television in the day room  and card games, bingo, arts  and crafts, painting and, on  Tuesdays, an exercise class  under the supervision of a  physiotherapist.  "We hope by the end of  April to have a full-time  activity aide so we can provide  more programs in which the  rest of the community will be  able to participate at our adult  day care," says Shirley  Snell.

Such a period occurred during  the years from I9.'2-.17 when  alter working at various jobs in  the summer and fall months 1  returned to my little cabin  lucked away in the woods of  Glengarry. Actually 1 remember more ol what happened  during the winter months 1  spent there than I do of the  periods in between.  I went hack to my oldjobfor  the Ottawa Central Dairy in the  spring ol 1933 but that summer  I was not asked to assist in the  actual dairy operations in the  city. I he president of the firm  and my employer, Mr. Gamble,  owned about a half-mile of  waterfront on Lake Dechene  and over the years had built a  number of summer cottages on  Ins property which were rented  lor the most part to such people  who could afford to escape the  heat of the city. They were  mostly of the professional type,  doctors, dentists and lawyers  being among them. Mr. Gamble also had had erected a small  building which served as a  dropping off place for such  products as milk, cream,  butter, ice-cream, etc. I was put  in charge of that operation;  meeting and unloading the  truck around 6 a.m. and then  standing by to distribute the  items mentioned, as required,  to the cottagers when they  chose to call for them. Later on,  due to the number of requests  and partly by my suggestion, an  electric grill was installed and a  deep fryer put in. So now,  along with their regular requirements, these summer  residents had available to them  a last-food service consisting  mainly of hamburgers or hot  dogs and chips. Later on,  during my second summer  there, we expanded and added  that backbone of the British  Empire fish and chips. To say  that I was a busy fellow is to put  it mildly. Some days I could  hardly cope with it all and was  exhausted when night fell and  I was a ble to put up the shutters  and the "Closed" sign and  tumble into bed. only to be  awakened at 6 a.m. the next  morning by the arrival of the  truck Irom the city to announce  the commencing of another  day.  I think it was Shakespeare in  Twelfth Night who remarked  "Some are born great, some  achieve greatness and some  have greatness thrust upon  them" I would like to paraphrase thai siatement by  changing il lo read "Some arc  horn cooks, some achieve  culinary greatness and some  have cooking thrust upon  them." I take my place in the  latter category as all my life, so  n  appears now. I seemed to  The most  COMPLETE  GLASS  SHOP  around!  Home, Auto.

It all started very early in life  as, being the youngest of the  family and my mother's favourite, she had me in the kitchen  with her at every opportunity  and, while 1 cannot imagine my  being of any help in her  splendid efforts, she would give  me a piece of dough to play  with or later, to further the  pretence, let me give a few stirs  to the cake mix and assist at  whatever she happened to be  engaged in at the time.  Later on in my early days in  Canada. I can't recall on how  many occasions I was asked to  assist in the kitchen and, while I  possibly would have preferred  to work elsewhere, yet I didn't  exactly dislike it and seemed to  have a natural aptitude for  good preparation. As it turned  out that was to be my livelihood in later years, in fact right  up to the time I retired.  But I digress. To get back to  Lake Cechene and my summers  there. I worked hard and long  hours but Mr. Gamble was a  most generous and amiable  employer and 1 made more  money running that kiosk  down on the lakeshore than 1  would have working on the  farm or in the city. Unfortunately when it came time to  close up at summer's end, with  the cottagers' departure, 1 still  never seemed to be able to  return to my cabin with any  significant savings.  Naturally, with all this  activity going on at the lake. I  met a number of girls, mostly  daughters of those professional  men, but try as I might I never  could seem to get on intimate  terms with any of them. 1 could  not in all justice accuse them of  holding themselves aloof from  me or putting on airs, by  comparing their positions in  life with mine, but there was an  unseen and unsolvable barrier  somewhere   between   us.

After  all these years I still think of the  picture she made, standing al  water side in her one-piece  scarlet bathing suit! Unfortunately of all the girls I had logo  and pick the Dairy's vice-  president's eldest daughter and  it was hopeless right from the  start. I recall blowing a whole  month's salary on her in one  single night by taking her into  Ottawa by taxi, wining and  dining her with a movie to  follow and another laxi to get  her home and all I got out of  that deal was a passionless  peck, masquerading as a kiss,  when I bade her goodnight.  On another occasion, 1  thought I had found a second  Lolita in the person of Iris G.,  but I had to drop her like a hot  potato when I discovered that  even although she had all the  volative and explosive ingredients of a firecracker, she was  only fourteen going fifteen, in  other "San Qucntin Quail"  and. although my desire for her  or for that matter any other  young and willing female was  intense, 1 had no wish to spend  the next few years of my life  sequestered behind the bars of  Kingston Penintentiary.  There was nothing else for it,  after all these months of  repression, but a trip to Hull  before returning to "dig in" for  the winter and those girls over  there certainly were adept at  relieving a man not only of his  anxieties and tensions but of  his hard-earned stake all in one  operation. As 1 have remarked  previously. I seldom came back  with any appreciable amount  of cash but at least I had a  warm, snug little log house,  good neighbours and friends  and good health.

"We will be more than  adequately paid back if we  grant the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre their request for $500."  said Director Joe Harrison.  The regional Board received a  letter from the Arts Council  asking for funding to help them  realize their endeavours in  planning their Second Annual  Arts Festival.  The council in conjunction  with Continuing Education  have a preliminary plan to offer  17 workshops over a two-week  period covering a wide range of  activities including painting,  music, silkscreen, video, batik,  photography, weaving and  mask making, plus a number of  activities for children.  Special events planned so far  include a Craft fair, special  exhibit at the Arts Centre on  masks, a children's mask  parade, music, poetry reading,  a play, winding up with a gala  masked ball.  Continuing Education has  offered facilities for workshops  and office space for the coordinator of the Arts Centre.  Keith Wallace.  "This festival will be a major  community event and will  attract people to Sechelt from  all over the Sunshine Coast as  well as the lower mainland. The  calibre of the events and  workshops will be high."  promises Wallace.  "We have already approached the B.C. Cultural Fund  and the Vancouver Foundation  for funding which looks promising, and the Arts Council  has committed itself to contributing $1,000 as well as its  facilities and many volunteers,"  said Wallace in his letter.  The Summer Arts Festival is  slated to take place from  August 4th to the 14th.

LIMITED  BUSINESS  DEVELOPS  145 West 15th Street,  North Vancouver, V7M 1R9  ANNOUNCING BRITISH COLUMBIA'S  NEW EMPLOYMENT STANDARDS ACT  YOUR OBLK^TJONS  AS AN EMPLOYER.  British Columbia has a new law that affects  virtually every employer in the province. The  Employment Standards Act (1981) establishes  new, higher standards in most aspects of  employment.  It is important for every employer to be aware  of the applications of this law. Further  information, and leaflets, may be obtained at  any provincial Ministry of Labour office.  The following is an outline of the major areas  affected.  Wage protection and  new minimum wage  As of December 1, 1980 the minimum wage in  British Columbia was increased to $3.65 an  hour for persons 18 years and over, and to  $3.00 an hour for persons under 18.  The new Act stipulates when employers must  pay wages, which deductions are allowable,  which details must appear on pay  statements, and what employees' rights are  on termination of employment.  Hours of work and overtime  Most employees (with certain exceptions) are  entitled to a half-hour eating period every  five hours, and to 32 consecutive hours off  each week. There are also new regulations  regarding shifts.  Overtime pay at 1 Vi times the regular rate  must be paid for the first three hours worked  beyond the normal eight-hour day, and  double time after that.  Annual vacations and  general holidays  Employees are entitled to two weeks paid  vacation after each year worked, and three  weeks after five consecutive years of work.  Most people who work on any of the nine  general holidays must be paid overtime, and  must also receive another day off later.  Maternity leave  980-6571  Maternity leave is a right in this province and  employees must be reinstated in their job, or  a comparable one, on their return.  Up to 18 weeks leave, without pay, may be  taken. During the absence, all benefit plans  must be continued, provided the employee  pays her normal share.  A leaflet is available dealing with Maternity  Leave.  Farm and Domestic work  There is now a minimum daily wage of $29.20  for live-in domestics and most agricultural  employees (except piece-workers).  Farm labour contractors are required to be  licensed, must pay employees each week  and, in addition, all wage rates must be  displayed at the work-site.  A leaflet is available dealing with Farm and  Domestic Work.  Termination of employment  Employers are required to give minimum  periods of written notice when laying off an  employee. These are: two weeks tor  employees who have worked at least six  consecutive months; and three weeks, after  three years, increasing by one week per year  of employment to a maximum of eight weeks.  The New  Employment Standards Act  IT MAKES RC. ABETTER  PLACE TO WORK  There are a number of circumstances in  which written notice is not required.  A leaflet is available dealing with Termination  of Employment.  Complaints and appeals  Employees may file a complaint under the  Act with the Employment Standards Branch,  Ministry of Labour. Employers, and employees, may appeal any decision made by the  Branch.  Employee protection  Employers are prohibited from terminating,  suspending or disciplining any employee  who files a complaint under the Employment  Standards Act.  Employees are also protected under the Act  from employers persuading them to accept  work by false representation or misleading  advertising.

Infclix  '��� Today's church congregations may be missing the true  focus of their mission iftheydo  1101 focus squarely on the  oommon struggle of each one  iil us to make sense out of the  demands and complexities  which our very existence  thrusts upon us.  This, more than anything  else, probably describes with  great accuracy, the mission of  Jesus when he travelled the  dusty roads of Palestine  Jesus of Nazareth, we are  told, "though he was in the  form of Ciod, did not count  equality with (rod a thing to be  grasped, but emptied himself,  taking the form of a servant,  being horn in the likeness of  men." (Philippians 2:6,7).  Wc arc told in scripture that  Jesus chose to take on the frail  mantle of humanity in order  lhat he could bring the good  news of the gospel to the men  and women of the world -good  news which was. and is. capable  of leading men and women to  their "authentic" role, as sons  and daughters of God.  Jesus brought this good news  by word, by deed, and by  example, offering it freely to  all. bul concentrating most of  Ins efforts on those who needed  help the most - the sick,  disenfranchised, confused, and  we are told he had compassion  for I hem, "because they were  harassed and helpless, like  sheep without a shepherd."  (Matthew 9:36).  Surely anyone who is not  living a life packed in cotton  wool and wearing rose-colored  glasses must recognize that fact  lhat the majority of the world's  teeming masses are living in  exactly that predicament today, and that Ihe world was  never more in need of a clear  and simple message of hope!  Ihe world is in need of  hearing Ihe message, in all its  awesome magnificence, yet  told in words and deeds and  examples lor living so simply  and forcefully that it cannot  possibly be misunderstood.  Ihis message, as the great  Swiss theologian and pastor,  I mil Brunner, once said, must  he told in the language of the  newspaper!  The message  must be topical  It must be, like the newspaper, timely and topical, cast  in everyday language with  words of few syllables, succinctly and powerfully.  The telling of this heart-  stopping message is not a task  confined to a select few, or  required to be told in stringent  doctrinal terms ��� it is to be  embraced, understood, and  relayed by everyone who  answers the Great Commission  of Matthew 28:19!  In order for this message to  punch home at the hearts of its  hearers and observers, it must  be told, however, by those who  have themselves appropriated  the message fully, so that they  are fully aware of what it means  to be right with God - to be fully  authentic.  It is not sufficient to be able  to mouth religious platitudes,  spout "proof-texts" from the  Bible, and to witness to doctrinal beliefs which are incomprehensible to the average  audience.  The common struggle of  man is aimed at understanding  his or her relationship to the  world and all that is in it, and  usually takes in a sense of  curiosity about the world or  worlds. beyond the material  parameters of this world of  ours.  In all too many cases, the  human dilemma is such that it  is difficult to get beyond the  very primitive curiosity in a life  where each day's are expended  in a desperate struggle to keep  body and soul together, to find  some kind of food and some  form of shelter.  It is virtually impossible to  talk to the desperately deprived  segments of the world about  faith, hope and love, unless we  first extend the love that will  alleviate their urgent physical  needs.  It is even more impossible to  talk to the favored segments of  the world about the proclamation of faith, hope and love to  the deprived segment, unless  those comfortable Christians  can first be brought to an  awareness of what it means to  be fully human, truly "authentic" sons and daughters of God.

Jesus recognized this, and he  recognized such people as the  Roman centurion, the young  ruler and Nathanael, the Israelite in whom there was "no  guile," (John 1:47), as those  who had grappled with their  identity, and taken responsibility for who they were.  Today's secular experts are  in agreement about very little,  when it comes to the inner  person, but they do seem to  concur that it is necessary to  come to grips with oneself  before any genuine peace and  confidence can result.  Many of the saints of the  church, down through the ages,  have recognized this truth, and  have carried their message into  the hovels, shacks and back  alleys of the world, ministering  to their physical needs before  addressing their spiritual hunger.  It was because these saints of  the church, like Jesus, felt that  power and position were not  valuable treasures to be embraced, that they were able to  recognize the fears and needs  which were blocking the "least  of these," their neighbors, from  hearing the message of faith,  hope and love with understanding.  It was in their humility that  they found authenticity, it was  in the human struggle they  found the way to victory.  Who should know that  better than the church?

The society re-elected its executive for a second term.  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  The Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary met on Wednesday,  March 3, 1981, at the Calvary  Baptist Church. Vice-President  Joan Rigby chaired the meeting and 25 members were  present.  This was a particularly  interesting and special meeting  as Gibsons Auxiliary played  host to the Port Mellon  Auxiliary at a 'casserole luncheon' ' what a good idea this  turned out to be. Eleven ladies  from Port Mellon attended. A  fruit punch was served and  friends chatted before sitting  down to an ample and delicious  lunch. The tables were tastefully decorated with lovely big  bowls of heather and daffodils,  all Spring colours, and when  the candles were lit, the  atmosphere   was  warm  and  Roberts Creek Auxiliary  On March 11,19 members of  the Roberts Creek Auxiliary  met with president Beverley  Northway in the chair.  Encouraging committee reports were presented and a  need was expressed by the Gift  Shop Committee for baby  outfits and shrug-type bed  jackets. Wool for these garments is available from the Gift  Shop at the hospital.  The meeting was reminded  of the mini-bazaar at the  hospital March 13 and of the  bear-rug raffle in June. Both  these projects are to enhance  the enjoyment of the residents  on Extended Care.  The budget requirements for  new and replacement equipment at St. Mary's hospital  were presented with full discussion and recommendations  to be forwarded to the Coordinating council.

It is felt that members from  both auxiliaries went home  feeling that the day had been  well spent.

Mrs. Pearl  Dove will convene, with the  assistance of Mrs. Stella Morrow, Mrs. Violet Harris and  Mrs. Elizabeth Johnston, not  to mention the many volunteers who have offered their  invaluable services behind the  tables. The standard of baking  will be excellent, we know, and  the committee would like to  take this opportunity to thank  all members for their efforts in  making the project a success.

For the past several decades our  society has been on an energy diet consisting  ofa large proportion of petroleum products.  This booklet presents a new diet of  conservation and efficient use of appropriate  fuels.  FUEL ECONOMY AND YOU  2. In B.C. automobiles consume  almost one-half of all our petroleum  products, 17 million barrels. This booklet  presents positive suggestions for reducing the  amount of fuel we each use in our cars.  ENERGY:  THE CANADIAN PICTURE  3. This is designed as a teacher's  guide to an audiovisual educational kit  consisting of five films: Energy - The Rtels  and Man; Energy in Perspective; ,���  Dawn of the  Solar Age; Kitsilano Solar House; and The  Hottest Show in Town. It does, however, also  stand on its own in helping teachers present  energy issues in the classroom.  ENERGY MANAGEMENT  FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS  4. This manual is for people who are  in the business of buildings. It shows the  potential for existing buildings to save money  and energy, and it explains how to set up an  energy management programme. It even  presents a creative strategy for financing  these improvements.  ADVENTURE IN ENTROPIA  5. This is a combination story-  colouring book for children in grades 3  through 7. It uses the imaginary land of  Entropia and some colourful characters to  present a discussion of energy conservation  and its value in preserving non-renewable  resources, especially oil. Among the concepts  discussed are: energy conservation in  transportation, home insulation, passive solar  energy, recycling, reduction of excessive  packaging, wise use of appliances, energy  conservation in recreation and the creation of  jobs in a conserver society.  ENERGY AND THE HOME  YOUR CHOICE, OUR FUTURE  6. This booklet covers the energy  savings which could be achieved by various  levels of conservation and passive solar  energy in both retrofit situations and new  buildings. In addition to showing savings  which can be achieved, it shows the different  approaches which can be adopted to achieve  each level of energy saving.  Send for these free energy posters, too!

Interviews with a  member of the deceased's  family were being aired,  threatening a cross-Canada  publicity campaign to discourage Canadians from holidaying on the Islands.  The Hawaiian Bureau ol  Tourism was much concerned  by the adverse publicity  on the Islands' economy as  many flights originate in  Canada and bring in thousands of Canadians. Many of  our Hawaiian friends were  also concerned as they frequently visit Canada and  friends here.  Since returning to Vancouver a couple of weeks ago,  we were shocked to read of  the murder of a seventeen-  year old girl who was just  getting started in life and of  the abduction and rape of a  mute girl student of a vocational school by three men,  not yet identified.  We are still reminded of the  tragic incident right here on  our own Coast last fall. Hardly  a day goes by that we don't  read of drug related incidents  and tragedies in our own  country of Canada.  Confucius had an appropriate maxim which nicely  covers the above analogy:  "People who live in glass  houses should not throw  stones!"  And especially when they  are being lobbed from 4,000  miles across the seal  �� * ��  There may be trouble in  Paradise but we neither saw  nor heard of a single incident  during the two weeks we  stayed at Kona on the Big  Island.  Over the years, we have  made many friends on the  Islands: Auntie Emma Sharpe  and her Hawaiian entertainers  on Maui; Irmgard Iluli and her  daughters who entertain a  luncheon show at the 'Willows' in Waikiki; and now  our newest friends at the Kona  Bay Hotel in Kona.  Our hosts were Jeanne and  Kimo, son and daughter-in-  law of "Uncle Billy" who also  own the Kona Inn and the Hilo  Bay Hotel in the Big Island's  largest city. They are an old  Hawaiian family who adore  Canadians. Before we left we  were being considered as  'family'.  My Lucy has an unerring  instinct for sniffing out the  'right place' to live when we  are travelling. She did it on  Maui; she did it on Oahu;  and for the third time around,  on the Big Island. If any of you  folks are planning a trip to that  fabulous land, give her a call.  She'll fill you in I  ��� * *  If one were to go looking for  trouble in Hawaii, the Big  Island is where one would  expect to find it.  During a twelve month  period of 1979-80, Police  records show that 73,000  pounds of marijuana with a  street value of more than $14  million dollars, was put to the  torch and went up in smoke.  This is estimated to be only  about 10 to 12% of the weed  produced on the Island.  Actual production could go  as high as 7.10,000 pounds  with a street value of $140  million dollars.  Connoisseurs of the weed  harvest only the 'kola', or  flower part which produces  about three pounds per tree.  This is called 'Kona Gold' and  retails for up to $200.00 per  ounce. The leaves, or "shake"  brings about $20.00 an ounce.  It is estimated that 15% of  the population of the Big  Island is growing the weed,  which adds up to about 13,000  people. Surprisingly, many  elderly Japanese men in their  70's and 80's are farming the  crop and running it like a  family business.  The local gauge of how  successful the crop yield has  been is to count the number of  new, 4-wheel drive vehicles  running the streets. This type  of vehicle is required to  traverse the rough terrain  where the 'Pakalolo' (pot) is  grown.  Must have been a good  year. We counted many of the  shiny, new, gussied-up wagons cruising around  Kona.  On the Hilo side of the  Island, which is the 'windward' side, we toured through  miles of sugar cane fields.  The cane requires much more  moisture for a good crop and  we were told that the rainfall  on the Kona side was only  about 10% of the Hilo side.  The Pakalolo and Cane crops  are compatible - they each  require different soil and  weather conditions so do not  encroach    on    each    other.  Cane is the only other  agricultural crop grown on the  Island, outside of the world's  largest Macadamian Nut Farm  on the South Island, besides  marijuana. The unprocessed  Cane crop produced $79.5  millions in 1979. Imagine what  legalized marijuana would do  to the Island's economy, but  what a terrible thought.  Readers Digest is presently  running columns on the  effects on the human mind  and body of smoking 'pot'.  Another source of worry for  the troubled parent with  youngsters experimenting  with the weed I  * * ��  Not many beaches on the  Big Island, but every hotel has  a pool. They are usually clean  and sanitary, no sand and grit  to fight and most of them have  facilities nearby for a 'tall and  cool' while soaking up the sun.  Saw some big Marlin  being weighed in. One was  632 pounds, another 441  and many others at 200 to 300  pounds. One big one caught in  the area a few years ago  weighed 1450 pounds.

The doctors of British Columbia already  have the highest fee schedule in the  country. This schedule is the result of  successful negotiations with the provincial  government in past years... 8.11% increase  in 1979,9.7% in 1980.  But this year is different!  The government entered the current  negotiations willing to have an equitable  agreement concluded with the British Columbia Medical Association. The offer was  made of a 15.2% increase, which meant an  average increase per doctor of $14,240 a  year, at an additional cost to the B.C.  taxpayer of over $64 million for 1981.  But the British Columbia Medical Association wants more!  They are demanding an increase of  almost 70%, which would cost $296 million  more than what was paid to the doctors in  1980.

General  Practitioners will receive an average  increase of $15,800, while a number will  receive considerably more. Specialists will  receive an average annual increase of  approximately ,$13,700, with a number  receiving much more than that amount.  The BCMA has stated that it wishes to  charge patients an extra levy for medical  services over the amount being offered by  the government. This extra levy would be  through extra-billing by the doctors.  It is the objective of the government of  British Columbia to continue to provide  every B.C. citizen with the highest possible  standard of health services, while providing  the doctors of the province with equitable  remuneration for their services. In all of this  the government recognizes the importance  of managing the financial resources of the  province in a responsible manner.  Province of British Columbia  MINISTRY OF HEALTH  Hon. James A. Nielsen, Minister  ��� Coast News, March 17, 1981  17  An afternoon at school  IViaryanne ��� s  vie^  |       by Murymne Wert  ; I spent an afternoon last  [week at school. Gibsons  Elementary School is having a  St. Patrick's Day Fair from  6:30 - 9:00 p.m. to raise  'money for the school field  trips and in every classroom  there were busy children  putting the finishing touches  to a wide variety of projects.  1 can remember going into  that school, I've known it for  pi most 25 years, when not a  child was in sight, all shut  away behind closed classroom  doors and the place appeared  |o be deserted except for the  drone of teacher's voices, but  this afternoon it resembled a  beehive at the height of the  summer season. Everywhere  (here was activity and busy,  happy children, quietly, without fuss or argument involved  in all manner of learning  experiences. Unfailingly friendly kids, willing to involve a  visitor in their interests  whether it was a kindergartener cutting out a lep-  jechaun, a demonstration of  remote controlled racing cars,  or the assurance that despite  the dark clouds and noon  hour shower the weatherman  had promised us a sunny  afternoon.  Whatever the weather outside one felt the atmosphere  within the school remains  pleasantly relaxed. Oh, there  are squalls now and then,  inevitably with 500 or so kids  misunderstandings and quarrels are bound to erupt.  If you're one of those who  regret the retirement of the  strap as an aid to discipline  you might change your mind if  you witnessed the patience  and calm with which quarrels  are sorted out. If necessary,  the combatants given time to  cool off before the matter is  discussed. Accusations and  counter-accusations faced and  slowly understood, eventually'  apologies traded and accepted, another lesson learnt in  how to get along with other  people, how to temper the  rough edges of a personality  so that one is less abrasive  to others. Not acquired in  six easy lessons, of course, but  each confrontation worked  through to mutual understanding provides an extension of the child's growth.  Classroom displays and  those along the corridors  retain the traditional recognition for those who strive  for excellence in core skills  while in quiet corners of  classrooms children with disabilities, both physical and  emotional, who need extra  help and reassurance work  with special aides, moving in  and out of the mainstream  activities as they feel able,  obviously accepted by their  peers.  But to get back to the St.  Patrick's Day Fair, there'll be  all sorts of attractive specialty  items made by the children as  well as the usual white elephants, those wonderful articles of junk which all mothers hope to get rid of, only  to have their children bring  back an equal or larger  collection, proving again that  one man's junk is another  man's treasure.  There will be sand-cast  candles in lovely colours and  interesting shapes, square  white candles decorated with  pressed flowers and leaves.  Marionette roosters that walk  with proud realistic steps,  stopping now and then to  peck at imaginary crumbs.  Grade Sevens were making  whimsical little dolls standing  on huge clay feet, each  reflecting its creator's sense  of the ridiculous. Miss Brookes, coping with paint and  glue and the feeling of being  all thumbs, was heard to  murmur "never again" but  the children were obviously  happy with the results of their  work; each doll with an individual personality. Other  Grade Sevens had made most  attractive dolls' furniture from  wooden clothes pins; settees,  stools and authentic old-style  rocking chairs.  Kindergarten parents have  supplied recipes for a cookbook made most attractive  by the children's decorations  and drawings. In another  classroom tie-dyed T-shirts in  bright colours hung to dry  from a clothes line strung  across the room.  All these things, plus books  and comics, a bake sale and  plant booth and all the fun of  the Fair, Bingo, a cake  walk, a Dutch auction, games  and toys, kites and a raffle.  Raffle prizes include a child's  Cowichan sweater, macrame  and a food hamper.  The children want to make  enough money for their excursions and camps, but the  important thing really is to  have fun. Mothers and fathers  and grandparents will of  course be there, but if your  children, have long since  left elementary school you  might enjoy an evening's  nostalgia as well as all the fun  of the fair. Oh, and there'll  be tea and refreshments, an  opportunity to meet old  friends and make new and  don't be late if you have a  mind to buy one of those cute  dolls or a marionette I  It's a  matter of time  If you need temporary protection, term insurance is great. But if you're looking for  protection you can never outlive, permanent  life insurance is your answer.  Call me today.  Geoff Hodgklnton  Box 957,  Glbiom, B.C.

When some one dear departs, the loss is often  accompanied by a feeling of hopelessness.  But reach out to your friends and you'll find  the strength you need. In such a time  you can rely on us... we understand.  886-9551  D. A. Devlin   Director  1665 Seaview  Gibsons  gy, referring to solar systems  as "exotic energy systems"  the technology has developed  to the point where an entire  condominium apartment complex in the Kitsilano area of  Vancouver is heated almost  entirely by solar systems.  Solar systems remain too  cumbersome and too "exotic"  in the general imagination to  be widely adopted at present,  but the decision to "go solar"  isn't an either/or proposition.  Solar systems can be adapted  to assist conventional heating  systems and substantially  reduce the amount and cost of  energy used.  Many "solar homes" give  the appearance of having been  designed around their heating  systems. Mrs. Isabella Richardson's solar-assisted house  on Creekside Crescent in  Gibsons is, in its outward  appearance, an ordinary small  Tudor-style home.  However, the utility room  at the side of the house  supports two 3 foot by 8 foot  solar collector panels (total  area 48 square feet). The  panels serve a 120 gallon  storage tank with a built-in  heat exchanger. The storage  tank is not much larger  in diameter than a regular  hot water tank and is installed in the laundry room.  The panels, manufactured  by Solarsystems Industries  Ltd. of Richmond, B.C.,  transmit enough of the direct  heat of the sun to the storage  tank that only a minimal  amount of conventional energy is required to raise the  temperature of the water for  household use. The system  will cut the cost of hot  water heating by up to 60% of  the cost of conventional  heating alone.  In terms of energy conservation any solar house,  or any house at all for that  matter, is only as good  as its insulation. Designed  and built by a local firm,  Heartwood Design & Construction Ltd., the 1420 square  foot, l'/i storey Richardson  house employs staggered wall  framing to reduce heat and  cold conduction between in  terior and exterior walls, a  source of heat loss even in  relatively well-insulated  homes.  Staggered wall framing  (see accompanying illustration) uses standard 2" x 4"  pre-cut studs, alternately  spaced on 24" centres. Since  the studs touch only one wall,  not two, they cannot transfer  heat and cold. The space  created by what is, in effect,  a "double wall", allows  room for up to R30 insulation.  Staggered wall framing  costs an average of 14% more  than conventional framing,  adding between $250 and $350  to the cost of an average  house. (This cost increase  applies only to the actual  framing, all other costs are the  same as conventional construction.)  However, in addition to  energy saved, staggered wall  framing has incidental fringe  benefits. The deeper walls  mean that plumbing and electrical installation time and  costs are reduced, since cables  and pipes can be run through  walls with a minimum of drilling and cutting. Soundproofing is also vastly improved, since stagger framed  walls don't conduct sound  waves any better than they  conduct   heat;   a   welcome  feature in high density traffic  areas.  If you're building a house  now, or thinking of doing so in  the future, you literally can't  afford to build without keeping the dwindling supply  and rising cost of energy  uppermost in mind. With  the money you save, you can  say to hell with it and go to  Hawaii for the winter.

This vitamin is  one of the most commonly  talked about of all the vitamins.  Most animals produce their  own Vitamin C. Only humans  and a few other species must  consume Ascorbic Acid.  Vitamin C is involved in the  formation of connective tissue.  A deficiency causes impairment of wound healing.  The recommended daily  intake of Vitamin C are found  in fresh citrus fruits, fresh  strawberries, mellons and  pineapples.  The question of VitaminC(4  - 15 g. per day) for prevention  and treatment of the common  cold has been looked at very  closely. The results indicate  that is "little convincing  evidence to support claims of  clinically important efficacy."  Large doses of Vitamin C  may be harmful.  (1) The most important effect  of Vitamin C from a  Pharmacist's point of view  is the drug interaction with  warfarin. If both Vitamin  C and warfarin are taken  together, prothrombin  time must be measured  regularly.  (2) Ascorbic Acid improves  the absorption of iron.  (3) Urine glucose tests (Tes-  tape* and Clinistic*),  used by diabetics may read  falsely negative and Clini-  test��   tablets   may   read  falsely positive. (Test^J.  tape�� can be dipped in thej-  urine and the color correla��i  tion made at the moving?'  front of the liquid on the-*  tape. This is where the"  glucose can separate fronfj  the Vitamin C.)  (4) Acidic drugs such as ASA '���  and drugs that are taken [  with food such as anti-  arthritic, anti-inflamma- '  tory drus are reabsorbed  by the kidneys into the  body to a greater extend.,  when the urine is acidified ;  as with Vitamin C. ;  (5) On the other hand if the ;  drug is basic, such as the ;  tricyclic antidepressants ;  (amitriptylinc), it is excreted more rapidly in acidi- ,  Tied urine and the effect is  therefore decreased.  Problems   with   prolonged  usage of large doses of Vitamin   !  C may cause; /���'  1. Increased mobilization of'  bone minerals, making*;  bones weaker.  2. Formation of uric acid ;  stones.  3. Possible dependency upon" '���  large doses of VilaminC so !  that   smaller  doses   no,'  longer   meet   nutritional  needs.  My   personal   feeling  on '���  Vitamin C is that if you feel a ;  cold coming on it will not hurt  ;  to take one to two gram of ;  Vitamin C per day for a few /  days. It may help. However, for  everyday use more than two',  hundred and fifty mg., is not!  recommended. !

On the  Seafood Platter  Coast News, March 17, 1981  21  by Chak-Chak  At long last the Department  of Fisheries has announced  that Area 16 will be open to  fishing for shellfish except  butter clams (saxidomus gigan-  teus). Area 16 includes the  waters lying adjacent to Thor-  manby Island, Texada Island,  Pender Harbour, Bargain Bay,  Hardy Island, Egmont Area,  Jervis and Sechelt Inlets.  I do not understand why  butter clams still retain unacceptable levels of P.S.P. but  apparently this is the reason  they are still banned. For the  benefit of those who are not  sure what a butter clam looks  like, here is the description.  Butter clams are the most  abundant clams in B.C. and are  widely distributed from northern California to Alaska. They  are commercially important  and are used mainly for  canning. Growing up to five  inches, they have fat, heavy,  solid shells with well defined  concentric rings and no radiating ribs. Colour is primarily  greyish-white. Often partially  open, with a black-tipped  protruding siphon (neck), they  can be found on any type of  beach, particularly a mixture of  sand, gravel and broken shell.  One can often find them  nestling in the gravel patches  between large boulders. Their  normal colour can be affected  by the surrounding sand or  gravel and I have found  variations from yellow to  brown and even black. The  range of these clams is the  lower third of the intertidal  zone with the large ones  burying themselves to 12  inches, the smaller ones not as  deep.   ,  So the butter clams are still  not safe to eat, however we can  now enjoy the other varieties if  we can find them. Good clam  digging spots are getting hard  to find and if one finds such a  place it is wise to keep it a well  guarded secret.  A Gibsons based fishing boat  The Arctic Fox II owned and  skippered by Ivan Tentchoff.  with the Katimavik people as  crew, recently went on a clam  digging trip to the top end of  the Gulf of Georgia. The  skipper  found  that  his  old  favourite spots were closed due  to red tide or had been depicted  by too many people trying to  find an alternative to the  dwindling fish stocks of other  species.  So if you know a good clam  bed, silently take your shovel  and bucket and take only  enough for your own use.  Sea you.  Formed by March Society  Backyard habitat committee  by Katie Angermeyer  Sechelt Mirth Society  The Federation of B.C.  Naturalists if compiling information for a booklet on  backyard habitat and its improvement for wildlife. They  have asked our club to form a  committee to answer a questionnaire pertaining to our  local backyard habitats. I  assume they mean cultivating  plants (especially native) which  provide food and cover for  wildlife.  I am all in favour of the idea,  and feel that such a book with  local information would be  most helpful to me as I plan my  own garden. 1 know there are  certain flowers which attract  hummingbirds, goldfinches  love thistles, kinglets love cedar  trees, woodpeckers love dead  fir, racoons love dog bowls,  and bears love garbage cans.  Gardening for wildlife can be  a great way to organize interested neighbours to enhance the  beauty, enjoyment (and dollar  value) of their collective properties. The more people who  garden with wildlife in mind,  the more effective is the habitat  for humans and the other  critters.  I MISC.

Nature Note  b\ Vlckl deBoer  There arc two North Ameri-  ean woodpeckers that have  made a habit of feeding on the  sap front trees thus they have  been named Sapsuckers. The  more common of the two. the  Yellow Bellied Sapsucker frequents Ihis area in the spring  and summer months. Sap-  suckers are migratory birds  and they migrate in small  flocks, Hying at considerable  heights with Ihe typical  roller coaster-like flight of  woodpeckers with alternate  Happing and gliding movements. These small flocks  use abandoned woodpecker  or squirrel holes in trees  to roost in at night.  Once they arrive in their  summer habilat they begin  searching for a mate by  tapping trees at a rale of two  or three bursts of taps per  minute and waiting for a  reply. When paired both the  male and female work to  excavate a nest hole in the  trunk of a dead tree. Both  parents share the job of  incubating the five white eggs  for a forthnight. Once the  babies are feathered and leave  the nest Ihe parents will  continue to feed them for a  few more days and then they  are on their own.  A sure sign of the presence  of a Sapsucker are neat  parallel rows of holes in a tree  trunk. A hole is drilled and the  sap. which is rich in sugars, is  sipped or lapped until the sap  hardens then a similar hole is  drilled next to the first until  the three is girdled with holes.  The Sapsucker may then  move up a few inches or move  lo another tree. Many insects  are attracted to the sap and  are captured there by the  Sapsucker or other birds.  The Sapsucker's main diet is  in fact insects with the sap  as an extra treat.  Sapsuckers are considered a  nuisance in many areas especially to fruit farmers and  woodsmen. In some cases  their drilling may actually kill  a tree but more often than not  the holes heal and little  damage is done, however the  tree's market value as timber  is lost. Their tree drilling  habits arc beneficial to many  oilier birds and animals which  also feed on the sap. Hummingbirds especially appreciate this source of food plus  many other small birds feed  on it. Also flying squirrels  and even porcupines have  been seen feeding from  Sapsucker holes.  Sapsuckers resemble other  woodpeckers in build. The  Yellow Bellied Sapsucker is  about eight and a half inches  long with black upper parts,  mottled with white and the  undcrparts are yellow with a  black band on the chest. The  head is black and white with  red patches on the forehead  (Sapsuckers are the only  woodpeckers with red on the  forehead) and some red on the  chin. There is also a red  faced variety that has a  completely crimson head and  throat but they arc not as  common. You can recognize a  Sapsucker when feeding as  they stand well clear of the  trunk rather than hug it like  other woodpeckers.

In Memoriam -  Ed Thomson  by Fred (mice  Edmund Price Thomson, 79. former advertising manager  for the Coast News, died March 2 in St. Mary's Hospital. A  memorial funeral service wad held March 10 in St.  Bartholomew's Anglican Church. Rev. John Robinson  officiating. Following cremation the ashes of Mr. Thomson  will be cast on the waters of Mariners Rest. Thomborough  Island, Howe Sound.  Mr. Thomson has displayed considerable interest in  marine events particularly sailing vessels. When in  Winnipeg where he was born and educated al public schools  and St. John's College, he was Port Captain of the Cutty  Sark Club, an organization devoted to Ihe preservation of  sailing vessels with histories of renown.  On leaving educational institutions behind he joined the  Winnipeg Free Press editorial staff and from there branched  into public relations with Ihe Hudson Bay Company.  He reached his zenith w hen he joined the Norris Patterson  Advertising Agency later absorbed by the MacLarcn  Advertising Agency. He retired in 1964 when both heand his  wife enjoyed some travelling. His retirement also affected  his association with the Winnipeg Press Club of which he  was its librarian.  While devoted to books he maintained a high quality in  what he absorbed from literature. But his strong point was  his interest in sailing vessels. In his home until recently, a  display under glass was a large model of the well-known to  navigators "Flying Cloud" of the early days of such shipping  in the Boston Coastal area. This museum piece is now in the  hands of the Master Marine Museum in Vancouver and  eventually it will reach Ihe Provincial Museum in Victoria.  In the later stages of Mr. Thomson's CoasI News career,  he orginated with the co-operation of Fred Cruice. editor, a  weekly column headed Mainly About People which covered  the careers of numerous Sunshine Coast inhabitants.  The ceremony to take place at Mariner's Rest will be  performed by Capl. Allen Cabot. World Secretary of the  Merchant Marine organization and Capt. William York  Higgs. of Gibsons.  He leaves his wife Olive and a daughter Barbara who Hew  home from Israel where she and her husband have been for  several years.

Bill Lindsay, needs a holiday and he might get  one if Director Brian Slelck's recommendation to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs is well received.  A submission will be made to request a pilot program for the  regional district to employ a resident approving officer on the stall  instead of having to deal out of Burnaby and in addition to the  department of highways approving officer.  Not only would this experiment free the planning slatt lo do  their planning but it would also speed up developers approval of  subdivision application.  At the moment. over40developmentsureawaitingnpprovnlb)  the board. Director Joe Harrison suggested thai a "wholesale  revision of the by-laws was badly needed and should be made top  priority".  Regional planner. Bill Lindsay, also expressed similiar  opinions in his planning report:  "I believe lhat the original by-laws were dialled under a 'loose) -  goosey' philosophy wherein Ihe Board believed thai people moved  up to Ihe Sunshine Coast to get away from strict regulations. Now  that this regional district is growing rapidly, we are being  inundated by petitions and complaints to tighten up our  regulations.  "With the new staff member arriving in April. 1 can now take  steps to commence a project which has been long overdue. A new  planning by-law."  The approving officer's authority would include easy access to  the Technical Planning Committee and the Department of  Highways for quick decisions, in effect making subdivision  approval a one-stop affiar for developers. As il stands now the  committee meets only once or twice a month.  Director Harry Almond slated that a stipulation might be  made by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs that all community  plans be complete before the program could commence.
