Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  B L I S H E D     19 4 5  August 24,1992 Volume 46 Issue 34  Sinking the HMCS Chaudiere in Sechelt  by Jane Seyd  In her active life, she was the height  of Cold War technology: a 367-foot  Restigouche Destroyer Escort, designed  specifically to attack enemy submarines, with the latest in sonar, guns,  homing torpedoes and protection from  atomic fallout.  But her final resting place will be  peaceful.  On the bottom of the ocean floor, the  HMCS Chaudiere will provide an artificial habitat for fish and marine life, a  destination for divers, and - not co-inci-  dcntally - a hefty boost lo tourism dollars in a local community.  While the Chaudiere, purchased  Library,  museum  services  reduced  by Charles Hart  Hard times are here for those  who enjoy borrowing books or  browsing local artifacts.  Inadequate funding coupled  with increased demand for service has forced both the Gibsons Library and Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum to reduce their  hours.  The library board issued a  statement Thursday detailing ils  operating ills, citing a dramatic  increase in library use, problems associated with providing  the expanded range of services  now offered, and lack of space  as the chief reasons opening  hours are being cut from 30  hours a week to 20 hours a  week.  Library membership and circulation have increased 48 per  cenl, twice the rate of population growth on the Coast, the  board says, but library space is  only one-third of minimum  approved standards and staff  work space is one-quarter of  minimum approved space.  "It is both unfortunate and  ironic that it is necessary to  reduce our hours in Ihe face of  increases in the public's use of  library services," said board  chairman Vern Giesbrecht.  "The obvious solution would be  to add to the library support  staff, but our present budget is  stretched to the limit."  Giesbrecht warned it may be  necessary to make further  reductions in service, such as  reduce book purchases and  memberships, if growth in  library use continues apace.  The library will now be open  from 9:30 pm lo 2:30 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday;  2:30 pm lo 7:30 pm Thursday.  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum manager Lola Westell told  Gibsons council Tuesday lhat a  reduction in hours will also  lake effect al the museum  because of inadequate funding.  "We haven't been able to gel  any core funding and there's a  distinct lack of volunteers."  Meanwhile, "the number of  people coming through the  museum is tremendous," Westell said, noting that the number  of visits usually remains strong  through the end of Septembet  until the tourist season begins  to wind down. "Having lo turri  people away breaks my heart,'  Westell said.  Councillors expressed surprise at the shortage of volunteers, especially in a community with a significant populatior  of retired people. Westell  explained that the museuir  hires a summer student eacl  year with the help of a government grant, but said funding  has now been used up. She  noted it takes about two weeks  to train volunteers.  The museum will now open  only on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Reef Society eyes local site for 367-foot destroyer  from the military for $1, sits expensively moored in Vancouver, the question  facing the Artificial Reef Society of  British Columbia now is where lo put  her.  And while a conflict with the Islands  Trust has broken out over a scheduled  site near Nanaimo, a location on the  Sunshine Coast is being considered as  another possibility.  Members of the reef society arrive  on the Coast on Wednesday to look at  potential sites for the destroyer in  lliitham Sound and Sechelt Inlet - much  to the delight of local diving businesses  and enthusiasts.  So far, the reef society has given  Nanaimo two week- to sort out its problems with the Is' nds Trust before  offering the Chaudi.-iv to other communities.  If the Nanaimci site falls through,  sites in Sechelt Inlet stand a good  chance of approval says local reef soci  ety member Ken Burton, "assuming we  can get the political and financial backing of the community."  A similar artificial reef already sunk  at a site near Sidney brings in an estimated $1 million tourist dollars a year.  Previously, says Burton, concerns  about sinking the Chaudiere centred  around potential environmental impact.  In the last year, however, volunteers  have spent over 7,000 hours to strip the  vessel. All hazards to divers and marine  life have been removed, says Burton,  including oil. fuel, wiring and insulation. New passage ways have been cut  in Ihe ship, while other rooms have  been welded shut to minimize danger.  In fact, these days most controversy  surrounding the artificial reef stems  instead from fears it will be loo successful.  Several attempts to find a site for the  ship near Gabrioia Island ha.e met with  opposition from residents over concern  the increased boat traffic to the reef  would harm quality of life and create  conflict with other uses such as fishing  and other boat navigation.  turn to page 3  Bob Wiley extends himself to mount handmade wreaths just prior to the opening or the fifth  annual Summer Arts and (rafts Fair at Sechelt's Hacked Park. About 4,000 people passed  through the park the Saturday before last, enjoying themselves and partaking in a multitude of  booths and craH displays. Joel John-tone pholo  Porpoise Bay,  council dust up  still unsettled  by Stuart Burnside  Residents of an East Porpoise Bay subdivision say they  are lired of dealing wilh dust  caused by industrial use of an  unpaved municipal road in their  area and they want Sechelt  council to do something aboul  it.  All 29 home owners of Ihe  Porpoise Properties  subdivision signed a  petition calling on  council to pave the  intersection of Burnet and East Porpoise Bay Roads.  They say the paving  would reduce dust  created  by  truck  traffic to and from        Central Grading and  Gravel (COG) and Swanson's  Ready Mix, two businesses  localed on Burnet Road across  from the subdivision.  Resident spokesman John  Burns, speaking at Wednesday's council meeting, called  the dust a "nuisance ... ll has  had a serious effect upon property values and the ability to  attract buyers for property now  for sale."  He said his group has been  trying for five years to have  something done about the problem and the condition of East  Porpoise Bay Road in general.  "Every year we're told 'il will  be in nexl year's budget',"  Burns said, "but 'next year'  never comes."  Mayor Nancy MacLarty  agreed Ihere was a problem but  could offer no immediate solutions.  "I know there's an ongoing  problem with the dust," she  said, "and I'll try my level best  to do something about it."  In addition to paving Ihe  Burnet intersection, ihe residents called on council to blacktop ihe rest of Burnet to provide  access to municipal park land  located at the end of it.  Burns pointed lo Ocean  Avenue in Sechell proper, saying it was a street with few  trucks and slower traffic than  Burnet yet it has been scheduled  'Every year  we're told it  will be in next  year's budget'  ���lohn Hunts  for paving after area residents  complained aboul dust. He  noted that one of the main arguments for paving Ocean was  that it provided access to a  municipal park.  "That's why I brought up  Ihe park land (located) at the  end of Burnet," Burns told the  Coast News, "to draw the similarities between the  Iwo areas."  Burns said not  only is access to Ihe  Burnet park land  unpaved, but public  use of the road is  controlled and  restricted by CGG  through the use of      an "illegal" gale.  He noted lhat  only a municipal bylaw can halt  public access to a municipal  road and no such bylaw had  been passed for Burnel.  Mayor Nancy MacLarty  acknowledged Ihe road was  controlled by CGG, as it is the  entrance to their gravel operation, but said Burnet Road  "went nowhere" and had never  maintained by the municipality.  She said the municipal park  Burns mentioned on Burnel was  land dedicated to the municipality as part of a subdivision slated for development up Burnet  Road, but remained, as yel,  "untouched" and unvisited  wilderness.  Burns said more people  might visit the area if there was  access.  He also said Sechelt's public  works crew had, in fact,  improved Bumet Road up to the  CGG entrance. He said CGG  now regularly graded that portion of the road.  Council referred the matter  to Ihe public works committee  (PWC).  Councillor Rosina Giles  noted thai Ihe subdivision proposal from which the park land  dedication resulted, was scheduled for development next year.  Al that time, she said. Ihe  developers would be required to  see Burnet road paved, including the intersection.  Directors oppose mill water licences  by Jane Seyd  An application from Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper for additional water licenses on  McNair Creek and a lake in the Chapman  watershed are being vigorously opposed by  the regional district.  The pulp mill applied for the licenses to  supplement the mill's regular water supply  after the company's usual reservoir, which  drains into the Rainy River, began lo run low  after dry weather conditions in the early pan  of the summer.  But regional directors at Thursday's public utilities committee meeting said they  didn't like the idea of diverting parts of the  domestic watershed to industrial usage.  The regional district's comments have  been sought from the Ministry of Environment as part of an approval process for the  licenses.  "I strongly object," said Roberts Creek  director Brett McGillivray. "That watershed  serves a major portion of the Sunshine  Coast."  "It's part of our watershed reserve," said  West Howe Sound director Jeremy Frith.  "You'd think that means something...The  public's need is far greater than the industrial  in the long term."  Directors were also concerned the applications did not specify that the water licenses  would be temporary.  Last week, the mill's technical services  manager, Ron Wilson, said the licenses were  meant to tide the company over a critical  period in September before the Fall rains  refill the usual reservoir. A similar license  was granted to the mill on McNair Creek  during the mid 1980s during another dry  period.  But directors said there are other water  sources not included in the domestic watershed the mill should examine.  Public utilities chairman Jim Gumey said  he would invite representatives from the  pulp mill to meet with directors to explain  the reasons for opposing the applications and  "so they understand very clearly Chapman/Gray Creek and McNair are out of  bounds."  inside  comnunHf page $  armorials    paga 4  Maun      paga 11  Mien      paga t  rmbwhan  page 11  son nam page 19  Mfttr      paga S Coast News, August 24, 1992  PENINSULA CENTRE NOP CLUB  NOTICF OF fiFNFRAL MEETING  August 30,1992  at Greene Court Hall, Sechelt  (Immediately following Constituency Meeiing)  Business: Selection of Delegates  to Provincial Convention  <Dr. "Waiter 'Burtniai  WISHES TO ANNOUNCE THE  RELOCATION OF HIS PRACTICE  TO HIS NEW OFFICE  AT  5555 SUNSHINE COAST HIGHWAY  OPENING SEPT 1st 1992  FOR APPOINTMENTS CALL  885-2384  ACROSS FROM ST MARY'S HOSPITAL IN WE HOUSE Of HEWHIWUS  o, Taraaai Swumi .

That hasn't complelely allayed worries of some regional directors,  though, who emphasized recently thai appropriate measures to deal  wilh increased traffic, parking, washroom use and potential conflicts  with boaters musl be in place tiefore the project is endorsed by the  regional district.  Another local requirement lo get the artificial reef to go ahead is  money - approximately $30,000 of il, in fact, for moorage and towing  from Vancouver to the appropriate location.  Originally, says Burton, the reef society had counted on receiving  a provincial GO BC grant to finish ihe project, but since the program  has been cancelled, that's been thrown into limbo.  I'nlike other projects, the Chaudiere can't wait for other funding  sources lo be announced, says Burton, because moorage fees in Vancouver are increasing.  Now that's it's ready for sinking, the threat of Fall weather also  presents a serious problem.  Says Hill Brooks, another local reef society member: "As fall  comes on a boal designed lo sink isn't something a towboat operator  wants to touch."  Artificial Reef Society or BC director Jay Stralth, shown here  explaining the sinking of the CB. Church, gave interested  Sunshine Coast parties a presentation In February. file photo  If a location for sinking is found, the Chaudiere would become the  largest artificial reef on the west coasl of North America. Several artificial reefs exist on the east coast or Ihe United States, especially near  Florida, where they provide a protected habitat for fish. "They're  very common worldwide," says Burton.  New training for Pender ambulance crew  Roxanne Gregory  Dennis Gamble, unit chief of  the Madiera Park Ambulance  Station, is proud of his crew.  "We are on call 24 hour a day  for Ihe people in Ihis area, liven  where we are already out on a  call, ihe area still has ambulance  service coverage as a car from  Sechell will standby for us near  Halfmoon Bay."  Gamble is stung by criticism  from some professionals who  recently alleged that the  Madeira Park ambulance crew is  inadequately trained and late in  responding to local calls.  "To my knowledge, we have  never taken 45 minutes to  respond to a call," Gamble said  in an interview. "Geographically  we have a lol of territory to  cover and our response times to  Egmont and Garden Bay are  longer, but the ambulance service has never received any  complaints related to response  times from Ihis station. We are  NOT volunteers. We are trained,  glbsons council notes  licensed and paid professionals."  According to Brian Porritt,  emergency heallh  services  superintendent, all Madiera Park  crew members are  licensed as emergency     medical  assistant I. Crew  members undergo  60 hours of in-  classroom training  with an additional       82 hours outside  the classroom and all must have  an Industrial First Aid Attendant's Certificate which is an  additional 70 hours of training.  Said Gamble, "People look al  the ambulance number in their  phone books and because it is  88.1-5191 they automatically  think they will have to wait for a  car from Sechelt. That just isn't  true. The 885 number connects  them directly with emergency  heallh services provincial dispatch., If they are in the Pender  We hope to  begin training  this September'  Brian Porritt  Madeira Park ambulance is the  one that will be dispatched."  Porritt confirms there have  been no complaints about  response limes in the Pender       Harbour area. He  admitted there may  be some confusion  by the public with  the Sechelt listing  in the phone book  for the ambulance  service. "People  need to know that  the 885 number leads to central  dispatch. They will get the closest car available."  Porritt identified Madeira  Park as one of 132 communities  province-wide which will benefit from emergency health services new provincial training  program. "The provincial advisory training committee has  developed iwo formats for the  training of emergency medical  assistant ll's. One is a six week  intensive training program at the  Harbour area or north of it, the      Justice Institute, which includes  in-hospital practicums. The  other has a modular design and  would take six months of part  time studies to compiele. Bolh  formats cover the same materials."  There will be a local competition between qualified crew  members for participation in the  training program. "We hope to  begin training this September,"  Porritt said. "The program is  structured so lhal within a two-  year period all of Ihe identified  communities will have ambulance crew members who have  received this advanced level of  training."  Porritt suggested that the  money isn't yet available to provide the Madeira Park ambulance with a portable cardiac  defibrillation unit. "Ideally we'd  like to see Ihem on every car  across ihe province, but the  money just isn't Ihere right now.  However, it is a possibility for  Madeira Park within the next  year or two."  i  Council gave its approval in principle to  the forthcoming filming, in Gibsons of Needful Things, a horror film based on a story by  Stephen King.  Mayor Eric Small expressed concern lhat  Ihe production crew "be very respectful" of  Pioneer cemetery, where a facade of the  'Needful Store' will be erected. Molly's  Reach will be the focal point of shooting,  becoming 'Dot's Cafe', a church facade will  be constructed over the chamber's tourist  information centre, and a church steeple  erected on Ihe museum building.  Filming is expected to begin in mid-October and run through to the third week in  November.  Siltatlon report  Build up of siltation at the mouth of Gibsons harbour is unlikely to be the cause of  higher coliform counts that resulted in  bathing restrictions this year.  An investigation into tidal flushing in the  harbour by Public Works Canada reported  that there are five outlets between the harbour basin and Howe Sound. "Thus, the  potential closure of one of the outlets, in ihis  case by siltation, would not significantly  affect the tidal flushing of Gibsons harbour,"  said senior coastal engineer Bruce Dean in a  recent letter to council.  Dean said sources of pollutants within Ihe  harbour are the most important factor to con  sider. The correspondence has been referred  for comment to Ihe health ministry, which ii  monitoring harbour waler quality.  Bylaw patrol  Gibsons is seeking RCMP assistance in  attending to concern about dangerous operation of jet-skis in the harbour.  However, an officer from the RCMP  patrol vessel Regina, responsible for this  section of Coast, told council Ihere is little  police can do without appropriate bylaws.  Cst. Clough said the harbour master has the  authority to ban jet-skis or designate specific  areas for their operation. "If some bylaws  are put in place, we'd certainly enforce  them."  GREAT PACIFIC MANAGEiMENT  is proud to present  an exciting real estate investment  in Dallas, Texas  BRIARCREST TOWNHOMES  Luxury two bedroom townhomes  for as little as $39,900 U.S.  There will be an information meeting  held at  THE DRIFTWOOD INN  Trail Ave., Sechelt  Wednesday, August 26th 7,tOO pm  Special guest speaker Kevin England  of England Securities will be present  to discuss how to build a portfolio of  income producing real estate properties.

Sechelt resident Bob Mihlor spoke at last Wednesday's council  meeting saying the section of unpaved road was falling into disrepair  through over use by the public without corresponding municipal  maintenance.  The road, while in Sechelt's jurisdiction, is the only public access  to the Tetrahedron Wilderness area and is "heavily advertised" as a  tourist destination.  "It looked like the SCRD was going to maintain it (before Sechelt  expansion)," Mihlor said, "but since Sechelt has taken over nothing  has happened.  Sechelt council motioned lo bring the matter up with the SCRD at  the next regional public utilities meeting.  MEMBERSHIP IN  ST.

Wright  Secretary to the Board Coast News, August 24, 1992  Milly Worrall  and friends  Joined together  in a sing-along  at Kirkland  Centre last  week.  Joel Johnstone  photo  Seniors thrive at Kirkland care centre  by Darah Hansen  Everyone needs a place lo  call Iheir own and lhat is just  whal the Kirkland Cenlre is for.  "I love it. It's a place they  come and it's theirs," said Mary  Puchalski, Service Manager.  The Centre is the home of  Ihe Adull Day Care service  offered by Ihe Sunshine Coasl  Home Support Society  (SCHSS) and funded by the  Long Term Care division of Ihe  Ministry of Health. Participants  are elderly and disabled adults  who are authorized by Long  Term Care lo attend.  The centre offers a structured program designed lo meel  the social and heallh care needs  of its participants. The program  also serves as a respite for caregivers who need some time  alone.  It is professionally staffed  and includes program workers;-  a registered' nurse a'hd' a  cook/prograrn worker. Acol-  lege student is also available for  the duration of the summer lo  visit each participant at home.  The list of activities is long  and varied. There are sing-  alongs with local musicians,  poetry readings, gardening,  walks, outings for lunch and  games such as horseshoes,  scrabble and bingo. If it's solitude that is required, the Cenlre  also offers a chance lo have a  quiet cup of tea with friends.  The program is "client  directed and focused," said  Puchalski, "they're the ones  who lell us whal they want."  Guest speakers are also  invited lo the Centre. Doctors,  nurses, police officers and local  politicians have all come lo  give talks on pertinent senior's  issues such as proper care and  nutrition and protecting your  home and self against crime.  Gibsons' mayor F.ric Small,  visiting his mother-in-law  Winifred Elders during Ihe  annual Family Garden Party  (Aug. 20), volunteered lo be  next on the list of speakers.  "I enjoy pretty nearly everything," said 88-year-old Caro  line Coppin. Coppin said she  came to the centre three years  ago in order lo meet people and  has since grown to love it.  "I was really tired this morning and didn't really feel like  getting up, bul 1 couldn't miss  this," Coppin said.  "I come because it's something lo do," said 83-year-old  Albert Siemens who has been  al the cenlre on and off for two  years. "I hale to do nothing."  Clients are authorized by  Long Term Care to come once  or twice a week , said Puchalski. The Centre is open - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday  from 9 am to 4 pm.  "I think it really gives Ihem  a lift," said programmer/cook  Alana Wood. "I just hope this  kind of thing will be around  when I need it."  For more information  regarding the program or its  qualifications contact the  SCHSS at 885-5144 or the  Long Term Care office at 885-  5164.  Caring for those who give care  If you are sick, someone can help you. Mental,  physical or emotional - Ihere are caregivers oul  there. But who helps those who help others?  Who cares aboul Ihe caregivers?  'Who cares Who cares', that's who.  The program is new, brought to the Coast by  the Silhshine' Co'asl"��r��fhe,Su{)ryrtrt''|i'-- In rtu bl  'Society.

"It grew out of the realization thai  there is little attention or thanks given  to those who give care," said executive director Martha Scales.    Many people find themselves in a  care-giving situation unexpectedly, said Scales, a  husband or mother can have a stroke or an accident. Or it could be a more gradual decline as  happens with Parkinson's disease or Alzheimer's.  Either way, Ihe caregiver is often filled wilh a  sense of loss, frustration, fatigue, sadness, guilt or  helplessness.  The end result can be the admission of the care  recipient into hospital because family members  simply can't cope, said Scales.  7 do a lot of  listening about  bow they feel'  -llarbant Kannegiesser  ment and preventive program, said Scales, it's  purpose is to prevent burn-out and promote the  wellness of caregivers.  Barbara Kannegiesser is the co-odinator of the  program. A social worker, her job is to help the  caregiver understand what he/she is facing  "'''' 'whether this be providing informa-   1    tiori about a certain illness or disability, direcling the caregiver to other  services or just listening.  "I'm the facilitator, not the expert.  I don't pretend to know what ihey are  going through... I do a lot of listening  aboul how they feel and I don't  judge," said Kannegiesser.  The program includes one-to-one  and group support and because the program is  flexible, "whatever they want will be addressed,"  said Kannegiesser. The current group meets every  Friday from I pm to 3 pm until mid-November.  More support groups will be formed should caregivers indicate the need.

It is a battle that has been fought strenuously before on  the Coast and in many other HC communities where  domestic water supply has felt threats ranging from pesticide pollution, stemming from inappropriate forest management practices in watersheds, to potential disruption  of supplies from logging or construction of such Ihings  as the natural gas pipeline.  It is a battle that will continue until regulations are  changed.  Absence of consultation lies at (he root of the conflicts. With their very health at stake, residents aa* passionately concerned aboul the quality of their drinking  water and are being forced to take desperate measures to  protect il. Thai's because waterboards which oversee distribution in rural areas have yet to be granted proper consideration during Ihe planning process,  The Waugh lake incident could have been avoided if  earlier notification had been given. All parties - the  walerboard, logging company and forest ministry - subsequently showed they were willing to negotiate. But  such discussions should be going on in the planning  stages, not hastily reached amid an atmosphere of confrontation out in the woods.  There have been countless other incidents where a  small group of residents dependent on a local watershed  have had to rear up on their hind legs and fight for concessions that ought to be rights.  The threat to water supplies is equally apparent in  more urban locales, where wells and aquifers are feeling  the pressure from rapid development dependent on  groundwater supplies. Developers have in some cases  circumvented the more stringent environment ministry  regulations by phasing big projects and obtaining  approvals under weaker health ministry rules.  With a growing coastal population, the potential for  conflict is only going to grow. The government should  plug a few legislative loopholes and beef up waterboard  powers to give residents the protection to which they're  entitled.  Museum blues  We have previously praised the commitment and  involvement of the many people who volunteer their time  to numerous worthwhile causes on the Sunshine Coast.  So it comes as a surprise to find that one of Gibsons'  chief tourist attractions is having to drastically reduce  hours because of the lack of volunteers. It is the reality  in most small communities that the gathering of artifacts  and operation of heritage parks or museums rests on the  enthusiasm of local historical societies, aided by whatever funding sources they can muster.  The Elphinstone museum has been enjoying a busy  season, offering thousands of visitors a window on the  world of Coast past - a service that should be available  seven days a week during the summer. Alas, we now see  opening hours reduced to two days a week.  opinion  Human philosophy  rules on Coast  A word of philosphy - four  years ago I moved to the Sunshine Coast to write a philosophy thesis. I couldn't seem to  write it at the university  (McMaster in Hamilton). As an  "institution of higher learning,"  it stood for exactly the philosophy of life I wanted to find an  alternative to.  That is, it represented an  objective, technical, spiritually  bankrupt style of dehumanized  relationship with each other and  the world. To make matters  worse, I couldn't put my feelings into words (a serious setback for any aspiring western  philosopher). Moving to the  Sunshine Coast was the best  thing I could have done. I found  a whole community of people  whose ideals and way of life  were based on the kind of philosophy I was looking for.  This philosophy recognizes  all humanity's profound relationship with each other and the  world. It is a philosophy of true  human relationship embracing  all of life and the planet.  The distinction between living spiritual and dead objective  being in the world is especially  apparent in the political and  legal structures of western society. The established system is  based on huge bureaucracies set  up around a dehumanized structure of objective rules. On the  other hand, associated with the  living philosophy of human  relationship, there is what has  been called 'legal integrity' or  'holistic law.' This method proceeds not according to dogmatic  rule enforcement but flexibily  according to the kind of community we want to build.  The SCRD displays Ihis orientation, for example, around  the Inner Ear Coffee House.  Although technically illegal  because it is not a specified Ian  duse in the zoning bylaw, the  coffee house is consistent with  the vision of the Roberts Creek  Settlement Plan and almost  unanimously supported by the  citizens of Robeits Creek.  It is this criteria, rather than  the strict letter of the law, on  which the SCRD proceeds  (although they are constrained  by a myriad of rules). In the  context of an objective, posi-  tivistic system this may seem  like an inconsistent application  of law, but in the holistic system  of integrity such a procedure is  not only culturally supportive  but consistent in a farther  reaching sense.  I'm proud to be part of this  cultural tradition and want to  express appreciation to the  friends, workers and community  leaders on the Sunshine Coast  who help bring this philosophy  alive.  May the trend towards more  truly human relationships on all  levels continue.

V0N3A0  Protection of water  paramount  As a small child I learned a  valuable lesson about pure,  clean water. At the age of 10,  one summer while visiting a  friend at Port Hammond, BC,  we drank from the Fraser River.  People living along the dike all  used Ihe untreated water from  the Fraser in those days.  Several of us caught Typhoid  Fever including myself. Health  authorities traced die carrier to a  mill upstream from where we  drank.  My parents lectured us on  how "water was precious, how  all life depended on it being  clean and pure, and must be religiously respected."  It still shocks me lo hear how  humans pollute, contaminate,  and defecate in their drinking  water while dumping dioxins,  furans, defoliants and pesticides  into lakes and rivers.  Here on the Sunshine Coast,  with our limited snow pack and  increasing population, the time  is pasl due to put a moratorium  on all fresh water, for in Ihe  future we will surely use every  lake and stream as a water  source. The protection of our  water resource should be our  number one priority.  P.C. NICHOLSON  Sechelt  Wheels of history, recessions and the coast revival  Duncan MacDonell, in his Ebbtide column  August 10, says, "Life used to be spread out a lot  more around here!" How right he is.  When my logging career began on the coast in  1935, it was still possible to do a little pioneering.  A sawdust hauling buddy of mine through some of  the depression years was an ex-logger, and was  yearning to get out of the city and back into fighting out the round sniff. He asked me to join him in  a new venture over on Vancouver Island at the  Cowichan Station near Duncan.  His old log broker still held the remains of a  timber sale at Kinsol Siding on the E & N Railway,  where a sawmill had burned down a few years  before and the Forest Service was bugging him to  clean it up. The broker offered to stake us for a  sort, and as peeler fir logs had taken a jump to $8  per thousand, the market was picking up.  We finished that claim that fall, and moved up  to another clean-up job near Ladysmith on Cecil  Mountain. We were snowed out of there in  November, so Percy Brown, a 40-year-old native  who worked for us, turned out to be a veteran  cougar hunter. So we put in the winter chasing  panthers for the $20 bounty. We collected four  hides and two kittens that winter, and along with  four days a month of relief work at $2 per day, we  kept the wolf away from our doors. We weren't  too worried, because there was a bounty on wolves  also.  Between, deer meat, spuds and the Overwaitea  store in Nanaimo, we put in a pretty good Christmas and survived until spring.  My years in the woods were the best of my life.  As die depression eased into better markets, then  the war years, we saw many changes in the forest  bays and  inlets  carl chrlsmas  industry. A gyppo could pick up a little timber  sale, and with some tired iron, get out a boom of  logs now and then. If he was lucky enough to  establish say production of a million FBM average  per year, that eventually became his quota in the  eyes of the Forest Service.  After a few years, many of tbe quota holders  discovered that they could sell their worn out  equipment for $10,000 a million, and in most  cases, that was the most money any of them  glommed onto in one lump. They took it and ran.  As quota's became scarce, they went to as high  as $50,000 a million, and they were really in the  chips. Not too many yean later, tbe bigger outfits  and corporations owned most of tbe quota, so then  along came the Tree Farm License system. That  really tied up the coast, and many of the little communities with stores and post offices began to fold  up and die. Many old log dumps where the tired  iron had been left to mst, began to grow over, and  tbe healer alder trees hid tbe scars. To an old logger, there is nothing sadder than to wander through  an abandoned logging camp. How they can stir the  memories!  In later years when I bought my first airplane  and sold equipment to the many contractor's left  over from the gyppo days, I would land in a deserted bay and eat my lunch sitting on a brow log I had  dumped logs over years before. The occasional  seagull would land for a crust, but a loud squawk  was the only answer to my comments. Even a  feeding otter was too busy to stick around for my  sad reminiscences. I watched the coast die a bay  and an inlet at a time.  A few years ago my hopes for a rebirth of the  coast began to rise when the fish farm gold rush hit  our neck of the woods and began to spread into the  same bays and inlets that had been populated by  small logging outfits. Farm sites required the same  characteristics as the loggers needed: protected  bays and inlets; a good supply of domestic water;  tie-ups for boats and airplanes.  Fish farms were shaping up to be nice Ma/Pa  and family operations, which began to get the  young entrepreneur's out of tbe cities and back to  the coast. The growing family would take over  from old Dad, and the coast would begin to live  again!  But it was not to be. Tbe boom and bust cycle  took over, history began to repeat itself, and the  crunch was on. Markets became flooded with fish;  prices dropped below the cost of feeding fish; then  Hirohito, Emperor of Japan.died. The Japanese  market was closed for one year as sushi bars and  all forms of celebration were put on hold.  A Norwegian bank supplying funds to Canadian  banks to finance farms.went into receivership. The  receiver called all notes outstanding with Canadian  banks, and in the course of a week or 10 days in  the Sunshine Coast area, 13 farms went down the  tube. Sound familiar?  Many farms were bought by packers and cautious investors for 10 cents on the dollar, and  entrepreneur's lost homes and family assets. Many  farms in Sechelt Inlet closed or were moved North,  taking jobs with them. The boom initiated by  E.D.C. Commissioner Odvin Vedo several years  ago, which stimulated the local economy and  labour market at the time, is gone.  Duncan MacDonell asks, "Can we hope to see a  widespread resettlement of the coast in the near  future?" He thinks not  But do I sense a change of thinking in government and corporate circles? Is pressure being  brought to bear by a disenchanted public to change  the Tree Farm licensing system, and are the corporations not beginning to think it is time to abandon  the responsibilities of what the system is forcing  on them as forest show signs of depletion?  As large businesses go under, managers and  technicians over-qualified on today's employment  market to find another job are finding they have to  return to old skills and create jobs for themselves  in cottage industries. This is a good sign, and if die  forest industry goes back to allowing smaller operators into Timber Supply Areas, we might come  full circle once again  Don't turn those bays and inlets over to the  condo and highrise developers yet.. We may need  them for prime contractors and gyppos alike, to  supply tne fibre for pulp mills and saw logs for  saw mills.  My life would be complete if I could once more  touch down in a bay or inlet, see an operating  camp and boomed up logs, and tie up to die cook-  bouse for a saucer of cold bacon and a hot cup of  coffee!

It was  in a right sort of a place, on  Yonge Street, just north of  Bloor, at the end of Yorkville,  then the national centre of hip-  piedom.  It was the top Iwo floors of  an old three-storey house which  had these days a small art  gallery al street level. The upper  floors had not been used in  years, but there was a fireplace,  a (potential) sundeck, three bedrooms and a skylight.  The three who looked it over  had none of them any prior  experience of house renovation,  no slightest previous interest in  fact. Al least one of ihem may  very well have never so much as  lifted a hammer. They were all  in Ihe writing business.  Silently Ihey conquered their  initial dismay. Dust hung on  cobwebs like wreaths of fog  over the Bay of Fundy. Rubble  crunched underfoot and Brian,  an ex-army man, was reminded  of shelled houses in Salerno.  Tommy, ex-navy, lit his pipe,  assumed the air of someone on a  bridge, said the floors seemed  sound enough. Bill, ex-air force,  held his council, started counting up whal il was going to cost.  Someone else was going to  clean this up for a start.  They crunched off through  the place. There was a part wall  at the end of the living room  which hid the staircase. They  would tear down Ihe wall and  expose the stairs, they decided.  And paint them white said  Tommy. Black, said Brian. That  blue they have at Fletcher's Pub,  said Bill.  Realizing that this was no  lime to discuss decor, they went  on up, pausing to look back at  the living room, each silently  seeing it as it might be. Bill  thought a chocolate brown ceiling, white walls with brilliant  prints and a grey broadloom, but  peeking at his friends he supposed that purple, a current decorating colour, was probably  being projected there.  We'll need a sideboard said  Tommy. Or we could make a  small bar, said Brian. Down  near the kitchen? How're we  going to stock it? said Bill. Are  we going to sign chits? They  went on up.  The bedrooms were all of a  good size, useable also as working rooms. There was one bigger than the other two, and each  of them started figuring what  furniture he'd need for il. The  skylight was above Ihe landing  and with the doors open gave  lighl to all.  At this time of course, grimy  almost beyond belief, it gave no  light at all. The sundeck was the  roof of a projecting part of Ihe  downstairs and would remain,  Ihey thought, for this time  potential. Still, it allowed fleeting thoughts of raffia tables with  letters  long drinks and deck chairs and  who knows whal.  In the pub and the club, word  got out that out-of-works could  pick up a little change doing a  bit of the old Herculean. The  outside windows were scoured  from perilous ladders by an Irish  soundman hopeful of gelling  into TV in Toronto.  Inside our heroes intended to  be themselves active, with a little help from here and there; bul  Brian had written a play, then in  rehearsal, and simply hadn't the  time. Bill, less validly perhaps,  had fallen in love and this took  up a lot of his lime.  Tommy, however, was teaching writing at Lome Green's  Radio Academy and when the  other two would get around  often they would find little  groups of Tommy's hopeful students operating floor polishers,  washing windows, hammering  away at something or other  upstairs and so forth. Tommy,  puffing his pipe, maintained the  air of someone on a bridge.  Just how the decor question  got sorted oul possibly none of  Elander memorial  planned  Many of us were saddened to  read of Ihe death of George  Elander. He was a greal part of  the history of the area - his farm,  the jam factory, etc.  We have all heard his many  stories and enjoyed discussions  with him. There will be a small  gathering at Andy's Restaurant  on Tuesday, Aug. 25 al 1:30 pm  and it is hoped his friends will  be there. t��    '���'  LILIAN KUNSTLER  Gibsons  Community  support  overwhelming  , These words of thanks are for  all Ihe thoughtful people of the  .Sunshine Coast who have  .shown their concern.

If you find that after you  have paid said price to the seller, the contract is final, legal  and binding.  If you find discrepancies  about the item that you weren't  aware of and don't care for after  you have made this binding  sale, then too bad - it is up to the  buyer to beware.  This saying is being thrown  out the window as far as real  estate sales apply. Recently in a  local court battle between two  Roberts Creek residents, a dispute arose over whether or not  the seller held back information  regarding the woodslove and  chimney unit. It was decided  lhal no, they didn't intentionally, bul still had lo compensate  the buyers for a portion of Iheir  expenses to replace the unit.  House buyers, if you don'l  understand how a house functions, i.e. gas, electric heaters or  woodslove; generator, solar or  even waterwheels run homes in  the Creek. Especially if you are  new to the area and are unfamiliar with unconventional systems, learn about them before  you purchase. A woodslove, for  example, takes a fair amount of  time and understanding to be  able to use properly; don't move  into your new home if you are  running on batteries, generators,  etc., and don't have a clue how  they operate, how much they  cost to run and how efficient  they are.  Community services elects  new directors to board  The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society is pleased  to announce that the following  volunteers have been elected to  the board of directors: Holly  Lehmann, president; Carol  Stewart, vice-president; Francis  Konopasek, executive member  at large; Sylvia Blackwell;  Frank Brown; Dr. Charles Gregory; Bula Hess; Steve Hodgson; Holly Krangle; Andrew  Steele.

When I met Pierre Burton  and Peler Gzowski I was initially tongue-  tied. Bul Ihey were remarkably patient when  I began babbling and, after a few moments,  they made their exits gracefully. My only  hope is that they have become used to  encountering normally sane people who turn  inio babbling idiots when introduced.  The conjunction of the Festival of the  Written Arts and the Arts Council Summer  Craft Faire was a happy one.  Bolh were highly successful and the  crowds visiting were enjoying themselves at  each location. It seemed thai al least half the  Sunshine Coast was involved in one or the  other, or both. Our communily can take  pride in its spirit and willingness to participate not only in the high profile volunteer  areas but also in the thousand and one tasks  from grounds set-up and clean-up to kitchen  work.

Gosh, has a lol of waler passed under the  bridge since then - some familiar faces are gone, situations are altered  and numerous changes made, hopefully for the best.  Dead seal  A flurry of phone calls prompted me lo go down to the beach to  view Ihe carcass of a large dead seal thai has been lying ihere for  some Iwo weeks, scant yards from where small children play in the  sand and water. It apparently washes in and out with the tide and to  date, despite numerous phone calls to various departments from anxious residents, nothing has been done. I am told the slench is unbearable, particularly in Ihe heat of Ihe day. When we viewed it, it was  covered with bugs and flies - can't be a healthy situation.  Blocked trail  As long as mosi of us can remember, there has been a trail through  the lol directly behind the store in Davis Bay. This enabled people,  particularly small children, to have a means of getting to the store,  the drive-in and the wharf without having to traverse the highway.  Some thoughtless clod has seen fit to block Ihis access with branches  and debris - e'est la vie! (This must be the week for people's pel  peeves -1 just report them.)  On a happy note - a very warm welcome home lo Elsie Campbell  who has been away for two months. We are all so glad to see you  hack among us.

They are the result of months of  preparation and hundreds of volunteer hours. The Rockwood  Centre was a hive of activity for  four straight days with a wealth  of interesting people mingling  and getting lo know each other.  In all, it was an exciling weekend.  The big event in Halfmoon  Bay was the Farewell lo Nikki  and Floyd politick dinner al  Coopers Green last Sunday.  Considering ihere were lots of  people who would have liked to  have been there bul who had  already planned lo go lo the  Vancouver Symphony concert,  Ihere was a nice group of friends  gathered for the occasion.  Lots of linle children and  teenagers whose adoration of  Nikki was plain lo see. Likewise, the older friends were  there in force lo add their good  wishes.  It was a mixture of laughter  and tears, happiness at all being  together and sadness al the  thought of how much we are  going to miss Nikki.  Following a delicious meal,  Elise Rudland (on behalf of  those present) presented Nikki  and Floyd with a CD player,  bringing a smile of delight from  Nikki.  The entertainment of the  evening was provided by some  of those who were coached by  Nikki throughout the years. The  original Halfmoon Hams, her  first group on Ihe Coasl, had,  unknown to Nikki, gol together  to perform a short medley of  some of Iheir old numbers, then  asked Nikki to join them on  Nikki Weber enjoys a good  laugh with friends before  cutting into her farewell  party cake.

After iheir term of office is  egmont news  completed, the replacements will be elected.  Travel scams  The most popular ploy right now involves  travel clubs. The unsuspecting consumer  usually gels a telephone call and is offered a  bargain priced holiday package that might  include return air transportation for one person and lodging for two people for a week to  such places as Hawaii, London or some other  popular and usually far-off destination. All  Ihe consumer has to do is to pay a club membership fee of from $50 lo $400.  The catch is lhal you musl purchase a  high-priced return ticket from the travel club  for the second person and you will probably  end up paying two to three times what it  would cosl if you had bought your own tick-  els in advance through an airline or travel  agency.  Seniors picnic  Royal weather prevailed for the seniors  picnic at east Porpoise Bay campground  Aug. 20. Tables groaned with lots of different dishes the membership brought. The  meeting was held lo greet members and  guests and play 'catch up' with information  concerning the Seniors Centre.  MC Bill Butler directed the bingo and  horseshoe activities. The cool air made us  realize that autumn is just around the comer.  Remember Ihe craft sale lo lake place Saturday, Oct. 24 at the new hall from 10 am lo  2 pm. Tables will renl for $10 each. There  will be a small admission fee with a draw on  a leddy bear. Please phone Pauline al 885-  5572 or Kay at 885-3334 to book a lable.  Crafts are still meeiing at 9:30 am on Thursday morning at Ihe hall.  by Lynn Mees  Egmonl Water Board had a meeiing the other night and the turnout  wasn't that big. The issue discussed was lowering the intake pipe inio  the lake to deeper, cooler waler, aboul 30 feel. Waugh Lake is a  watershed reserve and should be maintained as such as some locals  have argued.  The wake for Joshua and Nique was well celebrated. A great  turnout of friends to remember the two dogs. Lots of tasly foods  which they both loved and good homemade wines to toasl.  Walley has a new stone firepit, which was built by some local  stone masters. They've been busy all week hauling stones and sand to  his place. I'm looking forward to seeing it as there is a real art to laying stone.  Mid-August always brings back many childhood memories - the  wind, the air and savouring the last days before school starts.  We had a display of colours last week on the dock: J.D. was flying  his kite from a fishing pole - he was sky fishing again.  Everybody busy canning? What an abundant yield of all garden  goodies.

On a scale of one  to 10, these visitors to the Coast  ate currently giving us a rating  ofeight. Results are drawn from  comments supplied by over  2,000 visiting parties interviewed by Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce ambassadors at the  ferry terminals.  The last month shows a large  shift in accommodation choice.  From staying with friends to  using campgrounds, resorts and  motels. A significant increase in  real estate and business  inquiries is apparent. The chamber has now responded to over  100 requests for information  about slatting a business on the  Sunshine Coast.  The main destination points  during the past month have been  Madeira Park, followed by  Secrel Cove and Sechelt (Porpoise Bay Provincial Park) as  third choice. Heading the list of  main reasons for the trip are  fishing, boating, camping and  swimming. A large draw in  recent weeks was Sea Cavalcade and the Writer's Festival -  someone is reading the ads!  Although the bulk of Sunshine Coast visitors are still  from the Lower Mainland, there  was a marked increase in travellers from Italy, France, Germany and England. The number  of travellers from the US  remained constant.  The Sunshine Coast visitor  survey is sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Community Development team with the assistance  of the Ministries of Tourism and  Social Services. Final results  and reports will not be available  unlil the survey is completed in  December.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

A writer/poet to reckon with  by Peter Trower  Although it's hard to believe  that the Sechell Writer's Festival has been in business for 10  years, such is indeed Ihe case.  The Writer's Festival was  very much a tentative shoestring  operation in those early days.  There were plenty of skeptics  around who predicted that the  idea would never get off the  ground commercially or otherwise. Even Ihe most starry-eyed  optimist, however, could never  have predicted the roaring success it was destined lo enjoy. It  has grown steadily over the  years and this latest version was  definitely the biggest and best  yet.  Rockwood Lodge was bursting at the seams with people, the  majority of them unfamiliar to  me. There were familiar faces  too, of course, and a couple of  Ihem I was particularly happy to  see.  Patrick Lane and I go back a  long way. I first met him at a  publisher's conference in the  early '70s and we became  immediate friends. Both of us  came from blue-collar working  backgrounds, had put in a lot of  street time and were using these  experiences as material for poetry-  Lane soon moved up to Pender Harbour with his then-wife  and kids and we saw quite a bit  of each other. He wrote the  introduction for my second book  of poems and helped edit the  third. He also produced some of  his best poetry during those  years on the Sunshine Coast.  In the latter '70s, Lane's  marriage broke up and he followed his fortunes to the  Prairies. Here he met the  remarkable poet, Lorna Crozier,  the lady with whom he still  shares his life. Lane's poetry  continued to deepen and mature.  In 1979, his Poems, New and  Selected won the coveied Governor General's Award. The  G.G. awards are by no means  always handed to the most  deserving people, but in Lane's  case, the judges did noi err.  During Ihe '80s Pat and  Lorna spent most of Iheir time  in the east and we feli out of  touch. Recently, however, they  moved io Vancouver Island  where they intend to stay for an  indefinite period. I was delight-  Patrick Lane  ed to hear ihey were back in BC  and even more delighted lo  learn Ihey would bolh be reading al Ihe Festival.  I was able lo talk wiih  Patrick both before and after the  reading. Age and success have  definitely mellowed him. lie  seemed happier, less hyper than  in ihe old days, ll was good lo  see him again.  Lane was introduced by  another old friend, Edith Iglaucr  Daly. He commented wryly lhal  (his was the longest reading he  had ever been asked lo give (a  fact that might be borne in mind  by the Festival organizers). He  then proceeded Io prove lhal he  was more than capable of filling  the protracted lime slot.  For many years now, Pat  I-ane has been writing short stories in addition to poetry. He  confessed that il look him a long  time to master Ihis tricky form  but the two examples he read -  from his new book How Do  You Spell Beautiful? - indicate  that he has mastered it very  well. The stories - like many of  his poems - derive from the  bleak period when, trapped in a  forced marriage, he worked as a  first-aid man in various jerry  buill interior mill towns.  Crafted wilh Ihe same spare  skill as his poetry, Ihe prose  pieces reveal some of the less-  pleasant aspects of small-town  life in the '50s and '60s. They  are relentlessly honest, profoundly disturbing and quite  unforgettable.  After the stories, Lane  switched to poetry and read a  series of meditations from his  1990 collection Winier.

After the reading, Lane fielded some questions from the  audience. Local poel, John Pass,  bought up a criticism often  raised about Lane's work - lhat  he never writes anything humorous. Lane pleaded guilty to the  charge and admitted he had only  written one poem in his life lhat  could remotely be considered  funny.  Be thai as il may, Patrick  Lane is one hell of a poel and  now a pretty fine short slory  writer in addition. He deals wilh  the basic truths of life and he  seldom minces words. He has  the power to shock you lo the  core - and often does. But he  remains very much a writer to  reckon with. People in search of  laughs or light entertainment,  however, would be well advised  to look elsewhere.  (A final note: While I was  able to talk wilh Lorna Crozier -  whose work I also greatly  admire - I was unfortunately  compelled to miss her reading  due to another commitment. I  hereby apologize lo this charming and very talented lady. My  friend, Paul Murphy, Iclls me  she gave a marvellous reading  and received a well-earned  standing ovation.)  a*a*a_****Wa1la***a*****a*<ataia^^  ��� ��� mm.mm 111 ___���_ -_ a^== ____��� 111 ���____ ��� _  ] NEW ARRIVALS _  ��� Long & Short Sleeved Shirts __���  The three large  ghost-like figur  are inspired by  images found on a sandstone  cliff called "The Holy Ghost Wall"  These figures may be portrayals of a  living essence embodied in the earth.

Schroeder, a prolific writer  and poet who was raised a Mennonite, used his time at the  pavilion podium lo shed humorous light on a form of religious  worship which much of ihe  world looks upon with perplexity. Mennonile, Amish, Pennsylvania Dutch ... just some of the  names of a much misunderstood  and persecuted religion which  decries war and which unlil  recently has defied the fluctuating tide nf progress.  Schroeder said ihe Mennonile reluctance to change with Ihe  times is ingrained and stems  from strict interpretations of the  Bible. Since il is possible to  have more than one interpretation of the "Good Book", there  tends to be disagreements within  Ihe church.  He told of a conundrum suffered by the Mennonile church  in the 1940s when upstarts  began to acknowledge the  potential of machines, especially  tractors, for working the farm  (until then only horse-drawn  equipment was used). Old  school Mennoniles, however,  were adamant machines were  S & G TREE SERVICE  7-Ppfc-  I  Topping ��� Trimming 'Pruning * Brush Chipper  Danger Tree Removal  Bonded and Insured ��� 20 Years Experience  885-3897   O.W1 ��� S.ill Watei Licences JAgLj  Molel & Campsites * VV.iler T.ixi *���*���*' J    "'  M.iiinr koLi.iirs        ' In' and T.nklu 883-2261.

Whole new branches of  the church erupted which  allowed the use of machines,  ' while those that disagreed continued on without.  Disagreements within the  church don't rely solely on the  mechanization of urban life,  however. Schroeder says there  are branches of the church lo  cover almost every action or  deed people can do, depending  on biblical interpretation.  "There are branches of the Mennonite church that believe buttons (on clothing) represent spir  itual sloth." he said.  While Schroeder no longer  attends the Mennonite church  and apparently no longer proscribes to the faith, his love and  respect for Mennonite people,  their accomplishments and their  fortitude, is evident in everything he says on the subject.  He read lo his Festival audience from his latest collection of  short stories called The Eleventh  Commandment: Mennonite  tales captured from the oral tradition and translated from Low  German, the preferred tongue of  Western Canadian Mennoniles.  The stories reflect a pleasant,  simple people wilh a strong  sense of family and community.  And such is the impression one  gets about Schroeder himself.  He recalls warmly his experience as a boy growing up in a  Mennonite community. The  church couldn't sustain his  inquisitive mind, however, and  he developed, despite his family's efforts to shield him, a love  of literature. Eventually this  love led Schroeder oul the  church door and down a path  which meandered briefly  through Rockwood last week.  Chewing over a Worm Sandwich  by Darah Hansen  There are children who don't  like chocolate, go lo bed when  they're told and manage to stay  clean and neat all day, but not  the kids who like worm sandwiches.  Worm Sandwich is a book of  children's poems published by  Sono Nis in Victoria. The  whimsical poetry was written  by Linda Rogers, who vividly  connects with the fun and fanciful lives of kids.  There are kids who chew  gum to keep the monsters away,  hero kids who save dogs from  burning buildings and lonely  kids who eat chocolate and have  mice living in their hair.  Accompanying the poetry  perfectly are the illustrations by  Sunshine Coast artist Diana  Durrand. The full-page black  and white pen and wash drawings are so much fun Ihey bring  the storybook kids to life. They  have freckles, bright eyes,  messy hair and big smiles.  Durrand, who usually works  with watercolours, acrylics,  graphite and liquid plastic, said  lhat working in black and white  Melody Rigg is the worst sort of pig - a poem & drawing in Worm  Sandwich.  was a particular challenge. It  was difficult too to focus the  many images the colourful poetry produced.  "My work is fairly whimsical  but I've never pushed it that  far," Durrand said.  Worm Sandwich is Dur-  I liana Durrand artwork  rand's first children's work. Her  second collection of children's  illustrations can be found in the  full-colour Peanut Butter Waltz.  The original Worm Sandwich collection can be viewed  at Wilson Creek Gallery until  Sept. 7.

W.A. Fair  SUPERINTENDANT OF PUBLIC WORKS  5 YEARS AGO  Sechell Mayor Bud Koch  has protested to BC Premier  Bill Vander Zalm that a proposed gravel extraction project would desecrate Trail  Bay and ruin the town of  Sechelt. In a telephone interview with the Coast News  Koch said the alternative he  suggests would be the installation of a conveyor system  to run the gravel back to the  existing Porpoise Bay site  and then by barge through  Sechelt Inlet.  Alderman Ken Short  doesn't like the condition of  Sechelt Marsh. "I find this  place disgusting" he told  Sechelt council, "Sechelt  Marsh should be called  Sechelt Swamp."  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt council blasts  SCRD on office space and  overstaffing. Mayor Bud  Koch expresses strong diss-  approval at the board's decision to pay $60,000 per year  on office space and Alderman Ken Short says "I feel  strongly that the SCRD is  over-staffed."  Gibsons council introduces a bylaw to prohibit the  use of any gun, rifle, pistol,  fowling piece, shotgun, air or  pellet gun, sling-shot or bow  and arrows within village  boundaries.  15 YEARS AGO  A new feature along the  Sunshine Coast Highway  these days is the sunshine  kilometre markers. At present the markers mark off  every even numbered kilometre from Langdale the  entire length of (he Sunshine  Coast and are designed to  make it easier for tourist and  local people alike to locate  the various hospitality units  along the Coast.  25 YEARS AGO  Gibsons and Sechelt arc to  be linked by air with a daily  express air passenger and  freight service to Vancouver.  35 YEARS AGO  Building permits totalling  $5700 in value were granted  by Gibsons Village Commi-  sison Tuesday night. The  largest was for a $4000 one  storey laundry building  32x45 feet on property near  the fireball.  45 YEARS AGO  Gibsons - this village has  had the biggest day of its  existence on Saturday,  August 16. The occasion was  the opening of the new  wharf.  CHANNEL ELEVEN  Tuesday, Aug 25,7 pm  Three Square Miles...The End of the Old Growth Forest?

Last September 233 people  donated a total 216 units of  blood at the clinic. This year, the  Red Cross is hoping to top that.  Although it's been a while  since the last clinic, "We're hoping donors haven't forgotten we  still need the blood," said Grant  Lemke, a spokesman for the  donor program. "The early  September clinics are important  to help get our inventory back  up."  Most blood donors are people  who donate regularly, said  Lemke: "We depend on Ihem to  collect Ihe majority of our  blood." While regular donors  can continue to give blood until  their 71st birthday, "We need  younger donors to come in and  Going Away  on Vacation?  Your Secret's  Safe With Us  Leave your cares at home with us.  Pet/Animal Cave  Malt Clearing and Fonranling  Indoor Plant and Vard Maintenance  Regular Home Check or Live-In Service  C>\IL SUMON 885-2228  lake their place," said Lemke.  Most important for first-time  donors is overcoming initial  fears, said local coordinators  Shannon Stockwell and Patti  Kennedy. Actual blood collection only takes about 10 minutes, during which one unit of  blood (about 450 ml) is taken  per donor.  After the blood is collected, it  goes to the Red Cross laboratory  in Vancouver where it's  screened and tested, then distributed to about 90 hospitals in  British Columbia and the  Yukon.  The Red Cross estimates that  aboul 60 per cent of Canadians  require blood transfusions at  some point in their lifetime,  which can range from one unit  for an emergency trauma case lo  four units for a heart operation  and up to 300 units for a bone  marrow transplant.  Donors are asked to fill out a  questionnaire prior to blood collection and those in high risk  groups for AIDS/HIV are asked  not to donate. In addition, blood  is extensively screened and tested for HIV as well as syphilis,  hepatitis and leukemia.  In Canada, unlike the United  States, the Red Cross is exclusively responsible for blood  donation, and uses its own  screening standards, resulting in  "some of the safest blood in the  world," says Lemke.  The Sechelt blood donor clinic will be held between 3 pm  and 8 pm at the legion on Wharf  Road.  Donors should be between 17  and 60, weigh at least 100  pounds and have eaten a substantial meal one lo four hours  prior to donating blood.  1986 Camry 4 Door Liftback  loyotaOualiryandReliatniiry                  $7 OQC  Cassette Stereo, cruise, tilt lifcOO  1987 Mazda 626 LX  Power windows, mirrors, sunrool. cassette  slereo with equalizer, cruise, tilt, alloy wheels  7,427  At SUNSHINE COAST MAZDA, Our Service Staff are  Highly Trained Professionals  with 26 years of Import Service Experience.  ��� ALL MAKES SERVICING  m<Me*rle*a-lVeUk  **K        Ir-touuiiiMt  BONDED LICENSED INSURED  From London* Ontario  England **^ l "JL  ALLIED  The Carelul Movers  Whether your next move takes you across the world or to a new  hometown in Canada, choose Allied.

"It's mainly due to habitat  degradation - agricultural runoff and urbanization," said  WWF vice-president of communications, Pegi Dover.  In British Columbia, there is  an additional problem - logging.  Stephen Price, vice-president  of conservation, said two bird  populations unique to Coastal  regions are at risk because their  dense rainforest and old forest  habitats are vanishing.  Although the Spotted Owl  has been known to occupy large  areas of newer forest 're-  growth' (minimum 100 years),  said Price, it prefers undisturbed, old forests, (200 to 600  years).  In total,I.S million hectares  of old forest remain on the  southern coast. Of that number,  250,000 hectares are harvested  annually.  'The species may once have  been widespread in the area,"  said Price. Only 50 nests are  estimated in the province now,  wilh 12 actual sightings. The  sightings have mainly been in  Vancouver, Squamish, Fraser  River areas. No Spotted Owls  have been seen on the Sunshine  Coast but 'call sounds' have  been recorded in the Toba Inlet  and Powell River areas. Ilowev  er, the sounds are not consul  ered absolute proof of existence  as the call can be confused with  that of the more commonly  found Barred Owl.  The Marbled Murrelet is also  on the WWF list with an estimated 45,000 breeding pairs  noted on the Canadian coast.  This may seem a large number to be considered endangered, said Price, but Iheir colonial nature puts them at greater  risk to disasters like oil spills  and rainforest depletion.  Sightings of the Murrelet are  extremely rare, said Price, with  "at besl, only a few habitats  known."  Recently, a joint wildlife  sludy by Ihe Forest Service and  the Ministry of F.nvironment  found a "significant" number of  the birds occupying both the  east and wesl slopes of the  The Coast supports a vuricly of hirtllil'e, including this plicated  woodpecker found at Porpoise Bay Park,     losl Johnstone photo  Caren Range.
