 \  b  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY,  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C. V8V 1X4.  Tough times ahead  School Board  seeks cuts  by Maryanne West  So you think times are tough?  Take time to pity the School  Boards.  Earlier this year, after much  time and thought had been given  to the preparation of the annual  budget, the Provincial government arbitrarily demanded that  almost a quarter of a million  dollars be cut from the 1982  budget. Back to the drawing  board with sharpened pencils  went the trustees and, by snipping  a little here, cutting back there,  reducing supplies, putting off  scheduled maintenance, etc., the  required reductions were made,  with the loss of one permanent  job, some part-time employment  and the curtailment of the NES  programme for the remainder of  the school year.  In May, a new education financing bill was introduced by which  all corporate and industrial school  taxes were paid to the government, from which grants are made  to School Districts according to  their needs.  Now the other shoe has fallen;  Victoria demands a further reduction of $232,000 from this year's  budget, details to be received by  the Minister by August 30th or  September 15th at the latest. If  that isn't enough, the promised  grants for the 1983 budget will be  based on the lowest monthly expenditures for 1982, not on the  year's average.  A special School Board meeting  was called August Sth, to discuss  ways and means j.o.^laeet  Victoria's latest demands.  Secretary-Treasurer Mills  reported in detail the current standing of the 1982 budget, showing  a possible surplus of $15,000, too  little to be of any significance in a  $10 million budget.  The School Board's options appear to be:  1. To cut programmes and/or  materials, but this, warned Mills,  would not be just a temporary  answer, as there will be no extra  money to replace them next year.  The 1983 budget is expected to be  not more than $9,913,188 down  from the restrained budget of  $10,065,710, even though the  school population in this district  continues to grow.  2. To ask for a voluntary salary  roll back. The School Board has a  contract for 1982, with both the  Sechelt Teachers Association and  CUPE, and in the middle of the  holiday season it will take time to  organize membership discussions.  Mills said that an estimated cut of  7.7 per cent, including trustees'  stipends would meet the government's requirements. Both  teachers and CUPE members  would have had about eight months of their 17 and 16 per cent increases, so actually only four J  months would be affected, but  trustees had not voted themselves  an increase this year.  3. Staff lay-offs���but these  have to have prior Ministry approval and, in the case of  teachers, 30 day's notice would  have to be added, resulting in a  time loss of at least two months.  This would mean that as no  teachers could be laid off in  September, double the number  would have to be laid off in  November to achieve the same  level of savings.  Altogether, this is a horrendous  problem and not one to be settled  without due consideration of its  impact on the children's education.  Obviously, as Superintendent  Denley said, this isn't just the  School Board's headache, but involving as it does the educational  needs of our children, an issue for  the whole community.  The trustees first move has been  to set in motion the process to  open discussions as soon as possible with the STA and CUPE, and  later to involve the parents' auxiliaries. Any input or suggestions  from concerned citizens would be  welcomed.  What happens if a School  Board doesn't meet the Minister's  timetable? This question was asked the Deputy Minister at a  meeting to brief school boards of  the new budget restraints. James  Carter responded without a moment's hesitation: any School  Board which doesn't comply with  Victoria's requirements will be  removed immediately and the  district run by a government  trustee with wide-reaching  powers.  BCGEU strikers find ways to pass the time as they manned picket lines last Thursday.  -SHul H. 5oe�� 4 Fee* Weea pMoe  News not all bqd  Ferry halt slows business  by Julie Warkman  Marty ��� ��������'���<*>,��� rtnio*ien"v;'  businesses on the Sunshine Coasi  saw what promised to be a profitable summer turn sour this past  week as visitors, fearful of being  stranded by a ferry shutdown,  fled for the security of the  mainland.  At Fisherman's Resort in  Garden Bay, Peter Benjafield had  three groups leave on Wednesday.  Nan Larson of Lowe's Resort in  Madeira Park reported a number  ,if checkouts both Wyptsday and  VThursday, with some cancellations. Many, many other  businesses such as motels,  restaurants and gift shops have  also suffered.  All is not bad news, however.  At Duncan Cove Resort in Irvines  Landing, Gordon Binns reported  business as usual. Some vacationers are even looking forward  to an excuse to stay a little longer!  And at Lord Jim's Lodge in  Secret Cove, disaster was avoided  by a stroke of ingenuity,' followed  up by a fine job of organization.  Faced with the possibility of a  group of 30 cancelling, arrangements were hastily made to  have the group walk on the ferry  at Horseshoe Bay and be brought  to the lodge by school bus. "If  they are unable to return the same  way, we will arrange for boats to  take them back." said Christine  Kuck.  Apart from the inconvenience  caused by the one day ferry  disruption, the BCGEU strike  does not appear to have caused  too many difficulties thus far  Pickets at liquor stores in Gibsons and Sechelt and those at provincial offices in Sechelt report  some minor verbal abuse, but no  major incidents have been  reported.  In Royal Terraces  SCRD leases office space  ON THE INSIDE...  Community news Pages 4&S  Cavalcade wrap up Page 6  More letters Page 10  Logger Sports results    Page 11  Classifieds Pages 14, 15 & 16  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has successfully  negotiated with Royal Terraces  for the lease of 7,010 square feet  of office space, and will, if all  goes as planned, be moving its  operation on October 1, 1982 to  this newly constructed, prestige  office/condominium complex.  At a special board meeting called last Tuesday, the board  authorized its solicitors to prepare  a lease for an initial term of three  years at a fixed rental rate of  $8.25 per square foot per year on  a triple net basis, with an option  to renew for a further two year  term at a rental rate to be  negotiated at time of renewal.  In addition, an option to purchase the premises has been  negotiated at a price of $575,000  within 12 months, $625,000 after  12 months but before 24 months,  and $650,000 after 24 months, but  before 36 months.  Area B representative Peggy  Connor, the director who initiated  the motion, told the Coast News,  "I can't see the Regional District  continuing in the cramped  quarters we have now. The only  way to run an office efficiently is  to have everyone in the same location. We would have preferred to  purchase our own building, but  since this is not possible at this  time, this was the best option  available."  The only dissenting vote cast  was registered by Sechelt alternate  director, Joyce Kolibas. "Although I understand that the  money is set aside for this year, 1  am concerned with what is going  to happen down the line. In a time  of restraint, I can't help but  believe that we should practice  it," she told the Coast News.  Jon McRae, Area C representative and a member of the  negotiating team told the Coast  News, "We are actually leasing  eight separate titles and they can  be treated collectively or sublet in  dividually giving the board a great  deal of flexibility." Concerning  the increased amount of rent it  will represent, McRae noted, "It  represents about two per cent of  the Regional District's budget,  and anyone who can keep the cost  for accommodation to that  amount is doing well."  Resort plan stymied  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  Hydro line progresses  A proposal from the Royal  Reach resort to acquire a water  lease in Porpoise Bay has been circumvented by Sechelt village. The  matter was discussed briefly at the  regular Sechelt council meeting  last Wednesday.  The developer's plan was halted  when Sechelt village obtained the  lease for itself. The developer has  argued that he had the implied approval of council to lease those  facilities for potential commercial  development. He now is seeking  compensation from council  for  the costs of float construction.  Alderman Short told council  that "No letter of authorization  from the village to proceed with  the project has been filed".  Mayor Koch reminded council  that although the matter had been  discussed, "Nothing ever came of  il. Wc (the village) are the leaseholders for the next three years".  The mayor subsequently told  the Coast News, that council  would never agree to a project  which might prevent free public  access to either the Porpoise Bay  wharf or the boat launch area.  by Julie Warkman  A B.C. Hydro crew of 35 are now in the process oi stringing 24 con-  ductor wires from 60 steel guide towers spanning from Squamish to  Cape Cockburn on Nelson Island. These linesmen make working atop  100 foot towers look easy. -** W"*" >*"���  While the cable laying ship,  Skagerrak, has been working in  Malaspina Strait laying underwater cable for the B.C. Hydro  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir transmission  line, another Hydro crew has  started to string "conductor"  wire between the recently placed  towers spanning from Squamish  to Cape Cockburn on Nelson  Island. When completed, 122 reels  holding 30,000 feet each of conductor will be used.  For the most part, steel core,  aluminum clad conductor, one  inch in diameter is used. Where  conductor spans across Sakinaw  Lake and Agamemnon Channel,  high tensile conductor five times  stronger will be used. Though not  an easy task, special care must be  taken with conductor, as the  slightest scratch or burr in the soft  aluminum can create a "corona",  resulting in radio and TV static  for hydro users.  To start the process, a rope is  strung between towers by  helicopter. This rope is used to  pull a small pilot line through  sheaves suspended from the  towers. The pilot line then pulls  the main cable through, which in  turn is used to pull conductor. In  most circumstances, the main  cable pulls through four lengths  of conductor at a time. It takes  over $3 million worth of specialized equipment to complete the process.  , B.C. Hydro hopes to have this  portion of the project completed  by September.  St. Mary's wins  plan approval  The board of trustees of St.  Mary's Hospital announced  Thursday that the design for its  phase two expansion has been approved by the Ministry of Health.  The phase two expansion includes a new hospital building  which will contain 50 extended  care beds, renovation of the existing 22 extended care beds to  acute care, and the expansion and  renovation of some of the existing  service areas.  The approval is for the planning stage in the complex approval  process used by the ministry. This  first stage approval will allow the  hospital board to proceed through  the detailed programming and  design, contract documents, and  detailed cost estimates.  Following completion of this  stage in the planning, the board  must seek a second approval from  the ministry before proceeding  with construction. This second  approval is subject to the concurrence of the Sunshine Coast  regional hospital district.  In announcing planning approval, the ministry said the expansion cost is to be limited to a  total of $5,5150. Coast News, August 9,1982  Comment  Vi   i .in i  Dare we suggest?  In a memo dated June 8, Inspector of Municipalities Chris  Woodward implied to B.C. municipal authorities that they  should mind their own business when it comes to holding  local referenda on nuclear disarmament.  What Woodward failed to mention was the fact that the  Trident submarine base located in Bangor, Washington,  makes it the business of every B.C. municipality.  He also failed to mention that 57 Canadian cities and towns  are conducting referenda this fall, including Vancouver,  Richmond, Nanaimo, Prince George, Courtenay, Vernon,  Duncan, Ladysmith, Castlegar and Pitt Meadows, among  others.  Dare we suggest Gibsons and Sechelt add their names to the  list?  Magnanimous or dumb?  The B.C.G.E.U. shut down the ferries for 24 hours last  week, thereby infuriating tourists, merchants and commuters  alike. The Labour Relations Board ruled the union was within  its rights legally, if not morally, to picket the ferry terminals.  The ability to close down the ferries is probably the most  powerful job-action weapon the union possesses. Pulling the  pickets off the ferry terminal was not only a magnanimous  gesture of good will, it may have been the dumbest thing,  from its point of view, the union has done.  In any case, one good gesture deserves another and now it's  time for the government to respond in turn and make the  union an offer it can live with.  You read it here first  The successes and failures of the first annual Roberts Creek  Arts Festival are listed elsewhere in the pages of this week's  paper. There is no need to repeat them here. Let it be recorded, however, that despite some initial financial problems  which, we are told, are common to the beginnings of such  events, five years from now the R.C.A.F. will not only have  become an important part of our cultural heritage, but a huge  financial success.  Remember, you read it here first - and whether we're right  or wrong, this item will make a great Remember When.  V  FIVE YEARS AGO  Following a district-wide  analysis by the board of the  level of service rendered by  our district superintendent,  Mr. John Denley, it is a  pleasure to report that the  overall quality of his service has been rated excellent.  The public's view of our  school system, moreover,  has improved markedly in  the last two years, due in  no small measure to Mr.  Denley's interaction with  and availability to the community.  TEN YEARS AGO  One way to curb Inflation  would be to base wage and  price ceilings on the national produce figure each  year, Mike Blaney, Liberal  candidate in the provincial  election told an audience  of about 35 at an organization meeting in the Peninsula Dining Room, Sechelt,  Thursday of last week.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  The big swim from  Nanaimo to Sechelt is set  to take place Sunday and  will, if weather conditions  permit, start shortly after  dawn.  This swim, an approximate twenty miles, was attempted last year by Evelyn  Creelman of Victoria, who  was lifted from the water  two miles from the finish at  Sechelt.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Gibsons organizations  are volunteering to help  Helen Bezdeck, 16-year-old  Elphinstone student to get  the Canadian Age Class  Track and Field Championship games at Waterloo,  Ontario, August 25th.  Fire completely  destroyed the Egmont  Trading Company store in a  $40,000 fire early Sunday,  July 29th and the occupants, Mr. and Mrs.  Philip Graf escaped in  nightclothes with only  what they could carry in  their hands.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The much talked about  weather for July 1957 can  hardly go unnoticed, since  July was the dullest and  wettest ever recorded in  Gibsons, with rainfall  totalling 3.24 inches  against a normal of 2 inches.  Pender Harbour Aquatic  Club is putting the  finishing touches on  preparations for the 10th  annual Pender Harbour  Regatta which goes  August 17th.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  History was made at Port  Mellon this week ��� for Howe  Sound Pulp Company  -when the big British  freighter, Royal Star nosed  in to take on a cargo of  1,000 tons of draft.  The school board this  week gave the green light  to clearing and levelling  the school grounds at Egmont.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Residents have reason  to celebrate in the opening  of their large new wharf,  sponsored by the Gibsons  and District Board of Trade.

Musings  John Burnside  Of late, the smiling face of Joe  Clark has appeared in the city  newspapers telling us what he  would do if he were to become  Prime Minister 'tomorrow'.  The fact that Clark is still leader  of the Progressive Conservatives  is a testament to his durability and  perhaps reason enough for him to  smile. Then, too, there is the by  this time virtually unanimous  detestation of Pierre Eliot You-  Know-Who, which must also be a  source of satisfaction for  Canada's Prime-Minister-in-  waiting.  I would that the concept of Joe  Clark as leader of the nation  could make me smile.  Let's remember a few things  about the brief Clark tenure of.  move the Canadian embassy to  Jerusalem, a decision which  outraged the entire Arab world  and, if implemented, would have  cut off Canada from the oil upon  which it depends from the Arab  states. Clark's retreat from that  disaster was without redeeming  dignity. It was ineptitude and  short-sightedness of a degree  which was truly frightening. It  became apparent that Clark was  one of those hothouse debating  flowers the parliamentary system  can throw up, who know next to  nothing about the world outside  of committee rooms and the  House of Commons.  If that were not bad enough,  there   was   his   insistence   on  aauvau, ua�� uaasa ^aaaai .c.u.c ua.   dismembering   Petrocan   at   the  power. It is true that the LiberalsS/'behest of Peter Lougheed and the  seized back power by a piece of  sleazy opportunism, the like of  which they long ago mastered.  The vote in the House of Commons which defeated Clark was  ostensibly on the budget brought  down by John Crosby, and subsequent events have indicated as  clearly as possible that the Crosby  budget, which led to the defeat of  the Conservative government, was  a more cogent and realistic approach to the nation's economic  affairs than anything that the  Liberal Fox, Allan MacEachan,  has been able to produce since the  Liberals regained power.  Though the budget was the apparent reason for the Conservative downfall, it is worth  remembering that there were  other aspects of Conservative  policy which did a very great deal  to shake the confidence of the  Canadian people in Clark as  leader of the nation.  There was, above all, the enormous stupidity of his decision to  international oil companies.  Clark's pathetic attempt at steely-  eyed resolution on that issue,  despite the fact that the Canadian  people had finally begun to realize  that, alone in the modern world,  they allowed foreign interests  total control of their energy supplies, should have disqualified  him for all time for national  leadership.  Meanwhile, he's still at it. Still  does he want to dismember  Petrocan and turn the energy industry over to the 19th century  capitalism favoured by the oil  barons, favoured that is unless  they have to be bailed out by  public funds.  The thought of Joe Clark as  Prime Minister may make Joe  smile, but it does absolutely  nothing for my funny bone. He  remains what he always has been:  a narrow and unworldly intelligence at the head of a party of  feuding dinosaurs.  There's got to be a better way.  Towards a wider perspective  Knowledge is power  by Geoffrey Madoc-Jones  The economics of the Western  world sputter and gasp, spewing  out inflation, unemployment and  the threat of a "Depression".  Part of the real fear felt by people  today is because of the obvious  economic uncertainty of the next  few years. However, another factor enhances and exaggerates this  apprehension. It is a sense of  powerlessness. The system is too  large, too complex to be  understood or affected by the individual. Therefore, people feel  hopeless and apathetic, and this  increases the current sense of  malaise.  The nature of the modern  global economy is, it must be admitted, a complex one.  Economists, the experts,  themselves seem to disagree about  what causes the inflation or the  falling dollar. On top of the confusing business and financial  data, the public is also inundated  with an unending and seemingly  disconnected barrage of revolution, riot and carnage on the  television news. How on earth can  an ordinary fellow make head or  tail of this morass. Where is an  Alexander to cut through this  Gordian Knot and make it all  clear? Unfortunately, there is no  simply analysis, and anyone pro  pounding one is either a charlatan  or a demagogue.  That does not mean that we  should give up the attempt to  understand what is happening. A  beginning must be to read about  the history of this century. It is  not possible to have any idea what  is happening today in the Middle  East, for example, without some  understanding of the military  defeat of the Ottoman Empire in  the First World War, the Balfour  Declaration, the subsequent  political solutions, the discovery  of oil in Arabia, the basic structure of Islam and Judaism, etc.  The recent attack by Armenian  nationalists on the Ankara airport  has meaning only if the Armenian  massacres in Anatolia in 1915 are  known to have happened.  This plea to study history is  allied to a plea to study some  geography and economics. The  fundamental intention is that people should see connections between events. Only when these are  seen historically, politically, or  economically, can the confusing  rush of data become information.  Schools and the media have a  responsibility in assisting the  citizenry towards this understanding. If they do not, then a confused and frightened populace  Please turn loPage 3  When it comes to parapsychology, metaphysics, the  supernatural and the like, I have  developed a skepticism bordering  on the cynical. I simply don't,  won't and can't believe in it.  Whales that talk to one another?  Nonsense. UFO's? Absurd.  Telekinesis? No way.  There is one phenomenon of  the mind in which I do believe,  however, I call it, for want of a  better name, "the triumph of the  will." I believe in it because I've  seen it work - have used it myself  in fact - and I have seen the  benefits and dangers attendant to  it.  The triumph of the will is a particularly appropriate topic right  ' now. There are a couple of ex-.  ampIeS of the w'<vill running rampant'' that have occurred or are  occurring in our own province  and community.  First, let me explain what I  mean by the power of the will. All  of us at some time in our lives  have wanted something so much  that we have "willed" ourselves  to get it. For some, it may have  been a material possession - a car,  a house, a new bike - for others, it  might be the affection of someone  special or a career or academic  achievement.  I know from personal experiences that if a person is able to  convince himself that he "will"  get the thing he wants, there is  nothing short of death that can  stop him. It may be a simple matter of the person telling himself  -out loud - over and over - that, "I  will succeed, I will succeed". Or,  it may be a matter of quietly concentrating on a goal until it  becomes a part of the conscious  and unconscious mind.  These techniques do work. I  know. But before you rush out  and fix your mind on some as yet  unattainable goal, let me warn  you about the unanticipated consequences of "will madness".  When a person makes a conscious  decision to achieve some particular goal, the mind has a  tendency to develop tunnel vision,  to ignore the other things in life  with which it is normally occupied.  The danger here is that the person with the "will", may and probably does, ignore friends,  relatives, his personal life, his  finances, even his happiness and  mental and physical well being.  Once the "will" has taken over, it  is difficult, if not impossible, to  divert it from its course.  It's really just a simple matter  of - if you want something badly  enough, you can get it, but you  will have to pay the price.  The two examples of the will  gone made currently affecting us  are the regional board's collective  will to have its own building and  the B.C. Government Workers  Union's will to win its settlement  with the government.  I have no argument with either  of these goals. The SCRD needs  more space - no one in his right  mind will dispute this. As far as  the government workers are con-,  cerned, they have a right to.a decent settlement. They foolishly accepted a bad contract three years  ago, and they're being asked to  bi(e the bullet again.  Where I do have an argument,  however, is with the fact that both  of these groups have allowed  single-minded, tunnel vision  "will" to take charge of their  reason. They have focussed on  their goals for so long and so intently, that nothing can divert  them.  Both groups have swallowed  their own propaganda. Propaganda, like any other weapon, can be  as destructive to the allies as to the  enemies. In World War I, poison  gas was used extensively, until it  was found to kill those using it as  often as those against whom it  was used. In the same way, if a  message is repeated often enough,  it will be believed as much by  those saying it as those to whom it  is said. This is so, even though the  times and circumstances have  changes - as in the case of the  regional board building (the  shrinking tax base may no longer  support a new building, rented or  built), and the case of the  B.C.G.E.U., (the province is  clearly broke and can't afford the  wage demands).  Both groups, however, have  been taken over by their own collective "wills". Neither can respond in any rational way to the  changing times. It is my hope that  they both achieve their goals, but  the price of the consequences of  achieving them might not be  worth it, Maybe they should try  talking to whales for a while.  Whittlings  On fine summer afternoons  an old man comes to this beach.  Some days he fust sits.  Other days he whittles.  Mostly he whittles shavings.  But when the mood Is on him  he whittles toy boats.  His boats are not well shaped.  He knows this and leaves them  for the tide lo take.  ���Hubert Evans Letters to the Editor  Cantor respond* on rollbacks  Coast News, August 9.1982  Editor:  Your recent editorial  "A Major Root Of Conflict" was unfair to both  Mr. Gant and Mr.  Cargo. At no time has  Mr. Oant said or implied  that wage rollbacks or  deferrals would be accepted if some local coordinated effort could be  made to save jobs. Mr.  Gant's position has been  dear and consistent with  that of the national officers of the CPU and,  indeed, the CLC. Any  consideration of wage  rollbacks must be tied to  job guarantees. There  must be no layoffs and  no shutdowns for inventory adjustment or other  reason. Management has  been unwilling to provide such guarantees  because we recognize  that, in the long term, we  can only produce as  much as we can sell. We  cannot continue to  stockpile our lumber and  pulp without limit. Not  only can we not afford to  finance such inventories  at today's interest rates,  excessive inventories  continue to depress the  market long after the  recovery is underway.  Further, Mr. Gant and  Mr. Cargo cannot enter  into any local agreement  which contradicts the  terms of the master  agreement applicable to  all CPU mills. Wage  rates are central to that  agreement.  Although "work sharing" is now well  established among nonunion workers as a temporary solution to current economic distress,  the unions have generally  been cool to the idea.  The B.C. Telephone  dispute is perhaps the  best known example.  The union's refusal to  accept a reduction of 30  minutes in the work day  has resulted in a large  layoff. Here in Port  Mellon, union employees  make an individual contribution to "work sharing" when they elect  layoff status during  plant shutdowns and apply for unemployment  benefits, rather than accept vacations, supplementary vacations,  floating     holidays,  Editor:  The Israelis' barbaric  atrocities perpetrated  against the Lebanese and  the PLO repeat the treatment of Jews by the  Nazis. By this very fact,  Israeli inhumanities are  doubly reprehensible, inasmuch as they experienced, more than  anyone else, the  monstrous carnage  following a genocidal attack on a whole race of  people. Yet, it is  necessary to avoid  wrathful condemnation  of a whole people while  so many Jews, mostly of  the working class, are  honest, peace-loving  people who themselves  are ground under the  iron heel of the Zionists.  (Generally speaking,  Zionism is ideologically  synonymous with imperialism.)  This distinction must  be observed if one is to  understand today's  history. It is unfortunate  to see so many pitiably  misguided Jews who,  under the influence of  nationalist sentiments,  naively support a cause  inimical to themselves,  but then, do not the majority of the Christian  world habitually support  their governments whose  governments whose  policies, more often than  not, work against their  own interests?  In the case of today's  Jews, however, the excesses perpetrated by  their  Zionist  masters,  who will inevitably  overplay their hand,  could result in a  resurgence of Jewish  pogroms, especially in  the US where anti-Jewish  sentiments remain latent,  in spite of official  favouring of Israel,  whereby the innocent  Jew will be caught in the  crossfire.  We are witnessing a  clash of two civilizations  in which the old is  resisting the tide of  human evolution. As  western civilization is  representative of a traditionally dominant class  -one which I categorize  as being a breed similar  to beasts of prey - the  challenges presented by  the nascent civilization,  representing the traditionally downtrodden  masses, and being  alerted by the initial successes accomplished  through the Russian  revolution of 1918, set in  motion a period of reaction culminating in the  establishment of  repressive regimes of a  fascist nature, along the  vulnerable periphery of  the western world.  Today, the steady advance of the common  man struggling to find  his place in the sun, as  exemplified by the successful overcoming of  reactionary forces such  as in Vietnam, Cuba,  Nicaragua, El Salvador,  the breakup of colonialism, etc. is being  met by the concerted ac-  To Celebrate  We Offer These Cleaning Specials  J^Kaameem    asm���V  %^  ���59.95  0-\  Must be booked before August 14th  BEE CARPET CARE  885-9038  Recommended by Canada's  Leading Carpet Manufacturers    a^gr'rr  iiiUA*JmmmmW METNW  Call us anytime.        * sur0*2i�������  a message  B0MSCS-  OnlySIS Extra  to olaan an  additional  bedroom  Prao  Electro Static  Spot Remover  to II rat  20 Bookings  (Retail Value  ���5.86)  20% Oft  Upholstery  Cleaning  with  Carpet  Cleaning  banked-time, days-in-  lieu or other forms of  paid leave. If all  employees so elected, the  mill would require a  significantly larger  labour pool in order to  provide for relief when  the mill is in operation.  In fact, most of our  employees apply for paid  leave so that the "18 per  cent loss of earnings"  does not fall uniformly  on all employees, but  hardest on those junior  employees who lose their  jobs.  In order to do justice  to the title of your  editorial "A Major Root  Of Conflict", you will  find it necessary to dig  much more deeply into  the current state of  union-management relations, a state of unarmed  warfare which recognizes  no quarter and Ignores  both the national interest  and the interests of our  friends and neighbours.  William I Hughes,  R. Eng.,  Vice President,  Canadian Forest  Products.  Zionism it the enemy  tion of class forces  representing fascism,  Zionism and imperialism. Being of the  same mould, they are  united by common interests to stem the tide of  human liberation (emancipation).  Barring a nuclear clash  between these two opponents, in which case  the extinction of life on  earth becomes a distinct  possibility, the forces of  human evolution will  continue to overcome the  resistance of the  "haves" in country after  country. The position of  the average American  and Canadian is not so  remote from that of the  average Latin American.  Life here is still tolerable  and the abuses of power  and the trial of poverty  have not yet reached the  flashpoint. However, the  inexorable march of  evolution will not stop at  our borders.  Sincerely,  Joseph Sparacino  Park  praise  Editor:  It was most gratifying  to read Peggy Connor's  account (Coast News,  August 2,1982) of how a  group of dedicated people turned a wilderness  lot into a usable park.  Residents of the Halfmoon Bay area can be  very proud of this accomplishment. People,  for years to come, will  ever be grateful to your  community for bringing  the joys and happiness of  "Connor Park".  I sincerely hope that  the Sechelt residents will  respond accordingly,  when we eventually commence work on L.1472.  This area, consisting of  160 acres of Crown  Land, is in the process of  being turned over to the  Village for Parks and  Recreation.  K.R.

Knowledge is power;  that is why the right-  wing death squads in  Central America kill  teachers. A literate  peasantry is much more  difficult to exploit than  an illiterate one.  Likewise, energy  diverted into analysis  from mindless consumption, presents a threat.  This column, over the  past year, has attempted  to shed some light on  issues and to fill in thdr  context. You may find  such a thing as irrelevant  in a local newspaper;  however, the concept of  "local" has lost its  meaning in a world filled with satellite receiving  dishes. You may not  always have agreed with  the analysis; too right,  too left, or if it is possible too middle, but I do  not believe you can quarrel with the intention.  Each citizen has a  responsibility to be informed. Do not rely on  the Vancouver  text, a reputable political  atlas, and either read  them or use them as  references. Seek out a  range of opinions on  issues from Marx to  William F. Buckley. Get  to know the history of  your country, your continent, and your world.  The only defense  against Toffler's  "Future Shock" is a  knowledge of the past,  The speed of change and  the confusing nature of  events are no more  disturbing today than  they were in rural Britain  in the nineteenth century, as the navvies hacked out railway lines from  the fields of the feudal  peasanty.  Remember that when  the Manchester to Liverpool train first arrived in  Liverpool at the incredible speed of 30 miles an  hour, Mr. Huskisson, a  member of the official  welcoming party, stepped on to the track to get  a better look at the approaching juggernaut.  He may have been a promising politician, but he  ..     ., had no concept of such  newspapasorontheTV speed and because of this  became the first fatality  to keep you  knowledgeable. When in  Vancouver, buy the occasional London, New  York or Toronto  newspaper. Get a few  histories of this century,  a good basic economics  on the new line.

Some of the  thanks for this are due to  the folks of Halfmoon  Bay for helping to make  it so. In the first place,  the big job of getting the  stage transferred from  Roberts Creek to the  Gibsons dock was undertaken by Floyd Carmen  of Redrooffs. Nicki  Weber, also of  Redrooffs auditioned the  contestants and arranged,  the program for both the  Friday and Saturday  night shows.  ��� On Friday night  George Carpenter  -Redroofts again - made  a guest appearance on  the show and delighted  Ihe large audience with  his Al Jolson selection.  On the Saturday our own  Halfmoon Bay Variety  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  US USED  FUMIITUffi  ttV hu> Hen- lllllllt'  886-2812  group opened the program with their  Hawaiian medley, dancers and all,...and got  the show off to a great  start for a most enthusiastic audience. The  five finalists of the  Talent Show followed,  with each one giving of  their very best - and their  best was just tremendous. The judges did not  have an enviable task in  having to select three  winners because they  were all so very good.  Needless to say, the  Halfmoon Bay crowd  were ecstatic when the  winners were announced  - none other than the  Murphy sisters, Diedre,  Shiela and Stephanie.  The girls really did  deserve to win as their  performance was flawless, smooth and very  professional. They delighted the audience with  several encores as further  proof of their versatility.  Nicki, who accompanied  the girls is the one who  has spent many hours  coaching the girls and arranging the numbers.  The four of them make a  great team.  Little Angela Middleton from Gibsons was  a worthy second with her  beautiful little dance  called "Schooldaze". 1  think she won the hearts  of the judges with her  graceful movements and  expressions.

UNSETTLED  WEEKEND:  Probably most of our  readers will find  themselves in a predicament this weekend - will  our expected visitors get  here or not? All depends  on what happens with  the ferry situation.  Sechelt  Council  briefs  The regular meeting of  the Sechelt village council, held in council  chambers last Wednesday, dealt with the  following items:  Heritage advisory committee:  Mayor Koch informed  council of the formation  of a heritage advisory  committee which will  plan the use of the  Rockwood Lodge facility, The committee will  investigate the advan-  tages of having the old  lodge put in a heritage  trust and its eligibility  for heritage funds.  Park upgrading:.  Alderman Short told  council that a delay in  getting supplies has held  up work in Hackett Park  but he advised council of  the contributions and  volunteer work of Ron's  Contracting and Vic  Walters in helping with  the park repairs.  by Jeanie Norton,  886-9609  What do you choose  to show visitors when  you're giving them the  grand tour of our area?  Molly's Reach? The  Skoocumchuck? Cliff  Gilker Park? But have  you ever considered what  an interesting tourist attraction we have in the,  ugh, slug?  Slugs come in an infinite variety. There are  the basic Mack ones, the  anemic white ones with  horns, the pale green  slimy ones, or even spotted ones. Think of the  colour brochure wd  could compile for the  edification of newcomers  to the area!  Of most concern to  local gardeners, of  course, is how to get rid  of these nasty little  beasties that wreak such  havoc with our gardens.  Everybody has a pet  theory.  A lot of people swear  by salt, others by beer.  That seems like a waste  to me. Ashes only last  until the first rain and  ducks apparently only  like the tender young1  critters. Somebody mentioned trapping them  under grapefruit halves.  Or was that what you  were supposed to put the  beer in?  A friend used to drop  them into a bucket of  gasoline to dissolve.  That  seemed  rather  ghoulish to me. I get  more satisfaction out of  chopping them with a  garden spade. However,  I was recently told that  leaving the dead ones attracts more who feed on  the corpses. Now that's  disgusting!  Local carpenter Ken  Boe has been working all  season on his slug stab-  ber. He's progressed  from asingle nail on the  end of a stick to a bunch  of nails so that he  doesn't have to be so accurate. Now he's trying  to figure out how to  clean off the slugs he impales.  The ultimate has to be  an electric fence.  Reportedly a 12 volt current low to the ground  will keep out not only  slugs but woodbugs and  other tiny pests. Seems  drastic but when you  ve seen your young seedlings chomped to the  ground you're ready to  try anything.  Slugs are a big fact of  life in Roberts Creek but  perhaps we could turn  the problem to an advantage. Gibsons Dogfish  Derby helps to get rid of  that pest. We could have  a Slug Derby with prizes  in a number of  categories: biggest  ugliest, and most caught.  Diced and served on a  mushroom cap with  garlic butter they could  be called Roberts Creek  escargot.  The mind boggles at  the possibilities. It could  be a whole weekend of  celebration and we could  call it the Slug Fest.  Guest Spot  The new Mr. Roberts  Creek swept onto further  glory at the Sea  Cavalcade parade on July 31. Bob Zornes and  his fellow contestants,  dressed in their finest  pageant raimant, took  first prize in the comic  category. Their "float"  reflected the true  Roberts Creek character:  David Scott's beat-up  pickup contrasted nicely  with the sports cars of  the Gibsons Queen candidates.  Later that evening,  however, Mr. R.C. was  disappointed that more  people did not show up  when he made a guest  appearance behind the  bar of the Legion. Apparently word had not  gotten around that we  would be so honoured  with his presence.  D* th ***** *m ******** hMMh prablMrt  Bo r*m lw��* ��� ***** *t kUMU?

Contrary to opinions expressed in a local paper's  editorial, the Festival  Society has taken an informed look at its first  effort, decided on a  course of action in both  areas mentioned above  and is moving as rapidly  as possible to implement  the necessary plans.  There is a considerable  debt of approximately  $27,000 left from the  festival and the first  priority is to pay off all  creditors. The possibility  of finding an institution  of Individual to bankroll  a loan was discussed and  Ian Vaughan, Area 'A'  representative on the  Regional Board, will  head a delegation which  will consult with Oddvin  Vedo, Regional  Economic Development  Commissioner, on what  grants and loans may be  available. Dances, a car  raffle and other fund-  raising events will be  held.  There are four hours  of video-tape of the  festival which, according  to Hagan Beggs, could  be edited into a very attractive half-hour show,  which could be sold to  TV networks to raise  money, and could be  useful in recruiting sponsors for the festival.  Hagan Beggs described  the video as "a good  visual reference of the  ambienceof the festival"  which showed it as an  "in the woods, family  concept" event.  lt was pointed out  that, from a business  point of view, any enterprise of this nature is  likely to fail financially  on the first attempt;  however, the Society has  proved that it can  organize and conduct an  event which is successful  both artistically and atmospherically. The  Festival is felt to be a going concern.  The Courtenay  Renaissance Faire was  cited as an example of a  similar event which,  although it lost $18,000  in its first year of operation and $3,000 in its second year, yet this year  made $100,000. June  Boe will research their  situation for the Society  and see if the Courtenay  experience can be used to  help the Roberts Creek  event.  Planning for next  year's festival began with  a discussion on the value  of the festival to the Sunshine Coast. As a tourist  attraction, like the  Courtenay Faire, it will  be of financial benefit,  bringing visitors to the  area and providing work  for people of the community.  The festival hopes to  be included on the major  Canadian folk music circuit and will be able to  offer employment to  Canadian musicians as  well as local performers,  thus helping the culture  of the country to come  alive and further defining that elusive entity,  the Canadian identity.  Both CBC and a Pay TV  company in Toronto  wish to videotape next  year's festival and this  will be a source of  revenue and of advertising.  Two committees were  formed at the meeting,  one to deal with settling  the debt and one to begin  organizing next year's  Festival.

Dressing Service  Every fourth Monday  a group of ladies get  together at the Garibaldi  Health Unit building in  Gibsons to make up  dressings, gauze and  gauze pads.  Sunshine Coast Dressing Service is the name as  they have formed a  society, receipts now  may be tax deductible.  The dressings are used by  the Home Care nurses  and the relatives of patients who are being  treated at home.  The service is a big  help to those who need  it. All they ask is a donation to cover the cost of  the materials used,  roughly l'/i dollars for  one dozen; for people  who need several dressings a day this is a big  item.  They say they are no  special group, but I think  they are very special people to volunteer their  time to make up this  helpful aid. They could  use some more hands, so  anyone from anywhere is  welcome to come to the  health unit on a fourth  Monday and put in one  hour or whatever time  you may have to spare.  A donation isn't  always received, maybe  the extra expense is just  too much for some people already burdened.  However, if anyone  wishes to donate, the address is Sunshine Coast  Dressing Service, Box  219, Sechelt, B.C. VON  3A0.

Note: An abridged  ursion of the following  story appeared in Vancouver Magazine. This is  llie uncut draft and con-  i.iins some information  .ihoui Roberts Creek  lhal will be of interest to  local readers. The piece  was co-aulhored by  Yvonne Klan and is the  nucleus of a book on  which Trower and Klan  arc presently working.  PART ONE  The whole thing began  in a quite innocuous way  in the summer of 1981. I  was working on a story  about Vancouver's  lowlife in the early Six-,  tics and planned to  enliven it with a sort of  rogue's gallery of the  more bizarre characters  who thronged its main  drag in those losl years.  As I rifled through the  mental tiles I recalled Ihe  curious Arcade of  Mysteries and my brief  meeting with its proprietor, Herbert Emerson Wilson.  As far as characters  go, Wilson was certainly  in a class by himself. It  had nothing to do with  his appearance - he was  an unprepossessing little  man of about sixty-five  or so with glasses and a  slightly askew nose - nor  with any recent accomplishment. His uniqueness lay in what he  had done in the past.  Herb Wilson was born  in Wyoming, Ontario, in  1X81 to highly religious  parents who planned  Irom the beginning that  he would enter the  ministry. He ran a poor  parish in Toronto initially but soon gave this up  to follow the more  lucrative American  evangelical circuit. At  thirty-five years of age,  as he was all too eager to  tell you, he left the  church and became a  crime lord - a master  thief known as the King  of the Safecrackers.  I first heard of  Herbert Emerson Wilson  in 1949. That year, the  long-defunct Colliers  Magazine ran a five-part  article detailing his success at this unorthodox  new endeavour, for  Wilson (dubbed Holy  Herb by his underworld  cronies) took to cracking  safes like a duck takes to  water.  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  From the very outset  Herb recruited a gang of  crack professionals and  planned his capers like  military manoeuvres  with the acuity of a bent  four-star general. He  employed a superior  form of nitroglycerine  developed by his chemist  father (a highly devout  man who must still be  spinning in his grave).  Each job was plotted  months in advance and  the targets cased with  scrupulous care. Part of  Herb's bag of tricks involved the maintenance  of a virtual costume  department.- During the  actual commission of the  crimes Herb and his gang  donned elaborate  disguises. Like a troop of  actors constantly changing roles, they were impossible to identify.  Herb enjoyed solving  thorny problems. One  such involved a safe in a  lighted department store  window under the  surveillance of both a  night watchman and the  beat patrolman on his  rounds. Herb handled  this dilemma in a unique  manner. He and his accomplices broke into the  store and over-powered  the watchman, whose  place and clothes were  taken by a member of  the gang. He assumed  the watchman's position  on a chair in the window  and nodded reassuringly  to the harness bull as he  sauntered by. Meanwhile, Herb and the rest  sawed a hole in the wall  behind the safe, pulled it  through and replaced it  with a cardboard replica.  Concealed by the wall,  they gleefully cracked  the strongbox, rifled its  contents and absconded  with the loot. The well-  nigh impossible caper  had been pulled off  without a hitch.  The crafty ex-preacher  and his mob worked  their way gradually  westward, dumbfounding police forces in  Chicago, Kansas City  and Detroit with their  commando-like forays.  They struck again and  again, thoughtfully leaving behind false evidence  such as out-of-town  papers    to    absolve  employees   from   suspicions of complicity.  By the time they hit  California the gross of  their ill-gotten gains was  reaching the staggering  sum of $16 million according to a Colliers  magazine series of 1949.  Then Herb, perhaps carried away by his flawless  five-year track record,  made a cardinal error in  judgement. He decided  to branch out and start  knocking off US Mail  trucks. This federal offense brought in the  G-men, and eventually  Herb's right-hand man,  Cox, was arrested and  through him the whole  group, including Herb  Wilson was rounded up.  The evidence against  them was largely circumstantial but they  decided to take it on the  lam anyhow, and broke  out of the county jail. In  the melee, Cox was killed. Soon recaptured,  Holy Herb was charged  with his murder. He  swore his innocence, and  it was a matter of record  that he had always  eschewed the use of  violence in his many  felonies. The judge gave  him life, though, which  was later reduced to 12  years in San Quentin.  Following his release he  was deported back to  Ontario.  ���To Be Continued  At the Twilight  The Clint Eastwood adventure-drama Firefox ends  its current run at the Twilight Threatre in Gihsons  tomorrow, Tuesday, August 10.

Despite  rather cloudy weather,  we had a wonderful turnout.  The cloud cover  rendered impossible a  very popular event "The  Skydivers".  The parade was great  and I want to thank  those who picked up the  theme and did such an  excellent job of it.  Despite a downpour just  prior to the parade and  while it was marshalling.  We felt especially  honoured when the early  settlers met in Dougal  Park for the tea. They  are lovely people and it  was a real bonus when  Robert Clothier of The  Beachcombers came over  to greet them.  I missed my side-kick,  Suzette Arsenault, who  helped me so much last  year, but before she left  town she got things well  started for "Kid's Day"  and smoothed the way  for Kathy Love, who  jumped in and ably took  over. My thanks to both  of them and to Chris  Carrew and all those  who helped out with contests, races and games.  My special thanks must  go to Jim Stobie who,  once again, bailed us out  with construction of the  booths for the games,  and to Alan Black of  Labatts, who answered  an SOS for help with a  P.A. system. The kids  had   fun.  CBC, with their  special effects, did a fantastic job as usual blowing up the boat. (I wish  to thank Gordon The  Troll for providing the  boat). As always, it is an  event looked for and enjoyed.  Another new event  was Sailboarding, which  Is also new to Gibsons  and catching on. My  thanks to Lisa Graham  for co-ordinating this  new event.  The Finance Committee, headed by Ken  Crosby, put on another  great lottery. We had  over sixty prizes (involving many more donors),  which was especially  great in view of the present economic conditions  and we did not sell as  many tickets (for the  ' same reason), but the  committee, including  Diane Strom, Boba  Lambert, Kevin Ryan  and George Giannakos,  put in as many hours as  last year, providing a  solid and reliable base  for Sea Cavalcade.  Another solid, reliable  group I must not fail to  mention   is  Halfmoon  Webber gave her very  professional assistance  to the Talent Contest as  co-ordinator, with Dan  Tohill as a performer.  She and the other  members of the Halfmoon Bay Variety  Group added considerably to the success  of the Talent Contest.  Floyd Carmen, of the  same group, would get a  prize for versatility, My  hat is off to you, Floyd.  Thanks.  Thanks must go to the  judges, who had two  days of performing a  most difficult job. The  tent, rented by Dan  Tohill, both projected  performers and provided  a suitable setting for  them. We should have  one here on the Coast.  .  Our budding Barbershop Quartet introduced  a Sea Cavalcade theme,  sung to the tune of  "Michael   Row   Your  Boat Ashore" - words  provided by Niki Webber and the audience  joined in. This quartet  was spawned in response  to the theme "...Circa  1900". I have no idea  whether or not Gibsons  Landing had a quartet,  but there were many in  Canada and in the  United States at the turn  of the century. John  Gilbert, formerly a  member of a barbershop  quartet, co-ordinated the  event and we hope to  hear more from them.  Anyone wishing to participate in the quartet  should call John at  886-8362.  Bluegrass Jamboree  was enjoyed by one and  all again this year. Even  the weather could not  stop the toe tapping,  swaying, enjoyment of  this popular event, provided by Labatt's  that fronve^ Brewery .Limited.. The  Bay. Niki Pacific' Bluegrass  Heritage Society ad  Labatt's seem to make a  perfect combination; the  society for providing  good entertainment, and  Howie Larke of Labatt's  for knowing it and  knowing just  where it  . would bVappreciated.  1 Our thanks must certainly go, to Lorrie  Girard, 'who did such a  | fine job in co-ordinating  the food 'and craft  'booths. Hazel Coxall  succeeded in locating a  nice variety of crafts  people. Good food, hot  tea and coffee, and the  novelty and variety of  the little shops, added to  the overall event.  Super Valu's Dogfish  Derby was, as usual, a  great event and my  thanks go to Blane  Hagedorn and Jon  McRae and the others  who helped with this  event, and also with  other events.  The Wildlife Society,  with very little fanfare,  looked after our budding  fishermen. The kids had  a great time and I would  like to thank Fred  Holland and the Society  for putting on this event.  A very successful  event, though not as visible as others, is the  Horseshoe Tournament,  co-ordinated by Rob  Hagar. Participation- in  this event is growing,  Another set of horseshoe  pits would be needed if  all are to be accommodated next year.  1 did not get to see the  Pancake Breakfast put  on by the Lions Club,  but I understand it, too,  was well attended. Good  work, Gibsons Lions  Club and thanks for the  neat set-up and clean-up.  Hope to catch you next  vear.  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department,  which put on the War  of the Hoses and the  Long Distance Swim,  came through as usual.  These events were  somewhat overshadowed  by their other,  unscheduled events, the  war with the parade audience. 1 have no idea  who won, but no Sea  Cavalcade would be  complete without this  event. Thanks boys.  Thanks go to Bruce  Cramer and the Sea  Cavalcade Horse Show.  My thanks must go to.  banny Weinhandl, who'  co-ordinated the two Sea  Cavalcade dances, the  earlier Hawaiin Dance  and the Queen's Ball.  Those who attended had  a wonderful time.  My thanks must go to  the fellas from B.C. Tel,  who put up the Sea  Cavalcade and Dogfish  Derby banners.  The sailing regatta, as  co-ordinated by Dave  Smethurst, was enjoyed'.  Thank you, Dave, we  hope you will join us  next year, perhaps in a  different time slot.  Thank you, Pat  Korch, for all the other  events on the water that  you co-ordinated;  beachcomber races, log  burling, etc., but most of  all for your support  throughout the Gibsons  Sea Cavalcade preparation.  Thank you, Sue  Rhodes, for coordinating the Fireworks  Display. This must have  been a superhuman effort with all that dampness above and below. It  was, as usual, an excellent job and a great  display. Thank you, too,  for filling in during other  events and for your expert advice overall.  by Rae Ellingham  rmdZ.

They experience the  world into which they  have been plunged in  varying ways. They are  aware of pleasure and  pain.  Since most of them  lack a developed cortex,  they do not perform certain feats which humans  like to think can only be  performed by a "higher  being" like themselves,  although, of course, it is  well-known by now that  dolphins and whales  possess cortices no less  Book Look 1  by Murrie Redman  The Glitter Dome by Joseph Wambaugh, Ban-  lam paperback, $3.95.  The Glitter Dome is a Hollywood bar whose  clientele is mainly off-duty cops. There is a difference belween policemen and "cops". In a  novel about the movie capital, they are definitely the latter. They are instinctive, unclean,  burned out and dedicated only to the pursuit of  one gamey criminal at a time. Cops in fiction  have little else to do but chat with each other,  brandish their pistols and hang around the  streets able to spend weeks on a single case.  Real policemen, they are not.  The iwo detectives in The Glitter Dome are  tracking down a particularly elusive, murderer  connected with kiddie porn. Each has personal  problems: divorce, alimony, child access; Al  Mackey, a sloppy drinker and near-^ulcida! investigator, works with newly divorced Marty  Welborn. Mackey is being pressured not only  by his two successive wives on the matter of  alimony payments, but is also at a dead end on  a series of homicides which mar his closing of a  movie pornography case. Marty Welborn, on  the other hand, suffers a neatness fetish bordering on the insane. Both have deep concerns for  what they suspect is a tendency on behalf of the  other to contact the "policeman's disease",  suicide.  Along the way to finding the person or persons responsible for the crimes, Mackey and  Welborn introduce us to the scruff of the  Hollywood street scene. Their raunchy lives  and their primitive expressions are tragic and  humorous at the same time. This is an interview  with a "cookie bandit" (street kids who check  out a candy bar with a tummy full of free supermarket food):  'As with many barrio youngsters, his buzzword was barely. "Sir, these officers barely advised me of my rights. And 1 barely got in Ihe  store when this dude started hassling me. And  he barely gave me a chance to talk. I couldn't  . barely say nothing. 1 don't think the dude likes  Met-sicans. Cause 1 go to him, 1 go: 'Do you  like Met-sicans? And he goes, 'not too much.'  So then I just barely made up my mind."  "What, may 1 ask, did you just barely decide  to do?"  "I barely decided to file a class action lawsuit  for all Met-sicans... against thai store and  against the Los Angeles Police Department."  "How old are you?" poor old Cal Greenburg  asked.  "Twelve. Barely."  "Why are you a cookie bandit?" poor old  Cal Greenburg asked. "Are you hungry1"  "I was. 1 ain't now." '  There are few excerpts that can be repeated  outside the refuge of the novel covers, they are  just too full of indelicate terms. The author,  Joseph Wambaugh, in a fine writer and has an  obvious gift for as elegant a phrase as any  Romantic poet could curl off the end of a quill,  but his job is not to enchant, it is to awaken an  awareness to the brutality of the streets in the  moral majority. In doing so, Wambaugh entertains also. The Glitter Dome has humour, sex,  violence, pathos and truth.  TWILIGHT THEATRE  For times, prices ami cjjiiwai phowUWjM?  STARTS WED. 11th  "They're here."

I submit that even a.  crab has a limited degree  of -focused consciousness, or awareness,  or self," vShich even if it  doesn't have any intellectual ego identity, nevertheless exists every bit as  much so as the self of the  infant human who lies  mindlessly screaming in  his crib.  I was therefore pleased  to read an article in the  March issue of  Psychology Today by  Robert C, Solomon,  reporting on the results  of the. Dahlem Con^  ferftic* %i Berlin, a!  gathering- of prestigious  scientists who have finally agreed that Ihe study  of animal consciousness  constitutes a legitimate  field of inquiry.  The Dahlem conferences have traditionally been oriented  toward the biological  sciences, attracting top  researchers from around  the world, who exchange  reports and formulate  new directions for investigation.  The significance of Ihe  most recent gathering,  titled Animal Mind  -Human Mind, is that  the view lhat animals are  incapable of experiencing either mental activity  or feeling has been  debunked by scientists  themselves.  The 50 delegates at the  Dahlem Conference, including neurologists,  animal behaviourists,  psychologists, evolutionary biologists and a  sprinkling of philosophers, decided that it  was time to. abandon the  dogma that a dog  doesn't have a mind.  Since Descartes made  his pronouncement three  centuries ago that  animals are mere  machines, few scientists  have dared to risk the  charge of "anthropomorphism" in  their attitude toward the  creatures with whom we  share the planet  And, of course, society's changing values  towards animal suffering  have been dismissed as  "unscientific". Well,  sorry, rationalists, bul il  is now rational - officially so - to consider the ant  and her mental ways. To  say nothing of the octopus, the owl and the  pussy-cat.  Solomon writes: "The  traditional question of  whether or not a creature  is conscious has to be rejected in favour of a  broader question about  Hunter  Gallery  August 2 - 16: Sue  Clarke Watercolours.

"Whether we mean by  mind simply the ability  to experience sensory in-  put or pain, or the ability  to learn and adapt, it  becomes clear that we  are not talking about  degrees of developniefit  within the realfti v<ST  minds...        ^'  "To take the levels-of-  consciousness theme  seriously, however, is to  take seriously not only  the presence of a  minimal mind, but a  variety of mental  abilities and processes."  Solomon quotes  biologist Lewis Thomas  who says, "there is more  than one kind of self-  consciousness and a ladder of levels upon which  the many creatures with  minds distribute  themselves."  Animal psychologists  once dismissed Ihe idea  of animals' minds,  animal consciousness, as  an absurdity. But now,  the idea has become the  basic premise from  which mosl of them1  work.  The question is no  longer "whether animals  have intelligence or  language, or emotions,"  writes Solomon, "bul  rather what intelligence,  what kind of language,  and which emotions."  That's fairly definitive, isn't it?  Once again we see that  at its cutting edge, scientific Western thinking is  coming more and more  to adopt the views of  ancient oriental teachings.  Although the psychologists haven't quite  taken the next logical  step, the truth is that  once they begin to accept  the idea of intelligence,  language and emotions  in animals, sooner or  later they are going to  have to confront the  ethical question: In  which way, then, are  these animals not people?

It's not a good feeling at all,  when your motives or anxieties are misunderstood and  you lose customers, but It does happen.  If you've been In the business long enough, you learn  that the moods of people change, and that those who  threaten to quit you (and carry out their threat) are frequently back when they've thought things out.  I stood on guard in our parking lot all day long on  Saturday, July 31 st and Sunday, August 1 st, to ensure  (as best I could) that our shopping public could get in  to park. I've done this every year these past several. I  could hire someone, but I'd father do it myself In the  Interests of the best possible public relations.  Those who obviously weren't there to shop were  asked to move on. Our customers were grateful that  they could get in to park and shop, as parking  anywhere else was Impossible. But, I took plenty of  verbal abuse and some threats From people who said  they would never darken our doors again. Two young  women actually parked In the lot before I commenced  my duties and went fishingl I told them they were just  very fortunate I hadn't towed their car away. Well,  they thought my attitude was unreasonable and were  abusive as well. So much for that.  Last week I advertised cheese at a reduction of from  25 to 75%. Sure, some was a bit mouldy. It was grabb-  SHOP TALI\  by Bill Edney  ,jgd up guj^ly.by nqp��,,bjjt,some had to take me aside  with a stern lecture as to how dangerous this could be  to the health and well-being of unsuspecting people.  Well, as most people know, a bit of mould on cheese  never hurt anyone. Just trim It offl If It's worth doing,  you have a bargain; if not, don't buy.  Finally, today - and this happens more often than one  might think -1 turned down two young men from out of  town, with payroll cheques of $400 each. I told them I  wasn't a banker, that there was too much risk involved  for me to put up that much cash. I knew the Issuer, but  that does not give me privy to his bank account. So, he  phoned me and said he would take his business  elsewhere. I happen to know he doesn't always pay his  commercial account with us on time.

A plague on both your houses  Editor:  I have many times  been tempted by the actions of Bill Bennett and  his gang of opportuning  con-men to write you.  The current dispute between the government of  British Columbia and the  B.C.G.E.U. has finally  sickened me enough to  do so, if only to express  an opinion.  The B.C.G.E.U. says  thai its members need  more money, that past  settlements have caused  iheir wage increases to  fall behind the inflation  rate. If so, they can lay  the blame only on the  union representatives for  negotiating those can lay  the blame only on the  union representatives for  negotiating those settlements, and on  themselves (B.C.G.E.U.  members) for ratifying  ihose settlements.  The government has  offered an increase in  wages of 6'/2 per cent to  the   union   ostensibly  because (so the government says) the taxpayers  of B.C. will not stand for  a higher settlement.  Whether or not this is  true I do not know. I  have not seen the results  of any public opinion  poll that either supports  or repudiates this position. 1 believe that the  Compensation Stabilization Program (a pretty  name for wage and price  control legislation) set up  by the premier limits  wage increases to 10 per  cent. They have nol even  offered the B.C.G.E.U.  their own stated limit.  This letter is nol written in support of either  side of this dispute. Bill  Bennetts and his Socreds  are simply political opportunists seeking to  bolster their own sagging  credibility through letting the B.C.G.E.U. bring government services  to a halt in the hope that  this will sway public opinion in favour of the  Socreds.   Political   baf-  Faire comment  Editor:  1 feel nothing but utter  disgust after reading the  editorial in last week's  Shoppers Press.  The Writer must have  had his eyes and senses  closed as he strolled  through the festival site.  How could he have  missed the smiles on  children's faces as they  frolicked with clowns,  sang with musicians,  chased balloons, created  a huge papier mache  dragon, went to kit and  hat making workshops  and looked so gay with  faces painted?  As for "Two fellas  singing of whales and  lipton tea" - he was  referring to two of  B.C.'s finest entertainers, Joe Mock and  Rick Scott of "Pied  Pear". They have been  entertaining adults and  children alike for twelve  years that I know of. Obviously the writer has no  regard for fine entertainment.  Dancing in the open  -yes - it is a high - what  with fresh air, fine  music, friends surrounding you - how could one  feel "low" - one has to  feel "high". I suppose  the writer hasn't had this  type of experience. Poor  chap!  The crafts and food  were very nice and not  overpriced, and set up in  such a gay, small town  way. I had such fun  sampling foods and  looking at the wares.  Entrance to the  festival was well organized as to keeping out gate  crashers and trouble  makers. If the writer  noticed - there were ho-  fights, drinks, or  "motorcycle" gangs present.  The R.C.A.F. was a  project put together with  hard work, long hours,  and dedication of some  very energetic people. I  would like to see the  festival happen again  next and in the years to  follow. This can only  happen with a lot of  community support.  In closing, I agree - the  outhouses were awful.  Diana Zornes,  Supporter of R.C.A.F.  And more  Editor:  After a long absence  from the Sunshine  Coast, the editorial in  last week's. Shopper's  Press concerning the  R.C.A.F., convinced me  that I must read the  Coast News to get an accurate view of the events  happening here.  Martha Ceinney  flegab as usual. Bill Bennett and his boys are  beneath contempt - we  should all feel sorry for  them.  As for the members of  the B.C.G.E.U., 1 know  from four years experience in working as a  federal government  employee in Ottawa, and  I can infer from dealing  with provincial government employees in B.C.,  that most of them are  not worth the money  they are being paid now  -none of us should feel  sorry for them.  The average person in  this province now is  caught between two  whining babies - the  B.C.G.E.U. and the  Social Credit Party.  We should support the  government long enough  to make sure the  B.C.G.E.U. does not get  the wage increase they  are asking for, we should  then turf the Socreds out  on their collective ears in  the next election.  Thanks ��>that made me  feel better. There's not  as many idiots out here  as you think there are,  Bill.  Sickened but sincere,  Vern Radul  Gibsons  Water  Sports  thanks  Editor:  Thanks are in order to  contributors and participants of the 1982  Water Sporls.  I would like to thank  Labatts Blue for the loan  of Iheir PA system,  which facilitated the announcing of events.  Also, thanks to Rudy  Kurucz of L & K for the  loan of boomslicks,  burling logs, etc. which  are used in these events.,  And thanks to one and  all Howe Sound and  Richmond log salvors,  for contributing their  time and expensive  equipment to make these  events exciting. These  men displayed good  sportsmanship and  camaraderie in aiding a  fellow beachcomber  recoup his lost boat.  Lastly, thanks to the  spectators, bundled in  sweaters,, who patiently  braved the unseasonably  cold weather in this late-  starting event.  Pat Korch,  Gibsons  Gibsons dresses  up for Cavalcade  The newly opened Oak Tree Market in Madiera  Psrk is more than Just a convenience store. Open  from 9 a.m. ��� 10 p.m., seven days a week,  customers have access lo custom cut meat, fresh  bakery goods, fruit by the case...and if you have a  few moments to spare, take the time to enjoy a cup  of coffee or cocoa in their picture gallery.  ���Jalie W.ehm.n photo  by Gwen Robertson  The theme "Gibsons  Landing circa. 1900"  caught on at this year's  Sea Cavalcade, due, in  large part, to the efforts  of the banks and  businesses who "dressed  up" for the occasion.  Who would ever have expected all that humour  and artistry from "banking" people. The Bank  of Montreal broke tradition some years ago but  this year they had com  petition and what competition! It'.' as just too  difficult for the judges:  they awarded First Place  to all three banks. Gibsons Fish Store with their  under water scene;  Richards Men's Wear  with their old time logging scene; Hunter  Gallery with their antique stitchery; Goddards,  early bathing gear; Trail  Bay sports, and the  ladies in Sears who set  the tone by "dressing  up" were innovative and  artistic.  Small business incentives needed  by Don Lockstead, MLA  Anyone who talks to a  small business operator  knows the story. Things  are tough.  There are more and  more "Going Out of  Business" and  "Bankruptcy Sales", increasing numbers of"  notices of business  foreclosures, andean ever  growing number of empty storefronts.  All of these signs indicate that the present  economic recession is  threatening the viability  of the small business  community in British  Columbia. Statistics indicate that the number of  business bankruptcies in  the province to date this  year is up four-fold over  the number for the same  period last year.  The present slump has  more than doubled the  number of unemployed  in British Columbia giv-t  ing this province���with  12 percent officially  unemployed���the worst  unemployment rate west  of Quebec.  As bad as the  economic slump is, the  Bennett government's  response has been worse.  Over the past year, the  Socreds.have increased  fees and taxes for almost  every conceivable  government service US  businesses and individual  citizens���from hydro  rates, to government  fees, and business licences. The Canadian  Federation of Indepen  dent Business has  documented nearly 1300  cases of such increases,  all far in excess of current inflation rates.  Raising taxes takes  more money out of con-'  sumers' pockets, and  results in even less consumer spending. At the  same time, it increases  inflation. The result has  been even more layoffs  and closures, less consumer spending, and  reduced confidence in  the state of the economy.  Now, the Bill Bennett  government's decision to  increase business and  commercial property  taxes threatens to drive  still more small entrepreneurs out of  business.  What can be done now  to save our small  -business sector? New  Democrats have some  viable suggestions, not  only to help business  cope with the curreflt*  economic recession, but  to lay the groundwork  for a strong and viable  small business sector in  our province.  The B.C. government  could pass legislation to  protect small businesses  threatened by receivership and bankruptcy^"  Such legislation would'  require banks and  business entrepreneurs to'  -sit. down and attempt to I  work out a rescue plan  for any business  threatened with receiver-'  ship, The provincial  government could assist  with loan guarantees and  management advisory  services.  As well, the B.C.  government should be  encouraging the Trudeau  government to make  legislative changes  similar to provisions in  the United States  Bankruptcy Code which  provides a "breathing  space" for small  businesses threatened  with foreclosures.  On a more long term  basis, the B.C. government should decentralize  the activities of. the  Ministry of Industry and  Small Business Development.  The NDP believes that  the province must begin  to more aggressively  market the products of  its local entrepreneurs.  A British Columbia  Trading Corporation,  with offices in major and  potential markets, could  go a long way towards  increasing B.C. exports,  and lessening our dependence on the American  exports market.  Finally, the NDP  believes that it is time  that the provincial  government began compensating small business  operators for the time  and effort spent on  paper work imposed by  govenment.

Cliff Thorson, a keen  young golfer from  Gleneagles managed to  overtake our own Ken  Hincks and with the  tournament by one  stroke, with a 36 hole  score of 143. Overall net  winner was Laurie Todd  who turned in a low net  score of 128.     f  The 1st Flight Winner  in the 0-9 handicap section was Dick Gaines  with a low net of 128. Second Flight Winner in  the 10-13 handicap was  Ralph Kinman shooting  a 131. Third Flight 14-20  handicap was taken by  Tom Milsted who turned  in a score of 129. In the  ladies competition our  own Connie Grant easily  defeated the field to take  top spot with a low gross  score of 159. Ann May  Taylor, who hails from  Seymour golf club captured second place with a  gross score of 170. Becky  Dayton shot a low net  133 to win the low net  prize.  Another scrumptious  barbeque was prepared  by Alex Warner with the  able assistance of Stan  Patterson, Oily Johannsen, John Mathews and  Bill Lawerance and was  enjoyed by contestants  and guests alike. Many  thanks to the various  committees for a very  smooth running and efficient operation.  MA.e*e*********************a  On ladies day, August  3, the ladies* played a  Stableford competition  in which points are  awarded to players for  shooting, bogeys one  point, pars 2 points, birdies 3 points, etc. Winner for the day was Connie Grant with 41 points.  Second, * Doreen  Mathews, Barbara  Mercer and Wilma Sims  with 40 points. In the  nine hole division Jo  Emerson collected 27  points with Edna  Sutherland placing second with 25 points.  Monday Twilite had a  small turnout for the  evening. Nineteen  players formed three  member teams and competed in a scramble. The  team of Dawn Bayford,  Jean McLean and Ed  Pinkerton took top  honours for the night.  Our well-kept greens  have taken quite a  beating from the busy  Sea Cavalcade Tournament and tremendous  green fee players along  with our members. It  would help our busy  green keepers if players  would repair the many  ball marks on the greens  to get them back to tip  top condition. Replacing  your divots on the fairways is also a sign of  good golfers.  A good turnout of  about 50 seniors showed  up Thursday to play a  hidden partner competition. Next Thursday is  the start of a 36 hole  tournament to establish  a senior club champion  for 1982. Eighteen holes  on August 12 and 18  holes on the following  Thursday. A special  award has been donated  by Andy Grey for golfers  65 and over.  Chinooks shine at Level II meet  by Kitty Clark  Five Chinooks were in  high gear attending their  first Hilda Cazalet Level  II Championships, a  much stronger competitive swim event with  Level IPs expected from  all over the province.  Ho..ev<,��\ due to  C.A.S.A. ca..:ellation  and rescheduling, the  championships were not  as well attended as usual.  This yearly event at  the end of June is very  important for swimmers  hoping to better  established Level II times  and move into Level I  for entering the Age  Group Championships  in mid-July.  Our five swimmers  returned home from  Tswwassen with several  well earned ribbons. We  can all feel proud of  these youngsters and  their coach, representing  our community swimming against swimmers  who work out twice as  many hours weekly in  better-equipped pools.

In this column I  plan to give a week by  week guide of what to do  in the garden. Clip the  column with its date and  by this time next year I  hope you'll have a rough  timetable of what is to be  done and when.  Every garden has its  own characteristics; two  gardens a mile apart can  behave in very different  ways, and part of being a  gardener is getting to  know your own plot of  land.  This time of year is a  busy one. There's canning to be done and the  endless search for new  ways to deal with zucchini is gaining momentum. Zucchini is an easy  crop to grow. Most  families will find that  one healthy vine will provide plenty of this versatile vege. Small zucchini are delicious raw in  salads or with a tasty  vegetable dip; the larger  squash are excellent in  cakes or breads; they can  be stuffed with cheeses,  eggs, and herbs and then  baked or made into  caseroles with tomatoes,  onions and herbs; they  can even be used to make  relish. If you have an  unusual recipe please  drop me a line and I'll be  glad to put it in my column.  Green beans and wax  beans are now ready to  pick. The pods should be  picked before showing  the outline of the enclosed seeds; the tips should  be soft and the pod  should snap easily.  Beans freeze well; they  also make delicious  pickles and can be used  in mustard pickles.  Garlic may be ready  now, if the tops are dry  and bent to the ground.  If you soil is very rich the  tops sometimes do not  fall. If this is the case  they should be bent over  to slow growth and  mature the bulbs. When  the bulbs are harvested  treat as you do onions.  Dry thoroughly (cover  the bulbs from the direct  sun) and then braid or  bunch the tops and hang  in a cool well-ventilated  room to store. Onions  are often too large to  bunch and hang. In this  case remove tops an inch  above the bulb and store  in a cool cellar in well-  ventilated containers.  Early beets should be  harvested when the bulbs  are 1 Vi inches - 2 inches  in diameter. The tops  should be left about 1 Vi  inches above the root to  prevent bleeding. The  tops are delicious steamed or the small tender  leaves may be used in  salads. Beets are very  good pickled; they also  freeze well and may be  canned. Late beets may  be left in the ground all  winter if the soil does not  freeze solid. When planting beets in the summer  the seed should be  deeper, up to 2 inches.  Beets benefit from a  good mulch to keep  moisture in and the  weeds out.  Tomato plants will be  growing well now; make  Aire all the fruit can get  plenty of sun. Trim the  foliage if necessary and  pinch all suckers and the  very newest flowers as it  is not too late for these  to set fruit and mature.  Make sure your plants  get plenty of water and  that the fruit is well supported. Fruit lying on the  ground can produce a  damaged crop.  August is the month to  make second plantings  of beets, carrots, peas,  parsley, radishes,  spinach and turnips.  Always check the seed  package for length of  maturing time and  calculate against the  usual time of the first  Fall frost.  Throughout the summer keep your flower  gardens trimmed and  clean. Pick flowers frequently to promote further growth; cut down  flowers that are done,  Sewer problems  concern council  L  Problems with sewage  continue to concern the  Gibsons council and at  its last meeting on  August 3 a report was  presented which indicated that approximately 10 people have  been connected to the  village~sewer system, in  one case as far back as  1978, and have never  been billed for these services.  The situation arose  because, after some  residents were told they  had to connect with the  system, they did so but  did'not have the connection inspected,' as they  should according to  regulation, and thus  there was no record of  the connection. Council  will seek legal advice on  the question of whether  these residents owe the  village the user fee of $42  per annum for the time  that they have been connected.  Council received two  letters connected with  sewage. One, from Mr.  and Mrs. 'Robert  Graham, requesting an  extension of the time requirement for sewer connection for their property which is being con-  Verted from residential  to commercial. They offered to pay a user fee, if  such an arrangement  could be made, as they  recognized the value of  having the sewer line  pass by the property.  Council referred this request to its lawyer to see  if such an arrangement  was legal.  The second letter was  a copy of one sent to  MLA Don Lockstead by  residents of the Bluff  area whose-'properties  would be served by Stage  One of the proposed  Bluff sewage system  They have requested Mr.  Lockstead to facilitate as  much as lies in his power  the council request for  permission to borrow the  needed funds for the  project. The borrowing  By-law 432 which will  enable council to borrow  the funds and so begin  construction of the long  awaited Bluff sewer has  not yet been approved by  Victoria.  such as delphiniums and  geums. Remember the  flower garden appreciates mulch as much  as the vegetable garden.  Most flowers like to be  fed and pampered,  although some do better  without, such as nasturtiums, which seem to  thrive under adverse conditions.  Watering is important  on these hot summer  days. Do this thoroughly  in the morning so that  leaves will be dry by  evening. Many plant  diseases like a moist environment to spread into, and our friends the  slugs can think of  nothing nicer than a lush  moist evening garden.  Any questions or suggestions you may have,  please feel free to write  me at the Coast News,  and I'll do my best to  find an answer and be  glad to pass on your  ideas.

Last week a Synchro-  Swim Camp was held in  Gibsons from August 1-7  and was attended by girls  aged nine-14 years from  clubs all over the lower  mainland. The camp,  organized by Nancy  Lyman who is a coordinator for Synchro B.C.  which is part of the national organization, was  an away from home experience clinic designed  to improve the girls'  skills in figures, routines  and land drills.  All participants have  to be at the 4th or 5th  level and their aim is to  get to junior level and  then to compete in the  nationals. The majority  of the girls are in the  13-14 age bracket and  have an average of six  years of training.  At camp they trained  tor five hours a day and  in fact crammed ten  months tuition into five  days. The girls had six  coaches of whom four  are still competing synchro swimmers and had  just relumed from a  meet in Switzerland. One  instructress, Biz Price,  has twice been chosen  for the national team.  The swimmers were  billetted in Elphinstone  high school where their  stay was highlighted by  meeting Bruno Gerussi  and watching CBC filming in the school.  Although no swimmers from Gibsons attended the camp a  number are among the  Zone 5, Vancouver/  North Shore/Sunshine  Coast representatives in  synchronised swimming  to the B.C. Summer  Games being held in Vernon, August 26 - 29.  They are: Anne-Marie  Michaud, Bernadine  Lee, Tanya Allnutt, Lori  Derby and Dawn Attlee.  The girls will swim in the  recreational category of  synchro at the Games  and will swim figures as  well as solo, duet or team  routines.  Gibsons council  reviews zoning  An application from  Steve Hayward for a  licence to open an  autobody repair shop in  the Industrial Park  brought into focus the  need for a review of industrial zone regulations  concerning the types of  operations permitted in  these areas. Council has  asked for this review,  which is at present  underway as it is felt that  some businesses whose  operation would appear  to be suited to industrial  zones, are at present excluded by regulation  from these areas. Steve  Hayward's application is  a classic example of this  situation and council  agreed to his request for  a licence, although an  autobody repair shop is  not at present a zoned  use for the Industrial  Park, and to continue  the review of industrial  zoning.  Alderman Strom  reported to Gibsons  council last week that the  Langdale stairs, which  were funded partly by  the village and partly by  the West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission,  are now completed.  Maritime Forces  Pacific sent a letter to inform Gibsons council  last week that four  vessels concerned in  Junior Officer Training  will be visiting Gibsons  on August 17-18.  Mr. Wells, representing Park Plaza Develop-  . ment, reported that con-,  structioh is underway on  this project which will  occupy land next to the  Gibsons Winter Club.  Plans for the development are with the architect, a portion of the  development fees has  been posted and connection to water and sewer  will soon take place.  by D.J. Hauka  Part Four  Things had changed so  much in three weeks.  After the camera lost its  window at 830 feet, I had  left for Vancouver to  take care of some other  business. I didn't know  what was going to happen; nobody else did.  Skimming across the  lake, the rain pouring  down, 1 could see the job  was continuing. Now,  beside the float on which  we'd lived, a huge lifting  barge sat, dwarfing the  trailer where the crew  ate, worked, and slept.  More differences. The  new submersible and  crew had arrived. Jerry  Olsen and Dave Cumm-  ing run their sub "Little  Billy" for a sideline.  They were both in the  auto-body business.  Stepping off the boat  and onto the float, we  came in out of the rain to  see how the new operation ran.  There was Jerry at a  control desk that looked  like it belonged in a  helicopter (I later learned  that Jerry was also a  'copter pilot). He had a  cigarette holder clenched  in his mouth as he stared  intently into the screen.  There, on the screen, was  something I had wanted  to see for over a month;  a cat.  Jerry used the sub's  small hydraulic arm to  attach a line to the cat's  side grill. Backing away,  he ran straight into a  huge fresh-water cod,  and just about went  through the roof. He'd  been concentrating so  hard that he was inside  his sub, not looking at a  TV screen.  By the next morning,  we had a cat on the line  of the lifting barge and  the winch was hauling it  up. for all it was'worth.  But the cat was the biggest of the lot, and  wouldn't come up more  than ISO feet at a time.  We had to pull it up, tow  the barge until the cat  grounded, cut the cable,  then pull again. After  150 feet, there was too  much cable on the drum  for the winch to pull the  machine any further.  Drag, ground, cut, pull.  Drag, ground, cut, pull.  That went on until he  cable broke and the cat  jumped off the hook. It  seemed that someone or  something was conspiring against us. What else  could go wrong?  My father and I went  out with the depth  sounder and found the  cat, lying on its side in  the muddy slope 500 feet  down. We followed the  little bubbles of diesel  that popped up to the  surface; finally free after  six months under water.  We left a marker buoy  and sped home.  The other cat was  easy. Leaving the big cat  to rest, we hooked the  lighter machine and  hauled it up to the beach  in a single day. Mind  you, nothing seems to be  accomplished on this job  without something going  wrong. This time, the  chain of the winch  broke. We had to  reconstruct it in order to  pull the cat up the final  300 feet. And we did get  stuck once. Just once.  But it was all worth it,  seeing that yellow catfish  sit so close to the beach,  ready to be hauled away  and fixed. Two of the  recovered cats are working already.  A Saturday night.  Everyone sitting around  watching the sun go  down. The barge is pulling on the last cat. Down  the sunlit lake, a  thunderhead rolls  towards us. It was a  strange sight. The cloud  was very high, but not  very long. You could see  sunshine down the lake  where it had passed, and  we were still being bathed in the rays of the sun.  But where the cloud was  there was darkness, and  you could see where the  rain-squall was developing.  As we watched, the  thunderhead sent bolts  of lightning out, one  striking the shoulder of  the mountain to the  west. A puff of smoke,  then flames. A forest fire  in the making.  We called the  firewatch   and   then  waited. Even as we watched, the lightning was  followed by a heavy  deluge of rain. In a  minute, the fledgling  forest fire was out:  naturally started,  naturally extinguished.  In a minute, we had to  go inside as the squall hit  us. It quickly passed,  and we could see the  thunderhead rolling up  the lake; thunder and  lightning in its wake, the  sun close behind.  "You must go then?"  "Yes," 1 said. Sunday, and only one cat to  go.  "There's only one  left."  "I know. But I have to  go tonight. I have a lot to  do."  When 1 did leave, it  was in a hurry. I caught a  ride into Revelstoke with  some of the owner's  relatives. The sun had  set, and I looked over  that lake. It had been a  challenge. There had  been disaster, defeat,  and then, almost inexplicably, we'd ...won?  The darkness gathered  about the lake. I had left  before the end. But it, at  least, was now certain.  The float and barge  seemed to melt in the  dusk, and become one  with the lake. Then the  corner in the road  obscured the view. My  back to the mountains,  we drove into the night.  my-      il      ai     33E  "**=���3JB  OUT ALL JAIUO OTI  LIVE MUSIC  EVERY WEDNESDAY <k SUNDAY  FROM 7:00 P.M.

On the  Seafood Platter  Hydro warns of  powerline danger  In light of recent electrical accidents, B.C.  Hydro is repeating its  warning that caution be  used around powerlines.  A Vancouver workman recently received  burns to his hands and  face when the aluminum  handle of his paint roller  contacted a powerline  near the roof of the  building he was painting.  Workers and residents  doing home repairs  should be aware of the  potential hazard. The  electrical service connection is located at an  elevated position and is  normally quite safe.  However, anyone doing  roof-level work should  watch for overhead lines  and stay clear of them if  possible.  In another recent incident a crane hit an  overhead powerline,  causing a power outage  in Vancouver's West  End. Fortunately, the  operator was unhurt and  stayed inside the crane  until Hydro crews ensured the line was de-  energized.  Many such accidents  have been the result of  people neglecting to  follow accepted safety  procedures and Workers Compensation Board  regulations.  Whenever there is a  possibility of equipment  such as cranes or cement  pumper trucks coming  within three metres of an  overhead conductor, the  by Chak-Chak  As I have previously  stated in this column, it  has long been my belief  that Gibsons in particular and the Sunshine  Coast in general should  be promoted as "the"  place to find a wide  selection of good  seafood. It has long been  known as the home of  "Salmon Rock" where  one can catch the salmon  of ones dreams. It is a  fact of life, however,  that not all who come to  try for that big fish are  successful.

Hydro crews can de-  energize the line, reroute it or take steps to  guard against contact.

"LASSIFIEJJ ADS  So what happens to  the unsuccessful fisherman when he returns to  the family that has been  watting for that fresh  fish dinner? The next  best thing is to buy some  fish and prepare it as  they had planned to do  with the one they hoped  to catch. Or perhaps a  well-prepared seafood  dinner at a restaurant  will do the trick.  This column was  created to promote good  fresh seafood being  made available to the  potential customer, be he  resident or transient;  also to provide recipes  both new and old to help  those who are not sure  just how to deal with the  queer looking creatures  of the deep.  Since I started On the  Seafood Platter there has  been an amazing increase  in the number of seafood  outlets on the Sunshine  Coast. Anne and Jane,  "The Fish Ladies", had  recently started the Gibsons Fish Market next to  Ken's Lucky Dollar  store. Some of the local  fishermen had fish for  sale on their boats at the  government dock, but  they found it hard to get  people to drive down to  the crowded parking  area. One of these  fishermen, Dave De  Kleer, set up a truck for  roadside sales and his  wife Angela did quite a  good business at various  locations on the roadside  between Gibsons and  Sechelt.  Meanwhile, Mary and  Doug Solomon bought  the Gibsons Fish  Market, expanded the  business and opened up a  store in Sechelt called the  Sechelt Fish Market.  They also put a truck on  the road. Just recently,  they sold their Sechelt  business to Les and Eva  Niepokoczki, who are  continuing the fine  seafood window presentations of ' former  manager, Cohleen.  As of the first of this  month, Gibsons Landing  has the second fish  market,The Village  Fisherman, which has  been opened in the old  Bal Block next to Jerry's  Lock & Key. Angela De  Kleer and Vallerie  Westerby are the joint  owners, with Dave De  Kleer and other local  fishermen supplying the  fish fresh from the  fishing grounds. More  next week. Sea you.

Last  week's winner is Arthur Griffiths, RR2 Margaret  Road, Gibsons, who correctly identified a gateway  at Cliff Gilker Park.  by Julie Warkman  Most people who live  and play in the Pender  Harbour area are aware  that Are protection is  provided by a volunteer  force...a top notch  force, I might add.  Behind the scene,  however, is another team  of volunteers that you  may not be aware of.  These are the people who  man the emergency fire  number on a 24 hour  basis, seven days a week.  When the 883-2345  emergency fire number  rings, five women  situated throughout the  Harbour immediately  stop what they are doing  and put their emergency  training to work. They  are responsible initially  for determining if an  emergency exists and if  so, getting vital data,  and secondly, calling out  the firefighters, "toother part of our job is protecting the emergency  line for emergencies only," says Vera  McAllister. "We are not  an information centre  and can't allow the line  to be tied up on nonemergencies."  If you've ever placed  an emergency fire call,  you may have felt that  the person you were  speaking   with   was  LONG DISTANCE MOVING  We can move you  ANYWHERE  IN  THE WORLD  ^jl/kLUED...  ^MmW The Careful Movers  LEN WRAY'S TRANSFER LTD.  Custom Packing, Storage, Local & Long Distance Moving  HWY. 101,QIBSONS ._ 886-26M  Member of  wasting a lot of time asking questions when they  should have been alerting the firefighters. Not  so. Quite often, the fire  trucks are ready to roll  before the call is completed. "We have a button on our telephones,  that when pushed, sets  off the fire alarm. Once  we have determined that  an emergency does exist,  we push the button and  continue to get all of the  necessary information,"  says Vera. Once the call  is completed, the women  proceed to call each and  every firefighter, then  stand by in case further  assistance is needed.  Vera points out that  while the 883-2345  emergency number is to  be respected, they would  rather respond to a nonemergency than receive a  call too late. "If you  think there is a fire, or  even if there is a fire that  you think you can handle  yourself, please call immediately. The firefighters would much rather  deal with a nonemergency than cope  with unnecessary loss of  life and property," she  said.  Living in a rural area  such as Pender Harbour  has its advantages as well  as its disadvantages  when it comes to responding to a fire call. The  disadvantage is that  there are no street addresses. But because they  are a small community,  the fire department  knows where most people live by name. It's a  good idea, though, to jot  down a description of  your location alongside  the emergency numbers  and post them near the  phone. "It's also helpful  for the firefighters if  there is someone at the  main road to flag down  the fire truck. This holds  true for the ambulance,  too," says Vera.  Even though the  Pender Harbour  firefighting team are  ready, willing and able to  respond to an emergency, they would rather see  residents and visitors  practice good fire safety  habits. "Although a  good many people have  smoke alarms, we would  like to see more of them.  A SIS investment could  save a life or irreplaceable property,"  says Madeira Park fire  chief Steve Boyd.  Because most smoke  alarms will signal you  when the batteries are  getting low, there's not  much worry about their  effectiveness, however,  be sure you know the difference between the low  battery signal and a true  alarm.  If you have infants,  small children or handicapped persons living  at home, Garden Bay  fire chief Bob Fielding  recommends that you affix special flourescent  heart stickers to the bot  tom corner of the door  and windows of their  bedrooms. These stickers  are free for the asking at  Garden Bay Marine Services in Garden Bay and  at R & M Auto in  Madeira Park. "In case  of fire, the stickers immediately alert us to the  fact that a child or  disabled person may be  in that room and they are  thoroughly searched  first," says Bob.  Somewhat surprisingly, both chiefs complimented the residents  of the area for their high  level of fire safety consciousness. The number  of calls to brush fires this  summer and chimney  fires this past winter  have been few and far  between.  For your information,  here are the emergency  numbers for the Pender  Harbour area. Take a  moment to jot them  down and keep them  handy. Don't be distressed that the police and  ambulance numbers are  Sechelt exchanges. Both  of these functions are  dispatched from Sechelt,  and you will receive help  faster by calling them.
