 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings 0  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4    H3.1  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  May 3,1993 Volume 47 Issue 18  Local teachers vow  solidarity in Powell  River labour unrest  by Darah Hansen  Lower Sunshine Coasl leachers say Ihey will not cross picket  lines al Iheir own schools  should Iheir Powell River colleagues move Iheir labour dispute down the const over Ihe  local school board's decision to  accept seven sludenis from Ihe  striking district.  Sunshine Coast  Teacher's Association (SCTA) presi-      dent Sharon Wood  said Friday the ball  is in Powell River's  court and "we will  play (il) the way  Ihey wanl us to."  The decision  comes after lawyers _____  for the association  advised local leachers Iheir school board is acting  as an ally lo the Powell River  board according lo the new  provincial Labour Relations  Code, which prohibits assisting  employers in a lock out of their  employees or in resisting a legal  sirike.  Wood said it is not the  responsibility of Ihe SCTA lo  call their board on labour code  violations and will leave that  option to the Powell River association. "But we certainly think  Ihere is a case to be made,"  Wood said.  "Our concern is for our own  children and our own resources...," she added.  Earlier Ihis monlh, Ihe SCTA  wrote to the board saying Ihe  local school district would suffer financially with the added  population: "The equipment,  supplies and materials they will  use will lake away from resources available lo students of  our own district."  We will play it  tbe way they  want us to'  -Sharon Wood  Wood's letter called the  neighbouring district board callous for adopting a hard-line  position with Iheir teachers and  forcing students lo seek education elsewhere.  In particular, the association  objected to Ihe board's offer lo  pay their grade 12 students $500  per month should they choose to  attend another high        school during the  ���"~~~~     strike.  District superintendent   Clifford  Smith told trustees  at Tuesday night's  board meeting, he'd  also sought legal  advice prior to mak-  _____    ing the decision to  accept the seven  students.  Smith said the board is legally obligated under the provincial  School Act to accept all students into the district who are  considered residents. The term  'resident' is loosely defined, he  added, but includes students living with relatives or guardians.  Smith urged Ihe teachers to  use proper grievance channels  to voice any concerns.  Powell River students have  enrolled in Chatelech and Pender Harbour high schools as  well as Davis Bay Elementary.  Powell River Teacher Association president Bob Brewer  said the teachers and board are  set to enter into mediation this  Saturday and hope to reach an  agreeable solution quickly. He  said no firm decision will be  made until after the talks.  He added, "We think the  children's best option for  schooling is with the teachers  who have had them since  September."  It's a pig's  life. Pender  Harbour  resident  Chris  Kluftinger  gave hot  pursuit to this  escaped  Vietnamese  put bellied  pig, Monday  finally  encouraging  the wayward  beast back  into its pen.  Joel Johnstone  photo  mm  Inside  pag��6  i n  8  4  pat$8  Waters cooling around Gibsons pool finances  by Charles Hart  Will it open this year or not?  The answer is yes, according to aquatic  commission chairman Blane Hagedorn. "To  tell you the truth I'm really quite confident  about it," Hagedorn said of the commission's latest prediction that Gibsons pool  renovations will be complete by Nov. 1.  The revised timetable hinges on receipt of  new drawings for a 20- metre replacement  tank. Those should be in the commission's  hands within the next two weeks, Hagedorn  said.  The other sticking point, a wrangle over  pool operating funding between the Town of  Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, has been resolved, according to  Roberts Creek regional director Brett  McGillivray. The SCRD recently axed  $90,000 in pool operating costs from its  1993 budget and McGillivray said he  thought the commission's predictions of a  Nov. I date were optimistic.  Even if the date holds up, the SCRD has  enough operating funds in reserve from 1992  to cover its share of anticipated pool operating costs this year, McGillivary said.  "All they've got to do is give it to us,"  commented Hagedorn, saying the commission has budgeted $38,000 for operating  expenses in 1993. "It costs us $13,000 a year  to run when it's just sitting there."  While normal operating expenses average  about $10,000 a month, Hagedorn said the  commission expects those costs to be higher  in 1993 because of additional start up costs,  such as recertification of employees.  Members of the aquatic commission have  met with regional directors twice in the last  two weeks to iron out pool funding difficulties.  Meanwhile, construction bids for the  revised renovation are expected to return  from tender within the $425,000 budget limit  set by referendum last year.  Sechelt  social  housing  slatedfor  debate  by Stuart Burnside  A public hearing Wednesday  will help Sechelt council determine the fate of a proposed  social housing development on  Binnacle Avenue.  So far Nancy MacLarty says  she is unaware of any expression of disapproval for the idea.  "1 haven't heard of any,"  MacLarty said, "... But that's  what the public hearing is for."  MacLarty is responsible for  forming the non-profit Coast  Housing Society (CHS), the  group responsible for bringing  the proposal forward.  The development will consist of 22 units located in 5  buildings.  The units will be broken  down into single, two, three and  four bedroom units.  The sile for the project is  currently zoned Public Assembly and following the public  hearing, council will decide if  the land should be rezoned for  residenlial use, MacLarty said.  At the public hearing, members of the society, along with  the Vancouver architect firm of  Toby Tone will be on hand at  the hearing to answer questions  about the project.  The architects will have  drawings of the proposed development.  MacLarty said the CHS is  also in-the process of applying  to the provincial government  for approval of the project  through the BC Housing Management Corporation.  Every year the provincial  government identifies areas of  the province which need social  housing, but MacLarty said  Sechelt has not been included  among those areas.  "That doesn't mean we don't  need the housing," MacLarty  said, "It means we were lumped  in with the lower mainland."  "Right now we have a zero  per cent occupancy rate in  Sechelt," she added.  If Ihe application is accepted, the corporation will provide  all of the architectural, construction and land purchase  costs.  The society will manage the  units and they will be rented at  a rate equal to 30 per cent of an  occupant's income.  Band, developer argue marina  report inaccurate, talks planned  by Jane Seyd  The Sechelt Indian Band and  partners in Panorama Construction say they'll fight charges  that their current marina proposal is environmentally unsound  and have reaffirmed their plans  to go ahead with the project.  Speaking after a Sechelt  chamber of commerce meeting  Thursday, band councillor  Calvin Craigan said officials  from Environment Canada have  made reports based on "misconceptions" being spread by opponents of the development, which  don't take the actual site into  account.  "A lot of (regulatory officials) haven't even seen the  basin," he commented.  But meanwhile, he said  development in the upland isn't  likely to proceed without the  go-ahead on the marina: "I think  it would be prudent that we wait  for approval." The band was  responding to a roadblock hit  last week by the marina when a  report from an Environment  Canada assessment officer  called potential effects of the  development environmentally  unacceptable and said current  plans will have to be changed.  There were some  things we agreed on,  a lot of things we  didn't'  -Gary Feschuk  So far, one of the biggest  areas of contention is a proposed lock system which will  raise the tidal level of the basin.  Environment Canada says  that's a concern, because it  could affect habitat for fish and  other wildlife.  Both the band and Panorama  say their consultants don't agree  with that assessment, and add  taking away the lock system  would mean deeper dredging in  the basin.  Last week, developers met  with environmental! officials.  "There were some things we  agreed on, a lot of things we  didn't," said Sechelt band chief  Gary Feschuk, who added the  report had come as a surprise.  But at Thursday night's  meeting, Craigan told members  of the business community the  band is confident problems can  be resolved.  And he invited local businesses to get involved in spinoff benefits from the marina,  through joint venture projects  with the band. "We feel it is  only going to be beneficial to  the entire community," Craigain  told chamber members. "The  Sunshine Coast needs a boost  like this."  Craigan said the marina will  provide a large additional tax  base for the band and added that  it's just one of the business  developments which the band  has been planning.  turn to page 2  All you can eat for a good cause could be found at Kiwanis Village Care Home Sunday as auxiliary volunteers put on a decadent desserts smorgasbord to help raise funds for a new hospice.

S716Teredo St, Sechelt  Mon.Sat. 885-5178  School budget slashed into shape, few layoffs expected  by Darah Hansen  A few departments have been left feeling bruised. But almost everyone has  made it through a $833,000 cut in next  year's school board budget - made in  order to eliminate a potential deficit -  without having lo lace drastic cutbacks.  Details released by secretary-treasurer  Tim Anderson in an interview Wednesday reveal only a few departments face  reduced funding in order for the school  district lo meel the $26.4 million 1993/94  budget.  Salaries for employees remain the  same, with some increases. The district's  220 teachers, counsellors, and librarians  make up the majority of the cosl, totalling  $10.8 million. Nineteen school adminis  trators will share $1.9 million of the total.  The three top administrators. Iheir  staff, and departmenl operations, including custodian costs, follow at $4.1 million, or 15.8 per cent of the total.  School programs and field trip funding  will continue at a similar level as lasl  year, Anderson said. But it will be up to  the individual schools to decide if all the  money will be allotted to thai area or be  used to supplement their regular school  supplies cost, which was hil with a 50 per  cent reduction.  The new budget will mean some layoffs for the district, concentrated in the  department of speciaj education. The  equivalent of three full-lime leaching  assistants (SETA) will lose their jobs next  year after a cut of $217,330 from the  department. "It's going to be difficult."  said the coordinator for student support  services, Drew McKee. it will mean a  strain to the services provided as the  department will be expected to look after  the 277 special needs students in the districl with approximately five less SET As.  Another departmenl hil with hard cutbacks. Continuing Education, promises to  continue its level of services despite losing all but $15,000 of its district funding.  Director Verne Wishlove said Ihe  community can expect an increase in the  level of fees for programs but will not be  oul of line with what people can afford.  "There are all sorts of Ihings that can  be done lo effect cost savings. But the  programs will slill maintain their quality," Wishlove said. He added it was still  premature to say if layoffs were necessary for the small department's continued  operation.  Librarians loo are slill assessing damage lo their departments after hearing the  news the book budgei will be reduced by  $48,922 or 50 per cent.  Librarian Keith Brind at Gibsons Elementary said he and his colleagues have  yet to discuss Ihe meaning of the budget  culs and will be doing so al an up-coming  librarian's association meeiing.  Mainlenance and custodian services  were also hil hard under the new budget,  losing $55,000 from their regular funding.  DR.

"The band is going lo take  the leading role in economic  development on the Sunshine  Coast, but we're willing to  share."  Craigan said leases on the  development will be for a 105-  year term (which includes  approximately five years to finish construction.)  He also did not rule out  future expansion into the Tsaw-  come property area now leased  out by the band.

Volunteers will also be  screened by RCMP before being  accepted for the patrols.  Timing of the patrols will  likely have to be flexible, said  Armel, lo lake into account  problem times and areas for  criminal activity.  He said it's also important lo  involve members of Ihe community outside of the downtown  business owners, who can gel  involved in patrols of residenlial  areas.  "It's not just a merchant's  problem," said Sechell councillor Michael Shanks. "Quite  clearly it's a problem for residents as well."  Said Armel.

West Sechelt elementary wins  first place in Odyssey of Mind  looking for $10,000 to compete  Darah Hansen photo  by Darah Hansen  So far the only problem the  students of the West Sechelt  Elementary Odyssey of the  Mind team can't solve is how  Ihey can raise enough money to  represent the Coast in the upcoming world finals.  Seven grade 6 and 7 boys  from the school have won the  opportunity to participate in the  finals after placing first over  102 teams in the division II  (grades 6 through 8) provincial  championships held last weekend in Vancouver.  The team won the competition by providing the best long-  term solution to one of five difficult problems. The students  chose "Which end is up?" for  their project, for which they had  to design and construct a  lightweight balsa structure,  capable of sustaining a sizeable  Funding need for  team to compete  in world finals  amount of weight - a project  that reflected the fragile earth's  ecosystem and its ability to  withstand environmental pressures.  Their design, supporting 289  pounds, not only won them top  honours in their own age division but also topped the high  school entrants in the same category.  The boys also successfully  answered a series of problem-  solving questions asked during  the competition.  With the recent win under  Uptown revitalization plan  proceeding away from public eye  by Charles Hart  The bills have been paid from the public purse,  but the report itself has yet to be handed over for  public perusal.  The report is the Uptown Revitalization Plan  for upper Gibsons, Ihe result of a year's work by  an uptown merchants committee, which included  Gibsons councillor Ed Steeves.  It was received by council one month ago but  denied release until councillors had a chance to  look it over.  The report is still under wraps and there has  been no comment by council as to what it thinks of  the recommendations and ideas it contains.  Meanwhile, the town filed the report with the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs to collect a $10,000  strategy development grant that covers half the  report's costs.  The ministry released the funding last week.  Gibsons' administrator Dan Legg said it is up to  the Uptown Merchants' Association to decide if it  wants to proceed with the plan, which would  include recommendations on building design,  facades, setbacks, landscaping and signs.  if the merchants approve the plan, it would  move on to concept stage, replete with graphic  designs, before physical improvements would be  undertaken.  A similar revitalization plan for lower Gibsons  was completed last year and released for public  review.  The Gibsons Landing Merchants' Association  is now getting ready to proceed to concept stage,  said Legg.  Creek traffic accident claims life  The Sunshine Coast counted  its third traffic fatality of the  year Wednesday (April 28)  after a two-car accident which  claimed the life of a Gibsons  woman.  Linda Diane Sturdy, 42, was  killed after her car collided with  a pick up truck at the intersection of Joe Road and Highway  101 in Roberts Creek. The accident occurred about 4:30 p.m.  The two passengers of the  truck were both injured while  Sturdy, the lone passenger in  her vehicle, was pronounced  dead on arrival at St Mary's  Hospital in Sechelt.  The accident is still under  investigation by the Gibsons  RCMP detachment.

'   m   ,.  ^UM Coast News, May 3, 1993  Protect  estuarine habitat  A complicated trail of paperwork: designs, studies,  applications and reports, is the obstacle course travelled  by a development proposal from the drawing board to  constiuction.  When the project is large, the technical hurdles to be  negotiated multiply, especially when the plan involves  land whose delicate ecology provides interdependent  habitat for fisheries, wildlife and vegetation.  Such is the case with the Sechelt Indian band/Panorama Construction marina proposal in Wilson Creek.  The regulatory agencies involved, chiefly the environment ministry, are responsible for assessing the impact of  proposed development and asking for changes, if necessary, to meet regulations calling for minimal habitat loss.  The way this is done, since habitat invariably disappears when there is development on or around estuaries  and the foreshore, is through mitigation or compensation;  the developer is required by the ministry to improve habitat elsewhere on the site to compensate for that which  would be lost.  Where the habitat is critical to the ecological balance  and resource survival of an area and compensation can't  be achieved, permits will be denied. Or the project itself  may have to undergo substantial changes to conform to  ministry standards.  It appears the marina project has now reached this  crossroads.  The attractions of flat shoreline for development are  obvious. But while development can go somewhere else,  wildlife cannot.  It is a disturbing fact that undeveloped estuaries - the  most rich and varied of natural habitats, often supporting  hundreds of species of birds, plants and wildlife - have  dwindled to less than three per cent of the province's  coastline.  So tough rules around what type of development takes  place in these areas is vital if the province is going to  maintain a balance in the natural order. Critics argue  that the rules governing mitigation and compensation for  habitat loss do not go far enough, and there is good reason to be concerned given the level of destruction that  has been allowed to occur in the past in such locations as  the Fraser River delta.  And big developers come armed these days. They  commission environmental consultants to do studies,  which are then Tiled in support of permit applications.  Unfortunately, when the conclusions differ from those of  ministry biologists, a battle over habitat values ensues.  Amid the wrangling, certain facts should be kept in  mind. A private consultant naturally has the interests of  the developer at heart - that's who's paying the bill. The  ministry operates from rules shaped by resource and  wildlife policies established by government in the public  interest.  And the rules are the same for all.  Lights, action... plan?  Gibsons is not alone among BC communities contending with the insidious march of commercial strip development.  Displeasure regularly sounds at the way upper Gibsons  is going, and an uptown revitalization plan for the area is  a timely step. Now that merchants and town council have  had a chance to review the plan's recommendations, it's  time to let everyone else in on the act.  Make the plan public.  letters  Band showing  youth leadership  The leaders of the Sechelt  Indian Band are to be congratulated on their efforts to help  youths with the Deserted Bay  wilderness program. Many  young people have difficulty  finding a useful and rewarding  place in the modem community  and in confusion and fear some  think alcohol and drugs offer a  way out.  It is inspiring to see the band  leadership working on this problem (a problem common to all  communities today) by teaching  historic native values and using  a wilderness experience as a  contrast to the confusions of  school and town life.  Sunshine Coast Breakaway,  also, is dedicated to helping  young people with the problems  of modern living. Since 1990,  Breakaway has been providing  young people with a safe place  to mingle with their peers and  participate in discussions of life,,  problems with the help of a full  time accredited counsellor. The  only requirement is a desire to  enjoy a chemical-free life.  LLOYD OSBORNE  treasurer, Breakaway  Students swell  petition ranks  i am writing this letter to  thank those who participated in  the Amnesty International,  Group 160, petition-signing in  Gibsons mall April 23. There  were petitions addressed to  authorities on all three sides of  the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina asking that the rape and  sexual abuse of women by military personnel be halted (all  sides are guilty and all sides  have been victimized.)  This event was pulled together on very short notice. I'd like  to specifically thank the following people: Rob Bourque for  helping with the setup; Lola  Westell, Donna Thomas, Denise  O'Brian, Doreen Bartley, Jennifer Fog and Gemma Vandermeer for taking shifts at the  table. A special thanks to  Gemma and Jennifer, who volunteered to stay longer than  asked and to make sure everything was properly disassembled.  Thanks also to the people  who took the trouble to sign six  petitions - especially the high  school crowd who signed in  large numbers and without hesitation - keep that youthful idealism shining bright!  ANNE MILES  Gibsons  Telling tall tales  During last year's Rockwood  Centre StoryTelling Festival, I  found myself too busy to attend  any of the events in the tall tales  tent. I was extremely disappointed as I heard great comments about our local 'tellers'.  Fortunately, Coast Cable  Vision Ltd., filmed the event for  their community programming  division, and I watched it last  week. I was simply delighted,  amused and proud of the local  contingent of tall tale weavers.  It was a wonderful example of a  community involvement event,  and we look forward to offering  the very same venue during this  year's Festival. If, like, me, you  missed the hilarious and sometimes touching anecdotes of life  last year, make a plan to take it  in this fall. I know I will.  Thanks to Marilyn James and  all the 'tellers' for sharing their  stories with us all.  BRONWEN SUTHERLAND  Sechelt  Home vandals  strike again  At' approximately 11 pm on  April 23, someone threw a large  rock through the living room  window of our family home at  8146 Redrooffs Road.

On the night of  April 3, the windshield and rear  windows of our van were  smashed while parked in our  driveway.  We found a number of stones  and a long-handled square shovel on our deck near the broken  window following the April 23  incident. The shovel appears to  have been used for concrete  work as its rusted melal is well-  worn and there are bits of  cement still clinging to it. A  vehicle stopped at the comer of  Redrooffs and Southwood with  lights on was seen pulling away  moments after the window was  broken.  We are appealing to members of the community to call  the Sechelt RCMP detachment  (885-2266) with any information regarding these incidents.

The convocation of a meeting by President  Clinton to try to resolve the differences between  environmentalists and the logging industry in  America's Pacific Northwest must hold great interest for British Columbia.  There are three common issues: the disappearance of our forests; our appetite for paper, the need  for jobs.  Tbe issue is projected by the forest industries as  being between the spotted owl, whose habitat  would be destroyed with the destruction of the old-  growth forest, and the need for people to provide  for their families. This is a irivialization of the  environmentalist position.  If the spotted owl were sacrificed on the altar of  human expediency, the problem would not go  away. In a generation we would have destroyed the  old-growth forests and tljose making a living 'harvesting' forests would again be facing loss of their  livelihoods.  Even if Clinton's meeting is a useful one, there  will be hardship ahead for foresters and the depredation of our environment will be ongoing. We  need something more than compromise. What  might it be?  Let's look at the three issues. If we cannot completely reconcile the disappearance of our forests  and our need for jobs, what about the third issue:  our appetite for paper.  It is unlikely we can modify that appetite  musings  John burnside  enough to save our forests. If we did, forest jobs  would be lost in any case.  But there are ways to produce paper other than  cutting down 1,000- year-old trees and waiting 80  years to cut their replacements. We who live in the  northern half of the continent had better find them,  otherwise tbe jobs will eventually go south where  trees grow faster.  Folks, we have to take some blinkers off; we  have to be prepared to think new thoughts to find  new solutions.  There is a book, entitled The Emperor Has No  Clothes, which deals with the ^legalization of  hemp, also known as cannabis, also known as marijuana. Roberts Creek's Peter light has a copy and  may know where to get others; Bill Hughes, former president of Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, is  said to have read it with interest.  We are not talking here about a recreational  drag, but about a plant with a wide variety of uses  throughout human history which our governments  have sought to eradicate during recent decades.  A friend of mine was growing a marijuana plant  in Ladner some years ago when her father-in-law,  who was visiting, came across it in the yard. She  asked him if he knew what it was.  "Sure," he said. "It's hemp. We grew it all the  time at home. It's used to make rope." He was a  native of the Black Sea area of Russia.  "Did anybody smoke the leaves?" she asked.  "Some," he shrugged. The smoking of leaves  and the people who smoked them were of little  consequence to him against the value of the plant  commercially.  That, I submit, is an attitude closer to sanity  than any we now profess.  The book mentioned above reproduces two articles, one from Scientific American the other from  Popular Mechanics, printed in the late 1930s.  Both articles hail hemp as a new multi-billion  dollar commercial product. Someone had finally  invented a machine which overcame the longstanding difficulty of separating hemp fibres from  pulp to facilitate the mass production of quality  paper, as well as building materials, textiles, and  even a replacement for newly invented plastic.  Despite the enthusiasm with which the invention was greeted, growing hemp was almost immediately declared illegal.  The reason was given as 'reefer madness',  though the only people smoking marijuana at the  time were jazz musicians in New Orleans and  Chicago.  The thesis of the book is that the forest industries, the railroads, the chemical companies and  others with a rich stake in tbe status quo did not  want the competition that improved harvesting of  the new crop would provide.  Spearheaded by newspaper magnate William  Randolph Hearst, himself with ownership in railways, forest and chemical companies, they were  influential enough to have the growing of hemp  proscribed as dangerous and policed by the FBI,  idled by the end of prohibition of alcohol.  The book reproduces relevant Acts of Congress  and notes that (hiring the Second World War, five  years after hemp had been banned, the American  government produced a film urging farmers in  Kentucky to grow it for the war effort, so valuable  was it.  What we are talking about is a plant which  grows 20 feet high each growing season. The west  coast climate is suitable for it. We could put  foresters to work growing and harvesting hemp, an  activity as old as humankind; we could make use  of this remarkable and versatile plant to make  paper, protect our old-growth forests, and sustain  the environment  Can we overcome our fears and learned prejudices enough to utilize it?  lOAST^NEWS  tutaerlfHonUmlar  ���W Cbttaf MltH Of feM HWMMMR  Clliaas' I yaw ��� $35��� S2.45CST��� S37.45  * month. .

Should this be a difficult  decision for him to make? Why  not play ourself? At least you  could see that you came over as  you are, or as you would like to  come over.  And if you don't, they are  just going to get some actor and  if so who? They got Palance lo  play Bomber Harris, remember?  Who would they get to play me?  Who could they get?  Well you could think of a  few and Ihey would all be worst  case scenarios. On the other  hand if you do it yourself there  you will be forever, in some  vault perhaps but forever; and  there you will be apparently giving this whole shebang your personal blessing. Do you, in fact,  give Ihis film your blessing?  Our friend on the Coast is a  poet of note and the film is  about another, newly discovered  young poet. Our friend had a  hand in recognizing her worth  and so his place in Ihe story.  The film, though, is also  aboul an underage street hooker,  and the hooker and the poet are  one and the same (after all  straight poets don'l draw many  screen treatments). It i,s then, a  story of genius being discovered  under a bushel and as such  might join a goodly number of  dramatic productions in which  hat-check girls end up singing in  the Met, etc.  It is, of course, at least  unconventional and possibly  against the rules, to be reviewing a film before it has even  begun to shoot. This I hasten to  say is no way what we're up to.  All we have here is pure speculation, aided by some knowledge of the people and, perhaps  a few looks at the script. The  film they say, may be on screens  (CBC) in the late fall and then  we may see where our speculations have gone.  This film, then, has nothing  to do with the hat-check girl  who ends up at the Met. it has, I  would guess, almost nothing  romantic about it, except of  course, that there may be nothing human thai has nothing  romantic aboul it and after all,  the girl is trying lo write all the  time.  1 use the term girl advisedly.  She is barely 15 when these  adventures begin. She has a  hopelessly unhappy time at  home. Her mother says she's too  fat and calls her a pig. She's trying to write already and she runs  away.  She is unusually naive on the  outside (she's been brought up  conventional Oriental). She is  befriended by fringe-type youth  in a nutshell  groups, children of '60s hippies,  gets to one of the islands, stays  with an older man, a man who  lives entirely on ideals and can  do nothing for her. Meanwhile,  the parents (clearly the villains  of this piece) have the RCMP  after her. She is nabbed, escapes  again and one way and another  falls into Vancouver car-hop  type prostitution.  Dismal enough for sure, but  true. She managed to keep quite  lively diaries throughout and  throughout kept writing poems.  At a point in the film, pretty  much as it happened not much  more than a couple of years ago,  she ran into our friend who was  reading poetry, his own of  course, to a briefly attentive  audience in a pub. She recognized the poetry, knew of him,  drifted over and gave him a couple of her things.  He recognized the real stuff,  encouraged her and what's more  put her on to his agent, or vice-  versa; and the film ends with her  diaries published and her strong-  sfuarf nutter  ly carrying a rapt audience in a  reading of the poems.  Not romantic you say? But  you can go oul tomorrow and  buy a copy of her book, currently in the stores and under her  real name Evelyn Lau. The  poems, if not Ihere already, are  hard on its heels.  Other characters as they  appear, the street people, the  youth people, the social workers, the rather baffled shrink,  would seem lo be for real, but  played by actors; as are the  Johns who are of course,  unnamed.  This is going to be, as we  were going on a bit last week,  very much a matter of style in  the making. It has the potential  to be, given the real situation  and the written one so far as I've  seen, two quite different films.  If they manage lo make the  good one then bravo.  But, not knowing how things  will turn oul, how would you  advise our friend about playing  himself?  letters  Searching for truth,  enlightenment  Re: John Burnside's Musings, Coast News April 19  Thank you for your article on  Sedona. It is the same adventure  that is taking place on many  parts of the good old earth, it is  interesting that the scenario is  about the same, revelation, self  awareness, and the "establishment" in the form of religious  groups trying desperately to  deny peoples' truth.

Journalists such as your  esteemed self endorse this message, one I have been speaking  of for more than 40 years.  Thank you for sharing your  truth. PETER A> MORRIS  Madeira Park  No-fail system  a lesson in failure  In response to your article in  the Weekender (Elphinstone  secondary joins dropout prevention club), I can only say how  badly misled school counsellor  Bill Forst is when he talks about  the idea of having schools that  do not fail students.  This concept smacks of left-  leaning NDP views, lhat if a student is not allowed to fail he  will become more encouraged lo  stay in school and therefore prevent him or her from dropping  out. First, let's take a good close  look al why sludenis are failing  classes in the first place: there  can only be one real excuse and  that is that they are not studying  the material they need to sludy  in order to excel or just pass a  test or assignment', second of  all, many kids decide Ihey just  wanl lo skip a class simply  because Ihey do not feel like  going; and thirdly, they have no  motivation.  The latter problem can be  fixed by more home support as  Rolf Drexl had already stated,  and I do believe that lack of  parental support is also a factor  in this dilemma, but the first two  are problems that only the student can correct by developing  better personal attitudes towards  school in general.  I myself in my earlier days in  high school skipped classes  also, and I found myself failing,  until I finally got my act together and started to pass my courses with relatively good marks.  !l The only excuse I could offer to  myself ,)KfS| th.**i l,(w,as, laiy and  unmotivated, pot because the  system was unfair to me. If you  really look at it, a no-failure  school system does not benefit  anyone, particularly the student  or the teachers, because the concept of tests or any form of evaluation is eliminated and therefore determining the progress of  a student, or how well they are  grasping the material is lost.  Does Mr. Forst honestly  believe that in the work place, if  you expect to get promoted or  make better money, your  employer is going to tell you to  do nothing, or for that matter,  very little in the form of work to  prove you have the skills to take  on something more challenging  and expect to get the promotion  anyways, just for turning up at  the office and sharpening pencils. The idea that you can pass  any class by just attending is  ludicrous and doesn't prepare  the student for anything. What is  especially more difficult to comprehend is that kids who want to  go to university or college, since  many jobs are now requiring  some form of higher education,  are not going to find a professor  or even a post-secondary institution by itself that will pass students jusl for showing up; this  proves that the no-failure system  has failed them anyway.  I do not think you'll find one  university in Canada that is  based upon the concept of no-  failure; the student is expected  to pass tests and other work that  is assigned to him or her in  order for them to understand the  material they are learning properly, it is also a way for a student and the instructor to gauge  their success and determine  where they need to improve in  their studies. I suggest if there is  anything that needs to be eliminated, it is the concept of honour rolls, which I believe truly  discourages the students who  are just holding their own in  school. If you are going to recognize high achievers, then you  should recognize those that are  trying their best as well, otherwise don't recognize anybody.  And as far as Mr. Forst is concerned, even if you could have  100 per cent graduation rate, the  big question still remains and  that is that how many of those  graduates can really face the  music in the real world when  they have been tamed all  through high school? Let's see  if he can answer that one.  KRISHORVATH  Gibsons  Community spirit  thriving  With government cutbacks,  tight economic times and other  limiting factors, the citizens of  the Sunshine Coast deserve a  sincere pat on the back for their  support of non-profit organizations.  The depth of this community  spirit is strongly evidenced by  the donations of time, energy  and material goods to the Gibsons Outreach Teen Centre  (GOTO both in the past and  present.

It's encouraging to the regular volunteers and  to the kids. It makes all time and  effort of working with and for  the kids worthwhile for everyone.  Further support for the GO  Teen Cenlre is planned for April  30. The Gibsons Rotarians and  Interact Club are sponsoring a  Sports Night at Elphinstone Secondary School gym. The proceeds are going to be donated to  the centre. This will be an excellent opportunity for everyone to  enjoy a family event while surJJ  porting a worthwhile project.  These and other fundraising  efforts help cover the basic  operations costs. The GO Teen  Centre still needs a computer  with a hard drive, and IBM  compatible printer, and answering machine, a filing cabinet, a  clock, office equipment/supplies  and games.  In conclusion, the GO Teens  lhank and salute all of the wonderful volunteers who currently  donate their time and energy to  keep the centre's doors open.  They are Marcel, Emily, Andy  and Andy (the A-team), Ben,  Mark, Diane, Annie, Rob, Roz,  Gordie, Gunter and John.

There is only one tidbit of  mild suspense in Fujimura's  story and that is his flight to  Switzerland from Germany in  194S as Hitler's regime collapsed. In Switzerland Fujimura  meets up with Allen Dulles of  the Office of Strategic Services  (the US spy agency) through an  expatriate German National, Dr.  Hack.  Events prevented the  Fujimura-Dulles recommendations for peace being considered  either in Tokyo or Washington.  The US fire-bombed the wooden cities of Japan and followed  that with the atomic bomb  attacks to move the Japanese to  submission.  In postwar Japan, Fujimura,  wilh his vision and humanity  became the successful entrepreneur, head of his Jupitor  Corporation, an agent for  aerospace products. His philosophy of making money is subordinate to developing moral  character, made him sensitive  both to customer and employee  needs. In his enterprises people  always came before profit in  order of importance.  Schools  The Langdale school con-  gratuates all the pupils who took  part in the Music Festival.

The committee  assures lhal anyone who is willing lo lend something will have  il returned in lhe same condition.

Many of you remember Dierdre by her  maiden name Murphy of Halfmoon Bay. She  was, and still is, the gal with the golden  voice, one of the finest talents on the Sunshine Coast who made many appearances  both locally and elsewhere.  The Hartwells have been living in Campbell River where Dierdre was a member of a  vocal group known as Straight From The  Heart.  The group made several guest appearances at Nikki Weber shows and were a  great hit.  Jim is chief pilot with Rainbow Airlines  in Sechelt, so it is hoped that the family will  soon take up residence in the urea again.

Some folks care  We hear of so much abuse and cruelty to  animals that it is great to know that there are  just as many people who really do care about  them.  For instance something that happened  right on Highway 101 in West Sechelt a couple of weeks ago.  There was a young eagle being harassed  by a group of crows and it was so stressed  that having no means of escape it landed by  the side of the highway close to oncoming  traffic.  A driver who saw what was happening,  stopped his car to give it a chance to fly  away.  Likewise, the cars behind stopped, the  drivers sat patiently waiting until the scared  crealure regained ils composure and was  able to use a safe flight space and make its  escape.  20  Perms  May 1 ��� 21  Not valid with any other promotions  %  off  -**v community services  LANDING UNISEX  W,\IR DESIGN -^  657 School Rd.

'Children who witness violence' is a support group program for children from  preschool lo adolescence. The  group format lets ihe children  know lhat they are not alone  and helps Ihem share thoughts  and feeling with others from  similar situations.  The children learn aboul the  myths surrounding family violence and marital abuse, personal rights, problem solving and  coping skills.  Improving peer interaction  and self-esteem is approached  through crafls, activities and  play in an atmosphere thai is  fun and safe.  Last week I talked lo Children's Counsellor Lynn Mackay. "Serious family conflicts  include Ihe abuse of Ihe molher  either emotionally or physcial-  ly," Mackay explained.  "The children frequently  experience abuse themselves, or  neglect and certainly confusion.  The conflict doesn't h^ve to be  physical; neglect is u form of  emotional abuse and its impact  (on Ihe child) is jusl as intense.  This is not a program jusl for  kids whose mothers have been  physically abused.  "It's also for children from  homes where Ihere is conslanl  fighting and yelling and where  neither parent has had time lo  pay attention to them," Mackay  continued.  Before children can participate in the group process an  assessment is made and if the  child needs special one-to-one  counselling to prepare for the  group, that is provided.  Children must currently be  living in an environment where  the abuse is no longer occurring.  "This is a province-wide program," Mackay said. "The  provincial government has  acknowledged the impact that  family life has on the child,  even when Ihe violence is not  physical.  'Training is provided for all  children's counsellors so that  Ihe counselling will have some  consistency throughout the  province.  "The important thing is that  these children can gel help, they  can learn lhat it's not their fault,  they can get the support they  need just to be kids."  Children may be referred lo  the program by other agencies,  including schools.  They may also refer themselves.  Call 885-5881 or 885-5128  for information about this program.

YOU'RE THE WINNER WHEN YOU CHOOSE  COAST NEWS & WEEKENDER CLASSIFIEDS  885-3930 or 886*2622  FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE  Threading life patterns from  the fine art of needlepoint  The decision lo learn the  crafl of needlepoint wasn't  exactly Ken Barton's idea.  Ralher, it was forced upon him.  The year was 1943 and the  then 31-year-old Barton was  hospitalized after being badly  wounded in a mortar attack  while fighting in Italy.  "When you're in hospital you  have to have something lo do or  else you go crazy," Barton says,  stretching his memory back.  The nursing staff had tried lo  gel him lo do any number of  things lo keep him busy but  none held his interest until they  mentioned needlepoint. "I said  I'd give it a try."  That was the beginning a  beautilul frie��4,s_j) hmjveen  Barlon and .his new-found  hobby.  Since thai day he's created  countless delicate needlepoint  scenes.  "I've given most away," says  Barton, but some, his favourites,  have remained, decorating his  Gibsons' home which he shares  with wife, Margaret.  Framed behind glass, the  works splash life on the while  walls with their depictions of  rural serenity, fox hunts and gardens.  Smooth dark wooden chairs  and stools are graced with floral  patterned coverings made by the  hands of Ihis ex-soldier.

Swimming Pool  Nears Completion  BRITANNIA BEACH-After all  these years our swimming  pool is taking on an appearance  of reality. The concrete was  poured this week, and forms  have been removed. It is hoped  that it will be ready for our annual celebration on May 25, tnd  we are quite sure it will be,  with our chief carpenter, Bob  Russell, on the job.  By ROBERT BURNS  TEN YEARS ago, in an effort to improve the medical situation in the district, the Howe Sound Farmers".! natitute  invited al) local organizations to send delegates to a joint  meeting to consider the whole matter. The response waa  unanimous, and at the meeting it soon became apparent that  considerable study of the whole question was needed before  any sound program could be undertaken.  Accordingly, a seriea of  meetings were held, with attendance by representatives  of the district from Hopkins  Landing to Sechelt. Also attending were local physicians, representatives of the  provincial government, and  nursing services. Much data  and information was collected and studied, and after  nearly a year's work the  committee agreed that the  most practical plan would  be to obtain the services of  the Victorian Order of  Nurses, who for many years  have maintained an enviable  record in such work throughout the dominion. The committee   therefore   called   a  general meeting of the pub-   -*��n   But the calls must be an  lie, which was held in the   ��*��*�� wit" "-"sequent mile*  J/r*:  PRF'  Women's  Institute  hall  at  Gibson's Landing.  At this meeting many pertinent  questions were put,  and  considerable    discussion    was  held; finally it was resolved to  go forward with the plan suggested, and a provisional c rv  mittee appointed to *c ������**  the ".Societies'  '  ization   to  ''  "Victorian  HAIRDRESSERS  ROOFING  Kl.i��Jale  Tar & Grant, Shikn, Shingles,  ���total Rooft, Torch On, Durotdi  M3-9303  Miss Sunny's  HAIR BOUTIQUE  883-2715  SERVICES  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  ��ke Coast -News  # a   ��  5c Per Copy. $2.50 Per Year, by Mall  ivc medicine, and checking of  epidemic disease; in this great  success has been achieved; during the period of the VON.  service, while epidemic disease  has frequently made appearance  in the district, it has unfailingly been checked before  reaching serious proportion.

But she didn't stop in Arizona,  or anywhere near to it, for lhat  matter.  As part of a tour to Antarctica this February, Bruce went  aboul as far south as she could  go-  Bruce said she hadn't pondered any romantic notions of  Ihe southernmost, point of land  before, but when her daughter  spotted an advertisement about  lhe Irip in the paper, she was  intrigued.

"Anyone says  'Let's go', 1 wanl lo go... I like  to know what's going on."  To gel to Antarctica, Bruce -  along wilh her sister and her  daughter - first made her way  down to the southern tip of  Argentina, to a place called  Ushuaia near Cape Horn.  There, the tour group -  including Canadian author  Pierre Berlon - boarded lhe  Northern Ranger, a ship based in  St. John's, Newfoundland.

And as far as her age is concerned, she said, "We had one  81-year-old man and he managed fine."  In total, the group made five  landings ��� both in the Shetland  Islands just north of Antarctica  and on the Palmer Peninsula,  which extends from the mainland of the conlinent.  Although the image of  Antarctica's volcanic rock and  ice tends to be one of barren  desolation, wildlife was often  the main attraction in the form  of jumping humpback whales,  seals which lay about on ice  floes and thousands of gentoo  and chinstrap penguins, which  had little fear of humans.  At one point, Bruce also  spoiled an albatross, a bird with  a 10-foot wing span. "I thought  that was really something," she  says. "All I could think of was  The Rhyme of the Ancient  Mariner."  On the continent itself,  Antarctica's slow growing  grasses and lichens can't support  land animals.  The main exceptions, of  course, are humans.  "There are quite a few different countries down there," says  Bruce - mostly in the form of  scientific stations, like the Polish one visited by the lour  group.  On the beaches, greying  whale bones left over from early  whaling stations are slill visible.  But unlike some of the early  explorers, Bruce said she never  felt in danger. "We didn't go too  far in," she said. "Some tours  have been down Ihere and they  haven't been able to land it's so  rough. We had five landings.  We were lucky."  Vancouver strike looms for  Coast correspondence students  by Roxanne Gregory  More than 100 Sunshine  Coast students enrolled in the  Greater Vancouver Regional  District's correspondence  school may find themselves  without teachers and tutorial  support as early as next week.  On Thursday afternoon, the  Vancouver elementary and secondary teachers' associations,  which include correspondence  teachers for Coast students, will  vole on whether to escalate job  action in rejecting the Vancouver School Board's contract  offer.

Yellow Pages*  Regional Correspondence  School, encompassing lhe Sunshine Coast and Squamish, has  more than 6,000 students in  senior secondary programs, programs which include everything  from Latin and Russian studies  to trigonometry, calculus and  language arts.  At issue is the teachers' associations request for a mediator  in its current contract negotiation*,, a request the board haa  refused.  Although a media blackout is  in place, Vancouver Senior  Teachers' Association president,  Ellen Smith, explained some of  the teachers' concerns.  "Our basic issues revolve  around mainstreaming and integration services (for special  needs students). It seems whenever budgets are cut, these programs are affected first.  "In our last collective agreement we were unable to have  those special needs support,  'non-enrolled' leachers included. We are looking for a commitment in the collective agreement lo maintain those positions. Class sizes are also an  issue.  "We want to look al Ihe numbers of students who are being  mainstreamed into regular classrooms. Currently, only two are  allowed, but because of other  contract wording, we can see as  many as six special needs students integrated into a class."  Added Smith: "Non-enrolled  teachers are teaching, and allied  professional support staff such  as speech pathologists, counsellors, psychologists, learning  assistant teachers and  teacher/librarians. We want lo  ensure Ihose support services  remain for the population they  serve.  "Vancouver has a significant  number of special needs students who are mainstreamed.  Many of them are here because  of the kinds of programs we  offer."  Teachers are also upset over  a salary freeze for the two-year  duration of the contract. "That is  not on line with other Lower  Mainland districts which have  already settled," said Smith.  "We are looking at district settlements which compete with us  for teaching staff, like New  Westminster, or Maple Ridge. I  can't speak for the way the  membership will vote, but it  doesn't look promising."  If the issues aren't resolved,  job action escalation would be  initiated with a week of rotating  strikes, followed by all-out  strike action.  BC and southern Ontario  have the largest populations of  students in correspondence education, with more than 20,000  enrolled students nationwide.
