 F  ��8��'-��veL.brary  J*��n.entBui|^gs  V,����"'..B.c.v8v8X4  90.8  hears  u. ���    . roposal for Gospel Rock  by Elba Frith  Controversial By-Law  555-28, 1990, concerning the  rezoning of 78 acres of land  situated above Gospel Rock was  recommended for recall by  council al the April 10 Planning  Committee meeting and a further public hearing based on  new information submitted by  developer Hayden Killam was  proposed for April 30. The  recall issue will be decided at the  April 17 council meeting.  The by-law was originally  defeated by council at second  reading April 3.  In addressing council at last  week's Planning Committee  meeting, Sechelt lawyer Michael  Welsh, speaking for Killam,  said that because a number of  misunderstandings needed correcting and further information  was required by both the town  and the public, a recall of the  by-law amendment was requested.  Killam's plans are "not to  build on the promontory  itself," Welsh said, adding that  Killam had written a letter of  apology to council for his  remarks at last week's meeting.  "We are asking that the bylaw amendment be recalled so  that we may answer these concerns and, together with the  town, work toward a rezoning  and eventual development of  the property for the good of  all," Welsh said.  In his report to council,  Town Planner Rob Buchan said  further information had been  presented to him in a meeting  with Killam and Welsh held that  morning which justified, in his  opinion, a re-examination of  ihe rezoning issue.  "We have now received two  supplementary and crucial  pieces of correspondence: (a) a  letter from the registered owner  of the subject property, Valen  tine Lands Corporation, signed  by its authorized signatory  Frederick J. Child, dated April  6, appointing Mr. Hayden  Killam as agent 'with authority  to negotiate and effect any and  all aspects of obtaining approval for rezoning and subdivision of the properties', and (b) a  semi-formal application for  subdivision from Valentine  Lands authorizing Killam as  agent - which when completed,  will enable the municipality to  deal with the all-important  aspect of park dedication before  the confirmation of the rezoning," Buchan told council.  This additional authority  which Killam did not possess  until April 6, Welsh said,  "allows us to make this presentation to council." .'  The new 10-page submission,  which also comprises relevant  enclosures and site plan, is  divided into a number of sec-  dent to handle any additional  traffic of the proposed subdivision."  According to the submission,  Gower Point Road compares  "for purposes of visability, winding nature and general width",  to the portion of Marine Drive  in West Vancouver from the  3100 Block to Horseshoe Bay,  which services some 29,000 to  30,000 homes.  As to the proposed density of  the subdivision, although the  submission argues it is "entirely  consistent with that of the area  surrounding", it is suggested:  "As a sign of our good faith  in this respect, we propose, in  accordance with Section  21S(lXc) of the Land Title Act,  that, at subdivision stage, the  town and the owner enter into a  covenant permitting subdivision  only on condition that the  average lot size on Block 7 be  9000 square feet."  tions addressing "the major  points of concern and outlining  the significant aspects" of the  proposed subdivision.  On the issues of water,  sewage facilities and storm  drainage, the submission sum-  merizes the conclusions of a  November 15, 1989, report  from the town's engineers,  Dayton and Knight: "Fortunately because of the  geographic location of the area,  all work can be staged to suit  need and requirements."  Dayton and Knight recommend costs for installing all  three facilities be borne by the  developer.  In regard to access to the  development, the submission  concludes:  "...lhat the Gower Point  Road access, with appropriate  re-surfacing and some  upgrading will, together with  the access from Chaster Road  and Rosamund Road, be suffi-  In his recommendations to  council, Buchan states the  above proposal be, in fact,  "registered against title of the  property prior to third reading  of the subject zoning by-law,  assuming its passage through a  public hearing."  The proposed donation of  land for public park, including  Gospel Rock itself and the area  around the established eagle tree  which Killam suggests should be  set aside as an "eagle  sanctuary", totals, in the new  submission, approximately 6.54  acres or close to 13-and-a-half  per cent of the property being  subdivided.  The eagle sanctuary, comprising approximately 1.37  acres, could be deeded, the submission suggests, to a society incorporating people interested in  maintaining a preserve for the  eagles, "perhaps similar in principle to the Sechelt Marsh Society."

Discussion  at the meeting, which was attended by about 60 people,  revolved around the functions  of the new group.  It was suggested the new  association could act as an umbrella organization for all other  " community groups within the  boundaries of the District of  Sechelt. Jim Bayles, acting as  spokesman, reminded the audience the boundaries of Sechelt  enclose West Sechelt, Sunshine  Heights, Tuwanek, Sandy  Hook, the Village, Selma Park,  Davis Bay and Wilson Creek.  "We're not here to criticize  council," he said. "We're here  to monitor all sorts of civic activity and'report back to the  electorate. We're here to look at  anything that concerns the  quality of life in Sechelt,  whether it comes out of Ottawa  or out of the local council."  The new group will be open  to all residents and will not be  limited to property owners.  Possible subjects for discussion  will be municipal planning and  spending, Block 7, promotion  of candidates at election time  and any other issue affecting the  District.  "I think this is a very progressive thing provided the  association is constructive,"  commented Mayor Tom  Meredith. Replying to questions  from the audience about recent  expenditures by council, he  went on to say, "The premise  that you go from a community  of about 1200 to over 5000  without having additional staff  is nuts...the staff is working  under dreadful conditions. We  desperately need more space."  He went on to outline plans  for the proposed municipal  complex on Block 7 which  would include a new municipal  hall, new quarters for the  library, an amalgamation of  other government offices and  possibly a seniors' hall and a  pool.  "We're looking at financing  now," he went on. "Technically it could be done without going to referendum but morally,  in my mind, we'd be bound  to."  It was decided the new  association would have a nine  member Board of Directors.  Seven members elected at the  meeting were: Nancy McLarty,  Jim Bayles, Jim Wildonson,  Norm Hookes, Georgina Sager,  Dave Hartman and Ken Short.  It was expected that two additional members will come from  the Sechelt Indian Government  District and one of the other existing community groups.  More changes seen needed  Hew rules for Islands Trust  by Leiani Anthony  The Island Trust took some  giant steps toward regional  district status April 1 when new  legislation came into effect, but  Chairman Nick Gilbert claimed  there were still greal strides to  be made.  Gilbert also blasted Socred  cabinet ministers for their lack  of action on island concerns.  "This is a very, very important day...a big step forward,  after years of tremendous effort," Gilbert told the Ramada  Inn meeting.  The new act permits the trust  to set staffing levels, determine  policy and establish budget and  spending priorities. It provides  for a trust fund to accept donations of land or money.  Gilbert said the new legislation would ensure the trust continues as a stronger, more effective form of government, but he  said the toll to achieve that goal  has been high.  "Why are our forests continuing to come down at an unprecedented rate? Why are toxic  wastes being dumped in the sea?  Why are our hillsides eroding?  Why is there no consultation on  location of ferry terminals and  major changes to the highways  system?  "We have been given the  mandate to preserve and protect  these islands, yet the power to  do so still eludes islanders," he  said.  "The trust area is a fragile  ecosystem, a treasure...if the  trust is going to succeed there  must be more assistance from  all levels of government."  Gilbert rapped the province  for not sending more representatives to the meeting, but  Finance Minister Mel Couve-  lier, who did attend, took issue  with the criticism saying as a  senior minister, he represented  government at all levels. MLA  Terry Huberts was also present.  Couvelier said the government had been very supportive  of Ihe trust and would continue  to be. He would not divulge any  details in the upcoming budget  but said there will be financial  support for the trust.  Since its inception the trust  has been non-partisan and supported by both sides of the  house, he noted, yet the new  legislation 'has been brought  forward by this administration'.  He added, "You only get  sensitive answers to local issues  when you get government down  to the local level."  MLA Huberts said the Island  Trust, "Is a shining example of  achievements in planning and  preservation of a unique region  ofBC.  "I understand the importance  of quality of life and the desire  to preserve a particular lifestyle,  I also understand the value of  our natural environment and  sensible economic development.  "The people of the Island  Trust share these ideals... 15  years ago these kinds of concerns led them to call for better  management of their region."  He said restructuring the trust  and establishing a new trust  fund would 'increase and ensure  its effectiveness'.  The new Island Trust Act  gives the trust more autonomy.  More opportunity to make independent decisions. It means  local bylaws will end at the  trustee level and not have to go  through the ministry.

Violations  Environment Minister John Reynolds brought 14 charges  against Howe Sound Pulp and Paper last week, resulting  from an investigation at Port Mellon conducted between May  27,1989 and May 31,1989.  A further five charges were laid under the federal Fisheries  Act.  The allegations Involve violations of HSPP's waste  management permits, and the discharge of pulp mill effluent  into the environment.  Correction  There was an error in last week's front page story in regard  to Gospel Rock.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler's statement should have read,  "It b not in the community's interest to adopt the rezoning  by-hw."

It knew and welcomed the  new life which people brought to the Land. It felt the pain  when mere men���blind, foolish moments in the ancient-  ness of the Land���cut down and burned out the trees to  make space in which to breed their folly," wrote consummate word-erafter Stephen Donaldson.  Our folly. Yours and mine. Each day we destroy that  from which we derive our existence; each one of us blindly  believing someone else must take responsibility for the  holes in Ihe ozone, the poison in our waters, the death of  other life forms in the name of progress.  Sooner or later it will be your child or my grandchild,  who will be diagnosed wilh skin cancer, bone cancer, lung  cancer or who knows whal. Your grandchild, my great  grandchild who will ask, "What did a porpoise look like?  Are Ihey just a fairytale?" Or, "Were there really trees  three feet in diameter?"  Politicians, the most immovable, conservative element  of our society, are scrambling to enact and enforce legislation which will compel us to accept personal responsibility  for the damage we are doing lo our source of life.  The court case brought against Exxon for the Valdez  disaster, the charges last week against Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper (HSPP), were, in a very real sense, the  government's way of saying, "We can't make the individuals who work for you behave responsibly. You  have to do it. And if you don't, it will cost you."  Bill Hughes, president of HSPP, has repeatedly stated  his commitment to reducing the pollution from the Port  Mellon mill, but somehow he has failed to communicate  his commitment to his employees.  In 1985, the regional district attempted to implement a  recycling program of modest proportions. It failed and  was cancelled in the first year due to public opposition.  Our main landfill site on the Sunshine Coast was given  an estimated lifespan of 15 years in 1988. That was  calculated on the basis of 1.2 kilograms of garbage per day  coming from a population of 15,500, increasing 2.5 per  cent per year.  The actual increase has far surpassed that figure. Unless  Coast residents voluntarily follow a recycling program, we  will soon be facing public hearings about where to locate  the next dump.  Perhaps we should introduce legislation now which prohibits anyone from speaking at that public hearing unless  they can produce evidence of their participation in the  recycling program.  April 22 has been declared Earth Day, a day to take personal action and made a commitment to saving the environment. If taken seriously, there jusi might be an Earth  Day in the year 2000. Should we succeed, this should be  declared an international holiday.  S YEARS AQO  The Sunshine Coast Regional District began its push  for recycling. "We have to be wholehearted about this,"  said chairman of the board, Jim Gurney. "If people don't  see us as committed to succeeding, the plan won't  work. This isn't a trial of recycling, but a year in which to  find out costs and to iron out the wrinkles. This will give  us a good handle on what we can do next year."  10 YEARS AQO  "There is still hope for society as long as we are turning the sod for buildings of higher learning." Those were  the words spoken by Mayor Boucher of Sechelt as he  turned over the ceremonial sod to mark the beginning of  work on Capilano College.  20 YEARS AQO  Pratt Road residents, now on an old water line insufficient to carry present loads, have demanded that the  regional board do something about it.  30 YEARS AQO  Sechelt Peninsula Board of Trade has set up a fund to  assist the families of the six members of the Morrison  Logging Company lost in Sechelt Inlet in a storm. Winds  from the southeast funnelled through the inlet and the  boat in which the six men were attempting to get home  was found floating partially submerged.  40 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Volunteer Firemen under Fire Chief Ernie  Baker are hiring a bus in which to travel to Calgary to view  the world famous Calgary Stampede.  An ad in the Coast News asks: "Where does the  money go?" It is sponsored by Imperial Oil and tells us  that bringing us oil is a big job and a costly one.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  1 year M5; 6 months 120; Foreign; t ytir $40  Down from tho mountain  Yogi bear meets mankind  by Sam Moses  Yogi was a friend of mine. I  realize it's not the most original  name for a bear but if you had  met him I think you would  agree the name was fitting, in  that he was quite the character.  We met one night when some  friends and I were sitting  around the firepit out back of  the not-yet-completed cabin.  We each sat on alder rounds,  which serve as good chairs keeping you a good height off the  ground to best benefit the heat  from the fire.  Trouble was, with the firelight directly in our eyes, we  couldn't see much at ground  level. Just how long he had been  sitting there, I have no idea. But  between me and the fellow next  to me, I caught the glint of  reflected firelight in a baby  black bear's eyes.  He jusi sat .there staring, iwo  the fire until he realized we Jlad  suddenly'stopped talking and  focused our attention on him.  He looked at each of us in turn  but showed no signs of fear or  leaving and because of his size,  we weren't exactly afraid of him  either.  Then, all of a sudden, I got  one of those rushes like one  might get just after they've slipped and almost fallen off a  cliff...where's the little guy's  mother? Inspite of the fact we  all lunged at him doing  everything we could to scare  him away, he still wouldn't run  but rather walked up the hill  behind us, stopping repeatedly  looking back like a little kid  whose best friend just moved  off the block.  The second time I had an encounter with Yogi was a short  time later when I'd put together  a makeshift steam bath. It was a  clear plastic affair I put right  beside the tent, so upon completion of my bath I could dive into  the tent with the campstove, so  as not to freeze my essentials  off.  While I was steaming away  and just beginning to enjoy it,  through the clouded plastic I  V "Could see something black stick-  * ing out of the tent door. Peeling  ' back the plastic I saw the  ". familiar backside of a baby  black bear.  I said something to the effect  of, "Hey what the hell do you  think you're..." but I didn't  finish for rather than backing  out, Yogi chose to bolt forward.  The tent started moving around  with everything in it. Then all at  once it stopped.  Looking in the crack between  the flaps of the tent door, I saw  the little bear looking back at  me tilting his head first one  way then the other.  I folded back one of the flaps  and said, "Well...come on."  And he shot out like a bullet  and was gone. I realized then  that more than likely Yogi's  mother had just left him,  shooed him up a tree and probably one of the first things he  saw upon coming down was a  bunch of guys chewing the fat  around a campfire.  ...to be continued  Heaven and Earth  How long shall men deny the flower  Because Its roots are In the earth,  And crave with tears from God the dower  They have, and have despised as dearth,  And scorn as low their human lot.  With frantic pride, too blind to see  That standing on the head makes not  Either for ease or dignity!  But fools shall feel like fools to find  (Too late Informed) that angels' mirth  Is one In cause, and mode, and kind  With that which they profaned on earth.  Coventry Patmore  Slings and Arrows  A very historic canal  by George Matthews  Remember the story in Conrad's Heart of Darkness? The  protagonist travels up river into  the interior of 19th century  Africa in search of a 'gone  native' trading company rep  named Kurtz.  When he finds Kurtz, he  finds a dark, savage, metaphorical hell - the heart of darkness.  In Washington, DC, the heart  of darkness isn't up river, nor is  it up the canal. The heart of  darkness of the C&O Canal is in  the southeast corner of the  District of Columbia near the  Anacostia River only four or  five miles east of where the  canal begins.  Unlike Conrad's story, a  journey up the canal is a  journey away from poverty,  cruelty, savagery and murder.  In fact, a journey up the canal is  an escape from the heart of  darkness to a place where country folk welcome strangers,  where wilderness is protected  from the greed of those who  would get rich by selling what  belongs to others and where the  best of self-reliance, strength of  character and standards of conduct reside.  Back in the 19th century  when canals were a popular  mode of transport, the C&O  Canal was linked with a shorter  canal to the east, known as the  Washington Canal. As the city  grew, the old canal became a  dump site for raw sewage, dead  livestock, and various other unsanitary waste.  The swampy bottom land  was a breeding ground for  malaria-carrying mosquitoes  even without the canal, and it  soon became clear that either  the canal or the people would  have to go.  The canal was paved over  and became Constitution  Avenue which now runs west to  east from near the Watergate  complex, where the C&O Canal  used to join the Potomac River,  down to the Capitol.  Part way down Constitution  Avenue on the left, is the White  House and on the far side of the  White House is Lafayette Park.  Lafayette Park is directly across  the street from the front entrance to the house where President Bush lives.  If he were to look across the  street from his front door, he'd  see a lovely green park filled  with statues and beautiful old  trees. On the lawns of Lafayette  Park, he'd see any time, night  or day, several lumps of rags  each one marking the location  of a homeless citizen or a silent  protester against one government policy or another.  A couple of weeks ago one  poor homeless soul murdered  another, right there in Lafayette  Park under the eyes of the  President. It wasn't reported  whether the President happened  to be looking out of his window  at the time.  Back over on Constitution  Avenue where the Washington  Canal used to be, three or four  miles directly east is a section of  town which is truly in the heart  of darkness. In and around that  area of town is where the majority of the poverty, unemployment and crime occurs.  It is reported to be an area of  almost total fear and hopelessness. To put the extent of the  crime into some perspective,  virtually all murders in  Washington take place in one  quadrant of the Federal District. The size of the Federal  District is 10 miles by 10 miles,  excluding a large chunk that the  State of Virginia reclaimed in  1846.  The total population of the  District spread over the 80 or so  square miles is estimated to be  less than 650,000. The heart of  the darkness is maybe 20 square  miles. Last year there were more  than 400 people murdered in the  District. Again, to put this in  perspective, in all of Canada  last year, there were a few more  than 500 murders.  But the canal and the river  leave this heart of darkness  behind and take the hiker, the  runner, the cyclist, the canoeist,  out into the beautiful Maryland-Virginia countryside. Out  here, the people are hikers,  fishermen, outdoors people,  people concerned with the need  to keep the Maryland-Virginia  recreational areas free of  development and pollution. Out  here is the heart of enlightenment.  One example of this enlightened humanism can be  found in the story of how the  recreational lands associated  with the old canal were saved.  Back in the early 1950s, this  towpath was almost lost to  creeping development, general  lack of interest and inadequate  maintenance.  When developers proposed  that land adjacent to the river  be i V ped, the well-known  Ii! .rai, environmentalist and  humanist, Supreme Court  Justice William O. Douglas,  challenged some eastern  seaboard newspaper people to  walk the 184 miles of the canal's  towpath in order to publicize its  recreational potential.  A two-week walk, recreated  annually in recognition of the  original, resulted in such an interest in the recreational value  of the old canal, that development was forced to a halt. In  1961, the entire 184-mile strip  was declared a national monument.  It should be mentioned here  before leaving the subject that  there is another kind of heart of  darkness a way out on the canal  towpath.  About 150 miles northeast of  the Georgetown terminus,  around lock number 62 is the  Paw Paw Tunnel. Mote than  150 years ago hundreds of Irish  and German immigrant workers  tunnelled over half a mile  through solid rock so that the  canal could go on its way up to  Cumberland.  It's said that when the hiker is  half way through the unlit tunnel the silence and the darkness  are almost unbearable. But this  is a darkness with light at both  ends - surely not what Conrad  had in mind.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  v TaeP    Mp^^m.

Are we getting so cold that there  is no concern left for our elderly, stroke and heart attack victims and terminally ill and  paraplegics?  These people have been hardworking, loving, caring people  all their lives, and now are  struck down and forgotten.  Forgotten by our government  who chooses to ignore the long  strike of our Home Support  Workers.  Home Support Workers are a  competent group of people who  have chosen a very dedicated  field of caring for the disabled.  These people are trained and  have attended seminars, taken  courses in first aid, long term  care, nutrition, personal care,  bathing and hygiene.  These workers are trained to  handle patients at all levels of  disability. They are trained and  able to give baths, change adult  diapers, empty bowel bags,  urine bags, all in the privacy of  the person's own home.  Home Support Workers deal  with  all  the  hardships  and  unpleasantness that come with  being disabled. Cleaning up  after diarrhea, weak bladders,  doing the laundry, and house  cleaning. A job most people  could not cope with.  The Home Support Workers  also pick up mail, pay bills,  shop, do dishes, cook, and of  course, provide emotional support for many who are alone.  As many people with strokes  soon find out, friends quickly  forget them and stop coming  by. Home Support Workers  may be the only contact to the  outside world. All this, yet some  are receiving a wage of only  $5.91 per hour.  Others dedicated many years  to their job and are only getting  $8.10 per hour. Isn't the job  they do worth more than this?  It's a degrading disgrace to  pay such hardworking people  such a low wage for the important work they do. Most of  these workers are women, many  with families to support and  bills to pay.  People are willing to pay  higher wages for general house  cleaning in their homes than our  Make '90 Grad great  Editor;  The parents of Elphinstone  Secondary Grads of 1990 are  endeavouring to give our kids  an evening they will remember  for a lifetime.

Committees are busy  organizing their recruits.  Queen's pageant contestants are  meeting with the sponsors.  We are all very excited about  the upcoming 'dry' celebrations.

Gwen Koftinoff  1990 Sea Cavalcade  Chairman  Let's make it easy  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Mayor Strom & Councillors:  I read with interest an article  in the April 2 Coast News  regarding the GLMA's plans  for a 'pedestrian friendly'  Lower Gibsons. I have only one  difficulty with the plan: The 90  degree parking idea.  Indeed, I have always  thought that even the angle  parking presently in place  discourages leisurely pedestrian  activity.  It is decidedly 'unfriendly',  pedestrian and business-wise, to  have a narrow sidewalk butted  with car bumpers. It impedes  the view from the street of a  whole row of storefronts (which  SAY  THANK YOU  TO YOUR  SECRETARY  Send the FTD��  Secretaries Week  Bouquet. $20.00  Secretaries Week is  April 22-28.

The parking lot look of the  east side of Gower Point Road  between School Road and the  'quay' does nothing to let  pedestrians know there is even a  sidewalk there, let alone encourage them to walk on it.  Exiting one's parking spot is  not a particularly safe  manoeuvre, either.  If the GLMA truly wants to  make the street 'pedestrian  friendly', then there should be  less storefront parking instead  of more. (Widening that east  sidewalk could be in future  plans).  Couldn't we encourage people (through the use of high  visibility signs) to use the quay  for parking? Many folks don't  even know it's there. If we want  people to walk through Lower  Gibsons, let's make is easy and  enjoyable for them to do so.

Earth Day 1990 presents  an opportunity for people  around the world to express  their concern and commitment  to preservation and regeneration of the fragile planet.  This is the 20th anniversary  of the original Earth Day with  over 100 countries and more  than 100 million people planning events around the world to  educate and activate the global  commons to commit to saving  the endangered earth.  Earth Day 1970 resulted in  the enactment of the US Clean  Air Act and the formation of  the US Environmental Protection Agency. Your participation  in this year's event will send a  clear message to local, regional  and federal politicians that individual commitment by Canadians must be translated into  further political policy and action, here and abroad.

Wilson asked  board members to officially request the provincial government  return to the bargaining table in  the dispute with the Sunshine  Coast Home Support Workers.  "We've found on the Sunshine Coast," he said, "many  seniors are suffering due to the  government's intransigence."  What makes this labour  dispute unusual, in Wilson's  eyes, is the unfortunate situation for home support workers  on the Coast.  "The difficulty is, because  this is such a small group, hidden on ihe Sunshine Coast out  of sight of the media, that a  group of women is out there  picketing and they haven't got a  prayer of being heard," he told  the meeting.  Gibsons Alderman Jerry Dixon asked, "Isn't this strike  province-wide?"  Wilson replied that all home  support workers aren't with the  same unions, some have signed  and others have a different contract under dispute. In addition  to the problem of the Sunshine  Coast group being relatively  small, he pointed out, there are  extraordinarily different working conditions for the women  working here.  "There's a big difference,"  he said, "between the home  support worker who is caring  for an elderly client in Egmont  and one who is working in Kerrisdale close to a wide variety of  support service."  The board voted unanimous  ly to write a letter, "...urging  the government to return to the  bargaining table with a fair  wage settlement."  Wilson also asked individual  board members to take the time  to write letters, make phone  calls and stop by the picket line  to show their support to "the  women who are increasingly  suffering from a serious morale  problem."  Tuwanek Ratepayers get support for  Mount Richardson wilderness proposal  A proposal by the Tuwanek  Ratepayers Association (TRA),  which would see 11 square  kilometres of Mount Richardson protected as a wilderness  area, received unexpected support from a Ministry of Forests  feasibility study discussed at last  week's joint meeting of the  Foreshore Advisory Task Force  (FATF) and the Forestry Advisory Committee (FAC).  Mark Battersby, TRA  spokesman at the meeting,  presented a slide show illustrating the rare beauty of the  south and west faces of the  mountain.  The groups' written submission reads, "It is a ruggedly  beautiful area seen for many  kilometres throughout Sechelt  and the Inlet. Its steepness, having made logging the slopes too  difficult and costly, has allowed  it to survive intact at a time and  in a location where little that is  pristine remains.  "As a wilderness area for  people it is exceptional. There  are no roads. It is accessible, but  _ its own terms..."  "The association was seeking  support from the FATF and  FAC, both committees of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District, as outlined in the provincial guidelines for wilderness  designation applications. It has  already received endorsement  from Sechelt Municipal District  Council for the idea.  One possible objection to Ihe  proposal would likely come  from Jackson Brothers Logging, which holds timber  harvesting rights in the area.  However, at last Tuesday's  meeting, Forest Service  Representative Barry Mountain, offered newly received information from a feasibility  studied recently completed on  the proposed logging.  According to the study,  which Mountain said would not  be released to the public, only  five cut blocks totalling 43 hectares were identified as possible  logging sites. The total possible  volume from these areas would  amount to 14,000 cubic metres.  Mountain also said the study  discounts the possibility of road  construction_[��_��5<gQ��_ve 'he  timber as being uneconomical".  This  does  not  preclude,  he  : Province takes over  i Irvines Landing Marina  The federal government has  , turned over control of the Irvines Landing wharf to the pro-  , vincial   Ministry   of  Crown  : Lands and that agency is currently reviewing the terms of a  leasing arrangement with the Irvines Landing Marina.  At the last meeting of the  regional board, directors  reviewed the special terms of the  lease and voted to endorse  them.  Under the terms, special pro-  ' tection will be offered to ensure  the public's access to and use of  the wharf. A total 160 feet of  �� moorage will have to be left as  'transient   moorage'  with  no  'charges for 30 minutes or less.  Further, the ministry will flag  the file so that any assignment  ' of the lease will result in the file  being sent to the field staff (at  the regional board offices) to be  reviewed.  Area A resident Jay Hamburger questioned the reasons  for the transfer of the wharf  from federal to provincial  jurisdiction.  Director Gordon Wilson said  that the federal government,  "...is trying to get rid of all  these small wharves..." He told  Hamburger it is preferable to  have the wharf under the protection of the provincial government, and therefore, owned by  'the people' than to have it  simply abandoned or privately  owned.  Upon further questioning,  Wilson acknowledged there are  rumours regarding similar plans  for the government wharf in  Madeira Park.  "The word is in the wind,"  he said. "But we will be sending  a clear message to the government that we would oppose any  such move with the Madeira  Park wharf."  Maritime concerns  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  Historical Society (SCMHS) has  addressed those concerns expressed by Gibsons Council at  the March 27 Committee of the  Whole meeting in a letter to the  town dated April 6.  Included with the letter,  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine  Goddard told the April 10 Planning Committee meeting, were:  a revised time-line plan for the  construction activities on the  park site; the Discovery project  logo as intended to be used at  the Gibsons park site; a copy of  the Insurance Bond to show  coverage of repairs in the event  the project halts prematurely; a  declared  intention to replace  trees by number on park site  and the projected vessel bookings for 1992.  Council hesitated to give its  full approval April 10 because  of the absence of Alderman  John Reynolds who has been  the principal negotiator of the  lease with the SCMHS.  The matter is slated for the  April 17 council meeting.  jfcigie Anew  spirit of  giving  A luttoful program t�� cncixirigr giving  ���"nd volunteering  pointed oul, the possibility of  helicopter logging which would  raise the question of where to  dump the logs.  The committees agreed to  have regional district staff explore the proposal and compile  a report regarding its possible  affect on zoning and other  elements under the jurisdiction  of the regional government.  Once a proposal for a  wilderness area designation  receives local support, it is considered by the regional forestry  office. That department  priorizes submissions and refers  them to the Provincial Forest  Service where a long, involved  review process takes place  before any decision is made on a  designation.  In his conclusion, Mark Battersby told the meeting that  although Mount Richardson  may not appear to be what is  traditionally considered  wilderness, because of its  visibility and proximity to  civilization, it does qualify  under the criteria set out in the  provincial government's policy  framework for managing  wilderness in provincial forests.

CARE HOME  Do you know anyone you  would nominate for election to  the Board of the Kiwanis Care  Home?  Elections come in May. The  care facility requires and  deserves an able and interested  board to tend the affairs of our  very senior citizens.  Do consider this community  service.  NOTED NEWSMAN  A news clipping of an article  by Charles Lynch that has appeared in Ontario newspapers  recently tells of a visit to thej  Sunshine Coast entitled Report  from Paradise.  This year the Kiwanis Village  Care Home will be celebrating  its 10th anniversary. A special  tea is being planned for April  28.  Over the past ten years this  group of dedicated and hard  working women held many  fundraising activites to provide  comforts for the residents of the  care home.  Shortly after the facility was  opened it was recognized that a  van suitable for transporting  wheelchair residents and others  was necessary. This van would  provide the means for outings  that would enhance the lifestyles  of the residents.  It was a huge task to raise the  money but with enthusiasm and  hard work this project was completed in a very short time.  The van is used regularly and  enjoyed by the residents of the  care home with weekly outings,  special trips to places of interest  in town and the surrounding  areas. It will even be used in the  Sea Cavalcade Parade. This is  all thanks to the auxiliary  members.  Many other special projects  have been undertaken over the  10 years. Money raised by the  group has gone to purchase a  stereo system for the home,  special wheelchairs, an activity  kitchen for the residents' use,  patio and outdoor furniture,  cozy lamps and tables for the  lounge, and many more too  numerous to mention.  Trees for  Earth Day  The students at Gibsons  Elementary have been learning  about trees and their role in our  environment. The Grade 7 class  of Ms Duncan participated in  digging up the 20 plus Douglas  Fir trees needed for the school's  Arbour Day project. The trees  were donated by Gail Preston.  On April 10 the whole school  was involved in planting a row  of Douglas Fir trees along the  school yard next to Highway  101'.

COVERING THE SUNSHINE COAST FOR OVER A GENERATION  Swvmt Agencw cmpim  Sunnycrest Mill, Gibsons  IE7  CkiDopkimi  NOTARY PUBLIC  886-2000  j4M    ma    '  Continued from page 1  -The total value of dedicated  land, Welsh says, is approximately $950,000.  The area owned by Child but  not jart of the rezoning at this  time, includes most of the land  above Gower Point Road and  below the crest of the escarpment. The site plan designates  this \ portion for "future  development".  The submission also addresses the issues of the subdivision's non-adherence to the  Official Community Plan (arguing Rl zoning is the lowest  possible alternative to the present R4 zoning) and the  suitability of the site for  development.  An October 31, 1989, report  from consulting engineers SRK-  Robinson Inc. stales: "In  general, the property is sound  from the view of geotechnical  engineering".  However, the submissison  states: "Every effort will be  made during development to  maintain the natural growth  and ambience of the property,  including, the arbutus trees,  evergreens, mossy rock area,  natural undergrowth and aged  rock faces."  The development is expected  to evolve over a 10 year period,  Welsh said (ltd provide "some  $30 million to the local  economy in the next five to 10  years."  "I am very pleased with the  proposals put before us and the  items it addresses," Mayor  Diane Strom said.  Buchan agreed but "for a few  small changes" including a concern regarding the sactuary based solely on the existence of  eagles. He suggested it be deemed ��� "nature reserve" instead.  The members of the auxiliary  have two main fundraising  functions each year: the  Christmas Bazaar and the Summer Berry Tea.  They are very grateful to all  those who support them on  these two occasions.  Several members of the auxiliary take great pride in helping  the residents in other ways.  Residents' birthdays are  remembered by having fresh  flowers brought to the home on  the actual birthday of each resident. Birthday corsages are  presented to each person at the  monthly birthday party and on  occasion the auxiliary has  helped by providing entertainment at the parties.  A get well card is sent to each  resident when they are in  hospital and special seasonal  decorations are provided for the  home in the form of flower arrangements, special napkins,  balloons and streamers to mark  the special days throughout the  year.  Several members of the group  assist the residents by doing  their shopping each week. This  is a real boon to those people  who do not have families to  help them in this way.  There are also members of  the auxiliary who visit the Care  Home regularly in their capacity  as friendly visitors. They make  a special point of visiting those  who do not have families.  Recently the auxiliary purchased two personal emergency  response systems for use by the  care home. This is a very hard  working group of people who  are looking forward to their  special anniversary celebration  tea.  The residents, their families,  plus all past members and the  Kiwanis Club will be joining  them on this occasion. A painting by a local artist will be  presented by the auxiliary to  grace the lounge of the home.  We congratulate this group  on its 10th anniversary and wish  ihem good luck in the future.

The regular monthly meeting  of our branch will be held in our  hall starting at 1:30 pm on April  19. What a treat it would be for  the officers and the workers of  the branch to see at least a hundred chairs occupied on that  specific day.  I would venture to suggest  that maybe only 10 per cent of  our members are aware of how  close their fellow members are  coming to fulfilling a dream of  some eight or 10 years work on  our new building. Granted there  has not been a great deal of  discussion other than the  reports that are given at our  meeting, but the wheels are turning and we will have a new activity centre. Your support and  your attendance at meetings is  necessary to help secure this  goal.  1 would suggest that all non-  believers take a guess at the present total assets of the branch  including property and government grants and see how close  you are. With a concerted effort  by ALL members the dream  by Bev Cranston, 886-1215  Is Roberts Creek really  becoming a 'Surrey by the Sea'?  Surrey was once a beautiful  rural area, but without proper  planning quickly became a  vinyl-sided, square-box mega-  subdivision. The beautiful little  farms quickly subdivided and  cleared themselves for the  almighty buck, and an overflowing population of young  families from Vancouver and  Burnaby.  I have heard more than a  couple of people from Roberts  Creek and elsewhere on the  Coast refer to this area as Surrey by the sea. You don't need  to look very hard to see that  Roberts Creek is definitely  growing population-wise.  The corner in the heart of  Roberts Creek is a plugged mess  every day of the week. It is  downright dangerous to walk,  jog or ride a bike along Lower  Road with the traffic flying by  and volumes of dumptrucks  hauling fill and logs.  Heavy clearing is going on  everywhere. A friend remarked  to me the other day, "What's  going on in the Creek? Lower  Road used to be bush." Is all  this downed timber merchantable or are these acreages being  divided and cleared due to demand, greed or maybe the  desire for more sun?  Even Joe Road is being  widened along with its curve being taken out. Along with the  widening the trees come down.  Is this really necessary? Do we  really need a straight wide  racetrack to connect the  highway and Lower Road?  When talking to the Coast  News, Area Manager of the  Department of Highways Art  Popp stated, "Roberts Creek  needs another grid road  (through road). Leek Road is  just too steep, so it was Joe  Road."  The reason for the trees coming down, according to Popp,  was because the department had  some extra money. But now  they will have to wait for more  funds to be able to pave the  widened road, possibly not until  1991.  When asked if any Joe  Roaders had complained about  the project,  he said "NO."  Popp also stated that there is a  definite problem in Roberts  Creek, in that motorists are  speeding too much, even on  sideroads, and the only solution  is to put up more road signs.  Treed and bushy areas harbour a lot of homes and feeding  areas for birds and small  animals. When we keep destroying these areas, we are taking away their habitats.  Think about it before you  drop that next tree. What are  you destroying?   Is  it  really  worth it?  BEACH MEETING  At a meeting held last week  for Roberts Creekers regarding  last summer's partying and vandalism on the beach at the  mouth of the creek, both the  RCMP and the Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department  members were on hand.  According to Chief Denis  Mulligan the meeting went very  well, no picking on any particular group went on, and in  his words it was "a good  meeting". He told the Coast  News that drinking, large fires  and harrassment of the local  residents is going to be "the  RCMP's problem". The public  is reminded that you are required to have a fire permit to  have a beach fire or it must be  below the high water line on the  rocks. The RCMP will be confiscating liquor if you are  caught drinking at the beach,  which is a public place.  Apparently one night last  summer there were over 200  people on the beach and they  caused a lot oi' damage from big  beach fires, lots of broken glass,  etc. but no houses were actually  vandalized. The fire department, when called, had to bring  out 25 firefighters, which totally  tied up the fire department.  If there had been a serious  fire call to a house, there could  have been a very bad problem  with the fire department being  unable to respond.  Chief Mulligan would like to  remind the public that fire permits are now required, for any  kind of burning, until October  of this year.

Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  Welcome fellow gardeners  and newcomers to the Coast.  Many ornamental flowering  t os and shrubs need pruning  immediately after flowering.  The forsythia in bloom now is a  good example. Pruning some or  most of the older branches back  close to the ground will result in  a spectacular fountain of gold  display each year.  If you have old wooden  planters, boxes and hanging  baskets, prepare them by soaking (if they're dirty) in bleach or  household disinfectant to  soften; then scrub, rinse well,  stack and dry. They can then be  treated wtih a wood preservative called 'copper naphthalene' obtainable at hardware  stores.  The label may say toxic to  plants, but once into the wood,  it's harmless. It takes a month.  A report from Agriculture  Canada, presented at a recent  BC Council of Garden Clubs  meeting, warned all gardeners  to be aware of a new garden  pest called 'European brown  garden snail', which has been  found to be a very serious orchard, greenhouse, nursery and  garden pest.  It eats leaves, flowers, fruit,  vegetables and oranmental  crops. Fully grown snails are 1.5  inches across, the shells are  yellow or yellow-brown with  decks or streaks.  Contact Agriculture Canada  at 666-4887 for more information.  The largest sunflower contest  for all children up to 12 years  old has started. The flowers can  be Pacific Giant or Russian  Giant. Encourage your child or  children to participate. Let them  do it themselves with your advice. Plant the sunflowers at the  back of a sunny garden, in a  loose, sandy soil. They take  about 100 days to mature.  More details later. Plant sale  soon. Happy gardening.  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting is in the Marine Room  on Thursday, April 19 at 7:30  pm. New members and guests  welcome.  The plant sale is on Saturday,  April 21 at Sunnycrest Mall's  front entrance. It begins at 9:30  am and good buys are available.  drop oft your  COAST NIW*  WHEN YOU BUY IT LET  US WRAP IT WITH  From now until Mother's Day, each time we wrap a gift  for you in one of our beautiful, new balloons, your name will  be entered in our draw.

Rob Buchan *  MUNICIPAL PLANNER AND APPROVING OFFICER  They managed the Garden Bay  Cafe during the early 1940s and  operated the Westview Hotel in  Powell River from 1947 to 1953,  The party was hosted by their  son H.D. (Cam) Cameron and  his wife Beverely at their home  in West Sechelt.

Budding student scientists in  Mr. Giesbrecht's Grade 4 class  at Cedar Grove Elementary are  planting gardens to experiment  with tomato seeds from space.  During the spring semester,  students will grow and monitor  space-exposed seeds and Earth-  based seeds, searching for differences caused by long-term  exposure to cosmic radiation.  Results gathered by the students  will be forwarded to NASA by  June 15 for a final report.  For nearly six years the seeds  were exposed to the harsh environment of space, subjected  to cosmic radiation, temperature extremes, weightlessness,  and the vacuum of space.  Students will be looking for  possible mutations to the  tomato plant, such as changes  in fruit size and colour, growth  rate, and leaf, stem, and stalk  shapes and sizes. The pink  grapefruit is a mutation  resulting from irradiating the  white grapefruit seed.  The Space Exposed Experiment Developed for Students  (SEEDS) was one of 57 experiments housed on the recently recovered 11-ton Long Dura-  lion Exposure Facility satellite.  After approximately a six-year  voyage in space, the 12.5  million tomato seeds were  rescued by the crew of the Space  Shuttle Columbia on January  12, 1990.  SEEDS is a cooperative project between NASA and Park  Seed Company, Greenwood,  SC, offering to students a one-  of-a-kind, hands-on experiment  to study the effects of long-term  space exposure on living tissue.  SEEDS has the potential to involve four million students and  40,000 educators.  In March, NASA distributed  180,000 SEEDS kits containing  space-exposed seeds and an  equal number of Earth-based  seeds to teachers from the upper  elementary school to the university level for experiments and  study.

Pender Patter  Changes in Egmont  by Ann Cook   863-9907  We seem to chug a long for  years without much change in  Egmont, then for some reason  people decide to make a move.  House trailers are popping up  like mushrooms in spring, right  in downtown Egmont. We now  have seven trailer homes within  yelling distance of each other.  There must be a message like,  "too expensive to build." Guy  Dowd, the Sheppards and the  Grahams are playing musical  houses, so I am pleased they  aren't leaving.  Egmont Marina's making a  change with lots of good byes  and hellos. What staff is leaving  and who is staying etc? I did  meet and welcome Diane and  Tommas McLaughlan from  Regina, Saskatchewan and wish  Spraying the roadsides  by Myrtle Winchester 863-9099  What looks like a very  peculiar greenish growth in  several locations along Highway  101 and Garden Bay Road is  merely evidence of the Department of Highways' hydro-  seeding project, and a  spokesman for the department  says the unnatural colour is  "not unusual" and is "nothing  important."  The strange green tinge apparently comes from the binders  and fertilizers used in the grass  seed that's being applied along  roadsides throughout the area.  Considering the close proximity  to Garden Bay's water supply  and several salmon spawning  creeks, we can assume these  green binders and fertilizers are  completely non-toxic. Hopefully.  Incidentally, this project is  being done by the Gibsons  Department of Highways office, not our local Capilano  Highways Services office in  Madeira Park.  LOGGING CONCERNS  In the wake of the Garden  Bay Lake protection by-law  public hearing, the South  Pender Harbour Waterworks  District trustees have distributed  a letter publicizing logging in  their watershed surrounding  McNeill Lake and are appealing  for public support in having the  watershed destruction stopped.  For more information call  883-2511 between 9 am and  noon on weekdays.  EXPANSION PLANS  Another letter: The Board of  Directors of the Pender Harbour and District Health Centre  Society recently announced  plans to expand our clinic on  Francis Peninsula Road and,  although most everyone agrees  that the expansion will be a  wonderful thing for Pender  Harbour, everyone also  wonders how much of a tax increase it will involve.  I wasn't around when the  hospital in Garden Bay was  relinquished to facilitate construction of St. Mary's in  Sechelt but it seems there was a  promise medical services would  not be lost in Pender Harbour.  IF that was the agreement, then  why was the clinic's original  construction at least partially  paid for by local taxes and why  must be proposed expansion involve more taxes?  BACK IN BUSINESS  Last week The Paper Mill  suffered a technological  meltdown. My reliable old  faithful Commodore 64 rolled  over and died, crashed and  burned, ceased to exist, ended.  Abruptly, with no explanation  or apology.  Theories include a virus from  a pirated program, a power  surge and death due to natural  causes - my computer was nearly 10 years old, and in computer  years (as compared to dog  years), it must have been several  hundred human years old and  ready to move on to another  astral plane or, for you atheists  in the crowd, cease to exist.  Although this seems sad  news, as I write this I am quite  elated, having just today acquired a brand new Amiga  system complete with a 20-meg  hard drive and state-of-the-art  desktop publishing software.

Creek    Oaktree Market ��� P. Harbour  Wilson senses the old fears  and apprehensions closing in on  him again. It is time to pull up  stakes once more. He sells the  10th Avenue store for a handsome profit and casts about for  new directions.  Remembering the first pleasant weeks in Australia, he buys  an old school bus in New  Westminster and converts it into another mobile home. He  christens the bus 'Wilsonia'.  Herb Wilson plans an extended and leisurely tour of the BC  Interior - an area he has long  wanted to explore. But it is still  too early in the year for such a  journey. He parks the bus on a  lot at the corner of Nelson and  Howe to wait for better  weather. One night there is  another knock on the door - this  time rather small and tentative.  It sounds anything but official.  Puzzled, Wilson opens the  door to reveal a slim well-  dressed woman in her middle  years. He eyes her quizzically.  "Is this caravan possibly for  sale?" she inquires.  Wilson has no intention of  selling his newly-acquired motor  home but something about the  woman strikes his fancy. He  feds a sudden urge to learn  more about her. "I hadn't  thought about it," he says, "but  if you'd like to step inside, we  could certainly discuss the matter."  The mysterious woman, obviously no shrinking violet,  enters the caravan without  hesitation. Herb Wilson offers  her a chair and a cup of coffee.  They begin to talk as though  they had known each other for  a long time. He is impressed by  her straightforward manner.  Her name she tells Wilson, is  Amelia. She was married and  has two daughters but is  presently living alone. She is a  landscape painter and an aspiring writer. She also plans to  travel through the United  States, but the caravan she now  owns is too small for this purpose. Wilson's roomy bus  would be much more suitable.  Herb Wilson offers scant information about his own lurid  background at this point, not  wanting to frighten Amelia off.  He is struck by the similarity of  their interests. "I might possibly  Birdwatch  by Tony Greenfield  During the month of April  about 40 species of birds will arrive on the Sunshine Coast.  Some will spend Ihe summer  here and others are migrating to  points further north. Most will  arrive after the 10th, with each  day bringing a new selection of  species.  Songbirds of many families  will reappear from their tropical  jungle wintering quarters:  thrushes, warblers, vireos and  flycatchers. Expect the warblers  to become common around the  15th with mixed flocks of  yellow-rumped, orange-crowned, black-throated grey and  Townshend's flitting through  the flowering broadleaf maples.  Another member of the family,  the yellow-throat will return to  its preferred habitat, cattail  marshes.  One morning between the  12th and 15th, white-crowned  and golden-crowned sparrows  will suddenly appear. The  white-crowned is an abundant  summer resident in our area and  will sing its beautiful, plaintive  song from brushy and weedy  areas. The golden-crowned is a  transient, passing through briefly en route to its mountain  nesting areas north of us.  Watch for the hermit thrush,  which summers in our moun  tain forests. It has a beautiful  fluting song which has been  favourably compared to the  legendary nightingale of  Europe.  Bluebirds are uncommon  visitors to our area, but there  are always a few mountain  bluebirds seen, often in logging  slash. Even scarcer is the  western bluebird which has suffered population decline in  competition with the introduced  European starling. Townshend's solitaire should also be  watched for.  In the last two or three days  of the month, other notable arrivals will be ospreys (frequently  seen in Porpoise Bay), the unpopular cowbird (a nest parasite  like European cuckoos), and  barn swallows.  April would not be complete  without that archetypal sign of  spring, the wild geese migrating  lorthwards.    , ^  This year the earliest rufous  lummingbird and the earliest  violet-green swallow were both  reported on March 19 (fairly  typical dates). A turkey vulture  was early on March 23. Western  meadowlarks were reported by  both Barbara Whistler and  Peggy Wagner.  If you have any interesting  sightings to report call Tony  Greenfield at 885-7869 (days) or  885-5539 (evenings).  New piano makes debut  by Ruth Forrester  The concert piano recently  purchased by the Arts Council  made its local debut last Sunday  at the Twilight Theatre when  concert pianist Bruce Vogt  presented a wonderful recital.  The program opened with a  Chopin piece, Nocturne in D  flat Major, which Vogt interpreted with the gentleness and  romanticism which the composer called for and which was a  moving experience for the audience.  This was followed by the  Eroica Variations by Beethoven  which comprised variations on a  theme repeated, sometimes with  strange sounds, and a very  dramatic and demanding  climax.  Next came two Preludes,  Feuilles Mortes and Puerto del  Vino by Claude Debussy.  Vogt made his program even  more enjoyable by introducing  the works on the program, explaining that, despite the fact  that Debussy had never been to  Spain he had captured the  Habanera rhythm to perfection.  It was also played to perfection.  The final offering was a Fantasia quasia sonata by Franz  Linszt composed on the Dantes  Inferno theme, a powerful work  which called for the type of skill  with which the soloist was well  able to contend.  It was indeed a joy to hear  this new piano played with such  mastery and we can only hope  that the charming and talented I  Bruce Vogt will return some day  to give such pleasure.  The concert was presented by  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council and the Sunshine Coast  Music Festival Association  whom we gratefully thank.  let the bus go for $3000," he  says. "I really need a bit of time  to think about it."  Amelia looks a bit askance at  the price but she agrees to  return the following day.  The next evening Amelia  shows up at Wilson's bus again.  "I'm afraid there's no way 1 can  meet your price," she begins,  "but I have a proposal. Since  we seem to have a lot in common and since we're both unattached, would you possibly consider travelling together? I could  sleep outside in a tent and we  could split the expenses. I hope  you don't think I'm too bold  for suggesting this, but we both  need companionship. I'm sure  we could get along."  Wilson is momentarily taken  aback by Amelia's frank and  unexpected suggestion. He is  forced to admit that it makes a  lot of sense. And he has taken a  definite liking to her. "I am certainly willing to consider such a  partnership," he says finally.  "Could you give me a little time  to think it over?"

Rhythms  of Life  ^W&_  Faith eases turmoil  by Penny Fuller  Alan Grant laboured five years to complete the scaled model of  the 84 foot ketch \onsuch. A replica of Ihe Nonsuch rests in Ihe  Museum or Man and Science in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Iron Bowl Blues  by Carl Christmas  Ben Maartman is an award  winning author, playwright and  a sometime substitute teacner,  while wife Blanche is a full  fledged English and elementary  teacher. After having raised 7  children on their little spread at  Errington on Vancouver Island,  bounced 7 grandchildren on  their respective knees, they have  become inveterate back packers.  During a trip around the  Pacific rim in 1983/84 which included a two month tour of  China, they fell in love with the  country and the people. When a  request from the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa for volunteer  teachers came to their attention,  they jumped at the chance to see  more of the country and spend  more time with the people. They  were assigned to Suzhou College near Shanghai, installed in  the largest hotel room they had  ever seen, and settled down for  a 10 month stint of teaching and  learning.  Ben's writing is terse,  humorous and witty, reflecting  his training as a social worker  with the John Howard Society  in the rehabilitation of young  Channel Eleven  offenders. Both he and Blanche's talents were tested to the  utmost while trying to teach  their young Chinese classes the  use of the English language with  which they hoped to become  proficient as tour guides. Some  of their experiences are  hilarious.  They also learned a great deal  about the building stresses and  strains of the people and  students which led to the  slaughter at Tiananmen Square;  the Four Cardinal Principals of  the Chinese Communist Party;  and the terrors of the people living under a merciless regime of  cruelty and death.  This book will give an insight  into what may be in store for  the so called 'People's Party', in  view of what is happening today  in Europe and Asia to nations  striving for democratization.  A thoroughly enjoyable read,  even on the second time around,  with an intimate peek behind  the Bamboo Curtain when their  classes ended in June of 1987, as  they journeyed from Suzhou to  Beijing via the Yangste Gorges;  the City of Chungking; the Forbidden City; and the Great Wall  of China.  Enjoy!  A time of great internal  liberation is upon us. Those  who still believe in 'coincidence'  may look back in six months  and say, "Isn't it amazing how  so much of this started around  Easter?"  The celebration of Christ's  resurrection is, this year, both  preceeded and followed by  significant astrological events.  On Good Friday, at about 3  pm, Uranus (the planet  representing individuality and  revolution) went retrograde. On  Monday at 5:53 am, Neptune  (representing spirituality and  one-ness with God) followed  suit. In other words, these two  planets appeared to begin moving backwards through the  heavens.  While this retrograde motion  is nol, in and of itself, very  significant (the outer planets do  it a couple of times every year)  the aspects of our personalities  which these planets represent,  the timing of the two changes,  and the fact that both are in the  sign of Capricorn (representing  structure and restrictions) make  this planetary action important.  Retrograde motion always indicates internal experiences.  This combination appears to indicate a period of revolution  within the individual heart, and  the dissolution of barriers and  restrictions between that heart  and the universal power.  Think back to the changes  which have taken place in the  world since early last fall, on all  continents. This same kind of  change is now to be experienced  on an internal, personal level. It  is a very powerful time and an  incredibly delicate time.  Contrast the way in which the  Berlin Wall came down and the  37  Romanian people freed themselves from the oppressive reign  of Nicolae Ceausescu.  In the first case, the block to  freedom simply crumbled painlessly, joyfully releasing a vast  potential of healing and progress. In the second, thousands  of lives were damaged in the  process of revealing the terrible  human violations which had  been taking place for decades.  The ease with which you go  through the next five months  will be determined, to a great  extent, by the nature of the  walls you have built around  your soul and your ability to  trust in something greater than  yourself.  Panic and fear are sure indications that you are holding  out in the faith department, as  are feelings of being blocked or  thwarted.  The bottom line is: if you  have faith in a power greater  than yourself, you must accept  the fact that a greater perspective than yours is handling  things in a loving way far  beyond your comprehension.  Therefore the universe, and  your life, is 'unfolding as it  should' and not necessarily as  you or 1 would have it.  1 am not suggesting abdicating all responsibility for  your life. Inaction is a choice  and therefore a kind of action.  Confusion, fear and occasional  panic may be inevitable in a  time of great change. But the intensity and duration of these  emotions may be reduced by a  healthy dose of faith.  Remember, although Romania's liberation and fall of  the Berlin Wall came about in  drastically different ways, the  end result is the same: freedom,  healing and new hope for the  future.  *$��>**  SEE OUR SPRING WEAR  *** THRIFTY'S  HELP THE  GIBSONS  IM-24M or rati 911  UpitUri, atari Kin'i lucky Dollar, Gibson.

Off we went in the beater only to remember that  our last meal had been early that morning.  All our tummies were growling so we had to find a place  to eat. We had almost reached Egmont when around a  bend we went and there, in a most picturesque setting, sat  our salvation - the Ruby Lake Resort Restaurant.  The crew were oul of the truck and had ordered before 1  could turn off the engine, they were hungry! The luncheon  menu was up to the task of satisfying our collective  hunger.  After a hale and hearty clam chowder soup we all sank  our teeth into delicious sandwiches or burgers. With our  plates heaped with homemade frech fries the growling  soon disappeared and everyone quenched their thirsts with  four of the best milkshakes we could remember, thick,  creamy and filled to the brim.  Those among us with hollow legs had soon progressed to  the dessert menu and were extolling the excellence of the  homemade pie a la mode. With a choice of raisin, apple,  blueberry and cherry there were several who managed  seconds just to sample the variety.  Once out on the water we all had ample fuel to enjoy our  kayaking with - a testiment to our wonderful lunch.  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

From the  scores they are turning in, one  might very well deduce that  when they went south their golf  clubs certainly went along.  For example, the low of a  very credible 39 was posted by  Bill Dean and the low net of 33  by Bobo Sagansky. Congratulations and welcome back fellows.  Wilf Crowe, one of the frostbite  group who toughed it out here  all winter, tied Stan Burt for second with a 34. Stan also  whacked it closest to the pin for  the KP on number 3.  Tied at 35 for third low were  Neil Reeder and Ed Koop and  Ed McAllister won the best low  of the higher handicappers.  The ladies who seem to have  an incredible array of games to  make golf more fun .played a  Kickers Tournament on Thursday in magnificent weather.  Marcia Keim won with a net  31.5 and Cathy McQuitty was a  very close second at 32.5. Lois  Haddon, Sylvia Thirlwell and  Jan Watson tied for third.  Lady members should make  a note of Thursday, April 19th  on their calendar for the spring  luncheon and meeting. All lady  members and guests are invited.  Please phone the club or sign up  in the clubhouse by April 16 if  you plan to attend.  Thirty-six eager golfers turrt-  ed out for the mixed twilight on  Monday evening April 9. The  winning team with a 47 was'  Shirley... Grout and John '  Willcock. Tied for second were  the teams of Bea McFarlane  and George Grout, and Cathy  McQuitty and Neil Reeder.

The Wooden Trophy went to  Bruce Hamilton and Sylvia  Thirlwell.  On seniors Men's Day April  10 they played as four-man  teams with Eldy Gandy's team  coming in first with a score of  100. Eldy was ably supported by  Willie Marcincowsky, George  Reid and George Grout. Close  behind at 102 was the team of  George Langham, Ed  McAllister, Bill Jack and Milt  Watson. George Reid won the  KP on number 3.  The ladies enjoyed a game of  tic-tac-toe on April 12. The winner with an excellent score of 14  out of a possible 27 was Helen  Crabb. In second place was  Ruth Norman with 11 and  Cathy McQuitty came third  with 10.  Has everyone seen-the great  work being done by the greens  staff and volunteers digging  rocks out of the second fairway  as well as clearing up the rough  and opening up the greens and  tees to the sunlight? Fantastic!  Ladles'  Fastball  The Sunshine Coast Ladies  Fastball League gets off to a flying start on April 24. This year  the league is down to five teams,  and we mean five teams.  The Geritol Gang, oh we  mean TBS, is still there (don't  forget your pills Colleen), soon  to be dethroned by one of the  four following teams.  Cedars is out in full force this  year. Welcome back Michelle  and Darcy. And the Creekers  never say die. It's all in the attitude.  Put a feather in your cap, the  Eagles are back. And from the  cellars of the Wakefield Inn.  The reasons the team's all  topped and ready to win are  diehards Peanut Cubby, Laura  and Jenica joined forces to  make yet a strong more diehard  team.  Silver Bullets now have a  loaded gun. Now look out  teams we've just begun!  Good luck to all the teams.  This season should prove to be  both competitive and fun.  Come out and support your  favourite team.

The tournament involved 16 teams this  season, all from the local area,  with the UBC team being a last  minute scratch due to exams.  Eight games were played Friday evening and a further 16  games on the Saturday, all  round robin affairs in the  Oldtimers Division and the  Open Division.  By Saturday evening the  finals were set in both divisions  and in the consolation game in  the Oldtimers Division it was  the Sunday Nite Brew Crew lining up against the Suncoast  Breakers Medics team. This  game turned out to be a titanic  defensive struggle with both,  goalies shining but it was the  hot stick of John Elson who  made the difference in a 2 to 1  win for the Brew Crew.  The consolation game in the  Open Division had the Wakefield Whalers up against a  youthful Gilligans side. The  Whalers were playing short-  handed having lost one of their  players earlier in the tournament, so their backs were  against the wall. The game see  sawed back and forth with both  teams trading goals right down  to the wire.  But it was Gilligans who tied  the game in the final seconds at  5 to 5 to send the game into  overtime. With the goalies pulled in overtime and the Whalers'  Mike Yarrow in the penalty box  for scoring into the empty net  on a blistering slap shot from  the blue line (no slap shots  allowed in Oldtimers!), it was  Gary Benner who turned hero  for the Whalers sliding a  backhand into the empty net  under a sprawling Kenny  Robinson. Whalers 6, Gilligans  5.  The Oldtimers Final was just  as exciting with the Suncoast  Breakers Hurricanes up against  the Arena Rink Rats. With  tremendous support from their  cheering section, Lance the  Zamboni man, the youthful  Rink Rats hung onto an exciting  2 to I win on the strength of 2  goals by Dave Schindel who  handled all the offence for his  team mates.  While the Hurricanes had  much of the play, they simply  failed to cash in on their  chances and the solid defence  work of Kenny Robinson. So  the Rink Rats will hold the  OTH trophy for Seven-Aside  supremacy for 1990.  In the Open Finals, the two  undefeated teams through the  round robin were to face off in  what was surely the best game  of the tournament. Last year's  defending champs the Wakefield Stan were up against the  last minute fill-in Suncoast  Breakers Dream Team. The  game turned into one of the  Stars' speed against the Dream  Teams' puck control and an exciting game it was.  Jim Gray scored on a deflection from Laurie Short to leave  the score at 1 to 0 after the first  half. But early in the second  half, the Stars equalized with  two Dreamers in the penalty  box, a goal by Kelly Cousins.  Both goalies Steve Parnham  and Danny Hemstalk were called on to come up with enormous saves but the Dreamers  regained the lead on a goal by  Trent Dixon.  Cousins equalized for the  Stars but minutes later Gray  turned a perfect pass by  defenseman Short into the winner. Ivan Dixon chipped in with  a late goal to seal the win for the  Dreamers and dethrone last  year's champs.  Dave Lamb had a big tourney  for the Dream Team scoring 10  or more goals while Bobby Dixon was a stalwart on the blue  line for the winners.  The tournament was a big  success again this season, due  mainly to the referees who spent  nearly their whole weekend at  the arena. Thanks especially go  out to Mike Gaudette, Rory  Green, Jessie Stretch, Tyler  Gray, Aaron Hamilton, Matt  Radymski and Matt Fawcus.  Thanks and a super job, guys!  Thanks also go out to Laurie  Gray and her concession crew  for a super job on the Breakers  burgers and pancake breakfasts. It made it much easier to  be at the arena with a good  spread to choose from and the  homecooking was great.  No more hockey until September. See you next season.  S.C   GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB  Bowman tourney  by Frank Nanson  The winner of the Ruth  Bowman Tournament on April  10 was Marg Skelcher with a net  33 for the nine holes. The  runner-up was Doreen Gregory  with a 33 and-a-half.  The Senior Men had a turnout of 88 with three guests on  Thursday last. The play was run  with designated hitters on each  team for certain holes. The winning team consisted of Bill  Clark, Larry Farr, Bill  Sutherland, and Al Dean and  finished with a net of 87 and-a-  half taking the big prize.  Second place went to the  team of Les Head, Ozzie Hin-  cks, Bob Walker, George Pare';  and Harry Woodman.  Bill Lawrence, who is well  known as our Mexican  representative during the colder  months made a beautiful drive  to land closest to the hole on the  18th green taking home the  bacon for that feat.  Last but not least came the  team of Ed Laidlaw, Bert  Cheal, J. Ross, Roy Taylor, and  Frank Taber, who as a group  must have run out of tees and  wanted to replenish their supply.  I would like to close by adding a word of congratulations  from all of us to Walt  McMillan. Walt won the gold  medal for his age group in the  Molson's Canadian National  Ski Tournament this winter at  Whistler in the combines Slalom  and Grand Slalom. Walt nearly  had a win last year when he  missed one gate during the race,  but apparently made certain of  it this year. You know this guy  can also play a very good game  of golf.

Remember next time  Michelle Hall is the first woman from the Gibsons Shito-Ryu  Itosukai Karate Club to receive her first degree black belt.  Woman earns black belt  Michelle Hall of the Gibsons  Shito-Ryu Itosukai Karate Club  recently became a 'Shodan' or  first degree black belt. The exam took place at a two day  workshop in Vancouver.  Michelle has been a student at  the Gibsons 'dojo' for about  five years and would probably  agree that becoming a 'black  belt' was no easy task.  James McCarthy received his  'Nidan' or second degree black  belt, also at this workshop.  In a more recent belt test held  in Gibsons, mar-y of the  students successfully progressed  to higher coloured belts.  The Gibsons Club practices  Tuesdays and Thursdays at St.  Aidan's Hall in Roberts Creek.  For more information call  James McCarthy at 886-8347.

Editor:  In the near future Premier  Vander Zalm may call a provincial election. When the Sqpreds  built the Coquihalla Highway,  they squandered between $300  million to a half a billion dollars  on 'fast tracking' that project.  Shortly after this financial incompetence they decided to cut  funding to, and close beds in,  Vancouver's Children's Hospital. They also intended to shuffle paper and play financial shell  games by shipping sick children  out of the province for treatment.  At that time I wrote letters to  the Vancouver newspapers expressing my disgust with the  Social Credit government. 1  ended these letters by saying,  "In the next provincial election  remember the Coquihalla and  Children's Hospital."  This same political party has  again displayed its financial im-  competence by virtually giving  away the centre of the city of  Vancouver (Expo land sales) to  foreign investors. BC residents  have lost millions of dollars in  profits that should have gone  into the coffers of the provincial  taxpayer.  Now, here on the Sunshine  Coast, we see the same attitude  of the same government  towards our local homecare  workers. This government pays  these women wages that are little better than welfare in return  for the valuable services they  provide. It's another perfect example of false economics and  wage discrimination against  women. It's the government  that should set the example by  paying fair wages to women not  simply pay lip service to the problem!  I now remind voters: In the  next provincial election  remember the Expo land give  away and our local homecare  workers!  Operation  Eyesight  Editor: ��� ���   "   ' "���  Soon the wonder of ther'  spring season will be upon us as'  much of the earth slowly  awakens from its winter  slumber. Every spring Mother  Nature, in an infinite array of  miracles, graces the land, sea  and sky with precious gifts of  brilliant colour and new life that  unfold before our eyes.  Imagine, though, not having  the eyes to see the splendour of  nature's miracles. A rainbow, a  breathtaking sunset, a flower, a  young bird taking flight, or the  laughter in a child's eyes. Imagine being cloaked in robes of  darkness that leave you dependent on others, that slowly  erode your dignity and ultimately dampen the spark of life to a  flickering ember.  For millions of blind children, women and men in  developing countries, this is  their fate. But just as the warm  sun and nurturing rain activate  a spark of life in spring, so too  does the work of Operation  Eyesight Universal (OEU).  Since 1963, this registered  Canadian charitable organization has been actively involved  in the treatment and prevention  of blindness in lesser developed  countries. Each year OEU, in  co-operation with other organizations, is instrumental in  releasing tens of thousands of  people from the shackles of  blindness.  Through the generosity of  Canadians as well as individual  contributors from other nations, OEU is able to provide efficient medical and related support services that can give the  precious gift of sight to a  cataract patient in the developing world for only $25.  So this spring, as you see ther  flowers bloom and the rainbows')  appear, I invite you all to pause  for a moment and think of the  blind in developing countries,  not as statistics but as viable,  yearning, sensing human beings  that are woven together with us  in the miraculous tapestry of  human experience.  I urge you to reach out to  them with your hearts, your  minds and your financial support so that they can experience  the exquisite joy of newly-found  sight.

Sonmor  Calgary, Alberta  The Social Credit government is financially incompetent  and callous in social programming. Remember these two examples when you mark your  next ballot. With a simple X we  all have the power to throw  these incompetent, inconflict,  discriminatory clowns out of  office and get on with building a  better province for ourselves  and our children.  Surely the people of this province will not again be bought  by Fantastic Zalm's false promises of cheap beer!  Mac Richardson  Settle the  strike  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  John Jansen  Minister of Health  Victoria, BC  When are you going to settle  the Homemakers' strike? 1 am  85 years old, living alone and  am trying to get by on my own  instead of living in an old age  home.  It is absolutely essential that I  have help come in from the outside. Everyone knows that these  girls are notoriously underpaid.  Have you tried living and raising a family on $6 an hour? It is  absolutely impossible. 1 think  wages should be raised to at  least a minimum of $9 per hour.  Many of these women are  single parent families and are  doing yeoman service. Therefore 1 would urge you to im-  mediatley come down on the  side of fair play in the interests  of these women and grant them  a substantial wage increase.  I would like to point out that  if the OAPs that these girls look  after were to have to go into old  age homes the cost to the  government would be greatly in  excess of a wage increase.  I am hoping you will see your  way clear to act quickly in granting a long overdue wage increase and at the same time help  old age pensioners stay in their  own homes.  W.L.

Book review  Michener misses the mark  by Caryl Worden  A master of historical Action,  James A. Michener sets his pen  to recounting the development  of nations. Epics such as The  Covenant, Tales from the South  Pacific and his 36 other titles  cast some understanding on current international situations.  In Journey - A Quest for  Canadian Gold (McClelland &  Stewart), Michener misses the  mark. The most lively part of  this tale is in the final chapter,  where Ihe author explains how  he came to write the book.  Originally intended as a segment in his book Alaska,  Journey is the account of how  four blue-blooded Brits and  their loyal Irish man-servant  plunged into the northern gold  rush of the I890's. With the  Alaska manuscript running too  long, Michener and his publisher decided to pull this portion, which dealt only with  escapades on Canadian soil  anyway.  Lord Luton, the adventurers'  leader, says from the beginning  that he wishes to reach Dawson  City in the Yukon by strictly  Canadian routes. At the time,  most gold seekers headed from  Seattle north to Alaska then  down into Canada's gold fields.  Michener's own fascination  with the early explorations of  the Mackenzie River system  become Luton's, and the author  adds a weak episode concerning  Luton's grandfather to justify  the character's determination to  avoid American soil.  Luton considers it a patriotic  duty, which seems charming al  A  ��� ������������  LOOS WANTED  All Species  TOP PRICES PAID  270-0693  886-8377  ���DELTA WEST FOREST SALES LTD.  first, but it becomes a fetish that  predictably leads to tragedy for  members of his expedition.  in fact, Journey contains little anticipation. Michener turns  the basic writing technique of  foreshadowing into glaring  headlamps.  In the middle of the book, the  group must choose between two  routes to traverse the imposing  mountain peaks that separate  them from their destination.  They have been told repeatedly  Ihe foolhardiness of one way,  yet Lord Luton sticks to his  original plan. He feels the alternate route takes them perilously  close to US turf.  Through several chapters his  own companions argue with  him. The impatient reader can  think only,' 'Alright, already,  get on with it', and the ultimate  difficulties that occur because  of this pigheadedness are an  anti-climax.  Actually, it is in dealing with  Ihe process of death that  Michener captivates the imagination. When scurvy hits the  men during their second, unexpected, winter of the trek, the  progress of the disease evokes  both repugnance and curiosity.  The fine threads that bind these  men together are also finally exposed.

Poplar*. $8.95  MURRAY NURSERIES  290-5963 iusuulv ton free,  One would expect that a story  of thin-skinned Englishmen pitted against the wild and unexpected Canadian north would  provide Michener with a wealth  of hard-edged thrills.  But the account is distant,  vague, with little colour added  to the facts. In their boal, the  Sweet A/ton, the group comes  across a band of Hans Indians  who had rarely seen white men  before. At first the natives are  frightened, seeing expedition  member Trevor Blythe holding  a telescope and mistaking it for  a gun. Exciting possibilities,  surely?  "...he showed first one, then  another how the telescope  worked, and soon he had them  pacified and generally friendly.  ...before the A/ton was  allowed to move into the Peel  (river), there had to be a feast  and dancing and the chanting of  good luck songs." This reads  more like a high school history  text than a high adventure  novel.  However, in the book's final  chapter, Michener's personal  'reflections' on writing the book  provide insight into both the  man and the writing craft.  Michener exposes details of  the research methods required  for the lengthy books he writes,  and how seemingly unimportant  characters can take on lives of  their own in imagination. For  anyone who writes for a living,  or is interested in the writing  process at all, these are  fascinating revelations.  He explains his life-long interest in our country thanks to  canoe trips taken in Ontario in  his youth. Canada's solution  for a bilingual society also entrances him, as he sees such problems rising for Hispanic  Americans (one wonders of his  reaction to recent 'official  language' events across  Canada).  And of course there's a  familial tie to the true north  strong and free - his cousin being one time governor-general  Roland Michener.  Michener slates his aim in  writing Journey was "to acquaint American readers with  facts about Canadian existence,  and to demonstrate to Canadian  readers my respect for the  history and achievements of  their country."  Well, thanks James; but I  think our own authors can accomplish that task much better.  Spring  campaign  Backed by research that  shows the Spring period has a  high level of drinking driving  accidents, police throughout  British Columbia will be mounting an intensive roadcheck enforcement campaign. Between  April 13 and May 4, over  300,000 drivers will be stopped  during the province-wide Spring  CounterAttack against drinking  driving.  A first offence involves a  minimum sentence of a $300  fine and a one-year prohibition  from driving. A second offence  requires an additional minimum  14 days in prison.  During the 1989 three-week  Spring CounterAttack, police  stopped 321,925 vehicles. They  laid 930 drinking driving  charges under the Canadian  Criminal Code, gave out 1590  suspensions for drinking and  driving under Ihe Motor Vehicle  Act of BC, and laid 49,695  other driving-related charges.

Police news  A change jf times for the  Safe Boating display in the Sunnycrest Mall. It is now scheduled for June 1 and 2.  RCMP crew members of the  patrol vessel Regina will be aided by Gibsons RCMP  members. The theme of the  display is "The Hidden Crime  Wave - the legal consequences  of alcohol and boating".  Bayside Sawmills reported  the theft of a large amount of  copper cable and a 36-inch  chainsaw on April 9.  Information requested. Call  Gibsons RCMP or Crimestop-  pers at 886-TIPS.  The RCMP passes on information on two kidnap victims  believed still alive, and still held  by kidnappers.  The victims are Tara Leigh  Calico, abducted while riding  her bicycle, and Michael Paul  Henley, missing while on a  wilderness trip.  Eight months after the two  separate abductions a photo  dropped in a parking lot in  another state was proven to be  one of the two persons shown  bound on a bed in a van.  Tara is now 21 years of age, 5  foot, 7 inches, about 120  pounds. Henley is 12, brown  eyes, blond hair. The families  still hope to see them again.  This call for information is continent wide.  Diapers endorsed  Sunshine Coast Regional  District board directors voted to  support the use of cloth diapers  on the Sunshine Coast, last  Thursday night. The motion  was made in response to a  presentation by Jennifer  Johnson who has started the  Sunshine Diaper Service.  Johnson told the meeting,  "Environmental awareness has  brought attention to our landfill  site on the Sunshine Coast. If  we don't do something to address the problem, it's going to  end up in each of our backyards."  According to Johnson,  disposable diapers add 50 to 60  diapers per week per child to the  growing mountain of household  garbage.  "The diapers," she  said, "can take up to 500 years  to decompose."  Over 100 viruses may remain  alive in the diapers for over two  weeks, leaching into the water  system or contaminating people  who come in contact with the  garbage.  Director Gordon Wilson  agreed the use of disposable  diapers is detrimental to the environment, but said he would  have a hard time endorsing a  particular business.  Johnson asked if the board is  able to support the use of cloth  as opposed lo disposable  diapers on the Sunshine Coast,  and Wilson introduced the motion to that affect, which passed  unanimously.

The final stand-off occurred  over a small stretch of foreshore  in Tuwanek. The forest industry  wanted the 24 or so hectares  designated 'Resource Management' to accommodate the  possibility of future log dump.  Local residents and others  fought for a recreational  designation.  ITie "final" draft brought to  the Foreshore Advisory Task  Force (FATF) last October left  the strip an "area of conflict"  with specific procedures lo be  followed in resolving the question al a future time. Although  initially accepted by those present at the October 4 meeting, it  was later rejected bv the Council of Forest Industries (COF1)  and subsequently the Ministry  of Forests.  Last Tuesday saw a resolution to the disagreement with a  simple wording change in the  definition of 'Area of Conflict'  which will be included in the  text of the document. The wording accepted by everyone, including the COFI representative  was, "Critical for recreation  -boating, diving, foreshore use.  Ministry of Forests' plans indicate possible logging on  upland areas which may require  use of this area for dumping;  residents are concerned over the  impacts of proposed intermittent use of this as a log dump  site. Sensitivities of nearby  residents to possible intrusions  of forestry activity on lifestyles  need to be addressed."  I'nder the terms of the process for changing designations,  all interested parties are  guaranteed a hearing before any  primary designation is given to  this piece of foreshore.  With the agreement to officially recognize the conflict of  the Tuwanek area, the Sechelt  Inlet Study is complete. This  revolutionary document is the  first of its kind in this province.  In essence, if not in law, it has  zoned all the waters of Sechelt,  Salmon and Narrows Inlets.  The signatory agencies have all  agreed to, "...support and cooperate with the intent of the  Sechelts Inlets Coastal Strategy  including the Area Designation  Plan and policies...".  These agencies include all  relevent local governments; the  Provincial Ministries of  Agriculture and Fisheries,  Crown Lands, Environment,  Forests, Municipal Affairs,  Federal Fisheries and Oceans  and citizens groups representing  affected residents.

French Immersion |       Reconsidered once more  by Rose Nicholson  Temporary use permits that  would see the development of  short term accommodation to  alleviate the critical housing  shortage on the Coast were considered by a committee of  Sechelt Council at a meeting on  April 11.  Don Siemens, acting as agent  for the developers, described for  the committee plans to provide  trailer spaces on properties in  East Porpoise Bay and on Gun  Club Road.  Ray Stockwell is proposing  the installation of a 40-space  temporary trailer park on his  property in East Porpoise Bay  between Allen and Yew Streets,  and Mr. Ward is asking for approval of a 15-space park on  Gun Club Road. t' ��� ��� ~-  Stockwell is asking for a two-  year temporary permit, and indicated thai he will subdivide"  the property for residential use  after that time.  After a lengthy discussion,  the committee decided on  recommendations which will be  brought to council for a decision at Ihe regular meeting of  April 18.  Recommendations on the  Stockwell property call for  single-family, self-contained  units to be connected to an approved septic disposal system;  gravel roads with adequate ditching and dust-proofing and a  $10,000 letter of credit to ensure  removal of the facilities at the  end of the permit period.  As an initial survey of the  residents on Gun Club Road  showed that 40 per cent have  concerns about that development, the committee recom-  - mended a public hearing to  discuss the issue.  by Rose Nicholson  In an attempt to resolve the  conflict over French Immersion, school trustees will be  looking at two options. At the  April 10 school board meeting,  Trustees Lynn Chapman and  Maureen Clayton served notice  that at the next board meeting  of April 24, they will bring forward motions that may modify  the February decision to phase  out Early French Immersion  (EFI) and replace it with Middle  French Immersion (MFI).

Last week's meeting was  preceeded by an open forum  held at Elphinstone gym. The  forum was attended by about  200 people representing both  sides of the issue.  A presentation by the Sunshine Coast Parents for French  (SCPF) asked that the February  decision be immediately  rescinded. It was pointed out  that a motion could not be  rescinded but a motion to  reconsider would be possible.  The SCPF presentation expressed concern aboul the process used by the board to reach  its decision and asked that the  board clearly outline the problems involved in the Fl program and the parents be consulted in the decision-making  process.  Replying to the SCPF brief,  Trustee Maureen Clayton said,  "Some of the things you say are  true, and some simply arc not  true. Last June when we tried to  bring debate into the public  forum, we were harassed, we  were threatened and we were  put inlo a position where we fell  very uncomfortable with the  type of reaction we were getting...The board, and I think  justifiably so, decided to go into  closed doors to make this decision."  Clayton went on to discuss  the problems which have  developed around the EFI program, citing examples of overcrowding, extra busing costs,  teacher recruitment problems,  impact on the regular program  and a division that is developing  between the children in the two  programs.  "There is a sense that the  program is not for the whole  community, that there are two  sets of rules.. .These are the problems that I as a trustee get told  about. You wanted to know  some of the problems. Please  listen to them, because maybe,  by co-operation, we can understand them."
